Just a Thought

On this most solemn of days, I just wanted to say that after eight years of a leader who treated them with utter contempt, our warriors finally have someone who treats them with the reverence and respect they truly deserve.

Trump Shakes Literally Every Naval Academy Graduate’s Hand
President Donald Trump gave a speech to the graduates of the Naval Academy Friday morning. Then, the president went a step further, offering to shake the hands of every single graduate — more than 1,000 midshipmen.

Bits & Bytes

I’ve been out of commission for quite a while, but I’m feeling somewhat better now and trying to get caught up. My email has a ginormous backlog, what with all the stuff I subscribe to and the multitudinous pictures from recent family celebrations.

The Buzzers got to spend Easter with their Texas cousins. Mama Buzz said the kids were super good travelers and they all had a wonderful vacation!

2018_03 27 A&A on plane

Most of the e-subscription stuff is just going into the trash, cuz I can’t deal with it all. But some is kinda interesting, so here’s a sampling.

TRUMP ECONOMY: The U.S. unemployment rate in February marked a 17-year low. The number of Americans rating the economy good to excellent has hit an 18-year high. Average job growth numbers in 2018 are the strongest since 1997. Since January 2017, more than 2.5 million jobs have been added to the economy.

CUTTING SPENDING: White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow said White House officials and Congressional Republicans are putting together legislation to rescind spending from the $1.3 trillion omnibus budget they recently passed. A rescission bill could not be filibustered by Senate Democrats.

DEMOCRAT HYPOCRISY: President Donald J. Trump announced Tuesday that he will deploy U.S. troops to reinforce the Mexican border. Democrats acted like he had set a cross ablaze on someone’s lawn. But in 2010, President Obama deployed 1,200 National Guard troops and requested an extra $500 million to secure the Mexican border. One of my military kids who has served down there voiced disgust at the liberal head explosions. “We’ve had troops on the border for ages!”

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY WIN: Air Force Col. Leland Bohannon was on the verge of being promoted to a one-star general when he was suspended from command in 2017 for refusing to publicly affirm the same-sex spouse of a retiring subordinate. Thankfully, the Air Force has reversed its decision to punish this highly-decorated and respected officer.

ANTI-CHRISTIAN BIGOTRY: In 2016, after a young Muslim jihadist shot up a gay nightclub in Orlando, the Left Stream Media blamed it on Christians and Republicans, who allegedly have fostered such a climate of anti-gay hatred that this poor little Muslim jihadist could not help himself. But during the trial, it became clear that it was a terrorist attack, pure and simple. The shooter had originally intended to shoot up the Disney Springs shopping and entertainment complex and had switched to the gay nightclub randomly less than an hour before the attack. It is not clear he even knew it was a gay bar. Don’t hold your breath waiting for the Left to apologize to the millions of Americans they slandered unjustly.

Some Food for Thought

The Supreme Court Issues Its Decision On Trump’s DACA Appeal

In an extraordinary procedural move, the government appealed directly to the Supreme Court. Under normal procedure, the government would challenge Alsup’s order at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a principle antagonist to Trump’s ambitions throughout his presidency. Solicitor General Noel Francisco, the government’s Supreme Court lawyer, argued the case required the tribunal’s urgent attention, as Alsup’s decision “requires the government to sanction indefinitely an ongoing violation of federal law being committed by nearly 700,000 aliens.”
The justices rarely grant such requests.

Terry McAuliffe: ‘Who Better To Take On Trump Than Me?’

THIS IS THE MOST VICIOUS PUNK IN POLITICS
Of course, we’re barely into Year 2 of President Trump, but that doesn’t mean Democrats aren’t jockeying right now to get into position to run in 2020. And as dirty as Hillay and Bill are, McAuliffe is that times 10 — or 1,000. Plus, all the filthy Clinton leeches are without a host, now that Hillary has lost for a second time and vows not to run again.

If unions lose the Janus case, how will they survive? Best bet is to reinvent themselves as professional associations
IN WISCONSIN, UNIONS AND DEMOCRATS (REDUNDANT) POURED MORE THAN 10 MILLION DOLLARS INTO AN EFFORT TO GET RID OF GOVERNOR WALKER AND THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY. THEY LOST. UNIONS NOW CANNOT COMPEL ANY MEMBER TO PAY DUES. THEIR CASH FLOW CRATERED.
There’s much more than free speech at stake here, though. If the court sides with Janus, unions across the country stand to lose millions of dollars a year in guaranteed revenue — potentially enough to cripple their operations. Nobody would be hit harder than the nation’s two largest teachers’ unions — including the National Education Association, the largest public sector union in the country.

