There are a lot of really terrible and frankly laughable politicians out there. Somewhere near the top of that list is Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Far be it from Gillibrand to pass up an opportunity to make herself a national laughing stock.
Her golden opportunity to do just that presented itself over the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser of sexual misconduct 36 years ago, Christine Blasey Ford, coming forward. Here’s a hot tip to Gillibrand, if you are going to spout nutball nonsense, you shouldn’t appear on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News.
Gillibrand discredited herself in ten seconds flat in front of Carlson by saying she knows Kavanaugh is guilty of attempted rape because he hasn’t called for an FBI investigation into himself. Excuse me? That’s simply bananas. Tucker Carlson proceeded to shred her on that terrifying precedent.
From The Daily Wire:
“New York Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand made a fool out of herself on Thursday after she attacked Republicans for doing the same thing she has done regarding the allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“Appearing on CNN’s “The Situation Room” with Jim Acosta, Gillibrand said that she believes Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.
“And so I believe her,” Gillibrand said. “I stand with her.”
“Less than ten seconds later, Gillibrand was complaining that her Republican counterparts had “already made up their minds” about whether they believed Kavanaugh’s accuser “without the benefit of an FBI investigation” — which is the same exact thing Gillibrand did.”
Alrighty then… this woman should give lessons on how to destroy yourself live in front of millions in one easy step… open mouth and lose all credibility. Simply jaw-dropping. It would be funny as all get out if the left wasn’t actively moving forward with this insanity to destroy Kavanaugh and in unison the Republicans allowing it to continue.
One might ask themselves exactly what is wrong with Gillibrand. That list is too long to go into here, but I think you get a feel for it right here. Unsurprisingly, Gillibrand is a die-hard Clinton loyalist. She had no problem with Bill dilly-dallying for real, but she has a real issue with an innocent Republican man with a spotless reputation who is being maligned by a woman who has the credibility of swiss cheese.
This whole circus is shameful and transparently obstructionist. The Democrats want to delay confirmation as long as they can here, if not permanently.
From Fox News Insider:
“Tucker Carlson blasted Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand over her “circular reasoning” for why Judge Brett Kavanaugh is allegedly guilty of a 1982 sexual assault, and the Democrat’s hypocrisy on the matter.
“Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said at a press conference that “I believe [accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford] because she’s telling the truth. She’s asking for the FBI to investigate her claims.”
“Carlson said Gillibrand’s remarks are an example that political discourse has “metastasized into something ugly and something threatening to all of us.”
“He said he is not litigating the validity of Ford’s claim, but rather the way people like Gillibrand are using it.
“Carlson asked the audience to recognize the “pure demagoguery of the moment” involving Gillibrand.
“He said that her ‘I believe her because she’s telling the truth’ is an example of “circular reasoning — [a] demand you believe something because someone else is asserting it.”
“Children talk this way, you’d think as a U.S. Senator, [Gillibrand] would be embarrassed to,” he said.”
The fundamental questions we must answer right now:
Do we value women?
Do we believe women?
Do we give them the opportunity to tell their story? To be heard?
Will we ensure they get the justice they deserve?
We must fight to be a country that answers, “Yes,” every time.

At a press conference this past week, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said the Brett Kavanaugh allegation hearing was being rushed by the Senate Judiciary Committee, and that it wasn’t being afforded even the same basic due process that Anita Hill’s allegation was in 1991.
Gillibrand also noted that the Senate Judicial Committee is also refusing any witness testimonials during the hearing, including those from Christine Ford’s husband, therapist, and Kavanaugh’s high school classmate, Mark Judge. As she grew increasingly desperate, Gillibrand asked the American people to consider one question: “What are they afraid of?” Nothing senator… they just want the truth here and a smidgen of sanity.
Ford’s accusation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her 36 years ago actually fell apart late Saturday when the final witness Ford identified failed to back her story. In a Saturday evening email, an attorney representing Ford’s former classmate, Leland Ingham Keyser, stated that his client “does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without Dr. Ford.”
Keyser is now the fourth person to refute Ford’s story. Kavanaugh still insists he never did what he is being accused of. Mark Judge, a friend and Georgetown Preparatory classmate of Kavanaugh, refuted Ford’s claim in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, writing “I have no memory of this alleged incident.”
“Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described” by Ford, Judge continued. He ended his statement by stressing that, while he did not remember the supposed party, he “never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes.”
Patrick J. Smyth, a fellow 1983 grad of the North Bethesda, Maryland all-boys school, came forward to respond to Ford’s charge as well. In a statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Smyth said he wrote: “to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.”
Smyth then added: “Personally speaking, I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh towards women.”
Gillibrand’s insistence on Kavanaugh calling in the FBI on himself is moronic. Her blind support of a woman who can’t recall the year it happened, where it happened, when it happened, who hosted the party, who was there, who brought her or who took her home is lemming-like. None of those Ford claims were involved back up her story either. Gillibrand not only made a fool of herself… she is a fool period.

Pelosi: ‘I Didn’t Know What Ilhan Omar Said When I Defended Her 9/11 Remarks’
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) did a major backpedal today when she admitted she didn’t know the content of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) recent remarks about 9/11. That didn’t stop her from defending Omar to the hilt in the wake of criticism from President Donald Trump. Pelosi gave an interview to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour where she rejected charges of anti-Semitism against Omar and pushed back against criticism that the Democrat Party isn’t doing enough to combat it.
“I don’t think the congresswoman is anti-Semitic. I wouldn’t even put those in the same category,” Pelosi told Amanpour in Ireland. “We have no taint of that [anti-Semitism],” she added. “And just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn’t mean that we take that bait.” No one is making accusations… it’s all out in the open for everyone to see. This woman is delusional.
Then Pelosi went on to dismiss criticisms that she hasn’t done enough to defend Omar, conceding, “Until I talk to somebody, I don’t even know what was said.” Really? You didn’t take the time to even find out? “I do know that what the president did was not right,” she added. But not Omar. Trump did nothing wrong. In fact, he did the right thing in saying we should never forget 9/11 while Omar insulted all Americans by her “some people did something” slur.
“Omar is facing blowback for downplaying the September 11, 2001, terror attack, describing it last month private fundraiser for Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as a day on which “some people did something,” before adding “and that all of us were starting to lose our civil liberties.”
“In reaction to the Minnesota Democrat’s remarks, President Trump shared a video to social media of Omar’s remarks and scenes of the World Trade Center engulfed in flakes shortly after it was attacked by radical Islamic terrorists. The video’s caption reads: “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”
“She’s got a way about her that’s very, very bad, I think, for our country. I think she’s extremely unpatriotic and extremely disrespectful to our country,” the president said at an event in Minnesota on Monday.
“Several Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and 2020 Democrat candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, said President Trump was inciting violence against Omar by tweeting the clip. In a statement Saturday, Pelosi demanded the president remove the video and said Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Omar amid a growing number of death threats.
“Following the President’s tweet, I spoke with the Sergeant-at-Arms to ensure that Capitol Police are conducting a security assessment to safeguard Congresswoman Omar, her family, and her staff. They will continue to monitor and address the threats she faces,” Pelosi said.
“The President’s words weigh a ton, and his hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger. President Trump must take down his disrespectful and dangerous video,” she added.”

This knee-jerk defense of someone simply because they are in your political party is hypocritical and just wrong. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scolded Trump for using the “painful images of 9/11 for a political attack” against the first-term Minnesota Democrat. So, pretend it did not happen when a leftist such as Omar intimates there were no terrorists involved and just brushes off nearly 3,000 deaths? I don’t think so.
From Fox News:
“Many Republicans and conservative outlets expressed outrage at Omar’s remarks. Fellow Democrats, including some who have disagreed with Omar in the past, defended her.
“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,'” tweeted Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas. The retired Navy SEAL lost his right eye in 2012 in an explosion in Afghanistan.
“Here’s your something,” the New York Post blared on its cover beneath a photograph of the flaming towers.”
“Several of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates condemned Trump’s tweet.
“Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, said the Republican president’s tweet was an “incitement to violence” against Omar, who is Muslim-American, and others like her. O’Rourke, campaigning in South Carolina, likened the tweet to Trump’s rhetoric about Mexicans, described in the past by Trump as murderers and rapists. O’Rourke said “there is a cost and there is a consequence” to Trump’s comments.
