If Michael Jackson taught us anything, it’s that “a lie becomes the truth” – as he famously noted in arguably his best song, “Billie Jean.”

The GOP expertly trolled a Democrat Congresswoman and caught her in a major falsehood.

Georgia Rep. Lucy McBath claims she lives in Georgia.

From Fox News:

Georgia Democratic Rep. Lucy McBath was the target of some creative trolling by the Republican Party over her widely disputed claim that she actually lives in Georgia, after receiving and signing for a gift basket the GOP sent to her address — in Tennessee.

McBath, a racial justice activist who defeated Republican incumbent Karen Handel in November, has been dogged with questions since the election campaign on whether she actually lives in the state she now represents.

The state’s Cobb County Tax Commissioner’s Office, which refrained from issuing a decision during the election due to appeals, confirmed last month that McBath didn’t meet the requirements to call her Cobb County home her primary residence for the three tax years leading up to the election, meaning she was a Tennessee resident when she was elected to Congress.

Here was the gift:

Proof she signed for it:

Speaking of he GOP and crossing state lines, Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz supports President Trump like few others in Congress.

What’s interesting is that Gaetz is considering leaving Florida to head across state lines to take down Democrat Senator Doug Jones – in Alabama.

This would be possible due to the Yellowhammer state’s “one-day residency requirement.”

Here’s the scoop…

From The Hill:

The rumor had been bouncing around the Capitol for weeks but took a more serious turn in recent days when Gaetz began privately discussing the idea with fellow lawmakers.

A GOP lawmaker noted, “He’s talking about running for Senate in Alabama. They have a one-day residency requirement there. POTUS would probably endorse him.

Sources close to Gaetz, 36, said that “people in Trump’s orbit” are personally encouraging the sophomore congressman to run for the Senate seat now held by freshman Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.). Those Trump allies are pointing to Alabama’s liberal requirement that people can run for the Senate so long as they are 30 years old and have been a resident for a minimum of one day.

Senator Gaetz has a nice ring to it for conservatives. To see him leave one state for another would be nearly unprecedented, which makes it all the more interesting.

Stay tuned for more!

Mitch McConnell Blasts AOC’s Claim He Is ‘Complicit In Advancing Racism’

Good for him.

Published

on

Has anyone else noticed how hostile Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become as of late? It seems she’s moved beyond just spewing pure idiocy and has decided to beef it up with a little bitterness. One of her most recent comments was against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who she claims is complicit in advancing racism. Because when all else fails, just toss out the “R-word.” Well, McConnell decided to strike back at such a claim and totally shutdown AOC. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I think it’s time to lore the rhetoric related to that subject all across America — everyone knows that’s nonsense,” McConnell replied to Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo when addressed with the accusation. “I was there when Martin Luther King gave that ‘I Have A Dream’ speech. I was there as an observer when President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act,” McConnell continued. “Look, I’ve got nothing to apologize [for] on this front. We ought to tone rhetoric down across the country. Throwing around words like racism, routinely applying it to almost everything — let’s talk about the issues.” McConnell’s response came two days after Ocasio-Cortez criticized him for not speaking out against President Donald Trump’s earlier remark that members of the so-called “Squad” should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” The Squad, consisting of Ocasio-Cortez, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib, and Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley, addressed the heated exchange Monday, and further attacked Trump on a variety of fronts, claiming that he was promulgating a white nationalist agenda and “allowing millions of Americans to die from lack of health insurance.” “[The Squad] wants to take America into a socialist country — I think it’s important to remember that you don’t need…

Berkeley Changing Name For City’s ‘Manholes’ To ‘Maintenance Holes.’ The Reason Why Is Ridiculous

This is just plain stupid.

Published

The city of Berkely, California has decided to change the name of the city’s “manholes” to “maintenance holes” as part of an effort to remove gendered language from the city’s legal code so they can be more “inclusive.” Folks, the insanity that left-wing progressivism ultimately leads to and why we must fight hard to stop it. via Daily Wire: NBC News reported that on Tuesday, the city council adopted a first reading of a new ordinance which removes “gender preference language” from Berkeley’s municipal code. NBC also reported that city council member Rigel Robinson, the youngest member of the council, orchestrated the new ordinance. “It is Berkeley being Berkeley, and what that means is it’s Berkeley being inclusive,” Robinson told the outlet’s bay-area affiliate. “A male-centric municipal code doesn’t reflect the reality of the city of Berkeley.” The full list of changed words is reminiscent of the decades-old move to change words that typically end in “-man” to ending with “-person,” such as “salesperson” instead of “salesman.” But the Berkeley list goes further, changing words in a way that would make a Gender Studies professor proud. Instead of “manhole,” city code must now say “maintenance hole.” Instead of “brother” or “sister,” city code must now say “sibling.” Instead of “manpower,” city code must now say either “human effort” or “workforce.” The term “manmade” is also getting scrubbed. It is to be replaced with “human-made” or “artificial,” or “manufactured.” Yeah, we’re just as surprised as you about the inclusion of “MANufactured,” but apparently it’s allowed. The word “master” is now replaced “captain,” “skipper,” or “pilot.” Yes, this is totally for real. This isn’t just another prank article or satire. These folks are legitimately this crazy. Political correctness is destroying America, ravaging freedom of speech, one of the most important, foundational truths…
