The Self-Beclowning Continues

It is an unfortunate state of affairs that the alt-left is so consumed with obstructing progress that they fail to see that, for all but those who suffer similar dementia, they look like a bunch of braying jackasses raising a racket and crapping on the floor of the building where they have to ‘work’, or some similar facsimile.

They are, at the time of this posting, in the middle of a 24 hour conniption fit, trying to convince one more RINO to join them in doing the teachers union’s bidding. They already have Murkowski from Alaska and the Maine Pain Susan Collins. That makes the vote 50-50, with Vice President Pence tasked with casting the tie-breaking vote on a cabinet nominee for the first time in history. The end game is to delay seating the president’s cabinet as long as possible, just for pure meanness.

[CtH: I just heard from Dearest that DeVos has been confirmed.]

Trump’s travel ban to be argued Tuesday in S.F. federal court

Robart said the states had shown that the travel ban was causing financial hardship to their residents and to institutions such as state universities, and were likely to prove that Trump’s order discriminated against Muslims.

While Trump responded with tweets about the “so-called judge” and his “ridiculous” ruling, Justice Department lawyers argued that Robart had harmed the nation with “judicial second-guessing of the president’s national security determination.”

Democrats are speaking for 24 hours in last push against Betsy DeVos

Activists have targeted those Republicans who they believe have reservations about DeVos, particularly those from rural states, where alternatives to public schools — such as those promoted by DeVos — are few and far between. But other than Murkowski and Collins, no Republican has indicated that their support is shaky.

What’s really behind Democrats’ all-night anti-DeVos show

Again, the only real issue here is her ardent support for school choice, including public charter schools and voucher programs to help families choose qualified private or parochial schools for their kids. The unions (rightly) see choice as a potentially fatal threat to their vast power.

The all-nighter is also a bit of virtue-signaling to the Dems’ angry base that they’re really, really trying to Stop Trump At All Costs. (Maybe this will end the noisy rallies outside Chuck Schumer’s house?)

Virtually all Senate Democrats poised to vote against remaining Cabinet picks

The Senate is scheduled to continue confirming Trump’s Cabinet nominees this week, with a vote scheduled for Tuesday to approve Betsy DeVos, nominated to run the Education Department. Senators are poised to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to serve as the next attorney general by the end of the week.

But those votes are expected to happen with little or no Democratic support.  Only Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) has announced plans to support Sessions. As of Monday, no Democrat has announced support for DeVos, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), nominated to lead Health and Human Services, or Steven T. Mnuchin, nominated as treasury secretary. They all are scheduled for up-or-down votes in the coming days.

[CtH: Soooooooo … when the economy improves and schools improve, Republicans will own it, right?  Hee hee!]

California Senate Leader Admits His Family Is In US ILLEGALLY With FAKE SOCIAL SECURITY CARDS

HIS BROTHER OWNS JOSE’S TACO STAND AND HIS BROTHER OWNS CHICO’S NAIL SALON AND QUICK LUBE

“I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under executive order, because if they got a false Social Security card, if they got a false identification, if they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB60, if they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members, you know, who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification. That’s what you need to survive, to work. They are eligible for massive deportation.”

    ‘She’s Supporting Fascism!’ Fury at Lady Gaga For Not Taking on Trump At Super Bowl

    HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A LIBERAL WHEN THEY’RE DENIED THE BLOOD OF INNOCENTS
    Anti-Trump supporters were furious on social media with Lady Gaga for not being more overly political in her Super Bowl halftime set and not waging war with the President instead of belting out “Poker Face” and “Born This Way.”

    The fact that the New York singer– real name Stefani Germanotta — who was an outspoken Hilary Clinton supporter during the recent election — didn’t rage against the President had social justice warriors … raging.

    In Their Own Words: Anti-Trump ‘Resistance’ Leaders Say They Want To Make America ‘Ungovernable’

    These protesters say they will do whatever it takes to keep Trump from enacting his agenda, and many of them have shown a willingness to destroy public property, assault law enforcement officers and inflict violence upon their fellow citizens.

    D.C.’s inauguration weekend violence was believed to be mostly the work of a group calling themselves DisruptJ20, which began planning to disrupt the inauguration and destroy property weeks in advance.

    2 Minutes of Mainstream Media Backtracking Really Put ‘Fake News’ Into Perspective

    Since Trump’s election, numerous mainstream outlets have propagated rumors or falsehoods before being forced to peddle them back. The Federalist listed several such stories in an article on Monday, including the report that election results were “hacked” in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan; an erroneous report that the bust of Martin Luther King, Jr., had been removed from the Oval Office upon Trump becoming president; and a debunked story that Trump’s treasury secretary pick foreclosed on an elderly woman for coming up 27 cents short on a bill.

