Elizabeth Warren pledges not to accept campaign donations from group that would never in a million years give her any $$

One of the lamest stunts a hack politician can do is to pledge to avoid doing something that would never happen. That’s where Elizabeth Warren comes in:

Wow, she’s really putting her career on the line over that one! That’s like Michael Moore saying he’s going to give up the salad bar for a year.

In related news, Elizabeth Warren also pledged not to take anything from AncestryDNA.

‘Deplorables’ rejoice! Hillary Clinton plans to ride into midterm election battle alongside Dems

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.” Hahaha! Have fun, Dems. And maybe call everybody who doesn’t agree with you “deplorable” too. After all, it worked out so well for Hillary.

So go for it, DNC, light that fuse!

Liberal perspective: Dems defend MS-13 from Trump while Debbie Wasserman Schultz says NRA ‘just shy of a terrorist organization’

The lib media and many Democrats have gone all in to slam President Trump after he called members of MS-13 gangs “animals.” Among them, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer:

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.

Abortion superfan Nancy Pelosi believes MS-13 gangs deserve more human dignity than Trump’s giving them

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:

Got that? Pelosi thinks GOP tax cuts and the law-abiding members of the NRA are mass killers, but MS-13 are worthy of dignified rhetoric from the president.

New York Daily News plunges depths of ‘journalism’ to scrape up in-kind donation to Trump’s re-election campaign

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:

Damn, they must have had to borrow James Cameron’s Deepsea Challenger to be able to sink that low.

The only thing that remains to be seen now is if Trump will be required to report that steaming pile of garbage “journalism” to the FEC as an in-kind donation to his re-election campaign.

Progressive genius! Seattle to raise business taxes to fight homelessness

This just in from the “what could possibly go wrong” department:

Imagine living in a liberal bubble so thick you believe businesses not paying high enough taxes is what contributes to making homelessness worse. Unreal:

The council on Monday unanimously backed a compromise tax plan that will charge large businesses about $275 per full-time worker a year. It’s lower than the $500-per-worker tax initially proposed. The tax would begin in 2019 and raise about $48 million a year to pay for affordable housing and homeless services.

The debate over who should pay to solve a housing crisis exacerbated by Seattle’s rapid economic growth comes amid skyrocketing rents and rising homelessness. The Seattle region had the third-highest number of homeless people in the U.S. and saw 169 homeless deaths in 2017.

What genius: “Hey, you know what might help lower the level of homelessness here? Fewer jobs!

GOPer says ‘make America great again’ — Maxine Waters hits the ceiling

As it turns out, “make America great again” does to Maxine Waters what “buffet’s closed, buddy” does to Michael Moore: Trigger an outburst of the highest degree:

You’d think Waters might be more into Trump’s whole “make America great again” message judging by how she supports building a wall (around her own house, that is).

Genius! NY Dem aims to stop ‘promoting gun culture’ by banning archery in schools

Good lord these people are without shame or even a shred of common sense:

One New York lawmaker wants to put a stop to archery programs in schools.

Manhattan Democrat Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal says they promote “gun culture.”

She says she introduced the bill to ban such programs in the state after it was revealed that the Parkland Shooting suspect honed his shooting skills in a marksmanship program at the very school he’s accused of killing 17 people.

Next thing you know she’ll be proposing national bans on “assault bows” and “high-capacity quivers.”

Progs like that aren’t about stopping school shootings, they’re just totalitarian wannabes using “gun violence” as an excuse to act out their deepest ban-happy fantasies. The only thing we need a “ban” on at this point is total idiots in positions of government power.

AWW: Khalid Shaikh Mohammed wants to tell the Senate why CIA director nominee Gina Haspel is wrong for the job

The libs on the Senate Intelligence Committee spent the better part of the Haspel hearing arguing as if they’re defense attorneys for Guantanamo Bay prison detainees so frankly I’d be surprised if some of them didn’t seriously entertain making this happen:

President Trump’s nomination of Gina Haspel to lead the C.I.A. has revived debate over the agency’s post-Sept. 11 interrogation program and still-murky questions about her involvement. Now, on the eve of her Senate confirmation hearing, a striking voice is trying to join that fray: Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.

Mr. Mohammed, the principal architect of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, was captured in March 2003 and tortured by the C.I.A. This week, he asked a military judge at Guantánamo Bay for permission to share six paragraphs of information about Ms. Haspel with the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Ms. Haspel ran a black-site prison in Thailand where another high-level detainee was tortured in late 2002. But it is not known whether she was involved, directly or indirectly, in Mr. Mohammed’s torture. Mr. Mohammed was held in secret C.I.A. prisons in Afghanistan and Poland.

Frankly I’m a little surprised that Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein and other Dems on the panel hyperventilating over Haspel’s nomination haven’t invited Mohammed up from Club Gitmo to share his emotions with the Senate and possibly give him a chance to join the call for Trump’s impeachment.

Michelle Obama weeps for women who aren’t empowered enough to vote exactly the way she tells them to

Liberal women like Michelle Obama who accuse other women of not being “empowered” for refusing to march in lock-step with the Left should have their pictures in the psychology dictionary under “projection.” Get a load of this pile of BS that’s less appetizing than one of her school lunches:

Defeating Hillary Clinton is awesome for women… when Michelle’s husband does it. But when Trump defeats the same woman with the help of female voters, suddenly we have a five-alarm feminism fire and America’s on the verge of sliding back to the pre-suffrage days.

Michelle Obama doesn’t want independent thinking women — quite the opposite — and you can see it in that video that just drips of contempt for those who don’t do exactly what the identity politics pushers say. She probably would have called women who voted for Trump “deplorables” but Hillary’s got the copyright on that.
