Neutered Dems are all bark, no bite on Trump’s nominees
pants16And even the press at this point seems to be admitting that there’s not much drama to a story about the Democratic minority trying to stop Trump’s nominees.
15285054_1465998070081350_3457795709693296452_n“Dems to unload on Mnuchin,” said a headline in Politico. The story said Democratic questions will “make for some uncomfortable hearings and negative headlines,” but aside from that possible discomfort, the story said nothing about actually blocking the nominee.

WI Lawmaker: Dems Are Stalling, Recount Will Not Be Completed, State Will Be Forfeited
Duffy said Democrats and far left Green Party supporters are stalling the recount in Dane County Wisconsin, where Madison is located. The county is holding a hand recount. The recount will not be completed by the deadline on December 20th. Therefore, according to Rep. Duffy, the state will quite possibly be forced to forfeit their electoral votes.
This was the plan all along. Democrats knew they couldn’t make up 20,000 votes. But they also knew if they stalled on the recount the state could not certify the vote.
Wisconsin, won fairly by Donald Trump, will forfeit.

Democrats Must Dig Faster and Use Bigger Shovels
Things the Democratic elites should do in order to live up to their party principles.
Barack Obama was an affirmative action president. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Donna Brazile were affirmative action DNC chairs. Hillary was an affirmative action presidential nominee.
As a result, the Democratic party has lost the White House, Senate, House of Representatives, many governorships, state and local legislatures, as well as the ability to make Supreme Court appointments that will determine the direction of the Judiciary for a generation. The Democrat party today is the weakest it has been since the 1920s.
My only regret is that the Democrats hadn’t tested all of their half-baked ideas on their party first, before forcing them on the entire nation. Had they done that, their party would not have survived natural selection and today’s Republicans would have to compete with a lot more sensible group of people.

Trump’s Four-Pronged Plan to Jumpstart America’s Economy
Both parties have been shocked to the core by Trump’s election — so there is less chance Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will wage major battles to stop most items on Trump’s economic agenda.
But they will complain. One likely item on the jobs agenda is Trump’s promise to cut the corporate tax rate. Corporations have been a favorite target of Democrats, but the political tactics didn’t work on Nov. 8. Most Americans in swing states just wanted more jobs and better wages.
Laffer says the corporate tax rate in the United States is the highest in the 35 member-nations of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. The United States recently overtook Japan with a top federal corporate rate of 35 percent — or 39.1 percent, if you include state taxes.
Trump would like to cut the top rate to 15 percent.

CNN Host Acts As Condescending As Possible To Trump Supporters In Focus Group
The “New Day” host was conducting a discussion with several longtime Donald Trump supporters and was skeptical when one woman claimed that 3 million illegal immigrants cast election ballots in California.
“Did you hear President Obama say that illegal people could vote?” she pressed. “Tell me, where?”
Another woman offered that you can “Google it and find it on Facebook,” which Camerota proceeded to do.

Joe Manchin may be Trump’s energy secretary
THERE IS A METHOD TO HIS MADNESS… BOTH COME FROM RED STATES WITH REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS, WHO WOULD APPOINT THEIR SUCCESSORS.
The senator from West Virginia would be the second Democrat that Trump is reportedly considering for a Cabinet post. The Trump team formally announced Thursday that Sen. Heidi Heitkamp from oil giant North Dakota, who opposes President Obama’s climate rules and supports the development of clean coal, will be visiting with Trump in New York on Friday.

Texas to Require That Aborted Babies Be Buried or Cremated
The new rules are part what the governor said are meant to “reflect our respect for the sanctity of life” and “turn the tides against the soulless abortion industry in Texas,” according to a fundraising email he sent in July, HuffPost reported.
The cost of cremation, which can be as high as $10,000, will be paid by the facilities that dispose of the aborted baby’s remains, the article noted.
The Texas Tribune reported that the new rules don’t apply to “miscarriages or abortions that occur at home.” Furthermore, birth or death certificates won’t be “required for ‘proper disposition’ under the rules.”
According to the Tribune, health officials said the rules will go into effect on Dec. 19.

