Conservative Boris Johnson Is Set to Be the Next U.K. Prime Minister and There Will Be Tears

As I wrote a few days ago, the pro-Brexit party, which didn’t exist about ten minutes ago, looks like it is going to win huge in last Thursday’s elections in the U.K. (official results aren’t until Sunday). This is a swift repudiation of the “remain” establishment that was seeking a second referendum to undo Brexit. It’s also a rejection of leftism, as the socialist Labour Party continues to shrink its minority status.

Due to the all but certain results, current Prime Minister Theresa May resigned today. She had hemorrhaged most of her support in the conservative party and simply had no path forward. That’s got people asking who the next PM will be and we’ve got a very likely answer.

Enter Boris Johnson.

Johnson once famously said this about his chances of becoming PM.

“I have as much chance of becoming Prime Minister as of being decapitated by a frisbee or of finding Elvis.”

Well, looks like he’s about to lose his head because he’s the odds on favorite to win the spot right now. He’s the most popular conservative politician (that’s the pool the next PM will come from), has a large base of support, is an avid Brexiteer, and all the betting markets are saying he’s the guy.

This has got leftists pulling their hair out, as Johnson enjoys about the same level of popularity among them as Donald Trump does.

The New York Times ran negative stories all day, including one titled Britain on the Brink of Boris Johnson and Chaos

The European press are taking it well.

Does all this sound familiar? It’s the same playbook they’ve continually used against Trump.

For Johnson’s part, he’s not playing games. When asked about Brexit, he laid down a hard deadline and said there will be no more extensions, deal or no deal.

“We will leave the EU on October 31, deal or no deal… The way to get a good deal is to prepare for a no deal. To get things done you need to be prepared to walk away.”

Sounds like common sense to me. May’s tact of basically begging the EU not to blackmail them wasn’t working. It’s time to call their bluff and Johnson is the kind of leader who will do it. The EU needs Britain’s trade as much as Britain needs them. There’s no reason for France and Germany to be lording over the U.K. in the manner they’ve been since the original vote. If the EU wants to try to punish the Brits, I’m sure there are plenty of American companies that’ll be happy to work out new avenues of trade.

No doubt, this will all lead to plenty of tears and leftists everywhere will continue to lose their minds, but that’s ok. The people voted to leave the corrupt scheme that is the EU and they deserve to have their vote respected. No more extensions, no more referendums, and no more games.

The Intelligence Community Slings Cow Manure to Try to Cover Its Misdeeds in the Russia Hoax

Attorney General William Barr appears before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee to make his Justice Department budget request, Wednesday, April 10, 2019, in Washington. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)

A couple of days ago, President Trump allowed that he had declassified all the material that led to the infamous “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation that eventually mutated into Robert Mueller and a dozen or so Democrat donors attempting the contrive reasons to take down the President of the United States.

In addition, to various Democrats and Vichy Republicans howling about the public getting to see too much, this is setting up a confrontation between the Attorney General and the Intelligence Community that could get ugly.

This is from Politico:

President Donald Trump’s declassification order Thursday night has set up a showdown between his own Justice Department and the intelligence community that could trigger resignations and threaten the CIA’s ability to conduct its core business — managing secret intelligence and sources.

My first thought is, let as many of these cretins quit as want to. Pull their security clearances. Let them work for a living.

“There’s nothing CIA or NSA, for example, guards more jealously than sources and methods,” said Larry Pfeiffer, a 32-year intelligence veteran who served as the chief of staff to CIA Director Michael Hayden. “It is not hyperbole to say that lives are at stake.”

“I doubt any of the [CIA directors] or [directors of national intelligence] that I worked with would have sat by silently if their president contemplated or made such a decision,” added Pfeiffer, who also served as senior director of the White House Situation Room.

And if intelligence chiefs and Barr disagree on what to reveal, Trump retains final say.

“Does an agency head or the DNI have any recourse? Sure — a direct appeal to the president … or threatening to resign over a bad decision,” Pfeiffer said. “Neither is good governance.”

