I hope you are sitting down because it appears that Senator Chuck Schumer (NY-D) has once again demonstrated his hypocrisy, demonstrating by actions and words that he will and continues to take positions, not out of any sort of principled conviction, but because he believes they will grant him political gain.
Schumer has been an outspoken and vocal critic of President Donald Trump, as he has hammered the president on alleged ties to Russia and the “election hacking” scandal. Never one to suffer fools, President Trump also routinely calls Schumer out publically via Twitter as he is prone to do.
In March 2017, President Trump called for “an immediate investigation” into Schumer due to HIS ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling him a “hypocrite” due to a picture of Putin and Schumer surfaced from 2003 published in the Associated Press.

Schumer is currently responding to the recent political stunt pulled by Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, with regard to the 12 indicted Russian intelligence operatives. Schumer demands that President Trump demand that President Putin “hand over” the 12 Russians in question.
.@realdonaldtrump, today my colleagues and I are officially calling on you to demand President Putin hand over the 12 indicted Russian intelligence operatives that interfered in the 2016 election. https://t.co/r8suBCKMxu

Yet there are significant questions regarding the indictment as investigative journalist Paul Sperry notes, “Another strange Russia indictment by Mueller: no arrests, no American co-conspirators,no seizure of servers or property, no raids & no sourcing–no informants or witnesses named,nothing attributed to intercepts. In fact,none of the findings is attributed–not even to an FBI agent”

He continued – “Did Mueller leave out the sourcing for his evidence in Russia “hacking” indictment because its merely CrowdStrike, the Democrat cybersecurity shop? Did CrowdStrike supplement the forensics in the absence of the DNC server FBI and Mueller never seized so Quantico could examine it?”

Schumer has also launched a campaign to block the nomination of President Trump’s most recent Supreme Court appointment Brett Kavanaugh. Kavanagh has been chosen to take the place of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Schumer tweeted his opposition just after the announcement of Kavanaugh’s appointment had been made, stating – “I will oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have, and I hope a bipartisan majority will do the same. The stakes are simply too high for anything less.”

Yet during the prior administration, Schumer spoke out against what he termed as “obstructionist behavior” of Republican senators’ plans to filibuster former President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court pick to replaced deceased Justice Antonin Scalia.
Speaking to ABC’s This Week, Schumer stated virtually the opposite of what he is stating regarding the confirmation of Kavanaugh. Schumer stated – “Well, the job, first and foremost, is for the president to nominate and for the Senate to hold hearings and go through the process. You know, the Constitution, Ted Cruz holds the Constitution, you know, when he walks through the halls of Congress. Let him show me the clause that says president’s only president for three years…Here, he doesn’t even know who the president’s going to propose and he said, no, we’re not having hearings; we’re not going to go forward to lead the Supreme Court vacant at 300 days in a divided time…This kind of obstructionism isn’t going to last. And you know, we Democrats didn’t do this. When in the — we nominated — we voted 97-0 for Justice Kennedy in the last year of Reagan’s term.”
For the record, Schumer’s last statement is highly misleading in that the only reason Kennedy was nominated in the last year of Reagan’s term was that Senate Democrats blocked and voted down his first two choices the year prior.
Schumer also took a similar stance to his current stance on Kavanaugh nine years ago. At that time, he went out of his way to make sure the George W. Bush administration knew of his plans to filibuster any Supreme Court nominee they put forth of the next two years because the ideologies of the prior nominees did not align with his own.
In a speech given on July 27, 2007, Schumer stated – “We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court except in extraordinary circumstances. They must prove by actions, not words that they are in the mainstream rather than we have to prove that they are not.”
Senator Chuck Schumer calls flight attendant who told him to turn off cell phone ‘bitch’ https://t.co/n5tg6rdbJ0 Where is the outrage? Calling a women doing her job a Bitch! Where is all the Feminist outrage? You all drag stuff up from 20 years ago, this was only 9
— Eddie (@JN31621) July 13, 2018
Apparently, Schumer objected to a 300-day delay in appointing a Justice, was perfectly fine filibustering a Supreme Court nominee for 543 days?
Yet, not only is Schumer a hypocrite, he also believes the rules simply do not apply to him. Schumer was flying with his political protégé, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on a US Airways flight from LaGuardia Airport to Washington.
Both Schumer and Gillibrand were talking on their cellphones while the plane was boarding and continued to do even after the plane’s captain made the announcement for passengers to turn them off. The two Senators simply ignored the announcement and continued to talk on their phones. This prompted a flight attendant to politely ask the two Senators to simply follow the Federal Aviation Administration rules and simply turn their phones off as all the other passengers on the plane had already done.
According to a House Republican aide who was also on the flight and seated nearby, Schumer demanded to finish his call. The flight attendant told him “No” because the entire plane was waiting on him to shut his phone off in accordance with FAA regulations so they could take off. He was holding up the entire flight.
Schumer then ended the call, but promptly began to rage at the flight attendant proclaiming he was entitled to continue his phone conversation until the cabin door was closed.
Priceless! @VicciTrue US Airways flight attendant told Chuck Schumer she doesn’t make the rules, she just followed them..
— Paul Baldovin (@PaulBaldovin) February 2, 2017
The aide then responded to Schumer’s ridiculous antics, stating – “She said she doesn’t make the rules, she just followed them.” As she walked away, Schumer was heard muttering, “Bitch!”
Rather than being embarrassed for Schumer’s sanctimonious and pretentious outburst, Gillibrand attempted to cover for Schumer. She initially claimed the senior senator was “polite” and that “he turned off his phone when asked to.”
Once the story of the true version of events was made public, circulating the news – Gillibrand’s office made a second statement with a correction.
Brian Fallon, a spokesman for Schumer, said later that “[t]he senator made an off-the-cuff comment under his breath that he shouldn’t have made, and he regrets it.”
Gillibrand’s aide, Glen Caplin, said – “Chuck did the right thing by apologizing.”
The flight attendant accepted his apology but also stated Schumer has a reputation that precedes him – “He is NOT nice!”
After the incident Schumer was very critical and extremely vocal, condemning Republicans for “trying to score cheap political points” from the incident. Yet as evidenced by Schumer’s own words and actions that this seems to be HIS issue, not that of a flight attendant, or Supreme Court Justice nominee, the Russians, or President Trump.
Schumer is too busy playing political games and pandering to this or that special interest group, as well as adding commas and zeros to his own personal bank accounts than he is in effectively serving the people that elected him to Washinton. Schumer, your hypocrisy is showing again, you might want to tuck that back in!

