Democrat politics

Opinion/Analysis: Democrats exploit cities — They’ve ruled for decades but guess who they blame for problems?

There are many tragic ironies unfolding since even before the death of George Floyd. As we see sincere people demonstrating for change in this country regarding how people of color are treated within policing and the justice system, Democrats and left-wing leadership see this righteous activism as an opportunity to reinforce the status quo. I say this as a former community organizer for the left a great deal of my adult life. Whenever there was an issue on which people could be “organized” the goal was always to increase that rage and concern in order to access as many people as possible. For the Democrats, marches based on outrage and people gathering to protest are the most effective means with which to gather names and to expand political influence. The horrible irony is the passion of these well-meaning citizens is being exploited by the Democrats and their “social justice” handmaidens to actually maintain the political status quo. In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, millions and millions of corporate dollars are pouring into the Democratic and left-wing establishment “social justice” organizations. Once again, the good intention is to help spur “change” in the inner city and for people of color in this country after watching, for decades, nothing improve for people in cities like Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, Baltimore and Detroit. Voter registration efforts are a focus of the Black Lives Matter organization, the NAACP, and other Democratic-allied organizations. The message seems to be that the more you vote if you are a person of color in an urban area, the more your voice will be heard and the better your life will become. But how has that been working out? Is the suffering endured by people living in cities run by Democrats somehow going to change by voting in more of the same? The arterial message with Democratic crisis voter registration is that it is Republicans who are evil and at fault. All of this is Donald Trump’s fault, and voting in more Democrats like Joe Biden, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Keith Ellison is going to, somehow, improve everyone’s lot in life. But that, of course, is a lie. The cities suffering with the most economic and social injustice are cities that have been controlled by the Democratic establishment for years, and in most cases, for decades. Chicago has been controlled by Democratic mayors for 89 years. Detroit for 58 years. Baltimore for 53 years. Washington, D.C., for 53 years. Minneapolis, with George Floyd’s killing the spark of the latest demand for change, has been controlled by Democrats for 42 years. Los Angeles for 19 years. And New York, in the latest round of disastrous governance, has suffered under Bill de Blasio for six years. The messaging from both the Democrats and the media is that Donald Trump, the guy who’s been in office for three years, is the source of all the injustice — or so say the people in charge for half a century or longer. It’s not surprising that those responsible for the continuing decline of America’s great urban areas would like their constituents to look elsewhere to blame. The attempt to deflect and accuse others for the continuing decline of urban America has been generally successful. After all, why else would cities like Chicago and Minneapolis and Baltimore keep voting in their tormentors? One tactic is to promote extremes accusing others for the disasters, issuing slogans like “Defund the Police” so real policy solutions won’t be discussed. The emotional reaction also keeps local constituencies from looking at their local failed and culpable leadership that is directly responsible for the untenable situation. This circus is made possible in large part because Democrats are very good at deflection, theater and stunts, and their compliant media loves covering it. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, D.C., a city facing many economic and social problems, and led by Democratic mayors for over half a century, decided to paint a massive “Black Lives Matter” banner on the street leading to the White House. When it comes to stunts, that’s a good one. It is the ultimate in what I term “Patronizing Mayhem,” where politicians give the impression of acting on a problem with one hand while maintaining the pain with the other. Many community activists are beginning to recognize and admit that, despite (or because) of decades of Democratic leadership and involvement of so-called social justice organizations, the lives of people of color have not gotten better in the inner city. And even some of the deflected blame may not be the core of the problem. According to The Washington Post, there were 15 fatal shootings of unarmed black men by police in 2019. Even one is too many, but the messaging has been that the police are responsible for a “genocide” of African-Americans in this country. There has been massive suffering and death in the black communities in this country, that is true. But the question remains, why? The Chicago Sun-Times reported the grim news of what that great American city still endures. “From 7 p.m. Friday, May 29, through 11 p.m. Sunday, May 31, 25 people were killed in the city, with another 85 wounded by gunfire …” The newspaper tells us this was the most violent day in 60 years in that city, and it wasn’t due to police shootings. “‘If immediate action isn’t taken to address systemic racism, poverty and ‘black folks being shot down and killed out here like dogs,’ [Rev. Michael] Pfleger said the last weekend in May will merely serve as a ‘coming attraction of what’s going to happen next.’” Is it finally becoming undeniable that if Chicagoans want to genuinely address the systemic problems of their city, they will have to look directly at the Democratic leadership they have relied upon for 83 years — the same Democratic leadership at the city and state level controlling the social policies destroying lives. For those living in the inner city, the corporations that are sending millions to groups like the ACLU, Black Lives Matter and the NAACP, among others, are doing so with the intent to improve peoples’ lives. The past, however, indicates they are instead funding efforts invested in the political status quo keeping people trapped in cities where generations of lives have been lost to self-obsessed politicians and a political party that sees the suffering of people as a political necessity.

