Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!

I have a real bad feeling about this. There dwells within my breast a real skepticism any time democrats agree with ANYTHING the president does. They convinced George H.W. Bush that David Souter was a constitutionalist judge and he was confirmed handily. SURPRISE! He turned out to be just another liberal hack. As Ann Coulter once said: ‘Why is it NO judge appointed by a democrat has ever disappointed them?’ Because they have a huge roster of leftist judges perfectly willing to replace the rule of law with their own personal opinion.

President Trump has chosen Christopher Wray to be the next FBI Director.
Trump FBI Pick Poised For Confirmation
Christopher Wray impresses even Democratic senators
Christopher Wray, President Trump’s nominee to replace James Comey as FBI director, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee at his confirmation hearing on Wednesday. He performed so well that key Democratic members of the committee such as Senator Dianne Feinstein said they were impressed and were inclined to vote for his confirmation. Senator Al Franken, a chronic skeptic of anything coming from the Trump administration, said to the nominee, “I think you had a good hearing today, and I wish you luck.”

On Gorsuch and Such… Day Two

The Democrat clown show lasted more than 11 hours yesterday.  As a public service, I’m posting an assembly of short clips of stalwarts such as Feinstein, Franken, Durbin, Coons, and especially Senator Pat “Depends” Leahy. Rush gave him that nickname because the first time he was on the Senate Intelligence Committee (how’s THAT for an oxymoron?), he purposely made Reagan’s plans to attack Libya public. He was removed from his committee assignment then, but as is always the case with pestilence, he returned. Watch the clip of this bald fraud and see if you can tell whether or not he’d been drinking or at least hung over. “Mumbles” would be a more appropriate moniker.

FNN: Sen. Leahy Asks Gorsuch About GOP Treatment of Merrick Garland, Obama’s Supreme Court Pick

They did their best to trap Judge Gorsuch, smear him or sully his record. What was first and foremost, apparently, was that they wanted a promise from him not to try to overturn Roe v. Wade.  Abortion is the sacrament to the religion of Liberalism and must be protected at all costs.  There were light moments ,and you must see what his obituary would be. Any senator who votes against this very good man should be beaten severely with their own bank book.

Timely new tv ad ‘The Ginsburg rule’ destroys Dems about to pound Judge Neil Gorsuch

“Democrats are attacking Judge Neil Gorsuch because he won’t promise to support their political agenda,” a voiceover in the ad begins. Then in a “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” moment, the ad pivots to the 1993 confirmation hearings of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, during which she refused to answers posed to her by senators — in excess of 70 times.

Her repeated refusal prompted then-Sen. Joe Biden to come to her support.  “You not only have a right to choose what you will answer and not answer, but in my view you should not answer a question of what your view will be,” he told her during the course of the confirmation proceedings.

Gorsuch Makes Minced Meat of Dick Durbin’s Gotcha Attempt

Senators on the Judiciary Committee took turns spending thirty minutes grilling Gorsuch.

When it was Sen. Durbin’s (D-IL) turn to bat, he flamed out. Gloriously.

“Do you believe that there are ever situations where the cost of maternity leave to an employer can justify an employer asking only female applicants and not male applicants about family plans?” Sen. Durbin asked.

To which Gorsuch sternly replied, “Those are not my words and I would never have said them.”

“I didn’t say that,” said Durbin.

“I asked you if you agreed with this statement.”

“And I’m telling you I don’t,” Gorsuch scowled.

Dem Senator Tries, Fails To Pin Down Gorsuch On Hobby Lobby Ruling

The case, which Gorsuch heard as an appeals judge and which was later heard by the Supreme Court, asked if for-profit corporations could bring claims under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA).  In this instance, the owners of Hobby Lobby said they had a religious objection to providing certain forms of contraception to their employees. Gorsuch ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, attracting criticism from Coons.

WATCH:

Coons asked Gorsuch why he ruled in favor of allowing for-profit corporations to bring claims under the RFRA.

Gorsuch responded that the law as drafted did not distinguish between natural persons and corporations, and that corporate personhood was a well-established principle of law. He further explained that the government conceded in that case that a non-profit corporation could bring a RFRA claim.

Coons rebutted that it was a “big leap” to take those facts and apply them to for-profit corporations.

“The position you’re advocating is a fine position,” Gorsuch responded. “It’s a respectable position. It’s a good position. It was adopted by precisely two justices of the Supreme Court.”

Gorsuch was referring to the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case. Two of the four dissenters in the case, Justices Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, declined to join the portion of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s opinion, which held for-profit corporations or their owners cannot bring claims under the RFRA.  Only Ginsburg and Justice Sonia Sotomayor have taken the position RFRA doesn’t apply to corporate entities.

Coons then pivoted away from Hobby Lobby and asked generally about judicial deference to the beliefs of religious objectors.

What Gorsuch Would Want In His Obituary

The 49-year-old jurist then produced an at-times emotional two-minute monologue of what he would like his obituary to to be. It’s an assignment he gives his students at the end of each semester, Gorsuch told Sasse.

“They hate it. They think it’s corny. Well, it might be a little corny,” Gorsuch said with a hint of self-deprecation.

He continued:

“And people want to be remembered for the kindnesses they showed other people, by and large. What I try to point out is, it’s not how big your bank account balance is, nobody ever puts that in their draft obituary, or that they billed the most hours, or that they won the most cases. It’s how they treated other people along the way. And for me, it’s the words I read yesterday from Increase Sumner’s tombstone. And that means as a person, I’d like to be remembered as a good dad, a good husband, kind and mild in private life, dignified and firm in public life. And I have no illusions that I’ll be remembered for very long. If Byron White is as nearly forgotten as he is now, as he said he would be, I have no illusions, I won’t last five minutes; that’s as it should be. The great joy in life, Shaw said, is devoting yourself to a cause you deem mighty before you are thrown on the scrap heap. An independent judiciary in this country, I can carry that baton for as long as I can carry it, and I have no illusions I’m going to last as long as you suggest, and that’ll be good enough for me.”

Franken, my dear, I don’t give a damn

From Stilton’s new site @ http://stiltonsplace.blogspot.com/

2017_03-03-franken-by-stilton

“We don’t know all the details of the accusations against Attorney General Jeff Sessions because, and we state this firmly and for the record, we don’t give a rat’s ass.

“For Sessions to have taken part in a Russian conspiracy to elect Donald Trump, there would have to have been a Russian conspiracy to elect Donald Trump. Not only is there no evidence of this, but the whole premise makes no sense.

“Whereas Trump was simply free-associating about the possibility of a better relationship with the Kremlin while on the stump, Hillary quietly approved the sale of 20% of America’s uranium reserves to the Russians. Moreover, with her bungled Russian “reset” program as Secretary of State, Hillary had already clearly demonstrated to Putin that, if elected, she would be far easier to manipulate than the wildcard Trump.

“We’re hoping that Jeff Sessions stands tough against the current accusations and that Trump stands behind him. The “Russian Conspiracy” is nonsense of a high order…and the last resort of a failing and flailing political party.”

Cherry Picking in November

Still so much left to sift through. What a week it’s been. Here are some things that I thought you might enjoy.

Back to the future: Howard Dean to run for DNC chairman
howarddean
THE DEMOCRATS KEEP RECYCLING THEIR OLD LOSERS.
‘REJOICE FOR THE SCREAMER LIVETH’….(THAT’S CALLED A PLAY ON WORDS)
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, who led the DNC from 2005 to 2009, said Thursday via Twitter that he wants the job back when current interim chief Donna Brazile leaves in spring.
“The dems need organization and focus on the young. Need a fifty State strategy and tech rehab. I am in for chairman again,” he tweeted.

‘Melania liked Mrs. O a lot’: First Lady’s tea with her successor is kept behind closed doors (despite warm public welcome Bushes gave the Obamas) and photo is only released after media pressure
Michelle Obama met her successor this afternoon, greeting Melania Trump at the White House when she arrived and hosting her for tea
Press were barred from covering the visit that coincided with their husbands’ 90-minute meeting in the Oval Office
The Trumps arrived at the White House via a private entrance on the south side of the building. They left the same way they came
A photo of the women chatting popped up online hours later, after the White House was pressured to release it
In 2008 President George W. Bush and his wife Laura eagerly greeted the Obamas on the South Lawn – and reporters were allowed to cover it
I’D BET MONEY THAT MELANIA WAS GRACIOUS AND FRIENDLY AND THE GHETTO TRASH WANTED TO CLAW HER EYES OUT
WHAT STRUCK ME WAS THAT ALL THESE DESIGNERS MADE CLOTHES FOR MOOCH IN SIZE XXXL;MELANIA COULD MAKE SACKCLOTH LOOK STUNNING

Chelsea Clinton being groomed to run for Congress
SHE’S EVERY BIT AS QUALIFIED AS HER MOTHER
GREEDY: CHECK
ARROGANT: CHECK
PATHETIC LIAR: CHECK
UGLY AS HELL: CHECK
LIVING OFF SLICK WILLY’S REPUTATION: CHECK
Chelsea could run for the seat in NYC’s 17th Congressional District once Lowey, a respected, 79-year-old career politician with nearly 30 years in office, decides to retire, we have exclusively learned.
Lowey’s district includes parts of Rockland and Westchester counties and, conveniently, Chappaqua, the Clinton family home base
SHE COMES FROM A LONG LINE OF CARPETBAGGERS

Experts Question If Clinton Foundation Will Survive

WHEN, OH WHEN WILL WE BE RID OF THIS NEST OF VERMIN?
The months ahead could determine what kind of future, if any, the Clinton Foundation can have as Congress and the new administration of President-elect Donald Trump take what is certain to be a tough look the ethical and legal issues that have swirled for years around the troubled charity

Memo to Trump: Exploit your win!
The protests, riots and violence that have attended his triumph in city after city should only serve to steel his resolve.
As for promptings that he “reach out” and “reassure” those upset by his victory, and trim or temper his agenda to pacify them, Trump should reject the poisoned chalice. This is the same old con.

A partial agenda: First, he should ignore any importunings by President Obama to permit passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership in a lame-duck session – and let the trade deal sink by year’s end.

On Jan. 20, he should have vetted and ready to nominate to the high court a brilliant constitutionalist and strict constructionist.
With a new education secretary, he should announce White House intent to work for repeal of Common Core and announce the introduction of legislation to put federal resources behind the charter schools that have proven to be a godsend to inner-city black children.

Trump should announce a date soon for repeal and replacement of Obamacare and introduction of his new tax-and-trade legislation to bring back manufacturing and create American jobs.

Donald Trump said in his campaign that that this is America’s last chance. If we lose this one, he said, we lose the country.
The president-elect should ignore his more cautious counselors and act with the urgency of his declared beliefs.

IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING WHERE DIAMOND AND SILK WERE:
CAN YOU IMAGINE THESE TWO AS PRESS SECRETARY?

Trump Picks Top Climate Skeptic to Lead EPA Transition
Choosing Myron Ebell means Trump plans to drastically reshape climate policies
Ebell is a well-known and polarizing figure in the energy and environment realm. His participation in the EPA transition signals that the Trump team is looking to drastically reshape the climate policies the agency has pursued under the Obama administration. Ebell’s role is likely to infuriate environmentalists and Democrats but buoy critics of Obama’s climate rules.

Mitchell Shocked by Photo of Trump and Obama Together: ‘Good Lord’

“That is the moment, Donald Trump in the Oval Office with President Obama,” Mitchell said.

[CtH: Just a guess here that if this were 2008, she would have said, “President-Elect Obama in the Oval Office with George Bush.”]

She continued to report on the historic moment but let her emotions go and appeared shocked before ending her comments.

“But, good lord, that is an image a lot of people did not expect to see,” Mitchell said.

President-Elect Trump Saluted by Firefighters as He Leaves New York for Meeting with President Obama

President-Elect Donald Trump flew out of New York City’s LaGuardia Airport Thursday morning aboard his private jet Trump Force One. As the plane taxied for takeoff firefighters paid their respects to Trump with a traditional water cannon salute. Nearby, a group of firefighters and officials enthusiastically waved to Trump as the plane rolled by them.

FIRST RESPONDERS WILL BE TREATED A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY UNDER TRUMP
Trump calls slain cop’s widow to offer condolences

OF ALL THE POLICE OFFICERS SLAUGHTERED ON OBAMA’S WATCH HE SENT REPRESENTATIVES TO THE FUNERALS OF THE CRIMINALS BUT NEVER A COP… EVER.

President-elect Donald Trump called slain NYPD Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo’s widow Thursday morning and personally extended his “condolences” to her on the day that thousands of police officers paid tribute to the fallen Finest at his funeral.

“I’m very sorry I cannot be there with you today. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time,” Trump told the grieving woman, according to a source.

“I want to express my condolences from me and my family.”

Tuozzolo, a married father of two, was shot and killed last week by 35-year-old ex-con Manuel Rosales. Tuozzolo had been responding to a report of a break-in.

UAW seeks to join Trump in effort to dismantle NAFTA
For years, the UAW has railed against NAFTA and other free trade agreements while Republicans have generally supported free trade deals. This year, Trump turned Republican politics upside down.

IF HE SIGNS THE XL PIPELINE DEAL, WHICH I THINK HE WILL, HE’LL PUT MORE THAN 30,000 SKILLED UNION TRADES MEN BACK TO WORK.  HE CAN MAKE GREAT INROADS INTO THE MONOLITH THAT IS THE UNION VOTE.

Clinton Couldn’t Win Over White Women
But they split along educational lines.
Throughout these many months, the Clinton team made it clear that they believed her historic candidacy had the potential to sway portions of the electorate, most especially women voters. They were counting in no small part on the support of sisterhood.

But Clinton’s stunning loss Tuesday night showed that issues of culture and class mattered more to many American women than their gender.

Lou Dobbs: If I Were Trump My Hands Would Have Been Clutching at Paul Ryan’s Throat

Donald Trump flew to Washington DC on Thursday to meet with President Obama, Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

Paul Ryan was a very vocal critic of Donald Trump for the past year. Ryan even pulled his endorsement of Donald Trump a month before the election. If Ryan was not on Hillary’s payroll he should have been.

Tonight Lou Dobbs remarked on Trump’s meeting with anti-Trump Speaker Paul Ryan.

Lou Dobbs: I’ve got to tell you I’m such a base and petty man that if Paul Ryan had done to me what he did to Donald Trump my hands would, without any power to resist it all, would be clutching at his throat. And, I have to say, Donald Trump was very presidential. He actually may be seeking to attain the level of saint here in what he has tolerated.

Mayors of NY and Los Angeles pledge to remain immigrant sanctuaries
Officials in New York and Los Angeles on Thursday said they hoped President-elect Donald Trump would not follow through on a campaign promise to withhold federal funds from “sanctuary cities” that shield people who are in the country illegally.

HE’LL CUT YOUR FUNDING THEN YOU CAN PAY TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE MONGRELS YOURSELVES.

Mom Throws Child Out In Street For Voting For Trump In School Election

Trump’s Transition Team Considers Sarah Palin For Possible Cabinet Spot
WHAT STANDS OUT IS THAT REPUBLICANS HAVE A FAR DEEPER POOL OF TALENT TO PICK FROM BECAUSE MORE OF THEM HAVE REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE ACTUALLY WORKING JOBS BESIDES GETTING ELECTED AND RE-ELECTED.

The Trump campaign is floating the idea of tapping the former Alaskan governor as Trump’s interior secretary. Palin has made no secret about her interest in holding a position in a Trump administration.

“If I were head of that, I’d get rid of it,” Palin said in an interview in September, referring to the Department of Energy. She said abolishing the department would give states greater control of energy policy within their borders.

[CtH: I’d love to see her heading up Energy.  She did wonderful things for the industry in Alaska and really knows her business.]

Canadian Militia Vows To Protect Borders From Illegal Americans

“This ain’t no Mexico border. Illegals will face snow and deadly cold temperatures, notwithstanding dangerous predator attacks from bears, cougars and wolves. If you’re an American crossing the border illegally, your chances of survival are pretty slim ”  – John C. McCaullagh, Militia leader

“Killing illegal citizens is a crime in Canada and we don’t openly encourage violence within our organization, but we can’t prevent members from shooting a few rounds at them just to scare them away. If you accidentally get hit in the knee or in the leg, without medical assistance, you’re a dead man within 2 or 3 days” he warns. “Better alive in the US than dead in Canada. It just ain’t worth the gamble,” he adds.

Top Clinton Adviser: She Didn’t ‘Contemplate Losing’ the White House
A top campaign adviser to Hillary Clinton said the former Democratic nominee “really didn’t contemplate losing” the presidential election to her opponent Donald Trump.  The unnamed adviser told People magazine on Wednesday that campaign staff were unsure of what Clinton would do next.

NY Times Crank: “America Elected a Bigot” – “I Do Not Respect the President-Elect”

New York Times columnist Charles Blow went off on a racist tirade against Donald Trump — who was never accused of being racist until he ran for president as a Republican.

Trump is already working to erase Obama’s legacy from history
HOW MUCH HE CAN OR WILL ACCOMPLISH REMAINS TO BE SEEN

President-elect Donald Trump was surprisingly gracious as he met President Barack Obama in the Oval Office on Thursday but make no mistake: He is already working to erase major parts of Obama’s legacy from the history books.

Trump will be able to change some of Obama’s policies with a quick stroke of the pen. Others will be much more difficult, requiring justification to pass legal hurdles or buy-in from lawmakers on Capitol Hill or foreign leaders.

[CtH: I’m very encouraged by Trump’s behavior here. It points to what I’ve been hoping — i.e., that he is capable of growing into the job, something Obama The Petty never did.]

Life For Our Veterans (And Our Military) Could Be Much Different Soon
I POSTED THIS THIS MORNING. SOMEBODY MUST BE READING OUR LITTLE BLOG.

On both fronts, thankfully, I believe a new era dawns. On the campaign trail, candidate Donald Trump made both rebuilding our military and fixing the VA two of his signature issues.

President-elect Trump is poised to do the same. President-elect Trump has pledged to get rid of the disastrous defense sequester, invest in long-overdue future military technologies, grow the ranks and numbers of ships and aircraft, and repeal stifling rules of engagement that handcuff our troops.

In just a few years, the posture of our military could look much different—ensuring America both deters aggression and can swiftly defeat enemies.

[CtH: I hope this signals better working conditions for my kids.]

Franken: Americans Should Blame Republicans for Rising Obamacare Premiums

ALAS, THERE’S ALWAYS A SKUNK TO STINK THINGS UP

“The people they should be mad at, really, are Republican officeholders who refused to do anything other than vote to repeal the [Affordable Care Act],” he said. On September 30, Minnesota Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman announced that health insurance rates will increase from 50 percent to 67 percent in 2017.

[CtH: Typical Democrat who can’t admit he was wrong, ever.  They assured us that THEIR “AFFORDABLE Care Act” was going to lower premiums.]

Concerns grow of press kept at bay during Donald Trump presidency
9_142016_160318-pol-trump-me8201_s878x627
I WOULDN’T BLAME HIM A BIT. AND I’D NEVER DO TAPED INTERVIEWS, GIVEN THE MEDIA’S PENCHANT FOR ‘CREATIVE EDITING.’

[CtH: Second that!]

President-elect Donald Trump never hid his contempt for the news media during the campaign and has continued to keep the press at bay after winning the election, raising concerns he will end the tradition of allowing a pool of reporters to cover his every move in public.

Mr. Trump, who at campaign rallies regularly denounced the news media as “the most dishonest people you’ll ever meet,” has support for breaking the tradition and keeping the public in the dark about his daily whereabouts.

“I don’t think Trump needs the press pool,” said Rep. Duncan Hunter, a California Republican who is a top Trump ally on Capitol Hill. “He didn’t need it when he ran and he doesn’t need it as president of the United States.”

“If I had just won the election after everyone said I’d lose and rooted for my opponent, why would I give anyone the time of day,” said Mr. Hunter.

GOP To Use Previously Unheard Of Tactic To Slam Dunk Trump Agenda
WE’VE BEEN WAITING DECADES FOR THE REPUBLICANS TO GROW A PAIR AND START DISHING OUT SOME OF WHAT THEY’VE HAD TO TAKE FROM SCARY HARRY AND HIS MERRY BAND OF CUTTHROATS.

The key is “reconciliation,” the part of the congressional budget process that allows highly controversial policies to be considered in the Senate without any possibility of them being filibustered.

But reconciliation by itself isn’t the unprecedented procedure; it’s the novel way the leadership plans to use reconciliation: For the first time in the 4-plus decades’ history of the congressional budget process, reconciliation may occur twice in the same year.

Harry Reid Dismisses Donald Trump: ‘A Sexual Predator Who Lost the Popular Vote’

I’M GOING TO MISS THIS SORRY ASS LIKE AN IMPACTED WISDOM TOOTH

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid broke his silence Friday on Donald Trump’s victory, denouncing Trump as a “sexual predator” who “lost the popular vote” and “emboldened the forces of hate and bigotry in America”—and who is now solely responsible for healing the country’s gaping political wounds.

In a fiery statement released three days after the election, Reid, who is retiring, holds Trump accountable for his comments on the campaign trail that inspired “fear” in women, Hispanics and African-Americans in the U.S.

[CtH: Well, I guess he’d know all about sexual predators in the Oval Office, now wouldn’t he?]

Five More Days

When the sun rises on Wednesday, our next president will be known. In all likelihood it will be a greedy, lying crone that has raised bribery and extortion to a whole new level. There is a lot of talk about indictments of some of her co-conspirators, but that will likely be a pipe dream. If Obama doesn’t pardon the lot of them, as he already has for nearly 1,000 convicted felons, she’ll do it herself. She’d have no qualms or regrets as long as she gets what she wants.

Can’t We All Just Get Along?

It was a raucous caucus yesterday when the left and the far left collided in Filthydelphia. There was a 4 mile, 10 foot high fence around the arena and they even had to fence off the stage to keep the Bernie Backers away. The one thing that was glaringly missing was any sign of an American flag. The highlight was a criminal on stage with her ‘anchor child’, who was touted to have stolen the show, and the Ghetto Queen blathering about what a prick Donald Trump is and how her baby daddy had made everything so much better. In between, Bernie tried to exhort the Sandernistas to back The Bitch, even after she shafted him. One can only imagine the price he extracted to make that concession.

Dems Even Build Wall Around Podium At Convention

CNN: Complete Chaos as Schultz Escorted Out of Florida Speech by Security, Ignored Media Questions
“The protesters, I guess you can call them, the critics of Wassermann Schultz, began to chant against her, basically sort of booing her off the stage,” Lee said. “They were yelling things like ‘shame, shame, shame.’ You can see from the pictures, holding up signs that said the word ‘e-mails’ and also, some people who were holding Bernie Sanders posters.”

Andrea Mitchell: I’ve Never Seen Anything Like Scene Where DNC Chair Was Booed Off Stage

MRS. ALAN GREENSPAN WAS GOBSMACKED THAT SOMEONE WOULD DIS SUCH A PILLAR OF INTEGRITY LIKE THAT
Schultz was forced to yell her remarks Monday morning over jeers and shouting from angry Bernie Sanders supporters in the wake of the DNC email leak showing Democratic Party favoritism for Hillary Clinton. Schultz announced Sunday she would resign as party chair after this week’s convention, but she still tried to speak to her fellow Florida delegates, to no avail.

Stephanie Rawlings-Blake Forgets to Gavel in Democratic National Convention

“I hereby call the 47th quadrennial Democratic National Convention to order!” Rawlings-Blake said.

She smiled and walked away from the lectern, but someone on stage stopped her and she hurried back. She appeared to grab the gavel from beneath the lectern and officially began the convention.
WHERE WOULD THE DEMOCRAT PARTY BE WITHOUT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION?
‘To the Bernie or bust people, you’re being ridiculous’: Sanders supporter Sarah Silverman is heavily booed as she tells Democrats to back Hillary in wake of DNC Wikileaks email scandal
Sarah Silverman told Bernie Sanders supporters to ‘stop being ridiculous’ and to get behind Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign
The stand-up comedian – who shared the stage with Minnesota Senator Al Franken – backed Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primaries
Was heavily booed by Sanders supporters when she announced she was backing Clinton for president
‘Hillary is our Democratic nominee and I will proudly vote for her,’ she said. ‘I will vote for Hillary with gusto.’
Replied, ‘You’re being ridiculous’ to those who were booting and chanting and then added, ‘I have so much I want to say.’
The crowd then began to shout out ‘No’ and chant ‘Bernie’ in reply to Silverman’s admonishment
Comments appeared to be unplanned and unscripted and came after Silverman and Franken were asked to ‘stretch’ their segment


SHE AND THE UNFUNNY STUART SMALLEY HAD TO AD LIB BECAUSE AGING ROCKER PAUL SIMON WASN’T READY. WHEN HE DID PERFORM, HE FORGOT THE WORDS TO “BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS.” HOW APPROPRIATE.

KARLA ORTIZ,TOUTED BY THE LEFT AS “AN AMERICAN CITIZEN,” STANDS ONSTAGE WITH HER CRIMINAL MOTHER

YESTERDAY IT WAS CRIMINAL ALIENS. TONIGHT IT WILL BE THE MOTHERS OF BLACK SCUM WHO BECAME VICTIMS AND HEROES TO THE LEFTARDS. THIS IS WHAT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS DEGENERATED INTO.
‘This country IS great’: Michelle Obama jabs at Trump; heralds progress that means she can ‘wake up in a White House built by slaves’ and says ‘I’m with her’ in rousing speech backing Hillary – as Barack calls his wife ‘Incredible’
Michelle Obama said she was behind Hillary Clinton when addressing the Democratic National Convention tonight
Didn’t mention Trump once by name, but hit him for his involvement in the birther movement and for his ‘thin skin’

The First Lady started her speech talking about her daughters before turning it into a political attack
President Barack Obama said he ‘couldn’t be more proud’ of his wife and tweeted: ‘I love you, Michelle’
The First Lady, who was wearing a custom-made blue dress by US designer Christian Siriano, began the speech with a fun anecdote about her teenage daughters who arrived at the White House as children.
But the niceties soon morphed into a harsh criticism of the Republican nominee, as she declared her staunch backing for Hillary Clinton.

HOW TIMES CHANGE:
Michelle Obama Attacks Hillary: “If You Can’t Run Your Own House, You Can’t Run the White House”

MSNBC Token RINO Joe Scarborough: Michelle Obama’s DNC Speech “Reminded Me Of Ronald Reagan”
MORNING JOKE… THE ASS-KISSER

Clinton Complains About ‘Hillary Standard’ For Corruption
SHE ACTUALLY WENT THERE. JUST LIKE HER “VAST RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY,” THIS FELONIOUS WHORE PISSING AND MOANING ABOUT BEING HELD TO A ‘DIFFERENT STANDARD.’ LIKE THE ONE THAT ALLOWS HER TO COMMIT CRIMES WITH NO WORRY ABOUT EVER BEING HELD TO ACCOUNT.

THIS IS UNSURPRISING

ONE THING UNSURPRISINGLY MISSING WAS ANY MENTION OF ISLAMIC TERRORISM.

THIS MAN WAS FORCED TO KNEEL THEN TWO MAGGOTS BEHEADED HIM. JUST THE KIND OF GARBAGE THE DEMOCRATS WANT TO WELCOME HERE BY THE TENS OF THOUSANDS.
A nun who survived a terror attack in which a priest was beheaded by ISIS butchers has given a chilling eye-witness account of her escape

She was at the church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Reuen, Normandy, during morning mass when the terrorists crept in, but managed to escape before the clergyman was murdered.
Having taken five people hostage, including man of the cloth Jaques Hamel, 84, two nuns and two parishioners, the priest was killed and one of the nuns is fighting for her life in hospital.
It is understood Father Jaques was only at the church conducting morning mass because he was covering for the regular priest who was on holiday.
Democrats Heckle Opening Prayer
Monday night in Philadelphia the Democrats opened their proceedings with a word of prayer — from a Christian minister. Now that in and of itself was a miracle — right up there with the water getting turned into wine.

But when the preacher offered a blessing upon Hillary Clinton, all you-know-what broke loose.

this seemed appropriate

Americans OPPOSE post-20 week abortion 2 to 1

New Poll: Do you support or oppose banning abortions after 20-weeks of pregnancy?

59% SUPPORT vs. 30% OPPOSE

This poll was commissioned by the liberal Huffington Post.

The Face of the Aborted

Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and her pro-abortion friends took to Capitol Hill today to rally for keeping abortions legal right up to the day of birth. Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota and Rep Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut joined them. According to Richards, “It is very rare for a woman to need to terminate a pregnancy after 20 weeks.” It is definitely less common than before 20 weeks, but at more than 1 per day in Texas alone, I wouldn’t call that exactly “rare.” Would you? Richards also refused to respond when asked if it was wrong to kill a post-20-week fetus who was healthy. The Pro-Aborts try to make out like these late termers are only for severe medical problems, but the Pro-Life movement knows it is also done for absurdly casual and frivolous reasons.

2012_08 08 I don't want no more girls

900 families asked for the chance to adopt a baby with Down Syndrome whose life was at risk of abortion. Pro-Abortion writer sneered at this, calling it “coercion” of the birth mother to carry a “nonviable fetus” who would lead a “terrible life” to term. According to her, “anti-abortion folks care more about fetuses with fairytale narratives than actual babies.” Yeah, right. This would be why they were all begging for the right to ADOPT this child. For LIFE. Sheesh.
