The Games People Play

Apparently “silly season” is not limited to electoral nonsense in D.C. The democrats and the media whores have made Republican presidents the object of non-stop abuse for decades. Then a creature not born of the swamp descended on Washington like a cyclone in a wheat field. Not content to silently take the abuse democrats dish out the way Bush did, Trump hits back. Sometimes swiftly, as in the CFPB attempted coup, other times like Chinese water torture.

Winning: Donald Trump Calls Democrats’ Budget Bluff on Amnesty
President Donald Trump stepped up his budget confrontation with Democratic leaders today and called their bluff on their mumbled threats to block the 2018 budget if it did not include the unpopular ‘Dreamer’ amnesty.

Instead, the Democrats retreated to Congress where they lobbed complaints at Trump. The retreat left amnesty advocates in the lurch, despite months — and years — of media-magnified claims that the American public wants a no-strings amnesty for the 3 million ‘dreamers,’ plus their millions of chain-migration relatives.

Trump dared “them to shut the government” and they folded, said Mark Krikorian.

WINNING! POTUS Trump Gives Presser Next to Empty Chairs for Pelosi-Schumer …. PELOSI FREAKS OUT

Senile Nancy Pelosi threw a tantrum because Trump gave a press conference next to two empty seats after the House Minority leader and her fossil counterpart in the Senate, Chuck Schumer decided to be a no-show Tuesday
“Meeting with ‘Chuck and Nancy’ today about keeping government open and working. Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!” Trump tweeted.

In a stunning visual, President Trump gave a press conference next to two empty seats where Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were supposed to be sitting.

REMEMBER THIS FROM THE RNC CONVENTION?

Trolling the two butthurt Dems with the empty seats in the Roosevelt Room reminded me of another notable empty chair scenario. Picture it. The year was 2012. The Oscar-winning actor/director/legend Clint Eastwood entered the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the site of the RNC Convention, in dramatic fashion with the backdrop screen showing a large silhouette of him from the film “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”. The speakers in the arena were blaring the score from the film. The crowd ate it up.

SPEAKING OF BUTTHURT:

CNN to boycott White House Christmas party

Under fire from Trump, the network says it would be ‘inappropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests.’

“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a CNN spokesperson said. “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.”

NOTICE THEY’RE REFERRING TO IT AS A “CHRISTMAS PARTY?”…THINK THEY’LL HAVE TO ISSUE A RETRACTION?

[CtH:  Methinks those who attend will somehow manage to soldier through their devastating disappointment. ::snork::]

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Has Best Response Ever To CNN Boycotting The White House Christmas Party

“Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN,” tweeted Sanders.

[CtH: ROFLLLLLLLLLLLL}

Tensions are running high between the White House and CNN after President Trump tweeted the news network represents America poorly around the world.
“@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!”, tweeted Trump on Saturday.

Ted Cruz Shuts Down Bernie Sanders’ Thoughts on Taxes, Socialism

I HEARD SOME AUDIO CLIPS OF THIS DEBATE THIS MORNING.  IF BERNIE SANDERS IS THE DEM NOMINEE IN 2020 THIS WILL BE FUN… HE HAS NO CLUE ABOUT THE REAL WORLD.

[CtH: It’s no surprise that Democrats seem to dominate in politics and academia, both places where they are largely protected from reality.]

Democrats have one talking point on taxes: ‘It’s a tax cut on the rich.’ And they say it over and over and over and over again in response to everything.

The most important thing for you to know when you’re at home is when they say rich, they mean taxpayer. Every time they say ‘rich’ they mean taxpayers. Why is it?

And the reason is there are not millionaires and billionaires to pay for all the socialism Bernie and the Democrats want.

Bernie really is feelin’ the burn on that one.

Black Lives Matter plans ‘black’ Christmas to ‘resist white capitalism’
Black Lives Matter Los Angeles called on people to refuse to buy from white-owned businesses and take that money to invest in the black community from Nov. 25 to Jan. 1. 2018. The boycott serves as an attempt to resist President Donald Trump and his ties to white capitalism, the group added.

NBC News Fires Matt Lauer Over Allegations of Sexual Misconduct

SHOCK!!

Along with Charlie Rose at CBS, Lauer is the second morning anchor to lose his job over sexual misconduct allegations. Last month NBC fired political commentator Mark Halperin after numerous women claimed he had behaved inappropriately with them while he was working at ABC/Disney.

