Kirsten Gillibrand Proclaims Zero Tolerance for Prolife Views

Establishing “racism” as so beyond the pale that anyone accused of being a racist can be unpersoned was quite a coup for the radical Left. But the Democrat Party did not rest on its laurels. Now valuing the sanctity of innocent human life is inexcusable too, according to ostentatiously evil presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand:

Declaring a viewpoint ideologically unclean and crushing it under a zero tolerance policy is much easier than debating the issue.

Again we see that abortion isn’t just a convenience for liberals. It is some kind of satanic sacrament, possibly more precious to them even than homosexuality.

Kirsten Gillibrand: Let Illegals Collect Social Security

Desperate to draw attention to her floundering presidential campaign by outmoonbatting the other moonbats, Kirsten Gillibrand now calls for people who are in the country in violation of US law to be paid Social Security benefits by the US government — after they are rewarded with amnesty:

In the midst of a full-scale crisis as numberless hordes of needy invaders storm the border, she also wants to abolish ICE.

Gillibrand could not possibly make her contempt for America and its laws any clearer. But no doubt she will keep trying.

Kirsten Gillibrand Demands Trump Resign

What to do when the Russian collusion dog & pony show runs out of gas, or worse yet, reveals that it was Democrats doing the colluding? The absurd Kirsten Gillibrand has an idea that serendipitously also helps keep her at the forefront of a party rushing headlong to the last limits of political irresponsibility — a must if she is going to run for president. Now Trump must resign because #MeToo; if he refuses, Kirsten will take action:

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said Sunday she believes Congress should hold President Trump accountable for the numerous allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him.

“I think he should resign, and if he’s unwilling to do that, which is what I assume, then Congress should hold him accountable. We’re obligated to have hearings,” Gillibrand said in an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

What do they need hearings for? Accusation = guilt when it comes to #MeToo, so Trump did whatever moonbats say. Let’s move straight to impeachment. Cognitively challenged congresscritters Al Green and Maxine Waters are sure to offer their support.

It makes Gillibrand’s madcap antics all the more hilarious that she may owe her position to her alliance with the Clintons. That would be Bill Clinton — the grand daddy of politically powerful serial sexual molesters — and his enabler wife who trashed the reputations of his victims.

Although she has since turned around and said he should have resigned, Gillibrand defended Slick Willy’s indefensible behavior, and regards Hillary as her “greatest role model in politics.”

Kirsten Gillibrand Applies Feminist Ideology to the Military

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) is a ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel. She vows to block the appointment of the highly regarded James Mattis as Defense Secretary. This is consistent with her tendency to promote an ideology that is not a smooth fit with military effectiveness. Gillibrand…

cheered the Pentagon’s decision to open up all combat jobs to women last December, despite a recommendation from the Marine Corps to keep some frontline combat jobs closed to women. A comprehensive study by the service found that female members were injured twice as often as men in combat, less accurate with infantry weapons, and not as effective at removing wounded individuals from the battlefield.

In other news pertaining to the feminist agenda, a moonbat named Churan Zheng barks from atop a soapbox provided by the BBC that women should be allowed to take time off work each month due to menstruation:

I cannot stop thinking that if men had periods then menstrual leave might have been written into national constitutions from the very beginning.

It would hardly be surprising to see Gillibrand propose legislation imposing this on the armed forces.

We had better stay out of major wars if the military continues to be used as a laboratory for leftist social engineers. Fortunately, this nonsense will be constrained if moonbats like Gillibrand are unable to block the highly encouraging nomination of James Mattis.

Powerful Democrats Threaten Supreme Court

If the currently radicalized Democrat Party gets control of Congress and the White House, we will be in for much worse than a few years of kookiness and mismanagement. Once in power, they intend to overhaul the system so that they can fully impose their demented agenda. The Supreme Court will either submit passively or face restructuring:

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court’s conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

Bullying is on open display in the brief:

“Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'”

The last part was quoting language from a Quinnipiac University poll, in which 51 percent favored such restructuring. In the same poll, 55 percent believed the Supreme Court was “motivated by politics” more than by the law.

Hopefully, a far higher percentage understand that Senate Democrats are motivated by politics and create laws for political ends.

Once they can find a poll telling them that 51% are in favor of scrapping the Constitution in the heated aftermath of the latest event the media has chosen to strategically hype, Democrats stand ready to seize the opportunity. Those of us who bitterly cling to the Constitution will be designated as “not well” and treated accordingly.

