In Case You Haven’t Noticed

President Trump has had a busy week. Last Monday he named his choice for the next Supreme Court Justice. The next day he headed for the NATO summit in Brussels, where he took command. Then he was off to England, where he met both PM Theresa May and Her Highness. Now he’s off to meet one-on-one with Putin. Obama spent most of his time golfing, vacationing on somebody else’s property, or giving away America’s treasure trying to buy good will from terrorists. Now the dems are trying to tell Trump what to do. He’s got this:

Media, Democrats Want Trump to Cancel Putin Meeting, or Include Others
The president has not set out publicly what his goals in the meeting would be, causing further consternation to journalists and the opposition — though he said last week at a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May that he would bring up Russia’s election meddling.
May backed up Trump, noting that he had responded strongly to Russia’s alleged nerve agent attack against against a former spy and his daughter in Britain earlier this year.

Euthanasia in the UK

Leftists who support nationalizing ALL of our health care into one, government-run operation claim this is the only “compassionate” choice. Click “continue reading” to hear how that’s working out for the Brits, who opted for this kind of system many years ago.

Brexit: Why Britain Left the European Union

This is really good.

Is the European Union good for Europe? Or would Europeans be better off without it? Nigel Farage, a leader of the United Kingdom’s Brexit movement, shares his view.

Thursday Mashup

Just a smorgasbord of things today.

My stepson is 36 and he and some of his friends were on Facebook yesterday talking about “the old days” and how good things were back then. Being the old grump I am, with all my filters long since gone,  I had to inject myself. I simply commented that they weren’t old enough to have any ‘good old days’ yet. But wait, it will come faster than they could ever imagine.

Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey Storm Al Franken’s Office Demanding His Resignation
Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey stormed Senator Al Franken’s D.C. office Wednesday, demanding the embattled lawmaker resign over multiple sexual harassment allegations against him. Reporter Melanie Morgan, a Franken accuser, joined Broaddrick and Willey. Of course, Broaddrick and Willey are two of former President Bill Clinton’s most famous accusers.
After a few minutes of waiting for Franken, Morgan shouts, “Don’t be a coward, come out and talk to us!”
“Speak to us! We have something to say to you!” Morgan says.
Franken’s handlers then tell the women that he’s busy and will not have time to meet with them, prompting Morgan to recount allegations against the then-comedian. Franken allegedly stalked Morgan after they disagreed on the OMB’s budget numbers during a taping of ABC’s late night show Politically Incorrect in 2000.
Capitol Hill police then show up to Franken’s office, demanding the group of women leave.
“This is a place of business,” the officers say.
THE LITTLE WEASEL WAS HIDING BEHIND THE DOOR

Destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism: Trump Hits Back At Theresa May
May condemned Trump earlier Wednesday for retweeting three videos from the right-wing group Britain First that purported to show Muslims attacking Europeans, breaking a statue of the Virgin Mary, and beating someone to death.
Trump retweeting these videos has lead to a firestorm of media criticism. MSNBC labelled Britain First a “white nationalist” group continuously throughout the day.
CNN’s Dana Bash also claimed that the “only people who are supporting what the president did are racists and fascists and bigots,” something that gave her a literal “stomach ache.”
THEY KEEP REFERRING TO BRITAIN FIRST AS A “FAR-RIGHT” GROUP AND CLAIM THESE VIDEOS ARE FAKE.
EUROPE STILL REFUSES TO ACCEPT THAT THEIR WELCOMING IN MILLIONS OF THESE MURDEROUS PIGS WILL END IN THEIR DESTRUCTION.

