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.”

If You Want to Know How Insane Environmentalists Have Gotten, this Funeral Is a Good Gauge

Westlake Legal Group Capture-5-620x347 If You Want to Know How Insane Environmentalists Have Gotten, this Funeral Is a Good Gauge Switzerland religion Politics melting growing glaciers Glacier funeral Front Page Stories environmentalism environment Climate Allow Media Exception

Environmentalism is pretty wacky. Watching any march, strike, or event with “mother Gaia” at the center of everyone’s concern can really bring out the wackos and what is billed as a march to raise awareness about the left’s irrational fear of climate change — I think we’re all pretty aware at this point — usually ends up being a modern-day pagan gathering.

It has also, apparently, inspired funerals. We’ve seen it before, such as the famous video of environmentalists losing it over a fallen tree.

But according to CNN, a funeral was recently held in Switzerland for a glacier called Pizol, which has now completely melted. The environmental activists hiked to the top of a mountain to where Pizol was and held the funeral while dressed in black clothing and paying their respects to the melted water:

Around 250 people gathered Sunday to hike up to the glacier, where a local priest gave a speech to commemorate the retreating ice, said Alessandra Degiacomi, coordinator of the Swiss Association for Climate Protection and organizer of the funeral march.

“Pizol glacier has disappeared. There will be some snow left, but the glacier is no more,” Huss told CNN.

“There are several small pieces of ice lying around, but these pieces are increasingly being covered by rock debris from the mountain. But given what is left of it, we will no longer term it a glacier in scientific terms,” Huss added.

“80% of the glaciers in Switzerland are more or less the same size as Pizol,” Degiacomi told CNN.
“If Pizol goes, this is a warning sign. This is what is going to happen if we don’t change something about our behavior,” she added.

The melting of Pizol may seem like a clear indicator that climate change is severely damaging the environment as they say, but as climate alarmists dress in black and hold funerals for the natural transition of states of matter, a glacier in Greenland is actually growing.

Jakobshavn, which sits on Greenland’s west coast, has been growing thicker thanks to the North Atlantic Oscillation climate pattern which switches from warm to cold water every 20 years according to space.com. Climateers say that this is temporary because the oceans are warming, but Jakobshavn isn’t the only growing glacier. The two major glaciers at Glacier National Park (GNP) have been growing since 2010.

The GNP even had to quietly toss out signs they had put up that claimed the glaciers would be gone by 2020.

This funeral in Switzerland appears to be one more bit of performance art meant to scare us into believing the most ridiculous claims about climate change. While it is good to look out for the health of our environment and adhere to a solid form of conservationism where possible, these people turn it into a cult where science gets skewed and apocalyptic threats are made if we don’t adhere to their governmental standards right away.

The church of climate change isn’t just a weird pagan religion, it’s a vote driver.

Watch MSNBC Discuss Trump’s Coming Execution

Westlake Legal Group clown-flckr-620x463 Watch MSNBC Discuss Trump’s Coming Execution treason Politics MSNBC Morning Joe Front Page Stories Front Page execution donald trump democrats bill weld

This seems sane.

As I wrote this past weekend, that Trump-Ukraine scandal exploded into a million pieces after about twelve hours of hysteria. In the end, there was no threat, no quid pro quo, and no real meat to the story. The issue for many in the media and on the left though is that they had invested everything into this. They truly felt this was finally it and that Trump would be taken down for using foreign aid money to force an investigation of Joe Biden. That didn’t happen and they were again left chasing the wind, suckers of fake news once more.

The problem with being so emotionally invested in tall this is that it’s hard to let go. And instead of just admitting their mistake, we end up with lunacy like this from MSNBC.

If you watch the video, no one pushes back. No brings levity to the conversation. No one suggests that because Trump didn’t actually do anything wrong, perhaps riffing on his coming execution is a bit much. Instead, they entertain the dialogue because these people have lost their minds.

