Probably won’t get back here today. After breakfast with my uncles, DW wants to go looking for a different car. We still have a balance on her current vehicle. The salesman tries to con you into thinking the dealership will pay off the old unit, when they just roll it into the new loan. I love my wife dearly and indulge her whenever possible. But money’s money. I pay the bills, so if I don’t get what I want some salesman is going to end up thinking: ‘Man, what a jerk.’
Diamond and Silk went to the hill yesterday to testify about being screwed by Facebook. A couple race-baiting black congresscritters (are there any other kind) tried to bully them into saying Trump paid them, they badmouthed the Kenyan and made a lot of money. Only Democrats are supposed to do that. Not by working, mind you, but by confiscating it from those that earned it.
Diamond and Silk Opening Statement At House Judiciary Committee Hearing 4/26/18
Diamond and Silk SHUT DOWN Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee at Facebook Censorship Hearing
Sheila Jackson Lee first asked Ms. Hardaway if she was ever paid by the Trump campaign.
Lynnette Hardaway (Diamond): No. We have never been paid by the Trump campaign.
Sheila Jackson Lee: 5$? 100$?
Lynnette Hardaway (Diamond): We have NEVER been paid by the Trump campaign… We have NEVER been paid. We have NEVER been paid…. Hold on a minute, Ms. Jackson. Don’t try to mince my words!
Well, maybe not THAT cold, but pretty damn cold. This is the third day if single digit temperatures. Still, we’ve only had a smidgen of snow, nothing like they were hit with on the east coast. Why do they get so much snow every year? Because they deserve it for voting democrat.
WHY THE HELL WON’T HE JUST GO AWAY? Barack Obama to Prince Harry: Hashtags Don’t Bring About Change
Former President Barack Obama told Britain’s Prince Harry in a BBC 4 interview that hashtags alone do not bring about social change.
The Obama administration was notorious for using hashtags in lieu of actual diplomacy or military action to address urgent problems.
The strategy reached its zenith (or nadir) in 2014, when First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted “#BringBackOurGirls” in response to the mass abduction of Nigerian schoolgirls by the terrorist group Boko Haram. http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/12/27/barack-obama-bbc-prince-harry-hashtags-dont-bring-change/
‘Not Welcome’: London’s Muslim Mayor Repeats Calls to Cancel Trump Visit
Stating he had “previously called on Theresa May to cancel her ill-judged offer of a state visit to President Trump”, the mayor made clear he feels a visit by President Trump would be against the “interests and security of Londoners”. Khan said :”It is clear that any official visit here would not be welcomed.”
Bill de Blasio Compares Himself to Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Mahatma Gandhi
[CtH: Wow, and they say Trump has a big ego?!]
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says he is destined for greatness—so much so that he is comparing himself to Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Mahatma Gandhi.
Democratic insiders, however, bristle at the thought of de Blasio running for nationwide office or taking the national stage, saying that he is full of himself and does not command respect from his colleagues.
“It’s laughable to think that the response to Trump is going to come from a progressive mayor whom progressives don’t rally around and mayors don’t respect,” said one high-placed Democratic operative.
HEIR APPARENT: DeBlasio Chooses Bernie To Swear Him In For Mayor
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio will be sworn in for his second term by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, City Hall revealed Wednesday.
De Blasio’s choice is surprising given his enthusiastic support of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and his long maintained ties to the Clinton family. These ties were on full display during his first swearing in presided over by former President Bill Clinton, who de Blasio served under in the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
TRUMP EFFECT: Kennedy Center Honors Ratings Crash to All-Time Low After President Boycotts Ceremony
OBAMA NEVER MISSED ONE OF THESE CIRCLE JERKS WHERE THE GLITTERATI WOULD FAWN OVER HIM. TRUMP DIDN’T NEED THIS CHARADE. GOOD ON HIM.
President Donald Trump announced earlier this year he would not attend the December 3 awards ceremony, nor hold a White House reception, after several liberals being honored, including Norman Lear, said they would boycott the White House reception for the honorees. It was the most public snub of a president by a Kennedy Center honoree since Paul McCartney canceled on George W. Bush, rescheduling his award when Barack Obama was president.
The American people responded to the Trump-hating liberals by not watching the Kennedy Center Honors broadcast. CBS’ broadcast of Kennedy Center Honors clocked its lowest ratings result in people-meter history, dating back to 1987.
Democratic Appointees Reluctant To Give Trump More Judgeships To Fill
THE DEMOCRATS HAVE COMPLETELY POLITICIZED THE JUDICIARY.
[CtH: If their appointees weren’t using their positions to force unlegislated laws on us, this wouldn’t be an issue.]
Two Democratic appointees to federal appeals courts expressed reluctance to retire during President Donald Trump’s administration, claiming the president has not fielded impressive judicial nominees.
Two unnamed judges told BuzzFeed News that they have concerns about the temperament of Trump’s judicial candidates, despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of his nominees attained approving reviews from legal trade associations.
