Healing Crystals Lady pulls ahead!

C'mon, man, this is great.  Legal Insurrection: "New Hampshire Poll Has Williamson Polling Ahead of Booker, Gillibrand, and O’Rourke." 

Bernie is losing ground in the state where he trounced Hillary and grabbed everyone's attention in 2016.  But his screaming at the camera act is so stale now.  He was on "Meet the Press" yesterday and I could have predicted every response.

Ever wonder why CNN's ratings are in the dumpster?

Twitchy: "Sure, President Obama deported more people than Trump, but CNN looks at the ‘context’."

Orange Man Bad.  Obama good.  We get it, we get it.

The identity politics monster turns on the Dems

Washington Free Beacon: "Pelosi's House of Pain."
She's something, Ocasio-Cortez. At 29 years old, she perfectly embodies her generation's uniquely irritating combo of self-righteousness and cluelessness. Passionate and charming at first blush, her appeal quickly wears off. In a March Quinnipiac poll her favorability was underwater by 13 points.

What Ocasio-Cortez understands is that, in the culture of social media celebrity, the worst possible thing to do is back down. So, when Pelosi stated the obvious to Maureen Dowd—that for all the attention The Squad receives from the media it is, in the end, four votes—Ocasio-Cortez insinuated the speaker is a racist. And they say liberals oppose nuclear war.
Pass the popcorn.  AOC rose to prominence by yelling from a lectern but I don't believe she could withstand substantive debate with either a primary or general election challenger.  She's just not that bright.

Vice deporter in chief

Joe Biden on immigration policy: "To compare him to what this guy is doing is absolutely, I find close to immoral."

Yeah!  Nobody deports illegals like Joe and his buddy Barack!
Joe Biden has had a two-word retort to recent questions about his record on civil rights and race: Barack Obama.

But when it comes to Latinos and immigration, Biden is learning that the Obama defense doesn’t do the trick: The former Democratic administration’s mass deportations of 3 million people provoked fear and fury in the community at the time, and the bad taste has lingered even with Donald Trump in the White House.
In fact, the Obama-Biden team deported illegals at twice the rate of Trump today.  Joe is right: there's no comparison.

Update - Politico tonight: "Protesters rail against Biden on deportations."  Check this out: "I will not apologize for deportation if the person committed a felony,” Biden told the protesters."  That is such weak tea, Sleepy Joe.

Mercifully, her fifteen minutes of fame are almost up



Extra - Reason Online: "The U.S. Soccer 'Pay Gap' Is About More Than Just Sexism - The U.S. women's soccer team deserves better, but mandating equal pay isn't the answer." 

A strong female character in a "Terminator" movie?

Say it ain't so!  Breitbart: "'Variety' fabricates hoaxtroversy about 'Dark Fate''s lady Terminator."

This is the worst thing since that black Little Mermaid danced at Boston University.

That's an unexpected twist

Did not see this coming.  Politico: "Appeals court skeptical Obamacare can survive."

Chief Justice John Roberts famously set up this conflict in Obamacare by ruling the individual mandate could only be administered through the tax power of Congress.  Could he now find some other convoluted reason to save SCOTUScare?  The answer might come in the middle of the 2020 election season.

You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you

Federalist: "Yes, There Is A Soccer Pay Gap: The Women Make More Than The Men Do - Last year, the men's World Cup generated $6 billion, and gave about 7 percent to the teams. The 2019 Women's World Cup made $131 million, and gave out more than 20 percent to the teams."

Acquire a thick skin

Powerline: "What a conservative learns in college."

I was a conservative student at Rutgers, and publicly so, because I wrote regular articles in several college newspapers.  I really can't attest to the current college climate except from articles like this but it seems like things have gotten markedly worse.  Back then I regularly attended parties with member of the campus left and generally we agreed to disagree.  Now the animosity and acrimony is at a whole other level.

Wut?

Grabien: "Biden: Russia Election Interference Wouldn’t Have Happened ‘on My Watch and Barack’s Watch’."
BIDEN: “Look at what’s happening with Putin. While Putin is trying to undo our elections, he is undoing elections in Europe. Look at what’s happening in Hungary, look what’s happening in Poland, look what’s happening. You think that would happen on my watch or Barack’s watch? You can’t answer that, but I promise it wouldn’t have, and it didn’t.
There's something wrong with this guy.

And then there's this.  CNBC: "Biden vows to bring back Obamacare’s individual mandate penalty for not having insurance."  Dude is self-destructing wayyy too early.  We needed this to happen around March.

Heroes of Twitter - assemble!

I have not been this angry since I saw that video of AOC dancing.  Twitchy: "Alleged racist backlash against black Little Mermaid is only the latest example of ‘fake outrage bait’."

They so want to believe it's true.  So they do!

That's better

The Hill: "Economy adds 224K jobs in June, exceeding expectations."
