Cold, cloudy, chance of rain…. meh.
They say a bad day fishing is better than a good day working. I wouldn’t know…I’ve never had a bad day fishing.
added by bluebird of bitterness:
It’s cold, gray, and rainy outside. The last two days have been close to perfect. All I can look forward to is my friend and I having a guide taking us out on Lake Delavan, Wisconsin on Friday where I’m looking forward to my first case of boat-butt with a side order of cap hair. The guide said he caught 40 crappies in two hours Tuesday. Hopefully we can replicate that.
OK, enough of the fun stuff. Time to get serious.
WaPo Pleads With Obama to ‘Rethink’ Wall Street Payout for New Speech
THERE’S ABOUT AS MUCH CHANCE OF A DEMOCRAT NOT GRABBING ALL THE EASY MONEY HE CAN AS THERE IS OF THEM STOPPING BREATHING.
Remember when candidate Barack Obama told Americans he did not run for president “to help out a bunch of fat cat bankers on Wall Street?”
Eight years after Obama made those remarks, he seems to have no qualms accepting $400,000 from Wall Street for an upcoming speech at a conference run by Cantor Fitzgerald LP.
Donald Trump Will Order Interior Review on National Monuments Designated by Clinton and Obama
IT’S ABOUT TIME HE ROLLED BACK THE MASSIVE LAND GRABS TO STOP ENERGY EXPLORATION ON PUBLIC LAND.
The review would specifically address Obama’s Bear Ears designation within 45 days in an interim review, with a final review scheduled for 120 days, according to Zinke.
The Bears Ears monument is 1.35 million acres — part of the over 553 million acres of land and sea designated as a monument during Obama’s presidency. Zinke also mentioned a review of the Grand Staircase monument (1,700,000 acres) instituted by Clinton. Clinton added 5.7 million acres of land, while George W. Bush designated 214 millions acres, which included acres of water.
But Zinke specifically mentioned two controversial monuments in Utah, including the more recent designation of Bears Ears monument by Obama.
MY FAVORITE STORY OF THE DAY
Wild boars overrun Islamic State position, kill 3 militants
MUZZIES WON’T TOUCH PORK? WANNA SEE PORK GET EVEN?
Three Islamic State militants setting up an ambush in a bitterly contested area of northern Iraq were killed by a herd of stampeding boars, local leaders say.
Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and supervisor of anti-ISIS forces, told The Times of London the militants were hiding on the edge of a field about 50 miles southwest of Kirkuk when the boars overwhelmed them Sunday. Five other militants were injured, al-Assi said. He said the group was poised to attack a band of local tribesmen who had fled to nearby mountains since militants seized the town of Hawija three years ago.

Sponsors include Vice President Pence; Secretaries Betsy DeVos, Ben Carson, Sonny Perdue, Rick Perry, Tom Price and Jeff Sessions; EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt and CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
Artist creates mural of Michelle Obama and nobody’s happy
LOOK! A PORTRAIT OF CLEOFATASSRA
Shortly after Devins finished the mural last Friday, criticism began bubbling up online. People accused him of copying the image from Rhode Island art student Gelila Mesfin, who had posted a nearly identical portrait of Michelle Obama on Instagram last year.
“How can you go on record and say you designed this… this is so disheartening and so disrespectful on so many levels…” Mesfin added. “It’s one thing to share or even profit from someone’s work but to claim it as yours is just wrong!”
Nets Censor BLOCKBUSTER Expose on Obama’s Hidden Iran Deal Secrets
Politico senior investigative reporter Josh Meyer authored a more than 7300-word bombshell showing that Obama secretly released 21 Iranian prisoners (not the seven originally claimed), men who were deeply involved in Iran’s missile and nuclear program. On Tuesday morning, despite a combined eight hours of air time, ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today avoided the topic.
