Project Veritas has released undercover videos exposing teachers unions covering up child abuse that the law requires be reported. Because of Project Veritas’ undercover videos, two New Jersey union presidents, Dr. David Perry and Kathleen Valencia have been suspended so far. On Monday, another video was released showing yet another union president, Nick Nugent, bragging about past cover-ups. Continue reading

This is later than I’ve ever posted but there are some serious things I’m going to be getting to in the next few days.
Every time I see the way our educational system has left the path of practical knowledge and raced headlong into a full blown indoctrination system for little socialists.
Great plan, guys! Illinois Dems vote to replace armed security at schools with mental health workers
The Illinois House of Representatives has come up with a brilliant plan to secure the safety of children in the state’s school system.
The plan is brilliant for Democrats, of course, who lead the state governing body as it calls for replacing armed police officers in schools with mental health professionals – who are unarmed, according to an Associated Press report.

Bernie Sanders: ‘Trump Agenda Is Dead’ if Democrats Win Majority in 2018
The former 2016 presidential candidate said progressive candidates on the left are more electable than conservative Democrats, adding that Americans are catching on to ideas such as universal health care.
Sanders told the Times he plans to endorse candidates in the 2018 races, but he has not endorsed a candidate in the New York governor’s race.
Mylan Executives Donate Big Money to Manchin
Company gave over $50K to senator in first quarter of 2018 while it was planning West Virginia layoffs
Executives at Mylan N.V., the pharmaceutical company that drew controversy for increasing the price of EpiPen devices nearly 400 percent, donated heavily to Democratic senator Joe Manchin’s reelection campaign as the company planned to lay off more than 400 workers in his home state of West Virginia.
Mylan—whose CEO, Heather Bresch, is Manchin’s daughter—announced Friday that it will lay off 15 percent of the workforce at its manufacturing plant in Morgantown, W.Va. The plant, one of about 50 that Mylan has around the world, employs upwards of 3,000 West Virginians and is one of the state’s largest employers.
Comey memos show Valerie Jarrett’s CNN daughter a useful tool for Democrats
SOUNDS LIKE NBC HIRING CHEESY CLINTON FOR $600k AND SHE DID ALMOST NO WORK
CNN hired Valerie Jarrett’s daughter, Laura Jarrett, as the Justice Department’s correspondent, despite having zero background in journalism. She just waltzed in and got an on-screen, big-dollar job at CNN, same as you or I could do, right? She’s still there, by the way.
And by another coincidence, the DoJ of Jarrett’s beat oversees the star of this drama, the FBI.
Starbucks’ ‘unconscious bias training’ isn’t enough, protesters say
YOU CANNOT SATISFY THESE SLUGS
More than 100 fraternity members and supporters attended the “Rally Against Racial Injustice” on Sunday afternoon, held near the downtown Philadelphia Starbucks where Nelson and his friend, Donte Robinson, were arrested on April 12 after the store’s manager asked them to leave because they hadn’t purchased anything.
Starbucks apologized to the men in a statement last week, saying it was learning more about what it “did wrong” and was willing to take the necessary steps “to fix it,” according to a statement.
Mukasey: Obama Wanted Clinton Cleared to Avoid Being Linked to Her Misconduct
“President Obama was sending messages and receiving messages on Hillary Clinton’s private email server,” Mukasey said. “Jim Comey knew that, and when President Obama went on television and said, ‘There’s no issue here, she didn’t really intend to cause harm,’ what he was really saying in essence is, ‘You’d better let her off, because if you wind up accusing her, you wind up accusing me.
Stephanopoulos: ‘Not Always Fair’ to Report ‘Wrongdoing’ of Candidates, It ‘Equalizes’
The actual problem with the media was that Clinton was their candidate and they would do everything to protect her. There really wasn’t the equalization that Stephanopoulos was whining about. Despite victories, CNN was badgering Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on when he was going to drop out of the Democratic. And on NBC, Clinton fangirl Andrea Mitchell was suggesting that an AP report detailing special favors for Clinton Foundation donors was just an annoying “headache.”
7th Circuit Sides with Sanctuary Cities, Keeps Federal Money Flowing Nationwide
LEFTIST JUDGES ARE VITAL TO FORCING THE ‘PROGRESSIVE’ AGENDA ON THE PUBLIC.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, based in Chicago, affirmed a U.S. district court’s imposition of a nationwide injunction preventing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his Department of Justice from withholding “Bryne Grants” for state and local law enforcement in jurisdictions that adopt so-called “sanctuary” policies.
All three judges on the panel agreed with the district court that Chicago has a reasonable likelihood of prevailing on their argument that withholding funds violate constitutionally mandated separation of powers between Congress and the executive and impermissibly infringes on Chicago’s sovereignty under federalism. All three are Republican appointees.
Democrats are getting desperate as Mueller stalls
In a move that reeks of desperation, the DNC filed a civil suit Friday against President Trump’s campaign, Russia and WikiLeaks, alleging a vast (right-wing!) conspiracy to tip the election to Trump.
The suit’s flamboyant charges made headlines, but that only served to obscure the real meaning. Namely, that top Dems are giving up their fantasies that special counsel Robert Mueller will deliver them from political purgatory by getting the goods on Trump.
Joy Reid Guest: Hannity Viewers Lack “Intellectual Curiosity,” Could Drive Country to War
The liberal elite’s contempt for conservatives was on vivid display on Joy Reid’s MSNBC show this morning. In a long segment attacking Sean Hannity, guest Tiffany Cross said:
“[Hannity] has a hotline to the White House. He also has a hotline to three million viewers every night . . . This is a scary thing because the people who watch him do not have the intellectual curiosity to get information other places, other than this echo chamber that is Fox News. So this group of people may be the people that drive us into a war.”
Kanye West’s Tweets Admiring Black Conservative Candace Owens Sparks Angry Backlash
BLIND HATRED IS THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE RESPONSE TO RATIONAL THOUGHT
Kanye West sparked an angry backlash by tweeting his admiration for a black far-right media personality and the way she ‘thinks’ on Saturday.
The rapper endorsed YouTube personality Candace Owen, a woman who is known for her controversial views on racism.
‘I love the way Candace Owens thinks,’ he said on Saturday morning.
He would follow up with ‘only free thinkers’ a few moments after the first tweet.
The original tweet quickly gained traction as over 32,000 people liked the post and another 10,200 retweeted it.
Democrats try to win back labor in order to win back the House
RUN AS A CONSERVATIVE, GOVERN AS A LIBERAL…THEY’VE BEEN DOING IT FOR DECADES
When Democrat Conor Lamb stood in a sea of United Mine Workers of America here in early March, it was clear that Democrats had found a way to bring the blue-collar worker back into their camp.
The union voters I talked to said they didn’t feel that Democrats in Washington had their back; that they were too progressive, too strident, and way out of touch with their lives and needs.
The Dire Consequence of the Republicans Losing CongressOur booming economy, reversals of Obama’s destructive executive orders, and Trump restoring power to We the People confirm that Trump is well on his way to making America great again. If the Democrats win back the House and Senate, all Trump’s progress for us will stop.
After impeaching Trump, Democrats will revert back to their America in which achievers are demonized and punished. Remarkably, Democrats (leftists) view our country as the greatest source of evil on the planet. Consequently, Democrats will continue their mission to make America last.

