The Way It Is

In keeping with my policy, I’m not posting any links to the investigations going on in Congress because there’s really no point. We’ve found what we all knew to be true, that Obama didn’t have a presidential administration, but a criminal enterprise. Using phony information to spy on Trump people, collusion between the White House, FBI, and DOJ to make sure Hillary would never be charged with anything; Lynch announcing she’d abide by whatever decision Comey came to when she was told months earlier what the outcome of the sham investigation would be. Felonies piled on felonies. It’s laughable to think that any investigation will result in any indictments. Even if they were, you’d never get a judge or jury in DC to convict a Democrat. So it’s all bullcrap. Enough said.

DC ‘Made Men’ Like James Clapper Don’t Get Charged For Committing Open Perjury

Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper is about to celebrate one of the most important anniversaries of his life. March 13th will be the fifth anniversary of his commission of open perjury before the Senate Intelligence Committee. More importantly, it also happens to be when the statute of limitations runs out — closing any possibility of prosecution for Clapper

Black racists enraged by Malia Obama’s white boyfriend

Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has a boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia’s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white.

Schumer’s shutdown reveals: Democrats will destroy America just to spite Trump
The Schumer shutdown has revealed the totality of the Democrats’ agenda: animosity and amnesty.

When President Trump set out to deliver historic tax cuts for the American people, Democrats sat on their hands, rather than participating in the legislative process.

We already knew the Washington Democrats hated Trump. Now we know they oppose not just the president, but American government, the American people and even the very concept of American citizenship as well.

They call Americans “deplorables” and illegal immigrants “Dreamers.” That tells you everything you need to know about the Democrats’ upside-down world view.

SAG Awards Host Can’t Resist Taking A Shot At Melania Minutes Into The Show

“There has never been a host for this awards show,” Bell said. “First time. First person. First lady. I honestly never thought I would grow up to be the first lady, but you know what, I kind of like it.”

“I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyberbullying because I have yet to see any progress on that problem quite yet,” Bell joked early in her speech.

Trump Rejects NBC’s Request for Pre-Super Bowl Interview

CAN’T SAY I BLAME HIM. IT WOULD NOT BE SO MUCH AN INTERVIEW AS AN INTERROGATION. NOT AT ALL LIKE THE HUGGING AND CARESSING OBAMA WAS ALWAYS TREATED TO.

The White House has at present, according to a person familiar with the matter, indicated to NBC News that President Donald Trump will not take part in a recent Super Bowl ritual: a pre-game interview between the commander-in-chief and the news unit of the network hosting the game.

If Trump had agreed to the interview, he probably would have been grilled about his opposition to NFL players protesting when the National Anthem is played before games, as well as about his political policies, Variety says.

When MRC analyzed all evening news coverage of the President in 2017, we found that 87.8 percent of Trump’s coverage on the NBC Nightly News was negative, compared to a mere 12.2 percent that was positive.

Sec. Zinke Will Spend The Government Shutdown Ensuring The WWII Memorial, National Parks, Stay Open

No Barrycades this time. Just one more demonstration of how Obama had no problem hurting people for his political agenda.

In the first hours of the government shutdown, Secretary Zinke was making plans for how to keep America’s public parks open. In the early hours of Saturday morning, Zinke met with public affairs and maintenance staff to run through a plan to keep memorials on the National Mall open. He then spoke with garbagemen who will be picking up trash on the Mall one last time before the city of D.C. takes over for them.

Zinke then got into his car and drove to the WWII memorial to greet visitors and hand out maps and helped with directions. “I spent the morning walking around, giving brochures out,” Zinke said. “I got a lot of thanks from both sides of the aisle. We will not weaponize our public lands.”

Trump Campaign Slams Democrats As ‘Complicit’ In Murders By Illegal Aliens In Explosive New Ad

President Trump’s re-election campaign released a new ad on Saturday slamming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats as “complicit” in future murders committed by illegal immigrants.

The ad featured Luis Bracamontes, an illegal immigrant on trial for killing two police officers who told a judge he only wished he “had killed more of the mother******s.”

Dem street fighting meets match in Trump

For years, Democrats have successfully used government shutdowns to slap wimpy Republicans around and paint them as cold, ineffectual cream puffs who don’t care about the regular people who depend on a functioning government.

Remember the political theater of the 2013 government shutdown, when veterans and little kids were barricaded out of the national monuments and Nancy Pelosi was calling the Republicans legislative arsonists?

That’s not going to work with the bad hombre in the White House — he was born to brawl.

Democrats did their best to fill the news cycle with distracting toxicity leading up to the shutdown we’re in, but it didn’t take. People see it for what it is. Disgraceful political opportunism. Democratic senators don’t oppose much of the spending bill at all, and they pretended there was moral urgency with DACA.

[CtH: Among the MOST pathetic examples was CNN warning us that we could be hit by an UNDETECTED asteroid!  Cuz, you know, if it was detected, we’d be able to do something about it.  Oh wait.   No we couldn’t.  It would still hit us.  We’d just know about it a little sooner.]

Weaponizing the Shutdown 

If a government shuts down in the forest and nobody hears it, that’s the sound of liberty dying. The so-called shutdown is, as noted last week, mostly baloney: Eighty-three percent of the supposedly defunded government is carrying on as usual, impervious to whatever restraints the people’s representatives might wish to impose, and the 800,000 soi-disant “non-essential” workers have been assured that, as soon as the government is once again lawfully funded, they will be paid in full for all the days they’ve had at home.

Trump Calls for ‘Nuclear Option’ if Democrats Continue Shutdown

By invoking the “nuclear option,” Senate Republicans would change the rules of the Senate so that it would only take a 51-vote majority to pass a bill and it would no longer be required to get 60 votes to end debate on it.

“The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked,” Trump said in the tweet. “If the stalemate continues, Republicans should to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s”

Making California Mexico Again

“No barriers between California and Mexico” for leftist Democrats.

In this view, Mexicans who violate U.S. immigration law are only entering their own country and not illegal in any sense. They are therefore entitled to education, medical care, drivers’ licenses, welfare, and in-state college tuition. False-documented illegals also vote in federal, state and local elections, the imported electorate of California’s ruling class Democrats. California secretary of state Alex Padilla conveniently refuses to reveal voter information and will not cooperate with federal probes of voter fraud.

[CtH: Funny thing how it doesn’t work the other way.  Americans who enter Mexico illegally go to jail.]

