Samantha Power’s U.N.-a-Palooza election night ‘victory’ party for Hillary was the funniest thing ever

**Written by Doug Powers Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power demonstrated by way of a recent documentary and interview what happens when the trifecta of overconfidence, sanctimony and bureaucratic gobbledygook collide: On the night of Nov. 8, 2016, Power threw a party for the 37 female diplomats at her apartment in New York City, a scene that is captured in the new HBO documentary, “The Final Year.” Power also invited Gloria Steinem and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, the first woman to hold the position, to the election night party, which she expected to end with Clinton’s victory. “I thought, what an amazing night for them,” Power told Politico of the 37 female ambassadors to the U.N. “I mean, that’s what America represents to the world, when a glass ceiling is … Read entire article »

Confirmed: Simone from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off had more reliable sources than ‘Fire and Fury’ author

**Written by Doug Powers The book “Fire and Fury” has been shown to be little more than Resistance fan fiction, and with reported “sources” like these that’s putting it mildly (via Allahpundit at Hot Air): Personally, I’ve enjoyed reading Wolff over the years. You can call him many things (see the preceding paragraph), but never dull. I do not know Wolff nor can I vouch for his credibility. Though I should add that a mutual acquaintance of … Read entire article »

Democrats’ Defense of DACA Shows Contempt for Constitution, Rule of Law

Democrats’ Defense of DACA Shows Contempt for Constitution, Rule of Law

Imagine a lawyer defending shoplifters, arguing that because his clients were successful in getting the merchandise out of the store undetected, they should be able to keep the stolen goods free and clear. That’s what 16 Democratic attorneys general are essentially advocating in defending the so-called “Dreamers,” the children of illegal immigrants surreptitiously slipped across our southern border. Like shoplifting, it’s against the law, but because they got in, they should be able to stay. The top … Read entire article »

Nancy Pelosi calls GOP tax cuts ‘pathetic’ but she’s actually describing the collapsed Dem narrative

**Written by Doug Powers Remember when Nancy Pelosi warned of GOP tax bill “Armageddon” along with all the accompanying doom and gloom that made the guy in Ghostbusters describing what would happen if the proton streams were crossed sound understated? Now that it’s clear most working Americans will be seeing more money in their paychecks, with some companies offering bonuses as a result of the relieved tax burden, Pelosi’s still weaving a narrative for the Dems: “A number of bonuses — one of the bonuses was in a union contract and then they added a little more money to that. That same firm just told the employees they were going to be laying off 1,500 people and if they wanted to save their jobs, they could work 32 hours. In terms of the … Read entire article »

Fossil fool: NYC mayor sues Big Oil, Gore-ifies city pension funds

**Written by Doug Powers This is a textbook example of what “climate change” alarmism is at least partly about: Attempting to blame the deepest available pockets for natural occurrences in order to re-fill the coffers emptied by spendthrift progressive ways while at the same time shifting money more in the direction of fellow travelers: New York City is suing five oil companies over climate change. The city is suing BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell, according to The Associated Press. New York alleges the five major oil companies have played a role in global warming, the AP reported and is seeking to recoup billions of dollars spent preparing for climate change. A spokesman for Shell said the issue of global warming is not one that should be handled in the courts. A … Read entire article »

Poll: What’s the dumbest ‘climate change’ hot take of the year (so far)?

Schiff-ting narrative… Out: Russia collusion! In: Whatever, but Trump IS mentally unfit!

**Written by Doug Powers California Rep. Adam Schiff has been like a Roomba the DNC programmed to search for phony excuses for why Hillary Clinton lost as well as reasons to impeach Trump. If you’re keeping score at home, the narrative that started at “Trump colluded with Russia to hack the election” has now devolved to “well ok but he IS mentally unfit based on the dubious claims made in this book”: Rep.

A couple questions about Bernie Sanders’ ‘patriotic millionaires’

Kris Kobach: ‘Amnesties Are Always Bad Policy’; ‘Knife in the Back of Trump’s Base’

“Amnesties are always bad policy,” said Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State and 2018 gubernatorial candidate for Kansas. He described acceptance of a “DACA-style amnesty” in the absence of implementation of “extraordinary” immigration enforcement and border security measures — including ending chain migration, implementation of a national mandate for use of E-Verify by employers, and construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border — as a betrayal of President Donald Trump’s promises to his … Read entire article »
