These people have absolutely no shame.

How the Left loves to say Obama’s presidency was scandal-less. We’ve always thought scandalous.
If the FBI’s actions surrounding the investigation of Trump before the 2016 election was as squeaky clean and by the book as made out, why did a swathe of agents take out ‘liability insurance‘ two weeks before Trump took office?
The Federalist notes from federal court filings that with respect to ‘Operation Crossfire Hurricane‘:
“Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents tasked by fired former Director James Comey to take down Donald Trump during and after the 2016 election were so concerned about the agency’s potentially illegal behavior that they purchased liability insurance to protect themselves less than two weeks before Trump was inaugurated president, previously hidden FBI text messages show. The explosive new communications and internal FBI notes were disclosed in federal court filings today from Sidney Powell, the attorney who heads Michael Flynn’s legal defense team.”
“[W]e all went and purchased professional liability insurance,” one agent texted on Jan. 10, 2017, the same day CNN leaked details that then-President-elect Trump had been briefed by Comey about the bogus Christopher Steele dossier.”
“Holy crap,” an agent responded. “All the analysts too?”
“Yep,” the first agent said. “All the folks at the Agency as well.”
“[C]an I ask who are the most likely litigators?” an agent responded. “[A]s far as potentially suing y’all[?]”
“[H]aha, who knows….I think [t]he concern when we got it was that there was a big leak at DOJ and the NYT among others was going to do a piece,” the first agent said.
“I’m tellying [sic] man, if this thing ever gets FOIA’d, there are going to be some tough questions asked,” one agent wrote. “[A]nd a great deal of those will be related to Brian having a scope way outside the boundaries of logic[.]”
“We have some loose ends to tie up, and we all need to meet to discuss what to do with each case (he said shut down Razor),” one agent texted, referring to Crossfire Razor, the FBI’s internal code name for the investigation of Flynn.
“[S]o glad they’re closing Razor,” an agent responded.
“[D]oing all this election research – I think some of these guys want a [C]linton presidency,” one agent wrote on Aug. 11, shortly after the FBI opened the Crossfire Hurricane investigation against Trump.
Nothing to see here.
It was only a few weeks ago when we had news that many staffers working for Mueller mysteriously forgot their iPhone passwords and wiped all the data.
Back in 1991, Judge Clarence Thomas was nominated by George Bush Sr to fill a vacancy on the SCOTUS bench.
The Democrat-controlled Senate took to a smear campaign dug up by staffers alleging Thomas had engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with Anita Hill, someone he worked with a decade prior.
Suffice to say Anita Hill was subject to a detailed grilling over her sordid allegations and such was the humiliation, the other two key witnesses declined to subject themselves to the same treatment.
The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman was Joe Biden.
Politics is a dirty business. One wonders what dirt will be dished up for the coming nominee?!!
The Prince and Princess of Woke continue to become ever more cringeworthy.
It is surreal to hear lectures from people like this imploring we build “communities of compassion.” Harry infamously wore a Nazi uniform to a fancy dress party and Meghan thinks a nuclear family destroying self-professed Marxist co-founder of BLM is someone to aspire to and worthy of a Netflix docuseries.
Harry blathered about clamping down on hate speech and misinformation. Don’t they read the mainstream media or see the party they are endorsing took 100 days to condemn rioting, looting and destruction of public property in their own back yard?
No wonder the Queen had the Palace slap her grandson.
What a farce. These are the responses given by senior officials in the Victoria government when questioned over who was responsible for ordering private security guards which led to the hotel quarantine outbreak fiasco.
These are the very people who expect Victorians to put trust in their ability to execute.
Selective memories aka lies.
No doubt when Premier Dan Andrews testifies at this enquiry, he’ll have forgotten too.
Any other state premier would be forced to resign over this debacle. Watch a willing media skip over this blithering incompetence and praise Dan Andrews for bringing forward the timeline to reopen the economy from lockdown because of his stewardship which he will end reneging on.
Let’s not forget the omnibus the premier is trying to ram through parliament which will allow unqualified public servants to arrest and detain Victorian residents indefinitely on the grounds of suspicion alone. No facts. Just a hunch they think one could be up to no good.
