Jones Wins! RINOS Rejoice!

from Drudge:

DEM WINS ALABAMA
WHITE HOUSE SHOCK
BANNON BUSTED

It cost the democrats and the McConnell mob $100 million and a non-stop 6-week assault by their media hitmen to keep just enough republicans at home to eke out a narrow victory. The commie prick will serve the next two years but in all likelihood will not be re-elected in a state like Alabama. The democrats couldn’t care less. They picked up an invaluable seat to encourage the mindless army of parasites who support them that they can wrest back the House next year.

The first item on the agenda? Of course: IMPEACH TRUMP!!

I still do not watch broadcast news but I’m sure there are back slaps all around at a smear campaign well done. Such is the state of politics today. The key for success seems to be to have a bevy of women come forward against every vulnerable republican male and accuse them of sexual misconduct. At least this takes away Franken’s excuse for not leaving the senate.

ALABAMA ELECTION RESULTS: Judge Roy Moore Against “Lynch Mob Media” …Update: DEMOCRAT JONES WINS ALABAMA

Democrats are excited that black turnout is at 30%.

REMEMBER THEY WERE OFFERING $1-$100 TO VOTE FOR JONES? HOW’D THAT WORK OUT?

GOPe Spent $500,000 to Defeat Roy Moore and Campaigns Against Him — Then Trashes Steve Bannon When He Loses

Republican elites spent at least $500,000 against Republican candidate Roy Moore in Alabama.

  • Anti-Trump presidential candidate Evan McMullin spent $500,000 on digital and TV ads that ask Alabama conservatives to reject Republican nominee Roy Moore’s Senate bid.
  • Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell told Roy Moore to step down.
  • Republican Senator Richard Shelby told CNN on Sunday that he would not vote for Judge Roy Moore.
  • Roy Moore lost tonight in Alabama to ultra-liberal Doug Jones by .7% in a special election with a very low turnout

These GOP elites must be wiped completely out of the Republican party. These are not honest people.  They do not give a rat’s ass about your well-being.

Republican Saboteurs Flip Seat to Dems

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/12/12/live-updates-alabama-senate-showdown/

CtH: This just makes me even more TRUMP than I was before!  And I didn’t even like him when I voted for him.  I’ve just been super impressed with what a great job he’s been doing.  Plus, I love his wife.

Alabama Senate Special Election – JONES wins

While this was a candidate specific loss, it certainly will be spun as part of a wave that started in Virginia and will be a precursor of the midterms. It also means that the Trump agenda is on the ropes, with just a single vote margin next year. Tax reform needs to pass this year (since Jones will not be seated until next term), or it may not get done. You probably can forget anything else big getting done before the midterms, not with McCain and Collins and a couple of others who barely vote with Trump.

EXPECT THIS KIND OF BULLSHIT FROM NOW UNTIL NOV. 2018:

Clinton celebrates Jones’ victory: ‘Onward!’

Hillary Clinton celebrated the victory of Alabama Senate candidate Doug Jones (D) on Tuesday, calling for Democrats to “compete everywhere.””Tonight, Alabama voters elected a senator who’ll make them proud,” Clinton tweeted. “And if Democrats can win in Alabama, we can — and must — compete everywhere. Onward!”

Cheers Can Be Heard on CNN as Dem Jones Takes the Lead in Alabama

In the early part of the 10:00 p.m. Eastern hour, and before the Alabama Senate race was called for Democrat Doug Jones, cheers could be heard on CNN’s live broadcast as Wolf Blitzer announced Jones had taken the lead.  “All of a sudden, Doug Jones is taking the lead.”

“Hale County just came in, which puts him back in the lead,” explained Inside Politics host John King as they stood in front of the map. And as they spoke an audible whoop from off-camera could be heard.

[CtH: CNN isn’t biased!  Just ask them!]

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2017/12/12/cheers-can-be-heard-cnn-dem-jones-takes-lead-alabama

THERE WILL BE HOURS AND HOURS OF COMMENTARY ABOUT THE REBUKE OF THE TRUMP AGENDA AND THE BRIGHTENING FUTURE FOR DEMOCRATS ALL DAY TODAY AND FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

I’ll be gone a large part of the day and we’re braving the hordes at the mall to get gift cards for our 11 and 16 year old granddaughters at…Victoria’s Secret.  YAAAA!!!!!!

