John McCain: Media’s Useful Idiot

They like him; they really like him. At least, that’s what he’s convinced himself of in his own delusional mind. Recall when he was defeated by George W. Bush for the Republican nomination in 2000 and had to wait his turn in 2008. At that time he famously stated that the media was his voting base. It never once dawned on him that the only reason they tolerated having him around was to bash his own party, especially for W., which they held in bitter contempt after the Democrats tried unsuccessfully to steal the Florida vote, hence the presidency.

McCain has never met a media ass he wouldn’t kiss or an ally he wouldn’t betray. I did a piece about him on this blog a few months ago. In case you’ve forgotten, he was Russ Feingold’s co-conspirator on the infamous legislation to “get money out of politics.” Even though the problem was politicians who could be swayed by the filthy euchre. Including the self-serving, sanctimonious prick himself:

John McCain and the Keating Five Scandal

Just what is the Keating Five scandal?

Senator John McCain was one of five senators accused of corruption in 1989 in the Savings and Loan (S&L) crisis of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The other four senators were Alan Cranston (D-CA), Dennis DeConcini (D-AZ), John Glenn (D-OH), and Donald W. Riegle (D-MI). The crisis was the failure of 747 S&Ls in the United States costing an estimated $160.1 billion, about $124.6 billion of which was directly paid for by U.S. taxpayers.

These five senators were accused of improperly intervening before the Federal Home Loan Bank Board (FHLBB) in 1987 on behalf of Charles Keating, chairman of the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association, which was a target of a regulatory investigation by the FHLBB. The FHLBB subsequently backed off taking action against Lincoln. By failing to take action, Lincoln was able to operate for two more years until its collapse in 1989, at a cost of $2 billion to the federal government. Some 23,000 Lincoln bondholders were defrauded and many elderly investors lost their life savings.

John McCain Slams Administration as in ‘Disarray’ at Munich Security Conference
WHY THE HELL DOES HE PRESUME TO SPEAK FOR AMERICA?

Sen. John McCain wasted no time at the Munich Security Conference in Germany on Friday as he portrayed the Trump administration as being in a state of “disarray,” in contrast to the message of reassurance from administration officials.

John McCain Becomes Critic in Chief of the Trump Administration
“In many respects, this administration is in disarray, and they’ve got a lot of work to do,” he said.

A day later, in an interview for “Meet the Press,” Mr. McCain challenged Mr. Trump’s contention that the news media is “the enemy of the American people.”

“The first thing that dictators do is shut down the press,” he said, adding that while he was not calling the president a dictator, “we need to learn the lessons of history.”

YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DICTATORS, DICKHEAD; YOU JERKED ONE OFF FOR EIGHT LONG YEARS

John McCain’s “dictator” talk ignores reality and his own past with the media
91adc629db3997b25090d59b89bf51e2d0f804157642502618835622635dbe6bArizona Senator John McCain is a very popular figure with the mainstream media. (I bet that’s a sentence you never thought you’d read.) The latest reason for this newly emerging love affair between the press and the decorated war hero is his response to the speech given by President Trump during his rally in Florida yesterday. Following the brief but raucous event, McCain was ushered out to give the media his own take on the speech, during which he invoked the image of a “dictator” when discussing the president’s critique of political journalism. (CNN)

“I hate the press,” the Arizona Republican sarcastically told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.” “I hate you especially. But the fact is we need you. We need a free press. We must have it. It’s vital.”

McCain: Trump’s Attacks on Press Are ‘How Dictators Get Started’

TAPPER AND McSTAIN WERE BLOWING KISSES AT EACH OTHER

Rand Paul: We’re “Very Lucky” Trump Is in Charge and Not McCain

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) blasted fellow Republican and anti-Trump Senator John McCain (R-AZ) this morning on ABC’s “This Week.”

Paul said that McCain’s recent criticisms of Trump are driven by his “personal dispute” with the president over foreign policy.

He added that McCain and Trump are at odds because McCain supports the wide deployment of U.S. troops to protect and promote American interests abroad while he characterized Trump’s views as closer to a realpolitik approach to foreign policy.