How might the highest court be restructured so that Democrats can be sure it will rubber-stamp its agenda?

Dramatic changes to the Supreme Court have been proposed by several Democrats vying for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination, with “court-packing” being a common — though highly controversial — suggestion. Increasing the number of justices on the court would allow the president to shift the balance on the bench by loading up justices of his or her preference.

Democrat icon FDR used the threat of court-packing to intimidate the Supremes into accepting the New Deal. The ensuing explosive expansion of federal power was never reversed.

Democrat presidential candidates radical enough to propose such a tyrannical measure even before seizing power include Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, Cory Booker, Pete Buttwhatever, and of course the desperately shameless flyweight Kirsten Gillibrand.

Note that the brief was filed in the context of attacking our constitutional right to bear arms.

In addition to packing the court, radicalized Democrats have proposed or even already initiated other attacks on our system of government, including H.R.1 (the Democrat Politician Protection Act), disabling the Electoral College, and abolishing the Senate.

If we didn’t have a Flight 93 election in 2016, we may in 2020.

High Burn Rates for Faltering Democrat Campaigns

Democrats are running their campaigns the same way they would run the government — by throwing money to the four winds, heedless of the consequences. Just like the country may do if any of them is elected, their campaigns are going broke:

In the last fundraising quarter, nearly half of the Democratic presidential candidates spent more than they raised in donations.

Campaigns with the highest burn rates include lame joke candidates Kirsten Gillibrand, Robert Francis O’Rourke, and Cory Booker.

They may call campaign deficits “burn rates” because the schmucks who donated to these doomed campaigns got burned.

The profligate spenders will have to get their campaigns into gear quickly to keep from going under. Watch for them to spout still more outrageous moonbattery at the next debate opportunity.

Democrat Event Features Homage to Cop-Killer Assata Shakur

Just how radical — i.e., just how sociopathic and malevolent — has the Democrat Party become? You can get an idea by considering that at a conference featuring eight POTUS hopefuls, the crowd chanted in unison the rhetoric of cold-blooded communist cop-killer Assata Shakur:

Jamal Watkins, the Vice President of Civic Engagement at the NAACP, began by telling the audience at the We the People conference that he would invoke the words of Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Chesimard.

The black supremacist Joanne Chesimard/Assata Shakur was convicted of the first-degree murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster. She reminded us why we need the death penalty by escaping to Cuba, which harbors her for ideological reasons and to poke a finger in America’s eye. She remains on the FBI most wanted list as a fugitive terrorist.

Radical leftists revere her as a role model, especially in academia. Temple University’s Marc Lamont Hill, familiar from many cable news appearances, sings her praises. Black Lives Matter hooligans have been seen wearing “ASSATA TAUGHT ME” on their shirts as they riot. The UC Berkeley Black Student Union demanded that a building be named after her. City College of New York named a community center after her. The Colin Kaepernick Foundation donates money to Assata’s Daughters, an outfit that promotes “direct action” — which presumably would entail murdering police officers.

Watkins then quoted Shakur, pausing to let attendees repeat after him: “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

In contrast, regular Americans have everything to lose, starting with our country if these maniacs are able to seize more power.

If the quote does not sound alarming, remember that leftists speak in cloyingly fake euphemisms that are often Orwellian. By freedom, they mean the slavery of collectivist totalitarianism. To “win” is to destroy American society. To “support each other” is to impose communism.

Having nothing to lose but their chains was lifted from the Communist Manifesto, which could virtually serve as the Democrat Party platform now — provided you throw in a few pages about killing babies, suppressing economic output in the name of the weather, punishing white people, and promoting sexual perversion.

Participants at the conference included Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, Cory Booker, Julián Castro, Amy Klobuchar, Jay Inslee, and Kirsten Gillibrand.

At least Joe Biden wasn’t there — but probably only because he is laying low in the futile hope that the #MeToo onslaught blows over.

The Literal Insanity of AOC’s Green New Deal

If Bernie Sanders is America’s Hugo Chavez, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is our Pol Pot. Her demented Green New Deal would require totalitarian social engineering on a scale not seen since the Khmer Rouge killed off a quarter of the population of Cambodia. The more we learn about it, the more loudly sane people laugh — unless they have read up on their 20th century history and realize that people like her sometimes end up in power.

Yesterday AOC et al released an overview. It is staggering.

