I think we should start a democrat “bucket challenge!”

You know…, similar to the ice bucket challenge that was a big thing on social media the last couple of years.

53601157.jpg

By definition, “the ice bucket challenge is an activity involving the dumping of a bucket of ice and water over a person’s head, either by another person or self-administered, to promote awareness of a certain cause or issue.”

“The challenge encourages nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same.”

“A common stipulation is that nominated participants have 24 hours to comply with the challenge or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.”

For all of the democrats out there who think it’s okay to belittle and demonize our police officers, our immigration officers (ICE) and our border patrol officers, I challenge you to experience “the bucket!”

If you’re a democrat who has been a driving force or an accomplice in the public humiliation of many of our police officers, who may have the toughest job in the world by the way…, I challenge you to walk down a street in your community while people are allowed to dump water over your head and laugh at you.

Since these officers were “dumped on” while doing their jobs, perhaps people should be allowed to walk into your offices and douse you while you’re in there doing whatever it is you do?

That sounds fair, doesn’t it?

I mean…, expressing your first amendment rights is expressing your first amendment rights…, right?

Right!

Right off the bat, let’s challenge Mayor Bill De Blasio, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the other three members of her “squad,” presidential candidate Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, along with all of the mayors who have declared their cities to be sanctuary cities, undermining the efforts of federal ICE officers.

Ya…, that would be a good start…, but just a start.

Let’s spread the word and get this idea rolling!

Now those would be videos worth watching!

All the Dems are Kung Fu fighting…, their tongues are fast as lightning!

What we’ve been seeing is that, apparently, a white person cannot be a “true” liberal, and that it’s okay for one liberal to drop the race card on another liberal…, if that other liberal happens to be white.

A couple of weeks ago we had Kamala Harris insinuating that Joe Biden had demonstrated racist behavior in the past…, and now we hear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accusing Nancy Pelosi of discriminating against and singling out some of the house representatives of color.

Interesting.

This is much better than watching “The Young and the Restless,” or “As the World Turns!”

Scott Jennings of USA Today says, “The Democratic Party is a mess.”

“If we learned anything lately it is that the Democratic Party is an absolute mess.

Fault lines are deeper than ever between the young socialists and the old establishment figures who run the place.”

Aka, “The Squad” and the “term limits poster child,” Nancy Pelosi.

mess 3

Additionally, “At the first primary debate, Harris assailed Biden for opposing federally mandated busing, an extremely unpopular policy among people of all races and political parties. Debate viewers were left to believe that Harris — who emotionally attributed busing to her getting a quality education — supported the federal mandates.”

mess 12

Harris also said on the debate stage that she, “would eliminate all private insurance,” and then the next day said she, “wouldn’t.”

“The prospect of nominating an old white male for president continues to deeply divide the Democratic Party, and the Woke Folk (at least the ones not supporting Bernie Sanders) are desperate for someone — anyone — to destroy America’s elderly political patriarchy. Policy, principle, and experience are irrelevant — race, gender or sexual orientation are the only credentials required to satisfy the angry [liberal democrat] mob.”

The House speaker recently gave an interview to the New York Times in which she cast aspersions on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three other young Democratic women of color who criticized her for giving in on the Senate border funding bill.

mess 2

Though she didn’t mention them by name, Pelosi was referring to Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, in addition to Ocasio-Cortez. Otherwise known as “The Squad,” or “AOC plus three.”

‘“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,’ Pelosi said. ‘But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.’”

“Insulting AOC’s ‘Twitter world’ is to the “Woke” Folk what a good ‘yo mama’ joke was to my friends on the school playground. Predictably, AOC punched right back at Pelosi, calling the speaker’s legislative moves ‘a huge mistake.’”

In case your wondering, “woke” is a trendy and relative new term used among our liberal friends which means,  “having an awareness of issues concerning social justice and racial justice.”  “Woke people are allowed to point fingers at all the rest of us “deplorables.”

