Good: House Postpones Health Care Bill

They only had about 7 to 8 years to come up with a replacement and now, the pathetic Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan has decided not to put the healthcare bill up for a vote.
First, who said that the GOP had to come up with a bill just 3 months or so into President Trump's presidency.
Do it right and not in haste.
2nd, not everything in ObamaCare is horrible- there are maybe 1 or 2 things that are good and keep them but there are so many things that are terrible, like:
Mandatory health coverage for workers who work over 30 hours a week.  That cost so many people full time jobs and hours.
Not selling insurance over state lines.
Not allowing other insurance companies into the field.  The current health insurance companies have their little fiefdom.  Let there be competition.
Mandating certain things into healthcare insurance was sooo stupid.  Allow consumers to pick what they need.  I don't need pregnancy or breast cancer insurance and a woman doesn't need to be covered for prostrate cancer.  Use common sense, something GOP leadership have always lacked.
I can go on but, the GOP should take it's time and get it done right.  It's not like President Trump is going anywhere, anytime soon, much to the dismay of liberals.

Yep

Crap

I work at Kmart part time and I kind of know Sears and Kmart are in trouble but this kind provides strong proof that I may be out of a job soon.
From the Chicago Tribune: After years of mounting losses, the parent company of Sears and Kmart says there is "substantial doubt" about its financial viability.
"Our historical operating results indicate substantial doubt exists related to the company's ability to continue as a going concern," Sears Holdings said Tuesday in its annual report.
The biggest question, the company said, is whether it can raise enough cash to stay afloat. It currently has $4.2 billion in debt, up from $3 billion a year ago.
Sears Holdings is the parent of Kmart Holding and Sears, Roebuck, & Co. It was formed following the March 2005 merger between the two companies, both of which are American retail icons dating back to the late 19th century. The decline of suburban shopping malls and the rise of online retail have dealt a double-whammy to the businesses. In recent years, the parent has shuttered dozens of stores and sold off some of its brands.
Sears Holding hasn't turned an annual profit since 2010. Last year, it reported losses of $2.2 billion. Annual revenue, meanwhile, declined 12 percent to $22.1 billion.
Last month, the company said it was planning a "strategic transformation" by trimming $1 billion in annual costs. It also recently announced plans to close an additional 150 Kmart and Sears stores, and sold its Craftsman brand of tools and lawn equipment to Stanley Black & Decker for more than $900 million.
http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-sears-future-20170321-story.html
At the store I work at, if it weren't for the tourists along Hwy 66, a truck stop next to the store and people who hate Wal-Mart, we would have about 5 customers a day.  The prices stink, the products stinks even more and we knowingly put damaged items on the store floor to sell.
The store I work at has had sales over $1,000,000 less than 2 years ago, or a drop of about 35%, and we are somehow still open and pull a slight profit.  It would be a shame that Sears would go out of business considering their long and storied career as a giant retailer.  But then, the buggy whip industry basically went out of business, except for the Amish who still buy buggy whips.

RIP Chuck Barris

Another legend dies, even though most people under the age of 50 don't remember him, as the host of the Gong Show, starting in 1976.
I remember watching the show weekly and seeing the mix of talented people and the crazy people who thought they had talent.
Well, the gong tolls for Barris as he died today at the age of 87.  
From CNN: Chuck Barris, best known as host of the TV series "The Gong Show" and creator of "The Dating Game" and "The Newlywed Game," died Tuesday.
He was 87. 
He passed away at his home in Palisades, New York, from natural causes, according to publicist Paul Shefrin.
As host of "The Gong Show," Barris introduced amateur performers to three celebrity judges, who could put a stop to terrible performances by striking the gong. Much like on "American Idol," awful performances became ratings smash hits. The TV show aired from 1976 to 1980.
While his shows were wildly popular, they were not a hit with critics. Barris was panned as the King of Schlock, Baron of Bad Taste and Ayatollah of Trasherola.
Apart from game shows, Barris found success as a writer. He penned six best-selling books and a 1962 pop song, "Palisades Park," which became a No. 3 hit in the US for Freddy Cannon.

