The TRUTH about fracking, natural gas and vinyl [18:11]
In 2014, OPEC began flooding the global marketplace with oil in an attempt to depress prices to counter competition, largely from fracking. Oil prices fell from $105 per barrel in June 2014 to only $29.04 per barrel in January 2016.
But, OPEC’s strategy backfired. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), OPEC’s artificially low oil prices succeeded only in making fracking companies “leaner and more efficient.” In fact, oil production here at home remained relatively constant.
Now, OPEC has announced it will be cutting production, sending the price soaring to $52.04 per barrel, illustrating why we need to decrease our dependence on imported oil and increase U.S. production.
The Paris Climate Agreement will cost at least $1 trillion per year, and climate activists say it will save the planet. The truth? It won’t do anything for the planet, but it will make everyone poorer–except politicians and environmentalists. Bjorn Lomborg explains.
So much to do. I’m watching the confirmation hearings and I hope to have the video I’m watching now to post later. Sen. Ted Cruz is absolutely disemboweling the Democrats who suddenly are obsessed with the rule of law while they said nothing for 8 years while Holder made a mockery of the word ‘Justice’. He had special words of disgust for Sen. Stuart Smalley (Idiot-Minnesota).
Never to be deterred, two stupid white people got up in the gallery screaming ‘black lives matter!’ before being escorted out by DC police.

Still, there are other newsworthy items.
Alibaba job boom: Jack Ma chats with Trump about how to create 1 million US jobs over 5 years
ALI BABA IS AN ASIAN VERSION OF E-BAY. MA IS THE RICHEST MAN IN ASIA.
“We’re focused on small business,” Ma told reporters. “We specifically talked about … supporting 1 million small businesses, especially in the Midwest of America. Small businesses on the platform selling products — agriculture products and America services — to China and Asia, because we’re pretty big in Asia.”
Like Etsy or eBay, Alibaba enables third-party sellers in China to take their own businesses to the web. The company only had 36,446 full-time employees, almost all in China, as of March 31, according to SEC filings. But with more than 10 million active sellers as of 2015, Alibaba estimates its China retail marketplaces “contributed to the creation of over 15 million job opportunities.”
[CtH: But I’m sure he “didn’t build that.”]
‘There Are No Jobs’: Obama Loyalists Scramble To Find Work
Thousands of Obama loyalists are struggling to find work in a city now dominated by the GOP, according to a report from Politico. “It feels like there are just thousands of us trying to find a job, and there are no jobs,” Mira Patel, a longtime Clinton aide told Politico.
[CtH: Karma sucks, don’t it?]
Final bill for Hillary futility: $1.2 billion
As Matt Vespa reminds us, Hillary Clinton once offered this zinger about Donald Trump’s claims to be a business wizard: “What kind of genius loses a billion dollars in a single year?”
The New York Post has the answer in their review of election-campaign financial disclosures. The final cost of Hillary’s futile bid for the presidency — including monies spent by the Democratic Party and supporting PACS — exceeded $1.2 billion.
After Goldberg read McCain’s tweet, she insisted that people should stop criticizing Hollywood like it was a “bad word.” She then lectured on the history of Hollywood and said that prior to the 1970s, Hollywood was dominated by right-leaning groups.
“That’s how we ended up with McCarthyism and all of these so-called ‘lefties’ being rounded up and eaten up basically for their beliefs,” Goldberg said.
[CtH: The “open mindedness” of liberals in Hollywood totally explains why Republican actors are the ones hiding in their closets now.]
Dem Sen. Dick Durbin Acknowledges Sessions’ Work Has Spared Blacks “Thousands Of Years In Prison”
“Restricted offshore areas could hold more than 50 billion barrels, or more, of oil and more than 195 trillion cubic feet of natural gas,” Gerard said. “Just imagine what the industry could do to further benefit consumers, the economy and the environment if more of that energy were available for responsible and safe domestic production.”
Obama: Don’t Blame Me For The Democrats’ Demise
Clearly, whatever leadership Obama provided, it wasn’t helping Democrats connect with voters across the country.
So what was Obama’s response?
At first, he tried — and we’re not making this up — to blame President Bush.
“I came in the middle of worst financial crisis since the Great Depression,” he said. And since “in 2010 there were a lot of folks who were still out of work,” whoever was president was “gonna get hit.”
[CtH: Reality check, BHO. There are 14.5 million more Americans out of work now than when you took over from Bush.]
Instead, Obama said — and again, we are not making this up — that he was just too darn busy being president to help his fellow Democrats.
“My docket was really full here,” Obama said, “so I can’t be both chief organizer of the Democratic Party and function as commander in chief and president of the United States.”
Stephanopoulos was either too polite or too partisan to not laugh out loud at this statement.

