SAD……JUST SAD

.

.

The Kavanaugh confirmation hearings as a whole have represented a new low for Dims, which is saying quite a bit. We’ve seen Cory Booker pretend to have a bombshell document exposing Kavanaugh’s racist views and pretend to break Senate rules in exposing it. We’ve seen Kamala Harris edit videos of Kavanaugh so dishonestly and shamefully that even the failing Washington Post gave her four Pinocchios. We’ve seen hundreds of people arrested, some wearing menstrual blood and all of them there at the invitation of committee Dims. It’s fair to say we’ve become desensitized at this point to whatever the Left has to offer.

But amazingly, they’ve managed to outdo themselves once again.

Senate Dims, led by gun-grabbing Dianne Feinstein, have referred a letter concerning Kavanaugh to the FBI for investigation.

“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further,” Feinstein said today in a press release.

“I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities,” she continued.

So gracious of her to protect the identity of her “anonymous source.”


.

SO WHAT DID KAVANAUGH DO?

.
.

The obvious answer is probably nothing. The more technically accurate answer is we don’t really know, though it is apparently sexual in nature. We’d probably know a lot more if Feinstein weren’t refusing to share the contents of the letter with Republicans.

According to a report published by the online mag The Intercept, the letter was relayed to lawmakers by an individual affiliated with Stanford University. Some sources told the publication that it was about an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman while they were in high school.

The failing New York Times separately reported, citing “two sources familiar with the matter” (probably their leakin’ buddies over at the FBI), that it the incident involved possible sexual misconduct.

AGAIN….FROM HIGH SCHOOL.

BIG PICTURE:

.

Let’s just get to the point here. It’s not like this requires a deep dive analysis.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) summed it up well tonight on Twitter:

“Let me get this straight: this is a statement about a secret letter regarding a secret matter and an unidentified person. Right.”

This is 11th hour desperation from a party that has thoroughly embarrassed itself throughout. One might even call it a fitting ending.

Either way, it’s not stopping the Kavanaugh train on its way to the SCOTUS. Chuck Grassley has scheduled a panel vote on his nomination for Sept. 20 at 1:45 p.m. Because Republicans hold a majority on the panel his nomination will be sent to the full Senate late next week.

.

.
Dims can huff, puff and blow our House (of Representatives) down, but Brett Kavanaugh will soon be our new SCOTUS justice. And thank God, as he seems to be a serious upgrade from the wishy-washy flake he’s replacing, Anthony Kennedy.
.
Try not to let the Dims annoy you too much, folks. Our journey is almost complete here.

A REVELATION EVERYONE KNEW

.

.

Breitbart.com managed to get its hands on a 2016 video showing Google’s leftwing douche canoe executives having a support group meeting to deal with Trump’s election victory. Basically, everything we’ve suspected they say among themselves, we got to see in living color.

In the video, Sergey Brin, Google’s co-founder and president of Alphabet, opens up a company meeting saying, “Most people here are pretty upset and sad because of the election.”

Other heads of Alphabet, which owns Google, were also visibly upset just days after the election.


Of course, that video is the least offensive — or corrupt — thing Google has been up to lately.
.

As I covered this week, Breitbart also stumbled upon an email sent by a Google executive which describes efforts to pay for free rides for Hispanic voters to get to the polls in an effort to elect Crooked Hillary. The woman, Eliana Murillo, also used the term “silent donation” to describe Google’s contribution to the effort to elect Clinton president..

But that pales in comparison to what was revealed regarding Google’s relationship with the tyrannical Chinese government. It’s a relationship so corrupt that the company is seeing some of its best technical resigning in moral protest.

One such talented fellow is Jack Poulson.

Poulson worked for Google’s research and machine intelligence department, where he was focused on improving the accuracy of the company’s search systems. In early August, Poulson raised concerns with his managers at Google after it was revealed that they were secretly developing a Chinese search app for Android devices. The search system, code-named Dragonfly, was designed to remove content that China’s authoritarian government views as sensitive, such as information about political dissidents, free speech, democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest.

