Evening Edition - September 9

5 minute read

September 9, 2019

You could be forgiven if, during CNN’s SEVEN-HOUR climate townhall (in which the Democratic presidential hopefuls emitted more hot gas than a 747 full of green activists headed for a climate change conference in Europe), you nodded off and missed Kamala Harris’ applause line that she sued Exxon/Mobil when she was California Attorney General. In fact, she has never sued Exxon/Mobil. 

When pressed, her campaign insisted that she had begun an investigation into Exxon/Mobil.  It was an investigation to see if they’d lied to the public. Sen. Harris might not want to press for “lying to the public” to be treated like a felony since she’s racked up quite a list of whoppers since announcing for the Presidency, some of which are catalogued by Marta Hernandez at the Victory Girls blog:

Another I’d toss in is Harris' claim at the CNN climate townhall that if Senate Republicans didn’t enact the Green New Deal, “as President of the United States, I am prepared to get rid of the filibuster to pass a Green New Deal."

Imagine if Trump had said he would ram through his agenda by executive order and if the Senate got in his way, he’d get rid of the filibuster.  The media would be flummoxed over which way to frame the story: that Trump was a wannabe dictator or that he was so ignorant he didn’t know the President doesn’t make the Senate’s rules.  Friendly media outlets tried to save Harris by claiming she said she would back getting rid of the filibuster, but no, she said “I am prepared to get rid of” it.  Since she’s a lawyer and I assume has at least read the Constitution, the kindest way to interpret that was as a pandering lie.

While “progressives” generally don’t seem to mind lies as long as they hoodwink the voters and advance their agenda, even they rebel against lies to cover up offenses against their PC dogma.  For instance, Harris’ polls took a tumble after they discovered her claims to be a pot-puffing lefty in college clashed with her record of drug prosecutions in California. 

And the latest: when someone at one of her events called President Trump “mentally retarded,” she laughed and replied, “Well said! Well said!”  Of course, the term “retarded” is now considered offensive and politically incorrect, so Harris later claimed she didn’t hear or “process” it at the time (despite replying “Well said!” twice.)  Again, the media offered supportive coverage of that obvious phony excuse.  Can you imagine if someone had said that at a Trump rally about, say, Joe Biden or AOC, and Trump had replied, “Well said”?  It would be covered 24/7 on CNN on weeks, with many long-faced commentators opining that it was grounds for impeachment. 

And can you imagine the media firestorm if Trump had written that word with a Sharpie pen!!

Planned Parenthood fired a knuckleball into their own faces by posting a “body positivity” meme on Instagram that read, “The size of your body doesn’t define your worth!”  As you might imagine, that sparked an avalanche of responses, pointing out the irony that Planned Parenthood is built on the premise that if your body is small enough, you’re worth nothing and can be dismembered. 

https://www.westernjournal.com/planned-parenthood-claims-size-body-doesnt-define-worth-misses-irony/

This isn’t the first time PP posted some liberal piety without recognizing their own complete disregard for it.  For instance, there was this one: “Every person deserves the right to control their body, their life, and their future.”  That is, every person who’s managed to make it past the point of birth without being killed by Planned Parenthood.

Read the full story.  You might also click through to see the post on Instagram, since the responses are great. Many also point out that they were blocked by PP for pointing out their hypocrisy.  So much for respecting everybody’s right to speak their mind.

Tweets of the Day!  Excellent observations on how today’s Democrats claim to love democracy while railing against “populism.”  Which really boils down to “We respect the rights of the people to act, speak and vote the way we think they should.  But God help them if they dare to voice an opinion we don’t like.  Then we’ll call them ‘domestic terrorists,’ like NRA members.”

https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/341323/

Judging by their promises to destroy the US economy, kill jobs, put entire industries out of business, ban affordable food and practically every modern convenience, and make taxes and gasoline and home energy costs skyrocket, a good motto for the entire Democratic presidential slate would be an old quote by Linus from the comic strip, “Peanuts”: 

“I love mankind, it’s people I can’t stand.”

“Beto” O’Rourke has gone from amusingly goofy to downright delusional if he thinks that Americans will happily comply with his plan to confiscate guns.

I already linked to this story from Reason magazine last week, but it’s worth an encore, and if you didn’t see it then, take a look at it now.

https://reason.com/2019/09/04/betos-impossible-gun-ban-dreams/

It examines the history of laws that attempted to confiscate or “buy back” – or even register – certain types of guns and their paltry compliance rates.  If 95% of New Yorkers and even half of Canadians refused to go along with “Beto’s” fantasy, I can only imagine what the compliance rate would be in, say, Texas or Montana.  While you’re at it, why not ask those folks to help reduce CO2 emissions by happily turning over their pickup trucks to the government?