To highlight what they say is the hypocrisy of Trump’s campaign promise to be a champion for the economically struggling little guy, they’ll focus on the nominees’ wealth, ties to Wall Street and willingness to privatize Medicare, among other issues.
Trump Supporters Threaten Bar for Refusing to Host ‘DeploraBall’: Report
The statement further denied that the DeploraBall was canceled due to political pressure, and in fact the event had never been booked so there was nothing to cancel.

Also names Catherine Lhamon, who argued against due process in sex-harassment casesA LAST, GIGANTIC F*CK YOU! TO LAW ENFORCEMENT
In a move sure to fray his relations with law enforcement, President Obama on Thursday appointed Debo Adegbile, a former attorney for convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, to a six-year post on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.
Mr. Adegbile worked at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund when he represented Abu-Jamal in the appeal of his conviction and death sentence for the notorious 1981 shooting death of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. Abu-Jamal’s sentence was reduced to life in prison.

“The order (to withdraw the plan) should explain that it is the administration’s view that the (Clean Power Plan) is unlawful and that EPA lacks authority to enforce it,” Morrisey told reporters. “The executive order is necessary to send an immediate and strong message to States and regulated entities that the administration will not enforce the rule.”

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Requests Pardon from Obama Before Trump Takes Office
The pardon would avert Bergdahl’s court-martial trial, which is slated to begin April 18.
He is facing charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy that endangered fellow soldiers.
President-elect Donald Trump criticized Bergdahl on the campaign trail, calling him a “dirty, rotten traitor” who “should have been executed,” the Hill reported.

Obama, Senate Democrats Trying to Keep FCC Democrat Controlled Under Trump Administration
OBAMA AND REID ARE GOING TO SCREW TRUMP ANY WAY THEY CAN
Harry Reid and President Obama are circulating a petition to remove the hold on FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel so that she can be reconfirmed before Congress recesses next week
If Obama and the Senate Democrats successfully reconfirm Rosenworcel, the FCC will remain in Democratic control during President-elect Trump’s administration. Her reconfirmation would block Trump’s ability to nominate both Jamison and Eisenach.
HUUUGE NEVADA VOTER FRAUD UNCOVERED? WORSE THAN ACORN
YOU WONDER HOW DINGY HARRY REID, THE MOST REVILED MAN IN NEVADA, KEPT WINNING?
Edward Snowden, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and dozens of movie stars were registered to vote in District 15 according to Mr. Vaughan. Mr. Vaughan tested a sample of 200 people of the 9,200 return mail and found that 185 of those had indeed voted.
Mr. Vaughan and many others have testified that they went to the polls to vote only to be told they had voted already. They were given a provisional ballots which would only be counted if the total vote count was within 1% according to poll supervisors.
A total number of 17,086 votes were cast in District 15 for both Republican and Democrat candidates. 9,200 voters on the voter rolls who, by law, should not be on the voter rolls is a huuge discrepancy. Vaughan reported the certified returned mail issue to Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, who according to Vaughan, sent the issue back to Clark County to investigate itself.

Trump speaks with Taiwan’s president, risking China tensions
It is perhaps unprecedented for a U.S. president or president-elect to speak directly with a leader of Taiwan, a self-governing island the U.S. broke diplomatic ties with in 1979.
In first comments apparently meant to downplay the significance of the call, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Saturday that the contact between Taiwan’s president and Trump was “just a small trick by Taiwan” that he believed would not change U.S. policy toward China, according to Hong Kong’s Phoenix TV.

