Sanders: White House Looking At Stripping Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Hayden, Rice, McCabe Of Security Clearances
THERE IS NO REASON FOR THEM TO RETAIN IT. THE PRESS, AS USUAL, WENT NUTS.
“Making baseless accusations of improper contact with Russia or being influenced by Russia against the president is extremely inappropriate,” Sanders continued. “And the fact that people with security clearances are making these baseless charges provides inappropriate legitimacy to accusations with zero evidence.”
The pile of links just keeps a-gettin’ higher. I may have to break this into two different posts. That’s okay, DW isn’t around and there’s nothing on my busy social calendar today. Lucky you.
THE PRESIDENT SPOKE AT THE NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER AND YESTERDAY ADDRESSED A PACKED HOUSE OF 9,000 AT THE NRA CONVENTION Worshippers Filled U.S. Capitol to Mark National Day of Prayer Continue reading →
Two events occurred last night. One was a positive, upbeat, enthusiastic rally in Michigan led by President Trump. The other was a gathering of bottom feeding, miserable smut mongers with no compassion for anyone who doesn’t belong to their clique. The dichotomy was stark.
THIS IS FROM THE AP; TAKE IT FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH Trump takes aim at familiar targets at Michigan rally
Trump has been urging voters to support Republicans for Congress as a way of advancing his agenda. In his rally in Washington Township, he repeatedly pointed to Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan as one of the Democrats who needed to be voted out.
After saying Stabenow was standing in the way of protecting U.S. borders and had voted against tax cuts, Trump said: “And you people just keep putting her back again and again and again. It’s your fault.” http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-takes-aim-at-familiar-targets-at-michigan-rally/ar-AAwt5tc?ocid=UE12DHP
IT GOT REALLY UGLY REALLY FAST AT THE WCHD. A FOUL-MOUTHED, HATEFUL, UNFUNNY BITCH FROM “COMEDY CENTRAL” PISSED OFF JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY.
THERE IS VIDEO OF THIS FILTHY SLUT SPEWING HER CRAP, BUT I WOULDN’T POLLUTE THIS SITE WITH THAT KIND OF CONTAMINATION. Screeching Moonbat Michelle Wolf’s Jokes Fall Flat, Or Offend, At DC Dinner
Comedian Michelle Wolf performed at Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner in Washington — but not all members of the audience stayed for the entire act.
Apparently offended by many of the comedian’s jabs at President Donald Trump and members of his administration, many attendees sat in silence, or simply got up and walked out, Politico reported.
“President Trump isn’t here, if you haven’t noticed,” Wolf, 32, a writer for Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” told the gathering. “I would drag him here myself, but it turns out the president of the United States is the one p— you’re not allowed to grab.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/04/29/comedian-michelle-wolfs-jokes-fall-flat-or-offend-at-dc-dinner.html
Trump: White House Correspondents Dinner Was a ‘Big, Boring Bust’
Trump skipped the dinner again this year and instead held a campaign-style rally in Michigan, touting his economic record and the current peace process with North Korea. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was one of the few people from the Trump administration to attend the dinner.
A writer for “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah,” Michelle Wolf, was this year’s comedian at the dinner, and her performance got a mixed reception. Some reporters thought Wolf’s jokes didn’t help with the perception that they are liberal and out of touch with most of America. Others thought her attacks on Sanders were too personal and harsh. http://freebeacon.com/culture/trump-white-house-correspondents-dinner-big-boring-bust/

Judge: Bars are allowed to throw out Trump supporters
Cheers, Trump haters.
A Manhattan judge ruled Wednesday that there’s nothing “outrageous” about throwing the president’s supporters out of bars — because the law doesn’t protect against political discrimination.
“Anyone who supports Trump — or believes in what you believe — is not welcome here! And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you!” Piatek claims the staff of The Happiest Hour on West 10th Street told him after he and his pals complained about the rude service they were getting from a bartender. https://nypost.com/2018/04/25/judge-bars-are-allowed-to-throw-out-trump-supporters/
Blue city exodus could accelerate because of the GOP tax cut
California is home to some of the most burdensome taxes and regulations in the nation. Meanwhile, its social engineering — from green energy to wealth redistribution — have made many working families poorer. As California begins its long decline, the influx outward is picking up in earnest.
