May Day 2017

May 1 doesn’t hold a great deal of significance except to communists and socialists. I just used the title because it was handy.

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.

Trump Trolls CBS’ John Dickerson To His Face: “I Love Your Show, I Call It Deface The Nation”

President Trump appeared on the CBS program “Face The Nation” on Sunday morning and had this terrific exchange with host, John Dickerson. Classic Trump and funny as hell.

‘A beer in one hand, a gun in the other’: Man kills 1, injures 7 at San Diego apartment pool
ALL THE COMMENTERS NOTICED THE LIGHTNING SPEED WITH WHICH MSN POINTED OUT THE SHOOTER WAS WHITE AND THE VICTIMS WERE BLACK. IT’S THE ONLY TIME RACE IS THE LEAST BIT RELEVANT.
The gunman, identified as Peter Selis, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police described him as a white male who may have lived in one of the buildings, and said all of the victims were African American or Hispanic. Police said they did not know whether race was a factor in the attack.

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.

President of The White House Correspondents’ Association Assures You That ‘We Are Not Fake News’

WHCA President, Jeff Mason, further stated “it is our job to report on facts and hold leaders accountable; that is who we are…”
So tell us, Mr. Mason, why didn’t you and your membership do your job for the past 8 years and chose instead to lie and cover-up for the lies and cover-ups of the corrupt Obama regime? You and your cohorts constantly push fake news.

“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.”
THIS IS A LITTLE BIT OF THAT UNFUNNY MUSLIM PUNK

Samantha Bee is a “Smug Liberal” Denier
I STUMBLED ACROSS THIS TRASH WHILE CHANNEL SURFING ONCE. TOOK ALL OF FOUR SECONDS TO FIGURE OUT ‘BEE’ WAS SHORT FOR BEE-OTCH.

“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.”

“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.

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%

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”

“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.

DeVos Grilled by Union-Funded Democrats
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.

BOOM! Betsy DeVos Shuts DOWN Bernie Sanders On “Free College”

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.

Late Night Television

When I first begin my daily foray into the world of the interwebs I always have the television on for background noise. It is very educational to see the wide array of wonderful products that are available thanks to our capitalist system. You can buy a pan that you can melt a plastic cup in and not have it stick (though if you’re serving melted plastic for dinner, don’t bother to invite me), you can cut the bottom out of a boat, replace it with a screen, spray some rubberized gunk on it, and fly through alligator-infested swamps, there is a spray that’s called something like ‘poo-gone’, or something. I mentioned it while the family was over for Christmas dinner — my kids all knew what it was (I raised them right) and today I saw a commercial for a lighted toilet so men wouldn’t miss the bowl if they went without turning on the light. American ingenuity is truly amazing.

Six NAACP protesters arrested after occupying Sen. Jeff Sessions’ office in Alabama

“Senator Sessions has callously ignored the reality of voter suppression but zealously prosecuted innocent civil rights leaders on trumped-up charges of voter fraud,” Brooks said in a statement ahead of his arrest.

Cabin Fever Settling In

Surfing the interwebs yesterday I came across a site that had Wisconsin fishing guides listed. There were several quite close to where I live who guide on the many lakes and rivers of Southeast Wisconsin. I’m considering several trips with RJ and my longtime fishing buddy. He has a boat, but the idea is to have a guide take you on a body of water you’re not familiar with, then you can go back on your own and have an idea where some good spots are. Lake Delavan is over 2,000 acres and Lake Geneva is over 5,000. That’s a lot of water to cover when you only have a short time. I contacted one guide through his Facebook page who is a Marine veteran and is also an EMT and has two other men who guide with him. He started fishing with his grandfather so he understands why I want to make some memories with RJ that he can share with his sons when I’m gone. It will only be about 4 agonizing months before ice out up North. I guess I’ll just have to wait until then.

Parting Regrets from the Loser’s Presidency
MY FRIEND WILLIE INSISTED OBAMA GOT WHERE HE IS COMPLETELY THROUGH HIS OWN HARD WORK. AFFIRMATIVE ACTION HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. IT’S CALLED POLITICAL IDOLATRY.
It is not certain that Barack Obama is the first president with African progenitors on adjacent branches of the ancestral tree. It is absolutely certain that he is the first president in American history who shot to the presidency on the rocket of race-based preferentialism. Mr. Obama became commander-in-chief without ever evidencing knowledge or even respect for the U.S. military because throughout his education and career, he enjoyed astronomical preferences above his peers, even above more qualified competitors, due not to his achievements, but to his bronzish mug. He in turn chose his wife and his attorneys general from his cohort beneficiaries of the peculiar institutions of affirmative action, the racialist hypersensitivity and preferencing that arose in the 1960s.