Do you know what else isn’t good governance? Monitoring the communications of a presidential campaign and a president’s transition team.

Let’s not fool ourselves here. The intelligence agencies are just as concerned about protecting their turf…and covering their asses in the wake of a failed coup d’etat…as they are about keeping the nation safe. In fact, often the aggrandizing of power and authority to an intelligence agency seems to have priority over keeping the country safe. They resist oversight and drum up bogus secrecy claims to wrap their malfeasance and misfeasance in security classifications. See How Department Of Justice And The FBI Are Using Bogus Secrecy Claims To Protect Their Own.

Anyone with a speck of sense knows that there are no sources and methods at risk here. There are no lives at stake. This is a banal case of political espionage combined with political dirty tricks that went viral. There are no agents in foreign countries at risk here…at least I don’t think the Brits are going to disappear Halper and Downer and Misfud over this. And if using the opposition research material paid for by the Clinton campaign based on uncorroborated rumors gathered from an enemy of our country is classified as either a source or method, then the IC is a lot more screwed up than even I had given them credit for.

For way, way, way too long we have given the intelligence community and the FBI some kind of demigod status where we’re supposed to quiver in fear if they are unhappy or threaten to quit. These people, in particular the senior ranks in those agencies, need to learn that they are employees of the taxpayer, they are not the policy makers. Policy makers are either elected by the people or appointed by people who are elected.

In this case, a credible claim exists that Brennan and Comey and Clapper conspired to try to bring down the US president. That claim must be investigated and the result of that investigation must be made public to the greatest extent possible. If it requires accepting the resignations…or having security escort out of the building…a few dozen Democrat activists who have burrowed into the intelligence apparatus, well, that’s a small price to pay. And I think Bill Barr is perfectly willing to pay that price.

Kanye West: Liberals Bully Trump Supporters

Westlake Legal Group kanye-west-donald-trump-620x465 Kanye West: Liberals Bully Trump Supporters Netflix Kanye West Interview Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment david letterman #MAGA

Kanye West appeared on David Letterman’s Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction in an interview that Daily Beast reporter Matt Wilstein says is ” not only one of the best interviews Letterman has ever conducted, it’s also one of the most coherent and engaging interviews Kanye has ever given, even if it does go off the rails at times”.

The hour-long interview won’t begin streaming until May 31, but Wilstein reveals Letterman covered a wide variety of topics with the controversial rap star including the home he helped design himself and his bipolar disorder.

“I have a friend who told me that my power is my influence,” Kanye continues. “And I said my power is my ability to not be influenced.”

All Letterman can say in response is, “Wow, this is pretty good.”

The meat of the interview comes in the second half of the episode when Letterman digs in on Kanye’s struggles with mental health. “When you’re bipolar, you have the potential to ramp up and it can take you to a point where you start acting erratic, as TMZ would put it,” the rapper says, referencing his on-air meltdown at that outlet’s offices last year.

Of course no in-depth Kanye interview is really complete without a little Trump talk. Letterman confronted West about his support of 45 and that’s where the exchange apparently turned a little tense.

“Did you vote for Trump?” Letterman asks him.

“I’ve never voted in my life,” Kanye answers.

“Then you don’t have a say in this,” Letterman shoots back to cheers from the audience.

After a brief pause, Kanye comes back with a comical, “Well you got me, you got me,” before going on his anti-13th Amendment rant that drew Trump’s praise and may or may not have been inspired by conservative activist Candace Owens.

After a bit of back and forth West rebuts:

“Have you ever been beat up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?” he asks eventually. Asked who is doing the bulk of the bullying in America right now, he replies, “Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters!”

Here is the official trailer for the upcoming episode.

AOC Attacks Non-Attack by Two Women as Sexist Attack by a Man, Gives Wealth & White Privilege a Pass. Twitter Pounces

[Screenshot from Steve Martin, cropped & re-framed, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXIaOiRSMFw]

 

Perhaps it was a hobby before the election, and now it’s a full-time career: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seems to have the habit of commenting fervently upon things about which she doesn’t know (here, here, and here).

