Bits & Bytes

GENESIS: And you thought YOU had awful in-laws Who married Adam and Eve’s kids?” is one of those “ah ha the Bible is stooopid” things non-believers like to throw at us. But I just read that DNA studies have proven that modern day humans not only all have the same original mom and dad, but also that we carry Neanderthal genes!

LIBERALISM: Then and now — When I was growing up, “liberal” meant something good. Now, it means you spend an inordinate amount of time finding things to be pissed off about and inflicting your bad attitudes on everyone around you. NOT that conservatives are always perfectly rational and reasonable …

PLUS, Alaska and Hawaii’s coasts face East, West, South and North. We also have coast Northern coast line in the lower 48, along the Great Lakes.

2018_12 05 Trump hand

TRUMP DIDN’T: Oh yes he did — Tweets and posts have claimed that President Donald Trump disdained former President George H.W. Bush by not putting his hand over his heart as his casket passed by. What he did was drop his hand after the casket had passed by. Other people, notably former President Jimmy Carter, also did not put their hands over their hearts for as long as others did.

2015 Hillary audience

CLINTON KARMA: I’m sure LOTS of people will show up for her TRIAL. The chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation has turned informant

From Thomas Lifton at American Thinker: The reckoning for the Clintons I have dreamed of for a quarter of a century finally approaches with whistleblowing and documents about the slush fund known as the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.  The ability of the Clintons to blow off charges of criminality will be crippled by the latest evidence revealed to be in the hands of prosecutors.  With the former first couple humiliated by their inability to draw a decent crowd anymore, and plenty of other Democrats anxious to move on and put this embarrassment behind them, it is starting to look as though karma finally is catching up with them.”

From John Solomon at The Hill: “When a House subcommittee chairman bangs his gavel next week to convene an unprecedented investigative hearing into the Clinton Foundation, two questions will linger as preeminent: Is the Clinton family charity really the international do-gooder that earned a perfect four-star rating from Charity Navigator, or does it suffer from corruption and illegalities as conservatives allege? And if it is the latter, how much evidence of wrongdoing does the government possess?

“The answer to the first question is that the foundation and its projects reported collecting about $2.5 billion to help global crises, from AIDS to earthquakes, even as its own auditors, lawyers and employees privately warned of problems over the years. The answer to the second question may reside in 6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.”

MIGRANT CRIME: Germany — Since Merkel opened the country’s borders, the number of weapon permits has increased 130 percent. Clearly, the German people have little faith in the authorities to protect them from migrant crime.

ABORTION: The Heartbeat Protection Act — Introduced on January 12, 2017, this bill would ban abortions after the fetal heartbeat can be detected, which is at about six weeks. Former abortionist, Dr., Kathi A. Aultman, testified in favor of the bill. After medical school, she says she became an abortionist, and later a medical director for Planned Parenthood, partly because of her strong feminist leanings, but also because the money was good. She even committed abortions while she herself was pregnant. Now a Christian and pro-life, she now compares herself to a serial killer. “I probably murdered more people than Ted Bundy or any of the mass murderers if you consider all the abortions that I did,” she says. A video of her testimony before Congress is posted at the link.

ROE V WADE: Bad law or judicial malpractice? — “Pro-lifers and honest pro-abortion legal scholars agree that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided. But just how wrong is it? Is it bad law solely because it declares a right to something the Constitution is silent about, or does its judicial malpractice run deeper? … Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy has published an article written by Harvard law student (and former Live Action contributor) Josh Craddock that lays out the case in perhaps the most depth it’s ever received.”

TRUMP’S CHIEF OF STAFF: “I will be departing at the end of the year.” – President Trump’s chief of staff, former General John F. Kelly, is leaving the White House. Vice President Pence’s COF, Nick Ayers, is also expected to leave, so he can work for a super PAC ahead of the 2020 campaign.

TRUMP’S AG NOMINEE: William Barr — The 68-year-old jurist is a former U.S. attorney general who served in the position from November 1991 to January 1993 under President George H.W. Bush. He is also an advocate of investigating Hillary Clinton. If confirmed by the Senate, Barr would succeed acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, who took over after Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR: Wait, what? — It’s true. Unemployed Colin “take a knee to protest the racism of America” says he’ll play for any team that offers him a job … including the Redskins.

TYSON: More dirt — A fourth accuser has come forward to Buzzfeed News claiming Neil deGrasse Tyson drunkenly approached her at a 2010 party, making sexual jokes and propositioning her to join him alone in his office. The woman isn’t named in the story but Buzzfeed was able to find evidence she had told numerous people about the incident at the time. In a 2014 email shared with BuzzFeed News, she described the incident to her own employer in order to shoot down a proposed collaboration with Tyson.

COMMON CORE CONNECTIONS: Gee, what a surprise /sarc — I found this in Young Adults section of my on-line library’s catalog: The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang. “Sebastian’s secret weapon (and best friend) is the brilliant dressmaker Frances—one of only two people who know the truth: sometimes this boy wears dresses. … This title has Common Core connections.” ::sigh:: I hope my kids are up to raising godly children in this twisted age.

The Newest Socialist Star

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal Is ‘Pretty Much All Fantasy-land’
Experts decry ‘pie in the sky’ environmental plan

Since sweeping into Congress atop a wave of far-left support, Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) has been very clear what her number one goal is: a Green New Deal for America.

“This is going to be the Great Society, the moonshot, the civil rights movement of our generation. That is the scale of the ambition that this movement is going to require,” Ocasio-Cortez said during a Monday town hall with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.).

Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal for a select committee conspicuously leaves out a lot of the details of how, exactly, these goals would be achieved (a common theme in Congressional proposals to enact radical goals). Instead, it punts them to the committee’s 15 members—nine Democrats and six Republicans—themselves.

Much of the goal of Ocasio-Cortez’s GND proposal does not seem to be about environmental policy at all. While light on solutions for actual implementation, the proposed bill incorporates a number of popular far-left economic ideas as part of “a historic opportunity to virtually eliminate poverty in the United States and to make prosperity, wealth and economic security available to everyone participating in the transformation.”

The Hillary Defense

Sharyl Attkisson was good enough to go through Comey’s testimony and break it down into easy-to-understand blips and tweets.

She also wrote an entire article on it if you’re interested.

It’s a stale but effective defense mechanism. Just claim you don’t remember anything. Nobody can conclude what’s in your mind. Hillary did it every time she had to testify. The contemptible bastard James Comey pulled the same stunt. It’s all a stall tactic. He never was, is not, and never will face any kind of legal jeopardy. He only needs to stall until the democrats take over then it will all go away.

Trump Rips Comey For ‘Not Recalling’ 245 Times Before Congress

Comey’s Friday testimony was published nearly 24 hours after he appeared before the joint House Oversight and Judiciary Committees to discuss investigations pertinent to the 2016 presidential election. Comey claimed on dozens of occasions that he did not recall or he did not know the answer to key questions regarding the FBI’s initiation of an investigation against the Trump campaign in 2016.

Comey told the committee that he did not know when he was fired as FBI director whether there was any proven collusion with the Russian government.

World’s Longest Temper Tantrum Continues Unabated

‘Presidential Harassment’: Trump Under Unprecedented Attack On Multiple Fronts

It won’t ever end. He defeated the Hildabeast. He must pay dearly.

“The relentless assaults on this president from every front were previously unimaginable and absolutely unprecedented,” said Sidney Powell, a Texas appeals attorney whose book, “License to Lie,” takes on Justice Department corruption. “The ‘resistance’ has sunk to a new low which I hope they live to regret. They truly became ‘creeps on a mission to destroy the President.’”

For some liberals, Mr. Trump is already guilty.

“In a saner world, there’d be no need to wait for Mueller,” said a Twitter post by Jonathan Rauch, an activist journalist and gay rights advocate at the Brookings Institution. “Nothing he finds will be worse than what we already know: this POTUS was elected and serves in violation of his oath of office. Pity we need prosecutors to tell us that.”

McCarthy: Trump Likely To Be Indicted

Andrew C. McCarthy: Why Trump is likely to be indicted by Manhattan US Attorney

The major takeaway from the 40-page sentencing memorandum filed by federal prosecutors Friday for Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal attorney, is this: The president is very likely to be indicted on a charge of violating federal campaign finance laws.

It has been obvious for some time that President Trump is the principal subject of the investigation still being conducted by the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.

But when Cohen pleaded guilty in August, prosecutors induced him to make an extraordinary statement in open court: the payments to the women were made “in coordination with and at the direction of” the candidate for federal office – Donald Trump.

Prosecutors would not have done this if the president was not on their radar screen. Indeed, if the president was not implicated, I suspect they would not have prosecuted Cohen for campaign finance violations at all. Those charges had a negligible impact on the jail time Cohen faces, which is driven by the more serious offenses of tax and financial institution fraud, involving millions of dollars.

What Did You Expect?

FAKE NEWS: There are rumors running around the conservative internet that Rep. Adam Schiff’s sister is married to George Soros’ son. It’s not true.

Melissa Robin Schiff was the maiden name of the soon-to-be ex-wife of Robert Soros (son of George). But she is not Congressman Schiff’s sister. Per their NY Times wedding announcement, her parents were named Haskel and Marlene Schiff. Per Adam Schiff’s bio, his parents were named Edward and Sherrill Ann Schiff.

Schiff: Trump May Face ‘Real Prospect of Jail Time’

Schiff said, “There’s a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office, the Justice Department may indict him, that he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time. We have been discussing the issue of pardons the president may offer to people or dangle in front of people. The bigger pardon question may come down the road, as the next president has to determine whether to pardon Donald Trump.”

It’s Who, Not What You Know

Sort of an upscale version of the Ghetto Lottery. Try to provoke a reaction from cops, make sure your homies have they Obama phones on to video then sue for a pile of money. They see every sort of slip, fall, fender bender as a means to enrich themselves. It’s even better when your daddy is a race-hustling hoaxster who is buddies with the communist who runs the city.

CtH: Back in the 70s when I drove a school bus, I had a high school student who told me, with GLEE, how he had gotten into a fight on school property and broke his back. He also won $1,000 from the school district when his parents sued. He bought a car with his “winnings” and sincerely hoped he could do something similar again. HE BROKE HIS BACK!

Al Sharpton’s Daughter Bags $95,000 Settlement for Sprained Ankle

Al Sharpton’s daughter bagged $95,000 in settlement money from New York City for spraining her ankle on an uneven Manhattan street—even after posting photos of herself on social media climbing mountains and wearing high heels months after the fall.

“I sprained my ankle real bad lol,” Dominique Sharpton wrote in an Instagram post after she took a tumble in October 2014.

Sharpton claimed in her lawsuit that she suffered from “permanent physical pain,” but subsequent social media posts just months after the fall showed she had a very active lifestyle.

One of her Instagram posts showed Sharpton climbing mountains on vacation, while she sported high heels and climbed a ladder to hang Christmas decorations in other social media photos.