Remember, these are your intellectual and moral betters. Never mind that these people clearly have no idea what the definition of treason is. Heck, I’m old enough to remember when the media lost their minds and did a million fact-checks when Trump misused the term. When it’s to target Trump though? All’s fair in the world of orange man bad.

You can not commit “treason” and be punished with death by asking an ally to investigate corruption. None of the elements needed are actually there. We aren’t at war with Ukraine. Trump didn’t subvert the U.S. government. Joe Biden isn’t even a part of the government.

All of this is incredibly stupid and makes no sense. It’s also incredibly hypocritical. These are the same people who lauded the Obama administration targeting Trump in 2016 with our intelligence apparatus and with the help of foreign governments. Now they stand aghast at Trump asking Ukraine to not let Biden off the hook for something he admitted on tape? Give me a break.

5G Wireless Makes Government Broadband Even Dumber and More Dishonest Policy

Westlake Legal Group smartphones-620x345 5G Wireless Makes Government Broadband Even Dumber and More Dishonest Policy wireless Wired Web Search washington D.C. Technology technolgy Section 230 satellite progressives Privacy Politics Policy News network neutrality Net Neutrality law Internet of Things Internet Government Google Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Economy China California Business & Economy 5g 4G

One of the very MANY problems with government regulating the private sector – is it immediately halts or severely retards private sector progress.

For the regulations to be even remotely pertinent – the private sector must be forced to remain exactly as it is.  So as to allow titanically slow government – to keep up with the quicksilver private sector.

Because when the private sector evolves and changes – and the private sector ALWAYS evolves and changes – the government is left in the dust.

So one of the points of government regulation – is freezing in amber the private sector.  So as to maintain some semblance of government relevance.

When we manage to fend off really stupid regulation – the private sector almost always, quite rapidly, demonstrates how unnecessary and stupid the regulation was and is.

To wit:

We are still trying – with a whip and a chair – to fend off the Left’s attempts to impose Network Neutrality upon the Internet.

The Left – is rigidly insistent upon it.

Democrat Censured for Voting with Trump 19% of the Time. Bipartisanship Is Dead:

“(Senator Kyrsten Sinema)…opposes the Democrats’ ‘net neutrality’ internet scheme.”

Why has the Left been so screechingly adamant?

Because they know what we know:

The private sector is today on the verge of rendering Net Neutrality even dumber and more dishonest than it was yesterday.

(Fifth Generation) 5G Wireless Makes Net Neutrality Even Dumber Policy:

“Think about this: 4G wireless – is already within shouting distance of wired broadband.

The most data-intensive thing to currently do online – is stream video.  And just about everyone in America can currently, seamlessly stream video – on their wireless devices.

“That’s impressive.

“5G wireless is going to blow the doors off of 4G wireless – and wired broadband.

“Thank you yet again, Private Sector.  For yet again delivering exponential increases in speed and quality.  Yet again – totally bereft of Net Neutrality regulations.”

Another very dumb government idea – is government getting into the Internet Service Provider (ISP) business.

Leftists want government – which regulates private sector ISPs – to also compete with private sector ISPs.

Fake Indian Elizabeth Warren – Has A Lot Of Really Terrible Ideas:

“Yet another really terrible idea from the Idea Candidate?

“‘Universal Broadband? Warren Has a Plan for That’

“Of course she does.  She even put quill to parchment – to detail her Idea!-Plan! for the Washington Post….

“‘Elizabeth Warren: Here’s How We Get Broadband Internet to Rural America’

“(What did Leftists use to write before quill and parchment?  Computers.)”

Government competing with the private sector – is always a terrible idea:

“(It) is like having a baseball umpire…also pitch for the opposing team.

“You have the guy calling balls and strikes – calling balls and strikes for himself.

“Guess how all judgement calls going forward will go?”

The alleged reason for governments pretending to be the private sector – is a lack of ubiquitous Internet connection.

