Trump Rocks Rallies Out West, Slams Bloomberg And Hollywood

For those who don’t particularly care to get their political and cultural analysis from leftist cable news, there is another pundit out there who has usually gets it right.

The president of the United States.

Wednesday and Thursday nights were no exception, as President Trump took well-aimed shots at a range of topics and targets at a raucous rally in Phoenix, Arizona and at a similar event in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Arizona, much to Democrat chagrin in 2016, is solid red. Colorado was until recently thought to be solid Democrat territory, though current analysis could put it in the toss up column for November.

Trump continued his mocking of Mike Bloomberg in Phoenix on Wednesday, “I hear he’s getting pounded tonight — you know he’s in a debate. I hear that pounding. He spent $500 million so far and I think he has 15 points. Crazy Bernie was at 30.”

His son Don, Jr. echoed his dad on social media, “Like a deer in the headlights! Like I said last week Mini, you can’t buy personality or wit and the whole world just saw it.”

The president also justifiably hit Amy Klobuchar’s campaign as “dead” on Wednesday because of her disastrous debate performance and her junior high school airhead question of Pete Buttigieg, “Are you calling me dumb?” Pete may have only implied it, Amy. But we have no problem answering, yes.

For good measure, in Phoenix he compared Pete Buttigieg to Mad magazine’s Alfred E. Newman. We get that, though also see a lot of Pee wee Herman there.

Commenting on pop culture in Colorado Springs on Thursday he said, “By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards this year? ‘And the winner is a movie from South Korea’. What the hell was that all about? We’ve got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of that, they give them the best movie of the year? Was it good? I don’t know. I’m looking for like, let’s get ‘Gone with the Wind.’ Can we get ‘Gone with the Wind’ back, please? ‘Sunset Boulevard’? So many good movies.”

The crowd loved it.

“The winner is from South Korea. I thought it was best foreign film. Best foreign movie. No — did this ever happen before? And then you have Brad Pitt. I was never a big fan of his. He got up and gave a little wise guy statement.”

On both nights the president went on to recount his accomplishments in office and take other hard punches at the Democrats for the impeachment drama and their knee jerk leftism.

Chris Matthews Frets: If Bernie Wins the Nomination ‘We’ll Lose 49 States’

MSNBC host Chris Matthews is sounding the alarm suggesting that if the Democrat party goes all-in on radical socialist, Bernie Sanders, President Trump will wipe the floor with them on Election Day.

In discussing how the other candidates have withheld their fire against Sanders and his radical policies, Matthews predicted the ultimate outcome would be Trump winning 49 of 50 states. Or is it 57, Barack?

“They’re [other candidates] just pandering to the Bernie people and you know what pandering gets you? Nothing,” the MSNBC host complained. “It certainly doesn’t get you respect.”

“They’ve got to get out there and say I disagree with socialism; I believe in the markets; I think he’s wrong,” Matthews continued. “I think you’ll never get it done and this country will never go that direction, by the way we’ll lose forty-nine states.”

Safe to say, Chris has no thrill going up his leg for Bernie’s socialist candidacy.

Let’s Analyze Those Comments

There is a lot to unpack in Matthews’ comments, not the least of which is how his prediction will probably come true. We’ll get to that in a minute, however.

Let’s begin with how the MSNBC host, who wants to convince viewers that he and his network are not an arm of the Democrat party, framed the comment.

We’ll lose forty-nine states.”

Why would he consider that a personal loss? A rhetorical question, of course.

Also worth considering, Mr. Matthews, is the possibility that Democrats aren’t exclusively pandering to Bernie’s people. Perhaps they have conformed to the extreme elements of the fringe left and are supportive of his socialist policies and platforms.

It’s not exactly a far-fetched notion for a party that has conformed to Bernie’s acolytes on impeachment hoaxes and theatrics from top to bottom.

He’s Right

Now back to our initial analysis – that Matthews may very well be right when he says the Democrats will suffer incalculable electoral losses on Election Day.

A new ABC/Washington Post poll shows the socialist curmudgeon dominating the field while more palatable choices amongst party moderates are plummeting.

And while Bernie-mania and his dreams of American socialism are popular amongst the extreme left, it remains extremely unpopular to the rest of America.

new poll found only 28% of Americans have a favorable view of socialism, while 58% have an unfavorable impression.

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) believes Sanders’ name on the Democrat ticket will result in overwhelming losses for the party in November. Perhaps enough that the House could be flipped.

“Bernie Sanders and House Democrats’ socialist agenda will put an end to Nancy Pelosi’s unsuccessful second stint as Speaker,” NRCC Spokesman Michael McAdams said in a statement.