Lauer’s co-anchor, Savannah Guthrie, and Hoda Kotb opened Wednesday morning’s Today Show with a chyron that read “NBC News Terminates Matt Lauer.

Almost Every Graduate Of DC High School Was Truant, Yet All Of Them Were Accepted To College
The majority of graduating students at a Washington, D.C. high school did not attend more than six weeks of high school, but still managed to get into college, an investigation into the students’ records found.

The District of Columbia Public Schools system policy states that students who misses a class more than 30 times should fail that class, according to WAMU.

Despite these absences, all of the 2017 seniors got into a college, a feat for which the school received high praise. One student said the class-wide acceptance was a repudiation of all those who said the school — where at one point only 3 percent of students met the reading standards — couldn’t do it.

Some teachers who spoke to the outlet said they felt they had to graduate failing students due to pressure from the high school administration. Other teachers said the lack of expectations allowed students to do what they wanted and not show up for class.

Bernie Sanders Was Just Nominated for a Grammy
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may not have won the Democratic nomination for president, but he was just nominated for a Grammy Award. Sanders, along with actor Mark Ruffalo, received the nod for the audiobook recording of Sanders’ book “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In” in the category of Best Spoken Word Album.

Barack Obama won the Grammy in 2006 for “Dreams From My Father” and in 2008 for “The Audacity of Hope.” Bill Clinton received the honor in 2005 for “My Life.”

A Big Night for Democrats

JUST MY OPINION
Virginia had been turning blue for a very long time, pushed by the northern suburbs that are actually part of the corrupt DC swamp. The most affluent counties in the country are located there. I get the sense that after tens of millions of dollars, some of the filthiest tactics imaginable, and finally getting a win after a series of stinging defeats, they will consider this validation for their non-stop assault on President Trump and everything he stands for. Their bed partners, the Enslaved Press have spearheaded the attacks ever since election day last year. They will continue the ham-handed beatdown of all that is right with this country. The GOP better take notice.

Democrats End Losing Streak
Ralph Northam holds on to become Virginia’s next governor
The win comes after a long string of defeats for Democrats that followed their crushing losses last November, when Republicans maintained control of both chambers of Congress and took the presidency.
The win further solidifies Virginia as a blue state: Democrats there have now won two straight gubernatorial elections, carried the state in three straight presidential elections, and have held both the state’s Senate seats since 2009. In 2016, failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton carried Virginia by five points.
For Gillespie, this is the second defeat in a statewide Virginia election in just three years—he unsuccessfully challenged incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Warner in 2014, losing by a small margin.

Democrat Phil Murphy Wins New Jersey Governor’s Race
Democratic candidate Phil Murphy beat Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (R.) on Tuesday night in the race to replace term-limited Gov. Chris Christie (R.).
Murphy morphed from a Goldman Sachs executive to a diehard progressive, campaigning for a $15 minimum wage, the legalization of marijuana, and standing against President Donald Trump, the New York Times reports.
In his pitch, Murphy told voters that New Jersey is “broken” and needs higher taxes on the wealthy.
http://freebeacon.com/politics/democrat-phil-murphy-wins-new-jersey-governors-race/

New Jersey winner: Victory sends a message to Trump
New Jersey’s next governor, Democrat Phil Murphy, says his party’s victory sends a message to President Donald Trump that the county is “better” than his politics of division.
Northam said in his victory speech that the eyes of the nation were on Virginia on Election Tuesday.
“Virginia has told us to end the divisiveness, that we do not condone hatred and bigotry,” he added. “In Virginia, it is going to take a doctor to heal our differences. I’m here to let you know the doctor is in. And this doctor will be on call the next four years.”
Northam also praised the state’s growing diversity and said he would work to make the state more inclusive. “Our lights will be on, our doors will be open,” he said.

De Blasio Wins Another 4 Years As NYC Mayor
During the campaign, other major progressive figures threw their weight behind de Blasio. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed him as candidate, as well as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
“Everything that Mayor de Blasio is trying to do is exactly the opposite of what Donald Trump is trying to do,” Sanders said previously. “This mayor is leading the city in a way to bring us together.”

