    The House under Pelosi,

    actually under AOC,

    will not denounce anti-Semitism.  

    And you Democrats call Republicans racists and bigots…what a laugh.

    Will the real Nazis raise their hands?

    Oh, they already did.

    Well, at least you have the backing of 2 of your heroes, George Soros and David Duke.  (DaveyD loves Omar, din’t ya know? He has endorsed her to all his followers.)

    Former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke endorsed radical Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar on Thursday as the “most important person in Congress.”
    David Duke posted a photo of Ilhan Omar to his Twitter account on Thursday with a “heart eyes emoji,” showing his love for her after her recent comments disparaging Jews and Israel.
    David Duke praised Ilhan Omar on his podcast/blog for being the “one person in Congress willing to notice AIPAC and the “dual” loyalty of many members of Congress.”

    Howard Schultz: ‘Dems Will Be ‘Spoiler’ If They Nominate ‘Far-Left Person’

    Schultz said a divided Democratic Party is on the verge of backing a “socialist” in a Thursday interview on Fox News’ “The Daily Briefing With Dana Perino.”

    “If the Democrats decide in their wisdom to nominate a far-left person who is professing policies that resemble that of a socialist — that will be the spoiler.”

    The former Starbucks CEO has been trashed by Democratic activists, who believe his candidacy would guarantee the re-election of President Donald Trump in 2020 because Schultz would split the anti-Trump vote.

    “It is an organized effort by a group of people that are trying to do whatever they can to stop me in my tracks,” Schultz told Fox.
    Schultz suggested the Democratic Party is coming apart at the seams between the old guard and the more radical “newcomers,” who are aggressively promoting a leftist agenda.

    “I think there’s clearly a division within the Democratic Party that is going on behind closed doors between the people who are trying to maintain a moderate position and those newcomers who are trying to promote a far left-leaning agenda.”

    So true, Howard.

    A rational Liberal is a breath of fresh air.

    Howard Schultz—who has nothing to offer—is going nowhere. Deservedly so.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/10/media/jeanine-pirro-ilhan-omar/index.html Time to fire Judge Pain in the Ass

    Former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka on Monday defended Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, saying she was “absolutely right” to suggest that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) hijab symbolizes her loyalty to Sharia law and opposition to the Constitution.

    “The hijab is a requirement of the religion of Islam. It is part of Sharia law. Sharia law does not comport with the U.S. Constitution. Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested.” said Gorka.

    “But of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution,” Pirro said. “I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.”

    I’d like to see that very much.

    So the white nationalist terrorist that shot up a mosque in New Zealand kept a dirty dossier that praised President Trump as “a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.” Another radical right wing terrorist that considers Trump a hero.

    How much longer does MAGA Nation ignore the fact that the president’s words actually matter and can incite extremist violence.

How much longer does MAGA Nation ignore the fact that the president’s words actually matter and can incite extremist violence.

    This is so predictable and…  Have you read what this creep wanted?  Probably not.

    The New Zealand shooter’s manifesto is a mix of avowed white supremacist sentiment and suggested tactics to fellow extremists — including his declared intention to exploit racial, cultural, and political divisions in the U.S.  Here he succeeded.

    In his document, the shooter describes himself as a socialist.” The shooter also declares his support for “environmentalism,” “worker’s rights,” and “responsible markets.”

    The shooter disparages conservatism and declines to identify with it, writing that “conservatism is dead, thank god,” and calling it “corporatism in disguise.” Conservatives, he says, “don’t even believe in the race, they don’t have the gall to say race exists” and “don’t even care if it does.”

    At three points in his manifesto, the shooter also states his intention to spark a civil war in the United States by triggering crackdowns on the Second Amendment. In his laundry list of motivations, the shooter spends the most amount of time discussing this goal, which he believes will ultimately lead to a “fracturing” of the U.S. along “cultural and racial lines.

    Elsewhere in the manifesto, the shooter predicts that his attack will lead to “calls for the removal of gun rights from whites in the United States… that is the plan all along.”“With enough pressure the left wing within the United States will seek to abolish the second amendment, and the right wing within the U.S. will see this as an attack on their very freedom and liberty. The attempted abolishment of rights by the left will result in a dramatic polarization of the people in the United States and eventually a fracturing of the U.S. along cultural and racial lines.”

    It is so tiresome to have to explain everything…reason, logic and critical thinking will not succumb to mindless propaganda and liberal dogma…

    The man allegedly responsible for the mass shooting at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, wrote in his manifesto that the modern political system he most admired was that of communist China.

