More fake news from a Leftie posing as a distinguished scholar. Heckuva job, Kruggie.

There is an outbreak of a “c” disease in Puerto Rico but it’s conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye, not cholera.  Pink eye is common; I’d wager most of us have had it at least once.  But according to the CDC, the bug that causes cholera is not endemic to the U.S., Puerto Rico, or the U.S. Virgin Islands.

A lot of people who voted for this Dumbocrat “wasn’t educated”

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) has a well-documented history of rude and abusive behavior toward her staff and the public, and of lying and making absurdly ignorant remarks, often in prepared statements. Below is a short list of examples.

2014 Jackson Lee lies

  • In 2014, Jackson Lee declared the U.S. Constitution to be 400 years old.
  • In 2013, Jackson Lee called herself a “freed slave.”

In 2011, at a hearing on the radicalization of Islam in America, Jackson Lee sounded off at length and beyond the time allotted to her about how horrible it was that they were there, because apparently talking about the radicalization of Islam is an insult to all Muslims. Or something.

  • In 2010, Jackson Lee said Tea Party members used to belong to the KKK.
  • In 2010, Jackson Lee she said, “Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working.” At that time, Jackson Lee was a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
  • In 2009, Jackson Lee spoke at pedophile Michael Jackson’s memorial service, calling him an “icon” and “someone who will be honored forever and forever and forever and forever.”
  • In 1997, Jackson Lee asked if the Mars Pathfinder had succeeded in taking a picture of the flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969. At that time, Jackson Lee was a member of the House Committee on Science.

According to Jackson Lee’s Wikipedia bio, she was graduated from both Yale University and the University of Virginia Law School. Methinks she should be considered for the role of poster person for the effort to stop Affirmative Action in our universities.

The Swamp Claims Another Victim

It is appalling how the media takes such an intense interest in investigative journalism only when we have a republican president. Donald Trump has gone through a lot of advisers for a lot of reasons. Gen. McMaster and his son in law Jared Kushner are giving him terrible advice and Gen. Kelly is keeping a lot of important facts from him. All this is to the delight of a savage power that wants nothing more than to destroy him. If not him, then his surrogates. The latest is HHS secretary, Dr. Tom Price.

HHS Secretary Tom Price Resigns After Private Flights Scandal
Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price has resigned, according to the White House after a series of reports uncovered expensive private flights billed to taxpayers for travel.

HHS Secretary Price Resigns Over Travel; Did Obama Aides do the Same?
But let’s also stipulate a couple of things. With President Trump in office, the mainstream media seems to have regained an excitement for investigative journalism that it had lost during Barack Obama’s time in office. I’d like to see an investigation now of the travel habits of Obama cabinet members not involved in national security. I’d be willing to bet it would be revealing.

No One Embodied This Failure Of GOP Leadership Better Than Tom Price
Price’s main job for the White House was to get an Obamacare repeal passed through Congress — a job he failed miserably at. However, that failure is now likely going to be overshadowed by his extensive misuse of public money.
Instead of making the interests of citizens the priority, Republicans are left fighting for their policy in the framework created by their opposition.
The same thing happened with attempting to repeal Obamacare, the issue Andrea Mitchell was able to attack for the lack of diversity among its crafters. Democrats shrieked that millions of people were going to die thanks to evil white men while Republicans made obscure arguments about federalism.
There’s a reason Obamacare has survived repeal after multiple attempts by Trump and his allies in Congress.

