Half a dozen of those “horrible monsters who just want kids to die” are outstanding parents who happen to be very near and dear to me.

Yesterday morning the blower on our furnace quit. The landlord sent over his HVAC guys, who determined which part they needed. Being an old furnace, there was only one place in town that had it and the landlord decided they wanted too much money, so he had a new furnace installed today. Everything is fine. I go to bed, and when the furnace kicks in it sounds like a tugboat engine, chugging away. After being woke up 3 times, I gave up. That’s why I’m sitting here, typing this nonsense while I wait to go do my newspapers. Sometimes you just can’t win.
Judge Denies $1 Million Funding in Sanctuary Cities CaseI SEE THIS AS A SYMBOLIC RULING, ALBEIT A JOKE BECAUSE A MILLION BUCKS IS NOTHING IN A STATE ECONOMY THE SIZE OF CALI’S. IT DID, HOWEVER, SET THE LIBERALS OFF, AS IT ALWAYS DOES WHEN THEY DON’T GET EVERYTHING THEIR OWN WAY.
SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – A federal judge on Monday refused to order the Trump Administration to pay California $1 million in delayed law enforcement funding it withheld to punish it for becoming a sanctuary state.
“Given the number of open questions concerning the federal government’s positions concerning the provisions of the statutes in question, the relatively minimal injury its delay has caused thus far, and the extraordinary nature of the relief sought, I deny the state’s motion without prejudice,” Orrick wrote.
“People Will Not Be Bowed,” Pelosi Explodes After Trump Admin Drops Hammer on California Lawmakers Protecting Illegal Aliens
Speaking in Sacramento Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions blasted California lawmakers for protecting illegal aliens in their ‘sanctuary cities.’
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) immediately fired back at the Trump administration’s move to finally put an end to the insanity of sanctuary cities.
The Democrats don’t even try to hide it anymore. They openly fight for the invaders who are leeching, killing and raping American citizens.http://thegatewaypundit.com/2018/03/crazy-pelosi-fires-off-defiant-tweet-trump-admin-drops-hammer-california-lawmakers-protecting-illegal-aliens/
‘How Dare You’ — Jeff Sessions Drops The Hammer On California Politicians’ ‘Radical, Open Borders Agenda’
SESSIONS IS, I’M SURE, A NICE MAN, BUT HE IS A GUPPY DEALING WITH A SCHOOL OF SHARKS.
THEY KNOW HE’S A JOKE. DEMOCRATS NEVER GIVE IN. IF THEY DISAGREE WITH A LAW, THEY SIMPLY IGNORE IT. ALWAYS HAVE.
“Here’s my message to Mayor Schaaf–how dare you. How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical, open borders agenda.”
Nancy Pelosi Defends ‘Sanctuary State’ California Against Trump’s ‘Brazen Aggression’
THE THOUGHT OF THIS DERANGED WHORE EVER HOLDING THE SPEAKERS’ GAVEL AGAIN IS TERRIFYING
U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defended her home state Wednesday against what she called “the Trump Administration’s brazen aggression and intimidation tactics,” after U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions filed a lawsuit to have California’s “sanctuary state” statutes declared unconstitutional.

Denver Refusing to Honor ICE Detainer for Illegal Responsible for Hit-and-Run
EVERY MAJOR URBAN TOILET IS PROTECTING THEIR ILLEGALS BECAUSE THEY ARE THE KEY TO THEIR DREAMS OF A TOTALITARIAN STATE WITH THEM AT THE TOP
The Denver Sheriff’s Department, it turns out, stopped honoring detainer requests back in 2014. They have plenty of company. Perhaps no state has done more to spit in ICE’s face than California. Last week, Oakland, California Mayor Libby Schaaf even encouraged “undocumented citizens” to evade the immigration authorities. In a social media post, she warned the community that ICE agents were planning a raid in the next 24 hours. Her heads up very well may have allowed hundreds of individuals to flee, because when ICE showed up, they found only 232 of the 864 illegal immigrants that were supposedly living there.
Democrats Pitch Bill Creating 50 Percent Tax On Gun, Ammo SalesA group of House Democrats has introduced a bill that would up the taxes on firearms and ammunition to pay for research on “gun violence and its prevention.”
Under the plan, ammunition would see excise taxes increase to 50 percent and firearms to 20 percent. Currently, manufacturers pay a long-running 11 percent excise tax on sporting firearms and ammunition under the Pittman–Robertson Act, which goes to fund conservation efforts such as hunter education programs, public shooting ranges and preserving wildlife habitat. The jump in fees under Davis’ plan would be set aside for public safety grants and research.
But that’s what gun grabbers want to do. They don’t just want to keep people from buying guns. They want to hurt the people who already have them.

