Quiz: CNN’s WH reporter 1 step closer to winning A) Pulitzer; or B) Dem 2020 nomination

Michelle Malkin - Thu, 08/03/2017 - 09:42

**Written by Doug Powers

There’s a reason CNN’s uber-objective WH reporter Jim Acosta hates the “no cameras” briefings, but lucky for him they were on yesterday, and it showed:

During the White House briefing on Wednesday afternoon, CNN’s Jim Acosta threw a fit in the briefing room and quoted the poem engraved at the base of the Statue of Liberty in New York.

“The statue of liberty says, give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, it doesn’t say anything about speaking English or being able to be a computer programmer,” Acosta said. “Aren’t you trying to change what it means to be an immigrant coming into this country if you’re telling them, you have to speak English, can’t people learn how to speak English when they get here?”

When Stephen Miller tried to explain that poems on statues do not constitute immigration policy, Acosta doubled down.

“You’re saying that does not represent what the country has always thought of as generations coming into this country?” Acosta shot back. “That sounds like some national park revisionism.”
[…]
Acosta then tried to argue that talks of a border wall decreased legal immigration.

Hey, if Acosta wants to get into what the Statue of Liberty doesn’t say, let’s have at it (I haven’t seen anything about “free” health care or abortion on demand but maybe CNN can do some research).

Does this guy not sound more like a political opponent advocating a position than a “reporter”?

Not all heroes wear capes:

Dem 2020 nomination, current odds:

Joe Biden: 25-1
Elizabeth Warren: 15-1
Kamala Harris: 5-1
Jim Acosta: 2-1

Al Gore must be trying to make his own ‘rain bombs’

Michelle Malkin - Wed, 08/02/2017 - 19:32

**Written by Doug Powers

Al Gore had a town hall on CNN and it was pretty much exactly what you’d expect. This was my personal favorite:

Al Gore: A disrupted water cycle can lead to "rain bombs" — big downpours https://t.co/UYpqI3w42L #algoretownhall https://t.co/IAYrlovOFc

— CNN (@CNN) August 2, 2017

They’re called “microbursts” and have been around much longer than even Willard Scott’s oldest pair of underwear, but Gore must find it more frightening to call ’em “rain bombs.” If that doesn’t sufficiently scare enough people Gore still has “downpour nukes” warming up in the bullpen.

I wonder how many “rain bombs” Gore had helped drop because of his lifestyle:

In just this past year, Gore burned through enough energy to power the typical American household for more than 21 years, according to a new report by the National Center for Public Policy Research. The former vice president consumed 230,889 kilowatt hours (kWh) at his Nashville residence, which includes his home, pool and driveway entry gate electricity meters. A typical family uses an average of 10,812 kWh of electricity per year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

It gets worse.

Last September alone, Gore devoured 30,993 kWh of electricity. That’s enough to power 34 average American homes for a month. Over the last 12 months, Gore used more electricity just heating his outdoor swimming pool than six typical homes use in a year.

I’d be happy to talk more about “rain bombs” but we’re going to suffer the equivalent of nuclear winter if any more “hypocrite bombs” go off around Al and his buddies.

Procter & Gamble’s identity-politics pandering

P&G now stands for Protest and Grumble

Procter & Gamble’s identity-politics pandering
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2017

Once upon a time, brothers-in-law William Procter and James Gamble sold candles and soap. Their 19th-century family business grew into the largest consumer goods conglomerate in the world — launching the most recognizable brands on our grocery shelves, including Tide, Pampers, Crest, Nyquil and Old Spice.

Now, Procter & Gamble want to conquer a new market: identity-politics pandering.

Industry marketers aren’t satisfied with selling useful products people want and need. They’re hell-bent on transforming successful businesses into social justice busybodies.

P&G’s “My Black is Beautiful” campaign released a new video last week called, “The Talk.”

It “depicts the inevitable conversations many Black parents have with their children about racial bias to prepare, protect and encourage them” across the decades. The ad plays as a kinder, gentler version of Black Lives Matter propaganda, but the underlying themes are the same:

–Little progress has been made since the days of Jim Crow.

–Racial discrimination against black Americans is inevitable.

–Police officers are the enemy.

