Schumer Blinked

No commentary anymore. There’s no point.

Democrats Lose Big Time As Shutdown Ends

They tried to shoehorn a big immigration amnesty into stopgap funding and paid a heavy price.

Democrats got essentially nothing in exchange for voting to re-open the government, which made the Republican triumph even sweeter. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made an unenforceable promise to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to bring an immigration bill to the floor – he said merely that it was his intention to do so – if a compromise cannot be made regarding the illegals before government funding runs out again.

Never play Chicken with the Trump Train
This embarrassing game of Chicken shows that — for the first time in decades — a Republican won the Narrative War.
Republicans never win the Narrative War.
And that’s why Schumer and the Dems were so certain they’d succeed at hanging this shutdown around Donald Trump’s neck.
But they failed miserably.
No. Trump went much further than that. He successfully labeled this shutdown as Democrats choosing illegal aliens over American citizens.
And because of that, losing this game of Chicken isn’t just a minor setback for Chuck Schumer and the Democrats.
They went all-in for non-citizens over Americans. And now, no matter what they do, Trump has succeeded in labeling them the Party of Illegals.

Trump releases statement on Democrats coming to their senses over government shutdown
Trump just released a statement to the press on the government shutdown, praising Democrats for ‘coming to their senses’ to fund the government:
In a campaign email, the message from the Trump campaign is that “Democrats CAVED”:

Democrats caved on the shutdown, and they’re admitting it

🔥Kamala Harris on McConnell: “I don’t believe he made any commitment whatsoever and I think it would be foolhardy to believe he made a commitment.”
Cc: Democratic leadership

And here’s a statement from OFA, the political offshoot of Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns: “Let’s be clear: This stopgap measure is not a solution. It’s merely a band-aid for a self-inflicted wound that remains untreated.” Another liberal group, CREDO Action, offered this:

Fun: MoveOn rips Dems for “bad, outrageous” shutdown deal

“This is a bad, outrageous deal. Trump and Republicans in Congress stood with their anti-immigrant nativist base, and too many Democrats backed down, abandoned Dreamers, and failed to fight for their values.”

We Are Outraged:’ Illegal Alien Activists Turn on Democrats After Amnesty-or-Shutdown Fail
In a protest outside of the U.S Capitol, open borders advocates and illegal alien activists slammed Democrats after they originally shut down the federal government to push amnesty for illegal aliens, but then caved to President Trump and voted to reopen the government without an amnesty attached to the funding bill.
Illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program with the open borders group “United We Dream,” which is funded by globalist billionaire George Soros, said they were entitled to an immediate amnesty before the federal government was reopened.

Fresh Polling: Shutting Down Government Over DACA Was Not Good For Democrats
“Would you favor or oppose Democrats voting to shut the government down if the continuing budget resolution does not include restoring so-called DACA work permits for undocumented immigrants brought here illegally by their parents?”
58% responded with “oppose.”
Polling also showed a majority back White House priorities on ending the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, eliminating chain migration and building a border wall.

Nancy Pelosi to Democrats: Shutdown deal does not ‘diminish our leverage’
“While today’s vote ends the Trump Shutdown, it does not diminish our leverage,” Pelosi said in a “Dear Democratic Colleague” note to her caucus members. “While Members may vote differently on this bill, we are unified in our determination to meet the needs of the American people with our Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future.”

[CtH: BWAHAHAHAHA!  Delusional Nancy opens her gob again.  TRUMP is MEETING every one of those needs already … without any support whatsoever from the Democrats OR the MSM.]

CNN Asks Wasserman Schultz What Was The Point Of The Shutdown — Her Answer Is Stunning
When Schultz was asked point-blank what the point of the government shutdown was her response left Baldwin’s jaw on the floor. “What one thing did [Schumer] get, you know, from Republicans, to justify shutting down the government in the first place?” Baldwin asked.
DWS replied: “The one thing, I would say, that [Schumer] did get is the potential for momentum.”

[CtH; What on Earth does “potential for momentum” mean?]

CNN Host Incredulous When Wasserman Schultz Says Schumer Got ‘Potential for Momentum’ Out of Shutdown Deal

[DWS: “We’re five months down the road and we still don’t have a budget.”  Wow.  And how many YEARS did Democrats REFUSE to pass a budget?!  I’d say “unbelievable” but this is a Democrat.]

The Way It Is

In keeping with my policy, I’m not posting any links to the investigations going on in Congress because there’s really no point. We’ve found what we all knew to be true, that Obama didn’t have a presidential administration, but a criminal enterprise. Using phony information to spy on Trump people, collusion between the White House, FBI, and DOJ to make sure Hillary would never be charged with anything; Lynch announcing she’d abide by whatever decision Comey came to when she was told months earlier what the outcome of the sham investigation would be. Felonies piled on felonies. It’s laughable to think that any investigation will result in any indictments. Even if they were, you’d never get a judge or jury in DC to convict a Democrat. So it’s all bullcrap. Enough said.

