Elizabeth Warren’s Earth Day plea: Elect Dems so things like the BP spill won’t happen again (Um…)

Another Earth Day is upon us, which means a fresh round of sanctimonious “fossil fuels and capitalism are killing the planet” BS from rich liberals tweeting on iPhones from their private jets en route to one of their many mansions. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is among Dems all over the Earth Day lectures.

Check out how Dances with Identity Fraud is putting an Earth Day spin on the BP spill and trying to make it about Trump:

That’s not the touting of liberal regulatory prowess Warren thinks it is. When the BP spill happened, the Democrats already had full control of Congress AND the White House for nearly a year-and-a-half. But sure, let’s blame the guy who didn’t even take office until almost seven years later.

Also, the Animas River spill didn’t happen under Trump and the Republicans — it happened during the regulation-happy EPA under Obama. Take your “shilling for the regulatory genius of the bloated bureaucracy” shtick back to the teepee, Fauxcahontas.

On a related note, this cracked me up this morning: EPA chief Scott Pruitt’s Earth Day observance might be enough to hospitalize triggered liberals:

Pass the smelling salts, Leo!

Just for fun, here’s a portion of something I wrote for Earth Day a few years ago. I think it still holds up:

Why am I so grumpy about Earth Day yet again this year? Because I don’t like being preached to about what I should be doing, especially when I already do it. For starters, in my house, we celebrate Earth Day every day, like no doubt many of you do. How so? We don’t leave lights on in rooms that nobody is in. We keep the thermostat fairly low (mostly because I’m usually too hot). We carpool when possible. We don’t waste gas. We pick up trash when we’re out walking. We volunteer to clean up the river walk, and we plant trees because we like trees — not because we’ve fooled ourselves into believing that planting trees is our noble contribution towards helping make Al Gore’s mansions carbon-neutral.

As such, I tend to get a little put off when being preached to by mega-hypocrites who swim in their own heated pools, travel in private jets, play sports under bright lights at night, heat cavernous homes they’re not even living in for months at a time, trash national monuments when celebrating politicians who are going to save the environment, and ride in limo caravans to speeches where they tell the rest of us how our pickup trucks, lawn mowers, hamburgers and 75-watt light bulbs are killing the planet. I mean… F**K. YOU.

Here’s another reason I won’t participate in Earth Day celebrations: I refuse to acknowledge, symbolically or otherwise, that electricity and fuel — and the generation and refining thereof — is the problem and that civilization can be saved by turning itself into North Korea for any length of time.

The harnessing and generation of electricity are among the greatest discoveries ever. It’s helped make the world safer and more sanitary. Electricity runs the equipment that is used to make the medicine that saves lives. It runs the cameras, televisions and computers that allow us to see evils that are being perpetuated around the world that we might not have otherwise known about. And fossil fuels, an energy source that there is currently no substitute for when it comes to powering the masses, will remain a necessity for the wellbeing of the human race no matter how many times progressives click their heels together three times while repeating “There’s no place like Solyndra… There’s no place like Solyndra…” We should be celebrating electricity and fuel instead of pretending it’s some sort of cancer that needs to be cut out of our lives. Notice I said “our” lives, meaning the “regular” people — the rich eco-hypocrites, who will of course still fly on private jets and own multiple mansions, have no intention of ever living by their own proposed rules.

I’ll say this though: The co-founder of Earth Day wasn’t a hypocrite, at least when it comes to composting.

Watching ‘No Rifle Association’ lefty celebs soil themselves at the NRA convention should be a real treat

Work on President Trump’s re-election campaign has started early:

A group of Hollywood stars — including Alec Baldwin, Julianne Moore, Debra Messing, Jimmy Kimmel, Michael Moore and Amy Schumer — is banding together to take on the National Rifle Association (NRA).

The performers and other public figures, including Parkland, Fla., shooting survivor David Hogg, released an open letter on Friday to announce the launch of the NoRA initiative, short for No Rifle Association.

In a blistering message to NRA President Wayne LaPierre, the group says, “You and the gun manufacturers that fund you value money over lives.”
“Your time signing checks in our blood is up,” the letter states. Time magazine was first to obtain the letter.

The campaign, according to organizers, is a “non-partisan coalition of activists, artists, celebrities, writers, gun violence survivors, and policy experts.”

“Nonpartisan”? Haha! I have to hand it to them for being so adept at comedy.

But here’s the funniest part:

According to NoRA’s website, the group intends to head to the NRA’s annual meeting next month.

“We’re going to show up at the NRA convention in Dallas and make them wish they stayed home,” the website says. “We might just sue the pants off the NRA.”

While I do agree that the appearance of liberal celebrity activists does have the effect of making everybody else wish they’d stayed at home, I can’t wait for this bunch to get the crap triggered out of them at the NRA convention. It might be so entertaining that if I didn’t know better I’d think this was an NRA scheme to get more people to attend.

