How about them apples?

Except for leadership positions, every member of Congress earns $174,000 taxpayer dollars annually.

Of course that’s way too much, but that’s a story for another day.

Freshman Republican Congressman Dan Crenshaw, the Navy SEAL whose war wounds were made fun of by “Saturday Night Live,” just made a widely-praised announcement about his salary during the government shutdown.

Trending: Tim Allen Beats Liberal Establishment, Ratings Soar for ‘Last Man Standing’

From Daily Wire:

Freshly sworn-in Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw is not just talking the talk, but walking the walk. The popular Texas congressman announced Thursday that he will not be taking a paycheck until the security at the southern border is properly funded and the government shutdown ends.

He wrote:

I cannot in good conscience get paid while federal employees’ financial futures hang in the balance because of this partial government shutdown. I’ve asked the Chief Administrative Officer to withhold my pay until we have come to an agreement to adequately fund border security.

Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called for members of Congress to not accept their pay during a shutdown, but she has yet to make an announcement similar to Crenshaw’s…

“Saturday Night Live” castmate Pete Davidson lost his father, a firefighter, on 9/11.

Since then, Davidson has been to rehab for drugs and admitted to having mental health issues.

Pete was engaged to singer Ariana “I hate America” Grande, but the two have since parted ways.

“Disgusting” Pete and SNL had no problem whatsoever openly mocking then-Congressional candidate Crenshaw’s war wounds.

Check out Crenshaw’s excellent response:

Reactions:

The full clip:

SNL may have just lost the remaining conservative viewers they might’ve still had.

On the other hand, Davidson is a comedian. His job is to tell jokes and not be politically correct, as Crenshaw implied.

Before departing to Texas on Thursday, President Trump spoke with the press outside of the White House.

He revealed what will happen if Republicans cave to Democrats on the border wall.

Trump: “I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency … I’m not prepared to do that yet, but if I have to, I will.

If this doesn’t work out, probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”

WATCH:

From The Hill:

The Democratic-led House approved a bill Wednesday to reopen the Treasury Department, Internal Revenue Service and Small Business Administration, among other federal agencies.

The chamber voted 240-188 to advance the measure, with eight Republicans bucking party lines to back the bill, which is the first of four bills expected to be brought to the floor by Democrats.

The Republicans who voted to advance the measure Wednesday included Reps. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Will Hurd (Texas), Fred Upton (Mich.), John Katko (N.Y.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Greg Walden (Ore.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) and Herrera Beutler (Wash.).

Again, the names:

-Elise Stefanik (NY)

-Will Hurd (TX)

-Fred Upton (MI)

-John Katko (NY)

-Brian Fitzpatrick (PA)

-Greg Walden (OR)

-Adam Kinzinger (IL)

-Herrera Beutler (WA)

‘That’s Appalling!’ CNN Hosts Lose It After Trump Jokes About ‘Salad’ (Video)

Classic CNN!

The White House recently hosted the national football champion Clemson Tigers.

President Trump personally threw down cash from his own pocket, but was resoundingly mocked by the MSM for providing a meal consisting entirely of fast food.

We’re talking McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s Domino’s, etc.

A little weird? Probably.

Look:

CNN took things a step further, though, after 45 made a joke about “salad” while speaking to the team…

Trump: “So I had a choice. Do we have no food for you? Because we have a shutdown, or do we give you some little quick salads that the first lady will make, along with — along with the second lady, they’ll make some salads.

Erin Burnett and Joan Walsh flipped out.

Walsh: “That’s appalling. It seems to me like the president will not be happy until there is not one single female Republican voter in the country. It’s incredibly sexist.

Burnett: “I’m not over-reading it. He made a joke that was sexist about women.

WATCH:

Classic CNN nonsense, huh?

Trump the misogynist! How dare he ask his stay-at-home wife to make salad!?

Of all things!

Facepalm.

CNN is a much funnier network than Comedy Central.

They know what makes the people laugh and they constantly deliver the goods.

What’s weird is how their ratings never surpass Fox News. Hmm.

Oh, well.

Check out the best, worst, and most hilarious moments from the communications wing of the Democrat party in one video supercut…

Now, check out the best of MSNBC…

From Daily Wire:

Each year, The Washington Free Beacon presents a roundup of MSNBC’s biggest failures or otherwise shoddy reporting and commentary.

WATCH:

Host Joy-Ann Reid agrees with guest Elie Mystal.

The way to “get” President Donald Trump is to go after his children.

ELIE MYSTAL: “Do you remember in ‘The Firm,’ how Tom Cruise brings down the entire mob on overbilling? In these reports, what we have is Ivanka Trump, as part of the Trump organization, overbilling the inaugural committee. That could be it right there. What we now have — this is the first time — look, we’ve talked a lot about Don Jr., we know now he was at the Trump Tower meeting, we talked a lot about Eric, because he seems to be Fredo.”