Clyburn: If Democrats Don’t Win House in 2018, Leadership Should All Be Replaced
THE YOUNG SOCIALISTS WANT THEIR CUT OF THE PROFITS FROM THE OLD GUYS
“If we’re still in the minority, all of us have got to go,” he told Politico after the annual fish fry he holds in Columbia, South Carolina on Friday.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) has faced some calls from within her caucus to step aside but has said such a move would thrust House Democrats into chaos.
With a younger class of Democrats clamoring to break into leadership, Clyburn, 77, appeared at the fish fry alongside Rep. Tim Ryan, the Ohio Democrat who challenged Pelosi unsuccessfully for her leadership position in 2016.
Bits & Bytes
Democrats have just pledged to repeal the president’s popular tax cuts if they win this fall? Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) rightly declared the plan a “nonstarter” and the White House concurred. “Only tone-deaf Democrats could think the proper response to the booming Trump economy, higher wages and hard-working Americans keeping more of their own money is to reverse the policies that got us here.”
Unions have been seen as the foundation of Democrat election victories for decades. But that could now be changing due to the popularity of Trump’s tariff proposals with the major unions. During a Thursday interview with the decidedly anti-Trump MSNBC network, the president of United Steelworkers had shockingly positive words to say about Trump and his tariff plan. “We’ve been trying to get Democrats to this for more than 30 years.”
Since President Trump’s election, the left has morphed into a bizarre mixture of fascist groups “against fascism,” free speech groups that fanatically shut-down speech with which they disagree, and pro-illegal immigrant groups that ignore DACA.
Unfunny Kathy Griffin’s career imploded after she posted a photo of herself holding a bloody severed Donald Trump “head.” Now she says she’s going to do it again with Mike Pence.

