Weekly Wrap-Up

News flash: Now that it’s politically expedient, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand thinks Bill Clinton should have resigned after being accused of sexual assault – and surprise, surprise, she’s using this newfound indignation to go after President Trump. 

“Things have changed today, and I think under those circumstances there should be a very different reaction," Gillibrand said. Things have changed since when – April 2016, when she campaigned for Hillary with Bill Clinton? She knew then exactly what he had been accused of and how his accusers had been treated (by Bill AND Hillary) and had no qualms about appearing with him – but now she wants to distance herself from the Clintons? 

As Seth Mandel notes in the New York Post, “The Clintons have thrown many contemporaries under the bus in their quarter-century atop Democratic circles. Hopefully there’s still room under there for two more.” Sen. Gillibrand is seeing to it that there is.

And make no mistake: If Hillary Clinton had won the White House, Sen. Gillibrand would NOT be saying this. The only reason she’s calling out Bill Clinton is because the Clintons’ political power has been virtually depleted – and it’s not just conservatives noticing this hypocrisy

Of course, Hillary did not win the White House, and Thanksgiving is a perfect time to remember that. For our new Weekly Poll, I’m giving you three Thanksgiving-themed questions to consider: 

  1. As a conservative, why are you thankful to have President Trump in the White House? It’s been a turbulent first year for the Trump Administration but he has given us plenty to be thankful for in 2017.
  2. In general, what are you MOST grateful for as we welcome the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons? I have lots to be thankful for, and I’m sure you do too!
  3. What's your favorite part of Thanksgiving - eating? Relaxing? Shopping? Watching football? I look forward to the responses on this one.

This week is giving us proof of the old saying, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” 

Democrats want to impeach a Republican President – nothing new there.

Global warming activists are claiming that the planet is doomed – just as they always have.

Socialism doesn’t work – it never has.

Sanctuary cities are dangerous and indefensible – no matter how much the liberals try to hide behind the Constitution.

Sen. Chuck Schumer is twisting the facts about conservative policies – this time it’s tax relief.  

And Gov. Andrew Cuomo sounds like a middle-school bully with his temper tantrums and name-calling – and to hear some members of Congress tell it, Cuomo is outright lying about talks they’ve supposedly had and things they’ve allegedly said.   

I’m thankful to all of our Conservative Party friends and supporters who stand with us as we call out the liberals’ terrible ideas and bad behavior. We fight the good fight because you are on our side – I appreciate that and wish you and your family and very Happy Thanksgiving!