Media: If Trump’s Economy Is Good, Thank Obama!
And so a new media narrative has just been launched: If Donald Trump succeeds, it will be because President Barack Obama gave him such a great push. How else to explain the near simultaneous publication of two articles on Friday, one in Politico, the other at FiveThirtyEight.
Nabisco Now Wants to Talk to Trump
On the campaign trail, Trump slammed Nabisco for moving jobs to Mexico, vowing to never eat another Oreo even though he loves them.
After Donald Trump negotiated a deal to keep nearly 1,000 Indiana-based Carrier jobs from moving to Mexico, Nabisco is now looking to open the lines of communication with the president-elect.
How Trump Could Create Millions Of Energy Jobs
A 2015 study found the coal industry lost 50,000 jobs from 2008 to 2012 during Obama’s first term. During Obama’s second term, the industry employment in coal mining has fallen by another 33,300 jobs, 10,900 of which occurred in the last year alone, according to federal data. As a result, many ex-coal miners are unemployed and Appalachian “coal country” has faced very real economic devastation as a result.
Obama sneaks $4 billion for illegals in lame duck budget

Obama Looking Forward To Vacation After The White House
The Obamas Just Bought Another House — And This One Is Really Far From Home
Though the family has already leased a posh nine-bedroom mansion in the North West neighborhood of Washington, D.C. for when they leave the White House, Barack and Michelle Obama are now the proud owners of a fifth home on the West Coast.
The Obamas bought a house in Rancho Mirage, Calif., a small town located near Palm Springs that is known for its golf resorts and was frequented by Obama during his presidency.
[CtH: The better for them to never again have to endure living in the same house. Remember when Candidate John McCain was reamed out for owning 7 houses? The hypocrisy of the Left never lets up. Candidate Rubeo was ripped for owning a fishing boat that cost less than a Prius. SecState Kerry owns a multimillion dollar yacht. And they’ve already started tut-tutting over the cost of Melania’s clothes, having ignored Michelle’s pricey wardrobe for 8 years.]
Obama’s Never-Ending Lecture Tour
President Obama, who has done less for Europe than any American President since Calvin Coolidge, cannot stop telling Europeans what to do. As Obama sets out on his final European tour as President, with his political party back home in a state of near collapse, and with Putin inflicting yet another painful humiliation on the least successful American President in the history of the modern Middle East, nothing seems able to shake his serene confidence that he knows more than other people, sees farther than they do, and that other people are eager to gather up his pearls of insight.
[CtH: I’m guessing he surrounds himself with people who lick his shoes.]

“I don’t give a damn what the president wants to do,” he said. “We will not waterboard. We will not torture people.”
McCain went even further to say that anyone who brought back waterboarding would be in court in a “New York minute.”
“If they started waterboarding, I swear to you that we’d have them in court in a New York minute,” McCain said.
House erupts in chaos after LGBT vote
KARMA’S A BITCH, AIN’T IT?
It was an unruly scene on the floor with Democrats chanting, “Shame!” after GOP leaders barely muscled up the votes to reject, 212-213, an amendment by Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.) that would have effectively barred federal contractors from getting government work if they discriminate against the LGBT community.
Maloney, the amendment’s author, was furious with Republicans for how they handled the floor fight over his offering. He singled out Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) in particular for criticism, saying the No. 2 House Republican personally lobbied GOP members to change their votes when it looked like Maloney’s proposal would pass.
Jeff Sessions may prosecute ‘sanctuary cities’ if confirmed as attorney general
ACCORDING TO THE 10TH AMENDMENT, STATES CANNOT BE FORCED TO COOPERATE WITH FEDERAL AUTHORITIES.
From his first day in office, Mr. Sessions will have the power to strip some federal funding from sanctuary cities, thanks to rulings this year by the Justice Department’s inspector general, who said federal law requires localities to cooperate with immigration agents — and who provided an initial list of a handful of the worst offenders.
“The sanctuary cities thing is huge. I think most jurisdictions are going to fold like a cheap suit,” said Rosemary Jenks, government relations manager at NumbersUSA, which lobbies for stricter immigration laws.
Shocker: In Wake of Hillary’s Defeat, Donations to Clinton Foundation Dry Up
THAT WOULD BE LIKE PAYING A HOOKER FOR A HANDSHAKE. NO BANG FOR THE BUCK.
Donations fell as the former Secretary of State left the group in April last year shortly after announcing her run for the White House. Her departure also meant that revenue brought in from paid speeches plunged from $3.6 million in 2014 to just $357,500.
House Warns Obama, Passes New Law That Prevents Him from Pushing Through Last Minute Rules And Regulations
He knows his time is running out and he also knows he hasn’t really accomplished much.
It’s crunch time and we often see presidents try to cram parts of their agenda into these last few months.
Remember Bill Clinton’s infamous pardon of Marc Rich?
House Republicans made a big move this week to try and prevent any last-minute funny business from the president.
Obama blocks new oil, gas drilling in Arctic Ocean
HE’S GOING TO DO ALL HE CAN TO CREATE AS MUCH CHAOS AS POSSIBLE BEFORE HE LEAVES
A five-year offshore drilling plan announced on Friday blocks the planned sale of new oil and gas drilling rights in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas north of Alaska. The plan allows drilling to go forward in Alaska’s Cook Inlet southwest of Anchorage.
The blueprint for drilling from 2017 to 2022 can be rewritten by President-elect Donald Trump, in a process that could take months or years.
Despite that, industry representatives reacted bitterly to the latest announcement, calling the decision blatantly political.
“The arrogance of the decision is unfathomable, but unfortunately not surprising,” said Randall Luthi, president of the National Ocean Industries Association, an industry group.

