Pants on Fire: Babylon Bee Cleverly Fact Checks Kamala Harris’s Democratic Debate “Food Fight” Claim

Westlake Legal Group KamalaHarrisDemDebate-620x348 Pants on Fire: Babylon Bee Cleverly Fact Checks Kamala Harris’s Democratic Debate “Food Fight” Claim Politics North Carolina kamala harris Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture Campaigns California Babylon Bee Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections 2020

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) speaks during the Democratic presidential debate – 6/27/19. Screen grab via NBC News.

Leave it to the Babylon Bee to be the voice of reason after two nights of tumultuous Democratic presidential debates.

During the early part of Thursday night’s debate in Miami, FL, several of the candidates started talking over each other – and the moderators couldn’t get control of the situation. That’s when Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) stepped in:

It was Sen. Kamala Harris’ turn to speak as the rhetoric was flying Thursday night at the second 2020 Democratic presidential debate.

As her fellow candidates shouted around her, the former California state attorney general smiled and raised her hands.

“Hey, guys, you know what? America does not want to witness a food fight. They want to know how we’re going to put food on their table,” Harris said to raucous cheers and applause.

Her parting of the debate waters in Miami came after an exchange between former Vice President Joe Biden and Rep. Eric Swalwell of California on old vs. new leadership within the Democratic Party — and other candidates had wanted in.

Watch video of the segment below:

In the aftermath of the debate, numerous fact checks were done by mainstream media news outlets about the candidates and their claims on various issues including border security, abortion, and the Green New Deal.

The Babylon Bee, however, zeroed in on probably the most disputed claim of the night: Was Harris telling the truth when she said Americans didn’t want to see a food fight break out?

As it turns out, she was wrong:

When polled, over 90% of Americans responded to the survey, “FOOD FIGHT! FOOD FIGHT! FOOD FIGHT!”

Many said that seeing the massive food battle royale between the many candidates would bring them much more joy than Kamala Harris putting food on their table.

In fact, it is also false that Americans want Kamala Harris putting food on their table at all.

Again, a vast majority of those surveyed responded that they were happy to put their own food on their own table, thank you very much, despite the detailed report from the Harris campaign that outlines a delicious “gruel cube” delivered weekly to every home [for] American families to gnaw on for seven days, providing all the needed nutrients, vitamins, and energy with much less waste.

I think in Politifact terms, Harris’s claim would come pretty close to being classified as a “pants on fire” lie.

Because of course most Americans wanted to see a food fight last night. Amirite?

In all seriousness, props to the Bee for catching something a lot of us didn’t: That Harris said “They want to know how we’re going to put food on their table” as if it’s the government’s responsibility to provide for all Americans.

Jon Voight Responds to Alyssa Milano’s Castigation of Him as an ‘F-Lister’: ‘Ignorance Doesn’t Scare Me’

Jon Voight isn’t afraid to speak his mind. And he certainly isn’t concerned with what Hollywood thinks.

For a fantastic example, look no further than his video declaring Donald Trump “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln” (here).

Very, very bold move.

Actress Alyssa Milano’s made some bold moves, too. 

Like:

  • Retaliating against someone telling women what they can do with their bodies by telling women they should not do things with their bodies (here)
  • Pining for a day when the American government will grant women the rights enshrined in the Constitution (here)
  • Proclaiming that men cannot be allowed to be equal to women (here)
  • Forgetting there are police (here)
  • Demanding that all women are right because some women have been right (here)
  • Coming within three steps of outlawing height (here)

And recently, television’s Samantha Micelli addressed Angelina Jolie’s dad and his praise of the President…with this:

The “F-lister,” in this case, has an Oscar.

On Friday’s Fox & Friends, Jon responded to the woman who co-host Brian Kilmeade called “that legend…who might be the best actress ever”:

“Darling Alyssa. God bless you. … I pray God sends his light of truth on all those with no truth about the Republicans and about our president. And may God bless America.”

