Friday Leftovers

The original plan was to do this when I finished delivering my papers. Then I decide to take a nap. It was Friday, so breakfast with my uncles. Then I went for my first appointment to have cortisone injections in my back. I came home and the rest of the day was pretty well shot. However, there was a lot going on and I felt obligated to lay some of this down since I have a couple hours before I’m off again in 15 degree weather to keep people informed.

IS HE IN OR OUT?

I tuned in to C-Span Thursday to watch that flea-infested gutter rat Stuart Smalley resign from the Senate. I watched almost 5 minutes of it before my gag reflex betrayed me and I had to turn it off.

Then, being the petty little prick he is, he whined about Trump and Judge Moore. Then it dawned on me. He’s waiting to see if Moore wins next Tuesday. If he does he’ll probably un-resign and claim if Moore stays, he will too. Notice Conyers and Franken are the Democrats’ sacrificial lambs because both are extremely safe seats. How much more liberal can you get than Detroit?

Sen. Al Franken Will Resign ‘in the Coming Weeks’

“A couple months ago I felt that we had entered an important moment in the history of this country. We finally listened to women.”

“Then the conversation turned to me,” Franken added.

Mika Brzezinski Sets Internet On Fire With 5 Words After Franken’s Resignation

Ready?’: Democratic senators and staffers shed tears during Al Franken’s resignation speech

Only one Republican sat in on Franken’s speech, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. The rest of the Republican side sat empty.

If you as a woman truly believe a man is a creepy serial sex assaulter of women, do you get all misty-eyed and line up to tightly hug him when he resigns from the Senate following your demand he do so in the face of numerous accusations of sexual assault? If you are a Democrat woman senator, the answer is ‘yes’, even though several of the allegations involved Franken groping and forcing kisses during hugs. Franken was also photographed assaulting a woman in her sleep.

In his speech, Franken name-checked former Sen. Paul Wellstone, the longtime Minnesota Democrat on three occasions. Franken famously defeated former Sen. Norm Coleman in 2009 by 312 votes — who Wellstone was set to face off against in 2002 until a plane crash took his life only eleven days before the election — giving Democrats the much-needed 60th vote for a brief period of time that allowed them to pass the Affordable Care Act.

REMEMBER THIS LITTLE SNIPPET? I DO.

THIS WAS WHEN ALL THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS WHO HAD COME TO SHOW THEIR RESPECT WERE ORDERED TO LEAVE, THEN CAME THE PEP RALLY.

If Moore wins and Franken un-resigns, will Senate Democrats back him up?
He was careful this morning not to admit to any wrongdoing, merely saying that he’d lost the confidence of his colleagues and therefore had to go. Imagine now that Moore wins and, as expected, McConnell’s caucus immediately starts hemming and hawing about whether he should be expelled.

Chris Matthews: ‘The Worst You Can Say About Democrats Is They’re Too Pure’

ABC’s Rick Klein: Franken didn’t show any contrition in resignation speech

With Al Franken out, Democrats hope to make Republicans answer for Roy Moore and Donald Trump

OK, WE GAVE UP TWO OF THE SCORE OF MISCREANTS IN OUR PARTY, SO GET RID OF ONE THAT IT’S NEVER BEEN PROVED HE DID ANYTHING WRONG. WE JUST DON’T WANT ANY OF THAT ‘GOD’ STUFF AROUND HERE.

If Moore, accused of preying on young girls, is elected, Democrats will hammer Republicans unceasingly. Even if he’s not, Democrats made clear their intent to raise anew the several allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Trump before the 2016 election in a bid to make Republicans answer on this politically super-charged issue.

[CtH: Every time this is mentioned, the Republican being targeted should recite the names of Clinton’s accusers and refuse to say anything else.]

CBS Mourns Franken Resignation: ‘The End to a Potentially Storied Career’
You know, Al Franken is one of very few Democrats in Congress who can truly claim to have had a nationwide progressive profile, even before he came to the Senate in 2009, because of his Air America radio show.  And that led to him having, you know, a true ability to raise money for other lawmakers.

Female lieutenant governor expected to replace Franken
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is expected to appoint his lieutenant governor and close ally, Tina Smith, to Al Franken’s seat, three people familiar with the Democratic governor’s thinking said.

But that appointment would be just the start of an upheaval in Minnesota. Part of the reason Smith could be heading to the Senate, the sources said, is that she has indicated no interest in running for Congress in the past and would not run for the remainder of Franken’s term, which expires in 2020, in a 2018 special election. That would clear the way for a wide open Democratic primary next year.

Civil War in Detroit’s Dirty Dynasty

John Conyers II is out. Long live John Conyers III.

After spending almost 60 years in Congress as a politician and a staffer, Rep. John Conyers II has to decide which of his many relatives to pass Michigan’s 13th congressional district to. It’s like King Lear, if Shakespeare’s fictional monarch had been forced to step down after groping a woman in church.

The 13th is a very nice district to inherit. Conyers has won it by 77%, 79% and 82%. Fidel Castro couldn’t ask for better elections. Whichever Conyers clan member gets it will be staying in Congress for 60 years.

And will inherit Rep. Conyers’ government Cadillac Escalade.

Frankenbooger, Franken-goner

In full disclosure I can’t stand this overbearing loudmouth punk. Never could. When I first saw him on SNL I wondered where the hell they found this squinty-eyed little moron. Through massive vote fraud, he actually managed to steal a seat in the US Senate from Norm Coleman. His entire tenure has been fraught with crass, vulgar behavior. During Senate hearings he’s been rude, profane, and boorish. Well, karma’s a bitch, and it looks like it may have bitten him in the hind quarters … finally.  Check this out:

‘It’s my right as an entertainer’: Franken staffer comes forward as 7th accuser of sexual misconduct

It appears the worst is not yet behind Al Franken. The Democratic Minnesota Senator was hit by another sexual harassment allegation on Wednesday, bringing the total up to seven.

“He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me. It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like ‘Wait, what is happening?’ But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked. I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it towards the door and he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer.’”

As Franken’s support collapses, Democrats expect resignation

Though the writing appeared to be on the wall, Franken’s departure was not certain. A tweet posted Wednesday evening on Franken’s Twitter account said: “Senator Franken is talking with his family at this time and plans to make an announcement in D.C. tomorrow. Any reports of a final decision are inaccurate.” Late in the day, Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York added his voice. “I consider Senator Franken a dear friend and greatly respect his accomplishments, but he has a higher obligation to his constituents and the Senate, and he should step down immediately,” Schumer said.

WHEN SCHUMER SAYS IT’S TIME TO GO, PACK YOUR BAGS.

[CtH: Makes me sick they’re leaving it up to him, while simultaneously talking about maybe blocking Moore from taking his seat if he wins!]

MPR Reporting Al Franken to Resign on Thursday

UPDATE: Sen. Franken’s official Twitter account replied to the tweet, saying that the Senator had not yet made a decision. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/christinerousselle/2017/12/06/breaking-al-franken-to-resign-on-thursday-n2419169

So, What Happens to Al Franken’s Seat If He Resigns? The walls are closing in on Sen. Al Franken, with a seventh accuser stepping forward today and multiple Democrats calling for his resignation in the aftermath, including DNC chair Tom Perez and more than 20 Senators (and counting).

Franken is expected to give remarks tomorrow and, well, it’d be pretty crazy if he didn’t resign. The former SNL star’s time in public service should be drawing to a close, and provided it did, what happens next in Minnesota politics? Democratic Governor Mark Dayton is given the ability to make a “temporary appointment to fill any vacancy,” according to state law.

In other words, Dayton can pick whoever he wants and this pick is guaranteed to be a Democrat. Which Democrat? That is still up in the air, but leading candidates would have to be Rep. Keith Ellison, Attorney General Lori Swanson, State Auditor Rebecca Otto and Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith.

MY PERSONAL GUESS IS HE’LL PICK THE MUSLIM RACE HUSTLER. HE’S THE MOST RADICAL OF THE BUNCH (I HOPE).

IN OTHER NEWS: REMEMBER THAT IMPEACHMENT VOTE FROM CONGRESSMAN GORK, THE CAVEMAN?  YEAH, IT DIDN’T GO SO WELL.

An attempt to impeach Trump today failed 364-58

There are really two ways to look at this effort. One is that this attempt to impeach President Trump got slapped down hard today.  The other is that there are now 58 Democrats willing to attach their names to this desperate action which their own leadership is officially against, at least for the moment.  Again, the message isn’t ‘No’ it’s ‘Not yet.’ The White House responded by labeling Rep. Green and those who voted with him extremists. “Their time would be better spent focusing on tax relief for American families and businesses, and working to fund our troops and veterans through the holiday season rather than threaten a government shutdown.”

