Thirteen stories on Bloomberg’s failures, problems, insults, and attempts at redemption


Bloomberg’s failures

  1. Bloomberg’s gun ban rejected in Virginia with Democratic help

The Washington Examiner reported in a 17 February 2020 article that the gun grab in Virginia funded by Michael Bloomberg went down in flames.

Despite spending millions to turn Virginia’s legislature blue and a last-minute visit to Richmond, Democrats in the Senate turned back presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg’s top goal in the state of banning “assault weapons.”

In a lopsided 10-5 vote, the state Senate Judiciary Committee killed any advancement this year, pushing the legislation off for a year.

Thank God and some sensible Democrats for rejecting this idiocy

While I have a hard time calling some Democrats sensible, I can reasonably affix that label to a few. Thank heavens that those Democrats stopped this incursion into our Second Amendment rights.

  1. Bloomberg’s ban on super-sized colas was both unpopular and unconstitutional

A 30 July 2013 article at Reuters explained first why the measure had been found unconstitutional.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s controversial plan to keep large sugary drinks out of restaurants and other eateries was rejected by a state appeals court on Tuesday, which said he had overstepped his authority in trying to impose the ban.

The law, which would have prohibited those businesses from selling sodas and other sugary beverages larger than 16 ounces (473 ml), “violated the state principle of separation of powers,” the First Department of the state Supreme Court’s Appellate Division said.

The decision, upholding a lower court ruling in March that struck down the law, dealt a blow to Bloomberg’s attempt to advance the pioneering regulation as a way to combat obesity. Beverage makers and business groups, however, challenged it in court, arguing that the mayoral-appointed health board had gone too far when it approved the law.

A unanimous four-judge panel at the appeals court agreed, finding that the board had stepped beyond its power to regulate public health and usurped the policy-making role of the legislature.

In particular, the court focused on the law’s loopholes, which exempted businesses not under the auspices of the city’s health department and left certain drinks, such as milk-based beverages, unaffected.

As a result, grocery and convenience stores – such as 7 Eleven and its 64-ounce Big Gulp – were protected from the ban’s reach, even as restaurants, sandwich shops and movie theaters were not. Meanwhile, milkshakes and high-calorie coffee drinks like Starbucks’ Frappucinos would have remained unfettered.

My opposition to Bloomberg’s soda ban stands on the same reasons that I oppose other Bloomberg initiatives

We do not need a nanny state. It cannot be there to protect us when we need it (for, as you know, “when seconds count, the police are minutes away.”)

Bloomberg’s problems

  1. Bloomberg’s billions a big problem

OneNewsNow reports in a 17 February 2020 article that one of Bloomberg’s biggest problems is wealth that he has amassed.

A conservative activist says New York’s former mayor will have to overcome several obstacles if he hopes to “buy” the U.S. presidency.

Much has been made about Michael Bloomberg’s obscenely deep pockets and the fact that he could spend a billion dollars of his own money to blanket the country with campaign ads, posing a serious challenge to President Trump’s re-election. But Bloomberg could also face a serious blowback from black voters following the release of a 2015 speech in which he said 95 percent of all crime is committed in minority neighborhoods.

“The tapes that came out recently showing certainly what appeared to be his disdain for the people that live in minority communities is the kind of thing that will hurt him deeply with perhaps the most important voting bloc in Democrat Party primaries,” comments Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families.

And Bauer says Bloomberg has something else to deal with.

“He is the ultimate capitalist success story — a self-made billionaire running in a political party that is increasingly socialist in its orientation,” the conservative activist notes.

And as Bauer points out, some polling data shows nearly 60 percent of Democrats could never vote for a billionaire to be their party’s nominee.

For a party like Democrats, having billions is a liability.

For both parties, having earned multiple millions while in office should be a liability for Bernie, Warren, and others.

  1. Bloomberg voices his views on health care for older Americans

Forbes repeats Bloomberg’s words regarding health care for older Americans.

If Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg was 95 years old and had prostate cancer, he could afford advanced and extreme medical care to improve and extend his life.

But what about a 95-year-old non-billionaire with prostate cancer who requires medical treatment using taxpayer dollars? In 2011, Bloomberg made the following statement: “If you show up with prostate cancer and you’re 95, we should say ‘go and enjoy, have a nice day, live a long life.’ There’s no cure and we can’t do anything. If you’re a young person, we should do something about it,” said Bloomberg, a former New York City mayor.

Bloomberg warned that society was not yet willing to make hard choices with respect to treating older Americans and this is “going to bankrupt us.”

The video reportedly was released by Daily Caller, a hyper partisan conservative website.

Bloomberg’s 2011 statement surfaced as he released a proposed health care plan to improve retirees’ lives, from giving low-income workers access to government-provided retirement savings plans to bolstering Social Security. Bloomberg said he would limit out-of-pocket drug costs and provide federal coverage for long-term care costs.
Do Bloomberg’s statements constitute age discrimination? Yes. Without a doubt.
Dr. Robert N. Butler, M.D., (1927-2010), who coined the term “ageism” in 1968, said generations throughout history have justified the futility of granting the aged access to health care due to unfounded ageist beliefs. Butler defined ageism is ‘a process of systematic stereotyping, prejudicial attitudes and direct or indirect discrimination against people because they are old.”

In his book, Age-ism: Another Form of Bigotry, Butler writes: “Age-ism reflects a deep seated uneasiness on the part of the young and middle-aged – a personal revulsion to and distaste for growing old, disease, disability; and fear of powerlessness, ‘uselessness,’ and death.”
Scapegoating Older Americans
Moreover, Bloomberg’s 2011 ramblings while sitting Shiva with a Jewish family also seem profoundly misguided. There are many other criteria that seem just as likely to bankrupt the United States.

The U.S. health care system is notoriously inefficient and outrageously expensive. It costs four times more to run the U.S. health care system than Canada’s single-payer system. Why is America saddled with a failed system? The U.S. Congress has failed to act in the face of intense lobbying by insurers and pharmaceutical companies.

And why is aging singled out as opposed to other conditions, such as obesity? Some 40 percent of American adults aged 20 and over are obese, a condition that can lead to coronary heart disease and stroke.

The Centers for Disease Control states that coronary heart disease and stroke cost the U.S. health care system $199 billion per year and cause $131 billion in lost productivity on the job.

Why doesn’t Congress address America’s “new national epidemic” and enact sound policy changes, such as limiting unhealthy foods at schools and restoring “gym ” for all students. Congress could tax products that contribute to obesity or require informative labeling of food products  Many blame lobbying by the mammoth food production and retail industries for Congressional inaction.

Democrats need to stop fixing what works

Consider this: when Bernie had a heart attack, he did not go to Canada, Great Britain, or Venezuela for treatment. Although he has been hypocritically hopping in his personal jet while lecturing us on “climate change,” he did not hop down to his much-praised comrades in Cuba for treatment. Instead, he went to an American hospital.

So, if the Democrats want to fix anything, they need to open up markets and reward those of us who come together in medical collectives.

  1. Bloomberg insults Christians and Jews

A 15 February 2020 article in Vanity Fair, we find a new set of insults. Among these insults is one that should offend both Jews and Christians (refer to the bold, italicized sentence below).

Friday was Michael Bloomberg’s 78th birthday and the Washington Post gave a belated gift Saturday morning, a blast from the former New York City mayor’s past. “Aw, you shouldn’t have,” he must have said, seeing the news.

The paper has reprinted, in full, The Portable Bloomberg: The Wit and Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg, a gag birthday gift published by former Bloomberg L.P. chief marketing officer Elisabeth DeMarse 30 years ago. “Yes, these are all actual quotes,” it says in the introduction, adding “no, nothing has been embellished or exaggerated. And yes, some things were too outrageous to include.”

The Wit and Wisdom, an ersatz monograph on corporate culture, may plunge the 2020 political discourse into a new period. One can easily foresee people arguing if describing the Bloomberg Terminal device as something that “[can] do everything, include give you a blowjob. I guess that puts a lot of you girls out of business,” is as bad as “grab ‘em by the pussy.”

The pocket-sized collection has long been the stuff of lore. ABC News had a piece on it in December and Bloomberg himself distanced himself from the collection in 2001 during his first mayoral campaign. But today’s reproduction, as Bloomberg readies himself, at long last, to compete in Democratic primaries, is the first time citizens considering him for national office can scroll through his alleged recorded office musings.

Bloomberg’s campaign spokesman Stu Loeser, upon learning of the book’s imminent reproduction, said that the candidate “simply did not say the things somebody wrote in this gag gift, which has been circulating for 30 years and has been quoted in every previous election Mike has been in.” He did add that “Mike openly admits that his words have not always aligned with his values and the way he has led his life and some of what he has said is disrespectful and wrong.”

Not all of the 121 quotes, divided into sections like “On Computers” or “On Customer Service” will raise eyebrows. Some quotes are simply business-speak, the type of thing you half-hear while zoning out during a meeting. For example:

Everyone I know who is successful loves what they do. The question is: are they successful because they love what they do, or do they love what they do because they are successful? I don’t know. I suspect it’s a combination of both.

Other quotes, while admittedly coarse, are simply benign jokes, like this listed in the “On Profanity” section:

When the Wall Street Journal article came out saying I was profane, my dear old mother called me to ask me if it was true. ‘Ma,’ I said, ‘Fuck ‘em!’

Then there’s typical Manhattanite braggadocio, which might get a laugh at work, but probably isn’t something you want spreading around if you are, you know, running for President of the United States of America. Such as:

You know, there’s a Federal Law that prohibits the serving of good food west of 12th Avenue — look it up.

Or:

I make it a rule never to go to Queens — and since that eliminates both airports I don’t travel a great deal.

And then there’s the sexism and casual bigotry:

If women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they’d go to the library instead of Bloomingdale’s.

The Royal Family — what a bunch of misfits — a gay, an architect, that horsey faced lesbian, and a kid who gave up Koo Stark for some fat broad.

The three biggest lies are: the check’s in the mail, I’ll respect you in the morning, and I’m glad I’m Jewish.

