The lie that reelected Obama

The lie that reelected Obama
The previous administration deliberately understated al-Qaeda’s strength in 2012 so President Obama’s worse-than-useless counter-terrorism policy would seem like it was actually working, clearing the way for his easy reelection victory over Republican Mitt Romney, according to new evidence.

Intelligence was just one of the many areas of government activity relentlessly politicized by the Obama administration. In the Obama era, the Departments of Defense, Justice, and Education, to name only a few of the affected federal agencies, were also infested with determined radical ideologues bent on fundamentally transforming American society. Many of the left-wing extremists are still in positions of authority in the government as they undermine President Trump’s policies and directives every day.

Rep. John Conyers accused of sexual harassment, cover-up
It’s becoming impossible to keep up with all the allegations of sexual impropriety being hurled at left-wing men in the public eye.

Now we learn that big-city Sixties radical nutbar nonpareil Congressman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) was accused of sexual harassment and silenced his alleged victim with a nondisclosure agreement as part of a legal settlement.


When did left-wing protesters lose their sense of humor?

Nov 21, 2017 — Matthew Vadum

All these angry leftists today put so much energy into defacing and disfiguring the statues of historical figures they dislike.

It wasn’t always this way.

There was a time when protesters used the power of ridicule to make a point.

For example, right here in Washington, D.C., when activists wanted to protest a statute of Confederate Brigadier General Albert Pike in 1992, they draped the statue in a white sheet and a pointy white hat.

That’s actually kind of funny — at least I think it is.

Nobody was harmed and from what I can tell no damage was done to the statue.

And the target was made to look goofy.

Bingo.

Apple diversity chief thrown overboard for advocating diversity, Denise Young Smith
It is always entertaining watching politically correct left-wingers engaged in intramural disputes.

Denise Young Smith, a black woman who became Apple’s vice president of diversity and inclusion six months ago, ran afoul of the Silicon Valley thought police when she spoke last month at the One Young World Summit in Bogota, Colombia.


Trump DHS nominee demands amnesty

DHS nominee Kirstjen Nielsen
President Trump’s nominee to run the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) doesn’t seem too interested in enforcing the nation’s immigration laws.

At a recent confirmation hearing, she said “we owe” amnesty to the roughly 700,000 illegal aliens now shielded from deportation under President Obama’s constitutionally suspect and soon-to-expire Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.


AL FRANKEN, SEXUAL PREDATOR

AL FRANKEN, SEXUAL PREDATOR
Radio host Leeann Tweeden’s apparently well-founded claim that Democrat Sen. Al Franken, the professional vulgarian and former comedian who has a long, well-documented track record of making crude remarks about sexually assaulting women, kissed and groped her without her consent, is sending shock waves through Democratic Party circles and the mainstream media.

President Trump, who himself has faced plenty of sex-related accusations, took to Twitter to mock Franken. Last night at 10:06 Trump tweeted, “The Al Frankenstein picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words. Where do his hands go in pictures 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 while she sleeps?”


WHEN A SOCIALIST PUT RAND PAUL IN THE HOSPITAL

WHEN A SOCIALIST PUT RAND PAUL IN THE HOSPITAL
Sen. Rand Paul has returned to work on Capitol Hill after a Trump-hating, Bernie Sanders-supporting, left-wing Democrat put him in the hospital after what looks like a politically motivated attack.

The junior Republican senator from Kentucky returned to Washington Monday in time for the Senate Finance Committee to begin considering the Senate tax reform bill, which is now said to include a provision repealing Obamacare’s individual mandate, as Paul has long proposed.


HILLARY TO GET HER OWN SPECIAL PROSECUTOR?

Hillary Clinton, Jeff Seesion, Russia, Mueller probe
Senior federal prosecutors are investigating Hillary Clinton, the sale of Uranium One, and the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, a move that may lead to the appointment of another independent prosecutor, Fox News reports.

Under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Department of Justice ordered prosecutors to examine “certain issues” raised by congressional Republicans, according to a letter Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd sent to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and other committee members, who have been demanding a special counsel be assigned to probe Clinton.


Alabama GOP Senate seat in jeopardy

Alabama GOP Senate seat in jeopardy
If embattled Alabama GOP senatorial candidate Judge Roy Moore manages to win the runoff election against Democrat Doug Jones on Dec. 12, Senate Republicans are considering refusing to allow Moore to serve in the chamber. The idea was raised in Republican insider circles in recent days. Alabama election law is inflexible on candidate substitutions at this stage of the contest, according to legal observers, so no matter what Moore’s name has to stay on the ballot. The Alabama legislature could meet and change the law but it’s hard to imagine them emulating New Jersey Democrats circa 2002.


