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.

‘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.

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.

Customs & Border Patrol busting an MS-13 gang member puts a crimp in the liberal media’s ‘mostly women & children’ narrative

Maybe Jim Acosta would like to weigh in on this one

Not that this will surprise many of you, but it turns out the “migrant caravan” might not be the 100 percent peace parade the Left has made it out to be:

Democrats have informed us that concerns about this kind of thing are unfounded, paranoid and even racist:

The incident occurred at approximately 6:09 p.m., when agents encountered a man just east of the Calexico Port of Entry suspected of being in the United States illegally. After a short interview, the man told agents he is a Honduran citizen and active gang member with the notorious Mara Salvatrucha 13 (MS-13) international crime organization. The man also told agents he traveled to the United States border with a large group of people from Central America intending on filing for asylum in the United States.

The man was taken to El Centro station for further questioning. At the station records checks revealed the man is 29-year-old Jose Villalobos-Jobel, a citizen of Honduras. Again, Villalobos confirmed his story of his gang involvement and intent on entering the United States illegally.

Villalobos will be held pending his processing and repatriation to Honduras.

A while back CNN’s mega-hack and drama queen Jim Acosta tried to show up Trump about the caravan but instead beclowned himself in light of what we now know:

Good luck with that! On Kavanaugh’s first day, lefties continue same protest that failed to stop his confirmation

The Handmaid’s Fail

Brett Kavanaugh’s first day at the Supreme Court saw a bunch of women who are completely free to protest and make fools of themselves all they want pretending to be horribly oppressed by a new Supreme Court justice they don’t like who was nominated by a president they hate:

Yep, it’s the same shtick that didn’t stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation in the first place, but maybe it’ll work this time! This should henceforth be referred to as The Handmaid’s Fail.

That sad cosplay spectacle follows days of lefties embarrassing themselves, their parents and all their ancestors:

Who’s got a weird hat, loud voice, lots of free time and hates Trump & Kavanaugh? THIS guy:

“This is what democracy looks like!”

The U.S. is a Republic, not a democracy, but for the sake of argument, do they know what else democracy looks like?

To sum up the week liberals had…

And then some.

Great moments in progressive Hollywood double standards, part 4,205

LOL

Well, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court yesterday, and the liberal meltdown make Three Mile Island look like a small engine backfire.

One of the most vocal celebs opposing Kavanaugh has been Alyssa Milano, who says she’s come so far on the issue she’s also prepared to hold Bill Clinton accountable (20 years later):

Anybody buying that? You shouldn’t. Milano tweeted this a few years ago and it was up until just a few days ago, when it magically disappeared:

There are no double standards like progressive double standards!

Dem Sen. Chris Murphy pretty much admits Kavanaugh’s opening statement nailed the reason this is all happening

Accidental fit of honesty

During Brett Kavanaugh’s powerful opening statement at Thursday’s hearing, he said that all of what’s going on has little-to-nothing to do with the truth about Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations and everything to do with pure foaming-at-the-mouth partisan politics. If you missed it, here it is:

Fast-forward the tape to Friday. Sen. Chris Murphy, responding after the Judiciary Committee voted to forward Kavanaugh’s nomination to the full Senate along with Jeff Flake’s insistence that a week is taken for the FBI to check out the accuser’s allegations, confirmed that it’s all about politics:

Translated: There is nothing that will make Dems keep trying to delay the confirmation process. If a few Republicans keep playing along the whole party will be paying the price for the whooping they’ll get in November.

It’s come to this: Jennifer Granholm says witnesses corroborate Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation against Kavanaugh because they can’t remember anything

Mind = lost

Lefties have officially lost their minds over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, but few have gone more batsh*t crazy than Jennifer Granholm, who now claims — for this one instance at least — that witnesses who can’t remember seeing anything that’s been alleged corroborate the accuser’s story:

JAKE TAPPER: We now have four individuals who have come forward who were named by Professor Ford who were at that party. And all four: Kavanaugh, Judge, Smyth, and her friend, Leland Keyser, have all said they don’t remember anything like this ever happened. And Leland Keyser, who says she believes Ford, says that doesn’t even remember being at a party where Kavanaugh was present.

JENNIFER GRANHOLM: Right. And that actually corroborates Ford’s story. Which is that she was so horrified by this that she kind of snuck out or slunk out of this apartment in a way that no one would no what happened because she was so utterly mortified.

This loon was the governor of my state for eight years.

In case anybody’s wondering what it would take to make the left think the accuser’s story was falling apart, the answer is “nothing would make them believe that.”

Kavanaugh accuser’s lawyer presents ‘witnesses’ who didn’t witness anything

Total clown show

To paraphrase Bill Clinton, it depends on what your definition of “witnesses” is:

Another person claimed by Christine Blasey Ford to have attended a gathering decades ago during which, Ford claims, she was sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has denied any recollection of having attended the party.

In an email to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Saturday, Leland Ingham Keyser, a former classmate of Ford’s at the Holton-Arms all-girls school in Maryland, said she doesn’t know Kavanaugh or remember being at the party with him.

“Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford,” lawyer Howard J. Walsh III of Bethesda, Md., conveyed in an email to the committee that was obtained by Fox News.
[…]
Keyser’s denial brings to four the number of witnesses, including Kavanaugh, who’ve all said they have no memory of the party or the incident.

Other denials were issued earlier this week by Mark Judge and Patrick “PJ” Smith.

That’s a full “crash & burn” for the accuser’s side.

So far the witnesses named by Kavanaugh’s accuser’s lawyer have been like those two airmen in “A Few Good Men” who were brought in for bluff purposes and would have testified that they didn’t witness anything.

But Ford’s lawyer had that covered in the most ridiculous way possible:

“It’s not surprising that Ms. Keyser has no recollection of the evening as they did not discuss it,” Katz said. “It’s also unremarkable that Ms. Keyser does not remember attending a specific gathering 30 years ago at which nothing of consequence happened to her. Dr. Ford of course will never forget this gathering because of what happened to her there.”

Ha! I’m sure Ford’s alleged “best friend” really appreciates the attorney responded to her claim that she didn’t witness anything by basically saying “well of course YOU don’t remember anything because nobody tried to rape YOU that night!”

So what happened to her was so awful that she never told anybody but people she knew are supposed to be considered witnesses because they would have known if Ford would have told them? I’m confused.

The Republicans need to bring this three-ring circus to a close and just hold the vote. Ford, her attorney, and the Senate Democrats obviously have no intention of testifying and will drag this out until next year if the GOP allows it.
