Wake Me When It’s Over

There are days when it is difficult in the extreme to find the motivation to park in front of this machine and begin my daily sojourn into the belly of the political beast. There was a time a couple years ago when there was a lot of discussion and back and forth on this blog but I suspect most have gotten bored or just lost interest and moved on. Many days it is only through a sense of indebtedness to what this has meant to me keeps me doing it.

As you all are well aware, Obama gave his farewell ‘F*ck you, America’ speech last night before 20,000 adoring, brain-dead acolytes at McCormack Center. They hung on every lie that spilled from his purple lips. He even mustered up a few tears when he talked about his baby mama and his two jaded offspring. I could fill an entire post with articles about this exercise in sophistry, but I seriously doubt you care, and frankly, I don’t either.

On the remote chance you’re interested, here are some of the headlines at Brent Bozell’s site, Newsbusters:

  • ABC Loses It Post-Obama ‘Sermon on Democracy’; ‘Song of Hope’ Showing ‘What’s Possible’
  • CNN Laments Being Unable to Hear a Good Speech ‘Like This’ from Trump
  • Tom Brokaw: Barack Obama Has Been a ‘Scandal-Free’ President
  • Goodbye Gush: MSNBC Bids Farewell to ‘Excellent,’ ‘Top 10’ Obama
  • Still ‘Thrilled!’ Chris Matthews Looks Back at ‘Physically Stirring’ Obama
  • CBS, NBC Go Numb in Obama Farewell Preview; ‘He Was the Embodiment of Hope’

HERE’S A STORY YOU WON’T SEE IN THE MSM:

“Women’s March on Washington” devolves into racial identity politics fight

Which brings us to The Women’s March on Washington, scheduled for the day after Trump’s inauguration. It appears that the concept was grassroots, but it’s now a big liberal activist group feeding frenzy. Here’s a partial list:


Judicial Watch Goes After ‘Another Corrupt Politician — Eric Holder’

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called Monday’s “records request” an effort to “expose how California state legislators are wasting tax dollars to take care of another corrupt politician – Eric Holder – under the guise of resisting the rule of law on immigration and other matters.”

[CtH: I seriously wish I had more money, so I could throw some at Judicial Watch. I get their announcements in my Facebook feed and am salivating over all the cases they’re going after.]

Ventura Loses Appeal to Reinstate $1.8M Verdict

The Supreme Court has turned away former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura’s bid for reinstatement of a $1.8 million verdict in his defamation case against the estate of slain Navy SEAL and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle.

[CtH: I thought Ventura was mostly just a joke until he did this and then I switched to thinking he is something I don’t say out loud because I’m a lady.]

Delusional to the Bitter End

Barack Obama has 22 more days to wreak as much havoc as he possibly can. A man of character would be helping his successor with the transition of power. Not him. He came into office with a gigantic chip on his shoulder and a fire in his belly to inflict as much pain as he could because of America’s wealth and power. His eight-year reign of terror has been a non-stop crusade to weaken the US, embarrass us internationally, and crush the American spirit through taxes and executive orders when a republican majority in the House and Senate would shun complicity in our destruction. He has packed the courts, declared huge swaths of land off limits for energy exploration, released more than a thousand felons, and is desperately trying to empty Gitmo before he leaves. It is certain he will issue many more pardons on his last day and will not go quietly. The Enslaved Press will allow him to pontificate about everything Trump does. He’s already convinced himself if the economy improves, he did that. People like him are so far out of touch with reality they are beyond rational thought.

Obama expands environmental legacy with 2 Western monuments
The Bears Ears National Monument in Utah will cover 1.35 million acres in the Four Corners region, the White House announced Wednesday. In a victory for Native American tribes and conservationists, the designation protects land that is considered sacred and is home to an estimated 100,000 archaeological sites, including ancient cliff dwellings.
In Nevada, a 300,000-acre Gold Butte National Monument outside Las Vegas would protect a scenic and ecologically fragile area near where rancher Cliven Bundy led an armed standoff with government agents in 2014. It includes rock art, artifacts, rare fossils and recently discovered dinosaur tracks.
The White House and conservationists said both sites were at risk of looting and vandalism.

Obama Admin Rushes To Resettle Refugees During Last Days In Office
From the start of Fiscal Year 2017, Oct. 1 2016 through Dec. 27, a total of 25,671 refugees have been resettled in the United States — little over 290 refugees per day. During that same time period in 2015, 13,791 refugees were resettled, almost 157 per day. The Obama administration resettled nearly 85,000 refugees in FY2016 and the White House is on pace to resettle nearly double that amount.

