Report: Flake wasn’t pressured, he masterminded the Kavanaugh delay
The “Flake-led rebellion” had “been building for nearly two weeks”

Report: Flake wasn’t pressured, he masterminded the Kavanaugh delay
Weak Republicans deprived us of a victory, even if Kavanaugh eventually is confirmed
We’ve been humiliated by seeing our representatives forced to retreat, apologize, capitulate and crawl past the finish line.
Flake not only stole our victory, he emboldened the most aggressive of our opponents.
But Flake wasn’t alone. He took this move with the support of Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins.
We are hostages to these three. Flake is leaving, but Murkowski and Collins will continue their de facto control unless Republicans increase their numbers in the Senate. And there probably will be another Senator or two who will step into Flake’s shoes.
Senate Judiciary Committee Votes Yes on Kavanaugh, But Flake Wants to Delay Floor Vote
The people of Arizona find him so repugnant he isn’t even running for re-election. He’s trolling to be the house “Republican” at CNN or MSDNC, no doubt.
Flake voted Kavanaugh out of committee, but said he wants a week for investigation. The Democrats, of course, want an open-ended inquisition to last ad nauseam.
Grannyism: no matter how thin you slice it, it’s still baloney.
Jeff Flake: “Only Constitutional Remedy” For Trump Firing Mueller is Impeachment
This punk is leaving in January. Until then he intends to be a major pain in the ass.
If the Democrats get Congress back, the first item of business will be impeachment. That’s no secret. They’d have to rush to the Senate before this jerk leaves office for a chance to actually remove him. There’s virtually no chance of that.
Flake, who is not seeking re-election in 2018 but has flirted with a 2020 run for president, joins at least one other high-profile Republican who has brought up the prospect of impeachment should Trump fire Mueller.
“Probably so, if he did it without cause, yeah,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told radio host Hugh Hewitt when asked if firing Mueller would be an impeachable offense.
Trump: “There’s No Such Thing As A Blue Dog Democrat – They’re All Pelosi Democrats”
IT’S THE TRUTH. THERE ARE NO MODERATE DEMOCRATS ANYMORE. THEY JUST HAVE DIFFERENT PRICE TAGS. THE OBAMACARE VOTE PROVED THAT.
Nevada GOP Rep Rides The ‘Rumor Mill’ To A Possible Paul Ryan Resignation
I WILL PROMISE YOU HERE AND NOW, PAUL RYAN ISN’T GOING ANYWHERE. HIS SEAT IS AS SAFE AS GASOLINE MAXINE’S OUT THERE IN THE L.A. GHETTO.
“If I was just guessing, he wanted to do the tax bill,” said the Nevada Congressman. “You know, John Boehner said the same thing: ‘Hey, when I checked all of the boxes I thought were important and I’m moving on to whatever else.’”
“The speaker is not resigning,” said Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong in a Monday statement directly refuting Amodei’s comments.
No, Hillary Clinton: It’s the Red States That Are Dynamic
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT PIECE CO-WRITTEN BY STEPHEN MOORE AND ART LAFFER
While giving a speech in Mumbai, India, Clinton boasted that she “won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product.” She went on: “So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward.”
The outpouring of residents from blue to red states almost has been one of the biggest demographic stories in American history, with a thousand people making the move every day on average. If you go to states such as Arizona, Florida, Tennessee and Texas these days, you’ll see many blue-state license plates.
Obama: I Hope to Create ‘A Million Young Barack Obamas’
WHY WON’T HE JUST GO AWAY??
“If I could do that effectively, then I would create a hundred or a thousand or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas, the next group of people who could take that baton in that relay race that is human progress and continue to build on the work that we have done,” Obama said.
Holder group will fight citizenship question on census
HOW DARE THEY ASK IF CITIZENS ARE CITIZENS!
A Democratic group headed by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will go to court over a decision by the Commerce Department to include a question about citizenship on the 2020 census.
“We will litigate to stop the Administration from moving forward with this irresponsible decision,” Holder said. “The addition of a citizenship question to the census questionnaire is a direct attack on our representative democracy.”
Calif. sheriff revolts against Sanctuary State law with bold new move
As of Monday, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s online inmate database includes the date and time of a prisoner’s release, a change that agency officials say will improve communication with federal law enforcement partners.
