2018_12 15 Trump at Arlington

WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA: Every year, volunteers lay Christmas wreaths on thousands of veterans’ graves at more than 1,400 cemeteries in all 50 states, as well as at sea and abroad. Yesterday, President Donald Trump made an unannounced visit to Arlington National Cemetery to honor the fallen and the hardy volunteers enduring wind and rain to get the job done.

DIRTY COP MUELLER: FBI agents must make contemporaneous reports about their interviews and file them within five days of the interview. But the “official” report (called a 302) on General Flynn’s January 24, 2017 ambush interview — the interview that was used as grounds for his arrest — was not filed until July 19, 2017.

What happened to the original 302 and who altered it to give Mueller grounds to arrest Flynn? And why did Flynn plead guilty to something he didn’t do?

Reportedly, the redacted agent, Joe Pientka, is willing to defend General Flynn, but that the DAG Rod Rosenstein doesn’t want him to testify.

TRUMP ECONOMY: Unemployment near 50 year low — The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits dropped by 27,000 in early December, erasing a surge around Thanksgiving that appears to have been triggered by an earlier-than-usual holiday. Claim numbers are near a half-century low.

PRISON REFORM: Lots of pols have promised prison reform — Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner — is finishing what others have failed to get done for 20-years. Both liberal and conservative prison reform advocates are giving Kushner credit for getting the bill ready for passage.

NEW CHIEF OF STAFF: He voted to defund PP — Early on in his administration, President Trump picked U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina to head the Office of Management and Budget. He has now tapped Mulvaney to fill the top White House position.

TRUMP IS SO RACIST? “We all agree on the need to better secure the border and to punish employers who choose to hire illegal immigrants. We are a generous and welcoming people, here in the United States, but those who enter the country illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of law and they are showing disregard for those who are following the law. We simply cannot allow people to pour into the U.S., undetected, undocumented, unchecked and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, lawfully to become immigrants in this country.”BARACK OBAMA, 2005

2018_12 15 OBAMACARE just needs a tuneup

OBAMACARE: SCOTUS will no doubt get another crack at this — U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor in Fort Worth ruled that core provisions of The Affordable Care Act (aka, Obamacare) are unconstitutional. The decision is almost certain to be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court.

Not surprisingly, Kamala Harris went all “Republicans just want people to die” about the court’s decision. “Make no mistake: Republicans are responsible for the Affordable Care Act being declared unconstitutional by a Texas judge. 19 GOP Attorneys General and Trump’s White House support the lawsuit. Now tens of millions of people’s health care is at-risk. That’s the truth.”

Twitchy collected some of the best retorts:

  • Technically, the Constitution is responsible. Glad to know you consider it a Republican document
  • Yay for the Republicans! Now they can get the government out of the health insurance business. Obamacare nearly destroyed the healthcare industry and YOU were all in. Shameful!
  • The truth is that it is a horrible law that hurt more people than it helped.
  • Health care is not at risk. Plenty of care out there.
  • Make no mistake; tens of millions of people will now not have to pay for someone else’s healthcare while not being able to afford care for themselves or their family. Damn right the @GOP own this!
  • If you’re as stupid as Kamala believes you are, you’re getting exactly what you deserve.

Meanwhile, what would the day be without one of AOC’s economic brain farts? This time she assured us that health care in the U.S. sucks, so we should totes have the government run it.

Uhhhhhhhh … no. Health CARE in the U.S. is second to none. The health insurance industry is a bit of a mess, because of hmmmm let me think … politicians?

NEW YORK IGNORES DISABLED: This is truly appalling — I just got an email from my rep, Tom Reed, saying that he has learned about and taken action to correct the fact that Governor Cuomo’s Justice Center basically IGNORES the abuse and murder of people with disabilities by state employees! Nearly 1,400 allegations related to staff abuses, patient neglect, sexual assaults and patient deaths have been reported to the New York State Justice Center. The Justice Center investigated less than 2.5 percent of these cases. Reed has asked the DOJ to investigate the lack of prosecutions, referrals and due process violations that have been alleged and recommend a course of action.

