That’s RICH! Former president who never met at mandate or gov’t regulation he didn’t like will urge rejection of ‘authoritarian politics’

ZERO self-awareness

You probably won’t be surprised to know that former President Obama remains as self-unaware as ever:

“Next week, President Obama will offer new thoughts on this moment and what it requires from the American people. He will expand upon several of the themes from his summer address, including that America is at its best when our democracy is inclusive and our citizens are engaged,” Katie Hill, the communications director for Obama, said in a statement.

“He will echo his call to reject the rising strain of authoritarian politics and policies,” she continued. “And he will preview arguments he’ll make this fall, specifically that Americans must not fall victim to our own apathy by refusing to do the most fundamental thing demanded of us as citizens: vote.”

Hilarious stuff coming from the Godfather of the Obamacare mandate who loved his unilateral “pen and phone” as well as EPA regulations aplenty.

Bonus laugh: Here’s what Obama’s getting an award for:

Obama will receive the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Paul H. Douglas Award for Ethics in Government during a ceremony on Sept. 7, the school and Obama’s office announced Thursday.

Will former IRS conservative hunter Lois Lerner and the first AG ever found in contempt of Congress Eric Holder be there to accept it with him?

Time to play ‘What’s Wrong With This Headline vs. Picture,’ anti-Trump Resistance edition

They should have at least Photoshopped THIS out

File this under “when you’re so desperate to slam Trump for anything that you don’t even bother to look at the picture vs. the headline”:

Maybe they should have at least Photoshopped the open computer next to Trump out of the picture before saying that.

It’s come to this: Andrew Cuomo calls officers who take criminal aliens & human traffickers off the street ‘a bunch of thugs’

From the same guy who recently said “America was never that great”

This is what the modern mainstream Democrat platform has become — siding with criminal illegals over our country’s law enforcement officers. In this particular case, ICE:

What an absolute dirtbag.

Here’s what the people Cuomo calls “thugs” have been up to lately:

Or as Cuomo calls it, “thuggish” behavior.

Maybe this is why Dems like Cuomo don’t like ICE:

Meanwhile, Cuomo recently said America was “never that great.” At least it’s clear where he stands.

Dick’s Sporting Goods caved to anti-NRA activists who don’t shop there, company shareholders hardest hit

Shareholders must love David Hogg and Alyssa Milano having a say in the direction of the company they’re invested in

Earlier this year, Dick’s Sporting Goods was quick to cave into demands from David Hogg and the pro-gun control activist crowd. I’m a pro-business guy, but I’m also a pro-2nd Amendment guy, and as such I confess to getting some pangs of schadenfreude over this:

Yep, that’s a big time backfire:

Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS.N) reported a bigger-than-expected drop in quarterly same-store sales on Wednesday and forecast further declines this year, hit by tighter gun controls and a drop in Under Armour sales.

Shares in the company fell as much as 10 percent after it posted a 1.9 percent drop in same-store sales, bigger than analysts’ average estimate of a 0.62 percent dip.

Dick’s was one of the first retailers to stop selling assault rifles and high-capacity magazines as well as bar the sale of guns to people under age 21 following a massacre at a Florida high school in February.

The company had predicted that its hunting guns business would be pressurized by the change in policy but said the move should also attract more people to its stores.

Narrator: “But caving to left-wing activists didn’t attract more people to its stores.” If anything it had the opposite effect. It seems company shareholders wouldn’t be too thrilled with the company’s CEO putting control of their investment into the hands of David Hogg, Shannon Watts and Alyssa Milano, but maybe that’s just me.

Ex Maryland governor a lock to win most pitifully shameless liberal take on the Jacksonville shooting

Absolutely pathetic

In Jacksonville on Sunday, two people were killed and over ten injured by a man from Baltimore, Maryland who brought a gun he obtained in that state into a gun-free zone in Florida and shot up the place after losing a video game tournament. He then killed himself.

With that in mind, guess who former mayor of Baltimore and ex-governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley, decided to slam for the shooting:

Got that? It’s Florida Gov. Rick Scott and the NRA’s fault that this guy with a history of mental illness legally obtained a gun in the gun control utopia of Maryland (Baltimore area) and brought it to Florida to kill people in another kind of area liberals love to create: Gun free zones.

O’Malley’s now the frontrunner for the Shameless Lib Asshole of the 2018 award, but the year is young.

China reportedly hacked Hillary Clinton’s home server and read all her emails, FBI agent Peter Strzok yawned

Attn. MSM! … MSM?

This is from the Daily Caller because the mainstream media won’t pick up on it until they can figure out a way to say that China only did this at the behest of Russia and Trump:

A Chinese-owned company operating in the Washington, D.C., area hacked Hillary Clinton’s private server throughout her term as secretary of state and obtained nearly all her emails, two sources briefed on the matter told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The Chinese firm obtained Clinton’s emails in real time as she sent and received communications and documents through her personal server, according to the sources, who said the hacking was conducted as part of an intelligence operation.

The Chinese wrote code that was embedded in the server, which was kept in Clinton’s residence in upstate New York. The code generated an instant “courtesy copy” for nearly all of her emails and forwarded them to the Chinese company, according to the sources.

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) found that virtually all of Clinton’s emails were sent to a “foreign entity,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, said at a July 12 House Committee on the Judiciary hearing. He did not reveal the entity’s identity, but said it was unrelated to Russia.

And here’s a shocker: The Hillary superfan at the FBI at the time, Peter Strzok, didn’t do anything about it:

Two officials with the ICIG, investigator Frank Rucker and attorney Janette McMillan, met repeatedly with FBI officials to warn them of the Chinese intrusion, according to a former intelligence officer with expertise in cybersecurity issues, who was briefed on the matter. He spoke anonymously, as he was not authorized to publicly address the Chinese’s role with Clinton’s server.

