And the Winner Is…

Trump broke the internet…

Ever the provocateur, the president yesterday released his much-anticipated list of “Fake News Award” winners. They were posted on GOP.com and the site summarily crashed from the surge of traffic. The media’s reaction was, as always, predictable. Rather than keep you in suspense, here’s the list and the ensuing fallout:

2017 Fake News Awards – The full list
1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.

2. ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.

3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.

4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.

5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.

6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.

7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”

8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.

9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.

10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.

11. And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!

Jim Acosta Fires Back At POTUS Trump After CNN Wins FOUR FAKE NEWS AWARDS

Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta was far from pleased after President Trump bestowed CNN with four “Fake News” awards Wednesday evening. Acosta, who was speaking on a panel organized by Freedom of Press, responded to the news, stating “I would say having been called fake news myself, the president is the king of fake news.”

Earlier in the discussion, Acosta defended against criticism for asking the President if he was a racist in relation to his “sh*thole” remarks.

“God damn it, I’ll say it out loud … it is our right to ask if the president is a racist,” Acosta blurted out.

On November 9, 2016, New York Times economy “guru” Paul Krugman predicted  that the economy would never recover from a Trump election victory.

On Wednesday January 17, 2018, the Trump Economy officially broke EVERY SINGLE DOW MARKET record.

2017: The Year the News Media Went to War Against a President

■ The Trump presidency was the biggest story of the year, accounting for one out of every three minutes of evening news airtime — nearly 100 hours in total.

■ The tone of coverage has been incessantly hostile, especially for a new President in his honeymoon year: 90% negative, vs. just 10% positive (These percentages do not include neutral statements).

■ More than two-fifths of evening news coverage of the President (43%) focused on controversies, not policies, with the Russia investigation alone accounting for one-fifth of all Trump coverage (1,234 minutes).

■ Despite their massive coverage of Russia, the networks had almost no airtime for questions about how the investigation began, or whether special counsel Robert Mueller’s current investigation is biased.

Report: Highest-ever political bias in media, most can’t name ‘objective news source’

Americans see more political bias in news than ever, and nearly seven-in-10 blame media owners for influencing the ways stories are reported, according to the latest failing report card on the nation’s news business.

According to “American Views: Trust, Media and Democracy,” a new report from Gallup and the Knight Foundation, the percentage of Americans who see a great deal of political bias in stories has nearly doubled since 1989.

Sarah Sanders speaks for America on S**tholegate: ‘We’ve wasted five days fighting over one word’

Since that ill-fated remark, it’s been six straight days of high-horse moralizing, virtue signalling, hand-wringing, and bed-wetting from politicians, celebrities, and talking heads eager for America to know just how “morally superior” they are compared to that dastardly man in the White House who dared to say something out loud that everyone knows deep down is true, even if they refuse to admit it.

10 of the Dumbest Questions Reporters Asked During Trump’s Health Press Conference

White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters on Tuesday that President Trump is in “excellent” health and has “no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever.” But that didn’t stop the press corps from asking a lot of really stupid questions. Here’s a sampling.

1. One reporter asked the White House physician how Trump can become as fit as Obama — who struggled to kick a smoking habit. He then proceeded to whine that the press office doesn’t keep a tally of how much time Trump spends on the golf course and asked if Jackson could help them with that.

Leftist Toilet Mouths Condemn Trump as They Corrupt Nation

Let’s be clear: Leftists certainly object to the substance of Trump’s comments, that we shouldn’t continually absorb poor, unskilled, often functionally illiterate and unassimilable people from Third World nations. But they also object to his alleged style, labeling as obscene the use of s***hole (toilet) to describe such places. So to show us how bad such language is, the Crude News Network (CNN), for example, used it at least 36 times on Thursday. It’s sort of like inveighing against animal abuse and then bludgeoning dozens of dogs to death on air to prove your point.

[CtH: This reminds me of something I’ve noticed often in movie and t.v. outtakes. On Christian movie sets, there are no bleeped out (or non-bleeped out) cuss words when people mess up a line. On mainstream movie and t.v. sets, almost everybody seems to punctuate a goof with “f***” or “sh**.”]

