Word is out that P-E Trump will nominate Dr. Ben Carson for the cabinet position of Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
The ever watchful Nancy Pelosi honked: “Our country deserves a HUD Secretary with the relevant experience. Dr. Carson is a disturbingly unqualified choice. Dec 5, 2016″
Where was Fancy Nancy when Obama nominated San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro for HUDSEC?
According to Politico, HUD awarded San Antonio $8.6 million in 2008 as part of the national Neighborhood Stabilization Program. On Mayor Castro’s watch, San Antonio failed to properly spend funds.
Oh well. As one tweeter noted, “Corruption is a resume enhancer for Democrats.”
It seems that honesty, integrity, brilliance, and a good work ethic are detractors for Republicans. Plus, you know,
Daughter’s bonfire blowout is tomorrow night. Ex-BIL works for a meat company and he’s furnishing the ribs and pulled pork.

“The fact is in this election we have a candidate for president of the United States who over the course of his lifetime and the course of this campaign has said things about women that are so shocking, so demeaning, I simply will not repeat anything here today,” she said at a campaign rally in New Hampshire.
Language that has been painful for so many of us,” she continued. “Not just as women, but as parents trying to protect our children and raise them to be caring, respectful adults. And as citizens who think our nation’s leaders should meet basic standards of human decency.”
Mooch Scared Of Trump: His “Rhetoric Is Frightening, It Hurts”
Clinton Foundation Donors Expected ‘Benefits In Return For Gifts’
The blistering review — made public Thursday by WikiLeaks — described a tax-exempt public foundation with none of the independent oversight required under federal charity law. The Clinton Foundation reported $187 million in net assets in 2011.
“This was bright line illegal,” Wall Street analyst and philanthropy expert Charles Ortel told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “This is a rogue charity that was out of control for years. And the trustees elected to not correct them. We’re not talking about people with no knowledge of the laws. These are people who can’t claim ignorance.”
The foundation was then led by director Terry McAuliffe, Bill’s most successful political fundraiser and former chairman of the Democratic National Committee who is now Virginia’s governor. McAuliffe gave the Clintons a $1.35 million gift that allowed them to buy their 11-room Chappaqua, New York, mansion in 1999.

Voter Fraud Is Real. Here’s The Proof
Data suggests millions of voter registrations are fraudulent or invalid. That’s enough to tip an election, easily.
It would be silly to assume cases that have been discovered are the only cases of fraud. Indeed according to a Pew Research report from February 2012, one in eight voter registrations are “significantly inaccurate or no longer valid.” Since there are 146 million Americans registered to vote, this translates to a stunning 18 million invalid voter registrations on the books. Further, “More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters, and approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.” Numbers of this scale obviously provide ripe opportunity for fraud.

Obama plans overhaul of child support payment rules for prisoners
The Obama administration, in its final weeks, plans to ease the legal obligations on prisoners to pay for child support while they are locked up, targeting practices that critics say can saddle ex-convicts with crippling debts.
As the first black president of a nation that incarcerates a disproportionately large number of black and Latino men, Obama has made it a priority to address problems that make it difficult for released inmates to reenter society.

Hillary Clinton Goes into Hiding – Will Ride It Out Until Election Knowing Media Will Carry Her Water
Hillary Clinton went into hiding this week.
Her campaign says she is preparing for the third and final debate next Wednesday.
Hillary knows the media will do her bidding while she is away.

They know they can get away with it — Even if they are patently false
Houston 911 operator hung up on thousands of calls because she didn’t ‘want to talk to anyone’
BEHOLD! SEE WHAT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION HATH WROUGHT!
That person, who identified herself as Crenshanda, was 43-year-old Crenshanda Williams, a former 911 operator who on Tuesday was charged with two misdemeanor counts of interference with an emergency telephone call.
According to police, Williams did a whole lot more than hang up in these two instances, though. They claim that between October 2015 and March 2016, she had thousands of “short calls,” which lasted for 20 seconds or less, much like the two above.
“This is Officer Molten. I’m driving on 45 South right now and I am at . . .’” the call began, but she immediately hung up, KIAH reported. Before she did, though, the recording included Williams responding, “Ain’t nobody got time for this. For real.”

Young Actress Walks Off Set, Can’t Say Clinton is Honest in New Ad
“There is so much at stake in this election, and that’s why I’m supporting Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy and… Can we cut?” she says as she interrupts the shoot.
“What’s the problem?” the director asks.
“I can’t say these words,” the woman says. “I just don’t believe what I’m saying.”
The director says, “but you’re an actress.”
“I’m not that good of an actress,” the woman says before walking off the set. “Honest and trustworthy… give me a break.”
Bill Clinton: West Virginia Miners Are Mad Because They Think Climate Change Cost Them Their Jobs
THEY’RE NOT AS STUPID AS YOU THINK THEY ARE, YOU CONTEMPTIBLE PRICK
“They believe climate change cost them all the coal jobs, and they think I sold them out after they voted for me twice, because I agree with it, too,” he said.
This is after he said Hillary Clinton made him visit the state.
“Hillary made me go–although I wanted to–to West Virginia,” he said.
This week’s all-out media assault on Ben Carson’s honesty and integrity has yielded big gains for Carson’s campaign. Disgusted voters sent him $3.5 million dollars, much of it from a wide spectrum of small, grassroots donors. Conservative Intel described Carson’s mailing list “the stuff of legend among political professionals and rival campaigns.”
Remember all those times we were accused of being dirty racists for wanting to know about Obama’s past? Remember how the media never ever let Dan Quayle off the hook for that time he misspelled “potato”?
Obama was touted as the “smartest kid in the class”, “smartest man in any room”, and “smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency”, but there is absolutely no evidence that any of that is remotely true.
He has never allowed his academic transcripts and various test scores to be made public. But if reporters dig hard enough, they can often get such things leaked. The MSM didn’t bother; they just kept repeating the “smartest” meme and said voters who wanted to see documentation were being racists.
The evidence we have public access to suggests Obama is nothing special in the brains department. Yes, he graduated from Harvard, but so did both George W. Bush and Mitt Romney. Obama earned a law degree; Bush earned a business degree; Romney earned both simultaneously.
Remember when Lefties proffered as proof of Dubya’s alleged stupidity that he pronounced nuclear “nucular”? Remember when they totally ignored it when Barry O said “corpse-man” in the same speech where he got the corpsman’s name wrong?
I have a DVD in which a Ph.D. in Nuclear Science also pronounces the word “nucular” … repeatedly. It’s nothing more than a regional dialect thing. So far as I know, “corpse-man” is just absurdly, offensively wrong, particularly coming from the Commander-in-Chief who should know how to pronounce military ranks, dontchathink?
Obama reads “Corpsman” as “Corpse Man”, Gets the Man’s Name Wrong [:54]
The MSM’s faux outrage over Ben Carson suggesting he was once offered a “full scholarship” to West Point falls flat with anyone who remembers how they ignored the time Obama said that there are 57 states in the U.S., and the time he said that the leader of Canada is a “president”, and those times when he said that the language of Austria is “Austrian” and the language of Afghanistan is Arabic, and that time he said that America is “20 centuries” old, and that time when he said 10,000 people had been killed by a Kansas tornado that actually killed 12, and that time he credited 1965 Selma march for inspiring his birth in 1961.
The stinking media even yawned that time he said it would be “unprecedented” for the Supreme Court to invalidate a law passed by Congress. I mean … really? Shouldn’t a former “professor of constitutional law” know more about … you know … constitutional law?
Yes, Obama was elected president of the Harvard Law Review, but it was at a time when popularity and being black mattered more than scholarship. He had no scholarship to speak of, having published only one short, poorly written article for the HLR.
After graduation, he joined an undistinguished law firm, where he tried no cases. He was also never more than a part time instructor at the University of Chicago Law School. The tenured law professors reportedly hated him because he was “lazy, unqualified.” One said that he “had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building.”
Obama was also lauded for his elocutionary skills. But when he’s off the teleprompter, he often rambles, loses his train of thought, and says “uh uh uh” a lot. His beautifully written first autobiography was demonstrably written mostly by Bill Ayers and his second book is as ineloquent as his off-prompter speechifying.
Lipstick is Off the Pig: Obama Without His Teleprompter [5:19]
While Politico and the rest of the Left Stream Media work on tarnishing Carson’s reputation as an honest and trustworthy person, they’ve been giving serial liar Hillary Clinton a total pass for decades.
