Stacey Abrams: We Need to Stop ‘Re-Litigating’ Past Elections

H/T Breitbart.

This is rich from a woman that would not concede her loss in the Georgia Governor’s race.

Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) told college students on Wednesday that the time has come to stop “re-litigating” past elections, even as she has yet to formally concede her defeat to governor Brian Kemp (R) in 2018.

“We have to stop re-litigating past elections and have to start planning for future elections,” Abrams told the crowd at the University of New England in Portland, Maine, before adding that she would jump at the opportunity to serve in an administration led by any 2020 Democrat and called the field an “extraordinary crop” of candidates.

Abrams lost the race for governor by roughly 55,000 votes and has since repeatedly blamed the result on “voter suppression” efforts allegedly from Kemp. Several Democrat presidential candidates have claimed that the election was unfair and Abrams should be leading the state today.

“Stacey Abrams ought to be the governor of Georgia,” Buttigieg told Democratic National Committee’s African American Leadership Summit in June.

“When racially motivated voter suppression is permitted, when districts are drawn so that politicians get to choose their voters instead of the other way around, when money is allowed to outvote people in this country, we cannot truly say we live in a democracy,” he added.

In August 2019, Abrams launched a voter protection advocacy group in 20 states called Fair Fight 2020. “We have to fix those laws because as long as we have eligible American citizens who cannot cast a ballot, then the game is rigged,” the Democrat told CBS This Morning at the time.

Abram’s latest comments come after she failed to persuade a judge that approval 100,000 inactive voter registrations should be reinstated to Georgia’s voter rolls.

 

Grand Jury Indictments in Harris County, Prosecution of Police in No Knock Raid

H/T AmmoLand.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in court.

Innocent people have been killed due to faulty information and a no-knock warrant.

 

 

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- In the ongoing investigation of the murder of an innocent couple during a Houston no-knock raid, two police officers have been indicted by a Harris County Grand Jury.

On 28 January, 2019, a no-knock raid was executed at 7815 Harding Street, the residence of a longtime married couple of modest means, Dennis Tuttle and his wife of twenty years, Rhogena Nicholas. Neither of the couple had any significant police record.

Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas were the victims.
Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas were the victims.

After the police broke down the door and shot the family dog, Dennis Tuttle fired back in defense. It was claimed he wounded four police officers with a .357 magnum revolver; that claim is uncertain because of how the crime scene evidence was collected.

Many police claims about the raid were disputed early. Investigations by Harris County, the Houston P.D., the FBI and a private forensics firm have been ongoing.

The Harris County District Attorney, Kim Ogg, announced felony charges and arrests of retired officers Gerald Goines and Steven Bryant of the Houston Police Department in August, 2019. The two officers were described as partners. Both retired two months after the Harding Street Raid, while the investigations were ongoing.

The Harris County DA took the unusual step of arresting the accused before a grand jury investigation.

On 15 January, 2020, the Harris County Grand Jury returned indictments for former officers Gerald Goines and Steven Bryant.  Goines for felony murder and tampering with documents, Bryant for tampering with documents.

Former Sgt Goines was wounded in the raid, and could not speak to investigators. He gave written responses in the hospital. From his hospital bed, he claimed, at different times, five different confidential informants (CI) had made the drug buys claimed in the no-knock warrant. All five CI told investigators they had not purchased drugs at the house. Then Sgt Goines said he had purchased the drugs himself.

The case for the warrant and the raid unraveled.

The federal investigation resulted in warrants on federal charges of deprivation of rights under color of law and of obstruction of justice, of Goines, and of Bryan for falsification of records. In addition, a neighbor, Patricia Ann Garcia, was arrested and charged for false 911 calls.

KHOU.com reported that Patricia Ann Garcia had a lengthy criminal record of misdemeanors and a felony theft.  From khou.com:

She was also convicted of felony theft in 1995. The rest of her long rap sheet is misdemeanors — five thefts, an assault of a family member in 2013, four driving while license suspended, with the last one in 2016 and one possession of marijuana.

The Harris County DA, Kim Ogg, said this grand jury will be dismissed near the end of the January, 2020. The investigation will continue in two more phases, each with a grand jury empaneled for about three months. The next phase should start early in February.

The second phase will concern itself with a review of additional officers and the potential of additional charges being brought.