Candace Owens Mocks Democrats for Kneeling ‘Photo Op’ in Kente Cloth Scarves

There was nothing Democrats would not do to win the black vote, Blexit founder Candace Owens said Monday when Democrat lawmakers took a knee in honor of George Floyd. Owens also tweeted video footage of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her fellow lawmakers wearing Kente cloth scarves while kneeling inside Emancipation Hall at the U.S. Capitol: The lawmakers knelt for eight minutes and 46 seconds, which was the same amount of time former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kept his knee on George Floyd’s neck before he died. “We are here to honor George Floyd,” Pelosi said, adding, “and so many others who lost their lives and were abused by police brutality.” However, prominent black conservatives such as Owens, Rob Smith, Terrence K. Williams, and Keith and Kevin Hodge have seen how the media used Floyd’s death to portray America as racist, vilify police officers, and force black Americans into the role of victims, wrote Breitbart News’s David Ng. He continued: Many of today’s most vocal black conservatives on social media have thoroughly absorbed the ideas of Thomas Sowell and Shelby Steele, who have been writing for decades about the damaging effects left-wing ideology can have on black Americans. Through their own personal experiences, they realized that Democrat politicians want to keep racial animosity alive in order to control the black vote. … Even before #BlackLivesMatter, Sowell warned black Americans that black votes matter to Democrats more than black lives. “Racial harmony would be a political disaster for such politicians,” he said. Monday, Williams tweeted that the if the Democrats won the White House in November, “I’ll honestly be scared for my life.” “I fear that I and many others will be harmed for exposing their lies and corruption. We must for [sic] re-elect President Trump or we will be ruined and the America we know will never be the same,” he concluded.

Agreed 100%!!  Major kudos to Candance Owens, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) best-selling author Dr. Thomas Sowell and other prominent black conservatives for saying what needs to be said.  It’s long overdue.  To see Candace’s Tweet/video of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and other Democrats wearing their Kente cloth scarves (symbolic of Ghana tribal wear)  to ostensibly show solidarity with the Black Congressional Caucus, click on the text above.  These white Democrats doing this nonsense for this photo op, is the most disingenuous, politically self-serving, pandering I have ever seen.  It’d be laughable, if it weren’t so pathetic.  The next time ol’ Nancy takes a pot shot at President Trump for a photo op, someone needs to call her out and show this ridiculous video.  While we’re at it…  Why didn’t some reporter go right up to Nancy or Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), or any other of those white Democrats and ask them…  Why are you wearing that?  You’re not black.  Are you from Ghana?  Are you self-identifying as “African American?”  Of course, the dominantly liberal mainstream media would NEVER do that to a Democrat politician.  Typical…

Opinion/Analysis: Democrats, rioters don’t care about George Floyd — they’re just using him

