“President Donald Trump has become the voice of bipartisanship and cooperation in Washington, while Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have taken a decidedly negative tone on major issues — chiefly immigration.” President Trump “hit the right notes on the economy and used invited guests to effectively to tell the story that Republicans want to tell — this presidency is keeping promises, revving up the economy, and keeping us safe.”
NBC News: “Democrats’ response to Trump proves they aren’t interested in improving American lives”
“The Democrats last night could hardly bring themselves to acknowledge the benefits that Trump’s administration has provided American families. … The American people are finally being fully represented and the American Dream is alive and well again. We have made major strides in America’s comeback, even as the Democrats are simply warming their own seats.”
The Democrats treated George W. Bush shabbily for eight years because they never got over his refusing to let Al Gore steal the 2000 election. Their souls are empty, so they lash out at anything that doesn’t comport with whatever beliefs they have. But there has never been the volume of visceral rage against a single human being that they display against Donald Trump. Their behavior last night was nothing short of reprehensible. They refused to stand for any reason, including for our troops.
FIRST THE GOOD: President Trump Delivers First State of Union Address Trump Channels Reagan In Call To Make America Great Again
“Freedom stands tall over one more monument: this one. This Capitol, this living monument to the American people. A people whose heroes live not only in the past, but all around us — defending hope, pride, and the American way.”
The president ended his speech with calls for bipartisanship saying, “I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve.”
Poll: 75% Approve of Trump’s State of the Union Address
An “instant” poll of viewers who watched President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday night found that 75% approved of the speech, while only 25% disapproved — a 50-point margin in the president’s favor.
The Shabby, Sophomoric Behavior of Democrats at the SOTU
It is difficult to imagine a more galling demonstration of incivility than the Democrats in the room for Trump’s SOTU speech. They scowled, frowned, and sat on their hands throughout the speech. They could hardly be bothered to acknowledge the heroes in the audience when they were introduced. While the Dems brought illegal immigrants, Trump invited actual paragons of American character and the families of victims of illegal immigrant crimes, as well as a victim of North Korea. It was embarrassing, like watching the anti-Semites in the UN stomp out of the room when Benjamin Netanyahu speaks. How is it any different? Our Democrats behave exactly like the most racist, intolerant people on the planet, and in their own Capitol.
Black Caucus Sits on Butts, Refuses to Applaud Record Low Black Unemployment Rates at SOTU
THESE GANGSTERS COULDN’T CARE LESS ABOUT BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT. KEEP ‘EM POOR, IGNORANT, AND DOING AS YOU COMMAND THEM WITH BLIND LOYALTY.
Why Didn’t Democrats Stand – Or Even Clap – For This SOTU Line?
It’s typical for lawmakers to resist clapping during the president’s annual State of the Union address when he mentions policies they oppose. But, when the president touches on issues that are clearly bipartisan, both sides of the aisle usually acknowledge it with at least a golf clap. For instance, supporting our military, investing in infrastructure, combating the opioid crisis, and a budding economy can typically be considered bipartisan issues.
CNN Cuomo on SOTU: “I’ve Never Seen Nancy Pelosi’s Face Look Like That”
When even Chris Cuomo mocks your moue . . .
On CNN this morning, commenting on Nancy Pelosi’s sour expression during President Trump’s State of the Union speech, Cuomo said:
“I’ve never seen Nancy Pelosi’s face look like that.”
Rep. Luis Gutierrez walks out of Trump’s State of the Union as progressives write off bipartisanship permanently
Historically, progressives have championed a permanent solution for the so-called “Dreamers,” immigrants brought to this country illegally as children. But they are already balking at any amnesty deal.
Generally, progressives are willing to negotiate at least at the margins of a Republican agenda. But they see anything less than a complete and total scorched-earth strategy as unacceptable.
Shortly after exiting the chamber, Gutierrez summarized his position. “I was hoping to get through my life without having to witness an outwardly, explicitly racist American President,” he wrote in a statement. “My luck ran out.”
With that, Gutierrez managed to do something normally quite impossible. By writing off compromise completely, barely a week after the government shutdown, the progressive has made Trump look like the good-faith, honest adult in the room
JOE KENNEDY SLOBBERS Down His Face in Democratic SOTU Response
HE SHOULD HAVE USED HIS LATE UNCLES’ DROOL CUP
Rep. Joe Kennedy delivered the Democratic response to President Trump’s State of the Union Address to a mostly white audience tonight in Massachusetts. The poor guy got a little too excited and started slobbering down his face. Somebody needed to bring him a napkin.
Kennedy Delivers Dark Rebuttal To Donald Trump’s State Of The Union
Within a minute, Kennedy brought up the supposed Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election; a Republican tax bill that solely helps wealthy, corporate America; a Department of Justice under the leadership of Attorney General Jeff Sessions that is supposedly unfair; the Charlottesville riots; and the plight of the transgender community.