Trump Was Right.... Again

The media an liberals laughed and scorned President Trump when he accused ex-President Obama of wire tapping and basically spying on him and others in 2016 and 2017.
I figured that for trump had to know something was up because after all, he has access to all the intelligence information and Obama didn't personally deny it.
Trump may be crazy, like a fox, but he's not stupid.  He wouldn't throw something out there that was so explosive with no evidence.
From Politico: Members of the Donald Trump transition team, possibly including Trump himself, were under U.S. government surveillance following November’s presidential election, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told reporters Wednesday.
Nunes said the monitoring appeared to be done legally as a result of what's called "incidental collection," but said he was concerned because it was not related to the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the election and was widely disseminated across the intelligence community.
“I have seen intelligence reports that clearly show that the president-elect and his team were, I guess, at least monitored,” Nunes told reporters. “It looks to me like it was all legally collected, but it was essentially a lot of information on the president-elect and his transition team and what they were doing.”
Nunes said he is heading to the White House later Wednesday to brief Trump on what he has learned, which he said came from “sources who thought that we should know it.” He said he was trying to get more information by Friday from the FBI, CIA and NSA.
Nunes described the surveillance as most likely being “incidental collection.” This can occur when a person inside the United States communicates with a foreign target of U.S. surveillance. In such cases, the identities of U.S. citizens are supposed to be kept secret — but can be “unmasked” by intelligence officials under certain circumstances.
Nunes said his new information appears to show that additional members of the Trump transition team — beyond former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — were unmasked. This means they were identified in U.S. intelligence reports.
http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/devin-nunes-donald-trump-surveillance-obama-236366
Now, of course the media and liberals will deny these accusations and say Nunes is crazy.
But when you are dealing with the most unethical and pathetic president in history, Obama, these reports of wire tapping and spying not surprising in any way, and in fact, expected.

Another muslim Terrorist Attack

One wonders if all London police officers were armed or there was concealed carry, if the results would have been different?  Only about 7% of the plice officers in Great Britain are armed.
From the Daily Mail, U.K.: Three people and a terrorist are dead after an attacker brought carnage to central London today, mowing down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge and hacking at police with knives in the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.
Around 20 people were hit when a 4x4 drove along the pavement on the crowded bridge, knocking down and seriously injuring pedestrians before crashing into a fence below Big Ben.
The killer, described by witnesses as 'middle-aged and Asian', then managed to break into the grounds of Parliament, where he fatally stabbed a police officer with two knives.
The policeman died at the scene. The attacker - who was shot at least twice by armed officers guarding the building - died after he was taken to hospital. 
Prime Minister Theresa May tonight vowed Britain would 'never give in to terror' and 'defeat hate and evil' after she blasted the 'sick and depraved' attack in Westminster. 
She added the 'forces of evil would never drive Britain apart' and praised police and security staff who 'ran towards danger even as they encouraged others to move away'.
It is currently believed he was the only 'lone wolf' attacker. Around 20 pedestrians and three other police officers were injured.
Prime Minister Theresa May was bundled into her car by a plain-clothes police officer and driven quickly from the scene as the attack unfolded. She chaired a meeting of the Government's emergency Cobra Committee tonight.
Scotland Yard said the attack, which comes a year to the day after the atrocities in Brussels, is being treated 'as a terrorist incident'.
Witness Jayne Wilkinson said: 'We were taking photos of Big Ben and we saw all the people running towards us, and then there was an Asian guy in about his 40s carrying a knife about seven or eight inches long.
'And then there were three shots fired, and then we crossed the road and looked over. The man was on the floor with blood.
'He had a lightweight jacket on, dark trousers and a shirt. He was running through those gates, towards Parliament, and the police were chasing him.'
Her partner David Turner added: 'There was a stampede of people running out. You saw the people and you thought 'what the hell is going on'.' 
Foreign Office minister Tobias Ellwood was among those who rushed to help the policeman who had been stabbed. 
Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
It's a sad day for Britain, but not surprising since this was a muslim attack inside a city where there is a muslim mayor and who has said that terrorism is thing that can happen in a big city so deal with it.

