Friday Catch All

Been spending most of my days sleeping. Thought I’d clear some things out before I take another nap. Did I mention that retirement has its good points?

Brooklyn Assemblywoman Pamela Harris stole tens of thousands in Hurricane Sandy money for vacations, lingerie

As Coney Island neighbors and the rest of the city struggled with the massive 2012 devastation, Harris lined her pockets with cash meant to aid the hurricane’s newly homeless, a federal indictment charges.

Harris spent $10,000 on vacations, including a cruise ship getaway, and shopped at Victoria’s Secret with her dirty money, authorities charged Tuesday.

And she allegedly urged witnesses to lie to the FBI in a failed cover-up of her crimes.
Harris looted some $60,000 in state and federal funds in several scams, including Federal Emergency Management Agency money for “temporary housing assistance” after the hurricane, officials charged.

Harris, 57, is a former correction officer and previously served as head of a Coney Island non-profit. She was accused of stealing $34,000 in cash provided by the City Council to pay rent for her group.

NYC Mayor to sue “Big Oil” for causing Hurricane Sandy or something

Many people still foolishly blame things like lightning strikes, tornadoes, tsunamis and hurricanes on the random vagaries of fate or simply describe them as acts of God. But not the intrepid Mayor of New York City, who apparently also doubles as a sleuth in his spare time. He’s been investigating the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy for half a decade now, seeking out the cause of the storm. And now he’s cracked the case, determining that the lethal storm which wrecked large parts of the northeast was caused by a coalition of five energy companies. And by God, he’s suing them over it.

Report: Frustrated Trump asks senators, why are we letting people in from “sh*thole countries”?

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday.

And just an fyi, notice the source: a Democratic aide who wasn’t even in the meeting.
Three guesses that this gets pulled back or the real story comes out later. But in the meantime, they’ll spread the ‘source’ said story.

CNN Goes Off on a Sh*thole Sh*tstorm: Mentions “Sh*thole” at least 36 Times in One Night

On Thursday afternoon President Donald Trump asked a group of pro-amnesty senators why the US should welcome migrants from “sh*tholes” like Haiti, Central America or African nations.

It was a good question.

But Democrats, liberal media and global community were outraged that the president would use such an offensive term to describe the global community’s failed states.

The hosts and contributors on CNN went on a sh*thole sh*tstorm last night.  The word “sh*thole” was mentioned at least 36 times on CNN on Thursday

RINO Jeff Flake Announces ‘Gang of 6’ Have Reached a DACA Amnesty Agreement

Flake is an anti-Trump pro-amnesty Republican.  He is not running for reelection this year in Arizona.

WHY IS HE STILL HERE?

The Gang of Six includes Republicans Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, Corey Gardner, and Democrats Dick Durbin, Michael Bennet, and Robert Menendez.  The three Republicans also are top anti-Trumpers.

Democratic Congresswomen Will Wear Black at Trump’s State of the Union to Protest Sexual Assualt

IF THEY WORE HIJABS OVER THEIR HEADS IT WOULD BE FINE WITH ME

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), along with the Democratic Women’s Working Group, is calling on the men and women in Congress to wear black to President Trump’s upcoming State of the Union address in solidarity with the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements against sexual harassment.

[CtH: I’d be more impressed if they wore black to protest all the lives that have been damaged and destroyed by perps forcing abortions on their victims to cover up sex crimes.]

Dems Admit They Need Illegals For Their Votes

Leaked memo reveals they are fighting to make the DREAMer nightmare permanent.

Republicans may not be angels but they have never wielded compassion as a cudgel the way Democrats do. But this memo ought to end Democrats’ phony compassion shtick for all time. Power is the only thing that matters to them. They don’t care about America or Americans. They care only about winning. Honest observers have known this for years.
What did Democrats actually do this time to help solidify their image as the party of power over principle?

Democrats can’t win elections without cheating. They pushed the 1993 Motor-Voter law to make voter fraud easy to commit and difficult to prosecute. They oppose voter ID laws tooth-and-nail for the same reason. They changed immigration laws a long time ago so they could change the electorate by importing new voters.

Nancy Pelosi Scoffs At ‘Crumb’ Bonuses By U.S. Companies As A Result Of Tax Cuts

“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic. It’s so pathetic,” the California Democrat said.

