Begin Production

Back in the day, when I was a working stiff, one of the accounts I serviced had an R&D department. On one of the engineers’ desks was a sign that read: “There comes a time in the history of every project when it becomes necessary to shoot the engineers and begin production.”

There is at least a score of links I have bookmarked, so the time has come to begin production. There is no particular rhyme or reason for anything you find here, but you should be used to that by now.

Are there any adults left in the Democratic Party?
Since Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, Democrats’ behavior has been sad to watch.
It’s fairly easy to laugh at this childishness, even from the famously petty president of the United States. But the left’s road trip to Crazytown took a darker turn when accusations that Russia hacked the election results to make Trump president were made by formerly “respectable” voices and given oxygen by the media and Democrats.

VA manager bans Christmas tree from office cubicle
va
TRUMP NEEDS TO GET RID OF THIS NEST OF VIPERS AT THE TOP OF THE VA AND APPOINT SOMEBODY WHO CARES ABOUT OUR VETERANS.
THE VERY FIRST THING HE SHOULD DO IS ISSUE AN EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT VETS CAN GO TO ANY HOSPITAL THEY CHOOSE FOR TREATMENT. ONE CASE OF A VET COMMITTING SUICIDE BECAUSE HE CAN’T GET MEDICAL HELP IS TOO MANY. AND I’VE SEEN MORE THAN ONE.
“There is a Christmas tree, ornaments, and decorations in the cubicle across from Luis Stevenson’s desk (the same cubicle where the scanner is housed),” wrote VA supervisor Rebecca Cellucci. “If this belongs to you, please claim it. Otherwise, it will be discarded on Friday.”
“Either management has a policy against any mention of Christmas or religion, or they are absolutely tone deaf, to talk about executing a Christmas tree a couple of weeks before Christmas,” the employee said.

Gingrich: Trump has no obligation to hold news conferences
TRUMP HAS THE AUTHORITY TO PULL THE CREDENTIALS OF VERMIN LIKE CNN, MSNBC, NYT, WaPO, AND ALL THE OTHER WHORES WHO WILL ATTACK HIM AT EVERY TURN. REPLACE THEM WITH NEW MEDIA, LIKE BREITBART.
“The news media so totally disgraced itself in this election, if I were Trump I would just say no,” Gingrich, a Trump adviser, said during an interview with USA Today’s Capital Download.
“And if the White House Correspondents’ Association doesn’t like it, I’d say, ‘Fine, disband.'”

Rosie O’Donnell Goes Public With 3-Year-Old Daughter’s Autism Diagnosis Amid Latest Trump Drama

It’s no secret that Rosie O’Donnell hates Donald Trump, but she insists that she wasn’t trolling the president-elect when she shared a YouTube video speculating that his 10-year-old son has autism. She has since gone public with her own daughter’s recent diagnosis with the developmental disorder and said that she reposted the clip because she found it “educational and informational.”

Sen. Chris Coons Regrets Making Appointments Simpler to Confirm

“I do regret that. Frankly I think many of us will regret that in this congress because it would have been a terrific speed bump, potential emergency break, to have in our system to slow down the confirmation of extreme nominees,” Coons said.
Coons continued saying that blocking President-Elect Trump’s appointments now came down to the will of the American people, arguing that the general public will find his nominees too extreme and sound the alarm with their senators.

The American people didn’t give Democrats majority support so we can come back to Washington and play dead. They didn’t send us here to whimper, whine, or grovel.

Black Congressmen Refuse To Condemn Ellison’s Past Proposal For A ‘Black State’
Under the name Keith E. Hakim, Ellison wrote: “Finally, blacks would have the option of choosing their own land base or remaining in the United States. Since black people toiled most diligently in the southeastern section of the United States, this land, quite naturally, would be most suitable. That means Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi. Blacks, of course, would not be compelled to move to the black state, and, of course, peaceful whites would not be compelled to move away.”