It also noted other shows like “The Color Purple,” “Porgy & Bess” and “Matilda” that call for “race, ethnicity or age specific casting” — but agreed to tweak the ad.
“The casting will be amended to also include language we neglected to add, that is, we welcome people of all ethnicities to audition for ‘Hamilton,’” the statement added.
Asked about the casting call, the city Human Rights Commission reiterated that discrimination based on age, race, gender, disability and “other protected categories in employment advertisements” is prohibited.

Pence’s Hamilton Lecture Is A Reminder That Urban Elites Just Don’t Get It
They still don’t get it. They still don’t freaking get it. The metropolitan elites (i.e. snobby liberals) simply cannot grasp the America that exists beyond the highways and the suburbs. The forgotten communities that President-elect Trump resonated in and who had their revenge on November 8 when they loudly shouted that they’re not with her [Clinton].
If anybody knows how to jerk the press around, it has to be Donald Trump. I can imagine he gets a real kick out of them making fools of themselves as they try to trip him up at every turn. He slipped out the other night to have dinner with his family at 21, a high-end steak house. It so happened there was a reporter there who immediately tweeted to all his co-conspirators that he was there. High dudgeon all around. How dare he actually go to dinner with his family without checking with them first? The nerve of the guy! Who does he think he is, the president?
As Trump Leaves Press Behind for Steak Dinner, Incoming Admin Already Showing Lack of Transparency
In a highly unusual move, President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night left his Manhattan residence without notifying the reporters covering him or giving any indication of where he was going.
The maneuver seemed to deliberately limit access to the media.
The only way the press eventually ascertained his whereabouts was after a Bloomberg reporter, who happened to be dining at the 21 Club, tweeted a photo of Trump and some of his transition team in the Midtown steakhouse.
While the dinner choice left the media mad, diners inside the former speakeasy were ecstatic.
“There was a standing ovation when he came and left,” said Andrew Testo, a 43-year-old who was eating with friends. “He was with his whole family. It was like Sunday dinner with the Trumps, but on a Tuesday. It was awesome.”
THINK HE DID IT ON PURPOSE? YOU BETCHA. AND WITH GOOD REASON.
MEDIA WAR ON TRUMP: Top 28 of 35 US News Stories on Tuesday were Anti-Trump Hit Pieces
The top stories on Tuesday show the absolute anti-Trump bias by corrupt American media.
28 of the top 35 articles are anti-Trump hit pieces.
The headlines include:
— Trump Transition Shake-Up Part of ‘Stalinesque Purge’ of Christie Loyalists
— Was Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s Attack Dog, Paid Illegally?
— There’s No Such Thing as a Good Trump Voter
Noted Constitutional Scholar, Barbra Streisand, Urges Obama To Bypass Senate, Appoint Supreme Court Justice Unilaterally
“According to the Washington Post, he has the power to do this since Congress has refused to vote, and apparently that can be considered a waiver of its rights to advise and consent,” she said.
Her Washington Post citation referred to an April 8 op-ed by Gregory L. Diskant, a national board member of the liberal advocacy group Common Cause, who argued that the Senate would have “waived its right” to confirm a justice if it failed to do so in a “reasonable amount of time.”
Democrats’ new Senate leader open to filibustering Trump’s Supreme Court picks
COUNT ON OBSTRUCTION AT EVERY TURN
Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said nominations to the high court should get support from both parties, and said the filibuster is a way to enforce that on a president. He pointedly noted that when his party changed filibuster rules three years ago, they left intact the ability to filibuster at the Supreme Court level.
“I’ll underline that we did not change the rules for Supreme Court because we thought on something as important as this, there should be some degree of bipartisan agreement,” Mr. Schumer said.
Nancy Pelosi On Trump Win: “We’ve Been Through Hell”
A lot of the newer democrat reps think after 14 years as leader, it’s time to put this swaybacked nag out to pasture.
One senior House Democratic aide described Tuesday’s meeting as being unusually contentious as members grappled with how the Democratic Party should rebuild following last week’s election losses, with some wanting new blood in leadership.
“After every single election cycle, she (Pelosi) says things are going to change” in how she interacts with the caucus, the aide said characterizing lawmakers’ concerns. “But then, she doesn’t do anything different. It’s the same inside circle” surrounding her.
President Trump is Going to Hit Some Very Nasty Greenies Where it Really Hurts
Like a baby sea otter on MDMA, basically: frolicking and swooping and frisking and diving in the lovely warm, salty water made up entirely of the tears of Hillary voters, greens, and the bien-pensant wankerati.
THE BIEN PENSANT WANKERATI…. DELINGPOLE HAS A WAY WITH WORDS
