Apparently It’s “National Period Day” and I’m Not Talking About the Hockey Kind

Westlake Legal Group horses-1348383_1280-620x269 Apparently It’s “National Period Day” and I’m Not Talking About the Hockey Kind Sales tax Politics Pink Tax National Period Day media bias Lunatics Liberals leftists Left Wingers Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Crazy Allow Media Exception 2020

Just in case you were questioning whether the left have gone completely insane or not, here’s a story to quell your doubts.

Yesterday was apparently deemed “National Period Day,” where crazed left wingers joined together to protest for menstrual equality and removing taxes on tampons. As you can see, there’s real oppression going on in this country.

Non-profit organization PERIOD launched the inaugural Period Day Saturday to call for menstrual equity. The organization held rallies in every U.S. state to discuss period poverty and demand that menstrual products become more accessible.Menstrual product company Always found in a study that one in five girls in the U.S. have left school early or missed a day of class because they did not have access to period products.

Where to start with this.

How many different “days” can we have at this point? There’s literally some leftist cause almost every single day of the week at this point, plus the month long gay pride celebrations. Even if one thinks this is a worthy cause, is it really worth of it’s on designated day? Come on.

Also, note ridiculous claims like this.

In January, Reuters found that nearly two-thirds of low-income women in St. Louis could not afford menstrual hygiene products, including tampons or pads. Nearly half of the survey group said there are many times they cannot afford both food and period products at the same time. Many resort to using cloth, rags, diapers or other forms of paper products instead.

Thirty-five states have not deemed period products as essential items, subjecting menstrual products to a sales tax that many refer to as the “pink tax.” If the products were classified as hygiene products — as Rogaine and Viagra are — they would be eligible to be tax-free. PERIOD seeks to eliminate the pink tax as well as make products free and available in schools, shelters and prisons.

A box of tampons, of which is only needed to be bought every few months costs about $6. The tax on that might add up to around $0.50 and over the course of the year, you are looking at around $3 in extra costs due to taxes. Does anyone really believe that 2/3rds of low income woman don’t have $6 every two months to buy tampons? Or that $3 a year in sales taxes is what is making or breaking women? This is pure, nonsensical garbage. Even the lowest income among us typically are not going to be helped by wiping away $3 in taxes a year. It’s a total non issue. You can look around on the ground a few hours for one day a year and find that much in lost change.

There are real problems in this world. Real persecution, real oppression, and real suffering. How shallow does one’s life have to be to make your cause fighting the “pink tax?” This is first world problems on steroids and it’s just as laughable that CBS reports this as if it’s not lunacy.

Bill Maher Hilariously Calls Out Woke White Liberals By Suggesting A ‘Honky Tax’

Westlake Legal Group martin-luther-king-speech-SCREEENSHOT-620x326 Bill Maher Hilariously Calls Out Woke White Liberals By Suggesting A ‘Honky Tax’ white guilt racism progressives Liberals Hollywood Front Page Stories Featured Story Entertainment Culture Bill Maher

Bill Maher is often hit or miss with his comedy and his social analysis, and he’s almost never what one would call conservative in his approach. But in a recent closing segment from his show, he took a pretty nice blowtorch to the ridiculousness of white liberals being embarrassed and constantly, obsequiously apologizing for the color of their skin.

Before going any further, know that there’s some pretty strong language in this bit. But it’s also pretty funny, so watching it is encouraged. Especially if you or any of your friends are, or even if you just know,  white people who, as Maher says, “bore the *$^# out of black people at parties” with their apologies for white privilege.

Maher starts the bit using Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s refusal to be offended by Shane Gillis’ old podcast jokes that got him booted from Saturday Night Live’s cast almost immediately after being hired.

“Because if he wasn’t offended, well…someone had to be,” Maher says, before talking about the “weird self-loathing” and “tedious virtue signaling” of white liberals. He calls out actress Rosanna Arquette for saying she was disgusted and ashamed of being white on Twitter.

“You think it’s hard being a black man in a white man’s world? Try being a white woman who feels bad about you being a black man in white man’s world,” Maher quips.

