    I didn’t want to fight with Bray because he’s a great writer and patriot.

    But I am so glad you said this.

    I concede that Rush seemed to be leaning to Cruz but Rush is a professional. His bias is rarely shown in cases like this, especially a Republican primary.

    I wouldn’t say he was in love with Trump at the beginning but he was never anti-Trump like, say, Mark Levin.

    Distinct difference between the two as regards their treatment of Trump.

    Mark Levin is sure having trouble eating crow, while I’m at it.

    OMB Rand Paul read John McCain the riot act, he positively toasted the man!

    Said that John McCain’s method of toppling bad regimes across the world has not worked, that if John McCain had his way America would go bankrupt just buying weapons of war.

    Rand Paul said McCain is just angry at Trump’s victory and on and on....kudos to Rand Paul.

    Yeah, I don’t like John McCain but I see some other Senators don’t like him either.

    I know some people think Rush was against Trump but not many people listen to as much talk radio as I do.

    Not that I don’t have a life or anything.

    But ask me about Rush, Mark Levin and Sean Hannity. Plus the local guys....and on and on.

    Rush was never an anti-Trump guy....anybody says so is passing fake news.

    Now for a while Rush was non-committal. I do know that during the campaign Rush was more for Ted Cruz, at least with his commentary. Even with that, Rush was never unfair to Trump, not at all.

    And at this point, of course, Rush is an obvious and enthusiastic Trump supporter.

    Well why wouldn’t he be? Trump is doing an outstanding job, just like Rush has been asking for for many, many years.

    John McCain

    I got to rant.

    I am sick and tired of John McCain. He has nothing going for him, he once got the support of the Republican base, to include me.

    And now he shows the world how very disloyal he is.

    First, McCain on Meet the Depressed waxes on about the need for a free press and how Russia are the bad guys.

    This all as a snark against the Trump administration what with Trump attacking the press and let us not forget that McCain was the one who turned over that stupid story about Trump peeing on Russian prostitutes.

    It is really time for him to go….please God, let McCain retire in good health and enjoy the end of his years instead of making ours miserable.

    Yeah I know he passed that campaign finance reform legislation and I go to bed every night feeling safe from the Russians because of it.

    Please God….let John McCain fade into the sunset.

    Well I read the article at your link.

    It pretty much sums up what I suspect. They DO have a recording of this innocent call.

    I read your commentary about Trump not being able to turn this back but I am sorry, but I disagree.

    A NSA nominee phones up a Russian ambassador to discuss things, like they all do. The ambassador asks about those silly sanctions Obama put in for messing up the American election and Flynn says something innocent I suspect, to the effect that they’ll deal with this later after the inauguration.

    So there’s a plan to have Pence go out and deny any conversation with Russia about those sanctions and right there I must wonder ....why Pence? Yes I love Pence and most times I would not question having him be questioned by press or talk show host. But why not Trump himself?

    Still and so, Flynn was evidently asked by Pence if he said anything on that call about sanctions and Flynn said No. I’m thinking Flynn probably didn’t think a tossed-aside comment such as they would deal with it after the inauguration was worth mention. I don’t know this and somewhere there is a tape of this conversation. But Flynn does not strike me as a blatant liar.

    So given that it’s all been explained, and your article as linked does a very good job, I still don’t know why Trump can’t stand up tall and say his incoming administration was buffaloed and they’re not throwing out a perfectly fine guy to give them a victory.

    For sure the Trump voters would understand.

    It’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Well the truth is, cousin Mike.....I wrote that blurb sometime last week, the day after it happened.

    Again, the truth is, now with a week worth of detail thrown at me, I do not believe any such thing.

    Because like much of America, I was confused about the Mike Flynn thing. In fact, I still don’t know what the real story is about Mike Flynn.

    I do know he is a good man and greatly admired by his colleagues.

    What I don’t quite get is why Trump, given that a bunch of laws were broken, doesn’t just change his mind and bring Flynn back on.

    Bad things happen to good people. I get that.

    But the really awful thing about this nonsense with my daughter is the gubmint keeps getting involved!

    I am finding out that there are a lot of people out there, loser-burgers who can only get what they perceive to be attention and affection by faking some tragedy/sickness.

    Starting soon I am going to begin my vindication tour.

    For now I sure hope they don’t destroy the most precious thing I have...my granddaughter.

    I say “they” because I include the gubmint as part of this cabal.

    And daughter knows how to use them, yes she does.

    I ALREADY WROTE A BOOK!!!

    Because I have known about my daughter’s strange affliction (tell you about the ticks later) since the late 90’s.

    So in 2005 I wrote a book, titled “Attention, Please!” and one of the characters keeps harming herself to....eh, get attention.

    They love drama.

    I still have the book and many have read it.

    Anyway, this Muncheusen.....here’s an example.....

    She pulls up her shirt and shows me two tick bites.

    OMG....these people LOVE LYME DISEASE!!!

    Because Lyme disease gives you so many different symptoms, man you only got to get Lyme disease once and you can faint, pretend fevers, stomach hurts, can’t move.....

    Two tick bites, right next to each other. What the hell, two ticks somehow found their way on her body, right next to each other mind you?

    Heh.

    All for the love of Lyme disease.

    I think the medicos around here are onto her but the gubmint gets money for abused women and do you know how much sympathy you get when you are being abused by mother, husband....and now granddaughter also being abused....

    She knows what moves the bureaucrats and she always....she ALWAYS wins.

    McCain has had his sneaky hands in all this anti-Trump nonsense.

    And to think we once supported this lying Republican John Kerry.

    I bet there’s a history on this man worse than the little bit we know.