Where was McCain when Obama attacked the free press?
feb20-march5_2017_mccain-nocrop-w710-h2147483647“That’s how dictators are made!” he shrieked. It was rich stuff, given that most of his European listeners do not have the same wide press freedoms found in the states. But more to the point, it was McCain up to his old tricks: Ingratiating himself to the anti-Trump press by playing its champion, in a bid to be the media’s darling.

What stands out here is the hypocrisy of his claims. He’s suddenly concerned about press freedoms and dictators?
Where was McCain when President Obama was systematically violating press freedoms every which way to Tuesday?

Seven examples of Obama’s attacks on a free press spring to mind and not one of them drew any significant criticism from McCain.

McCain has ‘more hope than belief’ that GOP can investigate Trump White House

McCain, R-Ariz., was asked if he was confident the GOP majority in Congress was able to thoroughly look into the relationship between members of the White House and Russia.

“I hope so. And I have to believe so,” he said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” that aired on Sunday. “More hope than belief.”
And I think the rollout of the, quote, ‘immigration reform’ was an example of a need for an orderly decision-making process in the White House. And that, I think, is probably what’s plaguing them more than anything else right now,” McCain said.

RINO John McCain says TWO WORDS about Trump, has conservatives laughing
As for understanding the issues, again I think that McCain seriously underestimates Trump and has read him completely wrong. What’s more, I think a lot of John McCain’s hot air is his attempt to stay relevant and be in the limelight.

The strains in the European Union over Brexit and refugees are strains of their own making. Trump puts America first and frankly, I don’t give a rat’s ass if that upsets them. And I’ll say it again, the Cold War never ended, it shifted. These bozos just don’t get it and it is very, very dangerous. The executive order on refugees could have been rolled out better, but the substance of that order was constitutional and something that is necessary for the survival of this country. McCain needs to stop dissing the President and start looking for how he can help improve things.

SORRY FOR THE RANT. I JUST GET SO TIRED OF THIS WORLD CLASS POMPOUS ASS BEING HANDED AN OUTLET EVERY TIME HE WANTS TO EMBARRASS HIS OWN PARTY AND PRESIDENT. HE HAD HIS CHANCE. HE GAVE IT AWAY TO LOOK “GENTLEMANLY.” FUCK HIM.

AS USUAL, THERE’S A BUNCH OF USELESS CRAP I POSTED IN THE COMMENT SECTION… JUST TO SATE MY OVERINFLATED EGO

The Self-Beclowning Continues

It is an unfortunate state of affairs that the alt-left is so consumed with obstructing progress that they fail to see that, for all but those who suffer similar dementia, they look like a bunch of braying jackasses raising a racket and crapping on the floor of the building where they have to ‘work’, or some similar facsimile.

They are, at the time of this posting, in the middle of a 24 hour conniption fit, trying to convince one more RINO to join them in doing the teachers union’s bidding. They already have Murkowski from Alaska and the Maine Pain Susan Collins. That makes the vote 50-50, with Vice President Pence tasked with casting the tie-breaking vote on a cabinet nominee for the first time in history. The end game is to delay seating the president’s cabinet as long as possible, just for pure meanness.

[CtH: I just heard from Dearest that DeVos has been confirmed.]

Trump’s travel ban to be argued Tuesday in S.F. federal court

Robart said the states had shown that the travel ban was causing financial hardship to their residents and to institutions such as state universities, and were likely to prove that Trump’s order discriminated against Muslims.

While Trump responded with tweets about the “so-called judge” and his “ridiculous” ruling, Justice Department lawyers argued that Robart had harmed the nation with “judicial second-guessing of the president’s national security determination.”

Democrats are speaking for 24 hours in last push against Betsy DeVos

Activists have targeted those Republicans who they believe have reservations about DeVos, particularly those from rural states, where alternatives to public schools — such as those promoted by DeVos — are few and far between. But other than Murkowski and Collins, no Republican has indicated that their support is shaky.

What’s really behind Democrats’ all-night anti-DeVos show

Again, the only real issue here is her ardent support for school choice, including public charter schools and voucher programs to help families choose qualified private or parochial schools for their kids. The unions (rightly) see choice as a potentially fatal threat to their vast power.

