Table Scraps

I decided to do another post because I didn’t feel like going through the contortions necessary to post images in the comment section.

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.

New England wanted to use all renewable energy… then it got cold

‘GREEN’ ENERGY DON’T MEAN MUCH WHEN THE LANDSCAPE TURNS WHITE.
THIS IS VERMONT. WONDER WHAT BERNIE WARMS HIS MANSIONS WITH?
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.

Book: Clinton took secret trips outside White House to visit girlfriends
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

Unhinged Gasbag Joy Behar: “Trump Is Going to Kill All of Us… So That He and His Stupid Sons Don’t Have to Go to Jail”
Joy Behar: He needs to be medicated and hospitalized at this point or he is going to just kill all of us. You know, and my feeling is that probably they are getting closer to him in the Mueller investigation. And that’s what this is about, a lot of it. He’s going to blow the whole world up so that he and his stupid sons don’t have to go to jail.

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.”

Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort filed a civil lawsuit in a DC court Wednesday against Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein and the Justice Department. The lawsuit alleges Mueller has gone outside of his scope as Special Counsel and the charges brought by Mueller have nothing to do with the 2016 presidential election.

Crack reporter at CNN informed the nation that President Trump doesn’t have an ACTUAL nuclear button on his desk and that the “nuclear football” isn’t an ACTUAL football, two factoids everybody ELSE in the country has known for decades.

ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd got majorly fact-checked after tweeting the total lie that the money the US sent Iran as part of nuclear deal was not taxpayer money.

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.

Mitch McConnell Folds on Opposition to Roy Moore: ‘We’re Going to Let the People of Alabama Decide’

“Well, I think — we’re going to let the people of Alabama decide a week from Tuesday who they want to send to the Senate. And then we’ll address the matter appropriately,” McConnell said, insinuating that he would back a Senate Ethics Committee investigation of the allegations against Moore when Moore wins on Dec. 12.

[CtH: Meanwhile, they’re letting Democrats decide IF they want to resign?]

I PREDICT IF MOORE WINS AND McCONNELL REFUSES TO SEAT HIM, THERE WILL BE A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS.

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.

[CtH: What does it say about the Democratic Party that they feel confident that FELONS will vote for THEIR candidates?]

Supreme Court Allows Trump’s Full Travel Ban In 7-2 Decision

The Supreme Court on Monday allowed the Trump administration to fully enforce the travel ban by residents from six radical regimes and failed states. The travel ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. And officials from North Korea and Venezuela.
Far left Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented.

Trump’s Plan To Overhaul National Monuments Law Is All About ‘Righting Past Overreach’

TRUMP SPOKE IN UTAH TODAY AND RETURNED 2 MILLION ACRES THAT OBAMA ILLEGALLY CONFISCATED TO STOP ENERGY EXPLORATION.

Trump will sign orders to shrink the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments as recommended by Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. However, that’s only the first step in the administration’s plan for the Antiquities Act.

“Public lands should be for the enjoyment of everyone, not just special interests,” will be the Trump administration’s message in this effort

http://dailycaller.com/2017/12/04/trumps-plan-to-overhaul-national-monuments-law-is-all-about-righting-past-overreach/

Utah state leaders Greg Hughes and Wayne Niederhauser thanked President Trump for following through on a promise to voters.

“This is great news for the residents of southern Utah who depend on the use of public lands for their livelihoods and the Native Americans who depend on access to Bears Ears lands for their material and spiritual needs.”

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: 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.”

Happy Race Neutral Friday

The original title was going to be “Happy race neutral, non-gender specific, nonbinary, gluten-free, nonjudgmental, pasteurized, homogenized, lactose free, gun free, zenith of crass commercialism Friday.” But it wouldn’t fit.

We have entered the month of retail Armageddon known as the Christmas shopping season. My promise to you is that you will never see ‘xmas’ in any reference to the celebration of Christ’s birth in anything I post. We are not ashamed of who we are.

Doing my paper delivery this morning, I passed through the parking lot of a Menard’s and a Target store. There were a few people at 3:30, but it’s not like it was some years ago when stores didn’t begin the orgy of spending on Thanksgiving night.

There was a time in my foolish youth when I enjoyed going to shopping malls, buying gifts, fighting crowds, immersed in the frenzy of the day.

When I was in college we played a game called ‘the parking lot game.’ Sick, but fun. We’d park in the last row at the mall and go inside. When we came out there were cars circling the parking lot like so many mechanical buzzards, cruising for a parking spot near the front. We’d take out our keys and pretend we were looking for where we parked and see how many cars we could get to follow us looking to grab a spot, like so many sheep following a Judas goat. Three was the most we ever scored. Perverse, twisted, cruel, but all we were really doing was using other peoples’ greed and sloth to amuse ourselves.