Trump HHS Announces “New Conscience and Religious Freedom Division”
HHS moves from “pro-life antagonist to advocate.”

During his presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump repeatedly spoke of his intent to support life should he be elected. This week he took another huge step in fulfilling this promise with his HHS’s announcement of a new conscience and religious freedom division.

Additionally, the HHS has announced that it will roll back another Obama era policy: HHS will no longer freeze out states that seek to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. Last year, the president signed a bill allowing states to defund Planned Parenthood.

Former Military Lawyers: Chelsea Manning Subject To Prosecution For Running For Office

While Manning’s felony conviction does not appear to automatically disqualify a run for office, his active-duty status presents a much more troubling issue. Such a status, in other words, has enormous implications for engaging in any kind of political activity, especially a Senate run.

That paragraph is punitive and violation of it subjects her to courts-martial for violation of a lawful order or regulation under Article 92,” Brenner-Beck told TheDCNF. “Her activities campaigning for herself and fundraising for herself may also violate other provisions of the DoD Directive, themselves separately punishable under the UCMJ, art. 92.”

On SNL, it dawns on the left that its tantrum over Trump is falling flat

I watched the opening segment last night, which was a mirthless five-minute take attempting to convince us President Trump was dumb. Later on in the program, at the half-hour mark, the second political skit, led by actress and guest host Jessica Chastain was more interesting.

Using the format of a cheesy game show with a panel of three contestants, Chastain asked her contenders in the five-minute segment whether this or that action of President Trump’s “matters anymore.”

The skit moves on to ever more outrageous scenarios, none of which “matter anymore” to highlight that the public doesn’t give a darn about the media’s frenzy at President Trump’s tweets or its slambook-style leaks of his offhand supposed remarks. In the course of the drama, Chastain gets more and more wound up at how Trump gets away with whatever it is the left says he gets away with and near the end of the skit swigs a booze bottle to drown her exasperated sorrows as the contestants try to comfort her.

House-Passed Gov’t Funding Bill Fails In Senate Triggering Gov’t Shutdown

The Senate failed to pass a cloture vote on a House-passed continuing resolution late Friday evening, just before government funding levels were set to expire.

Democrats withheld their votes over a lack of an agreement on a legislative fix to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — the Obama-era initiative that extended temporary legal status to foreign nationals who illegally entered the country as minors — leaving GOP leadership short of the 60 votes needed to send the measure to the president’s desk.

Crazy Pelosi Brags About Protecting DREAMERS After Senate Democrats Block Funding in Favor of Illegal Aliens

The House budget resolution failed a cloture vote in the Senate on a largely party line vote, 50 to 49.

Tonight, on the eve of the first anniversary of his inauguration, President Trump earned an ‘F’ for failure in leadership.

“President Trump and Congressional Republicans’ obsession with passing a tax scam to benefit the wealthiest and corporations has blinded them to their responsibilities to the American people. Despite controlling the House, Senate and White House, the Republicans are so incompetent, so negligent that they couldn’t get it together to keep government open.

Flashback to when Obama weaponized 2013 government shutdown

High profile national monuments and parks were “Barrycaded” so that TV cameras could show veterans and others being turned away.

“I’ve been through some of these before,” he said. “The Democrats are opposing a bill that they don’t oppose! … They don’t oppose anything in the bill, but they are opposing the bill.”

“I just want to let everybody know,” he said about the potential government shutdown:

“We do not want this, we do not want a shutdown, but if Mr. Schumer insists on it, he is in a position to force this on the American people.”

Jim Acosta of CNN embarrassed himself by suggesting Republicans could avoid a shutdown because they control the House, Senate and Presidency. He knew, of course, that 60 votes are needed in the Senate.

Sanders Denies Attacking Republicans for Shutdown in 2013, Isn’t Corrected by MSNBC

Associated Press, NYT Torpedo Democratic Narrative On Government Shutdown

Democrats have a) have longed called government shutdowns irresponsible, directing their attacks at Republicans; b) they’ve said that tying immigration to budgetary matters is just an exercise in chaos. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that in 2013 during the debt ceiling negotiations. The latter is the audible here. Democrats want a DACA deal first. It’s dealing with greedy, spoiled children when it comes to the Democrats. They’re getting everything they want.

The answer is simple: Their very own government shutdown.”

And the Winner Is…

Trump broke the internet…

Ever the provocateur, the president yesterday released his much-anticipated list of “Fake News Award” winners. They were posted on GOP.com and the site summarily crashed from the surge of traffic. The media’s reaction was, as always, predictable. Rather than keep you in suspense, here’s the list and the ensuing fallout:

2017 Fake News Awards – The full list
1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.

2. ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.

3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.

4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.

5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.

6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.

7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”

8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.

9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.

10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.

11. And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!

Jim Acosta Fires Back At POTUS Trump After CNN Wins FOUR FAKE NEWS AWARDS

Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta was far from pleased after President Trump bestowed CNN with four “Fake News” awards Wednesday evening. Acosta, who was speaking on a panel organized by Freedom of Press, responded to the news, stating “I would say having been called fake news myself, the president is the king of fake news.”

Earlier in the discussion, Acosta defended against criticism for asking the President if he was a racist in relation to his “sh*thole” remarks.

“God damn it, I’ll say it out loud … it is our right to ask if the president is a racist,” Acosta blurted out.

2017: The Year the News Media Went to War Against a President

■ The Trump presidency was the biggest story of the year, accounting for one out of every three minutes of evening news airtime — nearly 100 hours in total.

■ The tone of coverage has been incessantly hostile, especially for a new President in his honeymoon year: 90% negative, vs. just 10% positive (These percentages do not include neutral statements).

■ More than two-fifths of evening news coverage of the President (43%) focused on controversies, not policies, with the Russia investigation alone accounting for one-fifth of all Trump coverage (1,234 minutes).

■ Despite their massive coverage of Russia, the networks had almost no airtime for questions about how the investigation began, or whether special counsel Robert Mueller’s current investigation is biased.

Report: Highest-ever political bias in media, most can’t name ‘objective news source’

Americans see more political bias in news than ever, and nearly seven-in-10 blame media owners for influencing the ways stories are reported, according to the latest failing report card on the nation’s news business.

According to “American Views: Trust, Media and Democracy,” a new report from Gallup and the Knight Foundation, the percentage of Americans who see a great deal of political bias in stories has nearly doubled since 1989.