They didn’t quibble when she said she once tried to join the Marines. Given her high profile antagonism toward the military, that one should have been a jaw dropper. According to her fanciful tale, the Marine recruiter she talked to told her to go away because, “You’re too old, you can’t see and you’re a woman.”
Since it furthered her “female as victim of white male oppression” status, the All Democrat Media let it slide. Ditto her latest whacky tale about having written to NASA when she was 13 saying she wanted to be an astronaut. Supposedly, NASA wrote back saying she couldn’t go into space, because she was a girl. Such a letter would have been illegal under federal law, but hey, glass ceilings and all that.
If these so-called journalists are so interested in the veracity of presidential candidates, maybe they could revisit that sniper fire story from 2008. The MSM cared about her lying back in 2008 because Barack Obama had been coronated by the Democrat machine. Now … Carson’s mistaking a dinner date matters. Totally made up bullets, not so much.
Flashback: Hillary Clinton Under ‘Sniper Fire’ In Bosnia
Dr. Ben Carson bluntly confronted CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota over media bias on Friday when she pressed him to clarify his comments suggesting the U.S. would be “Cuba” if Fox News didn’t exist.
“I really don’t know what you’re talking about,” Camerota said. “Fox News came to dominance in 2001. You think before 2001 the U.S. was a communist country?”
Feeling the anchor was already taking his words out of context, Carson suggested she unknowingly made his point about media bias.
Carson replied sharply, “That’s not what I said, but that’s what you guys love to do.”
When Camerota began interrupting him, Carson cut her off and told her to “listen” so he could explain the meaning of his remarks.
“What I am saying is that the general mainstream media all seems to move in a secular progressive direction,” Carson said. “You know, they would like to create a narrative that certain things are good and certain things are bad according to the way that they see them. And by being able to be the bully pulpit so to speak…you can get a lot of people to start thinking the way that you do.”
But then Fox News came along and offered an “alternative” viewpoint, Carson said.
“If we didn’t have that counterbalance — I wish we didn’t need that counterbalance,” he added. “The media is supposed to be neutral and they’re supposed to be on the side of the people…but because they have become very partisan and very ideological, you need to have a counterbalance.”
Note who is deemed most honest and trustworthy and who is deemed least.
One guess what happens next?
Yep. Politico fabricates a story about how Ben Carson is a Big Fat Liar! The gist is that Carson wrote in his autobiography that, when he was in high school JROTC, he got to meet General Westmoreland, who offered him “a full scholarship” to West Point. Carson told him thanks, but no thanks. He wanted to go into medicine, so never even applied to West Point.
The sticking point? West Point is free. Ergo, no “scholarship” could have been offered.
The stupidity of the story? Carson may have never been aware of this fact. Westmoreland tried to recruit him for the academy, no doubt mentioned it would cost him nothing, and Carson (who never pursued it) interpreted that to mean “full scholarship.”
Well, gosh. Until I read this story, I didn’t know West Point was free either.
So Politico gets called out on THEIR Big Fat Lie and alters the headline and key paragraph. When a story is altered, it’s protocol to put a timed and dated line somewhere explaining what was changed. Politico … that stickler for all things “proper” (like not saying “scholarship”) … didn’t bother with protocol. Oh my goodness. That’s almost like fabricating, isn’t it?
Remember that poll I posted above? Politico put out a second story as a kind of companion to the Carson lie. And wouldn’t you know … it was about the Democrat candidate who was deemed least honest and trustworthy. What a coinkidink!
Politico’s headline started out as “SCOOP: Intelligence chief’s office concludes key Hillary Clinton emails claimed to be ‘TOP SECRET’ were not.”
Since that was a Big Fat Lie, Politico later changed it to “Source: Key Clinton emails did not contain highly classified secrets.”
Reading the story reveals the whole thing is even more flimsy and “shore up that Lying Liar Hillary” biased.
A. An anonymous source allegedly told Politico that the intelligence community has decided the State Dept was right about the classification level of two of Hillary’s emails.
B. When asked about it, State Department spokesman John Kirby said, “As far as I know we’ve received no final decision by the intelligence community with respect to these two emails. As far as we know, that process is ongoing.”
But wait! Stop the presses! Carson’s campaign has admitted that Carson met with Westmoreland in February 1969, not May 1969, as Carson stated in his 1990 autobiography!
Oh noes! How can we ever TRUST a man who misremembers exactly when he had dinner with a guy after more than twenty years?
