Dianne Feinstein: ‘People die’ when gov’t shuts down. Will she vote against shutdown? Meh, not sure

**Written by Doug Powers Apparently Sen. Dianne Feinstein didn’t get the memo from her own party that everybody’s already been killed by the repeal of Obama-era net neutrality rules and the passage of the GOP tax bill and there’s nobody left. In spite of that, she’s now warning that if there’s a government shutdown, there will be additional fatalities: Sen. Dianne Feinstein warned Wednesday that when the federal government shuts down “people die, accidents happen” and it’s hard to assess what the impact will be when “necessary functions cease.” The California Democrat made the stark comments in a Capitol Hill hallway interview as she left a caucus lunch where the standoff with Republicans over a government funding bill — known as a continuing resolution or CR — was discussed. Since “people die” … Read entire article »

Insane: Calif. AG threatens legal action against employers who help feds take action on illegals

**Written by Doug Powers Trump could have guaranteed himself re-election if he would have told Jeff Sessions to have this lawless “law enforcement” official arrested during his announcement that federal laws don’t apply to his state: The state’s top cop issued a warning to California employers Thursday that businesses face legal repercussions, including fines up to $10,000, if they assist federal immigration authorities with a potential widespread immigration crackdown. “It’s important, given these rumors that are out there, to let people know – more specifically today, employers – that if they voluntarily start giving up information about their employees or access to their employees in ways that contradict our new California laws, they subject themselves to actions by my office,” state Attorney General Xavier Becerra said at a news conference. “We will prosecute … Read entire article »

Dare to dream: Newsweek renews hope for Hillary fans

**Written by Doug Powers Before beginning, if you like, cue up some suitable background music: Well, you’ve got to give them points for wishful creativity — too bad those don’t transfer to swing state electoral votes: Hillary Clinton could still become president if Russia probe finds conspiracy evidence https://t.co/7fH8dnVS0m pic.twitter.com/F3Wqea3bYC — Newsweek (@Newsweek) January 18, 2018 Hahaha! (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Given that there is “no mechanism in American law for a new election,” nor “a mechanism for correcting the criminal results of the previous election,” Ryan ought to nominate “the person defeated by the treason of his own party, and then step aside, and let her become President,” Lessig went on to say. On Wednesday, Lessig told Newsweek this scenario was still a possibility. Hillary’s biggest fans and the liberal media react to the news: **Written by … Read entire article »

CNN’s chief WH drama queen no longer recognizes America after Trump orders him ‘out!’

**Written by Doug Powers At the conclusion of a White House event this week, CNN’s Jim Acosta just couldn’t help but ask the president if he’s against countries that aren’t “white.” At that point, Trump told him to get “out.” This scene was so entertaining that popcorn should have been served: After that, Acosta barely recognizes the country anymore! (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); As I attempted to ask questions in Roosevelt Room of Trump, WH press aides shouted in my face to drown out my questions. I have never encountered that before. — Jim Acosta (@Acosta) January 16, 2018 What occurred reminded me of something I would see in a different country. Certainly not at the WH.

Dems boycotting Trump SOTU might leave some empty seat opportunity for GOP

**Written by Doug Powers If this trend keeps up, on SOTU night, the Dem side of the chamber will be emptier than the Resistance’s list of actionable impeachment charges: Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) on Monday announced she plans to boycott President Trump’s State of the Union address to Congress at the end of the month, joining a handful of other Democratic lawmakers who are skipping the annual event. “I’m here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to say I will not be going to the State of the Union,” Jayapal said in a video posted on social media. “I think it is absolutely unacceptable to see the racism and the hatred coming out the White House in a way in which this president is fueling the flames of divisiveness across our country,” she added.

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.

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.

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 »

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.