The point of the piece is to suggest one way the blue cities and states could reverse the outward tide is to cut taxes. That’s probably true, but is there any chance of that happening in one-party California? I don’t think so. https://hotair.com/archives/2018/04/24/blue-city-exodus-accelerate-gop-tax-cut/
Federal Judge: Mr. Trump, You Have 90 Days To Restart DACA
DACA WAS NEVER A LAW. IT WAS AN EXECUTIVE ORDER BY EMPEROR OBAMA DURING HIS REIGN OF TERROR.
WE ARE NOW SUBJECT TO A JUDICIAL TYRANNY WHERE ANYONE IN A BLACK ROBE THINKS THEY CAN USURP THE POWER OF THE PRESIDENT. IT’S ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE.
So, here we are. Failed DACA fixes, government shutdowns over illegal aliens, and Democrats turning down the legalization of 1.8 million illegals, putting them on the pathway to citizenship, in exchange for border wall funding. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2018/04/25/federal-judge-mr-trump-restart-daca-n2474307
Rep. Nunes: DOJ Is Stalling on Surrendering Documents to Congress in Hopes That Dems will Win in November
IF NOT FOR McCONNELL, OBAMA WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TO NAME A NEW SCOTUS JUDGE BEFORE HE SLITHERED OUT OF OFFICE.
On Wednesday night Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Sean Hannity to discuss the seemingly endless corruption of the Obama-Trump Department of Justice.
During the discussion Rep. Nunes said the DOJ is stalling on turning over documents to Congress because they want to wait and see if Democrats win in November.
Republicans better wise up and get busy.
They better be wrapping these investigations up by December or it could be too late.
Judge Napolitano Says There’s ‘No Question’ Democrats Tried To Frame President Trump
“It looks like a brazen plot simply to frame the President of the United States,” said host Steve Doocy about the Russia probe.
“Yes, it does,” Napolitano replied. “It looks like it was commenced by his most virulent political enemies. Particularly Sid Blumenthal who’s sort of the fixer if you will, for Hillary Clinton and that branch of the Democratic Party.” http://dailycaller.com/2018/04/24/napolitano-no-question-democrats-framed-trump/
Mueller’s harassment of Hannity may be criminal
Bobby the Mule Mueller used the power of his office to harass Sean Hannity, a critic of Mueller’s witch hunt.
Using judge shopping to get a warrant, Mueller raided Michael Cohen’s office not to get the goods on President Trump — he’s clean — but to do opposition research on one of the few commentators willing to take on Mueller and the vast power of the state he controls.
He earned his money in a rags-to-riches story that included hard work and developing his skills as a communicator. He did not sell permission to Russian oligarchs to buy American uranium.
Hannity fought back, as he refuses to let Bobby the Mule get away with this. http://donsurber.blogspot.com/2018/04/muellers-harassment-of-hannity-may-be.html
Caravan Migrants’ to Regroup in Tijuana Before Crossing, Says Organizer
TRUMP HAS ORDERED THEIR ARREST WHEN THEY CROSS. I SURE HOPE THEY DO.
Two busloads of “caravan migrants” arrived in Tijuana Tuesday evening. The passengers included men, women, and children. After arriving, the passengers were let loose onto the streets of the murder-ridden city. This month alone, nearly 150 people were murdered there, Breitbart Texas’ Robert Arce reported. Nearly 700 people are reported to have been killed since January 1.
Another four busloads are said to be making their way north from Hermosillo, about 430 miles from Tijuana. Parts of the caravan stalled there as migrants discussed what to do about American statements promising they will be denied entry to the U.S. http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2018/04/25/caravan-migrants-regroup-tijuana-crossing-says-organizer/
Late posting today. DW’s check came, had overdue bills to pay, had to get snow tires taken off and highway tires put back on. One was bad and the other one is wearing, so I had to buy another tire. Now I have to have my mechanic check for front end issues. Hopefully just an alignment, but I doubt it. Nothing ever comes easy for me. Then had to get groceries. Money sure don’t last long.
April Ryan Asks Sarah Sanders If Trump Has ‘Thought About Stepping Down’
“With all of this turmoil, particularly last week, has the president at any time thought about stepping down before or now?” Ryan asked, as the press asked repeatedly about President Trump’s anger at the FBI raiding his personal attorney Michael Cohen’s office.
“No, and I think that’s an absolutely ridiculous question,” Sanders replied, calling on another reporter.
