Nov 9 early a.m. The Buzzers are HERE!! They’re asleep and I’m not, so I’ll do the news while I await more Grammy Joy.
Nov 10 early a.m. Okay, so I lasted until lunch time, but I had to skip the Science Center to rest and was fairly useless in the evening. Thankfully, Dearest and Mama Buzz made dinner. I’m going to try and get the dishes caught up before the bouncing horde awakens. Dear God in Heaven, why did you give children so MUCH energy and parents and grandparents so little?!
PRAYERS please: Dearest’s mom passed away last night.
I NEED A TISSUE: “My baby has a heartbeat?”
TRUMP WON: “While Tuesday night was not a complete win for Republicans, there was no blue wave, either. By most measures, Republicans beat the odds of history and nearly everyone’s expectations, while Democrats were left disappointed as the fantasy of Beto O’Rourke, Andrew Gillum, Stacey Abrams and others winning fizzled. Not one new progressive Democrat was successful bursting onto the scene. It will take a few days to process the meaning of this year’s election returns, but the instant analysis is clear: Democrats may have won the House, but Trump won the election.” – Ed Rogers
HATE CRIME: These people are evil. And stupid. “Antifa”? Riiiight. You know who else behaved the way these thugs do? Nazis. Who were FASCISTS and PROUD OF IT. I’m grateful for the support folks have shown for the Carlson family and the condemnation of Antifa’s behavior. Thinking about Mrs. Carlson hiding in the pantry just makes me cry. She must have been so frightened. “They were threatening my family to make me stop talking.” – Tucker Carlson
The Antifa mob that swarmed Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s home on Wednesday evening reportedly vandalized his home and car. The incident is now being investigated as a suspected “hate crime.” Tucker and the kids were not at home. Mrs. Carlson hid in the pantry in fear as the mob of approximately 20 slammed themselves into the door, shouted threats, and spray painted the driveway. The group responsible has published online the home address of Tucker, his brother Buckley, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, and Daily Caller’s Neil Patel. They encourage fellow thugs to “go to their homes and their workplaces, and find them in restaurants. We invite others to do the same! Get creative!”
SHOOTING: Late last night, 12 people were killed in a horrific shooting in Thousand Oaks, California. This morning, President Donald J. Trump signed a Proclamation for flags to be flown at half-mast to honor the 12 people who were killed. The victims include Sgt. Ron Helus, who rushed to the building when he heard the man still shooting inside the bar.
RESTRICTING ASYLUM: The Trump administration said it would deny asylum to migrants who enter the country illegally. Under the new rules, migrants who enter the country at a port of entry are still able to apply for asylum.
GUN CONTROL: Nancy Pelosi, expected to be elected Speaker of the House in January, says that gun control “will be a priority for us going into the next Congress.”
SOME CHICK NAMED HEATHER: Preach it, girlfriend! This tweeter pushed back at the Left’s sexist “vagina shaming” narrative about conservative white women. I’m with “Fran” about this STRONG thread: “Heather, I voted the way I voted in 2016 for these very reasons. I am so extremely tired of being identified by by arrogant, smug, condescending assholes. The left doesn’t know me and they don’t care to learn. They just label me and move on.”
AWESOME! I’ve never seen this before. Just two months after President Reagan was shot in an attempt on his life, a balloon popped loudly during a speech. His response is FABULOUS.