Kennedy also promised to tear down the wall that President Donald Trump promises to build along the southern border of the U.S. and Mexico.
“You sat high atop your mom’s shoulders and held a sign that read: ‘Build a wall and my generation will tear it down,’” Kennedy said.
The #2 man at the FBI, Andrew McCabe was pushed out/resigned/terminated yesterday. The fact is he was placed on ‘permanent leave of absence’ until March when he can retire with full benefits… to the tune of $1.8 million. He will likely then get a six-figure job as a lobbyist on J Street where old politicians go to continue raking in big money. Congress voted to release the FISA memo, which will once again demonstrate how dirty and morally bankrupt the Democrats are and how deeply the system has been corrupted. Despite all the sh*tstorm, I still maintain nobody of any import is going to jail.
CtH < Remembering Election Day 2016 and praying Pete gets to celebrate being splendidly wrong again. 🙂
Andrew McCabe’s Pension Is Worth About $1.8 Million
Top FBI official retires after scrutiny for handling of Clinton email investigation
By multiplying McCabe’s highest average salary of $157,800 by 1.7 percent, for each of his first 20 years of service, he receives an annual $53,652 pension. He receives an additional 1 percent for one year of service, having served since 1996. This gives McCabe an additional $1,578, giving him an annual pension of $55,230.
It appears McCabe is the first victim of the FISA MEMO.
The swamp immediately struck back. The new Acting Deputy Director of the FBI replacing Andrew McCabe, David Bowdich worked under Comey. In fact, he may be a witness in the ‘Trump-Russia’ investigation because Comey had a conversation with him about Trump asking the former FBI Director to supposedly ‘back off its probe into General Flynn’.
Even worse, Bowdich was involved in the Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting conversations with Comey as they scrambled to hide the scandalous meeting from the public.
Pelosi: Immigration framework is a ‘campaign to make America white again’
IT’S SO SAD THAT RACE BAITING IS ALL THEY HAVE
“Let me just say what I said last night: that plan is a campaign to make America white again,” Pelosi said, claiming that the proposal will cut legal immigration by 50 percent…
In her remarks, Pelosi thanked mayors across the country for their “courage” in overseeing sanctuary cities, jurisdictions that do not fully cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
Joe Manchin Slams Nancy Pelosi for ‘Make America White Again’
MANCHIN IS THE MOST ENDANGERED DEMOCRAT IN THE SENATE. HE’S TRYING DESPERATELY TO SOUND LIKE A MODERATE TO SAVE HIS JOB. IT’S ALL AN ACT.
“You know what? We don’t need that type of rhetoric on either side,” Manchin told CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union. Asked whether that meant he “condemned” Pelosi’s remark, Manchin replied that his criticism would apply to both sides: “I’m condemning all this crazy rhetoric that goes on. Just because someone’s a Republican — it’s not my enemy. And we have to work together.”
Joy Reid Reprimands Another Republican: “We Say ‘Democratic’ Party Here”
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING DEMOCRATIC ABOUT THE DEMOCRAT PARTY.
Reid was at it again on her MSNBC show this morning. This time, the target of her ire was Jason Johnson, former chief strategist to Sen. Ted Cruz. When Johnson committed the unforgivable sin of twice referring to the “Democrat” party, Reid interrupted:
“You’re new to our show, but we say ‘Democratic’ party here.”
HEY JOY…SCREW YOU!
[CtH: Joy, honey, I go out of my way to use “Democrat Party.” I know it’s wrong and everybody who reads me regularly knows I’m a grammar nazi, so yes, it is meant to be a subtle insult. But given that you and your ilk regularly disrespect me and my “pro-life” peeps by using “pro-abortion”, I can’t say as I give a flippin’ finger what you think about it.]
I DIDN’T BOTHER TO POST ANYTHING ABOUT THE GRAMMYS FOR A REASON; I JUST DON’T CARE.
BRUNO MARS WON 7 AWARDS AND THE INSUFFERABLE JAY-Z, OBAMA’S HOMEBOY, WAS NOMINATED FOR 7 AWARDS AND DIDN’T WIN A DAMN THING. THAT DIDN’T STOP HIS JACKASSERY.
JAY-Z slams Trump’s ‘s—hole’ comments, calls him a ‘superbug’
Trump must not have watched the interview because, as Jones noted on Twitter, he actually broached that very topic. “[Trump] is somebody who’s now saying, ‘Look, I’m dropping black unemployment. Black people are doing well under my administration.’”
Jones said. “Does he have a point? … Maybe he’s going to say terrible things but put money in our pocket; does that make him a good leader?”
“No,” JAY-Z replied. “It’s not about money at the end of the day. Money doesn’t equate to happiness, it doesn’t. That’s missing the whole point. You treat people like human beings.”