National Donations Help Transgender Win Statehouse Race in Virginia
Transgender activists spent $60 per vote in Virginia to defeat conservative Delegate Bob Marshall.
Danica Roem, a man living as a woman, got 10,800 votes in Manassas Park City and Prince William County after spending more than $600,000 in direct donations — mostly from transgender political groups — and getting plenty of support from local media. Thirteen-term Marshall’s campaign was largely ignored by business donors, such as the local Chamber of Commerce. The lack of funding made it difficult for Marshall to highlight Roem’s radical agenda, which includes pushing the transgender ideology in kindergartens

Laura Ingraham on Ed Gillespie: If You Try to Be Half-In Half-Out with Trump – You End Up Political Road Kill
Laura Ingraham hammered Ed Gillespie after his loss Tuesday in the Virginia gubernatorial race.
Gillespie tried to play both sides of the GOP pro-Trump and Party elite — And lost… BIGLY.
Laura Ingraham: Remember last night, what did I say? My book, “Billionaire at the Barricades Populist Revolution from Reagan to Trump,” I made this point really consistently that there is no middle ground with conservative populism. That is the wave of the future. That there is no constituency for open borders, open markets, and endless military interventionalism.

Dem Wins in Virginia, New Jersey: Not a Repudiation of Trump, but a Warning
Pundits are calling Tuesday’s results a repudiation of Trump. That is more than a stretch: it is flatly contradicted by some of the data. Republican Jill Vogel, running for Lieutenant Governor in Virginia, hitched herself to Trump and out-performed the GOP establishment candidate at the top of the ticket, Ed Gillespie, by tens of thousands of votes.
It would be more accurate to point out that, once again, the Republican establishment came up short. Someone in the Gillespie campaign actually thought it would be a good idea to campaign with Condoleezza Rice — who, for all her merits, is a relic of the George W. Bush administration. Gillespie belatedly embraced Trump supporters, but it seems clear from local results that there were more than a few conservatives who were reluctant to be seduced. A late conversion might have been possible for another candidate, but not one who had already run and lost statewide.

Democrat ‘Not Excited’ to Vote Northam: ‘Purely a Vote for the Democratic Party’

NeverTrump ‘Republicans’ Gloat over Democrat Victory in Virginia
The small but vocal contingent of “NeverTrump” Republicans — those who swore never to vote for Donald Trump in the 2016 election, even if that meant handing the country to Hillary Clinton and the Democrats — were exuberant Tuesday night, as Republican gubernatorial candidates went down to defeat in New Jersey and Virginia.
It was the first “victory” for NeverTrump, who cast Tuesday’s result as a vindication of their warnings about Trump.

Anti-Trump Prince Alwaleed – a BIG Clinton DONOR – is Jailed in Corruption Sweep in Saudi Arabia

In December 2015 Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal slammed Donald Trump for proposing a ban on Muslim immigrants in the US until the government could alleviate security concerns.
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is a top Clinton Foundation donor.

Campus Watch reported:   Some are upset that the Clinton Foundation accepted donations from Middle Eastern countries with terrible records on women’s rights. In “Hillary Clinton Faces Test of Record as Women’s Advocate,” the New York Times writes:

Saudi Arabia has been a particularly generous benefactor to the Clinton Foundation, giving at least $10 million since 2001, according to foundation disclosures. At least $1 million more was donated by Friends of Saudi Arabia, co-founded by a Saudi Prince.

On Sunday Prince Alaweed was arrested in a corruption sweep.

Sen. Rand Paul Assaulted by Next-door Neighbor

“Paul told troopers that his neighbor came onto his property and tackled him from behind, forcing him to the ground and causing pain.”
THE SENATOR WAS ASSAULTED WHILE MOWING HIS LAWN. CAN YOU IMAGINE ANY DEMOCRAT ACTUALLY DOING YARD WORK? MOST OF THEM HAVE ILLEGALS DOING THEIR LANDSCAPING.

“Senator Paul was blindsided and the victim of an assault. The assailant was arrested and it is now a matter for the police,” says Kelsey Cooper, State Communications Director for Office of U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY).

[CtH: I read on Facebook that Rand suffered serious rib fractures, not just cracked, but actually broken.]

Alabama Fan Puts Cigarette In Face Of Cop, Gets Dragged Out
One Alabama fan decided to try and press her luck Saturday night at Bryant-Denny stadium by enjoying a smoke break from her seat when a police officer asked her to put it out.

Sarcastically, she puts the cigarette up to the officer’s face, almost as if she was offering him a drag.

The officer was not amused, as he brought out the handcuffs immediately.

Trump greets Japanese emperor with a handshake and nod – but no bow
U.S. President Donald Trump greeted Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko on Monday with a genteel handshake and nod, but no bow, avoiding the pitfall of U.S. President Barack Obama who was criticized at home for his deep bow to the monarch.
Hillary Clinton shook hands and air-kissed the empress on both cheeks, then took her hand as they entered the palace when she met the royal pair as secretary of state in 2011, a month or so after the triple disasters of an earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown hit northeastern Japan in March of that year.

Democrats’ civil war isn’t bringing them closer to understanding why they lost
Much of the base wants to go “full Bernie,” and embrace free college and national health insurance. Yet this ignores the fact that Bernie Sanders did so well in the primaries mainly because Clinton was the same horrible candidate she’s always been.

This wing of the party thinks President Barack Obama was too centrist. Hmm: Is that why the party lost 14 governorships plus nine Senate and 60-plus House seats on his watch?

Shutdown threat growing over immigration fight
Democrats believe they have leverage to demand an immigration deal going into the end-of-year negotiations because GOP leadership will likely need their votes to keep the government open.

They are signaling, despite the decision from the president, that they will keep DACA in the December talks until Republicans show they can pass a spending bill on their own.
“Unless Republicans can keep the government open without Democratic votes, this is not their decision to make. I have yet to see any evidence that they will be able to do that,” said Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus.

How the Mighty Have Fallen

They were the most feared power couple since Antony and Cleopatra. They ran roughshod over the democrat party and made a mockery of the rule of law. Bill Clinton was the most accomplished liar of his time and his partner spent her time committing fraud and outright theft, and made sure none of her husband’s sexual assault victims dared to breathe a word of what he did to them. From the day he left office in January of 2001 it was assumed Hillary would be given the reins of power after George W. Bush.

Then the dupes in the enslaved press fell madly, blindly, passionately in love with a Chicago street hustler who attained absolutely everything he had on the basis of his race.
Frustrated because as a community organizer he knew how to stack caucuses in the early primaries, he eventually pushed her out. She’d previously been given a seat in the Senate from New York, where they slithered off to after leaving the White House (and stealing a lot of historic artifacts the Secret Service had to retrieve) because democrats outnumber republicans 3 to 1 there and she was a shoo-in after shoving out Nita Lowey, who was ordered to step aside to give Hillary the gig.

Apparently Obama made a deal to appoint her Secretary of State to get her out of town and allow her to pick up hundreds of millions from countries who expected payback after she assumed the throne that was rightfully hers. The whole world knew the Clintons operated a cash machine. Want anything? It’ll cost you. Like Charlie Trie once said: There was a turnstile at the front of the white House. You had to pay to get inside.

FAST FORWARD TO 2017: The mask is off. The democrat party no longer fears her. She has no power, wields no influence. The Clinton money laundering machine has ground to a halt because they have nothing to offer but bitterness and excuses about how it’s everybody else’s fault she was denied her destiny.

DNC chair almost replaced Hillary Clinton with Joe Biden as candidate after her collapse at 9/11 memorial
HILLARY WOULD HAVE EATEN BRAZILE’S LIVER IF SHE’D TRIED TO DO THAT… LET’S BE REAL

Brazile, in her tell-all memoir of the contentious 2016 presidential race, reveals she pondered yanking Clinton off the ballot after she collapsed while leaving a Ground Zero memorial service.

By then, the Clinton campaign was permeated by the “odor of failure” and Brazile thought the sitting vice president might energize the troops, according to The Washington Post.

“Again and again I thought about Joe Biden,” Brazile writes in the book. “(But) no matter my doubts and my fears about the election and Hillary as a candidate, I could not make good on my threat to replace her.”

Donna Brazile Unleashed! Clinton Campaign Treated Me Like “Slave” – Blasts Egomaniacs Obama & Wasserman Schultz

As one of her party’s most prominent black strategists, Brazile also recounts fiery disagreements with Clinton’s staffers — including a conference call in which she told three senior campaign officials, Charlie Baker, Marlon Marshall and Dennis Cheng, that she was being treated like a slave.

“I’m not Patsey the slave,” Brazile recalls telling them, a reference to the character played by Lupita Nyong’o in the film, “12 Years a Slave.” “Y’all keep whipping me and whipping me and you never give me any money or any way to do my damn job. I am not going to be your whipping girl!”

Many supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) interpreted the news as confirmation that the party had treated him unfairly.

THIS MESSAGE IS AIMED AT THE 12 DEMOCRATS WHO CAN ACTUALLY READ.

