Senator Elizabeth Warren is campaigning on free stuff for everyone. The Massachusetts Democrat announced her administration would make healthcare and pre-K through college free, and would charge off Americans’ student loan debt, all by imposing a “2% tax on the wealthiest families in the country.” For those of you who remember the 80s, that’s known as the “Underhill’s American Express Card” school of economics. For those of you who remember anything, it’s known as “theft.”
While Warren plans to give away the house, Bernie Sanders has some interesting ideas as to whom to give it to. The near-octogenarian communist from Vermont wants to ensure convicted felons and terrorists get their chance to dine at the taxpayer trough; informing the audience for CNN’s latest Democratic candidate forum that he thinks denying votes to people like the Boston Marathon bomber and the white supremacist who murdered 9 people in Charleston, S.C. is “suppression.” As opposed to what they did, which is a lot more than just “suppressing votes.”
Senator Kamala Harris has her own plan to appeal to liberal voters. The former California Attorney General – and current gun owner – says if she’s elected, she’ll give Congress “100 days..to get their act together and have the courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws, and if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action." Her first executive action would need to be suspending the separation of powers, which will go about as well as her second one suspending the Bill of Rights.
The watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Assistant FBI Director Bill Priestap told them while under oath that the bureau discovered nearly 50,000 emails Hillary Clinton tried to destroy, and they found them in the Executive Office of President Obama. The revelation disproves both Clinton’s protestations of innocence, and Obama’s claim that he only learned of her illegal communications through “news reports.” “But her emails” reveal there was a lot more than “a smidgen of corruption” in the Obama administration.
The Washington Post is worried that there may be consequences from Sunday’s islamofascist bomb attack on Christians in Sri Lanka. The Post fretted that the “Sri Lanka church bombings stoke far-right anger in the West.” Freakin' far-right wingers, always <checks notes> angry at terrorists who bomb churches.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced he intends to introduce a resolution naming a new town in the Golan Heights for President Trump. And that, my friends, is how you own the libs.
Disgraced actor Jussie Smollett may be headed back to court. The Osundairo brothers, whom Smollett paid to help him stage the now-infamous January hoax, have retained counsel, and are going to sue Smollett and his attorneys for defamation. Damn Jussie. That’s turning out to be one expensive Subway sandwich.
From the liberal rage mob to Beto’s old job, it’s time for a look back at the week that was. The Last Stop on the Right™ presents your Week In REview! It’s time to check the WIRE!
Things the Democrat/media complex got wrong about Nick Sandmann and Covington Catholic High School:
- They started it.
- They’re racists.
- They’re homophobes.
Which explains why the media spent the rest of the week whining about how everyone is being mean to them.
Liberals: “OK, so maybe Nathan Phillips did start the confrontation with Nick Sandmann. But the little brat deserved it, for wearing a ‘MAGA’ hat!” Going after kids for what they’re wearing on their heads. That’s never gone bad before.
The king daddy victim-shaming award goes to NBC News contributor Noah Berlatsky, who justified the liberal swarm on Covington student Nick Sandmann, “Sandmann said he was an silent bystander. But his MAGA hat spoke for him.”
Turns out, Nathan Phillips isn’t quite the squared-away Marine the Democrat/media complex wanted us to believe he is. Not only did he not face combat in Vietnam, he didn’t join the Corps until after they had withdrawn from Vietnam. But he’s a war hero! At least, that’s what Master Guns Fatty McStolenValor here says.
The government shutdown slithered past the 1-month mark this week, with the 535 members of the Senate and House pocketing their six-figure paychecks despite getting no closer to breaking the impasse. I know it won’t cover 800,000 people, but I know where we can save 535 six-figure salaries.
The New York State Assembly gave themselves a standing ovation this week for passing a bill allowing abortion up to the moment of birth. Imagine being so bent that you're celebrating being able kill babies literally up to the moment they leave the womb. Betcha real money some of these anti-lifers wish they could kill them even later.
All the womyn turned out for the latest Women’s (sic) March. For a “Women’s March,” they sure seem to hate Jews a lot.
The people of Venezuela hit their own limit this week, filling the streets to protest yet another theft of the electoral process by the communist government. American liberals were quick to denounce the ascension of President Juan Guaido as a “coup.” Siding with the communist dictators who bankrupted and starved a country, to own the cons.
President Donald Trump and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continued their poop fight in the D.C. monkey house this week, with Pelosi formally uninviting Trump from delivering the State of the Union, Trump swearing he would do it anyway, and Americans wishing they’d both shut the hell up.
Trump: Imma deliver that State of the Union!
Pelosi: Not in my house, Jack!
Meanwhile, back at BuzzFeed headquarters: "We really f*cked up that Trump-Cohen story. How should we repair the damage?"
Buzzfeed caught their comeuppance fairly quickly. The embattled outlet joined leftist media nests including Gannett, Huffington Post, and Yahoo in announcing major layoffs this week. Almost like fake news doesn’t sell like they’d hoped.
Democrats got their grins on this week when a new Public Policy Polling survey indicated every one of the 7 current likely contenders for the Democratic 2020 Presidential nomination would beat Trump in a head-to-head battle.
And finally, video surfaced this week of a young Robert Francis O’Rourke, performing covers of punk classics while dressed in a sheep mask and a giant onesie. It sounds even worse than it looks. And it doesn’t look good.
And that’s your week in review! For the Last Stop on the Right, I’m Ben Crystal saying “always check The WIRE!”
The illegal alien accused of murdering Officer Ron Singh of the Newman, CA police enjoyed a great deal of help evading justice, and all of it will make you angry.
Gustavo Perez Arriaga, already in the United States illegally, was apprehended after a 2 day manhunt which caught up to him near Bakersfield, CA. Arriaga, who has been linked to the violent Surenos street gang, was apparently trying to run to Mexico, and got helping hands from no fewer than 7 people, all of whom are also illegally trespassing on American soil.
NOT facing justice for their role in Arriaga’s flight from justice: Democrats and associated hate groups who have not only fought efforts to rein in the invasion of violent illegal aliens, but have also actively obstructed them through so-called “sanctuary” laws. In Californistan, Governor Jerry Brown, Senator Kamala Harris, and many other statewide elected officials endorse protecting illegal aliens from consequences. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf even tipped off illegals to upcoming ICE sweeps, sheltering monsters like Arriaga so they can plan their next assault on decency without the hassle of visits from those pesky CBP agents.
People are being slaughtered in the streets by violent foreign invaders, and the left has cast their lot with the slaughterers. Where is the sanctuary for the slaughter-ees?
