Democrats Win!… Sort of

In the most expensive House race in history, the Democrats are claiming victory, even though they only lost the election by 7 points.  This puts them at 0-5 in the 2017 special elections races.

Karen Handel Beats Oss-off Pelosi Democrat!!

[CTH: The looks on theirs faces!!! LOLOL]

Hollywood Fail: Jon Ossoff Loses Georgia Congressional Election Despite Massive Celebrity Help
Milano previously said she wanted “to puke” after Ossoff’ failure to reach the 50 percent threshold required to avoid Tuesday’s runoff.

On Tuesday, the Who’s the Boss star launched a social media campaign encouraging people to tweet photos of themselves after hitting the polls.

Actresses Sarah Silverman and Debra Messing attacked Ossoff’s opponent, Karen Handel, on social media in the run-up to Tuesday’s election.

Despite the belief of numerous political experts that Ossoff would fall short in the Republican-dominated district that helped send Trump to the White House, the president had earlier declared Tuesday’s election to be a matchup between “Hollywood vs. Georgia.”

THERE WERE TWO OTHER SPECIAL ELECTIONS; THE DEMS DIDN’T DO ANY BETTER

The Latest: Republican wins close victory in South Carolina


Republican Ralph Norman has won a victory that was closer than expected in a special election to fill the South Carolina congressional seat vacated by Mick Mulvaney.

The Republican won just more than 51 percent of votes cast Tuesday in the 5th District. That’s compared with about 48 percent for Democrat Archie Parnell.

CNN’s Chalian: No ‘Moral Victory Here’ for Dems in Georgia Defeat

Chalian talking about how the victory was huge for Republican even though it was a seat they have controlled for a number of years. “This was the best shot Democrats in these special elections to really try to make a victory in the Trump era,” he explained to Lemon. “And they came up short, which now, of course, is going to create a whole series of questions about how the Democratic Party should run in the era of Donald Trump because they came up short here.”

Climate Liar … I mean Activist … Josh Fox wants other people to hug terrorists.

Remember when the Obama administration said that the Washington Redskins could no longer have copyright protection because their team name was offensive? Guess what? The Supreme Court ruled 8-0 that the Obama administration got it wrong and that there is no ‘hate speech’ exception to the First Amendment. This will have huge implications for Christians.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2017/06/19/supreme-court-unanimously-reaffirms-there-is-no-hate-speech-exception-to-the-first-amendment/

President Trump has called a halt to federal reporting requirements related to possible computer disruptions due to the Y2K bug. Gosh … it only took seventeen years! And I remember when Candidate Obama promised to go through the federal budget with a scalpel to cut out stupid and wasteful expenditures. Pretty dull scalpel. ::snort::

The Environmental Protection Agency is scrapping the department’s nearly $1 million in free gym memberships for employees. It’s about damn time they stopped such an egregious abuse of taxpayer funds.

Another reason to NOT move to California. Lawmakers in liberal California have committed $50 million in taxpayer funding for legal services and representation for illegal aliens.

Canada is rapidly throwing off its reputation for being a nation of nice people. Canada’s Senate passed a law Thursday making it illegal to use the wrong gender pronouns. Critics say that Canadians who do not subscribe to progressive gender theory could be accused of hate crimes, jailed, fined, and made to take anti-bias training. The bill now only needs royal assent from the governor general.

The North Korean communist regime detained an American citizen for removing a propaganda poster from a hotel wall. After more than a year in the tender care of the NoKos, Otto Warmbier has died. President Trump condemned the ‘brutal’ North Korean regime and called Warmbier’s family to offer his condolences.

It’s a Gray and Rainy Monday

Be still and know that I am

Continued prayers for Rep. Steve Scalise, whose condition has been upgraded to serious following additional surgery, and for his family, friends, and medical team. May God grant them strength and skill and peace. Amen.

Prayers for the sailors who lost their lives on the USS Fitzgerald and for their families and friends. May God have mercy on their souls and grant them peace. Amen.

We’ve witnessed a comedian holding up a severed ‘head’ of the President, and a Shakespeare play where Trump is assassinated instead of Caesar, then last week’s attempted massacre of GOP politicians. No matter, Senator Elizabeth Warren says: “Donald, you ain’t seen nasty yet.” Real classy, Senator Warren.

Today, President Donald J. Trump will host a working session with technology leaders in the private sector to develop creative solutions that will streamline government services. Modernizing government is an enormous undertaking and requires the best minds working in concert toward providing services that are effective and cost-efficient.

CNN Mislabels Unity Moment Of Prayer At Congressional Baseball Game As “Democrats Praying”

THE RADIO ON FRIDAY MORNING DESCRIBED IT AS A MOMENT OF BIPARTISANSHIP. HE ALSO ADDED IT WAS UNCLEAR HOW LONG IT WOULD LAST. THAT’S EASY — IT NEVER EXISTED. DEMOCRATS’ KNEELING WAS STRICTLY FOR SHOW.


