Democrat Logic

On Feb 7, 2017, the Washington Post ran an op-ed written by a woman who claims she worked for Hardee’s for many years.

In it, she argued that Andrew Puzder, CEO of the restaurant chain, is unfit to be head of the Labor Department, because he takes home millions while his employees allegedly live in homeless shelters.

How much should we believe about this woman’s story when she misspelled the name of her own son and claimed Puzder forced her to work during a non-existent hurricane?

How much should we care about this woman’s story, given the undeniable fact that counter workers at fast food joints get low wages and lousy benefits, because their jobs require virtually no education or skill?

These are entry level jobs, the kinds of work that teens and newcomers can get to establish that they’re reliable workers.  After working at one of these jobs, people are supposed to advance to better paying gigs.

The family seems to have learned nothing about the work world, since she says her misspelled son now works for McDonald’s.

She says a minimum wage of $15 is a matter of “justice.”

No, honey.  It’s a matter of economics, which is something Puzder understands and you clearly do not.

ISIS PIGS … and where are all the feminists?!

2014-isis-sex-slave-price-list

The UN envoy has also reported the best looking Yazidi virgins are sent to the Islamic State’s adopted capital of Raqqa in Syria where they are stripped naked and sold to the highest bidder.

Women who have managed to escape their abusive captors tell of the pain and suffering they endured under ISIS rule.

“He [the man who bought her] told me he was going to rape me that same day, however ill I made myself. He took me home, tied up my hands and feet, and raped me.

He raped me about five times a day. My sister was barely 14 when they raped her… I could hear her screaming but I couldn’t do anything as I was tied up.”

Some of these abused women and girls have been so severely and irreparably traumatized that they have been driven to end their own lives.

A Kurdish official recently reported that ISIS fanatics executed 19 women for refusing to have sex with its fighters.

Liberal Hypocritical Protests

It wasn’t cute in Wal*Mart.  It’s appalling in the United States Congress.

liberal-protests

In 2013, Senator Schumer justified Harry Reid’s elimination of the filibuster saying, “Just about everyone in America, Democrat, Republican, liberal, conservative, believe that once you elect a president he deserves his choices to run the executive branch.”

About the “Nutty 9th”

9th-circuit-map

Trump’s immigration order was banned by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, the SLOWEST of the 12 federal appeals courts. 

Though they typically take 15 months to hand down a decision, they somehow or other found time to squeeze in an immediate judgment against Trump’s executive order, maybe because eighteen of the court’s 25 active judges have been appointed by Democrats.

Former President Barack Obama appointed seven of them.

The 9th is unaffectionately known as the “nutty 9th”, because it is the most liberal and MOST REVERSED court in the nation.

An average of EIGHTY PERCENT of its decisions get OVERTURNED!

Republicans in both House and Senate have introduced similar (though slightly different) bills to reduce the size of the 9th and create a new 13th circuit court.  

Even if the 9th weren’t a ridiculous clown show of judicial activism, its jurisdiction needs to be pared down.  Eleven of them cover 80% of the population; the 9th covers 20%That’s just dumb and it needs to be rectified.

2017_02-09-travel-ban-ruling

Judge Napolitano on travel ban ruling:  “The Constitution assigns the decision-making for foreign policy exclusively to the President; even Congress has a subordinate role.”

“The President has a lot of tools that the Congress has given him. One of the tools is the statute that he read yesterday, which we’ve all been talking about, which was exercised by President Carter and by President Obama, a blanket ban on immigrants from given places. The statute specifically says ‘the President on his own by proclamation,’ meaning he doesn’t have to consult with anybody else, ‘can make this decision.’ The decision to ban is not reviewable; it’s not justiciable.  Judges are incapable of second-guessing the President on it.”

This Makes My Blood Boil

I AM SO SICK OF THIS SHIT I COULD PUKE!!!

These leftist bastards get their rocks off bullying people for no better reason than they can’t always get their own way.
Betsy DeVos, the new Education Secretary made a stop for a conference at a Title I school, for mostly lower income students and was greeted with the usual pack of mouthbreathing vermin.

Protesters initially block DeVos from entering DC school
DeVos later made it into Jefferson Middle School Academy in Southwest D.C. for her first visit as secretary to a public school. This was only after a teacher/parent “vigil” blocked the road by the front entrance, and a handful of Black Lives Matter protesters caused problems when DeVos tried to enter through the back entrance.

Protesters shouted “shame, shame” at the secretary as she was led back into her vehicle. One holding a Black Lives Matter sign then stood in front of the van, but was scolded by fellow protesters to “let her leave,” and he stepped aside.

The disruption is the latest in a series of protests against Trump administration officials and policies. DeVos’ nomination was fiercely opposed by teachers unions and Democratic lawmakers in large part over her long support for charter schools and other public school alternatives.

Protesters block DeVos from entering DC school

“Keep giving money to senators and buying your way to the position,” one man holding a Black Lives Matter sign says to her, according to a video from ABC reporter Sam Sweeney. “I hope you’re proud of yourself.”

“Go back,” the protestor yells and she enters the car. “Shame! Shame! Shame!”

DeVos was reportedly able to eventually enter the school for an event that included D.C. schools chancellor.
The GOP mega-donor was met with fierce opposition from Democrats and teachers unions who voiced opposition to her support for charter schools and tuition vouchers.