Hey, maybe Obama should use recess appointments to pack the courts before leaving office

That leaves one potentially big stick in Obama’s rapidly shrinking arsenal: recess appointments of judges to fill scores of federal-bench vacancies — up to and including Antonin Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court.
There’s a problem with this, which is that the Supreme Court ruled in 2014 that Obama had no right to make recess appointments to the Labor Relations Board (in 2012) while the Senate was in pro forma session. But Kilgore suggests there is a way around this. In involves making the appointments in the seconds between the end of one Senate session and the beginning of the next one:
HIS ‘APPOINTEES’ WERE RULED ILLEGAL BY SCOTUS AND HE WAS ORDERED TO REMOVE THEM. THEY’RE STILL THERE. HE ALWAYS IGNORES LAWS THAT DON’T SUIT HIS NEEDS.
The passage of Obamacare via reconciliation, the decision to use the nuclear option, the Senate Majority leaders lies about Mitt Romney’s taxes, the aforementioned “recess appointments” to the Labor Relations Board, the President’s unprecedented expansion of prosecutorial discretion under DACA, his kill list and use of drones against U.S. citizens, the payment of subsidies to insurers despite a requirement to make payments to the Treasury. Not to mention the Democrat-led attempts to request a blanket pardon for “dreamers,” to rally faithless electors to attempt to change the outcome of the election and to demand a special classified briefing for electors—all of which took place in the last month. Granted those last three didn’t work out but not for lack of trying.

Emails show how Reid’s ‘nuclear option’ helped Obama regulate Internet

You may recall that earlier this year, about three years after the nuclear option helped Obama establish a liberal majority on the D.C. Circuit, a three-judge panel on the case decided a key case on FCC regulation of the Internet.
Democratic appointees at the FCC had been trying to regulate the Internet essentially like a utility, but up to that point they had been blocked in the D.C. Circuit. But this time, the pool of judges from which the panel on the case was drawn was a lot more favorable. And the result in this case was a 2-1 decision in favor of the FCC position.

Krauthammer: Obama Semi-Delusional Over Just How Damaged He Left the Democratic Party

Two Faced Obama

2016_12-21-obama-two-face

Technically, the gas and oil ban is not an executive order, because a little-known provision in the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act of 1953 says the president “may, from time to time, withdraw” federal waters that are not already leased from oil and gas development.

Mmmmmmmmm … call me crazy, but I don’t think indefinitely removing millions of acres of federal waters from oil and gas development quite fits the spirit of “from time to time.”

But that’s Obama all over.  Although he has not issued as many executive orders as former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, he has used them to do a lot more “ruling from the throne” with his famous pen.

He explained why in the same interview where he said Trump should go to the trouble to pass legislation.  See, HE only switched from getting bills passed to ruling by fiat because the stupid old voters went and stole his congressional majorities.

“In my first two years I wasn’t relying on executive powers because I had big majorities in the Congress and we were able to get bills done, get bills passed,” Obama said.

One of Obama’s sweeping, non-legislative, “I’ve got a pen” executive orders would have allowed millions of illegal immigrants to be shielded from deportations and apply for work authorization programs. The Supreme Court blocked it earlier this year.

Trump has said his use of executive orders will “serve a much better purpose” than what Obama’s done.

Electors only “act by authority of the state.”

The guest on this Tucker Carlson video says the Constitution gives electors the right to vote their conscience.  He’s 100% wrong.

Law Newz explains:

“In the seminal decision of Ray v. Blair, the Supreme Court made clear electors act at the privilege of the state that empowers them, and do NOT enjoy any special right to vote as they please.

“Article II, section 1 of the Constitution gives states the rights to select their electors as they please, including a right to require party and candidate loyalty.”

Washington Prepares for Trump’s Executive Eraser

Trump’s determination to tap his executive authority next year in all its many forms will demand sharp legal advice and patience. Some regulatory reversals he has in mind, for instance, are predicted to take two or more years to accomplish. Other Obama policies will be easier to erase.

Trump Selects Oklahoma AG Fighting EPA Regulations to Lead EPA
THIS PICK HAS ENVIRO-WEENIES GOING BALLISTIC

The Oklahoma attorney general, who the New York Times described as a “hero to conservative activists,” is one of the Republican attorneys general who formed an alliance with the country’s top energy producers to put a stop to Obama’s regulatory agenda.
Pruitt, along with Greg Abbott of Texas, planned a legal effort starting in 2014 to counter the Obama administration’s string of regulations, including on climate change. Their efforts resulted in a 28-state lawsuit against Obama’s climate change rules, which is expected to move to the Supreme Court.

