GRAMMY REPORT: Happy 37th birthday to Mama Buzz (today) and 9th birthday to Lil Buzz (yesterday). Dearest, Army Princess, and Grandbabygirl left around noon today to beat the blizzard. Daisey and I are tired. But what a great way to get tired, right? Dearest won’t be back until Tuesday morning, so we have lots of time to catch up on our rest.
TODDLER JIM: A federal District Court Judge in D.C., Timothy Kelly, heard two hours of argument today on the motion for a temporary restraining order requested by CNN and Jim Acosta regarding his White House “hard pass.” He intends to announce his decision tomorrow. The tweets Legal Insurrection posted suggest Kelly was underwhelmed by CNN’s arguments.
TUCKER CARLSON: “Call CNN what you will. But don’t pretend they’re defenders of the First Amendment.” This interview with Victor Davis Hanson is well worth watching.
STORMY’S LAWYER: Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Stormy Daniels, has been arrested for domestic violence. Avenatti, who has publicly speculated about a presidential run in 2020, says he is “confident that I will be fully exonerated.” Wait, what? Aren’t we all supposed to #BelieveTheWoman these days? Back when Brett Kavanaugh was being slimed by baseless accusations against him, Michael Avenatti was perfectly fine with flipping due process the bird. But since landing in the hot seat himself, he’s had a change of heart.
BOMBARD BODY LANGUAGE: Michael Avenatti Speech Arrested Released on Bail
CARAVAN INVASION: The Left says, “Don’t believe your eyes.” Denying reality is what they do. I am inclined to cite the Emperor’s New Clothes, but the idea of Nancy Pelosi in the buff is just too mind bleachy. I don’t understand AT ALL how “removing the border between the U.S. and Mexico” would work. Is Mexico going to cede sovereignty to us? Will Trump become their president too? If U.S. citizens decide to wander around Mexico without a visa or identification will they no longer be arrested? I’m thinking what they’re really talking about is not “no border between the U.S. and Mexico”, but a one-way border that protects Mexico’s sovereignty while totally eliminating ours.
CLASSY LEFTIST PROTESTERS: Ben Shapiro spoke at Ohio State this week and was protested, as usual. In case you had any doubts about the Left’s utter lack of anything good, just listen to what they were chanting.
#NEVERNANCY: Seventeen House Democrats have signed a letter vowing that they will not vote for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House. Unless Democrats “find” some more ballots, they will hold about 227 seats in the House next year, so if these 17 stick to their pledge, she could lack the necessary 218 votes needed to retake the gavel.
GOP LEADERSHIP: House Republicans have selected Kevin McCarthy to be the Minority Leader, 159-43. Steve Scalise, who was shot on a baseball field last year, unanimously won re-election to the No. 2 spot as whip. Liz Cheney will be GOP conference chairman.
FINAL PUSH: House Republicans still have the majority until January 3, and they’re hoping to make the most of it with key votes on the border wall and possibly more tax cuts.
KAMALA HARRIS: During the nomination hearing for Ronald Vitello to be director of ICE, Democrat Senator Kamala Harris talked to him like she was a mommy taking her naughty little boy step-by-step through what he had done and why it was wrong. Then she compared ICE to the KKK, which had just been likened to a terrorist group. The KKK? Really? That’s going to come as a surprise to ICE’s majority non-white work force.
DEMOCRATS HATE RELIGION: Tomorrow marks the 25th anniversary of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), which was signed into law by President Bill Clinton. Back then only 3 lawmakers voted against the legislation, but today over 170 House Democrats publicly back a bill which would effectively gut the RFRA.
OUCH: Now that I’ve got my new puter up and running, I’m happily able to play SCRABBLE again. My current opponents are Frankly the Nut and Mama Buzz. This was my rack yesterday. :0P
PEOPLE ARE AWESOME! This is really fun. 🙂
