President Donald Trump recorded a robocall for Rep. Barletta during the state’s Republican primary, urging voters to back the former Hazelton mayor. Continue reading

This is just as important as many other things the President is doing.
For the third time in the Trump administration, Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley has moved forward with a confirmation hearing for an appeals court nominee over the objections of Democratic home-state senators
Many people have bemoaned the demise of the filibuster and now the blue slip. It certainly reflects a decline in senatorial courtesy. It’s bad news for individual senators, who now have less power to scuttle nominations.
What is (was) a blue slip?
In the Senate, a blue slip is an opinion written by a Senator from the state where a federal judicial nominee resides. Both senators from a nominee’s state are sent a blue slip in which they may submit a favorable or unfavorable opinion of a nominee. They may also choose not to return a blue slip. What was originally meant as a courtesy has been abused by some Senators to stall Trump’s nominees.
Boy, that feeled good.
That noise you hear is my former Honors English teacher, the late Mrs. Gladys Ford, rolling in her grave. She was the best I ever knew.
Democrats, women candidates score big in Texas primaries
THEY WERE ANTICIPATING LANDSLIDES ACROSS THE STATE. WHAT IT WAS, WAS A LOT OF EARLY VOTERS.
The AP touted gains made by women and minorities, but a closer look at results wasn’t all that impressive. The Democrats didn’t get the numbers they wanted.
AUSTIN, Texas — Women running for Congress surged to big wins and Democrats smashed recent turnout levels in Texas’ first-in-the-nation 2018 primary elections, giving Republicans a potential glimpse of what’s ahead in the first midterms under President Donald Trump.
Energized and angry Democrats in Texas, where the GOP has dominated for decades, came out in force to surpass 1 million voters Tuesday — the first time the party has eclipsed that benchmark in a midterm primary since 2002, just months after the Sept. 11 attacks.
Here is the Politico results from each primary contest

THERE WAS ONE BIG DEMOCRAT WINNER….SOROS BOUGHT ANOTHER DA
Soros Chalks Up Another DA Win After Dropping Nearly $1 Million In Texas Race
George Soros has effectively purchased another district attorney’s seat.
The left-wing billionaire pumped almost $1 million into a Texas district attorney’s race against a Democratic DA who opposes sanctuary cities, according to campaign filings reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Soros’s preferred candidate, Joe Gonzales, upset incumbent Bexar County DA Nico LaHood in the Democratic primary Tuesday. LaHood conceded after Gonzales jumped up to a sizable lead as votes were counted.
Ted Cruz worries: Texas could turn blue this year
This is mostly hype, a case of Cruz trying to steer the absurd Democratic expectations about Texas to his own ends by scaring donors into kicking in, but he’s not talking complete nonsense. And since Texas holds its primaries today, it’s worth paying some attention to it.
Parkland Shooting Survivor to Sue Broward School District After Deputy Accused of Failing to Act
Parkland student Anthony Borges, who was shot five times during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, plans to sue the Broward County school system “to cover the cost of his recovery.”
GOOD ON HIM. I’M SICK OF SEEING THE BIRTH UNITS OF VICIOUS THUGS WHO PAID THE PRICE FOR TRYING TO KILL COPS GET REWARDED WITH MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. I HOPE THIS KID GETS THE SHERIFFS’ HOUSE
‘The failure of Broward County Public Schools, and of the principal and school resource officer to adequately protect students, and in particular our client, from life-threatening harm were unreasonable, callous and negligent,’ attorney Alex Arreaza wrote in the lawsuit notice on Monday. ‘Such action or inaction led to the personal injuries sustained by my client.’
The lawsuit is likely to be the first of many filed by survivors and victims’ families.C

