Liz Cheney Rips Into AOC for Falsely Claiming Israel’s Omar/Tlaib Decision Was Based on Gender Discrimination

As I wrote Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) set herself up for a brutal reality check after she tweeted that Israel’s decision to bar her Congressional Squad pals Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was an example of “bigotry” and an implied desire for the country to ban Muslims.

To recap, here are the reasons Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave for rejecting Omar’s and Tlaib’s request to visit Israel:

They were entirely valid reasons, of course, based on what we know of both Omar’s and Tlaib’s anti-Semitic history. But to AOC, it was not just a slight against persons of color – it also had to do with the fact that Omar and Tlaib were women. Here’s what she tweeted:

Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) has, since Day One, been unafraid to take various Squad members to task for their falsehoods, recklessness, and outright stupidity. AOC’s Thursday tweet was one of those instances where Cheney had heard enough.

Here’s how Cheney responded to Ocasio-Cortez’s claims:

The Squad’s frequent use of the “WOC” card is well-known and has been called out often by numerous Republican members of Congress including Cheney and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (TX).

It may seem tiresome to keep pointing it out, but it’s important that Republicans continue to do so, if for no other reason than to expose the fraudulent image she’s painted of herself as some fierce feminist superhero able to leap tall buildings and slay any contrarian argument in a single bound.

Rashida Tlaib Gives Donald Trump And Benjamin Netanyahu HUGE P.R. Victory

How the “Public Relations” wheel spins round and round.

As I mentioned here yesterday in my piece here at Red State , I was worried that while Israel had every right to ban people coming into their country, they would get smeared P.R. wise.

From my article…

Pelosi is going to have to walk a fine line here. The one HUGE advantage she has is that Donald Trump has already mixed it up with these two. The media will run with picking on people of color nonsense and that he got Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to play along.

While I had people arguing with me about the point, I still stand by it. Everything is run through a P.R. lense and if you want to win the war you better understand these battles. Just saying it doesn’t matter is not enough and quite frankly wishful thinking.

Well, what a difference 24 hours can make.

One of the stated reasons for this visit was for Congressperson Rashida Tlaib to visit her 90-year-old Grandma. As she stated in her request for a humanitarian waiver from the Israeli government she may never get to see her Granmum again who resides in the West Bank of Israel.

(Sorry folks, there is no Palestine. You can blame the body double to former Beatle Ringo Starr, Yasser Arafat, for that debacle.)

As my colleague Bonchie covered here earlier today in this piece Rashida Tlaib Shuns Her Own Grandmother To Trash Israel maybe she was not expecting that waiver to be granted.

That request was granted by Israel with the only condition being that she not promote BDS. Within hours though, Tlaib had changed her mind.

Think about what she’s saying.

Her position is that she values promoting the anti-Semitic BDS movement so much that she’d rather let her grandmother die before visiting her if it means not getting to savage Israel for a few days. Who thinks like this?

Oops.

That backfired quickly.

I’m going to run with the theory that they believed not only would Israel block both of them from going to protest but also block the humanitarian request. When the government of Israel granted her request to visit her Grandmum she was put in a position she NEVER anticipated and she had to come up with some screwball excuse.

Yet that worked perfectly in favor of Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu from a P.R. standpoint.

Yesterday they ganged up on some harmless ladies just wanting to go on a tour of the Holy Land. Today with Tlaib scrambling to come up with an excuse for NOT visiting her 90 yr old Matriarch she turned the whole narrative around.

In less than 24 hours. That is Trump-like impressive in terms of running a news cycle.

I can’t wait to see what the ladies of the “Progressive Cheer Squad” come up with next to do to not only try to knock Trump down a notch but also give Nancy Pelosi such a splitting headache she might send them overseas and not allow them back into the country. Which would be very Trump-like also and be another P.R.victory for POTUS 45.

God Bless America.

A Popular Meme Points Out the Idiocy of Democratic Dissent as Women Long to Be Free as Guns

First of all, in case you missed it: “Best & Stupidest This Week: The UK Wars With Cutlery, Offers Knife-Free Chicken Boxes & Tales Of Murder For Dinner.”

And now:

American politics could really be an interesting place: Imagine two sides with very different ideologies, frequently and thoughtfully debating the merits of their passionate principles on the national stage.

Fascinating.

What we largely have instead is a game of money and power propelled by enough hot air to fly the Hindenburg to Timbuktu.

And in this present anti-Trump era — where Democrats are concerned — nothing seems to matter anymore. So far as I can tell, people tend to just say whatever’s the most inflammatory, despite it having not the slightest hair-thin tether to reality.

