BUDGET: In the 20 years from 1997 to 2017—President Trump’s first in office—America’s national debt nearly quadrupled from just over $5 trillion to more than $20 trillion. Those skyrocketing deficits accompanied a Federal Government that was increasingly unaccountable to its citizens, putting favored interests ahead of U.S. taxpayers.
In 2008, then-Sen. Barack Obama called the $4 trillion in debt accumulated under President George W. Bush “unpatriotic.” Once in the White House, President Obama himself then swelled the national debt by nearly $9 trillion. After losing the presidency in 2016, Democrats once again ramped up their tough talk on the deficit, this time as a means of attacking President Trump and Congressional Republicans.
SOCIALISM IN ACTION: They’re also eating out of garbage trucks – Progressive Democrats like Bernie Sanders and AOC should personally fly fresh drinking water down to these people, then refill their jugs with the sewer water to take home for their own personal use.
DRAIN THE SWAMP: Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) says his patience with the DOJ has worn thin.
On Friday, Collins released the Bruce Ohr testimony transcript online. In it, Ohr says he gave his wife’s opposition research on Trump to the FBI in a flash drive.
On Tuesday, Collins released the Lisa Page testimony transcript online. In it, Page said the FBI was considering charging Hillary Clinton under the Espionage Act for “gross negligence” — until the DOJ flat-out told them “No.”
TUCKER: Kudos! – Far-left, Fox-hating Media Matters unearthed old remarks that Tucker Carlson made on a shock jock’s radio show 10 years ago. Carlson admitted what he said was “naughty,” but said he wouldn’t apologize to the “mob.”
Tucker said: “Rather than express the usual ritual contrition, how about this: I’m on television every weeknight live for an hour. If you want to know what I think, you can watch.”
Brit Hume tweeted out Ad Week’s viewer stats, noting that “Doing well is the best revenge.” Zing!
JUDGES RETIRING FAST: A record number of circuit judges have been confirmed in President Trump’s first two years. But there remains 144 vacancies on the federal bench – 35% more vacancies than when President Trump first took office. And 60% of these vacancies are considered judicial emergencies because of large caseloads waiting for justice.
AOC SUPER CUT: I got through 32 seconds of this. Then my ears started to bleed.
TEXANS RALLY BEHIND NEW DONUT SHOP: AOC keeps telling us how racist “garbage” America is. Yeah, right.
ILHAN OMAR: She’s such a sweetie – Last week, House Democrats refused to specifically condemn Omar’s anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks or strip her of her seat on the Foreign Affairs committee.
- Instead, they passed a watered-down resolution condemning “hateful expressions of intolerance.”
Yesterday, Fox News’ Guerin Hays asked Rep. Omar, “Do you think President Obama is the same as President Trump?”
She replied: “Absolutely not. That is silly to even equate the two. One is human the other is not.”
BORDER: More than 2,000 people in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody are being quarantined amid an outbreak of mumps, chicken pox, influenza, and other infections.
Moonbats are accusing ICE of handing out infected blankets, running Neo Nazi death camps, and committing genocide.
Well, duh. We all KNOW that’s it’s TRUMP, not these unwashed masses who are behind the real border crisis. Just ask any of the umpteen Democrats who have announced they are running for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. They’ll tell ya. And Democrats never, ever lie. /sarc
INFANTICIDE SHOULD BE A 2020 ELECTION ISSUE: One group of Catholics has finally stood up to one of the faux Catholic pro-abortion politicians – For his pro-abortion vote, NY State Sen. James Gaughran has been un-invited to the Irish-American Catholic St. Patrick’s Day parade in Huntington, New York. The local Catholic organization has also asked Gaughran to resign from its membership. It’s about damn time.
DEMOCRAT DEFAULT: If the truth won’t work, lie loudly and often – Ever since Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore called AOC a pompous little twit and said the Green New Deal is basically garbage our good, kind friends in the climate change cult have been shrieking at and about him.
Greenpeace itself even came out and tried to claim Moore wasn’t a co-founder of their organization, except it’s well know he was and, you know, like their own website said so. Or used to. Wikipedia still does … for now.
HILLARY LOVERS CHARGED: Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are among 50 people charged in a $25 million college entrance exam cheating scheme. Wealthy parents paid thousands of dollars to a California man who boosted their children’s chances of gaining entrance into elite colleges, such as Yale and Stanford, by paying people to take tests for their children, bribing test administrators to allow that to happen, and bribing college coaches and administrators to identify the applicants as athletes.
HATE GUNS? Threaten the opposition with gun violence! That’ll learn ’em. – An unidentified gun-control activist was expelled from a hearing on the subject at the Connecticut state capitol on Monday, after she threatened a pro-Second Amendment state lawmaker and NRA officials in a text message spotted by fellow attendees.
“If I had a gun, I’d blow away Sampson and a large group of NRA,” the draft text message reads in a photo tweeted by a local reporter. The woman was presumably referring to Connecticut state senator Rob Sampson, a pro-gun-rights Republican who once earned the NRA’s Defender of Freedom Award.
