Friday Catch All

Been spending most of my days sleeping. Thought I’d clear some things out before I take another nap. Did I mention that retirement has its good points?

Brooklyn Assemblywoman Pamela Harris stole tens of thousands in Hurricane Sandy money for vacations, lingerie

As Coney Island neighbors and the rest of the city struggled with the massive 2012 devastation, Harris lined her pockets with cash meant to aid the hurricane’s newly homeless, a federal indictment charges.

Harris spent $10,000 on vacations, including a cruise ship getaway, and shopped at Victoria’s Secret with her dirty money, authorities charged Tuesday.

And she allegedly urged witnesses to lie to the FBI in a failed cover-up of her crimes.
Harris looted some $60,000 in state and federal funds in several scams, including Federal Emergency Management Agency money for “temporary housing assistance” after the hurricane, officials charged.

Harris, 57, is a former correction officer and previously served as head of a Coney Island non-profit. She was accused of stealing $34,000 in cash provided by the City Council to pay rent for her group.

NYC Mayor to sue “Big Oil” for causing Hurricane Sandy or something

Many people still foolishly blame things like lightning strikes, tornadoes, tsunamis and hurricanes on the random vagaries of fate or simply describe them as acts of God. But not the intrepid Mayor of New York City, who apparently also doubles as a sleuth in his spare time. He’s been investigating the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy for half a decade now, seeking out the cause of the storm. And now he’s cracked the case, determining that the lethal storm which wrecked large parts of the northeast was caused by a coalition of five energy companies. And by God, he’s suing them over it.

Report: Frustrated Trump asks senators, why are we letting people in from “sh*thole countries”?

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday.

And just an fyi, notice the source: a Democratic aide who wasn’t even in the meeting.
Three guesses that this gets pulled back or the real story comes out later. But in the meantime, they’ll spread the ‘source’ said story.

CNN Goes Off on a Sh*thole Sh*tstorm: Mentions “Sh*thole” at least 36 Times in One Night

On Thursday afternoon President Donald Trump asked a group of pro-amnesty senators why the US should welcome migrants from “sh*tholes” like Haiti, Central America or African nations.

It was a good question.

But Democrats, liberal media and global community were outraged that the president would use such an offensive term to describe the global community’s failed states.

The hosts and contributors on CNN went on a sh*thole sh*tstorm last night.  The word “sh*thole” was mentioned at least 36 times on CNN on Thursday

RINO Jeff Flake Announces ‘Gang of 6’ Have Reached a DACA Amnesty Agreement

Flake is an anti-Trump pro-amnesty Republican.  He is not running for reelection this year in Arizona.

WHY IS HE STILL HERE?

The Gang of Six includes Republicans Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, Corey Gardner, and Democrats Dick Durbin, Michael Bennet, and Robert Menendez.  The three Republicans also are top anti-Trumpers.

Democratic Congresswomen Will Wear Black at Trump’s State of the Union to Protest Sexual Assualt

IF THEY WORE HIJABS OVER THEIR HEADS IT WOULD BE FINE WITH ME

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), along with the Democratic Women’s Working Group, is calling on the men and women in Congress to wear black to President Trump’s upcoming State of the Union address in solidarity with the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements against sexual harassment.

[CtH: I’d be more impressed if they wore black to protest all the lives that have been damaged and destroyed by perps forcing abortions on their victims to cover up sex crimes.]

Dems Admit They Need Illegals For Their Votes

Leaked memo reveals they are fighting to make the DREAMer nightmare permanent.

Republicans may not be angels but they have never wielded compassion as a cudgel the way Democrats do. But this memo ought to end Democrats’ phony compassion shtick for all time. Power is the only thing that matters to them. They don’t care about America or Americans. They care only about winning. Honest observers have known this for years.
What did Democrats actually do this time to help solidify their image as the party of power over principle?

Democrats can’t win elections without cheating. They pushed the 1993 Motor-Voter law to make voter fraud easy to commit and difficult to prosecute. They oppose voter ID laws tooth-and-nail for the same reason. They changed immigration laws a long time ago so they could change the electorate by importing new voters.

Don Lemon: Trump Is a Racist

[CtH: Except for the part where he isn’t.  And, oh by the way, blacks and Hispanics currently have the lowest unemployment in recorded history … though, I suppose in Nancy Pelosi’s scrambled noggin, is proof positive that Trump is racist.]

Nancy Pelosi Scoffs At ‘Crumb’ Bonuses By U.S. Companies As A Result Of Tax Cuts

“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic. It’s so pathetic,” the California Democrat said.

