Hey DianeR,

Good Sunday morning.

HotCoffee, I find it interesting how the lefties never look back at their own record of deciet and corruption all if which has been going on in politics on every level. The really wacky ones fixate on how the Republicans fix elections.

You probably hve some experience with this little gem but it goes on in many states California being the most prominent. Evidence is already on tape from a number of sources.

"Ballot Harvesting"

And more,

"California’s late votes broke big for Democrats. Here’s why GOP was surprised"

Tricky people those lefties. Screech about the other guy while doing far more themselves.

DianeR,

I agree with you....+ this one.

Progressivism is a Dangerous Mental Disease

https://dbdailyupdate.com/index.php/2018/11/30/progressivism-is-a-dangerous-mental-disease/

Today’s Campaign Update(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Oh, hey, we’re prosecuting people for lying to congress now? – Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to a count of lying to congress on Thursday, becoming the 7th person in our nation’s entire history to be prosecuted for this particular crime. Yes, you read that right – the 7th one.

This of course is just a continuation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s campaign of intimidation and abuse of power in his fake investigation into the Democrat/Media “Russia Collusion” fantasy play. This abusive process has already bullied General Mike Flynn into a guilty plea on a process crime and is now focused on fringe players like Jerome Corsi and Roger Stone.

As the great Mollie Hemingway points out in a piece at the Federalist this morning, Mueller and his cronies like Jim Comey have a long history of trading in this sort of bullying of witnesses into admissions of process crimes in order to claim scalps. It’s well worth the 5 minutes it takes to read it – truly eye-opening, in fact.

And if you’re thinking, hey, maybe next Mueller will go get known congressional perjurers Comey, James Clapper and John Brennan, well, stop living in that dream world, because Mueller is a guy who never targets members of the deep state club, in which he is a lifelong member.

No? Neither can I. – Paul Ryan ended his 20-year career in congress on Thursday. Can you list his major achievements?

First, the Social Justice Warriors came for Frosty the Snowman, and we did nothing. Then they came for A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and we did nothing. Now, they’re coming for Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer:

The holiday TV classic "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" is seriously problematic.

— HuffPost (@HuffPost) November 29, 2018

*sigh*

Progressivism is a very dangerous mental disease. But then, you already knew that, didn’t you?

Speaking of mentally-diseased progressives… – Who can forget yesterday, when top aide to and spokesman for The Pantsuit Princess, the completely deranged Philippe Reines, admitted he doesn’t wear pants when he appears on television, and is damn proud of it. We know this because he was caught on tape as he rampaged through the halls of the Fox News studios yesterday after losing yet another on-air debate with a conservative counterpart.

I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

Reines responded with a tweet, because of course he did:

Oh. Well, then, that makes it all better.

*sigh*

Progressivsim has also become dangerously synonymous to anti-Semitism, in case you haven’t noticed. – CNN decided it had to sever its long, close ties to one of many, many, many progressive paid contributors, Marc Lamont Hill, on Thursday, after Hill had made an inflammatory anti-Israel speech at the United Nations that the Anti-Defamation League declared to anti-Semitic.

In his speech, Hill called for a “free Palestine from the river to the sea”, a term that is commonly used by Hamas and other Muslim terrorist groups. Opposition to Israel’s very existence and blind acceptance and promotion of radical Islam and Sharia law have become major tenets of the Progressive cult over the past decade. It is simply reality that you cannot be an accepted part of the Progressive “in crowd” and not hold what are undeniably anti-Semitic views.

This is a mental disorder, plain and simple, and a very dangerous one. Its belief system dominates today’s Democrat Party and our national news media, and it works every day to brainwash the public at large. It’s fun to make fun of Progressives – I do it here at the Campaign Update each and every day – but it is vitally important that we “normals” out here in Flyover Country recognize these people for what they are and take them very, very seriously.

Because they basically believe everything the Nazis believed, and have many more means at their disposal for getting their hateful messages to the public. The next time we elect one of them to the presidency, things are going to get very, very ugly.

That is all.

Did you look at Mollie's piece?