Jon went on to note that he was part of the anti-war movement of the 60’s, and that he later found truth.

“I have sympathy for people that are in ignorance. It doesn’t scare me. Ignorance doesn’t scare me. I was like that myself. I just root for everybody to come to the truth.”

He also lamented the indoctrination of the young and impressionable in the ways of socialism:

“If they knew anything about the Second World War, they’d know that socialism is a disaster. It’s never produced anything anywhere in the world. It’s an economic sinkhole, but it also produces nothing but misery and violence.”

I think most would agree that “if they knew anything” is applicable to much of political raging these days. Hopefully, for some, “when they know” does, too.

Kamala Harris’ Attack on Joe Biden May Have Backfired

Westlake Legal Group 12c563de-9be4-4eea-a878-89cdc373b2a6-620x317 Kamala Harris’ Attack on Joe Biden May Have Backfired Yaas Queen WRONG racism pundits Politics MSNBC media bias kamala harris Joe Biden Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story democrats Democrat primary Democrat Debates CNN Backfire attack 2020 election

There’s a reason why you should always be skeptical of conventional wisdom when it comes to elections.

Conventional wisdom said Trump should have been finished after almost every 2016 primary debate. It didn’t happen. There are many reasons for that, not the least of which is that what gets the juices flowing for beltway insiders may not appeal to normal people.

Is there another example of that dynamic beginning to play out?

Last night, Kamala Harris savaged Joe Biden on the topic of race in the first Democratic party debate. The consensus opinion wasn’t just that Biden lost the exchange, but that Harris had suddenly catapulted herself into the top tier of candidates. In fact, some of the better markets even have her as the front runner now.

With all due respect to the top oddsmakers, that’s incredibly stupid. Debates rarely have such an dramatic effect so as to boost someone languishing in the mid single digits above a guy who’s pushing 40%. In this case, it was a 2 minute exchange. Harris did not dominate the rest of the debate and actually may have alienated some voters by tacking so far left.

Harris, despite all the media fawning and selfies with Mika, is still a sucker’s bet at this point.

Here’s some evidence of that.

In other words, Harris hitting Biden seems to have had little effect on the key demographic it was designed to shift. In reality, it may have even backfired, as Biden saw a large bump in favor-ability after the debate last night.

The most obvious reason for this? Black Americans aren’t stupid enough to believe Joe Biden is actually a racist and they also don’t like it when the other candidates attack Barack Obama, which Harris did directly on the issue of immigration.

Biden was a loser last night, but it had almost nothing to do with Kamala Harris and everything to do with him embracing far-left ideas that will haunt him in the general.

This entire media reaction we’ve seen in the the aftermath of last night shows precisely why they are often so bad at their jobs. They think people are robotic, monolithic groups that can just be counted on to march to the beat of whatever the media demands. That’s not how it works. Rachel Maddow may be getting a thrill up her leg over Harris yelling at Biden, but normal people see it for what it is. Pointless bluster from an otherwise very unlikable politician.

Some may say it worked for Donald Trump in 2016, but that’d be completely misreading what actually happened (which many Trump critics are prone to do). Trump didn’t win because he called Rubio names, although his fighter mentality did help. He primarily won because he appealed to working class Americans. Harris doesn’t do that and it’s why Biden will likely continue to dominate her everywhere but within the studios of MSNBC.

Trump Was Right: He Can Strike Iran Without Congressional Approval

Westlake Legal Group donald-trump-iran-sanctions-color-adjust-SCREENSHOT-620x332 Trump Was Right: He Can Strike Iran Without Congressional Approval Trump Iran Front Page Stories Featured Story executive action Congressional Approval

[Screenshot from CBS News, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CymSjk9hCVs]

The debate over whether or not the president can retaliate should Iran strike U.S. interests in the Middle East will continue as the Senate defeated a measure to curb executive power Friday.

