Wild eyed Mitch McConnell is fired up for Brett Kavanaugh

Published

on

Whether you like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or not, he was in his best form today addressing the Senate in defense of Brett Kavanaugh. He defended the Supreme Court nominee’s own fiery responses in last week’s hearings by pointing out how Democrats had shifted from attacking him as a sexual predator to questioning his qualifications because of his heated responses to their questions.

“We have a chance to do good here and to underscore the basic tenet of fairness in our country,” he said before declaring that he filed cloture.

McConnell may be too moderate and conciliatory to the Democrats as Senate Majority Leader, but his strengths were on display today as he made a firm defense for confirming Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Beauty queen Kathy Zhu was robbed because she’s a conservative

Beauty queen Kathy Zhu was robbed because shes a conservative

It’s okay to be “woke” if you’re participating in Miss World America. Several contestants have expressed radical political, cultural, and religious views that would be considered offensive to many conservatives, including support for dismemberment of preborn children, anti-law-enforcement sentiments, and one instance of clear racism against Caucasians. But it was the outspoken conservative beauty queen, Kathy Zhu, who was stripped of her title and forced to disassociate herself from the competition immediately.

She posted her conversation with Miss World America Michigan state director Laurie DeJack as well as the email correspondence with the organization regarding her ousting:

Some news outlets are reporting the ousting had to do with her controversial response to being asked to “try a hijab” in 2018, but the text messages do not reflect that. It could have been cited during a phone conversation, which apparently happened in the midst of the text conversation.

But the directly attributed reason was a Tweet in which Zhu addressed an unknown person or group who was apparently complaining about African-American deaths. In response, she noted that black-on-black violence is the most prevalent circumstance in African-American homicides.

She worded it a bit differently:

“Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others.”

Zhu quote-Tweeted a post sent to Vice President Pence:

Yes, her post was controversial. Was it racist? No, not in context. As she noted in her letter to the pageant, she was referring to statistical facts. Is that grounds for removal? Perhaps it is… as long as they’re being consistent. But Zhu isn’t the only contestant posting very controversial statements on social media. As of now, there seems to be no others who have indicated they were removed for similar reasons even though some have social media posts that should be considered even worse relative to the rules of decorum set forth by the pageant. Of course, the posts that should be considered worse than Zhu’s are generally progressive.

It’s a shame that Zhu had her title and future participation banned, but she has an opportunity to highlight the anti-conservative bias in such organizations. She may not be competing, but she can be even more influential now within the conservative movement than she was before. She’s currently studying political science. Maybe that will translate into a life in politics.

If Miss World America were fair, they’d strip crowns from several of the contestants over their controversial social media posts. But they won’t. They located the lone controversial conservative in the group. They’ll only remove MAGA deplorable Kathy Zhu.

Liz Wheeler on Ilhan Omar: Chant ‘vote her out’ and then do it

Liz Wheeler on Ilhan Omar Chant vote her out and then do it

One America News host Liz Wheeler was in rare form yesterday as she hammered Representative Ilhan Omar over a plethora of bigoted statements, horrible policy proposals, and anti-American perspectives. Her worldview is not one that should be in Congress, but Wheeler also made an important point about how that worldview needs to be removed. Instead of calling to “send her back,” Americans should be chanting, “vote her out.”

This is America. As ridiculous as it is that someone with the radically unpatriotic ideology that Omar demonstrates is sitting in a chair on Capitol Hill, we must respect that she’s an American citizen and a duly elected representative of her Congressional district. It makes no sense, but that’s the way things are for now. As much as we would love to see her replaced, we must do it the way that makes the most sense – at the ballot box.

If it’s proven that she broke immigration laws or committed fraud of other kinds, then we can talk about other measures. But until then, she is innocent until proven guilty. At this point, there isn’t even an investigation into her past actions, let alone charges filed. We must respect due process rights from start to finish, even if we disagree with someone. We expect people on the left to disregard the Constitution. As conservatives, we must not go to that low level with them.

Here’s the transcript from the video of Wheeler’s final point on her show, Tipping Point:

Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is a bigot.

She supports the anti-semitic BDS movement that does not think Israel has a right to exist.

Ilhan Omar compared Israel to Nazi Germany just yesterday she spoke at a conference this year sponsored by the Council on American-Islamic relations who was an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror financing prosecution in US history.

Ilhan Omar once tweeted that Jews and Israel have hypnotized the world.

Omar claimed that any U.S. politician who supports Israel was bought off by the Jews. She says their support for Israel is “All about the Benjamins.”

Ilhan Omar laughed about al-Qaeda during an interview and asked why we don’t talk about the U.S. the same way we talked about al-Qaeda. You know, the terror organization that waged the 9/11 terror attacks against us and killed 3,000 people.

