Ageist: Rosie O’Donnell calls for senior GOP politicians to retire

From Fox News: Rosie O’Donnell took to Twitter to mock the age of prominent Republicans, calling on Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, to retire – despite lefty leaders being the same age.

“Grassley and hatch – too old – they should be done – come on – at thanksgiving we don’t let the 85 year olds carve the turkey #retire,” O’Donnell tweeted.

Hatch, the Senate president pro tempore and third in the presidential line of succession behind Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Grassley are two of the GOP’s most prominent members. Many Hollywood liberals, including O’Donnell, are currently upset that many Republicans continue to support Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh amid sexual harassment allegations.

Grassley is 85, while Hatch is 84 years old. But several prominent Democrats are in the same age range. Liberal icons Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Dianne Feinstein are both 85, Maxine Waters is 80, Nancy Pelosi is 78 and Bernie Sanders is a spry 77 years old.

A 2014 Gallup poll showed the average retirement age is 62.

O’Donnell, 56, has a decades-old feud with President Trump and she has been an outspoken critic of his administration. Some of her followers were offended by her call for the older Republicans to retire.

I hate to bring this up but discriminating against someone because of their age is just as wrong as any other form of discrimination. Their behavior was the same decades ago. Approaching 70 myself, I’ll match wits with you any time you’d like,” one user wrote.

“Not cool,” another follower added. “Plenty of 85 year old people are as sharp as ever.”

Just last year, CNN published a story headlined, “The Democratic Party has an age problem,” that noted the ongoing problem with the advanced age of some liberal leaders.

“Democratic leaders across both the legislative and executive branches are generally older than leadership on the other side of the aisle,” CNN’s Ryan Struyk wrote before noting the average age of Democrats on Capitol Hill was 61, while the average Republican was 57.2 years old.

Seek professional help: Writer/director Joss Whedon wishes President Trump would "just quietly die"

joss whedon tweet
Joss Whedon is a Hollyweird proggie worth $100 million. His claim to fame is being a writer for “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” TV show and some “Avengers” movies.
Because he’s a liberal, Joss is “welcoming to everyone,” does not have a small mind, and has “given more to the population of the United States than any other group.”
WRONG.
Whedon tweeted out the above on April 3. (Update: From what I can see on his Twitter timeline on Thursday night, the COWARD deleted the tweet.)
Any wonder why we say liberalism is a mental disorder?

Celebrities call for gun control in wake of Vegas shooting

celebrities and gun control
All these tweets came before all the details of the shooting, including weapons used, was even known. But they must push their gun control narrative.
Until these fools name a specific gun control law that isn’t on the books already (such as the Hughes Amendment) that would have prevented this shooting, I’m going to assume they are speaking out of their butts.
From Yahoo: In the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history — a gunman firing on concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday and killing at least 58 people — celebrities are among the many fed-up Americans calling for better gun control laws.
Lady Gaga was one of the many to speak out on social media on Monday, declaring suspected gunman Stephen Paddock’s shooting spree an act of “terrorism, plain and simple” and asking “Democrats and Republicans” to “unite now” on gun control.
In one post, she called out President Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan directly, saying that “blood is on the hands of those who have the power to legislate.”
The singer also announced she’ll be holding a 20-minute “meditation/silence/prayer” later today on Instagram to provide some peace amid the chaos of the world.
Ariana Grande, whose Manchester, England, concert venue was the scene of another horrific mass shooting just months ago, also shared her thoughts. “My heart is breaking for Las Vegas,” wrote the singer. “We need love, unity, peace, gun control & for people to look at this & call this what it is = terrorism.”
Julianne Moore has long been an outspoken advocate for gun violence awareness and she spoke out again today. “Today we mourn for Las Vegas, tomorrow we fight for them,” she wrote, while encouraging “everyone join the movement to end gun violence.”
Emmy Rossum, who described herself as “heartbroken” over the news, took to Twitter to tell her followers that prayers aren’t enough. She also demanded action from politicians and urged people to do the same. “I believe in prayer, but it’s not enough by itself,” she noted in one of several tweets on the topic. “We need better LAWS. In no world does a CIVILIAN need a MACHINE GUN. Let’s fix this.”
Jessica Chastain described it as “shameful that this keeps happening.”
Billy Eichner of Billy on the Street fame wasn’t mincing words either. He tweeted, “GUN CONTROL NOW. ENOUGH ALREADY. GROW THE FUCK UP. THE AVERAGE PERSON DOESN’T NEED A FUCKING MACHINE GUN. ENOUGH ALREADY. ENOUGH. ENOUGH.”
He also tweeted, “AND DON’T TALK ABOUT THE 2ND AMENDMFNT. THEY WEREN’T TALKING ABOUT AUTOMATIC WEAPONS & ANYONE WHO SAYS THAT NONSENSE IS ENABLING MASS MURDER.”

