#1: Connecticut woman says then-Vice President Joe Biden touched her inappropriately at a Greenwich fundraiser in 2009

The Hartford Courant reports in a 2 April 2019 article how a Connecticut woman has charged Joe Biden with unwanted advances.

A Connecticut woman says Joe Biden touched her inappropriately and rubbed noses with her during a 2009 political fundraiser in Greenwich when he was vice president, drawing further scrutiny to the Democrat and his history of unwanted contact with women as he ponders a presidential run.

“It wasn’t sexual, but he did grab me by the head,” Amy Lappos told The Courant Monday. “He put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me. When he was pulling me in, I thought he was going to kiss me on the mouth.”

Lappos posted about the alleged incident on the Facebook page of Connecticut Women in Politics Sunday in response to a similar account by former Nevada legislator Lucy Flores, which comes as Biden is considering a 2020 run for president. Flores accused Biden of kissing her on the back of her head in 2014, when she was a candidate for lieutenant governor.

Lappos, 43, who is now a freelance worker with nonprofit agencies, said she felt extremely uncomfortable when Biden approached her at the 2009 fundraiser for U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, D-4th, where she was volunteering. At the time, Lappos was a congressional aide to Himes, who she said was not in the room when the incident took place.

“I never filed a complaint, to be honest, because he was the vice president. I was a nobody,” Lappos said. “There’s absolutely a line of decency. There’s a line of respect. Crossing that line is not grandfatherly. It’s not cultural. It’s not affection. It’s sexism or misogyny.”

The weird thing is that, so far, none of these “problems” with Joe Biden are illegal. They’re weird. They’re something that I would not allow him to do to any 14-year-old girl under my care, but they’re not illegal acts.

The thing that has been at work here has been the full-blown identity politics that the Obama regime perfected.

Well, if you like your politician, you can keep your politician.

#2: MeToo Movement Strikes Again: Even MORE Women Accuse Biden of Sexual Harassment

2-Biden

A 2 April 2019 article on Townhall tells us about more women who have reportedly come forward with tales of impropriety against Joe Biden.

Two more women stepped forward on Tuesday and accused former Vice President Joe Biden (D) of sexual harassment. The women, Caitlyn Caruso and D. J. Hill, told their stories to The New York Times.

Here’s what took place, according to The Hill:

Caruso, 22, told the Times that Biden rested his hand on her thigh even as she attempted to show her discomfort by squirming in her seat during a sexual assault event at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas. Caruso, who was 19 at the time, added that Biden hugged her “just a little bit too long.”

She told the newspaper that the interaction was uncomfortable because she had just discussed a time she was sexually assaulted and expected Biden to be aware of physical boundaries.

“It doesn’t even really cross your mind that such a person would dare perpetuate harm like that,” she told the paper. “These are supposed to be people you can trust.”

Hill, 59, told the Times that while taking a photograph with Biden in 2012, the then-vice president placed his hand on her shoulder and began moving it down her back, something she said made her “very uncomfortable.”

“Only he knows his intent,” she added.

While I don’t come anywhere near Uncle Joe’s politics, this stupid stuff is not criminal.

Maybe #MeToo (or Bernie Sanders) would like to make it a felony for a short time, but the law now …

#3: More identity politics

#3: Democrats double down on identity politics with Pete Buttigieg

As pointed out by a 6 April 2019 on SFGate, it seeems that Democrats are intent on doubling down on identity politics. In this case, Pete Buttigieg is counting on riding the label of “gay” into the White House.

Pete Buttigieg sat in the back of a black SUV with a couple of staffers, sipping a still-steeping cup of tea to ease the fatigue from his suddenly frenetic schedule, when he looked out the window and interrupted himself.

“Man,” said Buttigieg, taking in the rainbow-hued signs and colorfully dressed passersby that signaled he had entered West Hollywood, Los Angeles’ de facto gay neighborhood. “It got real gay real quick out there.”

Few Democratic presidential candidates could assess their surroundings so bluntly without seeming painfully out of line. But Buttigieg is not like any other Democratic presidential candidate – in part, if not exclusively, because he is gay.

