Information Overload

When you bookmark a lot of links without posting it’s kind of like getting constipated. Sooner or later it has to be purged.
So much for tasteful language for the day.
This is a scattershot post, wandering all over, hoping to find something anybody may be interested in. (It sure as hell ain’t me.)

Schumer slammed for citing skin color in vote against white judicial nominee
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer faced a stern rebuke from congressional colleagues for citing skin color in voting against a white federal judge nominee earlier this week.
Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the Senate floor Wednesday that the nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum, a white lawyer who is a partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough in Greenville, S.C., “speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary.”

San Diego State University offering course called ‘Trump: Impeachment, Removal, or Conviction?’
A description of the course says the focus will be on the two constitutional grounds for removing a president from office: “Impeachment and removal (25th Amendment),” KUSI News reported.
It will include lessons on possible charges of the independent counsel and the powers of the president. Students in the class will also learn about “presidential immunity from indictment, and grounds for impeachment, removal, or indictment.”

Texans break early voting record after more Dems get involved
I ALLUDED TO THIS IN THE PREVIOUS POST
Early voting in Texas’ largest 15 counties has hit an all-time high for a non-presidential election year ahead of congressional primaries in the state on Tuesday.
According to data posted on Saturday by the Texas secretary of state’s office, 885,574 Texans voted in the 11 days of early voting that ended Friday, the Austin American-Statesman reported.
That figure far surpasses the 592,153 Texans who voted early in 2014.
Early voting among Democrats surged this year, the Statesman reported. 465,245 Democrats cast their ballots early, compared to 420,329 Republicans. That represents a significant change from 2014, when only 226,730 Democrats voted early, compared to 65,423 Republicans.

Statue of Marion Barry, controversial former mayor, unveiled in Washington
THE INSCRIPTION SHOULD READ: “THE BITCH SET ME UP!”
To some in Washington, D.C., he was a “living legend” who advocated for the city’s poor. To others he was a controversial figure remembered for being re-elected mayor despite serving a prison sentence for possession of crack cocaine.
The move to honor Barry, who died at age 78 in 2014, may seem mystifying to non-Washingtonians. But among Barry’s supporters, the statue is an appropriate tribute to a legitimate D.C. icon — a man so popular and influential that he walked out of federal prison and immediately began winning elections again with one of the most improbable comebacks in American political history.

How A Pathetic Republican Party Is Allowing ‘The Resistance’ To Run The Score — And The GovernmentSenate Republicans are heading toward midterm elections with control of their chamber and the biggest advantage any majority party has had since 1790. Yet every week, the Democrats are allowed to work just 2.5 days before returning home to duke it out with their Republican challengers. That is, Mitch McConnell is allowing Democrats to hit the campaign trail hard while obstructing 139 of the president’s nominees
Executive governance is out of style. On Friday, while 26 Senate Democrats up for re-election went home to their states or elsewhere to speak and raise money with which to batter Republicans in November, 139 of the White House’s nominees languished in positions from undersecretary for arms control and international security affairs to director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center

GOP Rep: POTUS and His Family Are Being Put Through Hell For Winning an Election – There’s No Evidence They Committed Any Crime
Earlier this week, GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin sent a letter to AWOL Attorney General Jeff Sessions urging him to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate FISA abuses and how/why Hillary’s probe ended and Trump’s Russia probe began.
Zeldin’s letter came after Sessions told reporters he would have IG Horowitz investigate the FISA abuses. We need a special counsel; the Inspector General does not have prosecutorial power.
At the time of this publication, thirteen GOP Reps. have signed Zeldin’s letter.
On Sunday, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) said from his Twitter account, “.@realDonaldTrump & family being investigated for winning election w/no evidence they committed any crime to win the election. Sick, crazy & wrong!”

Chicago community organizer blasts Obama: ‘He forgot the community got him where he is’
THEY DON’T REALIZE OBAMA HAS ALWAYS PLAYED THEM FOR THE USEFUL IDIOTS THEY ARE. EXCEPT FOR VALERIE JARRETT, OBAMA HAS TURNED HIS BACK ON EVERYONE WHO SACRIFICED TO HELP HIM GET AHEAD.
“The library is a great idea, but what about a community benefits agreement?” Taylor asked, referring to a contract between a developer and community organizations that requires investments in, or hiring from, a neighborhood where a project is built. “The first time investment comes to black communities, the first to get kicked out is low-income and working-class people. Why wouldn’t you sign a CBA to protect us?”

