The Very Epitome Of Political Bigotry Aimed Directly At People In Peril

Wednesday wasn’t a particularly good day for a left-leaning political cartoonist.  Matt Wuerker was on the receiving end of a blistering firestorm over the illustrator’s depiction of Texas flood victims praising angels sent by God while a Coast Guard chopper’s crew member mentions their role on behalf of the federal government.
Here’s what Wuerker, who attended Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon and lives in Washington, DC said about his political bigotry:
“As a political cartoonist, I try to get people to think—to consider the ironies and subtleties of the world we live in. This cartoon went with an extreme example of anti-government types—Texas Secessionists—benefitting from the heroism of federal government rescuers.  It, of course, was not aimed at Texans in general, any more than a cartoon about extremists marching in Charlottesville could be construed as a poke at all Virginians.  My heart is with all the victims of Hurricane Harvey’s destruction and those risking their lives to save others.”
Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey expressed his opinion on Wuerker’s “sneering ridicule”:
“In his usual sledgehammer style, he includes a Gadsden flag to slam conservatives, Confederate imagery to smear Texans as racists, and then also includes a gratuitous slap at people of faith.  It’s a smug, arrogant, and utterly tone-deaf attack on hurricane refugees in the midst of their crisis, exploiting their tragedy to ride his hobby horses all over their pain.”
Then the sun rises on another day of political bigotry; only this time from French magazine Charlie Hebdo.
A scant two years ago, the controversial satire magazine was the victim of radical Islamist terrorists who killed twelve of the magazine’s staffers.
Charlie Hebdo joined the jackals with its most recent cover mocking victims of Hurricane Harvey with art of Neo-Nazis drowning in the flood waters and the words “Dieu Existe!” and “Il a noyé tous le Néo-Nazis du Texas!” (God Exists!  He drowned all the Neo-Nazis of Texas!”)
So, this is their thanks for the Texans who were among the thousands of Americans who died liberating France from the Nazis in World War II?  That’s funny coming from a nation who threw down their guns becoming little more than speed bumps for Nazi Panzer tanks.

For The Democrats It's Business As Usual

No one is going to jail in the latest installment of "Debbie Does Pakistan." Smashed hard drives, secretive money transfers, blown security on email servers and giving terrorist organizations access to classified information will not touch our favorite Democrats.

Debbie does us proud when it comes to doing the Paki Awan brothers.

And why shouldn't she?

Hillary gave Russia a uranium lap dance for $145 million and she wasn't even breathing hard.

