Not much sleep; doing what I can before nap time.

I WAS LOOKING THOUGH SOME OLD TOY WEBSITES LAST NIGHT AND I CAME ACROSS THIS AD FOR FIREARMS.
LOOK FAMILIAR? YUP, IT’S OLD DIANE FIENSTEIN HERSELF, PROBABLY FROM THE 50s, SINCE THE AD HAD AN ADDRESS WITH NO ZIP CODE.

bluebird of bitterness adds: The above is a photoshop. Here is the original:

The Creeps in Hillary Clinton’s Corner
Grant Stinchfield tells Hillary Clinton What Happened: “Hillary, you’ve spent your entire career surrounded by creeps. Never once did you tell them to get away from you. But here’s the real reason why you wanted to tell President Trump to ‘back up.’ It’s because you hate the people he speaks for—the miners you wanted to put out of business, the gun owners, the church goers, the union families, the factory workers, the people you called deplorables…For three decades, you used creeps to prop you up all in a condescending effort to look down on all of us. Now you’re nothing but a two-time loser who can’t stop whining, and my prediction is your book will be a flop because America already knows exactly what happened.”

The party’s over: Republicans and Democrats are both finished
We all know just how loudly and angrily the left has been reacting to President Trump in general. But in case there’s any doubt about how the partisan right is responding to the Trump team’s moves lately, there shouldn’t be. They’re infuriated. But there’s also seems to be an understanding that there’s little they can do about it.
Somewhere, George Washington’s ghost must be smiling wide with those wooden teeth of his. It was Washington who warned against the formation of political parties and urged the nation to choose leaders for reasons that transcended partisan politics.

Hillary Clinton: Time to abolish the Electoral College
POINT ONE: IF NOT FOR THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, NEW YORK AND CALIFORNIA WOULD CHOOSE OUR LEADERS PERENNIALLY
POINT TWO: YOU WON THE POPULAR VOTE BY 3 MILLION ALL RIGHT… WITH 5 MILLION ILLEGAL VOTES
Clinton won the 2016 popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, a fact she routinely brings up in her new memoir. But Trump won the Electoral College, a body of 538 members who select the president based on the popular vote in each state, meaning the person who gets the most votes nationally doesn’t necessarily win the election.

Defiant Hillary To Dems: ‘I’m Not Going Anywhere’
“Well, they don’t have to buy my book, and they can turn off the radio when they hear me talking. I’m not going anywhere,” Clinton said. “I have the experience, I have the insight, I have the scars that I think give me not only the right, but the responsibility to speak out. And 2018 is going to be incredibly momentous. We have a chance I won 24 congressional districts that have a Republican member of Congress sitting in them.”

Trump Sets The Record Straight: “If We Don’t Have The Wall, We’re Doing Nothing”
The Trump administration may very well demand border wall funding be included in a deal with DACA, as TGP reported last night, Speaker Ryan believes support for it is slim to none.

9 Lies About DACA Trump Is Buying Into

Via Twitter, Trump praised the almost 800,000 illegal alien recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, saying they are “good, educated and accomplished young people,” but failing to mention some of the key points on the issue that he often brought to light during the 2016 presidential election.
Now, Trump seems to be buying into a handful of untruths about DACA, amnesty for illegal aliens and his working-class, middle-class voter base.

April Ryan Loses It Over Don Lemon Admitting Hillary Made Mistakes Costing Her the Election
On Wednesday’s CNN Tonight, host Don Lemon took the extraordinary step of conceding that Hillary Clinton made mistakes during the election that she won’t acknowledge, but it didn’t sit well with CNN political analyst and American Urban Radio Networks White House correspondent April Ryan as she vehemently defended Clinton.

The New Obama… with Ovaries

Now comes Kamala Harris, Californicate’s latest in a long line of liberal lunatics. She was the attorney general who was locked in a bitter primary with fake Mexican Loretta Sanchez until the Magic Negro endorsed her. The homeys always obeyed their Messiah. Surprisingly, I wasn’t aware she’s actually East Indian. Ask 98.5% of Cali’s socialist guerillas and they’ll claim she be black.
She rode into town with a hyper-democrat attitude. She aimed to show the world she’s a mean, nasty, rude, foul-mouthed tramp who intends to be the next Barack Obama by being the meanest dog in the pound.