CBS Urges Oprah: Run Against Trump Because You ‘Heal and Connect All People’
“Nobody should be convinced to run for the presidency, but I also think you have a very unique ability in terms of healing and connecting all people.”
NOTICE HER BESTIE GAYLE KING STARING LOVINGLY AT HER
Co-host Gayle King — who can be forgiven for her bias due to being Winfrey’s best friend — told the media mogul:
“Nobody should be convinced to run for the presidency, but I also think you have a very unique ability in terms of healing and connecting all people.”
Not so humbly, Oprah affirmed:
“I have great compassion for people. I do that.”
As part of her pitch, King referenced the late poet Maya Angelou:
“What do you think Maya would say? It’s one of these times I really wish Maya was here. What do you think she would say? You would certainly ask her.”

Look at that. She is like — she’s caught up in the rapture, right?”
NY Gov.: When you die and go to heaven God asks, ‘Have you been a good progressive?’
I DOUBT YOU’LL HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THAT, CHAMP
The Democratic Party may not need God in their platform, but according to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, progressives are literally on the side of the angels.
“I believe when you go to the Pearly Gates and our Lord says, ‘Have you been a good progressive?’ He says, ‘Show me the list of what you got done,’” Cuomo said.
“And I have accomplished more progressive results in this state than have been accomplished by any administration and I believe that is factually, objectively irrefutable,” he added.
Boy, that feeled good.
That noise you hear is my former Honors English teacher, the late Mrs. Gladys Ford, rolling in her grave. She was the best I ever knew.
Democrats, women candidates score big in Texas primaries
THEY WERE ANTICIPATING LANDSLIDES ACROSS THE STATE. WHAT IT WAS, WAS A LOT OF EARLY VOTERS.
The AP touted gains made by women and minorities, but a closer look at results wasn’t all that impressive. The Democrats didn’t get the numbers they wanted.
AUSTIN, Texas — Women running for Congress surged to big wins and Democrats smashed recent turnout levels in Texas’ first-in-the-nation 2018 primary elections, giving Republicans a potential glimpse of what’s ahead in the first midterms under President Donald Trump.
Energized and angry Democrats in Texas, where the GOP has dominated for decades, came out in force to surpass 1 million voters Tuesday — the first time the party has eclipsed that benchmark in a midterm primary since 2002, just months after the Sept. 11 attacks.
Here is the Politico results from each primary contest

George Soros has effectively purchased another district attorney’s seat.
The left-wing billionaire pumped almost $1 million into a Texas district attorney’s race against a Democratic DA who opposes sanctuary cities, according to campaign filings reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Soros’s preferred candidate, Joe Gonzales, upset incumbent Bexar County DA Nico LaHood in the Democratic primary Tuesday. LaHood conceded after Gonzales jumped up to a sizable lead as votes were counted.
Ted Cruz worries: Texas could turn blue this year

Parkland Shooting Survivor to Sue Broward School District After Deputy Accused of Failing to Act
Parkland student Anthony Borges, who was shot five times during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, plans to sue the Broward County school system “to cover the cost of his recovery.”

‘The failure of Broward County Public Schools, and of the principal and school resource officer to adequately protect students, and in particular our client, from life-threatening harm were unreasonable, callous and negligent,’ attorney Alex Arreaza wrote in the lawsuit notice on Monday. ‘Such action or inaction led to the personal injuries sustained by my client.’

CNN Travels To Thailand To Speak With Prostitute Who Claims To Have Dirt On Trump
CNN is dispatching reporters around the world to help dig up clues and finally get to the bottom of the Trump campaign’s Russia ties. Last month the network infamously sent a reporter to St. Petersburg, where he literally dug around a dumpster looking for leads.
Today CNN sent a reporter to Bangkok to speak with a prostitute who claims to have the goods on the Trump camp’s alleged collusion with Russia. The woman, Anastasia Vashukevich, who is also a self-described “sex coach,” is currently imprisoned, and hopes that America will offer her asylum in exchange for her story.
CNN apparently found this tale credible enough to send a reporter to cover.
And they don’t call them the Clown News Network for Nothing……
DACA Illegal Aliens Arrested After Shutting Down Street Outside Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin Office