Some Food for Thought
The Supreme Court Issues Its Decision On Trump’s DACA Appeal
In an extraordinary procedural move, the government appealed directly to the Supreme Court. Under normal procedure, the government would challenge Alsup’s order at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a principle antagonist to Trump’s ambitions throughout his presidency. Solicitor General Noel Francisco, the government’s Supreme Court lawyer, argued the case required the tribunal’s urgent attention, as Alsup’s decision “requires the government to sanction indefinitely an ongoing violation of federal law being committed by nearly 700,000 aliens.”
The justices rarely grant such requests.
Terry McAuliffe: ‘Who Better To Take On Trump Than Me?’
THIS IS THE MOST VICIOUS PUNK IN POLITICS
Of course, we’re barely into Year 2 of President Trump, but that doesn’t mean Democrats aren’t jockeying right now to get into position to run in 2020. And as dirty as Hillay and Bill are, McAuliffe is that times 10 — or 1,000. Plus, all the filthy Clinton leeches are without a host, now that Hillary has lost for a second time and vows not to run again.
If unions lose the Janus case, how will they survive? Best bet is to reinvent themselves as professional associations
IN WISCONSIN, UNIONS AND DEMOCRATS (REDUNDANT) POURED MORE THAN 10 MILLION DOLLARS INTO AN EFFORT TO GET RID OF GOVERNOR WALKER AND THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY. THEY LOST. UNIONS NOW CANNOT COMPEL ANY MEMBER TO PAY DUES. THEIR CASH FLOW CRATERED.
There’s much more than free speech at stake here, though. If the court sides with Janus, unions across the country stand to lose millions of dollars a year in guaranteed revenue — potentially enough to cripple their operations. Nobody would be hit harder than the nation’s two largest teachers’ unions — including the National Education Association, the largest public sector union in the country.
Drugs suspect on toilet strike for 38 days ‘would rather die than take a poo’
I DON’T THINK IT’S PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE TO GO THAT LONG WITHOUT GOING
A suspected drug dealer on a record-breaking toilet strike would rather die than take a poo, his lawyer has said. Lamarr Chambers, 24, has now spent 38 days in police custody after Essex Police arrested and detained him on January 17.
Officers believe he swallowed some of the drugs before his arrest in Harlow, Essex, and they have been patiently waiting for him to finally go ever since.
Michelle Obama’s upcoming memoir replicates Obama’s road to power to a T
As Lifson notes, the Democrats are in bad shape, at least if they run on policies. But if they can galvanize the black vote, which is what they did with Obama, they are in a position to win. They are sure they can’t win if they don’t. What would be more logical than for Michelle Obama to write an identity politics book, in first person, Oprah-style, as a backdrop “narrative” to galvanize those voters? The Obamas always were about “narrative” as a means of concealing their policy objectives by promoting their personas. Obama’s “mind-meld,” and right hand man, after all, was fiction writer and major Ben Rhodes. Ol’ Ben knew more than anyone about creating “narratives.”
Elementary School Students Surprise WWII Veteran with Gifts After He Lost His Home in a Fire
It’s Not About Saving Lives: Democratic Senator Says Gun Debate Will Help His Party In Midterms
Did anyone catch Sen. Bill Nelson’s (D-FL) rather gratuitous swipe at Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday? CNN held a town hall event in Sunrise, Florida hosted by Jake Tapper, where National Rifle Association Dana Loesch and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) literally ventured into the lion’s den. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) also participated. It was a two-hour bashing of Rubio, the NRA, Loesch, every law-abiding gun owner, and every supporter of the Second Amendment. It was show trial, a North Korean kangaroo court that resembled something out of the two minutes of hate from Orwell’s 1984.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders cops to making a rare mistake and says Trump has not confirmed for WHCD yet – but WILL go to Gridiron
The White House told DailyMail.com Monday that President Trump would attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but then walked it back
The president will, however, attend this year’s white-tie Gridiron dinner, an event also hosted by Washington journalists
Trump skipped both the Gridiron and the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner last year as he warred with the so-called ‘fake news’
The president’s willingness to go to the Gridiron suggests he may be open to attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner as well
President Obama said a President Trump would bring ‘change’ to the White House, and then this image flashed to the audience of the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner
As country listens to Florida teens, Black Lives Matter youths feel ignored
THIS IS THE CRAP IN THE PAPERS I DELIVER EVERY DAY.
The young people of Black Lives Matter are hurt. And they have every right to be.
When they were protesting in the streets of cities across America, much of the country didn’t bother to listen to their message. They were not embraced by the mainstream for their bravery, their determination or resolve to bring attention to reckless police killings that disproportionately impact young African-Americans.
In a tweet last week, Oprah Winfrey said the inspiring youths in Florida reminded her of the “Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.” She pledged to match George and Amal Clooney’s $500,000 donation to the youths’ March for Our Lives planned for March 24.
U.S. Army Awards ‘Heroism Medals’ to 3 JROTC Students Killed in Florida High School Shooting
THESE YOUNG PEOPLE SHOWED MORE GUTS THAN THE COWARDLY COPS WHO CRINGED OUTSIDE WHILE INNOCENTS WERE BEING SLAUGHTERED
The U.S. Army announced Tuesday that Alaina Petty, Martin Duque, and Peter Wang—who were all students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and also served as cadets in the school’s JROTC program—would receive JROTC Heroism Medals for their acts of bravery during Wednesday’s shooting.
Army spokesman Michael Maddox said that Petty’s family had been presented with the award at her funeral Monday, and Wang’s family received the award during his funeral service Tuesday. Duque’s family will accept the medal at his funeral service Saturday.
Did the PA Supreme Court Just Make it Easier for Dems to Win in the Midterms?
An important swing state may have just swung in Democrats’ favor. Although Republicans hold 13 House seats in Pennsylvania to Democrats’ five, a new ruling from the state supreme court appears to give the Democrats a favorable new congressional map.
THE DEMOCRATS WILL PICK UP 4-5 EXTRA SEATS BEFORE A BALLOT IS CAST. THEY ARE GOING TO STEAL THIS ELECTION IN ORDER TO GET A MAJORITY AND IMPEACH TRUMP.
Suspected poacher killed, eaten by pack of lions
A suspected poacher was fatally mauled and eaten by a pack of lions near a national park in South Africa, leaving behind just the man’s “head and some remains,” police said.
A police spokesman in Limpopo told AFP that a loaded hunting rifle was found near the man’s body early Saturday at a private game park in Hoedspruit, west of Kruger National Park, which contains large numbers of the Big 5 game species — lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo.
“It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions,” Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP. “They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left
THE POACHER WAS ACCOMPANIED BY AN ILLEGAL FUR BUYER FROM EASTERN EUROPE. THE POACHER WAS EATEN BY THE FEMALE LION. THE CZECH WAS IN THE MALE.

Friday Catch All
Been spending most of my days sleeping. Thought I’d clear some things out before I take another nap. Did I mention that retirement has its good points?
Brooklyn Assemblywoman Pamela Harris stole tens of thousands in Hurricane Sandy money for vacations, lingerie
As Coney Island neighbors and the rest of the city struggled with the massive 2012 devastation, Harris lined her pockets with cash meant to aid the hurricane’s newly homeless, a federal indictment charges.
Harris spent $10,000 on vacations, including a cruise ship getaway, and shopped at Victoria’s Secret with her dirty money, authorities charged Tuesday.
And she allegedly urged witnesses to lie to the FBI in a failed cover-up of her crimes.
Harris looted some $60,000 in state and federal funds in several scams, including Federal Emergency Management Agency money for “temporary housing assistance” after the hurricane, officials charged.
Harris, 57, is a former correction officer and previously served as head of a Coney Island non-profit. She was accused of stealing $34,000 in cash provided by the City Council to pay rent for her group.
NYC Mayor to sue “Big Oil” for causing Hurricane Sandy or something
Many people still foolishly blame things like lightning strikes, tornadoes, tsunamis and hurricanes on the random vagaries of fate or simply describe them as acts of God. But not the intrepid Mayor of New York City, who apparently also doubles as a sleuth in his spare time. He’s been investigating the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy for half a decade now, seeking out the cause of the storm. And now he’s cracked the case, determining that the lethal storm which wrecked large parts of the northeast was caused by a coalition of five energy companies. And by God, he’s suing them over it.
Report: Frustrated Trump asks senators, why are we letting people in from “sh*thole countries”?
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday.
And just an fyi, notice the source: a Democratic aide who wasn’t even in the meeting.
Three guesses that this gets pulled back or the real story comes out later. But in the meantime, they’ll spread the ‘source’ said story.
CNN Goes Off on a Sh*thole Sh*tstorm: Mentions “Sh*thole” at least 36 Times in One Night
On Thursday afternoon President Donald Trump asked a group of pro-amnesty senators why the US should welcome migrants from “sh*tholes” like Haiti, Central America or African nations.
It was a good question.
But Democrats, liberal media and global community were outraged that the president would use such an offensive term to describe the global community’s failed states.
The hosts and contributors on CNN went on a sh*thole sh*tstorm last night. The word “sh*thole” was mentioned at least 36 times on CNN on Thursday
RINO Jeff Flake Announces ‘Gang of 6’ Have Reached a DACA Amnesty Agreement
Flake is an anti-Trump pro-amnesty Republican. He is not running for reelection this year in Arizona.
WHY IS HE STILL HERE?
The Gang of Six includes Republicans Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake, Corey Gardner, and Democrats Dick Durbin, Michael Bennet, and Robert Menendez. The three Republicans also are top anti-Trumpers.
Democratic Congresswomen Will Wear Black at Trump’s State of the Union to Protest Sexual Assualt
IF THEY WORE HIJABS OVER THEIR HEADS IT WOULD BE FINE WITH ME
Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA), along with the Democratic Women’s Working Group, is calling on the men and women in Congress to wear black to President Trump’s upcoming State of the Union address in solidarity with the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements against sexual harassment.
[CtH: I’d be more impressed if they wore black to protest all the lives that have been damaged and destroyed by perps forcing abortions on their victims to cover up sex crimes.]
Dems Admit They Need Illegals For Their Votes
Leaked memo reveals they are fighting to make the DREAMer nightmare permanent.
Republicans may not be angels but they have never wielded compassion as a cudgel the way Democrats do. But this memo ought to end Democrats’ phony compassion shtick for all time. Power is the only thing that matters to them. They don’t care about America or Americans. They care only about winning. Honest observers have known this for years.
What did Democrats actually do this time to help solidify their image as the party of power over principle?
Democrats can’t win elections without cheating. They pushed the 1993 Motor-Voter law to make voter fraud easy to commit and difficult to prosecute. They oppose voter ID laws tooth-and-nail for the same reason. They changed immigration laws a long time ago so they could change the electorate by importing new voters.

