The Thursday Mashup

Weather report for the rest of the week:

Couldn’t think of anything profound to say. You get what you pay for.

‘I think St Nick gave up smoking’: Michelle Obama and Ryan Seacrest improvise a politically correct version of Twas the Night Before Christmas for sickly children
The pair were at Children’s National Health System hospital in Washington DC
They read out the classic 1823 poem to kids, but with some modern ‘updates’
Mrs Obama said that Santa gave up pipe-smoking ‘a long time back’
Seacrest said the description of ‘chubby and plump’ Santa was ‘a compliment’
The pair then answered questions and appeared on hospital radio
The First Ladies have visited the hospital each year since the 1940s

Although the Obama administration is unlikely to follow through on the recommendation, the referral will provide the Trump administration with a foundation to levy criminal charges against Planned Parenthood.
The referral follows an undercover video investigation into Planned Parenthood and its business partners published last year by the Center for Medical Progress. Those videos featured top Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of human remains from abortions. Planned Parenthood said any fees associated with the trade covered only reimbursement costs.

City offering workers therapy to cope with Trump-induced stress
Since the election, Mayor de Blasio has been reassuring New Yorkers that his administration will work to protect them from potentially harmful polices that have been proposed by Trump over the past year — particularly on immigration

Save The Snowflakes!

“This month it’s Christmas. Then Easter, Halloween, the Emmys — the list is endless. We will not sit idly by as students suffer in silence. We stand in solidarity with their tortured souls because no one deserves to suffer through unspeakable tragedy without pony rides and bubbles.” — Media Research Center President Brent Bozell

DC Area Marching Bands Are Boycotting Trump Inaugural Parade
Local DC high school marching bands are reportedly boycotting the Trump Inaugural Parade.
Their teachers don’t like Trump – so they’re denying their students the honor of marching in the Inaugural parade.
CONSIDERING THE GRADUATION RATE IN D.C. IS 25%,MOST OF THESE KIDS ARE 14 OR 15.SOME MAY NOT EVEN BE PARENTS OR HAVE A FELONY RECORD YET.I DON’T SEE THE BIG LOSS

DC Public Schools Spokeswoman Wants To ‘Get Rid Of’ All White Men
The declaration by Hilary Tone, who works a day job as communications director for D.C. Public Schools, was prompted by president-elect Donald Trump’s selection of Rick Perry to lead the Department of Energy. Pointing towards Perry’s stated desire to abolish the department he’s been tapped to lead, Tone quipped that she would personally like to lead (and presumably also eliminate) the “Department of White Men.”

America is held hostage by flyover states
THIS GUY IS REALLY NASTY….TOO BAD. SUCKS TO BE THEM.
“Government has not done enough to help them in many cases but their local and state governments are almost completely Republican and so too are their Representatives and Senators. Instead of holding them accountable, they vote them in over and over and over again.”
Now they’ve elected Donald Trump, the ultimate coastal elite. Trump pandered to their bigotry, and anger at Washington, D.C.

Why Did Polls Get It Wrong? Most Suffer From Democratic Bias

In 13 of IBD/TIPP’s 21 days of tracking, the race was either tied or separated by a mere point.
IBD/TIPP’s assessment of the presidential race during its closing weeks stood in sharp contrast with the narrative championed by nearly every other major poll.

Harry Reid Caught In $2 MILLION Bribery Scheme, Trump Prepares to Investigate
PLEASE, LORD, LET IT BE SO.
The $2 million cashier’s check was drawn at a St. George bank Nov. 5, 2010.
From there, it was sent by FedEx to a Los Angeles attorney who represented Ireland-based Full Tilt Poker.
Made out to “Mail Media LTD” — a Full Tilt-owned entity used to launder online-gambling funds — the millions then were deposited at Basler Kantonalbank in Switzerland, where Mail Media had an account.
And from there, Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings is investigating whether it went into a Marshall Islands account in the name of Searchlight Holding Inc. to benefit, or even bribe, Harry Reid, the once-powerful majority leader of the U.S. Senate whom online poker companies had been courting to push a bill to legalize their gaming across the nation.

After $85 million in family travel, Obama looks forward to ‘decent vacation’
While moving out of the White House, President Obama will also be packing his suitcase for a holiday. The outgoing executive told Comedy Central’s Trevor Noah that after eight difficult years he’s looking forward to “a decent vacation.”
No doubt Obama deserves one — of course, on his own dime this time. While in office, he’s explored the Roman Coliseum, walked the Great Wall of China and snorkeled in Maui. Now during retirement, picking a decent destination will be truly difficult.
