President Donald J. Trump speaks to the March for Life from the Rose Garden...

first time a sitting president has spoken by live-stream video directly to the March for Life that is routinely ignored by the MSM, while they champion vile women who march to kill their babies. 

It's not "choice" - it's pro-death.

Memo: FISA Abuse?...

Justice Department,FBI, and Hillary Clinton under the microscope.

FISA abuses detailed in memo!

And it doesn't look good.

Actually, it's probably going to be very, very bad.

However, don't get too excited, because the libtards will absolutely ignore it all -  and so will a whole bunch of ordinary dirt dwellers.

Will it get buried?

Wouldn't surprise me one teeny bit.

I already checked the top three alphabets plus Huff and Puff and none of them have anything to say about this memo. Not. One. Word.


Following video:

Chris Farrell, Judicial Watch Director of Investigations: "Abuse of process, abuse by agents, and the abuse by the Department of Justice."

Lou Dobbs: "These are bad people doing horrible things in the name of the United States government." 

Adrienne:  "Where is Eliot Ness when we need him?"

I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate. It was & .


FISA surveillance program: What is it and why is it so controversial?

Tucker Carlson to Chicago Alderman George Cardenas: "What a LOATHSOME Little Demagogue You Are!"...

perhaps Alderman Cardenas should review the statistics on shootings in Chicago before he worries about taking care of the illegals in his city.

Chicago January to Date:

Shot & Killed: 18
Shot & Wounded: 86
Total Shot: 104
Total Homicides: 21

Chicago Final 2017 Totals

Shot & Killed: 624
Shot & Wounded: 2937
Total Shot: 3561
Total Homicides: 677

Does that qualify Chicago to be a shithole?

Followed (at 7:35) by Congresswoman Martha McSally (R - Arizona) and her take on what the demon-crats want for immigration reform.

Fake News Awards: Trump is like your favorite fun uncle...

who told you jokes, tickled you, and fed you candy.

Can you remember when the people of the great U.S. of A have had this much fun?

After 8 years of a scold in the WH, we've earned the fun.

Below are the winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards:
1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.
2. ABC News’ Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.
3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.
4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.
5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.
6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.
7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”
8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.
9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.
10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.
11. And last, but not least: “RUSSIA COLLUSION!” Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!

Trump's Fake News Awards Today on Twitter and what I discovered yesterday...

I discovered that you do not put a bumper cover for a 2008 Sonata inside the Sonata to which it will affixed in the future.

Short Form:

I ordered a rear bumper cover off of ebay (already painted in the proper color) for my car.
It had to be picked up at FedEx Ground in the Industrial Park in Spokane Valley since it was "oversized" and they couldn't even get it to Couer d'Alene.
Two FexEx employees and I worked for an hour to find a way to get that in the car.
No dice
So today, I drive back to Spokane with the van (as soon as we jump it) to try again.
On the upside the FedEx employees said it as the best wrapped bumper cover they've ever seen.

Fake News Awards

The lying, fallacious, mendacious, odious, loathsome, malicious, vile, obnoxious, evil, and arrogant left is having a complete meltdown.  That really is all you need to know.

Score one for the red team!

Almost a week and we're still talking about shit...

this has become beyond ridiculous.

Only the crazy family that starved and imprisoned their gazillion kids is managing to push it out of the headlines.

I have mega errands to run.

But first:  A libtard bellwether on Facecrap, who is a fan of both Castro and Che, is on a trip to Cuba.  The libtard is leaving today.  Her picture title?  Adios Utopia! Good bye 🇨🇺 Cuba! 
Definition of Utopia:  An imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect. 
And there are still people who don't recognize liberalism as a mental disorder.  Oy vey!

While I'm gone, go read some much more interesting stuff from my friends on the webz:

HUNDREDS of Twitter Employees Paid to View "Everything You Post," & Private "Sex Messages"...

good grief - sex messages?

What the hell is wrong with people?

 I keep asking and asking that same question.

What kind of an idiot thinks sending a picture of his privates to a woman is going to impress her?  Guys - your privates are not fine art.  They're actually sort of silly looking.  And if that impresses some woman, you don't want her anyway, or, then again, you may be perfect for each other.

And women are becoming just as low and scurvy as the men they wish to emulate with so-called feminists being the worse.   

Now people are screaming for government intervention.  Last I checked it was a private company and what they're doing is not illegal.

I have a better plan:


From Youtube:
Project Veritas has released undercover footage of Twitter Engineers and employees admitting that Twitter employees view "everything you post" on their servers, including private "sex messages," and "d*ck pics." The engineers also admit that Twitter analyzes this information to create a "virtual profile" of you which they sell to advertisers.

Trump declares January 15th Martin Luther King Day...

