Waters’ Campaign Wrote Off Over $10,000 Spent on ‘Hamilton’ Tickets as Fundraising

44 years … 44 long years she’s been getting away with this because her voters only care that she’s black.

[CtH: Methinks the real power behind her throne (Soros et al.?) only care that she’s greedy and stupid and easy to control.]

The House campaign committee Citizens for Waters paid $10,747.15 for the tickets for the popular Broadway show on Aug. 26, according to a Federal Election Commission report of receipts and disbursements.

Ahead of Halloween, universities nationwide tell students what not to wear
“Unacceptable costumes” listed on a University of St. Thomas diversity flier are “wearing Native American headdresses, dressing up as a ‘Mexican’ by wearing a sombrero, dressing as a ‘geisha,’ any form of blackface.”
“Cultural appropriation is defined as ‘the act of taking intellectual and cultural expressions from a culture that is not your own, without showing that you understand or respect the culture,’” explains a University of St. Thomas diversity memo to students.

[CtH: They’re very, very selective about whose culture is inviolable, so I’m guessing they don’t have anything in there about dressing up as an Irish leprechaun, an Italian mobster, a German Nazi, etc. etc. ]

George Lopez Booed For Anti-Trump Jokes At Charity Event

According to a person at the event, the CEO of Liberty Media, Greg Maffei, asked Lopez “nicely to stop making Trump jokes … George doesn’t, continues, gets booed.”
“Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but that doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men,” Lopez responded to the request.


HE WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO LAND A HIT TV SHOW. NOW HE LOVES RUBBING ANGLOS’ NOSES IN IT.

Video posted Saturday on YouTube shows the comedian apologizing for “bringing politics to an event.” Then slams the audience for their “white privilege.”
“Listen, it’s about the kids,” he added. “I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America–it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege, but yes I’m sorry. If I was a minority in Denver I would be upset too.”

HE WAS PAID $275,000 FOR HIS APPEARANCE AT THIS CHARITY EVENT.

[CtH: “White privilege” now means having the sacred right to shut up while your “betters” bully you.  Gee, thanks, SJWs!  It’s just what I always wanted!  Not.]

McCain makes speech blasting ‘half-baked’ nationalism

PLEASE GET THE HELL OFF THE STAGE… WE’RE SICK OF YOU.

The former POW and Arizona Republican called the United States “the last best hope on earth” while giving an acceptance speech for the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal, according to Politico.
While not mentioning President Trump by name, McCain’s speech was a sharp contrast to Trump’s habits of shunning international institutions such as NATO and the United Nations.

THE AWARD WAS PRESENTED BY HIS CLOSE PERSONAL JERKOFF BUDDY, JOE BIDEN.

[CtH: If half of what his fellow POWs say about him is true, then he’d know ALL ABOUT half-baked patriotism.]

Four GOP Senators Standing in the Way of Progress


COLLINS DECIDED TO STAY IN THE SENATE AND HELP McCAIN SCREW OVER THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Four Republican senators hold and have held our country in their hands for most of this year by themselves. They obstruct progress by wielding far too much power than their positions and number merit. They are Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Rand Paul of Kentucky, and John McCain of Arizona.

These four prevented healthcare reform and they now stand in the way of tax reform.

Brigitte Gabriel: ‘Refugee Resettlement’ is ‘About Supplying Cheap Labor’ at U.S. Taxpayer Expense

“Here’s what I mean by that: Most refugees are on some type of welfare and that makes anyone who employs them, any company that employs them, eligible for the federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit. An employer has a greater incentive to hire a refugee because the salary is subsidized by the government, than hiring a good, hard-working American who is looking for a job.”

Seriously? Hillary Clinton Says She Was “Running Down Stairs in Heels With Cup of Coffee” When She Broke Toe
Hillary Clinton canceled her interview with the BBC today.  She said, “I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe. I’ve received excellent care from your excellent health service.”
Seriously?  Does anyone believe that?

Judge REFUSES to dismiss, says Menendez case going to JURY TRIAL!

DON’T EXPECT TO HEAR A WORD OF THIS FROM THE LSM.

After raising U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez’s hopes last week, a federal judge crushed them on Monday morning.
U.S. District Court Judge William Walls refused to toss any of the 18 charges in the corruption case against U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez, despite last week casting doubt on a legal theory that’s at the heart of the prosecution’s case.

Deal for Bowe Bergdahl looks worse and worse

To garner sympathy from the sentencing judge, Bergdahl’s defense team is expected to play up his alleged mental health problems, including what they claim is paranoia and schizophrenia.
However, Army shrinks found Bergdahl does not suffer from psychological problems that would prevent him from standing trial. And last month, Bergdahl’s lawyers failed to produce for prosecutors mental health records and other evidence detailing any serious condition.

[CtH: SUCH a SHAME that his conviction will come too late for BHO to pardon him. NOT.]

