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.”

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.

Maxine Waters: MLK Would Be Marching to Impeach Trump

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) took note of Martin Luther King Day Monday by tweeting that if civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was alive today he would “be marching not only for civil rights & protecting voting rights, but to urge Members of Congress to accept their responsibility to save the U.S. from a dangerous man who has no respect for our Constitution & no concern for strengthening our democracy.”

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.

Tom Cotton: ‘Let’s See How’ Shutting Down Government Over DACA Amnesty ‘Works Out for’ Democrats

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.

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. 🙂

2017_12 22 Mama and Bunny Cmas nails

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.

  • 3,743 gallons of juice
  • 2,145 gallons of eggnog

“Our warfighters spend a lot of holidays away from their families and miss out on some of their favorite family traditions,” she said. “We take great pride in ensuring a taste of home is delivered to every warfighter,” said Robin Whaley, who leads a DLA Troop Support Subsistence team in Philadelphia.

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.”

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.

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.

The military’s biggest raise in 8 years

2017_12 Trump on military

President Donald J. Trump has signed the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2018, which approves one of the largest defense spending increases since the Reagan presidency to help rebuild America’s Armed Forces.

Here is a quick list of what the NDAA does for America’s military:

  • Increases rather than shrinks the size of our forces for the first time in 7 years
  • Ensures that our military remains the world’s preeminent fighting force, which is vital to the Administration’s peace-through-strength strategy
  • Authorizes funding to allow for the continued defeat of ISIS and cover critical missile defense capabilities to confront the threat posed by North Korea
  • Takes concrete steps to rebuild U.S. military readiness
  • Approves a 2.4 percent pay raise for our troops—the largest in 8 years

Happy Race Neutral Friday

The original title was going to be “Happy race neutral, non-gender specific, nonbinary, gluten-free, nonjudgmental, pasteurized, homogenized, lactose free, gun free, zenith of crass commercialism Friday.” But it wouldn’t fit.

We have entered the month of retail Armageddon known as the Christmas shopping season. My promise to you is that you will never see ‘xmas’ in any reference to the celebration of Christ’s birth in anything I post. We are not ashamed of who we are.

Doing my paper delivery this morning, I passed through the parking lot of a Menard’s and a Target store. There were a few people at 3:30, but it’s not like it was some years ago when stores didn’t begin the orgy of spending on Thanksgiving night.

There was a time in my foolish youth when I enjoyed going to shopping malls, buying gifts, fighting crowds, immersed in the frenzy of the day.

When I was in college we played a game called ‘the parking lot game.’ Sick, but fun. We’d park in the last row at the mall and go inside. When we came out there were cars circling the parking lot like so many mechanical buzzards, cruising for a parking spot near the front. We’d take out our keys and pretend we were looking for where we parked and see how many cars we could get to follow us looking to grab a spot, like so many sheep following a Judas goat. Three was the most we ever scored. Perverse, twisted, cruel, but all we were really doing was using other peoples’ greed and sloth to amuse ourselves.

These days I can’t imagine people actually subjecting themselves to the bad attitudes of sales people and the short tempers of shoppers looking for deals on big screen TVs. What little shopping I do is accomplished from right where I’m sitting now. Go online, order what you want, and they send it to your door. No muss, no fuss, no smart asses playing the parking lot game.

Hoping everyone had a wonderful day yesterday. It was quiet around here for the most part, just my stepson and I enjoying a football game and gorging on his mama’s culinary expertise. It all seems so pointless somehow. Two weeks of preparation, two days of getting ready for family, and in a half hour it’s over. Now comes four weeks of shopping, decorating, wrapping, tree buying and installation, and in a matter of hours it’s over. Nothing else to look forward to for four months but cold, ice, and snow. It’s called life and we learn to live it.

There is a mix of regular political nonsense leavened with some warm items to help your digestion today.

Trumps Spend Thanksgiving Serving Meals To Active Duty Armed Forces

“Incredible people, you’ve done an incredible job,” Trump said.