Media Celebrate Tom Price’s Resignation As ‘Scalp’ For Politico
Reporters celebrated Price’s resignation as a “scalp” for Politico reporters Dan Diamond and Rachana Pradhan. The two reporters first revealed Price’s use of planes, which reportedly exceeded more than $1 million in taxpayer funds.
One Politico reporter joked that the outlet’s reporters were going to dump “a cooler of Gatorade” on Diamond and Pradhan.
Maggie Severns Retweeted Rachana D. Pradhan

.@rachanadixit and @ddiamond we are gathering a cooler of Gatorade to dump over you at your desks @ now

Flight furor: Obama officials also took pricey, non-commercial planes
Top figures during President Barack Obama’s tenure who used non-commercial planes for travel included then-attorney generals Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, then-FBI director Robert Mueller, and then-CIA director and defense secretary Leon Panetta.
Leon Panetta, who served as both CIA director and defense secretary during the Obama years, frequently used a government airplane to commute back and forth from Washington to California nearly every weekend at taxpayer expense.
The Washington Times reported then that each flight cost about $32,000 but Panetta only had to pay $630 per trip, because that was the cost of an equivalent round-trip commercial flight. It noted that the government required defense secretaries to use a military plane for travel, and Panetta had the approval of Obama to fly home every weekend.

Special counsel investigators start questioning White House staffers
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team had been expected to start interviewing White House staffers, having already sought a wide variety of documents related to their probe of Russia’s attempted meddling in the 2016 election.
In a separate development, Fox News has learned that congressional investigators as well as federal agents are scrutinizing a Trump campaign national security meeting in March 2016 at Washington, D.C.’s Old Post Office, now the site of the Trump International Hotel.

Librarian mocked on Twitter, chastised by employers

To celebrate “National Read a Book Day,” First Lady Melania Trump sent a collection of 10 Dr. Seuss books to one school in each state across the nation.  Liz Phipps Soeiro, a librarian at the public school in Cambridge, MA, that received the gift wrote a huffy “thanks, but no thanks” letter that sneered at both the fact of the gift and its contents.

  • “My students have access to a school library with over nine thousand volumes and a librarian with a graduate degree in library science.”
  • “Dr. Seuss’s illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes.”

2015 Michelle Obama Dr Seuss

  • Soeiro was soundly and justifiably mocked on Twitter. My personal fave: “Cripes, lady. Come down off the cross. We can use the wood.”
  • Soeiro also received a slap on the wrist from her employers who said she was not authorized to reject the gift and had no business using it to push her personal political agenda.

If Michelle Obama had donated books celebrating gay parenting and a Christian librarian had responded the way Soeiro did, Prog activists would have demanded she be fired immediately and blackballed from working at any library ever again.

Some honesty from the Left

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case that could result in “Right to Work” applying to public sector employees, possibly resulting in no mandatory dues payments to public sector unions.

Democrats would have us believe that their support for unions (which includes opposition to “Right to Work” laws) is All About Workers’ Rights. ThinkProgress Justice Editor Ian Millhiser reveals the Democrats’ real agenda in this surprisingly honest tweet.

WWHD?… What Would Hillary Do?

Every day I thank Almighty God that we have Donald Trump as our president and not that greedy, lying, corrupt hag with a heart as black as night. Every day the attacks on our president begin anew. It would break a lesser man, but the establishment has never had to deal with anybody like Trump. They beat on him mercilessly over the relief efforts in Puerto Rico and the Gulf. He doesn’t do things to be liked… he does them because it’s the right thing to do.

President Trump’s inaugural committee will give $3 million to hurricane relief
According to the Times, the private committee raised $107 million for the inauguration. It’s unclear how much money the committee still has.
“The surplus of these privately donated funds will be put to great substantive use for relief victims throughout the heartbreaking regions of America impacted by the recent catastrophic disaster,” committee chairman Thomas Barrack Jr. told the Times

More Evidence Facebook Is Targeting Conservative News Outlets
Conservatives shunned traditional media for online news outlets in 2016.
A Columbia Journalism Review study in March found that The Drudge Report, Breitbart, FOX News, The Hill and The Gateway Pundit were the most prominent conservative news outlets during the 2016 election.

