Fake News Monday: No, a Republican-backed bill in South Dakota would NOT make it illegal for doctors to provide health care to transgender minors. Anyone who would believe that is in urgent need of mental health care.
Fake news is sort of like herpes: once it gets into the body politic, it never goes away. It may die down for a while, but it always flares up again.
Speaking of political social diseases, Rep. Jerrold Nadler was on “Face the Nation” Sunday, where he once again induced a flare-up of the fake news trope that Trump colluded with Russia to rig the 2016 election.
This may be the most thoroughly debunked lie in the history of politics. For over two years, media figures assured us that the “walls were closing in” on Trump and his associates as their secular saint Robert Mueller and his team of virulently anti-Trump DC insiders and lawyers turned over every rock and pressured witnesses with bankruptcy and jail to get them to sing (or "compose") – yet after two years and $30 million wasted taxpayer dollars, Mueller finally had to admit that they found no evidence of any American colluding with Russia to influence the 2016 election (they obviously did not look into Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
And now, desperate to lend any legitimacy to the Democrats’ bogus impeachment articles, Nadler is citing “Trump colluded with Russia” as a reason why we should believe that Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. Sorry, but if the best argument you can make for your current lie is to induce a flare-up of your recurring lie, then you have no argument, just a mental disease. Go rub some Valtrex into your head and pipe down.
Say, remember when President Trump was blasted as a racist and a liar and a boob for saying that corruption in Puerto Rico was preventing emergency hurricane aid from getting to the people? Well, here’s the latest on how many government officials have now been fired following the appearance of a Facebook video showing unused emergency aid from Hurricane Maria (bottled water, cots, baby food, etc.) sitting in a warehouse in the city of Ponce where thousands of people have been living in shelters since an earthquake struck two weeks ago.
The excuse from the fired head of emergency management is those supplies were expired and nobody had ordered them destroyed yet. Yes, even though you’ve lost everything, you wouldn’t want to drink expired bottled water or sleep on an expired cot. Of course, that doesn’t answer the question: “Why were they allowed to sit in the warehouse until they expired?”
It seems there is an ever-growing number of once-unthinkable things that people are now expected not only to tolerate but to praise, or else face the wrath of the PC mob. One of them is public libraries hosting “drag queen story hours” for children, in which male adult entertainers dressed as sexualized stereotypes of women are passed off as acceptable children’s entertainers, in an effort to indoctrinate kids and normalize their lifestyle.
Having stated the obvious, I expect that many people are already rushing to their Twitter accounts to send hate and cancel messages my way. But you might want to hold off on that until you hear what someone else had to say about “drag queen story hour.” Quote:
“I have absolutely no idea why you would want that to influence your child. Would you want a stripper or a porn-star to influence your child? It makes no sense at all…A drag queen performs in a night club for adults. There is a lot of filth that goes on, a lot of sexual stuff that goes on, and backstage, there’s a lot of nudity, sex and drugs. Ok? So, I don’t think that this is an avenue you would want your child to explore…To actually get them involved in drag is extremely, extremely irresponsible on your part. And I understand you might want to look like you’re with-it, that you’re cool, that you’re woke, that you’re not a Nazi, that you’re not a homophobe — whatever it may be, but you can raise your child to be just a normal regular child without including them in gay, sexual things.”
Wow, who is politically incorrect/”transphobic” enough to dare say that in 2020?! A Christian pastor? Donald Trump? Ricky Gervais? Me?
No, that’s from a Twitter video that went viral, by San Bernardino-based gay drag performer “Kitty Demure.” Demure went on to say that people who promote pushing children into drag culture are actually harming the gay community, which is already fighting a stereotype of being deviants and pedophiles, and this plays right into that fear.
If liberals want to show how open-minded they are, stop using kids to demonstrate it. Instead, why not hire a drag queen to host the Golden Globes? I nominate Kitty Demure.
Must-read article by Cornell law Prof. William A. Jacobson on how the Democrats hope to turn President Trump’s “impeachment” trial into a repeat of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, with Lev Parnas as the new Julie Swetnick (a dubious, last-minute accuser appearing out of the woodwork to make wild, unsubstantiated claims that nevertheless must be investigated at great length to drag out the proceedings as long as possible and inflict maximum political damage among voters who aren’t paying close attention.)
The New York Times editorial board apparently just couldn’t make up its mind, what with the smorgasbord of leftist pie-in-the-sky to tempt them. So they pigged out by endorsing both Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren for the Democratic nomination. Instapundit has a round-up of interesting takes on their waffling, particularly the chart by Ben McDonald showing 60 years of New York Times editors’ Presidential endorsements. See if you can detect a pattern…
Woman who claimed that she’s Native-American, she was fired for being pregnant, her dad was a janitor, her kids went to public school, she’s the only Democratic Presidential candidate with executive experience, and she can spend tens of trillions of dollars without raising taxes asks why Americans would want a President who lies to them? Good question!
