Not a cult: Mueller action figures now available for Resistance to play with while waiting for Trump to be removed from office

Seriously?

The Left’s rabid need to fulfill some primal need to avoid merely admitting Hillary was a crap candidate just went up a notch:

Or as the more committed members of the anti-Trump Resistance might refer to it: A sex toy.

McJournalism! Trump’s fast food buffet for Clemson players had the Washington Post trying to make Burger-Gate a thing

Pulitzer!

President Trump had the national champion Clemson Tigers football team to the White House yesterday, and because of the shutdown he had to improvise out of his own pocket:

The Washington Post’s journalistic instincts kicked in quickly:

I smell a Pulitzer in the air!

Oh, and then the paper that once brought down a presidency crunched Trump’s original count on the number of burgers in the hopes of making “Burger-Gate” a new thing:

Leave it to “journalists” to do more investigating when a president spends his own money on something as opposed to everybody else’s.

Hopefully next an intrepid journalist does an investigation into exactly what a “berder” is. That whole WaPo “investigation” comes across as an audition for a job at CNN.

Also, I don’t want to brag, but I called it. Here’s proof:

The shot:

And the chasers:

Excuse me, but I’ll be spending the rest of the day thinking about the liberal media reactions to Trump’s burger-fest and doing this:

Broward Sheriff Scott Israel gets suspended, blames NRA, then whines about ‘false narratives’

Absolutely shameless

The new governor of Florida has suspended Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel for what boils down to general incompetence in the wake of the Parkland school shooting and other things:

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who faced criticism over his department’s response to the deadly Parkland, Florida, school shooting last year, was officially suspended by new Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday.

“Sheriff Israel has repeatedly failed and has demonstrated a pattern of poor leadership,” DeSantis said in a statement.

“He failed to protect Floridians and visitors during the tragic Fort Lauderdale International Airport shooting in 2017. He failed in his duties to keep our families and children safe during the devastating shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb.14, 2018,” the statement read. “These incidents demonstrate Sheriff Israel’s repeated incompetence and neglect of duty. The families of the victims deserve accountability. It is my job as governor to ensure that the safety of our local communities, especially the safety of our children, is paramount. Government officials must be held accountable for their actions, and/or inactions.

Israel, true to form, immediately shifted the blame to the NRA:

From my perspective, that shamelessness only totally confirms that Gov. DeSantis made the right decision.

Then, in the irony of all ironies, Israel whined about “false narratives”:

“There was no wrongdoing on my part. I served the county honorably,” he said. “False narratives,” Israel claimed, are continuing “but not in a court of law. In a court of law, only the facts matter.”

Oh, there are false narratives here, but they’re coming from Israel’s side of the debate.

Israel doesn’t need to worry, because CNN or MSNBC will probably hire him as an analyst within a couple days.

Marx on the Hudson: Super-progressive politician perfectly sums up the socialist/communist mindset

Way to go, Comrade

I’ll say this for socialists like Bill de Blasio: There’s no need to read between the lines, because they just come right out and say it, as the NYC mayor did during his State of the City address yesterday:

And just guess who this commie thinks has the RIGHT hands! They’re so predictable.

In the title I called de Blasio “Marx on the Hudson,” but that might even be an insult to Karl.

De Blasio really got his hammer & sickle on during his speech, which included this:

Why doesn’t the dude just move to a commie country that already practices what he preaches?

Progressive shocker! Bill de Blasio’s plan to keep NYC parks clean of used syringes has opposite of intended effect

Law of Unintended Consequences yet again confirmed

Is there anything progressive politicians ever do that does not validate the Law of Unintended Consequences? People’s Exhibit #9,402:

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to have junkies toss their used syringes into special receptacles has failed to clean up drug-infested parks, and the bins are serving more as suggestion boxes — spreading the message that the city is OK with them shooting up there.

Official statistics obtained by The Post from the first six months of de Blasio’s controversial program show that parks in the Bronx are still littered with dangerous hypodermic needles, with nearly 60,000 found on the ground compared with just 7,000 in Hizzoner’s 44 locked containers.

Even worse, the green metal bins are seen as a welcome mat for druggies to take over the parks, said one addict who openly injected himself in St. Mary’s Park in the Bronx Thursday morning with what he said was a speedball of heroin and cocaine.

“They’re giving permission with that box,” said Javier Martinez, 32.

The best way to get de Blasio to figure out how to keep parks free of discarded syringes would be to challenge him to come up with a way to make the problem worse, then he might inadvertently come up with something that accomplished the opposite.

‘It’s a very Ruth Bader Ginsburg Christmas’ at Michael Moore’s house

Cult? WHAT cult?