I thought that was already a done deal.

But, I confess to not paying much attention to his special day since I don't work at a bank or the post office.

I don't have anything against the guy.  I actually liked his approach.  As far as his personal life we're back to God sending the right people at the right time.

Would MLK be appalled if he could witness the rioting blacks of today? Absolutely.

Which brings me to an article I saw at Daily Mail back on the 8th.  A school in Dallas was having a "Breakfast with Dads" event.  They realized that many of the kids didn't have fathers in the home or in their life, so they asked for 50 volunteers to help out.  Six hundred men showed up.

The problems in the inner cities that are plagued by fatherless homes leading to poverty, crime, and dysfunction could be solved in one generation (about 20 years) if these same 600 men committed to keep showing up.

There's lots of artsy type stuff in Today's Deals at Amazon.  I must show restraint! But you, dear reader, should throw off all caution to the wind and buy a sh*tload of stuff from Amazon.  I will thank you from the bottom of my heart. (Okay - only kiddddiiinnng.

John Hawkins is claiming to shut down Right Wing News...

far as I can see both his website and Facecrap page are still there.

Disclaimer:  I am not a John Hawkins fan.  I quit reading him  years ago when he wrote some egregious article about how smart he was and how all of us dirt people were too stupid to have a successful blog.

That was back in July of 2011:

Debt ceiling Kabuki theater continues, the Huffington Post causes migraines, and John Hawkins is an idiot...

In his "woe is me" screed over at Townhall,  How Conservatives Are Being Destroyed by Facebook, Twitter and Google Without Even Realizing It, he points out what Project Veritas is bringing to light about Facecrap, YouTube, and Google are shadow banning conservative sites.
Cute kitteh picture instead of John Hawkins

First he reminds us how important, popular, and smart he and his sites are. Then he tells us that because of the machinations of Facecrap and Google he has to shut down his site Right Wing News. Most important, John Hawkins reminds us he is still an idiot.

Hawkins just started a new site called Grumpy Sloth (no link on purpose) where he follows his formula "number posts" ie:  10 Things to Do While on the Toilet, 8 Ways to Kill Your Wife,  4 Ways to Have Meaningful Conversation With Broccoli, and 20 Dumbest Bloggers of All Time.

The last article could list John Hawkins as number one.

Message to John:  I am not being destroyed, and I realize exactly what is going on in social media. You, however, need to get your inflated ego under control and realize people can talk to their broccoli without your help.

Your Twitter feed has a link to your Townhall article with exactly one retweet in 16 hours.  Ummmmmmmm, most popular blogger, evah?

You state:
Social media IS the new public square. It’s the place you go when you want to reach out and find an audience.
Let me tell you what I (who is but a small insignificant nothing burger of a dirt person) thinks:

Social media is quickly becoming irrelevant.  People are tired of having Facecrap rule their lives and reading supercilious bloggers like you who tell us how we're being destroyed.  The MSM is already irrelevant and all but the most rabid leftwingers know that it's a cesspit shithole of blatant lies.

I have to agree with one of your commenters at Townhall:
Moron snowflake conservative live-blogs his own meltdown, whataputz, no?

Let's exercise... w/Update

something besides our mental capacity for ferreting out fake news.

As soon as my breakfast settles, I will be hauling out my exercise mat and starting the next part of my Weight Watchers' journey - improving my core strength and beefing up my legs.

Since I was a professional dancer and have mostly held jobs that required me to be in an upright and locked position for extended periods of time, my muscle memory makes working on my legs quick work.

Which is a good thing since I'm tired of requiring a skyhook to get me off my knees.

The Plank

High on my endeavor list today will be to attempt a plank.  It looks deceptively easy, but the experts all say it is anything but easy.

I've provided a very good video demonstration of a plank.  To please the men, I've picked out a video with two very healthy and pretty women.

How about we watch another pretty girl demonstrating squats?


I did a full plank

Later I will go to the store using my new 3DTriSport Walking 3D Pedometer.  I finally had time to program it.  The company very wisely has made a video to help with the set up.  So far with the few tests I've done around the house, this thing is 100% spot on because it's programmed with your personal step length. My step length is fairly short, but I'm a speedy little critter. When you're 5'2" you don't dare walk slowly or you'll be crushed.  

 It also calculates calories burned, total distance walked, and a bunch of other stuff.  Best $22.99 I've spent in a long time. 

If you wish to MAGA, you must be healthy, strong, and keep your guns clean!

So, get out there and MAGA everyone.

Shitting on us one shithole at time...

are you kidding me?

(I debated with myself for about 37 seconds on putting asterisks in the word "shit." Obviously, I decided to do so would be disingenuous and silly.)