The all-nighter is also a bit of virtue-signaling to the Dems’ angry base that they’re really, really trying to Stop Trump At All Costs. (Maybe this will end the noisy rallies outside Chuck Schumer’s house?)

Virtually all Senate Democrats poised to vote against remaining Cabinet picks

The Senate is scheduled to continue confirming Trump’s Cabinet nominees this week, with a vote scheduled for Tuesday to approve Betsy DeVos, nominated to run the Education Department. Senators are poised to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to serve as the next attorney general by the end of the week.

But those votes are expected to happen with little or no Democratic support.  Only Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) has announced plans to support Sessions. As of Monday, no Democrat has announced support for DeVos, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), nominated to lead Health and Human Services, or Steven T. Mnuchin, nominated as treasury secretary. They all are scheduled for up-or-down votes in the coming days.

[CtH: Soooooooo … when the economy improves and schools improve, Republicans will own it, right?  Hee hee!]

California Senate Leader Admits His Family Is In US ILLEGALLY With FAKE SOCIAL SECURITY CARDS

HIS BROTHER OWNS JOSE’S TACO STAND AND HIS BROTHER OWNS CHICO’S NAIL SALON AND QUICK LUBE

“I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under executive order, because if they got a false Social Security card, if they got a false identification, if they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB60, if they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members, you know, who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification. That’s what you need to survive, to work. They are eligible for massive deportation.”

So What Are We Protesting Today?

Apparently I’m not the only one who noticed the #STOP (pick a name) signs Tuesday night:
Senator Finds Hilarious Proof Liberals Were Ready To Protest Any Trump SCOTUS Nominee
Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse found evidence that liberal protesters at the Supreme Court Tuesday were ready to protest any nominee put forward by President Donald Trump.
Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to be a Supreme Court associate justice.
Sasse found signs that read “Stop,” with Gorsuch’s name written in marker.

UC Berkeley cancels right-wing provocateur’s talk amid violent protest
“This is what tolerance looks like at UC Berkeley,” Mike Wright of Berkeley College Republicans, the group that invited Yiannopoulos to the campus, said outside the student union building as smoke bombs went off around him.
As he spoke, someone threw a glass bottle of red paint at him. The bottle shattered and splattered paint on his clothing. “It’s sad,” he said.

President Donald Trump reacted to the massive rioting at UC-Berkeley in response to a scheduled campus speech by Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
“If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?” Trump wrote on Twitter early Thursday morning.

Thousands of protesters gather outside Chuck Schumer’s apartment
WHERE THE HELL DO THESE PEOPLE COME FROM?
Thousands of angry demonstrators gathered outside Sen. Chuck Schumer’s luxury Brooklyn apartment building — holding up signs and chanting “What the f–k, Chuck?!” — to protest his lukewarm stance on President Trump’s cabinet picks.
“Senator Schumer needs to know we’re watching him,” fumed Brad Wolchansky, a 40-year-old soccer coach from Flatbush who was carrying a cardboard cutout of a giant eye on Tuesday night.

Variety Writer Calls for Protests at Oscars: ‘Our Very Perception of Reality is Up For Grabs’
Gleibermann concedes that in recent years “Oscar-night advocacy has become, more often than not, a breed of self-abrogating kitsch…conforming to what I’m tempted to call the Susan Sarandon Principle: The bigger the star, the more off-putting — and therefore ineffective — the display of high-minded compassion.”
However, to Gleiberman, protesting President Trump is not about specifically policies but because Trump lacks empathy.

RNC Highlights Democrats’ ‘Hypocrisy’ Over SCOTUS Nominee Filibuster

The new video from the RNC includes clips of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Patrick Leahy (Vt.), and Sen. Warren. The clips come from a variety of television appearances and Senate floor speeches in which lawmakers urged their Republican colleagues to hold hearings and votes on President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee from last year, Judge Merrick Garland.

This Is Already Tiresome

Tucker Carlson was interviewing some blow-dried Ken-doll wannabe congresspunk from California last night and this clown would not stray from his talking points no matter what Carlson asked him. Thankfully, the network panned to a shot of the daily protests outside the Supreme Court.