But perhaps the best part is when he says the constant flagellating puts the burden on black people to absolve white liberals for their whiteness.

“It’s really asking black people to, again, do something for you. Forgive me. Absolve me. Recognize that I’m one of the good white people,” Maher says. “Jesus, haven’t black people suffered enough?”

“How many white liberals would pay actual reparations…real money taken out of their paychecks? If being white is really this toxic for society, let’s tax it,” Maher says. “Let’s tax whiteness. A honky tax…we’ll calculate your exact level of white lameness then charge you a caucasian offset fee.”

Be sure to stick around for what he says we should be doing as a society to “get to the finish line” on race. Hint: it involves recognizing that we’re all people, regardless of skin color.

Media Try to Cancel Drew Brees Over Religious Beliefs

One of the most upstanding people to ever play in the NFL is currently under assault.

His grave sin? Appearing in a video connected to Focus on the Family, that supposed horrible hate group that (gasp!) promotes family values and church going. They also support traditional marriage, so they must be ostracized and put on lists by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

In the video, Brees (a Christian) simply encouraged students to take their bibles to school and live their faith. Contrary to popular liberal belief, that is in fact completely legal.

This led to heads exploding.

Deadspin, which is owned by Ted Cruz, went with a ridiculous story called Drew Brees Appears In Video for Gay Conversion Therapy Sickos, Doesn’t Understand What the Big Deal Is.

Last week, New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees appeared in a brief video promoting “Bring Your Bible To School Day,” which, whatever. In itself, it’s probably a 3 on the scale of odd things an athlete can do with his free time. What’s actually frustrating—though frankly not too surprising—is Brees did the promo for Focus On The Family, which puts on the Bible Day and publishes the website that Brees’s video directed viewers to.

The horror.

Here’s a local New Orleans reporter asserting Brees is “problematic.” That’ll go over like a lead balloon in a city that loves him.

Then you had people just absolutely losing their minds, such as this blue check mark “journalist.”

I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest Brees has a job in the NFL because he’s one of the five best QBs to ever play the game and will own nearly every major record by the time he retires. The reflexive bringing up of Kaepernick by political activists who obviously haven’t the slightest idea about football is always amusing.

Former teammate Reggie Bush came to Brees’ defense.

This is all so stupid.

Whether one believes in traditional marriage or not (and as far as I know, Brees himself is pro-LGBT on that issue), the idea that you can never be connected to a group as mundane as Focus on the Family now is ludicrous. It shows just how badly conservatives have lost the culture war on this issue. It’s one thing to argue people can have different beliefs. It’s another to assert that certain people can’t hold their beliefs at all, and in the case of Christians who believe in traditional marriage, that’s simply not allowed anymore in the public sphere.

Brees will be fine, but this does show the brazenness with which cancel culture is operating. No one is off limits, not even for the smallest perceived “offense,” and you will be made to kneel or suffer the consequences. It didn’t matter that Brees is beloved in his city, is a philanthropist, and has always treated everyone with respect. A single video and they were after him.

I don’t know what the the solution to this is. I do know we can’t exist as a society in perpetuity operating this way.

Bill Barr Booked a Party at Trump’s Hotel and the Left Lost Their Minds, Then the Facts Came Out

It’s almost like they are overlooking relevant facts on purpose to push a narrative. Nah, couldn’t be.

If you got on political social media today, you probably witnessed about eight hours of freakout centered on Bill Barr hosting a party at the Trump Hotel in DC. Here’s a sampling of some of the flailing about that took place.

From the headlines and the responses, you’d think Barr was evil incarnate, reaching a level of corruption never before seen in modern American politics. Taking DOJ money and using it to pay $30,000 to Donald Trump’s hotel? Beyond the pale.

Well, it would be if that was what actually happened.

So what’s really going on here? This wasn’t government money. It wasn’t funneling DOJ funds to Donald Trump or mixing business with pleasure. Rather, Bill Barr took his own money and booked a 4 hour party at Trump’s hotel for his friends and family, totaling about 200 attendees. Real scandalous stuff.

