AOC Gets Dunked After Deleting, Then Reposting Tweet Deeming NY Times Smear Against Brett Kavanaugh “Credible”

In the immediate aftermath of the “report” from the New York Times over the weekend about an old-turned-new sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a number of high-profile Democratic politicians and candidates for president weighed in and demanded his impeachment.

This in spite of the fact that the correction the paper issued hours after they were first alerted to it by conservative new media noted that the alleged victim does not even recall the alleged incident.

This is also in spite of the fact that the person who made the allegation originally is a Clinton-era liberal lawyer who has a vested interest in destroying Kavanaugh (which naturally calls into question the lawyer’s motivations):

We won’t even dwell on the fact that it was a liberal lawyer—one who happened to have been pitted against Kavanaugh during the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings—who opportunistically claims to have recalled this 35-year-old incident and reported it to the FBI.

As we all know, facts don’t care about your feelings, but Democrats don’t care about the facts. So the beat rolled on well into Monday with more Democrats lining up to board the “Impeach Kavanaugh” train, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY).

Apparently AOC didn’t want to waste the opportunity to insert herself into the debate, and she did so by posting a video clip of her during her 2018 campaign trashing highly educated “rich” men like Kavanaugh who she claimed “believed” they could get away with sexual assault.

While it’s not odd for Ocasio-Cortez to go the narcissistic route by making herself a focal point of any debate, what was odd about her tweets this morning about Kavanaugh is that she initially deleted the first one:

11 minutes after jtLOL noted she had deleted her original tweet, AOC reposted an identical one:

She followed up with another one from that same speech, because AOC has rarely seen a video of herself that she didn’t like.

But why did she delete her first tweet initially? This explanation from Free Beacon’s Alex Griswold is the only one that makes sense:

Yep. Might as well roll with it. Gotta get those RTSs, likes, and all the media attention that goes along with them.

In any event, no matter the reason for deleting and reposting, Ocasio-Cortez got dunked in the comments:

I want to believe that. I really do.

Cartel Boat Carrying 1/4 Ton of Marijuana Abandoned on Malibu Beach

A day at the beach is usually synonymous with relaxation, sun, and fun. Sure, (most) people slather on sunblock to avoid sunburn and watch out for rip tides, but in general beachgoers are able to leave the issues of daily life behind.

Not in Southern California, where one must be on the lookout for hypodermic needles, strung-out (and possibly deceased) homeless people, high fecal bacteria counts in the water, and drug cartel-owned panga boats filled with drums of gasoline and marijuana washing ashore.

Yes, you read that correctly. People out for a peaceful early-morning stroll down the beach in Malibu encountered a beached panga boat carrying more than a quarter of a ton of marijuana, as reported by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.

[A]t approximately 6:15 AM, sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the area of PCH and Deer Creek Road regarding a beached vessel. Upon arrival, deputies discovered a beached vessel and quickly determined it was a narcotics smuggling vessel commonly referred to as panga boats. The 35 foot panga boat was unoccupied and beached using a make shift wrought iron anchor.

During the search of the panga, deputies found 41 bales containing marijuana, which had a combined weight of 577 pounds.

In addition to the marijuana, deputies located 37 large containers filled with approximately 605 gallons of gasoline. The gas containers were located inside the panga, floating in the water and some were on the beach.

The news release explicitly pointed the finger at “Mexico based narcotics smugglers” who “work closely with associates in the Unites States to transport their narcotics.”

This isn’t an isolated occurrence.

Last month, 43 bales of marijuana, worth about $1 million, were found floating in the ocean near Catalina Island.

Between 2011 and 2016,  234 of 309 detected drug smuggling operations involving panga boats and recreational vessels in the country were intercepted in California, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office.

That made up 76% of all maritime drug smuggling busts in the country.

The boat was beached just south of Point Mugu/Naval Base Ventura County, where the recovery operation for the Catalina boat fire was centered. The red dot on the map shows where the boat was found; the Channel Islands are just to the west.

Something tells me that an extra heavy US Coast Guard presence throughout the entire Channel Islands area could have made navigating the waters too risky for the drug dealers…but that’s just me.

The BBC Releases a Lesson Plan for 9-Year-Olds: There Are More Than 100 Genders. Disagree and Go to Jail

Westlake Legal Group sisters-931151_1280-620x413 The BBC Releases a Lesson Plan for 9-Year-Olds: There Are More Than 100 Genders. Disagree and Go to Jail Uncategorized transgender The Sexes Sexuality sexual identity Public Education LGBT innocence Government Gender Issues gender identity Front Page Stories Featured Story Culture children BBC Allow Media Exception

 

 

Okay, boys and girls. And goys. and birls. And…a whole buncha stuff.

