Bill and Hillary About to Go Away Forever

Are Christmas wishes across the United States about to come true? The Daily Wire’s Joseph Curl thinks so. From the plummeting ticket prices for their speaking tour to the end of the media lovefest with the Clintons to 2020, it looks like Team Clinton may be in for a big disappointment in the new year. Curl predicts the long media love affair with Bill and Hill may finally be coming to an ignoble end. Couple that with the fact that the Clinton Foundation is all but dead and that as many as two dozen Democrats may be vying for president in 2020 portends the final demise of Hillary’s political prospects. Merry Christmas!

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Yes, people, the day is coming, and it’s coming fast: We’re almost done for good with Bill and Hillary Clinton.

How can we be sure, you ask? Here’s how: Tickets to see them live and hear them blab about their lives are selling for the cost of a Big Mac meal at McDonald’s.

Not enough proof? Well, there’s this, too: New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd is finally sick of them.

The former first couple opened a 13-city speaking tour late last month with a premiere event in Toronto (why they think anyone in Canada wants to hear them whine about Hillary’s crushing defeat in the 2016 presidential election is anybody’s guess). They pulled just 3,000 people to an arena that seats 19,000.

Then they took their road show, “An Evening With the Clintons,” to Montreal, but they fared little better (and not for lack of trying: In a case of classic Clinton pandering, each said that Canada was superior to America).

Sexual Misconduct Allegations Spur Resignation of CA Dem Party Chair

California Democratic Party chair Eric Bauman – a kingmaker in the Golden State’s politics – resigned Thursday in the wake of several claims of sexual misconduct made against him. According to the Los Angeles Times, 10 party staff members and political activists claimed Bulgar made vulgar sexual comments as well as unwanted advances and acts of intimidation at party events and professional settings. In a statement to the LA Times, Bauman said, “I have made the realization that in order for those to whom I may have caused pain and who need to heal, for my own health, and in the best interest of the party that I love and to which I have dedicated myself for more than 25 years, it is in everyone’s best interest for me to resign my position as chair of the California Democratic Party.” Where’s Kamala Harris?

On Thursday. the head of the California Democratic Party resigned after there were multiple claims of sexual misconduct made against him. Eric Bauman released a statement to the Los Angeles Times that said, “I have made the realization that in order for those to whom I may have caused pain and who need to heal, for my own health, and in the best interest of the party that I love and to which I have dedicated myself for more than 25 years, it is in everyone’s best interest for me to resign my position as chair of the California Democratic Party.”

By Monday, the party had launched an investigation into the complaints and Bauman took a leave of absence.”

On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reported that 10 party staff members and political activists reported Bauman had made vulgar sexual comments and participated in unwanted touching or physical intimidation in professional settings.

Dems: Climate Change “Not Debatable”

With the newly released 1,656-page National Climate Assessment in hand, Democrats are throwing down the gauntlet in their championing of “climate change” (aka global warming) with their new House majority in January. The report purportedly demonstrates that “many lines of independent evidence demonstrate that the rapid warming of the past half-century is due primarily to human activities,” and Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) is now claiming, “Climate change is not debatable, and no region of our country and no sector of our economy will be spared.” He continued: “While the Trump administration and congressional Republicans continue to deny that climate change exists, Democrats will use our new House Majority to take aggressive action to reduce climate pollution and help communities build their resilience to the impacts of climate change.” So a bunch of bureaucrats got together and spent a bunch of taxpayer dollars to argue what they had already been arguing: raise taxes. Funny how that works.

Here’s more from PJ Media…

WASHINGTON — Democrats vowed that they’ll use their new House majority next year to force action on climate change in the wake of a new report from 13 federal agencies that paints a bleak picture of the current and expected effects of global warming.

The National Climate Assessment released Friday is an interagency effort including more than 300 experts guided by a 60-member federal advisory committee. The report was then subjected to peer review and studied by federal agencies and a panel of the National Academy of Sciences.