Dems Think 800,000 Illegal Immigrants Are Worth Forcing Active Military To Go Without Pay

Congress has three days to strike a deal to keep the government funded through October. If members fail to come to an agreement by Jan. 19, all “non-essential” government employees and active U.S. Military personnel will be working with out pay (including troops currently deployed). Funding for agencies like federal museums or national parks will also be cut off.

Congressional Democrats are apparently content with allowing military and law enforcement personnel to go without pay to secure protections and benefits for illegal immigrants and members of their extended families.

Red-State Democrats Gamble
Importantly, three Democratic officials in states that went heavily for Trump in 2016 — Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill — were all absent. Sens. McCaskill and Manchin said they were not invited to the White House event.

Normally, the lawmakers who represent states that voted for the other party’s presidential nominee are the most bipartisan — even if it’s just to listen. Early on, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Sen. Donnelly hopped on a plane with Trump. But now that they’re in the heat of fundraising, they do not want any part of it.

Democrats Block 2018 Budget, Gain Another Month to Push Amnesty
Late Tuesday, the GOP gave up on 2018 budget talks and drafted a new temporary budget plan, dubbed a Continuing Resolution, which would keep the government open for another month until February 16. That date will mark almost five months after the 2018 budget was slated to begin October 1.

If the CR passes the House and Senate, the GOP and the Democrats will get another month to develop a 2018 budget while Democrats gain another month to wear down GOP and Trump opposition to their amnesty-plus plan.

Don’t fall for Operation Demoralize 2018

The key to Democrat victory in November 2018 is to keep Republican voters home.

WHEN THE DEMOCRATS FLIPPED A REPUBLICAN SEAT IN WISCONSIN LAST WEEK. THE DEMOCRAT TURNOUT WAS 35%… THE REPUBLICAN TURNOUT WAS 12%.

I would not be surprised to see that strategy used more generally against Trump supporting Republicans in the House. And it could be effective. Someone who normally would vote Republican but stays home is as good as a vote for Democrats.

So expect there to be a sustained effort to demoralize Republican voters, Trump supporters, and independents who are willing to vote Republican. That’s part of the reason Democrats and the media have shifted to round-the-clock accusations of racism against Trump.  I have written about this phenomenon in the past. I call it Operation Demoralize.

Trump schools GOP Congress to play hardball

Instead of rolling over for Democrats and virtuously claiming they’ve “reached across the aisle,” as they always have done, Republicans are now playing hardball. They’ve maneuvered to put entitlements and swing state-sensitive tax cuts on the line as bargaining chips to avoid a government shutdown. In doing this, they have just laid out a plan to beat the Democrats at their own game.

Do Democrats really want to face the 18 million parents whose nine million children use the CHIP program to explain that all that could come to an end because of the Democratic Party’s higher priority of amnestying 800,000 DREAMers? Do they really want to face the New England voters in the medical device industry, which has been singled out for punitive Obamacare taxes, or explain themselves to all the union workers set to pay massive Obamacare “Cadillac” taxes just for the “privilege” of having good health care insurance?

Voters don’t actually want Oprah to run for president

“Oprah’s strong standing among Democrats does not translate to a clear interest in her launching a presidential campaign,” said Kyle Dropp, co-founder and chief research officer of Morning Consult. “While 77 percent of Democrats have a favorable opinion of Oprah, only 38 percent say she should run in 2020.”

The “Oprah 2020” rumors were sparked earlier this month following her emotional speech at the Globes, in which she touched upon the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements sweeping the nation recently.

Trump Honors Civil Rights Icon Barbara Jordan ‘Who Called for End to Chain Migration’

“As Chairman of the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform—now called the Jordan Commission in her honor—she stood up to special interests determined to profit politically and financially from our broken immigration system. She remained steadfast in promoting common-sense reforms that would better protect the rights and needs of Americans,” the presidential message stated.

Trump also noted that Jordan “called for an end to chain migration, which has allowed millions upon millions of low-skilled foreign nationals to compete for opportunities and resources against our most vulnerable American citizens—many of whom come from African-American and Hispanic-American communities.”