These days I can’t imagine people actually subjecting themselves to the bad attitudes of sales people and the short tempers of shoppers looking for deals on big screen TVs. What little shopping I do is accomplished from right where I’m sitting now. Go online, order what you want, and they send it to your door. No muss, no fuss, no smart asses playing the parking lot game.

Hoping everyone had a wonderful day yesterday. It was quiet around here for the most part, just my stepson and I enjoying a football game and gorging on his mama’s culinary expertise. It all seems so pointless somehow. Two weeks of preparation, two days of getting ready for family, and in a half hour it’s over. Now comes four weeks of shopping, decorating, wrapping, tree buying and installation, and in a matter of hours it’s over. Nothing else to look forward to for four months but cold, ice, and snow. It’s called life and we learn to live it.

There is a mix of regular political nonsense leavened with some warm items to help your digestion today.

Trumps Spend Thanksgiving Serving Meals To Active Duty Armed Forces

“Incredible people, you’ve done an incredible job,” Trump said.

The First Lady jumped in to tell the group: “Happy Thanksgiving!” She smiled and waved with both hands as she spoke.

The president offered to take questions from the Coast Guard, although no one spoke up — which the president says he loves.


JUST THINK… A FIRST LADY WHO DOESN’T NEED A BOOB BELT OR $500 SNEAKERS TO LOOK STUNNING (not saying the Wookie could, on the best day she ever had).

DEMOCRAT NEWS NETWORK: CNN Fails To Report These 24 Democrat Sex Scandals

All of the Democrat sex scandals that CNN has failed to report on have made news in 2017, with 19 of the 24 making news within the last month.

THE MEDIA GOES TO GREAT LENGTHS TO AVOID TALKING ABOUT THE 800 POUND HAM-HANDED GORILLA IN THE ROOM.
When CNN is not busy giving President Donald Trump 93% negative coverage, covering for Islamic terrorists, botching gun reports, or being sued by over 200 African-Americans for racial discrimination, they are busy covering for Democrats across the United States by not reporting on scandals.

Below are 24 recent Democratic sex scandals that CNN has failed to report on their website (documentation showing CNN did not cover the scandals is provided at the bottom of this report).

THIS STORY IS AT ONCE BOTH HEARTWARMING AND INFURIATING.
New Jersey Woman Raises More Than $200K for Homeless Man Who Bought Her Gasoline
Kate McClure, a 27-year-old from New Jersey, told the Inquirer that as she was traveling to Philadelphia to visit a friend, her car suddenly ran out of gasoline. McClure said she was nervous and scared, as the neighborhood where her car stopped was sketchy.
“My heart was beating out of my chest,” McClure said. “I didn’t know what the heck to do.”

After calling her boyfriend, 38-year-old Mark D’Amico, who promised to come get her, McClure said a homeless man named Johnny approached her car to help.

They learned he is Johnny Bobbitt Jr., 34, from the Raleigh, N.C., area. He was an ammunition technician in the Marines. His Facebook page includes photos and posts that trace a romantic relationship from its happier days to its 2014 breakup

According to McClure, Johnny — who takes care of two other men under a bridge in the area — told her to lock her car doors and that he would return.

Johnny told her to sit tight and that he would spend his last $20 to buy gas a few blocks away. “He said, ‘I’ll be back. Trust me,’” McClure told the Inquirer.

Ten minutes after speaking with McClure, Johnny returned with a gallon of gas that he had bought with his last $20.

Johnny told McClure that he is interested in working at the Robbinsville, New Jersey, Amazon warehouse so he can get health benefits and make a decent living.

Though McClure and D’Amico continued passing through to see Johnny in Philadelphia, they still felt they could do more. That is when they decided to fund raise to help change Johnny’s life, setting up a GoFundMe page that has far exceeded the $10,000 goal the couple originally set.

“He knows where he’s at and he knows what he has to do to dig himself out,” D’Amico told the Inquirer. “It’s almost impossible to dig himself out if he has nobody and nothing. If we can raise enough money to set him up for a few months, where he doesn’t have to worry about where he’s going to sleep and what he’s going to eat, then he can get a job and go about his life.”