Here’s a candidate for the proverbial mix-add:

Two female reporters for The Washington Post wrote an article referencing Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s big paydays as an attorney.

AOC should love that as an exposé — after all, white-privileged rich people are the enemy (here). Down with honkies!

The article noted, in part, the following:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren worked on more than 50 legal matters during her career as a professor at Ivy League law schools, charging as much as $675 an hour to advise a variety of clients, from people with asbestos disease to a corporation facing possible liability over ruptured breast implants.

Dude (and CNN reporter) Andrew Kaczynski tweeted it:

Not knowing anything about the article — and, apparently, not trying to know anything — Alexandria attacked it.

It reminds me, by the way, of one of 70’s-era Steve Martin’s hallmarks of idiocy: “Criticize things you don’t know about.”

Here’s Ocasio-Cortez’s bellow into the ether, which seems to suggest the article was a sexist protest piece by Andrew, angry because a woman had made more than he.

Where was her solidarity in opposition to the rich?

People made fun, including The Washington Free Beacon’s Alex Griswold:

Some suggested Alexandria was sexist for defending a woman over something the Green New Dealer’s previously railed against:

Matthew Cowart pointed out that the article wasn’t written by a man, but rather, two chicks:

It’s a bit of a jumble, but this is what happens when you go around attacking people for their race, their sex, and their success. Alexandria’s really put herself out there, and the pundits are hovering. Even those making less than privileged Pocahontas. And those who are less privileged than Sen. Ocasio-Cortez.

Video Shows House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler Appearing to Pass Out, but His Office Says He Didn’t

Westlake Legal Group JerroldNadlerCBS Video Shows House Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler Appearing to Pass Out, but His Office Says He Didn’t Politics North Carolina New York Jerry Nadler Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Congress Allow Media Exception

Rep. Jerrold “Jerry” Nadler (D-NY-10). Screen grab via CBS – Face the Nation.

Fox News reports on how House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (NY-17) reportedly passed out earlier today during an event with Mayor Bill de Blasio:

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler had to receive medical attention Friday after a health scare at an event in New York City.

Despite reports that the powerful New York Democrat appeared to pass out, his office said he merely felt ill but did not faint. A spokesman for Nadler told Fox News that the congressman is “okay” and “seems to have been dehydrated,” describing the room as “very warm.”

Nadler, 71, was speaking at a press conference on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, alongside 2020 Democratic hopeful New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, when the incident happened. De Blasio could be seen checking on him and patting him on the shoulder, as someone brought over a glass of water.

Fox News is told the congressman was being taken to a hospital in an ambulance.

“He is now responsive and receiving a check-up,” a spokesman told Fox News.

Here are two different videos of De Blasio trying to help Nadler, who appeared unresponsive and disoriented for a few seconds:

Nadler (or whoever handles his Twitter feed) tweeted out this message later in the day:

Glad to hear he’s doing better.

The incident was reminiscent of a health scare involving then-candidate for president Hillary Clinton during a 9/11 remembrance event in 2016:

A frail-looking Hillary Clinton collapsed during the 9/11 memorial service in lower Manhattan on Sunday morning — prompting Secret Service agents to grab her arms to prop her up and help her into a campaign van.

The 68-year-old Democratic nominee appeared to fall ill while standing amid other politicians shortly before a moment of silence at 9:58 a.m., sources told The Post.

Videos posted online showed a wobbly Clinton leaning against a metal bollard on the perimeter of the memorial plaza. Secret Service agents grabbed hold of both her arms as she swayed and stumbled off the sidewalk along West Street.

The video shows Clinton’s head bobbling as she pitched forward before being lifted into the van.

Clinton’s personal physician Dr. Lisa Bardack later said the former Secretary of State had been suffering from pneumonia, and “became overheated and dehydrated” during the 9/11 ceremony.

There’s no official word yet on whether or not Nadler is still in the hospital.

