Special Election Day

There are actually TWO special elections today… One you probably know about, one you probably don’t.
In Alabama, it’s a barn burner of a primary in the race to replace Jeff Sessions in the U.S. Senate.
McConnell’s handpicked boy Luther Strange, Judge Roy Moore, and Mo Brooks, who was Cruz’ campaign manager during last year’s presidential primary. Most of the quotes from Strange attacking him came during that period when he criticized Trump. If no candidate gets more than 50% of the vote, there will be a runoff in October. For reasons known only to himself, Trump is said to be backing Strange, probably at the behest of the sniveling, backstabbing Senate majority leader, as he tries to solidify his elitist cabal.
The Battle of Alabama: Mitch McConnell Influence Test Comes Up Tuesday

The question as to whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will maintain a rock solid grip on power over his Senate GOP conference for years to come will face voters in a deep red state in Alabama on Tuesday, as the McConnell-backed appointment-created incumbent Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) faces the serious possibility of losing his election before he even gets to a runoff.
It is worth noting that despite all his bluster about being pro-Trump, Strange and his campaign refused to appear on Breitbart News Saturday this weekend. He is refusing to appear in front of Trump-supporting audiences everywhere and has not been willing to publicly back the president and his agenda when it comes down to whether someone supports McConnell or supports Trump.

Alabama U.S. Senate GOP Primary Preview–What to Watch For

Moore has been a fixture in Alabama politics through the last three decades. He comes out of Etowah County, where he originally made a name for himself in the 1990s as a circuit court judge. At the time, he made waves by hanging a wooden plaque displaying the Ten Commandments behind his bench.
That display drew the ire of the American Civil Liberties Union, which filed suit in 1995. The ensuing controversy sealed Moore’s status as a national figure.
The attention Moore received from that suit catapulted him to win an election for chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.

Moore and Brooks have both been the targets of an attack ad campaign by the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC controlled by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and which has been decidedly pro-Luther Strange.
The ads have focused on comments Brooks made while supporting Trump’s opponent Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in last year’s GOP primary.

In recent days, the Senate Leadership Fund has also started targeting Roy Moore. One of their ads, titled “More for Moore,” suggests that Moore and his wife financially benefited from his Foundation for Moral Law, an organization Moore was a part of after being removed from the Alabama Supreme Court in 2003.

The primary getting far less attention is the one to replace useless slug Jason Chaffetz in Utah, another deep red state.
Race Tightens for Chaffetz’s House Seat a Day Before Primary

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) shocked the country last year when he said he planned to step down from his seat. Now those in his GOP-dominated district will hit the polls on Tuesday to determine the GOP candidate for the special election, who will probably have no problem winning next November.

Who will win tomorrow? The GOP establishment has backed a candidate “with a Democratic past” while two other candidates have received backing “from national GOP heavy-hitters.” Massive money donations from outside super PACs have also helped narrow the lead from the establishment pick.
John Curtis, the Provo mayor who has drawn support from the GOP’s more moderate flank, is the only candidate who didn’t vote for Trump, saying he had significant moral concerns about supporting the billionaire businessman.

Tanner Ainge, the son of Boston Celtics president Danny Ainge endorsed by Sarah Palin, said he voted for Trump because he always votes for the Republican candidate in presidential elections.

Chris Herrod, a former state lawmaker backed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, is the most vocal supporter of Trump. He said he did not think it was necessary for a special prosecutor to be appointed to look into possible ties between the president’s campaign and Russia.

Complaining about silent God

When asked about her no vote, Alaskan Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski said she wasn’t worried about it because she’s not up for re-election until 2022. I guess now we know where her priorities are.

Former DNC Chair DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ is the face of the biggest scandal the mainstream media refuses to cover. Does anyone doubt this story would be getting much more aggressive coverage if Wasserman Schultz was a Republican, or a member of the Trump administration?

Far-left political activist and filmmaker Michael Moore told Stephen Colbert, “I refuse to live in a country where Donald Trump is president, and I’m not leaving. So something’s got to change.” Wow. He sure thinks a lot of himself. !!

See, I Told You So

At the time of my last posting the vote on the “skinny repeal” had not been cast yet. As expected, at least by many of us, it stood absolutely no chance of passing. All it took to defeat it was three reliably-democrat votes by republicans. Good ol’ Johnny McC and his his stable of whores, Lisa “Lips’ Murkowski and Susie “the Lisp” Collins betrayed the country and relegated it to what will ultimately end up being a single payer system. The government just has to run the private insurers out of business, which it is in the process of doing. My Medicare supplemental insurance carrier sent me a letter today saying my monthly premiums are going up more than 10% in September. Thanks, jackasses.