Grassley under fire for planning vote on 17 judicial nominees

Liberals Furious NHL Picked Trump-Supporter Kid Rock to Perform at All-Star Game

But, as Bucholtz revealed, a list of folks on Twitter were incensed that Rock was chosen to perform at the game; because the Detroit-based singer is a well-known supporter of President Donald Trump and a Republican booster. Kid Rock even briefly contemplated running for the U.S. Senate from Michigan.

But, liberal members of the media attacked the NHL on Twitter calling Kid Rock a “racist” and slamming the league for “going political” with the choice:

President Trump to Address March for Life

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced Wednesday afternoon President Trump will speak to the March for Life in Washington D.C. on Friday. He is the first sitting president to do so. He will address the crowd live through a video conference.

“Since his first day in office, President Trump has remained steadfast on his campaign promises to the pro-life cause and has actively worked to protect the unborn…We welcome our 45th President, Donald Trump, to the 45th annual March for Life,” March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said in a statement.

Judge Upholds Alabama Voter ID Law In Win For Common Sense

A federal judge in Alabama has thrown out a lawsuit against the state’s voter ID law, finding that the law doesn’t prevent anyone from voting because “nearly the entire population of registered voters in Alabama already possess a photo ID that can be used for voting.”

For those who don’t, obtaining a qualifying ID can be done “with little to no effort and no cost.”

OUT!!

It seems like every time the president allows access to the media whores, he knows they’re going to make clowns of themselves. And every time, they oblige. They truly can’t help themselves. Jim Acosta, the pathetic Walter Cronkite wannabe, once again showed himself to be the empty soul, trying desperately to be taken seriously. I think he’d have had his credential pulled long ago if not for the fact Trump likes to mess with him and Sarah Sanders is really good at pimp slapping this little turd.

Pres. Trump to CNN’s Jim Acosta: ‘Out’

The veteran reporter along with other members of the press, were allowed inside the Oval Office during a meeting between Pres. Trump and Nursultan Nazarbayev the president of Kazakhstan.

When White House press aides started asking the press to leave, Acosta, whose contentious relationship with the Trump White House has been well-documented, tried to get in a few final questions.

“Did you say you want more people to come into the country from Norway, Mr. President?” Acosta asked.

“Thank you very much, everyone,” Trump responded.

Acosta asked the question again, to which Trump responded in a lower, softer voice, “I want people to come in from everywhere.”

“Just Caucasian or white countries, sir? Or do you want people to come in from other parts of the world…people of color?” Acosta asked.

The president pointed at Acosta and said: “Out.”

They need to look at revoking the White House press credentials of CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Here’s another installment of, ‘hey everybody, Trump’s a racist’ from our friends at FAKE NEWS CNN.

Disgraceful. And Trump doesn’t want any of it from Acosta

Acosta Suggests WH Doctor Could Be Withholding Information About Trump’s Health

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta asked Physician to the President Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson if he was withholding negative information about the president’s health from reporters during Tuesday’s press briefing.

Jackson assured Acosta that there was no information about Trump’s health being withheld, negative or otherwise.

“I can promise there is nothing that I am withholding from you. I can tell you, I’ve done the last four or five of these,” Jackson replied. “I’ve been involved in probably the last six or seven of these and this is hands down more information that has been put forth by any other assessment to date.”

DHS Secretary Asks to Move on After Four Democrats Ask about Sh**hole Comments

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen expressed a desire to “move forward and discuss ways in which we can protect our country,” during her testimony before the Judiciary Committee Tuesday after being asked for the fourth time about vulgar language reportedly used in an immigration meeting last week with President Trump.

“At any point in that conversation on Thursday did the President of the United States use a four-letter word beginning with s in combination with other words or alone that you heard?” Sen. Blumenthal asked.

“Sir, respectfully, I have answered this,” she replied. “I’ve been very patient with this line of questioning. I’m here to tell you about the threats our country faces and the needs and authorities that are needed by the Department of Homeland Security. I have nothing further to say about a meeting that happened over a week ago. I’d like to move forward and discuss ways in which we can protect our country.”

Democrats: Trump must capitulate on DACA “to prove you’re not prejudiced or bigoted”

Trump denied using the term, and is backed up by Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who were at the same meeting and dispute Durbin’s account.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was at that meeting also. She testified today before a Senate committee which included Durbin.