After my blood pressure came down, DW said they have a line of things for younger girls called “Pink.” A call to my eldest confirmed this and said they LOVED Victoria’s Secret. I always viewed it like Larry The Cable guy does… like a grown man’s Chuck E. Cheese.

While we’re there we’ll stop at the food court. There’s a little place called the Thai Hut that serves Mango Chicken. Really yummy. She doesn’t know it yet, but I’ve put a little away and plan to stop by Zale’s Jewelers (hint: I don’t wear jewelry). It never hurts to put a little honey on the biscuit, know what I mean?

[CtH: Pete and Dearest are tied for the PoliNation Husband Award!  I’m getting a closet and a pedometer for Christmas.  I asked for the pedometer, cuz I’ve been getting strong enough lately that we have been able to take Daisey out on the Rail Trail!  Yay me!!  And I want to know how far I walk for my Rehab Stats Report I give my 2 doctors.  We’ve measured our street, so that’s easy, but the Rail Trails don’t have any mile markers.  The closet was a TOTAL SURPRISE!  He just up and cleaned it out and said I could have it!  He’s a pack rat, so this was a MAJOR thing for him.  God works in mysterious ways His wonders to behold!]


It’s going to be difficult going through this garbage for awhile, but I’ll do the best I can.

BABY PARTS: Two companies have admitted guilt for selling baby body parts in a $7.7 million settlement with the district attorney in Orange County, CA. In the agreement, DV Biologics LLC and DaVinci Biosciences LLC must cease all operations in California within 60 to 120 days and admit liability for violations of state and federal law prohibiting the sale or purchase of fetal tissue. This news comes just days after the Justice Department started an investigation into the trafficking of fetal body parts.

TAX CUTS: The Treasury Department says the GOP’s proposed tax plan “would pay for itself and more, actually boosting revenue by $300 billion over 10 years.” Treasury’s numbers differ from that of a congressional forecast by taking into account the potential for stronger economic growth.

HYPOCRITE: New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand tooted, “We won’t be silenced”, about Trump’s alleged history of sexual abuse. Ben Shapiro and others pointed out that she had not only been silent for years about Bill Clinton, while she benefited from her association with the Clinton family, but had literally fawned over Slick Willy in public.

SPACE: Remember when Obama told NASA to focus on making Muslims feel good about their contributions to science while proving climate change would kill us all?

Fascism is a LEFT wing phenomenon

I read somewhere or other that the term “right wing” for fascists originated in the British government, where the communists were seated on the far left while their mortal enemies, the fascists, were seated as far away from them as possible, on the far right, so as to minimize the likelihood of brawling.

But fascism truly belongs to the big government left side of the political spectrum, where top down regulations trump individual freedoms. It was invented by an Italian and was first put into practice in Italy. In brief, it is simply socialism with a national identity.

Fascism bears no resemblance to right-wing conservatism, where grass roots responsibility and individual freedoms come first and government power is carefully limited.

Dinesh D’Souza explains.

Melania visits sick kids for Christmas

This FLOTUS seems to have a true heart for suffering children. It seems like every time she travels, I see a story about how she visited the pediatric ward of a local hospital.

This holiday season, she visited with patients and staff at Children’s National hospital in the nation’s capital. Then-FLOTUS Bess Truman began the now-traditional practice more than 60 years ago.

2016_12 FLOTUS at Children's National hospital

Mrs. Trump answered questions from the kids and read The Polar Express to them.

  • Her favorite Christmas song is “O Holy Night.”
  • Her favorite family Christmas tradition is eating dinner on Christmas Eve before they attend midnight Mass or worship services on Christmas Day, followed by another family dinner. “On the 25th, Santa comes. We open the presents and spend time together.”
  • Her favorite thing to eat for Christmas dinner is “healthy food. You feel very good after. Not too much eating,” she said. “The most important part is to spend time with the family.”
  • Her dream Christmas destination would be to “spend my holidays on a deserted island, tropical island with my family,” she said.

It was not Mrs. Trump’s first visit to Children National. She visited earlier in the year to help prepare a “healing garden” for patients that she helped dedicate on a follow-up visit.

Sexual Revolution Working Out Great, Reports Nation Full of Perverts

From The Babylon Bee.

