There’s a bit of new polling out today and it’s not good news for the Michael Bloomberg campaign. After a disastrous debate, many on the left been holding their breath to see if Bloomberg can maintain his presence to truly challenge Bernie Sanders on Super Tuesday.

But if these latest numbers are right, that’s probably not going to happen.

On the surface, this seems like really good news for Elizabeth Warren. The problem? She’s actually helping Sanders by further damaging candidates who are competitive on Super Tuesday, which she does not appear to be. By overtaking Biden and Bloomberg, Warren hurts the two people most likely to put up a fight before it’s too late.

Bloomberg all the way down at 13% is devastating for his chances. If that’s anywhere close to accurate, he’s likely done. His only path is to win several states on Super Tuesday and keep close enough to Sanders to force a brokered convention. Sure, he could conceivably buy the convention once they get there, but even a plan like that has its limits. If he’s 500+ delegates behind Bernie, there’s just noway in my view that the Democrats go full smoky back room and betray their voters.

Meanwhile, Amy Klobuchar’s rise continues to be a myth. There was real chatter after her strong finish in New Hampshire that she could become a player, but I was always skeptical. She simply didn’t have the organization, nor the minority support to maintain momentum. At this point, she should just drop out. The same is largely true for Buttigieg, but that guy’s ego is way too big to see him leave the race before Super Tuesday.

What all this adds up to is more good news for Bernie. The anti-Bernie vote is hopelessly split, the one guy with unlimited funds is losing viability, and the rest of the field are too selfish to join forces before it’s too late.

But it’s totally off limits to joke that Democrats are sympathetic to the Iranian regime you guys. Don’t you dare post any memes with Pelosi or Schumer insinuating such.

With thousands risking their lives in Iran to push back on the oppressive Islamist government that rules over them, you’d think the one thing Republicans and Democrats could agree on is supporting them in our rhetoric. No one is even talking about going to war, arming them, or doing anything other that saying “this is right, and this is wrong.”

But nope, Democrats blocked a resolution today that would have shown U.S. support for the protestors.

Worse, Democrats blocked even allowing a vote on the measure because they are too cowardly to actually go on record on the issue.

And just in case someone might think McCarthy had put some partisan poison pills in the resolution that made it impossible for Democrats to support, that’s another nope.

Consideration and a vote on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s resolution was blocked because Democrats advanced the previous question, by a vote of 226-191. The resolution would have condemned the Government of Iran for killing 1,500 Iranian citizens who were protesting their government, as well as condemned the Government of Iran for shooting down Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, killing 176 people.

In addition, the resolution; “(3) condemns the Government of Iran for repeatedly lying to its people and to the world about its responsibility for the downing of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752; (4) calls on the Government of Iran to— (A) refrain from the use of violence; and (B) protect the rights of freedom of expression and peaceful assembly; and (5) supports the protestors in Iran, their demands for accountability, and their desire for the Government of Iran to respect freedom and human rights.”

There was simply no excuse for Democrats not to allow a vote on McCarthy’s resolution unless they simply felt it was too harsh, which would pointedly show them to be sympathizing with the Mullahs. Enough obfuscating about the realities. Pelosi was just calling Mitch McConnell a Russian agent yesterday, so she’s owed no deference for her own actions.

I’m sure Democrats will try to save face with a watered down resolution of their own, but this was just despicable on their part. People are dying as we speak. This isn’t a time to delay a vote in order to play politics, but that’s exactly what they’ve decided to do. It shows exactly where their priorities lie.

Ilhan Omar is not a nice person.

That’s become abundantly clear given the behavior that’s been revealed over the last several months. We’ve known about her history of corruption and back biting for some time, including strong evidence she married her brother to commit immigration fraud, but her current marriage was thrust into the spotlight most recently. We found out that she was cheating on Ahmed Hirsi with a campaign consultant who she just happened to be shoveling hundreds of thousands of dollars to in campaign funds as well. While an investigation would need to take place, it sure looks like she was funding his travel and business expenses in order to facilitate her affair.

But if that wasn’t bad enough, a new report is out providing evidence that she not only cheated on Hirsi, she then, in all her vindictiveness, got him fired from his job.

This via PJ Media.

During the summer, sources* within the Minneapolis Somali community informed me that Rep. Ilhan Omar has been using financial leverage to prevent Ahmed Hirsi from filing for divorce.

Ahmed Hirsi’s employment with Councilwoman Cano was quietly terminated months ago: June 14.

The June 14 termination of Ahmed Hirsi’s employment is public data. Anyone can verify this information by filing a request with the City of Minneapolis City Clerk.

My sources stated that Ahmed Hirsi was terminated following a request by Rep. Omar. They added that Omar’s motivation for the request was to force Hirsi to become reliant upon her assets and income.

For the majority of 2019, Ahmed Hirsi has reportedly borne the responsibility of raising the three children he has with Omar. (One source used the term “abandoned” to describe Ilhan’s recent share of the parenting.) Since June 14, Hirsi does not appear to have a reliable source of income.

Meanwhile, Rep. Omar currently draws a $174,000 Congressional salary, and reportedly received a $250,000 book advance in January.

First she cheats on Hirsi and lies about it. The media, being the hacks they are, dutifully accept her denials and ask no further questions. Then irrefutable evidence emerges in the form of a divorce complaint that she did in fact commit adultery. Given all that, you’d think perhaps she’d at least have some sympathy on her husband and not try to ruin his life. Nah, she dumps the kids in his lap and gets him fired from his job because that’s apparently the kind of person she is.

Omar seems like a joy, doesn’t she?

It absolutely amazes me that all of this, including the initial affair, aren’t front page on every newspaper in this country. Can you imagine if this were a Republican having an affair in office and behaved this way? Would CNN cover it? Would they have a dozen reporters digging into every detail? Of course they would. But because it is Omar, she can basically act like a mob boss and no one but right wing news outlets bat an eye. This is a woman who threatened Hirsi in order to stop him from filing for divorce. Just this week, she was caught deleting tweets that revealed her father’s real name, corroborating accounts she committed marriage fraud.

This is not someone that should be in Congress. The fact that Democrats continue to baby her and protect her says nothing good about them. If this is the future of the Democratic party, the Democratic party can’t be allowed to retake power.
