Breaking News

Breaking News:
Item 1-

                Harvard Law School Professor Laurence Tribe, Idiot Emeritus at the School of Life and Honorary Buffoon of the National Lawyers Guild, tweeted out his most cogent thoughts on the Florida high school mass-shooting tragedy. He noted that every mass shooting has been perpetrated by a male, adding that this fact “suggests to me” that they are “driven by doubts about masculinity.” He finished with this clinical observation; “Small hands, big guns. A lethal equation.”
                Nailed it, Larry! Even if there was a scintilla of truth to the last, is it somehow okay to make a generalized statement about a group of men? It’s fine to mock them because of something they have no control over, such as the size of certain body parts? Would it be hip to mock a female for her small breasts? Make lethal assumptions about overweight women? Apparently, he thinks it’s okay to stereotype males in general and a subset thereof in particular. Or, maybe he just took a not-so-veiled cheap-shot at President Trump.
                Progressives have succeeded in splitting the country by ideology. There are now two groups of Americans. Those that pledge their allegiance to leftist dogma can often get away with saying and doing just about anything. Those that don’t…are smeared and reviled as intolerant bigots.
Item 2-

                William Mendoza, a senior policy advisor under former President Barack Obama, resigned from his position in November of 2016 after being arrested and charged with attempted voyeurism. Mendoza, 42, has been convicted of sex crimes after following women and taking photos up their skirts with a government-issued iPhone, according to recently released documents obtained by The Daily Mail.
                Mr. Mendoza, who received a $140,000 annual salary while working for the Obama administration, attempted to take photos and videos up women’s skirts while they were riding on the Washington, DC, Metro on at least four occasions in July 2016. Our tax dollars in action! You may be asking yourself why you’ve never heard this before. The mainstream media had no interest in the story. A government official involved in public sexual harassment, smart-phone hanky-panky, lurid photos…nope, doesn’t sound like anything on which they’d normally report, does it? Imagine if, instead of Mendoza, it was a member of the Trump administration. MSNBC, CNN, NBC, etc., would have one-hour nightly specials on the rampant misogyny and perversion in the Trump White House. Double-standards? See Item #1 above!
Item 3-
The left-wing public policy group Center for American Progress has fretted about unwarranted voter suppression for years. Now, however, they want to make it much more difficult for Americans in the military serving their country overseas to vote. The group recently issued a report titled “Election Security in All 50 States” (do we have seven fewer than Obama recognized?), calling for stricter standards to prevent cyber-meddling in elections. These standards would prohibit overseas military personnel from submitting ballots via email or fax.
Most states have incorporated vigorous standards to protect the integrity of ballots cast by service-members stationed or living overseas, but CAP will have none of that. The 245-page report reads in part, “Regardless of the state’s secure ballot return system for electronically voted ballots, we recommend that all voted ballots be returned by mail or delivered in person.” That’s progress! (“Preferably arrive on foot or via Conestoga wagon!”).
This tells you everything you need to know about the group. They want to make it easier for everyone else to vote, but harder for those defending the nation. Show a driver’s license or ID at the polling place? Hell, no! Not necessary! In favor of undocumented aliens voting? Hell, yes! Why not? Continue to “allow” those risking their lives for their country to vote? Of course not!
Item 4-
Former White House staffer-- and all-around fruitcake-- Omarosa Manigault Newman said on a recent episode of Celebrity Big Brother: “As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence—everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life.” She told her fellow contestants, “I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things,” referring to Pence.
The comment caused The View co-host Joy Behar to wig-out, saying on air: “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus. It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you. That’s called mental illness, if I’m not correct, hearing voices.” Even Joy’s word choice was incorrect. What she meant to say is, “If I’m not mistaken,” not “If I’m not correct.” As stated, she negated her own attempt at making a point. What Joy exhibits—on a show by show basis-- is mental illness.
To paraphrase a former anchorperson: “(And) that’s the way it is, February 15th, 2018.” Sadly.