If Jesus was a Jew, why does he have a Puerto Rican first name?

Whenever my wife catches me eyeing some broad, she’s very careful to turn to me and say “That’s the most expensive piece of ass in the world!”

The scanned PDF also includes some cartoons.

In the middle of all this, however, one can find seeds of progressivism if you look really, really hard. One quote shows a surprising lack of fiery hatred concerning the topic of taxes, at least coming from a business tycoon whose fortune stemmed from letting Wall Street killers know about deals a fraction of a second ahead of the poor schmucks who couldn’t afford his proprietary information system.

Inform yourself by downloading and reading the PDF linked above. This guy said many more offensive things than Trump has been accused of saying. So, when the Democrats support any of these clowns, you know that it is not on principle.

  1. A former Clinton staffer questions Bloomberg’s racist comments (including “stop and frisk”)

Townhall reports that one Clinton staffer suggests that Bloomberg’s “stop and frisk” comments will need to be explained.

Rumors are swirling that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is contemplating adding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to his ticket. According to one of Clinton’s ex-staffers, Zerlina Maxwell, the move is highly unlikely. But, regardless of whether or not Clinton is on Bloomberg’s ticket, the MSNBC analyst believes people need to dig deep into the billionaire’s past.

“One of the things that’s been annoying me about this particular election cycle is when the men who are running for president speculate about women or women of color they’re going to put on the bottom of their ticket as their number two in order to help their chances. Why can’t we just talk about the women themselves?” Maxwell asked.

She reminded people that the former secretary of state has repeatedly said she would not run for president again.

“I’m highly skeptical of this particular report and I think, in some ways, it’s to send a signal to the folks who still love Hillary Clinton, that they should look at Michael Bloomberg,” the former staffer explained. “But they should look at Bloomberg on his own record. He has plenty of issues that he needs to address. He has not been in a debate. He has not done a national interview on television, so, right now, he’s blanketing the airwaves with glossy advertisements. And if millions of dollars in advertisements didn’t work to sell products, even defective ones, they wouldn’t spend so much on advertising.”

Bloomberg has taken hits over redlining and stop and frisk, MSNBC’s Alex Witt said. Despite that, three members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) have endorsed the former New York City major.

Maxwell said voters shouldn’t overlook Bloomberg’s past policy positions simply because they want to beat President Donald Trump come November.

“I don’t think that by accepting a deeply-flawed candidate, particularly one who hasn’t debated any of the other candidates. I think black and brown people are jumping ahead before we’ve even had an opportunity to weigh in at the ballot box,” she said. “It’s very important to get endorsements from the [CBC members].”

As the former Clinton staffer said, a candidate can receive CBC endorsements but that doesn’t necessarily translate to black voters. In 2016, Clinton received substantial CBC endorsements but black voter turnout was low.

“His record is one that should be examined by black and brown communities because it’s nice to put money behind good causes and philanthropy, but if you’re doing that at the same time that you’re throwing black children up against the wall and defending it up until weeks before announcing your run, then people have a right to be skeptical of whether or not you really care about these communities,” Maxwell explained.

  1. Bloomberg’s sexist remarks

We have to go across the pond to The Guardian‘s 15 February 2020 article to read about Michael Bloomberg’s sexist remarks.

The presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has insisted he is a “champion for women in the workplace”, after the republication of a 30-year-old booklet purporting to contain his “Wit and Wisdom” cast an uncomfortable spotlight on the billionaire former New York mayor.

The Washington Post made the 1990 booklet available online as it published an investigation of how Bloomberg has “for years battled women’s allegations of profane, sexist comments”. The booklet was presented as a gift to Bloomberg on his 48th birthday party and contains a catalogue of sexist remarks attributed to the billionaire during his time at the company he founded.

The renewed attention on Bloomberg – who has for years been the subject of allegations that his company fostered a hostile and sexist environment towards women – comes as he has surged in the race for the Democratic nomination to face Donald Trump in November.

With the leftwinger Bernie Sanders climbing in national polls and former vice-president Joe Biden falling away, Bloomberg’s self-financed candidacy has begun to attract support from moderates seeking what they believe will be an electable alternative to Donald Trump.

On Saturday the rightwing Drudge Report website caused a stir when it said “sources close to the Bloomberg campaign” said he was considering Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate beaten by Trump in 2016, as his running mate this year.

But with such increasing prominence, fuelled in part by a massive TV and Facebook advertising effort, has come increasing scrutiny of the former Republican’s record in office and his comments and views.

In one comment printed in the 1990 booklet, the businessman turned politician is said to have said of Britain’s royal family: “What a bunch of misfits – a gay, an architect, that horsey faced lesbian, and a kid who gave up Koo Stark for some fat broad.”

Of the Bloomberg Terminal, the computer system on which a fortune estimated at $60bn was built, Bloomberg is quoted as saying: “It will do everything, including give you a blowjob. I guess that puts a lot of you girls out of business.”

He is also quoted as comparing “a good salesperson” to “the guy who goes into a bar, and walks up to every gorgeous girl there, and says, ‘Do you want to fuck?’ He gets turned down a lot – but he gets fucked a lot, too!”

  1. Bloomberg implied farming doesn’t take intelligence in 2016 comments

Fox News reports in a 17 February 2020 article how Michael Bloomberg denegrated farmers in 2016.

Presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg appeared to belittle both farmers and factory workers in 2016 comments made at a university forum, continuing a trend of old remarks resurfacing to plague the billionaire’s bid for the Democratic nomination.

Joining the Distinguished Speakers Series at the University of Oxford Saïd Business School, Bloomberg was responding to a question about whether it is possible to unite people in middle America and the coasts. One of the issues standing in the way of that, Bloomberg said, was the inability of blue-collar workers to adapt to the information economy even if they have their education subsidized.

“The agrarian society lasted 3,000 years and we could teach processes. I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer,” Bloomberg said. “It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that. Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow and you can have a job. And we created a lot of jobs. At one point, 98 percent of the world worked in agriculture, now it’s 2 percent in the United States.”

Bloomberg continued: “Now comes the information economy and the information economy is fundamentally different because it’s built around replacing people with technology and the skill sets that you have to learn are how to think and analyze, and that is a whole degree level different. You have to have a different skill set, you have to have a lot more gray matter. It’s not clear the teachers can teach or the students can learn, and so the challenge of society of finding jobs for these people, who we can take care of giving them a roof over their head and a meal in their stomach and a cell phone and a car and that sort of thing. But the thing that is the most important, that will stop them from setting up a guillotine someday, is the dignity of a job”

During my stint while earning a Bachelor of Arts at Texas A&M, I was introduced to many agricultural scientists

BloombergFarmerI concentrated on technical subjects during that time and took a number of classes in programming. However, that did not dim my respect for the work that students in the agricultural sciences went through. Obviously, Mr. Bloomberg has a bit of a vaunted view of himself regarding a field he seems to have invested little time in learning.

Bloomberg’s attempts at trying to redeem himself

  1. Bloomberg delivers his best attack line against Bernie Sanders … and it was pretty brutal

Townhall comments on the Bloomberg attacks against Bernie during the Nevada debates.

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg jumped into the 2020 ring. Or was it a shark tank? He secured a spot on the debate stage for the Nevada debate—and everyone was gunning for him. Mike clogs the spot. He threatens Amy Klobuchar and former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. He has to be destroyed. He pulls from bases of support that makes everyone’s path to the nomination no matter how small, even smaller. They had to deliver a thousand blows to him. And he was beaten pretty badly by everyone. From stop-and-frisk to allegations of sexually suggestive remarks, Bloomberg came off as cold, calculating, and just unlikeable. He was horrific on the non-disclosure agreement issues that were brought up. It was not good. CNN’s Van Jones called his performance a disaster, but he did have one good attack line against Sanders—and it was a brutal one.

BernieScreamsThe Vermont democratic socialist went on his usual line about how socialism is awesome. He railed against what he sees as socialism for the rich, calling out Donald Trump for getting hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks for his business ventures. Sanders also railed against the welfare state expenditures for Walmart’s workers because the Walton family pays what the Left sees as “starvation wages.”

“I believe in a democratic socialism for working people, not billionaires. Health care for all, educational opportunity for all,” said Sanders as he finally ended his stump speech by declaring he will create a government that works for everyone.

And then Bloomberg torpedoed it in a couple of sentences.

“What a wonderful country we have. The best-known socialist in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What did I miss here?” he replied.

  1. Michael Bloomberg considering Hillary Clinton as running mate

Breitbart reports that Michael Bloomberg has suggested Hillary Clinton as a running mate.

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg is considering choosing failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as a running mate, according to the Drudge Report on Saturday.

Matt Drudge launched a siren banner on the front page of the Drudge Report to highlight the news, citing sources close to the Bloomberg campaign.

According to those sources, internal campaign polling found that the Bloomberg/Clinton ticket would be a formidable force to tackle Trump in the general election.

While Bloomberg may be strategizing, this may be a wrong move

If Bloomberg were to win the presidency with her at his side, it might be the shortest presidency on record.

  1. Candidate Bloomberg Adds Memes to Campaign Arsenal

Breitbart also reports that Bloomberg has been buying memes to build his brand on social media.

Michael Bloomberg’s campaign said Thursday it has invested in sponsored Instagram meme content in a new illustration of his record spending aimed at securing the Democratic presidential nomination.

As he vies to be the candidate to take on President Donald Trump, the former New York mayor is also challenging the president on one of his preferred battlefields — the world of social media, where the comic images known as memes flourish.

“Mike Bloomberg 2020 has teamed up with social creators to collaborate with the campaign, including the meme world,” campaign spokeswoman Sabrina Singh said in an email to AFP.

“While a meme strategy may be new to presidential politics, we’re betting it will be an effective component to reach people where they are and compete with President Trump’s powerful digital operation,” Singh added.

Trump’s surprise election win in 2016 was attributed in part to his use of social media, which was much more aggressive than his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

Among the Instagram content creators recruited by Bloomberg are fuckjerry, grapejuiceboys and tank.sinatra, each of which has millions of followers.