U.S.—The aftermath of the sexual revolution is working out just splendidly, reported a nation filled with perverts, pedophiles, and sexual predators Friday afternoon.

The country currently reaping the consequences of decades of declining sexual morals reported it would do it all over again in a heartbeat, further stating that it was “really proud” of the progress it had made over the past fifty years. When asked about the numerous scandals, controversies, and painful repercussions of the sexual revolution coming to light in recent months, nearly every person in the nation confirmed it was “feeling great” about the sexual revolution and its insidious consequences.

“This is fine—totally fine,” one political commentator on NBC filling in for Matt Lauer said. “I think the sexual revolution is working out just great, and I’m proud to live in the US where we’re uninhibited by outdated ideas about human relationships, like monogamy and faithfulness.”

According to the country with dozens of famous celebrities, television pundits, and politicians currently embroiled in sexual scandals, the sexual revolution was a necessary period that allowed the nation to throw off the outdated, restricted shackles of religion and biblical morality.

“I really pity all those backward parts of the world that haven’t had the privilege of experiencing their own sexual revolution,” one politician said as he checked Twitter to see if his own personal indiscretions had been revealed yet. “One day, they’ll be enlightened too.”

Obama still doesn’t get it – optimism, not whining, grows an economy

IT’S SIMPLE. HE HAS NO CLUE HOW AN ECONOMY WORKS AND COULDN’T CARE LESS. HIS FOCUS WAS ON SHOVING SOCIALISM AND RACIAL HATRED DOWN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE’S THROATS. HE REVELED IN THE MISERY HE CAUSED.

What Obama never understood is that there is a close and important correlation between optimism and growth. Optimistic consumers spend money. Optimistic investors buy stocks. Most important, business leaders who view the future positively will invest in growth.

The optimism unleashed on November 8, 2016, was astonishing. The very next month, consumer confidence soared to a 15-year high, according to the Conference Board, “well ahead of analysts’ expectations.” To be precise, the index rose to 107.1 from 98.6; economic gurus were forecasting 101.5. It wasn’t the “current conditions” survey that popped, but rather the “future” outlook that jumped to the highest level since 2003.

Trump Blames NYC Terror Attack On Immigration Policies

Today’s attempted mass murder attack in New York City—the second terror attack in New York in the last two months—once again highlights the urgent need for Congress to enact legislative reforms to protect the American people,” Trump said in a statement.
The alleged terrorist Akayed Ullah, 27, entered the U.S. in 2011 through extended family chain migration. The terror attack left four, including Ullah, injured.

Sarah Sanders Gets Into It With CNN Over Fake News Question: ‘I’m Not Finished!’

I ALWAYS CONSIDERED THE LATE TONY SNOW AS THE BEST PRESS SECRETARY I EVER SAW. BUT SARAH SANDERS SURE IMPRESSES ME. FOR ALL THE BITCHING IN THE MEDIA ABOUT BULLYING, THEY ARE BY FAR THE RUDEST AND MOST ILL-MANNERED EVER TO CRAP ON THE PROFESSION. SHE GIVES AS GOOD AS AND BETTER THAN SHE GETS. YOU GOTTA LIKE THAT.

“There’s a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposely misleading the American people. Something that happens regularly. You cannot say that it is an honest mistake when you are purposely putting out information that you know to be false or when you’re taking information that has not been validated, hasn’t been offered with any credibility and continually denied by a number of people including people with direct knowledge of an instance. I am speaking about the number of reports over the last couple weeks. I am stating that there should be a certain level of responsibility in that process.”

Dem Rep. Bobby Rush Sued for $1 Million to Collect Unpaid Loan for Church He Founded

Wellness center connected to church has received $17 million in gov’t grants

FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT FROM ILLINOIS, BOBBY RUSH IS A FORMER BLACK PANTHER WHO IS JUST A BIG A CROOK AS THE REST OF THEM. A YOUNG COMMUNITY ORGANIZER NAMED BARACK OBAMA RAN AGAINST HIM IN 1990. HE WAS DEFEATED SOUNDLY BECAUSE HE WASN’T BLACK ENOUGH FOR CHICAGO’S SOUTH SIDE.

Democratic representative Bobby Rush is being sued for $1 million after failing to make payments on a loan he received for a church he founded in his home district in Illinois.
A wellness center linked to the church has also collected more than $2.6 million in taxpayer-funded government grants in 2017 and more than $17 million in grants since 2008, according to records.