One circuit judge claimed Trump’s nominees lack the qualifications necessary for judicial service.
Democrats Still Can’t Bring in the Cash They Desperately Need
The Democratic National Committee had $6.3 million in the bank on Dec. 1, while the Republican National Committee had six times as much, at $40 million, according to documents the parties filed with the Federal Election Commission. In November, the DNC posted its worst fundraising amount for the month in a decade.
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a former DNC chairman who hosted a party fundraiser at his home Dec. 14, is among the party stalwarts stepping in to try to reverse the course. “I have heard a lot of donors say they need to take a break,” said Mr. McAuliffe. “The party’s job is to convince them they can’t.”
Kathy Griffin Can’t Stop Blaming Trump For Her Own Career-Ending Move
Kathy Griffin continued to blame President Donald Trump for her current career status and said she can’t tour the United States “without getting shot.”
Shortly after pictures of the shoot surfaced, she issued an apology for taking things too far, only to retract that apology a few months later.
“They were thrilled to have someone come over and make fun of Trump,” Griffin explained. “I wish I could tour in the U.S. without getting shot–I know I can’t. I was in the middle of a 50-city tour when the tweet happened. It was canceled in 24 hours.”
[CtH: And how many conservatives have had to cancel because leftists demanded they not be allowed to appear?]
All eyes on Sen. Hatch as he weighs reelection bid
The political spotlight is shifting to longtime Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) as he considers whether to run for reelection in 2018. They have showered praise on the powerful Senate Finance Committee chairman for helping to shepherd the GOP’s tax overhaul through the upper chamber.
Much of the intrigue surrounding Hatch’s decision is centered on Mitt Romney, who reportedly plans to run for the seat if Hatch retires. If Hatch retires, Romney would become the immediate front-runner and would be expected to clear the field for the seat.
Trump and Romney have had a contentious relationship over the years. Romney waged a public campaign to stop Trump’s nomination in 2016. In one speech, he called Trump a “phony” and a “fraud.” More recently, Romney denounced failed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore hours after Trump endorsed him.
Asked earlier this month whether he was trying to prevent Romney from filling Hatch’s seat, Trump dodged the question. “He’s a good man. Mitt’s a good man,” he said.
New Jerusalem Train Station To Be Named After President Trump
Israel will name a new train station after President Trump announced the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv will move to Jerusalem
The nation’s transportation minister Israel Katz said Wednesday that the station, if approved and built, will be a thank you to Trump for his “courageous and historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Israel.”
The train station would sit in close proximity to the Western Wall, a holy site for worshipers of Judaism and a tourist attraction that brings in roughly 11 million visitors a year.
Vanity Fair Sparks Liberal Meltdown After Calling for Hillary Clinton to Take Up Knitting
The outlet published a video on its Twitter page, featuring a number of millennials offering recommendations to Clinton — who has spent much of 2017 relitigating the 2016 election — to stay away from politics and to do something else.
While the video was no doubt supposed to be a light, comedic ribbing — with Vanity Fair an unlikely backer for President Trump — and expressing in a light-hearted form the sentiment among many Democrats that Clinton may be a drag on the party in 2018 and 2020, Clinton-backers were not impressed.
As with most criticisms of Clinton, even those that come from women, the sexism card was quickly thrown down by those offended by the jokey video.
Actress Patricia Arquette requested that the outlet “STOP TELLING WOMEN WHAT THE F-CK THEY SHOULD DO OR CAN DO. “
ISIS CRUSHED Since Donald Trump Took Office – The Numbers
The massive gains come after years of “onerous” rules, when critics say the Obama administration “micromanaged” the war and shunned a more intensive air strategy that could have ended the conflict much sooner.
The rules of engagement under the Obama administration were onerous. I mean what are we doing having individual target determination being conducted in the White House, which in some cases adds weeks and weeks,” said retired Air Force Lt. Gen. David Deptula, the former head of U.S. Air Force intelligence. “The limitations that were put on actually resulted in greater civilian casualties.”
James Woods Trolls Dems, Sheila Jackson Lee After She Stole Other Passenger’s United Airlines Seat
As previously reported, despite United Airlines apologizing to the woman who purchased a first class ticket aboard one of their flights, only to be re-seated because Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee wanted to sit first class, the race-baiting Congresswoman believes no apology was owed.
Shortly after this apology and a $500 credit were issued by United, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee went on a Twitter tirade where she claimed that the entire incident is just about race, naturally.
James Woods tweeted out the picture of Sheila Jackson Lee sitting in the stolen first class seat, talking on her cell phone and said, “The Democrat party in a nutshell”.
The Democrat party stomps on common middle class people because they believe they are the royals of this country. The Democrats are always in their ivory towers looking down at the proletariat.
Democrats have contempt for Americans; they think they are superior to everyone else and if you dare speak up, you are a racist.