On Wednesday they published screen shots of humorous (but fake) private messages with Bloomberg on Instagram — and which they said were sponsored by him.

In one of them, the 77-year-old candidate says that his granddaughter showed him the account.

In one post, Bloomberg appears to ask the account to post a meme to let everyone know he is “the cool candidate” — along with a picture of him in oversized shorts, a Polo-style shirt and a rust-colored vest.

In the meme, the candidate agrees to pay “a billion dollars” for the post.

This is another sad instance of buying the presidency

Original articles said that Bloomberg was offering $150 per endorsement. Later scuttlebutt says that people have been earning thousands.

  1. Bloomberg Hits Sanders: ‘Outrageous’ to Call Soleimani’s Death an ‘Assassination’

If I am going to blog on all the things I disapprove of among Bloomberg’s acts, I should also refer to Breitbart‘s 6 January 2020 article where Bloomberg pointed out the outrageousness of Bernie’s statement on the killing of Soleimani.

Presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg (D) said it is “outrageous” to describe the death of Iran’s top terror chief as an “assassination” — a description used by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Bloomberg last week took issue with Sanders describing the elimination of Iran’s top general, Qasem Soleimani, an “assassination,” telling reporters that it is an “outrageous thing to say.”

“Nobody that I know of would think that we did something wrong in getting the general,” the billionaire said:

His remarks followed the Sanders campaign’s statement, describing the terrorist’s death as an “assassination”:

Sanders said in a video statement that he would “do everything that [he] can to prevent a war with Iran” and added that he apologizes to “no one” for his position:

Bloomberg, however, took a more measured approach, stating that Soleimani had the “blood of Americans on his hands.” While he took shots at Trump in his statement and questioned his judgment, he did not outright condemn the action:

Nine stories on the gun grab in Virginia


  1. A great round-up of the events by Sfcmac

Please go to Sfcmac, The Foxhole to see a great summary of this situation.

  1. Virginia House advances gun control measures

Fox Business reported in a 28 January 2020 article on the new gun control measures in Virginia.

gunprotest_NorthamDemocrats in the Virginia House are advancing a package of gun-control measures less than a week after tens of thousands of pro-gun advocates from around the country rallied at the state Capitol.

But the advancing bills don’t yet include a proposed assault weapon ban, a top priority for Gov. Ralph Northam and one that’s drawn fierce resistance from gun-rights advocates.

A Democratic-led House committee voted Friday for several pieces of gun legislation that a Republican majority has blocked for years. Those bills include limiting handgun purchases to once a month; universal background checks on gun purchases; allowing localities to ban guns in public buildings, parks and other areas; and a red flag bill that would allow authorities to temporarily take guns away from anyone deemed to be dangerous to themselves or others.

“Our action today is for the families who have lost loved ones as a result of gun violence,” House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn said.

The measures will go to the full House for a vote, likely next week, before going to the Senate, which has already passed some gun-control bills of its own.

The House committee passed seven out of eight gun bills that Northam has said were his priority. But it did not take up an assault weapon ban, which some Democrats said they don’t think can pass this year. The Senate has already killed off its version of the bill and some moderate Democratic senators said they won’t support the legislation, which would outlaw the popular AR-15-style rifles.

In other news, the main stream media would rather present stories on Ellen’s hangnail

Rather than faithfully and evenhandedly addressing the subjects of violence and self-protection in our society, the main stream media outlets seem to go instinctively to the anti-gun position. Even when a woman defends herself from rape or murder, questions are often raised that seem to vilify the person who protected themselves.

This seems odd, since the press also seems uniformly to support the Democrat line on abortion up to and just beyond birth.

So, if these reporters can so vociferously support the right of life for felons and criminals (at the seeming cost of law-abiding citizens), why can’t they open a full debate on the subject?

  1. President Trump: Virginia Proves Again Democrats ‘Will Take Your Guns’

Breitbart reports in a 17 January 2020 article how President Trump reiterated his previous warning that Democrats would be coming after our guns.

On January 17, 2020, President Donald Trump pointed to the gun control situation in Virginia, noting that it proves once more the Democrats “will take your guns” if voted into office.

He made this point amid the all-out war on guns by Gov. Ralph Northam (D) and the newly elected Democrat majority in the state legislature.

Virginia Democrats started this week intent on passing legislation allowing a total ban on the ownership of AR-15s and similar guns, but they dropped the confiscatory bill after thousands of NRA members flooded the hallways outside state Senate offices.

Yet the Democrats are still pushing an “assault weapons” ban that would only allow AR-15 owners to keep their rifles if they agree to obtain a license from the state police. Democrats are being open about their intention to use the licensing process to form a database listing information of AR-15 owners.

They are also pursuing a ban on “high-capacity” magazines, a ban on suppressors and certain aftermarket triggers, and other gun controls.

Why should we doubt warnings about Democrats?

There is obviously no reason to doubt any warning about Democrats. From the warning that they will damage our multiple rights in court (from the lawyer-client confidentiality relationship to our right to a swift trial to our right to face our accuser and many other rights), we have had our rights damaged by socialist Democrats.

Amid all of this over-reaching, they want to protect us from guns. Never mind that “when seconds count, the police are minutes away.”

  1. Our Constitution under attack by unaccountable “journalists”

Reuters tries to paint those interested in keeping their self-defense rights as “white supremacists” in an 18 January 2020 article.

Virginia’s House Republican leader said on Saturday that white supremacists and any other groups trying to spread “hate, violence, or civil unrest” were not welcome at a pro-gun rally in the state’s capital on Monday, which is expected to draw thousands.

The House Republican leader’s statement came a day after the state’s top court upheld a ban by the governor on weapons in the area around the Capitol in Richmond where the rally is set to take place by demonstrators protesting against Democrats’ push to stiffen the state’s gun laws.

“Any group that comes to Richmond to spread white supremacist garbage, or any other form of hate, violence, or civil unrest isn’t welcome here,” House Republican leader Todd Gilbert said in a statement. “While we and our Democratic colleagues may have differences, we are all Virginians and we will stand united in opposition to any threats of violence or civil unrest from any quarter.”

Militias, neo-Nazis and other groups have vowed to attend the rally. Authorities say they are expecting several thousand people and are trying to keep the event from becoming violent.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam on Wednesday temporarily banned all weapons from the area around the Capitol ahead of the demonstration to avoid a repeat of violence that erupted at a 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, when a march by white nationalists led to the death of a counter-protester.

In a statement late Friday, the Virginia Citizens Defense League, a pro-gun rights group organizing the rally, urged 10,000 people to go to the Capitol grounds unarmed on Monday in accordance with the governor’s ban.

The emailed statement also called on tens of thousands more to stand with their weapons immediately outside the designated rally grounds to show support for Americans’ right to bear arms under the U.S. Constitution.

“For every one gun owner on the Capitol grounds, we need another two to five people outside,” the organizers wrote. “Those doing so can be legally armed.”

Rather than limiting guns, we need to each renew our commitment to reporting our own views

We need to become our own First Amendment protection to the Second Amendment. We need to step around CNN, the New York Times, and other suspect outlets (both left and right).

Of course, that does not mean that we cannot use the New York Times or Alex Jones as a source — but, when we do it, it must be to prove a point. We may cite Alex Jones to prove that this loony site can actually make a cogent argument occasionally. Or we may cite the New York Times to prove that they often prove the arguments of the right while making arguments for the left.

  1. Watch – 2A Activist: Media Smearing Virginia Protesters as ‘Nothing but White Rednecks’

Breitbart reports in a 20 January 2020 article on the words of Black Americans who support their own rights of self defense.

A black Second Amendment supporter at the January 20, 2020, rally pulled back the covers on the establishment media’s attempts to paint pro-gun Virginians as “nothing but white rednecks.”

Listen as the pro-Second Amendment American says, “I do not in any way, shape, or form support Governor Northam’s and the Democrat’s gun control.”

“What I also don’t support is the fact that every news piece you’ve seen on this, this weekend, they’ve always brought up the issue of race, as though it’s nothing but white rednecks and hillbillies out here who care for the Second  Amendment,” he continued. “When Actually, black Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Americans in general, care about the Second Amendment.”

Prior to Monday’s rally, Breitbart News reported that NBC News reporter Ben Collins previewed Virginia’s Second Amendment event by calling it a “white nationalist rally.” Michael Bloomberg-funded Moms Demand Action and the Washington Post took similar approaches, linking support for the event and/or Second Amendment Sanctuaries to extremism.

Gov. Ralph Northam (D) launched a war on guns just days after the Democrats won control of the Virginia legislature. He and Democrat lawmakers are now pushing licensing requirements for AR-15 owners, a gun registry for those owners, criminizalation of private gun sales via universal background checks, a ban on “high capacity” magazines, and a ban on suppressors and certain aftermarket triggers, among other controls.

  1. Milwaukee Seeking $50 Million To Pay for DNC Security (when they only need “Gun Free Zone” signs)

Urban Milwaukee reported in a 16 January 2020 article that the Milwaukee city council has sought $50 million to pay for security for the DNC convention.

The boundaries of the security perimeter are still a secret, but it’s now public how much the city will seek to cover the cost of police and fire personnel securing the Democratic National Convention.

MilwaukeeThe City of Milwaukee will apply today for a $50 million federal grant to reimburse security costs related to the convention. A total of 4,000 officers will work 12-hour shifts to secure the estimated 50,000 event attendees.

“I feel that it is important to share this info with the public to be as transparent as possible,” said Mayor Tom Barrett at a Wednesday afternoon press conference announcing the grant submission.

The bulk of those funds will go to cover the cost of hiring thousands of out-of-town officers to secure the convention. The city is expected to allocate 1,200 officers to downtown Milwaukee during the July convention, with an additional 2,800 officers coming from 147 agencies, according to a Milwaukee Police Department report. In addition to the Milwaukee Fire Department, 12 fire departments will also provide staffing for the convention.

