Cherry Picking in November

Still so much left to sift through. What a week it’s been. Here are some things that I thought you might enjoy.

Back to the future: Howard Dean to run for DNC chairman
howarddean
THE DEMOCRATS KEEP RECYCLING THEIR OLD LOSERS.
‘REJOICE FOR THE SCREAMER LIVETH’….(THAT’S CALLED A PLAY ON WORDS)
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who led the DNC from 2005 to 2009, said Thursday via Twitter that he wants the job back when current interim chief Donna Brazile leaves in spring.
“The dems need organization and focus on the young. Need a fifty State strategy and tech rehab. I am in for chairman again,” he tweeted.

‘Melania liked Mrs. O a lot’: First Lady’s tea with her successor is kept behind closed doors (despite warm public welcome Bushes gave the Obamas) and photo is only released after media pressure
Michelle Obama met her successor this afternoon, greeting Melania Trump at the White House when she arrived and hosting her for tea
Press were barred from covering the visit that coincided with their husbands’ 90-minute meeting in the Oval Office
The Trumps arrived at the White House via a private entrance on the south side of the building. They left the same way they came
A photo of the women chatting popped up online hours later, after the White House was pressured to release it
In 2008 President George W. Bush and his wife Laura eagerly greeted the Obamas on the South Lawn – and reporters were allowed to cover it
I’D BET MONEY THAT MELANIA WAS GRACIOUS AND FRIENDLY AND THE GHETTO TRASH WANTED TO CLAW HER EYES OUT
WHAT STRUCK ME WAS THAT ALL THESE DESIGNERS MADE CLOTHES FOR MOOCH IN SIZE XXXL;MELANIA COULD MAKE SACKCLOTH LOOK STUNNING

Chelsea Clinton being groomed to run for Congress
SHE’S EVERY BIT AS QUALIFIED AS HER MOTHER
GREEDY: CHECK
ARROGANT: CHECK
PATHETIC LIAR: CHECK
UGLY AS HELL: CHECK
LIVING OFF SLICK WILLY’S REPUTATION: CHECK
Chelsea could run for the seat in NYC’s 17th Congressional District once Lowey, a respected, 79-year-old career politician with nearly 30 years in office, decides to retire, we have exclusively learned.
Lowey’s district includes parts of Rockland and Westchester counties and, conveniently, Chappaqua, the Clinton family home base
SHE COMES FROM A LONG LINE OF CARPETBAGGERS

Experts Question If Clinton Foundation Will Survive

WHEN, OH WHEN WILL WE BE RID OF THIS NEST OF VERMIN?
The months ahead could determine what kind of future, if any, the Clinton Foundation can have as Congress and the new administration of President-elect Donald Trump take what is certain to be a tough look the ethical and legal issues that have swirled for years around the troubled charity

Memo to Trump: Exploit your win!
The protests, riots and violence that have attended his triumph in city after city should only serve to steel his resolve.
As for promptings that he “reach out” and “reassure” those upset by his victory, and trim or temper his agenda to pacify them, Trump should reject the poisoned chalice. This is the same old con.

A partial agenda: First, he should ignore any importunings by President Obama to permit passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in a lame-duck session – and let the trade deal sink by year’s end.

On Jan. 20, he should have vetted and ready to nominate to the high court a brilliant constitutionalist and strict constructionist.
With a new education secretary, he should announce White House intent to work for repeal of Common Core and announce the introduction of legislation to put federal resources behind the charter schools that have proven to be a godsend to inner-city black children.

Trump should announce a date soon for repeal and replacement of Obamacare and introduction of his new tax-and-trade legislation to bring back manufacturing and create American jobs.

Donald Trump said in his campaign that that this is America’s last chance. If we lose this one, he said, we lose the country.
The president-elect should ignore his more cautious counselors and act with the urgency of his declared beliefs.

IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING WHERE DIAMOND AND SILK WERE:
CAN YOU IMAGINE THESE TWO AS PRESS SECRETARY?

Trump Picks Top Climate Skeptic to Lead EPA Transition
Choosing Myron Ebell means Trump plans to drastically reshape climate policies
Ebell is a well-known and polarizing figure in the energy and environment realm. His participation in the EPA transition signals that the Trump team is looking to drastically reshape the climate policies the agency has pursued under the Obama administration. Ebell’s role is likely to infuriate environmentalists and Democrats but buoy critics of Obama’s climate rules.

