Joe Biden Ripped for “Sexist” Response to Question About Past Praise of VP Mike Pence

No matter how hard he tries to, Joe Biden can’t escape accusations of sexism.

The latest example comes from Iowa, where Biden campaigned over the weekend at an LGBTQ rights forum. The Hill reports:

Cedar Rapids Gazette columnist Lyz Lenz tweeted Friday night that Biden dryly called her a “real sweetheart” in private after the two shared an onstage exchange over Biden’s support for the Defense of Marriage Act and the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

“In 1994, you did vote for ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ and in 1996, you voted for the Defense of Marriage Act,” Lenz said. “You did vote to repeal both of those, but you have also praised Vice President Mike Pence as a ‘decent guy.’”

After the audience interjected with boos following the mention of Pence’s name, Biden responded, “You’re a lovely person.”

“Just asking the questions people want to know,” Lenz replied.

Lenz told USA Today she found Biden’s treatment of her “condescending”, saying that “it’s 2019, you shouldn’t be calling women sweethearts.”

TIME magazine editor at large Anand Giridharadas tweeted out the video clip, calling Biden’s answer “sexism with a smile”:

Rolling Stone writer Jamil Smith called Biden’s treatment of Lenz “Paleolithic”:

Other liberals weighed in and also equated Biden’s comments to “sexism”:

Look, I understand that it’s en vogue for liberals to pretend to be triggered by otherwise harmless comments (because it’s a great way to attract attention), but this is ridiculous. I’ve been subjected to much worse sexism just standing in the checkout line at the grocery store than Lenz was at this forum.

As Lenz noted, it is indeed 2019. Perhaps this year even more so than the last several, we are subjected to daily lectures about how strong and fierce women are and how nothing’s gonna bring them down. If this is the case, it’s time for feminist women and their liberal male enablers to stop reaching for the fainting couches everytime someone says something mildly offensive and grow up.

We have much bigger problems in this country than a presidential candidate calling women “sweethearts” and “lovely.”

Black New York Times Editor Repeatedly Ridicules Whites On Twitter; Is She A Racist?

 

Westlake Legal Group race-card-620x426 Black New York Times Editor Repeatedly Ridicules Whites On Twitter; Is She A Racist? racism Race progressives new york times magazine Jazmine Hughes Front Page Stories Featured Story comedy Allow Media Exception

Jazmine Hughes, who is black, is an associate editor at The New York Times Magazine. It should come as no surprise that Hughes is very involved with the “1691 Project,” the Times’ attempt to rewrite history. In 2018, she earned a spot on Forbes “30 Under 30” list of influential media figures. In an interview from that time, she described herself as a “champion of diverse storytelling.”

Breitbart’s Haris Alic discovered a series of tweets Hughes had written between February 2015 and May 2017, in which she ridicules whites and makes stereotypical anti-Semitic comments.

Here are some of them:

In 2015, shortly before joining The New York Times Magazine, Hughes wrote an article for The New Republic entitled “How Many White People Does It Take to Ruin a Good Joke? The gentrification of racial humor.” She tweeted:

She begins her TNR article by telling her readers, “I love making fun of white people. I do it every day.” She writes:

Racialized humor is an instrument that people of color can use to placate themselves in the face of the overwhelming reality: It’s just better to be Caucasian.

By making fun of white people, people of color can, in a small way, push back against stereotypes, opposing racial humor by inverting it.

This is how the party ends—with white people wanting in on the joke so badly that they create a separate category of ‘cool’ white people who mock their own whiteness in an effort at solidarity.

Hughes appears to be saying that, because she believes it’s “better” to be Caucasian, it’s okay for people of color to make fun of white people. It somehow relieves the burden they carry because they were born black or brown.

In her piece, she lists some “white people” jokes that blacks have told. She sees no problem with that. But she warns that a white person telling a white person joke has to be very careful.

