Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams tells new New Yorkers ‘go back to Iowa’

That “liberal tolerance” on display.

Eric Adams

From NY Post: He has a dream — of leading a New York City that is home to far fewer Midwesterners.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams — the leading fundraiser in the 2021 mayoral race — used Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday to deliver an inflammatory broadside against newcomers from the nation’s heartland.

“Go back to Iowa, you go back to Ohio,” he said during a speech in Harlem. New York City belongs to the people that was here and made New York City what it is.”

Speaking at the National Action Network’s “King Day Celebration,” hosted by founder the Rev. Al Sharpton, Adams implicitly played the race card as he denounced gentrification by singling out two states, Iowa and Ohio, that are 91 and 82 percent white, respectively.

Adams also rattled off a litany of social crises — including drug abuse and gun violence — that he said were ignored when they only affected the nation’s “black and brown community.”

He then declared himself “unapologetic” as he invoked the slain civil-rights icon, saying that “if you know the spirit and anything about Dr. King, he did not allow others to be comfortable while everyone else was living in horrific conditions.”

Adams — who raked in $437,099 in political contributions during the past six months, with major donations from the real-estate industry — railed against what he called the “displacement of the people who made this city.”

“You were here before Starbucks,” he told a crowd of about 300 who greeted his remarks with cheers and applause. “You were here before others came and decided they wanted to be part of this city.”

Adams referred to the transplants as “folks who [are] not only hijacking your apartments and displacing your living arrangements, they displace your conversation and say the things that are important to you are no longer important. And they decide what’s important and what is not important.”

In Bushwick, caterer Jenna Hockman, 28, a lifelong Brooklynite, said Adams was “blaming individuals instead of the system that enables developers to build these high rises that are pricing people out.”

“I am concerned about placing responsibility on the individuals that are moving to these neighborhoods and not the people who are making money from these individuals moving there,” she said.

The Republican leader of Ohio’s Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, said Adams “took Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of unity and made it a divisive message.”

About to face the cancel culture? Producer defends using male voices for female animated characters

If you are not “woke” enough in Hollyweird, you will face the wrath of progressives.

Loren Bouchard (above) is an American animator, writer, producer, and television director who has created several animated TV shows.

THR reports that in Apple’s forthcoming Central Park animated comedies, Bouchard told the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour that he knows it isn’t great practice to have men voicing female characters but sometimes it can’t be helped.

Male actors Daveed Diggs and Stanley Tucci both voice female characters, while Kristen Bell lends her voice to the central family’s mixed-race daughter. And on Fox’s mega-hit Bob’s Burgers (created by Bouchard), John Roberts lends his voice to the character of Linda.

Bouchard’s justification for this crime: “Animation just makes you want to take this voice and have it come out if this face. Hopefully there’s something about it that makes sense.”

More from THR:

“Still, Bouchard — who along with exec producer Josh Gad and star Bell raved about the influence musical theater had on them during their formative years — is aware that the practice of handing roles for women to men isn’t particularly great at a time when the industry is making an effort to do better with inclusion on-screen and off.

“Here I am, yet again, taking away two roles for women, and it’s something that I have on my mind all the time to try and keep balancing things,” he said, acknowledging Bell voicing a mixed-race character. “Kristen needed to voice Molly, we couldn’t not make her Molly and then we couldn’t make Molly white and couldn’t make Kristen mixed-race. Then you arrive there and keep doing it as best you can to turn around and give someone an opportunity who wasn’t getting it. A commitment to diversity isn’t some odd job, it’s a commitment to making it better.

Progressives have earned a perfect “10” in the mental gymnastics they go through to justify their double standards.

First children are off limits: Unless you have an extreme case of TDS

My headline is for this post is subtle…and polite and kind.

Because what I really want to tell this “Constitutional Scholar” who made a joke at the expense of 13-year-old Barron Trump yesterday would be really, really inappropriate.

At the impeachment inquiry hearings the demorats had no evidence so they paraded a bunch of their cherry-picked “Constitutional Scholars” to educate us dumb-folk on what is grounds for impeaching President Trump.

