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.

More Video Of Justin Trudeau And This Is The Worst Yet

Westlake Legal Group AP_16220564458740 More Video Of Justin Trudeau And This Is The Worst Yet Uncategorized racism Justin Trudeau Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Canada Campaigns blackface

Last week, pictures and video of Justin Trudeau blew up and threatened his campaign for re-election.

There were multiple incidents. One was where he was dressed as Aladdin and made up in blackface at an “Arabian Nights” party at the private high school at which he was teaching. He reportedly was the only one to wear a costume and his face and his hands were blacked up. He was a 29 years old. The second incident was a picture from high school were he appeared in a show singing “The Banana Boat” song. He wore blackface and an afro.

The last incident was a video that Global News Canada found. But their copy was grainy and difficult to see in detail. Now another Canadian outlet, The Post Milennial, has posted a higher quality version of the video.

Here it is:

He’s wearing an afro and appears to, again, have dyed multiple parts of his body, from his legs and arms to his tongue. He also ripped up his jeans and appears to have enhanced his crotch area.

Yikes. Can it get much worse?

But he seems resolved to weather it out, employing that well-known “if a liberal does it, it’s cool” exception.

Coocoo Coup: Elizabeth Warren Growls Impeachment – of Kavanaugh, Too. But Craziness Want Make Her President

It seems some of the Democratic Party has given up on defeating their ideological enemies with superior policies, effective government, or the will of the people.

It’s prison rules now, and goofy claims mixed with backdoor ousting appear to be their new recipe for success.

Lo, as noted by The Daily Wire:

In just one week alone, practically all the party’s 2020 contenders have endorsed the impeachment of President Trump in one way or another, and are now beginning to circle back to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

And now, Elizabeth Warren — a woman who has no chance of beating Donald Trump on the debate stage — is joining the cacophony.

On Friday, the woman who apparently had never looked into a mirror until someone told her she wasn’t an American Indian called for Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanaugh to be impeached. On what strength? That’d be the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, who shouted from the rooftops — 35 years later — that Bret sexually assaulted her in high school, with no proof, no witness, and no corroboration.

Thus tweeted the 2020 hopeful:

“I still believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. And like the man who appointed him, Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached.”

Elizabeth’s also on the Ukraine bus, as she made clear to CNN:

“Right now, I’d like to just see us do the Ukraine issue because it is so clear and it is such a clear violation of law. The President is asking for help against one of his political rivals and asking a foreign government for a thing of value for himself personally. That’s against the law.”

It sure makes sense that she’d want Ukraine to stay in the spotlight — it’s not gonna exactly help her rival, Joe.

As reported by The Washington Post — as per TDW — it’s become a common practice for Trump to place his phone calls on a secure server in order to prevent leaks.

However, Elizabeth pointed to the employment as a sign of mighty weaselly behavior on the part of The Donald:

“Right now, I’d like to just see us do the Ukraine issue because it is so clear and it is such a clear violation of law. The President is asking for help against one of his political rivals and asking a foreign government for a thing of value for himself personally. That’s against the law.”

See if this sounds familiar…think back to 2016:

“I believe that this issue is about Donald Trump and that’s where we need to keep our focus,” she continued. “He is the President of the United States and he has solicited a foreign government interfering in our 2020 election. That is a threat to democracy and it is a threat to our Constitution. That’s where we need to focus.”

Either Trump is dumb enough to do the same thing twice, or Democrats are dumb enough to repeatedly accuse him of it.

Which is the case?

Elizabeth should push hard.

She recently made a move to paint herself a tiger:



But the dude she’s destined to face is the biggest cat of ’em all, and he’s bound and determined to Make America…

Remember the ‘Secret Server’ Trump Used to Store Zelensky Call? The Obama Administration used the Same One

Westlake Legal Group Susan-Rice Remember the ‘Secret Server’ Trump Used to Store Zelensky Call? The Obama Administration used the Same One whistleblower Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky Susan Rice Rudy Giuliani President Trump Obama Administration Kurt Volker Impeachment of President Trump Front Page Stories Featured Story fake news donald trump democrats corruption Andriy Yermak Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

 

Whistleblower Mania is folding faster than a house of cards.

Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice, unintentionally and begrudgingly, threw cold water on yet another allegation. The story we’ve been hearing is that White House officials were so worried about this phone call that they saved it on a secret server.

Speaking at the Texas Tribunal Festival on Friday night, Rice said:

What [the Trump administration] did instead of storing it in the normal system, which is protected and classified, even though there was no classified substance in that actual discussion. Instead of putting it where it normally resides, they hid it on a very highly sensitive, highly compartmented server that very few people in the U.S. government have access to in order to bury it.

The interviewer asked Rice how often Obama moved conversations onto that type of a server. Rice replied that they never moved them over unless they were, in their substance, classified. Asked again, Rice said, “It’s rare for a conversation to be classified to that highest level, it’s not impossible, it’s very rare — even when two leaders are discussing classified information.”

Ultimately, she acknowledged that the Obama administration did sometimes use that server.

The use of this server has become common practice in the Trump administration for a valid reason. Early in his presidency, the contents of Trump’s conversations with leaders from Mexico and Australia were leaked to the media.

ABC News reported:

The two calls in early 2017, with leaders from Australia and from Mexico, leaked early in Trump’s administration, and sources said the procedure to store them quickly changed — many calls between the president and world leaders instead were stored in a secure server to avoid leaks. The sources who talked to ABC News did caution that it’s unclear if the calls being stored were done so for national security or for political concerns.

One source said it became “basically standard operating procedure” for many of the conversations Trump has had during his time in office.

Rather than the Trump administration panicking over this conversation and trying to bury it as the press had characterized it, it was business as usual. And, Susan Rice, as hard as she tried not to admit it, indicated that sometimes they used this secret server as well.

Another one bites the dust. In the last three days, many of the whistleblower’s claims and the interpretations spun by the eager liberal commentators have been blown up.

First, we were told there were eight references to Biden during President Trump’s July 25th conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Turns out there were three. Next, the media breathlessly reported that a ‘promise’ had been made, there was a quid pro quo. There was no promise, no quid pro quo.

My colleague Nick Arama reported (here) two more whistleblower claims which have been debunked. The complaint said that Counselor to the State Department Ulrich Brechbuhl was on the Trump/Zelensky call. He was not.

The document also claimed that “by mid-May, U.S. diplomat Kurt Volker sought to “contain the damage” from Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani’s outreach to Ukraine.” Text messages from Volker to Giuliani have since shown that to be false. Even ABC News has acknowledged this. They reported, “The State Department has confirmed that Volker put Giuliani in touch with Zelensky adviser Andriy Yermak at Yermak’s request.”

Last night The Federalist’s Sean Davis reported that days before the whistleblower submitted his complaint, the intelligence community “secretly eliminated the requirement that whistleblower complaints contain only direct, first-hand knowledge of wrongdoing allegations.” This change allowed the whistleblower to file a complaint based on hearsay information.

Right about now, Republicans could use a nice, devastating Inspector General report showing FISA abuse by the FBI. It’s been two weeks since DOJ Inspector General submitted his report to the DOJ for classification. Hopefully, it will be released this week. President Trump, as well as the rest of us, need a win.

Source Claims Casey Anthony Wants to Have More Children – She ‘Feels Like Her Biological Clock is Ticking’

Westlake Legal Group child-1440526_1280-620x413 Source Claims Casey Anthony Wants to Have More Children – She ‘Feels Like Her Biological Clock is Ticking’ Uncategorized murder Front Page Stories Florida Featured Story Culture crime Courts children caylee anthony Casey Anthony Allow Media Exception

 

 

In 2008, Casey Anthony was indicted by a grand jury for the first-degree murder of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Other charges: aggravated child abuse, aggravated manslaughter of a child, and four counts of providing false information to police.