Obamacare Repeal Collapses as Senate GOP Blocks Health Bill
Democrats immediately called for a bipartisan debate on how to fix Obamacare.
“We are not celebrating. We’re relieved,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York said after the vote. “Let’s turn the page and work together to improve our health care system.” He also said Democrats would be willing to help expedite bipartisan legislation and to advance Trump administration nominations.

Penalty for refusing to get health insurance remains intact
Opponents of President Barack Obama’s health care law who wanted to get rid of the penalty people were assessed for not having health insurance will have to wait longer for relief after the Senate early Friday defeated the GOP’s scaled-back version of legislation repealing the Affordable Care Act.
One of the main reasons GOP lawmakers had given in their quest to overturn Obamacare was that they want to lower premiums for people who buy individual health insurance policies, particularly constituents who get no help from the law’s tax credits. Some states are facing a second year of double-digit hikes.

Cryin’ Chuck Praises Liar John McCain for Speaking “Truth to Power” and Sticking Americans with O-Care
Senator McCain ran on repealing Obamacare.
He is a liar.
Senator McCain has cancer.
He was given a hero’s welcome when he returned.

NOW YOU KNOW WHY THE DEMOCRATS WERE APPLAUDING HIM
John McCain does not have Obamacare.
He has a special exemption for Senators and lawmakers from Obamacare.
He does not have to worry about the Arizona premiums which have doubled since Obamacare was implemented.
Last night Senator McCain, 48 Democrats and two fellow Republicans killed Obamacare repeal.
On Friday Cryin’ Chuck Schumer praised John McCain for sticking the American people with Obamacare.
It was a fitting ending to a treasonous career.

Schumer: McCain Ranks as Great as Ted Kennedy
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) today declared Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to have joined the ranks of late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) when it comes to greatness in Congress.
“And the credit goes to a lot of people, but at the top of the list are the three who showed amazing courage to resist the pressure and do what’s good for the country. John McCain at the top of the list,” Schumer, who hugged McCain after the vote, said. “He and I have been friends for a very long time, ever since the Gang of Eight which we put together.

Things You’ll Never See in the Mainstream Media

I haven’t watched an episode of Law & Order SVU in years. While channel surfing last night, I came across it last night for just about two minutes. The episode was called “Fake News.” They were confronting a blogger who said one man’s voice is as powerful as anybody else’s. They started to claim yeah, but the mainstream media tell the truth. Then I remembered why I quit watching this show. Every damn week was another example of bashing republicans and our values. [CtH: Ditto me.]

They would rather turn in their American Express gold cards than give Trump credit for anything. This is the same bunch that had to twist the truth beyond recognition by completely ignoring the facts about what a dickhead Obama was.

THEY WON’T BOTHER MENTIONING STUFF LIKE THIS:
Foxconn to build $10B plant in Wisconsin employing up to 13,000

In what’s being called the largest economic development project in state history, Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn plans to build a $10 billion plant in Wisconsin that would create liquid-crystal display panels and employ as many as 13,000 people.
The planned Wisconsin plant is expected to open in 2020 and be part of a 20 million-square-foot campus on at least 1,000 acres — a location Gov. Scott Walker has dubbed “Wisconn Valley.”
The state would offer $3 billion in economic incentives, Walker said.

WINNING! Walmart Unveils Manufacturing Plan to Create 1.5 MILLION New AMERICAN Jobs

While the media is obsessing over President Trump’s tweets and so-called Russia collusion, the U.S. economy is growing stronger and stronger. Today, Walmart announced it is aiming to create a whopping 1.5 million manufacturing jobs in the United States.

Walmart Inc. (WMT) met with government and business leaders in Washington on Wednesday to unveil a plan to spur growth in domestic manufacturing efforts that company executives say will create an estimated 1.5 million new jobs in the United States.
The meeting included a discussion with key individuals on both sides of the aisle about the biggest challenges the U.S. manufacturing sector currently faces. Using an analysis by the Boston Consulting Group and Walmart sourcing data, the company crafted a 10-point plan to “recapture” an estimated $300 billion in imported consumer goods, stoking job growth in the process.

Amazon seeks to fill 50,000 warehouse jobs, including hundreds in Kent

The e-commerce giant says next Wednesday it will welcome applicants at 10 of its warehouses, including the one in Kent, where it plans to hire hundreds. Amazon says it will make “thousands” of job offers on the spot.
The move underscores the continued rapid growth of Amazon’s fulfillment operations. The company has invested billions building new facilities to catch up with increasing customer demand for the products sold on its website, and to keep its promises of ever-quicker delivery.
Amazon says that most of the of the jobs available are full time and entail picking, packing and shipping customer orders. Some 10,000 of the opportunities on offer are part-time roles at sorting centers, smaller facilities that sift through packages shipped from Amazon’s warehouses and send them to local post offices.