10 of the Dumbest Questions Reporters Asked During Trump’s Health Press Conference

White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson told reporters on Tuesday that President Trump is in “excellent” health and has “no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever.” But that didn’t stop the press corps from asking a lot of really stupid questions. Here’s a sampling.

1. One reporter asked the White House physician how Trump can become as fit as Obama — who struggled to kick a smoking habit. He then proceeded to whine that the press office doesn’t keep a tally of how much time Trump spends on the golf course and asked if Jackson could help them with that.

Leftist Toilet Mouths Condemn Trump as They Corrupt Nation

Let’s be clear: Leftists certainly object to the substance of Trump’s comments, that we shouldn’t continually absorb poor, unskilled, often functionally illiterate and unassimilable people from Third World nations. But they also object to his alleged style, labeling as obscene the use of s***hole (toilet) to describe such places. So to show us how bad such language is, the Crude News Network (CNN), for example, used it at least 36 times on Thursday. It’s sort of like inveighing against animal abuse and then bludgeoning dozens of dogs to death on air to prove your point.

[CtH: This reminds me of something I’ve noticed often in movie and t.v. outtakes. On Christian movie sets, there are no bleeped out (or non-bleeped out) cuss words when people mess up a line. On mainstream movie and t.v. sets, almost everybody seems to punctuate a goof with “f***” or “sh**.”]

Dems Think 800,000 Illegal Immigrants Are Worth Forcing Active Military To Go Without Pay

Congress has three days to strike a deal to keep the government funded through October. If members fail to come to an agreement by Jan. 19, all “non-essential” government employees and active U.S. Military personnel will be working with out pay (including troops currently deployed). Funding for agencies like federal museums or national parks will also be cut off.

Congressional Democrats are apparently content with allowing military and law enforcement personnel to go without pay to secure protections and benefits for illegal immigrants and members of their extended families.

Red-State Democrats Gamble
Importantly, three Democratic officials in states that went heavily for Trump in 2016 — Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill — were all absent. Sens. McCaskill and Manchin said they were not invited to the White House event.

Normally, the lawmakers who represent states that voted for the other party’s presidential nominee are the most bipartisan — even if it’s just to listen. Early on, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Sen. Donnelly hopped on a plane with Trump. But now that they’re in the heat of fundraising, they do not want any part of it.

Democrats Block 2018 Budget, Gain Another Month to Push Amnesty
Late Tuesday, the GOP gave up on 2018 budget talks and drafted a new temporary budget plan, dubbed a Continuing Resolution, which would keep the government open for another month until February 16. That date will mark almost five months after the 2018 budget was slated to begin October 1.

If the CR passes the House and Senate, the GOP and the Democrats will get another month to develop a 2018 budget while Democrats gain another month to wear down GOP and Trump opposition to their amnesty-plus plan.

Don’t fall for Operation Demoralize 2018

The key to Democrat victory in November 2018 is to keep Republican voters home.

WHEN THE DEMOCRATS FLIPPED A REPUBLICAN SEAT IN WISCONSIN LAST WEEK. THE DEMOCRAT TURNOUT WAS 35%… THE REPUBLICAN TURNOUT WAS 12%.

I would not be surprised to see that strategy used more generally against Trump supporting Republicans in the House. And it could be effective. Someone who normally would vote Republican but stays home is as good as a vote for Democrats.

So expect there to be a sustained effort to demoralize Republican voters, Trump supporters, and independents who are willing to vote Republican. That’s part of the reason Democrats and the media have shifted to round-the-clock accusations of racism against Trump.  I have written about this phenomenon in the past. I call it Operation Demoralize.

Trump schools GOP Congress to play hardball

Instead of rolling over for Democrats and virtuously claiming they’ve “reached across the aisle,” as they always have done, Republicans are now playing hardball. They’ve maneuvered to put entitlements and swing state-sensitive tax cuts on the line as bargaining chips to avoid a government shutdown. In doing this, they have just laid out a plan to beat the Democrats at their own game.

Do Democrats really want to face the 18 million parents whose nine million children use the CHIP program to explain that all that could come to an end because of the Democratic Party’s higher priority of amnestying 800,000 DREAMers? Do they really want to face the New England voters in the medical device industry, which has been singled out for punitive Obamacare taxes, or explain themselves to all the union workers set to pay massive Obamacare “Cadillac” taxes just for the “privilege” of having good health care insurance?

Voters don’t actually want Oprah to run for president

“Oprah’s strong standing among Democrats does not translate to a clear interest in her launching a presidential campaign,” said Kyle Dropp, co-founder and chief research officer of Morning Consult. “While 77 percent of Democrats have a favorable opinion of Oprah, only 38 percent say she should run in 2020.”

The “Oprah 2020” rumors were sparked earlier this month following her emotional speech at the Globes, in which she touched upon the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements sweeping the nation recently.

Trump Honors Civil Rights Icon Barbara Jordan ‘Who Called for End to Chain Migration’

“As Chairman of the U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform—now called the Jordan Commission in her honor—she stood up to special interests determined to profit politically and financially from our broken immigration system. She remained steadfast in promoting common-sense reforms that would better protect the rights and needs of Americans,” the presidential message stated.

Trump also noted that Jordan “called for an end to chain migration, which has allowed millions upon millions of low-skilled foreign nationals to compete for opportunities and resources against our most vulnerable American citizens—many of whom come from African-American and Hispanic-American communities.”

Liberals Furious NHL Picked Trump-Supporter Kid Rock to Perform at All-Star Game

But, as Bucholtz revealed, a list of folks on Twitter were incensed that Rock was chosen to perform at the game; because the Detroit-based singer is a well-known supporter of President Donald Trump and a Republican booster. Kid Rock even briefly contemplated running for the U.S. Senate from Michigan.

But, liberal members of the media attacked the NHL on Twitter calling Kid Rock a “racist” and slamming the league for “going political” with the choice:

A federal judge in Alabama has thrown out a lawsuit against the state’s voter ID law, finding that the law doesn’t prevent anyone from voting because “nearly the entire population of registered voters in Alabama already possess a photo ID that can be used for voting.”

For those who don’t, obtaining a qualifying ID can be done “with little to no effort and no cost.”

Bits and Pieces

2017 Tax reform toon by Branco

ECONOMY: The Bureau of Labor Statistics released its newest jobs report on Friday, and the data clearly show, under the pro-business policies implemented by the Trump administration, low-income and working-class families are enjoying significant economic gains not experienced in nearly 20 years.

