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.”

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.”

Organizer Of Protest That Left 5 Cops Dead Arrested For Felony Theft

Officers of the Dallas Police Department arrested Dominque Alexander on Thursday, the black activist that organized the 2016 anti-police protest in Dallas that left 12 officers shot and five dead.

Alexander faces charges of felony theft, stemming from a previous employer who claims the activist received payments between $2,500 and $30,000 from clients without transferring them to the company, the Dallas Observer reported.

Alexander pleaded guilty in 2009 to causing serious bodily injury to a 2-year-old and was subsequently sentenced to probation, FOX 4 Dallas reported. His repeated probation violations led to a final sentence of two years in prison in August 2016, but a judge counted his years of probation against his two-year sentence, and he spent less than a month in jail.

LESS THAN A MONTH!

[CtH: I sincerely hope that judge gets called to account by God for letting a child abuser walk!]

Michelle Obama outshines all Democratic prospects for 2020

As I’ve said before, the Democrats need an alternative plan to rebuild and unite the party if they have any hope in winning back seats in Congress in the 2018 midterms, nonetheless the White House in 2020.  This alternative plan requires a new, united opposition, led by a political leader with widespread popularity.  The only person I can see accomplishing this would be none other than the party’s most popular political figure: Michelle Obama.

Thrown off the gravy train: The new director takes a hard look at EPA boondoggles

Green groups are discovering that Donald Trump is not the same president as Barack Obama, whose EPA routinely engaged with them in corrupt deals flavored with an excess of sugar and grease.

The EPA had been awarding millions of dollars to environmental groups that could collect the swag by filing a law suit against the agency. “When the EPA settles or loses those suits, it then awards the groups millions more in attorneys’ fees under the Equal Access to Justice Act,” Walter Olson of the Cato Institute says.

Democrats’ top problem in 2018: The math is still against them
Failing to appeal to working-class voters in key states won by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama was a key part of Hillary Clinton’s downfall. But Hillary’s problem went well beyond swing states; it was national. Overall, Trump won 2,622 counties, while Clinton only carried 490.  Why does this matter? Because there are simply not enough coastal seats to be won for Democrats to win the House.

MSNBC: Menendez Can ‘Hang On’ to Senate Seat ‘Months’ After Corruption Conviction
“Chris Christie’s term is up…he will be out of the office by the second week of January. So if you were to get a conviction of Menendez in the near-term future, the challenge for Menendez…is could he hang on for a couple months until a Democrat becomes governor of New Jersey?,” Kornacki wondered. He assured the show’s liberal panelists: “I’m almost sure he would do this and I’m almost sure Democrats in the Senate would have his back in doing this.”

DeVos Takes on Lawless Campus Tribunals
According to a study released this week by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, 73.6 percent of America’s top universities don’t guarantee students a presumption of innocence, fewer than half require that fact-finders be impartial, and a full 58.5 percent of institutions don’t “provide students with a meaningful opportunity to cross-examine witnesses” in cases of sexual misconduct. And this is a partial list of university legal failures. All told, 45 of the 53 rated colleges received a “D” or “F” for their commitment to due process.

Brace Yourselves For IMPACT- Illegal Alien Sitcoms Headed To CBS And CW
The shows, entitled Have Mercy and Illegal (not exactly subtle) focus on illegal aliens who are struggling to achieve their full potential in the United States.

Have Mercy will air on CBS, and stars a Latina doctor who cannot practice medicine after immigrating to Miami. After being denied the RIGHT to pursue her life’s passion, the aforementioned doctor gets to work in a shabby, makeshift clinic as a way to give back to her community. How heartwarming.

Illegal, in contrast, stars a teenage boy who is struggling to come to terms with his family’s status as illegal immigrants while also staying in school, making good grades, and dealing with puberty and all of the wonderful things that accompany being a teenager.

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

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

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

Nikki Haley on Climate Agreement

Climate 5 years

Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., on Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement:

“We’ve always been a leader when it comes to the environment,” Haley said. “We don’t need India, and France, and China telling us what they think we should do.”

Kaos! Klimate Kooks Kry Kalamity!

Sometimes it appears Trump gets a sadistic kind of pleasure making liberals lose their minds. He announced yesterday the United States is pulling out of the phony climate agreement made by the FORMER preezy, who pledged billions of US taxpayer dollars to help third world toilets “fight the scourge of climate change.” China, by the way, has pledged zero dollars. Not dime one, and they along with India are two of the biggest polluters on the planet.
Predictably, the left is in total meltdown, since the climate hoax is one of their sacred cows. All these dumbasses are convinced the world will erupt in flames tomorrow. It would be humorous were it not so pathetic.

DIANNY’S TAKE, FROM PATRIOT RETORT:

I wanted to say a few things about President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord — AKA the World’s attempt to extort American taxpayers while killing American jobs.

But first, I thought I’d take you on a little trip down memory lane.

Come with me to late 2015, my friends.

Journey with me to Paris when these world leaders were playing Barack Obama like a cheap banjo.

Instead of representing the people of the United States, Obama bent over backwards and let these countries extort us with wild abandon.

And during a Paris press conference, Obama had this exchange with a reporter:

This “Paris Climate Accord” has nothing to do with saving the planet.

The purpose was clear from the start. It was the world’s attempt to extort us. Nothing more.

In ditching Paris deal, Trump does right by America and the world

In quitting the Paris Accord, President Trump on Thursday did nothing to shift the course of US environmental policy — not even on carbon emissions. But he did put the world on notice that no president can unilaterally commit this nation to such far-reaching agreements.

The Constitution is clear: No treaty is binding on the US government unless ratified by the Senate. That tanked the Kyoto Protocol, a 1997 anti-warming treaty that the Senate rejected 95-0. And it would’ve killed the Paris deal that President Obama signed in 2016 — except that his negotiators shaped an “agreement” that wouldn’t go to the Senate.

But one that still would’ve been used to rewrite US law, if the courts went along. (And a President Hillary Clinton’s judicial picks would have ensured that they did.)

Trump: Time to Put Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania Before Paris

President Donald Trump gave a shout-out to the “forgotten” industrial heartland that delivered him the White House as he announced America’s unilateral withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accords Thursday.
“I was elected to help the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” Trump told those gathered in the White House Rose Garden, as he gave a forceful economic-nationalist condemnation of the global climate agreement, under which the United States is to meet progressively lower caps on certain emissions while subsidizing developing countries in the hope they do the same.

‘Traitorous Act of War’: Liberals Angrily React to Trump Pulling Out of Paris Agreement

Billionaire environmentalist and Democratic donor Tom Steyer even said that Trump’s actions were an act of war against the American people.

COMPLETE LEFTIST MELTDOWN After Trump Dumps Paris Climate Accord
The White House audience today broke out in applause when President Trump announced the United States was withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord.
What a wonderful day for the American worker!
But not for liberal elites.
They suffered a COMPLETE MELTDOWN!

The cost of the climate deal was $3 trillion.
Trump decided to stand with the American worker and against globalist elites.

Democrats Plot ‘Revolution’ To Circumvent Trump’s Paris Decision

THAT’S FINE; THEY WON’T DO IT WITH FEDERAL MONEY.
New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio vowed to issue an executive order soon to honor the goals of the Paris accord, which is to keep future global warming below 2 degrees Celsius.

Democratic governors of California, New York and Washington also announced the creation of the United States Climate Alliance. Govs. Jerry Brown, Andrew Cuomo and Jay Inslee all vowed to meet the Paris Agreement goals.

“We will not ignore the science and reality of climate change which is why I am also signing an Executive Order confirming New York’s leadership role in protecting our citizens, our environment, and our planet,” Cuomo said.

“If the President is going to be AWOL in this profoundly important human endeavor, then California and other states will step up,” Brown said.

Environmentalists Call Trump’s Trashing Of Global Warming Deal A ‘Suicide Note For Earth’

“Donald Trump [is] issuing a suicide note for the rest of the world, including, ultimately, for the people of the United States, as well,” Kumi Naidoo, the former head of Greenpeace, told Democracy Now in an interview Thursday.

Trump announced Thursday he would withdraw the U.S. from the Paris accord, but he also said the U.S. may rejoin the agreement if they can get a fair deal. Environmentalists were still freaking out.

Enviro-Fraud and the Former Messiah

Thought I’d throw a couple different things together.

New Study Calls EPA’s Labeling Of CO2 A Pollutant ‘Totally False’


APPARENTLY 5 SUPREME COURT JUSTICES MISSED 9TH GRADE SCIENCE CLASS WHERE WE LEARNED CARBON DIOXIDE IS A TRACE ELEMENT, NOT A POLLUTANT!
The study claims to have “proven that it is all but certain that EPA’s basic claim that CO2 is a pollutant is totally false,” according to a press statement put out by Drs. Jim Wallace, John Christy, and Joe D’Aleo. Wallace, Christy and D’Aleo — a statistician, a climatologist and meteorologist, respectively — released a study claiming to invalidate EPA’s 2009 endangerment finding, which allowed the agency to regulate CO2 as a pollutant.

Former Obama Official: Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats To Influence Policy

COLOR ME SHOCKED
Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama’s administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion.
“What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data.

AFTER A 3 MONTH TOUR DE FORCE OF HOW TO SPONGE OFF RICH PEOPLE LIKE RICHARD BRANSON AND THE LATE MARLON BRANDO, BARACK H. OBAMA WILL NOW DELIVER A BRAVURA PERFORMANCE AS THE ULTIMATE HYPOCRITE TO THE MAVENS OF WALL STREET
Obama to net $400K for Wall Street speech: report
The former president’s reported speaking fee is nearly twice the price commanded by Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.
Obama reappeared on the public stage Monday, making his first public remarks since leaving the White House at the future site of his presidential library.
The former president did not mention President Trump or offer political commentary during his appearance at the University of Chicago.
http://thehill.com/homenews/news/330337-obama-to-net-400k-for-wall-street-speech-report

I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS ASSHAT ACTUALLY SAID THIS:
Josh Earnest: Obama will jump in and criticize the new administration if Trump crosses any, er, “red lines”
I know what you’re thinking because I’m thinking it too, as is everyone who worked for the Obama administration on foreign policy: “Since when does Obama enforce red lines?”
Actually I suspect you’ll find him enforcing lots of moral “red lines” in the future, now that all that’s required of him is giving a speech to an adoring media peppered with lots of that’s-not-who-we-ares. That was 80 percent of his presidency but it’ll be 99 percent of his retirement.
Enjoy the irony of Earnest flagging as an example of a “red line” any potential efforts by Team Trump to start rounding up and deporting DREAMers. I … don’t think you need to worry, Josh. Things change but DACA stays the same!

Obama Uses Race Card To Take Shot At Hillary Clinton

I’M PRETTY SURE THESE TWO MEGALOMANIACS HAVE DESPISED EACH OTHER FROM THE GET-GO
Obama was telling the panel about how he visited with at-risk youth on Sunday ahead of his appearance at the University of Chicago.
“If the six of you had been in that conversation, you would have come away not saying ‘these are some thugs or super-predators that I can’t relate to.’ You’d actually say, ‘man, if I had gone through what they went through I’m not sure how things would have worked out me either,’” Obama told the panel.
Obama choice of the term “super-predator” is an apparent reference to comments that Hilary Clinton made in 1996 that caused a considerable backlash in both of the Clintons’ presidential campaigns.

SPEAKING OF SUPER PREDATORS (THAT’S CALLED A SEGUE):
Up to 60 Teens Swarm San Francisco Commuter Train, Robbing and Beating Passengers
Officials say the robbery was planned like a Blitzkrieg with the teens swarming the station, forcing the traindoors open, rushing into the train and robbing passengers, and then disappearing into an East Oakland neighborhood — all in a matter of minutes.
The teens exited the train and disappeared into the surrounding East Oakland neighborhood.
Police will not release the video or still shots of the surveillance for fear that some of the suspects are minors
Whenever someone complains about the media blackout on the racial makeup of criminals and thugs, the response is usually something like “it’s not relevant to the story” or “we don’t want to upset the local minority community by appearing to single out criminals.”
My response is always: How can the race of the perpetrator not be relevant to the story? Or the race of the victim for that matter.

