You’ve got to reluctantly give the Democrats points for their willingness to look any possible sense of complete and utter feelings of shame right in the face and yell “F**K OFF!” These people are something else:
Democrats are preparing to highlight allegations of corruption surrounding the Trump administration — and a legislative agenda to prevent future abuses — as they continue rolling out their party platform ahead of November’s midterm elections.
The first planks of the “A Better Deal” platform, released last year, focused on the party’s economic agenda. Now, with questions about pay-to-play politics swirling around President Trump and his current and former aides, Democrats are set to introduce anti-corruption proposals Monday billed as “A Better Deal for Our Democracy.”
According to a senior Democratic official familiar with the announcement, the new agenda will include proposals that would eliminate loopholes that allow lobbyists and lawmakers to buy and sell influence without the public’s knowledge. The message: Elect Democrats in November to “clean up the chaos and corruption in Washington.”
I’ll personally give the DNC a couple dollars if they’ll let Bob Menendez do their first anti-corruption commercial.
If I didn’t know better I might guess that Hillary Clinton’s now earning a fortune by being paid under the table by the RNC for maintaining a high profile in the Democratic Party with important midterm elections just a few months away. I mean, what else could explain this?
"We have to win back the Congress," Hillary Clinton said Friday at a DNC event. "I’ll be there with you every step of the way because we are going to take back the country we love."
Yep, this is the headline: Guns used in Texas killings were less lethal than in other mass shootings.
The attack at a Texas high school Friday echoed the all-too-familiar horrors Americans are accustomed to seeing on the news. But two details set it apart from the list of other recent deadly attacks: explosives and weapons used.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in Texas says the gunman, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, who was a student at Santa Fe High School, used two firearms: a shotgun and .38 caliber revolver, both of which he got from his father. Ten were left dead, mostly students.
Disgustingly, the mainstream media seems so disappointed an AR-15 wasn’t used that they actually spinning 10 dead students as “but imagine how bad it COULD have been!”
No word from USA Today on if the guns used in the shooting were the kind that can accommodate the notorious “chainsaw bayonet” accessory:
But Democrats on occasion like to prove they haven’t lost their perspective. After Dems have gone to the mat in defense of violent gangs, Debbie Wasserman Schultz wasn’t afraid to use the “t” word: Terrorists. However, she wasn’t talking about MS-13, but rather the NRA:
According to her recent interview with the Huffington Post, Wasserman Schultz is no fan of the gun rights organization, and she’s not afraid to show it.
“The NRA is kind of just shy of a terrorist organization,” Schultz told the magazine. “They have done everything they can to perpetuate the culture of violence that we have in our country with the spread of assault weapons across the nation.”
And DWS is NOT just shy of being totally nuts — she’s there:
The Democrats should feel free to run on the “NRA are terrorists and MS-13 are symbols of the founding principles of America” platform.
Yesterday President Trump referred to MS-13 criminal gang members as “animals,” and the lib media immediately assumed “hack” position and began spinning that as if Trump was talking about all illegal immigrants. But Nancy Pelosi has outdone even the hackiest of hack journalists and disingenuous Dems with this doozy:
Unbelievable… Pelosi straight up defending MS-13.
"Does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person? Calling people animals is not a good thing." pic.twitter.com/t9uuAzKuE2
“These aren’t people. These are animals,” Trump says in response to a question about the MS-13 gang during his roundtable on sanctuary cities. “… because of the weak laws, they come in fast” https://t.co/FfO3D5ug97
The other day, a professor of political science at the University of Virginia had an op-ed in the New York Times in which he warned other liberals who are among the venomous anti-Trump Resistance that their foaming-at-the-mouth approach would be wildly counterproductive if they don’t dial it back very soon.
Right on cue, I give you the New York Daily News’ take on protests in Gaza that got violent while Israel and the U.S. were dedicating the United States’ new embassy in Jerusalem:
Arnold Schwarzenegger traveled all the way from California to Austria by bicycle, rowboat and kumquat-powered golf cart in order to sound the alarm about fossil fuels and ask President Trump to join the cause:
Arnold Schwarzenegger is urging President Donald Trump to join in efforts to promote green energy, saying he would have “a lot of victories.”
The former California governor spoke Tuesday at the R20 Austrian World Summit, an offshoot of a Schwarzenegger climate change initiative. Schwarzenegger has sparred with Trump, who last year announced the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate accord.
Schwarzenegger said: “Those of you who resist because you can’t imagine success without fossil fuels: we ask you to join us. Everyone. Also you, President Trump: Join us.”
Schwarzenegger’s certainly doing his part to get rid of fossil fuels — he’s burning as much of it as he possibly can so there’s none left for the rest of us:
