    Just when you thought the White House's messaging on the devastating Maui fire couldn't get any worse, Karine Jean-Pierre comes busting through the wall like the Kool-Aid man. Joe Biden had already made a mess of things multiple times by the time the press secretary took the podium. As RedState reported, when asked by reporters on Sunday about the situation in Maui, including the federal government's response, Biden gleefully kept riding his bike while simply saying "We're looking at it." On Monday, he made matters even worse by smiling and shouting "No comment" at reporters when asked about the rising...

    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden are "praying" for the victims of the Maui wildfires a day after the president declined to comment on the tragedy. During Monday's press briefing, Jean-Pierre said the president and his wife were sending prayers to the victims of the Maui wildfires that leveled the town of Lahaina. "As the president said last week that he and the first lady are praying for families who are grieving their loved ones and for everyone who has suffered devastating losses of land and property as a result of the...

    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre both mispronounced the names of Hawaii’s two Democratic senators and misgendered one of them at a Monday press conference after the island suffered the most devastating US wildfire in more than a century. “Senator Harino [sic], who I said the president spoke to just last night, he thanked the president for the immediate support of federal agencies have delivered for residents of Hawaii,” the Biden administration’s chief spokesperson told reporters, “and so does, has, so has Senator Shorts, Sharts — Schatz.” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), the first female senator from the Aloha State, is...

    Democrat extremism in the wake of President Joe Biden’s “Dark MAGA” speech heated up some more on Wednesday when Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) issued a “call to arms” on the Senate floor while debating a national abortion ban. “When I hear my colleagues talking about how, you know, ‘it should be state rights’ or ‘government should not be telling us what to do,’ the word ‘hypocrites,’ it doesn’t even go far enough to call them out on what they’re doing,” said Hirono.

    With the hearings going on as we speak, we have to go back to this because it hurts. It’s physically painful to watch. Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) tried to be a good liberal soldier and return fire against the GOP attacks against Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson (KBJ). The problem is that the grenade she wanted to lob into the Republican camp blew up in her face. Is this bad staffing? Is this plain stupidity? Is this a classic case of a liberal ignoring or not knowing news that goes against his or her worldview? Maybe it’s a combination of both....
  • Capehart: If I Wouldn't Get Fired, I'd Curse Tucker Carlson for Wanting Jackson's Test Score

    On his MSNBC show Sunday morning, after playing a clip of Tucker Carlson calling for the release of the LSAT (Law School Admission Test) score of Ketanji Brown Jackson, Biden's Supreme Court justice nominee, Jonathan Capehart said to his liberal Democrat guest: "Senator Hirono, I'm not going to curse because it's Sunday and I'd get fired. Can you talk about why what Tucker Carlson just said is so repugnant?" Hirono failed to answer Capehart's question. She didn't/couldn't venture anything as to why it was "repugnant" to ask for Brown Jackson's LSAT score. The most she could muster was to suggest...
  • Why Senate Democrats who signed Susan Collins' pro-filibuster letter in 2017 want to get rid of it now

    Just under five years ago more than half of the Democrats currently in the Senate signed a letter defending the 60-vote filibuster on legislation – but now many of them are leading the charge to eliminate it as soon as this weekend. "Reality changed," Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said when asked what is different in 2022 compared with 2017, when she was among the signers of the letter led by Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Chris Coons, D-Del. -------------- Sen. Mazie Hirono said "reality changed" between 2017 and 2022, which is why she now opposes the Senate filibuster. (AP Photo/Julio...

    Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said Thursday on CNN’s “Newsroom” that the Republican Party is attempting to stop “Black people, Chicanos, Asian-American people from voting.” Hirono said, “What I’m seeing are voter suppression bills being enacted by state legislatures across the country, so that is a direct threat to our democracy. Voter suppression bills by the hundreds. So you have a state like Georgia where they’re trying to take over the election board. They already have, where you can’t give water or food to people standing in line for hours, where you have one voter who can challenge another voter, and...

    On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Velshi,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said she agrees with the notion that people don’t care about gas prices if they can’t afford child care so they can work. Guest host Maria Teresa Kumar said, “One of the things that we saw was a historic infrastructure bill that passed that’s going to alleviate, not just our roads and clean water, but has implications for a brighter future when it comes to climate energy and so on and so forth. However, now, the second part of this plan, the human infrastructure, the one that will build back...
  • Democrat Senator faults Trump for Americans left behind in Afghanistan [Crazy Maizie Hirono - Hawaii]

    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) appeared on CNN to blame former President Trump for the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan. According to her, it’s been a tough process to get Afghans out of the country since Trump was in office. The senator called in from Honolulu. “Let’s be clear, though, that there are a lot of Afghans who were applying for the special immigrant visas, and the Trump Administration slow walked these visas to the point where it was not even happening,” Hirono said. “So the development of a lot of our Afghan partners and their families who are not able to...

