Obama still doesn’t get it – optimism, not whining, grows an economy

IT’S SIMPLE. HE HAS NO CLUE HOW AN ECONOMY WORKS AND COULDN’T CARE LESS. HIS FOCUS WAS ON SHOVING SOCIALISM AND RACIAL HATRED DOWN THE AMERICAN PEOPLE’S THROATS. HE REVELED IN THE MISERY HE CAUSED.

What Obama never understood is that there is a close and important correlation between optimism and growth. Optimistic consumers spend money. Optimistic investors buy stocks. Most important, business leaders who view the future positively will invest in growth.

The optimism unleashed on November 8, 2016, was astonishing. The very next month, consumer confidence soared to a 15-year high, according to the Conference Board, “well ahead of analysts’ expectations.” To be precise, the index rose to 107.1 from 98.6; economic gurus were forecasting 101.5. It wasn’t the “current conditions” survey that popped, but rather the “future” outlook that jumped to the highest level since 2003.

Andrew Cuomo calls for World Trade Center to be lit in red, white, and blue after attempted terrorist attack

Trump Blames NYC Terror Attack On Immigration Policies

Today’s attempted mass murder attack in New York City—the second terror attack in New York in the last two months—once again highlights the urgent need for Congress to enact legislative reforms to protect the American people,” Trump said in a statement.
The alleged terrorist Akayed Ullah, 27, entered the U.S. in 2011 through extended family chain migration. The terror attack left four, including Ullah, injured.

Sarah Sanders Gets Into It With CNN Over Fake News Question: ‘I’m Not Finished!’

I ALWAYS CONSIDERED THE LATE TONY SNOW AS THE BEST PRESS SECRETARY I EVER SAW. BUT SARAH SANDERS SURE IMPRESSES ME. FOR ALL THE BITCHING IN THE MEDIA ABOUT BULLYING, THEY ARE BY FAR THE RUDEST AND MOST ILL-MANNERED EVER TO CRAP ON THE PROFESSION. SHE GIVES AS GOOD AS AND BETTER THAN SHE GETS. YOU GOTTA LIKE THAT.

“There’s a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposely misleading the American people. Something that happens regularly. You cannot say that it is an honest mistake when you are purposely putting out information that you know to be false or when you’re taking information that has not been validated, hasn’t been offered with any credibility and continually denied by a number of people including people with direct knowledge of an instance. I am speaking about the number of reports over the last couple weeks. I am stating that there should be a certain level of responsibility in that process.”

Journos Fret Over Sarah Sanders Calling Out Fake News

Journalists lost their minds on Monday when White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders battled CNN’s Jim Acosta over fake news.

“A number of outlets have had to retract and change and rewrite and make editor’s note to a number of different stories,” Sanders said of the false stories being peddled by the likes of CNN, Bloomberg, and ABC. “There’s a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposely misleading the American people.”

Dem Rep. Bobby Rush Sued for $1 Million to Collect Unpaid Loan for Church He Founded

Wellness center connected to church has received $17 million in gov’t grants

FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT FROM ILLINOIS, BOBBY RUSH IS A FORMER BLACK PANTHER WHO IS JUST A BIG A CROOK AS THE REST OF THEM. A YOUNG COMMUNITY ORGANIZER NAMED BARACK OBAMA RAN AGAINST HIM IN 1990. HE WAS DEFEATED SOUNDLY BECAUSE HE WASN’T BLACK ENOUGH FOR CHICAGO’S SOUTH SIDE.

Democratic representative Bobby Rush is being sued for $1 million after failing to make payments on a loan he received for a church he founded in his home district in Illinois.
A wellness center linked to the church has also collected more than $2.6 million in taxpayer-funded government grants in 2017 and more than $17 million in grants since 2008, according to records.

Now, the loan Rush secured has gone delinquent, and the creditor is seeking to recoup the money through the Cook County court system. A $1.1 million judgment was issued against Rush for $542,000 in unpaid principal, $441,000 in interest, and nearly $50,000 in attorney fees.

Jerry Brown: ‘I Don’t Think President Trump Has a Fear of the Lord’
California Governor Jerry Brown went Biblical on Sunday evening, telling CBS News’ 60 Minutes that President Donald Trump does not fear God because he does not believe in climate change.