The demorats thought it’d be a good idea to trot out the Ivy League Marxist lawyer Pamela Karlan.

About Professor Karlan, from Wikipedia: “…a professor of law at Stanford Law School. A leading legal scholar on voting rights and political process, she served as U.S. Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Voting Rights in the United States Department of Justice Civil Division from 2014 to 2015.”

What is not mentioned in Wikipedia’s page is that Professor Karlan is a biased, liberal womyn and partisan hack willing to take a shot at a 13-year-old boy because #OrangeManBad.

Watch her make a joke about President Trump’s son instead of addressing any ACTUAL crime our president may have committed:

Remember the good ‘ol days when “criticizing the ‘first children’ was off-limits. Yeah, good times.

You demorats are SUCH HYPOCRITES.

While this “scholarly” womyn attacks a 13-year-old boy (and her momma-bear First Lady Melania Trump who tries to protect her son) you demorats VICIOUSLY attack Melania.

This is to be expected from the “oh, so tolerant” left.

What petty, petty HYPOCRITES you are.

Lawsuit: San Francisco DA carried firearm on commercial flights, fired whistleblowers

SF DA George Gascon: Hypocrite and Bully

This is so typical of the political elite: Do As I Say, Not As I Do.

George Gascon is the demorat district attorney for San Francisco. He was appointed by fellow gun grabber Gavin Newsom in January 2011 to succeed gun-grabber Kamala Harris and was elected DA of San Francisco in November 2011.

He is also a rabid gun grabber.

In 2013, Gascon wrote a piece for Politico entitled, “Time to ban large gun clips.”

An excerpt from his piece proves he has mastered the fear-mongering, gun-grabber terminology: “These “assault magazines” are devices that hold more than 10 bullets. They were designed and manufactured for military use to allow soldiers to kill the maximum number of enemy combatants without reloading.”

He supports San Francisco’s latest stab at the Second Amendment which includes banning the possession of firearms at gatherings like parades or protests, even when they are relatively small.

Now SF Gate reports that the Gascon flew commercial while carrying a firearm and fired whistleblowers who reported his unlawful actions to TSA. From their report:

A former senior investigator says he was fired for blowing the whistle on his boss, San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón, who he alleged carried a gun while flying — in violation of federal law.

Gascón reacted with a “pattern of retaliation and harassment” that culminated in the termination of senior investigator Henry G. McKenzie on Oct. 30, 2017, according to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco.

In the Nov. 24 filing, McKenzie says that Gascón — who is also the city’s former police chief — took a gun on board commercial flights repeatedly after becoming D.A. in January 2012.

According to the suit, members of the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office Investigators Association, which included McKenzie, discussed the “need to blow the whistle” on Gascón’s potential criminal violations in early 2017.

Sometime that spring, an investigator in the district attorney’s office contacted the Transportation Security Administration to report Gascón’s alleged unlawful travel with a firearm.

“The issue is flying armed while not being a peace officer, and flying armed when there was no need to” for law enforcement purposes, McKenzie’s attorney, Fulvio Cajina, told us.

Under federal law, peace officers who are armed while traveling are required to state that they are doing so for good reason — a reason related to their work — under penalty of perjury. The investigators believed that, as district attorney, Gascón was no longer an active peace officer and had no need to travel with a gun.

In the months after the TSA was notified, five of the Investigators Association’s seven-member governing body were either terminated or reprimanded. In all, according to the suit, “nearly half of the district attorney’s investigative department — or about 14 staff members — “were either terminated or forced to resign under intense pressure within a five-month span,” the suit said.

At a Sept. 5, 2017, training day at the Lake Merced shooting range, Gascón allegedly told the entire investigations staff that “there was a ‘cancer’ growing in the Bureau of Investigations and he was going to cut it out,” according to the suit.

In what was described as a rant, Gascón told the group that if anyone was going to talk to The Chronicle’s Matier & Ross, “they better make sure they had their facts straight” and that he would “be around a lot longer than anyone else” at the bureau.

