Sen Elizabeth dinky-Warren Ambushed –
Exposed As Part Of Privileged Elite She Attacks
{rickwells.us} ~ Hypocrisy is just part of being a Democrat, pretending they’re something they’re not is what most of them base their political careers upon... Elizabeth dinky-Warren has proven over the years to be among the most blatant and offensive of all Democrat hypocrites, particularly adept at exploiting every opportunity to pander at a moment’s notice. She might have thought this interview was one of those opportunities. It wasn’t. dinky-Warren was ambushed with a question she couldn’t answer about the inconsistencies of her having considerable wealth as she makes her career railing against others who are like her. She chooses to attempt to draw a distinction of how much money she was born into as somehow being significant as to the legitimacy of her inclusion in the top one percent... https://rickwells.us/warren-ambushed-privileged-elite/

Plame Knew What She Was Tweeting
by Alan M. Dershowitz
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ Valerie Plame had to know what she was tweeting. Plame retweeted a virulently anti-Semitic article by a well-known bigot, which she characterized as "thoughtful."... Now she's trying to make excuses, but they don't wash. The article by Phillip Giraldi itself contains the usual anti-Semitic tropes: Jews are guilty of dual loyalty; they control politicians, the media and entertainment; they want the US to fight wars for the country to which they have real allegiance-- Israel; they are dangerous to America. Giraldi has been pushing this garbage for years and Plame is one of his fans... https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/11042/plame-knew-what-she-was-tw...

Oregon Democrats Cheer 
Taxpayer-Subsidized Death
by Jordan Candler:  “In such a divided country, it is rare to see that much joy on the faces of government officials,” Gary Bauer observes, referring to the above image. “What do you think these politicians are celebrating? A solution to homelessness? No. Lower taxes? Not a chance. New business development? Nope.” Disturbingly, what the picture manifests is the Democrat jubilation at Monday’s signing ceremony for HB 3391.

          In addition to mandating that insurers cover the abortion expenses of Oregon’s entire citizenry, this despicable piece of legislation — enacted into law last month by Democrat Gov. Kate Brown — also creates a $500,000 pool from which abortion-seeking illegal immigrants can scrounge. It’s an unprecedented step in the Left’s obsession with expanding abortion “rights,” so don’t be surprised to see other blue states follow.
          Sadly, these aren’t the first and only Democrats to celebrate such grotesque abortion practices. Two years ago, Planned Parenthood officials were caught fantasizing over how to spend the money they were collecting through fetal harvesting. Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council president Dr. Mary Gatter spelled out her atrocious motivation for her illegal actions: “I want a Lamborghini.”
          Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains medical director Dr. Savita Ginde remarked, “I think a per-item thing works a little better just because we can see how much [money] we can get out of it.” These and other distressing remarks and activity, revealed through Center for Medical Progress undercover videos, show Planned Parenthood workers not just nonchalant about the idea but even jovial as they swoon over the financial windfall.
          Some prominent Democrat politicians have tried to say that, though they are “pro-choice,” abortion is a tough topic. But deep down, they don’t really feel that way. Just look at the reactions of Oregon Democrats and Planned Parenthood officials. Having indifferent feelings about — or, worse yet, willingly paying for — a child’s death is no laughing matter. Oregon and Planned Parenthood show just how far down the dark path abortion will take you. And it will only get worse.  ~The Patriot Post

WE’VE GOT HIM WHERE HE WANTS US
by Burt Prelutsky


If Kim Jong-un is crazy, he’s as crazy as the proverbial fox. You know the one I mean, the fox who’s very chubby and has a bad haircut.

The West is so terrified of using a nuclear bomb, all the little bastard needs to do is threaten to take out Seoul or Tokyo or Guam, and the world is ready to pay him whatever ransom he might demand. Like one of those super villains who used to populate the James Bond movies, he could demand and collect a ransom in the trillions of dollars.

And once Iran’s mullahs saw how easy it is, they could follow suit by threatening to nuke London, Paris or Tel Aviv.

The whole point of having a nuclear arsenal is as a deterrent, but once everyone realizes that the so-called civilized nations are so terrified of being ostracized by the global community -- a community that just happens to include tyrants, despots and run-of-the-mill gangsters -- any creep can use it to his advantage.

Heck, Europe and the U.S. are more willing to let their citizens be butchered by Islamic terrorists than be seen acting decisively to evict their Muslim populations.  Donald Trump was derided for pointing out that Scotland Yard had the perpetrators of the recent train bombing on their radar, but did nothing to prevent it. Prime Minister Teresa May, who comes across more like a schoolmarm than as the leader of a once great nation, basically told him to go sit in the corner for being so boorish.

But the fact is, virtually every act of terrorism is carried out by a group of Islamic cretins who are already suspected by the authorities of being potential jihadists.  But, of course, until they blow up a train, a restaurant or a concert hall, there’s nothing that can be done about it. To me, that makes about as much sense as not killing a rattlesnake because it hasn’t yet bitten you.

When you’re engaged in a street fight with a bunch of goons, you don’t pause to consider what the Marquis of Queensbury would advise. If you’ve got a knife, you use it. If you have a gun, so much the better. If you have a nuke, best of all.

It used to be said that a conservative was a liberal who’d just been mugged. But we in the West have been mugged time and again, and some people suggest we simply grin and bear it, that it’s something they’re calling “the new normal.”

Worse yet, our leaders stick out their puny jaws and insist the crime will not go unpunished. I suppose there are sillier things they could say, but nothing pops readily to mind. Has it escaped their attention that most of the attacks are carried out by suicide bombers? What more are we going to do to those who believe they are abiding by the will of Allah?