BELGIUM TARGETS DISABLED: And it’s all legal — In 2010, 38-year-old Tine Nys was one of approximately 1,000 people euthanized in Belgium. Nys was not suffering from a terminal illness. In fact, she wasn’t sick at all. She had Asperger’s Syndrome, a mild form of autism. Her psychiatrist referred her for assisted suicide over her parents’ objections.

FACEBOOK LIES: No, really?! — Journalists working as factcheckers for Facebook have pushed to end a controversial media partnership with the social network, saying the company has ignored their concerns and failed to use their expertise to combat misinformation.

CNN FAKE NEWS: Lying by omission — James O’Keefe says, “Leaked CNN audio exposes how the network selectively edited a panelist discussing voter fraud to portray him as a conspiracy theorist. Project Veritas receives materials like these via https://www.projectveritas.com/tips/.”

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS: Just say NO to jokesTucker interviews comedian who was told by a college: “You can perform here… but only if you stay away from anything related to “racism, sexism, classism, ageism, ableism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia or anti-religion or anti-atheism.” He says he was born in the Soviet Union and the contract stipulations “made me feel right at home.”

BOY SCOUTS CAVED TO PROGS: Now they’re broke — In recent years, the Boy Scouts of America has changed its policies to allow gay leaders and to allow girls to join. Those decisions are having a major impact on the organization’s bottom line and now they are reportedly close to bankruptcy.

2018_12 15 St Teresa of Calcutta - Abortion

I REGRET MY ABORTION: Shout Your Abortion — No doubt it was to be expected that the pro-aborts would respond to the successful “I Regret My Abortion” campaign with one of their own. The part that makes me really sad is that women who refuse to repent will face dire consequences in the after life. We need to pray for them and for the women (and men) who are still struggling to believe they are forgiven and receive God’s mercy. The first link below has a heart-wrenching story by just one woman who regrets her abortion.

I REGRET MY DNA: Elizabeth Warren finally admits out loud that she’s white — Democrats who are busy screaming for Donald Trump’s tax returns should scream just as loudly for Warren to release her employment applications to the law schools at Harvard and Penn. Let us see whether she did or did not claim a leg up on the progressive racial preference ladder based on her faux Native American ancestry. And while they’re at it, let’s get a peek at Barack Obama’s college records, m’kay? Inquiring minds want to know if he did or did not claim to be a foreign student named Barry Soetoro from Indonesia in order to get financial aid.

CORRUPT SOCIALIST NUNS: A couple of nuns out in Southern California have been accused of embezzling at least $500,000 from the Catholic school they ran as principal and vice principal. Allegedly, they spent the money on gambling sprees to Las Vegas, among other pursuits. Their order, which is heavy on the radical, left-wing, social justice front, helped shape many Alinskyites, including Barack Obama.

PRIVATE JUDGMENT: David Carlin at “The Catholic Thing” makes a good case for his belief that, “To a very great extent, American Catholicism has become a form of Protestantism. And worse still, a form of liberal Protestantism.”

Minneapolis, Tackling Housing Crisis And Inequity, Votes To End Single-Family Zoning

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
The infestation of this once beautiful state continues.
Now you can’t even be safe in your own neighborhood. All because an extremist Muslim was elected president…twice.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
In a bold move to address its affordable-housing crisis and confront a history of racist housing practices, Minneapolis has decided to eliminate single-family zoning, a classification that has long perpetuated segregation.

The Minneapolis City Council voted last Friday to get rid of the category and instead allow residential structures with up to three dwelling units — like duplexes and triplexes — in every neighborhood. Minneapolis is believed to be the first major city in the United States to approve such a change citywide.
In Minneapolis, the decision came as part of a sweeping plan to propel the city into the future by addressing issues like housing, racial equity and climate change. The plan, called Minneapolis 2040, drew thousands of public comments, “Don’t Bulldoze Our Neighborhoods” yard signs and a last-minute lawsuit, but ultimately passed on a 12-1 vote.