Every day, there’s a new batch of assertions that are as completely foolish as they are pitifully transparent.

And looking over the silliness, I recently came across a meme presumably based on a December 2015 tweet.

The original Twitter post came by way of a comedienne; subsequently, I believe it deserves the leeway of a joke. But when placed in the arena of serious ideas, #notsogood.

Here’s the piece of pro-Democrat protest:

HuffPost doesn’t appear terribly opposed: “The Constitution Gives Gun Owners Greater Rights Than Women.”

And some tweeters were stoked:

Gay Pride Lion loved it:

But Twitter also noted the nuttiness:

Responsibly Armed hit upon a certain considerable truth:

And this leads me to the meme. It reads “I Dream Women Will One Day Have the Same Rights as Guns.”

That statement is, to me, a fantastic indication of where we are — the level of imbecility that’s become the national dialogue. People are saying and posting and sharing things which make absolutely no sense. Why speak reason when you can stick your finger down your throat and prop-puke words that ring the alarm?

Beto O’Rourke does it (here). So does Nancy Pelosi (here and here). The politisphere is brimming with bulemic boobs.

As for the meme, witness a bit of sense spoken into the madness:

She wants women not allowed on airplanes.
She wants women not allowed in schools.
She wants women kept out of government buildings.
She wants women kept away from children.
Businesses can post signs: “No women allowed.”
She wants women severely restricted in Hawaii and California.
Women will not be allowed anywhere alcohol is consumed.
Women cannot be carried without a special permit.
Women will be prohibited from having certain popular accessories.
A man can now own multiple women, but only after a background check.

Right. I pine for a day when the absurdity will cease, and impassioned proselytizers from all sides will tout the explained worthiness of their ideas.

But that day won’t be today. Party on.

Feminist Writer Fights the White Power by Castigating a Gentleman’s Kindness. Twitter Rains Down Like an Ugly Boss

At some point early on — so goes the word on the street — feminism was about women’s inner strength and equal opportunity.

Somehow, that’s been traded in for entirely different things.

Such certainly seems the case for Caroline Rothstein, writer for BuzzFeed, Marie Claire, and Cosmo.

On a recent flight, feminist Caroline was triggered by a terrible thing: a gentleman.

To the author’s horror, someone bigger and stronger than she offered to perform more easily the chore of taking down her luggage from the overhead compartment.

But it gets worse: The guy offering to help her was…hold on — let me make sure no one’s coming…look left, look right…okay…try to not make any loud noises…but the guy trying to be considerate was…white.

Yes — it was that bad:

He was one of them middle-aged whiteys.

Oy.

Oddly, Caroline is white, too.

But just ’cause you are one doesn’t mean you have to like ’em. Woke up, cracker devils.

Still, some Twitter users gave her mucho grief:

Tipping Point’s Liz Wheeler got in on the action:

So did RedWhiteAndFYou’s outspoken Mindy Robinson:

Buzzword Studios pointed out the whole pot & kettle part of the situation:

Here’s a really good one:

Well, following the fallout, something incredible happened. Caroline, essentially, printed a retraction:

Nicely done. Honestly, it was really good.

But what a wacko time in which we’re living, when someone’s attempted assistance can be met with anything other than gratitude. And what a ridiculous place we’ve reached, where a white person thinks they’re hipper by fighting the power of other people’s whiteness. And my, some modern feminists, what a big sexism you have. “The better to be a goofball with, my dear.”

If you’re impressed with Caroline’s mea culpea — as am I — follow her on Twitter and not only learn about feminism, but other things, too:

From the “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” file, part eleventy billion:

Caroline Rothstein is a self-described poet, performer and educator. One descriptor that is missing is “woke scold”.

Rothstein was waiting to exit a flight when a nearby gentleman made the woeful, serious offense of trying to help get her carry-on bag from the overhead bin.

Shocked at the audacity of a man…a WHITE man…showing common decency, Rothstein summoned her inner p***y hat to courageously #Resist the deep, dark oppression of courtesy. In the face of such dastardly kindness, Rothstein could be silent no longer. Her righteous indignation spilled out right there in the aisle of the plane, for all to see.

Gillette CEO Says the Billions of Dollars Lost Over the “Toxic Masculinity” Ad Was Worth It

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-8-620x378 Gillette CEO Says the Billions of Dollars Lost Over the “Toxic Masculinity” Ad Was Worth It toxic masculinity Social Justice Proctor and Gamble millennials gillette Front Page Stories Feminism Featured Story Business & Economy Business Allow Media Exception

Screenshot: YouTube

Gillette’s infamous ad that pushed the idea that men contain “toxic masculinity” is a perfect example of how not to advertise your product. The ad not only created a firestorm of controversy online, but it also helped cost the company billions of dollars.

That would be $5.24 billion to be exact.

(READ: Gillette’s “Woke” Ad That Insulted Men Cost P&G Billions)

But according to Gillette CEO Gary Coombe, the billions of dollars that the company cost parent company Proctor and Gamble was totally worth it. According to MarketingWeek, the ad was a “price worth paying” if it helped to reach the millennial generation.

“I don’t enjoy that some people were offended by the film and upset at the brand as a consequence,” said Coombe. “That’s not nice and goes against every ounce of training I’ve had in this industry over a third of a century. But I am absolutely of the view now that for the majority of people to fall more deeply in love with today’s brands you have to risk upsetting a small minority and that’s what we’ve done.”

Coombe is telling himself fantasies.

You don’t lose that much money because you upset a “small minority” of people. This is billions of dollars gone. You upset an entire sex by essentially telling them that every radical feminist claim about them is true. This includes millennials who turned their back on the shaving company after they attempted the most off-putting “how do you do fellow kids” moment in modern history.

Coombe’s mention of his industry training over a third of a century long. It’s my belief that this training is part of what got him in trouble. Usually, when something like this happens, a boycott may only last for so long. However, we’re living in the age of the internet. We can now have our needs shipped straight to our door by pressing a few buttons on our phone.

Before that, we would go to the store to pick up our products, and over time we may forget our anger at a brand and pick it up if the price is right. Now we have subscriptions to products, with shaving being a popular one. We don’t have to go to the store and be tempted to forgive. Our new shaving products come right to our door every other week.

Coombe tried to appeal to younger men by insulting them based on a movement that became infamous as quickly as it became famous in an age where his product is less popular than ever, and different methods of doing business have taken hold.

Coombe made a horrific call and the proof is in the numbers. Now we’ll see if the good Captain Coombe learns from it, or continues to poke massive holes into the side of his ship in the name of looking “woke.”

So Feminists are Just Going to Ignore the Fact that Lena Dunham “Sexually Assaulted” Brad Pitt?

Westlake Legal Group Dunham-620x325 So Feminists are Just Going to Ignore the Fact that Lena Dunham “Sexually Assaulted” Brad Pitt? underwear sexual harassment Sexual Assault Lena Dunham kiss Hollywood Front Page Stories Feminism Featured Story brad pitt Allow Media Exception

“It’s okay when we do it.” It’s the unofficial motto of the left, and we get daily reminders that the things that the left considers to be grave sins are perfectly okay to do if they’re the ones doing it.

Take, for instance, the feminist movement’s former sweetheart Lena Dunham. Dunham was on the front lines of “believing all women” until it was someone close to her who was in the crosshairs. Dunham immediately moved to defend her longtime show writer Murray Miller, then under pressure, caved and turned on Miller.

But apparently, her stance that sexual assault is bad is about as wobbly as her loyalties. Dunham made headlines when she attempted to force a kiss on Brad Pitt during the premiere of Once Upon a Time In Hollywood.

She even brags about a moment of flashing Pitt her underwear while on set on the movie.

I should say that I personally don’t see the harm in a surprise peck, and understand the context behind Dunham’s underwear flash towards Pitt. My problem is that Dunham and self-professed feminists have expressed that these kinds of things are wrong to do, and even have gone so far as to call it things like “sexual assault.”

Imagine if someone like Danny DeVito or Jerry Seinfeld had done what Dunham did. Imagine Adam Driver trying to sneak a kiss, or Gary Oldman flashing his underwear at an actress. There would be outrage pouring down from the hills like a broken dam, flooding the media and internet with hashtags and opinion pieces.

Yet, we’re not hearing much from Hollywood or the feminist elite. There’s a smattering of tweets calling Dunham a hypocrite, but there is no reawakening of a movement. Dunham isn’t the right sex for the outrage to take root. Feminism has nothing to say about sexual things forced on men.

And herein lies my problem with this entire thing. This story is just slipping into the background over the fact that when it comes to men, there seems to be little care in what happens to them. There is no outrage for Pitt. There are no think pieces about how toxic femininity has made women doing something we’d be furious with a man over pardonable.

If you’re wondering why people can’t take feminism or #MeToo seriously, this is why. It’s because when women do wrong — according to feminists who dictate what right and wrong is — it’s not wrong. It’s okay when they do it.