According to Veronica Stracqualursi, Manu Raju and Sunlen Serfaty of CNN, “Ocasio-Cortez calls Pelosi’s ‘singling out’ of Democratic women of color ‘disrespectful’”

‘“It’s really just pointing out the pattern, right? We’re not talking about just progressives, it’s signaling out four individuals,’ Ocasio-Cortez told CNN on Capitol Hill. ‘And knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration detention, I think it’s just worth asking why.’”

What?

And no, we don’t know the amount of “death threats” you get, or from who.

And what does “concentration detention have to do with any of this?

And how do you “signal out” people?

I’m assuming she means “singling out” people.

mess 1

mess 5

BUT, when asked if she thinks Pelosi has racial animus or is racist, Ocasio-Cortez said unequivocally, “No, no, absolutely not, absolutely not.”

Ha!

Well, then what were you exactly saying Alexandria?

I mean, we all have ears, we all understand English, and we all heard you basically call Speaker Pelosi a racist…, whether you want to come right out and it or not.

Then…, Democrat Rep. Lacy Clay of Missouri accused Ocasio-Cortez of using “the race card” in her comments to the Post.

mess 10

‘“What a weak argument,’ Clay said. ‘Because you can’t get your way, and because you are -, you’re getting pushback, you resort to use the race card? Unbelievable. Unbelievable to me.’”

OH – MY – GOD!!!

Wait…, let me read that again.

Are you kidding me?!!!

Democrats do this all day, every day, to conservatives…, but that’s okay?

But it’s “unbelievable” and “weak” when a democrat resorts to this when dealing with another democrat.

Does the hypocrisy know no bounds?!

Representative Clay then added, “It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.  It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that (trope) is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion,” according to Sam Dorman and Chad Pergram of Fox News.

Ooooh, “level of ignorance.”  That’s a good one!

And again…, “It has no place in a civil discussion,” UNLESS they’re dealing with conservatives.

The far left wing of the democrat party has just adjusted their parameters.  Democrat moderates to them are now on the same level that conservatives are to democrat moderates.

Ha!  Isn’t it funny how that works now?

“The lawmaker closed his remarks by suggesting the four freshmen could hurt Democratic chances in upcoming elections.”

Oh, we can only hope Representative Lacy, we can only hope!

We’ll all tune in next week for the continuing saga of “The Young and the Restless” meets “All My Children!”

WINNING!

He’s in a “squad,” she’s in a “squad,” we’re in a “squad,” wouldn’t you like to be in a “squad” too?!

We’ve been hearing a lot lately about “The Squad,” but what exactly is its deal and what’s going on with it?

squad 7

As usual, MrEricksonRules is here to clear things up and give you an unadulterated view of the situation.

By definition…, a “squad” is a small group of people trained to work together as a unit.

Most “squads” have a name, like a firing squad, a death squad, a cheerleading squad, a military squad, a police squad, a suicide squad, a practice squad, the “Geek Squad,” a rifle squad, the “Mod squad,” a bomb squad, a rescue squad, for example.

squad 9

squad 8

squad 6

squad 3

squad 5

squad 4

Now we have four of our freshmen congress women who have deemed themselves “THE SQUAD.”

That alone is pretty bold. It’s actually pretty ignorant and self-aggrandizing for them to believe they are worthy to be members of “THE SQUAD.”

“The Squad,” according to its own members, supposedly form a unified front to push for progressive changes such as a socialistic form of government, the Green New Deal, Medicare-for-all (including illegal immigrants) and open borders, while opposing support for Israel, Christianity, and anything that could be construed as traditionally “American” or patriotic.

The members of “The Squad” are Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

squad 1

Okay…, so now we know what “The Squad” is.

Now what’s all of the commotion about “The Squad” as of late?

Well, it started when they basically accused Nancy Pelosi of discriminating against them and because they were people of color.  By definition, that’s accusing her of being a racist, isn’t it?

