    I read it and thought “I should post this they might enjoy it.” I think objectively….unlike Trumpanzees

    Of  course, objectivity is CNN, Politico, WaPo, NBC, MSNBC, Huffington Post, NYT, etc.  This is the true Dimorat  perspective.  The ‘objectivity’ is laughable.

    The leftist agenda has become a religion, and if someone dares disagree, they are obviously non-believers.  They used to burn heretics. No discourse is allowed, in fact censorship of dissidence is recommended…wouldn’t want anyone providing alternatives to the totalitarian socialist utopia proposed by naïve progressives.

    Orange County, a traditionally conservative enclave in Southern California turned all blue after Democrats found tens of thousands of votes post election day.

    Democrat blue wave? More like Democrat election fraud.
    The 39th district was officially called for Democrat Gil Cisneros over Republican Young Kim who was up by 3 points on election night and was set to be the first Korean-American Congresswoman. The Democrats stole this race with ‘late votes.’
    Young Kim was up by 3,900 votes on election night with 100% of the precincts reporting according to AP and she ended up losing by 3,000 votes 11 days after the election.

    Republican Congresswoman Mimi Walters in California’s 45th district was also ahead on election night then was magically defeated by Democrat Katie Porter several days after the election.
    Democrat Katie Porter was trailing Mimi Walters on election night then jumped ahead by hundreds of votes after the Democrats produced thousands of ballots after the election.

    Just one case out of many…shall I post them all?    One woman who lives in Newport Beach in California’s 48th district said she hasn’t missed a vote in 43 years and was forced to fill out a provisional ballot on election day; her vote still hasn’t been counted.
    “I was made to fill out provisional ballot after voting in the same precinct in OC consistently 20 years said I was mail in never have been My vote still has not been counted I check daily. Same with red friends. I’m ind. never missed a vote n 43 yrs,” tweeted a Newport Beach resident named Vanessa Butler.

    Dims are pretty good at stealing elections (except for 2016, thanks Hillary) not just in CA.  Arizona is another good example.

    Shameful, really. But winning is all that matters, isn’t it.

    Ocasio Cortez

    Progressive darling and Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York didn’t accurately name the three branches of government on Sunday despite her upcoming role as a congresswoman.
    “If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress, uh, rather, all three chambers of government — the presidency, the Senate and the House — in 2020,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “We can’t start working in 2020.”
    The self-proclaimed Democratic socialist seemed to be confusing the two chambers of Congress, the House of Representatives and the Senate, with the three branches of American government, the Executive, Legislative and Judicial.
    Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude from Boston University in 2011 with a bachelors degree in economics and international relations.

    CNN’s Jake Tapper put a very simple question to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: How are you planning to pay for the many and various expensive programs and plans that you are either proposing or support? The New York soon-to-be congresswoman didn’t have any answers. none

    As for international relations, she is a bit confused about Israel/Palestine.

    Since winning her election Nov. 6, Ocasio-Cortez has continued to challenge the Democratic Party leadership, joining a sit-in protest in the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over climate change policy.
    Though she has not yet taken office, Ocasio-Cortez is already committing to replacing many of her colleagues — apparently on the basis of race and ideology.
    Backing the campaign includes Palestinian American Representative-elect Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), whose views are so hostile to Israel that even the left-wing J Street organization withdrew its support for her campaign.

    “Why People Are Freaking Out About Chipotle Firing, Tekashi 6ix9ine Racketeering Arrest, & More…”

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PQn6srQTdA

    I love Chipotle so insanely much that I would keep eating it even if I found out the Chorizo was made from human babies. I am ADDICTED to that place! I mean, the flavors are out of this world, the service is to die for, it is a dream come true. I still think that undercover Baja Fresh saboteurs set my beloved Chipotle up with that whole “E. Coli” bullshit to try and take their competition down. No matter, Chipotle shall stay supreme forever because loyal fans like me stay, well, addicted. By the way, this asshole (who just happens to be black, not that his race his relevant here) admitted to dine and dashing. He is a scumbag and asking him if he had money to pay was totally fair and reasonable. I support racial justice and am against racial profiling but this is obviously not that at all, given the specific context of this situation. LONG LIVE CHIPOTLE! May their haters burn in the Baja Fresh-serving hell they belong in for all eternity! Thank you to Philip DeFranco for bringing this infuriating story to my attention. I found it personally important due to my Chipotle obsession.

