MASCOTS: Dearest was going to come home yesterday, but the snow, snow, and more snow. I’ve got power, food, and internet, so I’m fine. And the mascots clearly aren’t minding more time with Nonno! I haven’t heard about their weather yet this morning; looking out my own window revealed a solid blanket of snow as far as the eye could see. They were able to get to the Maryland Science Center in Baltimore yesterday, but plan to stay home after Mass today and continue letting Nonno doze off as desired. The march really wore him out. Tomorrow is a federal holiday, so no DC traffic; he’s planning to get up early and drive home in time to dig me out before it gets dark. Our wonderful neighbor took his big snow blower to our driveway, but there’s still 18″ blocking both doors and the front path that I absolutely should not even attempt to shovel.
BUZZFEED REPORT: Leaks and lies — A Thursday report by Buzzfeed accused Trump of directing his then-personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress. The report said Mueller’s investigators learned about it “through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents.” IOW, through leaks from Mueller’s office.
Trump spokespeople denied the charges as “categorically false” and “absolutely ridiculous.” No other news organization was able to confirm the report nearly 24 hours after it’s publication. Only after several prominent news organizations expressed skepticism about the report did Mueller also deny the charges.
Hannity says he has a list of fake news stories from 2017 alone that fill 47 printed pages. The Left Stream Media has never been held accountable for any of them; they just move from one to the next to the next. “It’s as low as I’ve ever seen.” -Mark Levin
NO DACA AMNESTY: Democrats refuse yet another Trump compromise — President Donald Trump gave Democrats a new proposal to end the shutdown and secure our southern border. A senior House Democratic aide said Democrats do not consider the plan an acceptable compromise, because it includes full funding for the wall. IOW, they’re doubling, tripling, quadrupling down on their “no wall” thing. Morons. I hope this comes back to bite them in the ass in 2020.
SENATOR CRUZ: Rips into his Democratic counterparts for refusing to offer anything during shutdown negotiations.
DEMOCRATS REFUSE TO COMPROMISE: Judge Jeannine is even snarkier and more angry than usual, which is saying something! LOL — “President Trump has been at the White House virtually every day working and waiting, and trying to make a deal bending, compromising and offering solutions. [The Dems] not only disrespect him, they sometimes don’t even show up. They’ve refused his every overture, put a stake in the ground, proving that politics are more important than putting people back to work.” … “Donate Congressional salaries to those who aren’t getting one.” Now THERE’S an idea! Watch this to the end. LOL
A BARRIER: They say it is what they need more than anything. — In my humble opinion, what the people working the border say should count more than what Democrats in DC say.
DUMBOCRAT SOLUTION: Nancy thinks we’d be fine if we just scanned cars coming through legal ports of entry. Well, all righty, then! Meanwhile … poor Speaker Nancy, deprived of her on-demand military transport, was spotted flying commercial, maybe to spend the week-end at home. Cry me a river.
ELITISM ON DISPLAY: When it comes to her own precious self, nothing is too good for Fancy Nancy — WordPress can’t seem to decide whether or not to load this. If there’s no long text graphic here, click on the link. It’s a report on how much $$ Pelosi has spent on military flights for herself and her nearest and dearest.
PRAGER U: The GOP was founded to end slavery. — The Democratic Party fought to preserve it. Democrats keep talking about Trump’s “racist” wall. But we’re not the ones who fought to keep blacks in chains. They were.
SHOCK, NOT: Funny thing how the “we’re alllll about science” Democrats ignore factual evidence showing that taking guns away from law abiding citizens is stupid.
- GUN CONTROL LAWS DON’T WORK — A study conducted by the Violence Prevention Research Program (VPRP) at UC Davis and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that California’s strict gun control laws had absolutely zero impact.
- CRIMINALS USE ILLEGAL GUNS — The DOJ did a survey on 300,000 inmates who used firearms in their crime and found that 97% of the firearms used in their crimes had come from the black market.
FAKE NEWS: Because tolerance — The same far left media that ran with the junk Buzzfeed report on Friday is now smearing a group of pro-life, Catholic high school kids in MAGA hats who were in DC for the March for Life. They had gathered in front of the Lincoln Memorial and were chanting school cheers while they waited for the rest of their group to arrive.
Some Native American guy decided they were offensive and got all up in one boy’s face, screaming at him and beating his drum. On Saturday, the fake news media blamed the students, saying they had harassed the Native American man. But video of the event shows the exact opposite was true.
Even worse, the liberal fascist mob doxxed the high school boy that the drummer singled out. One of them even offered a bounty to anyone who would punch the boy in the genitals. (Dox: release personal details.)
One of the students has written to the news, begging them to tell the truth.
DERPOCRATS: Occasional-Cortex strikes again. — In this video, she expresses Xtreme Dudgeon that “Mitch” isn’t in any of the places he’s supposed to be. Except, he was in the place he was supposed to be where she didn’t go. Oops. Plus, you know, “Alex from the Bronx” (or is it “Sandy from Yorktown”?), did you by any chance NOTICE that YOUR leader, Nancy Pelosi, was all set to go to EUROPE FOR A WEEK (until Trump canceled her military flight)?
BEN SHAPIRO: Correcting a self-proclaimed socialist who doesn’t know what he’s talking about — The guy says he rejects state socialism, but supports worker cooperatives. Shapiro says they are not an example of socialism, because they are voluntary. IOW, they are capitalism at its finest.
BABYLON BEE: Least masculine society in human history decides masculinity is a growing threat — “As society becomes increasingly dominated by nerds, hipsters, and computer programmers, people have fixated on what they think is our biggest problem: masculinity.” I remember reading somewhere that, rather than strive for balance, societies often demonize the one thing that is least present.
