This is NOT the best defense Al Franken could have received

This is NOT the best defense Al Franken could have received

**Written by Doug Powers On Tuesday, Garrison Keillor had this op-ed in the Washington Post: The next day, this happened: BREAKING: Garrison Keillor says he’s been fired by Minnesota Public Radio over allegations of inappropriate behavior. — The Associated Press (@AP) November 29, 2017 With Franken’s luck, the next guy to come to his defense will be Matt Lauer. **Written by Doug Powers Twitter @ThePowersThatBe … Read entire article »

Nancy Pelosi: Sham “Shero”

Nancy Pelosi: Sham “Shero”

Nancy Pelosi: Sham “Shero” by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2017 Finally, Nancy Pelosi’s faux feminist veneer has fully cracked. The Democratic “shero” is, and always has been, a sham. But after Pelosi’s incoherent babblefest on “Meet the Press” defending accused groper John Conyers and clown-cad Al Franken, the progressive left can no longer mask her partisan perv apologism. Pelosi milked her XX chromosomes for all their electoral worth. Her official biography brags about her role as “the most powerful woman … Read entire article »

AWW: Trump ruined CNN’s holiday spirit

AWW: Trump ruined CNN’s holiday spirit

**Written by Doug Powers The liberal media remain incredibly traumatized by the reality of dealing with a president whose likeness they can’t put in makeshift mangers scenes in their respective newsrooms, and CNN’s post-Obama stress disorder has reached a breaking point this holiday season: Adding fuel to its growing feud with President Donald Trump, CNN told POLITICO it will be boycotting the White House Christmas party for the media this year. “CNN will not be attending this … Read entire article »

Actual WaPo fact check: Pence jobs claim correct, so only 3 Pinocchios for him

**Written by Doug Powers There’s so much spin in this “fact check” it may well have been written in of a centrifuge, so it might be a good idea to mainline Dramamine before trying to get through it all without getting dizzy. Here’s the gist… The claim: “There are more Americans working today than ever before in American history.” — Vice President Pence, remarks during a speech at the Tax Foundation, Nov. 16, 2017 The conclusion: True but false: More meaningful measures of the overall health of the job market take population into consideration. And both the labor force participation rate and the employment-to-population rate show there is still room for improvement following the Great Recession. Those rates peaked in the late 1990s or early 2000s. We were tempted to say that Pence earns Four Pinocchios, but … Read entire article »

Shocker! The DC harassment swamp has Dem & media enablers

**Written by Doug Powers I’ll get to the media enablers in a second, but first here’s another example of how Nancy Pelosi turns on a hypocrisy dime faster than Al Franken can grab butts at a meet & greet. The wind-up from 2014: #YesAllWomen deserve to live free from threats of domestic violence & sexual assault. We must shine a bright light on such despicable crimes — Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) May 27, 2014 And the pitch this week: Rep. Pelosi calls John Conyers an “icon” amid ethics probe pic.twitter.com/PnR4CcmtJq — FOX & friends (@foxandfriends) November 27, 2017 Pelosi’s “bright light” seems to burn out when the accused are Democrats. Pelosi knew about Conyers years ago and did nothing: She said she contacted the Ethics Committee again in 2011 on a behalf of a colleague from Conyers’ office who … Read entire article »

Pelosi: Don’t draw conclusions about Conyers until he’s done investigating himself

**Written by Doug Powers Remember when Democrats cheered when Hillary Clinton said during the campaign that women with accusations against men should be “heard and believed” while Bill coughed and slowly backed out of the room? You won’t be surprised to know those “rules” have changed now that more Dems have been accused. The office of Rep. John Conyers shelled out nearly $30,000 in taxpayer funds to settle a sexual harassment allegation in 2014 (taxpayers are so involuntarily generous that way) but this morning, Nancy Pelosi was in no rush to judgment: House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on Sunday urged “due process” before making conclusions about Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., following accusations of sexual harassment, saying the 27-term Congressman is “an icon” who has worked to protect women. “We are strengthened by … Read entire article »