Dems Think They Can Pressure Trump Into Keeping Overtime Regulation
I’M HOPING TRUMP WON’T PLAY BY THESE CLOWNS’ RULES.
The regulation, enacted by Obama and his labor secretary, requires most employers to pay overtime to salaried workers who earn less than $47,476 a year. It was supposed to go into full-effect on December 1st, but has been temporarily blocked by a Texas federal judge. Republican leadership on the Hill has already said the rule tops the list of Obama regulations on their chopping block list

World Mayors Gather To Plot Trump-Era Climate Plan
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR THEM TO REALIZE THAT TRUMP IS NOT THE SOCIALIST THAT OBAMA WAS AND WITHOUT AMERICA’S PARTICIPATION ALL THEY HAVE IS THE HOT AIR THEY CLAIM TO BE WORRIED ABOUT
As leaders of busy, polluted cities home to millions of people, they want countries to push on with adopting the so-called Paris Agreement to limit harmful emissions — an accord that Trump has cast doubt on.
“In the aftermath of this election there’s never been a more important time for those city leaders to stay on course — the whole world is counting on them,” said Clover Moore, mayor of Sydney, Australia.

Obama set to give ‘final’ counterterrorism speech to troops
Will describe success of his ‘no combat’ strategy
obamajpeg-04a87_s878x615SPEC OPS ARE THE MOST EFFECTIVE KILLING MACHINES ON THE PLANET. IMAGINE WHAT THESE HARDASSES ARE THINKING AS THEY GET LECTURED BY THE WORLD’S #1 CANDYASS.
The White House said Mr. Obama will travel on Tuesday to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, the same military base where he declared in 2014 that U.S. troops deploying to Iraq as military advisers would have no combat role against Islamic State extremists.
“We will train and equip our partners. We will advise them and we will assist them,” Mr. Obama told troops at the time. “As your commander-in-chief, I will not commit you and the rest of our Armed Forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq.”

White House Announces Support For Requiring Women To Register For Draft
“As old barriers for military service are being removed, the administration supports — as a logical next step — women registering for the Selective Service,” Price said, using the formal name for the military draft.
HE HAS TWO CHANCES OF GETTING THIS: SLIM AND NONE. FAT ALREADY LEFT TOWN

Oh Boy: Some Electoral College Electors Form 527 Group To Prevent Trump From Becoming President
An upstart group of Electoral College voters have formed a political non-profit organization to fund a campaign to deny Donald Trump the presidency.
But while a campaign organizer says the movement has secured one anonymous Republican, it remains an unlikely, last-ditch effort for opponents of the president-elect.
The paperwork filed Tuesday with the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office creates a “527” group, which can raise unlimited donations from individuals, corporations and labor unions for political activities.

Crowley: The Party of Obama and Its Bitter Reckoning
Eight years ago, the Democratic Party gambled that a young, inexperienced but charismatic senator could deliver the presidency and with it, sustained national electoral success. They were half-right: they got the presidency but lost the country.
It turns out that President Obama’s promised “fundamental transformation of the nation” was not what it was cracked up to be — and it instead cracked up his party.
They have learned nothing from the Republican sweeps of 2010, 2014 and 2016 — because committed leftist ideologues can’t — won’t — adapt.

It’s a Beautiful Day

You know that commercial on TV that says: If you have an erection lasting more than 4 hours consult a doctor? If you have a slight smile on your face that’s lasted almost a week, should you seek medical help? Not really. Just look at all the paid protesters and the little snowflakes who need coloring books and Play-Doh to cope with the fact they didn’t get their own way. That’s what decades of parental indulgence, never punishing kids, telling them everything is someone else’s fault and everybody gets a trophy, so nobody has hurt feelings because they lost.

