CLINTON FOUNDATION HEARINGS: Democrats are pathetic — The House Oversight Subcommittee on Government Operations is holding a hearing on Capitol Hill on the Clinton Foundation today. Mark Meadows (R-NC), the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Government Operations, will lead. Three Clinton Foundation whistleblowers are speaking, as well as Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch. In a bid to divert attention away from the Clinton crime family, Democrats brought in a “whistle-blower” from the Trump Foundation to testify. Mind you, the Clinton Foundation has been under investigation for ages. Also, the Trump Foundation has given away more than it collected. But TRUMP! ::smh::

BODY LANGUAGE: Government Shutdown Trump, Pelosi & Schumer — I wondered why Chuck was all hunched over. Pelosi and Schumer both sound like toddlers, not responding to Trump with new points, but rather repeating the same things again and again.

FOLLOW UP ON THE MEETING: CNN’s “fact check” got fact checked — Trump told Pelosi and Schumer, “People are pouring into our country, including terrorists…. We caught 10 terrorists over the last very short period of time. Ten. These are very serious people … that were looking to do harm.” CNN, never wanting to miss an opportunity to embarrass the president, reported: “DHS did not provide evidence of a single terrorist caught at the southern border over the very last short period of time as the president claimed.” Department of Homeland Security Spokesman Tyler Q. Houlton took to Twitter to tell us that CNN never reached out. Also, “DHS prevented 3,755 known or suspected terrorists from traveling to or entering the U.S. in FY 17. That’s in addition to 17,526 criminals, 1,019 gang members, and 3,028 special interest aliens.”

RUSSIA! RUSSIA! RUSSIA! — In 2010, as former President Bill Clinton prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow for giving a single speech, Clinton Foundation foreign policy adviser Amitabh Desai wrote to the State Department — then headed by SecState Hillary Clinton — for permission to meet with key business and government folks involved in the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom’s efforts to buy a bunch of our uranium. The email went to two of Hillary Clinton’s most senior advisers, Jake Sullivan and Cheryl Mills. Ultimately, the ex-president’s aides and the State Department decided not to hold any of these meetings. Instead, Bill Clinton got together with Vladimir Putin at the Russian leader’s private homestead.

JUDICIAL WATCH: Weekly Update “What an unholy mess” — President Tom Fitton discusses a BIG court ruling on Clinton emails, a NEW Clinton Foundation lawsuit, Comey testifying to Congress, plus Mueller special counsel abuses continue. I hope Tom Fitton has a body guard.

JUDICIAL WATCH: Breaking — Judicial Watch today released documents showing that Obama weaponized the State Department to kick off the Democrat’s non-stop unethical effort to discredit the incoming Trump Administration. Specifically, the Obama State Department provided classified Russia investigation information to Democrat members of Congress immediately prior to Trump’s inauguration.

SCRATCH A LIBERAL: From Stilton — Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski (whose last name is the single most valuable word you can play in Scrabble) made an unfortunate on-air faux pas Wednesday, when she called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “a wannabe dictator’s butt boy.” It’s another case in which if you scratch a liberal (and frankly, we think that’s always a good idea), you quickly find the kind of deep-rooted intolerance and bigotry that they accuse others of having.

THANK U MR. PRESIDENT: Children saved from abortion — During next January’s March for Life in Washington, D.C., pro-lifers will be bringing thank you letters and cards to President Trump from children all across America whose lives were saved from abortion. One of the organizers says, “Our hope is to have a face-to-face (meeting) with President Trump and Vice President Pence” so that the children saved from abortion can hand-deliver the letters to him. We constantly hear from pro-choice activists ‘(motherhood) will ruin your life. And now we have these mothers with their children – who are in high school, who are productive – their lives are not ruined. They’re celebrating their children. And I actually think that these children are perhaps the greatest witness toward overturning Roe.”

ELECTRIC CARS: The immoral choice — Not only are electric cars predominantly charged with nuclear and/or fossil fuel power, but also the batteries in them are built on the backs of an army of children, some as young as four years old, who work in polluted mines for pennies a day.

SMUT INDUSTRY: New Trump AG worries them — The porn industry is worried about the enforcement of obscenity laws now that President Trump has nominated William Barr, a “staunch Catholic conservative” to head the Justice Department. Barr was a vigorous enforcer of obscenity laws when he was Attorney General under President George H. W. Bush in the early 1990s.

MARRIAGE TO GHOST IS OVER: Earlier this year, an Irish woman married the ghost of a 300-year-old Haitian pirate named Jack. The wedding to her ‘soulmate’ took place on board a boat in international waters off the Irish coast. She recently let us all know that the marriage is over. She posted to social media, “I will explain all in due course but for now all I want to say is be VERY careful when dabbling in spirituality, it’s not something to mess with.” Ya think?