Why is anybody surprised to see the racial extortion, lawless rioting and selfish looting in the streets of America’s big cities today — all in the name of an unarmed black man named George Floyd, who died in police custody last week? There is a whole political party in America today that is entirely built upon such racial exploitation. Democratic Party leaders in Washington do not actually care about the hardships of blacks in America today. They simply want to weaponize those hardships into votes year after year after year. Or, as one major Democrat in South Carolina famously said: “I don’t want to buy the black vote. I just want to rent it for a day.” That “day” being Election Day. They can all go back to their misery all the other days of the year. Like President Trump said: “What have you got to lose?” Lawless rioting? That is but a mere extension of the bald dishonesty and unhinged lawlessness that defines the Democratic Party today. Take their lawless pursuit of Mr. Trump, for instance. Ever since he got elected, Democrats have accused him of everything under the sun from colluding with Russians to steal the election to bribing the Ukrainian government to sparking the Chinese pandemic. All of it has been exhaustively investigated to no end. Some Democrats in Washington are actually still defending the secret evidence they claim to have proving that Mr. Trump has committed all sorts of their invented crimes. It’s all lies. Their trumped-up, manufactured charges against the president expose the profound lawlessness that even many of their own supporters now realize were nothing more than fantasies. So, really, is it any wonder that you would have roving bands of lawless thugs in masks thronging the streets, torching police cars, smashing windows and burning churches? They learned it from the best. And what about the rampant looting? I mean, why not? As President Obama’s chief of staff — who later became the mayor of Chicago — openly preached: Never let a crisis go to waste. You need a 60-inch high definition, plasma TV? Well, just grab a red cart, smash the windows at Target and load up as many as you can wheel out the door. All in the name of George Floyd. Want a free case of liquor? Take a tire iron and pry open the steel door from the alley and grab all the booze you can carry. All in the name of George Floyd. Truth is, these people don’t care about George Floyd. Or anybody else, for that matter. They are worthless criminals who belong in jail for the rest of their lives. They do not belong in civilized society. But is it any different than the example set by Democratic politicians in Washington today? When the pandemic hit earlier this year, Washington Democrats in the House used it as an opportunity to loot the American treasury for all manner of ill-gotten booty for all their various special interests. At the height of the global emergency, Democrats passed smash-and-grab legislation to pay off all their constituencies, including labor unions, the U.S. Postal Service, illegal aliens and universities. They also decided to hijack all future American elections to make it easier to commit election fraud. All in the name of the coronavirus pandemic that was on its way to killing more than 100,000 Americans. So, is it any surprise that the looters and rioters burning American cities today would do the same thing? The really sad part of all this is that George Floyd deserves better. Now, we don’t know everything that led up to his unfortunate death. But certainly, he did not deserve to die. At a time when very few things unify America, Mr. Floyd’s death unified the country. But that spark of hope was quickly doused. Soon, lawless looters and violent thugs decided to exploit Mr. Floyd’s death for their own gain. Like the man said, never let a crisis go to waste.

No kidding..   Thanks to veteran columnist Charles Hurt for that spot-on op/ed.  He’s another one who is saying what needs to be said.  These punks, thugs and losers are using the tragic death of George Floyd as some pretext to commit all of these awful acts of violence and mayhem.  It’s disingenuous at best.  Even those marching (more or less peacefully) during the day are rallying around lies.  The whole holding their hands up and chanting “Stop, don’t shoot” is a reference to Ferguson, MO in August of 2014,  and what turned out to be a lie.  In August 2014, Michael Brown NEVER said that as Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, a decorated officer, tried to arrest him.  After MULTIPLE autopsies, and several investigations including testimonies from eye-witnesses and video footage, it was determined that Officer Wilson acted appropriately, and only shot Brown in self defense as he was going for the officer’s gun.  And to those who are holding up signs, or wearing t-shirts that say, “Justice for George Floyd”…Here’s a newsflash..  The cop in question, Derek Chauvin, was fired from the Minneapolis Police Department.  His wife has filed for divorce, and oh..btw.. He was arrested and has already been charged with multiple charges including murder and manslaughter.  So, justice IS being served, as well it should be.  What he did was abhorrent, and he’s in jail.  Done and done.  The system worked.   Time to move on.  Anyways..  Charlie can be reached at churt@washingtontimes.com or @charleshurt on Twitter.   Excellent!!     🙂