All of which is to say that the teller of white-people jokes bears a special responsibility. White-people jokes don’t punch up; at best, they punch sideways, but usually, they punch down. This doesn’t mean that white people can never tell them. But I do believe that anyone who tells a white-person joke really has to understand what they’re doing. “Jokes have power to be tools to dismantle oppression, to prove racism, but also to reinforce racism and privilege,” says Keisha Zollar, an African American comedian with the Upright Citizens Brigade. “Is the comedian telling the joke aware of that power?”

Yikes, a white person who tells a white person joke is subject to scrutiny while a black person faces none.

As long as this attitude persists, racism will continue to a be problem in this country.

Watch: Climate Protesters Try to Justify Their Use of Climate Harming Products

Westlake Legal Group Capture-4-620x366 Watch: Climate Protesters Try to Justify Their Use of Climate Harming Products strike protest Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story environmentalists environment cult Climate Allow Media Exception

The Climate Strike on Friday brought with it some interesting characters, as these types of gatherings often do. Climate protests often look more like a pagan celebration than an actual march for anything.

Case in point.

But even the devout lovers of “mother Gaia” are just as guilty as the rest of us when it comes to polluting the planet. That’s what the Daily Caller’s Stephanie Hamill set out to prove when she went down to the climate strike to talk to participants about their use of plastics, gas-guzzling cars, and paper for signs.

Their primary justification for all of their environment harming things? As you can see in the video below…

…they’re victims. Surprise, surprise.

Falling back on the old excuse for wrongdoing, the climate protesters that were confronted all pretty much ran to the same excuse of blaming society for their use of all these things, not themselves. Given, nobody told them to waste paper to make protest signs, nor were they ordered to hop into cars and planes that use fossil fuels to power themselves, but it doesn’t matter.

To them, wasting all of those resources in order to get down to this climate protest that will change absolutely no one’s mind is the fault of everyone else who has crafted this society that they currently live in.

The funny thing is, it’s a pretty safe bet to believe that even if these people were confronted with having to truly change their lifestyle in order to make the planet a “better” place as they believe it, they likely wouldn’t.

On Friday, Sky News’s Alan Jones read a letter to the students who had left their classrooms in order to participate in the climate strikes. The letter was brutal, but it wasn’t wrong. In it, the letter noted that today’s climate activist students demand air conditioning, own cars that choke the roads, and constantly carry own electronic devices that require charging.

They also consume more products than any other generation before them and even advocate for artificial population growth through mass immigration which requires even more use of resources that harm the land.

The letter suggests the climate activists cut back on their lifestyle in order to save the planet, but as Jones read, that will never happen.

“But none of this will happen because, the piece says, you’re selfish, badly educated, virtue-signaling little turds inspired by the adults around you who crave a feeling of having a noble cause while they indulge themselves in western luxury and unprecedented quality of life. The piece ends by saying wake up, grow up, and shut up  until you’re sure of the facts before protesting.”

(WATCH: Australian Broadcaster Takes Down The Spoiled Climate Protesting Students In Epic Fashion)

I couldn’t agree more. These people don’t really care about the environment, they just want to be seen looking like they do to absolve themselves of the guilt they’re told they have.

Good News, NBC News Has Created a Way For You to Confess Your Climate Sins

Climate activists demonstrate in Paris, Saturday, Dec.12, 2015 during the COP21, the United Nations Climate Change Conference. Several environmental and human rights groups are planning protests around Paris to call attention to populations threatened by man-made global warming and urge an end to human use of oil, gas and coal. (AP Photo/Thibault Camus)

Remember how many on the right have been saying for years that climate change hysteria is a cult? Yeah, it’s a cult.

NBC News, a supposed objective news organization, has decided to create an entire web portal where you can go post and itemize your climate sins as part of a mass confessional. I guess this is part of some faux religious awakening, where you internalize what you are writing and realize you truly need a life change.

When you go to the sight, you can write your own confession or view others. They come in categories like transportation, plastics, and meat because apparently those are all really bad things.

Here’s a sampling.

