Thursday Night's ONT has Taken Off Its Considering Cap

—WeirdDave

What does that even mean? Has Dave been drinking again? Well, no, but that's exactly what it means. Benjamin Franklin compiled a list of terms for being drunk. I like antiquated words. I always promise myself that I'll start using them, but I rarely do. For example, this is a word that I personally would use a lot, if I remembered it:

More good ones here and here.

Blue Wave Receding? New Marist Poll Shows Democratic Advantage in Congressional Midterms Plummeting

—Ace

It had reached a high of +13, but now it's fallen to about half that, +6.

Wait until the Democrats shut down the American government to keep foreigners illegally in-country.

And the economy's still heating up. It hasn't hit top heat yet.

So maybe the Democrats should stop s***ing each other's d***s.

Nah. It's what they love.

Thursday's poll found more welcome news for Republicans among registered voters who identify as Independents.

Among those voters, Republicans led by 2 points, with 38 percent of those voters saying they’d vote for the GOP candidate, while 36 percent said the Democratic candidate. In December, polling found that Democrats were leading among Independent voters by 11 points.

Ed Morrissey points out that Democrats also tend to underperform their polls in midterm elections.

The blue wave might be a wash-out.

Luke Rozniak: Pakistani IT Aides Made Unauthorized Access Into Congressional Servers in 2016, Accessing Information from Other Congressmen, and Covering Their Tracks

—Ace

Nothing to see here.

House investigators concluded that Democratic IT aides made unauthorized access to congressional servers in 2016, allegedly accessing the data of members for whom they did not work, logging in as members of Congress themselves, and covering their tracks, according to a presentation summarizing the findings of a four-month internal probe.

Their behavior mirrored a "classic method for insiders to exfiltrate data from an organization," and they continued even after orders to stop, the briefing materials allege. There are indications that numerous members' data may have been secretly residing not on their designated servers, but instead aggregated onto one server, according to the briefing and other sources. Authorities said that the entire server was then physically stolen.

When acting on the findings, Democratic leadership appear to have misrepresented the issue to their own members as solely a matter of theft, a comparison of the investigators' findings with Democrats' recollections and a committee's public statement shows, leading 44 Democrats to not conduct protective measures typically taken after a breach -- including informing constituents whose personal information may have been exposed.

The presentation, written by the House's Office of the Inspector General, reported under the bold heading "UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS" that "5 shared employee system administrators have collectively logged into 15 member offices and the Democratic Caucus although they were not employed by the offices they accessed."

It found indications that a House "server is being used for nefarious purposes and elevated the risk that individuals could be reading and/or removing information" and "could be used to store documents taken from other offices." The server was that of the House Democratic Caucus, a sister group of the DNC that was run at the time by then-Rep. Xavier Becerra.

Democrats Have the Votes to Shut Down Government

—Ace

The media is already downplaying this -- and claiming it's really Republicans' fault, anyway.

The possibility of a government shutdown grew dramatically Thursday as House and Senate GOP leaders struggled to round up the votes to keep the government open past midnight Friday...

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) appears to have a serious problem.

Senate Democrats said they're confident they have the votes to block the stop-gap spending bill that the House is taking up, according to two Democratic senators and a senior party aide. And top Senate Republicans are openly worried about the situation as they struggle to keep their own members in the fold.

Democrats are about to shut down the government over a policy dispute -- something they portrayed as a cataclysmic threat to America's stability when Republicans did the same in 2014 -- and it's Mitch McConnell who has the problem? He has to appease the Democrats?

Funny, the media didn't seem to think it was the Democrats' duty to repeal Obamacare as Republicans wanted in 2014.

Why the flip-flop, media?

Related thoughts from John Sexton, who questions Politico's framing in the same way I do. But i'm not copying, honest! -- This post has been in draft for hours.

By the way, the House Freedom Caucus is now attempting their own gamesmaship in the House, saying they won't vote for the CR on the House side unless all of the FISA Abuse report is made public.

Democrats, of course, are blocking that, while at the same time claiming they want "transparency."

BTW: This report has now been cleared for reading by all Congressmen. As Byron York suggests, this is probably a step towards making it publicly available.

One way or the other -- now that it's in 535 people's hands, plus their staff members cleared to read it, it's very very leakable.

And I hear it's gonna be a doozy.

Soft Putty-like Sub-Man Chris Cilliza Snarks At Trump's Lack of Exercise

—Ace

Bro, do you even lift?

Don't avoid the question, bro. Do. You. Even. Lift?

Ah, I'm just kidding, Big Guy. I know you don't lift.

By the way, John King, the newsreader for the video report (available at CNN's clickbait site), sure appears to be a... a very stout fellow, let us say.

He doesn't resemble the sort of ruffian who would be so ungallant to reject the advances of a young, comely donut.