President Kamala Harris? She’s making the first moves
LOS ANGELES —Now’s the time prospective presidential candidates start taking the subtle but crucial behind-the-scenes steps that get them noticed by the political intelligentsia, and Sen. Kamala Harris is quietly following the script.
She’s making speeches to key national constituencies. She’s due for an appearance at a Washington think-tank panel full of chattering-class presidential favorites that the national media will be reporting and analyzing, probably for days. She’s been fundraising for colleagues and making sure that she is forming relationships with key national reporters.

Freshperson senator Kamala Harris grills CIA nominee over … wait for it … climate change

At a confirmation hearing for President-elect Donald Trump’s CIA director nominee, newly minted Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) focused on what’s really important in the world of intelligence gathering: global warming.

“In the past you have questioned the scientific consensus on climate change,” Harris asked CIA nominee Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas).

“Nevertheless according to NASA, multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, 97% or more of actively published climate scientists agree that climate warming trends of the past century are extremely likely due to human activities… Do you have any reason to doubt NASA’s findings?”

It’s time to build the wall — around California.

SHE DEMONSTRATED EARLY ON THAT WHEN SHE DID HER ACT SHE WOULD NOT ALLOW HER VICTIMS TIME TO ANSWER A QUESTION WITHOUT INCESSANT BADGERING.

Kamala Harris Twice Paid Tens of Thousands to Appear on Waters Endorsement Mailers
Harris’ campaigns have paid a total of $63,000 to the Waters campaignCampaign committees for Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) twice paid tens of thousands to campaign committees for Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.) in exchange for placement on a mailer announcing Waters’s endorsement of Harris, according to Federal Election Commission records.
Harris—who has garnered media attention and earned speculation that she is positioning herself to run for president in 2020 following her performance during recent Senate hearings, including that of former FBI Director James Comey—has kicked $63,000 to the campaign of Maxine Waters, the congressional face of the anti-Trump movement, in exchange for placement on the endorsement mailers.

TELL THEM HOMEYS I’M YOUR GIRL… I’LL PAY YOU!!
The mailers list the candidates endorsed by Waters and is sent to the more than 200,000 constituents in South Central Los Angeles area, where the congresswoman holds considerable clout. The mailers contain an “official sample ballot” with brief quotes from the congresswoman.
The operation is run by Karen Waters, the daughter of Rep. Waters, who has collected more than $650,000 to date for running the endorsement mailers. Karen is owed another $108,000 from her mother’s campaign committee, according to its most recent records. Once Karen is paid, her total payments will reach more than $750,000 since 2006.

What Clinton Won

The Left never tires of telling us that Hillary won the popular vote.  “The majority wanted Clinton!”  Blah blah blah. 

  • She knew that presidential elections are decided by the electoral vote the whole time she was campaigning.  She LOST the electoral vote.  Period. 
  • Then she lost when the recount effort failed, again when the corrupt electors effort failed, and again when the make Congress debate every vote effort failed.

She also lost in all the swing states, which means her much-touted popular vote win occurred ONLY in states that were already blue.

2016-prez-wins-by-county

That’s a lot of losing for someone who was allegedly the more popular candidate.

2016-counties-won

She did win 2.9 million more votes than Trump.  

hillary-won-pop-vote

But let’s look at that number more closely.

  • She won California by 4.3 million votes.  Deep blue Los Angeles has a population of approximately ten million and 4.3 isn’t even half of that.
  • She won New York by 1.7 million votes.  Deep Blue New York City has a population of 8.4 million.  1.7 is about 20% of that.
  • When you add California’s 4.3 million to New York’s 1.7, you get 6 million.  But Hillary won the overall popular vote by only 2.9 million, which is a little less than half.

So, again, I say … Hillary won the popular vote.  Blah, blah, blah.

Winning vs. Whining

winning-v-whining

Some House Democrats and progressive groups are considering a challenge to Donald Trump’s election at Friday’s joint session to certify the Electoral College tally.

Members are allowed to protest when Congress officially counts the electoral votes, but they would need the support of at least one senator to make an impact and none have stepped forward.

While there’s almost no chance of changing the outcome, a two-chamber challenge could delay certification by forcing the House and Senate to separately debate each protested Electoral College vote.

Electors only “act by authority of the state.”

The guest on this Tucker Carlson video says the Constitution gives electors the right to vote their conscience.  He’s 100% wrong.

