Greg Gutfeld and Tom Shillue Do a Masterful Roast of Adam Schiff

Saturday Night Live used to be funny. But it’s been hit or miss for a long time, with more miss than hit.

They could take a lesson from Greg Gutfeld and Tom Shillue.

It’s too common to parody President Donald Trump.

What you really need is a parody of the man who thinks he can conduct an impeachment without a vote on an inquiry, who thinks he can hold hearings in secret and the American people wouldn’t question it.

You need a parody of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).

Now some might say that Schiff himself is a parody of a congress person. And while there is something to be said for that, certainly, perhaps it’s good to have one that amuses us rather than one which infuriates us.

Shillue delivered a masterful impersonation of Schiff, right down to the eyes.

If you need a laugh, here you go.

Yikes, that’s pretty much straight on. Hilariously funny and downright creepy at the same time.

Although next time, Shillue should practice how to parody leaking out of committee meetings to media.

Gutfeld is right amidst the humor.

If Schiff really thinks he can take down a president and change election results because they lost, he’s going to find some very unhappy Americans giving him a very different message come November 2020.

And that’s no joke.

Hilarious: Here’s How the Climate Change Gang Is Saving the Planet, Part II

We brought you some hilarious vignettes of the climate change activists’ efforts to save the planet earlier in the week and now we have some more memorable moments for you.

While we covered the climate strike in London the first time, we’re bringing you some other places as well this time around.

Here’s folks in Sydney, Australia actually burying their heads in the sand:

Really not sure what’s going on here, but it surely looks like it will transform the climate:

This looks like an intelligent thing to do. Not. Prize for the person who can explain this one:

Oct-upying police time:

Let’s get our dance on and spew more CO2!

Guest celebrity Jane Fonda. She’s been a “climate scientist” for decades, don’t you know?

She’ll be appearing in this show for four months. Then what? What happens at the end of the four months when the world is still here? Jane is out of D.C. in a flash.

Never block a guy trying to get to his burger:

So what did they achieve, after all that? That’s the part that’s not so hilarious. Hundreds of thousands of dollars expended by the various governments to deal with the protests, money that now can’t go to improving the environment or anything else, example, Australia:

More CO2 footprint as a result.

These two crazy guys even held up planes, and had to get taken off. Not a cult, not a cult…

Police and emergency services deployed to deal with protests can’t take care of other things, as these folks observe in their critiques against London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

But hey, just remember, it’s an emergency and they’re saving the planet.

Say What? Bernie Sanders Says Elizabeth Warren Is a Capitalist As a Diss

Bernis is back.

Kinda.

He is READY TO RUMBLE.

Maybe.

Sanders in a new interview with ABC’s Jon Karl says that the big difference between him and his female counterpart who is also white, rich and boring is that she is…..GASP…A CAPITALIST.

From The Hill

In an interview airing Sunday with ABC’s Jon Karl, Sanders struck a stronger tone in distancing himself from Warren’s views on economic policy than he has in previous months, and again asserted that he was the strongest candidate to take on entrenched, powerful corporations and special interest groups in Washington.

“There are differences between Elizabeth and myself,” Sanders said, referring to Warren. “Elizabeth, I think, as you know, has said that she is a capitalist through her bones. I’m not.”

Ohhhhh can you feel the BERRRRRNNNNNNNNNNNN?

How pathetic.

In case you had forgotten Bernie while you have been taking it easy since the ticker attack, you have a net worth of around 2.5 to 3 million dollars according to Business Insider and Warren is worth around 10 million. So she is a better capitalist than you. et you still made money selling books from a company that makes big profits selling books.

Color thy hypocrisy green. As in money.

This is obviously an attempt to stem the inevitable bleed off of his support after his recent health episode. When a 78-year-old guy has any sort of heart event they shut them down for months. Running for President is not the shutdown type of activity that most doctors would recommend.

So he goes after Liz, the New York Times goes after Biden and hopefully by the time Iowa and New Hampshire come around he is strong enough to mimic Biden’s campaign schedule which is one or two appearances a week. Maybe.

This will not work and the time is ticking before he will have to drop out. I do appreciate the effort though.

One last thing.

Capitalism is the most perfect of all the imperfect systems of economics. That the democratic party has a candidate that says this as a diss and he is not roundly booed shows that the fringe left in this country is becoming more delusional by the day. I know that might infuriate at some of you while you are reading this in a Starbucks on your i phone 11 but I promise you that you will survive.

Unlike Bernie’s campaign.

Viva la CAPITALISM!!!