Pelosi then got into a twitter battle with them…, and not to be outdone, President Trump had to enter the fray.

He has since been accused of being a racist…, again, and a sexist…, again.

Rather than interpreting what The President said, and telling you what to think about it, like “The Squad” and the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” along with the rest of “the swamp…,” we’re going to just look at what The President tweeted, so you can decide for yourself.

First he tweeted:

“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.”

Then he tweeted:

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

He then responded to reporters at the White House by saying that, “If somebody has a problem with our country, if somebody doesn’t want to be in our country, they should leave.”

“When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said?” The President added.

“They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, ‘some people did something.’ Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more.”

“Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!”

“We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE! It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country….”

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)

So there you have the actual tweets from The President.

Can you see why they’re blasting him for being a racist?

Can you see why they’re blasting him for being a sexist?

Hmmm, I really don’t see it either.

I can see where he’s challenging their politics and their ideas, but I don’t see racism or sexism there.

I just see four anti-American liberal democrats who can’t defend their radical narrative, so they just lazily accuse The President as being racist and sexist in order to deflect the attention away from themselves, while attempting to devalue his remarks.

If you want to, you can “see” racist and sexist intonations in “Mary had a Little Lamb,” “Baa Baa, Black Sheep,” and what about “The House that Jack Built?”

He didn’t build that!

Sorry…, I couldn’t resist.

Rebecca Morin, of USA TODAY, reported that, “On Monday afternoon, the lawmakers responded to Trump’s comments in a press conference on Capitol Hill.  Pressley said the president’s recent comments were just a ‘disruptive distraction’ from a ‘callous, chaotic and corrupt’ administration.”

“Omar accused Trump of pursuing a ‘white nationalist’ agenda.”

Excuse me, but isn’t that a racist remark?  Just sayin’.

“While the congresswomen were speaking, Trump continued to tweet about them, ‘The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” [The Squad], but now they are forced to embrace them,’ The President wrote. ‘That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!’”

‘“THIS is what racism looks like,’ Pressley tweeted.  “WE are what democracy looks like. And we’re not going anywhere. Except back to DC to fight for the families you marginalize and vilify every day.’”

Isn’t this a racist calling out President Trump for racism?

Why does everything always have to come down to what someone “looks” like instead of what they stand for?

“Omar, who has been criticized by Republicans several times due to controversial comments she made about Israel, also criticized Trump’s online postings and Trump himself.  ‘Mr. President, As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States,’ she tweeted Sunday. ‘Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen.’”

‘“Want a response to a lawless & complete failure of a President?’ Tlaib tweeted. ‘He is the crisis. His dangerous ideology is the crisis. He needs to be impeached.’”

Yes…, and in your oath you swear to uphold the laws of our country…, the laws that you are in charge of establishing.  Yet you encourage other politicians and illegal immigrants to ignore and break our laws.

“Ocasio-Cortez, who is a self-described Democratic Socialist, tweeted a thread responding to the president, saying that Trump is ‘angry because you can’t conceive of an America that includes us.’”

It’s not YOU Ms. Ocasio-Cortez…, it’s your dangerous socialist ideas that worry him.

‘“You rely on a frightened America for your plunder,’ she tweeted. ‘You won’t accept a nation that sees healthcare as a right or education as a #1 priority, especially where we’re the ones fighting for it. Yet here we are.’”

What?  AOC’s level of confusion is truly impressive.

It is the democrats who have traditionally employed “scare tactics” with seniors, women, minorities and the underprivileged in general.

Now…, adding insult to injury…, Chad Pergram and Frank Miles of Fox News report that, “House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., was seeking extra protection for members of Congress [from Senate Sergeant at Arms, Michael Stenger] on Monday after President Trump’s tweets and remarks about the ‘progressive squad.’”

