And I Alone Survived

Throwing caution to the wind, I put concern for my personal safety aside and accompanied my beloved child bride into the maelstrom known as the shopping mall during the holiday season. Our plan had some success, given our early arrival in an effort to complete the mission and retreat before the assault reached a fever pitch. Winding our way through the JC Penney store, we emerged onto the main battlefield and took evasive action, ducking into a Zales Jewelers. Always wanting to have my betrothed awash in finery, she picked out a nice sterling silver and topaz ring. It had to be sized, so she won’t get it until the first week of January. She pointed out our anniversary is in February so she rationalized it could commemorate our long ago nuptials. She has a mind like a steel trap.
After a trek into Bed Bath and Beyond for some smelly concoctions, we were off to the grown man’s Chuck E Cheese, Victoria’s Secret. One would have thought purchasing gift cards would be a rather simple process. As we neared the counter, much to my chagrin, there were two long lines at the checkout. It was reminiscent of a WalMart the day the welfare class get their food stamps. I gave her my bank card to pay with and found a bench outside the store. The longer I stood there, watching women peruse stacks of panties and demi bras, the dirtier I felt.
Our final mission was a lunch at the food court. We dined on mango chicken with fried rice, bang bang shrimp, and spring rolls. Billy club and mace at the ready, we elbowed our way through the frenzied throng back through the Penney store and emerged, bruised but unbroken, in the parking lot to beat a strategic retreat to the sanctity of our home territory. I don’t think I want to go through that hell again.

GOP senators hold back support for tax bill over child tax credit
THE SENATE HAS TO PASS A TAX CUT BILL BEFORE RECESS AND THEY KNOW IT… SO DO THE DEMOCRATS.
TRUE TO THE OLD CANARD ABOUT HERDING CATS, ALL THE USUAL SUSPECTS ARE PLAYING HARD TO GET WITH THEIR VOTE FOR THIS BILL. MURKOWSKI, FLAKE, McCAIN, COLLINS, AND RUBIO HAVE ALL SET CONDITIONS FOR THEIR APPROVAL. TO HELL WITH THE PEOPLE, WE WANT WHAT WE WANT.
“Senator Rubio has consistently communicated to the Senate tax negotiators that his vote on final passage would depend on whether the refundability of the child tax credit was increased in a meaningful way,” said Rubio spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas.
Conn Carroll, a spokesman for Utah GOP Sen. Mike Lee, also said Lee is “undecided” on the bill in its current form.
Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, the only Republican to vote against the original version of the tax bill passed by the Senate, also told Fox News he is undecided on whether he will vote for the final version of the bill

Illness sidelines McCain, Cochran as tax vote nears
HERE WE HAVE THE COUNTRY’S LONGEST LIVING RINO AND THAT CADAVER WITH A PULSE WHO ARE DESPERATELY NEEDED TO PASS THE TAX CUTS. MCCAIN WILL SURELY ENJOY SOMEBODY BEGGING HIM TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE PEOPLE HE CLAIMS TO REPRESENT FOR ONCE, AND COCHRAN WILL HAVE TO BE STRAPPED TO A FURNITURE DOLLY AND WHEELED IN. REMEMBER, THIS WAS THE CORPSE THAT McCONNELL’S HIT SQUAD PAID VOTERS IN MISSISSIPPI TO VOTE FOR TO KEEP THE SEAT AWAY FROM A CONSERVATIVE.
I RECALL WHEN THE DEMOCRATS NEEDED A VOTE FROM KKK BYRD, THEY WHEELED HIM ONTO THE FLOOR OF THE SENATE TO VOTE… ONE SNOT BUBBLE FOR YEA, TWO BUBBLES FOR NAY.
Both men missed all Senate votes this week, but their presence will be crucial early next week as the GOP tries to pass the tax bill in the Senate with a razor-thin Republican majority of 52-48 — and all Democrats opposed to the legislation. Adding to the uncertainty on Thursday was Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who said he would vote against the bill if negotiators failed to expand the child tax credit.

When Reporter Asked What Trump Is Doing To Combat Gun Violence Sanders Flips The Script

She responded, “I don’t think there is any one thing that you could do that could have prevented both of those horrible, horrible tragedies.” The press secretary then flipped the script on the reporter, asking her to name “a single thing” that would have prevented the tragedies.

“I’m Not Taking Another Question From You” 

“You’re Vying To Replace Jerry Springer”: CNN’s Jim Acosta Roasted For Spreading #FakeNews About Gun Control
CNN‘s Jim Acosta is at it again. The White House correspondent spread fake news about gun control to his nearly 500,000 Twitter followers on Thursday.
Acosta was widely mocked for his tweet, as per usual.
“This is a lie. If a politician said this, Jim Acosta would interrupt the press conference to live-fact-check him with readily available FBI statistics,” pointed out National Review’s Charles C.W. Cooke.

Mike Huckabee Tells Mika Brzezinski To ‘Go Pound Sand’ After She Attacks His Daughter
Mike Huckabee told Mika Brzezinski to “go pound sand” after the “Morning Joe” co-host attacked his daughter, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Wednesday.