Pelosi Claims Trump’s Video of Her Stammering Is Doctored, but Reality Catches Up to Her

Westlake Legal Group NancyPelosi-AP-620x352 Pelosi Claims Trump’s Video of Her Stammering Is Doctored, but Reality Catches Up to Her twitter Stammer Speech Politics Nancy Pelosi Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could usually count on a lie getting around the world before the truth could get its pants on, but in the age of the internet, the truth doesn’t need pants, just a Wi-Fi connection.

President Donald Trump sent out a video of Nancy Pelosi stammering her way through a press conference. It’s incredibly awkward, but it’s not necessarily uncommon as far as Pelosi goes. In fact, impressions of her have begun containing stammering phrases.

Team Pelosi immediately responded by claiming the video was doctored, and that doctored videos of Pelosi aren’t uncommon. This includes Pelosi’s daughter Christine, and Pelosi’s Chief of Staff, Drew Hammill.

However, according to the Daily Wire, one expert has pointed out that the video has not been doctored except in the way of it being a super-cut of moments where Pelosi stammered:

“Hany Farid, a computer-science professor and digital-forensics expert at University of California, Berkeley, told The Post that there was no doubt that video had been altered,” NBC News reports. “But he said he believed the video Trump tweeted Thursday had not been slowed down.”

“Unlike the video referred to in The Washington Post article, I don’t believe that this video montage was slowed down. This montage, however, is highly deceptive as it compiles in rapid succession relatively small verbal stumbles in an attempt to portray Speaker Pelosi as stumbling through her press conference,” Farid told the outlet.

Pelosi’s attempt to save face just made her look worse, in my opinion. If the Speaker really wanted to clap back at Trump with effectiveness, she should have just owned it. However, the Democratic party has a problem with trying to look flawless at all times, making them look more like would-be Emporers with no clothes.

Alyssa Milano Hates the Concept of Dark Money in Politics, but she Likes Their Checks All the Same

In classic liberal fashion what they bleat about the loudest is what they are most guilty of themselves.

Alyssa Milano has been on an incessant political tear of late. The part time celebrity and full time social activist has been especially busy of late, with abortion on the front burner of her overheated political kitchen. Today she sent out a message about the unfair nature of financially-backed political groups.

Yes, the familiar bromide from the left about the vile nature of “dark money”! It’s special how they constantly trot out this ominous phrase absent any explanation about the implied nefariousness of it all. Alyssa seems particularly drawn to this political boogeyman, recently invoking it on the same issue.

That Milano has been in full foghorn mode since the Donald Trump election has become accepted as a given. We are almost inured to her dramatic turns on social media, pleading incessantly for causes she promises will bring about our demise, or something. She tours the country campaigning for candidates from areas where she does not live, maintaining a near-perfect record of losses by any name she has backed.

Adding to her losing record was her appearance in a Senate hearing to oppose the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh (who was approved for SCOTUS), calling for Congress to re-ratify the failed Equal Rights Amendment (it has not), and to promote a boycott by Hollywood if Georgia passed the heartbeat abortion bill (it was signed into law last week).

There is one other arena in which Milano comes out on the losing end: Facts. Looking over Alyssa’s travels on behalf of all of her causes a certain question is raised. My RedState podcast partner, Sarah Lee, has asked frequently if anyone is behind her globe-trotting efforts, and it turns out that indeed yes, there is. While this actress-vist is intoning the horrors of the venal power of “Dark Money” it turns out she is actually supported by a group falling under that very banner.

It was recently exposed that there is an anonymously-funded Democratic outfit dubbed Future Majority that tasks itself with influencing the upcoming elections and combating conservatism on social media. They are reported to begin with $60 million pledged towards efforts aimed at the 2020 election cycle. And, ass Politico notes, the group has been “active for months”, and is involved with “enlisting personalities like actress Alyssa Milano.”

The group is not only leaning towards the liberal agenda, it is comprised of Democrat party operatives — from the Obama administration.

