Meow-Hiss! Speaker Nan Throws Shade at AOC & 'The Squad'.

Watching the many rifts within the Democratic Party grow is one of the few things about politics that actually bring some small joy these days. In one case, Nancy Pelosi has understandably grown tired of the immature and embarrassing antics of Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Presley, and of course, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Pelosi called ‘The Squad’ out for being all talk and no walk, spending far more time ‘tweeting’ than actually getting anything done. It would appear the House Speaker is especially unimpressed with their behavior in social media.

She tried to be chummy with the upstart freshmen for a Rolling Stone cover shoot, but the new kids on the block have gone to great lengths, like introducing impassible legislation, etc, to make things difficult for her. Pelosi DARED criticize the flailing foursome dropping the mic and an anvil in a Mo Dowd NYT interview:
"Pelosi says ⁦⁦@AOC⁩, ⁦@IlhanMN⁩, ⁦@AyannaPressley⁩ and ⁦⁦@RashidaTlaib “have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got."- @Josh Jamison

AOC was front and center in defense of herself and radical allies with a little clapback of her own....and it’s just painful.

Twitter is public sentiment? No, it’s more like sewer of noise on top of noise,  but whatever helps her sleep better at night.....

She might want to consider doing a little dialin' for dollars or investing in some ads because if her own district polling is any indication, she could very well get her ass un-elected come 2020.

Guess Pelosi didn’t have time to fake up a bunch of photos in front of an empty, fenced parking lot or go down to the border and claim a bunch of horrible things about CBP officers. I don't think it's a good idea to trust a woman women who spew antisemitism, cry at an empty parking lot, who said women were being forced to drink out of toilets, and who voted AGAINST funding Humanitarian Aid to help these people at the border.

Pelosi is going to crush these crazy broads like grapes.

Basement Dwelling Fascist Dictate Their Own Free Speech Rules to The Media

To suggest at this point that terms like oblivious, contradictory, or hypocritical can be applied to the domestic terrorist group Antifa would require using another term — redundant. The group of queers, punks and outcast, along with their violent cop hating black allies all claiming it's doing the noble work of beating back the Nazi scourge in this country has been consistently the source of the very acts and behavior it says it has been charged with defeating.

Today in Washington D.C. has been no different. The reason for the gathering is to serve as a counter-protest to an organized free speech rally. “They want to use this opportunity to weaponize free speech!” Nothing better to see than groups opposing something and displaying a functional ignorance of the issue over which they are upset, saying something akin to “We don’t like how they use free speech!” bears some similarity to Orwellian language.

Better still is that in the areas where Antifa members have been permitted to organize they are distributing flyers with listed rules they want to enforce on anyone from the media. Soak that in: at a rally where people are calling for free speech the group that pledges to combat oppressive forces is dictating what the press will be forbidden from doing.

They want to forbid any members of the media who will not agree to their terms from entering the area where they are organized. A cute stipulation, considering they had to obtain a permit in order to congregate on what is public property.  

The third entry is especially precious. They imply that anything filmed against their will can be used in court, because they worry something incriminating could be recorded and will strive to obtain that footage through subpoena.

How does anyone not laugh at a group that calls itself “Anti Fascist” while it attempts to employ stridently fascistic techniques? Today they are marching in the streets of D.C., claiming the streets belong to them, and they create vandalism in their wake. Attempting to silence the media during a free speech rally only deepens the humor these thugs generate in their attempt at being taken seriously.

NTY's Blow: There Are Tanks In The Nation’s Capital And Concentration Camps At Its Border’

RS -Yes, the New York Times Charles Blow really said it. He tweeted, “Let this sink in: There are tanks in the nation’s capital and concentration camps at its border. The drift to [sic] toward the unimaginable is unmistakable.”

What is it exactly about patriotic displays that causes the left to completely lose all sense? The mere sight of a flag to a liberal has become the equivalent of showing a cross to a Satanist or kryptonite to Superman. And the most ironic thing about it is that liberals are running headlong toward a socialist ideology which actually does have the potential to rob them of their freedom.