Trump Day One To-Do List: Repeal $1.7 Billion Of Dodd-Frank Rules
THE TWO JERKOFFS ON BARRY’S LEFT (THE ONES HOLDING IN THEIR COLOSTOMY BAGS) ARE THE MAIN CULPRITS IN THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

The Dodd-Frank financial “reform,” passed by Democrats and signed into law by President Obama in 2010, is arguably the most misguided and economically harmful piece of legislation ever imposed on the country (the second, arguably, is ObamaCare).
As we’ve noted in this space before, one of the main reasons the economy has been stuck in neutral for the past six years has been the millstone of a 2,300-page law that has spawned multitudes more pages of costly and economically foolish regulations. The law has calcified the credit markets, forced community banks out of business, and unleashed an unaccountable, out-of-control agency that goes by the innocent-sounding name of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Ohio approves bill to ban all abortions after the heartbeat of the fetus is first detected
The so-called ‘heartbeat’ abortion bill has been approved by Ohio’s state House. It would see almost all abortions banned after the first heartbeat is detected. Bill only makes exception if the mother’s life is in danger and not in rape cases. Legislation is now being passed to state governor John Kasich for his approval.
AS IT SHOULD BE.

[CtH: I have long said that the standards for determining death should be the same ones for determining life.  Currently, the standard for determining life is whether or not the baby’s nearest kin want him or her to live, while the standard for determining death are cessation of heart beat and brain activity, both of which are detectable in fetuses before many women suspect they’re even pregnant. Of course, if the euthanasia creeps get their way, we’ll make death like abortion where the people who are most likely to resent the expense and bother of caring for the helpless individual gets to decide whether or not to off him or her.]

Whoa: Liberals Mull Scheme to Temporarily Seize Control of Senate, Confirm Obama’s SCOTUS Nominee
On January 3, 2017, Democrats will hold the majority in the Senate for a few minutes, until the newly-elected Senators are sworn in. Biden could convene the Senate in those few minutes and call for a vote. The majority could then suspend the rules and vote in Merrick Garland. The key here is that VP Biden would have to be willing to convene the Senate and recognize Senator Dick Durbin instead of Mitch McConnell.  Durbin moves to re-nominate Garland, and Senate Democrats then vote to confirm him. They will have a quorum for those few minutes. It’s bold. Garland would be confirmed by 34 Democrats and no Republicans.

Valerie Jarrett: Trump Victory Was ‘Soul-Crushing,’ ‘Punch to the Stomach

Jarrett said, “We were surprised by the outcome of the election. It kind of was like a — I’m not sure what the right analogy would be, but like a punch in the stomach, let’s say. Soul-crushing might be another description. But that’s the democracy that we have. The people get to decide and the elections matter and we have to get about the business of doing our jobs.”

Barack “MeToo!” Obama
Donald Trump began a Thank You Tour this past week to celebrate his victory with those who supported him in the election.  Naturally, “MeToo!” Obama decides he needs to do a tour as well.
Fox News Chief National Correspondent Ed Henry told Fox & Friends this morning that behind the scenes, Obama’s advisors are planning a Farewell Tour in mid-January before he leaves office.
Not for the same reasons, of course.  Trump is doing it to thank us; Barack “MeToo!” Obama is doing it so people can thank him. Amazing, isn’t it?
Obama flies to Hawaii in less than two weeks and will stay there until after the New Year. Then, he’ll hop aboard Air Force One, return to Washington just in time to launch his Farewell Tour.
Said Ed Henry: “I’m told there’s at least three cities that President Obama will be giving major speeches in arenas. One of them is Chicago, his sort of adopted hometown. They’re looking at the United Center there, where the Chicago Bulls play.”
He can’t wait three weeks and do a little tour on his own dime?  What’s wrong with holding a “I’m a Private Citizen Now” tour?  I guarantee, tens of thousands of Americans who didn’t vote for Obama would turn up to celebrate that.
No. Obama wants to do this because he is continuously being upstaged by the man who will replace him.  And nobody puts Barry in the corner!

