Democratic Whip, Senator Dick Durbin reported that President Trump called some countries “s**tholes” during an immigration meeting with members of Congress.
Other senators who were at the immigration meeting with Durbin and Trump have said they don’t recall Trump saying “s***hole.”
Sen. Chuck Schumer took their statements as a direct assault on Durbin’s integrity.
Well, dang, Chuck. It’s not like Durbin doesn’t have a history of lying and talking trash about Republicans. Let’s consider for example his recent claim that President Trump’s remarks “were hate filled, vile and racist.”
::coughcough:: So, yeah, not at all like that time in 2005, when Durbin got up on the Senate floor and said U.S. troops were like Nazis, Soviets, and Khmer Rouge.
He was forced to get up on the Senate floor again, to apologize, but his apology wasn’t what you’d call “sincere.” His exact words:
“Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them, I extend my heartfelt apologies.”
[That’s kinda like saying, “I’m sorry you’re stupid.”]
In 2013, Durbin was caught straight up lying, alleging that one GOP congressional leader told President Obama, “I can’t even stand to look at you.”
That never happened. He lied.
As for Durbin’s high dudgeon over President Trump calling “chain migration” by the term “chain migration”, puh-leeze. The term “chain migration” has been part of the vernacular surrounding the immigration debate for decades. Suddenly, Durbin decides it’s a racist dog whistle?
“African-Americans believe they migrated to America in chains and when you talk about chain migration, it hurts them personally.”
What a hypocrite. In 2010, Durbin supported chain migration, using that exact term, in his Senate speech about the Dream Act.
But even if Trump said what Durbin said he said, it’s ridiculous for Durbin et al. to be hitting their fainting couches over it. Two years ago, President Obama called Libya a “s***show.”
No liberal heads exploded.
A mouth breathing piece of trash from Uzbekistan, one of those that Barack welcomed into the country by the tens of thousands, drove a Menard’s rental truck onto a sidewalk near the World Trade Center and killed 8 people. As he committed this bloody act, he screamed ‘Allahu Akhbar!’ Liberals are denying it had anything to to with the blood cult of Islam. They also bent over backwards to insist it was a lone wolf. It seems it always is.
8 killed as truck plows into pedestrians in downtown NYC terror attack
Saipov’s bloody, 17-block trail of terror began at 3:05 p.m., when he turned onto the bike path at West Houston Street in a Home Depot flatbed pickup truck he’d rented in Passaic, NJ, police sources said. The maniac, who was carrying a Florida ID, rammed his car into nearly two dozen innocent cyclists and pedestrians as he sped south on the typically serene path along the Hudson River.
Truck Driver Terrorist Identified As 29-Year-Old Sayfullo Saipov
Several officials have identified the New York City truck attacker who killed eight people and injured others as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov from Tampa, Fla.
President Donald Trump has already decried the attack as one conducted by a “very sick and deranged person.” He did not mention that the attack was being investigated by federal authorities as an act of terror, or that the attacker screamed “Allahu Akbar.”
MSNBC’s “Terrorism Analyst” on NYC Attack: “Not Islam Whatsoever”
It would be laughable if it weren’t so infuriating . . . Every time there is an Islamic terror attack, someone in the liberal media will claim that it is not really Islamic.
And so Chris Matthews’ MSNBC show rolled out Malcolm Nance, it’s “terrorism analyst,” this evening to comment on the murderous attack in NYC today. And sure enough: ”
What you’re seeing is not Islam, whatsoever . . . None of that is Islamic. It’s anti-Islamic.”
CNN Reporter REFUSES TO SHARE DESCRIPTION of NYC Islamist Killer During Live Report
CNN Crime and Justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz went on air to report on the Islamist truck attack in New York City today near the World Trade Center. Shimon refused to share the description of the bearded Muslim from Uzbekistan during the live broadcast
Prokupecz: “Police know who he is. They have a description of him. I’m not going to share that at the moment.”
Because sharing his description might be Islamophobic… After the Uzbek national just mowed over and killed eight people on a bike path.
NY Sen. Schumer Created Diversity Visas Which Invited Alleged Killer to NY
The diversity visa program was created in 1990 by then-Rep. Schumer in response to Irish lobbies in his New York district. Twenty-seven years later, it annually awards 50,000 visas by annual lottery to entrants from around the world, ensuring a cascade of subsequent chain-migrants. An August poll shows that only one-in-six Americans strongly favors the program, despite much political and media pressure to welcome migrants.
SOMETHING TO PONDER: During his bloody reign of terror Barack Obama welcomed in tens of thousands of these stinking maggots. The Bloody Bitch of Benghazi has always been for open borders. She would have welcomed in millions more of these scum with their multiple wives and litters of children to overwhelm the welfare system. Every day brings a new reason to thank Almighty God we were spared.
