Is Joy Behar sure that hearing God’s voice means you’re crazy?

It’s beginning to be glaringly apparent that those on the left cannot recognize the absurd double standard that exists in almost everything they say.  On one day, a specific kind of logic applies to one scenario.  Then, the next day, those same people mock the logic that was offered as gospel the day before.

Take for instance the liberal notion that stricter gun laws prevent mass shootings.  If that’s true, then why do the same individuals who demand restrictions on gun ownership also claim that if access to abortion is limited, women looking to terminate a pregnancy will find a way to kill babies in back alleys?

Liberals refute themselves when discussing people, too.  Those on the left will vilify a political figure they disagree with for behavior that one month prior they celebrated in one of their own.

A recent example of this kind of hypocrisy took place on The View, when one of the president’s most vocal critics decided that Mike Pence is “mentally ill.”  It happened during a “hot topics” segment, when a tape of disgruntled ex-Trump White House staffer and former Apprentice star Omarosa Manigault Newman aired dirty laundry in the company of her Celebrity Big Brother competitors.

A supposed lover of Jesus, Omarosa counseled the group:

As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence.  Everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life.  I am Christian, I love Jesus, but [Pence] thinks Jesus tells him to say things.

In the clip, Ms. Newman referred to Pence as “extreme,” which, ironically, is the kind of disciple Scripture demands.

Nevertheless, upon hearing Omarosa’s critical remarks, The View crew, who regularly pan Trump, responded to Omarosa’s fodder like a pack of salivating wolves.

Co-host and self-described “faithful … Catholic” Sunny Hostin expressed negative feelings about Pence because, Hostin said, when the vice president was governor of Indiana, he was a “hated figure” who tended to put a “religious veneer” on things.  No one knows whether Mr. Pence ever claimed to speak in tongues, but that didn’t stop Hostin from pontificating, “I don’t know that I want my vice president, you know, speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.”

Although Hillary Clinton regularly “communed” with Eleanor Roosevelt, the female panel agreed that having a leader who thinks he hears Jesus’s voice is a problem.  Apparently, that consensus didn’t go far enough; Joy Behar had to take things a step farther when she offered up a psychiatric diagnosis based on Pence hearing Jesus’s voice, which Behar said is synonymous with “mental illness.”

The View co-host told the other ladies, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus.  It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you.  That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct, hearing voices.”

Behar couldn’t leave it at that.  Instead, she continued by making a sarcastic reference to the wisdom Pence exercises concerning male-female relationships in the age of #MeToo.  Joy, who was photographed once grabbing the late Robin Williams’s crotch, continued by asking, “My question is, can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room?”

Joy Behar’s remark was not only discriminatory, but perplexing, especially coming from a Muslim apologist.

Why?  Because in November of 2017, after writing the book The Great Gasbag: An A-to-Z Guide to Surviving Trump World, while appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Behar said she penned the survival guide “Because [she was] being told by God to save this country.”

In other words, just three months before calling Mike Pence “mentally ill,” Joy Behar admitted that God spoke to her and that she wrote a book in response to conversation she had with the Almighty.  Behar might not have realized it, but by calling Pence “mentally ill,” she tacitly admitted that her book about the “Great Gasbag” was inspired by a questionable psychological state.

Then again, let’s remember that based on the political expediency of what is said, liberals do tend to vacillate between condemnation and adoration.  Leftist shills like Joy Behar practice political pragmatism at its finest.

Nevertheless, by labeling Pence psychologically unfit, Behar may have talked herself into apolitical corner, especially if The View airs the clip of Oprah’s 60 Minutes Overtime interview on CBS’s This Morning.

In that conversation, Oprah, a woman Joy Behar feels is capable of beating the “Great Gasbag,” is asked by CBS senior producer Ann Silvio if the rumors of a presidential bid are true.  During the sit-down, Oprah revealed that after the Cecil B. de Mille Award speech she gave at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards, “wealthy men began calling to tell her to run and that they’d raise $1-billion to help her campaign.”

Winfrey told the curious correspondent, “I think that when you have that many people whose opinions you value coming at you, it’s worthy of thinking about.”

Then the billionaire mogul uttered something Joy Behar needs to think about before reaffirming her desire to have the Big O “run the world.”  Oprah clarified that despite all the offers from affluent men, “[she’s] never looked outside for other people to tell [her] when [she] should be making a move.”

