Schumer unloads on Gorsuch, Kavanaugh at abortion rights rally: ‘You will pay the price!’ | Fox News

OK, this was not a paraphrase. We didn’t have an Adam Schiff moment and make this up out of whole cloth to make it say what we wanted it to say. This is the unedited video of what the democratic Senate Majority Leader said on the steps of the Capitol yesterday. It is disgusting and it shows just how far off the cliff the leftists have pushed the Democratic Party.

A fired-up Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., appeared to issue a vague warning toward Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh on Wednesday, during a rally held as the court heard arguments in a high-profile abortion case. At the rally hosted by the Center for Reproductive Rights, Schumer noted that the case, June Medical Services LLC v. Russo, is the first “major” abortion case since President Trump’s court picks have been on the bench. The dispute, dealing with restrictions over who can perform abortions, involves a Louisiana law similar to one in Texas that the court ruled unconstitutional in 2016, before either Trump justice was on the Supreme Court and before conservatives held a 5-4 majority. “I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price!” Schumer warned. “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

What A Difference A Day Makes II

Well. Super Tuesday is over, and there have been some surprises. Joe Biden had a solid showing and seemed to have beaten back the assault by Bernie Sanders, at least for the moment. The primaries are quite definitely a two-person race now with Biden regaining his status as the front runner. Whether the sudden dropout of Amy Klobuchar and Mayor Pete was engineered by DNC Pressure or political horse-trading by Biden, the gambit paid off. Clearly, late deciders who might have voted for either Klobuchar or Buttigieg showed up anyway and voted overwhelmingly for the former Vice President. 

Bloomberg and Warren did exceptionally poorly. Warren finished a distant third in her home state of Massachusetts. If she stays in the race after today she clearly needs an intervention by loved ones. Bloomberg has spent somewhere between seven hundred million and one billion dollars to win American Somoa and a pitful amount of delegates in all the other states where he finished third or worse. 
The good thing about being the frontrunner is that it makes it easier to raise money. But it also puts a target on your back. Not that Biden has much to worry about in terms of winning the nomination. But it will be interesting to see how Biden acquits himself in what will largely be a one on one debate with Sanders on March 15 in Phoenix. 

Of course, two weeks is an eternity at this stage of the campaign. Still, I think Sanders’s utterly stupid defense of Fidel Castro when given a chance to clarify earlier remarks has given his opposition a soundbite that keeps on giving. On the other hand, Biden needs to stop being such a gaff machine. This aspect of his personality becomes less appealing the closer he gets to be the one in charge of the nuclear football.

There is one other thing that had an impact on Bernie’s numbers yesterday. Many of that vaunted age demographic he is so popular with, those 18-29 years of age, did not show up. Dealing with this age group in the business world, I can tell you they are mostly lazy and unreliable when it comes to doing what it takes to get things done. Attending rallies with your friends is exciting and fun. But drag yourself away from the video games and texts and sexts and videos to vote? That’s the boring part someone else should be doing. And that could be Bernies’ biggest problem going forward. 

What A Difference A Day Makes

Amy and Mayor Pete dropped out of the race yesterday and endorsed Joe Biden. No surprise there, except perhaps in the timing. Whether there was a deal made or there was severe pressure from the Party elite, it is impossible to tell at this point. Elizabeth Warren is still in the race, apparently with the party’s blessing, both because she is no threat to take the nomination and because she takes votes away from Bernie. How she can justify to herself staying in the race at this point testifies both to her colossal ego and her capacity for self-delusion. 

Interestingly, the fly in the ointment here is the one brought in by the top Commissars in the Party, Mike Bloomberg. He was supposed to be the safety valve, one with wads of cash. Now it seems he just might upset the Biden applecart, splitting the liberal vote and handing Sanders a plurality of delegates by this time tomorrow. Maybe not. But it will be interesting to see how the establishment members of the Democratic Party Politbureau react. 

For the real powers in the DNC, it is all about control. They have already lost control of the House. Not to Republicans but rather to their radical left-wing base. They are not taking that situation lying down, though, as more and more stories emerge about Omar’s alleged incestuous marriage and immigration fraud. They would not be able to primary AOC out of the way. But there have been stories already floated that in the redistricting that takes place after the census causes NY to lose a House seat, hers might be the one to go poof!

What a difference a day makes. By this time tomorrow, we will have many questions answered, but those answers are likely to generate new and more exciting questions. Buckle up. This is going to be a bumpy ride! 