“Yesterday was a good snippet of what will happen this summer,” said Police Chief Alfonso Morales of President Donald Trump‘s rally in downtown Milwaukee and the related logistical issues. He praised the media for spreading information related to road closures and other transportation issues. “We briefed you, you briefed the public, things went smoothly,” concluded the Chief.

“Of course one of the things we want to avoid is spending the money and not being reimbursed,” said Barrett. The Mayor said in discussions with officials at past convention host cities, including Cleveland, Philadelphia and Charlotte, the city has learned that “documentation is key.” Barrett has pledged that no city tax dollars would be used to host the convention. “It can’t be somebody’s dream list of what they want to have,” said the Mayor of what the money would be spent on.

Since the Democrats want to remove guns from the people, they should lead by example by posting “Gun Free Zone” signs instead of having armed guards

They need to prove the convictions of their hearts by buying hundreds of signs and posting them all around Milwaukee. That should protect them.

  1. The main stream media lied about the Virginia rally

Wayne Dupree Weighs In On Media’s Dangerous Coverage Of Virginia 2A Rally

The Daily Caller allows Wayne Dupree to give an assessment of the Virginia gun rally.

Political commentator Wayne Dupree weighed in on the media’s coverage of the massive pro-gun rally Monday in Richmond, Virginia.

Dupree slammed NBC reporter Ben Collins for calling the event a “white supremacist rally” on Twitter, a statement Collins later deleted. Dupree told the Daily Caller’s Anders Hagstrom he believed Democrats had come unhinged since losing the 2016 election to President Donald Trump, and that has manifested in Democrats panning moderate conservative gun-rights advocates and in the ongoing attempt to impeach and remove Trump.

Police estimates say roughly 22,000 people attended Monday’s gun rights rally in Virginia, with zero reported incidents of violence. Prior to the event, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam suggested extremist groups were planning to incite violence at the event and declared a state of emergency.

As a result, rally-goers were banned from carrying firearms on capital grounds. Roughly 6,000 attendees went through airport-style security to enter the fenced-in capital, with roughly 16,000 remaining outside, many of them heavily armed.

Leftists’ double standard on violence


Sanders Staffer “There are things more important than the rule of law in the USA”

Kyle JurekIn the following undercover video by Project Veritas, the Iowa field organizer for the Bernie Sanders campaign, Kyle Jurek, had a number of things to say about Elizabeth Warren, her staff workers, Democrats (if Sanders is not nominated), and many other groups.

JurekSo many people have suicided themselves that have been related to the Clintons. It’s f**king insane.

Speaker Testimony
Jurek The only thing that facists understand is violence. So, the only way you can confront them is with violence.
James O’Keefe Meet Kyle Jurek, a field organizer in Iowa for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Jurek says cities are going to burn if Trump gets re-elected. These are worrisome words from someone who works for a man running to be President of the United States.
O’Keefe Now, evidence shows Kyle Jurek has been in politics since 2018 when, according to these FEC records, Jurek was paid $500 while working for the Democratic Senate campaign committee. The FEC records also show he has worked for the Sanders campaign for over six months. And, so far, Jurek has earned nearly $11,000.
Jurek Yeah they seem emboldened. They (Trump supporters) have been emboldened by Trump and all that rhetoric and shit. But they are scared f**king senseless of anti-fascists. Like even like even like the ones that are kind of like the right-wing people.
Jurek The only thing that works. The only thing that fascists understand is violence. So, the only way you can confront them is with violence.
Veritas journalist So, if Trump gets re-elected, what …
Jurek F**king cities burn.
Veritas journalist Do what you gotta do.
Jurek Yeah. I mean, we don’t have a lot of time left, we have to save f**king human civilization. And obviously Trump doesn’t give two f**ks about making sure the world doesn’t burn.
Jurek If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination or it goes to a second round at the DNC Convention, f**king Milwaukee will burn. It’ll start in Milwaukee and then, when they f**king, and when the police push back on that, other cities will just f**king (makes an explosion sound).
Jurek Be ready to be in Milwaukee for the DNC Convention. That’s all I’m gonna say. We’re going to make 1978 (editor’s note: actually 1968) look like a f**king Girl Scout f**king cookout.
Veritas journalist What does that mean?
Jurek Remember what happened when McGovern got f**ked in Chicago in 1978 (editor’s note: it was Humphrey in 1968)? Riots. F**king people getting beaten by the cops. The cops are gonna be the ones that are getting f**king beaten in Milwaukee. They’re gonna call up the national guard for that s**t. I promise you that.
O’Keefe Jurek is clearly very radical, but also very confused about his political history. He talks about riots in Chicago in 1978 when George McGovern was running for president. In fact, the riots were in 1968 when Hubert Humphrey was the Democratic nominee. McGovern ran for president in 1972 and there were no riots that year.
Jurek If Bernie doesn’t … if they f**king take Bernie from us, then we have nothing else to lose.
Jurek Whatever it takes. And that’s why they’re like “oh, anti-fascists are violent.” It’s because we’re willing to go above and beyond what the law says is acceptable, like free speech, yeah, they try to be like “oh, you’re against free speech.” And, no we’re not against free speech. We’re against f**king hate speech, and if your free speech is something that these people shouldn’t exist, then I don’t give a f**k if it’s free speech or not, you don’t need, like free speech has repercussions.
Jurek Yeah, there are consequences to your f**king speech, right? If your speeck is calling for the elimination of people based on race or gender, or religious like for whatever reason, things that people can’t change, then you should expect a f**king violent reaction. And you deserve a violent reaction. Because that’s just not an acceptable thing. It’s not acceptable.
Veritas journalist Kill the Clintons?
Jurek Maybe. Revolution. Kill the Clintons? Let me tell you something about this revolution. We don’t gotta kill the Clintons. We’ll make them kill themselves.
Veritas journalist How’s that?
Jurek Reign of terror.
O’Keefe It’s clear that in a revolution, Democratic candidates like Tom Styer and Mike Bloomberg wouldn’t be safe. And, in his world, networks like MSNBC or even the moderate liberals wouldn’t be immune.
Veritas journalist Thrown down?
Jurek I’m ready to throw down now. I don’t want to wait and have to wait for f**king DNC.
Veritas journalist Yeah, but with who, who you going to throw down with?
Jurek The billionaire class. The f**king media, pundits. Walk into that MSNBC studios, drag those motherf**kers out by their hair and light them on fire in the streets.
Veritas journalist Guys like that (liberal), what are we gonna do with them?
Jurek Gulag. Liberals get the f**king wall first.
Veritas journalist What are we gonna do with those people that resist the change? Because that’s the big deal.
Jurek Well, I’ll tell you what, in Cuba, what did they do to reactionaries?
Veritas journalist They shot them on the beach.
Jurek (Nodding head and smiling broadly) Do you want to fight against the revolution? You’re gonna die for it, motherf**ker.
O’Keefe Jurek also has some pretty harsh words for Sander’s rival on the left, Elizabeth Warren. He is particularly critical of her staffers in Iowa.
Jurek They were like sending canvasers to our events. Like we had that climate summit, but they couldn’t find it for AOC. F**king Warren campaign people show up. One table in the event. Wanted to set up a table for Warren. And we’re like, “get the f**k outta here.” This isn’t a Warren event. You’re not coming in here and scooping up people. No.
Veritas journalist It is a competition, you know.
Jurek You team guys like to say Warrens just like Bernie, but a woman, but (guess what) we’re not on the same team.
Jurek Bernie’s a bad judge of character. Weaver, who is like, one of his campaign like senior advisors. … Bernie has started opening up lines of attack on Warren, but he keeps it policy based.
Jurek People tell me at the doors, like, yeah, you know, I like Bernie, but I really want a woman to be … it’s like, wait.
Jurek So, like you’re okay with a woman if she has worse policies? Like just because she’s a woman, because she has a vagina, that’s why you’re going to vote for her? Like, f**k, if we can beat Donald Trump, as long as we nominated a woman. Like f**king idiot. Like what the f**k? The world is on fire. This is an emergency situation, and you’re hung up on vaginas.
O’Keefe Is this someone you want to be part of your governemnt? Keep in mind, Jurek was an open book. On day one, he told us he wanted to punch “Nazis,” burn cities down if Trump wins again in a free election and spoke of shooting people if they couldn’t be “re-educated.” Is Kyle Jurek the true but hidden face of the Sanders campaign? Is the Sanders campaign going to fire Kyle? Are they going to say he’s a lone wolf or an isolated incident? Well, in our next release, you will hear Jurek say some of the most shocking and disturbing totaltarian aspirations ever spoken during a presidential campaign.

I will not be sorry for workers of the Bernie campaign

These guys are the ones who expected me to genuflect to the MeToo movement. They were the ones who generated trangenderism.

If the hopes of comrade Sanders are being dashed by comrade Warren, then cry me a river.

Infamous ANTIFA terror leader has his identity revealed following accusations of racism and abuse

According to Big League Politics, an Antifa terror leader has had his identity revealed after he has been accused of racism and abuse.

AntiFash GordonThe infamous ANTIFA terror leader, who hid anonymously behind the handle AntiFash Gordon (AFG) as he conspired to destroy people’s lives, has finally had his identity revealed after years of doxxing patriotic activists.

According to The Post Millennial, AFG’s real identity is 38-year-old Christian Michael Exoo, a Canton, NY resident who works at at St. Lawrence University as a library supervisor. He has doxxed countless conservative individuals, giving the identities of patriots to a left-wing mob empowered to destroy their lives with targeted hate campaigns.

Exoo is reportedly a product of the university system that harbors the radical Left. His father, mother and brother are employed as professors at St. Lawrence University. He has taught students how to doxx individuals on social media at the university as well.

Exoo uses his information science background to teach about “open-source intelligence research.” In 2017, he led a seminar at a conference on the campus hosted by Weave News. One slide from his presentation read: “In this exercise, we are going to find the Facebook profile of our subject, and find all of the posts he’s ‘liked.’”

When you look at the words of Kyle Jurek and the actions Christian Michael Exoo, they are liberal hypocrites

They profess free speech (for people who agree with them). They profess tolerance (for the groups they support, but not a person more). They claim that science backs their positions (unless you think that only girls have xx chromosomes and only boys have xy chromosomes).

