Kickin’ It with the Kids

We had Miss Isabel and Miss Olivia as overnight guests. Grandma took them to WalMart yesterday, then they helped her prepare supper. Today we’re taking them to Aldi’s to pick up the last of the fresh things we need for dinner Sunday. Miss Isabel wants to be a chef, so we watched Chopped Junior and Cooks Vs. Cons on Food Network last night. Today we’re going to watch Disney’s Christmas Carol and my favorite version of it, the 1951 version with Alistair Sim. They’ve been trying to sneak a peek under the tree, but every kid does that. These little ones are what make life worthwhile.

Egypt scuttles UN vote on Israeli settlement after Trump warning
OBAMA WAS GOING TO LET THE CONDEMNATION STAND… TRUMP DROPPED A DIME ON EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT SIS, WHO PULLED THE RESOLUTION. HE KNOWS THE DONALD DON’T PLAY.
Egyptian officials scrapped a plan to proceed with a United Nations Security Council vote condemning the construction of Israeli settlements, following pushback from Israeli officials and President-elect Trump.
Israeli settlement construction drew condemnation from the State Department earlier this year, in addition to the rebukes of more customary critics, raising fears in Israel and among congressional Republicans that President Obama might not veto a resolution on the matter in the waning days of his presidency.

McConnell: I Didn’t Think Trump Had a Chance at Winning
I’M STILL CONVINCED McDUMBELL VIEWS TRUMP AS AN OUTSIDER WHO IS TRESPASSING ON THE COALITION OF D.C. ELITES.
“Trump was able to convey — oddly enough, a message from a billionaire who lives in Manhattan — a genuine concern for people who feel kind of left out, are sort of offended by all the political correctness they see around them and didn’t feel like this is the America that they’re accustomed to.”

SHE SHOOTS… SHE SCORES

Everyone should be treated with respect — unless you’re a Republican
Thursday, Ivanka Trump and her family were accosted by Dan Goldstein, a lawyer from Brooklyn, who yelled at her that her father, who has yet to take office, was “ruining the country.” It wasn’t a spontaneous outburst. Goldstein’s husband had tweeted from the JetBlue terminal at JFK Airport that Goldstein was “chasing” Ivanka and her family to “harass” them.

Trump’s Israel Ambassador Will Drain the Two-State Solution Swamp
THERE IS NO SUCH PLACE AS PALESTINE. IT IS A MOB OF JORDANIAN SQUATTERS WHO SETTLED ON ISRAELI LAND.
But Trump has decided to go with David Friedman, a friend of Israel, instead of an enemy. And the enemies of the Jewish State are united in their fury against Ambassador David Friedman.
“J Street is vehemently opposed to the nomination of David Friedman to be Ambassador to Israel.” the Soros funded anti-Israel group declared. Friedman has been a longtime critic of the hate group, comparing its support for Islamic terror against Israel to its key funders Nazi collaborating past.

Democrats are intimidated by Trump’s Cabinet of successful superstars
DUMP A BUNCH OF CAREER POLITICIANS AND BRING IN PEOPLE WHO KNOW HOW TO MAKE THINGS RUN RIGHT
Democratic National Committee spokesman Eric Walker went so far as to say, “The corrupt nature of this arrangement cannot be understated. Voters who wanted Trump to drain the swamp just got another face full of mud.”
Really? How is Icahn generously volunteering his time and knowledge to help rein in President Obama’s excessive era of regulations proof of corruption? If you remember, Obama tapped a number of CEOs to join his President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, including Jeffrey R. Immelt, who served as council chair while he was also the chairman of General Electric.

    What a great thing to read about your time with your granddaughters! I remember so well the times I spent the weekend with mine, which was often because my parents were social butterflies! It was always the greatest, and I still try to cook some of my great-grandmother’s recipes, in her original mixing bowl, which is way over 100 years old. Your granddaughters will treasure these moments every bit as much as you and your dear bride do.