Sarsour: You Have No Right To Tell Us We Can’t Kill Jews
THIS IS A DEMOCRAT/FEMINIST ICON…SHE SHOULD BE DEPORTED
Islamic terrorists would like immunity from any accountability. They want to smash in the skulls of little girls, fire rockets at schools from kindergartens and then accuse Israel of violating human rights. But standards work both ways, despite Sarsour’s “punching up terrorism” nonsense. If you opt out of the laws of war, so do your enemies. Everyone is oppressed in their own minds anyway.
But the Democrats continue to stand by Linda Sarsour, despite a blatant defense of anti-Semitic Islamic terrorism and accusations of complicity in sexual harassment against a fellow Muslim woman. Because there’s nothing the left won’t excuse from Islamic Supremacists.
Florida man calls 911 to report restaurant’s clam size too small. When the cops showed up, he got a surprise
After Nelson Agosto, 51, called 911 TWICE to complain that the clams he was served were too small and he didn’t want to pay for them. He was arrested and charged with misuse of 911, which is a misdemeanor.
Oldest daughter had to work at the hospital yesterday, so her family is coming over this afternoon for pizza and to exchange gifts. Big Sis works at a restaurant and has to work at 5:00. She needs to put gas in her car and pay for insurance. Her parents make them work for what they want. RJ detassels corn and puts it in a savings account that he can’t withdraw from without mom’s signature. I’m so proud that our kids are raising our grandchildren with a sense of responsibility and respect. I think that’s the greatest gift they could ever give me. Maybe we did something right.
[CtH: IKWYM, Pete. One of my greatest joys this Christmas was watching two of my three girls parent. They’re such EXCELLENT MOMS!]
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee: Terror of the skies since 1995
The Democrat has developed a reputation for making life hell for any clerk, stewardess, or pilot unwilling or unable to make her three-and-a-half-hour flight anything less than glamorous. She takes advantage of federal travel perks to book multiple flights (only to cancel at the last minute and at no charge). She demands an upgrade to premier seats. She expects, in her words, “to be treated like a queen.”
Sometimes it gets ugly. For instance, when one peasant of a flight attendant failed to serve the food Jackson Lee requested, the congresswoman went wild. “Don’t you know who I am?” she reportedly shrieked. “I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Where is my seafood meal? I know it was ordered!”
[CtH: I can’t stand it when someone says, “Don’t you know who I am?” ::gagme::]
Rep. Jackson Lee suspects she was accused in United incident because she’s ‘an African American woman’
“Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target along with the African American flight attendant who was very, very nice,” she said.
“This saddens me, especially at this time of year given all of the things we have to work on to help people.”
A United Airlines representative told NBC News that Jackson Lee was not given preferential treatment because she is a member of Congress.
[CtH: More likely, she got preferential treatment because she’s a flaming nut job who would make United life hell otherwise. As for being mad about having someone swipe your reservation … puh-leeze! Like it would MATTER what color that person was?! I’m so SICK of Jackson Lee and the rest of her race-baiting cronies in the D party!]
Pelosi Hits Back at ‘Trump Administration’s Cruel Attacks on Our Brave Transgender Servicemembers’
IF THEY RUN OUT OF AMMUNITION THEY CAN ALWAYS HIT THE ENEMY WITH THEIR MAKEUP BAGS.
“The Trump Administration’s cruel attacks against our brave transgender servicemembers is a misguided decision fueled by prejudice, not the interests of national security,” Pelosi said. “The White House’s hateful agenda serves only to weaken our military and the nation it defends.”
[CtH: IOW, we should just IGNORE the hundreds of days and tens of thousands of dollars their SURGERIES make them useless to the military? Nancy, I still haven’t forgotten that you voted for waterboarding then bitched about how Bush was a filthy torturer.]
CBO: At Least 4.5M Anchor Babies in U.S.
THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA ARE THE ONLY COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD THAT ALLOW BABIES BORN THERE FULL CITIZENSHIP. THE SOLE REASON IS THAT DEMOCRATS NEED MORE PEOPLE UNDER THEIR CONTROL. THIS MUST STOP.
According to the CBO, there are 4.5 million anchor babies in the U.S. under the age of 18-years-old. This estimate does not include the potentially millions of anchor babies who are older than 18-years-old.
Should President Trump’s administration not enact major reforms to end illegal immigration — including constructing a border wall and ending birthright citizenship — the CBO estimates that at least another 600,000 anchor babies will be born to illegal alien parents in the next 10 years.
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) once opposed birthright citizenship, saying in 1993 that “no sane country” would reward illegal aliens with U.S. citizenship for their children.
This bill amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to consider a person born in the United States “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States for citizenship at birth purposes if the person is born in the United States of parents, one of whom is: (1) a U.S. citizen or national, (2) a lawful permanent resident alien whose residence is in the United States, or (3) an alien performing active service in the U.S. Armed Forces.
This Act shall not be construed to affect the citizenship or nationality status of any person born before the date of its enactment.
