Highlights of the News



Donald John Trump is still our president.

ITEM 1USSA News reported, "In a list consisting mostly of foreign dignitaries that are known to only a handful of people in the UK, US and the rest of the English-speaking world, the Times of London named now-deceased Iranian General Qassem Suleimani to its list of 'Twenty faces to look out for in 2020.'"

Yes, look out for his face, and arms, and legs, and any other of his flying body parts. A reader said he had blue eyes. One blew over here, and the other blew over there.

ITEM 2: LifeSiteNews reported, "Over 200 Republican lawmakers and two Democrats signed an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in support of the Louisiana pro-life law it is considering, stating that legal battles over abortion rights show the unworkability of that term as defined in Roe v. Wade."

End the holocaust.

ITEM 3: Roll Call reported, "A federal appeals court in Washington heard warnings Friday that how they rule in the House Judiciary Committee’s legal fights for information from the Trump administration could spark an avalanche of congressional lawsuits, or even a potential gunfight between the House sergeant at arms and the FBI security detail for Attorney General William Barr.

"Two separate panels of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit heard nearly three hours of oral argument on two committee cases related to former Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Both were filed months before the House voted to impeach President Donald Trump on his dealings with Ukraine."

The clown House counsel is Doug Letter, who is most noted for lying in an appellate court for the Obama administration in a lawsuit brought by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. (See, "DOJ admits its lawyer misled appeals court during oral argument.")

This time around, lawyer Letter said, "The sergeant at arms will arrest Attorney General Barr next time he’s up at Congress, I’ve run into him in the halls there, so next time he’s there we’ll just arrest him. And we can we can go about it that way, or we can shut down the government. There’s a great way for Congress to get information, we’ll shut down the entire government for a couple of months. We saw what a disaster that was."

It was reported as sarcasm.

Democrat jokes often become the law.

ITEM 4: The Associated Press reported, "The Golden Globes, known as the party of the year, is going with a meatless menu for its 77th annual awards show.

"Guests will be served a 100% plant-based meal just ahead of showtime Sunday. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association said Thursday that it wants the initiative to raise environmental awareness about food consumption and waste."

Notice the word vegetarian is giving way to plant-based.

It is rather amusing that they protest carbon dioxide by eating meals based on a life form dependent upon carbon dioxide.

Rick Gervais hosted the show and gave something rare these days: a funny monolog.
• Lots of famous people here tonight. I mean, legends, iconic. This table alone. Al Pacino, Robert De Niro. Baby Yoda — oh, that’s Joe Pesci, sorry.
• Martin Scorsese, the greatest living director, made the news for his comments about Marvel movies. He said they’re not real cinema and they remind him of theme parks. I agree, although I don’t know what he’s doing hanging around theme parks. He’s not big enough to go on the rides.
• I came here in a limo tonight, and the license plate was made by Felicity Huffman. It’s her daughter I feel sorry for. That must be the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to her, and her dad was in Wild Hogs.
• All the best actors have jumped to Netflix and HBO. And the actors who just do Hollywood movies do fantasy adventure nonsense. They wear masks and capes, and really tight costumes. Their job isn’t acting anymore. It’s going to the gym twice a day and taking steroids. Have we got an award for most ripped junkie?
• The Irishman was amazing. Long, but amazing. It wasn’t the only epic movie. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, nearly three hours long. Leonardo DiCaprio attended the premiere, and by the end, his date was too old for him. Even Prince Andrew’s like, “Come on, Leo, mate. You’re nearly 50, son.”
• This is the last time I’m hosting these awards. I don’t care anymore. I’m joking: I never did. NBC clearly don’t care either. Kevin Hart was fired from the Oscars because of some offensive tweets. Lucky for me, the Hollywood Foreign Press can barely speak English, and they’ve no idea what Twitter is. I got offered this gig by fax.
• So if you do win an award tonight don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public, about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god, and **** off.
I get the feeling Gervais passed on the vegan meal.

ITEM 5: Today is the 19th day since the House voted to impeach the president for tweeting (abuse of office) and challenging subpoenas in court (obstruction of Congress). The resolution still has not been sent to the Senate to formally impeach him.