The third phase, which should commence about the end of May, will be concerned with the shooting at Harding Street. From the press conference, DA Ogg:

“Phase three will be an investigation into the shooting itself and the other members of the squad who were in “the stack”; when the home was entered, the door was breached, and the family killed.”

The third phase of the investigation may answer questions about who fired what firearms, at what time, and at what targets.

Harris County has nearly two dozen investigators working on the case, nearly full time. Harris County hired ten additional investigators for this purpose.

DA Ogg said her office is working hard to investigate all leads to any corruption that is involved with this case, with narcotics squad 15 and its eleven members, or with any other case which is brought to them involving police corruption.

New Jersey Bill Could Turn Painful Layoffs into Death Spirals for Companies

H/T Western Journal.

This so-called Toys R Us law will cause companies to exit New Jersey.

You can’t make a worker’s paradise without breaking a few companies.

It was understood that the business climate in New Jersey would change when Democrat Gov. Phil Murphy was elected in 2017.

Generally blue New Jersey had a Republican governor in the person of Chris Christie for eight years, and one could have reasonably anticipated a rubber-band effect; with the governor’s mansion back in their control, particularly in control of an inveterate left-winger like Murphy, there was going to be a pent-up release of progressive legislation.

It’s now 2020 and that rubber-banding continues unabated, with the business climate being one of the areas most adversely affected. A plan to phase in a $15-an-hour minimum wage law over five years was passed last year and corporate tax rates were hiked significantly. The good news is that this hasn’t affected the state’s unemployment — yet, anyway, thanks to a booming economy.

Still, New Jersey was one of the top five states for residents moving out in 2019, according to a North American Van Lines report. In 2018, it was the No. 1 state for out-migration, the North American Van Lines report from that year showed. And 46 percent of movers said they left due to job-related circumstances. Oh well — less competition in the incipient labor Shangri-La, right?

Now, as CBS News reported, the Democrat-dominated New Jersey legislature has a new gift for the state’s employers: A mandate that companies that lay off more than 50 workers at a time give the employees longer notice and give them one week’s pay for every year the employee has worked for the company, among other benefits.

The bill, S-3170, is known colloquially as the “Toys ‘R’ Us Bill,” CBS reported. It’s named for the bankrupt children’s retailer that shut down in 2018 and had its headquarters and distribution center in the Garden State. According to Law.com, this resulted in 2,028 lost jobs.

The bill passed both the state Senate and the Assembly on Jan. 13 and is on its way to the governor’s desk. Tuesday is the deadline for Murphy to sign or veto the bill, NJ.com reported.

The legislation, CBS News reported, would extend the prior notice period for mass layoffs — designated as any layoff of over 50 employees by a company with over 100 employees — from 60 days to 90 days. The severance pay mandate would be extended to all employees, as opposed to just full-time ones.

It would also categorize the severance payments as wages owed, which could have a substantial legal effect, according to Alvaro Hasani, an employment attorney for Fisher Phillips who talked to The Washington Post.

Hasani said that most companies require a “release of claims” agreement in return for severance payments, in which the laid-off employee agrees not to sue the employer. Under the “Toys R Us Bill,” Hasani says, “what’s unclear is whether that can be a continuing practice given the law.”

“Under the [bill], the severance is characterized as wages owed, so you can’t bargain,” Hasani said.

“Companies have exploited bankruptcy laws to protect their profits while workers lose their jobs and severance pay,” state Sen. Joseph Cryan, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, said in a statement after the bill passed the Senate.

“Employees shouldn’t be left in the dark as companies are pillaged for their resources after equity firms load them down with debt and the top officials walk away with bonuses. The law needs to be upgraded to better protect the rights of the workers.

“In this and other cases, the bankrupt companies were purchased by private equity firms that imposed massive layoffs while top executives walked away with millions of dollars in bonuses,” he added.

The details of the Toys R Us death are irrelevant here; its business model was thoroughly untenable in the era of Amazon and Target, where most of what it offered could be purchased online or in a retailer with a more varied selection of goods. Its shutdown was inevitable, one way or another, particularly given the ongoing “retail apocalypse.

Protecting companies from leveraged buyouts by private equity firms wouldn’t have made Toys R Us profitable nor would it have saved those jobs, in the long run. Nor, in fact, does this legislation do anything of the sort.

What it does do, however, is potentially create a death spiral for companies that are based in New Jersey or that choose to locate a substantial portion of their workforce there.

