Debate 2:
The Party from Lovetron
Practices Interplanetary Funkmanship

Older folks remember Darryl Dawkins (aka Chocolate Thunder): a massive, free-spirited NBA megastar known for backboard-shattering dunks – and for claiming to be an alien from the planet Lovetron, where he practiced “Interplanetary Funkmanship.” No one quite knew what “Interplanetary Funkmanship” was. But it possibly related to stuffing candy bars on the bench, having little-to-no work ethic, and therefore taking large portions of games off in-between booming slams with nicknames such as “Yo Mama,” “In Your Face Disgrace,” and of course, “Sexophonic Turbo Delight.” In retrospect, the late Thunder would have made a perfect Democratic voter.

The Supreme Court’s 5-to-4 ruling on Department of Commerce v. New York is being characterized as nothing more serious than a temporary setback regarding President Trump’s wish to reinstate a citizenship question in the 2020 U.S. Census; the administration is expected to whip up a new rationale that the high court won’t consider “contrived” and get the question in. Unfortunately it is far worse than that, and Chief Justice John Roberts is giving further sign that he is yet another unpleasant surprise in GOP appointments to the highest level of the Judicial Branch, following in the footsteps of David Souter (Bush 41),
Democrats’ Cirque De Absurdite 3 replies

When it was time to call the candidates on stage for Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate, did one of the moderators yell “send in the clowns?” If not, someone should have. What a bunch of buffoons. We don’t use that word lightly. One definition of buffoon is “a person who amuses others by ridiculous behavior.” That’s a description that fits every candidate on the stage. Each was hilariously solicitous and comically transparent. Almost before the game show applause had settled, Beto O’Rourke launched into a juvenile Spanish-language hustle that left Sen. Cory Booker wide-eyed and most everyone else rolling their eyes.

Stipulated: It’s off-the-chart madness that a male won a women’s NCAA national championship in track. That another male is seeking to participate in female weight-lifting competitions. Especially that men get the opportunity to pummel women in mixed martial arts. And then there are the Connecticut girls, excluded from New England track regionals when boys took the top two spots, who have brought a complaint under Title IX, which mandates equal participation for women in educational programs. Said one girl, Selina Soule: “There have been countless other female athletes (affected) in the state of Connecticut, as well as my entire indoor track team.

Before California slips into the ocean after a massive earthquake, as some predicted decades ago that it would, it looks like it will first become America’s very own undeveloped nation. California has endured its share of Old Testament calamities in the modern world. Yet at times it seems that it will surely succumb to disasters created by its own hand. There are real monsters loose in the streets. Rats, “an army” of them “millions strong,” reports KOMO News, have “overthrown” Los Angeles. Not long ago, “officials briefly closed part of City Hall after reporting that rodents had invaded the building,” said California Healthline. “And where there are rats,”
Bill Clinton Loved McDonald’s,
​Today’s Democrats Protest It

On the campaign trail in 1992, Bill Clinton famously stopped by a McDonald’s during a jog. Impromptu or not, it helped cement Clinton’s image as a regular guy who understands budget-minded middle-class families. Fast forward 27 years, and Democrats are once again making campaign stops at McDonald’s. But not to eat there. No, no, no. They are showing up to protest the fast-food chain for “corporate greed” and for not paying its workers a “living wage.” Kamala Harris, for example, was in Las Vegas marching in a protest and telling those assembled that “if we want to talk about these golden arches being a symbol of the best of America, well

The New York Times is crowing that President Trump is apparently indecisive, if not downright schizophrenic, in deciding how to respond to Iran’s shooting down a U.S. Navy surveillance drone in the strategically vital Strait of Hormuz on Wednesday. We are to believe the Commander-in-Chief ordered an attack, then abruptly belayed that order – hopelessly torn, presumably, between pleasing MAGA Country and appeasing hawkish National Security Adviser John Bolton. Thankfully, the Executive Branch of the federal government is still able to maintain secrecy in conducting defense policy, and the actual deliberations on which options the President is considering probably remain unknown to the nation’s self-styled Newspaper of Record.