Fighting the urge to take a nap. Had to wake up to have breakfast with my uncles. It may seem a bother, but one day it will no longer be possible. Put in that perspective, it’s really no bother at all.
Angry GOP donors close their wallets
‘I’m sick and tired of nothing happening,’ one contributor says of the party’s legislative failures
These elitists may not pay us commoners much mind, but money talks, as they say.
“Anybody who was there knew that I was not happy. And I don’t think anybody was happy. How could you be?” said Wachtell, who has previously given over $2,000 to McConnell but recently stopped donating to Senate GOP causes. “You’re never going to get a more sympathetic Republican than I am. But I’m sick and tired of nothing happening.”
Cuomo’s on-air meltdown defending CNN against fake news charge does not disappoint
Betraying any pretense of impartiality he may have had, Cuomo, a news anchor, then declared that the federal government’s relief efforts in Puerto Rico were inadequate — this coming from a network that exists almost entirely for the purpose of destroying this president.
Schumer Asks Trump to ‘Break from the NRA…And Work With Us’
Schumer described the National Rifle Association, a group that supports Americans’ constitutional right to keep and bear arms, as a swamp:
“Look, this is, I mean, this is the swamp. A small, powerful lobby that represents a vast minority, a very small minority of Americans, seems to have a stranglehold on the Republican Party. And, that shouldn’t be.
House passes budget, paving way for tax reform
In a 219-206 vote, lawmakers approved a budget resolution for 2018 that sets up a process for shielding the GOP tax bill from a filibuster in the Senate.
A total of 18 Republicans voted against the resolution, along with all the Democrats who were present.
GOP lawmakers hailed the vote as meaningful because of the tax measure.
Street Artist Targets Jimmy Kimmel
“Sabo” created posters of Kimmel looking like a young Johnny Depp from the 1990 movie ‘Cry-Baby.’
Holy Hillary!I’m reminded of the story about a holy missionary who died and was received in Heaven by a crowd of angels and saints. Soon, a trumpet sounded, and everyone but his guardian angel left to join a much larger crowd greeting a scowling unpleasant-looking man. The bewildered priest turned to the angel, who said, “Don’t be surprised. He’s no saint, but he saved far more souls than you. He was a notoriously reckless driver, and wherever he drove, people prayed.” So it was with Hillary.
Democrats ‘Throw Tantrum,’ Skip VA Event Because of a Group They Don’t Like
Then, on Tuesday, Democrats on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee skipped out on what The Military Times described as a “supposedly friendly roundtable discussion” over how to reform the Veterans Affairs agency.
Why? Because Concerned Veterans for America was there – and the group has ties to Republicans.
KISS rocks the crowd, stops concert for a rousing Pledge of Allegiance
In a day when overpaid millionaire NFL players have made it “cool” to disrespect our country and flag, it’s good to see some entertainers still willing to publicly give due reverence to the symbols that represent not only our beloved nation, but the men and women who sacrifice to keep America free.
Every day I thank Almighty God that we have Donald Trump as our president and not that greedy, lying, corrupt hag with a heart as black as night. Every day the attacks on our president begin anew. It would break a lesser man, but the establishment has never had to deal with anybody like Trump. They beat on him mercilessly over the relief efforts in Puerto Rico and the Gulf. He doesn’t do things to be liked… he does them because it’s the right thing to do.
President Trump’s inaugural committee will give $3 million to hurricane relief
According to the Times, the private committee raised $107 million for the inauguration. It’s unclear how much money the committee still has.
“The surplus of these privately donated funds will be put to great substantive use for relief victims throughout the heartbreaking regions of America impacted by the recent catastrophic disaster,” committee chairman Thomas Barrack Jr. told the Times
More Evidence Facebook Is Targeting Conservative News Outlets
THEY HAVE AN ARMY OF BEDWETTING THUMB SUCKERS JUST LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO BE OFFENDED BY. APPARENTLY I FOUND OUT UNINTENTIONALLY.
Conservatives shunned traditional media for online news outlets in 2016.
A Columbia Journalism Review study in March found that The Drudge Report, Breitbart, FOX News, The Hill and The Gateway Pundit were the most prominent conservative news outlets during the 2016 election.
Hillary Clinton’s Lawyer Helped Facebook Avoid Political Ad Disclosures
GEE, THERE’S A SURPRISE
Elias and the team argued that because the ads were so small that such a disclosure would be impractical, CNN reports. The Federal Election Commission, which consists of three Democrats and three Republicans, split 3-3 on their vote of allowing Facebook to forego the disclaimers.
However, the split vote allowed savvy lawyers to work around the request since the FEC did not issue an opinion. Facebook went ahead and allowed political advertisements on its site without disclosures following the commission’s gridlock.

If you need to set a thief to catch a thief, you need a star — a grand, outsized, fearless star whom Trump can neither intimidate nor outshine — to catch a star. We’re through the looking glass here. America is discarding old approaches in politics. Democrats will have to do the same to match the mood to the moment.

It’s time for Mitch McConnell to go
Make no mistake, Tuesday’s Republican Senate primary in Alabama centered on McConnell’s failures. Stephen Bannon, on television before Roy Moore’s victory, declared McConnell guilty of “economic hate crimes” against the middle class. There is delightful timing in Moore winning his primary battle against the McConnell-funded Sen. Luther Strange on the very day that McConnell surrendered in the health-care fight.
Elementary School Librarian Rejects ‘Racist Propaganda’ Dr. Seuss Books From Melania Trump
“I work in a district that has plenty of resources, which contributes directly to ‘excellence,'” Soeiro wrote. “Cambridge, Massachusetts, is an amazing city with robust social programming, a responsive city government, free all-day kindergarten, and well-paid teachers (relatively speaking — many of us can’t afford to live in the city in which we teach). Soeiro added that the first lady should be donating books to school libraries in cities like Detroit, Philadelphia, and Chicago, because their libraries are being “shuttered” by policies put in place by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.
THIS IS THE ILL-MANNERED GARGOYLE:
Kamala Harris gets potentially huge boost due to change in Democrats’ presidential primary schedule
THIS DISGUSTING PIG PRETENDS TO BE BLACK WHEN SHE’S EAST INDIAN.
Presidential contenders will now need to invest time and money into vying for California’s hundreds of delegates. Running campaigns in California is a costly proposition because the vast state encompasses several major media markets, which requires multiple ad buys.
The move could also buoy Ms Harris, a first-term Democrat whose potential presidential aspirations have fueled rumors since shortly after she took office. Having served two terms as the state’s attorney general, Ms Harris would have the advantage of name recognition and an existing donor network.
In retrospect, I managed to survive more than the first 60 years of my life without Facebook. To date, I’ve sent one text in my entire life. I don’t tweet, snapchat, or instagram, and I’ve yet to feel the need to take a picture of myself. My phone flips and I only carry it while I’m working. I’ve been spending a lot of time watching videos of old songs I remembered from my wasted youth on YouTube and commenting on sports blogs. I even learned how to fillet a catfish.
Trump plan promises huge tax cuts, but big questions remain
Trump declared repeatedly the plan would provide badly needed tax relief for the middle class. But there are too many gaps in the proposal to know how it actually would affect individual taxpayers and families, how it would be paid for and how much it might add to the soaring $20 trillion national debt.
WHY IS IT WHEN A REPUBLICAN PROPOSES CUTTING TAXES THE LEFT SCREAMS: “HOW ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR IT??” YET, WHEN THEY SHOVE TAX INCREASES DOWN THE MIDDLE CLASS’S THROATS, THEY NEVER ASK HOW THE PEOPLE WILL PAY FOR IT?
[CtH: They also never factor in how much increased business and more jobs stimulated by the cuts will increase tax income.]
Trump tax plan eliminates big perk for high-tax states
President Trump will release a sweeping plan Wednesday to cut taxes and simplify the tax code that will eliminate the deduction for state and local taxes — a move that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has warned would be a “death blow” for New York.
[CtH: Cuomo and his Democrat cronies have been trying to kill New York for decades. And since when do Democrats care about rich people? Aren’t the rich not supposed to get deductions in their world, cuz it’s not FAIR … or something?]
Repealing it would increase federal revenue by $1.3 trillion over the decade, according to the Tax Policy Center. But it would also slam high-income New Yorkers. Manhattan leads the way nationally in taking the deduction, with residents writing off an average of $24,898 on their federal returns. Deductions would remain for mortgage interest and charitable contributions. Also, the standard deduction would nearly double to $12,000 for individuals and $24,000 for married couples.

While some Democrats are already working with the president, a coalition of roughly 45 Democrats in the Senate, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, could give the administration trouble going forward. This group has promised to reject any bill that cuts taxes on the wealthy.
[CtH: So they’re against increasing taxes on wealthy New Yorkers AND decreasing taxes on wealthy Americans? Oooookay.]
Michelle Obama: Women Who Didn’t Vote for Hillary Clinton ‘Voted Against Their Own Voice’
She continued, “It doesn’t say as much about Hillary and everybody is trying to wonder, ‘Well what does it mean for Hillary?’ Well no, what does it mean for us, as women, that we look at those two candidates and many of us said, ‘That guy? He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ Well, to me that just says you don’t like your voice. You like the thing we’re told to like—the voice we are told we are supposed to like. You bought into that.”

Chuck Todd: Roy Moore ‘Doesn’t Appear to Believe in the Constitution as It’s Written’
For any non-revisionist individual who’s read the Constitution or commentaries on it, they would know that Todd’s slam against Moore is pure and utter fake news. Why? It’s because the Constitution ensures that our God-given rights aren’t hinged upon by the government.

Anyone else remember the days when the left told us dissent was the highest form of patriotism?
Donald Trump is a hard man to get a feeling for. A successful businessman who got into politics and went through the primaries like a cyclone in a wheat field. Stunning the world, he defeated someone who had been all but preordained as the next president and turned Capitol Hill on its ear. He has been universally opposed by the establishment of both parties. In spite of the media’s best efforts to destroy the only man with the nerve to stand up to them, he still remains popular with those who voted for him.
He ran on repealing Obamacare and building the border wall. His own party betrayed him on health care and it looks like he gave a big FU to his own party and has worked a deal with the Democrats just to get something done. The modern definition of “bipartisanship” is, was, and always will be the republicans abandoning everything they believe in and give the liberals everything they want. There are conflicting reports about a deal he struck with the left and it is unclear exactly what his motives are.
Pelosi And Schumer: Trump Agreed To ‘Enshrine DACA Protections Into Law’ Without Wall
“We had a very productive meeting at the White House with the President. The discussion focused on DACA. We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders disputed the Democratic leaders’ claims saying Trump did not agree to excluding the wall from any DACA fix.
Report: Trump Caves on DACA, Wants ‘Quick’ Amnesty for 800K Illegal Aliens
In a meeting with establishment politicians from the Problem Solvers Caucus and the Blue Dog Coalition, President Trump signaled a full-fledged cave on the issue of giving amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens currently protected by an Obama-created executive immigration program.
I would reserve thought on this as this is Democratic statement and nothing is written out. And there was no prior indication that the wall would ever be a part of this deal. Paul Ryan said there would be funding for the wall apart from this. So we’ll have to see how it all shakes out formally.
Outrageous Selling-Out of the Base: Immigration Patriots Blast Trump Staffer Marc Short for Trading DACA Amnesty for Tax Cuts
As Breitbart News reported, Trump’s congressional relations aide Marc Short told reporters that he is not asking Democrats to exchange amnesty for the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens covered by the Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for the legal immigration-cutting RAISE Act, E-Verify, or even border wall funding.
Instead, Short – who previously worked in the Republican establishment and headed an organization bankrolled by the pro-mass immigration billionaire Koch brothers – tied the massive amnesty deal to tax cuts

Report: Dem pollsters worried that attacks on Trump not sticking
Many of the ideas party leaders have latched onto in an attempt to appeal to their lost voters — free college tuition, raising the minimum wage to $15, even Medicare for all — test poorly among voters outside the base. The people in these polls and focus groups tend to see those proposals as empty promises, at best.
Victor Davis Hansen has a great post at National Review, Two Resistances. The basic thesis is that the Media-Dem-NeverTrump Resistance gets all the attention, but the real resistance is an uprising against elites, so much so that Trump is an acceptable antidote
Tough Love: Democratic Operatives Tear Apart the Party’s Current Strategy for 2018
The president’s response to the Charlottesville violence, the rolling back of the Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals, Russian collusion hysteria, the slow pace of enacting his agenda—all of these things have Democrats grinning, expect that they shouldn’t. The party’s own operatives and data crunchers have run through the numbers based on focus groups, and Democrats are still heading for the electoral ditch.
In all, while Trump’s approval ratings might be in the low 40s by the time the 2018 midterms hit, it’s appallingly naïve for the Left to think a blue wave is coming based on that factor alone.
New RNC Video Highlights Global Failures of Single-Payer Health Care Systems
Donald Trump is a businessman, not a politician. That fact, as much as perhaps any other, is why he bested 16 other primary foes and stunned the nation by besting the heir apparent, a sociopathic liar who never met a dollar she didn’t covet. Make no mistake, he is a far, far better alternative to the evil Cankles was prepared to wreak. Still and all, Trump’s forte is making deals. The republicans gave him nothing. He did away with a lot of onerous regulations and the climate change scheme through executive order, but was so eager to appear presidential he’d have signed any legislation they sent him.
They gave him nothing. No border wall funding, no tax cuts, not even the so-called ‘skinny repeal’ of Obamacare. Whether out of spite or cowardice, they have fought him on almost anything. So, Trump decided if they won’t deal with him, the democrats will. And they did. Democrats had absolutely no power to stop anything, and Trump handed them the power to attach amendment to any legislation while denying anything to republicans. DACA will be the first amendment rider with making Obamacare permanent close behind. The dems now have the best of both worlds… they get to have their own way and trash Trump like they always do. Witness the savagery displayed after Sessions announced the ending of the DREAM act, only to have Trump gave Congress 6 months to fondle each other after which he will “revisit” it.