White House to remove historic Jackson Magnolia
The Jackson Magnolia that’s been in place behind the White House since the 1800s will be cut down, according to a report.
“The overall architecture and structure of the tree is greatly compromised and the tree is completely dependent on the artificial support,” documents obtained by the cable news outlet read. “Without the extensive cabling system, the tree would have fallen years ago.
The historic tree was planted after Andrew Jackson’s inauguration in 1829. Jackson’s wife, Rachel, died after he was elected in 1828, and according to CNN, the former president wanted to plant a sprout from his wife’s favorite magnolia tree from their farm in Tennessee.
Former first lady Michelle Obama took a seedling from the iconic tree in 2009 and brought it to the Department of Agriculture, where it could grow at the agency’s garden, and former President Barack Obama gifted a seedling from the tree to the people of Cuba in 2016.
Though the tree will be removed, another Jackson Magnolia will reportedly be planted there.
Rosie O’Donnell tells Paul Ryan he’s going ‘straight to hell’
“paul ryan – don’t talk about Jesus after what u just did to our nation – u will go straight to hell,” O’Donnell wrote Monday. “U screwed up fake altar boy,” O’Donnell added.
She finished her holiday attack with the hashtag: “#JUDASmuch” in a reference to the disciple who betrayed Jesus.
Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro reported an obscene tweet O’Donnell posted about him last week that said “Suck my d___ Ben,” according to Fox News.
Shapiro reported the “harassment” to Twitter to see if the social media giant would take action against a liberal. Twitter initially declined to delete the tweet, but then reversed course.
O’Donnell said she deleted her tweet to Shapiro after Twitter locked her account. She tweeted the notice she received from Twitter that she was in violation of company rules for “abusive behavior.”
Newsweek: ‘How Trump and the Nazis Stole Christmas To Promote White Nationalism’
President Donald Trump wants Americans to think he re-invented Christmas.
But critics counter that Trump is promoting a version of the holidays that excludes members of other religions, and that his crusade to bring back Christmas is part of a larger attempt by the president to define America as a country for white Christians alone.
[CtH: Wait, what? You mean “members of other religions” don’t celebrate the birth of Christ, while black, brown, red, and yellow Christians don’t celebrate Christmas? Who knew?!]
Wishing people “merry Christmas” instead of “happy holidays,” is thus in line with Trump’s decision to ban citizens of Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, critics say. It fits neatly with his refusal to condemn white supremacists when they march against diversity, and with his condemnation of athletes who protest police brutality against black men.
With this in mind, the fight to end the war on Christmas is exclusionary politics at its most flagrant.
Trump predicts new health care plan will happen after repealing Obamacare mandate
DEMOCRATS HAVE NEVER AND WILL NEVER COOPERATE WITH REPUBLICANS FOR THE SAKE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE…EVER
“Based on the fact that the very unfair and unpopular Individual Mandate has been terminated as part of our Tax Cut Bill, which essentially Repeals (over time) ObamaCare, the Democrats & Republicans will eventually come together and develop a great new HealthCare plan!” Mr. Trump tweeted.
Republicans tried unsuccessfully to repeal and replace Obamacare over the summer, but they could not come together around a plan.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews still has chills and thrills up his leg over Obama. He asked rhetorically on Jan. 18: “Is there a husband, a father, that we would wish more as a model for our sons, for our sons-in-law to have and raise our grandchildren? Is there anyone who carries himself better in word, in sentiment, in temperament, in optimism?”
Let’s close with the late-night comedians, who double down on the media’s arrogance. On CBS, Stephen Colbert told the president: “You’re the glutton with the button. You are a regular Gorge Washington. You are the presi-dunce, but you’re turning into a real prick-tator.” He added, “the only thing your mouth is good for” is acting as a holster for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s penis.
That’s how classy 2017 was, because there’s one thing at which liberals feel they excel: unifying the country with civil discourse.
[CtH: Hmmm … husband? Before the White House, Barack did not live with his wife and daughters. In the White House, Michelle had her mother in residence, methinks to act as a buffer in what gives every appearance of being a fairly terrible marriage. Father? Maybe. Personally, I wouldn’t want a malignant narcissist as a father, but that’s just me. Carries himself in word, etc? Repeat my last comment.]
Magazine Mocks Hillary With New Years Resolutions Suggestions for 2018
Some of the lefty media are starting to show signs they’ve had it up to here with the Hillary circus and want her to just disappear as much as we do. One such media publication is Vanity Fair, who nauseatingly fawned over her for 8 years and goo-gooed at her anticipated coronation. But as with all thing faux, people tend to tire of or see through them. Mockingly, Vanity Fair suggest Hillary find other things to do in 2018 instead of bothering people by running for office again, like just get a hobby and go away.