Although I did not understand the electorate’s support of a moral reprobate like Bill Clinton, I understand a little of their desire to keep government out of private affairs. Considering that, Obama and his NSA scandal should have been a bigger deal (except for the cover provided by the Democrat press).

Still, Democrats are going to have to provide more of a reason for voter support than “Vote for me, I’m gay.”

#4: AOC – You Guys, They Amended the Constitution to Stop FDR From Running Again, or Something

As we see in a 1 April 2019 article on Townhall, AOC has uttered another set of indefensible statements about FDR.

According to her supporters, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a singular obsession of the right-wing media. This framing ignores the indisputable reality that she’s a creation of the mainstream and left-wing media, heralded and celebrated as the fresh face of a new generation of hard-charging progressives. She’s also succeeding in yanking her party leftward, as multiple presidential candidates have endorsed her fanatical and fanciful “green new deal” legislation — although they all scurried behind a wall of “present” votes when the moment to support the resolution actually arrived.

Her latest media showcase occurred on MSNBC late last week, during with the freshman Congresswoman made all sorts of attention-grabbing assertions and comparisons — including advancing the notion that “environmental justice” must only be achieved alongside “economic justice,” which certainly won’t hlep dispel many skeptics’ suspicion that programs like the green new deal are less about addressing an urgent crisis, and more about redistributing wealth and amassing governmental control. Among other topics, she explained that the Tea Party is different than her movement because unlike those xenophobic white supremacists, she doesn’t call her opponents names:

Seems legit, and duly noted. She went on to make the following claim about the success of aggressive statism in American politics. FDR’s vast expansion of government was so popular, she averred, that opponents had to amend the constitution to prevent him from winning again:

Her point is correct, except for the fact that (a) President Roosevelt (who ignored the Washington-set precedent of serving a maximum of two consecutive terms) had been dead for roughly two years when the 22nd Amendment was passed by overwhelming and bipartisan Congressional majorities, and approximately six years by the time it was ratified by the states and implemented, and (b) even if it had been directed at FDR while he were still in office, the amendment only applied to future presidents. It’s also worth noting that Republican majorities were only able to introduce this ultimately-successful amendment because they’d won sweeping landslide victories in the 1946 midterm elections, winning control of both legislative chambers. Also, at least two Republican presidents opposed the amendment, with Ronald Reagan going so far as to urge its repeal. Some dutiful media acolytes are performing their own version of Trumpist ‘translations’ in order to ostensibly demonstrate how AOC was actually kind of correct, if you ignore the actual substance of her core claim.

I don’t care whether or not the Democrats auditioned AOC for her abilities before a crowd, this woman and her faux pas are a gift of God to the Republicans.

#5: Ocasio-Cortez slammed as ‘financially illiterate’ at Sharpton event over Amazon, faces calls to be ousted from office

5-Ocasio-Cortez slammed as 'financially illiterate'

According to one 6 April 2019 Fox News article, even members of the socialist branch of the Democrat party have had enough of the idiocy that comes out of AOC.

Hours before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for an “agenda of reparations” at an Al Sharpton-sponsored event in New York on Friday, she was slammed as “financially illiterate” at the same conference for killing the Amazon deal with the state.

Ocasio-Cortez spoke to the crowd at the National Action Network, saying her Green New Deal will consider reparations to black Americans for slavery in addition to the radical overhaul of the economy in a bid to combat climate change.

But at the same conference, hours before Ocasio-Cortez’s speech, an investor ripped those who opposed the Amazon deal with the state that would have generated billions in tax revenue and 25,000 jobs.

“The people campaigning against the Amazon campus are financially illiterate,” said Tracy Maitland, president and chief investment officer of Advent Capital Management during a panel discussion the Black Economic Agenda, according to the New York Post.

It’s nice when we can count on these guys to turn on themselves.

#6: Ocasio-Cortez de-listed from board of Justice Democrats after controversy

6-Ocasio-Cortez de-listed

According to a 19 March 2019 Fox News article, it seems that a previous group has decided that AOC is a persona non grata.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., reportedly has been de-listed from the board of left-wing activist group Justice Democrats, following legal and ethical questions about her affiliation with the group.