Mitchell Shocked by Photo of Trump and Obama Together: ‘Good Lord’

“That is the moment, Donald Trump in the Oval Office with President Obama,” Mitchell said.

[CtH: Just a guess here that if this were 2008, she would have said, “President-Elect Obama in the Oval Office with George Bush.”]

She continued to report on the historic moment but let her emotions go and appeared shocked before ending her comments.

“But, good lord, that is an image a lot of people did not expect to see,” Mitchell said.

President-Elect Trump Saluted by Firefighters as He Leaves New York for Meeting with President Obama

President-Elect Donald Trump flew out of New York City’s LaGuardia Airport Thursday morning aboard his private jet Trump Force One. As the plane taxied for takeoff firefighters paid their respects to Trump with a traditional water cannon salute. Nearby, a group of firefighters and officials enthusiastically waved to Trump as the plane rolled by them.

FIRST RESPONDERS WILL BE TREATED A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY UNDER TRUMP
Trump calls slain cop’s widow to offer condolences

OF ALL THE POLICE OFFICERS SLAUGHTERED ON OBAMA’S WATCH HE SENT REPRESENTATIVES TO THE FUNERALS OF THE CRIMINALS BUT NEVER A COP… EVER.

President-elect Donald Trump called slain NYPD Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo’s widow Thursday morning and personally extended his “condolences” to her on the day that thousands of police officers paid tribute to the fallen Finest at his funeral.

“I’m very sorry I cannot be there with you today. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time,” Trump told the grieving woman, according to a source.

“I want to express my condolences from me and my family.”

Tuozzolo, a married father of two, was shot and killed last week by 35-year-old ex-con Manuel Rosales. Tuozzolo had been responding to a report of a break-in.

UAW seeks to join Trump in effort to dismantle NAFTA
For years, the UAW has railed against NAFTA and other free trade agreements while Republicans have generally supported free trade deals. This year, Trump turned Republican politics upside down.

IF HE SIGNS THE XL PIPELINE DEAL, WHICH I THINK HE WILL, HE’LL PUT MORE THAN 30,000 SKILLED UNION TRADES MEN BACK TO WORK.  HE CAN MAKE GREAT INROADS INTO THE MONOLITH THAT IS THE UNION VOTE.

Clinton Couldn’t Win Over White Women
But they split along educational lines.
Throughout these many months, the Clinton team made it clear that they believed her historic candidacy had the potential to sway portions of the electorate, most especially women voters. They were counting in no small part on the support of sisterhood.

But Clinton’s stunning loss Tuesday night showed that issues of culture and class mattered more to many American women than their gender.

Lou Dobbs: If I Were Trump My Hands Would Have Been Clutching at Paul Ryan’s Throat

Donald Trump flew to Washington DC on Thursday to meet with President Obama, Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

Paul Ryan was a very vocal critic of Donald Trump for the past year. Ryan even pulled his endorsement of Donald Trump a month before the election. If Ryan was not on Hillary’s payroll he should have been.

Tonight Lou Dobbs remarked on Trump’s meeting with anti-Trump Speaker Paul Ryan.

Lou Dobbs: I’ve got to tell you I’m such a base and petty man that if Paul Ryan had done to me what he did to Donald Trump my hands would, without any power to resist it all, would be clutching at his throat. And, I have to say, Donald Trump was very presidential. He actually may be seeking to attain the level of saint here in what he has tolerated.

Mayors of NY and Los Angeles pledge to remain immigrant sanctuaries
Officials in New York and Los Angeles on Thursday said they hoped President-elect Donald Trump would not follow through on a campaign promise to withhold federal funds from “sanctuary cities” that shield people who are in the country illegally.

HE’LL CUT YOUR FUNDING THEN YOU CAN PAY TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE MONGRELS YOURSELVES.

Mom Throws Child Out In Street For Voting For Trump In School Election

Trump’s Transition Team Considers Sarah Palin For Possible Cabinet Spot
WHAT STANDS OUT IS THAT REPUBLICANS HAVE A FAR DEEPER POOL OF TALENT TO PICK FROM BECAUSE MORE OF THEM HAVE REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE ACTUALLY WORKING JOBS BESIDES GETTING ELECTED AND RE-ELECTED.

