Yeah, no. This is disgusting and obscene, but unfortunately what we’ve come to expect from the Trump-haters. Via Daily Wire. On Sunday, Benjamin Wittes,a journalist who is the Co-Director of the Harvard Law School – Brookings Project on Law and Security, chief editor of the Lawfare blog and a good pal of former FBI director James Comey, issued a lengthy Twitter thread in which he compared President Trump’s firing of various officials and targeting others as reminiscent of the Nazis murdering people in the Holocaust…. Wittes comparison to the Holocaust was obviously cribbing from the famous poem by Martin Niemöller, a prominent Lutheran pastor in Germany who spoke out against Adolf Hitler and spent 1938-1945 in Nazi concentration camps. His...

If you want to serve Queen Hillary something, it better be Chardonnay, not legal papers for a $50M lawsuit. Via NY Post. Hillary Clinton has now twice snubbed a process server attempting to deliver the defamation lawsuit filed against her by Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, according to Gabbard’s attorney. “I find it rather unbelievable that Hillary Clinton is so intimidated by Tulsi Gabbard that she won’t accept service of process,” the congresswoman’s attorney, Brian Dunne, told The Post. “But I guess here we are.”….
Joy Behar Asks Holocaust Survivor About Migrants Detained At U.S. Border. She Does Not Get The Answer She Wantedby Shifra on January 28, 2020
Yesterday was Holocaust Memorial Day, and ‘The View’ hosted Holocaust survivors Millie and Miklh Baran and their two daughters. The segment began with an impassioned message from Whoopi Goldberg, who spoke against Holocaust denial. (And props to Whoopi for pronouncing Miklh’s name correctly). But then, Joyless Behar jumped in with her question, inviting Millie to comment on the current situation at the U.S.-Mexico border. Looks like she was hoping for a Trump-bashing moment, because she can never give her Trump Derangement Syndrome a rest. Via Daily Caller. “The View” host Joy Behar asked Holocaust survivor Millie Baran to weigh in Monday on the migrants being denied entry at the U.S.-Mexico border, and she didn’t get the answer she expected. In...

This is now the face of the Democrat party: The Simon Weisenthal Center has named Tlaib and her pal Ilhan Omar “unabashed anti-Semites.” But these anti-Israel Jew-haters spew their venom, and ‘crickets’ from other Dems. Via BPR. Jews around the globe are expressing their anger over anti-Semite Rep. Rashid Tlaib’s insulting Hanukkah message that she sent to a radical leftist group called If Not Now (INN). The group publicly shared the offensive video on Twitter…. Tlaib filmed her toothy, grinning Hanukkah greeting in her Congressional office in Washington, D.C., in front of a picture on her wall of the Dome of the Rock mosque built on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem…. The reference to “Falastine” is puzzling as it is...

Yes, Fredo’s brother, er, NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo, just stated that the cornerstones of NY State are “diversity, tolerance and inclusion.” But in 2014, he stated that anyone who is pro-traditional marriage, pro-life or pro-guns –has “no place in the state of New York“. Because… “diversity, tolerance and inclusion.” ? Ok, got it. Via NY Post. So much for reaching across the aisle. Gov. Cuomo just vetoed a bill that would have allowed all federal judges to officiate at weddings in New York — saying he can’t stomach the idea that even some of the jurists might be President Trump appointees. “I cannot in good conscience support legislation that would authorize such actions by federal judges who are appointed by...

Uh oh, looks like Nancy ‘heartbroken, prayerful’ Pelosi was not in such a ‘somber’ mood when, after calling for articles of impeachment against President Trump, journalist James Rosen asked a perfectly legitimate question. Nancy says she prays for the president “all the time.” We pray for you, too, Nancy…to retire and just go away. Via The Hill. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday lashed out at a Capitol Hill reporter who had questioned whether she “hated” President Trump following her decision to advance the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry. “I don’t hate anybody. I was raised in a Catholic house, we don’t hate anybody — not anybody in the world. So don’t you accuse me of any [hate],” Pelosi said during her...

This bitter, angry law prof apparently lives by Michelle Obama’s “When they go low, we go…”despicably lower…Or something. Via Washington Examiner. President Trump’s campaign blasted Stanford law professor Pamela Karlan for mentioning 13-year-old Barron Trump while she attacked his father during a hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee. “Only in the minds of crazed liberals is it funny to drag a 13-year-old child into the impeachment nonsense,” Kayleigh McEnany, a Trump campaign spokesperson, said in a statement on Wednesday. “Pamela Karlan thought she was being clever and going for laughs, but she instead reinforced for all Americans that Democrats have no boundaries when it comes to their hatred of everything related to President Trump. Hunter Biden is supposedly...