Senate Democrats held an all-night debate to protest DeVos’s nomination ahead of her confirmation vote.

“This is a sad day for children,” the American Federation of Teachers president said in a statement following DeVos’s confirmation.

IT’S GOING TO BE LIKE THIS ANYTIME A TRUMP APPOINTEE LEAVES HIS HOUSE. THEY’LL BE HOUNDED, HARASSED, AND IN NEED OF ARMED SECURITY BECAUSE OF THIS MINDLESS, SOULLESS RABBLE.
DEVOS IS DESPISED BY THE UNIONS BECAUSE SHE INTENDS TO INITIATE VOUCHER PROGRAMS FOR LOW-INCOME STUDENTS, THREATENING THEIR HOBBY OF INDOCTRINATING CHILDREN RATHER THAN DO THE JOB OF TEACHING THEM.
I’M JUST SICK TO DEATH OF LIBERALS ASSAULTING ANYONE THEY DON’T AGREE WITH.
RANT OVER.

Be Careful What You Wish For

One thing is clear. If the miserable slug from Nevada had not undone the filibuster in his zeal to get rafts of Obama judicial nominees, President Trump would not have a single cabinet member confirmed. Not a one.

  • Education Secretary: Betsy DeVos confirmed on a voted 51-50.
  • Attorney General: Jeff Sessions confirmed 52-47.
  • HHS Secretary: Tom Price confirmed 52-47.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, the injunction against the travel ban was upheld by the ninth circuit by a margin of 3-0.

Sessions had not yet been confirmed and the lawyers from the Justice Department who argued the case were holdovers from the Obama regime, so there was no real motivation to put much effort in their argument.

It is paramount that the Republicans get Neil Gorsuch confirmed to SCOTUS before the case is heard there. With a 4-4 split, if Kennedy sides with the originalists in deciding such action is within the purview of presidential power, the lower court ruling would stand. It will eventually be reinstated, but the when is unknown.

Dianne Feinstein Regrets Filibuster Reform as Senate Confirms More Trump Cabinet Picks
The Senate confirmed Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State with 56 votes; Jeff Sessions as Attorney General with 52 votes; and Betsy DeVos, who barely reached a majority of 51 votes without Vice President Mike Pence’s deciding vote to confirm her as Secretary of Education.

“As we look back, it may well have been better to not have changed the rules.”

Some Democrats remain unapologetic about the decision, however. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) told IJR he maintains that filibuster reform was essential:

“At the time I thought, ‘I might serve here with a Republican president and I might serve here when there’s a Republican majority.’  We were in a situation where positions that were really important were going vacant for years at a time.”

9th Circuit Refuses to Reinstate Immigration Pause; ‘We Beat You,’ Gov. Tells Trump
Moments after the ruling, Trump tweeted, “SEE YOU IN COURT,” adding that “THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”

In response, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat who leads one of the states that challenged the ban, said: “Mr. President, we just saw you in court, and we beat you.”

The court battle is far from over. An appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court seems likely. That could put the decision in the hands of a divided court that has a vacancy.

Trump’s nominee, Neil Gorsuch, is unlikely to be confirmed in time to take part in any consideration of the ban, which was set to expire in 90 days unless it is changed.

Schumer: ‘We Think We Have Done a Real Service to America’ by Vilifying Trump’s Nominees
Senate Democrats flew a restaurant worker all the way from Los Angeles to Washington on Thursday, to help them portray President Trump’s nominee for Labor Secretary not only as “unqualified,” but also as someone who steals money from workers; looks the other way when workers are sexually harassed; forces people to work for free; punishes them for calling in sick; and fights against raising the minimum wage.

“Puzder called us the worst of the worst and the bottom of the pool. I work myself to the bone just to survive. Why would we want someone who think so little of workers in charge of policies that could impact all of us?” the allegedly victimized woman asked.

On Thursday, Schumer told the same news conference, “It’s disgraceful to put ‘secretary of labor’ and ‘Puzder’ in the same sentence, given his views.”

Schumer said Democrats hope they can force the withdrawal of Puzder’s nomination, but even if they can’t, it’s all about laying the groundwork to stymie the Trump administration:

While You Were Sleeping, Tom Price Was Confirmed As Health And Human Services Secretary
When Jeff Sessions was confirmed to be the 84th Attorney General of the United States Wednesday night, a vote was held to move Rep. Tom Price’s (R-GA) Health and Human Services nomination forward for a final vote.  Around 2:15 A.M this morning Price was confirmed in a 52-47 vote.

Liberal Ninth Circuit Court Is Overturned in Recent Years 80% of Time

The Ninth Circuit Court ruled against President Trump and continued to block his travel ban on Thursday.  The Ninth Circuit is the most liberal court in the country — and is the most reversed court in the country.

2010, perhaps seeking to reclaim its position at the top of the heap, the Ninth Circuit was reversed a startling 19 times (79 percent), three times as many reversals as most circuits had cases before the Supreme Court. The same pattern continued in the 2011 (71 percent) and 2012 terms (86 percent), when the Ninth Circuit was reversed more than twice as many times as most circuits had cases before the Court.