Opinion/Analysis: Joe Biden’s racism a Democratic Party tradition

True, we have not even elected him president yet, but isn’t it already time to start dismantling Joe Biden’s presidential library? After all, he has a long history of supporting white supremacists and just being an all-around racially insensitive, privileged white geezer. To be fair, Mr. Biden did not invent the Democratic Party or its racism. But for nearly 50 years he has knowingly and willingly associated himself with and supported the causes of the Democratic Party, known throughout history for its association with white supremacy. Just this week, The New York Times “celebrated” Memorial Day the only way they know how. They wrote an editorial denigrating the U.S. military and disparaging a bunch of military figures who have been highly revered throughout history for their leadership in the U.S. military. In the process, apparently, The New York Times editorial board made a shocking discovery that America fought a civil war back in the 1860s called, well, the “Civil War.” It is also known in some parts as the “War Between the States,” the “War of Northern Aggression,” the “Late Unpleasantness,” and, even still, sometimes just “The War.” These same crack editorial page writers also, in the process of discovering this civil war, discovered that for hundreds of years the abominable practice of slavery was legal in the United States. It was legal, in fact, until a Republican president named Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and pushed through the 13th Amendment in 1865. “Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacists?” asks The New York Times editorial board. This is a fairly hilarious question that reveals more about The New York Times editorial board than anything about the U.S. military. Anyone in America with even the most passing affiliation with the U.S. armed services knows that the American military is — without equal — the most egalitarian institution in the country. Military service has been a pathway to the American dream for millions of Americans, regardless of income, gender, race or religious beliefs. The fact that The New York Times editorial board does not know this tells you all you need to know about them. As the U.S. military was helping millions make leaps and bounds towards the American Dream, Democrat Joe Biden was busy kibitzing with actual white supremacists. And we are not just talking about former Sen. Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia, who was an “Exalted Cyclops” in the Ku Klux Klan before becoming the longest-serving senator in U.S. history. Both lifelong Democrats, Mr. Biden and Mr. Byrd served in the Senate together and caucused together for more than 35 years. But wait there’s more! Just last year, Mr. Biden bragged how well he worked with other fierce segregationists in his own party. So enthusiastic is Mr. Biden about his fond memories of working with the ol’ time racists that whenever he waxes poetic about them, he slips into a fake Southern accent. At a fundraiser last year, Mr. Biden recalled warmly — in a fake Southern accent — how one of the old racist bulls “never called me ‘boy.’ He always called me ‘son.’” This is how Mr. Biden always talks when channeling his party’s long, ugly history with racism and racist politics. In 2012, the last time he was fighting for his political life, Mr. Biden donned a fake Southern accent when he bizarrely warned a gathering of black voters in rural Virginia that his opponent would “put y’all back in chains” if elected. It’s the same fake Southern accent he used last week when he told black voters that they “ain’t black” if they have any second thoughts about voting for him to be president. While The New York Times editorial board is busy dishonorably smearing the U.S. military today, they would be far more effective if they trained their vitriol on the Democratic nominee for president and the future monument to his long career in Washington. Or, as Ronald Reagan might have said, “Mr. Biden, tear down that library!”