Senator Who “Wore” Diaper Considers 2020 Run Against President Trump

Most, if not all of us, remember the bizarre Minnesota senatorial race in 2008 between incumbent Norm Coleman (R-MN) and former Saturday Night Live “star” Al Franken.
It was impossibly close; on the morning after the election, after 2.9 million people had voted, Coleman led Franken by 725 votes.
Franken and his Democrat allies dispatched an army of lawyers to challenge the results. After the first canvass, Coleman's lead was down to 206 votes. 
During the controversy, a conservative group called Minnesota Majority began to investigate claims of voter fraud. Comparing criminal records with voting rolls, the group identified 1,099 felons─all ineligible to vote─who had voted in the Franken-Coleman race.
After months of wrangling and litigation, Franken was declared the winner by 312 votes. He was sworn into office in July 2009, eight months after the election.  Franken was elected on the strength of voter fraud.
During the campaign, Republicans sought to keep Coleman’s seat in the Senate and unearthed a racy Playboy article, “Porn-O-Rama”, published in 2000.  The RNC also called attention to a 1995 skit on SNL where Franken joked about raping CBS journalist Lesley Stahl.
Franken: “And, I give the pills to Lesley Stahl. Then, when Lesley's passed out, I take her to the closet and rape her. That's why you never see Lesley until February. When she passes out, I put her in various positions and take pictures of her."
Senator Yuk-Yuk was forced to distance himself from his crass and profane comedy routines when he accepted his party’s endorsement in 2008:
“For 35 years I was a writer. I wrote a lot of jokes. Some of them weren’t funny. Some of them weren’t appropriate. Some of them were downright offensive. I understand that. And I understand that the people of Minnesota deserve a senator who won’t say things that will make you feel uncomfortable.” 
To get and stay elected, he had to suppress his sense of humor and project an air of utmost seriousness. The people of Minnesota, after all, were not interested in being represented in Washington by a clown—a truth revealed to the candidate in multiple focus groups with Minnesota voters.
In his new memoir, “Al Franken, Giant of the Senate”, Franken admits the truth: His inner clown never went away. It just got suppressed, forcibly and with great effort. He became a giant phony.
There’s an old axiom that says every senator wakes up humming “Hail to the Chief”.  That axiom now includes just about any Democrat who isn’t a convicted felon.  Enter Senator Al “Yuk-Yuk” Franken.  According to The Hill, political associates say they think he could be talked into running for president if he believes he’s the best positioned to defeat President Trump.
As much as Franken and his army of toadies would like to scrub the Internet of that photo of him donning a pair of bunny ears wearing a diaper or a video of him holding two traffic cones suggestively, the Minnesota senator has never failed to beclown himself.
While the aforementioned tasteless antics are years old, the antic that conclusively proves his tenure in the Senate has been a colossal farce was the Neil Gorsuch confirmation hearing.
NOTE:  Franken serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee.  He has not one scintilla of knowledge about the law.  He neither attended law school nor practiced law.
Franken grilled Gorsuch about the case of the freezing truck driver who had been fired after he had driven away from his broken trailer after waiting several hours for help. 
"Don't you think it was absurd that this man was fired?" Franken asked.
"My heart goes out to him," Gorsuch said.
“But the plain meaning rule has an exception. When using the plain meaning rule would create an absurd result, courts should depart from the plain meaning. It is absurd to say this company is in its rights to fire him because he made the choice of possibly dying from freezing to death or causing other people to die possibly by driving an unsafe vehicle. That’s absurd.  Now, I had a career in identifying absurdity,” Franken said.
GORSUCH: Senator, a couple of things in response to that, if I might. Going back, the absurdity doctrine argument was never presented to the court. And it usually applies in cases where there is a scrivener's error, not where we just disagree with the policy of the statute.  So, I’d appreciate the opportunity to respond there.
FRANKEN: When there’s a scribner there?
GORSUCH: Scrivener’s error.
FRANKEN: Error. Okay. I’m sorry.
GORSUCH: Not when we just disagree with the policy.  With respect to…
FRANKEN: Well, if I read my statutory interpretation from─let's see. This is from the Notre Dame Law School National Institute for Trial Advocacy. This is a pretty well-known exception to the plain meaning rule.
GORSUCH: Oh, yeah.
FRANKEN: And I think you can apply it without it. I mean don't you think it is absurd that this man was put─given that choice and then fired for it? Don't you think that was absurd?

GORSUCH: Senator, my heart goes out to him.
FRANKEN: Okay, never mind.

I Hear You Loud And Clear I Just Don’t Care

He made $24 million in six years on a $193,400 annual government salary. I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation. 
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has the lowest favorability rating of any elected official with a national profile, according to a new Harvard-Harris poll provided exclusively to The Hill.
McConnell, who is not up for reelection until 2020, only has an 18 percent job approval rating in Kentucky according to a poll released this week by the left-leaning Public Policy Polling.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is underwater, posting a negative 33-47 split, but he is viewed favorably by 63 percent of Republican respondents nationwide.  I find this to be wildly inexplicable.
Conrad Black, commenting at National Review noted, “…three-quarters of Americans despise the Congress as tainted and ineffectual windbags wallowing in the public trough. Congress has become a useless appendage, a hopeless, stupid, talking shop that, apart from tax cuts after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and Obamacare, has done nothing significant since welfare reform in 1996. The mutual antipathy between the president and all the congressional leaders is obvious and unseemly. Trump shouldn’t be tweeting about it, but it is nervy for McConnell and Ryan to criticize publicly almost everything the president does.”