THEY MAY BE “CRUMBS TO A MULTI MILLIONAIRE, BUT A FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS TO HELP MAKE ENDS MEET IS NOT INSIGNIFICANT TO WORKING PEOPLE.

Report: Over 300 Labor Union Offices Have Embezzled Money Across The Country

The Detroit Free Press obtained documents from the Department of Labor that in the past two years, over 300 labor union chapters have detected fraud. Two cases with the United Auto Workers Union in Michigan and New Jersey had embezzling episodes that soared over $1 million. The Free Press added that at times, some people who have been tasked with looking after the books were simply not qualified for the job, some cases they were headed up by people who couldn’t balance their own checkbook.

Happy Race Neutral Friday

The original title was going to be “Happy race neutral, non-gender specific, nonbinary, gluten-free, nonjudgmental, pasteurized, homogenized, lactose free, gun free, zenith of crass commercialism Friday.” But it wouldn’t fit.

We have entered the month of retail Armageddon known as the Christmas shopping season. My promise to you is that you will never see ‘xmas’ in any reference to the celebration of Christ’s birth in anything I post. We are not ashamed of who we are.

Doing my paper delivery this morning, I passed through the parking lot of a Menard’s and a Target store. There were a few people at 3:30, but it’s not like it was some years ago when stores didn’t begin the orgy of spending on Thanksgiving night.

There was a time in my foolish youth when I enjoyed going to shopping malls, buying gifts, fighting crowds, immersed in the frenzy of the day.

When I was in college we played a game called ‘the parking lot game.’ Sick, but fun. We’d park in the last row at the mall and go inside. When we came out there were cars circling the parking lot like so many mechanical buzzards, cruising for a parking spot near the front. We’d take out our keys and pretend we were looking for where we parked and see how many cars we could get to follow us looking to grab a spot, like so many sheep following a Judas goat. Three was the most we ever scored. Perverse, twisted, cruel, but all we were really doing was using other peoples’ greed and sloth to amuse ourselves.

These days I can’t imagine people actually subjecting themselves to the bad attitudes of sales people and the short tempers of shoppers looking for deals on big screen TVs. What little shopping I do is accomplished from right where I’m sitting now. Go online, order what you want, and they send it to your door. No muss, no fuss, no smart asses playing the parking lot game.

Hoping everyone had a wonderful day yesterday. It was quiet around here for the most part, just my stepson and I enjoying a football game and gorging on his mama’s culinary expertise. It all seems so pointless somehow. Two weeks of preparation, two days of getting ready for family, and in a half hour it’s over. Now comes four weeks of shopping, decorating, wrapping, tree buying and installation, and in a matter of hours it’s over. Nothing else to look forward to for four months but cold, ice, and snow. It’s called life and we learn to live it.

There is a mix of regular political nonsense leavened with some warm items to help your digestion today.

Trumps Spend Thanksgiving Serving Meals To Active Duty Armed Forces

“Incredible people, you’ve done an incredible job,” Trump said.

The First Lady jumped in to tell the group: “Happy Thanksgiving!” She smiled and waved with both hands as she spoke.

The president offered to take questions from the Coast Guard, although no one spoke up — which the president says he loves.


JUST THINK… A FIRST LADY WHO DOESN’T NEED A BOOB BELT OR $500 SNEAKERS TO LOOK STUNNING (not saying the Wookie could, on the best day she ever had).

DEMOCRAT NEWS NETWORK: CNN Fails To Report These 24 Democrat Sex Scandals

All of the Democrat sex scandals that CNN has failed to report on have made news in 2017, with 19 of the 24 making news within the last month.

THE MEDIA GOES TO GREAT LENGTHS TO AVOID TALKING ABOUT THE 800 POUND HAM-HANDED GORILLA IN THE ROOM.
When CNN is not busy giving President Donald Trump 93% negative coverage, covering for Islamic terrorists, botching gun reports, or being sued by over 200 African-Americans for racial discrimination, they are busy covering for Democrats across the United States by not reporting on scandals.

Below are 24 recent Democratic sex scandals that CNN has failed to report on their website (documentation showing CNN did not cover the scandals is provided at the bottom of this report).