DC ‘Made Men’ Like James Clapper Don’t Get Charged For Committing Open Perjury

Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper is about to celebrate one of the most important anniversaries of his life. March 13th will be the fifth anniversary of his commission of open perjury before the Senate Intelligence Committee. More importantly, it also happens to be when the statute of limitations runs out — closing any possibility of prosecution for Clapper

Schumer’s shutdown reveals: Democrats will destroy America just to spite Trump
The Schumer shutdown has revealed the totality of the Democrats’ agenda: animosity and amnesty.

When President Trump set out to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people, Democrats sat on their hands, rather than participating in the legislative process.

We already knew the Washington Democrats hated Trump. Now we know they oppose not just the president, but American government, the American people and even the very concept of American citizenship as well.

They call Americans “deplorables” and illegal immigrants “Dreamers.” That tells you everything you need to know about the Democrats’ upside-down world view.

SAG Awards Host Can’t Resist Taking A Shot At Melania Minutes Into The Show

“There has never been a host for this awards show,” Bell said. “First time. First person. First lady. I honestly never thought I would grow up to be the first lady, but you know what, I kind of like it.”

“I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyberbullying because I have yet to see any progress on that problem quite yet,” Bell joked early in her speech.

Trump Rejects NBC’s Request for Pre-Super Bowl Interview

CAN’T SAY I BLAME HIM. IT WOULD NOT BE SO MUCH AN INTERVIEW AS AN INTERROGATION. NOT AT ALL LIKE THE HUGGING AND CARESSING OBAMA WAS ALWAYS TREATED TO.

The White House has at present, according to a person familiar with the matter, indicated to NBC News that President Donald Trump will not take part in a recent Super Bowl ritual: a pre-game interview between the commander-in-chief and the news unit of the network hosting the game.

If Trump had agreed to the interview, he probably would have been grilled about his opposition to NFL players protesting when the National Anthem is played before games, as well as about his political policies, Variety says.

When MRC analyzed all evening news coverage of the President in 2017, we found that 87.8 percent of Trump’s coverage on the NBC Nightly News was negative, compared to a mere 12.2 percent that was positive.

Sec. Zinke Will Spend The Government Shutdown Ensuring The WWII Memorial, National Parks, Stay Open

No Barrycades this time. Just one more demonstration of how Obama had no problem hurting people for his political agenda.

In the first hours of the government shutdown, Secretary Zinke was making plans for how to keep America’s public parks open. In the early hours of Saturday morning, Zinke met with public affairs and maintenance staff to run through a plan to keep memorials on the National Mall open. He then spoke with garbagemen who will be picking up trash on the Mall one last time before the city of D.C. takes over for them.

Zinke then got into his car and drove to the WWII memorial to greet visitors and hand out maps and helped with directions. “I spent the morning walking around, giving brochures out,” Zinke said. “I got a lot of thanks from both sides of the aisle. We will not weaponize our public lands.”

Trump Campaign Slams Democrats As ‘Complicit’ In Murders By Illegal Aliens In Explosive New Ad

President Trump’s re-election campaign released a new ad on Saturday slamming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats as “complicit” in future murders committed by illegal immigrants.

The ad featured Luis Bracamontes, an illegal immigrant on trial for killing two police officers who told a judge he only wished he “had killed more of the mother******s.”

Dem street fighting meets match in Trump

For years, Democrats have successfully used government shutdowns to slap wimpy Republicans around and paint them as cold, ineffectual cream puffs who don’t care about the regular people who depend on a functioning government.

Remember the political theater of the 2013 government shutdown, when veterans and little kids were barricaded out of the national monuments and Nancy Pelosi was calling the Republicans legislative arsonists?

That’s not going to work with the bad hombre in the White House — he was born to brawl.

Democrats did their best to fill the news cycle with distracting toxicity leading up to the shutdown we’re in, but it didn’t take. People see it for what it is. Disgraceful political opportunism. Democratic senators don’t oppose much of the spending bill at all, and they pretended there was moral urgency with DACA.

[CtH: Among the MOST pathetic examples was CNN warning us that we could be hit by an UNDETECTED asteroid!  Cuz, you know, if it was detected, we’d be able to do something about it.  Oh wait.   No we couldn’t.  It would still hit us.  We’d just know about it a little sooner.]

Weaponizing the Shutdown 

If a government shuts down in the forest and nobody hears it, that’s the sound of liberty dying. The so-called shutdown is, as noted last week, mostly baloney: Eighty-three percent of the supposedly defunded government is carrying on as usual, impervious to whatever restraints the people’s representatives might wish to impose, and the 800,000 soi-disant “non-essential” workers have been assured that, as soon as the government is once again lawfully funded, they will be paid in full for all the days they’ve had at home.

Trump Calls for ‘Nuclear Option’ if Democrats Continue Shutdown

By invoking the “nuclear option,” Senate Republicans would change the rules of the Senate so that it would only take a 51-vote majority to pass a bill and it would no longer be required to get 60 votes to end debate on it.

“The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked,” Trump said in the tweet. “If the stalemate continues, Republicans should to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s”

Making California Mexico Again

“No barriers between California and Mexico” for leftist Democrats.

