Truth HURTS! Iowahawk SKEWERS Gavin Newsom’s chest-thumping about California’s ‘Revolution’

Wed, 04/18/2018 - 23:32

Early this morning, Donald Trump tweeted about a “Revolution” brewing in California:

There is a Revolution going on in California. Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy. Want Security & Safety NOW!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 18, 2018

Which prompted California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom to thump his own chest and tout the Revolution that he’s seeing:

There is a Revolution going on in California. Soooo many cities want OUT of Trump's ridiculous & xenophobic policies. Jerry Brown is trying to defend CA's values, but the people of the Trump Administration are not happy. Want restoration of commonsense policies and decency NOW! https://t.co/Krj14wuEIO

— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) April 18, 2018

Newsom’s rebuttal might carry a little more weight if he weren’t trying to defend California. It’s not exactly heaven on earth, as Iowahawk helpfully pointed out:

PRIORITIES! Dem’s reason for opposing Mike Pompeo as SecState sends heads to desks (but PP & NARAL LOVE it!)

Wed, 04/18/2018 - 22:07

CIA Director Mike Pompeo has been nominated by President Trump to be the next Secretary of State. Among the Democrats opposed is Sen. Jeanne Sheehan, who gave these reasons:

I cannot support Director Mike Pompeo’s nomination to serve as Secretary of State. My statement: pic.twitter.com/F9U3tMDWGR

— Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (@SenatorShaheen) April 17, 2018

Is Pompeo up for the Secretary of State job, or to be the next president of Planned Parenthood?

Wow… Shaheen to oppose Pompeo for CIA director because he is against murdering babies. https://t.co/kRGLBgquJU

— Steve Milloy (@JunkScience) April 18, 2018

Yeah, basically. And then some:

Correct me if I'm wrong: I don't see anything that states the Sec. of State deals in domestic social policy. @SenatorShaheen it appears your disagreements has nothing to do with the actual job description. Again, correct me if I'm wrong. #Intolerance https://t.co/0K24j1MTUO https://t.co/L5UJqZZn6p

Their disgusting intolerance knows no bounds. These people have ZERO integrity, ethics, class, self respect OR respect for the American people. https://t.co/MtLGFAt2Gd

— Stubbornly Me. (@lybr3) April 18, 2018

But, as you might guess, Planned Parenthood & NARAL are totally on board with an abortion litmus test for Secretary of State nominees:

Thank you, @SenatorShaheen, for standing up for women, LGBTQ, and Muslim communities! We need a secretary of state who protects #humanrights — not tramples them. #StopPompeo https://t.co/liEdtho58u

— Planned Parenthood Action (@PPact) April 18, 2018

We share @SenatorShaheen's deep concerns about Mike Pompeo and appreciate her leadership in speaking out publicly on her "no" vote to #StopPompeo.

Thank you @SenatorShaheen! https://t.co/P4RVZ6a19e

Popehat offers free advice to the dolt who wants to sue Twitchy for ‘reckless libel’

Wed, 04/18/2018 - 21:56

As Twitchy told you, blue-checked bozo Nathan Bernard is threatening action — “legal and otherwise” — against us. Yesterday, we published a post featuring his tweet blaming Ben Shapiro, among others, for a shooting at a Quebec City mosque. And in his mind, that makes us guilty of “reckless libel.” Because words are hard.

Needless to say, Bernard got dragged real good for his litigious huffpuffery. And if he wants to avoid getting raked over any more coals, he would be wise to take this advice from legal expert Popehat:

No.

Just . . . no.

Don't be a buffoon.

— TheNewNormalHat (@Popehat) April 18, 2018

Come on, Nathan.

Oh dear god.

— Mike "Ha-Ha is for Hannity" Lane (@GojirasGhost) April 18, 2018

Pretty sure he's not going to take your advice here.

— Physics Geek (@physicsgeek) April 18, 2018

It’s obviously too late for him not to be a buffoon, but he’s still got time to turn that lawsuit car around.

CNN’s Dana Bash high on Nikki Haley’s ‘I don’t get confused’ quote, Matthew Dowd not so much

Wed, 04/18/2018 - 21:45

As Twitchy reported Tuesday, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley spit hot fire after White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow suggested she might have been suffering from some “momentary confusion” with regard to the status of sanctions against Russia.

“With all due respect, I don’t get confused,” Haley fired back in a statement, prompting an apology from Kudlow, who explained, “the policy was changed and she wasn’t told about it, so she was in a box.”

CNN’s Dana Bash admitted she was a little late getting around to praising Haley’s statement, but she considers it “one of the best by a female leader.”

I know it was like 12 news cycles ago at this point, but @nikkihaley quote "With all due respect, I don't get confused" should go down as one of the best by a female leader. Ever. Said so much, with so few words.

MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace agreed with Bash:

National scold Matthew Dowd would like Wallace and company to put to rest any ideas of Haley running for president in 2020, though; Trump is just too popular.

Reality time: At this moment, no one can beat President Trump in a GOP primary battle. The GOP base loves Trump. He has an 85% approval rating among GOP voters. He is the most popular person among GOP voters. Let’s stop with the Haley talk. @NicolleDWallace

— Matthew Dowd (@matthewjdowd) April 18, 2018

No, let’s keep going with the Haley talk — the Haley 2024 talk, to be more precise.

Hope springs eternal my love. #idontgetconfused https://t.co/QycdHuBntY

— Nicolle Wallace (@NicolleDWallace) April 18, 2018

(By the way, any advice today from Dowd for the Dems on newly announced 2020 prospect Eric Holder? How’s that primary shaping up?)

Protesters voice displeasure at border wall construction site (from Mexico side) during DHS secretary’s visit [photos]

Wed, 04/18/2018 - 20:43

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen visited a border wall construction site in Calexico, California today:

During the visit, a few dozen protesters on the Mexico side voiced their displeasure:

Texas State student pens ‘racist nonsense’ about black conservative Antonia Okafor

Tue, 04/17/2018 - 22:28

It takes some serious wokeness to denounce conservative “tokenism” by spewing racism, but SJWs are always up to the challenge.

Texas State public relations senior Temi Ikudayisi seems to have a problem with black conservative and Second Amendment advocate Antonia Okafor being invited by the college’s Turning Point USA chapter to speak on campus, so Ikudayisi hiked up those SJW pants and banged out this piece of hot garbage for the University Star, Texas State’s “independent student newspaper”:

When you are a student of color and you are a vocal conservative, you will be attacked as a “token”

This is a horribly racist statement published in the @TxStateBobcats student newspaper

Appears @txst is making us anything but proud once again, some how the faculty can’t get control of the continued racism. They want to discount a strong, educated & well spoken guest speaker @antonia_okafor as a “token” minority who is pro #2A. @txsttpusa fight the good fight! https://t.co/V0EAUVpNVc

— Austin Talley (@Austinfor45) April 17, 2018

Here’s what Okafor had to say:

The good thing is that next time a Texas State professor’s giving a lesson on racism, all he or she needs to do is hold up that piece as a perfect example.

And that is the "tolerant" and "compassionate" crowd.

— Michael (@Michael2014abc) April 17, 2018

— TPUSA at Texas State (@txsttpusa) April 17, 2018

The racism that was shown in the @UniversityStar article that calls Antonia Okafor a “token” is obvious to everyone but those that preach “diversity” the most on our campus. https://t.co/Jibef1mUlp

— TPUSA at Texas State (@txsttpusa) April 17, 2018

Ironically this piece is based in actual racism and prejudice. The author judges Antonia on her skin color rather than the merits of her arguments. This is unmasked every time a member of a minority group wakes up to Leftist dogma… https://t.co/w3zwWXp9fE

As Twitchy told you earlier, the IRS’ website went down in spectacular fashion. On Tax Day, of course. They deserve every kick and punch of the beating that they’re getting. But Politico seems to think people are being too hard on them. Well, not people, per se … just Republicans:

‘You can do anything’: Watch cancer survivor Mary Shertenlieb finish the Boston Marathon at 1AM

Meet Mary Shertenlieb, cancer survivor. Mary used yesterday’s Boston Marathon to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, whom she credits with saving her life:

On doctor’s orders, Mary paused her race at the 15.5 mile mark after she began to “shiver uncontrollably.” Here she is with her husband at Dunkin Donuts to get warm:

IT’S HAPPENING: MSNBC’s Ari Melber DROP KICKS James Comey over his impeachment comment

Tue, 04/17/2018 - 14:01

As we told you on Sunday, probably the most newsworthy part of James Comey’s interview with Clinton hack George Stephanopoulos was when the former FBI director said that President Donald Trump should not be impeached and that the voters should ultimately decide his fate.

Here’s the clip again ICYMI:

James Comey: Trump shouldn't be impeached. He should be voted out. pic.twitter.com/xooLsROoNL

— Axios (@axios) April 16, 2018

We predicted that this wouldn’t go over very well with the Left, and we’re starting to see some pushback.

Here’s MSNBC’s Ari Melber with the metaphorical drop kick:

Bob Mueller's probe is far from complete, but James Comey is now prejudging the outcome and potential response. It's like 2016, but for 2018. https://t.co/f8a8xw6pcv

— Ari Melber (@AriMelber) April 17, 2018

Watch Melber’s segment here where he criticizes Comey for, once again, “inserting himself in an open probe without all the facts”:

By ruling out potential “impeachment” before Mueller even finishes his investigation, James Comey is again inserting himself in an open probe without all the facts.