Female House Democrats defy patriarchy with sleeveless Friday

With all the problems in America and the world, female Democrats in the House of Representatives showed their defiance of the oppressive patriarchy by baring their arms yesterday, declaring Fridays henceforth to be sleeveless.

The U.S. House of Representatives has a dress code for House chambers of suit-and-tie for men and sleeves and no open-toed shoes for women.
Some of the female representatives tweeted their decisive blow against male patriarchy:

Hank Berrien reports for The Daily Wire, July 14, 2017:

The brouhaha over the dress code was triggered when Weekly Standard reporter Jenna Lifhits tried to use paper from her notebook as a way to cover up her shoulders, but was refused entrance to the House chambers. Independent Journal Review reporter Haley Byrd was ejected from the Speaker’s lobby for wearing a sleeveless dress.
On Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan indicated he would ask the sergeant-at-arms to modernize the dress code that also includes requiring men to wear a suit and tie in both the Speaker’s lobby and House chamber.
The celebration over the defiant escape to freedom from the patriarchy now will be etched in history alongside other historic moments such as the 1963 Martin Luther King-led March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Next on the Democrat women’s agenda:

Hairy Armpit Friday!

Because shaving women’s armpits is submission to the oppressive male patriarchy.

Hollywood director demeans teenage cancer-survivors’ looks to take shot at Republicans

joss-whedon
You own this piece of scum libtards.
From Washington Times: Hollywood producer-director Joss Whedon judged a group of teenage cancer survivors according to their (lack of) sexual attractiveness in order to take a shot at Republicans.
Mr. Whedon tweeted out a picture of House Speaker Paul D. Ryan meeting some teenagers and said they didn’t measure up in the attractiveness department.
“Tonight on White House Wife Hunt, Donny makes host P. Ryan give 2 more contestants the ‘Not a 10’ card,” tweeted Mr. Whedon, best known as the creator of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly” and other TV shows and as the director of two “Avengers” movies.
According to Mr. Ryan, who had tweeted out the same picture, the girls were Wisconsin teenagers who “shared some powerful stories with me about their fight against childhood cancer.”
Numerous users on Twitter quickly pounced on Mr. Whedon’s remarks about the girls’ looks, calling them cruel, sexist and more. “The epitome of misogyny right here. Take a bow, bro,: said female Twitter user “Grace Under Pressure.”
Read the rest of the story here.
Joss has since deleted the tweet and offered some lame “apology:” “So I tweeted something that inadvertently offended everyone except the people I was trying to offend. I’m sorry. I’ll be quiet for a bit.”
What a deplorable man.

The liberal in bed with Paul Ryan

janna-and-paul-ryan
Geoff Ross writes for Dr. Rich Swier, May 18, 2016, that marriage is “a team effort” and that of House Speaker Paul Ryan is no different:

“A solid marriage will have the man supporting the wife’s decision’s and vice versa.
So if you are scratching your head and rubbing your rabbit foot in an expression of confusion and lack of understanding of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and his blatant liberal agenda and decision making processes all you have to do is look into his family unit. Then you will learn that he supporting [sic] his wife’s ideology. As a man should and probably to remain in good graces in a supportive marriage.
Paul Ryan is married to Janna Little a liberal, left wing progressive, anti-Constitutional, big government George Soros supporter who voted for Barack Hussein Obama twice.”

From Stephanie Dube Dwilson’s October 2015 column for Heavy.com, “Janna Ryan, Paul’s Wife: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know”:

Janna comes from a Democratic family. Her cousin, Dan Boren, was a Democratic Representative for Oklahoma from 2005 to 2013. Dan’s father, David Boren, was the 21st governor of Oklahoma from 1975 to 1979. Dan’s grandfather, Lyle Boren, was a Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1937 to 1947. Janna’s grandfather, Reuel Little, helped found a third party called the American Party in Oklahoma in 1968. He ran for governor in 1970 but didn’t win, ABC News reported.
Janna herself has lobbied for liberal movements, such as marching in Washington in college for women’s rights, The New York Times reported. Janna rarely gives interviews, CNN reported, and doesn’t speak publicly about her political views.”