Democratic Staffers Booed Trump At ‘Unity’ Congressional Baseball Game

So much for defanging the poisonous debate in Washington.

Dozens of congressional staffers erupted into boos, jeers and even vulgar gesticulations Thursday when President Trump appeared in a video at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park.

Mr. Trump delivered a message of unity, but some fans in the stands weren’t having any of it.
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jun/15/congressional-staffers-boo-trump-unity-baseball-ga/

FROM DIOGENES:
Okay, Now That’s Just Downright Offensive!

I know it was just a short three hour phony show of unity by democrats solely for media purposes, but seeing this lying leftist bag of bones wearing LSU Colors is disgusting. Not only a slap in the face to an Historic Southern University, but to the best sports conference in the country, The SEC. Whoever’s idea it was to hand her that shirt needs a good kneecapping! Yeah, I said it!

President Trump’s Statement on Shooting

As you all know, shortly after 7:00 a.m. this morning, a gunman opened fire on members of Congress and their staffs as they were practicing for tomorrow’s annual charity baseball game.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the crime, and the assailant has now died from his injuries. The FBI is leading the investigation and will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.

Congressman Steve Scalise, a member of House leadership, was shot and badly wounded, and is now in stable condition at the hospital, along with two very courageous Capitol Police officers. At least two others were also wounded.

Many lives would have been lost if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol Police officers who took down the gunman despite sustaining gunshot wounds during a very, very brutal assault.

Melania and I are grateful for their heroism and praying for the swift recovery of all victims.

Congressman Scalise is a friend, and a very good friend. He’s a patriot and he’s a fighter. He will recover from this assault. And, Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers not only of the entire city behind you, but of an entire nation and, frankly, the entire world. America is praying for you and America is praying for all of the victims of this terrible shooting.

I spoke with Steve’s wife, Jennifer, and I pledged to her our full and absolute support — anything she needs. We are with her and with the entire Scalise family.

I have also spoken with Chief Matthew Verderosa — he’s doing a fantastic job — of the Capitol Police to express our sympathies for his wounded officers and to express my admiration for their courage. Our brave Capitol Police perform a challenging job with incredible skill, and their sacrifice makes democracy possible.

We also commend the brave first responders from Alexandria Police, Fire and Rescue who rushed to the scene. Everyone on that field is a public servant — our courageous police, our congressional aides who work so tirelessly behind the scenes with enormous devotion, and our dedicated members of Congress who represent our people.

We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because, above all, they love our country.

We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans, that our children deserve to grow up in a nation of safety and peace, and that we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good.

Please take a moment today to cherish those you love, and always remember those who serve and keep us safe. God bless them all, God bless you, and God Bless America. Thank you.

The Path We’re On

The difference between humans and wild animals is the capacity for reasoned thought. Apparently the left has largely lost that ability. The dichotomy between political parties today could not be more stark. I work with a piece of human sludge, a high school dropout. He’s rude, loud, pushy, and cannot finish a sentence without dropping the “F” bomb at least once. He makes sure everyone knows what he’s thinking and doesn’t want to hear what anyone else thinks. Fittingly he came in today and was not unhappy with yesterday’s attempted assassination. “F*** the republicans!”

This is the enemy we face. It is no longer possible to have a differing opinion from these domestic terrorists without personal risk. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that those of us who are the constant victims of the socialist assaults from all quarters will one day rise up and say “enough is enough.” There are 66 million people who voted for Trump who watch what transpires every day and are willing to fight back. Until then the wild animals will seek out the weak to prey on, egged on by a complicit media who profit from the Soros-funded chaos.

Wash Times: First Shots Of Second American Civil War Have Been Fired

Since the election of 2016, the left has gone crazy. Their version of the Tea Party is called “Resistance” and the spearhead of that is a loosely formed terrorist group called “Antifa.” Antifa is short for Anti-Fascist. The irony of their name is not lost on those who actually know history, as their tactics are straight from the fascist playbook.

In the last few months, these groups have repeatedly disrupted peaceful pro-Trump rallies. They have called for and used violence against people who support the president, disagree with them and even against members of the media who will report things Antifa doesn’t want reported.

BERNIE SANDERS CONDEMNED YESTERDAYS SHOOTING BY ONE OF HIS ACOLYTES. HE THINKS WE HAVE FORGOTTEN THIS.

Sanders Fundraised in 2011 by Falsely Blaming Sarah Palin for Tucson Shooting

“Congresswoman Giffords publicly expressed concerns when Sarah Palin, on her website, placed her district in the cross-hairs of a rifle—and identified her by name below the image—as an encouragement to Palin supporters to eliminate her from Congress,” the Vermont senator wrote.

Sanders was hardly alone in blaming Palin at the time; the New York Times, the Atlantic, the New York Daily News, and Gawker all pointed to the map with the crosshairs.

