Spraying the field and hope I hit something. The media never take any time off from their jihad to bring the president down. The Democrat Party doesn’t have to lift a finger.

3 Republican Senators reject repeal of Obama’s draconian methane emission rules

CAN YOU GUESS WITHOUT LOOKING? I BET YOU CAN.

President Trump has scored significant successes undoing the toxic eco-activist legacy of his predecessor, including the executive orders moving the signing of Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines forward.
However, it seems that he cannot rely on certain establishment Republicans to continue his efforts. Before reading this piece further, pause for a moment and ask yourself which 3 GOP Senators would, when given a chance to vote to repeal Obama’s drilling rules, would just say “NO”.

If you guessed John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Susan Collins, you would be correct.

Wisconsin Democrats still blaming voter ID laws for Clinton’s loss

The subject of “Why did Hillary lose” has become the 21st century replacement for Why Can’t Johnny Read, and there will likely be even more books written about it before this issue ever settles into the dustbin of history. Everyone seems to have their own convenient version of the story, but at least some liberals in Wisconsin have settled on a favorite old stalking horse… voter ID laws.

Wisconsin voter ID law proved insurmountable for many votersBut it is not hard to find the dying woman whose license had expired or the recent graduate whose student ID was deficient — or Harris, who at 66 made her way to her polling place despite chronic lung disease and a torn ligament in her knee.
She had lost her driver’s license just before Election Day. Aware of the new law, she brought her Social Security and Medicare cards as well as a county-issued bus pass that displayed her photo. Not good enough. She was turned away.

Betsy DeVos Booed While Giving Commencement Address at Historically Black University

Half the graduating class turned their backs on DeVos, requiring the university president to intervene. Many students and alumni had objected to having DeVos as speaker in part because they said the outreach by President Trump and the education secretary to historically black schools is an empty gesture. But the president of the university defended her work as a philanthropist and her commitment to education.

NBC’s Lester Holt Interrupts Trump 9 Times in 3 Minutes – Gave Obama a Cake Walk Interview in January
But back in January of this year Lester Holt gave President Obama a cake walk interview.  Holt was nothing but agreeable with the former president who left office with the worst economic and foreign policy record in US history.

NBCNews.com on Thursday posted a two minute and 34 second preview clip of anchor Lester Holt’s exclusive sit-down with President Donald Trump. The clip features Holt conducting an interrogation-like interview in which the NBC personality interrupted Trump nine times and spoke over the president on many of those occasions.

Enraged Californians rebel against Gov. Brown’s massive tax hike on cars and gasWHEN YOU CAN’T GET A HANDOUT FROM THE FEDS, GET IT FROM THE HARD-WORKING PEOPLE. CUTTING SPENDING IS COMPLETELY OUT OF THE QUESTION.

In the two weeks since the Democrat signed Senate Bill 1, opponents have launched an initiative drive to repeal the $52.4 billion transportation package as well as a recall campaign to eject a vulnerable Democratic state senator who is seen as the deciding vote for the law.

“The voters are enraged,” said Assemblyman Travis Allen, the Orange County Republican behind the repeal initiative, which is pegged to the November 2018 ballot.

Gas is already expensive in California — the state vies with Hawaii for the nation’s highest per-gallon prices — and SB1 will make it more so by dinging motorists with a 12-cent-per-gallon excise tax hike on gasoline, a 20-cent increase on diesel and higher vehicle registration fees in order to fill potholes, repair roads and bridges, and expand mass transit.

Steve Schmidt: McCain, Graham, Sasse Might Want “Democratic Congress To Protect National Security”

John McCain 2008 campaign staffer & MSNBC “GOP strategist” Steve Schmidt said that Republicans who support President Trump have become “faithless to their oaths” and suggested some members of the GOP like Senators Lindsey Graham, Ben Sasse, Richard Burr, and John McCain might be forced to support the Democrats in 2018 on grounds of “national security.”

NYPD cops forbidden from breaking up noisy parties
A new NYPD directive forbids cops from entering a residence in response to a noise complaint — unless they’re given permission.

The bizarre constraint is the result of costly, successful lawsuits against the city by homeowners who complained that cops barged onto their properties without a warrant, multiple sources told The Post.

“Parties will go into early morning, which will involve more drinking and neighbors getting into fights, resulting in more shootings,” noted another law enforcement source.

“It will be a long, hot summer.”

Democrat Refers to Middle America as ‘Podunk, USA’

HEY, DEMOCRATS… THIS ATTITUDE IS WHAT COST YOU THE ELECTION
Remarks by Rep. Anna Eshoo (D., Calif.) during a closed-door Energy and Commerce Committee meeting with Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai raised eyebrows from those present.