THEY MAY BE “CRUMBS TO A MULTI MILLIONAIRE, BUT A FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS TO HELP MAKE ENDS MEET IS NOT INSIGNIFICANT TO WORKING PEOPLE.

[CtH: I still remember when Michelle Obama sneered at Bush’s $600 tax rebates saying, “What can you do with $600? You buy one pair of earrings and it’s gone.”]

Report: Over 300 Labor Union Offices Have Embezzled Money Across The Country

The Detroit Free Press obtained documents from the Department of Labor that in the past two years, over 300 labor union chapters have detected fraud. Two cases with the United Auto Workers Union in Michigan and New Jersey had embezzling episodes that soared over $1 million. The Free Press added that at times, some people who have been tasked with looking after the books were simply not qualified for the job, some cases they were headed up by people who couldn’t balance their own checkbook.

Thursday Mashup

Just a smorgasbord of things today.

My stepson is 36 and he and some of his friends were on Facebook yesterday talking about “the old days” and how good things were back then. Being the old grump I am, with all my filters long since gone,  I had to inject myself. I simply commented that they weren’t old enough to have any ‘good old days’ yet. But wait, it will come faster than they could ever imagine.

Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey Storm Al Franken’s Office Demanding His Resignation
Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey stormed Senator Al Franken’s D.C. office Wednesday, demanding the embattled lawmaker resign over multiple sexual harassment allegations against him. Reporter Melanie Morgan, a Franken accuser, joined Broaddrick and Willey. Of course, Broaddrick and Willey are two of former President Bill Clinton’s most famous accusers.
After a few minutes of waiting for Franken, Morgan shouts, “Don’t be a coward, come out and talk to us!”
“Speak to us! We have something to say to you!” Morgan says.
Franken’s handlers then tell the women that he’s busy and will not have time to meet with them, prompting Morgan to recount allegations against the then-comedian. Franken allegedly stalked Morgan after they disagreed on the OMB’s budget numbers during a taping of ABC’s late night show Politically Incorrect in 2000.
Capitol Hill police then show up to Franken’s office, demanding the group of women leave.
“This is a place of business,” the officers say.
THE LITTLE WEASEL WAS HIDING BEHIND THE DOOR

Destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism: Trump Hits Back At Theresa May
May condemned Trump earlier Wednesday for retweeting three videos from the right-wing group Britain First that purported to show Muslims attacking Europeans, breaking a statue of the Virgin Mary, and beating someone to death.
Trump retweeting these videos has lead to a firestorm of media criticism. MSNBC labelled Britain First a “white nationalist” group continuously throughout the day.
CNN’s Dana Bash also claimed that the “only people who are supporting what the president did are racists and fascists and bigots,” something that gave her a literal “stomach ache.”
THEY KEEP REFERRING TO BRITAIN FIRST AS A “FAR-RIGHT” GROUP AND CLAIM THESE VIDEOS ARE FAKE.
EUROPE STILL REFUSES TO ACCEPT THAT THEIR WELCOMING IN MILLIONS OF THESE MURDEROUS PIGS WILL END IN THEIR DESTRUCTION.

President Trump: ‘Investigate’ Joe Scarborough’s Dead Congressional Intern
THIS WAS A STUPID MOVE. ON A DAY IT WAS ANNOUNCED THE GDP HIT 3.3%, WHICH HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN TOUTING, HE’S GIVING CREDIBILITY TO SOMEONE MOST PEOPLE HAVE NEVER HEARD OF.
“So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?” Trump tweeted, adding, “And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”
http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2017/11/29/president-trump-investigate-joe-scarboroughs-dead-congressional-intern/

Tired of all the winning? 3Q GDP revised upward to higher than expected 3.3%
Yet there is a connection. The free market is happily responding to thousands and thousands of regulations being cut, an end to business being targeted as the enemy, and the prospect of fairer taxes. What it means is jobs, jobs, jobs, and lots of investment bringing more growth.
The Obama years were years of subpar growth, where GDP never broke the 3.0% growth line in any quarter. Averaged in with the Beltway bureaucrat bonanza, the weak, anemic Obama-era figures reflect how much was lost around the rest of the country – as money went to Washington, and voters grew poorer. This is the cash the Ohios, the West Virginias, the Pennsylvanias – and other neglected states – sent, virtually all of whose voters defiantly cast their ballots in 2016 for Trump.
It’s what normal people call change.

