THIS LAST DITCH EFFORT TO BRING DOWN BRETT KAVANAUGH IS DISGUSTING And has to be a new low for Senate Democrats. The last new low for me was when Senator Harry Reid LIED on the floor of the US Senate in order to create the impression that Mitt Romney had avoided paying taxes. Remember when AFTER the election, when Romney lost, Reid was asked if the tax comment was true. Remember what he said? I do.
Yet Reid (D-Nev.) not only refuses to retract the allegation but also seems to take great pride in it. When pressed by CNN's Dana Bash last year about continuing to defend a statement that is not true, Reid responded, "Romney didn't win, did he?"
Here's more on the mind of Harry Reid and why he took to the floor of the US Senate TO LIE about a candidate for President of the United States.
Is there a line he wouldn’t cross when it comes to political warfare?
“I don’t know what that line would be,” [Reid] said.
Now Harry Reid is out of the Senate (PRAISE JESUS) and we're left with Senator Dianne Feinstein to pick up the pieces of political warfare. She had the email about this story SINCE JULY. She CHOSE NOT TO USE IT until the Dems realized they had very little chance of stopping Kavanaugh's nomination. This is dirty pool and nothing more.
AND FOR THE WOMEN WHO THINK DEMOCRATS CARE ABOUT THEM PLEASE TAKE NOTE. They don't care about you. They don't care if you've been victimized. They only care about how they can use it to further their stupid political means. They denigrate real victims of sexual assault by using one woman's dodgy memories for nothing more than cheap political points. I'd be embarrassed if I were a female Democrat today. Just sayin. You can watch the interview with Harry Reid for yourself.
As for the Kavanaugh nomination, this woman should have her day before the committee and Committee chair Chuck Grassley says he's going to do just that, but not before ripping Democrats a new one for this nakedly political move. Good on him.
AND NOW THE LEADERS OF THE #METOO MOVEMENT ARE OFFICIALLY MELTING DOWN And this is about the wacko Asia Argento story which I've mentioned many times on this blog. Now Asia Argento is threatening to SUE fellow Harvey Weinstein victim Rose McGowan. Sigh. These women can't get out of their own way. Asia Argento seems straight up mentally ill and Rose McGowan isn't the most stable gal out there.
TWITTER HAS A PROBLEM WITH IT'S CORPORATE LIBERAL CULTURE And I don't mean how they seem to always silence conservative voices. The CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey said this during an interview:
“We have a lot of conservative-leaning folks in the company as well, and to be honest, they don’t feel safe to express their opinions at the company,” Dorsey said. “They do feel silenced by just the general swirl of what they perceive to be the broader percentage of leanings within the company, and I don’t think that’s fair or right.”
Dorsey also explained why he brought up Twitter’s left-leaning employee bias to begin with.
“I think it’s more and more important to at least clarify what our own bias leans towards, and just express it,” he added. “I’d rather know what someone biases to rather than try to interpret through their actions.”
I actually agree with him on his second point. We all have biases, let's just admit them and move on. The issue I have here is that Dorsey is still trying to deny that Twitter OPERATES with bias. Even if an algorithm does the picking of who gets silenced, SOMEONE PROGRAMS THAT ALGORITHM. But good for Jack that he's trying to figure this stuff out. I do believe he actually cares this is a problem.
HEY THAT DAILY ASPIRIN YOU'RE TAKING COULD KILL YOU. So says a new very comprehensive study of the effectiveness of a daily aspirin on otherwise health adults. If you haven't had a stroke or heart attack, you may want to read this and then talk to your doctor who advised you to take a low dose aspirin. Because it may cause way worse issues than you can imagine.
ARE THERE ONLY FOUR PERSONALITY TYPES? I love personality type tests on the internet. And IQ tests, but we'll do that later. I'm a huge fan of Myers-Briggs. Many social psychologists do NOT like the notion of a personality test because they don't believe there are only a limited number of personality types. This study shows that most personalities can be distilled down to one of four types. Find out if you are represented here.
WORDS MATTER AND TV NEWS IS USING WORDS TO DESCRIBE TRUMP And shockingly (not really, this is entirely predictable) they are using words that paint President Donald Trump as crazy or mentally unstable. Check this list out via the Media Research Center and wonder why people have a negative impression of the President's mental state.
THIS IS A NICE STORY BUT TOO BAD IT'S NEWS Because returning a purse full of cash shouldn't be worthy of a news story, but alas, it is.
IS JARED POLIS CHASING WINDMILLS WHEN HE TALKS 100% RENEWABLE ENERGY? The short answer is yes, and I'm happy to see Walker Stapleton challenging Polis on this very issue. I'd really like to ask what the people who want this standard to answer one simple question: what are you willing to give up to make this happen?
WILL HICK JUST ANNOUNCE ALREADY? Governor John Hickenlooper, who doesn't have time to come on my show, is totally running for POTUS. He's just formed a "leadership PAC" which is a fancy name for an organization that will foot his bills while he flies around to places like California and New York to raise money and support for his non-announced-but-totally-coming run for POTUS. Can anyone answer these questions: Do you think Hick can stand up to Trump? Perform well against the non stop barrage of insults? Answer hard questions? He can't even do that last thing with me, so here's me officially doubting he can beat Trump. Just my opinion.
I WISH ALL TOW AWAY ZONES CAME WITH THESE SPEAKERS
BY THE WAY, YOU NEED TO GO ON VACATION WITH ME! And here's a fun video about where we're going and why you should go!