‘MONEY DOESN’T EQUATE TO HAPPINESS’…SAYS THE GUY WITH $800 MILLION

DIAMOND AND SILK ALWAYS HAVE AN OPINION
The Two Republicans Who Voted Against The 20-Week Abortion Ban
I GET SO TIRED OF THESE TWO.
The Senate voted 51-46 in favor of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which was short of the 60 votes required to proceed to a final vote under current Senate rules.
Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine both voted against the bill, which would have prohibited abortions on unborn babies after 20 weeks, the age at which they can feel pain, with exceptions in cases rape, incest or to save the life of the mother.
[CtH: These two always vote pro-abortion, but there are 2 or 3 Democrats who are strong on our side. If they change the Senate’s rules, this could pass. Planned Parenthood will instantly challenge it in the courts, so it won’t save many lives right away, but it will move the issue back to the SCOTUS docket eventually. A large majority of Americans favor it and Ginsburg is older than dirt, so we can pray with realistic hope.]
Hillary Clinton reads from ‘Fire and Fury’ at Grammys
CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE SHUT HER UP?
“He had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s — nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade,” the former Democratic presidential candidate read from the book, before Grammy host James Corden told her she had the award “in the bag.”
Along with Clinton, Corden’s bit of searching for the best narrator of Wolff’s book included Snoop Dogg, Cardi B, DJ Khaled and other stars.
Nikki Haley derided the producers of Sunday night’s Grammy Awards for a segment that features Hillary Clinton reading ‘Fire and Fury’. In the segment, Clinton had a giant grin as she read a passage about President Trump’s ‘longtime fear of being poisoned’
Hillary Clinton Sends Message Of Thanks To ‘Activist Bitches Supporting Bitches’
SHE ONLY SUPPORTS THE BITCHES HER HUBBY DIDN’T ASSAULT
[CtH: And the 12-year-old rape victims who weren’t stepping stones to be squashed to advance her career.]
12-Year-Old Being Honored By Trumps At SOTU For Placing U.S. Flags And Flowers At The Graves Of Veterans Since 2015A 12-year-old Redding boy will be a guest Tuesday at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. Preston Sharp, who has won acclaim for placing U.S. flags and flowers at the graves of North State veterans since 2015, will be one of a number of presidential guests at Trump’s speech, the White House announced Monday.
He is attending the address at the invitation of Donald and Melania Trump and will sit in the House of Representatives gallery with the first lady during the speech, the White House said.
Former Democrat Congresswoman Corrine Brown Turns Herself In To Prison, Still Draws Her Congressional Pension
SHE WAS SENTENCED TO FIVE YEARS…SHE’LL BE OUT IN TWO OR THREE AND WILL IMMEDIATELY GET RE-ELECTED.
The bus paused at the prison complex’s entrance and waited for Bishop Kelvin Cobaris to cross the highway and get on board. Cobaris had parked across the street from the prison, awaiting Brown’s arrival. Cobaris, who is the president of the African American Council of Christian Clergy, described himself as Brown’s spiritual advisor.
It’s unlikely that we will be able to see Corrine Brown’s mug shot. Unlike county and state corrections facilities, federal prisons rarely release mug shots. Brown will continue to collect her Congressional pension while she’s in prison until the appeals process has been exhausted.
President Trump will give his first State of the Union speech tonight. It should be far more interesting than Barky’s last one, even just for the agita the progtards will be suffering.
I never watched Obama spew his platitudes and outright lies, mostly because his voice was offensive to me. I may watch part of the speech tonight, but chances are I’ll just recap tomorrow.
Basically it’s a chance for him to tout his successful leadership in growing the economy, stemming the flood of illegal, and promoting America to the world instead of apologizing for her greatness.
The Democrats plan to have at least six — count ’em, six — rebuttals after his speech. The official response will be by some Kennedy (yes,one of THOSE). The most interesting will be by Gasoline Maxine, whose rebuttal will be repeating “Impeach 45! Impeach 45!” over and over until she has a seizure and passes out.
State of the Union To Emphasize Economy, Military Strength
It will focus on five broad topics: the economy, a $1-trillion-plus plan to rebuild infrastructure, Mr. Trump’s new immigration proposal that includes a pathway to citizenship 1.8 million young illegal immigrants, trade policy and a plan to rebuild the military.
“To Congress, the tone will be one of bipartisanship and very forward-looking,” a senior administration official said. “The economic upswing is helping everybody — all groups are benefiting.”
Unhinged: Michael Moore assails Trump, ‘unfit,’ ‘narcissist, ‘sociopath,’ ‘threat to humanity’
One of the chief organizers of Monday’s counter-State of the Union in New York City is charging that President Trump needs to be overthrown before he ends the world. Really.