In this view, Mexicans who violate U.S. immigration law are only entering their own country and not illegal in any sense. They are therefore entitled to education, medical care, drivers’ licenses, welfare, and in-state college tuition. False-documented illegals also vote in federal, state and local elections, the imported electorate of California’s ruling class Democrats. California secretary of state Alex Padilla conveniently refuses to reveal voter information and will not cooperate with federal probes of voter fraud.

[CtH: Funny thing how it doesn’t work the other way.  Americans who enter Mexico illegally go to jail.]

Trump HHS Announces “New Conscience and Religious Freedom Division”
HHS moves from “pro-life antagonist to advocate.”

During his presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump repeatedly spoke of his intent to support life should he be elected. This week he took another huge step in fulfilling this promise with his HHS’s announcement of a new conscience and religious freedom division.

Additionally, the HHS has announced that it will roll back another Obama era policy: HHS will no longer freeze out states that seek to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. Last year, the president signed a bill allowing states to defund Planned Parenthood.

Former Military Lawyers: Chelsea Manning Subject To Prosecution For Running For Office

While Manning’s felony conviction does not appear to automatically disqualify a run for office, his active-duty status presents a much more troubling issue. Such a status, in other words, has enormous implications for engaging in any kind of political activity, especially a Senate run.

That paragraph is punitive and violation of it subjects her to courts-martial for violation of a lawful order or regulation under Article 92,” Brenner-Beck told TheDCNF. “Her activities campaigning for herself and fundraising for herself may also violate other provisions of the DoD Directive, themselves separately punishable under the UCMJ, art. 92.”

On SNL, it dawns on the left that its tantrum over Trump is falling flat

I watched the opening segment last night, which was a mirthless five-minute take attempting to convince us President Trump was dumb. Later on in the program, at the half-hour mark, the second political skit, led by actress and guest host Jessica Chastain was more interesting.

Using the format of a cheesy game show with a panel of three contestants, Chastain asked her contenders in the five-minute segment whether this or that action of President Trump’s “matters anymore.”

The skit moves on to ever more outrageous scenarios, none of which “matter anymore” to highlight that the public doesn’t give a darn about the media’s frenzy at President Trump’s tweets or its slambook-style leaks of his offhand supposed remarks. In the course of the drama, Chastain gets more and more wound up at how Trump gets away with whatever it is the left says he gets away with and near the end of the skit swigs a booze bottle to drown her exasperated sorrows as the contestants try to comfort her.

And the Winner Is…

Trump broke the internet…

Ever the provocateur, the president yesterday released his much-anticipated list of “Fake News Award” winners. They were posted on GOP.com and the site summarily crashed from the surge of traffic. The media’s reaction was, as always, predictable. Rather than keep you in suspense, here’s the list and the ensuing fallout:

2017 Fake News Awards – The full list
1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.

2. ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.

3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.

4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.

5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.

6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.

7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”

8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.

9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.

10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.

11. And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!

Jim Acosta Fires Back At POTUS Trump After CNN Wins FOUR FAKE NEWS AWARDS

Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta was far from pleased after President Trump bestowed CNN with four “Fake News” awards Wednesday evening. Acosta, who was speaking on a panel organized by Freedom of Press, responded to the news, stating “I would say having been called fake news myself, the president is the king of fake news.”

Earlier in the discussion, Acosta defended against criticism for asking the President if he was a racist in relation to his “sh*thole” remarks.

“God damn it, I’ll say it out loud … it is our right to ask if the president is a racist,” Acosta blurted out.

2017: The Year the News Media Went to War Against a President

■ The Trump presidency was the biggest story of the year, accounting for one out of every three minutes of evening news airtime — nearly 100 hours in total.

■ The tone of coverage has been incessantly hostile, especially for a new President in his honeymoon year: 90% negative, vs. just 10% positive (These percentages do not include neutral statements).

■ More than two-fifths of evening news coverage of the President (43%) focused on controversies, not policies, with the Russia investigation alone accounting for one-fifth of all Trump coverage (1,234 minutes).

■ Despite their massive coverage of Russia, the networks had almost no airtime for questions about how the investigation began, or whether special counsel Robert Mueller’s current investigation is biased.

Report: Highest-ever political bias in media, most can’t name ‘objective news source’

Americans see more political bias in news than ever, and nearly seven-in-10 blame media owners for influencing the ways stories are reported, according to the latest failing report card on the nation’s news business.

According to “American Views: Trust, Media and Democracy,” a new report from Gallup and the Knight Foundation, the percentage of Americans who see a great deal of political bias in stories has nearly doubled since 1989.

10 of the Dumbest Questions Reporters Asked During Trump’s Health Press Conference

White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters on Tuesday that President Trump is in “excellent” health and has “no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever.” But that didn’t stop the press corps from asking a lot of really stupid questions. Here’s a sampling.

1. One reporter asked the White House physician how Trump can become as fit as Obama — who struggled to kick a smoking habit. He then proceeded to whine that the press office doesn’t keep a tally of how much time Trump spends on the golf course and asked if Jackson could help them with that.

Leftist Toilet Mouths Condemn Trump as They Corrupt Nation

Let’s be clear: Leftists certainly object to the substance of Trump’s comments, that we shouldn’t continually absorb poor, unskilled, often functionally illiterate and unassimilable people from Third World nations. But they also object to his alleged style, labeling as obscene the use of s***hole (toilet) to describe such places. So to show us how bad such language is, the Crude News Network (CNN), for example, used it at least 36 times on Thursday. It’s sort of like inveighing against animal abuse and then bludgeoning dozens of dogs to death on air to prove your point.

[CtH: This reminds me of something I’ve noticed often in movie and t.v. outtakes. On Christian movie sets, there are no bleeped out (or non-bleeped out) cuss words when people mess up a line. On mainstream movie and t.v. sets, almost everybody seems to punctuate a goof with “f***” or “sh**.”]

Dems Think 800,000 Illegal Immigrants Are Worth Forcing Active Military To Go Without Pay

Congress has three days to strike a deal to keep the government funded through October. If members fail to come to an agreement by Jan. 19, all “non-essential” government employees and active U.S. Military personnel will be working with out pay (including troops currently deployed). Funding for agencies like federal museums or national parks will also be cut off.

Congressional Democrats are apparently content with allowing military and law enforcement personnel to go without pay to secure protections and benefits for illegal immigrants and members of their extended families.

Red-State Democrats Gamble
Importantly, three Democratic officials in states that went heavily for Trump in 2016 — Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill — were all absent. Sens. McCaskill and Manchin said they were not invited to the White House event.

Normally, the lawmakers who represent states that voted for the other party’s presidential nominee are the most bipartisan — even if it’s just to listen. Early on, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Sen. Donnelly hopped on a plane with Trump. But now that they’re in the heat of fundraising, they do not want any part of it.

Democrats Block 2018 Budget, Gain Another Month to Push Amnesty
Late Tuesday, the GOP gave up on 2018 budget talks and drafted a new temporary budget plan, dubbed a Continuing Resolution, which would keep the government open for another month until February 16. That date will mark almost five months after the 2018 budget was slated to begin October 1.

If the CR passes the House and Senate, the GOP and the Democrats will get another month to develop a 2018 budget while Democrats gain another month to wear down GOP and Trump opposition to their amnesty-plus plan.

Don’t fall for Operation Demoralize 2018

The key to Democrat victory in November 2018 is to keep Republican voters home.

WHEN THE DEMOCRATS FLIPPED A REPUBLICAN SEAT IN WISCONSIN LAST WEEK. THE DEMOCRAT TURNOUT WAS 35%… THE REPUBLICAN TURNOUT WAS 12%.

I would not be surprised to see that strategy used more generally against Trump supporting Republicans in the House. And it could be effective. Someone who normally would vote Republican but stays home is as good as a vote for Democrats.

So expect there to be a sustained effort to demoralize Republican voters, Trump supporters, and independents who are willing to vote Republican. That’s part of the reason Democrats and the media have shifted to round-the-clock accusations of racism against Trump.  I have written about this phenomenon in the past. I call it Operation Demoralize.

Trump schools GOP Congress to play hardball

Instead of rolling over for Democrats and virtuously claiming they’ve “reached across the aisle,” as they always have done, Republicans are now playing hardball. They’ve maneuvered to put entitlements and swing state-sensitive tax cuts on the line as bargaining chips to avoid a government shutdown. In doing this, they have just laid out a plan to beat the Democrats at their own game.

Do Democrats really want to face the 18 million parents whose nine million children use the CHIP program to explain that all that could come to an end because of the Democratic Party’s higher priority of amnestying 800,000 DREAMers? Do they really want to face the New England voters in the medical device industry, which has been singled out for punitive Obamacare taxes, or explain themselves to all the union workers set to pay massive Obamacare “Cadillac” taxes just for the “privilege” of having good health care insurance?

Voters don’t actually want Oprah to run for president

“Oprah’s strong standing among Democrats does not translate to a clear interest in her launching a presidential campaign,” said Kyle Dropp, co-founder and chief research officer of Morning Consult. “While 77 percent of Democrats have a favorable opinion of Oprah, only 38 percent say she should run in 2020.”

The “Oprah 2020” rumors were sparked earlier this month following her emotional speech at the Globes, in which she touched upon the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements sweeping the nation recently.

Trump Honors Civil Rights Icon Barbara Jordan ‘Who Called for End to Chain Migration’

“As Chairman of the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform—now called the Jordan Commission in her honor—she stood up to special interests determined to profit politically and financially from our broken immigration system. She remained steadfast in promoting common-sense reforms that would better protect the rights and needs of Americans,” the presidential message stated.

Trump also noted that Jordan “called for an end to chain migration, which has allowed millions upon millions of low-skilled foreign nationals to compete for opportunities and resources against our most vulnerable American citizens—many of whom come from African-American and Hispanic-American communities.”

