Celebrities and Their Moves

Here’s a partial list of celebrities who’ve promised to move to Canada if Republican Party Presidential candidate Donald Trump is elected next week.

  • Bryan Cranston, of Breaking Bad
  • Lena Dunham, actress
  • Whoopi Goldberg, of The View among other enterprises
  • Barbra Streisand, singer
  • Samuel L Jackson, actor
  • Chelsea Handler, comedian
  • Reverend Al Sharpton, Baptist Minister
  • Amy Schumer, comedian
  • Rosie O’Donnell, late of The View

A couple of questions come to mind.

Will these folks keep their promises, or are their promises just more Democrat promises?

She Lied, and She Abused

Democratic Party Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lied to the families of the terrorist-murdered Benghazi fallen when she told them they died as a result of a movie-prompted riot, and she lied to the American people when she repeated that lie in more public remarks.

Now she’s planning to abuse the family of a man killed by police in New York City.  Here’s Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner, the slain man, on revelations exposed in Clinton campaign emails:

I’m troubled by the revelation that you and this campaign actually discussed “using” Eric Garner…. Why would you want to “use my dad?”  These people will co-opt anything to push their agenda. Police violence is not the same as gun violence.

Furious Agents

Recall the latest revelation concerning the FBI’s pseudo-investigation of now-Democratic Party Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton; her unsecured private email servers; her unsecured emails, including those two thousand classified emails and emails with classified data in them (which rendered them classified, also, even though markings were absent); and her and her staff’s destruction of thousands of emails that were under subpoena at the time of their destruction.

This latest revelation is the payment by a Clinton acolyte, Governor Terry McAuliffe (D, VA), through his PAC, of nearly $470 thousand and the payment by the Virginia Democratic Party of another nearly $210 thousand to then-Virginia Democratic Party Senatorial candidate Dr Jill McCabe to support her candidacy.  McCabe is the wife of Andrew McCabe, the FBI official in charge of the FBI’s alleged investigation of Clinton.

Clawbacks

The Defense Department ordered as many as 10,500 former National Guardsmen from California to pay back enlistment bonuses totaling as much as $20 million, or $15,000, according to The Los Angeles Times. The bonuses were paid to entice more people to enlist during the US-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a 2013 Inspector General’s report deemed some excessive.

These bonuses were paid the guardsmen 10 years ago in recompense for their re-upping to rejoin those fights, many of them as part of the surge in Iraq.

As Predicted

…by a number of folks, including politicians.

Senior Iranian officials, including the country’s president, have been floating the possibility of further payments from the United States for months. Since the White House agreed to pay Tehran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year as part of a deal bound up in the release of American hostages, Iran has captured several more US citizens.

Here’s Senator Mark Kirk (R, IL) again:

A Teachers Union Disingenuosity

This example is provided by the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties; they’re holding the education of 100,000 state college/university students hostage against satisfaction of the union’s demands.

APSCUF President Kenneth Mash:

We are headed to the picket lines, but even on the picket lines, our phones will be on, should the State System decide it doesn’t want to abandon its students[.]

And

The union said late Tuesday night that the state had handed it its last, best offer and was done negotiating.

First, North Carolina

Now, Indiana.

The Delaware County Republican Party said vandals struck at their office last week.

Someone threw two landscaping bricks through a window on Oct 8. Signs for Donald Trump and Todd Young were hanging on the window at the time, according to the group’s Facebook page.

Is there any doubt about how the Left deals with those who disagree with them?  Sure, local North Carolina Democrats helped pay for repairs to that damage, but they’re not in government.  Not yet.  Indiana?

Precious Self-Importance

The media has it.

And its arrogance is wrong.

According to CNN’s Chris Cuomo, possessing the stolen John Podesta emails is a crime — unless you’re a member of the media.

“Remember, it’s illegal to possess these stolen documents,” Mr Cuomo said on air. “It’s different for the media, so everything you learn about this, you’re learning from us.”

Because we’re the Cool Kids.

It’s hard to believe that these folks, for whom words are their stock in trade, and for whom the 1st Amendment is central to their trade, don’t know this.  What does that say about media integrity?

Disparate Impact

Some folks sued RJ Reynolds Tobacco Co over its hiring policy that

allegedly gave preference to applicants with two to three years of job experience out of college and disfavored those with closer to a decade in the workforce. The company’s guidelines provided to its hiring contractor, according to the ruling, said the greener group of workers “adjusts easily to changes.”

The suit centered on the premise that this policy had a disparate impact on older workers.  In the words of Lee Parks, an employment and civil rights lawyer with Parks, Chesin & Walbert, the policy means that

Racism of the Left

Again.  Still.

A Black-owned bakery, Fat Cupcake, baked up a batch of cupcakes to honor our President, an American who happens to be black; they titled the cupcakes “Mr President.”  Fat Cupcake described their confection on their menu as an

Oreo (™) Cookie baked inside white cake, cookies n’ cream buttercream.

It didn’t take long for the Left to start manufacturing a racist beef where none exists, thereby displaying their own racism.  Via Yelp, for instance:

Very troubling. They were serving a cupcake called the “Mr President” that had an Oreo cookie inside. When I tried to point out the racism implied, they claimed that “our current president loves Oreos.”
