Way back in 1965 Jody Miller did a parody of Roger Miller’s song, King of the Road, called Queen of the House.
These days we have at least two “queens” in the House, deranged, maniacal, as clueless about the real world as Alice’s rabbit. I’m speaking, of course, of Gasoline Maxine and Nasty Pelousy. They are shining examples of today’s Democrat icons. Their secret lies in the complete ignorance and moonbattery of their voters. All you can think of when you hear their incoherent babble is how did this happen to our country?
Maxine Waters: 70 Percent Of Women Want To Impeach Trump
WHEN YOUR DISTRICT IS FULL OF CRIMINALS AND PARASITES YOU CAN SAY ANYTHING AND GET AWAY WITH IT.
“Everywhere I go, people are talking about, ‘Why can’t y’all get rid of him? Why can’t you impeach him?’” Waters said. “They say all of these things and I’m not just talking about my district — whether I’m on the airplane, I’m walking down the street in New York, wherever I am — I’m hearing it.”
Waters then claimed that 70 percent of women want the president impeached, but did not cite any evidence to back up her claim.
Nancy Pelosi Knocks Her Own San Francisco District Over Free Speech, Says Don’t Shout Down Speakers
Fearless College Student Calls Out Nancy Pelosi About Her ‘Crumbs’ Comments to Her Face
A fearless college student confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) about her previous attacks on Trump’s tax cut, where she referred to the plan as “crumbs.”
Nancy Pelosi slurred her words and marred her face as she tried to answer the student with her liberal double-speak.
You’ve spoken about the effects of the Republican tax plan, specifically referring to its effects on average Americans as ‘crumbs,’ as the son of small business owners, I know that it’s helped my parent hire more employees. It’s helped us pay off our mortgage, helped put me through college.”
“Would you still refer to the effects of this tax plan on average Americans as crumbs?” the college student asked. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/04/fearless-college-student-calls-out-nancy-pelosi-about-her-crumbs-comments-to-her-face-video/

Confident Pelosi: Dems Ready to Push Amnesty, Gun Control ‘When We Win’ in Nov
A confident House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) predicted on Tuesday that Democrats will take back the House and immediately push for amnesty for so-called Dreamers and more gun-control legislation.
“When we win and we take over in January, some of the issues that will come up soon are some of the issues that we are asking the Speaker to do right now,” she said at a Georgetown University event.
Pelosi then said Democrats are set to push “gun-violence legislation and background-checks legislation” in addition to “legislation on the Dreamers.”
Maxine Waters Hopes ‘Cohen Tapes’ Give Democrats ‘Treasure Trove Of Information’
Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters hopes an FBI raid on Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, provides Democrats with a “treasure trove” of information with which to impeach Trump, she said in a new interview.
“I am certainly working toward his impeachment,” Waters told Variety Magazine in an interview published Wednesday. “I think Mueller is doing a great job. I am hopeful that the Cohen tapes will be a treasure trove of information that will help move us toward that,” Waters said. http://dailycaller.com/2018/04/25/maxine-waters-trump-impeachment/
Maxine Waters to Trump: ‘Please Resign’ so I Don’t Have to Impeach You
The interviewer asked Waters if she had any advice for the president, and the California Democrat did not mince words.
“Please resign,” said Waters, one of Trump’s most vocal critics, after being honored at the Time 100 Gala in New York. “So that I won’t have to keep up this fight of your having impeached because I don’t think you deserve to be there. Just get out.” http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/04/25/waters-trump-please-resign-dont-impeach/
I was going to do an opinion piece, but after almost two weeks of fighting snowstorms every day as I delivered newspapers I’m worn out. Maybe another time.
PAUL RYAN Promises Democrats to Pass Amnesty – Will Get to It Next
NEVER MIND CALLS TO PRIMARY HIM. THE DEMOCRATS IN HIS HOMETOWN LOVE HIM. HE’S NOT GOING ANYWHERE.
Speaker Paul Ryan promised Democrats on Thursday he will pass amnesty for illegal aliens. They just need to wait a week or two.
Formerly bankrupt California city tests ‘universal’ income for residents The proposed project is being funded by a private grant
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
The plan, spearheaded by Stockton’s 27-year-old mayor, Michael Tubbs, will likely begin sometime in August 2018 and involve at least 100 people of varying income levels getting $500 a month for three years.
Ever since it declared bankruptcy in 2012, Stockton has been in recovery-mode, and Tubbs sees basic income — a growing topic of discussion around the world over the past couple years — as one way to rehabilitate the city.
In a basic income system, participants get a fixed amount of money that they can use however they want.
Ignoring Human Rights Abuses, Mainstream Media Gush Over North Korea’s ‘Charm’
In a bizarre display of willful blindness, U.S. liberal media have lavished praise on North Korea’s dictatorship during the first days of the Winter Olympics, gushing over its “charm offensive” and comparing it favorably to the Trump administration.