The Trump campaign is floating the idea of tapping the former Alaskan governor as Trump’s interior secretary. Palin has made no secret about her interest in holding a position in a Trump administration.

“If I were head of that, I’d get rid of it,” Palin said in an interview in September, referring to the Department of Energy. She said abolishing the department would give states greater control of energy policy within their borders.

[CtH: I’d love to see her heading up Energy.  She did wonderful things for the industry in Alaska and really knows her business.]

Canadian Militia Vows To Protect Borders From Illegal Americans

“This ain’t no Mexico border. Illegals will face snow and deadly cold temperatures, notwithstanding dangerous predator attacks from bears, cougars and wolves. If you’re an American crossing the border illegally, your chances of survival are pretty slim ”  – John C. McCaullagh, Militia leader

“Killing illegal citizens is a crime in Canada and we don’t openly encourage violence within our organization, but we can’t prevent members from shooting a few rounds at them just to scare them away. If you accidentally get hit in the knee or in the leg, without medical assistance, you’re a dead man within 2 or 3 days” he warns. “Better alive in the US than dead in Canada. It just ain’t worth the gamble,” he adds.

Top Clinton Adviser: She Didn’t ‘Contemplate Losing’ the White House
A top campaign adviser to Hillary Clinton said the former Democratic nominee “really didn’t contemplate losing” the presidential election to her opponent Donald Trump.  The unnamed adviser told People magazine on Wednesday that campaign staff were unsure of what Clinton would do next.

NY Times Crank: “America Elected a Bigot” – “I Do Not Respect the President-Elect”

New York Times columnist Charles Blow went off on a racist tirade against Donald Trump — who was never accused of being racist until he ran for president as a Republican.

Trump is already working to erase Obama’s legacy from history
HOW MUCH HE CAN OR WILL ACCOMPLISH REMAINS TO BE SEEN

President-elect Donald Trump was surprisingly gracious as he met President Barack Obama in the Oval Office on Thursday but make no mistake: He is already working to erase major parts of Obama’s legacy from the history books.

Trump will be able to change some of Obama’s policies with a quick stroke of the pen. Others will be much more difficult, requiring justification to pass legal hurdles or buy-in from lawmakers on Capitol Hill or foreign leaders.

[CtH: I’m very encouraged by Trump’s behavior here. It points to what I’ve been hoping — i.e., that he is capable of growing into the job, something Obama The Petty never did.]

Life For Our Veterans (And Our Military) Could Be Much Different Soon
I POSTED THIS THIS MORNING. SOMEBODY MUST BE READING OUR LITTLE BLOG.

On both fronts, thankfully, I believe a new era dawns. On the campaign trail, candidate Donald Trump made both rebuilding our military and fixing the VA two of his signature issues.

President-elect Trump is poised to do the same. President-elect Trump has pledged to get rid of the disastrous defense sequester, invest in long-overdue future military technologies, grow the ranks and numbers of ships and aircraft, and repeal stifling rules of engagement that handcuff our troops.

In just a few years, the posture of our military could look much different—ensuring America both deters aggression and can swiftly defeat enemies.

[CtH: I hope this signals better working conditions for my kids.]

Franken: Americans Should Blame Republicans for Rising Obamacare Premiums

ALAS, THERE’S ALWAYS A SKUNK TO STINK THINGS UP

“The people they should be mad at, really, are Republican officeholders who refused to do anything other than vote to repeal the [Affordable Care Act],” he said. On September 30, Minnesota Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman announced that health insurance rates will increase from 50 percent to 67 percent in 2017.

[CtH: Typical Democrat who can’t admit he was wrong, ever.  They assured us that THEIR “AFFORDABLE Care Act” was going to lower premiums.]

Concerns grow of press kept at bay during Donald Trump presidency
9_142016_160318-pol-trump-me8201_s878x627
I WOULDN’T BLAME HIM A BIT. AND I’D NEVER DO TAPED INTERVIEWS, GIVEN THE MEDIA’S PENCHANT FOR ‘CREATIVE EDITING.’

[CtH: Second that!]

