The GOP tax bill passing the Senate has turned a certain spend-happy socialist into a deficit hawk:

Historians will look back on Dec. 1, 2017 and conclude this was one of the great robberies in US history because Republicans are looting the Treasury.

— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) December 2, 2017

Last night, trillions of dollars were stolen from the American people. Well, I have news for @SenateMajLdr and @SpeakerRyan: You are not going to get away with it. #TaxScamBill

— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) December 2, 2017

That’s hilarious, Bernie! And here’s a translation: By “looting the treasury” Sanders means “letting you keep more of your paycheck.”

Oh, and just last year, NPR published this story about the candidacy of the man who’s now warning everybody about deficits and debt:

Sanders never met a private sector dollar that shouldn’t be confiscated by the government for the “common good,” and now he’s trying to paint Republicans as the greedy ones. That’s enough irony to fill up all three homes owned by this particular anti-capitalist.

ABC News colludes with Hillary’s pet narrative, embarrassment ensues

Michelle Malkin - Fri, 12/01/2017 - 21:08

**Written by Doug Powers

When I saw an ABC News report early Friday about “candidate” Trump supposedly ordering Michael Flynn to contact Russia before the election, I said to myself “it’s Brian Ross — wait for the real story to come out.” And sure enough:

ABC News issued a correction Friday on a report published earlier in the day that stated former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn was instructed by President Trump to contact Russians while Trump was still a candidate.

Instead, the “clarification” noted that Trump’s request came after the election – a significant detail as Trump would have been transitioning from campaign mode to preparing for the start of his administration.

“Significant detail” indeed. How’s this for a “clarification”?

Clarification: During a live Special Report, ABC News reported that a confidant of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said Flynn was prepared to testify that then-candidate Donald Trump instructed him to contact Russian officials during the campaign. That source later clarified that during the campaign, Trump assigned Flynn and a small circle of other senior advisers to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other hot spots. It was shortly after the election, that President-elect Trump directed Flynn to contact Russian officials on topics that included working jointly against ISIS.

The original Brian Ross report pushing the “collusion” angle really implodes when it’s discovered that if Trump had Flynn contact Russia, it was after the election. It’s kind of difficult to “collude” with Russia to win an election after the election has taken place, but this is ABC News we’re talking about, and they’ve got a narrative to push.

I’m still laughing at the “clarification” part. They spelled “retraction” wrong:

CLARIFICATION of ABC News Special Report: Flynn prepared to testify that President-elect Donald Trump directed him to make contact with the Russians *during the transition* — initially as a way to work together to fight ISIS in Syria, confidant now says. https://t.co/ewrkVZBTbc pic.twitter.com/GQAKwT1Eda

— ABC News (@ABC) December 2, 2017

Chicago Daily Tribune, 1948: “Clarification: Yesterday we reported ‘Dewey Defeats Truman.’ It was actually the other way around. We stand by the other details in our report.”

Trump really has driven the media into the toilet.

Also, sometimes “fake news” comes at a literal price for some:

The initial report caused the Dow to initially plunge by some 350 points.

Way to go, ABC News! Next they’ll probably feature the drop in a report about why Trump’s bad for the market.

Update:

On ABC’s “The View,” Joy Behar celebrated what we now know is pure BS. This is totally embarrassing:

Confirmed: Trump’s driven the media into the toilet

Michelle Malkin - Fri, 12/01/2017 - 16:49

**Written by Doug Powers

The list of impeachable offenses the media keeps digging up grows by the day:

NBC Washington got its hands on White House work orders, show a request to replace the toilet seat in the Oval Office in late January, and specifies the project be completed “after hours please.” https://t.co/FGo6KgAUAX

— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) December 1, 2017

BREAKING: The White House, not unlike everybody else’s house, needs things repaired and replaced once in a while:

White House officials submitted hundreds of requests in 2017 for repairs, equipment and pest control to building administrators with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), which helps manage maintenance needs in the West Wing and East Wing of the White House.