Unsure whether a run for the White House is the direction she should take, Winfrey matter-of-factly asked Silvio, “If God actually wanted me to run, wouldn’t God kind of tell me?”  Then the former talk show host announced, “And I haven’t heard that.”

Not to burst the “Oprah-4-President” bubble, but based on Joy’s assessment of Pence, doesn’t the great black hope for foolproof victory over Donald Trump measure up to Behar’s “mentally ill” yardstick?

With that in mind, Jesus is probably still whispering political directives into the View co-host’s ear.  The dutiful follower that she is, Joy obeys, and “saves this country,” by continuing to embody the liberal mindset, whose inconsistent statements ensure that the “Great Gasbag” and his “mentally ill” vice president will run America for another seven years.

Putting Obama on Hold

Originally posted at American Thinker blog

From the very beginning of his presidency, Barack Obama has set the tone for his relationships with world leaders.  It is pretty much accepted that unless you’re a non-Western monarch, don’t expect Barack Obama to bow to you.

Now we come to find out that David Cameron purportedly preferred playing a third set of tennis with an old friend named Charlie Brooks over taking a telephone call from the US president.  Charlie Brooks claims that he was playing tennis with Cameron at his official residence in Chequers when Obama rang up the British Prime Minister.

According to Mr. Brooks, in the heat of intense competition Prime Minister Cameron allegedly said to his opponent, who had already won two sets, “I think we’ve got time for a third set.” He then turned to the person relaying the message and requested that they tell the caller that he’d phone him back later.

Mr. Cameron has had to put distance between himself and his neighbor/former Eton schoolmate Charlie Brooks and Brooks’ tabloid editor wife Rebekah, both of whom are embroiled in a phone-hacking scandal.

Now Downing Street is questioning Mr. Brooks’ story, claiming that “‘we are scratching our heads’ over Charlie’s recollection of the match and Mr. Obama’s intervention.”  Damian McBride, a former press adviser to Gordon Brown, speculated that what happened might have been a “ruse designed to get the Prime Minister out of the tennis match.”

President Obama is reaping what he’s sown. Either way, there is cosmic justice in Mr. Brooks’ telephone tale.  For starters, it’s no secret that Barack Obama is habitually tardy.  As a senator he was renowned for “running late,” and as president, well let’s just say Obama hasn’t exactly been punctual.  Therefore, David Cameron may have felt a man who asks everyone to wait for him shouldn’t balk at being put on hold.

Also, Barack Obama’s continued aloofness toward Binyamin Netanyahu may have set a global precedent that it’s acceptable to be dismissive of world leaders.  In 2010, after “failing to extract a written promise of concessions on settlements,” Obama walked out of his meeting with Netanyahu and retired to the White House private quarters for supper with Shelley and the girls.

In the overall scheme of mutual discourtesy, which is worse — telling Obama “I’ll ring you back after the next set,” or humiliating an ally by leaving him sitting in a room while you go upstairs and have a leisurely dinner with the wife and kids? It could be that, by refusing Obama’s phone call, David Cameron was merely emulating a man notorious for being flippant, standoffish, and rude toward others.

In lieu of meeting with Binyamin Netanyahu, leader of a nation currently being threatened with nuclear annihilation,Obama chose to whoop it up with Whoopi Goldberg on “The View,” attend some key fundraisers, and crack jokes with late night comedian David Letterman.  So, if he really was told, “Sorry Mr. President, Mr. Cameron is unavailable and will have to get back to you,” the President was simply getting back a small portion of what he regularly dishes out.

Furthermore, second only to Barack Obama, who is “very fond” of playing basketball and “chillaxing,” David Cameron is also said to be “very fond” of playing tennis and “chillaxing.”  Who better than a hoopster like Barack to understand a world leader refusing a phone call because he’s in the midst of a sweaty tennis match?

In the end, whether true or false, the story that the Prime Minister refused a call from President Obama while playing tennis does seem plausible.  After all, it’s Barack Obama who has set a contemptuous tone whereby, in pursuit of frivolous non-priorities, a world leader can now feel perfectly justified dismissing a call from a ‘close’ ally.

