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.


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


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.

Pelosi: Dems Will Use MLK Day to Organize ‘Teach-Ins’ on GOP ‘Tax Scam’


Don Lemon: Trump Is a Racist

[CtH: Except for the part where he isn’t.  And, oh by the way, blacks and Hispanics currently have the lowest unemployment in recorded history … though, I suppose in Nancy Pelosi’s scrambled noggin, is proof positive that Trump is racist.]

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.


[CtH: I still remember when Michelle Obama sneered at Bush’s $600 tax rebates saying, “What can you do with $600? You buy one pair of earrings and it’s gone.”]

Jay Leno: Late-Night TV Turned Into ‘Depressing,’ ‘In Your Face’ Trump-Bashing

Former late-night icon Jay Leno says today’s crop of late-night television personalities have turned the formerly escapist form of entertainment into a constant, “depressing” drumbeat of criticism against President Donald Trump.

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.

    About the s*ithole comment, at work I am surrounded by lefties who hate Trump so much. They can’t even talk about him much less report about him without their hatred showing through. One of the loudest liberals in my department was talking about Trump’s comment this morning. She actually said that if there’s no proof that he said it and that it’s someone who claims that he said it then he probably didn’t say it. I almost fell out of my seat when she said that. She also said that there’s so much fake news out there that she doesn’t know what to believe anymore. Wow.

      That is the best thing I have read in all of 2018 so far! It gives me hope.

      I don’t care if he did say it. I think it is the most important policy question that has been articulated in decades. I don’t think it was racist, but the people who thought so just might be racist themselves. I think the case could be made that Sweden is turning into a shit hole pretty darn fast, so it just shows you what the offended have foremost in their minds.

        Sh*thole can be used to describe a trailer park I pass by on my way to work. All I see are white people living there so for people think sh*thole is a racist word only applied to countries where the majority of citizens are dark-skinned they are out of their minds.

        I guarantee that the people who are offended have never stepped foot in a “sh*thole” country. My sister went on a mission trip to Kenya and visited a slum there. She said that people would either deficate in the street or throw bags of poo into the streets since they had no toilets and no septic system of any sort. So you could say that that part of Kenya is a sh*thole and not be raaaasict.

          Two things come to mind.

          My brother visited Calcutta in the 60s and said the same thing about people pooping in the streets.

          I read a black veteran say that, after being deployed to one of the “sh*thole” countries in Africa (his word, not mine), he thanked God for the slavers who had kidnapped his ancestors.

    Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, is raising its minimum wage to $11 an hour. And they announced that they are offering bonuses to many long-term employees. Yahoo Finance now has a running list of over 80 major corporations who have handed out bonuses to over 2 million Americans.

    Because of the recent drop in the corporate tax rate, Fiat Chrysler is moving their Ram Heavy Duty truck from Mexico back to the United States! The move will add 2,500 jobs in Metro Detroit by 2020.

    Jesse Jackson called out President Trump for his “s**thole” remark.

    About that …

    On Jan 25, 1984, the Rev. Jesse L. Jackson used the word “hymie” and the word “hymietown” to refer respectively to Jews and New York City. He said later that he believed he was speaking in private.

    Well gollleeeee… It seems to me that a person speaking off the record reveals his true self more reliably than a person who knows he’s going to be quoted.

    Remember those times Barack Obama called Christians and gun owners “bitter clingers” and told Valdimir Putin he could be more “flexible” after he was re-elected? Both times, he didn’t know someone was recording him.

  5. …calling on the men and women in Congress to wear black to President Trump’s upcoming State of the Union address in solidarity with [whatever]…

    Someone suggested the other side should wear white, preferably 1970s zoot-suitish style with broad-brim hats and those big collar flaps.

    Things do seem to be becoming more clearly black and white a lot of late. Strange, isn’t it? Almost like watching the separation of wheat and chaff…!

  6. Nancy Pelosi Scoffs At ‘Crumb’ Bonuses

    I’m down here in The City visiting Mom this weekend, and as always got to thumb through the few sheets that are all that’s left of the city’s newspaper. As always, the editorial cartoon was stupid and irritating. (You can see it here — I won’t dignify it by re-printing it.

    Panel 1, a smiling Wal-Mart employee exhults over his bonus check.

    Panel 2, a pac-man thingy labeled “thousands of layoffs” is gulping.

    Um… whuuut? I think the days of mass layoffs due to the Obamaconomy are behind us.

    After seeing that, I did manage to avoid reading the editorials or letters to the editor, which tend to be of similar caliber.