The next day, on Sept. 6, 2017, McKenzie says he was placed on administrative leave and that an internal affairs investigation was pending.

McKenzie alleges he was removed from his job because he “was either a whistle-blower or had aided a whistle-blower.”

He was fired the next month, and in late February, McKenzie’s termination was upheld by the D.A.’s office after an administrative review. McKenzie has since found a new job.

In the meantime, according to the lawsuit, “federal authorities have launched a criminal investigation into defendant Gascón.”

TSA spokeswoman Lorie Dankers declined comment, saying the agency “cannot provide any additional detail beyond what is in publicly available documents.”

Read the whole story here.


I wonder if this case has anything to do with Gascon choosing to not seek re-election. Being exposed as a flaming hypocrite and bully can certainly end one’s political career.

Kate Brown, the most transparent governor of Oregon?

Gov. Kate Brown: Can she #betransparent?

Kate Brown, the first openly bi-sexual demorat governor of Oregon, is up for re-election this November. She claims she “has already done more to improve transparency in state government than any other governor in Oregon’s history.”

Let’s take a look at her record, shall we?

According to a report from Forbes earlier this year, their audit of Gov. Brown revealed nearly 4,000 redacted items from her official state calendar. The governor redacted calendar entries on nine out of every ten days since taking office. In addition to these transparency issues, we found potential violations of Oregon state law regarding Brown’s credit card spending.

More from their report:

“The governor is flouting Oregon open records laws and blurring the line between the taxpayer-funded agency resources and her campaign activities. Furthermore, Brown used public funds for private purposes – during her time as secretary of state and as governor.

Now we’ve discovered systemic redactions from Brown’s calendar. Through Brown’s first 1,156 days as governor (February 2015 through April 2018), 994 days on her official calendar included redacted information. There are up to 14 line-item redactions per day.

Oregon State Law (ORS 192.355 Section 2a) allows redactions for information of a “personal nature” (i.e. doctor’s appointments). But in Brown’s calendar, there were nearly 4,000 items redacted, including names of people Brown met with, travel locations, campaign events, and even entire calendar days.

Brown’s calendar was packed with 500 events tagged as “campaign,” with further details redacted. When we asked the governor for comment, spokesperson Chris Pair cited a circuit court case – not a completely settled law – arguing the public has no right to know.”

Read their whole story here.

Guess what else Gov. Brown has done to improve transparency in state government? According to Oregon Live, she and the state agencies she oversees have kept proposed bills confidential while legislative lawyers draft legislation.

This is significant because how the state plans to pay for her policies in 2019, if re-elected, is not being made available to the voting citizens of her state before the November election. Fortunately, a judge in Marion County ordered that she release approximately 250 draft proposed bills by Friday.

More details from Oregon Live:

“Sarah Weston, a lawyer for the Oregon Department of Administrative Services, said the state plans to ask the Oregon Court of Appeals to halt the records release and reverse the Marion County court’s decision.

“The request forms are fundamentally a communication between the client and the client’s lawyer,” Weston said. She cited a statute that says legislative lawyers may draft bills requested by agencies, if the governor signs off on them.

In previous years, Portland business attorney Greg Chaimov – himself a former legislative lawyer – had asked for the agencies’ bill request forms and obtained them relatively quickly, according to his lawyer John DiLorenzo. The firm where Chaimov and DiLorenzo work, Davis Wright Tremaine, shares the information with its clients and friends free of charge, DiLorenzo said. Those entities often want to see what state officials are proposing so they can lobby against bills they dislike. In response to a reporter’s question, DiLorenzo confirmed that one of Chaimov’s clients is the business-allied political nonprofit Priority Oregon, which has been running attacks ads against Brown.  

This year, the governor’s office told Chaimov he would have to deal with the Department of Administrative Services, and that agency said it would not release the records because they were protected by attorney-client privilege.

The administrative department had also informed other state agencies in May that legislative concepts would “be temporally exempt from disclosure [under the Public Records Law] until Legislative Counsel has submitted bill drafts to the Governor’s Office for final approval (this should be done by November 30, 2018),” DiLorenzo wrote in a court filing. He noted that would be well after the election.

