BOOM! D’Souza’s Latest Destroys Well-Worn Lefty Narrative

He’s baaaaack.

Fresh off Stealing America: What Criminal Gangs Taught Me About Obama, Hillary, and the Democratic Party (2015), Dinesh D’Souza is loaded for bear. His latest, The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left, takes aim at some of the Left’s most cherished fictions – like the Democratic Party is the party of emancipation, equality and civil rights, and the Republican Party is made up of “racists,” “Nazis” and “fascists.”

D’Souza round-files that horse hooey faster than you can say “Yvette Felacra.”  (But really. Why would you? Side note: The Screeching Gnome of Berkeley has no idea what “fascist” even means. Not that that really matters…)

Senator Cantwell Responds on Antifa (Sort Of)

Ever wonder just how stupid some elected officials think you are?

Pretty darn stupid, if the *responses* I get from Senators Cantwell and Murray are any indication.

Last month I told you I contacted both senators in August asking about their stance on Antifa:

Where do you stand on ANTIFA?

Heard back from Sen. Maria Cantwell’s office today. Sort of. A snippet:

Dear Ms. Lowder,

Thank you for contacting me about white supremacy and President Trump’s response to the domestic terror attack in Charlottesville, Virginia. I appreciate hearing from you on this urgent issue.

President Trump’s reluctance to quickly and directly condemn the hate, bigotry, and racism of white supremacists and members of the Ku Klux Klan that gathered at Charlottesville was deeply alarming and disturbing.

Here’s the full response Cantwell Response 10.06.17

Oh, I dunno. I could say I find it “deeply alarming and disturbing” that Cantwell & Co. obviously didn’t even read my original email. (No, I’m not surprised. This is par for the Cantwell Course. Morons everywhere should be insulted.)

Okay, senator and staffers: What part of “Where do you stand on ANTIFA?” do you not understand? Can you not figure out spell check? Or are you so eager to crank out the standard Trump-bashing boilerplate *response* that you never bother to actually read anything?

Altogether now:

 

Thanks, Dems! Some Harborites May Soon Be Without Healthcare

Remember “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”? How ‘bout, “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan?”

Anyone who’s been paying attention to the political landscape for any length of time – say, 20 minutes or so – knows what a crock those two Obamanian lines turned out to be (not that anyone’s counting or anything).

But wait. It’s about to get better. Especially in Grays Harbor.

According to a June 8 story in CNN Money, More Insurers Drop Obamacare, Even in State With a Healthy Exchange, Grays Harbor will have the dubious distinction of being one of two Washington counties to be without any Obamacare insurers next year. As in, Zip. Zero. Nada.  Via CNN Money:

Two (Washington) counties won’t have any insurers participating in the individual market — either on the state’s Obamacare exchange or off of it — next year unless another company steps in, the Washington insurance department said Wednesday.

This could be trouble for the more than 3,300 people in those counties, Klickitat and Grays Harbor, who buy their own coverage. This includes the more than 2,100 residents who signed up for policies through the exchange.

Washington would become the third state to have locales without any Obamacare insurers. Enrollees in the Kansas City, Missouri, area and in parts of Ohio also won’t have any options on their exchanges next year unless other carriers join.(Emphasis added.)

Insurers who are pulling out cite the expenses of “setting up doctor and hospital networks or the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Obamacare’s future.”  Sure as night follows day, the other side of the aisle is trying to pin blame on President Trump and Republicans.

Not so fast.

Remember who put the ACA in place. Hint: It wasn’t Republicans.  Nor did Republicans force the individual mandate, coercing free citizens to engage in commerce and purchase a product whether you wanted/needed it or not. (Doesn’t that qualify as “slavery”? Askin’ for a friend.)  Continues CNN Money:

Even though the bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act is working its way through the Senate, Obamacare still remains the law of the land. Insurers are now telling state regulators whether they’ll participate for 2018 and the rates they want to charge consumers.

How Obamacare is faring nationwide really depends on the state — and even the county. Insurers are pulling out of some areas, leaving a growing number of places with only one carrier on the exchange. Humana (HUM), Aetna (AET) and several Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans, which specialize in the individual market, have announced their departures.

While we’re taking a trudge down memory lane, remember that Obamacare passed without a single Republican vote. You may also want to remember that the next time you fill out your ballot. Or need to see a doctor.