Let the Games Begin

If anybody knows how to jerk the press around, it has to be Donald Trump. I can imagine he gets a real kick out of them making fools of themselves as they try to trip him up at every turn. He slipped out the other night to have dinner with his family at 21, a high-end steak house. It so happened there was a reporter there who immediately tweeted to all his co-conspirators that he was there. High dudgeon all around. How dare he actually go to dinner with his family without checking with them first? The nerve of the guy! Who does he think he is, the president?
FROM NBC:
As Trump Leaves Press Behind for Steak Dinner, Incoming Admin Already Showing Lack of Transparency
In a highly unusual move, President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night left his Manhattan residence without notifying the reporters covering him or giving any indication of where he was going.
The maneuver seemed to deliberately limit access to the media.
The only way the press eventually ascertained his whereabouts was after a Bloomberg reporter, who happened to be dining at the 21 Club, tweeted a photo of Trump and some of his transition team in the Midtown steakhouse.
While the dinner choice left the media mad, diners inside the former speakeasy were ecstatic.
“There was a standing ovation when he came and left,” said Andrew Testo, a 43-year-old who was eating with friends. “He was with his whole family. It was like Sunday dinner with the Trumps, but on a Tuesday. It was awesome.”
THINK HE DID IT ON PURPOSE? YOU BETCHA. AND WITH GOOD REASON.

MEDIA WAR ON TRUMP: Top 28 of 35 US News Stories on Tuesday were Anti-Trump Hit Pieces
The top stories on Tuesday show the absolute anti-Trump bias by corrupt American media.
28 of the top 35 articles are anti-Trump hit pieces.
The headlines include:
— Trump Transition Shake-Up Part of ‘Stalinesque Purge’ of Christie Loyalists
— Was Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s Attack Dog, Paid Illegally?
— There’s No Such Thing as a Good Trump Voter

Noted Constitutional Scholar, Barbra Streisand, Urges Obama To Bypass Senate, Appoint Supreme Court Justice Unilaterally
“According to the Washington Post, he has the power to do this since Congress has refused to vote, and apparently that can be considered a waiver of its rights to advise and consent,” she said.
Her Washington Post citation referred to an April 8 op-ed by Gregory L. Diskant, a national board member of the liberal advocacy group Common Cause, who argued that the Senate would have “waived its right” to confirm a justice if it failed to do so in a “reasonable amount of time.”

Democrats’ new Senate leader open to filibustering Trump’s Supreme Court picks
schumer
COUNT ON OBSTRUCTION AT EVERY TURN
Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, said nominations to the high court should get support from both parties, and said the filibuster is a way to enforce that on a president. He pointedly noted that when his party changed filibuster rules three years ago, they left intact the ability to filibuster at the Supreme Court level.
“I’ll underline that we did not change the rules for Supreme Court because we thought on something as important as this, there should be some degree of bipartisan agreement,” Mr. Schumer said.

Nancy Pelosi On Trump Win: “We’ve Been Through Hell”
A lot of the newer democrat reps think after 14 years as leader, it’s time to put this swaybacked nag out to pasture.
One senior House Democratic aide described Tuesday’s meeting as being unusually contentious as members grappled with how the Democratic Party should rebuild following last week’s election losses, with some wanting new blood in leadership.
“After every single election cycle, she (Pelosi) says things are going to change” in how she interacts with the caucus, the aide said characterizing lawmakers’ concerns. “But then, she doesn’t do anything different. It’s the same inside circle” surrounding her.

President Trump is Going to Hit Some Very Nasty Greenies Where it Really Hurts
Like a baby sea otter on MDMA, basically: frolicking and swooping and frisking and diving in the lovely warm, salty water made up entirely of the tears of Hillary voters, greens, and the bien-pensant wankerati.
THE BIEN PENSANT WANKERATI…. DELINGPOLE HAS A WAY WITH WORDS
When it comes to dealing with people who behave badly and ruin the lives of others, I’m with the Old Testament rather than the New one: don’t turn the other cheek, let alone love them as thyself, but smite them, salt them, and crush them underfoot like the mutant slugs they are.
Nowhere, it seems to me, is the kind of retribution more necessary than in the field of environmentalism.