Clinton Lackey David Brock Caught ‘Money Laundering’
David Brock is everything normal people hate about politics. He’s a shady, shameless shill for Hillary Clinton who has made a fortune in the “political operative” industry by doing political operative-y things that contribute nothing of value to society. He’s also (allegedly) a paranoid coke fiend who travels with an armed security detail because he’s afraid snipers are going to get him.

Powerful labor union plans massive budget cuts in wake of Donald Trump victory
According to Henry, the cuts are a direct result of Mr. Trump’s victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton in November’s election, along with the GOP’s continued control of Congress. With Mr. Trump and his Senate Republican allies poised to nominate dozens of judges, including a new Supreme Court justice, the SEIU fears its ability to collect dues from members will soon be significantly curtailed.

[CtH: Excellent news!  The SEIU has been forcing workers to cough up dues that they use to promote Democrat politicians, despite workers who are opposed to said politicians.]

Planned Parenthood Rakes In Donations From More Than 300K People Since Trump Elected
One man wrote a check for $10,000 to an organization that helps women get elected to office, saying he was “embarrassed” that Donald Trump won the presidential election.

Someone else walked into the office of an organization advocating for immigrant rights and handed over a bag of cash he had just collected from members of his local community civics group.

[CtH: I remember hearing that pro-life organizations experienced similar surges in giving following the election of Clinton and Obama.]

Federal Appeals Court Invites Trump’s AG To Enter Clinton Email Scandal
THE DEMOCRATS WILL SAVAGE THIS VERY GOOD MAN, WHOM THEY’VE KNOWN FOR 20 YEARS, JUST TO CONTINUE THEIR TEMPER TANTRUMS. IMAGINE IF HILLARY WERE TO ACTUALLY BE INDICTED.

The court provides a new opening to Trump and his attorney general designate, Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions. A congressional vote confirming Sessions could occur as early as Jan. 10, but Senate Democrats indicated they will put up a stiff fight to defeat the nomination

Shattuck: Ego-driven fantasy another bogey for Obama
We’ve had eight years of “fake news” distorting the culture so much that overt, critical speech about this president became a dangerous and daunting prospect to everyday Americans. So they voted against him and his programs in a more roundabout fashion.

They are afraid to tamper with the legacy of the man himself but are more than comfortable chucking everything he stands for into the political dumpster.

Russia: Obama signed defense bill to create problems for Trump

Rachel Maddow Pessimistic for Media, Says It May ‘Crumble’ Under Trump
Last week Maddow was on NBC’s Late Night with host Seth Meyers, who asked her if liberals had any reasons to be optimistic about the new administration. Maddow hesitated before responding: “I have bright red shoes, which is very festive. … I have a family I love and nice dogs.”

Obama Selling Out Israel

Congress Moves To Cut U.S. Funding To United Nations In Wake Of Anti-Israel Vote

Lame duck Obama has deliberately created a diplomatic crisis with our close ally, Israel, just weeks before he’s shown the door. Hopefully, these disgraceful acts will result in the end of the ‘2 State Peace Process’ and a defunding of the U.N.

Obama’s Racist Attacks Against White Working Class Caused Historic Democrat Party Collapse

Obama also blamed Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, and the NRA for distracting the country from his message of “hope and change”, particularly during the holiday season.  Obama defended the robbers and hosted Black Lives Matter in the White House.

Obama will be missed when he leaves the White House…by the criminals and thugs.
For the rest of America – January 20th cannot get here soon enough.

The entertainment elite’s inaugural boycott will backfire — again
Kid Rock is currently the biggest name scheduled to appear.

And liberals are giddy. Because they still don’t get it.

As liberals continue to draw cultural lines that leave conservatives out, they have to notice that it’s translating to ballot-box losses. Republicans don’t just control the presidency, the House, and the Senate, but nearly two-thirds of statehouses and a majority of governorships.

The all-encompassing liberalism in popular culture might not be hurting the performers’ financial bottom lines (so far), but it’s certainly not doing anything to help their political causes, either. As we learned this election, we ignore whole segments of the population at our peril.

The Art of Getting It Done

There was a discussion on Redeye Radio this morning on the subject of the democrat prospects of gaining any ground in two years is bleak. Sorry I can’t find the piece they were reading from, but here’s the gist:

The Democrat Party is bound to the climate alarmists and green energy scammers.  Of the eight Rust Belt states, they lost all but one, and Trump came within one point of winning deep-blue Minnesota.

The working people in those states have watched as more and more environmental regulations have pushed once-thriving industries out and more and more of their hard-earned tax money has gone to subsidize wind and solar companies that cannot sustain themselves without government handouts.

Apparently the leftists are more worried about offending the Greens than they are of being a viable party.

Meanwhile, Trump has hit the ground running, naming people who know business to right the ship of state as more and more businesses are poised to return jobs to the U.S. anticipating a cut in corporate taxes and the easing of crushing regulations.

Donald Trump And The Art Of Getting It Done: Not president yet, he’s already restoring hope in the American dream.

They also told us that globalization is an irreversible trend, that it’s therefore impossible to rescue manufacturing jobs, that the economy and the world are in a certain order and that only the foolish or naive would seek to overturn it.
Then Mr. Trump arrived on the scene.
For a new hire who doesn’t start work for another six weeks, he has been a whirling dervish of decision-making, deal-making and status quo-busting.
The man hasn’t even clocked in yet, and he’s already saving American jobs, reassuring allies, striking fear and anxiety in our enemies and standing for freedom and free enterprise.

Trump Asks for List of All Companies Planning on Leaving US – Will Call Each One Individually


Last week Donald Trump warned companies that were planning on leaving the United States.
CNN reported:  “Companies are not going to leave the U.S. anymore without consequences,” Trump said Thursday at the Indiana plant where the company makes furnaces.
Trump said that those consequences would include paying higher tariffs on imports. Carrier announced in February that it would lay off workers and move those jobs to Mexico.

US Steel CEO hopes to bring back jobs they were forced to let go during ‘depressive’ era…THOUSANDS of them
The American steel industry may bring back thousands of jobs now that Donald Trump will be president.
Mario Longhi, the CEO of US Steel Corporation, said the domestic steel industry may be able to rehire up to 10,000 employees who were laid off during the recent economic downturn.
The steel industry has laid off more than 16,000 workers since January 2015, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Longhi blamed the firings on cheap foreign steel products being illegally dumped in the United States.

Trump Appreciates How Work And Self-Esteem Are Related

THIS IS A SIMPLE CONCEPT THE LEFT CONTINUES TO IGNORE

Donald Trump seems to have intuitively understood that a lot of working class Americans are demoralized. But whereas the solution from liberals was free money — and the message from conservatives was that everyone should be an entrepreneur — most Americans don’t want to collect welfare or start a small business, they just want jobs.
It’s a simple, yet profound, concept. As Arthur Brooks wrote back in 2010, “Earned success gives people a sense of meaning about their lives. And meaning also is a key to human flourishing.”

Even anti-Trump working-class voters are having second thoughts
Robert James stood outside the Carrier plant just before the president-elect addressed workers at the refrigeration and heating assembly factory.  James would never dream of voting Republican: “For all of my life the Democrats have been the party of the working guy, had my back. But if I am being really honest, and this is tough to admit, but I can’t remember the last time they did anything to improve the dignity and value of my job” — a point that didn’t really crystallize for him until it became personal: until his job was saved. By a Republican.

How Union Bosses Sold Out Their Workers
The 2016 election exposed deep divisions in America, but none deeper than that between the leadership of organized labor and its membership. Union bosses spent some $100 million in member dues to try and elect Hillary Clinton and other Democrats across the country. It wasn’t money well-spent.

Don’t buy the lie that Obama’s leaving behind a healthy economy
After eight years of blaming America’s problems on George W. Bush, the press that got the election wrong is rolling out a new line — that President Obama is handing President-elect Donald Trump a booming economy.
That takes some brass.
The truth is that the Obama years have been among America’s worst for the economy. His eight years will go down in history as the Great Recession, even though for much, even most, of the span, we weren’t technically in a recession.
It just felt that way. And no wonder. Obama’s is the only modern presidency that failed to show a single year of growth above 3 percent, a point Trump stressed during the campaign (and that was conceded even by the website Politifact).
Plus, the Obama economy failed to prosper even though the Federal Reserve had its pedal to the metal. Its quantitative easing, $2 trillion balance-sheet expansion and zero-interest-rate policy all produced zilch.