Yes, Google has been helping an authoritarian neo-communist government hide information from its citizens. These are the people who are so horrified by Trump’s immorality.

Poulson took up the matter with his bosses to no avail and, to his credit, decided in mid-August that he could no longer work for Google.  

In an interview with (once again) The Intercept, Poulson said that he believes he is one of about five high-level employees to resign over Dragonfly. He felt it was his “ethical responsibility to resign in protest of the forfeiture of our public human rights commitments,” he said.

In his resignation letter, Poulson told his bosses: “Due to my conviction that dissent is fundamental to functioning democracies, I am forced to resign in order to avoid contributing to, or profiting from, the erosion of protection for dissidents.”

“I view our intent to capitulate to censorship and surveillance demands in exchange for access to the Chinese market as a forfeiture of our values and governmental negotiating position across the globe,” he wrote, adding: “There is an all-too-real possibility that other nations will attempt to leverage our actions in China in order to demand our compliance with their security demands.”

This guy gives me hope for humanity.


.
.
Google is being exposed not only for its rabid anti-Trump, anti-conservative bias, but also for its rank hypocrisy in preaching democracy at home while enabling dictatorship abroad.

What a time to be alive.

PUERTO RICAN PROPAGANDA

.

.

I really, really abhor writing pieces on whatever tweet everyone is offended by at the moment. Unfortunately, they sometimes drive the news cycle to the point I’m left with little choice.

PDT set the world ablaze this morning by commenting on something that, frankly, I and many others have suspected for a while now.

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000. This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!” Trump tweeted to the dismay of RINOs and Dims nationwide.


 
.
Like clockwork, the GOP/Dim uni-party sprang into action to see who could clutch their pearls the hardest. Among those who issued statements were Gov. Rick Scott (R) and even Rep. Ron DeSantis (R), who is attemping to ride Trump’s coattails to the governor’s mansion in  Florida..
.
“I disagree with [the president] – an independent study said thousands were lost and Gov. [Ricardo] Rosselló agreed. I’ve been to Puerto Rico 7 times & saw devastation firsthand. The loss of any life is tragic; the extent of lives lost as a result of Maria is heart wrenching,” Scott tweeted this afternoon.
.
DeSantis’s office issued a statement saying he is “committed to standing with the Puerto Rican community, especially after such a tragic loss of life. He doesn’t believe any loss of life has been inflated.”
.
Another Republican official in Florida, who was appointed by Gov. Scott to the state’s Board of Governors, went even further. “Mr. President. SHUT UP,” Alan Levine tweeted. “Any death, whether one or 3,000 is a tragedy. That doesn’t mean you caused it, and its not about you. Show compassion for the families.”
.

.

THE PROBLEM WITH THE NUMBERS:

.

While I agree that PDT has an unsavory habit of making anything and everything about himself, his grievance in this case isn’t necessarily meritless, as Lou Dobbs pointed out.

“The numbers were inflated and the president was right to call out the organizations who threw out science, statistics, and evidence to discredit the Trump administration,” Dobbs said today.

AS Dobbs pointed out, the source of the 3000 number is a study from George Washington University’s Milken Institute, which sought to estimate the “excess deaths” that occurred from Hurricane Maria, as opposed to normal population fluctuations. This is the study that Gov. Scott, Rep. DeSantis and others are taking as the Gospel.

Essentially, what the study did was estimate the number of people who were expected to die over a period of time after the hurricane. Every death that occurred above that number was filed under “storm related.” If that’s solid science, I’m Louis Farrakahn. 

If you don’t believe me, perhaps you’ll take the word of Lynn Goldman, the dean of the very institute who conducted the study, the Milken Institute School of Public Health.

Last month, Goldman told Fake News CNN: “Among all the deaths that occurred, which of them were related to Maria, which of them would not have occurred if it hadn’t been for the storm? We’re not able to say that now.”