Future Majority has enlisted advisers including Dan Sena, who was executive director of the DCCC for the last election, and Julianna Smoot, a deputy campaign manager on Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection effort. Two major Democratic donors are co-chairing the group: Philip Munger, son of Berkshire Hathaway billionaire Charles Munger, and Dan Tierney, founder of high-speed trading company GETGO. Keith Mestrich, president and CEO of Amalgamated Bank, is also helping fund the group.

Another key name is connected to the operation, according to Open Secrets.

Earlier this year, Democratic fundraiser Matthew Tompkins formed a super PAC called America’s Future Majority Fund PAC. With Tompkins, links between Future Majority and presidential contender Joe Biden begin to emerge. The Hill reported that Tompkins recently launched a pro-Biden super PAC, titled For the People PAC, with the aim of raising tens of millions of dollars to support Biden’s campaign.

This, despite Joe Biden himself coming forward to announce that he wants no support from super PACs. This is nothing more than lip service however, as Ms. Milano exemplifies. As she is decrying “dark money” she is also reported by Open Secrets to be working with Future Majority. This goes far to explain a rather curious contradiction taking place within her activism.

Milano was one of the louder supporters of the #MeToo movement, a position that sternly revisited during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings. However after months of her declaring the importance of stopping sexual harassment and believing all women she turned a 180 on the issue when Joe Biden was facing charges of his creepy behavior towards women, following his announced candidacy.

Suddenly the women’s rights warrior was defending Biden and dismissing any allegations made by women who complained about his behavior with them in the past. Seems the woman backed by the same dark money group founded by Biden’s people has fluid values on the subject based on who is involved. But then this is hardly the only subject with which Milano displays a fluid morality.

Months back she wrote an op-ed column for USA Today where she outlined all of the evils concerning dark money outfits and PACs that have influence on our democracy. And yet, as Open Secrets describes the group, “Future Majority will do much more than spend money on ads — primarily offering strategic advice and branding efforts to other Democratic groups. A nonprofit acting as a self-proclaimed “strategy center” for other groups represents a new kind of dark money group.”

It seems that when it comes to the evils of dark money groups, Alyssa Milano thinks they could be the worst thing about politics — until the check clears.

Wrong Audience: Los Angeles Enacts Travel Ban Against Alabama Over Abortion Law, Writes Letter Ordering an Immediate Repeal

[Screenshot from YouTube, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90l3pbMgNjg]

 

Geez louise.

Los Angeles County has banned travel to Alabama for a year in response to the red state’s abortion law (see more uproar over the legislation here and here).

Post-HB 314, LA’s making a sour face. County Supervisor Hilda Solis called it an “attack on reproductive rights and economic justice.”

Okay. But why in the world are the Democrats in Los Angeles trying to put themselves into the politics of another state? Are they expecting their protest to change Alabama’s mind? One thing I know about the Heart of Dixie is that it couldn’t give less of a flip what Hollywood believes, and the same goes for anyone in power in the City of Angels.

Here’s Hilda’s explanation:

“We must stand in solidarity and in opposition against extremist and unconstitutional laws that put the health and wellbeing of families at risk. The constitutional and human right to a safe and legal abortion is part of the very fabric of the United States. As such, Los Angeles County will stand against all attempts to dismantle the protections afforded by Roe v. Wade and the U.S. Constitution.”

If they’re against extremist laws, how’s their stance against New York (here and here). Also, what’s the position toward San Francisco (here)? On top of that, LA may wanna check out a little bit o’ the ol’ introspection (here).

The ban prevents any county employee from traveling to Alabama the Beautiful on official business. Exceptions’ll be made for emergency response training or other trips required by law.

Now here’s where it gets really dumb, as reported by Al.com:

LA County officials are also sending a letter to Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey and Legislative leaders calling for the measure’s immediate repeal. Similar letters will be sent to officials in Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, and Utah, all states considering their own restrictive abortion laws.

LA’s got just a smidge too high an opinion of itself.

Dear Los Angeles:

Like Randy Newman said, I love you. You’re a wonderland. But autonomous state governments don’t care about your opinion. About, literally, anything. Ever. At all. And people in Alabama, incidentally, are way tougher than you. You worry about pronouns and chew on kale. They wear hip holsters and eat stuff they saw in the woods.