“If enacted, this proposal would make our business climate even less competitive,” Mike Wallace, a vice president with the New Jersey Business & Industry Association, said in a December statement.

“It would come after the enactment of a series of tax increases and other expensive mandates imposed on employers during the past year, including a higher corporate business tax, higher state income tax, new paid sick leave requirements and the signing of a $15 minimum wage.

“This is an example of a piece of legislation that was a reaction to a really unacceptable situation,” CEO Christine Renna of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey, told The Washington Post. “It’s going to make New Jersey an outlier.”

The new law wouldn’t just have a deleterious effect on for-profit businesses, either.

“My nonprofit clients are really concerned,” Newark, New Jersey-based attorney Maxine Neuhauser told The Post.

“These are not folks who are being driven into bankruptcy by private equity companies. These are organizations trying to do good work.”

Of course, the primary danger is to companies, particularly when they’re at their most vulnerable.

Most corporations aren’t Toys R Us and they’re not trying to pick up stakes and leave employees in a lurch to make a quick profit for executives. If they can’t afford to reorganize, however, or have to make employment termination decisions further in advance, you’re going to see more jobs lost than you would have.

For companies trying to become profitable the right way, this bill is a millstone around their neck — and one that could well pull them under thanks to the increased expenses it contains.

As for the Democrats’ contention this bill will somehow help thwart iniquitous behavior by private equity firms, that’s either deliberately over-optimistic or adorably naïve.

The danger is that New Jersey isn’t just an outlier, however. Remember how we conservatives used to ridicule $15-an-hour minimum wage legislation, when and where it was enacted, as a thoroughly untenable fantasy? That sort of legislation is still thoroughly untenable, but it’s hardly a fantasy at this point, having become the norm as opposed to the exception in blue jurisdictions nationwide.

The same thing could be said for New Jersey’s bill. The Post reported that United For Respect, a labor group that worked with Democrats on crafting the New Jersey statute, is also working with legislators in California, New York and Michigan to enact similar laws in those states.

Which is alarming, since this bill hurts those it purports to protect. Democratic lawmakers want you to believe that they’re standing behind workers on the lowest rung of the employment ladder, particularly in the retail sector. What they’re doing, however, is scaring away employers from directing more jobs away from New Jersey. Given the scarcity of jobs in the retail sector as it is, the stand Democrats are taking is cold comfort at best.

Meanwhile, those on the lowest part of the lowest rung are part-time employees, who are no longer exempted from the protections for laid-off workers. However, to count this as a protection, you have to presuppose those positions will exist or continue to be created after the law is passed. When you consider the additive effect of a minimum wage that will increase to $15 an hour by 2024, that’s hardly a guarantee for New Jerseyans.

It’s not good for workers, it’s not good for businesses and there’s zero evidence this will restrain private equity. It sounds great on paper, though — and like any supposedly well-intentioned piece of legislation introduced by the Democrats, it’ll be held up as an example of how they protect the little guy from the machinations of big business.

Meanwhile, I can guarantee you Gov. Murphy and Co. will feign cluelessness as to why people are fleeing the worker’s paradise they’re busy setting up in the Garden State.

Conservatives Love McSally’s Brutal Media Diss

H/T Town Hall.

I want to say Bravo to Martha McSalley(R-AZ)for calling a spade a spade by calling the CNN commentator a liberal hack.

I had pretty much written off Martha McSally as a loser, a sure loss of the crucial Arizona Senate seat she got handed after flubbing a campaign to win the state’s other one, but it looks like I was wonderfully wrong. Somewhere along the line, McSally got woke, calling a liberal hack from CNN a “liberal hack” and inspiring a million Dem-loving media tears. It was glorious, and overdue. McSally laid out that simpering microphone jockey and showed that maybe she can take the fight to her gun-stealing, socialist-tolerating astronaut opponent and keep our seat.

Fredocon cruise director Bill “Ahoy” Kristol and the usual suspects wet themselves over her show of awesomeness – as a conservative, that’s a mighty credibility boost right there. By the way she owned her play and milked it for earned media afterwards, it looks like she figured out that she’s got zero chance if she’s just another GOP weenie too frightened by the over-paid, under-successful consultant class suits surrounding her to toss a haymaker at some punk reporter. It’s about time.

She used to be an Air Force A-10 pilot, riding a 30mm cannon into battle. I know from a pal who was an underclassman that she was a beast to her charges at the Academy (he says she’s top notch, but he’s also Air Force so you gotta factor that in).