Drugs suspect on toilet strike for 38 days ‘would rather die than take a poo’
I DON’T THINK IT’S PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE TO GO THAT LONG WITHOUT GOING
A suspected drug dealer on a record-breaking toilet strike would rather die than take a poo, his lawyer has said. Lamarr Chambers, 24, has now spent 38 days in police custody after Essex Police arrested and detained him on January 17.
Officers believe he swallowed some of the drugs before his arrest in Harlow, Essex, and they have been patiently waiting for him to finally go ever since.

Michelle Obama’s upcoming memoir replicates Obama’s road to power to a T
As Lifson notes, the Democrats are in bad shape, at least if they run on policies. But if they can galvanize the black vote, which is what they did with Obama, they are in a position to win. They are sure they can’t win if they don’t. What would be more logical than for Michelle Obama to write an identity politics book, in first person, Oprah-style, as a backdrop “narrative” to galvanize those voters? The Obamas always were about “narrative” as a means of concealing their policy objectives by promoting their personas. Obama’s “mind-meld,” and right hand man, after all, was fiction writer and major Ben Rhodes. Ol’ Ben knew more than anyone about creating “narratives.”

It’s Not About Saving Lives: Democratic Senator Says Gun Debate Will Help His Party In Midterms
Did anyone catch Sen. Bill Nelson’s (D-FL) rather gratuitous swipe at Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday? CNN held a town hall event in Sunrise, Florida hosted by Jake Tapper, where National Rifle Association Dana Loesch and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) literally ventured into the lion’s den. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) also participated. It was a two-hour bashing of Rubio, the NRA, Loesch, every law-abiding gun owner, and every supporter of the Second Amendment. It was show trial, a North Korean kangaroo court that resembled something out of the two minutes of hate from Orwell’s 1984.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders cops to making a rare mistake and says Trump has not confirmed for WHCD yet – but WILL go to Gridiron
The White House told DailyMail.com Monday that President Trump would attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but then walked it back
The president will, however, attend this year’s white-tie Gridiron dinner, an event also hosted by Washington journalists
Trump skipped both the Gridiron and the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner last year as he warred with the so-called ‘fake news’
The president’s willingness to go to the Gridiron suggests he may be open to attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner as well
President Obama said a President Trump would bring ‘change’ to the White House, and then this image flashed to the audience of the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner

As country listens to Florida teens, Black Lives Matter youths feel ignored
THIS IS THE CRAP IN THE PAPERS I DELIVER EVERY DAY.
The young people of Black Lives Matter are hurt. And they have every right to be.
When they were protesting in the streets of cities across America, much of the country didn’t bother to listen to their message. They were not embraced by the mainstream for their bravery, their determination or resolve to bring attention to reckless police killings that disproportionately impact young African-Americans.
In a tweet last week, Oprah Winfrey said the inspiring youths in Florida reminded her of the “Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.” She pledged to match George and Amal Clooney’s $500,000 donation to the youths’ March for Our Lives planned for March 24.

U.S. Army Awards ‘Heroism Medals’ to 3 JROTC Students Killed in Florida High School Shooting
THESE YOUNG PEOPLE SHOWED MORE GUTS THAN THE COWARDLY COPS WHO CRINGED OUTSIDE WHILE INNOCENTS WERE BEING SLAUGHTERED
The U.S. Army announced Tuesday that Alaina Petty, Martin Duque, and Peter Wang—who were all students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and also served as cadets in the school’s JROTC program—would receive JROTC Heroism Medals for their acts of bravery during Wednesday’s shooting.
Army spokesman Michael Maddox said that Petty’s family had been presented with the award at her funeral Monday, and Wang’s family received the award during his funeral service Tuesday. Duque’s family will accept the medal at his funeral service Saturday.

Did the PA Supreme Court Just Make it Easier for Dems to Win in the Midterms?
An important swing state may have just swung in Democrats’ favor. Although Republicans hold 13 House seats in Pennsylvania to Democrats’ five, a new ruling from the state supreme court appears to give the Democrats a favorable new congressional map.
THE DEMOCRATS WILL PICK UP 4-5 EXTRA SEATS BEFORE A BALLOT IS CAST. THEY ARE GOING TO STEAL THIS ELECTION IN ORDER TO GET A MAJORITY AND IMPEACH TRUMP.