THIS STORY IS AT ONCE BOTH HEARTWARMING AND INFURIATING.
New Jersey Woman Raises More Than $200K for Homeless Man Who Bought Her Gasoline
Kate McClure, a 27-year-old from New Jersey, told the Inquirer that as she was traveling to Philadelphia to visit a friend, her car suddenly ran out of gasoline. McClure said she was nervous and scared, as the neighborhood where her car stopped was sketchy.
“My heart was beating out of my chest,” McClure said. “I didn’t know what the heck to do.”

After calling her boyfriend, 38-year-old Mark D’Amico, who promised to come get her, McClure said a homeless man named Johnny approached her car to help.

They learned he is Johnny Bobbitt Jr., 34, from the Raleigh, N.C., area. He was an ammunition technician in the Marines. His Facebook page includes photos and posts that trace a romantic relationship from its happier days to its 2014 breakup

According to McClure, Johnny — who takes care of two other men under a bridge in the area — told her to lock her car doors and that he would return.

Johnny told her to sit tight and that he would spend his last $20 to buy gas a few blocks away. “He said, ‘I’ll be back. Trust me,’” McClure told the Inquirer.

Ten minutes after speaking with McClure, Johnny returned with a gallon of gas that he had bought with his last $20.

Johnny told McClure that he is interested in working at the Robbinsville, New Jersey, Amazon warehouse so he can get health benefits and make a decent living.

Though McClure and D’Amico continued passing through to see Johnny in Philadelphia, they still felt they could do more. That is when they decided to fund raise to help change Johnny’s life, setting up a GoFundMe page that has far exceeded the $10,000 goal the couple originally set.

“He knows where he’s at and he knows what he has to do to dig himself out,” D’Amico told the Inquirer. “It’s almost impossible to dig himself out if he has nobody and nothing. If we can raise enough money to set him up for a few months, where he doesn’t have to worry about where he’s going to sleep and what he’s going to eat, then he can get a job and go about his life.”

A VETERAN, NOT UNLIKE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF OTHERS THAT HAVE FALLEN ON HARD TIMES AND ARE LARGELY IGNORED WHILE LIBERALS PISS AND MOAN ABOUT THE “RIGHTS” OF ILLEGALS WE SPEND $100 BILLION A YEAR TO PROVIDE A FREE RIDE TO WHILE THEY CONTRIBUTE NOTHING. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THE HOMELESS VETS, MANY WITH DRUG OR MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, NOT TO GET THE CARE THEY EARNED. OK, I’M DONE NOW.

Union Walmart protests fizzle as a Black Friday tradition
IT REALLY GALLS THE LIBERALS THAT THEY CAN’T BULLY WALMART EMPLOYEES INTO UNIONIZING SO THEY CAN GRAB ALL THAT DUES MONEY TO HELP ELECT DEMOCRATS… PITY.

Unions have stopped trying to use Walmart’s day-after-Thanksgiving ‘Black Friday’ sales to launch public relations blitzes against the corporation, effectively conceding that the once-high profile efforts were making little headway toward organizing a union at the nation’s largest employer

Ritter said the union had determined that Black Friday — traditionally the kick-off of Christmas shopping season and a major event for retailers — was no longer as big of an event due to the growth of online sales.

‘Black Liberation’ Group Vows To Shut Down Black Friday Shopping To Fight Racism

ANOTHER REASON TO SHOP ONLINE.

Black Liberation Front-Seattle, an “assertive” group aimed at fighting racism, also launched a four-hour demonstration called “BlackLivesMatterFriday 4.0 -Racism. It Stops With Me” to show the country that racism is unacceptable.

Approximately 10,000 people have marked “interested” on social media for this event, and over 1,000 people have said they plan on attending the Friday demonstration.

THERE ARE THOSE WHO WANT TO TEAR DOWN AND THOSE WHO WANT TO LIFT UP
‘Miracle Park’ to be built in Rock Hill will be designed specifically for people with special needs


The so-called Miracle Park is a dream of the York County Disabilities Foundation. Last week, the foundation presented the idea to Rock Hill’s City Council, pushing the project forward.

The Miracle Park would sit on a 15-acre piece of land, partially on the current “Winthrop Park.” The land is owned by both the City of Rock Hill (7 acres) and Winthrop University (8 acres). City Council agreed to lease the land to the non-profit for $1 a year, so the Foundation could purse the Miracle Park.

“A miracle field is basically a field made of synthetic rubber so that people with disabilities and wheel chairs can play on these fields,” Norman said.

