Anti-Trumper Chris Wallace Tells Mick Mulvaney a “Well-Connected Source” Says 20% Chance Senate Will Remove Trump

Fox News‘ Chris Wallace no longer bothers to pretend he hates President Trump. During a contentious interview on Sunday with acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, he brought up the number of Republicans that are breaking with or at least distancing themselves from Trump after his decision to pull troops out of Northern Syria. He pointed out Mitch McConnell’s scathing op-ed last week in addition to House Republicans voting 129 to 60 to rebuke the decision.

Then, Wallace informed Mulvaney that a source, a well-connected Republican D.C. insider, “it’s a name you would know well,” had told him that if Trump is impeached by the House and a trial in the Senate follows, there is a 20% chance he would be voted out of office. The question comes at 11:40 in the video below.

Mulvaney sees the comment for what it is and instantly dismisses it. “That’s just absurd. But let’s deal with the issue of Syria.”

Wallace immediately cuts him off, and says forcefully, “No, let’s deal with the issue of Republicans – you’re losing your support.”

Mulvaney responds, “The 20%. That person clearly doesn’t know what they’re talking about…No, the president is extraordinarily popular back home, more popular in the swing districts now that impeachment has started.”

A supermajority, or 67 Senators, would be required to remove the President from office. Currently, there are 53 Republicans, 45 Democrats and 2 Independents serving in the Senate. Both Independents caucus with the Democrats.  They would still need 20 Republicans to vote against Trump.

Mitt “Pierre Delecto” Romney is one and there would be a handful of others. Lisa Murkowski (R-AL) and possibly Susan Collins (R-ME) come to mind. The reality is that chances of a Trump conviction in a Senate trial are closer to nil.

Wallace’s remark filled Democrats’ with glee. The Washington Post immediately published an article entitled “A few Republican cracks on impeachment are showing” which can be viewed here.

The article cites Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) who, ahead of the Syria decision, had been one of the President most loyal supporters. Graham is vehemently opposed to pulling U.S. troops out of Northern Syria and has been fiercely critical of Trump.

They point to Graham’s comments during an interview with Axios last Tuesday. When asked if he supported impeachment, he said, “Sure. I mean … show me something that … is a crime. If you could show me that, you know, Trump actually was engaging in a quid pro quo, outside the phone call, that would be very disturbing.”

On Saturday night, Graham appeared on Fox News’ “Justice with Jeanine Pirro” and was still quite worked up.

Following the show, he spoke on the phone with President Trump and by the time he appeared on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” his tone had changed significantly.

If the Washington Post is looking for a serious and permanent break between the two, it might be premature.

A discussion of whether or not Trump made the right call on Syria is beyond the scope of this post. But there is a huge difference between disagreeing with the President on a policy decision and removing him from office.

And it may be time for Chris Wallace to follow Shepard Smith out the door.

Beto O’Rourke Told a Room Full of Democrats That You – Yes You – Are a Racist

Beto O’Rourke by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

Democratic 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke is so woke that he’s officially become the wokest candidate among the pack. What’s more, he can’t wait to show you how woke he is.

While addressing the Alabama Democratic Conference’s semi-annual convention in Birmingham, Alabama, O’Rourke showed you just how racist he’s not by pointing out that everyone in America is a racist country because it’s racist at its foundations.

Bold strategy, Cotton.

“Despite my obvious pride in the role my community played in the civil rights history of America, despite what I think we represent to this country and the rest of the world — about the genius of America being able to integrate people who come from everywhere and call this country home…this country, though we may not be in El Paso, Texas, is still racist at its foundation, at its core, and throughout history,” said O’Rourke.

His calling this country “racist” naturally received applause from the Democrat attendees.

It’s odd to me that we still hear this kind of rhetoric from Democrats who currently govern a country where they elect minorities on both sides of the aisle. Democrats who live in a country where we just recently had a black president. Where we have celebrities, athletes, and business owners of every shade of skin color and ethnic background.

The institutional racism O’Rourke is mentioning here is nonexistent. A country that is racist at its core wouldn’t allow for any of the above. While it’s clear that many minority communities have their struggles, blaming it on some nebulous spirit of racism is like saying it rains because it does. The social justice left that O’Rourke belongs to would rather commit to the narrative that bad things happen to minorities because of racism, and not really look at the underlying causes as to why.