Trump has said he believes he can make the decision to retaliate against Iran without Congressional approval as Iran has rattled sabers by allegedly striking oil tankers located near the Strait of Hormuz and shooting down an American drone.

Sens. Tom Udall of New Mexico and Tim Kaine of Virginia, both Democrats, introduced the measure that would have prevented any funding for use in a strike against Iran without Congressional approval. That measure, which had the backing of a few Republicans such as Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, was defeated Friday in a vote that marked the longest in Senate history. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) held the vote open for the entire day “in order to accommodate the Senate Democrats running for president who are returning from the candidate debates in Miami.

The Senate measure was introduced after Trump abruptly abandoned plans to retaliate against Iran for shooting down an American drone in international airspace.

Trump later threatened Iran with “obliteration” if he attacked any American interest in the region.

Udall argued that Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Obama-era nuclear agreement with Iran and impose new sanctions has pushed the United States toward a war.

“Since this administration turned away from diplomacy and resorted to the maximum pressure campaign to box in Iran, the risk of war has steadily risen,” Udall said prior to the vote. “Just last week, we were 10 minutes away from a strike on Iran. Ten minutes from a nightmare of escalation in the Gulf,” said Udall.”

Trump said he believes retaliatory actions against Iran do not require congressional approval and most Republicans agree.

Had he measure passed, it would have been added to the 2020 defense spending authorization that passed Thursday.

Meme of the Week: Cory Booker ‘Gives’ AOC the Side-Eye During Her Visit to the Southern Border

Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) look on as Beto O’Rourke speaks Spanish at the Democratic presidential debate – 6/26/19. Screen grab via NBC News.

What do you get when you combine a photo of Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-NJ) now-infamous side-eye look with an image of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) visiting our southern border? A much needed laugh at the end of a brutally frustrating week.

As Red State‘s Elizabeth Vaughn wrote Thursday, one of the more humorous moments of the first Democratic debate Wednesday night was Booker giving Beto O’Rourke the side-eye as the former El Paso Congressman tried to answer a question in Spanish.

A brief recap, via The Hill:

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) explained the side-eye look he gave when his fellow White House hopeful, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D), started speaking Spanish during the first night of Democratic presidential debates.

“I just knew he had laid a gauntlet down,” Booker told CNN’s Anderson Cooper with a chuckle. “And I was talking a little bit with [Julián] Castro. Both he and I knew, as people who can speak Spanish, that now we were gonna bring it as well.”

He added that he too “pulled out” a bit of Spanish during the two-hour debate Wednesday evening, realizing that “there’s a lot of bilingual people, some even trilingual, in this race.”

Watch the video clip below, which is hilariously set to zoom in twice on Booker’s face to give you the full effect of how he stared at O’Rourke:

(I laughed for a solid five minutes after watching this the first time!)

Earlier this week, Bonchie wrote about photos taken of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) during a trip she took to the southern border before she was elected to serve in Congress. They showed what looked like an emotional AOC reacting to seeing something horrible just across the fences:

As Jennifer Van Laar noted later, however, the images appeared to have been staged, because a more broad image of the landscape in front of Ocasio-Cortez displayed nothing but border patrol personnel:

After Booker’s look and the images of AOC went viral, video producer and Twitter superstar Caleb Hull came up with this humorous meme of Booker giving her the side eye during her 2018 trip:

For those who haven’t seen it, I thought it was worth sharing. Because we desperately needed to end this week on a humorous note.

After Paul Krugman Compares Republicans to Neo-Nazis, He Beclowns Himself Complaining About Socialist Labels

Westlake Legal Group Paul-Krugman-smile1-800x416 After Paul Krugman Compares Republicans to Neo-Nazis, He Beclowns Himself Complaining About Socialist Labels socialism Social Media Politics Paul Krugman North Carolina Media journalism It Is Okay To Laugh Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Culture AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

As I’ve written before, I’m not really sure what’s worse: New York Times columnist Paul Krugman attempting to differentiate between “brands of anti-Semitism”, his poor track record when it comes to predicting the economy, or him ignorantly griping about the worthiness of Medal of Freedom recipients.

