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

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!

Male Bartender Suing CNN’s Don Lemon For Sexually Charged Assault In The Hamptons
Don Lemon is being sued by a man who claims the anchor sexually harassed and assaulted him while out at a Hamptons hotspot. Classy. And it is graphic. Written statements indicate it was a filthy, sexually-charged attack on a bartender in New York. That bartender’s name is Dustin Hice, 38.
Dustin was out with his co-workers at Murf’s Backstreet Tavern in Sag Harbor on or around July 15th, 2018, when Lemon allegedly assaulted him, detailing the incident in a complaint that was filed over the weekend in New York Supreme Court for Suffolk County court. Lemon, of course, denies the assault.
Unfortunately for Lemon, Dustin recognized him and did his best at first to get Don’s attention. He wanted to buy him a drink. Lemon, 53, responded to Hice’s offer by declining the drink and telling the young man he was ‘just trying to have a good time’, according to the court filing. Lemon is openly gay and married to another man and you would think that he would just tell the guy that. But not so much.
Things got violent and sketchy later that evening between Hice and Lemon according to court documents. “Sometime later that evening, unexpectedly, Mr. Lemon walked towards Plaintiff and his colleagues inside of Murf’s,” states the complaint. “At such time, Mr. Lemon, who was wearing a pair of shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt, put his hand down the front of his own shorts, and vigorously rubbed his genitalia, removed his hand and shoved his index and middle fingers into Plaintiff’s mustache under Plaintiff’s nose.”
“Mr. Lemon intensely pushed his fingers against Plaintiff’s face under Plaintiff’s nose, forcing Plaintiff’s head to thrust backward as Defendant repeatedly asked Plaintiff “Do you like p***y or d**k?”. While saying this, Mr. Lemon continued to shove his fingers into Plaintiff’s face with aggression and hostility.”
Gross. But wait there’s more…
BREAKING: Man Sues CNN’s Don Lemon for Alleged Assault at Sag Harbor Bar https://t.co/7XFOMD0v1y
— Mediaite (@Mediaite) August 13, 2019
From The Daily Mail:
“That is when Hice ‘fled the bar’ and took five to ten minutes collecting himself before he was able to return inside, having recovered from the incident which he claims left him ‘shocked and humiliated’.
“Lemon was gone by that point, while Hice was left ’emotionally devastated by Mr. Lemon’s demeaning unprovoked and offensive assault’.
“A network rep said: ‘The plaintiff in this lawsuit has previously displayed a pattern of contempt for CNN on his social media accounts.
“‘This claim follows his unsuccessful threats and demands for an exorbitant amount of money from Don Lemon. Don categorically denies these claims and this matter does not merit any further comment at this time.’
“Hice, who was working as a bartender at The Old Stove Pub in Sagaponack at the time of the alleged assault, shut down his Twitter account just before filing his lawsuit.
“The registered Republican, who just two months prior admitted to injuring his then-girlfriend when he hurled his keys at her in a domestic dispute, claims that he ‘found it increasingly more difficult to continue working at The Old Stove or socializing at all in the Hamptons.’
“He also alleged that many at Murf’s would reference the incident when they saw him at the bar.
“‘After the incident, customers who came into The Old Stove or saw Plaintiff out about town cheekily ordered lemon drops and laughed at Plaintiff’s expense,’ wrote Hice’s lawyer.
“‘Plaintiff has suffered tremendously as a result of Mr. Lemon’s actions. Following this incident, Plaintiff found himself withdrawn from friends and family, suffered feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt,’ states the complaint.
“It adds: ‘Plaintiff found himself unable to sleep and at times, and suffered from suicidal ideations.
“‘Although Plaintiff, a religious man, tried to find solace within his faith and the church, to this day he continues to suffer emotionally, mentally, and personally from the incident.’
“He also said that he cannot return to New York to work, something the 38-year-old man had hoped to continue doing for years.
“Hice lists ‘assault and battery and both ‘intentional’ and negligent emotional distress’ as his three causes of action in the case.”