Maintenance workers were asked over the past two years to respond to reports of mice infiltrating the White House Navy mess food service area and the White House Situation Room. There were also at least four reported cockroach infestations on the grounds and a complaint of ants in the White House chief of staff’s office.

Some of the projects appear large in scope. Some appear quite small. The work orders show a request to replace the toilet seat in the Oval Office in late January, and specifies the project be completed “after hours please.”

And of course the conclusion from The Resistance is that a change in toilet seats in January of 2017 is the clearest evidence of racism in the White House.

NBC’s “scoop” requires a double flush.

Only punishment for illegal alien acquitted of Kate Steinle’s murder: Deportation for 6TH TIME

Michelle Malkin - Thu, 11/30/2017 - 23:02

**Written by Doug Powers

Ya gotta love those sanctuary cities and the politicians who back them:

A man accused of fatally shooting Kathryn Steinle in a case that President Trump frequently cited in the national debate over illegal immigration was found not guilty on all counts except felony possession of a weapon.

Jurors deliberated for several days before returning the surprise verdict involving Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a Mexican immigrant in the the country illegally who had been deported five times before the fatal shooting.

And even more maddening:

Under a sanctuary city law, the San Francisco sheriff’s department had released Garcia Zarate from jail despite a federal immigration request to detain him for deportation

As a result, here’s what’s going to happen Zarate… again:

So basically the punishment for entering the country illegally five times and killing a woman is to be dropped off across the border and challenged with finding a way back to San Francisco or some other progressive sanctuary city to maybe do the same thing all over again. Wow.

Congress & staffers must attend harassment seminars, no ifs ands or butts

Michelle Malkin - Thu, 11/30/2017 - 19:15

**Written by Doug Powers

Prediction: Things will go downhill fast after the seminar instructor begins by saying “Ok, everybody grab a seat!”

From The Hill:

The House on Wednesday voted to require annual sexual harassment awareness training for all members and staff amid a push to reform the culture on Capitol Hill.

A resolution authored by Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) passed easily by voice vote, though its passage will not be the hard part for lawmakers seeking to reform the policies to protect Capitol Hill employees from sexual harassment.

Comstock’s measure requires members and staff to undergo anti-harassment and anti-discrimination training during each session of Congress. Interns and fellows would also have to take the training.

Members and staff will have to complete the training no later than 180 days after the second session of the current Congress begins in January.

Will this be Conyers and Franken’s excuse for not resigning? “It’s not fair if we have to quit even before being formally told what we did isn’t allowed!”

The first seminar got underway today:

Somewhere in the halls of Congress, this conversation is taking place:

Congressman’s chief of staff: You have to attend harassment training tomorrow.

Congressman: Why? I’m already really good at it.

Nancy Pelosi: Sham “Shero”

Michelle Malkin - Wed, 11/29/2017 - 09:50

Nancy Pelosi: Sham “Shero”
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2017

Finally, Nancy Pelosi’s faux feminist veneer has fully cracked.

The Democratic “shero” is, and always has been, a sham. But after Pelosi’s incoherent babblefest on “Meet the Press” defending accused groper John Conyers and clown-cad Al Franken, the progressive left can no longer mask her partisan perv apologism.

Pelosi milked her XX chromosomes for all their electoral worth. Her official biography brags about her role as “the most powerful woman in American politics” and her induction into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. Over three decades on Capitol Hill, she has scooped up Ms. Magazine’s Woman of the Year award, Glamour Magazine’s Woman of the Year designation, Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger award (named after the abortion godmother and notorious eugenics champion), and the Alice Award (named after suffragette Alice Paul).

So, feminists were aghast when Pelosi hailed Conyers as an “icon” and downplayed news of his secret sexual harassment settlement with a former female staffer — one of three former employees alleging sexual abuse. Blasting D.C. double standards, Long Island Democratic Rep. Kathleen Rice fumed this week over Pelosi’s failure to call out Conyers and Franken.