When it comes to dealing with people who behave badly and ruin the lives of others, I’m with the Old Testament rather than the New one: don’t turn the other cheek, let alone love them as thyself, but smite them, salt them, and crush them underfoot like the mutant slugs they are.
Nowhere, it seems to me, is the kind of retribution more necessary than in the field of environmentalism.
The MSM Savaging of Melania Trump Begins
And so, a piece at Yahoo News made an issue of a dress that Melania Trump recently wore. The headline read: “Melania Trump Wore a $1,655 Fiery Red Dress for 60 Minutes Interview.”
Were readers supposed to be outraged by the price tag? Given the media’s predisposition to smear the Trumps at every turn, I’ll assume the worst intentions about the headline.
COMPARING MELANIA TRUMP TO MICHELLE OBAMA IS LIKE COMPARING A MASERATI TO A DUMP TRUCK
Anyone remember the dress Michelle Obama wore a couple of years ago when she and Barry hosted French President Francois Hollande at the White House? It cost $12,000.
OF COURSE HER DRESSES COST MORE…. IT TAKES 40 YARDS OF MATERIAL FOR CHRISSAKE
Hillary Makes First Appearance Since Concession: I “Never Wanted To Leave House Again”
WHY, HILLARY…YOU LOOK LIKE SOMEBODY JUST WALKED OVER YOUR GRAVE
(IF YOU WATCHED “TOMBSTONE” YOU’LL GET THAT ONE)
A weary-looking Hillary Clinton said Wednesday evening at her first public appearance since she conceded to Donald Trump that she considered cancelling her speech to the children’s advocacy group but kept the commitment out of respect for her mentor.
‘I will admit coming here tonight wasn’t the easiest thing for me,’ she said at the Children’s Defense Fund’s gala in Washington, D.C.
Jason Chaffetz: We Aren’t Done With Hillary Yet
“We have to get to the truth. It was was never about a political targeting of Hillary Clinton. She created one of the biggest security breaches in the history of the State Department. We still have tens-of-thousands of documents we still haven’t seen, there’s more than Hillary Clinton involved in this, you have dozens of people within the bowels of the organization,” Chaffetz said.
With Trump’s Signature, Dozens of Obama’s Rules Could Fall
Dozens of major regulations passed recently by the Obama administration — including far-reaching changes on health care, consumer protections and environmental safety — could be undone with the stroke of a pen by Donald J. Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress starting in January, thanks to a little-used law that dates back to 1996.
And it comes with a scorched-earth kicker: If the law is used to strike down a rule, the federal agency that issued it is barred from enacting similar regulation again in the future.
No, Obama can’t grant ‘amnesty’ by pardoning illegal immigrants
In reality, the president does not possess this authority, as unauthorized presence in the U.S. is a civil violation, not a criminal one. Presidential pardon power only applies to federal crimes, described as “offenses against the United States” in the Constitution. As such, “a pardon can’t make someone a citizen or lawful resident,” explains John Harrison, a law professor at the University of Virginia. “Deportation is not a criminal proceeding, it’s a civil process that removes from the country someone who is not entitled to be here.”
Giuliani: Trump can disavow Iran deal on day one
Former New York Mayor explains that Trump is not bound by Iran deal since Obama never brought it to the Senate for approval.
“First of all, the president has a lot of options. President Obama didn’t do what he should have done, under the Constitution. He should have submitted that to the Congress, that’s a treaty. There’s no way of escaping the fact that that’s a treaty,” argued Giuliani.
“It should have been submitted to the Senate… he never did. What that means is, that deal is over with the current president. Trump can disavow it, as a matter of law, like that,” he continued.
Jason Riley: Harlem Gives President Trump a Chance
When I asked Pace, who retired from a job in dress manufacturing several years ago, if he thought Mr. Trump would ever win him over, he responded: “He said he’d protect Medicare. I can go along with that. He said he’d get rid of the Bloods and the Crips and the gangs—get them out of here. I like that. If he does those two things, he’s my man.”
USGS Announces Largest Oil And Gas Deposit Ever Assessed In U.S.
TRUMP KNOWS ENERGY IS THE LIFE BLOOD OF THE ECONOMY. HOPEFULLY, HE ALLOWS PRODUCTION TO START
On Tuesday, the USGS announced that an area known as the Wolfcamp shale contains 20 billion barrels of oil and 16 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
That is nearly three times more petroleum than the agency found in North Dakota’s Bakken shale in 2013.
“The Texas discovery is in a place that has been drilled before by conventional methods,” Jeff reported for NPR’s Newscast Unit. “But now that oil companies use horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing — or fracking — they can access reserves that previously were out of reach.”
Liberal hysteria over Trump is rapidly becoming self-satire