Law Newz explains:

“In the seminal decision of Ray v. Blair, the Supreme Court made clear electors act at the privilege of the state that empowers them, and do NOT enjoy any special right to vote as they please.

“Article II, section 1 of the Constitution gives states the rights to select their electors as they please, including a right to require party and candidate loyalty.”

Trump wins (again)

Today, Donald Trump obtained the required 270 electoral votes to become president.  The next, and last, official step in the electoral process is for Congress to count the votes on January 6.

Twitchy collected some of the leftist whining (see link below).  Funny thing here.  THEY made the electoral college vote a big deal, so they’ve got no one but themselves to blame for their having this second terrible, awful, no good, really bad day.  I don’t remember ever noticing before that that the electoral college vote even happened.

Tucker Carlson on attempts to hijack electoral vote

Tucker Carlson Tonight: Political observations from La-La Land.

“Having an unqualified person in the Oval Office is a cause for concern.”  Yeah, a lot of us have been concerned about this for the past 8 years.

Tucker Carlson Tonight:  Because nothing says unity like an Electoral College coup.

“We’re trying to unite the country!”  This only makes sense inside the black hole that is the Liberal Mind, where things like “unite” and “bipartisan” actually mean “We get what we want and right-wingers don’t.”

This is nothing new. Remember back in October 2010 when Obama said Democrats were in the driver’s seat now. “We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.”

It’s Official… It’s Rex Tillerson

I don’t know much about him, but what I’ve seen so far leads to mixed emotions. As the CEO of the largest corporation in the world, Exxon Mobil, he’s dealt with all the oil-producing countries and has a relationship with Russian strongman Vlad Putin. His confirmation is sure to be a pier 6 brawl, although Trump will get what he wants in the end.

Rex Tillerson, Exxon C.E.O., Chosen as Secretary of State
A statement from Mr. Trump’s transition office early Tuesday brought to an end his public and chaotic deliberations over the nation’s top diplomat — a process that at times veered from rewarding Rudolph W. Giuliani, one of his most loyal supporters, to musing about whether Mitt Romney, one of his most vicious critics, might be forgiven.
Instead, Mr. Trump has decided to risk what looks to be a bruising confirmation fight in the Senate.

Exxon’s Rex Tillerson: 5 Things to Know About Trump’s Likely Secretary of State
Here are five thing about the 64-year-old man who is likely to be America’s top diplomat.
1. Tillerson has close ties with Vladimir Putin.
2. Tillerson spoke against sanctions on Russia.
Speaking about sanctions imposed over Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Tillerson said he generally opposes sanctions as imprecise and ineffective, and added he had discussed his view with U.S. officials, according to The Associated Press.
3. Tillerson supported global emissions-cutting agreement forged in 2015 Paris climate summit.
Tiller acknowledged the threat of climate change and the company he heads endorsed a carbon tax and stated its support for the Paris climate agreement.
4. Tillerson supported the Boy Scouts admitting gay youths.
After the Boy Scouts of America voted to allow openly gay youths to join their troops and earn their merit badges, Eagle Scout Tillerson said at the organization’s national meeting in 2014: “So we’ve made the decision we’re going to change. Now what? No winners or losers. After we make the decision to change, it’s the mission,” according to The Dallas Morning News.
5. TIllerson has contributed to several Republican campaigns.
According to the Federal Election Commission records, Tillerson has given $442,284 as direct contributions since 2003, $72,200 as “joint fundraising contributions” and $5000 to a Super PAC. While he has contributed to George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell and Jeb Bush, he is not known to have given any money to Trump’s campaign.

McConnell, Warning of ‘Dangerous’ Debt, Wants Tax Cut Offsets
Senate leader also opposes $1 trillion infrastructure stimulus
Deficit hawks have warned Trump’s proposals would add to debt
THIS IS AS EXPECTED AS IT IS APPALLING. JUST WHERE THE HELL WERE THESE “DEFICIT HAWKS” WHILE OBAMA WAS RUNNING UP 9 TRILLION IN DEBT??
THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT THE MACK DADDIES, McCONNELL AND McCAIN AND THEIR LITTLE STOOGE PAUL RYAN RESENT A BILLIONAIRE OUTSIDER CRASHING THEIR LITTLE CLIQUE IN D.C. THEY’RE GOING TO FIGHT HIM EVERY INCH OF THE WAY, PUBLIC GOOD BE DAMNED.
President-elect Donald Trump’s race to enact the biggest tax cuts since the 1980s went under a caution flag Monday as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned he considers current levels of U.S. debt “dangerous” and said he wants any tax overhaul to avoid adding to the deficit.