This is the first time that we have Ivanka—which is like the only kid he likes—in the crosshairs.She apparently, according to these reports, was involved with overcharging the inaugural committee, and somebody had to tell her: this is going to look bad when we get audited. For a long time I thought that the only way we are really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids. If you put the kids in legal peril, that’s the only thing that’s going to shock him out of his lying, deceitful, cocoon. And this could be the way to do it.

JOY REID: “There is this finding that people — we’re going to talk about this later in the show — that you can’t indict a sitting President. But it doesn’t say anything about a sitting President’s daughter.

WATCH:

Over 60 million Americans voted for Donald Trump. Over 60 million Americans voted for Hillary Clinton.

Of course, the former first lady won the popular vote. However, the former businessman won the electoral vote.

One of those things matters more than the other and for good reason.

It is to prevent tyranny of the majority.

According to MSNBC, though, Trump wasn’t “democratically” elected.

MSNBC panelists have come to the astute conclusion that President Donald Trump wasn’t actually elected — at least not “democratically.”

During an off-the-rails segment Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Hardball” with host Chris Matthews, two separate panelists claimed that Trump’s hush money payments in 2016 to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal “robbed the American people of their right to vote.”

They destroy water bottles that are left in the desert by Samaritans that are doing what Donald Trump’s bible tells them to do.

Hmm.

‘Straight Communism!’ — Bill De Blasio Introduces Plan to Seize Private Property

You wanted him, New York. You got him!

Published

on

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has flirted with full-blown socialism for years, as has every member of his party since Barack Obama became president.

Now, Bill is going full-on commie – and he doesn’t care who knows it.

During his State of the City address, de Blasio introduced a plan to seize private property.

Some are saying his plan amounts to “straight communism.”

Classic Democrat move.

From Fox News:

Liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is rolling out a new plan that would potentially allow the city government to seize buildings of landlords who force tenants out — a plan his opponents say amounts to “straight communism.”

De Blasio, in his State of the City address on Thursday, announced he wants to take action against landlords who try to force tenants out by making the property unliveable — and pulled out an executive order to create a Mayor’s Office to Protect Tenants. He said that in the event the government intervenes, the buildings would then be controlled by a “community nonprofit.”

President Bill de Blasio.

Could you imagine?

The stuff of nightmares, huh?

The uber-far left New York City mayor won’t rule out a run in 2020.

Bill: “I never rule things out, because you never know what life brings.

There are still a lot of moderate voices in the party that did not learn the lessons of 2016, that are not listening to what people need in this country. So I want to push this whole party and I want to inform this debate in this country about the fact that we could go a lot farther, we could be a lot bolder than what we’re doing now.

WATCH:

Health care for all has come to New York City.

Yes, all. As in everyone.

Legals. Non-legals.

Doesn’t matter.

Everyone gets their health care for “free.”

Because of radicals like Mayor Bill de Blasio, America is well on her way to becoming Canada and, gulp, Europe.

From Daily Wire:

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared Tuesday that the city will unveil a brand new “universal” health care program, footing the bill for all uninsured New York City residents, “regardless of their ability to pay or their immigration status.”

ABC News reports that de Blasio’s new plan, NYC Care, isn’t exactly a “universal health care” plan, but rather a “guarantee” that the city will pay for preventative medical care for an estimated 600,000 who do not have insurance, but live within the boundaries of New York City.

De Blasio: “Health care is a right, not a privilege reserved for those who can afford it. While the federal government works to gut health care for millions of Americans, New York City is leading the way by guaranteeing that every New Yorker has access to quality, comprehensive access to care, regardless of immigration status or their ability to pay.

By the time liberals realize health care is not a right it will be too late.

Shame.

Are you a male?

A female?

An X?

In NYC, it’s your call!

From Daily Wire:

On Wednesday, for the first time in its history, New York City offered a third option for parents of newborn babies or anyone choosing not to identify as male or female: changing or setting the gender of a birth certificate to “X.”

That third option, bypassing male and female, became available courtesy of a law signed by New York Mayor Bill de Blasio in early October that went into effect on January 1. De Blasio stated that the law allowed citizens the freedom to “tell the government who they are and not the other way around … Imagine if you were told you were something that you did not consider yourself to be.” He addressed transgender New Yorkers, saying, “You be you. Live your truth. And know that New York City will have your back.”

De Blasio, in June 2018: “Pride Month is a time to celebrate how far we’ve come in the fight for equality, and re-affirm our commitment to protecting all New Yorkers from discrimination. This proposal will allow transgender and gender non-conforming New Yorkers to live with the dignity and respect they deserve, and make our City fairer.

What’s going to happen when people want to identify as something other than “X?”

Food for thought.