Congress is scheduled to reconvene after Labor Day.

Quote Of The Day

“President Trump’s low poll numbers were joined last week by abysmally low approval ratings for both Congress and for the job the mainstream media is doing. It seems everyone’s shooting in every direction. My desire to remain well-informed is currently at war with my desire to remain sane.”Argus Hamilton

Sheriff Joe Is A No Go To Prison

The political witch hunt is officially at an end. The former Sheriff of Mariposa County, AZ has received a pardon from President Trump.
President Trump granted a pardon to Joe Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., on Friday. Arpaio, 85, was recently found guilty of criminal contempt for defying a judge's order to stop traffic patrols that allegedly targeted immigrants. 
He had been charged with misdemeanor contempt of court for allegedly willfully defying a judge’s order in 2011 and prolonging his patrols for another 17 months.
The idiot 9th District Judge Susan Bolton who ruled that Sheriff Arpaio was not entitled to a misdemeanor jury trial was obviously channeling District Judge G. Murray Snow who should have recused himself from the case as he and his wife displayed hostile intent toward Arpaio.
Arpaio acknowledged extending the patrols, but insisted it wasn't intentional, blaming one of his former attorneys for not properly explaining the importance of the court order and brushing off the conviction as a "petty crime." 
He was expected to be sentenced on Oct. 5 and faced up to six months in jail if convicted. "Sheriff Joe Arpaio is now 85 years old, and after more than 50 years of admirable service to our Nation, he is worthy candidate for a Presidential pardon," the White House said in a statement.
Unlike our former President Barack *spit* Obama, I have yet to see a single drug dealer receiving a pardon from President Trump.

How Many Times Must The Mailman’s Son Run For President?

During the primaries leading up to Trump’s eventual nomination for president there was a tiresome, self-inflated idiot far too many Republicans simply could not stomach.  That idiot was John Kasich.
His platform then included immigration amnesty, foreign intervention, Medicaid expansion and only modest resistance to sweeping social change. He espoused his views with a rather grating degree of sanctimony.
Kasich wants to be a good guy, but, even more than that, he wants you to recognize he’s a good guy who’s possibly better than you. He likes to cite Matthew 25, in which Jesus speaks of doing unto “the least of these,” citing it confrontationally to people who question his policies. “You know what I tell them? There’s a book. It’s got a new part and an old part. They put it together. It’s a remarkable book. If you don’t have one, I’ll buy you one. And it talks about how we treat the poor.” 
A commenter at Ace Of Spades demurred, “Kasich seems like that weird guy in the rest room who pees with his hands on his hips.”
He drew ire from Republicans who supported Ted Cruz. Having earned a measly 154 delegates and winning only one contest in his home state of Ohio, he made it much easier for Trump to garner the 1,237 delegates needed to become the nominee of his party without a contested convention.
Marco Rubio, who left the race in March had more delegates than Kasich.
He ignored calls from a growing number of party officials to quit the race, saying he, not Cruz, presented the best option to stop Trump.
His pigheadedness defied all logic.  It reminded me of the ending credits of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off where Ferris comes into a hallway in his bathrobe saying, “You’re still here?  It’s over.  Go home…Go.”
Well, the mailman’s son is teaming up with Colorado’s Democrat governor John Hickenlooper to challenge President Trump in 2020 in what his political advisor John Weaver called a “unity” ticket.
Weaver, it should be noted, was behind the losing presidential bids of John McCain─twice─ and Jon Huntsman.
We always knew he was a closet Democrat.  Maybe the good people of Ohio would prefer he focus on the state’s failing schools, inner city violent crime, the public pension shortfall and the deadly opioid epidemic.
Go home John.  Nobody wanted you in 2016 and they certainly won’t want to support a narcissistic RINO turncoat in 2020.  Just go.

