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...

Last week, Liz Cheney schooled Ocasio-Cortez after she absurdly compared border detention centers with concentration camps, and little Sandy fired back, suggesting that Cheney had “co-opted the language of the oppressor” by using the term “extermination camps” (‘Sandy’ seems clearly ignorant of Elie Wiesel’s own reference to Auschwitz as an extermination camp.) Also @Liz_Cheney, the fact that you employed the horrifying word “exterminated” here (co-opting the language of the oppressor) tells us that it’s *you* that needs to brush up on your reading. Hope you enjoy defending concentration camps. I won’t back down fighting against them. https://t.co/OOfrrfa1Ew — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) June 18, 2019 But now, the entire controversy is the fault of Liz Cheney and the “shrieking Republicans” ?...

The AP did not explain why the “native Spanish” line was scrubbed. It’s likely, however, all the flaming they received on social media for falling for the myth that the Irish/Welsh Robert Francis is Hispanic probably embarrassed them. Or maybe someone made them read this Daily Beast article, “Beto Tries to Trick Hispanics Into Thinking He’s One of Them.” But they are clearly in love with the guy, and remember: “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.” Or something. But at least we’re getting a sense of just how dumb the Democratic primary season is really going to be. Via Daily Caller. The Associated Press appeared to stealth edit an article Sunday about a rally for Democratic presidential hopeful...

Seven months ago, John Brennan was oh-so-sure that President Trump “colluded” with Russia: Brennan: Trump’s Claim of No Russian Collusion Is ‘Hogwash’ Ex-CIA Director: Trump Was ‘Nothing Short of Treasonous’ at Helsinki Summit And two weeks ago: Brennan Predicts Mueller Report, More Indictments On Friday: “I Don’t Have Inside Knowledge” Nice to see him now with egg on his face. And we can all be relieved not to hear his “hogwash” any more. Via Daily Caller. Former CIA Director John Brennan said Monday morning that he was “relieved” by the Attorney General’s summary of the Mueller report, admitting the findings presented less than he anticipated in terms of criminal activity. “Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but...

Yes, Sandy, please continue to blame “sexism, racism, bigotry…and Fox News” for your unpopularity, which apparently, in your little bubble, has nothing to do with your involvement in killing the Amazon deal, together with 25K NYC jobs. Via Free Beacon. New York Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Monday shared a tweet blaming her low favorability numbers in a newly released poll on bigotry and Fox News. A Siena College poll of New York State voters found that Ocasio-Cortez’s favorability is underwater, with 31 percent viewing her favorably and 44 percent viewing her unfavorably. Those results mirror national polling from Gallup and Fox News, which found that Ocasio-Cortez has a net approval rating of -10 and -13 points, respectively. Ocasio-Cortez notably...

The “Diaspora Coalition” students at Sarah Lawrence College are also demanding, among a laundry list of freebies: unlimited access to therapy sessions. Well, access to fabric softener and unlimited therapy sessions are basic human rights! Right? They are also demanding the college fire a professor,. Sam Abrams, for his “sin” of calling for ideological diversity in a NYT Op-Ed column. Via Daily Caller. A group of students at Sarah Lawrence College released a set of demands Monday, including free housing and food for students, to amend for alleged “injustices imposed on people of color.” Members of the “Diaspora Coalition” presented the list of demands to President Cristle Collins Judd during a two-day sit-in at her office and accused the college...

Yes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has quickly become a legend…in her own mind. So here’s a little reality check for her: As reported by the New York Post, more than 80% of eligible voters stayed home on Election Day, and only about 13 percent of registered Democrats turned out to vote in her district; out of all active registered Democratic voters in the district — 214,750 — only 27,744 voted, and Ocasio-Cortez won by more than 4,000 votes. Sounds like an underwhelming victory. Via American Mirror. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez genuinely believes her election victory in arguably the most liberal district in America makes her story comparable to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr…. The conversation began when host Briahna Gray asked about the...