Both former President Bushes had choice words for current President Donald Trump in a new book scheduled to be published later this month, with the elder Bush reportedly calling the billionaire commander-in-chief a “blowhard” and flatly stating he does not “like” him.

Furthermore, both ex-presidents admitted they did not vote for Trump. The elder Bush pulled the lever for Democrat Hillary Clinton while the younger told Updegrove he voted for “none of the above.”

Rats Abandoning H.M.S. Hillary

Donna Brazile, Lizzie Warren, and Donald Trump all agree on something. Never thought you’d see that, did you? They all agree…the fix was in for the democrat primary last year. Everybody knew it, they just didn’t want to say so. Well, now Donna “we’re not going to let the white boys win” Brazile is hawking a book aptly named HACKS.


Explosive Brazile Confession: Trump and Bernie Were Right, DNC Rigged Nomination For Hillary From the Start
In her forthcoming book, former DNC chair Donna Brazile absolutely unloads on her party, blasting Barack Obama for decimating the DNC’s finances, savaging the leadership of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and confirming that yes, Hillary Clinton’s campaign had the party in its pocket long before she was its nominee.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said Thursday that it’s “shocking” that Hillary Clinton rigged the Democratic National Committee to secure her own presidential nomination.

[CtH: Further evidence of how thoroughly corrupt the Left Stream Media is.  THEY should’ve been screaming about this throughout 2012.]

In an interview with Democratic Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, Blitzer contended that it’s a “shocking revelation” that Clinton essentially bought off the DNC in exchange for control of the party’s finances and strategy.

Rep. Carson seemed unbothered by the story, stating that he thinks Brazile is “brilliant” and looks forward to reading her book.

The reason the networks wanted to keep Brazile’s findings secret was simple: They didn’t want to ruin their narrative that Clinton was a pure angel who was a victim of Donald Trump and Russian collusion. But in recent weeks, it had come out that Clinton had the DNC in her pocket and they both were funneling money to Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele so they could work with Russian agents to get dirt on Donald Trump.

The Left Does Voters No Favors

Left-wing identity politics leaves voters totally ignorant.

My feeling is that

(a) they knee jerk to their “racist, sexist, homophobe” ad hominem attacks, because they can’t actually defend any of their policies with facts or logic, and

(b) voters who learn a thing or two quickly become skeptical of the Left’s whole schtick.

Take, for example, the young man who asked Dearest for GOP candidate yard signs for the upcoming local election today. He described himself as a “formerly lifelong Democrat.”

One of the advantages of being retired is that you can take a nap any time you want to. I enjoyed my weekly breakfast with my uncles this morning and felt like lying down for a bit when I got home. Woke up a little while ago and saw on Facebook a dear friend who lives in Florida plans to ride out the storm. Still praying.

It’s late, but maybe the folks who visit here early can catch this in the morning. I want you to know how much I appreciate all of you.  [CtH: Back atcha, Pete!]

Tim Kaine: ‘I Don’t Know Enough About Antifa’


THIS CLOWN COULD HAVE BEEN OUR VICE PRESIDENT. LET THAT SINK IN.

Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine says he does not know much about members of so-called “anti-fascist” groups but says it is unfair to paint them with a broad brush.
Kaine’s son, Linwood, was arrested back in March at a pro-Trump rally at Minnesota’s state capitol on misdemeanor charges in connection with lighting smoke bombs.

[CtH: Democrats never let a little thing like ignorance stand in the way of their having firm opinions about stuff.]

Hurricanes Irma, Harvey are nature’s ‘wrath’ for Trump victory, Jennifer Lawrence claims

THE CLIMATE CHANGE NITWITS ARE BESIDE THEMSELVES

“You know, it’s this new language that’s forming. I don’t even recognize it. It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting.”

Hillary Accuses Matt Lauer of ‘Pointless Ambush’ in NBC Forum

Recalling the event in her self-serving account of the campaign, Clinton ranted: “Lauer had turned what should have been a serious discussion into a pointless ambush.” Why was she so upset with the morning show host who usually provided her a friendly forum? Apparently he asked too many questions about her e-mail scandal.

[CtH: Oh, the inhumanity!]

SHE JUST CAN’T LET IT GO.

Kid Rock Gives EPIC ‘Stump Speech’ at Grand Rapids

Despite YouTube reportedly removing various copies of Kid Rock’s epic ‘stump speech,’ during his concert in Grand Rapids, TGP has obtained a copy of it. The rockstar goes on a fiery tirade against his critics, the KKK and deadbeat dads.