In his lengthy and well-sourced Politico story, Meyer detailed how the administration hid the identities of the Iranian prisoners who were being released:
The biggest fish, though, was Seyed Abolfazl Shahab Jamili, who had been charged with being part of a conspiracy that from 2005 to 2012 procured thousands of parts with nuclear applications for Iran via China. That included hundreds of U.S.-made sensors for the uranium enrichment centrifuges in Iran whose progress had prompted the nuclear deal talks in the first place.

Man Refuses To Accept He’s No Longer Black After DNA Test Results
IT’S SIMPLE; NO ONE OF MIXED RACE WILL EVER, EVER ACKNOWLEDGE BEING WHITE. THAT WON’T GET YOU INTO SCHOOLS OR JOBS AHEAD OF A MORE QUALIFIED WHITE PERSON BECAUSE YOU CLAIM TO BE BLACK. PRIME EXAMPLE: THE PRICK WHO JUST LEFT THE WHITE HOUSE.
Bernard walked into the test identifying himself as “black.” He informed the professors ahead of time that despite having a white mother, his mother raised him to identify as a black man.
Bernard’s test, however, revealed that he is only one percent African/Asian. Over 90 percent of his ancestry is European, while he is five percent Middle Eastern and two percent Hispanic.
Bernard completely rejected the results of the test, saying they caused problems in his family.
Judge Blocks President Trump’s Move To Cut Off Funding To “Sanctuary Cities”
A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities.
U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court.
WHENEVER THE COURTS RULED AGAINST OBAMA HE JUST SAID “F*CK OFF” AND DID WHATEVER HE WANTED. NOBODY EVER STOPPED HIM.
Judge donated $200k to Obama. Yeah, no conflict of interest here.
By what authority can a Federal Judge overrule a duly elected President?
He was also one of President Obama’s top fundraisers, a bundler who raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him

New Study Calls EPA’s Labeling Of CO2 A Pollutant ‘Totally False’
APPARENTLY 5 SUPREME COURT JUSTICES MISSED 9TH GRADE SCIENCE CLASS WHERE WE LEARNED CARBON DIOXIDE IS A TRACE ELEMENT, NOT A POLLUTANT!
The study claims to have “proven that it is all but certain that EPA’s basic claim that CO2 is a pollutant is totally false,” according to a press statement put out by Drs. Jim Wallace, John Christy, and Joe D’Aleo. Wallace, Christy and D’Aleo — a statistician, a climatologist and meteorologist, respectively — released a study claiming to invalidate EPA’s 2009 endangerment finding, which allowed the agency to regulate CO2 as a pollutant.
Former Obama Official: Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats To Influence Policy
COLOR ME SHOCKED
Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama’s administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion.
“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data.
AFTER A 3 MONTH TOUR DE FORCE OF HOW TO SPONGE OFF RICH PEOPLE LIKE RICHARD BRANSON AND THE LATE MARLON BRANDO, BARACK H. OBAMA WILL NOW DELIVER A BRAVURA PERFORMANCE AS THE ULTIMATE HYPOCRITE TO THE MAVENS OF WALL STREET
Obama to net $400K for Wall Street speech: report
The former president’s reported speaking fee is nearly twice the price commanded by Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
Obama reappeared on the public stage Monday, making his first public remarks since leaving the White House at the future site of his presidential library.
The former president did not mention President Trump or offer political commentary during his appearance at the University of Chicago.
I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS ASSHAT ACTUALLY SAID THIS:
Josh Earnest: Obama will jump in and criticize the new administration if Trump crosses any, er, “red lines”
I know what you’re thinking because I’m thinking it too, as is everyone who worked for the Obama administration on foreign policy: “Since when does Obama enforce red lines?”
Actually I suspect you’ll find him enforcing lots of moral “red lines” in the future, now that all that’s required of him is giving a speech to an adoring media peppered with lots of that’s-not-who-we-ares. That was 80 percent of his presidency but it’ll be 99 percent of his retirement.