“In the letter for House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving and Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger, Thompson argued that the Capitol Police Board should meet to ‘analyze the current threat environment and set thresholds for enhanced safety of Members.’”

Well isn’t that special!

Yes…, by all means…, let’s all be concerned about “enhanced security” for our “open borders” congress people who have no concern about the security of their American citizen constituents, when it comes to letting anyone and everyone into our country, and then fighting to keep illegal immigrant criminals in our country by opposing federal law officers when they try and do their jobs to protect American citizens.

Only in America.

Goodness gracious AOC’s such a liar!

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “Current and former immigration officials pushed back Tuesday at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (AOC’s) high-profile accusations of cruel treatment at an El Paso border station, rejecting her claim that agents forced detainees to ‘drink out of the toilets’ and insisting that their personnel ‘don’t treat people that way.’”

“Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., traveled to the border on Monday with almost a dozen members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, as she blasted border officials as “violent” and “inhumane” — while claiming agents forced migrant women and children being detained in cells to drink toilet water.”

aoc 18

Never mind the fact that AOC and her democrat friends have routinely voted against any bills in the house that would offer any type of support or aid to these centers which are ridiculously over-crowded, day in and day out.

‘“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is intentionally misinforming the public about migrant detention centers,’ former ICE acting director and Fox News contributor Tom Homan said.  ‘It’s ridiculous to accuse Border Patrol agents of having migrants drink toilet water.’”

‘“She’s lost all credibility,’ he said.”

aoc 17

“Homan suggested she was simply referring to the ‘apparatus’ in holding cells that has an attached sink and toilet, but two separate water lines.  ‘You’re drinking out of the same apparatus, the same piece of equipment, but there are two separate water lines—one going to the commode, one going to the sink,’ Homan explained. ‘… [T]hey are designed that way to try to save space and make it more comfortable for the people who are in those facilities.’”

aoc 2

“Homan acknowledged that the facilities ‘are jails after all’ and ‘were not built for women and children,’ saying that’s why agents have been ‘begging’ Congress for more funding for beds ‘so these families can be moved into a proper facility with proper care.’”

“Former acting ICE director Ron Vitiello also pushed back on Ocasio-Cortez’s claims.”

‘“I have never seen anything like that,’ Vitiello said on ‘Fox & Friends.’ ‘And look, she was there for three minutes and now she’s an expert on what this facility looks like?’”

aoc 13

“Brian Hastings, chief of law enforcement operations at U.S. Border Patrol, similarly defended the agents.”

‘“We don’t treat people that way. We provide fresh water. We provide food. We provide sanitary items as well as items for bathing and personal hygiene,’ Hastings said on Fox News’ ‘The Story’ Monday night.”

This seems like just the latest example of AOC fabricating, exaggerating and manipulating reality in order to fit her own narrative and while attempting to justify her own actions and behavior.

aoc 7

On that note (pun intended)…, here’s my ode to the socialist democrat congresswoman from New York City…, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortz!

(Sung to the song “Great Balls of Fire,” by Jerry Lee Lewis)

 

You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain

Too much of you drives a person insane

You speak at will, oh what a thrill

Goodness gracious AOC’s such a liar!

 

You learned to love all that Hollywood money

You spend all day tryin’ to trick them honey

You’ve lost your mind, kiss my behind

Goodness gracious AOC’s such a liar!

 

Your funky Green Deal baby, wooo, it’s a joke

Lie to me baby, learn to let me laugh at you like everyone should

You’re dumb, ho hum

Goodness gracious AOC’s such a liar!

 

I bite my tongue and I twiddle my thumbs

We’re gettin’ nervous and this sure ain’t fun

Come on baby, you drive us crazy

Goodness gracious AOC’s such a liar!

Woof! Woof! Campaign finance laws…, all bark and no bite.

Let’s make no mistake about it…, politicians and political groups are ALL about the money.  And it doesn’t really matter what party they’re affiliated with.

