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...

Falwell’s comment was not stated during CPAC; it was stated in 2015, in reference to the radical Islamic terrorist attack in San Bernadino, California. But that’s ok, because, you know, like, um, you don’t have to be, you know, precisely, factually, and semantically correct. Via Breitbart. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attacked Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. with false information Tuesday. “‘I always thought that if more good people had concealed carry permits, then we could end these Muslims before they [unintelligible].’ This was just this weekend at CPAC, the conference attended by the President and members, to 1000s. Where’s the resolution against Islamophobia?” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said, retweeting a video of Jerry Falwell Jr. from an activist…. The clip is...

Looks like Hillary still “don’t feel in no ways tired,” as she pandered to the crowd at the Martin and Coretta King Unity Breakfast in Selma. Hillary's occasional Southern accent made a well-timed return today in Selma, Ala., where she spoke at a "Bloody Sunday" anniversary event pic.twitter.com/qQsptMLhVZ — Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) March 3, 2019 And she shouted at the crowd that “we are living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy.” Well, yes, we are…when the anti-Trump Swamp embedded in our government think it’s a swell idea to undermine the election of our duly-elected POTUS, because they still can’t come to terms with the outcome of 2016. Via Hot Air. Sunday marked the 54th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday.”.A day...

Last year, Minneapolis Jewish Democrats met with Ilhan Omar to discuss their concerns over her support of terrorist group Hamas and her vicious anti-Israel rhetoric. Well, great job, Minnesota Dems. Omar is now laughing at you…and laughing all the way to the bank. The Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) California Political Action Committee (PAC) revved its fundraising machine for Omar when she was running for Congress last year. And this new fundraising link now asks to “stand with Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to fight hatred and to reclaim our democracy.” But apparently not democracy for Somali girls, as Omar rejected Muslim reform-driven efforts against gender discrimination and female genital mutilation (FGM) Via Free Beacon. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) is fundraising...

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. Democratic Georgia Reps. John Lewis and Hank Johnson are planning to boycott President Donald Trump’s scheduled State of the Union speech, currently scheduled to take place Feb. 5. Johnson and Lewis both confirmed to the Atlanta Journal Constitution that they will not attend the speech. Lewis also boycotted Trump’s State of the...

So shocking that CNN has abandoned their ethics and journalistic standards…said no one, ever. Kudos to Media Research Center for catching this really shameless and misleading piece of, uh, “news”. Just when you think CNN and Jake Tapper could not possibly sink any lower. They really have become the Clown ‘News’ Network. Via NewsBusters. Reacting to word that the U.S. Supreme Court has approved the Trump administration’s ban on new transgender military recruits, CNN correspondent Jessica Dean ran a piece which deceptively edited a clip of Donald Trump from the 2016 campaign to make it appear he had made a general promise to support “LGBTQ” rights which he is now allegedly breaking. In fact, the clip of Trump in question...

Yesterday, newly-elected Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.-Liar) suddenly got around to apologizing for a 2012 anti-Israel tweet in which she used an anti-Semitic trope. This, after stating she had “no idea” why American Jews might be offended by her statement that Israel is “hypnotizing” the world. Well, whatever. Now, Omar really “stepped in it” again with this lying, disgusting tweet. And the backlash was so intense, that I fortunately took a screen shot this morning, because the tweet has now been deleted. And an apology? Probably by 2025. Via Fox News. Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., has apparently deleted an overnight tweet going after Covington Catholic students anew, after facing a social media backlash for her comments. Her tweet had...

Looks like poor Ocasio-Cortez didn’t get the memo: The DNC and many left-wing organizations have distanced themselves from the Women’s March over their hateful rhetoric and refusal to condemn Farrakhan’s vicious anti-Semitic, anti-gay and racist comments. And pointing a finger at the Trump Administration for “anti-Semitism” is idiotic. President Trump’s approval rating among Orthodox Jews is at 91.6%,

The Muslim first-year resident in medicine at the Cleveland Clinic was fired last week after violently anti-Semitic tweets surfaced, including one in which she bragged she will “purposely give Jews the wrong medications.” She is now asking for forgiveness from “the Jewish community.” Her apology runs with the typical faux-apology “This is not who I am” theme. Most likely her so-called “heartfelt sorrow” is due to having gotten caught tweeting her hate-filled rants. And also because the ACLJ is urging the State of Ohio to revoke her medical license. Addressing the issue of her medical license isn’t about revenge or even punishment– this individual was caught when feeling she could be most herself– on social media, writing opening, with no...

Apparently, Michelle Obama lives by her rule: “When they go low…we get mean, rude and bitter.” Via Daily Caller. Former first lady Michelle Obama appeared to cast fun at first lady Melania Trump again Tuesday on “The Tonight Show” over an exchange the two had on Inauguration Day when Trump handed Obama a baby blue Tiffany & Co. boxed gift…. “So there was that and the Tiffany’s box … it was just a lot,” Obama said, as she made a face in apparent attempt to take a swipe at Trump and the exchange the media deemed “one of the biggest mysteries of the Trump administration,” and one that “befuddled” the Obamas…. Eventually it emerged on The Ellen Degeneres Show that...

But aren’t these migrants seeking asylum because their lives are in danger? Does this mean their lives are worth $50,000 ? This is extortion. And chutzpah. Via Fox News. Two groups of Central American migrants marched to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana on Tuesday with a list of demands, with one group delivering an ultimatum to the Trump administration: either let them in the U.S. or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. Among other demands were that deportations be halted and that asylum seekers be processed faster and in greater numbers, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The first group of caravan members, which included about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11 a.m. Alfonso Guerreo...

Tree in Durham’s Memorial Park No decorating a Christmas tree or placing a Chanukah menorah on public land. But a “winter carnival,” and changing Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples’ Day are no problem? Ok, got it. Via Western Journal. The Durham, New Hampshire, Human Rights Commission has recommended that the town cease its annual Christmas tree lighting tradition on public land out of concern it promotes the Christian faith at the exclusion of others. The commission was established by the town council for the purpose of eliminating “prejudice and discrimination because of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, ancestry, place of birth, age, sex, sexual orientation, (and) gender identity,” among a multitude of other categories of people.

It is outrageous and disgusting to see how MSNBC has rewarded Sharpton with his own show. He has a long history of race-baiting and anti-Semitism; Google “Freddy’s Fashion Mart” to recall how his rhetoric incited the massacre of seven people. And Sharpton played a big role in the three-day Crown Heights anti-Semitic riots, in which several innocents were murdered. Looks like Morning Schmoe Joe Scarborough’s hatred for President Trump caused him to forget how, as a congressman, he had called out Sharpton for his racism and anti-Semitism. So now we have “Rev. Al,” who referred to Jews as “bloodsuckers” and “Jew-bastards,” weighing in on President Trump. Nice going, MSNBC. Via Twitchy. How is Joe Scarborough so bad at this? And...