Ari Melber’s special report:https://t.co/B8kqidgNm2

— TheBeat w/Ari Melber (@TheBeatWithAri) April 17, 2018

Melber is correct here. As a law enforcement officer, why would Comey care about the politics of it at all?

‘WTF’? Protesters at Philly Starbucks show how NOT to win hearts and minds [pic]

Mon, 04/16/2018 - 20:31

Last week, Starbucks found themselves in scalding-hot water after the manager of a Philadelphia store called the police on two black men.

More from ABC News:

The arrests of the men were captured on video and tweeted by Melissa DePino, a 50-year-old mother of two who told ABC News she has vowed not to patronize Starbucks again. The video has since been viewed more than 9 million times.

“It was humiliating for those guys,” DePino said. “They were completely minding their own business.”

Both men were later released and the charges they were facing — trespassing and disturbance — were dropped Thursday night.

The manager has since lost his job, and Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson has apologized, accepted responsibility, and offered to meet with the two men. But the mob is still not satisfied. Today, protesters descended upon the store to continue their crusade to … we’re not exactly sure:

SLACKTIVISM! Alyssa Milano shakes fist at Trump over welfare, runs into the BOSS of all reality checks

Mon, 04/16/2018 - 17:19

Trump signed an Executive Order that encourages people receiving government benefits to work and eventually stop cyclical dependence on handouts and poverty. Yeah, Democrats will pretend he’s targeting the poor but don’t buy into that; people who depend on the government for their basic needs are never really free, and like Republicans, Trump understands that.

Trump quietly targets Medicaid, food stamp recipients with sweeping welfare overhaul https://t.co/zbiXPKOfRN pic.twitter.com/v6ixPpp24H

— The Hill (@thehill) April 15, 2018

Quietly targets.

GMAFB.

From The Hill:

… a sweeping executive order that was quietly issued earlier this week — and that largely flew under the radar.

It calls on the Departments of Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Agriculture and other agencies across the federal government to craft new rules requiring that beneficiaries of a host of programs work or lose their benefits.

Trump argued with the order, which has been in the works since last year, that the programs have grown too large while failing to move needy people out of government help.

So … Trump wants people to get off government dependence and that’s somehow a bad thing.

Hrm.

Never fear poor people, Alyssa Milano went FULL CAPS LOCK to protect the government owning you:

Possibly. But food stamps are at an all time low now. That’s what his bigger goal is. Reducing that number. And the system needs a huge adjustment anyway.

Our level of spending on entitlement programs is simply not sustainable. But if Alyssa is so worried about feeding the poor and their healthcare she should feel free to write a check.

Reform is necessary! Welfare isn’t supposed to be a way of life.

— Deplorable Dan #MAGA (@DanielH31701411) April 16, 2018

Not to mention the EO only affects people who are capable of working. Those with actual medical conditions and disabilities who are unable to truly work will not be impacted. But hey, we need to pretend that the GOP is trying to kill the poor and aging.

NO WE WONT!!!! @realDonaldTrump

UNREAL! Seth MacFarlane defends Hollywood elite by using ‘the little people’ as a shield, blames Fox News

Mon, 04/16/2018 - 13:34

Seth MacFarlane’s tweet about how middle America shouldn’t dislike the Hollywood elite because there are little people like plumbers and truck drivers who work for and ‘serve’ him and his famous, rich brethren is why people really don’t like Hollywood anymore.

Just a reminder that those “Hollywood elites” include carpenters, builders, painters, truck drivers, electricians, movers, plumbers, cooks, and many other dedicated people the likes of whom I’m fortunate to work alongside every day. Turn off Fox News. You’ll think more clearly.

— Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane) April 15, 2018

So not only does he crap all over the people he works with by using them as some sort of political shield, he tells people who don’t care for Hollywood types like HIM telling them what to think and believe to turn off Fox News.

Because apparently anyone who disagrees with MacFarlane is brainwashed by a station he doesn’t like.

But tell us more about all of those plumbers, Seth.

Come on, Seth. You and I both know that “Hollywood elites” isn’t referring to those people – unless they, too, earn millions per movie and live in gated communities in the Hills. Name the last truck driver invited to a Hollywood gala?

— Julita S (@julitaxx) April 15, 2018

Let us know when a Hollywood truck driver starts making millions of dollars and then uses his million-dollar-truck-platform to tell middle America they shouldn’t own guns.

EXACTLY this. Such a ridiculous misconception. I've done jobs where the Assistant Directors (who have by far the hardest job) were being paid minimum wage – $8 an hour. They barely get 4 hrs sleep a night. Elite, my ass.