The Shame Of Sanctuary Cities

From the Washington Times: Homeland Security officials have identified 118 different sanctuary cities across the U.S., according to the first edition of President Trump’s new name-and-shame policy, released Monday, that suggested Clark County in Nevada and Nassau County in New York were likely the worst offenders in the first week.
During that period, from Jan, 28 through Feb. 3, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it became aware of some 206 illegal immigrants whom sanctuaries refused to turn over. ICE said it expects that number to grow as it learns of more names.
Los Angeles refused to turn over a convicted arsonist from Mexico, while Philadelphia balked at cooperating on a Jamaican man accused of murder.
The numbers in the new report already show a major change from the Obama administration, which required illegal immigrants to have major convictions on their records to be a target for deportation. Instead, under Mr. Trump those charged with crimes — but not yet convicted for them — are being targeted, and the bar for criminal behavior earning deportation is lower.
Of the 206 people known to have been shielded by sanctuaries, just 87 were convicted of their key charges at this point. The rest were at the level of charges.
“There’s a clear public safety issue here,” said one Homeland Security official, briefing reporters on the numbers ahead of their release.
Domestic violence, drunken driving, drug offenses and sexual or aggravated assaults dominated the list. There were some striking cases as well, including the Riverside Regional Jail in Hopewell City, Virginia, which released a convicted rapist, and three men — two in Texas and one in Oregon — convicted of indecent exposure.
In Maryland, Montgomery County and Prince George’s County each released men from El Salvador charged with assault. Both counties are on ICE’s sanctuary city list.
Not only are these sanctuary cities endangering their own citizens, they also endanger the rest of us if these criminals decide to move elsewhere and their criminal past is not known until they break another law, which probably will happen.

Not All Illegal Drug Sellers Are Young Gangbangers

I found this to be interesting.
From the Kingman Daily Miner:  MAGNET executed three search warrants resulting in six arrests on Thursday.
The Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team, part of the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area initiative, started the day by serving a search warrant in the 3700 block of Lum Avenue.
Lenore Conrique, 52, was arrested for possession of dangerous drugs for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of narcotic drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia, felonies. Frank Conrique III, 57, was arrested on active warrants. A 58-year-old man was arrested on a failure to pay misdemeanor warrant issued by Kingman Justice Court. During a search of the property, about a half-ounce of methamphetamine was allegedly located along with other items of paraphernalia.
And this: The Mohave Area General Narcotics Enforcement Team arrested a 59-year-old Kingman man Thursday afternoon on felony drug charges.
Tony M. Anderson Sr. was taken into custody at a resident in the 5000 block of W. Camelback Loop in northeast Kingman. The felony charges include possession of dangerous drugs for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of marijuana, and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.
We think that young gangbangers are the ones dealing in meth, pot, coke and other illegal drugs but it seems like there are more older people who are also doing the selling and getting caught.
Perhaps, here in Kingman, we have an older population and that is why the older people are selling but I suspect it is happening in other cities as well.
It's truly a shame that these older adults may die in prison for doing the selling and dealing, but it serves them right.

RIP Chuck Berry

From the NY Times:  Chuck Berry, who with his indelible guitar licks, brash self-confidence and memorable songs about cars, girls and wild dance parties did as much as anyone to define rock ’n’ roll’s potential and attitude in its early years, died on Saturday. He was 90.The St. Charles County Police Department in Missouri confirmed his death on its Facebook page. The department said it responded to a medical emergency at a home and he was declared dead after lifesaving measures were unsuccessful.
While Elvis Presley was rock’s first pop star and teenage heartthrob, Mr. Berry was its master theorist and conceptual genius, the songwriter who understood what the kids wanted before they did themselves. With songs like “Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” he gave his listeners more than they knew they were getting from jukebox entertainment.
His guitar lines wired the lean twang of country and the bite of the blues into phrases with both a streamlined trajectory and a long memory. And tucked into the lighthearted, telegraphic narratives that he sang with such clear enunciation was a sly defiance, upending convention to claim the pleasures of the moment.
In “Sweet Little Sixteen,” “You Can’t Catch Me” and other songs, Mr. Berry invented rock as a music of teenage wishes fulfilled and good times (even with cops in pursuit). In “Promised Land,” “Too Much Monkey Business” and “Brown Eyed Handsome Man,” he celebrated and satirized America’s opportunities and class tensions. His rock ’n’ roll was a music of joyful lusts, laughed-off tensions and gleefully shattered icons.
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/18/arts/chuck-berry-dies-musician.html
He was a pioneer and a great singer and guitar player


Oh, Hell No!!!

They can't be serious.
From the LVRJ: Multiple speakers told a Senate panel on Friday that they would be proud to fly through Harry Reid Las Vegas International Airport if a name change proposal became a reality.
Speakers ranging from Assemblyman Nelson Araujo to DREAMer Astrid Silva testified in support of Senate Bill 174 before the Senate Government Affairs Committee.
Letters of support were also submitted from MGM Resorts International and Caesars Entertainment, as well as from congressional representatives, including U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto and Representatives Ruben Kihuen and Jacky Rosen.
There were opponents, as well, with several focusing not so much on Reid as on the attack on current airport namesake Sen. Pat McCarran, who served Nevada for decades in various public offices....
Las Vegas resident Rob Lauer said Nevadans should be ashamed for attacking McCarran, who served the state for 50 years in the state Assembly, as a member of the state Supreme Court and as a U.S. senator.
McCarran served in the Senate from 1933 to 1954, when he died of a heart attack.
In a statement after the hearing, Assembly Minority Floor Leader Paul Anderson, R-Las Vegas, said others are more deserving of such an honor.
 