I may be the only person in America who noticed some idiot holding a pre-printed sign that had the word “OPPOSE” at the top with a blank white space underneath it. After Trump made his nomination known, they printed “GORSUCH” in the blank space with a Sharpie. They were prepared to protest whoever the president picked, even if it was the Wizard of Oz.

As with their shameless behavior regarding the Cabinet nominees, they are going to fight this appointment tooth and nail. In the end they will likely lose, although it is a case of one originalist replacing another. The all-out war will occur if one of the leftists, probably the Notorious RBG retires from the bench. She has already stated she’s not going anywhere until there is a Democrat president to replace her.

Think: The Dems wheeling the late and unlamented Robert C. Byrd on a hospital gurney for an important vote, or Tim Johnson who suffered a brain aneurism and was absent for almost two years and never replaced, since he represented North Dakota, which would have elected a Republican in his stead.

They’re playing a dangerous and potentially disastrous game. Tingles Matthews claimed that not a single Democrat senator will vote to confirm. I disagree. There are 12 senators from red states up for re-election in 2018. The playbook says there will be 5 or 6 democrats who will be given permission to confirm as long as there are not the requisite 60 votes to uphold the filibuster. They all sing from the same hymnal: ‘Lord, save my ass.’

[CtH: I am still puzzling over why RBG didn’t retire when Obama was in office.  She’s older than dirt and is unlikely to survive the 8 years Trump could be in office.  Probably she, like the rest of the Ds, thought Hillary was a shoe-in.  Oops!  Cuz replacing Scalia with Gorsuch is no biggie.  Replacing Ginsburg with someone the Republicans like will tip the bench back toward traditional values and put Roe v. Wade seriously at risk.  We can pray!]

Chris Matthews: Gorsuch Vote Will Go To A Filibuster; Democrats Will Not Vote For Him, “Not A One”

“I think this is going to come down to a sad denouement,” Matthews said Tuesday night. “I think it’s going to take 60 votes to get this approved and I think the Republicans will have their rank-and-file 52 votes will be there. But I don’t think the Democrats are going to give them a single vote which mean this will go to a filibuster.”

[CtH: Why is Tingles still talking?]

Chris Matthews on Democrats who vote for Gorsuch:  He will “be on that court for 30 years … they will have to answer for this guy.”

And since, according to Matthews, no Dems will vote to confirm, the nomination will fall short of the required 60 votes.

This Insurrectionist disagrees. No matter how much McConnell reveres Senate tradition, he will not let such a qualified jurist, and Trump’s first Court nominee, go down to ignominious defeat. If push comes to shove, I predict that McConnell will invoke the nuclear option, and Gorsuch will be confirmed on a simple-majority vote.

IOW, THE DEMOCRATS MUST CHOOSE WHAT HILL THEY WANT TO DIE ON

Here’s Why It Would Be Very Stupid for Dems to Block Neil Gorsuch
Since January 20, many Americans have been daydreaming about the possibility of rebuilding the government from the ground up, like an episode of Designated Survivor. But as fun as it would be to watch Democrats tantrum their way into blocking Judge Neil Gorsuch‘s Supreme Court nomination, it’s a bad idea and would follow in the Republicans’ dangerous precedent.

Dems to Filibuster SCOTUS Pick, Claim Seat ‘Stolen’: “We will use every lever in our power to stop this.”
Senator Merkley declared the seat could go to none of Trump’s picks because it was “stolen,” presumably by the Russians.

“This is a stolen seat. This is the first time a Senate majority has stolen a seat,” Merkley said in an interview. “We will use every lever in our power to stop this.”

Neil Gorsuch: Conservatives Praise Trump’s ‘Home Run’ Supreme Court Pick

GORSUCH MEETS WITH SCALIA’S WIDOW AND HIS SON


Conservatives were effusive in their praise on Tuesday evening for President Donald Trump’s choice for the U.S. Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch.

Protesters Arrested In NYC Demonstration Against Trump Supreme Court Pick
WONDER HOW LONG BEFORE THEY DECLARE THIS AGGRIEVED VICTIM WILL BE LABELED A ‘CIVIL RIGHTS ICON’?

