Warren Keeps Clinging to Her 1/1024 “Native” Roots

U.S. Senator Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren (D-MA) just doesn’t know when to move on to the next sales pitch. With just three weeks to go before ballots are cast in the 2018 midterms, Warren is now trying to portray herself as a victim of President Trump when all she wanted to do was be “transparent.” According to a Boston Globe report, Fauxcahontas only wanted to stop President Trump’s (and her opponents’) “constant taunting.” Of course, she has only fanned the flames and now says there is a difference between identifying as Native American and claiming to be part of a Native American group, which is her best defense against the outright rejection of belonging she received from the Cherokee Nation. It’s a good reminder that all lies eventually come back around.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who claimed to be Native American when a DNA study showed she has as little as .09% Indian blood, is still trying to explain away her assertion.

Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat running for re-election who President Trump has dubbed “Pocahontas” for her claim, released the results of the DNA test on Sunday with about three weeks to go before Election Day in an attempt to “begin deflecting the constant taunting from the president and her Senate challengers,” The Boston Globe reported.

“I have an election,” Warren said. “Donald Trump goes in front of crowds multiple times a week to attack me. Both of my opponents have made the same attack. I got this analysis back, and I made it public.”

The move turned out to be a PR disaster. While the mainstream media happily went along with the notion that 1/1,024 heritage actually makes someone Native American, many mocked Warren for the bizarre claim. Trump himself joined in, writing on Twitter: “Now that her claims of being of Indian heritage have turned out to be a scam and a lie, Elizabeth Warren should apologize for perpetrating this fraud against the American Public.

Schumer Blames “Climate Change” for Hurricanes

Let no manufactured crisis go to waste because Senate Minority Grand Wizard Chuck Schumer (D-NY) isn’t. He went above and beyond this week in offering thoughts and prayers to those in the path of Hurricane Michael in hopes of advancing the left’s climate change agenda. Schumer droned on the senate floor that “if we did more on climate change, we’d have fewer of these hurricanes and other types of storms.” To make his case, Schumer cited a new UN report saying there’s a “12-year window to make far-reaching and unprecedented changes” to avert cataclysmic global catastrophe. The trouble is there’s virtually zero science to back up this assertion. Millennia before cars, coal, and carbon dioxide were concerns, hurricanes were ravaging coastlines. They will continue to do so climate accords or not.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Amid daylight assessments of the toll inflicted on the southeast by Hurricane Michael, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on the Senate floor today that “if we did more on climate change, we’d have fewer of these hurricanes and other types of storms.”

“Everyone knows that, except for a few. Why? Why won’t they admit the truth? Maybe there are two words that explain it: oil industry,” he said.

Michael made landfall close to a Category 5 storm on Wednesday afternoon, ripping apart Florida panhandle buildings and severely damaging Tyndall Air Force Base.

Two deaths have been reported due to the hurricane, which inflicted heavy winds and rain across Georgia and the Carolinas this morning on its march up the coast. More than 900,000 homes and businesses were without power this morning.

“This year has seen huge a number of powerful storms and hurricanes buffet the Atlantic seaboard and the Gulf. Harvey, Irma, Maria, Florence, and now Michael have wrought severe damages.

Ginsburg Forgets 14th Amendment

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, was literally handed a pocket copy of the U.S. Constitution during a speech at the national Woman’s Party in late August after she forgot the contents of the 14th Amendment and her own copy of the Constitution that she proclaims to carry with her. The brain freeze happened after she was asked about the Equal Rights Amendment in the context of the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument. One would think no notes would be required to answer what should be a softball question. Perhaps it’s time to reconsider lifetime appointments.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg forgot the contents of the 14th Amendment while speaking to the National Woman’s Party in late August and needed an audience member to give her a copy of the Constitution so she could remember what it said.

The incident happened on August 26, 2018, when Ginsburg was asked to talk about the Equal Rights Amendment while addressing the audience at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument.

“So you’ve written a few articles over the years about the need for the ERA … and you’ve of course noted that the ERA would give the Supreme Court a more secure handle in its support for equality,” said Jill C. Morrison, Executive Director of the Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship at Georgetown Law.

“But as you mentioned, as both a litigator and in your time on the court, you’ve actually built precedent in that area,” Morrison continued. “So could you explain why you believe that the ERA is still as needed today as it ever was?”

Antifa Calls for “Revolutionary Violence”

Clearly, the Los Angeles-based Antifa group has lost its grip on reality, believing it now has the prerogative to incite a “sea of armed masses” to wage “revolutionary violence against enemies of the people” and ultimately “take power in America.” The bilingual tweets from the Maoist group “Serve the People – Los Angeles (STPLA)” were sent out while the red bandana wearers attempted to rally the masses to release an illegal immigrant detained by ICE. This group of self-proclaimed anti-fascists are reliving the very fascists animus that gave way to WWI. But of course they have no historical context to recognize that theres’s “nothing new under the sun.”