Durbin fell flat on his face when Nielsen testified she did not remember Trump using the “s***hole” word during the meeting, and that Trump did not have a “specific categorization of countries in Africa.”

NJ Senator Cory Booker then went ballistic, berating Nielsen and accusing her of lying, your “silence and amnesia is complicit.”

The questioning of Nielsen, and Booker’s theatrics, are part of a concerted Democrat effort to turn DACA into a racial issue if Democrats don’t get their way.

It’s all a charade that was laid bare by Chuck Schumer today, who demanded Trump get on board Democrat DACA demands or be labeled a racist:

“If you want to begin the long road back to prove you’re not prejudiced or bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise … One that was aimed at meeting the concerns you voiced,” Schumer said, noting it was negotiated by three Republicans and three Democrats. “This may be the last train leaving the station. President Trump needs to get on board.”

HOW IS THIS NOT A THREAT?

This was a line of attack also used by Durbin:

Cory Booker ‘seething with anger’ as he yells at DHS chief Kirstjen Nielsen

“I had tears of rage,” Booker bellowed at Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in reference to when he first heard of Trump’s “shithole countries” remark last week.

“And for you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss the questions of my colleagues, with tens of millions Americans hurting right now because they’re worried about what happened in the White House …”

Journos Unable To Accept Results Of Trump’s Physical Exam

Journalists have long questioned the president’s mental health and fitness for office, but Dr. Jackson debunked any notion that Trump is unhealthy and called his mental health “excellent.”

However, reporters are still unwilling to accept that nothing is wrong with the president and have taken to Twitter to express their displeasure with Dr. Jackson’s assessment of Trump.

CNN’s Brian Stelter, who routinely talks about Trump’s fitness, wrote that Trump passing a cognitive exam has nothing to do with being “unfit.”

“Someone could be sharp as a tack, but still unfit,” Stelter claimed.

AP Reporter Asks Trump Doctor “Do You Have a Life Expectancy Based On Your Results?”

Presidential Doctor Ronny Jackson took questions from the White House press corps after detailing President Trump’s excellent health.

AP reporter Jill Colvin bizarrely asked Dr. Jackson “Do you have a life expectancy based on your results?”
Cristina Laila reported, Dr. Ronny Jackson conducted a physical exam on the President and declared Trump to have excellent cognitive health and attributed it to incredible genes “it’s just the way God made him”.

MSNBC’s Mika Wants ‘Small Crowd’ For Trump’s State Of The Union

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said that those who disagree with President Donald Trump should “give him a small crowd” at the upcoming State of the Union address.

“I really feel that Democrats and any Republicans with a spine who actually believe that this president is lying and perhaps acting in a way that is bad for this country should not show up for the State of the Union, and some are speaking about that. Give him a small crowd,” retorted Brezinski.

[CtH: It should be remembered that, during his time in office, President Lincoln was reviled by the Democrats, half the Republicans, and a lot of the media.]

That’s not a joke, the Radio Television Digital News Foundation (RTDNF) will actually be honoring the Morning Joe co-hosts during the organization’s annual First Amendment Awards dinner on March 8 in Washington, D.C.The couple will specifically receive the Leonard Zeidenberg First Amendment Award for “a radio or television journalist or news executive who has made a major contribution to the protection of First Amendment freedoms.”

DC Mayor Addresses How High School Grads All Got Diplomas Without Meeting Requirements
 An investigation by WAMU and NPR has found that Ballou High School’s administration graduated dozens of students despite high rates of unexcused absences. We reviewed hundreds of pages of Ballou’s attendance records, class rosters and emails after a district employee shared the private documents. Half of the graduates missed more than three months of school last year, unexcused. One in five students was absent more than present — missing more than 90 days of school.

To add insult to injury, the majority of Ballou’s 2017 graduates missed more than six weeks of school. One teacher recalls seeing kids in the 12th grade that couldn’t read and write.

Local viewers were skeptical and blasted the school system and D.C. leadership in the comment section.

“Dr. Reeves should be prosecuted,” one commenter said.

“Revoke every diploma of every student who failed to meet grad requirements,” another wrote. “Otherwise this is a cruel joke that will have a lasting impact on every DCPS graduate.”