[CtH: Where do they get these people who have TIME to go to all these protests?!]

Among those arrested was Gwen Carr, the mother of Eric Garner – the man who died on July 2014 on Staten Island as police tried to arrest him for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes. A grand jury later declined to indict NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who used a takedown move on Garner that many have described as a chokehold.

THIS WAS FROM YESTERDAY:
Once Again, Dems Deny Vote on Sessions… Where is GOP Leadership?
The Senate Judiciary Committee, once again, delayed voting Tuesday morning on the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general, pushing it back to Wednesday.

Therefore, the people of the United States remain without the proper attorney general, causing confusion and misdirection in the branch of government that ultimately provides safety and security to the American way of life.

BREAKING NEWS! PETE BRINGS YOU THE LATEST. THIS IS GREAT!!!

GOP changes Senate rules, approves Trump cabinet picks
A Democratic boycott couldn’t prevent President Trump’s cabinet picks for Treasury and health from gaining approval by the Senate Finance Committee.

The Republican-led committee changed its rules to allow it to operate without the boycotting Democrats and approve Steve Mnuchin for the Treasury post and Tom Price as Health and Human Services secretary.

The next step will be for the pair to be confirmed by the entire Senate.

THE REPUBLICANS MAY HAVE FINALLY GROWN A PAIR!

A Video Primer

There is much to put together on the news of the day: Trump nominating Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme court. I have not yet completed the task of putting things in order. However, in an effort to entertain early risers I’m posting some YouTube videos pertinent to current events.

Morning Joe Panel Blasts Democrats for Not Coming to Terms With Being in the Minority

Law Professor: Trump’s Immigration Ban Constitutional, Admin ‘Absolutely’ Had Right to Fire AG

[CtH: Turley – “It’s very inconsistent.”  Professor, you make the mistake of thinking Obamacrats care about law, policy, or values.  They don’t.  They care about personalities, feelings, and destroying America.  In that sense, the woman’s actions were totally consistent with what the Justice Dept did during Obama’s tenure.  Dearest thinks she’s been promised a pay off for pulling this stunt.  I’m inclined to agree.  Look for her to run for office with big Democrat money support.  https://polination.wordpress.com/2017/01/31/its-not-about-law-policy-or-values/%5D

I REMEMBER WHEN THE DEMOCRATS IN WISCONSIN PULLED THE SAME STUNT SO AS TO AVOID HAVING A VOTE ON NEUTERING THE TEACHERS’ UNION IN WISCONSIN. A BUNCH OF THEM STAYED IN A MOTOR INN DOWN HERE IN TOWN. EVENTUALLY THEY HAD TO RETURN AND THE REPUBLICAN-LED LEGISLATURE TOOK AWAY MANDATORY DUES DEDUCTIONS. GIVEN A CHOICE, MOST OPTED TO KEEP THE MONEY IN THEIR OWN POCKETS RATHER THAN GIVE IT TO THE BOSSES TO BE PASSED ON TO THE DEMOCRAT PARTY.

Dem Senator Compares Trump’s Immigration Order to Japanese Internment Camps

[CtH: Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) lies AGAIN about how the executive order targets Muslims.  It DOESN’T.  And for crying out loud, if banning immigration from SOME COUNTRIES is comparable to rounding up Japanese-American citizens into internment camps, then where the heck was the outrage when Presidents Carter and Obama DID THE SAME THING?  They’ve lost their minds.  Or maybe they never had any.]

Hatch Praises Judge Gorsuch’s Nomination to Supreme Court

Pelosi: It’s a very hostile appointment… Lovely family, I’m sure. But as far as your family is concerned, uh, uh, if you breathe air, drink water, eat food, take medicine or in any other way interact with the courts this is a very bad decision.

[Pelosi says Gorsuch is “well outside the mainstream of American legal thought.”  By this, she means he doesn’t legislate for Progressive social change from the bench.]

Tips for Democrats

John Nolte offers Democrats 9 hints for learning how to talk to “real people.”

Obviously, I don’t expect Democrats to do any of this stuff, because they seem to be incapable of learning.  But that is fine with me, since it likely means four more years for Trump!