But this is far from the first time see-no-evil Nancy has looked the other way at Democrat dirtbags. I’ve been reporting on her creep-enabling for years.

Let me cure the left-wing political and media establishment’s amnesia:

Former Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York. Lost in the aftermath of Weiner’s mucky-yucky nude selfie and sexting scandals is the fact that Pelosi refused to condemn him until his interactions with an underage girl in Delaware were exposed by conservative bloggers and confirmed by police. Only then did champion-of-women Pelosi rush from behind to lead the demands for Weiner’s resignation.

Former Democratic Rep. Eric Massa of New York. In 2010, the married Massa resigned amid a sordid sexual harassment scandal involving young, low-paid male staffers he allegedly lured to his Capitol Hill playhouse for “tickle fights.” Turned out that Pelosi’s office had been informed months before, by a staffer of former Democratic Rep. Barney Frank, of Massa’s predatory and harassing behavior with multiple congressional employees. Massa’s former deputy chief of staff and legislative director also contacted leading Democrats on the House Ethics Committee. Former House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer also knew of Massa’s misconduct. But Pelosi said and did nothing until allegations went public. A toothless House Ethics Committee investigation went nowhere.

“I have a job to do and not to be the receiver of rumors,” she deflected icily.

Former Democratic Re. David Wu of Oregon. The seven-term liberal congressman had a longstanding history of alcoholism and sexual skeeviness that broke into the public eye when his own staffers revolted against their drunk-texting, Tigger costume-wearing boss and pressured him to seek psychiatric help. House Democrat leaders, desperate to keep one of their own in office, ignored the pleas. Only after The Oregonian newspaper published allegations by a teenage girl who had complained for months to apathetic Capitol Hill offices of an “unwanted sexual encounter” with Wu did Pelosi make a show of calling for a House Ethics Committee investigation — which went, you guessed it, nowhere.

Former Democratic mayor Bob Filner of San Diego. Last month, Pelosi climbed aboard the #MeToo bandwagon in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal.

“Your courage is truly inspiring to us all,” she tweeted.

But when multiple women accused her old friend, former Democrat congressman and San Diego mayor Bob Filner, of harassment and assault, Pelosi indignantly refused to call on him to resign. One staffer claimed Filner had ordered her to “work without her panties on.” Others alleged he forcibly kissed them. Another said she had contacted Democratic higher-ups in California about a half-dozen women, but nobody did nuttin’.

“What goes on in San Diego is up to the people of San Diego. I’m not here to make any judgments,” Pelosi sniffed.

The late Democratic Sen. Teddy Kennedy. Of the licentious Democratic lion of the Senate whose public boorishness culminated in the infamous “Waitress Sandwich” with fellow Dem pig Sen. Chris Dodd, Pelosi effused:

“Rooted in his deep patriotism, his abiding faith and his deep concern for the least among us, no one has done more than Senator Kennedy to educate our children, care for our seniors and ensure equality for all Americans.”

The Democratic Bad Boys Club has had no better cheerleader than Pom-Pom Pelosi.

AWW: Trump ruined CNN’s holiday spirit

Michelle Malkin - Wed, 11/29/2017 - 07:35

**Written by Doug Powers

The liberal media remain incredibly traumatized by the reality of dealing with a president whose likeness they can’t put in makeshift mangers scenes in their respective newsrooms, and CNN’s post-Obama stress disorder has reached a breaking point this holiday season:

Adding fuel to its growing feud with President Donald Trump, CNN told POLITICO it will be boycotting the White House Christmas party for the media this year.

“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a CNN spokesperson said. “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.”

The annual event, scheduled for Friday at 2 p.m., is typically seen as a time when reporters and their bosses can mingle freely with administration members, but Trump’s posture toward the press has been uniquely aggressive.