“I’ve been using plastic golf tees from time to time. I will never use plastic golf tees again – Plastics”

You can almost feel the pathetic through the monitor. I’m not sure why plastic golf tees are bad, but this person seems to think he’s committed one of the seven deadly sins by using them. Actually, I’m not even sure what plastics have to do with global warming. Because of the use of petroleum in them? But given they don’t emit the carbon they contain, it’s a nearly irrelevant factor even if you are a hysteric about carbon emissions.

Here’s another one.

“I am a homebuilder and homes today are such energy hogs. I tour new home developments and see how developers look at profits first – Energy”

Let me translate that for you. Some twenty something Bernie supporter who’s never had a real job is making stuff up again. Homes are far, far more energy efficient today than those build decades ago. Everything from insulation, to windows, to HVAC units all work in far more energy efficient ways than your grandmother’s house built in the 1960s. A modern home’s electric bill is often less than half that of an older home of the same square footage.

But none of this is really about the climate. I mean, for some it is because they’ve been brainwashed, but for those at the top pushing the hysteria, it’s about control. We saw “climate strikes” last weekend and you saw just as much propaganda pushing for socialist takeovers of every aspect of human life as you did relating to global warming. Their efforts are only intensifying and they’ve got the help of a compliant liberal media.

Unfortunately, as is typical, you are seeing more and more on the right cave under the pressure. It’s just a matter of time before this quaz-religious ideology overtakes public policy because the left are just better at this than we are.

Elizabeth Warren Has Overtaken Biden In an Iowa Poll, Signaling Many Dems Really Have Fallen to Radicalism

Rising disagreement among congressional Democrats over whether to pursue impeachment of President Donald Trump has had little effect on the party’s presidential candidates, who mostly are avoiding calls to start such an inquiry. (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty, File)

Every time I think the Democrats have reached rock bottom, they ask me for a shovel.

Senator Elizabeth Warren, the woman who is just shy of being AOC in terms of radicalism, is now leading the Democrat party, at least according to the Iowa Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom poll that was recently taken. Joe Biden, the race’s former leader, has now taken second place.

Don’t get me wrong, Biden was no moderate himself. He was just billed that way. Embracing the Green New Deal, one of the most socialistic laws to see the light of an American day, is good enough to throw him into the radical pile with the rest. However, most Americans aren’t going to busy themselves delving too deep into a candidate. If the media says he’s a more moderate choice, then that’s where they’ll head.

With that said, it looks like Democrats in Iowa are cool with radicalism.

As the Daily Wire reported on Monday, the poll shows Warren has squeaked by as both the favored candidate for first and second choice:

The poll, which surveyed 602 “likely Democratic caucusgoers” and was conducted between September 14-18, asked: “Which one of the following Democrats would be your first choice for president?” The respondents stated both their first and second choices.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren came out on top with 22% of respondents selecting her as their first choice, and 20% as their second choice.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, long considered the front-runner of the Democratic race, came in second, with 20% of respondents selecting him as their first choice, and only 10% as their second choice.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) came in a distant third place, with just 11% selecting him as their first choice, and 10% as their second.

The Daily Wire also pointed out that while Warren leads in Iowa, Biden is still the overall leader throughout the rest of the nation with a 30.2 percent lead to Warren’s 19.8. That’s a big gap, but there’s still a lot of football left to play.

Biden might be the leader, but looking at his performance while on the campaign trail has me wondering if he’ll hold onto it for much longer. Late last month, polls showed Biden’s numbers were in free fall and that it was only a matter of time before he was replaced with someone else at the top.

The gaffe tap seems to be open to full and every day brings a new gaffe. What’s more, the Ukranian scandal hasn’t been good for his image either. Biden is becoming increasingly complicated for the left to support, and it’s only a matter of time before that complication becomes a rejection.

The Iowa poll might be an outlier, but I think it’s the pebble that starts the avalanche.