German feminists burn pro-lifer’s car

In a 17 January 2020 Lifezette article, we find that a German femininist group torched a pro-life journalist’s car.

femininistsBurnCarIn a nation with a relatively recent historical record like Germany, you would think the radical Left, given their National Socialist heritage, would refrain from reminding people of their tendency to set fire to things they disdain like books and legislative buildings.

But that precedent matters not to the hard Left in any country, feminists included.

That’s why the clumsily-named “Feminist Autonomous Cell” (it has that robotic student Marxist sound to it typical of the kiddie Left the world over) didn’t think twice last month when they vandalized a church in Tubingen and then set fire to a car outside the church.

The violent femmes followed that up with torching the SUV of a pro-life journalist. This info according to the Catholic News Agency. They grabbed it from a website called “indymedia”, where the distaff thugs posted their confession of responsibility for the incidents.

Inclusion, just not you. Tolerance, unless you disagree with us.

The only thing that I can say is that liberals never seem to practice what they preach.

Consider how Bernie considered a practical belief only in Christ to be Islamophobic. Consider also how he has not suggested removal from office (as he did with Russell Vought) Rashida Tlaib’s or Ilhan Omar, even with their anti-Semitic statements.

Ten reasons to keep the heat on Democrats


  1. Pelosi may realize impeachment politics have ‘turned around’ in key states

Fox News points out that Pelosi may realize that her impeachment have turned politics around in key states.

pelosi“Special Report” anchor Bret Baier said on Thursday that impeachment politics may have turned against House Democrats in key states, prompting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to state that she may wait to send articles of impeachment to the GOP-controlled Senate.

“The politics of this perhaps turned around in some key states because, obviously, you would want to talk about it if you’ve accomplished the thing you’ve set out to do for a long period of time,” Baier told “America’s Newsroom” after Pelosi took only a limited number of questions about impeachment Thursday at her weekly news conference.

Pelosi’s move to wait to send their articles of impeachment against President Trump to the GOP-controlled Senate is based on a stated concern that they are incapable of holding a fair trial. Pelosi held a press conference on Wednesday following the House impeachment vote and was asked what would qualify as a “fair trial.”

She was then asked about possibly withholding the articles of impeachment from the Senate until they get certain reassurances, and the speaker refused to give a direct answer.

“Again, we’ll decide what that dynamic is, but we hope that the resolution of that process will be soon in the Senate,” she said.

The Speaker then repeatedly fended off questions about withholding the articles, before saying it would ultimately be a joint decision between the House and Senate.

“We will make our decision as to when we’re going to send — when we see what they’re doing on the Senate side, but that’s a decision that we will make jointly,” she said.

The impeachment vote total on the abuse-of-power count was 230–197, with Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voting present. The obstruction vote total was 229–198, with Gabbard also voting present on that count, too.

‘Awkward’: Negative Reactions Pour In After Bernie Sanders’ Outburst About Being White

The Daily Caller reports on an odd moment in the Democrat debate of December.

Bernie Sanders2020 presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders was widely panned in the media for his outburst about being white during Thursday’s Democratic debate.

Politico correspondent and moderator Tim Alberta noted a comment made by former President Barack Obama Monday about old men who won’t get “out of the way” being to blame for many world problems.

When Alberta said that Sanders, 78, was the oldest candidate on stage, the Vermont senator interjected, yelling “and I’m white as well!” and an awkward silence followed.

Negative reactions poured in after Sanders’ outburst.

“Awkward exchange of the night goes to Bernie Sanders,” the Sacramento Bee noted on Twitter.

CNN’s Chris Cillizza simply wrote, “True,” in response to Sanders’ outburst. Mediaite writer Tommy Christopher tweeted that the senator’s statement “is not the bumper sticker Bernie Sanders needs.”

Tom Namako, the news director at Buzzfeed News, highlighted the silence that followed Sanders’ comment. Washington Post reporter Amy B. Wang echoed this, tweeting out that his comment was followed by “some awkward silence.”

Culture editor at The Federalist Emily Jashinsky joked that “absolutely no one” had asked Sanders to comment about his race.

The Democrats have specialized in identity politics for decades

In fact, one of the pushes currently in effect centers on paying all Blacks in reparation for slavery. Never mind that:

  • Not all Blacks can trace their lineage to the period where slaves were owned
  • Some Blacks owned slaves
  • Not all White Southerners owned slaves
  • Although many will argue that the Civil War was not fought over slavery, it was certainly a central factor (and many Whites and Blacks died in that conflict)
  • No surviving slaves still live and no surviving slave owners still live

All this (and the numerous other identity politics measures) tends to do is to divide us. As years of Antifa (today’s KKK) and the resistance have shown us, we do not need more division.

  1. Look Where San Francisco Is Today — and What the Democrats Aren’t Fixing

Lifezette points out the mess created in San Francisco and how Democrats are not fixing the problems.

san francisco poopIt is one of the hallmarks of civilization, for it contributes to stable public health and suppresses the spread of infectious disease.

But in areas governed by a certain ideology, the public health situation has become so bad — virtually medieval — that diseases long thought to be eradicated are making a potential comeback to plague-city populations.

Welcome to San Francisco, California.

Under Democratic Party rule for more than several decades, the City by the Bay increasingly has become a haven for the very poor and the very rich — the exact opposite of the stated aspirations of Democratic Party platforms.

Young tech millionaires share the city spaces with the homeless and indigent in a scene more reminiscent of pre-revolutionary late 18th century Paris or Dickensian London than a modern American city.

Fox News medical correspondent Dr. Marc Siegel spoke to that earlier this week on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“Isn’t it ironic that a city of germaphobes, of exercise-conscious, environmentally conscious [people] … [is] now a city that’s awash in human waste, which is spreading hepatitis A outbreaks every year?” he said to Carlson, in part. “Big outbreaks of hepatitis A, rats in the streets feeding off the garbage in sewage, typhus, typhoid fever, rotten bacterial infections and even the plague may be coming.”

Siegel added, “And here’s the other thing that’s even worse. It’s not just the homeless population, right? People trek through those neighborhoods. They get [human waste] on their shoes and then they bring it to other neighborhoods — and then the diseases spread to other neighborhoods.”

  1. New Jersey is the 15th state to give illegals drivers licenses

One America News Network reports that New Jersey has become the 15th state to give drivers licenses to illegal aliens. Naturally, their legislature is dominated by Democrats.

NJ_licensesToIllegalAliensNew Jersey has become the 15th state in the U.S. to allow illegal immigrants to obtain drivers licenses. Governor Phil Murphy signed the legislation at Thursday’s event, which was attended by immigrants and advocates alike.

“Many of our undocumented neighbors are already behind the wheel and on our roads, going to work, school and the grocery store,” stated the governor. “Today’s bill will make us all safer, while ensuring that our immigrant communities can continue contributing to our state, our economy, and our future.”

Analysts said the move will benefit more than 400,000 illegals in the state. However, critics said the new law prioritizes illegal immigrants over everyone else, raises the potential for voter fraud and runs the risk of drawing more illegals to the state.

Murphy commented on the bills prior rejection by former Governor Chris Christie.

“When Assemblywoman Keanu first tried to have a hearing on this bill – not even a vote mind you, just a hearing – former Governor Chris Christie implied that it would open the door for terrorists,” he said.

The new law will not go into effect until January 2021.

  1. Selling Impeachment: Nancy Pelosi-Aligned PAC Spends Millions to Help Swing District Democrats

Breitbart reports in a 15 December 2019 article that a Pelosi-aligned political-action-committee has spent millions trying to help Democrats in tough spots.

pelosiAlignedSpeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s rush to impeachment is receiving an assist from the millions of dollars at least one PAC aligned with her has already spent on House Democrats who currently represent swing districts.

Those financial incentives appear to be increasingly relevant as the final vote on the two articles of impeachment is scheduled to come to the House floor this week.

Pelosi needs 216 ‘yes’ votes to pass each article (there are currently four vacancies in the 435 member House), and at least two Democrats have already announced they will vote no, barring any unknown developments, leaving Pelosi with a potential 232 yes votes (231 Democrats and one independent, Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI)), 16 more than the majority she needs.

But when Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN-7) told the Globe, a newspaper in his district, on Saturday that he would be a ‘no’ vote “barring new developments,” he also said that four to five other Democrats might join him.

If Peterson is right, and the four additional Democrats who he believes are ‘no’ votes join Van Drew and Peterson, the tally would drop to 228 ‘yes’ votes and 203 ‘no’ votes, just 12 more than the 216 needed to reach a majority.

Pelosi and her allies appear to be taking no chances. “NEW … HOUSE MAJORITY FORWARD — an arm of House Majority PAC, which supports House Democrats — is spending $2.5 MILLION thanking HOUSE DEMOCRATS for voting for the Democrats’ most recent bill aimed at lowering the cost of prescription drugs for Americans,” Politico reported on Friday:

THE 30-SECOND SPOT differs region by region. The spot for Rep. MAX ROSE , whose district is anchored in Staten Island, is called “Like Hell,” and the narrator says, “Max Rose knows you need to fight like hell to make things better. Thank him for fighting to lower drug prices.” The ad they cut for Rep. ABIGAIL SPANBERGER of Virginia is called “And You” — it says if Medicare could negotiate lower drug prices, it should be good for seniors, “for you, and you, and you.” The spot for Iowa Rep. ABBY FINKENAUER urges her to “keep taking names and lowering costs,” and highlights the bill’s benefits for rural Americans.

HOUSE MAJORITY FORWARD is also airing ads on behalf of Iowa Rep. CINDY AXNE, Maine Rep. JARED GOLDEN, Michigan Reps. ELISSA SLOTKIN and HALEY STEVENS, Nevada Rep. SUSIE LEE, New Jersey Rep. ANDY KIM, New Mexico Rep. XOCHITL TORRES SMALL, New York Reps. ANTONIO DELGADO and ANTHONY BRINDISI, Oklahoma Rep. KENDRA HORN, South Carolina Rep. JOE CUNNINGHAM, Utah Rep. BEN MCADAMS and Virginia Rep. ELAINE LURIA.