[CtH: One of my offspring took her kidlets to a park like this and said it made her weepy seeing all the disabled kids having so much FUN.  She’s like me … cries when she’s overflowing with joy.]

Nebraska Approves Keystone XL Pipeline

ONE WORD: MAGA!! (actually an acronym) [CtH: I think it’s an acronym that has become a word, though I dunno if any dictionaries have accepted it!  Other words Trump has added to our lexicon:  bigly and yuge.  I’d like to include covfefe, but I have no idea how to pronounce it or what it actually means! LOL]

The Nebraska Public Service Commission approved the Keystone XL pipeline, removing the last regulatory hurdle for the oil project after years of former President Barack Obama’s blocking the pipeline’s approval.

President Donald Trump quickly reversed Obama’s decision after taking office. Trump has pursued an energy policy of “energy dominance,” which sought to undo burdensome energy regulations and open up America’s energy resources.

Student Who Stole A MAGA Hat Off Someone’s Head Faces Year In Jail

When Vitale asked for his hat back, she said “F*** your freedom of speech boy, your freedom of speech is literally killing a lot of people out there, your hats like these that promote laws and legislation that literally kill and murder people of color.”

‘CBS This Morning’ wants Oprah to fill in for fired Charlie Rose: report
SERIOUSLY?

“CBS This Morning” is reportedly “begging” Oprah Winfrey to fill in for former co-host Charlie Rose, who was fired from the network after sexual harassment allegations.

“They are begging Oprah to fill in,” a source told Page Six. “Not full time … But they are hoping she’ll do one day, two days, one hour, fill in ’til Christmas. Anything.”

“Unless you get a superstar [on the show], it’s always going to be, ‘Charlie’s missing,'” an insider told the publication.

Hillary Clinton: I Couldn’t Run A Real Change Campaign Because Of Obama

HOPE AND CHANGE! HOPE AND CHANGE! IT GOT MY SORRY ASS ELECTED TWICE
HILLARY CLINTON:

… I have high regard for the campaign that we put together, and all of the people who were working in it so hard. But I think it is fair to say that it was hard to break through.  I’ve said a few times that this was the first reality TV campaign. My opponent was the first reality TV candidate, and I was, for better or worse, the candidate of reality. And I think it was a shortcoming of the campaign that the work that I’ve done my entire life. The passion I feel for helping people, the record that I have of doing just that never really could break through.

THE FACT I’M A LYING, GREEDY, CORRUPT SKANK WITHOUT ANY MORAL COMPASS WHATEVER, AND EVERYBODY KNEW IT, HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MY GETTING A GRADE ‘A’ BEATDOWN.

O’Malley: Obama Devastated Democratic Party Like a ‘Bad Forest Fire’

Wednesday on ABC’s “Powerhouse Politics” podcast, 2016 Democratic presidential candidate and former Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-MD) said former President Barack Obama’s decision to set up Organizing for America rather than “infusing” his energy into the Democratic Party devastated the party on state and local levels like a “bad forest fire.”

Lock Up Lois Lerner
I’VE BEEN REPULSED BY THIS SNEERING HAG SINCE THE FIRST TIME SHE TESTIFIED BEFORE CONGRESS.  SHE COMMITTED FELONIES AND ABUSED HER POWER WITH NO FEAR OF CONSEQUENCES BECAUSE SHE WAS DOING OBAMA’S BIDDING AND HE PROTECTED HER.  THEN TRUMP APPOINTED A MILQUETOAST WHO PROCEEDED TO RECUSE HIMSELF FROM DOING HIS JOB.

Former IRS official Lois Lerner and her deputy are asking a federal court to keep their testimonies in the Tea Party targeting case private forever, over fear of death threats and potential harm to their families if the documents go public.

Only the lawless Lois Lerner would feel threatened by legal proceedings initiated by her abuse of government power. Calling her and her IRS co-conspirators “criminal thugs” is not a threat but an understatement. What she fears is not violence but that the truth about her crimes, what she did and what she got away with, will be finally and fully known and that she would no longer be able to hide behind a bogus and fraudulent Fifth Amendment pleading before Congress.

Some honesty from the Left

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case that could result in “Right to Work” applying to public sector employees, possibly resulting in no mandatory dues payments to public sector unions.

