  • Lawmakers Fume After Biden Sides with 'Radical' Chicago Teachers Union

    01/27/2021 8:20:23 AM PST · by rktman · 18 replies ^ | 1/26/2021 | Cortney O'Brien
    The Chicago Teachers Union continues to stage a standoff with City Hall after the union voted to reject in-person learning on Monday. The Board of Education had required K-8 teachers to return to schools so they could be prepared for a return to in-person learning on Feb. 1. But because the CTU didn't comply, the city has announced a delay to the teachers' start date to Wednesday in order "to resolve our discussions without risking disruption to student learning.” Chicago Public Schools explained how remote learning is putting strains on students, both in terms of their education and finances. The...
  • Video: Three Former Presidents Preach Kumbaya And It’s Just Cringe-Worthy(Barfage!)

    Two videos caught my attention this morning. One video was put out by the Biden Inaugural Committee. It features three former presidents at Joe Biden’s inauguration, all of whom are speaking from the same page. It’s all about peace and love now, baby. The other video was posted on Jill Biden’s Twitter account late last night. She thanks the people who put on “our” (meaning herself and Joe) inauguration. Both videos will test your level of tolerance for cringe-worthy political material. The three amigos were back together yesterday for Joe Biden’s inauguration – former presidents Clinton, G.W. Bush, and Barack...
  • Buttigieg Dismissively Defends Biden's Elimination of Keystone Pipeline Jobs

    On Day One of his presidency, President Joe Biden signed an executive order stopping the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, slashing thousands of jobs along with it, because he and his incoming administration deem it an environmental hazard. TC Energy Corp. has already let go 1,000 workers in both the U.S. and Canada. Pete Buttigieg, who ran against Biden in the 2020 Democratic primary, is now the president's Transportation Secretary nominee. He was grilled by the Senate on Thursday about Biden's job-killing signatures. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) shared his concern that President Biden just upended 1,200 good paying union...

  • SMIRC: a protest idea ~ Vanity

    09/28/2020 6:24:20 PM PDT · by GraceG · 3 replies
    Here is an idea for the silent majority to protest. Just go in all plain clothes, no signs, no banners, no chanting, no other crap, do not engage the leftists, just every Saturday at high noon go to the state capital or city hall and just do the "Sandman Smirk" and stand there for an hour. Then leave at 1:00pm, set your cell phone alarms to go off at 1:00pm and all leave at that time, go home. If you talk to fellow people there, only speak quietly. The whole idea of this is to show that the silent Majority's...

    As the world grapples with the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, ongoing turmoil in the Middle East and Beijing’s brutal interventions in Hong Kong, the organization once charged with offering solutions to such problems is sidelined with nobody listening to its calls for “peace, harmony and global unity.” U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has bemoaned a “lack of leadership” during the world’s worst series of crises since 1945. “Where we see power, we sometimes do not see the necessary leadership,” he said recently.
  • Trump Will Be Running Against the VP Nominee and All Signs Are Pointing to Kamala Harris(Barfy!)

    Joe Cunningham at RedState had an interesting observation. There seems to be a link between the updates to an individual’s Wikipedia page and the selection of a nominee for vice president. In his analysis, Senator Kamala Harris is the current frontrunner to join Joe Biden on the ticket. Shortly after Harris endorsed Biden and appeared with him in Detroit, commentator Scott Adams also noted a few things. The senator has a new haircut, a new wardrobe, and has clearly gotten some professional coaching in public speaking. The annoying cackle is absent, and she seemed more measured. His bet at the...
  • Testing: The Way Out of This Trap