Anyway, it's just remarkable to see CNN men (evidence needed) in their 30s goofing on a guy in his 70s for... you know, being as chubby and inactive as they are.

I think Chris Cilliza and Brian Stelter and assorted other fatties have decided that opening the freezer and pulling out a tub of Haagen-Dasz ice cream constitutes a standing horizontal row.

And from the Free Beacon: Let's compare the media's conspiracy theories about Trump's health -- which they themselves acknowledge as "Girtherism" -- to their extreme defensiveness about any questions concerning Hillary Clinton's.

The obese Brian Stelter plays a starring role here, both ginning up Girther conspiracy theories as well as declaring all questions about Hillary "Had a Seizure, Lost a Shoe" Clinton's health to be "talk radio" conspiracy theories.

Yesterday, CNN Opened a Whole New Field of #FakeNews: Fake Remote Medical Diagnosis

—Ace

Yesterday CNN, a degenerate den of #FakeNews addicts who can't stop sucking the pipe, claimed that Trump definitely had heart disease based on a guideline that "some" cardiologists use to predict future heart disease.

It was typical CNN.

[O]on Wednesday morning Gupta, who did not examine Trump, took Jackson’s data and declared that Trump has heart disease, prompting instant ridicule from people on both sides of the political aisle.


"This is math. This is based on the numbers that Dr. Jackson provided," Gupta said. "The president has heart disease."

After being ridiculed for his remote diagnosis based on a guideline that "some" cardiologists use (why didn't he tell us about the ones that don't use it, and their reasons for not using it?), he seemed to walk this dramatic TV-friendly clickbait claim back into something less juicy.

Gupta eventually followed up his on-air report by doubling down with an article on CNN's website.

"Like most men of his age, President Donald Trump has a common form of heart disease, relatively easy to address if he increases the dose of his cholesterol-lowering medication and makes necessary lifestyle changes," he wrote.

Peter J. Hanson fact-checked Gupta's claims (Note: Gupta is a neurosurgeon, not a cardiologist, and should probably avoid attempting to overrule someone's personal doctor using a fairly esoteric test).

Diagnosis: #FakeNews.

Using the results of Trump’s medical exam from Dr. Jackson, The Daily Caller calculated Trump's risk of heart attack or similar heart disease. According to that algorithm, Trump’s risk from heart attack or other coronary heart disease is just 4.1 percent each year for the next 10 years. (Feel free to replicate our results here.)

Additionally, Trump’s coronary calcium score of 133 is lower than the mean for men his age, according to MESA, making Trump’s score a sign of above average heart health.

CNN’s coverage left out those details and cast doubt on Jackson’s confidence in Trump's heart health. The network instead painted a picture where Trump's heart health is of serious concern.

CNN "New Day" host Alisyn Camerota described Trump’s heart health as "troubling" on Wednesday morning. "The president has heart disease. Those numbers qualify him for having heart disease," Gupta agreed, adding that he, too, finds it "concerning."

Trump's better-than-average-for-his-age plaque level? Deeply troubling.

This? Not troubling at all.

Apple Says It Will Repatriate $250 Billion to US in Next Five Years, Add 20,000 Jobs in the US

—Ace

Actually, they say they'll be "contributing" $350 billion ($100 billion more than the $250 billion they have in foreign accounts) to America. They might be talking about another $100 billion in capital investments in the US, plus the impact of adding 20,000 jobs. They might also be contemplating direct donations to charitable causes or starting their own charitable foundation, as some companies have done in the wake of tax reform.

Not sure how they come to that particular $350 billion figure.

But anyway, they're bringing practically all their offshore money into the US, and will wind up paying $38 billion in taxes (to America) for that privilege.

Cops Raid #FakeNews Clickbait Webzine Newsweek?

—Ace

So claims an site called TheOutline.com, which I've read occasionally for opinion. I don't know how strong their reportage side is.

More than a dozen police showed up this morning at the office that serves as the shared headquarters for Newsweek magazine and IBT Media, which rebranded in 2017 as Newsweek Group, according to multiple sources who were present.

The reason for the visit was not clear, but one employee said police were taking photos of the company's servers...

The NYPD said the officers weren't theirs. The Manhattan DA declined to comment, the article says.

By the way, "News"week put out a clickbait article claiming that, based on a claim that Trump takes some medication for his hair, that means he might, maybe, possibly be impotent.

Yup.

Here's what an insider at "News"week has to say about what "News"week has become:



Oh, I forgot, they published this, too.



It's just embarrassing.

And... Newsweek was also the proud originator of yesterday's absurd clickbait claim that noted cuck David French "said" that we shouldn't fear a nuclear strike, because it would only kill minorities and Democrats.