Suspected poacher killed, eaten by pack of lions
A suspected poacher was fatally mauled and eaten by a pack of lions near a national park in South Africa, leaving behind just the man’s “head and some remains,” police said.
A police spokesman in Limpopo told AFP that a loaded hunting rifle was found near the man’s body early Saturday at a private game park in Hoedspruit, west of Kruger National Park, which contains large numbers of the Big 5 game species — lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo.
“It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions,” Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP. “They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left
THE POACHER WAS ACCOMPANIED BY AN ILLEGAL FUR BUYER FROM EASTERN EUROPE. THE POACHER WAS EATEN BY THE FEMALE LION. THE CZECH WAS IN THE MALE.

Much Ado

I was going to do an opinion piece, but after almost two weeks of fighting snowstorms every day as I delivered newspapers I’m worn out. Maybe another time.

PAUL RYAN Promises Democrats to Pass Amnesty – Will Get to It Next
NEVER MIND CALLS TO PRIMARY HIM. THE DEMOCRATS IN HIS HOMETOWN LOVE HIM. HE’S NOT GOING ANYWHERE.
Speaker Paul Ryan promised Democrats on Thursday he will pass amnesty for illegal aliens. They just need to wait a week or two.

Formerly bankrupt California city tests ‘universal’ income for residents
The proposed project is being funded by a private grant
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
The plan, spearheaded by Stockton’s 27-year-old mayor, Michael Tubbs, will likely begin sometime in August 2018 and involve at least 100 people of varying income levels getting $500 a month for three years.
Ever since it declared bankruptcy in 2012, Stockton has been in recovery-mode, and Tubbs sees basic income — a growing topic of discussion around the world over the past couple years — as one way to rehabilitate the city.
In a basic income system, participants get a fixed amount of money that they can use however they want.

Ignoring Human Rights Abuses, Mainstream Media Gush Over North Korea’s ‘Charm’
In a bizarre display of willful blindness, U.S. liberal media have lavished praise on North Korea’s dictatorship during the first days of the Winter Olympics, gushing over its “charm offensive” and comparing it favorably to the Trump administration.
In an article Sunday titled “Kim Jong-un’s Sister Turns On the Charm, Taking Pence’s Spotlight,” the New York Times was unable to contain its admiration for the totalitarian state, saying that North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, stole the show at the Winter Olympics by sending his sister, Kim Yo-jong.

Trump wants a military parade and liberals are hysterical (just more proof it’s the right thing to do)
President Trump wants a parade celebrating our military and troops. It’s a great idea, and is a perfect event symbolizing the fact that America is getting back on her feet after eight years of a commander-in-chief who reveled in complaining about America and decimating our military.The hysteria the proposed parade has provoked among Democrats and leftists provides even more proof that it’s the right thing to do.

Liberal Hack to Secretary Mattis: Why Divert Energy, Time, Financial Resources for a Military Parade?
Donald Trump with wife Melania and sons Eric and Donald, Jr. Trump holds the Phelps Award as 2008 Honoree of the Year by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Plaza.
Donald Trump was credited with saving the 50th Anniversary of the NY Veterans Day Parade
UPI reported in 1995 how Trump was credited with ‘saving’ the New York Veterans Day Parade. The parade that year was marking the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II.
Police estimated 500,000 people attended the largest military parade ever held in New York. Organizers, who placed the turnout at closer to a million, said the parade would not have been a success if it hadn’t been for real estate developer Donald Trump, who contributed $200,000 and raised another $300,000.
Last week the Trump White House announced they would ask the military to plan a great military parade in Washington DC.
Democrats were disgusted.
Hallie Jackson: To follow up on Catherine’s question, You just laid out the argument to fulling funding the military, why you think every dollar counts. So why divert time, energy, financial resources to the planning of a parade as the president has asked?

I-TEAM: Inmates claim Corrine Brown getting special treatment
Current, former workers at Coleman facility say that’s not true
Security officials inside the minimum-security prison camp that is part of the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex in Central Florida — where the 71-year-old former Democratic congresswoman reported to Jan. 29 — said she’s treated like everyone else.
But according to inmates, Brown has been getting everything from massages to being able to wear wigs.
“New mattress, kissing up all day and all night by both staff and residents … and she got to keep a bunch of wigs,” one inmate wrote.
The letter goes on to say, “She had to have a brand new mattress. She has girls that are in prison at her beck and call. She says they are on her payroll. Where we got one chicken pattie for lunch she gets 2. The officers allows her to have massages every night.”
That inmate also claims that Brown is allowed to wear “brand new high-top leather sneakers” that aren’t even sold in the prison commissary.

Jeanne Ives Targets Illinois ‘Sanctuary State’ Law in Republican Primary
RAUNER TRIED TO BRING A BIT OF FISCAL SANITY TO THIS LIBERAL SEWER. HE WAS STEAMROLLED BY THE DEMOCRAT-DOMINANT LEGISLATURE LED BY HOUSE SPEAKER MICHAEL MADIGAN AND THE NEWS MEDIA. HIS VETO WAS EASILY OVERRIDDEN AND HE JUST GAVE UP. NOTHING ANY REPUBLICAN DOES WOULD MAKE A BIT OF DIFFERENCE.
Illinois State Representative Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) has launched a biting new ad against incumbent Republican Bruce Rauner that brings the “sanctuary state” issue to the fore in the Republican primary.
In 2017, Rauner signed a law that essentially made Illinois a sanctuary state. Conservatives warned that it marked the “beginning of the end” of his administration.

Columnist: “It’s Time To Accept They’re No Longer Journalists. They’re Activists”
The Washington Post, New York Times, and USA Today still refuse to employ a single columnist that won’t begin each piece with anything less than “Mr. Trump, you are a liar!”
CNN this year had to retract one story and significantly modify a second one (both were related to Trump and Russia) after it turned out the former wasn’t supported by any facts (otherwise often referred to as “fiction”) and the latter was inaccurate to the point of libel.

California Moves To Force Public Universities To Administer Abortion Pills
The state legislature is moving on an aggressive attempt to reconfigure student health centers from places of healing to abortion franchises.
The FDA reports that such drug-induced abortions have led to cases of extreme bleeding, infection and incomplete abortions requiring a surgery, and even to the death of mothers. The drugs are especially dangerous to women who are later in pregnancy or are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, both conditions which must be determined by an ultrasound (using equipment not usually found in a college health center.) And that is before we add in the emotional experience of waiting alone in a bathroom to see the pre-born infant pass into a toilet.

California Will Block Oil And Coal Shipments, Risks Constitutional Battle
“Given how unpopular oil development in coastal waters is in California, it is certain that the state would not approve new pipelines or allow use of existing pipelines to transport oil from new leases onshore,” coastal commissioners Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, State Controller Betty Yee, and state Department of Finance Director Michael Cohen wrote in a letter Wednesday to the BOEM.
California officials can therefore control pipelines, transportation of materials, terminals, and refineries built in coastal areas. The federal government could pull out the U.S. Constitution’s supremacy clause to create a regulatory framework that would override California law.

Dems left Dreamers out to dry, say activists
Immigration activists are furious that 73 House Democrats, including seven members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, voted for a bipartisan spending bill that doesn’t include a DACA fix.

NBC Political Analyst: ‘Trump Has Become The Commander in Chief of American Rape Culture’
Last week White House staff secretary Rob Porter stepped down after his former wife alleged he was abusive during their marriage. And White House speechwriter David Sorensen also resigned after a former wife alleged he was abusive during their marriage. Both men denied the charges.
Of course, this story led liberal media headlines all week.
These are the same people who defended Bill Clinton – who actually was accused of rape and was forced to pay thousands to at least one woman he sexually abused.

“Whatcha think?” she asked her mother, Marian Robinson. “It’s pretty nice, isn’t it?”
Obama said that she and President Barack Obama interviewed several artists for their portraits, and that she bonded with Sherald because of all the time they spent together.

Resist hasn’t got the numbers

Remember how, back in 2013, Michelle Obama and her girls refused to harvest their own garden at the White House, because the government was shut down?  Good thing our brave troops aren’t that lazy and self-centered, isn’t it?

2018_01 23 US kills ISIS during shutdown

As soon as the government was opened back up, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer pulled his offer to support a wall on the southern border. President Trump fired back: “If there is no wall, there is no DACA.”

2018_01 22 Schumer screw taxpayers toon

People noticed who was getting screwed. Here are the results of a new Harvard-Merris poll about the immigration issue that forced the shut down:

  • 79% of Americans want secure borders.
  • 61% say current security is inadequate.
  • 65% FAVOR the congressional deal Trump is offering, i.e., keep DACA in exchange for
    • increasing merit immigration
    • decreasing chain immigration
    • eliminating the diversity visa lottery
    • funding for barrier security on the U.S.-Mexico border.

When They’re Out of Power They’re Just Funny

Being a Democrat means you don’t need a conscience or a moral compass. You cater to the ignorant, the lazy, and the morally reprehensible. You blatantly lie to them. Most of them know it and they don’t care. They are motivated by greed,ignorance, and hate. You stand for nothing except enriching yourself at the expense of the the law-abiding people of this country who work and pay the taxes you buy votes with.

When they’re in power, like the dark days of the Obama reign of terror, they specialize in spreading misery to all quarters. Times like these, when they’re relegated to comic relief, they can display a particular pathos born of desperation to be relevant. They will return to the throne one day, but until then they’re just fun to watch.

Frederica Wilson Joins Dems In Boycotting Trump’s State Of The Union Address

“For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement. “I have no doubt that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises, and lies.”

http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/15/another-black-member-of-congress-is-protesting-trumps-state-of-the-union/

The collective IQ at the SOTU just skyrocketed

As for Frederica Wilson, the gobs of attention she got for exploiting the wife of a fallen soldier has faded away – an easily forgotten embarrassing memory.

So naturally she thinks her next ticket to cable news is announcing she too will skip Trump’s SOTU address.

Black unemployment is at an all-time low – falling to below 7% for the first time ever.  And the primary beneficiaries of President Trump stemming the flow of unskilled illegal aliens into the country are black Americans.  Now you would think that Frederica, John and Maxine would be more focused on the constituents in their districts than flooding the country will unskilled, cheap labor.  But for the Democrat Party, all that matters are illegal aliens.

American blacks need to understand that they have been cast aside.  Parasites suck the life out of a host then move on.  And the Democrat parasites in Congress have drained all advantage out of the black vote. Now they’ve moved on to illegals.

Since they have nothing to show for their endless years in Congress, all they have left is showboating and demagoguery.  So they put on petty displays for attention and hurl slanderous attacks at the President — all to mask their years and years of inaction.
So go ahead, stay home, you useless blobs of irrelevance.

Dems ‘Terrified’ of Trump Cracking Black Vote, Civil Rights Leader Says

With infamous race card losing its potency, guests on ‘The Laura Ingraham Show’ say president’s program threatens old alliances.

“[Democrats] are terrified that this president gets somewhere north of 10 to 15 percent of the black vote,” said Niger Innis, spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) (pictured above right, in red tie, in the image on this page). “And they’re terrified because, if that happens, then it is first of all, mathematically, electorally impossible for a Democrat to win.”

Innis added, “But more than that, it is because they are so invested in having a monopoly of the black vote, and that monopoly is based on blacks as forever seeing themselves as victims, forever seeing themselves as victims of racism, of economic depravity of the white man.”

The battle to shut down Obama’s presidential center

What initially started out as a library has morphed into a 20-acre private “center,” and some environmentalists and historians are unhappy with the Obama Foundation’s plans to swoop in and take over a national historic place.

The Obama Foundation originally said it would house a presidential library on the property and vowed to have the National Archives oversee the facility because of its placement on public land. But that’s no longer the case, and some are balking at the change in plans.

Surprise: The States That Hemorrhaged Population Fastest in 2017 Were…

Some of the politicians objecting most loudly to the GOP tax reform law were Democrats from high tax blue states, whose constituents for years have been somewhat insulated from their exorbitant state and local tax bills via an ability to write them off as a federal tax deduction.  Under the new law, those who itemize (a small fraction of taxpayers to begin with) will only be able to deduct up to $10,000 in SALT-related (property tax) expenses. This will expose some of them, especially those in upper-income brackets, to the true costs of living in tax happy jurisdictions. These people make up the lion’s share the roughly five percent of taxpayers who stand to see a net tax increase next year — whereas 80 percent of all taxpayers, and 91 percent of middle class earners will get a cut.

US Military Members Receive Biggest Pay Bump Since 2010

Military members will see their paychecks rise by the largest percent increase since 2010 this week.

At the end of December, President Donald Trump, by way of executive order, mandated a 2.4% pay hike for uniformed service members and a 1.9% raise for federal workers. The Trump administration’s initial budget blueprint called for a 2.1% pay increase, while the House and Senate suggested the 2.4% figure, which was eventually adopted by the president.

