Senator Pocahontas

President Trump cracked wise about Senator Pocahontas to some Native American WWII heroes on Monday. Of course he was referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Warren, a blue eyed blonde, landed a job at Harvard Law School while claiming to be a Cherokee Indian, due to high cheekbones. Harvard touted her as the law school’s “first woman of color.”

Now she’s touchy about the subject. So she took Trump’s bait and called his comment a racial slur.

Mollie Hemingway says that makes no sense:

The only way the Pocahontas insult makes sense is as a joke about Warren’s false claim of being Native American. He’s not insulting her for being a Native American, because she’s not Native American. He’s highlighting how she gave employers and others false information about her tribal status while at Harvard and elsewhere.

 

Life and Times of Judge Roy Moore

Jailbait allegations persist against Republican U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore of Alabama. They say he chased teenyboppers in his thirties. He’s now 70.

A then high school senior claims she was pulled out of trigonometry class to take a phone call from him asking for a date. Another woman says she got him banned from a mall for for making “unwanted” advances. And another accuser says he tried to rape her when she was 16. He denied even knowing her. So she held up a high school year book he signed for her.

Moore told Sean Hannity he “generally” did not date teens as an adult. The mall manager says he never banned Moore from the mall. And the judge’s lawyer implied the yearbook signature is a forgery.

By the way, Saudi women get to drive next year.

 

Latino Victory Fund Scares Elephants

Latino Victory Fund

A moderate Democrat beat a moderate Republican to win the governor’s race in Virginia last week.

But a campaign ad by the Latino Victory Fund was anything but moderate. It featured an Ed Gillespie stand-in chasing minority children in a pickup truck. The ad only ran once but the Latino Viciory Fund president, Cristóbal Alex, says he’d do it again.

Some Republicans fear this could be a trend that will cost them their Senate majority.

Nothing really changed in Virginia though. A new Democrat simply replaced an old Democrat in the governor’s house.

Good Man With Gun Kills Mad Man With A Gun

It took a  good man with a gun, and no shoes, to put a stop to a bad mad man with a gun at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Stephen Willeford, an NRA instructor, ended the mad man’s killing spree at 26 dead.

Mad Man With a Gun

The bad man should not have had a gun.

While he was in the Air Force in 2012 he choked his wife, cracked his stepson’s skull, threatened to kill superiors and escaped from a mental hospital. His efforts earned him a year in the brig. Yet he passed a background check at the gun store.

That’s because military bureaucrats failed to send his file to an FBI database.

Boy Scouts Want Cookies

The Boy Scouts are now open to girls. And the Girl Scouts aren’t happy. They want to know what’s wrong with a girl being a Girl Scout.  Besides, what would you call a girl in the Boy Scouts?

Some people think this will lead to sex abuse in the woods. But I think it’s all about the cookies.

The Boy Scouts are beginning a hostile takeover of the Girl Scouts. James Hamblin in The Atlantic gets to the heart of the matter: “Girl Scouts sell cookies that are vastly superior to Boy Scout popcorn.”