Among those FBI officials was Peter Strzok, who was then the bureau’s top counterintelligence official. Strzok was fired this month following the discovery he sent anti-Trump texts to his mistress and co-worker, Lisa Page. Strzok didn’t act on the information the ICIG provided him, according to Gohmert.

That’s hardly surprising. Thinking through the content of Strzok’s texts to and from Lisa Page and how they felt the need to try and “stop” Trump from becoming president, the last thing Strzok would have wanted to do just months or weeks before the election is help point out how Clinton’s recklessness was giving China easy access to classified information.

Another great moment in Fake News, courtesy of CNN

Gee, why does 2/3 of the public distrust the media

About a month ago, CNN reported breathlessly that, according to “sources,” Donald Trump knew in advance of a 2016 meeting between his and Russians who are said to have been willing to offer dirt on Hillary Clinton:

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, claims that then-candidate Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton, sources with knowledge tell CNN. Cohen is willing to make that assertion to special counsel Robert Mueller, the sources said.

Cohen’s claim would contradict repeated denials by Trump, Donald Trump Jr., their lawyers and other administration officials who have said that the President knew nothing about the Trump Tower meeting until he was approached about it by The New York Times in July 2017.

Cohen alleges that he was present, along with several others, when Trump was informed of the Russians’ offer by Trump Jr. By Cohen’s account, Trump approved going ahead with the meeting with the Russians, according to sources.

The CNN story still to this day contains this line:

Contacted by CNN, one of Cohen’s attorneys, Lanny Davis, declined to comment.

Oh, one more thing. CNN’s “source” was… Lanny Davis. And Davis admitted it:

So all in one story, CNN cited an anonymous “source” that turned out to be notorious super-weasel Lanny Davis, all while saying Davis declined to comment on the story. THIS. Is CNN.

And it shouldn’t be surprising that, given all that, CNN still stands by their story, all while wondering why 2/3 of the public doesn’t trust the media.

Journo who works at the same network as Brian Williams says Fox News is the reason people distrust the media

NBC News employs journalism’s equivalent of Commander McBragg

A recent poll found that about two-thirds of Americans believe the media is biased and should be viewed with healthy skepticism. NBC News’ chief political correspondent Chuck Todd, who works at the same network that employs Brian “Commander McBragg” Williams, mostly blames Fox News for that public perception:

NBC host Chuck Todd said Sunday that the “Roger Ailes-created echo chamber” created the environment that has led to the public believing the media is biased.

“The conservative echo chamber created that environment,” Todd said on “Meet The Press” while responding to an argument about the media’s favorability from CBN News’s David Broidy.

“It has been a tactic and a tool of the Roger Ailes-created echo chamber.”

Ailes, who died last year, was the former CEO of Fox News and widely seen as a key figure in shaping the news network.

Aside from NBC News employing Brian Williams and Al Sharpton, that criticism of Fox News is from the same “journalists” who will frequently have Dan Rather on their panel discussions. What a joke.

You’re doing it wrong: David Hogg demands $5 million donation from Smith & Wesson or else — well — he’ll think of SOMETHING

Besides, why would Hogg want to accept what he calls “blood money”?

America’s newest high profile gun control activist might not have made it into college, but he’s already at the top the left-wing activist graduating class when it comes to his GPA in Shakedown & Extortion 101:

Student gun control advocates and one of the survivors of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting are finishing a 50-mile, four-day march in Massachusetts to the headquarters of gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson.

The group is gathering outside company headquarters Sunday in Springfield.

The marchers have condemned Smith & Wesson for making the rifle used in the February mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The group wants the company to donate $5 million to gun violence research.

The Boston Globe reported David Hogg, a Parkland shooting survivor, called the march empowering and said Massachusetts shows how commonsense gun laws work.

Suggested Smith/Wesson response: “We started writing out your check for $5 million you say would be spent on ‘gun violence research’ when it occurred to us that by blaming S&W and the NRA for every shooting your ‘research’ has already concluded. Besides, we figured you wouldn’t want to accept ‘blood money’ anyway. Good day.”

Why would Hogg want to accept what he calls “blood money” anyway?

Speaking of “common sense gun laws,” the Jacksonville shooter apparently brought his gun to a Florida gun-free zone from Maryland — Baltimore specifically — which are bastions of liberal gun control laws. But sure, blame the NRA, Smith/Wesson and Florida Republicans, and hand David Hogg a check for $5 million, which will somehow magically ensure this never happens again.

Head of DNC (the ‘we believe women’ party) runs away while being asked if he believes Keith Ellison’s accuser

“*We believe women” — *Exceptions apply

The chairman of the DNC, super-leftist Tom Perez, is a big supporter of the Women’s March and their credo of believing all women:

As usual, claims like that should have asterisks next to them.

Rep. Keith Ellison is facing some accusations of domestic abuse. Naturally, Perez walked the Women’s March talk and said Ellison should step aside until these serious charges are sorted out. Just kidding!

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez on Thursday refused to say whether he believed liberal Sierra Club activist Karen Monahan, who has accused Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison of physically and emotionally abusing her.

Ellison, the deputy chair of the DNC, has denied Monahan’s allegations but the committee has so far declined to say whether it believes Ellison or his accuser.

A tracker for Republican opposition research group America Rising on Thursday managed to catch Perez at the Hyatt Regency Chicago, where the DNC is holding its summer meeting.

Perez proved that the best way to train yourself for a successful political career is “cardio,” because he ran away as fast as possible:

And when Ellison does address questions about Ellison it’s only to punt the ball over to the Minnesota state Dems even though Ellison is considered the second in command at the DNC. Perhaps Perez should explain at the next Women’s March why there are exceptions to “we believe women.”