Oh no! Without CNN at the event, how will the Republic survive not knowing how many more scoops of ice cream Trump had than everybody else?

Actual WaPo fact check: Pence jobs claim correct, so only 3 Pinocchios for him

Michelle Malkin - Tue, 11/28/2017 - 16:11

**Written by Doug Powers

There’s so much spin in this “fact check” it may well have been written in of a centrifuge, so it might be a good idea to mainline Dramamine before trying to get through it all without getting dizzy. Here’s the gist…

The claim:

“There are more Americans working today than ever before in American history.”
— Vice President Pence, remarks during a speech at the Tax Foundation, Nov. 16, 2017

The conclusion: True but false:

More meaningful measures of the overall health of the job market take population into consideration. And both the labor force participation rate and the employment-to-population rate show there is still room for improvement following the Great Recession. Those rates peaked in the late 1990s or early 2000s.

We were tempted to say that Pence earns Four Pinocchios, but the numbers are technically correct. Yet they are so devoid of meaning that Pence and the people who applauded his statement should be ashamed.

Three Pinocchios

The numbers aren’t “technically correct,” but rather just correct. “Technically” that WaPo fact check is a biased mess.

You’ve gotta love that approach though: “Pence said Americans use computers now more than ever, which is technically correct but only because the tech revolution made it possible and wouldn’t be true otherwise — three Pinocchios!

Shocker! The DC harassment swamp has Dem & media enablers

Michelle Malkin - Tue, 11/28/2017 - 11:40

**Written by Doug Powers

I’ll get to the media enablers in a second, but first here’s another example of how Nancy Pelosi turns on a hypocrisy dime faster than Al Franken can grab butts at a meet & greet.

The wind-up from 2014:

#YesAllWomen deserve to live free from threats of domestic violence & sexual assault. We must shine a bright light on such despicable crimes

— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) May 27, 2014

And the pitch this week:

Rep. Pelosi calls John Conyers an "icon" amid ethics probe pic.twitter.com/PnR4CcmtJq

— FOX & friends (@foxandfriends) November 27, 2017

Pelosi’s “bright light” seems to burn out when the accused are Democrats.

Pelosi knew about Conyers years ago and did nothing:

She said she contacted the Ethics Committee again in 2011 on a behalf of a colleague from Conyers’ office who told her about similar behavior. The Ethics Committee wouldn’t comment Monday on it.

“As you know, Conyers received nothing more than a ‘rap on his knuckles’ from Nancy Pelosi, then Speaker of the House, for not having ‘clarity’ in his instructions/order to staff to perform illegal/unethical duties,” Maher wrote to the Ethics Committee in a 2011 email — a copy of which she provided to The News.

“He was very clear always when giving orders: If you want your job, do as I say,” Maher wrote.

Democrats and their lectures about Republicans’ “war on women” and the like are possibly the most glaring examples of psychological projection this century. And the most maddening part of all: Taxpayers are on the hook when it comes to covering the tracks of these pervs.

Heck, the entire press corps knew about Conyers, according to Cokie Roberts:

Speaking on ABC’s “This Week,” Cokie Roberts made a startling admission: “every female in the press corps knew” to avoid being in an elevator with Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), and has apparently known about this “for years.” Conyers has been accused of multiple instances of sexual harassment and has stepped down from the House Judiciary Committee.

Gee, if only those members of the media who knew about Conyers worked in a career field where they had the ability to make such a story public! Oh, wait.

Who didn’t see all this coming from the Dems and a liberal press corps who lionized Ted Kennedy and made excuses for Bill Clinton? Anyone? … Anyone?