40 Percent Of Kids Now Born To Single Moms—Up 700 Percent Since 1960

A recent report from the Social Capital Project reveals that the American family is disintegrating, fast. Fully 40 percent of mothers are currently unmarried.
This is partly due to the increasing acceptance in out-of-wedlock births. But, as the authors point out, this rise has a few more concrete explanations, such as: increased unwed promiscuity, fewer “shotgun marriages” to pregnant single women, and increasing delayed marriage/rising divorce.

Dems flip Wisconsin state Senate seat
IT SEEMS LIKE THE REPUBLICANS ARE TRYING TO LOSE THE MAJORITY…IT’S TOO HARD.

Democrats have expressed optimism heading into November’s midterm elections in the wake of successful campaigns at the state and local level.

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee touted Schachtner’s win as the 34th district to flip from Republican-held to Democrat-held since President Trump was inaugurated a year ago.

Democrats won governor races in New Jersey and Virginia, a special U.S. Senate election in Alabama and several other state races late last year.

AZ Sen candidate: Your “clean DACA bill” isn’t happening
McSALLY IS A FORMER FIGHTER PILOT RUNNING FOR FLAKE’S SENATE SEAT

Major news outlets are already sounding the alarm about a possible government shutdown, assuming that a “clean” DACA bill is the hill that Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi want to die on this week.

This seems particularly true of Arizona Congresswoman (and newly announced Senate candidate) Martha McSally. She was making the rounds on cable news this week, letting the minority party know that they need to pack the “clean” bill idea away because it’s not gonna happen.

Fox News tweeted the video of that exchange for everyone yesterday.

This wasn’t a particularly new position for McSally, who has been solid on immigration issues from the beginning. She was also out with a similar warning during an interview last week, when it might have actually done some good had the Democrats been listening.

Kris Kobach: Voter Fraud Commission ‘Being Handed Off’ to DHS, Will No Longer Be ‘Stonewalled’ by Dems
DON’T EXPECT MUCH TO COME OF THIS. FRAUD IS NEVER REVEALED UNTIL AFTER AN ELECTION WHEN NOTHING CAN BE DONE ABOUT IT. DEMOCRATS HAVE BEEN USING THIS FOR DECADES TO TIP ELECTIONS, GOING BACK AT LEAST AS FAR AS THE 1960 NIXON-KENNEDY CONTEST WHEN MAYOR DALEY HELD BACK THE VOTE TOTALS FROM CHICAGO. KENNEDY WAS GIVEN ENOUGH ‘DEAD’ VOTES TO WIN THE PRESIDENCY. THEY CAN’T WIN WITHOUT CHEATING AND THEY KNOW IT.
In an interview with Breitbart News, Kobach said the news that President Trump is dissolving the voter fraud commission should not be grounds for leftist organizations and Democrats — who sought to stop the investigations into double voting and ballots cast by non-citizens — to celebrate, as the investigations will continue under DHS.
“What’s happening is a tactical shift where the mission of the commission is being handed off to Homeland Security without the stonewalling by Democrats,” Kobach told Breitbart News.

Rather than carping about Perry’s energy plans, perhaps these critics should take a trip up to Vermont this weekend when the temperature is expected to hit negative 10 without the wind chill. Take a look at their power grid and then tell us how we need to all be converting to wind and solar. You’re putting people at serious risk if we cripple the power grid and we need to come to grips with that reality.

A new book from one of his former Secret Service officers claims that Bill Clinton often snuck away from his wife and out of the White House to cozy up with “well-known and lesser-known mistresses,” and that a Secret Service officer in the motorcade was nearly killed in a crash during one secret escape.
Gary J. Byrne, a former Uniform Division officer at the center of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, writes in his latest book, Secrets of the Secret Service: The History and Uncertain Future of the U.S. Secret Service, that Clinton demanded a tiny motorcade to secretly dash around Washington unnoticed, ordering that the cars try to obey laws like stopped lights.

Weak Sessions Declares War on Legal Pot – But Allows Mueller’s Witch Hunt to Destroy POTUS Trump to Continue
Jason Chaffetz: Some people suggested there be a second special counsel. How’s that first one working out? I wouldn’t do a second one. I really do believe that it’s time for Attorney General Sessions to go. I don’t think he’s up for the job. Every time I see him he looks like he’s some prisoner. And the only reason we have a special counsel is because we have an Attorney General who can’t do his job.

