Last month an elected representative publicly stated that revenge is a part of her motivation and agenda when Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) told a constituent gathering in Los Angeles that she is “going to do to you what you did to us.” The “you” Waters was referring to are players in the mortgage and banking industry. The odd twist here is that Waters is planning revenge on institutions for doing what she herself instructed them to do.
Waters, who was easily re-elected in the 2018 midterms with nearly 76% of votes cast, represents California’s 43rd congressional district which includes much of south-central Los Angeles. She appears poised to chair the House Financial Services Committee when Democrats assume control of the House of Representatives in January.
A sitting House representative threatening U.S. businesses with retribution is remarkable enough, but retribution for what?
Apart from the dismissal of personal responsibility inherent in the idea that people were somehow forced into purchasing something they couldn’t afford, of note here is how the situation came about in the first place; how citizens of Waters’ community found themselves able to qualify for mortgages that were beyond their financial means. Making such loans is not in a lending institution’s best interests, so why would one do it? The institutions did it because Maxine Waters, among others, forced them to.
Judicial Nightmare: Jeff Flake Has Pretty Much Destroyed His Party’s Agenda On Judges This Year
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is leaving, but not quietly. The immensely unpopular Republican has decided to totally trash his party’s judicial agenda. Flake is the key 11th vote on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and he’s not budging until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell holds a binding vote on a bill protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Department of Justice’s Russia investigation. It’s frustrating. It’s deplorable. And it just comes to show you why Flake would never have won re-election if he decided to execute a suicidal banzai charge concerning that effort.
What a duplicitous little prick
Republican Sen. Flake Praises Trump For His Statement On H.W. Bush
Flake’s feud with the president has gone on for quite some time. Just last month, Flake announced his intentions to vote against any judicial nominee if special counsel Robert Mueller was not protected by Congress. (RELATED: Jeff Flake Says ‘Not A Chance’ He Could Win Senate Campaign Due To One Political Move)
At the end of November, the Senate Judiciary Committee canceled the committee’s panel votes on nearly two dozen scheduled judicial nominees, knowing that the nominees would not receive the necessary votes without Flake.
Hillary Clinton Looks Spitting Mad as President Trump and Melania Enter Bush Sr.’s Funeral
Or maybe that’s just her natural face?
She never was a good loser.
Oh… And Obama looks arrogant as hell.
Hillary Clinton Snubs First Lady Melania at Bush Funeral
The Trumps shook hands with Barack and Michelle Obama but when First Lady Melania leaned forward to shake hands with and greet the Clintons, Hillary gave her the cold shoulder.
Bill Clinton was welcoming and shook Melania’s hand but Hillary Clinton snubbed the First Lady – she didn’t lean forward to shake her hand nor did she even give her a smile. Hillary just nodded with a scowl on her face.
In contrast, when George W. Bush walked in, Hillary Clinton stood up, smiled and shook his hand.
Hillary is jealous of Melania Trump’s beauty – she had that same scowl on her face during Donald Trump’s inauguration when she caught her husband Bill admiring Melania’s beauty.
FACEBOOK: Beyond the pale — Facebook puts this warning on “especially graphic or violent content so that it is not available to people under the age of eighteen and so that people are aware of the graphic or violent nature before they click to see it.” Below: What was under the “safe space” protective covering. This is real. I saw it yesterday myself.
CHURCH OF THE DAMNED: The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has developed generally liberal views on abortion, homosexuality and universalism. Bolz-Weber said her denomination has largely supported her.
HOW HW BECAME PROLIFE: And what he did for the unborn — When he was running again Reagan for the nomination, George H.W. Bush was pro-abortion. It’s one of the reasons he lost. This article talks about what happened to make him a staunch supporter of the rights of the unborn.
MEDIA TDS: The Bush Funeral –– New York Times’ White House correspondent Katie Rogers seemed disappointed that the Bush family didn’t use George H.W. Bush’s funeral to take shots at Donald Trump. She needn’t have worried; “The Daily Show” and WaPo were plenty happy to pick up the slack.
BERNIE BUSTED: $300,000 on private jet –– Socialist and climate alarmist Bernie Sanders spent $300,000 on private jets crisscrossing the nation to preach to us about the danger excess carbon emissions pose to our planet.
MORE DEMOCRAT HYPOCRISY: Paying interns –– According Pay Our Interns, a nonprofit group, 51 percent of Senate Republicans pay their interns, as opposed to 31 percent of Senate Democrats. On the House side of things, 8 percent of Republicans pay their interns, compared to 3.5 percent of Democrats. And, to make things even more ironic, the majority of Democrats who support a $15/hour minimum wage didn’t pay their interns.
HOW REFRESHING: Truth from a Democrat — “If the economy continues strong, Trump will be reelected. The Democrats (my party) have been in chaos since the 2016 election and have no coherent message except Trump hatred. Despite the vast pack of potential candidates, no one yet seems to have the edge. I had high hopes for Kamala Harris, but she missed a huge opportunity to play a moderating, statesmanlike role and has already imprinted an image of herself as a ruthless inquisitor that will make it hard for her to pull voters across party lines.
“Screechy Elizabeth Warren has never had a snowball’s chance in hell to appeal beyond upper-middle-class professionals of her glossy stripe. Kirsten Gillibrand is a wobbly mediocrity. Cory Booker has all the gravitas of a cork. Andrew Cuomo is a yapping puppy with a long, muddy bullyboy tail. Both Bernie Sanders (for whom I voted in the 2016 primaries) and Joe Biden (who would have won the election had Obama not cut him off at the knees) are way too old and creaky.”
