Poor Liz can’t figure out why her fundraising, and her standing in the polls, are falling. Let’s help her out, shall we? Maybe it’s because we don’t much like liars, er, people who take liberties with the truth. (Warren Apologizes To Cherokee Nation For DNA Test, Records Show Elizabeth Warren Lied About Being Fired For Being ‘Visibly Pregnant’, Elizabeth Warren Lies About Her Son Attending Two Different Private Schools) Or maybe because Warren’s “I have a plan for that!” schtick is really a “I have a bad plan for everything.” Or maybe it’s because she reminds us of that very annoying, scolding elementary school teacher who drove us crazy for the entire school year (with apologies to teachers, everywhere).

Yes, the Dems really think we are dumb enough to fall for the “black dress code equals somber mood” schtick. But what they don’t understand is that black was indeed very appropriate, but for another reason: Today is the beginning of the political death throes of a whole bunch of them. RIP, Democrat Party. Via PJ Media. Desperate to give the false impression that impeachment isn’t what Democrats have always wanted since the moment Trump was elected, House Democrats have received strict orders on how to handle themselves as the impeachment vote proceeds. Axios reports that “House Democratic leaders told caucus members not to cheer or applaud when today’s impeachment vote totals are announced.” One Democrat from a Trump district...

Keep going, Dems, you always overplay your hand. Or, as some Deplorables, er, constituents blasted Democratic Rep. Abigail Spanberger: This is incredible BS! Via Daily Mail. ….A Quinnipiac University poll that was released Tuesday showed 51 percent of registered voters were against impeachment, while 45 percent of registered voters supported it. ‘With Washington in turmoil and House Democrats poised to vote on impeaching the president for abuse of power and ostruction of Congress, American voters signal they are slightly more inclined not to impeach than to impeach,’ said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy in a statement…. The Quinnipiac poll comes on the heels of three surveys from Firehouse Strategies out of pivotal swing states Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan. Axios...

If you are wondering how it is possible to report on middle-class healthcare skyrocketing costs from 2008 to 2018, without bothering to mention Obamacare as a possible factor, read last week’s ABC report. Wasn’t Obamacare supposed to lower costs? Wasn’t it named the *Affordable* Care Act? And now, the Dems are trying to foist an even more horrible scheme on us, with millions losing their private health insurance, and dumping everyone into Medicare For All, or, as it should be called, Healthcare For None. HT Twitchy. In 2008, middle-class workers spent about 7.8% of household income on premiums and deductibles. By 2018, that figure had climbed to 11.5%. https://t.co/u1iaCkAfoA — ABC News (@ABC) November 21, 2019 Gee, what happened between...

As reported in WaPo, Adam Schiff once dreamed of becoming a screenwriter: When Adam Schiff was a young assistant U.S. attorney living in Los Angeles, he did what everyone does when they move to Hollywood. He wrote a screenplay. He spent hours at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, reading the scripts for “Silence of the Lambs” and “Witness” in the library. (it was the ’90s). He leaned on his courtroom experience, thinking back on snippets of dialogue during trials as he typed out a crime thriller. The prosecutor was the hero, naturally. He called it “Minotaur,” and, if you ask Schiff, it was pretty good…. But his latest “work,” the Impeachment Show, is fast becoming a dud....

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...

When you’ve lost the Washington Post… As Tammy writes in her latest Washington Times column, The case of the so-called Ukraine whistleblower scandal: ….These dramas are birthed by an establishment deciding it’s too dangerous to have Donald Trump be in charge of all their secrets, believing the ends of removing him justifies the means. In other words, they are going to have to burn down the village in order to save it. We aren’t going to let that happen. Via Daily Caller. The Washington Post gave House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff four pinocchios over his claim that neither he nor his staff had spoken to the whistleblower before he filed his complaint regarding a phone call between President Donald...

On the Tucker Carlson Show last month, Peter Thiel, when asked about the 2020 Democrat candidates, said he is “most scared by Liz Warren.” Thiel is right, and here’s why: Via WSJ. Elizabeth Warren’s favorite image for businesses is that they “suck” profits out of American society like vampires. Her latest targets are private-equity firms that invest in struggling companies, often replace management and bet on a turnaround. She wants to put them out of business. “The Stop Wall Street Looting Act,” as Ms. Warren calls her new bill, would impose new taxes, legal liabilities and regulations that would make it more costly and risky for investors to try to revive businesses. It would also effectively rewrite the bankruptcy code....

Last week, Elizabeth Warren officially announced her 2020 presidential bid. And during her speech, two supporters standing behind her were seen walking out.

Ouch! That’s gonna leave a burn! Maybe Avenatti can get some ice from “rapist,” er, “sex-trafficker,” er, “groper,” er, “drunk”, er, “punch-spiker,” er,”ice-thrower” Judge Kavanaugh. Via Daily Caller. The Senate Judiciary Committee’s chief counsel for nominations on Tuesday issued a quick, blistering response to Julie Swetnick attorney Michael Avenatti’s plea to “respond to our requests.” “Stop playing games,” Avenatti wrote in the Tuesday email to Mike Davis. “If you are the Chief Counsel, then you need to do your job. Please respond to our requests.” To which Davis responded: “We have already reviewed your client’s allegations. We focus on credible allegations. Please stop emailing me.”….

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?

We pay for that dump to continue operating, it’s time we stop. We can use that money to pay for the border wall, and removing them from NY means we will gain some prime NY real estate. I think NY could use some affordable housing or even another park. Either will improve lives more than what that collection of malcontents does.
