The haters may delude themselves into believing they are “patriots” who “care about our country,” but they expose themselves as unhinged and soulless. Via NY Post. Folk-rock legend David Crosby is in hot water after firing off a tasteless tweet cheering on Saturday evening’s deadly inferno at Trump Tower. “[O]h boy ……burn baby burn,” wrote the ‘60s music icon in a since-deleted post as the fatal blaze raged on the 50th floor of the Fifth Avenue high-rise, screenshots of the offending tweet show. Though the message didn’t specifically mention Trump Tower, when fellow user @JeffreyGuterman tweeted Crosby asking if he was referencing the blaze, the 76-year-old folkie replied, “yes Jeffrey,” screenshots show…. A relic from the "peace & love" generation...

The ‘Climate Hysterics’ finally got their day in court. But things did not go well for them. Judge Alsup asked a simple question: “What do you think caused the Ice Age?” The expert’s answer: “A wobble in the Earth’s orbit.” And things went downhill from there. Via Free Beacon. A civil suit playing out between five American oil companies and the municipalities of Oakland and San Francisco started off poorly for climate change activists. In preparation for California v. Chevron, the date for which has yet to determined, U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup ordered the litigants converge for a “climate change tutorial” in an effort to ensure all parties understood the scientific foundation that would form the basis of...

The ‘Palestinians,’ with the help of the Israel-hating U.N., already claimed themselves as the “rightful owners” of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, the ‘Tomb of the Patriarchs’ in Hebron (The world’s most ancient Jewish site and the second holiest place for Jews, where the patriarchs and matriarchs of the Jewish people – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, and Leah are buried), and the ‘Western Wall’ in Jerusalem, which is the only remaining wall of the outside courtyard of King Solomon’s Temple. When they are finished with their list of Jewish and Christian sites, maybe they can move on to claim ownership of the Eiffel Tower. And maybe Buckingham Palace. And the Washington Monument. Stay tuned. Via Jerusalem Post....

The chutzpah of Josh Earnest, the Obama Administration’s Press Secretary, is breathtaking. Doing a little research (just Google “Josh Earnest lies”), a trove of his twisted lying popped up. Here are just a few of his many “gems”: Remember when Obama claimed that the Jewish victims of the Muslim attack on a Paris kosher supermarket attack were killed “not because of who they were, but because of where they randomly happened to be” ? Here’s Josh’s explanation, via RealClearPolitics: And this, via RealClearPolitics: Tense: Obama Administration Refuses To Give Details About Cash Payment To Iran; “Why Is That Relevant?” Via Washington Examiner. Josh Earnest, who served as White House press secretary in the Obama administration, jabbed at current press secretary...

Something is very wrong with Oakland. And, as they say, “The fish rots from the head.” Yes, that would be Mayor Libby Schaaf. Via Daily Signal. Owners of a California coffee shop doubled down on their refusal to serve police officers, claiming cops threaten their “physical and emotional safety.” The Hasta Muerte Coffee owners refused service to a Latino police sergeant March 8 and are now defending that decision despite growing outrage, KTVU reported. The shop is a worker-owned collective with a mural criticizing police shootings and the militarization of law enforcement. Oakland’s police union wrote a letter to the owners complaining about the measure. A local city councilman said while he disagrees with the policy, there aren’t any plans...

Maybe the unions need to discuss this with Kate Steinle. Oh wait… Via Breitbart. California unions claim that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) immigration raids across Northern California will destroy farmers by causing fruit to “die on the vine.” President of the United Farm Workers of America Arturo Rodriguez has complained that last week’s ICE raids in Northern California, which led to widespread panic, is a threat to California’s agricultural industry. His concerns were echoed by President of the Western Growers Association, Tom Nassif, who told Bloomberg that 75 percent of California’s 2 million farm workers are undocumented (illegal) aliens. The union’s supposed outpouring concern for business came after it was reported that the Department of Justice is investigating...

Big food companies are “21st-century pedophiles,” and ice cream is junk food? Who knew? Via Weekly Standard. Readers will be aware of the war on junk food. We think, for instance, of former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s unsuccessful attempt to ban large soft drinks from the city, the FDA’s ban on trans fats, and the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that fast food chains prominently display calorie information…. But it could be worse. Compared to what the Chilean government is doing, as we learned recently from the New York Times, the United States is a libertarian paradise. “The Chilean government, facing skyrocketing rates of obesity, is waging war on unhealthy foods with a phalanx of marketing restrictions, mandatory packaging,...