Cotton, however, warned that if Democrats were to shut down the government over amnesty, it could have a detrimental impact on their re-election efforts in states like Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Montana.

Towards the end of 2017, Democrats in the House and Senate made similar threats that they would shut down the federal government over an amnesty for illegal aliens. But the left-wing party quickly backed off the plan when public opinion polls showed Americans were increasingly opposed to a shutdown over a year-end amnesty that would further suppress the wages of American workers.

Law-Abiding American Families Are the Victims in the Dreamers Debacle

Democrats would have us believe removing these people is inhumane.  What’s inhumane is ignoring laws we don’t like and vigorously enforcing those that we do.  It’s a tragedy of justice, and it creates an operational double standard that is destroying our nation while incentivizing bad actors from around the world to take advantage of us.

Trump Administration Plans To Help States Implement Work Requirements for Medicaid

Kentucky has just received approval from the Trump administration to implement their work requirements, which mirror their requirements for food stamps. There are 650,000 Medicaid beneficiaries in Kentucky. Many of these individuals do not have any earned income and do not work at all. Under the new requirements, these beneficiaries will have to either work, train, or volunteer for 20 hours a week in order to receive benefits.

According to research from the Foundation for Government Accountability, the number of Medicaid beneficiaries has more than doubled since 2000. Now 75 million are enrolled in the program, which includes 28 million able-bodied adults. In addition, 52 percent of Medicaid beneficiaries that are able-bodied do not work.

CNN Anchor Alisyn Camerota Brought To Tears Over Trump “Shithole” Remark

Economists Agree: Trump, Not Obama, Gets Credit For Economy

The Wall Street Journal asked 68 business, financial and academic economists who was responsible for the strengthening of the economy, and most “suggested Mr. Trump’s election deserves at least some credit” for the upturn.

A majority said the president had been “somewhat” or “strongly” positive for job creation, gross domestic product growth and the rising stock market.

COVFEFE!! Dow Reaches 26,000 Points!… Up 1,000 Points in Just SEVEN Days

President Trump’s first year in office resulted in the greatest year in stock market history. The Dow ended up nearly 5,000 points for the year which was the highest increase in the Dow’s more than 100 year history. The Dow reached all-time new highs a record 71 times in 2017, breaking the record for the most all-time highs in a calendar year set in 1995.

NYT Officially Designates Trump A Racist, And Nobody Cares

The New York Times wants to make it official: President Donald Trump is a racist.  On Friday, the editorial board of America’s most influential paper asserted there was no doubt of that.

The editorial was in response to Trump reportedly asking why America takes in so many immigrants from “shithole” countries instead of places like Norway.  “Where to begin?” the Times’ editorial board collectively sighed when reflecting on Trump’s statement. “How about with a simple observation: The president of the United States is a racist.”

It shouldn’t be doubted that folks like Charles Blow and others in the media genuinely believe Trump is a racist for saying “shithole” countries and criticizing illegal immigrants in colorful language. But they aren’t just saying what they believe to get it off their chest.
The commentators wanting Trump to be certified as a racist understand the power of that charge and how it has played out in politics in the past.

THIS is how it’s done

2018_01 08 Trump salutes flag

President Trump attended the national championship game on Monday night between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Georgia Bulldogs.

Right before the national anthem played, Trump was escorted on to the middle of the field by young members of the military.

As the bands of both teams played the anthem, the soldiers saluted and Trump stood with his hand on his heart.

The crowd Monday night went wild.

Thinking of Our Warriors at Christmas Time

It’s unusual to post anything in the afternoon, but there’s a lot that needs to be seen this weekend.

Thinking of the Mascots and all the others who cannot be with family this year.  God bless them all and keep them safe. We have your back, now and always.

CtH: Last year, Dearest and I were on our own and didn’t bother to decorate at all.  I got feeling a tad guilty what with the neighbors and all, so I ended up blowing a whole $3 on a big red bow that I stuck to the door. This year, though, HURRAH!!!  We are decorated and excited to be hosting Daughter #2 (aka, Army Princess), with Hubby, Son, Daughter, and Grandchild #7 who is still in the oven.

Daughter #3 (aka, Warrior Princess) is snowed in at the moment, but if the plows get out and they don’t get any more, she’s bringing Grandchild #6 to celebrate Our Lord’s birth and the renewal of the #2s wedding vows (10 years! wow!).

