I haven't seen the Democrats this mad since we freed the slaves!
Pelosi, Chuck The Schmuck Schumer, Ellison. Well, it's all a matter of trajectory. The Democrats are maintaining the same trajectory they've been on for years, and it's pointing them toward a deep hole. If they had the ability to think critically and examine the reasons for their losses of the last few years, they might try a new direction. But no, they are content with losing. And that's fine with me.
Back when dinosaurs roamed Washington DC, it was said that the press wouldn't report on politicians sexcapades unless they were caught with a dead prostitute or a live boy. Now days it is the press itself indulging in necrophilia and pedophilia.
One-third of precincts in Wayne County could be disqualified from an
unprecedented statewide recount of presidential election results
because of problems with ballots.
Michigan’s largest county voted overwhelmingly for Democratic candidate
Hillary Clinton, but officials couldn’t reconcile vote totals for 610
of 1,680 precincts during a countywide canvass of vote results late
Most of those are in heavily Democratic Detroit, where the number of
ballots in precinct poll books did not match those of voting machine
printout reports in 59 percent of precincts, 392 of 662.
According to state law, precincts whose poll books don’t match with
ballots can’t be recounted. If that happens, original election results
“It’s not good,” conceded Daniel Baxter, elections director for the
city of Detroit.
He blamed the discrepancies on the city’s decade-old voting machines,
saying 87 optical scanners broke on Election Day. Many jammed when
voters fed ballots into scanners, which can result in erroneous vote
counts if ballots are inserted multiple times. Poll workers are
supposed to adjust counters to reflect a single vote but in many cases
failed to do so, causing the discrepancies, Baxter said.
Even so, Baxter said it’s unlikely all 392 of the city’s precincts with
mismatched numbers will be disqualified from a recount. The city is in
contact with elections officials at the state of Michigan and Baxter
predicted the numbers will match when the ballot boxes are re-opened
for the recount, which starts Tuesday in Wayne County at Cobo Center.
“It’s a challenge, but we’re confident the ballots will match,” Baxter
said. “I don’t think it’s going to be 100 percent, but it never is with
a recount.” Dan in Ohio
County reports obtained by The Detroit News, though, indicate
canvassers were provided no explanation for why the numbers didn’t add
up in those precincts. They certified the results of the election
anyway...... Etc., Etc., Etc. You get the idea. Go to the link to read
it all if you wish.
Stein, of course, does not expect to change the results of the
election. She launched her laughable recount effort in a vainglorious
attempt to raise money. As Conservative Review’s Rob Eno explained:
“Stein did this to increase her donor file. Many politicians ‘buy’
their donor files from their campaigns. It is a valuable source of
income for the candidate. In a report on Ben Carson’s donor list an
expert told NBC News that each email address of an active donor is
worth $5-$6 on the open rental market over a three year period. Stein
is looking to cash in.”
Should Lisa Lyons’ bill pass in Michigan, it would be retroactive to
Jan. 1, 2016, forcing
Jill Stein to pay for her own demands. It would justifiably save the
state’s taxpayers millions, and stick it to the Green Party con artist.
Sorry this is so late. Ron sent it yesterday, but I am in the throes of
the worst wintertime cold that even my wife tole me that any other man
would be crying in delirium for his mommy to make him some creamed peas
on toast. Don't be concerned, I am a survivor. Thank you.
PS. It would not surprise if recounts in Nevada and Colorado would give Trump those states as well.
"Stein did this to increase her donor file." At least by one as in George Soros. He seems to be backing a lot of losers of late. The left sees imagined Nazis everywhere yet have a real one in their midst and they praise him. Hopefully he will be joining Fidel before long.
Hayden told the committee that waterboarding was used "against these
three individuals because of the circumstances at the time. There was a
belief that additional catastrophic attacks against the homeland were
inevitable... and we had limited knowledge about Al-Qaeda ...
Well, reaction to this was swift, my friends. The Senate's
second-ranking Democrat, Dick Turbin, immediately called on the Justice
Department to open a criminal investigation. He threatened to hold up a
Justice Department nominee if his demand isn't met.
Then he [Hayden] transitioned and suggested it may
be time to move into areas protected by the Second Amendment. He said,
than jigger in the Fourth Amendment, and try to increase–only
marginally–our ability to predict this event, why don’t you take a look
at the Second? And why don’t we begin to wonder about making the guy
less efficient who actually conducts the event?”
Hayden then went on to
suggest we recognize that there are certain
people who ought to never be able to own a gun, and that there are
certain guns that ought not be owned by anyone.
See how this works? Hayden is suggesting the “counterterrorism
discussion” revolve around denying access to certain weapons–say,
AR-15s–to anyone because the Orlando terrorist used an AR-15 to kill
people. This is an insult to law-abiding citizens who are made suspect
in Hayden’s scenario and cannot be trusted with a certain type of gun
on the basis that criminals and terrorists cannot be trusted with them.
Here is a novel idea for Hayden: lock up the criminals and deport or
imprison the terrorists. It is they who are evil, not the guns that
they sometimes use to kill people. As long as they are in our
midst,they will find something that can be weaponized and will develop
a method to carry out their devious actions. Disarming law-abiding
Americans would only make it easier for criminals and terrorists to
gain success by weaponizing rudimentary things.
The Ohio State attacker proved that. He attacked a campus where
students are disarmed by mandate, thereby allowing him to wreak havoc
and instill terror through the use of a car and butcher knife. All of
America would be like the Ohio State campus if we were crazy enough to
listen to Hayden’s attempt to justify limiting the Second Amendment. [FULL]
is one of the most, if not themost,
decorated soldier in U.S. History, and the nation owes him more than a
little ho-maj. I don't
at all blame him for not having Dick
Turbin ... you know; dispatched. But this latest. What the
hell is he
thinking? What happens to people who linger too long in the
Liberal twats? Really? Do the Clintons have his FBI file?
I get in trouble regularly for saying it would be WORSE if terrorists didn't use guns. Our own military (and every other one in the world) uses explosives or incendiaries when they want to kill people in job-lots. Bullets are for small-scale mayhem.