Senior Policy Adviser to Senator Patty Murray: "This Office Does Not Care About Anti-Semitism"

—Ace

I'm totes surprised to see the left accommodating itself to the rampant antisemitism found in third world shitholes.

Elizabeth Harrington for the Free Beacon:

A senior policy adviser to Democratic senator Patty Murray (Wash.) said her office in the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions does "not care about anti-Semitism," according to two people who attended the meeting.

The HELP committee is currently weighing the nomination of Ken Marcus as assistant secretary for civil rights at the Department of Education. Marcus has been the target of an aggressive campaign waged by leading anti-Israel groups seeking to derail his nomination. Marcus has worked to combat the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement on college campuses and is the founder of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, a pro-Israel group.

During a meeting on November 28 with Sarah N. Stern, a former colleague of Marcus and president of the Endowment for Middle East Truth, a senior adviser to Murray on the HELP committee told Stern the committee does not "care about anti-Semitism in this office."

"We don't care about anti-Semitism in this office," Murray's senior adviser said. "We care about transgenders, we care about blacks, we care about Hispanics, we care about gays, we care about lesbians, we care about the disabled."

"We don't care about anti-Semitism in this office," he said.

Of Course: Hillary Clinton Hatchet-Man Sydney Blumenthal Was "Interviewed," For Some Reason, by the FBI In Connection With the Fake "Steele" Dossier

—Ace

What if it wasn't the Steele Dossier? What if it was the Blumenthal Dossier with Steele's name on it to make it stink less of self-interest?

Pure speculation on my part. But Blumenthal was being paid $10,000 per month by the Clinton Foundation as a "consultant" -- including running a "private intelligence network" along with a former CIA officer named Drumheller.

I'd like to know why, exactly, the FBI thought they needed to interview Sidney Blumenthal about this dossier which I'm sure he had nothing to do with.

Sidney Blumenthal, a former journalist and a close friend of Clinton, was interviewed by the FBI in 2016 regarding the dossier that alleged Trump colluded with Russia, the sources stated. Department of Justice officials, however, declined to comment on Blumenthal or the dossier.

FBI officials declined to comment.

Blumenthal did not return a phone call seeking comment.

And "Sid Vicious" was one of the most ferociously conspiratorial of the Clinton partisans:

After the 2016 presidential election, Blumenthal told Dutch TV Nieuwsuur that Clinton's loss to Trump "was the result of a cabal of right-wing agents of the FBI in the New York office attached to Rudy Giuliani, who was a member of Trump's campaign."

"I think it's not unfair to call it a coup," said Blumenthal.

"A coup, even?" the reporter said.

Blumenthal added, "yeah, a coup d'etat."

A theory is starting to form in my head: Hillary's team cooked up the Dossier and attempted to get an FBI file opened on Trump after the email investigation into Hillary began -- so that she could say "It's not just me being investigated, it's both of us. You mean, wipe with the cloth?"

And of course Comey's FBI went along.

The Morning Report 1/18/18

—J.J. Sefton

dickydreams.jpg

Good morning kids. Thursday finds us with a wealth of linkages so let's get right into it. First thing that caught my eye is investigators in Las Vegas have now announced that they now have other possible suspects under investigation in last year's Mandalay Bay mass shooting massacre. This whole thing has smelled wrong from the outset and seemingly disappeared from the headlines almost overnight. Wherever this leads, it needs to be in the cold light of day for all the world to see. The top echelons of the Federal Law Enforcement and National Security communities' collective reputation is in the toilet as it is, and it does not need to be saddled with being rightly suspected of yet another coverup.

Moving right along, we have several links covering the intertwined issues of the budget, government shutdown shit-show and DACA/Amnesty. On the political front, I think the President has painted the Democrats into a corner. First, their base and even many of their foot soldiers in Congress oppose Trump no matter what and want nothing to do that gives him a win. Yet to sideline DACA would enrage the already unhinged base and so the Party leadership has said no budget without DACA and, despite their claims to the contrary, will be seen to be responsible for any government shutdown (the fact that very little really shuts down as we all know) in the eyes of the public. Plus, PDT will no doubt make a big deal out of the fact that the Democrats would rather place foreigners here illegally over that of American citizens, especially the military who I understand will feel the bite of a shutdown in their wallets. Military Morons please weigh in on this.

And in related news, we have the story of an illegal alien fiend on trial for murdering two California cops, pulling a Cory Booker in court and boasting he'll escape and kill more. Remember, Dick Les "Dicky" Durbin himself has said that his number one mission in Congress is to protect illegal aliens. To Dicky's point, naturally, we cannot lump all the wonderful DREAMers in with this bastard. But, Dicky, you must remember; if repatriating all 800,000 of them saves even ONE life...