Here’s more from PJ Media…

A Los Angeles-based antifa group is calling for a “sea of armed masses” to use “revolutionary violence against the enemies of the people” and ultimately “take power” in America, Far Left Watch reports.

The revolutionary Maoist group Serve the People — Los Angeles (STPLA) made the call during a recent demonstration in South Central Los Angeles, where “dozens of protesters” wearing red bandannas and carrying STPLA flags, banners, and a Trump piñata-effigy “rallied the masses” to demand the release of Gladis Hernandez, an illegal immigrant woman who is being detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

On Sunday, according to the far-left Incendiary News Service, the agitators marched and chanted, “La migra, la policia, la misma porqueria!” (“ICE, the police, the same sh*t!”) and “F*ck ICE! F*ck the pigs!”

United Airlines Gives Free Flights to Illegal Aliens

United Airlines is continuing the leftward trend of the big airlines against public opinion in hopes of winning more favor with travelers on the left and blue coasts after an announcement that they will fly illegal immigrants across the border. This comes on the heels of Delta’s rebuff by the Georgia state legislature after ending their collaboration with the NRA. If things keep moving in this direction, we’re wondering whether it might be time to resurrect Trump Airlines.

Here’s more from Daily Caller…

United Airlines revealed the company will provide complimentary flights to families who were separated as they illegally crossed over the United States border.

United is partnering with FWD.us, an advocacy group known for defending illegal immigrant rights, which made the announcement Wednesday.

In a statement on Facebook, FWD.us welcomed United to the partnership and thanked the airline for joining the ‘Flights For Families’ campaign. The effort is working to reunite parents that have been separated from their children when they  were detained illegally hopping the border. United will be donating flights to rejoin the families.

“A growing community of support is coming together to reunite families who were separated at the border. We are so thankful and happy to announce that United Airlines is jumping in and helping,” FWD.us’s statement read. “Thanks to this partnership with United, we are able to provide travel to the recently reunited immigrant families to get to their next destination with dignity.”

Irony: Occupy ICE Erects Wall to Prevent Eviction

In a world constantly flirting with cynicism, a little bit of fun irony gets us through the day, and the Portland “Occupy ICE” movement did not disappoint. After being served by authorities with an eviction notice, protesters in the movement refused to vacate the premises and, instead, erected…wait for it…a wall. That’s right, but wait, there’s more. They then stationed ‘border guards’ to keep watch around their barricades. The moral of the story: walls are perfectly fine so long as they’re protecting leftists alone. But national security walls? That’s a moral outrage. Ahem.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

On Wednesday, The Daily Wire reported that “Occupy ICE” protesters in Portland had been given eviction notices and were ordered to pack up their belongings and demonstrate against vague notions of tyranny and oppression elsewhere.

But while some indeed cleared out (in a manner of speaking, at least), others decided to stay and fight, erecting — ironically — a “border wall” to enclose the Occupy ICE PDX encampment and stationing “border guards” around their tiny independent nation.

No, really. The border wall, which is in fact quite high (perhaps, say, to prevent border jumpers), went up over the weekend.

On Wednesday, bystanders noticed that Occupy ICE PDX had furthered militarized their border, stationing a “border patrol” around the perimeter and charging their new “wall guards” with monitoring their makeshift border wall around the clock.

California Bans Plastic Straws, Fines Violators

We were just recovering from our guffaw over Starbucks’ attempt to appease Mother Earth by implementing strawless lids, which actually require more plastic, and then California decided to ante up. Santa Barbara has decided that plastic straws may very well bring about the end of the world, and city leaders are aiming to save humanity. According to new city regulations, a violator (i.e., someone using a straw) could be fined up to a grand or even imprisoned for six months. Meanwhile, back in Russia…

Here’s more from Fox News…

Sippers, beware.

A California coastal city has become the latest municipality to ban plastic straws, enacting what is potentially the strictest plastic prohibition in the country.

Santa Barbara earlier this month passed the ordinance authorizing hefty fines and even a possible jail sentence for violators who dole out plastic straws at restaurants, bars and other food establishments.

According to the ordinance, violators on their first offense will be given a written warning notice. But the second time a purveyor of plastic straws defies the ban is when the heavy hand of the law could clamp down.

In that case, the ordinance cites penalties from the city’s municipal code for a “fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000), imprisonment for a term not exceeding six (6) months.”

In comparison, Seattle, which in the beginning of July became the first major city in the U.S. to ban plastic straws, only fines businesses $250 per offense.

