From the minute they get elected their main goal is to get re-elected.
“Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is planning to keep the chamber in session for a significant portion of October if not four entire weeks, costing Democrats key campaign trail days and allowing the Senate to continue its work into the fall, according to five Republican officials,” Everett writes.

Democratic Party files lawsuit alleging Russia, the Trump campaign and WikiLeaks conspired to disrupt the 2016 campaign
40% OF DEMOCRAT VOTERS ACTUALLY BELIEVE THIS CRAP
The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump.
The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/democratic-party-files-lawsuit-alleging-russia-the-trump-campaign-and-wikileaks-conspired-to-disrupt-the-2016-campaign/ar-AAw6YTh?ocid=UE12DHP
Revealed: Dream Democrat Agenda Includes Reparations Behind closed doors, wealthy liberal donors plot universal healthcare, free college, and reparations
The reception, “Way to Win: 2022 Victory Party,” was presented as a look forward at what’s possible if Democrats can be effective in coming elections.
“It’s 2022 and we are celebrating policy victories across the nation: Medicare for All and Free College, and next on the agenda is Reparations,” the group projected, according to an invitation to the event.

New York Attorney General Wants Power To Bypass Trump Pardons New York’s attorney general on Wednesday asked Governor Andrew Cuomo and state legislators to give him and other local prosecutors power to bring criminal charges against people pardoned by U.S. President Donald Trump.
In a letter, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman urged Cuomo and legislative leaders to close a loophole in New York’s double jeopardy law shielding recipients of presidential pardons from state prosecution. https://www.weaselzippers.us/382105-new-york-attorney-general-wants-power-to-bypass-trump-pardons/
Trump lawyer warns POTUS: Michael Cohen will roll over
No one thinks Cohen would turn on Trump in lieu of serving a light sentence of a few years, but if the sentence is stiff, all bets are off. Which raises another question: What could Michael Cohen have possibly done that might warrant decades potentially in a federal pen?
That’s what they’ll threaten him with: life imprisonment,” said Alan Dershowitz, the liberal lawyer and frequent Trump defender who met with the president and his staff over two days at the White House last week. “They’re going to threaten him with a long prison term and try to turn him into a canary that sings.”… https://hotair.com/archives/2018/04/19/trump-lawyer-warns-potus-michael-cohen-will-roll/
Sen. Mitch McConnell Kills President Trump’s Plan to Cut $60 Billion in Spending
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R, KY) has torpedoed President Donald Trump’s plan to cut $60 billion in federal spending, despite a promise to open a “discussion” on the cuts.
Even after supporting and passing a $1.3 trillion increase in spending, McConnell said he would talk about a rescissions package that had the support of the president. However, McConnell has ultimately refused to support the plan, Conservative Review noted. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/04/19/sen-mitch-mcconnell-kills-president-trumps-plan-cut-60-billion-spending/
‘Designated Survivor’ Becomes Third Show This Week to Discuss Removal of President
Republicans Are Fleeing And So Are Their Hopes For Keeping The House
Forty-six House Republicans are either resigning, retiring or seeking other office in 2018. Roughly 22 House members retire each election cycle, so to say the party is going through a seismic shift is not a misnomer.
If the slew of defections weren’t enough, Republicans are trailing their Democratic challengers in 43 races, Politico reported. Some 14 GOP incumbents have less cash on hand than their Democratic counterparts, according to Open Secrets. http://dailycaller.com/2018/04/19/republicans-midterm-election/
Lawmakers Make Criminal Referral on Clinton, Comey, Lynch to DOJ on Steele Dossier
Obama officials and FBI embattled agents also targeted for possible violations of federal law
ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING WILL COME OF IT. YOU NEED AN ATTORNEY GENERAL WHO IS NOT GUTLESS OR COMPROMISED. SESSIONS WILL NEVER DO IT.
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee member Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Florida, along with ten other colleagues sent the letter Wednesday to Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray criminally referring former FBI Director James Comey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for their involvement in the investigations into President Trump and alleged violations of federal law. FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour FBI lawyer Lisa Page, whose anti-Trump text messages obtained by the DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, were also included in the referral. https://saraacarter.com/breaking-lawmakers-make-criminal-referral-on-clinton-comey-lynch-to-doj-on-steele-dossier/
Starbucks to Close 8,000 U.S. Locations for ‘Racial Bias Training’

Pittsburgh police detectives asked to bring riot gear in case President Trump fires Robert Mueller
THE RIOTERS COULDN’T CARE LESS ABOUT MUELLER…THEY GET PAID TO BUST SH!T UP
Pittsburgh police detectives will report for duty with riot gear Thursday, in anticipation of a potential large scale protest should President Trump decide to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
There is a belief that President Trump will soon move to fire Special Prosecutor Mueller. This would result in a large protest within 24 hours of the firing. The protest would be semi-spontaneous and more than likely happen on short notice,” the missive read. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/pittsburgh-police-wear-riot-gear-case-trump-fires-mueller-article-1.3941301
Planned Parenthood Leads Coalition to Spend $30 Million on Democrats in Mid-Terms
THEY’RE GOING ALL OUT IN THEIR CRUSADE TO GET TRUMP
The political arm of taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood is leading a coalition of left-wing groups in an organized effort to spend $30 million to elect Democrats in the mid-term elections this year and regain control of Congress.