President Trump: ‘Investigate’ Joe Scarborough’s Dead Congressional Intern
THIS WAS A STUPID MOVE. ON A DAY IT WAS ANNOUNCED THE GDP HIT 3.3%, WHICH HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN TOUTING, HE’S GIVING CREDIBILITY TO SOMEONE MOST PEOPLE HAVE NEVER HEARD OF.
“So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin?” Trump tweeted, adding, “And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”
http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2017/11/29/president-trump-investigate-joe-scarboroughs-dead-congressional-intern/

Tired of all the winning? 3Q GDP revised upward to higher than expected 3.3%
Yet there is a connection. The free market is happily responding to thousands and thousands of regulations being cut, an end to business being targeted as the enemy, and the prospect of fairer taxes. What it means is jobs, jobs, jobs, and lots of investment bringing more growth.
The Obama years were years of subpar growth, where GDP never broke the 3.0% growth line in any quarter. Averaged in with the Beltway bureaucrat bonanza, the weak, anemic Obama-era figures reflect how much was lost around the rest of the country – as money went to Washington, and voters grew poorer. This is the cash the Ohios, the West Virginias, the Pennsylvanias – and other neglected states – sent, virtually all of whose voters defiantly cast their ballots in 2016 for Trump.
It’s what normal people call change.

Case shows judges matter

“A U.S. District Court judge in Washington on Tuesday handed a big victory to President Donald Trump, ruling in favor of the administration in its bid to install White House budget director Mick Mulvaney as acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau,” Politico reported this evening.
When Trump took office, he issued two executive orders to halt travel with seven, and then six, countries. Obama appointees blocked the orders. The Supreme Court eventually stepped in and let the orders go through, unmolested.
That was judicial activism. Those Obama-nauts exceeded their authority.
I keep bringing up judicial appointments because unfortunately the courts have become the dominant branch of the federal government

Members Of Congress And Media “Stunned” That Trump Is Still Standing & Fighting Back
He wasn’t supposed to win. But he did.
He wasn’t supposed to have survived the onslaught of media backlash since taking office. But he has.
Today members of Congress and the media are said to be amazed by Donald Trump’s resiliency and ability to continue fighting back against the ongoing effort to diminish and/or destroy his presidency.

Hillary Clinton: Trump’s “Obsessed” With Me Because I Got More Votes Than Him
“Well, he’s a little obsessed with me, but I think it’s partly his own ego because he knows I got more votes and he knows that there are questions about the election that deserve answers,” Clinton said in the interview. “And he knows I’m still speaking out, I haven’t retreated under a rock somewhere.”

Another top House Democrat took $50K from taxpayers to keep a former staffer quiet
Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva’s secret deal with a former female staffer was revealed by The Washington Times on Monday. The payout was negotiated by the House Employment Counsel, the body’s attorney, and cost taxpayers $48,395.
The settlement, however, may have violated House rules, The Times reported. It’s against House rules for a lawmaker to retain “an employee who does not perform duties for the offices of the employing authority commensurate with the compensation such employee receives.”

How Hateful Are the Democrats? This Hateful

WHEN I WROTE A POST THE OTHER DAY COMPARING THE TWO WHITE HOUSES, I KNEW SHE WOULD BE SAVAGED BY THE SAME PRESS THAT CALLED THE WATER BUFFALO A “FASHION ICON.”

You can’t make this stuff up: Vogue, a reliable Democratic Party outlet, has gone crazy over First Lady Melania Trump’s White House Christmas decorations:
Melania Trump unveiled the White House holiday decorations on Monday, which are, as some people on the internet have noticed, very, very white.
White decorations at Christmas? The horror!
This is truly beyond the pale: In a year during which many have speculated that Melania hates her husband and does not want to be First Lady at all (a claim that has recently resurfaced), Melania’s White House Christmas could be interpreted as a snowy and desolate manifestation of her own isolation, which begs the question: Is she trying to tell us something?
You have to see it for yourself, or you would never believe how nutty–speaking of mental institutions–today’s Democrats have become.
Vogue goes on to assemble some of the “best reactions to Melania’s White House creations.” All of which are sick. Here is just one example:

Reports: The U.S. Embassy Move to Jerusalem is Happening
ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS I THOUGHT ABOUT THE NIGHT WE WERE DELIVERED FROM TYRANNY WAS HOW IT LIFTED THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHO SUFFERED UNDER THE DISDAIN FROM A PRESIDENT WHO HATED THEM JUST AS MUCH AS HE HATED WHITE AMERICANS
Israeli officials are reportedly expecting US President Donald Trump to make a landmark announcement in the coming days regarding the move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognizing the highly-sensitive holy city as Israel’s capital, according to a local TV report on Wednesday.
The report comes just a day after Trump’s vice-president Mike Pence stated that the President was “actively considering” how and when to move the US embassy.

Team Hillary Clinton cheers Matt Lauer’s firing, says he was mean to her
Another person whose interview with Trump was ridiculously soft and interview with Hillary was incredibly tough: Matt Lauer,” tweeted former Clinton aide Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress.
Lauer came under fire from Team Clinton after he repeatedly pressed the Democratic presidential nominee in a live candidate forum about her controversial emails sent as secretary of state through a private server.
His tactics were called sexist.

CNN’s Jim Acosta ROASTED for Fake ‘Fact Check’ About ‘Pocahontas’ Being a Racial Slur
CNN’s Jim Acosta never learns. Instead of reporting the facts, something Acosta’s network is challenged at doing, the “reporter,” tries to play ‘Mr. Moral Authority,’ and fails every single time.
After Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied the term ‘Pocahontas,’ used by the President in reference to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at an event with Navajo Code Talkers, Acosta ‘fact checked,’ that the term is in fact racist. Acosta provided no proof of a fact check, of course.
“WH press sec says “Pocahontas” is not a racial slur. (Fact check: it is.),” tweeted Acosta.
After Acosta’s non-existent fact check, he was roasted on Twitter.

London Bridge Has Fallen Down

By now you’ve all heard of the latest terror attack in the Muslim paradise formerly known as London. With blissfully ignorant victims and unarmed police, they’re ridiculously easy pickings for slaughter. A van crashed into a crowd of people on the London Bridge and the spawn from Hell jumped out of the back and began stabbing victims and slashing throats. The terrorists moved on from there to 2 other venues before three of them were shot dead. It is not known how many are still at large.

Police stating obvious now, that it may have been a terror attack.
ONLY LIBERALS HAVE TROUBLE ADMITTING THE EXISTENCE OF TERRORISM
THE CROWD THREW CHAIRS AT TERRORISTS AS UNARMED COPS FLED THE SCENE. OFFICIALS OFFERED THIS ADVICE TO VICTIMS:

[CtH: I wonder if the sanctimonious anti-gun Brits will stop wagging their fingers at us after this.]

PRESIDENT TRUMP UNLEASHED A TWEET STORM LAST NIGHT, RENEWING HIS CALL FOR A TRAVEL BAN:

NBC tweeted about it, but refused to retweet it claiming what was said was ‘unconfirmed’. How are ‘fears’ that that’s what was unconfirmed?

[CtH: Yeah, cuz really … THEY have never invented “fears” and “concerns” out of thin air and turned them into talking points. /sarc]

President Trump assailed political correctness, gun control supporters and the mayor of London on Sunday, arguing that the world needed to be more serious about fighting terrorism a day after seven people were killed and dozens more wounded in the latest attack in Britain.

“We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people,” he wrote on Twitter. “If we don’t get smart it will only get worse.”

Mr. Trump targeted Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, scorning him for trying to reassure his people. “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!” Mr. Trump wrote.

“Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now?” he wrote on Sunday morning. “That’s because they used knives and a truck!”

On Saturday night, he wrote, “We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!”

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/after-britain-attack-trump-unleashes-a-twitter-storm/ar-BBBYupU?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=UE12DHP

[CtH: When I heard who is mayor of London, I had to wonder if the Brits actually believe prog twaddle that we somehow bring it on ourselves and that hugging it out and loving on them will make extremist Muslims stop planning and executing terror attacks.]

MSNBC Host Wonders if There’s ‘Risk of Overreaction’ by Authorities Responding to London Terrorism

Man Calls Out Islamophobia During London Terror Attack

[CtH: Did they give the VICTIMS even five SECONDS of their oh-so-compassionate concern?!]

FROM DIANNY AT PATRIOT RETORT:

The time for Tea Lights and Hashtags is over

Another terrorist attack in London. More bodies broken and dead.

And the Hashtag Rapid Response Team is on the case.

Because apparently in the West today, a syrupy hashtag delivered with pinpoint accuracy is the best defense against Islamist terror.

I mean, it’s worked so well thus far, hasn’t it?

http://patriotretort.com/time-tea-lights-and-hashtags/

[CtH: So … what?  The Muslims are just really HOT?  I mean … yeah, that makes total sense, seeing as they come from the Middle East and Africa, and oh wait … London is cold and rainy.  So maybe they’re too cold and they miss the sun.  No, that can’t be right.]

Dancing with the Devil

Being delusional is dangerous. Being oblivious can be fatal. For decades the whole of Europe, including the U.K., has welcomed tens of millions of Muslims with open arms. They refuse to assimilate, live by their own laws, and are responsible for most of the violent crime in the countries they infest. Muhammed is the most popular baby name in England, and London even elected a Muslim mayor who warned them that terror is coming. When you dance with the devil there is a price to be paid.
The Daily Mail U.K. has extensive coverage, as does every other organization. Of course, the jihadists are celebrating the slaughter of a bunch of children and the left is looking to somehow blame Trump and empathize with the bloody maggots. I’m going to post some of the more disgusting things in the reply section so, hopefully, it won’t take so long to load.

Churchill is back

From Legal Insurrection:

The removal of a bust of Winston Churchill from the White House was one of Obama’s earliest moves to demote the special relationship with Britain. It was symbolic in so many ways, and served as the gateway drug for his world apology tour to follow.

Just as symbolic is that on his first day in office, President Donald J. Trump restored the bust to the White House, as shown in this photo.

2017_01-20-churchill-is-back

The return was arranged at Trump’s request to Britain.

Peace in Our Time

A feckless gaggle of useless-as-tits-on-a-boar-hog politicians gathered in Paris yesterday to basically puff about their self-importance and make a spectacle of themselves as they signed a worthless piece of paper demanding Israel accede to Hamas’ two-state solution plan, the basis of which is the annihalation of the Jewish state.
Remind you of anything?


All of this, of course, means nothing. Just one last chance for the haughty John Kerry, who served in Vietnam by the way, to swill champagne and wolf down escargot and gladhand all the other posers. In 4 more days the Obama Crime Family will be as relevant as yesterday’s newspaper. The United States will soon be guided by a man with a set of titanium juevos, not the limp-dicked con artist that has terrorized American citizens and turned the most powerful nation in history into a laughingstock on the global stage.

A Farcical ‘Peace’ Conference in Paris
Last gasp of an old era?

Translation: the “old world” insists that when it comes to Israel, the West’s role is to knuckle under to Arab and Muslim bullying, making Jerusalem the world’s only capital to be devoid of other countries’ embassies. If this “old world” is truly on the way out, it cannot disappear soon enough.

Netanyahu: Paris Peace Conference Is ‘Useless’
“I must say that this conference is among the last twitches of yesterday’s world. Tomorrow’s world will be different — and it is very near,” said Netanyahu seemingly referencing the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump in five days.

Grunt Report from London: Brexit, Trump, Guns, Snogging and More

JimLondon4

James Gruntson, Drunken Gruntington Post Foreign Correspondent

Gruntington Post[London] – Our man on the street in London, James Gruntson, has finally achieved enough sobriety to post his report on the political vibe in London less than two weeks before the historic Brexit vote.  His report was dictated Saturday evening via a Skype session directly from a pub off Regent Street in Soho where he was drinking with his college classmates from Colorado and assorted new European friends and interview subjects.

Drinking, for twenty-year-olds in the USA is, of course, illegal.  So, our intrepid correspondent’s first major discovery was that he really liked drinking in pubs legally.  His second was that the same Irish/English porters and ales that taste like crap in the USA taste shockingly good on draught in the UK.  He didn’t mind telling us that he had no problem drinking 8 or 9 Imperial pints of Guinness in one sitting, and he seemed to take some pride in this.  Further, that seemed to be a fairly common occurrence.  Suddenly, it became clear that we were going to need to get all the information we could via phone before James passed out, and we were going to have to write his article about Brexit ourselves if it was going to get written at all.  So here goes.

England-London-Piccadilly-Circus-Crowd

PM David Cameron has campaigned against Brexit and for the EU

On Brexit: This national referendum is a simple up or down vote on the United Kingdom staying in the European Union, and it’s scheduled for June 23rd.  Enormous pressure is being applied to brits through political speeches and scaremongering advert campaigns to get people to vote one way or another.  James’ take is that the older brits who voted to join the EU in the first place have concluded that it was a bust, and they’re all mostly voting against it.  Staying in means being taxed by unelected control-freak assholes in Brussels, loss of sovereignty, and a marginally better trade situation.  The clueless young, who would all be Bernie Sanders Zombies if they lived in the USA, are voting to stay in the EU, simply because they are too stupid to know better.  The more mature voters expect to win, because they seem to be more numerous than the young in this country where people stopped breeding in earnest decades ago.

On Trump:  This was surprising.  Because James was traveling with a number of cute, young college females who were thoroughly brainwashed into thinking that Bernie Sanders is the Messiah, he didn’t expect that any socialist-leaning Brits would do anything other than reinforce that mindset.  That turned out to be wrong.

4MP859 Digital Camera

The George Pub in Soho

Just today, in fact, some French dude was chatting up the girls and putting the heavy moves on them at the pub.  Dutifully observing through bloodshot eyes, James noticed him start to ask the girls political questions.  After hearing their usual answer, French dude asked if they’d considered voting for Trump.  “That racist bastard?  Of course not!”  Frenchy pointed out, “You know, he’s not really racist, clearly; he just speaks his mind honestly.  Personally, I think he’d make the best President out of all the others who ran.”

This was typical, apparently, and it gave James huge thrills because it was just so unexpected that the natives would be helping him make his favorite point with his Bernista classmates.  Was this a universal phenomenon?  Impossible to tell, but keep in mind that he observed this in Soho among the youngest, hippest people practically anywhere.  This wasn’t in Northumberwinchesterderbyshire.  This could be a good sign.

569771b4c3618886638b45a4On Guns:  One of the things James observed in the British theatre and on the street was that there are 3 things that get a pretty sound mocking:  Scots, the French, and American’s infatuation with guns.  However, he also noticed that despite the world perception of London being a peaceful gun-free zone, it’s really more like an armed refugee camp with every square inch under constant video surveillance and a fully automatic weapon in the hands of a paramilitary copper on literally every corner of the city.  Ironic, it seems that here you are never very far from having a loaded machine gun in your face.  James also experienced a bomb scare and (unrelated) fire in a tube station that panicked everyone and brought in truckloads of additional heavily armed soldiers.

On Snogging:  Apparently, wherever you go in public in London, there are people snogging like crazy.  There are people snogging in the bushes, in the dim corners of tube stations, on the tube trains, in restaurants and clubs, even in the pubs.  There are couples on park benches coming within millimeters of needed to bring out the condoms because they’re essentially shagging at that point.

17UbelK

Snogging Like There’s No Tomorrow in London

No, really.  While we, in America are obsessing about whether women should breastfeed babies under discreet blankets in public, Britons are happily tonsil-probing, heavy petting and sucking on plump nipples right out in public, and nobody seems to notice or care.  Strange, that.  But, at least they seem to be coming around to their senses on Brexit and are beginning to be rather fond of Donald Trump.  All in all, things may be looking up in the land of the Prime Meridian and the home of the Queen.  At least, that’s the observation of our chronically smashed correspondent.  When he sobers up again, we may get another installment.  Hopefully, that will happen before King George VII (Prince Charles) gets coronated – corona’d – crowned.  Whatever.
