Political Speak

For now the President is making nice with Ryan; that won’t last for Ryan put the skids to him with that ObamaCare Lite piece of crap he was peddling around DC. Ryan has lied to the Conservative faction at every turn. he needs to be hit on the head with the gavel and tossed out of the House chair.

Trump Praises Ryan on Health as Aides Privately Blame the Speaker

In public, President Donald Trump is standing by House Speaker Paul Ryan over the failed Obamacare replacement bill.

“I like Speaker Ryan; he worked very, very hard,” Trump said in the Oval Office after Ryan on Friday pulled the legislation from the House floor for lack of support. Instead, the president pinned the responsibility on Democrats.

Behind the scenes, though, the president’s aides blame Ryan for the bill’s embarrassing defeat, which stymied a Republican goal for more than seven years, a senior administration official said.

Asked whether Trump, Ryan, or the Freedom Caucus chairman, North Carolina Republican Mark Meadows, would be most to blame if the bill fails, the administration official said Ryan. The official insisted on anonymity to discuss internal White House deliberations. [snip]

Trump and his aides were heavily invested in the legislation. On Thursday, Trump’s chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, took the unusual step of traveling to Capitol Hill to deliver an ultimatum: take a vote on Friday, win or lose. Ryan had sought to carefully build a majority for the bill, and it would be highly unusual for him to call the vote without knowing if it would pass.
Little Choice

Ryan had little choice but go along with the administration’s gambit.

Trump said Friday at the White House, before the legislation was pulled, that Ryan shouldn’t lose his job if the bill went down. He also said “no” when asked if the bill had been rushed or if he regretted pursuing a replacement of the Affordable Care Act ahead of other priorities such as a tax overhaul. [snip]

Ryan could have put the “buy insurance across state lines” and “tort reform” into the bill. He bent over for the lawyers and the insurance companies instead of giving the voters what they wanted.
He lost and that will come back to bite him. He needs to be voted out of the Speakership and even better, out of office.

After Rockville Rape, School Superintendent Accuses Parents of Racism

In the wake of a rape at Rockville High School in Maryland last week, Montgomery County Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith is accusing parents of “racism and xenophobia.”
Two young men – at least one of whom is in the U.S. illegally – are accused of raping and sodomizing a 14-year-old girl in a school bathroom.

Tucker Carlson reported tonight about a series of troubling emails sent by Smith to parents in his district following what Smith has called “the incident.”

He cited one Smith email, sent Thursday, that says some parents’ reactions have “crossed the line.”

Smith wrote that “racist, xenophobic calls and emails” will not be tolerated and will be reported to the police. [snip]

Carlson pointed out that Smith speaks out much more strongly about xenophobia than he does about the sexual assault of a minor.

“To Dr. Jack R. Smith, the worst crime imaginable is not sexual violence against a child, but naughty language he considers ‘intolerant,'” Tucker said. [snip]

Can you possibly fathom what kind of worms are crawling around inside this “educator’s skull? But then again, this is a Democrat State that declared itself a sanctuary state right after this crime against an American female. Brings new meaning to the word “Vomit”.

“Make it natural”: Following trans policy, principal tells boy to undress in front of a girl

“Make it natural.”
Those are the words of Dr. E Wayne Foley, the assistant principal at Boyertown Area High School in Pennsylvania, who was responding to the complaints of Joel Doe, a junior at the school.

On October 31, 2016, Joel Doe had experienced an event that was far more scarring than the Halloween occurrences of the day. Doe was undressing for his regular physical education class in the school’s locker room, when he realized that there was a female in the very same room. He was wearing nothing but his underwear, and the girl was wearing nothing but shorts and a bra.

Confused, embarrassed, and humiliated, Doe and his peers chose to inform Dr. Foley of the incident after class. After explaining what had happened to Dr. Foley, the assistant principal gave an unexpected response — that there was very little he could do, and that it was dependent on the students themselves to make themselves feel comfortable — that they should “tolerate it,” and make it “natural.”

The incident was a result of the school’s transgender policy, which requires biological boys or girls to “identify” as the opposite sex before choosing locker rooms that fit their “gender identity.” The school failed to inform the boy’s parents of this policy, who were justifiably furious that such an episode had occurred.