Case shows judges matter

“A U.S. District Court judge in Washington on Tuesday handed a big victory to President Donald Trump, ruling in favor of the administration in its bid to install White House budget director Mick Mulvaney as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau,” Politico reported this evening.
When Trump took office, he issued two executive orders to halt travel with seven, and then six, countries. Obama appointees blocked the orders. The Supreme Court eventually stepped in and let the orders go through, unmolested.
That was judicial activism. Those Obama-nauts exceeded their authority.
I keep bringing up judicial appointments because unfortunately the courts have become the dominant branch of the federal government

Members Of Congress And Media “Stunned” That Trump Is Still Standing & Fighting Back
He wasn’t supposed to win. But he did.
He wasn’t supposed to have survived the onslaught of media backlash since taking office. But he has.

“Well, he’s a little obsessed with me, but I think it’s partly his own ego because he knows I got more votes and he knows that there are questions about the election that deserve answers,” Clinton said in the interview. “And he knows I’m still speaking out, I haven’t retreated under a rock somewhere.”

Another top House Democrat took $50K from taxpayers to keep a former staffer quiet
Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva’s secret deal with a former female staffer was revealed by The Washington Times on Monday. The payout was negotiated by the House Employment Counsel, the body’s attorney, and cost taxpayers $48,395.
The settlement, however, may have violated House rules, The Times reported. It’s against House rules for a lawmaker to retain “an employee who does not perform duties for the offices of the employing authority commensurate with the compensation such employee receives.”

How Hateful Are the Democrats? This Hateful

WHEN I WROTE A POST THE OTHER DAY COMPARING THE TWO WHITE HOUSES, I KNEW SHE WOULD BE SAVAGED BY THE SAME PRESS THAT CALLED THE WATER BUFFALO A “FASHION ICON.”

You can’t make this stuff up: Vogue, a reliable Democratic Party outlet, has gone crazy over First Lady Melania Trump’s White House Christmas decorations:
Melania Trump unveiled the White House holiday decorations on Monday, which are, as some people on the internet have noticed, very, very white.
White decorations at Christmas? The horror!
This is truly beyond the pale: In a year during which many have speculated that Melania hates her husband and does not want to be First Lady at all (a claim that has recently resurfaced), Melania’s White House Christmas could be interpreted as a snowy and desolate manifestation of her own isolation, which begs the question: Is she trying to tell us something?
You have to see it for yourself, or you would never believe how nutty–speaking of mental institutions–today’s Democrats have become.
Vogue goes on to assemble some of the “best reactions to Melania’s White House creations.” All of which are sick. Here is just one example:

Reports: The U.S. Embassy Move to Jerusalem is Happening
ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS I THOUGHT ABOUT THE NIGHT WE WERE DELIVERED FROM TYRANNY WAS HOW IT LIFTED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHO SUFFERED UNDER THE DISDAIN FROM A PRESIDENT WHO HATED THEM JUST AS MUCH AS HE HATED WHITE AMERICANS
Israeli officials are reportedly expecting US President Donald Trump to make a landmark announcement in the coming days regarding the move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognizing the highly-sensitive holy city as Israel’s capital, according to a local TV report on Wednesday.
The report comes just a day after Trump’s vice-president Mike Pence stated that the President was “actively considering” how and when to move the US embassy.

Team Hillary Clinton cheers Matt Lauer’s firing, says he was mean to her
Another person whose interview with Trump was ridiculously soft and interview with Hillary was incredibly tough: Matt Lauer,” tweeted former Clinton aide Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress.
Lauer came under fire from Team Clinton after he repeatedly pressed the Democratic presidential nominee in a live candidate forum about her controversial emails sent as secretary of state through a private server.
His tactics were called sexist.

CNN’s Jim Acosta ROASTED for Fake ‘Fact Check’ About ‘Pocahontas’ Being a Racial Slur
CNN’s Jim Acosta never learns. Instead of reporting the facts, something Acosta’s network is challenged at doing, the “reporter,” tries to play ‘Mr. Moral Authority,’ and fails every single time.
After Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied the term ‘Pocahontas,’ used by the President in reference to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at an event with Navajo Code Talkers, Acosta ‘fact checked,’ that the term is in fact racist. Acosta provided no proof of a fact check, of course.
“WH press sec says “Pocahontas” is not a racial slur. (Fact check: it is.),” tweeted Acosta.
After Acosta’s non-existent fact check, he was roasted on Twitter.

In Case You’re Not Keeping Up

There’s a battle raging in D.C. that you may not be aware of or even fully understand. Here’s an attempt to simplify things a bit.