It’s dangerous when “opinion leaders” such as Charles Blow and AOC make remarks like this. Before long, these phrases, outrageous as they are, will be picked up by other political commentators and politicians and will soon become part of normal conversation, just as terms like “manufactured crisis” have. The left has become increasingly anti-American and they no longer even try to hide it.

But it didn't take long for Patriotic Americans to burn his ass all over the tweeter:
“This is a lunatic take. This manages to insult Holocaust survivors and the US military all in one internet post.” 
“You should leave while you still can Charles.”“I guess you missed JFK’s inauguration.” “Let this sink in.” “The tanks are stationary & unarmed for a July 4th parade.” 
“Our “concentration camps” detain ILLEGAL migrants,& ALLOW THEM TO LEAVE OR APPLY FOR ASYLUM without the murder, slavery,one normally associates with them.@nytimes employs liars/demagogues.” 
“Someday there will be a new Republican president, who you will also breathlessly try to convince us all is Literally Hitler. Pace yourself.” 
“2020 is going to hurt you all so so bad.” 
“Your constant “EVERYTHING IS LITERALLY HITLER” is going to get him re-elected because people are tired of being constantly told they’re evil incarnate just for not being Democrats.” 
“Did you complain this hysterically when Eisenhower, Nixon, Clinton, Reagan, and Bush did it? It’s not the end of the world. Climb back in off the ledge.”
The left has lost all connection to reality, as they sit in the freest, wealthiest nation in the history of the world.

I Wonder If It Ever Dawned On Them to Just Tell the Truth??

US Media Braces for Brutal Year to Come

The consultancy Challenger Gray & Christmas reported this week that media companies, which include movies, television, broadcast and print news, announced plans to cut 15,474 jobs so far this year, of which 11,878 of which were from news organizations. That is nearly three times more than the 4,062 cuts announced in the media sector in 2017 and the highest total since the economic crisis in 2009.

"Members of the media, especially journalists news reporters have had a tough few years," said Andrew Challenger, vice president of the Chicago-based firm. Many jobs were already in jeopardy due to business models akin to severe cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome.  Some of the notable events this year included the sale of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, resulting in the loss of most of the 250 newsroom jobs. But the troubles have also impacted the digital sector with BuzzFeed cutting 200 employees in January and Verizon eliminating 800 jobs in its media division, which includes Yahoo, AOL, and HuffPost.

Job cuts and consolidations are likely to continue until companies are able to find ways to create growth in revenue streams. Subscription-based models will only work if news organizations can convince consumers of the importance and value of their news. *snork* Another possibility for media companies is to monetize users' personal data. But there are are obvious ethical implications and potential legal issues,  especially as privacy laws begin to pass in various jurisdictions across the country. Ultimately, the quality of the country's news will start to decline if users refuse to pay for it. You know, like stepping in dog shit and monetarily rewarding the dog......

From His Booster Seat Robert Reich Proclaims "The Left is Now the 'Center' of American Politics."