Rural areas are obviously tougher – and a lot more expensive – to reach with…everything.  Including tech.  And the US – is a very large place.

But even the connection computations are based upon a lie:

“‘The number of Americans lacking access to a terrestrial fixed broadband connection meeting the FCC’s benchmark of at least 25 Mbps/3 Mbps has dropped from 26.1 million Americans at the end of 2016 to 21.3 million Americans at the end of 2017, a decrease of more than 18%.’

“The 21.3 million number – was from 2017.  And that number – is down 18% from just one year prior.

“(T)he (Federal Communications Commission) FCC still bizarrely only counts a hardline (terrestrial fixed) Internet connection as a connection.  Meaning buried cables criss-crossing America – all the way into your abode.

“But nearly everyone in America has a 4G (Fourth Generation) wireless smartphone.  On which you can seamlessly stream High Definition (HD) video – the most bandwidth intensive thing currently to do on the Internet.  (And we’re but a few years away from exponentially-faster-5G).

“And then there is Satellite Internet – for the remaining very few who are bereft of both wired and cellular wireless.

“And those 25mbs (download) and 3Mbs (upload) speeds that serve as the FCC minimum?

“They are WAY faster than 98+% of Americans currently need.

“The Truth About Faster Internet: It’s Not Worth It:

“‘Typical U.S. households don’t use most of their bandwidth while streaming and get marginal gains from upgrading speeds.’”

The FCC and the Left only counting hardline Internet connections?  Is like the Barack Obama Administration counting illegal aliens turned around at the border as “deportations.”  (Which the Obama Administration very dishonestly did.)

It is woefully mis-representative of what is actually happening.

If you have a 4G wireless smartphone – you are by any reasonable definition connected to the Internet.

And that is…just about everyone.

And the 5G wireless network – is going to blow the doors off of even the existing, massive private sector success.

And thereby blow an even larger hole in the Left’s demands for government Internet.

How 5G Will Solve Rural Broadband:

“Starting with advanced versions of 4G LTE and then continuing with 5G, wireless technologies will not only displace many wireline endpoints in dense population areas, but also in low population density areas, including rural areas….

“Rural wireless throughput rates are already competitive, with 25 Mbps a typical downlink throughput rate offered by WISPs such as Rise Broadband, and technology roadmaps showing rates as high as 200 Mbps in the near future….

“The differences between rural versus urban deployments, however, are cell sizes and radio frequencies used. The cost advantage of wireless connections is overwhelming.

“A spokesperson for the Wireless ISP Association (WISPA) estimates that a wireless connection to a rural endpoint costs one-fifth to one-tenth of a wireline connection….

“A number of factors are converging in 5G to create critical mass for broadband transformation:

“Lower costs through global mass commoditization of cellular technology, ability to use spectrum all the way from UHF at 600 GHz to mmWave at 100 GHz, shared spectrum about to come online in Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), massive MIMO that extends range and capacity, and advanced interference mitigation techniques.”

Translation from Tech-to-English:

The Left’s idea to get into the government into the broadband business – is currently very stupid and dishonest.

Thanks to the private sector.

And the Left’s idea to get the government into the broadband business – is about to get exponentially stupider and more dishonest.

Thanks to the private sector.

So we say:

“Thanks yet again, private sector.”

And we say:

“For the love of God – leave us alone, government.”

Texas Turning Blue: Why The GOP Is Losing The Lone Star State

=========
=========
Promoted from the diaries by streiff. Promotion does not imply endorsement.
=========
=========

If the Republican Party doesn’t take drastic action, it will lose Texas to the Democratic Party faster than a sneeze through a screen door. The GOP has held the Lone Star State for decades, but there have been signs that their reign is coming to an end.

During last year’s midterm elections, Texans saw how close the Democrats are to becoming a dominant force in their politics. Indeed, many were completely convinced that Beto O’ Rourke would become the state’s next senator despite his blatant cultural appropriation. But now, there are more indicators that Texas might soon be saying “happy trails” to the GOP.