Consumer Protection Finance Bureau … that’s the last time I type that because pecking away at this keyboard I’m 8 thumbs and two middles fingers. Henceforth it is now simply CFPB.

This dirty little deed came about during the Dodd-Frank disaster that ruined the economy and led to the ascent of one Barack Obama. Lieawatha Warren was once the head of this thing.

Rush can summarize it far better than I can:

Democrats Set Up Unconstitutional CFPB to Launder Money for Liberal Causes

 

Rush:  The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This is another little liberal enclave that was established by liberal Democrats, including Elizabeth Warren, that was set up as an agency that was unaccountable to anyone. It even had a budget that was unaccountable to the U.S. budget. Barney Frank and Chris Dodd set this thing up and Elizabeth Warren was the real driver of this particular organization, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

This was an independent agency set up to be able to legally get money from the financial industry and then turn around and give it to left-wing activist groups. And that’s what they were doing with it. And that’s why they are so desperate to hold on to it. The point is, it’s unconstitutional, and that’s the only thing that matters.

RICHARD CORDRAY, WHO IS STEPPING DOWN TO RUN FOR GOVERNOR OF OHIO, ILLEGALLY APPOINTED HIS UNDERLING, LEANDRA ENGLISH, AS ACTING DIRECTOR.  HE HAS NO AUTHORITY TO DO THAT.

Rush:  There’s something called the Federal Vacancies Reform Act which allows the president, who runs the executive branch, to appoint successors to people in federal agencies under the executive branch umbrella leaving. This thing was set up to be an independent agency accountable to no one. Its very existence is unconstitutional. The left knows it. That’s why they’re hell-bent, Cordray named this Leandra English to succeed him.

The money went to unions. The money went to states and teachers and union members to keep them employed during the Great Recession. The reason for that is, those people need to be employed in order to pay union dues. Union dues are collected from what they make and are sent in a circuitous route back to the Democrat Party in the form of campaign donations. So the stimulus was a substitute for Obama walking over to the Treasury and writing a check for $800 billion to the Democrat National Committee.

Consumer Bureau execs, workers gave 593 donations to Democrats, 1 to GOP

A quick count of donations found:

•$46,611 to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
•$13,190 to Sen Elizabeth Warren.
•$19,988 to President Obama.
•$10,075 to Democratic campaign committees.
•$1,129 to Sen. Bernie Sanders.

CFPB Joins Justice In Shaking Down Banks For Democrat Activist Groups
The CFPB plans to create a so-called Civil Penalty Fund from its own shakedown operations targeting financial institutions. Through ramped-up (and trumped-up) anti-discrimination lawsuits and investigations, the agency will bankroll some 60 liberal nonprofits, many of whom are radical Acorn-style pressure groups. It says these organizations will provide “financial coaching” for low-income homebuyers, as well as “housing and social services.”

Obama’s Department of Housing and Urban Development is also getting in on the act.

In a $200 million settlement with Associated Bank, which the agency accused of lending discrimination, HUD is forcing the Wisconsin bank to funnel tens of millions in “donations” to “community groups.”

This is extortion of private business by government. Congress’ new leadership must call on the agency’s inspector general and the Government Accountability Office to audit these pernicious payola schemes.

https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/cfpb-diverts-civil-penalty-funds-to-democrat-activist-groups/

It turns out that Cordray, quite illegally, on his way out named his deputy, Leandra English, as the temporary director. When Mulvaney arrived at work Monday morning, he was forced to issue a memo saying “Please disregard any instructions you receive from Ms. English in her presumed capacity as acting director.”

Who is Deepak Gupta? Ex-CFPB employee emerges as leading anti-Trump litigator

Secret Donors Are Financing Leandra English Lawsuit Against Trump

The D.C. lawyer appeared caught off guard when CNBC hosts asked who was financing his effort. He stumbled over his words in his first answer and said some form of unidentified “structure” was being put in place to accept funds from anonymous donors.

“Well, uh, it’s, it’s not, um, Miss, um English, um, ah. There are ethics lawyers that we’ve consulted, and we have a structure set up that is with ethics rules and, um, we’ll and we’ll be talking about that once we have that,” he told CNBC.

Elizabeth Warren leads protest to block Trump’s CFPB appointment

The CFPB, an agency created by the Dodd-Frank banking law that passed during former President Barack Obama’s first term, has become the focal point of a new fight over presidential authority in recent days

Maria Langholz of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, which helped organize the Tuesday protest, added in a statement that “Trump is trying to undermine the CFPB by breaking the rules to install a guy who is wholly unfit for the office and has numerous conflicts of interest.”