Enjoy the irony of Earnest flagging as an example of a “red line” any potential efforts by Team Trump to start rounding up and deporting DREAMers. I … don’t think you need to worry, Josh. Things change but DACA stays the same!
Obama Uses Race Card To Take Shot At Hillary Clinton
I’M PRETTY SURE THESE TWO MEGALOMANIACS HAVE DESPISED EACH OTHER FROM THE GET-GO
Obama was telling the panel about how he visited with at-risk youth on Sunday ahead of his appearance at the University of Chicago.
“If the six of you had been in that conversation, you would have come away not saying ‘these are some thugs or super-predators that I can’t relate to.’ You’d actually say, ‘man, if I had gone through what they went through I’m not sure how things would have worked out me either,’” Obama told the panel.
Obama choice of the term “super-predator” is an apparent reference to comments that Hilary Clinton made in 1996 that caused a considerable backlash in both of the Clintons’ presidential campaigns.
SPEAKING OF SUPER PREDATORS (THAT’S CALLED A SEGUE):
Up to 60 Teens Swarm San Francisco Commuter Train, Robbing and Beating Passengers
Officials say the robbery was planned like a Blitzkrieg with the teens swarming the station, forcing the traindoors open, rushing into the train and robbing passengers, and then disappearing into an East Oakland neighborhood — all in a matter of minutes.
The teens exited the train and disappeared into the surrounding East Oakland neighborhood.
Police will not release the video or still shots of the surveillance for fear that some of the suspects are minors
Whenever someone complains about the media blackout on the racial makeup of criminals and thugs, the response is usually something like “it’s not relevant to the story” or “we don’t want to upset the local minority community by appearing to single out criminals.”
My response is always: How can the race of the perpetrator not be relevant to the story? Or the race of the victim for that matter.
3 arrested after mob attacks officers at California college event
As the officers got out of the car, two officers were attacked by several people and beaten on the ground
THANKS TO BROTHER BARACK, THEY AIN’T SCARED OF THE PO-LEECE NO ‘MO
Three men were arrested following an attack on Davis police officers who encountered a group of people blocking traffic on a busy roadway during Saturday’s Picnic Day at UC Davis.
The annual campus open house has become known in recent years for violence and drunken mayhem, mainly on the streets of the normally quiet college town.
A hostile group quickly surrounded the vehicle. Several people began yelling threats at the officers in the car, and one person pretended he was pulling a gun on the officers, the news release said.
As the officers got out of the car and began to identify themselves as police, two officers were attacked by several people and beaten on the ground. Police reported that the officers were kicked and punched in the head, and one officer was struck on the side of the head with a bottle.
As they were being assaulted, the officers could see people in the crowd taking video of the attack on their cell phones, according to the news release.
I’M MAKING AN EFFORT NOT TO POST A BUNCH OF THESE STUPID PICTURES WITH EVERY POST. YOU’RE WELCOME.
It always irks me when liberals piss and moan about how mean republicans are to kids and old people. It used to work like a charm every election cycle but a lot of plain, good-hearted working people are getting tired of this nonsense.
Let’s be clear…THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PRO-LIFE DEMOCRAT. The party hacks have made that painfully clear.
Dick Durbin, Tom Perez To 28 Percent Of Dems Who Oppose Abortion: Get In Line Or Get Out
“I am committed to women’s rights under the law, reproductive rights certainly, and our party is [committed],” Durbin said in an appearance on CNN. “We’ve made that part of our platform and position for a long, long time. I know within the ranks of the Democratic Party there are those who see that differently on a personal basis, but when it comes to the policy position, I think we need to be clear and unequivocal.”
Nancy Pelosi Thinks There’s Room In The Democratic Party For Pro Life Democrats
Sen. Ben Sasse Gives Perfect Response To DNC Chair’s Claim That He “Fights For Little Guy”
Keith Ellison Blames Obama For Democratic Failures
“Your legacy is not a building that he’s going to construct in Chicago housing his presidential papers,” Ellison continued. “His legacy is the work he’s done which I believe is tremendous. But given we lost a lot of statehouse seats, governorships, secretary of states, his true legacy is in danger and I think he can’t say that he wasn’t part of those losses. Who else, right?”
Cummings disagrees with Ellison on Obama, says all Democrats to blame for current woes
Ellison argued that Obama should have worked harder campaigning for congressional elections.
A LOT OF DEMOCRATS DIDN’T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM
Look Who Went Into The Bowl Of Stupid
Diamond and Silk: ‘My president never says anything that’s stupid’
Remember Bart Stupak? He and a small group of pro-life democrats didn’t want to vote for Obamacare because of federal abortion funding. It would not have passed without them. Had he stuck to his principles, he would have gotten tens of millions in donations from grateful Americans. In the end, he caved and this disaster passed. And the next election cycle he was summarily booted out of office along with all of the others. All the democrats who voted for O-care got something in return. Which led me to the conclusion there are no moderate democrats. They just have different price tags.
It would be an improvement in the conversation if the democrats had anything to obsess about except race. No facts, no ideas, no desire to work together. Just throw the race accusations around because they have nothing else. Frankly I’m convinced that their ham-handed tactics played a large part in Donald Trump becoming president. They don’t see it and they can’t accept it.

Maxine Waters Slated to Pay Daughter Another $108K From Campaign Funds
Karen Waters already collected nearly $650,000 to run the operation
THIS WALKING FELONY IS AS CORRUPT AS SHE IS DERANGED. SHE’S FUNNELED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO HER FAMILY. AND HER VOTERS DON’T CARE. THEY EXPECT THEIR REPRESENTATIVES TO BE AS CROOKED AS A DOG’S HIND LEG. THEY JUST KEEP ELECTING THEM.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) is slated to pay her daughter another $108,000 for running a lucrative campaign operation that pulls in hundreds of thousands of dollars each election cycle, FEC filings show.
Karen Waters, the daughter of Rep. Waters, collected nearly $650,000 to date for running the operation for her mother’s campaign.
Karen is in charge of a “slate mailer” operation for Citizens for Waters, Rep. Waters’ federal campaign committee. Slate mailers, or endorsement mailers, involve a candidate or political group paying for the endorsement of another politician.
Professor: Blacks ‘Screwed’ because Whites in Charge of Government
Remember when stereotyping people by skin color was frowned upon?
CtH: Remember when a Black was in charge of the government and did NOTHING to help Blacks?
HERE’S A THOUGHT… LET’S TAKE AWAY YOUR WELFARE, FOOD STAMPS, SECTION 8, FREE MEDICAL, AND THE THOUSANDS YOU GET AT TAX TIME AS A REWARD FOR BREEDING LIKE RODENTS. THEN YOU’D FIND OUT WHAT “SCREWED” IS.
Recently, at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, an assistant professor from the University of Pittsburgh had a political message to deliver to the students. Dr. Shanara Reid-Brinkley’s presentation was called this long-worded title: “Anti-Blackness and the Political: Millennials, Black Intellectuals, and the Re-shaping of American Politics.”
In her talks, she suggested that blacks had less liberty in America now that President Donald Trump had replaced Barack Obama in the Oval Office.
CtH: Professor, please point to a SINGLE ACTUAL EXAMPLE of this, please. I’ll wait.