It’s not all bad, however. Warren will bring complications all her own if and when she takes over as leader of the 2020 pack. For one, the left will have to rewrite its book of outrage in order to make Warren lying about her Native American heritage okay, which will certainly be hammered by Trump and the Republicans going forward.

She also has the issue of being a radical who embraces socialistic programs, which Americans just arent’ that into. This shift of Democrats to the radical left will likely turn many Americans off, and bring them into the arms of one Donald J. Trump.

Donald Trump Definitely Wants Impeachment Proceedings To Begin Soon

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Thumb-620x361 Donald Trump Definitely Wants Impeachment Proceedings To Begin Soon Ukraine republicans President Joe Biden impeachment impeach Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Allow Media Exception 2020

President Donald Trump threw gasoline onto the smoldering fire of the Ukraine call controversy when he admitted that he did, in fact, discuss Joe Biden with the nation in a phone call.

As expected, that led us to a weekend of media reports on Democrats calling for impeachment and Adam Schiff saying it’s probably the best recourse at this point. Search “Trump Ukraine” on Twitter, and you’d be hard-pressed to find many tweets that don’t also use the word “impeach” in some form.

Truth be told, I held off on caring about this story because it was another case of “Too Good To Be True.” It fits exactly into what people perceive of Trump, and pretty much every story that has done so has ended up refuted at least in part and always ended up having an entirely different context than originally portrayed. With the revelation that the whistleblower wasn’t actually a witness to the phone call and other sources in the room saying the story isn’t what it was played up to be, and that Joe Biden did something similar, the story did indeed end up changing a bit in both context and impact.

That isn’t going to stop the Democrats, however, and it’s becoming obvious that Trump doesn’t want them to stop. Trump currently can’t run on his successful economy because it may be on the verge of weakening, and there aren’t many more accomplishments he can tout because his most vocal promises outside of tax reform and regulatory rollout haven’t come true.

Biden, his leading opponent ahead of 2020, has an appeal to moderate voters and could very well become a major threat to Trump in the general election. However, as more Democrats drop out, Elizabeth Warren could overtake Biden, presenting Trump with a far-left opponent. That’s the scenario Trump wants, and it’s the scenario he’s hoping to get.

I’ll be the first to admit I don’t think Trump is the three dimensional chess player his supporters like to believe he is, but there comes a time (as I pointed out a while back) that you have to stop assuming Trump is just aimlessly firing his talking points and tactics and actually working a larger strategy. I think that this could be one of the times we need to assume Trump wants what’s happening right now.

Nancy Pelosi knows full-well what the Democrats want. She knows she won’t be able to hold off on impeachment altogether. She also knows that impeachment over anything remotely close to a nothing burger story will kill her party in 2020. Pelosi does not want to impeach unless there is a clear-cut offense that the facts support an impeachment over.

Trump will continue to goad the Democrats into shooting for impeachment, saying just enough to make them continue to froth and roil and eventually force the party’s leadership to pull the trigger. If that happens, the 2020 election will become an election over impeachment and not the issues. Trump gets his enemy and the Democrats think they get a winning issue.

Conservative activist Scott Presler continued to deliver on his pledge to clean up Democrat-led cities across the country. He tackled his biggest project yet on Saturday. Wearing hazmat suits, he and a group of 200 volunteers spent nine hours removing 50 tons of garbage from an L.A. homeless camp. The photographs show a remarkable transformation.

In the video below, Presler shows what the camp looked like before they went to work.

Nine hours later, the results speak for themselves.

Imagine if the left spent less time crusading for the rights of migrants crossing into the U.S. illegally and more time solving the problems of American citizens requiring assistance.

It’s not hard. Presler shows us what it takes. Why have the leaders of these largely Democrat controlled cities ignored the problem for so long and allowed conditions to deteriorate to such hazardous levels? There are common sense solutions to these problems if liberals would stop crying about conditions at the border and act.

As Presler says, #StopTalkingStartDoing.

Presley told reporters, “The highlight of the day was when a homeless woman said to me, ‘Thank you for keeping your promise.’”

