What This Former Obama Official Running for Congress Wrote About the U.S. Response to 9/11 Should Disqualify Her From the Race

Published

on

Lauren Baer, a former Obama administration official running for Congress in Florida recently wrote up an article calling the United States’ response to 9/11 a “moment of hypocrisy.”

This is the kind of person the left just absolutely adores, because you just can’t be a Democrat without hating your own country.

Lauren Baer, who worked for the State Department under both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, also criticized the country’s “shameful history” while hoping the attack, which killed nearly 3,000 people, would make America more “humble and humane.”

Baer, a Democrat, is now running for Congress in Florida’s 18th District against incumbent U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, a Republican. The district is along the state’s Atlantic coast, north of Miami.

But Baer has not received an endorsement from former President Barack Obama, who has opted against endorsing any Democratic candidates in Florida this year.

Baer’s writings came during her years at Harvard University, when she worked for the Harvard Crimson, a student-run publication. Her column titled “From Hypocrisy to Humanity” appeared Oct. 10, 2001 – just a month after the attacks.

“Some people speak of wanting an America to emerge from these events that is stronger and more proud,” Baer wrote. “I wish to see an America emerge that is humbler and more humane.”

She then wrote that America had a “shameful history” when it comes to standing up for its values.

“At the same time that America calls on the world to ardently preserve our sacred values, it must live up to a shameful history of having so rarely stood up for those values itself,” the now-Democratic candidate wrote.

“By the rhetoric of an attack on American values anywhere being an attack on security everywhere, they should have warranted a meaningful U.S. response,” Baer wrote. “But the U.S. response to these atrocities was meager, if it existed at all.”

This kind of thing should disqualify someone from running for office, but unfortunately, it doesn’t. On the flip side, perhaps her comments will stir up folks enough to vote against her and send a message to her that they don’t want freedom haters to represent them in Congress.

The way we responded to 9/11 was the right thing to do. Justice needed to be served and these terrorist groups needed a firm boot up the backside, which is precisely what we gave them.

Perhaps one day Baer will learn what it means to truly love your country.

EXPOSED: Bernie Sanders Once Wrote Sex Fantasy About Woman Being Raped

Hey, MSM – Over here!

John Salvatore

Published

on

Vermont Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders has a wild past that includes praising communist nations and disparaging the United States.

Also, he once penned an op-ed in the 70s about how women fantasize about being raped.

If Bernie was a Republican and the mainstream media got word of this, he’d be toast.

Fortunately for Bernie, he gets a pass.

From Federalist Papers:

On his radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck and co-host Stu Burguiere took some time to revisit an essay Sanders wrote in 1972, originally for the Vermont Freeman. It’s…something else:

A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused.

A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by 3 men simultaneously.

The man and woman get dressed up on Sunday — and go to Church, or maybe to their ‘revolutionary’ political meeting.

Have you ever looked at the Stag, Man, Hero, Tough magazines on the shelf of your local bookstore? Do you know why the newspaper with the articles like ‘Girl 12 raped by 14 men’ sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?

WATCH:

Back in November 2018, dozens and dozens of people showed up for Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s rally featuring Sanders as the main speaker.

And that’s about it.

It would appear as if the auditorium is darn near entirely empty.

WATCH:

While offering zero evidence, Bernie labeled President Trump using four despicable words.

Any guesses?

….take a second to think about it…

………………………………..

Here they are: racist, sexist, homophobic, and bigoted.

Not exactly original, Bernie.

Sanders noted:

I just returned on Saturday from a nine-state tour working with great candidates all across this country. And I can tell you there are candidates and supporters working hour after hour to make sure we end one-party control of the United States government. They are working to make certain that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate.

He continued:

While taking back the House and the Senate is obviously of enormous importance, it is not enough. What we need right now, in governors’ chairs all across this country, are governors who are gonna stand with the working people; they’re gonna stand with the elderly; they’re gonna stand with the children; they’re gonna stand with the poor, and they’re gonna fight for an agenda and an economy for all of us, not just the one percent.

MSNBC Floats Conspiracy That Smollett Was FRAMED By Trump-Supporting Cops

Is this real life? Even after all the evidence against Jussie!?

John Salvatore

Published

on

The world now knows that “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was charged with a felony and arrested by the Chicago Police Department.

He orchestrated a hate crime against himself because he was upset with his pay on the show ($65,000 per episode) and that he was soon going to be written off.

It is now possible he’ll do time behind bars.

MSNBC decided to give a guest time to speak on how he thinks Smollett was framed by Trump-supporting cops.

No joke.

Even after all the evidence we’ve seen? Wow.

Really?

From Fox News:

MSNBC finally got around to covering the scandal surrounding “Empire” star Jussie Smollett and allowed a guest to float a theory that Trump-supporting cops are lying about the case.

[…]

“It was incredibly shocking on day one to see the police department call it a racist and homophobic attack,” Stafford said. “As someone that has been investigating these for years in Chicago, that was really unprecedented… people in the background were worried they were leaning into this victim part of the story because they didn’t believe him and they wanted to use it against him at the end, when they were able to prove that he was lying.”

Continued:

“The police were openly confirming and not confirming certain reports and not doing it to other parts of the story, due to the vocal nature in this case, it was really peculiar,” Stafford said. “People have a lot of reason to not trust them… a deep history of openly lying to citizens. This police department did, in 2016, openly, through their union support Donald Trump.”

He said that since the case focused on alleged attackers wearing Trump hats and shouting “MAGA country,” there are grounds to question if the police are being truthful.

MSNBC is a much funnier network than Comedy Central. They know what makes people laugh and 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…

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.