Eddie Scarry wrote the night of the vote, "Public support for impeachment and removal cratered after the congressional hearings last month, particularly among independent voters in swing states. Trump's national approval, all the while, has ticked up. And the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are in no better position now than they were before this circus. If anything, they're looking a lot worse.

"When Pelosi finally accepts the inevitable, here's what she knows will happen: At a minimum, the Republican-controlled Senate will do a quick show trial and acquit Trump on the absurd charges brought against him. At most, Senate Republicans will use the opportunity to over and over again beat it into the public that, yes, Democrats were engaged in a witch hunt and, yes again, Trump had every right and reason to ask the president of Ukraine about both Joe Biden and the 2016 election."

Wednesday will mark 3 weeks since the House voted to impeach.

And he still won't be impeached.

And you thought the DMV was slow.

ITEM 6: The Washington Examiner reported, "Secretary of State Mike Pompeo offered a curt response to a question about whether President Trump's impeachment makes him appear vulnerable on the world stage.

"'You should ask Mr. Soleimani,' Pompeo answered Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace this weekend."

So much for that Democrat talking point.

ITEM 7: Mini Mike Bloomberg is tied for third a month after entering the Great Democrat Race to Finish Second in 2020.
You can buy your way into the Democrat race.

Unless you are Tom Steyer.

ITEM 8: Quid Pro Joe drew more than a hundred people to a rally.
That's how many people show up two days before a Donald Trump rally. We know why.
Biden does not care about America's problems. All he cares about is getting enough million-dollar deals for his son to feed Hunter's coke addiction.

ITEM 9: The Washington Examiner reported, "Fielding a question on the environment posed by an international supporter in Iowa, former Vice President Joe Biden said he "100 percent" believes we should "not be allowing plastic."

"'What's your focus?' the Kenyan woman asked. 'Because in Kenya, we are trying to clean the environment, no plastic bags, you go with your own bags.'

"'I agree with you 100 percent,' Biden replied. 'We should not be allowing plastic, and what we should do is phasing it out.'"

Make America Kenya Again.

ITEM 10: City Journal reported, "About 20 years ago, academic researchers began describing poor urban neighborhoods without supermarkets as 'food deserts.'

"The term captured the attention of elected officials, activists, and the media. They mapped these nutritional wastelands, blamed them on the rise of suburban shopping centers and the decline of mass transit, linked them to chronic health problems suffered by the poor, and encouraged government subsidies to lure food stores to these communities.

"Despite these efforts, which led to hundreds of new stores opening around the country, community health outcomes haven’t changed significantly, and activists think that they know why. The culprits, they say, are the dollar-discount stores in poor neighborhoods that — or so they claim — drive out supermarkets and sell junk food. Never mind that compelling research suggests a lack of supermarkets isn’t the problem — let alone the popularity of discount stores."

Poca, West Virginia, population 974, has a supermarket and a Dollar General.

Those other City Halls are brain deserts.

ITEM 11: Monty Python Terry Gilliam said, "I’m tired of white men being blamed for everything wrong with the world."

Me too.

Women and people of color who use computers, TV, automobiles, and a thousand other things are guilty of cultural appropriation.

ITEM 12: In Iran, a few people were happy that General Qassem Soleimani's gone where the goblins go.
The Iranian Parliament was determined to show they are more upset with the killing of General O Sole Mio than Democrats are.
And the Iraqi Parliament voted to kick us out of Iraq. Fine with me.

ITEM 13: Buried in a Politico report was John Bolton's reaction to killing General Salmonella. Bolton said the killing was long in the making.

A senior official told Politico, "We’ve known every minute of every day where Soleimani is for years — there’s no moment of any given day where five or six intelligence agencies can’t tell you where he is. It’s been one of his talking points: The Americans can find me any time, they just don’t dare hit me."

Talk is cheap. His death cost a million-dollar missile.

ITEM 14:  The president literally lopped off the head of Iran's terrorism program. Retaliation is futile.

52. That the number of hostages Iran took at our embassy in 1978.

His message to Iran is he is not Jimmy Carter. His message to America also is he is not Jimmy Carter.

Iranian leaders should think of President Trump as their Santa Claus. He sees them when they are sleeping. He knows when they are awake.

ITEM 15: Is John Kerry on the list of Iranian targets?
Kerry needs to be swift-boated, and by swift-boated I mean prosecuted.