This entire outrage is stupid. Barr is free to spend his money as he wants. If he wants to burn a ridiculous sum on a Christmas party, more power to him. It wouldn’t be my choice, but it’s his money. The idea that this is corruption or a conflict of interest simply doesn’t add up. I saw one person suggest this was a “bribe.” Why would Barr need to bribe Trump? Wouldn’t it be the other way around if you buy into the conspiracy theories about them being in league together?

And does anyone think Trump cares about the few thousand dollars his business will clear after all the staff, food, and facility expenses are paid? Of course he doesn’t. The guy may not be as rich as he claims, but he’s still filthy rich.

I do like the fact that Barr seems to enjoy triggering these people. It’s refreshing to see a political appointee throw some shades on and ignore the woke mob for a change.

Here’s How Hard Democrats and the Media Are Rooting for a Recession

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-2-2-620x317 Here’s How Hard Democrats and the Media Are Rooting for a Recession Rooting Interest recession Politics nbc MSNBC Montage media bias Mashup Liberals left jobs Harmful Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story fake news Economy donald trump democrats David Rutz CNN CBS ABC

If you’ve noticed a strong uptick in doom and gloom about the economy lately, you aren’t imagining it.

With the Mueller report blowing up on the pad, Democrats and the media needed a new strategy and they think they’ve found something. Specifically, they’ve honed in on two things: Making the case that Donald Trump is chaotic and rooting for a recession. The latter they are hoping hits next year, just in time for the 2020 election.

How hard are they rooting for a recession? This hard.

It’s as if the talking points went out and they are reciting them in unison. It doesn’t matter that unemployment is low and the fundamentals of the economy are strong, not perfect, but still strong. The left have decided the best thing to do is will a recession into happening, and make no mistake, a constant barrage of negative coverage can shake markets and employers.

Of course, a recession would profoundly hurt normal Americans but those in Acela corridor don’t care about that. They’ve got their big bank accounts and recession proof jobs. Seeing an economic slowdown is a price they are willing to pay, forget the collateral damage. Getting rid of Trump is the only thing that matters.

I’ll also point out the immense hypocrisy and inconsistency of Democrats and their media allies talking down the current economy while they continually tried to prop up the slowest recovery on record under Barack Obama. This is how it always happens. When a Democrat is president, any news is good news. When it’s a Republican, even good reports must be spun into negatives. Everything bad that happens under Democrats is headlined as being “unexpected.” You’ve seen the song and dance before.

In this case, even if a recession comes, it’s likely not coming for another 2 years or so (normal cycles dictate we will have another recession eventually). There’s no reason to be beating this drum right now except to try to suppress market and consumer confidence, perhaps speeding up the process. Nothing we are seeing from the left or the media is genuine concern or honest analysis. It’s purely politics and should be treated as such.

Liberals are turning into fascists, says … Piers Morgan?

Westlake Legal Group piers-fascist-left Liberals are turning into fascists, says … Piers Morgan? The Blog progressives political correctness Piers Morgan PC Culture Liberals Fascism cancel culture Ben Shapiro

Second look at Piers Morgan? This is a couple of days old but still well worth watching, if just to see Piers Morgan and Ben Shapiro in the same room — and largely agreeing on the danger of PC culture. Morgan puts this entirely on his own political allies, arguing that liberals are employing “a kind of fascism” to silence everyone who won’t agree to live under their diktats. If you think differently, or heaven forfend speak differently, Morgan tells Shapiro, liberals will “ruin your life … scream abuse at you,” and completely destroy whatever vestiges remain of your career and family (via Townhall):

Liberals wonder where populism originates, Morgan tells Shapiro, but completely miss the truth — they have created it through their own illiberalism. “Populism is rising because liberals have become unbearable, and I speak as a liberal, okay? Liberals,” Morgan continues, “have become utterly, pathetically illiberal and it’s a massive problem. … What’s the point of calling yourself a liberal if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view?”