Chinese Army: "We So Ronery"

Chinese civilians have been spending far too much time polishing their bayonets instead of preparing for combat. Military authorities have taken notice.
The Chinese military says excessive masturbation and too many video games are among the reasons its physical-test failure rates have reached an “alarming high.”
This explains the popularity of the "What in the World is Carmen Santiago Wearing" app.
The People’s Liberation Army is now dishing out advice after one city saw more than half its candidates — 56.9 percent — fail their physicals, according to the BBC.
Military service is mandatory but is not enforced as it is apparently considered a wise career move to enlist. 
PLA found that 8 percent of candidates failed because of abnormalities found in their scrotum from sitting too much. Another 25 percent flunked because of blood and urine tests. It recommended that candidates follow 10 basic principles, including exercising more, cutting out fizzy drinks and booze, limiting computer games and masturbation, not getting a tattoo and drinking clean water.
They perhaps need to develop warrior monks ... the People's Liberation Monastery.

Hell’s Bells. We Know What Happened.

Beginning today, Amazon Prime is streaming The Tick─a story about the exploits of a blue-clad superhero and his crime fighting cronies.
The Tick once told The Evil Midnight Bomber, “If you’re gonna be a real villain, you gotta get a gimmick.”
MSNBC’s Morning Joe featured an exclusive audio clip in advance of Hillary’s new book “What Happened.”  By now everyone knows the excerpt contained a passage where the cankerous pack mule of an old woman experienced an ongoing trickle of anxiety with her opponent following her closely, staring at her and making faces.  “It was incredibly uncomfortable.  He was literally breathing down my neck.  My skin crawled.”
Granny’s gimmick has always been to play the victim.

Is The Deep State Now The Real State?

Like so many other Americans I was excited to see Donald Trump win the 2016 Presidential Election. What stuck in my mind was his "You'd be in jail" remark to Hillary Clinton during one of the debates.

I have yet to see this attitude come to fruition in his administration. Indeed, Trump's Executive Orders have eliminated much of the Obama legacy of failure, but Judicial Watch still struggles to wrest emails from the State Department and IRS. Nothing seems to be moving in the DoJ except Russia, Russia, Russia. Of course open criminal investigations should remain secret until an arrest(s) is made but given the sieve-like environment that plagues the White House, you'd think you would hear something.

As Public Enemy #1, the corrupt mass media cannot be trusted to bring light to any of the Obama/Clinton/Soros crimes and until official government action is brought to bear on these activities, the perpetrators will remain free to wreck political havoc on the Trump administration.

The American Thinker has a piece that clearly articulates my concerns.
Has the Deep State really won? I hope my pessimism is unfounded and short-lived. And perhaps Bannon can be more effective from the outside, if rumors are true that he plans to build a media network (Breitbart or otherwise) to replace the increasingly liberal Fox News as the voice of Conservatism. After all, when God closes a door, he opens a window, right? Maybe a window will open from which we can toss the Deep State.
There are certain predators that will use parts of their bodies to lure their prey to them - then they strike. Is Trump doing the same thing? We'll see.

Carry On My Wayward Son

Regular readers of this blog may have noticed something terribly important has been missing.
The last time co-blogger Sig 94 published a blog post here was on May 24th. Since that time, he lost something soft and beautiful and bright; his beloved mother.
He didn’t feel like posting here at or at It Don’t Make Sense.  It’s been ten weeks and Sig announced yesterday he’s back.  After buying two new fishing rods and “some tasty lures” he has turned his grandson into a fishing fanatic.
We’d like to welcome back our old friend.  He has a post scheduled to go up here at 4:00 PM today.  I hope everyone will leave a comment letting him know we’re glad he is returning with his wit and wisdom.

