2018_02 18 John Podesta on Face the Nation

On Sunday’s “Face the Nation,” Hillary Clinton’s former campaign chairman John Podesta was interviewed by CBS host Nancy Cordes.

When Cordes asked him how the Russians knew to focus on Michigan and Wisconsin and Hillary didn’t, Podesta was visibly flustered.

Donald Trump visited Wisconsin several times during the election. Hillary Clinton only went there AFTER the election to peddle her book of excuses ‘What Happened’.

The ever-classy (not) WaPo had this to say about Trump’s visit to Florida: He “followed a tried-and-true playbook for responding to crises, as he has a mass shooting in Las Vegas and a hurricane in Texas: leaning on praise of the responders — casting their response in hyperbolic terms — while making quick and choreographed stops that do not draw protesters or detractors or large crowds.”

Sarah Sanders responded:

I’m reminded of that time that then-Candidate Obama CANCELED a scheduled visit to war-injured soldiers because the hospital wouldn’t let his camera crew in.

Tucker Carlson Tonight: February 16

The FBI failed to properly investigate the Florida shooter after numerous warnings. Maybe they were too busy trying to impeach Trump to do their jobs.

This is the fourth mass shooting where the FBI had files on the murderers beforehand. The others were Army Maj. Nidal Hassan who committed the 2009 Fort Hood shootings, the Tsarnaev brothers who committed the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, and Omar Mateen who committed the2016 Pulse nightclub shootings.

    After delivering my papers yesterday I stopped at a Meiers store to pick up a few things.I got a nice chuck roast and a pork tenderloin,which my wife cuts in half to make two meals for the two of us.When I got to the checkout lane there was a Muslim woman there. I went and found another employee and asked them to ring me up.She did,but asked why I didn’t use the Muzzie.First I told her she’d have to come over anyway to scan the pork roast since their religion forbids them touch pork or alcohol. I told her Islam is the only religion that is allowed to dictate to their employer what they will or won’t do. If I’d been forced to go through her line I’d have left the store. The fact there are so many of them here disgusts me.

      It does seem like they could have a different position in the store that accommodates their needs without inconveniencing the customer and the co-workers. Like stocking the canned vegetables, for example. Or the floral dept. Or the customer service desk. It used to annoy me at the store where I shopped when the clerk would come to one of my contraband purchases and just stop and turn on her light and wait for someone to come scan it for her. She wouldn’t even scan other stuff while waiting. Usually it wouldn’t be more than 30 seconds later that another contraband item would show up in my purchases. Wash, rinse, repeat.

        I absolutely loathe cigarettes and HATED having to sell them when I worked in a drug store. But I am quite sure I would’ve kissed my job good-bye if I’d refused.

      It’s really whacked that the store even has someone on the cash register who refuses to touch something the store sells!

    There were two Muslims working for a trucking firm in New York a couple years back.They refused to haul the semi trailer of beer that they were supposed to deliver.They were fired.They sued and won $400,000 dollars.It’s a great country when you get to play by your own rules.