The Woman in the High Castle
WE DIDN’T DODGE A BULLET, WE DODGED AN ICBM

In a dystopian fantasy in The New York Times at the end of the year, the columnist Bret Stephens reminded us of the horror that might have been:
Tax cuts. Deregulation. More for the military; less for the United Nations. The Islamic State crushed in its heartland. Assad hit with cruise missiles. Troops to Afghanistan. Arms for Ukraine. A tougher approach to North Korea. Jerusalem recognized as Israel’s capital. The Iran deal decertified. Title IX kangaroo courts on campus condemned. Yes to Keystone. No to Paris. Wall Street roaring and consumer confidence high.
And, of course, Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court.
Thank God, as Stephens himself so forcefully predicted, Donald Trump was crushed in the November 2016 election and the nation was spared those and other right-wing depredations.
Instead, Hillary Rodham Clinton, in the landslide that everyone who was anyone predicted, was elected the 45th president of the United States and lost no time in fulfilling her campaign promises—and even going beyond what she had promised in many areas. […]
“Hate speech is not free speech,” Clinton argued in a rousing Oval Office speech, which is widely credited with inaugurating the lawsuit now before the Supreme Court to update the outmoded provisions of the First Amendment for the 21st Century. “Thomas Jefferson could not have foreseen Fox News, Breitbart, or Rush Limbaugh,” Clinton said, “and it’s pretty clear that our Founding Fathers and Mothers would not have countenanced the hurtful lies masquerading as news that such divisive outlets foster.”

Tweet Of The Day…

Maxine Waters Promises Slavery Reparations For Blacks If Dems Take House In Midterm Elections
Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters said during an event in Selma, Alabama on Saturday that she would “be happy” to secure financial reparations for black Americans.
Waters said as long as Democrats win back the House in 2020 and are able to get a president who is friendly to their agenda, it would be “wonderful” to get reparations.
“I’d be happy to do that. That’s no problem,” Waters said when an event attendee pressed her to support reparations.

CNN’s Acosta Complains: ‘This Is the Third Briefing You’ve Not Taken a Question from CNN

YOU’D THINK AFTER A WHILE THEY’D GET THE HINT
Monday at the end of the White House press briefing, CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta complained to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that she has not taken a question from CNN recently.
As Sanders was leaving the press room Acosta said, “Sarah, this is the third briefing you’ve not taken a question from CNN. Do you expect the Justice Department to enforce all subpoenas, Sarah?”

Florida Senate passes bill to put restrictions on gun sales
THERE WILL BE AN ALL-OUT ATTEMPT AT GUN CONFISCATION, WHICH WILL LEAD TO CIVIL UNREST AND GEORGE SOROS WILL MAKE BILLIONS OFF THE CARNAGE
The 20-18 vote came after three hours of often emotional debate. Support and opposition crossed party lines, and it was clear many of those who voted for the bill weren’t entirely happy with it.
“Do I think this bill goes far enough? No! No, I don’t!” said Democratic Sen. Lauren Book, who tearfully described visiting Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after 17 people were fatally shot on Valentine’s Day.

Christian Bridal Shop Closes Down Over Fear of LGBT Law After Facing Death Threats
A Christian bridal shop in Pennsylvania that has faced death threats will shut its doors permanently due to the strong likelihood that a local town council will pass a law banning discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.
W.W. Bridal in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, which made headlines in 2014 and again in 2017 because of the Christian owners’ refusal to sell wedding dresses to same-sex couples, has announced that it will close down officially on March 30.

Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran Announces Resignation, Will Depart April 1
THIS WALKING CADAVER WOULD NEVER BEEN RE-ELECTED IN THE FIRST PLACE, BUT FOR THE TAMPERING BY McCONNELL BUYING VOTES TO HELP HIM DEFEAT CHRIS McDANIEL
While he survived a brutal and controversial Senate primary in 2014, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, citing his failing health, is resigning effective April 1. A special election will be held to finish the remainder of his term that ends in 2020. If no one gets above 50 percent, a runoff will be held. For now, Gov. Phil Bryant will appoint an interim senator to fill the vacancy until the election. Cochran’s colleague, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MI), is up for re-election this year and is facing a challenge by state Sen. Chris McDaniel. McDaniel challenged Cochran in 2014

Mike Espy to run for Thad Cochran’s Senate seat
Espy became Assistant State Attorney General from 1984 to 1985, when he was elected as a Democrat to the 100th Congress in 1986 from Mississippi’s 2nd congressional district.
He defeated two-term Republican Webb Franklin to become the first African-American to represent Mississippi at the federal level since Reconstruction.
He was reelected three times.
Just 20 days after taking office for his fourth term, Espy resigned after being appointed Secretary of Agriculture in the Cabinet of President Bill Clinton. He served as Secretary of Agriculture in 1993–94.