‘Journalist’ Soledad O’Brien Leads Discussion of Why Trump Supporters Are ‘Trash’

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-13-at-11.40.25-AM ‘Journalist’ Soledad O’Brien Leads Discussion of Why Trump Supporters Are ‘Trash’ media bias Media Liberal Elitism liberal elites Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

We’ve always known that there are some Democrats and some in the liberal media who regard those on the right, those that make up a lot of Middle America, with something of a quiet disdain, that they are not as enlightened as the coastal elite, their betters, are.

Democrats like Hillary Clinton demonstrated this with her description of a good portion of Americans as “deplorables.”

Soledad O’Brien, who used to work for CNN, Al Jazeera and who has a show for Hearst Television, has now picked up on that theme, encouraging a discussion of how not just that President Donald Trump is a “racist” but his supporters are also “trash.”

David Gailen, whose bio describes him as co-creator, host, and executive producer of “The Jet Set”, a weekly, nationally syndicated travel lifestyle television show, then picked up the theme, mocking the looks of a Trump supporter at a Trump rally. “Total Trash! We shouldn’t ever be shy about calling them what they are. I liked this shot of the troll that we’ve all heard from.” Apparently, Trump supporters aren’t “jet set” enough for him.

He continued, responding to @rbduval77 who said “They all look the same like some other category of primate” but then later deleted his tweet.

Here’s a writer and editor, formerly with the Sac Bee and the Dallas Morning News. Obviously very objective.

What was ironic while these tolerant folks on the left were mocking a woman for her looks, which they would decry if anyone else did it, and claiming the Trump supporters were KKK or intolerant, outside the rally, the left was surrounding and attacking Trump supporters, knocking their hats off, chasing them down and spitting at them. The leftist “protesters” was harassing the police and calling them “pigs” and threatening them. Talk about acting like fascists and being all about hate.

And they wonder why people don’t trust media.

How did that work out when Hillary Clinton called Americans deplorables? They seem to forget why they lost.

CLIMATE FLASHBACK: In 1978 Mr. Spock Told Us Another Ice Age Would Be Here By Now.

LIVE LONG AND FREEZE

I love Star Trek. The whole notion that we survive the mess we see the world in now and actually get to go for drinks on the moon and take a quick spin around Jupiter for fun is just a warm and fuzzy concept.

The show became part of our cultural DNA and the stars of the show went out to successful careers in other areas. Leonard Nimoy A.K.A. Mr. Spock was one of these Trek stars that found other things to do while not on the bridge of the Enterprise.

Nimoy hosted a fantastic show called “In Search Of…from 1978 until 1982 and it covered a wide range of topics that were explored. Material such as, is there a bigfoot, UFO’s and the lost city of Atlantis were some of its episodes.

They also in May of 1978 covered something according to their IMDb page called “In Search Of… The Coming Ice Age”. Of course, with all the interest of climate change and the 1.5-degree shift of getting warmer and all of us dying in less than 12 years ( Not my words ask A.O.C.  Ocasio-Cortez says the world will end in 12 years. She is absolutely right.) I was absolutely intrigued.

Below is a video clip from that show.

Below I have taken some short clips that Nimoy says here to add my stellar commentary.

The data shows that the average temperatures in the Arctic have fallen dramatically over the last 30 years. In most locations, the drop has been 2 degrees centigrade.

According to NOAA we are up almost 1.42 F since 2000. I’m gonna call this a draw.

The whole Northern hemisphere has grown steadily cooler.

Check the NOAA link above. I guess we are getting warmer. Which is really nice for Michigan in Feb.

If we are unprepared for the next advance ( Ice Age) the result could be hunger and death on a scale unprecedented in all of history.

Whether it is massive ice sheets rolling our way or Florida flooding out, it’s always doom and gloom with these people. How about the world comes together like in the movie Independence Day and either does a huge BBQ or use the ice for drinks. CMON PEOPLE.

What scientists are telling us now is the threat of an ice age is not as remote as they once thought.

Well, scientists are telling us something different now. Now I’m not gonna blame them here. They get stuff wrong like this all the time.

During the lifetime of our grandchildren, arctic cold and perpetual snow could turn most of the inhabitable portions of our planet into a polar desert.

Nimoy has 5 grandchildren and from what the scientists are telling us is that we will be all fried before frozen. I’m not sure which one is worse actually.

What does this all mean?

That 41 years ago a show on network television with a beloved actor who played a character that relied on “logic,” scared the crap out of a 9-year-old Duke, making me think the ice was going to kill my family and I.

They were not just wrong but fabulously wrong.

