Michael Avenatti arrested on felony domestic violence charges

Anti-Trump attorney Michael Avenatti was arrested Wednesday on charges of felony domestic violence that reportedly left the woman with a “swollen and bruised” face.

The lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels and one of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s less-credible accusers was taken into custody Wednesday, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed.

“We can confirm that today LAPD Detectives arrested Michael Avenatti on suspicion of domestic violence. This is an ongoing investigation and we will provide more details as they become available,” the L.A.P.D. wrote on its official Twitter account.

No Contest…The Fix Was In

From the minute Paul Ryan announced he would not run again,his friend and fellow RINO, Kevin McCarthy was pre-ordained to be the minority leader. Jim Jordan is a conservative. They are not welcome in the GOP leadership. Only those who will put up token resistance to being steamrolled by democrats, even when they’re in the minority but act like they care for their voters are permitted.

Kevin McCarthy Beats Jim Jordan for House Leadership

California Congressman Kevin McCarthy has defeated Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan for House Minority Leader in the new Congress. McCarthy currently serves as House Majority Leader, which will change in January after Democrats took control of the lower chamber on Election Day

Stealing Elections In Plain Sight

Why Democrats Would Dare to Steal Elections in Plain Sight

The brazenness of the theft is astounding. Democrat election officials in Arizona and Florida, not finding the will of the people to their liking, are manufacturing a will of the people of their own. In Florida, they’re miraculously finding ballots — overwhelmingly votes for Democrats, of course — that were somehow inexplicably overlooked on election day. In Arizona, the Republican Party has accused Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes of “premeditated destruction of evidence” leading to “voting irregularities.”
The Left is doing this out in the open to send a message:

There is nothing you can do. We will win. If we lose, we will cheat. We will lie. We will steal. And there is nothing, absolutely nothing, that you can do about it.

If the Democrats pull this off, they will have shown conservatives — and the world — that nothing could stop them. The governor of Florida couldn’t stop them. The courts couldn’t stop them. President Trump himself, who has been commenting repeatedly on Twitter about the theft, couldn’t stop them.

Just Go Away,Jeff

This little turd has about six weeks before we’re finally rid of him. He’s determined to make a complete ass of himself in the meantime. I still say he ends up being the “republican on MSDNC.”

Jeff Flake Is Messing With Judicial Confirmations Again

Outgoing GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona will not vote to advance or confirm any judicial nominees until the Senate enacts legislation protecting special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“I have informed the Majority Leader that I will not vote to advance any of the 21 judicial nominees pending in the Judiciary Committee, or vote to confirm the 32 judges awaiting a confirmation vote on the floor, until S. 2644 is brought to the full Senate for a vote,” Flake said in a Wednesday floor speech, referring to the Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act.

Cuomo Pretends to Be Tim Russert

Cuomo tries to help Brenda Snipes redeem herself with a CNN interview. He didn’t expect her to make it worse!

CNN likely regrets giving a platform to the Florida elections official under fire for ballot recounts after her interview just seemed to make things worse.

Snipes has repeatedly dodged appeals to divulge the number of outstanding votes, despite Scott’s demands, an order by a judge last week and the state’s law. Her response to Cuomo’s questions about why she’s ignoring the law led Snipes on a rabbit trail in response.

“But you have rules that you’re supposed to abide by and transparency that is very important. You refused to give the Scott campaign the information they wanted. It had to go to court. The judge said you had to turn it over, you didn’t turn it over by the deadline that was given,” Cuomo said. “That is cast as a partisan spat, that you’re doing that because you’re a Democrat. How do you respond to that?”

Can’t Say I Blame Him

He’s been treated with savagery and ridicule since the day he was elected. Why would he go someplace to be mocked and insulted? He has better things to do.

President Trump to Skip Kennedy Center Honors for 2nd Straight Year

A former head of the National Endowment for the Arts, which oversees the nominating process for the arts medal, said he was dismayed.

“The current administration’s disregard for culture and scholarship, as well as presidential tradition, is an embarrassment,” Dana Gioia, chairman of the NEA from 2003 to 2009, told the AP.

Trump is expected to attend the G20 summit in Argentina at the end of the month. Had he gone to the Kennedy Center, it’s unlikely he would have been warmly welcomed by at least some of the honorees, who include Cher and “Hamilton” playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda, both sharp critics of the president.

Last year, honoree Norman Lear said he would boycott the event if Trump was there. The White House then announced the president and first lady would not be going “to allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction.”

Don’t Hold You Breath

Court Rules Hillary Clinton Must Answer Key Questions About Her Private Server

At this point, what difference does it make? She won’t remember anything.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton was required to submit, under oath, written answers to Judicial Watch’s questions. Clinton objected to and refused to answer questions about the creation of her email system; her decision to use the system despite warnings from State Department cybersecurity officials; and the basis for her claim that the State Department had “90-95%” of her emails. Judge Sullivan is considering Judicial Watch’s motion to compel answers to these questions.

In her responses sent to Judicial Watch and the court on October 13, 2016, Clinton refused to answer three questions and responded that she “does not recall” 20 times concerning her non-government clintonemail.com email system. She preceded her responses by eight “general objections” and two “objections to definitions.” The words “object” or “objection” appear 84 times throughout the 23-page document submitted to the court and Judicial Watch.

Well Organized, Well Funded

Filmmaker Ami Horowitz: The Caravan is ‘Highly Organized,’ ‘Paid for by a Number of Organizations’

“Approximately 90 to 95% of the migrants are male.

One of the lies the fake news if you will, media is trying to propagate is the fact that all this weird organic thing and all the water and the food and medicine, all dropped from … manna from heaven. It’s bologna. It’s all highly organized. It’s paid for by a number of organizations, we don’t know exactly where the money is coming from.”

They’re coming here for one reason and one reason only. To take jobs to send money back to their own country while living free on the largesse of the American taxpayer. here is only one effective way to stop them. Treat them as foreign invaders our military has been sworn to protect our nation from. Deadly force is the only thing they understand.

ANYBODY SURPRISED???

Latino turnout up 174% in 2018 midterms elections, Democrats say

“Latino voters played a pivotal role in taking back the House,” Luján said on a conference call hosted by the Latino Victory Fund, a political action committee. He said the Latino vote was especially consequential in a handful of House races across demographically diverse Sun Belt battlegrounds: Nevada, Arizona, Florida and Texas.

The Future of the Democrat Party

Al Loco: How incompetent is she? Let us count the ways!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Economic Genius

 

Dana Loesch: Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is a Gift to the GOP

 

 

 

“$40 TRILLION is a Lot of Money…” Even CNN Can’t Accept Ocasio-Cortez’s Socialist B.S.

 

 

One of these videos says O-C has a degree in economics; another says she has a degree in international relations. According to her bio at Wikipedia, “She graduated cum laude from Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in economics and international relations.” At Boston University, “cum laude” means she graduated with a B+ average overall. Her course load likely included 12 courses each in economics and international relations, plus two writing courses, as well as two courses each from the natural sciences, the humanities, and math & computer science area. That course load fills up the usual four courses per semester over four years college experience. I’m guessing she tested out of the language proficiency requirement, because her mother was born in Puerto Rico and likely raised her to be bilingual.

The fourth video cites this article which is 22 pages long, double spaced, and free to download.

The Costs of a National Single-Payer Healthcare System by Charles Blahous

Abstract: The leading current bill to establish single-payer health insurance, the Medicare for All Act (M4A), would, under conservative estimates, increase federal budget commitments by approximately $32.6 trillion during its first 10 years of full implementation (2022–2031), assuming enactment in 2018. This projected increase in federal healthcare commitments would equal approximately 10.7 percent of GDP in 2022, rising to nearly 12.7 percent of GDP in 2031 and further thereafter. Doubling all currently projected federal individual and corporate income tax collections would be insufficient to finance the added federal costs of the plan. It is likely that the actual cost of M4A would be substantially greater than these estimates, which assume significant administrative and drug cost savings under the plan, and also assume that healthcare providers operating under M4A will be reimbursed at rates more than 40 percent lower than those currently paid by private health insurance

The third video also references this article from the National Examiner:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has terrible ideas on healthcare by Sally Pipes

“Single-payer has been miserably failing in both the United Kingdom and Canada. When the British National Health Service turned 70 this month, it was marked (as it has been for decades) by doctor shortages, waiting lists, and hours long delays in emergency rooms. The system now has fewer doctors, nurses, and hospital beds than almost any other country in the western world on a per-capita basis. … Canada has the same problems.

“These calamities aren’t surprising. They are endemic to socialized medicine, which replaces the genius of the decentralized free market with the whims of a handful bureaucrats and central planners. Since healthcare is “free,” demand explodes and the only way for governments to control costs is by underpaying doctors and rationing care. That means that care is rationed, increasing wait times, and governments are forced to raise extra revenue to pay for added healthcare costs.

“The conclusion is clear: Socialized medicine means poor care for everyone. It would be a huge mistake to bring it here.”

One other point … the article specifically mentions “underpaying doctors” but does not follow with what should be the obvious next step problem. I.e., fewer top quality people becoming doctors.

It takes four years to get a pre-med B.S., then four more years for medical school. The average medical student graduates with a debt of over $170,000. [https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2014/11/2-6-million-cost-becoming-doctor-worth.html]

Specialties require an internship, usually one year, and a residency, which can be three or more years, during which the pay is nowhere near commensurate with what they can now earn once they’re fully qualified in a specialty. One final-year radiology resident calculated that her choice of a medical career had cost her over $2.6 million in lost wages, benefits, and added educational costs.

WHY would anyone do that only to become a slave to federal bureaucrats who decide what can and cannot be done for patients, require mountains of paperwork, and pay crap wages? Those who have a real calling to be doctors. The rest would go into more lucrative professions where their big brains and willingness to work long hours would pay off bigly.

This is why countries like the UK and Canada, which have had single-payer (government-run) healthcare systems for decades, provide such rotten service. Yeah, the care is “free” … but the costs are exorbitant.

About All We Have Left

Now that the democrats have stolen back the House they will put their master plan into effect.They will try to encumber the president with endless subpoenas and prattling about nothing in particular.We will end up gaining one seat in the Senate,when it should have been 4-5 seats if not for rampant criminality by the still-minority party.If the democrats cannot steal the presidency in 2020,the only thing republicans can do is keep nominating decent judges,thanks to Harry Reid’s short sighted bullying tactics.

Judiciary Committee processes Trump nominees over Democrats’ objections

Senators returned to Washington Tuesday and immediately picked up where they left off — processing President Trump’s judicial nominees, over the objections of Democrats.

The Judiciary Committee held a hearing for Paul B. Matey, nominated to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and for four district court picks.

Mr. Matey’s nomination is particularly controversial because it marks another round in the fight over Senate traditions and courtesies and their abuse in the era of Mr. Trump.
Mr. Matey is slated to fill a seat on the appeals court that’s traditionally ascribed to New Jersey. But that state’s senators, both Democrats, object to the president’s pick, and have withheld their “blue slips” to signify their opposition.

“To say that my objections to this judge is just because they’re conservative is just not fair,” Sen. Cory Booker said, arguing he wasn’t properly consulted on Mr. Matey’s nomination. “Nobody has asked me what my objections might be.”