The Left Eats The Left

CNN election analyst on Dems’ 2020 race: “I am not sure it’s the time to nominate a white man”

Enten’s not giving you his personal take on white male candidates writ large or white men in general, he’s saying that to Democratic primary voters being a traditional white male candidate may be more of a liability than an asset at this point. Which is true. By the time 2020 gets here, it’ll be 16 years since they’ll have nominated one for president and almost 24 years since they successfully elected one president.

And because the left measures all things in terms of “progress,” nominating a white guy after the trailblazing candidacies of Obama and Hillary will be seen by some as a “step back.” Activist righties spend much of their time nowadays complaining about the left’s obsession with identity politics, with good reason, but that’s exactly Enten’s point in the segment. Identity politics will matter next year in the primary. A lot.

Are You People On Crack?

Almost 30 Percent Think Santa Claus Should Be Female Or Gender Neutral

We are not far from all the holiday traditions we grew up with being banned or hideously mutated because some clown suffers from a bad case of butthurt.

“Modern Santa” has tattoos, a stylishly-trimmed beard, skinny jeans, sneakers, and a hoverboard. He’s tech-savvy and looks like he could easily feature in GQ magazine.

A new survey found that over 27 percent of people asked would rebrand Santa Claus as a woman or gender-neutral.

The Real Agenda

Nancy Pelosi takes aim at Trump’s taxes

It’s not hard to figure what they’re up to. They’re looking for an excuse to take his old returns to a crooked democrat judge to concoct some sort of impropriety. “Tax evasion!”…”Tax fraud!”…”Impeach him!”

Democratic Rep. Richard E. Neal, the next chairman of the tax panel, plans to insist that Trump release his tax returns, according to The Washington Post.

If the president does not voluntarily hand them over, Neal said he would make a request to the Treasury Department.

Democratic lawmakers have been requesting the filings to determine whether there are any conflicts of interest with his business dealings and possible income from Russia.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is also looking into Trump’s business dealings and income as part of his investigation.

Climbing The Political Ladder

Incoming NY Attorney General vows to use full power of the State to get Trump

Letitia James: “We will use every area of the law to investigate President Trump and his business transactions and that of his family as well.”

It seems every democrat looking to make a name for themselves is trying to get Trump.

AG Eric Schneiderman, who ended up resigning in disgrace after sexual abuse allegations, made a name for himself by threatening Trump, as the NY Times reported just before Schneiderman resigned.

Schneiderman’s interim successor, AG Barbara Underwood, continued the use of the Office of Attorney General to get a political enemy. Her press release reflected the full-blown attempt to take down a variety of Trumps.

All of the candidates for NY AG in 2018 pledged to use the Office to get Trump. As CNBC reported, candidate Letitia James was particularly aggressive in pledging to get Trump:

Keith Has Seen The Light

Has Keith Richards mellowed out?! Legendary Rolling Stones hellraiser says he ‘stopped drinking a year ago’ and stopped the ‘other stuff’ because he ‘wasn’t feeling right’ (and his bandmates couldn’t be happier!)

He’s been abusing sex, drugs and alcohol for more than 50 years and he’s still here. It just doesn’t seem fair.

Richards, who turns 75 on December 18, will embark on the U.S leg of the Stones tour next year with bandmates Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts.

But this time, he told Rolling Stone magazine, he will perform in front of one million people in 14 cities completely sober.

Bandmate Ronnie Wood said he is ‘a pleasure to work with’ since cutting back.

A New Front In The Assault On Trump

Trump Inauguration Spending Under Criminal Investigation by Federal Prosecutors

Once again, infested DOJ, this is the office anti-Trump Preet Bhrara was in charge of.

They can’t get Trump through Mueller, so they’re trying another fishing expedition, investigation without a crime to tar the administration. They’re looking at did donors give money for access? Are they kidding? That’s what donors have done with every administration for the history of the country.

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether President Trump’s 2017 inaugural committee misspent some of the record $107 million it raised from donations, people familiar with the matter said.

Media Still Kissing Barky’s Hind Quarters

Barack Obama receives RFK Human Rights award at NYC gala

When one thinks of human rights, his is not the first name that comes to mind.

Former President Barack Obama was honored with the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope Award at a gala in midtown Manhattan Wednesday evening.

“I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but I’ve been on this hope kick for a while now. Even ran a couple of campaigns on it. Thank you for officially validating my hope credentials,”

The organization’s president, Kerry Kennedy, presented the award, which celebrates leaders “who have demonstrated a commitment to social change.” Past recipients include Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, Bono, George Clooney and Robert De Niro.