Ilhan Omar then dismissed 9/11 as “some people did something.”

She supports Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro. In fact, Ilhan omar blames the U.S. for Maduro’s tyranny and oppression as the Maduro regime murders dissidents in the street if they dare to protest or criticize him.

Ilhan Omar is also pushing the Green New Deal in Congress which would transform the United States into a socialist state and force you to pay for other people’s universal basic income if they don’t want to work. It would also ban fossil fuels and force you to retrofit your house to be green and prohibit or penalize air travel.

Ilhan Omar supports Medicare-For-All which would force 150 million people off their current health care plans, cost 1 million Americans their jobs, and forced tax hikes on the middle class. In fact, Omar wants to force you to be a part of Medicare-for-All because she thinks she knows what’s best for you.

At the same time she’s introducing a bill in Congress pushing the BDS movement that literally says what’s best for Israel is for Israel not to have the right to exist. Imagine this woman having power over your health care.

And speaking of the right to exist., Ilhan Omar glorifies abortion without restriction up until the moment of birth and after all this, when Omar was asked if she regrets her vile anti-Semitic comments that even drew condemnation from Nancy Pelosi, Omar says “nope.”

This is why Ilhan Omar only has nine percent approval rating among swing voters in our country, because Omar’s views are bigoted and racist and socialist and radical and utterly antithetical to the values on which this nation was built – freedom and liberty and justice for all. So chant, “vote her out.” Do not chants “send her back.” She’s a citizen of the United States. This is her home. Do not distract from her bigotry. Chant “vote her out” and then do it. Vote her out of office before she imposes her disgusting bigotry on our nation.

And that’s is my final point.

Wheeler is absolutely correct. The time to vote Ilhan Omar out of office is coming next year. In the meantime, let’s keep the focus on her bigotry and failed socialist ideology. The left has no defense against the truth.

The real reason Kamala Harris and others keep dodging on Medicare-for-All funding

The real reason Kamala Harris and others keep dodging on Medicare-for-All funding

Arguably the first major “dumb” moment for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was when she replied to a question about paying the $32 trillion price tag associated with Medicare-for-All. She said, “You just pay for it.”

Conservatives were laughing at the response while many Independents and even some Democrats were scratching their collective heads. But she meant exactly what we said. Let’s put a pin in that for a moment and move on to an interview Kamala Harris did with CNN.

Even the Democrat-friendly CNN reporter couldn’t help but press Harris about how she plans to pay for Medicare-for-All without raising taxes on the middle class. Bernie Sanders has acknowledged he’d have to raise taxes to pay for Medicare-for-All. What strange math does Harris know that Sanders does not? Is it simply artful dodging of the question over and over again as the Senator kept calling it an “investment”? Is she just pandering, knowing darn well she’ll have to raise taxes on everyone in order to fund socialized medicine but pretending like she won’t? Or is she being absolutely serious?

I’m going with that. She’s saying what she means. In essence, she’s saying what AOC said. Harris is just going to have the U.S. government pay for it even if tax dollars won’t cover it.

At this point one might be thinking that both Harris and Ocasio-Cortez are delusional. If that were the case, I wouldn’t be too worried. But they’re not delusional, at least not to the point that they don’t really know what they’re insinuating by saying the government is going to “invest” in Medicare-for-All and we’re just going to pay for it. There’s only one way to do this without drastic tax increases. It’s called Modern Monetary Theory and AOC has been on board with the disastrous concept since before she was elected. Now, it seems Harris is going to invoke the same methodology to pay for her version of Medicare-for-All and whatever else she has up her sleeve.

In essence, Modern Monetary Theory erases the fear of budget deficits and skyrocketing national debt by printing money. And more money. And again. Rinse. Repeat.

It’s the precursor for hyperinflation, though its proponents claim otherwise. They’ll tell you we’re already running trillion dollar deficits and nothing bad is happening, so why not keep going? Why not run five trillion dollar deficits? Or more? The government and the Fed have the power to keep printing as much money as they want, and as long as the U.S. Dollar is the world reserve currency, there’s really no way for hyperinflation to set in.

But it will. There’s no possible way to avoid it once the world takes note because they’ll instantly seek other avenues to replace the Dollar. That includes OPEC and the designation of the petrodollar being shifted. Nobody wants to rely on a currency that is being devalued by its own government. They’ll bail. And when they do, hyperinflation will set in.

When radical progressive politicians give strange responses about how they’re going to pay for their huge projects, take them at their word when they say they’ll just pay for it. They have a plan in mind that’s more dangerous than anything our economy has faced.
