The California Democratic Congressional Delegation is as petty and crazy as any clown car. Even though California’s Citizens Redistricting Commission forced the most liberal of representatives to moderate their values, or to at least respect Republican and Decline-to-State voters, too.
No more Peter Stark! No more corrupt Laura Richardson! For the first time in his entire Congressional career, Henry Waxman had to campaign for his seat!
Even though Republicans lost seats over the next two election cycles, a growing number of contested seats have opened in California. Liberals have to spend more time and resources holding onto the seats they have.
While the liberal lunacy of the California Democratic Party reigns supreme, at least more Democratic Congressmen are running away from Washington, recognizing that they won’t have the majority any time soon.
Still, their House Minority leader is Nancy Pelosi, with her 100% rating from the ACLU, the same House Rep who could not explain the gender pay gap in her own Congressional office over thirty years ago. She once compared Tea Party patriots to neo-nazis. She even claimed that the Democratic House majority had to pass the Affordable Care Act in order for us to see what was in it.
Sadly, she is the perfect representative for the nonsensical illiberalism that has taken hold of the Democratic Party.
Of course, she does not stand alone in her incompetence and progressive insolence.
Rep Mike Honda of Fremont falls asleep during floor votes. He is facing a challenge, though … from the left for a second time. This cycle may be his last in office. Loony Loretta Sanchez of Orange County will probably be the only candidate between Kamala Harris and the open U.S. Senate seat. Sanchez loves to war-whoop like an Indian. Listening to her debate is jarring and entertaining. Really, it would be funny if she did not hold an office of trust and honor in Washington DC.
My Congressman, Ted Lieu, wants open borders, gun control, deals with Iran, federal takeovers of public private, no-cost bail (which will only drive up crime), along with abortion on demand, homosexual marriage, etc. He also considers the mental disorder of transgenderism “something beautiful.” The other Torrance House Rep is Maxine “Tea Party can go straight to hell!” Waters.
Need I say more?
But let’s go back to slamming the Northern California delegation, shall we?
Another Bay Area liberal Congresswoman, Zoe Lofgren of San Jose, added to the distinct insanity of her party. Like most Congressional liberals, she remains relatively innocuous for her illiberal nonsense.
Last week, however, she could not restrain herself. During a hearing to discuss President Barack Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate, she left fly her insipid stupidity during a committee hearing last week, in which an established law professor challenged President Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate:
“I don’t usually call out witnesses, but here’s what the witnesses’ testimony says:
‘We are teaching young people a terrible lesson. If I believe I am a Russian princess, it does not make me a Russian princess, even if my friends and acquaintances are will to indulge in my fantasy. Nor am I a great-horned owl just because I have been told I share some personality traits with those feathered creatures.’
“I’ve got to say I found this very offensive. And it says to me that the witness really doesn’t know anything, and probably hasn’t met a transgendered child who is going through in almost every case a very difficult experience finding themselves.
“And I believe that the department’s guidance will help schools all over the United States in preventing the kind of violence and harassment that these transgender kids find too often. I think it was very regrettable that that comment was put into the record, and I think it’s highly offensive”
How about the bullying of the federal government against states and local government?
Dr. Heriot wanted to respond to these allegations, but Lofgren cut her off and then launched into her:
“I think you’re a bigot, lady! I think you’re an ignorant bigot. I think you’re an ignorant bigot and anti- …
Chairman Steve King (R-IA) called Lofgren out of order for her remarks afterwards.
Frankly, she is out of order for claiming that gender dysphoria is not a disorder.
She is celebrating mental illness and gender confusion, and wants the federal government to enforce this moral insanity with taxpayer dollars.
The truth is that Rep. Lofgren (like her insane liberal peers) is an ignorant bigot. She is a truth-o-phobe who resists the biological facts about male and female. Such distinctions are not open for debate apart from facts.
Why lose one’s cool over sound science and psychological research that forbids allowing boys to think that they are girls, and vice versa?
I think I know why Rep Zoe Lofgren (D-San Jose) lost her temper at the House Committee hearing last week. Yes, there were expect witnesses who challenged President Obama’s insane, immoral, and irrelevant transgender bathroom mandate. Indeed, a rising coalition of common sense citizens (yes, there is still common sense in the world) are not supporting this political fraud.
But again–why did Lofgren expose her nuttiness and attack Gail Heriot? Why is Lofgren so obsessed with this transgender activism?
I think it’s because … she is a man herself.
I mean, look at her. Is there anything about her which would suggest that she is feminine? She has no regard for the distinctions between male and female, probably because she has joined in with the immoral insanity herself.
She was really born a he. I know it. Seriously, look at that face! She must have been born a he!
She looks so much like this guy:
Let’s face it:
Zoe Lofgren is really a man, and maybe even the long-lost twin brother of the sleazy Hustler Magazine CEO.
No wonder she got angry!
Please, folks, don’t laugh, and do not dismiss my observation! With the fruits and nuts representing the state of California in Congress, anything is possible!
