The Hill is reporting that Democrat Rep. Maxine “Mad Max” Waters of goofy California “is slated to deliver a televised address immediately following President Trump’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday.”
This is going to be hilarious! A circus show with a corrupt, race-baiting clown as the ringmaster. Must see TV. Can’t wait. Bring popcorn.
Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA notes that black unemployment under Obama in January 2017 was 7.8% while black unemployment under Trump in January 2018 was down to 6.8%. I wonder if Mad Max will mention that in her post-SOTU rant? Yeah, right.
The PC Police put another notch on their totem pole with the announcement that the Cleveland Indians will be removing the 60-year-old Chief Wahoo logo from its uniforms and baseball caps at the conclusion of the 2018 season.
Major League Baseball commish Rob Manfred declared Chief Wahoo was “no longer appropriate for on-field use” because it conflicted with MLB’s commitment “to building a culture of diversity and inclusion throughout the game” – and the Indians caved under pressure.
Chief Wahoo’s demise will surely result in a trail of tears by Indian fans leaving the stadium all summer long.
Make no mistake; I’m supporting Adam Laxalt for governor. However, this uproar over Democrat gubernatorial candidate Steve Sisolak pointing out that disciplinary problems in Catholic schools have historically been met effectively by nuns using an appropriately-delivered swat on the behind or rap on the knuckles with a ruler is beyond stupid.
Ask any teacher not under mind-control by the teachers’ union what their biggest problem in the classroom is and they’ll tell you it’s their inability to exert appropriate discipline to curtail trouble-makers and class clowns. Sisolak was absolutely correct in pointing out that such problems don’t exist in Sister Susan Mary’s classroom.
The political hyper-ventilating over his observation is just plain stupid.
And speaking of stupid, this story comes from Land of Stupid: Kalifornia…
Democrat Assembly Majority Leader Ian Calderon has introduced a bill that would nail waiters and waitresses with a $1,000 fine and six months in jail if they give a diner a plastic straw with their beverage unless the diner specifically asks for one.
“We need to create awareness around the issue of one-time use plastic straws and its detrimental effects on our landfills, waterways, and oceans,” the moron explained in a press release. Beam me up, Scotty!
And while we’re stuck on stupid, anti-smoking zealot Mike Bangle of Mesquite inked a letter-to-the-editor published today in the Las Vegas Review-Journal wondering why privately-owned casinos get to decide whether or not to allow smoking in their privately-owned businesses.
But here’s the real stupidity kicker. He declares: “If a person wants to smoke in a casino, take it outside.” Um, derp.
In the Democrat primary for Nevada’s 4th congressional district, some black Democrats are saying they support lobbyist Steven Horsford simply because he’s black. And some women Dems are saying they support Pat Spearman simply because she’s a woman.
So does that mean it’d be OK for me to support North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee in that race simply because he’s a white man?
Jeff Miller is also running for CD4. As a conservative white man and registered Republican with little to no chance of winning either the primary or the general election in this big, Democrat-majority district. But he does raise some troubling issues that are going to dog the likely GOP nominee for that race, former Rep. Cresent Hardy.
First, Mr. Hardy joined the Never Trump gang in 2016. Secondly, Miller claims in a press release that as a member of the Nevada Legislature Mr. Hardy voted to give drivers licenses to illegal aliens.
Neither of those issues are enough to deny Hardy the nomination in the primary, but many Republicans with long memories aren’t likely to punch his name on their general election ballot. They’ll just “pull a Heller” and vote for a third-party candidate or None of the Above.
Saw a video clip last weekend featuring a woman named Patricia Ackerman, who is running for Assembly District 39, saying the answer to fixing education isn’t throwing more money at it. Since the current Assemblyman for that district, Ass. Jim Wheeler-Dealer, has sold out conservatives so he can sit at the big kids table with the rest of the GOP “establishment” in Carson City, I looked her up.
First, she’s a Democrat. Which means she has virtually no chance in this particular district. Secondly, her campaign website, though aesthetically attractive, is totally content free. No bio. No “Why I’m Running” statement. No positions on issues. Nothing but a couple of photos, a “Donate” button, and a contact form.
Hope she didn’t pay somebody for this embarrassment.
I got a kick out of an article published last week by the Moapa Valley Progress in which they described a “large turnout” for tax-hiking RINO Assemblyman James “The Big Selloutski” Oscarson’s re-election kick-off event. Because I was there.
In fact, Oscarson had his campaign manager demand that I leave, and threatened to call the cops on me if I didn’t. I refused and they chickened out. No cops were called.
Regardless, the fact is there were, at best, about two dozen people there. If that’s a “large turnout,” I hope The Big Selloutski has an equally “large turnout” in his primary election in June vs. Dennis Hof (Disclaimer: Hof is one of my clients.)
I didn’t pay any attention to the so-called “Women’s March” last week – even though Vegas was chosen as ground zero for the national temper-tantrum – because it really was nothing more than an anti-Trump bitch session.
Then I saw a photo of the stadium where this media-proclaimed massive rally took place. More than half the stadium was completely empty. A virtual ghost town. What a flop. Sad.
I know a lot of my friends disagree, but as I’ve written before I think Republican congressional candidate Victoria Seaman is a phony whose word can’t be trusted.
Among the myriad examples is her continued use on Twitter of this photo of herself and President Trump she had taken at a rally in 2016…
By constantly posting the photo, Seaman’s disingenuously implying, although without outright claiming, that either the President supports her and/or that she supports the President.
But if that’s the case, then what are we to assume about this photo featuring Victoria and Rep. Ruben “Roaming Fingers” Kihuen? Does this mean he supports her? Or that she supports him? Or is it a mutual admiration relationship? Inquiring minds wanna know!