— Alice Evans (@AliceEvansGruff) April 15, 2018

$8 an hour?!

Assistant Director?!

OMG, THE HORROR.

Yes, she is both an elite and an ass.

Aren't all your shows on Fox??? You got rich from Murdoch money. Jog on

— Jesse Taylor Lewis (@torkum) April 15, 2018

Oops.

Nope…Hollywood Elites refers to the elitist snobs, not the hoi polli working class…and you know it.

— Happy Hubby in the Slowly Defrosting North (@Skip1706) April 15, 2018

Seth, you have no idea how much of the below the line personnel hold you in contempt. My job brings me into contact with blue collar Hollywood frequently and it's a different world from yours.

— epobirs (@epobirs) April 15, 2018

Turn off CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC too Seth. It’s all distraction. “Hollywood Elite” refers to the money machine, not the laborers you’re attempting to include. They’re subject to the same propaganda that the machine pays for, as well as reliance on paychecks from those elites.

— Rick Lawson (@RickLawson1) April 15, 2018

But Trump?

OR…You could watch more than one. To assert that Fox is worse than MSNBC is misleading. Watch both. Watch all. Listen to those you don’t agree. Read. Think then for yourself.

— Kurt Defenbaugh (@kurtdefenbaugh) April 15, 2018

Wait, think for yourself?

Psh, Seth is a Hollywood elite, he hasn’t thought for himself in decades.

I liked you so much better when you were funny.

Remember the immigrant caravan? It’s now a ‘stampede’ and heading to the U.S. on a train

Sun, 04/15/2018 - 23:54

Remember the immigrant caravan that had supposedly dispersed earlier this month?

Apparently not, at least according to CNN. Note, the “stampede” in our headline is their word, not ours or President Trump’s:

Caravan of migrants climbs freight train for the next leg of the journey https://t.co/08pUIw0WuL pic.twitter.com/RZPgd5CX0H

From the article:

More from CNN’s Leyla Santiago who is following the march and took this photo and video of the “stampede” as it made its way on top of a freight train:

Migrants on caravan climbed onto train to continue north. I've heard so many horrific stories of the violence they're fleeing in Central America. A mom showed me scars on her 6 yr old daughter's body. She was burned when gang set her home on fire. They want to seek asylum in US. pic.twitter.com/iCQ3wq7jOv

And more from BuzzFeed’s Adolfo Flores:

Sad news to report this Sunday evening: R. Lee Ermey, a former United States Marine Corps staff sergeant, drill instructor and later in life, actor (“Full Metal Jacket”), has passed away at age 74 from “complications of pneumonia,” according to his manager:

CBS News makes embarrassing error in coverage of Barbara Bush

Sun, 04/15/2018 - 22:49

It’s common in the news industry to pre-write obituaries for famous people, but it’s always embarrassing when one goes live when it should not. Like this obit for Barbara Bush that was up on CBSNews.com briefly on Sunday:

CBS erroneously publishes obituary for former first lady Barbara Bush. https://t.co/7oLQlnYPRA pic.twitter.com/3Svzcm05Lh

— Miami Herald (@MiamiHerald) April 15, 2018

From the Miami Herald:

The first lines of the story read, “Barbara Bush, the witty, gregarious matriarch of a political dynasty that propelled two of its members to the White House and dominated Republican politics for decades, has died after a series of recent hospitalizations. She was 92. A Bush family spokesman said Bush passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by loved ones.”

Oof.

As we told you earlier, the office of GHWB released a statement saying Mrs. Bush “has decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care”:

Okay, that’s funny! David Axelrod has found a substitute title for Comey’s book

Sun, 04/15/2018 - 19:17

David Axelrod is not a fan of former FBI Director James Comey’s book. He questions the timing of the release but not the effort to make Comey some money.

As we know, the title of the book is “A Higher Loyalty,” so Axelrod came up with a substitute title that would be more descriptive.

I question the timing of Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty, as a matter of the public interest, adding, as it does, to the circus at a critical time in the probe.
But I have no doubt about its brilliance when it comes to book sales.
Maybe he should have called it Higher Royalties?

— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) April 15, 2018

Why has this prominent former Obama agency chief not been interviewed by Robert Mueller?

So, apparently Mueller does not believe @JohnBrennan has anything to add to his investigation, but @jaketapper and @CNN continue to parade him on their network as an “expert” https://t.co/89tPFHXy15

— Jeff Cunningham (@jeffrygc) April 15, 2018

As stated by Chuck Todd in the interview, current CIA director (and Secretary of State nominee) Mike Pompeo has been interviewed by Mueller.

Odd that Brennan has not been interviewed.