In an article Sunday titled “Kim Jong-un’s Sister Turns On the Charm, Taking Pence’s Spotlight,” the New York Times was unable to contain its admiration for the totalitarian state, saying that North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, stole the show at the Winter Olympics by sending his sister, Kim Yo-jong. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/02/12/ignoring-human-rights-abuses-mainstream-media-gush-north-koreas-charm/
Liberal Hack to Secretary Mattis: Why Divert Energy, Time, Financial Resources for a Military Parade?
Donald Trump with wife Melania and sons Eric and Donald, Jr. Trump holds the Phelps Award as 2008 Honoree of the Year by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Plaza.
Donald Trump was credited with saving the 50th Anniversary of the NY Veterans Day Parade
UPI reported in 1995 how Trump was credited with ‘saving’ the New York Veterans Day Parade. The parade that year was marking the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II.
Police estimated 500,000 people attended the largest military parade ever held in New York. Organizers, who placed the turnout at closer to a million, said the parade would not have been a success if it hadn’t been for real estate developer Donald Trump, who contributed $200,000 and raised another $300,000.
Last week the Trump White House announced they would ask the military to plan a great military parade in Washington DC.
Democrats were disgusted.
Hallie Jackson: To follow up on Catherine’s question, You just laid out the argument to fulling funding the military, why you think every dollar counts. So why divert time, energy, financial resources to the planning of a parade as the president has asked?
I-TEAM: Inmates claim Corrine Brown getting special treatment
Current, former workers at Coleman facility say that’s not true
Security officials inside the minimum-security prison camp that is part of the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex in Central Florida — where the 71-year-old former Democratic congresswoman reported to Jan. 29 — said she’s treated like everyone else.
But according to inmates, Brown has been getting everything from massages to being able to wear wigs.
“New mattress, kissing up all day and all night by both staff and residents … and she got to keep a bunch of wigs,” one inmate wrote.
The letter goes on to say, “She had to have a brand new mattress. She has girls that are in prison at her beck and call. She says they are on her payroll. Where we got one chicken pattie for lunch she gets 2. The officers allows her to have massages every night.”
That inmate also claims that Brown is allowed to wear “brand new high-top leather sneakers” that aren’t even sold in the prison commissary. https://www.news4jax.com/news/investigations/i-team-inmates-claim-corrine-brown-getting-special-treatment

Jeanne Ives Targets Illinois ‘Sanctuary State’ Law in Republican Primary
RAUNER TRIED TO BRING A BIT OF FISCAL SANITY TO THIS LIBERAL SEWER. HE WAS STEAMROLLED BY THE DEMOCRAT-DOMINANT LEGISLATURE LED BY HOUSE SPEAKER MICHAEL MADIGAN AND THE NEWS MEDIA. HIS VETO WAS EASILY OVERRIDDEN AND HE JUST GAVE UP. NOTHING ANY REPUBLICAN DOES WOULD MAKE A BIT OF DIFFERENCE.
Illinois State Representative Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) has launched a biting new ad against incumbent Republican Bruce Rauner that brings the “sanctuary state” issue to the fore in the Republican primary.
In 2017, Rauner signed a law that essentially made Illinois a sanctuary state. Conservatives warned that it marked the “beginning of the end” of his administration. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/02/11/jeanne-ives-sanctuary-state-becoming-major-issue-il-governor-primary/
Columnist: “It’s Time To Accept They’re No Longer Journalists. They’re Activists”
The Washington Post, New York Times, and USA Today still refuse to employ a single columnist that won’t begin each piece with anything less than “Mr. Trump, you are a liar!”
CNN this year had to retract one story and significantly modify a second one (both were related to Trump and Russia) after it turned out the former wasn’t supported by any facts (otherwise often referred to as “fiction”) and the latter was inaccurate to the point of libel. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/02/columnist-time-accept-theyre-no-longer-journalists-theyre-activists/
California Moves To Force Public Universities To Administer Abortion Pills The state legislature is moving on an aggressive attempt to reconfigure student health centers from places of healing to abortion franchises.
The FDA reports that such drug-induced abortions have led to cases of extreme bleeding, infection and incomplete abortions requiring a surgery, and even to the death of mothers. The drugs are especially dangerous to women who are later in pregnancy or are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, both conditions which must be determined by an ultrasound (using equipment not usually found in a college health center.) And that is before we add in the emotional experience of waiting alone in a bathroom to see the pre-born infant pass into a toilet. http://thefederalist.com/2018/02/09/california-moves-force-public-universities-administer-abortion-pills/
California Will Block Oil And Coal Shipments, Risks Constitutional Battle
“Given how unpopular oil development in coastal waters is in California, it is certain that the state would not approve new pipelines or allow use of existing pipelines to transport oil from new leases onshore,” coastal commissioners Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, State Controller Betty Yee, and state Department of Finance Director Michael Cohen wrote in a letter Wednesday to the BOEM.