From a New York Times report of August 23, 2012, after Paul Ryan was selected by Mitt Romney to be his VP running-mate:

Friends say Mrs. Ryan chose her political life’s path with a sense of purpose, and they describe her as being a “practical conservative” these days, even if she might once have been more of a Democrat. […]
She is not, however, someone who has shied away from asserting herself. Mrs. Ryan is a lawyer and a tax specialist who, before her marriage, worked for prestigious government affairs and accounting firms as a lobbyist, representing some of the biggest names in a range of industries, including Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Novartis and Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America. […]
Mrs. Ryan’s professors [at Wellesley] described her as being interested in social justice and the broader world around her. […]
“I didn’t get the sense that she was a political activist,” said Professor Renjilian-Burgy, who wrote Mrs. Ryan’s recommendation to study abroad. But when it came to topics like the history and treatment of indigenous peoples around the world, Professor Renjilian-Burgy said, “she was very sensitive to these issues.”

According to the New York Times, in 2011 the Ryans had assets valued at between $2 million and $7.8 million, “much of which is in Mrs. Ryan’s trust.”
daneeta-pope-paul-ryan
Ryan’s girlfriend before he married Janna Little is also a Democrat — a black woman named Daneeta Pope who also had twice voted for Obama.
According to Daily Mail, Daneeta Pope had spent 5 months in prison for defrauding her employer Ernst & Young out of $77,000 in 1999, according to the federal Bureau of Prisons. Pope said she used the funds to attend an educational course — which did not exist. Paul Ryan has stayed in touch with Pope over the two decades since they broke up, including attending her wedding in May 2012.
Geoff Ross concludes:

“Speaker Paul Ryan will not operate his family unit and make decisions that will cause friction and go against the will of his wife.
So if you want to understand why Speaker Ryan funded Obamacare and Planned Parent Hood, I suggest you ask his wife. She is wearing the pants in the family metaphorically speaking. In my humble opinion.
If you want to know why Paul Ryan is using taxpayer money to fund 100,000 un-vetted Syrians for a free taxpayer funded ride in cities across the United States ask his wife…. the bleeding heart liberal that she is. She is pro-open borders.
Paul Ryan’s decisions and thought processes are a reflection of his spouse’s mindset. Mrs. Ryan is a life long Democrat who is pushing Obama’s agenda through her husband. And of course a happy life is a happy wife. […]
Paul Ryan is not a conservative my friends… if he was he would never have married Jenna Little. […] Speaker Paul Ryan is a Charlie Crist Republican, who is perhaps being manipulated by a Liberal wife. […] Politics makes for strange bedfellows, in this case it is Janna and Paul Ryan.”

See moral high-horse Anderson Cooper dry-humped by Madonna

At the second 2016 presidential debate last Sunday night, CNN’s Anderson Cooper got on the moral high horse.
With his prissy lips pursed, Cooper sternly and repeatedly demanded that Donald Trump admit he’d sexually assaulted women, based on what Trump said about wanting to kiss beautiful women in that “p*ssy tape” that Paul Ryan’s advisor, Dan Senor, so helpfully leaked to the Washington Post.

See “GOP stabs Trump in back: Ryan advisor leaked ‘p*ssy’ tape; voter registration drives sabotaged

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BEieHKxiaE
Tsk, tsk, Anderson Cooper.
The moral high horse really doesn’t suit you, given your cavorts on stage with Madonna as her bitch, being spanked and dry-humped by that demon-possessed woman.

As Clash Daily puts it:

Don’t you just love it when the left gets self-righteous? Isn’t it a hoot?
These are the same people that tell us that:

  • There is no such thing as sin
  • Morality is relative
  • Sex is the be-all, end-all of existence
  • Killing unborn children is TOTALLY okay

But, then again, tolerance only extends to those that they agree with.
If you disagree, you’re ‘intolerant’ and some sort of ‘-phobic’. […] Hey, Anderson! Maybe you shouldn’t be so ‘judgy’.

By the way, Anderson Cooper, it’s now more than two years since Professor James Tracy sent you an invitation via certified mail, to revisit Newtown. You had publicly attacked Tracy for his skepticism about the official Sandy Hook narrative. You even endangered his safety, and the safety of his wife and four young children, by disclosing their home address.
Shame on you.
See:

UPDATE:

Anderson Cooper was also given a dry BJ by so-called comedienne Kathy Griffin on CNN’s live New Year’s Eve broadcast on December 31, 2012.

GOP stabs Trump in back: Ryan advisor leaked 'p*ssy' tape; voter registration drives sabotaged

Last Friday, Oct. 7, 2016, someone leaked a tape to the Washington Post of a supposedly private conversation from 11 years ago between Donald Trump and Access Hollywood‘s anchor, Billy Bush, a nephew of former president George H.W. Bush.