As stated by ABC News:

Casey Anthony’s legal team opened her defense by admitting that she had lied about a babysitter having stolen her daughter Caylee a month earlier, claiming the child had drowned instead.

She was sentenced to four years for lying, but the murder charge was unsuccessful.

I could write much more, but let’s just say many, many, many people believe she was guilty.

Yet, a jury felt otherwise, and now the South Florida resident is reportedly lookin’ to make more.

Babies, that is.

Someone close to Casey told People magazine she “feels like her biological clock is ticking,” and that she wants to “find some meaning in her life.”

She may have been trying to do that last part for a long while — following her 2011 release from jail, she took to the shelter of the Cross Church of Palm City.

It seems a new phase is now in order.

According to the source, Casey’s no longer the “young girl who everyone saw on trial.” She purportedly now wants “marriage, family, the white picket fence. … In some ways, that’s very appealing to Casey. She’d want things to be less dysfunctional than the family she had growing up, but she likes the idea of stability.”

It’s not the first time the notion’s come up in the press.

In a 2017 article by the AP, Casey expressed her desire to have more children.

But she could “never live with” someone being mean to them:

“If I am blessed enough to have another child — if I’d be dumb enough to bring another kid into this world knowing that there’d be a potential that some little snot-nosed kid would then say something mean to my kid — I don’t think I could live with that.”

It would be true even if the jury was right: Many would say she’s proved she can live with quite a lot.

Flashback: Watch When Dems Scorned Impeaching a President “For Political Battles”

Westlake Legal Group BillClintonSideEye Flashback: Watch When Dems Scorned Impeaching a President “For Political Battles” Uncategorized Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats Congress Campaigns Bill Clinton

Democrats have been pushing impeachment pretty much since President Donald Trump was elected.

Of course, it really has nothing to do with anything he’s done and everything to do with trying to re-litigate the 2016 election.

How do we know this? Well, if it wasn’t already obvious, we could just take a look back at their words the last time the question of impeachment came up, during the administration of President Bill Clinton.

Let’s hear from some of them.

Here’s House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), telling us that they should not be trying to undo a national election and overriding the vote of the people.

How about Joe Biden? He reminds everyone that the President serves at the pleasure of the people, not the Congress.

Republicans may not have liked Bill Clinton, but there’s no match in modern times to the hatred and complete mania that Democrats feel over Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) warns about being paralyzed with fear of the President, so much so that you would violate privacy and the normal checks and balances.

Almost like you might do if you spied on your opponent’s campaign and tried to undermine it, even getting the FBI and the media in on the act in an unprecedented abuse of power.

Then there’s Mad Maxine, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). Now she’s been on a hate-filled rant even before Trump won in 2016. Everyone recalls how she even encouraged people to “get up in” the faces of Trump officials and “push back” wherever her minions might see those officials, which was then followed by a number of officials being harassed. Waters preached against impeachment and hatred, and not being oblivious to what the people say.

Perhaps the best was Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who warned about “impeaching over politics,” that Democrats might demand payback and try to impeach a Republican president if the GOP dared go after Clinton. You think?

But here Democrats are now, doing everything they can to push impeachment over politics, even knowing they will fail to convict in the Senate if they were to manage to impeach in the House. And even knowing that about 60% of America is against it, against them overturning the results of an election.

From NY Post:

That the Democrats have been talking impeachment since before Trump was even sworn in has made the voters a bit cynical about them. “I’m like, yeah, boy who cried wolf,” Donna Burgraff, a Tennessee independent who voted for Barack Obama and Donald Trump, told the Times. “You’ve got to have something big, and I haven’t seen something big.” One Times reporter said she spoke to six middle-of-the-road voters, and all of them vehemently opposed impeachment.

The Clinton impeachment saga lasted six months. If it takes six months this time, it’ll wrap up just seven months before the next election. Why bother? The voters will have their say soon enough. And impeachment will eat Washington. Nothing else will get done. This should matter to Democrats, because it looked as if they might get at least some of their gun-control ideas passed into law. Not anymore. Gun control has been pushed off the back burner and disappeared behind the stove.