It turns out that the hundred million dollars’ worth of Hillary campaign demonization has paid off in creating millions of people gripped by hysteria over the utter evilness of Donald Trump. Calling Trump Hitler is already passé so the quest for superlatives of evil is running out of material. According to a U.S. Congressman, Hitler, and even Stalin and Mao are all pikers in terms of mass killing.
This Is No Time to Go Wobbly, Donald
Trump must continue to refuse to play the game.
Democrats have repeatedly proven that bipartisanship to them means that Republicans roll over for whatever Democrats want. If not, Republicans are tarred as obstructionists, racists, or whatever other epithet du jour. That’s because progressives are cultists hungry for more power so they can impose their ideological vision by any means necessary. Like Goldfinger, they don’t want Republicans to talk, they want them to die.
Obama sets new record for regulations, 527 pages in just one day
“This is astonishing and should be of great concern, and intolerable, to policymakers. It is remarkable enough that the all-time record has been passed before Thanksgiving,” he added.
Obama has promised to regulate by executive authority, but the sheer number of pages of regulations being rushed through is astonishing.
Trump Could Cut $42 Billion Worth Of Regs Upon Taking Office
Trump said on the campaign trail that 70 percent of federal regulations “can go,” so the American Action Forum (AAF) put together a list of 48 major regulations Congress could invalidate under the Congressional Review Act (CRA).
“Together, those rules impose more than $42.5 billion in total costs, $6.5 billion in annualized costs, and 53 million paperwork burden hours,” AAF analysts Sam Batkins and Dan Goldbeck wrote in a new report.
Obama awards Springsteen, Redford and DeGeneres Medal of Freedom
Before he leaves office, President Obama is decorating a starry list of entertainers, newsmakers and civilians with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
It’s no surprise that Bruce Springsteen made the cut.
On Wednesday, Obama named 21 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, which is presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.
The list honors a who’s-who of Hollywood, including Tom Hanks, Ellen DeGeneres, Diana Ross, Robert DeNiro, Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, Robert Redford and Cicely Tyson.
Richard Engel: Syrian Doctor Says Obama Hasn’t Done Anything for People in Aleppo
I KNOW, I KNOW, SHOCKED, RIGHT?
The doctor actually said President Obama hasn’t done anything for us anyway. Look what just happened now. He’s in the basement of a destroyed hospital and he frankly didn’t think that anything could get worse,” Engel said.
“And he thought maybe with a new president things could get better, so frankly if you’re at rock bottom, which is what they are at in eastern Aleppo, maybe any change looks good,” he added.
At least 87 people, including four children, were killed Wednesday by air strikes over rebel-held eastern Aleppo, CNN reported.
Dem Rep Calls For Review Of Trump’s ‘Financial Empire’
“We have never had a president like Mr. Trump in terms of his vast financial entanglements and his widespread business interests around the globe,” Cummings wrote. “Moreover, we have not had a presidential candidate in modern times who has refused to disclose his tax returns to the American people.”
The entire Battle Royale lasted almost two hours last night. Chances are you didn’t sit through the entire thing. That’s understandable, I didn’t either. The fact is I can barely stand to listen to that lying crone for more than a few seconds. Who won the debate is strictly a matter of opinion. Maybe Donald felt he had to be restrained, for fear of being labeled a bully. I would have sliced and diced both her and that miserable shill who was doing the enabling… errr… moderating this spectacle. See previous post for more on that feckless pile of dreck.
All the videos are less than 2 minutes because my pain tolerance isn’t that high. Everyone with a computer has an opinion on last night’s show, but like they say: opinions are like bungholes… everybody has one.
Not exactly Socrates, but it’s all I got.
Clinton: Everyone Is Racist, Not Just Police
Hillary Clinton said “everyone” in the country is implicitly biased against African Americans during Monday night’s presidential debate.
Moderator Lester Holt prompted the response when he asked Clinton if she thought the police were implicitly biased against blacks.
“Lester, I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police,” she said.
HERE’S AN IDEA: HOW ABOUT DOING WHAT A POLICEMAN TELLS YOU TO DO, RATHER THAN RUN, FIGHT, OR TRY TO KILL THE COP.
SHE’S NOT ALL THAT POPULAR WITH THE HOMIES, SO THIS IS HER SUCKING UP.
Hillary Clinton Says She’s Very Concerned About Cyber Hacking
“But increasingly we are seeing cyber attacks coming from states, organs of states, the most recent and troubling of these has been Russia. There’s no doubt now Russia has used cyber attacks against all kinds of organizations in our country,” Clinton said. “I am deeply concerned about this.”
SO CONCERNED SHE ILLEGALLY USED A PRIVATE SERVER AND LEFT CLASSIFIED INFORMATION FOR EVERY THIRD-RATE CYBER-PUNK TO SEE.