See “BETRAYAL: Republican former Pres. George H.W. Bush will vote for Hillary Clinton

In that supposedly private conversation, Trump made lewd “locker-room” guy talk with words like “pussy,” about his failed attempt to bed a married woman. At the time of the conversation, Trump had been married to Melania for only 3 months.
Well, it turns out that the audio had been edited to give the impression that Trump was being adulterous in his attempt to seduce the woman. Edited out of the audio was Trump saying that the incident with the married woman had taken place when he was a single man.
Even worse than the artful and malicious editing is the source of the leak.
Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Jr. was the first to suggest that GOP elites may have leaked the tape to Washington Post. Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit confirmed that GOP elites indeed had leaked the damaging “pussy audio”:

“I spoke with a reporter tonight who believes the reports are true. It was GOP elites who released the audio to the Washington Post.”

donald-trump-and-paul-ryan
Independent journalist Mike Cernovich identified the source of the leak as Daniel “Dan” Samuel Senor, a close advisor to House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Wikipedia describes Dan Senor, 44, as:

“an American columnist, writer, and political adviser. He was chief spokesman for the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq and senior foreign policy adviser to U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney during the 2012 election campaign. A frequent commentator on Fox News and contributor to The Wall Street Journal, he is co-author of the book Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle (2009).”

Henry Makow describes Dan Senor’s career as:

“a textbook example of how to succeed by serving the Illuminati bankers’ Zionist Division which includes Israel, the US and Western Europe. […] Caught the eye of Neo Con boss William Kristol who famously said the Iraq war was conceived by 25 Jewish intellectuals in Washington.
Worked for the Carlyle Group , the tenth biggest defense contractor in the world, which specializes in starting the wars that may require its products. It hires retired politicians like GHW Bush who are able to get funding for weapons even if the Pentagon doesn’t want them.”

Guess to whom Senor is married?
Journalist Campbell Brown, 48, a former CNN host and NBC anchorwoman who now writes op/eds for publications like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily Beast and Slate. In 2014, Bill Kristol, the anti-Trump editor of the supposedly conservative Weekly Standard, proposed that Brown run for Democratic New York senator Charles Schumer’s Senate seat.
dan-senor-campbell-brown
Here’s Campbell Brown admitting that her husband, Dan Senor, had leaked the “pussy tape”. She actually calls Senor’s betrayal “fun”:
campbell-brown-tweet-admits-dan-senor-leaked-pussy-tapeWiki identifies the “religion” of both Dan Senor and Campbell Brown as “Judaism”.

See “Jewish Anti-Defamation League says Trump’s ‘America First’ is anti-Semitic

The GOP’s sabotage of Trump’s campaign isn’t confined to leaking the “p*ssy tape”. According to Mike Cernovich:

Donald Trump’s get out the vote efforts have been sabotaged at every level by the GOP, sources report exclusively to this reporter. Some of the sabotage is obvious and clear, and others is more subtle. Their motivations for sabotage vary from personal and professional jealousy to financial.

Cernovich describes two ways in which the GOP is sabotaging Trump’s voter registration drives:

  1. Bait-and-switch: Cernovich says that Trump volunteers have told him that when they went to their local GOP office to get out the vote, they were told to campaign for other GOP candidates. When the volunteers say they wanted to campaign for Trump, they were told to leave.
  2. The big ignore: Other Trump volunteers said they’d show up to GOP offices only to find the doors had been locked. Their calls would go unreturned. All of which made it impossible to volunteer to get out the vote for Donald Trump.

Journalist Mike Tracey said that the GOP headquarters in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania was closed on a Sunday – a huge day for voter registration efforts. A concerned GOP operative warned that “Trump will not win PA unless drastic change is made.
In Florida, voter registration data show that Democrats are walloping Republicans. The Florida Democratic Party has submitted about 488,000 voter-registration forms it has collected for this election, while Republicans have submitted only about 60,000.
According to Cernovich, the GOP was sabotaging Trump’s efforts even well before the leak of the infamous “p*ssy tape”:

The GOP’s plan was to lose Pennsylvania, Florida, and Ohio. Then the “hit mic” video gave them an excuse to make their sabotage public. The “hot mic” video had no effect on voter sentiment, but it did give the saboteurs an excuse to publicly renounce Trump. Local offices were shut down, and Senators and Congressmen and other Republicans were told that endorsing Trump would lead to funding being cut off.

The GOP is committing suicide.
polls_GOP_Suicide_4337_123568_poll_xlargeAlready, according to Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson, her phone is inundated with text messages from all over the country of people voting for Trump but not necessarily voting for other Republicans who are up for election/reelection.
katrina-pierson-tweet
By sabotaging Trump, Paul Ryan, a Catholic who claims to be pro-life, and other GOP elites not only are ensuring that Hillary Clinton  — who is not just pro-abortion, but favors late-term abortion — is elected to the White House, they are signing the death sentence of their party.
I say: “Good riddance”.