We Live In Incredibly Stupid Times

Is there anything more pathetic than ESPN imagining people would be offended by an Asian-American play-by-play announcer named Robert Lee calling a football game between the Virginia Cavaliers and the Tribe of William and Mary? 
Dave Weekley will call the UVa-W&M contest while General Lee will call the play-by-play for the Youngstown State-Pitt game on ESPN that day instead.
It’s time for God to flood the earth again.

Loosening The Reins On The Military To Fight The Enemy

The Afghans have a saying: “After God created the Earth, He had a bunch of rocks and sand left over so He made Afghanistan.”
Amid that brown and desolate landscape there is a mountain of rusted Soviet military tanks and hardware abandoned in 1989 at the end of their decade-long invasion.
The Hindu Kush is a 500-mile mountain range spanning northwestern Pakistan and eastern and central Afghanistan. For centuries, its barren and jagged mountain ranges have been a graveyard of empires.
The Taliban and mujahideen are fierce fighters.  They defeated the Soviets with muskets and their grandfathers overthrew the British with swords.  Even the fortresses Alexander The Great ordered built in Bactria (modern-day Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan) began to crumble as he continued his invasion east to India.
As President Trump wrestles with America's role in Afghanistan, the germane question is what do we seek to achieve.  Making this godforsaken hellhole tranquil is not a legitimate American interest.
In President Trump’s address to the nation last evening he declared, “In Afghanistan and Pakistan, America’s interests are clear. We must stop the resurgence of safe havens that allow terrorists to threaten America.”
Former UN Ambassador John Bolton noted a few weeks ago, “Given terrorism's global spread since 9/11 and the risk of a perfect storm—the confluence of terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction—the continuing threats we face in the Afghan arena are even graver than those posed pre-9/11. Accordingly, abandoning the field in Afghanistan is simply not a tenable strategy.”
Bolton added, “Politically unstable since British India's 1947 partition, increasingly under Chinese influence because of the hostility with India, and a nuclear-weapons state, Pakistan is a volatile and lethal mix ultimately more important than Afghanistan itself. Until and unless Pakistan becomes convinced that interfering in Afghanistan is too dangerous and too costly, no realistic U.S. military scenario in Afghanistan can succeed.”
Pakistan hid 9-11 monster Osama bin Laden in plain sight.
The President rightly pointed out “after the extraordinary sacrifice of blood and treasure, the American people are weary of war without victory. Nowhere is this more evident than with the war in Afghanistan, the longest war in American history─17 years.”
Trump’s strategy is his promise to loosen the military’s rules of engagement (ROE). “We will also expand authority for American armed forces to target the terrorists and criminal networks that sow violence and chaos throughout Afghanistan.” 
Trump concluded his speech by recognizing the immense sacrifices in the global war on terror.  “Many of those who have fought and died in Afghanistan enlisted in the months after September 11th, 2001. They volunteered for a simple reason:  They loved America, and they were determined to protect her.”
“Now we must secure the cause for which they gave their lives. We must unite to defend America from its enemies abroad. We must restore the bonds of loyalty among our citizens at home, and we must achieve an honorable and enduring outcome worthy of the enormous price that so many have paid.”

Tell Me More About How America Oppresses You

Well, the attention whore finally got what he wanted.  Former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick, will see items related to his national anthem protest placed in an exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History.
The NMAAH has nearly 40,000 items in its collection but not one damn thing to honor such luminary blacks as George Washington Carver, Thurgood Marshall, Satchel Paige, Willie Mays, Magic Johnson, Condoleezza Rice, Thomas Sowell or Clarence Thomas.
Putting Kaepernick’s game-worn jersey, shoes and a picture donated by Harry Edwards in an exhibit would be an utter disgrace.  The museum defends its decision by replying, “The collection is in line with the museum’s larger collecting efforts to document the varied areas of society that have been impacted by the Black Lives Matter movement.”
Why not include his “cops-as-pigs” socks and his Castro T-shirt?
I have a suggestion for a highly appropriate item to be made part of the exhibit:  the “Special Flammable Colin Kaepernick jersey”.
He described the American flag as “just a piece of cloth.”
As of this writing, the ungrateful POS hasn’t signed with any team for the 2017 season.  He has had an incredibly inconsistent career.  He faded in the seasons leading up to his protests winning just three games in his last 19 starts.  The 49ers finished in last place for the second season in a row.
The NAACP and members of the NYPD are threatening a nationwide boycott meant to “send a message” to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
The moment this douchebag began refusing to stand for the playing of the national anthem and other jock-sniffing courtiers began to join him I boycotted the NFL.  Am I now supposed to watch the games because the NAACP and the NYPD have called for a boycott? Nah. I don’t think so.
The NFL needs to grow a pair.  Kaepernick and all the thugs, wife-beaters, rapists and shoplifters throughout the NFL are detested by fans.
Goodell has a tough circle to square. This has festered for far too long.

