OH NOES THE SHUTDOWN: President Trump canceled his Christmas trip to Mar-a-Lago to work during the shutdown, but Pelosi jet-setted to Hawaii while 800,000 government employees are currently not working. Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters was spotted partying in the Bahamas. Democrats are blaming President Trump for the shutdown, saying he’s acting like a spoiled child. But when he offered a compromise, they turned him down flat.

RUH ROH: President Donald Trump on Friday issued an executive order which would halt a planned 2.1 percent pay increase for federal government workers, something that is done automatically. Currently, about 800,000 federal employees are on furlough or working without pay because of the partial government shutdown. The only workers who are exempt from the blanket order are members of the military who are scheduled to receive a 2.6 percent pay raise

TRIP WAS UNANNOUNCED: Why would you want to tell the enemy that POTUS is coming?Former Secret Service agent, Dan Bongino, says, “Dear Libs, Presidential trips to conflict zones are NOT scheduled days in advance. They’re scheduled weeks in advance with advance teams on the ground up to 1-2 weeks prior. Your dopey suggestion that Trump took this Iraq trip in response to your criticisms this week is just dumb.”

ACOSTA’S TAKE: “O.M.G. Trump signed hats!” — The reality: Troops cheered Trump. Wildly. And the hats? They belonged to the soldiers who ASKED him to sign. Not like Obama, who had free cameras distributed to the troops he deigned to visit AND who handed out White House challenge coins to soldiers while he was actively campaigning.

TRUMP’S ACCOMPLISHMENTS: What the media has ignored over the past two years — It’s a looooong list! Way too much to reproduce here!

COP KILLER ARRESTED: He’s a known gang member — Police have arrested the illegal suspected of murdering California Police Corporal Ronil Singh. Word has it that the shooting happened when Singh stopped the thug on a suspected DUI. Wait, wut? I thought Nancy told us that we’re all SAFER if we have no border, cuz immigrants just want a better life.

DEMS SUCK: A majority of the Democrats in Congress tweeted about the recent and unavoidable deaths of two children while in Border Patrol custody. Not one of them tweeted about the vicious murder of a California police officer by an illegal with known gang affiliation.

SHERIFFS WANT THE WALL: A group of sheriffs from around the country recently called on Congress to pass at least $5 billion toward building a wall along the 2,000-mile southwest border. —

The No. 1 issue facing all Americans, I don’t care who you ask, is the heroin epidemic that affects us all. And the Mexican drug-trafficking cartels dominate that industry and they’re controlling it coming into and throughout the United States. … I’m tired of dealing with overdoses. I’m tired of dealing with violent crime. I’m tired of dealing with human trafficking. … We’re making arrests all the time, but they keep coming and they keep coming because our borders are wide open.”

VIDEO: Language warning! — It seems like this stuff keeps happening, yet I cannot remember even a single instance of a right-winger insulting, refusing service, or oughtright assaulting ANYone who was wearing an Obama t-shirt or hat. Can any of you? Yet WE’RE THE HATERS?! I. Don’t. Think. So.

CLIMATE HYPOCRISY: “Do as we say, not as we do” The New York Times published an editorial Wednesday lamenting President Donald Trump’s reversal of Obama-era climate policies. The New York Times flew wealthy readers around the world in a private jet for $135,000 a piece.

REALLY FAKE NEWS: The German weekly Der Spiegel, one of the top-selling publications in Europe, is reeling from a scandal that revealed that star reporter, Claas Relotius, has been making up his “news” stories for years.

GOOD RIDDANCE: An abortuary with multiple health code violations is now closed — Whole Woman’s Health of San Antonio, which was aborting unborn babies up to 17.6 weeks, was part of a larger Texas-based abortion chain that has amassed dozens of health and safety violations at its facilities. In 2012, they were caught illegally dumping aborted babies’ body parts. In 2013, they were cited for dozens of health violations, including problems with the sterilization of abortion instruments, lack of an RN or LVN on staff, rusty suction machines and expired and unlabeled medications. In 2017, they were cited for the same problems, including reusing instruments on multiple women without sterilizing and disinfecting them in between.

