Dem Mayor Says Spending Taxpayer Money on Luxury Plane Trips Was Necessary Because She’s a Black Woman

“Travel accommodations are a matter of safety.”

Democratic Mayor of New Orleans LaToya Cantrell asserted that it was necessary to spend tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars on luxury plane trips because as a black woman, she would have been unsafe flying economy.

Yes, really.

Cantrell made the comments in response to criticism over the $30,000 she spent on first class seats traveling to France and Switzerland.

The Mayor is refusing to refund the money, claiming that her “travel accommodations are a matter of safety, not luxury,” despite the fact that her security entourage traveled in coach during the trips.

“As the mother of a young child whom I live for, I am going to protect myself by any reasonable means in order to ensure I am there to see her grow into the strong woman I am raising her to be,” Cantrell bizarrely argued.

“Anyone who wants to question how I protect myself just doesn’t understand the world black women walk in,” she added.

Yes, I’m sure the struggle of being a wealthy, powerful politician is real and that Cantrell’s very life might be in danger if she isn’t lounging in luxury while quaffing champagne in first class at taxpayer expense.

Claiming that she was “doing business on behalf of the city” when she took the luxury trips to Switzerland in July and France earlier this year, the Mayor violated city policy which states that officials “are required to purchase the lowest airfare available” and can only upgrade at their own expense.

However, Cantrell is refusing to pay up.

“All expenses incurred doing business on behalf of the city of New Orleans will not be reimbursed to the city of New Orleans,” she said.

Cantrell also spent over $2,800 dollars in March on a first-class trip to Miami for a US Conference of Mayors in addition to $2,300 on a luxury flight to a Conference of Mayors meeting in Washington.

On both occasions, her staff spent significantly less on the flights, meaning Cantrell was enjoying herself in first while they were all packed together in economy.

NYT ‘Right Wing Conspiracy Theory’ Comes True In Less Than 24 Hours

Published

The latest salvo from the left in the ongoing ‘unpersoning’ of anyone (on the right) who questions election integrity fell flat on its face in less than a day.

On Tuesday, the New York Times framed a story circulating on the right over a software company’s connection with the Chinese Communist Party as a “right-wing conspiracy theory.”

“At an invitation-only conference in August at a secret location southeast of Phoenix, a group of election deniers unspooled a new conspiracy theory about the 2020 presidential outcome,” was the Times’ original lede (via the Daily Caller).

In it, the Times wrote that “right-wing” election deniers in Arizona had fabricated a conspiracy theory that election software company Konnech had secret ties to the CCP, and was passing them information on around two million US poll workers.

“In the two years since former President Donald J. Trump lost his re-election bid, conspiracy theorists have subjected election officials and private companies that play a major role in elections to a barrage of outlandish voter fraud claims,” reads the article. “But the attacks on Konnech demonstrate how far-right election deniers are also giving more attention to new and more secondary companies and groups. Their claims often find a receptive online audience, which then uses the assertions to raise doubts about the integrity of American elections.”

The next morning, Konnech executive Eugene Yu was arrested for the alleged theft of poll workers’ personal information.

Whoops… assholes.

Former Clinton Advisor Says Hillary May Run In 2024

“I see more and more signs that Hillary’s going to run”

Following comments criticising the handling of mass immigration on the southern border, a long time Clinton advisor says that it appears Hillary may be positioning herself for another presidential run in 2024.

The New York Post reports that strategist Dick Morris believes Hillary is moving toward presenting herself as a “moderate” centrist candidate in 2024.

“I see more and more signs that Hillary’s going to run,” Morris, a former aide to Bill Clinton, said during a radio interview.

Morris said the fact that Hillary is acknowledging that most Americans “do not believe in open borders,” is a tell tale sign.

“These are all signals that she is going to be the moderate candidate for president. She’s going to say after the election, ‘See, the left cost us the House and the Senate. If we stay with a left-wing candidate in 2024, we’re going to lose the White House. I’m the only one who will tack to the center and give us a chance at victory​,​’​” Morris said.

The political consultant added that “it’s the strategy I designed for Bill Clinton in 1992” and that “​Hillary is just dusting off Bill‘s playbook that I wrote for him and applying it herself this year.”

Listen (relevant part starts at 46 mins):

Morris previously recently predicted that Democrats are going to reject Biden for a second run in favour of Clinton in order to avoid the potential of “some crazy radical like Gavin Newson, Bernie Sanders. Maybe even AOC herself” becoming a front runner.

“That’s going to drive the Democratic Party leaders to go to Hillary and say, ‘Hey look. Please run again. We need you to save us from the crazy left,’” ​Morris said, adding “Otherwise we’ll have Sanders as our candidate. We’ll lose Congress by a ton. And we’ll get wiped out in the presidential race.’”

During an MSNBC interview a fortnight ago, Hillary noted “nobody wants open borders who has any idea of how government and countries work.”​

Hillary recently declared that she would never run for President again, but that hasn’t stopped the rumours from circulating.

Meanwhile, despite continued questions over his mental degradation, Joe Biden has reportedly told Al Sharpton that he plans to run again for president in 2024.

In related news, an underreported piece by Breitbart last week detailed how Hillary aides reportedly seriously believed that Donald Trump, acting as a Russian agent, planned to poison Hillary with some sort of deadly handshake during the presidential debates in 2016.

The revelation is made in a forthcoming book by New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who details how “During preparations for the third debate, Clinton’s team was disrupted by a warning from the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein, who said he had been told that Russians might try to poison Clinton through a handshake with Trump, to inflict a dramatic health episode during the debate.”

While the book claims Hillary personally didn’t take the threat seriously, “Her communications director, Jennifer Palmieri, took the prospect seriously enough to check it out,” Haberman writes.

Interestingly, there was no handshake at the beginning of the third debate:

    Video: Lost Biden Speaks Total Gibberish, Asks For Help Completing Sentences

    How can this guy be in charge of anything?

    Here we go again.

    During an appearance in Puerto Rico Monday Joe Biden suddenly started acting as if he had lost something, before asking for help to deliver pre prepared remarks, and then devolving into speaking gibberish.

    Biden was walking to the podium when he suddenly stopped and looked at the ground as if he had lost something.

    He appeared to mutter “look for here somewhere” while scanning the ground, perhaps looking for a place he was ordered to stand by handlers:

    Biden then gibbered about being raised in a Puerto Rican community… in Delaware, or something, before struggling to read the teleprompter and asking for help to complete his sentences:

    Eventually, Biden just completely devolved into a complete nonsense mash:

    At least he wasn’t asking where dead people were this time.

    There are too many daily incidents like this to keep track of now:
