GRAMMY UPDATE: The Buzzers departed this morning. The Texans arrive tomorrow afternoon. Grammy is semi-comatose with exhaustion, but will do her best by all y’all to check out the news! 🙂 When I get to the Pearly Gates, I hope to find someone who can explain why God decided that small children should have sooooooooo much more energy than the grown-ups who love them!
TRUMP WANTS COASTIES TO GET PAID: Trump has called on top lawyers and staffers to figure out how the Coast Guard can make payroll despite being included in the shutdown. Military personnel under the Department of Defense are not included in the shutdown, but the Coasties are part of Homeland, which is included.
NEW YEAR’S EVE INVASION ATTEMPT FOILED: 150 try to storm the border at San Diego — They threw rocks at the Border Patrol agents while trying to hoist toddlers over the fence. It’s not clear to me what they planned to do with the kids if they got them over the concertina wire. Drop them? I mean, the BP agents were being pelted with ROCKS. They were supposed to come and catch the kids? Sheesh. Most of the invaders were turned back by tear gas. Twenty-five invaders who got over the fence were apprehended.
PELOSI/SCHUMER REFUSE TO LISTEN: This is what “bipartisan”looks like in Democrat Land –– Democratic lawmakers brought a border security briefing at the White House to a screeching halt Wednesday, refusing to even listen to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. “Democrats in the room either don’t care that there is a humanitarian crisis on the border or just prefer ignorance. It was incredibly disheartening that they don’t want to know the facts when making policy,” DHS Spokeswoman Katie Waldman said in a statement to TheDC. “Prefer ignorance” … sounds about right.

ILLEGAL CAUGHT ON MILITARY BASE: On December 12, illegal alien and druggie Francisco Manzano (33) jumped the security fence at at Luke Air Force Base, climbed onto a hangar roof, and tried to start a fire. He’s in custody.
WHAT A SCHMUCK: Romney begged Trump for his endorsements in 2012 and 2018 and Trump obliged. — Sen.-elect Mitt Romney has shown his “loyalty” to Trump and the Republican voters of Utah who elected him to the Senate by publishing an op-ed in which he says President Trump’s behavior since taking office “is evidence that the President has not risen to the mantle of the office.” Maybe the man who LOST to the buffoon who bowed to foreign leaders shouldn’t be throwing stones at the man who beat the candidate everyone was SURE would win.
ONE PERSON, ONE VOTE: We each have not just a right, but also a duty to vote for OUR OWN INTERESTS — How else can we determine what the majority actually wants?!
FAUX DIVERSITY: AOC pretends she’s from a “diverse” neighborhood in the Bronx — In reality, she grew up in Yorktown, where you were considered poor if your parents made only $50,000 a year each. The average home goes $477,000. The high school has very large theater, dance and band departments. And everyone drove a car to school the minute they got their licenses, including “Sandy Ocasio.”