“Climate change, once considered an issue for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present,” began the report’s introduction. “…This National Climate Assessment concludes that the evidence of human-induced climate change continues to strengthen and that impacts are increasing across the country. Americans are noticing changes all around them. Summers are longer and hotter, and extended periods of unusual heat last longer than any living American has ever experienced. Winters are generally shorter and warmer. Rain comes in heavier downpours.”

Twitter Targets Feminist Trans Opponents

The Left is eating its own after Meghan Murpher, founder of the Feminist Current website and podcast and a self-described socialist and radical feminist, was banned by Twitter because she dared to criticize the transgender movement. In 2017 Murphy testified before the Canadian Senate that “the rights of women and girls are being pushed aside to accommodate a [transgender] trend.” Murphy was banned several times by Twitter in the wake of those comments until she removed “hateful” tweets, such as asking “How are transwomen not men? What is the difference between men and transwomen?” In other words, she dared to question the notion of transgender dogma. Now most recently she is locked out of Twitter for arguing the obvious-“men aren’t women”-which got more than 20,000 likes before her handle was shut down. We’re having difficulty with our schadenfreude this week.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Meghan Murphy, founder of the Feminist Current website and podcast, has been suspended from Twitter.

Murphy, a self-described socialist and radical feminist, has been an outspoken critic of the transgender activist movement, claiming that it has an outsized sociopolitical influence, especially in her native Canada.

In 2017, Murphy testified before the Canadian Senate against the C-16 pronoun legislation, stating in part that “the rights of women and girls are being pushed aside to accommodate a trend,” and that “treating gender as though it is either internal or a personal choice is dangerous and completely misunderstands how and why women are oppressed under patriarchy as a class of people.”

In August, Murphy’s Twitter account was locked after she sent out several tweets criticizing Lisa Kreut, a transgender individual who allegedly “targeted Feminist Current’s ad revenue and led efforts to have Vancouver Rape Relief blacklisted at the 2016 BCFED Convention.”

Trump: ‘Time for Action’ for Wall Funding

President Trump used Thanksgiving vacation to underscore the need for border security legislation. POTUS took to Twitter to argue, “Fix the order, for one and for all, NOW!” He told reporters that a partial shutdown could happing if his border security proposals are resisted. The migrants push along the border with Mexico is pouring gasoline on the fire of the debate over a wall. Our bet is on Democrats in the House to stonewall [pun intended], setting up the 2020 fight.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

President Donald Trump urged Republicans and Democrats to come together to pass border security legislation.
“After 40 years of talk, it is finally time for action,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Fix the Border, for once and for all, NOW!”

The president indicated that he wants the package to include funding for his long-promised wall on the southern border.

On Thanksgiving, Trump told reporters that a partial government shutdown over security funding may happen if Democrats continue to resist his border security proposals.

“The wall is just a part of border security, a very important part, the most important part,” he said. “But could there be a shutdown? There certainly could, and it will be about border security.”

Caravan Guns for the Border

About 150 migrants from the Central American caravan charged the U.S.-Mexico border toting signs that read, “La paz y Dios” within 500 feet of American soil. The white signs were purportedly intended to signify peace. The response came after President Trump closed the border in order to better secure it against the caravan’s determined charged. The question in the coming days is whether Mexico will be able to control security inside their own country. We’re betting not.

Here’s more from Fox News

A group of about 150 migrants carrying white flags that read, “La paz y Dios,” or “Peace and God are With Us,” separated from the larger caravan near Southern California and inched within 500 feet of the U.S., a report Thursday said.

The migrants said they are carrying the white flags to show that they are peaceful, and will attempt to present themselves as asylum seekers near Baja, Calif., The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

President Trump on Thursday threatened to close the border with Mexico if his administration determines that Mexico has lost control of the situation. The Union-Tribune reported that Mexican federal police held a barrier near a pedestrian crossing and urged the migrants to apply for jobs in Tijuana. Police claimed there are thousands of jobs in the city. Federal police were dressed in riot gear and prevented the caravan from getting closer to the U.S.

