Marianne Williamson Not Sure What She's Doing Up Here With All These Crazy People
[Babylon Bee] DETROIT, MI‐Presidential candidate Marianne Williamson reported Tuesday that she was not sure what she was doing up on stage with "all these crazy people" after CNN's first Democratic debate.

Williamson pointed out that between a guy who praised the Soviet Union, a woman who pretended to be Native American to get ahead in life, and a woman who beats her staffers with a wooden spoon, she was clearly the adult during the debate.

"I mean, these guys are really far out there," Williamson said with a concerned look on her face as she smelled a crystal to calm her down. "It was pretty obvious I didn't belong up there. Man, where did the Democrats find such nutcases?"

"I'm starting to worry the crazy might rub off on me," she added. "I need to purge myself of the negative energy we just witnessed up there. Does anyone have a goat, a knife, and some candles?"

Gertz: Real Election Meddling Threat From China, Not Russia
[Free Beacon] Washington Free Beacon senior writer Bill Gertz appeared on Mark Levin's radio show Thursday evening to discuss his recent interview with Chinese dissident Guo Wengui about China's efforts to influence the 2020 presidential election.

In his conversation with Levin, Gertz reflected on his interview with Guo, who told Gertz earlier this week that the Chinese government has been deploying a prolonged campaign to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020. Gertz asserted the Chinese government may try to wait out Trump's time in office so it can negotiate trade deals with a new Democratic president if Trump loses in 2020.

Trump announced Thursday he would impose an additional 10-percent tariff on certain Chinese exports as a trade agreement between the United States and China has yet to materialize.

"The China threat to me is the most serious threat facing the country," Gertz told Levin.

He pointed to the economic integration between the U.S and China and how those relationships make it difficult for lawmakers and military officials to address Chinese aggression head-on, which he referred to as "an existential threat."

Levin and Gertz also discussed the growing military presence of Chinese forces in the South China Sea.

Dem. Presidential Candidate Tulsi Gabbard Is Now A Russian Agent
[Red State] The Democrat party and their media stenographers have one play in the playbook at this point and it’s Russia.

Anything they don’t like is Russia’s fault. Anyone they don’t like is a Russian agent. Do you eat hamburgers? You’re probably a Russian sympathizer according to The Washington Post. Everything is blamed on Russia, no matter how nonsensical the charge is.

We’ve seen this play out most recently with the #MoscowMitch hashtag and numerous media outlets rushing to telling us that Mitch McConnell is actually Putin’s puppet. It never stops and that means it’s not going to stop in the Democratic primaries either.

As I wrote this morning, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard absolutely wrecked Kamala Harris at the debate last night. If they haven’t seen it, here’s the clip again.

#3  Kamala is a stupid cow compared to her. These people and their $ million ego trips are no debates. They're like a badly run reality TV show.

And whatever she may be, Gabbard is not puerile like the rest of them.

#6  What if the entire Democratic Party is a Russian op designed to impede, retard and ultimately destroy America?

note: it seems to be working. especially the 'retard' part

Bruce ‘Caitlyn' Jenner is now in a ‘lesbian' relationship with another transgender and they want to have a baby
[Right Scoop] The complete backwardness of our society is on display in the relationship of Bruce "Caitlyn" Jenner and his new boyfriend who is also a transgender. They are calling it a ’lesbian’ relationship and they want to have a baby together so they can both be ’moms’

Caitlyn Jenner is reportedly feeling so broody that she is considering using a surrogate to become a mum at the age of 70.

She is currently in a relationship with 22-year-old Sophia Hutchens, who is also transgender.

The couple’s relationship has gone from strength to strength since they were first spotted together in 2017, although the pair have never officially confirmed their romance.

Speaking to Closer magazine, a source said: "Caitlyn and Sophia have spoken about starting a family together for the last year or so, and while Caitlyn’s already got ten children, she’s never had the chance to bring a child up in the role of a mother, which she’s always dreamed of doing."

The source also claims that Sophia has always wanted to be a mum too, with the pair deciding on getting a surrogate to make their long-held dreams of motherhood come true.

#6  I'm a couple years older than Mx Jenner. I ain't havin' no babies, nor buyin' no dogs. If I had a child, I'd at least want to expect to live long enough to see it get through kindergarten. Outliving your pets is cruel. Luckily I like my bananas on the greenish side.

Maybe it's going to be a "Win a chance to produce the next Kardashian" sweepstakes thingy.
