The Democrats are embarrassing themselves.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) gave a bizarre and unhinged conspiratorial rant during the Senate confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett on Tuesday.

Some of his rant can be seen here:

Whitehouse attempted to connect Barrett to sources of “dark money,” which is a popularized term referring to donor money hidden from public scrutiny. This talking point has been used by Democrats for years, but has largely fallen out of favor now that former vice president Joe Biden is soaking up the majority of donations from the plutocracy.

Democrats have tried to anoint Whitehouse for his empty blather, but Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) immediately lit him up due to his immense hypocrisy.

“First of all, our Democratic colleagues, when they address the issue of so-called dark money in campaign finance contributions, are often deeply, deeply hypocritical, and don’t address the actual facts that exist,” Cruz said in his remarks.

Cruz brought up the fact that 14 of the top 20 super PACs dishing out dark money “gave virtually all their money to Democrats.” He also mentioned that the financial contributions of the Wall Street and Fortune 500 elite “overwhelmingly favor Joe Biden and the Democrats.”

“All of the great umbrage about the corporate interest are spending dark money is widely in conflict with the actual facts of the corporate interests that are spending dark money are funding the Democrats by a factor of 3-1 or greater,” Cruz added.

Cruz’s full takedown of Whitehouse can be seen here:

Cruz also received some flak from Democrats for attempting to humanize Barrett while questioning her at the hearings.

Big League Politics has reported on how progressive oligarch George Soros is investing at least $50 million to tip the scales for the Democrats in this year’s election:

The Free Beacon reported that George Soros has pitched in $50 million to Democrats’ PACs and campaigns in the 2020 election cycle.

These contributions represent a record amount of financial support for the billionaire oligarch.

In the 2020 cycle, Soros stepped up his political spending through the Democracy PAC, which he established in 2019 to dump large sums of money into other leftist organizations.

According to new filings to the Federal Election Commission, the PAC donated nearly $17 million last quarter, which brought its total spending for this cycle to $48 million. Soros donated $4 million directly to Democrat campaigns and committees without first funneling the money into his PAC.

The $52 million cash injection is over twice the amount that Soros donated in the 2016 presidential election cycle — $22 million.

Ironically enough, Democrat candidates who have benefited from Soros’ generous candidates have lamented about the influence of money in politics.

Cruz has once again shown himself to be a master at exposing Democrat hypocrisy.

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

Published

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
