It has snowed every day since Sunday. It’s supposed to stop some time today and start again Thursday night and be non-stop until sometime Saturday. We’ve only gotten about 7″ so far, but may be looking at more than a foot before it’s done. I made a living driving a truck along rural roads for decades, but now that I’m retired I get somewhat stressed out by adverse weather conditions.
Just a bunch of unrelated stuff which may or may not interest you.
Mississippi House Approves Earliest Abortion Ban at 15 Weeks
On Friday, lawmakers in the state House passed HB 1510, by a vote of 79-31, with some Democrats joining in with Republicans to approve it.
According to the Associated Press, Rep. Becky Currie, the bill’s sponsor, said about the 15-week cut-off for abortion, “At that time, it’s time to decide whether you’re going to carry this child or not.”
House Judiciary B Committee Chairman Andy Gipson (R) said the bill is just as much about protecting women as babies.
“Women deserve real health care, not some fake health care that involves the destruction of human life and a woman’s health,” he said.
Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”
In texts previously revealed, Strzok and Page have shown their disdain for Republicans in general, as well as Trump, calling him a “f—ing idiot,” among other insults.
Among the newly disclosed texts, Strzok also calls Virginians who voted against then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife for a state Senate seat “ignorant hillbillys.”
DIANNY HAS AN INTERESTING POINT: All roads lead to Obama
Trust me. Barack Obama, Loretta Lynch, the Democrat Party leadership — these people do not like Hillary Clinton.
In fact, I’d venture to say they despise her. And her husband. And her buck-toothed bitch of a daughter.
Oh, and her little dog too!
They’re not protecting Hillary. As far as they’re concerned, Hillary can rot in prison.
No. They wouldn’t go to all this trouble to utterly corrupt our entire criminal justice system just for one old, decrepit, corrupt hag they hate with a passion.
You don’t go to these lengths to protect someone like that.
This isn’t about protecting Hillary. This is about protecting Barack Hussein Obama.
You know it. I know it.
Julián Castro tells NBC he has ‘every interest in running’ for president in 2020
Former Housing and Urban Development secretary and San Antonio mayor Julián Castro told NBC News he has “every interest in running” for president come 2020.
Further fanning rumors is his planned speech at the New Hampshire Young Democrats Granite Slate Awards later this month, where he is being touted as “a national rising star of the Democratic Party.”

Eric Holder eyes 2020 presidential bid
HE CERTAINLY FITS THE DEMOCRAT GUIDELINES FOR A CANDIDATE
“I think I’ll make a decision by the end of the year about whether or not there is another chapter in my government service,” he said.
Also asked if he planned a career in politics, he said again, “I’ll see.”
From out of the slime, Sidney Blumenthal rears his head again
BLUMENTHAL IS ONE OF THE MOST VILE, DESPICABLE VERMIN TO EVER SLITHER OUT OF THE D.C. SLIME PIT.
When the question of who cooked up the gross, repulsive contents of the Steele Dossier is asked, is anyone surprised the name of Hillary Clinton’s consigliere, Sid Blumenthal, comes up?
Blumenthal has that kind of mind, and sure enough we read of him again. This time, there’s a new memo, created by Senate Republicans Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham about the creation of the Steele dossier, and apparently one of the contributors was Sid Blumenthal.
Blumenthal, you recall, was an assistant senior advisor to President Clinton from 1997 to 2001, the prime Clinton scandal years, following a career as a writer for the New Yorker.
He was a prime witness in the grand jury testimonies over the Monica Lewinsky scandal and famous for leaking creepy stories about the Ken Starr special prosecutor investigation to the press, and came to be known as a man who would do anything for the Clintons.
He got a reputation so slimey that even Rahm Emmanuel, who became President Obama’s chief of staff, wouldn’t allow him near the Obama White House.
Black Lives Matter leader shot dead
AT LEAST IT WASN’T A COP.
Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, who went by Muhiyidin d’Baha, was found dead Tuesday morning after being shot in the thigh while riding his bicycle, the Advocate reported.

Adam Schiff sent his staff to try and collect ‘classified materials for the FBI’ after Russian pranksters told him Putin had NAKED blackmail pictures of Trump
DEMOCRATS WILL JUMP AT ANYTHING TO GET TRUMP.
Adam Schiff, the ranking Democratic member of the House Intel Committee was recorded speaking to Russian pranksters who spun elaborate ‘kompromat’ tale.
He told Vocan and Lexus, two radio pranksters who have also hit Nikki Haley, that he would pass their claims to the FBI in a call made last year.
The duo posed as a fake Ukrainian politician to say Trump had sex with Russian glamour model Olga Buzova after a Miss Universe pageant in 2013.
In the call they said Putin had been passed naked pictures of Trump and now-president had used secret codes for talks with Russians.
Duo gave emails to DailyMail.com which showed Schiff’s staff trying to arrange to collect ‘classified’ documents from Ukraine’s embassy in D.C.
Schiff’s office claimed he was not fooled by the call and reported it to ‘authorities’ but did not explain why his staff kept up correspondence
Elaborate story: The two claimed that Trump had an affair with Russian glamour model Olga Buzova after a Miss Universe pageant in 2013 – and that naked pictures of him were passed to Vladimir Putin by his ‘goddaughter’ Ksenia Sobchak.
Russian pranksters Vladimir ‘Vovan’ Kuznetsov, 30, and Alexei ‘Lexus’ Stolyarov, 28, called Schiff and persuaded him to stay on the call for seven minutes as they outlined their fake claim.
Hakeem Jeffries to Trump: ‘How dare you lecture us about treason’
Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries slammed President Trump for suggesting it was treasonous for Democrats not to applaud during his State of the Union and questioned whether the president and his officials have themselves engaged in treasonous acts.
“Treason is not a laughing matter,” Jeffries, of New York, said during a speech on the House floor Tuesday. “It is a serious crime embedded in the Constitution, punishable by death. But since your commander in chief chose to raise it at a political rally, let’s have a discussion about treason.”
RNC TROLLS Democrats In New Ad: ‘What Do You Stand For?’
Maxine Waters Ready for Breitbart Pushback While Leading Trump Impeachment Drive
THIS IS ALL A SHOW FOR HER 200K HOMIES IN WATTS.
According to Elle’s puff piece, Waters “touched on the attacks that the Republican party and, in particular, Breitbart have launched against her—she noted that she’s frequently referred to as Mad Max.”
“When you make a decision, and you know that decision is controversial, you know that you’re going be up against people who are going to fire back at you,” she reportedly said. “I’m prepared to suffer the consequences of my actions, and I don’t fall backwards into this stuff. And so, the consequences will be there, but I’m prepared to deal with that.”
[CtH: “Mad Max” seems mild compared to the things she’s said about our president.]
Taking back the House will be harder than Democrats think
They are on track to have a record number of candidates running, led by a surge of women and veterans. According to the latest compilation by the Campaign Finance Institute, nearly 60 percent of Republican-held districts have a Democratic challenger who has raised at least $50,000; two years ago, fewer than 20 percent had reached that threshold by this point in the cycle.
All of that is a good thing for any party. Except when it leads to large, messy primaries.
In suburban Virginia, for instance, Democrats worked hard to recruit state Sen. Jennifer T. Wexton (Loudoun), a former prosecutor with deep roots in the district, to take on Rep. Barbara Comstock, one of the most vulnerable Republicans in the country.