TAX OVERHAUL: Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest private employer, announced today that it will raise its starting hourly wage, give bonuses to all eligible full and part-time associates, and expand its parental leave policyall in response to last month’s tax overhaul.

2020 ELECTIONS: The Senate map is really tough for Democrats, with 26 Democratic seats in play next year (including a newly opened seat in Minnesota after Al Franken announced his intention to retire) as compared to just eight Republican ones. Moreover, five of the Democratic-held seats — the ones in West Virginia, North Dakota, Montana, Missouri and Indiana — are in states that President Trump won by 18 percentage points or more.

PRO-LIFE: Speaker Paul Ryan will headline the 45th March for Life, which is taking place on January 19th.  Paul Ryan has spoken at the annual event before, but this will be his first time coming as Speaker of the House.

RUSSIARUSSIARUSSIA: The salacious and FAKE anti-Trump dossier that Hillary paid for was used to gain approval from a secret court to monitor members of Trump’s team. There will be more information in the coming week.

RAAACISM: Clarence Thomas talks about being a black conservative in modern society.  He says faith gives him “the strength to do what I have to do every day, to assert the independence, to be willing to take the beatings, the criticism, the unfairness.” When he attends daily mass, he says, it helps him do his “job, a secular job, in the right way and for the right reasons.” It reminds him that his work has nothing to do with what is said about him, but is rather about doing what he took an oath to do.

As Cold As My Ex-Wife’s Heart

Well, maybe not THAT cold, but pretty damn cold. This is the third day if single digit temperatures. Still, we’ve only had a smidgen of snow, nothing like they were hit with on the east coast. Why do they get so much snow every year? Because they deserve it for voting democrat.

WHY THE HELL WON’T HE JUST GO AWAY?
Barack Obama to Prince Harry: Hashtags Don’t Bring About Change
Former President Barack Obama told Britain’s Prince Harry in a BBC 4 interview that hashtags alone do not bring about social change.
The Obama administration was notorious for using hashtags in lieu of actual diplomacy or military action to address urgent problems.
The strategy reached its zenith (or nadir) in 2014, when First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted “#BringBackOurGirls” in response to the mass abduction of Nigerian schoolgirls by the terrorist group Boko Haram.

Barry and Harry: Politicized Prince ‘Interviews’ Obama for BBC as Former U.S. Prez Attacks ‘Corroding Civil Discourse’ on Social Media
Former US President Barack Obama made a barely veiled attack on President Trump in a BBC Radio interview conducted by British Royal Prince Harry, apparently politicising the otherwise neutral Royal Family by involving them in Domestic U.S. politics.
Pretty sure this is what Obama *meant* to say…

‘Not Welcome’: London’s Muslim Mayor Repeats Calls to Cancel Trump Visit
Stating he had “previously called on Theresa May to cancel her ill-judged offer of a state visit to President Trump”, the mayor made clear he feels a visit by President Trump would be against the “interests and security of Londoners”. Khan said :”It is clear that any official visit here would not be welcomed.”

Bill de Blasio Compares Himself to Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Mahatma Gandhi

[CtH: Wow, and they say Trump has a big ego?!]

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says he is destined for greatness—so much so that he is comparing himself to Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Mahatma Gandhi.

Democratic insiders, however, bristle at the thought of de Blasio running for nationwide office or taking the national stage, saying that he is full of himself and does not command respect from his colleagues.

“It’s laughable to think that the response to Trump is going to come from a progressive mayor whom progressives don’t rally around and mayors don’t respect,” said one high-placed Democratic operative.

HEIR APPARENT: DeBlasio Chooses Bernie To Swear Him In For Mayor

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio will be sworn in for his second term by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, City Hall revealed Wednesday.

De Blasio’s choice is surprising given his enthusiastic support of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and his long maintained ties to the Clinton family. These ties were on full display during his first swearing in presided over by former President Bill Clinton, who de Blasio served under in the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

TRUMP EFFECT: Kennedy Center Honors Ratings Crash to All-Time Low After President Boycotts Ceremony
OBAMA NEVER MISSED ONE OF THESE CIRCLE JERKS WHERE THE GLITTERATI WOULD FAWN OVER HIM. TRUMP DIDN’T NEED THIS CHARADE. GOOD ON HIM.

President Donald Trump announced earlier this year he would not attend the December 3 awards ceremony, nor hold a White House reception, after several liberals being honored, including Norman Lear, said they would boycott the White House reception for the honorees. It was the most public snub of a president by a Kennedy Center honoree since Paul McCartney canceled on George W. Bush, rescheduling his award when Barack Obama was president.

The American people responded to the Trump-hating liberals by not watching the Kennedy Center Honors broadcast.  CBS’ broadcast of Kennedy Center Honors clocked its lowest ratings result in people-meter history, dating back to 1987.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton Retain Most Admired Titles

•Barack Obama edges out Donald Trump as most admired man
•Hillary Clinton wins narrow victory over Michelle Obama
•Clinton has won the past 16 years; Obama the past 10

The 2017 survey marks the 16th consecutive year Clinton has been the most admired woman. She has held the title 22 times in total, more than anyone else. Eleanor Roosevelt is second with 13 wins. Obama has now been named the most admired man 10 times, trailing only Dwight Eisenhower, who earned the distinction 12 times.http://news.gallup.com/poll/224672/barack-obama-hillary-clinton-retain-admired-titles.aspx

Democratic Appointees Reluctant To Give Trump More Judgeships To Fill
THE DEMOCRATS HAVE COMPLETELY POLITICIZED THE JUDICIARY.

[CtH: If their appointees weren’t using their positions to force unlegislated laws on us, this wouldn’t be an issue.]

Two Democratic appointees to federal appeals courts expressed reluctance to retire during President Donald Trump’s administration, claiming the president has not fielded impressive judicial nominees.

Two unnamed judges told BuzzFeed News that they have concerns about the temperament of Trump’s judicial candidates, despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of his nominees attained approving reviews from legal trade associations.

One circuit judge claimed Trump’s nominees lack the qualifications necessary for judicial service.

Democrats Still Can’t Bring in the Cash They Desperately Need
The Democratic National Committee had $6.3 million in the bank on Dec. 1, while the Republican National Committee had six times as much, at $40 million, according to documents the parties filed with the Federal Election Commission. In November, the DNC posted its worst fundraising amount for the month in a decade.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a former DNC chairman who hosted a party fundraiser at his home Dec. 14, is among the party stalwarts stepping in to try to reverse the course. “I have heard a lot of donors say they need to take a break,” said Mr. McAuliffe. “The party’s job is to convince them they can’t.”