    And, as always with John McCain, I remind you all of his most momentous political action.....CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM!

    I go to be every night happy and safe that McCain, in conjunction with another loser, got this passed.

    It means so much to me.

    Week Just Passed


    I write a column everyday called “Politics by Pat”. I’d give you the link to it but I have no idea how to link to a Facebook page. Before the end of day I will find out.

    Anyway, here’s my plan….below are all the posts I made last week, with the applicable dates.

    I figure it’s a good way to look over the events of the past week to prepare for that which might be covered on the Sunday political talk shows. Also, some gems you might enjoy, such as my critique of the grammy awards.

    There is no Monday entry, or will there ever be, because on Mondays I write a quick synopsis of the…TADA…Sunday political talk shows! Y’all don’t need that.

    But first, thank you AB for always doing a dependable live post. Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom and thank all yon commenters for fleshing out the political chatter and help to keep us straight.

    Tuesday-date-2/14/17-daily update


    So Michael Flynn resigned? Allegedly for a phone call he made to the Russian Ambassador?

    I think there’s waaaaaaay more to the story than that. I think Flynn was some kind of traitor and got caught.

    As a little gossip tidbit, please note that on E!’s Fashion Police last night, they analyzed and laughed and commented on every outfit worn to the grammies this past Sunday night.

    BUT NOT EVEN A WHISPER ABOUT THE INFAMOUS TRUMP MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN DRESS!

    This is because the singer who wore that dress went from a half a million down to like number 3! She’s beating out Lady Gaga and Beyonce!

    Heh. Much as they try, America still does not hate Trump as much as they do.

    Below my analysis of the recent grammy awards of 2017.

    It’s very simple. I absolutely HATED the Grammy award show.

    Let us begin with my being so tired of hearing Adele I wanted to scream.

    Know that I like Adele; have a few songs of hers on my playlists. But last night that voice got ole and let us not forget how she sang almost half an awful song than stopped everything to start it all over again.

    Now let me ask….WHO THE HELL IS JAMES CORDEN?

    Yeah I know he was the host last night but I never heard of him before. He wasn’t very funny and his Trump jokes fell very flat.

    Oh and how about this Joy Villa, someone else I never heard of before, but she wore that “Make America Great Again” dress and today her albums are in the top three! Up from a half million of the bottom. She’s got Beyonce and Lady Gaga beat!

    Heh. So all of America hates Trump do they?

    The best rock star voted was for David Bowie and the guy wasn’t even there to get the award.

    Couple of good things. Celine Dionne looked absolutely terrific and the tribute to the Beegees was a good one.

    Adele’s tribute to Michael Johnson was awful and who needs dopey Prince anymore now that he’s dead?

    Beyond that, every musical played on that show all sounded the same….loud with smoke and fire blowing behind the 45,000 backup dancers.

    Wednesday-date-2/15/17-daily update


    So Michael Flynn phoned up a Russian diplomat and when questioned about those silly sanctions put in by President Obama, on command from Hillary Clinton, Flynn pooh-poohed them and supposedly assured him that after the election the sanctions would be lifted.

    Somebody told VP Pence to announce this very publicly on a Sunday political talk show and Pence shouted to the world that no mention was made of sanctions in that telephonic conversation. Pence allegedly took this strong stance based on Flynn’s denial.

    Now I think, and it’s just a guess and a hunch, that somewhere they have that conversation on tape because somebody somewhere in that lying scheming Obama administration, not to mention Hillary’s state department hates Trump and is busy planning and plotting getting rid of him, never mind how the people voted.

    The Clintons and Obamas know they are better for us beyond our silly voting habits so they somehow taped everything being done by the incoming Trump administration. This is against the law but forget the law.

    Since they have what I think was probably a brief throwaway line about those stupid sanctions put on Russia for, heh, “stealing” our elections because goodness knows if not for the Russians Hillary would have rightfully run.

    With the Spector of this snippet of a conversation being played for America to hear, this with Pence now already on record as denying it all….well somebody had to be fired, or “resign”.

    And it wasn’t going to be the Vice President.

    They are determined people. They are determined to get rid of a lawfully elected president and who knows, maybe they will.

    Thursday-date-2/16/17-daily update


    Yesterday there was a vignette I shall describe which will illustrate the big difference between President Obama and President Trump. It was quite amazing.

    But first, HOW ABOUT THAT STOCK MARKET?!?!?!?

    Because even though the Snowflakes riot and try to overturn the results of a legal election….SNOWFLAKES DO NOT OWN STOCK!

    That stock market ain’t going up because of the Snowflakes or our 358 Intelligence Agencies leaking everywhere.

    That stock market is rising because we now have a President who wants to…..well, Make America Great Again!

    Now about that moment. So there was Bibi Netanyahu, you know, the premier of Israel that President Obama positively despised? Well by me Obama was a Muslim, come on. And Muslim’s hate Israel, everybody knows that.

    Sure, I’d rather have heathens who teach their kids to hate and blow themselves up than a group who has created a prosperous and peaceful country…..sure, that’s the ticket.

    So Trump, when asked, said that as for this stupid “two-state” solution to Israel and Palestine, that he would be for whatever makes both countries happy.

    Well how’s that for a concept? Not a single American President has ever said such a simple thing.

    Of course this fake Palestine place has no more right to a country in that the country never existed before and now it is filled with thieves and thugs that even nearby Islamic countries will not take in.

    Still and so, there will always be another Arafat, that awful man that Hillary Clinton hugged all the time and who is now buried and forgotten in somebody’s garden.