If impeachment goes on for the next several months, Democrats will hardly be able to go to the voters and claim they delivered anything for them. Republicans in swing districts where gun control is popular might well say, “Look, we may have had a consensus to do something on this, but the Democrats decided to waste all of our time playing politics.”

And if all they get out of all this, Democratic voters will eat them alive and Trump will sail into office in 2020.

Forced Union Representation is Just as Unconstitutional as Being Forced to Pay Union Dues

Suppose you opened your own home-based business offering childcare in your community to your friends, acquaintances and new clients as word of mouth spreads.

The parents approach you, ask your hours and rates, what you provide versus what they bring or supplement for their child, and together you reach an agreement that works for both parties.

Now imagine finding out that because one of the families you’re serving receives low-income assistance to offset the cost of childcare so they can work outside the home, the state now requires you to accept union representation you don’t need or want.

Without your consent, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has been designated as your exclusive bargaining representative, able to dictate the terms of how you run your home-based childcare business — even though you’re not even a member of the union.

It seems outrageous and unfair, but this is exactly what’s going on for thousands of childcare providers across the State of Washington.

Katherine Miller is a licensed childcare provider in Washington, contracting with the state’s Department of Early Learning to provide services to children under one of the agency’s myriad assistance programs. She does not want to be a member of SEIU, nor does she want to be represented by the union or be associated with the union leaders’ political activities.

Washington state has a message for Katherine: Tough luck.

And she has a response for the state: See you in court.

Katherine is currently embroiled in a protected lawsuit with the state of Washington demanding it recognize her First Amendment rights of free speech and association to decline a relationship she doesn’t desire with a labor union whose values she doesn’t agree with.

Unfortunately, the federal courts — most recently the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — have been unjustly standing in her way by refusing to reasonably apply Supreme Court precedent.

In 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Harris v. Quinn that homecare providers whose clients are subsidized by Medicaid are not “public employees” and cannot be forced to accept union representation.

Miller – also an in-home care provider – has not been a member of SEIU since 2014, but because the Harris ruling has not been broadly applied beyond Medicaid-paid homecare providers, she’s still forced by Washington state law to accept SEIU representation in bargaining matters, and is correspondingly linked to the union’s political activities.

(Interestingly, Washington’s state government gave a half nod to the Harris decision, discontinuing the deduction of agency fees from in-home care providers such as Miller.)

With legal representation provided by the Freedom Foundation and the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation, Katherine Miller and another childcare provider, Cynthia Mentele, in 2015 filed a federal lawsuit against state officials and SEIU.

The district court rejected their argument in 2016, but while the plaintiffs awaited their appeal to the 9th Circuit, the Supreme Court issued its landmark ruling on forced government union participation, Janus v. AFSCME, in 2018.

In Janus, the court overturned a much-criticized 44-year-old ruling to affirm that government employees cannot be compelled, as a condition of employment, to either become a full union member or pay so-called “agency fees” to offset the cost of union bargaining on their behalf.

Forced dues, the justices agreed, is a violation of their First Amendment rights. Janus was the logical successor to Harris and opened the door to free all government employees from unwanted union intrusion in their lives.

Prior to Janus, Miller, Mentele and thousands of other home childcare providers could make a compelling logical case for why it violated their free speech rights to have a union speak for them against their wishes. Now, in the wake of Janus, the legal rationale is incontrovertible.

If compelling government employees to pay dues or fees to a union they don’t support is a violation of their Constitutional rights, how could any reasonable person — or judge — conclude that forcing them to accept representation from the very same union is any more defensible?

And yet that’s precisely what the 9th Circuit ruled. Ignoring both Harris v. Quinn and Janus v. AFSCME, the country’s most overturned circuit court held in February 2019 that exclusive representation does not impinge on associational freedoms.

Cynthia Mentele, eager to assert her own First Amendment rights, has since ceased accepting childcare subsidies so that she is no longer a “partial” state employee.