When we hear all of this blustery talk regarding “campaign finance reform” every so often, their proposals are all just shams that pretend to actually do something, but in reality they have no effect on the flow of money at all.

In this case, were talking about the flow of what is referred to as “dark money.”

“Dark money” is referred to as “dark money” because the actual donors/investors remain comfortably and anonymously in the shadows.

dark money 1

What we have here is the discovery of an entire “dark money” network supporting liberal causes.

dark money 4

According to Adam Shaw for Fox News, “An expansive network of ‘shadowy’ dark money donors has [been uncovered which is] pumping millions into left-wing causes ranging from health care to climate change to abortion, all while flying well under the radar of public scrutiny, according to an explosive new report obtained by Fox News.”

“The report, by conservative watchdog Capital Research Center, describes a band of nonprofits operating under the banner of Washington-based philanthropy company Arabella Advisors. Those ‘pop up groups’ are housed in four Arabella-controlled ‘sister’ nonprofits, according to the report: The New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, Hopewell Fund and Windward Fund.”

‘“Together, these groups form an interlocking network of ‘dark money’ pop-up groups and other fiscally sponsored projects, all afloat in a half-billion-dollar ocean of cash,’ the report says. ‘The real puppeteer, though, is Arabella Advisors, which has managed to largely conceal its role in coordinating so much of the professional Left’s infrastructure under a mask of ‘philanthropy.’”

“The report says the ‘hydra-like’ network brought in $1.6 billion between 2013 and 2017 ‘to advance the political policies desired by wealthy left-wing interests,’ as the network’s revenues grew by 392 percent. The four Arabella-controlled ‘sister’ groups brought in $582 million in 2017 alone, according to the report. If the four groups were a single entity, it would make them the 22nd largest public charity in America, with higher revenues than the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Planned Parenthood or the Clinton Foundation.”

‘“The size and scope of the Arabella network of funds demonstrates far more ‘dark money’ exists on the left side of the political spectrum than has been previously admitted,’ the report says.”

Uh…, yeah…, especially since nothing is ever “admitted!”

dark money 5

The name “Arabella” means “yielding to prayer,” by the way.  Prayer to who or what would be my only question, as this is definitely not a Godly venture.

“Arabella’s website says the company was founded to ‘provide strategic guidance for effective philanthropy’ and is ‘dedicated to helping clients make a difference on the issues that matter most to them, from climate to women and girls, education, good food, and more.’ All told, the company represents clients with collective assets totaling more than $100 Billion.”

That’s $100 Billion with a “B!”

“But the report alleges the group blurs the line between philanthropy and political advocacy on issues such as ObamaCare, gun control, abortion and opposition to the confirmation of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. And it says that due to the financial arrangements and lack of donor disclosure, ‘it is impossible to know which organization subsidizes the various campaigns and political movements spawned by Arabella’s funds.’”

And that’s just the way they like it.

“The company was founded by Eric Kessler, who has worked both in the Clinton administration, where he managed conservation issues, and as a member of the Clinton Global Initiative. He also founded the New Venture Fund and is on the board of the Sixteen Thirty Fund.”

Well, there you have it.

That’s all we needed to know.

Arabella was founded by someone who has worked in the Clinton Administration and the Clinton Global Initiative.

A true pedigree in crookedness and underhandedness.

“Arabella did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News.”

Reeeeeally?!

“The report claims the group runs a network of ‘astroturf’ [referring to apparent grassroots-based citizen groups or coalitions] activities including as many as 340 ‘pop up’ groups, which the report says are often little more than websites created to give the appearance of grassroots campaigns. It cites the organization’s activities pushing back against Republican efforts to repeal and replace ObamaCare as an example of its political activism.”

‘“At a glance, these groups, such as Save My Care and Protect Our Care, appeared to be impassioned examples of citizen activists defending ObamaCare,’ the report says. ‘In reality, neither “not-for-profit” advocacy group appears to have paid staff, held board meetings, or even owned so much as a pen.’”

