Didn’t Ocasio-Cortez run on “total transparency” and a refusal to accept PAC money? If the complaint goes further, I guess we can expect her to accuse FEC attorneys of “cat-calling.” Or something. Via Washington Examiner. Two political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday. The cash transfers from the PACs — overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat’s chief of staff — run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of “dark money” in politics. Chakrabarti’s companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose...

You might have missed Nancy Pelosi’s bizarre clapping during the State of the Union last week if you watched it this way: Who did this??? BAHAHAHA 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/D9F7YdbFXK — Trinity Beach (@trinitybeach333) February 6, 2019 But although Pelosi insists that her clapping was “sincere,” her daughter thought otherwise: #waybackwednesday – oh yes that clap took me back to the teen years. She knows. And she knows that you know. And frankly she’s disappointed that you thought this would work. But here’s a clap. #youtriedit pic.twitter.com/vUCX2uAUvv — Christine Pelosi (@sfpelosi) February 6, 2019 Via Daily Mail.

OMG! How will President Trump be able to deliver his State Of The Union speech next week without the presence of John Lewis and Hank Johnson…said no rational person, ever. But Tammy’s tweet says it best: Black unemployment at historic low. Wages increasing for everyone. "John Lewis, Hank Johnson To Boycott Trump’s State Of The Union" https://t.co/6kDostJZdT pic.twitter.com/LhReb6EW7N — Tammy Bruce (@HeyTammyBruce) February 1, 2019 Via Daily Caller.

Obama also meddled in the Israeli election in 2016, sending our taxpayer money to try to oust Netanyahu. Maybe Obama and Kerry can send James Taylor back to Paris to sing “You’ve Got a Friend” again. Via American Mirror. Democrats are okay with foreign meddling in elections when they do it. As France devolves into what some are saying could be a civil war in the streets of Paris, the French should recall who wanted them to elect Emmanuel Marcon in the first place: former U.S. president Barack Obama…. Here's why Obama thinks Macron should be France's next president. pic.twitter.com/H9vXiXgY6F — AJ+ (@ajplus) May 7, 2017

Reality check for Alexandria: Most voters stayed home on Election Day, when only 13% of registered Democrats turned out to vote in her district. There are 214,750 active registered Democratic voters in the district. Only 27,744 voted, and she won by more than 4,000 votes. Yes, a Great Moment in History: Just like the passing of the Civil Rights Act. And the Moon Landing! Via Free Beacon. Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Friday compared her 2018 election victory to American accomplishments such as the moon landing and the establishment of civil rights. During a press conference meant to publicize her support of a Green New Deal, a nebulous government spending plan promoting ideas backed by lawmakers like Sen. Bernie...

Mika and Schmoe, er, Joe, “titans of journalism.” Yeah, no. Via CNS. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were quick to mock President Trump and Fox News after the midterms about the migrant caravan swarming to the U.S.-Mexico border, sarcastically remarking on Morning Joe that the story was overblown, had no legs, and was essentially an election stunt. However, there are 7,000-plus migrants now in Tijuana and Mexicali and more than 40 people attempted to breach a hole in the border fence yesterday and another 42 migrants were caught and arrested on U.S. soil…. It’s unlikely that MSNBC’s Mika and Joe will retract their doltish mockery of the caravan story. For the record, here is what these titans of journalism...

And another “gem” from an incoherent, er, the “greatest orator of our generation:” “We could have electricity and smartphones and all that stuff which would buy us probably another 20, 30 years for that technological breakthrough that’s necessary,”…. The reason we don’t do it is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism, mommy issues.” “Mommy issues” – said the man whose father abandoned him, and whose mother dragged him around to Third-World countries before dumping him on his grandparents. Via American Mirror. Former President Barack Obama used a disgusting term on Monday when discussing officials who do not cower to his demands. While speaking at the Obama Foundation in Chicago, the former president complained about the...

Occupying Nancy Pelosi’s office for “climate change” ? Ocasio-Cortez is going to have a rude awakening if she thinks stunts like this are going to win her friends in the House of Representatives. And if she really wants to do something about climate change, why doesn’t she get her little posse to join the two week fast in New Jersey? Just a suggestion. Via Daily Caller. A group of young environmental activists occupied House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s office with a list of demands, including one that Democrats support what they’re calling a “Green New Deal.” Activists began their “sit in” at Pelosi’s Capitol Hill office on Tuesday morning, wearing matching t-shirts and holding yellow signs with slogans such as,...

Which “values” are you referring to, Barack? The time you lied to us with the infamous “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” ? Maybe when you gave Iran $150B in cash? Or maybe the “values” of your speechwriters, reminiscing about their time working for you? Obama’s West Wing frat house. Aide tells how all-white speech team called each other ‘bro’, drank, exploited their jobs to sleep with women, made d*** jokes – and president deployed the f-bomb Via Daily Caller. Former President Barack Obama had some barely veiled criticism for President Trump at a Monday talk in San Diego, implying that American values “are not being upheld.”…. Obama added, “Our democracy, just like any organization, can’t...

If Barack Obama wants to do something positive, he should stop encouraging traumatized teens to spew their rage and confusion on the national stage. Via Washington Examiner. Former President Barack Obama talked about his future plans for his post-presidency life at a conference Sunday in Japan, addressing how he might shape “a million” new, young leaders in his mold. The wide-ranging discussion repeatedly touched on the Obama Foundation’s efforts to engage the digital space to help young people in the U.S. and across the world get connected. “If I could do that effectively, then — you know — I would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas,” Obama said. “Or, the next...

Remember when John Kerry smeared Vietnam veterans with outrageous lies during Congressional testimony, accusing our soldiers of committing daily “atrocities” ? I do. He is a craven, lying menace. And now it is reported that he wants to run for president in 2020. Meanwhile, he is undermining the Trump Administration’s efforts to bring peace to the Middle East. If this is not an example of violating the Logan Act, then I don’t know what is. Via Middle East Monitor. Former US Secretary of State John Kerry told close associate of Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas not to yield to US President Donald Trump’s demands during peace negotiations, Hebrew newspaper Ma’ariv has revealed. According to the report, Kerry met Hussein...

Wait, isn’t it “racist” and “anti-immigration” to demand identification checks, and twelve-foot high walls to hold back the “unwashed masses” ? And, aren’t we supposed to ban all guns? Just asking… Via American Mirror. Even if an adoring member of the unwashed masses wanted to get close to a Hollywood A-lister, they couldn’t, as elite celebrities were protected by walls, heavily-armed police and even military vehicles near the Golden Globes venue on Sunday. Photos tweeted by Margaret Carrero show heavy security outside the Beverly Hilton. One photo shows a massive wall, approximately 12 feet high, surrounding the venue. If that wasn’t a deterrent enough, the road was blocked by heavily armed police…. Poor, oppressed celebrities had to wait a long...

After everything we’ve been through, in my humble opinion, too little too late. Besides, Bannon’s not dumb, he knew exactly what he was saying and with whom he was speaking. With so much at stake, there are no excuses. I have defended him many times, publicly and privately. No more. His real concern? Probably a backlash across the board he somehow didn’t anticipate, and the possibility of being booted off the Breitbart board. I’m curious to see what you think… Via Fox News. Former Trump political strategist Steve Bannon on Sunday expressed “regret” for unflattering comments attributed to him in the recently released Trump White House tell-all “Fire and Fury,” saying he should have responded sooner and that he continues...