Nancy Pelosi Scoffs At ‘Crumb’ Bonuses By U.S. Companies As A Result Of Tax Cuts

The Detroit Free Press obtained documents from the Department of Labor that in the past two years, over 300 labor union chapters have detected fraud. Two cases with the United Auto Workers Union in Michigan and New Jersey had embezzling episodes that soared over $1 million. The Free Press added that at times, some people who have been tasked with looking after the books were simply not qualified for the job, some cases they were headed up by people who couldn’t balance their own checkbook.

Happy Race Neutral Friday
The original title was going to be “Happy race neutral, non-gender specific, nonbinary, gluten-free, nonjudgmental, pasteurized, homogenized, lactose free, gun free, zenith of crass commercialism Friday.” But it wouldn’t fit.
We have entered the month of retail Armageddon known as the Christmas shopping season. My promise to you is that you will never see ‘xmas’ in any reference to the celebration of Christ’s birth in anything I post. We are not ashamed of who we are.
Doing my paper delivery this morning, I passed through the parking lot of a Menard’s and a Target store. There were a few people at 3:30, but it’s not like it was some years ago when stores didn’t begin the orgy of spending on Thanksgiving night.
There was a time in my foolish youth when I enjoyed going to shopping malls, buying gifts, fighting crowds, immersed in the frenzy of the day.
When I was in college we played a game called ‘the parking lot game.’ Sick, but fun. We’d park in the last row at the mall and go inside. When we came out there were cars circling the parking lot like so many mechanical buzzards, cruising for a parking spot near the front. We’d take out our keys and pretend we were looking for where we parked and see how many cars we could get to follow us looking to grab a spot, like so many sheep following a Judas goat. Three was the most we ever scored. Perverse, twisted, cruel, but all we were really doing was using other peoples’ greed and sloth to amuse ourselves.
These days I can’t imagine people actually subjecting themselves to the bad attitudes of sales people and the short tempers of shoppers looking for deals on big screen TVs. What little shopping I do is accomplished from right where I’m sitting now. Go online, order what you want, and they send it to your door. No muss, no fuss, no smart asses playing the parking lot game.
Hoping everyone had a wonderful day yesterday. It was quiet around here for the most part, just my stepson and I enjoying a football game and gorging on his mama’s culinary expertise. It all seems so pointless somehow. Two weeks of preparation, two days of getting ready for family, and in a half hour it’s over. Now comes four weeks of shopping, decorating, wrapping, tree buying and installation, and in a matter of hours it’s over. Nothing else to look forward to for four months but cold, ice, and snow. It’s called life and we learn to live it.
There is a mix of regular political nonsense leavened with some warm items to help your digestion today.
Trumps Spend Thanksgiving Serving Meals To Active Duty Armed Forces
“Incredible people, you’ve done an incredible job,” Trump said.
The First Lady jumped in to tell the group: “Happy Thanksgiving!” She smiled and waved with both hands as she spoke.
The president offered to take questions from the Coast Guard, although no one spoke up — which the president says he loves.
JUST THINK… A FIRST LADY WHO DOESN’T NEED A BOOB BELT OR $500 SNEAKERS TO LOOK STUNNING (not saying the Wookie could, on the best day she ever had).
DEMOCRAT NEWS NETWORK: CNN Fails To Report These 24 Democrat Sex Scandals
All of the Democrat sex scandals that CNN has failed to report on have made news in 2017, with 19 of the 24 making news within the last month.
THE MEDIA GOES TO GREAT LENGTHS TO AVOID TALKING ABOUT THE 800 POUND HAM-HANDED GORILLA IN THE ROOM.
When CNN is not busy giving President Donald Trump 93% negative coverage, covering for Islamic terrorists, botching gun reports, or being sued by over 200 African-Americans for racial discrimination, they are busy covering for Democrats across the United States by not reporting on scandals.
Below are 24 recent Democratic sex scandals that CNN has failed to report on their website (documentation showing CNN did not cover the scandals is provided at the bottom of this report).
THIS STORY IS AT ONCE BOTH HEARTWARMING AND INFURIATING.
New Jersey Woman Raises More Than $200K for Homeless Man Who Bought Her Gasoline
Kate McClure, a 27-year-old from New Jersey, told the Inquirer that as she was traveling to Philadelphia to visit a friend, her car suddenly ran out of gasoline. McClure said she was nervous and scared, as the neighborhood where her car stopped was sketchy.
“My heart was beating out of my chest,” McClure said. “I didn’t know what the heck to do.”
After calling her boyfriend, 38-year-old Mark D’Amico, who promised to come get her, McClure said a homeless man named Johnny approached her car to help.
They learned he is Johnny Bobbitt Jr., 34, from the Raleigh, N.C., area. He was an ammunition technician in the Marines. His Facebook page includes photos and posts that trace a romantic relationship from its happier days to its 2014 breakup
According to McClure, Johnny — who takes care of two other men under a bridge in the area — told her to lock her car doors and that he would return.
Johnny told her to sit tight and that he would spend his last $20 to buy gas a few blocks away. “He said, ‘I’ll be back. Trust me,’” McClure told the Inquirer.
Ten minutes after speaking with McClure, Johnny returned with a gallon of gas that he had bought with his last $20.
Johnny told McClure that he is interested in working at the Robbinsville, New Jersey, Amazon warehouse so he can get health benefits and make a decent living.
Though McClure and D’Amico continued passing through to see Johnny in Philadelphia, they still felt they could do more. That is when they decided to fund raise to help change Johnny’s life, setting up a GoFundMe page that has far exceeded the $10,000 goal the couple originally set.
“He knows where he’s at and he knows what he has to do to dig himself out,” D’Amico told the Inquirer. “It’s almost impossible to dig himself out if he has nobody and nothing. If we can raise enough money to set him up for a few months, where he doesn’t have to worry about where he’s going to sleep and what he’s going to eat, then he can get a job and go about his life.”
A VETERAN, NOT UNLIKE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF OTHERS THAT HAVE FALLEN ON HARD TIMES AND ARE LARGELY IGNORED WHILE LIBERALS PISS AND MOAN ABOUT THE “RIGHTS” OF ILLEGALS WE SPEND $100 BILLION A YEAR TO PROVIDE A FREE RIDE TO WHILE THEY CONTRIBUTE NOTHING. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THE HOMELESS VETS, MANY WITH DRUG OR MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, NOT TO GET THE CARE THEY EARNED. OK, I’M DONE NOW.
Union Walmart protests fizzle as a Black Friday tradition
IT REALLY GALLS THE LIBERALS THAT THEY CAN’T BULLY WALMART EMPLOYEES INTO UNIONIZING SO THEY CAN GRAB ALL THAT DUES MONEY TO HELP ELECT DEMOCRATS… PITY.
Unions have stopped trying to use Walmart’s day-after-Thanksgiving ‘Black Friday’ sales to launch public relations blitzes against the corporation, effectively conceding that the once-high profile efforts were making little headway toward organizing a union at the nation’s largest employer
Ritter said the union had determined that Black Friday — traditionally the kick-off of Christmas shopping season and a major event for retailers — was no longer as big of an event due to the growth of online sales.
‘Black Liberation’ Group Vows To Shut Down Black Friday Shopping To Fight Racism
ANOTHER REASON TO SHOP ONLINE.
Black Liberation Front-Seattle, an “assertive” group aimed at fighting racism, also launched a four-hour demonstration called “BlackLivesMatterFriday 4.0 -Racism. It Stops With Me” to show the country that racism is unacceptable.
Approximately 10,000 people have marked “interested” on social media for this event, and over 1,000 people have said they plan on attending the Friday demonstration.
THERE ARE THOSE WHO WANT TO TEAR DOWN AND THOSE WHO WANT TO LIFT UP
‘Miracle Park’ to be built in Rock Hill will be designed specifically for people with special needs
The so-called Miracle Park is a dream of the York County Disabilities Foundation. Last week, the foundation presented the idea to Rock Hill’s City Council, pushing the project forward.
The Miracle Park would sit on a 15-acre piece of land, partially on the current “Winthrop Park.” The land is owned by both the City of Rock Hill (7 acres) and Winthrop University (8 acres). City Council agreed to lease the land to the non-profit for $1 a year, so the Foundation could purse the Miracle Park.
“A miracle field is basically a field made of synthetic rubber so that people with disabilities and wheel chairs can play on these fields,” Norman said.