CBS’s Scott Pelley Fact-Checks Mike Bloomberg On Trump Coronavirus Comment | The Daily Caller

Don’t bother to check the facts before you shoot your mouth off. Bloomberg may be new to the left but he is learning the tactics.

CBS host Scott Pelley fact-checked Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg on air after the former New York City mayor tried to claim that President Donald Trump described the coronavirus outbreak as a “hoax.”

“I find it incomprehensible that the president would do something as inane as calling it a ‘hoax’ which he did last night in South Carolina,” Bloomberg said when Pelley introduced the topic during a “60 Minutes” interview set to run Sunday evening.

“He said that the Democrats making so much of it is a Democratic hoax, not that the virus is a hoax,” Pelley responded.

Not seeming to understand what the CBS host was getting at, Bloomberg pressed on. “This is up to the scientists and the doctors as to whether there is a problem,” he continued. “They all, around the world, say that it is in some places, and has enormous potential to become one elsewhere. And it is just ignorant and irresponsible to not stand up and be the leader and say, ‘We don’t know, but we have to prepare for the fact that, if it is, we have the medicines and the structure and the knowledge to deal with it.’”

Dems Got Hysterical About FCC Chairman Rejecting Net Neutrality. Two Years Later, He’s Vindicated And Firing Back. | The Daily Wire

In retrospect, 2017 was a quaint time in our nation’s history. The coronavirus wasn’t threatening to kill us all, the Trump administration hadn’t killed us all, and the Trump tax cuts were still months away from killing us all. In fact, the only thing threatening to end life as we know it back then was the proposal to repeal Net Neutrality, a 2015 regulation that we’re told made the Internet better somehow. To repeal it, we were told in 2017 and 2018, would literally mean the “end of the Internet as we know it,” as CNN’s front page blared in February 2017. As attorney James Hasson documented on Twitter former feminist/birth control icon Sandra Fluke declared repealing the regulation “would kill access to abortion information,” while GLAAD insisted the repealing would be “an attack on the LGBTQ community.” GQ claimed it would “ruin the internet forever,” and the American Civil Liberties Union insisted it would lead to a “two-tier Internet.” And let’s not forget Rep. Ro Khanna’s (D-CA) graphic claiming that without net neutrality, we would be charged separately for video, email, gaming, and social media.

Pete Buttigieg Dropping Out of White House Race

Another one bites the dust.

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) is ending his presidential campaign on Sunday, following a disappointing finish in the South Carolina primary, according to reports. Buttigieg, who met with former President Jimmy Carter in Georgia earlier Sunday, told reporters he will make an announcement in South Bend at 8:30 p.m. instead of traveling to Texas, where he was scheduled to campaign for Super Tuesday. After Saturday’s fourth-place finish in South Carolina, Buttigieg sang a vastly different tune, vowing to remain in the race for weeks and months to come. “This is the majority we will seek to energize into Super Tuesday and beyond, welcoming new allies as we go,” he told supporters in his concession speech.

It’s All Trump’s Fault!

The spread of the coronavirus in Europe and Asia is undoubtedly a cause for concern. But the abject panic by investors in the Stock Market seems a bit extreme. There will be some supply chain disruptions, but the reaction to this has been more like a response to bubonic plague rather than severe flu that is causing a higher death rate in countries with poor hygienic practices and substandard medical infrastructure. Yes, every action should be taken to stem the spread of the disease and treat those affected. But this is not a Steven King Novel, and the nations of the world are not going to become vast wastelands populated by a handful of survivors.

Of course, someone has to be blamed for this. And the Democrats have chosen to blame-hold on to your hat-Donald J. Trump. They haven’t figured out a way to quite pin the blame on him for originating the virus, but they are quick to jump on every action he takes in response to it. You would think…well, never mind. This is the same party that is probably going to nominate a Socialist to be their candidate for POTUS. Their entire party is in panic and disarray, and they are projecting that onto the Administration.

The spread of coronavirus into the general population in the US may or may not be inevitable. But one thing we can be positive of is that the desperate Democrats will seize on and politicize yet another crisis to bolster their flagging chances at winning the White House and the genuine possibility that they will lose the House of Representatives. But that’s what you get from a party who sees their role as to rule over people rather than govern them. The difference between those two terms is stark but lost on the Democrats.

Bernie’s Fantasy World

I was watching a mother’s panel on fox news this morning, and one of the ladies mentioned a website called bernietax.com. Out of curiosity, I took a look at it. And based on what he presents there, my disposable income would be almost 100 dollars a week more. Sounds great, right? If you ignore the reality that what is presented there is utter nonsense, you might be tempted to support the Sanders candidacy. If you can overlook the fact that his proposals would double or even triple the federal budget, it is easy to convince yourself that middle and lower-income taxpayers will pay less under a Sanders administration. You also might want to check to see if someone has mixed peyote into your weed. 