Ryan shouted over Sanders that “it’s not a ridiculous question,” before Sanders was able to move on.
She was on all the morning talk shows today and they treated her like royalty.
Fired up donors help Democrats hit early fundraising records
Anti-Trump donors are opening their checkbooks wide this year, helping Democratic candidates set early fundraising records as they hope to send a message in November’s elections.
Democrats running in Senate races across the country have been eager to share their latest fundraising totals with the political universe as they seek to generate a sense of momentum ahead of the midterm elections.
“I think the most important thing that these numbers say is that the Democratic base is very fired up,” said Jennifer Duffy, of the Cook Political Report, a non-partisan campaign tracker.
Paul Ryan won’t seek re-election
I CAN PROMISE YOU THIS SEAT WILL FLIP DEMOCRAT. HE ONLY HELD OFFICE BECAUSE EVERYBODY IN JANESVILLE KNOWS HIM.
House Speaker Paul Ryan is not seeking re-election and will retire from Congress after this year, the Wisconsin Republican announced Wednesday.
“You realize something when you take this job,” Ryan told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning. “It’s a big job with a lot riding on you … but you also know this is not a job that does not last forever. … You realize you hold the office for just a small part of our history. So you better make the most of it.”
Retirement Avalanche Continues: Another House Republican Announces He’s Finished
IT SEEMS LIKE THE REPUBLICANS WANT THE DEMOCRATS TO GET THE MAJORITY. SOME OF THOSE LEFT WILL GO ALONG WITH IMPEACHING THE PRESIDENT… OVER NOTHING.
Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, told his staff this morning he is retiring.
“Eight years takes its time on you. … There’s got to be an exit strategy at some point,” Ross said in an interview, noting he planned on serving 10 years, or five terms.
He dismissed the suggestion that his retirement had anything to do with a possible Democratic wave, though the open seat will now become a target, while setting off a scramble among Republican hopefuls.
NYT Hot Take: If It’s A Witch Hunt, Why Does Trump Care About Attorney-Client Privilege? Push to Politicize Impeachment May Backfire for Democrats in Midterms
THIS WILL ONLY HAPPEN IF REPUBLICAN VOTERS REALIZE WHAT WE’RE UP AGAINST. DEMOCRATS WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO DESTROY THE PRESIDENT.
The push by a number of prominent Democrats to completely politicize the impeachment process could backfire for them in the midterms, David Axelrod, the political adviser who helped elect Barack Obama to the Presidency in 2008, said on Sunday.
Far left billionaire Tom Steyer, who has dedicated $30 million to electing a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives for the express purpose of impeaching President Trump, thinks virtually any action taken by the President is an impeachable offense.

Schumer slammed for citing skin color in vote against white judicial nominee
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer faced a stern rebuke from congressional colleagues for citing skin color in voting against a white federal judge nominee earlier this week.
Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the Senate floor Wednesday that the nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum, a white lawyer who is a partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough in Greenville, S.C., “speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/03/02/schumer-slammed-for-citing-skin-color-in-vote-against-white-judicial-nominee.html
San Diego State University offering course called ‘Trump: Impeachment, Removal, or Conviction?’
A description of the course says the focus will be on the two constitutional grounds for removing a president from office: “Impeachment and removal (25th Amendment),” KUSI News reported.
It will include lessons on possible charges of the independent counsel and the powers of the president. Students in the class will also learn about “presidential immunity from indictment, and grounds for impeachment, removal, or indictment.” http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/375967-san-diego-state-university-offering-course-called-trump
Texans break early voting record after more Dems get involved I ALLUDED TO THIS IN THE PREVIOUS POST
Early voting in Texas’ largest 15 counties has hit an all-time high for a non-presidential election year ahead of congressional primaries in the state on Tuesday.
According to data posted on Saturday by the Texas secretary of state’s office, 885,574 Texans voted in the 11 days of early voting that ended Friday, the Austin American-Statesman reported.
That figure far surpasses the 592,153 Texans who voted early in 2014.
Early voting among Democrats surged this year, the Statesman reported. 465,245 Democrats cast their ballots early, compared to 420,329 Republicans. That represents a significant change from 2014, when only 226,730 Democrats voted early, compared to 65,423 Republicans. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/texans-break-early-voting-record-after-more-dems-get-involved/ar-BBJPrWT?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=UE12DHP
Statue of Marion Barry, controversial former mayor, unveiled in Washington
THE INSCRIPTION SHOULD READ: “THE BITCH SET ME UP!”
To some in Washington, D.C., he was a “living legend” who advocated for the city’s poor. To others he was a controversial figure remembered for being re-elected mayor despite serving a prison sentence for possession of crack cocaine.
The move to honor Barry, who died at age 78 in 2014, may seem mystifying to non-Washingtonians. But among Barry’s supporters, the statue is an appropriate tribute to a legitimate D.C. icon — a man so popular and influential that he walked out of federal prison and immediately began winning elections again with one of the most improbable comebacks in American political history. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/03/04/statue-marion-barry-controversial-former-mayor-unveiled-in-washington.html
How A Pathetic Republican Party Is Allowing ‘The Resistance’ To Run The Score — And The GovernmentSenate Republicans are heading toward midterm elections with control of their chamber and the biggest advantage any majority party has had since 1790. Yet every week, the Democrats are allowed to work just 2.5 days before returning home to duke it out with their Republican challengers. That is, Mitch McConnell is allowing Democrats to hit the campaign trail hard while obstructing 139 of the president’s nominees
Executive governance is out of style. On Friday, while 26 Senate Democrats up for re-election went home to their states or elsewhere to speak and raise money with which to batter Republicans in November, 139 of the White House’s nominees languished in positions from undersecretary for arms control and international security affairs to director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center http://dailycaller.com/2018/03/04/mitch-mcconnell-senate-resistance-obstruction/
GOP Rep: POTUS and His Family Are Being Put Through Hell For Winning an Election – There’s No Evidence They Committed Any Crime Earlier this week, GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin sent a letter to AWOL Attorney General Jeff Sessions urging him to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate FISA abuses and how/why Hillary’s probe ended and Trump’s Russia probe began.
Zeldin’s letter came after Sessions told reporters he would have IG Horowitz investigate the FISA abuses. We need a special counsel; the Inspector General does not have prosecutorial power.
At the time of this publication, thirteen GOP Reps. have signed Zeldin’s letter.
On Sunday, Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) said from his Twitter account, “.@realDonaldTrump & family being investigated for winning election w/no evidence they committed any crime to win the election.

The Woman in the High Castle
WE DIDN’T DODGE A BULLET, WE DODGED AN ICBM
In a dystopian fantasy in The New York Times at the end of the year, the columnist Bret Stephens reminded us of the horror that might have been:
Tax cuts. Deregulation. More for the military; less for the United Nations. The Islamic State crushed in its heartland. Assad hit with cruise missiles. Troops to Afghanistan. Arms for Ukraine. A tougher approach to North Korea. Jerusalem recognized as Israel’s capital. The Iran deal decertified. Title IX kangaroo courts on campus condemned. Yes to Keystone. No to Paris. Wall Street roaring and consumer confidence high.
And, of course, Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court.
Thank God, as Stephens himself so forcefully predicted, Donald Trump was crushed in the November 2016 election and the nation was spared those and other right-wing depredations.
Instead, Hillary Rodham Clinton, in the landslide that everyone who was anyone predicted, was elected the 45th president of the United States and lost no time in fulfilling her campaign promises—and even going beyond what she had promised in many areas. […]
“Hate speech is not free speech,” Clinton argued in a rousing Oval Office speech, which is widely credited with inaugurating the lawsuit now before the Supreme Court to update the outmoded provisions of the First Amendment for the 21st Century. “Thomas Jefferson could not have foreseen Fox News, Breitbart, or Rush Limbaugh,” Clinton said, “and it’s pretty clear that our Founding Fathers and Mothers would not have countenanced the hurtful lies masquerading as news that such divisive outlets foster.” https://amgreatness.com/2018/03/05/woman-high-castle/
Tweet Of The Day… Maxine Waters Promises Slavery Reparations For Blacks If Dems Take House In Midterm Elections Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters said during an event in Selma, Alabama on Saturday that she would “be happy” to secure financial reparations for black Americans.
Waters said as long as Democrats win back the House in 2020 and are able to get a president who is friendly to their agenda, it would be “wonderful” to get reparations.
“I’d be happy to do that. That’s no problem,” Waters said when an event attendee pressed her to support reparations. http://dailycaller.com/2018/03/05/maxine-waters-promises-reparations-for-black-americans/

Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran Announces Resignation, Will Depart April 1
THIS WALKING CADAVER WOULD NEVER BEEN RE-ELECTED IN THE FIRST PLACE, BUT FOR THE TAMPERING BY McCONNELL BUYING VOTES TO HELP HIM DEFEAT CHRIS McDANIEL
While he survived a brutal and controversial Senate primary in 2014, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, citing his failing health, is resigning effective April 1. A special election will be held to finish the remainder of his term that ends in 2020. If no one gets above 50 percent, a runoff will be held. For now, Gov. Phil Bryant will appoint an interim senator to fill the vacancy until the election. Cochran’s colleague, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MI), is up for re-election this year and is facing a challenge by state Sen. Chris McDaniel. McDaniel challenged Cochran in 2014 https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2018/03/05/mississippi-senator-thad-cochran-announces-resignation-will-depart-april-1-n2457819
Mike Espy to run for Thad Cochran’s Senate seat
Espy became Assistant State Attorney General from 1984 to 1985, when he was elected as a Democrat to the 100th Congress in 1986 from Mississippi’s 2nd congressional district.
He defeated two-term Republican Webb Franklin to become the first African-American to represent Mississippi at the federal level since Reconstruction.
He was reelected three times.
Just 20 days after taking office for his fourth term, Espy resigned after being appointed Secretary of Agriculture in the Cabinet of President Bill Clinton. He served as Secretary of Agriculture in 1993–94. http://www.msnewsnow.com/story/37652112/mike-espy-to-run-for-thad-cochrans-senate-seat
The Silicon Valley elite’s latest status symbol: Chickens Their pampered birds wear diapers and have personal chefs — but lay the finest eggs tech money can buy
AS AN OLD FARM BOY, I AM VERY WELL AWARE OF THE NUANCES OF THE RAISING OF POULTRY.
I JUST HAD TO POST THIS TO SHOW YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE ABOUT HOW LOONEY CALIFORNY HAS BECOME.
In America’s rural and working-class areas, keeping chickens has long been a thrifty way to provide fresh eggs. In recent years, the practice has emerged as an unlikely badge of urban modishness. But in the Bay Area — where the nation’s preeminent local food movement overlaps with the nation’s tech elite — egg-laying chickens are now a trendy, eco-conscious humblebrag on par with driving a Tesla.
In true Silicon Valley fashion, chicken owners approach their birds as any savvy venture capitalist might: By throwing lots of money at a promising flock (spending as much as $20,000 for high-tech coops). By charting their productivity (number and color of eggs). And by finding new ways to optimize their birds’ happiness — as well as their own.
They are selecting for desirable personality traits (such as being affectionate and calm — the lap chickens that are gentle enough for a child to cuddle), rarity, beauty and the ability to produce highly coveted, colored eggs.
All of it happens in cutting-edge coops, with exorbitant veterinarian bills and a steady diet of organic salmon, watermelon and steak. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2018/03/02/feature/the-silicon-valley-elites-latest-status-symbol-chickens/?utm_term=.0ca372fe0f26
The Supreme Court Issues Its Decision On Trump’s DACA Appeal
In an extraordinary procedural move, the government appealed directly to the Supreme Court. Under normal procedure, the government would challenge Alsup’s order at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a principle antagonist to Trump’s ambitions throughout his presidency. Solicitor General Noel Francisco, the government’s Supreme Court lawyer, argued the case required the tribunal’s urgent attention, as Alsup’s decision “requires the government to sanction indefinitely an ongoing violation of federal law being committed by nearly 700,000 aliens.”
The justices rarely grant such requests. http://dailycaller.com/2018/02/26/supreme-court-daca-appeal/

There’s much more than free speech at stake here, though. If the court sides with Janus, unions across the country stand to lose millions of dollars a year in guaranteed revenue — potentially enough to cripple their operations.

