Oh Look – Kamala Harris – Another Democrat Liar

from Daily Wire:

Kamala Harris Says She Listened To Tupac And Snoop While Smoking Weed In College. There’s Just One Problem.

Did Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) smoke marijuana in college, or while she was arresting people for minor drug offenses?

Sen. Kamala Harris’ Acknowledgement of Pot Use Is ‘Huge Step’: Cannabis Advocate
That was the question circulating social media Monday evening, after Harris said she smoked a “joint” in college during an interview with the radio show, “The Breakfast Club.” Co-host “Charlemagne tha God” asked Harris if she had ever smoked marijuana, to which the California senator replied: “I have.” read more

30th Anniversary Mazda MX-5 Miata

Mazda unveiled the MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary in Chicago

Mazda originally debuted the MX-5 Miata at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, so it’s only fitting that the Japanese automaker has chosen to celebrate the 30th anniversary of that car by making the world premiere of the MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary in Chicago. Only 3,000 examples will be built, but if you’re in the US, you’re already too late to claim one. read more

Joke of the Day

A young man wants to ask a young woman to prom and he really likes her so he goes all out.

He goes to the florist to buy some flowers, but the line is out the door. He thinks, “That’s okay, she’s worth it,” and waits an hour in the flower line.

Next he goes to the candy store to get some really nice chocolates and again, the line is absurdly long. Again he thinks, “That’s okay, I’ll wait,” and waits an hour in the chocolate line. read more

Chris Wallace’s anti-Trump Bias

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Last Week, acting Attorney General Andrew Whitaker was on Capital Hill in front of the House Judiciary panel. He was testifying about pretty much nothing.

As it usually is, this panel was convened in public and on camera as a show. It was reality TV and should be treated by any reasonable American with the same reverence as an episode of Real Housewives.

But that’s what the Democrats said they would do if they took control of the House. And they are as good, or bad, as their word. This was no surprise.

The dems’ goal is to now make life for the President and his administration as miserable as they can. And that’s a shame. For the next two years they will abuse their oversight authority for that sole purpose. This was fully expected for a Party, stuck in the past, still trying to come to grips with the 2016 presidential loss. read more

WND Exclusive – Dem’s New Ammo Tax to Result in More Deaths?

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily: 

Don’t ever let anyone convince you that all Democrats are complete fiscal or economic ignoramuses. It may just seem that way listening to the new darling of the radical left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

For sure, there appear to be some economic principles that just escape them, like the impact of Medicare-for-All, but at least some Democrats understand basic tax policy and the effects of taxation. At least some understand that if you want more of something, tax it less, and if you want less, tax it more.

Take, for example, Connecticut Democratic state Rep. Jillian Gilchrest’s new ammunition tax proposal. She wants to increase the state ammunition tax to 50 percent. Currently, ammo is taxed at the same rate as every other consumer good, and that just won’t do. read more

Video Podcast – A Border Cable – Green is the New Red Deal

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A Texas Republican Congressman, Will Hurd, has an idea to run fiber optic cable from one end of the country to the other, under ground, to detect people crossing our border illegally. This is in lieu of, or instead of a border wall.

Great plan. The cable won’t stop anyone from crossing, but will simply alert border patrol that someone, or group of someones has.

The “Green New Deal” that AOC and others have proposed is nothing more than a new communist manifesto. It’s not Democratic or any other kind of socialism. It’s straight-up communism. And what does their economic program have to do with global warming? Absolutely nothing. read more

Joke of the Day

A husband walks into Victoria’s Secret to purchase a sheer negligee for his wife. He is shown several possibilities that range from $250 to $500 in price … the sheerer, the higher the price.

Naturally, he opts for the sheerest item, pays the $500 and takes it home. He presents it to his wife and asks her to go upstairs, put it on and model it for him. read more

The Death Of Three Equal Branches

SCOTUS’ Louisiana decision takes Roberts’ power play to a new level of aggression against the Constitution

Will the perfidy of Chief Justice John Roberts finally help conservatives slay their false idol of “appointing better judges” and actually fight against the entire notion of judicial supremacy instead?

I take no pride in seeing my thesis on the judiciary being proven correct every week, but once again we see that once we regard even lower courts as supreme to other branches on purely political questions, then simply “appointing better Supreme Court justices” will not matter. Much like drinking coffee with a fork, the more we accede to judicial supremacy, only using all our capital to get “our guys” on the high tribunal, the more we lose more of the existing members to the system. John Roberts has long ago become the new Anthony Kennedy, a fact that is now becoming obvious even to conservative court-worshippers. read more