“My daughter stands strong and tough and walks into that lion’s den of a press room every day and represents women and represents the president and represents strength in an incredible way.”
On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe,” Brzezinski expressed disbelief that Sanders could stand by President Donald Trump’s tweet that suggested Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand would “do anything” for political donations. Some thought that Trump’s tweet implied Gillibrand exchanged sexual favors for political donations.

NO MATTER HOW OLD A WOMAN GETS, SHE WILL ALWAYS BE HER DADDY’S LITTLE GIRL. I EXPECT IT’S THAT WAY ALL OVER THE CIVILIZED WORLD.

Eric Trump: Kirsten Gillibrand visited my dad’s office ‘every three days’ to ask for campaign money
“I remember Kirsten Gillibrand when she came into his office every three days to ask him for money and asking for major campaign contributions,” Eric Trump, 33, told WABC radio host Rita Cosby in an interview Wednesday. “There is no one who wanted to get into his office more than Kirsten Gillibrand.
Mr. Trump lashed out at the senator on Twitter Tuesday, calling her a “lightweight,” who would “come to my office ‘begging’ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them).”
Mrs. Gillibrand on Tuesday called the tweet a “sexist smear” and accused the president of trying to silence his accusers.

Thom Hartmann: Trump’s Tweet Slamming Gillibrand is ‘Impeachable’ Offense

BITCH, PLEASE
The perpetual outrage machine that is the left’s pathological loathing for President Trump keeps reaching new lows in absurdity, albeit only on an hourly basis.
Plenty of liberals have labeled Trump’s tweet slamming Democrat Senator and potential 2020 opponent Kirsten Gillibrand as “sexual harassment.” But liberal radio host Thom Hartmann went beyond that and described it — I’m not making this up — as grounds for impeachment.

USA Today: Trump is ‘not fit to clean the toilets’ at Obama’s presidential library
The paper used this interpretation to argue the President is unfit for office.
NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION HAS A SITTING PRESIDENT BEEN TREATED WITH THE DISRESPECT AND OVERT LOATHING THAT THIS ONE HAS… AND ALL BECAUSE HE DEFEATED THEIR CORRUPT STANDARD BEARER.

“With his latest tweet, clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office. Rock bottom is no impediment for a president who can always find room for a new low.”
They went on to say President Trump would be unworthy to do bathroom duty at the Obama library.

You Make This Difficult

After Tuesday night’s results my first inclination was to just ignore things for a few days. Then I look at the stats and see that there are still a few of you who actually come here even when Chrissy hasn’t posted anything. I enjoy doing this, but as it is in life, there are good days and bad days. Your only hope is that the good outnumber the bad. I’ve seen a few facts about the race Tuesday night I will attempt to synopsize (I don’t really care if that’s a word, it just sounded good). There’s no rhyme or reason to my rants…never has been. I’m not a professional writer. I’m not a professional anything unless being a pain in the ass counts. I don’t really mean to be, but I’m really good at it.

‘You Gotta Give the Devil Its Due’: Bannon Praises DNC’s ‘Ground Game’ in Alabama
“The DNC came in here — slipped in here — underneath the radar and did an amazing job of organizing — what’s my favorite word — ground game,” Bannon said.
He suggested that Democrats outworked Republicans and were able to drive voter turnout.

GOP’s Shelby played key role in Alabama Democrat’s victory
Shelby, Alabama’s senior senator and the state’s most influential official, publicly opposed GOP nominee Roy Moore and declared before the election that “the state of Alabama deserves better” than a former judge accused of sexual contact with teenage girls decades ago.
A former Democrat, Shelby, 83, announced weeks before the election that he had already cast an absentee ballot for another, unspecified Republican, even as President Donald Trump and other prominent state Republicans stood up for Moore.

Tammy Bruce: Republican Establishment Wants To Lose Senate Majority So Trump’s Agenda Fails
Conservative commentator Tammy Bruce, in a discussion about Alabama Republican candidate for Senate Roy Moore, said the Republican establishment want the party to lose the majority in the Senate so the Trump agenda fails. Bruce cited Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL), who announced he did not vote for Moore, and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who donated to the Democratic candidate Doug Jones, as examples.
“This is a test for the president,” Bruce said Tuesday on FOX News’ Hannity. “I think what you’ve seen with Shelby going against it. Jeff Flake, giving money to this guy. I think the Republicans in the Senate want to lose the Senate. I think they want the president’s agenda to fail and the only way to really achieve that is to suddenly become the minority.”
“Tammy, that is a profound, a deeply troubling thing you just said,” host Sean Hannity said.
https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2017/12/12/tammy_bruce_republican_establishment_wants_to_lose_senate_majority_so_trumps_agenda_fails.html

She may be spot on. The Republican elites care nothing for being in the majority. If they did, they’d have helped the president with his agenda. All they care about is getting their share of the money. It’s far easier to sit back and make false claims about what you would do if you had the power than to actually do it.
Spin it any way you want…now the Dems can’t hold Moore over every Republican next year.
Jones can’t win the general in 2020.
The democrats got one of the heaviest black turnouts ever. They also offered cash for votes. Heavily black Montgomery County waited until all the other counties had reported before they released their totals.
Some of you may remember the close presidential race in 1960 between John Kennedy and Richard Nixon. Nixon was leading, but Mayor Daley was withholding the totals from Cook County. Whoever won Illinois won the election. He waited to see how many votes they needed to steal the election. That’s where the legend of the dead voter came from. They succeeded and the rest, as they say, is history. They’ve been getting away with it for decades and will continue to because they pay absolutely no price for it.