Indeed, the handwriting on the wall regarding Obamacare was obvious to anyone with two functional brain cells from Day 1.  Democrats deployed a variety of  smoke and mirrors to sell Obama’s magical health elixir.

And now you know “what’s in it.”

Obamacare was never designed to improve access to anything. (Remember Jonathan Gruber?) In fact, Obamacare is doing exactly what it was intended to do – fail – as a precursor to single payer. (See Obamacare: A Trojan Horse for Single Payer.) So Americans can have healthcare that’s just as lousy as Canadians and Brits.

If you’re upset about losing your health insurance, remember which party dumped that monstrosity on you in the first place. (Don’t even get me started on the difference between “health coverage” and “health care.” Because that’s night and day. As in, Great! You’ve got insurance through the exchange. Good luck getting anyone who’ll accept it.)

Speaking of “luck,” if you’re over 50 and fall into the demographic outlined above, good luck getting decent healthcare. Can you say “rationing”? Unfortunately, some Americans have become so addicted to government-provided “healthcare” since 2010, they can’t imagine a world without it.

Try.

In the meantime, Harborites, don’t get sick, injured, or otherwise in need of medical care next year, courtesy of the Party Debt, Dependency, and Duplicity.

You might also want to remember that per the next election.

 

Why Yanking Federal $ from ‘Sanctuary Cities’ is a Dumb Idea (I Have a Better One)

President Donald Trump issued an executive order in January that included threatening to slash federal funding from sanctuary cities if they refuse to cooperate with immigration authorities and continue giving safe haven to criminal illegal aliens.  Some “sanctuary city” mayors, including Seattle’s Ed Murray, are vowing to continue shielding illegal aliens accused of crimes from federal immigration authorities.

Murray even said he’d be willing to sacrifice “every single penny” of federal money, including $10 million for the Seattle Police Department, if keeping it meant cooperating with federal immigration authorities to deport illegal aliens accused or convicted of committing further crimes in the U.S.

Fine. Because threatening to yank federal funds from these cities is a dumb idea. For one thing, it makes the Trump administration look like it’s as sensitive as a brick, willing to ‘rip families apart’ that arguably shouldn’t be here in the first place, and – sniff – probably doesn’t even leave cookies and milk out for Santa on Christmas Eve. Also, such action faces an uphill legal battle. Mr. Ed and every elected bleeding heart lib in the country is or soon will be queuing up at the nearest courthouse to file suit to avoid compliance with Trump’s E.O. And legal precedent suggests that fed “defunding” sanctuary cities would be difficult, if not impossible. (Hello, 9th Circuit?)

Besides, we all know that jurisdictions that resist cooperating with federal immigration enforcement experience lower crime rates and are “safer for everyone,” with stronger economies, right? Because if you  enter the country illegally, you have such high regard for the law?

So why not let such communities continue to welcome illegal criminal aliens? I mean, criminal illegal aliens offer so many benefits to these municipalities, yes?  So why are big meanies like Trump and Jeff Sessions threatening to cut off federal funds from these Shangri-Las? Can we all hold hands around the campfire and sing Kum-By-Yah?

By the way, dear mayors, if you’re going to pick and choose which federal laws you comply with and which ones you ignore, does that include federal laws related to child porn, drug enforcement, illegal weapons possession…. Bah-dah-bing, bah-dah-boom? Where does it stop? Just wondering.

I have a better idea. Rather than complying with Trump’s “mean-spirited and unrealistic executive order,” how ‘bout Donald Trump issue something like:

Dear Seattle, San Francisco, New York, et.al.:

You’re right. Rather than pulling federal money from you over your sanctuary city policies, please be advised that I am hereby directing all ICE officials to remove themselves from your jurisdiction, effective thirty (30) days from today’s date. To wit:

  • All Immigration and Customs Enforcement offices in your jurisdiction will be closed.
  • All ICE activities in your jurisdiction will cease and desist.
  • Any matters related to criminal illegal aliens will be handled wholly and solely by local law enforcement, on your dime. (This shouldn’t be a problem, seeing as how you have plenty of money to file suit against the Trump administration.)

If you persist in retaining your “sanctuary city” status at the end of ninety (90) days, all federal law enforcement authorities and operations will cease and desist within your jurisdiction. This includes, but is not limited to, all responsibilities and operations conducted by:

Additionally, all United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) personnel will also vacate your jurisdiction as long as your “sanctuary” status remains in effect. This will include, but is not limited to, the cessation of all operations and reassignment of personnel per:

All of the above operations previously conducted by said federal law enforcement authorities will be conducted at the local level, on your dime, for as long as you persist in retaining your “sanctuary city” status. Should you care to reconsider such status, please be advised that the reinstatement of such federal officials, offices and operations may require six months to a year.