Senior Republicans Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan say they will back the intelligence agencies after Trump slammed the CIA’s claim that Russia’s hacking helped him win the election
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan both had supportive words for the intelligence agencies
Comes after the CIA concluded that Russia wanted Trump to win the election
McConnell said he had the ‘highest confidence’ in the CIA’s findings
Ryan threw his support behind a further probe and said intelligent agencies were ‘working diligently’ to protect the country from foreign cyberattacks

Obama to Trump: Executive Action Is Good for Me, Bad for Thee

“I have not changed Washington the way I wanted to change it,” Obama said in an interview last week with VICE. “And what I worry about in our politics is people getting impatient with the slowness of democracy, and the less effective Congress works, the more likely people are to start giving up on the core values and basic institutions that have helped us to weather a lot of storms.”

Trump packs trade team with veterans of steel wars with China
President-elect Donald Trump is stacking his trade transition team with veterans of the U.S. steel industry’s battles with China, signaling a potentially more aggressive approach to U.S. complaints of unfair Chinese subsidies for its exports and barriers to imports.
Led by Wilbur Ross, a billionaire steel investor and Trump’s nominee for commerce secretary, Dan DiMicco, the former CEO of steelmaker Nucor Corp, and three veteran steel trade lawyers, the team is expected to help shift the U.S. trade focus more heavily toward enforcement actions aimed at bringing down a chronic U.S. trade deficit, Washington trade experts said.

Inauguration blues: Why pop stars won’t play for Trump
Reports from the US suggest Donald Trump is struggling to find A-list stars to perform at his inauguration. We asked the stars of the BBC Music Awards what it would take to get them to play.
When President Barack Obama was inaugurated in 2009, he was serenaded by Beyonce and Aretha Franklin.
During his stay in the White House, he’s had audiences with the likes of Rihanna, James Taylor and Kendrick Lamar.
Donald Trump might not be so lucky.
KEEP IN MIND, MOST OF THESE PEOPLE NEVER FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL, HAVE MARGINAL TALENT, AND HAVE MINIONS HANGING ON TO INFLATE THEIR EGOS. I DOUBT THE DONALD MUCH CARES ABOUT WHAT THESE JADED ASSCLOWNS THINK.
UNCLE TED, KID ROCK, BILLY RAY, MY PERSONAL FAVORITE WOULD BE CHARLIE DANIELS. I COULD LIVE WITH THAT.

Judge says electors must vote for statewide winner
BUMMER, DUDE! JUDGE SAYS YOU HAVE TO OBEY THE LAW!
U.S. District Judge Wiley Daniel denied a request by two Colorado electors who contended that the law binding their vote to Colorado vote winner Hillary Clinton violated their First Amendment rights and the intents of the Constitution’s framers. The electors had sought the right to vote for someone other than Clinton in order to unite behind a consensus Republican other than Trump when the Electoral College convenes on Dec. 19.

Obama on Comedy Central: America ‘by No Means’ Has Overcome ‘Legacies of Slavery, Jim Crow, Colonialism, Racism’
I HAD A RATHER HEATED ARGUMENT WITH MY FRIEND WILLIE TODAY ABOUT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION. HE SWEARS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AND EVERYTHING OBAMA GOT HE ACCOMPLISHED STRICTLY ON HIS OWN MERITS. IT’S A FOOL’S ERRAND TRYING TO REASON WITH SOME PEOPLE.
‘We have, by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism’
“You know, my general theory is that, if I was clear in my own mind about who I was, comfortable in my own skin, and had clarity about the way in which race continues to be this powerful factor in so many elements of our lives,” Obama said. “But that it is not the only factor in so many aspects of our lives, that we have, by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism, but that the progress we’ve made has been real and extraordinary, if I’m communicating my genuine belief that those who are not subject to racism can sometimes have blind spots or lack of appreciation of what it feels to be on the receiving end of that, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not open to learning and caring about equality and justice and that I can win them over because there is goodness in the majority of people.”
