It’s easy for Dems to take potshots at the other party’s moral failings (real and imagined) but do they have the moxie to stand up to their own party? At least one does. Former member of congress Tulsi Gabbard slammed Mayor Lightfoot of Chicago for her blatant racism.
This is, after all, the same party that just blasted the majority of Republicans who refused to rubber-stamp the supposed “January 6th Commission,” which is nothing more than a re-run of when they used unfounded criminal allegations that the Mueller report was supposedly investigating to shift public opinion against Republicans just in time for the midterm elections — giving Pelosi the gavel and unleashing no end of partisan mischief as a result.
When Republicans saw through their partisan game, opposing the commission (as written), the handful of squishy Republicans who were cowed into supporting it were praised to High Heaven by Pelosi & Co.
But when the shoe is on the other foot, Pelosi has exactly ZERO moral fortitude in calling out people stepping out of line in her own party.
Do you think the 2nd Amendment will be destroyed by the Biden Administration?
When Biden and the Squad sided with the Terrorist Org Hamas, either in funding or moral support, Pelosi was MIA.
Now Mayor Lightweight — *checks notes* ‘Lightfoot,’ easy mistake — is beginning an explicitly racist policy of the type that is expressly forbidden by American Law.
She is now enforcing a racial condition on those who would want to interview her. If you’re not black or brown, you don’t get a 1-on-1 interview.
A race-based system of inclusion based on how black or brown your parents are sounds really bad. Can’t quite put my finger on it. One wonders how much non-white ancestry Lightfoot’s system would require to give a reporter access. Oh wait… that’s where we’ve heard this kind of bigotry before! She’s basically bringing back the one-drop rule!
I dunno. Seems like she’s setting a horrible precedent.
Tulsi Gabbard is one of the few Democrats with the integrity to call this out for what it really is. Racist and Anti-American.
Mayor Lightfoot's blatant anti-white racism is abhorrent. I call upon President Biden, Kamala Harris, and other leaders of our county—of all races—to join me in calling for Mayor Lightfoot's resignation. Our leaders must condemn all racism, including anti-white.

Tulsi’s own party responded, predictably, with outrage in response to this statement. In a quick scan of the responses, angry replies asserting that anti-white racism is either ‘ok’ or ‘not a real thing’ heavily outweighed any comments of support.
As we wait for the denunciations of Lightfoot that will never come from Democrats, here is a reporter with more integrity than most any elected Democrat in DC, taking a stand for equality when the activists and deep-pocketed rain makers demand policies anchored in special racial treatment.
I am a Latino reporter @chicagotribune whose interview request was granted for today. However, I asked the mayor’s office to lift its condition on others and when they said no, we respectfully canceled. Politicians don’t get to choose who covers them. https://t.co/YMW8M8ZgJm

Tulsi may be miles apart from us in most issues, but so far as standing with the courage of her convictions and expecting ALL Americans to be treated justly, regardless of intersectional politics? She’s right on the money.
If the loudest voices in her party sounded more like her and less like the squad, the whole country would be in far better shape.

Donald Trump Issues Stern Warning About America’s Future, Unless…
“Hopefully, courage will prevail”.
As his time in the Oval Office came to a close, Donald Trump began to develop some serious doubts about the way in which American elections are held, and whether or not the system is sustainable. These worries have continued long after he stepped away from the West Wing, as The Don continues to suggest that the contest was stolen from him – a claim that a great many of his supporters share as well. Now, as he plots his next move, the former Commander in Chief has a worrisome warning for this great nation of ours. In an email to his supporters, Trump said the Department of Justice has “no choice” but to “look at the massive voter fraud” that took place during the 2020 presidential election. “The Department of Justice (DOJ) is adding more people onto its roles in order to fight against efforts to limit voting and, I assume, other illegal voting acts,” he wrote in the Saturday email. “Based on that it would seem the DOJ has no choice but to look at the massive voter fraud which took place in certain Swing States, and I assume elsewhere, during the 2020 Presidential Election Scam,” the former president continued, listing a number of ways voter tallies could have been compromised: “whether it be voting machines, underaged people, dead people, illegal aliens, ballot drops, ballot cheating, absentee ballots, post office delivery (or lack thereof!), lock boxes, people being paid to vote, or other things, the 2020 Presidential Election is, in my mind, the Crime of the Century.” And that wasn’t all: “It will only get worse,” he predicted, saying “the voting irregularities and fraud of that election must be brought to light, immediately.” If left unchecked, Trump speculated a grim future. “Otherwise, we have no Country, certainly not…
TV Anchor Who Wrote Anti-Clinton Book Dies of ‘Apparent Suicide’
Those who’ve long suspected the Clintons of foul play were buzzing this week.
In many cultures around the world, we find the same tale over and over, of a boogeyman who snatches up wayward or misbehaving children and carts them off to their doom. This is largely a shared mythos; an amalgam of all of the dangers of the world around us, meant to reinforce the idea that youngsters aren’t yet ready to face the world alone. But the concept isn’t exclusive to parents raising their children, however. There are political boogeymen as well, who seem to see their critics disappear at a rate much higher than the median. These are folks like Vladimir Putin, or the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. And, of course, the Clinton family, whose decades of watching their enemies perish has been the stuff of legend in online conspiracy circles. Those forums were again buzzing this week. CHRISTOPHER Sign, an award-winning TV news anchor who wrote a 2016 exposé on Bill Clinton, has died. Local police chief Keith Czeskleba said on Saturday the death is being investigated as a suicide after the ABC 33/40 newsman was found at his home around 8am. Here’s where it gets interesting, at least for believers in the “Clinton Body Count” conspiracy theory. Sign, a former University of Alabama football player, penned a book about a secret tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch in June 2016. ‘Secret on the Tarmac’ was published in 2019. The idea that the Clintons are involved in a nefarious plot to wipe out their political opponents has been so widespread that it even has its own Wikipedia page.