TRUMP’S ASIA TRIP BOLSTERS ‘AMERICA FIRST’

TRUMP’S ASIA TRIP BOLSTERS AMERICA FIRST
President Trump used his historic trip to Asian nations to bolster international resolve to combat North Korean nuclear adventurism and Islamic terrorism, as well as to promote his signature “America first” trade policies.                                                         

The tour was calculated to project American power after eight years of pathetic servility, weakness, and apology tours by President Obama, and, of course, to bolster Trump’s standing as a world leader, among other things. Despite some grumbling from Democrats like Nancy Pelosi who said the Chinese were likely laughing at Trump for treading lightly in China about that country’s trade imbalance with the U.S. after using strong rhetoric domestically, reviews have been generally positive. Trump was presidential, as pollsters like to say.


SENATE TAX REFORMS UNVEILED

SENATE TAX REFORMS UNVEILED
Senate Republicans unveiled their tax reform bill yesterday, cutting taxes while keeping the Obamacare penalty for not carrying health insurance intact and rebuffing President Trump’s demand for an immediate reduction in the nation’s sky-high corporate income tax rates.

Tax-writers on Capitol Hill seem keenly aware of legendary columnist Robert Novak’s words: “God put the Republican Party on earth to cut taxes. If they don’t do that, they have no useful function.”

Liberal shakedown artist Jesse Jackson is being accused of groping a female journalist
Liberal shakedown artist Jesse Jackson is being accused of groping a female journalist.

The claim against the purported civil rights leader comes amidst a wave of sexual harassment and sexual abuse allegations that have been leveled in recent weeks against top Hollywood figures including Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Charlie Sheen.

Jackson’s accuser is Danielle Young, a writer and producer with The Root, Jessica Chasmar reports at the Washington Times.

Left Coast NAACP wants to ban national anthem
The left-wing NAACP in California wants to dump the national anthem, fantasizing the patriotic tune is somehow racist, according to CBS Sacramento.

“This song is wrong; it shouldn’t have been there, we didn’t have it ’til 1931, so it won’t kill us if it goes away,” said president Alice Huffman.

Patrick Bateman, the lead character in American Psycho, as portrayed by Christian Bale
Howie Rubin seems a lot like Patrick Bateman, the lead character in American Psycho.

Rubin, formerly a portfolio manager at George Soros-founded Soros Fund Management, stands accused in a $27 million lawsuit of Caligula-like sexual abuses. He allegedly “sadistically abused and victimized women in a Manhattan penthouse sex dungeon — even beating one woman so brutally that one of her breast implants flipped.” He allegedly paid the woman $20,000.

Socialist Lee J. Carter on the ballot for Virginia House of DelegatesIt’s no secret that socialists have infiltrated the Democratic Party.

One of them is former U.S. Marine and self-described socialist Lee J. Carter who on June 13 was unopposed for the Democrat nomination for District 50 of the Virginia House of Delegates. Carter is a member of the Marxist group, Democratic Socialists of America, Bombthrowers contributor Renee Nal writes at TrevorLoudon.com.

Texas Church Massacre: Why Did It Happen?
Mass murderer Devin Patrick Kelley was a violent, domestic abuser, who was kicked out of the U.S. Air Force and passed the time mocking religion and proselytizing for atheism.

On cue the Left did what it always does after gut-wrenching tragedies, using the attack to call for more assaults on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. Of course Barack Obama led the way. Others say Kelley’s hostility to religion may have motivated the assault.


ANTIFA FAIL

ANTIFA FAIL
The millions of rabid Trump-haters that the George Soros-linked group Refuse Fascism hoped would show up Saturday in cities across America to drive the duly elected president and vice president of the United States from office must have had other plans.

The so-called Resistance’s coordinated multi-city action failed despite oceans of favorable media coverage from the mainstream media and a full-page ad in the New York Times.


Actually, the Republican tax reform plan does raise taxes on the rich

Actually, the Republican tax reform plan does raise taxes on the rich
The GOP’s newly unveiled tax reform legislation would raise taxes on high earners to 45.6 percent, not cap them at 39.6 percent, as its proponents claim, according to an analysis of the proposal by Danny Vinik of Politico.

Republicans’ proposed “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” would collapse the current seven individual income tax brackets – 10, 15, 25, 28, 33, 35, and 39.6 percent into just four – 12, 25, 35, and 39.6 percent – according to a summary of major details by the Tax Foundation.


Sleazeball lefty journo David Corn investigated for sexual harassment

David Corn
Mother Jones magazine reporter David Corn was investigated for sexual harassment in the workplace three years ago and the probe will be re-opened in light of new evidence that has surfaced, Politico reports.

The reliably sleazy Corn, who is the leftist mag’s Washington bureau chief, has been cheerleading the #metoo campaign urging women to report sexual harassment and was essential in promoting the ridiculous Russian dossier that Hillary Clinton’s people paid Fusion GPS to fabricate. Among the more salacious claims in the dossier was a story that Donald Trump hired prostitutes in Moscow to urinate on a bed in front of him.