ONE WORD: MAGA!! (actually an acronym) [CtH: I think it’s an acronym that has become a word, though I dunno if any dictionaries have accepted it! Other words Trump has added to our lexicon: bigly and yuge. I’d like to include covfefe, but I have no idea how to pronounce it or what it actually means! LOL]
The Nebraska Public Service Commission approved the Keystone XL pipeline, removing the last regulatory hurdle for the oil project after years of former President Barack Obama’s blocking the pipeline’s approval.
President Donald Trump quickly reversed Obama’s decision after taking office. Trump has pursued an energy policy of “energy dominance,” which sought to undo burdensome energy regulations and open up America’s energy resources.
Student Who Stole A MAGA Hat Off Someone’s Head Faces Year In Jail
SUCKS TO BE YOU, SWEETIE.
UCR is letting people wear this shit on campus?” asked Macias in a video of the incident. “Make American Great Again, really? There were lynchings and genocide and mass deportations.…I fucking hate this country.… And I am not leaving.…We need to get rid of all ya’ll.”
When Vitale asked for his hat back, she said “F*** your freedom of speech boy, your freedom of speech is literally killing a lot of people out there, your hats like these that promote laws and legislation that literally kill and murder people of color.”
[CtH: Good luck getting this witch to cite a single example of a U.S. law that literally kills anyone. Betcha she demanded HER constitutional rights though. Hypocrite.]