Guess what’s missing from CNN’s list of theories for Hillary Clinton’s sinking favorability
CNN’s Chris Cillizza published a piece today offering four possible explanations for the decline in Hillary Clinton’s popularity. In case you missed this story, Allahpundit noted yesterday that Hillary is at her lowest favorability rating ever according to Gallup, just 36 percent.
The Obama Years: A Legacy Of Scandal And Deception
Joe Biden’s bizarre disconnect regarding his scandal-ridden former boss.
On December 13, former vice president, Joe Biden, appeared on CBS with the hosts of “This Morning” where he peddled his new book and showered his former boss with praise. During the course of the interview, he was asked about his relationship with Obama and responded with the following;
“I’ve served with eight presidents and I’ve gotten to know four of them very well. I’ve never met any president that has more character, more integrity, and more backbone than this guy does.” Then he went completely off the rails when he absurdly added; “And eight years, not a hint — not a hint — of a scandal.”
What was perhaps even more outrageous than the statement itself was the fact that none of This Morning’s hosts challenged the veracity of that statement and allowed it to pass without a scintilla of scrutiny, exposing yet again an extreme bias existing within elements of the establishment media.
NFL Cancels Final ‘Sunday Night Football’ Game Of Season
The NFL announced Tuesday that the final “Sunday Night Football” game of the season has been canceled, according to CNN. The league had yet to announce who would play during the primetime game next Sunday, but with the chance that none of the matchups would have playoff implications for one or both of the teams, they opted not to schedule the game.
The other problem the league faced was broadcasting a game on New Year’s Eve, which would invite lower number of viewers traditionally on that night. Instead, fans can settle in for seven games at kick-off at 1 p.m. eastern Sunday and a total of 9 games starting at 4:25 p.m. eastern time.
In a season plagued with lower ratings due to the national anthem protests, the league’s decision was not surprising
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).
MO Democrat McCaskill Comes UNGLUED at Hearing – Demands Taxpayers Be Forced to Pay $2,800 Obamacare Tax
“AIR CLAIRE” HAS ENJOYED A 6 YEAR FREE RIDE THANKS TO TODD AKIN IN 2012. HER TIME MAY BE RUNNING SHORT.
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.

TED LIEU IS A FETID PILE OF RANCID HOG INTESTINES
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.
From MRC: “If you ever want to do something dangerous and risky, you could try following the logic of Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas.
“Wednesday on the House floor she started talking about taxes, which turned into criticizing President Trump for “politicizing” yesterday’s terror attack in New York, then led to references to the Civil War and the NFL and concluded with her taking a knee for “justice.”
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas)has a well-documented history ofrude and abusive behaviortoward her staff and the public, and oflying and making absurdly ignorant remarks, often in prepared statements. Below is a short list ofexamples.
In 2014, Jackson Lee declared the U.S. Constitution to be 400 years old.
In 2013, Jackson Lee called herself a “freed slave.”
In 2011, at a hearing on the radicalization of Islam in America, Jackson Lee sounded off at length and beyond the time allotted to her about how horrible it was that they were there, because apparently talking about the radicalization of Islam is an insult to all Muslims. Or something.
In 2010, Jackson Lee said Tea Party members used to belong to the KKK.
In 2010,Jackson Lee she said, “Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working.” At that time, Jackson Lee was a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
In 2009, Jackson Lee spoke at pedophile Michael Jackson’s memorial service, calling him an “icon” and “someone who will be honored forever and forever and forever and forever.”
In 1997, Jackson Lee asked if the Mars Pathfinder had succeeded in taking a picture of the flag planted on Mars by Neil Armstrong in 1969. At that time, Jackson Lee was a member of the House Committee on Science.
According to Jackson Lee’s Wikipedia bio,she was graduated from both Yale University and the University of Virginia Law School.Methinks she should be considered for the role of poster person for the effort tostop Affirmative Actionin our universities.
Shortly after I started on Facebook I became friends with a brilliant writer who is a columnist for a major political blog. I don’t want to mention the name; it could cause irreparable harm to his reputation having friends like me. Anyway, we were discussing the wretched, slimy reptile known as the governor of Virginia. As we were waxing poetic about what a steaming pile of toad excrement he was, Kathleen Willey — yes,THAT Kathleen Willey — joined the conversation. We echanged a few thoughts and when I lamented how frustrating it was that these two felons have never and WILL never pay a price for their crimes, she told me not to be too sure. Maybe there’s something she knows that we don’t.
It was clear the assault she suffered at the hands of former president Ben T. Penis may never fully heal. At least there is some solace that she, Paula Jones, Juanita Broadrick, and all the other victims of this soulless sociopath got to see Hillary Rotten Clinton get humiliated last November. As they say, revenge is a dish best served cold.

IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THIS, IT’S WORTH WATCHING. THE MEDIA ARE PRESSING EVERYBODY TO TRY TO GET A NEGATIVE OPINION OF THE PRESIDENT THAT THEY CAN FEED OFF OF.