But the most insulting part is that in order for a country to be racist, there have to be practicers of racism. According to O’Rourke, that’s you. You’re racist. Maybe you don’t think you are, or maybe you don’t mean to be, but O’Rourke and woke Democrats like him are here to tell you that you’re just the worst.

In short, he thinks you’re horrible and that the only way to fix you is to give him power over you.

Flop Sweat Builds As It Sure Looks Like the Barr-Durham Probe Is Now a Criminal Investigation

Westlake Legal Group ap-john-brennan-620x409 Flop Sweat Builds As It Sure Looks Like the Barr-Durham Probe Is Now a Criminal Investigation Russia Politics Lawyer Up john durham John Brennan Joe Scarborough james comey James Clapper Front Page Stories Front Page FISA Featured Story FBI donald trump doj democrats corruption bill barr Allow Media Exception 2016 Election

CIA Director John Brennan testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, June 16, 2016, before the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on the Islamic State. Brennan said that the Islamic State remains “formidable” and “resilient,” is training and attempting to deploy operatives for further attacks on the West and will rely more on guerrilla-style tactics to compensate for its territorial losses in the Middle East. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Yesterday, RedState via Elizabeth Vaughn shared the news that Durham had further expanded his investigation to include James Clapper and John Brennan. This of course left Brennan flailing about wildly, wondering why the DOJ would even be interested in him.

John Brennan told NBC that Durham’s investigation is “bizarre” and said, “I don’t know what the legal basis for this is.” He doesn’t? Let me refresh his memory.

Brennan’s obsessive fear that Donald Trump might win the presidency may have instigated the whole collusion narrative. He didn’t have to twist many arms to bring others on board, but his exhaustive search for “dirt” on Trump and his insistence that the FBI open a counterintelligence investigation was key.

That news came on the heels of another report I wrote on a week earlier in which it was confirmed that Barr had expanded his reach past just FISA abuse.

However, based on what he has been finding, Durham has expanded his investigation adding agents and resources, the senior administration officials said. The timeline has grown from the beginning of the probe through the election and now has included a post-election timeline through the spring of 2017, up to when Robert Mueller was named special counsel.

With the latest report, there are a few things happening that make me think this isn’t just window dressing. In fact, I think it has morphed into a full blown criminal investigation.

Note that they’ve moved past looking at process arguments involving FISA and are now targeting specific people. Brennan and Clapper are both going to be interviewed, along with the other analysts involved in Brennan’s much ballyhooed report on Russian interference. It always appeared that the Obama administration threw that report together, lacking much of any evidence, to throw Trump’s presidency into chaos.

Further, officials within these agencies are now scrambling to lawyer up and that’s never a sign things are going well for those involved.

Durham has also requested to talk to CIA analysts involved in the intelligence assessment of Russia’s activities, prompting some of them to hire lawyers, according to three former CIA officials familiar with the matter. And there is tension between the CIA and the Justice Department over what classified documents Durham can examine, two people familiar with the matter said.

It certainly appears that Barr has progressed this into a full blown criminal investigation and that has the media scrambling.

Oh, now they are concerned with whether there’s a factual basis for an investigation? I’m sure Donald Trump would be interested in the genesis of this new rule. It’s amazing to behold the lack of self-awareness some of these outlets lack. They spent over two years rattling about Russian collusion, something we found out held no basis in fact, but now they question with a straight face whether an investigation of that process is legitimate?

And here’s Brennan’s MSNBC buddy (Brennan is a paid contributor at the network) feeling a sudden tightening on his backside.

That’s called projection boys and girls.

The idea that Bill Barr, who has shown himself to be an incredibly smart and tough figure while Attorney General, is going to be be thrown in jail once he leaves office is laughable. You can bet he’s not letting one single detail slip here and the DOJ has an absolute right to investigate corruption within their ranks. It’s not Barr who needs to lawyer up and that’s shown by the fact that it’s those he’s investigating that are running to K Street right now.

Ed Morrisey notes this over at HotAir.