CNN Travels To Thailand To Speak With Prostitute Who Claims To Have Dirt On Trump
CNN is dispatching reporters around the world to help dig up clues and finally get to the bottom of the Trump campaign’s Russia ties. Last month the network infamously sent a reporter to St. Petersburg, where he literally dug around a dumpster looking for leads.
Today CNN sent a reporter to Bangkok to speak with a prostitute who claims to have the goods on the Trump camp’s alleged collusion with Russia. The woman, Anastasia Vashukevich, who is also a self-described “sex coach,” is currently imprisoned, and hopes that America will offer her asylum in exchange for her story.
CNN apparently found this tale credible enough to send a reporter to cover.
And they don’t call them the Clown News Network for Nothing……
DACA Illegal Aliens Arrested After Shutting Down Street Outside Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin Office
DEPORT THEM ALL…NOW!
Illegal aliens and open borders activists demanding immediate amnesty for the 12 to 30 million illegal aliens living in the United States were arrested outside House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Racine, Wisconsin office after shutting down the street.
How Close Is America to Outright Gun Confiscation? Very Close.
What you have above are four crystal clear examples of a former president and an almost-president, both of them leaders of the Democrat Party, openly speaking out in favor of gun confiscation — which is precisely what both are talking about when they extol the wondrous virtues of “what Australia did.”
What happened in Australia was that the government sponsored a gun buyback in which Australians were forced to hand their guns in. That is confiscation, full stop.
Nevertheless, despite four crystal clear examples, the Washington Post fact checkers have said that it is a lie to accuse either Hillary or Obama of wanting to confiscate guns.
NAACP Urges National Gun Confiscation
NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson called for a national gun confiscation program in a syndicated column through Black Press USA on Monday.
Comparing recent school shootings to the violence and discrimination black students faced after the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, Johnson wrote that “fear and terror still exist in our children’s classrooms” because of the “National Rifle Association and the politicians [sic] that support them.”
Senate clears two more judicial nominees, 27 total judges confirmed
Karen Gren Scholer was confirmed to the Northern District of Texas Monday by a vote of 95-0. The Senate also voted 85-11 to confirm Tilman Eugene Self III to the Middle District of Georgia.
Mr. Trump has placed 27 judges on the federal bench since taking office last January, when he faced an unprecedented amount of judicial vacancies. Fourteen of the 28 judicial picks took seats on circuit courts, while the other 13 nominees filled vacancies on district courts.
There are nearly five dozen more judicial nominees currently awaiting either hearings before members on the Judiciary Committee or votes before the full Senate.
When Melania and Mrs. Netanyahu met, people did a double take. Then people saw the ice-cold stilettos
Love her or not, it’s becoming clear that Melania Trump will go down in history as one of America’s most beautiful and fashion-forward icons.
Melania, in powder blue, was seemingly color coordinated with Sara Netanyahu, who wore a light teal ensemble for the couple’s official visit to the U.S.
Both women were stunning, but Melania literally stood out with skyscraping metallic stilettos of the same color.
MSNBC Host to DNC Chair: Should Dems Demand Trump Impeachment?
In a softball interview with Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez on Monday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Kasie Hunt asked if the Democratic Party should make the impeachment of President Trump part of its platform. She also invited the liberal leader to wildly speculate on whether Trump was guilty of colluding with Russia during the 2016 campaign.
Now There’s a Play Called ‘Kill Climate Deniers,’ Because Why Not
Do you know anyone who denies that there’s such a thing as climate? Do you know anybody who hears the word “climate” and says, “Nuh-uh! You can’t fool me, that’s just made up!” I don’t. Yet whenever somebody questions any aspect of the prevailing global warming orthodoxy, he or she is labeled a “climate denier.”
Sounds like a real crowd-pleaser. They even made a trailer of sorts for it:
Democratic Mayor Pleads Guilty To Stealing Over $10K From Taxpayers To Fund Her Affair, But She’s Not Heading To Jail
I HAVE ALWAYS MAINTAINED DEMOCRATS DO NOT PROSECUTE DEMOCRATS
Nashville Mayor Megan Barry pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony theft for spending more than $10,000 worth of government money, but will serve no time in jail.
Barry had reportedly been working on negotiations with Nashville District Attorney Glenn Funk to face no prosecution if she were to resign from office. Instead of jail, Barry will serve three years of probation and agreed to repay the city $11,000 in reimbursement fees, although it was reported she spent nearly $33,000 of the government’s money.
Maxine ‘Impeach 45’ Waters Receives ‘National Unity Award’