John Conyers III Allegedly Body-Slammed His Girlfriend And Cut Her With A Knife

HIS DADDY IS PROUD OF THIS CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK.

John Conyers III, son of disgraced former Rep. John Conyers Jr., allegedly body-slammed his girlfriend and then spat on her during a domestic dispute, according to a new report. Conyers Jr., who resigned on Tuesday after a flood of sexual harassment allegations against him, has said that he wants Conyers III to run for his empty seat.

BARACK OBAMA Was Worst Economic President Since 1949 – Now He’s TAKING CREDIT For Trump’s Booming Economy Here is the complete list of average annual real GDP growth by postwar president (in descending order):

  • Johnson (1964-68) 5.3%
  • Kennedy (1961-63) 4.3%
  • Clinton (1993-2000) 3.9%
  • Reagan (1981-88) 3.5%
  • Carter (1977-80) 3.3%
  • Eisenhower (1953-60) 3.0% (Post-WWII average: 2.9%)
  • Nixon (1969-74) 2.8%
  • Ford (1975-76) 2.6%
  • G. H. W. Bush (1989-92) 2.3%
  • G. W. Bush (2001-08) 2.1%
  • Truman (1946-52) 1.7%
  • Obama (2009-15) 1.5%

President Trump’s first year in office will beat Barack Obama’s best year ever. President Trump has seen quarterly GDP rates of 1.2%, 3.1% and 3.3%.  The New York Federal Reserve revised its estimated fourth quarter GDP of 2017 to 3.93. This will give President Trump an annual GDP rate of 2.9 in 2017 or possibly higher.

At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.” He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.”

[CtH: Typical Obama. He has a long history of taking credit for other’s successes, while denying (like Hillary) that any of his numerous failures had anything to do with him. Also, typical of Obama is the backward tilt of his head, so he’s always looking down his nose at everyone. ]

Obama Invokes Nazi Germany, Warns Against Voters Becoming ‘Complacent’ The two-term Democrat expressed the importance of a free press and urged the country not to “grow complacent,” saying “we have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.” Hinz writes Obama then brought up the specter of Adolf Hitler, who came to power in Democratic Germany amid the financial crisis of the 1930’s. “Sixty million people died…” he reports Obama said. “So, you’ve got to pay attention. And vote.” On Twitter, Hinz called the comments “remarkable” and framed them as a rebuke of current president Donald Trump. Take that, @realDonaldTrump: @BarackObama makes clear his view that a complacent America could be headed the way of Nazi Germany. Read his remarkable comments at #EconomicClub of Chicago.

[CtH: Mr. FORMER President, sir, we were paying attention and we VOTED.  That’s why Hillary isn’t president.]

Franklin Graham: No President in My Lifetime Has Defended the Christian Faith Like Trump

In a Dec. 1 post on Facebook, the day the tree was lit, Rev. Graham said, “Never in my lifetime have we had a president willing to take a strong, outspoken stand for the Christian faith like President Donald J. Trump has.” “Whether you are Protestant, evangelical, Orthodox, Catholic — all Christians need to get behind him with our prayers,” said Graham.

“For Christians this is a holy season, the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Christmas story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all – the gift of God’s love for all of humanity.

CAN YOU IMAGINE OBAMA SAYING THAT? NEITHER CAN I.

‘My Dad is a F*cking Player’: Rep. John Conyers Son’s Deleted Tweet Resurfaces After Endorsement
In a now deleted tweet from June 9th, 2010, John Conyers III (who has since deleted his Twitter account), appears to have been making reference to his father’s infidelity.

The Earldom Of Detroit Has Been Saved

Oregon Muse via Ace Of Spades opined:  “So that withered old crone Cokie Roberts now admits that ‘everyone knew’ not to get into an elevator with Democratic Rep John Conyers because of his gropey, gropey hands. She never raised a complaint about it, though. However, she did spend most of the 1990s winking at and excusing Bill Clinton’s horndoggery, while slamming Republicans for being sexist and ‘against women’. Ouch. Just thinking about the immense amount of effort it must have taken her to square all of those circles makes my brain hurt.”