Parents Fighting for Rights in LGBT-Friendly Schools

Parents in Delaware are taking on the transgender agenda at local schools with more than 11,000 filing objections to the Delaware Education Department’s Regulation 225 which sought to allow children to switch their gender at school without parental notification, let alone consent. In the midst of the parental outrage, the Department of Education and Indian River School District’s board of education unanimously voted against the original version, rewriting the decree to put parents back in the decision-making loop, though ‘trans’ students still have the choice of which locker rooms or bathrooms to use. Once upon a time, parents were the stewards of their children’s future;  now they’re just bystanders for the government’s cradle to grave nanny state.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

Larry Mayo, a grandfather with two relatives who are gay, spoke out against the Delaware Education Department’s Regulation 225 when it was released for public debate last November. The regulation was a bureaucratic move to allow school recognition of children wanting to change their gender without notifying their parents.

“The authority to raise children is not for the state. It’s for the parent,” said Mayo during an Indian River School District Board of Education meeting.

In the face of a firestorm of protest — more than 11,000 people filed objections with the Department of Education and the Indian River School District’s board of education voted unanimously to oppose the original version — Regulation 225 has been rewritten to put parents back at the top of the decision-making process. However, the updated version of the regulation still instructs school districts to make sure kids who decide their birth gender is no longer a good fit can use the locker rooms and bathrooms of their choice.

“Transgender youth deserve equal protection under the law. They don’t deserve special protection,” Mayo added. “I got harassed because I was 5 feet, 3 inches in the ninth grade. I dealt with it.”

Like Mayo, Linda Schroeder told the Indian River Board of Education her disagreement with Regulation 225 didn’t come from a dislike or fear of transgender people.

“We are not against a community or a person for their choice that they make,” Schroeder said. “The Department of Education wants to take our rights away as a parent – not knowing these things that are detrimental to our children – and give the authority to somebody else to decide what is best of your child.”

SCOTUS Protests Already Begin to Backfire

The pre-planned, pre-printed and otherwise over-organized protests by the left witnessed in the lead up to and in the wake of President Trump’s Supreme Court nomination made clear that this wasn’t about one person. This was #FakeProtest and its target wasn’t strictly Brett Kavanaugh — or even Roe v. Wade dissidents. Instead, they were and are about resisting the authority of a Republican President of the United States. But their attempts to undermine Kavanaugh are so far-flung that even liberals are beginning to backpedal. And the result will be that his confirmation will quickly become inevitable as Democrat Senators up for reelection won’t want to be associated with the nutters.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

President Trump has nominated his pick for the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, and predictably, there is much weeping and gnashing of teeth from the left. The womyn are lamenting all those abortions they want to have but maybe won’t be able to have if SCOTUS overturns Roe v. Wade, leaving abortion to the states. In their minds, this means that they would be automatically dragged into an alley (pregnant or not) and assaulted with a wire hanger by Kavanaugh himself, or something. I really can’t figure it out. All I hear is a bunch of caterwauling histrionics about how they love to rip human babies into bloody pieces. Yay, rights!

These protests, we are to believe, spontaneously “broke out” just as the president announced his pick.

Yeah, suuuuure.

Too bad we’ve already seen the pre-planning all over Facebook, geniuses! This one, in particular, is my favorite of all the hysterical propaganda. Here we have a cartoon of Justice Roberts swearing in a KKK hood-wearing Supreme Court justice. Or is it supposed to be Trump? Who knows, but have they no shame? 

“Trump will announce his new Supreme Court Justice nomination tomorrow, Monday, at 9pm, according to new reports,” said RefuseFascism.org. “Whoever he chooses will be dangerous for humanity. We must NOT allow this regime to lock in place a fully fascist Supreme Court that strips away the rights of women, Black people, LGBTQ people, immigrants, the environment, and so much more.”

Trump Offers Warren A Million for Proof

President Trump is still not finished taking Sen. Elizabeth ‘Fauxcahontas’ Warren (D-MA) to task over her alleged Native American heritage. While on the campaign trail stumping for Republicans, he offered a million greenbacks if Warren would take a genetics/ancestry test to ‘learn her heritage’. Warren has made a career of trolling Republicans with her socialist-light agenda. Now the shoe’s on the other foot. 

Here’s more from The Hill…

President Trump said Thursday that if he were facing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) during a debate, he would offer her $1 million to take a test to prove her Native American heritage.

“But let’s say I’m debating Pocahontas, I’ll do this,” Trump said during a campaign rally in Great Falls, Mont., referring to Warren by the racially charged nickname he gave her during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“I promise you I’ll do this, you know those little kits they sell on television for $2? Learn your heritage,” Trump said.

“I’m going to get one of those little kits and in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims she’s of Indian heritage — because her mother said she has high cheekbones, that’s her only evidence,” Trump continued.

“We will take that little kit, we have to do it gently because we’re in the “Me Too” generation, we have to be very gentle,” Trump said mocking the movement that seeks to expose sexual misconduct in media, entertainment and politics.

“And we will say, ‘I will give you a million dollars, paid for by Trump, to your favorite charity if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian,” Trump said. “And we’ll see what she does. I have a feeling she will say no but we will hold it for the debates.”