Pelosi: Don’t draw conclusions about Conyers until he’s done investigating himself

Michelle Malkin - Sun, 11/26/2017 - 12:40

**Written by Doug Powers

Remember when Democrats cheered when Hillary Clinton said during the campaign that women with accusations against men should be “heard and believed” while Bill coughed and slowly backed out of the room? You won’t be surprised to know those “rules” have changed now that more Dems have been accused. The office of Rep. John Conyers shelled out nearly $30,000 in taxpayer funds to settle a sexual harassment allegation in 2014 (taxpayers are so involuntarily generous that way) but this morning, Nancy Pelosi was in no rush to judgment:

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on Sunday urged “due process” before making conclusions about Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., following accusations of sexual harassment, saying the 27-term Congressman is “an icon” who has worked to protect women.

“We are strengthened by due process. Just because someone is accused – and was it one accusation? Is it two?” Pelosi said on “Meet The Press.”

The sudden concern for “due process” involving sexual harassment allegations is a fast 180-degree turn coming from the side that recently got the runs over Betsy DeVos rescinding the Obama admin’s Title IX guidance. And what’s Pelosi’s idea of “due process” in this case? She wants America to wait for John Conyers to review all the evidence against John Conyers before drawing any conclusions:

“John Conyers is an icon in our country. He has done a great deal to protect women – Violence Against Women Act, which the left – right-wing – is now quoting me as praising him for his work on that, and he did great work on that,” she added. “But the fact is, as John reviews his case, which he knows, which I don’t, I believe he will do the right thing.”

In other words, “If Conyers’ investigation of himself turns up any wrongdoing I’m sure he’ll step down.” I also really enjoy the “fellow traveler” clause in the rulebook of liberal leniency, where a serial bank robber would be excused from punishment provided he gave some of the money he stole to left-wing organizations.

And what Pelosi interview would be complete without a moon shot of feigned ignorance?

When asked specifically whether she believes the accusations against Conyers, Pelosi said, “I do not know who they are. Do you? They have not really come forward.”

See how the game works?

1) Set up system to secretly pay off accusers.
2) Make accusers sign non-disclosure agreements.
3) Pretend accusations aren’t credible because accusers didn’t come forward.

Pelosi likely knows all about the slush fund for congressional pervs and watching her play the Sgt. Schultz routine about it is more laughable than “we have to pass it to find out what’s in it”:

Pelosi spent years railing against the Right’s so-called “war on women” but when the s**t comes down real close to home she sounds like she’s auditioning to be Harvey Weinstein’s attorney.

As for Conyers, he’s hoping a symbolic and temporary gesture will make things go away:

Conyers: After careful consideration and In light of the attention drawn by recent allegations made against me, I have notified the Democratic Leader of my request to step aside as Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee during the investigation of these matters.

— Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) November 26, 2017

Pelosi will now say he’s held himself accountable and it’s time for everybody to move on.

Update:

Perhaps Team Pelosi sensed her Meet the Press interview was a train wreck, because they put out this cover afterward:

Zero tolerance means consequences. I have asked for an ethics investigation, and as that investigation continues, @RepJohnConyers has agreed to step aside as Ranking Member. No matter how great an individual’s legacy, it is not a license for harassment. pic.twitter.com/H5ikWy1iqT

— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) November 26, 2017

What a huge pile of CYA bullcrap. Do you know who should be under ethics investigation as enablers of that behavior? The entirety of congressional leadership — because there’s a system in place in Congress that allows for the use of taxpayer dollars to pay off and hush people with harassment complaints. The complicity undoubtedly runs deep, and watching Pelosi try to act shocked by it all is hilarious.

Journalism! Out: Russia hacked election — In: WH spox faked Thanksgiving pie

Michelle Malkin - Fri, 11/24/2017 - 21:53

**Written by Doug Powers

From the “It’s Come to This” file on this Thanksgiving weekend we find this pre-stuffed turkey of a “bombshell”:

CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan suggested, without any evidence, Friday that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders actually didn’t actually cook the pecan pie Sanders said she did.

Ryan is frequently praised by liberals for being a nuisance in the White House press briefing room, but she failed to present any evidence Friday, except for the claims of random Twitter users, that Sanders faked the pie. Ryan did not respond to this reporter when asked for proof.