Meanwhile, a key staffer for Democrat "Peppermint" Patty Murray is totes fine with anti-semitism so long as it keeps a filthy "Yahood" Trump nominee from becoming an assistant secretary at the Dept. of Education. The Democrat Joo-hate freak-flag is flying in the breeze, as we have seen all during the Obama Reign of Error, and continues to do so. In somewhat related news, the Holocaust-denying head of "partner for peace" Palestinians, Mahmoud Abbas went on a rabid, even for him, tirade against Trump (who I hear has now delayed the Jerusalem embassy move), Joos, Israel and even demanded reparations from the Brits because of the Balfour Declaration. If the "peace process" isn't officially dead (it never really was alive), then it's not at all well. There are the shots, and here's the chaser: Mentally-ill traitor Manning has won the endorsement for Senator from Maryland from Linda Sarsour, the Hamas Louse. Yay.

From hither and yon, we have a court-ordered redrawing of the voting districts in North Carolina that will be in effect before the midterms, several essays about the roaring economy and how the Media will attempt to gaslight America into thinking we're in a Trump-caused Depression, another secret deal between Obama and the Farsis has been revealed.

Lastly, the Fake News Awards, the Fakies, were presented last night and congratulations to pirate radio station CNN. Well done, thumbs.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

UPDATE: Link to Iran Deal fixed.

Trump's Basic Instincts About the Political War Are Essentially Right, and The Establishment's Sense of It Is Essentially Wrong

—Ace

Very good piece by Joe Katzman for the Daily Caller.

Short version: The right attempts political persuasion. The left, on the other hand, attempts social persuasion -- basically seizing the commanding heights of culture-making institutions and then deciding that espousing some political claims (being pro-gay-marriage) increase social status and that espousing other political claims (being against gay marriage) decrease social status and, indeed, make one a social pariah, fit for ostracism, mass mockery, and internal exile.

The left's method works much better than the right's. It always has and it always will. Because most people don't care about politics all that much -- but nearly everyone (except for the crankiest of contrarians, including some of the current assembled company) cares about their social status.

Having higher social status gets you invites to the Cocktail Party Circuit, which is a real thing, defined broadly (and metaphorically) enough. It makes you datable, it makes you "clubbable," as the old term went.

It can get you promoted at work, particularly if the sort of job you do is a bit vague as far as definite, tangible outputs and thus advancement depends more on how upper management feels about you.

While the left wing continues winning arguments by not even having arguments at all, instead simply demonizing those who espouse any contrary position, the #SmartSet (citation required) of the establishment right continues believing, apparently earnestly and definitely ridiculously, that if they just out argue their political competitors, they'll change minds.

They won't. Or not enough to actually matter. Because most people don't really care enough about these issues to really engage with them on an intellectual level; they just want to know what to claim to believe so that other people won't think they're weird, and deem them unfriendable, undatable, and poor candidates for promotion inside The Corporation.

Trump's manner of engaging with The Blob of left-wing virtue-signalling and status-conferring is to attempt to degrade the left wing cultural Borg of its own social status, thereby reducing its ability to set tastes, serve as "gatekeepers" of what the right-minded people agree are proper attitudes and beliefs, and demonize dissenters.

This is often ugly -- but that's how the sausage gets made. It does not matter if you produce a well-researched and well-cited bit of argument as to your position if the cultural princelings of the left can simply say "You're a Nazi and you hate women" and thereby, with seven stupid words, raze not only your argument but your entire claim to basic human dignity.

The only way to rob them of that ability is to reduce their own social status to a low level. You cannot confer or reduce social status unless you yourself have a great deal of it.

There's another aspect to this as well: Part of the reason some on the "Reputable Right" continue to act as confirmatory agents of the cultural left's social status. That is, they themselves act as if the cultural left's doyennes are indeed owed deference and do in fact possess high status, and do indeed therefore enjoy the lordly privilege of elevating, or degrading, the social status of those lower in the social hierarchy.

It is, of course, an age-old right of the nobility to confer (lesser) noble status on a commoner -- raising him to a baronet, say -- or to strip a lower-ranking noble of his status.

The establishment right/the self-claimed #SmartSet continues to act as if the cultural left has this lordly power because the lords of the left return the favor in a small way, permitting those on the nominal right who salute the flag of the left to at least attend their courts and hold on to the meager privileges of very low-level nobility.

They're sub-nobles, but at least the lords have recognized their superiority over the commoners and peasants.

Thus, this is a relationship that benefits both the Lords of the Left and its minor courtiers of the right: The minor courtiers of the right reify and confirm the exalted position of the Lords of the Left, while the Lords of the Left confer a small amount of social status on the establishment/liberal-leaning/#SmartSet right. Not a lot of social status, of course-- just enough to say they're better than the rest of the riff-raff.