A Hollywood “No Rifle Association”? Life imitates art yet again:

WAHHH! DNC files lawsuit because reality isn’t matching up with the liberal election loss narrative

This is even more pathetic considering that’s the party that got busted rigging the nomination process in Hillary’s favor:

The projection is strong here:

Taking a page from its response to the Watergate break-in, the Democratic National Committee filed suit on Friday against President Donald Trump’s campaign, the Russian government and WikiLeaks for allegedly engaging in a conspiracy to damage the Democratic Party during the 2016 presidential race.

The DNC is seeking recompense for what it says was millions of dollars in damages from Russia’s hacking of its internal emails, which were then published by WikiLeaks, with the encouragement of then-candidate Trump and his campaign.

The civil complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan on Friday, is unrelated to the criminal investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller, as well as congressional investigations into Russian meddling.

I take issue with that last sentence especially — this is completely related to the Mueller investigation. If the DNC believed the Mueller investigation was going to do damage to Trump would they bother with this stunt?

Obviously, this is also a fundraising stunt to get some midterm cash. Too bad a lot of Dems already sent over a half million dollars to Andrew McCabe’s legal defense fun. After all the fingers that have been pointed at Trump since the election, the only people I’m seeing getting in any real hot water are Dem darlings. Pass the popcorn!

Yikes: Delusional Hillary Clinton had NO idea What Happened™ on election night

A new book by a New York Times reporter who tagged along with Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail quotes Hillary Clinton as going full Raging Bull on election night and sounding as if there was some sort of conspiracy to keep her out of the Oval Office. Prepare yourselves for a rush of schadenfreude:

“Of all the Brooklyn aides, Jen Palmieri had the most pleasant bedside manner,” Chozick writes. “That made her the designated deliverer of bad news to Hillary. But not this time. She told Robby there was no way she was going to tell Hillary she couldn’t win. That’s when Robby, drained and deflated, watching the results with his team in a room down the hall from Hillary’s suite, labored into the hallway of the Peninsula to break the news. Hillary didn’t seem all that surprised. ‘I knew it. I knew this would happen to me….’ Hillary said, now within a couple of inches of his face. ‘They were never going to let me be president.’”

Who’s this “they” Hillary’s talking about? Certainly not the anti-Trump “Deep State.” Certainly not the New York Times or the rest of the MSM:

By “they,” even though she apparently doesn’t know it, Hillary’s talking about herself:

“A week earlier, she’d cut off Joel and the pollster John Anzalone, as they walked her through the almost daily reminder that half the country disliked her,” Chozick writes. “You know, I am getting pretty tired of hearing about how nobody likes me,” she said.

“‘Oh, what’s the point? They’re never going to like me,’ Hillary told this friend.”

Apparently “they” also prevented Hillary from campaigning in Wisconsin while forcing her to insult half the country as “deplorable” and promising to put voters in coal states out of work. If Hillary Clinton wants to know who “they” are she only needs some self-awareness and a mirror.

Here’s a shorter version of Clinton on election night:

*****

Update:

Oh man, it gets funnier. Hillary Clinton was blindsided by her “deplorables” comment backfiring with flyover country because it always got a hearty laugh in the Hamptons:

“The Deplorables always got a laugh, over living-room chats in the Hamptons, at dinner parties under the stars on Martha’s Vineyard, over passed hors d’oeuvres in Beverly Hills, and during sunset cocktails in Silicon Valley,” Chozick continues.

“‘I really messed up,’ [Clinton] told aides that night,” Chozick writes of the evening when the candidate’s Deplorables shtick went public.

She just didn’t expect that not to fly in Paducah. “Why aren’t you laughing? This shit killed on the Vineyard!”

Wow, it’s been a ROUGH week for the Dems’ election narrative

Check me if I’m wrong, but all the “we need an investigation into allegations that Trump colluded with Russia” thing so far doesn’t seem to be panning out the way the Dems would like:

This post-election game is NOT going the way the anti-Trump Resistance has been wet dreaming about.

Meanwhile:

Eleven House Republicans have sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray officially referring Hillary Clinton, fired FBI Director James Comey, fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for criminal investigation. FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were caught sending hundreds of anti-Trump text messages during the Clinton investigation, have also been referred for criminal investigation. U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was tapped by Sessions a few weeks ago to investigate the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe, was copied on the request.

And the capper. Whatever love affair Dems have had in recent days over James Comey saying Trump’s morally unfit for office are flying right out the window with this admission:

As for the Stormy Daniels angle — the one remaining thing The Resistance is pinning its 25th Amendment hopes on — her lawyer’s been reduced to threatening to sue Trump for mocking a sketch:

IMPEACH!

Here’s the soundtrack to the Democrats’ week so far:

Protesters from Mexico trespass at U.S. border wall construction site and accidentally make the best point EVER

The Director of Homeland Security visited a construction site for a wall along the border on Wednesday, and protesters appeared on the Mexico side of the border:

Eventually, some of those protesters made their way over to the U.S. side and made a point, but NOT the one they thought they were making:

Gee, if there was only something that could be built to eliminate that kind of trespassing!

Peak 2018: NY Times, Washington Post win Pulitzer Prizes for stories that are POSSIBLY true

The “Trump/Russia collusion” narrative has become so ingrained among the Hillary Clinton excuse-spreaders in the media that even unproven angles based on the liberal speculation are enough for Pulitzer Prizes these days:

Reporting “possible ties” gets NYT/WaPo Pulitzers — Reporting ACTUAL ties such as, say, the reporter who busted Loretta Lynch meeting with Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac, remains frowned-upon.