California regulates cow farts
CALIFORNIA DEMOCRATS ARE PERSECUTING HOLSTEINS FOR NORMAL BODILY FUNCTIONS
Despite strong opposition from farmers, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation in September that for the first time regulates heat-trapping gases from livestock operations and landfills.
Dairy farmers say the new regulations will drive up costs when they’re already struggling with five years of drought, low milk prices and rising labor costs. They’re also concerned about a newly signed law that will boost overtime pay for farmworkers.
But the biggest target is dairy manure, which accounts for about a quarter of the state’s methane emissions.
State regulators want more farmers to reduce emissions with methane digesters, which capture methane from manure in large storage tanks and convert the gas into electricity.
New Hope Dairy, which has 1,500 cows in Sacramento County, installed a $4 million methane digester in 2013, thanks to state grants and a partnership with California Biogas LLC, which operates the system to generate renewable power for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District.

Picks to Click

There is much speculation that president-elect Trump may announce more appointments today, perhaps even the one garnering the most speculation, Secretary of State. A number of names have been bandied about. Names like Dana Rohrbacher, Rudy Giuliani, John Bolton, and the one his base most despises and mistrusts, Willard Mitt Romney. Is he ignoring the voices he’s obviously heard, disapproving most stridently of Mitt, while others think this is nothing more than a head fake to keep people guessing? The bottom line is he’s in charge and will appoint the one he thinks will best represent him to the world. The one certain thing is that whomever he picks the decision will be his and his alone. Unlike past presidents, he doesn’t need everything poll-tested before he decides on a position.

Here’s a List of Who Trump Will Be Meeting With Today
Cabinet positions are still open for State, Interior, Commerce, Labor, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services, Veterans Affairs, EPA, Agriculture, Treasury, trade representative, administrator of the Small Business Administration, chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, and Office of Management and Budget director.

Trump is rumored to name other cabinet position nominations Tuesday
Could name Ben Carson secretary of Housing and Urban Development and General James Mattis as defense secretary
PRICE IS A GREAT PICK

Congressman Warns DHS Against ‘Burrowing’ Obama Appointees

With 57 days until the President-elect takes the oath of office, concerns exist that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) non-career positions might be “converted” to career positions,” the letter reads. “Known as ‘burrowing,’ this practice can damage trust with a new Administration and undermine its new priorities. In April 2016, the Chair of my Oversight and Management Efficiency Subcommittee requested quarterly updates from the Under Secretary for Management on such conversions.
McCaul’s suspicions are well-founded, considering he has historical proof. Since 2009, the agency has converted several non-career positions into career ones, including the Assistant Administrator at the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Trump, Romney Talks Baffle All: ‘Nobody Has Any Idea’

MEDIA FAIL: It’s all about PARTY

Remember all those times we were accused of being dirty racists for wanting to know about Obama’s past?  Remember how the media never ever let Dan Quayle off the hook for that time he misspelled “potato”?

CARSON first black prez college

Obama was touted as the “smartest kid in the class”, “smartest man in any room”, and “smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency”, but there is absolutely no evidence that any of that is remotely true.

He has never allowed his academic transcripts and various test scores to be made public. But if reporters dig hard enough, they can often get such things leaked. The MSM didn’t bother; they just kept repeating the “smartest” meme and said voters who wanted to see documentation were being racists.

The evidence we have public access to suggests Obama is nothing special in the brains department. Yes, he graduated from Harvard, but so did both George W. Bush and Mitt Romney. Obama earned a law degree; Bush earned a business degree; Romney earned both simultaneously.

Remember when Lefties proffered as proof of Dubya’s alleged stupidity that he pronounced nuclear “nucular”? Remember when they totally ignored it when Barry O said “corpse-man” in the same speech where he got the corpsman’s name wrong?

I have a DVD in which a Ph.D. in Nuclear Science also pronounces the word “nucular” … repeatedly. It’s nothing more than a regional dialect thing. So far as I know, “corpse-man” is just absurdly, offensively wrong, particularly coming from the Commander-in-Chief who should know how to pronounce military ranks, dontchathink?

Obama reads “Corpsman” as “Corpse Man”, Gets the Man’s Name Wrong [:54]

The MSM’s faux outrage over Ben Carson suggesting he was once offered a “full scholarship” to West Point falls flat with anyone who remembers how they ignored the time Obama said that there are 57 states in the U.S., and the time he said that the leader of Canada is a “president”, and those times when he said that the language of Austria is “Austrian” and the language of Afghanistan is Arabic, and that time he said that America is “20 centuries” old, and that time when he said 10,000 people had been killed by a Kansas tornado that actually killed 12, and that time he credited 1965 Selma march for inspiring his birth in 1961.