Rock said the issue of single parenthood was near to his heart, but that America should not reward women who can’t take care of themselves, but keep having “kid after f*cking kid.”

“Of course we should help them out, I don’t want to sound like a jerk,” he added. “But let’s help them out with childcare, job creating, and put their goddamn asses to work!”

I HAD A YOUTUBE COPY, BUT THEY’VE ALL BEEN REMOVED. THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE IT. THERE IS A COPY EMBEDDED AT LINK. SO SICK OF THIS CRAP.

Sanders: I Understand Clinton’s Upset for Losing to the ‘Most Unpopular Candidate in the History of this Country’

THIS SORRY OLD BASTARD MAY BE HAPPIER THAN ALL OF US THAT SHE LOST.

[CtH: I think he’s a tad confused about how “Most Unpopular” is determined.  To my way of thinking, the woman who LOST should get that trophy. ]

Limbaugh: If Ryan and McConnell would Work with Trump “for Just 3 Months” to Pass His Agenda, “Dems wouldn’t have a Prayer for 25 Years”

But they have not listened to Trump. They have not enacted his agenda. They have fought him every step of the way. It’s totally insane. They don’t want Trump to get credit for anything. They would rather see the entire Trump agenda fail. But they may be about to find out Trump can get things done without them.

DoJ makes “shocking” flip in SCOTUS religious liberty case

JUST THINK…A PRESIDENT WHO DOESN’T DESPISE CHRISTIANS

In a major upcoming Supreme Court case that weighs equal rights with religious liberty, the Trump administration on Thursday sided with a Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.

The Department of Justice on Thursday filed a brief on behalf of baker Jack Phillips, who was found to have violated the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act by refusing to created a cake to celebrate the marriage of Charlie Craig and David Mullins in 2012.

Bannon on 60 Minutes: Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell ‘Trying to Nullify 2016 Election’

Former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon believes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) are trying to “nullify” the 2016 election because they do not believe in the economic nationalist agenda that got President Donald Trump elected.

When Is A Scandal Not A Scandal? When There’s A Democrat Involved

Corruption: A sitting U.S. Senator is currently on trial for bribery, and if he’s found guilty it could have major political ramifications. Haven’t heard about this case? That’s because the Senator in question is a Democrat.

A CNN story this week about the opening of the trial against New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez noted that “Democrats are eager to avoid the subject of Menendez’s bribery trial.”

The New York Times wrote an entire piece without identifying Senator Menendez as a Democrat from New Jersey, only later admitting that Menendez is a Democrat in updated version of the story two days later.  AP and NBC both tweeted out a story that Bob Menendez is a Republican.

Trump’s Justice Department Lets Lois Lerner Off The Hook

IT’S NOT WHETHER OR NOT SOMEONE’S GUILTY, BUT CAN YOU PROVE IT?
HOW I LOATHE THIS ARROGANT BITCH

The Justice Department says it will not prosecute former IRS executive Lois Lerner for targeting conservative groups during the 2010 and 2012 elections.

“After this process, the Department determined that reopening the investigation would not be appropriate based on the available evidence,” Boyd wrote Texas Rep. Kevin Brady, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Illinois Rep. Peter Roskam, the chairman of the subcommittee on tax policy.

Violent Rhetoric

Dems can’t follow their own advice to tone down the rhetoric in the name of not encouraging extremists to get violent.

After the Senate’s health care bill came out, Bernie Sanders tweeted,

2017_06 23 Sanders tweet

In other “Democrats go lower” news …

  • Hillary Clinton tweeted, “Forget death panels. If Republicans pass this bill, they’re the death party.”
  • Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy tweeted, “No tweaks by amendment can fix this monstrosity. If you vote for this evil, intellectually bankrupt bill, it will ruin millions of lives.”
  • A Rolling Stone writer really jumped the shark with this tweeted absurdity: “Trump and the Republicans want to pass a bill that would kill far more Americans than ISIS and al Qaeda could ever dream about.”

Never mind that approximately 6.5 million uninsured Americans were forced to pay $3 billion in penalties to the IRS because they couldn’t afford Obamacare plans.

And never mind that 18 of the 23 Obamacare co-ops have collapsed.

And also never mind that the only (born) Americans I’ve heard of who actually died because of a Democrat-run health care program were veterans who couldn’t get appointments at the VA.
