I’m not even quite sure what to make of this, except that the president who pledged to “fundamentally transform America” in 2008 didn’t quite get the job done and seems a but, er, frustrated:
Anybody want to do the psychology homework behind why he connected people who don’t want to waste money on any more “green jobs” shams that were prevalent during Obama’s presidency and why that amounts to “mommy issues”? Paging Dr. Freud! It isn’t hard to see why Hillary thought that “basket of deplorables” comment would help propel her to the White House — that kind of thing worked for Obama.
I’m going to go ahead and diagnose Obama with a big case of old-fashioned, garden variety “projection.”
We’ve now reached the point in time that future anthropologists will probably dub the “WTF Epoch” as even political correctness is now not politically correct enough. Case in point:
Leaders at a college in Michigan decided to cancel its production of “The Vagina Monologues” because it’s discriminatory, given “not all women have vaginas.”
The women’s resource center at Eastern Michigan University put the kibosh on the famous production since it caters only to women who have the physical anatomy that accompanies the female sex, according to The Ann Arbor News.
The decision came after the resource center conducted a survey, asking respondents about “The Vagina Monologues.” Those opposed to the drama said they were concerned about the fact that the production excludes some women, namely those who don’t have vaginas.
Like a dying star, political correctness expanded and became super bright and is now actually collapsing into itself. Someday it’s possible that we’ll learn the extinction of PC was caused by PC itself.
What a way to tell everybody their government tyranny concerns are unfounded!
Earlier this year, liberal Rep. Eric Swalwell said the only way to solve the “gun violence” problem might be forced confiscation:
Swalwell proposes that the government should offer up to $1,000 for every weapon covered by a new ban, estimating that it would take $15 billion to buy back roughly 15 million weapons — and “criminally prosecute any who choose to defy [the buyback] by keeping their weapons.”
This week, Swalwell obviously had it up to here with critics of his gun grabbing wet dreams by reminding those who are defiant who really has the power:
Yep, there’s no better way for a liberal politician to remind people who want to keep their guns in case the government gets out of control that they’re delusional and paranoid than by threatening to nuke ’em!
As for me, I’m not sure that would make the best angle for winning in 2020.
Swalwell’s presidential campaign in a nutshell:

It seems that reality isn’t cooperating with one of the “we’re all gonna die from man-made climate change” crowd’s most cherished talking points, and they’re not liking it:
Polar bear numbers are so high they threaten native Inuit populations, a controversial Canadian government report has found.
The animals, which have become one of the enduring symbols of the environmental cause, are growing in such numbers that they cannot currently safely co-exist with humans in northern Canada, the report suggested.
But the findings have been bitterly contested by environmental scientists who say that climate change has simply pushed the bears closer to humans as they search for food.
Wildlife experts often use images of emaciated polar bears to show how habitats are coming under threat due to ice shrinking and sea levels rising.
For example just a few months ago footage emerged of a polar bear prowling around on thin ice in the Nunavut territory in the northernmost region in Canada.
Wildlife experts said that the photos showed how the polar bears’ habitat is coming under threat due to human-induced global warming.
However, a new report, drafted by the Nunavut government completely contracts these widely-held claims about declining populations.
The draft report, which is set to be published by the end of this year, claims that polar bear populations are much higher than scientists estimated – and are actually increasing.
If nothing changes the global warming alarmists might find themselves left with no choice but to go up there and start knocking off some polar bears so real life more closely matches their narrative.
So much for “settled,” peer-reviewed “science.”
This article, as well as the “study” cited, should all appear in the dictionary under the definition of “confirmation bias”:
Scientists behind a major study that claimed the Earth’s oceans are warming faster than previously thought now say their work contained inadvertent errors that made their conclusions seem more certain than they actually are.
Two weeks after the high-profile study was published in the journal Nature, its authors have submitted corrections to the publication. The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, home to several of the researchers involved, also noted the problems in the scientists’ work and corrected a news release on its website, which previously had asserted that the study detailed how the Earth’s oceans “have absorbed 60 percent more heat than previously thought.”
“Unfortunately, we made mistakes here,” said Ralph Keeling, a climate scientist at Scripps, who was a co-author of the study. “I think the main lesson is that you work as fast as you can to fix mistakes when you find them.”
