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.

Kamala Harris Literally SPEECHLESS When Reporter Asks About Jussie Smollett Hoax – WATCH
Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris claimed the now-debunked attack on ‘Empire’ actor Jussie Smollett was a modern-day lynching. “JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery. This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.” She had no evidence and now that it has been exposed as a hoax, Harris has nothing to say. Go figure.
When confronted over the hoax out of Chicago, Harris was literally dumbstruck and could not answer reporters over it. Smollett hired two Nigerian brothers and paid them $3500 at the time, promising $500 more when they got home to Nigeria, to stage a fake hate crime after an alleged racist letter Smollett received didn’t get enough attention. Upon hearing about the alleged hate crime, Harris accepted it at face-value despite the obvious holes in Smollett’s initial story.
Evidence has been uncovered from the hardware store where rope and bleach were purchased by the brothers who were acquaintances of Smollett’s. When confronted by a reporter on Monday asking her if her opinions regarding the Smollett incident have changed in light of the new evidence, Kamala Harris struggled to utter a phrase before side-stepping the issue. “Which tweet? What tweet?” Harris asked as the reporter questioned her about the “modern-day lynching” comment. Nice… that’s Politics 101 for corruptocrats.
“Um … I … I … Okay, so I will say this about that case, the facts are still unfolding, and, um, I’m very, um, concerned about obviously, the initial, um, allegation that he made about what might have happened,” she said. “And it’s something we should all take seriously whenever anyone, um, alleges that kind of behavior, but there should be an investigation. And I think that once the investigation has concluded then we can all comment, but I’m not going to comment until I know the outcome of the investigation.” Say what? Wow… that was simply unintelligible.
.@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.
This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.

Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman for the Republican National Committee, roundly criticized Harris for seemingly not remembering her being quick to blame Trump supporters for the Jussie Smollett attack. Harris has a convenient memory. “Kamala Harris had no problem using inflammatory rhetoric to tie the #JussieSmollettHoax to @realDonaldTrump & his supporters,” tweeted McDaniel. “Now that she has the facts, why can’t she even remember her divisive language? Why is she giggling about it?”
Harris has not even deleted her tweet in support of Smollett as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did. The California senator’s deflection reflects that of Cory Booker. He told people to withhold judgment until more facts came out. “The information is still coming out. I’m going to withhold until all the information actually comes out from on the record sources,” Booker said over the weekend. He just took Smollett’s claims at face value with no evidence as Harris did.
“The vicious attack on actor Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching. I’m glad he’s safe,” Booker tweeted in response to the attack. “To those in Congress who don’t feel the urgency to pass our Anti-Lynching bill designating lynching as a federal hate crime– I urge you to pay attention.”
.@KamalaHarris's face and pause when asked about her previous tweet that the attack on Jussie Smollett was a "modern-day lynching" is something to behold

I think we’ve seen enough facts to know the whole thing is yet another leftist hoax. We don’t need to wait any longer on this incident – it is not aging well for the left. The Chicago police are no longer looking at Smollett as a victim here.
From Fox News:
“Smollett, who is black and openly gay, claimed he was assaulted by two men who yelled racist and anti-gay slurs– as well as the phrase “This is MAGA country!” — as Smollett was walking to his Chicago apartment. Chicago police arrested and questioned two Nigerian brothers in the alleged attack, but released them on Friday without charges. Investigators said they’ve requested a follow-up interview with Smollett, but the actor’s representatives said there have been no plans to meet with police for the time being.”
Now that she has the facts, why can't she even remember her divisive language? Why is she giggling about it? pic.twitter.com/imY8lxm89m

You know it’s funny… Harris and Booker never call for due process when accusing the right. But now they’re all for it because it’s one of their own. How hypocritical can you get?
For instance, during the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, they immediately believed Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation of sexual assault against the judge without a shred of evidence or a corroborative witness. And despite evidence vindicating Kavanaugh, they smeared him night and day. After all, he’s not a Hollywood celebrity or anointed by the left. I guess that makes all of this okay.

HA Ha! McConnell To Call Vote On Ocasio’s Green New Deal, Schumer’s PISSED
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who on a good day looks like he’s sucking on a lemon, ripped into Republicans for planning to force a vote on the Green New Deal. They want everyone on record concerning where they stand for this insanity. Schumer doesn’t want the Dems pinned down and he’s really ticked at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for calling the vote. McConnell is trolling the Dems and I love it.
Schumer called the plan a “stunt,” a “cheap, cynical ploy” and “a game of political gotcha.” Considering Schumer wrote the proverbial book on dirty politics, he should know. Actually, it is a valid move to make politicians say they are either for or against the Green New Deal. “The Republican leader announced he’s going to bring up a resolution he intends to vote against,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. “Now that is what the American people hate about Congress — the pointless partisan games.” No sir… they hate the corrupt leftists tearing us apart.
Dear @SenateMajLdr McConnell:
Stop trying to distract from the fact that the GOP has no plan on climate change.
I'm headed to the Senate Floor to issue you a challenge to admit for the first time:
1. Climate change is real
2. It's caused by humans
3. Congress needs to act
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) February 14, 2019
Schumer isn’t the only Democrat calling foul here. They are terrified of being tied to a plan that would literally destroy the US and everything we hold dear. But most of the Democratic field running for the presidency in 2020 has already rallied behind the deal. Even so, Schumer, joined by colleagues on the Senate floor, said: “Bring it on.” He said Democrats “believe that we need to do something about climate change” and added: “Do Republicans?” Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with climate change and everything to do with greed, graft, and corruption.
McConnell promised a Senate vote on the Green New Deal last week. He wants Democrats to go on record. Nice tee-up for the 2020 race and reelecting Trump. “I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell told reporters. “And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. We’ll give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.”
The Green New Deal was put forth by Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She wants to transform our economy and way of life in an attempt to fight faux climate change. It recently came under scrutiny after revelations that a related FAQ document included passages promising a job to “all people of the United States” – including those “unwilling to work” – and suggesting air travel could be made obsolete. And don’t even get me started on eliminating cow farts.
“We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast,” the now-deleted document also read. Then Ocasio-Cortez and her minions tried to claim that the doc was concocted by Republicans. She lied her ever-loving head off.
From Fox News:
“But McConnell’s move to bring the plan to a vote on the Senate floor will be a key test for Democratic presidential candidates such as Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, who are running on the progressive platform in 2020.
“While backing of the far-left proposal will ultimately improve their liberal bona fides and their support from the Democratic base, the support of the plan will undoubtedly be the target of attacks during the general election.
“President Trump has already begun attacking the Green New Deal, claiming it would “shut down American energy” and describing it as “a high school term paper that got a low mark” during a rally Monday in El Paso, Texas.
“Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, said that McConnell’s plan to bring the plan to the vote will only show “just how out of touch Republican politicians are with the American people.”
“Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass, a co-sponsor of the plan, also decried McConnell’s move.
“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning,” Markey said.”
This is an attempt to wake America up and show them what will happen if the Democrats seize control. Al Gore never went away, he just co-opted the millennials and power-hungry climbers in the Democratic Party.
