4 Pete’s Sake… Monday, Oct. 23

Just a whole bunch of different stuff. Buckle up.

Melania Trump cuts bloated first lady payroll from Michelle Obama days.

During then-President Barack Obama’s first year in office, 16 people were listed working for Michelle Obama, earning a combined $1.24 million a year.  This year, just four people were listed working for Melania Trump as of June. Their salaries totaled $486,700.

Harvey claims he’s cured!

Harvey Weinstein has completed a one-week sex addiction rehab in Arizona.  Psychologist says he is ‘dealing with his anger’ and starting to ‘work on empathy.’
This despite reports that Weinstein was boorish in group therapy session.  The disgraced producer was pulled from group after one session, psychologist says.  The psychologist downplayed previous reports that the 65-year-old film producer had fallen asleep in group sessions and ranted about conspiracy theories.

Nothing is Sacred or Off-Limits When Opposing Trump

He said, “We’ve seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty.” Ahhh, casual cruelty. The ol’ combination of noun with unlikely adjective spoken in coy alliteration. Like “compassionate conservative.” A one hit wonder returning to the rhyme scheme that carried him to the top of the charts.

Most Trump supporters voted on economic issues and would not harm a flea. There are a small few who think the IRS is microwaving their brains, sure, but every successful political coalition has its whacks. Trump’s opposition seems to be dominated by whacks who think he disagrees with them to be mean. Two former presidents and a former aspirant to that office have now climbed under the tinfoil hat.

One America Appeal: Five Former Presidents Gather In Support Of Hurricane Relief, Donald Trump Praises Efforts

I’D KEEP CLINTON AWAY FROM IT…THEY MADE BILLIONS IN HAITI RELIEF DISAPPEAR

The concert, which was streamed live on the One America Appeal website, featured performances by country band Alabama, Grammy-winning “Soul Man” singer Sam Moore, gospel legend Yolanda Adams as well as Texas musicians Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen. College Station is the home to George W. Bush’s presidential library.
In a video recorded earlier today, Donald Trump showed support of One America Appeal, calling the quintet of former Presidents, “some of America’s finest public servants.” He and Melania Trump expressed gratitude for their “tremendous assistance.”

Gold Star widow Myeshia Johnson has ‘nothing to say’ to Trump after controversial condolence call
THE GRIEVING WIDOW HAS BECOME A CONVENIENT, ALMOST UNASSAILABLE TOOL FOR THE LEFT TO BLUDGEON TRUMP WITH

[CtH: They’ll ignore her once she isn’t useful, just like they did to Cindy Sheehan after Obama got in office and suddenly the Left didn’t give a toot about how many wars he involved us in or how many troops were being injured or killed on his watch.]

Nineteen days after her husband’s death and two days after his wrenching burial, the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson said she has “nothing to say” to President Trump, whose condolence call pulled the grieving widow into the center of a national controversy.
“Very upset and hurt; it made me cry even worse,” Myeshia Johnson told “Good Morning America” about her conversation with the president.

BEING A CYNIC, I’D CHECK HER BANK ACCOUNT

Donald Trump Punches Back At Widow Of La David Johnson After Her ‘GMA’ Interview

TRUMP DOESN’T QUIETLY ALLOW THE SAVAGES TO RUN ALL OVER HIM LIKE BUSH DID.

President Donald Trump punched back at the widow of a soldier killed in Niger on Twitter this morning.

“I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from the beginning, without hesitation!” Trump tweeted this morning, less than an hour after Johnson said otherwise in an interview with Good Morning America.

[CtH: This is exactly how the Sheehan thing went down.  Bush met with the parents and the Sheehans told the press afterwards that they had had a good talk.  Only later did the “bereaved” mother become the anti-Bush darling of Democrats with her highly publicized squat by his ranch, her demands to meet with him, and her faux hunger strike.  She didn’t eat BETWEEN MEALS, though she was photographed sucking on a can of soda while she had her hair done!  Meanwhile, her now-estranged husband and the deaad soldier’s sibs were very opposed to what she was doing.  She made a big deal about the boy’s grave stone, forcing the family to have no marker for months.  Finally, on the day it was placed, Cindy was too busy doing anti-war crap in Europe to attend.]

Trump Signs EO Permitting Recall of 1K Retired USAF Pilots; Leftist heads explode.

It’s the draft! We’re going to war! The sky, it’s fallllling!

[CtH: Morons.  There is a period of time following retirement when the military has every right to recall a soldier.  My two Marines were on recall for four YEARS after they left active duty.]

President Trump campaigned on rebuilding our military and refocusing its mission on military matters rather than on political correctness and voracious down-sizing. He also campaigned on destroying ISIS and radical Islamic terrorism.

In aid of these twin campaign promises and goals, Trump signed an Executive Order (EO) permitting the United States Air Force to recall up to one thousand retired pilots. The cap lift applies to all branches of the military.

The left’s response was an epic meltdown.

https://legalinsurrection.com/2017/10/trump-signs-eo-permitting-recall-of-1k-retired-usaf-pilots-leftist-heads-explode/Bush Took a Knee When Obama Fundamentally Transformed America

FOR EIGHT YEARS HE SAID NOTHING, DID NOTHING.

