My latest update from the campaign trail.
REPUBLICAN HISTORY: [1:05] – The first woman to testify before Congress was suffragette and Republican, Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The first feminists were all opposed to abortion. Even the founder of Planned Parenthood opposed it.
VIRGINIA: [6:14] – Thousands of Virginians marched peacefully at the state Capitol to protest an attack on their gun rights. Under some circumstances, a demonstration to protect the Constitution would be considered virtuous. Instead of congratulating the protesters, the Left predicted violence and were disappointed it was peaceful.
BABYLON BEE: Somber members of the press offered their thoughts and prayers that someone would start some violence at the gun rights rally in Virginia today.
“It’s tragic that we live in a country where reporters who are just minding their own business trying to push a narrative can have everything ripped away from them in an instant when protesters refuse to shoot at people.”
FAUXCAHONTAS: Zero Self-Awareness Warren not only said the above, but also claimed to be “the only one running for president whose actually been on the executive side.”
This is clearly false given that Biden was VPOTUS while Bloomberg, Sanders, and Buttigieg have all been mayors. And of course President Trump is running for president and he’s been, you know, POTUS.
Besides which, her claim to “executive side” experience was based on having set up a new federal agency, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, in 2010 for Barack Obama.
She said, “I set up a federal agency. We effectively went from two employees the day I walked in the door to about 1000 and spent a year getting it up and operational.“
She left the agency in 2011 after failing to be confirmed in the post by the Senate.
IOW, she thinks we should all be ooh-ahh impressed that she made the federal government even bigger and more expensive and oppressive.
HILLARY: Hillary Clinton makes her feelings clear about Sen. Bernie Sanders in a new documentary about her career. In Hillary, coming soon from Hulu, she says “nobody likes him” and “nobody wants to work with him.” He’s “a career politician” who “got nothing done.”
“It’s not only him, it’s the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women. And I really hope people are paying attention to that because it should be worrisome that he has permitted this culture — not only permitted, [he] seems to really be very much supporting it.”