    One of the less helpful aspects of our current quandary is the shrill argument between two closed-minded camps. One condemns those who wish to open up the economy as science-defying ghouls who care nothing for human life. The other depicts the stay-at-homes as economic saboteurs willing to destroy the national economy in the name of unobtainable safety. Neither reckons with the indispensable bridge -- the testing problem. Whatever mayors, governors, or presidents might say, we cannot restart the economy as long as people are too frightened to resume working, shopping, and socializing. An NPR/Marist poll found that 65 percent of...
  • Pelosi to Trump: Ice Cream in My Freezer Is Better Than ‘Lysol in Somebody’s Lungs’

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) shot back at President Donald Trump for commenting about her freezer full of ice cream today at the White House. While discussing Pelosi canceling plans to call Congress back to Washington, Trump said, “The Democrats, they don’t want to come back. I think they should be back here, but they don’t, they’re enjoying their vacation…If you look at Nancy Pelosi eating ice cream on late-night television.” She continued, “So rather than spending talking about the president saying we are injecting Lysol in our lungs —he mades a big fuss about my...
  • Unvetted: Michelle Obama Hosted Former Terrorist Bill Ayers

    When she was an associate dean at the University of Chicago, Michelle Obama organized a panel discussion featuring her husband, then a state senator, as well as Bill Ayers, the infamous former leader of the Weather Underground anti-American domestic terrorist group. The detail was documented by this reporter in 2008 and may be among the material that becomes newly relevant amid speculation the former first lady could be picked as Joe Biden’s running mate. Such a move could set off renewed scrutiny of Michelle Obama’s past radical associations. Her husband’s past radical ties became hot button issues during the 2008...

  • The Impeachment Hearings Have Been Useless

    Democrats on the Intelligence Committee have spent the vast majority of their impeachment hearings trying to persuade voters that bureaucrats believe Donald Trump is impulsive, self-serving, and misguided — all of which is unsurprising, and completely irrelevant to the matter at hand. Quite often, in fact, the most breathless coverage of these tedious hearings has absolutely nothing to do with the allegedly impeachable offenses of quid pro quo or “bribery” — or whatever focus group-tested terminology Democrats are deploying today. Take the newest blockbuster witness, Fiona Hill, a Russia expert whose testimony nearly every outlet promised would be “explosive.” She...
  • Elizabeth Warren: I Fight Climate Change by ‘Mostly’ Flying Commercial

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said she has been “mostly” flying commercial in an effort to combat climate change but said her campaign is trying to look at “other ways” to reduce its carbon footprint. “What specific steps have you taken in your campaign to ensure that your campaign’s environmental impact is limited as possible?” a listener asked.Host Laura Knoy pointed out that Tom Steyer (D) recently told NHPR that he is only flying commercial, adding, “there’s a huge carbon footprint of a private jet, so that’s the sacrifice he said he was willing to make. How about you?” “So I’ve...

    Former President Barack Obama had dinner with actor Robert De Niro, one of Hollywood’s most outspoken Trump critics, in New York City on Monday evening, according to a report.

The pair is said to have dined at Yves Restaurant in Tribeca. Robert De Niro has longed supported Obama, having campaigned for him in 2008. As the Daily Mail notes, the dinner comes after Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company, Higher Ground, signed a whopping $90...

In the early hours of Saturday morning, the 77-year-old singer Tweeted out a cartoon image depicting President Trump being impaled by an oversized, high heel shoe worn by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Attention Secret Service! What makes Streisand's tweet especially comical is the singer's tweet just this month, stating Trump's "modus operandi is cartoonish violence."
  • Feinstein: I Want To See A 'Word-For-Word' Transcript Of Trump's Call With Ukrainian President

    Senate Intelligence Committee member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said she wants to see a "word-for-word" transcript of President Donald Trump's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, The Hill reported. Her desire for the supposed transcript comes after meeting with acting Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Joseph Maguire and the intelligence community’s inspector general Michael Atkinson on Thursday. According to Feinstein, the whistleblower's complaint "suggests that an 'official word-for-word transcript of the call' was produced," and Congress should have access to the document. "If so, it should be provided to Congress for review. Congress has a constitutional oversight duty. It’s important...