Bernie has become quite adept at dodging the question of the price tag of all the “free” stuff he keeps promising the gullible and the stupid. Health care, as proposed by Sanders, would cost more than the entire current federal budget. He also wants to cancel all student loan debt, make college free for everyone, and provide universal pre-k for all. When pressed for details, he merely says the rich and the corporations will pay their “fair share.” No, they won’t. Economics 101: Companies never pay a penny in tax. They include it in their cost of doing business and pass it on to their customers. The rich and their money will run for the proverbial hills should this buffoon get elected, and the only ones who will benefit will be the tax havens. 

But Bernie lives in a fantasy world. In his world, Castro was cool because he taught his subjects to read and write before he imprisoned and shot them for doing just that. Cuba was such a beautiful place to live that thousands risked their lives to get here on literally anything that would float. In Bernie’s world China is a paragon of progress and prosperity as long as you can ignore the imprisonment, torture, and murder of millions.  The people of Hong Kong are not impressed. They are getting beaten, teargassed, and shot in the streets for having the audacity to protest the Beijing interference on their island. Unlike Sanders and his idiot followers, they are not interested in the Chinese socialist paradise. 

It will be interesting to see tonight at the Democratic debate if the other candidates take advantage of the free oppo research the DNC has instructed its minions in the press to trumpet. Not that all this stuff isn’t true. But the Democrats and their propagandist media are becoming quite proficient at releasing information and videos at a time expertly calculated to do those they oppose the most harm. 

But in Bernie’s world, he is going to get the nomination and beat President Trump. But the reality is that should he get the nomination, it would be a forty state landslide for President Trump. And the powers that be in the DNC know that. I have a feeling that as long as Sanders is in this race, he will be targeted in a way that is usually reserved for Republican Supreme Court nominees and Donald Trump. Welcome to the real world, Bernie.   

Brokered Convention Or Bernie Sanders: Which Is Worse For The Democrats?

Despite all the talk about how Bloomberg and his money are going to come riding in on his white stallion to save the Democrats from their voters, they seem to be left with two equally unappealing choices. There is another debate next week, and if Mikey has the same type of showing he had in the last debate, all the slick Madison Avenue advertising and creatively edited tweets may not be able to rescue his campaign. He might be better prepares for the next debate in terms of oppo research, and he might even be able to respond to some of the challenges he had to know were coming in the first debate. But he comes off as a condescending, egotistical, self-important, elitist jerk. That’s going to be a lot harder to fix in a week. 

For better or worse, people pick their favorites based on some very superficial criteria. That’s why we have a political discourse in this country that is ninety percent about the negative qualities of the opposition candidate and precious little about the free and open exchange of ideas. Bloomberg is woefully unappealing in many of those areas that would be necessary to have a broad appeal in a party where the rank and file voters range from very liberal to socialist. The fact that he is a billionaire does not bother me, nor does the fact that he is self-funding his campaign. But when the rest of the Party pounds a constant drumbeat against the one percent, being a member of that group cannot help.

At the moment, there seem to be three choices here, each of which is sure to cause upheaval among Democrats. One is that Bloomberg somehow becomes a viable candidate and can buy the nomination after sitting out most of the campaign. How will all those volunteers and campaign staff workers, and supporters who have slogged through the last year and a half feel about this New York Huckster? There was an obvious distaste for him from the first time he opened his mouth the other night. Worse, the MSM, usually a strong propaganda arm of the DNC, excoriated his debate performance. Result: Democrats lose in November.

The second scenario: Bernie Sanders wins and gets the nomination on the first ballot at the Convention. There is a robust Socialist base in the Party, but convincing a populace that is center-right and center-left, for the most part, to vote for the type of garbage he is peddling is not going to happen. Result: Democrats Lose.

The third scenario: No one wins enough delegates to win the nomination, and they head into a brokered convention. Nothing worse could happen to the Democratic chances than this. Party elites and insiders would then pick the party nominee. Then all the campaigning, all the primaries and caucuses, all the debates would be meaningless. 
No one disputes that the Democrats need a large turnout to beat Donald Trump. A simple hatred of Trump will not be enough. If the democrats are going to get people out to the polls this election day, they will have to put forward someone who can convince voters to vote FOR them and not merely against Trump.