Rosie’s Guilt-Free Radio Show

Rosie O’Donnell is one of the left’s most colorful spokespersons.  Presently, O’Donnell hosts an XM/Sirius radio show, which provides a perfect platform for illogical liberal women. Unlike when O’Donnell hosted a TV show, radio listeners are spared being shot in the head by flying Fling Shot Koosh Balls. Instead, the former host of The View demands undivided attention as she opines on subjects like: Regret is a silly post-abortion emotion.

Recently, raunchy comedian Chelsea Handler was a guest on Rosie radio. Just as she had in a NY Times interview, Handler bragged that at sixteen she had an abortion.  To the delight of Rosie O and her executive producer, comedian Janette Barber, jokester Handler expressed how pleased she was that she disposed of the baby and how, to this day, she feels zero guilt over the decision.

Three-times-over adoptive mother Rosie and sidekick Janette “agreed that it was courageous of Handler both to reveal the abortion and to say she doesn’t regret it.”  Are the moral compasses of these women so twisted they can actually praise callously handing over their unborn offspring to a red biohazard bag?

Chelsea boldly shared, “I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise, I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are the things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about.”  Seems that in some circles, murder is acceptable, but failing to be ‘honest’ about it is not.

Relieved her child didn’t make it out of the womb, Ms. Handler said the MTV reality show “16 and Pregnant,” which chronicles teen pregnancy, makes her “…want to kill somebody.” Based on her history, Chelsea is probably capable of following through on that impulse without apology or regret, unless she has a problem looking her victims in the eye.

Nonetheless, as the three ladies celebrated the benefit of guilt-free murder, a female called in and spoiled the fun by admitting that in her “late thirties and early forties,” she “had several abortions.” The woman confessed to a pained conscience.  That was when Janette Barber “really lost it.” Janette said feeling bad about submitting the unborn to burning, suctioning, and dismemberment is on par with saying, “Yeah, why were you in that alley in short shorts when you got raped?”

Talk about apples and oranges.  A more fitting comparison to rape would be feeling guilty over a spontaneous miscarriage. Shame over abortion is as appropriate an emotion as guilt for driving drunk and killing someone. Both dilation and curettage and DWI have levels of control that the victims of miscarriage and rape are denied.

In response, Rosie surprisingly interjected a measure of sanity into the bizarre discussion: “Well, it’s different, because one is preventable and one isn’t, right?  If you’re in an alley and you’re raped, you don’t have any control.” Rosie was correct. The decision to flush a fetus from the safety of the womb comes with the choice to opt out

Abortion advocate and charity maven Barber jumped into the fray again, saying “I think if you want an abortion, you get an abortion…I would never force anyone to get an abortion…But I’d fight to the freakin’ death for somebody’s right to have an abortion.”

In keeping with the feel-no-guilt thinking, Janette shared that when she was a kid, if abortion wasn’t legal and the need arose, she planned to deal with the dilemma herself. Ms. Barber, author of Embracing your Big Fat Ass, said that she planned to hide her ‘big fat’ belly with tent dresses, give birth in the woods, “have it, kill it, and bury it, ‘cause I don’t know how else I would get rid of it if I lost that right.”

And so guest Chelsea Handler admitted a latent desire to kill teens who refuse to have abortions; Barber vowed to fight to the “death” to preserve the right to choose and shared that she’d even be willing to commit infanticide and bury the evidence, and Rosie moderated. The truth is that these sad examples of womanhood are actually some of the finest role models liberalism has to offer.

And so, on behalf of liberal women everywhere, gay marriage-promoter/9-11 conspiracy theorist/radio talk show host Rosie O’Donnell, multi-faceted big mouth Janelle Barber, and vulgar Chelsea Handler sent a clear message bouncing off the XM/Sirius satellite: Pregnant  and 16?  Have an abortion, express honesty and pride over the decision, and prove your lack of remorse by publicly espousing the advantages of the procedure. But when, from the depths of the grave, the cry of the innocent tugs on your conscience for decades to come, whatever you do, don’t admit it.

The Racial Royal Wedding Test

Originally posted at American Thinker blog

There are people in this world whose main objective is to scrutinize other people’s actions.  Every occasion and interaction is a test. What is said and done is measured against a strict backdrop where one slip-up results in condemnation.