Maxine Waters wrote a poem about Robert Mueller sending Trump officials to jail
WHO WROTE THIS CRAP? A 9 YEAR OLD?
Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., on Wednesday tweeted a poem about special counsel Robert Mueller jailing members of the Trump campaign.
“A message to Mueller: Stay strong and stand tall. Continue to investigate them all. You are indeed answering the people’s call. The Kremlin Klan is going to fall. Around you the Democrats are building a wall. We look forward to the day, to prison they will all be hauled,” the California Democrat said on Twitter Wednesday afternoon

Ellison Embraces Antifa Violence Against Trump
Muslim Brotherhood Congressman goes all-in against the administration
Ellison, an in-your-face Muslim sympathetic to jihad, implicitly expressed support for the use of violence against President Trump in a tweet as he posed for a selfie with the cover of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, by Mark Bray.
Ellison’s embrace of Antifa runs counter to statements House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made in August last year during a spate of Antifa violence in her home state.
“Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts,” Pelosi said. “The violent actions of people calling themselves Antifa in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.”

Pro-life Pregnancy Center Files HHS Complaint Over Illinois Law that Requires Them to Promote Abortion
In the complaint, the groups argue that the new requirements violate existing federal law including the Hyde-Weldon Amendment which forbids state and local governments from discriminating against healthcare providers based on their refusal to “provide, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for” abortions.
They argue that the law also specifically targets pro-life healthcare providers and infringes on their First Amendment rights to free speech and free exercise of religion.

JFK’s Nephew Says Rahm Emanuel Plans To Kick Black People Out Of Chicago
Chris Kennedy, a Democratic Illinois gubernatorial candidate and nephew of former President John F. Kennedy, claimed on Thursday that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a plan to kick African-Americans out of the city on Thursday.
“I believe that black people are being pushed out of Chicago intentionally by a strategy that involves disinvestment in communities being implemented by the city administration. I believe Rahm Emanuel is the head of the city administration and therefore needs to be held responsible for those outcomes,”

Convicted felon announces campaign for governor in Democratic state – sounds about right
 Joe Ganim, 58, filed the necessary paperwork to run for governor at the State Elections Enforcement Commission office in Hartford, Conn., joining a number of other Democratic candidates who have expressed interest in running for current Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy’s spot, who said in April that he would not seek re-election.
Ganim was convicted of 16 federal corruption charges in 2003 while serving as mayor and was sentenced to nine years in prison. After serving almost seven years, Ganim was released.

NY’s Cuomo Will File Lawsuit Against GOP Tax Bill, Says It Wages Economic Civil War Against Blue States
STATES LIKE NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY, AND CALIFORNIA HAVE BEEN SOAKING PEOPLE WITH ENORMOUS TAXES FOR DECADES. SINCE THEY GOT TO WRITE IT ALL OFF ON THEIR IRS RETURNS, THEY DIDN’T SQUAWK TOO MUCH. NOW THAT THE TAX CUT HAS PUT A CAP ON THE AMOUNT THEY CAN DEDUCT, PEOPLE ARE REALIZING HOW BADLY THEY’VE BEEN GETTING SCREWED.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is not a fan of the GOP’s tax bill that was signed into law on December 22. He likened it to economic civil war. He pretty much said that it robs blue states to help finance tax cuts in red states. Oh, and it’s the most partisan legislation he’s ever seen. He also argued that it would make it harder to New York to attract businesses
Prior to the New Year, Cuomo went on CNN and told host Alisyn Camerota that this bill is nothing short of economic civil war against blue states

Planned Parenthood enters transgender-hormone market as abortions decline, clinics close
The 2016-17 Planned Parenthood annual report showed the nation’s largest abortion provider struggling to keep its doors open as fewer women undergo abortions and patients seek health care services elsewhere.
In response, “We’re expanding access to care — from pioneering research on self-injectable birth control to offering new services for our transgender patients,” Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards said in the report’s introductory message.
“Planned Parenthood has focused on expanding services to people who are too often overlooked by the larger medical community — including trans patients,” says the report, released Sunday. “17 states now have Planned Parenthood health centers that provide hormone therapy.”