President-elect Donald Trump never hid his contempt for the news media during the campaign and has continued to keep the press at bay after winning the election, raising concerns he will end the tradition of allowing a pool of reporters to cover his every move in public.

Mr. Trump, who at campaign rallies regularly denounced the news media as “the most dishonest people you’ll ever meet,” has support for breaking the tradition and keeping the public in the dark about his daily whereabouts.

“I don’t think Trump needs the press pool,” said Rep. Duncan Hunter, a California Republican who is a top Trump ally on Capitol Hill. “He didn’t need it when he ran and he doesn’t need it as president of the United States.”

“If I had just won the election after everyone said I’d lose and rooted for my opponent, why would I give anyone the time of day,” said Mr. Hunter.

GOP To Use Previously Unheard Of Tactic To Slam Dunk Trump Agenda
WE’VE BEEN WAITING DECADES FOR THE REPUBLICANS TO GROW A PAIR AND START DISHING OUT SOME OF WHAT THEY’VE HAD TO TAKE FROM SCARY HARRY AND HIS MERRY BAND OF CUTTHROATS.

The key is “reconciliation,” the part of the congressional budget process that allows highly controversial policies to be considered in the Senate without any possibility of them being filibustered.

But reconciliation by itself isn’t the unprecedented procedure; it’s the novel way the leadership plans to use reconciliation: For the first time in the 4-plus decades’ history of the congressional budget process, reconciliation may occur twice in the same year.

HIS MOM MUST BE SO PROUD [CtH: You assume she knows how to spell it! LOL]

Harry Reid Dismisses Donald Trump: ‘A Sexual Predator Who Lost the Popular Vote’

I’M GOING TO MISS THIS SORRY ASS LIKE AN IMPACTED WISDOM TOOTH

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid broke his silence Friday on Donald Trump’s victory, denouncing Trump as a “sexual predator” who “lost the popular vote” and “emboldened the forces of hate and bigotry in America”—and who is now solely responsible for healing the country’s gaping political wounds.

In a fiery statement released three days after the election, Reid, who is retiring, holds Trump accountable for his comments on the campaign trail that inspired “fear” in women, Hispanics and African-Americans in the U.S.

[CtH: Well, I guess he’d know all about sexual predators in the Oval Office, now wouldn’t he?]

TIME FOR ANOTHER NAP.

Violence Is Their Only Response

Today may set a record for the number of posts. The list of links I have bookmarked is longer than a reading of the charges on Hillary’s upcoming federal indictment. That oughta piss ’em off. Well-planned and well-financed (are you there, George?) riots are breaking out nationwide. They think if they raise enough hell we’ll let them have their way. The violence had even spread to grade schoolers. In all those cases so far, it’s thugs-in-training beating on white kids. They’re taught their bloody skills early. All that’s listed here is going to be examples of the way socialists handle defeat. (Hint: not very well at all.)

12 arrests during Trump protest in Richmond; statues damaged
I SAW THIS AND MY FIRST THOUGHT WAS OF OUR BELOVED TING AND PRAYING FOR HER SAFETY

RICHMOND, Va. — Hundreds of people marched through Richmond to protest the election of Donald Trump, and three Confederate statues were vandalized, authorities said Thursday. A dozen people were arrested.
Graffiti on the side of a statue of Confederate President Jefferson Davis said, “Your vote was a hate crime.” Also tagged were statues of Confederate General Robert E. Lee and naval officer and oceanographer Matthew Fontaine Maury.
The headquarters of the Republican Party of Virginia was also vandalized during the protest, chairman John Whitbeck said in a statement. TV station WWBT reported the doorbell was broken and graffiti was painted on the building.

Anti-Trump protesters accidentally march into Marine Corps pub crawl and things escalated quickly

TALK ABOUT WRONG PLACE, WRONG TIME… FLAG-BURNING, MAGGOT-INFESTED JUVENILE ANARCHIST WANNABES RUN INTO A BUNCH OF MARINES AT A PUB CRAWL. THEY SHOULD THANK THE LOCAL POLICE FOR NOT GETTING THEIR CLOCKS CLEANED. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN UGLY.
Anti-Trump protesters chanted “dump Trump” as people in the bar cheered “U.S.A” over and over. After some tense minutes the protesters kept on with their march the Trump supporters yelled “you walked into the wrong bar!”