Cher’s Moment Of Lucidity: ‘CA Can’t Take Care Of Its Own Let Alone Thousands Of Illegals’
Cher has said many outrageous comments in the past… most have to do with Trump-hatred while drinking. In a hell-has-frozen-over moment, Cher said over the weekend that Los Angeles, California, “can’t take care of its own” residents, much less newly arrived illegal and legal immigrants. Wow… did she just become a Republican? She’s right of course but hearing it from someone like Cher is mind-blowing.
She’s not alone in wondering how California, who is a flat broke sanctuary state, is able to admit and take care of thousands of illegal immigrants when they can’t even handle their own rising rates of homeless, veterans, and poverty-stricken Americans. This isn’t something you ‘tax’ your way out of.
“I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants, but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN. WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS.PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE,& HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own(Many Are VETS)How Can it Take Care Of More,” Cher stated.
Now, let’s have some perspective here before we embrace the likes of Cher. She had this revelation after President Trump threatened to release thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens into sanctuary cities and states, like California unless the country’s asylum laws are changed. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that the White House is considering the plan. That certainly includes Cher’s beloved Los Angeles. She’s all for open borders until it really impinges on her real estate… then she suddenly sees the light.

“In response, Democrat mayors across the country — like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf — have welcomed bringing illegal aliens and border crossers to their cities.
“While left-wing mayors say they will continue to admit any and all illegal and legal immigrants, Los Angeles is home to the second largest homeless population in the country, second to only New York City. About 50,000 residents of Los Angeles are homeless and about 7.5 percent of California’s American Veteran population is homeless.
“As the city remains crippled by homelessness and skyrocketing housing costs, Los Angeles metro area is also home to the second largest illegal alien population — with nearly a million illegal aliens living in the region, according to Pew Research Center.
“Last year, economists at Deakin University found that immigration — both illegal and legal — drives up housing prices on average, with the researchers writing “we find no evidence that house prices sink as a result of immigration.”’

Cher’s latest stance is a 180-degree reversal from a September 2017 tweet, when she offered to “take a dreamer” into her home and business. “Those Who Can Must Take a DREAMER In2 Their Home & Protect Them,” she wrote. “I’m Ready 2 Do This & Others in MY BUSINESS WILL DO THE SAME. SANCTUARY.” The woman is a shameless hypocrite.
Michael Knowles savored the irony of Cher’s about-face on Twitter: “I’ll never forget where I was and what I was doing the moment Cher became a Republican.” There were many, many others struck by Cher’s new conservatism… shallow as it may be. After Cher’s freak-out over more illegal aliens coming to her sanctuary city, President Trump hit a home run: “I finally agree with Cher!”
WILL TRUMP”REALLY”DO WHAT HE JUST SAID HE WOULD⁉️WILL HE FLOOD MY STATE WITH THOUSANDS OF”RAPISTS,&
MURDERS”(His Words)AS A PUNISHMENT⁉️WHAT KIND OF PRESIDENT IS HE⁉️WHAT KIND OF MAN IS HE⁉️HE’S THE 🌎’s NEWEST DICTATOR,& He Wants HIS Troops 2 Put Up internment Camps.