Did CNN wander through the shelter and corner her when she was clearly still reeling from what she went through or were they stationed somewhere inside the shelter where people who wanted to talk could approach? There’s a fine line, as Harry Enten said, between humanizing the disaster and exploiting it. It’s not obvious from this snippet which side of the line CNN was on.
Coalition of Leftists Begin 10-day “March To Confront White Supremacy”
Among their demands is Trump’s removal from office
Activists are set to start a 10-day march from Charlottesville, Va., to Washington, D.C., on Monday to confront white supremacy and demand President Trump’s removal from office.
“The March to Confront White Supremacy,” is set to start in Charlottesville Monday, Aug. 28 and end in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, Sept. 6. Organizers say the march will be followed by an occupation of Washington with daily nonviolent demonstrations. http://legalinsurrection.com/2017/08/coalition-of-leftists-begin-10-day-march-to-confront-white-supremacy/
It Only Took A Day For The March To DC To Lose Nearly All Of The Marchers
The March to DC from Charlottesville, Va., started with nearly 200 marchers Monday, but by Tuesday morning there were only 35 marchers.
The overnight rains were enough to keep all but “about 35” from marching Monday morning, the day after the pep talk when police escorted the group from Emancipation Park downtown Sunday

THEY BLAME IT ON THE HURRICANE, ON THE ECONOMY. THERE’S AN OBVIOUS ANSWER THEY WON’T ADMIT: THEY CALL TRUMP HITLER, CALL US NAZIS, FASCISTS, RACISTS, BIGOTS, WE’RE STUPID, WE’RE EVIL, BLAH BLAH BLAH. THEN THEY EXPECT US TO SHELL OUT $30 TO GO TO ONE OF THEIR STUPID MOVIES AND SPEND ANOTHER $20 ON POPCORN AND A SODA. FAT CHANCE. http://www.hapblog.com/2017/08/box-office-bust-revenue-down-70.html
#FakeNews Media Refuses to Show MASSIVE CROWD OF SCREAMING SUPPORTERS Greeting Trumps in Texas
THIS VIDEO IS AMAZING. THE LIBERAL MEDIA REFUSED TO SHOW YOU THIS TODAY:
GOP Rep’s Proposal Would Defund Mueller Probe After 6 Months
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) has proposed an amendment to the upcoming federal spending bill that would “severely curtail” Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of President Trump after six months.
The congressman’s amendment stipulates that no funds from the spending package “may be used to fund activities pursuant to [the special counsel probe] later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act.”
THIS COULD BE DONE UNLESS RYAN TELLS HIS PACK OF RINOS THEY NEED TO KEEP THE INVESTIGATION GOING
The proper thing to do would be to soundly condemn the way Trump has gotten down and dirty with his constant tormentors. A consensus of GOP senators ( who all skipped out early yesterday for their July 4th break) and every last leftist loon claim shock, embarrassment, and disgust at his rude behavior toward a poor defenseless female who has called him every unholy name in the book. Bush was accosted nonstop for 8 long years and never hit back. He was a grand target for liberal abuse. They never tired of tormenting him. They will find out in due time Donald trump is no George W. Bush. That’s precisely why we elected him.He won’t tolerate a bunch of sh*t from worthless slugs who contribute nothing of value to America. In a way he reminds me of the incomparable John Belushi from Animal House.
(Note: that scene was shot in one take and was completely unrehearsed.)
Mad genius of Trump drives schoolmarms of political press crazy
The only thing missing from this electronic presidential address was the Marine Band playing “Hail to the Chief.”
CNN’s TV coverage was no less intense. Beginning with the 9 a.m. hour, the network covered the tweets in depth every hour as anchors, panelists and guests expressed their outrage that the tweets.
CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta appeared to demand an apology for the tweets at the end of White House Sanders’s press briefing Thursday afternoon. “No apology from the president, Sarah?” Acosta asked as Sanders walked away from the podium. http://dailycaller.com/2017/06/29/cnn-cranks-up-the-outrage-during-day-long-marathon-on-two-trump-tweets/
Sarah Huckabee Sanders Defends POTUS’s Tweets: Trump ‘Fights Fire With Fire’
MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski compared President Donald Trump’s administration to North Korea last Friday morning.

Mark Levin Slams ‘Bad Lounge Act’ Morning Joe, Compares Scarborough to Banjo Player in Deliverance
“Don’t I remember Joe Scarborough in the audience when President Trump was giving his State of the Union address jumping up like a clapping seal over and over and over again?” Levin began. “The guy’s been to Mar-a-Lago, he’s been to the White House, he’s been to Trump’s State of the Union… and now all of a sudden he’s part of a bad lounge act over there at the conga line of left-wing freaks they call MSNBC.”
Perhaps there is no better window on the awfulness of the self-appointed New York-to-DC ruling class than MSNBC’s Morning Joe. The show revolves around a collection of chattering-class bores who devote the start of their day to seconding each other’s shallow and smug criticisms of Trump. The women make faces; the men roll their eyes.