Illegal aliens and open borders activists demanding immediate amnesty for the 12 to 30 million illegal aliens living in the United States were arrested outside House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Racine, Wisconsin office after shutting down the street.
How Close Is America to Outright Gun Confiscation? Very Close.
What you have above are four crystal clear examples of a former president and an almost-president, both of them leaders of the Democrat Party, openly speaking out in favor of gun confiscation — which is precisely what both are talking about when they extol the wondrous virtues of “what Australia did.”
What happened in Australia was that the government sponsored a gun buyback in which Australians were forced to hand their guns in. That is confiscation, full stop.
Nevertheless, despite four crystal clear examples, the Washington Post fact checkers have said that it is a lie to accuse either Hillary or Obama of wanting to confiscate guns.
NAACP Urges National Gun Confiscation
NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson called for a national gun confiscation program in a syndicated column through Black Press USA on Monday.
Comparing recent school shootings to the violence and discrimination black students faced after the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Johnson wrote that “fear and terror still exist in our children’s classrooms” because of the “National Rifle Association and the politicians [sic] that support them.”
Senate clears two more judicial nominees, 27 total judges confirmed
Karen Gren Scholer was confirmed to the Northern District of Texas Monday by a vote of 95-0. The Senate also voted 85-11 to confirm Tilman Eugene Self III to the Middle District of Georgia.
Mr. Trump has placed 27 judges on the federal bench since taking office last January, when he faced an unprecedented amount of judicial vacancies. Fourteen of the 28 judicial picks took seats on circuit courts, while the other 13 nominees filled vacancies on district courts.
There are nearly five dozen more judicial nominees currently awaiting either hearings before members on the Judiciary Committee or votes before the full Senate.
When Melania and Mrs. Netanyahu met, people did a double take. Then people saw the ice-cold stilettos
Love her or not, it’s becoming clear that Melania Trump will go down in history as one of America’s most beautiful and fashion-forward icons.
Melania, in powder blue, was seemingly color coordinated with Sara Netanyahu, who wore a light teal ensemble for the couple’s official visit to the U.S.
Both women were stunning, but Melania literally stood out with skyscraping metallic stilettos of the same color.
MSNBC Host to DNC Chair: Should Dems Demand Trump Impeachment?
In a softball interview with Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez on Monday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Kasie Hunt asked if the Democratic Party should make the impeachment of President Trump part of its platform. She also invited the liberal leader to wildly speculate on whether Trump was guilty of colluding with Russia during the 2016 campaign.
Now There’s a Play Called ‘Kill Climate Deniers,’ Because Why Not
Do you know anyone who denies that there’s such a thing as climate? Do you know anybody who hears the word “climate” and says, “Nuh-uh! You can’t fool me, that’s just made up!” I don’t. Yet whenever somebody questions any aspect of the prevailing global warming orthodoxy, he or she is labeled a “climate denier.”
Sounds like a real crowd-pleaser. They even made a trailer of sorts for it:
Democratic Mayor Pleads Guilty To Stealing Over $10K From Taxpayers To Fund Her Affair, But She’s Not Heading To Jail
I HAVE ALWAYS MAINTAINED DEMOCRATS DO NOT PROSECUTE DEMOCRATS
Nashville Mayor Megan Barry pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony theft for spending more than $10,000 worth of government money, but will serve no time in jail.
Barry had reportedly been working on negotiations with Nashville District Attorney Glenn Funk to face no prosecution if she were to resign from office. Instead of jail, Barry will serve three years of probation and agreed to repay the city $11,000 in reimbursement fees, although it was reported she spent nearly $33,000 of the government’s money.

Dick Durbin Calls No Amnesty ‘Humanitarian Crisis’ While Blacks Overly Unemployed in His State
“This humanitarian crisis in this country, and I call it that,” Durbin said. “Was created by President Trump on September 5th.”
President Trump, in contrast to Durbin, has secured historic wage increases, job opportunities, and record-low unemployment for black Americans through his strict immigration enforcement initiative known as “Buy American, Hire American,” which has weeded many illegal aliens out of the U.S. workforce.
The black unemployment sits at 6.8 percent nationwide, the lowest ever in history since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking black unemployment in 1972.
TRUMP HAS MADE JOBS POSSIBLE FOR BLACKS, BUT HE WILL BE GIVEN ABSOLUTELY NO CREDIT. KEEP ‘EM ON THE DEMOCRAT PLANTATION.

Illegal Aliens With Sex, Robbery Convictions Among The 800 Who Evaded Capture After Dem Mayor’s Warning
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tweeted out an impending warning of the four-day raid last week, alerting targeted individuals to the imminent arrests, and infuriating Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, who say that many more could have been caught if they hadn’t been warned.
The raid led to the arrest of 232 illegal immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area, 180 of which ICE said “were either convicted criminals, had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, or had been previously removed” from the country and had come back illegally.