The stinking media even yawned that time he said it would be “unprecedented” for the Supreme Court to invalidate a law passed by Congress. I mean … really? Shouldn’t a former “professor of constitutional law” know more about … you know … constitutional law?

Yes, Obama was elected president of the Harvard Law Review, but it was at a time when popularity and being black mattered more than scholarship. He had no scholarship to speak of, having published only one short, poorly written article for the HLR.

After graduation, he joined an undistinguished law firm, where he tried no cases. He was also never more than a part time instructor at the University of Chicago Law School. The tenured law professors reportedly hated him because he was “lazy, unqualified.” One said that he “had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building.”

Obama was also lauded for his elocutionary skills. But when he’s off the teleprompter, he often rambles, loses his train of thought, and says “uh uh uh” a lot. His beautifully written first autobiography was demonstrably written mostly by Bill Ayers and his second book is as ineloquent as his off-prompter speechifying.

Democrats can say and do just about anything

Or so it would seem. In 1971, Bernie Sanders launched his first bid for Senate. In 1972, he published this essay about how, at heart, men and women really hate each other. Read the first few lines.

1972_02 Bernie Sanders creepy essay

Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) styles himself a 2016 presidential contender. If a Republican candidate had ever written an essay like the one Sanders wrote, it would be leading every news show, every talk show, and every social media Top Hits. But he’s a Democrat, so the Left is giving him a pass.

In 2008, Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin mentioned that you can see Russia from Alaska (which is true). Palin look-alike Tina Fey of SNL spun it into the comedy gold line, “I can see Russia from my house.” The Left put Fey’s words into Palin’s mouth so often that multitudes of voters thought Palin was a moron.

In 2012, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney talked about how much care he had put into hiring females for his Massachusetts gubernatorial administration. He instructed his staff to headhunt qualified women and was proud of the fact that they had given him multiple binders filled with women’s resumes to consider. The Left turned the phrase “binders full of women” into a symptom of the GOP’s alleged war on women.

But Bernie’s creepy sex essay?

“What difference at this point does it make?!”

Harry Reid: “Disgusting” and “abhorrent”

Also a liar and a thief and a whole lot of other unsavory things that will no doubt earn him a toasty spot in Hell.  The fact that Harry Reid isn’t in jail is just one more point in favor of my theory about the power of George Soros and his fellow Progressive PTBs who put these Obamacrooks in office to ensure the destruction of the United States and the rise of the One World Government.  May they all rot in Hell with Harry.

2015_04 21 Dana Perino calls Reid poisonous

April 21, 2015 – Dana Perino: Harry Reid is an “absolutely poisonous figure in Washington DC”

Good Riddance! The 7 Worst Harry Reid Blunders by Krystal Heath and Steven Crowder with annotations by CtH – March 28, 2015

We’ve sorted through the laundry list of Harry Reid scandals and narrowed it down to 7 best worst moments you may have forgotten…

1.  Reid’s Bridge to Nowhere – was really a bridge to somewhere.  That somewhere being his own, undeveloped desert land.  Self-serving much?

The huge 2005 federal transportation bill included an $18 Million earmark for construction of a bridge that would significantly increase the value of 160 acres of land personally owned by Senator Harry Reid.  Reid said his support for the earmark funds had absolutely nothing to do with the property he owns.  Pull the other one, Harry.  http://www.latimes.com/world/la-na-earmarks13nov13-story.html#page=1

2.  Tens of millions to his son Rory – via highly questionable political gerrymandering.  Having DHS rush visa applications on a $115 million deal was one instance.  Then there was that Chinese solar plant in the desert issue.  Yikes.