Dick Durbin Calls No Amnesty ‘Humanitarian Crisis’ While Blacks Overly Unemployed in His State
“This humanitarian crisis in this country, and I call it that,” Durbin said. “Was created by President Trump on September 5th.”
President Trump, in contrast to Durbin, has secured historic wage increases, job opportunities, and record-low unemployment for black Americans through his strict immigration enforcement initiative known as “Buy American, Hire American,” which has weeded many illegal aliens out of the U.S. workforce.
The black unemployment sits at 6.8 percent nationwide, the lowest ever in history since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking black unemployment in 1972.
TRUMP HAS MADE JOBS POSSIBLE FOR BLACKS, BUT HE WILL BE GIVEN ABSOLUTELY NO CREDIT. KEEP ‘EM ON THE DEMOCRAT PLANTATION.
Police: Shootings at Chicago Gang Member Funerals ‘Out of Control’
KEEP IN MIND, CHICAGO, UNDER COMPLETE DEMOCRAT CONTROL FOR ALMOST A CENTURY, HAS SOME OF THE STRICTEST GUN LAWS IN THE NATION.
GANGSTERS DON’T SEEM TO BE OBEYING THE LAW…IMAGINE THAT.
Shootings at the funerals of Chicago-area gang members have surged to the point that police now say they are “out of control.”
Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin said there have actually been times when individuals hung out of cars and shot at one another. He said such an incident occurred in December 2017 during a funeral procession was en route to Oak Ridge Cemetery
Illegal Aliens With Sex, Robbery Convictions Among The 800 Who Evaded Capture After Dem Mayor’s Warning
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tweeted out an impending warning of the four-day raid last week, alerting targeted individuals to the imminent arrests, and infuriating Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, who say that many more could have been caught if they hadn’t been warned.
The raid led to the arrest of 232 illegal immigrants in the San Francisco Bay Area, 180 of which ICE said “were either convicted criminals, had been issued a final order of removal and failed to depart the United States, or had been previously removed” from the country and had come back illegally.
Justice Department Sues California For Laws Protecting Illegal Aliens

Perez: DCCC Shouldn’t Attack Democrats They Haven’t Endorsed
On Tuesday, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released a “much-less redacted,” version of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s criminal referral of dossier author Christopher Steele.
It shows that the FBI KNEW Steele LIED about his contact with media outlet and DID NOT disclose this very pertinent information to the FISA court.

Trump’s lawyers reportedly don’t want him talking to Mueller – It’s advice he should take
There is no evidence Robert Mueller needs from Donald Trump – it’s a trap Trump should avoid unless and until the Supreme Court rules otherwise.
Those characteristics, while they proved valuable against the comatose and drab Hillary, could be a disaster in an interview with Mueller. Mueller’s team is very experienced in these perjury and obstruction traps. They will not ask any questions they don’t already know the answer to, and the questions they ask will not be posed to obtain information. They have all the information. They will be probing not for information, but for mistakes.
Don’t do it. I don’t know what power Mueller would have to compel testimony, but nothing should be done voluntarily.

Schumer Delivers Most Unhinged Rant Yet: Trump ‘Most Dangerous and Worst Man’ Ever To Be POTUS
“We are dealing with probably the most dangerous and worst man in the presidency we have ever had in the history of this nation, but we are going to win the fight,” Schumer told the crowd.
“If we can take back the Senate, that means that I will have the sole power to determine what goes on the floor of the Senate,” he added. “It means we’ll be able stop Donald Trump from putting all his junk on the floor and stop the anti-LGBT cascade of things that come into the United States Senate,” the Senate Minority Leader continued.
Baltimore Mayor Debuts Crime Prevention Office to Support Black Males
Mayor Catherine Pugh announced a new office, to be called the Office of African American Male Engagement, which she says will begin operations on February 12. It is modeled after a similar venture in Philadelphia, where it is called the Office of Black Male Engagement.
The mayor also said she has picked former city high school principal and mayoral candidate Andrey Bundley to helm the office.
“The reason the office is important is because too many black men are either the perpetrators of crime or victims of it,” Bundley said, according to the Baltimore Sun. “It is about saving lives.”
Judge criticized by Trump may end up determining fate of border wall, report says
US District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, whom President Trump accused of being biased in handling the Trump University case during the 2016 election, will hear a case on Friday to decide whether the president’s proposed wall along the southern border can get waivers for environmental laws.
If Curiel rules against President Trump, the administration’s effort to secure the border between the US and Mexico could come to a halt.
Curiel, an Indiana native who was nominated to the federal bench by Barack Obama in 2011, was criticized by the president in 2016 for certifying class-action lawsuits that claimed Trump University was fraudulent.
The 2018 Elections Just Got A Bit Easier For Democrats Thanks To The Supreme Court
The Pennsylvania legislature will redraw the state’s congressional district lines in advance of the 2018 midterm elections, after the Supreme Court Monday declined to overturn an order requiring a new map.
The decision is a victory for Pennsylvania Democrats, who convinced the state supreme court in January that the current map is gerrymandered to favor Republicans, in violation of the state constitution. The court ordered the GOP-controlled legislature to produce a new map by Feb. 9.
Trudeau Corrects Woman: Say ‘Peoplekind’ Instead of ‘Mankind’ It’s ‘More Inclusive’

