What Democrats Say They Should be Able to Purchase With Office Allowance is Beyond Ridiculous

Published

on

You’d be hard pressed to find a single American, left or right, who wouldn’t agree with the statement that the government is the grandmaster at finding new and creative ways to waste tax dollars, mostly by lining their own pockets with them.

However, there’s a new “scandal” that’s sweeping Capitol Hill and it threatens to further divide the American people, splitting them into even more factions than the ones that currently exist. What is this earth shattering issue?

Democrats are fighting tooth and nail to be allowed to use their office allowance to purchase tampons. Yes, you read that correctly. So heated is the debate over this, that it’s now reached Speaker Ryan’s office.

You can’t make this stuff up. You simply can’t.

Rep. Grace Meng teamed up with Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, who raised the issue last week when he claimed he was asked to pay back money he used to buy tampons for his office, to write a letter to Speaker Paul D. Ryan asking for offices to be able to be reimbursed for feminine hygiene products.

“We implore you… [to] make feminine hygiene products available to those who need them,” the letter reads. “It is a simple change that can bring sanitation and relief to thousands of Congressional employees, visitors, and Members of Congress alike.”

They also asked Ryan to provide free feminine hygiene products in all bathrooms that are under the jurisdiction of the House, as opposed to members’ offices.

“Women have been treated as second class citizens for far too long. We have an opportunity to fix that problem here in the House, and the Speaker should take it,” Maloney said in a news release.

“Feminine hygiene products are a basic and essential need for women,” Meng said in the release. “All women deserve access to them and that includes women who visit and work on Capitol Hill.”

So, if we’re all reading this correctly, the basic argument here is that to not use federal tax dollars to purchase tampons and other “feminine hygiene” products is to somehow be guilty of oppressing women and treating them as second class citizens?

Really?

Not providing you with something you think you’re entitled to hardly counts as oppression and being treated as a second class citizen. No one is denying anyone access to these products. You can literally purchase them at every local drugstore on the corner of nearly every street in America.

It’s simple. Buy your own and carry them with you. Problem solved.

Now. How about we get back to debating and discussing more important issues, like ending the abortion holocaust?

Unlikely Reception to Sanders on Fox News Worthy of Full Page Ad?

Bernie’s Fox News town hall event smashed expectations, and was apparently worthy of a little gloating from the network.

Published

A peculiar thing occurred in American politics last week, but perhaps it shouldn’t be seen as such an outlier. In a move that shocked many, including President Trump, Bernie Sanders had an amicable and poignant “Presidential Town Hall” on Fox News.  Given the wild biases of the mainstream media, particularly when it comes to the far-left leaning democratic socialist from Vermont, many assumed that Sanders’ appearance on Fox would have been a bloodbath. Quite to the contrary, however, Sanders received a decidedly warm reception, even eliciting a hearty cheer from the crowd when explaining his “Medicare for all” wishes. Perhaps the nation truly is suffering from Obamacare in ways that many of us may have predicted. This sort of open-minded political positioning has become rare these days, thanks to the inflammatory practices of the mainstream media.  Fox’s gambling on Bernie paid off big-time, however, and the event has now received a full page advertisement in The Washington Post proclaiming its success. https://twitter.com/feliciasonmez/status/1118865630617395201 The numbers were simply incredible: The ad comes three days after nearly 2.6 million viewers tuned into Fox News’s town hall with Sanders on Monday night, making it the most-watched town hall of this campaign cycle so far, according to Nielsen Media Research. The live event, co-moderated by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier and “The Story” anchor Martha MacCallum, also delivered 489,000 viewers in the 25- to 54-year-old age bracket that many advertisers cater to. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, provided Fox News with a considerable ratings bump compared to the same day last year. The network saw an increase of 24 percent in total viewers and 40 percent in the 25- to 54-year-old demographic. It certainly stands to reason that a great many of these viewers were tuning in in order to size up Sanders, who at…

Bill Barr has turned out to be everything President Trump wanted in an attorney general – and more. Former AG Jeff Sessions might’ve faired more favorably in 45’s eyes had he not recused himself from the Mueller investigation, but all of that is in the past. During his Thursday morning address to the media regarding the Mueller report, Barr shut down a reporter who implied he was “covering” for Trump. It was a total boss move. WATCH: https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1118877097244733440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118877097244733440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fwatch-ag-barr-rips-reporter-to-her-face-when-she-implies-hes-covering-for-trump%2F Barr consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and both concluded there was zero evidence against Trump.

Adam Schiff (CA) is not thrilled with Barr. From Fox News: Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., slammed Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday, stopping just short of asking for his resignation after saying the redacted Mueller report showed Barr misled the American people with his summary report last month. The House Intelligence Committee chairman held a news conference just hours after the nearly 400-page redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released to the public. Schiff claimed Barr “did a great disservice to the county by misrepresenting significant parts of the Mueller report, by attempting to put a positive spin for the president on the special counsel’s findings” last month. He added, “On the issue of obstruction of justice, the report outlines multiple attempts by the president to mislead the country, to interfere with the investigation, to make false statements to the American people and to urge others to lie to the American people… that these actions had a material impact on the investigation.” Schiff noted, “If the special counsel, as he made clear, had found evidence exonerating the president, he would have said so. He did not. He left that issue to the Congress of the…