Just enough that the petty nobles of the subjugated right can call themselves "respectable" in their Lords' eyes.

There is only one way to change this entirely-unacceptable arrangement: that is for the right to greatly increase the social status of at least some cadres of the right, so that some members of the right will themselves have the lordly power to raise and reduce social status.

But that seems almost impossible, and, furthermore, I don't think the right can really agree on which cadre to elevate to lordly status. And of course no one has more social status than the majority of the public agrees they have; who would be convinced if tomorrow most of the right-wing agreed mutually that, say, Brit Hume ought to be considered a National Lord?

The other alternative is, of course, to destroy (or degrade) the social status of the Lords of the Left. That's also hard, but it's easier to destroy than to create.

This involves a lot of base mockery and ridicule, something that the petty nobles of the liberal-leaning nominal right find horrifying when a right-winger does it, but don't seem to notice or at least care that their masters, the Lords of the Left, do nothing but this.

As they do it to other members of the right, not the eager courtiers seeking the blessings of the Lords of the Left, the petty nobility of the right permits it, and even engages in it themselves, to further ingratiate themselves with the courtly class.

The hell with that. It's time for pitchforks and torches.

A shorter way to say this is just to quote Andrew Breitbart: "Politics is downstream of culture."

Breitbart attempted that -- he did not act like a Pet Petty Noble for the true ruling class; rather, he challenged them and humiliated them -- and for that he was savaged by the defenders of the Lords of the Left, like David Frum, who just wouldn't know what to do with himself if the ruling class withdrew his "tolerated" status from him.

12-Year-Old Goth Girl "Sassy Jim" Acosta Has Another Emotional Outburst

—Ace

Two of them, actually.

In both cases, he claimed This Is Not America Any Longer.

In one instance, White House aides apparently talked over him for ten seconds to deny him a grandstanding moment of shouting an impertinent question to the president in a joint appearance with a foreign leader for which it had already been stated that Trump would not be taking questions.

Sassy Jim Acosta wrote a meangirl entry in his daily diary he calls Twitter:



Video of this outrage under the fold.

That was Sassy Jim's second cry-up yesterday.

His first was about, of course, immigration.

Goth Girls like poetry (like the Emily Lazarus poem, for example).


As many have asked: Did CNN do any stories about the Human Face of Deportation about Obama? Remember, the leftist media attempted to shield Obama from criticism over his poor record of border security by repeatedly echoing the administration propaganda line that Obama had deported more people than any president in history. Obama's pro-illegal allies even helpfully named him the "Deporter in Chief," so he could take that to market and pose as a border hawk.

If that was true, and the media sure acted as if it was, why were there no stories about all the wonderful illegal aliens being deported under Obama?

The answers are either 1, because the media knew that claim was a propagandistic lie and/or 2, because the media doesn't report negatively about partisan progressive politicians, especially not about Prince Gaylord Urkel.

And -- and I don't wanna cause that kinda pain to somebody else. But I can say that I -- because you're asking me a very direct question -- I can say that I would be surprised if -- if -- many women did not understand that there was a climate of verbal harassment -- that existed. I think it'd be surprising if someone said that they didn't see that. So it was p -- a verbal -- sexual --

Health Truthers: Media Pushing Conspiracy Theories to Prove Trump Is Deathly Ill and Also Insane

—Ace

Maggie Haberman, height/BMI truther:



Apparently the Neo-Autistics in the media don't understand that most people are not exactly an integer height in inches, and many are in the middle of two integer heights, and will sometimes write down one and sometimes the other.

At CNN, they just can't accept the White House doctor's conclusion that Trump has a healthy heart. (They also think that people only have heights in perfect integer steps.)

So, they're now ignoring their usual mantra of "trust the experts" and calling in Alternative Fact experts to declare that Trump actually has heart disease.

Here's a supercut of the press corpse (I did that on purpose) asking Trump's doctor twenty two times if he is crazy or demented.

CNN, and maybe Hot Air too, is playing Cognitive Acuity Truther by goofing on the cognitive function test that Trump got a 30 out of 30 on. I guess the joke is "Look how easy this is."

Well, let me explain this, idiots: Of course it's easy. It's not an IQ test. It's a test to determine if someone has a defect in brain function. So anyone without a defect in brain function will find it easy.

But, of course, the left (and many on the nominal #SalonHot25 right) have been claiming that Trump does indeed have a brain defect -- so yes, passing this easy (for those with normal-functioning brains) test does indeed refute that.

So I guess goalposts are now shifting to a different claim, that Trump may not be cognitively impaired, but he's still plenty dumb.

Well, there is no 25th Amendment procedure for removing a president that you think is too dumb.

Sorry, Health Truthers. Try again.

Here's a good question:



Remember when questioning whether Hillary Clinton had some kind of motor coordination/brain function problem got you branded a crazy conspiracist?