A VETERAN, NOT UNLIKE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF OTHERS THAT HAVE FALLEN ON HARD TIMES AND ARE LARGELY IGNORED WHILE LIBERALS PISS AND MOAN ABOUT THE “RIGHTS” OF ILLEGALS WE SPEND $100 BILLION A YEAR TO PROVIDE A FREE RIDE TO WHILE THEY CONTRIBUTE NOTHING. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THE HOMELESS VETS, MANY WITH DRUG OR MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, NOT TO GET THE CARE THEY EARNED. OK, I’M DONE NOW.

Union Walmart protests fizzle as a Black Friday tradition
IT REALLY GALLS THE LIBERALS THAT THEY CAN’T BULLY WALMART EMPLOYEES INTO UNIONIZING SO THEY CAN GRAB ALL THAT DUES MONEY TO HELP ELECT DEMOCRATS… PITY.

Unions have stopped trying to use Walmart’s day-after-Thanksgiving ‘Black Friday’ sales to launch public relations blitzes against the corporation, effectively conceding that the once-high profile efforts were making little headway toward organizing a union at the nation’s largest employer

Ritter said the union had determined that Black Friday — traditionally the kick-off of Christmas shopping season and a major event for retailers — was no longer as big of an event due to the growth of online sales.

‘Black Liberation’ Group Vows To Shut Down Black Friday Shopping To Fight Racism

ANOTHER REASON TO SHOP ONLINE.

Black Liberation Front-Seattle, an “assertive” group aimed at fighting racism, also launched a four-hour demonstration called “BlackLivesMatterFriday 4.0 -Racism. It Stops With Me” to show the country that racism is unacceptable.

Approximately 10,000 people have marked “interested” on social media for this event, and over 1,000 people have said they plan on attending the Friday demonstration.

THERE ARE THOSE WHO WANT TO TEAR DOWN AND THOSE WHO WANT TO LIFT UP
‘Miracle Park’ to be built in Rock Hill will be designed specifically for people with special needs


The so-called Miracle Park is a dream of the York County Disabilities Foundation. Last week, the foundation presented the idea to Rock Hill’s City Council, pushing the project forward.

The Miracle Park would sit on a 15-acre piece of land, partially on the current “Winthrop Park.” The land is owned by both the City of Rock Hill (7 acres) and Winthrop University (8 acres). City Council agreed to lease the land to the non-profit for $1 a year, so the Foundation could purse the Miracle Park.

“A miracle field is basically a field made of synthetic rubber so that people with disabilities and wheel chairs can play on these fields,” Norman said.

[CtH: One of my offspring took her kidlets to a park like this and said it made her weepy seeing all the disabled kids having so much FUN.  She’s like me … cries when she’s overflowing with joy.]

Nebraska Approves Keystone XL Pipeline

ONE WORD: MAGA!! (actually an acronym) [CtH: I think it’s an acronym that has become a word, though I dunno if any dictionaries have accepted it!  Other words Trump has added to our lexicon:  bigly and yuge.  I’d like to include covfefe, but I have no idea how to pronounce it or what it actually means! LOL]

The Nebraska Public Service Commission approved the Keystone XL pipeline, removing the last regulatory hurdle for the oil project after years of former President Barack Obama’s blocking the pipeline’s approval.

President Donald Trump quickly reversed Obama’s decision after taking office. Trump has pursued an energy policy of “energy dominance,” which sought to undo burdensome energy regulations and open up America’s energy resources.

Student Who Stole A MAGA Hat Off Someone’s Head Faces Year In Jail

SUCKS TO BE YOU, SWEETIE.

UCR is letting people wear this shit on campus?” asked Macias in a video of the incident. “Make American Great Again, really? There were lynchings and genocide and mass deportations.…I fucking hate this country.… And I am not leaving.…We need to get rid of all ya’ll.”

When Vitale asked for his hat back, she said “F*** your freedom of speech boy, your freedom of speech is literally killing a lot of people out there, your hats like these that promote laws and legislation that literally kill and murder people of color.”

[CtH: Good luck getting this witch to cite a single example of a U.S. law that literally kills anyone.  Betcha she demanded HER constitutional rights though.  Hypocrite.]

‘CBS This Morning’ wants Oprah to fill in for fired Charlie Rose: report
SERIOUSLY?

“CBS This Morning” is reportedly “begging” Oprah Winfrey to fill in for former co-host Charlie Rose, who was fired from the network after sexual harassment allegations.

“They are begging Oprah to fill in,” a source told Page Six. “Not full time … But they are hoping she’ll do one day, two days, one hour, fill in ’til Christmas. Anything.”

“Unless you get a superstar [on the show], it’s always going to be, ‘Charlie’s missing,'” an insider told the publication.