Gillette’s “Woke” Ad that Insulted Men Cost P&G Billions

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-8-620x378 Gillette’s “Woke” Ad that Insulted Men Cost P&G Billions toxic masculinity Social Justice Politics PG Misandry gillette Front Page Stories Feminism Featured Story Business & Economy Allow Media Exception

The personal product-driven mega-corporation Proctor & Gamble had a pretty successful run last quarter, even beating Wall Street predictions. Only one of their brands found themselves deeply in the negative, and it just so happens to be the one that insulted its customer base in the name of being “woke.”

According to Reuters, Gillette suffered a net loss of billions of dollars last quarter. That’s billions with a “b”:

However, P&G reported a net loss of about $5.24 billion, or $2.12 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, due to an $8 billion non-cash writedown of Gillette. For the same period last year, P&G’s net income was $1.89 billion, or 72 cents per share.

According to Reuters, P&G chalked the billions in dollars lost up “to foreign exchange fluctuations, increased competition and a contracting market for blades and razors as consumers in developed markets shave less frequently.”

They’re partly right. A net loss of that much money can only mean that those who do shave have abandoned Gillette en masse, and rightly so. Gillette’s commercial that blanketed the male gender with the accusation of “toxic masculinity” while using feminist buzzwords and clips of hard-left news organizations was one of the most hated commercials of the past decade.

As P&G continued to see profits go up for all of their brands, Gillette began suffering profit drops that were revealed last April. Apparently, the drops never stopped.

Perhaps P&G isn’t willing to come forward yet with the fact that they made a monumental error in assuming men would take the “toxic masculinity” commercial well, but they should soon. The brand is damaged enough to lose billions, and men aren’t coming back, especially with cheaper alternatives embracing men for who they are and not assuming the worst about them.

I personally go out of my way to not buy Gillette products of any kind over the insult and I know many men who do the same. The commercial wasn’t just a call to fight toxic masculinity, it was an attack on men from a company known to create commercials that specialize in attacking the male gender.

The sooner P&G fires whoever thought this was a good idea and begins to move toward making amends with its customer base, the better, but it may be politically stuck now. Walking back their stance may cause them a lot of trouble with the SJW community who know how to raise a mob.

As I’ve said before, however, the mob is more bark than bite. If P&G can show some backbone and apologize, they will invite the wrath of the SJW mob but they may begin to staunch the blood flow from a very still-wide wound.

Are #MeToo Senate Democrats About to Lynch This USAF General Just Because They Think They Can

FILE – In this Thursday, Nov. 3, 2016 file photo, Air Force Gen. John Hyten, the incoming commander of the United States Strategic Command, speaks to reporters following a change of command ceremony at Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue, Neb. On Saturday, Nov. 17, 2017, the top officer at U.S. Strategic Command says an order from President Donald Trump or any of his successors to launch nuclear weapons can be refused if that order is determined to be illegal. (AP Photo/Nati Harnik)

USAF General John E. Hyten, commander of US Strategic Command, that is the combatant command responsible for all the nation’s nuclear forces and for ballistic missile defense, has been nominated to be Vice Chief of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Under most circumstances the nomination of a general who has spent most of his life subject to the constant scrutiny imposed upon anyone in the Personnel Reliability Program would have ensure fairly smooth sailing. One might question whether we really want an Air Force officer who has spent a lot of time in a stovepipe career field as the number two officer in the US Armed Forces, but other than that philosophical question, it should have been smooth sailing. It isn’t.

Col. Kathryn Splet­stoser has accused Hyten, who is currently responsible for the country’s nuclear arsenal as the head of U.S. Strategic Command, of making unwanted sexual contact with her on several occasions in 2017 while the two were traveling for work.

Spletstoser accuses General Hyten of sexual assault on several occasions:

The first time was in January 2017, she alleges, when Hyten grabbed her left hand as she was exiting a work meeting in his hotel room in Palo Alto, Calif., pulling it in toward his groin so she could feel his erection before she moved her hand away. In June 2017, Spletstoser said, Hyten interrupted a work meeting in his Washington, D.C., hotel room to fondle her breasts and kiss her — and she pushed him away and admonished him, she said. That prompted Hyten to panic, she said, and ask her through tears: “Are you going to tell on me?” Though she felt he had clearly “crossed a line,” she assured him she would not, she said.

Yet it was during the Reagan National Defense Forum in December 2017 that Spletstoser said Hyten made his most aggressive move, arriving uninvited at her hotel room in workout clothes carrying a binder, and claiming he wanted to discuss work matters. Within minutes, Spletstoser said, Hyten had pinned her against him and begun “grinding on me hard, like he wants to take my clothes off and have sex . . . and then I realize, he’s ejaculating.”

Pardon me if I find this latter tale difficult to take seriously. Hyten had aides and he had a personal security detail. I just don’t see how this happened.