Schumer slammed for citing skin color in vote against white judicial nominee
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer faced a stern rebuke from congressional colleagues for citing skin color in voting against a white federal judge nominee earlier this week.
Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the Senate floor Wednesday that the nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum, a white lawyer who is a partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough in Greenville, S.C., “speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary.”

Texans break early voting record after more Dems get involved
I ALLUDED TO THIS IN THE PREVIOUS POST
Early voting in Texas’ largest 15 counties has hit an all-time high for a non-presidential election year ahead of congressional primaries in the state on Tuesday.
According to data posted on Saturday by the Texas secretary of state’s office, 885,574 Texans voted in the 11 days of early voting that ended Friday, the Austin American-Statesman reported.
That figure far surpasses the 592,153 Texans who voted early in 2014.
Early voting among Democrats surged this year, the Statesman reported. 465,245 Democrats cast their ballots early, compared to 420,329 Republicans. That represents a significant change from 2014, when only 226,730 Democrats voted early, compared to 65,423 Republicans.
Statue of Marion Barry, controversial former mayor, unveiled in Washington
THE INSCRIPTION SHOULD READ: “THE BITCH SET ME UP!”
To some in Washington, D.C., he was a “living legend” who advocated for the city’s poor. To others he was a controversial figure remembered for being re-elected mayor despite serving a prison sentence for possession of crack cocaine.
The move to honor Barry, who died at age 78 in 2014, may seem mystifying to non-Washingtonians. But among Barry’s supporters, the statue is an appropriate tribute to a legitimate D.C. icon — a man so popular and influential that he walked out of federal prison and immediately began winning elections again with one of the most improbable comebacks in American political history.
How A Pathetic Republican Party Is Allowing ‘The Resistance’ To Run The Score — And The GovernmentSenate Republicans are heading toward midterm elections with control of their chamber and the biggest advantage any majority party has had since 1790. Yet every week, the Democrats are allowed to work just 2.5 days before returning home to duke it out with their Republican challengers. That is, Mitch McConnell is allowing Democrats to hit the campaign trail hard while obstructing 139 of the president’s nominees
Executive governance is out of style. On Friday, while 26 Senate Democrats up for re-election went home to their states or elsewhere to speak and raise money with which to batter Republicans in November, 139 of the White House’s nominees languished in positions from undersecretary for arms control and international security affairs to director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center
GOP Rep: POTUS and His Family Are Being Put Through Hell For Winning an Election – There’s No Evidence They Committed Any Crime
Earlier this week, GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin sent a letter to AWOL Attorney General Jeff Sessions urging him to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate FISA abuses and how/why Hillary’s probe ended and Trump’s Russia probe began.
Zeldin’s letter came after Sessions told reporters he would have IG Horowitz investigate the FISA abuses. We need a special counsel; the Inspector General does not have prosecutorial power.
At the time of this publication, thirteen GOP Reps. have signed Zeldin’s letter.
On Sunday, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) said from his Twitter account, “.@realDonaldTrump & family being investigated for winning election w/no evidence they committed any crime to win the election. Sick, crazy & wrong!”

Why wouldn’t you sign a CBA to protect us?”
The Woman in the High Castle
WE DIDN’T DODGE A BULLET, WE DODGED AN ICBM
In a dystopian fantasy in The New York Times at the end of the year, the columnist Bret Stephens reminded us of the horror that might have been:
Tax cuts. Deregulation. More for the military; less for the United Nations. The Islamic State crushed in its heartland. Assad hit with cruise missiles. Troops to Afghanistan. Arms for Ukraine. A tougher approach to North Korea. Jerusalem recognized as Israel’s capital. The Iran deal decertified. Title IX kangaroo courts on campus condemned. Yes to Keystone. No to Paris. Wall Street roaring and consumer confidence high.
And, of course, Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court.
Thank God, as Stephens himself so forcefully predicted, Donald Trump was crushed in the November 2016 election and the nation was spared those and other right-wing depredations.
Instead, Hillary Rodham Clinton, in the landslide that everyone who was anyone predicted, was elected the 45th president of the United States and lost no time in fulfilling her campaign promises—and even going beyond what she had promised in many areas. […]
“Hate speech is not free speech,” Clinton argued in a rousing Oval Office speech, which is widely credited with inaugurating the lawsuit now before the Supreme Court to update the outmoded provisions of the First Amendment for the 21st Century. “Thomas Jefferson could not have foreseen Fox News, Breitbart, or Rush Limbaugh,” Clinton said, “and it’s pretty clear that our Founding Fathers and Mothers would not have countenanced the hurtful lies masquerading as news that such divisive outlets foster.”