Former Clinton Administration Labor Secretary, Robert B. Reich

The last time we visited one of our favorite kickball of the past, Robert Reich, he was on the CNN spouting crazy, claiming the anti-Trump campus unrest of 2017 were actually a right-wing plot to delegitimize liberals. Needless to say, we had a field day with that one. So much so, one DMF reader humorously accused me of abusing short people. But undeterred, today we visited Dr. Reich's site to see what leftist craziness has infected his overly active political imagination. He didn't disappoint.
"Donald Trump, Fox News, and Republicans in Congress label proposals they disagree with “fringe,” “radical,” or “socialist.” Well, let’s see where the American people actually stand:  
"On the economy, 76 percent of Americans favor higher taxes on the super-rich, including over half of registered Republicans. Over 60 percent favor a wealth tax on fortunes of $50 million or more."
Here he cites a Morning Consultant Poll, commissioned by the left leaning Politico magazine. It plays into the childish jealousy of the rich most have buried deep inside. Dr. Reich believes higher taxes and punishing wealth is an answer. When in fact, a wealth Tax is just another Socialist Utopian talking point that drives money offshore and not available business expansions.  If 10% is good enough for God, it's certainly good enough for the Federal gov.    
"What about health care? Well, 70 percent want Medicare for All, which most define as Medicare for anyone who wants it. 60 percent of Republicans support allowing anyone under 65 to buy into Medicare...."
Here he cites a HarrisX poll of only 1,000 respondents. Of course, this was before the recent debates when the Democrats all vowed to give free healthcare to the entire refugee population of the Western hemisphere. It would be interesting to re-poll those same respondents now. I believe the number would drastically change. 
"92 percent want lower prescription drug prices. Over 70 percent think we should be able to buy drugs imported from Canada."
Well DUH! This could and should have become a reality when the ironically name "Affordable Care Act" was written? Where was the Good Dr. when his party rammed down our throats their genus plan. In reality, Barky Obama threw a bone to the Pharmaceutical Industry bypassing this little piece, the most expensive part of anyone's non-surgical healthcare. Oh, and did I mention that despite all the talk of evil money back then, Big Pharma were large contributors to Barky's reelection campaign in 2012. Just sayin."  
"On family issues, more than 80 percent of Americans want paid maternity leave. 79 percent of voters want more affordable child care."
Another Well DUH! Paid Maternity leave is something no one should argue with. Newborns need their nurturin'. The lack of nurturing by two parents is more than evident in the streets of any American city today.  It should be a responsibility of any employer to provide this to working mother's and fathers as part of a health care package if available. I do, and at little extra cost. But the fore mentioned child care, Free government funded day cares are in the minds of the Dr. Reich's, and would be like any liberal programs do, eventually degenerate into non-working Tameka dropping off her chilren to go hang with the gurls at the nail salon at our expense.  The last thing America needs is a Government employee as a babysitter. Generous TAX CREDITS (I know that is a bad word in his world) is the answer so WORKING parents can afford to choose who cares for the little ones. 
"60 percent of Americans support free college tuition for those who meet income requirements."
Here he quotes from a glowing Reuters news story about the progressive movement. No actual link to this statement in the story so the number quoted can't be verified. In our culture, free college admissions will do to Higher Ed what medicare did for healthcare. It works in Europe, but is very selective. And that won't work here. No one ever asks why Universities like Harvard have billions in endowments, but cost so much to go there?? So like with the inception of Medicare & Medicaid, prices will rise quickly because the government treasure door is wide open. 
"62% think climate change is man-made and needs addressing."
It's useless to address this point to a true believer even after all the nonsense that has been exposed in relation to observation of natural earth changes as opposed to the actual evidence. His number is lifted from the Yale Climate Change Communication program. No bias there I'm sure. It's interesting to note that approximately the same number believe in life on other planets, and more than half of them believe in UFO's.  
"84 percent think money has too much influence in politics. 77 percent support limits on campaign spending."
I totally agree with Little Robert on this point. Labor unions extort millions from the members to give to democrat political campaigns and lobbyist, our taxpayers money in the millions are granted to organization such as Plan Parenthood, who in turn flood democrat candidates campaigns, and throw expensive events for their benefits.  And let's not forget the massive amounts of dark money from the slugs of the world like George Soros, that oozes into our  politics to elect leftist race compassionate district attorneys, and judges who are deciding the fate of America society, and bolstering the elections of  useful Idiots like AOC.  Yes Mr. Reich, we agree on this one.
"So why do the powerful call these policy ideas “fringe,” or “radical,” or “socialist?” Money. Many of these initiatives would cost them – requiring either higher taxes or regulations that might cut into their corporate profits. But just remember: the “center” is not halfway between what most Americans want and what Wall Street, and the super-wealthy want. The “center” is what the vast majority of Americans want. Left is Now the "Center" of American Politics."
Yes, Dr. Reich, Americans do see our flaws as a society. But I don't think we are ready to go the way of you and your nitwit socialist friend's one size fits all, bigger government way of thinking. Long memories will reveal that it was primarily leftist ideas and your party that created most of America's ills as they are today.

