‘The Oath’ teaser trailer: Film about politics, family and the holidays

The holidays can be difficult enough without adding the often sensitive subject of politics. Generally, it’s advised to completely avoid such topics and continue talking in nonspecific, bland pleasantries.

It’s a win-win for everyone. Makes for a much better time, there’s no hurt feelings, rising blood pressures or elevated tempers.

However, one new upcoming film breaks this rule completely. “The Oath,” starring Ike Barinholtz and Tiffany Haddish, is about what happens when politics is interjected amongst family during Thanksgiving, and apparently, takes it to the extreme.

Given the fact that it’s a piece of work produced by Hollywood, it’s likely to take a liberal point of view, blaming conservatives alone for the toxic political climate. However, you never know. I mean crazy things have happened, right?

Anyway, check out the teaser trailer below:

Michigan Democratic lawmaker uses racial slur to refer to Asian opponent, apologizes…kind of

Here’s something that is going to absolutely blow some minds: Turns out Democrats are capable of racist language, too.  Hope you’re paying attention MSNBC, CNN and New York Times.

Apparently, Bettie Cook Scott, a Michigan state legislature, who represents the Detroit area, referred to her primary opponent, Stephanie Chang, also a Michigan state legislator, using racial slurs….several times.

Both state representatives were running for a state Senate seat in the Democratic primary when Scott is heard to have called Chang “ching-chang” and “ching-chong.” As bad as what that is, Cook reportedly did not stop there. She went on to say “these immigrants from China are coming over and taking our community from us.”

But wait there’s more. During the Aug. 7 primary contest, Scott was said to have been upset after seeing black people holding signs for her opponent, Chang. Scott said it “disgusts her seeing black people holding signs for these Asians and not supporting their own people.”

Luckily, Scott didn’t win, coming in third during her primary with 11 percent as Chang went on to win  with 49 percent of the vote.

Now, after losing and having had several groups, including the Michigan State Democratic Party, call on the sitting state representative to apologize for her disparaging remarks, she has done so…sort of.

Reporters not pleased with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘no press’ at town halls

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic socialist running for Congress in New York’s 14th District, has found a way to stop all of the negative press coverage.

Is it actually learning the issues? Speaking in full, coherent sentences and answering questions entirely? Debating those with whom she disagrees without resulting to sexism?

No, her solution is all much simpler than that. After recent events where the rising socialist superstar in the Democratic party was “mobbed,” her campaign has decided to ban press from two public events.

Well, the move by the future of the “future of the Democratic party” has even some journalists upset.

Check out these tweets:

Not giving terrific answers, not allowing the press into her public events, perhaps this running for public office thing isn’t for her?

New York Gov. Cuomo says America ‘never was that great,’ Republicans respond perfectly

Politicians, for all the intelligence they want you and I to believe they possess, can sure make idiotic statements and do awfully dumb things.

For example, liberal Democrat New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo really stepped up the stupidity with a statement he made Thursday. According to the governor of the Empire State, “we’re not going to make America great again – it was never that great.”

Remember, this is coming from a sitting governor. What makes Cuomo’s moronic pronouncement even worse is the fact that he’s running for a third term as governor of New York. Cuomo is currently being challenged by Democratic socialist and Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, who is running to the left of him.

Of course, President Trump had a response to Cuomo’s absurd, progressive-vote-seeking remark.

Anyway, Republicans in New York had the absolutely best response to the super woke governor’s stupid remark: a bus ticket to Canada.

It’s currently unknown if the governor has accepted the one-way ticket to the Great White North, but here’s hoping!

Former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz endorses Republican Mike Braun

The race between incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly and challenger Republican Mike Braun is one race sure to get more and more national attention as we move closer and closer to November.

Why? Well, Donnelly’s seat is an easy target for Republicans. Indiana is a fairly red state and went overwhelmingly for Trump. Democrat Donnelly has cast some votes that are going to hurt him with Hoosiers for sure.

Either way, look for both parties and many, many PACS to become heavily invested in this race.  In addition to commercials and money, another common way to swing voters are endorsements. And Mike Braun just got what is likely the biggest endorsement thus far in the race for Indiana’s senate seat.

Lou Holtz, former Notre Dame football coach, wrote a column in which he provided his ringing endorsement of Braun.

In part, Holtz writes:

I trust Mike Braun to go to Washington and represent what is in the best interest of the people of Indiana and continue being guided by the philosophies that have been so successful for him as a state senator.

He goes on to say:

Mike is an individual who knows how to win and that you do this by helping other people get what they want.

 

‘Queer Eye’ star says not all Republicans are racist…and now people are upset?

I gotta admit that I’ve never watched “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” or even heard of Johnathan Van Ness before, but apparently he’s a big deal and that show is fairly popular. Regardless, Van Ness is now under fire for trying to bring a little bit of reason to our political climate.

Take a look at Van Ness’ tweets that have people all bent out of shape.

I know, I know how horrible! For someone to not actually generalize an entire group of people is an absolute tragedy! This kind of thinking will not be tolerated especially by the tolerant left.

Take a look at some of the well-thought out and rational responses to Van Ness’ triggering tweets.

Be warned: the stupidity is strong with these.

Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly meets with Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh

Indiana Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly met with Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Wednesday.

Kavanaugh was nominated by President Trump to fill the seat being vacated by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. If confirmed, this will be President Trump’s second appointment to the highest court in the land.

However, while the Republicans do hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate, Trump and the Republicans will likely need a few Democrat votes here and there in order to confirm Kavanaugh.

Why? Well, no one is quite sure what the health of Arizona Sen. John McCain will be like at the time of the vote and Sens. Olympia Snowe of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are wildcards, who may or may not vote for Trump’s man.  So, enter blue-dog Democrats.

Sen. Donnelly is an extremely conservative Democrat when compared to the likes of his fellow party members Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren. Also, add to the mix the Donnelly is currently in a tough re-election campaign against Republican Mike Braun in Indiana, a state that went overwhelmingly for Trump just a little less than two years ago.

He’s the perfect kind of Democrat to vote for Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, right?

Well, not so fast.

Apparently, Donnelly is still undecided according to the statement put out by his office.

But let’s be honest, Donnelly is a tough position when it comes to his vote for Kavanaugh.

He doesn’t vote for Kavanaugh, pleases Schumer and the rest of Democratic party leadership, but angers Hoosiers and independents, soft Republicans that would’ve voted for him in November. He votes to confirm Kavanuagh, angers Schumer and his Democratic buddies in D.C. and Democrats back home in Indiana.

Let’s remember Donnelly voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s first appointee to the Supreme Court nominee.

My guess: He votes for Kavanaugh and hopes it doesn’t hurt him too badly with Democrats right before his re-election chances.