“Although it is expected that agencies will have discussed legislative concept ideas with stakeholders, agencies are directed to treat this document as confidential and privileged and, accordingly, not to share the text of this form outside of state government before legislation is drafted and finalized,” the department wrote, according to a court record.”

Prove that you are all for “transparency” Gov. Brown: Release the proposed bills before the November election. If you are so confident of your plans and policies, you should be quite proud to let the citizens of Oregon know how you plan to spend their hard-earned tax dollars!

Mets pitcher, a "Texan Republican," links hurricanes to US pulling out of Paris Climate Accord

noah snydergaard

Private Mets’ Delta jet (l) that pitcher Syndergaard (r) flies each season

I wonder how much carbon emissions this pitcher and his team emit while flying via their private Delta jet each season to play baseball? Hypocrite.
From Fox News: New York Mets star pitcher Noah Syndergaard tossed a curveball to Twitter fans late Monday, suggesting the number of deadly hurricanes that have ravaged the United States in recent weeks is “karma” for the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.
Syndergaard, 25, a starting pitcher for the Mets who has been on the disabled list since May, linked the spate of recent hurricanes – Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria – to President Trump’s June pullout from the Paris deal. On Saturday, a European Union official said the U.S. may be open to reviewing the terms of the accord, but National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster quickly shot down the “false report.”
“U.S. pulls out of Paris Climate Accord. Then hit by 4 hurricanes in 6 weeks. Global Warming Karma?” Syndergaard wrote, adding the hashtags: “I’m a Texan Republican” and “wake up.”
Syndergaard, nicknamed ‘Thor’ for his likeness to the fictional character due to flowing, blonde locks and a chiseled frame, tweeted later: “…..and I know Karma.”
To that post, he added the hashtag “take the MRI.” That tweet was an apparent dig at himself for refusing an MRI before he was scheduled to pitch on May 1. Syndergaard ended up injuring himself during the game, after which he was placed on the disabled list. He has yet to pitch in another major league game this season.
Social media users quickly responded to the pitcher’s climate change claim.
“Stick to baseball because weather obviously isn’t your strong point,” Rdsknsfan3 wrote.
“You just lost a lifetime Mets fan. Stick to pitching, if you can stay healthy for even one freaking season. Stupidity Karma?” MaximilianoNJ wrote.
Added LHVPundit: “Stick to what you know (baseball) and leave the science to scientists. Mets fans don’t care about where you stand on political issues.

More Libtard Butthurt: Chelsea Handler slams white female Trump voters in essay

Why isn’t this womyn living in Spain, as she promised to do if Trump was elected?

Chelsea Handler xxx

Chelsea Handler: Women should support this woman…or something.


From Fox News:  Chelsea Handler is facing heat for an essay she penned this week calling for women to come together and support each other.
However, in the same essay published by Thrive Global, Handler singles out white female voters who supported Donald Trump — a move that many are calling hypocritical.
Handler said there is a problem with “women supporting women” in the United States. “One of the saddest things about November 8,” she added, “were the women of America who somehow managed to vote for Donald Trump, specifically the 53 percent of all white female voters who chose Mr. Trump.”
Handler noted that America “is a free country, and we are free to differ on public policy” but “what kind of a woman votes for a white, entitled rich guy who has spent his entire life working the system for excess personal profit while insatiably groping strange women for personal pleasure.
The most qualified womyn...

The most qualified womyn…


She said it was especially frustrating because Hillary Clinton is “arguably the mostly qualified Presidential candidate in modern American history ” and would have “lift[ed] America up out of its 240-year ‘winning streak’ of male dominance and patriarchy.”
She also said that “94 percent of black women voted for Hillary Clinton, because unlike white women, black women don’t take their rights, liberties, or justice for granted.”
This womyn takes my ...

Chelsea gonna support this woman’s right that I don’t take for granted? Don’t hold your breath…

Who Said This?

