It’s so hard to keep up with the Dems: from “illegal immigration is wrong,” to “they aren’t illegal, just undocumented,” to “there’s a crisis at the border” to “the so-called crisis is a manufactured one,” to “border walls are ineffective,” to “border walls are immoral,” and now this, from Pelosi: WATCH: Pelosi calls border wall a “luxury” our country “can’t afford.” pic.twitter.com/9SBuRfbNy0 — Amy (@RightHookUSA) January 10, 2019 We have “no money to secure our borders,” but here’s a list, courtesy of @CalebHull, of things we apparently do have money to spend on. My personal favs, because…zoos, artwork, Idaho caviar, rabbits getting Swedish massages. And who doesn’t love a good fruit costume? $1,000,000 on Zoo Poetry: “increasing environmental awareness” by...

Chuckles and Nan obviously copied their tweets from the same Dem talking points. But it would have been much more effective if they had included Tammy’s line: It’s ‘doom and gloom’ with the Shutdown, and we’re all scrambling for grubs and puddle water! 🙂 Note from Tammy: For politicians this remains a game, and the American people are an irritating side issue. For some reason, the shut down of the government is portrayed as the worst thing that could happen. Really? No one is working without pay, and there is a slight chance some may receive a delayed paycheck, but even that is unlikely. The howling by politicians as though the shutdown is the end of the world is nonsense,...

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...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez apparently does not know the three “chambers,” er, branches of government are not the Presidency, Senate & House — Hint: it’s legislative (Congress), executive (POTUS), and judicial (the courts). She also does not seem to understand the difference between “word-slips” and plain ignorance. Via BizPac Review. For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,”...

The CEO of the Democratic National Committee should consult with another Dem “financial genius,” Alexandria Ocsio-Cortez, who, when asked the same question, responded, “Just pay for it.” Via Daily Wire. Seema Nanda, CEO of the Democratic National Committee, was asked on Tuesday how the Democrats intend to pay for a multi-trillion dollar government-run single-payer health care system. She had no idea…. “There has been some analysis of, third-party analysis of a Medicare for all program, what it would be like, how much it might cost is a big issue,” the interviewer said. “It would be very expensive, so, if this is going to be a winning issue for Democrats in 2020, how do you answer the question of how are...

Hillary just pulled this latest charge out of her, um, hat. And if hearing all this whining from Hilz sounds like fun, you can catch the live Bill & Hill show in NYC this Spring. Yep, 2 tickets, Orchestra, Row E will set you back a mere $10,378. Or two balcony seats for only $136. Via American Mirror. The 2016 presidential election may have been 720 days ago, but America’s crazy ex-girlfriend STILL isn’t over it. During a Friday evening Q&A with Recode’s Kara Swisher, Hillary Clinton again attacked Russia for its alleged involvement in the election. But she leveled a stunning, evidence-free new charge: The Trump campaign stole voter data from her campaign and used it to reach “persuadable”...

Anyone who disagrees with her half-baked talking-points is insane? She sounds like a twelve-year-old. With apologies to twelve-year-olds, everywhere. Via Free Beacon. Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in a new interview her party couldn’t compromise with the “insane people” on the right holding the country “hostage.” Asked by Vanity Fair how she intended to balance her desire for rapid, progressive change with the need in Washington to make deals, Ocasio-Cortez said Democrats too often compromise even before getting to the table. “When you’re dealing with these insane people holding the country hostage on the right, you can’t go in with your end point. You have to go in with a strong position,” she said. “If they’re trying to end...

Now we know that Obama and Raul Castro discussed “climate change” over dinner in Havana. And nothing on the topic of the Castro brothers’ brutal and repressive regime, their history of executing Cuban political opponents and their continued denial of basic rights for the Cuban people? They did, however, talk about the “rising oceans.” But wasn’t the election of Barack Hussein Obama supposed to be the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal ? Via American Mirror. Nancy Pelosi thinks the seriousness with which China and Cuba are supposedly tackling “climate change” is just great…. During a speech last week at the University of San Francisco during the Global Climate Summit...