One especially offensive scene depicts a suburban black mom preparing her bubbly teenage daughter, a new driver, for “when you get pulled over.” Not “if,” you see, but “when.”

As the daughter laughs her off, the mom gravely warns: “This is not about you getting a ticket. This is about you not coming home.”

Because racist predator cops lurk on every corner, plotting to kidnap and kill black girls just trying to get to Forever 21? Really, Procter & Gamble?

Way to alienate the millions of law enforcement families — of all colors — who purchase your goods.

Naturally, media virtue signalers lavished praise on the corporate virtue signalers. It’s a veritable virtue signaling bacchanalia.

Adweek raved that the video was “powerful.” The Dallas Morning News cooed:

“The ad is a bold move, and the fact that a Fortune 100 company includes this cultural experience in an ad campaign not only acknowledges that the experience is real, but that it’s important to a mass audience.”

Yes, racial discrimination still exists. Yes, parents of all races and ethnicities must expose their children to hard truths about people who will judge them by their skin color, eye shape, socioeconomic status, physical stature and IQ instead of by their character.

But if inclusion, diversity and candid talk are such cherished values at P&G, when will they be airing bold videos about the brutal treatment Asian-American high school students have suffered at the hands of bigoted black students in Philadelphia over the past decade?

Or about the targeting of young female Asian Americans and elderly Asian-American crime victims by black gang members in New York and San Francisco?

Or on the long-simmering tensions between blacks and Latinos and blacks and Koreans in Los Angeles?

Or how about decrying the prejudice against multiracial children who are mocked for looking “too white”? Talk to black basketball star, Mike Conley, who was forced to fend off haters this week who attacked his white wife and their biracial 1-year-old baby.

Or how about monstrous, race-based hate crimes such as the kidnapping and assault of a mentally disabled white teenage boy by black thugs in Chicago who tortured him and forced him to declare on video “I love black people” and “F— white people”?

Or how about the increasingly vile campaigns on college campuses celebrating a “Day Without White People,” stereotyping diverse individuals under the dread banner of “white privilege,” condemning those who believe in color-blindness as “unethical,” and separating minorities into racially segregated dorms, classes and graduation ceremonies in the name of social justice?

P&G should stand for quality consumer goods, not empty Protest & Grumble that divides more than it unites.

If P&G isn’t willing to tackle the full complexity of race relations in 21st-century America, perhaps the company should stick to selling diapers instead of filling them.

Paul Krugman serves up more proof Nobel Prize needs ‘comedy’ category

Michelle Malkin - Tue, 08/01/2017 - 19:40

**Written by Doug Powers

The Nobel Prize committee really should add a “comedy” category just for this kind of laughable claim, but they’re probably too busy nodding their heads in agreement with the following statement about the man they gave a Peace Prize to (which was also evidence they need a “comedy” category”):

Economist Paul Krugman referred to Senate Republicans as “zombies” and asked who had eaten the “Republicans’ brains” in a New York Times op-ed Monday.
[…]
He argued that while the left’s “intellectual and moral collapse” might waiver from true north now and again, the right’s is regularly pointed far from truth. In an effort to make this point, Krugman discussed how former President Barack Obama approached health care.

“[The] Obama administration was, when all is said and done, remarkably clear headed and honest about its policies,” Krugman wrote. “In particular, it was always clear what the ACA was supposed to do and how it was supposed to do it—and it has, for the most part, worked as advertised.”

“If you like your plan you can keep your plan,” “the average family will save $2,500 a year” and a dozen other doozies unavailable for comment.

Sanctuary city reality check of the week

Michelle Malkin - Tue, 08/01/2017 - 09:43

**Written by Doug Powers

California Sen. Kamala Harris is rumored to be in the mix of Democrats who might vie for the nomination in 2020, and she’s already trying to shore up the sanctuary city vote (while still fighting to keep the federal funds flowing to city leaders who break federal laws):

Meanwhile, in a sanctuary city:

If Harris wants to run nationally by defending the inevitable effect of sanctuary city policies which serve as criminal magnets, good luck. Harris should ask Hillary “What Happened” Clinton how all that worked out for her.