While the database will include release dates for all inmates, not just illegal immigrants, the newly public information is aimed at helping Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) take removable criminal aliens into custody after they serve local jail time.
Kathy Griffin to Attend White House Correspondents’ Dinner
THEY REALLY THINK THE PRESIDENT WOULD GET DOWN IN THE GUTTER WITH THIS TWO BIT TRAMP?
Deadline confirmed, “A potential showdown looms next month between comedian Kathy Griffin and President Donald Trump.” The extremely vocal comedienne has tried to make a comeback in her field with her provocative international tours titled “Laugh Your Head Off.” Recently, she announced several shows in the United States, and sold out tickets to her show in Carnegie Hall.

THESE IDIOTS DON’T HAVE A CLUE
Gohmert: Massive Omnibus Bill Could Cost Republicans the Majority
IF THE VOTERS HAND CONGRESS OVER TO THE DEMOCRATS TO TEACH THE REPUBLICANS A LESSON IT’S DEAD BANG CERTAIN THAT THE DEMS WILL TRY TO UNDO EVERYTHING TRUMP HAS ACCOMPLISHED.
“I’m afraid this could end up costing us the majority, in which case you will have total new leadership in the House,” Gohmert said of the budget signed by Trump last Friday. “I don’t know, the Senate likes to hang onto their bad leadership no matter what happens, but it would probably mean new leadership there.”
This Budget Was Designed to End the Trump Presidency
“Well, I’m telling you, it’s the deep state, I don’t care where you go, it’s the establishment trying to get rid of Donald Trump any which way they can.
You know what? There isn’t gonna be a wall and there isn’t gonna be anything serious on immigration and so having Trump be president is meaningless.”
That’s what this budget is designed to make you think, but after it’s signed into law. It’s 2,200 pages. There is no way anybody could have read all of it and digested it in the limited time they had before the vote.
The Nuclear Option — Collapsing News Network: CNN, MSM Hope Raunchy Sex Scandal Ends Trump
ALL DURING THE CLINTON YEARS WE WERE TOLD ‘IT WAS ONLY SEX’; IT WAS A PRIVATE MATTER; HE CAN GET ORAL SEX FROM A 22-YEAR-OLD AND STILL SCREW THE COUNTRY.
Frustrated, exhausted and completely out of ideas, the Grand Cyclops of the Washington Swamp has finally resorted to the only thing that has resulted in a presidential impeachment since Reconstruction: a raunchy sex scandal.
So they dredge up old stories from President Trump’s colorful past as a tabloid titan, real-estate showman and reality-TV star. Old stories — stories that keep evolving and remain unverified — about alleged affairs from long before he ever got into politics.
I have a gun because I can’t throw a rock at 2200 feet per second.
During the Obama reign of terror, the republicans passed a bill to repeal Obamacare seven times. This, of course, was just for effect, since there’s no way it was going anywhere while the Nubian Nightmare was in the White House.
“Give us a Senate majority!” they cried.
They got it.
“Give us a Republican president” they whined.
On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump, a Republican, was inaugurated. It is now March 21, 2018. Obamacare is still the law of the land. ‘Repeal and replace’ went back and forth for an entire year. To be voted down, the Democrats needed three Republican senators. It was the usual suspects — Collins, Graham, McCain, Rand Paul, and Jeff Flake.
Now the bill has come due. Either the republicans get $30 million to subsidize the Obamacare providers or the premiums will need to skyrocket. The GOP doesn’t want any money paying for abortions. The democrats are laughing their hineys off. We passed it, but now you own it!
Think about all the voters getting notice that their premiums are shooting up in September, just before the midterms. It doesn’t look too promising for the republican party. The sad part is that they don’t appear to really care about becoming the minority again. If that happens the president will have no support whatsoever in Washington.
It’s as If They Want to Lose in November… Republican Leaders to Fund Billions to Obamacare Markets in Latest Spending Bill
Last week treasonous #NeverTrump Senator Jeff Flake told a New Hampshire audience that maybe the Republican Party does not deserve to lead.