The MSM Savaging of Melania Trump Begins
And so, a piece at Yahoo News made an issue of a dress that Melania Trump recently wore. The headline read: “Melania Trump Wore a $1,655 Fiery Red Dress for 60 Minutes Interview.”
Were readers supposed to be outraged by the price tag? Given the media’s predisposition to smear the Trumps at every turn, I’ll assume the worst intentions about the headline.
COMPARING MELANIA TRUMP TO MICHELLE OBAMA IS LIKE COMPARING A MASERATI TO A DUMP TRUCK
Anyone remember the dress Michelle Obama wore a couple of years ago when she and Barry hosted French President Francois Hollande at the White House? It cost $12,000.
OF COURSE HER DRESSES COST MORE…. IT TAKES 40 YARDS OF MATERIAL FOR CHRISSAKE

Hillary Makes First Appearance Since Concession: I “Never Wanted To Leave House Again”
WHY, HILLARY…YOU LOOK LIKE SOMEBODY JUST WALKED OVER YOUR GRAVE
(IF YOU WATCHED “TOMBSTONE” YOU’LL GET THAT ONE)
A weary-looking Hillary Clinton said Wednesday evening at her first public appearance since she conceded to Donald Trump that she considered cancelling her speech to the children’s advocacy group but kept the commitment out of respect for her mentor.
‘I will admit coming here tonight wasn’t the easiest thing for me,’ she said at the Children’s Defense Fund’s gala in Washington, D.C.

Jason Chaffetz: We Aren’t Done With Hillary Yet
“We have to get to the truth. It was was never about a political targeting of Hillary Clinton. She created one of the biggest security breaches in the history of the State Department. We still have tens-of-thousands of documents we still haven’t seen, there’s more than Hillary Clinton involved in this, you have dozens of people within the bowels of the organization,” Chaffetz said.

With Trump’s Signature, Dozens of Obama’s Rules Could Fall

Dozens of major regulations passed recently by the Obama administration — including far-reaching changes on health care, consumer protections and environmental safety — could be undone with the stroke of a pen by Donald J. Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress starting in January, thanks to a little-used law that dates back to 1996.
And it comes with a scorched-earth kicker: If the law is used to strike down a rule, the federal agency that issued it is barred from enacting similar regulation again in the future.

No, Obama can’t grant ‘amnesty’ by pardoning illegal immigrants
In reality, the president does not possess this authority, as unauthorized presence in the U.S. is a civil violation, not a criminal one. Presidential pardon power only applies to federal crimes, described as “offenses against the United States” in the Constitution. As such, “a pardon can’t make someone a citizen or lawful resident,” explains John Harrison, a law professor at the University of Virginia. “Deportation is not a criminal proceeding, it’s a civil process that removes from the country someone who is not entitled to be here.”

Giuliani: Trump can disavow Iran deal on day one
Former New York Mayor explains that Trump is not bound by Iran deal since Obama never brought it to the Senate for approval.

“First of all, the president has a lot of options. President Obama didn’t do what he should have done, under the Constitution. He should have submitted that to the Congress, that’s a treaty. There’s no way of escaping the fact that that’s a treaty,” argued Giuliani.
“It should have been submitted to the Senate… he never did. What that means is, that deal is over with the current president. Trump can disavow it, as a matter of law, like that,” he continued.

Jason Riley: Harlem Gives President Trump a Chance
When I asked Pace, who retired from a job in dress manufacturing several years ago, if he thought Mr. Trump would ever win him over, he responded: “He said he’d protect Medicare. I can go along with that. He said he’d get rid of the Bloods and the Crips and the gangs—get them out of here. I like that. If he does those two things, he’s my man.”

USGS Announces Largest Oil And Gas Deposit Ever Assessed In U.S.
TRUMP KNOWS ENERGY IS THE LIFE BLOOD OF THE ECONOMY. HOPEFULLY, HE ALLOWS PRODUCTION TO START
On Tuesday, the USGS announced that an area known as the Wolfcamp shale contains 20 billion barrels of oil and 16 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
That is nearly three times more petroleum than the agency found in North Dakota’s Bakken shale in 2013.
“The Texas discovery is in a place that has been drilled before by conventional methods,” Jeff reported for NPR’s Newscast Unit. “But now that oil companies use horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing — or fracking — they can access reserves that previously were out of reach.”

Liberal hysteria over Trump is rapidly becoming self-satire
14955783_595587587314453_8459501322457812338_nIt turns out that the hundred million dollars’ worth of Hillary campaign demonization has paid off in creating millions of people gripped by hysteria over the utter evilness of Donald Trump. Calling Trump Hitler is already passé so the quest for superlatives of evil is running out of material. According to a U.S. Congressman, Hitler, and even Stalin and Mao are all pikers in terms of mass killing.

This Is No Time to Go Wobbly, Donald
Trump must continue to refuse to play the game.
Democrats have repeatedly proven that bipartisanship to them means that Republicans roll over for whatever Democrats want. If not, Republicans are tarred as obstructionists, racists, or whatever other epithet du jour. That’s because progressives are cultists hungry for more power so they can impose their ideological vision by any means necessary. Like Goldfinger, they don’t want Republicans to talk, they want them to die.