“Consequently, the report says, the groups can be used to run ‘short-term, high intensity media campaigns targeting the news cycle’ such as during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing. The report gave the example of activists, led by Demand Justice, waving glossy ‘Stop Kavanaugh’ signs in protest of the conservative nominee’s confirmation.”

“Demand Justice, led by former Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon, is very active on judicial issues, and is more than just a website.

There’s that “Clinton” reference again!

Liberal mega-donor George Soros and his Democracy Alliance group pop-up as well in association with the Sixteen Thirty Fund and the New Venture Fund.

dark money 3

It’s just one more bit of evidence which demonstrates the un-holiness of these alliances.

Stay thirsty (for the truth) my friends!

The truth is out there, and the truth shall set you free!

My reaction to some recent headlines about the Electoral College, AOC and the 22nd Amendment, DNC Chair calls Republican lawmakers “cowardly,” Joe Biden’s behavior with women, and did the NY Times and The Washington Post help elect President Trump!?

There are so many topics I’d like to offer my insight on, but so little time!

Welcome to my first crack at the “MrEricksonRules headline buffet line!”

Pick your favorite(s) or have some of each.  It’s totally up to you.

<<<<<<<*>>>>>>>

Senate democrats introduce measure to abolish Electoral College.

“Would election by popular vote be better than the Electoral College?”

“A group of Democratic senators on Tuesday introduced a measure to do away with the Electoral College, picking up on a talking point that has caught fire in the 2020 Democratic presidential field.”

“According to NBC News: ‘Leading Democratic senators are expected to introduce a constitutional amendment Tuesday to abolish the Electoral College, adding momentum to a long-shot idea that has been gaining steam among 2020 presidential candidates.’”

“…changing the Constitution is seen as virtually impossible today. A constitutional amendment may be proposed by a two-thirds supermajority in both the House (about 290 votes) and Senate (67 votes) and requires ratification by 38 states.”

As is usually the case with the democrat party, what we have here is either disingenuous political grandstanding, uninformed ignorance, or a combination of the two.  I’m going to give them some credit and say it’s disingenuous political grandstanding for the most part, since actually amending the Constitution would never happen, mostly due to the requirement of having 38 states go along with it.

So…, in the grand scheme of things, it’s kind of like “The Green New Deal,” a bunch of noise that ain’t never going to happen.

Andrew O’Reilly of Fox News contributed.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Liz Cheney disagree over knowledge of 22nd Amendment, Constitution.

“[Liz] Cheney, R-WY, took issue with a comment [Alexandria] Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, made during a recent MSNBC town hall event in which the freshman congresswoman talked about Democrats being in control of Congress in the 1930s and 1940s.”

‘“When our party was boldest, the time of the New Deal, the Great Society, the Civil Rights Act and so on, we had, and carried, supermajorities in the House, in the Senate. We carried the presidency,’ she told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.”

‘“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure (President Franklin D.) Roosevelt did not get reelected,’ Ocasio-Cortez continued.”

“In response to Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks, Cheney tweeted: ‘We knew the Democrats let dead people vote. According to AOC, they can run for president too!’”

“The New Yorker then fired off her own response. ‘Hey Rep. Cheney, I see from your dead people comment that you get your news from Facebook memes, but the National Constitution Center + Newsweek are just two of many places where you can clarify your misunderstanding of the history of the 22nd Amendment,’ she wrote.”

“Roosevelt died while in office in 1945 and the 22nd Amendment was proposed by Congress in 1947.  The Amendment reads, “No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some of other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once.”

I think we can safely score this:

Representative Liz Cheney………..ONE

Representative Ocasio-Cortez…….ZERO

DNC Chair Tom Perez calls Republican lawmakers “cowardly,” says they will be “judged harshly” by history

“Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez launched a stunning attack on Republican lawmakers, saying history will “judge” them for supporting President Trump.”