Has a suitable heir been found? Conyers’ great-nephew, Michigan State Senator Ian Conyers, is set to run for his seat. It seems the feudal lords of Detroit still have the rights of prima nocta.

Sanders Asked If Trump Visiting Civil Rights Museum Is ‘Insulting’; She Drops Cold, Hard Truth

THE RACE BAITERS ARE IN A SNIT ABOUT THE PRESIDENT GOING TO A CIVIL RIGHTS MUSEUM.  THE TRUTH IS HE’S DONE MORE TO LIFT BLACKS OUT OF POVERTY THAN ALL THEIR BLOVIATING AND PHONY OUTRAGE.

Sarah Sanders announced during the White House press briefing Tuesday that President Trump would visit Mississippi this weekend. On his trip, Trump will participate in the grand opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.
Sanders was asked later in the briefing if Trump’s visit to the civil rights museum was a good idea. American Urban Radio reporter April Ryan asked about various members of the NAACP and black ministers who are protesting the visit.
“There are comments from people from the NAACP from black ministers who are planning on protesting and boycotting this weekend for the president’s visit to the Civil Rights Museum. What say you?” Ryan asked.

WHY DOES THAT RACIST PIG STILL HAVE HER CREDENTIAL?

WAAHHHH!!  THE PRESIDENT WON’T LET US SCREW HIM OVER ON A DAILY BASIS!

The White House press briefing, always a spin zone, is now approaching uselessness
“The briefing is just unrecognizable from the days when it was a very useful tool,” said Ann Compton, a former ABC News correspondent who covered seven presidents over a 40-year span from Gerald Ford to Barack Obama.
Concern over the demise of the briefing began before Trump was elected, part of a general concern about administrations trying to bypass the news media. President Obama, for example, drew criticism when he hired an official videographer who reporters feared might substitute for news cameras.

Thursday Mashup

Just a smorgasbord of things today.

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

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

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

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

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

Case shows judges matter

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

Members Of Congress And Media “Stunned” That Trump Is Still Standing & Fighting Back
He wasn’t supposed to win. But he did.
He wasn’t supposed to have survived the onslaught of media backlash since taking office. But he has.
Today members of Congress and the media are said to be amazed by Donald Trump’s resiliency and ability to continue fighting back against the ongoing effort to diminish and/or destroy his presidency.

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

Rep. James Clyburn Compares John Conyers’ Accusers to Notorious Murderer, Implies He is Victim of White Women
THE RACE CARD… DON’T COMMIT FELONIES WITHOUT IT
Also at this morning’s House Democratic caucus: James Clyburn compared Conyers’ accusers to the child murderer Susan Smith, who initially claimed a black man had abducted her kids. Clyburn said, these are all white women who’ve made these charges against Conyers.

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

Conyers will not seek re-election in 2018
AFTER 56 YEARS THIS PIG WOULD NOT GIVE UP HIS SEAT UNLESS HE MADE SOME KIND OF DEAL.
DESPITE ALL THIS, HIS VOTERS WOULD READILY VOTE FOR HIM AGAIN. MORALS AND SCRUPLES ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY IN DETROIT.
The longest serving member of Congress plans to formally announce in January that he won’t be on the ballot in 2018, sources close to the situation told WDIV in Detroit.

How Hateful Are the Democrats? This Hateful

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

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

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

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

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

Just Havin’ Fun

The president gets a perverse joy out of tweaking the democrats and the enslaved press. He plays them like a virtuoso.

It was on display again yesterday at a ceremony to honor the Navajo Code Talkers who played a huge part in winning the war in the Pacific. The code spoken in their native tongue is the only one the Japanese never cracked.

President Trump just couldn’t resist poking fun at Dizzy Lizzy Warren. Talk about a target rich environment.

Trump Knocks ‘Pocahontas’ at Event Honoring Native American Veterans

“You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump said to the three Navajo veterans who helped the U.S. Marine Corps develop a secret code during World War II. “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.”

Warren slammed the president over the “racial slur” moments after he made it.

“It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the United States can’t even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without throwing out a racial slur,” the Massachusetts senator said during an appearance on MSNBC shortly afterward.

[CtH: Bless your heart, honey, but that wasn’t a racial slur.  It was a well deserved kick in the butt to FAKES like you who try to steal honor.  My guess is that actual Native Americans find you and others like you truly offensive and laughed at Trump’s joke.]