Now, the loan Rush secured has gone delinquent, and the creditor is seeking to recoup the money through the Cook County court system. A $1.1 million judgment was issued against Rush for $542,000 in unpaid principal, $441,000 in interest, and nearly $50,000 in attorney fees.

Jerry Brown: ‘I Don’t Think President Trump Has a Fear of the Lord’
California Governor Jerry Brown went Biblical on Sunday evening, telling CBS News’ 60 Minutes that President Donald Trump does not fear God because he does not believe in climate change.

Ms. Lerner and her former chief lieutenant, Holly Paz, have said they faced death threats in the past, and say they fear any more attention to their behavior would spur a new round of harassment.

They said there’s “exceedingly low” public interest in having their depositions released, and they said tea party groups are pushing for disclosure out of “spite.”

President Donald Trump is lashing out at Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has called on him to resign over allegations of sexual misconduct.

Trump says Gillibrand “would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them).”

We’ll teach you not to wish Jake Tapper a “Merry Christmas”

Horror of horrors, when the interview concluded, Ambassador Haley said, “Merry Christmas” to Tapper. Why is that an issue? Because Jake Tapper is Jewish. Despite the fact that this goes on between people of all faiths (or none) all over the country every day at this time of year, you just knew somebody would jump on it.

At the conclusion of his next interview with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Tapper demonstrated how to acknowledge someone of the Jewish faith.

“If I don’t see you before Tuesday,” Tapper told Schiff, “Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year’s as well.”

“Same to you, sir,” Schiff agreed.

Some Warm Feelings Just for You

All you’ll hear about today is the showdown in Alabama. All the news crews are down there, ready to preen before the camera and try to act like it’s simply reportage and not the culmination of a six week jihad to ruin a Republican senate candidate. Plenty of time for that. Consider this a sort of palate cleanser for the hard news yet to come.

This is the time of year where acts of love and compassion are most keenly felt. Like the characters in Scrooge who call on the old miser to solicit funds to buy some food and warmth for the truly needy, our own souls must be replenished to remind us that we are made by God and life is a temporary condition. Through the daily assault on our faith, our morals, and our way of life, we need reminders from time to time that God has got this. Trust in Him and we’ll be OK. This Christmas is especially joyful because Israel has a powerful new ally.

I POST THIS EVERY YEAR. I NEVER GET TIRED OF IT. HOPE I NEVER WILL.

[CtH: Beautiful message, Pete. Thank you!]

Wreaths Across America caravan begins annual journey from Maine to Arlington

The Wreaths Across America caravan departed Sunday from Columbia Falls, where the wreaths were made. It’ll travel through Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Washington D.C., before arriving in a week in Arlington, Virginia.

Medal of Honor recipient Roger Donlon and his wife Norma, seen here at a Capitol Hill reception in 2007, are the grand marshals for this year’s Wreaths Across America caravan.

The tradition began when Maine wreath maker Morrill Worcester donated 5,000 wreaths to Arlington Cemetery. This year, there will be more than 200,000 of them placed at Arlington alone. A total of 1.2 million wreaths will be placed on markers across the country in 1,238 locations.

World War II Mansfield veteran gets a boost from firefighters

WANNA SEE A REAL BADASS?

Decorated World War II veteran Walter Gilbert and his wife Mary are both 95 and still manage to live in their own home. But they have some mobility issues, including difficulty with stairs, such as the ones from their home.

About a half-dozen firefighters left their regular shift Friday morning and headed over to the couple’s West Street home to install a ramp Veterans Agent Michael Raymond was able to get for the Gilberts.

One of the reasons Gilbert needs the ramp is because of injuries to his legs he suffered in the war.

Terry said he sat down and talked to Gilbert, learning he endured about 180 days of combat, and was wounded twice. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge where he took shrapnel.

Despite his service to our country and what he went through, Gilbert is humble and gracious for the support from the town.

When told he deserved it after his service he said, “Well I don’t know about that.”
Terry advises area residents to contact their community’s veterans agents to see what is needed

The ring survived and was discovered amongst the shattered plane in New Guinea 40 years ago.  It was returned recently to Greebull’s wife who hasn’t forgotten her love for him–not at all.