Boys and girls, ladies and gents.

What time is it?

It’s “Who Said This?” time !!!

Does anyone know who said this?

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its  own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck  stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of  leadership. Americans deserve  better.”

Three guesses!


Are you ready?

Here’s the correct answer:

U.S. SENATOR BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, MARCH  2006

The (Catholic) Woman Newt Committed Adultery With

Oh, what a web we mortals weave, etc. etc.

In the mid-1990s, while he was Speaker of the House and married to wife no. 2, Marianne Ginther, Newt Gingrich had an affair with a 23-years-younger House of Representatives staffer named Callista Bisek. In 2000, Newt married Callista shortly after divorcing Marianne.

But don’t be too sorry for Marianne. She herself was the other woman involved in an adulterous affair with the Newt when he was still married to wife no. 1, Jackie Battley! It was Battley who claimed that she was in her hospital bed recovering from surgery when Newt said he wanted a divorce. [Source: wiki]

This is what the husband-stealer, Callista, “a lifelong Catholic” (!), looks like:

Yikes! Can that hair get more blindingly platinum? S.O.S., L'Oreal!

Betcha those rocks around flaxen-haired Callista’s neck are part of the $500,000 (half a million bucks!) debt Newt — who preaches fiscal discipline for America — has with Tiffany’s.

Callista is also a reason for Newt’s senior staff quitting en masse yesterday. They told the UK’s Daily Mail that they quit because:

  • Newt did not take his presidential campaign seriously;
  • He was lazy and refused to do the hard work of grassroot campaigning, preferring instead to rely on social media; and
  • After his disastrous sniping at fellow Republican Paul Ryan’s budget plan, instead of working to put out the flames he himself had started, Newt and wife Callista took a two-week vacation, in defiance of his staff.

Hey, “lifelong Catholic” Callista and “newly converted to Catholicism” Newt: Ever heard of the 7th Commandment?

ManBearPig and the Big Freeze


This astonishing picture shows the world as it is today – with half the Northern Hemisphere covered with snow and ice.
The image was released by the National Oceanic And Atmospheric Association (NOAA) on the day half of North America is in the grip of a severe winter storm. The map was created using multiple satellites from government agencies and the US Air Force.
The shroud of white stretches down from Alaska and sweeps through the Midwest and along to the Eastern seaboard. The bitter cold has reached as far as Texas and northern Mexico where in Ciudad Juarez temperatures today were expected to dip to minus 15C. Tens of millions of people chose to stay at home rather than venture out. In Chicago, 20in of snow fell leading to authorities closing schools for the first time in 12 years. The newspaper for Tulsa, Okalahoma, was unable to publish its print edition for the first time in more than a century. [Source: Daily Mail]
But never fear, boys and girls. Al Gore is here!
He insists on his blog that “increased heavy snowfalls are completely consistent with what they have been predicting as a consequence of manbearpig man-made global warming.”
This is the same Gore who once proclaimed in a CNN “Late Edition” interview with Wolf Blitzer that “During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.” The same Gore whose new energy-wasting mansion (his 4th) in Montecito, Calif., has 6,500 square feet of living space and a swimming pool and fountains. His energy-wasting Nashville home is 10,000 square feet. The same Gore who had a net worth of a mere $1-2 million in 2000, but quickly fattened to an estimated $120 million by 2008 from his many global warming scams, such as an Academy Award and a Nobel Peace Prize no less.
Hmm, let me see if I got it right:

  • If there’s increased heavy snowfalls, it’s man-made manbearpig global warming!
  • If it’s an unexpectedly warm and dry winter, it’s man-made manbearpig global warming!
  • If summer is beastly hot, it’s man-made manbearpig global warming!
  • If summer is unseasonably cool, it’s man-made manbearpig global warming!

In other words, the same cause can lead to entirely opposite results! Which means the “science” of man-made manbearpig global warming can and will never be proven wrong. Pure genius.
My looney-left friend Stephanie got it right all along 30 years ago:

“Don’t confuse me with facts! I’ve made up my mind!”