Bernie explains how single-payer gets cheaper the more expensive it gets, or something

Michelle Malkin - Mon, 07/31/2017 - 15:04

**Written by Doug Powers

Bernie Sanders addressed skepticism of single-payer health care system yesterday by explaining that, sure, it’s far too expensive for any one state, but would become totally affordable if rolled out on a broader scale. Why? Because he said so — plus Canada, or something:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) on Sunday was pressed to explain why a single-payer health care system was rejected in Vermont and California, two staunchly Democratic states.

CNN host Jake Tapper said that California and Vermont are “cobalt blue states” and asked how single-payer could be affordable at the national level if they rejected the system at the state level because of the expense.

Sanders pushed back against Tapper, citing “studies that [he] has seen,” and said that single-payer would save the average family “significant sums of money.”

Sanders’ explanation reminds me of a local car dealer’s claim in a commercial years ago: “We take a little loss on each sale but make a big profit on volume.” Also, we were told Obamacare would save the average family “significant sums of money” but — not so much.

Actually Chuck Schumer recently unwittingly made a good point about all this:

You’re right Chuck, politicians shouldn’t be involved in health insurance or health care. Well put.

DUH: Dem worried Armed Forces Commander in Chief’s ‘militarizing’ WH (Open thread)

Michelle Malkin - Sun, 07/30/2017 - 11:54

**Written by Doug Powers

Over 80 degrees and nothing but sun today, so I’m going to a baseball game as mandated by July. Here are a few starters for the weekly Sunday free-for-all…

Some liberals, including the Democrat member of Congress below, are concerned President Trump is “militarizing” the White House with his choice of new chief of staff:

A Democratic Congresswoman has blasted General John Kelly’s appointment as the new White House chief of staff by describing him as “an extremist.”

Representative Barbara Lee of California tweeted on Friday, “By putting Gen John Kelly in charge, Pres Trump is militarizing the White House & putting our executive branch in the hands of an extremist.”

Militarizing the White House? OMG! Actually the Founders did that when they made the US president the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces. But don’t tell Rep. Lee that or she might really lose it.

Also, for bonus points, Lee referred to a Gold Star Father and decorated U.S. Marine as an “extremist.” But coming from a congresswoman who thinks progressive mayors who violate federal law and run sanctuary cities are heroes maybe that’s a compliment. Lefties like Lee only seem satisfied when there are Marxists advising the president.

It might just be another silly movie to some of us, but others smell opportunity!

“We need to stop global warming,” he urged. “The planet needs help.”

One expert agreed it’s a whale of a problem — that could increase the chances of end-of-days-style hurricanes.

“It’s a scientific fact that we are living in a warmer world. And it will continue to increase and accelerate as more carbon enters the atmosphere,” said Bill Patzert, a climatologist at the California Institute of Technology.

“As the world’s oceans warm, some speculate hurricanes will be become more intense — larger and stronger — which would give them more lift for a Sharknado-type storm,” he explained.

He added: “It does feed into the [movie] script, even though the script is nonsense.”

That last sentence explains Gore/Nye-style global warming alarmism perfectly and is what happens when you take the Gore Kool Aid intravenously.

By the way, at the movie theater the other day I saw the trailer for Al Gore’s new fictional thriller — I think it’s called “Inconvenient Truth II: You Didn’t Give Me All Your Money So You’re Nearly F***ing Dead Now!” It’s nothing short of another “Day After Tomorrow” ripoff combined with an anti-Trump ad:

*****

Read Andrew McCarthy at National Review about Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Pakinstani IT scammers. “There’s more than bank fraud going on here.” Yep.

When the story started heating up a couple of months ago, Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t (and still won’t) get within a mile of it:

*****

Imagine thinking this way about everything:

Must be a blast at parties.

Have a good Sunday all!

Michael Moore tells fractured nation to choose between him, or Trump

Michelle Malkin - Sat, 07/29/2017 - 16:57

**Written by Doug Powers

With the Russia collusion case falling apart before it could even be constructed, the Democrats continue to look for anything they can find to add to the articles of impeachment against Donald Trump. For now they’re down to “We have to or Michael Moore will leave the country.”

Far-left political activist and film-maker Michael Moore is about to debut on Broadway, in a show called “The Terms of My Surrender.”

On Wednesday night, Moore discussed the show with Stephen Colbert, who asked him – “What are the terms of Michael Moore’s surrender?”