GOP's War on Trump: Colorado gives all delegates to Ted Cruz without voting

polls_GOP_Suicide_4337_123568_poll_xlarge
Joe Kovacs reports for WND, April 10, 2016, that last weekend, Ted Cruz swept all of Colorado’s 34 delegates without any votes being cast by citizens in a traditional primary process.
The Colorado GOP made its intent very clear in a tweet:
Colorado GOP tweet
Appearing on “Fox & Friends” this morning, Donald Trump said:

“I’ve gotten millions … of more votes than [Sen. Ted] Cruz, and I’ve gotten hundreds of delegates more, and we keep fighting, fighting, fighting, and then you have a Colorado where they just get all of these delegates, and it’s not [even] a system. There was no voting. I didn’t go out there to make a speech or anything. There’s no voting. They offer them [the delegates] trips — they offer them all sorts of things, and you’re allowed to do that. I mean, you’re allowed to offer trips, and you can buy all these votes. What kind of a system is this? Now, I’m an outsider, and I came into the system and I’m winning the votes by millions of votes. But the system is rigged. It’s crooked.

It was last August when officials with the Republican Party in Colorado decided they would not let voters take part in the early nomination process. The Denver Post reported on August 25, 2015, that “The GOP executive committee has voted to cancel the traditional presidential preference poll after the national party changed its rules to require a state’s delegates to support the candidate that wins the caucus vote.” Ryan Call, a former state GOP chairman, told the paper, “It takes Colorado completely off the map” in the primary season.
In late February this year, just before Super Tuesday, the Post published a scathing editorial, saying “GOP leaders have never provided a satisfactory reason for forgoing a presidential preference poll, although party chairman Steve House suggested on radio at one point that too many Republicans would otherwise flock to their local caucus. Imagine that: party officials fearing that an interesting race might propel thousands of additional citizens to participate. But of course that might dilute the influence of elites and insiders. You can see why that could upset the faint-hearted.”
A Trump supporter named Larry Wayne Lindsey took to YouTube yesterday to express his displeasure with the process and burned his Republican registration on camera. He said, as he torched his party registration, “Republican Party, take note. I think you’re gonna see a whole lot more of these. I’ve been a Republican all my life, but I will never be a Republican again. You’ve had it. You’re done. You’re toast. Because I quit the party. I’m voting for Trump, and to hell with the Republican Party.”
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJT_Zbu6LcE]
Meanwhile, House Speaker and former Republican VP nominee Paul Ryan is positioning himself to be the party’s nominee at a brokered Republican convention in Ohio this July.
Jennifer Steinhauer reports for The New York Times, April 10, 2016, that Ryan’s behaviors that are fueling rumors of a coup at the Republican convention which would elevate him to the top of the ticket, include:

  • Foreign trips, such as visiting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel, where he also met with local reporters and made several statements affirming the United States’ commitment there; and visits to other Middle Eastern countries and Germany to discuss security and intelligence issues.
  • Ryan’s staff in Washington churning flattering videos of him deploring identity politics and promoting a battle of ideas — set to campaign-style music.
  • Without calling it a presidential campaign, Ryan launched a national campaign called “Confident America“.

Peter Wehner, a former director of the White House Office of Strategic Initiatives under President George W. Bush who has known Ryan for two decades, said, “There is no question that Ryan is operating in a very ambitious way. He is trying to set forth a path for the party with ideas and policy proposals and principles. That is unusual for a speaker in an election year.”
Paul Ryan became House Speaker late last year.
What the New York Times left out (and seemingly does not know) is that in January, Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney had filed their intention to run for the presidency with the Federal Election Commission.
Lastly, in another sign that the GOP is dead set against Trump, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen reports today that GOP strategist Karl Rove, who had backed the aborted campaign of former Florida governor Jeb Bush, is doing his utmost to deny the GOP nomination to Donald Trump by providing campaign advice for Republican Ted Cruz and Democrat Hillary Clinton. Madsen writes:

By backing Cruz, Rove hopes to generate a brokered Republican convention in Cleveland, one that will turn to a “fresh face” to challenge Mrs. Clinton in the general election. As an insurance policy against a Trump presidency, Rove, according to our sources, is also providing advice to the Clinton campaign via the auspices of Clinton loyalist and Democratic strategist James Carville, who has become a friend of Rove. Carville is married to GOP strategist and pundit Mary Matalin.