This week I think he’s managed to outdo himself on all of those fronts.

On Wednesday, the paper’s graphic editor Sahil Chinoy penned a column in which he asserted that the Republican party is much more further right than the Democratic party is left:

The Republican Party leans much farther right than most traditional conservative parties in Western Europe and Canada, according to an analysis of their election manifestos. It is more extreme than Britain’s Independence Party and France’s National Rally (formerly the National Front), which some consider far-right populist parties. The Democratic Party, in contrast, is positioned closer to mainstream liberal parties.

These findings are based on data from the Manifesto Project, which reviews and categorizes each line in party manifestos, the documents that lay out a group’s goals and policy ideas. We used the topics that the platforms emphasize, like market regulation and multiculturalism, to put them on a common scale.

A lot of highly questionable claims and comparisons were made in the piece, especially when you consider being on “the right” in some countries means vastly different things than what it means here. But Krugman nevertheless eagerly jumped on board to praise the article and the accompanying graphic (h/t: Twitchy):

A few hours later, the Nobel Memorial Prize-winning economist expanded on his thoughts. He insinuated the mainstream media – who are unquestionably left-wing and in some cases borderline socialist – has somehow been unfair to Democrats by allowing Republicans to call them socialists without being questioned on it.

The “fascist” label for Republicans, per Krugman, is much closer to the truth:

So he can falsely compare Republicans to neo-Nazis without blinking an eye – and without question, but Republicans who correctly point out how the left is openly embracing socialism should be called out by the mainstream media?

Democrats have a presidential candidate who is unashamed to call himself a socialist. In fact, the last time Sen. Bernie Sanders ran for president, he and his socialist platform gave the eventual Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton a run for her money.

And if that’s not proof enough of the left’s lurch towards socialism, how about we let admitted socialist Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) back me up on this? The freshman Congresswoman embraces the label, but hates how – in her mind – Republicans have unfairly used the word to scare people:

I rest my case.

The Democratic Primary Debate Moderators Were an Embarrassment

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-3-5-620x317 The Democratic Primary Debate Moderators Were an Embarrassment Soft Ball Questions Rachel Maddow Politics NBC News MSNBC media bias Lester Holt kamala harris Joe Biden Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story embarrassing democrats CNN Chuck Todd 2020 election

With the first Democratic primary debate in the books, there’s time to reflect on the spectacle that was witnessed.

As I posted earlier today, I believe that Joe Biden was the biggest loser over the event, not because he’s going to lose to Kamala Harris, but because he went on record with left-wing positions that will kneecap him in the general election.

But it wasn’t just the candidates who were losers last night. So were the moderators.

In our live-blog here at RedState, I noted that if Chuck Todd had any bit of reputation left before the night began, he burned it to the ground by the time things were over. The point of a moderator is not to reinforce the correctness of a partisan idea and then ask them the candidates which one of them are the best at accomplishing said partisan idea.

There’s supposed be a challenging of positions, of fallacies, and of presumptions that are often made in political campaigns. When Joe Biden claimed the tax cuts were for the wealthy, a good moderator would have corrected him and made him answer for his lie. When Kamala Harris brought up 1970’s busing, someone with integrity would have pointed out to her that the program was actually a failure.

Furthermore, a good debate makes candidates answer for their past inconsistencies and the technical workings of the “plans” that are spewed forth. Questions like “how will we pay for that” or “how would you get such an extreme idea through Congress?”

We got none of that the past two nights. Instead, we got this.

Just embarrassing.

Keep in mind that Fox News has never and will likely never allow Sean Hannity or Tucker Carlson to moderate a debate. As it stands, they won’t even let them anchor election coverage. Yet, MSNBC trotted out Rachel Maddow, one of the craziest, most partisan voices on TV as the headlining moderator.