The Christian Science Monitor speculates on the possibility of a Democratic takeover of Texas. While acknowledging that “no Democrat won statewide in 2018,” The Monitor’s Henry Gass pointed to progressive performances in down-ballot races, explaining that the party “had its best election in decades.”

Another factor in this equation is the recent trend of congressional Republicans deciding against pursuing reelection. This phenomenon, which has been given the name “Texodus,” seems to be a political omen bearing an urgent warning to the GOP. The five Republican members of Congress who are retiring represent districts that are becoming increasingly blue, and the Democrats are still pushing forward.

At the Monitor Breakfast, Texas Senator Ted Cruz explained the reasons for the changing political climate. “Suburban voters – in particular suburban women – have been moving left,” he said. “That’s turning states with big suburban populations – states like Texas, states like Georgia, states like Arizona – much more purple.”

Cruz also delved into the reasons the left has become energized in Texas. “The far left is pissed off, they hate the president and that is a powerful motivator,” he remarked. “If the left shows up in massive numbers and everybody else doesn’t that’s how we end up with an incredibly damaging election.”

Several factors explain why Texas politics might be at the start of a dramatic transformation. Demographics certainly play a role, of course. Legal and illegal immigration are both changing the ethnic makeup of the Lone Star State. An increasing number of immigrants enter the state each year. While this certainly has an impact, it does not fully explain the GOP’s loosening grasp on Texas. Most of these individuals cannot vote, and while voter fraud certainly occurs, there exists no concrete evidence that it is swinging elections.

It is also essential to consider that Texas, like the rest of the nation, is quite polarized when it comes to President Donald Trump. According to The Christian Science Monitor, about 45% of registered voters approve of the president while 50% do not.

A recent University of Texas survey revealed that Trump’s numbers were lower than most of the Democratic candidates vying for the nomination. This study lends some credibility to Sen. Cruz’s assertion that Trump is not winning over suburban mothers.

Nancy Bocskor, director of the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy at the Texas Woman’s University, told The Christian Science Monitor she blamed Trump’s rhetoric for his failure to win over suburban moms. She said his behavior “trumps anything he’s doing with the economy for many suburban women.”

Given the shifting demographics, it is clear that the Republican Party in Texas must make some key changes to its platform if it plans to prevent the Democrats from dominating the state’s political machine.

The GOP needs to expand its focus and begin courting Hispanic and black voters. The only way to prevent the Democratic takeover is to chip away at their core voting blocs. Fortunately for the GOP, Florida’s senatorial and gubernatorial elections last year provide something of a blueprint for success.

When Rick Scott ran for Senate, he realized he had to win over a significant percentage of Hispanic voters. David Custin, head of DRC Consulting, told The Hill that “Scott showed how you’re supposed to campaign in Spanish in Florida.” He explained that Scott “made the effort and put in the financial commitment and the blood, sweat and tears.”

This strategy also paid off for Governor Ron DeSantis, who won 44% of Hispanic voters. This was a 13% increase over Scott’s run for the office in 2014. The fact that his running mate was Cuban-American businesswoman Jeanette Nuñez didn’t hurt his odds either.

As for women voters? Well, there isn’t much that can be done in that regard. President Trump is not likely to give up his tweeting habit anytime soon, and his Twitter feuds will continue to push away suburban women. But perhaps the Republican Party can figure out how to take the focus off Trump and emphasize their successful policies.

Texas has long been essential for the Republican Party when it comes to winning presidential elections. The state’s electoral votes have helped the GOP rival those of coastal states which typically favor Democratic candidates. Losing the Lone Star State would strike a death blow to the GOP’s ability to win the presidency in future elections. For this reason, it is crucial that the party reimagine its strategy. Otherwise, they might not win another presidential election. As Ted Cruz told The Christian Science Monitor, “If we lose Texas, it’s game over.”

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.