    But yeah, how about these feuding countries handle it themselves, how’s that for a concept? Of course Israel could blow up Palestine, boom, without a second thought, and they just might. Blow Arafat out of the ground while at it.

    Then Trump is asked about these Israeli settlements and Trump says, truthfully for a change, that he’d rather they slow up for a bit. Bibi then sardonically whispers that there will be a slim chance of that. Trump laughs and responds how tough Bibi is.

    Bibi then makes a reference to Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal”.

    It was a friendly exchange, not one where our President looks down his long nose and sniffs, leaving Bibi sitting in a room while he eats dinner, removing his picture from the oval office.

    WHAT A CONCEPT!

    Getting along with our international FRIENDS instead of the thieves and thugs to which we all must bow in the Day of President Obama.

    Friday-date-2/17/17-daily update


    What else is there to comment upon save that amazing press conference yesterday by President Trump?

    I get a little uneasy sometimes when he speaks because, well he’s astonishingly honest. And, at times, I do ponder if this is appropriate for a POTUS.

    Also, as an aside, we hear that Trump wine is sold out all over Washington D.C.

    Heh.

    Trump kept calling the media on their bias and lack of objectivity. Of course he kept calling it Fake News.

    Folks, if anything on this planet is Fake News it’s this entire, getting old, Russian meme.

    Everyone knows the Russians didn’t hack this election. I watch those Sunday political talk show hosts and shake my head. If I, a widow with little political experience, can figure out that the Democrats/liberals are trying to invent some sort of drama that Vladamir Putin personally spoke to all Americans and gave them a bit of cash to vote for Trump instead of Hillary.

    Chuck Todd doesn’t know he’s a pawn in this big lie? We all know that guy on CNN’s State of the Union, forget his name but he’s the dumbest and worst political talk show host on TV, we all know he’s an idiot being bounced around by the Hillary crew.

    Chris Wallace, a Fox guy, also jumps on the Russian meme because, well I guess he figures everyone else does, then he’s got to.

    I simply refuse to believe that none of these guys know they’re being played for the fool. I believe that they are so flattered when Valerie Jarrett or some minion of hers phones up with info they can use on their shows and beg their participation.

    If they really were not Fake News outlets, they’d all, ALL OF THEM, stop with this silly Russian bullshit.

    We are not that stupid out here in la-la land where we carry our country on our backs.

    Saturday-date-2/18/17-daily update


    If there was a slow date this week it was yesterday.

    So I’d like to take a moment to suggest a couple of things I don’t think President Trump should do.

    Not that he needs to listen to me and further, there are five million more things I wished President Obama wouldn’t have done and even George Dubya, sorry but there’s one of the dumber of our presidents.

    For example, Mark Cuban, a shark on that show and owner of some basketball team, thinks he should be our next president.

    Trump tweeted out that Cuban constantly contacted him but he-Trump- did not have time to take all these calls and he thinks Cuban is too stupid to be president.

    One more…..when he’s answering questions at a press conference, he tends to spend too much time thinking of clever responses, thereby missing the original point of the query and the rest of the words of the question.

    An example was how he couldn’t stop by calling CNN FAKE news and had to add, after the first zinger, that CNN is now VERY FAKE news.

    I mean it’s not witty or clever and I wish Trump would be a little more serious.

    As for Mark Cuban being too stupid to be president, I mean come on. Calling people stupid in public is not classy and hey, I just wish Trump would stop doing it.

    Even if THEY call him, the president, stupid, there is a difference between the president and the rest of America.

    But that’s all. I still think that Trump is 90% good in his communication skills.

    I’m just trying to brush him off, tell him to stand tall, and bring it up to 100%.

    On a Personal Note


    I mentioned a week or so ago that my daughter lost any custody she had whatsoever of her daughter. Her husband, the child’s father, got complete custody.

    Now the terror and horror starts anew, with a little help from the gubmint of course.

    Because daughter, a sufferer of Munchausen disorder as she loves to make herself sick and she wants to, and IS, homeless.

    Yeah, she’s nuts.

    So son-in-law gets a call from HER lawyer, her lawyer paid for by you and I, while son-in-law has to pay for his own lawyer and gets no child support. Daughter’s lawyer tells son-in-law that he must provide daughter with all of granddaughter’s doctors.

    That’s her new meme. For many years it was suicide…suicide about 200 times a year, hospitals….onandonandon. I estimate she has cost taxpayers about 11 million dollars.

    Seriously.

    The judge took granddaughter back into chambers twice, kept her there for a half an hour. Each time he awarded custody to son-in-law, finally on a permanent basis.

    Her new feel-sorry-for-me meme is that her daughter is being molested by her father.

    And the gubmint is working it. Because daughter, she might be crazy but she’s smarter than any of us.

    Granddaughter positively hates being involved in any doctor thing with her mother and her mother uses the doctors to get sympathy. Kaitlyn is a healthy and happy child.

    Y’all ever heard of Munchausen by Proxy? Because a lot of murders happen that way and Dateline covers it all the time.

    Son-in-law is desperately trying to keep my daughter from putting her daughter through all this but the gubmint, via taxpayer paid lawyers, are all involved.

    It’s a nightmare. And Kaitlyn hates it. Kaitlyn is 13 years old. She has been interviewed by endless counselors and by that family court judge, for many hours.

    Because Melissa wants drama and sympathy in her life and she beats the hell out of everyone around her.

    Which wouldn’t be so bad BUT THE GUBMINT HELPS!

    I’m done.

    Hiya Cousin Mike.

    Speaking of Mark Levin....first I’m with you as to his dwindling respect I have left for him.

    First he thought he was so cool with that NeverTrump stuff.