Reid pressured a compliant DHS official to override normal departmental procedures and rush through foreign visa applications for big money Las Vegas investors who had hired his son. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/03/26/harry-reid-pressured-dhs-to-expedite-115-million-foreign-investors-eb-5-visa-deal-critical-to-sons-casino-client/

Rory Reid also worked for a Chinese solar energy firm that was able to purchase for only $4.5 Million public lands appraised at $38.6 Million.  Senator Reid used a 2011 trip to China to influence the Chinese company.  http://www.thenewamerican.com/tech/energy/item/12730-harry-reid-bolsters-son%E2%80%99s-interests-in-chinese-solar-plant-deal

3.  The $600,000 bribe – apparently the price to make a federal investigation quietly disappear.  Did Harry Reid accept it?  Was it all a farce?  Read all about it.

A Utah businessman says the Utah AG and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid asked for $600,000 to make a federal investigation into his company quietly disappear.  http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/01/12/indicted-businessman-names-harry-reid-as-alleged-recipient-of-massive-bribe/

4.  The lies – about being pro-life, about Mitt Romney, about … his own words.  NARAL Pro-Choice America gave Harry Reid a 100% rating.  Mitt Romney, contrary to what Senator Reid told us, did in fact pay his taxes.  And if you lost your health plan due to Obamacare, Harry Reid called you a liar.   Then two days later, he said he never actually called you a liar.

Reid has claimed to be a devout Mormon who adheres to his religion’s defense for life.  But NARAL Pro-Choice America regularly gives him a 100% “We Love Harry” rating while the National Right to Life Committee gives him a 0% rating.  http://votesmart.org/candidate/evaluations/53320/harry-reid#.VTk5hPB3D1n

In August 2012, Harry Reid announced on the floor of the U.S. Senate, “The word’s out that he [Romney] hasn’t paid any taxes for 10 years.”  Reid refused to provide any evidence, probably because there isn’t any.  In 2011 alone, Romney paid $1.9 million in taxes.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2015/03/31/harry-reids-appalling-defense-of-his-attack-on-mitt-romneys-tax-record/

Reid refused to apologize for slandering Romney. “He didn’t win, did he?”

On February 26, 2014, C-SPAN recorded Reid saying from the Senate floor:  “We heard about the evils of Obamacare, about the lives it’s ruining in Republicans’ stump speeches and in ads paid for by oil magnates, the Koch brothers. But in those tales, turned out to be just that: tales, stories made up from whole cloth, lies distorted by the Republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements. There’s plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.”  On March 26, 2014, again from the Senate floor, he said he never said any such thing. http://www.mrctv.org/videos/harry-reid-obamacare-horror-stories-not-true

Reid: “Republicans lie about Obamacare” then “I never said Republicans lie about Obamacare”

5.  Tourists are smelly – no, really.  He called DC tourists “smelly.”

Harry doesn’t like smelly tourists.

6.  “Evil mongers.”  That’s what Senator Reid calls individuals who exercise their First Amendment rights.  Because we all know that free speech is evil, right?  Right?!

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid characterized people who are disrupting town halls with “lies, innuendo and rumor” as “evil-mongers.”  The next day, he sniggered about it, saying the term was original with him.  http://www.politicsdaily.com/2009/08/13/nineteen-minutes-in-a-car-with-harry-reid/

7.  Christmas bonuses from campaign funds.  It’s illegal.  But hey, the law never stopped Harry Reid before.  And besides, you didn’t expect the Scrooge to use his own dough for Christmas gifts, did you?

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid paid cash for a $750,000 condo at the Ritz-Carlton where he lives. But when he gave Christmas bonuses to the doorman and other support staff, he used campaign donations instead of his own money.  Federal law prohibits candidates from using political donations for personal use.  http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/washington/2006-10-17-reid-christmas-bonuses_x.htm

Captain Zero strikes again

On August 31, 2010, President Obama announced the end of combat operations in Iraq, saying this had been his “pledge to the American people as a candidate for this office” and that it was “what we’ve done.” American troops remained in an advisory capacity to assist the Iraqis in assuming security of their own nation.

On October 21, 2011, President Obama announced that all remaining American troops would be shortly leaving Iraq. “As a candidate for President, I pledged to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end. … After taking office, I announced a new strategy that would end our combat mission in Iraq and remove all of our troops by the end of 2011. … Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki and I are in full agreement about how to move forward.”