The NY Post cover says it all. Perfectly. Via Daily Wire. The New York Post released its Wednesday cover late on Tuesday night mocking Democratic House leaders ahead of their public impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump over his July 25 phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky…. Columnist Michael Goodwin writes that Schiff “takes his magic act public Wednesday as the impeachment hearings burst out of a Capitol Hill dungeon and onto television. Donald Trump’s presidency and the 2020 election likely hang on whether Schiff’s sleight of hand can survive the bright lights of public exposure and cross-examination.” “Operating in darkness, where he controlled the witness list and leaked snippets of testimony that the Dems’ media echo chamber turned...

Please keep going, Trump-haters: Trump Derangement Syndrome Will Guarantee The President’s Re-Election Via Twitchy. Trump can’t win. Seriously. The media are looking for any and every reason to trash the man regardless of what he says, even taking advantage of the passing of Elijah Cummings to attempt a nasty dunk on the president … For tweeting out condolences. My warmest condolences to the family and many friends of Congressman Elijah Cummings. I got to see first hand the strength, passion and wisdom of this highly respected political leader. His work and voice on so many fronts will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 17, 2019 Trump on 7/27: "Cumming[s] District is a...

“New policy” on “security,” Rep. Adam Chicken-Schiff ? Via Breitbart. Staff for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) refused to meet with a group of ten senior citizens opposed to the impeachment of President Donald Trump at his district office in Burbank on Thursday, citing a “new policy” on “security.”…. After holding a demonstration on the sidewalk in front of the office building housing Schiff’s office, the group went inside and attempted to meet with Schiff’s staff. Finding the door locked, they rang the doorbell. They were told that they could leave comments for the congressman on cards in the hallway, but that a “new policy” prevented staff from venturing out into the hallway, or inviting the demonstrators inside Schiff’s office, for...

Apparently, according to the Democrats, any mention of the Bidens’ involvement in the Ukrainian gas company while Joe was VP is a “conspiracy theory.” And an attempt at a “smear campaign.” But when President Trump wakes up in the morning…it’s an impeachable offense. Via Fox News. The deputy manager of Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign slammed The New York Times on Wednesday in a letter to the newspaper’s executive editor — blasting the paper’s coverage of the former vice president’s involvement in Ukraine. The letter, written by Kate Bedingfield to Dean Baquet, criticizes the paper for “giving top billing” to “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer in a Wednesday op-ed titled, “What Hunter Biden Did Was Legal – That’s the Problem,”...

Wasn’t it Michelle Obama who once said: “When they go low…we try to take someone’s else trademark” ? Via Fox News. Barack and Michelle Obama have been accused of “deplorable behavior” by a Los Angeles entertainment attorney for filing a “meritless petition” amid a trademark dispute over the name of their company, Higher Ground Productions. The legal team representing the Obamas filed a petition to cancel the trademark of an e-book publishing company called Higher Ground Enterprises, much to the chagrin of the publishing company. “This is really deplorable behavior. I hope that the Obamas realize that these actions are not consistent with the values they preach and that they instruct their attorneys to immediately dismiss the petition,” attorney Larry...

And here’s another flashback: Remember when the Obama Administration temporarily banned all U.S. –based flights to Israel because of “security concerns,” and Hamas declared it a big “victory” ? So maybe Joe Biden should have just sat this one out, rather than jumping in to comment on Israel’s decision to bar Omar and Tlaib from entering Israel on their “Palestine” trip, sponsored by the anti-Semitic, pro-terror Miftah group. Via Hot Air. In the midst of the hot takes offered up by the 2020 Democrat candidates when the two anti-Semitic U.S. congresswomen were denied entry into Israel, the guy at the front of the pack was quickly reminded that former President Obama’s administration made a similar decision. Joe Biden posted a...

Nice going, Mayor Bill “Worst-Mayor-Ever-In-The-History-of-NYC” de Blasio, using your personal security detail from the NYPD to move your daughter’s furniture back to Gracie Mansion. Because apparently, rules are for the ‘Little People,’ not for the Elite. Via NYDN. City conflict of interest rules clearly bar Mayor de Blasio and his family from ordering police detectives to help move Chiara de Blasio out of an apartment in Brooklyn, ethics experts told the Daily News. City law says it is a violation of the city charter “for any public servant to use City letterhead, personnel, equipment, resources, or supplies for any non-City purpose.” A former high-ranking official with the city Conflicts of Interest board batted down the excuse de Blasio spokeswoman Freddi...

His “rationale” for why Israel should allow him to return? He compares himself to Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier in the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) who was kidnapped by Hamas and held for five years until being released in 2011 in a trade of over 1,000 Arab security prisoners. Wow, this guy is not exactly “the brightest bulb in the chandelier,” but his chutzpah is monumental. Via Times of Israel. An Israeli citizen captured in Syria while fighting with the Islamic State terror group asked to return home this week, telling news outlet Al Arabiyathat he wants Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to repatriate him. In an interview with the network broadcast Wednesday, Sayyaf Sharif Daoud beseeched the premier to work...