The point about hiring lawyers is especially interesting. The DoJ made sure to note at the beginning that Durham was conducting an internal review, not a criminal investigation, although there was nothing to prevent it from developing into one. The DoJ does not comment on the existence of criminal investigations until they either close one or get an indictment — with a couple of notable James Comey-related exceptions — and they’re not talking now, either. These developments, however, make it look like Durham has turned the corner from review to full-blown criminal investigation.

We’ve always know the IG report from Horowitz was going to be toothless. He can’t even interview people who’ve already left government, so how exactly was he going to get to the bottom of what Brennan, Clapper, Comey, etc. did? But Barr has the power of the judicial system behind him. He can force these people to all sit for interviews, and while Comey may be sly enough to avoid trouble, Brennan is basically a stump with legs.

We’ll see where all this goes. The fact that Barr and Durham are not wrapping this up but are continuing to expand and target specific people is a bad sign for those who helped perpetrate the Russian collusion hoax.

Joaquin Castro Slams Trump Administration’s Human Rights Violation; Except that it Happened under Obama

Westlake Legal Group JoaquinCastroAPimage-620x317 Joaquin Castro Slams Trump Administration’s Human Rights Violation; Except that it Happened under Obama Trump administration Obama Administration Joaquin Castro Impeachment of President Trump Human Rights Violations Human Rights Front Page Stories Featured Story Dreamers donald trump democrats corruption Campaigns Barack Obama Allow Media Exception 2020

Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, speaks about a resolution to block President Donald Trump’s emergency border security declaration on Capitol Hill, Monday, Feb. 25, 2019 in Washington. House Democrats have introduced a resolution to block the national emergency declaration that President Donald Trump issued last week to fund his long-sought wall along the U.S-Mexico border, setting up a fight that could result in Trump’s first-ever veto.

The Hill just republished a story about migrant children quietly being adopted by U.S. citizens after their biological parents are deported. The article features a young El Salvadoran woman named Araceli Ramos. She ran away from her abusive husband, taking their daughter Alexa with her, to seek asylum in the U.S. Usually, a woman fleeing from abuse would be granted asylum, however, due to outstanding criminal charges against her, she was refused. The story can be viewed here.

Araceli was sent to a detention facility and her daughter was placed in foster care with a U.S. couple in Michigan. After several months in detention, Araceli, unable to find an attorney, was deported. She claims that an immigration agent forced her to sign a waiver to leave her daughter behind.

Araceli tried to get her daughter back, but the foster family had grown fond of her and allegedly ignored repeated requests from DHS to return her. According to The Hill:

When officially ordered to return Alexa to her mother in December of 2016, the foster parents, Sherri and Kory Barr, sued claiming that she would be abused if returned home. A Michigan judge granted them guardianship.

After pressure from social media and the Salvadoran government for the family to be reunited mounted, the Department of Justice (DOJ) weighed in, saying that “the Barrs obtained their temporary guardianship order in violation of federal law.”

The Barrs’ attorney and the Michigan judge were also found to have violated federal law by not notifying Alexa or her mother about the guardianship proceedings.

Alexa was finally returned to her mother in February 2017. Once returned home, Alexa took time to adjust to living in El Salvador, initially pining to return to Michigan and refusing to eat or play.

In a statement to The Hill, a DHS spokeswoman said that all of the cases the AP reviewed came under the Obama administration, emphasizing that all of the adoptions were done legally.

It looks like human rights warrior and 2020 presidential candidate Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) missed that line in the story. He’s been very busy these days campaigning to be Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) running mate and immediately took to twitter to blame Trump.

The Trump Administration intentionally separated kids from their parents and then put the kids up for adoption — permanently separating them. This is a human rights violation committed by the United States government.

And it looks like journalist failed to read carefully as well. She went so far as to say that “forcibly transferring children of the group to another group” is among the acts the United Nations considers to be genocide.”

Yikes!

One of her followers responded: “TRUMP/GOP guilty of GENOCIDE”

After several responses, one of her followers actually read the story and pointed out the line they’d all missed:

In a statement to The Hill, a DHS spokeswoman said that all of the cases the AP reviewed came under the Obama administration, emphasizing that all of the adoptions were done legally.

Will Joaquin apologize? Probably not. He’ll just let people go right on thinking that Trump is a violator of human rights because it serves his agenda. Remember when he posted a list of the largest GOP donors in Texas a while back. Rather than apologize, he doubled down. That’s just how he rolls.