The Daily Caller reported that Ocasio-Cortez, along with chief of staff and former campaign chair Saikat Chakrabarti, have been removed from the board of the political action committee after previously holding “legal control over the entity” in late 2017 and early 2018.

The Daily Caller had reported earlier this month on Ocasio-Cortez and Chakrabarti’s role with the PAC, noting that the congresswoman never disclosed to the Federal Election Commission that they “controlled the PAC while it was simultaneously supporting her primary campaign.” Former FEC officials said at the time this could represent violations of campaign finance law.

Well, at least someone is catching on.

#7: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Melts Down over Collapsing Poll Numbers

7-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Melts Down

Just when good news seems sparce, Breitbart News reports in a 17 March 2019 article how AOC didn’t receive the news of her falling popularity very well.

Earlier this week, Breitbart News reported on Ocasio-Crazy’s awful polling numbers as reported by Gallup. There is just no question that as her national profile has exploded, primarily through gushing coverage from the establishment media, it has backfired bigtime with the public.

The more people know about Ocasio-Crazy, even though the media’s Vaseline-smeared filter, the less they like her.

Although she is much better known than almost all of her counterparts in congress, better known than even Chief Justice John Roberts, a plurality of 41 percent view her unfavorably, a leap of 15 points since September.

Meanwhile, her favorable rating has only jumped seven points, from 24 to 31 percent.

Right now, Ocasio-Crazy is underwater with the public by double digits, by ten full points.

AOC, you made this bed. You get to lay in it.

#8: Ocasio-Cortez lashes out at unflattering likability poll

#9: Gallup – Negativity toward AOC piling up

OneNewsNow reports in a 17 March 2019 article that Gallup has confirmed that AOC’s falling numbers.

The latest Gallup poll reveals that the public’s opinion of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has plummeted, as the socialist Democrat’s ignorance on issues and shocking ultra-left stances continue to make more and more Americans fearful about the potential damage she can do in Washington.

Before the young “rock star” candidate rocked the world by defeating 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) at the ballot box last November, American negativity toward the self-proclaimed socialist was relatively low, but after her numerous controversial gaffs and oblivious comments exposing her inexperience and dangerous worldview, more Americans are becoming wary about the destructive path on which the left-leaning representative could lead America.

Since Americans were surveyed in early September, a shocking upward shift in their negative opinion toward AOC has been discovered, as Gallup’s new poll indicates that the millennial Democrat is scaring off many once-impressed left-leaning sympathizers.

Let’s just hope she keeps it up.

#10: Obama acolyte warns of the unpopularity of socialism

#10: Famously ruthless Dem warns about going Red

8-rahm-emanuel-upset-AP-640x480

In a 15 March 2019 OneNewsNow article, news of the unpopularity of socialism comes to light (at least on other-than-main-stream press).

A prominent Democrat is warning his party that Donald Trump will exploit their far-left ideas in 2020, and a political analyst says it’s good advice that won’t be heeded.

“Rahm Emanuel warns Democrats in 2020 not to play to ‘socialist’ type,” a USA Today headline states to begin a March 21 story.

Emanuel, the outgoing Chicago mayor, wrote an op-ed for The Atlantic warning fellow Democrats that they are serving up “slow pitches over the plate” to Trump, and he said the Republican president will peel away Democrats over proposals such as the Green New Deal and Medicare for All.

Emanuel, a Bill Clinton advisor who later served as Barack Obama’s chief of staff, is not appealing to Democrats out of niceness: he is known as a ruthless political player who once sent a mob-like dead fish to a pollster he didn’t like, and rattled off a list of political “enemies” as he stabbed a steak knife into a table.

Hush, Rahm.

#11: Rashida Tlaib’s ties to anti-Semitism run deeper than previously known

9-rashida-post-2

A 28 January 2019 Daily Caller article points to the anti-Semitic ties of Rashida Tlaib.

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s ties to anti-Semitism run deeper than previously known, a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation found.

Tlaib, part of a heralded freshman class of House Democrats, has already come under scrutiny over her positions on Israel and ties to fringe figures. But TheDCNF’s investigation uncovered additional ties to anti-Semitism.

Tlaib is a member of the Facebook group “Palestinian American Congress,” where members often demonize Jews. The group’s founder, Palestinian activist Maher Abdel-qader, was a key fundraiser for Tlaib and organized campaign events for her around the country.