The grim holiday tradition of counting Baltimore’s murder victims

Yesterday, the Baltimore Police Department confirmed that another body dropped on the streets of Charm City had brought their 2018 murder total to 297. The unnamed victim was a known gang member, described by police as “a former Public Enemy No. 1” and had been acquitted of a firebombing over the summer. Given the city’s recent history, the odds of there not being at least three more killings over the next sixteen days are not encouraging, to put it mildly.
But as the funerals continue, residents of Baltimore should remember one thing. Their own elected representatives have continually voted against tougher sentencing for gun crimes and other measures which might have helped stem the violence. In the end, the only people who can save Baltimore are the voters who go to the polls each year.

In an effort to demonstrate its “commitment to inclusivity,” Washington State University has begun stocking men’s restrooms with free menstrual products.

The initiative is one of many focusing on “improving the transgender community experience on campus,” and is currently being tested in three restrooms on the Pullman, Wash. campus. The university is in the process of “assessing similar needs” at other WSU campuses to determine which men’s rooms will receive new accommodations.

I don’t recall Barky ever honoring our war dead this way. If he did,he’d have his personal boot licking media covering it.

President Donald Trump made an unannounced visit to Arlington National Cemetery on Saturday to honor America’s fallen as thousands across the country laid wreaths on veterans’ graves.
Trump paid his respects as volunteers for ‘Wreaths Across America‘ waited in long lines to place a Christmas wreath on the tombs of America’s greatest heroes. The event, which is held every December, aims to “remember, honor, and teach” about those who served, and perished, fighting for America’s freedom. In addition to Arlington National Cemetery, Wreaths Across America Day is observed at more than 1,400 cemeteries in all 50 states, as well as at sea and abroad.

Another Good Man Destroyed

Interior Secretary Zinke to Step Down After Dems Bury Him in Legal Fees and Investigations Over His Trump Socks, Real Estate Deals

Bloomberg White House reporter Jennifer Jacobs reported, “Ryan Zinke has notified the White House he intends to step down as interior secretary. Concern about legal costs and scrutiny of his travel, political activity and potential conflicts of interest were factors in Zinke’s decision, I’m told. Plan is to announce Wednesday.”

“Replacement names that have emerged include Nevada’s Dean Heller, Nevada’s Adam Laxalt, Wisconsin’s Scott Walker, Idaho’s Butch Otter, Utah’s Sean Reyes and others,” Jennifer Jacobs added.
In July, the Office of Special Counsel (not to be confused with Mueller’s Special Counsel) opened a case file on President Trump’s Interior Secretary, Ryan Zinke for a possible violation of the Hatch Act because he posted a photo of Trump socks on Twitter.

Yes, that is correct. A Trump official was being investigated over his socks

THEY NEVER LET UP,NOT EVEN FOR A SECOND
Enviros already start their campaign to derail Zinke’s likely replacement

In the several hours since President Donald Trump announced Ryan Zinke would be stepping down from his position as Secretary of the Interior Department, critics have already launched an attack website against his likely replacement.

The Western Values Project (WVP), a left-leaning environmental organization, has launched http://www.davidbernhardt.org, a website that purportedly lists the conflicts of interest in David Bernhardt’s past. Bernhardt is the current deputy secretary of the Interior, and will serve as acting secretary once Zinke leaves at the end of the year.

KFC’s chicken-scented yule logs unleash 11 herbs and spices, sell out within hours

One of the more memorable holiday items of 2018 will probably have to be the chicken-scented yule logs from Kentucky Fried Chicken.

The chicken chain restaurant launched its own KFC-scented Enviro-Logs on Thursday, claiming that once burning, the logs will smell like the Colonel’s signature blend of 11 herbs and spices, Fox News reported.