Police Continue to Bash Beto Over His Promise to Send Authorities to the Homes of Gun Owners

Failed Democratic Texas Senate candidate and failing Democratic 2020 candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke made some promises on behalf of America’s law enforcement that America’s law enforcement isn’t happy about, and they’re speaking out about it.

Recently, O’Rourke went on MSNBC and told Joe Scarborough of “Morning Joe” that if he became president and by some dark miracle managed to make AR-15s illegal, he would institute a mandatory buyback. Should you as a gun owner not participate in that buyback, then O’Rourke said he would send law enforcement to pay you a visit.

As I reported, Sheriff’s departments from across the nation began speaking up and letting O’Rourke know that his threat wasn’t only not going to happen due to its unconstitutionality, it’s absolutely foolish in that it could result in the deaths of both civilians and officers. They lambasted O’Rourke for being so flippant about putting lives at risk.

(READ: Sheriffs Send Beto To The Burn Ward Over His Threat To Send Law Enforcement To Gun Owner’s Homes)

Apparently, the bashing from law enforcement is continuing, but now it involves the largest police union in the nation.

According to the Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski, the National Fraternal Order of Police not only stated that his threat was unconstitutional but rubbed salt in the wound by stating that O’Rourke is likely to never be elected:

“Mr. O’Rourke may not be aware that state and local police officers (who comprise more than 90% of all police in the U.S.) receive their orders from their local jurisdictions – not from the Federal government,” Jim Pasco, executive director of the FOP, wrote in an email to the Free Beacon. “Further, any such legislation, if it passed, would no doubt be vigorously litigated with a view to its apparent inconsistency with the Second Amendment.”

“In view of the foregoing, and in view of Mr. O’Rourke’s current standing in the polls, we do not view this as an issue we will have to grapple within the foreseeable future,” he added.

It doesn’t stop there. Gutowski also reported that Sheriff AJ Louderback of Jackson County, Texas, warned that officers would mutiny en masse should a politician try to implement a threat like that into action, and flat out stated his refusal to participate in such an action should he be ordered to:

“I think he’s seriously misjudging the law enforcement response to what he wants to do,” Louderback told the Free Beacon. “Many sheriffs would not comply with his plan.”

Louderback sits on the immigration and government affairs committees of the National Sheriffs’ Association, which represents over 3,000 sheriffs across the country. He described O’Rourke’s plan as unworkable and counterproductive.

“This guy’s plan is ridiculous,” he said. “Everyone is looking for solutions to violent crime but this isn’t one of them. I’m not going to harass my citizens for owning guns.”

The National Association of Police Organizations, which represents a massive number of officers, also verbally slapped O’Rourke for his threat:

“It’s ironic that Beto O’Rourke, who was slamming police as ‘the new Jim Crow’ just a year ago, now finds a need for police when he wants to disarm individuals,” Bill Johnson, executive director of the group, told the Free Beacon. “Maybe poor Beto should spend less time live-streaming his visits to the dentist and attend a basics civics class instead. He’d be reminded that the very first law every police officer swears to uphold is the Constitution.”

The number of officers refusing to do comply with Democrat’s “door to door” promise of gun confiscation should tip off the left to what kind of country they’re trying to disarm. When even law enforcement officials at the very top of offices and unions are openly revolting against you before you’re in a position to be revolted against, you’re not going to have a good time getting your authoritarianism into action.

Video: Compare and Contrast the Media’s Treatment of Jan Brewer and Obama vs Treatment of Nancy Pelosi and Trump

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer announces that she will not seek a third term and will retire at the end of her current term, Wednesday, March 12, 2014, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Matt York)

Last week, I wrote about how former Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ) complained on social media about the rough treatment the mainstream media gave her after her famous “pointing at Obama” incident in 2012 in contrast to their fangirling over a similar image of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Trump, which was shared on Twitter by Trump on Wednesday.

To recap, after the President posted the picture and captioned it “Nervous Nancy’s unhinged meltdown!”, Pelosi’s staff countered by making the picture he tweeted the header image on her Twitter page:

The media swooned over the photo. As Newsbusters’ Nicholas Fondacaro noted at the time, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell and Lester Holt were among the many who were in awe of the supposed symbolism of the image.