The young boy no longer feels comfortable using the school’s restrooms.

In response, the Alliance Defending Freedom and Independence Law Center filed a lawsuit against the school district last Tuesday, arguing the school had violated the “child’s fundamental right to bodily privacy contrary to constitutional and statutory principles.”

It appears that the left cares very little about personal privacy, even though the “right to privacy” argument is employed when discussing abortions (which is a fallacy, but that is a topic for another discussion). Apparently, liberals only truly care about privacy when it is politically expedient. [snip]

When an adult has a bait can for a brain pan, there’s no hope for the kids in schools.

1st sex reassignment inmate says women’s prison is ‘torture’

The first U.S. inmate to have taxpayer-funded sex reassignment surgery says she’s been mistreated since being transferred to a California women’s prison, where she now has a beard and mustache because officials have denied her a razor.

In a hand-written federal court filing, convicted killer Shiloh Heavenly Quine called her new housing at the Central California Women’s Facility in Chowchilla a “torture unit.” She said she’s unnecessarily isolated from other inmates and denied basic items.

State officials say she’s being treated like other female inmates. All initially are denied privileges like razors and TVs as they are evaluated.

Quine, 57, had the surgery she had long sought in January and was moved from a men’s prison last month. She said she is being treated as if she’s a newly arrived inmate and denied rehabilitation programs and privileges even though she’s been serving a life sentence since 1981.

Quine is housed alone in a cell but said she still has no privacy to perform required intimate post-operative procedures and is enduring “a restrictive isolation” that is pushing her toward anxiety, depression and sadness.

Her beard and mustache are having a “huge impact on day to day life” and are making the transition to life as a woman more difficult, she wrote in a filing received Friday at the court.

The department has “no legitimate penological objective but harassment” in denying shaving access, she wrote. Quine asked the federal judge overseeing her lawsuit to order prison officials to provide electrolysis to remove her facial hair, or at least a razor. [snip]

Just what in hell did IT think that move would bring? Acceptance? Sometimes you get a bit more than what you wanted.

Transgender Child Rapist Gets Sent To a Women’s Prison After Complaining of ‘Emotional Issues’

British authorities just moved a man convicted of raping two little girls to an all-female prison, all because he decided he was a “she.”

Martin Ponting, now known as “Jessica Winfield,” was just moved to a female prison after complaining he’d been “victimized by staff and inmates because she was at that time a male transsexual,” The Independent reported Monday. The 50-year-old father of three had apparently written to the prisoner’s newspaper back in 2007, complaining he was experiencing a “lack of understanding and empathy” because of his gender issues. [snip]

“She” is worrying about getting her ass dead. Child molesters don’t get nice treatment from other inmates in the joint. They get dead rather fast.

Nets Demand Evidence 123 Times, Scold Nunes for Giving It

When President Trump made his claim that President Obama “wiretapped” Trump Tower during the presidential campaign, the media demanded evidence. Since Trump’s initial tweet on March 4, the evening news shows of ABC, CBS and NBC have called on the White House to provide more evidence a grand total of 123 times.

But when House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes briefed the President, and the press, revealing that Trump associates’ names hadn’t been redacted from intelligence reports, the networks changed their tone.

According to Nunes, the Trump associates hadn’t been the target of surveillance. However, their conversations were picked up in the process, and then their identities weren’t masked as is usually the protocol with American citizens.

Nunes’s revelation didn’t prove the President’s wiretapping claims, but it did change the network news’s tone on releasing evidence. Before Nunes, the evening news shows were full of examples of demands for evidence to be made public. [snip]

The Jackasses have no basis for complaining about anything. They had their chance during the 2016 election, instead they ran a loser, and had no program for the betterment of the country.

After New Surveillance Claims, Partisan Nets Instead Whine Over Trump’s ‘Baseless’ ‘Fiction’

In the wake of explosive new claims from Congressman Devin Nunes that Donald Trump and aides were surveilled during the presidential transition, the partisan networks on Thursday circled back to focus on the President’s “baseless,” “false,” “fictional” tweets. ABC, CBS and NBC also questioned the credibility of the House chairman who brought the information to the President.