    NOW he’s a real piece of work, jumping on something Trump did and being small and petty.

    But this past week I noted that Levin seems to think that there’s a big leak in the Trump White House and he mentioned, a couple of times, that it was probably Reince Preibus.

    Well I just don’t know but Levin wants so bad to be part of the beloved ones and he’s just not.

    And he calls the other radio talk hosts “back benchers” so I guess that makes him a front bencher.

    Somebody tell Mark Levin, well never mind, I know for a fact he reads this thread so I will tell him...

    MARK LEVIN....YOU SIR ARE NO RUSH LIMBAUGH!

    And Rush never so severely betrayed any GOP candidate, he’s too smart.

    Levin is trying to wedge himself into a spot that will have him wiser than the Trump lovers but not as cold-hearted as the NeverTrumpers.

    While common sense types like ourselves are just not impressed, not impressed at all.

    She really does have a great fashion sense and her outfits weren’t too expensive. Though they are much more than I normally pay.

    The largest size seems to be a size 16. Now I can fit in a size 16 but I don’t want to pay a lot of money and it doesn’t fit.

    In fact I am shopping for a new wardrobe because in keeping with my bucket list, as part of my Maslow’s “myself” part, being comfortable, warm, clean and looking as nice as I can is part of my plan.

    Bearing in mind that while I affirmed I was moving on from the lowest level of my hierarchy, it is more that I am working on it than complete and ready for action.

    So I need a new wardrobe for my remaining ten years on the bucket list. The very first thing people, and there ought to be a damn law....

    ALL ARTICLES OF CLOTHING MUST HAVE POCKETS!!!!!!!

    Indeed get the Delaware legislature to do it. They love to pass laws, they will put you in jail and allow the inmates to rape and murder you....they’ll make it a law that all clothing worn on the outside must have pockets.

    What kind of world do we live in with cell phones, car keys, shopping lists....on and on....we got to have pockets in our clothes.

    I absolutely ADORE cargo pants although yeah, they’re a little ugly. But cargo pants have pockets everywhere, which is how God meant it to be.

    I am looking for long dresses, which I do quite like. But again, they must have pockets.

    Anyway, thanks for the link. I am going to buy something from that Ivanka line.

    And many of them did, I note, HAVE POCKETS!!

    Good morning AB, all.

    Let me thank you AB for reliably doing this thread every week and let me thank the commenters who join in and help us flesh it out. Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom and thank those who jump into the thread and have enough class not to tell us how noble and wonderful they are that they never watch the Sunday talk shows.

    Heh.

    Week Just Passed


    You know the Democrats/liberals jumped into the Ivanka spat, what with the wonderful Nordstrams, a store I never bought a single thing at in my life, dropping Ivanka’s line with a few others joining in. So Kelly Conway shouts out a quick promo during some interview or another and go with me on this….this week I WILL buy something from Ivanka Trump’s line.

    I just hope she sells plus sizes.

    DeVos and Price got approved for Trump’s cabinet and heh, you’ll never believe what the 9th circuit court did. I know you will be shocked but they spit on the constitution and ordered immigrants to come in at will, fooey on this elected president.

    Let me tell you a theory I have on this matter. I believe that passports or whatever is needed to get into this country, are, or WERE, very much up for sale with the Obama/Clinton gang. Now that Trump is putting in his cabinet I believe Trump got wind of this, that many thousands of immigrants were do to enter the country as many as possible for such as Sessions and other pains in the butt get in power.

    I believe that Trump got wind of a lot of stuff and is methodically trying to deal with draining that swamp because that’s what it is, a swamp. They bought off a couple of judges and are now furiously trying to import as many as they can, and collect the promised monies, before Trump’s people get appointed, debated on, sworn in and get to know their way around.

    Finally, a Delaware note.

    I don’t know if y’all heard but about a week and a half ago Delaware had a major, major takeover of one of our prisons. I would remind yon readers that there is a huge prison about five miles from my own self, though this particular prison was further upstate.

    A corrections officer was brutally, BRUTALLY, murdered, after being tortured for over 23 hours. Our beloved liberal Governor was too scared to send in reinforcements and this CO died because liberals should smoke pot and shut up.

    They buried the guy yesterday, and also there was a female CO that was held captive as well. She lived but goodness knows what horrors she suffered during that hostage situatiion.

    On a Personal Note


    So I found a box of stuff in my garage. Y’all know how that goes. Stuff stored in garages tends to stay there forever until one gets hinky like me and decides to clean it out. I found many, many pictures of myself. Well the rest of my family too but I was very surprised at how many pics I saved from my life.

    I put them in chronological order and pondered on and on.

    I spent my life thinking I was hideously ugly and hugely fat and as I look at these pictures I kind of laugh.

    I was really pretty!

    Now before y’all go saying I have no humility….fooey on it, I spent a lifetime thinking I was horrible malformed so I paid the price.

    Why I wasn’t even particularly fat, dear Lord, what was I thinking? Sure I wasn’t the next Twiggy but for the most part I was average with a little pudge. By me I thought I was an elephant in human clothes.

    I wasn’t particularly stylish as I look at the pictures. Well that was because I was not worth the trouble. But I wasn’t hideous or ugly and here’s a smile. I came across a picture of me, it was from a Parents Without Partners dance. I don’t know what it was about that picture but dear Lord I was positively gorgeous in that picture! I was posing with two men, one on the right, one on the left and again, if that picture wasn’t me I’d be remarking what a pretty woman this was. Someday I’ll put up that pic (I had to take pictures of these pictures because they were all poloroids) but I’m still trying to get over the regret I have for spending my life hating myself.

    Although I always thought I was smart, clever, witty.