CNN’s Dana Bash was another who couldn’t help but gush over the photo, and how Pelosi and her staff “owned” the moment where she “[stood up] … at a table of all men” against Trump.

Brewer weighed in on Twitter on Thursday, noting the backlash she received when she stood up to Obama versus how Pelosi was treated like a queen over her finger-pointing at Trump:

I included examples in my post which showed that Brewer was spot-on in her characterization of the media’s hypocrisy.

But seeing their duplicity in living color shines an even brighter, starker light on the two faced nature of the mainstream media when it comes to women in politics confronting men who are more powerful than them.

The Free Beacon did a must-watch video mashup last Friday that included numerous examples of how the MSM breathlessly reported on Pelosi “standing up to Trump” versus what they said about Brewer’s 2012 confrontation with President Obama.

There’s no question that liberal media bias exists. I’ve written about it for over 16 years, but even I was taken aback at just how blatant the double standards were in this case after I watched the video:

Wow. And the MSM still wonders why we don’t trust them to cover the issues fairly?

Must-See Tweets Displaying Chile’s Violent Response to Protesters Shows Us Why Gun Control Is a Bad Idea

Westlake Legal Group ff260d6b-4131-4295-9611-d5489b7c6ddd@news.ap_.org_ Must-See Tweets Displaying Chile’s Violent Response to Protesters Shows Us Why Gun Control Is a Bad Idea second amendment police brutality Guns gun rights gun control Front Page Stories firearms democrats Chile America 2A

Gun control advocates often laugh at people who like to say they keep their guns around because it prevents authoritarians in the government from getting out of control.

As they laugh, we see how the police dominate their unarmed citizenry with brutal force and cruel tactics. We’ve watched as it happened in China, Venezuela, North Korea, and now Hong Kong and Chile.

In Chile, what started as a protest about rising metro faires has blossomed into a full-on riot thanks to rising costs of living, with police reacting with overt violence. One Twitter user from Chile going by “pinkitsvne,” has tweeted out images and videos showing just how bad it has gotten.

One thing she noted, in particular, was how the government was manhandling protesters and rioters thanks to Chile being a “disarmed country.”

“THIS IS CHILE RIGHT NOW,” she tweeted. “The government set the military on the streets just because people were demanding rights. Salaries aren’t enough. WE ARE A DISARMED COUNTRY. They fight us with guns and we have bare hands.
Media is censoring this, please RT. MAKE THE WORLD SEE.”

The Twitter user posted other images and videos, including a GIF of police destroying public property and blaming protesters for the act.

One image, in particular, stands out, however. An unarmed older man can be seen holding his hand up to a Chilean officer who is pointing a gun directly at him. Included is a video of police firing guns at unseen protesters.

“This image makes me so so sad honestly. It’s literally representing what’s happening, a gun pointed at us when we just want to be heard,” tweeted pinkitsvne.

It’s possible that these shotguns contain beanbag rounds; they have has not been confirmed as having been shells that are deadly. Regardless, you can see how the police abuse their authority by shooting teargas into the property of protesters and even using batons to beat a child.

Those laughing at American people who want to keep their Second Amendment rights alive and well are the laughable ones. We see a constant stream of examples of what happens when a government doesn’t have the threat of violence looming against them, with Chile just being the latest.

Gun rights advocates are watching and learning. They’re paying attention to historical patterns that show that an unarmed populace is a conquered one. It’s only a matter of time before it overtly shows.

When Democrats tell us we need to give up our guns and America refuses, what we see in Chile is what it’s refusing.

Why Is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Picking On Pete Buttigieg?

STOP PICKING ON ME A.O.C.

(AP Photo/John Minchillo)

Let’s just get something straight here right off the bat.

This article about a spat between two progressives is not going to SINK to the level of how progressive democrats act in regards to how they treat conservatives. We are not going to assume here for ONE MOMENT that just because of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez picking on Pete Buttigieg with tweets, that she hates white men, white men who are straight or gay. Even white men who put ketchup on their hot dogs or don’t like 250 dollar haircuts.

We are not going there.