The moment occurred when Eshoo pushed back against Pai when he was discussing expanding broadband access to rural areas.

    Here’s Why MSM So Upset Comey is Gone=> Comey-Clinton Ties Go Way Back – He First Pardoned Bill in 2002

    Looking to get back into government after a stint in private practice, Comey signed on as deputy special counsel to the Senate Whitewater Committee. In 1996, after months of work, Comey came to some damning conclusions: Hillary Clinton was personally involved in mishandling documents and had ordered others to block investigators as they pursued their case. Worse, her behavior fit into a pattern of concealment: she and her husband had tried to hide their roles in two other matters under investigation by law enforcement.
    Comey parlayed the Whitewater job into top posts in Virginia and New York, returning to Manhattan in 2002 to be the top federal prosecutor there.
    In 2002 US Attorney General James Comey first investigated and exonerated Bill Clinton for his clemency of four men who donated to Hillary Clinton’s senate campaign. The four men misappropriated tens of millions of dollars in federal aid intended for housing, education and business.

    Texas A&M Won’t Fire Professor Who Said “Some White People Must Die”…


    THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HATE SPEECH AND FREE SPEECH DEPENDS ON WHAT COLOR YOU ARE
    In a May 10, 2017 email to students obtained by Red Alert Politics, Texas A&M President Michael K. Young refused to discipline or fire Professor Tommy Curry. Curry called for white genocide, saying in a 2012 podcast “in order to be equal, in order to be liberated, some white people may have to die.”

    Brzezinski Scolds CNN for Having Kellyanne Conway on the Air: ‘It’s Politics Porn’ and ‘Ratings Crack’

    Kellyanne Conway inspires epic Anderson Cooper eye roll

    Conway also didn’t address the president’s sudden change in opinion, instead pivoting to how she’d appeared on Cooper’s show in the fall and predicted that they would win Michigan. Thus prompting Cooper’s pronounced eye roll.

    FBI Agents Furious With Comey Ready to Come Forward: ‘They Are Going to Talk’
    Comey’s firing will start the healing process for the entire bureau as many agents are furious with his handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal and how he didn’t suggest the Justice Department prosecute her over her mishandling of classified information.

    Comey is arguably the most corrupt FBI Director to ever serve. He brought shame to the bureau and the men and women who serve with integrity should come forward to tell their side of the story. Grab some popcorn because this is going to be a wild ride as more people expose his web of deceit!

    Acting FBI Director: Yeah, The Decision Not to Indict Hillary Clinton Caused Controversy Within The Bureau

    The announcement of a non-indictment came just days after former Attorney General Loretta Lynch was caught secretly meeting with former President Bill Clinton on her private plane in Phoenix. When caught, Lynch claimed the meeting was about grandchildren and golf.

    Media reports at the time indicated the decision not to indict Clinton, combined with the secret meeting, was highly disconcerting to many FBI agents.

    ABC Cancels Conservative Tim Allen Sitcom ‘Last Man Standing’ Despite Strong Ratings

    CAN’T HAVE CONSERVATIVE FAMILY VALUES INTERFERE WITH OUR CELEBRATING HOMOSEXUALITY,ABORTION,TRANSGENDERS,RACE-BAITING AND SOCIAL JUSTICE.
    A sixth-season episode found Baxter blasting politically correct “microaggressions” and drawing up a speech for his daughter’s graduation: “To quote future Nobel Prize winner Lee Greenwood, ‘I’m proud to be an American.’ Not just because I have the right to speak my mind or carry an awesome gun, but because it’s the land of opportunity. Some whiny babies might not think so, but in America, if you work hard, anyone can be successful.”
    Even more surprising, the cancellation comes after ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said at a London media summit in December that broadcast networks were not paying enough attention to the television viewers in the country who helped elect Donald Trump president.
    Last Man Standing fans took to Twitter Wednesday and Thursday to urge another network, perhaps Netflix or CMT, to pick it up, while some accused the ABC of axing the show for political reasons.

    Pelosi threatens to force vote on outside Russia probe

    SOMEBODY TELL THIS ADDLE-BRAINED CRONE SHE’S NOT THE SPEAKER ANYMORE
    House Democrats are eyeing plans to force a vote on the creation of an independent panel to investigate President Trump’s ties to Russia following the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey this week.

    Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday urged GOP leaders to bring the legislation to the floor next week when Congress returns to Washington following a recess. If they decline, as expected, Democrats will try to force a vote with a discharge petition.

      I watched a clip of a recent speech she made from a prepared text. She seemed to have a lot of trouble tracking and speaking the lines on the page. Plus she called China “TI-na.” Has she always been such a ditz or she heading down the path to senility or a stroke or something?

    Just for the record.

    Still, the pic is always funny.
