Lindsey Graham to Dems: ‘If you want to pick judges … win an election’
Graham laid into Democrats for holding Republicans to a different standard than they hold members of their own party. Continue reading
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.]

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.
The original plan for today was to concentrate on the looming threat posed by that fat little brat in NoKo who would be simply pathetic if it were not for the fact he is so dangerous. I still plan to do it, but first things first.
When AG Sessions announced that Obama’s executive order illegally creating DACA was going to be undone by Trump, the reaction was predictable, as it always is when the left doesn’t get their way 100% of the time. It would be a monumental waste of time to post even a smidgen of the wailing from media whores, bloated political layabouts, and glitterati who think their opinion is so much more important than yours, and you need to pay attention because they’re really, really smart.
It is obvious that the alternative to President Trump that we were faced with would be far, far worse, but damn, he is frustrating the hell out of us. He would sign ANY legislation Congress sent him, just to say he did it. The lazy bastards in the GOP are in no hurry to do anything they could be called on and their friends the democrats aren’t about to help.
Trump Explicitly Calls For Amnesty, Says He Might ‘Revisit’ DACA Decision
HE SAID, ESSENTIALLY, SIT ON YOUR ASSES FOR 6 MONTHS AND I’LL REINSTATE DACA. A REAL NO-BRAINER FOR THE DO-NOTHINGS.
“Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do),” Trump tweeted. “If they can’t, I will revisit this issue!”
“Congress now has the opportunity to advance responsible immigration reform that puts American jobs and American security first,” Trump said in a statement following Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement about the rescinding of DACA. Trump’s call for a legislative amnesty is a departure from his campaign rhetoric in which he said there would be “no amnesty.”
Trump to Congress: Legalize DACA (or I Will Revisit)
But by late Tuesday, Trump appeared to have turned into a paper tiger on the key campaign promise to get rid of DACA, saying he would “revisit this issue” if Congress did not “legalize DACA.”
It is unlikely that Trump’s “America First” base, which supported Trump in part because of his focus on illegal immigration, will be satisfied with anything approaching a repeat of DACA — either by Congress or presidential pen.
Perhaps sensing a possible cave, conservative commentator Ann Coulter tweeted before the announcement that millions of voters “not only won’t vote for [Trump] again, but will never vote Republican again if they pass this DACA amnesty.”
Graham, Durbin To DREAMers: ‘Don’t Give Up Hope, You Have Done Nothing Wrong’
GRAHAM IS ONE OF THE DEMOCRATS’ MOST RELIABLE TURD POLISHERS
Durbin added that the time for action is now, and that the DREAMers should not lose hope. Graham added that the DREAMers have done nothing wrong. The full press conference is featured below:
Dems Already Fundraising Over DACA Repeal
WE HAVE COME TO EXPECT NO LESS FROM THESE CARRION CROWS
“Donald Trump’s heartless decision to rescind DACA will force these young people into the shadows. It is a moral disgrace,” Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said in an email to supporters. “Today, show Donald Trump we will not let his cruelty stand. Chip in $3 or more right now.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders: ‘Heartless’ for Pelosi and Dems to Fundraise Off DACA Decision
There Is No Such Thing As a ‘Deserving DREAMer’
I, I, I. Me, me, me. My bills. My ego. My education. My job. My anxiety. Since when did DACA become the Depression and Anxiety Cure for Amnesty-seekers?
It’s this insatiable appetite for collective entitlement that demonstrates the perils of blanket amnesty. Give a privileged political class an inch and they’ll take, take, take until feckless public servants give away their country.

Sessions: DACA an ‘Unconstitutional Exercise of Authority’ by Executive Branch
Trump on DACA Decision: ‘Long-Term It’s Going to Be the Right Solution’
Feinstein Admits DACA on Shaky Legal Ground
I have a real bad feeling about this. There dwells within my breast a real skepticism any time democrats agree with ANYTHING the president does. They convinced George H.W. Bush that David Souter was a constitutionalist judge and he was confirmed handily. SURPRISE! He turned out to be just another liberal hack. As Ann Coulter once said: ‘Why is it NO judge appointed by a democrat has ever disappointed them?’ Because they have a huge roster of leftist judges perfectly willing to replace the rule of law with their own personal opinion.