What’s so “stunning” about that?  I hear much worse on a daily basis directed at President Trump, republicans and various conservatives.

‘“The reason why we [Democrats] are winning, and we won at scale in 2018, is because our message is clear. Our message was: we are the ones who actually have your back on the issues that really matter. Healthcare, education. He said he had your back, but actually he had a knife in your back,’ Perez said.”

The truth is the democrats under performed in the 2018 midterms, and by any measure we can say the democrats do not “have our back.”  The democrats, most recently led by Barack Obama, sold America and Americans out.  They gave away our jobs, our wealth, our respect around the world, and our American soul.

“The DNC chair continued that President Trump found success in 2016 by putting ‘fear on the ballot,’ and that Republican lawmakers who have supported his policies over the last three years are ‘cowards’ who have allowed damage to be done to their part.”

That’s a good one Tom!  The democrats are historically the party of fear.  How many times have we heard “the republicans will gut social security,” due to the republicans, millions will die without healthcare, our children will starve and grandma will be left out on the street!?

We didn’t need President Trump to “put fear on the ballot” in 2016, we were all scared already that our country was going down the drain. And rightly so.

‘“I mean, history will not only judge Donald Trump harshly. It will judge Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan and all the other cowards who refused to stand up to this president and allowed the party of Lincoln to die. They will be judged harshly because whatever he says goes right now.’”

I feel more correctly, “history” will judge these times as the times of the great liberal lies.  The times of liberal propaganda and the times of the corrupt and biased media who backed them up rather than do their jobs as watchdogs for We the People.

Pelosi: Biden didn’t know “the world we’re in now.”

“House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi is the most high-profile Democrat to come to the defense of former Vice President Joe Biden’s ‘affectionate demeanor,’ Peter Doocy reports from Washington.”

Ha! “Affectionate demeanor!?”  Is that what we’re calling “Uncle Joe’s” creepy behavior now?

And according to Politico (a news journalism company), “Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that she does not think the allegations against Joe Biden of unwelcome contact are disqualifying for a 2020 run, but that the former vice president should be more aware of others’ personal space. ‘I don’t think it’s disqualifying,’ Pelosi said… ‘He has to understand in the world that we’re in now that people’s space is important to them, and what’s important is how they receive it and not necessarily how you intended it.’ … Pelosi pushed back against the tone of former vice president’s apologies. ‘It is how it’s received, so to say, ‘I’m sorry that you were offended’ is not an apology,’ the California Democrat said. ‘‘I’m sorry I invaded your space,’ but not, ‘I’m sorry you were offended.’ What’s that? That’s not accepting the fact that people think differently about communication.’”

I’m a little confused.  Is she coming to Joe’s defense or is she scolding him?

National Public Radio (NPR) noted, “On the most obvious level, complaints of this kind renew the criticism of Biden’s past performance on issues affecting women and people of color, the two constituencies likely to matter most in choosing the next Democratic nominee.”

As usual with the democrats, us poor white guys are treated like second class citizens.

“Perceptions of Biden as ‘old school’ or ‘old fashioned’ are not just liabilities to be shed. They are also the basis of his appeal to many older, white, working-class Democrats and independents.”

The democrat party can say what they want about the new breed of democrat-socialists out there; Joe Biden leads in the polls for president, and he hasn’t even officially declared yet!

“Biden’s advisers believe coverage of allegations of inappropriate behavior is being stoked by rival Democrats…”

No kidding.

That basically leaves one guy…, and I can hear ‘em now, Bernie, Bernie, Bernie.

New York Post: How the New York Times, Washington Post helped get Trump elected.

“If either paper had done the sort of digging on Hillary Clinton that they did on Trump, then Clinton would never have been the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.”

True.  And actually, “If either paper had done the sort of digging on Hillary Clinton that they did on Trump,” she would be in jail, along with a lot of her friends.