Donald Trump Jr. nailed Cher over her words on Instagram: “Welcome to the Republican Party Cher!!! 🤣 These Hollywood liberals have some balls. They advocate for these insane leftist policies and open borders when they can stick the burden on you, on your towns, your schools, and your hospitals but if it starts to effect them all of a sudden they’re not so thrilled at the inflow of illegals. What hypocrisy. Remember Libs you wanted them. We offers to give them all to you. What’s the issue? Iits like #thegreennewdeal you want it, you think it’s great, anyone who opposes it is terrible… but then Republicans want you to vote on it and you’re outraged that they would let you vote on your incredible plan. At the vote there are no yeas. Just stop being so full of crap. Everyone knows we have a hard enough time making things work for Americans. We can’t dilute American’s benefits and all of our systems so as to care for millions from all over the world. We need immigration, but how about some immigrants who come here based on merit? What the problem with that? Maybe they won’t be dependent on government and have to vote for you?Anything other than a merit system will further greatly strain actual Americans and make their lives much harder. Stop the bullshit and let’s use some common sense for once. #BuildTheWall #maga”

It appears that Cher wants to be a true liberal only when current events don’t affect her. Previously she has called for Dems to allow Trump to have funding for the wall. Now, this. But she just can’t get past her deep-seated hatred of President Trump to come out all the way and say this insane and suicidal illegal immigration must stop. Well, maybe as Cloward and Piven works against those who instituted it, we will see the collapse of these socialist enclaves. Stars such as Cher will have to sleep in the proverbial beds they have made. That would be true justice. #WeBuildTheWall
Your city is run by Democrats who don’t believe in Americans First. See your @MayorOfLA for example. He helped set up a $10M fund to provide assistance to illegal immigrants facing deportation. Did he set up a $10M fund for homeless Americans/Veterans too? https://t.co/MnXTsUsWYy https://t.co/aOlJRo3edq

MAJOR VICTORY: Colorado Drops 2nd Case Against Christian Baker After Continuous LGBT Harassment
Jack Phillips is a Christian cake artist who has found himself in hot water in Colorado over the last several years. He refused to do a cake that violated his religious beliefs and that’s when the trouble started for him. The issue worked its way once to the Supreme Court where he won but was in the process of making its way to the high court once more. Colorado has now decided to drop the case in a major victory for Christians.
After facing years of constant persecution for his religious beliefs, Phillips can now rest easy and get back to doing what he loves. The LGBT activists and the Colorado Civil Rights Commission can take a hike. The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a Christian nonprofit that advocates for religious freedom and traditional values, announced Tuesday that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission “will dismiss its most recent charges against cake artist Jack Phillips in the wake of newly discovered evidence of the state’s ongoing hostility toward religious freedom.”
In the first go-around, Phillips prevailed at the Supreme Court in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. He was originally targeted for refusing to do a transgender celebration cake due to his religious beliefs concerning sex and gender.
From the ADF:
“On June 26, 2017, the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, an attorney asked cake artist Jack Phillips to create a cake designed pink on the inside and blue on the outside, which the attorney said was to celebrate a gender transition from male to female. Phillips declined the request because the custom cake would have expressed messages about sex and gender identity that conflict with his religious beliefs. Less than a month after the Supreme Court ruled for Phillips in his first case, the state surprised him by finding probable cause to believe that Colorado law requires him to create the requested gender-transition cake.”
In response to renewed harassment against Phillips, the ADF filed Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Elenis:
“We’re pleased that the state will be dismissing its case against Jack,” said ADF attorney Kristen Waggoner, who represented Phillips in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission in the first precedent-setting case. “This is the second time the state has launched a failed effort to prosecute him. While it finally appears to be getting the message that its anti-religious hostility has no place in our country, the state’s decision to target Jack has cost him more than six-and-a-half years of his life, forcing him to spend that time tied up in legal proceedings.”
“Jack’s victory is great news for everyone. Tolerance and respect for good-faith differences of opinion are essential in a diverse society like ours. They enable us to peacefully coexist with each other. But the state’s demonstrated and ongoing hostility toward Jack because of his beliefs is undeniable,” noted Waggoner.”
This has been a hot topic in conservative and Christian politics. Daily Wire writer and podcast host Matt Walsh rightfully torched “vengeful bullies of the LGBT lobby” for continuously targeting Phillips.
“This is straightforward persecution,” stated Walsh. “This is a government agency seeking to destroy a private citizen for his personal beliefs. The bureaucrats behind this campaign have now officially forfeited the claim that they are really seeking equality or tolerance or whatever. They know, like we all do, that Phillips was railroaded here. There aren’t even any hurt feelings for them to worry about. Scardina’s feelings weren’t hurt. He got exactly what he wanted, which was to not get what he asked for. He’s a conniving, scheming fraud. And so are the despots in the commission. No matter your ideological leanings, you should be outraged about this.”
Walsh is absolutely right here. Constitutional rights apply to all Americans including Christians. That Colorado commission should be disbanded and reformed after persecuting Phillips the way they did. They tried to bully a Christian into violating his faith… something they would never do to other religions. Today is a great victory for those of the Christian faith in Colorado and the righting of an egregious wrong.
