The Latest Email Spam from @BarackObama

[GP]: Anyone else getting these emails? It looks like @BarackObama — not the president, but the shadowy 501(c)(4) — is allowing its email list to be used by his “grassroots” supporters to fundraise for their own pet projects. In this case, I’m being asked to donate for “children sick of canser” [sic].

However, fundraising isn’t going so well. . .

And this is at least the second email I’ve gotten from this Obamaton. 

Personally, I hope team @BarackObama continues doing this because the more OFA dilutes the president’s brand, the better it is for conservatives.

Exit question: Why are Obama supporters — who make up the vast number in the OFA database — refusing to help children with “canser?” I guess they’re waiting for Obamacare to pick up the slack.

Trump and the ‘Racist Tweets’

What does “racist” even mean anymore? Racism is the headline on President Trump’s Sunday tweets -- the media-Democrat complex assiduously describes them as “racist tweets” as if that were a fact rather than a trope. I don’t think they were racist; I think they were abjectly stupid. Like many ... Read More

How Beto Made Himself into White-Privilege Guy

Robert Francis O’Rourke is white. If it’s any consolation, he’s very sorry about that. “Beto” has been running from his Irish ancestry for some time now. Long before the Left fell headlong into the logical termini of its triune fascination with race, power, and privilege, O’Rourke sensed that there ... Read More