“You have to come see the show,” Moore said. “I will tell you this. I will say this. I will say this. I refuse to live in a country where Donald Trump is president, and I’m not leaving. So something’s got to change.”

Schumer, Pelosi praise GOP trio for helping put Dems back in the majority

Michelle Malkin - Fri, 07/28/2017 - 17:02

**Written by Doug Powers

Well, the Democrats got more of the one-way “bipartisanship” they love from Republicans. Nancy Pelosi thanked three GOP senators in particular:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) thanked the three GOP senators who broke with their party to kill the Senate’s bill to repeal ObamaCare during a vote early Friday morning.

In a press conference Friday, Pelosi thanked Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) for breaking with their party and standing up to the Trump administration.

“I want to thank Senator McCain for establishing a higher level of participation as to how we should proceed,” Pelosi said Friday, referencing McCain’s return from Arizona, where he was diagnosed with brain cancer last week, to vote against the bill.

“To Senators Murkowski, Collins and McCain, thank you for hearing the voices of the families,” Pelosi added.

Chuck Schumer was effusive in his praise for McCain, as well as Murkowski and Collins. Schumer compared the Arizona senator to Ted Kennedy and said that by helping the Dems keep Obama’s signature law McCain entered the pantheon of great legislators:

“And the credit goes to a lot of people, but at the top of the list are the three who showed amazing courage to resist the pressure and do what’s good for the country. John McCain at the top of the list,” Schumer, who hugged McCain after the vote, said. “He and I have been friends for a very long time, ever since the Gang of Eight which we put together. And I have not seen a senator who speaks truth to power as strongly, as well and as frequently as John McCain. The very same courage he showed as a naval aviator in Vietnam, he showed last night and has shown time and time again. He’s just a wonderful man. I treasure his friendship and just the fact of knowing him.”

“I’ve known a few great men in the Senate. I’d put Ted Kennedy in that category and Danny Inouye. And I’d put John McCain in that category too,” he added. “And certainly not to be forgotten, of equal praise are Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski. They were amazing. And women are in so many instances stronger than men. They brag less about it, but they are. And last night sort of proved that.”

Schumer loves any pol who speaks “truth to power,” as long as the “power” is not the Democrats.

One more thing…

John McCain last year:

John McCain early Friday morning:

So much for the effectiveness of the “stand by your ad” provision in McCain-Feingold.

Hillary’s upcoming book explains whole 2016 story on the cover

Michelle Malkin - Thu, 07/27/2017 - 09:55

**Written by Doug Powers

Like a boxer’s first words after regaining consciousness flat on the mat after the ten count, Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book speaks volumes:

There’s no reason to buy it because everything’s asked and answered right there on the cover, but the foreword by Loretta Lynch & Bill Clinton could be interesting.

Update: From the publisher’s summary, maybe the book should instead have been titled “How America Failed a Hero”:

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

Eco-alarmist scientists determined to make ‘climate’ kill everybody one way or another

Michelle Malkin - Wed, 07/26/2017 - 19:20

**Written by Doug Powers

This plan to combat “climate change” is approved by both Al Gore and Wile E. Coyote, so the science is settled:

Scientists are sucking carbon dioxide from the air with giant fans and preparing to release chemicals from a balloon to dim the sun’s rays as part of a climate engineering push to cool the planet.

Backers say the risky, often expensive projects are urgently needed to find ways of meeting the goals of the Paris climate deal to curb global warming that researchers blame for causing more heatwaves, downpours and rising sea levels.

The United Nations says the targets are way off track and will not be met simply by reducing emissions for example from factories or cars – particularly after U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the 2015 pact.

It’d go faster if they’d ask to borrow Dick Cheney’s weather-controlling machine.

Blocking out the sun and sucking up all the CO2 — what could go wrong? It’s a little like draining the Loch Ness to make sure the monster can no longer hide from everybody — it’s the only way to be sure. But even if the sun blockers & CO2 terminators end up destroying life as we know it, in the process they’ll score a point with fellow eco travelers about how Trump pulling the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement is a grave threat to life as we know it.

Who owns border death truck tragedy? MEXICO!

Who owns border death truck tragedy? MEXICO!
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2017

Florida truck driver James Matthew Bradley isn’t the mastermind of the human smuggling ring that led to the grisly deaths of 10 illegal immigrants in his rig, which authorities found at a San Antonio Walmart over the weekend.