Obama sets new record for regulations, 527 pages in just one day
“This is astonishing and should be of great concern, and intolerable, to policymakers. It is remarkable enough that the all-time record has been passed before Thanksgiving,” he added.
Obama has promised to regulate by executive authority, but the sheer number of pages of regulations being rushed through is astonishing.

Trump said on the campaign trail that 70 percent of federal regulations “can go,” so the American Action Forum (AAF) put together a list of 48 major regulations Congress could invalidate under the Congressional Review Act (CRA).

“Together, those rules impose more than $42.5 billion in total costs, $6.5 billion in annualized costs, and 53 million paperwork burden hours,” AAF analysts Sam Batkins and Dan Goldbeck wrote in a new report.

Obama awards Springsteen, Redford and DeGeneres Medal of Freedom
Before he leaves office, President Obama is decorating a starry list of entertainers, newsmakers and civilians with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
It’s no surprise that Bruce Springsteen made the cut.
On Wednesday, Obama named 21 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, which is presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.
The list honors a who’s-who of Hollywood, including Tom Hanks, Ellen DeGeneres, Diana Ross, Robert DeNiro, Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, Robert Redford and Cicely Tyson.

Richard Engel: Syrian Doctor Says Obama Hasn’t Done Anything for People in Aleppo

I KNOW, I KNOW, SHOCKED, RIGHT?
The doctor actually said President Obama hasn’t done anything for us anyway. Look what just happened now. He’s in the basement of a destroyed hospital and he frankly didn’t think that anything could get worse,” Engel said.
“And he thought maybe with a new president things could get better, so frankly if you’re at rock bottom, which is what they are at in eastern Aleppo, maybe any change looks good,” he added.
At least 87 people, including four children, were killed Wednesday by air strikes over rebel-held eastern Aleppo, CNN reported.

Dem Rep Calls For Review Of Trump’s ‘Financial Empire’
“We have never had a president like Mr. Trump in terms of his vast financial entanglements and his widespread business interests around the globe,” Cummings wrote. “Moreover, we have not had a presidential candidate in modern times who has refused to disclose his tax returns to the American people.”

Some Random Thoughts and Assorted Stuff

So there I was, sleeping peacefully after posting this morning, when the phone rang. I never bother answering it (we have an answering machine…remember those?) and the first word I hear is: “Mama?” That’s all it takes. My wife, a senior citizen with a bad hip and two surgically repaired knees, burst out of her bedroom and grabbed the phone like a starving man with a ribeye steak. Miss Isabel has been sick for two days and her mom was going to leave her at home by herself until she can get her to the doctor later today. Grandma wan’t having any of it. They live in Dekalb, some 35-40 miles away. Makes no difference. She’s off to the rescue like she was shot out of a cannon. Such is life with a doting grandmother.

Congress is back for the lame duck session today after the break for the election. This can be an extremely dangerous time, since there are those bent on wreaking as much havoc as possible before they leave for good. The republicans seem to have mended fences and are eager to get back to work. There are literally hundreds of bills that were sent to the Senate for debate that the soon-to-be-gone shitheel Harry Reid wiped his wrinkled, liver-spotted backside with. He was the one who unilaterally decided to do away with the time-honored filibuster to shove hundreds of Obama’s leftist judges through the nomination process. He stopped short of including the Supreme Court.

Much to many peoples’ dismay Bitchy Mitchy said he would allow the Democrats to filibuster all of Trumps SCOTUS nominations. This would be a huge mistake. The trouble with the way the dems rule is that they never consider the possibility these tactics may be used against them. One of the overwhelming reasons people voted for Trump was that they knew the consequences of a liberal court would be. The notorious RBG is 88. She will be 90 before the next midterms. My guess is that the democrats will keep her there as long as possible, like Weekend at Bernies. Breyer and Kennedy are both in their 80s. If The Donald wins a second term he has a chance to place at least 3 judges on the bench. There’s no guarantee that his picks won’t end up like Souter or that backstabber John Roberts, but with a democrat president it would be a sure thing they’d be hard leftists.

Something else that occurred to me. I wonder if the media will show the same deference to Trump’s children that they did for Obama’s. (Don’t count on it.) Barron is 10 years old and could be 18 before all is said and done.
Compare this:
21-rnc-barron-trump-nocrop-w529-h373to this:
malia-obamath
Their behavior has been a disgrace, but has been widely accepted because they’re democrats.