Maybe somebody with CNN is better qualified than most when it comes to spotting a fake pie since they’re already quite experienced in fake journalism.

Here’s the Sarah Huckabee Sanders pie tweet in question followed by April Ryan swinging for the Pulitzer fences:

Hey Dems, Hillary’s waiting for you to ask her advice about 2020

Michelle Malkin - Fri, 11/24/2017 - 16:26

**Written by Doug Powers

In an interview this week, Hillary Clinton made it clear that she’s available to offer advice to other Democrat 2020 hopefuls:

“Nobody’s actually been to see me,” the two-time failed presidential candidate said in a radio interview. “I see Democrats all the time, and nobody has said ‘Hey, I’m going to run,’ or ‘I’m thinking about running, give me advice now,’ because it is too soon.”

She added, “And there may be some private planning going on by some people. I wouldn’t know who. I wouldn’t hazard a guess. But in terms of actually seeking out advice, people have said, ‘hey, I want to come talk to you.’ But I haven’t had those conversations, in large measure, because I’ve said I’m going to focus next year on 2018, and then, you know, I’ll be happy to talk.”

Maybe Dems aren’t asking Hillary’s advice because they know “watch what I did and don’t do that” won’t be her advice. We already know that “When in doubt, blame Russia” remains a surefire loser.

Dumb sensors, deadly consequences

Michelle Malkin - Wed, 11/22/2017 - 06:40

Dumb sensors, deadly consequences
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2017

The circumstances of U.S. Border Patrol agent Rogelio Martinez’s death this week remain murkier than the Rio Grande River.

Agent Martinez succumbed to critical head injuries early Sunday morning. An unnamed partner, who came to Martinez’s aid after he radioed for help from a remote area of the Big Bend sector in Texas, also suffered serious wounds. Whether by deliberate ambush or accident, one of our border enforcers is dead and the other hospitalized.

This much is clear: Dumb sensors + depleted forces = deadly border disorder.

Agent Martinez had ventured out alone to check on a ground sensor to determine who or what had set it off. He confirmed to his colleagues that human activity had activated the alarm before he died.

Here’s the scandal: Our federal government has been squandering billions of dollars on inferior border technology for years. It’s a monumental waste of taxpayer funds and a dangerous redistribution of wealth to crony contractors, whose ineffective pet projects are putting our men and women on the front lines at risk.

Nearly 14,000 ground sensors have been littered along the southern border over the past several decades — some dating back to the Vietnam War era. Untold numbers have simply been buried and lost by federal workers who failed to record where they put them. Twelve years ago, a Department of Homeland Security inspector general’s report found that agents couldn’t determine the cause of 62 percent of the sensor alerts because they were “unable to respond to the dispatch, or it took the agent too long to get to the sensor location.”

Compounding staff shortages are outdated sensors unable to distinguish between humans, vehicles and animals. They can’t tell cows from criminals or wild boars from dirty bombers. Thirty-four percent of alerts were confirmed false alarms in the 2005 review. Only 2 percent resulted in apprehensions of immigrants in this country illegally, the feds admitted.

The Arizona Republic reported that “a possible false alarm from a ground sensor, and faulty radio communications, may have contributed to the death of Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie in a friendly-fire incident” in 2012. “(A)gents didn’t detect anyone but each other when they arrived. Ivie, responding separately, apparently mistook the other agents for smugglers and opened fire. One of the agents shot and killed him.”

A $1 billion integrated fixed tower project, fronted by Boeing, was supposed to remedy the flaws of the ground sensor system. A surveillance program along the southwest border in Arizona, the IFT systems “are fixed surveillance assets that provide long-range persistent surveillance” using radars that send pictures back to a central hub to monitor illegal crossings and criminal activity.

But the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general reported this summer that the towers had never been properly tested for suitability and operational effectiveness. Its successors haven’t fared much better.