Maxine Waters Promises Slavery Reparations For Blacks If Dems Take House In Midterm Elections
Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters said during an event in Selma, Alabama on Saturday that she would “be happy” to secure financial reparations for black Americans.
Waters said as long as Democrats win back the House in 2020 and are able to get a president who is friendly to their agenda, it would be “wonderful” to get reparations.
“I’d be happy to do that. That’s no problem,” Waters said when an event attendee pressed her to support reparations.

Florida Senate passes bill to put restrictions on gun sales
THERE WILL BE AN ALL-OUT ATTEMPT AT GUN CONFISCATION, WHICH WILL LEAD TO CIVIL UNREST AND GEORGE SOROS WILL MAKE BILLIONS OFF THE CARNAGE
The 20-18 vote came after three hours of often emotional debate. Support and opposition crossed party lines, and it was clear many of those who voted for the bill weren’t entirely happy with it.
“Do I think this bill goes far enough? No! No, I don’t!” said Democratic Sen. Lauren Book, who tearfully described visiting Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after 17 people were fatally shot on Valentine’s Day.
Christian Bridal Shop Closes Down Over Fear of LGBT Law After Facing Death Threats
A Christian bridal shop in Pennsylvania that has faced death threats will shut its doors permanently due to the strong likelihood that a local town council will pass a law banning discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran Announces Resignation, Will Depart April 1
THIS WALKING CADAVER WOULD NEVER BEEN RE-ELECTED IN THE FIRST PLACE, BUT FOR THE TAMPERING BY McCONNELL BUYING VOTES TO HELP HIM DEFEAT CHRIS McDANIEL
While he survived a brutal and controversial Senate primary in 2014, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, citing his failing health, is resigning effective April 1. A special election will be held to finish the remainder of his term that ends in 2020. If no one gets above 50 percent, a runoff will be held. For now, Gov. Phil Bryant will appoint an interim senator to fill the vacancy until the election. Cochran’s colleague, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MI), is up for re-election this year and is facing a challenge by state Sen. Chris McDaniel. McDaniel challenged Cochran in 2014
Mike Espy to run for Thad Cochran’s Senate seat
Espy became Assistant State Attorney General from 1984 to 1985, when he was elected as a Democrat to the 100th Congress in 1986 from Mississippi’s 2nd congressional district.
He defeated two-term Republican Webb Franklin to become the first African-American to represent Mississippi at the federal level since Reconstruction.
He was reelected three times.
Just 20 days after taking office for his fourth term, Espy resigned after being appointed Secretary of Agriculture in the Cabinet of President Bill Clinton. He served as Secretary of Agriculture in 1993–94.
The Silicon Valley elite’s latest status symbol: Chickens
Their pampered birds wear diapers and have personal chefs — but lay the finest eggs tech money can buy
AS AN OLD FARM BOY, I AM VERY WELL AWARE OF THE NUANCES OF THE RAISING OF POULTRY.
I JUST HAD TO POST THIS TO SHOW YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE ABOUT HOW LOONEY CALIFORNY HAS BECOME.
In America’s rural and working-class areas, keeping chickens has long been a thrifty way to provide fresh eggs. In recent years, the practice has emerged as an unlikely badge of urban modishness. But in the Bay Area — where the nation’s preeminent local food movement overlaps with the nation’s tech elite — egg-laying chickens are now a trendy, eco-conscious humblebrag on par with driving a Tesla.
In true Silicon Valley fashion, chicken owners approach their birds as any savvy venture capitalist might: By throwing lots of money at a promising flock (spending as much as $20,000 for high-tech coops). By charting their productivity (number and color of eggs). And by finding new ways to optimize their birds’ happiness — as well as their own.
They are selecting for desirable personality traits (such as being affectionate and calm — the lap chickens that are gentle enough for a child to cuddle), rarity, beauty and the ability to produce highly coveted, colored eggs.
All of it happens in cutting-edge coops, with exorbitant veterinarian bills and a steady diet of organic salmon, watermelon and steak.
I’M TIRED NOW
This may turn out to be a rather lengthy rant. It’s happened before.
A billionaire former reality show host and political neophyte sent shock waves all over the world when he defeated the most corrupt, greedy, ruthless congenital liar ever to run for the presidency. I doubted his chances of even winning the nomination, but came to realize that he was the only man who could stop the pre-ordained coronation of the Beast of Benghazi. He’s done pretty well, especially with his nomination to SCOTUS of Neil Grouch. He totally played the Democrats on DACA, which expired yesterday, and his tax cuts have kick-started the economy.