CNN Presidential debate: Obama, Romney spar over troops in Iraq [1:17]

2012_11 05 Obama promise to end war, ended it

This morning, President Obama was asked if he regretted pulling the remaining U.S. troops from Iraq in 2011.  He said it wasn’t his decision to do so!  BUSH negotiated the SOFA draw down and MALIKI had not wanted any Americans to stay in Iraq!

2014_08 09 Obama blaming Bush Maliki

But on October 21, 2011, the New York Times had reported that American military officials were dismayed by the complete withdrawal of forces from Iraq, saying the Iraqi’s security was still too fragile to endure without an American military presence. They said that the Bush administration had negotiated the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) as a symbolic gesture to help Iraq establish itself as a sovereign nation but that had always been an understanding that a sizable American force would actually stay in Iraq beyond that date.

If Obama had wanted our forces to stay in Iraq, he could’ve made it happen. Now that the country’s gone to hell, he suddenly doesn’t remember that the military warned him this could happen or that he repeatedly boasted about and took full credit for the removal of every last one of our troops from a still fragile Iraq.

What a schmuck.

The 2014 SO muCH fail olympIcs

SOCHI toilet rings

It probably depends who you are why you’d think that’s funny. There are those who refused to go because Russia has such a repressive government. Then there are those who had to go and are shocked and amazed that the Workers Paradise managed to do such a crap awful job getting ready.

Then there’s me who remembers how Mitt Romney took over SLC’s scandal- and debt-ridden Olympics preparation and brought the project in on time and under budget. After the way those JournoLefties treated him in 2012, it is sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet to watch them getting a snoot-full of what Communism actually produces. KWIM?

A Reuter’s photographer found his assigned room was full of construction debris, with yellow-brown water and appliances that didn’t work. The next room they offered him had construction workers still sleeping in it. The third one … a stray dog. But, no worries. They are now rounding up and killing the numerous stray dogs.

2014 SOCHI Water in glasses

  • Tweet: My hotel has no water. If restored, the front desk says, “do not use on your face because it contains something very dangerous.”
  • Tweet: Sochi hotel room – no wifi, tv, heat, working lock on front door or shower curtain. BUT, I’ve been told I have one of the nicer rooms?

2014_02 01 SOCHI Man holes open

Three of the nine hotels were not completed on time and an estimated 97% of all the rooms are missing not just high tech amenities like wifi and TVs, but also necessities like HEAT.  Never mind the lamps, chairs, curtains and pillows that didn’t arrive.

The lack of shower curtains may not be such a biggie, seeing as there may be no water and if there is water, it may be dangerous or cold or both. You also aren’t supposed to flush toilet paper (if there is any) down the toilets. They provide little bins for it. I know this is not unusual in some places in the world. But this is the OLYMPICS.

One hotel worker who moved to Sochi two years ago to get the place ready told reporters it was largely the corruption and bureaucracy that delayed construction though the weather hadn’t helped. But folks … it’s the WINTER Olympics. Weather is part of what you plan for.

2014 SOCHI Ring doesn't open

  • Tweet: I guess one of the journalists stole that last ring to use for a lightbulb.
  • Tweet: Tomorrow there will be a Russian family with a missing engineer relative

2014 SOCHI Terrifying sickle in opening ceremony

  • Tweet: This is in no way terrifying.
  • Tweet: No hotels/infrastructure, but Russians did have time to complete a gigantic hammer & sickle for opening ceremonies.
  • Tweet: In their tour through the history of Russia, the organizers appear to have left out some parts, like the Stalin era.

2014 SOCHI giant Hammer

  • Tweet: Cheer for the hammer and sickle, then step over the dead dogs to get back to your hotel room where you can’t lock the door, can’t use what they’re calling ‘water’, can’t find a pillow, can’t get phone service ….

Do you suppose any of the JournoLefties who dumped on Mitt in 2012 are having any eye-opening, brain-busting “Ah Ha!” moments about the Communist Sochi Olympic FAIL vs. Romney’s Capitalist Salt Lake City Olympics SUCCESS? Hmmmmmmmm … I guess this would require JournoLefties to have brains, so maybe not.