Hillary Clinton’s Lawyer Helped Facebook Avoid Political Ad Disclosures
Elias and the team argued that because the ads were so small that such a disclosure would be impractical, CNN reports. The Federal Election Commission, which consists of three Democrats and three Republicans, split 3-3 on their vote of allowing Facebook to forego the disclaimers.
However, the split vote allowed savvy lawyers to work around the request since the FEC did not issue an opinion. Facebook went ahead and allowed political advertisements on its site without disclosures following the commission’s gridlock.

Senators close to bipartisan deal on health exchanges: Schumer
Schumer said Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander, a Republican, and ranking Democrat Patty Murray had resurrected a bipartisan approach, which had been cast aside amid the latest near-vote on a repeal bill.

Democrats’ best hope for 2020: Oprah
If you need to set a thief to catch a thief, you need a star — a grand, outsized, fearless star whom Trump can neither intimidate nor outshine — to catch a star. We’re through the looking glass here. America is discarding old approaches in politics. Democrats will have to do the same to match the mood to the moment.

Trump just picked two conservatives for the 5th Circuit, one of which is Justice Don Willett
Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett:
Willett — a prolific Twitter user whose wit with more than 96,000 followers and the title of Texas “Tweeter Laureate” –had gently mocked Trump in some tweets during the campaign for the White House.
Dallas appellate lawyer James Ho:
Ho, a naturalized U.S. citizen, moved to this country with his family from Taiwan when he was a young child. He received a bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and his law degree from the University of Chicago School of Law.

It’s time for Mitch McConnell to go
Make no mistake, Tuesday’s Republican Senate primary in Alabama centered on McConnell’s failures. Stephen Bannon, on television before Roy Moore’s victory, declared McConnell guilty of “economic hate crimes” against the middle class. There is delightful timing in Moore winning his primary battle against the McConnell-funded Sen. Luther Strange on the very day that McConnell surrendered in the health-care fight.

Elementary School Librarian Rejects ‘Racist Propaganda’ Dr. Seuss Books From Melania Trump
“I work in a district that has plenty of resources, which contributes directly to ‘excellence,'” Soeiro wrote. “Cambridge, Massachusetts, is an amazing city with robust social programming, a responsive city government, free all-day kindergarten, and well-paid teachers (relatively speaking — many of us can’t afford to live in the city in which we teach). Soeiro added that the first lady should be donating books to school libraries in cities like Detroit, Philadelphia, and Chicago, because their libraries are being “shuttered” by policies put in place by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

Kamala Harris gets potentially huge boost due to change in Democrats’ presidential primary schedule
Presidential contenders will now need to invest time and money into vying for California’s hundreds of delegates. Running campaigns in California is a costly proposition because the vast state encompasses several major media markets, which requires multiple ad buys.
The move could also buoy Ms Harris, a first-term Democrat whose potential presidential aspirations have fueled rumors since shortly after she took office. Having served two terms as the state’s attorney general, Ms Harris would have the advantage of name recognition and an existing donor network.

Progressive Criticizes Jesus for Not Being Very Christlike

From The Babylon Bee.

SEATTLE, WA—After reading several chapters from the gospels over the weekend, local progressive believer Wendy Butler reportedly published a Patheos blog post in which she criticized Jesus of Nazareth for “not being very Christlike.”

The blog post took Jesus to task for His “unloving and problematic” teachings.

“He devotes entire sections of His sermons to ranting about archaic religious concepts like hell and the last judgment instead of just coming alongside the marginalized and affirming their sins,” Butler said. “Very little of what He did on earth I would describe as life-giving. Frankly, I do a better job of being Christlike than Christ Himself.”

The woman was also agitated to find that Jesus didn’t devote any of His time recorded in the Scriptures to advocating for government-subsidized healthcare or women’s abortion rights.

“He had a few good things to say about loving our neighbors, but the bad outweighs the good in Jesus’ teachings, if we’re looking at things honestly here,” her essay continued. “He really needed to ask Himself, ‘What would Jesus do?’ more often, and then He’d have devoted a lot more of His time to social justice, like me.”

At publishing time, a horrified Butler had discovered the description of the Redeemer coming in His wrath in Revelation 19.