According to Sherri Shepherd of ‘The View,’ apparently not even the royal wedding is exempt from inspection and subsequent judgment.  Seems that while the rest of the world admired Kate Middleton’s Grace Kelly-inspired wedding dress and millions, immersed in history and royal tradition, scanned the crowd for celebrities and marveled at “the English field maples and hornbeams … along the nave,” Sherri focused on something quite different.

Little did the British monarchy know that as Kate proceeded down the aisle of Westminster Abbey to “I Was Glad,” the outspoken host from ‘The View’ was anything but glad and was in the throes of a UK version of a “Rosa Parks moment.”

Sherri Shepherd said she and ‘The View’ producer Audrey Jones had “earlier searched through the footage of guests at Westminster Abbey… looking for the black people in the wedding … because we were like ‘where are the black people?’”

For some, counting numbers of individuals in a crowd based on race is a fulltime job.  Clearly, Shepherd is so obsessed with finding reasons to be offended that, for her, the only thing worth noticing in the 1000 year-old Abbey was the color of the wedding guests.

Said Sherri:  “It was like where’s Waldo, where are the black people? We found one little black child in the choir but, where’s the black people at this wedding. They are segregated but they are at the front so we have our Rosa Parks moment. I don’t know why they put all the black people over here but they are at the front of the wedding so I ain’t complaining, they got in the front.”

It appears that in order to pass the “Sherri Shepherd Royal Wedding Test,” the brown-skinned people not only had to be on the guest list, but a passing grade hinged on the seating arrangement.

Why didn’t Sherry just accuse the royals of leaving Barry and Shelley home based on the color of their skin? All that was missing from the commentary was a cartoon light bulb turning on above Shepherd’s pink-feathered fascinator, prompting her to share how the royal family exhibits racist tendencies because the Obamas were forced to watch the nuptials on TV instead of from the VIP section of Westminster Abbey.

Some of the ladies on the talk show are famous for being racially offended. A few days prior to the royal wedding, Sherri’s co-host Whoopi Goldberg clarified the impetus behind Sherri’s view. While opining on withheld birth certificates and men with captivating coifs, Whoopi gave voice to the racial test mentality Sherri exercised when Goldberg said:

“I’m getting tired trying not to find things slightly racist…But, being black, when you say, ‘Y’know, this is racist,’ 9,000 people say, ‘Oh, you’re just playing the race card.’ Well, you know, I’m playing the damn card now.”

Following Whoopi’s lead, Sherri Shepherd, while commenting on the royal wedding, joined ranks with those on the left who have decided to stop trying “not to find things slightly racist” and commenced with “playing the damn card now.” Ms. Shepherd’s counting up what she thought was a shamefully limited number of black guests in the cathedral seemed to imply that the royal newlyweds belonged in the same racist category as Trump, Fox News, the Tea Party and anyone else who goes about their business refusing to be fixated on skin color.

Cause Couture

Despite the state of the American economy and the President telling already cash-strapped Americans they have to “get used” to paying $5 a gallon for gasoline, Michelle showed support for America’s garment industry by frolicking about in a costly The Row collection skirt.

Last week, before the air traffic control/mid-air/runway brouhaha, Michelle Obama emerged on ‘The View’ in a skirt designed by ‘Full House’ stars and twin clothing designers Ashley and Kate Olsen. “Mrs. Obama, who appeared on the show with Jill Biden, teamed the pale grey pleated Evelyn skirt, worth $1,170 with a cream V-neck and kitten-heel shoes.”

Including accessories, the cost of the breezy morning-talk show ensemble was likely a tick above the $2,000 mark.  In spite of this, economically taxed Americans should go easy on Michelle, because just like her husband, at the core of all that she does is a desire to help make the American Dream a reality for the little people – like the diminutive Ashley Olsen, who once shared that “She would love to see Michelle wear one of her designs.”

Thanks to the bounteousness of Mrs. Obama, the $100 million sitcom sister team had “a dream come true” when Michelle visited Whoopi, Barb, Joy, Liz, and Sherri bedecked in Olsen designed haute couture.

Michelle and BFF Jill Biden chatted with the ladies of ‘The View’ about “Joining Forces,” the “new initiative to help military families.”  Initially one would think that with the rate of pay that military families subsist on, Michelle flitting about in designer duds while speaking on behalf of “helping military families” was almost as insensitive as bagging groceries at a food bank shod in $540 sneakers.