“Warren, a Massachusetts senator, said Republican leaders in Congress “cannot take a pass on this, cannot look the other way and pretend it isn’t happening. It is happening. And those who don’t speak out in the Republican leadership are complicit in what he is doing. It’s wrong.”
“Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar noted that a New York man recently was charged with threatening Omar’s life.
“The video the president chose to send out today will only incite more hate,” Klobuchar said. “You can disagree with her words — as I have done before — but this video is wrong. Enough.”
“Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont said Omar “won’t back down to Trump’s racism and hate, and neither will we.”‘
What a bunch of anti-American schmucks. As for Pelosi, I think she knew exactly what Omar said and what she meant. She’s trying to straddle a fence here and is going to wind up impaled on it. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving feckless Marxist.

In First Year Bernie Made Over $1 Million He Donated Less Than 1% To Charity
Vermont Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders had the utter gall to go on Fox News to show off that he had released ten years of tax returns and to demand that President Trump do the same. Bolshevik Bernie is one socialist who has become a millionaire thanks to American capitalism but he doesn’t want the masses to prosper the way he did. His answer to all of this is a so-called 52 percent ‘wealth tax’.
As for charity, Sanders is lousy at it as most Democrats and leftists are. Sanders earned an average of $280,975 per year from 2009 through 2015. His income skyrocketed to $1,062,626 in 2016 due to sales of his best-selling book, “Our Revolution.” Ironic, no? He gave just $10,600 in charitable contributions in 2016, making up slightly less than one percent of his reported income and falling under the $21,365 average charitable contribution for Americans who earned $250,000 or more that year, according to the latest available IRS data.
The self-avowed Democratic-socialist purchased his third home in 2016. It is a $575,000 lake-front property in Vermont, according to Fox News. He’s also got a penchant for racy cars. Bernie’s an ‘elite’ socialist don’t ya know. During his 2016 presidential campaign and beyond, Sanders declared that wealth inequality was “the great moral issue of our time.” What a hypocrite.
The following year, Sanders donated $36,300 of his adjusted gross income of $1,131,925 to charity. That’s still a pittance. Behold the benefits of being a Democratic Socialist with no morals or ethics.
The filings showed that Sanders has been among the top 1 percent of earners in the U.S. According to the liberal-leaning Economic Policy Institute. Families in the U.S. earning $421,926 or more a year are part of this group.
From The Daily Caller:
“From 2009 through 2015, when Sanders was earning on average $280,975 per year, he contributed 2.06 percent to charity.
“His charitable giving rose slightly to 2.39 percent of his income from 2016 through 2018, when his average income soared to $918,615 per year.
“My wife and I do give money to charity, and we’re proud to do what we did,” Sanders said at a Fox News town hall Monday.
“A campaign spokesperson for Sanders said in a statement to the Daily Beast that while the senator believes voluntary charitable donations are commendable, they can’t make up government investment in social programs, which his platform calls for.
“Over the last decade, Bernie and Jane Sanders have donated more than $100,000 to charity. Their overall charitable giving rates have been roughly in line with the average rates in America as a whole,” Sanders’s campaign spokeswoman Arianna Jones said.
“In some years, they gave more than 3 or 4 percent of their income to charity. They have given to senior centers, low-income organizations, educational entities, and environmental and housing advocacy groups. They also believe that while voluntary charitable donations are commendable, they can never replace ongoing public investments in major social programs and services that improve people’s lives.”’
Sanders really meant what he said in 1981 when he told attendees at a local United Way fundraiser in Vermont, “I don’t believe in charities.” Sanders, then serving as mayor of Burlington, “went on to question the ‘fundamental concepts on which charities are based’ and contended that government, rather than charity organizations, should take over responsibility for social programs,” according to the New York Times.
Leftists like Sanders knocked Trump for charitable giving and he gave many times over what Sanders donated. Socialism is inherently anti-charity. It’s anti-job and anti-freedom. Charity is a form of love for your fellow man. Not something socialists are known for.