Meanwhile, Katherine Miller — still working with the Freedom Foundation and National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation — has appealed the 9th Circuit’s ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court, which is expected to announce soon whether it will hear the case.

Like Janus, Miller v. Inslee has the potential to free thousands of Americans across the country from government union tyranny once and for all.

Given that federal courts on the West Coast are thumbing their noses at the Supreme Court’s rulings in both Harris and Janus, a ruling by the court in Miller affirming the First Amendment rights of all in-home care providers to choose how they wish to be represented in their business is essential to provide consistency across the federal bench for all Americans, regardless of where they reside.

Ashley Varner is Vice President of Communications and Federal Affairs for the Freedom Foundation, a free-market organization committed to helping free government employees from forced unionization.

Trump Attacks! Calls Nadler, Schiff, and ‘AOC Plus 3’ a Bunch of ‘Democrat Savages’

Uncategorized Politics Jerrold Nadler International Affairs Impeachment of President Trump impeachment Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez adam schiff 2020

President Donald Trump points to cheering supporters as he leaves a campaign rally, Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019, in Manchester, N.H. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola)

 

 

First of all, if you missed it, ya gotta read “Woman’s Boyfriend Shoots Her In The Head, But She Forgets For Almost Two Months So They Keep Dating.”

Moving on:

On Saturday, the President had a few choice words for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, and House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff:

“Can you imagine if these Do Nothing Democrat Savages, people like Nadler, Schiff, AOC Plus 3, and many more, had a Republican Party who would have done to Obama what the Do Nothings are doing to me. Oh well, maybe next time!”

His post, of course, hits the Twitterwaves amid escalating chants of “Impeach!” (Also, “Impeach the Mother*****r!” — here)

Personally, I find the Democrats’ move rather odd:

Firstly, keeping the Ukraine issue in the news will drag Joe through the mud and give Elizabeth a chance to take the lead (which she already has, according to this poll).

And, as I noted previously:

“[A]s surely many would agree, Donald Trump against the mild-mannered Democrat in a no-holds-barred debate will be like Dracula fighting a mosquito — they may both technically be out for blood, but one will just step on the other.”

Secondly, what’s the idea here? America voted in Trump. Why keep trying to fight the election, aka the will of the people? Trump’s already more than half-way through the term, and you’re still trying to undo 2016?

If they’re right about America, and if they have superior ideas, he’ll be ousted in 2020.

It seems the only reason to try to kick him out the back door is if they believe he’ll win again.

And if they believe that, then they believe it’s what America wants. Why, then, would they attempt to cut off at the pass the very country they serve?

Over and over, they’ve said Trump is a threat to Democracy. Isn’t that what they’re being, if the above is the case?

And if they’re that sure he’ll be re-elected, why wouldn’t they try to change lever-pulling minds by convincing America liberal policies are superior?

Regardless, Nadler responded to the President’s jab:

Alexandria likened it to a remix:

As for the other mention in Trump’s Twittering, the Schiff riff is easy to understand; Fox reports:

On Thursday, Schiff pressed Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire on his decision to not to relay a whistleblower complaint about that call. Instead of sending the complaint to the inspector general, Maguire notified the White House.

But their quest appears destined to lead nowhere:

Trump, on Wednesday, released a rough transcript of his call with Zelensky. Neither that transcript nor the whistleblower report contained an explicity quid pro quo offer of foreign aid for an investigation into Biden. But some Democrats have suggested the transcript clearly showed Trump seeking some kind of exchange with the Ukrainian government.

Man, I sure do miss the days when Washington was about the debate of ideas.

Remember JFK? That guy had some notions.

It seems the only idea contemporary Democrats have to offer is “Trump is Lucifer.”

I don’t see that playing particular well.

Voters will get to the polls and realize there’s no one else and nothing else to vote for — Dems spent the last four years just calling Trump a poopie pants.

Then he’ll get clinch another 4 years, and they’ll be crapping themselves.

Welcome to Washington D.C., where the D.C. stands for Diaper Change.