Kathy Griffin Can’t Stop Blaming Trump For Her Own Career-Ending Move

Kathy Griffin continued to blame President Donald Trump for her current career status and said she can’t tour the United States “without getting shot.”
Shortly after pictures of the shoot surfaced, she issued an apology for taking things too far, only to retract that apology a few months later.

“They were thrilled to have someone come over and make fun of Trump,” Griffin explained. “I wish I could tour in the U.S. without getting shot–I know I can’t. I was in the middle of a 50-city tour when the tweet happened. It was canceled in 24 hours.”

[CtH: And how many conservatives have had to cancel because leftists demanded they not be allowed to appear?]

All eyes on Sen. Hatch as he weighs reelection bid
The political spotlight is shifting to longtime Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) as he considers whether to run for reelection in 2018. They have showered praise on the powerful Senate Finance Committee chairman for helping to shepherd the GOP’s tax overhaul through the upper chamber.

Much of the intrigue surrounding Hatch’s decision is centered on Mitt Romney, who reportedly plans to run for the seat if Hatch retires. If Hatch retires, Romney would become the immediate front-runner and would be expected to clear the field for the seat.

Trump and Romney have had a contentious relationship over the years. Romney waged a public campaign to stop Trump’s nomination in 2016. In one speech, he called Trump a “phony” and a “fraud.”  More recently, Romney denounced failed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore hours after Trump endorsed him.

Asked earlier this month whether he was trying to prevent Romney from filling Hatch’s seat, Trump dodged the question.  “He’s a good man. Mitt’s a good man,” he said.

New Jerusalem Train Station To Be Named After President Trump

Israel will name a new train station after President Trump announced the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv will move to Jerusalem
The nation’s transportation minister Israel Katz said Wednesday that the station, if approved and built, will be a thank you to Trump for his “courageous and historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel.”

The train station would sit in close proximity to the Western Wall, a holy site for worshipers of Judaism and a tourist attraction that brings in roughly 11 million visitors a year.

Vanity Fair Sparks Liberal Meltdown After Calling for Hillary Clinton to Take Up Knitting

The outlet published a video on its Twitter page, featuring a number of millennials offering recommendations to Clinton — who has spent much of 2017 relitigating the 2016 election — to stay away from politics and to do something else.

While the video was no doubt supposed to be a light, comedic ribbing — with Vanity Fair an unlikely backer for President Trump — and expressing in a light-hearted form the sentiment among many Democrats that Clinton may be a drag on the party in 2018 and 2020, Clinton-backers were not impressed.

As with most criticisms of Clinton, even those that come from women, the sexism card was quickly thrown down by those offended by the jokey video.

Actress Patricia Arquette requested that the outlet “STOP TELLING WOMEN WHAT THE F-CK THEY SHOULD DO OR CAN DO. “

ISIS CRUSHED Since Donald Trump Took Office – The Numbers
The massive gains come after years of “onerous” rules, when critics say the Obama administration “micromanaged” the war and shunned a more intensive air strategy that could have ended the conflict much sooner.

The rules of engagement under the Obama administration were onerous. I mean what are we doing having individual target determination being conducted in the White House, which in some cases adds weeks and weeks,” said retired Air Force Lt. Gen. David Deptula, the former head of U.S. Air Force intelligence. “The limitations that were put on actually resulted in greater civilian casualties.”

James Woods Trolls Dems, Sheila Jackson Lee After She Stole Other Passenger’s United Airlines Seat

As previously reported, despite United Airlines apologizing to the woman who purchased a first class ticket aboard one of their flights, only to be re-seated because Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee wanted to sit first class, the race-baiting Congresswoman believes no apology was owed.
Shortly after this apology and a $500 credit were issued by United, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee went on a Twitter tirade where she claimed that the entire incident is just about race, naturally.

James Woods tweeted out the picture of Sheila Jackson Lee sitting in the stolen first class seat, talking on her cell phone and said, “The Democrat party in a nutshell”.
The Democrat party stomps on common middle class people because they believe they are the royals of this country. The Democrats are always in their ivory towers looking down at the proletariat.

Democrats have contempt for Americans; they think they are superior to everyone else and if you dare speak up, you are a racist.

Sarsour: You Have No Right To Tell Us We Can’t Kill Jews
THIS IS A DEMOCRAT/FEMINIST ICON…SHE SHOULD BE DEPORTED
Islamic terrorists would like immunity from any accountability. They want to smash in the skulls of little girls, fire rockets at schools from kindergartens and then accuse Israel of violating human rights. But standards work both ways, despite Sarsour’s “punching up terrorism” nonsense. If you opt out of the laws of war, so do your enemies. Everyone is oppressed in their own minds anyway.

But the Democrats continue to stand by Linda Sarsour, despite a blatant defense of anti-Semitic Islamic terrorism and accusations of complicity in sexual harassment against a fellow Muslim woman.  Because there’s nothing the left won’t excuse from Islamic Supremacists.

And I Alone Survived

Throwing caution to the wind, I put concern for my personal safety aside and accompanied my beloved child bride into the maelstrom known as the shopping mall during the holiday season. Our plan had some success, given our early arrival in an effort to complete the mission and retreat before the assault reached a fever pitch. Winding our way through the JC Penney store, we emerged onto the main battlefield and took evasive action, ducking into a Zales Jewelers. Always wanting to have my betrothed awash in finery, she picked out a nice sterling silver and topaz ring. It had to be sized, so she won’t get it until the first week of January. She pointed out our anniversary is in February so she rationalized it could commemorate our long ago nuptials. She has a mind like a steel trap.
After a trek into Bed Bath and Beyond for some smelly concoctions, we were off to the grown man’s Chuck E Cheese, Victoria’s Secret. One would have thought purchasing gift cards would be a rather simple process. As we neared the counter, much to my chagrin, there were two long lines at the checkout. It was reminiscent of a WalMart the day the welfare class get their food stamps. I gave her my bank card to pay with and found a bench outside the store. The longer I stood there, watching women peruse stacks of panties and demi bras, the dirtier I felt.
Our final mission was a lunch at the food court. We dined on mango chicken with fried rice, bang bang shrimp, and spring rolls. Billy club and mace at the ready, we elbowed our way through the frenzied throng back through the Penney store and emerged, bruised but unbroken, in the parking lot to beat a strategic retreat to the sanctity of our home territory. I don’t think I want to go through that hell again.