“Former Senator Harry Reid’s legacy is one of bitterness, anger, petulance, divisive political maneuvering and pure partisanship,” Anderson said. http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/politics-and-government/nevada/opponents-supporters-weigh-naming-las-vegas-airport-after-harry
There is no way that the airport should be named after Reid.  Reid is a proven liar, a hater, a racist and does not have an ethical bone in his sad and sorry body.  
If they do change the name of the airport, just name it Las Vegas International Airport.

So Sad

I've been reading a book this past week, and it was hard to put down, "The Few and the Proud: Marine Corps Drill Instructors in Their Own Words" by Larry Smith.
It's a book about the drill instructors at Parris Island, which is where about half the Marines receive their basic training.
The book tells stories about drill instructor life, from about World 2 to about 2006, when the book was written.
The D.I.s were proud of their work and their job, even if we, on the outside world, for the most part, don't understand it.
It also talked about how they instilled professionalism and morals into the soon to become Marines.
Having read this and seeing the scandal the Marine Corp is going through has to be tough for the D.I.s who instructed these Marines.
From the Wall Street Journal:  A small group of Marines that contends the official military response to a nude-photo and cyber-harassment scandal has been too slow is pursuing a vigilante-like name-and-shame campaign in hopes of forcing swifter action.
Both active duty and veteran Marines said they have for days been providing names to investigators, or publishing them on the internet, identifying service members allegedly associated with websites that have posted nude photos of female Marines and harassed other service members.
“Marine leadership hasn’t done much of anything the last six years of this,” Marine veteran Shawn Wylde said in an email to The Wall Street Journal.
Marine Commandant Gen. Robert Neller said he first learned of widespread sharing of nude photographs by Marines in January, and then moved to shut down the main site involved and launch an investigation. Since then the Marine Corps and other branches have broadened the investigation and Gen. Neller has testified in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee about the matter, drawing the ire of some lawmakers who said he hasn't done enough to punish wrongdoers or their supervisors.
Mr. Wylde, who has a Facebook page with tens of thousands of followers, has been posting names of people allegedly affiliated with controversial social-media sites, including the group “Marines United,” attracting attention from investigators.
Mr. Wylde said he is acting now because of a March 10 statement of condemnation about the cyber harassment by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, a retired Marine general.
“Once General Mattis came out the other day against this online harassment we took it as a signal to move forward in exposing these creeps,” he said.
Other social media users have begun to follow his example by posting names and photos of Marines and veterans suspected of involvement in the offending online sites.
Hopefully, the scum will be found who took and posted these pictures and be punished accordingly because not only what they did was wrong but they also dishonored the Marine Corp.

It's The Same Old Same Old

I haven't blogging much, partly because I going to work today for the 12th straight day with many more days in a row to work.
But also, there isn't much to write on.
The Democrats hate President Trump and everything they find or say is an impeachable offense against Trump.
The Republicans in Congress are a bunch of weak kneed, media loving incompetent bunch of fools ever elected.
The media makes up things, distorts the truth and every news item is a Special Report.
President Trump is kicking everyone's ass-Democrats, Republicans, the media, conservatives and liberals in general. They don't know what to do with him because he is so unpredictable.
So, it's the same old same old.
And it will be for the next 4 8 years.

Even A Democrat Is Pro Trump

Not all Democrats are evil, stupid or a combination of the 2.
There are actually some good Democrats who care about the United States and Democrat Henry Cuellar is supportive of President Trump, in some ways, at least.
From the Daily Caller: Approximately 30 countries are refusing to accept the deportations of illegal immigrants who have committed serious crimes in the U.S., according to Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar.
While these countries are refusing to accept the deportations of these criminals, the U.S. government is still issuing visas and student visas to citizens of those countries, according to the Texan congressman. There is already a law on the books which allows the U.S. to hold visas from a country that is not taking back its criminals, but according to Cuellar, the U.S. is not enforcing it.
“We’re not enforcing it, which is amazing. So now my intent is to go back to our committee on appropriations and affect their funding until they do that,” Cuellar told Sharyl Attkisson, host of Full Measure, in an interview.
Cuellar, a Democratic member of the House Committee on Appropriations, told Attkisson that the Supreme Court has ruled that illegal immigrants arrested for criminal activity can only be held for a certain period of time before they must be released.
Good for Rep. Cuellar, and hopefully more Democrats and weak kneed Republicans will join him.

