The earth is flat; FEMA is controlled by shape-shifting reptilians; water additives are turning the freaking frogs gay… Conspiracy theories used to be the preserve of hippies and kooks, but now the Democratic party wants in.
Although Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report has put to pasture the idea that President Donald Trump conspired with Russia to steal the 2016 election, there’s something about the ‘Russiagate’ conspiracy that just won’t die. For the Democratic Party and its cheerleaders and supporters in the media, the Russians are still the sinister force behind everything bad and rotten in American politics.
In the free-form, roller derby race for the Democratic presidential nomination, few candidates are better positioned than California’s Senator Kamala Harris. She is a fresh and attractive mid-fifties face, compared with septuagenarian frontrunners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, or the aging progressive Elizabeth Warren. Part Asian-Indian, part Afro-Caribbean, and female, Harris seems the frontrunner in the intersectionality sweepstakes that currently largely defines Democratic politics. Yet the national obsession with ethnicity and novelty obscures the more important reality: Harris is also the favored candidate of the tech and media oligarchy now almost uniformly aligned with the Democratic Party. She has been a hit in all the important places—the Hamptons, Hollywood, and Silicon Valley—that financed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.
The Pentagon should draft all “genders,” not just men and women, according to New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
She casually spotlighted her revolutionary rejection of biology, sex, and the male-or-female society during a live Facebook chat in which she was asked about her views on the military draft. “As long as we have a draft, I support people of all genders being drafted,” she said.
The Senate roundly rejected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal as expected on Tuesday with not a single senator voting ‘yes’ for the progressive star’s signature policy initiative.
Ocasio-Cortez defended herself after the defeat and argued she encouraged the Democratic senators to vote ‘present’ instead of in the affirmative.
Attorney General William Barr announced Sunday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller found that President Trump’s campaign did not collude with Russia or Russian agents during the 2016 election, but some diehards are continuing to push the narrative that there was collusion.
“Of course Trump colluded with Russia,” the New York Magazine‘s Jonathan Chait wrote on Sunday, arguing unequivocally that there really was collusion, but that it did not rise to the level of criminality.
My dearest Alexandria,
I love you. I love you platonically, unconditionally, and without reservations. My adoration for you knows no bounds. Alexandria, you are the best thing that’s happened to us since California politicians four times your age discovered Botox.
Back in 2018, you expressed strong opinions about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. From your confused babbling about the “occupation of Palestine” and “two-state solutions,” it was fairly clear that you had no idea who was doing what to whom over there. I knew right there and then that, even though you and I will never meet, our destinies were intertwined.
A new profile piece from The Washington Post on Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke documented multiple instances of highly disturbing behavior from the failed Senate candidate, including eating dirt and taking poop from his kid’s diaper and putting it into a bowl and telling his wife that it was an avocado.
Online feminist, transgender, and other intersectionality-inclined communities have seemingly begun to faction. With so much uncertainty surrounding the definition of “woman,” questions are naturally arising about the definition of appropriate feminism. Do trans women count? What about women who choose to sell sex? Ask too many of these questions, however, and you’ll likely be excommunicated from the conversation entirely.
…So it was no surprise that when Omar was asked to define Donald Trump, she quipped that he’s less than human.
Typical of the bad vibrations we’ve come to expect from that Somali ingrate. Mogadishu is in the House and we saw the squalor of it in the movie “Black Hawk Down.”
What is strange about the new envisioned progressive agendas for 2020 is that no serious Democratic presidential candidate next year could ever run on them.
Instead, what we will see over the next few months are insidious efforts to ignore, disown, or recant endorsements of Democratic candidates for president. And if not, Democrats will be trapped by their own rhetoric and virtue signaling—and end up going the full McGovern in 2020.
When “Compassion” Is Contempt
The Washington legislature is one step closer to legalizing homeless encampments statewide. Last week, Democratic lawmakers passed through committee legislation, introduced by Representative Mia Gregerson, that would usurp the authority of city governments and legalize camping in all “plazas, courtyards, parking lots, sidewalks, public transportation facilities, public buildings, shopping centers, parks, [and] natural and wildlife areas” throughout the state.
Let’s be crystal-clear about this right up front: I am both Jewish and conservative. I vote Republican most of the time because Republican candidates usually support the conservative positions and ideals that I favor.
As can be expected, my conservative leanings have put me at odds with the vast majority of my family and childhood friends. The public-school district in my Connecticut town was 80% Jewish, so almost all my school friends from elementary school right through my high school graduation in 1972 were Jewish. Because of various annual reunions and other activities and organizations, I am still in close, frequent contact with several of my Jewish public-school friends today. Even the college I went to — Boston University, BU for short — was nicknamed “Be Jew,” because of its high concentration of Jewish students, its student body fed from many upper-middle-class NY and NE suburbs with large Jewish populations.
So you can see my upbringing was among the “automatically Democratic/liberal” mindset that dominated Jewish households in the 1960s and 1970s.
As media allies idealize House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her congressional Democrats “shaping the future” on the cover of Rolling Stone, the reality in the Democrat-led Congress is quite a bit uglier.
The Green New Deal blueprint introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was crafted by three far-left organizations and is being pushed by a coalition of well-funded professional progressive groups and known leftist agitators.
Some of the organizations helping to promote the Green New Deal have ties to financing from billionaire George Soros and trace their roots to such radical groups as Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter.
Freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasion-Cortez compared President Donald Trump’s long-promised border wall to the Berlin Wall during a livestream for her supporters on Friday, complaining about the level of public scrutiny her celebrity has generated.
‘No matter how you feel about the wall, I think it’s a moral abomination,’ the 29-year-old New York Democrat said. ‘I think it’s like the Berlin Wall.’
The Berlin Wall stood from 1961 to 1989 as a Soviet-manded barrier between East and West Berlin, and came to symbolize the Cold War ‘Iron Curtain’ that separated communist Eastern European countries from the democratic West.