Trump mocks Hillary for recycling line saying he shouldn’t be trusted with the nuclear codes if he can be baited by a tweet
‘So a man who can be provoked by a tweet should not have his fingers anywhere near the nuclear codes as far as I think anyone with any sense about this should be concerned,’ Clinton said, using a familiar applause line that she’s deployed during various foreign policy speeches against her Republican rival.
Trump sniffed upon hearing it.
‘That line is starting to get a little bit old, I must say,’ he said.
‘It’s a good one though,’ she shot back. ‘It describes the problem.’
Media ‘Ooohs,’ Squeals With Delight After Clinton ‘Burns’ Trump Over His Microphone
Hillary Clinton’s campaign press corps let out a collective, giddy “oooh” on Tuesday after the Democratic nominee threw out a zinger against Donald Trump for his complaints about his debate podium’s microphone.
“Anybody who complains about the microphone is not having a good night,” she said.
Clinton Received Debate Questions Week Before Debate, According to Sources
‘WHAT A SURPRISE’…SAID NO ONE EVER
Earlier last week an NBC intern was seen hand delivering a package to Clinton’s campaign headquarters, according to sources. The package was not given to secretarial staff, as would normally happen, but the intern was instead ushered into the personal office of Clinton campaign manager Robert Mook. Members of the Clinton press corps from several media organizations were in attendance at the time, and a reporter from Fox News recognized the intern, but said he was initially confused because the NBC intern was dressed like a Fed Ex employee.
Clinton Runs from Reporters After Debate, Trump Speaks with CNN and Fox News
Immediately following the intense presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Monday night, Clinton quickly exited the arena, dodging questions from major main stream media news outlets.
However, Trump spoke directly to Sean Hannity of Fox News and Dana Bash of CNN answering numerous questions in the post-debate madness
SHE’S NOT ABOUT TO ANSWER QUESTIONS IF SHE DOESN’T GET THEM WELL IN ADVANCE.