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump’s remark, saying it was not a racial slur.

“I think what most people find offensive is Sen. Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career,” she told reporters.

AND IN OTHER NEWS:

Keith Olbermann: ‘I am retiring from political commentary’

OLBERPUKE WAS WORKING FOR GQ FOR FREE.  MAYBE HE WAS ANGRY BECAUSE THEY NAMED COLON COPPERDICK THEIR MAN OF THE YEAR OR MAYBE HE’S MAD BECAUSE NO ONE HAS ACCUSED HIM OF SEXUAL IMPROPRIETY.

GQ special correspondent Keith Olbermann announced Monday that he is “retiring from political commentary in all media venues” during his online program “The Resistance.”

The former ESPN, MSNBC, Current TV and Fox Sports host said he was “confident” President Trump’s presidency would end soon, thereby making it the “correct moment” to exit from making further political commentary.

[CtH: Oh dang!  I thought he meant he was going to actually GO AWAY, not just focus on his own show.  Pblt.]

Gutierrez to Announce He Won’t Seek Re-Election
EITHER HE’S ABOUT TO BE ACCUSED OF SLIPPING THE OLD JALAPENO INTO SOMEBODY’S TACO OR HE GOT A REAL GOOD DEAL ON A BURRITO STAND.

NBC 5 has learned Congressman Luis Gutierrez will announce Tuesday he is not running for re-election after 24 years on Capitol Hill, sources say. Gutierrez telephoned key Democratic leaders late this afternoon to let them know of his plans. Calls to Gutierrez Monday evening have not been returned.

Already printing petitions Monday night– to begin the process of getting signatures before next Monday’s deadline — is Cook County Commissioner Jesus Chuy Garcia. Ald. Carlos Ramirez Rosa is considering a congressional race. This will also leave an opening on the county board should Garcia opt for Gutierrez’s seat.

Those interested in running for Gutierrez’s seat besides Garcia and Ramirez Rosa include Ald. Joe Moreno and Ald. George Cardenas.

[CtH: Can someone explain to me why the news has to do a story about how he’s going to do this, then another one when he actually does it?]

Congressman Slept With And Then Sued Allegedly Drug-Addicted Staffer
CONGRESSMAN GEICO CAVEMAN

Texas Democratic Rep. Al Green had sex with a staffer who he said was a drug addict and then sued her when she threatened to go public with claims she suffered a hostile work environment, saying he “will not be extorted or blackmailed.”

[CtH: Yeah, that makes total sense.  He had a staffer he believed was a drug addict AND he sexually abused her?  Lemme think about that one for a minute.]

Conyers scandal shows what Dems really think about harassment
WITH ALL THE TAX MONEY HE’S STOLEN YOU’D THINK HE COULD AFFORD A BETTER JACKET.

There are sexual harassers, and then there is John Conyers, the Democrat from Detroit who made his congressional office an adjunct of his libido.

The evidence suggests Conyers believed that as a 27-term congressman, he was entitled to the Washingon, DC, equivalent of the Ottoman Imperial Harem.

He routinely hit on his female staffers and his office was a den of sexual intrigue — allegedly featuring a jealous wife and a vindictive mistress — that properly belongs in a Bravo reality show if the network ever extends its “Real Housewives” franchise to Capitol Hill.

Dating Tips For Prominent Democrats
HMMM…HE MUST ONLY HAVE ONE JACKET

[CtH: Or the same jacket in different shades, kinda like the Rhinestone Cowpie’s vast array of gaudy “cowgirl” hats?]

Being a Democrat leader has always been a traditional path to making special new friends for guys who can’t cut it on looks and personality. Face it – no one ever said, “You know who’s hot? Al Franken. I bet he can bench his body weight.”

You have a right to extracurricular activities; why, liberal women will tell you themselves that the mere fact that you are quite willing to kill babies by the millions entitles you to all sorts of fringe benefits!

Now, there may to be some ungrateful ladies who make some allegations about you for whatever reason, most likely their participation in the vast right wing conspiracy. This puts you in a tough place because you have to balance the liberal principle of believing the victim with the liberal principle of liberals not being held accountable for the terrible things they do.

Who Knew?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Watch how Charlie Rose covered sexual harassment

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

Sex abuse allegations expose the media’s hypocrisy on Trump

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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