One of the advantages of being retired is that you can take a nap any time you want to. I enjoyed my weekly breakfast with my uncles this morning and felt like lying down for a bit when I got home. Woke up a little while ago and saw on Facebook a dear friend who lives in Florida plans to ride out the storm. Still praying.
It’s late, but maybe the folks who visit here early can catch this in the morning. I want you to know how much I appreciate all of you. [CtH: Back atcha, Pete!]
Tim Kaine: ‘I Don’t Know Enough About Antifa’
THIS CLOWN COULD HAVE BEEN OUR VICE PRESIDENT. LET THAT SINK IN.
Virginia Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine says he does not know much about members of so-called “anti-fascist” groups but says it is unfair to paint them with a broad brush.
Kaine’s son, Linwood, was arrested back in March at a pro-Trump rally at Minnesota’s state capitol on misdemeanor charges in connection with lighting smoke bombs.
[CtH: Democrats never let a little thing like ignorance stand in the way of their having firm opinions about stuff.]
Hurricanes Irma, Harvey are nature’s ‘wrath’ for Trump victory, Jennifer Lawrence claims
THE CLIMATE CHANGE NITWITS ARE BESIDE THEMSELVES
“You know, it’s this new language that’s forming. I don’t even recognize it. It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting.”
Hillary Accuses Matt Lauer of ‘Pointless Ambush’ in NBC Forum
Recalling the event in her self-serving account of the campaign, Clinton ranted: “Lauer had turned what should have been a serious discussion into a pointless ambush.” Why was she so upset with the morning show host who usually provided her a friendly forum? Apparently he asked too many questions about her e-mail scandal.
[CtH: Oh, the inhumanity!]
SHE JUST CAN’T LET IT GO.
Kid Rock Gives EPIC ‘Stump Speech’ at Grand Rapids
Despite YouTube reportedly removing various copies of Kid Rock’s epic ‘stump speech,’ during his concert in Grand Rapids, TGP has obtained a copy of it. The rockstar goes on a fiery tirade against his critics, the KKK and deadbeat dads.
Rock said the issue of single parenthood was near to his heart, but that America should not reward women who can’t take care of themselves, but keep having “kid after f*cking kid.”
“Of course we should help them out, I don’t want to sound like a jerk,” he added. “But let’s help them out with childcare, job creating, and put their goddamn asses to work!”
I HAD A YOUTUBE COPY, BUT THEY’VE ALL BEEN REMOVED. THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE IT. THERE IS A COPY EMBEDDED AT LINK. SO SICK OF THIS CRAP.
Sanders: I Understand Clinton’s Upset for Losing to the ‘Most Unpopular Candidate in the History of this Country’
THIS SORRY OLD BASTARD MAY BE HAPPIER THAN ALL OF US THAT SHE LOST.
[CtH: I think he’s a tad confused about how “Most Unpopular” is determined. To my way of thinking, the woman who LOST should get that trophy. ]
Limbaugh: If Ryan and McConnell would Work with Trump “for Just 3 Months” to Pass His Agenda, “Dems wouldn’t have a Prayer for 25 Years”
But they have not listened to Trump. They have not enacted his agenda. They have fought him every step of the way. It’s totally insane. They don’t want Trump to get credit for anything. They would rather see the entire Trump agenda fail. But they may be about to find out Trump can get things done without them.
DoJ makes “shocking” flip in SCOTUS religious liberty case
JUST THINK…A PRESIDENT WHO DOESN’T DESPISE CHRISTIANS
In a major upcoming Supreme Court case that weighs equal rights with religious liberty, the Trump administration on Thursday sided with a Colorado baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
The Department of Justice on Thursday filed a brief on behalf of baker Jack Phillips, who was found to have violated the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act by refusing to created a cake to celebrate the marriage of Charlie Craig and David Mullins in 2012.
Bannon on 60 Minutes: Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell ‘Trying to Nullify 2016 Election’
Former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon believes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) are trying to “nullify” the 2016 election because they do not believe in the economic nationalist agenda that got President Donald Trump elected.
When Is A Scandal Not A Scandal? When There’s A Democrat Involved
Corruption: A sitting U.S. Senator is currently on trial for bribery, and if he’s found guilty it could have major political ramifications. Haven’t heard about this case? That’s because the Senator in question is a Democrat.
A CNN story this week about the opening of the trial against New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez noted that “Democrats are eager to avoid the subject of Menendez’s bribery trial.”
The New York Times wrote an entire piece without identifying Senator Menendez as a Democrat from New Jersey, only later admitting that Menendez is a Democrat in updated version of the story two days later. AP and NBC both tweeted out a story that Bob Menendez is a Republican.
Trump’s Justice Department Lets Lois Lerner Off The Hook
IT’S NOT WHETHER OR NOT SOMEONE’S GUILTY, BUT CAN YOU PROVE IT?
HOW I LOATHE THIS ARROGANT BITCH
The Justice Department says it will not prosecute former IRS executive Lois Lerner for targeting conservative groups during the 2010 and 2012 elections.
“After this process, the Department determined that reopening the investigation would not be appropriate based on the available evidence,” Boyd wrote Texas Rep. Kevin Brady, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Illinois Rep. Peter Roskam, the chairman of the subcommittee on tax policy.