    Tarrant’s alleged admiration for China may be based on the country’s fervent nationalist ideology, with citizens required to declare loyalty to the state above their religion or even their own families. Furthermore, China has also stepped up the repression of its own Muslim population, forcing over a million Uighurs into communist “re-education” camps where they are forced to renounce their own religion and declare loyalty to the state.

    Words matter and Tarrants own  words condemn him.

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) said the bipartisan outrage over controversial remarks made about Israel by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was “because she’s Muslim and because she’s black, she’s an easier target for them to attack.”

    This is such bullshit on so many levels:

    One, you cannot criticize women, because that is sexist,

    Two, you cannot criticize blacks, because that is racist, and

    Three, you cannot criticize Islam, because that is Islamophobic (and illegal here in Canada).  Imagine a religion you are not allowed to criticize.  Seriously?  I hereby criticize all religions as they are the opiates of the masses and stupid.

    Tlaib and Omar are both privileged as they are Muslims, and you are not allowed to criticize Muslims.  Got it?  They are Untouchables.

    I rarely ever come into this thread because it’s messy and I just think it’s hilarious seeing you and Vinny go at each other, but I definitely have to intervene and say that the things you are saying are just plain lies. In no way did the Senator or anyone else say that if you criticize a woman, a person of color, or someone of another religion is automatically sexist, racist, and phobic of said religion. She’s saying that because she is a minority, that she is not going to be taken as seriously and is prone to attacks (which is true). How you were able to twist what she said is beyond me and is just plain offensive.

    Edit: the fact that I just searched and found out that you copied word for word from Breitbart really begs the question why Vinny or anyone else would bother with you. Don’t bother quoting me because I doubt I’ll take you seriously enough to reply.

    I ask myself that every time but I’m oddly curious to see what he always puts next.

    Absolutely I quote from Breitbart, and The Daily Caller, and the Guardian and CNN and MSNBC and CBC and BBC and RT and Alex Jones and HuffPo and the Bible and the Quran and Gateway Pundit and many many others…it is just too tedious to provide a bibliography for all posts.  However, a quote which reflects my position, regardless of the source, stands.  It is good to see you read Breitbart too.

    I decided to grace you with my words once again since I’m bored and you apparently can’t read. I like how you didn’t deny you willingly lied but also embraced it. BBC is literally the only source out of that list that political scientists would whole heartedly recommend and you still manage to twist that (religious texts are a whole other thing). Breitbart, Alex Jones, GP, TDC, and HP are universally known as the worst sources for information. How the hell you were able to twist me searching online for the headline you provided into me actually wasting brain cells to read Breitbart astonishes me.

    Amid signs that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference may be near its conclusion, a new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll finds that trust in Mueller has eroded and half of Americans now agree with President Trump’s contention that he has been the victim of a “witch hunt.” Support for the House of Representatives to seriously consider impeaching the president has dropped since last October by 10 percentage points, to 28 percent…Fifty percent say they agree with Trump’s assertion that the special counsel’s investigation is a “witch hunt” and that he has been subjected to more investigations than previous presidents because of politics; 47 percent disagree. Just 3 percent don’t have an opinion. There is, unsurprisingly, a stark partisan divide on that question: 86 percent of Republicans but just 14 percent of Democrats say Trump is the victim of a “witch hunt.” Among independents, 54 percent say he is; 42 percent say he isn’t. Still, the president’s success in persuading fully half of the electorate that he’s been subjected to unprecedented scrutiny is notable, says David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk Political Research Center.

    Guy Benson    @guypbenson

    USA Today/Suffolk poll:

    – 50% now believe Trump a “witch hunt” target, including 54% of independents. Faith in Mueller falls.

    – Impeachment support slides to 28 percent.

    Investigation fatigue + overreach by Trump opponents could ultimately benefit him

    Donald J. Trump    @realDonaldTrump

    On the recent non-binding vote (420-0) in Congress about releasing the Mueller Report, I told leadership to let all Republicans vote for transparency. Makes us all look good and doesn’t matter. Play along with the game!

    Aren’t we all looking forward to the end of a two year investigation?  Now that was tedious and boring and pointless and expensive, though it did create employment for Mueller and his Lib cronies.

    Actually my degrees are in Political Science and History, and every political scientist and historian worth their salt researches as many sources as practically possible.

    FYI, the BBC is as biased as any other acclaimed MSM ‘news’ source, and is no more valid than CNN or FOX or Reuters or the NYTs.

    When you are unable to string a coherent, grammatically accurate sentence together while calling someone stupid you end up looking the fool.  Often I let it go, but your pedantic self-righteous arrogance required a response.