Student says he was attacked for supporting Trump in mock election

ANOTHER ATTACK
Teen attacked at school for support of Donald Trump

Thugs savagely assault man for ‘voting for Trump’
A group of African-American men were filmed dragging an older white man through the street and savagely attacking him because he “voted for Donald Trump”.
It is believed the violent attack took place in Chicago, local media reported.
Others run into the shot and steal his belongings as the men tell the victim he is “gonna pay for that s–t”.
A woman in the background shouts “beat his a–” as another bystander laughed and said: “don’t vote Trump.”
WHAT GOOD IS SHOWING YOUR DISAPPROVAL BY BEATING AN OLD WHITE MAN IF YOU DON’T ROB HIM TOO?

Law and Order, Bitches! Austin Cops Tackle, Cuff, Arrest Violent Anti-Trump Goons
Trump is elected President.
Law and order breaks out across America!
Austin police tackled, cuffed and arrested violent anti-Trump goons during tonight’s riots.
They know Donald Trump has their back.

Figures. Anti-Trump Protesters Were Bussed in to Austin #FakeProtests
Paid fake protesters were bussed in to the anti-Trump protests in Austin, Texas.
They must have spent a lot of Soros money on this operation.
It figures. Everything they do is fake or paid for.

U. of Michigan Gives Students Play-Doh, Coloring Books to Cope With Trump
“The ones I find most upsetting are those who fear, rightly or wrongly, for their own families. These students are requesting that the exam be postponed. On the other hand, I am sure that many students have sacrificed to prepare for the test …Therefore, I am making the exam optional.”
At Tufts University, arts and crafts were on offer. And the University of Kansas reminded students via social media of the therapy dogs available for comfort every other Wednesday.

THINK I’M DONE? NOT EVEN CLOSE. JUST HAVE TO TAKE MY MORNING NAP. I SHALL RETURN.

Honoring Our Veterans

This is the solemn remembrance of all who serve or have served in defense of this country. It was first called Armistice Day and was designated so because the First World War ended on 11/11/18. The Armistice was signed at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. No, I didn’t Google it, I already knew it. I am among the fortunate who were educated back when teachers taught and classrooms weren’t incubators for mind-numbed robots.

This is the day we honor our warriors, like Grunt’s son and Chrissy’s warrior princesses. I would like to recognize anyone who lurks here that has family serving. You have our undying gratitude for your strength, your courage, and your devotion to your country. I have always maintained that the left hates the military because they cannot comprehend a sense of duty and loyalty to something so precious people are willing to risk life and limb to preserve it. It’s called “guts.” They don’t understand it and never will.

Happy Birthday To The United States Marine Corps… 241 Years Of Proud Service
This is a tribute to the original gang of badasses

A message from the Commandant of the Marine Corps: Each year on or around 10 November, Marines gather in groups large and small to celebrate our history, honor the memory of those who have gone before us, and rekindle the bond that unites all generations of Marines. Marines, we are part of something bigger than any of us could imagine. Whether you fought in the battles of World War I, in the Pacific during World War II, in Korea or Vietnam, in Desert Shield or Desert Storm, or in the streets of Iraq and Afghanistan—or you are just starting out on your Marine Corps journey—we are all part of an elite family of warriors. For the rest of your life, the first term people use to describe you will be “Marine.”

This Veterans Day, start fixing the Veterans Administration
Just in time for Veterans Day, when we honor those who served their country in uniform, the inspector general of the Department of Veterans Affairs has unearthed another scandal.

This time, it’s that scheduling staff at a clinic in southern Arizona systematically zeroed out patient wait times for thousands of appointments to make it look like goals were being met.
Veterans Day would be a hollow and meaningless celebration if America didn’t value its veterans enough to keep its promises to them, no matter how many politicians or bureaucrats have to be thrown out to make this happen.

As I was typing this it occurred to me. This is the 241st birthday of the Marines. What better gift could we have given them than a commander-in-chief they can be proud of? Someone who appreciates their sacrifice and would not betray them the way the last one did. It is hard to imagine what it was like to obey the commands of someone who has little but contempt for you and what you do. May Almighty God keep you in His arms.