Here’s some news.

The BBC has released a collection of educational videos for tykes between 9 and 12 years old. As per the instructionals, there are not 2, not 3 not 10, but more than 100 “gender identities.”

Holy Toledo.

That’s a whole lot of variations on the penis and vagina; how could anyone keep up? I can’t even remember the Waffle House’s options for hash browns.

If you’re asking similar questions, you’re just slow: According to the videos, folks who aren’t adjusted to the 100+ options “just don’t know any better yet.”

Furthermore, those dinosaurs — you dinosaurs — could go to jail.

In one installment titled “Understanding Sexual and Gender Identities,” kids are informed that gender is whatever “you are inside.”

And off we go:

“There are so many gender identities. So we know we’ve got male and female, but there are over 100 — if not more — gender identities now.

“You’ve got some people who might call themselves gender queer,” the series pointes out, “who are just like, ‘I don’t really want to be anything in particular; I’m just going to be me.’”

The Daily Wire describes other content:

The video includes Leo Lardie, a transgender activist born female but who now identifies as male, who tells the children about her transition — including some talk about her own genitalia. She also tells the children that the only way to happiness for her was to be “true about who I was, and let other people in on this.”

Elsewhere in the series, called “The Big Talk,” a teacher tells children that they can be jailed if they are found to be “disrespecting or being hateful to people because of a difference that person perceives.”

One thing that’s cool about gender is that you don’t even have to be one of the 100+ choices. As the program explains, if you prefer — just like at Burger King — you can get the combo deal:

“So we know that some people might feel like they are two different genders, so people might think they’re bi-gender.”

Bi-gender.

Bye, gender.

With so many options, it seems that, ultimately, “gender” means nothing at all.

Ban on Eating Dogs and Cats Blocked By UK’s Ministry of Justice; It Might Offend Southeast Asians

The Sun reports that a proposed legal ban on eating dogs and cats was blocked by officials in the UK’s Ministry of Justice. The reason? Member of Parliament Giles Watling was told by a source inside the Ministry it would be “culturally insensitive for the government to dictate to other nations what they should eat.”

The source added that the law would be difficult to enforce and the “current ban on transporting or exporting dog and cat meat suffices.”

Watling told The Sun:

Dogs are our companion animals. We do not eat them, and that is a very important message to send to the rest of the world.

It’s not culturally insensitive because we’re not telling them what to do – we’re just telling them what we do.

We shouldn’t be worrying about that, so I was surprised that was the MoJ’s objection.

A Ministry of Justice spokeswoman spoke to The Sun and said, “We currently have some of the strongest animal welfare laws in the world. The government is currently considering whether any changes are needed in this area in the UK and will set out any plans in due course.”

The practice is already banned in Germany, Austria, Taiwan, South Australia and Hong Kong.

According to The Sun:

An estimated 30 million dogs a year are slaughtered to be eaten, across China, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.

Most are stolen off the street.

Their meat is considered both a delicacy and a health tonic.

 The Sun has a photograph on their website of the “Yulin Dog Meat Festival” which is held annually in China’s Guangxi province. It’s difficult to look at.

It is illegal to eat dog or cat meat in the US, but I was surprised to see how recently this legislation passed. The Federal Dog and Cat Meat Trade Prohibition Act was was signed into law in December 2018 as part of the 2018 Farm Bill.

Former Republican Governor Calls Aspiring Gun Thief Beto O’Rourke an ‘Immature Pest’

Westlake Legal Group Untitled-1-16-620x317 Former Republican Governor Calls Aspiring Gun Thief Beto O’Rourke an ‘Immature Pest’ Uncategorized Front Page Stories Featured Story

Democratic U.S. Representative Beto O’Rourke takes part in a debate for the Texas U.S. Senate with Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, in Dallas, Friday, Sept. 21, 2018. (Tom Fox/The Dallas Morning News via AP, Pool)

 

 

On Monday, former Republican New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu provided a new characterization for 2020 hopeful Beto “I can changed a tire, and I can prove it” O’Rourke: Given the heap of absurdity coming out of his mouth — specifically, a promise to steal America’s most popular hunting rifle from the homes of its citizens — the dude’s an “immature pest.”