No kidding!!  Thanks Charlie!  Veteran columnist Charles Hurt is responsible for that brutal assessment of Joe Biden, and his racial hypocrisy.  As Charlie rightly notes, slavery was legal in this country until a REPUBLICAN President, Abe Lincoln, changed that.  As for the Klan..  Here’s a dirty little secret that Democrats don’t want you to know..  For the first CENTURY of it’s existence (i.e. 1865 to roughly 1967 give/take), the KKK was almost 100% exclusively made up of white DEMOCRATS.  Yeah.. That’s right.  I wonder how many black registered voters are aware of that.  That’d be an interesting poll..     🙂

Opinion: America’s scarily sharp COVID-19 turn toward socialism

As COVID-19 continues, as America’s free market languishes, as America’s entrepreneurial spirit withers away, as Americans’ private businesses fall into bankruptcy and outright close — the Democratic Socialists of America are, quietly, behind closed doors, cheering. They smell opportunity. Out of crisis, here they come. And there are scores of Democrats in Congress riding the same COVID-19 train as the socialists. This is red-flag-waving, alarm-call-clanging, sound-the-troops-and-play-the-trumpet warning time for freedom-loving Americans. The chance for socialism to spread its rot, using COVID-19 as cause, is real. “Only a crisis — actual or perceived — produces real change,” the Democratic Socialists of America wrote in an early May dispatch posted on the organization’s website. “We knew well before COVID-19 that capitalism was killing us.” Sen. Bernie Sanders may have gone the way of failed presidential candidates — again. But the DSA hasn’t disappeared. They’re like vultures, scouring for death. They’re like buzzards, circling for easy prey. They see the desperate 35 million unemployed as opportunity. “Our job as socialists,” the DSA wrote, “[is] to build a new world on the ashes of the old. … We must organize ourselves and fight.” It’s interesting the DSA would outright label its members “socialists;” after all, many DSA members, most notably, Sanders, have gone out of their way to insist democratic-socialism is not socialism and democratic-socialists are not socialists. Apparently, the distinction — which never was a real distinction — is no longer necessary. The cloak’s off; secret’s out: DSA admits what most freedom-loving Americans already knew — democratic socialists are one and the same as socialists. Which is pretty much one and the same as communists. Potatoes, potahtoes — it’s all collectivism, and it’s all in stark defiance of America’s system of rugged individualism, as defined by the nation’s founders in the concept of God-given rights, not government-granted privileges. COVID-19’s dark economic times are giving these socialists an open door. Americans need to slam it shut before the damage done to freedom is irreversible. “In the wake of this devastation,” said socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in recent remarks reported by the Queens Eagle, “our goal should not be to make things as they were. Our goal should be to rebuild in a way that is just and makes things better for people.” In her mind, that means big government spending. Big government spending for Medicare for All, healthcare for all. “[A]usterity does not create prosperity. We cannot cut our way to growth,” Ocasio-Cortez said. Democrats in Congress agree. The HEROES Act, as Democrats have dubbed it, would take roughly $1 trillion of tax dollars and give them to state and local governments — ostensibly, so these state and local government officials wouldn’t have to make the hard decision of reopening for business, amid coronavirus. They could keep private businesses shut but still collect revenues to keep government in operation. Sayonara, free market. The Heroes Act also calls for an addition $200 billion for essential worker pay; $75 billion for COVID-19 testing and contact tracing; and enough stimulus funds to pay Americans $6,000 per household. In other words: Stay home. Stay away from work. Let the government provide. Let the government be the god. That’s socialism; that’s collectivism; that’s communism. It’s all one and the same, tightly wound, one leading to the other. Leftists will deny, and hope semantics will give them the tools they need to duck and dodge and confuse Americans as to their radical redesign plans for the country. But make no mistake about it: Socialists are using COVID-19 to reshape, reform and rebuild the country. That is, they’re trying to destroy America from within — and the only solution is for this country to get back on its free market path, and quick. If Americans aren’t allowed to take care of themselves, the socialists will quickly create a system where Americans have to rely on government for sustenance. And that will be a hard, if not impossible, system of dependency to break.