The Warriors aren’t military (any more), but Warrior Prince used up his days off on his sister’s nuptials, so he has to miss out. Daughter #1 (aka, Mama Buzz) is trying to be okay with sharing our joyful time via technology.  My phone had 81 texts on it today!  LOL  Daddy Buzz is active duty and, unlike Army Prince and Army Princess, was not able to get enough time off to make the trip.  This evening, Mama and Bunny did Mother-Daughter Christmas manicures. 🙂

We are all just super grateful that none of them are deployed!  It’s hard to celebrate Christmas when one’s offspring are in harm’s way.

Trump awards the Purple Heart to soldier, 25, who was injured in an IED blast in Afghanistan during Walter Reed visit after wishing wounded warriors Merry Christmas

President Donald Trump stopped by Walter Reed on Thursday afternoon to spread Christmas cheer to wounded troops.  While there he awarded the Purple Heart to 1st Lt Victor E. Prato.

Trump conversed and took selfies with several recovering service members. In brief remarks to reporters, Trump said he wanted to ‘to say hello to some of the bravest people anywhere in the world’ and wish them Merry Christmas.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE FROM OBAMA’S “YOU GUYS MAKE A GREAT PHOTO OP.”

[CtH: Seeing this guy in a neck brace and maybe unable to move … it makes me furious all over again the way that John Kerry manipulated the system to get himself Purple Heart medals for tiny scratches. ::simmer::]

While Most of DC Slept, Sec. Zinke Wandered A Frozen Arlington Cemetery With A Christmas Wreath

Thousands of people lined up at the gates of Arlington Cemetery before dawn Saturday morning. It was a bitterly cold. The temperature was far below freezing. There was snow on the ground. None of it dampened the spirits of those who looked forward to laying a wreath on a gleaming white headstone of an American hero.

Upon entering, the family members line up behind a semi trucks full of wreaths.

Watch the Guys From Black Rifle Coffee Play Christmas Songs With Guns

SOME HIGH VELOCITY CHRISTMAS TUNES

The small-batch, roast-to-order, veteran-owned coffee company is known for making fun videos of themselves shooting and blowing stuff up, but they just may have out done themselves with this one.

The video opens with the men, wearing Christmas sweaters of course (one of which features Sasquatch in a bikini), playing Jingle Bells by shooting at the musical plinking target. There are also appearances from Santa and a man dressed as Ralphie from the Christmas Story — complete with pink bunny suit.

[CtH: Thanks for this one, Pete!  My offspring are going to get such a kick out of it.]

Delingpole: Christmas Is Here, Everyone! EPA Officials Are ‘Leaving in Droves’

More than 700 people have left the Environmental Protection Agency since President Trump took office, a wave of departures that puts the administration nearly a quarter of the way toward its goal of shrinking the agency to levels last seen during the Reagan administration.  What marvellous news to ease us all into the festive Christmas spirit, eh readers?

Pope Francis: If You Take Away Jesus, Christmas Is ‘Empty’
Addressing a group of children who came to the Vatican on Sunday for the blessing of the figures of Jesus for their Nativity scenes, the Pope told them that only a Christ-centered celebration is the “real Christmas.”

After his Angelus prayer on Sunday, the pontiff thanked the children for their “joyful presence” in Saint Peter’s Square, and invited them to pray at home in front of the manger scene with their families, allowing themselves to be attracted “by the tenderness of Jesus child, born poor and fragile among us, to give us his love.”

Romans decry “mangy”, city’s threadbare Christmas tree, as symbol of decline

Romans are up in arms over the tree that has been dubbed “Spelacchio.”  Roughly translated as mangy or baldy, the name given to the tree in the capital’s Piazza Venezia has become a symbol of what many see as the eternal city’s eternal decay.

“It’s a disgrace. It hurts even to look at this Christmas tree,” one Roman resident told Reuters Television, using an Italian term suggesting that it looked like a plucked chicken.

[CtH: Sickening!]

What a trashy decoration! Couple buys an ‘ugly misfit’ Christmas tree and then transforms it into Sesame Street’s Oscar the Grouch – complete with its own garbage can and festive lights

Featuring a trash can stand and Oscar’s pet worm, Slimey, the picture of the tree has since gone viral. The couple also opted for an alternative tree in 2015, transforming their fir into a creation named, ‘Rudog the Reintree’.

[CtH: Sad to say, these “mangy” trees are a whole lot nicer than what Rome put up!]