Democrats would have us believe that their support for unions (which includes opposition to “Right to Work” laws) is All About Workers’ Rights. ThinkProgress Justice Editor Ian Millhiser reveals the Democrats’ real agenda in this surprisingly honest tweet.

Chicago Teachers Union Encouraging Teachers to Cut Class, Attend May Day Marches

But they really care about the kids…
While the Chicago Teachers Union isn’t calling for an illegal strike on Monday, as it threatened to do, it is asking that its members attend that afternoon’s Chicago May Day march, activities surrounding it begin with school rallies at 7:30am.
The CTU we all know are “for the kids,” but how can they be for those kids when they are rabble-rousing on May 1? Yes, May Day 2017 is a school day.

Congress agrees on $1 trillion deal to fund government until October 1
SCHUMER CALLS IT A GOOD DEAL… THAT’S A REAL BAD SIGN
The hard-won deal could be the first major piece of bipartisan legislation to be pushed through Congress since President Trump took office, and would provide billions of dollars for the Pentagon — but would not provide funds for his ballyhooed Mexican wall.
The deal, if passed by the full House and Senate, would also keep funding for Planned Parenthood through September and add $2 billion to the National Institutes of Health, as well as providing extra cash for opioid treatment and college grants.
“This agreement is a good agreement for the American people and takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Indicted Fmr Dem Rep. Corrine Brown Spent Campaign Cash After Primary Loss
Expensed $13,476 in petty cash, hotels, travel after electoral defeat
Brown and her chief of staff, Elias “Ronnie” Simmons, were indicted in July 2016 on 24 counts of fraud stemming from a sham foundation created by the former congresswoman.
More than $800,000 was deposited into Brown’s Virginia-based foundation, One Door for Education, which spent only $1,200 on charity.
Federal authorities found that Brown, Elias, and Carla Wiley, the foundation’s president, spent $200,000 of the group’s funds on luxury vacations, NFL tickets, plane tickets, car repairs, and lavish events.

“Comedian” Hasan Minaj Big Flop at White House Correspondents Dinner

When one thinks of insult comics, the late funnyman Don Rickles immediately comes to mind.
[Rickles’] humor is so rude, in such bad taste, that it offends no one—it is too offensive to be offensive.
Contrast Minaj’s material to that of Rickles, who only on occasion would make a slighting remark about a fellow entertainer or politician in absentia. Minaj apparently stuck to shopworn jabs prepared long before the President and his staff announced they would not attend this year’s dinner. “
Unlike Rickles, Minaj is no “Mr. Warmth.” At least based on audience reaction, his dragging, staccato-like delivery left many barbs hanging in midair, leaving listeners wondering when they would drop. And to make matters worse, by taking multiple shots at non-attendees, both living and dead, Minaj’s quips quickly veered off into the offensive. This became most evident when the comedian evoked none other than Rickles himself, who died just over three weeks ago:
“Don Rickles died just so you wouldn’t ask him to do this gig, alright? RIP to Don Rickles, the only Donald with skin thick enough to take a joke like that.”

“I do the show for me and for people like me, and I don’t really care how others see it, quite frankly…. We need catharsis, a place to analyze things in a different way. we see things through a different filter. We just need to break it down.”
That lack of ability to consider another point of view could explain her answer to the question, “Is there a smug liberal problem?”
“I don’t think there is.”

So much news!

I was adding these to the comments section of Pete’s 2/16 post, but it’s gotten too long and is taking forever to refresh.  So, starting with what I posted after midnight …

Highlights from Trump’s presser.

“Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions today asking Sessions to consider convening a grand jury or bringing charges against Hillary Clinton’s former IT guy, Bryan Pagliano. Pagliano was subpoenaed to testify before the committee last year but refused to appear on two occasions. After the second refusal, the Oversight Committee voted to hold Pagliano in contempt.”

This is why the big unions and their Democrat lapdogs fight so hard against Right to Work laws.  The unions have become the evil they were originally founded to combat and workers know it.

Weeks after the House Minority leader blasted President Donald Trump for pledging to investigate voter fraud, a federal appellate court has ruled that a Peruvian immigrant can be deported from the U.S. for illegally voting in a federal election.

This Makes My Blood Boil

I AM SO SICK OF THIS SHIT I COULD PUKE!!!

These leftist bastards get their rocks off bullying people for no better reason than they can’t always get their own way.
Betsy DeVos, the new Education Secretary made a stop for a conference at a Title I school, for mostly lower income students and was greeted with the usual pack of mouthbreathing vermin.