Co-host Mika Brzezinski is a feminist who lectures other women on the need to show firmness in a man’s world. Yet she spends most of the show acting like a prim, entitled Victorian-era dingbat on a fainting couch. She grips her chair for balance while she makes faux-terrified faces, then turns to “Joe” for guidance on how to address this or that Trump “outrage.” “Joe” is the vainglorious former Congressman Joe Scarborough. The two are engaged, but one suspects the relationship won’t last Trump’s two terms.
Scarborough resembles a beady-eyed frat boy whom one can more easily imagine bellowing over a keg than cracking open a serious book. Yet he casts himself as Trump’s moral and intellectual better. Trump, you see, lacks Joe’s “substance.” https://spectator.org/trump-and-morning-joke/
Dem Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Demands Trump Resign After Tweets Attacking ‘Morning Joe’…
WHY DOES SHE ALWAYS WEAR A CABBAGE ON HER JACKET?
Jackson Lee posted a video to her Twitter account slamming Trump for the tweets, particularly for the comment targeting Brzezinski.
“There’s a sense of hurt feelings,” she said. “Mr. President, bleeding from the face? You’re again attacking women, professional women? You’re calling someone a psycho with all of the individuals fighting for their lives, suffering from mental health needs? You’re attacking a woman, a professional woman, about her IQ?” http://freebeacon.com/politics/jackson-lee-trump-resign-tweets-attacking-morning-joe/
Don Lemon: Trump ‘Gross and Disgusting’ for Tweets Attacking ‘Morning Joe’
The media whores are going wild. They haven’t been this happy since they carried an unknown Muslim street hustler to the presidency. The DOJ, as always, folded under relentless pressure to name a special prosecutor to investigate whether the Russians called 66 million Americans and urged them to vote for Donald trump. There aren’t even any specific charges stated. That doesn’t matter. All they want is an investigation to avoid having to answer why they do nothing but attack the president from every quarter. Nothing positive, no efforts to improve the lot of the everyday working class who make this country go.
After SCOTUS intervened in 2000 to keep the Dems and the Florida Supremes from blatantly trying to steal the presidency, they raged at George W. Bush for the entire eight years of his presidency. I didn’t think they could be any more vicious. I was wrong. When Donald Trump shattered their fantasy of a socialist utopia under the first (woman) president they flew into a mindless, white-hot fury that seems to intensify every day.
Dems hail Mueller pick for Russia probe: a ‘master stroke’
In the Senate, Democrats had threatened to block Comey’s replacement until a special counsel was named.
The decision fell to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who had stirred a political storm of his own last week when he provided Trump — at the president’s request — a justification for Comey’s firing.
Democrats howled, questioning Rosenstein’s integrity and dedication to the law. But on Wednesday, after the Mueller announcement, the Democrats were singing a different hymn. http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/333977-dems-hail-master-stroke-mueller-pick-for-russia-probe
It’s a Coup!
They have termed this coup “The Resistance” and with the aid of our activist judicial system, educational institutions, Hollywood, the press, and social media; they are leading a full blown war against President Trump on various fronts. With the aid of the propaganda media establishment, akin to the old Soviet Union’s Pravda, they proudly obstruct President Trump’s every move. Their aim is impeachment, but to impeach they need to have grounds; thus, they have concocted a conspiracy theory of Russian collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians without a shred of evidence to support that theory. http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/05/its_a_coup.html#ixzz4hRjEmy1L
Nets Flock to Special Prosecutor News, Knock Trump and Mock GOPOne thing all of the networks agreed on was how brilliant Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s pick of Mueller was. They championed him as a man of integrity that could not be swayed by Washington’s political pressures. “David, just a reminder about Mueller, after serving ten years as FBI director he was asked by President Obama to re-up for an additional two years. He was reconfirmed 100 to nothing,” noted ABC’s Pierre Thomas.
Mueller’s record is outstanding, so it will be interesting to see if and how the liberal media’s attitude about him changes if he doesn’t prosecute the people they want. http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2017/05/17/nets-flock-special-prosecutor-news-knock-trump-and-mock-gop
DNC Not Satisfied With Mueller, Demands Independent Commission on Trump and RussiaAlthough many public Democrats have backed him, the Democratic National Committee made clear Wednesday that it considers the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election to be inadequate.
An email sent out by DNC chair Tom Perez said that Mueller’s appointment “underscored the seriousness of the investigation.” It insisted that, “Donald Trump didn’t want this. The White House didn’t want this. Republicans didn’t want this,” and called on readers to add their names to a petition calling to “demand an independent investigation into Trump and Russia.” http://freebeacon.com/politics/dnc-not-satisfied-demands-independent-commission/
What is the 25th Amendment, and could it be used to remove Trump?
Briefly, the 25th Amendment is intended to clarify what happens in the event of the president or vice president’s death, resignation or removal from office. It also outlines how an Oval Office vacancy should be filled if the president becomes disabled and cannot fulfill his or her duties.