‘CBS This Morning’ wants Oprah to fill in for fired Charlie Rose: report
“CBS This Morning” is reportedly “begging” Oprah Winfrey to fill in for former co-host Charlie Rose, who was fired from the network after sexual harassment allegations.
“They are begging Oprah to fill in,” a source told Page Six. “Not full time … But they are hoping she’ll do one day, two days, one hour, fill in ’til Christmas. Anything.”
“Unless you get a superstar [on the show], it’s always going to be, ‘Charlie’s missing,'” an insider told the publication.
Hillary Clinton: I Couldn’t Run A Real Change Campaign Because Of Obama
HOPE AND CHANGE! HOPE AND CHANGE! IT GOT MY SORRY ASS ELECTED TWICE
… I have high regard for the campaign that we put together, and all of the people who were working in it so hard. But I think it is fair to say that it was hard to break through. I’ve said a few times that this was the first reality TV campaign. My opponent was the first reality TV candidate, and I was, for better or worse, the candidate of reality. And I think it was a shortcoming of the campaign that the work that I’ve done my entire life. The passion I feel for helping people, the record that I have of doing just that never really could break through.
THE FACT I’M A LYING, GREEDY, CORRUPT SKANK WITHOUT ANY MORAL COMPASS WHATEVER, AND EVERYBODY KNEW IT, HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MY GETTING A GRADE ‘A’ BEATDOWN.
[CtH: I wonder when she’ll ever get tired of listening to her own whining. Never is a literal possibility, I suppose.]
[CtH: Give it another try? Better yet, RETIRE your old self and let the next generation take a turn. Sheesh.]

GOP Would Be ‘Much Better Off With The Dem’ Winning in Alabama -Matthew Dowd
OF COURSE, DOWD HAS ALWAYS HAS THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AT HEART.
“The worst possible outcome of the Alabama election for the Republicans is if the Republican wins … It hangs over them through the course of this. They’d be much better off with the Democrat.”
Take a listen. This is supposedly a ‘Republican’ strategist. OMG.
[CtH: Honestly, whenever I hear supposed Republicans talking out their Democrat asses, it makes me wonder what’s in those oppo files the Dems keep carefully locked away.]
O’Malley: Obama Devastated Democratic Party Like a ‘Bad Forest Fire’
Wednesday on ABC’s “Powerhouse Politics” podcast, 2016 Democratic presidential candidate and former Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-MD) said former President Barack Obama’s decision to set up Organizing for America rather than “infusing” his energy into the Democratic Party devastated the party on state and local levels like a “bad forest fire.”
Lock Up Lois Lerner
I’VE BEEN REPULSED BY THIS SNEERING HAG SINCE THE FIRST TIME SHE TESTIFIED BEFORE CONGRESS. SHE COMMITTED FELONIES AND ABUSED HER POWER WITH NO FEAR OF CONSEQUENCES BECAUSE SHE WAS DOING OBAMA’S BIDDING AND HE PROTECTED HER. THEN TRUMP APPOINTED A MILQUETOAST WHO PROCEEDED TO RECUSE HIMSELF FROM DOING HIS JOB.
Former IRS official Lois Lerner and her deputy are asking a federal court to keep their testimonies in the Tea Party targeting case private forever, over fear of death threats and potential harm to their families if the documents go public.
Only the lawless Lois Lerner would feel threatened by legal proceedings initiated by her abuse of government power. Calling her and her IRS co-conspirators “criminal thugs” is not a threat but an understatement. What she fears is not violence but that the truth about her crimes, what she did and what she got away with, will be finally and fully known and that she would no longer be able to hide behind a bogus and fraudulent Fifth Amendment pleading before Congress.

Some honesty from the Left
The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case that could result in “Right to Work” applying to public sector employees, possibly resulting in no mandatory dues payments to public sector unions.
Democrats would have us believe that their support for unions (which includes opposition to “Right to Work” laws) is All About Workers’ Rights. ThinkProgress Justice Editor Ian Millhiser reveals the Democrats’ real agenda in this surprisingly honest tweet.
(Maybe he should have read it more carefully before hitting SEND?)

