I had so many items in Bits & Bytes about Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, I decided to just give him his own posting.

President Trump has had a busy week. Last Monday he named his choice for the next Supreme Court Justice. The next day he headed for the NATO summit in Brussels, where he took command.

On Friday’s broadcast of “CNN Newsroom,” Representative Steve Cohen (D-TN) stated that he regrets saying Peter Strzok deserves a Purple Heart and that he used the term “metaphorically, not literally. I never literally thought the Purple Heart should have been given to Agent Strzok.” Continue reading

How Can We Miss You

…if you won’t go away?
OK, this isn’t funny anymore. When Hillary’s plans for world domination were smashed, I’m convinced something snapped. Now she’s behaving like the famous scene: “Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my closeup.”
Hillary begins speech: “I’m so tired, I can barely stand.”
Receiving the Women’s Rights Award from the union, she railed on how she has been oppressed in life. Continue reading