GOP senators hold back support for tax bill over child tax credit
THE SENATE HAS TO PASS A TAX CUT BILL BEFORE RECESS AND THEY KNOW IT… SO DO THE DEMOCRATS.
TRUE TO THE OLD CANARD ABOUT HERDING CATS, ALL THE USUAL SUSPECTS ARE PLAYING HARD TO GET WITH THEIR VOTE FOR THIS BILL. MURKOWSKI, FLAKE, McCAIN, COLLINS, AND RUBIO HAVE ALL SET CONDITIONS FOR THEIR APPROVAL. TO HELL WITH THE PEOPLE, WE WANT WHAT WE WANT.
“Senator Rubio has consistently communicated to the Senate tax negotiators that his vote on final passage would depend on whether the refundability of the child tax credit was increased in a meaningful way,” said Rubio spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas.
Conn Carroll, a spokesman for Utah GOP Sen. Mike Lee, also said Lee is “undecided” on the bill in its current form.
Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, the only Republican to vote against the original version of the tax bill passed by the Senate, also told Fox News he is undecided on whether he will vote for the final version of the bill

Illness sidelines McCain, Cochran as tax vote nears
HERE WE HAVE THE COUNTRY’S LONGEST LIVING RINO AND THAT CADAVER WITH A PULSE WHO ARE DESPERATELY NEEDED TO PASS THE TAX CUTS. MCCAIN WILL SURELY ENJOY SOMEBODY BEGGING HIM TO DO SOMETHING FOR THE PEOPLE HE CLAIMS TO REPRESENT FOR ONCE, AND COCHRAN WILL HAVE TO BE STRAPPED TO A FURNITURE DOLLY AND WHEELED IN. REMEMBER, THIS WAS THE CORPSE THAT McCONNELL’S HIT SQUAD PAID VOTERS IN MISSISSIPPI TO VOTE FOR TO KEEP THE SEAT AWAY FROM A CONSERVATIVE.
I RECALL WHEN THE DEMOCRATS NEEDED A VOTE FROM KKK BYRD, THEY WHEELED HIM ONTO THE FLOOR OF THE SENATE TO VOTE… ONE SNOT BUBBLE FOR YEA, TWO BUBBLES FOR NAY.
Both men missed all Senate votes this week, but their presence will be crucial early next week as the GOP tries to pass the tax bill in the Senate with a razor-thin Republican majority of 52-48 — and all Democrats opposed to the legislation. Adding to the uncertainty on Thursday was Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who said he would vote against the bill if negotiators failed to expand the child tax credit.

“You’re Vying To Replace Jerry Springer”: CNN’s Jim Acosta Roasted For Spreading #FakeNews About Gun Control
CNN‘s Jim Acosta is at it again. The White House correspondent spread fake news about gun control to his nearly 500,000 Twitter followers on Thursday.
Acosta was widely mocked for his tweet, as per usual.
“This is a lie. If a politician said this, Jim Acosta would interrupt the press conference to live-fact-check him with readily available FBI statistics,” pointed out National Review’s Charles C.W. Cooke.

Mike Huckabee Tells Mika Brzezinski To ‘Go Pound Sand’ After She Attacks His Daughter
Mike Huckabee told Mika Brzezinski to “go pound sand” after the “Morning Joe” co-host attacked his daughter, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Wednesday.

“My daughter stands strong and tough and walks into that lion’s den of a press room every day and represents women and represents the president and represents strength in an incredible way.”
On Wednesday’s “Morning Joe,” Brzezinski expressed disbelief that Sanders could stand by President Donald Trump’s tweet that suggested Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand would “do anything” for political donations. Some thought that Trump’s tweet implied Gillibrand exchanged sexual favors for political donations.

NO MATTER HOW OLD A WOMAN GETS, SHE WILL ALWAYS BE HER DADDY’S LITTLE GIRL. I EXPECT IT’S THAT WAY ALL OVER THE CIVILIZED WORLD.

Eric Trump: Kirsten Gillibrand visited my dad’s office ‘every three days’ to ask for campaign money
“I remember Kirsten Gillibrand when she came into his office every three days to ask him for money and asking for major campaign contributions,” Eric Trump, 33, told WABC radio host Rita Cosby in an interview Wednesday. “There is no one who wanted to get into his office more than Kirsten Gillibrand.
Mr. Trump lashed out at the senator on Twitter Tuesday, calling her a “lightweight,” who would “come to my office ‘begging’ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them).”
Mrs. Gillibrand on Tuesday called the tweet a “sexist smear” and accused the president of trying to silence his accusers.

Thom Hartmann: Trump’s Tweet Slamming Gillibrand is ‘Impeachable’ Offense

BITCH, PLEASE
The perpetual outrage machine that is the left’s pathological loathing for President Trump keeps reaching new lows in absurdity, albeit only on an hourly basis.
Plenty of liberals have labeled Trump’s tweet slamming Democrat Senator and potential 2020 opponent Kirsten Gillibrand as “sexual harassment.” But liberal radio host Thom Hartmann went beyond that and described it — I’m not making this up — as grounds for impeachment.

“With his latest tweet, clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office. Rock bottom is no impediment for a president who can always find room for a new low.”
They went on to say President Trump would be unworthy to do bathroom duty at the Obama library.

You Make This Difficult

After Tuesday night’s results my first inclination was to just ignore things for a few days. Then I look at the stats and see that there are still a few of you who actually come here even when Chrissy hasn’t posted anything. I enjoy doing this, but as it is in life, there are good days and bad days. Your only hope is that the good outnumber the bad. I’ve seen a few facts about the race Tuesday night I will attempt to synopsize (I don’t really care if that’s a word, it just sounded good). There’s no rhyme or reason to my rants…never has been. I’m not a professional writer. I’m not a professional anything unless being a pain in the ass counts. I don’t really mean to be, but I’m really good at it.

‘You Gotta Give the Devil Its Due’: Bannon Praises DNC’s ‘Ground Game’ in Alabama
“The DNC came in here — slipped in here — underneath the radar and did an amazing job of organizing — what’s my favorite word — ground game,” Bannon said.
He suggested that Democrats outworked Republicans and were able to drive voter turnout.

