Just a smorgasbord of things today.
My stepson is 36 and he and some of his friends were on Facebook yesterday talking about “the old days” and how good things were back then. Being the old grump I am, with all my filters long since gone, I had to inject myself. I simply commented that they weren’t old enough to have any ‘good old days’ yet. But wait, it will come faster than they could ever imagine.
Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey Storm Al Franken’s Office Demanding His Resignation
Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey stormed Senator Al Franken’s D.C. office Wednesday, demanding the embattled lawmaker resign over multiple sexual harassment allegations against him. Reporter Melanie Morgan, a Franken accuser, joined Broaddrick and Willey. Of course, Broaddrick and Willey are two of former President Bill Clinton’s most famous accusers.
After a few minutes of waiting for Franken, Morgan shouts, “Don’t be a coward, come out and talk to us!”
“Speak to us! We have something to say to you!” Morgan says.
Franken’s handlers then tell the women that he’s busy and will not have time to meet with them, prompting Morgan to recount allegations against the then-comedian. Franken allegedly stalked Morgan after they disagreed on the OMB’s budget numbers during a taping of ABC’s late night show Politically Incorrect in 2000.
Capitol Hill police then show up to Franken’s office, demanding the group of women leave.
“This is a place of business,” the officers say.
THE LITTLE WEASEL WAS HIDING BEHIND THE DOOR
Destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism: Trump Hits Back At Theresa May
May condemned Trump earlier Wednesday for retweeting three videos from the right-wing group Britain First that purported to show Muslims attacking Europeans, breaking a statue of the Virgin Mary, and beating someone to death.
Trump retweeting these videos has lead to a firestorm of media criticism. MSNBC labelled Britain First a “white nationalist” group continuously throughout the day.
CNN’s Dana Bash also claimed that the “only people who are supporting what the president did are racists and fascists and bigots,” something that gave her a literal “stomach ache.”
THEY KEEP REFERRING TO BRITAIN FIRST AS A “FAR-RIGHT” GROUP AND CLAIM THESE VIDEOS ARE FAKE.
EUROPE STILL REFUSES TO ACCEPT THAT THEIR WELCOMING IN MILLIONS OF THESE MURDEROUS PIGS WILL END IN THEIR DESTRUCTION.
President Trump: ‘Investigate’ Joe Scarborough’s Dead Congressional Intern
THIS WAS A STUPID MOVE. ON A DAY IT WAS ANNOUNCED THE GDP HIT 3.3%, WHICH HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN TOUTING, HE’S GIVING CREDIBILITY TO SOMEONE MOST PEOPLE HAVE NEVER HEARD OF.
“So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?” Trump tweeted, adding, “And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”
Tired of all the winning? 3Q GDP revised upward to higher than expected 3.3%
Yet there is a connection. The free market is happily responding to thousands and thousands of regulations being cut, an end to business being targeted as the enemy, and the prospect of fairer taxes. What it means is jobs, jobs, jobs, and lots of investment bringing more growth.
The Obama years were years of subpar growth, where GDP never broke the 3.0% growth line in any quarter. Averaged in with the Beltway bureaucrat bonanza, the weak, anemic Obama-era figures reflect how much was lost around the rest of the country – as money went to Washington, and voters grew poorer. This is the cash the Ohios, the West Virginias, the Pennsylvanias – and other neglected states – sent, virtually all of whose voters defiantly cast their ballots in 2016 for Trump.
It’s what normal people call change.
Case shows judges matter
“A U.S. District Court judge in Washington on Tuesday handed a big victory to President Donald Trump, ruling in favor of the administration in its bid to install White House budget director Mick Mulvaney as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau,” Politico reported this evening.
When Trump took office, he issued two executive orders to halt travel with seven, and then six, countries. Obama appointees blocked the orders. The Supreme Court eventually stepped in and let the orders go through, unmolested.
That was judicial activism. Those Obama-nauts exceeded their authority.
I keep bringing up judicial appointments because unfortunately the courts have become the dominant branch of the federal government
Members Of Congress And Media “Stunned” That Trump Is Still Standing & Fighting Back
He wasn’t supposed to win. But he did.
He wasn’t supposed to have survived the onslaught of media backlash since taking office. But he has.
Today members of Congress and the media are said to be amazed by Donald Trump’s resiliency and ability to continue fighting back against the ongoing effort to diminish and/or destroy his presidency.