My, how times have changed.

Inland Part of California Wants to Split Off from Coastal Progressive Power Centers and Form New, More Conservative State

Come on, fellas. You know you want it.

Anyway, baby steps:

With the reading of their own version of a Declaration of Independence, founders of the state of New California took the first steps to what they hope will eventually lead to statehood.

To be clear, they don't want to leave the United States, just California.

"Well, it's been ungovernable for a long time. High taxes, education, you name it, and we're rated around 48th or 50th from a business climate and standpoint in California," said founder Robert Paul Preston.

The state of New California would incorporate most of the state's rural counties, leaving the urban coastal counties to the current state of California.

"Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs."

We need a 21st Century Charles Napier to send a clear and unambiguous message to the world that anti-Western, anti-human behavior will not be tolerated in the West. And the gates to America must close to anyone who would bring this primitive behavior to our shores.

The Morning Report 1/17/18

—J.J. Sefton

thisiswhy.jpg

Good morning kids. Midweek has arrived and center stage is the debate on immigration and the future of our national identity as well as the disgusting and transparent diversion put up by the left in an attempt to disguise their policy of cultural destruction via open borders from being exposed for everyone to see. In that vein, we have a number of links that touch on what's at stake. Three of them lay out the evidence; a majority of the so-called DREAMer kids commit double the crimes as citizens their age, three fourths of those incarcerated on terrorism-related charges are foreign born and one of Obama's "ubermenschen" sacred visa lottery winners was asking ISIS for permission to kill him. An act of love, no doubt.

On the political front, Tom Cotton amongst others including, thankfully, President Trump are telling the Democrats to take their deal and shove it straight up their "s" holes. And the Democrats are still threatening a government shutdown over this, which plays directly into the President's hands. For the first time that I can recall, the blame will fall squarely on them for the shutdown, despite the expected Media-Propaganda wing of the party informing us otherwise. Just like they're telling us that the economy is in the tank and that Trump is in fact a racist.

That said, polls indicate that black Americans ain't buying the Trump is a racist lie. They are probably witnessing and experiencing an employment boom and, as I linked yesterday, it is scaring the living daylights out of the Left. They know that if they lose a percentage of that voting bloc, it would be disastrous for them. And that is one of the key reasons they want open borders; to import a mass of voters to replace they ones whom they have aborted, imprisoned or destroyed through their compassionate programs like the Great Society. Their political power depends upon poverty and disenfranchisement, whether naturally occurring or as evidenced by the past 50 years pre-manufactured. I think we are potentially on the cusp of a great black American awakening to this. And were that the case, there would be no stronger ally we can have in the sealing of our borders and the road back to the resurrection of our society, please G-d.

The boss had a post yesterday on the puerile, amateurish display of Cory Booker. It really did border on if not cross the line into straight-up abuse of DHS Secretary Kristjen Nielsen, who was poised, professional, confident and made Dick Les "Dicky" Durbin look like a fool, or that is to say, highlighted his foolishness. And what the hell is with Pat Leahy? His marble-mouthed muttering makes Thad Cochran come across as Lord Olivier. That said, every word pushed out between his halitosis-tinged dentures sounded like it was written out for him, and ages ago from the typical Democrat talking point play book. They have nothing. The Trump agenda, even without a real party behind him, is blowing them out of the water and the meme of mass immigration is good for the nation is being exploded. Keep f**king that chicken, Dems.

From hither and yon, Fake Flake's Stalin insult aimed at Trump blew up in his face, Pencil Neck Schiff can no longer hold back the full release of Fusion GPS's head's testimony, the DoJ is going straight to SCOTUS to appeal the lower court's power grab in ordering PDT to continue DACA and lastly a great essay about why the Left will always be with us. I've touched on this many times before but as the late Momma Sefton always said, it boils down to this: "Evil never rests."

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

UPDATE: Please keep commenter Northernlurker in your prayers. He has just informed us that his wife passed away as this thread posted. Our deepest sympathy and condolences to you and family.

Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"My imagination has led me to look into the distant future, and there to contemplate the greatness of free America. I have beheld her walking on the waves of the mighty deep, carrying along with her tidings of great joy to distant nations. I have seen her overturning the strong places of despotism, and restoring to man his long-lost rights." John Tyler, 1832. 10th President of The United States of America
h/t Isophorone Blog@Isophorone

Quote II

Not far from where I’m writing this, the kosher butcher shop is long gone; across the street, the church that once stood tall is now boarded up.

But next to it stands a mosque newly built and freshly painted. English in the neighborhood is a foreign tongue and nobody knows Frank Sinatra.

The boys don’t play stickball. The girls in their veils don’t play hopscotch and all the cabs are driven by men from Somalia and Afghanistan.

