KEEPING CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS: A group called the American Nativity Scene, with the backing of the Thomas More Society for legal counsel, has been placing and, when necessary, defending the placement of privately-funded nativity scenes in public places all across America.

Launched in 2012, their primary mission has been to get a nativity display within or directly outside state capitol buildings in every state across America. This year, they added six new state capitols – Florida, Hawaii, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio and South Carolina – bringing the total to 27.

IMPEACHMENT: [10:00]Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Speaker Pelosi seems to think she can dictate the rules of a Senate impeachment trial.

PELOSI: [:56] Yeah, that really cleared things up for us /sarc

Reporter says, “… say it looks like you’re playing games if you hold on to these articles of impeachment for too long.”

Nancy says [waving hands around], “We uh we are we half uh half … when we bring the bill … just so you know there is a bill made in order by the rules committee that we can call up at any uh time in order to send it over to the Senate and to have uh provisions in there to pay for the provisions for the impeachment … and then the next step, the k uh k … [wags body] … whatever you want to call it, the the trial [works mouth, smacks microphone with hand] … that is where you put the managers. I’m not prepared to put the managers and that bill yet because we don’t know the arena that we are in. Frankly, I don’t care what the Republicans say. Any other questions? Not about impeachment. I’ve said all I’m gonna say.”

The only sentence she says with confidence is “I don’t care what the Republicans say.” Yes, Nancy. That has been abundantly clear for decades.

2019_12 23 Trump the storm

IMPEACHMENT: “Now that the build-up to impeachment is behind him, expect Trump to release the hounds of hell on his deep state persecutors. His daughter Ivanka says ‘Impeachment energized her father and his 63 million supporters’. Welcome to cold anger.

“Democrats have poked the New York City junkyard dog one too many times and the dog has bared his teeth. Democrats will rue the day they chose to abdicate their Constitutional legislative duties in favor of an illegal and unnecessary persecution of a president chosen by the American people.

“Let the reckoning begin.” – Brian C Joondeph, MD

IMPEACHMENT: [10:54] – Trump and his supporters should wear impeachment with pride. Excellent rant by Steve Hilton, one of my favorites.

The second half features Senator Rounds talking about what could happen after the House finally delivers.

The latest one drew only 6.17 million viewers.

MILITARY: [2:44]Trump has signed a bill that allows military members to sue for medical malpractice by military doctors. There are limitations, but still, it’s long overdue!

JUDICIAL WATCH: JW is suing Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the House Intelligence Committee for abuse of power in obtaining and publishing the private phone records of Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, Congressman Devin Nunes, journalist John Solomon, and other American citizens.

CALIFORNIA: [5:33]FOX Business’ Kennedy discusses a new California bill, AB 5, and calls it ‘heartless’ because of how it will impact freelancers. Capitalist Pig hedge fund’s Jonathan Hoenig also weighs in about government inserting itself into the relationship between employers and employees. [She’s a riot!]

TLAIB: [1:46]She actually videotaped an anti-Semitic Hanukkah message. What a _itch.

AUSTRALIA: Good for him! This is how a national leader should be thinking. – Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Monday rejected Swedish climate worrier Greta Thunberg and her gratuitous advice, declaring he was “not here to impress people overseas.”

Australia and the Australian Government will set our policies based on Australia’s national interests, on what Australia needs to do,” Mr Morrison told reporters in the rural center of Mudgee.

That’s where I keep my focus. It’s not for me to make commentaries on what those outside of Australia think that Australia should do. We’ll do in Australia what we think is right for Australia. And that has always been my guiding principle.”

WAR ON WOMEN: Anita”, a biological male who identifies as a transgender woman, is suing after being denied entry into a female beauty pageant in Oregon which limits contestants to “natural born females.”

He “feels invalidated.” Oh boo-frickin’-hoo.

Here’s an idea. How about beauty pageant winners sue a few drag queen contests for barring them because they’re not “natural born men”?

Cuz, you know, turn about and karma and stuff.

CELEBRITY JACKASSERY: During an interview on civility in politics, Robert De Niro smacked his hands together and says, “I’d like to see a bag of sh*t right in his face. Hit him right in the face like that. He needs to be humiliated. He needs to be confronted and humiliated.”

De Niro compared the Trump presidency to being in an abusive relationship. “There’s not one thing about this person that has been redeeming. He’s a low life. He’s not a pig. Pigs have dignity. He has no dignity. He has nothing. He’s a disgrace to the human race.”

GRAMMY NOTES: My little granddaughter told me, “Grammy, I love the blanket you made me SO MUCH! I took it to school for nap time and I think of you when I use it.”

  2. “This Christmas, enjoy some real face time” – nice, and I get it, but, but, but:

    Those cells provided us with music for our family dinner, and took the family group photos and other pix and vids for memory lane, and helped look up trivia and answers in games and discussions, and texts with friends and family not present were shared with those who were present, sharing our family photos, and even sharing a few fun Christmas memes. Somehow still left plenty of time for chatting, dining, and playing with the grandbabies.


    Nancy (transcript): “Any other questions? Not about impeachment. I’ve said all I’m gonna say.”

    What I heard: “Any other quezzions? Nawdo disshevin. I shed zis is it.”

    Nawdo disshevin = I think she was trying for “Not on this subject”?


    Formal style guide says the recommended usage is “close friend of Jeffrey Epstein’s, Robert De Niro.”


    Homeless dog curled up with baby Jesus – ah, so this is what shepherds visiting the newborn child meant. [Forehead smack] Of course! It all makes sense now.

    But, but, “no one had the heart to shoo him away?????” Color and size and cuteness, that’s just about what our dear departed last dog looked like when he first showed up at our door. I sure hope someone stepped up to rescue that good pup.

      Cells … very good points. 🙂

      Nancy (transcript) … ROFLLL much more accurate! It was weird listening to Clinton-era Nancy lecturing Republicans about the evils of impeachment, not because of what she said (Republicans could just quote her!), but because she was so COHERENT. I just get so bored with people who don’t know when to leave a party.

      Formal style guide says the recommended usage is “close friend of Jeffrey Epstein’s, Robert De Niro.” – Seriously? OH EWWWWWWW.