There are four separate sections to the amendment. Section 4, which concerns presidential disability, has gotten the most attention from Trump critics.
According to Section 4, if the vice president and a majority of his cabinet say that the president is disabled and cannot “discharge the powers and duties of his office,” then the vice president becomes president. https://www.yahoo.com/news/25th-amendment-used-remove-trump-215814401.html
House Democrat Introduces Trump Special Counsel Act
I’LL BET THE CABBAGE ON JACKASS LEE’S SHOULDER IS SMARTER THAN SHE IS.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D., Texas) introduced the Trump Special Counsel Act on Wednesday in response to President Trump firing former FBI Director James Comey, according to the Washington Examiner.
“The onslaught of scandals surrounding the Trump presidency have led our democracy to a crossing point,” Jackson Lee wrote in a statement on Facebook. “Will we uphold the rule of law or allow for the continued obstruction of justice by a chief executive who brazenly abuses his power?” http://freebeacon.com/politics/house-democrat-introduces-trump-special-counsel-act/
British bookies say gamblers are betting Trump won’t finish his term in office
The Betfair bookmaking website reports that gamblers have wagered more than $6,400 that Trump will leave office before January 2021
Oddsmakers are now predicting a 55 per cent chance that the president will depart the White House early
A Ladbrokes spokeswoman said ‘barely a day goes by without a Trump scandal, but money talks, and punters are becoming increasingly convinced’
It is a certainty that the democrats will never be satisfied because they have no inner core beliefs. Even in 2008 when they controlled everything they were never happy.
Another certainty is that the Republican party is going to let Trump to his own devices. Not one of them will show any support because their main interest is staying out of the spotlight and keeping their positions on the gravy train.
HOW I WISH THAT WERE TRUE. PROBLEM IS WE’RE TOO CIVILIZED.

Pro-Hillary NY Daily News Writer Tells Her, “Shut The F**k Up And Go Away”
Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be writing a book — she should be drafting a long apology to America
On Tuesday at the Women for Women conference, she reminded us again what a flawed candidate she was last year — and what a flawed person she has always been.
In her talk before a friendly audience, Clinton said she’s writing a memoir — and said it’s “painful” to revisit how Donald Trump beat her like a ragdoll in an election that was a lock.
Painful? We’re the ones in pain, Hillary. You’re making millions to process it. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/hillary-clinton-book-apology-article-1.3130675
Cher: No Money to Treat My Asthma after House Obamacare Repeal
In an earlier tweet, the singer called GOP representatives in the House “inhumane” and predicted millions of people would die as a result of the legislation, which has not yet cleared the Senate or been signed by the president.

BREAKING! BREAKING! MORNING JOKE AND MUCKUP ARE HOOKING UP!
In Move That Shocks Nobody, Mika Brzezinski And Joe Scarborough Are Getting Married…
When the show debuted, both co-hosts were married: Scarborough to his second wife, whom he divorced in 2013, and Brzezinski to her former husband of 23 years. But long before they were an item, they made a lot of sense. Their chemistry—the way they bickered, and eye-rolled, and flirted in the I-can’t-stand-you-but-I-love-you way that elementary schoolers do—fueled speculation about their relationship off camera for years, a kind of reality show within a talk show. http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/05/exclusive-joe-and-mika-engaged

Trump’s Army sec. pick — a combat hero and devout Christian — under assault from LGBTQ activists His military resume to become the next Army secretary appears impeccable, but his conservative Christian beliefs have rallied the gay rights movement and its Democratic supporters to defeat the soldier-businessman-politician.
This week, a group of 11 House Republicans entered the battle on the side of combat veteran Mark E. Green, sending an endorsement letter to Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain, Arizona Republican.
“Mark’s commitment to the men and women of the U.S. Army is emboldened by his faithful service as a solider,” said the letter spearheaded by Rep. Duncan Hunter of California and signed by representatives from his home state of Tennessee.
Mr. McCain said his week he has reservations about Mr. Green as Army secretary.

Not From The Onion: Florida University To Award Trayvon Martin A Posthumous Honorary Degree
Rachel Jeantel: ‘That’s retarded, sir’
ALL HAIL SAINT SKITTLES
HE WAS SUCH A CUTE LI’L TARBABY WHEN HE WAS YOUNG
The private university announced Wednesday that Martin’s parents, Sabrina Fulton and Tracy Martin, will accept a bachelor of science degree in aeronautical science with a concentration in flight education on behalf of their son.
The degree is in “honor of the steps he took during his young life toward becoming a pilot,” the school said in a Facebook post. Florida Memorial’s Department of Aviation and Safety has a designated Cessna pilot training center, and the school also houses the Trayvon Martin Foundation. It is based in Miami Gardens, where Trayvon Martin lived with his father. http://www.tampabay.com/news/education/florida-university-to-award-trayvon-martin-a-posthumous-honorary-degree/2322757