The CFPB Coup Attempt Is Over, Court Rules In Favor Of Trump Administration

A U.S. District Court judge in Washington handed a big victory to President Donald Trump, ruling in favor of the administration in its bid to install White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Judge Timothy Kelly denied a request by Leandra English, who was named last week as acting director by outgoing CFPB chief Richard Cordray, for a temporary restraining order to block Mulvaney from taking the post.

Kelly said there was not a substantial likelihood that the case would succeed on its merits.

CFPB Acting Director Mick Mulvaney Orders 30-Day Hiring, Regulatory Freeze

Mulvaney declared that President Trump “wants me to get it [the agency] back to the point where it can protect people without trampling on capitalism.”

The hiring freeze came amidst a feud between current director Mulvaney and deputy director Leandra English, an Obama-era appointee to the CFPB, who argued that she remains the rightful director of the financial regulatory agency.

Who Knew?

At some point, exactly when is unknown as far as I can tell, the slime merchants who infest Washington, D.C., who laughingly refer to themselves as “representatives of the people” knew to concoct something called an Office of Compliance, funded with taxpayer dollars to pay off the victims that they pinch, paw and fondle on a regular basis. The numbers that have been made public say that 256 victims have been paid over $16 million to date.

These victims have little choice except to take the money and sign the standard ‘confidentiality agreement.’ If they report the molester, they get exposed, the big shot goes to trial (maybe) and gets no punishment. Meanwhile, the victim resigns/gets fired and is left with nothing and no future. The ones with the power hold all the cards. They know it, which is why they act with such blatant disregard for the laws they write to make everyone else follow.

If the Weinstein case had come up in January of 2016, Donald Trump may never have been elected president. Considering the ferocity the leftists/media/DC elite are assaulting Roy Moore, how many phony “victims” could they have created to smear Trump? That’s all you would have heard about. Media whores are experts at putting pressure on republicans, regardless of how obviously unfounded the accusations may be. The abuse by the powerful of those they prey upon has been happening for a very long time and will certainly continue unabated, if unreported. As the old saying goes: power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

The Party of Women: Dem Rep Says Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Conyers ‘Could Be Made Up’
Republicans and Democrats are in the crosshairs. Liberal media figures have also fallen. Yet, the Left is still engaging in the Bill Clinton protocol, circling the wagons and trying to downplay the accusations. Right now, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has four women, two of which wish to remain anonymous, alleging that he groped them.

The other Democrat in the news is Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), who has had sexual misconduct allegations lobbed against him, with financial settlements providing a paper trail of possible bad behavior.

HE PAID OFF ONE VICTIM WITH $27,000 FROM HIS BUDGET ALLOWANCE, SO BASICALLY IT CAME OUT OF YOUR POCKET, NOT HIS.

“You can’t jump to conclusions with these types of things,” Clyburn said, despite the documented complaints. “For all I know, all of this could be made up.”

John Conyers Admits To Settling Sexual Harassment Case, Denies Wrongdoing + Charlie Rose Fired

Watch how Charlie Rose covered sexual harassment

Wait—isn’t the rule that all women should be believed no matter what? Is Clyburn suggesting that some due process should be involved in these cases? Isn’t this part of the “war on women”?

Sex abuse allegations expose the media’s hypocrisy on Trump

“Not every horny narcissist with bad judgment is named Donald Trump.”

That was the actual “reportage” of New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush last year, in an article referring to the online sexual exploits of former congressman Anthony Weiner.

It appears, in retrospect, that Thrush might well have been describing himself.

Al Franken’s Newest Excuse For Groping Allegations: ‘I Hug People’
Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken’s latest excuse for the groping allegations against him is that he is a “warm person” who likes to “hug people.”

Some women have found my greetings or embraces for a hug or photo inappropriate, and I respect their feelings about that. I’ve thought a lot in recent days about how that could happen, and recognize that I need to be much more careful and sensitive in these situations.”

TRANSLATION: ‘I’M NOT GOING ANYWHERE SO YOU CAN ALL GO F**K YOURSELVES.’

[CtH: Yeah, cuz “hugs” always include woodies and tongues. smh]

Dem Rep: ‘No Offense,’ But Ethics Committee Investigations Aren’t Going to Help

Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) is so far the only Democratic representative brave enough to demand Rep. John Conyers’s (D-MI) resign over sexual assault allegations.

“No offense,” she told her colleagues, but their efforts are not going to result in any real accountability.