Now those that believe the current dire warnings will say the technology is better, the computer models are more accurate and we have learned so much since 1978.

Well, how about if we do this as a test. Get the current weather reports you do EXACTLY RIGHT for 30 days, then we can chat about making predictions 40 years or 12 years maybe even just 30 months into the future.

Back in 1978, the climate alarmists used an actor who played a Vulcan ( who is not supposed to lie) as a messenger to get people ginned up about impending doom. In 2019 they used a 16-year Lil kid to do the same thing. They were wrong in 1978 and I’m willing to bet Al Gores billions that he made on this fantasy that they are wrong now also.

Predicting the weather, stocks or what women are thinking when they are really mad is a dangerous proposition. Doing any one of these things is just…

Illogical.

P.S. Kirk is the best Captain E-V-E-R.

AOC On Verge of Tears: ‘Dream of Motherhood is Bittersweet’ Because We Are On Brink of ‘Extinction’

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-13-at-9.34.24-AM AOC On Verge of Tears: ‘Dream of Motherhood is Bittersweet’ Because We Are On Brink of ‘Extinction’ socialism Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Congress Climate Change Climate AOC Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took her climate show on the road on Friday, when she was in Copenhagen where she spoke at the C40 World Mayors Summit.

In her speech, she was near tears and railed against climate change, saying that our world was at the crossroads of “extinction” and that there could be no “middle road” in response.

From Daily Wire:

“The climate crisis is already here,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “On this note I speak to you not as an elected official or public figure, but I speak to you as a human being – a woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about our children’s future, and that our actions are responsible for bringing their most dire possibilities into focus. I speak to you as a daughter and descendant of colonized peoples who have already begun to suffer.”

She blamed Hurricane Maria’s destruction in Puerto Rico in 2017 on climate change saying her own grandfather died “in the aftermath.”

Ocasio-Cortez claimed that the disaster was “all because they were living under colonial rule, which contributed to the dire conditions.” She claimed that this was happening to people who had already suffered so much because of “imperialism.”

On the contrary, as the facts have revealed, local corruption and the failure of the local government have badly affected the island for years, despite billions poured in by the federal government. Governor Richard Rosello even had to step down after massive protests by the people because of unhappiness over his response in part.

She then claimed that media coverage of such disasters fails to mention climate change as a cause when in fact, they often do even if there’s no factual basis to support it.

“It is not a coincidence that the truth is controversial,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “None of this is a coincidence because climate change is not a coincidence or a scientific anomaly. Climate change is a consequence. It is a consequence of our unsustainable way of life.”

She spoke of fact and consensus but then claimed it was a fact that all three airports in New York would be flooded by 2080. She said if she had a child, “he, she or they,” would have to deal with a situation where their most critical infrastructure was underwater.

She decried the “runaway pursuit of profit” and argued that the only way to address climate change was to “change “society” and control the economy, on a level that had never been done before, to mobilize the change they desired.

But really it’s the other way around. The left and socialists need climate change to justify the radical desire to control the economy and completely change the system. That’s the real aim.

Here are a few facts from meteorologist Joe Bastardi for the non-scientist AOC.

Blizzard Finally Breaks Its Silence on China Controversy, Too Little, Too Late

Westlake Legal Group b2b7f3d0-6f6c-4587-93df-2e76f50d4b93 Blizzard Finally Breaks Its Silence on China Controversy, Too Little, Too Late Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Entertainment Economy communism China Censorship Business & Economy Blizzard Allow Media Exception

Blizzard is finally weighing in on the controversy created in the past week when a professional tournament player of Hearthstone was suspended and had his prize money taken away for making a supportive comment on behalf of the Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters.

The player, Chung Ng Wai, was suspended for a year and had $10,000 taken away for him. The two casters who were conducting the interview in which Chung made the remarks were also fired.

Now Blizzard is modifying the punishment somewhat, changing the year suspension of Chung to six months and giving him back the prize money. They are also changing the firing of the casters to a 6 month suspension.

Blizzard made people aware of the change in a lengthy statement.

From The Verge:

I want to be clear: our relationships in China had no influence on our decision,” writes J. Allen Brack, the president of Blizzard Entertainment.

“We have these rules to keep the focus on the game and on the tournament to the benefit of a global audience, and that was the only consideration in the actions we took. If this had been the opposing viewpoint delivered in the same divisive and deliberate way, we would have felt and acted the same,” he continues.

Yet Brack also says that, after evaluating the situation and listening to the community, “six months for blitzchung is more appropriate, after which time he can compete in the Hearthstone pro circuit again if he so chooses.” He goes on to say, “There is a consequence for taking the conversation away from the purpose of the event and disrupting or derailing the broadcast.” ….