Hillary Clinton: I Couldn’t Run A Real Change Campaign Because Of Obama

HOPE AND CHANGE! HOPE AND CHANGE! IT GOT MY SORRY ASS ELECTED TWICE
HILLARY CLINTON:

… I have high regard for the campaign that we put together, and all of the people who were working in it so hard. But I think it is fair to say that it was hard to break through.  I’ve said a few times that this was the first reality TV campaign. My opponent was the first reality TV candidate, and I was, for better or worse, the candidate of reality. And I think it was a shortcoming of the campaign that the work that I’ve done my entire life. The passion I feel for helping people, the record that I have of doing just that never really could break through.

THE FACT I’M A LYING, GREEDY, CORRUPT SKANK WITHOUT ANY MORAL COMPASS WHATEVER, AND EVERYBODY KNEW IT, HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MY GETTING A GRADE ‘A’ BEATDOWN.

[CtH: I wonder when she’ll ever get tired of listening to her own whining.  Never is a literal possibility, I suppose.]

O’Malley: Obama Devastated Democratic Party Like a ‘Bad Forest Fire’

Wednesday on ABC’s “Powerhouse Politics” podcast, 2016 Democratic presidential candidate and former Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-MD) said former President Barack Obama’s decision to set up Organizing for America rather than “infusing” his energy into the Democratic Party devastated the party on state and local levels like a “bad forest fire.”

Lock Up Lois Lerner
I’VE BEEN REPULSED BY THIS SNEERING HAG SINCE THE FIRST TIME SHE TESTIFIED BEFORE CONGRESS.  SHE COMMITTED FELONIES AND ABUSED HER POWER WITH NO FEAR OF CONSEQUENCES BECAUSE SHE WAS DOING OBAMA’S BIDDING AND HE PROTECTED HER.  THEN TRUMP APPOINTED A MILQUETOAST WHO PROCEEDED TO RECUSE HIMSELF FROM DOING HIS JOB.

Former IRS official Lois Lerner and her deputy are asking a federal court to keep their testimonies in the Tea Party targeting case private forever, over fear of death threats and potential harm to their families if the documents go public.

Only the lawless Lois Lerner would feel threatened by legal proceedings initiated by her abuse of government power. Calling her and her IRS co-conspirators “criminal thugs” is not a threat but an understatement. What she fears is not violence but that the truth about her crimes, what she did and what she got away with, will be finally and fully known and that she would no longer be able to hide behind a bogus and fraudulent Fifth Amendment pleading before Congress.

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

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.

President Donald J. Trump is dedicating this week to workforce development. Across the United States there exists a skills gap that must be addressed. Americans are unemployed and seeking employment, and companies are struggling to fill vacancies for positions that require varying levels of skill and training.

President Trump’s Administration is committed to closing the skills gap and ensuring Americans are trained for the jobs available and the jobs of the future.

CtH: Just guessing that “gender studies” isn’t on the list of needed training.

Trump Believe in AmericaRick Perry: ‘First-ever’ natural gas exports offer hedge against Russia

“The Trump administration has made approval of natural gas exports a key part of its energy and national security strategy. The U.S. is the world’s top producer of oil and gas due to the fracking and shale energy boom.

CtH; I’m sure it makes a TON of sense that Putin “hacked the election” to get Trump in the White House, instead of former SecState Clinton who sold Russia a bunch of our uranium. /sarc

Debunking the 97% Climate Lie

Fossil Fuel Use is Good for Humans

Climate activists want to make the vast majority of fossil fuel use illegal.  To justify this poverty-inducing plan, they repeat the lie that 97% of climate scientists agree with them.

TRUE:  Climate scientists DO agree that there has been a global warming trend over the past 150 years.  Some of them even concede that human beings have contributed to it.

HOWEVER, the warming trend has been tiny (0.8 degrees C), it started before the rise of man-made CO2, and it has abated in recent years even as CO2 levels have continued to rise.

1850-2012 Global temps and CO2

LIE:  The “97% of climate scientists believe we should restrict fossil fuels” lie was invented by a guy who wants to limit fossil fuel use.  He did it by cherry picking a bunch of climate papers and falsely reporting that 97% of them agreed with him.

According to the article linked below, far from going full on Al Gore about fossil fuel use, only a relative handful of the cherry picked papers even endorse the view that human emissions of greenhouse gases are more than 50% responsible for the small amount of warming we’ve seen over the past 150 years.

The author quotes one of the scientists whose papers were included in the bogus survey. He reported that only 10 of his 122 eligible papers had been included, nine of which were rated incorrectly as to what he really said.