Plastic is the eco-activists’ favored demon of the moment. Policymakers can’t get enough of banning plastic consumer items. But the bans are worse than useless. They are counterproductive. California leads the world in virtue signaling, having outlawed single-use plastics bags, as well as plastic straws. Plastic bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and soap handed out by hotels might be the next items prohibited under California law, if lawmakers don’t ban plastics utensils first. Other states have rushed to enact bans, including Vermont, New York, and Hawaii (which has a de facto statewide ban due to multiple county bans). More cities than can be easily counted have either already

Can Iran be free? Or would that entail the U.S. waging another endless, pre-emptive war that Americans simply will not accept in the long term? Of the world’s two most frightening – and most unpredictable – rogue terrorist powers, North Korea and Iran, it had long been thought the one whose ruling elite were in possession of less rationality was Pyongyang. But after meeting with President Trump twice, North Korean absolute ruler Kim Jong-un is acting largely according to the sane-but-evil geopolitical logic his power-hungry 20th century totalitarian antecedents practiced.
Trump Just Revolutionized Health

Few have ever heard of “Health Reimbursement Accounts,” but they could fundamentally change the nation’s health care system — for the better — and destroy the Democrats’ case for socialized health care. Late last week, the Trump administration finalized rules that will let companies put money into tax-exempt HRAs that their employees could then used to buy an individual insurance plan on their own. Seems like no big deal, right? Except it will start to unravel a 77-year-old policy mistake that is largely responsible for many of the problems the health care system suffers today.

In case anyone might be uncertain, Bernie Sanders’ support for socialist health care is made clear by the many banners and signs demanding “Medicare for All” that appear at his rallies. He should hope his staff didn’t burn too much of his campaign budget on the message, though. If the other side plays it smart, one of his signature issues could slip away from him. “I happen to believe from the bottom of my heart, and I’ve believed this for my whole adult life, that health care is a human right and not a privilege,” Sanders said at a townhall in April, “and the best way to go forward in my

Try to imagine this scenario. A once-wealthy nation spirals downward over the course of several years into a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions. Starvation and violence are rampant. The economy has collapsed. Millions have already fled. And all the while, an autocratic ruler acts with complete indifference, when he’s not trying to crush dissent and blame other countries for the misery he’s inflicting on his own. Under normal circumstances, there would be regular protests in Washington. Hollywood actors would be busy creating tear-jerker videos and making emotional award ceremony speeches. Musicians would be putting on global benefit concerts.

Is Kamala Harris telling the

Last night, Kamala Harris repeated her story about how, thanks to busing, she was able to be part of only the second class to integrate in the Berkeley public school system. She used this story to thrash Joe Biden, who offered anti-busing legislation as a U.S. Senator in the 1970s. Last year, I questioned Harris’ story: [I]s it. . .true that Harris was in only the second class to integrate at Berkeley public schools? Based on an examination of old yearbooks from Berkeley High, Freida Powers reports that classrooms at Berkeley High were already integrated in 1963, a year before Harris was born. I wondered whether Harris

Jimmy Carter said he doesn’t believe President Trump won the 2016 election legitimately. Speaking at a Carter Center conference on human rights on Friday, the former president said a full investigation into Russian interference “would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016.” “He lost the election and he was put into office because the Russians interfered on his behalf,” Carter said.

Megan Rapinoe, star forward for the women’s U.S. national soccer team, seems to hate the world. She goes around with a scowl permanently etched into her weathered face. Though an outstanding soccer player, Megs has it in her head that she’s getting cheated, and that the cheater is Donald Trump. So she refused to go to the White House if the team wins the women’s World Cup. Trump then extended an invitation to the team whether they win or lose and of course Megan took it with ill grace. The girl has no graces, only grimaces.

A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion. Last week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. The bill was first introduced in 1989 by former Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Conyers reintroduced the bill each year until his retirement in 2017 — and each year, the bill languished in Congress. The bill’s focus was not to pass reparations, but

A high-profile conservative leader called Thursday for the impeachment of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. after he provided the crucial fifth vote in the Supreme Court decision heading off President Trump’s goal of including a question on citizenship on the 2020 census. Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union and husband of top Trump White House aide Mercedes Schlapp, said the ruling showed the chief justice was not the conservative-minded jurist he’d been touted to be, noting his previous decision essentially preserving Obamacare. “I’m for impeaching the chief justice for lying to all of us about his support

U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam issued the permanent injunction in a California federal court, after initially ruling last month to temporarily halt the administration’s use of military funds for the border wall.

Yet another HUGE story that has been largely ignored by the mainstream media. Thankfully, OAN has been following the ongoing developments that outline how former Obama officials in conjunction with multiple contacts in Congress, have recently been caught working with Iranian officials to defeat the remarkably successful Trump administration’s actions in isolating and possibly hastening the collapse of the #1 sponsor of state terrorism that is the Iranian regime. Let that sink in. Former Obama officials and current members of Congress are working to support and maintain one of the worst human rights violators in the entire world.

2020 contender Kamala Harris came out swinging with a memorable performance in the second night of Democratic debates in Miami. It was Harris' confrontation with former Vice President Joe Biden where she pressured to get him on the record on his past support of segregation-endorsing Democrats and as well as his past stance against busing to desegregate public schools, that left a mark on would-be voters' minds. In an interview with "CBS This Morning" Friday, Harris responded to criticism from Biden's camp that the contentious moment was a "low blow." "It was about just speaking truth and as I've said