I’m afraid that so long as we pretend that these are isolated crimes and not acts of war, a lot more trains will be blown up and a lot more innocent people are going to be butchered.

● I haven’t really admired a British prime minister since the Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, showed the world what Winston Churchill would have looked like in a skirt and sensible shoes.

Still, I think their set-up makes far more sense than our own, with politics left to the politicians and trivial matters left in the hands of the monarchy, who have been raised to deal with pomp and circumstance.

In the U.S., we feel compelled to marry the two -- most notably with the Kennedys, an aborted administration that tried to strike a balance between politics on the one hand, and fashion and the arts on the other, with Jack and Jackie reigning as the King and Queen.

And because the President and his brother, the Attorney General, were serial philanderers, they even managed to provide the hoi polloi with the requisite amount of sex scandals, just like their English cousins.

As a result, the country experienced culture shock when the Kennedys were succeeded by Lyndon Baines Johnson and his Lady Bird. It was as if the country had gone from Camelot to the Beverly Hillbillies in the blink of an eye.

● A reader recently asked me who my favorite movie actors have been. There have been many, including Spencer Tracy, Montgomery Clift, Alec Guinness, Gene Hackman, Michael Caine, Humphrey Bogart, William Holden, Claude Rains, Clifton Webb, Edward G. Robinson, Jimmy Stewart, Dana Andrews, Robert Duvall, Charles Coburn, Jean Arthur, Audrey Hepburn, Irene Dunne, Ginger Rogers and, if we limit it strictly to their comedies, Katharine Hepburn, Barbara Stanwyck and Meryl Streep.

But I also have a separate list. On it are those people who were unique.  So much so that I can’t even imagine other people in their roles: Charlie Chaplin, Steve Martin, Buster Keaton, Cary Grant and Laurel & Hardy.

● A friend of mine recently found himself in great pain. So, he went to see his doctor, who suggested he make an appointment with a cardiologist. But when he called to set one up, he was told that the cardiologist couldn’t see him until my friend's doctor sent over the necessary paperwork. Because the pain kept increasing, my friend called for an ambulance. He was checked into a hospital, where they spared him a lot of needless tests and went straight to a heart catheterization, which revealed three vessels that were 95% clogged.

They then did a lot of stuff with stents and balloons, which I’ll spare you, and within 48 hours, he was back on his feet and pain-free.

He said that this is the way the homeless among us get healthcare, and he suggested that we should, too.

I replied: “I suspect something similar would have taken place if you had been serving time in prison. And because the taxpayer would have been picking up the tab, no doubt they would have thrown in a face lift, a tummy tuck and a sex change operation.”

ALERT ALERT

Schumer Refusing To Help Border Kids
Wants To Hurt Trump Instead

The controversy over how underage illegal aliens are handled at the border is heating up — but Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer just rejected a good-faith proposal to fix the problem.

A growing number of people on both sides of the political aisle have expressed concern for border separations, which occur when migrants are caught breaking the law along the border while they have children with them, or when the often exploitative relationship between adults and minors at the border cannot be established.

A vast amount of mis-information and outright lying about the situation has muddied the water, making it tough to understand the situation in its entirety.

Both liberals and conservatives, however, have voiced their support for a better system that results in fewer family separations, and even President Donald Trump has indicated that he is willing to stand with Congress if they change the law.

Shockingly, however, it looks like one of the most well-known faces of the Democratic party isn’t willing to take action, and is instead playing politics in order to attack Trump.

On Tuesday, Schumer openly rejected a Republican proposal to fix the immigrant separation problem at the legislative level, and instead whined about the president.

“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer stated, according to The Hill.

“Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it,” he complained.

Democrats Reject Bill To Keep Families Together At Border – Schumer Says He “Wants To Keep Focus On Trump”

Think about that for a second: The president’s job is to execute existing laws. The legislature’s job is to change or enact new laws when needed.

A senator elected to the legislature for exactly that purpose is now refusing to do his job and pass legislation, while simultaneously blaming the president for enforcing the existing laws, as he is sworn to do.

If there was any doubt that Schumer and the Democrats are playing politics instead of trying to actually help migrant families, the senator made his intentions clear: Obstruct and point fingers at Trump.

“Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump,” The Hill explained.

Make no mistake: The Democrats dragging their feet and refusing to back legislation already drafted by Republicans will prolong the problems at the border.

“Schumer’s opposition to a legislative fix means there likely won’t be a quick end to the emotional images of immigrant children being separated from their families unless Trump backs down,” The Hill reported.

“Democrats want to keep the pressure on Trump instead of having Congress assume responsibility for the growing crisis,” the news outlet continued.

Again: There’s a solution ready to go, with Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ready to support it. Yet Democrats like Schumer apparently believe that scoring political points against Trump is more important than helping broken families on the border, even as their own liberal voters demand action.

“Congress alone can fix it,” stated Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday.

“I support, and all of the senators of the Republican conference support, a plan that keeps families together,” McConnell agreed.

“We need to fix the problem and it requires a legislative solution,” he said.

Yet Democrats refuse to budge.

This “do nothing but blame Trump” response from the left should prove beyond a doubt that all the tears and hand-wringing from liberals are disingenuous. They’re for show. If it was truly about helping innocent kids at the border, Schumer and his fellow Democrats could act right now.

If their priority was actually to solve the problem and help broken families, scoring points against Trump shouldn’t even be a concern. Even if they believed he was being stubborn on the issue, they could take the high road by doing their jobs and supporting bipartisan legislation.

They don’t, because solving the problem was never their goal. They are playing political games and using devastated children as pawns, while pretending that the president is the monster.

That’s sick… and the American people need to see exactly who is doing the obstruction.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