Grassley under fire for planning vote on 17 judicial nominees

Under Senate rules, nominees have to be approved by the full Senate in order to carry over into a new session of Congress.

But advocates are accusing Grassley of trying to avoid public scrutiny by slipping controversial candidates opposed by Democrats into an already stacked agenda.

Liberals Furious NHL Picked Trump-Supporter Kid Rock to Perform at All-Star Game

But, as Bucholtz revealed, a list of folks on Twitter were incensed that Rock was chosen to perform at the game; because the Detroit-based singer is a well-known supporter of President Donald Trump and a Republican booster. Kid Rock even briefly contemplated running for the U.S. Senate from Michigan.

But, liberal members of the media attacked the NHL on Twitter calling Kid Rock a “racist” and slamming the league for “going political” with the choice:

President Trump to Address March for Life

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced Wednesday afternoon President Trump will speak to the March for Life in Washington D.C. on Friday. He is the first sitting president to do so. He will address the crowd live through a video conference.

“Since his first day in office, President Trump has remained steadfast on his campaign promises to the pro-life cause and has actively worked to protect the unborn…We welcome our 45th President, Donald Trump, to the 45th annual March for Life,” March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said in a statement.

Judge Upholds Alabama Voter ID Law In Win For Common Sense

A federal judge in Alabama has thrown out a lawsuit against the state’s voter ID law, finding that the law doesn’t prevent anyone from voting because “nearly the entire population of registered voters in Alabama already possess a photo ID that can be used for voting.”

For those who don’t, obtaining a qualifying ID can be done “with little to no effort and no cost.”

OUT!!

It seems like every time the president allows access to the media whores, he knows they’re going to make clowns of themselves. And every time, they oblige. They truly can’t help themselves. Jim Acosta, the pathetic Walter Cronkite wannabe, once again showed himself to be the empty soul, trying desperately to be taken seriously. I think he’d have had his credential pulled long ago if not for the fact Trump likes to mess with him and Sarah Sanders is really good at pimp slapping this little turd.

Pres. Trump to CNN’s Jim Acosta: ‘Out’

The veteran reporter along with other members of the press, were allowed inside the Oval Office during a meeting between Pres. Trump and Nursultan Nazarbayev the president of Kazakhstan.

When White House press aides started asking the press to leave, Acosta, whose contentious relationship with the Trump White House has been well-documented, tried to get in a few final questions.

“Did you say you want more people to come into the country from Norway, Mr. President?” Acosta asked.

“Thank you very much, everyone,” Trump responded.

Acosta asked the question again, to which Trump responded in a lower, softer voice, “I want people to come in from everywhere.”

“Just Caucasian or white countries, sir? Or do you want people to come in from other parts of the world…people of color?” Acosta asked.

The president pointed at Acosta and said: “Out.”

They need to look at revoking the White House press credentials of CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Here’s another installment of, ‘hey everybody, Trump’s a racist’ from our friends at FAKE NEWS CNN.

Disgraceful. And Trump doesn’t want any of it from Acosta

Acosta Suggests WH Doctor Could Be Withholding Information About Trump’s Health

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta asked Physician to the President Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson if he was withholding negative information about the president’s health from reporters during Tuesday’s press briefing.

Jackson assured Acosta that there was no information about Trump’s health being withheld, negative or otherwise.

“I can promise there is nothing that I am withholding from you. I can tell you, I’ve done the last four or five of these,” Jackson replied. “I’ve been involved in probably the last six or seven of these and this is hands down more information that has been put forth by any other assessment to date.”

DHS Secretary Asks to Move on After Four Democrats Ask about Sh**hole Comments

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen expressed a desire to “move forward and discuss ways in which we can protect our country,” during her testimony before the Judiciary Committee Tuesday after being asked for the fourth time about vulgar language reportedly used in an immigration meeting last week with President Trump.

“At any point in that conversation on Thursday did the President of the United States use a four-letter word beginning with s in combination with other words or alone that you heard?” Sen. Blumenthal asked.

“Sir, respectfully, I have answered this,” she replied. “I’ve been very patient with this line of questioning. I’m here to tell you about the threats our country faces and the needs and authorities that are needed by the Department of Homeland Security. I have nothing further to say about a meeting that happened over a week ago. I’d like to move forward and discuss ways in which we can protect our country.”

Democrats: Trump must capitulate on DACA “to prove you’re not prejudiced or bigoted”

Trump denied using the term, and is backed up by Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who were at the same meeting and dispute Durbin’s account.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was at that meeting also. She testified today before a Senate committee which included Durbin.

Durbin fell flat on his face when Nielsen testified she did not remember Trump using the “s***hole” word during the meeting, and that Trump did not have a “specific categorization of countries in Africa.”

NJ Senator Cory Booker then went ballistic, berating Nielsen and accusing her of lying, your “silence and amnesia is complicit.”

The questioning of Nielsen, and Booker’s theatrics, are part of a concerted Democrat effort to turn DACA into a racial issue if Democrats don’t get their way.

