    Hillary Clinton Picks Up First 2020 Endorsement

    Hillary Clinton’s prospects for a historic political comeback continue to improve. The former public-speaking magnate, who has not formally declared her candidacy in the 2020 Democratic primary, picked up her first major endorsement on Tuesday.
    “I think that Hillary should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” President Donald J. Trump wrote magnanimously about his former political opponent on Twitter.

    Bernie Sanders’s recent health struggles, along with Joe Biden’s cognitive dysentery, have provided an opening for Hillary to enter the race as a relatively healthy alternative, her own struggles notwithstanding.

    I just saw Nancy Pelosi at my work

    She has the same sense of haute couture as Hillary.

    The Canadian election is October 21st.

    Tonight we had the candidates debate (English), and on Oct. 10 is the French language debate.  The candidates:

    Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau (Left)
    Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer (Right)
    NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh (Far Left)
    Bloc Québécois Leader Yves-François Blanchet  (Separatist)
    Green Party Leader Elizabeth May (Green)
    People’s Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier.  (Far Right)

    Most viewers gave Jagmeet Singh the edge.  The NDP (New Democratic Party) is the number 3 party in Canada and they stand left of the Liberals.  Mr. Singhs cool intelligent responses and his calm composure could win votes back for the NDP, and away from the Liberals, providing a chance for the Conservatives to pull off a win.    Not really likely, though, as we are probably too polite to refuse Justin a second term…most likely is a minority Liberal or Conservative government.  Minority governments are good as they are forced to negotiate to retain power and often produce balanced bipartisan legislation.

    This will be the first time I vote Conservative.  I have always voted Liberal or NDP up to now.  I voted for Justin Trudeau and later found out that he is a globalist high tax weak economy snowflake.  The truth is, I voted for the legalization of marijuana, a life long dream.

    ‘South Park’ Punches Back: ‘F**k the Chinese Government’

    South Park escalated its criticism of the Chinese communist regime on Wednesday, with lead character Randy Marsh at one point saying “fuck the Chinese government.”

    The episode comes days after the show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, issued a fake apology the communist regime after Chinese authorities banned the Comedy Central show following last week’s episode that called out the nation’s rampant censorship.

    “Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts. We, too, love money more than freedom and democracy,” the apology read.

    Last week’s episode, entitled Band in China, also mocks jokes about China’s crackdown on Winnie the Pooh, whose character has repeatedly been compared to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

    The episode also takes a dig at Hollywood’s willingness to bend to Beijing’s censorship demands when Stan and his crew are approached American director working for the Chinese film company about making a biopic of their heavy metal rock band.

    “You got to lower your ideals of freedom if you want to suck on the warm teat of China,” the director says at one point. “Everyone else is fine with China approving our entertainment. Even the PC Babies don’t seem to mind. And PC Babies cry about everything!”

    Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey got both his team and most of the NBA in hot water with China for his tweet that supported a Hong Kong free from Chinese communism. The NBA backpedaled from Morey’s comments and tiptoed the fine line of free speech and maintaining a billion-dollar money stream from China.

    LeBron James spoke about Morey’s tweet Monday night, saying the Houston GM “wasn’t educated” on the situation with Hong Kong and China.
    “We all have freedom of speech, but at times, there are ramifications for a negative that can happen,” James said to reporters Monday night. “I don’t want to get into a feud with Daryl, but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke. Some of the people have been harmed, and not financially but physically, emotionally and spiritually.”

    On Tuesday morning Herschel Walker posed this important question: “America is the greatest country in the world-free to speak and think for yourself! Question ..during Summer Olympics will the @NBA players play for USA or China?

    Barack Obama on Wednesday inserted himself into Canada’s election and gave far-left Prime Minister Justin “Blackface” Trudeau an unusual endorsement.

    “I was proud to work with Justin Trudeau as President. He’s a hard-working, effective leader who takes on big issues like climate change. The world needs his progressive leadership now, and I hope our neighbors to the north support him for another term,” Barack Obama said in a tweet.

    The last thing we need in Canada is foreign interference in our elections.  Piss off,  Barry, and mind your own business.  Besides, aren’t you forgetting some one?  Poor old Joe Biden.  Awkward!

    Twitter users immediately accused Obama (correctly) of foreign election meddling.

    It’s no mystery why he’s buddying up to Justin.
    de Gaulle tried that in Quebec and look what happened.

    LeBron is no Neitzsche but he reminds me of the latter’s belief that it’s perfectly fine to repress and kill inferior beings.

    The U.S.-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) trade agreement.

    “There are only a few days left in the legislative calendar before the end of 2019. If Nancy Pelosi fails to put the USMCA up for a vote this month, it will be a signal failure of our political process and an economic catastrophe”. Peter Navarro
    _________________________________________________________________

    Pelosi has been pushing forward with an “impeachment inquiry” into President Trump but refuses to hold a vote in the House officially opening impeachment proceedings—thereby opening Democrats up to criticism from the White House and Republicans in Congress who say the process is illegitimate.

    What a loser.  This is what happens when the Left is put in charge of anything…NOTHING

    CNN Headline:   Democrats walk out after Trumps meltdown

    (false headline)

    It was Pelosi who had the meltdown and walked out.

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said a meeting between congressional leaders and President Donald Trump came to an end because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stormed out.
    McCarthy said, “She storms out of another meeting, trying to make it unproductive. The other Democrats stayed and had a productive meeting.”

    Pelosi was out of control on Wednesday and made a scene at the White House with her partner-in-crime Senator Chuck Schumer. President Trump savagely trolled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Wednesday after she threw a tantrum and stormed out of a White House meeting with Trump on Syria.

    President Trump put Pelosi in her place and called her a “third grade politician.” But he wasn’t done.
    A senior Democrat aide said that Trump hit Pelosi again with another zinger as she stood up with Schumer and left the meeting.
    “Goodbye, we’ll see you at the polls.” Trump said to Pelosi and Schumer.

    And later on Twitter: “Nancy Pelosi needs help fast! There is either something wrong with her “upstairs,” or she just plain doesn’t like our great Country. She had a total meltdown in the White House today. It was very sad to watch. Pray for her, she is a very sick person!

    I felt like I threw my vote away. But ultimately i voted with my conscience.
    Watching the results trickling in is nerve wracking.