On CBS This Morning, Major Garrett opened his report by reminding, “For weeks, the White House has fiercely defended the fiction that President Obama had Trump Tower wiretapped.” Later, the journalist underlined, “The President was asked if he felt vindicated about his false claim that former President Obama ordered wiretapping of his Trump Tower phones.”

Downplaying the charge that the intelligence agencies shared information about Trump and his aides, Garrett pushed the Democratic agenda: “The House Chairman of the Committee overseeing the investigation into Russian meddling into the 2016 election says he’s found something, just not wiretapping.” [snip]

Sen. Graham: ‘Just Let Obamacare Collapse’

As Republicans prepare to vote on their health care bill, which does not fully repeal Obamacare, a number of Republicans say it’s a mistake to put their names to the plan:
“Just let Obamacare collapse, then challenge the Democrats to come in and help us fix the mess they created,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Fox News Friday morning, as lawmakers debated the latest iteration of the bill on the House floor.

“President Trump’s going to be judged by the outcome of the legislation, and what I see in the House, I don’t think this legislation is going to move the ball in the right direction.” [snip]

Ryan pulled that crap ObamaCare lite bill off the table. Let the Jackasses deal with ObamaCare and the debacle that is coming on like a Pacific typhoon. Any new government legislation for insurance should keep the Government out of the business. There isn’t anything that operating that the government cannot make worse or destroy totally.

Trump Supporter Closes Computer Repair Shop to Move to a ‘Red State’ Following Threats

A conservative business owner in Lake Oswego, Ore., is packing up and heading to a “red state” following threats for his part in organizing a pro-Trump march.

Kevin Kerwin, known as “Kevin the Geek,” ran a computer repair shop in a town neighboring the historic, left-leaning Portland. Over the years, Kerwin has gained national attention for the conservative signs he has posted outside of his shop.

In 2012, a sign plastered on his storefront called former President Obama an “INCOMPETENT LOUSY EXCUSE FOR A PRESIDENT” in light of his “you didn’t build that” remarks. Kerwin was reportedly assaulted at the time for his sign.

A more recent display he set up outside his repair shop condemned all “ignorant liberals,” including celebrity Bruce Springsteen.

The sign told liberals to “go straight to hell”:

“To All Ignorant Liberals including Bruce Springsteen…
The 4 People Who Kidnapped & Tortured a Disabled Teenager Just Because He Supports Donald Trump
Just Shows Everyone You are a Party of Complete Morons I’m Embarrassed to Call You Americans
Go Straight to Hell Where You Belong. We’ve had it With You Idiots.”

At the time, Kerwin told Willamette Week, “Since the election, liberals have been burning down Portland, smashing cars, crying like babies, calling they got the popular vote when everyone knew it was the electoral vote, and crying and crying… And then when I saw that video of that kid getting tortured I said, ‘Screw you all, I hate you.’”

It appears Kerwin has finally become fed up enough to leave.

Rapper to Trump: ‘Shut Your Punk A** Up Before We Pimp’ Melania

Snoop Dogg recently pulled a gun on Donald Trump in a music video, and, then, his nephew threatened the First Lady. But the networks didn’t mention it.

When pop icon and weed aficionado Snoop Dogg recorded his latest music video, he targeted the president – literally and figuratively. But when Trump commented that the same action aimed at Barack Obama would have gotten the rapper in hot water, a Twitter tussle ensued. That’s when Bow Wow – Snoop Dogg’s nephew – got involved.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, Bow Wow threatened: “Ayo @realDonaldTrump shut your punk ass up talking shit about my uncle @SnoopDogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us.”

Although news outlets called out the New York Times reporter who labelled Melania a hooker in February, there was no major media condemnation of Bow Wow. [snip]

Such a class act these fools are. And you wonder why they run around shooting one another on the streets? What else can they do. Hell, C.H.U.D.s have more in common with humans.