Indeed..  And well said, Cheryl.  Cheryl K. Chumley is responsible for that sobering piece.  It’s a clarion call for all of us to push back against this wave of socialism that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and others are trying to impose on us.  This latest $3 TRILLION bill that passed the House Friday night (the biggest spending bill ever passed in history by the House) is just the latest example of Cheryl is talking about here.  The bill actually has very little to do with addressing the Wuhan virus crisis here in America.  Its mostly stuff like giving paychecks to ILLEGAL ALIENS and stopping states that have common-sense voter ID laws to prevent voter fraud, and basically imposing mail-in balloting everywhere…which, of course, just increases voter fraud…which is what they’re hoping for.  It’s truly horrifying.  Oh, and did you catch the part about it being over $3 TRILLION dollars?!?!  At some point, that bill will come due.  Utter insanity…  The GOP-controlled Senate has said the bill is dead on arrival.  Let’s pray that’s the case.  Anyway, Cheryl can be reached at cchumley@washingtontimes.com or on Twitter, @ckchumley.   Thanks Cheryl!

Democrats’ coronavirus bill would eliminate states’ voter ID requirement

Tucked inside House Democrats’ new coronavirus bill is language that would create a loophole in states’ voter ID requirements, allowing people to cast ballots without having to prove who they are. While the crux of the bill, revealed Tuesday, is a massive injection of taxpayer aid for states, localities and federal agencies dealing with the virus, Democrats also tackled some of their long-standing political goals. One section of the bill would require states to allow at least 15 days of in-person early voting before Election Day this year, and to also allow voting by mail for any reason, overriding states that have more limited policies. The new bill would also require that absentee ballots be counted if they arrive up to 10 days after Election Day. And the legislation says that states that require voter IDs to cast a ballot must allow voters to meet the requirement by self-certifying to their own identity. The National Conference of State Legislatures says 36 states have some voter ID requirement. About a half dozen of those are “strict” photo ID laws, requiring someone who wants to cast a ballot without photo ID to return with proof within three days for their ballot to be counted.

More liberal agenda nonsense that has NOTHING to do with public health or displaced Americans who are unemployed.  This is just a way for House Democrats to further their anti Voter ID law agenda….and push for more mail-in voting, which of course, is insane.  Voter ID is the ONLY way to prevent voter fraud.  Naturally, Democrats who want more illegal aliens voting for them, want voter ID done away with.   Hopefully, the Senate won’t let this pass.  We need voter ID laws now more than ever.

Opinion/Analysis: Joe Biden exposes the fraud of the #MeToo movement

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has accomplished something for women that no other Democrat could: He has exposed the fraud of the #MeToo movement. Most of its high-profile supporters responded by smothering it to death with a pillow. You see, Mr. Biden’s candidacy, combined with a credible accusation against him of rape in 1993 by Tara Reade, who was then a member of his Senate staff, has made it undeniable that the #MeToo movement has been a cynical political charade. Many women around the country were heartened by the effort, and it’s these women who are harmed by not just the hypocrisy but by the grotesque indifference to the impact of frauds like this. Finally, after weeks of ignoring it, Mr. Biden personally addressed the accusations on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” He denied the accusations as has his campaign repeatedly on his behalf. Many were hoping this moment of personal denial would be enough, allowing the media and Democratic leadership to move on. They tried ignoring the charges for weeks and were only forced to address them when the haunting audio of Ms. Reade’s mother on “The Larry King Show” in 1993 asking for advice forced the media to face the story. So many Democrats, Hollywood celebrities and liberal activists lifted their voices in outrage and indignation in response to sexual assault allegations against now-Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh. As they ordered us to “believe all women,” we heard denunciations of due process and that the accused must prove their innocence. The man pointed at would be given no quarter because the rules have changed — or so we were lectured. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who for a time was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president and was primarily responsible for former Sen. Al Franken’s resignation from the Senate because of sexual harassment allegations, has endorsed Mr. Biden for president. During a recent video meeting, Ms. Gillibrand of New York said, “Vice President Biden has vehemently denied these allegations, and I support Vice President Biden.” Well, that should do it. Sen. Kamala D. Harris, California Democrat, was leading the charge against Justice Kavanaugh during the Senate hearings. Carrie Severino, in a piece at FoxNews.com noted, “As recently as last year Harris said that she believed numerous women who accused Biden of unwanted touching. Of course, that was when she was running against Biden for the nomination. Now that Harris is on the Biden VP shortlist, it’s nothing but crickets.” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has also endorsed Mr. Biden. When confronted by a reporter asking about the “different standard” between Justice Kavanaugh and Mr. Biden, the woman who condemned Justice Kavanaugh snapped at the reporter saying she didn’t need a “lecture,” on the “believe all women” issue. The speaker then went on to laud Mr. Biden for his work supporting women’s issues, authoring the Violence Against Women Act as an example, leading her to stamp him as a person of “great character.” Lost upon Mrs. Pelosi is the fact that the men who have egregious histories of abusing women in Hollywood and in Washington, D.C., have a history of specifically and deliberately “working on women’s issues.” This strategy seems to provide a bubble of protection, just ask imprisoned movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, former President Bill Clinton, disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Even the woman considered the founder of the #MeToo movement, Tarana Burke, has decided that Mr. Biden is still “electable,” admitting in a tweet that “the inconvenient truth is that this story is impacting us differently because it hits at the heart of one of the most important elections of our lifetime.” In other words, politics wins out when the accused is a Democrat. The woman is suddenly expendable. For the party and these activist liberals, women are a commodity to be used and controlled. Rose McGowan understands this. She is the actress and feminist activist who has been consistently committed to issues of sexual assault and was the first to make a rape allegation public against Weinstein. For a while, Miss McGowan was the lone voice from the Hollywood #MeToo movement expressing her disgust at the hypocrisy over how Ms. Reade has been treated, while condemning the Democratic Party for its hypocrisy and abandonment of women.