Revealed: Robert Mueller’s FBI Repeatedly Abused Prosecutorial DiscretionEstablishment DC types who reflexively defend Mueller haven't explained how they came to trust him so completely. It's a question worth asking given the bumpy historical record of Mueller's tenure as FBI director.

Sunday humor.....

Stormy Daniels and Queen Elizabeth went to the Pearly Gates on the same day. They both met with an angel to find out if they would be admitted to Heaven

The angel said: “Unfortunately, there’s only one space available in Heaven today so I must decide which one of you will be admitted.”

The angel asked Stormy if there was some particular reason why she should go to Heaven. Stormy took off her top and said: “Look at these, they’re the most perfect breasts God ever created and I’m sure it will please God to be able to see them every day, for eternity.”

The angel thanked Stormy, and asked Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the same question.

The Queen walked over to a toilet, pulled the lever and flushed it without saying a word.

The Angel immediately said: “Okay, your Majesty, you may go into Heaven.”

Stormy was outraged and asked, “What was that all about? I showed you two of God’s own perfect creations and you turned me down. She simply flushed a commode and she got admitted to Heaven! Would you explain that to me?”

“Sorry, Stormy,” said the Angel, “but even in Heaven, a royal flush beats a pair, no matter how big they are.”

Till tomorow....

Good day HotCoffee,

I got up early today to catch the opening five minutes of a variety of radio and television. Regardless of political leaning literally every show opened with a nice comment acknowledging the passing of President H.W. Bush.

If you remember back I said I don’t bother listening to Thom Hartmann due to his constant repetitive hate filled rants against anyone other than the alt-lefties and communists but I do tune him in for his first segment following an important event.

Well, over the weekend we lost a President of the United States (yes, he was a Republican).

Well, Thom did not let me down, His opening comment was “HW Bush died over the weekend and I do not like to speak ill of the dead not yet buried in the ground so I will delay my comments.”

He then immediately moved on to the theory of trickledown economics.

The bitterness, hatred, and lack of respect for anything republican filling this man is beyond description. He must lead a terribly miserable life and I will pray for him.

Sorry for the long screed but that treatment of a former president was beyond description.

Catch you later as right now after listening for fifteen minutes I need a shower.

Hey DianeR,

Sorry i missed this morning...I really didn't pay much attention to the media today.

No matter if a Dem or Repub President passes I really detest these 7 or 8 day funerals especially during what should be a merry season...but actually anytime.

So much of every person who ever met them pontificating BS... So I'm skipping it. I said the same during McCains funeral as well. IMHO 2 days is plenty. So until now I had my own private media blackout! Thats just me, most folks most likely see it differently.

I'm not much for pomp and circumstance anyway.

I also look at the Bushes, Clintons, Obamas as one big happy crime family as is evident in my posts of prior days, and add to that they are anti Trump. Just wait for the insults...what Melania wore....what Trump said...etc.

Sorry not wanting to be a bummer...just real.

I can't take more than 5 minutes of Thom ...he spends most of his time on the air reading to people. I usually pop in on Thom during a commercial on another station or read his Friday email.

With all that being said life is good enjoy!!

Chat at ya tomorrow!

HotCoffee you and I are in complete agreement with respect to long funerals and the corruption that put all of our oresidents in office.

The leftie/socialists still have their bowels in an uproar over the red berry covered Christman trees in the White House.

If the trees were green it would be: represents the money stolen by the patriarchy and not shared with the proletariat

If the trees were white it would be: a symbol of white supremacy

If they were blue it would be: a representation of how the 1% wants to destroy the air you breathe

Pick a color and they'd pick an offense.

The latest to come out of these idiots is the banning of the song "Baby it's cold outside" The me too movement calls it a rape song.

Lord, how far down can they sink?

Just to start the season of pissing them off, Merry Christmas to you and yours,

HotCoffee, your link did not work but through Al Gores Google machine I got the gist of that you offered. You are on to something with the lefties desire to make happiness illegal.

This term completely defines the leftie/socialist beliefs and I thank God every day I subscribe to a totally opposite philosophy.

Keep your investments in Reynolds Group Holdings as the lefties need for a larger and larger head covering is never ending which leads me to my Shark Tank idea for malcontent leftie/socialists, pink pussyhats made from tin foil. I would market them as Christmas gifts but the majority of them rebuke the idea of the Christian religion.