The focus of the campaign – dubbed “Win Justice” – will be to mobilize people who vote infrequently but are sympathetic to liberal causes, particularly minorities, women, and young people. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/04/18/planned-parenthood-leads-coalition-spend-30-million-democrats-mid-terms/
Anti-Trump American history textbook ‘blatantly biased,’ critics say
Tarra Snyder, a student at Rosemount High School in Minnesota, who saw a copy of the book sent to her school, told Fox News she was “appalled” after seeing how “blatantly biased” the newest edition of “By the People: A History of the United States” was toward Trump and his voters. She said it also glossed over all issues then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced during her campaign. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/04/16/anti-trump-american-history-textbook-blatantly-biased-critics-say.html
Cuomo giving parolees right to vote via executive order
“I’m going to make it law by executive order,” Cuomo said during a speech to the National Action Network’s annual conference.
“It is unconscionable to deny voting rights to New Yorkers who have paid their debt and have re-entered society,” he said in a statement. “This reform will reduce disenfranchisement and will help restore justice and fairness to our democratic process. Withholding or delaying voting rights diminishes our democracy.” http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/383741-breaking-cuomo-giving-parolees-right-to-vote-via-executive-order
GOP presses for stiff work requirements for food stamps
The work requirements are projected to cut SNAP enrollment by up to 1 million people and would decrease spending on SNAP by $20 billion over 10 years, according to a Congressional Budget Office analysis.
House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R-Texas) said the provision is a commonsense revamp of SNAP and is critical to helping Americans feed their families. SNAP typically represents about 80 percent of farm bill spending. http://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/383810-gop-presses-for-stiff-work-requirements-for-food-stamps

American Muslims launch political campaigns, hope to deliver ‘sweet justice’ to Trump
THIS IS FROM A SAN FRANCISCO NEWSPAPER… TAKE IT FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH
More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many are young and politically inexperienced, and most are long shots. But they represent a collective gamble: that voters are so disgusted by America’s least popular president on record that they’re willing to elect members of America’s least popular religious minority group. https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/American-Muslims-launch-political-campaigns-hope-12836285.php

‘Journalist’ Reveals 2005 Photo of Obama and Racist Farrakhan, Kept Secret to Protect Obama’s Career
I DON’T SEE WHAT ALL THE HUBBUB IS ABOUT… MOST PEOPLE KNEW HE WAS A MUSLIM SOCIALIST IN THE FIRST PLACE. HANGING IN J. WRIGHT’S CHURCH WAS NO CAUSE FOR ALARM. THE MEDIA WOULD NOT ALLOW ANY NEGATIVE INFORMATION TO LEAK OUT ABOUT THEIR SHINY-FACED HEART THROB.
Now they tell us. More than a year after President Obama left office, a journalist is finally revealing a photograph he deliberately hid from the American public for well over a decade, for the explicit purpose of shielding Obama from political backlash. Talking Points Memo has the details, including the story of a ‘panicked’ phone call placed by a Congressional Black Caucus representative, who was desperate to prevent the photo from going public.
Clinton–Obama Emails: The Key to Understanding Why Hillary Wasn’t Indicted
EXCELLENT READ BY ANDREW McCARTHY. OBAMA WAS UP TO HIS ELEPHANTINE EARS IN A HIDEOUS CONSPIRACY.
If Clinton had been charged, Obama’s culpable involvement would have been patent. In any prosecution of Clinton, the Clinton–Obama emails would have been in the spotlight. For the prosecution, they would be more proof of willful (or, if you prefer, grossly negligent) mishandling of intelligence. More significantly, for Clinton’s defense, they would show that Obama was complicit in Clinton’s conduct yet faced no criminal charges.
Trump slams report he tried to fire Robert Mueller as ‘fake news’
President Trump on Friday slammed as “fake news” a bombshell report that he ordered the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller last year – backing down only when the White House lawyer threatened to quit.
“Fake news, fake news. Typical New York Times. Fake stories,” Trump told reporters before he was to deliver a major speech to world and business leaders at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, Switzerland.
One: There is no such crime as Russia/U.S. “Collusion.” The man who is running for President can talk to anyone he pleases. So can anyone who works for him. They can talk about anything except to disclose secret defense material.
Two: The Special Prosecutor is not a friend of Mr. Trump. He’s been in bed with Trump haters from the word “go”. He has no special place in history unless he hurts Trump very badly. He’s not going to just walk away from this without the trophy of inflicting heavy duty damage on Trump.
Three: Mr. Trump does not have to answer anyone’s f–king questions. He’s President. He can’t be cited for contempt. He can’t be indicted. He cannot be prosecuted especially for the non-existent crime of “collusion.” If he does not have to answer the questions and if the media will hurt him as much as they possibly can no matter what he does, why should he answer questions — especially under oath?
Mr. Trump, sir, this man wants to hurt you. Don’t help him. When you get back to D.C. from Davos, explain that you spoke too hastily, that you had not consulted your counsel. That you will have a look at written interrogatories and consider answering them with the help of your lawyers. Mr. Trump, this man, Mr. Mueller, is part of a conspiracy to drive you from office.