As you can well imagine, the Sunday BS sessions were all still fuming about how they could get it so wrong. They could probably use a few cases of this:

New York Times publisher vows to ‘rededicate’ paper to reporting honestly
AFTER BEING CAUGHT CO-ORDINATING WITH THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN AND PURPOSELY BURYING ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT HER, THEY PROMISE TO DO BETTER. DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH.
Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., the paper’s embattled publisher, appealed to Times readers for their continued support.
“We cannot deliver the independent, original journalism for which we are known without the loyalty of our subscribers,” the letter states
She wrote about another reader who asked that the paper should focus on the electorate instead of “pushing the limited agenda of your editors.”
“Please come down from your New York City skyscraper and join the rest of us.”
Sulzberger — who insisted that the paper covered both candidates fairly — also sent a note to staffers on Friday reminding the newsroom to “give the news impartially, without fear or favor

Obama Takes In Thousands of Illegal Muslim Migrants Who Couldn’t Get In to Australia
HE’S TRYING TO CAUSE AS MUCH PAIN AS HE POSSIBLY CAN BEFORE HE’S KICKED OUT
Obama is trying to sneak in thousands more Muslims before the door closes. And he’s trying to get them anywhere he can. If Australia won’t take in Muslims, Obama will show up asking the Aussies to send them on over.
We’re not even being told the total numbers who will shortly be making their way to our shores, but the Journal notes that two of the camps located on Naru and Manus Islands currently hold a combined total of more than 1,300 of them. And where do these migrants come from? The majority are from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Iran and Sri Lanka

U.S. to push ahead on climate pact before Trump takes over: Kerry
“Until January 20 when this administration is over, we intend to do everything possible to meet our responsibility to future generations to be able to address this threat to life itself on the planet.”
President Barack Obama spent five hours golfing Saturday and returned to the links again Sunday as cities across the country were convulsed in violent protests by Obama’s fellow Democrats about the election of Republican Donald Trump to succeed Obama. Obama has not issued a statement about the protests that have included calls to kill Trump, kill police, rape Melania Trump and where numerous reporters have been attacked by pro-Hillary protesters.
THEN ONE LAST WORLD TOUR ON OUR DIME
Obama’s final foreign trip a ‘group therapy’ session
The president will travel to Athens on Monday, then to Berlin on Wednesday and finally Lima, Peru, on Friday. He’s expected to return to Washington, DC, on Sunday.
In a moment of deep shock and depression in Europe — the US was not supposed to elect Donald Trump — this visit has become a kind of group therapy by which European leaders will try to reassure themselves that the America we know won’t disappear,” Josef Joffe, a Stanford University scholar, told the Journal

Michael Moore: We should run Oprah, Tom Hanks for president
“Look that’s the sideshow that needs to happen in a week like this but, frankly, Democrats would be better off if they ran Oprah or Tom Hanks.” “Why don’t we run beloved people? We have so many of them. The Republicans do this. They run Reagan and the Terminator and other people. Why don’t we…why don’t we run somebody that the American people love?” he said.

SPEAKING OF ORCA:
Oprah Winfrey Faces Backlash About Her Comments Following Donald Trump’s Win
While speaking to the Associated Press on Thursday, Oprah Winfrey admitted that she was in disbelief at Donald Trump’s win and Hillary Clinton’s shocking defeat on Tuesday.

But the media mogul was seemingly so impressed by the President-elect’s meeting with President Obama that her feelings took a different turn, as she tweeted, “Everybody take a deep breath! Hope Lives!”
HER LEFTIST BUDDIES ARE NOT HAPPY

GOP To Use Previously Unheard Of Tactic To Slam Dunk Trump Agenda
The Republican congressional leadership is seriously considering an unprecedented procedure to guarantee that its and President-elect Donald Trump’s highest priorities are quickly enacted soon after Congress convenes next year.
The key is “reconciliation,” the part of the congressional budget process that allows highly controversial policies to be considered in the Senate without any possibility of them being filibustered.