Gee, I wonder what percentage of the people who are insufferably moralizing on this issue actually know how they arrived at that data? I’m gonna guess somewhere between 0.0 and 0.1%.


.

BIG PICTURE:

.

PDT is absolutely correct. This is about one thing and one thing only — making him look bad. Unfortunately, the White House is going to have to do a better job communicating the truth of this issue because there has been a flood of Puerto Rican evacuees arriving to Florida since last year.

That’s why Gov. Scott and Rep. DeSantis are having to break ranks and kiss their political asses, because angering the entire community could lead to a voter mobilization that would be very detrimental to the GOP cause.

The sad fact of the matter is most people educate themselves via soundbite, and that’s why having a competent White House communications team is more important than ever. Though, frankly, it would help if PDT gave them a heads up to be prepared before lighting up the world on Twitter. A special presentation at the WH Press Brief could be a good option, much like they did with economic numbers this week.

SOMETHING CONSERVATIVE HAPPENED!

.

.

Liberals screamed bloody murder when the Trump administration backed a policy being adopted by some states that requires able-bodied Medicaid recipients to work. And now that it’s actually being enforced, they’re going to be screaming louder than ever.

Arkansas announced that its new policy requiring recipients to get a dern job or lose Medicaid coverage has resulted in the dropping of 4,353 people from its rolls.


.
The Trump administration in January allowed states to propose work requirements in Medicaid, the state-federal health-care program that covers more than 73 million low-income folks. It’s the first time the federal gubmint has allowed a work requirement in the program since it was created in 1965, and part of a broader effort by the administration to put new conditions on people who use government assistance programs.
.
People subject to the rules have to report 80 hours a month of work or other activity such as job training, education, or volunteering. If they’re out of compliance for three months out of the year, their coverage is revoked for the rest of the year. The change will save the state about $30 million, as estimated by Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson.
.

The policy puts Arkansas at the center of a fierce legal and political fight over Medicaid, which has long been a fall-back health-care option for the poor. Under the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid was expanded to cover uninsured Americans through a mix of public and private insurance.


.

As expected, the commies are taking their show to court, as a coalition of legal groups has challenged the Arkansas work requirements in D.C. federal court. An earlier lawsuit in the same court temporarily blocked work requirements in Kentucky’s Medicaid program that were set to take effect this summer.

In violation of the fundamental federalist principles of our Constitution, states need permission from Big Daddy Washington to impose work requirements. In addition to Arkansas, Indiana, New Hampshire and Kentucky have won approval for them. At least nine other states are considering adding the rules. Proposed work requirements in 10 states could affect 1.7 million beneficiaries.

BarryCare allowed states to expand coverage to childless adults above the poverty line, including people with incomes of up to about $16,000 a year for an individual or $34,000 a year for a family of four in 2018. In Arkansas, one of 33 states and D.C. that expanded the program, Medicaid covers about 30% of the population.

Like other states enforcing work requirements, Arkansas is aiming the rules at the group that got coverage under BarryCare, while the elderly, disabled and children are exempt.

In plain language, the people who Medicaid was designed for will be just fine. Healthy young adults, on the other hand, need to have a job before asking for free insurance.

Simple enough, right?


.

THE TRUMP ADMIN AIN’T DONE YET:

.

Work requirements already exist in federal food and cash welfare programs, and Team Trump intends to expand them. An April 10, PDT signed an executive order designed to reform welfare systems by “introducing new work requirements when legally permissible,” to encourage self-sufficiency.

The idea is to draw idle people into the labor force, give them a path off of Medicaid and onto job-provided insurance, and improve people’s health through the social benefits of work. It’s essentially the polar opposite of Obama’s goals, which was to create as many government dependents as possible. It creates a reliable voting bloc for the Dim party at the expense of our national character.

Smile, folks! There is good stuff going on. You just have to know where to look.

Go PDT!