Ms. Lerner and her former chief lieutenant, Holly Paz, have said they faced death threats in the past, and say they fear any more attention to their behavior would spur a new round of harassment.

They said there’s “exceedingly low” public interest in having their depositions released, and they said tea party groups are pushing for disclosure out of “spite.”

SPITE? IS THAT WHAT YOU CALL COMMITTING CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES?

Dem Senators Call on Trump to Resign ‘Immediately’
“I think he should immediately resign, and if he doesn’t, we should have the investigation,” she said, calling the allegations “credible.”

Three of her colleagues, Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Jeff Merkley (D-OR), agree Trump needs to go. His crimes, they argue, are equal to or worse than those that derailed their colleague Al Franken’s career.

The Latest: Trump blasts Gillibrand over resignation call

President Donald Trump is lashing out at Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has called on him to resign over allegations of sexual misconduct.

In a tweet on Tuesday, Trump calls the New York Democrat “lightweight” and “a total flunky for Chuck Schumer,” the Senate Democratic leader.

Trump says Gillibrand “would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them).”

We’ll teach you not to wish Jake Tapper a “Merry Christmas”

Horror of horrors, when the interview concluded, Ambassador Haley said, “Merry Christmas” to Tapper. Why is that an issue? Because Jake Tapper is Jewish. Despite the fact that this goes on between people of all faiths (or none) all over the country every day at this time of year, you just knew somebody would jump on it.

At the conclusion of his next interview with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Tapper demonstrated how to acknowledge someone of the Jewish faith.

“If I don’t see you before Tuesday,” Tapper told Schiff, “Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year’s as well.”

“Same to you, sir,” Schiff agreed.

Palestinians use ambulances to transport and shield rioters

Bombshell: Roy Moore Accuser Beverly Nelson Admits She Forged Yearbook

OOPS! IMAGINE THAT! NO WONDER “PUBLICITY WHORE” ALLRED WOULDN’T ALLOW ANYBODY TO EXAMINE THE BOOK

Beverly Young Nelson has finally admitted that she forged a portion of the infamous high school yearbook that she and attorney Gloria Allred used as proof of her accusations against U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.

2017_12 Roy Moore yearbook

And in yet another blow to the credibility of ABC News, the disgraced, left-wing network downplayed the bombshell by presenting this admission of forgery as adding “notes” to the inscription. Worse still, the reporter actually coaches Nelson, puts words in her mouth, downplay the enormous significance of her deceit.

Judge recuses in Michael Flynn case

The former Trump national security adviser will be sentenced by Clinton appointee Emmet Sullivan.
Judge Emmet Sullivan was randomly assigned to take over the case after Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself.

A court spokeswoman confirmed to POLITICO that the reassignment was due to Contreras’ recusal, but said the court generally does not disclose the reason that a judge begged off the case.

MY THEORY IS THAT CONTRERAS KNEW MUELLER WITHHELD EXCULPATORY EVIDENCE BEFORE HE PRESSURED KELLY INTO A PLEA DEAL. HE WOULD HAVE HAD TO DISCLOSE THAT OR FACE DISBARMENT.

Morning Joe jumps right to dementia over latest Trump video: ‘that speech, that impairment, is chilling’

DOCTOR JOE COMES UP WITH HIS OWN DIAGNOSIS.

On Thursday, the panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”suggested President Trump’s brief slurred words during his Wednesday speech on recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital are indicative of dementia.

[CtH: Let’s all remember how Obama mis-pronounced words that were written into his prepared speeches, m’kay?  And that time he banged his head on the door to Marine One?  Or that other time when he tried to shake hands with a Marine who was saluting him?  Oh, and definitely, let’s remember that wonderful video of him being locked out of his own office, when he was caught banging on the window trying to get someone to let him in.]

Here’s CNN’s report:

Toward the end of the news conference, some on Twitter and Facebook noted that the President’s usual speech pattern changed and that he started to slur his words — and they speculated about what it could mean. … “People can slur their words for any number of reasons. It can be a sign of problems with a nervous system disorder like a brain tumor or a stroke.”

The Treasury Department paid $220,000 in a previously undisclosed agreement to settle a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment that involved Florida Democrat Alcee L. Hastings, according to documents obtained by Roll Call.

Winsome Packer, a former staff member of a congressional commission that promotes international human rights, said in documents that the congressman touched her, made unwanted sexual advances, and threatened her job. At the time, Hastings was the chairman of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, where Packer worked.

Then There Were Five

December 7, 1941: More than 2,300 American servicemen were murdered in a sneak attack by the Empire of Japan. It drew us directly into a war that had been raging in Europe for more than two years. It changed the course of history and ended a madman’s dream of world domination.

Fast forward 76 years. The USS Arizona still rests in the harbor, along with those joined for eternity. I’ve never been there, but know people who have. You cannot come away from there unmoved if you have a soul. Our WWII veterans are almost all gone now, passing into glory at a rapid rate. After suffering eight years of humiliation at the hands of a man who presided over a country he hated, these few once again have a president who sees them as the legends they are.

World War II Veteran Interrupts Trump’s Pearl Harbor Speech to Sing ‘Remember Pearl Harbor’

During his speech, one of the World War II veterans, Michael “Mickey” Ganitch, interrupted and started singing the song “Remember Pearl Harbor.”

Before President Trump signed a formal proclamation on the 76th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, one veteran of the Japanese attack broke out in song. Trump said that, following the attack, a “battle cry could be heard by American friends and foes alike: Remember Pearl Harbor.”

The veteran standing closest to him smiled and began singing the lyrics to the Sammy Kaye song. “Let’s remember Pearl Harbor as we go to meet the foe. Let’s remember Pearl Harbor, as we did the Alamo,” he sang. “We will always remember how they died for liberty. Let’s remember Pearl Harbor, and go on to victory.”

The following veterans attended Trump’s ceremony, where the president signed a proclamation for Pearl Harbor Day:

  • Michael Ganitch, chief quartermaster, United States Navy, USS Pennsylvania
  • Jack Holder, Flight Engineer, United States Navy, PBY Ford Island
  • Alexander Horanzy, Private, United States Army, Schofield Barracks
  • Lawrence Parry, Private, United States Army, Fort Armstrong
  • Robert Fernandez, Seaman First Class, United States Navy, USS Curtiss
  • George Blake, Staff Sergeant, Coastal Artillery Battery

THEY ARE A PRECIOUS TREASURE THAT CAN NEVER BE REPLACED.

Today we honor Pearl Harbor Heroes. Thank you to all military for your courage and sacrifice!

Here’s the original version of the song: Remember Pearl Harbor by Sammy Kaye

ON PEARL HARBOR DAY Obama Would Post Photos of Himself — TRUMP Invites WWII Veterans to White House

In December 2013 Barack Obama honored the dead from Pearl Harbor by posting a photo of himself

THIS MAN IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE/

In December 2016, on the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks, Barack Obama honored the fallen heroes of Pearl Harbor with another photo of himself.
On December 7, 2017, President Trump honored the fallen of Pearl Harbor by inviting the survivors to the White House.

EVEN ON SUCH A SOLEMN OCCASION, THAT LITTLE PIMPLE FROM #FAKE NEWS STILL HAS TO BE A PAIN.

Frankenbooger, Franken-goner

In full disclosure I can’t stand this overbearing loudmouth punk. Never could. When I first saw him on SNL I wondered where the hell they found this squinty-eyed little moron. Through massive vote fraud, he actually managed to steal a seat in the US Senate from Norm Coleman. His entire tenure has been fraught with crass, vulgar behavior. During Senate hearings he’s been rude, profane, and boorish. Well, karma’s a bitch, and it looks like it may have bitten him in the hind quarters … finally.  Check this out:

‘It’s my right as an entertainer’: Franken staffer comes forward as 7th accuser of sexual misconduct

It appears the worst is not yet behind Al Franken. The Democratic Minnesota Senator was hit by another sexual harassment allegation on Wednesday, bringing the total up to seven.

“He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me. It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like ‘Wait, what is happening?’ But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked. I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it towards the door and he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer.’”

As Franken’s support collapses, Democrats expect resignation

Though the writing appeared to be on the wall, Franken’s departure was not certain. A tweet posted Wednesday evening on Franken’s Twitter account said: “Senator Franken is talking with his family at this time and plans to make an announcement in D.C. tomorrow. Any reports of a final decision are inaccurate.” Late in the day, Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York added his voice. “I consider Senator Franken a dear friend and greatly respect his accomplishments, but he has a higher obligation to his constituents and the Senate, and he should step down immediately,” Schumer said.

WHEN SCHUMER SAYS IT’S TIME TO GO, PACK YOUR BAGS.

[CtH: Makes me sick they’re leaving it up to him, while simultaneously talking about maybe blocking Moore from taking his seat if he wins!]

MPR Reporting Al Franken to Resign on Thursday

UPDATE: Sen. Franken’s official Twitter account replied to the tweet, saying that the Senator had not yet made a decision. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/christinerousselle/2017/12/06/breaking-al-franken-to-resign-on-thursday-n2419169

So, What Happens to Al Franken’s Seat If He Resigns? The walls are closing in on Sen. Al Franken, with a seventh accuser stepping forward today and multiple Democrats calling for his resignation in the aftermath, including DNC chair Tom Perez and more than 20 Senators (and counting).

Franken is expected to give remarks tomorrow and, well, it’d be pretty crazy if he didn’t resign. The former SNL star’s time in public service should be drawing to a close, and provided it did, what happens next in Minnesota politics? Democratic Governor Mark Dayton is given the ability to make a “temporary appointment to fill any vacancy,” according to state law.

In other words, Dayton can pick whoever he wants and this pick is guaranteed to be a Democrat. Which Democrat? That is still up in the air, but leading candidates would have to be Rep. Keith Ellison, Attorney General Lori Swanson, State Auditor Rebecca Otto and Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith.

MY PERSONAL GUESS IS HE’LL PICK THE MUSLIM RACE HUSTLER. HE’S THE MOST RADICAL OF THE BUNCH (I HOPE).

IN OTHER NEWS: REMEMBER THAT IMPEACHMENT VOTE FROM CONGRESSMAN GORK, THE CAVEMAN?  YEAH, IT DIDN’T GO SO WELL.

An attempt to impeach Trump today failed 364-58

There are really two ways to look at this effort. One is that this attempt to impeach President Trump got slapped down hard today.  The other is that there are now 58 Democrats willing to attach their names to this desperate action which their own leadership is officially against, at least for the moment.  Again, the message isn’t ‘No’ it’s ‘Not yet.’ The White House responded by labeling Rep. Green and those who voted with him extremists. “Their time would be better spent focusing on tax relief for American families and businesses, and working to fund our troops and veterans through the holiday season rather than threaten a government shutdown.”

  • G. H. W. Bush (1989-92) 2.3%
  • G. W. Bush (2001-08) 2.1%
  • Truman (1946-52) 1.7%
  • Obama (2009-15) 1.5%

President Trump’s first year in office will beat Barack Obama’s best year ever. President Trump has seen quarterly GDP rates of 1.2%, 3.1% and 3.3%.  The New York Federal Reserve revised its estimated fourth quarter GDP of 2017 to 3.93. This will give President Trump an annual GDP rate of 2.9 in 2017 or possibly higher.

At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.” He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.”

[CtH: Typical Obama. He has a long history of taking credit for other’s successes, while denying (like Hillary) that any of his numerous failures had anything to do with him. Also, typical of Obama is the backward tilt of his head, so he’s always looking down his nose at everyone. ]

Obama Invokes Nazi Germany, Warns Against Voters Becoming ‘Complacent’ The two-term Democrat expressed the importance of a free press and urged the country not to “grow complacent,” saying “we have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.” Hinz writes Obama then brought up the specter of Adolf Hitler, who came to power in Democratic Germany amid the financial crisis of the 1930’s. “Sixty million people died…” he reports Obama said. “So, you’ve got to pay attention. And vote.” On Twitter, Hinz called the comments “remarkable” and framed them as a rebuke of current president Donald Trump. Take that, @realDonaldTrump: @BarackObama makes clear his view that a complacent America could be headed the way of Nazi Germany. Read his remarkable comments at #EconomicClub of Chicago.

[CtH: Mr. FORMER President, sir, we were paying attention and we VOTED.  That’s why Hillary isn’t president.]

Franklin Graham: No President in My Lifetime Has Defended the Christian Faith Like Trump

In a Dec. 1 post on Facebook, the day the tree was lit, Rev. Graham said, “Never in my lifetime have we had a president willing to take a strong, outspoken stand for the Christian faith like President Donald J. Trump has.” “Whether you are Protestant, evangelical, Orthodox, Catholic — all Christians need to get behind him with our prayers,” said Graham.

“For Christians this is a holy season, the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Christmas story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all – the gift of God’s love for all of humanity.

CAN YOU IMAGINE OBAMA SAYING THAT? NEITHER CAN I.

The Midnight Ride of Pistol Pete

My beloved child bride was tending Miss Olivia, who wasn’t feeling well, so I turned in about 8:00PM. Someone locked the bottom door of our apartment building, which is broken and there is no key for, just the deadbolt that all tenants can open. She had to ring the buzzer shortly after 9 and I’ve been up since.

I leave for work in an hour and a half so I thought I’d take a minute to post some things I didn’t get around to yesterday.

One week from today is the showdown in Alabama. Trump has finally given his full support to Judge Moore and the RNC is funding his campaign again. This seems to be a sign they know he’s going to win despite their best efforts to screw him over. The left, though, never gives up. They sense that Roy Moore is heading toward victory.

Alabama voters doubt accusations enough that they may feel comfortable sending a message of contempt for Washington, both D.C. and Post

If there was a turning point in Roy Moore’s political fortunes, it was the press conference Gloria Allred held with accuser Beverly Nelson, who emotionally described what she said was a sexual assault behind a diner at which she worked. That press conference gave Moore two things he needed politically: a chance to make Allred an issue in the campaign, and a piece of physical evidence to attack, the handwriting in the yearbook.

Mitch McConnell Folds on Opposition to Roy Moore: ‘We’re Going to Let the People of Alabama Decide’

“Well, I think — we’re going to let the people of Alabama decide a week from Tuesday who they want to send to the Senate. And then we’ll address the matter appropriately,” McConnell said, insinuating that he would back a Senate Ethics Committee investigation of the allegations against Moore when Moore wins on Dec. 12.

Soros Army in Alabama to Register Convicted Felons to Vote Against Roy Moore

HEY, IT HELPED THE DEMOCRATS WIN IN VIRGINIA.

The aim of the effort has been to get as many felons as possible on the roster before last Monday, the deadline to register in order to vote in Alabama’s Dec. 12 senate special election that pits Republican Roy Moore against Democratic challenger Doug Jones. The man spearheading the campaign has stated outright that his effort is meant to ensure a Democratic victory in Alabama.

The thousands of felons reportedly newly registered over the past few weeks were most likely not included in any recent polling on the Alabama senate race put out by major firms.

[CtH: What does it say about the Democratic Party that they feel confident that FELONS will vote for THEIR candidates?]

Trump’s Plan To Overhaul National Monuments Law Is All About ‘Righting Past Overreach’

TRUMP SPOKE IN UTAH TODAY AND RETURNED 2 MILLION ACRES THAT OBAMA ILLEGALLY CONFISCATED TO STOP ENERGY EXPLORATION.

Trump will sign orders to shrink the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments as recommended by Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. However, that’s only the first step in the administration’s plan for the Antiquities Act.

Feinstein: Case ‘Being Put Together’ Against Trump For Obstruction of Justice

Democrat Dianne Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, said on Meet the Press that it is becoming clear that President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey represents an obstruction of justice — a case she believes special counsel Robert Mueller is now focused on.

“You cannot charge a president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power to fire Comey and his constitutional authority to tell the Justice Department who to investigate, who not to investigate,” Dershowitz said during an interview with Fox News.  “We have precedents that clearly establish that.”

Puerto Rican Refugees Could Flip Florida, Put Impeachment in Play
I HEARD THIS ON RUSH TODAY… THIS IS FRIGHTENING
Remember the big hurricane that wiped out Puerto Rico? The publisher of a newspaper in Puerto Rico is reporting that, by their count, 320,000 Puerto Ricans have immigrated to the United States. Seventy percent of them to Florida. Now, the publisher of the Puerto Rican newspaper says that all of these people are very disappointed in the response of the Trump administration to help Puerto Rico recover. She believes by the end of 2018 there will be nearly 400,000 to 500,000 immigrants — think illegal immigrants — in Florida, and, if 60% of them register Democrat, then Florida ever voting for a Republican presidential candidate may be lost for as long as we can see.

Report: FBI Agent Dismissed From Mueller’s Russia Probe Changed Comey’s Language on Clinton to ‘Extremely Careless’
THERE WAS A REASON FOR CHANGING THE WORDING.

The shift from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” which may appear pedestrian at first glance, reflected a decision by the FBI that could have had potentially significant legal implications, as the federal law governing the mishandling of classified material establishes criminal penalties for “gross negligence.”

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, raised questions over why the change was made after receiving documents from the FBI last month, but the identity of who was behind the edit has not been reported until now.

Byron York: In Trump-Russia probe, was it all about the Logan Act?

2017_12 05 Logan Act toon by Terrell
In short, there’s no doubt the Logan Act, a law dismissed as a joke or an archaic irrelevancy or simply unconstitutional by many legal experts, played a central role in the Obama administration’s aggressive and enormously consequential investigation of its successor.

Democrats began accusing Trump of Logan Act violations in the summer of 2016, immediately after the Republican convention, when Trump sarcastically invited Russia to produce the 30,000-plus emails that Hillary Clinton deleted rather than turn over to investigators. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said during a July 27 news conference. “I think that you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press — let’s see if that happens, that’ll be nice.”

GOP Senate Repeals Obamacare Tax… Saves 6.7 Million Working Americans $2085 Each Year
In 2009 President Barack Obama repeatedly claimed the Obamacare surtax was not a tax.
As Americans for Tax Reform noted: Obama famously told George Stephanopoulos the Obamacare surtax was not actually a tax
“Families ought to be able to make decisions about what they want to buy and what works for them — not the government,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said, hailing the accomplishment.
“I believe if people don’t want to buy the ObamaCare insurance, they shouldn’t have to pay a tax penalty to the IRS.”

This will come to bite his sycophants in the press and his loathsome Marxist supporters. And not just because feuds with President Trump usually end up worse for the experience.

“What I would say is Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, all these various platforms are extraordinarily powerful tools, and those tools can be used for good and they tools can be used for ill,” he said.
President Trump uses his Twitter account as a laser dot to distract the simple minded.

Michael Flynn… It’s Complicated

Actually, not so much when you get right down to it. Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI. He could have been charged with a number of other offenses. This led to speculation that he flipped and is cooperating with the Mueller inquisition in his jihad against President Trump. The Dow plunged about 300 points after the news broke but gained most of it back by the end of the day. At this point it’s all speculation. Trump’s attorney says it’s a nothing burger, as does Andrew McCarthy. The left is making messes in their underwear at the fantasy of the president’s demise dances in their heads like so many sugar plums. I went to Yahoo, which is as hard left as HuffPo, and tried to read some of the comments. They were absolutely giddy at the thought of a possible impeachment.

Michael Flynn Pleads Guilty to Lying to the FBI; Now Cooperating with Mueller

ABC’s Brian Ross: Flynn Prepared To Testify Against Trump, Trump Family, White House Staff 
JUST IN: @BrianRoss on @ABC News Special Report: Michael Flynn promised “full cooperation to the Mueller team” and is prepared to testify that as a candidate, Donald Trump “directed him to make contact with the Russians.”
https://t.co/aiagnvr8eS pic.twitter.com/r8u2LWAd0O
UPDATE: ABC News has deleted the above video of Ross’ report from Friday morning after investigative reporter Brian Ross retracted the explosive claim that Flynn would be willing to testify against Trump.
Ross said on ABC World News Tonight that incoming President Trump, not candidate Trump, instructed Flynn to speak to the Russians, a chasm between the original report that the Republican nominee made the request.
ANOTHER FACT TOO GOOD TO CHECK
He said the President asked Flynn to contact Russia during the campaign. He’s now clarifying that statement, saying, according to Flynn, candidate Trump asked him during the campaign to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other hot spots and then after the election, the President-elect asked him — and told him to contact Russia on other issues, including working together to fight ISIS, David.”

Donald Trump ‘the candidate’ did not commit a crime: Gregg Jarrett

Former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn plead guilty Friday to charges of lying to the FBI. Now there are reports Flynn was urged by then-candidate Donald Trump to talk to the Russians in potential violation of the Logan Act, a 1799 law which bars private citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.
But Fox News anchor and attorney Gregg Jarrett told the FOX Business Network’s Neil Cavuto this would not violate the Logan Act.
“No, it wouldn’t…Nobody’s ever been prosecuted under it. Why? Because the federal courts, especially a New York U.S. federal court, said in 1964 it’s unconstitutional,” Jarrett said.

What the Flynn Plea Means
ANDREW McCARTHY EXPLAINS IT AS WELL AS ANYBODY
Flynn, an early backer of Donald Trump and a fierce critic of Obama’s national-security policies, was generally despised by Obama administration officials. Hence, there has always been cynical suspicion that the decision to interview him was driven by the expectation that he would provide the FBI with an account inconsistent with the recorded conversation — i.e., that Flynn was being set up for prosecution on a process crime.
While initial reporting is portraying Flynn’s guilty plea as a major breakthrough in Mueller’s investigation of potential Trump-campaign collusion with the Russian regime, I suspect the opposite is true.
In his guilty-plea allocution (the part of a plea proceeding in which the defendant admits what he did that makes him guilty), the accomplice explains the scheme and the actions taken by himself and his co-conspirators to carry it out. This goes a long way toward proving the case against all of the subjects of the investigation.
That is not happening in Flynn’s situation. Instead, like Papadopoulos, he is being permitted to plead guilty to a mere process crime.
Meanwhile, the only major case Mueller has brought, against former Trump-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and an associate, has nothing to do with the 2016 election. It is becoming increasingly palpable that, whatever “collusion” means, there was no actionable, conspiratorial complicity by the Trump campaign in the Kremlin’s machinations.

ROGER STONE: Mueller Used False Intelligence From Joe Biden & Susan Rice To Charge General Flynn

Dirty Cop Comey Gloats After General Flynn Pleads Guilty
Dirty cop Comey gloated after it was reported that General Michael Flynn will plead guilty to lying to the FBI deep state operatives in the ongoing Trump witch hunt today.
Once again — this verdict has NOTHING TO DO with Trump-Russia collusion.
It’s just a way for the Democrat media and Deep State to erase an election and eliminate Donald Trump.
After the news broke of Flynn, Comey gloated by quoting Bible scripture saying ‘justice will roll down like water..’, a quote from the book of Amos. He attached an Instagram picture of the Great Falls of the Potomac to the tweet.
Comey is quoting Amos 5:24 which is interpreted by many as a threat of chastisement– judgment will roll over the land and bring justice. The righteous will prevail and drive out the wicked.
James Comey has a lot of nerve acting holier than thou after he leaked classified memos of his conversations with President Trump to a friend in order to prompt a Special Counsel.

Trump White House Caught Off Guard by Michael Flynn Plea: ‘Their Own Counsel Didn’t Know’
“No one in the White House was prepared.”
That is how Politico began its article Friday afternoon, reporting that the White House legal team dealing with the Russia investigation, headed by Ty Cobb, was taken completely by surprise when former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI earlier in the day.
As Breitbart News had already more than a week ago, the New York Times reported on Thanksgiving that Flynn’s lawyers had terminated an agreement with President Donald Trump’s legal team to share information about the probe. As the Times noted, that termination would have made sense if Flynn had begun cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. And, indeed, other reports in the days that followed seemed to indicate that was likely.

Rush Limbaugh Explains Why Flynn’s Guilty Plea Shows Mueller Has NOTHING on Trump
“But there is nothing unusual about that. Once again, the lack of understanding by the drive-by media reporters — oh — Flynn’s pulling out of the joint agreement to share information, that means he’s getting ready to flip.”
“No, it meant he was getting ready to make a deal with the prosecutor, as such, it becomes unethical for the two lawyers or teams to communicate with each other when one of the people involved is going to cop a plea,” Limbaugh said.