Carlos Lopez, a Honduran who was leading the small group, told the paper that the conditions in Mexico are horrible. He said there are sick children and women and children are forced to remain outside in the elements.

Purple Heart Veteran Rises above SNL’s Mockery

Texas Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives and former U.S. Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw lost an eye while serving in Afghanistan. “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson considered his eyepatch fair game, saying in a skit that Crenshaw looked like “a hitman in a porno movie.” “I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever,” Davidson continued. Crenshaw tweeted in reply: “Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.” Here’s the lesson from SNL: it’s okay to offend folks as long as they’re on the right half of the political spectrum. If they’re on the left half, you’re a racist/sexist hater.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Dan Crenshaw, a Republican candidate running for an open congressional seat in Texas, has responded after he was mocked by “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson for wearing an eyepatch. Crenshaw lost an eye after an IED exploded while he was serving in Afghanistan.

Davidson had said during a “Weekend Update” bit that Crenshaw looked like “a hitman in a porno movie.”

“I’m sorry, I know he lost his eye in war, or whatever,” Davidson continued.

Crenshaw took the joke in stride, tweeting Sunday morning:

“Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope @nbcsnl recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.”

Ben & Jerry’s Facing Internal “Resistance” to Anti-Trump Flavor

Ben & Jerry’s independently owned Israel franchise will not be manufacturing or selling the company’s limited edition Pecan Resist flavor, which the company says “supports groups creating a more just and equitable nation for us all, and who are fighting President Trump’s regressive agenda.” More alarming for its Israel franchise is that the proceeds from this left-inspired flavor will go to the Women’s March and other anti-Israel groups. Women’s March leaders include Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, who are rabidly anti-Israel. Mallory, it’s worth noting, is an enthusiastic supporter of the hate-inciting Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and the Palestinian Liberation Organization.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

TEL AVIV – Ben & Jerry’s controversial decision to release a new anti-Trump flavor in collaboration with, among others, Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour, has prompted the company’s Israel franchise, which is owned independently, to distance itself from the ice cream giant.
The limited edition flavor, entitled Pecan Resist, “supports groups creating a more just and equitable nation for us all, and who are fighting President Trump’s regressive agenda,” the American company said in a statement Tuesday.

Proceeds from the new flavor will go to four groups, including Women’s March, whose leaders are rabidly anti-Israel. Linda Sarsour, who was pictured in a tweet with the company’s eponymous founders, has in the past accused Israel of “apartheid” and shared a stage with Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh.

Biden: White Male Republican Should Be Beat Up

Forget peace and unity in the wake of the pipebomb mailer and the synagogue shooting. “Crazy uncle” Joe Biden at a rally for Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) called for the trade union president to beat up Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) to “show him a threshold of pain.” This statement from the self-proclaimed moral police and tolerant left was only made more awkward with its placement within a John Wayne movie reference, which was no doubt a desperate bid to try and “localize” the progressive left’s message for North Dakota’s rural voters. Biden’s declaration was made, ironically, the same week that Nancy Pelosi declared Democrats should win the House in order to prevent political violence.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

Former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden suggested at a rally for Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) that the trade union president beat up Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND), saying, “show him a threshold of pain.”

“As my brother, who loves to use lines from movies, a John Wayne movie, there’s a good line in a movie, a John Wayne movie where the Indian chief turns to John Wayne and says ‘this is a lying dog-faced pony soldier,'” Biden rambled.

“Well, let me tell ya, these guys are [inaudible], they just stand up, flat out, stand up and say things that are absolutely mind-boggling,” Biden continued. “I love this one on trade, this I love, and by the way, I told you I come from an agricultural state, I don’t know how you can possibly get elected in an agricultural state with the things he is saying.”

“But, but, we’re nearing the twentieth week of zero soybean orders to the Pacific and Northwest China and your guys calls farmers’ concerns ‘hysteria,’ it says they don’t have a very high threshold for pain,” Biden added.

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.