He’s just a cog in the machine.

Bradley may now face the death penalty for transporting up to 100 people crammed in the trailer of his 18-wheeler. But what about the open-borders overlords making a real killing off this insatiable racket?

I’m looking at you, America-bashing corruptocrats in Mexico.

For years, our nation has been subjected to endless complaints, race-baiting insults and vicious attacks by politicians south of the border.

Former Mexican President Felipe Calderon trashed our immigration laws on U.S. soil before the California state legislature.

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox dropped F-bombs at President Trump and millions of law-abiding Americans who support construction of an effective border wall.

Current Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto took to CNN’s airwaves to bash U.S. citizens who support strong borders as “exclusionary and discriminatory.” Last year, Nieto defiantly proclaimed at the United Nations that “there are no barriers that can stop either the movement of people or the fusion of cultures.”

Meddling Mexican consular officials in the U.S. have lobbied aggressively from New York to Texas to California for mass amnesty, driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants, discounted tuition for illegal immigrant students, and systematic sabotage of interior enforcement and deportation policies.

Armed incursions by the Mexican military have targeted our immigration enforcement agents for years. After vehemently denying a Mexican government helicopter fired on Border Patrol personnel in 2014, our “friends” were forced to admit the incident happened when Judicial Watch obtained homeland security documents detailing the attack near Sells, Arizona, on the Tohono O’Odham Indian Reservation. In fact, DHS records have tracked at least “300 documented incursions by Mexican military and law enforcement authorities onto U.S. soil since 2004” — with few consequences for the foreign invaders.

When they’re not busy trash-talking our laws, shooting at our first-line protectors or actively undermining our sovereignty, Mexican government bureaucrats are up to their eyeballs in narco-state corruption.

Please note that the federal criminal complaint in the San Antonio border death truck tragedy included the statement of one Mexican trafficking victim from Aguascalientes who told authorities he met a “smuggler linked to the Zetas” cartel at the Rio Grande, where they charged “11,000 Mexican pesos for protection and 1,500 Mexican pesos to cross by raft” before loading into Bradley’s big rig of death. At the Walmart parking lot, a phalanx of six SUVs operated by the reputed Zetas-associated smugglers whisked away several groups of human chattel, who were marked with color-coded tape.

Yes, that would be the same Zetas cartel that has bought and paid for top Mexican politicians for years. Last summer, a former top financial operative for the gang testified at the federal trial of Marciano Millan Vasquez that “Millan and other Zetas leaders were able to smuggle drugs, kill with impunity and launder money through real estate and government contracts because they had bribed the personal aide of former Coahuila governor Humberto Moreira,” according to the San Antonio Express-News.

Human rights watchdogs and border reporters left, right, and center — from the Huffington Post to Breitbart Texas — have exposed callous Mexican government officials selling out their own people while turning a blind eye to massacres, kidnappings, extortion and racketeering across the Mexican border states.

These usually mouthy Mexican leaders are now quiet as church mice about the latest casualties of open borders. Why? Because illegal immigration is the country’s budgetary bonanza.

This spring, cash transfers to Mexico spiked 15 percent in March compared with the same period last year. Remittances, the majority of which are sent by immigrants working illegally in the U.S. to their Mexican relatives, topped $2.5 billion. That’s the “third largest in U.S.-Mexico remittance history, after October 2008 ($2.6 billion) and May 2006 ($2.5 billion),” according to The Hill.

It’s not just what’s illicit, but what’s licit, that explains Mexico’s countenance of the mass abuse and enslavement of its own people. “No borders, no walls” means a Mexico that will never work hard enough to improve itself so that desperate people would rather pursue their dreams at home instead of stuffing themselves into sweltering death ovens on wheels.

And yet we’re the ones accused of human rights violations and lack of compassion.

How do you say “chutzpah” in Spanish?

Will arrested Wasserman Schultz IT aide seek ‘A Better Deal’ with prosecutors?

Michelle Malkin - Wed, 07/26/2017 - 09:23

**Written by Doug Powers

All we’ve been hearing from the mainstream media are speculations about members of the Trump administration possibly having legal troubles, but so far the only people in DC getting busted seem to be Democrats. Go figure:

A House IT staffer at the center of a congressional computer equipment scandal has been arrested by federal officials and charged with bank fraud, Fox News has learned.