Michelle Obama’s upcoming memoir replicates Obama’s road to power to a T
As Lifson notes, the Democrats are in bad shape, at least if they run on policies. But if they can galvanize the black vote, which is what they did with Obama, they are in a position to win. They are sure they can’t win if they don’t. What would be more logical than for Michelle Obama to write an identity politics book, in first person, Oprah-style, as a backdrop “narrative” to galvanize those voters? The Obamas always were about “narrative” as a means of concealing their policy objectives by promoting their personas. Obama’s “mind-meld,” and right hand man, after all, was fiction writer and major Ben Rhodes. Ol’ Ben knew more than anyone about creating “narratives.” https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2018/02/michelle_obamas_upcoming_memoir_replicates_obamas_road_to_power_to_a_t.html#ixzz58F5az0lS

It’s Not About Saving Lives: Democratic Senator Says Gun Debate Will Help His Party In Midterms
Did anyone catch Sen. Bill Nelson’s (D-FL) rather gratuitous swipe at Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday? CNN held a town hall event in Sunrise, Florida hosted by Jake Tapper, where National Rifle Association Dana Loesch and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) literally ventured into the lion’s den. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) also participated. It was a two-hour bashing of Rubio, the NRA, Loesch, every law-abiding gun owner, and every supporter of the Second Amendment. It was show trial, a North Korean kangaroo court that resembled something out of the two minutes of hate from Orwell’s 1984. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2018/02/24/its-not-about-saving-lives-democratic-senator-says-gun-debate-will-help-his-par-n2453485
Sarah Huckabee Sanders cops to making a rare mistake and says Trump has not confirmed for WHCD yet – but WILL go to Gridiron
The White House told DailyMail.com Monday that President Trump would attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but then walked it back
The president will, however, attend this year’s white-tie Gridiron dinner, an event also hosted by Washington journalists
Trump skipped both the Gridiron and the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner last year as he warred with the so-called ‘fake news’
The president’s willingness to go to the Gridiron suggests he may be open to attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner as well
President Obama said a President Trump would bring ‘change’ to the White House, and then this image flashed to the audience of the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner
As country listens to Florida teens, Black Lives Matter youths feel ignored
THIS IS THE CRAP IN THE PAPERS I DELIVER EVERY DAY.
The young people of Black Lives Matter are hurt. And they have every right to be.
When they were protesting in the streets of cities across America, much of the country didn’t bother to listen to their message. They were not embraced by the mainstream for their bravery, their determination or resolve to bring attention to reckless police killings that disproportionately impact young African-Americans.
In a tweet last week, Oprah Winfrey said the inspiring youths in Florida reminded her of the “Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.” She pledged to match George and Amal Clooney’s $500,000 donation to the youths’ March for Our Lives planned for March 24. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/columnists/glanton/ct-met-florida-teens-black-lives-matter-dahleen-glanton-20180223-story.html

Did the PA Supreme Court Just Make it Easier for Dems to Win in the Midterms?
An important swing state may have just swung in Democrats’ favor. Although Republicans hold 13 House seats in Pennsylvania to Democrats’ five, a new ruling from the state supreme court appears to give the Democrats a favorable new congressional map.
THE DEMOCRATS WILL PICK UP 4-5 EXTRA SEATS BEFORE A BALLOT IS CAST. THEY ARE GOING TO STEAL THIS ELECTION IN ORDER TO GET A MAJORITY AND IMPEACH TRUMP. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2018/02/20/pa-gerrymandering-n2451620
Suspected poacher killed, eaten by pack of lions A suspected poacher was fatally mauled and eaten by a pack of lions near a national park in South Africa, leaving behind just the man’s “head and some remains,” police said.
A police spokesman in Limpopo told AFP that a loaded hunting rifle was found near the man’s body early Saturday at a private game park in Hoedspruit, west of Kruger National Park, which contains large numbers of the Big 5 game species — lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo.
“It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions,” Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP. “They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left

The ever-classy (not) WaPo had this to say about Trump’s visit to Florida: He “followed a tried-and-true playbook for responding to crises, as he has a mass shooting in Las Vegas and a hurricane in Texas: leaning on praise of the responders — casting their response in hyperbolic terms — while making quick and choreographed stops that do not draw protesters or detractors or large crowds.”
Sarah Sanders responded:
I’m reminded of that time that then-Candidate Obama CANCELED a scheduled visit to war-injured soldiers because the hospital wouldn’t let his camera crew in.
The FBI failed to properly investigate the Florida shooter after numerous warnings.Maybe they were too busy trying to impeach Trump to do their jobs.
This is the fourth mass shooting where the FBI had files on the murderers beforehand. The others were Army Maj. Nidal Hassan who committed the 2009 Fort Hood shootings, the Tsarnaev brothers who committed the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, and Omar Mateen who committed the2016 Pulse nightclub shootings.