In January 2018, Abdel-qader shared an anti-Semitic video that claimed Jews aren’t actually Jewish, and invented their historical claim to Israel and secretly control the media.

The video, which described Jews as “satanic,” also questioned whether 6 million Jews actually died in the Holocaust.

“Research the truth about the Holocaust, and you’ll definitely start to question what you thought you knew,” the video’s narrator says.

#12: Ilhan Omar ignites new anti-Semitism controversy with comments on AIPAC

10-ilhan-omar-tweet-explainer-1024x640

According to a 10 February 2019 article in Politico, Ilhan Omar decides to use anti-Semitic language to associate Jews and Republicans (when, oddly, many Jews are Democrats).

Freshman Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar ignited a new controversy on Sunday night when she suggested GOP support for Israel is driven by campaign donations from a prominent pro-Israel group.

Omar singled out AIPAC, one of the most influential lobbying groups in Washington, as the source of those donations.

Omar’s comments touched upon a long-running, and particularly ugly, thread of the anti-Semitic movement — that Jewish money fuels backing for Israel in the United States and elsewhere. A freshman Democrat, Max Rose of New York, said, “Congresswoman Omar’s statements are deeply hurtful to Jews, including myself.”

And the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee is a non-profit that doesn’t donate directly to candidates. AIPAC, however, does relentlessly push a pro-Israeli message on Capitol Hill and inside the executive branch, and its members donate to pro-Israel lawmakers and candidates while seeking to defeat those it considers a threat to U.S.-Israeli relations.

Although I don’t expect the press to report on her, I expect that this Representative will keep talking the way she always has spoken.

#13: She Said What!? Ilhan Omar Has Anti-Semitism Trouble Again

11-Omar

As recorded in a 4 March 2019 Townhall article, it seems that Ilhan Omar repeated her anti-Semitic ways.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) just can’t get past the anti-Semitism issue. She has peddled in such trash before, posting tweets that were very…problematic with regards to this issue. And no, they’re not old. They’re not from high school. They’re from last month. And it’s stuff that isn’t new; Jewish Minnesota leaders had to have a sit-down with her because of her remarks. It was when she tweeted “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel” back in 2012. Now, after her “all about the Benjamins” fiasco, which once again peddled old anti-Semitic stereotypes about people of the Jewish faith, money, and influence, these local leaders might not treat her with “kid gloves” anymore. The media certainly hasn’t let her off the hook, reporting on her serial stupidity on this front.

So, what’s her latest anti-Semitic trainwreck? Well, she sort of accused people who are pro-Israel of exhibiting dual loyalty. She made such remarks last Wednesday. Even liberal writers can see through her nonsense, noting that she’s peddling the Palestinian cause to smuggle in bigoted talking points (via NYT):

Representative Ilhan Omar, a freshman Democrat from Minnesota, came under scrutiny again this week because of her comments about Israel.

The remarks in question came during a discussion at a Washington bookstore on Wednesday about how critics have repeatedly labeled Ms. Omar’s criticism of Israel as anti-Semitic. She argued that the label is being used in bad faith to shut down debate.

The sentence that garnered the most attention was, “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is O.K. for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

Ms. Omar questioned why it was acceptable for her to speak critically about the political influence of the National Rifle Association, fossil fuel industries and “big pharma,” but not the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. (After she was widely criticized for a tweet about Aipac last month, she deleted it and apologized.)

In an article for New York magazine about the bookstore event, the writer Jonathan Chait accused Ms. Omar of using the cause of Palestinian rights “to smuggle in ugly stereotypes.”

He added that she was “invoking the hoary myth of dual loyalty, in which the Americanness of Jews is inherently suspect.”

Some conservative news outlets also posted articles critical of the comments. And Marshall Wittmann, a spokesman for Aipac, said in a statement that the accusation of “dual loyalty” was alarming.

“The charge of dual loyalty not only raises the ominous specter of classic anti-Semitism, but it is also deeply insulting to the millions upon millions of patriotic Americans, Jewish and non-Jewish, who stand by our democratic ally, Israel,” Mr. Wittmann said.