‘Icon’ Colin Kaepernick Named To Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People List
KAEPERNICK WAS ADOPTED AND RAISED BY A WHITE FAMILY. HE WAS GIVEN THE BEST OF EVERYTHING AND BLESSED WITH FOOTBALL TALENT. LAST YEAR HE CAUSED A STIR BY REFUSING TO STAND FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. HE RODE THE BENCH MOST OF THE YEAR, WHINING HIS RACIST CRAP WHILE MAKING $11 MILLION. VIEWERSHIP OF THE NFL FELL ALMOST 20%. OFFICIALS BLAMED A LOT OF THINGS, BUT NEVER WENT NEAR THE FACT THAT EVEN PEOPLE WHO CARE NOTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL WERE SICKENED BY THIS RACIST CRAP. HE WAS RELEASED BY THE 49ERS AND NO NFL TEAM WANTS TO SIGN HIM AND HIS HORSESHIT ATTITUDE.
The disgruntled quarterback’s biological mother Heidi Russo criticized her son for failing to stand for the National Anthem in a pre-season game against Green Bay last August because he was protesting “black oppression” in the United States.
“There’s ways to make change w/o disrespecting & bringing shame to the very country & family who afforded you so many blessings,” she messaged on her Twitter account. The biracial Kaepernick was given up for adoption at birth and raised by white parents.

Five Killed, 26 Wounded In Chicago Shootings Over The Weekend
OBAMA IS COMING OFF A THREE-MONTH VACATION IN THE SOUTH SEAS TO MAKE A SPEECH IN CHICAGO TODAY ON HOW TO BE A COMMUNITY ORGANIZER. MAYBE THEY’LL HOLD THEIR FIRE WHILE THEIR MESSIAH IS IN TOWN… BUT DON’T COUNT ON IT.
CtH: Blacks were SO enlightened and uplifted by having a black president that they stopped killing each other for 8 years. Oh wait. No, they didn’t.
This weekend’s shootings bring the city’s toll so far this year to 973 people shot and 168 fatalities.
The latest shooting victims added to Chicago’s statistics include a 21-year-old male who was shot in the head in the Roseland neighborhood on the far South Side of Chicago. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Trump Personally Works Deal To Rescue American Aid Worker Held For 3 Years In Egypt
WILL TRUMP GET ANY CREDIT FOR THIS? DON’T BE SILLY.
Donald Trump’s administration has secured the freedom of an Egyptian-US charity worker who was detained for nearly three years in Cairo.
Aya Hijazi, 30, was flown back to the US on Thursday night with her family on a US government jet.
Ms Hijazi, whose charity cared for street children, faced child abuse charges branded false by rights groups.
Her release was reportedly agreed before Mr Trump met Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi this month.

THIS STORY IS FROM MARCH OF LAST YEAR. OBAMA NEVER GOT HIM FREED BECAUSE HE REALLY DIDN’T CARE. HE DID, HOWEVER, SWAP 5 TOP AL QUAEDA COMMANDERS FOR A DESERTER, SO HE HAD THAT GOING FOR HIM.
Students vote to give blacks free tuition at Western Kentucky University
The school’s Student Government Association passed a resolution by 19-10 supporting slavery reparations for black students in the form of free tuition and free access to the public Bowling Green campus.
The resolution also recommends that the university create a task force to “assess the feasibility of test-optional admissions and geographically-weighted admissions,” claiming that some standardized testing poses a disadvantage for needy students and perpetuates inequality and “white supremacy,” The Bowling Green Daily News reported.
“We demand reparations for the systemic denial of access to high quality educational opportunities in the form of full and free access for all black people (including undocumented, currently and formerly incarcerated people to Western Kentucky University),” the resolution reads, according to the Daily News.

But allegedly promotes LGBT causes in class.
Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit litigation group that promotes religious freedom, in a letter to Hillsborough County Public Schools Superintendent Jeff Eakins detailed math teacher Lora Jane Riedas’ actions.
The letter claims Riedas told at least three students they could not wear their Christian crosses.
“We write on behalf of parents of children in the classroom of teacher Lora Jane Riedas, a math teacher at Riverview High School, who report that Ms. Riedas has prohibited at least three children from wearing Christian cross necklaces in her classroom, claiming on occasion that they are ‘gang symbols,’ “ wrote Liberty Counsel.