    Anyway, I am ready to begin my Bucket list. I have already made it through the bottom level of Maslow’s hierarchy. If you took Psychology 101 you probably know about Maslow’s hierarchy, which is a pyramid type shape depiction of human life.

    We begin at the bottom, which are basic needs.

    I had to do a little adjustment to my basic needs.

    I got five bottom bricks to my life hierarchy.

    There’s my pets. Now I know one does not need pets to live but I do. So I took all pets to the Vet, this Vet who is really odd, heh, and they are all healthy and happy. There’s my shelter, the house in which I live that no longer is lived in by my beloved husband and two years were lost with a crazy daughter. Now I want my shelter to reflect my living situation as it is now….no daughter, no husband.

    There’s my own self and this includes several sub-categories. My health, which at my age and with my DNA needs must be watched. My looks, because happy people do their best to look neat and keep themselves clean. My bucket list spiral perm falls in that category.

    There’s my finances, which is something that keeps me alive. I have handled the house across the street that my daughter destroyed and I’m not rich but I got a handle on this.

    Do not laugh, but having a vehicle is very important so along with my pets at the bottom of my Maslow’s hierarchy I include the Jeep.

    I thought I would wake up Jan. 2 and my NY resolutions would automatically kick in. But it took a month to get these basic needs under control.

    Oh, and daughter took ten thousand dollars cash for that house, what a lovely person she is, huh? And she lost complete custody of her daughter.

    ALL WITH THE HELP OF THE GUBMINT.

    Now that the bottom of my hierarchy is under control. I move to my next layer on Maslow’s hierarchy.

    I will be vindicated and I will see to it that the awful people who beat the hell out of ME to protect my evil child will be made to pay.

    Wish me luck.

    Forgive me yon reader who might have some kind of love for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

    I can’t stand the guy. I know politicos are sleazy, in general, but Christie is sleazier than ,most. Yeah there’s that bridge he closed down and I still got a grudge. I drive that bridge a lot and the thought of a politician making life miserable for us peons who carry this country on our backs makes me furious. And anybody believes he had nothing to do with it, well I got a bridge to sell.

    Then he acted like he was in charge of everything for the Trump campaign until they had to tell him to go away. Cause, even fat as he is, if there is a camera around, Christie will be there.

    So on Face the Nation he’s defending Trump’s so-called “ban” on Muslims and he slips in, under his lizard tongue “when he first announced it I was against it”.

    Say what?

    Now he’s on and praising Trump all over the place.

    And y’all know Christie spits in the wind and I’m thinking he took a chance on that Face the Nation camera, never mind having kind of principled stand on anything.

    If he was originally against this action by Trump, what the hell’s he doing on a Sunday political talk show now defending it?

    No wait....there’s that camera thing...

    Allow me to reveal to you today’s Sunday political talk show’s ASSHOLE OF THE DAY.

    TADA!!!! MATTHEW DOWD.

    Yes his sister is liberal loser in love Maureen Dowd of the NY Times but over the years Matthew has presented himself as the more moderate, indeed almost conservative of the two.

    But he’s on This Week with George Steponallofus and he’s carrying on about his so-called Muslim ban as another table pundit says it is NOT a Muslim ban, that there are over 40 countries with majority Muslim and Trump is only temporarily stopping visas on 7 of them.

    Dowd leans back, folds his arms, and like the child he is, says “Well Trump said during the campaign that he was going to stop Mulims from getting visas,”.....sheesh.

    Then ole Matt snarls and says they should have voted for Garland, that they got to stop changing the rules, the congress should have voted for this Trump ban, not allow him to use executive action although Obama did.

    A real nothing burger, no void of any respect I may have ever had for him.

    I agree with you about the Sessions nomination.

    I would think that if there is anything to the story that Sessions would begin an investigation.

    I don’t know what to believe. Part of me wants to believe that no way would anyone, even a crap turd like Hillary, would look the other way on child abuse but some bishop up in Boston did once.

    Plenty of looking the other way through the years so the biggest mistake we could make is to poo-poo something, to toss it off cavalierly.......

    But if Jeff Sessions gets nominated and nothing comes of this, well that will solve it for me.

    Good morning on this Super Bowl day, used to be a big day in America but the traitors who want to destroy our country definitely want to destroy football as it is mostly in America that the sport is loved and appreciated.

    Rooting for the Patriots this morn as a) the Ravens are not playing and b)All of my beloved deceased husband’s family is from Massachusetts.

    As always, thank you AB for reliably doing this thread. Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom and thank yon commenters for fleshing it out for us all.

    Lately we’ve had some great commenters so please keep up the good work.

    Week Just Passed


    Again they protest. Judges change the legal edicts of the President, who we DID elect, NOT the judge.

    I almost joined a protest against the groundhog for declaring more winter but if missed, there’s plenty more protests.

    I got a flash of wisdom this past week that I shall share with you all.

    Somebody is desperately trying to start a civil war.

    I am pretty sure it’s the Huma Abedin/Valerie Jarret crowd, helped by Soros, Hillary and Obama.

    For none of them love America. The two Muslim Brotherhood members on that list want Sharia law and Muslims taking over this country.

    Soros, formerly a traitorous Nazi, wants to tear America apart using his endless funds. With a world filled with stupid and cowardly Muslims, Soros will become King.

    Obama is a good time charlie guy, nice creased pants, eats a lot of cilantro, got a somewhat charming nature. He’d love to be chief of staff to Emperor of the World….George Soros.

    And Hillary is a loser from day one and she wants to rise again to the joy and songs of those who abandoned her.