May Day 2017
May 1 doesn’t hold a great deal of significance except to communists and socialists. I just used the title because it was handy.
Chicago Teachers Union Encouraging Teachers to Cut Class, Attend May Day Marches
But they really care about the kids…
While the Chicago Teachers Union isn’t calling for an illegal strike on Monday, as it threatened to do, it is asking that its members attend that afternoon’s Chicago May Day march, activities surrounding it begin with school rallies at 7:30am.
The CTU we all know are “for the kids,” but how can they be for those kids when they are rabble-rousing on May 1? Yes, May Day 2017 is a school day.
Congress agrees on $1 trillion deal to fund government until October 1
SCHUMER CALLS IT A GOOD DEAL… THAT’S A REAL BAD SIGN
The hard-won deal could be the first major piece of bipartisan legislation to be pushed through Congress since President Trump took office, and would provide billions of dollars for the Pentagon — but would not provide funds for his ballyhooed Mexican wall.
The deal, if passed by the full House and Senate, would also keep funding for Planned Parenthood through September and add $2 billion to the National Institutes of Health, as well as providing extra cash for opioid treatment and college grants.
“This agreement is a good agreement for the American people and takes the threat of a government shutdown off the table,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

ALL THE COMMENTERS NOTICED THE LIGHTNING SPEED WITH WHICH MSN POINTED OUT THE SHOOTER WAS WHITE AND THE VICTIMS WERE BLACK. IT’S THE ONLY TIME RACE IS THE LEAST BIT RELEVANT.
The gunman, identified as Peter Selis, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police described him as a white male who may have lived in one of the buildings, and said all of the victims were African American or Hispanic. Police said they did not know whether race was a factor in the attack.
Indicted Fmr Dem Rep. Corrine Brown Spent Campaign Cash After Primary Loss
Expensed $13,476 in petty cash, hotels, travel after electoral defeat
Brown and her chief of staff, Elias “Ronnie” Simmons, were indicted in July 2016 on 24 counts of fraud stemming from a sham foundation created by the former congresswoman.
More than $800,000 was deposited into Brown’s Virginia-based foundation, One Door for Education, which spent only $1,200 on charity.
Federal authorities found that Brown, Elias, and Carla Wiley, the foundation’s president, spent $200,000 of the group’s funds on luxury vacations, NFL tickets, plane tickets, car repairs, and lavish events.
President of The White House Correspondents’ Association Assures You That ‘We Are Not Fake News’
WHCA President, Jeff Mason, further stated “it is our job to report on facts and hold leaders accountable; that is who we are…”
So tell us, Mr. Mason, why didn’t you and your membership do your job for the past 8 years and chose instead to lie and cover-up for the lies and cover-ups of the corrupt Obama regime? You and your cohorts constantly push fake news.
“Comedian” Hasan Minaj Big Flop at White House Correspondents Dinner
When one thinks of insult comics, the late funnyman Don Rickles immediately comes to mind.
[Rickles’] humor is so rude, in such bad taste, that it offends no one—it is too offensive to be offensive.
Contrast Minaj’s material to that of Rickles, who only on occasion would make a slighting remark about a fellow entertainer or politician in absentia. Minaj apparently stuck to shopworn jabs prepared long before the President and his staff announced they would not attend this year’s dinner. “
Unlike Rickles, Minaj is no “Mr. Warmth.” At least based on audience reaction, his dragging, staccato-like delivery left many barbs hanging in midair, leaving listeners wondering when they would drop. And to make matters worse, by taking multiple shots at non-attendees, both living and dead, Minaj’s quips quickly veered off into the offensive. This became most evident when the comedian evoked none other than Rickles himself, who died just over three weeks ago:
“Don Rickles died just so you wouldn’t ask him to do this gig, alright? RIP to Don Rickles, the only Donald with skin thick enough to take a joke like that.”

Samantha Bee is a “Smug Liberal” Denier
I STUMBLED ACROSS THIS TRASH WHILE CHANNEL SURFING ONCE. TOOK ALL OF FOUR SECONDS TO FIGURE OUT ‘BEE’ WAS SHORT FOR BEE-OTCH.
“I do the show for me and for people like me, and I don’t really care how others see it, quite frankly…. We need catharsis, a place to analyze things in a different way. we see things through a different filter. We just need to break it down.”
That lack of ability to consider another point of view could explain her answer to the question, “Is there a smug liberal problem?”
“I don’t think there is.”

So much news!
I was adding these to the comments section of Pete’s 2/16 post, but it’s gotten too long and is taking forever to refresh. So, starting with what I posted after midnight …
Highlights from Trump’s presser.
WOW!! The IRS will no longer require that people prove they have health insurance!
Third arrest resulting from Project Veritas undercover expose of group planning to disrupt inauguration day.
“Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions today asking Sessions to consider convening a grand jury or bringing charges against Hillary Clinton’s former IT guy, Bryan Pagliano. Pagliano was subpoenaed to testify before the committee last year but refused to appear on two occasions. After the second refusal, the Oversight Committee voted to hold Pagliano in contempt.”
This is why the big unions and their Democrat lapdogs fight so hard against Right to Work laws. The unions have become the evil they were originally founded to combat and workers know it.
Weeks after the House Minority leader blasted President Donald Trump for pledging to investigate voter fraud, a federal appellate court has ruled that a Peruvian immigrant can be deported from the U.S. for illegally voting in a federal election.