Donald Trump Picks Reince Priebus as Chief of Staff
WE JUST HAVE TO TRUST HE HAS A PLAN.
In selecting Mr. Priebus, the president-elect passed over Stephen K. Bannon, the right-wing media mogul who oversaw his presidential campaign. If Mr. Trump had appointed Mr. Bannon, a fierce critic of the Republican establishment, it would have demonstrated a continued disdain for a party that Mr. Trump fought throughout his campaign.
Mr. Trump’s choice is certain to anger some of his most conservative supporters, many of whom expect him to battle the Washington establishment over issues like taxes, immigration, trade, health care and the environment. They view Mr. Priebus as a deal maker who will be too eager to push the new president toward compromise.

HIS CHIEF ADVISOR
Antidiscrimination groups denounce Trump’s appointment of Steve Bannon
HE’S GOT ALL THE RIGHT PEOPLE PISSED AT HIM
A chorus of advocacy groups, commentators and congressional Democrats denounced Bannon as a proponent of racist, anti-Semitic and misogynistic views as Trump began his first full week as president-elect. Trump named Bannon his chief strategist and senior counselor on Sunday while also appointing Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus to be his chief of staff.
It is easy to see why the KKK views Trump as their champion when Trump appoints one of the foremost peddlers of White Supremacist themes and rhetoric as his top aide. Bannon was ‘the main driver behind Breitbart becoming a white ethno-nationalist propaganda mill,’ according to the Southern Poverty Law Center

Sen. Manchin calls Harry Reid ‘absolute embarrassment’ for anti-Trump rant
DON’T BE SURPRISED IF, AT SOME POINT, HE SWITCHES TO REPUBLICAN
“Senator Harry Reid’s statement today attacking President-elect Trump is wrong! It is an absolute embarrassment to the Senate as an institution, our Democratic party, and the nation,” Mr. Manchin, West Virginia Democrat, said in a statement released late Friday.
“I want to be very clear, he does not speak for me,” said Mr. Manchin, one of the most conservative Democrats in the upper chamber of the U.S. Congress.
Mr. Reid, Nevada Democrat, lashed out at Americans who backed Mr. Trump, saying they confirmed the ascendance of “hate and bigotry in America.”
THIS IS WHAT MANCHIN WAS TALKING ABOUT:

No, seriously.

She used her profile as a Fox News contributor, her nationally syndicated radio show and her website LifeZette.com to advocate on his behalf. Trump also tapped into Ingraham’s years of dirt-digging on the Clintons to sharpen his attacks on the Democratic nominee.
Ingraham would not comment for this article. A source familiar told The Hill that she’s in contact with people in Trump’s inner circle and has expressed interest in the role.

BREAKING NEWS: Chicago Cubs are being forced to give up their World Series title. (self.The_Donald)
Cleveland Indians fans have rioted across the country in protest of the 2016 World Series. Despite knowing the rules of the game prior to playing, they were unhappy they lost and demanded the outcome to be changed.
They could be heard chanting #NotOurWorldSeriesChampion all across America. Even though the Cubs won 4 games and the Indians only won 3, since both teams scored 27 total runs throughout all 7 games, they are being declared co-world champions.
When questioned, Commissioner Manfred stated, “We felt as though it was the right thing to do for the nation. What kind of example would Major League Baseball be setting if we expected the adults who play this game, and their fans, to gracefully accept defeat? Instead of creating a bigger divide between the Cubs and Indians, MLB is confident that the Cubs will gladly share their victory with the Indians.”

Losers: Clinton Campaign Ignored Bill’s Advice And Felt White Working Class Voters Weren’t Worth The Time
In February of 2016, The New York Times reported that everyone in Clinton land thought they were going to slaughter Donald Trump. It was hubris. It was typical elitism from the liberal elite. And in the end, the Trump campaign smashed the face of the Clinton operation with a brick, doused it in gasoline, and set it on fire. It was an upset that no one, except for white working class America and die-hard Trump supporters, saw coming, which explains the epic temper tantrums emanating from the Left.