THE FACTS ARE DEMOCRATS HAVE NO MORALS, NEVER CLAIMED TO HAVE. FOR THE MOST PART THEIR VOTERS ONLY CARE ABOUT KEEPING THE FREE STUFF FLOWING. CIVILIZED BEHAVIOR IS NOT REQUIRED NOR EXPECTED.

[CtH: I don’t EVER want to hear another word about the Roman Catholic Church’s sex abuse issue.  The RCC instituted zero tolerance rules in every parish.  (Mama Buzz had to have a background check done on her before she could ASSIST in a Sunday School class room.)  AND they have OUTSIDE auditors ensuring that every part of the American Catholic Church is in compliance.]

Brain Droppings

It seemed an appropriate title since most of the ideas my brain concocts are crap anyway. Being heavily medicated, this diatribe will likely ramble from one drug-addled thought to another.

It is heartbreaking to watch what’s being done to Judge Moore. The accusers come crawling out from under their rocks to make scurrilous accusations with no proof. They don’t need any. The republican standard is they must be able to prove their innocence beyond a doubt, otherwise they’re assumed guilty.

My prediction: despite the massive assault on a good man, I think he will prevail December 12. This will turn out to be an exercise in futility because there’s no way that prick McConnell is going to seat him. The fix has been in since he beat Mitchy’s boot licker Luther Strange in the republican primary. He’s enjoying the full cooperation of his democrat friends and there’s no way he’ll be allowed into their club.

Moore is down to having one supporter in the senate: Rand Paul. Cruz pulled his endorsement Monday and I’m not going to bother listing all the other who have run like the yellow dog cowards they are. This is nothing new for republicans. In 1973 Nixon may have survived the Watergate mess, but his own party leaders slithered in to the Oval Office and said he was going to face impeachment and they weren’t going to stop it.

When Newt Gingrich and the House GOP impeached that sociopathic rapist Bill Clinton, Senate Majority leader Trent Lott told them not to bother bringing it to the senate holy chambers because they didn’t want anything to do with it. The democrats had earlier whined that he should be merely reprimanded… made to stand in the well of the senate while people shook their fingers and scolded him for being so naughty. When you’re dealing with a sociopath there’s nothing you can do or say that would affect them. Like a mass murderer standing before a judge, staring, cold as ice, no feeling whatever. The GOP only got 47 votes to convict. They lost a number of their own party. I can’t recall, but I’d be willing to bet these two both voted no:

Deliberations in the Menendez trial continue today. They cannot come to a decision on any of the 12 counts against him. My prediction: there’s a democrat plant on the jury who will not vote to convict on a single charge, regardless of the evidence. The jury will hang, a mistrial will be declared. This smarmy little punk will strut back into the senate chambers to a standing ovation from his buddies. He’ll proudly announce: “They didn’t lay a glove on me!!”

Jury Deadlocked in Democrat Sen. Menendez Corruption Case, Deliberations to Continue

YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST… HE’S GOING TO GET AWAY WITH IT. DEMOCRATS ALWAYS DO.

Trump White House officials are considering replacing Jeff Sessions with Judge Roy Moore, installing the Attorney General back to his former Senate seat.

 

The Daily Caller reported a DOJ official and another source close to Sessions both shot down the idea that the attorney general wants to return to his Senate seat.
Sessions has made noises about appointing a second special counsel to investigate the Clintons and Uranium One.

My money says it will not happen and he wants to remain AG so he can better protect his democrat colleagues.

I find it depressing thinking of how many hours we spent doing research at the library for term papers, doing math problems where the teacher demanded that you SHOW YOUR WORK. All that knowledge, all that discipline. Nowadays any 12 year old can be just as informed by googling every damn thing they need to know. No muss, no fuss. I recall some college snowflakes demanded they be given their final exams to take home and work on where they can get all the answers and simply copy and paste. No imagination or skill necessary. There’s an awful lot of people on the internet, hiding behind their monitors, who pretend they know sheep shit from apple butter, when they’d be exposed as babbling morons without Google to give them all the answers.

Kaepernick is the piece of garbage that started the whole kneeling for the National Anthem last year. The league did nothing about it and it has festered this year until viewership dropped precipitously. And he still doesn’t have a job.

GQ Names Kaepernick ‘Citizen of the Year.’ Seriously.

The best part of this editorial tongue bath is the “ten-person team of his closest confidants” who briefly tell readers just how awesomely woke and caring and brave and caring and righteous and caring this journeyman QB-turned SJW all-star really is.