Stanford students feel ‘unsafe and hurt,’ brought to tears over flyers defending ICE agents
Some Stanford University students felt “unsafe and hurt” and were apparently brought to tears over satirical flyers defending ICE agents hung in the Kimball Hall dorm.
That according to the student who hung them, Isaac Kipust, who writes he was subsequently summoned before Associate Dean of Students Alejandro Martinez and his aggrieved peers to answer for his actions.
Homelessness in Los Angeles Has Surged by 75 Percent in Six Years
“by far the biggest single group of unsheltered people in any U.S. city”
Three out of four homeless people — 41,000 — live in cars, campers, tents and lean-tos, by far the biggest single group of unsheltered people in any U.S. city. If you took out Los Angeles, national homelessness would have dropped last year for the first time since the recession.
The problem has only gotten worse since Mayor Eric Garcetti took office in 2013 and a liberal Democratic supermajority emerged in 2016 on the county Board of Supervisors.
If you think any of this has caused California to re-think any of its policy positions, guess again. They’re planning to push even further to the left.

New GOP Ad Torches ‘Joe Voted No’ Manchin For Siding With Schumer
West Virginia’s State Auditor has released new statistics about the degree to which Manchin’s constituents stand to gain from the exclusively Republican-passed law — and this is among state employees alone
State employees in West Virginia are collectively expected to keep an additional $50 million annually, according to State Auditor John B. “JB” Mccluskey. McCuskey attributed this savings to the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which will provide state employees with a reduction in their tax withholding…
Judge Rules Bakeshop Owner Doesn’t Have To Bake Wedding Cake For Gay Couple
“For this court to force such compliance would do violence to the essentials of Free Speech guaranteed under the First Amendment,” Lampe ruled, according to a press release sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation. The injunction also posited that if Miller refused to design the cake, the state would force her to close her Tastries Bakery shop altogether.
LiMandri argued in Friday’s court hearing that Miller doesn’t discriminate against same-sex couples, but refuses to use her artistic talents to express a message that conflicts with her religious beliefs about marriage.
The #2 man at the FBI, Andrew McCabe was pushed out/resigned/terminated yesterday. The fact is he was placed on ‘permanent leave of absence’ until March when he can retire with full benefits… to the tune of $1.8 million. He will likely then get a six-figure job as a lobbyist on J Street where old politicians go to continue raking in big money. Congress voted to release the FISA memo, which will once again demonstrate how dirty and morally bankrupt the Democrats are and how deeply the system has been corrupted. Despite all the sh*tstorm, I still maintain nobody of any import is going to jail.
CtH < Remembering Election Day 2016 and praying Pete gets to celebrate being splendidly wrong again. 🙂
Andrew McCabe’s Pension Is Worth About $1.8 Million
Top FBI official retires after scrutiny for handling of Clinton email investigation
By multiplying McCabe’s highest average salary of $157,800 by 1.7 percent, for each of his first 20 years of service, he receives an annual $53,652 pension. He receives an additional 1 percent for one year of service, having served since 1996. This gives McCabe an additional $1,578, giving him an annual pension of $55,230.
New Acting Deputy Director Replacing Andrew McCabe Previously Worked With Comey to Hide Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting From Press
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AN ADMINISTRATION WITH SO MANY OPERATIVES ON THE INSIDE WORKING TO BRING IT DOWN.
It appears McCabe is the first victim of the FISA MEMO.
The swamp immediately struck back. The new Acting Deputy Director of the FBI replacing Andrew McCabe, David Bowdich worked under Comey. In fact, he may be a witness in the ‘Trump-Russia’ investigation because Comey had a conversation with him about Trump asking the former FBI Director to supposedly ‘back off its probe into General Flynn’.
Even worse, Bowdich was involved in the Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting conversations with Comey as they scrambled to hide the scandalous meeting from the public.
Pelosi: Immigration framework is a ‘campaign to make America white again’
IT’S SO SAD THAT RACE BAITING IS ALL THEY HAVE
“Let me just say what I said last night: that plan is a campaign to make America white again,” Pelosi said, claiming that the proposal will cut legal immigration by 50 percent…
In her remarks, Pelosi thanked mayors across the country for their “courage” in overseeing sanctuary cities, jurisdictions that do not fully cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
Joe Manchin Slams Nancy Pelosi for ‘Make America White Again’
MANCHIN IS THE MOST ENDANGERED DEMOCRAT IN THE SENATE. HE’S TRYING DESPERATELY TO SOUND LIKE A MODERATE TO SAVE HIS JOB. IT’S ALL AN ACT.
“You know what? We don’t need that type of rhetoric on either side,” Manchin told CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union. Asked whether that meant he “condemned” Pelosi’s remark, Manchin replied that his criticism would apply to both sides: “I’m condemning all this crazy rhetoric that goes on. Just because someone’s a Republican — it’s not my enemy. And we have to work together.”
Joy Reid Reprimands Another Republican: “We Say ‘Democratic’ Party Here”
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING DEMOCRATIC ABOUT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY.
Reid was at it again on her MSNBC show this morning. This time, the target of her ire was Jason Johnson, former chief strategist to Sen. Ted Cruz. When Johnson committed the unforgivable sin of twice referring to the “Democrat” party, Reid interrupted:
“You’re new to our show, but we say ‘Democratic’ party here.”
HEY JOY…SCREW YOU!
[CtH: Joy, honey, I go out of my way to use “Democrat Party.” I know it’s wrong and everybody who reads me regularly knows I’m a grammar nazi, so yes, it is meant to be a subtle insult. But given that you and your ilk regularly disrespect me and my “pro-life” peeps by using “pro-abortion”, I can’t say as I give a flippin’ finger what you think about it.]