Fox News is told officers and agents from the U.S. Capitol Police, the FBI and Customs and Border Protection were involved in the arrest of Imran Awan at Dulles International Airport.

Awan, 37, of Virginia, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to one count of bank fraud during his arraignment in federal court in Washington, D.C. He was released but will have to wear a GPS monitor and abide by a curfew.

The Feds had previously seized smashed hard drives from Awan (where would he possibly get that inspiration?).

Awan’s wife made it out of the country with a suitcase full of cash:

Awan transferred $283,000 to two individuals in Pakistan from the Longworth House Office Building. His wife had already fled to Pakistan, but while police did not prevent her from boarding her plane, she reportedly had $12,000 in cash.

Schultz was clearly not disturbed by any number of red flags over the years:

Soon after Imran began working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005, four of his relatives appeared on the payroll of other Democrats at inflated salaries, but Democratic staffers said they were rarely seen at work. They collected $4 million in taxpayer salaries since 2009.

House authorities told members in February that Imran and his relatives were suspects in a criminal investigation into theft and IT abuses, and they were banned from the Capitol network.

Wasserman Schultz has refused to fire Imran, despite being a known criminal suspect in a cybersecurity probe for months, and has blocked Capitol Police from searching a laptop they confiscated because it was tied to him.

During a budget meeting a couple of months ago, DWS demonstrated to the Capitol Police chief just how eager she was to allow authorities to examine potential pieces of evidence that had been seized (with bonus threat right at the end of the video):

Yep, she told the police “there will be consequences” for their actions. Now one of DWS’s ex staffers (and maybe select others later on) will probably take inspiration from the Dems’ new slogan and attempt to negotiate “A Better Deal” with prosecutors.

Of course: Princeton seeks ‘manager’ for on-campus masculinity

Michelle Malkin - Tue, 07/25/2017 - 19:54

**Written by Doug Powers

Headline of the day, via The College Fix:

I’m pretty sure the person hired won’t be a man, because “men” who “manage” might be considered a hyper-masculine trigger which would make the whole problem self-perpetuating:

The men’s manager will also launch initiatives to challenge “gender stereotypes,” and expand the school’s Men’s Allied Voices for a Respectful and Inclusive Community, a self-described “violence prevention program” at Princeton that often bemoans “toxic masculinity” on its Facebook page.

According to the job description, the men’s manager will develop educational programs targeting the apparent “high-risk campus-based populations for primary prevention of interpersonal violence, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking.”

The job posting implicitly refers to men as perpetrators and women as victims.

Ok, I’ll bite: Why do Princeton administrators allow “high risk” students to wander the campus? Maybe the first thing the “men’s engagement manager” should do is try and fire the people who hired *her. (*Note to self: Go back and substitute as generic as possible a gender pronoun here).

Job perks include exclusive use of faculty safe space and gold membership to the Epicene Gym.

Dems launch ‘Better Deal’ at definition of insanity

Michelle Malkin - Tue, 07/25/2017 - 13:46

**Written by Doug Powers

When a restaurant sends out a reminder that the same dish that made you barf last year is being re-introduced under a different name, you get something like this:

Six months after Republicans gained control of the White House and both houses of Congress, Democrats have outlined a plan to improve their chances of methodically taking it all back.

They are leaning heavily on a re-branding of their greatest hits — more and better-paying jobs, lowering health care costs and cracking down on the what are seen as the abuses of big business.

As an agenda and a slogan, “A Better Deal,” hearkens back to the days of President Franklin Roosevelt. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer went 50 miles outside the Beltway, to Berryville, Va., to unveil it, hoping the ideas will resonate with suburban voters, many of whom were energized by Trump’s campaign-trail populism.

Fifty whole miles outside the Beltway? They wouldn’t risk going out any farther without a flyover country Sherpa.

And the good news for Republicans is they still don’t get it:

During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Schumer discussed the Democrats’ new economic agenda, which he said they will unveil on Monday.

“The number one thing that we did wrong is we didn’t tell people what we stood for,” Schumer said during the interview.