CNN’s Symone Sanders Says Trump ‘Can’t Come Back From’ NYT’s Mueller Story
THEY WANT TO BRING TRUMP DOWN SO BADLY THEY’RE CLUTCHING AT STRAWS.
[CtH: I remember seeing a LOT of this kind of thing from our side when Obama was in office. “Surely THIS will bring him down.” Nothing ever came of any of it, so I stopped reading those stories.]
CNN commentator Symone Sanders said Thursday that Donald Trump reportedly attempting to fire special counsel Robert Mueller is “something you just can’t come back from.”
She added, “I think it goes to show that things coming out of this White House cannot be trusted. That’s something I have thought for a really long time, and these are real political implications. If Donald Trump did in fact ask for the special counsel to be fired, that’s something you just can’t come back from, in my opinion.”
McConnell Announces Vote on Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced Wednesday that the Senate will vote next week on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act which would ban abortion at 20 weeks, the point at which science increasingly shows unborn babies feel pain.
“Last week Americans from all across the country, including many from Kentucky, came here to Washington to speak up for unborn children whom our legal system has denied the right to life,” McConnell said, referencing the recent March for Life.
[CtH: A majority of Americans support this restriction on abortion.]
Hennepin County Attorney Convening Grand Jury In Justine Damond Shooting Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman is convening a grand jury to gather evidence in the 2017 shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, but said he still will decide whether Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor will face charges in her death
THE LAWS OF SHARIA SAY NOOR CAN RAPE OR MURDER ANY WOMAN WHO IS NOT A MUSLIM. I PREDICT HE WILL NEVER, EVER BE CHARGED FOR A COLD BLOODED MURDER.
Freeman said nearly two years ago that he would stop using grand juries in police shooting cases. The announcement first came in March 2016 when he was deciding whether to charge two officers in the officer-involved shooting death of Jamar Clark in north Minneapolis the previous November.
In December 2016, Freeman said one of the biggest regrets of his career was using grand juries to investigate police-involved shootings.
Democrats Will Fill Balcony With ‘Dreamers’ For State Of The Union
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats will fill the balcony with so-called Dreamers and other immigrants during President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address next week as the party panned a White House attempt on Thursday to reach a deal on immigration reform
“While the president is busy mingling with the biggest beneficiaries of the GOP tax scam in Davos, Stephen Miller is once again running loose in the White House with his own hateful anti-immigrant agenda,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said, referring to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland. “Now, Miller is trying to ransom the lives of innocent Dreamers for a $25 billion anti-immigrant wish list.
House Republican: White House’s Amnesty Plan ‘Beginning of the End of GOP Majority In the House’
According to Politico reporter Rachael Bade, House Republicans are enraged by an amnesty plan — crafted by Marc Short, Gen. John Kelly, Kirstjen Nielsen, and Stephen Miller — leaked on Thursday that gives a pathway to U.S. citizenship to at least 1.8 million illegal aliens who are enrolled and eligible for President Obama’s DACA program.
“This is the beginning of the end of the GOP majority in the House,” a House Republican told Bade, alluding to the fact that GOP voters would be less likely to support Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections when they are backing an amnesty plan that does not benefit Americans. “In a year when the Democrats impeach Trump, we can point to this moment.”
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.”
In full disclosure I can’t stand this overbearing loudmouth punk. Never could. When I first saw him on SNL I wondered where the hell they found this squinty-eyed little moron. Through massive vote fraud, he actually managed to steal a seat in the US Senate from Norm Coleman. His entire tenure has been fraught with crass, vulgar behavior. During Senate hearings he’s been rude, profane, and boorish. Well, karma’s a bitch, and it looks like it may have bitten him in the hind quarters … finally. Check this out:
‘It’s my right as an entertainer’: Franken staffer comes forward as 7th accuser of sexual misconduct
It appears the worst is not yet behind Al Franken. The Democratic Minnesota Senator was hit by another sexual harassment allegation on Wednesday, bringing the total up to seven.
“He was between me and the door and he was coming at me to kiss me. It was very quick and I think my brain had to work really hard to be like ‘Wait, what is happening?’ But I knew whatever was happening was not right and I ducked. I was really startled by it and I just sort of booked it towards the door and he said, ‘It’s my right as an entertainer.’”
As Franken’s support collapses, Democrats expect resignation
Though the writing appeared to be on the wall, Franken’s departure was not certain. A tweet posted Wednesday evening on Franken’s Twitter account said: “Senator Franken is talking with his family at this time and plans to make an announcement in D.C. tomorrow. Any reports of a final decision are inaccurate.” Late in the day, Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York added his voice. “I consider Senator Franken a dear friend and greatly respect his accomplishments, but he has a higher obligation to his constituents and the Senate, and he should step down immediately,” Schumer said.
WHEN SCHUMER SAYS IT’S TIME TO GO, PACK YOUR BAGS.
[CtH: Makes me sick they’re leaving it up to him, while simultaneously talking about maybe blocking Moore from taking his seat if he wins!]
So, What Happens to Al Franken’s Seat If He Resigns? The walls are closing in on Sen. Al Franken, with a seventh accuser stepping forward today and multiple Democrats calling for his resignation in the aftermath, including DNC chair Tom Perez and more than 20 Senators (and counting).
Franken is expected to give remarks tomorrow and, well, it’d be pretty crazy if he didn’t resign. The former SNL star’s time in public service should be drawing to a close, and provided it did, what happens next in Minnesota politics? Democratic Governor Mark Dayton is given the ability to make a “temporary appointment to fill any vacancy,” according to state law.
In other words, Dayton can pick whoever he wants and this pick is guaranteed to be a Democrat. Which Democrat? That is still up in the air, but leading candidates would have to be Rep. Keith Ellison, Attorney General Lori Swanson, State Auditor Rebecca Otto and Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith.
MY PERSONAL GUESS IS HE’LL PICK THE MUSLIM RACE HUSTLER. HE’S THE MOST RADICAL OF THE BUNCH (I HOPE).
IN OTHER NEWS: REMEMBER THAT IMPEACHMENT VOTE FROM CONGRESSMAN GORK, THE CAVEMAN? YEAH, IT DIDN’T GO SO WELL.
An attempt to impeach Trump today failed 364-58
There are really two ways to look at this effort. One is that this attempt to impeach President Trump got slapped down hard today. The other is that there are now 58 Democrats willing to attach their names to this desperate action which their own leadership is officially against, at least for the moment. Again, the message isn’t ‘No’ it’s ‘Not yet.’ The White House responded by labeling Rep. Green and those who voted with him extremists. “Their time would be better spent focusing on tax relief for American families and businesses, and working to fund our troops and veterans through the holiday season rather than threaten a government shutdown.”
Chelsea Handler Forced To Flee Burning Mansion — Blames President Trump For Wildfires The fires are affecting northern Los Angeles neighborhoods and are forcing some big stars to flee their mansion estates.

Hopefully Senate Republicans will be prepared for it, too. This leftover from yesterday will take on additional importance if Al Franken resigns tomorrow.

John Conyers III, son of disgraced former Rep. John Conyers Jr., allegedly body-slammed his girlfriend and then spat on her during a domestic dispute, according to a new report.

BARACK OBAMA Was Worst Economic President Since 1949 – Now He’s TAKING CREDIT For Trump’s Booming Economy Here is the complete list of average annual real GDP growth by postwar president (in descending order):
President Trump’s first year in office will beat Barack Obama’s best year ever. President Trump has seen quarterly GDP rates of 1.2%, 3.1% and 3.3%. The New York Federal Reserve revised its estimated fourth quarter GDP of 2017 to 3.93. This will give President Trump an annual GDP rate of 2.9 in 2017 or possibly higher.
At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.” He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.”
[CtH: Typical Obama. He has a long history of taking credit for other’s successes, while denying (like Hillary) that any of his numerous failures had anything to do with him. Also, typical of Obama is the backward tilt of his head, so he’s always looking down his nose at everyone. ]
Obama Invokes Nazi Germany, Warns Against Voters Becoming ‘Complacent’ The two-term Democrat expressed the importance of a free press and urged the country not to “grow complacent,” saying “we have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.” Hinz writes Obama then brought up the specter of Adolf Hitler, who came to power in Democratic Germany amid the financial crisis of the 1930’s. “Sixty million people died…” he reports Obama said. “So, you’ve got to pay attention. And vote.” On Twitter, Hinz called the comments “remarkable” and framed them as a rebuke of current president Donald Trump. Take that, @realDonaldTrump: @BarackObama makes clear his view that a complacent America could be headed the way of Nazi Germany. Read his remarkable comments at #EconomicClub of Chicago.
[CtH: Mr. FORMER President, sir, we were paying attention and we VOTED. That’s why Hillary isn’t president.]
Franklin Graham: No President in My Lifetime Has Defended the Christian Faith Like Trump
In a Dec. 1 post on Facebook, the day the tree was lit, Rev. Graham said, “Never in my lifetime have we had a president willing to take a strong, outspoken stand for the Christian faith like President Donald J. Trump has.” “Whether you are Protestant, evangelical, Orthodox, Catholic — all Christians need to get behind him with our prayers,” said Graham.
“For Christians this is a holy season, the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Christmas story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all – the gift of God’s love for all of humanity.
My beloved child bride was tending Miss Olivia, who wasn’t feeling well, so I turned in about 8:00PM. Someone locked the bottom door of our apartment building, which is broken and there is no key for, just the deadbolt that all tenants can open.

I leave for work in an hour and a half so I thought I’d take a minute to post some things I didn’t get around to yesterday.
One week from today is the showdown in Alabama. Trump has finally given his full support to Judge Moore and the RNC is funding his campaign again. This seems to be a sign they know he’s going to win despite their best efforts to screw him over. The left, though, never gives up. They sense that Roy Moore is heading toward victory.
Alabama voters doubt accusations enough that they may feel comfortable sending a message of contempt for Washington, both D.C. and Post
If there was a turning point in Roy Moore’s political fortunes, it was the press conference Gloria Allred held with accuser Beverly Nelson, who emotionally described what she said was a sexual assault behind a diner at which she worked. That press conference gave Moore two things he needed politically: a chance to make Allred an issue in the campaign, and a piece of physical evidence to attack, the handwriting in the yearbook.
Mitch McConnell Folds on Opposition to Roy Moore: ‘We’re Going to Let the People of Alabama Decide’
“Well, I think — we’re going to let the people of Alabama decide a week from Tuesday who they want to send to the Senate. And then we’ll address the matter appropriately,” McConnell said, insinuating that he would back a Senate Ethics Committee investigation of the allegations against Moore when Moore wins on Dec. 12.
[CtH: Meanwhile, they’re letting Democrats decide IF they want to resign?]
I PREDICT IF MOORE WINS AND McCONNELL REFUSES TO SEAT HIM, THERE WILL BE A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS.
Soros Army in Alabama to Register Convicted Felons to Vote Against Roy Moore
HEY, IT HELPED THE DEMOCRATS WIN IN VIRGINIA.
The aim of the effort has been to get as many felons as possible on the roster before last Monday, the deadline to register in order to vote in Alabama’s Dec. 12 senate special election that pits Republican Roy Moore against Democratic challenger Doug Jones. The man spearheading the campaign has stated outright that his effort is meant to ensure a Democratic victory in Alabama.
The thousands of felons reportedly newly registered over the past few weeks were most likely not included in any recent polling on the Alabama senate race put out by major firms.
[CtH: What does it say about the Democratic Party that they feel confident that FELONS will vote for THEIR candidates?]
Supreme Court Allows Trump’s Full Travel Ban In 7-2 Decision
The Supreme Court on Monday allowed the Trump administration to fully enforce the travel ban by residents from six radical regimes and failed states. The travel ban applies to travelers from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen. And officials from North Korea and Venezuela.
Far left Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented.
YOU LIKELY KNEW WHO THE DISSENTERS WERE. TRUMP SHOULD SEND AUTOGRAPHED COPIES TO THE NINTH CIRCUS AND THAT PUNK BUDDY OF OBAMA’S IN HAWAII.
Trump’s Plan To Overhaul National Monuments Law Is All About ‘Righting Past Overreach’
TRUMP SPOKE IN UTAH TODAY AND RETURNED 2 MILLION ACRES THAT OBAMA ILLEGALLY CONFISCATED TO STOP ENERGY EXPLORATION.
Trump will sign orders to shrink the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments as recommended by Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke. However, that’s only the first step in the administration’s plan for the Antiquities Act.
“Public lands should be for the enjoyment of everyone, not just special interests,” will be the Trump administration’s message in this effort
Utah state leaders Greg Hughes and Wayne Niederhauser thanked President Trump for following through on a promise to voters.
“This is great news for the residents of southern Utah who depend on the use of public lands for their livelihoods and the Native Americans who depend on access to Bears Ears lands for their material and spiritual needs.”
Obama Can’t Resist Urge to Bash Trump Overseas
IT’S JUST KILLING HIM TO SEE ALL HIS DEVIL’S WORK BEING UNDONE.
This weekend, Obama proved once again that he is incapable of affording his successor the same courtesy shown by his predecessor. While speaking in Paris, Obama cited a lack of American leadership on climate change.
Feinstein: Case ‘Being Put Together’ Against Trump For Obstruction of Justice
Democrat Dianne Feinstein, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, said on Meet the Press that it is becoming clear that President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey represents an obstruction of justice — a case she believes special counsel Robert Mueller is now focused on.
Dershowitz Slams Feinstein Over Obstruction Argument: ‘Doesn’t Know What She’s Talking About’
“You cannot charge a president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power to fire Comey and his constitutional authority to tell the Justice Department who to investigate, who not to investigate,” Dershowitz said during an interview with Fox News. “We have precedents that clearly establish that.”
Puerto Rican Refugees Could Flip Florida, Put Impeachment in Play
I HEARD THIS ON RUSH TODAY… THIS IS FRIGHTENING
Remember the big hurricane that wiped out Puerto Rico? The publisher of a newspaper in Puerto Rico is reporting that, by their count, 320,000 Puerto Ricans have immigrated to the United States. Seventy percent of them to Florida. Now, the publisher of the Puerto Rican newspaper says that all of these people are very disappointed in the response of the Trump administration to help Puerto Rico recover. She believes by the end of 2018 there will be nearly 400,000 to 500,000 immigrants — think illegal immigrants — in Florida, and, if 60% of them register Democrat, then Florida ever voting for a Republican presidential candidate may be lost for as long as we can see.
REPORT: Trump to Pull U.S. From U.N. Migration Compact
Officials stated that the New York Declaration, a non-binding political declaration unanimously approved in a non-binding resolution in September 2016, “contains numerous provisions that are inconsistent with U.S. immigration and refugee policies and the Trump Administration’s immigration principles.”
Trump Dumps Michelle Obama School Lunch Fiasco – Chocolate Milk Is Back!
I LOVED CHOCOLATE MILK IN SCHOOL
Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has been dismissing Michelle Obama’s signature school lunch rules all year.
“This is not reducing the nutritional standards whatsoever,” Perdue said in May when announcing the Agriculture Department’s intention to bring chocolate milk back to schools. “I wouldn’t be as big as I am today without flavored milk.”
Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed Monday the Republican tax bill is the end of the world. Calling the bill “armageddon,” Pelosi said, “There’s really a very hard way to come back from this.”

House Republicans Already Shooting Down Tax Bill’s Promises
FLAKE ISN’T RUNNING AGAIN BECAUSE HE’D GET HIS ASS WHIPPED. WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM THE MAINE PAIN?
Collins said she received a promise that the Senate would consider two bipartisan pieces of legislation that would ostensibly mitigate the negative effects that could come from the tax bill’s repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate. Flake said he received a “firm commitment from Senate Leadership and the administration” to work on a permanent protections for the soon-to-be-ended Obama-era program that shields children of undocumented immigrants.
Report: FBI Agent Dismissed From Mueller’s Russia Probe Changed Comey’s Language on Clinton to ‘Extremely Careless’
THERE WAS A REASON FOR CHANGING THE WORDING.
The shift from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” which may appear pedestrian at first glance, reflected a decision by the FBI that could have had potentially significant legal implications, as the federal law governing the mishandling of classified material establishes criminal penalties for “gross negligence.”
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, raised questions over why the change was made after receiving documents from the FBI last month, but the identity of who was behind the edit has not been reported until now.
Byron York: In Trump-Russia probe, was it all about the Logan Act?
In short, there’s no doubt the Logan Act, a law dismissed as a joke or an archaic irrelevancy or simply unconstitutional by many legal experts, played a central role in the Obama administration’s aggressive and enormously consequential investigation of its successor.
Democrats began accusing Trump of Logan Act violations in the summer of 2016, immediately after the Republican convention, when Trump sarcastically invited Russia to produce the 30,000-plus emails that Hillary Clinton deleted rather than turn over to investigators. “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said during a July 27 news conference. “I think that you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press — let’s see if that happens, that’ll be nice.”
Most of you missed the show when it went live yesterday because you have jobs and lives and stuff. I didn’t catch it all since I have severe sleep apnea and doze off frequently. I did, however, attempt to put a reasonable summation of the various acts that took the stage. It was more of a tragicomedy, with the democrats performing their normal roles as rude, classless assclowns.
Rep. Jordan presses Jeff Sessions to appoint special counsel
Sessions pushed back on calls for Clinton special counsel. It would take “a factual basis that meets the standard of a special counsel” for the Justice Department to make such an appointment, he said during a heated exchange with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) at a Tuesday House Judiciary Committee meeting.
JIM JORDAN WAS INCREDULOUS THAT SESSIONS WOULD WHINE ABOUT NOT HAVING ENOUGH EVIDENCE IN THE URANIUM ONE DEAL TO WARRANT A SPECIAL COUNSEL WHEN ONE WAS APPOINTED TO PERFORM A RUSSIAN DOSSIER WITCH HUNT WITH NO PROOF.
Rep. Gaetz GRILLS AG Jeff Sessions on Appointing a Special Prosecutor to Investigate Hillary Clinton
Trey Gowdy Meets Jeff Sessions 11/14/2017
Sessions: ‘Looks Like’ Is Not Enough Basis to Appoint a Special Counsel
In a fiery exchange on Tuesday, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions, “What’s it going to take to actually get a special counsel” to investigate the Trump dossier, the unmasking of American citizens, and James Comey’s exoneration of Hillary Clinton, among other concerns.
“It would take a factual basis that meets the standards of the appointment of a special counsel,” Sessions said.
Rep. Trey Gowdy to AG Jeff Sessions: Congress Will Investigate a Politicized DOJ
Under Attorney General Sessions the Department of Justice has ignored any criminal behavior by Hillary Clinton or the Obama administration while launching a Special Counsel to investigate Donald Trump and Russia — a complete Democrat Party hoax.
RUSH HAS ALWAYS MAINTAINED THAT LIBERALS ARE ONLY DANGEROUS WHEN THEY’RE IN POWER. WHEN THEY’RE NOT, THEY’RE JUST FUNNY. THE QUESTIONING AND THE FEIGNED ACTS OF HIGH DUDGEON BY THE DEMOCRATS YESTERDAY WERE SOMETHING TO WATCH.
Rep. Jackson Lee Gets Testy With Jeff Sessions
During a House Judiciary Hearing with Sessions, Jackson Lee asked the AG if he stood by his previous testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee. The Democratic lawmaker’s awkwardly phrased and roundabout question required Sessions to ask her to repeat it several times.
When Sessions was finally able to answer the question, Jackson Lee angrily cut him off again and refused to let him answer.
Senate Will Include Obamacare Mandate Repeal in Tax Bill
GOP will add more tax cuts for the middle class with money raised from eliminating the mandate.
THEY COULD HAVE REPEALED THE MANDATE BEFORE, BUT TIME GROWS SHORT AND WITH 2018 LOOMING, THEY NEEDED SOMETHING TO SHOW THE FOLKS BACK HOME.
“We’re optimistic that inserting the individual mandate repeal would be helpful and that’s obviously the view of the Senate Finance Committee Republicans as well,” McConnell said.
It will raise an estimated $300 billion to $400 billion over the next year that could be used to pay for lowering individual and business tax rates even further.
Sen. John Thune (R-SD), the #3 Republican in the Senate, claims that “there has been a whip count and he is confident Republicans can pass a tax bill that includes a measure to repeal the mandate.”
If this is true, that means the other senators who have voted against Obamacare repeal attempts have agreed to vote for the tax bill with the mandate repeal: John McCain (R-AZ), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and Susan Collins (R-ME).

The action will allow working class Americans to save $2800 a year – the cost of the annual “tax” penalty for those who do not carry insurance for all 12 months of the year.

Democrats Grill Sessions Over Rejection of AT&T-Time Warne Merger Democrats Urged Him to Reject
The allegation that the merger approval process had been subject to political influence is particularly ironic because it was only five months ago that several Democratic senators penned a letter to Sessions urging the Justice Department to block the merger.
The group of Senators–which was led by Al Franken (D-Minnesota) and included Bernie Sanders, Sherrod Brown, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken, and Edward Markey
Jeff Sessions continues to prove he’s Trump’s biggest mistake
The litany of things he couldn’t remember or couldn’t discuss seemed calculated to frustrate rather than enlighten. The fact that he thought non-answers to big questions would be good enough reflects how poorly he fits his job.
His faulty judgment has become a calling card, which is why I’ve argued that appointing Sessions was Trump’s biggest personnel mistake; yesterday’s performance did nothing to change my view.
Distasteful: Matthews Hints Jeff Sessions Being Racist for Attitude Toward Black Dem in Hearing
The baseless and tasteless accusation came in the second of three questions to Jeffries, who was one such member of Congress who participated in the questioning.
The Hardball host then pulled the pin and lobbed the proverbial grenade into the interview: “Did you notice anything sort of ethnic about his attitude in answering your questions, something that rattled him, he seemed disturbed that it was you asking the questions? Did you sense anything there?”
Jeffries replied “not necessarily” and pivoted back to the content of what Sessions told him.

Limbaugh: ‘Search-and-Destroy Mission’ Against Roy Moore Is Really About Mitch McConnell Sending Steve Bannon a Message
“Whether Judge Moore did the deed or deeds or not, what’s really happening here folks, if you really want to know – it’s a multi-faceted search-and-destroy mission here,” Limbaugh said. “But what’s really driving this – do not doubt me about this. But what’s really driving this is Mitch McConnell saying to Steve Bannon, ‘Really? You think you’re going to get your guys elected? You think you are going to get your guys elected and me kicked out of here? Really? Seriously? OK, watch this.’”
McConnell: If Moore wins, he’ll “immediately” face Ethics Committee
I STILL SAY McCONNELL WILL NEVER SEAT HIM.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that if Alabama’s Senate candidate Roy Moore wins, he’ll face an ethics investigation immediately after he’s sworn into office. “It would be a rather unusual beginning,” McConnell said, speaking at a Wall Street Journal event.
“I’d like to save the seat, and it’s a heck of a dilemma when you’ve got a completely unacceptable candidate bearing the label of your party within a month of the election,” he added.
It is at once sickening and maddening that when anything happens you know exactly how the left/media will react. The only reason the democrats have remained a viable political party for as long as they have is they turned our schools into indoctrination centers turning out socially engineered automatons who have no knowledge of America’s history and are barely capable of independent thought. They only see the headline in any story and accept whatever they are told without question.
Someone once said the ill-educated are more easily commanded.
You just knew once this woman came forward making accusations against Judge Moore, an honorable and Godly man, that the media would grab it like a coyote grabbing a dead ground squirrel and rub their noses in it to spread the smell. The newspapers and airwaves were blitzed with scurrilous accusations that many people believed, even if the facts were made up from whole cloth. Meanwhile there’s a trial going on right now of a senator charged with 22 counts of corruption and sex trafficking. No one has heard a word of it. The difference is the senator has a ‘D’ after his name and that makes all the difference,since they are held to no standards of morality.
CtH: I mentioned the Menendez trial and Dearest had literally never heard of it. He likes to listen to Rush and Laura Ingraham, so is usually up on this stuff, but he’s been really busy lately. (Hurrah for the Trump Economy!)
The DC Swamp is an exclusive society that does not accept outsiders. They despise Donald Trump for invading their little clique and want to deprive him of anyone who would not sell him out. They are furiously attempting to ruin Judge Moore and can only do it with the complicity of their republican co-conspirators.
McConnell Implies He May Not Seat Roy Moore if He Wins Election
RINO swamp creatures such as Mitch McConnell are so afraid that Roy Moore will win the Alabama Senate seat that they are pulling out all the stops to block him. And to hell with the voters.
Republican senators and their advisers, in a flurry of phone calls, emails and text messages, discussed fielding a write-in candidate, pushing Alabama’s governor to delay the Dec. 12 special election or even not seating Mr. Moore at all should he be elected. In an interview, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, declined to say whether he would agree to seat Mr. Moore should he win.
Would the Senate invoke Article I, Section 5, clause 2, to “expel” Senator Roy Moore?
[CtH: I’ve seen stories about how Democrat senators have no intention of ousting Menendez EVEN IF HE’S CONVICTED!] The WaPo article does not say how WaPo found these specific women, it only says it heard general rumors:
“While reporting a story in Alabama about supporters of Moore’s Senate campaign, a Post reporter heard that Moore allegedly had sought relationships with teenage girls. Over the ensuing three weeks, two Post reporters contacted and interviewed the four women.”
Alabama is a pretty big state, it would be interesting to know how WaPo identified four women out of millions for a story that has not been uncovered by any of Moore’s many prior political opponents.
Let’s hope more evidence comes out that sheds light on who is telling the truth, and that it comes out before the election.
The allegations against Roy Moore are deeply disturbing and disqualifying. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of. 1:44 PM – Nov 9, 2017
[CtH: Yo, Mitt. Would you have stepped aside if Democrat operatives had made up crap about your past behavior?]
Lindsey Graham Calls for Roy Moore to Step Aside but Defends Bob Menendez All of the ALLEGATIONS against Moore date from the late 1970s and early 1980s — more than 30 years ago.
Compare this to the allegations against New Jersey Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez, who is ON TRIAL for corruption and sex trafficking.
Lindsey Graham says Moore should be dealt with “harshly”, but that Menendez is an “honest” and “honorable man.”
Judge Roy Moore: Establishment Republicans, Democrats, Washington Post May Have Colluded in Smear
Well I think they should see it how it really is, and that’s 40 years I’ve been in the public eye and serving as a deputy prosecutor—as a judge, I’ve been a chief justice twice. I’ve run a Foundation for Moral Law, and now after 40 years—four weeks out from an election, not even mentioned in a primary, they bring charges and try to back them up with other things that sound bad?
ABC’s Raddatz Disgusted by Skeptics of Allegations Against Roy Moore
On Sunday’s Good Morning America, ABC’s Martha Raddatz used her analysis to express her frustration and contempt for such people. “I don’t really know what those voters are waiting for,” she huffed.
Raddatz was dumbfounded that there were people who didn’t believe the allegations. And her contempt was visible as she talked down to them and about their way of thinking:
But I think, generally, you hear, you know, we don’t know and it was 40 years ago. Sort of the things that Roy Moore was saying. That “if,” “if” he did that. And I don’t know really how you take this further. You’ve got four women on the recordwho The Washington Post sought out.
Van Hollen Won’t Say Whether Menendez Should Step Down if Convicted By Jury
[CtH: I used to have such high regard for George and Barbara and George and Laura Bush. So far, Laura hasn’t (to my knowledge) done anything to tarnish that. But I heard that some years ago, Barbara said Sarah Palin should shut up and go back to Alaska. I hoped it was just a scurillous rumor. But now it seems the Georges are bad mouthing Trump. I was impressed during all those years they did not stick their noses into public affairs. So WTH are they doing NOW, shooting off their mouths about a REPUBLICAN president?! I’m so disappointed.]
NOW A WORD FROM AMERICA’S MOST FAMOUS HE/SHE,COMPLIMENTS OF THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER
There was an interesting post at Gateway Pundit this morning.
The Question Must Be Asked: Who Did Deep State Catch AG Jeff Sessions in Bed With?
But what has happened with the swamp?
The answer lies with President Trump’s Attorney General. Day after day, since he was sworn in as AG, Jeff Sessions has failed his President and the American people.
In July, after his son in law was brought in for questioning related to the fake Russia collusion story about President Trump having ties with the Russians, the President fired off at his AG. He started by tweeting – Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign – “quietly working to boost Clinton.” So where is the investigation A.G.
Apparently his collegiality with his former democrat senate buddies precludes him carrying out his prosecutorial duties. Lord knows there should be subpeonas flying over the Russian Dossier and Uranium sales treason. But he won’t budge. He needs to be dismissed if he can’t find it in his heart to do his job.

McConnell Advances Six Judicial Nominees, Base and Republicans Push for More
Senate Republicans confirmed one federal judge on Thursday and set the stage to confirm five more judges next week, including to federal appeals courts across the nation. While these are victories for President Donald Trump, conservatives caution senators that this week’s developments are a good start, but not enough to satisfy them when it comes to the federal courts.
Rep. Frederica Wilson (Dem-Florida) Has Been Missing From Congress For Days, Her Excuse Blames Trump Backlash
The Democrat from Miami was all over the media last week condemning the president for a condolence call he made to the wife of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in an Oct. 4 ambush in Niger. But after creating a torrential firestorm with her attacks, the lawmaker found herself the target of ongoing threats against her, the Miami Herald reported Wednesday. She has since missed 19 votes between Monday, Oct. 23 and Wednesday, Oct. 25, according to the Miami Herald.
[CtH: Wilson: “I behaved badly and it’s all Trump’s fault.” She learned everything she knows from Hillary.]
FBI Informant’s Lawyer — Obama Admin ‘Threatened’ My Client And His Career
Victoria Toensing, the lawyer for the informant, told The Daily Caller’s Vince Coglianese that Obama Justice Department lawyers told her client that “his reputation and liberty [was] in jeopardy” if he did not drop a lawsuit against the government.
On Wednesday, the Trump Justice Department released the informant from a confidentiality agreement, clearing the way for him to testify before several congressional committees about his undercover work at Uranium One, a Canada-based energy company that has ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton and their family foundation.