    They’ve tried everything, as y’all know. They recounted, they bribed, and goodness knows they marched. If Trump so much as farts in public they will keep marching and eventually, you know what?

    People like us are going to get sick of having our traffic jammed, or having constant tumult and turmoil. Sooner or later we will begin to protest our own hard-working and law-abiding selves.

    At some point someone will throw a punch, fire a shot, shout an obscenity. Fights will break out and all across the planet the world will tsk-tsk and point out how terrible that awful experiment called America turned out.

    It’s all they have left, people, to start a civil war, to hope that the rest of the world will somehow join in.

    Because already they have marched three intelligence agency members out of the State Dept, names are Mohammid and Mohammid and Mohammid.

    Folks, our intelligence agencies are filthy with traitors, all surreptiously snuck in and put in high places by the gang from the Muslim Brotherhood listed above.

    How will it begin? Because no way are Americans going to sit down and watch our country taken over. Sure, we got fooled, or we weren’t fooled but didn’t know what to do, in these past eight years but now we got someone draining that swamp.

    We are finding out the truth on these people and with the help of a bunch of paid idiot rioters, it never ends.

    Will President Trump urge us to take to the streets? Will Rush Limbaugh, perhaps Sean Hannity, blare out the Clarion Call?-the name of my most recent book by the way.

    Most important question of all, will yon reader join the battle?

    On a Personal Note


    I don’t want to dwell on this too much right now but something terrific, and also incredibly sad, happened last week.

    Within the year, I predict, you will see my story on either Dateline or 20/20. I already turned down Dr. Phil, twice, but he’s not totally out of the picture.

    My Munchaussen afflicted daughter, she who loves to make herself sick and who wants to be homeless, I am not making this up, lost total and complete custody of her daughter.

    She is a beautiful child, now 13, desperately needed a mother but her mother abandoned her. But she now has no mother. Her mother almost killed two dogs, got five bogus restraining orders on her husband and put him in jail, wrongly, seven times. She got two bogus restraining orders against me, a 66 year old woman with circulatory issues that have me declared handicapped and walking with a limp and a cane. SHE is 27 years younger than me and outweighs me by 50 pounds yet this county’s Family court declared me a danger to HER, all because I tried to save a suffering dog.

    Now the gubmint is all embarrassed because who the hell hasn’t she fooled in the 40 years of her life? She puts ticks on herself so she’ll get Lyme disease, she desperately wants Lyme disease.

    Anyway…..she not only lost total custody of her child, sole custody being give to the child’s father, who she had given fake restraining orders and threw In jail, how the hell bad can he be?

    But she finally cashed that ten thousand dollar cashier check and signed off all rights to the house, get this, that I bought her.

    Indeed I bought her a house, gave her my dead husband’s car, which she destroyed, and took them all to Disney World. As a child she led a charmed life although she tells everyone I abused her.

    She had a house, a car, I lived across the street and I paid for every damn thing.

    So why did she lose custody of her child with the SPCA coming to take away her dog?

    Well it’s the saddest damn story but I AM FREE!

    She ripped out all the appliances of this house, she painted huge black paintings on the walls. She hated that house, she does not want a house.

    Munchausen patients do NOT want a permanent home and they don’t want a family. In all my studies of the manner, including collaberating with the American expert on this mental disorder, we learn that they will throw their family aside, including their children evidently, and travel the country, in and out of hospitals because they are addicted to hospitals and attention. They can’t stay in one place because sooner or later people are on to her. Sussex county is now on to her, I suppose, but what about those of us beaten with an emotional baseball bat with help from the gubmint? Oh, but they get federal funds for abused women don’t they?

    I wrote a book about her in 2005, dedicated to her as follows: “To Melissa, who I only want to be happy.”

    Yeah, I still got the book and a whole bunch of people have read it. Titled “Attention, Please” because my trials and tribulations with my daughter began when she turned twelve. I knew something wasn’t right but I did not know what. I only knew I took her to the doctors as they instructed and she went into the hospital as often as she could.

    Well it’s all in the book.

    The bigger issue now, folks, is not my mentally ill daughter. We all have children or family that have issues.

    IT’S THAT THE GOVERNMENT GOT INVOLVED! They should have not did the things they did and soon I will be testifying before the Delaware state legislature. And maybe Dr. Phil…..soon.

    Again, the biggest news this week is she can no longer be a constant terror to me. She now had no legal right to enter that house, THAT particular fact being the basis of every legal order she managed to fool the lesbians in Sussex Family court was where she was being abused. Then she wrecked the house, that I took out a second mortgage on MY house to buy, what I worked for my whole life.

    I had to pay her ten thousand dollars BUT I GOT MY LIFE BACK.

    My granddaughter spent two half hour sessions in the judge’s chambers where she told the judge she did NOT want to live with her crazy mother.

    The gubmint people….it’s a hell of a story but for now, be happy that she’s gone from my life.

    Be sad that one very innocent child lost her mother, with a little help from the gubmint.

    Yes sweet Dana with the literary dog (after all, what former press secretary WOULDN’T write a book about a dog?), you CAN tell about people’s emotions by what you see.

    Prosecutors do it all the time. “Did John Doe appear distraught when he found his wife dead in the bathroom?”

    And sure it’s only a conjecture, but Dana Perino who writes the only book she might after write with any fanfare about her damn dog....Dana thinks it is wrong for us to try to determine emotions by what our lying eyes see.

    Parents have to ascertain if their children are faking...hey Dana....it goes on all over the world.

    Sorry to be going on guys, but this is why Dubya’s admin, which did basically a good job given all that was thrown at it....but this is why the Bush admin went down in sad flames. They did nothing to defend themselves but some of them did write a book about their dog.

