Midnight Musings

Looks like today is going to be a three-poster. There’s still plenty of interesting stuff from yesterday and it keeps coming. If I didn’t think it was worth your while to glance at it, I wouldn’t waste your time. I have too much respect for our readers and their time. The fact that I have plenty of it is a luxury very few people share.

John Lewis Cancels Trip to MS Because He Won’t Share a Stage With Trump

Rep. John Lewis told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution he is canceling is trip to the new Mississippi Civil Rights Museum because he doesn’t want to share a stage with President Trump. But the Georgia congressman said he would reconsider if the “hit man,” meaning Mr. Trump, decides not to attend.

Bombshell: Roy Moore Accuser Beverly Nelson Admits She Forged Yearbook

OOPS! IMAGINE THAT! NO WONDER “PUBLICITY WHORE” ALLRED WOULDN’T ALLOW ANYBODY TO EXAMINE THE BOOK

Beverly Young Nelson has finally admitted that she forged a portion of the infamous high school yearbook that she and attorney Gloria Allred used as proof of her accusations against U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.

And in yet another blow to the credibility of ABC News, the disgraced, left-wing network downplayed the bombshell by presenting this admission of forgery as adding “notes” to the inscription. Worse still, the reporter actually coaches Nelson, puts words in her mouth, downplay the enormous significance of her deceit.

TRUMP SLAMS LYING HACK GLORIA ALLRED: “Everytime You See Her You Know Something Is Going Wrong”

President Trump: “So did you see what happened today? Did you see the yearbook? Did you see that? There was a little mistake made. She started to write things in the yearbook. Oh, what are we going to do. Gloria Allred, every time you see her you know something is going wrong.”

Donald Trump Jr. Wins The Internet With Gloria Allred Kill Shot After Accuser Admits Roy Moore Signature Forgery
CNN published photos of the signature showing two different inks.

The signature says “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House.”

Strangely, “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy,” is written in black ink, while “Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House,” is in blue ink.

FLASHBACK: Obama Says Manufacturing Jobs Aren’t Coming Back – Then Trump Sets Record of 40,000 Manufacturing Jobs in One Month

“Well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s uh-uh no answer to it. He just says. ‘I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.”

Yesterday, ADP Services reported the largest number of new manufacturing jobs in history – 40,000!

Obama: Some jobs ‘are just not going to come back’


In a speech this week in Chicago Barack Obama took full credit for President Trump’s record economic numbers.

On Friday President Trump’s Director of the National Economic Council, Gary Cohn, was asked about Barack Obama’s comments from earlier this week on the Trump economy.
Gary Cohn laughed out loud.

Judge recuses in Michael Flynn case

The former Trump national security adviser will be sentenced by Clinton appointee Emmet Sullivan.
Judge Emmet Sullivan was randomly assigned to take over the case after Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself.

A court spokeswoman confirmed to POLITICO that the reassignment was due to Contreras’ recusal, but said the court generally does not disclose the reason that a judge begged off the case.

MY THEORY IS THAT CONTRERAS KNEW MUELLER WITHHELD EXCULPATORY EVIDENCE BEFORE HE PRESSURED KELLY INTO A PLEA DEAL. HE WOULD HAVE HAD TO DISCLOSE THAT OR FACE DISBARMENT.

THE MAINE PAIN DOES IT AGAIN.

Collins considers changing vote on tax bill over amendments
Collins added two amendments to the legislation that passed the Senate last week, one of which would allow taxpayers to deduct property taxes from their annual federal filings, restoring a provision of the House bill that the Senate took out.  Another provision added by Collins would lower the threshold for tax deductions for medical expenses.

Morning Joe jumps right to dementia over latest Trump video: ‘that speech, that impairment, is chilling’

DOCTOR JOE COMES UP WITH HIS OWN DIAGNOSIS.

On Thursday, the panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”suggested President Trump’s brief slurred words during his Wednesday speech on recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital are indicative of dementia.

[CtH: Let’s all remember how Obama mis-pronounced words that were written into his prepared speeches, m’kay?  And that time he banged his head on the door to Marine One?  Or that other time when he tried to shake hands with a Marine who was saluting him?  Oh, and definitely, let’s remember that wonderful video of him being locked out of his own office, when he was caught banging on the window trying to get someone to let him in.]

HERE IS DOCTOR PETE’S DIAGNOSIS OF MORNING JOKE’S CONDITION:

HYPOCRITES: Same Media Outlets Who Mocked Hillary Clinton Health Conspiracies Now Promoting Trump ‘Slurred Speech’ Conspiracies
Here’s CNN’s report:

Toward the end of the news conference, some on Twitter and Facebook noted that the President’s usual speech pattern changed and that he started to slur his words — and they speculated about what it could mean. … “People can slur their words for any number of reasons. It can be a sign of problems with a nervous system disorder like a brain tumor or a stroke.”

THERE’S A REASON I KEEP ALL THESE MEMES HANDY

Rachel Dolezal Is Trying To Commercialize Her Fake Blackness Just In Time For Christmas

Dolezal, a white woman claiming to be black, is now selling a 2018 calendar of herself on her personal website. Dolezal’s calendar, which has already sold out, features various pictures of her striking poses with a collection of inspirational quotes Dolezal came up with.

I’D HAVE SAVED THIS FOR ONE OF MY WEIRD, BIZARRE, AND TRULY STRANGE POSTS, BUT I DON’T KNOW WHEN I’M GOING TO POST ONE, WHAT WITH THE TARGET RICH ENVIRONMENT THESE DAYS.

Taxpayers Paid $220K to Settle Case Involving Rep. Alcee Hastings

The Treasury Department paid $220,000 in a previously undisclosed agreement to settle a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment that involved Florida Democrat Alcee L. Hastings, according to documents obtained by Roll Call.