How bad has Trump Derangement Syndrome gotten? MSNBC just reached #1 in prime time
And now, with outrage (or fauxrage in many cases) being the top menu item on the TV menu, MSNBC seems to be reaping the rewards. And if this isn’t a blip on the radar, it’s truly phenomenal. For the first time in the network’s entire history, they finished the week number one in total viewership in prime time, not just among the cable news channels, but for all cable networks.

[CtH: This is really depressing!]

SCREAMING FAR LEFT PROTEST MOB Disrupts US Senate Vote on Obamacare

When the vote was announced far left protesters began screaming loudly, “Kill the Bill, Don’t Kill Us!”  It took the Sergeant of Arms and federal officers SEVERAL MINUTES to remove the far left mob.  This was unprecedented.

A long history of violence among U.S. liberals
Recently on HBO’s Real Time, Bill Maher had this to say about the attack on Republican legislators: “We would never really think this would happen on the left. We think of the right as the people who pick up guns and do crazy things like this.”
And that’s just what they think. Liberals are peaceful and conservatives are violent. Even those who take pride in their political incorrectness repeat it. But you don’t have to be an American historian to know how little it holds up to the facts.

Trump Mocks ‘Young’ Protester: ‘Going Home To Mommy’
During Trump’s remarks at the Ohio rally — a state he won during the election — a protester stood up in the crowd with a large Soviet flag, and the crowd began pointing to the protester.
“If you don’t point no one’s gonna even know he’s here,” Trump mocked. “Weak voice. Weak voice.”
An attendee behind the protester ripped the flag out of his hands and the protester was dragged out of the event by police.
“Boy, he’s a young one, he’s going back home to mommy,” Trump said as the crowd cheered and laughed. “Boy, he’s in trouble. He’s in trouble.”

Danger, Will Robinson, Danger!

I have a real bad feeling about this. There dwells within my breast a real skepticism any time democrats agree with ANYTHING the president does. They convinced George H.W. Bush that David Souter was a constitutionalist judge and he was confirmed handily. SURPRISE! He turned out to be just another liberal hack. As Ann Coulter once said: ‘Why is it NO judge appointed by a democrat has ever disappointed them?’ Because they have a huge roster of leftist judges perfectly willing to replace the rule of law with their own personal opinion.

President Trump has chosen Christopher Wray to be the next FBI Director.
Trump FBI Pick Poised For Confirmation
Christopher Wray impresses even Democratic senators
Christopher Wray, President Trump’s nominee to replace James Comey as FBI director, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee at his confirmation hearing on Wednesday. He performed so well that key Democratic members of the committee such as Senator Dianne Feinstein said they were impressed and were inclined to vote for his confirmation. Senator Al Franken, a chronic skeptic of anything coming from the Trump administration, said to the nominee, “I think you had a good hearing today, and I wish you luck.”

The Day After Comey’s Testimony

My email is chock full of summaries and commentaries. I’ll try to condense it down to the best few bits.

2017_06 08 Comey testimony by Branco

THE BIG PICTURE: Trump’s distrust of Comey was vindicated by what we now know about Comey.

  • Comey confirmed, again, that even as of his last day in office, Donald Trump was not personally the subject of FBI investigation, neither criminal nor counter-intelligence.
    • Despite media claims otherwise, this fact was not deemed worthy of public disclosure by Comey. IOW, he was happy to let Trump twist in the winds of misleading and false media claims.
  • Comey stated that a key New York Times report asserting Trump campaign collusion was substantively false.
    • Much of the Democrat and media frenzy over the past several months was based on this article.
  • Trump didn’t try to impede the Russia investigation.
    • In fact, he actually encouraged Comey to find out and expose whether any of Trump’s campaign “satellites” engaged in wrongdoing.
  • Comey arranged for a friend of his to leak a memo of his conversation with Trump about Michael Flynn to the NY Times.
    • That memo apparently has not even been given to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
    • The leaking of this memo may put Comey himself in legal jeopardy.
  • Comey admitted that then Attorney General Loretta Lynch pressured him to downplay the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server to assist Clinton’s election efforts.
    • Comey admitted that he succumbed to Lynch’s pressure.
    • This should result in both a re-opened investigation of Hillary’s server and also a new investigation of Lynch.

SUMMARY: The so-called “resistance” is based totally on lies. It is and always has been nothing more than an attempt to undermine Trump’s ability to govern. It and not Trump’s presidency are the true threat to our electoral and representative system.