    Because snowflakes like Dana Perino led the narrative.

    We might be lucky it wasn’t all about her dog.

    Allow me to clarify; hone in if you will.

    McCain did, no doubt, spend some time in a Hanoi prison. Up until the time he refused to go home before others imprisoned before him.

    I say softly that McCain, it is rumored, made some sort of deal with the Vietcong, that he would be their celebrity prisoner and he could “serve” his time in an apartment in Hanoi.

    But make no mistake, I could not quote you any source but then again I am not the NY Times, just a commenter on a political site thread.

    Only the NY Times can totally make up stuff. Though an argument that I have no proof would be reasonable.

    But like the Kerry drama, there’s plenty of people that know he truth and I think Donald Trump is one of them.

    In fact, I think Donald Trump knows a lot of stuff under-cover. Yeah, I think our federal gubmint is filled with good decent people who are sick of seeing all this crap and selling of our country right under their eyes.

    I suspect that Trump has a network of people who have been coming forward, even if to the advisors and potential cabinet nominees.

    Yeah......Americans are good and don’t want their country sold under them. Which I why protesters defending terrorists at airports and ugly women dress in vagina suits won’t win the public blessing.

    Anyway....sorry to ramble on.....

    Hey.....welcome to the Sunday live thread.

    The moderator may also remove my post re your comment and we can move on.

    Here’s an example....I am watching This Week with George Steponallofus, one of my favorite Sunday shows because ole George is a Clinton supporter.

    It helps to know what these people are up to.

    But here’s a scoop. We knew it wasn’t going to last long.

    It’s Susan Rice, former ambassador to the UN who told us a thousand times that Benghazi was a protest. So here’s what she posts on Twitter I think:

    “This is stone cold crazy. After a week of crazy. Who needs military advice or intell to make policy on ISIL, Syria, Afghanistan, DPRK?”

    Say what?

    First, it didn’t take long for Obama to get his nose back under that tent. He had to be going crazy last week with Trump doing all this so he sends out a flackie to be mean and nasty.

    Who needs military intell to make decisions on these things. Well we could do it like the Obama/Clinton crowd did Benghazi, just lie all day and night and all day and all night.

    These are the kinds of things you learn by watching the Sunday talk shows and with this new administration we are busier than ever.

    Stick around and see if it doesn’t pique your interest.

    Unfortunately we had an opportunity to “primary” McQueeg and failed once again as we did with so many others. We have to take primaries seriously or pay the price.

    Let us not forget that McCain was involved ("involved" to the point that he did it all) in that stupid Russian story about peeing on the bed.

    Do not trust that man. This is what I have learned about McCain during the Trump election of all things. Once upon a time I even voted for the man, although holding nose.

    McCain never met a camera he didn't love. His whole military career was but, like fake John Kerry, a drama to have him run for election someday. Dear Lord, I mock that campaign finance reform mess but I'm right people!

    Before 9-11 THIS was the big news? It's not like Americans were not sleeping well all worried about campaign finance reform and don't forget he sponsored it with that Democrat guy who got kicked out -Feingold.

    It's a perfect example of McCain's drama and plan to win that which he so deserves....all set up to please the establishment, to walk across the aisle that was once so beloved.

    And no you may not suggest we lay off his past. He’s out there now and beating up on Trump.....no.... It’s time for McCain to go. If he was laying low and keeping quiet I’d shut my mouth.

    But no, I do NOT think we should forget his lying past no more than we forgot Kerry and his deception.

    Morning RL.

    Made a wonderful potato soup yesterday. I do dearly love soup.

    And indeed thank God for President Trump. Man he said we would get tired of all the winning but here’s my question....

    ......WHO IS YET TIRED OF ALL THE WINNING???

    The left is showing their true colors and while it annoys me, it is good.

    The march for life is a good example. Those really, really ugly women wearing ugly vagina costumes...what normal person is impressed by this?

    As for the march FOR life, note that Pence spoke at the rally....eight years these people out being civilized and showing their concern for the unborn.

    My church is really big into that march for life, usually garnering upwards of three buses to go to that thing. I always admired those who went to it as it was heavily advertised.

    BUT THIS YEAR WE HAVE PRESIDENT TRUMP!

    Yes.....thank God for President Trump.

    PS-that crazy Vet who has some kind of attachment to me is ten years YOUNGER than me. Just to correct.

    He is married to a Hispanic I might add, but he tells me while she is legal, there is a whole slew of her family that are illegal. They want them to get legal but hey, sanctuary cities and universities is our gubmint telling them to come on in, we will look the other way.

    People here legally don’t want the illegals to have free rein, do not believe that.

    Speaking of McCain.....like many of us, I never did much like the guy.

    Although I do sleep better at night now that he got that campaign finance reform bill passed.

    Anybody remember that mess? As if all of America was desperate for a campaign reform bill but it was all about the establishment wasn’t it?

    I have learned so much about McCain these past few weeks and first, I learned that McCain is the Republican John Kerry.

    He was NEVER any kind of war hero. His father was a bigwig in the navy but McCain couldn’t properly fly a plane so he landed in enemy territory.

    I am to understand he was NEVER tortured and never spent time in a Hanoi prison.

    He lied and changed events, much like Kerry.

    And somehow McCain teetered up to some kind of leadership in the Republican but mostly he did it by pushing the military vendors and working with the Democrats.

    I never liked him before and that campaign finance reform was his nothing-burger entry into the presidency race.

    Frankly I am glad this jerk didn’t win. How would he have been much different than Obama?

