The serious party’: President Elizabeth Warren’s Education Secretary would have to be interviewed and approved by ‘young trans person’ — This belongs in the “Not the Babylon Bee” section, but I wanted to highlight it. As one person noted, this will make people go from Never Trump to MAGA 2020. Taking policy advice from kids = stupid. Taking policy advice from “trans” people, who are, by definition, mentally disturbed = insanity. Combine the two and you are off the charts. The Left is a self-parody.
God: You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them.
Catholic and Eastern Orthodox religions: Let’s make carved images and bow down to them!
Students demanded divestment from fossil fuels, a professor offered to turn off the gas heating
Fergus Green, the organiser of the wider protest, who is studying for a master’s degree in physics and philosophy at Balliol College, said: “This is an inappropriate and flippant response by the bursar to what we were hoping would be a mature discussion. It’s January and it would be borderline dangerous to switch off the central heating.”
Then complain to Greta, snowflake.
‘Oligarchy is real’: Now that Cory Booker and Julian Castro are out, the DNC changed the debate rules to benefit the rich white dude — If Republicans did something like this the Left would never stop crying “raaaaacist.”
Franklin Delano Quid Pro Quo – more reasons that the impeachment trial is ridiculous and that you don’t want the Federal Gov’t involved in things outside their constitutional authority. You get nothing but abuse and waste.
“The inefficiency and uselessness of many WPA projects was a serious problem,” Dr. Folsom writes, “but a greater problem was the increased politicization of relief under the WPA.” President Roosevelt had “much discretion in allocation and distributing” WPA money, not unlike a president’s discretion in allocating and distributing foreign aid — though worse because foreign policy is constitutionally the president’s prerogative. As Folsom notes, FDR would choose “which states would receive what,” and the main problem was that this “made relief a game of political manipulation,” at least in the hands of a manipulative president like Franklin Roosevelt. “The problems that plagued the FERA would sharply increase under WPA because more money was at stake,” Folsom notes. “Governors worried that their states would not get their ‘fair share’ of federal tax booty, and so they came to Washington, hats in hand, to curry favor with Roosevelt, Harry Hopkins, who became the WPA director, and other New Deal administrators.”
Why Wasn’t Spygate Impeachable? — Democrats personify hypocrisy.
The Democrats have impeached Trump for merely contemplating something that Obama actually did. And in Obama’s case, the abuse of power was altogether real: it resulted in a massive violation of civil liberties. Obama’s FBI falsely claimed that four members of Trump’s campaign were probable Russian agents. None of them were. Oops. Oh well, the Democrats said. Obama had an obligation to check out the hunches of John Brennan and James Comey.
By contrast, Hunter Biden’s corruption wasn’t conjectural. As even Obama’s State Department acknowledged, his “work” in Ukraine reeked of improprieties and influence-peddling.
It is hilarious to watch Democrats speak of the Bidens as above reproach. In truth, Joe Biden stands at the center of a family of crooks who have spent decades trading on his last name. In Peter Schweizer’s new book, Profiles in Corruption, he writes that the family’s wealth “depends on Joe Biden’s political influence and involves no less than five family members: Joe’s son Hunter, daughter Ashley, brothers James and Frank, and sister Valerie.”
Eric Ciaramella’s Name Is Not a Secret, and #TeamTrump Only Hires Winners — The impeachment process was a ridiculous farce from the beginning. Democrats hate this country and are power-mad, and will do anything to get back in control.
Not the Babylon Bee — big week for self-parodies!
Child Molester Freed for Becoming Transsexual
PETA Demands Robot Replace Punxsutawney Phil
We’re gonna need a lot of millstones to clean this up . .
Great news for child abusers. You can now be released if you “change genders” — Brought to you by the Left — including the “Christian” Left.

I just saw the “turn off the gas heat” story. That is the absolute perfect response, and points out the fact that left is all about making someone else suffer for their worldview, but unwilling to bear the pain themselves.
The whole Quid Pr Quo argument has always struck me as stupid. Virtually every bit of foreign policy involves a Quid Pro Quo. That’s pretty much how WW2 ended. “If you surrender, we’ll stop bombing your country and killing people.” Yet no one wanted to impeach Truman.
Going back to your comment on my blog: I say amen to what you said about never backing down!

Yeah, they just view it as weakness. They’ll still hate you and then they don’t respect you, either.