GOP’s Shelby played key role in Alabama Democrat’s victory
Shelby, Alabama’s senior senator and the state’s most influential official, publicly opposed GOP nominee Roy Moore and declared before the election that “the state of Alabama deserves better” than a former judge accused of sexual contact with teenage girls decades ago.
A former Democrat, Shelby, 83, announced weeks before the election that he had already cast an absentee ballot for another, unspecified Republican, even as President Donald Trump and other prominent state Republicans stood up for Moore.

Tammy Bruce: Republican Establishment Wants To Lose Senate Majority So Trump’s Agenda Fails
Conservative commentator Tammy Bruce, in a discussion about Alabama Republican candidate for Senate Roy Moore, said the Republican establishment want the party to lose the majority in the Senate so the Trump agenda fails. Bruce cited Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL), who announced he did not vote for Moore, and Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who donated to the Democratic candidate Doug Jones, as examples.
“This is a test for the president,” Bruce said Tuesday on FOX News’ Hannity. “I think what you’ve seen with Shelby going against it. Jeff Flake, giving money to this guy. I think the Republicans in the Senate want to lose the Senate. I think they want the president’s agenda to fail and the only way to really achieve that is to suddenly become the minority.”
“Tammy, that is a profound, a deeply troubling thing you just said,” host Sean Hannity said.
https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2017/12/12/tammy_bruce_republican_establishment_wants_to_lose_senate_majority_so_trumps_agenda_fails.html

She may be spot on. The Republican elites care nothing for being in the majority. If they did, they’d have helped the president with his agenda. All they care about is getting their share of the money. It’s far easier to sit back and make false claims about what you would do if you had the power than to actually do it.
Spin it any way you want…now the Dems can’t hold Moore over every Republican next year.
Jones can’t win the general in 2020.
The democrats got one of the heaviest black turnouts ever. They also offered cash for votes. Heavily black Montgomery County waited until all the other counties had reported before they released their totals.
Some of you may remember the close presidential race in 1960 between John Kennedy and Richard Nixon. Nixon was leading, but Mayor Daley was withholding the totals from Cook County. Whoever won Illinois won the election. He waited to see how many votes they needed to steal the election. That’s where the legend of the dead voter came from. They succeeded and the rest, as they say, is history. They’ve been getting away with it for decades and will continue to because they pay absolutely no price for it.

Trump: I Was Right About the Alabama Senate Race
But the president, who backed Moore’s primary opponent Luther Strange, wasn’t done commenting on the race, tweeting Wednesday:
“The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!”

Steve Bannon’s Big Loss in Alabama
The big loser in Tuesday’s Alabama’s special Senate election was not the Republican Party. They had already lost weeks ago, the moment the Washington Post wrote their (carefully vetted, in this instance) exposé of the thirty-year-old sexual proclivities of Judge Roy Moore.
In many ways, the Republicans are lucky not to have Moore to deal with in Congress. They can face obvious White House aspirant Kirsten Gillibrand and her merry band of hypocrites with a straight face.

Why Republicans Shouldn’t Worry Too Much About Moore’s Loss
Even with the loss of a seat to Jones, Republicans still retain enough of a majority to pass whatever legislation they want, provided all 51 Republican senators vote in lockstep. Senate Republicans passed a budget in October that allows leadership to pass legislation with only 51 “yes” votes and bypass filibusters from Democrats altogether.
Jones also won’t be a factor Republicans have to consider for a number of weeks. Leadership announced Tuesday that Jones will not likely be seated until after the Christmas recess, which means Republicans will maintain their 52 seat majority while finalizing tax reform and negotiating the upcoming budget agreement.

Comparing Moore in 2012 to Moore in 2017
Comparing Trump in 2016 to Moore in 2017

In 2012, Moore won a state Supreme Court seat. In 2017 he outperformed his margins in 32 counties, but in 35 others he did worse.
Every single county swung left compared to 2016, with some moving more than 15 points. Moore lost 12 counties that Trump won.

AS EXPECTED, THE LIBERAL GLOAT-FEST WAS NOTHING SHORT OF VOMIT INDUCING
Chuck Todd Warns: ‘Every Republican’ Must ‘Fear for Their Political Lives’

“Now Republicans have to be asking themselves, is this a one-off, is this a candidate who was flawed, or is this a sign of what could happen in the 2018 midterms?” Rather than blame Moore for the loss, Todd had someone else in mind:
“First of all, Donald Trump is political toxin, period. Look at the year throughout. You have to go through – this is not a one-off. Let’s start – this started in Kansas, in Montana, in Georgia, there were all these special elections. And Democrats didn’t win them, but they were over-performing by 10 and 15 points. Democratic enthusiasm, Trump problems.”

CBS Celebrates Jones Campaign Efforts, Predicts ‘GOP On the Ropes’
The first segment was narrated by reporter Manuel Bojorquez, who declared that “Alabama voters rolled back the political tides yesterday.” He highlighted the efforts of the Jones campaign in the days leading up to the election: “Jones was able to energize a traditionally weak democratic network here … He was buoy by millions in outside money and outspent Moore on campaign ads by 5-1.”
“His campaign says supporter knocked on 300,000 doors and made more than a million phone calls. And Jones had multiple campaign appearances a day while Moore shied away from cameras, dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls,” Bojorquez added.

“We Did It!” – GOP Establishment and #NeverTrumpers Cheer Republican Roy Moore’s Loss
Several establishment Republicans and imposters cheered the election victory of Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama on Tuesday.
Bill Kristol‘s #NeverTrump leader Evan McMullin sent out an email on Wednesday cheering the Democrat victory.

These people have no commitment to the American people.
Democrat policies create pain and suffering on society.
These GOP elites could not care less.
So here is Evan McButthead.
Or, if you prefer, Evan McAsshat.

Breitbart News Daily Callers Explain Alabama GOP Senate Loss: ‘Mitch McConnell Is a Snake’
“I don’t see how there’s any justification for Mitch McConnell to have a fund where he gets to pick the candidate. Is that what the head of the party’s supposed to be doing?” asked Ralph in Colorado, criticizing McConnell’s influence over the Senate Leadership Fund (SLF).
The SLF is led by Steven Law, McConnell’s former chief of staff. The SLF spent millions of dollars supporting Sen. Luther Strange’s (R-AL) failed primary campaign against Roy Moore.

Dems Find Winning Formula
“The Democrats finally got their narrative shifting win even if it was the result of accusing an honorable man of being a child molester and plumbing the gutters of racial demagoguery. The party and its radical left backers in California threw everything that they had into this election and it worked, setting up three years of sexual smears to come that they hope will result in their return to power.