Agreed.  Thanks to columnist Tammy Bruce for that brutally accurate assessment.  The Democratic leadership, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and of course Joe Biden (among many others) are spectacular hypocrites.  For more of this article, click on the text above.

Gutfeld on Liz Warren believing Joe

Monday, Pocahontas defended former Vice President Joe Biden against accusations of sexual assault. How did Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., do it? She said this about his the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s recent one and only interview given last week about the accusation by a former staffer that he sexually assaulted the staffer in 1993. “The vice president’s answers were credible and convincing,” Warren said. “I support the vice president. I support his campaign and I’m proud to endorse him for president.” Well, that’s quite a change. After all, this is the same Liz who took a baton to former New York City mayor and presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg’s legs for allegations that were far less sordid. Let’s walk down memory lane, shall we? During one of the debates for Democratic presidential candidates – when Warren and Bloomberg were still in the race, Warren said this about a derogatory comment Bloomberg supposedly made to a woman: “I hope you heard what his defense was: I’ve been nice to some women,” Warren said. “The mayor has to stand on his record. And what we need to know is exactly what’s lurking out there.” Bloomberg denied ever making the derogatory comment. Warren said: “Mr. Mayor, are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements, so we can hear their side of the story?” Bloomberg responded: “We have a very few nondisclosure agreements.” Warren cut him off and said: “How many is that?” “Let me finish,” Bloomberg said. “How many is that?” Warren interrupted again. And with that, nearly $1 billion Bloomberg has spent on his presidential campaign swirled down the toilet. The only thing left of Bloomberg after that was the bill. So what’s changed? Well, Pocahontas now wants to become chief running mate. And if there’s one thing that can get Liz to sing a new tune, its political survival. The fact is that the requirements for Joe’s VP changed from being a woman to being a woman who looks the other way when it comes to an accusation of Joe looking at and touching other women. I mean, you could accept being his VP and still think he’s a lech. Has anyone considered that? But that’s not political. That’s honest. And politicians don’t do honest. Take Liz, who spent her professional life pretending to be Native American, with no reservations. So this is small potatoes. But also: honesty destroys Joe’s candidacy. Saying Joe is a handsy creeper ruins his claim as the moral alternative to Trump. So instead, just lie. And know that becoming VP is just a heartbeat away from becoming president. Just don’t let Liz sneak up on Joe. One good scare could change history.