I Won't Be Worried Unless I See A Bunch Of Mayans Hanging Around

I read an article in The Daily Mail that evidently was written by some social justice warrior living somewhere in the Pacific Northwest that had me scratching my head.
“While a total solar eclipse isn't rare, this particular one on August 21 has an uncommon coast-to-coast path across the country and is slated to inspire a new age of thinking among youth called ‘Generation Eclipse’. Totality is said to be transformative as people are said to emote when exposed to the cosmos.”
The writer asserts this celestial phenomenon could help “unify the country.”
“When was the last time we really had a big national shared event that wasn't a tragedy?” he wonders going on to interject, “Awe-inspiring sights encourage empathy and generosity and group cohesion…and total eclipses always do that.”
His theory for this cohesion:  Oregon and Illinois are the only states that fall along the totality path to have voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Horse pucky!
There have been 26 eclipses (total, annular, hybrid and partial) during the 20 and 21st centuries. There will be eight more between 2023 and 2048.
Before our technological age solar eclipses were met with anxiety and dread as an unwelcome disruption to the natural order of things.
Maybe I’ve become jaded having experienced an eclipse on more than one occasion in my lifetime. What’s the big deal? Sunset happens every day.
The ancient Greeks believed eclipses occurred when the gods were angry with humans and the Babylonians believed it signified the death of a ruler. The Vikings believed a hungry wolf was feasting on the sun.  I won’t be worried unless I see a bunch of Mayans hanging around.

Brian Williams Shared A Cigar With This Guy

Our country is currently being besieged by protesters and counter-protesters who feel entitled to define who we memorialize in America following the recent violence in Charlottesville over a Confederate statue.
I saw a meme the other day intended to demonstrate to those protesting who were never slaves and those who did not fight in the Civil War how unconvincing their angst over stone and metal is.  The meme depicts a psychiatrist from South Park, the adult animated sitcom, instructing his patient to “show me on this doll where the Confederate statue hurt you.”
On the subject of offensive statues, one in particular, has come under scrutiny from the woman who was raped in 1978 by then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton.  Juanita Broaddrick wants to see a likeness of Bubba located in Rapid City, SD destroyed.  She can certainly point out where Bubba's statue hurt her.
“I would like to personally use a sledgehammer on it, with the help of Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones,” she said. Willey and Jones, of course, are two other women who have accused President Clinton of sexual misconduct.
“I don’t think it would be in their best interest (to acknowledge them), even though they know Bill Clinton is abhorrent and morally deficient, to say the least,” she tells The American Mirror.
She declined to invite feminist groups to help her. “They have ignored me in the past and it would not be worth the effort. They have too many strong political ties to the Clintons.” 
The National Organization for Women threw the Clinton accusers overboard.