“So, in a different scenario, if the Times and the Washington Post probe Clinton, alert the public to all of her ‘problems’ then the Democrats are forced to pick someone else as their candidate.  In that case, Trump might not have won.”

In reality, Mr. Crudele, anything “might” have happened.  It really annoys me these days when reporters say, “this might happen,” or that “could happen,” or this “may” happen.

Here’s some news for all of you journalism majors: ANYTHING “MIGHT,”  “COULD,” OR “MAY” HAPPEN!  THAT’S NOT NEWS!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez…, yes…, you are an idiot.

Patrick Moore, the co-founder of the environmentalist group “Greenpeace,” ripped into New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over the weekend, calling her a “pompous little twit,” and saying the Green New Deal plan she’s advocating is “completely crazy.”

aoc

This is a damning statement coming from someone who is a legit and historically important environmentalist.

For nearly 50 years, Greenpeace has been sailing the world’s oceans protecting our planet and fighting for environmental justice.  From obstructing nuclear tests in the Pacific, to documenting plastics in our oceans; from conducting research into the effects of climate change in the Arctic, to stopping shiploads of illegal timber leaving the Amazon; from bringing humanitarian relief to communities devastated by extreme weather to collaborating with local authorities to arrest illegal fishing operations.

According to Alex Pappas of Fox News, “In a series of tweets, Moore argued Ocasio-Cortez, who has called for drastically reducing fossil fuel production, doesn’t realize what would happen across the world if the radical plan were implemented.”

‘“If fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating,’ Moore said in a tweet Saturday directed at Ocasio-Cortez. ‘You would bring about mass death.’”

“Referring to the New York Democrat as a ‘pompous little twit,’ Moore said, ‘You don’t have a plan to grow food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels, or get food into the cities.’”

“Moore also unloaded on her for calling climate change ‘“Our World War II.’”

‘“It’s her @GND [Green New Deal] that would be worse than WW2,” he said. ‘Imagine no fuel for cars, trucks, tractors, combines, harvesters, power-plants, ships, aircraft, etc. Transport of people & goods would grind to a halt.’”

“In another tweet, Moore called the Green New Deal ‘so completely crazy it is bound to be rejected in the end.’”

“He also referred to Ocasio-Cortez as a ‘garden-variety hypocrite,’ in response to a New York Post story that said the democrat frequently used gas-guzzling Uber and Lyft rides during her 2018 campaign instead of taking the subway station near her campaign office.”

‘“You’re just a garden-variety hypocrite like the others. And you have ZERO expertise at any of the things you pretend to know,’ Moore said.”

“Ocasio-Cortez responded to that story over the weekend saying she’s ‘living in the world as it is.’ But she said that shouldn’t be ‘an argument against working towards a better future.’”

It’s all a matter of perspective I guess.

Nobody is opposed to working towards a better future, unless your method of doing that destroys our future!

‘“The Green New Deal is about putting a LOT of people to work in developing new technologies, building new infrastructure, and getting us to 100% renewable energy,’ she said.”

Is there anything stopping the development of new technologies now?

Is there anything stopping the building of new infrastructure now?

The sticking point is that last one about “getting us to 100% renewable energy.”  It’s just not realistic.  Especially when she wants the United States to be “emissions free” in 10 years.

This is because she is predicting “our world will end in 12 years if we don’t change our ways.”

Her plan of course doesn’t take into consideration any other country on our planet…, just the United States, and we are already one of the best performing countries in the world regarding pollution and emissions.

I would agree with Patrick Moore that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez has no basis for her claims and no common sense regarding her “Green New Deal” demands.

Why the democrats would allow a “know nothing” idiot like Ocasio-Cortez to drive their environmental and economic agenda is beyond me.

On the other hand, I guess that’s just the way the democrats are doing business these days.  They are choosing to appeal to the lowest common denominator.