As is this ......

Women Now Claim This Popular DISNEY Song Promotes Sexual AssaultWhat won’t offend modern feminists?

An all-male a cappella group at a prestigious university will no longer sing one well-known Disney song because some audience members — and one sophomore who wrote an article about it for the student newspaper — found it to be “uncomfortable.”

Of course, this is all happening at an Ivy League college: Princeton University.

One of the school’s all-male a cappella groups, the Princeton Tigertones, will no longer perform its popular rendition of “Kiss the Girl” from The Little Mermaid after the complaints. During their performance, the group invites a woman from the audience to join them as they sing and “playfully dance with her for a bit,” according to Inside Higher Ed. As the song reaches a close, the group invites a male audience member, pretend to groom him, and then put the two together, asking that they kiss, as the song suggests. The random couple complies, “sometimes on with a peck on the cheek, sometimes briefly on the lips,” Inside Higher Ed reported.

The entire scene is harmless and done in good fun, which of course does not sit well with the modern outrage crowd.

Your link pointing to the lack of a sense of humor is very correct. Political correctness, social media, Google, and video games all have fled us to flee from face to face contact with others. A pox on Al Gore for inventing the internet.

Hi HotCoffee, I saw some of the funeral and I did catch the Clinton looking at the wall when the President Trump and his wife came in and sat in the pew. Hillary was heckled all over the media for her attitude and it just points out what a bitter individual she is but she hasn't been getting good press so I suspect she is super pissed.

Of all people, Donna Brazile the disgraced reporter who fed Hillary Clinton the debate questions just over two years ago.

The democrat party could have 30 candidates running for President next year but my disappointment for the day was when the creepy porn lawyer decided cheating his client Stormy Daniels out of cash, not paying his office rent, having to sell his personal possessions to pay his ex-wife in their divorce settlement,owing his ex-partner $10 million dollars, and beating up his girlfriend were not enough qualifications to run on the democrat party ticket. Perhaps he should contact the Kennedy's for how better to polish up his resume, probably include at least one murder just for good measure.

Until tomorrow when we can discuss creepy uncle Joe "hands" Biden who thinks he is the most qualified to run. Otta be fun listening to Hartmann and the other leftie/ socialist radio bobbleheads defend that sleezebag borderline child molesters candidacy.

However the folks who orchestrated the takeover are not exactly left-wing or even centrist democrats. So my situation is that i now face the old republicans and the new right-wing democrats, so what now?

I'm fairly certain that these new folks don't even know who Bernie or AOC is.

So It's obviously a situation that requires an educational solution....So what now???

A little humor.....

Bible misquotes

We don’t know the author of
the following tale, or even
if it is true. We do know it
makes us smile, so we’ll share
it with you.

Judas Asparagus
A child was asked to write a book report on the entire Bible. Here is what was written:

The Children’s Bible in a Nutshell

In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was nothing but GOD, darkness, and some gas. The Bible says, ‘The LORD thy GOD is one,’ but I think HE must be lot older than that.

Anyway, GOD said, ‘Give me a light!’ and someone did. Then GOD made the world. HE split the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked, but they weren’t embarrassed because mirrors hadn’t been invented yet.

Adam and Eve disobeyed GOD by eating one bad apple, so they were driven from the Garden of Eden..

Not sure what they were driven in though, because they didn’t have cars.

Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who hated his brother as long as he was Abel.

Pretty soon all of the early people died off, except for Methuselah, who lived to be like a million or something.

One of the next important people was Noah, who was a good guy, but one of his kids was kind of a Ham. Noah built a large boat and put his family and some animals on it. He asked some other people to join him, but they said they would have to take a rain check.

After Noah came Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob was more famous than his brother, Esau, because Esau sold Jacob his birthmark in exchange for some pot roast.

Jacob had a son named Joseph who wore a really loud sports coat.

Another important Bible guy is Moses, whose real name was Charlton Heston. Moses led the Israel Lights out of Egypt and away from the evil Pharaoh after GOD sent ten plagues on Pharaoh’s people. These plagues included frogs, mice, lice, bowels, and no cable.