The Silicon Valley elite’s latest status symbol: Chickens
Their pampered birds wear diapers and have personal chefs — but lay the finest eggs tech money can buy
AS AN OLD FARM BOY, I AM VERY WELL AWARE OF THE NUANCES OF THE RAISING OF POULTRY.
I JUST HAD TO POST THIS TO SHOW YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE ABOUT HOW LOONEY CALIFORNY HAS BECOME.
In America’s rural and working-class areas, keeping chickens has long been a thrifty way to provide fresh eggs. In recent years, the practice has emerged as an unlikely badge of urban modishness. But in the Bay Area — where the nation’s preeminent local food movement overlaps with the nation’s tech elite — egg-laying chickens are now a trendy, eco-conscious humblebrag on par with driving a Tesla.
In true Silicon Valley fashion, chicken owners approach their birds as any savvy venture capitalist might: By throwing lots of money at a promising flock (spending as much as $20,000 for high-tech coops). By charting their productivity (number and color of eggs). And by finding new ways to optimize their birds’ happiness — as well as their own.
They are selecting for desirable personality traits (such as being affectionate and calm — the lap chickens that are gentle enough for a child to cuddle), rarity, beauty and the ability to produce highly coveted, colored eggs.
All of it happens in cutting-edge coops, with exorbitant veterinarian bills and a steady diet of organic salmon, watermelon and steak.

Republicans Better Wake Up

This may turn out to be a rather lengthy rant. It’s happened before.

A billionaire former reality show host and political neophyte sent shock waves all over the world when he defeated the most corrupt, greedy, ruthless congenital liar ever to run for the presidency. I doubted his chances of even winning the nomination, but came to realize that he was the only man who could stop the pre-ordained coronation of the Beast of Benghazi. He’s done pretty well, especially with his nomination to SCOTUS of Neil Grouch. He totally played the Democrats on DACA, which expired yesterday, and his tax cuts have kick-started the economy.

Maybe we’ve taken too much for granted, controlling all three branches of government. Not enough of us realize the white-hot rage and anger of the Left after seeing their dream of a totalitarian power vaporized. They have not taken it well. With help from people like George Soros, Tom Steyer, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet, they have mobilized voter turnout to flip 38 straight state House and Senate seats. The media has committed every atrocity possible against the president. The Democrats count on a raging electorate with the promise of impeaching Trump the day they get the majority, which they think is a foregone conclusion.
After a good start, Trump is reverting to the way he was in the past. He’s always been in favor of trade tariffs, this time on steel and aluminum imports. W tried it, but after 13 months and more than 200,000 jobs lost, he had to rescind them. Trump’s tax cuts have spurred the economy and brought a lot of revenue that was parked offshore back home. Who knows how many will stay here and how many more will be forced to relocate.
He’s also opted for the Democrat plan for gun control, taking the guns first and passing laws later. He totally rejected Steve Scalise, the congressman who was almost killed, who offered an amendment for national reciprocity for CCW carriers.

I’ve been meaning to comment on this for some time:

It would be almost unthinkable that police officers in Parkland would be ordered to stand down and “surround” the school until the cries of the dead and dying stopped. But this is how communism operates. Those 17 innocents were sacrificed to make a demonic push for gun confiscation. This may have been unthinkable at one time, but we’ve seen the Americans left to die by Obama and Clinton so as not to have to answer questions before a presidential election. Obama also ignored the pleas of the Gulf Coast governors for permission to try to stop the BP oil spill from making landfall. He waited until it came ashore, destroying thousands of small businesses and putting tens of thousands of people out of work, just so he could use it as an excuse to put a moratorium on oil exploration. What did he care? Most of them didn’t vote for him anyway.