There are 226 sources in my Feedly, and close to a hundred sources bookmarked.

And almost to a one all they can talk about is whether Trump called some shithole country a shithole country.  I rather doubt he did - even in private. But, hey - that's just me.  Either way, I don't give a shit.

So - what are they trying to deflect us from?  What is it they don't want us to see?  My guess is DACA.  What's yours?

It's Friday.

Yep, I know - master of the obvious.

Just to give you a bit of fun, or an appalling peek into the people who hold power in our country, take a gander at Nancy Pelosi and ask yourself, "Are we in deep shit, or what?"

Project Veritas: Twitter manipulates views? And you didn't know that?...

explain to me exactly how you didn't know that?

Facecrap does the same thing.

I just suffered through the first Project Veritas undercover video, made all the worse by the PV "journalist" having one of the worst cases of vocal fry I've ever heard, and throwing in a bit of up-speak to further annoy.  I suppose that was necessary to make her sound stupid and disarm the blabbermouth engineer from Twitter, although I suspect that it wouldn't take much for this fool to babble away his job to a pretty girl.  No doubt the fool won't have a job in the very, very near future.

So this Twitter dude calls Trump a "terrible human being" while admitting that Twitter uses the personal information of it's subscribers in nefarious ways.  And then he goes on to say that "basically" everyone at Twitter agrees that Trump is a maniac.

NB:  If you are throwing around the word "basically" like popcorn in a movie theater, stop doing it right now!  It ranks right up there with peppering your speech with "like" and "you know" - both in heavy rotation with these people.  And while vocal fry will not necessarily hurt your vocal cords, it makes people want to slap you.  As to up-speak, also known as moronic interrogative (for good reason) - not everything is a question.

Some highlights of the first video:

There's five thousand words to describe rednecks?
"Is a majority of the algorithms against conservatives or liberals?"  
"I would say that the majority of it are for Republicans, because they're all from Russia and they wanted Trump to win..."
The majority of Twitter employees accessed are Indians.  How many are H-1B employees?

Shadow Banning

Video 2 exposes "shadow banning."  I keep asking this question, but........... are there any sentient human beings out there who don't already know this is going on with Twitter, Facecrap, Instagram, and Reddit?  Confession: Until this morning I didn't even know what Reddit was.  I briefly read up on it and visited their front page, and still don't know (or care) what the purpose of Reddit is. 


Ban a way of talking?

It's quite obvious to me that my articles posted to Facecrap are probably being shadow banned.  Only the same 3 or 4 people respond to the posts. It is also not lost on me that my local very conservative friends are rarely in my feed - in fact, almost never.

I've been concerned with the amount of time I spend on the internet.  It's not healthy and it's affecting my life in negative ways.  Now I know that sounds weird emanating from someone who maintains a blog which depends on technology, and I do enjoy my commenters and have formed some very nice long distance friendships.

It also sounds weird since the only way I earn a pittance is by being an Amazon affiliate.  There were three choices available to me for making a tiny bit of money off of this blog - donations (not happening), ads (nope), or Amazon commissions.  I like Amazon and chose that as my way.  I view it as a win-win as I often post Amazon personal favorites with reviews.

I also know that when I spend time away from my computer like I did yesterday at history club and running some errands, I return home refreshed and full of energy.  I don't have a smart phone, not because I think they're evil, but because I simply don't need one, so I'm not tethered to the internet 24/7.  But, I also think the majority of people who do have them also don't really need them. That's just my opinion, so please, if you have a smart phone there is no need to justify it to me.  It's okay - really. 

Lately, there have been many articles about our dependence on technology, in particular social media, and how it negatively affects our lives.  The following is the latest and, along with the newest videos from Project Veritas, has spurred my decision to severely limit my time online. 

I've already curtailed the number of sites I visit and stories I pursue since most of them are part of the great echo chamber of the inter-webs.

Your smartphone📱is making you👈 stupid, antisocial 🙅 and unhealthy 😷. So why can't you put it down❔⁉️

Does Trump act like a child or is he childlike?...

there's a difference.

The fake journalist who wrote a fake Trump book pushed the point that just about everyone who knew Trump called him "childlike."

I don't remember hearing that he acted like a child.

When we think of someone acting like a child our immediate vision is usually of a kid having a tantrum, being demanding, or exhibiting all manner of recalcitrant behavior.

From the day that Trump rode down that escalator to announce his run for president, the first thing I noticed was his enthusiasm. 

And over the year of following him and carefully studying his behavior, I was constantly impressed with his approach to people and events.

Trump was genuinely nice to people.  He loved hearing their stories. He complimented them, thanked them, and was just generally enthusiastic. If he toured a factor full of heavy equipment he oohed and aahed over the earth moving machines.  A word I heard over and over was "Wow."