Pete Buttigieg on Fox News Sunday responded to criticism from A.O.C. about fundraising and what would be needed to be done for the Democratic nominee to take on and win against Donald Trump.

He actually sounds like he is taking this really seriously here.

From Fox News

The far-left congresswoman accused Buttigieg of protecting a system of “big money politics” instead of trying to make it a thing of the past, touting the merits of “small-dollar grassroots campaigns,” which she said were more successful than his. Buttigieg said he’s quite familiar with grassroots campaigning, but said it will take more than that for Democrats to succeed in 2020.

“Well, first of all, you don’t go from mayor of South Bend to a competitive presidential candidate without knowing a thing or two about grassroots campaigning,” Buttigieg told “Fox News Sunday” in response to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet, posted last week. “My campaign is fueled by the contributions of almost 600,000 individual donors and most of those are small contributions.”

Ocasio-Cortez posted her remark while retweeting a quote from Buttigieg that criticized Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s plan to stay away from large donations. Buttigieg had said, “We’re not going to beat Trump with pocket change.” Ocasio-Cortez described that comment as insulting to small donors, but Buttigieg explained his stance on Sunday.

He is taking this seriously!!!!

A.O.C. at the end of the day is a political cheap shot artist with feelings. That works great for twitter and her lil district in New York and of course the Instagram people eat that up but Pete has it nailed down here.

The way the system is set up now you need to bring in corporate cash by the bundles. This silly notion that Warren and Bernie are running on is great for small rallies and a fabulous talking point but not for a serious run for the Presidency.

That A.O.C. even took issue with the “pocket change” comment shows that she is way in overhead here. This is another reason why Nancy Pelosi will probably soon send her to the gulag while the adults in the Democratic caucus try to figure out the impeachment mess they have gotten themselves into.

The radical feelings over facts crowd of the Democratic party’s base right now are much more aligned with the Bernie factions than the more moderate faction like the Mayor. Buttigieg, it sounds like is much more in tune with how to win an election nationally with his statements here which is A.O.C. and the other kids lashed out.

Not because he is gay or white but because he is right.

At least on this issue.

Someone give Alexandria a gift certificate for another 250 dollar hair cut. Hopefully, that will keep her from taking shots for a while at Mayor Pete.

In a political era that is becoming more and more like a “hold my beer” joke in regards to outrageous statements, the bar was set high by Hillary Clinton last week when she accused failed 2016 Green Party candidate Jill Stein of being a Russian asset, and for good measure she tossed in Tulsi Gabbard:

They’re also going to do third party again. And I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary. And they’re grooming her to be the third party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians, they have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far, and – that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not, because she is also a Russian asset — yeah, she’s a Russian asset! I mean totally

I think it is safe to say that were this anything more than Hillary Clinton blaming other people for her own epic incompetence in 2016, that the Mueller investigation, which was empowered to investigate Russian campaign meddling, would have uncovered tracks of the support for the Stein campaign–unless, of course, President Trump has been right all along and it was simply part of a scheme to remove him from office without any basis is truth. But Clinton’s fluffers dutifully jumped on the bandwagon:

What is interesting is that, as far as I can tell, exactly two Democrat candidates have come to Gabbard’s defense and both of those have done so rather tepidly.

What should have been said was that either Clinton was mentally debilitated, batsh** crazy, or day drinking yet again. But the fear of the Clinton machine is too much for Democrats to stand up to even when confronted point-blank with this outrageous allegation. Such was the case when Chuck Todd confronted “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg on Meet the Press (h/t to Byron York for the transcript):

Buttigieg’s supporters are claiming that his last sentence, that he wasn’t “comfortable” with the accusation is about as weak as one can get. In fact, reading his whole response, he could just as easily have meant that he wasn’t comfortable with a situation in which Russia was “grooming” a Democrat candidate.

This is not one of those occasions when an opponent is in trouble and you just punt on your opinion on the issue. This is a case where a major (shame on us) US political figure has accused a Democrat candidate, who just happens to be both an officer in the Army National Guard and a congresswoman, of being a agent of Russia. Mere decency requires that the allegation against both Gabbard and Stein, but in particular against Gabbard,  to be denounced as utterly whacko. And yet, he couldn’t bring himself to break with the Clinton machine even on an issue with a moral bright line such as this.

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

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.