Yet, like most career military going into politics, she was pretty useless for a long time, just sort of stumbling through, losing a key election and generally being nice and polite and open-minded and across-the-aisle reaching.

Ugh. Never go full Romney.

McSally is a literal hero, in military terms – an example to be emulated. But as a Republican senator, she just wasn’t getting it done. And she needed to hear that. She needed to unleash the Thunderbolt II pilot that was in there somewhere, buried under layers of consultant goo, just waiting for a chance to send a volley of figurative depleted uranium rounds at some Democrat lackey with a mic and a ‘tude.

Target acquired; target destroyed.

She needed to show us that she was willing to win.

Looks like she did, right Manu?

A lot of people are puzzled about why military vets so often disappoint us hardcore cons. Here’s the thing – most senior military people are not hardcore conservatives. They are mostly moderate squishes, and a disturbing number actively cavort with the libs. McSally’s Democrat opponent is one – he wants to take your guns and money and make sure the Supreme Court is full of judges who support abortion on a whim. And he must be stopped.

Remember that a lot of Republican vets who were fearless on the battlefield turn to gelatin in the political arena. They don’t bring that killer instinct to the fight in DC, and that’s no surprise. At the War Colleges (she went to the Air Force one, I went to the Army one) they teach you less about war than about how to behave so you don’t scare the civilians you have to work with at that level. Treating the members of the mainstream media like exactly what they are, with all the contempt they have earned – especially CNN – is not on the syllabus.

“But gee Kurt, you were a colonel too. Why are you so…uninhibited, while so many other retired officers seem reticent and unwilling to brawl?”  

Well, I’m a civilian litigator, and I was a reservist at the end (it’s a very different vibe than active duty, and I’ve done both), and I’m just a contrary SOB. Plus, I hung out with Andrew Breitbart.

McSally was on her way to losing again, but she has now demonstrated the requisite wokeness to take the attack to the enemy. She saw she drew blood and moved in for the kill, grabbing up the domain name liberalhack.com and using it to sell t-shirts. She’s fundraising off the viral vid and the media meltdown that followed. Arizona Republicans are thinking, “Maybe she’s not a loser after all.”

That’s crucial. McSally knows how essential morale is. If you are a commander and you are tepid, soft, and indecisive, your troops are going to resign themselves to defeat. But if you draw your saber, leap to the front, and shout “Follow me!”, they will – right through the gates of Hell.

This was a key moment for McSally. She was behind (but usually within the margin) and losing. Now, her voters are energized. She’s changed the paradigm and got inside the enemy’s OODA Loop. She needs to take it in for the win.

What she can’t do is doubt herself. What she can’t do is listen to the whiny sissies of the media sobbing uncontrollably because the mean senator said a mean thing to one of the media mean girls.

There’s a new Senator McSally in town, and we cons like her. What she did to Durwood R. Murrow was perfect. The only thing way she could have made it better is by preceding “liberal hack” with an obscene adjective.

The kind of nightmare world McSally’s gun-hating nanny lib opponent wants to create is chronicled in my newest novel Collapse. Check it out along with the other entries in the series, People’s RepublicIndian Country and Wildfire. America has split into red and blue, and both action and liberal-slamming hilarity ensue! The Never Trump losers call my books “appalling,” which is all you need to know.

Supremes to Decide if Electoral College Voters Must Vote for Winner of State Popular Vote

H/T Town Hall. 

The Electoral College is part of the Constitution and it will take a Constitutional Amendment to do away with it so the votes of the college should go to the popular vote winner of the state.

On Friday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a case that would decide whether electoral college electors must vote for the winner of their state’s popular vote. Half the states currently have laws requiring electors to vote for the candidate who wins the popular vote in their state.

Electors who do not vote in accordance to the winner of their state’s popular vote are known as “faithless electors.” According to NBC News, the so-called problem of faithless electors has never really been an actual problem before. In fact, most states simply throw out the ballot of an elector who doesn’t follow the state’s popular vote.

But in 2016, the Democrats ran such a rotten candidate that several electors in states carried by Hillary Clinton cast their ballots for someone else. One elector in Colorado voted for John Kasich, one in Hawaii voted for Bernie Sanders, and four in Washington state voted for two different people — three for Colin Powell and one for Faith Spotted Eagle, the name of a Native American activist, not Elizabeth Warren. Other Democratic electors contemplated voting differently but were reportedly pressured into voting for Clinton. Colorado simply replaced its errant elector with one that would vote for Hillary, while Washington state fined their independent-thinking electors for violating state law.