Indeed..   Thanks as usual to Greg Gutfeld for his biting wit and sarcasm, and calling out Sen. Elisabeth Warren (D-MA) on her brazen hypocrisy.  She just wants to be the VP pick so bad, that she’s willing to sell out like that…and doesn’t care one bit.  She is what is worst in politics.  No wonder she finished THIRD in the DEMOCRATIC primaries…in her own state among DEMOCRAT voters.  It’s bad when your base in your own state doesn’t want anything to do with you.  Of course she won’t be picked for the VP position by Joe.  But, if by some weird stroke of luck, it happens, it’ll be like winning the lotto for the Republicans.

Pro-Trump Georgia Democrat reverses decision to resign after ‘overwhelming support’

Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones has changed his mind about resigning from the state legislature, announcing Thursday that he would “remain on the battlefield” despite the Democratic outcry over his endorsement of President Trump. Mr. Jones, a black Democrat, said he received “an overwhelming amount of support” from his constituents, as well as “fellow Georgians and fellow Americans from across this country,” after declaring Wednesday that he had “left the plantation” and would step down. “You know what, America?” said Mr. Jones in an online video. “I thought about it, and I talked to my family and I talked to my supporters, and because of what you did for me, I am going to remain on the battlefield. I am going to complete my term, I am going to put my country before my party.” He added, “That was emotion. That was motivation.” Mr. Jones has been decried by fellow Democrats since announcing earlier this month that he would support Mr. Trump’s 2020 reelection bid, prompting House leaders to endorse his primary foe, Rhonda Taylor, and local Democrats to seek to censure him. “Little did I know that I would receive such a barrage of attacks and name-calling by the far left of the Democratic Party,” Mr. Jones said.

Opinion/Analysis: After every other Democratic candidate dropped out, Obama finally endorses Biden

It isn’t like Joe Biden was former President Barack Obama’s first choice for president. Mr. Obama’s video endorsement of Mr. Biden on Tuesday came after every other candidate had pulled out. He even waited for Bernie Sanders to suspend his campaign to endorse Mr. Biden. The “moderate” Obama and the formerly moderate Biden now appear to be in bed with the hard-left, Saul Alinsky, socialist wing of their party. In all of this, Mr. Sanders is the real winner because he has managed to pull the party so far left that it might qualify to open a headquarters in Havana, or even Moscow, where Mr. Sanders and his wife honeymooned. Mr. Obama tried, but failed, to convince Mr. Biden not to run this year. According to The New York Times, Mr. Obama told Mr. Biden, “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t.” Mr. Biden wrote in his book that Mr. Obama talked him out of running in 2016 in order to clear a path for Hillary Clinton. Mr. Biden wrote that Mr. Obama “played up the appeal of leaving politics and gave little encouragement about a possible bid.” Again, according to The New York Times, Mr. Obama “offered every (2020 Democrat) candidate his counsel” and in December it leaked that the former president was secretly promoting then-candidate Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, to possible donors. Last December, Mr. Obama told a gathering in Singapore there would be “significant improvement across the board” if more countries had female leaders and that “old men” should get “out of the way.” It was a comment many took to be a slap at his much older (and male) vice president. In March 2019, a report in The New York Times said Mr. Obama called together some of Mr. Biden’s top campaign advisers and told them, they needed to “make sure” Mr. Biden didn’t “embarrass himself,” a clear reference to the growing number of gaffes Mr. Biden was committing and continues to commit.

Trump, all up til yesterday, kept asking the press at his daily briefings..  “Why hasn’t Obama endorsed Biden yet?”   It has been awfully strange how Obama was SO silent during the majority of the primary season and didn’t endorse his former VP til just yesterday…and then by only a streaming video online.  Anyway, thanks to Cal Thomas for laying out the history.  For more, click on the text above.