Texas Ted Cruz socialism republicans Politics North Carolina Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Education democrats Culture Congress Bernie Sanders AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Socialism has been gaining in popularity over the last several years with young people – especially in the aftermath of Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-VT) surprisingly popular presidential run in 2016 and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY-14) media-driven meteoric rise to fame.

In addition to that, college liberals and socialists alike have increased their attempts at suppressing the voices of free thinking conservative students whose views differ from them on issues like illegal immigration, healthcare, and socialism.

Unfortunately, some school administrators have even gone along with them – or have implemented strict rules themselves over what can and can’t be said on campus.

In response to all of that, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has a message for today’s young socialists:

Stop trying to stifle the debate. Be open-minded instead of demanding your political opposition be silenced over differing views. Be willing to listen and respectfully engage.

Campus Reform‘s editor-in-chief Lawrence Jones recently interviewed Cruz on a number of hot topics, including free speech issues on campus. The Senator also talked about how liberal campaigns to shut down discussions merely because of disagreement were the antithesis of what the First Amendment was all about:

“Unfortunately, students…they’re not being taught to think,” Cruz said. “What’s defined as hate speech, by the way, is anything the Left disagrees with. The First Amendment wasn’t designed for popular speech. You actually don’t need the First Amendment if what you’re saying is popular. The First Amendment was designed to protect unpopular speech, to protect minority views, to protect views that are not in common agreement. And particularly the whole point about a college experience is learning to confront views you’ve never seen before.”

Adam Schiff Loses His Mind, Claims that Declassification of Trump-Russia Info Is “Un-American”

What? If anyone can make sense of Schiff’s logic here, congrats.

Rep. Adam Schiff, noted Russian truther and conspiracy monger, has spent the past few months demanding that the Mueller report be fully un-redacted. He even wants the grand jury material exposed, which would actually be illegal to do. He doesn’t care because he’s for “full transparency” and all that.

Well, not anymore. All the sudden, Schiff thinks it’s “un-American” for Bill Barr to de-classify materials related to the Trump-Russia investigation.

The move is likely to further anger Democrats who have said that Barr is using his position as the nation’s top law enforcement official to aggressively protect the president and attack his critics.

Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.), who as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee leads one of the ongoing congressional investigations of Trump, called the action “un-American.” Trump and Barr, Schiff said in a statement Thursday night, are conspiring to “weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies.” ‬

How exactly is not hiding things from the public supposed to “protect the President?” Democrats continue to live in some alter-reality where exposing truth to the American people is actually participating in a cover-up. We saw this with the Mueller report. Bill Barr released it nearly in full, minus what the law required to redact, and then he got accused of protecting the President anyway. None of this makes any sense.

Furthermore, how can you weaponize classified information unless it actually shows wrongdoing? And if it shows wrongdoing, why would Schiff want to keep that hidden from voters? There seems to be a strong contingent of Democrats and certain anti-Trump forces who think it’s actually better to have a maleficent intelligence state as long as they target the right people. It’s a very dangerous line to tow.

Schiff’s own hypocrisy in all this is laughably apparent.

Schiff and his Democrat colleagues are simply hacks. They are all about declassification and transparency when they think it’ll benefit them politically. But the moment the President moves to be more transparent on a matter that might expose Democrat corruption, they start screaming bloody murder about “muh sources and methods.”

The irony here is that while Schiff whines about weaponizing law enforcement, that actually did happen under Barack Obama. Despite that, Schiff is against using law enforcement to investigate the weaponizing of law enforcement. Try to figure that one out.

Meanwhile, the media are reacting exactly as you’d expect. They are actually rooting for Barr to not de-classify documents.

We know live in a world where the mainstream media, who make a living off leaked, confidential information, are now actively rooting against transparency simply because it might help Trump. You can’t make this stuff up. The President has driven these people absolutely insane.

As to Adam Schiff, he’s a clownish hypocrite. He deserves to be treated as such.

lol…