Moore, with Mark Ruffalo, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and Cynthia Nixon are headlining the Hollywood-filled New York event and MoveOn.org is fundraising off it. Trump gives his address to Congress on Tuesday.
[CtH: Maybe these folks could actually LISTEN to the speech? Just a suggestion.]
Maxine Waters set to respond to Trump after State of the Union
Waters, one of Trump’s most vocal critics, will appear on “Angela Rye’s State of the Union” on BET, according to BuzzFeed News. Waters, who is one of several Democratic lawmakers who have said they will not attend Trump’s speech on Tuesday, has consistently criticized Trump throughout his presidency, repeatedly calling for his impeachment.
Anti-Trump Moonbat Celebs Plan ‘People’s State Of The Union’, Price Of Admission Is $47.00
Monday’s event also will serve as a platform for the launch of “We Stand United,” the lead organizing group of the “People’s State of the Union.”
The group’s campaign director, Julia Walsh, said, “We’re all going to work together across all different movements to make sure that we win back Congress in 2018 and hold this president in check.”
“It’s the mother of all movements,” Ruffalo said.
[CtH: No, Mark. The “mother of all movements” in this country was the American Revolution, followed closely by the Republican Party’s founding to end slavery in the U.S. The “mother of all movements” in all of world history was the rise of Christianity.]
Joseph Kennedy III to give Democratic response to Trump’s State of the Union address
WILL THEY EVER RUN OUT OF KENNEDYS?
[CtH: Not the way Bobby and Ethel reproduced, no.]
“From healthcare to economic justice to civil rights, the Democratic agenda stands in powerful contrast to President Trump’s broken promises to American families,” Kennedy, 37, grandson of the late Senator Robert F. Kennedy and three-term congressman, told the paper.
Virginia Democrat Elizabeth Guzman of the Virginia House of Delegates will give the Spanish-language response, the paper reported.
[CtH: Name ONE promise Candidate Trump made that President Trump has broken. Just one. I’m waiting.]
Joe Kennedy to bring transgender soldier to Trump’s State of the Union
SURE, WHY NOT?
Staff Sgt. Patricia King will be the lawmaker’s guest to Trump’s address, according to The Boston Globe. King told the Globe that she realized she was a transgender woman while serving in the military, and soon came out to her family.
Trump announced last year that he was banning transgender people from serving in the U.S. military. However, courts have halted the ban and transgender people were allowed to enlist starting Jan. 1.
Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg to Skip Trump’s State of the Union, Says She is Not Retiring
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will not be in attendance at President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening. Ginsburg also skipped out on Trump’s address to Congress last year after attending each of former President Barack Obama’s eight addresses before Congress.
Democrats And Leftists Will Be Giving At Least Six Separate Responses To Trump’s State Of The Union Address
No habla inglés? No problemo. Virginia Del. Elizabeth Guzman will give the Democrats’ official Spanish-language response, although it’s not clear how her message will differ from Kennedy’s.
But that’s not all. Vermont’s Independent Sen. Bernie. Sanders will be speaking off-the-cuff after the state of the union during a live streamed event on social media. Remember, Sanders isn’t an official member of the Democratic Party, so he’ll be going rogue as he did in 2017.
Former Maryland congresswoman and candidate in the Prince George’s County executive race, Donna F. Edwards will speak on behalf of the Working Families Party after Sanders.
MSNBC Guest Has Crazy Idea For State Of The Union Response, And It Involves The Black Panther Party
The way Donald Trump has taken advantage of this reality TV atmosphere, I think they should have gotten all of their all stars. This is a different day and age. We don’t have to play by the old playbook rule,” Cross said. “Get Kamala Harris. Get Cory Booker. Get Kirsten Gillibrand. And produce this like you’re producing the trailer for the Black Panther party. Get them all together. Rallying cry.”
Frederica Wilson: Trump Doesn’t Deserve to be “Honored with my Presence” at SOTU
SO SAYETH ANNIE BLACKLEY
Wilson said that instead, she will be viewing the SOTU with: “My local Muslims and Dreamers and local Mexicans, and local Haitians, and victims of sexual abuse, and local Gold Star families, and local Africans who are Nigerians and South Africans.”
[CtH: “honored with my presence” BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA ::gasp:: BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA]
VIDEO: Students hate Trump’s SOTU… before it even happens
Donald Trump’s State of the Union address is coming up this Tuesday, but some students must have gotten a sneak peek, because they already hated it.
THIS IS WHAT THE MEDIA AND THE SOCIALIST INDOCTRINATION CENTERS KNOWN AS COLLEGES HAVE PRODUCED
Critics of Trump have already begun to express displeasure with his actions in the days leading up to the speech, leading some to wonder whether this opposition is substantive, or rooted in a distaste of Trump as a person.
Wanting to find out, Campus Reform headed to New York University to ask students their opinions of President Trump’s State of the Union. The only problem for them was that the speech would not take place for another seven days.