ABC, NBC Vilify Trump’s Budget Cuts, Hurting the Poor and Cancer Research

The Big Three networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) pulled out all the stops and sharpened their knives for their effort to tear into the White House’s budget proposal on Thursday. President Trump has unveiled his first budget proposal covering all the things the federal government pays for and how he wants to spend the money,” announced anchor Lester Holt during NBC Nightly News, “There’s a lot more money for the military but there are critics who say popular programs and the poor would pay the price.

It’s the primary promise of the Trump presidency,” reporter Peter Alexander declared after Holt’s announcement. “A budget blueprint spending nearly $60 billion more on defense, Homeland Security and Veterans’ care offset by deep and in some cases unprecedented cuts,” he seemed to whine, “The State Department slashed by 29% targeting foreign aid. The environmental protection agency sliced by 31% including programs to combat climate change.” [snip]

The big losers in the President’s budget? The EPA, the State Department, and education. And you might be seeing less of this guy,” she noted as she played a clip of Sesame Street’s Big Bird and other Muppets singing. “The big winners? Military spending a whopping $54 billion request. Veteran Affairs and Homeland Security,” she said.

Bruce was the only reporter to interview a supporter of the cuts, but it was just some random woman in a parking lot somewhere, who told her, “I know cutting back on different things kind of hurts, but I would say our national security is more important.”

Almost hypocritically, Alexander closed out his report by slamming the President. “What the President’s proposal doesn’t do? Balance the budget,” he chided. It’s rather ridiculous for anyone in the liberal media to suddenly care are the deficit and the national debt. They didn’t care when Obama jacked up the national debt to almost $20 TRILLION.

Now why should the Left complain about a budget cut? They never complained about the huge debt Obama ran up in eight year. You would think some restraint would be welcomed.

Stumped! Planned Parenthood VP Can’t Say If Abortion ‘Ends’ a Life

A Fox News host just pressured Planned Parenthood to answer something the liberal media never ask: What does abortion end? Is it a life – a human being?

On Monday, Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight to discuss the new GOP health-care plan that promises to defund her organization, which is America’s largest abortion provider. Laguens argued that the definitions of abortion and human life depend on each individual’s position. At the same time, she refused to answer, as an individual, the question “what is being aborted?”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson first asked Laguens about Planned Parenthood’s refusal to halt abortion. While The New York Times reported that the White House “proposed preserving federal payments” to Planned Parenthood if it cut abortion from its “services,” Planned Parenthood representatives rejected the offer.

“Why is abortion so important to Planned Parenthood that you’re willing to forgo a half-a-billion dollars in federal subsidies?” Carlson asked. [snip]

Carlson challenged Laguens in a follow-up question.

“Why include abortion if the [other] services provided are necessary?” he continued. “A lot of people think it’s murder. Why don’t you just take that out and then taxpayers can feel good about subsidizing the rest of your services?”

“Taxpayers don’t pay for abortion services,” she responded. “Women deserve access to the full range of reproductive health care and that includes safe, legal abortion.“

While the Hyde Amendment generally bars federal funding (from taxpayers) from abortion, pro-life leaders argue money is fungible – or that Planned Parenthood could offset costs with public funds to free up other resources for abortion. [snip]

All this because your elected turkeys wouldn’t do the job they were put in DC to do. All they had to do was vote on abortion, up or down. They put it off until it got into the courts and unelected individuals MADE law, something that they are NOT empowered to do under the Constitution. Since then we have had a simmering war between the Leftists and Americans.

‘This Is Why Hillary Lost’: Twitter Hilariously Mocks Chelsea’s Spinach Pancakes

‘I’ve Got Friends in Safe Spaces’: Country Duo Turns Hit Into Anti-Snowflake Anthem

Warning: if you’re a liberal, this could trigger you.

The Garth Brooks hit “Friends in Low Places” has now been turned into an anthem for conservatives.
The country duo of Chad Prather and Steve “Mudflap” McGrew turned the iconic 1990 song into “Friends in Safe Spaces.”

Some of the funny lines include…

– I’ve got friends in safe spaces. If you don’t go with us, then you must be racist.

– Come on in and let’s be cozy. Showin’ off participation trophies. [snip]

Anything that melts a Snowflakes security blanket is welcome.
