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

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.

Pelosi: Dems Will Use MLK Day to Organize ‘Teach-Ins’ on GOP ‘Tax Scam’

THIS IS THE ONE DAY A YEAR THESE HYPOCRITICAL PRICKS USE DR. KING TO SUCK UP TO THEIR IGNORANT STEEPLE. THE REST OF THE YEAR EVERYTHING THEY DO IS 180 DEGREES OUT OF PHASE WITH EVERYTHING HE STOOD FOR.

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.”]

Jay Leno: Late-Night TV Turned Into ‘Depressing,’ ‘In Your Face’ Trump-Bashing

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.

Bannon’s Cannon Frosts Flake

Look, it took a long time for me to think that title up. For what I get paid around here you ain’t gettin’ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Or Paul McCartney. Or (fill in any two-bit rapper you can think of here… I don’t know any and don’t care to… I don’t consider that garbage as music anyway).

Bannon Claims Another Scalp as Jeff Flake Decides Not to Seek Reelection

Under threat of an arduous primary challenge backed by Steve Bannon, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., announced Tuesday he will not seek reelection.
He told The Arizona Republic ahead of his announcement that he has become convinced “there may not be a place for a Republican like me in the current Republican climate or the current Republican Party.”
Flake said he has not “soured on the Senate” and loves the institution, but that as a traditional, libertarian-leaning conservative Republican he is out of step with today’s Trump-dominated GOP.

Jeff Flake Mourns: ‘Traditional Conservative’ That Values Immigration, Free Trade Can’t Win

“When the next generation asks us, ‘Why didn’t you do something? Why didn’t you speak up?’ What are we going to say?” Flake said sorrowfully as he stood up in the Senate for his announcement. “Mr. President, I rise today to say, enough.”
Flake said that he no longer could serve as a conservative in a party that no longer valued free trade or immigration.

Rand Paul Is Only Lawmaker Who Refused To Stand, Applaud Jeff Flake Trashing POTUS Trump On Senate Floor

Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) gave a bridge burning speech on the Senate floor after news broke that he will not seek re-election in 2018. According to Daily Beast reporter Andrew Desiderio, every lawmaker who attended the speech, both Democrats and Republicans, stood and clapped for Flake — except Rand Paul.

The KY lawmaker didn’t see the virtue in trashing Trump as tax reform is on the table.

THE MEDIA WHORES, OF COURSE, FELL ALL OVER THIS RINO PUNK

CNN Goes All Out: Flake Speech Was ‘Breathtaking,’ ‘Historic,’ ‘Extraordinary Moment’ in U.S. Politics

On Tuesday afternoon, CNN Newsroom couldn’t contain their overwhelming praise for Republican Senator Jeff Flake (Ariz.) following his anti-Trump speech on the Senate floor, swooning like Barack Obama had just given the speech by declaring it a “breathtaking,” “historic,” and “extraordinary moment in American politics.”
Host Brooke Baldwin kicked things off, gushing that “[w]e have all just now witnessed an extraordinary moment in American politics” as “a sitting Republican senator” blamed President Trump for not seeking reelection due to his “actions and behavior.”

[CtH: Gag me!  If he’d said anything remotely like this about Obama, he’d have been tarred and feathered.]

Jeff Flake won’t rule out taking on Trump in 2020 primary

Flake, who said he believes the president is setting a bad example for children, called out Trump for tweeting at foreign leaders and referring to Democrats as “losers or clowns.”
“These are kinds of things that we shouldn’t be okay with,” he said. “We keep waiting for a pivot that simply isn’t happening.”

Jeff Flake Retirement ‘Another Scalp’ for Bannon

At the Arizona rally last week, Bannon mocked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), telling him that his people are going home, in reference to McConnell’s comment about how losers go home and winners make policy.
“Note to self, Mitch: Big Luther Strange and Little Bobby Corker are both going home,” Bannon said to the raucous Arizona crowd last week. “The people of Alabama and the people of Tennessee have spoken. Your folks are going home, and their folks are making policy.”