Winsome Packer, a former staff member of a congressional commission that promotes international human rights, said in documents that the congressman touched her, made unwanted sexual advances, and threatened her job. At the time, Hastings was the chairman of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, where Packer worked.

YOU REMEMBER HIM…HE WAS THROWN OFF THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE FOR CORRUPTION.  WELL, HE MADE IT BACK THERE AND NOW SITS IN JUDGEMENT OF OTHERS.

Friday Leftovers

The original plan was to do this when I finished delivering my papers. Then I decide to take a nap. It was Friday, so breakfast with my uncles. Then I went for my first appointment to have cortisone injections in my back. I came home and the rest of the day was pretty well shot. However, there was a lot going on and I felt obligated to lay some of this down since I have a couple hours before I’m off again in 15 degree weather to keep people informed.

IS HE IN OR OUT?

I tuned in to C-Span Thursday to watch that flea-infested gutter rat Stuart Smalley resign from the Senate. I watched almost 5 minutes of it before my gag reflex betrayed me and I had to turn it off.

Then, being the petty little prick he is, he whined about Trump and Judge Moore. Then it dawned on me. He’s waiting to see if Moore wins next Tuesday. If he does he’ll probably un-resign and claim if Moore stays, he will too. Notice Conyers and Franken are the Democrats’ sacrificial lambs because both are extremely safe seats. How much more liberal can you get than Detroit?

Sen. Al Franken Will Resign ‘in the Coming Weeks’

“A couple months ago I felt that we had entered an important moment in the history of this country. We finally listened to women.”

“Then the conversation turned to me,” Franken added.

Mika Brzezinski Sets Internet On Fire With 5 Words After Franken’s Resignation

MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski reacted to Al Franken announcing his impending resignation with five words: “This does not feel right.”

Ready?’: Democratic senators and staffers shed tears during Al Franken’s resignation speech

Only one Republican sat in on Franken’s speech, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. The rest of the Republican side sat empty.

If you as a woman truly believe a man is a creepy serial sex assaulter of women, do you get all misty-eyed and line up to tightly hug him when he resigns from the Senate following your demand he do so in the face of numerous accusations of sexual assault? If you are a Democrat woman senator, the answer is ‘yes’, even though several of the allegations involved Franken groping and forcing kisses during hugs. Franken was also photographed assaulting a woman in her sleep.

In his speech, Franken name-checked former Sen. Paul Wellstone, the longtime Minnesota Democrat on three occasions. Franken famously defeated former Sen. Norm Coleman in 2009 by 312 votes — who Wellstone was set to face off against in 2002 until a plane crash took his life only eleven days before the election — giving Democrats the much-needed 60th vote for a brief period of time that allowed them to pass the Affordable Care Act.

REMEMBER THIS LITTLE SNIPPET? I DO.

THIS WAS WHEN ALL THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS WHO HAD COME TO SHOW THEIR RESPECT WERE ORDERED TO LEAVE, THEN CAME THE PEP RALLY.

If Moore wins and Franken un-resigns, will Senate Democrats back him up?
He was careful this morning not to admit to any wrongdoing, merely saying that he’d lost the confidence of his colleagues and therefore had to go. Imagine now that Moore wins and, as expected, McConnell’s caucus immediately starts hemming and hawing about whether he should be expelled.

Chris Matthews: ‘The Worst You Can Say About Democrats Is They’re Too Pure’

ABC’s Rick Klein: Franken didn’t show any contrition in resignation speech

With Al Franken out, Democrats hope to make Republicans answer for Roy Moore and Donald Trump

OK, WE GAVE UP TWO OF THE SCORE OF MISCREANTS IN OUR PARTY, SO GET RID OF ONE THAT IT’S NEVER BEEN PROVED HE DID ANYTHING WRONG. WE JUST DON’T WANT ANY OF THAT ‘GOD’ STUFF AROUND HERE.

If Moore, accused of preying on young girls, is elected, Democrats will hammer Republicans unceasingly. Even if he’s not, Democrats made clear their intent to raise anew the several allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Trump before the 2016 election in a bid to make Republicans answer on this politically super-charged issue.

[CtH: Every time this is mentioned, the Republican being targeted should recite the names of Clinton’s accusers and refuse to say anything else.]

CBS Mourns Franken Resignation: ‘The End to a Potentially Storied Career’
You know, Al Franken is one of very few Democrats in Congress who can truly claim to have had a nationwide progressive profile, even before he came to the Senate in 2009, because of his Air America radio show.  And that led to him having, you know, a true ability to raise money for other lawmakers.

Female lieutenant governor expected to replace Franken
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is expected to appoint his lieutenant governor and close ally, Tina Smith, to Al Franken’s seat, three people familiar with the Democratic governor’s thinking said.

But that appointment would be just the start of an upheaval in Minnesota. Part of the reason Smith could be heading to the Senate, the sources said, is that she has indicated no interest in running for Congress in the past and would not run for the remainder of Franken’s term, which expires in 2020, in a 2018 special election. That would clear the way for a wide open Democratic primary next year.

Civil War in Detroit’s Dirty Dynasty

John Conyers II is out. Long live John Conyers III.

After spending almost 60 years in Congress as a politician and a staffer, Rep. John Conyers II has to decide which of his many relatives to pass Michigan’s 13th congressional district to. It’s like King Lear, if Shakespeare’s fictional monarch had been forced to step down after groping a woman in church.

The 13th is a very nice district to inherit. Conyers has won it by 77%, 79% and 82%. Fidel Castro couldn’t ask for better elections. Whichever Conyers clan member gets it will be staying in Congress for 60 years.

And will inherit Rep. Conyers’ government Cadillac Escalade.