Journalism! Out: Russia hacked election — In: WH spox faked Thanksgiving pie

**Written by Doug Powers From the “It’s Come to This” file on this Thanksgiving weekend we find this pre-stuffed turkey of a “bombshell”: CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan suggested, without any evidence, Friday that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders actually didn’t actually cook the pecan pie Sanders said she did. Ryan is frequently praised by liberals for being a nuisance in the White House press briefing room, but … Read entire article »

Hey Dems, Hillary’s waiting for you to ask her advice about 2020

**Written by Doug Powers In an interview this week, Hillary Clinton made it clear that she’s available to offer advice to other Democrat 2020 hopefuls: “Nobody’s actually been to see me,” the two-time failed presidential candidate said in a radio interview. “I see Democrats all the time, and nobody has said ‘Hey, I’m going to run,’ or ‘I’m thinking about running, give me advice now,’ because it is too soon.” She added, “And there may be some private planning going on by some people. I wouldn’t know who. I wouldn’t hazard a guess. But in terms of actually seeking out advice, people have said, ‘hey, I want to come talk to you.’ But I haven’t had those conversations, in large measure, because I’ve said I’m going to focus next year on 2018, and … Read entire article »

Chuck Schumer can stuff his effort to ruin Thanksgiving dinner

**Written by Doug Powers Another Thanksgiving is upon us, and with it another Democrat attempt to try and take advantage of families’ tryptophan dazes to push some liberal talking points: Bring this chart to Thanksgiving dinner. It’ll come in handy when that family member who always talks politics tells you the Republican tax bill helps the middle class. pic.twitter.com/2EpZ5PxcDY — Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) November 19, 2017 Make like it’s the turkey, and stuff it, Chuck.

Dumb sensors, deadly consequences

Dumb sensors, deadly consequences by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2017 The circumstances of U.S. Border Patrol agent Rogelio Martinez’s death this week remain murkier than the Rio Grande River. Agent Martinez succumbed to critical head injuries early Sunday morning. An unnamed partner, who came to Martinez’s aid after he radioed for help from a remote area of the Big Bend sector in Texas, also suffered serious wounds. Whether by deliberate ambush or accident, one of our border enforcers is dead and the other hospitalized. This much is clear: Dumb sensors + depleted forces = deadly border disorder. Agent Martinez had ventured out alone to check on a ground sensor to determine who or what had set it off. He confirmed to his colleagues that human activity had activated the alarm before he died. Here’s the scandal: Our … Read entire article »

SNL alumni not offended by Franken vouch for beleaguered senator

**Written by Doug Powers This could be the funniest thing to come from SNL in years, and the tragedy is that it’ll never make the cut for a sketch on the show: Three dozen women who worked with Sen. Al Franken during his tenure on “Saturday Night Live” came out in defense of the Minnesota Democrat facing allegations of sexual misconduct. In the letter, the women slammed Franken’s behavior toward Leeann Tweeden — who accused the lawmaker of forcibly kissing and groping her more than a decade ago — as “stupid and foolish” but wrote that “not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior” from the former SNL cast member. “We feel compelled to stand up for Al Franken, whom we have all had the pleasure of working with over the years on … Read entire article »

Why some congressmen cling to the job for life, part VII: Taxpayer-funded harassment insurance

**Written by Doug Powers The latest member of Congress to be named in a harassment story is a Democrat who has been in the House since the continental ice sheet carved out the Great Lakes: Michigan Rep. John Conyers. Taxpayers, take note of the amount of money Conyers reportedly gave the woman to settle the complaint, because you paid for it: The website BuzzFeed News reported on Monday that the office of Conyers, 88, paid the woman over $27,000 to settle the complaint under a confidentiality agreement. BuzzFeed also published affidavits from former staff members who said they had witnessed Conyers touching female staffers inappropriately —rubbing their legs and backs — or requesting sexual favors. One former staffer said one of her duties was “to keep a list of women that I assumed … Read entire article »

Newsweek now considers Trump to be a member of *the family

The ‘I’ in ‘IRS’ now stands for ‘Irony’ (as inspired by Lois Lerner)