Meanwhile … this is really good.  Wise and funny, my favorite combination.

According to the leftwing Politico, Democrats are attending classes to learn tips on “how to talk to real people.” Politico only fabricates damaging stories to hurt Republicans, so this must be true. As someone who was a Democrat until his mid-twenties, as someone who grew up in a working class household, as someone who was once a member of the working class, let me see if I can’t help.

Democrats want to better relate to the “real people” who helped elect President Trump, here is the best advice I can offer…

1. Step Away From the Pussy-Hats

This isn’t even a joke. What were you morons thinking running around all weekend on national television with your heads sticking out of cardboard vaginas? Listen, I’m the most live-and-let-live guy you’re ever gunna meet. As long as it doesn’t violate my rights or happen on my porch, how consenting adults live their lives is the least of my concerns.

If Democrats want to represent weirdos, fine.

But for the Party of Harry Truman to allow itself to be defined by humorless harpies wrapped in papier-mâché  lady parts… Donald Trump thanks you, and I don’t want to talk to you, because you’re creeping me out.

2. Stop Hating  Us

Parents who would rather not have a man in a skirt pee next to their young daughter are not Nazis.

You always talk to us as though we need correcting. It is not only insulting, it is authoritarian and sinister.

Until you stop hating us, our shields are going to be up. That is no way to have an honest conversation.

3. Stop Correcting Our Speech

Correcting someone’s speech is bossy, except I’m not allowed to tell you that because “bossy” has been disallowed by your Speech Police.

How can we have an honest conversation if I constantly have to be on guard over words? Someone who is on guard all the time, someone who is worried you might have a seizure if they call an illegal immigrant an illegal immigrant, isn’t going to open up to you.

And they sure as hell aren’t going to listen to you.

4. No One Wants to Talk to Elizabeth Warren

Senator Elizabeth Warren is a walking pussyhat.

In fact, I think her Indian name is “Shrieks with a Pussyhat.”

“Real people” simply cannot relate to a joyless, elite, wealthy, urbane, elderly white woman who reminds them of their first wife. Replacing Hillary Clinton with Elizabeth Warren is like replacing New Coke with Zima.

Democrats have the hectoring old biddy vote in the bag. The face of your Party should be a Senator Joe Manchin. He represents the kind of people you want to attract.

 5. You Are Not Superior

My least favorite people in the world are those who “escape” small town America and then look back on it with contempt, from their Manhattan Ivory Tower.

After years of working with my hands, in the outdoor heat and bitter cold, breaking my back… I figured out that this was not how I wanted to live my life. So I got out.

Here’s the thing… What separates me from the modern-day Democrat is that I have nothing but admiration for the working class. I don’t look back at those years or the people I worked with through a lens of contempt.

Write this cold truth down…

If artists and writers and journalists and pundits and actors and activists and teachers and comedians and late night television hosts, all disappear tomorrow, we would miss them but the world would keep right on turning.

Try to live one week without auto mechanics, plumbers, janitors, truck drivers, farmers, fishermen, garbage men, bus drivers, the guy who plows the snow, the men who melt steel and stock the shelves and tow your car.

These are the men and women who get up every morning to break their backs to keep our civilization intact.  Compared to them, nothing you or I do matters. It is not even close.

You might not like the fact that they smoke Winstons, eat cheeseburgers, tell inappropriate jokes, own firearms, and prefer NASCAR over “Scandal,” but damn your soft hands to hell for not respecting and admiring them.

6. Listen

The modern-day Democrat Party is now the Party of shouting others down.

You’re too busy screaming RacistSexistHomophobeXenophobeRedneckDepolorable! to listen.

You are too busy signaling your own virtue to hear what I have to say.

7. Join Us

Here in my small North Carolina town, many of my neighbors have visited the big cities, and through the Internet, television and movies, we have all spent real time in your world. FACT: We know a whole lot more about your culture than you do ours.

We have been to your museums. When have you been to our NASCAR race?

We have visited and toured, and, even for a time, lived in your cities. Outside of a campaign stop, when have you spent real time in our town?