President Trump has chosen Christopher Wray to be the next FBI Director.
Trump FBI Pick Poised For Confirmation
Christopher Wray impresses even Democratic senators
Christopher Wray, President Trump’s nominee to replace James Comey as FBI director, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee at his confirmation hearing on Wednesday. He performed so well that key Democratic members of the committee such as Senator Dianne Feinstein said they were impressed and were inclined to vote for his confirmation. Senator Al Franken, a chronic skeptic of anything coming from the Trump administration, said to the nominee, “I think you had a good hearing today, and I wish you luck.”
NEIL GORSUCH WAS EMINENTLY QUALIFIED FOR SCOTUS. THE REPUBLICANS HAD TO USE THE NUCLEAR OPTION BECAUSE NOT A SINGLE DEMOCRAT APPROVED OF HIS NOMINATION.
Trump’s OWN FBI Director nominee contradicts him on Russian probe
There was an interesting exchange between Trump’s FBI Director nominee Wray this morning as he was being questioned by Lindsey Graham.

“I think in this man, we have somebody who understand the process of justice, who is committed to an appropriate and positive process, is committed to the law, the constitution, and the people,” Feinstein gushed.

3 Republican Senators reject repeal of Obama’s draconian methane emission rules
CAN YOU GUESS WITHOUT LOOKING? I BET YOU CAN.
President Trump has scored significant successes undoing the toxic eco-activist legacy of his predecessor, including the executive orders moving the signing of Keystone and Dakota Access Pipelines forward.
However, it seems that he cannot rely on certain establishment Republicans to continue his efforts. Before reading this piece further, pause for a moment and ask yourself which 3 GOP Senators would, when given a chance to vote to repeal Obama’s drilling rules, would just say “NO”.
If you guessed John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Susan Collins, you would be correct.
Wisconsin Democrats still blaming voter ID laws for Clinton’s loss
The subject of “Why did Hillary lose” has become the 21st century replacement for Why Can’t Johnny Read, and there will likely be even more books written about it before this issue ever settles into the dustbin of history. Everyone seems to have their own convenient version of the story, but at least some liberals in Wisconsin have settled on a favorite old stalking horse… voter ID laws.
Wisconsin voter ID law proved insurmountable for many votersBut it is not hard to find the dying woman whose license had expired or the recent graduate whose student ID was deficient — or Harris, who at 66 made her way to her polling place despite chronic lung disease and a torn ligament in her knee.
She had lost her driver’s license just before Election Day. Aware of the new law, she brought her Social Security and Medicare cards as well as a county-issued bus pass that displayed her photo. Not good enough. She was turned away.
Betsy DeVos Booed While Giving Commencement Address at Historically Black University
Half the graduating class turned their backs on DeVos, requiring the university president to intervene. Many students and alumni had objected to having DeVos as speaker in part because they said the outreach by President Trump and the education secretary to historically black schools is an empty gesture. But the president of the university defended her work as a philanthropist and her commitment to education.
THE COLLEGE PRESIDENT HAD TO THREATEN THE RACIST SNOWFLAKES TO HAVE THEIR DIPLOMAS MAILED TO THEM
NBC’s Lester Holt Interrupts Trump 9 Times in 3 Minutes – Gave Obama a Cake Walk Interview in January
But back in January of this year Lester Holt gave President Obama a cake walk interview. Holt was nothing but agreeable with the former president who left office with the worst economic and foreign policy record in US history.
NBCNews.com on Thursday posted a two minute and 34 second preview clip of anchor Lester Holt’s exclusive sit-down with President Donald Trump. The clip features Holt conducting an interrogation-like interview in which the NBC personality interrupted Trump nine times and spoke over the president on many of those occasions.
Enraged Californians rebel against Gov. Brown’s massive tax hike on cars and gasWHEN YOU CAN’T GET A HANDOUT FROM THE FEDS, GET IT FROM THE HARD-WORKING PEOPLE. CUTTING SPENDING IS COMPLETELY OUT OF THE QUESTION.