Some reactions on Twitter:
naming of a climate denier like Scott Pruitt to head the EPA is nothing
less than an effort to undermine the agency’s core mission to safeguard

“Pruitt has sued the EPA, has fought environmental protections enacted
by President Obama, and has denied the science of climate change
itself. He represents the very threats the EPA should protect against,
not be headed by. The California League of Conservation Voters calls on
our Senators to reject this wrong-headed nomination which puts our

“California has a unique role to play. We are the sixth largest economy

how we respond to Trump’s attacks on our environmental protections will
determine the pace of progress these next four years. We must organize

Obama’s EPA thinks we
should sacrifice ourselves for climate change.
But ‘climate change’ is leftist manufactured bs. NASA with NOAA has

And in fact there is ZERO evidence that CO2 affect climate temperatures
CO2 does not lead but *follows* changes in temperatures. This
outstanding 4 minute video makes that point about CO2 clear as day:

As the Wall Street Journal's John Fund reports, Minnesota Democrat Al
Franken’s narrow, 312-vote victory in 2008 over incumbent Sen. Norm
Coleman may have come as the result of people being allowed to vote
who, under existing law, shouldn’t have been.
[See who gave the most to Franken.]
The certification of Franken as the victor came only after a series of
recounts dragging out for almost half a year. It also sparked an
investigation by Minnesota Majority, a conservative watchdog group that
compared the list of those recorded as having voted in the election
against what Fund calls “criminal rap sheets.” The group found, in what
appears to clearly warrant further and official inquiry, that

the group's totals. The number of felons voting in those two counties
alone exceeds Mr. Franken's victory margin.

