ISIS has claimed responsibility for the bombing of two Coptic churches in Egypt on Palm Sunday.
The bomb in St. George Coptic Church in Tanta killed 27 and injured 71.
The bomb at the Saint Mark Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Alexandria killed 13 and wounded 21.
During MSNBC’s coverage of the London attack yesterday, Matt Bradley expressed more concern about the violence helping conservative politicians than about the harm it had done to the victims!
Bradley also downplayed any possible connection between the attack and Islamic terrorism, saying that MI-5 had found no terror link so far.
Minutes later, London police announced there was a terror link.
Meanwhile, the political editor for the British magazine New Statesman tweeted:
Never mind that they all spilled the same color blood.
Weekly update from Judicial Watch
Former Obama advisor David Plouffe has been fined $90,000 by the Chicago Board of Ethics for illegally lobbying Mayor Rahm Emanuel on behalf of his post-White House employer, the Uber taxi company. His Democrat contacts made it easy for him to lobby for his employer with the Democrat mayor. The problem is that Plouffe never registered as a lobbyist.
Some college students are saying they will castrate themselves if Trump builds the wall. Yeah, right. And all those celebrities were going to leave the country if Trump got elected.
Judicial Watch is planning to sue the FBI, CIA, and NSA if they do not hand over records related to the wiretapping of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
More FAKE NEWS: Journos are claiming Trump referred to a terror attack in Sweden that never happened! Oh noes! Except Trump NEVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT A TERROR ATTACK. He said Sweden is having terrible problems because of all the refugees they took in, which is true.
Reuters interviewed a captured ISIS soldier who says he reads the Koran all day in his tiny jail cell to become a better person. He also says he raped more than 200 women from Iraqi minorities, something he said was encouraged and even considered virtuous by ISIS leaders. A total of 5,270 Yazidis were abducted last year, and at least 3,144 are still being held.
A woman Obama appointed to the FEC has submitted her resignation. She’s apparently been a no show at her job anyway since, it appears, Trump was elected. What a shocker. In 2014, she made an attempt to impose FEC regulations on online political web sites, including Drudge.
The Southern Poverty Law Center “reports” that anti-Muslim hate groups shot up from only 34 in 2015 to 101 in 2016. They got this faux figure by counting the 45 chapters of a single organization as 45 groups. This same group was listed as a single group in the 2015 report and it’s not a hate group. They also counted a bar sign as a hate group, because it had a politically incorrect message on it for a while. They also counted as “hate groups” a store that had posted a sign saying they wouldn’t sell to Clinton supporters or Muslims and an artist who drew a cartoon mocking Mohammed. They also listed conservative bloggers, the David Horowitz Freedom Center, the American College of Pediatricians, the Family Research Council, and the Jewish Political Action Committee as hate groups.
Yesterday may be most aptly described as a three ring circus.
Ring #1 had the Democrat hissy fit failing to stop the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary. Undeterred, they continued to stomp their feet and act less like the most deliberative body in the nation and more like kindergartners desperately in need of a nap. Today they aim their anger at AG nominee Jeff Sessions. Dizzy Lizzy Warren made such an ass of herself she’s not allowed to speak at all today.
Ring #2 had three liberal hacks in black robes assuming to dictate immigration policy and decide if the president should be tasked with what kind of freeloaders are allowed into the country or will they? The questions ran far afield as they grilled government representatives when they shouldn’t even be hearing the case.
Ring #3 was what CNN termed as a debate on Obamacare between Senator Ted Cruz and Bernie “the brain” Sanders. It wasn’t much of a contest as Cruz had his facts in order and poor Bernie had 3 weak talking points. It was 90 minutes of an old socialist taking a beat-down.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the Senate floor Tuesday that Warren had violated the upper chamber’s rules as she delivered a harsh speech opposing the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) for attorney general.
“Tonight I wanted to read that letter, and Sen. Mitch McConnell and Republicans came to the floor to shut me down for reading that letter,” Warren said in a Facebook Live video late Tuesday night. “So right now what I’d like to do outside the Senate, I just want to read the letter.”
Senator Elizabeth Warren Is Told To Take HER SEAT For Inappropriate Language
“I will not be silent while the Republicans rubber stamp an AG who will never stand up to the @POTUS when he breaks the law.”
Speaking on the Senate floor, Warren quoted from 30-year-old correspondence from Coretta Scott King relating to Sessions’ failed judicial nomination in the 1980s. It was part of a barnstorming speech by the Massachusetts Senator against Sessions’ suitability for the post and attacking his record on civil rights.
Mitch McConnell, the Republican majority leader, objected that Warren had broken Senate rules that prohibit one member impugning the conduct of another. Senators then voted 49-43 to uphold a ruling in McConnell’s favour.
He asked the court to ‘immediately’ lift a judge’s injunction or, a the very least, reinstate the part of Trump’s order that ‘extends beyond people who are in the US or who have been in the US.’