    “Chipotle Apologizes To Fired Manager And Offers Her Job Back”

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/chipotle-apologizes-fired-manager_us_5bf35f2ce4b0376c9e67fd62?63e

    They should have investigated further before firing her. I feel sorry for the manager Dominique Moran, victim of an SJW-zombie mob mentality without any care for what the actual facts are. Sometimes things are more complicated than they initially appear. Obviously, I still support Chipotle, I just feel bad for her losing her job. If she took it back that would be cool, but I wouldn’t blame her for telling the company to screw off after how she was treated.

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    Britain has not offered asylum to a Pakistani Christian woman freed after eight years on death row for blasphemy because of fear it would prompt “unrest” in the UK and attacks on embassies.

    Asia Bibi was arrested in 2010, when two Muslim women accused her of blasphemy. She drew water from a Muslim villager’s well. After being brutally beaten in the streets, she was told that she would need to convert to Islam if she wanted to live. She refused — and was put in jail and sentenced to death.

    She had a trial and last month, Bibi was acquitted — but she is not safe. Islamic radicals have been protesting her release, calling for her death and the death of the Supreme Court judges who freed her.

    The UK will not help her, so where is Canada or the USA or any other supposedly civilised country?  Where is the UN Human Rights Council?

    Beijing Debuts Plan to Monitor Behavior of Every Resident by End of 2020

    Beijing plans to reward and punish its residents based on data that will be collected from various departments monitoring citizens’ social behavior, according to a detailed “action plan” posted on Monday to the city’s municipal website.

    By the beginning of 2020, the announcement declares, China’s capital city will have all residents officially locked into the permanent surveillance program, part of a broader effort to have every Chinese citizen rated on a “social credit system” decreeing what public services a person can use based on their obedience to laws and loyalty to the communist regime.

    The government will use the data collected to assess citizens’ behavior to decide if an individual is law-abiding and “trustworthy” to the Communist Party.

    Residents who behave properly in the eyes of the Chinese government will receive high credit scores, while residents who misbehave will receive low scores, causing them to lead more difficult lives.

    Orwell and Sartre in your face…and the Inquisition as well

    Border Patrol Official: Caravan Migrants Pushed Women and Children to Front of Clash While Assaulting Officers
    What is unconscionable is that people would take children intentionally into this situation. What we saw over and over yesterday was that the group, the caravan as we call them, would push women and children toward the front and then begin, basically, rocking our agents. Rodney Scott, Chief Patrol Agent for the San Diego Sector of the border

    This is a tactic commonly used by ISIS and the Palestinians, and many more, historically. Really disgusting, isn’t it?

    Why would the Left support FGM?  This is child abuse of the highest order.

    A federal judge dismissed criminal charges against two doctors in a landmark female genital mutilation case and ruled that Congress “overstepped its bounds” by passing a law banning the procedure.
    The case centered on two Michigan doctors and six others charged last year in connection with arranging to perform female genital mutilation on nine girls, four from Michigan and five of whom were brought to the state from Illinois and Minnesota.
    While female genital mutilation has been a federal crime in the United States for more than two decades, the Michigan doctors were the first to be charged under the law. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement touted the indictments at the time, saying the charges “will hopefully deal a critical blow to stamping out this inhumane practice.”
    But on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman found the federal ban unconstitutional, ruling that, among other reasons, female genital mutilation is a “local criminal activity” that must be regulated by the states, not Congress.

    Is there anyone out there who will defend FGM? Is there anyone so heartless inhumane misogynistic stupid that they would defend this barbaric torture?
