Enjoying A Little Nukie
History was made yesterday when, for the first time since our nation became a nation, Democrats filibustered an exemplary Supreme Court Nominee because – and we’ve got plenty of political scientists and analysts to back us up on this – they’re complete and total assholes.
The only way around this epic act of douchebaggery was for Senate Republicans to invoke the so-called “nuclear option,” which – disappointingly – did not require inviting Democrats to “a picnic and special surprise” in the remotest corner of Nevada while a gleeful Donald Trump punched their coordinates into his suitcase nuclear launch device.
Rather, it involved changing Senate rules to allow a Supreme Court nominee to be confirmed with a simple majority of 51 votes, rather than requiring the 60 votes which has traditionally been the standard. And under this rule, we should see standout nominee Judge Gorsuch confirmed for the Supreme Court sometime today.
We would say that the Democrats are losing their freaking minds over this, only that ship sailed a long time ago.
And while we’re not wild about this change in Senate rules (which will give additional power to the Democrats next time they’re in charge), we think some form of “nuking the Democrats” (metaphorically speaking) might as well become our nation’s default policy for the next four years.
Shut them up, shut them out, and shut them down.
And if they make a stink, we just put our blast goggles back on and ka-BLOOEY! Because if, within our own halls of government, we can’t find a little peace in our time…we’ll settle for little pieces.

It now appears that one of the chief mischief-makers behind the surveillance and information leaks related to the Trump administration is Obama crony and serial liar Susan Rice. According to a growing number of reports, she asked intelligence agencies to break with traditional policies and tell her the names of Trump associates who were (ahem) “accidentally” caught on surveillance tapes, as well as the content of their conversations.
This would, of course, only be a problem if Ms. Rice was a reprehensible person working in cahoots with a cabal of Machiavellian anti-Americans who intended to use the information for political purposes. In other words, this is one hell of a problem.
Rice has adamantly declared that she did nothing wrong, adding “I leaked nothing to nobody.” Which, by the inflexible rules pertaining to the use of double negatives, means that she leaked everything to everybody. No doubt with considerable help from Barack Obama, who spontaneously (why does that word keep coming up in association with Susan Rice?) changed the rules pertaining to inter-agency sharing of raw intelligence just before leaving office in order to ensure as much damage to the incoming Trump administration as possible.
And speaking of Barry, just where is he while all this damning information is coming out…?
AND FROM THE VAULT…
When it comes to forgiving and forgetting, we don’t do either.

Public Broadcasting CEO: People ‘Yearn For Content They Can Trust’
Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) President and CEO Patricia de Stacy Harrison says “people in this country yearn for content they can trust” and that’s among the reasons taxpayer funding is necessary for the organization.
On Tuesday, Harrison testified at a hearing on President Trump’s proposed cuts to public broadcasting, where she claimed the CPB is vital.
“So, people in this country yearn for content they can trust. And where are we right now? We are living in this environment of fake news,” Harrison said.
“I have kids, I have grandchildren, we are very proud of our commitment through CPB, the appropriation, to funding fact-based journalism.”
“We have a priority for editorial integrity,” Harrison added.
You are allowed to laugh now.
Fact-based journalism that includes Charlie Rose prefacing a question to Bill Clinton with, “Let’s assume that you make it to heaven.”
Editorial integrity that allows PBS host Tavis Smiley to claim there are far more Christian terrorists than Muslim ones.
Or Smiley’s fact-based stance that by not holding a confirmation vote on Merrick Garland for a Supreme Court justice seat, the GOP will reconsider the ban on slavery and the right for women to vote.
There are plenty of other examples that CPB pushes a liberal agenda over the airwaves with taxpayer dollars.
Surprisingly absent from Harrison’s “vital” reasons for continued taxpayer funding of public broadcasting, was her $434,364 salary that she made in 2015.
Is there anything that a Liberal/Progressive idea for “improving” something that doesn’t destroy that which it intended to improve? To wit, examine the following.
Female athletes crushed by ‘women who were once men’
Transgenders dominate in weightlifting, track, wrestling, football, basketball, mixed martial arts
You’ve heard the expression, “Boys will be boys.” But what happens when a brawny boy wants to be one of the girls – fiercely competing with females in weightlifting, brutally tackling girls on the football field or even dealing powerful knockout punches to ladies in a mixed martial-arts cage?
It’s now happening across America and around the world.
Biological males are joining women’s teams, smashing records and dominating in sports such as weightlifting, softball, cycling, track, wrestling, football, volleyball, dodgeball, handball, cricket, golf, basketball and mixed martial arts.
The movement for “equality” has apparently inspired transgender athletes to join teams of their preferred gender. And that often means biological males are competing against biological females on women’s teams. But in the world of sports, critics argue, equality between the sexes simply doesn’t exist. Physiologically speaking, there’s a gender gap between men and women that cannot be erased. [snip]
So why do men have some athletic advantages over women?
Ohio University biological sciences lecturer Chris Schwirian told Runner’s World: “Faster men’s times for 100 to 800 meters are mostly due to men, on average, having greater muscle mass – and a larger portion of it is fast-twitch, which allows them to generate greater force, speed and anaerobically produced energy. At all distances beyond 800 meters, the main reason for the gap is men’s higher aerobic capacity [VO2max], on average, which is due to their typically having less body fat, more hemoglobin and muscle mass, and larger hearts and lungs than women.” [snip]
Since these physical and physiological factors give most men a clear competitive edge in sports, is it fair or even safe for biological males – with larger muscle mass, hearts and lungs and greater strength, acceleration and speed – to compete against girls and women?
“If men can claim to be women and invade a sport that only women are allowed to compete in, then it’s a safe bet men will win,” writes the Federalist’s Brandon Morse. “All the accolades, rewards, and recognition will be taken from the women who rightfully deserve them and given to a man who essentially cheated by putting on makeup, injecting himself with hormones, and saying he’s a woman.”
Allowing biological males to compete against women is not only unfair and dangerous to women, it’s worse than that, according to David Kupelian, WND managing editor and author of “The Snapping of the American Mind.”
“The insanity of this affects not just the transgendered individual and the women athletes thus victimized,” he said. “It also contributes to a sort of mass delusion infecting our whole society in which, thanks to the influence of the powerful LGBT movement, everybody now has to either affirm the absurd and crazy – that a man who is essentially a female impersonator can fairly compete against women – or they have to suffer abuse and persecution as bigots just for speaking the truth.”
Kupelian said these “grotesquely unfair matchups” between female athletes and powerful men who identify as women is just one more unfortunate aspect of a revolutionary movement sweeping the nation.
“This sexual anarchy movement – which, for example, recently announced dozens of brand-new genders that never existed in the history of humanity until a few years ago – is really part of a revolutionary political movement rooted in a mixture of personal trauma, utopian ideology and demonic forces that is unfortunately ever-expanding in today’s America,” he said.