Ted Cruz CRUSHES Socialist Bernie Sanders in CNN Obamacare Debate
It was a debate for the ages. Texas Senator Ted Cruz, a constitutional conservative versus Soviet-style socialist Bernie Sanders on CNN Wednesday night over the future of the failed Obamacare debacle.
It was such a bloodbath for Soviet Sanders — so much so that leftist CNN decided not to have a discussion panel after the much-ballyhooed debate event and Twitter decided to downplay by refusing to trend any of the relevant hashtags that normally would go viral.
Sanders refused to address broken Democrat promises, promises that Americans are painfully experiencing today.
As expected, CNN filled the audience with sob stories from people touting Obamacare as the second coming.
Ted Cruz treated them with compassion, grace, and logic in responding to their concerns about the repeal of Obamacare and the replacements being discussed that would not negatively affect their current coverage.
When some in the audience gave specific personal testimonies how their lives were damaged by Obamacare, heartless socialist Sanders treated them like the number they would be under socialized medicine, often turning to his Marxist talking points to bail him out when he had no logical answer to the failed Democrat Party disaster.

“It’s interesting, you look at this map, this also very much looks like the electoral map that elected Donald Trump,” Cruz said, holding up the map of the counties.
“It’s really quite striking that the communities that have been hammered by this disaster of a law said, ‘Enough already.’”

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM THE COMMUNIST NEWS NETWORK?
“Senator Cruz, can you promise me that you and the Republican leaders in congress will have – actually have a replacement plan in place for people like me who depend on their Medicaid? In other words, I like my coverage, can I keep it?”
Below is a close up of the question that was asked to Senator Ted Cruz. The email is from a Gmal account as you can see from the top of the paper. The subject line reads “Your Question,” as the two photographs below show.

Had a checkup today. The good news is, my pacemaker’s doing fine. The bad news is the day ain’t over. Had lunch with DW at the tres chic Taco Bell. (I have a weakness for gordita supremes.)
There is the usual cascade of items today, but there are so many videos I thought I’d post some here and leave the heady stuff for the comment section.
The Super Bowl is Sunday, in case you haven’t heard. Not decided if I’m going to post any of the hopelessly overpriced ads. The New England Patriots’ owner, Robert Kraft, the coach, Bill Bellichek, and the star quarterback, Tom Brady are all friends of the President. Brady is getting all kinds of grief and even people who hate football are certain to tune in, in the hopes of seeing him get hurt for his unforgivable behavior.
To cleanse the palate, imagine archaeologists thousands of years from now sifting through the digital rubble of our civilization in search of scant bits of cultural data — and finding this. They would probably conclude that it’s newsreel footage from an esoteric tribal war fought long ago by lunatic warrior-poets, speaking ecstatic gibberish as they slaughter each other.
Which, pretty much, yeah.
Relatedly, how many times this weekend will various media remind us that Tom Brady is palsies with the president and that that’s a doubleplusungood thing to be?

PETE DARES TO BE DIFFERENT
Two days ago, President Trump signed an Executive Order about visa entry procedures and refugees from Syria. Although leftists’ heads are exploding, their claims are either totally exaggerated or flat out FAKE NEWS.
I have read the Executive Order and summarized it below in simple terms.
First, there there is no “Muslim Ban.” There is a postponement of entry from 7 countries (Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen) previously identified by the Obama administration as posing extraordinary risks. Most of the Muslim countries are not on the list.
Second, the list has nothing to do with Trump’s foreign business concerns. It was PRESIDENT OBAMA who first restricted visa waivers for those seven Muslim-majority countries. Funny how nobody complained or marched in protest, but now Trump does it and heads are exploding?
Third, it’s a suspension, not a ban. Trump has ordered an immediate evaluation of our visa procedures to better screen out those who would pose a risk to our safety.
Fourth, the suspension does not affect foreign nationals traveling on diplomatic visas, North Atlantic Treaty Organization visas, C-2 visas for travel to the United Nations, and G-1, G-2, G-3, and G-4 visas. Also, it allows waivers on a case-by-case basis.
Fifth, they’re also going to create a biometric entry-exit system to track travelers, as was recommended by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.
Sixth, refugees will be limited to 50,000 for 2017 and the feds will no longer dump them on state and local communities without their consent.
Seventh, the Attorney General is going to begin collecting and making public information regarding foreign nationals who have been charged with or convicted of terrorism-related offenses and/or gender-based violence against women, including honor killings.
There’s nothing here that should warrant all the hyperbole and sign waving. The order is about keeping Americans safe from people who want to hurt us. Anybody who has a problem with that needs to get his head examined.
