    Let's start keeping a running thread where we cite examples of elites who demonstrate extreme hypocrisy in the areas of national lockdown and social distancing. I'll start us off with these. - PA Governor Tom Wolf who has arbitrarily closed thousands of small businesses as "non-essential" with the stroke of a pen, but has granted an exemption to his own small business (a cabinet shop). Because that kitchen remodel that you've been procrastinating on since 2007 simply can't wait! For extra credit Tommy the Commie has closed the state office which administers the Freedom of Information Act so that none...
  • Dems Who Impeached Trump as Coronavirus Spread Now Want to Investigate His Coronavirus Response

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), perhaps the central figure in Democrats' impeachment of President Donald Trump, began circulating draft legislation to investigate Trump's response to the coronavirus. In his press release on Friday, Schiff claimed the investigation is "not an exercise in casting blame or scoring political points," but Republicans are naturally skeptical. On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced a new coronavirus oversight committee, headed by House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who last month said the pandemic gives Democrats "a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision." After all, Democrats stalled the $2 trillion stimulus bill...

    Oscar and Grammy-winning singer and global warming activist John Legend and his model wife Chrissy Teigen flew 500 miles on a private jet to dine at a restaurant for their Valentine’s Day date, despite Legend’s insistence that the planet is in the midst of a “climate crisis.” John Legend and Teigen reportedly traveled via private jet to grab dinner at the French Laundry restaurant in Yountville, California, which is roughly 500 miles from their home. Teigen documented the Valentine’s Day trip in an Instagram story, which showed the couple on their way to the restaurant in the luxury jet. The...
  • Trump Derangement Syndrome Fuels Liberal Hypocrisy

    Hypocrisy in politics is as old as politics itself. People who preach to others about how things should be or what others should do rarely live up to those standards themselves. What I’ve always found odd about public hypocrisy is how these hypocrites act as though no one will ever pick up on it. Notice who or what they’ve done before doesn’t match with what they’re preaching now. In the past, hypocrisy was easier to get away with. Before the Internet, much of what someone in the public eye said was long-forgotten by the time they’d done their 180, relegated...

    Democrats' claim that the Trump administration broke America's promise to protect Ukraine from Russia by withholding military aid is just an example of the party's hypocrisy, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, claimed Thursday. "The Democratic House ManagersÂ’ hypocrisy is on full display," Ernst wrote on Twitter on Thursday evening, after Day 3 of Trump's Senate impeachment trial. "TheyÂ’ve spent most of their time lecturing the Senate on aid to Ukraine, yet four of them voted AGAINST legislation that provided the very same aid theyÂ’re lecturing us on." Joni Ernst âś” @SenJoniErnst The Democratic House ManagersÂ’ hypocrisy is on full display: theyÂ’ve...

    Thirty years after celebrating the fall of the Berlin Wall, Europe has gone on a wall-building spree. In its next budget cycle (2021-27), the EU plans to spend €34.9bn ($38.4bn) on border security, to help manage the tens of thousands of migrants trying to enter the region every year. As a result, business is booming for Europe’s border security industry. A 2019 report by the Transnational Institute has revealed that a small cohort of European arms companies profit handsomely from the huge growth in the EU’s border budgets. These large companies are increasingly influential in shaping EU policy and encouraging...

    Congressional Democrats have fiercely criticized Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and other top Republicans in recent weeks for what they say is a lack of impartiality regarding President Trump’s looming trial in the Senate. But the proceedings of the last impeachment have proved a recurring headache for some of these Democrats, whose past comments on then-President Bill Clinton's trial have come back to haunt them -- and in some cases undercut their message today. From Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, both from New York, congressional Democrats are being reminded that they once made...
  • Vox Cheered California’s Gig Economy Law, Then Fired Freelance Workers [liberal hypocrisy at its finest]

    Vox Media rooted for the passage of a California gig economy bill that is now forcing Vox to lay off hundreds of its own freelance workers. * Vox Media is laying off hundreds of freelance workers as California’s gig economy rights bill takes effect. * Vox cheered for the gig economy bill on its own news pages. Now it’s letting freelance workers go because of the new law. * This is a painfully ironic, cautionary tale against the broader labor movement represented by politicians like Sen. Elizabeth Warren. California AB-5 takes effect in 2020 after passage by the California state...