On Wisconsin: Badgers Defeat #1 Seed To Go To The Sweet 16

Image result for image wisconsin badger
Villanova must hate the State of Wisconsin.  First, the Marquette Warriors defeated Villanova who were #1 at the time and undefeated earlier this year in mens college basketball.
And just now, the Wisconsin Badgers, my alma mater, defeated the Wildcats, who were the #1 seed in the entire tournament, 65-62.
From Madison.com: Left for dead six days ago – and maybe even in the second half Saturday afternoon – the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team is very much alive in the NCAA tournament.
Senior forward Nigel Hayes scored 19 points and made the go-ahead basket late in the game, lifting the Badgers into the Sweet 16 for the sixth time in seven seasons with a 65-62 victory over Villanova at the KeyBank Center.Senior point guard Bronson Koenig added 17 points help UW (27-9), the No. 8 seed in the East region, pull off the upset. The Badgers will play either Florida or Virginia on Friday at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Don't know who they play or even care.  The Badgers are an NCAA tournament big boy and to bet against them is stupid.  This is the 4th year in a row they are advancing to the Sweet 16.
Go Badgers.

Guess What? Trump Pays Taxes

You would think with all the cater walling by liberals the President Trump doesn't pay taxes and steals candy from babies.
Well, guess what....Trump pays taxes, a lot of taxes.
 From the NY Daily News:   The mystery of President Trump’s taxes took a curious turn Tuesday after part of his 2005 return surfaced — showing he made more than $150 million and paid $38 million in federal income taxes.
Investigative journalist David Cay Johnston obtained what he claims to be the first two pages of Trump’s federal income tax returns.....
The documents show the President and his wife, Melania, paid $5.3 million — less than 4% of their overall income — in taxes, along with $31 million under the alternative minimum tax. That’s comes to a rate of roughly 25%. The top federal tax rate on regular income in 2005 was 35%.
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/documents-show-trump-made-150m-2005-paid-taxes-article-1.2998163
Of course, the piss ant, Rachel Maddow and friends illegally obtained the IRS forms from the politicalized IRS, something that happened during the corrupt ex-president Obama administration. 
And of course, the liberals see no problem with the illegal behavior of an IRS agent.

And The Democrats Still Don't Get it

While the GOP insists on self destruction during the health care debate, the democrats have decided to commit Hari Kari with their behavior towards illegal immigration.
From the LVRJ:  WASHINGTON — On the eve of legal hearings, Democrats in the U.S. Senate have filed legislation to rescind President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban for people entering the United States from six countries.
The executive order issued by Trump has been challenged by Hawaii and other states. Opponents there say the order suspends a refugee program and bans citizens from six Muslim countries from receiving visas to enter the United States. http://m.reviewjournal.com/news/politics-and-government/nevada/senate-democrats-push-bill-rescind-trump-s-travel-ban
And then there is this from the LVRJ:  A bill that would help undocumented juveniles living in Nevada seek and obtain federal immigration relief won bipartisan support in the Assembly on Tuesday.
Assembly Bill 142 would allow state district courts to make findings that a juvenile who came to the United States without documentation is entitled to seek immigration relief, or special status, under federal law.
The Democrats are going out of their way to act out to out stupid the stupid GOP .
The GOP are acting like a bunch of jackals especially now that they some power and they insist on giving the Democrats either the House or Senate or both in the 2018.  Instead of just waiting for the GOP to continue to shoot themselves in the foot, the democrats    are going way out of their way to protect the criminal illegal aliens.  
Why are the democrats so stupid?  Maybe they think there will be a prize for the most stupid politician ty and the winner is.......

You Know You Are Having A Bad Day When

Now there's something you don't see everyday.