The Post Christmas Letdown

Children anxiously await the day for months. Weeks of shopping, cleaning, decorating, wrapping, and cooking. In a half hour, it’s over. There’s New Years Eve, if you’re into partying, and New Years Day for parades and football games. After that comes 3 or 4 months of vast, empty wasteland.

It was -2 degrees when I went to deliver my papers this morning. In a previous life, I’d go to work with a truck with a diesel engine frozen solid and a cab that never got warm. The wet floor mats I changed would stick to the floor making it sooo much fun to unload. Those times are, thankfully, in my rear view mirror.

We have a mixed bag today, since I’m a little sluggish from overeating with family and friends yesterday. For having beautiful grandchildren and a wife who can cook, it’s a price I’m glad to pay.

Fears the royal couple will snub the new President in favour of the predecessor he hates.

  • Officials fear a royal wedding invite could be seen as a snub to President Trump
  • Prince Harry and Barack Obama have a close relationship and are firm friends
  • Mr Obama will appear on the Today show tomorrow presented by Prince Harry
  • Mr Obama tweeted his congratulations to the prince and Meghan Markle

Where’s the party? No state dinner in Trump’s first year.
Trump spoke dismissively of state dinners as a candidate, when he panned President Barack Obama’s decision to welcome Chinese President Xi Jinping with a 2015 state visit. Such visits are an important diplomatic tool that includes a showy arrival ceremony and an elaborate dinner at the White House.

“I would not be throwing (Xi) a dinner,” Trump said at the time. “I would get him a McDonald’s hamburger and say we’ve got to get down to work.”

Trump Takes a Lesson from Winston Churchill

On December 18, President Trump invited lawmakers to the White House for a screening of Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill. Such a screening would never have happened under the previous president.

On his first day in office, POTUS 44 removed a bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and returned it to Britain. When the eviction made news, White House mouthpiece Dan Pfeiffer said the story was “100 per cent false.”

But as the Telegraph reported, long after the denial, “Barack Obama’s White House has been forced to admit that it did return a bust of Sir Winston Churchill to British diplomats.”

This move has roots in the president’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, who shows up as the beloved “Frank” in Dreams from My Father.

Year One List: 81 major Trump achievements, 11 Obama legacy items repealed

With the passage of the GOP tax bill this week, the Trump administration has scored 81 major achievements in its first year, making good on campaign promises to provide significant tax cuts, boost U.S. energy production, and restore respect to the United States, according to the White House.

And along the way, President Trump even outdid his own expectations and slashed at least 11 major legacy items of former President Barack Obama, including cracking down on the open border, slowing recognition of communist Cuba and effectively killing Obamacare by ending the mandate that everyone have health insurance or face a tax.

Now the left is angry about ‘pro-Trump’ year-end bonuses
Boy, are they annoyed: Democrats are pooh-poohing the avalanche of announcements by major corporations that they’re giving their workers bonuses and raising wages after the passage of tax reform

Buoyed by Alabama win, Democrats eye Tennessee Senate race
THE DEMOCRATS/McCONNELL SPENT $100 MILLION AND THE MEDIA WHORES SPENT 6 WEEKS BUYING WOMEN TO TRASH JUDGE MOORE.  THEY REMIND ME OF THE UNDERDOG WHO GETS IN A LUCKY SHOT AND KNOCKS DOWN THE CHAMP. THEN THEY THINK THEY’RE 10 FEET HIGH AND BULLETPROOF.

[CtH: And they didn’t beat Moore by much.  They’re delusional if they think they can pull off that kind of effort throughout 50 states!]

Neither of Tennessee’s two top GOP candidates, Rep. Marsha Blackburn and former Rep. Stephen Fincher, has the kind of personal baggage Republican Roy Moore had in the Alabama race won by a Democrat. But both have wholeheartedly embraced President Donald Trump at what Democrats hope is exactly the wrong time.

Former Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen, a known quantity in Tennessee, has kicked off his Senate run from a position of strength.

“He starts with credibility among Tennesseans that Doug Jones didn’t have or almost no Democratic challenger in any of the other Republican states would have next year,” Maslin said.