His next project will be a third cleanup in Baltimore scheduled for October 5th.

SHOCKER. Adam Schiff Says the Impeachment He’s Been Working For May Be Necessary

Adam Schiff Says the Impeachment He’s Been Working For May Be Necessary Ukraine State of the Union Politics Nancy Pelosi Joe Biden Jake Tapper impeachment Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Congress CNN Allow Media Exception adam schiff

FILE- In this Feb. 5, 2018, file photo, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., ranking member of the House Committee on Intelligence, pauses while speaking during a media availability after a closed-door meeting of the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington.

(AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)

Pencil neck congressman Adam Schiff was on Jake Tapper’s State of the Union show today and it was more with sadness than anger that he announced that the impeachment that he’s been trying to orchestrate for nearly a year might actually be necessary now.

“I have been very reluctant to go down the path of impeachment. . . . This would be an extraordinary remedy of last resort, not first resort,” Schiff said. “But if the President is essentially withholding military aid at the same time that he is trying to browbeat a foreign leader into doing something illicit that is providing dirt on his opponent during a presidential campaign, then that may be the only remedy that is coequal to the evil that that conduct represents.”

He later added: “We very well may have crossed the Rubicon here.”

Schiff’s comments are particularly striking given his previous unwillingness to call for impeachment. He came to Congress about 20 years ago in part because his predecessor, former Republican congressman James E. Rogan, voted to impeach President Bill Clinton. Schiff defeated him.

Schiff is also a close ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who has been an impeachment skeptic and put the House on a path of turning to the courts to enforce subpoenas that the administration has ignored.

Yet, on Sunday, Schiff appeared to suggest Pelosi’s impulse to look to the courts would not do in this instance. The inspector general of the intelligence community has deemed the whistleblower allegation to be “urgent,” which, under law, should have triggered the administration to turn it over to Congress.

The administration refused.

“We cannot afford to play rope-a-dope in the court for weeks or months on end,” he said. “We need an answer. If there’s a fire burning, it needs to be put out. And that’s why we’re going to have to look at every remedy. . . . We’re going to have to consider impeachment, as well, as remedy here.”

One of the clown acts being perpetrated by the Washington Post and the Schiff fluffers in the media is the idea that Schiff is being dragged ever so reluctantly towards impeachment. This is how the Post describes it.

Here’s Schiff on Sunday on CNN when asked where he stands now: “Certainly, the administration and the president seem to be doing everything they can, everything they can to push us into an impeachment. And we may get there. We may get there.”

Both times, Schiff stressed he’s not willing to support impeachment. But earlier this month, impeachment seemed distant to Schiff, who emphasized that Democrats have more important things to worry about, such as showing they can govern. It was an answer that seemed designed to shut down impeachment talks without closing the door entirely to them — a tightrope Pelosi is also balancing on.

This is from LawfareBlog where the usually just write what James Comey tells them to and get drunk on Qatar’s cash:

Hennessey got dragged a bit here and started screeching

Everyone knows what the game is. Adam Schiff took over his committee determined to engineer the impeachment of President Trump. You really have to be a special kind of stupid not to realize that. Schiff is from California and there impeachment is a non-issue. My guess is that he’s got his sights set on a senate seat and Nancy Pelosi can go hang herself for all he cares. The Democrats who entered Congress from Red and Purple districts have to contend with the fact that most of the country do not want impeachment and, unlike Schiff, Pelosi doesn’t want to put freshmen congressmen in a difficult position in a presidential election year.

Trump is clearly goading Schiff, partially from enjoyment and partially to cause discord in House Democrat leadership. From what we know about the Ukraine nonsense it is doubtful that Trump did anything wrong and it is very doubtful that either Fat Jerry Nadler or Nancy Pelosi are going to pull the trigger on a full-blown impeachment hearing when the malfeasance and corruption of the leading Democrat presidential candidate will become part of the issue.