Obama is re-appearing, worried about his “legacy.” His biggest accomplishment in his eight-year presidency? More Americans now know how to spell “narcissism.” Via American Mirror. There were times during a Thursday rally Barack Obama couldn’t help but talk about himself, even though he was supposed to be talking about other people. There were other times he could barely talk at all. During the Cleveland rally for Rich Cordray and Betty Sutton, Obama repeatedly talked about himself, despite the candidates sitting behind him…. “I see you,” Obama started, pointing into the audience. “Let, let, let, let, let me just say these, these are friends of mine,” Obama said, stumbling over his words, “I admit I am biased.” Several times, Obama called...

Kamala Harris objects to using “hysterical” to describe the protesters at the Kavanaugh hearing. Agreed. Here are some much more accurate terms to describe their behavior: overwrought, overemotional, out of control, frenzied, frantic, wild, feverish, crazed Via BizPac Review. ….MSNBC’s Chris Hayes was interviewing Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing Tuesday, which was marred by chaos, and just as Harris was whining about protesters being called hysterical, the network ran footage of the protesters… acting hysterical. Hayes played a clip of from the opening remarks of Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., where he referenced the chaos that occurred when the hearing opened. “What’s the hysteria coming from? The hysteria around Supreme Court confirmation hearings is...

And he thinks there is “something fundamentally immoral and wrong” about a nation where there are some very wealthy people. Because…redistribution of wealth! However, since the median income of the typical Vermont family is approximately $51,000, and Bernie made $1.7M on his socialist revolution books, and he owns three homes, will there be some sort of redistribution of his wealth? Via Free Beacon. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) complained Wednesday the media “makes a bigger deal” than it should about the modern debate between socialism and capitalism. Appearing on “CBS This Morning” following his Democratic primary victory in Vermont, Sanders was asked by co-host John Dickerson about the appeal of democratic socialism to younger party members. Young democratic socialists like...

This is the new voice of the Democrat Party. Watch the video…and let that sink in. Via Free Beacon. Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday knocked a couple key members of her own party, Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Bob Menendez (N.J.), saying they don’t represent the “working-class champion.” She also wrongly identified Menendez as being from Florida before being corrected by her interviewer. The self-described democratic socialist took aim at Manchin and Menendez during an appearance on the podcast “Pod Save America,” which is hosted by former Obama administration staff members…. Since Ocasio-Cortez defeated incumbent Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.) in the Democratic primary for New York’s 14th Congressional District, she has become a thorn in the paw of...

Politico actually published this piece of meaningless psychobabble. Via Washington Times. White House senior adviser Stephen Miller’s third grade classmate penned an op-ed for Politico, writing how President Trump’s loyal staffer “was obsessed with tape and glue.” In the Politico op-ed, John Muller, who sat next to Miller in the third grade, described in detail how the senior adviser once played with glue and preferred other classmates not touch his belongings. Muller writes in Politico: He especially was obsessed with tape and glue. Along the midpoint of our desk, Stephen laid down a piece of white masking tape, explaining that it marked the boundary of our sides and that I was not to cross it. The formality of this struck...

Oops. Via Washington Examiner. He couldn’t wear a regular wristwatch. It had to be a Rolex. That’s just a little awkward for Brian Flynn. The top Democrat running in New York’s 19th Congressional District took out a full page ad in the Albany Times Union slamming the “billionaires” and the “corporations” who “have rigged the system against us.” It is a pretty typical political ad. He looks stern with his arms crossed and his sleeves rolled up on his blue dress shirt — literally a blue collar! And then, there’s the $8,950 timepiece on his wrist. Connoisseurs looking at his social media will recognize the watch as the Rolex GMT Master-II. The choice of fighter pilots and frat boys with...

Because…“it’s in our collective DNA.” Or something. Via American Mirror. Now we know why Hillary Clinton wasn’t able to campaign in Michigan and Wisconsin: She was forced to spend so much time looking more presentable to all those sexist American voters who only care about appearance! During a book event in Australia this week, the failed presidential candidate once again disparaged Americans, saying the double standard for male and female candidates put her at a disadvantage…. “In politics, men come in all sizes and shapes — all kinds of hairstyles or no hair at all, and it is not remarked upon,” she said, ignoring that Donald Trump’s hairstyle is perhaps the most ridiculed in the political world.