We have watched and enjoyed your foo-foo movies and television shows. When have you given our faith a real chance?

We have read your websites and watched your news channels. When have you engaged in a single activity that helps you relate to us?  We know all about you. Now learn about us. Come. Join us. Not as a superior social scientist studying a specimen, but as a fellow human being.

Take a two-month leave. Rent a room in a small town. Get a temporary job at the Walmart. Eat at Bojangles. Try the Big Gulp. Buy a raffle ticket at the Church picnic. Put down the iPhone and sit on a porch.

Hate to pop your bubble, but YOU are the parochial, narrow-minded ones, not us.

8. Say What You Mean

“My househelper, a visually-impaired, Native American little person of color, who is a bit cerebrally-challenged but still an exceptional LGBTQQIP2SAA of differing sobriety, is now engaged in domestic incarceration.”

Just say that your retarded, blind-drunk, gay, Indian-midget of a maid got married.

9. Stop Taking Classes On How to Talk to ‘Real People’

In order to talk to real people, you have to be a real person.

Maybe start there.

Obama ended “wet foot, dry foot” for Cuban refugees

The left-wing’s rage over Trump’s immigration policy change is hypocritical, given that they had no problem whatsoever just a few weeks ago when Obama ended “wet foot, dry foot.”

This longstanding immigration policy allowed any Cuban who made it to U.S. soil to stay and become a legal resident.

Obama said that by sending unvetted Cubans back home, “We are treating Cuban migrants the same way we treat migrants from other countries.”

Actually … not so much, since Obama had a long-standing policy of requiring LEOs to ignore immigration law when it came to illegals who had come across the Rio Grande.

Personally, I think his attitude toward the latter was because those illegals tend to vote Democrat, even while they’re still illegal … something BTW that he TOLD THEM shortly before November’s election WAS A-OKAY.

As for banning Cuban refugees?  Well, they tend to become Americans and vote Republican.

Ridiculous Republicans Raise My Blood Pressure!

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.  Their statements are mostly b.s. and lies.

my-grammy-read-the-eo

Sen. John McCain: “There’s so much confusion out there,” McCain said on “Face the Nation.” “Obviously this process and these conclusions were not vetted.” He warned the order could be used as propaganda by ISIS for recruiting.

[So instead of using your bully pulpit to INFORM VOTERS what’s actually in the executive order, you promote the Democrats’ hyperbole and fake news.  Well done, Senator RINO.  You schmuck.]

Rep. Carlos Curbelo: “I expect that these executive orders are in fact temporary and that once the Administration strengthens the vetting process, we can continue our tradition of welcoming those who are persecuted in an orderly manner and without any kind of religious test.”

[“I expect …”  Duh, yeah, cuz THAT’S WHAT THE EXECUTIVE ORDER SAYS, you ignorant blowhard!]

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen: “I object to the suspension of visas from the seven named countries because we could have accomplished our objective of keeping our homeland safe by immediate implementation of more thorough screening procedures.”

[And all the years that Obama did NOT implement the screening procedures that were recommended, you were doing what with your mouth and your congressional position?]

Rep. Charlie Dent: “This is ridiculous. I guess I understand what his intention is, but unfortunately the order appears to have been rushed through without full consideration. You know, there are many, many nuances of immigration policy that can be life or death for many innocent, vulnerable people around the world.”

[Right.  Like that Iraqi guy who was killed waiting for his visa during Obama’s BAN ON REFUGEES FROM IRAQ.]

Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick: “While we certainly need to enhance our current vetting process and significantly reform our immigration policies to make sure terrorists are not exploiting our nation’s proud tradition of freedom and acceptance, the President’s policy entirely misses the mark.”

[And your plan would be what exactly?]

Rep. Justin Amash: “It’s not lawful to ban immigrants on basis of nationality. If the president wants to change immigration law, he must work with Congress.”

[Obama banned Iraqis.  Plus, coming in to this country is a privilege, not a right. Just like it is if one of us tries to go to some other country.  Plus, where were you when Obama was ordering LEOs to IGNORE IMMIGRATION LAW?]