Pelosi Admits Thinking About, Then Ripping SOTU Page With Soldier’s Homecoming

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted pausing briefly when she came upon a transcript page in the State of the Union regarding a soldier’s touching homecoming … and shredding it anyway.

Pelosi, in an interview with CNN, described the moment she went unhinged at the conclusion of the SOTU and started ripping pages of the speech given to her by President Trump.

Though video evidence seems to indicate the lead Democrat pre-meditated her actions by inflicting small tears into the pages prior to the meltdown, Pelosi has insisted the historically disrespectful act was spontaneous.

The lone moment, according to the Speaker, where she gave pause, was a page involving one of the more emotional moments during the evening – a soldier’s homecoming.

But she did it anyway!

“My tearing it up had to do with — I thought if I could find a page that doesn’t have a falsehood on it, I’ll spare it, but I couldn’t find that,” Pelosi claimed.

“I almost did when the soldier was coming home, that was so beautiful, but get back to the bottom of the page and there he goes again.”

Soldier’s Homecoming

Earlier this month, Pelosi demanded social media giants Facebook and Twitter remove an ad that transposed her shredding of the SOTU beside several emotional and terrific moments during the President’s speech.

The ad was meant to show the many touching stories Pelosi was disrespecting through her actions – honoring a  Tuskegee airman, a fourth-grade student who received a scholarship to go to a school of her choice, the family of a soldier killed by Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani, to name a few.

And, of course, the Williams Family from Fort Bragg, North Carolina, who were reunited during the speech with Sergeant First Class Townsend Williams who had been serving on his fourth deployment.

She Owes That Family an Apology

Shredding a SOTU transcript because your blind hatred of President Trump motivated you to do so is reprehensible in and of itself.

Admitting you were in such a rage that you were willing to do so with a page that you know involved a touching military homecoming is even worse.

House Republican Whip Steve Scalise slammed Pelosi for her actions at the time and demanded an apology.

“I thought it was disgraceful. It’s unbecoming of a speaker,” Scalise said. “Frankly, Speaker Pelosi should apologize as well, because it’s not the image she should want to portray as the speaker of the House.”

She pre-ripped the page with the soldier’s story. She then saw the same page and noted what was on it at the end of the speech. And she ripped it anyway.

Pelosi owes that family an apology as well. Do you think she’ll ever admit it?

Trump Threatens to Sue ‘Everyone’ Involved in Mueller Investigation

President Donald Trump just threatened to sue “everyone” involved in the Robert Mueller investigation and the trial of his confidant, Roger Stone.

“The Whole Mueller Investigation was Illegally Set Up”

“These were Mueller prosecutors, and the whole Mueller investigation was illegally set up based on a phony and now fully discredited Fake Dossier, lying and forging documents to the FISA Court, and many other things,” President Trump said on Twitter, in relation to the criminal investigation and trial of Roger Stone, his close ally.

“Everything having to do with this fraudulent investigation is badly tainted and, in my opinion, should be thrown out,” he continued, arguing that “even Mueller’s statement to Congress that he did not see me to become the FBI Director (again), has been proven false.”

Trump described the “whole deal” as “a total SCAM,” adding that “if I wasn’t President, I’d be suing everyone all over the place… BUT MAYBE I STILL WILL. WITCH HUNT!”

Earlier, the President had cited an appearance by Judge Andrew Napolitano on Fox News, following the revelation that the foreperson on Roger Stone’s jury trial, Tomeka Hart, was vocal in her dislike for the President and his allies:

Judge Jackson now has a request for a new trial based on the unambiguous & self outed bias of the foreperson of the jury, whose also a lawyer, by the way. “Madam foreperson, your a lawyer, you have a duty, an affirmative obligation, to reveal to us when we selected you the existence of these tweets in which you were so harshly negative about the President & the people who support him. Don’t you think we wanted to know that before we put you on this jury.”Pretty obvious he should (get a new trial). I think almost any judge in the Country would order a new trial, I’m not so sure about Judge Jackson, I don’t know.

“The President is Frustrated”

Speaking to Fox and Friends, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said that the tweets show President Trump’s “frustration” with the system and the Mueller report.

“For three years he has been under attack in one way or the other and the Mueller report is another example of that,” Grisham said. In the case of Roger Stone, she highlighted Hart’s position, saying she was “someone who was very vocal about not liking President Trump and his supporters:”

I would just say to people who are watching, think about if you were on trial for something and the foreperson of the jury who was actually there to decide your fate, is against who you worked for, is against who you supported. That’s scary stuff. This is just another example of the constant barrage of corruption that has gone against this President and of course, despite that, he continues to do great things, but he is frustrated, obviously, and who knows what he’ll end up doing?