What’s Really Important

There is a lot going on in the state of world affairs, to be sure. Terrorists in London, the Comey hearings, the GA-6th debate, etc. While these may be important, they pale in comparison to an upcoming event Friday morning. I booked a guided fishing trip months ago with a friend, his son, and my R.J. I had no idea which lake we were going to and he won’t answer his cell phone. The old lady at the bait shop was of little help when I called, she only said: ‘Where do you want to go?’ Walworth County, Wisconsin, has numerous lakes and I assumed he would decide. Apparently not. I chose Lake Delavan and she gave me directions to one of the three boat launches on the lake. I’m getting a little obsessive, but I don’t want anything to go wrong since my grandson has looked forward to this for months. Fishing with him is one of the few real joys in my life anymore.

Now onto the crap.

DC Swamp Goes Crazy for James Comey Hearing

HE WILL ADROITLY TIPTOE AROUND THE FACTS TO AVOID INCRIMINATING HIMSELF. AT THE END OF THE DAY THE MEDIA, THIRSTING FOR BLOOD, WILL BE SORELY DISAPPOINTED.

The Washington establishment and media elite has gone into a full-blown craze over a Senate hearing on Thursday featuring fired FBI Director James Comey.

And while the media continued to hype the hearing, some began expressing worry the hearing would not live up to the hype.

The Senate Intelligence Committee hearing is slated to begin at 10 a.m. eastern and begin with opening statements from the chairman and vice chairman of the committee. Comey will then deliver an opening statement, and senators will have the opportunity to question Comey, with multiple rounds of questions expected. The hearing is expected to last hours. The closed hearing is scheduled at 1 p.m. eastern.

Sessions Is Said to Have Offered to Resign

The situation between Mr. Sessions and Mr. Trump has grown so tense that the attorney general told Mr. Trump in recent weeks that he needed the freedom to do his job and that he could resign if that was what was wanted, according to the two people who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal White House matters. Mr. Trump did not take him up on the offer.

A spokesman for Mr. Sessions declined to comment. A White House spokeswoman did not respond to an email seeking comment.

SESSIONS OFFERED HIS RESIGNATION, TRUMP REFUSED IT. TRUMP IS RIGHT

Jeff Sessions Got Played by Democrats When He Recused Himself from Russian Witch Hunt

Sessions made the announcement in March that he would recuse himself from the Russian investigation — in an effort to appease liberal Democrats.

SESSIONS COULD COMMIT HARA KIRI ON THE SOUTH LAWN AND THE DEMOCRATS WOULD STILL BE UNHAPPY.

And the Russian conspiracy continues to make headlines in the liberal media day after day.

Trump is right to be angry.

ABC reported: “As the White House braces for former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Thursday, sources tell ABC News the relationship between President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions has become so tense that Sessions at one point recently even suggested he could resign.

Trump’s anger over the recusal has not diminished with time. Two sources close to the president say he has lashed out repeatedly at the attorney general in private meetings, blaming the recusal for the expansion of the Russia investigation, now overseen by Special Counsel and former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

Watch Jon Ossoff Lose The Entire Special Election Debate In Less Than Four Minutes

As part of the debate format, the candidates were given the opportunity to ask each other questions. Handel turned to Ossoff and asked him a question he couldn’t answer: Who he was going to vote for in the special election. As someone who lives outside the district, Ossoff is unable to cast a vote for himself. It went downhill from there for Ossoff.

They Just Won’t Go Away: Michelle Obama Trashes Trump at Apple Conference

The last time we saw Michelle Obama, she was flaunting her poor fashion sense in Italy.  This week the former First Lady was a surprise guest at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in California.  She delivered a fireside chat where she trashed President Trump over global warming junk science and his temporary travel ban from failed Islamist states.

Michelle Obama: “I think my message earlier was, you know, think about that higher purpose. Because we are at a time in this country when we need problem solvers out there who are committed who believe in this country who believe in the value of diversity and believe in, you know, the value of immigrants, and believe that global warming is real.”

Ugh.  Won’t these people please just go away.  You’ve done enough damage Michelle for one lifetime.  Now shoo.

Gorsuch confirmed 54-45

2017_04 Gorsuch and Reid

Three Democrats in the United States Senate — Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Heidi Heitcamp (N.D.) and Joe Manchin (W.V.) — joined with Republicans in voting to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

One Republican senator, Johnny Isakson (Ga.), did not vote because, as his office explained in a statement, he was “in Georgia today recovering from two back surgeries.”

Isakson made it clear that he supported Gorsuch and would have voted for him had he been in Washington today.