Trump: I Was Right About the Alabama Senate Race
But the president, who backed Moore’s primary opponent Luther Strange, wasn’t done commenting on the race, tweeting Wednesday:
“The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!”

Steve Bannon’s Big Loss in Alabama
The big loser in Tuesday’s Alabama’s special Senate election was not the Republican Party. They had already lost weeks ago, the moment the Washington Post wrote their (carefully vetted, in this instance) exposé of the thirty-year-old sexual proclivities of Judge Roy Moore.
In many ways, the Republicans are lucky not to have Moore to deal with in Congress. They can face obvious White House aspirant Kirsten Gillibrand and her merry band of hypocrites with a straight face.

Why Republicans Shouldn’t Worry Too Much About Moore’s Loss
Even with the loss of a seat to Jones, Republicans still retain enough of a majority to pass whatever legislation they want, provided all 51 Republican senators vote in lockstep. Senate Republicans passed a budget in October that allows leadership to pass legislation with only 51 “yes” votes and bypass filibusters from Democrats altogether.
Jones also won’t be a factor Republicans have to consider for a number of weeks. Leadership announced Tuesday that Jones will not likely be seated until after the Christmas recess, which means Republicans will maintain their 52 seat majority while finalizing tax reform and negotiating the upcoming budget agreement.

Comparing Moore in 2012 to Moore in 2017
Comparing Trump in 2016 to Moore in 2017

In 2012, Moore won a state Supreme Court seat. In 2017 he outperformed his margins in 32 counties, but in 35 others he did worse.
Every single county swung left compared to 2016, with some moving more than 15 points. Moore lost 12 counties that Trump won.

Chuck Todd Warns: ‘Every Republican’ Must ‘Fear for Their Political Lives’

“Now Republicans have to be asking themselves, is this a one-off, is this a candidate who was flawed, or is this a sign of what could happen in the 2018 midterms?” Rather than blame Moore for the loss, Todd had someone else in mind:
“First of all, Donald Trump is political toxin, period. Look at the year throughout. You have to go through – this is not a one-off. Let’s start – this started in Kansas, in Montana, in Georgia, there were all these special elections. And Democrats didn’t win them, but they were over-performing by 10 and 15 points. Democratic enthusiasm, Trump problems.”

CBS Celebrates Jones Campaign Efforts, Predicts ‘GOP On the Ropes’
The first segment was narrated by reporter Manuel Bojorquez, who declared that “Alabama voters rolled back the political tides yesterday.” He highlighted the efforts of the Jones campaign in the days leading up to the election: “Jones was able to energize a traditionally weak democratic network here … He was buoy by millions in outside money and outspent Moore on campaign ads by 5-1.”
“His campaign says supporter knocked on 300,000 doors and made more than a million phone calls. And Jones had multiple campaign appearances a day while Moore shied away from cameras, dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls,” Bojorquez added.

“We Did It!” – GOP Establishment and #NeverTrumpers Cheer Republican Roy Moore’s Loss
Several establishment Republicans and imposters cheered the election victory of Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama on Tuesday.
Bill Kristol‘s #NeverTrump leader Evan McMullin sent out an email on Wednesday cheering the Democrat victory.

These people have no commitment to the American people.
Democrat policies create pain and suffering on society.
These GOP elites could not care less.
So here is Evan McButthead.
Or, if you prefer, Evan McAsshat.

Breitbart News Daily Callers Explain Alabama GOP Senate Loss: ‘Mitch McConnell Is a Snake’
“I don’t see how there’s any justification for Mitch McConnell to have a fund where he gets to pick the candidate. Is that what the head of the party’s supposed to be doing?” asked Ralph in Colorado, criticizing McConnell’s influence over the Senate Leadership Fund (SLF).
The SLF is led by Steven Law, McConnell’s former chief of staff. The SLF spent millions of dollars supporting Sen. Luther Strange’s (R-AL) failed primary campaign against Roy Moore.

Dems Find Winning Formula
“The Democrats finally got their narrative shifting win even if it was the result of accusing an honorable man of being a child molester and plumbing the gutters of racial demagoguery. The party and its radical left backers in California threw everything that they had into this election and it worked, setting up three years of sexual smears to come that they hope will result in their return to power.

However, they couldn’t have pulled it off without a huge helping hand from Republicans who with the exception of President Trump, refused to support their own candidate and losing a Senate seat that should have been theirs for the taking. It’s probably more accurate to attribute Jones’ big win to Moore being fragged by his own troops led by Mitch McConnell who made it clear that the judge would never be seated if he did win by threatening an immediate ethics investigation into the four-decades-old allegations from a handful of women.

Will the women now simply go away? That is probably a pretty safe bet, they have served their purpose. Even with their win, it took a massive mobilization of black voters and a registration of felons to beat Moore and now that they have served their purpose, the Democrats will forget about them and move on to the next race.” – DONN MARTEN

Dem Rep Hijacks Rosenstein Hearing To Talk Sexual Harassment
Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee went on an inexplicable rant about sexual harassment claims during a congressional hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

“What intentions does the Department of Justice have to allow these women, who are accusing the president of sexual misconduct and have never been heard in terms of a public setting…what does the Department of Justice intend to do?”
“If they file a lawsuit, they’re free to do so, it would be a Department matter” Rosenstein responded somewhat incredulously.

Jones Wins! RINOS Rejoice!

from Drudge:

DEM WINS ALABAMA
WHITE HOUSE SHOCK
BANNON BUSTED

It cost the democrats and the McConnell mob $100 million and a non-stop 6-week assault by their media hitmen to keep just enough republicans at home to eke out a narrow victory. The commie prick will serve the next two years but in all likelihood will not be re-elected in a state like Alabama. The democrats couldn’t care less. They picked up an invaluable seat to encourage the mindless army of parasites who support them that they can wrest back the House next year.

The first item on the agenda? Of course: IMPEACH TRUMP!!

I still do not watch broadcast news but I’m sure there are back slaps all around at a smear campaign well done. Such is the state of politics today. The key for success seems to be to have a bevy of women come forward against every vulnerable republican male and accuse them of sexual misconduct. At least this takes away Franken’s excuse for not leaving the senate.

ALABAMA ELECTION RESULTS: Judge Roy Moore Against “Lynch Mob Media” …Update: DEMOCRAT JONES WINS ALABAMA

GOPe Spent $500,000 to Defeat Roy Moore and Campaigns Against Him — Then Trashes Steve Bannon When He Loses

Republican elites spent at least $500,000 against Republican candidate Roy Moore in Alabama.

  • Anti-Trump presidential candidate Evan McMullin spent $500,000 on digital and TV ads that ask Alabama conservatives to reject Republican nominee Roy Moore’s Senate bid.
  • Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell told Roy Moore to step down.
  • Republican Senator Richard Shelby told CNN on Sunday that he would not vote for Judge Roy Moore.
  • Roy Moore lost tonight in Alabama to ultra-liberal Doug Jones by .7% in a special election with a very low turnout

These GOP elites must be wiped completely out of the Republican party. These are not honest people.  They do not give a rat’s ass about your well-being.

Alabama Senate Special Election – JONES wins

While this was a candidate specific loss, it certainly will be spun as part of a wave that started in Virginia and will be a precursor of the midterms. It also means that the Trump agenda is on the ropes, with just a single vote margin next year. Tax reform needs to pass this year (since Jones will not be seated until next term), or it may not get done. You probably can forget anything else big getting done before the midterms, not with McCain and Collins and a couple of others who barely vote with Trump.

Cheers Can Be Heard on CNN as Dem Jones Takes the Lead in Alabama

In the early part of the 10:00 p.m. Eastern hour, and before the Alabama Senate race was called for Democrat Doug Jones, cheers could be heard on CNN’s live broadcast as Wolf Blitzer announced Jones had taken the lead.  “All of a sudden, Doug Jones is taking the lead.”

“Hale County just came in, which puts him back in the lead,” explained Inside Politics host John King as they stood in front of the map. And as they spoke an audible whoop from off-camera could be heard.

THERE WILL BE HOURS AND HOURS OF COMMENTARY ABOUT THE REBUKE OF THE TRUMP AGENDA AND THE BRIGHTENING FUTURE FOR DEMOCRATS ALL DAY TODAY AND FOR SOME TIME TO COME.

I’ll be gone a large part of the day and we’re braving the hordes at the mall to get gift cards for our 11 and 16 year old granddaughters at…Victoria’s Secret.  YAAAA!!!!!!

After my blood pressure came down, DW said they have a line of things for younger girls called “Pink.” A call to my eldest confirmed this and said they LOVED Victoria’s Secret. I always viewed it like Larry The Cable guy does… like a grown man’s Chuck E. Cheese.

While we’re there we’ll stop at the food court. There’s a little place called the Thai Hut that serves Mango Chicken. Really yummy. She doesn’t know it yet, but I’ve put a little away and plan to stop by Zale’s Jewelers (hint: I don’t wear jewelry). It never hurts to put a little honey on the biscuit, know what I mean?

[CtH: Pete and Dearest are tied for the PoliNation Husband Award!  I’m getting a closet and a pedometer for Christmas.  I asked for the pedometer, cuz I’ve been getting strong enough lately that we have been able to take Daisey out on the Rail Trail!  Yay me!!  And I want to know how far I walk for my Rehab Stats Report I give my 2 doctors.  We’ve measured our street, so that’s easy, but the Rail Trails don’t have any mile markers.  The closet was a TOTAL SURPRISE!  He just up and cleaned it out and said I could have it!  He’s a pack rat, so this was a MAJOR thing for him.  God works in mysterious ways His wonders to behold!]


It’s going to be difficult going through this garbage for awhile, but I’ll do the best I can.

Two Weeks Until Christmas

But you knew that already. It’s also the eve of the showdown in Alabama where the democrats have gone completely off the rails in their frenzied attempts to destroy Judge Roy Moore. They’ve pulled out all the stops and once again proved there are no depths they will not plumb in their assault on conservatism with a huge assist from the phony ‘republicans’ that infest the DC swamp.

‘Morning Joe’ coming to Alabama: Joe Scarborough broadcasting live on election day
READ SOME OF THE COMMENTS AND YOU’LL GET A FEEL FOR WHAT THE NATIVES THINK OF THESE YANKEES DOWN THERE.

The program airs from 5 a.m.-8 a.m. CT and will include a live audience. The broadcast comes as Alabamians go to the polls to decide between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones. The special election has drawn international attention which grew after Moore, the former Alabama Chief Justice, was accused of having improper sexual contact with teenage girls in the 1970s.

Flabbergasted: Frank Luntz Shocked As Alabamians Back Roy Moore in Vice News Focus Group

FRANK LUNTZ IS A USEFUL IDIOT OF THE LEFT.

“Roy Moore is not a miserable man,” retired nail salon owner Peggy Montalbano said. “This man has more integrity than you can find in the entire Congress right now. Don’t fall for the George Soros assassination plan.”

“The truth is will come out,” Montalbano said. “These women are all going to be proven

. Just like the 16 that went against President Trump, just right before the election.”

“What about the accusers of Bill Clinton?” Luntz asked her.

“The accusers of Clinton, everybody knows he’s a womanizer,” Montalbano said.

“But people think the same thing about Roy Moore,” Luntz said.

“But with Bill Clinton, they went to the courthouse and they filed papers,” Porter answered for the group. “They didn’t wait 40 years to do it. That’s a huge difference than just going to the media only just six weeks before an election.”

Allegations have been made about both Moore and Trump, but in both of their cases no actual evidence has emerged to substantiate the allegations. In Moore’s case, just this week, one accuser admitted she forged the yearbook inscription she and her activist attorney Gloria Allred originally claimed was written by Moore himself decades ago.

Obama Records Get-Out-The-Vote Call For Doug Jones
OBAMA COULDN’T GET A GARBAGE COLLECTOR ELECTED DOWN THERE.

Jones’ campaign advisers were still unsure on Sunday night about whether they would actually use the taped call from Obama, amid fears that the former president’s endorsement could backfire and hurt Jones, according to the NYT. The exact contents of Obama’s call remain unclear.

Sole Democratic Alabama congresswoman says electing Roy Moore would ‘harken us back to the days of segregation’

Rep. Terri Sewell, the only Congressional Democrat from Alabama, said Sunday that the race between Republican Roy Moore, accused of preying on teenagers, and Democrat Doug Jones is a fight for the ‘soul’ of Alabama and the nation.

‘And this candidate, Roy Moore, will only take us backwards and harken us back to the days of segregation and Doug Jones will take us forward,’ the Democratic lawmaker charged.

RACE IS THE ONLY CARD THEY HAVE. IT GETS REALLY OLD.

[CtH: Especially given that THEY belong to the party that created and enforced segregation!]

Why Democrats win even if they lose in Alabama

The party will either pick up a seat in the Deep South — or have Roy Moore to campaign against in the midterms.
If Doug Jones prevails, Democrats expect it will further excite their base, bolster candidate recruitment and fuel fundraising heading into 2018, coming off their near-sweep of last month’s elections. They will revel in picking up a Senate seat in the Deep South, especially in a state so central to President Donald Trump’s political rise and where he earlier backed the loser of the GOP primary

If Roy Moore wins, they’ll spend the next year yoking every Republican they can to the accused child predator and a president who welcomed him into the GOP fold. They’ll be quick to remind everyone of all the other comments Moore has made against Muslims and gays and in favor of Vladimir Putin’s view of America as evil, as well as his rosy view of slave-era America.

Just Killing Time

Long naps in the afternoon often mean short amount of sleep at night. It’s not so bad, though. Television on in the background, the house is quiet. A lot I didn’t get to yesterday. At one time I thought of getting together a group of procrastinators, but I never got around to it.

Donald Trump’s Art of the Insult

New film shows how pushing back hard helped Trump win the presidency.

THE LEFT NEVER FIGURED IT OUT. WE WERE AS SICKENED BY PHONY CONSERVATIVE BLOWHARDS WHO HAD NO SPINE AS WE WERE THE LEFTIST GARBAGE WHO GOT OFF ON FEEDING US A SHIT SANDWICH CLAIMING THEY KNEW HOW TO LIVE OUR LIVES BETTER THAN WE DID. THEN ALONG CAME A MAN WHO WASN’T A PHONY. THE MEDIA WHORES HATED HIM. WE LOVED HIM.

“You speak your mind,” says Megyn Kelly in the early going. As Joel Gilbert’s new film Trump: The Art of the Insult confirms, Donald Trump does indeed speak his mind.

In The Art of the Insult, candidate Trump says he would “bomb the shit out of ISIS” and that the San Bernardino shooter was a “son of a bitch,” and that Mexico would pay for the wall. Someone who speaks his mind like that, even a casual observer might think, would stand no chance of becoming President of the United States. To give away the ending, he did become president and the film helps explain the victory.

In the early going, some journalist wonders why Trump has to fire back every time someone goes after him. He was one of the first to push back hard because, as he said, “The last thing I want to be called is weak.” The aggressive candidate found a target-rich environment in both political parties.

Mahmoud Abbas: US Can No Longer Broker Peace Process
YOU MEAN THE PEACE PROCESS WHERE YOUR HAMAS DOGS SAY ISRAEL HAS NO RIGHT TO EXIST?? THAT PEACE PROCESS??

“We reject the American decision over Jerusalem,” he said, reports Reuters. “With this position the United States has become no longer qualified to sponsor the peace process.”

World leaders ranging from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to Pope Francis warned President Trump the move could jeopardize the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

[CtH: Methinks if there ever was such a thing as an “Israeli-Palestinian peace process”, it would have accomplished something like peace by now.  The Son of Hamas said it came close once, but the process was deliberately sabotaged by Palestinians whose careers would end if the fighting ended.]

Manufacturing Employment Up 189,000 Since Trump’s Election; Federal Government Employment Down 3,000

In November 2016, there were 12,325,000 people employed in manufacturing in the United States. By this November, that had climbed to 12,514,000.

“Since a recent low in November 2016, manufacturing employment has increased by 189,000,” the BLS said in the press release it put out this morning with the November employment numbers.

China Cutting Tariffs Just Weeks After Trump’s Asia Trip
COME HERE FOR THE INFORMATION THE MEDIA WHORES REFUSE TO TELL YOU.

Following President Donald Trump’s recent trip to Asia, China has released a long list of dramatic tariff cuts on a range of imported consumer goods. In fact, over 200 different products will see an average reduction of approximately 10 percent.

China’s unilateral decision to cut tariffs, however modest, should prove beneficial for its major trading partners, including the United States. The cuts will also benefit the people of China, allowing them greater access to a variety of products at more competitive costs.

Trent Franks Resigns, Effective Immediately
In the wake of Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) stepping down from Congress, some disturbing stories have emerged from his former staffers. Namely, he offered one woman $5 million to serve as his surrogate, and his aides were worried that he wanted to have sex with them to impregnate them.

The sources said Franks approached two female staffers about acting as a potential surrogate for him and his wife, who has struggled with fertility issues for years. But the aides were concerned that Franks was asking to have sexual relations with them.

Arpaio hinted at his potential political plans after the Daily Beast asked him whether he intended to run for Rep. Trent Franks’ (R-AZ) seat after the Arizona congressman steps down January 31.

“No, I would not consider it, but I am considering running for the Senate, Flake’s seat,” Arpaio replied, referring to Sen. Jeff Flake’s (R-AZ) decision not to run for re-election.

New Poll Finds 92% of Democrats Uninformed, Ignorant and Easily Played

Democrats and the Obama FBI paid cash for a fake Russian dossier so they could spy on Donald Trump at Trump tower.

But Democrat voters are ignorant.

And Democrats rely on the fact that their supporters are stupid and easily played.

A new poll released this week by CBS News found that 92% of Democrats believe Trump advisors had improper dealings with Russia.
The poll claims 43% of Republicans believe the fairy tale… which is complete rubbish.
Of course, Republican voters are correct. After a year of screaming liberal media headlines and conspiracy theories there is NO EVIDENCE that any Trump official made improper contact with the Russians.

This was all a media lie to destroy Trump.

THEY THINK WE’RE IGNORANT REDNECKS.
THERE’S AN OLD SAYING: DON’T PISS ON MY LEG AND TELL ME IT’S RAINING.

DNC ‘Unity Reform Commission’ Interrupted by Progressive Protestors

DNC Panel Recommends Huge Cut in Superdelegates to Avoid Nominating Another Loser Like Hillary Clinton

A commission has been set up to reform the DNC’s nominating process after Hillary Clinton high-jacked it and turned the institution into a Clinton-ized (criminal) organization in a desperate attempt to become President.
SHE HAD THE NOMINATION SEWN UP BEFORE THE PRIMARY EVEN STARTED BECAUSE SHE HAD ALL THE SUPER DELEGATES IN HER POCKET.

In her new book, “Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns that Put Donald Trump in the White House,” Brazile admits the Clinton campaign engaged in “essentially … money laundering,” where state parties were sucked dry to fund her failed presidential effort.

That’s in essence how a Joy Reid guest has described Roy Moore’s supporters. On Reid’s MSNBC show this morning, Eric Guster, an Alabama lawyer, said:

“Roy Moore’s coalition, they [are] in the rural counties. The Bible Belt. The people who love to go to church on Sunday. The ones who want to build a wall and keep brown people out of the United States.”

Judge Releases 19-Year-Old Charged in Facebook Video Torture of Disabled Chicago Teen
The first of four Chicago suspects accused of beating and torturing a disabled teenager and broadcasting the attack on Facebook has pleaded guilty, but a judge let her off without prison time, a report says.

The judge did not assign jail time because, he said, “I’m not sure if I did that you’d be coming out any better.”

Hooks insisted that his sentence would give Covington the chance to put her life on a productive path.

YOU’D BE COMING OUT ANY BETTER? BETTER THAN WHAT??  IF THIS HAD BEEN WHITES BEATING A RETARDED BLACK KID SENSELESS, THEY’D DO 50 YEARS IN PRISON.  ONLY WHITES CAN COMMIT HATE CRIMES. THAT’S HOW SCREWED UP THINGS ARE NOW.  (Yes,I was pounding on the keys.)

WaPo Reporter Dave Weigel Deleted Bogus Trump Rally Photo After White House Called Him Out Saturday Morning

The White House called out Washington Post politics reporter Dave Weigel early Saturday morning on his lying tweet mocking President Donald Trump about the size of the crowd at Trump’s rally in Pensacola, Florida Friday night, prompting Weigel to delete the tweet within minutes. Later Saturday, Trump went after Weigel on Twitter demanding an apology which Weigel gave.
Weigel was mocking a tweet by Trump posted at 7:41 a.m. EST about the rally crowd being “packed to the rafters”.

With regard to Weigel’s claim he saw Trump in the photo, there are two issues that a decent reporter would notice: One, the man in question is walking virtually alone with no Secret Service or aides in front and behind him. Second that the man in question is wearing a black tie where as Trump wore a bright red tie at the rally.

Army-Navy Game’s Stunning National Anthem Rendition Puts Every Kneeling NFL Player To Shame

This year marks the 118th time the two teams have met. The teams meet in a neutral city between their respective academies. They often play in NFL stadiums due to the enormous number of active duty and veteran fans who wish to attend.

Before the game, the choirs of the Annapolis and West Point academies joined together to sing the national anthem. It was a solemn moment and was made even more beautiful by the falling snow.

Friday Leftovers

The original plan was to do this when I finished delivering my papers. Then I decide to take a nap. It was Friday, so breakfast with my uncles. Then I went for my first appointment to have cortisone injections in my back. I came home and the rest of the day was pretty well shot. However, there was a lot going on and I felt obligated to lay some of this down since I have a couple hours before I’m off again in 15 degree weather to keep people informed.

IS HE IN OR OUT?

I tuned in to C-Span Thursday to watch that flea-infested gutter rat Stuart Smalley resign from the Senate. I watched almost 5 minutes of it before my gag reflex betrayed me and I had to turn it off.

Then, being the petty little prick he is, he whined about Trump and Judge Moore. Then it dawned on me. He’s waiting to see if Moore wins next Tuesday. If he does he’ll probably un-resign and claim if Moore stays, he will too. Notice Conyers and Franken are the Democrats’ sacrificial lambs because both are extremely safe seats. How much more liberal can you get than Detroit?

Sen. Al Franken Will Resign ‘in the Coming Weeks’

“A couple months ago I felt that we had entered an important moment in the history of this country. We finally listened to women.”

Ready?’: Democratic senators and staffers shed tears during Al Franken’s resignation speech

Only one Republican sat in on Franken’s speech, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. The rest of the Republican side sat empty.

If you as a woman truly believe a man is a creepy serial sex assaulter of women, do you get all misty-eyed and line up to tightly hug him when he resigns from the Senate following your demand he do so in the face of numerous accusations of sexual assault? If you are a Democrat woman senator, the answer is ‘yes’, even though several of the allegations involved Franken groping and forcing kisses during hugs. Franken was also photographed assaulting a woman in her sleep.

In his speech, Franken name-checked former Sen. Paul Wellstone, the longtime Minnesota Democrat on three occasions. Franken famously defeated former Sen. Norm Coleman in 2009 by 312 votes — who Wellstone was set to face off against in 2002 until a plane crash took his life only eleven days before the election — giving Democrats the much-needed 60th vote for a brief period of time that allowed them to pass the Affordable Care Act.

If Moore wins and Franken un-resigns, will Senate Democrats back him up?

If Moore, accused of preying on young girls, is elected, Democrats will hammer Republicans unceasingly. Even if he’s not, Democrats made clear their intent to raise anew the several allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Trump before the 2016 election in a bid to make Republicans answer on this politically super-charged issue.

CBS Mourns Franken Resignation: ‘The End to a Potentially Storied Career’
You know, Al Franken is one of very few Democrats in Congress who can truly claim to have had a nationwide progressive profile, even before he came to the Senate in 2009, because of his Air America radio show.  And that led to him having, you know, a true ability to raise money for other lawmakers.

Female lieutenant governor expected to replace Franken
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is expected to appoint his lieutenant governor and close ally, Tina Smith, to Al Franken’s seat, three people familiar with the Democratic governor’s thinking said.