KEEP IN MIND THIS IS THE PUNK WHO ISN’T EVEN RUNNING AGAIN BECAUSE HE IS SO DESPISED IN ARIZONA
Speaker Paul Ryan is set to pass the second largest spending bill in US history next to Barack Obama’s trillion dollar failed stimulus. The budget funds all of the Democrat priorities, but will unlikely fund the Trump border wall.
The bill will also funnel billions of dollars to Obamacare markets.
It is almost as if they don’t want to win the majority again in 2018. Being in the majority takes away one of Congressional GOP leaders’ favorite excuses for screwing over their constituents back home.
AN OMNIBUS BILL IS ONE WHERE THEY JUST THROW ALL THEIR PORK PROJECTS IN ONE BIG PILE AND SPEND!!! SCREW THE TAXPAYERS! WHAT DO THEY KNOW?
Mark Meadows on Omnibus Bill: ‘Senate Democrats Seem to Be Calling Most of the Shots’
Multiple lawmakers suggested this week that the House will vote on the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill on Thursday. Congress needs to pass the spending bill before midnight Friday to avoid a government shutdown.
House first asked Meadows why House Republican leadership has yet to release the bill text days before Congress has to vote on it.
Meadows argued that the “Senate Democrats seem to be calling most of the shots.”
U.S. Supreme Court rules Arizona can’t deny ‘dreamers’ driver’s licenses
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected the last-ditch plea by Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich to uphold a 2012 executive order by then-Gov. Jan Brewer to deny driver’s licenses to DACA recipients, an order current Gov. Doug Ducey has left in place.
The justices gave no reason for their ruling.
Illegal Aliens ‘Immune From Prosecution for Identity Theft,’ CNSNews.com Story Shows
“According to a Treasury Department report, from 2011 to 2016, the IRS detected 1.3 million cases of identity theft perpetrated by illegal aliens, but they couldn’t cite a single case that was referred for prosecution. Not one.”
“And, what we have here, Tucker, is a long-term policy, I believe, by the IRS simply to ignore it, because they want the tax money paid by people.”
Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor Charged With Murder Of Justine Damond
Somali-American police officer Mohamed Noor shot Aussie Justine Damond dead in July of 2017.
I PREDICT HE WILL BE ACQUITTED ON ALL CHARGES.
Noor’s partner was described as “stunned” by the shooting.
CBS Minneapolis reported that Damond “made the 911 call and was speaking to police officers Saturday night. They were near the alley when the officer in the passenger seat reached across and shot her. A cell phone was found near Damond’s body.”
2 Republican senators suggest they’d support impeaching Trump if he fired Mueller
Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake both broached the prospect of impeachment on Tuesday.
Graham and Flake’s commitments to this position were hardly rock-solid and may well not be shared by very many other Republicans in the Senate (or the House of Representatives, which is where the impeachment process would have to begin). Still, the statements are a significant warning to Trump from two members of his own party about how Mueller’s dismissal could end for him.
RAUNER NARROWLY DEFEATED NEWCOMER JEANNE IVES FOR THE REPUBLICAN GUBERNATORIAL NOMINATION. HE WILL BE OPPOSED BY A FAT UNION HACK NAMED J.B. PRITZGER. I SAID THIS MORNING I WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED TO FIND THAT THOUSANDS OF DEMOCRATS FILLED OUT A REPUBLICAN BALLOT FOR RAUNER BECAUSE REPUBLICANS HATE HIM IN THIS STATE. PRITZGER BECOMING GOVERNOR WILL BE A SLAM DUNK.
NAILED IT!!! FIGURED CHRISSY WOULD LIKE THIS ONE.
[CtH: Nice! LOL Reminds me of Orthodox Easter of 1972, when I was in Moscow. We went for a stroll around Red Square before bed and, as we were coming out, we saw a tall office building right across the street that had its windows lit in the shape of a cross! I’ve always wondered if anyone got shipped off to a gulag for doing that.]
Before something hits back.
Just a mix of the usual bushwa.
Lindsey Graham warns Kim Jong Un: If you play Trump, we’ll end you.
LINDSEY, YOU NEED TO SHUT YOUR PIEHOLE AND LEAVE THIS TO SOMEONE WITH CARBON STEEL TESTICLES…THAT AIN’T YOU.