BRUNO MARS WON 7 AWARDS AND THE INSUFFERABLE JAY-Z, OBAMA’S HOMEBOY, WAS NOMINATED FOR 7 AWARDS AND DIDN’T WIN A DAMN THING. THAT DIDN’T STOP HIS JACKASSERY.
JAY-Z slams Trump’s ‘s—hole’ comments, calls him a ‘superbug’
Trump must not have watched the interview because, as Jones noted on Twitter, he actually broached that very topic. “[Trump] is somebody who’s now saying, ‘Look, I’m dropping black unemployment. Black people are doing well under my administration.’”
Jones said. “Does he have a point? … Maybe he’s going to say terrible things but put money in our pocket; does that make him a good leader?”
“No,” JAY-Z replied. “It’s not about money at the end of the day. Money doesn’t equate to happiness, it doesn’t. That’s missing the whole point. You treat people like human beings.”

The Two Republicans Who Voted Against The 20-Week Abortion Ban
I GET SO TIRED OF THESE TWO.
The Senate voted 51-46 in favor of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which was short of the 60 votes required to proceed to a final vote under current Senate rules.
Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine both voted against the bill, which would have prohibited abortions on unborn babies after 20 weeks, the age at which they can feel pain, with exceptions in cases rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.
[CtH: These two always vote pro-abortion, but there are 2 or 3 Democrats who are strong on our side. If they change the Senate’s rules, this could pass. Planned Parenthood will instantly challenge it in the courts, so it won’t save many lives right away, but it will move the issue back to the SCOTUS docket eventually. A large majority of Americans favor it and Ginsburg is older than dirt, so we can pray with realistic hope.]
Hillary Clinton reads from ‘Fire and Fury’ at Grammys
CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE SHUT HER UP?
“He had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s — nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade,” the former Democratic presidential candidate read from the book, before Grammy host James Corden told her she had the award “in the bag.”
Along with Clinton, Corden’s bit of searching for the best narrator of Wolff’s book included Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, DJ Khaled and other stars.