Today, as our society becomes more nihilistic and cynical, Trump was refreshing.  If during that year I was feeling anxious or depressed, a Trump rally always perked me up and made me want to be more like him.

Trump displays many characteristics of childlike enthusiasm.  Unlike most of us he has not had that quality beat out of him by someone telling him to "grow up."

If not getting excited at the first snow of the year, a seed sprouting through the soil, or a beautiful sunrise or sunset is what it takes to be an adult, I'll opt for childlike.

I'll opt for asking why not instead of why.
“Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Now go out and have an enthusiastic MAGA day.

Trump and the National Anthem: Let's start the day with Newt Gingrich who puts everything in perspective...

because do you really care what a bunch of lefty malcontents think?

Seriously - if Trump cured cancer tomorrow the libtards would complain that cancer doctors were being put out of business.
Confirmation Bias: is the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one's preexisting beliefs or hypotheses.  It is a type of cognitive bias and a systematic error of inductive reasoning. People display this bias when they gather or remember information selectively, or when they interpret it in a biased way. The effect is stronger for emotionally charged issues and for deeply entrenched beliefs.
We heard cheers, they heard jeers.  We see a man standing up for the National Anthem, they see a man with a advanced case of Alzheimer who can't remember the words. Never occurred to the fools that there was an obvious delay in the music.  Duh!

Leader of the pack was the Daily Mail, which has turned into a major Trump bashing publication.  So why do I go there?  Simple.  They have great pictures, and who doesn't love pictures?

There is not one libtard of my acquaintance who I consider to have enough brain power to challenge my kitchen sponge.  To a one, some of whom are safely ensconced in teaching positions, they are arrogant, closed minded, and chock full of lefty slogans.  Ignorance and arrogance seem to be kissing cousins in the world of the libtard.

How do you do combat in a the lefty war on truth? 

You laugh at them.

Loudly and often.

Arrogant people hate to have people, in particular people they consider to be their inferiors, laugh at them.  Isn't that reason enough?

Now listen to Gingrich explain Trump, Reagan, Bannon, Stephen Miller, and Jeff Sessions.  And please note Laura Ingraham (also note she is modestly dressed) asks questions and lets Gingrich answer. How refreshing.

I hope Gingrich gets your day started on a positive note.

No go out there and MAGA!

Golden Globes gives standing O to woman abuser Tonya Harding*...

I guess time really isn't up - right hypocrites?

Yesterday at the Golden Globes, the Hollywood elites adorned themselves with pins stating "Time's Up" against sexual harassment and assault against woman.  Thank goodness Tonya Harding only had Nancy Kerrigan's leg wacked instead of pinching her bottom. 

I thought for just a nano-second that maybe, just maybe, the elites were coming a teeny bit out of their self righteous "we're smarter and better than you" coma.

 They awarded Gary Oldman the award for his performance in Darkest Hour.  And The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, the Amazon TV series, won for best in comedy or musical, along with its star Rachel Brosnahan, which I thought were very worthy of the honor. 

Darkest Hour, as I said previously, was wonderful, and I just started watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel for the second time. It really is a brilliant piece of comedy.  

When Allison Janney won Best Supporting Actress for playing the mother of disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in I,Tonya, she thanked Harding, who was in the audience, for "sharing her story." The crowd erupted in applause for a dump of a woman who admits she knew there would be an attack on rival ice skater, Nancy Kerrigan, at the Cobo Arena in 1994.

'What this movie did is tell a story about class in America, tell a story about the disenfranchised, tell the story about a woman who was not embraced for her individuality, tell a story about truth and the perception of truth in the media and truths we all tell ourselves." source

I've been a rabid figure skating enthusiast since being a little girl.  And, while not a fan of the skating style of either Nancy Kerrigan or Tonya Harding, what happened to Kerrigan was horrible and appalling.

Ever since the incident Harding has portrayed herself as the victim of a abusive mother and husband.  Sorry, Tonya - you were an adult and fully responsible for your actions. 

To hear Hollywood elites spewing crap about truth in the media is laughable and ludicrous at best, and at worst declares to the world what absolute idiots and hypocrites they are. 

These people who made millions off the exploitation of people, and in many cases were willing participants as individuals to further their own careers and line their pocket books, have the unmitigated gall to stand up in front of millions of people and lecture us about honesty and integrity.  They're nothing but a bunch of frauds. 

I just wonder how Nancy Kerrigan felt about the whole disgusting affair. 

*In the interest of honest reporting, I really have no idea if Harding received a standing O since I haven't watched an award show in decades.  It just sounded good, and since it's working so well for Michael Wolff, I thought I'd give it a whirl.
