Apologist Democrats are a sorry lot

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 7/14/2019 4:55:54 AM

Remember Tom Hanks’ famous line from “A League of Their Own”? “There’s no crying in baseball.” Well, if President Trump had coined a motto back in 2016, it probably would have been, “There’s no apologizing in politics.” No matter how much outrage Trump sparked, he never said he was sorry. You could argue that there were times when an apology was warranted. (The McCain War Hero debacle in 2015 comes to mind). But there is no arguing that Trump’s strategy was a bold one. And as the 2020 election nears, he is still the only individual steering clear of the words, “I’m sorry.”

Sorry to say, McCain was a scu*bag subsequent to his military service; his celebrity status and power controlled his thoughts and actions.

Trump owes nobody any apologies, so I am not reading further. Have a nice day!

They apologize for having positions or making comments that were considered normal at the time, and its pure pandering. They wont, however, apologize for bad behavior towards people of faith or people that hold opposing views. And they will never apologize for bad and failed policies or positions. And they will never apologize for advancing lies against their opponents or scorched earth tactics to achieve power.

McCain was not a "war hero." He managed to get himself shot down and survived captivity. That doesn't make him a "war hero" IMHO.

Democrat Internal Poll of Swing Voters
Is Leaked and the Results Are Brutal

Some Democrat strategist is going to wake up in a cold sweat later tonight after seeing this. The Democratic Party conducted an internal poll of swing voters, including their feelings on the “squad” and socialism. The result are absolutely brutal when juxtaposed with the stated positions of those running in the 2020 Democratic primary race. The poll was leaked to Axios and here are some of the results.[tweet]The poll — taken in May, before Speaker Pelosi’s latest run-in with AOC and the three other liberal House freshmen known as “The Squad” — included 1,003 likely general-election voters who are white and have two years or less of college education.
The Arrogance And The Ignorance 7 replies

Separately, arrogance and ignorance are some of humanity’s worst traits. Together, when coupled with power, they achieve “weapon-grade stupid” status. This is the marinade of the “gang of four,” the “progressive” Congresswomen – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar – who I’d accuse of having exponentially more social media followers than accomplishments, but it’s impossible to multiply by zero. This week we witnessed why those two traits together are such a problem for Democrats, and it was hilarious. Individually, the Gang of Four have strung together an uninterrupted string of gaffes, stupid statements, and racist comments that would humiliate your average teenager. But what they possess individually
The Post says: de Blasio

The lights went out on Broadway Saturday night, and Bill de Blasio was a thousand miles away in Iowa. It was the moment that perfectly captured his distracted, ego-driven failure of a mayoralty. Bill de Blasio does not care about New York City. He does not care about its people. He does not care about how it’s run. He does not care about you or your taxes, creating jobs or improving lives. All Bill de Blasio cares about is Bill de Blasio. And so, for the good of the city, Gov. Andrew Cuomo needs to remove the mayor from office. Let’s face it:

The Baltimore-based Xaverian Brothers released Friday a list of 34 members who have been accused of sexually abusing children. The list includes two men “with a credible or established offense against a minor” who are currently members of the religious order, according to documents released on the order’s website. The order also identified 18 other deceased or former Xaverian Brothers with a “credible or established offense.” Nine brothers identified by the order were at some point assigned to Mount Saint Joseph High School in Southwest Baltimore. One of the brothers, Joseph A. Cuthbert, C.F.X., has been credibly accused of sexual abuse during his tenure

It was obvious to anyone watching the men’s Wimbledon final on Sunday to notice that the crowd leaned heavily in favor of eight-time champion Roger Federer over his opponent Novak Djokovic. The New York Times summed up the crowd’s reaction: When Federer made an error, there were groans; when Djokovic made an error, there was applause. Still, the booing throughout caught the attention of many on social media. A reporter for Bloomberg tweeted, “I get that it’s a pro-Federer crowd but the booing of Djokovic at Wimbledon was undeserved and sort of pathetic.”
The Biden Plan for Appeasement 3 replies

Vice President Biden’s promise to resume the Obama administration’s appeasement of the theocratic dictators of Iran is a shocking marker. It is the headline news in the foreign policy platform Mr. Biden just outlined in a speech at New York University. It comes from the politician said to be the most centrist figure in the Democratic scrum. So it will reinforce President Trump’s credibility in the coming campaign. On the one hand, this isn’t surprising. Mr. Biden himself has always been a weak figure in the Middle East. When he was on the Foreign Relations Committee, he was so condescending to Menachem Begin that the visiting Israeli premier publicly

