The Democrats Destroy Civility Once Again

They are so filled with hate. Does it ever end?

Published

Once again we learn that it is Democrats who are the ones so filled with hate that they are willing to destroy American traditions and turn their backs on mere civility. This time Congressional Democrats have canceled the annual, good-natured congressional softball game saying that they refuse to meet Republicans on the ball field.

You read that right. Democrats are so filled with hate, they can’t even see their way clear to play a simple softball game!

The story comes from the Daily Caller:

Trending: As If The Matt Gaetz Case Couldn’t Get Any Weirder…

Despite being a time-honored tradition going back many years, the DNC is refusing to play the RNC at this year’s annual softball game.

RNC sources tell The Daily Caller that they were “stunned” when Democrats abruptly pulled out of the good-natured game between leadership and staffers at opposing political organizations.

The game was an opportunity to put aside the partisan bickering and come together in friendly competition. The decade-old tradition typically ended in staffers having a drink at a nearby bar.

RNC sources familiar with the decision said the DNC told them that “all our players are out in the field this year. We won’t be able to play.”

This game was just one of those fun things in which the two party organizations used to engage just to keep things civil, just to offer a way something for the two sides to look forward to and to help them live together as normal people. The Republican National Committee and the Democrat National Committee even used to engage in good-natured “bets” over the game.

As Daily Caller noted, “In 2014, Sean Spicer and former DNC spokesman Mo Elleithee made a bet that Mo would shave his head if the DNC lost and Sean would swap Twitter avatars to the DNC logo if the RNC lost.”

So, it was all in good fun.

Here are a few tweets from last year’s festivities showing the heads of the RNC and DNC happily standing next to each other:

But now, the Democrats can’t even bow to civility enough to play a simple softball game because they are so balled up with hate, so filled with venom, and so bent with anger.

Democrats are apparently disgusting human beings.

Hunter Biden’s Art Dealer Had Grand Chinese Ambitions in 2015

This certainly raises a few new questions…

Published

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, has been heavily criticized in recent weeks, as he begins to sell hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of art to anonymous buyers around the world. As one can imagine, the idea that such vast amounts of money are pouring into the First Family without any transparency has led to concerns about foreign interests gaining a foothold in the White House via untraceable transactions. New reporting regarding Hunter Biden’s art dealer is now exacerbating those worries. The art dealer representing the president’s son has longstanding ties to China and said in 2015 that he wanted to be the art world’s “lead guy in China.” Georges Berges, who is representing Hunter Biden as he ventures into the art world, has talked about his business dealings in China in the past, but his reported ties could pose an ethics issue as he sells Biden’s art to anonymous buyers. Here is where it gets wild: Berges said in a 2015 interview with Resident that he wanted to be the art world’s leader in China. “My plan is to be the lead guy in China; the lead collector and art dealer discovering and nurturing talent from that region,” Berges said. “I plan to find and discover and bring to the rest of the world those I consider China’s next generation of modern artists.” He also said that that he believes “China’s economy is transforming the global economy and everything is changing because of a rising China,” and that he was fascinated by “cultural impact” China is “having on the world.” “Cultural power is real power. That is the reason America continues to be the capital of the world, because of its influence on culture for generations and on an unrivaled global level,” Berges also said. “And I…

GOP Rep. Says There’s ‘Credible’ Evidence of Wuhan Lab-Leak Theory

China has been avoiding any such investigation for months now.

From the very moment that the COVID-19 pandemic began, there were concerns that China wasn’t telling us the truth. This was primarily based on Beijing’s horrendous record of dishonesty when it comes to the international community, which has been ever-so frequent in cases in which the Chinese government could be made to appear cruel or uncaring. To be fair, it doesn’t take long for most to realize that this is, in fact, reality, especially as we continue to receive credible reports of the nation’s use of concentration camps and ethnic cleansing. In the case of the coronavirus, not only did the world discover that the data coming out of Beijing was wholly incorrect, but that a laboratory specializing in the exact type of coronaviruses that caused COVID-19 happened to be just a few miles away from the epicenter of the pandemic. Now, despite numerous attempts to stall or stymy efforts to investigate the theory that pandemic began as a lab-leak, one US lawmaker is claiming that there is credible evidence of just such a possibility.  Sunday, on FNC’s “The Next Revolution,” Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) stressed the importance of investigating the origins of COVID-19, and in particular, China’s role. His statement was stern. “As you know, we still have yet to have any notice that there will be an investigation. And so I think, rightfully, we used the powers of oversight that we have in Congress and we convened a hearing. Unfortunately, none of the Democrats attended that hearing. But the expert testimony from the witnesses was quite profound and quite significant. “And I think as they said, and I would tend to agree that this virus came from the laboratory, whether it was a leak, whether it was accidental, whether it was intentional, whether it was manmade or whether it…