Michael Moore has obviously volunteered to lead a Ruth Bader Ginsburg-worshipping cult:

If lefties keep up this level of worship Barack Obama’s going to start getting super jealous of RBG.

What could possibly go wrong? Elizabeth Warren wants the federal gov’t to start manufacturing ‘affordable’ prescription drugs

The incompetent elephant(s) in the room

This is unintentionally funny on a whole lot of levels:

Are they going to make drugs as “affordable” as the “Affordable” Care Act made health insurance? The only people who will believe the federal government will make anything affordable are the ones who don’t care to notice that they (meaning “we”) over $20 trillion in debt.

Also, the federal government couldn’t make a f***ing health insurance website that worked properly but sure, who would have any doubt about taking their heart pills and blood pressure meds?

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) would like the federal government to start manufacturing prescription drugs when the market fails and prices for certain medications become unaffordable.

It’s an interesting idea, experts who lean right and left agree. But more than that, it is a reminder that there are all kinds of creative ways we might go about bringing down drug prices. We know Americans are really worried about drug costs — six in 10 people take a prescription and 80 percent say the cost of drugs is unreasonable — and they really want Washington to do something about it. The issue always ranks as one of the public’s top health priorities for Congress.

Vox at least does acknowledge the incompetent elephant in the room:

There are some questions, of course, starting first and foremost with how well equipped the government is to make medications. The Food and Drug Administration previously forced the National Institutes of Health to shut down its drug manufacturing facilities over quality concerns — though this legislation notably allows the federal government to contract with private companies to do the actual drug producing.

So if the government would contract out the manufacturing, that means they’d be serving as an extra “middle man,” which pretty much defeats the stated intent of making the whole process cheaper. But at least now Warren has something to talk about on the 2020 campaign trail besides her backfired DNA test.

Hillary Clinton sends letter to 8-year-old girl who lost class election to boy, America now waits for kid to blame Russia & sexism for loss

Also, disenfranchisement!

Hillary Clinton just can’t help but turn everything into an identity politics controversy. Not even a third-grade class election is off limits, as evidenced by a letter the two-time presidential loser sent to a little girl in Maryland:

Hillary Clinton this month told a third-grade girl who lost her bid to become class president that it’s not easy to run for an office that’s “only been sought by boys.”

“While I know you may have been disappointed that you did not win President, I am so proud of you for deciding to run in the first place,” Clinton wrote in a letter to a third grade girl at a Maryland private school. “As I know too well, it’s not easy when you stand up and put yourself in contention for a role that’s only been sought by boys.”

Clinton’s spokesman Nick Merrill, confirmed to the Washington Post that the letter is authentic.
[…]
Morales lost by one vote to a boy. As runner-up, she will serve as vice president of the class, a position she said she is happy to have.

How does Hillary know it’s “a role that’s only been sought by boys” in that school? Media reports I’ve seen don’t seem remotely curious about that claim, perhaps because the answer would rip a cute little narrative to shreds.

I’ll admit to being a little surprised that Hillary didn’t tell the girl to protest the election due to disenfranchisement:

The election was a tight race and Martha ran against a popular classmate. In the first vote, several ballots were declared invalid since they had not been filled out correctly, reported the Washington Post. When a second vote was held, Martha eventually lost.

Paging Eric Holder!

But on the plus side, Clinton’s got a lot of free time to comb over the elementary school class election news and send letters to girls who lost to boys, because she’s NOT president. Hey, whatever she finds therapeutic.

Abortion cheerleader Nancy Pelosi rejects Trump’s wall proposal on purely moral grounds

Twisted “priorities,” Pelosi-style

Nancy Pelosi has no problems with abortion on demand or accepting an award in the name of Planned Parenthood’s founding eugenicist:

But what IS an insult to Pelosi’s delicate moral sensibilities? The suggestion of a wall at the border:

I was going to suggest Trump promise that at least one door through the wall will lead directly to an abortion clinic to entice Pelosi into agreeing to back the idea, but she’d probably oppose it even more after figuring it’d be eliminating future Democrat voters.

James Comey vs. James Comey on need for ‘transparency’ about what happened in 2016

TOTAL BS alert!

When House Republicans wanted to question former FBI Director James Comey about everything that happened surrounding the 2016 election, he was disappointed that a “behind-closed-doors” session was sought, because he wanted all the cards to be put on the table for all of America to see:

Fast forward the tape to Monday afternoon. After his second private questioning, Comey talked to reporters. Fox News’ Catherine Herridge asked Deep State Jimbo about leaking classified information, and suddenly his “full transparency” desires went right out the window:

SO MUCH transparency!