Because illegal immigrants are such a boon to the local economy and ‘sanctuary city’ jurisdictions have less crime than their counterparts, we figured you won’t mind.

Have a nice day.

Love,

Donald

P.S.: Dear illegal criminal aliens: You are now free to move to any “welcoming” sanctuary city you choose, so you can help boost its economy and reduce the crime rate. The line forms to the Left.

Rep. Kilmer’s Six Reasons for Opposing Obamacare Repeal

We love Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-6th CD). We love him so much, in fact, that we’re racking up ‘frequent flyer’ miles touching base with his office. To Kilmer’s credit, we always receive a response. Usually pretty quick. Sometimes the response is the rhetorical equivalent of War and Peace. Like the representative’s response to a recent message urging him to support efforts to repeal Obamacare.

I know, I know. But hope springs eternal.

To be clear, we do not support “repeal and replace.” We support repeal. Why? Because Obamacare is ‘government over-reach’ on steroids. We reject the notion that any American should be coerced into purchasing anything by federal legislative fiat. A patient-centered, free market solution is far more American. That’s one reason why the second to the last paragraph of this response is like, Oh, great. Just what we need: Congress to “improve”… anything. Yeah. That’ll work.

That being said, Rep. Kilmer lists six reasons why he opposes repealing Obamacare.  It’s classic DemolibSpeak. (I’d load up on No Doze ‘fize you):

Democrats on Gorsuch: Giving ‘Proud Extremists’ Hope, One Stupid Talking Point at a Time

Senate Democrats caucus to discuss ‘confirmation hearing’ talking points. Or… Tuesday.

Don’tcha love watching Democrats be Democrats? Especially on the Senate Judiciary Committee, where they’re supposedly participating in “hearings” on President Trump’s pick for the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s some of the best entertainment in town. Especially watching partisan political hacks like Senators Dianne “witch burning” Feinstein, Patrick “Anita Hill” Leahy and Co. trying to sound like anything other than partisan political hacks.

It’s like Amateur Night at the Bijou with Larry, Moe, and Curly.

But seriously. There is a silver lining. Sort of. If today’s confirmation hearings have shown us anything, it’s how utterly vacuous, inane, and koo-koo for cocoa puffs the Democratic Party is on just about everything. Ditto how “open-minded” they are. Think stainless steel vise.

Yea, verily. The galactic hypocrisy of the party that routinely touts itself as a paragon of diversity, inclusivity and tolerance is on full display in these hearings as anything but. At least they all got the same talking points and are staying on script. (We wouldn’t want any actual, original thought to disrupt their pre-fab agenda now, would we?)

For example, I received the following email this afternoon from the DNC. The subject line was, re: Neil Gorsuch. It goes like:

WA Senators Respond on Gorsuch

Neil Gorsuch. Wikipedia Commons.

Senate hearings on Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch begin tomorrow. Sure as night follows day, the Left has launched a relentless smear campaign of falsehoods and sheer stupidity in an attempt to derail his nomination. Why? Because Neil Gorsuch is their worst nightmare: A judge who recognizes that his job is to interpret, not make law, and that judges should not overstep the clear bounds of the Constitution.

Oh, the horror!

Making matters worse for the Left, Judge Gorsuch has had the unmitigated gall to rule favorably in a number of religious freedom and pro-life cases. (Are you sick to death of hearing how the “rights” of one Lefty demographic trump everyone else’s?)

Shocker: Washington’s U.S. Senators are marching lock-step with their out-of-touch, out-to-lunch, invent-new-law-from-the-bench, ideological waste land soul mates.  Even though Democrats voted unanimously to confirm Gorsuch to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2006, they’re now back-pedaling furiously on his Supreme Court nomination. In fact, they’re scared to death that a judge who’s not a “the Constitution is whatever we say it is” Lefty may become an associate to the high court. Oh, the horror again!

Barf Alert

Well. If you thought Washington’s two illustrious U.S. Senators were lost-and-spaced before, check out their responses to my messages urging them to support the Gorsuch nomination. (Are they trying to set a world record for Galactic Stupidity/Pompous Blowhards?)