    84 Lumber and the big-budget Super Bowl ad to nowhere

    THE COMPANY SAID THE REACTION WAS RUNNING 50-50.
    IT JUST DOESN’T MAKE SENSE.YOU ALIENATE HALF THE COUNTRY….THE HALF WHO OWN THEIR OWN HOMES AND ACTUALLY WORK TO IMPROVE THEM,RATHER THAN RECLINE IN SUBSIDIZED HOUSING.
    The website version included a five-minute “director’s cut” version that concludes with the pair entering the United States through a door in a towering border wall, a direct take on one of the most combustible topics in the country today.
    Adamson called 84 Lumber’s commercial “a miss,” because like several other advertisers, it was trying to attach itself to a social issue instead of pushing its product. He calls the tactic “borrowed interest,” and said it usually backfires.

    Media Critic To CNN’s Stelter: You’re Borderline ‘Ridiculous Figure,’ Media Are At War to Take Trump ‘Down’

    On the Feb. 5 edition of CNN’s Reliable Sources, host Brian Stelter asked Michael Wolff, “You seem to think the media is also at war with Trump — is that fair?” Wolff said, “absolutely,” and “I don’t think there would be anybody who would credibly disagree with this.”

    Stelter tried to disagree, saying “many journalists” are only trying to counter “lying and falsehoods.” Wolff said this is “prepsterous” because “you can follow them on Twitter where they are having a very personal war with Donald Trump.”

    Report: CNN wouldn’t have Kellyanne Conway on this weekend due to “serious questions about her credibility”

    TRUTH BE TOLD SHE SCARES THEM SHITLESS
    Some, like the New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen, were calling upon the television networks to stop booking her. And CNN declined to have her as a guest on Sunday — in part because the Trump administration offered her in lieu of Vice President Mike Pence, but also because of what the network told me were “serious questions about her credibility.”

    Irwin Corey, comic who styled himself the World’s Foremost Authority, dies at 102

    PEOPLE TODAY WOULDN’T UNDERSTAND/APPRECIATE HIS HUMOR.
    IT WASN’T IN-YOUR-FACE,LOADED WITH PROFANITY OR PERSONAL ATTACKS.
    Under the moniker Professor Corey, the self-described rebel comedian spent eight decades perfecting a mock-intellectual routine laced with malapropisms and non sequiturs.

    “Protocol takes precedence over procedure,” he quipped in a typical self-satisfied insight.
    On an election-year outcome, he once pronounced: “I’m sorry, the returns are fragmentary, but the indication is that there will be a turnout that won’t come up to the expectations of those who, through their own analyses, have proved the percentages will only relate to the outcome.”

    On a morning show’s weather report, he explained that the day’s temperature could be attributed to “a weather mass coming from Canada, a country we don’t own yet” clashing with “a hot-air mass coming from Washington.”

    Pathetic: Brits Ban President Trump From Addressing UK Parliament…
    – but had no problem with the President of CHINA

    The Speaker – one of three ‘keyholders’ for the ancient hall who must agree to its use – said he had been opposed to the US President addressing MPs and peers before his migrant ban.

    But in an extraordinary broadside from the Speaker’s chair, he said the controversial ban on migrants from seven majority Muslim countries had increased his opposition even further.

    Republican Club Snubs Trump Supporters

    “They hate Donald Trump, and they were really pissed when he won,” said expelled executive board member Sandra Chase.
    Trump supporters reported that the governing board of the club stationed security guards at the meeting where the changes were announced. Several former members allege that club leadership violated several bylaws in order to achieve the purge, chiefly that members were not given a 30 day’s notice of removal, as required by club rules.

    Female Action Heroes Fighting with Legs is Now ‘Sexist’

    Apparently, they’ve never seen a male action hero or an MMA fight.

    Slate writer Madeline Raynor writes, “There are many female action heroes kicking ass in movies these days, but one of their favored moves smacks of sexism.”

    Apparently, these leftists have never seen a mixed martial arts fight or been to a jiu-jitsu class in which this is a basic move. And somehow they’ve missed decades of male-centric action movies and TV shows in which the hero has dangled above an unsuspecting enemy, wrapped his meaty thighs around their neck, and finished them off in a spine-breaking display of sheer badassness. But now that heroines are doing it, it’s sexist. Again, another classic liberalism paradox: women can do anything a man can do unless they look sexy doing it.

      These moves bother me not in the least. What bugs the HECK out of me is female fighters with their hair flying all over. Real women warriors wear their hair short or in a tight bun or braid. They do NOT impede their own vision or give their opponents such a handy dandy way to grab them and inflict pain.

      • That drives me crazy. I don’t even know anything about martial arts, but it’s just common sense that you wouldn’t do that. I guess movie directors think the women look sexier and more alluring with their long hair flying, but no serious fighter of either sex would do anything so foolish. After all, look what happened to Absalom (II Samuel 18:9-14).

          The high high heels and too tight, too short, sleeveless dresses they force actresses to wear also gripe me. I read somewhere, I think it was Paulie Perette on NCIS, “The shorter my skirts got, the more the ratings went up.” Makes me kinda sick.