I know that the Democratic Presidential candidates want to fight “climate change” by doing away with cows, cheeseburgers and factory farms.  But if they have their way, what will we eat?  A Swedish scientist has a suggestion that might be even harder to swallow than the idea of any of these people being President.

I wonder which Democrat will be the first to propose making “Soylent Green” a real product?  They’ll have to think hard about it.  On the one hand, it has “green” in its name, and it’s made from people – “People!” – so it will fight climate change, according to this guy.  On the other hand, the movie “Soylent Green” starred Charlton Heston, who was the head of the NRA. He died 11 years ago, but no violation of current PC standards is forgivable, no matter how long ago it was.  So tough call. 

Still, if any Democratic candidate is actually going to endorse cannibalism, my money is on “Beto.”  He's been known to eat some pretty weird things.

    As a Lifetime NRA Member, and unfortunately resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, I am appalled by the decision by the SF BOS to label NRA Members as "Domestic Terrorists", it has added one more reason that I will no longer visit the Toilet Bowl of the Bay Area. It is so sad that the residents are so blinded or poisoned by something there, that they can't see how the liberals are destroying what was once the gem of the West Coast.

    It's sad enough that they have almost destroyed San Francisco and los Angeles, but after Brown and Newsom California is in the Fastrack to destruction. When the revolution starts it will more than likely begin in California!

    Now I hear Our great President Trump wants to help with the homeless in California. I have a great solution. All those Military Bases that Clinton Closed down many still stand fr empty. He should require California to help refurbish using the homeless as a training program to get those facilities back up as transitional facilities to include housing, mess halls, medical care, rehabilitation and retraining.

    These bases many have been turned over to the state or cities who have just sat on them for years.

    On climate change. I agree that we have contributed by all of the vehicles on the road and in the air, but, God is in control and He is trying to wake people up to look to Him for deliverance. He made the world and destroyed it by the flood because the people became so wicked. His Word tells of the disasters that will occur if we do not obey Him.

    Orville Rogers’ name may be familiar. He’s been featured on ESPN and Sports Illustrated. He also co-authored the book “The Running Man: Flying High for the Glory of God.” The 102-year-old former pilot and World -War II veteran started his running career at age 50 after reading Kenneth Cooper’s book “Aerobics.” Since then, he’s set numerous records, including 18 world records.

    Gov. please try to talk to the President to stop his twitter to the likes of Legend and his wife. Not what he needs to do anymore not as President. Stop this . Needs to do positive not negative against these liberal idiots. Let us do this STOP. Now Bolton is gone probably should never have been there. He still needs a good military there to talk and advise and not impressed by a couple he has that are now gone . Not where he is that knowledgeable and needs the top who are very experienced and can guide on Iran, S. Korea, and really was Camp David the place to now meet these barbarians the Taliban in our country? Turned out to not be popular with most so why did he do this. These people are not the type to honestly want to do anything and that this attack happened in Afgan before they had no control? Not sad to see Bolton go but the President needs to back off and stop being so sensitive per the people who get the podium like Legend who is very political and his wife is not that smart but she has a nasty big mouth. If he had to go after every one of the Hollyweird who could not do his job. He is being attacked for Bahamas and not caring for people there on The View. No one on there is now a Republican. Even Meghan said she would vote for Biden. Abby wants her job talk of not keeping her. So liberals including these two who are best pals now go with the other 3 libs. Daily he is doing good things and having people there talk of this and no more going after people tell him Sarah is gone.

    Just finished watching the movie 'Unplanned'. Everyone should be required to watch this and I recently heard, again,another woman proclaim to be a Christian but supports abortion. To these folks I highly recommend reading Matthew 7:21, "for many will say to me in that, but we have done all these things in your name. and I will say to them, away from me you evil doers, I NEVER knew you"!!

    I dunno Mike, I am about ready for the return of the Christ. I've had about all I can stand. If Barr and DT can put about 2/3 of libs in GITMO it might be tolerable. Massive insanity in one party is so deep and pervasive I don't know if we can bear it.

    Well, our socialist friends have called Conservatives, Trump supporters, Trumps Family members disgusting names, all it has done is make them small, tiny, childlike, misfits. The adults really pay no attention to it we have better things to do than listen to the nonsense, the way I have it figured they look in the mirror and blurt out the the first thing that comes in the little space reserved for their brain and repeat what they see. To take the poor miserable people seriously is a mistake; to get them mental health assistance is what is needed. The most amazing statement ever recored Forgive them Father they don't know what they're doing!

    In 1775, 72 people were killed by refusing to give their guns to the British. That's how the war started....Today we see CCR 'Permits' and 'Registrations'; and neither were on the voting ballet. Therefor, they are not the WILL OF THE PEOPLE but 'the will of government.' They are against the 2nd Amendment..."The right to own and carry a gun, "Without Infringement". They are both 'infringements'.
    When 'freedom' is 'permitted' by the government... it is not 'freedom'.