That’s an easy question to answer — it’s because actual liberals have been eclipsed by progressives who still use the “liberal” identity as sheep’s clothing. Progressives are not ‘liberal’ in either the classic or even modern sense. They are proto-fascists who vent their spleens at every opportunity and yet claim that criticism of them is either a symptom of racism, sexism, colonialism, capitalism, or whatever -ism is fashionably unfashionable at the moment. Morgan has it spot-on in that the point isn’t to win on policy or intellectual grounds but to silence everyone and take charge by force or the threat of personal destruction. That’s how the fascists came to power in the 1920s and 1930s in Europe, and today’s hard-line progressives want to use that same path to power. Only today, they call it “cancel culture” as cover for its fascist qualities.

Be sure to enjoy this moment of unvarnished truth-telling before it gets memory-holed. Maybe we can watch this again instead of the hostless Emmy awards.

Here’s a Totally Not Insane Video of Liberals Reacting to Conservative Signs

Westlake Legal Group horses-1348383_1280-620x269 Here’s a Totally Not Insane Video of Liberals Reacting to Conservative Signs youtube violent Video signs Politics Liberals insane Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story deranged democrats Daily Caller Crazy Conservatives

One of the odder occurrences after Donald Trump’s election has been the propensity for certain liberals to simply lose it. Who can forget the viral video of the woman screaming at the sky as Donald Trump was sworn in?

Just in case you haven’t been exposed to the levels of insanity currently propagating on college campuses and within left wing activism, the Daily Caller has put together a montage of just how crazy even the mere site of conservative thought is driving people on the left.

Some of these even surprised me.

There’s a good case that most of these people should be committed. The vulgarity, the violent outbursts, and the inability to control one’s emotions. At one point, you see a young women cursing and then deciding that poll dancing on a street sign made sense in her protest of ICE. At another, you see a woman shrieking in terror at the mere site of a conservative holding a sign. People run over to make sure she’s not being harmed. Nope, she’s just that unhinged.

Politics is doing something to our society and it’s not good for a lot of people. If your reaction to those on the opposite side of the aisle is to legitimately lose your mind, screaming and flailing, you shouldn’t be following politics. You should be asking yourself why your life is so devoid of purpose that such a reaction would happen from within you.

The SDNY Just Crushed One of the Left’s Biggest Dreams

Westlake Legal Group michael-cohen1-620x317 The SDNY Just Crushed One of the Left’s Biggest Dreams Trump Investigation sdny Mueller Investigation Michael Cohen Liberals left-wing Lanny Davis Investigation Closed Front Page Stories Front Page fox news Featured Story dreams donald trump doj democrats crushed

FILE – This April 11, 2018 file photo shows attorney Michael Cohen in New York. President Donald Trump said Sunday, April 15, 2018, that all lawyers are now “deflated and concerned” by the FBI raid on his personal attorney Cohen’s home and office. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer, File)

The news cycle has been insane the past few days so this hasn’t gotten much press, but it’s a pretty big deal.

After the Mueller report failed to deliver the silver bullet against Trump, those obsessed with taking him out (because it’s not like we have an election next year or something) needed a new hope. It couldn’t just be over and rationality that perhaps Trump simply didn’t break any laws wasn’t entertained. Instead, the dream shifted to the SDNY.

Take this piece over at Newsweek.

Legal analyst and Above the Law editor Elie Mystal told MSNBC on Saturday said that if President Donald Trump isn’t reelected in 2020, he could be arrested immediately by the Southern District of New York (SDNY) when he leaves the White House.

During a segment on AM Joy, Mystal explained to host Joy Reid that the SDNY investigation has elevated the stakes for the president when it comes to winning the 2020 presidential election.

“The irony here, that I hope it is not lost on people, is that the Trump Organization, which appears to be a massive criminal front, is so small potatoes that if Trump hadn’t run for president, SDNY wouldn’t care,” he said. “SDNY cares about stopping terrorists.

“Putting SDNY on the Trump investigation is a little bit like bringing in Sherlock Holmes to figure out who framed Roger Rabbit,” Mystal continued. “These people are such cartoonish criminals that now that SDNY is on it, they’re all going down.”

Or this piece at NBC.

Cohen’s cooperation “would send a chill up my spine” if he worked at the White House, former New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie, who also was a federal prosecutor, told ABC News during the hearing, referring to the ex-Trump fixer’s statement to lawmakers that he was helping prosecutors in their Trump-related investigations.