    I’ve said it many times before, but nearly every week some leftist makes me say it again: when it comes to stupid or crazy, there is no “bottom” for the left to hit. Honestly, they keep getting crazier in all the old ways while finding new and creatives ways to bring insanity to the world. The sad thing is, while we all laugh at each of these new insanities, eventually they become some semblance of normal. Ultimately, the joke is on us. The latest example is something called “birthing persons,” or “black birthing persons” if you’re one of the racist...

    Mazie Hirono told Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to "live forever" shortly after Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court. Hirono, who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, recalled in her forthcoming memoir, Heart of Fire, how a month after Senate Republicans confirmed Kavanaugh to the high court, the "troubled" Hirono sat herself next to Ginsburg at a dinner party and offered her regrets. "You have to live forever," Hirono whispered to Ginsburg, noting that she felt "some small comfort" as long as the octogenarian justice sat on the court. Ginsburg did not respond to Hirono's entreaty directly, only...

    Sens. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) and Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) say they will vote against President Biden's nominees amid frustration over the lack of Asian American and Pacific Islander representation and broader concerns about diversity in his Cabinet. While most of Biden's core Cabinet picks have already been confirmed, the opposition could be a significant hurdle to getting additional executive or judicial branch nominations through the 50-50 Senate, where the support of every Democrat is needed if Republicans line up against a nominee. Duckworth first told reporters on Tuesday that she had informed the White House she would oppose any "non-diversity" nominees...

    Illinois Democratic Sen. Tammy Duckworth said Tuesday that she will stall votes on President Biden’s nominees in protest of his lack of Asian American selections to cabinet-level jobs. Duckworth has the power to single-handedly tank contentious nominees in the evenly divided Senate, though some of Biden’s nominees have passed with significant Republican support. “There’s no AAPI representation in the cabinet. There’s not a single AAPI in a Cabinet position. That’s unacceptable,” Duckworth told reporters at the Capitol, using a term for Asian Americans a Pacific islanders. “I’ve been talking to them for months. And they’ve still not addressed it, so...

    Where were the suits now pulling out of GOP donations when Democrats ignored due process in the 2018 Justice Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings?As The Federalist has continued to expose, corporate America has a double standard for its PAC donations based on arbitrary and partisan distinctions. Since virtue-signaling multinational corporations claim to be so intent on rescinding campaign contribution dollars to the GOP to retaliate against members of Congress who did not vote to certify the 2020 presidential election, this presents a reciprocal question. Where were the suits when Democrats ignored due process in the 2018 Justice Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings?...

    Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono walked up as the roll call of the vote for Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court was read aloud. Footage shows Hirono (D-HI) tersely saying “hell no” while giving a thumbs down during the vote. Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court by a 52-48 vote Monday and was administered the oath by Justice Clarence Thomas. Hirono had earlier tweeted about Judge Barrett’s perceived “radical views.” She said last month that she would not support the nomination.

    Democratic Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono said “hell no” while casting her vote against Judge Amy Coney Barrett on the floor of the U.S. Senate. A Republican-majority Senate confirmed President Donald Trump’s pick to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by a 52-48 margin Monday night. While the roll-call vote was being conducted, Hirono could be seen walking up to the table and entering her vote against Barrett by saying “hell no” while putting her thumb down. WATCH:

    With Judge Amy Coney Barrett on the verge of confirmation, Democrats are showing utter disdain for their constitutional duties and the American people. While the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously recommended Barrett for a full Senate vote, anti-Trump Democrats boycotted in protest, taking their #Resistance to a whole new level. This is unprecedented: Despite finding no legitimate flaws in Barrett's nomination (because there are none), the Left decided to grandstand anyway, sending a clear message that bipartisanship is dead. Today's Democrats want Americans to know that they are not interested in sharing power, just consolidating it.The Left’s strategy is two-fold, the first one...

    Rarely has our nation seen a judge more competent and qualified to serve on the Supreme Court than Amy Coney Barrett. During her confirmation hearing, she held me in thrall with the magnificence of her mind. Only once before has anyone inspired the thought, "Greatness walks amongst us." His name is Trey Gowdy. In Amy Coney Barrett, I feel the same awe and chills once again. With Amy's confirmation, Lady Justice will no longer peek from underneath her blindfold. No longer will there be a finger surreptitiously pushing down on one side of her Scales of Justice. When Barrett's Senate...

    Facebook is demonetizing the Christian, political satire page “The Babylon Bee” after they published an article satirizing Sen. Mazie Hirono’s comments during the Amy Coney Barrett hearings in a fictional depiction. The Bee’s CEO Seth Dillon announced the demonetization on Tuesday in a tweet, claiming that the big tech company pulled down the article based on a “regurgitated joke from a Monty Python movie.” “So after a manual review, Facebook says they stand by their decision to pull down this article and demonetize our page. I’m not kidding,” he wrote. “They say this article ‘incites violence.’ It’s literally a regurgitated...