Then Graham added a “word of warning” for the leader of the nuclear-armed hermit kingdom.
“The worst possible thing you can do is meet with President Trump in person and try to play him,” the senator said. “If you do that, it will be the end of you — and your regime.”
Obama Might Be Coming To Netflix
Obama does not intend to directly confront his Republican successor, President Donald Trump, the report notes, but he could use the programs to correct what he believes to be misinformation spread using online platforms. He could also use Netflix to push-back against his conservative critics.
HE INTENDS TO DISPENSE THE PHONY CRAP HE ALWAYS DOES… HE WOULDN’T DARE FACE THE DONALD.
Obama has a close relationship with Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, who is married to Nicole Avant, an activist who served as the former president’s ambassador to the Bahamas. A Netflix spokesman declined to comment to The New York Times about any discussions.
Poll: Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill’s Re-Election Bid Is in Trouble
HER LAST TERM WAS GIFT WRAPPED BY TODD AKIN’S INANE COMMENTS… THIS IS THE END OF THE LINE FOR AIR CLAIRE.
A new poll shows Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), one of ten Democratic senators up for re-election in a state won by President Trump in 2016, trails likely Republican challenger Josh Hawley by a 52 percent to 44 percent margin.
Baltimore Mayor Charges Taxpayers to Send Students to Anti-Gun March
Baltimore mayor Pugh promised free T-shirts and free lunches to students who board 60 city buses later this month to protest gun violence. The grade school protestors, in exchange, will provide advocacy and a convenient photo-op for an ambitious politician.
But since when have cities become political action committees and their municipal budgets seed money for political organizing? The stunt is irresponsible and borderline abusive.
‘Get your facts straight, love’: Ingraham’s segment with Baltimore mayor overheats
“You’re funding buses, in part, to go down to Washington, and yet you have a budget deficit–” Ingraham said.
“You need to get your facts straight, love,” Pugh shot back. “I don’t know whether you’re trying to become the communications director for the Trump administration–”
IT NEVER FAILS…WHEN A LIBERAL STARTS LOSING AN ARGUMENT, THE NAME CALLING STARTS.
In a heated back and forth, Ingraham pointed out the poor numbers surrounding Baltimore’s education system: It included a 10-year low in enrollment, a $130 million deficit for 2018, and 115 personnel layoffs. Mayor Pugh foolishly says she doesn’t know what that has to do with this protest.
Liberal 9th Circuit Court Of Appeals Allows Kids’ Lawsuit Against Trump For Not Fighting Global Warming To Proceed
(INSERT GROAN HERE….)
A federal appeals court Wednesday rejected the Trump administration’s attempt to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a group of kids who want to force the government to do more to fight climate change.
Flake to introduce bill to nullify Trump’s tariffs
HE’S NOT EVEN RUNNING FOR OFFICE AGAIN BECAUSE ARIZONA IS SICK OF HIM, SO HE’S BEING AS BIG A PAIN AS HE CAN BE UNTIL HE’S ESCORTED OUT OF TOWN.
Republicans worked frantically, without success, for days to publicly and privately urge the administration to back down or at least narrow the tariffs.
“These so-called ‘flexible tariffs’ are a marriage of two lethal poisons to economic growth — protectionism and uncertainty. Trade wars are not won, they are only lost. Congress cannot be complicit as the administration courts economic disaster,” Flake added on Thursday.
CNN’s Erin Burnett: If Trump Solves North Korea Crisis, “That would be going down as a Great President”
As bad as she hates to admit it, CNN’s Erin Burnett said tonight that if President Trump can solve the problem with North Korea, “that would be going down as a great President. There is no way around that, and that is the reality here.”
Burnett said that on the news that there may be a breakthrough with North Korea.
Dictator Kim Jong-un says he wants to meet with Trump, and Trump says he will do so “by May.”
Lou Dobbs: If two ‘RINOs’ continue to fight Trump they’ll see largest loss of seats by majority party in a century
Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs delivered a solemn monologue on Wednesday in which he urged Republicans–specifically House Speaker Paul Ryan (Wis.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.)– to cooperate with the president’s proposed tariffs on foreign steel and aluminum lest the party suffer historic defeat in November’s midterm elections.