Barry is on his final world tour, lecturing the world about what a tremendous job he’s done as president and hopes Trump will leave his One World Order intact. The way I look at it, winning gets us a twofer. Both Obama and the Bloody Bitch…GONE.

Obama has stated he’s going to stay in DC until Sashay finishes high school. I wouldn’t bet the farm on it. You can’t play golf in DC in January. Chicago either. My chips would go on the square that says his bony ass is off to Hawaii pronto. He can spend his days golfing, surfing, getting high, and collecting royalty checks from the books Bill Ayers wrote for him.

How refreshing will it be for us to have a president who wears suits when he speaks instead of his shirt sleeves, doesn’t wear mom jeans or ride a bike with one of those sissy foam helmets.

The last two Secretaries of State have been Hillary and Climate Change Kerry, the male gigolo. Word is that SOS will be Rudy Giuliani, if he wants it. Imagine the culture shock among the terrorist countries that are used to dealing with people they consider a pathetic joke. I think they’ll get along until the first time they try to play him and find out he won’t take any bullshit.

The personal attacks began election night and will no doubt continue until he’s out of office. How he governs is yet to be seen. I remain skeptical, given his past, but one thing is sure… whatever kind of president he turns out to be, it’s a helluva lot better than the alternative.

Crap….not enough room for the next batch of links. Life is filled with these bitter disappointments. Well,it’s time for another nap anyway.

TRUMP IS CERTAINLY NOT AN UNKNOWN. THIS IS A MONTAGE OF HIS RECORD OF TWEAKING HIS CRITICS.

A Confession from the Bunkhouse

It had been planned for months. This was to be my last post. After almost 6 years of spending hours a day documenting the corruption and filth of a democrat-dominated culture I’d had enough. The Clinton Crime Family, Obama rubbing his contempt for true Americans in our faces, hordes of illegals storming the border, feral blacks running wild committing acts of brutality, and a coming flood of Muslim men. It was so depressing I decided to live out my days sans politics, simply watching old TV shows and seeing the grandkids when I could.

To say that Trump’s victory caught an awful lot of experts by surprise would be a monumental understatement. Listening to some analysis this morning much became clear. Rather than spend money on ads during the waning days of the campaign he used it to organize at the grassroots level. Personally, I think his bringing pollster Kellyann Conway on board his team was genius. It seems she gave him some sound advice. She also excelled at going on CNN and MSLSD and bitch-slapping the talking anuses.

People that are largely ignored, working-class whites who pay the taxes to support welfare layabouts, global warming hoaxers, had their healthcare taken from them, have their young daughters forced to use a bathroom next to a 50 year old man in a dress, and are told they’re racist, bigoted, and homophobic.
One of the overwhelming reasons for the Trump victory was clearly the Supreme Court. Honest, law-abiding people were rightly terrified that their right to bear arms was in jeopardy, Citizens United would be overturned, and the country would be at the mercy of 5 liberals for the next few decades. If Trump is as smart as I think he is he will roll back the onerous EPA regulations to put the coal and oil production back into operation, cut corporate taxes to entice some of the trillions in capital sitting offshore to come home and energize our manufacturing base, commence building the XL pipeline, putting thousands of union workers back on the job and stemming the tsunami of illegals pouring over the border.

One of Trump’s strong points is surrounding himself with competent people. Choosing Mike Pence proved a brilliant choice. I’m sure Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani have a place in the Trump administration. The greatest thing that happened last night was that somebody finally put an end to that screeching harpy’s reign of terror.

Leftist Freak Out Thread, The Tears Are Sweet



I BROUGHT THIS UP ON FB LAST NIGHT
How Trump won: The revenge of working-class whites
Whites without a college degree — men and women — made up a third of the 2016 electorate. Trump won them by 39 percentage points, according to exit polls, far surpassing 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s 25 percent margin. They were the foundation of his victories across the Rust Belt, including a blowout win in Ohio and stunning upsets in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

In polling, these voters have expressed deep racial and cultural anxieties. In exit polls they were more likely than the country as a whole to say that illegal immigrants should be deported. But those polls also suggested economic concerns and hostility toward leaders in Washington were much more important factors driving them to Trump.

Tears and shock at Clinton’s election night party
14925521_10209459552798241_7657326744290141891_n
Well before midnight and still hours before the 2016 presidential race would be called, Clinton supporters began to leave.

Descending the steps down to the ground floor and walking out through the glass doors into the chilly night, some were crying and others were consoling family and friends. Many looked shell-shocked — unable to comprehend that the woman they believed would become the country’s next president was going to be defeated by Donald Trump.