Would that stop them from giving strong, condemnatory opinions on the speech?
State of the Union 2018 — Where to Watch, Follow, Join the Conversation
The president will likely urge both parties to solve the immigration problem in the United States, commit to serious border security, and announce plans for dramatic infrastructure spending.
The speech will be about “building a safe, strong, and proud America,” according to administration officials, thanking the heroic Americans who worked hard to restore our country after devastating hurricanes hit the country and the Americans who are working to keep the country safe
It seems like every time the president allows access to the media whores, he knows they’re going to make clowns of themselves. And every time, they oblige. They truly can’t help themselves. Jim Acosta, the pathetic Walter Cronkite wannabe, once again showed himself to be the empty soul, trying desperately to be taken seriously. I think he’d have had his credential pulled long ago if not for the fact Trump likes to mess with him and Sarah Sanders is really good at pimp slapping this little turd.
Pres. Trump to CNN’s Jim Acosta: ‘Out’
The veteran reporter along with other members of the press, were allowed inside the Oval Office during a meeting between Pres. Trump and Nursultan Nazarbayev the president of Kazakhstan.
When White House press aides started asking the press to leave, Acosta, whose contentious relationship with the Trump White House has been well-documented, tried to get in a few final questions.
“Did you say you want more people to come into the country from Norway, Mr. President?” Acosta asked.
“Thank you very much, everyone,” Trump responded.
Acosta asked the question again, to which Trump responded in a lower, softer voice, “I want people to come in from everywhere.”
“Just Caucasian or white countries, sir? Or do you want people to come in from other parts of the world…people of color?” Acosta asked.
The president pointed at Acosta and said: “Out.”
They need to look at revoking the White House press credentials of CNN’s Jim Acosta.
Here’s another installment of, ‘hey everybody, Trump’s a racist’ from our friends at FAKE NEWS CNN.
Disgraceful. And Trump doesn’t want any of it from Acosta
Acosta Suggests WH Doctor Could Be Withholding Information About Trump’s Health
CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta asked Physician to the President Navy Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson if he was withholding negative information about the president’s health from reporters during Tuesday’s press briefing.
Jackson assured Acosta that there was no information about Trump’s health being withheld, negative or otherwise.
“I can promise there is nothing that I am withholding from you. I can tell you, I’ve done the last four or five of these,” Jackson replied. “I’ve been involved in probably the last six or seven of these and this is hands down more information that has been put forth by any other assessment to date.”
DHS Secretary Asks to Move on After Four Democrats Ask about Sh**hole Comments
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen expressed a desire to “move forward and discuss ways in which we can protect our country,” during her testimony before the Judiciary Committee Tuesday after being asked for the fourth time about vulgar language reportedly used in an immigration meeting last week with President Trump.
“At any point in that conversation on Thursday did the President of the United States use a four-letter word beginning with s in combination with other words or alone that you heard?” Sen. Blumenthal asked.
“Sir, respectfully, I have answered this,” she replied. “I’ve been very patient with this line of questioning. I’m here to tell you about the threats our country faces and the needs and authorities that are needed by the Department of Homeland Security. I have nothing further to say about a meeting that happened over a week ago. I’d like to move forward and discuss ways in which we can protect our country.”
Democrats: Trump must capitulate on DACA “to prove you’re not prejudiced or bigoted”
Trump denied using the term, and is backed up by Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who were at the same meeting and dispute Durbin’s account.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was at that meeting also. She testified today before a Senate committee which included Durbin.
Durbin fell flat on his face when Nielsen testified she did not remember Trump using the “s***hole” word during the meeting, and that Trump did not have a “specific categorization of countries in Africa.”
NJ Senator Cory Booker then went ballistic, berating Nielsen and accusing her of lying, your “silence and amnesia is complicit.”
The questioning of Nielsen, and Booker’s theatrics, are part of a concerted Democrat effort to turn DACA into a racial issue if Democrats don’t get their way.
It’s all a charade that was laid bare by Chuck Schumer today, who demanded Trump get on board Democrat DACA demands or be labeled a racist:
“If you want to begin the long road back to prove you’re not prejudiced or bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise … One that was aimed at meeting the concerns you voiced,” Schumer said, noting it was negotiated by three Republicans and three Democrats. “This may be the last train leaving the station. President Trump needs to get on board.”
HOW IS THIS NOT A THREAT?
This was a line of attack also used by Durbin:
Cory Booker ‘seething with anger’ as he yells at DHS chief Kirstjen Nielsen
“I had tears of rage,” Booker bellowed at Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in reference to when he first heard of Trump’s “shithole countries” remark last week.
“And for you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss the questions of my colleagues, with tens of millions Americans hurting right now because they’re worried about what happened in the White House …”
MSNBC’s Mika Wants ‘Small Crowd’ For Trump’s State Of The Union
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said that those who disagree with President Donald Trump should “give him a small crowd” at the upcoming State of the Union address.
