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."
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.

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:
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!“
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.
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.
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.