He’s Going To Go Medieval On Their Ass

The quake you felt Friday afternoon came on the heels of the White House announcement that Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was leaving the Trump Administration.
Pundits were quibbling over whether Bannon resigned or was fired.  The question of tantamount importance is with whom will Bannon go to war now that he has been “unshackled.”
Writing at Daily Wire Ben Shapiro pointed to something he said one year ago:  “Bannon understands that in the game of thrones, you win or die; he doesn’t intend to die.” Now that he’s been beheaded by Trump, look for him to try to become the Night King, leaving destruction in his wake.
At 10:18 AM, Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor at Breitbart Media, tweeted the hashtag #WAR.
In his first public remarks since his ouster, Bannon told Joshua Green, Senior National Correspondent at Bloomberg and author of “Devil's Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency”, he will be “going to war” for Trump, warning that he will continue to press the populist cause against the political and corporate establishment. “If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up:  I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents—on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America.” 
Gabriel Sherman, Special Correspondent for Vanity Fair and NBC/MSNBC contributor was evidently so excited this villain was gone he tweeted: “Bannon friend says Breitbart ramping up for war against Trump.  “It is now a Democrat White House,” source says. [emphasis mine]
David Bossie, a long-time Republican operative, former deputy campaign manager for the Trump campaign and Chairman of conservative advocacy group Citizens United appeared on Fox News Special Report to allay any fears Bannon would turn on Trump.

Mean Tweets: CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Edition

Following the aftermath of Thursday’s terror attack, CNN’s Wolf Bullshitter Blitzer said there will be questions about whether “if what happened in Barcelona was at all a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville,” after it was reported that a large van ran into pedestrians leaving several dead and many injured.  “Even though there may be different characters, different political ambitions. They used the same killing device, a vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group of pedestrians.”
Did CNN forget the six attacks involving vehicles plowing through pedestrians in Europe over the past year?  Of course not.  It was just another good, strong whiff of hospital-tested, clinically-proven bullshit.

Behold, Another Soft-Skulled Moonbat

“Black people who were never slaves are fighting white people who were never Nazis over a confederate statue erected by Democrats because Democrats can’t stand their own history anymore...yet somehow, it’s Trump’s fault.”
Via St. Louis Post-Dispatch─Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal posted, ‘I hope Trump is assassinated” on Facebook.  She quickly deleted it but not before her intemperate decision caused the Secret Service to investigate her threat.
Secret Service spokeswoman Catherine Milhoan says all threats made against the president, vice president and other protected persons are investigated, whether the threats are direct, implied or made in passing.
Seems the soft-skulled moonbat is facing a barrage of flak from members of her own party:
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said, "I condemn it. It's outrageous. And she should resign.”
Rep. William Lacy Clay, (D-MO) exclaimed, "Calling for the assassination of the President is a federal crime…She is an embarrassment to our state. She should resign immediately.”
NOTE: It was Clay who hung the controversial “cops as pigs” painting in the Cannon Building of the Capitol Complex in January of this year that was taken down three times and rehung by him.  The Congressional Black Caucus defended the painting as free speech.
The painting showed cops as pigs pointing guns at protesters in Ferguson following the shooting death of Michael Brown in 2014.
Missouri Democratic Party Chair Stephen Webber stated, "The Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President. I believe she should resign.”
Republican Gov. Eric Greitens' office said late Thursday afternoon that a statement from him is forthcoming.
Chappelle-Nadal acknowledged she wrote the offending line but added, "I didn't mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated. Things have got to change.  It was in response to the concerns that I am hearing from residents of St. Louis. I have deleted it, and it should have been deleted, but there is something way more important that we should be talking about.  I am not resigning.  What I said was wrong, but I am not going to stop talking about what led to that, which is the frustration and anger that many people across America are feeling right now."
Chappelle-Nadal said her comment stemmed from frustration over the events in Charlottesville over the weekend, in which a white supremacist protester allegedly rammed his car into a group of counter-protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman.
"There are people who are afraid of white supremacists" in the aftermath of Charlottesville, she said. "There are people who are having nightmares. there are people who are afraid of going out in the streets. It's worse than even Ferguson."
There’s good news though.  Having joined the Missouri State Senate in 2010, she will be ousted from office in 2019 due to term limits.