The First Lady jumped in to tell the group: “Happy Thanksgiving!” She smiled and waved with both hands as she spoke.

The president offered to take questions from the Coast Guard, although no one spoke up — which the president says he loves.


JUST THINK… A FIRST LADY WHO DOESN’T NEED A BOOB BELT OR $500 SNEAKERS TO LOOK STUNNING (not saying the Wookie could, on the best day she ever had).

DEMOCRAT NEWS NETWORK: CNN Fails To Report These 24 Democrat Sex Scandals

All of the Democrat sex scandals that CNN has failed to report on have made news in 2017, with 19 of the 24 making news within the last month.

THE MEDIA GOES TO GREAT LENGTHS TO AVOID TALKING ABOUT THE 800 POUND HAM-HANDED GORILLA IN THE ROOM.
When CNN is not busy giving President Donald Trump 93% negative coverage, covering for Islamic terrorists, botching gun reports, or being sued by over 200 African-Americans for racial discrimination, they are busy covering for Democrats across the United States by not reporting on scandals.

Below are 24 recent Democratic sex scandals that CNN has failed to report on their website (documentation showing CNN did not cover the scandals is provided at the bottom of this report).

THIS STORY IS AT ONCE BOTH HEARTWARMING AND INFURIATING.
New Jersey Woman Raises More Than $200K for Homeless Man Who Bought Her Gasoline
Kate McClure, a 27-year-old from New Jersey, told the Inquirer that as she was traveling to Philadelphia to visit a friend, her car suddenly ran out of gasoline. McClure said she was nervous and scared, as the neighborhood where her car stopped was sketchy.
“My heart was beating out of my chest,” McClure said. “I didn’t know what the heck to do.”

After calling her boyfriend, 38-year-old Mark D’Amico, who promised to come get her, McClure said a homeless man named Johnny approached her car to help.

They learned he is Johnny Bobbitt Jr., 34, from the Raleigh, N.C., area. He was an ammunition technician in the Marines. His Facebook page includes photos and posts that trace a romantic relationship from its happier days to its 2014 breakup

According to McClure, Johnny — who takes care of two other men under a bridge in the area — told her to lock her car doors and that he would return.

Johnny told her to sit tight and that he would spend his last $20 to buy gas a few blocks away. “He said, ‘I’ll be back. Trust me,’” McClure told the Inquirer.

Ten minutes after speaking with McClure, Johnny returned with a gallon of gas that he had bought with his last $20.

Johnny told McClure that he is interested in working at the Robbinsville, New Jersey, Amazon warehouse so he can get health benefits and make a decent living.

Though McClure and D’Amico continued passing through to see Johnny in Philadelphia, they still felt they could do more. That is when they decided to fund raise to help change Johnny’s life, setting up a GoFundMe page that has far exceeded the $10,000 goal the couple originally set.

“He knows where he’s at and he knows what he has to do to dig himself out,” D’Amico told the Inquirer. “It’s almost impossible to dig himself out if he has nobody and nothing. If we can raise enough money to set him up for a few months, where he doesn’t have to worry about where he’s going to sleep and what he’s going to eat, then he can get a job and go about his life.”

A VETERAN, NOT UNLIKE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF OTHERS THAT HAVE FALLEN ON HARD TIMES AND ARE LARGELY IGNORED WHILE LIBERALS PISS AND MOAN ABOUT THE “RIGHTS” OF ILLEGALS WE SPEND $100 BILLION A YEAR TO PROVIDE A FREE RIDE TO WHILE THEY CONTRIBUTE NOTHING. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THE HOMELESS VETS, MANY WITH DRUG OR MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, NOT TO GET THE CARE THEY EARNED. OK, I’M DONE NOW.

Union Walmart protests fizzle as a Black Friday tradition
IT REALLY GALLS THE LIBERALS THAT THEY CAN’T BULLY WALMART EMPLOYEES INTO UNIONIZING SO THEY CAN GRAB ALL THAT DUES MONEY TO HELP ELECT DEMOCRATS… PITY.