I'm sure you are a fine fellow, and still riding that title 'Mr. Secretary'. And I bet quite wealthy yourself, cushy job and all in that booster chair at the leftist utopia UC Berkely. But as I half-assed proof read this post, I was reminded of the words of the sassy wise next door neighbor 'Wonllna' of the ancient Television series 'Good Times'..... "NIGGER PLEASE!"

Violence and Intolerance: Gay Pride and Rabid Puppies

While the gays pranced through the streets with their perverted pride parades and protests, some taking time to vandalize Chick-Fil-A, what’s interesting about this weekends Portlandagrad's Antifa’s mob assault of the journalist Andy Ngo isn’t that an organization's premised on recreational thuggery has once again indulged in recreational thuggery. That’s why it exists. What’s interesting is that so many left-leaning journalists have in the past been so eager to excuse or diminish this kind of thuggery and to frame others either as the aggressor or deserving of assault by people with borderline personality disorders.

The implication being that in this case, the poor put-upon Antifa goons, who are all terribly oppressed, felt threatened by the presence of the unimposing Mr. Ngo, and therefore retaliated (albeit pre-emptively) by jumping him from behind, robbing him, and putting him to the jackboot.

The not-at-all-sociopathic world of brass-knuckles and cement milkshakes of Antifa:
“Are you willing to die for YouTube shit? That’s what’s gonna come, man. Death is coming to you, dude. Real shit. Feel that energy? That’s why your heart’s pounding.” 
“You’re inherently violent,” screams an unhinged blue-and-purple-haired woman while repeatedly spitting on people and trying to punch them in the face. 
“Open the borders,” shout the masked bedlamites, while shutting down the pavements and restricting the movement of anyone they suspect of being insufficiently woke and deferential. “Say it loud, say it clear,” they chant. “Refugees are welcome here.” 
All while harassing the gay son of Vietnamese refugees whose home and business were confiscated by communists before being sent to a corrective labor camp, and whom they denounce as “racist, sexist, anti-gay,” and, of course, a “Nazi.”

Left-leaning journalists, commentators and noted Tweeter lefties, our self-imagined betters who tie themselves in rhetorical knots in order to diminish Antifa's assaults on observers and random strangers, often using the words “provocateur” and “antagonist.” Presumably on the basis that if you quietly film acts of mob thuggery by masked leftists, then clearly you deserve an ass-kicking and a stay in hospital. According to a sleazy American muslim Slate contributor, Mr Ngo “created an atmosphere of violence.” It bears repeating that these are not otherwise ordinary people who happen to be misinformed and making bad decisions, let alone heroes struggling bravely under enormous societal duress. There is no argument, no obvious contradiction that would be likely to change their minds or moderate their behavior. They, and their enablers, need to be dealt with with the full force and extent of domestic terrorist laws.

Bernie Sanders Given Honor of Own Native American Name

A Middle Finger News Great Moments in History

Senator Bernie Sanders was invited to address a gathering of the Indian First Nations chiefs in Denver, CO. He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for increasing the standard of living for all of their citizens by totally free government grants for free college educations, free Medicare for all,etc.

He mentioned how he always supported these issues that came forward to him. Although Sanders was vague about the details for the funding of his plans, he spoke eloquently about his ideas if he wins the White House in 2020. At the conclusion of his speech, the chiefs presented him with a beautiful plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, "Walking Eagle."

The proud Sanders accepted the plaque and then returned to Washington. A news reporter asked the chiefs how they came to select the new name they had given to Sanders. They explained that "Walking Eagle" is the name given to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.