    (h/t bitt) Q is the result of the sacrifices and commitment of countless patriots to win back our captured country from the Deep State and achieve the transformation President Trump promised in this campaign video. President Trump has said the awakening of the public is key to this transformation. Q describes this awakening as follows: "The Great Awakening ('Freedom of Thought’), was designed and created not only as a backchannel to the public (away from the longstanding ‘mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media) to endure future events through transparency and regeneration of individual thought (breaking the...

The house in New North End is one of three homes that he and his wife own. Burlington VT is 85% white and less than 5% black. Unlike the Old North End, which is diverse, the New North End has an older and more conservative population. The average household income is $80,000, and a number of the elected officials have been Republicans. Despite Bernie’s socialist image, he chose to...

    A Starbucks barista in England was caught on video trying to boot a homeless man as he chowed down on a meal purchased by a kind-hearted bystander outside the coffee chain. The footage, obtained by The Sun, shows the unidentified drifter, dressed in an open shirt, sitting outside a Starbucks in Southend, Essex, after a Good Samaritan spent $10 to buy him food after seeing the man savaging nearby. “Yeah, he can eat somewhere else,” a barista told the man and Sajid Kahhllon, who paid for the sandwich and chocolate cake moments earlier. “But he bought the food, he paid...

    A gas shortage threatens the Long Island region,” bleat six Long Island state senators, all Democrats, in a letter pleading for approval of a pipeline proposed to fix the problem — belatedly admitting that the policies they’ve long favored don’t work for their own constituents. This year, Sens. Todd Kaminsky, John Brooks, James Gaughran, Anna Kaplan, Monica Martinez and Kevin Thomas all voted for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Green New Deal law, whose very purpose is to further crimp energy supplies, and for a $100 million hike in taxes on energy. And, as Senate GOP leader John Flanagan (their fellow Long...

    Unmarked buildings, quiet legal help for accused priests Stripped of their collars and cassocks, they went unnoticed in this tiny Midwestern town as they were escorted into a dingy warehouse across from an elementary school playground. Neighbors had no idea some of the dressed-down clergymen dining at local restaurants might have been accused sexual predators. They had been brought to town by a small, nonprofit group called Opus Bono Sacerdotii. For nearly two decades, the group has operated out of a series of unmarked buildings in rural Michigan, providing money, shelter, transport, legal help and other support to hundreds, perhaps...

Daniel DiNardo downplaying monsignor's abuse of trust and power The Catholic hierarchy's use of the "consensual sex" card to justify priestly misconduct has been thrown on the table once again, this time after a Texas woman was taken advantage of emotionally, spiritually and physically by a priest serving as her spiritual counselor.  Msgr. Frank Rossi Laura Pontikes, a 55-year-old construction executive in Texas, had been suffering from long-term depression and problems in her marriage when she sought help from Msgr. Frank Rossi, then-vicar general and deputy to Cdl.

  • Media, Activists Push Abortion on Mother’s Day: ‘Moms Deserve Better’

    Abortion warps one of the most natural loves in the world – that of a mother for her child. But many in the media, along with abortion activists and organizations, missed the irony as they took advantage of Mother’s Day to call for unrestricted abortion.The pro-life movement recognizes that motherhood begins at conception, when another human life begins to grow inside of a woman. But, according to organizations like Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, abortion allows women who are already pregnant to choose motherhood.“Happy Mother's Day!” Planned Parenthood Action tweeted on May 12. “It’s important now more than ever to...

    As activists around the world recently celebrated Earth Day with warnings about the awful state of our planet, now seems like the right time to share the good news that actually -- contrary to countless dire predictions -- we're not running out of resources. In fact, the late economist and scholar Julian Simon was right: People again and again have innovated "their way out of resource shortages." As Mark Perry of the American Enterprise Institute reminds us in an article about "18 spectacularly wrong predictions made around the time of the first Earth Day in 1970," back in 1969, Stanford...

    As former Vice President Joe Biden’s camp scrambles to contain any political damage over his past behavior with women, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has some words of advice: Keep your distance. “Join the straight-arm club,” Pelosi told a breakfast hour Washington event on Tuesday. In other words, keep your handshakes at arms’ length and don’t be touchy-feely. “Just pretend you have a cold and I have a cold,” Pelosi said. Pelosi, D-Calif., told the event, which was sponsored by Politico, that Biden “has to understand that in the world we are in now people’s space is important to them and...