Maybe we’ve taken too much for granted, controlling all three branches of government. Not enough of us realize the white-hot rage and anger of the Left after seeing their dream of a totalitarian power vaporized. They have not taken it well. With help from people like George Soros, Tom Steyer, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet, they have mobilized voter turnout to flip 38 straight state House and Senate seats. The media has committed every atrocity possible against the president. The Democrats count on a raging electorate with the promise of impeaching Trump the day they get the majority, which they think is a foregone conclusion.
After a good start, Trump is reverting to the way he was in the past. He’s always been in favor of trade tariffs, this time on steel and aluminum imports. W tried it, but after 13 months and more than 200,000 jobs lost, he had to rescind them. Trump’s tax cuts have spurred the economy and brought a lot of revenue that was parked offshore back home. Who knows how many will stay here and how many more will be forced to relocate.
He’s also opted for the Democrat plan for gun control, taking the guns first and passing laws later. He totally rejected Steve Scalise, the congressman who was almost killed, who offered an amendment for national reciprocity for CCW carriers.
I’ve been meaning to comment on this for some time:
It would be almost unthinkable that police officers in Parkland would be ordered to stand down and “surround” the school until the cries of the dead and dying stopped. But this is how communism operates. Those 17 innocents were sacrificed to make a demonic push for gun confiscation. This may have been unthinkable at one time, but we’ve seen the Americans left to die by Obama and Clinton so as not to have to answer questions before a presidential election. Obama also ignored the pleas of the Gulf Coast governors for permission to try to stop the BP oil spill from making landfall. He waited until it came ashore, destroying thousands of small businesses and putting tens of thousands of people out of work, just so he could use it as an excuse to put a moratorium on oil exploration. What did he care? Most of them didn’t vote for him anyway.
If we don’t wake up we’re going to find ourselves staring as something akin to a toddler with a machine gun as the Democrats, when they get the power, will stop at nothing to stop everything we’ve managed to accomplish to this point.
Broward County Deputies Told to Form Perimeter Around School Instead of Confronting Shooter
MAY THE GHOSTS OF THOSE BUTCHERED HAUNT THIS ASSHOLE FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.
The order came from Capt. Jan Jordan.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel had said publicly that active-shooter training instructs officers to immediately confront the shooter or shooters. Forming a perimeter is secondary.
The documents show the shooting lasted approximately 6 minutes and was likely over by the time officers arrived on the scene. In a press conference revealing (now former) school deputy Scot Peterson stayed outside rather than confronting the shooter, Sheriff Israel said Peterson should have “went in. Addressed the killer. Killed the killer.”
Despite it all, Sheriff Israel refuses to resign.
For what good it will do, the Florida House opened an investigation, subpoenaing Broward County Schools and law enforcement.
Organizers plan for 500,000 attendees at ‘March For Our Lives’ gun-control march in Washington
The application filed this week with the National Park Service indicates the “March for Our Lives” will be March 24, although a location hasn’t been determined. The rally, organized by survivors of last week’s school massacre in Parkland, Fla., will have “sister marches” in other major cities, organizers said.
The event will include “student speakers, musical performers, guest speakers and video tributes,” according to the permit application, with 14 Jumbotrons and 2,000 chairs.
The kids are pawns, Democrats use Parkland students to get out the vote
In case you are on the fence about coming to the realization that the kids in Parkland, Florida are being used as stooges to push the anti-gun agenda of the left, there is proof in the form of social media. Here we have a tweet from conservative writer Mark Hemingway showing a student has signed off on a letter via Democrats.org: calling on like-minded people to support the I Will Vote initiative. Oh yeah, and change gun laws.
PTA organizes ‘gun safety’ walkouts, hides from parents far-left radicals tied to events
The California State Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is urging its members to “call out” federal legislators in support of gun control on March 14, coinciding with the “#Enough” school walkout being organized by the anti-Trump Women’s March organization.
ccording to the Women’s March website, students, teachers, and school administrators will walk out of school for 17 minutes beginning at 10:00am on the 14th.
Women’s March is headed by pro-Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, an associate of convicted terrorist Rasmieh Yousef Odeh who has blamed the “Jewish media” for her unpopularity
Women’s March co-founder defends herself against charge of ignoring anti-Semitism with anti-Semitism
In the audience at last weekend’s conference was Tamika Mallory, one of the leaders of the Women’s March, who got a special shout-out from Farrakhan and who regularly posts laudatory pictures of him on her Instagram account — as does Carmen Perez, another leader of the March. Linda Sarsour, another March organizer, spoke and participated at a Nation of Islam event in 2015. Her most notable response to his incendiary remarks this year was a glowing post on Perez’s Facebook page to praise Farrakhan’s youthful demeanor.