The Washington state Supreme Court ruled against the electors who challenged the fines imposed upon them. In his dissenting opinion, Justice Steven Gonzalez took issue with the court’s decision, arguing “[t]he Constitution provides the state only with the power to appoint, leaving the electors with the discretion to vote their conscience.”

While states can choose their own electors and require them to pledge certain loyalties, once the electors form the electoral college they are no longer serving a state function but a federal one.

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with Justice Gonzalez’s dissent, ruling that electors can vote for any legitimate candidate they choose.

“The states’ power to appoint electors does not include the power to remove them or nullify their votes,” the 10th Circuit declared.

Just like Arizonans voted to send Jeff Flake to the Senate, but, once there, the voters could not nullify Flake’s votes or fine the senator for voting his conscience, as much as the voters may have wanted to.

In 1952, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that state laws requiring electors to abide by the popular vote of the state did not violate the Constitution, but the high court never ruled whether the states can enforce those pledges after the fact.

The lawyer for the Washington State electors, Harvard Professor Lawrence Lessig is hoping the case will focus attention on what he characterizes as shortcomings in the Electoral College when it comes to reflecting the outcome of the popular vote.

“It could also convince both sides that it is finally time to step up and modify the Constitution to address this underlying problem,” Professor Lessig said. The professor suggested such fixes as the National Popular Vote plan or even a constitutional amendment.

Because a Democrat lost the last presidential election, surely something must be wrong with the Constitution that allowed it to happen.

The case goes before the court this spring and a decision is expected by the end of June.

 

President Trump Retweets Photo Of Schumer, Pelosi In Islamic Garb Posing With Iranian Flag

H/T Flag And Cross.

If two Republicans posed this way every talking heads in the drive-by media would be screaming for their removal from office.

President Trump is not at all afraid to let the world know what he really thinks, especially of those who have crossed him during his time in the Oval Office. Who can blame him? He’s been the target of constant attacks by liberal politicians and the leftist media ever since he announced he was running for office.

Things have only escalated during his time as president. But unlike other leaders we’ve had, he’s not afraid to swing back at those who have opposed him. It’s a bit entertaining to watch, but it also serves the purpose of giving disenfranchised Americans a voice, someone finally fighting for them and their values.

Trump recently set the Internet ablaze by retweeting a picture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer completely decked out in Islamic garb while posing with an Iranian flag.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

President Trump shared a picture on his Twitter of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer in traditional Islamic garb standing in front of the Iranian flag.

“The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue,” said the post that Trump retweeted Monday. The picture had the caption, “Democrats 2020.”

Pelosi has been critical of Trump’s actions in Iran. Last week, she blamed him for Iran hitting U.S. military sites with missile attacks. “We must ensure the safety of our service members, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence. America & world cannot afford war,” she tweeted.

Pelosi was criticized Monday on social media with the trending hashtag “#NancyPelosiFakeNews.”

Say what you will, but President Trump is nothing if not one heck of a Twitter warrior. The man certainly knows how to stir people up, which is something the left has needed to have done to them for a long, long time.

Democrats Always Choose, America’s Enemies Over America

H/T Town Hall.

The way the DemocRats side with our enemies the DemocRats did not side with Imperial Japan after Pearl Harbor being bombed.

Here’s an idea that our Democrat politician friends might want to try if they want to stop being back-stabbing garbage people. It’s kind of a radical notion and a little outside the box, but here goes: How about, just once, you stop sucking-up to the foreign bastards who are attacking our country and take America’s side?

Maybe you should not back and excuse the gay-hanging, women-stoning, airline-downing, Obama check-cashing, Israel-threatening, American-murdering cultists ruling Iran. Just a thought.

It’s kind of crazy, but it just might work.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking what your man-bunned grad student TA taught you, that “Hey, America sucks and these foreigners have a good point about America’s history of imperialism and general badness.” Well, this is a stupid thing to think and you Democrats should stop thinking it. Instead, you should stand with your own country all the time, no matter what.

I know siding with America will infuriate a huge part of your base, since America-hating leftist pieces of Schiff are a key Democrat constituency, but you should try courageously standing up to the trash that forms the foundation of your reeking party instead of collaborating with those fifth columnist communists.