Unhinged Rhetoric About ‘Nazis’ and Trump Derangement Syndrome Lead to Bloodshed

Well, it finally happened. We’ve been saying for months now that the breathless false narrative created by the media about Trump supporters was going to lead unstable people to do bad things. We’ve seen it in Berkeley, where masked Antifa thugs attacked “Nazis” (or anyone in a Trump hat). Then there was Kathy Griffin’s disgusting mock beheading of President Trump, where she put the Left’s violent fantasies on display, followed up very shortly with Shakespeare in the Park featuring the stabbing assassination of Donald Trump to wild applause and standing ovations. These people are sick in the head.

NYT Uses GOP Shooting To Falsely Attack Sarah Palin With Debunked Conspiracy Theory

“In 2011, when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire in a supermarket parking lot, grievously wounding Representative Gabby Giffords and killing six people, including a 9-year-old girl, the link to political incitement was clear.”

They added later: “Though there’s no sign of incitement as direct as in the Giffords attack, liberals should of course hold themselves to the same standard of decency that they ask of the right.”

Republican receives threat after shooting, warning “one down, 216 to go…”


The lawmaker, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-New York, received an email with the subject line: “One down, 216 to go…,” according to a screenshot of the email provided by Tenney’s office.

The body of the email read: “Do you NOT expect this? When you take away ordinary peoples very lives in order to pay off the wealthiest among us, your own lives are forfeit. Certainly, your souls and morality were lost long before. Good riddance.” A threat was sent to Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-New York on June 14, 2017 after the shooting in Alexandria.

On Tenney’s official Facebook page, someone recently also posted a threatening comment aimed at her son, an active duty U.S. Marine currently deployed to the Middle East. The Memorial Day post said, “Waiting on your son to come back bagged,” according to a screenshot provided by Tenney’s office.

So Much for Civility: Matthews Smears Trump and ‘Weaselly’ Cabinet After Shooting

“Good evening. I’m Chris Matthews in Washington. Donald Trump and his ties with Moscow remain the big story here even on a day struck by violence,” he announced as he started his show.

Matthews was quite giddy as he read from a Washington Post article that claimed an anonymous source told them that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was now investigating Trump for obstruction of Justice. He then demonstrated how amazingly tone deaf he was by callously declaring that Mueller had Trump “in the crosshairs.”

A few minutes later, Mathews went on a diatribe about how much the President was used to controlling everything in his life, including poking at Trump’s marriage:

MATTHEWS: And they’re not weasels, these guys. These are men—particularly they are men in this case who have proud careers behind them, and they’d like to have proud legacies. They’re not like the weaselly people running around that table with him in that cabinet room the other day.

HuffPo Pulls Article Calling For ‘Ultimate Punishment’ Of Trump

Fuller’s piece contained rhetoric and imagery that seems tasteless, particularly after Wednesday’s events. Fuller boldly declares in the title that “Trump must be prosecuted — if convicted in a court of law — executed.” Fuller doesn’t stop there, however, as he insists that “impeachment isn’t enough” to “drain the swamp,” and to do so means doling out the “ultimate punishment [execution]” in order to fully restore the moral compass of the U.S.

1600 Notes

Clearly, some athletes are delighted for a chance to visit the Trump White House.

2017_06 12 NCAA Football Natl Champs at WH

President Donald J. Trump is dedicating this week to workforce development, focusing on steps to make it easier for industries to design, certify, and scale apprenticeship programs.

On Tuesday, President Trump, Labor Secretary Acosta, and Assistant to the President, Ivanka Trump, traveled to Wisconsin to tour several job training classrooms and participated in a roundtable discussion with local business owners. They also met with victims of Obamacare.

Nancy Pelosi recently sneered at Trump’s first six months in office, saying he promised “jobs jobs jobs jobs” but what had he really done?  Methinks the woman watches way too much MSNBC!

White House Makes Big Push on Job Growth: Fostering a Skilled Workforce Through Apprenticeships

Appearing on Fox and Friends Monday morning, White House special advisor and former business woman Ivanka Trump laid out the Trump administration’s goals to fill the six million job vacancies in states across the country.

“We’re constantly hearing from CEOs that they have job openings but they don’t have workers with the skill set they need to fill those jobs,” she said.

These six million jobs do NOT require a four-year college degree.  However, they do require more training than kids typically get in high school. Trump’s focus this week is on how his administration can help foster apprenticeship programs.

When Democrats were in power, they actually cheered about how many new people were receiving food stamps and unemployment benefits under Obama’s watch!

And while the public schools in their own ghettos continue to graduate kids who can’t read or cipher, they ranted about how tax payers had some kind of obligation to pay for COLLEGE.

Obama promised to destroy the coal industry. Trump promised to bring it back.

Pundits called Trump’s promise hot air, but the Corsa Coal Company just opened the first new U.S. coal mine in six years.