Protesters initially block DeVos from entering DC school
DeVos later made it into Jefferson Middle School Academy in Southwest D.C. for her first visit as secretary to a public school. This was only after a teacher/parent “vigil” blocked the road by the front entrance, and a handful of Black Lives Matter protesters caused problems when DeVos tried to enter through the back entrance.

Protesters shouted “shame, shame” at the secretary as she was led back into her vehicle. One holding a Black Lives Matter sign then stood in front of the van, but was scolded by fellow protesters to “let her leave,” and he stepped aside.

The disruption is the latest in a series of protests against Trump administration officials and policies. DeVos’ nomination was fiercely opposed by teachers unions and Democratic lawmakers in large part over her long support for charter schools and other public school alternatives.

Protesters block DeVos from entering DC school

“Keep giving money to senators and buying your way to the position,” one man holding a Black Lives Matter sign says to her, according to a video from ABC reporter Sam Sweeney. “I hope you’re proud of yourself.”

“Go back,” the protestor yells and she enters the car. “Shame! Shame! Shame!”

DeVos was reportedly able to eventually enter the school for an event that included D.C. schools chancellor.
The GOP mega-donor was met with fierce opposition from Democrats and teachers unions who voiced opposition to her support for charter schools and tuition vouchers.

Senate Democrats held an all-night debate to protest DeVos’s nomination ahead of her confirmation vote.

“This is a sad day for children,” the American Federation of Teachers president said in a statement following DeVos’s confirmation.

IT’S GOING TO BE LIKE THIS ANYTIME A TRUMP APPOINTEE LEAVES HIS HOUSE. THEY’LL BE HOUNDED, HARASSED, AND IN NEED OF ARMED SECURITY BECAUSE OF THIS MINDLESS, SOULLESS RABBLE.
DEVOS IS DESPISED BY THE UNIONS BECAUSE SHE INTENDS TO INITIATE VOUCHER PROGRAMS FOR LOW-INCOME STUDENTS, THREATENING THEIR HOBBY OF INDOCTRINATING CHILDREN RATHER THAN DO THE JOB OF TEACHING THEM.
I’M JUST SICK TO DEATH OF LIBERALS ASSAULTING ANYONE THEY DON’T AGREE WITH.
RANT OVER.

Doing What Comes Naturally

Two presidents; one current, one former. As water seeks its own level, so too do people ultimately settle into their comfort zone. What a difference a day makes. As a final FU to the country, Obama sent $221 million to Abbas and the Palestinian Authority. If you are worried about what he’s been doing the last three days, fear not…. he soldiers on.

Melania Trump Is Fashionable, But She’s Unlikely To Become A Fashion Icon Like Michelle Obama

Today, America gets a new First Lady. She’s beautiful – a former model! – with an impeccable wardrobe and the money to buy all the couture she wants. So why, when President Trump and his family are long out of the White House, and his administration is enshrined in the annals of history, will Michelle Obama – a woman with no connection to the fashion industry before she came into public view – be remembered as the more iconic of the two?

It’s simple. Becoming an icon is about more than just a pretty face and an international platform.


YEAH, A REAL FASHION ICON

Glad to see Obama go, Gulf Arabs expect Trump to counter Iran

Saudi Arabia in particular appears relieved at the departure of Barack Obama, who it felt considered Riyadh’s alliance with Washington less important than negotiating a deal in 2015 to neutralize Iran’s nuclear program.

The relationship is a pillar of the Middle East’s security balance. But it has suffered since Riyadh took issue with what it saw as Obama’s withdrawal from the region, and a perceived inclination towards Iran since the 2011 Arab uprisings.

Teamsters Respond to TPP Withdrawal – PRAISE TRUMP!
“The Teamsters Union has been on the frontline of the fight to stop destructive trade deals like the TPP, China PNTR, CAFTA and NAFTA for decades. Millions of working men and women saw their jobs leave the country as free trade policies undermined our manufacturing industry.
We take this development as a positive sign that President Trump will continue to fulfill his campaign promises in regard to trade policy reform and instruct the USTR to negotiate future agreements that protect American workers and industry.”

AFL-CIO Praises President Trump’s Move to Withdraw from TPP, Renegotiate NAFTA, Target Big Pharma
Trump’s populist appeal to American workers in states like Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Ohio was critical to his landslide electoral college victory, when he stunned the bi-coastal political, financial, and cultural elites in places like New York City, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles with a 306 electoral vote landslide win over Clinton on Nov. 8.

Trump Revives Reagan-Era Ban on Use of Foreign Aid for Abortion Counseling
Coming as one of Mr. Trump’s first executive orders, it was likely to please the anti-abortion lobby at home. But critics say it also symbolizes the new administration’s defiance of the women’s reproductive rights movement, an important force in the weekend protest marches in Washington and other cities that followed Mr. Trump’s inauguration.

Trump Wants To Cut Regulations By 75%
At the time Trump was sworn in on Friday, the Federal Register contained 89,535 regulations — many of which Republicans say are outdated and duplicative. Those regulations have piled up since the government’s rulebook launched in 1935.

Trump just made a vocal opponent of today’s ‘open internet’ laws the next FCC boss
While expected, the appointment aligns with signs that Trump’s FCC would roll back Obama-era policies — most notably the 2015 Open Internet Order, which set today’s net-neutrality rules.
Broadly speaking, those laws regulate the internet as a public utility. More practically, they’re meant to keep internet service providers from blocking or slowing down certain content — which could benefit services owned by an ISP itself — or forcing others to pay fees to receive preferential treatment.

Trump’s New CIA Director: “Jesus Christ Is The Only Solution For Our World”
Pompeo is a well-respected figure in the national security community. He is also an army veteran, and a staunch pro-life advocate.
Two years ago, Pompeo gave a church speech where he said Muslims who think Islam is “the only way” needed to be dealt with.
“These folks believe that it is religiously driven for them to wipe Christians from the face of the earth,” he added. “They abhor Christians,” he said of a small minority among Muslims.

The Sideshow Continues


Betsy DeVos, Trump’s nominee for Education Secretary, is currently being grilled as required before she can face a vote. Conservatives balked at first because she had been in favor of Common Core, the brainchild of leftists intent on completely controlling how students think. When she was first introduced, she declared her opposition to it. What is not in dispute is she is in favor of local control of schools and an advocate for vouchers for poor kids to escape the failing public system.

Betsy DeVos, Trump’s education pick, lauded as bold reformer, called unfit for job
The Senate education committee was deeply divided over ­President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for education secretary at her confirmation hearing Tuesday evening, with Democrats attacking Betsy DeVos as unfit for the job and Republicans defending her as a bold reformer.

DeVos is an unusually polarizing nominee to helm the Education Department. She has lobbied for decades to expand charter schools and taxpayer-funded vouchers for private and religious schools, but she has no professional experience in public schools and has not held public office.

In his introduction of DeVos at Tuesday’s hearing, Joseph I. Lieberman, the Democratic nominee for vice president in 2000, argued that her status as an outsider is an asset.

The Democrat Party has been in the pocket of their most powerful ally, the teachers union, for decades. Quite naturally, they are doing their utmost to try to savage this nominee.

Gets Sanders to admits that free college isn’t free

Sanders also grilled DeVos about whether she was qualified for the post. The senator, who has received more than $140,000 from the National Education Association and American Federation of Teachers, questioned whether her family’s political donations played a role in the nomination.

“I don’t mean to be rude, but do you think if you were not a multi-billionaire, if your family has [sic] not made hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to the Republican Party that you would be sitting here today?” Sanders asked.

“As a matter of fact I do think that there would be that possibility. I have worked very hard on behalf of parents and children for the last almost 30 years,” she said.

Murray has received $129,000 from those unions, making her the third largest recipient of union cash behind Sen. Sanders and Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D., Wis.). The 11 Democrats on the committee have received nearly $740,000 from those unions.

Education Committee Dems Awash in Union Cash

The NEA spent more than $35 million to help Hillary Clinton and national Democrats in 2016, making it one of the top 10 biggest spenders in the country, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), an avowed socialist and Clinton’s sole serious challenger in the 2016 primary, has been the biggest career recipient of NEA money on the committee, raising more than $100,000 from the union’s PACs, employees, and members over the course of his career. Those donations have made NEA one of his 20 largest career contributors.

I DIDN’T BOTHER TO POST ANY MORE, SINCE THEY ALL HAVE THEIR TALKING POINTS FROM THE UNION AND THE PARTY.