However, they couldn’t have pulled it off without a huge helping hand from Republicans who with the exception of President Trump, refused to support their own candidate and losing a Senate seat that should have been theirs for the taking. It’s probably more accurate to attribute Jones’ big win to Moore being fragged by his own troops led by Mitch McConnell who made it clear that the judge would never be seated if he did win by threatening an immediate ethics investigation into the four-decades-old allegations from a handful of women.

Will the women now simply go away? That is probably a pretty safe bet, they have served their purpose. Even with their win, it took a massive mobilization of black voters and a registration of felons to beat Moore and now that they have served their purpose, the Democrats will forget about them and move on to the next race.” – DONN MARTEN

Dem Rep Hijacks Rosenstein Hearing To Talk Sexual Harassment
Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee went on an inexplicable rant about sexual harassment claims during a congressional hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

“What intentions does the Department of Justice have to allow these women, who are accusing the president of sexual misconduct and have never been heard in terms of a public setting…what does the Department of Justice intend to do?”
“If they file a lawsuit, they’re free to do so, it would be a Department matter” Rosenstein responded somewhat incredulously.

Friday Leftovers

The original plan was to do this when I finished delivering my papers. Then I decide to take a nap. It was Friday, so breakfast with my uncles. Then I went for my first appointment to have cortisone injections in my back. I came home and the rest of the day was pretty well shot. However, there was a lot going on and I felt obligated to lay some of this down since I have a couple hours before I’m off again in 15 degree weather to keep people informed.

IS HE IN OR OUT?

I tuned in to C-Span Thursday to watch that flea-infested gutter rat Stuart Smalley resign from the Senate. I watched almost 5 minutes of it before my gag reflex betrayed me and I had to turn it off.

Then, being the petty little prick he is, he whined about Trump and Judge Moore. Then it dawned on me. He’s waiting to see if Moore wins next Tuesday. If he does he’ll probably un-resign and claim if Moore stays, he will too. Notice Conyers and Franken are the Democrats’ sacrificial lambs because both are extremely safe seats. How much more liberal can you get than Detroit?

Sen. Al Franken Will Resign ‘in the Coming Weeks’

“A couple months ago I felt that we had entered an important moment in the history of this country. We finally listened to women.”

“Then the conversation turned to me,” Franken added.

Mika Brzezinski Sets Internet On Fire With 5 Words After Franken’s Resignation

MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski reacted to Al Franken announcing his impending resignation with five words: “This does not feel right.”

Ready?’: Democratic senators and staffers shed tears during Al Franken’s resignation speech

Only one Republican sat in on Franken’s speech, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. The rest of the Republican side sat empty.

If you as a woman truly believe a man is a creepy serial sex assaulter of women, do you get all misty-eyed and line up to tightly hug him when he resigns from the Senate following your demand he do so in the face of numerous accusations of sexual assault? If you are a Democrat woman senator, the answer is ‘yes’, even though several of the allegations involved Franken groping and forcing kisses during hugs. Franken was also photographed assaulting a woman in her sleep.

In his speech, Franken name-checked former Sen. Paul Wellstone, the longtime Minnesota Democrat on three occasions. Franken famously defeated former Sen. Norm Coleman in 2009 by 312 votes — who Wellstone was set to face off against in 2002 until a plane crash took his life only eleven days before the election — giving Democrats the much-needed 60th vote for a brief period of time that allowed them to pass the Affordable Care Act.

REMEMBER THIS LITTLE SNIPPET? I DO.

THIS WAS WHEN ALL THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS WHO HAD COME TO SHOW THEIR RESPECT WERE ORDERED TO LEAVE, THEN CAME THE PEP RALLY.

If Moore wins and Franken un-resigns, will Senate Democrats back him up?
He was careful this morning not to admit to any wrongdoing, merely saying that he’d lost the confidence of his colleagues and therefore had to go. Imagine now that Moore wins and, as expected, McConnell’s caucus immediately starts hemming and hawing about whether he should be expelled.

Chris Matthews: ‘The Worst You Can Say About Democrats Is They’re Too Pure’

ABC’s Rick Klein: Franken didn’t show any contrition in resignation speech

With Al Franken out, Democrats hope to make Republicans answer for Roy Moore and Donald Trump

OK, WE GAVE UP TWO OF THE SCORE OF MISCREANTS IN OUR PARTY, SO GET RID OF ONE THAT IT’S NEVER BEEN PROVED HE DID ANYTHING WRONG. WE JUST DON’T WANT ANY OF THAT ‘GOD’ STUFF AROUND HERE.

If Moore, accused of preying on young girls, is elected, Democrats will hammer Republicans unceasingly. Even if he’s not, Democrats made clear their intent to raise anew the several allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Trump before the 2016 election in a bid to make Republicans answer on this politically super-charged issue.

[CtH: Every time this is mentioned, the Republican being targeted should recite the names of Clinton’s accusers and refuse to say anything else.]

CBS Mourns Franken Resignation: ‘The End to a Potentially Storied Career’
You know, Al Franken is one of very few Democrats in Congress who can truly claim to have had a nationwide progressive profile, even before he came to the Senate in 2009, because of his Air America radio show.  And that led to him having, you know, a true ability to raise money for other lawmakers.

Female lieutenant governor expected to replace Franken
Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton is expected to appoint his lieutenant governor and close ally, Tina Smith, to Al Franken’s seat, three people familiar with the Democratic governor’s thinking said.

But that appointment would be just the start of an upheaval in Minnesota. Part of the reason Smith could be heading to the Senate, the sources said, is that she has indicated no interest in running for Congress in the past and would not run for the remainder of Franken’s term, which expires in 2020, in a 2018 special election. That would clear the way for a wide open Democratic primary next year.

Civil War in Detroit’s Dirty Dynasty

John Conyers II is out. Long live John Conyers III.

After spending almost 60 years in Congress as a politician and a staffer, Rep. John Conyers II has to decide which of his many relatives to pass Michigan’s 13th congressional district to. It’s like King Lear, if Shakespeare’s fictional monarch had been forced to step down after groping a woman in church.

The 13th is a very nice district to inherit. Conyers has won it by 77%, 79% and 82%. Fidel Castro couldn’t ask for better elections. Whichever Conyers clan member gets it will be staying in Congress for 60 years.

And will inherit Rep. Conyers’ government Cadillac Escalade.
