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.
Video has surfaced of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) telling a meeting of the islamofascist hate group CAIR that 9-11 was just “some people did something.” Sure. And World War II was that “spot of unpleasantness with that German chap.”
Omar is defending herself against criticism over her remarks by retreating to the usual charges of “islamophobia;” even accusing Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) of “dangerous incitement” for quoting her abominable excuses for the 9-11 terrorists. That’s the important lesson here: anti-Semitic muslims are the real victims of 9-11.
Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) has announced he intends to form a commission to study the idea of paying African-Americans “reparations” for slavery. The idea of forcing white people to give money to black people - for something that happened before any of them were alive - is becoming a central issue for the Democrats’ 2020 strategy. A “white people” tax. There’s a unifying idea.
Rep. Eric Swalwell responded to pushback over his plan to forcibly “buy back” the millions of AR-15s and other so-called “assault rifles” from legal owners. The Congressman, who is running on a national gun confiscation platform, tweeted to a critic: “Keep your #2A rights. Keep your shotguns, keep your pistols, keep your rifles. I just want to take the most dangerous weapons out of the hands of the most dangerous people.” Swalwell didn’t clarify which weapons and people he considers “dangerous,” but given his previous threats of nuclear annihilation for gun owners, the smart money is on “all.”
During a hearing of the House Financial Services Committee, Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) blasted representatives for several major banks over their efforts to curb student loan debt. The execs gently reminded Waters that student loans were nationalized under President Barack Obama nearly a decade ago; something they were doubtless surprised to learn the Chair of the committee which oversees banks didn’t know. Don’t blame Maxine. OneUnited didn’t include that in her “Banks’n’U” primer.
During an appearance before the Senate Appropriations subcommittee that oversees the Justice Department, Attorney General William Barr testified that he thinks “spying did occur” against the campaign of President Donald Trump during the 2016 election. With Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) preparing to send criminal referrals over the alleged incidents, Democrats were none too pleased to hear Barr’s concerns. The last time the Democrats seemed this nervous, John Podesta was telling them to go home, and Hillary would release a statement in the morning.
Scientists have announced that a consortium of observers making up the Event Horizon Telescope have successfully produced an image of a black hole. The supermassive black hole at the center of the Messier 87 galaxy is nearly 55 million light years away from Earth, and its mass is estimated at over 6 billion times that of our own Sun. Or approximately the size of Alec Baldwin’s head.