In the two weeks since the Democrat signed Senate Bill 1, opponents have launched an initiative drive to repeal the $52.4 billion transportation package as well as a recall campaign to eject a vulnerable Democratic state senator who is seen as the deciding vote for the law.
“The voters are enraged,” said Assemblyman Travis Allen, the Orange County Republican behind the repeal initiative, which is pegged to the November 2018 ballot.
Gas is already expensive in California — the state vies with Hawaii for the nation’s highest per-gallon prices — and SB1 will make it more so by dinging motorists with a 12-cent-per-gallon excise tax hike on gasoline, a 20-cent increase on diesel and higher vehicle registration fees in order to fill potholes, repair roads and bridges, and expand mass transit.
Steve Schmidt: McCain, Graham, Sasse Might Want “Democratic Congress To Protect National Security”
John McCain 2008 campaign staffer & MSNBC “GOP strategist” Steve Schmidt said that Republicans who support President Trump have become “faithless to their oaths” and suggested some members of the GOP like Senators Lindsey Graham, Ben Sasse, Richard Burr, and John McCain might be forced to support the Democrats in 2018 on grounds of “national security.”
NYPD cops forbidden from breaking up noisy parties
A new NYPD directive forbids cops from entering a residence in response to a noise complaint — unless they’re given permission.
The bizarre constraint is the result of costly, successful lawsuits against the city by homeowners who complained that cops barged onto their properties without a warrant, multiple sources told The Post.
“Parties will go into early morning, which will involve more drinking and neighbors getting into fights, resulting in more shootings,” noted another law enforcement source.
“It will be a long, hot summer.”
Democrat Refers to Middle America as ‘Podunk, USA’
HEY, DEMOCRATS… THIS ATTITUDE IS WHAT COST YOU THE ELECTION
Remarks by Rep. Anna Eshoo (D., Calif.) during a closed-door Energy and Commerce Committee meeting with Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai raised eyebrows from those present.
The moment occurred when Eshoo pushed back against Pai when he was discussing expanding broadband access to rural areas.

The “Q” stands for quisling (one of CtH’s favorite words).
This duplicitous turd has, for almost 50 years, lived on his ‘war hero’ status. As a U.S. senator and Washington insider, he’s gotten fat and very, very rich. He has long delighted in criticizing his own party to curry favor with his Democrat buddies, get invited on Sunday talk shows and the most trés, trés cocktail parties on the circuit. Just as sure as night follows day, he and his loyal, if largely effeminate sidekick, the whiny little Lindsey Graham, will defy the president just to get some attention.
19 Republicans criticize Trump’s immigration ban
So far, at least 19 Republicans have announced opposition to or questioned Trump’s executive order banning travelers and refugees from 7 countries from entering the U.S.
HERE’S HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED: THEY OPPOSE HIM UNTIL IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S HAVING AN IMPACT AND THE VOTERS APPROVE. THEY’LL CLIMB BACK ON THE BANDWAGON AND PRETEND THEY SUPPORTED IT ALL ALONG. CHECK THE LIST. IT’S ALL THE USUAL SUSPECTS.
[CtH: Where were they when Obama banned Iraqi refugees?]
Trump signed an executive order barring any non-U.S. citizen traveling from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia or Yemen from entering US for 90 days. Protests broke out, and the ACLU won a legal battle halting deportations on Saturday.
Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham issued a joint statement. In it, they attacked Trump for punishing innocent people and failing to properly vet the policy, saying his ‘haste’ led to widespread confusion.
[CtH: No, their refusal to inform the public of the actual terms of the eo and the fake newsy coverage by the MSM has led to widespread confusion.]
They also pointed out ban could have the opposite effect on homeland security
‘This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country,’ they said.
[CtH: Or, they could be making statements reassuring everyone that America is not banning Muslims, but only trying to shore up our vetting process to protect our citizenry from terrorists. But then, that might interfere with the money George Soros slips into their back pockets. Or maybe it’s the blackmail folders the Democrats have on them that makes them behave like traitors.]