A little help here? Baby signs distress signal from mall Santa’s lap

THIS IS ADORABLE

Kerry Spencer taught both of her children to sign using American Sign Language before they could speak because she found it useful to be able to communicate with them when they were babies.

Samuel was just one year old when he used his baby version of ASL to sign “help” to his mom while the photographer at the Provo Town Center Mall in Provo, Utah, snapped his picture. “I was standing to the side when the pic was taken and actually didn’t see that he was signing for help until I saw the photo,” his mom told TODAY Parents.

Bucking a trend, these churches figured out how to bring millennials back to worship

Pastors Kyle Turner, 36, and wife Liz, 37, say they had “discerned a call” to build a church for younger people when they moved to Kansas City from Oklahoma in 2009.
Today, The Cause has its own digs, a space at 4646 Belleview Ave. that feels more like a tech start-up than a place of worship. To the right of the entrance is a small work space and complimentary coffee bar. To the left, “Jesus Over Everything” beams in an aqua neon light. In one corner is “The Welcome Spot,” a teal room where prospective members can learn more about the church. Across from there is the sanctuary, with rows of chairs facing a stage festooned with a neon-beamed backdrop.


THE METHODS OF PREACHING MATTER FAR LESS THAN GUIDING YOUNG PEOPLE TO GOD’S MERCY AND OUR REDEMPTION THROUGH THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

Out of Wedlock Birth Rates High in America; End of Shotgun Weddings Partially to Blame

IN FULL DISCLOSURE, I MUST PLEAD GUILTY. MY FIRST WIFE WAS PREGNANT WITH RJ’s MOM WHEN WE WERE MARRIED.  THERE WAS NO QUESTION … YOU JUST DIDN’T WALK AWAY. YOU TOOK RESPONSIBILITY.

The proportion of mothers who are unmarried is at 40 percent, up from five percent in 1960; two-thirds of first births to women under 30 are to unwed women. Determining why out-of-wedlock pregnancy and birth has spiked is the subject of a new report, released Monday, from the Social Capital Project.

Between the early 1950s and the late 2000s, the proportion of births from unwed pregnancies increased from 10 to almost 50 percent. Similarly, the rate of births to previously unwed couples who married after conception but before birth was 43 percent in the early 1960s; it dropped steadily to nine percent in the late 2000s.

The other most significant factor is the vanishing of the so-called “shotgun marriage,” the sequence of events where a woman becomes pregnant, and then she and the father of the child are socially pressured into tying the knot.

Nativity scene with Jesus in migrant boat is not going over well

A Catholic bishop condemned a nativity scene that depicts Mary holding Jesus in a rubber boat to symbolize the plight of migrants crossing the Mediterranean.

“I’m not saying a crib cannot be enriched by other elements, and certainly, a boat is a symbol that reminds us of the need for hospitality, but don’t forget that Jesus is the savior of all problems, not just one,” Vecchi said, according to International Business Times.

Our World: Trump’s great and ingenious gifts

Turning his back on the legacy of president Barack Obama, Trump beats a new path in American-Israeli relations.

With his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on Wednesday, US President Donald Trump gave a Hanukkah gift to the Jewish people. But he also gave a Christmas gift to the American people.

Trump’s gift to Israel is not merely that 68 years after Israel declared Jerusalem its capital, the US finally recognized Israel’s capital.

To understand why it was both courageous and wise, consider the political, institutional and geopolitical contexts in which Trump acted.

Politically, Trump made his declaration in a poisonous political environment at home.
The Democrats responded to Trump’s victory last year over Hillary Clinton by seeking to delegitimize his victory. To this end, they chose to oppose everything that he says and does.

84-Year-Old Korean War vet kills one home intruder in point-blank shot, sends second one running

THIS WAR HORSE IS OLD SCHOOL….TRY TO ROB ME, I’LL INTRODUCE YOU TO GOD… PERSONALLY.

An 84-year-old Korean War veteran killed a home intruder Friday with a single shot right to the chest, and he’s crediting God with his success.  While Lutz is somewhat sore from the struggle, he has escaped without any real injuries and credits his success to his Christian faith.

“I’ve never been afraid in my life,” Lutz said. “God has always been with me, and I’m a hard believer in God and Jesus Christ, and God was with me tonight.”

Lutz is not facing any charges for his act of home self-defense.
