  • Dem challenger loses it in synagogue debate with GOP incumbent: Drops 'F' Bomb in a Place of Worship

    American Thinker ^ | 10/23/2018 | Rick Moran
    There was a debate Sunday night at a synagogue between the incumbent congressman from the 8th District in Pennsylvania (with redistricting, soon to be the 1st District), Republican Brian Fitzpatrick, and his challenger, Democrat Scott Wallace. At one point, the debate became rather heated, and Wallace shocked those present in the house of worship by cussing out his opponent.  He used an expletive and dropped an F-bomb, perhaps forgetting where he was. Or maybe not. WBCB: 'Ironically, there was a later question about the need for civility in politics,' Fitzpatrick told WBCB.  'Well, a good start is to not use vulgarities...
  • Warren took DNA test to help rebuild “trust in government” [barf]

    Associated Press ^ | Oct. 22, 2018 12:50 AM EDT | Verena Dobnik
    Democratic U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Sunday that she changed her mind recently and took a DNA test proving her heritage because Americans’ trust in government is “at an all-time low” and she wanted to help rebuild it by being transparent. The incumbent Massachusetts senator spoke at her second debate against Republican state Rep. Geoff Diehl in the U.S. Senate race. […] Ultimately, she said, she took a DNA test because she believes one way to rebuild trust in government is by posting her full family history online “so anybody can take a look. … I believe one way that...

    Anyone watch the debate just now? That Gillum is one slimy dude. He didn't answer one direct question. I thought DeSantis did a good job. My prayer is this is the kickoff to massive advertising and a Trump blitz through our state. We CANNOT afford Gillum. He is dirty to the core.

    I have been thinking for years about the language that the Left uses, such as "We will fight for _____", or "this is a struggle", or "you cannot be civil with...", or "fight in the streets", just to name some familiar and recent examples. The lexicon of the Left is clear and consistent - rational discussion is not tolerated. They don't value the dialectic. Heck, they don't even know what the dialectic is. What worse, the Left doesn't understand what the Constitutional right to assemble and protest means. They think it means they can assemble to physically intimidate their opponents...

    I could barely pay attention to what the commie was talking about with all of his fake Obama like gestures and Obama like speech pattern. Cruz mopped the floor with him. He is not ready to be a senator from a big state. He should move to a small liberal state. It was sad.

    Sinema was scripted, very...more polished...more canned answers: "I just looovvvve Arizona. It is sooo beautiful...I like to take walks outdoors in nature all the time." "I am sooo Independent." Took her 6 or 7 minutes to answer the question: How would you have voted on Kavanaugh? (No) McSally was less scripted, more off the cuff and seemed more real. McSally was more aggressive and wanted to mix it up more. Usually the more aggressive fighter wins in a close bout (See Trump). McSally walked over to Sinema to shake her hand at the end, that looked good. I give it...

    Fox News ^ | 10/12/18 | Lauren Lee
    Democratic House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied an audience of supporters in Washington Thursday evening with calls to implement single-payer health care and tuition-free college – along with an appeal to stop fossil fuel production entirely. Ocasio-Cortez, who is running to represent New York’s 14th Congressional District, has made no secret of her opposition to fossil fuels. She’s called for politicians to forsake donations from the industry and is pushing a “Green New Deal” plan which entails a shift to 100 percent renewable energy by 2035. But she cast her position in stark terms Thursday, during a fundraiser at a restaurant...

  • The Silly Debate About Socialism

    realclearpolitics ^ | 09/06/2018 | Froma Harrop
    What's with all this socialism business? A handful of lefty candidates are calling themselves socialists without a single radical socialistic item on their promise lists. They seem to have little idea of what socialism is. And most of the conservatives talking back to them don't seem to know, either. Simply put, socialism is a system whereby the state owns the means of production. In capitalism, the means of production are privately owned. Would someone kindly tell us which companies Bernie Sanders would nationalize, starting with Bernie Sanders? "Spreading the wealth" is not socialism. Sweden and other Scandinavian countries that Sanders...

    Newsday ^ | 8/29/18 | Dan Janison
    **SNIP** Defending against her suggestion that he's a corrupt parallel to President Donald Trump in Washington and deflecting the odor of criminal prosecutions of people close to him, Cuomo tried to cast Nixon as a corporate donor herself who solicited "favors" from her friend de Blasio. "You're a corporation," he said, faulting the allegedly minimal way by which she disclosed her income tax forms. She noted that in his first race for governor in 2010, his disclosure followed the election. She said her business corporation is that of a small business owner. Also hyperbolically, Cuomo called agents of the Immigration...
  • Ben Shapiro challenged Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a debate. When she refused, things got weird.

    JTA ^ | 8/10/18 | Ron Kampeas
    **SNIP** If there were a debate, you could probably count on Shapiro, a prominent Israel defender, to challenge Ocasio-Cortez on her harsh criticism of Israel. She described the day in May when Israeli troops killed more than 60 Palestinians, mostly Hamasniks, attempting to breach the fence with the Gaza Strip as a “massacre.” Ocasio-Cortez did not have to reply: No one expects a candidate to debate non-candidates, and her from-the-left appeal is based much more on getting out the vote than it is on persuading undecided independents or hostile conservatives. But reply she did on Thursday, and in the process...

    Former President George W. Bush says he’s “disturbed” by the immigration debate occurring under President Trump, where after decades, Americans are speaking out against mass immigration to the United States. During a panel discussion alongside former President Bill Clinton, Bush said the current immigration debate “doesn’t recognize” the “valuable contributions” of foreign nationals. “I’m disturbed by the debate that’s taking place because I think it undermines the goodness of America,” Bush said. “I think it doesn’t recognize the valuable contributions that immigrants make to our society. And it obscures the fact — the rhetoric does — that the system is...

There were two others involved, Michelle Goldberg and Steven Fry, but I'm not really going to get into the comments which they said, I think the crux of it really falls between the two individuals, Michael Eric Dyson and Jordan Peterson... 0:34 the whole debate was really kind of centered around political correctness and I...