“With regard to the casters, remember their purpose is to keep the event focused on the tournament. That didn’t happen here, and we are setting their suspension to six months as well.”

Brack continued, claiming they still believed in one of the company’s slogans: Every Voice Matters.

“Every Voice Matters, and we strongly encourage everyone in our community to share their viewpoints in the many places available to express themselves,” Brack writes. “However, the official broadcast needs to be about the tournament and to be a place where all are welcome. In support of that, we want to keep the official channels focused on the game.”

The problem with this statement was that immediately after the incident when people were commenting about it on their forums, they wiped out the posts of people who were critical of their actions and/or kowtowing to the Chinese. They left up the posts of those who agreed with them. At this point, very few people will believe that their actions are not related to their business relationships with the Chinese.

They’ve experienced a massive blowback, with players calling for a boycott and even employees walking out on them at their office in California. Even lawmakers have condemned their actions as anti-free speech and supporting a communist regime.

It’s unlikely this statement at this point, too little, too late, will convince people.

Chuck Todd and Other Media Refuse to Cover Questions About Hunter Biden

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-12-at-5.35.19-PM Chuck Todd and Other Media Refuse to Cover Questions About Hunter Biden Ukraine media bias Joe Biden hunter biden Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats China biden Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

Chuck Todd and some others in the media must be taking lessons from the NBA now.

The NBA thinks if they don’t hold media availabilities, the controversy over their kowtowing to the Chinese will just go away.

Todd and the others apparently think the same thing is true as to questions regarding Hunter Biden. If they don’t cover it, maybe people will just stop talking about it.

“We aren’t going to play the sound,” Todd said of President Donald Trump’s remarks about Hunter Biden during the the president’s rally in Minnesota. “We’re not going to repeat the president’s vicious attacks on Hunter Biden.”

Why? According to Todd, “whatever you thought of [Hunter Biden’s] decisions, he’s not a public figure. He isn’t running for office. And he’s not a campaign surrogate. He’s not even on the campaign trail. And he isn’t in any way asking for this attention, obviously…It’s newsworthy, but we can’t in good conscience amplify those attacks, so we wouldn’t.”

Then he really went over the slide with pomposity. “We all need to play a role in not rewarding this kind of politics. This is the job, not just the press, but of anyone who has sworn an oath to defend the Constitution.”

Someone get a shovel because it’s getting a little deep in here.

First of all, Hunter Biden isn’t 13 year old Barron Trump.

Put aside your political sides for the moment and anyone can see the proper concerns about the son of the Vice President working with a China-backed company and a Ukrainian company with government connections and getting a boatload of money in the process while his father is the point man on those two countries for the Obama administration with his hand on billions in aid. And that’s without any intervention by his father then the VP and now a presidential candidate in getting the prosecutor who was investigating his son’s firm fired by threatening to withhold aid. Or the Vice President flying Hunter to China on Air Force Two to talk with the man with whom he’s making a billion dollar deal.

As Jerry Dunleavy with the Washington Examiner observes, it’s surely just a coincidence that Todd doesn’t want to note that he, Todd, was mentioned in the Trump remarks about Hunter Biden.

Todd’s efforts to go to bat for the Bidens might be another reason that he doesn’t want to mention it to Americans.

Just as a factual matter for Todd, Joe Biden has mentioned that Hunter will indeed be joining him on the campaign trail.

Additionally, it’s surely just happenstance that this comes after a full-court press by Joe Biden to shut down any media attention to the subject of his son and his business dealings. As Jonathan Turley notes at The Hill, Hunter Biden is “he who shall remain nameless,” by edict of his father to the media.

Indeed, the Biden campaign has been remarkably open in demanding that news organizations stop airing interviews or publishing articles about the allegations. Instead of calling it “fake news” (which is virtually copyrighted by Trump), the Biden campaign calls such coverage “conspiracy theories.”

Thus, the campaign wrote to various networks, demanding that they stop airing interviews on the scandal with figures such as Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani. Kate Bedingfield, deputy manager of the Biden campaign, also denounced The New York Times for publishing an op-ed by author Peter Schweizer on the controversy. The campaign apparently expected the Times and the networks to fall in line and bar others from even expressing a view.

Most recently, the campaign fired off letters to Facebook, Twitter and Google, demanding that they take down Trump ads referencing the Hunter Biden contracts. This normally would be viewed as unbridled hubris and arrogance — except that many TV news hosts are doing precisely what the campaign has demanded.