Or this one from Bloomberg.

In the span of one week, we learned that the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York had both secured a guilty plea from Trump Organization lawyer Michael Cohen and offered an immunity deal to the company’s chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg. President Donald Trump should be worried. Once the Southern District gets its jaws onto a string of crimes, it doesn’t let go.

Weisselberg, as part of his deal, will likely be required to provide information on all criminal activity he knows about. That spells potential disaster for Trump personally, and major problems for his presidency. That’s apart from any potential state-level criminal investigation by the New York district attorney’s office.

You see, according to the media, the SDNY were pit-bulls. They were the career prosecutors free of scope limits and restraint. That was going to make all the difference. In fact, the real danger for Trump was never Robert Mueller’s investigation, no it’s always been the SDNY and they aren’t going to let this go. There were even #SDNY hashtags and T-shirts.

Well, so much for that. It was just announced yesterday that the SDNY’s investigation into the Trump organization and the Michael Cohen related “hush money” payments is over.

Judge William H. Pauley III announced that prosecutors in the Southern District of New York revealed this development to the court in a status report, as media companies including The New York Times, Associated Press, CNN, and Dow Jones & Co. have pushed to unseal the search warrant materials related to the case. The end of the investigation likely means no additional charges will be filed against anyone, including the president.

“We are pleased that the investigation surrounding these ridiculous campaign finance allegations is now closed,” Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow said in a statement. “We have maintained from the outset that the President never engaged in any campaign finance violation.”

And with that, the last great hope for the left to nail Trump on something criminal has breathed its last breath. There will be no Trump in handcuffs. The SDNY isn’t going to expose mountains of fraud within the Trump organization and Cohen will not be bringing anyone along with him to prison.

As an aside, I could write another entire piece about how this shows just how clueless our chattering class in the media actually are. The grand pronouncements on the cable networks, the scathing, faux intellectual editorials, and the confident claims on Twitter, all completely wrong. Again.

But I’m sure there’s some state investigation they’ll latch onto now as the “real” threat to Trump. It never stops and they never actually learn anything from their past failures.

Armed Man Hurls Molotov Cocktails at ICE Facility, Draws Expected Response

An man armed with a rifle and incendiary devices most would describe as molotov cocktails attacked an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington yesterday.

The report is from the Seattle Times.

Police said Van Spronsen tossed lit objects at vehicles and buildings, causing one car fire, and unsuccessfully tried to ignite a propane tank.

Officers were called by an ICE employee who saw the rifle. Soon after they arrived, officers reported “shots fired,” said Tacoma police spokeswoman Loretta Cool, although it is unclear who fired first or if Van Spronsen fired at all. The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office classified his death as a homicide.

Willem Van Spronsen has been part of the protest scene at the facility for a while. Just last year he was criminally charged after attempting to choke a police officer while also carrying a knife.

Back on the street, his rage apparently hadn’t quelled and he went too far this time. Police saw the rifle as well as the fact that he was throwing improvised explosives and ended the confrontation with deadly force.

I noticed above that the medical examiner classified Van Spronsen’s death as a homocide. I’ll assume that’s normal, but it’s still jarring considering the officers were obviously acting in self defense here.

This kind of thing is not going to stop as long as the media and Democrat party are stoking the flames every single day. When you call ICE Nazis and claim they are torturing children, what kind of response should we expect? If someone really believes those things, why wouldn’t they take action? That’s the danger of all the misinformation that’s been spread around.

It’s ironic given that Republicans were accused of incitement simply for accurately quoting Ilhan Omar a few months back, something that clearly wasn’t in fact incitement, but the left and their media allies are completely mum about possible incitement in this case. Would they stay quiet if this were an abortion mill being attacked? Or would they try to tie it to the pro-life movement? We all know the answer to that and it’s a testament to their incredible hypocrisy.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her allies in Congress that are making up things and lying about the situation at these facilities, all while holding funding hostage, need to be called to account here. They are whipping up resentment and violence that’s going to lead to more people getting killed.