RELATED: New Trump Impeachment Push For Democrats Over Roger Stone Affair?

I share the President’s frustration. The deep state and their allies are doing everything they can to throw the book at anyone who dares support his agenda – meanwhile, crooked Hillary and other high-ranking swamp creatures are being let off scot-free by the justice system.

Come on Mr President, sue the lot of them, and shake this country up.

Cher In Panic Mode: Doesn’t Think Democrat Candidates Can Beat Trump

By PoliZette Staff | February 17, 2020

The actress and singer Cher, who is better known for her frequent bouts of Trump Derangement Syndrome these days than she is for her work in the entertainment world, just had yet another meltdown on Twitter as she appeared to come to the realization that Democrats can’t actually beat Donald Trump in November.

Cher kicked things off by saying that there isn’t a single Democrat in the 2020 race who can beat Trump in the election, writing that what we need is a “magnetic leader to bring us to together, with impeccable background, who can hit the ground running.”

As you can see from her tweet below, spelling and grammar are not strong suits of Cher’s.

She later slammed former Vice President Joe Biden, saying that he has “many strikes against him” and that he is a “good, honest man” who could be president, “but not run 4 pres.”

This came one day after Cher let loose on Trump and Attorney General William Barr in another deranged tweet, describing them as “brothers from another mother” whose “gelatinous chins fall over their collars down on their chests.”

“Neither One Could Recognize The Truth If Their Lives Depended On It,” she continued. “YET WE ALLOW THEM TO GET AWAY WITH CRIME AFTER CRIME.”

MORE NEWS: The five best presidents in American history

Hollywood stars like Cher are so full of themselves that they don’t even realize how much they are embarrassing themselves with these nonsense tweets. All Cher is accomplishing with these rants is showing the world how ignorant she is about politics. After decades in Hollywood, Cher has completely lost touch with the reality of what it’s like to be a working class American, which is why she is blind to all the good Trump has done for the working people of this country.

Cher should have just stuck to singing and acting, and left the politics up to those of us who actually have some brains.

Judge Napolitano Suggests Jury Foreperson in Roger Stone Trial Could Be Jailed, Conviction Overturned

Judge Andrew Napolitano commented on the remarkable revelations coming out of the Roger Stone trial, namely that the jury foreperson had a significant anti-Trump and anti-Stone bias.

Facts regarding Tomeka Hart, the juror in question, have been coming out of late, facts that probably should have been known by the judge or prosecutors in the case long before now.

Hart, it has been revealed, donated to Democrat candidates rather frequently (she donated $100 to Kamala Harris during the trial), actually ran for Congress as a Democrat, posted on social media that supporters of the President are racists, and even shared a post mocking Stone for decrying the ‘excessive force’ used in his arrest.

“Then stop being racists,” she wrote in response to one article about Trump supporters growing weary of being called the term.

“Co-signing and defending a racist and his racist rhetoric makes you racist,” Hart continued. “Point blank.”

Which begs the question, how in the hell was this woman, who very clearly has an animus towards Stone and anybody involved with President Trump, allowed to serve on the jury period, much less as foreperson?

Napolitano has some opinions and if they’re right, suggests Hart could be looking at being charged with a crime.

Did She Hide Her Bias?

Judge Napolitano appeared with Fox News personality Tucker Carlson to discuss the case which has ignited Democrats to pursue new impeachment charges and investigations against the President and Attorney General Bill Barr.

“Why was someone like this allowed to remain on the jury?” Carlson asked.

Hart, Napolitano believes, has a very serious problem if it is determined that she intentionally hid her bias.

“This is information that she must have hidden from the lawyers and the judge who interrogated her before she was put on the jury,” he explained, noting that federal cases require a judge interrogate the jurors.

“The purpose of the interrogation is to weed out people that have a bias, prejudice, and knowledge of case or interest in the outcome,” Napolitano continued.

“She obviously had a prejudice against Roger Stone, a bias in favor of his prosecution, and an interest in seeing him convicted.”

There is another scenario though less likely – that the judge and prosecutors knew of Hart’s mindset and were okay with it.

Bring Her Back In

The reality is, in most courts in America this would be grounds for a mistrial.

Napolitano believes the judge in this trial needs to bring Hart back in, along with the prosecutors who recently attempted to resign in protest over perceived interference by the President, and interrogate her again.

If it is determined Hart lied about bias or prior knowledge of Stone in her initial interrogation, said Napolitano, “It would be catastrophic for her.”

“First of all, she is a lawyer,” he said. “So she would be prosecuted for perjury since the statements are given under oath.”