Rep. Barbara Comstock: “The President’s Executive Order issued yesterday went beyond the increased vetting actions that Congress has supported.”

[Too bad none of you made any of that stuff happen while Obama was squatting in the WH.]

Sen. Susan Collins: “The worldwide refugee ban set forth in the executive order is overly broad and implementing it will be immediately problematic.

[Oh COME ON!! It’s not a “worldwide refugee ban”, you stupid cow!  It’s seven nations and it’s for a specific amount of time while we shore up our vetting process!  READ THE ORDER, DAMMIT!]

Sen. Jeff Flake: “It’s unacceptable when even legal permanent residents are being detained or turned away at airports and ports of entry.”

[And these legal permanent residents were, ummmm, lemme think, vetted and allowed in, right?  Oh yeah.  That’s what I thought.  So big f*ing deal.  Some folks got delayed at the airport.  Small price to pay to keep suicide bombers out.]

Sen. Ben Sasse: “If we send a signal to the Middle East that the U.S. sees all Muslims as jihadis, the terrorist recruiters win by telling kids that America is banning Muslims and that this is America versus one religion. Our generational fight against jihadism requires wisdom.”

[Asshat.  Don’t use a minute of your time in the press spotlight to CLARIFY what the order actually says, cuz that would be like, I dunno, too pro-Trumpish or something?]

Sen. Rob Portman: “This was an extreme vetting program that wasn’t properly vetted.”

[This is NOT A VETTING PROGRAM.  Did you even read the order?  I did!  It’s posted here:

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/01/28/politics/text-of-trump-executive-order-nation-ban-refugees/

And if that’s too COMPLICATED for you, Mr. Senator, cuz of all the big words, you can read the simplified version I wrote and posted here:

https://polination.wordpress.com/2017/01/29/protecting-u-s-from-terrorists/%5D

Sen. Cory Gardner: “I urge the Administration to take the appropriate steps to fix this overly broad executive order.”

[See what I said to Senator Portman.]

Sen. Bob Corker: “[T]his executive order has been poorly implemented, especially with respect to green card holders.”

[Green card holders aren’t affected.  Butthead.  READ THE DAMN ORDER!]

Sen. Lindsey Graham: “Such a hasty process risks harmful results…. And we should not turn our backs on those refugees who have been shown through extensive vetting to pose no demonstrable threat to our nation, and who have suffered unspeakable horrors, most of them women and children.” (in a statement with John McCain)

[The order allows for case-by-case exceptions.  READ THE DAMN ORDER!]

Rep. Elise Stefanik: “I oppose President Trump’s rushed and overly broad Executive Order.”

[READ THE DAMN ORDER!]

Sen. Lamar Alexander: “This vetting proposal itself needed more vetting.”

[Oh, wow.  THAT’s really perspicacious /sarc. Oh wait.  You’re too dumb to know any big words.  Well, google it.  Or do you not know how to use the internet?]

Rep. Will Hurd: “This visa ban is the ultimate display of mistrust and will erode our allies’ willingness to fight with us.”

[Bullsh*t.]

Rep. Mike Coffman: “While I’ve supported heightened vetting procedures for those wanting to travel to our country, I have never, nor will I ever support a blanket travel ban for people solely based on ethnic or religious grounds.”

[OH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. READ THE DAMN ORDER.  IT ISN’T A BLANKET TRAVEL BAN AND IT DOES NOT TARGET ANYONE BY ETHNIC OR RELIGION. ARGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!]

Gov. John Kasich: “In probably many Arab capitals today, people are like, ‘What is America doing?’ He told WashPo.

[Why the hell don’t you use your exalted position as governor to INFORM THEM.  But lemme guess … you didn’t read the order yourself, right?  You just caught what some Democrat blowhard said on MSNBC?]

Stupid people don’t violate their own party’s wishes.  Corrupt people do.  And the most likely reason a corrupt person would say stupid and deceitful things that are in lock-step with the most extreme factions of the OTHER party is blackmail.

By their fruits we shall know them.  Their fruits tell me that Democrats have got something on these Ridiculous Republicans and will destroy their careers if they don’t march to the tunes played by the Progressive Nazi Collaborator George Soros.