If we don’t wake up we’re going to find ourselves staring as something akin to a toddler with a machine gun as the Democrats, when they get the power, will stop at nothing to stop everything we’ve managed to accomplish to this point.

Broward County Deputies Told to Form Perimeter Around School Instead of Confronting Shooter
MAY THE GHOSTS OF THOSE BUTCHERED HAUNT THIS ASSHOLE FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.

The order came from Capt. Jan Jordan.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel had said publicly that active-shooter training instructs officers to immediately confront the shooter or shooters. Forming a perimeter is secondary.

The documents show the shooting lasted approximately 6 minutes and was likely over by the time officers arrived on the scene. In a press conference revealing (now former) school deputy Scot Peterson stayed outside rather than confronting the shooter, Sheriff Israel said Peterson should have “went in. Addressed the killer. Killed the killer.”
Despite it all, Sheriff Israel refuses to resign.

For what good it will do, the Florida House opened an investigation, subpoenaing Broward County Schools and law enforcement.

Organizers plan for 500,000 attendees at ‘March For Our Lives’ gun-control march in Washington
The application filed this week with the National Park Service indicates the “March for Our Lives” will be March 24, although a location hasn’t been determined. The rally, organized by survivors of last week’s school massacre in Parkland, Fla., will have “sister marches” in other major cities, organizers said.

The event will include “student speakers, musical performers, guest speakers and video tributes,” according to the permit application, with 14 Jumbotrons and 2,000 chairs.

The kids are pawns, Democrats use Parkland students to get out the vote
In case you are on the fence about coming to the realization that the kids in Parkland, Florida are being used as stooges to push the anti-gun agenda of the left, there is proof in the form of social media. Here we have a tweet from conservative writer Mark Hemingway showing a student has signed off on a letter via Democrats.org: calling on like-minded people to support the I Will Vote initiative. Oh yeah, and change gun laws.

PTA organizes ‘gun safety’ walkouts, hides from parents far-left radicals tied to events

The California State Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is urging its members to “call out” federal legislators in support of gun control on March 14, coinciding with the “#Enough” school walkout being organized by the anti-Trump Women’s March organization.
A

ccording to the Women’s March website, students, teachers, and school administrators will walk out of school for 17 minutes beginning at 10:00am on the 14th.

Women’s March is headed by pro-Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, an associate of convicted terrorist Rasmieh Yousef Odeh who has blamed the “Jewish media” for her unpopularity

Women’s March co-founder defends herself against charge of ignoring anti-Semitism with anti-Semitism
In the audience at last weekend’s conference was Tamika Mallory, one of the leaders of the Women’s March, who got a special shout-out from Farrakhan and who regularly posts laudatory pictures of him on her Instagram account — as does Carmen Perez, another leader of the March. Linda Sarsour, another March organizer, spoke and participated at a Nation of Islam event in 2015. Her most notable response to his incendiary remarks this year was a glowing post on Perez’s Facebook page to praise Farrakhan’s youthful demeanor.

Dems want this spokesperson? Teen brags he hung up on Trump WH while classmate drops the F-bomb on TV

Stoneman Douglas high school student/activist David Hogg appeared on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” to stress that the gun control agenda he’s been pushing is not about politics.

He then bragged that he hung up on the White House… before his classmate dropped an “F-bomb” on national television, directed at “all generations before us.”
As Maher explained that President Trump is an anomaly, a “virus from outer space,” the high school student interjected: “I mean this sincerely, I really do. To all of the generations before us, we sincerely accept your apology. We appreciate that you are willing to let us rebuild the world that you f*cked up.”

Mother of Exploited Shooting Survivor Turns Out to Be A CNN VIP & Anti-Trump Activist

The mother of a teenager who survived the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting appears to have high level connections at CNN

One photo shows her children sitting at an anchor’s desk.

Boldrick is the mother of David Hogg, who has gained internet fame for his activism in the days since the shooting.

Hogg and his merry band of anti-gun crusaders have been paraded around by nearly every cable news network in America.

Apparently, activism runs in the family. A series of Facebook posts show that Boldrick is an avowed Democrat and anti-Trumper.

OBAMA: I DID MORE FOR GUN SALES THAN ANYBODY IN HISTORY
DAVID HOGG: HERE, HOLD MY BEER

To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens. — Adolph Hitler, 1933

There’s no evidence Hitler ever said these words, but it does reflect his opinion that disarming occupied nations was imperative to maintaining control of them.