Ballotpedia reported on the origins of the House Majority PAC:

House Majority PAC was founded in 2011 to answer what its organizers saw as “the barrage of GOP outside spending and ensure that never again would groups funded by Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson and the like be able to drown out Democratic candidates.” The super PAC is associated with former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) who raised funds for the group in its early stages. It is also, according to Politico, seen as a sister group to the Senate Majority PAC, a super PAC associated with former Nevada Sen. Harry Reid (D).

All sixteen Democrat House members identified in the Politico report as beneficiaries of this current largesse from House Majority Forward are among the 31 House Democrats who represent districts President Trump won in 2016.

As of Sunday afternoon, two of them: Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) and Rep. Susie Lee (D-NV) have announced they will vote ‘yes’ on the articles of impeachment on the floor of the House this week.

  1. Democrat Xochitl Torres Small: Impeaching Trump Will Protect National Security, Constitution

Breitbart reported in a 15 December 2019 article on a Democrat who seems to be trying to convince others by bravado rather than logic.

em020419gFreshman swing district Democrat Rep. Xochitl Torres Small (D-NM) said Sunday that impeaching President Donald Trump will protect America’s national security, the Constitution, and American democracy.

Rep. Torres Small said that President Trump jeopardized national security through his conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The New Mexico Democrat said in a statement Sunday:

We cannot allow any President of either party to abuse the power of the highest office, jeopardizing our country’s national security in the process, to pressure foreign leaders to conduct investigations against political rivals. We also cannot allow any President to obstruct Congress’ power to investigate impeachable offenses by prohibiting White House and other administration officials from testifying or providing evidence. I must act to protect our national security, our Constitution, and the integrity of our elections.

The New Mexico Democrat represents one of the 31 congressional districts that President Trump won during the 2016 presidential election, and House Democrats flipped during the 2018 midterm elections. Republicans need to retake roughly 20 House seats to retake the House majority.

Then-candidate Torres Small beat Republican candidate Yvette Herrell by 1.8 percentage points.

In response to the report that Rep. Torres Small will vote for both articles of impeachment against Trump, Herrell said that “it’s time to vote out” the New Mexico Democrat.

Herrell told Breitbart News Saturday that the House Democrats impeachment “charade” is wearing “thin” for Americans and New Mexicans.

  1. Warren Campaign Touted Endorsement From Anti-Israel Politician Who Called Cory Booker ‘AIPAC Puppet’: Report

As reported by the Daily Caller in a 13 December 2019 article, it seems that Warren wants to brag on an endorsement from an anti-Israel politician.

LieawathaDemocratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s campaign touted the endorsement of an anti-Israel politician who reportedly called Democratic New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker an “AIPAC puppet.”

Americans and Palestinians for Peace (AMPAL) leader John Dabeet endorsed Warren in November, the Free Beacon reports, and the Massachusetts senator’s campaign included Dabeet in a list of “Iowa leaders” who are backing her in the Democratic primary. Dabeet is also a Muscatine Community School District board member.

Dabeet has praised Warren for standing up against Israel, saying in a November Facebook post, “Thank you Senator Warren for standing up for what’s right and for acknowledging the Palestinian deaths, and the Palestinians rights to live in peace and freedom in their homeland in the past four days due to the Israeli attacks on Gaza along with Senator Sanders. You got our support and will connect with many people across Iowa and United States and will ask them to stand by you.”

Dabeet has called Israel a “fake democracy,” and labeled Sen. Booker an “AIPAC puppet,” the Beacon reports, adding that the AMPAL referred to a deceased leader of the terrorist Palestinian Liberation Organization in 2016 as an “immortal leader” and “martyr leader.” AIPAC, American Israel Public Affairs Committee, is a pro-Israel advocacy group.

The Iowa politician has also called for a boycott of Israel and tweeted his support for Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, both of whom support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement.

  1. Another Trump District Democrat Ripped By Constituents Over Impeachment: ‘If She Votes For Impeachment, She’s Screwed’

The Daily Caller uses a 13 December 2019 article to repeat some promises from the constituents to a freshman Representative.

kendra_hornConstituents ripped Democratic Oklahoma Rep. Kendra Horn on Sunday, saying Democrats focus too much on impeachment and too little on improving the lives of Americans.

Horn, who represents most of Oklahoma, Pottawatomie and Seminole counties, spoke at a Sunday town hall meeting where voters angrily questioned her on why she continues to focus on impeachment. President Donald Trump won Horn’s district in the 2016 presidential election, and eight Republicans announced they will run for her vulnerable seat in 2020, according to the Oklahoman.

“As an independent voter, I think you’re in a lot of trouble if you vote for this impeachment,” said Edmond, Oklahoma, resident Susan Jaslow, the Oklahoman reported. Jaslow voted for Horn in 2018, but said she is part of a group of independent voters upset about the impeachment circus.

“If she votes for impeachment, she’s screwed,” Jaslow added.

“We want Congress to get back to work for the American people, please,” said Ronda Peterson, who identified herself as a conservative. Peterson said Congress has been obsessed with impeaching Trump all year.

Horn responded to Peterson by saying, “It’s frustrating for me.” Horn has said she has not made up her mind about impeachment, and her press secretary told the Daily Caller she is “reviewing the articles of impeachment” and “has not announced a decision.”

“Because that’s not what I’m doing on a day-to-day basis,” Horn told Peterson. “I didn’t run to impeach anybody. I ran to fight for Oklahoma, for education, for health care … and that’s where I’ve been spending my time.”

  1. These five Democrats should be doomed

According to Lifezette, these five Democrats should be doomed due to their vote against President Trump and his impeachment.

There will be a political price to pay for moderate and freshman Democrats if they vote for impeachment and if President Donald Trump carried their districts in the 2016 general election.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) must know this, but nevertheless she plows on, held hostage, some believe, by her party’s far-Left wing.

By pushing the Trump impeachment, she could even be imperiling her own speakership.

But apparently personal animus toward the president and fear of her own Left “trump” political sense.

Here are the five House Dems who will most suffer for her blind obstinacy if they follow her down the impeachment path.

JoeCunningham1.) Rep. Joe Cunningham (D-S.C.). The attorney won narrowly by one point in last year’s midterms on an anti-off shore drilling campaign. But Trump took the district by 13 points in 2016.

South Carolina is deep red and his chances do not look good anyway.

Tie an impeachment vote around his neck — and he’s a goner.

2.) Rep. Anthony Brindisi (D-N.Y.). Trump took New York’s 22nd Congressional District by 15 points in 2016 and Brindisi won by two in 2018.

This upstate district looks solid for Trump (this particular district extends from the east end of Lake Ontario through Central New York to the Pennsylvania border, including Utica, Rome and Binghamton).

And with the president on the 2020 ballot, if Brindisi votes for impeachment, he will get hurt — a lot.

3.) Rep. Kendra Horn (D-Okla.). Oklahoma is one of the most politically conservative states in America. President Trump won its 5th Congressional District there by 14 points in 2016. Horn, an attorney, won by one meager point in 2018.

She has so far out-fundraised her possible GOP opponents.

But the power of incumbency can be responsible for that. Odds are, with the president running this year, she is toast. Add a yes vote on impeachment — and the GOP can pick the curtains.

4.) Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.). Staten Island is a GOP island surrounded by a New York City sea of blue. Trump won in the Staten Island borough by 10 points in 2016. Rose won by 6 in 2018.

Though not that far apart in numbers, the current trend and the district’s history indicate a strong Trump showing in 2020.

If Rose, an Army combat veteran, bucks his district and favors the impeachment of the president, he can kiss that six-point spread goodbye — and he puts himself in serious peril.

5.) Rep. Xochitl Torres-Small (D-N.M.). Trump won this district by 10 percentage points in 2016 and Torres-Small, a water rights lawyer, won it by 2 in 2018.

As some of her support probably came from Democrat moderates who do not support impeachment, there isn’t a good range of options for her when it comes to an impeachment vote. Just as in many close Dem seats, if she votes yes, she loses some moderates.

A “no” vote — and her base deserts her. She can afford neither in that district.

Also of note: Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.). Not a freshman, Collin Peterson is a conservative Democrat and the only Dem who could hold onto a district that went for Trump in a landslide in 2016 by 31 points.

These five Democrats all voted for the impeachment of Trump. Now, they need to pay.

Since little else but omnibus spending bills has made it out of both the Senate and House, none of these Democrats have any accomplishments to brag about (unless they want to brag about impeaching President Trump). So, if you do not support the impeachment of President Trump, you need to make these do-nothing Democrats pay.

  1. Unfit To Print Episode 32: Media Scrambles To Retract Obama’s Immigration Record

The Daily Caller points out how the media scrambled to retract Obama’s immigration record when they discovered that they had incriminated Obama rather than Trump.

Media outlets discovered they received misleading data from the UN this week, but instead of correcting their stories, they erased them entirely.

On this week’s episode of Unfit to Print, Amber Athey explains why AFP and Reuters retracted articles claiming the U.S. has 100,000 children in migrant detention centers after they found out that statistic is from 2015, when President Barack Obama was in office.

The story apparently wasn’t as important when it couldn’t be used to attack President Donald Trump!

Odd that there were no retractions, no corrections

Since they could not continue their 95%+ negative reporting on Trump and would have to point out that the reporting would have to bring down their demi-god Obama, they tried to just sweep it under the rug.

Since we regularly see the main stream media (the ones that are rarely quoted here because they do not report on issues critical of Democrats) relentlessly attack conservatives and then lob softballs at Democrats, there can be no wonder why few trust journalists.

  1. Elizabeth Warren Denied Sending Her Kids To Private School, Despite Sending Son To Elite Private School

Daily Caller points out another bald-faced lie by Lie-a-watha, Liz Warren when she told a woman that she (Warren) only sent her kids to public school.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren denied sending her children to private schools, despite the fact that she sent her son to an elite private school.