GOD fed the Israel Lights every day with manicotti. Then HE gave them HIS Top Ten Commandments. These include: don’t lie, cheat, smoke, dance, or covet your neighbor’s stuff. Oh, yeah, I just thought of one more: Humor thy father and thy mother.

One of Moses’ best helpers was Joshua who was the first Bible guy to use spies. Joshua fought the battle of Geritol and the fence fell over on the town.

After Joshua came David. He got to be king by killing a giant with a slingshot. He had a son named Solomon who had about 300 wives and 500 porcupines. My teacher says he was wise, but that doesn’t sound very wise to me.

After Solomon there were a bunch of major league prophets.

One of these was Jonah, who was swallowed by a big whale and then barfed up on the shore.

There were also some minor league prophets, but I guess we don’t have to worry about them.

After the Old Testament came the New Testament. JESUS is the star of The New Testament. HE was born in Bethlehem in a barn. (I wish I had been born in a barn too, because my mom is always saying to me, ‘Close the door! Were you born in a barn?’ It would be nice to say, ‘As a matter of fact, I was.’)

During HIS life, JESUS had many arguments with sinners like the Pharisees and the Republicans.

JESUS also had twelve opossums. The worst one was Judas Asparagus. Judas was so evil that they named a terrible vegetable after him.

JESUS was a great man. HE healed many leopards and even preached to some Germans on the Mount.

But the Republicans and all those guys put JESUS on trial before Pontius the Pilot. Pilot didn’t stick up for JESUS. He just washed his hands instead.

Anyways, JESUS died for our sins, then came back to life again. HE went up to Heaven but will be back at the end of the Aluminium. HIS return is foretold in the book of Revolution.

And now we know.

From Peter Van Buren: https://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/muellers-investigation-is-missing-one-thing-a-crime/

Excerpts:

The core problem—at least that we know of—is that Mueller hasn’t found a crime connected with Russiagate that someone working for Trump might have committed. His investigation to date hasn’t been a search for the guilty party—Colonel Mustard in the library—so much as a search for an actual crime, some crime, any crime. Yet all he’s uncovered so far are some old financial misdealings by Manafort and chums, payoffs to Trump’s mistresses that are not in themselvesillegal (despite what prosecutors simply assert in the Cohen sentencing report, someone will have to prove to a jury the money was from campaign funds and the transactions were “for the purpose of influencing” federal elections, not simply “protecting his family from shame”), and a bunch of people lying about unrelated matters.

And that’s the giveaway to Muller’s final report. There was no base crime as the starting point of the investigation. With Watergate, there was the break-in at Democratic National Headquarters. With Russiagate you had…Trump winning the election. (Remember too that the FBI concluded forever ago that the DNC hack crime was done by the Russians, no Mueller needed.)

Almost everything Mueller has, the perjury and lying cases, are crimes he created through the process of investigating. He’s Schroeder’s Box: the infractions only exist when he tries to look at them. Mueller created most of his booked charges by asking questions he already knew the answers to, hoping his witness would lie and commit new crimes literally in front of him. Nobody should be proud of lying, but it seems a helluva way to contest a completed election as Trump enters the third year of his term.

Mueller’s end product, his report, will most likely claim that a lot of unsavory things went on. But it seems increasingly unlikely that he’ll have any evidence Trump worked with Russia to win the election, let alone that Trump is now under Putin’s control. If Mueller had a smoking gun, we’d be watching impeachment hearings by now.

Coalage3, I think Mueller has come up with nothing and the lefties are just figuring that out so the game plan is to chase Trump with campaign violations but first they have to tie it to an actual crime. Watching the idiots scurry around looking for something, anything, makes for good comedy.

The reality is, these mean spirited little twits cannot get over the fact Hillary Clinton lost to of all people, Donald J. Trump. I am sure Hartmann is kicking himself over and over for his support of quite likely the only person in the world who could have screwed up that run for presidency. He strongly underestimated the dislike for her by the mainstream working people in this country. Thank God he did as we could have had Bernie Freeshit Sanders in the White House and if you think there is stagnation now, just imagine what it would have been with a comitted socialistt as POTUS.

I wonder in which of Bernie's three homes he is sleeping in tonight?

"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class.