3 arrested after mob attacks officers at California college event

As the officers got out of the car, two officers were attacked by several people and beaten on the ground
THANKS TO BROTHER BARACK, THEY AIN’T SCARED OF THE PO-LEECE NO ‘MO

Three men were arrested following an attack on Davis police officers who encountered a group of people blocking traffic on a busy roadway during Saturday’s Picnic Day at UC Davis.
The annual campus open house has become known in recent years for violence and drunken mayhem, mainly on the streets of the normally quiet college town.
A hostile group quickly surrounded the vehicle. Several people began yelling threats at the officers in the car, and one person pretended he was pulling a gun on the officers, the news release said.
As the officers got out of the car and began to identify themselves as police, two officers were attacked by several people and beaten on the ground. Police reported that the officers were kicked and punched in the head, and one officer was struck on the side of the head with a bottle.
As they were being assaulted, the officers could see people in the crowd taking video of the attack on their cell phones, according to the news release.

Taxifornia Committing Suicide

Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. California has a certifiably insane governor and hordes of clueless nitwits infected by the scourge of liberalism. As Jesus said, “Father, forgive them. They know not what they do.”
They know what they do, they just don’t realize the consequences for their actions… or don’t care. It is unfortunate that the rational people of the state are compelled to suffer along with the young and the feckless.

Taxifornia Does It Again

Taxation: California’s far-left government has done it again. Not realizing its real problems are excessive spending on misplaced priorities, excessive taxes, too much debt and a far-too generous welfare state, its legislature working in cahoots with Gov. Jerry “tax-and-spend” Brown has pushed through the largest tax hike in state history.

In California’s one-party state — everything in the state, everything, is controlled by the Democratic Party and its union allies — the governor and legislature rushed through a massive tax hike on gas and diesel fuel along with higher car registration fees with hardly anyone realizing it.

The state’s already highest-in-the-nation gasoline tax will rise 19.5 cents a gallon, while diesel will go up 20 cents. Meanwhile, car owners will also see their registration fees rise from $25 to $175, depending on vehicle value. Electric car owners get hit with a special $100 tax, since they don’t use gasoline.

All told, the new taxes are expected to collect $5.2 billion a year.

Nearly $1 billion in side deals cemented legislative vote to raise California’s gas tax
“Democrats just gave us the largest gas tax increase in state history — a deal so bad they needed $1 billion in pork to buy the votes to pass it,” said Assembly Republican leader Chad Mayes of Yucca Valley. “California deserves better.”
Similar proposals have languished for years, but Brown and legislative leaders set a quick-turn April 6 deadline for action, hoping to pressure a compromise before the Legislature’s spring break — ahead of big debates to come in 2017 on the state budget and hundreds of bills.
http://www.sfexaminer.com/nearly-1-billion-side-deals-cemented-legislative-vote-raise-californias-gas-tax/

Republican Backed Jerry Brown’s Gas Tax for $400 Million Pork Project

One of the more prominent deals was the one that secured the vote of State Sen. Anthony Canella (R-Ceres), who was the only Republican in either chamber to support the measure, which includes raised fees at the Department of Motor Vehicles.

That side deal turns out to have been the costliest of all, amounting to $400 million in pork for “the extension of the Altamont Corridor Express, a commuter rail line between the Bay Area and Central Valley.”

Canella’s vote was crucial, because moderate State Sen. Steve Glazer (D-Orinda) opposed the gas tax, explaining in a statement published by the East Bay Times that it was unnecessary to raise taxes rather than re-directing spending from the costly high-speed rail project.
There are no moderates in California…they just all come with different price tags

California’s Super-Bloom Endangered by Special Snowflakes

The significant winter rains that California has experienced this year has led Governor Jerry Brown to declare the official drought officially over:

Startlingly green hills, surging rivers and the snow-wrapped Sierra Nevada had already signaled what Gov. Jerry Brown made official Friday: The long California drought is over.

However, the state’s nature lovers are failing to follow some common sense rules related to enjoying the beauty and are trampling over the delicate flowers they have flocked to admire.

One of the most spectacular areas is the Wildflower Trail at Diamond Valley Lake, which is a reservoir outside Hemet. A portion of the trail was shut down March 29 and was reopened Wednesday, just five days a week. Extra staff has been added to the area to police visitors, and new signs warn people to stay on the trails.

“It happened sort of suddenly, people started disregarding the rules and trail guides,” Picht told the Los Angeles Times. “You can’t really blame them, but at the same time, we couldn’t allow that.”

In other words, these special snowflakes are killing the flowers.