The other moderators were no better, with all of them, including the supposed straight shooting Lester Holt framing far-left positions as rational wisdom with almost every question.

These news outlets are going to have to decide what they want to be. Because you can’t claim to be a protected class of truth tellers that are vital to our Republic one minute and operate as partisan hacks the next. Well, I take that back. You can do that, but you’ll lose all credibly and good will in the process, which is exactly what’s happened to the mainstream media.

NBC News was already a joke. Instead of trying to right that ship by asking hard hitting questions the past two days, they chose to throw slow-pitch softballs. You know what would have actually been useful? To have someone like Chris Wallace, who notedly does not like Trump at all, actually push these 2020 Democrats on their insanity. Instead, the DNC has boycotted Fox News all together.

On a related note, if I’m the Republican Party, I don’t even bother giving NBC or CNN any debates next primary cycle. Doing so would only reinforce the double standards at play.

An exclusive podcast from RedState about the connections of politics and entertainment, covering the stories from Burbank to The Beltway

The big news of the week was the herd of delusional Democratic hopefuls staged their first debate. Uh, debates. There are so damned many of them that the field has to be divided into two still-too-big fields of candidates.

Apart from that clown show crammed into a comically small car there was Washington intrigue, Hollywood foibles, and also a significant cultural anniversary this week.

  • Brad has been uneasy as the Democrats have swarmed his area of South Florida, and they attracted Alyssa Milano along with them. (Get the kids into the hurricane shelter!) There was little surprise how they blathered a bunch of lies during their visit.
  • Hope Hicks was brought in to testify on The Hill, and while the press and Democrats claimed she proved the Mueller report, what they ended up doing is showing they did not actually listen to what she said.
  • Clint Eastwood has become a delight by bucking the supposed trend in Hollywood by announcing he will in fact be shooting a new production in Georgia.
  • In keeping with the tradition of Hollywood stealing intellectual property it was announced that a collection of stars would steal the idea from the reading of the Peter Styrzok-Lisa Page texts, by staging a reading of The Mueller Report. We cannot understand why, considering everyone has already been able to read it.
  • Sarah did an exploration of the seemingly growing trend of women being drawn to socialism. Brad could not detail why they were wrong, for fear of mansplaining.
  • In typical fashion, there had to be something offensive found in a major Hollywood film. This time a doll in “Toy Story 4” with a broken speaker box is offensive to people with disabilities…somehow?
  • And lastly there was a commemoration of a cultural touchstone — this week is the 40th anniversary of the release of Bill Murray in “Meatballs”.

Andrew Yang Claimed MSNBC Cut His Microphone During the Debates and There’s Evidence He’s Right

Westlake Legal Group 3cd3a9e0-fd4e-4e17-9395-8af51b3ba99a-620x317 Andrew Yang Claimed MSNBC Cut His Microphone During the Debates and There’s Evidence He’s Right Politics MSNBC microphone Front Page Stories Featured Story elections democrats debates Andrew Yang Allow Media Exception 2020

Andrew  Yang was the unknown, unlooked for, and frankly well liked addition to the Democratic debate on Thursday night. Those who tuned in to see Yang had to go disappointed despite their fondness for him due to the fact that he wasn’t really the biggest fish in the pond…and the fact that MSNBC cut his microphone.

Yang made the claim on Twitter, setting off a firestorm of anger, and kicking off the #LetYangSpeak hashtag on Twitter.

“…I feel bad for those who tuned in to see and support me that I didn’t get more airtime. Will do better (my mic being off unless called on didn’t help) and glad to have another opportunity in July (and afterwards)!” tweeted Yang.

To show proof that Yang did have his microphone cut, a short video was released showing the moment they cut his microphone while other Democrats were allowed to interject freely.

Yang appears to be polling well, but despite this, he was only given slightly over two minutes of talking time and was given two questions. Meanwhile, Michael Bennet was given five questions despite polling lower than Yang.

