Stop Training Saudi Arabia’s Jihad Pilots, by Michelle Malkin – Politics Article

I’m glad the FBI was able to crack the iPhones of the Pensacola naval air base shooter, which confirmed that radicalized Royal Saudi Air Force second lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani had communicated with al-Qaida to carry out a “special operation.” Three young American patriots died in Alshamrani’s December 2019 attack. The more information we have to prevent the needless slaughter of U.S. military members on U.S. soil the better. But Attorney General William Barr’s announcement of the Pensacola jihadist’s unlocked…

Impeachy The Clown Mad About Senate Russian Sanctions Bill, WHAT? NO! REALLY? – Politics Article

Donald Trump was impeached for bribing and pressuring Ukraine (our ally) to announce fake investigations into his political rival Joe Biden in exchange for desperately needed military aid and a White House visit, both of which are crucial for Ukraine’s position in trying to end its war with Russia (our adversary), in order to help him steal the 2020 election. We’ve discussed many times how the Ukraine story is really the Russia story — as Nancy Pelosi famously said, “All…

Sanders endorses misogynist Cenk Uygur, then thinks better of it – Politics Article

Cenk Uygur is a candidate for Congress in California. He is seeking the seat formerly occupied by Kate Hill. In a sense, he would be a worthy successor to Hill. Like Hill, he would be a disgrace. Until yesterday, Uygur had Bernie Sanders’s endorsement. This is the story of how he lost it. But first, some background. Uygur runs a left-wing online news and commentary show called “The Young Turks.” He’s best known to non-leftists for his reaction on election…

Blacks for Buttigieg event disrupted by white “black lives matter” protester – Politics Article

John wrote below about Democrats gone wild. Let’s file the following story under left-wing Democrats gone wild. Pete Buttigieg hasn’t been able to garner significant support from blacks. One reason is said to be his disagreements with black activists over policing in South Bend, Indiana, where Buttigieg is mayor. I doubt that this is Buttigieg’s main problem with black voters, but I’m sure it doesn’t help him. In any case, some of Buttigieg’s black supporters in South Bend held an…

FRIENDS CAN’T BE BRIBED? Hick Demands Media Protection for Unethical Behavior – Politics Article

John Hickenlooper has deployed a bold and completely laughable defense against the state Ethics Commission report that clearly shows he crossed the lines in accepting banned gifts when he served as governor. Hickenlooper can’t deny he accepted the gifts, which came in the form of paid travel. Hickenlooper can’t cover the fact that neither he nor the state reimbursed those travel costs.  His only defense is to claim he had no knowledge, no idea any of those people would have…