On a trip to the Sierra Vista, Arizona, region earlier this summer for my CRTV.com show, “Michelle Malkin Investigates,” I talked to ranchers who pointed out fancy new towers with fatal blind spots, out of reach of deep washes and heavy forests where illegal immigrants and drug smugglers travel.

“We have $50 million of infrastructure on this ranch now,” fourth-generation Arizona rancher John Ladd told me during a tour of his property, “and none of it has worked. Camera towers, radar, fence, roads, street lights.” All the technology in the world is useless, he has long pointed out to politicians and bureaucrats, without boots on the ground. And Border Patrol agents parked in air-conditioned cubicles hours from the border don’t count.

“You got 600 (agents) in Tucson” who “take 6 hours to get to the border. Move them down! You got Nogales … and Naco and Douglas that are within a mile of the border,” Ladd points out. “All the rest of them are more than 50 miles north. Why do we have that? What good is that?”

Longtime illegal immigration activist and systems engineer Glenn Spencer, who I first met in California in the 1990s, has lived and worked on the Arizona border for more than decade. He patented and tested a pilot system of seismic detection and ranging on 1.5 miles of his friend John Ladd’s property called Seidarm and paired it with a drone, dubbed Hermes, which automatically launches when border activity is detected within 500 feet of the smart sensors. It can be manufactured and built at a fraction of the cost of the big defense contractors’ systems. Unlike much of the government’s gold-plated technology, Ladd said: “It worked.”

“If they had SEIDARM/HERMES installed, they could have checked out the ground sensor without putting the agent in jeopardy,” Spencer told me after Agent Martinez’s death hit the news this week.

But politicians in both parties have spurned Ladd’s pleas and Spencer’s proposals. Special interests have raided public coffers to fund border security Kabuki theater and stave off meaningful assessments. Spencer doesn’t mince words:

“They don’t want to measure it; they don’t want to secure the border; they want to make it LOOK like they are.”

Beltway business as usual. Another agent’s life sacrificed. President Trump, the clock is ticking.

SNL alumni not offended by Franken vouch for beleaguered senator

Michelle Malkin - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 18:13

**Written by Doug Powers

This could be the funniest thing to come from SNL in years, and the tragedy is that it’ll never make the cut for a sketch on the show:

Three dozen women who worked with Sen. Al Franken during his tenure on “Saturday Night Live” came out in defense of the Minnesota Democrat facing allegations of sexual misconduct.

In the letter, the women slammed Franken’s behavior toward Leeann Tweeden — who accused the lawmaker of forcibly kissing and groping her more than a decade ago — as “stupid and foolish” but wrote that “not one of us ever experienced any inappropriate behavior” from the former SNL cast member.

“We feel compelled to stand up for Al Franken, whom we have all had the pleasure of working with over the years on Saturday Night Live (SNL). What Al did was stupid and foolish, and we think it was appropriate for him to apologize to Ms. Tweeden, and to the public,” the women wrote. “In our experience, we know Al as a devoted and dedicated family man, a wonderful comedic performer, and an honorable public servant.”

There’s enough material here out of which to make a great sketch on SNL, if only it weren’t about SNL.

Why some congressmen cling to the job for life, part VII: Taxpayer-funded harassment insurance

Michelle Malkin - Tue, 11/21/2017 - 11:36

**Written by Doug Powers

The latest member of Congress to be named in a harassment story is a Democrat who has been in the House since the continental ice sheet carved out the Great Lakes: Michigan Rep. John Conyers. Taxpayers, take note of the amount of money Conyers reportedly gave the woman to settle the complaint, because you paid for it:

The website BuzzFeed News reported on Monday that the office of Conyers, 88, paid the woman over $27,000 to settle the complaint under a confidentiality agreement.