When school choice activists confronted her after a campaign rally Thursday, Warren said her children didn’t go to private schools.

“We are going to have the same choice that you had for your kids, because I read that your children went to private schools,” one activist told Warren. “No, my children went to public schools,” the Massachusetts senator replied.

But publicly available records show Warren, who has pledged to crack down on school choice if elected, chose to send her son Alexander to Kirby Hall, an elite private school in the Austin area, as the Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported. Kirby Hall’s 1987 yearbook lists Alexander Warren among the school’s fifth-graders.

If Ms. Warren wants to reach minority communities, she might want to consider supporting charter schools

Charter schools have enjoyed a strong support among a number of minority communities (possibly since they provide a way out of the failed inner-city schools). Therefore, if Ms. Warren has more kinship with the poor than with the education bureaucracy, she might want to reconsider her blind support of the Department of Education as the Democrats have imagined it.

  1. Former Harry Reid Staffer Jabs Buttigieg: ‘Sneaky Pete’ Only Got 8,500 Votes in His Last Election

Breitbart went to a Harry Reid staffer who observed that Buttigieg only got 8,500 votes in his last election. This could be a problem during an election where Democrats have hemorrhaged voters.

Democrats continue ripping Mayor Pete Buttigieg for only earning 8,500 votes in his last campaign for re-election as the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana — which has a population of roughly 100,000 people.

Former Deputy Chief of Staff to Sen. Harry Reid Adam Jentleson mocked Buttigieg on Friday after the mayor released a new ad against giving tuition-free college education for children of wealthy parents.

“A guy who received a total of 8,500 votes in his last election now wants to be POTUS because he believes in his own ambition above all else,” he wrote on Twitter.


Jentleson called Buttigieg “Sneaky Pete” for throwing ideas embraced by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders “under the bus” for a position that was more “consultant-tested.”

The attack against Buttigieg’s weak voter draw was also deployed by Democratic strategic Alexis Grenell in April as proof that sexism was “alive and well in 2020.”

Buttigieg frequently cites his election in a midwestern city within the red state of Indiana as proof he can appeal to all voters.

But South Bend is overwhelmingly Democrat, thus explaining the low voting numbers. The last time the city elected a Republican mayor was in 1964.

Buttigieg not only cannot connect with current Black Democrats and lost his share of voters in successive elections, he was (as shown from the above article) elected by a small group

As opposed to the theme that Buttigieg has promoted where he was repeatedly elected as a popular Democrat mayor, it seems that Buttigieg slipped into the office because of voter apathy.

  1. College students Fainting From Starvation in Venezuela’s Failing College System

Socialism’s reality does not work well

The Union Journal notes how Venezuelan college students have been fainting from hunger as they study in the college system.

Tons of of kids filed into their college courtyard to listen to a neighborhood Catholic bishop lead prayers for his or her schooling.

“We pray for the youths who’re on the streets and may’t come to highschool,” mentioned Bishop Jorge Quintero, addressing the Augusto D’Aubeterre Lyceum college within the seaside city of Boca de Uchire on a steamy morning in October. “There are a number of them.”

By the tip of the 15-minute ceremony, 5 youngsters had fainted and two of them have been whisked away in an ambulance.

The faintings on the major college have turn into a daily prevalence as a result of so many college students come to class with out consuming breakfast, or dinner the evening earlier than. In different faculties, youngsters wish to know if there’s any meals earlier than they resolve whether or not to go in any respect.

“You possibly can’t educate skeletal and hungry folks,” mentioned Maira Marín, a trainer and union chief in Boca de Uchire.

Venezuela’s devastating six-year financial disaster is hollowing out the varsity system — as soon as the satisfaction of the oil-rich nation and, for many years, an engine that made the nation one of the upwardly cell within the area. These faculties prior to now supplied youngsters even in distant areas with a strong shot on the nation’s greatest universities, which in flip opened doorways to high American faculties and a spot amongst Venezuela’s elite.

Starvation is simply one of many many issues chipping away at them now. Thousands and thousands of Venezuelans have fled the nation in recent times, depleting the ranks of scholars and academics alike. Most of the educators who stay have been pushed from the career, their wages made practically nugatory by years of relentless hyperinflation. In some locations, barely 100 college students present up at faculties that after taught 1000’s.

The collapse of the schooling system in Venezuela is just not solely condemning a whole technology to poverty, however dangers setting the nation’s improvement again many years and severely stunting its development potential, specialists and academics say.

“A complete technology is being left behind,” mentioned Luis Bravo, an schooling researcher on the Central College of Venezuela in Caracas. “In the present day’s schooling system doesn’t permit youngsters to turn into significant members of society.”

The federal government stopped publishing schooling statistics in 2014. However visits to greater than a dozen faculties in 5 Venezuelan states and interviews with dozens of academics and oldsters point out that attendance has plummeted this yr.

  1. Illegal Alien Returns to U.S. After Killing Four American Kids in 2008

Breitbart relates the account of an illegal alien who killed four American children, was deported, and has now returned.

An illegal alien woman returned to the United States soon after being deported for killing four American children in a 2008 school bus crash in Cottonwood, Minnesota.

Olga Marina Franco del Cid, a 35-year-old illegal alien from Guatemala, was found guilty for 24 charges including four counts of criminal vehicular homicide after she ran a stop sign on February 18, 2008 and killed 13-year-old Jesse Javens, 12-year-old Reed Stevens, nine-year-old Emilee Olson, and nine-year-old Hunter Javens.

The four children Franco del Cid killed were among 28 students on a school bus at the time, 14 others of which were injured in the crash.

In October 2008, Franco del Cid was sentenced to just 12 and a half years for the children’s deaths. By April 2016, she had served only eight years in Minnesota and was set free. Immediately on release she was turned over to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency and deported from the U.S. in May 2016.

Sometime between late 2016 and 2019, ICE officials said Franco del Cid returned to the U.S. and was living less than three hours away from where she had left those four children dead in 2008.

This week, Franco del Cid was arrested by ICE in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota. The illegal alien may face between 10 to 20 years in prison for illegally re-entering the U.S.

While the majority of the ultra-leftist “Squad” endorsed Warren’s fellow contender and ideological similar Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Warren landed an endorsement from Pressley, who hails from her home state, and secured the backing of freshman Democrats Porter and Haaland.

“It’s my honor to have @Deb4CongressNM, @KatiePorterOC, and @AyannaPressley as my Campaign Co-Chairs. Big structural change can’t wait, and we’ll fight for it—together.” Warren announced on Twitter:

  1. Follow the money from rich Chinese to Democrats to see how this bill came to be

House Passes Bill Opening Backdoor Immigration Route for Wealthy Chinese

Breitbart reports in a 6 December 2019 article on a follow-the-money issue for Democrats.

The House quietly passed a bill on December 3 to crack open a backdoor route for wealthy Chinese to buy their way into U.S. citizenship by lending money to the U.S. real estate industry.

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) portrayed the bill as a boost to trade between the United States and Portugal. But the bill allows wealthy Chinese to get into the United States after first buying Portuguese citizenship.

“Congress is getting duped. … [The bill is] creating a new path for Chinese people,” said one Capitol Hill source.

Wealthy Chinese can buy “golden visa” citizenship from Portugal’s government in as little as 35 days. If House bill H.R. 565 is approved by the Senate and becomes law, then the new Chinese citizens of Portugal will be able to move into the U.S. by getting E-1 Treaty Trader or E-2 Treaty Investor renewable visas.

Cicilline’s office declined to comment to Breitbart News.

The bill may have a lot of hidden support in the Senate because it could provide a band-aid fix for the backlogged EB-5 program.

The EB-5 program allows wealthy foreigners to buy green cards by lending money to U.S. businesses, mostly to real estate investors. But the money inflow has shrunk because immigration law seeks to promote diversity among immigrants by capping the annual share of EB-5 green cards that can be bought by people from each country, such as China or India. This “country cap” rule means that new Chinese EB-5 buyers must wait more than ten years to get delivery of their backlogged green cards.

Democrats can’t live and let live — they just force compliance

Ellen Page slams Chris Pratt for attending ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ’ church

We see in a 10 February 2019 Fox News article that Chris Pratt was slammed for attending an “anti-LGBTQ” church.

Ellen Page slammed Chris Pratt for attending a church she claimed is “infamously anti-LGBTQ” and doubled down on her comments on Saturday.

Page’s criticism came after Pratt appeared on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” and talked about being religious and completing a 21-day fast inspired by the Biblical Prophet Daniel. “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part” actor frequently attends Zoe Church, which is modeled after Hillsong Church, a megachurch founded in Australia but which has locations in New York City and Los Angeles, the New York Times previously reported. Variety stated Pratt was also a Hillsong church attendee.

Following Pratt’s appearance on the late-night show, Page took to Twitter to criticize Pratt for attending the church, which she did not name.

“Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too?” She tweeted along with a Hollywood Reporter article about Pratt’s interview.

Do you remember when the Gay-Straight Alliance groups were starting in the late 1990’s? The claim then was that they just wanted acceptance by the society. Now, they want to push out anyone who associates with anyone else who judges them.

All the time, they accuse Christians of being brown shirts.

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates My Father also. If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well. But they have done this to fulfill the word that is written in their Law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’ (John 15: 18-25 NASB)

Democrat delegate backs down on Justin Fairfax impeachment push

Patrick Hope will not impeach another Democrat

A 11 February 2019 Fox News article points out how Democrats have decided to treat one of their own with kid gloves (even though he has two recent accusations of sexual assault).

A Virginia delegate who threatened to introduce articles of impeachment against Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax amid sexual assault allegations has hit pause, saying in a tweet that “additional conversation” is needed before anything is filed.

Patrick Hope, a fellow Democrat and member of the Virginia House of Delegates, announced Friday that he intended to introduce articles of impeachment against Fairfax unless he resigned by Monday. This prompted the two women who have accused Fairfax of assault to say they’d be willing to testify in any impeachment proceedings.

