President Trump asked Ben Carson to open the Cabinet meeting with prayer.
SHAMEFUL! (But not surprising.)“So far there is near silence from the mainstream media about the blockbuster Politico Magazine investigative report on how the Obama administration from the top down interfered with U.S. law enforcement efforts to take down Hezbollah’s drug running of cocaine into the U.S. in order to facilitate the Iran nuclear deal.”
LOTS MORE BITS AND PIECES IN COMMENTS! Dearest installed and fired up a new electric heater in the living room this evening. Consequently, I am trapped in my office with little else to do while it out-gasses. You’re welcome. 🙂
HUD is matching public housing residents with local job opportunities
Government should be a means of empowerment, not dependency, as well as a safety net. As President Trump discusses building America’s workforce, public housing has a role in that discussion. Those who receive housing assistance must have a path toward jobs, wealth creation and economic improvement. We must remove attitudes, regulations, policies and programs that reinforce dependence.
“As part of the guidance, the government is ordering all of its properties to comply with ‘shared sleeping quarters or shared bathing facilities’ – giving predators an even bigger foothold to exploit,”according to the Family Research Council (FRC). “And as usual, faith-based groups that partner with the federal government will have to comply – no matter what their moral objections may be.”
The good news, according to FRC, is it’s not so much a matter of if, but when, Carson will reverse this regulation.
Daughter’s bonfire blowout is tomorrow night. Ex-BIL works for a meat company and he’s furnishing the ribs and pulled pork. Yours truly is bringing his baked beans, laced with mustard, brown sugar, barbecue sauce and bacon. Nothing like good food, a roaring fire on a chilly night, and lots of kids running around without a care in the world.

White House Warns Trump Not to Attack First Lady After She Savages Him
THE ONLY CONSOLATION TO HILLARY TAKING OVER AS DICTATOR, IF YOU CAN CALL IT THAT, IS THAT WE’LL FINALLY BE RID OF THIS GRACELESS COW COME JANUARY
“The fact is in this election we have a candidate for president of the United States who over the course of his lifetime and the course of this campaign has said things about women that are so shocking, so demeaning, I simply will not repeat anything here today,” she said at a campaign rally in New Hampshire.
Language that has been painful for so many of us,” she continued. “Not just as women, but as parents trying to protect our children and raise them to be caring, respectful adults. And as citizens who think our nation’s leaders should meet basic standards of human decency.”
Mooch Scared Of Trump: His “Rhetoric Is Frightening, It Hurts” Clinton Foundation Donors Expected ‘Benefits In Return For Gifts’
The blistering review — made public Thursday by WikiLeaks — described a tax-exempt public foundation with none of the independent oversight required under federal charity law. The Clinton Foundation reported $187 million in net assets in 2011.
“This was bright line illegal,” Wall Street analyst and philanthropy expert Charles Ortel told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “This is a rogue charity that was out of control for years. And the trustees elected to not correct them. We’re not talking about people with no knowledge of the laws. These are people who can’t claim ignorance.”
The foundation was then led by director Terry McAuliffe, Bill’s most successful political fundraiser and former chairman of the Democratic National Committee who is now Virginia’s governor. McAuliffe gave the Clintons a $1.35 million gift that allowed them to buy their 11-room Chappaqua, New York, mansion in 1999.
Hillary Jokes With Ellen About When She’s In White House — SHE THINKS IT’S OVER!
Hillary Clinton is taking the next week off from campaigning.
She will meet with her big donor friends.
That’s all she has planned.
Hillary will let the media do her work for her.
ALL SHE HAS TO DO IS SMILE AND WALK AWAY WITH THE PRESIDENCY
Voter Fraud Is Real. Here’s The Proof
Data suggests millions of voter registrations are fraudulent or invalid. That’s enough to tip an election, easily.
It would be silly to assume cases that have been discovered are the only cases of fraud. Indeed according to a Pew Research report from February 2012, one in eight voter registrations are “significantly inaccurate or no longer valid.” Since there are 146 million Americans registered to vote, this translates to a stunning 18 million invalid voter registrations on the books. Further, “More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters, and approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.” Numbers of this scale obviously provide ripe opportunity for fraud.

Obama plans overhaul of child support payment rules for prisoners
The Obama administration, in its final weeks, plans to ease the legal obligations on prisoners to pay for child support while they are locked up, targeting practices that critics say can saddle ex-convicts with crippling debts.
As the first black president of a nation that incarcerates a disproportionately large number of black and Latino men, Obama has made it a priority to address problems that make it difficult for released inmates to reenter society.

WELCOME TO THE DONALD TRUMP MOCK-A-THON
The ABC late-night host plans to lead a live broadcast after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump square off for the last time in a formal debate setting. Guests for that night’s show include actress Gal Gadot, and Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson. Ken Bone, who has come to some notice after asking a question about energy policy in the recent second debate, will serve as a special guest correspondent reporting from Las Vegas.
Dr. Ben Carson and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough got into a heated exchange on Friday morning after Carson referred to Scarborough and his hosts as “you people in the media.”

Houston 911 operator hung up on thousands of calls because she didn’t ‘want to talk to anyone’
BEHOLD! SEE WHAT AFFIRMATIVE ACTION HATH WROUGHT!
That person, who identified herself as Crenshanda, was 43-year-old Crenshanda Williams, a former 911 operator who on Tuesday was charged with two misdemeanor counts of interference with an emergency telephone call.
According to police, Williams did a whole lot more than hang up in these two instances, though. They claim that between October 2015 and March 2016, she had thousands of “short calls,” which lasted for 20 seconds or less, much like the two above.
“This is Officer Molten. I’m driving on 45 South right now and I am at . . .’” the call began, but she immediately hung up, KIAH reported. Before she did, though, the recording included Williams responding, “Ain’t nobody got time for this. For real.”

Young Actress Walks Off Set, Can’t Say Clinton is Honest in New Ad
“There is so much at stake in this election, and that’s why I’m supporting Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy and… Can we cut?” she says as she interrupts the shoot.
“What’s the problem?” the director asks.
“I can’t say these words,” the woman says. “I just don’t believe what I’m saying.”
The director says, “but you’re an actress.”
“I’m not that good of an actress,” the woman says before walking off the set. “Honest and trustworthy… give me a break.”
THEY’RE NOT AS STUPID AS YOU THINK THEY ARE, YOU CONTEMPTIBLE PRICK
“They believe climate change cost them all the coal jobs, and they think I sold them out after they voted for me twice, because I agree with it, too,” he said.
This is after he said Hillary Clinton made him visit the state.
“Hillary made me go–although I wanted to–to West Virginia,” he said.
This week’s all-out media assault on Ben Carson’s honesty and integrity has yielded big gains for Carson’s campaign. Disgusted voters sent him $3.5 million dollars, much of it from a wide spectrum of small, grassroots donors. Conservative Intel described Carson’s mailing list “the stuff of legend among political professionals and rival campaigns.”
Remember all those times we were accused of being dirty racists for wanting to know about Obama’s past? Remember how the media never ever let Dan Quayle off the hook for that time he misspelled “potato”?
Obama was toutedas the “smartest kid in the class”, “smartest man in any room”, and “smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency”, but there is absolutely no evidence that any of that is remotely true.
He has never allowed his academic transcripts and various test scores to be made public. But if reporters dig hard enough, they can often get such things leaked. The MSM didn’t bother; they just kept repeating the “smartest” meme and said voters who wanted to see documentation were being racists.
The evidence we have public access to suggests Obama is nothing special in the brains department. Yes, he graduated from Harvard, but so did both George W. Bush and Mitt Romney. Obama earned a law degree; Bush earned a business degree; Romney earned both simultaneously.
Remember when Lefties proffered as proof of Dubya’s alleged stupidity that he pronounced nuclear “nucular”? Remember when they totally ignored it when Barry O said “corpse-man” in the same speech where he got the corpsman’s name wrong?
I have a DVD in which a Ph.D. in Nuclear Science also pronounces the word “nucular” … repeatedly. It’s nothing more than a regional dialect thing. So far as I know, “corpse-man” is just absurdly, offensively wrong, particularly coming from the Commander-in-Chief who should know how to pronounce military ranks, dontchathink?
Obama reads “Corpsman” as “Corpse Man”, Gets the Man’s Name Wrong[:54]
The MSM’s faux outrage over Ben Carson suggesting he was once offered a “full scholarship” to West Point falls flat with anyone who remembers how they ignored the time Obama said that there are 57 states in the U.S., and the time he said that the leader of Canada is a “president”, and those times when he said that the language of Austria is “Austrian” and the language of Afghanistan is Arabic, and that time he said that America is “20 centuries” old, and that time when he said 10,000 people had been killed by a Kansas tornado that actually killed 12, and that time he credited 1965 Selma march for inspiring his birth in 1961.
The stinking media even yawnedthat time he said it would be “unprecedented” for the Supreme Court to invalidate a law passed by Congress. I mean … really? Shouldn’t a former “professor of constitutional law” know more about … you know … constitutional law?
Yes, Obama was elected president of the Harvard Law Review, but it was at a time when popularity and being black mattered more than scholarship. He had no scholarship to speak of, having published only one short, poorly written article for the HLR.
After graduation,he joined an undistinguished law firm, where he tried no cases. He was also never more than a part time instructor at the University of Chicago Law School. The tenured law professors reportedly hated him because he was “lazy, unqualified.” One said that he “had the lowest intellectual capacity in the building.”
Obama was also lauded for his elocutionary skills.But when he’s off the teleprompter, he often rambles, loses his train of thought, and says “uh uh uh” a lot. His beautifully written first autobiography was demonstrably written mostly by Bill Ayers and his second book is as ineloquent as his off-prompter speechifying.