It’s all a charade that was laid bare by Chuck Schumer today, who demanded Trump get on board Democrat DACA demands or be labeled a racist:

“If you want to begin the long road back to prove you’re not prejudiced or bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise … One that was aimed at meeting the concerns you voiced,” Schumer said, noting it was negotiated by three Republicans and three Democrats. “This may be the last train leaving the station. President Trump needs to get on board.”

HOW IS THIS NOT A THREAT?

This was a line of attack also used by Durbin:

Cory Booker ‘seething with anger’ as he yells at DHS chief Kirstjen Nielsen

“I had tears of rage,” Booker bellowed at Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in reference to when he first heard of Trump’s “shithole countries” remark last week.

“And for you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss the questions of my colleagues, with tens of millions Americans hurting right now because they’re worried about what happened in the White House …”

Journos Unable To Accept Results Of Trump’s Physical Exam

Journalists have long questioned the president’s mental health and fitness for office, but Dr. Jackson debunked any notion that Trump is unhealthy and called his mental health “excellent.”

However, reporters are still unwilling to accept that nothing is wrong with the president and have taken to Twitter to express their displeasure with Dr. Jackson’s assessment of Trump.

CNN’s Brian Stelter, who routinely talks about Trump’s fitness, wrote that Trump passing a cognitive exam has nothing to do with being “unfit.”

“Someone could be sharp as a tack, but still unfit,” Stelter claimed.

AP Reporter Asks Trump Doctor “Do You Have a Life Expectancy Based On Your Results?”

AP reporter Jill Colvin bizarrely asked Dr. Jackson “Do you have a life expectancy based on your results?”

MSNBC’s Mika Wants ‘Small Crowd’ For Trump’s State Of The Union

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said that those who disagree with President Donald Trump should “give him a small crowd” at the upcoming State of the Union address.

“I really feel that Democrats and any Republicans with a spine who actually believe that this president is lying and perhaps acting in a way that is bad for this country should not show up for the State of the Union, and some are speaking about that. Give him a small crowd,” retorted Brezinski.

[CtH: It should be remembered that, during his time in office, President Lincoln was reviled by the Democrats, half the Republicans, and a lot of the media.]

DC Mayor Addresses How High School Grads All Got Diplomas Without Meeting Requirements
 An investigation by WAMU and NPR has found that Ballou High School’s administration graduated dozens of students despite high rates of unexcused absences. We reviewed hundreds of pages of Ballou’s attendance records, class rosters and emails after a district employee shared the private documents. Half of the graduates missed more than three months of school last year, unexcused. One in five students was absent more than present — missing more than 90 days of school.

To add insult to injury, the majority of Ballou’s 2017 graduates missed more than six weeks of school. One teacher recalls seeing kids in the 12th grade that couldn’t read and write.

Local viewers were skeptical and blasted the school system and D.C. leadership in the comment section.

“Dr. Reeves should be prosecuted,” one commenter said.

“Revoke every diploma of every student who failed to meet grad requirements,” another wrote. “Otherwise this is a cruel joke that will have a lasting impact on every DCPS graduate.”

THIS IS PART OF THE PROBLEM

40 Percent Of Kids Now Born To Single Moms—Up 700 Percent Since 1960

A recent report from the Social Capital Project reveals that the American family is disintegrating, fast. Fully 40 percent of mothers are currently unmarried.
This is partly due to the increasing acceptance in out-of-wedlock births. But, as the authors point out, this rise has a few more concrete explanations, such as: increased unwed promiscuity, fewer “shotgun marriages” to pregnant single women, and increasing delayed marriage/rising divorce.

Dems flip Wisconsin state Senate seat
IT SEEMS LIKE THE REPUBLICANS ARE TRYING TO LOSE THE MAJORITY…IT’S TOO HARD.

Democrats have expressed optimism heading into November’s midterm elections in the wake of successful campaigns at the state and local level.

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee touted Schachtner’s win as the 34th district to flip from Republican-held to Democrat-held since President Trump was inaugurated a year ago.

Democrats won governor races in New Jersey and Virginia, a special U.S. Senate election in Alabama and several other state races late last year.

AZ Sen candidate: Your “clean DACA bill” isn’t happening
McSALLY IS A FORMER FIGHTER PILOT RUNNING FOR FLAKE’S SENATE SEAT

Major news outlets are already sounding the alarm about a possible government shutdown, assuming that a “clean” DACA bill is the hill that Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi want to die on this week.

This seems particularly true of Arizona Congresswoman (and newly announced Senate candidate) Martha McSally. She was making the rounds on cable news this week, letting the minority party know that they need to pack the “clean” bill idea away because it’s not gonna happen.

Fox News tweeted the video of that exchange for everyone yesterday.

This wasn’t a particularly new position for McSally, who has been solid on immigration issues from the beginning. She was also out with a similar warning during an interview last week, when it might have actually done some good had the Democrats been listening.

When They’re Out of Power They’re Just Funny

Being a Democrat means you don’t need a conscience or a moral compass. You cater to the ignorant, the lazy, and the morally reprehensible. You blatantly lie to them. Most of them know it and they don’t care. They are motivated by greed,ignorance, and hate. You stand for nothing except enriching yourself at the expense of the the law-abiding people of this country who work and pay the taxes you buy votes with.