Rep. Devin Nunes said Republicans plan to grill former special counsel Robert Mueller about his top prosecutor when he testifies in an open setting later this month. Andrew Weissmann, who was known as Mueller's "pitbull," will be the subject of multiple lines of inquiry, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee told Fox News' Bill Hemmer on an episode of the "Hemmer Time" podcast. In a preview of what he and his GOP colleagues will ask on July 24, Nunes said Mueller will be pressed on why the FBI withheld from his panel that Weissmann briefed Associated Press reporters in 2017 on "something to do with the Trump-Russia investigation"

A lex Acosta did a bad job on the Jeffrey Epstein case. This column was nearly finished when news broke Friday that he would resign as labor secretary. I was going to argue that his lapses did not justify joining the nakedly political mau-mauing by Democrats who have no interest in exploring the behavior of Democrats who are neck-deep in a monstrous pedophile’s activities. My friend Jennifer Braceras has ably addressed that point in a Washington Examiner column. I was also going to add that I’d shed no tears if President Trump forced Acosta out — easy for me to say, since I think (a) he should never

Conservatives talk a lot about how we don’t like identity politics. But it’s not always clear what people mean by it. Academics and intellectuals tend to mean one thing, while politicians and activists often have something slightly different in mind. Democratic politicians who engage in identity politics often mean something like “ethnic politics,” by which members of a community organize in their collective interest. Conservatives sometimes use “identity politics” to describe simple ethnic politics, but only when it’s ethnic politics they don’t like. What they leave out is that this form of political engagement is as old as the country itself, because it’s as old as politics itself.

‘We’re holding a gun to our own heads,’ said Sen. John Cornyn in June. He was talking about President Trump’s threat to impose tariffs in order to force Mexico to crack down on illegal immigration into the Unites States. Many congressmen agreed, fearing, as establishment figures are prone to do, that Trump was risking the whole economy for some nebulous border demand. A month later, it seems Trump’s tariff gambit has worked. After Mexican officials agreed to crack down on illegal immigration to avoid US-imposed tariffs, the Department of Homeland Security reports that border apprehensions dropped from 144,278 in May to 104,344 in June — a 28 percent decrease.

Regular readers know that I am a fan of President Trump, and more often than not, a fan of his use of social media. But today he committed the worst unforced error of his presidency, one that we will hear about from the Democrats from now until November 2020. This morning the president tweeted about “‘Progressive’ Democratic Congresswomen”: [Tweet]I assume Trump is talking about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her “Squad,” and I share his low opinion of those ill-informed leftists. And no doubt he had in mind Ilhan Omar when he referred to “countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe,” etc. His description certainly applies to Somalia.

James Bond fans wanting 007 to be either black or female are in for a double treat—with the movie spy about to be played by a black woman, according to a report on Sunday. British actress Lashana Lynch, 31, will be introduced as the new 007 in what is being described as a ‘popcorn-dropping moment’ in the franchise’s 25th movie that is currently being filmed, according to the Mail on Sunday. But it is not a complete do-over—with her just taking James Bond’s secret agent number after he retires from MI6, the report states.

Apparently, the Bezos Bulletin scribe realizes he’s lost his influence on the Grand Old Party and now offers advice to the Democrats on their nominee, in hopes that someone out there still cares about his opinions.His disgust at President Trump – who has the support of roughly 90% of Republicans – is such that he has now taken to telling (fellow?)

(Tweet) Rapinoe, the co-captain of the World Cup-winning U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, has in many ways become a media fascination, best known for protesting during the U.S. national anthem. Given Rapinoe’s strong opposition to President Trump and her strong stances on political issues, Public Policy Polling decided to poll a head-to-head contest between the president and the soccer star.The result? Rapinoe bested the president by one percentage point.

Former President Bill Clinton tried to push back on reporting about trips he took with Jeffery Epstein where Secret Service were not listed on flight manifests, but failed to address why records show he took six separate trips on the "Lolita Express." Clinton's press secretary Angel Ureña said Monday that Clinton had traveled four times in total with the alleged child sex trafficker, and "Supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail, traveled on every leg of every trip.” Ureña only responded to a Washington Examiner inquiry about the trips after publication. Ureña did not reply to repeated questions about the discrepancy between the number of trips Clinton, 72,