PROGRESSIVE ECONOMICS: New York’s Mayor Bill De Blasio urged New Yorkers not to patronize a Chick-fil-A that opened up in the city, but he’s going to hire people to pick up dirty needles that junkies leave lying around. Cuz golly gee whiz, those people who have just shot themselves full of whatever crap they use to avoid living in the real world rudely leave their used equipment on the ground rather than carrying it to the handy needle disposal bins the city’s tax payers provided for them. Who woulda thunk?

PROGRESSIVE EATING: How do you know someone’s a vegan? — Just wait two minutes and they’ll tell you. But hey, it turns out you can’t be white AND a woke vegan, because Americans are neocolonialist tools who have destroyed the diets of the native peoples who used to be able to afford tofu and quinoa. Or something.

I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP: Organizers of the Women’s March in Humboldt County, California, announced Friday that they have canceled the local Jan. 19 event because the marchers are overwhelmingly white.

WAIT, WUT?: On September 20, 2016, Kellogg Community College in Michigan arrested three people for handing out copies of the Constitution on campus. Yes, you read that right…the Constitution, the very document that protects free speech. Only now, a year and four months after the arrests and after a full year of litigation, has KCC finally be forced by the court to change its ridiculous speech policy.

NO, NO, AND NO: California is about to implement new sex education lessons that promote abortion and homosexuality. At least one school district has told parents they will NOT be allowed to opt out of having their children attend.

DO BRAIN WORK FIRST THING: According to psychologist Ron Friedman, the first three hours of your day are your most precious for maximized productivity.  “Typically, we have a window of about three hours where we’re really, really focused. We’re able to have some strong contributions in terms of planning, in terms of thinking, in terms of speaking well.”

I’M NOT THE WORST MOTHER IN THE WORLD AFTER ALL: I used to tell my kids I was whenever they complained about my rules — Alissa Evans, 9, had complained that her advent calendar chocolates tasted funny but her mother, Jess Evans, assumed she was just being picky so Alissa ate the candy each day … for ELEVEN days. Then Mommy Dearest read the front “Advent calendar for cats with Yogurt and Catnip Flavour Treats.” Whoops! But wait … an Advent calendar for cats?

    Sarah on CBS — CBS? Like with the SNL clip, I wouldn’t usually click on it, but a) trusted source = chrissy, and 2) Sarah!

    She sure is sharp. Just the way she starts off, a little shake of the head and saying, “Look…” cracks me up, like someone semi-patiently explaining the obvious to idiots. Which, come to think of it, is just what it is.

    “They’ve left the table altogether, so of course we’re far apart.” Bwah-hahahaha.

    Speaking of explaining the obvious to idiots!

    Wow. Blind squirrel Geraldo stumbles upon a nut. I’m actually impressed. A bit.

    I think it’s funny that vape store clerk meltdown and game store tranny meltdown went viral simultaneously. On OtherPeoplesVideos I did a playlist of those two clips and folks talking about it, and more. Rated R for language, mild violence, and hysterical NPC behavior.

    That Woman’s Health Clinic is another horror story. The arguments for legal abortion were reasonable: medical necessity, rare, early, safe, professional — and these places are none of — not even close to! — the above, no medical necessity; frequent (and repeated!); ‘way late (even encouraged!); life-threateningly nasty (18th Century, Milady says); commercial death mills as far from “performed by professional surgeon in a hospital” as you can get.

    first three hours of your day are your most precious for maximized productivity.

    When does the three hours start? The moment I wake up for the day? Or does it start after I manage to get all the kinks out, visit the toilet, get dressed, let the cats out, start the coffee, have my yogurt, and check for Bits and Bytes? Or after I’m done reading and commenting on Bits and Bytes? Of course, that’s three hours gone and now I need a nap…. 😀

    Very important to know: Does the Advent Calendar for Cats come in Pumpkin Spice?