**Written by Doug Powers Last month, the Justice Department announced settlements had been reached with conservative groups the IRS admitted targeting for scrutiny during the totally scandal-free Obama administration. Last week, Lois Lerner and a person she worked with at the IRS at the time said they would fight unsealing of depositions for this reason: Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate. “Whenever Mss. Lerner and Paz have been in the media spotlight, they have faced death threats and harassment,” attorneys for the two women argued. Ms. Lerner and Ms. Paz gave taped depositions in a class-action … Read entire article »

10 months after 8 years of Obama, Joe Biden says America in grave danger

**Written by Doug Powers Does Joe remember who was in charge for eight years up until January 20th? Maybe not: Former Vice President Joe Biden lashed out at President Trump on Saturday for creating a “dangerous” climate in America. Biden, while speaking about his upcoming book at the Miami Book Fair in Florida, paused to discuss the Trump administration. He accused the president of not caring about the working class voters that put him in the White House and said he and his advisors take advantage of “change and pain.” “I think it’s one of the most dangerous times in modern history,” Biden said, according to the Miami Herald. […] “Do you think [Trump] really cares about the kids I grew up with in Scranton, Pennsylvania, as far as their economic well being?” Biden … Read entire article »

Epilogue XXIV: Hillary forgets different reason Bill ‘survived’ ’92 campaign

**Written by Doug Powers A Clinton Foundation event marking the 25th anniversary of Bill’s 1992 campaign was scheduled before Hillary lost last November and when organizers were probably certain it would be a celebration of two presidents. Instead the event had all the positive energy of Hillary’s “victory” party after the election. But at least it was nice of Hillary to remind Bill that she had it so much tougher than he did: “Unfortunately our body politic’s immune system has been impaired because there has been a concerted effort starting with the creation of the Fox network — it wasn’t there when Bill first ran, it was one of the reasons he probably survived, it was there when he ran the second time — it and all of its associated media outlets … Read entire article »

Emergency! Soros, Pelosi handing out new Resistance playbooks in Calif.

**Written by Doug Powers Is there a certain billionaire Dem Party puppet master out there who isn’t happy with his return on investment in recent years? It sounds like updated “Resistance” playbooks are being handed out in California this weekend: Liberal billionaire George Soros and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi were listed as the main attractions Friday at a California gathering of the anti-Trump elite. The four-day event in Carlsbad, titled “Beyond #Resistance: Reclaiming our Progressive Future,” asked that guests refrain from contacting the media or posting to social media, the agenda shows. Other speakers appearing in person or via video were expected to include U.S. Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, D-Minn.; and Democrats Gov. Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania and governor-elect Ralph Northam of Virginia. Special guest … Read entire article »

Hillary Clinton’s election loss denial circus enters 2nd year

**Written by Doug Powers Everybody remembers this Hillary Clinton classic from a couple weeks before the 2016 presidential election: Donald Trump refused to say that he’d respect the results of this election. That’s a direct threat to our democracy. — Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 24, 2016 That’s right up there with Hillary’s other all-time classics such as “like with a cloth or something” and “of course I believed Bill when he said the reason he was spotted in Vegas with no pants was that he’d generously donated his to a homeless person.” But Hillary showed this week that she has no intention of applying any statute of limitations to her scapegoating and denial. If you’re keeping a timeline, Clinton’s excuse parade has now entered its second year: In an interview with Mother Jones in downtown Manhattan, Clinton … Read entire article »

Judicial nominee’s ‘right to marry bacon’ joke had Sen. Pat Leahy sizzling mad

**Written by Doug Powers How many times can satire die this year? New records are being set daily. In 2015, then Texas Supreme Court Judge Don Willett, known for being snarky on Twitter, tweeted this: I could support recognizing a constitutional right to marry bacon. pic.twitter.com/HKPW6tE4H6 — Justice Don Willett (@JusticeWillett) April 30, 2015 As the Founders intended! It couldn’t have been a more obvious joke, but now that Willett’s a nominee to serve on the Fifth Circuit Court, Dems have to throw everything at the wall to see what sticks. Vermont lefty Sen. Pat Leahy didn’t find that funny, not one bit! Patrick Leahy, a top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Wednesday questioned a federal judgeship nominee’s ability to interpret Supreme Court precedent over a tweet about wanting a constitutional right to marry … Read entire article »