Incomprehensible Corruption

Not only did Obama and Clinton conspire to sell 20% of our precious uranium to the Russians, but Hillary and the DNC funded the phony Russian Dossier they intended to bring Trump down with. As yet, the networks have strenuously ignored all of this. Whether they ever will remains to be seen. My money says they won’t. Baghdad Bob had nothing on this scum.

NYT Reporter: Clinton Campaign Lawyer ‘Vigorously’ Denied Being Behind Dossier

Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias “vigorously” denied his involvement in the anti-Trump dossier that has made up the substance of the Russian collusion allegations, New York Times reporter Ken Vogel said.

Elias’ denial appears to have been intentionally misleading in light of new reporting from The Washington Post that Elias hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Elias reportedly hired Fusion to dig up dirt on Trump as part of a project that became the Trump dossier.

Clinton campaign, DNC paid for research that led to Russia dossier

The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said.

Christopher Steele, former British intelligence officer pictured in London on March 7, 2017, compiled the dossier on Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/clinton-campaign-dnc-paid-for-research-that-led-to-russia-dossier/ar-AAu0xVg?ocid=UE12DHP

The Trump dossier was Clinton’s dirtiest political trick

Now it’s Democrats’ turn in the barrel.

The explosive report in the Washington Post goes a long way to explaining how the dossier was so widely spread among political reporters during the election. The Clinton camp must have passed it out like Halloween candy to its media handmaidens.

The Post report provides possible answers to other questions, too. Because Clinton’s team paid for the dossier, it’s likely that she gave it to the FBI, where James Comey planned to hire the former British agent who had compiled it to keep digging dirt on Trump.

Sean Hannity: “People Will Be Going to Jail” Over Uranium One Scandal

I’VE NEVER WAVERED AN IOTA. SOME LOW LEVEL FLUNKIE MAY BE SACRIFICED. BUT NO ONE WILL EVER CONVINCE ME ANY OF THESE CRIMINALS WILL EVER ANSWER FOR ANY FILTHY DEED THEY’VE PULLED. IT JUST WON’T HAPPEN. REPUBLICANS DON’T HAVE THE GUTS.

The Post reported that Clinton campaign and DNC lawyer Marc Elias and his law firm Perkins Coie paid Fusion GPS to continue researching Trump after a Republican donor who originally funded the research pulled out in April 2016.

Sean Hannity: Here’s my prediction tonight. People will be going to jail over this… Congress has a duty, a moral obligation, you can’t have a dual justice system.

[CtH: I’m still hoping that prophet I saw on Sid Roth, who said high level Democrats will be going to jail proves to have been right.  I’m so SICK of these people getting away with this stuff! ]

GOP investigates Russian granted US entry by Obama administration while under FBI investigation for bribery

The Obama administration awarded a visa allowing a top Russian nuclear executive to enter the United States after the FBI had already gathered substantial evidence he was involved in a racketeering scheme involving bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering, court records show.

Emails: Obama DOJ Officials Sought to Route ‘Slush Fund’ Cash to Orgs of Their ‘Choosing’

Emails also show effort to exclude conservative causes

Former President Obama’s Department of Justice sought to route settlement money to organizations of their “choosing” while seeking to exclude conservative groups, documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

The practice in question began in August 2014 when the Justice Department entered into a $17-billion settlement with Bank of America for selling residential mortgage-backed securities leading up to the 2008 financial collapse. Similar arrangements were made with J.P Morgan Chase and Citigroup that brought the total amount to $36.65 billion.

PERHAPS NO ONE WILL EVER TRULY KNOW JUST WHAT A LAWLESS AND CORRUPT MOB THE OBAMA SYNDICATE REALLY WAS.

Democrats Sink To New Low in Favorability Polls
The strategy of resistance, obstruction and sabotage everything Trump is clearly not working. But there is zero indication Democrats plan to alter this strategy.
Fox news reports on the poll and asks Dem hack Brad Woodhouse about the new numbers. He starts with the usual talking points- Republicans gonna take away health care from 23 million

Texas judge who admitted to using ecstasy and marijuana and sexting her bailiff is suspended from the bench
Texas Justice of the Peace Hilary Green was suspended from the bench on Friday
Green, who has been serving since 2007, was suspended after allegedly admitting to using hard drugs and trading sexts with her bailiff
However, the 46-year-old mother-of-one says that her ‘misuse’ of drugs had no impact on her work life and she plans to fight the suspension

One Hamptons party explains what’s wrong with American politics
For anyone still wondering why Middle America’s so angry, just take a look at the guest list for the annual bash thrown by Washington Post heiress Lally Weymouth, currently the paper’s senior associate editor, in the Hamptons last week.

It was full of politicians and power brokers — the ones who pantomime outrage daily, accusing the other side of crushing the little guy, sure that the same voter will never guess that behind closed doors, they all get along.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner partied with billionaire Democratic donor George Soros, who rubbed shoulders with billionaire GOP donor David Koch.

Tim Kaine: Russia Investigation ‘Potentially’ Moving Toward ‘Treason’
The New York Times recently reported that Trump Jr. sought information that could be damaging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign in a meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
“Do you think this is treason?” CNN’s Manu Raju asked Kaine, who was Clinton’s running mate in the 2016 election.
“Nothing’s been proven yet but we’re beyond obstruction of justice just in terms of what’s being investigated,” Kaine said. “This is moving into perjury, false statements, and even potentially treason.”

Republicans increasingly think colleges are harming the U.S.
A new survey from the Pew Research Center finds that a majority of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (58 percent) now think that colleges and universities are having a negative impact on the United States. That’s up from 45 percent last year.
For comparison, most Democrats and Democratic leaners (72 percent) think that institutions of higher learning are having a positive effect on the country, which is consistent with poll results from recent years.
Attacks on free speech, political bias among professors and demonstrations seeking to cancel invitations to speakers with unpopular views have all become talking points among conservative pundits. Among the right, “safe spaces,” “trigger warnings” and “micro-aggressions” have become shorthand for thin-skinned liberal students who cannot handle opposing points of view.

Smackdown! Kellyanne Conway vs. Chris Cuomo
IF NOT FOR HIS LAST NAME THIS PUNK WOULD BE MIXING PAINT AT HOME DEPOT
Here’s the abbreviated version.

And if you’ve got a half hour, here’s the whole thing.

‘Comedian’ George Lopez : ‘Make the Country Safe, Deport the Police!’
George Lopez should keep to “comedy” and leave politics to the adults.
“The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer. You wanna make the streets safer, deport the police.”
Lopez is just another entertainer trying to make himself relevant by mocking the president and bashing the police.
His message was met immediately with backlash.
Liberals want to make the argument that police are out hunting minorities, despite the fact that, time and again, this is proven false. And they wonder why they continue to lose public support!

Dem Mayor Under Indictment Wants Taxpayers to Buy Her a New Car
THINK YOU’VE HEARD OF CORRUPTION? CHECK THIS OUT
Mayor Randy “Rambo” McCallum Sr. came into office telling cops, “I run this mother___” and ordered them to rob competing drug dealers and split the money with him. When drug dealers were busted, the seized drugs and money were brought to his house where he pocketed the money and resold the drugs.
McCallum Sr. stole so much money that there were no bank deposits for a year. When an undercover informant went to his house, he found crack cocaine on the kitchen table being prepped for sale.
There’s more. There’s more than anything you want to imagine or believe. And now there are new events in Alorton’s political establishment.
The first agenda item under “new business” for tonight’s village board meeting after mayor elect Joann Reed’s swearing in is a proposal to buy her a new car at public expense for her exclusive use.
Reed is facing prosecution by St. Clair County State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly. She is charged with felony vote buying and misdemeanor electioneering. If convicted of the felony charge, Kelly could ask a judge to remove her from office…
Mayor JoAnn Reed, Alorton’s current mayor, faced her own set of charges before the election for smuggling a cell phone into jail after her niece had attacked a pregnant woman. The niece posted “I’m in jail but auntie snuck me my phone don’t tell no 1” on Facebook.
Despite these charges, Reed won the election.
She got $1,500 in campaign cash from the law firm of county Democratic boss Robert Sprague, $1,000 from the firm of Belleville attorney Tom Keefe, $8,000 from her attorney Mark Scoggins and $1,000 from County Board Chairman Mark Kern.
They served her cash and she served them the public’s votes. She again is facing a felony, this time for vote buying and electioneering.

Acting FBI Director McCabe under federal investigation

McCabe

The Hatch Act prohibits FBI agents from campaigning in partisan races. In 2015, Andrew McCabe campaigned on behalf of his wife Jill when she was running for Virginia state senate.

Jill McCabe also took nearly $500,000 in campaign donations from a PAC that is affiliated with Bill and Hillary Clinton, calling her husband’s impartiality into question regarding the FBI’s investigation into Hillary’s emails when she was Obama’s Secretary of State.