Here’s the problem. While the allegations appear to be “he-said-she-said” because they were made against a general officer they have actually been investigated. The results aren’t terribly helpful to Spletstoser.

The Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations investigated Spletstoser’s allegations but could not substantiate her claims. In a statement, U.S. Strategic Command spokesman Bill Clinton said the command had “fully cooperated” with the probe, noting that Air Force officials found that “there was insufficient evidence to support any finding of misconduct on the part of Gen. Hyten.”

But according to a former senior Air Force official privy to the investigation’s findings, the testimony of other witnesses directly contradicts Spletstoser’s accusations. The official said that sometimes, Spletstoser also contradicted herself, though she disputes that claim.

In fact, former Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson, a biological female (somehow it seems to be more and more necessary to add this qualifying statement these days) said, “I believe General Hyten was falsely accused.”

Spletstoser claims she had her career ruined because she wouldn’t go along, others claim that her career was ruined because she was pretty f***ed up at her job and then made the allegations to try to salvage her career.

Spletstoser’s service records, which she provided to The Washington Post, indicate that she had routinely received accolades from her commanders before that point. Hyten wrote in late 2017 that she was in the “top 1%” of all the people in her rank that “I have seen in my 36 years of service,” noting that she was “ready today” to be promoted to brigadier general. The authenticity of the documents could not be verified.

Sworn statements, provided by Spletstoser, from the inquiry into her professional conduct that concluded in early 2018 indicated that while some in the command took offense at her “negative behavior,” they also blamed Hyten for giving her “the highest of top-cover.”

In the interview, Spletstoser acknowledged that she was tough, foulmouthed and often brusque — traits that she attributes to her Army background and the fact that part of her job was to “clean house” in her group. But she said that after Hyten’s management style was questioned, she believes he attempted to “destroy me and my life, my career, everything” to protect his reputation.

Let me say a word about hyperbole in officer efficiency reports. What Hyten said about Spletstoser he’s probably said about a dozen other officers. When an officer’s record goes before a board it sort of appears in a vacuum. There is no way to know what the rater’s have said about your contemporaries without an in-depth inquiry. The real question before you as you write an efficiency report is “do I want this officer promoted.” It you do, then that officer gets over-the-top praise. I, myself, have been at least once styled “the best company commander in the division” and have had early promotion and accelerate schooling recommended dozens of times. That and $12.77 will get me a ersatz cup of Third World coffee at Starbucks.

The fact that Spletstoser was relieved as the result of an outside investigation, not by Hyten telling her to pack her sh** and get off the battlefield speaks volumes. The fact that Hyten is criticized in that investigation for protecting her is also significant.

The dilemma facing Senate Democrats is how to handle charges of sexual harassment or sexual assault when the charges have been exhaustively investigated and when the complainant seems to be acting in retaliation for an adverse personnel action. Will Hyten get the full Kavanaugh treatment despite Wilson’s opinion that he’s the victim here? Or will the #MeToo harpies concede that women are just as capable (just…hahahaha) of acting vindictively as men to settle scores? Will the Senate Armed Services Committee take the position that any male officer is de facto guilty of any allegation of sexual misconduct no matter how detailed the investigation clearing him? Will “Believe Women” be revealed to everyone as the pseudo-religious cult many of us have known it was since the Clarence Thomas hearing? Will Mike Pence give Hyten advice on how to conduct himself socially in he future if he hasn’t figured that out yet?

Abortion Activist Alyssa Milano Defends Death Row Inmates, Says They Are “Actual People” Unlike Unborn Babies

When it comes to priorities, you’d think a person like actress Alyssa Milano who paints herself as a compassionate leftist who cares about protecting the innocent and vulnerable in this country would actually do something to prove their commitment.

Such is not the case with Milano, who on Thursday put a disturbing twist on an old, tiresome liberal argument about the death penalty vs. abortion.

2020 presidential candidate and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) posted a Tweet yesterday noting she was prepared to take executive action if elected president on the issue of gun rights, because “thoughts and prayers are not enough”

Milano responded that she was fully on board with that idea. But another Twitter user reminded her of her support for abortion, which has killed far more innocent lives than gun violence:

The pro-abortion mouthpiece did not like that reminder, and fired back by suggesting pro-lifers were hypocritical on the issue of life by referencing the recent reinstatement of the federal death penalty by the Trump administration, and declaring that death row inmates are “actual people”, unlike unborn babies:

She was promptly called out on her phony (and disturbing) comparison by other Twitter users:

The arguments did not phase Milano, however. She doubled down in the comments:

Bless her heart.
