Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez apparently does not know the three “chambers,” er, branches of government are not the Presidency, Senate & House — Hint: it’s legislative (Congress), executive (POTUS), and judicial (the courts). She also does not seem to understand the difference between “word-slips” and plain ignorance. Via BizPac Review. For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,”...

A tip of the MAGA hat to all the clever tweeps who responded to Hillary’s sad lack of self-awareness. Via BizPac Review. Hillary Clinton doesn’t want voters to ask “what happened” on Wednesday. The twice failed Democratic presidential candidate couldn’t get out of her own way in a clueless tweet about the morning after midterm elections…. When you wake up Wednesday morning, will you know that you've done all you could have? There's still time to: – Talk to friends in swing districts: https://t.co/pocwA3C0bA– Make calls or texts: https://t.co/m43GBda4ez– Knock on doors near you: https://t.co/kTMxn9057m — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 5, 2018 Go to Wisconsin? https://t.co/3mM9kZQo6U — Susan of Texas (@SusanofTexas) November 5, 2018 “It ain’t over til it’s over”...

They also drink more…to make “The Sadz” go away when elections don’t go their way. Via NBC News. The midterm elections are turning out to be nearly as stressful as the 2016 presidential election — especially for Democrats. According to a poll conducted by YouGov and commissioned by the fitness site Daily Burn, Democrats are 50 percent more likely than Republicans to say they’re “eating their feelings” as a result of the current political climate. They’re also drinking more (a 2-to-1 ratio over their GOP counterparts). “I’m seeing some people so stressed at the moment they’re doing two, even three soul cycle classes at day,” Dr. Navya Mysore, a primary care doctor, tells NBC News BETTER. “Exercise is good for...

It was a toy gun, people…a toy gun. And, he’s four years old. Sheesh… Via Daily Wire. On Sunday, England’s Princess Kate, accompanied by her four-year-old son George and her three-year-old daughter Charlotte, was photographed with her children playing in the sun at the Beaufort Polo Club in Tetbury, Gloucestershire, while the children’s father, Prince William, was playing in the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy. That would seem innocent enough, but photographs of young Prince George elicited outrage for one reason: he was playing with a toy gun. ….Last November, George’s father William got a request list from George for Christmas that had only one item listed: a toy police car…. In opposition to George’s penchant for police paraphernalia, here...

Because…“it’s in our collective DNA.” Or something. Via American Mirror. Now we know why Hillary Clinton wasn’t able to campaign in Michigan and Wisconsin: She was forced to spend so much time looking more presentable to all those sexist American voters who only care about appearance! During a book event in Australia this week, the failed presidential candidate once again disparaged Americans, saying the double standard for male and female candidates put her at a disadvantage…. “In politics, men come in all sizes and shapes — all kinds of hairstyles or no hair at all, and it is not remarked upon,” she said, ignoring that Donald Trump’s hairstyle is perhaps the most ridiculed in the political world.

Today’s headlines blare: “Hillary Falls Down Twice in India.” Via American Mirror. But really, she “fell down” multiple times: twice on the stairs but also when she continued to whine about her election loss. And when she insulted those, ya know, “deplorable” Trump voters, who, according to her, “didn’t like black people getting rights.” Isn’t there anyone in Hillary’s inner circle who can stop her from continuing to make a fool of herself? Via WaPo.

What exactly is the point of carrying a concealed gun, if you are supposed to run away? Sounds like he is advocating for a good pair of Nikes. Is this what he instructs his deputies to do?

ICYMI, and, yes, you probably did miss it. But you did not miss much. Via Daily Caller. A documentary that aired Sunday on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” purporting to explain “Why Trump Won,” sounded more like a commercial for Hillary Clinton. Zakaria, narrating the video, implied that Donald Trump had no real policy proposals and that voters chose him over Hillary Clinton due to their resentment of “professionals.” “[Hillary Clinton] seemed to have the right ideas. At least she had ideas, actual policies beyond banning Muslims or building border walls. She wanted to raise taxes on the wealthy, she had a plan for the opioid epidemic devastating the working class. She said she wanted to retrain workers,” he said….

Gosh, I love the smell of Dems throwing up in the morning. Oh wait, maybe that did not come out quite right 🙂 Via Washington Examiner. ….With the one year anniversary of that night approaching rapidly, Esquire compiled an exhaustive Election Day timeline sourced from the accounts of campaign insiders….The result is highly insightful, providing more details that reveal just how intensely Clinton supporters and coastal journalists were caught off guard by her loss…. Anticipating a Clinton victory, New York magazine writer Rebecca Traister said there was “an electric current running through” her body upon waking up that morning. Zara Rahim, Clinton campaign national spokeswoman told Esquire that she was already planning her Instagram caption. “We were waiting for the...

Next, can we expect authors to sue anyone who writes a negative book review? Via Federalist. If we have such an overwhelming scientific “consensus” about the supposed threat of catastrophic man-made global warming—and about the political and economic solutions to it—then why do advocates have to sue scientists to prevent them from questioning it? That’s the question raised by a $10 million lawsuit lawsuit filed by Stanford engineering professor Mark Z. Jacobson accusing other scientists of defamation for critiquing his scientific work in favor of “renewal energy.” That’s not how science works. That’s not how any of this is supposed to work. Jacobson made a name for himself and became something of a media celebrity for publishing a study in...

Someone needs to sit down with Hillary and beg her to seek some serious psychotherapy, instead of trying to work out her anger and disappointment in public. Via Hollywood Reporter. During an appearance on ‘The Graham Norton Show,’ the former presidential candidate detailed her dilemma, and disappointment, with attending the swearing-in ceremony. Hillary Clinton tried to avoid attending President Donald Trump’s inauguration. “I really tried to get out of going,” the former presidential candidate revealed during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show Friday. After explaining that it’s “tradition” for former presidents and first ladies to attend a presidential inauguration to show “support” and “continuity of our government,” Clinton admitted that she and former president Bill Clinton hoped others wouldn’t...

When will Republicans grow a spine? He cites left-wing groups filing an ethics claim against him. Great, so now all it takes to disrupt an investigation and remove someone is to file a specious complaint. Sheesh. The GOP has to stand up to this nonsense.The moment these political thugs find a successful tactic or smell blood in the water, they’ll never stop. Like children, they need to learn being a bully does not work nor is it acceptable. And, of course, Paul Ryan allows this nonsense. Amazing. Via Fox News. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes has stepped down from his role leading his committee’s probe of Russia interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and possible surveillance of Trump associates...