Stalin only had 5-year plans. AOC doubles that with a 10-year plan that eliminates all greenhouse gas emissions. This alone is impossible; merely breathing creates greenhouse gas emissions. But this isn’t really about global warming malarkey. It is about leaving “liberalism” behind and going whole hog for communism.

Per OAC’s website (although it looks like they just now took this down), the Green New Deal explicitly guarantees everyone the following at everyone else’s expense:

• A job with family-sustaining wages, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security
• High-quality education, including higher education and trade schools
• High-quality health care
• Clean air and water
• Healthy food
• Safe, affordable, adequate housing
• An economic environment free of monopolies [except for Big Government, which would have an absolute monopoly on everything]
• Economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work

You read that correctly: unwilling to work. Here we see why the dregs of humanity will actually vote for socialists like Bernie and AOC. The plan is for us to work as slaves to finance their workfree lifestyle as they lay around puffing on legalized dope. Because “social justice.”

AOC’s wish list would come at an incomprehensible cost, which she resolutely refuses to address. Even at a 100% taxation rate, there is no chance we could afford any of it after the economy has been reduced to absolute ruin by a ban on the fossil fuels and nuclear energy that make it go. Presumably, the plan is to just print the money, like they do in other socialist utopias like Zimbabwe and Venezuela.

The Federalist lists the 10 most insane requirements of the Green New Deal plus bonus insanity (click through for annotation):

1. Ban affordable energy.
2. Eliminate nuclear energy.
3. Eliminate 99 percent of cars.
4. Gut and rebuild every building in America.
5. Eliminate air travel.
6. A government-guaranteed job.
7. Free education for life.
8. A salubrious diet.
9. A house.
10. Free money.
11. Bonus insanity: Ban meat.

Even a half-serious attempt to bring this to fruition would mean the collapse of the economy, totalitarianism, and the effective end of property rights. In short, this is a call for the end civilization in America.

That’s okay, people chuckle. Everyone knows that AOC is a screwball and far dumber than most of her fellow bartenders. No one takes this stuff seriously.

No one? From Fox News:

The plan, which calls for a massive package of big-government proposals including health care for all, quickly picked up the backing of major 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls including Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Cory Booker, D-N.J. — who all co-sponsored the resolution.

Other presidential hopefuls Kirsten Gillibrand, Julián Castro, and Beto O’Rourke have expressed their support.

Even a token attempt to implement this agenda would be devastating to the economy. The government is already about $22 trillion in debt and counting quickly. Merely to elect someone who would not react to the Green New Deal with horror would be to move the Overton window so far to the left as to exclude wealth and freedom from our socialist future.

Moonbat Rapper Elected in New York State

Yesterday did not turn out well for high-profile ultra-moonbats, even if some of their races were close enough to evoke horror in regular Americans. F-bombing Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke lost. Andrew Gillum lost. Stacey Abrams apparently lost, even if she is too racially entitled to admit it. Kyrsten Sinema is trailing, though the race has not been called. But those at the farthest fringes of the Left can take heart from results in increasingly radical New York State.

The punchline named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a parody of a ditzy clueless leftist, won in a blowout, as did Kirsten Gillibrand, who it is difficult to take much more seriously. So did the frighteningly fascistic Andrew Cuomo.

Then there is upstate, where it used to be possible to flee from the moonbattery, but where Antonio Delgado dislodged Republican John Faso in a district won by Trump. The correctly pigmented Delgado will represent the incorrectly pigmented Hudson Valley and Catskills.

Delgado, who once used his music career to influence others about social justice, attacked Faso’s support for repealing Obamacare.

Some may know Delgado as “AD The Voice,” a rapper given to projectile vomiting “politically provocative and racially charged lyrics”:

[H]e frequently hurls the N-word, slaps the two-party political system, rips the “dead” presidents as “white supremacists,” blasts capitalism, likens blacks to modern day slaves, calls poverty the “purest form of terrorism” and boasts of “having sex to a porno flick.”

Presumably, he laid off this stuff during the campaign. But these days, who knows?

Moonbats Send Diapers to Female Democrat Senators to Help Them Block Kavanaugh

In better times, Senate confirmation was just a formality for highly qualified nominees like Brett Kavanaugh. Nowadays, Democrats will go to absurd lengths to block any nominee not of their own choosing, in hopes of rendering our democratic republic dysfunctional whenever elections don’t go their way. Their supporters in the private sector want them to be well prepared for the struggle ahead, which evidently may entail bladder leaks for female Democrat Senators:

THINX and Icon … said they were sending female Democratic senators urine absorbent underwear to “prepare them for hearings and other potential roadblock attempts in efforts to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation.”