“I really feel that Democrats and any Republicans with a spine who actually believe that this president is lying and perhaps acting in a way that is bad for this country should not show up for the State of the Union, and some are speaking about that. Give him a small crowd,” retorted Brezinski.
[CtH: It should be remembered that, during his time in office, President Lincoln was reviled by the Democrats, half the Republicans, and a lot of the media.]
Squinty and Meat Puppet To Be Honored for Responsible Journalism. No, Really…
“Two of most wildly irresponsible members of liberal media, MSNBC anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, are going to receive an award for being part of “a distinguished group of journalists and First Amendment leaders that exemplify responsible journalism and who practice their constitutionally guaranteed duty to seek and report the truth.”
That’s not a joke, the Radio Television Digital News Foundation (RTDNF) will actually be honoring the Morning Joe co-hosts during the organization’s annual First Amendment Awards dinner on March 8 in Washington, D.C.The couple will specifically receive the Leonard Zeidenberg First Amendment Award for “a radio or television journalist or news executive who has made a major contribution to the protection of First Amendment freedoms.”
DC Mayor Addresses How High School Grads All Got Diplomas Without Meeting Requirements
An investigation by WAMU and NPR has found that Ballou High School’s administration graduated dozens of students despite high rates of unexcused absences. We reviewed hundreds of pages of Ballou’s attendance records, class rosters and emails after a district employee shared the private documents. Half of the graduates missed more than three months of school last year, unexcused. One in five students was absent more than present — missing more than 90 days of school.
To add insult to injury, the majority of Ballou’s 2017 graduates missed more than six weeks of school. One teacher recalls seeing kids in the 12th grade that couldn’t read and write.
Local viewers were skeptical and blasted the school system and D.C. leadership in the comment section.
“Dr. Reeves should be prosecuted,” one commenter said.
“Revoke every diploma of every student who failed to meet grad requirements,” another wrote. “Otherwise this is a cruel joke that will have a lasting impact on every DCPS graduate.”
40 Percent Of Kids Now Born To Single Moms—Up 700 Percent Since 1960
A recent report from the Social Capital Project reveals that the American family is disintegrating, fast. Fully 40 percent of mothers are currently unmarried.
This is partly due to the increasing acceptance in out-of-wedlock births. But, as the authors point out, this rise has a few more concrete explanations, such as: increased unwed promiscuity, fewer “shotgun marriages” to pregnant single women, and increasing delayed marriage/rising divorce.
AZ Sen candidate: Your “clean DACA bill” isn’t happening
McSALLY IS A FORMER FIGHTER PILOT RUNNING FOR FLAKE’S SENATE SEAT
Major news outlets are already sounding the alarm about a possible government shutdown, assuming that a “clean” DACA bill is the hill that Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi want to die on this week.
This seems particularly true of Arizona Congresswoman (and newly announced Senate candidate) Martha McSally. She was making the rounds on cable news this week, letting the minority party know that they need to pack the “clean” bill idea away because it’s not gonna happen.
Fox News tweeted the video of that exchange for everyone yesterday.
This wasn’t a particularly new position for McSally, who has been solid on immigration issues from the beginning. She was also out with a similar warning during an interview last week, when it might have actually done some good had the Democrats been listening.
Trump: Freedom Doesn’t Come From Govt, It’s a ‘Sacred Right From Almighty God’
Today, President Donald Trump issued a proclamation declaring January 16, 2018 as Religious Freedom Day, wherein he noted that, “Our forefathers, seeking refuge from religious persecution, believed in the eternal truth that freedom is not a gift from the government, but a sacred right from Almighty God.”
Being a Democrat means you don’t need a conscience or a moral compass. You cater to the ignorant, the lazy, and the morally reprehensible. You blatantly lie to them. Most of them know it and they don’t care. They are motivated by greed,ignorance, and hate. You stand for nothing except enriching yourself at the expense of the the law-abiding people of this country who work and pay the taxes you buy votes with.
When they’re in power, like the dark days of the Obama reign of terror, they specialize in spreading misery to all quarters. Times like these, when they’re relegated to comic relief, they can display a particular pathos born of desperation to be relevant. They will return to the throne one day, but until then they’re just fun to watch.
Frederica Wilson Joins Dems In Boycotting Trump’s State Of The Union Address
“For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement. “I have no doubt that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises, and lies.”
As for Frederica Wilson, the gobs of attention she got for exploiting the wife of a fallen soldier has faded away – an easily forgotten embarrassing memory.
So naturally she thinks her next ticket to cable news is announcing she too will skip Trump’s SOTU address.