The Dems’ problem was precisely the opposite. “We’re gonna put a lot of coal miners out of work” and “basket of deplorables” weren’t exactly vague statements, Chuckie.

“Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL NO!”

Hammer time! FBI seizes smashed hard drives from Wasserman Schultz aide

Michelle Malkin - Mon, 07/24/2017 - 19:54

**Written by Doug Powers

Just in case, better cue Drebin:

Something about this whole reported scenario sounds awfully familiar:

FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to two sources with knowledge of the investigation.

Pakistani-born Imran Awan, long-time right-hand IT aide to the former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman, has since desperately tried to get the hard drives back, an individual whom FBI investigators interviewed in the case told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

An additional source in Congress with direct knowledge of the case, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.

Capitol Police have also seized computer equipment tied to the Florida lawmaker.

The FBI didn’t happen to find any info about BleachBit anywhere, did they? Also, DWS, please tell your aide that Hillary’s people would like the hammer returned asap.

New Dem slogan a BIG hit with people who make money testing slogans (open thread)

Michelle Malkin - Sun, 07/23/2017 - 10:21

**Written by Doug Powers

The fuse on another Sunday open thread is lit, and here are just a couple things to kick off the festivities…

The DNC’s road to recovery (hey, eight years of Obama was tough on everybody) begins with a new slogan:

Completely sapped of power in Washington, top leaders of the Democratic Party now believe that the best way to fight a president who penned “The Art of the Deal” is with an economic agenda that they plan to call “A Better Deal.”

The campaign-style motto, panned by some liberal activists as details began to trickle out ahead of the Monday rollout, is designed to revive a party desperate to win back at least some control next year. The push comes months earlier than most campaign-year sales pitches begin — an acknowledgment of the need to shore up public opinion of the Democratic Party in the faster pace of modern politics.
[…]
“A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future” is the new slogan hatched after months of strategy sessions on Capitol Hill and late-night dinners at Washington restaurants hosted by Schumer, Pelosi, Jeffries and other rank-and-file House and Senate lawmakers.

When you feed your focus group nothing but Papa John’s, something like that is bound to happen.

The full slogan is “Better jobs, better wages, better future, better get a bucket I’m gonna throw up.”

After that fails to win back the House, Senate and WH the slogan will be upgraded to “Better Better, for the Better.”

*****

California politicians gathered Friday to herald the symbolic start of construction on the “bullet toilet” which will flush taxpayer dollars down the drain electrically and at record speeds:

A parade of politicians attended a groundbreaking ceremony for Caltrain’s electrification project on Friday, heralding the start of what they called the most important upgrade in the rail line’s 153-year-history.

The $2 billion project — delayed after the Trump administration held up a key federal grant before putting it back on track in May — will mean faster, greener and more reliable service, replacing the current diesel trains that go back and forth between San Francisco and San Jose’s Tamien station with a new fleet of electric train cars.

Elected officials on the Millbrae station’s southbound platform turned over some dirt with gold-painted shovels Friday morning to cheers and applause, but work on the project actually began behind the scenes in June.

Democrats applauded themselves for thinking up a train system that doesn’t run on fossil fuel and instead is powered by electricity, which just appears magically with no generation required, or something.

Based on the sheer amount of overstatement vs. delivery below, I suspect the overall project will follow suit:

The pure power of this shot almost melted our phone.

Kamala Harris getting an early start on losing the 2020 election?

Michelle Malkin - Sat, 07/22/2017 - 17:16

**Written by Doug Powers

Fast forward to a hypothetical 2020 where California Sen. Kamala Harris is the Democrat nominee. Historians might later trace her election loss back to this point in time:

Yes, by all means, give Team Hillary veterans a very large role in the process:

California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris has brought a number of former Hillary Clinton campaign veterans on board to work in her Washington, D.C., congressional office, according to its roster.

Harris has garnered media attention in recent weeks fueling speculation that she could be positioning herself to run in the Democratic primary during the 2020 presidential race.

Harris reportedly mingled with former top donors to Hillary Clinton in the Hamptons this past weekend and will head back this upcoming weekend for a private meeting with Harvey Weinstein, a Hollywood liberal and longtime donor to Clinton, and his wife Georgina Chapman.

It’s always a good idea to design your fledgling presidential campaign with the same template used by the candidate who lost the race for the WH — twice.