Strangers are not greeted warmly.

That’s a snapshot of what troubles President Trump…not the mosque, but the culture shift,

Call him chauvinistic…call him profane…he doesn’t care. Jack Engelhard


Quote III


“The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race. The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/ America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & “charity for all.” Mitt Romney

King Pimp: Trump Banged a Porn Star

—Ace

The same people who told me that using an intern as a humidor was just good manners (and then lying about it under oath) now want me to get upset about this.

Oh, and guess who's got an interview with the porn star's friend (also a porn star)? That's right, would-be queen of tabloid trash Megyn "MeAgain" Kelly.


BTW, this allegation is about a year-long sexual affair, not about any kind of coerced sex or anything.

I couldn't possibly care less, even if you paid me to. You might say, "Here is one thousand dollars cash American if you can care less," and I'd reply, "I'd love that money, but honesty, I can't care less."

And you'd offer two thousand, and I'd say, "I can't take your money under false pretenses -- I just can't take your money to do what cannot be done."

Then you might offer five thousand, and I would take it, and tell you I would try my human best to care less, because, look, if you're determined to throw five thousand dollars at me, you win, Buddy.

But I'd be taking your money in exchange for nothing, because seriously, Bill Clinton raped one woman and sexually assaulted a woman who came to him for help.

Andrew Klavan: Two Cheers For Trump's Crudeness In the Face of Revolting Mind-Control

—Ace

Mind-control enforced on the pretext of "politeness" and "good manners," allegedly.

Actually I don't know if Klavan is awarding Trump just two cheers -- he might intend to award him all three.

No person of importance on the right seeks to silence anyone on the left. The Left, on the other hand, is broadly committed to ostracizing, blacklisting, and even criminalizing right-wing speech.

Enter President Donald Trump. He is a rude and crude person. He speaks like a Queens real estate guy on a construction site. And because he does not have good manners, he thoughtlessly breaks the rules with which the Left has sought to muzzle those who disagree with them. In this regard, I frequently compare Trump to Randle Patrick McMurphy, the loudmouthed, ill-mannered roustabout from Ken Kesey’s brilliant novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. McMurphy comes into an insane asylum controlled by a pleasant, smiling nightmare of a head nurse named Ratched. Nurse Ratched, while pretending to be the soul of motherly care, is actually a castrating, silencing tyrant. Her rules of good manners, supposedly fashioned for the benefit of all, are really a system of mental slavery. All of McMurphy’s salient character flaws suddenly become heroic in the context of her oppression. Only his belligerent ignorance of what constitutes good behavior can overturn the velvet strangulation of her rule.

For Nurse Ratched, read Hillary Clinton, CNN, the New York Times, Yale University, Twitter, and Google/YouTube--all the tender ministers of polite silence and enforced dishonesty. If Donald Trump's boorishness crashes like a bull through the crystal madhouse of their leftism--well, good. It's about time.

Turning to the insane "shithole" nontroversy, Klavan writes:

Let's state the obvious. Some countries are shitholes. To claim that this is racist is racist. They are not shitholes because of the color of the populace but because of bad ideas, corrupt governance, false religion, and broken culture. Further, most of the problems in these countries are generated at the top. Plenty of rank-and-file immigrants from such ruined venues ultimately make good Americans--witness those who came from 1840s potato-famine Ireland, a shithole if ever there was one! It takes caution and skill to separate the good from the bad.

For these very reasons, absurd immigration procedures like chain migration, lotteries, and unvetted entries are deeply destructive. They can lead to the sort of poor choices that create a Rotherham. Trump's suggestions--to vet immigrants for pro-American ideas and skills that will help our country--are smart and reasonable and would clearly make the system better if implemented.

So, when it comes to the Great Shithole Controversy of 2018, my feeling is: I do not care, not even a little.

Other people have pointed this out, but Trump is saying: We should pick immigrants according to our needs.

The left is fighting this claiming that it is immoral to think about ourselves; we must think only of the immigrants' plight.

But why are they in a "plight" at all? What would be immoral about just leaving them where they are now?

Because, of course, they live in shitholes. That's what the left puts forth to change this argument from one of rational self-interest (pick immigrants and number of immigrants according to our own changing needs) to one of absolute moral imperative -- we must let them in because to leave them in their current countries would be cruel and inhuman.

There's only one kind of place it would be cruel to leave someone -- that's right, a shithole.

So they can choose between screaming that we are morally obligated to lift immigrants out of their shitholes, or they can scream that it's a travesty to call these countries shitholes, but they can't do both.

Their entire spittle-flinging, tearing-eyed, red-faced moral meltdown relies foundationally on the idea that these people live in shitholes and only a monster would condemn someone to continue living in such states of abject shitholery.

So it cannot be any kind of foul to acknowledge that.