CNN’s Van Jones: This Election Was A ‘Whitelash’
The Democratic blue wall is crashing down. Yet, on CNN, leave it to contributor Van Jones to throw the first racial commentary of the post-2016 election. This election was a “whitelash.”

Netanyahu declares Trump ‘a true friend of the state of Israel’ who will help bring ‘peace and stability in our region’
Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed Donald Trump as new American president
‘I look forward to working with him to advance security,’ Israeli leader said
His Education Minister said it marked the end of idea of Palestinian state
Many Western leaders have congratulated reality TV star on the victory
Education Minister Naftali Bennett, who heads the hardline Jewish Home party, said Trump’s victory eradicated the idea of a Palestinian state.
He said the unprecedented win was an ‘opportunity for Israel to immediately retract the notion of a Palestinian state in the centre of the country, which would hurt our security and just cause’.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said that he hopes ‘peace will be achieved’ during Trump’s term.
IMAGINE LIVING FOR 8 AGONIZING YEARS WITH YOUR SWORN ENEMY IN THE WHITE HOUSE. THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FINALLY HAVE A FRIEND.

What Donald Trump’s ‘ultra-conservative’ Supreme Court will look like
Scalia in February, Trump released a list of 11 candidates he would consider to fill the late justice’s seat if he became president. The list was a testament to hard-right, conservative values.
A majority of the nominees on the list sharply oppose women’s right to abortion, and eight of them are men. All of them are white.

Americans Vote To Preserve Heller, Second Amendment
Time and again Clinton openly admitted her disagreement with Heller–and her plan to use SCOTUS to tweak or reverse it–while simultaneously pushing enough gun control to abolish the Second Amendment. Trump took the opposite position: vowing to defend Heller with SCOTUS justices “in the mold of Justice Scalia” and to maintain the Second Amendment “in its strongest form.”
Clinton promised universal background checks, an “assault weapons” ban, a “high capacity” magazine ban, and numerous other gun controls. Trump promised to save the Second Amendment from “people like Hillary Clinton.” And he voiced direct opposition to expanding background checks or instituting “assault weapon” or “high capacity” magazine bans.

Hillary Clinton’s Loss Triggers Leadership Crisis for Democrats
And yet despite having virtually every possible advantage at her disposal, from more money to better staffers to better data, it was Clinton and her party that was repudiated in the biggest presidential shock in recent memory.
Bernie supporters warned the party — and they would not listen.
And for all its sophistication, Clinton’s widely hailed data-driven campaign, modeled on the successful Obama 2008 and 2012 turnout efforts, missed the mark.
Then there are key components of the Democratic coalition: Millennials, who stayed home or voted for third-party candidates, and black voters, who turned out in lower numbers than they did for Obama.

‘Meltdown of the night’ Bitter news anchor bemoans Trump’s election success
As Donald Trump triumphed in the race to the White House a television news anchor has bemoaned his incredible success.
YOUR TEARS ARE SWEET
“You’re not having a terrible, terrible dream. Also you’re not dead and you haven’t gone to hell.This is your life now, this is our election now, this is us, this is our country – it’s real.”
Social media users attacked the television anchor for her moaning comments following on from Mr Trump securing the key swing states Florida, Ohio and North Carolina.
One Twitter user wrote: “I’m sick of Rachel Maddow and all the MSNBC people acting like they’re so stunned that Donald Trump is winning. He stands for America.”

Debate moderator Martha Radditz holds back tears while discussing Trump’s victory
During Tuesday night’s election coverage on ABC News, Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Radditz appeared to be overcome by emotion when discussing the emerging reality that Donald Trump would soon be the commander-in-chief of the United States military.

Hillary Clinton Had Her Concession Speech Ready… But Was Too Upset To Give It
Hillary Clinton had her concession speech prepared – she just never thought she’d need to read it out loud.
And when the moment came early today to admit that her lifelong dream of becoming America’s first woman president had been dashed, she simply couldn’t face the world.

Executive orders, pardons, ‘midnight’ regulations expected as Obama presidency draws to close118_2016_obama8201_s878x586Look out for the executive orders, the “midnight” regulations and, perhaps most controversially, the pardons.
As President Obama runs out the clock on his eight-year tenure, analysts say, he still has plenty of business left undone, and they expect him to follow the lead of other presidents and issue a series of rules, to add to his list of executive orders, to continue his record-setting pace of commutations and perhaps add a controversial pardon or two into the mix.