Gun-Control Group Pledges $2.5M for Marches to End School Shootings
The truth is, these anti-gun groups have been behind the scenes organizing all this from day one. Just yesterday, it was reported that Everytown for Gun Safety, Giffords advocacy group, Move On, Planned Parenthood, and the Women’s March LA were backing the March for our Lives Rallies that will take place around the country on March 24th.
Dems want this spokesperson? Teen brags he hung up on Trump WH while classmate drops the F-bomb on TV
Stoneman Douglas high school student/activist David Hogg appeared on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” to stress that the gun control agenda he’s been pushing is not about politics.
He then bragged that he hung up on the White House… before his classmate dropped an “F-bomb” on national television, directed at “all generations before us.”
As Maher explained that President Trump is an anomaly, a “virus from outer space,” the high school student interjected: “I mean this sincerely, I really do. To all of the generations before us, we sincerely accept your apology. We appreciate that you are willing to let us rebuild the world that you f*cked up.”
Mother of Exploited Shooting Survivor Turns Out to Be A CNN VIP & Anti-Trump Activist
The mother of a teenager who survived the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting appears to have high level connections at CNN
One photo shows her children sitting at an anchor’s desk.
Boldrick is the mother of David Hogg, who has gained internet fame for his activism in the days since the shooting.
Hogg and his merry band of anti-gun crusaders have been paraded around by nearly every cable news network in America.
Apparently, activism runs in the family. A series of Facebook posts show that Boldrick is an avowed Democrat and anti-Trumper.
THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE HOGG’S SENIOR PICTURE FROM REDONDO SHORES HIGH IN 2015. HE IS ALLEGEDLY A CRISIS ACTOR, SHOWING UP TO GRAB PUBLICITY. MY QUESTION IS: IF HE WAS NOT ACTUALLY A STUDENT, WHY ARE ALL THE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS NOT SAYING ANYTHING?
To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens. — Adolph Hitler, 1933
There’s no evidence Hitler ever said these words, but it does reflect his opinion that disarming occupied nations was imperative to maintaining control of them.
Last year, just a few months into his presidency, Donald Trump didn’t attend either the Gridiron Dinner or the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Apparently, after more than a year of slander, ridicule, mockery, and extreme verbal abuse from these pricks, he’d finally had enough and decided to let off a little steam. He spared no one, including himself, his family, and the vice president, but he threw some sharp jabs at Democrats, especially the New York Slimes and Gasoline Maxine Waters. He sure did a better job of mocking himself than that obscene jerk Alec Baldwin does on SNL.
Roasting the Night Away: President Trump’s Standup Routine Steals the Show at Gridiron Dinner
Trump joked that he was late to the dinner “because Jared couldn’t get through security,” mocking his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner’s loss of top secret security clearance because of a variety of business entanglements.
“Ivanka, you’ve got to do something!” Trump called out to his daughter, mocking her too.
Trump said that Vice President Mike Pence, who he called a “straight man,” begins every day by asking about the president he would replace if removed: “Is he impeached yet?”
At that point, he mocked not only policy adviser Stephen Miller but his wife Melania too.
“Trump then joked about who would be next to leave the White House and questioned whether it would be ‘Steve Miller or Melania,’” Walker wrote in the White House pool report. “He later referenced the #FreeMelania hashtag.”
“She’s actually having a great time,” Trump added of Melania.
Trump also brought up ‘talk’ former Vice President Joe Biden, or as he put it, ‘Sleepy Joe,’ might run for president in 2020. Trump referenced prior comments Biden made about wanting to take him out behind a barn,” Walker wrote.
“I would kick his ass like no other. … Man, would he be easy,” President Trump said of running against Biden.
Trump at Gridiron Media Dinner: “This Might be the Most Fun I’ve Had Since Watching Your Faces on Election Night”
Trump addressed the crowd and did not hold back. He told the media elites he and The New York Times are both New York City icons — “the only difference is I still own my buildings.”
Having turned down press dinners last year, Trump told journalists who belong to the Gridiron Club that he wanted to come this year and “ruin your evening in person.”
Trump’s top jokes from the Gridiron dinner
Add to the mix his administration’s struggles in some key policy areas, Trump’s harshly critical tweets, and an ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election that has inched closer to Trump’s orbit, and one question jumps out: Does the President ever stop to joke about it all?
Indeed he does, as only Trump can.