President Trump joined India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a well-attended rally held at Houston’s NRG Stadium on Sunday. Over 50,000 Indian-Americans attended the “Howdy, Modi!” which was sponsored by the Texas India Forum.

Trump and Modi had warm words for each other. Modi told the crowd of Trump’s “strong resolve to Make America Great Again.”

He needs no introduction. His name is familiar to every person on the planet. His name comes up in every conversation in the world on global politics. He was a household name and very popular even before he occupied the highest office in this great country.

You introduced me to your family in 2017 and today I have the honor to introduce you to my family. Over a billion Indians and people of Indian heritage around the globe.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, my friend, a friend of India, a great American president, Mr. Donald Trump.

Trump was equally kind in his remarks. He praised Modi for winning such a decisive victory noting that 600,000 million votes had been cast.

Trump said, “Prime Minister Modi and I have come to Houston to celebrate everything that unites America and India, our shared dreams and bright futures. You enrich our culture, you uphold our values, you uplift our communities and you’re truly proud to be American and we are proud to have you as Americans. We thank you, we love you and I want you to know my administration is fighting for you each and every day.”

The highlight of the event for Trump came when he told the crowd, “We stand proudly in the defense of liberty and we are committed to protecting innocent civilians from the threat of radical Islamic terrorism.”

And 50,000 Indian-Americans gave the President a standing ovation. And he loved it.

Pompeo’s remarks will be the first chance for lawmakers and the public to hear directly from the former Kansas congressman about his approach to diplomacy and the role of the State Department, should he be confirmed to lead it.

Rand Paul, R-Ky., The Senate Foreign Relations Committee holds Pompeo’s confirmation hearing Thursday.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on ABC’s This Week program and naturally the whole Ukraine kerfuffle was discussed. Pompeo said some expected stuff. No, we’re not on the brink of war with Iran. No, we’re very unlikely to release the transcript of President Trump’s call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. No, Pompeo doesn’t see this a a particularly big deal.

But then there was this

POMPEO: I think I saw a statement from the Ukrainian foreign minister yesterday, said there was no pressure applied in the course of the conversation. I do think — I do think, if Vice President Biden behaved inappropriately, if he was protecting his son and intervened with the Ukrainian leadership in a way that was corrupt, I do think we need to get to the bottom of that, Martha. And I — I hope that we will. I hope that, if Vice President Biden engaged in behavior that was inappropriate, I hope the American people will come to learn that. America can’t have…

RADDATZ: We’ve seen no evidence of that yet. But I want to go back to the question.

POMPEO: America cannot have our elections interfered with. America cannot have our elections interfered with. And if — if that’s what took place there, if there was that kind of activity engaged in by Vice President Biden, we need to know.

Two interesting points here.

First, Pompeo is not dismissing out of hand the stench of corruption than hangs over Joe Biden links to his ne’er do well kid getting a seat on the board of directors of a Ukrainian gas company run by one of their economic oligarchs and to Biden’s admitted interference in Ukraine’s judicial process to his son’s benefit. Second, he’s clearly tying Biden’s actions in relation to Ukraine to the efforts by the Obama administration…or at least the faction that was hoping to ride Mrs. Clinton’s more-than-ample-acres-wide coattails to continued power….to aid the Clinton campaign. (See Elizabeth Vaughn’s The Real Foreign Collusion Occurred Between Pro-Clinton Ukrainians And The DNC and U.S. Embassy Pressured Ukrainian Officials To End Investigation Of Soros Group In 2016.) The comment, “America cannot have our elections interfered with. And if — if that’s what took place there, if there was that kind of activity engaged in by Vice President Biden, we need to know,” nearly caused Martha Raddatz to stroke out.

Unlike Trump, Pompeo is not a bomb-thrower. I have to suspect that he has some reason to throw campaign interference into the mix other than mere amusement. Given the role the State Department played in moving the Steele Dossier into the proper channels, I have little doubt that there is more on that angle just waiting to be revealed.
