Notre Dame

Having exploited capitalism to great effect, Bernie sets about ensuring no one else can.

Having exploited capitalism to great effect, Bernie sets about ensuring no one else can.

  • Democrats couldn’t wait to pounce on the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, exploiting the tragedy to throw firebombs at President Trump.  Appearing on leftist outlet MSNBC, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) told liberal buffoon Chris Matthews "What (Trump) has done to the Constitution and the rule of law is as bad as that fire did to Notre Dame."  Cohen, who publicly opposes much of the Bill of Rights, declined to cite examples, possibly because he was too busy setting the 1st and 2nd Amendments on fire.

  • Maybe Senator Bernie Sanders (C-VT) should have taken the left’s advice, and avoided appearing on Fox News for a “town hall.”  Confronted by non-softball questions, the ancient communist faltered badly.  In addition to his assertion that making millions of dollars off a bestseller isn’t capitalism, he also admitted his plan to nationalize American healthcare will require “more in taxes.”  Welp, that’s the Bernie show, folks.  I hope they had some lovely parting gifts for him backstage.

  • Anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) continued whining about the blowback she’s received for her repeated racist comments, claiming an uptick in threats against her since President Donald Trump called attention to her address to islamofascist hate group CAIR, in which she suggested 9-11 was just “some people did something.”  Kinda like the kids from Covington Catholic, except they were falsely accused.

  • As Tax Day passed, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) took one last shot at the wrong people, blaming “Trump’s tax cuts for the wealthy” for the plight of “California families.”  While DiFi ignored the fact that lower refunds mean people overpaid less, she also ignored the fact that “California families” pay more because California politicians take more.  Of course, when you’ve made millions without holding a private sector job, your perspective can get a little warped.

  • DiFi isn’t the only dummy in Californistan.  Controversy has enveloped Laguna Beach, thanks to the police department’s test run of a new decal for their police vehicles which incorporates – gasp – the American Flag.  Since you hate America so much, why not just leave?  Secession is just a vote away!

  • According to Democrat Presidential hopeful, South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, his image has gone from “adorable” to “plausible” in just a couple of months.  That comes as news to most Americans, for whom Petey has yet to reach “identifiable.”

  • Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld is throwing his hat in the ring.  The former Libertarian Party nominee has announced a challenge to President Trump for the Republican nomination.  Good luck, Billy-boy.  If you work extra-hard, you might catch up to Buttigieg.

  • Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) rocked the Democrats’ boat, declaring "We do have a problem at the southern border. Democrats should not deny that."  While some suggested the self-proclaimed “Spartacus” is merely trying to set himself apart from his Democratic competitors, I can’t help but notice that Booker suddenly realized there's a crisis at the border right after Trump suggested housing the illegals in his district.

  • And, fresh off publicly destroying Democrat Congressmen Ted Lieu (D-CA) and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) for their attempts to smear her, conservative activist Candace Owens faced down a mob of “antifa” thugs and other liberal who threatened to assault her at the University of Pennsylvania.  The media remained largely silent on the racist, misogynist hate speech the Democrats incited against an African-American woman.  Sorry Candace, but once you step off their plantation, you’re on your own.

Words are insufficient.

Words are insufficient.

  • Tragedy struck civilization as fire engulfed the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.  Although parts of the structure appear to have survived, the damage to the nearly 800 year-old structure is catastrophic.  No punchline; it’s just sad.

  • Tax Day 2019 arrived, and with it, liberal heavyweights’ incorrect assertions about how it works.  Outlets from the New York Times to Alyssa Milano shrieked bloody murder over the fact that many Americans’ refunds are down this year, a change they “blamed” on the GOP tax cut.  Far be it for me to correct an esteemed economist like Sam from "Who's the Boss," but the refunds are down because Americans overpaid less, thanks entirely to the GOP tax cut. 

  • Liberals ginned up the outrage meter as Attorney General William Barr is expected to release a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report as early as Thursday.  The left is already floating the conspiracy theory that the redactions will obscure any evidence of wrongdoing by President Donald Trump.  Since Mueller himself approved the redactions, I guess this means he’s off their Christmas card list.

  • South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg may be running for President in the wrong country.  Buttigieg whined to a small gathering that the United States isn’t “much of a democracy when twice in my lifetime, the Electoral College has overruled the American people…"  The United States isn’t a Democracy at all; it’s a republic.  I thought this guy was a Rhodes Scholar?

  • Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) may not have much of a Presidential campaign, he appears committed to destroying what campaign he does have.  The rabid anti-liberty candidate expanded his plan to confiscate legally-owned firearms to include imprisoning legal firearm owners who resist his government overreach.  If the Democrats nominate Nuke-boy, even BARRON Trump could beat him.

  • Among those racing to defend anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN): anti-liberty activist David Hogg.  Hogg, infamous for exploiting the Parkland attack for fame and fortune, asked “Can we take a moment to think about how triggering the video trump posted for the thousands of people that lost someone they knew in 9/11?”  Gee Junior, what's more "triggering;" someone dismissing 9-11 as "something," or a video of them doing it?

  • An intramural fight has broken out inside the Democrat Party.  After dismissing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s branch of her party as “like, 5 people,”  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi delivered another spanking, suggesting Chiquita Khrushchev isn’t quite the groundbreaker she thinks she is, claiming: “A glass of water with a ‘D’ next to its name” could have won NY-14.  A glass of water might even have inspired more than 15% of the district’s voters to bother going to the polls.