John told Fox News host Bill Hemmer Beto’s just grabbing at whatever straws he can:

“He really is desperate at this point and will say just about anything to get a headline. You gave him a headline, and so he will probably continue to say silly things like that that will irritate both his Democrats and the Republicans.”

I’d like to offer an idea here: He may be saying really, punishingly stupid things out of desperation; but if so, his desperation is due to his low numbers and his low numbers are due to saying really stupid things.

As a reminder:

And, subsequently, this:

There was also this:

And it’s all this:

Not all congressional Democrats are happy with Beto’s antics: Over the weekend, Democratic Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline claimed there’s no reason to believe his party is suggesting guns should be confiscated, and that Beto’s doofiness “doesn’t help.”

To John, that only further solidifies Beto’s place in the politisphere:

“[I]t just confirms that Beto O’Rourke has slipped into the role of the immature pest that even the Democrats want out of the process.”

Given the roll he’s on, they probably won’t have to wait very long.

Ted Cruz Destroys NY Times Over Kavanaugh Smear, Says It Confirms the Paper’s Bias and Political Agenda

As I wrote earlier today, the New York Times has been rightly taken to the woodshed the last two days after a thinly sourced hit piece they did over the weekend on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh fell apart once The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway scrutinized the piece and found a crucial point missing:

The paper issued a correction several hours after this was pointed out to them …

… but not before the damage was done, and not before numerous Democratic candidates for president jumped on board the “Impeach Kavanaugh” train.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who is no stranger to smears coming from the mainstream media, ripped the Times in a must-read Twitter rant earlier today.

He started off by noting that the Kavanaugh hit piece would have gotten a student an “F” in high school, insinuating the piece should have never gotten past the paper’s editors. Because it did, Cruz suggested this proves the Times has a “political agenda”:

There’s just no other explanation but bias, asserted Cruz, as to why the paper omitted the critical information about alleged victim Deborah Ramirez:

Will any of the 2020 presidential candidates retract or amend their calls for impeachment against Kavanaugh? Of course not, Cruz opined:

Cruz is right. There is no legitimate justification whatsoever for why the paper published the article they did on Kavanaugh without noting the alleged victim does not even recall the alleged incident.

As I speculated earlier, I suspect this piece was published for one reason and one reason only: To help Democrats in their efforts to intimidate the sitting conservative-leaning Justices on the Supreme Court to rule on future cases in their favor in hopes that once they do, the media and leftists will finally leave them alone.

Cruz is also right in stating that it’s highly unlikely the NYT would have issued a correction had it not been for Hemingway’s tweet. Stories like these are why it’s very important that conservative new media types keep up the pressure on mainstream media outlets to own up to their mistakes and deliberate falsehoods.

Otherwise, nine times out of ten the fake news will stand as the official media-driven “record” in place of the truth.

How Very Big Tech-DC: Jeffrey Epstein’s Meeting with Elon Musk and Big Tech’s Elite

There are variations of a joke that have been making their way round the Internet.

A version goes something like this:

Q: What is the difference between pedophiles and Republicans?

A: Washington, D.C. and Big Tech will work with pedophiles.

We all know how both DCs Swamp Creatures and the monstrous Big Tech monsters feel about members of the GOP.

President Donald Trump is the first Republican in decades to actually take seriously the implementation of conservative policies.

And DC and Big Tech – the Swamp Elites – HATE him.

Why the Swamp Hates Trump

Washington Post’s Bezos Hates Trump

Elon Musk Is Not a Fan of Donald Trump

Leaked Video: Google Leadership’s Dismayed Reaction to Trump Election

And whenever Big Tech companies discover Republicans on their payroll – they carve them out as if they were melanoma cells.

One of the Swamp Elite’s favorite people – was Jeffrey Epstein.

You remember Jeffrey Epstein.  Epstein committed suicide in jail in August – after FINALLY getting (again) arrested after decades of sexually assaulting underage girls.

‘I’m Not a Pedophile’: Remorseless Jeffrey Epstein Said ‘Children He Raped and Assaulted Did Not Look Underage, and Claimed HE Was a Victim’ In His Final Interviews

The ‘Sex Slave’ Scandal That Exposed Pedophile Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein

Epstein sounded like a really pleasant fellow.

But Epstein was rarely alone on his escapades.

Jeffrey Epstein’s World of Wealth and Powerful Friends

And sometimes – members of DCs Swamp Elite were on board and along for the ride.

Flight Logs Show Bill Clinton Flew on Sex Offender’s Jet Much More Than Previously Known

Well that’s hardly a galloping shocker.  But….