Trump Jokes About Maxine Waters Needing An IQ Test At Gridiron Dinner
TRUMP CRACKS A JOKE ABOUT THIS DERANGED RACE HUSTLER AND THE REACTION IS PREDICTABLE.
Waters has been insisting that Congress open an investigation to find something on which they can impeach Trump (and after that, she says, she’ll “go after” Pence). It’s unsurprising, then, that the president would take a jab at her.
Talking Points Memo reports:
Though he poked fun at his own administration’s dysfunction (“It’s been really another calm week at the White House”), Trump saved some of his sharpest lines for Democrats, including when he said of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA): “She has to immediately take an IQ test.”
Needless to say, the left went into immediate meltdown mode.
LIKE THE GUY ON THE INFOMERCIAL SAYS: “I’M NOT STOPPIN’ THERE!”
THESE TWO ARE REAL SHORT:
Maxine Waters: Trump Is ‘Racist’ For Questioning My IQ
OF COURSE SHE HAD TO RUN TO HER HOMEGIRL TO WHINE ABOUT HOW MEAN TRUMP IS.
Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters alleged Sunday that President Donald Trump is “racist” because he questioned her IQ level.
The California Democrat did not think the joke was funny and questioned Trump’s own mental agility before accusing him of racism.
“Well, you know, this president has been called stupid, he has been called ignorant, and even his secretary of state did not deny that he called him a moron,” Waters said. “And so he has no credibility. He has been name calling, he’s been saying all kinds of things.”
This used to be a big deal. I remember my grandmother watching to see all the gowns the Hollywood elite wore (and often make snide comments about them looking like “a saddle on a sow”…extra grannyism there), or some such offhand snarkiness. Personally, I quit going to movies about the time the outdoor theaters disappeared.
Since the rise of the internet, which gave educated people the ability to express conservative ideas heretofore censored, the discourse has coarsened to the point where so-called “beautiful people” have taken upon themselves to become the arbiters of our morality. The Academy Awards have degenerated into an orgy of self-congratulatory egoists slapping each other on the back, thanking all the ‘little people’ and copping clandestine feels before the “#me too” nonsense was brought belatedly to light.
You know well beforehand that these clowns who make millions playing pretend cannot resist berating this president and all the things most of us hold dear, like the Constitution. I never watch this republican bash-a-thon and doubt any of the few who come by here do either.
Oscar weekend kicks off without celebratory spirit
“Can you believe the Oscars is this Sunday?” a top agent told Steigrad. “It’s like, who cares?”
While there’s always a sense of awards season fatigue following the Golden Globes, this year has a slate of smaller, less flashy movies nominated, with no big stars expected to take home the golden statuette.
“There are no movie stars [expected to win] this year,” the agent added.
Yeah, Here’s Another Reason Why Conservatives Should Just Should Turn Off The Oscars Tonight
Yet, in the age of Trump, you can expect the bashing of our president to occur tonight. You can also expect swipes at those who are not in this club—Republicans, rural voters, people from small towns—to be ridiculed. Oh, and I forgot, there’s going to be pro-gun control pins that celebrities are expected to wear, according to reports. Nothing is confirmed, but this wouldn’t shock me.
Stars to Wear Anti-Gun-Violence Pin at Oscars, Sources Say
Michael Bloomberg’s New York-based gun-control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety has created an anti-gun-violence pin for celebrities to wear to the Oscars on Sunday, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
Since the Parkland, Florida, high school massacre that left 17 dead last month, thousands of young people have called upon the organization to support their efforts to advocate for more stringent gun-control laws and other public-safety issues.
Can Time’s Up Avoid Protest Fatigue at the Oscars?
In several decades of researching social change, I have never seen a social movement arise as quickly and spread as widely as the #MeToo campaign against sexual assault and harassment. But like all contemporary protests, supporters face the difficulty of sustaining momentum in the face of a public whose attention span seldom lasts beyond a single news cycle.
In approaching the Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, activists face a problem scholars call “protest fatigue.” People tend to grow weary of repeated protests unless there is something novel about them. Movements that were once energetic and fresh find themselves under a great deal of pressure to top their previous efforts.
Jimmy Kimmel Says ‘It’s Almost Necessary Now’ to Trash Trump: ‘I Don’t Think You Can Go too Far’
THIS IS THE CHUMP WHO HOSTED A SHOW FEATURING GIRLS ON TRAMPOLINES, GUZZLING BEER AND PLAYING “GUESS WHAT’S IN MY PANTS.”
YEAH, HE CAN’T GO TOO FAR.
“I don’t think you can go too far,” Kimmel says of his politically charged rhetoric. “I’m still doing a comedy show and I need to be funny and entertain my audience, but I also think that we’ve matured enough … to the point where we can accept late-night talk show hosts speaking about a serious subject. And I think that it’s almost necessary now.”