Abstinence-only education making a comeback under Trump
Abstinence-only education — encouraging adolescents to wait until marriage for sex — is making a comeback under President Trump
In a marked departure from the previous administration, conservatives at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) are putting an emphasis on abstinence to reduce teen pregnancy rates.
ABSTINENCE IS THE ONLY FORM OF BIRTH CONTROL THAT IS 100% EFFECTIVE.
Winning: U.S. Steel to Call Back 500 Employees to Illinois Plant After Trump Announces Tariffs on Foreign Steel
I’VE HEARD ALL FORMS OF ARGUMENTS ON THESE TARIFFS. I DON’T CLAIM TO UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING, BUT I TRUST BEING THE SAVVY BUSINESS MAN TRUMP IS (WE’VE NEVER HAD ONE AS PRESIDENT BEFORE)… THIS IS PROBABLY A NEGOTIATING TOOL TO BRING THE WORLD TRADE INTO AMERICA’S FAVOR INSTEAD OF BEING CONSTANTLY ROLLED BY CHINA AND OTHERS.
The steel company announced that it would need the additional personnel to support increased demand for steel after President Trump announced last week that the U.S. would impose tariffs on aluminum and steel imports.
Company leaders praised President Trump for his decision to increase competition among different companies, adding that steel imports threaten this country’s economic and national security.
The Granite City plant idled its blast furnaces and its steel-making facilities in December 2015 and idled its hot strip mill in January 2016 because of a sluggish market.
Why Trump Is So Hated by Leftists
My brother expressed his disgust watching an animated TV show trashing Trump, titled Our Cartoon President. Incredibly, leftists have hijacked the airwaves and everywhere people gather to exploit as platforms to spread their vitriolic, insane hatred for Trump. Outrageously, TV coverage of the Olympics included leftist hatred for the Trump administration.
I think Trump is hated by the left because his ideology, his words and actions, are the exact opposite of the left’s ideology. He is not a “globalist,” but loves America, our homeland; he knows that we can’t continue being the world’s number-one giver if we are not safe and successful ourselves. He knows that capitalism, not communism, will feed the poor; capitalism makes everyone richer, while communism makes everyone equally poor. He knows that free enterprise and less government regulation will provide jobs and boost our economy, not socialist handouts and overregulation.
Hunters Donate Almost 290,000 Pounds of Venison for Hungry Missourians
I’VE NEVER HUNTED, BUT MY FISHING BUDDY OF MORE THAN 20 YEARS HUNTS DEER WITH A BOW. HE NORMALLY GETS ONE OR TWO EVERY YEAR. HE HAS ONE MADE INTO BURGERS AND STEAKS AND HAS THE OTHER PROCESSED AND DONATES IT TO THE LOCAL FOOD PANTRY. VENISON IS VERY LEAN AND HEALTHY FOR YOU. SUCH ARE THE PRINCIPLES OF THE “DEMONS” WHO BELONG TO THE NRA.
Fox 2 Now reports the MDC released a statement, saying, “This season’s total of 289,292 pounds of venison included nearly 5,600 whole deer. Hunters donated 198,277 pounds of venison the year before. Since the program was started in 1992, Share the Harvest has provided nearly 4 million pounds of lean, healthy venison to help feed hungry Missourians.”
Programs to donate venison to the hungry exist in numerous states. Nebraska has a program called Hunters Helping the Hungry, Pennsylvania has a Share the Harvest program, and Maryland has Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry.
Virginia Congressional Candidate Cuts Husband’s AR-15 Into A Possible Illegal Short-Barreled Rifle
CONGRATULATIONS… SHORTENING THE BARREL OF YOUR HUSBAND’S AR-15 HAS TRANSFORMED IT INTO AN ILLEGAL WEAPON…IDIOT.
As numerous individuals pointed out to Mallard on social media once the clip was circulated, many of which she dismissed as “NRA trolls,” the act of creating a short barreled rifle with a barrel less than 16-inches long is strictly regulated under the National Firearms Act.
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.
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
Former late-night icon Jay Leno says today’s crop of late-night television personalities have turned the formerly escapist form of entertainment into a constant, “depressing” drumbeat of criticism against President Donald Trump.
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.
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.”
