As violent crime spikes in some U.S. cities, former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke claims a Republican Party “death cult mentality” is to blame. Speaking on MSNBC, O’Rourke, a Texas Democrat, was asked to comment on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott both recently calling for schools to reopen for the fall semester, despite the continuing coronavirus pandemic. The former lawmaker quickly pivoted from talking about the virus to talking about gun violence. “These are the same people who want us to accept that more people, including children, will die of gun violence this year in America than in any other developed country, bar none,” O’Rourke said,

This is stunning, although it shouldn't be. They turn everything 180 degrees. Death cult? Abortion, euthanasia, black children murdered on the streets in their riots....I will never be able to understand how these people look in the mirror or sleep at night.

There was a relatively famous psychiatrist, dr. thomas Szasz, who postulated that there was no such thing as mental illness, and that life consisted of the gross inconvenience of others. I don't agree with the first half of his learned opinion, but I do agree with the second half. The fake mexican, Robert, annoys me, but it is more annoying to me that he was actually considered by some to be a viable presidential candidate.He is shallower than Lake Erie, which isthe shallowest of the 5 great lakes, and he is not great. He is dim witted, unable to consider two or three related topics at the same time. i thought robert had gone away for good, but like a herpes lesion, he comes back under duress. Too bad. He belongs in a political laboratory as a subject to be observed, joined by the little homosexual mayor of south Bend. And they could be joined by the former VP of the wretched Obola presidential administration. and there would be room for Tammy Duckworth, the moon faced maven from Thailand.

#1 is spot on. Beto is complaining about the actions of people on his side, then blames the violence on the other side in the face of blatant inflammatory rhetoric he and his fellow Democrats spew every day. Today's Democrat Party truly resembles the Manson Family.

Little boy Beto makes a reappearance. What a joke. Bozo, your 15 minutes were up a long time ago. No more jumping up on restaurant countertops like you're some kind of rock star. No more straining and stumbling over yourself trying to speak Spanish on national TV. The President put it perfectly when he said you made a "complete fool of yourself" trying to run for president. You might be the least "presidential" candidate of all time. Can you imagine this dirt-eating weirdo as Commander in Chief of our armed forces? Go away Junior, you are a complete idiot.

The reason that leftist and liberal Democrats can fraudulently project inner city Black degenerate ghetto culture based murder and violence on the stupid Republicans is because the Republicans almost never defend themselves and their personal and professional reputations , along with the fact that the Democrats have some really dumb constituency groups that are completely ignorant about the world, and who believe whatever nonsense that the Democrats decide to yell out.

Before Thursday morning I had not heard of Thomas Bosco, and I am willing to bet you haven't heard of him either. He runs a café in Upper Manhattan. From the picture in the New York Times, the Indian Road Café is one of those Bobo-friendly brick-lined coffee shops with chalkboard menus affixed to the wall behind the counter and a small stage for down-on-their-luck musicians to warble a few bars of "Fast Car" as you sip on a no-foam latte while editing a diversity training manual. It looks pleasant enough.

"I don't think I've ever seen such dishonest and biased coverage of any event." That was Brit Hume, who has been covering events for more than 50 years for Fox News, ABC News and investigative reporter Jack Anderson. The event, as you may have guessed, was President Donald Trump's Independence (without the scare-quotes) Day speech at Mount Rushmore. The speech was, according to The New York Times, a "dark and divisive speech" designed to deliver a "divisive culture war message."

White Privilege, thy name is Joe Biden! After six weeks of shamelessly exploiting the tragic death of George Floyd for his own personal, political fortune Mr. Biden has finally identified the source — the very headwaters — of White Privilege in America. He found it in the mirror. Everybody knows Mr. Biden has been part of the problem in Washington for 47 years. Yet in the greatest display of insufferable, patriarchal, mansplaining White Privilege, Mr. Biden now claims that he alone is the savior America needs right now. According to him, America today is a systemically racist, unfair hellhole where justice dies at the hands

Today, the Supreme Court navigated its way through disputes about the disclosure of President Trump’s financial records without doing much harm (in my view, at least). However, the Court issued a real stinker in a case that was under my radar — McGirt v. Oklahoma. By a 5-4 vote, the Court decided that much of Oklahoma is “Indian country” for the purpose of prosecuting crimes committed by Indians. Justice Gorsuch joined the four left-liberals and wrote the opinion. Gorsuch’s idiosyncratic “textualism” has become the joker in Supreme Court litigation (Justice Scalia’s sound textualism wasn’t). Today, the joker was wild. The case involved Jimcy McGirt. He was convicted of molesting,

A federal court judge is putting up a highly unusual fight against an appeals court ruling seeking to immediately shut down the prosecution of former national security adviser Michael Flynn for making false statements in the FBI’s investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. Lawyers for U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan filed a petition Thursday asking the full bench of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to review a 2-1 decision a panel of that court issued last month, directing Sullivan to cancel his plans for a hearing and instead grant the government’s request to drop the case.

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening, it’s just not the end of the world.

But as an energy expert asked by the US Congress to provide objective expert testimony and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as an Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize

According to the document, Deutsche Bank agreed to make Epstein a client despite knowing about his jail time for solicitation of underage girls and then turned a blind eye to years of suspicious financial transactions involving some of his former co-conspirators. A trust Epstein set up at Deutsche Bank—the Butterfly Trust—sent payments to women with Eastern European names. He also withdrew around $800,000 in cash which he allegedly used on travel and tipping expenses.

According to the poll conducted by the Washington based thinktank the Democracy Institute, President Trump is neck and neck with his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent. However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.