In other words, CNN is calling the student a liar. So maybe the CNN “apple” is really rotten. Via Breitbart. CNN issued a statement Thursday morning denying that it had asked a shooting survivor to ask a “scripted question” at the CNN Town Hall on guns on Wednesday evening in Sunrise, Florida. On Wednesday evening, junior Colton Haab, a survivor of last week’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, told local Fort Lauderdale ABC affiliate WPLG that CNN had invited him to appear at the town hall, but he had withdrawn after being asked to recite a “scripted” question…. The CNN Town Hall was stacked heavily in favor of gun control, and speakers were carefully...

Who doesn’t love butterflies? But really, a lawsuit because an endangered butterfly species might have trouble flying over the border wall? And what about U.S. citizens’ lives being endangered by a chaotic no-secure-border policy? Via IBT. ….A lawsuit was filed by the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD), along with other environmental groups, against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which stated the Quino checkerspot butterfly, which is native to southern California and northwestern Mexico, could be threatened by the proposed border wall. According to the lawsuit, the Quino checkerspot butterfly (Euphydryas editha quino), which is already listed as endangered under the Federal Endangered Species Act, cannot fly high enough to follow their normal migration patterns if the wall was built....

I am so sick of hearing the Democrat talking point about Obama being such a “great friend to Israel.” The reality is that under Obama’s IRS, Islamic groups with ties to terrorists had no trouble getting a tax-exempt status, groups such as Gaza’s Hope, Friends of Al-Rowwad USA Inc, American Charities for Palestine, and Institute for Palestine Studies USA Inc. But Z Street, founded in 2009, to “educate Americans about the Middle East and Israel’s defense against terror, ” did not receive the tax-exempt status. Why? Because the IRS determined that Israel was “a country with terrorists” and they needed to investigate if Z Street was “funding terrorism.” When Z Street mounted a lawsuit, IRS froze their application. Finally, Z...

When you’ve lost Mika and Morning Schmoe… Via NY Post. “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff has sunk from the penthouse to the outhouse in the weeks since his error-filled White House tell-all was published — with even some of President Trump’s harshest critics telling Wolff to hit the road. Wolff was tossed from MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” by co-host Mika Brzezinski on Thursday morning after a contentious debate over the author’s sleazy allegation that Trump was bedding UN Ambassador Nikki Haley…. When Wolff — whose book painted an alarming picture of an administration mired in chaos and a president ill-equipped to do his job — evaded the question, Brzezinski lowered the boom. “If you don’t get what we’re talking about,...

If Bernie Sanders “cannot recall” a provocative speech he made on the floor of the Senate five years ago, maybe he should undergo a mental status evaluation ? You know, the one that President Trump passed with flying colors. Via Free Beacon. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) on Friday denied saying in 2013 “we cannot bring the government to a shutdown,” and accusing Republicans of wanting their way “no matter what,” but he did. And after the denial, MSNBC host Ali Velshi didn’t call him out on it. Velshi asked Sanders about the quote because in was used by Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney during a Friday press briefing. Mulvaney brought up Sanders’ earlier comments while he...

Remember when CNN, MSNBC and all the other biased, er, Lib sites cried “fowl”, er “foul” when a high-ranking Obama official said Netahyahu was a chickensh** ? Yeah, neither do I. Via Daily Caller. In 2014, a high-ranking Obama official called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a “chickenshit.” The derogatory term was meant as an insult to Netanyahu for his cautious posturing on the Obama-proposed peace process with the Palestinians. The comment was made to Jeffrey Goldberg and published in the Atlantic…. The comment did not help and already uneasy relationship between the Obama Administration and the ruling Israeli government. John Kerry was forced to call and apologize to Netanyahu on behalf of Obama and the administration…. Obama also personally...

This is nothing more than a political stunt, driven by Bill de Blasio’s delusion, er, hope, that he can run for POTUS on the Dem ticket in 2020. And speaking of stunts: When de Blasio was confronted by the fact that he takes a gas-guzzling SUV from Manhattan to his old gym in Brooklyn, instead of going to a gym several blocks from the Manhattan mayor’s residence at Gracie Mansion, he responded that cutting out the daily SUV trips would be nothing more than “cheap symbolism.” Via Washington Times. A week after a brutal snowstorm froze New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio delivered a one-two punch Wednesday in the name of climate change, announcing he will seek billions in...

Poor Patty Murray looks like she’d rather be waterboarded than have to listen to Chuckie’s rant. HT American Thinker. "We believe you're messing up America.
