$600,000 to paint over a mural of George Washington, huh?

Boy, does San Francisco have their priorities in order or what?

Once a liberal is offended, it’s game over. Everything has to change immediately.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco will spend up to $600,000 to paint over historical artwork at a public school depicting the life of George Washington, a mural once seen as educational and innovative but now criticized as racist and degrading for its depiction of black and Native American people.

The “Life of Washington” was painted by Victor Arnautoff, one of the foremost muralists in the San Francisco area during the Depression. The San Francisco School Board’s decision to paint over the 83-year-old mural is prompting some to worry that other artwork from the so-called New Deal era could face a similar fate because of changing sensitivities.

In addition to depicting Washington as a soldier, surveyor and statesman, the 13-panel, 1,600-sqaure foot mural at George Washington High School contains images of white pioneers standing over the body of a Native American and slaves working at Washington’s Mount Vernon estate in Virginia.

After spending decades in a private collection, a resurfaced letter written by America’s first president praises God for the ratification of the United States Constitution.

It is over 230 years old, dating back to 1788.

The price tag?

A cool $140,000.

From Fox News:

The letter to Richard Peters, speaker of the Pennsylvania House, is signed Sept. 7, 1788, and praises God for the ratification of the U.S. Constitution.

Written a week after Washington told Alexander Hamilton that he would likely accept calls to assume the presidency, the letter came at a time when the Constitution was under attack. Some states wanted to hold a second Convention that may have undermined the Constitution.

Zoom in to read:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) is the mayor of gaffe city.

Noting that the age to run for president is 35 and Alexandria is only 29, a photographer said: “You can’t even run for president for another six years.

Ocasio-Cortez: “No, not for a long time. Thank God. Although we’ve been joking that because the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been passed yet, the Constitution technically says he cannot run unless he’s 35. … So what we’ll do is we’ll force the Republican Party to pass the Equal Rights Amendment by threatening to run for president.

Uh, Alexandria? The constitution does not say “he.”

As Playbook notes, the Constitution does not say “he” cannot run — it says “any person.”

According to Article II Section I of the Constitution:

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.

The mayor of gaffe city, the governor D’oh!-ville strikes again – with a vengeance!

Save conservative media!

Revealed: House Ethics Committee to Investigate Rashida Tlaib for Misusing Campaign Funds

It’s just Democrat after Democrat…

Freshman Democrat Socialist Rashida Tlaib (MI) could potentially be in big trouble. Even if she’s guilty, though, liberals will likely only give her a slap on the wrist and claim she’s the victim of a right-wing smear campaign. Until then, the openly anti-Semitic Muslim continues giving the American people plenty to think about. It’s just too bad the mainstream media will continue to give her a pass. From Fox News: The House Ethics Committee on Thursday released a trove of striking internal campaign communications sent in 2018 by Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib, in which Tlaib urgently requested money from her congressional campaign to defray personal expenses — and, a government watchdog said, possibly violated federal law in the process. The document dump was related to the committee’s ongoing ethics probe into Tlaib, which the panel said on Thursday would be “expanded” based on a referral from the Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE). Texts and emails released by the Ethics Committee show Tlaib frantically contacting members of her staff for financial help.

Bill Clinton’s Advice to Trump: Ignore Impeachment, Pass Gun Control As Soon As Possible

Spoiler alert: it’s bad advice…

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) said last night what all conservatives were thinking from the start: Democrats are looking to impeach President Trump because they know they can’t win in 2020. They are looking for any excuse to get him out of office, now that Russia and other hoaxes have failed. It’s truly stunning to witness how far the Democrat Party is willing to go to sabotage a duly-elected president in a time when unemployment is at an all-time low and the economy is thriving. Then again, this party is comprised of people who believe it’s acceptable, even cool, to murder a baby. Here’s impeached President Bill Clinton’s advice for Donald Trump. Spoiler alert: it’s not good advice. From Breitbart: On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s special coverage of the shooting at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, CA, former President Bill Clinton told President Donald Trump to ignore impeachment and pass gun control. Commenting on when the Republican-controlled House impeached him in 1998, Clinton said, “Look at how much we got done in 1998 and 1999 and even in ‘97. We had very productive actions in all three years. The only really tough year we had after the Republicans won the Congress, was ‘95 to the beginning of ‘96—when they shut the government down twice. Once the public rendered judgment on what they thought should be done, I kept working with them. That’s just an excuse.” Monica’s boyfriend added, “My message would be, look, you got hired to do a job. Every day’s an opportunity to make something good happen. And I would say, I’ve got lawyers and staff people handling this impeachment inquiry, and they should just have at it. Meanwhile, I’m going to work for the American people. That’s what I would do.” Hillary Clinton probably won’t run for…