THE LEFT ARE WETTING THEMSELVES
JENNIFER RUBIN IS WAPO’S “CONSERVATIVE”
FROM WAPO:
Flynn could deliver a knockout blow to Trump
Trump’s defenders will argue that this still does not touch on the underlying issue of collusion with Russia. That’s true but misses the point. If there was collusion, Flynn almost certainly would have known about it. He was both Trump’s closet foreign policy adviser and a pro-Russia operator who traveled to Russia to give a lavishly compensated speech and appeared on RT, Russia’s propaganda network, which he asserted was no different than any American news outlet. (RT has since been required to register as a foreign agent.) Trump can claim all he wants that the Russia investigation is a hoax, but if Flynn provides direct evidence implicating Trump, the president’s days in office are numbered.

MSNBC Contributor On Flynn Charges: ‘Historic Day’, ‘Could Be The Beginning Of The End’
MSNBC contributor and Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks declared that it “could be the beginning of the end” over Michael Flynn’s guilty plea.
“So, yes, this is a historic day and could be the beginning of the end. I think the comparison to John Dean is very apt, because he was the person who had the inside knowledge and who really opened the doors to what was really going on in the White House,” Wine-Banks stated.
“And that could be what is happening here with Flynn,” she added.

FROM LEGAL INSURRECTION:
Mueller’s Quest for The Donald: Making sense of the Michael Flynn plea
Mueller wants The Donald more than anything Mueller ever has wanted before in his prosecutorial and law enforcement career.
A somewhat moribund Russia-collusion conspiracy community sprang back to life instantaneously. The treason-choir found its voice again.
Pundits speculated endlessly about what it all means — in a distinctly binary manner: Trump is a gonner, or it’s a big nothing burger.
The Logan Act, that never-enforced hobgoblin of small minds, was trending.
So what to make of the latest feeding frenzy?
The only thing of which I am certain is that Mueller wants Donald Trump to take a perp walk, or at least be impeached based on the findings of Mueller’s investigation. Mueller wants it more than Mueller has ever wanted anything before in his law enforcement and prosecutorial life. And he will stop at nothing to get The Donald. Sure, he’ll charge or convict Manafort and Flynn, and anyone else he can find, but they are just stepping stones.

White House Christmas: Then and Now

As usual, CtH got here first. Thinking of the dichotomy between the Obama clan pretending to be Christian to keep up appearances, and the Trump family, who truly love God. Contrast and compare the two. It’s unfair, I know, to compare the grace and beauty of the First Lady with the lumbering amazon she replaced.

Here’s how the Obama family decorated the White House for their last holiday

THE NORMAL FAWNING OVER ANYTHING THE OBAMAS DID

Dec. 23, 2016, 11:25 AM  No one decks the halls quite like the Obama family.  The White House has been transformed for the family’s last holiday living there, complete with snowball arches, a 19-foot Douglas fir tree, and a gingerbread replica of their famous address.  Step inside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to see how the First Family celebrates Christmastime.

HERE ARE A FEW PICTURES PLUS TWO LINKS TO PHOTO ARRAYS OF THE WHITE HOUSE,  CAN’T FIND ANY REFERENCE TO GOD, JESUS, OR THE VIRGIN BIRTH. JUST HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY.

Snowmen line the corridor, where a portrait of Hillary Clinton hangs.

Merry Christmas is back at the White House: Trumps unveil their card with no repeat of the Obamas’ Happy Holidays

On Monday, the Trump family debuted the 2017 holiday card, which wishes Americans a ‘Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’

This is a departure from President Obama’s politically correct card of 2016, which wished Americans a ‘joyous holiday season’

Both cards now are on display at the ‘Bookseller’s’ area of the White House, which is now decorated for the busy holiday season

After watching the dancers perform from the entry and into the hall, Mrs. Trump walked down to the State Dining Room, where three tables of children were decorating small wreaths. One young girl handed her wreath to the first lady, who held it up and remarked, “So beautiful.”