Jeffrey Epstein Documents Could Expose Powerful Politicians

Accused Sex Trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s Political Connections: A Guide

Flight Logs Released from Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’

And when it came to political coin – Epstein was like serial woman assaulter Harvey Weinstein.

Both loved lavishing lots of coin on Democrats.  Which bought both of them lots of closed eyes and turned heads – when it came to their sexual depravities.

Democrats Pressured to Return Donations from Harvey Weinstein

Billionaire Sex Offender Epstein Gave Heavily to Democrats

The Left desperately tried to tie Trump to Epstein.  Except….

Trump Banned Epstein From Mar-a-Lago Years Ago, Here’s Why…:

“‘…because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club, according to court documents….’”

You know who didn’t ban Epstein from…anything at all?  Big Tech’s Elite.

In 2011, Jeffrey Epstein Was A Known Sex Offender. The Leaders Of Amazon, Google, And Tesla Dined With Him Anyway:

“After pleading guilty to charges of soliciting prostitution from an underage girl, Jeffrey Epstein spent part of 2011 reintroducing himself to elite society.

“A March 2011 dinner with the most powerful figures in tech showed just how connected he was…..

“Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Google cofounder Sergey Brin, and others were all in town for TED, the annual conference with the slogan ‘ideas worth spreading.’  They were among friends at an annual event called the ‘billionaires’ dinner’….

“This elite dinner, and another similarly select gathering that Epstein attended later that year, were both organized by the New York literary agent John Brockman, whose exclusive intellectual club, called Edge, seems to have played a role in Epstein’s efforts to regain credibility and influence in circles of the rich and powerful.

“At the time, he was less than two years removed from finishing a 13-month prison term in a Florida state jail for soliciting prostitution from an underage girl….

“Epstein wasn’t named in the photos posted on the Edge website, but he appears in the background of a snap of Zack Bogue, a venture capitalist and husband of Marissa Mayer, then a vice president at Google….

“Other photos show the participants mingling before or after taking their seats. Also present were Bezos; Musk; Brin; Salar Kamangar, then CEO of (Google-owned) YouTube; Mayer, who the following year left Google to become CEO of Yahoo; and Anne Wojcicki, Brin’s then-wife and CEO of genetic testing startup 23andMe….

“Epstein attended a second exclusive Edge event in July 2011, held over a weekend at a winery in St. Helena, California. There, he mingled with a handful of leading scientists and several science journalists, plus wealthy power brokers including Sean Parker, former president of Facebook, and Nicholas Pritzker, a venture capitalist and former CEO of the Hyatt Development Corporation. Pritzker’s venture firm has invested in Uber, (Musk’s companies) Tesla and SpaceX and he is now on the board of vaping startup Juul Labs.”

That is a veritable Who’s Who – of Big Tech Elites.

What have we learned?

Nothing new, really – if you’ve been paying any attention at all.

Just like DCs Elite, Big Tech’s Elite will put up with a whole lot of really heinous behavior – if you keep kicking in huge coin to fund their activities.

And/or provide illegal extracurricular activities in which they can engage.

All of which begs a set of separate, specific questions: Of the Donald Trump Administration – about government-funded perpetual failure Elon Musk.

Musk owns the aforementioned SpaceX and Tesla – and SolarCity.

All three of which – have (at least) two things in common:

They have each taken billions of dollars in government money – and they are all miserable failures.

About which Musk couldn’t care less – so long as it’s our massive money he’s losing.

If ever there was a person at the Big Tech-DC Swamp crossroads – it is Elon Musk.

Almost no one has his snout more deeply buried in the DC money trough.

Almost no one is more beloved for his many, MANY government-funded failures.

Musk is Big Tech’s biggest DC Swamp Creature.

So why hasn’t Donald Trump ejected Musk – the way he ejected Epstein?

The Trump Administration – has kept the Musk government gravy train a-rolling.

Despite Musk’s badmouthing Trump prior to the 2016 election.

Here’s Everything Elon Musk Has Ever Said About Donald Trump

Despite Musk endorsing Democrat Andrew “$1K a Month In Vote-Buying Bribes for All” Yang for 2020.

Despite ALL of this – we get:

Trump Praises Elon Musk

Vice President Mike Pence Met With Elon Musk

VP Pence’s meeting would have only made sense – if he had taken it to deliver pre-President Trump’s famous phrase:

You’re fired.”

It’s WAY past time – to FINALLY get uber-failure Welfare King Elon Musk off the government teat.