Serial hypocrite Alyssa Milano is at it again.
The high priestess of woke has been a huge advocate of defunding the police. When a young neighborhood kid was shooting squirrels with an air gun she called 911 claiming an armed gunman was loose on her property.
Despite her anti-cop rhetoric, those selfless law enforcement officers sent at least seven Ventura County Sheriffs’ vehicles, one K-9 unit, a police helicopter and one Los Angeles Fire Department team to the scene.
Isn’t virtue signaling wonderful? Heap scorn on the very service she demands immediately defend her.
Imagine if the police let her literally sweat bullets by delaying their response to her call and ignoring her status as a Hollywood celebrity. Maybe then she would shift her woke Twitter feed from DEFUNDING to DEFENDING or even REFUNDING the police.
We list Alyssa Milano’s litany of hypocrisy here. She is a gift that keeps giving.
What a pack of total frauds. This montage exposes the utter hypocrisy of the Democrats.
In 2020 they are foaming at the mouth to prevent a SCOTUS nomination when in 2016 they were 100% for it.
Beyond this hypocrisy, is this idea that if the Dems get power in the Senate they’ll look to increase the SCOTUS bench to 11 and ram in liberal judges to skew the judiciary.
So on the one hand, Democrats are saying RBG’s dying wishes to hold her vacancy til after the election should be respected. On the other hand they are ignoring her very own words with respect to numbers on the bench:
“…nine seems to be a good number; it’s been that way for a long time” adding that “court packing” was a “bad idea.“

“A Man named Harold, a President named Barack and a Vice President named Joe.
This summarizes how most liberals view the US military:
Harold was a bright child. He grew up in America. He went to school and had a bright future ahead of him. Harold was full of life but was cut short in a violent moment. While few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many did afterward And in death, something very shocking happened. What was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else recently in the news?
Harold was Harold Greene, Major General, United States Army. On Aug. 5, 2014, Major General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist.
He was returned to America with full military honors.
It has been a tradition that the president attends the funeral of General and Flag officers killed in the line of duty.
Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a Major General Casey killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks.
While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing. Vice President Biden wasn’t there either. Neither was the Secretary of Defense.
Flags were not even lowered half-mast.
Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri.
Brown was at best a young thug. In the minutes before his death, he committed a robbery at a local convenience store. According to other reports, Brown struck Officer Darren Wilson and shattered his orbital bone. Obama sent a three-person delegation to Brown’s funeral!
Neither Obama nor Biden would attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he sent a delegation to the funeral of a thug.
When Margaret Thatcher, one of America’s staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan’s partner in bringing down Soviet communism died, Obama sent only a small low-level delegation to her funeral. The snub was not missed by the British.
When Chris Kyle, the most lethal American sniper in history was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House.
But when Whitney Houston died from drug overdose, the Obama/Biden administration ordered all flags be flown at half-mast.
There was no White House delegation at the funeral of an American hero. American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course.
A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation.
No wonder most “REAL” Americans hold Obama in such contempt, especially members of our Military.
And Biden is now expounding on how great the Obama/Biden administration was.
Stand up for the “Harolds” in America.”
In the history of the United States, there have been 29x that an open SCOTUS vacancy has occurred in an election year.
In ALL 29 cases, a nomination was made by the incumbent president regardless of whether the candidate was accepted by the Senate including up until the last day in office.
So for Trump not to nominate a candidate would go against the grain of a 100% historic precedent.
We found AF Branco’s cartoon especially on point.
In November 2013, Senate Democrats led by Harry Reid used what was called the ‘nuclear option‘ to eliminate the 60-vote minimum rule (out of 10 votes) on executive branch nominations and federal judicial appointments except those regarding confirmations to the Supreme Court.
Rule XX allows the Senate to decide any issue by a simple majority vote. i.e. 51 votes.
In April 2017, Senate Republicans under Mitch McConnell merely extended the nuclear option of Reid to Supreme Court nominations as well which prevented the filibuster against the nomination of Neil Gorsuch.
Conservative Larry Elder gives his take on the damage BLM is doing to its own cause. He also takes a potshot at the folly of white liberals who take offence when they confront black conservatives who don’t perceive themselves as victims.