Unforgivable: Donald Trump just made Chuck Schumer POTUS
The president’s total capitulation occurred in a Wednesday meeting with congressional leaders from both parties. Earlier, Minority Leaders Pelosi and Schumer proposed a plan to tie Hurricane Harvey relief to a short-term debt ceiling increase until mid-December. President Trump agreed to support the Democratic plan. To make matters even worse, the president said Wednesday that his administration will always “automatically” agree on increasing the debt ceiling.
YOU CAN KISS THE 15% CORPORATE TAX RATE GOODBYE. DEMOCRATS WANT NO PART OF IT AND THE REPUBLICANS CAN NO LONGER DO ANYTHING.
GOP leaders ‘shocked’ following Trump deal with Democrats
Several Republicans briefed on the meeting said that Trump, who has been absent a major legislative achievement for his first seven months in office, was hungry for a deal.
“The President was in deal-cutting mode,” a Republican familiar with the meeting told CNN. “He was sick of this fight.”
TRUMP Goes Around Do-Nothing Republican Leaders and Strikes Debt Limit Deal with Pelosi-Schumer
During a meeting with congressional leaders at the White House, Trump surprised his GOP colleagues when he granted Democrats’ request that Republicans pass a Hurricane Harvey relief package with a three-month debt increase. Top White House officials and GOP leaders had spent the past few days urging Republicans to raise the debt ceiling through the 2018 midterm election.
How Trump Caved To Dems Over Debt Ceiling, Govt. Funding
“We had a very good meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. We agreed to a three-month extension on debt ceiling, which they consider to be sacred — very important — always we’ll agree on debt ceiling automatically because of the importance of it,” Trump told reporters Wednesday aboard Air Force One.
Trump’s Deal with Democrats Is a Warning to Republicans — Establishment and Conservative Alike
The deal is a warning to Republicans — primarily to the party establishment, which has fought Trump at every turn, but also to conservative Republicans, who have long worried about Trump shifting leftwards.
By working with Democrats, Trump can bypass the Republican leadership, GOP moderates, and personal foes like Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). However, it also means that he can cobble deals together between liberal Republicans and the Democrat minority, leaving conservatives out in the cold.

Trump did not provide numbers on what the policy would cost overall, or whether it would apply to all taxpayers or just those who are below a certain income bracket.

Part of the appeal of the tax credit is that it benefits regular working families, according to meeting attendees who spoke to Politico.

After the floor session, Matt House took a picture of Schumer standing with Warren. Later, Warren was mobbed by raucous supporters outside the Capitol, despite the late hour.

Now, look at the video below. It’s filled with images of Democrats, Schumer’s own colleagues. They are clearly celebrating. They look very happy, unlike the American people who are suffering.

Planned Parenthood Issues Guidelines On How to Teach Toddlers About Transgenderism and Masturbation
New guidelines have been issued on the Planned Parenthood website containing detailed methods for talking to preschoolers about gender roles, sexuality, masturbation, transgenderism, and even ways of determining whether your child is trans or not.
[CtH: My mother had a guideline for this stuff too. “Ask me again when you’re older.”]
The federally funded corporation, Planned Parenthood, is now offering advice to parents on how to approach sexual and gender identity topics with toddlers and preschoolers. When they’re not killing unborn babies with tax dollars, they have to at least make sure your kids grow up to be ill-adjusted, gender confused, and hyper-sexual.

Chelsea Clinton tells ‘white parents’ to teach their kids not to be racists – that’s pretty racist
Chelsea Clinton loves to get on her soapbox and preach to the commoners. She continued that trend on Friday when she decided to tell “white parents” how to raise their children.
Clinton is no stranger to offering her “wisdom” on social media. Not only to her followers, but to world leaders and members of the media. In the past year she has used her Twitter account to scold the president of the Philippines, chastise Megyn Kelly for interviewing Alex Jones, attack Steven Bannon for fat shaming, and frequently to go after President Donald Trump.
But her latest foray into telling parents how to raise their children drew the ire of many.