Trump denied accusations of religious discrimination and lashed out on Twitter. The president fell back on his usual tactic against critics and suggested they focus their energies elsewhere ‘instead of always looking to start World War III’.
I’VE HAD THIS STORED FOR AWHILE. THIS WILL TELL YOU WHO ‘WAR HERO’ JOHN McCAIN REALLY IS. YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW THE WHOLE SORDID STORY.
The REAL John McCain – Bully, Traitor, Liar, Adulterer and Warmongering Criminal by Roland C. Eyears [February 28, 2008]
It is now clear that what is left of the Republicon Party, after being fatally poisoned by the Bush administration, intents to commit suicide by nominating Senator John McCain (R-Hanoi) for the presidency. Where do I start?
Had he not been the son and grandson of admirals, there is scant chance he would have been admitted to the U.S. Naval Academy. Given his behavior patterns and academics, had he not been the son and grandson of admirals, there is little doubt he would have been thrown out. Instead, in 1958 he managed to graduate 894 out of 899. Had he not been the son and grandson of admirals, there is no chance he would have been accepted into the prestigious naval flight training program over far better qualified officers. On his way to becoming a North Vietnamese ace, the aviator lost 3 expensive aircraft on routine, non-combat flights. Little was made of all that, because he was, you know, the son and grandson of admirals.
McCain’s 5½-year stay at the Hanoi Hilton (officially Hoa Loa Prison) has ever since been the subject of great controversy. He maintains that he was tortured and otherwise badly mistreated. One of many who disagree is Dennis Johnson, imprisoned at Hanoi and never given treatment for his broken leg. He reports that every time he saw McCain, who was generally kept segregated, the man was clean-shaven, dressed in fresh clothes, and appeared comfortable among North Vietnamese Army officers. He adds that he frequently heard McCain’s collaborative statements broadcast over the prison’s loud speakers.
On October 26, 1967, McCain’s A-4 Skyhawk was shot down over Hanoi. The fractures of 1 leg and both arms were reportedly due to his failure to tuck them in during ejection.
COME ON UP. HERE’S A CHECK.
Teaming again with Teddy Kennedy, at al, the senator from Hanoi sponsored an amnesty bill for illegal aliens. A top aide, Juan Hernandez previously held a cabinet level position with ex-president of Mexico Vincente Fox. This dual citizen is on record as favoring “Mexico First.” McCain supports open borders.
Personalities aside, I’m not certain how much difference it makes. McCain has essentially endorsed Hillary. According to him, “She has integrity,” and “I have no doubt that she would be a good president.” He likes, really likes the woman, and says, “I think she’s a very good person.” Meanwhile, Barack Hussein Obama’s policies differ not one whit from Hillary’s. So that’s a popularity contest.
CHECK REPLY SECTION AND ADDITIONAL POSTS FOR MORE!
In the left’s latest flight of fantasy, they’ve turned their attention from the failed recount gambit to blaming the Russians for hacking the DNC to help Trump win. Anything to de-legitimize his presidency. This time it’s their turn to piss and moan (my mom’s nicknames for me and my sister, BTW) about every move The Donald makes, from his brand of deodorant to how much it costs NYC for security. John Kennedy (no,not THAT one) won the runoff for David Vitter’s seat in Louisiana, so the GOP picks up the final Senate seat. Which is a good thing, since McStain and Grahamnesty are already conspiring with the ‘rats to cause as much trouble as possible for the new commander-in-chief.
What’s really behind the recounts and petitions
The left doesn’t begin with policy critiques of Republican presidential candidates. Instead it accuses them of being temperamentally unfit for the office and illegitimately elected. The anti-Trump playbook is just the anti-Bush playbook with a little dust on the cover and a few more page creases. Bush was a cowboy who stole the election. Trump is erratic and stole the election. The rest is just elaboration.

Bolton questioned why the Russians would leave clues that show the country was trying undermine Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but no evidence as to whether they had hacked her private email server.
“Why did the Russians run their smart intelligence services against Hillary’s sever and run their dumb intelligence severs to leave clues on the RNC and DNC?” he asked.
Schiff: Obama Should Have Reacted Forcefully Prior to Russia Hacking