They must think the hearings will be intensely exciting — or more likely, unendurably drawn-out.

Designated diaper recipients include presumed presidential hopefuls Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand.

The “Endurance Packages” include one pair of Icon “moderate absorbency underwear,” which holds between six and eight teaspoons of urine.

Maybe Fauxcahontas will ease off from her rabid squirrel demeanor if she can just let loose in her pants whenever she feels the need.

The THINX people are not trolling countermoonbats but genuine progressives. Here’s how you can tell:

THINX also publishes a feminist blog, with headlines such as, “The Great Barrier Queef: Diving Deep Into The Vagina Fart,” “How to Make DIY Tampon Earrings,” “Creating Space for Black Women to be Period-Proud,” “I Don’t Like Period Sex, Am I A Bad Feminist?” and “Period Reflections… with my Dad.”

Even if she isn’t in the Senate, they might consider sending diapers to Mad Maxine Waters. She often looks like she could use them.

Setting the Forest Fires Americans Won’t Set

To the long list of reasons to assert control over who pours into the country, we can add forest fires, like the Springs Fire that has been ravaging Colorado, forcing hundreds to evacuate their homes:

Jesper Joergensen, 52, was taken into custody last Saturday for the suspected arson that started the Springs Fire, according to Costilla County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.

Joergensen is not a U.S. citizen and will be handed over to ICE once he has faced arson charges, said a Costilla County detention officer.

Good thing leftists like Kirsten Gillibrand and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez haven’t accomplished their goal of disbanding ICE yet.

The fire has scorched over 38,000 acres (15,378 hectares) between the towns of Fort Garland and La Veta in southern Colorado, forcing more mandatory evacuations of homes and ranches on Saturday in a mountainous area of public and private land.

In addition to the vast property damage and all the fauna killed and flora destroyed, massive carbon emissions must have been produced. That ought to get progressives concerned.

Joergensen hails from Denmark. Our open borders are a beacon to people from every corner of the world. Those who enter the country illegally are not people we want here.

This is far from the first time an illegal alien has started a forest fire in the flammably arid Southwest. Even open borders–friendly John McCain is aware of the problem. In 2011 he coauthored a statement with other prominent Arizona politicians that read in part:

“During our tour of the damaged areas caused by the Wallow Fire on Saturday, we were briefed by senior Forest Service officials, one of whom informed us that some wildfires in Arizona (across our southern border) are regrettably caused by drug smugglers and illegal immigrants. This statement is consistent with what we’ve been hearing for years, as well as testimony by the Forest Service and media reports dating back as far as 2006.”

A GAO report of forest fires occurring during 2006–2010 identified 30 illegal aliens guilty of starting them.

Border control is a national security issue. That’s why we have ICE.

Senators Support Unlawful Demonstration Demanding Abolition of ICE

Once you could expect Senators of either party to respect the laws of the United States as well as its territorial integrity. Due to cultural degeneration and the extreme radicalization of the Democratic Party, this is no longer the case, as could be seen at a demonstration demanding the abolition of ICE yesterday in DC:

Capitol Police said 575 protesters were arrested and escorted out of the Hart Senate Office Building in a mass demonstration that called for the abolishment of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, and an end to migrant family detentions and the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy.

They were charged with unlawfully demonstrating, a misdemeanor.

Participants in this unlawful demonstration in support of dismantling our border defenses included Senator Elizabeth Warren, in full demagogue mode. In addition,

As police continued to clear the area, several senators greeted demonstrators, including Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.).

The House of Representatives was represented too:

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) joined in the protest and was led out with marchers by Capitol Police.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won’t be the first congresscritter to believe in abolishing immigration enforcement altogether, essentially erasing America’s borders.

Some of the most influential Democrats are unelected. Representing the party’s Hollyweird/MSM power base,

Actress Susan Sarandon, who marched at the front as the protest made its way down Constitution Avenue, was arrested with a group of demonstrators.

Juvenile anti-American antics have been accepted as normal among actresses since the glory days of Hanoi Jane Fonda. But for actual Senators to give their stamp of approval is alarming in the extreme. These quislings are literally calling for the United States to submit to a foreign invasion. Not long ago, that would have been recognized as treason.