Do as jet-set celebrity eco-hypocrites say NOT as they do, part XXXVII

Al Gore’s hypocrisy spirit animal Leonardo DiCaprio is well known for offering dire warnings about what’ll happen if we continue to rely on fossil fuels:

It won’t surprise you to know that Dicaprio remains skeptical of his own warnings, as evidenced by how he got to Coachella last week (Hint: It wasn’t by bicycle or kumquat-powered golf cart):

The Daily Mail says that tagging along with 43-year-old Leonardo to Coachella this weekend was his 20-year-old model girlfriend of four months, Camila Morrone. They were seen on Saturday night, and they made it obvious they were together because they “couldn’t keep their hands off each other.” Camila was also seen feeding Leonardo pizza in a VIP section.
[…]
But not only did Leonardo let her tag along to Coachella, they also flew out on his private jet

DiCaprio’s pledge to give up private jets lasted about as long as my moratoriums on pizza.

The rest of us are expected to stop eating meat, keep our lights off and drive battery-powered go-carts to offset these massive hypocrites. By the way, it’s now past mid-April and I’m still freezing, so if their global warming warnings are going to ever kick in, now would be a good time.

Chuck Todd, who hosted a dinner for a top Clinton aide, among journos getting the vapors over Sean Hannity’s Trump connection

Since it was learned yesterday that Sean Hannity retained Michael Cohen, the same lawyer President Trump hired, the mainstream media’s lack of self-awareness has reached such heights that it’s visible only from the International Space Station. NBC News’ Chuck Todd is among those who need somebody to prep the fainting couch and fetch the smelling salts:

OK, first off, I don’t get it. That criticism from self-described “objective journalists” like Todd only makes sense if Fox News bills Hannity the same way, but he’s a well-known Trump supporter and a Republican with an opinion show, not a “news” program, as Todd claims to host (often laughably, I might add). Hannity doesn’t “cover” stories — he comments on them. So even though perhaps the disclosure should have been made, I’m not really seeing any major reason for a freakout other than liberals and MSM journos (pardon the redundancy) hate Fox News and this story provided another tiny opening.

Here’s another reason Todd needs to give it a rest (via @Neontaster):

At the very least, Todd’s criticism of Hannity is “apples & oranges” and at most is big time projection and hypocrisy:

And Todd didn’t disclose that information. It was discovered as a result of the hack of John Podesta’s emails:

“Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd and his wife, a Democratic consultant, hosted a dinner party at their Washington D.C.-area home last year for Jennifer Palmieri, Hillary Clinton’s communications director.

An invitation for the shindig was sent on July 11, 2015 to John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman. Podesta’s hacked emails have been released online by Wikileaks.

The party, which also involved a cocktail hour, was thrown for Palmieri and her husband, Jim Lyons.

And don’t even get me started on the journos, some of which might hyperventilate over the Hannity story, who went to John Podesta’s dinner parties without disclosing that information to their viewers/readers:

On April 9th, 2015–shortly before Clinton officially announced she was running for president–Podesta cooked for at least 28 reporters at his Washington DC home. The reporters came from leading national outlets like the Associated Press, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and NBC. According to the leaked email, the dinner had five goals for the Clinton campaign: “Getting to know” reporters closely covering Clinton; “setting expectations” for the announcement and “launch period”; “framing” Clinton’s message and the race; “demystifying key players” on Clinton’s campaign; and “having fun and enjoying good cooking.”

Spare everybody the sanctimony over Hannity, MSMers. It’s not like he’s a former Clinton adviser being paid by ABC News to conduct an “objective” interview with James Comey or a CNN contributor leaking town hall questions to the Hillary campaign.

Here’s what Calif. Dems consider Nat’l Guard duties too closely tied to ‘immigration enforcement’

California Gov. Jerry Brown gladly accepted federal funding to mobilize the National Guard for use at the border. Except Brown said the Guard wouldn’t be used for purposes of enforcing immigration laws. How do Brown and the progressives who run California define duties that help enforce immigration laws? Well, pretty much anything:

California has rejected the federal government’s initial plans for National Guard troops to the border because the work is considered too closely tied to immigration enforcement, two U.S. officials told The Associated Press.

The state informed federal officials it will not allow its troops to fix and repair vehicles, operate remotely-controlled surveillance cameras to report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol, operate radios and provide “mission support,” which can include clerical work, buying gas and handling payroll, according to officials with knowledge of the talks who spoke condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.

California Gov. Jerry Brown elicited rare and effusive praise from President Donald Trump last week after he pledged 400 troops to the Guard’s third large-scale border mission since 2006.

The governor’s commitment allowed Trump to boast support from all four border-state governors and helped put the president above the lower end of his threshold of marshaling 2,000 to 4,000 troops that he wants as a border security mission to fight illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

The feds need to take back the money they sent to California for Guard deployment, with interest, and arrest some of the state’s lawless sanctuary city cheerleading politicians while they’re at it.
