  • Subordinate Sex Is Bad and So Is Revenge Porn

    The Daily Signal ^ | November 1, 2019 | Nicole Russell
    Freshman Rep. Katie Hill resigned Thursday in the wake of multiple controversies, including engaging in at least one sexual relationship with a campaign staff member. Conservative website Red State published intimate photos of the California Democrat on Oct. 18 after they were leaked to the site, sparking a debate about inappropriate relationships and “revenge porn.” Hill should not have engaged in a relationship with a subordinate while holding public office, and thus should shoulder the blame for that choice. Nonetheless, there’s little the public can do about her personal choices other than to call for her resignation. There may be...

    Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur, who is seeking a congressional seat in California, told CNN on Monday that his past remarks about women were an attempt "to be a stupid politically incorrect Republican." "First of all, I wrote that stuff 19 years ago; I deleted it 15 years ago," Uygur told CNN host Chris Cuomo during an on-set interview. "I deleted it not because I thought I'd get caught or someone would find it, I deleted it because I didn't believe it anymore. This is not me. I was trying to be a stupid, politically incorrect Republican. So I wrote...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's promise to boost federal funding for social programs should not be considered "free stuff," because they are in fact "public goods," the New York Democrat said in a Monday tweet. Ocasio-Cortez, who earlier in the day led a Green New Deal town hall about public housing in the Bronx, said she's tired of being accused of essentially bribing voters with financial handouts. "Public education, libraries, & infrastructure policies (which we‘ve had before in America and elsewhere in the world!) are not 'free stuff,'" she tweeted. "They are PUBLIC GOODS. And they are worth investing in, protecting, &...

    November 30th marked the first anniversary of the signing of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) by President Trump, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto  and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The purpose of the agreement is to rebalance and modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement into a 21st century, high-standard trade deal. The new USMCA will benefit American workers, farmers, ranchers, and businesses and support mutually beneficial trade leading to freer markets, fairer trade, and robust economic growth throughout North America.   From the moment it was signed, its ratification by Congress has been a priority of President Trump, his...

    It didn't take long for snowflakes on the left to express their outrage over the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency's "fake university" sting operation which saw 90 students arrested this past week for immigration violations. Like clockwork, liberals took to Twitter in order to condemn the sting operation and the man they thought was responsible for it, Donald Trump. Except it wasn't Trump who started the sting operation. It started in 2015—under Barack Obama. 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, an alumnus of the Obama administration, called it "cruel and appalling." She added, "These students simply dreamed of getting the...

    Bronson has an excellent piece about the recent round-up of illegals that enrolled in a fake university. Immigration and Customs Enforcement nabbed some 250 people in this effort. It was a successful enforcement measure. It’s something that should be done more often. If you’re an illegal alien, you have to go. Sorry, that’s the law. That’s federal law. And we have a new sheriff in Donald J. Trump who will enforce those laws. Immigration enforcement authorities will find you and kick you the hell out. Period. No one has the right to come here. We can deny anyone entry. And...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/29/19 | Mike Brest
    Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg of espousing Republican philosophy in regards to free education. Ocasio-Cortez, who has previously endorsed Buttigieg's competitor in Sen. Bernie Sanders, supports both tuition-free college as well as canceling student debt. Sanders also supports both policies. In a campaign video tweeted out on Thursday, Buttigieg agreed that college should be "affordable for everybody," but questioned the feasibility of implementing a tuition-free system for all. "There are some voices saying, 'well that doesn't count unless you go even further, unless it's free even for the kids of millionaires,' but I only want...

    The Democrats, their bluster about the 2018 “blue wave” notwithstanding, have a particularly tenuous grasp on the House majority. The GOP needs to flip only 19 seats in 2020 to regain control — and the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has already identified more than twice that number of vulnerable Democrats in districts won by Trump in 2016. Thursday’s vote has imperiled those weak Democrats even further by graphically illustrating that there really is no such thing as a “moderate Democrat.” Below is a list of Democrats who promised their constituents they would rise above the corrupting influence of the...