MSNBC Anchor Falsely Claims Trump Has Never Been on Stage With a Female Candidate
Remember Carly Fiorina?
MSNBC anchor Kate Snow falsely claimed in an interview Monday that Donald Trump has never appeared on a debate stage with a woman.
Snow was interviewing Steve Cortes, a Trump campaign surrogate, about the Republican nominee’s debate night strategy when she made the statement
‘Hillary, you’re bought and paid for’: Clinton’s top super PAC founder offers Trump debate zinger
DAVID BROCK IS STILL A SLIMY PUNK
When it was Brock’s turn to rattle off a zinger, he offered advice to both presidential nominees, telling Clinton to emphasize Trump’s eyebrow-raising ties to Russia, and advising Trump to highlight Clinton’s relationship with rich campaign donors.
“For Hillary, I’d say, ‘A vote for you is a vote for the ISIS terrorists and Vladimir Putin,’ and then open up both of those issues. Open up on investments from Russia. I think that would be effective,” Brock said.
He added: “For Trump I’m going to give an objective answer. I think he should say, ‘Hillary, you’re bought and paid for. You even came to my wedding because I gave you money.'”
Audience Breaks Rules, Cheers When Trump Mentions Deleted Hillary Emails
Holt asked Trump why he hasn’t released his tax returns, to which Trump asked why Hillary Clinton’s staff deleted 30,000 of her emails during her time in the State Department. As soon as he said the word “emails,” the audience cheered and applauded. Holt then reminded the crowd they are supposed to hold their applause until the end of the debate.
“I made a mistake and I take responsibility for using a private server,” Clinton responded.
“That’s for sure,” Trump agreed.
Omarosa Interviews Chris Hayes and Destroys Him
PUNK NEVER HAD A CHANCE
She told him to actually be a journalist.
“I challenge you to be a journalist tonight,” she said.
Hayes asked her if Trump will explain why he changed his stance on the birther issue during the first presidential debate on Monday.
“You know I find that to be a very interesting place for you to start, when there are so many issues that Americans are faced, including the economy, jobs, education, and you want to start with the birther,” she said. “The good thing is that he’s put that to bed and ready to move on.”
Hayes kept pushing the subject by telling her that Trump has spent five years going on about Obama’s birth place.
Manigault pointed out that he did acknowledge Obama is an American citizen and he’s going to move on from that and focus on issues.
Hayes was not going to take that answer.
Trump Camp Launches Ad Mocking Hillary Clinton for Asking Why She Isn’t 50 Points Ahead

Top climate skeptic to lead Trump’s EPA transition team
Myron Ebell, director of energy and environment policy at the conservative think tank Competitive Enterprise Institute, is heading Trump’s EPA transition preparation, E&E Daily reported Monday.
Ebell is an outspoken, longtime skeptic of the scientific consensus that human activity is dramatically changing the climate. He often refers to warnings about global warming as climate “alarmism” and is a vocal critic of President Obama’s climate change regulations.
Ebell has argued that the Clean Power Plan is illegal and that the Paris climate change agreement is unconstitutional.
Trump also doubts that human activity causes climate change.
