In The Rear View Mirror – May 6, 2018
Looking back at this morning and yesterday, we have Sarah Sanders in a blistering rebuke calling out the hypocrisy of the left concerning the Haspel CIA nomination, liberals losing their sanity over Trumps nomination sent to the Nobel Prize Committee, and Tom Brokaw, the leader against Trump now finds himself in the fire.
Sanders exposes the Hypocrisy of the Left with CIA Haspel Nomination
Gina Haspel, a woman who has been part of the CIA is now facing confirmation resistance from the left, not because of qualifications, but more due to who nominated her, this is not sitting very well with Sarah Sanders who responded with a tweet:
There is no one more qualified to be the first woman to lead the CIA than 30+ year CIA veteran Gina Haspel. Any Democrat who claims to support women’s empowerment and our national security but opposes her nomination is a total hypocrite
— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) May 5, 2018
She called out the hypocrisy of the left in rejecting her, then claiming they support women’s empowerment, with 30+ years experience, you would think they would welcome the first Haspel as the first CIA Woman director, but due to their opposition of Trump, any of the standards they used to support seems to have gone out the door.
Much of this is coming from videotapes of waterboarding terrorist, sorry folks, have no personal problem with it, if it can be shown that it makes them talk, one has to wonder, who are the Democrats interested in protecting, the terrorist or American Citizens?
Past leaders have stepped out and supported Haspel’s nomination, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice came out on FOX and Friends and said she was very well qualified for the post. In addition to Trump the GOP in both houses do, but the left is trying to stop this nomination at all cost, anything to put a halt to a string of Trump victories.
I guess tweets like this show how little these Democrats care about all Americans in their attacks against Haspel, should not be surprised when they are willing to shut down the government over illegals:

If the crying left expects sympathy over waterboarding terrorist, maybe they should move to Iran or live among ISIS, see how much they thought they give to this type of thing, considering they are tying people to boards now, throwing them off of buildings head first, but not before putting bombs with a contact fuse on the head of the person.
Liberals Go Crazy Over Trump’s Nomination For Nobel Peace Prize
In another not so surprising move, the liberals upon hearing of 18 Republican members of Congress nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to “end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean peninsula, and bring peace to the region.” This cause the left to go into fits of outrage, the same group that sang praises when Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for basically doing nothing.
We have heard rare praise from the left concerning this, well until they realized that Trump was the one that did it, then they did what they always do, go crazy, you now have papers with headlines like: “Republican stooges push for Trump to win Nobel Prize as critics bash the idea,” from the New York Daily News (and this is cleaned up, don’t need to use foul language like these liberal loons do to get a point across), from CNN we got the usual, “Trump’s Possible Nobel Prize Nomination Mocked.”
The comedians who think they are funny, the late night hosts that very few think are funny any longer went on their raves, but this is nothing new, they seem to have little common sense, just attacks when they hear the name “Trump”.
Tom Brokaw, One Of the Leaders Against Trump Is Now Under Fire Himself
In a typical story of he who lives in glass houses should not throw rocks at other’s windows, we see Tom Brokaw and his supporters running for cover. Tom Brokaw who has led the charge against Trump, attacking him over everything from his stance to sexual conduct is now under attack himself.
Sexual misconduct allegations escalated against former NBC anchor and current Special Correspondent Tom Brokaw. First, he denied the allegations in a letter that “couldn’t be stronger,” according to The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple.
But Wemple followed by detailing the disturbing charges. He noted: “The 20-plus-year anchor of ‘NBC Nightly News’ isn’t on trial here.” Then he added, “NBC News, however, enjoys no such casual luxury.” I beg to differ when you attack others for exactly what you have done, you may find turn around will put you under the same scrutiny.
One can also ask, where is MSNBC in all this, seems they are mysteriously silent, all while still going on the attack with the story about Stormy Daniels, seems rather hypocritical to me. What is more, NBC has put pressure on their own women to sign letters supporting Tom Brokaw, seems the level of double standards knows no bounds with them.
Seems when dealing with Brokaw or others, the left has a very glaring problem of double standards.