Black unemployment is at an all-time low – falling to below 7% for the first time ever. And the primary beneficiaries of President Trump stemming the flow of unskilled illegal aliens into the country are black Americans. Now you would think that Frederica, John and Maxine would be more focused on the constituents in their districts than flooding the country will unskilled, cheap labor. But for the Democrat Party, all that matters are illegal aliens.
American blacks need to understand that they have been cast aside. Parasites suck the life out of a host then move on. And the Democrat parasites in Congress have drained all advantage out of the black vote. Now they’ve moved on to illegals.
Since they have nothing to show for their endless years in Congress, all they have left is showboating and demagoguery. So they put on petty displays for attention and hurl slanderous attacks at the President — all to mask their years and years of inaction.
So go ahead, stay home, you useless blobs of irrelevance.
Maxine Waters: MLK Would Be Marching to Impeach Trump
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) took note of Martin Luther King Day Monday by tweeting that if civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was alive today he would “be marching not only for civil rights & protecting voting rights, but to urge Members of Congress to accept their responsibility to save the U.S. from a dangerous man who has no respect for our Constitution & no concern for strengthening our democracy.”
Dems ‘Terrified’ of Trump Cracking Black Vote, Civil Rights Leader Says
With infamous race card losing its potency, guests on ‘The Laura Ingraham Show’ say president’s program threatens old alliances.
“[Democrats] are terrified that this president gets somewhere north of 10 to 15 percent of the black vote,” said Niger Innis, spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) (pictured above right, in red tie, in the image on this page). “And they’re terrified because, if that happens, then it is first of all, mathematically, electorally impossible for a Democrat to win.”
Innis added, “But more than that, it is because they are so invested in having a monopoly of the black vote, and that monopoly is based on blacks as forever seeing themselves as victims, forever seeing themselves as victims of racism, of economic depravity of the white man.”
The battle to shut down Obama’s presidential center
What initially started out as a library has morphed into a 20-acre private “center,” and some environmentalists and historians are unhappy with the Obama Foundation’s plans to swoop in and take over a national historic place.
The Obama Foundation originally said it would house a presidential library on the property and vowed to have the National Archives oversee the facility because of its placement on public land. But that’s no longer the case, and some are balking at the change in plans.
Surprise: The States That Hemorrhaged Population Fastest in 2017 Were…
Some of the politicians objecting most loudly to the GOP tax reform law were Democrats from high tax blue states, whose constituents for years have been somewhat insulated from their exorbitant state and local tax bills via an ability to write them off as a federal tax deduction. Under the new law, those who itemize (a small fraction of taxpayers to begin with) will only be able to deduct up to $10,000 in SALT-related (property tax) expenses. This will expose some of them, especially those in upper-income brackets, to the true costs of living in tax happy jurisdictions. These people make up the lion’s share the roughly five percent of taxpayers who stand to see a net tax increase next year — whereas 80 percent of all taxpayers, and 91 percent of middle class earners will get a cut.
US Military Members Receive Biggest Pay Bump Since 2010
Military members will see their paychecks rise by the largest percent increase since 2010 this week.
At the end of December, President Donald Trump, by way of executive order, mandated a 2.4% pay hike for uniformed service members and a 1.9% raise for federal workers. The Trump administration’s initial budget blueprint called for a 2.1% pay increase, while the House and Senate suggested the 2.4% figure, which was eventually adopted by the president.
Tom Cotton: ‘Let’s See How’ Shutting Down Government Over DACA Amnesty ‘Works Out for’ Democrats
Cotton, however, warned that if Democrats were to shut down the government over amnesty, it could have a detrimental impact on their re-election efforts in states like Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Montana.
Towards the end of 2017, Democrats in the House and Senate made similar threats that they would shut down the federal government over an amnesty for illegal aliens. But the left-wing party quickly backed off the plan when public opinion polls showed Americans were increasingly opposed to a shutdown over a year-end amnesty that would further suppress the wages of American workers.
Law-Abiding American Families Are the Victims in the Dreamers Debacle
Democrats would have us believe removing these people is inhumane. What’s inhumane is ignoring laws we don’t like and vigorously enforcing those that we do. It’s a tragedy of justice, and it creates an operational double standard that is destroying our nation while incentivizing bad actors from around the world to take advantage of us.

Trump Administration Plans To Help States Implement Work Requirements for Medicaid
Kentucky has just received approval from the Trump administration to implement their work requirements, which mirror their requirements for food stamps. There are 650,000 Medicaid beneficiaries in Kentucky. Many of these individuals do not have any earned income and do not work at all. Under the new requirements, these beneficiaries will have to either work, train, or volunteer for 20 hours a week in order to receive benefits.
According to research from the Foundation for Government Accountability, the number of Medicaid beneficiaries has more than doubled since 2000. Now 75 million are enrolled in the program, which includes 28 million able-bodied adults. In addition, 52 percent of Medicaid beneficiaries that are able-bodied do not work.