But Hope on Monday morning tweeted that he’s decided to wait after receiving “sincere and thoughtful feedback” on a draft he sent to his fellow delegates.

“Yesterday I sent draft language to my colleagues on the first step of an impeachment action regarding the Lt. Governor,” Hope tweeted. “There has been an enormous amount of sincere and thoughtful feedback which has led to additional conversations that need to take place before anything is filed.”

Amy Klobuchar's snow storm as she rails against global warming

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar joins 2020 Dem race

In a snowstorm and in 15-degree weather, another Democrat joined those making a presidential bid while decrying “global warming,” as we find in a 11 February 2019 Fox News article.

President Trump poked fun at Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., Sunday for vowing to tackle climate change as she kicked off her 2020 presidential campaign in a snowy, freezing Minneapolis park.

“Well, it happened again,” Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday evening. “Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!”

When we consider that Ms. Klocuchar, Ms. Harris, and Mr. Booker sat on the Judiciary Committee and voted against Justice Kavanaugh even though none of the witnesses named by Ms. Ford corroborated her testimony and, now, they will likely raise millions on that notoriety — it turns the stomach.

To those who respond to this with “I stand with Christine,” do you also stand with the accusers of Keith Ellison and Justin Fairfax? Keith Ellison’s accusers had photos, doctors’ reports, and police reports. The only things that have been denied about the words of Justin Fairfax’s accusers has been whether the encounters have been consensual.

Reality stinks for Kamala Harris

Willie Brown -- Kamala Harris cannot beat Donald Trump

Willie Brown Throws Shade at Ex-Girlfriend Kamala Harris: Can’t Beat Trump

10 February 2019 Breitbart article points out some words that Kamala Harris likely will not want to hear.

Former San Francisco mayor and California State Assembly speaker Willie Brown threw shade at his ex-girlfriend, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and the other contenders for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, writing Saturday that none of them can beat President Donald Trump.

In his weekly column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Brown wrote:

Make no mistake, President Trump’s State of the Union address was the kickoff for his 2020 re-election campaign, and so far I’ve yet to see a Democrat who can beat him.

[T]he overnight polling after the speech showed that once again, he connected with voters, at least enough voters to make him a 2020 favorite.

You can’t say the same for the Democratic contenders. They all have impressive credentials, winning personalities and positive messages, but none displays the “people personality” that our media-savvy president has mastered.

Let’s just hope Democrats can figure out that we need to go beyond the left and motivate voters across the board, just as midterm congressional campaigns did under Nancy Pelosi’s leadership.

Although there may be a segment of the population who want handouts from the government (probably the same population that was never educated on the failure of socialist programs like the Mayflower compact), both conservatives and independent voters will not vote for the radical leftist programs promoted by the likes of Kamala Harris. That leaves her with a voting base of about 30% of the population — not a winning majority.

Democrats don’t want to admit how socialist their programs tend

The ash heap of history

Ocasio-Cortez adviser admits he falsely claimed Green New Deal didn’t promise security for those ‘unwilling’ to work’

Tucker Carlson gets Ocasio-Cortez adviser Robert Hockett to admit to his lying

A 10 February 2019 Fox News article points out an embarrassing moment for an AOC apologist.

A top adviser to New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has admitted that an official “Green New Deal” document posted by Ocasio-Cortez’s office contained a guarantee of economic security even for those “unwilling to work” — but not before he went viral in progressive circles for claiming the exact opposite, repeatedly, in an interview with Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Cornell University Law School Professor Robert Hockett, who counsels Ocasio-Cortez on environmental initiatives, challenged host Tucker Carlson when he quoted from an outline and list of “frequently asked questions” (FAQ) that had been posted on Ocasio-Cortez’s official website. A similar version of the FAQ was also shared with NPR.

The FAQ and background materials from Ocasio-Cortez’s website stated that the Green New Deal will provide “Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work,” and the FAQ sent to NPR also noted, “We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s office removed the documents from her website amid an online backlash. A version of the FAQ that referred to “farting cows” is still available on NPR’s website, and a similar version that was posted to Ocasio-Cortez’s website is currently viewable on an Internet archiving service. Both versions of the documents describe providing economic security for those “unwilling to work,” and state, “This is a massive transformation of our society with clear goals and a timeline” at a “scale not seen since World War 2.”

Carlson asked Hockett at the outset of the interview: “Why would we ever pay people who are ‘unwilling to work’?”

In a head-turning moment heard around the Internet, Hockett replied flatly, “Uh, we never would, right? And AOC has never said anything like that, right? I think you’re referring to some sort of document — I think some doctored document that somebody other than us has been circulating. … She’s actually tweeted it out to laugh at it, if you look at her latest tweets. It seems apparently, some Republicans have put it out there. I don’t know the details.”

When the terms of a proposal are so extreme that the back-up team has to lie about it, you know that it is a bad proposal. If put into law, this Green New Deal would:

  • Make all private cars illegal (bye-bye, Ford Mustang & Toyota Prius)
  • Require the refit of all buildings in the US with green technology
  • Make airplane use illegal (except for government officials)
  • Close down the oil, nuclear, and coal energy sectors
  • Pay those who are unwilling to work
  • Eliminate the US cattle population (bye-bye, steaks, burgers, milk, yogurt, cheese, butter, …)
  • And a few other outlandish proposals

The mysterious case of AOC’s scrubbed ‘Green New Deal’ details

Democrats incredulously claim Republicans scrubbed AOC’s web page according to a 9 February 2019 Washington Examiner article.

On Feb. 5, the congressional office of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a new blog entry under “energy issues” detailing her “Green New Deal” proposal and answering “frequently asked questions.”

The page, announcing an 8:30 a.m. launch on Feb. 7, is now gone, and a top adviser suggested Friday it was actually authored and distributed by the GOP.

By the afternoon of Feb. 7, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., removed the document from her website without explanation but following backlash and even ridicule over the radical plans outlined within it, including a call to “eliminate emissions from cows or air travel” — which would functionally ban the latter — and to provide “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

The document vanished just hours after Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., formally unveiled a “Green New Deal” resolution that has so far attracted 67 Democratic co-sponsors in the House. It’s a nonbinding measure that is less detailed than the now-deleted FAQ document but calls for a complete and speedy overhaul of the nation’s energy, transportation, and farming sectors in order to eliminate carbon emissions in the coming decades.

The communications staff has so far not responded to an inquiry about the now-missing blog post.

But on Saturday morning, chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti tweeted that the FAQ page was indeed posted by the Ocasio-Cortez staff but was done so in error. He called the page “an early draft of a FAQ that was clearly unfinished and that doesn’t represent the GND resolution got published to the website by mistake (idea was to wait for launch, monitor q’s, and rewrite that FAQ before publishing).”

Do you think that (possibly) they were fixing their own document and it had to come down during that time?

He Stabbed His Girlfriend’s Stomach to Kill Her Baby, Won’t be Charged Because of New York’s Abortion Law

He Stabbed His Girlfriend’s Stomach to Kill Her Baby

According to a 11 February 2019 Life News article, a murderer is having his charges reduced due to New York’s ungodly abortion laws.

A week ago yesterday, a New Yorker from Queens, Anthony Hobson, beat and dragged his girlfriend, Jennifer Irigoyen, down a flight of stairs and then stabbed her in the neck, abdomen and torso. He stabbed her in the stomach because he wanted to kill the baby he fathered (some news stories say she was 14 weeks pregnant and others put the figure at 20 weeks). The pregnant woman shouted, “He’s got a knife. He’s going to kill the baby!”

Hobson killed both the woman and her baby. He was immediately charged with two crimes, but the charge for killing her baby was subsequently dropped: it was noted that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new abortion law provides no penalties for the killing of unborn children; abortion was removed from the criminal code and inserted into the public health law. Cuomo has not commented on what he has wrought.

The Albany lawmaker who sponsored the bill that Cuomo lobbied for, State Sen. Liz Krueger, and her colleague in the senate, Anna Kaplan, authored an article in the Times Union that disagrees with the Queens prosecutor’s interpretation of the law. They say there is nothing in the law that prevents any prosecutor from charging someone like Hobson for a crime. They say Hobson could be prosecuted for first-degree assault, a sentence that is harsher than the previous sentence for “unlawful abortion.”

End of Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign? New claim of ‘American Indian’ heritage

As we see in a 7 February 2019 USA Today article, it seems that the main stream media has turned against the false native American.

In her own handwriting, Elizabeth Warren claimed Native American heritage. It’s hard to imagine what she was doing if it wasn’t to advance her career.

Another week, another apology from Sen. Elizabeth Warren for her phony claims of Native American heritage. But the latest evidence against her should spell the end of her presidential ambitions.

Sen. Warren’s discredited story of Indian ancestry has made her an object of ridicule coming from President Donald Trump, who dubbed her “Pocahontas,” and conservatives generally who prefer the more pointed “Fauxcahontas.” Liberals seem to have been willing to give her the benefit of the doubt, seemingly accepting each new explanation for her shifting story of how and why she was mistaken for a member of the Cherokee Nation.

Warren’s 1986 registration card for the State Bar of Texas could put an end to all that. The Washington Post obtained a copy of the signed document in which she wrote that her race was “American Indian.” This supports the two critical charges against her: that she knowingly and personally claimed Native American heritage, and that she did so for the purpose of career advancement.

Lie-a-watha. Faux-a-hontas.

Elizabeth Warren Identified as American Indian in Texas Bar Registration

A 6 February 2019 article in Slate showed how Elizabeth Warren claimed Native American heritage on a form to the State bar of Texas.

Elizabeth Warren, who is on the verge of formally announcing a presidential bid, apologized on Tuesday for ever having identified as American Indian.

“I can’t go back,” Warren said in an interview with the Washington Post. “But I am sorry for furthering confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and harm that resulted.”

At the same time, the Post discovered unequivocal proof that the senator had formally identified as Native American in paperwork decades ago, as she had written, by hand, “American Indian” in the “Race” field in a 1986 form for the State Bar of Texas. The form reads: “The following information is for statistical purposes only and will not be disclosed to any person or organization without the express written consent of the attorney.”