But who knows, maybe MObama’s true motive for wearing Lanvin sneakers while volunteering at a food pantry was simply an attempt to relate to the homeless, hungry, secondhand-wearing soup kitchen patrons and conveying a message, by way of fashion, to the down-and-out that occasionally even a First Lady is forced to humbly wear sneakers.

With each outfit change, it’s becoming increasingly evident that concern for the public may be the driving force behind Mrs. Obama’s reputation as a style icon. More and more Michelle’s chic clothing choices can be traced directly to the theme of a high-profile cause.

Take for example the Tory Burch Connell gardening boots at $500 a pair – those are clearly about healthy eating; a $2,500 secondhand vintage Christmas dress – can anybody say “recycling?” Kitten heels – animal rights. How about the $1,170 Olsen-twin-designed ‘The Row’ skirt – those “pale grey pleats” scream support for the American military and exhibit solidarity with the U.S. garment industry.

“Though expensive, the President’s wife’s choice represents a support of American industry, as all of the Olsen twins’ designs are made in the U.S.”

Silly me – all along I misjudged Michelle.  I was under the impression that the First Lady’s high-priced fashion choices were commissioned by her current stylist – whose name and identity no one knows – and based on color, mood, or event.  Who would have guessed that Michelle’s affinity for Jason Wu was altruistic in nature?

So as President Obama concentrates on solving the border security problem with Mexican-American immigration expert/Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria, Michelle, on behalf of the American military, healthy eating, recycling and the garment industry, is busy exercising her biceps by snatching up rack-after-rack of hundreds of thousands of dollars in couture garments.

By self-sacrificially donning expensive high-end designer duds, every time she zips up Michelle wants America to rest assured she’s only doing so in support of a righteous cause.

Fact Checker-in-Chief – American Thinker – August 3, 2010

Last week the biggest media hog in the history of the American presidency appeared on ABC’s  “The View.” Sitting cross-legged on the couch squeezed securely between Barbara Walters and Joy Behar, the President pinned the blame for the racially explosive Shirley Sherrod incident on a media culture that Obama claims “doesn’t always get the facts right.”

Obama would know.  Based on some of Barack’s fact-filled comments, the President is certainly a stickler for specifics.  Take for instance Obama efficiently keeping track of the nation’s “57 states.” Particulars like state counting prove Barack is a quintessential authority on specifics.

Why just this week, the Obama administration stringently vetted three unfortunates and strutted out-of-work poster children into the Rose Garden to share tales of unemployment woe.  The only problem was one jobless woman in the tragic trio, the one Obama held hands with, was a convicted felon.

President Barack Obama posed with a Charlottesville resident at a White House event … Court records show she’s been found guilty of two crimes and now the White House says she wouldn’t have been invited if officials had known about her past.

In an attempt to manipulate America, Obama employed the felonious Leslie Macko as an example of someone deserving extended unemployment benefits. As a result, the President who accused the media of failing to vet the facts came to the podium unaware he was clasping the hand of a criminal offender.

Obama said, “We need to extend unemployment compensation benefits for women like Leslie Macko, who lost her job at a fitness center last year, and has been looking for work ever since. Because she’s eligible for only a few more weeks of unemployment, she’s doing what she never thought she’d have to do…She’s turning to her father for financial support.”

Leslie Macko was convicted of prescription fraud and grand larceny, a minor detail that makes Obama’s comments somewhat true.  The woman has been known in the past to “turn elsewhere” for financial support.

If only Obama been aware beforehand, Leslie would have presented the President the perfect argument for the extension of unemployment benefits for six more months.  Obama could have appealed to the public by showing how failure to submit to liberal policies can lead an innocent woman into a life of crime.

Right around the time Barack was schmoozing the ladies of “The View,” Robert Gibbs was busy dodging the press.  Gibbs claimed he didn’t “know the specifics” about why Leslie Macko was in the Rose Garden with Obama.

A convicted felon held hands with the President of the United States and the White House Press Secretary, when asked about the security breach, responded with “I don’t know the specifics?”

Gibbs then said, “But it’s safe to say, had we known [about the charges against her] she wouldn’t have been here.”  In other words, Obama and his crack team, like the media the President censured for careless fact checking failed themselves in “getting the facts right?”