am appalled at the Texas elector who will not vote the will of the
people who placed him in his position; he doesn't deserve to be called
by name. This "me baby" had a personal, popular vote to cast. And he
was chosen by his party to cast a representational vote for that party.
Instead, he will claim 2 personal votes for himself while citing his
allegiance to the Constitution and being totally blind to his treason
It does NOT matter to what political party you belong - this is a
Before you Ds start cheering this selfish elector for being "brave"
please consider that he is a traitor to the system that the founding
fathers established with God's wisdom hundreds of years ago. He is
claiming to be wiser, more patriotic. I claim the opposite. He is a
small child who thinks his desire is more important than others...than
the country. He's asking the spotlight be placed on himself instead of
the greatest nation in the world. Just another "me baby."
The correct thing to have done would have been to give his electoral
vote to another Republican who would have followed the will of the
people. But he just can't let go of that bit of personal, selfish power.
Look past the end of your nose to end results. "Fundamentally
transforming" the country means, ultimately, its demise: more division,
more focus on individual rather than patriotism. We are being torn
apart from the inside by our own selfishness. Instead of "doing unto
others" and becoming stronger, we are demanding little kingdoms for
ourselves without considering long-term consequences.

ASIA TIMES piece by Reuven Brenner rings a lot of bells.
either mainstream media, academics or Facebook groupies were not so
isolated within their mutual admiration societies, perhaps, just
perhaps, they might have stumbled on the following information (that
Arnold Beichman summarized back in early 1970s, in a piece titled “The
American Worker Is a ‘Honky’”), and raise some questions about origins
of their casual dismissal of the “working class”:
spent the first fourteen years of my life under communism. When my
parents got out in 1962, I realized to my utter astonishment that much
of academia was on the left, praising communism, rationalizing
increased centralization of powers under a variety of jfargons. Even
the US was not immune to these ideas, and that the left and academia
despised workers who wanted routine lives, rather than revolutions.
the 1960s, those wanting to become journalists started as copy-boys
(“copy-persons”?), moved up to newsroom jobs, and eventually became
reporters and editors.
All this came to my mind during the last few weeks, both with Fidel
Castro’s death and when Mrs. Clinton made casual reference labeling
roughly fifty percent of her opponent’s voters “deplorables.” Although
she later apologized, her adoring crowd did not boo her at all when she
first uttered the word, the mainstream media neither. Parts of the
crowd, many students among them have either been demonstrating or
crying their hearts out on the laps of Mamma Universities, the latter
indulging them with puppies, play-dohs, coloring books, postponing
exams and “feel your pain” safe places. And these students indulged in
this nonsense shamelessly while their not-subsidized age group was
showing up at work and was being taxed.
How did much of the mainstream media turn so blind? And where does
their contempt for workers come from, that using the term “deplorable”
did not even instantly raise eyebrows?
The answer I found for the first question was the following: Academia
expanded suddenly and rapidly after 1958 when the US passed the
National Defense Education Act (provoked by the launch of the Sputnik).
The government threw money indiscriminately at universities, where
“social studies,” “humanities,” “journalism” and even the second and
third rate (and below) undergrad business schools became major,
accidental beneficiaries (predictably maths and engineering expanded
far less). These faculties grew significantly, while drastically
lowering the selection of both students and faculty.
is nice to be subsidized revolutionaries. But even “leftover” Bernie
Sanders must have noticed that his initial calls for “Revolution!”
frightened a bit his crowds and he toned down his rhetoric. Later, he
and Hillary just promised to get rid of students’ debts. Yes, why not
tax the already hard working kids of that age group even more, and give
demonstrating students more puppies and coloring books?
It did not take long for this vast majority of heavily subsidized,
expanded academia, detached from any non-paper-shuffling experience, to
rationalize and exaggerate their importance. They had to: subsidies, as
taxes, must be legitimized in countries where people vote on budgets.
So academics rationalized their “songs” — like in the Aesop Fable about
the grasshoppers and the hard working ants, the former singing and
hopping when times were good, and dismissing the hard-working ants
bearing ears of corn to their nests.
The changes in journalism happened since the early 1960s and are
related to these 1958, rashly-decided subsidies. Before the 1960s,
those wanting to become journalists started as copy-boys
(“copy-persons”?), moved up to newsroom jobs, and eventually became
reporters and editors. They gained experience through such
apprenticeship, mentored by older generations of seasoned journalists –
many at the time still shaped by WWII and its aftermath. Journalism was
a “trade” to be learned through experience and was not what it
subsequently became: an updated version of the fable’s sing-and-dance