    Good morning ladies and gems! Good morning AB and, as always, thank you for doing this thread regularly on a weekly basis that I can awake and join in with little effort. Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom and thank all yon commenters for fleshing out the stupidity from the wisdom.

    Week Just Passed


    Well just wow. President Trump is certainly working hard, goodness. Does anybody remember President Obama working so hard, even on weekends? All I recall is pictures of him on the golf course.

    The other big news is the threat to look into voter fraud. THAT bit of news has the Democrats shaking in boots, as well it should. I hope Trump doesn’t drop this plan because voter fraud is rampant and not once, not one single damn time last week, did I heard about the Russians stealing our election, what silliness was that?

    My dogs tell me, however, that the Russians did poop in the hallways so let’s not allow them off scot free.

    I do NOT believe that Hillary won the popular vote and I think the genius of launching a nationwide investigation into elections will stop those nuts from constantly telling us Hillary won the popular vote.

    If she did, so what?

    But she did not. Period.

    Finally, today there is a big deal going on at airports because some asshole federal judge put some kind of stay on sending or holding illegal aliens held because of Trump’s executive order.

    Is this going to go on every time Trump does something? A bunch of nuts are going to go on some kind of riot?

    Soon, folks, soon there will be a civil war. Given the right circumstances, the perfect storm if you will….like that horrible woman who humiliated herself on that airplane, the people are going to take action.

    No, I don’t want that happen. But this descent into anarchy has got to stop.

    On a Personal Note


    I am in a good mood today because I went to church yesterday and prayed dearly for God to send me a smile, just one smile.

    So I go home and because my phone was on silent in church I had a bunch of messages. One was from my granddaughter, who I called back and who told me she was my favorite granddaughter. I told her she was my favorite kid on the whole planet but for the record, heh, she is my only granddaughter.

    Oh, and by the way, did anybody read President Trump’s admonition about Dreamers? To the effect that if they’ve been good citizens and are currently living a law-abiding life, that they shouldn’t worry too much.

    Again, I’ll not argue with anyone on this matter because it ain’t going to happen.

    But Beelow, my Dreamer (who swears to me he is legal so don’t go beating up on the guy, I don’t know and frankly, don’t want to know) tenant, sends me a text message which made me smile.

    “Miss Path,” he writes as he always calls me Path. Then he invites me over at 9pm because he is having some kind of party that would include “roasted meat”.

    I’m thinking this is maybe some big Guatamalan holiday but dear Lord no way I am going to join a bunch of Guatamalans for a party, even with whatever the hell is this roasted meat. Last week Beelow sent me over a plate of food, which was delicious but dear Lord the fish still had the head on it! I took the head off and yeah, I ate it.

    Anyway, last week was a WINNING week!

    First was my neighbor on my right. I go on Facebook and she has a picture of herself wearing a shirt with Trump on the front, a MAGA hat on her head, flags on her shirt.

    I was shocked. She never so much as displayed a sign on her lawn and more, never indicated she was much into politics. She does, however and insert smile here, read everything I write on Blog, Facebook and yeah, she read all my books.

    So I stop by on my way to mailbox and told her how surprised I was. My goodness she jumps up and down and tells me how happy she is to have Trump win. On and on we discussed politics and what a joy.

    She too knows Beelow, I might add, and tells me how she doesn’t think he should be exported and further, she really needs him to come over and rake her leaves.

    Best of all is the veterinarian. Y’all might remember this Vet, handsome guy who really seems to have some sort of fondness for me although know that I am probably ten years younger than him.

    Heh, this is the Vet who put his fingers on my back and rubbed them around lightly, some crazy attempt to show me how fleas feel on a dog’s back.

    Anyway, this Vet went on and on about Trump, how much he loves him. Another reminder, he and his brother are very active in Sussex county politics.

    He told me how he admires Kellyann Conway, how much Trump is going to do to make things better. Guy spent a half hour just talking politics with me. My dogs were in the room, who have fleas by the way in the middle of January, what’s up with that?

    Hey, people are happy out here in la-la land where we carry this country on our backs.

    President Trump is going to drain that swamp. The people are happy. The rioters will not win.

    Yeah!

    They are out of business now, or taken over by Bank of New England.

    But yeah, William G. Fish Sr., President of Baybanks.

    Billy, my husband, was allowed to over-draw on his account but he always had to pay it back.

    Heh.

    Somewhere, one day, a relic of our era will be found.

    It will be a curtained icon, like the Wizard of Oz. Future archeologists will ask what it is.

    “This is the podium where Hillary Clinton controlled things after she lost the election to Donald Trump,” they will discover.

    “So how did that work out?” they might ask.

    “Well they tried several versions of the recounts, first just a couple of states and she bribed that Jill woman to keep at it.”

    “And how did that work out?”

    Shrug. “Not so much.”

    “Anything else?”

    “Well they tried riots around the election.”

    “And that worked?”

    Shrug. “No”.

    “Anything else?”

    “Well they did try to bribe the electors to vote against Donald Trump. Told everyone there was a chance they’d keep Trump out of office.”

    “And that worked out?”

    Shrug.

    “Well there was the inauguraton,” they would go on. “They spread the word that there would be riots, that the rains would come....”

    “And that kept them from watching? Kept them home”

    “They also did that big women’s march the day after the inauguration.”

    “And that worked out well?”

    Shrug. Not so much.

    “They also released fake intelligence documents right before the inauguration that had Russia declaring Trump hired prostitutes to pee on a bed in Moscow.”

    “And that worked out?”

    Shrug.

    Hillary is behind all this, the Clintons if you will.

    But it will soon all go away....and they will find the great Wizard of Oz curtain and who is behind it.