Unions have stopped trying to use Walmart’s day-after-Thanksgiving ‘Black Friday’ sales to launch public relations blitzes against the corporation, effectively conceding that the once-high profile efforts were making little headway toward organizing a union at the nation’s largest employer

Ritter said the union had determined that Black Friday — traditionally the kick-off of Christmas shopping season and a major event for retailers — was no longer as big of an event due to the growth of online sales.

‘Black Liberation’ Group Vows To Shut Down Black Friday Shopping To Fight Racism

ANOTHER REASON TO SHOP ONLINE.

Black Liberation Front-Seattle, an “assertive” group aimed at fighting racism, also launched a four-hour demonstration called “BlackLivesMatterFriday 4.0 -Racism. It Stops With Me” to show the country that racism is unacceptable.

Approximately 10,000 people have marked “interested” on social media for this event, and over 1,000 people have said they plan on attending the Friday demonstration.

THERE ARE THOSE WHO WANT TO TEAR DOWN AND THOSE WHO WANT TO LIFT UP
‘Miracle Park’ to be built in Rock Hill will be designed specifically for people with special needs


The so-called Miracle Park is a dream of the York County Disabilities Foundation. Last week, the foundation presented the idea to Rock Hill’s City Council, pushing the project forward.

The Miracle Park would sit on a 15-acre piece of land, partially on the current “Winthrop Park.” The land is owned by both the City of Rock Hill (7 acres) and Winthrop University (8 acres). City Council agreed to lease the land to the non-profit for $1 a year, so the Foundation could purse the Miracle Park.

“A miracle field is basically a field made of synthetic rubber so that people with disabilities and wheel chairs can play on these fields,” Norman said.

[CtH: One of my offspring took her kidlets to a park like this and said it made her weepy seeing all the disabled kids having so much FUN.  She’s like me … cries when she’s overflowing with joy.]

Nebraska Approves Keystone XL Pipeline

ONE WORD: MAGA!! (actually an acronym) [CtH: I think it’s an acronym that has become a word, though I dunno if any dictionaries have accepted it!  Other words Trump has added to our lexicon:  bigly and yuge.  I’d like to include covfefe, but I have no idea how to pronounce it or what it actually means!

The Nebraska Public Service Commission approved the Keystone XL pipeline, removing the last regulatory hurdle for the oil project after years of former President Barack Obama’s blocking the pipeline’s approval.

President Donald Trump quickly reversed Obama’s decision after taking office. Trump has pursued an energy policy of “energy dominance,” which sought to undo burdensome energy regulations and open up America’s energy resources.

Student Who Stole A MAGA Hat Off Someone’s Head Faces Year In Jail

SUCKS TO BE YOU, SWEETIE.

UCR is letting people wear this shit on campus?” asked Macias in a video of the incident. “Make American Great Again, really? There were lynchings and genocide and mass deportations.…I fucking hate this country.… And I am not leaving.…We need to get rid of all ya’ll.”

When Vitale asked for his hat back, she said “F*** your freedom of speech boy, your freedom of speech is literally killing a lot of people out there, your hats like these that promote laws and legislation that literally kill and murder people of color.”

[CtH: Good luck getting this witch to cite a single example of a U.S. law that literally kills anyone.  Betcha she demanded HER constitutional rights though.  Hypocrite.]

‘CBS This Morning’ wants Oprah to fill in for fired Charlie Rose: report
SERIOUSLY?

“CBS This Morning” is reportedly “begging” Oprah Winfrey to fill in for former co-host Charlie Rose, who was fired from the network after sexual harassment allegations.

“They are begging Oprah to fill in,” a source told Page Six. “Not full time … But they are hoping she’ll do one day, two days, one hour, fill in ’til Christmas. Anything.”

“Unless you get a superstar [on the show], it’s always going to be, ‘Charlie’s missing,'” an insider told the publication.

Hillary Clinton: I Couldn’t Run A Real Change Campaign Because Of Obama

HOPE AND CHANGE! HOPE AND CHANGE! IT GOT MY SORRY ASS ELECTED TWICE
HILLARY CLINTON:

… I have high regard for the campaign that we put together, and all of the people who were working in it so hard. But I think it is fair to say that it was hard to break through.  I’ve said a few times that this was the first reality TV campaign. My opponent was the first reality TV candidate, and I was, for better or worse, the candidate of reality. And I think it was a shortcoming of the campaign that the work that I’ve done my entire life. The passion I feel for helping people, the record that I have of doing just that never really could break through.

THE FACT I’M A LYING, GREEDY, CORRUPT SKANK WITHOUT ANY MORAL COMPASS WHATEVER, AND EVERYBODY KNEW IT, HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MY GETTING A GRADE ‘A’ BEATDOWN.

[CtH: I wonder when she’ll ever get tired of listening to her own whining.  Never is a literal possibility, I suppose.]

GOP Would Be ‘Much Better Off With The Dem’ Winning in Alabama -Matthew Dowd

OF COURSE, DOWD HAS ALWAYS HAS THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AT HEART.

“The worst possible outcome of the Alabama election for the Republicans is if the Republican wins … It hangs over them through the course of this. They’d be much better off with the Democrat.”

Take a listen. This is supposedly a ‘Republican’ strategist. OMG.

[CtH: Honestly, whenever I hear supposed Republicans talking out their Democrat asses, it makes me wonder what’s in those oppo files the Dems keep carefully locked away.]

O’Malley: Obama Devastated Democratic Party Like a ‘Bad Forest Fire’

Wednesday on ABC’s “Powerhouse Politics” podcast, 2016 Democratic presidential candidate and former Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-MD) said former President Barack Obama’s decision to set up Organizing for America rather than “infusing” his energy into the Democratic Party devastated the party on state and local levels like a “bad forest fire.”

Lock Up Lois Lerner
I’VE BEEN REPULSED BY THIS SNEERING HAG SINCE THE FIRST TIME SHE TESTIFIED BEFORE CONGRESS.  SHE COMMITTED FELONIES AND ABUSED HER POWER WITH NO FEAR OF CONSEQUENCES BECAUSE SHE WAS DOING OBAMA’S BIDDING AND HE PROTECTED HER.  THEN TRUMP APPOINTED A MILQUETOAST WHO PROCEEDED TO RECUSE HIMSELF FROM DOING HIS JOB.

Former IRS official Lois Lerner and her deputy are asking a federal court to keep their testimonies in the Tea Party targeting case private forever, over fear of death threats and potential harm to their families if the documents go public.

Only the lawless Lois Lerner would feel threatened by legal proceedings initiated by her abuse of government power. Calling her and her IRS co-conspirators “criminal thugs” is not a threat but an understatement. What she fears is not violence but that the truth about her crimes, what she did and what she got away with, will be finally and fully known and that she would no longer be able to hide behind a bogus and fraudulent Fifth Amendment pleading before Congress.

2017_11 10 Kids are veterans too

This is doubly true of the wives (and civilian husbands). I’m SO PROUD of the great support Mama Buzz provides her veteran. She’s never donned the uniform, but she definitely SERVES.

Stop Grandstanding About Niger

At The Daily Signal, former Green Beret and Heritage Foundation Fellow Steven Bucci urges politicians and the media to stop unnecessarily politicizing the work that American special forces were conducting in Niger, writing that “grandstanding senators and talking heads don’t help make America safe, but missions just like the one in Niger do.”

EXCERPT: The loss of four special operations soldiers in Niger is a tragedy. We grieve as a nation, rightly, whenever we lose any of the brave young men and women who serve in uniform.

That said, politicians and news media are turning the event into a farce.

Having served as an Army Green Beret for 28 years, I cannot let the mischaracterizations — many by leaders who clearly know better — continue without a comment. …

The U.S. has conducted these kinds of missions around the world since the 1950s. At times we have had as few as a dozen of these operations, and at others several hundred in as many as 80-plus countries simultaneously.

These missions are routine and have short-circuited conflicts on nearly every continent in the world at one time or another.