Press In Feeding Frenzy Over President's Health, Demanding to Know if Trump is Demented and Demanding to Know What His Life Expectancy Might Be

—Ace

The press had two questions in mind:

1. Can we remove him for unfitness via the 25th Amendment?

and,

2. If not, when's he gonna die already?!

This is journalism.


Updates: They asked Trump's real doctor to comment on his fake psychiatrists' diagnoses, they asked if he watched TV too much -- this question was seriously asked by a group of people who Tweet about TV all day -- and a fat guy is now asking if Trump should exercise more.

This is amazing.

Cory Booker: T-Bone Told Me I Should Take This Opportunity to Announce I'm Running for President

—Ace

I guess he doesn't like the attention Oprah's getting.

Pat Leahy asked DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielson if Trump used the words "shithole countries' in that DACA negotiation Dick Durbin deliberately blew up so he could run on the issue.

She said she didn't remember him using those words.

Corey Booker, who supported a candidate for president last year who spent 30 years in public life not remembering things, now goes into Heroic Spazz mode with lots of eye-bulging and lisping.

Ay. But of course.

Meanwhile, Bannon is testifying before the House Intelligence Committee today, behind closed doors, where he'll probably be asked why he said that about the Russians, and why he said the heart of the Mueller probe would be "money laundering."

Jeff Flake: Trump Is Kind of Like Josef Stalin in Banning Press Freedoms

—Ace

A strong conservative voice, other strong conservative voices tell us.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said Sunday he would compare President Trump to Soviet Union dictator Joseph Stalin when it comes to press freedom in a series of speeches he plans to make this week.

Flake argued that Trump was using the same tactics that Stalin did to de-legitimize the press.


"When you reflexively refer to the press as the 'enemy of the people' or 'fake news,' that has real damage. It has real damage to our standing in the world. And I noted how — how bad it is for a president to take [the phrase that] was popularized by Joseph Stalin, 'the enemy of the people,' to refer to the press," Flake, one of Trump's most persistent Republican critics, told ABC News Sunday.

In an excerpt of the planned speech, Flake said, "It bears noting that so fraught with malice was the phrase 'enemy of the people' that even Nikita Khrushchev [Stalin's successor as leader of the Soviet Union] forbade its use. And of course, the president has it precisely backward. Despotism is the enemy of the people, the free press is the despot's enemy."

What a c***.

The Morning Rant

—OregonMuse

talking ape.jpg"So help a poor gorilla out here, why was Trump's labelling some 3rd world shithole countries as 'shitholes' objectionable? Was it because they're really not shitholes, but happy, prosperous countries where everybody is doing fine, or is it that it's racist to call a shithole country a shithole even though it may very well be a shithole that happens to have a lot of brown people in it, or is it because they're actually shitholes but it's not polite to call them shitholes? Or perhaps the Democrats are just objecting to Trump's vulgarity. Which, of course, would be pretty damn funny coming from the party of Bill Clinton, Anthony Weiner, and Al Franken."

The Morning Report 1/16/18

—J.J. Sefton

MLKjrDutt.jpg

Good morning kids. First up is the continued fallout over DACA and Amnesty, primarily as regarding the immediate political ramifications of same. As the "shithole" controversy continue to swirl, it IMHO both obfuscates as well as underscores both the lethal effects of unchained migration on the nation as well as the President's positions and style. Despite his billions, Donald Trump is essentially a plain speaking blue collar guy from Queens. He tells it like it is, whether or not as "Dicky" Durbin claims he hurled an epithet at Haiti and the other countries in question.

No matter, the Dems think they are going to both be able to stick Trump and the GOP with the blame for a government shutdown over DACA as well as use it to ride to victory in the midterms and beyond. My gut is they are sadly (for them) mistaken.

In other news, Rush went on an extended rant about the false armageddon alert in Hawaii and he rightly points out that this was not an innocent mistake by merely an incompetent boob who pushed the wrong button. To send out an alert like this would have to have been a premeditated act. When you think about the ramifications of that, it's pretty damn frightening. Then again, look who is populating the highest levels of our national security and law enforcement agencies.

Lastly I'll leave you with a few pieces that reflect on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. whose birthday we rightly celebrated yesterday. Like everything else good and decent, once the Left gets its filthy claws on it, it's corrupted and twisted and used as a weapon to silence people, or worse. Yet, as I may have mentioned yesterday, Dr. King's core beliefs are now completely out of step with mainstream leftist thought. When the Left is about punishing white, Judeo-Christian America, content of character over color of skin is criminal thought. I wonder how long before Black Lives Matter and Antifa call for the re-renaming of every Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in every inner city in the nation. Wouldn't that be ironic, nein? He must be rolling in his grave, as are the Founders I'm sure.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.