ITEM 16: PJ Media reported, "The Selective Service System website crashed just hours after the announcement that the U.S. had launched a successful drone strike that killed Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander Qasem Suleimani. The website's crash was due to rumors being spread on social media that rising tensions between Iran and the U.S. would lead to war and a new draft."

Hahaha.

Dear Millennial Snowflakes:
Uncle Sam doesn't want you.
Why do we have a selective service? No agency of government ever dies, does it?

ITEM 17: The Washington Times reported, "The New Yorker Editor David Remnick said Sunday that it’s 'a source of great frustration for the press' that Americans still continue to support President Trump despite last week’s impeachment drama.

"During an appearance on CNN, Mr. Remnick was asked by Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter whether anything was going change now that Mr. Trump had been impeached by the Democrat-controlled House."

Hahaha.

Remnick said, "Right now, you have a country that is split, and to the great frustration of people like you and people like me, we don’t somehow understand. We don’t understand why the evidence of things, why facts don’t penetrate so many of our brothers and sisters in the United States of America. And it’s a source of great frustration for the press and for anybody who is thinking about these issues that are so important."

We looked at the evidence.

He is innocent.

Just as we looked at the evidence in the Russian Collusion Hoax.

He is innocent.

The only delusional people are the elitists in the media and the Democrat Party.

ITEM 18: Call it the Iran Protection Act.
Once bought, Democrats stay bought.

ITEM 19: Robert De Niro provided a little more Trumpenfreude.
Even Hollywood is tired of his F-bombing tirades against the president.

ITEM 20: Hahaha.
Hahaha.

ITEM 21: The Daily Caller reported, "President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., on Saturday, posted a photo of an AR-15 with Hillary Clinton on the magazine behind prison bars."

Lock (her up) and load.

    2. Hey, stupid hypocritical dishonest troll, who thinks it sits on high to judge what it perceives as other's hypocrisy: STFU you hypocrite. You are a troll, the ultimate hypocrite. You have absolutely NO standing to judge anyone on anything.

      And, judging from the (lack of) posts responding to your bucket of diarrhea, the posters here are starting to understand that. Just as the author of this blog quit responding to you forever ago. I bet that really digs at you. So, suck it loser. Suck it good. Suck it hard.

      What you should do, is turn off your mummy's computer, go upstairs and repair your relationship with her. Desperately seeking attention by trolling at this blog, or any other blogs won't substitute for the attention your mummy denied you in the past.

      Also, being the stupid hypocritical dishonest troll is not something to aspire to. Only losers like you do that. Instead, you should grow the flux up, and find something useful to do with what remains of your pathetic lonely life.

      And take your stupid sock puppet trolls with you.

  9. Trump bears full responsibility for what comes next. He rode to victory in 2016 on a promise to end the useless wars in the Middle East, but he has now demonstrated very clearly that he is a liar.

    Instead of seeking detente, one of his first actions was to end the JCPOA nuclear agreement and re-introduce sanctions against Iran. In a sense, Iran has from the beginning been the exception to Trump’s no-new-war pledge, a position that might reasonably be directly attributed to his incestuous relationship with the American Jewish community and in particular derived from his pandering to the expressed needs of Israel’s belligerent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    Naturally the neocons say Obama gave Iran billions. Nope he just returned their funds that were escrowed after the 79 Revolution.

    How dare those Iranians remove the dictator Ike put into power over them! How dare they revolt over the loss of their democracy in 1953! How dare they try to nationalize their own oil reserves the Brits exploited!

    How dare they put their country in the middle of 35 American military bases!

    They must pay in blood. Their cultural treasures will be destroyed if they dare protest again. They must submit or die say the neocons who hope and pray they do not submit.

    6. What's interesting to me is even the most ardent liberal has a hard time justifying or showing how Iran's behavior had changed after getting 150 billion dollars and the relaxation of sanctions. They just used the money to fund more terrorism in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq with the lion share going to the Qud's forces. The carrot only works if their is a plausible "stick" waiting in the wings. What is so hard to understand about that?

An investigation by Ukraine that ended in an exoneration for the Bidens would be a boon to Joe's campaign. Joe should be thanking POTUS for the chance to clear his name.
