Ocasio-Cortez tweeted her approval of the Yemeni-American bodega boycott of the NY Post over their response to Omar’s “some people did something” 9/11 remarks: This is what real unity (& NYC solidarity) looks like. No, Sandy, this is what fascism looks like. She already played a big role in killing 25K Amazon jobs in NYC. So is she thrilled at the prospect of shutting down a NY paper, where more jobs would be lost? Via Pluralist. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Saturday backed a campaign by Yemeni American shop owners in New York City to boycott the New York Post. The freshman congresswoman hailed the “community” for the effort, which she compared to its 2017 protest of President Donald Trump’s...

Chuck Todd dedicated Sunday’s ‘Meet the Press’ to ‘Climate Crisis,’ and banned ‘Climate Deniers’ from the show, and Twitchy calls ol’ Chuck a “Bias Denier.” Exactly 🙂 HT Twitchy. Chuck Todd Covers ‘Climate Crisis’ For Entire Meet the Press Episode: We’re Not Giving Time to ‘Climate Deniers’ https://t.co/a2GMONWp8p pic.twitter.com/8VVBTCxVA0 — Mediaite (@Mediaite) December 30, 2018 This attitude by Chuck Todd is literally anti-science. In real science, there is no such thing as “settled science.” Scientific knowledge is always open to expansion, clarification, qualification, revision, and even question. See, e.g. the scientific history of Newton’s theories. https://t.co/14Kx5izc7i — Ken Gardner (@KenGardner11) December 30, 2018 "Settled science" means STFU which is exactly what .@chucktodd hosted Simply that.

So, when St. Lawrence University gave Senator Susan Collins an honorary degree last year in recognition of her lack of support for GOP attempts to repeal Obamacare, this “had nothing to do with partisan politics.” But now that Collins voted for Justice Kavanaugh, these academics want the honorary degree revoked, but this too has nothing to do with partisan politics? Ok, got it. Via CBS News. Alumni and faculty at the alma mater of Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, are calling on university officials to rescind an honorary degree awarded to her as punishment for voting to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh earlier this month. More than 1,800 alumni and dozens of faculty at St. Lawrence University are sending letters...

This is good news not only because it’s one of the greatest films of all time, but because there’s a growing ignorance about the Holocaust combined with a resurgent Jew-hatred among the American and worldwide left. Hopefully this film will again educate and enlighten another generation. Via Mashable. Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece Schindler’s List is turning 25 this December. To celebrate, Universal Pictures is adding to the film’s $225 million box office haul by returning a remastered version of the historical drama to big screens across the country. Schindler’s List tells the true story of Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), a German businessman whose efforts to employee Jews during the Holocaust is believed to have saved over 1,000 people from concentration camps,...

But President Trump is a fascist? Ok, got it. Via BizPac Review. The former spokesman for Hillary Clinton suggested the creation of an enemies list of sellout progressives to ban from “future Democratic administrations.”…. Progressives should keep a list of names of the sellouts at Yale and elsewhere who are right now trying to smooth a path for the overturning of Roe and gutting of the New Deal. They should be unwelcome in future Democratic administrations. — Brian Fallon (@brianefallon) July 13, 2018 You mean a blacklist? That sounds…not so progressive. https://t.co/fEfTBEvCOs — Christopher J. Scalia (@cjscalia) July 13, 2018 So you want to make retribution lists for academics who dissent from what should be the approved political agenda. Let...

Because…Free Speech! Or something. Via Washington Examiner. Valerie Plame Wilson is fundraising to buy a controlling share of Twitter so that she can ban President Trump from the social media platform…. But Wilson’s progress has been slow: She has raised almost $3,000 since the page was set up on Aug. 16, well short of her $1 billion target…. And yes, people on Twitter weighed in: There is a 'block' feature you know, but if you really feel threatened by President #Trump, just pull the covers over your head until 2024. — Burt Zerker (@BurtZerker) August 23, 2017 There's a word for ppl that want to shut down speech they don't agree with. Any guesses? Fascist. — Tracy (@ocdred) August 22,...

Because we don’t need no stinkin’ three branches of gubmint! Via Daily Caller. On Thursday morning, Supreme Court upheld an injunction on Obama’s 2014 Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents policy by a 4-4 split vote. The executive order would have granted work permits and legal status to millions of illegal immigrants living in the United States. “What was unaffected by today’s ruling, or lack of a ruling, is the enforcement priorities that we’ve put in place,” the president stated…. “We prioritize criminals, we prioritize gang-bangers, we prioritize folks who have just come in,” he explained. “What we don’t do is prioritize people who have been here a long time, who are otherwise law-abiding, who have...

Surprise. Via Free Beacon: Left-Wing Groups Claim Victory, Fundraise Off Trump Protests Left-wing groups that have received money from the federal government and the MacArthur Foundation celebrated the disruption of Donald Trump’s rally in Chicago and are using the clashes to raise more money. The progressive organizing group MoveOn.org, which boasts more than 8 million members nationwide, took partial credit for protests hours after a Trump rally was canceled in Chicago due to security concerns. Republicans who support Trump “should be on notice,” according to one MoveOn.org Political Action official. … MoveOn.org, which was initially formed in 1998 to organize liberal opposition to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton, receives financial support from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros gave $1.46...

This is outrageous, liberal cannibalism– a madness where a people turn on each other, creating an environment where everything you do or say can be construed as a crime or an attack. Liberalism is nothing more than fascist madness, and with this election we have a chance to expel it completely. Via Daily Caller. Following the example set by elite liberal universities, the U.S. State Department has begun cracking down on “microaggressions” in the workplace. According to a newsletter from State Department chief diversity officer John Robinson, employees who commit “microaggressions” may risk violating harassment laws in doing so. Robinson published the letter in the November edition of State Magazine with the title “The New Face of Exclusion: Microaggressions.” The...

Now if could just get Lois Lerner into one… Via USA Today The Rowan County, Ky., clerk who was jailed last week for failing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples was ordered released from jail Tuesday. U.S. District Judge David Bunning, who jailed Kim Davis for contempt of court Thursday, ordered her freed from jail, saying he was satisfied her deputies have complied with his order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex and straight couples. In a two-page order, Bunning ordered the U.S. Marshal Service to release her on the condition that she shall not “interfere in any way, directly or indirectly, with the efforts of her deputy clerks to issue marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples. If...

Very impressive how POTUS has improved over the past seven years: He’s a much better liar now… Via NewsBusters: ….Those of us who remember the first Obama presidential campaign may recall this telling interview Garrett conducted with Obama on another occasion, like today, when Obama’s answers turned out to be unsatisfactory…. Don’t think for a minute that Barack Obama has forgotten any of this. The intensity of his response betrays how he hasn’t.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) wants the Justice Dept. to prosecute everyone who disagrees with him on ‘climate change.’ Which is much less draconian than last year’s demand, by an assistant professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology, that all “climate change deniers’ should be incarcerated. Looks like Tammy’s 2001 book, The New Thought Police, is still remarkably relevant. Via Daily Caller: Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse is not a fan of anyone who disagrees with him about man-made global warming. And at an event hosted by environmentalists, he made it clear just how much he doesn’t like skeptics. “But, this vast denial apparatus that propagates the false doubt, that props up the phony science, that gets these yahoos who can’t survive …...