Uh oh, the “settled science” denial is coming from inside the house!
Can we now call those same scientists “science deniers”? That’s now it works, right?
The next congressional term doesn’t even start for about seven weeks, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already in DC. Today she was a thorn in the side of Nancy Pelosi, which is absolutely hilarious:
You wanted her, you got her, Democrats! I’m guessing that Pelosi’s going to be swinging at AOC with the Speaker’s gavel before the middle of 2019.
As they say, “pass the popcorn.”
Founders unavailable for comment
Last week, after this scene, the White House pulled the hard pass from CNN’s Chief Resistance Reporter Jim Acosta:
And with that, CNN wrapped Acosta up in a Snuggie made out of copies of the Constitution and filed a lawsuit:
So if I’m understanding the liberal arguments about the Constitution correctly, the Second Amendment doesn’t apply to modern firearms because it was written with muskets in mind, but the First Amendment protects a drama queen cable net reporter from getting kicked out of the White House?
And by the way, Acosta has proven that he doesn’t need a White House pass to keep covering Trump:
I’m guessing the real reason Acosta wants his WH press credentials un-revoked is so CNN can get back to showing more of what Acosta thinks is the important story: Jim Acosta.
Also, CNN gets the vapors when Trump calls them “fake news,” but in their own lawsuit CNN proved why they’ve earned the title:
MORE lies from CNN? Go figure.
In any case, it could be hilarious if this all ended up in court:
Jeff Sessions resigned as Attorney General this week at the behest of President Trump, and a couple of Dems did major flip-flops.
Let’s start with Sen. Kamala Harris from last year:
And Sen. Kamala Harris this week after Sessions was let go:
Let’s move on to the House of Representatives, where Rep. Jerrold Nadler had this opinion of Sessions last year:
And fast forward to this week after Sessions did exactly what Nadler asked him to do:
Their BS is so obvious it’s hilarious.
And repeating DNC talking points aren’t “questions”
Did you see CNN’s Jim Acosta get smacked down after doing his usual shtick at a Trump press conference yesterday? He also tried to keep an aide from taking back the microphone to hand it to somebody else:
For starters, Jim Acosta isn’t a “reporter” because he editorializes constantly, spouting DNC talking points poorly disguised as questions. In any case, the White House yanked Resistance Cronkite’s press credentials:
And with that, many “journalists” (the media have been so ridiculous these last two years the quote marks should be required by law) were defending Acosta on constitutional grounds, starting with the Godfather of Fake News, Dan Rather:
Sorry Dan, but the American press remains as free as it was the day you used your First Amendment right as a reporter to push bogus documents in an attempt to sway a presidential election just days before it took place. Sit down.
Others also weighed in:
Even Jeb Bush got in on the act:
Like I said before, Acosta does not ask questions — he makes political statements on behalf of Democrats. And there is no First Amendment right to grandstand in the White House.
Not long ago I ran across this, and it’s just perfect:
All together now: “JOURNALISM!”
More from the Daily Caller:
Brenda Battel, a reporter for Huron Daily Tribune, left the voicemail on James’s campaign offices phone number at 3:40 PM Monday, requesting the interview for Wednesday, the day after the Nov. 6 midterm elections. In the voicemail, she expresses her interest in interviewing James, believes she hung up the phone, and then goes on to curse about a possible James victory, saying she doesn’t think it will happen.
“Hi, my name is Brenda Battel, I’m a reporter with the Huron Daily Tribune in Bad Axe, Michigan,” Battel said in the voicemail.
“I’m looking to set up an appointment with Mr. James for some time on Wednesday for a phone interview regarding the election results,” Battel continued. “I’m probably going to send an email over to the firstname.lastname@example.org with some details. Um, if you’d like to call me back, my number is … extension … Thank you.”
Battel attempts to hang up after giving her number, but the phone remains connected.
“Man, if he beats her… Jesus! Fucking John James. That would suck! Whew I don’t think it’s going to happen though,” Battel continued.
According to most polls (and 2016 taught everybody how worthless those can be) Stabenow still holds a fairly solid lead over James, but with any luck it turns out the other way just to make some “journalists” heads explode — in a totally objective and unbiased way of course.