[CtH: I was proud of him for keeping his nose out of Obama’s business, unlike Carter who even visited foreign leaders after he was not president.  But this?!  Now I’m disgusted.  And sad.  It reminds me of when Barbara Bush, who I have always admired, reportedly said she wished Sarah Palin would go back to Alaska and stay there.  The Bush family is really hard core establishment Republicans, aren’t they.  Sigh.] President Bush is facing fierce backlash from conservatives after he delivered a speech that has been interpreted as a direct attack on President Trump.

“Bigotry seems emboldened,” Bush said. “Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.”

Planned Parenthood Defends Rep. Wilson: Trump Administration Has ‘Pattern of Attacking Black Women’
Planned Parenthood, however, was founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger, whose bust an organization of black pastors has tried to have removed from the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery. The abortion giant also presents its highest honor – the Margaret Sanger Award – to individuals who promote abortion rights, such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who said unborn babies have no constitutional rights.

    McCain takes veiled shots at Trump over draft dodging

    Sen. John McCain took some veiled shots at President Trump over the weekend — slamming high-income draft dodgers for using their wealth to avoid serving in the Vietnam War.

    “One aspect of the conflict, by the way, that I will never, ever countenance is that we drafted the lowest income level of America and the highest income level found a doctor that would say that they had a bone spur,” the Arizona lawmaker told C-SPAN3 in an interview that aired Sunday.

    Hillary Clinton To Receive ‘Wonder Woman’ Award
    STEINEM HAD TO SLEEP WITH MORT ZUCKERMAN TO GET THE MONEY SHE NEEDED TO KEEP HER STUPID MAGAZINE AFLOAT


    Group co-founder Gloria Steinem cited Clinton’s “grace, grit, determination, integrity, humor and fortitude” as reasons why she is worthy of the “Wonder Woman” award. Steinem also said that Clinton has “inspired and protected” people around the world with her actions.

      I don’t recall a time when Wonder Woman lost a fight, but if she did, I can’t imagine she went on a year long t.v. and book tour to bitch about all the reasons it wasn’t HER fault she lost.

    MSNBC Guest: Trump ‘Defecating on Women,’ ‘Taking Away Rights’

    On Saturday’s AM Joy, frequent MSNBC guest Karine Jean-Pierre of MoveOn.org hyperbolically claimed that President Donald Trump is “defecating on women” with executive orders that are “taking away rights from women.”

    She also made her latest contribution to imagining nonexistent racial double standards when she claimed that black women are more likely to be targeted by President Trump in spite of the many white men and white women who have also been on the receiving end of insults from Trump

    UN Agency Makes Mugabe ‘Goodwill Ambassador’ One Month After He Endorsed Killers of White Farmers

    APPARENTLY SINCE THIS POSTED SATURDAY THE WHO HAS RESCINDED THE APPOINTMENT OF THIS SUBHUMAN FILTH
    The World Health Organization (WHO) has made Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe an official ‘Goodwill Ambassador’ just a month after he vowed that the killers of white farmers in his country would never be prosecuted.
    The global bureaucrat’s glowing praise drew scorn from Human Rights Watch, with chief executive Kenneth Roth pointing out that “Mugabe’s corruption [and] his utter mismanagement of the economy has devastated health services” in Zimbabwe.

    Afghan troops go AWOL in U.S.; IG says wastes taxpayer money, poses security threat

    My guess is that they didn’t want to go back and fight after training. Better to stay with cousin Habib, get a fake ID and get on the taxpayer gravy train.
    ****************************************************
    More than 150 Afghan troops brought to the U.S. for military training have gone AWOL since 2005, with 13 of them still unaccounted for and perhaps living here as illegal immigrants now, an inspector general said in a new report Friday.

    Part of the problem is that the U.S. never puts the trainees through an in-person interview and exempts them from registering as aliens when they arrive — both steps that other visitors would normally have to go through.

    So what was John Podesta’s now collapsed Russian green energy scheme really all about?

    I’LL BET HE’S NOT GIVING THE MONEY BACK
    A Russian government-backed green energy company called Joule lost a lot of money as it collapsed in the wake of President Trump’s “unexpected” election to president. It had been literally banking on a Hillary Clinton electoral victory, according to a new investigative report from the Daily Caller, expecting that a Clinton presidency’s renewable energy focus would be just the thing for the company’s fortunes. The plan flamed out when Trump was elected.

    That made its ties with Clinton campaign manager John Podesta utterly worthless.

    Former NPR CEO Ventures Out of Blue State Media Bubble to Expose Leftwing Bias

    Away from his Democrat media enclave, Stern discovered that red America is much more complex and humane than the crude leftwing caricatures used to dismiss them and their concerns.
    Spurred by a fear that red and blue America were drifting irrevocably apart, I decided to venture out from my overwhelmingly Democratic neighborhood and engage Republicans where they live, work and pray. For an entire year, I embedded myself with the other side, standing in pit row at a NASCAR race, hanging out at Tea Party meetings and sitting in on Steve Bannon’s radio show. I found an America far different from the one depicted in the press and imagined by presidents (“cling to guns or religion”) and presidential candidates (“basket of deplorables”) alike.