BuzzFeed also published affidavits from former staff members who said they had witnessed Conyers touching female staffers inappropriately —rubbing their legs and backs — or requesting sexual favors. One former staffer said one of her duties was “to keep a list of women that I assumed he was having affairs with and call them at his request and, if necessary, have them flown in using Congressional resources.”
[…]
BuzzFeed said it received the documents from right-wing activist Mike Cernovich, but independently confirmed their authenticity. Cernovich said he gave the documents to BuzzFeed News because Democrats would “try to discredit the story by attacking the messenger” if he published them himself.

Conyers is the top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee and the longest-serving current member of the House, having arrived in 1965. Calls to Conyers and his office seeking comment were not immediately returned Monday night.

I’m waiting for Conyers’ excuse to be “hey, what else is a guy to do while his wife’s in the slammer?”

Here’s the most maddening part: It isn’t just Franken, Conyers, etc. Congress has an entire cash pot set aside to settle claims against representatives & senators.

The government has paid more than $17 million in taxpayer money over the last 20 years to resolve violations filed by employees of Congress. https://t.co/i1019Amxcv

— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) November 21, 2017

And by “the government” they mean “taxpayers.”

Conyers allegedly used taxpayer funds to bring women to him, and then again used taxpayer funds to settle complaints. One reason some politicians try to cling to the job for life is that you can’t get that sort of 3rd-party-funded sexual harassment insurance in the private sector.

According to Buzzfeed, the complaint against Conyers was settled in 2014, when Republican John Boehner was House Speaker and Nancy Pelosi the Dem Minority Leader. Both Boehner and Pelosi have gone full Sgt. Schultz and claimed they knew nothing of the settlement. If that’s true (big “IF”), where’s the oversight? For now, it sounds like the system was designed to be one giant plausible deniability machine. As if some politicians’ behavior towards others wasn’t bad enough, they also can’t stop groping taxpayers’ wallets.

The ‘I’ in ‘IRS’ now stands for ‘Irony’ (as inspired by Lois Lerner)

Michelle Malkin - Mon, 11/20/2017 - 07:07

**Written by Doug Powers

Last month, the Justice Department announced settlements had been reached with conservative groups the IRS admitted targeting for scrutiny during the totally scandal-free Obama administration. Last week, Lois Lerner and a person she worked with at the IRS at the time said they would fight unsealing of depositions for this reason:

Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate.

“Whenever Mss. Lerner and Paz have been in the media spotlight, they have faced death threats and harassment,” attorneys for the two women argued.

Ms. Lerner and Ms. Paz gave taped depositions in a class-action lawsuit brought by tea party groups demanding answers and compensation for having been subjected to illegal targeting for their political beliefs.

In other words, Lerner & Company fear further information about their targeting could make them targets for those they targeted? The “I” in “IRS” should now stand for “Irony.”

10 months after 8 years of Obama, Joe Biden says America in grave danger

Michelle Malkin - Sun, 11/19/2017 - 16:34

**Written by Doug Powers

Does Joe remember who was in charge for eight years up until January 20th? Maybe not:

Former Vice President Joe Biden lashed out at President Trump on Saturday for creating a “dangerous” climate in America.

Biden, while speaking about his upcoming book at the Miami Book Fair in Florida, paused to discuss the Trump administration. He accused the president of not caring about the working class voters that put him in the White House and said he and his advisors take advantage of “change and pain.”

“I think it’s one of the most dangerous times in modern history,” Biden said, according to the Miami Herald.
[…]
“Do you think [Trump] really cares about the kids I grew up with in Scranton, Pennsylvania, as far as their economic well being?” Biden said.

In 2012, Biden sounded the alarm that Mitt Romney was going to “put y’all back in chains,” but Joe obviously wanted to prove to the country that his demagoguery tank remains far from empty. The only way this would be “one of the most dangerous times in modern history” would be if all Americans collectively heeded Biden’s shotgun advice.

Besides, the last thing the world needs is another lecture about caring for the working class from a Dem who supported the 2016 candidate who pledged to put coal industry workers out of jobs.