It’s called “character.” Get some.

Yes, I know it’s a proud Democrat tradition stemming back to when your party started, and then ensured the communists won, the Vietnam War. During the last decades of the Cold War, which the Republicans won, you sided with the Russians – for you younger Democrats, Russians only became bad to Democrats sometime in 2016. Still today, if there is a Third World USA-hating potentate or terrorist leader, that dirtbag can count on you. Say, does your vintage Che tee still fit?

But this act is getting old, like your leading presidential candidates.

Perhaps in your blue city/faculty lounge circles, concepts like “patriotism,” “loyalty” and “not allying yourself with communist and Islamist butchers” are character defects that, if you drones had the capacity to breed, you would attempt to breed out of the pack. But here in America, we like them. And we prefer Americans who side with America

I know you don’t like Donald Trump. You have a right not to like Donald Trump. And if you feel it necessary, because you want to fix the skyrocketing stock market and rock-bottom unemployment problems he caused, you can campaign against Donald Trump and support his opponents, whether it be the senile pappy of the promiscuous crack connoisseur, or the fake Indian, or the crusty communist, or that insufferable little weasel who is mayor of the Indiana equivalent of Barstow. That is your right as an American. But you are total garbage if you choose to side with our enemies because you don’t like the guy who the American people elected over your objection.

Donald Trump is your president.

Let me say that again.

Donald Trump is your president.

He is the President of the United States of America. You don’t have to like that. You don’t have to like him. Feel free to run around the country shouting about how “He’s not my president!” But don’t ever side with our enemies because you are mad at him for crushing the Venezuela 2: The Quickening dreams of your idol Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit.

You spent the last three years babbling like idiots about “traitors” and “treachery.” Well, head docs call that “projection.” You are siding with the enemy in a war against the United States. And yeah, Iran has been at war with the United States for 40 years, ever since your peanut-farming, half-wit fellow Dem handed over the keys to the country to a bunch of Seventh Century Pennywises. The least you could do is show a little respect to the people trying to clean up your party’s mess.

Your party’s latest triumph is blaming Donald Trump because these drooling morons shot down a passenger airliner the night they launched missiles at our American soldiers. What the hell is wrong with you? Are you sick? Are you stupid? Are you huffing that funny powder you found in Hunter Biden’s medicine cabinet? What would ever have possessed you to start making excuses for people trying to kill Americans?

There’s a term in the military for people like you: “Blue Falcons.” It derives from the initials “BF.” The initial “B” is for “Buddy.” I’m not going to spell out what the “F’ is for. But you’re Blue Falcons if you sided with Iran’s mullahs against your own country because you got the sadz that mean old Trump is president and not Stumbles McMyturn.

You know, this Soleimani guy, before Donald Trump turned him into a wet bag of disarticulated chunks, murdered over 600 Americans and who knows how many more foreigners. It’s okay to say that he’s bad, and that smearing him across a Baghdad boulevard was pretty damn awesome. Hell, it’s mandatory. You should break out the champagne to celebrate his close encounter of the Hellfire kind. But you won’t. You can’t.

I understand this when it comes to that ridiculous AOC and her brother-curious grifter pal Illin’ Omar. I expect nothing from them except treachery. But a lot of Democrats have spent time in positions of power in Washington or otherwise have some credentials that might lead one to expect that they might resist the radical #resist nitwits. Some of them even served in uniform – Audie Buttigieg never shuts up about his adventures in the Squid Force. They should know better, and they should tell the morons in the Squad and the rest of their America-hating pals to shut their collaboration holes.

But that won’t happen. And it’s a disgrace.

Among the Democrat voters, there are patriots, including those who have served our country with honor and who continue serving today. Those Dem voters are disgusted with you and, if I was cynical, and I am totally cynical, I would issue them a heartfelt invitation to join the Republican Party, where people who love America are welcome. Walk away, Democrat patriots. Welcome to the GOP.

Regardless, you don’t take our disagreements outside of the country. You don’t fight in front of foreigners. And you don’t ever take the enemy’s side. These are just basic, threshold requirements to call yourself a “patriot.” Unless you don’t want to be a patriot. You Democrats who don’t, at least be honest and just come right out and admit that you hate America. And the rest of you should admit that you are just too weak to stand up for it.