While Yang may be liked, he’s not a key player within the Democratic party and thus is being shoved aside. The funny thing is that if he gains popularity and is caught being discriminated against by the mainstream media and the Democratic party at large, it could create something of a Ron Paul situation as some have pointed out. Of course, cutting Yang’s microphone will not help that situation at all, and will only create a Streisand effect that will amplify his voice even louder.

From what he demonstrated during the debate, he seems reasonable and approachable. A moderate in many cases and welcoming to people of various party affiliations.

And that’s exactly why the Democrat party overall will want to reject him as a potential candidate. As the radical parts of the Democrat party rule the roost, anything to the right of Marx is going to be seen as unacceptable.

Tucker Carlson: 2020’s Democratic Debate Proves the Party Has Officially Gone Insane

[Screenshot from Fox News, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddKQIUsmJpU]

 

Personally, I find that one of the toughest things to watch is politicians pandering to their audience.

Wednesday night’s maiden Democratic debate? Yikes.

The endeavor struck me as a showcasing of the incredibly out-of-touch breaking their necks to out-woke each other.

At points, I got the impression they’d have sawed off their limbs if it would’ve clinched victory.

In light of the spectacle, on Thursday, Tucker Carlson announced: the Democratic Party has officially gone insane.

He opened with this:

“Elite Democrats have permanently broken from reality. They no longer care about what’s true, what’s possible. Even what’s real. They live in a kind of dream state — a place of fantasy punctuated by howls of self-righteousness.”

Then he barreled into the antics Julian Castro, which were also covered by Sister Toldjah.

Take it away, Tucker:

“[K]eep in mind he was an actual cabinet secretary in the Obama administration — it was only a couple of years of ago. Watch as he explains that men who get pregnant have a moral right to taxpayer-funded abortions. I’m not joking.

Sadly, he really wasn’t.



I give you the most insane thing I’ve ever heard a politician say:

“I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom; I believe in reproductive justice.”

Note: The way he says “justice” is good for at least 4 or 5 views.

Continuing…

“And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman — or, let’s also not forget, someone in the trans community, a trans female — is poor doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose.”

Right — some men want to have abor– hey, wait a minute…

Back to Tucker:

“And so, they cheered. Behold, late empire liberalism in full flower. Who exactly is the constituency for Castro’s idea? Men dressed as women who get pregnant — that’s the constituency.”

It gets better:

“Unfortunately, there are precisely zero people on Planet Earth who fit that description — not a single person, actually. There never have been any people like that. There never will be any people like that. Why? Because it’s impossible. Biological men cannot get pregnant. Pretending otherwise is lunacy. It’s the very definition of lunacy.”

As I pointed out here, Democratic politics appear to have been particularly penetrated by people saying things that sound good but make no sense. Tucker alluded to the same:

“[J]ulian Castro doesn’t care. Taxpayer-funded transgender abortion sounds like something that all good progressives should support. So Castro fervently does. And critically, he knows that nobody in the room will defend science or pause to ask him, ‘What the hell are you talking about??’ They can’t say a word. They’re too intimidated. They know HR is watching. So they nod like monkeys, as if everything he is saying is completely sane. ‘Oh, good point, Mr. Secretary. Trans-females shouldn’t have to pay for their own abortions. That’s racist.’”

Tucker went on to lambaste Julian and Elizabeth Warren for suggesting illegal immigration shouldn’t be illegal.

Next, he played a clip of New York Mayor Bill deBlasio doing something I’ve relayed before (here): touting himself as a governmental Robin Hood, primed to take money from the wrong people and giving it to the right ones:

Tucker summarized:

“DeBlasio promised to seize your money and give it to his supporters, who he explained deserve it much more than you do.”

Watch the video for much more, including a colossally winceworthy speaking of Spanish by Cory “Farticus” Booker (here) and anti-privileged-millionaire privileged millionaire Beto O’Rourke (here).

There’s certainly some weird stuff goin’ on on their side of the aisle.