“And if convicted she would lose her license to practice law but that would be the least of her concerns,” Napolitano continued. “She probably would serve jail time if she lied in order to affect the outcome of a case.”

He also proposed that if it is determined that Hart falsely represented herself, the conviction would be vacated and a new trial ordered.

Considering Democrats are hell-bent on taking down President Trump and AG Bill Barr over this, imagine their rage when one of their own resistance footsoldiers ends up getting Stone off.

Joe Biden On Debating Trump: ‘I Can Hardly Wait’

Former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Thursday that he was eager to debate President Donald Trump.

‘I can hardly wait’

“I can hardly wait,” Biden told ABC’s “The View,” calling Trump “the most corrupt president we’ve ever had.”

Biden defended his decision to remain in the presidential race in the interview despite terrible results in both Iowa and New Hampshire

“People know me. They know who I am,” Biden said. “They know I’ve never been accused of doing anything indecent, I haven’t lied. I’ve been straight up.”

‘I’m authentic’

“The bad news for me is I’m authentic,” he continued. “I say what I mean. I mean what I say and sometimes I say all that I mean but that’s — you know …”

The View co-host Sunny Hostin noted that Biden’s supposed reputation for being authentic was one of the reasons many people thought he should have been a witness in the Senate impeachment trial against Trump.

“At one point there was talk of this trade. Bolton testifying for your testimony,” Hostin said. “Many people think you should have testified because you would make a good witness. Why didn’t you?”

Biden dismissed the question, claiming no one had asked him to testify, then immediately went back to attacking Trump.

“Look, this is a tactic he uses,” Biden said. “The best thing when you’re attacked, go to somebody else, take your eye off the ball, focus on something else. I’ll be damned if I’m going to give him that opportunity. I can hardly wait to get him on the debate stage …”

The audience burst into applause.

“I can hardly wait. This is the most corrupt president we’ve ever had,” Biden went on. “He wants to fight corruption. Mr. President, I released 21 years of my tax returns. Release one of yours. What do you have hiding?”

Joy Behar then intervened, asking, “Let’s say you’re on the debate stage with him and he does what he did to Hillary, starts hovering behind you like a big monster behind the poor woman. What are you going to do?”

“I’ll say, come up here, Jack. Up here. Stand next to me. Come on, this guy is a — oh gosh,” Biden laughed while shaking his head. “God, give me the grace to not say what I’m thinking.”

Former CNBC Anchor Michelle Caruso-Cabrera To Challenge Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Michelle Caruso-Cabrera is a former longtime CNBC anchor who just announced she will challenge Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her New York House seat.

After leaving CNBC full time in September 2018, Caruso-Cabrera became a contributor for the news outlet.  A CNBC spokesperson said she will take a leave of absence from her contributor role as she focuses on her campaign. The former anchor also serves as a member of the board of directors for financial services firm Beneficient.

RELATED: New Trump Impeachment Push For Democrats Over Roger Stone Affair?

Caruso-Cabrera More Moderate than Ocasio-Cortez

Caruso-Cabrera’s filing late Monday show that she will run in New York’s 14th District Democratic primary. More moderate than self-described socialist Ocasio-Cortez, Caruso-Cabrera has a reputation for being more skeptical of government and has supported free markets. Though she’s been a registered Democrat for years, in 2010 she published a book with what some might consider a more conservative or libertarian sounding title, “You Know I’m Right: More Prosperity, Less Government.”

Caruso-Cabrera released a statement explaining her decision to seek NY 14. “I am the daughter and granddaughter of working class Italian and Cuban immigrants,” the statement read. “I am so lucky to have had such a wonderful career and I want everybody to have the opportunity that I’ve had.”

“That’s why I’m running,” she added.

She Was a Longtime CNBC Contributor

Caruso-Cabrera spent more than two decades CNBC as the co-anchor of “Power Lunch” and also as the news outlet’s chief international correspondent.

Ocasio-Cortez’s profile has been elevated immensely since her election and she is considered one of the more influential voices on the left today. Nicknamed “AOC” the congresswoman has made national headlines for her support for policies like “Medicare for All” and the “Green New Deal,” which is supposed to target climate change but reads like socialist wish list.

Ocasio-Cortez also received plenty of attention when she endorsed democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020. President Donald Trump has even gone after Ocasio-Cortez in tweets and speeches.

AOC shocked many mainstream Democrats when she defeated veteran Rep. Joe Crowley in his 2018 House primary. Ocasio-Cortez then defeated her Republican opponent, Anthony Pappas, with a whopping 78 percent vote in the Democrat-leaning district.

Michelle Caruso-Cabrera joins about a dozen other candidates who have already filed to run for AOC’s seat. The primary will be held June 23.