CNN Anchor Alisyn Camerota Brought To Tears Over Trump “Shithole” Remark
Economists Agree: Trump, Not Obama, Gets Credit For Economy
The Wall Street Journal asked 68 business, financial and academic economists who was responsible for the strengthening of the economy, and most “suggested Mr. Trump’s election deserves at least some credit” for the upturn.
A majority said the president had been “somewhat” or “strongly” positive for job creation, gross domestic product growth and the rising stock market.
COVFEFE!! Dow Reaches 26,000 Points!… Up 1,000 Points in Just SEVEN Days

The Dow reached all-time new highs a record 71 times in 2017, breaking the record for the most all-time highs in a calendar year set in 1995.
NYT Officially Designates Trump A Racist, And Nobody Cares
The New York Times wants to make it official: President Donald Trump is a racist. On Friday, the editorial board of America’s most influential paper asserted there was no doubt of that.
The editorial was in response to Trump reportedly asking why America takes in so many immigrants from “shithole” countries instead of places like Norway. “Where to begin?” the Times’ editorial board collectively sighed when reflecting on Trump’s statement. “How about with a simple observation: The president of the United States is a racist.”
It shouldn’t be doubted that folks like Charles Blow and others in the media genuinely believe Trump is a racist for saying “shithole” countries and criticizing illegal immigrants in colorful language. But they aren’t just saying what they believe to get it off their chest.
The commentators wanting Trump to be certified as a racist understand the power of that charge and how it has played out in politics in the past.
Republican Party Uses State of the Union Response to Attack Donald Trump
The opposition response to the president’s State of the Union is ordinarily meant to rebut what the president says. Not this time. They chose instead to attack the current front-runner for the nomination of their party because of his apparent dislike of the illegal vermin invading our borders to crush our economy by lapping up benefits that should go to Americans.
Meet Governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina.The daughter of Sikhs and a rising star amongst the GOP elite.
Rising star Nikki Haley says she is open to becoming GOP running mate
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says she would consider being the vice presidential candidate for the Republican Party this year.
The rising political star revealed that she is open to the possibility in an appearance on NBC News’ “Today” show Wednesday, a day after delivering the GOP response to President Obama’s final State of the Union address.
Republican presidential candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush praised Haley’s speech as providing a clear vision for a better tomorrow.
RUSH HAD A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT TAKE THAN THE MEDIA WHORES
What the Nikki Haley Speech Means
A little bit questionable, but on balance I haven’t had a whole lot of problems with her. But, boy, last night her response? I think it’s proof and it’s an example of so much. For one thing, it’s almost absolute proof of what I have been saying for last couple years now, that the Republican Party’s trying to drive conservatives out of the party. But I think it’s more than that. It’s certainly that, but her speech last night sort of expanded the theme of who is and who isn’t qualified to be a Republican, and the Republican Party is still anti-conservative http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2016/01/13/what_the_nikki_haley_speech_means
FRANK LUNTZ IS A WALKING BALL OF PHLEGM. THIS IS HIS STUPID FOCUS GROUP AFTER THE SOTU.
IT’S FOUR MINUTES, BUT THE MONEY SHOT IS AT THE 1:57 MARK WHEN NEARLY EVERYBODY IN HIS HAND-PICKED PACK OF STOOGES BLAMES THE REPUBLICANS FOR NOT KISSING OBAMA’S ASS AND ACCEPTING ALL THE BLAME.
In Obamaworld, income inequality translates to it being unfair that people who work hard, 6-7 days a week, 18 hours per day to build a business, and sacrifice to achieve some financial stability should have more than people who start having kids they can’t/won’t support, drop out of school, and expect to enjoy the good things that other people have worked hard for. Obama took it upon himself to make things even. Not by lifting people out of poverty but by forcing the shrinking middle class into it.

Obama SOTU Talks Income Inequality, Michelle Watches in a $2K Designer Dress
FROM THE TOTALLY UNBIASED PEOPLE MAGAZINE WEBSITE:
The First Lady stole the style spotlight in a yellow-orange wool crepe dress by Narciso Rodriguez at the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday.
Fittingly, Narciso Rodriguez was also the designer behind her 2008 election night dress. Last year, Obama wore a grey Michael Kors suit channeling actress Julianna Marguiles from The Good Wife.

Barack Obama #SOTU: Michelle Obama sends message in optic prop yellow dress?
Narciso Rodriguez, who designed Michelle’s dress, labeled the hue “marigold.” Even the designer of the dress appeared to slide under the radar as an important prop during the State of the Union Address. Rodriguez is a Cuban-American designer and some saw this as a nod to the perceived accomplishments of the Obama administration for “the resumption of diplomatic relations.” http://www.examiner.com/article/barack-obama-sotu-michelle-obama-sends-message-optic-prop-yellow-dress
