If Dems win big today, we will pause, and then we will resolve to work even harder for the 2020 election, to ensure that the amazing gains of the last two years will not be eliminated. If the GOP wins big today, expect hand-wringing, teeth-gnashing and tantrums. And a deluge of Liberal Tears. Via Daily Caller. The New York Times is changing a voting data graphic that many readers claim led them to falsely believe then-candidate Donald Trump would lose the 2016 presidential election in a landslide. The NYT is working to avoid triggering panic attacks among people who felt the election needle duped them into believing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would easily win. The needle supposedly created...

Army? Caravan? How about the “M” word? Fox News headline: Via Daily Caller. The Associated Press on Sunday changed a headline after a backlash from liberals furious at the AP for describing a caravan of illegal immigrants heading towards the United States as an “army of migrants.” “A ragged, growing army of migrants resumes march toward US,” read the original headline on the AP story. The AP later changed the headline to replace the word “army” with “caravan.” Though the AP has used the word “army” to refer to large groups of people besides migrants — including nurses and political activists — many on the political left criticized the wire service for its original headline. “This is not only incorrect,...

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? The hysteria around Supreme Court confirmation hearings is...

Gosh, I’ll really miss Twitter when rising sea levels drown all the internet cables. Or something. Via Daily Caller. A government-funded study predicts rising sea levels will likely submerge over 4,000 miles of internet cables and more than 1,000 data centers in the next 15 years. But even the study’s authors admit their results are based on the “most extreme” sea level rise scenario of 6 feet by the end of the century…. The study, by University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Oregon researchers, uses the “most extreme” scenario considered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)…. Of course, news headlines blared warnings the internet was in danger from man-made warming. “Rising seas could knock out the internet...

Interesting connection, as Alaska has the second highest suicide rate of all the states. And Alaska is also the warmest. Oh wait, Alaska is actually the coldest state. Never mind. Via NewsBusters. Watch out! Climate change is not only killing polar bears; it is killing humans. The liberals have discovered a new scare tactic to push their climate control agenda and now are saying that increase in temperature leads to increase in suicide. The Atlantic posted an article concerning this topic on July 23 claiming “unusually hot days have profound effects on mental health and human physiology.” This assertion was based on a report by Nature Climate Change, a monthly journal dedicated to writing on “underlying causes or impacts of...

Since calling us “Deplorables” didn’t work out so well for Hillary, and “Nazis” and “Hitler” are “sooo last week,” I guess “complicit in evil” does have a sort-of poetic ring to it. And quoting from Psalms in a desperate attempt to claim the moral high ground was, well, inspired. But memo to Cory Booker: It’s “Yea though *I* walk through the valley of the shadow of death,” not “Yea though *we* walk through the valley of the shadow of death.” You’re Welcome 🙂 Via Free Beacon.

How exactly is it a “national security threat” to revoke security clearance of someone who no longer works for the government, but now works as an analyst for CNN ? Finally taking away security clearance from him, as well as from John Brennan, who now works for MSNBC, James Comey and others who worked for Obama makes perfect sense. As Sarah Sanders noted yesterday: ….“They’ve politicized and in some cases monetized their public service and security clearances,” Sanders said during the daily press briefing. “Making baseless accusations of improper contact with Russia, or being influenced by Russia, against the president is extremely inappropriate and the fact that people with security clearances are making these baseless charges provides inappropriate legitimacy to...