When they’re in power, like the dark days of the Obama reign of terror, they specialize in spreading misery to all quarters. Times like these, when they’re relegated to comic relief, they can display a particular pathos born of desperation to be relevant. They will return to the throne one day, but until then they’re just fun to watch.

Frederica Wilson Joins Dems In Boycotting Trump’s State Of The Union Address

“For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement. “I have no doubt that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises, and lies.”

http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/15/another-black-member-of-congress-is-protesting-trumps-state-of-the-union/

The collective IQ at the SOTU just skyrocketed

As for Frederica Wilson, the gobs of attention she got for exploiting the wife of a fallen soldier has faded away – an easily forgotten embarrassing memory.

So naturally she thinks her next ticket to cable news is announcing she too will skip Trump’s SOTU address.

Black unemployment is at an all-time low – falling to below 7% for the first time ever.  And the primary beneficiaries of President Trump stemming the flow of unskilled illegal aliens into the country are black Americans.  Now you would think that Frederica, John and Maxine would be more focused on the constituents in their districts than flooding the country will unskilled, cheap labor.  But for the Democrat Party, all that matters are illegal aliens.

American blacks need to understand that they have been cast aside.  Parasites suck the life out of a host then move on.  And the Democrat parasites in Congress have drained all advantage out of the black vote. Now they’ve moved on to illegals.

Since they have nothing to show for their endless years in Congress, all they have left is showboating and demagoguery.  So they put on petty displays for attention and hurl slanderous attacks at the President — all to mask their years and years of inaction.
So go ahead, stay home, you useless blobs of irrelevance.

Maxine Waters: MLK Would Be Marching to Impeach Trump

Dems ‘Terrified’ of Trump Cracking Black Vote, Civil Rights Leader Says

With infamous race card losing its potency, guests on ‘The Laura Ingraham Show’ say president’s program threatens old alliances.

“[Democrats] are terrified that this president gets somewhere north of 10 to 15 percent of the black vote,” said Niger Innis, spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) (pictured above right, in red tie, in the image on this page). “And they’re terrified because, if that happens, then it is first of all, mathematically, electorally impossible for a Democrat to win.”

Innis added, “But more than that, it is because they are so invested in having a monopoly of the black vote, and that monopoly is based on blacks as forever seeing themselves as victims, forever seeing themselves as victims of racism, of economic depravity of the white man.”

The battle to shut down Obama’s presidential center

What initially started out as a library has morphed into a 20-acre private “center,” and some environmentalists and historians are unhappy with the Obama Foundation’s plans to swoop in and take over a national historic place.

The Obama Foundation originally said it would house a presidential library on the property and vowed to have the National Archives oversee the facility because of its placement on public land. But that’s no longer the case, and some are balking at the change in plans.

Surprise: The States That Hemorrhaged Population Fastest in 2017 Were…

Some of the politicians objecting most loudly to the GOP tax reform law were Democrats from high tax blue states, whose constituents for years have been somewhat insulated from their exorbitant state and local tax bills via an ability to write them off as a federal tax deduction.  Under the new law, those who itemize (a small fraction of taxpayers to begin with) will only be able to deduct up to $10,000 in SALT-related (property tax) expenses. This will expose some of them, especially those in upper-income brackets, to the true costs of living in tax happy jurisdictions. These people make up the lion’s share the roughly five percent of taxpayers who stand to see a net tax increase next year — whereas 80 percent of all taxpayers, and 91 percent of middle class earners will get a cut.

US Military Members Receive Biggest Pay Bump Since 2010

Military members will see their paychecks rise by the largest percent increase since 2010 this week.

At the end of December, President Donald Trump, by way of executive order, mandated a 2.4% pay hike for uniformed service members and a 1.9% raise for federal workers. The Trump administration’s initial budget blueprint called for a 2.1% pay increase, while the House and Senate suggested the 2.4% figure, which was eventually adopted by the president.

Tom Cotton: ‘Let’s See How’ Shutting Down Government Over DACA Amnesty ‘Works Out for’ Democrats

Cotton, however, warned that if Democrats were to shut down the government over amnesty, it could have a detrimental impact on their re-election efforts in states like Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Montana.

Towards the end of 2017, Democrats in the House and Senate made similar threats that they would shut down the federal government over an amnesty for illegal aliens. But the left-wing party quickly backed off the plan when public opinion polls showed Americans were increasingly opposed to a shutdown over a year-end amnesty that would further suppress the wages of American workers.

Trump Administration Plans To Help States Implement Work Requirements for Medicaid

Kentucky has just received approval from the Trump administration to implement their work requirements, which mirror their requirements for food stamps. There are 650,000 Medicaid beneficiaries in Kentucky. Many of these individuals do not have any earned income and do not work at all. Under the new requirements, these beneficiaries will have to either work, train, or volunteer for 20 hours a week in order to receive benefits.