California officials can therefore control pipelines, transportation of materials, terminals, and refineries built in coastal areas. The federal government could pull out the U.S. Constitution’s supremacy clause to create a regulatory framework that would override California law. http://dailycaller.com/2018/02/07/california-will-block-oil-coal-shipments/
Dems left Dreamers out to dry, say activists
Immigration activists are furious that 73 House Democrats, including seven members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, voted for a bipartisan spending bill that doesn’t include a DACA fix.
“Last night immigrant young people and people of conscience fighting for justice were betrayed by both parties,” said Greisa Martínez Rosas, a DACA recipient and advocacy director for United We Dream, an immigrant youth activism network. http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/373208-dems-left-dreamers-out-to-dry-say-activists

NBC Political Analyst: ‘Trump Has Become The Commander in Chief of American Rape Culture’
Last week White House staff secretary Rob Porter stepped down after his former wife alleged he was abusive during their marriage. And White House speechwriter David Sorensen also resigned after a former wife alleged he was abusive during their marriage. Both men denied the charges.
Of course, this story led liberal media headlines all week.
These are the same people who defended Bill Clinton – who actually was accused of rape and was forced to pay thousands to at least one woman he sexually abused. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/02/awful-nbc-political-analyst-trump-become-commander-chief-american-rape-culture-video/
Michelle Obama Unveiled Her Official Portrait – The Audience Reaction Says It All
“Let’s just start by saying, ‘Wow,’ again. Let me just take a minute. It’s amazing. Wow,” Obama said after the portrait was unveiled. The moment was met with a gasp and applause.
“Whatcha think?” she asked her mother, Marian Robinson. “It’s pretty nice, isn’t it?”
Obama said that she and President Barack Obama interviewed several artists for their portraits, and that she bonded with Sherald because of all the time they spent together.
House Passes Short-Term Spending Bill, Legislation Faces Uphill Battle In Senate
The House passed a continuing resolution (CR) along party lines Thursday after GOP leadership struck a last-minute deal with the House Freedom Caucus ensuring they had the votes.
Following the vote House GOP leadership called on Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pass the measure.
“Sen. Schumer, do not shut down the federal government. Do not jeopardize funding for our military and for our national security. Do not jeopardize funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program,” House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters Thursday evening. “It is risky. It is reckless. And it is wrong.”
Senate GOP leaders prepared to force Democrats into a series of uncomfortable votes, aimed at splitting their ranks by pitting moderates from states that Trump won against party leaders and the handful of outspoken liberals considering a run for the presidency.
Democrats Just Admitted Their Goal is to Shutdown the Government
But according to a Democrat aide who spoke to NBC News, the goal is for Democrats to come up with enough votes to stop the funding measure from going through. In other words, they just admitted their goal is to shutdown the government, not to avert it as they’ve been claiming. They’ve also put the brakes on any kind of compromise that doesn’t include amnesty for illegal aliens currently covered by DACA.
[CtH: Wait, what? Didn’t they once upon a time tell us that a govt shut down was the MOST TERRIBLE THING EVER?]
3.6 Million DREAMERS in US — Will Flip Florida, Arizona, Georgia, and North Carolina From Red to Blue!
THIS IS WHY THE DEMOCRATS ARE PUSHING SO HARD FOR AMNESTY FOR ILLEGALS.
A recent study of DACA Dreamers found that most of these new Democrat voters reside in Republican states. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Democrats are determined to pass amnesty for this group of illegal aliens.
DACA amnesty could give Arizona, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina to the Democrat Party. And then once a Democrat is elected they will open the borders to millions more third world immigrants to vote Democrat.
This is what Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Democrats want to happen.
THIS PATHETIC LITTLE PISSANT IS TRYING TO LEAD HIS OWN PARTY TO RUIN.
The hostage-taking is being fronted by a group of GOP legislators, led by Sen. Jeff Flake and Sen. Lindsey Graham, who announced Wednesday they would not allow 2018 funding for the Pentagon until Trump approves an amnesty, saying:
To the defense hawks, the only way you’re going to get your money is to deal with immigration rationally.
Democrats and their media allies are eager to let Graham and his GOP allies take the leading role in this shutdown-or-amnesty fight.
Pro-amnesty Democrats are minimizing their visibility by pretending they will oppose a budget deal until the Congress funds various spending programs—such as community health centers, and disaster aid—which the GOP majority is largely willing to fund
USA Today: Amnesty Debate Is About 3.6 Million ‘Dreamers,’ not Just 800,000 DACA Illegals
The article’s headline was: “There are 3.6M ‘DREAMers’ — a number far greater than commonly known.”