    It is an article of faith among political analysts that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a master strategist, and indeed her career is studded with significant accomplishments. Yet, more recently, she has made two grievous errors that could well cost Democrats the election in 2020. The first was putting Adam Schiff in charge of the impeachment inquiry. The second is not reining in the so-called Squad, or the four female freshmen Democrats whose extreme progressive voices have helped push the Democrat party to the left, alienating much of the country. The other day, Pelosi warned at a meeting with Bloomberg...

    For the past several weeks a deposition transcript has been floating around implicating Ilhan Omar as a Qatari asset. Bona fide news outlets have hesitated to report on the allegations without some confirmation. Now the Jerusalem Post has stepped forward to serve up the story without confirmation. Al Arabiya English does likewise here. A spokesman for Omar has dignified the story with an outright denial that is included by the Post in its account. When Omar is unable to deal with the facts, she instructs her spokesman to avoid the question on her behalf. That is how she handled the...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., pulled in what is being described as an unprecedented fundraising haul in the third quarter of this year, outraising top Democrats in the House of Representatives as party leaders move forward with a controversial impeachment inquiry. With $1.42 million in the bank, the progressive star raised more for her re-election campaign than any other House Democrat, with the vast majority ($1.1 million) of individual donations totaling less than $200. Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., fell behind the freshman congresswoman, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

    “What do we do with this?” That’s what a dumbfounded Sen. Elizabeth Warren begged Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) during a speech at Clark Atlanta University in Georgia last week, as protesters interrupted with loud chants of “Our voice! Our choice!” She was out of ideas. The speech to the historically black university started out okay, with the presidential candidate giving a nod to Pressley who preceded her on the dais. “Ayanna is a fighter and she’s the kind of fighter I love, a sister warrior who knows how to win,” she proclaimed. Then a shoutout to the crowd. “Can we...

    We remember how Representative Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, or the Bronx Evita as my friend Bill Katz calls her, led the campaign to kill an Amazon project in the New York City area. She killed a few thousand jobs, maybe even more.  It was a disaster for workers, but Miss Sandy O got another invitation to MSNBC, Well, she is back and she is killing jobs again. Check this out:     Last week, Bright Power decided to fire its staff and farm all the work out to subcontractors instead of maintaining their own workforce. The firing occurred just as the workers were following Ocasio-Cortez’s...
  • Leading Democrats Call for Conditioning Military Aid to Israel

    Three leading Democratic presidential candidates recently endorsed a new policy regarding U.S. military aid to Israel: It should be conditioned on Israel embracing policies toward the Palestinians favored by American progressives. At the J Street conference last week, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) demanded that Israel "fundamentally change" its approach to terrorist-controlled Gaza, adding, "I think it is fair to say that some [U.S. military aid to Israel] should go right now into humanitarian aid in Gaza." Israeli officials believe such moves would enable Hamas to import more weapons and lead to another war. South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg...

    New York Times ^ | November 19, 2019, | Neil Irwin
    ... This year, American workers and their employers owe a combined 12.4 percent on Social Security payroll taxes for income up to $132,900 (rising to $137,700 in 2020). They owe nothing on earnings above that level. Some Democrats in the thick of the presidential race and on Capitol Hill now seek to change or eliminate that cap — potentially placing a new double-digit tax on high earners, with several plans focusing on earnings above $250,000. ... The result would be a large tax increase on high earners, even before other changes a Democratic administration might contemplate, such as increasing income...

Ilhan Omar where the activist, Laura Loomer, were in what some might call a confrontational incident. A confrontation at a Minneapolis campaign event for U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar in 2018 has prompted a federal lawsuit by conservative activist and Florida congressional candidate Laura Loomer against U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib...

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said after President Donald Trump’s tweet about former U.S. ambassador to the Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, Republicans were “beclowning themselves” trying to defend the president. Host Chris Hayes said, “It’s not surprising the president did that.” Ocasio-Cortez said, “No, not surprising at all. I’m sure, and it certainly seemed my Republican colleagues were scrambling after he sent out those tweets trying to provide some kind of cover. I mean, it’s — they’re really beclowning themselves at this point trying to find a way to somehow preserve their careers and futures...