Gentlemen, Start Your Engines for 2018 Midterms

Liberals really do live on another planet. The corporate tax cut was not intended as some cheap way to win votes or to benefit employees and voters in the here and now. It is simply an effort to lower the tax rate on corporate income down to generally accepted international levels approved by all card-carrying globalists.

Really, you couldn’t choose a better setup for the 2018 midterms. The Democrats get to wail about Russia collusion and Republicans stealing the silver and #MeToo and gay wedding cakes. Republicans get to talk about middle-class tax cuts and 4 percent growth. Remember the days when Dick Morris taught Bill Clinton to strike terror into Republican hearts with their centrist triangulation between left and right? Today’s Democrats don’t know nothin’ about such pranks.

Detroit Christmas Toy Giveaway Devolves into Massive Brawl

A Christmas toy giveaway in Detroit, Michigan, devolved into a massive brawl Saturday night, leading to the arrest of one woman, police said.

Police said they arrested a 39-year-old woman for allegedly threatening a 30-year-old woman at knifepoint while inside the building. The 30-year-old victim did not suffer any injuries.

Police say the suspect had been accompanied by her two children when the brawl took place.

Chelsea Clinton, bird-dogging for Momma Clinton

Chelsea Clinton’s back in the news, this time for a public letter to her toddlers full of drool and glurge “about our country’s future, about your future.” Apparently, she takes us for idiots. Because this confection, published in the anal penetration for teens-advocating Teen Vogue, is about as transparently cynical as such letters come.

I suppose if you live in the White House amid round-the-clock maid service and Secret Service protection to keep the riff-raff and “deplorables” away, it probably does make a difference in your personal experience. But that sure as heck resonates like a clank on the floor at a ballet performance.

Democratic Congressional Candidate Indicted in $803,000 Fraud, Embezzlement Case

A Democratic congressional candidate in Virginia has been indicted on charges of fraud, embezzlement, and theft for allegedly stealing government funds from a school nutrition program in 2012.

Shaun Brown, 58, denied any wrongdoing during her first appearance in a Norfolk courtroom last week and said after the hearing that she intends to fight the charges.
Prosecutors said Brown fraudulently obtained $803,000 of government funds through her nonprofit organization, which participated in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Program. The organization worked with the USDA Summer Food Service Program to provide meals to low-income children on school breaks.

Trump UNLEASHES Over Report Suggesting Fusion GPS Dossier Triggered Surveillance

WOW, @foxandfrlends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.” And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!, tweeted President Trump Tuesday.

On Saturday, Trump went scorched earth on McCabe for his corruption and obvious conflicts of interest during the Hillary Clinton email investigation:

According to WaPo: McCabe is retiring in just the right time to collect his pension:
Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s deputy director who has been the target of Republican critics for more than a year, plans to retire in a few months when he becomes fully eligible for pension benefits, according to people familiar with the matter. […] McCabe won’t become eligible for his full pension until early March. People close to him say he plans to retire as soon as he hits that mark. “He’s got about 90 days, and some of that will be holiday time. He can make it,’’ said one.

Alabama Voter Fraud?

2016 Voter fraud toon by Branco

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill has decided to launch an investigation into possible voter fraud in last week’s Senate special election that saw Democrat Doug Jones defeat Republican Roy Moore.

The decision came after an interview with a person on FOX10, in which a jubilant Jones supporter told a reporter, “We came here all the way from different parts of the country as part of our fellowship, and all of us pitched in to vote and canvas together, and we got our boy elected!”

SOS Merrill said he is trying to find out who the man is, and if he really meant what he said, or if he only misspoke.

Maybe this is why

Lisa Bloom Victims4Hire

Maybe this is why Doug Jones, the Dem who beat Roy Moore, is telling Democrats to lay off on the sexual abuse allegations against President Trump.

The Hill reports that Lisa Bloom promised women seriously big bucks if they would go public with claims that President Trump sexually harassed them in the waning months of the 2016 presidential election.

  • The Hill says the claims are backed up by contractual documents, emails and text messages.
  • Bloom has admitted that “donors reached out to my firm directly to help some of the women I represented.”

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

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.

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

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.