— Camille Paglia on the 2020 Democrat field
FACEBOOK HYPOCRISY: Facebook is cracking down on the Canadian pro-life group responsible for a series of hysterically funny viral hit videos like the one ABOVE. They claim the videos are “discriminatory.” Methinks their real problem is that the videos are successful.
2020: Zing! Graham elaborated: “I think he would be a tough opponent but I think President Trump will win. Because if you like what Biden has to offer, Clinton wouldn’t have gotten beat because she was an extension of that way of doing business. If you like looking weak throughout the world as Obama and Biden looked, if you like a stagnant economy, where it’s a command and control economy and the wages are not growing, then go back that way.”
CATHOLIC MYTHS: The rest of the story — On Sunday, during Ben Shapiro’s interview with Protestant pastor John MacArthur, MacArthur repeated a number of anti-Catholic myths. Trent Horn at Catholic Answers responds at the link below.
OFFENDING VEGANS: In response to vegans proposing meat-based expressions like “bring home the bacon” be banned, Republican Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch’s office sent out video of him eating bacon … in slow motion. LOL!!
This Could Be The Last Year For Durham’s Christmas Tree Tradition
Durham’s Human Rights Commission has recommended ceasing the longtime tradition, with members saying it is associated with the Christian faith and Christmas celebrations, which may be exclusionary to some people who follow different faiths or are atheist.
The issue came up this year because Rabbi Berel Slavaticki at the UNH & Seacoast Chabad Jewish Center asked to place a 9-foot menorah in the same public park on Main Street where the tree is lit.
Slavaticki was asked to complete an application for a permit, which was denied by Town Administrator Todd Selig because of concerns about vandalism and public safety. It was agreed that Slavaticki could host a one-time ceremony at a different public park, which took place Sunday evening, the first night of Hanukkah
Satanic Sculpture Installed At Illinois Statehouse, Just In Time For The Holidays
In the Illinois Capitol rotunda this month, several traditions are being celebrated. There’s a Nativity scene for Christmas, a menorah for Hanukkah, and then something a little different: an arm holding an apple, with a snake coiled around it.
It’s a gift from the Chicago branch of The Satanic Temple. Called “Snaketivity,” the work also has a sign that reads “Knowledge Is The Greatest Gift.”
Nearby stands a sign in which the state offers a civics lesson — and explains it didn’t have much of a choice:
“The State of Illinois is required by the First Amendment of the United States Constitution to allow temporary, public displays in the state capitol so long as these displays are not paid for by taxpayer dollars. Because the first floor of the Capitol Rotunda is a public place, state officials cannot legally censor the content of speech or displays. The United States Supreme Court has held that public officials may legally impose reasonable time, place and manner restrictions regarding displays and speeches, but no regulation can be based on the content of the speech.”
Except for Scriptures,Crucifixes or anything related to Judeo Christians. Those can be banned on the basis of one butthurt snowflake.
Warning: if you get an e-mail that says it contains naked pictures of Nancy Pelosi;
DO NOT OPEN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It contains naked pictures of Nancy Pelosi.
David Bossie: House Democrats plan a witch hunt against Trump
After Pelosi and her new majority are sworn-in, their subpoena cannon will be loaded and pointed at the White House. The Democrats will mount one politically driven investigation after another, backed by billionaires George Soros and Tom Steyer, along with other rich far-left donors.
The major problem for this incoming Democratic-controlled House is that the Democrats have already concluded that their investigations should all come to the conclusion that President Trump must be impeached.
The liberals who will soon control the House have spent two years trying to get to this moment and are foaming at the mouth now that it’s here. They have set expectations way too high and are poised to overreach and make clumsy mistake after clumsy mistake along the way. This crew has proven repeatedly that they can’t help themselves
Transgender Miss Universe Contestant Now Odds-On Favorite To Win, Has Message For Trump, World
“If they give me the crown, it would show trans women are just as much women as cis women.”
The first ever transgender Miss Universe contestant is now the odds-on favorite to win, and according to some bookmakers, it’s not even close. And the would-be Miss Universe is using the platform to send not just a “message” to Trump, but the world.
After winning the 2018 Miss Universe Spain pageant, Angela Ponce, a biological male who has undergone gender reassignment surgery and hormone therapy, has not only become the first trans contestant in the Miss Universe competition, but the odds makers’ hands-down favorite.
Ungrateful Honduran Illegal Migrant Who Complained About Mexican “Pig Food” — Is Seen Dining in Dallas, Texas
In November ungrateful Honduran migrant “Lady Frijoles” upset her Mexican caretakers when she complained to reporters about the free beans and tortillas provided to the members of the caravan camping out in Tijuana, Mexico.
It was later discovered the woman was hardly a “refugee” and lived a comfortable life in Honduras.
Mirian Celaya, the infamous “Lady Frijoles,” later went missing. Of course, many leftists and illegal migrant supporters thought she was the victim of violence.
This weekend Mirian was filmed in Dallas, Texas eating at a local restaurant.
Her sister posted video on Instagram of the two sisters in Dallas.
In the spirit of the season,you will be happy to hear this leech is now in America with her 9 kids to live out her days living off taxpayer handouts. And griping about the free food.