But that appointment would be just the start of an upheaval in Minnesota. Part of the reason Smith could be heading to the Senate, the sources said, is that she has indicated no interest in running for Congress in the past and would not run for the remainder of Franken’s term, which expires in 2020, in a 2018 special election. That would clear the way for a wide open Democratic primary next year.

Civil War in Detroit’s Dirty Dynasty

After spending almost 60 years in Congress as a politician and a staffer, Rep. John Conyers II has to decide which of his many relatives to pass Michigan’s 13th congressional district to. It’s like King Lear, if Shakespeare’s fictional monarch had been forced to step down after groping a woman in church.

The 13th is a very nice district to inherit. Conyers has won it by 77%, 79% and 82%. Fidel Castro couldn’t ask for better elections. Whichever Conyers clan member gets it will be staying in Congress for 60 years.

And will inherit Rep. Conyers’ government Cadillac Escalade.

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.

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.

Obama Can’t Resist Urge to Bash Trump Overseas
IT’S JUST KILLING HIM TO SEE ALL HIS DEVIL’S WORK BEING UNDONE.

This weekend, Obama proved once again that he is incapable of affording his successor the same courtesy shown by his predecessor. While speaking in Paris, Obama cited a lack of American leadership on climate change.

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.

THE DERSH WOULD TEND TO DISAGREE WITH HER.

Dershowitz Slams Feinstein Over Obstruction Argument: ‘Doesn’t Know What She’s Talking About’

“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: Trump to Pull U.S. From U.N. Migration Compact
Officials stated that the New York Declaration, a non-binding political declaration unanimously approved in a non-binding resolution in September 2016, “contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with U.S. immigration and refugee policies and the Trump Administration’s immigration principles.”

Trump Dumps Michelle Obama School Lunch Fiasco – Chocolate Milk Is Back!
I LOVED CHOCOLATE MILK IN SCHOOL
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has been dismissing Michelle Obama’s signature school lunch rules all year.

“This is not reducing the nutritional standards whatsoever,” Perdue said in May when announcing the Agriculture Department’s intention to bring chocolate milk back to schools. “I wouldn’t be as big as I am today without flavored milk.”

Pelosi: GOP Tax Bill Is ‘End Of The World’

Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed Monday the Republican tax bill is the end of the world. Calling the bill “armageddon,” Pelosi said, “There’s really a very hard way to come back from this.”

[CtH: Seriously?  Has anyone checked if Nancy is taking her meds?]

MSNBC Guest Says Republican Tax Bill Is ‘Akin to Rape’

House Republicans Already Shooting Down Tax Bill’s Promises

FLAKE ISN’T RUNNING AGAIN BECAUSE HE’D GET HIS ASS WHIPPED.  WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM THE MAINE PAIN?

Collins said she received a promise that the Senate would consider two bipartisan pieces of legislation that would ostensibly mitigate the negative effects that could come from the tax bill’s repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate. Flake said he received a “firm commitment from Senate Leadership and the administration” to work on a permanent protections for the soon-to-be-ended Obama-era program that shields children of undocumented immigrants.

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.”

[CtH: This should read, “It is vital we do something to rebuild the trust we threw away in our non-stop efforts to promote Democrat politicians and policies.”]

Before all y’all get your panties in a bunch about Trump and Russia, let’s just cast our minds back to 2008 when NOBODY ON THE LEFT had any problem at all with the FACT that CANDIDATE OBAMA’s CAMPAIGN TEAM did not merely seek to contact, but actually met with Iranian leaders multiple times.

Even before the Administration’s anti-regulation push comes into full force next year, the President has saved taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars from streamlining and other reforms thus far. “Simply cutting red tape and putting Obama-era regulations on hold have already saved $378 million since President Trump took office,” reports Paul Bedard, citing an American Action Forum report. “That savings is expected to jump into the billions next year when the administration’s anti-regulation campaign hits full stride.”

The abortion rate in America has fallen 22 percent since 2005, reaching a new historic low, according to data released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week.

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/nov/29/abortion-rate-us-reaches-new-low/

Diante Johnson, president of the Black Conservative Foundation, writes that historic tax cuts are especially welcome news for the African-American entrepreneurial community. “African-Americans were better off in 2000 than they were just last year, according to the latest Census data,” Johnson writes, citing dropping median incomes, stagnant wages, and “alarmingly high” unemployment. Minority entrepreneurs own 29 percent of U.S. businesses, and lower taxes will allow them to expand opportunity in their communities significantly.

During a speech last week, Vice President Mike Pence made an innocuous comment that was obviously true. The Washington Post’s fact-checking team agreed it was true. But that didn’t stop them from awarding his claim a “three Pinnochios” condemnation.

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said, “It doesn’t do any good to serve nutritious meals if they wind up in the trash can.” Some of Michelle Obama’s overly strict lunch requirements will thankfully disappear as of July 1. The new regs will relax sodium limits, whole-grain requirements, and allow flavored milk with 1 percent back into school cafeterias nationwide.