Many pro-amnesty legislators — and many newspaper outlets — routinely conflate the very different ‘DACA’ and ‘Dreamer’ terms. This conflation allows them to suggest that the Democrats’ huge DREAM Act amnesty for 3.6 million illegals — and eventually, their parents and chain-migration relatives — is a smaller amnesty for the ‘DACA’ illegals, whose estimated population ranges from 670,000 to 800,000.
Dems Want a Shutdown To Get Off the Subject of the Tax Cuts
Just wait until government workers are sent home, when national monuments are temporarily shuttered, when Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon are closed. We will see all the sad stories on TV about how the evil, heartless Republicans shutdown the government and ruined these people’s lives. It’s only a matter of time and the media is champing at the bit right now to hammer Republicans.
[CtH: Right. While in 2013, Obama went out of his way to block access to open air monuments by HIRING people to put up fences and guard them, because God Forbid an Honor Flight of WWII vets could wander around their own monument.]
Trump Admin Won’t Hold Parks And Monuments Hostage If Government Shuts Down
During the last government shutdown in 2013, the Obama administration completely closed down more than 400 parks and monuments across the country. The administration blamed the shutdown and forced furlough of 20,000 U.S. Parks Service employees on the closures.
The move was widely criticized by Republicans accusing then-President Barack Obama of unnecessarily making the shutdown more upsetting to Americans than was necessary.
Trump WH: We’re Not Going to Politicize a Shutdown the Way Obama Did
Short called it “incredibly frustrating” that the regular appropriations process doesn’t work and Congress continues to lurch from one continuing resolution to another. “We submitted a budget to Congress last February; we’re now in mid-January without a spending bill,” Short said.
Senate Democrats have refused to proceed to normal appropriations bills, all 12 of which were passed on time by the House.
Short noted that appropriations bills need 60 Senate votes to pass, so 10 Democrats would need to join Republicans Friday to keep the government funded for another month. “So the reality is that those ten votes we need to get to 60 is what’s basically bringing the government to a shutdown and stopping funding of our troops.”
Being a Democrat means you don’t need a conscience or a moral compass. You cater to the ignorant, the lazy, and the morally reprehensible. You blatantly lie to them. Most of them know it and they don’t care. They are motivated by greed,ignorance, and hate. You stand for nothing except enriching yourself at the expense of the the law-abiding people of this country who work and pay the taxes you buy votes with.
When they’re in power, like the dark days of the Obama reign of terror, they specialize in spreading misery to all quarters. Times like these, when they’re relegated to comic relief, they can display a particular pathos born of desperation to be relevant. They will return to the throne one day, but until then they’re just fun to watch.
Frederica Wilson Joins Dems In Boycotting Trump’s State Of The Union Address
“For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement. “I have no doubt that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises, and lies.”
As for Frederica Wilson, the gobs of attention she got for exploiting the wife of a fallen soldier has faded away – an easily forgotten embarrassing memory.
So naturally she thinks her next ticket to cable news is announcing she too will skip Trump’s SOTU address.
Black unemployment is at an all-time low – falling to below 7% for the first time ever. And the primary beneficiaries of President Trump stemming the flow of unskilled illegal aliens into the country are black Americans. Now you would think that Frederica, John and Maxine would be more focused on the constituents in their districts than flooding the country will unskilled, cheap labor. But for the Democrat Party, all that matters are illegal aliens.
American blacks need to understand that they have been cast aside. Parasites suck the life out of a host then move on. And the Democrat parasites in Congress have drained all advantage out of the black vote. Now they’ve moved on to illegals.
Since they have nothing to show for their endless years in Congress, all they have left is showboating and demagoguery. So they put on petty displays for attention and hurl slanderous attacks at the President — all to mask their years and years of inaction.
So go ahead, stay home, you useless blobs of irrelevance.
Maxine Waters: MLK Would Be Marching to Impeach Trump
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) took note of Martin Luther King Day Monday by tweeting that if civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was alive today he would “be marching not only for civil rights & protecting voting rights, but to urge Members of Congress to accept their responsibility to save the U.S. from a dangerous man who has no respect for our Constitution & no concern for strengthening our democracy.”
Dems ‘Terrified’ of Trump Cracking Black Vote, Civil Rights Leader Says
With infamous race card losing its potency, guests on ‘The Laura Ingraham Show’ say president’s program threatens old alliances.
“[Democrats] are terrified that this president gets somewhere north of 10 to 15 percent of the black vote,” said Niger Innis, spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) (pictured above right, in red tie, in the image on this page). “And they’re terrified because, if that happens, then it is first of all, mathematically, electorally impossible for a Democrat to win.”
Innis added, “But more than that, it is because they are so invested in having a monopoly of the black vote, and that monopoly is based on blacks as forever seeing themselves as victims, forever seeing themselves as victims of racism, of economic depravity of the white man.”
The battle to shut down Obama’s presidential center
What initially started out as a library has morphed into a 20-acre private “center,” and some environmentalists and historians are unhappy with the Obama Foundation’s plans to swoop in and take over a national historic place.
The Obama Foundation originally said it would house a presidential library on the property and vowed to have the National Archives oversee the facility because of its placement on public land. But that’s no longer the case, and some are balking at the change in plans.
Surprise: The States That Hemorrhaged Population Fastest in 2017 Were…
Some of the politicians objecting most loudly to the GOP tax reform law were Democrats from high tax blue states, whose constituents for years have been somewhat insulated from their exorbitant state and local tax bills via an ability to write them off as a federal tax deduction. Under the new law, those who itemize (a small fraction of taxpayers to begin with) will only be able to deduct up to $10,000 in SALT-related (property tax) expenses. This will expose some of them, especially those in upper-income brackets, to the true costs of living in tax happy jurisdictions. These people make up the lion’s share the roughly five percent of taxpayers who stand to see a net tax increase next year — whereas 80 percent of all taxpayers, and 91 percent of middle class earners will get a cut.
US Military Members Receive Biggest Pay Bump Since 2010
Military members will see their paychecks rise by the largest percent increase since 2010 this week.
At the end of December, President Donald Trump, by way of executive order, mandated a 2.4% pay hike for uniformed service members and a 1.9% raise for federal workers. The Trump administration’s initial budget blueprint called for a 2.1% pay increase, while the House and Senate suggested the 2.4% figure, which was eventually adopted by the president.
Tom Cotton: ‘Let’s See How’ Shutting Down Government Over DACA Amnesty ‘Works Out for’ Democrats
Cotton, however, warned that if Democrats were to shut down the government over amnesty, it could have a detrimental impact on their re-election efforts in states like Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Montana.
Towards the end of 2017, Democrats in the House and Senate made similar threats that they would shut down the federal government over an amnesty for illegal aliens. But the left-wing party quickly backed off the plan when public opinion polls showed Americans were increasingly opposed to a shutdown over a year-end amnesty that would further suppress the wages of American workers.
Law-Abiding American Families Are the Victims in the Dreamers Debacle
Democrats would have us believe removing these people is inhumane. What’s inhumane is ignoring laws we don’t like and vigorously enforcing those that we do. It’s a tragedy of justice, and it creates an operational double standard that is destroying our nation while incentivizing bad actors from around the world to take advantage of us.

Trump Administration Plans To Help States Implement Work Requirements for Medicaid
Kentucky has just received approval from the Trump administration to implement their work requirements, which mirror their requirements for food stamps. There are 650,000 Medicaid beneficiaries in Kentucky. Many of these individuals do not have any earned income and do not work at all. Under the new requirements, these beneficiaries will have to either work, train, or volunteer for 20 hours a week in order to receive benefits.
According to research from the Foundation for Government Accountability, the number of Medicaid beneficiaries has more than doubled since 2000. Now 75 million are enrolled in the program, which includes 28 million able-bodied adults. In addition, 52 percent of Medicaid beneficiaries that are able-bodied do not work.
CNN Anchor Alisyn Camerota Brought To Tears Over Trump “Shithole” Remark
Economists Agree: Trump, Not Obama, Gets Credit For Economy
The Wall Street Journal asked 68 business, financial and academic economists who was responsible for the strengthening of the economy, and most “suggested Mr. Trump’s election deserves at least some credit” for the upturn.
A majority said the president had been “somewhat” or “strongly” positive for job creation, gross domestic product growth and the rising stock market.
COVFEFE!! Dow Reaches 26,000 Points!… Up 1,000 Points in Just SEVEN Days
President Trump’s first year in office resulted in the greatest year in stock market history. The Dow ended up nearly 5,000 points for the year which was the highest increase in the Dow’s more than 100 year history. The Dow reached all-time new highs a record 71 times in 2017, breaking the record for the most all-time highs in a calendar year set in 1995.
NYT Officially Designates Trump A Racist, And Nobody Cares
The New York Times wants to make it official: President Donald Trump is a racist. On Friday, the editorial board of America’s most influential paper asserted there was no doubt of that.
The editorial was in response to Trump reportedly asking why America takes in so many immigrants from “shithole” countries instead of places like Norway. “Where to begin?” the Times’ editorial board collectively sighed when reflecting on Trump’s statement. “How about with a simple observation: The president of the United States is a racist.”
It shouldn’t be doubted that folks like Charles Blow and others in the media genuinely believe Trump is a racist for saying “shithole” countries and criticizing illegal immigrants in colorful language. But they aren’t just saying what they believe to get it off their chest.
The commentators wanting Trump to be certified as a racist understand the power of that charge and how it has played out in politics in the past.
Donald Trump held an unprecedented meeting with leaders from both parties yesterday, had it televised, and invited the press. Had he gone on stage during the campaign and said “As far as amnesty, whatever the two parties come up with I’ll gladly sign,” he’d never have been elected. Maybe he has an ulterior motive that I’m too stupid to see but it seems that since Kelly and McMaster got rid of all his conservative advisers he’s started drifting left on many things. Stopping the immigation tsunami was one of the main reasons he was elected.
Trump Wants a “Bill of Love” on DACA
“We are here today to advance bipartisan immigration reform that serves the needs of the American families, workers and taxpayers. It’s DACA,” Trump said a meeting on DACA at the White House. “Maybe we can do something. We have a lot of good people in this room, a lot of people that have a great spirit for taking care of people we represent.”
“I have great confidence . . . if they come to me with things I’m not in love with, I’m going to do it because I respect them,” he said.
He does? Why?
Trump suggests 2-phase immigration deal for ‘Dreamers’
President Donald Trump suggested Tuesday that an immigration agreement could be reached in two phases — first by addressing young immigrants and border security with what he called a “bill of love,” then by making comprehensive changes that have long eluded Congress.
My head is spinning from all the things that were said by the president and others in that room in the course of an hour and a half,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill. “But the sense of urgency, the commitment to DACA, the fact that the president said to me privately as well as publicly, ‘I want to get this done,’ I’m going to take him as his word.” https://apnews.com/63df959272f94f908b7a27ba55553df9
After Trump on-air immigration meeting, I hear that Amnesty Train a-comin’
Trump meeting with congressional leaders was both political genius and worrisome.
People got to watch him in action running a meeting and in control, the master of ceremonies presiding over the congressional leadership from both parties.
It must have killed CNN to have to admit Trump was in control:
So at many levels, it was a genius political move.
BUT, BUT, BUT
As I was watching it, all I could keep thinking was, “here comes amnesty.”
The code words were all there, particularly “comprehensive immigration reform.”
The political dividing line is “pathway to citizenship.” If that’s in either a DACA bill or ultimate comprehensive reform, it’s amnesty. And it’s what the old Gang of 8 members still want.
Report: DACA Amnesty ‘Would Increase’ Number of Anchor Babies on Welfare
As Breitbart News previously reported, there are an estimated 4.5 million United States-born children who were given birthright citizenship despite at least one of their parents being an illegal alien. These children are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they are able to eventually bring their foreign relatives to the U.S. legally through the process known as “chain migration.”
This estimate does not include anchor babies over the age of 18 or those who are living abroad with their deported parents.
A CBO report, estimating the impact of giving amnesty to the nearly 800,000 to 3.5 million illegal aliens who are enrolled or eligible for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, finds that such a plan would end up increasing the number of anchor babies who participate in federal benefit programs every year: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/01/08/report-daca-amnesty-would-increase-number-of-anchor-babies-on-welfare/
After DACA Comments, Tucker Asks Trump: ‘What Was The Point Of Running For President?’
The Daily Caller co-founder said, “Congress is full of people from both parties who believe that the point of our immigration policy is to provide cheap labor to their donors and to atone for America’s imaginary sins against the world. They couldn’t care less about immigration’s effect on you or your family–these are the same people the president now says he trusts to write the immigration bill, the one he will sign no matter what it says. So what was the point of running for president?”
Carlson continued, “The Democrats’ goal is to import more Democratic voters, and by any means necessary. Once they retake the Congress and the presidency, and if Trump betrays his base on immigration–that’ll definitely happen–it is over. Say goodbye to borders, they are done. http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/09/tucker-rips-trump-on-immigration-what-was-the-point-of-running-for-president-video/
‘In Command’: Trump Shocks Media With Access To Immigration Meeting With Democrats
Laying out conditions that many Democrats view as nonstarters, Mr. Trump said the legislation must fortify the nation’s borders; end “chain migration,” a term used by immigration critics to refer to immigrants’ ability to bring members of their extended family to the United States after gaining their own legal status; and cancel the diversity visa lottery program.
Even CNN praised the extended pool spray, with Dana Bash saying that this meeting probably wouldn’t have gone any different if the cameras weren’t there, citing two Republicans at the meeting who told her they had no idea the cameras would stick around that long. She added that this is what people who voted for Trump hoped his presidency would look like, The Donald “in command.” https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2018/01/09/trump-shocks-media-with-access-to-immigration-meeting-with-democrats-n2432135
‘Lucky You Guys’: Sarah Sanders Pokes Fun At Reporters Over Sitting In On DACA Meeting
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders poked fun at the media Tuesday over the White House allowing reporters to observe a bipartisan immigration talk.
Fabian asked, “Whose decision was it to allow the press in to witness that entire negotiation, and what was the goal of having us sit there and watch?”
Sanders said, “Just to be clear you weren’t there for the entire negotiation, because the deal didn’t take place until after you guys left. http://dailycaller.com/2018/01/09/lucky-you-guys-sarah-sanders-pokes-fun-at-reporters-over-sitting-in-on-daca-meeting-video/
Apparently “silly season” is not limited to electoral nonsense in D.C. The democrats and the media whores have made Republican presidents the object of non-stop abuse for decades. Then a creature not born of the swamp descended on Washington like a cyclone in a wheat field. Not content to silently take the abuse democrats dish out the way Bush did, Trump hits back. Sometimes swiftly, as in the CFPB attempted coup, other times like Chinese water torture.
Winning: Donald Trump Calls Democrats’ Budget Bluff on Amnesty
President Donald Trump stepped up his budget confrontation with Democratic leaders today and called their bluff on their mumbled threats to block the 2018 budget if it did not include the unpopular ‘Dreamer’ amnesty.
Instead, the Democrats retreated to Congress where they lobbed complaints at Trump. The retreat left amnesty advocates in the lurch, despite months — and years — of media-magnified claims that the American public wants a no-strings amnesty for the 3 million ‘dreamers,’ plus their millions of chain-migration relatives.
Trump dared “them to shut the government” and they folded, said Mark Krikorian.
WINNING! POTUS Trump Gives Presser Next to Empty Chairs for Pelosi-Schumer …. PELOSI FREAKS OUT
Senile Nancy Pelosi threw a tantrum because Trump gave a press conference next to two empty seats after the House Minority leader and her fossil counterpart in the Senate, Chuck Schumer decided to be a no-show Tuesday
“Meeting with ‘Chuck and Nancy’ today about keeping government open and working. Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!” Trump tweeted.
In a stunning visual, President Trump gave a press conference next to two empty seats where Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were supposed to be sitting.
Trolling the two butthurt Dems with the empty seats in the Roosevelt Room reminded me of another notable empty chair scenario. Picture it. The year was 2012. The Oscar-winning actor/director/legend Clint Eastwood entered the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the site of the RNC Convention, in dramatic fashion with the backdrop screen showing a large silhouette of him from the film “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”. The speakers in the arena were blaring the score from the film. The crowd ate it up.
Under fire from Trump, the network says it would be ‘inappropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests.’
“CNN will not be attending this year’s White House Christmas party,” a CNN spokesperson said. “In light of the President’s continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.”
NOTICE THEY’RE REFERRING TO IT AS A “CHRISTMAS PARTY?”…THINK THEY’LL HAVE TO ISSUE A RETRACTION?
[CtH: Methinks those who attend will somehow manage to soldier through their devastating disappointment. ::snork::]
Sarah Huckabee Sanders Has Best Response Ever To CNN Boycotting The White House Christmas Party
“Christmas comes early! Finally, good news from @CNN,” tweeted Sanders.
Tensions are running high between the White House and CNN after President Trump tweeted the news network represents America poorly around the world.
“@FoxNews is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!”, tweeted Trump on Saturday.

Black Lives Matter plans ‘black’ Christmas to ‘resist white capitalism’
Black Lives Matter Los Angeles called on people to refuse to buy from white-owned businesses and take that money to invest in the black community from Nov. 25 to Jan. 1. 2018. The boycott serves as an attempt to resist President Donald Trump and his ties to white capitalism, the group added.
[CtH: It might be more to the point for them to tell their people to stop destroying black owned businesses in their own communities.]
NBC News Fires Matt Lauer Over Allegations of Sexual Misconduct
Along with Charlie Rose at CBS, Lauer is the second morning anchor to lose his job over sexual misconduct allegations. Last month NBC fired political commentator Mark Halperin after numerous women claimed he had behaved inappropriately with them while he was working at ABC/Disney.
Almost Every Graduate Of DC High School Was Truant, Yet All Of Them Were Accepted To College
The majority of graduating students at a Washington, D.C. high school did not attend more than six weeks of high school, but still managed to get into college, an investigation into the students’ records found.
The District of Columbia Public Schools system policy states that students who misses a class more than 30 times should fail that class, according to WAMU.
Despite these absences, all of the 2017 seniors got into a college, a feat for which the school received high praise. One student said the class-wide acceptance was a repudiation of all those who said the school — where at one point only 3 percent of students met the reading standards — couldn’t do it.
Some teachers who spoke to the outlet said they felt they had to graduate failing students due to pressure from the high school administration. Other teachers said the lack of expectations allowed students to do what they wanted and not show up for class.
Bernie Sanders Was Just Nominated for a Grammy
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) may not have won the Democratic nomination for president, but he was just nominated for a Grammy Award. Sanders, along with actor Mark Ruffalo, received the nod for the audiobook recording of Sanders’ book “Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In” in the category of Best Spoken Word Album.
Barack Obama won the Grammy in 2006 for “Dreams From My Father” and in 2008 for “The Audacity of Hope.” Bill Clinton received the honor in 2005 for “My Life.”
The original plan for today was to concentrate on the looming threat posed by that fat little brat in NoKo who would be simply pathetic if it were not for the fact he is so dangerous. I still plan to do it, but first things first.
When AG Sessions announced that Obama’s executive order illegally creating DACA was going to be undone by Trump, the reaction was predictable, as it always is when the left doesn’t get their way 100% of the time. It would be a monumental waste of time to post even a smidgen of the wailing from media whores, bloated political layabouts, and glitterati who think their opinion is so much more important than yours, and you need to pay attention because they’re really, really smart.
It is obvious that the alternative to President Trump that we were faced with would be far, far worse, but damn, he is frustrating the hell out of us. He would sign ANY legislation Congress sent him, just to say he did it. The lazy bastards in the GOP are in no hurry to do anything they could be called on and their friends the democrats aren’t about to help.
This really pissed me off:
Trump Explicitly Calls For Amnesty, Says He Might ‘Revisit’ DACA Decision
HE SAID, ESSENTIALLY, SIT ON YOUR ASSES FOR 6 MONTHS AND I’LL REINSTATE DACA. A REAL NO-BRAINER FOR THE DO-NOTHINGS.
“Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do),” Trump tweeted. “If they can’t, I will revisit this issue!”
“Congress now has the opportunity to advance responsible immigration reform that puts American jobs and American security first,” Trump said in a statement following Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement about the rescinding of DACA. Trump’s call for a legislative amnesty is a departure from his campaign rhetoric in which he said there would be “no amnesty.”
Trump to Congress: Legalize DACA (or I Will Revisit)
But by late Tuesday, Trump appeared to have turned into a paper tiger on the key campaign promise to get rid of DACA, saying he would “revisit this issue” if Congress did not “legalize DACA.”
It is unlikely that Trump’s “America First” base, which supported Trump in part because of his focus on illegal immigration, will be satisfied with anything approaching a repeat of DACA — either by Congress or presidential pen.
Perhaps sensing a possible cave, conservative commentator Ann Coulter tweeted before the announcement that millions of voters “not only won’t vote for [Trump] again, but will never vote Republican again if they pass this DACA amnesty.”
WE HAVE COME TO EXPECT NO LESS FROM THESE CARRION CROWS
“Donald Trump’s heartless decision to rescind DACA will force these young people into the shadows. It is a moral disgrace,” Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said in an email to supporters. “Today, show Donald Trump we will not let his cruelty stand. Chip in $3 or more right now.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders: ‘Heartless’ for Pelosi and Dems to Fundraise Off DACA Decision
There Is No Such Thing As a ‘Deserving DREAMer’
I, I, I. Me, me, me. My bills. My ego. My education. My job. My anxiety. Since when did DACA become the Depression and Anxiety Cure for Amnesty-seekers?
It’s this insatiable appetite for collective entitlement that demonstrates the perils of blanket amnesty. Give a privileged political class an inch and they’ll take, take, take until feckless public servants give away their country.
The court ruled: “The judgment is affirmed by an equally divided court.”
BARRY DREAMS OF OWNING AN NBA TEAM AFTER HE FINISHES SCREWING OVER THE COUNTRY… BUT THAT’S ANOTHER STORY
This meant that the decision of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit was upheld, which ruled in favor of 26 states, led by the state of Texas, and against the Obama administration.
With the flick of a pen just before Thanksgiving in 2014, President Obama ordered that nearly five million illegal immigrants be allowed to “come out of the shadows” and work legally in the United States.
“But for more than two decades now, our immigration system, everybody acknowledges, has been broken,” hObama said. “And the fact the Supreme Court wasn’t able to issue a decision today doesn’t just set the system back even further, it takes us further from the country that we aspire to be.”
FOR 100 BONUS POINTS, SOMEBODY NAME THE LAST COURT DECISION THAT HE DISAGREED WITH THAT HE PAID ANY ATTENTION TO. ANYBODY? BEULLER? BEULLER?
F*CK YOU PEOPLE… I WON… IMA DO WHATEVER THE HELL I WANT
On Thursday morning, Supreme Court upheld an injunction on Obama’s 2014 Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents policy by a 4-4 split vote.
The executive order would have granted work permits and legal status to millions of illegal immigrants living in the United States.
“What was unaffected by today’s ruling, or lack of a ruling, is the enforcement priorities that we’ve put in place,” the president stated. “Our enforcement priorities have been laid out by Secretary Jeh Johnson and the Department of Homeland Security are pretty clear.”
“If you keep on blocking judges from getting on the bench, then courts cannot issue decisions,” President Obama said Thursday, in response to deadlock in the Supreme Court over his use of executive authority to liberalize immigration laws. The president blamed the defeat on the refusal of Republican senators to consider his nominee to replace the late justice Antonin Scalia. “That may have been the strategy from the start,” he went on, “but it is not a sustainable strategy. It is a strategy that will be broken by this election. Unless their basic theory is we’ll never confirm justices again.”