12-Year-Old Being Honored By Trumps At SOTU For Placing U.S. Flags And Flowers At The Graves Of Veterans Since 2015A 12-year-old Redding boy will be a guest Tuesday at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. Preston Sharp, who has won acclaim for placing U.S. flags and flowers at the graves of North State veterans since 2015, will be one of a number of presidential guests at Trump’s speech, the White House announced Monday.
He is attending the address at the invitation of Donald and Melania Trump and will sit in the House of Representatives gallery with the first lady during the speech, the White House said.
[CtH: Wow! What a thrill for his whole family!]
Former Democrat Congresswoman Corrine Brown Turns Herself In To Prison, Still Draws Her Congressional Pension
SHE WAS SENTENCED TO FIVE YEARS…SHE’LL BE OUT IN TWO OR THREE AND WILL IMMEDIATELY GET RE-ELECTED.
The bus paused at the prison complex’s entrance and waited for Bishop Kelvin Cobaris to cross the highway and get on board. Cobaris had parked across the street from the prison, awaiting Brown’s arrival. Cobaris, who is the president of the African American Council of Christian Clergy, described himself as Brown’s spiritual advisor.
It’s unlikely that we will be able to see Corrine Brown’s mug shot. Unlike county and state corrections facilities, federal prisons rarely release mug shots. Brown will continue to collect her Congressional pension while she’s in prison until the appeals process has been exhausted.
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.

Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper is about to celebrate one of the most important anniversaries of his life.

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.
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.”
Sarah Sanders Tweets Picture From Young Infantryman in Afghanistan Showing What Servicemen Woke Up to Thanks to Democrats #SchumerShutdown
On Saturday, Sarah Sanders tweeted out a photo sent to her from an infantryman serving in Afghanistan. Thank you, Chuck Schumer and Democrats! This is all on you!
American Forces Network provides entertainment and other services to our service members overseas. Due to Schumer’s shutdown, our men and women overseas currently do not have access to this network.
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.
CNN Reporter: People ‘Don’t Care’ About Russia Investigation Even Though ‘That’s All We Talk About at CNN’
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.”
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.
McConnell on Senate Floor: This Government Shutdown Was 100 Percent Avoidable
“A government shutdown was 100 percent avoidable. Completely avoidable. Now it is imminent,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the Senate floor following the vote. “Perhaps across the aisle some of our Democratic colleagues are feeling proud of themselves, but what has their filibuster accomplished? . . . The answer is simple: Their very own government shutdown.”
Chuck Schumer 2013 Calls Chuck Schumer 2018 “The Politics Of Idiocy” For Shutting Down Government
The government shut down over Democrats pushing for DACA.
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.
Congratulations NY Times Hack Paul Krugman Winner of the 2017 #FakeNewsAwards! – You Finally Won an Award You Deserve
On November 9, 2016, New York Times economy “guru” Paul Krugman predicted that the economy would never recover from a Trump election victory.
On Wednesday January 17, 2018, the Trump Economy officially broke EVERY SINGLE DOW MARKET record.
Congratulations Mr. Krugman. You finally won an award you deserve!
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.
Sarah Sanders speaks for America on S**tholegate: ‘We’ve wasted five days fighting over one word’
Since that ill-fated remark, it’s been six straight days of high-horse moralizing, virtue signalling, hand-wringing, and bed-wetting from politicians, celebrities, and talking heads eager for America to know just how “morally superior” they are compared to that dastardly man in the White House who dared to say something out loud that everyone knows deep down is true, even if they refuse to admit it.
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.”
94-Year-Old Bob Dole – Confined to a Wheelchair – Stands for National Anthem at White House
94 year-old war hero and former Senator Bob Dole was honored today at the White House. Dole was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for his World War II service and decades of work in the House and Senate.
Grassley under fire for planning vote on 17 judicial nominees
Under Senate rules, nominees have to be approved by the full Senate in order to carry over into a new session of Congress.
But advocates are accusing Grassley of trying to avoid public scrutiny by slipping controversial candidates opposed by Democrats into an already stacked agenda.
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:
President Trump to Address March for Life
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced Wednesday afternoon President Trump will speak to the March for Life in Washington D.C. on Friday. He is the first sitting president to do so. He will address the crowd live through a video conference.
“Since his first day in office, President Trump has remained steadfast on his campaign promises to the pro-life cause and has actively worked to protect the unborn…We welcome our 45th President, Donald Trump, to the 45th annual March for Life,” March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said in a statement.
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.”
I REALIZE THESE POSTS ARE EXCRUCIATINGLY LONG… I CAN’T DO COMMENTS SINCE THEY’VE SWITCHED THE FORMAT.
DON’T HATE THE PLAYER… HATE THE GAME.
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 policy—all 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.