According to research from the Foundation for Government Accountability, the number of Medicaid beneficiaries has more than doubled since 2000. Now 75 million are enrolled in the program, which includes 28 million able-bodied adults. In addition, 52 percent of Medicaid beneficiaries that are able-bodied do not work.

NYT Officially Designates Trump A Racist, And Nobody Cares

The New York Times wants to make it official: President Donald Trump is a racist.  On Friday, the editorial board of America’s most influential paper asserted there was no doubt of that.

The editorial was in response to Trump reportedly asking why America takes in so many immigrants from “shithole” countries instead of places like Norway.  “Where to begin?” the Times’ editorial board collectively sighed when reflecting on Trump’s statement. “How about with a simple observation: The president of the United States is a racist.”

It shouldn’t be doubted that folks like Charles Blow and others in the media genuinely believe Trump is a racist for saying “shithole” countries and criticizing illegal immigrants in colorful language. But they aren’t just saying what they believe to get it off their chest.
The commentators wanting Trump to be certified as a racist understand the power of that charge and how it has played out in politics in the past.

It Happens Every Year

This is MLK’s birthday, a national holiday. It is also the day when the Democrats’ blatant hypocrisy is raised to a new level. They use King’s memory to suck up to the useful idiots who are unaware they’re being sold a complete bill of goods. Every other day of the year they stand four-square against everything he stood for. Were he still alive he’d be treated like Justice Thomas, Senator Tim Scott, and every other black who has left the plantation.
But for this one day they invoke his memory, spout platitudes, and preach about living his “dream,” all while spouting hatred for anyone of the wrong color or ideology.

THESE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE THEIR PRESS CREDENTIAL REVOKED.

30 Seconds After Trump Signs MLK Day, Reporter Shouts, “Are You a Racist?”

President Donald Trump on Friday signed a proclamation to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, saying it is a day to mourn his loss, celebrate his legacy and pledge to fight for his dream of equality, freedom, justice and peace.

Thirty seconds later, WH Correspondent April Ryan shouted, “Are you a racist?”  As President Trump was exiting the signing ceremony, another reporter yelled ‘sh*thole’ at him.

Two sourpuss Dems will childishly skip the State of the Union; surely Trump is devastated by the news

House Democrats Maxine Waters and John Lewis will skip President Trump’s first State of the Union address because they’re furious that he allegedly called some impoverished, crime-riddled African nations “sh*tholes.”

“I don’t trust him, I don’t appreciate him, and I wouldn’t waste my time listening to what he has to say,” Waters fumed to MSNBC. “He does not deserve my attention.”

At this point, it really makes no difference that Waters, 79, and Lewis, 77, continue to flout their duties by skipping presidential addresses and meetings. President Trump is moving along with his agenda despite widespread Democratic obstruction.

I ONLY INCLUDED THIS LINK BECAUSE OF THIS PICTURE.

Both Waters and Lewis will have to answer to their constituents as to why they’re sitting at home, collecting their paychecks from taxpayers, while not doing their jobs. The State of the Union address is set for January 30.

THEIR CONSTITUENTS DON’T GIVE A RAT’S PATOOT. THAY HATE TRUMP AS MUCH AS THESE TWO CLOWNS DO.

CNN Says Socialism Is ‘Cool’ In MLK Day Tweet

CNN declared that MLK was an “environmental hero” and a socialist, “before it was cool,” in a tweet Monday morning.

The tweet was sent from the main CNN account with almost 40 million followers. The adjoining article in the tweet was entitled ‘Three ways MLK speaks to our time’ and features a breakdown of MLK’s relevance in today’s political climate.
The article describes how some historians classify MLK as a socialist, and goes on to make the case that socialism is very hip these days for youths who “are developing a distrust of capitalism.”

[CtH: And by “developing”, they really mean “having it spoon fed to them by leftist teachers.”]

She defended the president against a rash of new “racism” accusations supposedly stemming from vulgar remarks Democratic staffers are claiming Trump made about third-world countries that send the United States massive numbers of immigrants.

[CtH: She’s about as popular with Democrats as Clarence Thomas is and as her uncle would be if he were alive today, preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and proclaiming an end to judging people by their skin color.]

Mitt Romney Uses Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to Attack Donald Trump

Romney wrote: “The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race. The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/ America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

Last summer, Romney criticized President Trump’s response to violence in Charlottesville, accusing him of moral equivalence between neo-Nazis and those opposing “racism and bigotry” — but without noting that the latter had disrupted a lawful, permitted protest.

Democrats accused Romney himself of racism when he ran for president in 2012, particularly when he accused Barack Obama supporters of voting for “free stuff,” and when he joked that “no one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate.”

Jim Acosta: There’s folks out there who’ve said there’s a cause and effect out there. He watches something on FOX and Friends and then he tweets about it. Is that what happened this morning and does that go on?

Sarah Huckabee Sanders: I’m sure you’re disappointed that he’s not watching CNN.

Jim Acosta: I think he’s watching a lot of CNN if you don’t mind me saying.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders: I don’t think that’s true. I think your numbers would be higher.