Hillary Clinton: Trump’s “Obsessed” With Me Because I Got More Votes Than Him
“Well, he’s a little obsessed with me, but I think it’s partly his own ego because he knows I got more votes and he knows that there are questions about the election that deserve answers,” Clinton said in the interview. “And he knows I’m still speaking out, I haven’t retreated under a rock somewhere.”
Rep. James Clyburn Compares John Conyers’ Accusers to Notorious Murderer, Implies He is Victim of White Women
THE RACE CARD… DON’T COMMIT FELONIES WITHOUT IT
Also at this morning’s House Democratic caucus: James Clyburn compared Conyers’ accusers to the child murderer Susan Smith, who initially claimed a black man had abducted her kids. Clyburn said, these are all white women who’ve made these charges against Conyers.
Another top House Democrat took $50K from taxpayers to keep a former staffer quiet
Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva’s secret deal with a former female staffer was revealed by The Washington Times on Monday. The payout was negotiated by the House Employment Counsel, the body’s attorney, and cost taxpayers $48,395.
The settlement, however, may have violated House rules, The Times reported. It’s against House rules for a lawmaker to retain “an employee who does not perform duties for the offices of the employing authority commensurate with the compensation such employee receives.”
Conyers will not seek re-election in 2018
AFTER 56 YEARS THIS PIG WOULD NOT GIVE UP HIS SEAT UNLESS HE MADE SOME KIND OF DEAL.
DESPITE ALL THIS, HIS VOTERS WOULD READILY VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN. MORALS AND SCRUPLES ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY IN DETROIT.
The longest serving member of Congress plans to formally announce in January that he won’t be on the ballot in 2018, sources close to the situation told WDIV in Detroit.
How Hateful Are the Democrats? This Hateful
WHEN I WROTE A POST THE OTHER DAY COMPARING THE TWO WHITE HOUSES, I KNEW SHE WOULD BE SAVAGED BY THE SAME PRESS THAT CALLED THE WATER BUFFALO A “FASHION ICON.”
You can’t make this stuff up: Vogue, a reliable Democratic Party outlet, has gone crazy over First Lady Melania Trump’s White House Christmas decorations:
Melania Trump unveiled the White House holiday decorations on Monday, which are, as some people on the internet have noticed, very, very white.
White decorations at Christmas? The horror!
This is truly beyond the pale: In a year during which many have speculated that Melania hates her husband and does not want to be First Lady at all (a claim that has recently resurfaced), Melania’s White House Christmas could be interpreted as a snowy and desolate manifestation of her own isolation, which begs the question: Is she trying to tell us something?
You have to see it for yourself, or you would never believe how nutty–speaking of mental institutions–today’s Democrats have become.
Vogue goes on to assemble some of the “best reactions to Melania’s White House creations.” All of which are sick. Here is just one example:
Reports: The U.S. Embassy Move to Jerusalem is Happening
ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS I THOUGHT ABOUT THE NIGHT WE WERE DELIVERED FROM TYRANNY WAS HOW IT LIFTED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHO SUFFERED UNDER THE DISDAIN FROM A PRESIDENT WHO HATED THEM JUST AS MUCH AS HE HATED WHITE AMERICANS
Israeli officials are reportedly expecting US President Donald Trump to make a landmark announcement in the coming days regarding the move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognizing the highly-sensitive holy city as Israel’s capital, according to a local TV report on Wednesday.
The report comes just a day after Trump’s vice-president Mike Pence stated that the President was “actively considering” how and when to move the US embassy.
Team Hillary Clinton cheers Matt Lauer’s firing, says he was mean to her
Another person whose interview with Trump was ridiculously soft and interview with Hillary was incredibly tough: Matt Lauer,” tweeted former Clinton aide Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress.
Lauer came under fire from Team Clinton after he repeatedly pressed the Democratic presidential nominee in a live candidate forum about her controversial emails sent as secretary of state through a private server.
His tactics were called sexist.
CNN’s Jim Acosta ROASTED for Fake ‘Fact Check’ About ‘Pocahontas’ Being a Racial Slur
CNN’s Jim Acosta never learns. Instead of reporting the facts, something Acosta’s network is challenged at doing, the “reporter,” tries to play ‘Mr. Moral Authority,’ and fails every single time.
After Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied the term ‘Pocahontas,’ used by the President in reference to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at an event with Navajo Code Talkers, Acosta ‘fact checked,’ that the term is in fact racist. Acosta provided no proof of a fact check, of course.
“WH press sec says “Pocahontas” is not a racial slur. (Fact check: it is.),” tweeted Acosta.
After Acosta’s non-existent fact check, he was roasted on Twitter.