Hice reportedly demanded $1.5 million from Lemon before he filed the lawsuit and is seeking damages for emotional pain and suffering after he claimed that the alleged assault left him with “feelings of shame, humiliation, anxiety, anger, and guilt.”
I have no idea if any of this is true but this is happening at the same time that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is embroiled in his “Fredo” debacle which did happen. A video of CNN’s Chris Cuomo went viral on Tuesday night that showed him threatening to throw a man down a flight of stairs after the man called him “Fredo.”
“I thought that’s who you were,” the man said to Cuomo.
“No, punk-a** b****es from the Right call me Fredo,” Cuomo responded. “My name is Chris Cuomo, I’m an anchor on CNN.”
“Fredo is from ‘The Godfather,’ he was that weak brother and they’re using it as an Italian aspersion,” Cuomo continued. “It’s like the ‘n-word’ for us.”
Cuomo later said, “You’re going to have a f***ing problem.”
The man responded, “What are you going to do about it?”
Cuomo responded: “I’ll f***ing ruin your shit. I’ll f***ing throw you down these stairs like a f***ing punk.”
The video went viral with President Trump weighing in on it, tweeting: “I thought Chris was Fredo also. The truth hurts. Totally lost it! Low ratings @CNN”
When it rains it pours crap at CNN it would seem. So much for professionalism. This is CNN!
VIDEO: Students Sign Petition To Ban White Figure In ‘Walk’ Signals – It’s ‘Oppressive’
Well, we have officially reached ‘peak stupidity’ on campuses. It took some doing to be this moronic but these students are up to the challenge. Campus Reform has a video out where Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai asks students at George Washington University if they’d be willing to sign a petition calling for banning the iconic white stick figure in “walk” signals because they are “oppressive.” Most of the students were more than happy to join the “inclusive” effort. So dumb it hurts.
This is the same university where students voted to “remove and replace” the university’s mascot, George the Colonial, which “is received as extremely offensive not only by students of the University, but the nation and world at large” because it “glorifies the act of systemic oppression,” a petition calling for its removal claimed. The measure was passed in March by 54% of the students who voted. They should not be attending George Washington University then… in fact, they are not fit for higher education at all.
From The Daily Wire:
“In an attempt to test how deep concerns about “offense” and “oppression” go at GW, Campus Reform went undercover to the university to see if students would sign a new petition, this time calling for the banning of white stick figures in walk signals.
“As we students cross the street, we are told by the symbol of a white man when it is okay to cross,” Campus Reform’s faux petition reads. “Many students from diverse backgrounds, including individuals of color, gender fluid individuals, and LGBTQA+ individuals, feel oppressed by this.” Students who sign the petition are supposedly letting the university know that they “vehemently urge the University to consider changing the crosswalk signs.”
“The result: many of the students and even one university faculty member are willing to put their signature on the phony petition. While some students seem to be on board because the alternatives provided by Campus Reform are “so cute” and “lit,” most in the video made a point of saying they can “absolutely” see how someone would be offended by the “white man” telling them what to do and felt that changing the sign helped promote “diversity.”
“One guy pushed back, however, saying he was “ideologically opposed” to the idea. Video below via Campus Reform:
“As for that petition calling for the replacement of George the Colonial, after declaring that the “negatively-charged figure of colonials has too deep a connection to colonization and glorifies the act of systemic oppression,” the students who signed it offered the university some alternatives, including “Hippos,” “Revolutionaries,” or “River horses.”‘
Hippos, y’all. Hippos.
I have never felt in the least oppressed by a white stick figure at a street crossing. Must be my white privilege showing. I have never been paralyzed by bone-chilling fear as a white iconic symbol tells me to get my butt across the street before I get hit by a car. What’s wrong with me? Like RedState says, “We’ve all been there.” Sheesh. Better yet, we can all just cross the street as we’ve always done and not get racist about a digital stick figure. Duh.
Only one student bucked the idea… just one. Bring on Sodom and Gomorrah.
My IQ drops just thinking about this idiocy. How college students devolved into such Marxist troglodytes is a question for the ages… or maybe just for American communists.