CNN and other media has tried to stop people from commenting about the Hunter question, claiming variously it’s already been investigated, there’s no evidence or that it’s all “conspiracy theories.”

To claim that questions about Hunter Biden are not legitimate is itself an illegitimate and disingenuous argument. And it’s particularly so from media who has entertained all manner of speculation and calumny about Trump and his family in regards to the Russia collusion hoax. We’re sure Todd’s position has nothing at all to do with helping the Democratic narrative with regard to questions about the Bidens. And when did journalists take an oath to defend the Constitution? Because it sure hasn’t felt like it with the way that many of them have approached the due process for the last few years and pushed their own conspiracies that have greivously injured the health of the body politic.

NBA Has a Solution to the Controversy: No More Media Availabilities

Westlake Legal Group fb5f6ccb-b576-4b3e-b2ea-a1c5df0489c6 NBA Has a Solution to the Controversy: No More Media Availabilities Sports NBA Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post communism China Censorship Allow Media Exception

The NBA has been earning a lot of flack in the wake of its response to Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey’s support of the Hong Kong protesters. The NBA then denounced Morey’s remarks saying it didn’t represent the Rockets or the NBA and Morey was forced to apologize.

That infuriated people and was widely viewed as kowtowing to China because of the NBA’s business interests with the Chinese.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver then tried to clean it up, still equivocating, but it didn’t go well, particularly after further media incidents during the week.

Fans came out to the games with “Free Hong Kong” shirts and were ejected from games. Congress then blasted the NBA for their actions.

CNN sports reporter Christina Macfarlane dared to ask Rockets players James Harden and Russell Westbrook about the controversy during a media availability in Tokyo. She was then stopped by a team media person who wouldn’t let the players respond and they took the mic from Macfarlane. The NBA later apologized, saying that shouldn’t have happened.

The NBA also got bad attention after Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr insulted America while defending the Chinese, comparing the communists to the United States and saying we had people being mowed down by AR-15s in shopping malls, so “nobody’s perfect.”

Needless to say, neither media event played well.

So the NBA now has the solution. Are they going to cut loose bending over for the Chinese? No.

But they are going to stop having media availabilities while the teams are abroad in Asia for games, according to the Daily Wire.

On Friday, the NBA released a statement saying that allowing press to continue to ask questions put players in a “complicated” and “unfair” position.

“They [the teams] have been placed into a complicated and unprecedented situation while abroad and we believe it would be unfair to ask them to address these matters in real time,” the statement said, according to CNN.

There is no availability for the final game with the Los Angeles Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets and there wasn’t any for the game on Thursday at the request of the Chinese government, according to CBC.

The NBA said however that this was in the interests of their players and not because the Chinese were influencing them, that the players were free to speak without retribution if they so chose.

Somehow one thinks that shutting down more media to make the Chinese happy doesn’t actually help you say that you’re not being controlled by them.

Watch: Video That Shows How Unhinged The Left Has Become

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-12-at-1.43.15-PM Watch: Video That Shows How Unhinged The Left Has Become unhinged leftists Trump rally protests progressives MAGA hats Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post antifa Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

President Donald Trump held a packed rally Thursday night in Minneapolis, Minnesota and enthusiastic supporters were out in force.

About 20,000 were in the building with more outside. People even began lining up outside two days before.

But outside there were hundreds of protesters. And despite the presence of police, Trump supporters were harassed and attacked outside the venue. The police themselves were harassed, with protesters calling them “pigs” and trying to incite them. Police had to use pepper spray on some of the protesters.

We reported on attacks on Trump supporters outside of President Donald Trump’s Minnesota rally.

Now, more video has emerged. The video shows more of just how unhinged some on the left are and the scary nature of the leftist mob violence.

They chased after one man after someone called out, “There’s a Nazi over there,” attacking him as he tries to get away, smacking him.

Here’s another view of that same encounter as the man flees the mob.

Here’s the very tolerant left surrounding a man, hitting him in the head, smacking the Trump hat off his head and then stealing his hat.

Schaffer reported there were many such encounters where Trump and MAGA hats were stolen.

How unhinged are they? Well, you have to be pretty unhinged when you assault someone in the middle of a live interview.

But this shows, right here, the difference between the right and the unhinged left. The Vice interviewer was justifiably shocked. But the Trump supporter shrugs it off, continues on with the focus of the interview as the coward flees. Two of the protesters apologize for the coward, although one equates the hat with being as hateful as the spit again, showing the lack of reality even in the person who had enough sense to apologize.

Trump folks should put this in an ad and play it on a loop: this is what we are fighting against.
