Of course intersectionality is Kamala Harriss weapon Its all she has

Pete Buttigieg has intellect. Cory Booker has passion. Andrew Yang, Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, and Julian Castro have ideas. I may disagree with all of these candidates, but I respect that they’re trying to make the Democratic nomination race about more than their intersectional statuses. The same cannot be said about Kamala Harris, whose only claims to fame are running away from post policies, sleeping her way up the ladder, and the fact that she’s a female minority.

Since the first two claims to fame are negatives, she has latched onto her protected status as her primary qualification for being the Democratic nominee. Sure, she has ideas that she’s willing to throw out and change on a whim. She loves making threats with executive orders because doing so is a reminder of all President Obama “accomplished” with a phone and a pen. But her only real bump in the polls came as a result of attacking Joe Biden about racism and shining her credentials as a school girl on a bus, so that’s the story she’s sticking with.

But it can’t last. She can only keep flip-flopping on Medicare-for-All so many times before she’s forced to admit she wants to eliminate all health insurance other than supplemental insurance for those seeking cosmetic surgery. But she continues to hedge her bets, calling for the healthcare atrocity on one side while denying the reality of such a plan on the other side. It’s no wonder so many Americans are confused about what Medicare-for-All really means.

But between the promised executive orders to confiscate guns and the tiptoeing around healthcare, she continues to try to establish herself as the only candidate who checks off all the boxes. She may not be part of the LGBTQ community (as Willie Brown knows very well), but she’s still going after that vote by making Pride Month her favorite thing ever with three Tweets in the last 24 hours.

Kamala Harris will play the woman card. She’ll play the race card. She’ll play the victim card. She’ll echo the superior candidates to see what sticks, but her main focus is going to be about America voting for a female minority. It’s her only credential.

Gavin Newsom is proof California is completely lost

Gavin Newsom is proof California is completely lost

California Governor Gavin Newsom has one of the most prolific string of political failures ever seen in the United States. It seems like everything he touches turns to sludge. San Francisco, where he was on the Board of Supervisors or Mayor for 14 straight years, has become literally covered in human feces and is the homelessness capitol of America. As governor, his short tenure has already seen a state whose economy was crumbling fall further faster. But when it comes to getting elected, he’s a champion.

Why? Because California is completely lost. Those of us who live here realize it’s true. Despite unquestionable evidence that the state’s progressive policies are making things steadily worse, from high-and-still-growing taxes to unprecedented crime rates to the homeless problem that is not isolated to San Francisco, we continue to elect Democrats to drive us deeper into the hole. Despite the high taxes, we’re constantly running on budget deficits. How is this possible for a state so rich?

The answer is in the promises the Democrats make. And unfortunately, they keep many of their promises, which yields billions of dollars spent on a high-speed rail that was ill-conceived if it actually happened. But it didn’t. It’s massive amounts of money that accomplished nothing. Even when the programs “work,” they fail. More money has been spent per capita to stave off homelessness in San Francisco than anywhere else, yet it keeps getting worse.

Perhaps the biggest problem California has is believing the politicians. We get fed rhetoric that is so thick, it must be true because nobody would lie so blatantly. Except they really do lie. One of the latest was so big and ridiculous, even left-leaning PolitiFact had to call Newsom out.

Pants On Fire: Not Even Politifact Is Buying What Gavin Newsom Is Selling On San Francisco’s Homeless Problem

Politifact isn’t exactly the type of fact checking organization that rushes to defend Republicans or to take Democrats to task, so that they decided to take Newsom to the woodshed is worth mentioning.

When a lie is so egregious even your cheerleaders have to balk, you know you’ve gone a bit too far. But don’t expect Newsom to repent and come clean any time soon. As is part of the Democratic playbook, particularly in California, the most likely response is that he’s going to double down on his false claims. That’s what Democrats do when they’re caught in a lie.

If you’re curious, here’s Newsom’s most recent huge lie:

Gavin Newsom’s ridiculous claim: ‘Vast majority’ of San Francisco’s homeless people come from Texas

California Gov. Gavin Newsom claimed the “vast majority” of San Francisco’s homeless people come in from Texas.

San Francisco’s own homeless surveys contradict this. They show a large majority reported living in the city before becoming homeless, and just a fraction coming in from out-of-state.

Newsom’s office pointed to data from San Francisco’s bus ticket program for homeless people. But that defense doesn’t hold up. It shows just a small fraction, less than 7 percent, left for Texas, and doesn’t demonstrate that they originally came to San Francisco from that state.

In the end, we found Newsom made a ridiculous claim.

We rated it Pants on Fire.

Don’t blame California lawmakers for the state’s failures. They’re doing exactly what California residents want. People like Gavin Newsom are only fulfilling their promises to spend more, accomplish less, and keep the Democratic monopoly strong.

Dianne Feinstein’s comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Dianne Feinsteins comment on Dayton shooter skipped one important point

Gun control is the talk of the town as the week comes to a close. Well, that and Greenland. And Jeffrey Epstein. But the mass shootings two weeks ago has DC buzzing, media furiously reporting, and activists on both sides of the debate furiously Tweeting at each other. Senator Dianne Feinstein weighed in on the discussion by pointing out some important facts about the alleged Dayton shooter, Connor Betts.

Her facts are correct. Her analysis is off because it missed one important point. We’ll get to that in a minute, but let’s declare once and for all (though I’m sure I’ll have to repeat myself later) that the 2nd Amendment IS NOT ABOUT HUNTING OR HOME PROTECTION. Our right to keep and bear firearms was put into the Constitution by our founders because they recognized what could happen if the people had no recourse against an oppressive government. Just as Venezuelans didn’t realize they danger they were putting themselves into when they allowed their guns to be taken away, so too do many Americans put way too much trust in government.

The authoritarian left wants guns because they know they’ll never achieve their endgame as long as the people can defend themselves from tyranny.

Feinstein is correct that the Dayton shooter was able to cause an extreme amount of death and injury in a short period of time. Police were quick to respond, otherwise it could have been much worse. But as our EIC pointed out in a Tweet, Feinstein’s narrative is worthless when you look at it from the opposite perspective.

Gun control is not the solution to our mass shooting problem. If anything, gun control has enabled shooters to enact their crimes without fear of many “good guys with a gun” to stop them. We must never give up our 2nd Amendment rights.

President says AOC ‘fuming’ that Tlaib, Omar are becoming the faces of the party

President says AOC fuming that Tlaib Omar are becoming the faces of the party

President Trump took to Twitter to make fun of the opposition party as two of its most outspoken members, Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, continue making headlines and stirring up controversy. He even threw in an accusation against Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for good measure.

There are no indications that this is accurate, but that’s not the point. This isn’t hard policy or thoughtful analysis. It’s a petty jab, and while many Americans, including some of his fans, are against him taking shots at the opposition in such a manner, this is the society we live in and it includes a President who takes jabs on Twitter. You can stress over it or sit back and enjoy it. I choose the latter.

For AOC’s part, she took the jab with a chuckle.

Beyond the diversion this offers ahead of a weekend, reality is probably more closely reflected by the President’s Tweet than Democrats are comfortable admitting, at least the part about them being the face of the party. “The Squad” makes more headlines among the four of them than the rest of the Democrats combined, and this includes the powerful heads of committees who are actively investigating President Trump ahead of a possible impeachment.

Both Democrats and Republicans have different degrees of infatuation with “The Squad.” Are they a real threat to our republic, as many on both sides claim, or are they merely a diversion from real decisions being made in DC?