President Trump to Hillary Clinton: “Hillary, Please Run Again,” In 2020

EPA Chief Scott Pruitt Ends ‘Abusive’ Obama ‘Sue & Settle’ Policy

Under previous administrations, particularly the Obama administration, special interest environmental groups such as the Sierra Club used lawsuits to force the EPA and other federal agencies to issue regulations that advance their climate change agenda. Those groups would sue the EPA and ask the court to compel the agency to enact new environmental regulations.
Critics say the “sue and settle” policy amounts to regulation through litigation, which allowed former EPA administrations to skirt around the agency’s limited rulemaking authority.

    Leftists planning to accelerate Chicago’s decline

    Before the world’s eyes, Venezuela starves and collapses into a brutish fight for daily survival, all because price controls have pushed prices below the cost of production. When that happens, no more production, which means starvation, no toilet paper, and increasing panic and repression.

    With rent control, the process takes a bit longer. First, maintenance is cut by landlords, because rent revenue does not cover everything. Then properties deteriorate. Sooner or later, the existence of the building becomes a liability, and it will burn or otherwise be removed from the housing stock because nobody will take care of a building that does not generate net positive revenue.
    Full list of rattiest cities in U.S.:
    1. Chicago
    2. New York
    3. Los Angeles
    4. San Francisco – Oakland
    5. Washington, DC
    6. Philadelphia
    7. Detroit
    8. Baltimore

    In fairness, Chicago has been fighting rats of all sorts for years. Who can forget this classic picture of the (now incarcerated) governor of Illinois, taking out the garbage in his alley

      Just like increases in the minimum wage, rent control favors only those who benefit from it immediately. Long term, they both hurt everybody.

    Trump dismantles Obama’s ‘imperial’ presidency, rescinds dubious orders

    Unable to work with a Republican-led Congress for most of his presidency, Mr. Obama did what he could with his presidential “pen and phone,” issuing executive orders, rules and regulations that in many cases could be overturned by another stroke of the pen — this time by a Republican president. Long before Mr. Obama left office, Republicans were accusing him of overreaching presidential authority, and Mr. Trump was vowing to overturn his unilateral decisions.

    At a Clinton campaign rally in Cleveland in October 2016, a few weeks before Election Day, Mr. Obama tried to fire up Democratic voters with a plea that his legacy was hanging in the balance on issues such as climate change and health care.

    Conservative, Inc., Is Being Replaced By Us Militant Normals

    Exhibit A is John McCain, who ran ads touting how he was leading the way in opposing Obamacare only to give it aid and comfort when someone in the White House would actual sign its repeal. He’s the guy the establishment designated to lose to Barack Obama in 2008, and he was sure up to the task. But in retrospect, thank goodness, because McCain’s inevitable presidential betrayal of conservatives by breaking his word then and treating GOP voters like he treated his first wife would have done exponentially more damage to conservatism than Trump being prevented from keeping his word today ever could.

    Federal Government Workers Donating Overwhelmingly to Democrats

    Government workers shunned Donald Trump while giving generously to Hillary Clinton’s campaign during the 2016 presidential cycle, The Hill reported last October.

    The publication noted that while Republicans tend to do worse with government workers, Trump received just 5 percent of all federal government donations compared to Mitt Romney’s 14 percent in 2012. Government workers at 14 agencies gave a total of $2 million during the last presidential cycle with $1.9 million—or 95 percent—going to Clinton.

    Schweizer on Decline in Clinton Fdn Fundraising: With Nothing to Sell, People Are Not Going to Give Money

    T]hey have two arms of this — the Clinton Foundation and then, of course, the Clinton Global Initiative, CGI,” he explained. “CGI shut down after the 2016 election. It no longer exists. And that was really the central marketplace for influence peddling. Clinton Foundation has tried to position itself in a different way. They tried to amass an endowment over the last couple of years, so they probably got $150 million parked away. So, they can certainly give this money to someone else. They have it.”

    Oh…yes…

    That WEDDING DRESS

    Perhaps…

    That’s where Harvey Weinstein’s donation of $250K to the Clinton Foundation went

    To help pay for Chelsea’s wedding dress

    After all the Clinton’s say they cannot return the money

    It was already spent on Charity or did they say Chelsea? 🤔

    Back when then-President Bill Clinton was immersed in the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal, Clinton’s fellow serial sex predator Harvey Weinstein donated the maximum amount of $10,000 to Clinton’s legal defense fund.

    The gotcha media tried to slam Trump about his calls to the families of fallen soldiers. Trump pushed back, saying previous presidents hadn’t called the bereaved.

    “You could ask General Kelly if he got a call from Obama.”

    Pro-Obama, anti-Trump WaPo tried to find evidence that Obama had called the families of fallen soldiers. They couldn’t do it.

    And yes, it seems the Lefties need to tuck their outrage back where it belongs, because Trump was right. Obama did not call General Kelly after his son died in Afghanistan.