In The Real World, She Would Be Called "A Bat Shit Crazy Bitch"

Sometimes in the world, you can meet up with the most vilest, the most vulgar most bitch out there.
Fortunately, for me, I have not done so but Sean Spicer, President Trump's press secretary did over the weekend.
From Fox News: White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was in an Apple store over the weekend - just minding his business when he was set upon by a raging liberal -- a fuming feminist -- foaming at the mouth.
Heavy.com identified Mr. Spicer’s attacker as Shree Chauhan, a former educator and a child of Indian immigrants. She filmed the unrelenting verbal assault and broadcast the video on Periscope.
“You work for a fascist, how do you feel about that?” she demanded to know. “How do you feel about destroying our country, Sean? How do you feel about that? Do you feel good about the decisions you are making – about lying to the American people? Do you feel good about lying to the American people.”
Who knew there was a sound more blood-curdling than Hillary Clinton’s infamous cackling-screech?
“We have a great country. Have you helped with the Russia stuff? Are you a criminal as well? Have you committed treason, too? Just Like the president – have you committed treason too?”
According to Ms. Chauhan, Mr. Spicer responded to her unhinged diatribe by saying, “Such a great country that allows you to be here.”
Well, that alleged comment set her off again – this time in a lengthy tome published by Medium.com.
“That is racism and it is an implied threat,” she wrote. “Think about the sheer audacity of Mr. Spicer to say that to my face with a smile, knowing that he is being recorded on video and the position of power he holds in our government.”
How about the sheer audacity of a berserk whacko going full-blown bat-crap bonkers inside an Apple store? http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2017/03/13/todd-starnes-hey-sean-spicer-was-attacked-by-raging-feminist-too.html
99.9% of of the people, if they were verbally raped by this clown, Chauhan, would have pushed her to get away from this psycho bitch.
But since it was screaming at a conservative, well, hey, no harm, no foul.  If this would have happened to say, a ex-president Obama's press secretary, the media would have been protecting Obama's secretary as opposed to giving what this creature a pass.
Thank goodness that Spicer has much more class than this supposed human being and pretty much ignored it,.

And Bill Clinton Did The Same Thing

From the NY Daily News: President Trump to Preet Bharara: You’re fired.
The corruption-busting U.S. attorney was canned Saturday by the White House after spurning the administration’s call for his resignation one day earlier.
“I did not resign,” Bharara tweeted Saturday. “Moments ago I was fired. Being the US Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life.”
The federal prosecutor, one of 46 U.S. attorneys asked to submit his resignation Friday, apparently forced Attorney General Jeff Sessions to fire him rather than walk away quietly.  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/preet-bharara-fired-manhattan-u-s-attorney-article-1.2995175
But hey, apparently it wasn't a scandal when Bill Clinton did the same thing in 1993.
From the National Review: It’s only natural that a president will want his power wielded by his own appointees, whom he trusts to carry out his policy program. In March 1993, Janet Reno began her tenure as President Bill Clinton’s attorney general by summarily firing United States attorneys for 93 of the 94 federal districts (one, Michael Chertoff, was retained in New Jersey, at the request of Democratic Senator Bill Bradley). That is more than twice as many as Trump attorney general Jeff Sessions fired on Friday. Indeed, there were only 46 Obama-appointed U.S. attorneys left for Sessions to relieve because Obama appointees fully understood that this is the way things work. Many of them had already moved on, in the expectation that the president elected in November would replace them — an expectation that became a virtual certainty once it was clear that this change of administrations would be a change of parties, and visions.
So, it is a headline maker and a scandal for the NY Daily News but it shouldn't be.
Just more fake news from the brain dead media.

Hillary Arrested!!

Headline from Drudge:





INTRUDER AT WHITE HOUSE
DRUDGE REPORT
I guess this is a slow day in the news at "The Drudge Report.
And the headline is a bit misleading.  The actual intruder is Jonathon Tran from California, not Hillary.
But this part is scary: "The police report, obtained by CNN, offers a detailed description of the incident. White House security footage showed Tran jumping the face at the northwest courtyard of the Treasury Building, which is adjacent to the White House, the report said. He was not detected, however, until approached by a uniformed Secret Service officer." http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/11/politics/man-breeches-white-house/index.html
What if this guy was an actual terrorist, not some California nutcase?
And if he blew himself and President Trump up, the left would cheer and media join right in.

She's Back!!

Sarah Cornett-Ching
Just over a year ago, I wrote about a new driver, Sarah Cornett-Ching (http://lasvegasbadger.blogspot.com/2016/02/the-new-danica-patrick.html)
She drove in the ARCA races and did a nice job until she got a concussion, just like Dale Earnhardt.
She did not get the publicity like Dale Jr.,, which I am sure is fine with Sarah.  With Dale Jr., it seemed like every time he had to do to the bathroom, NASCAR.com broke in with a live report.
Well, here is an update on Miss Parker-Ching from ESPN:  Six months after Sarah Cornett-Ching suffered a debilitating concussion in an ARCA race at Kentucky Speedway, the 25-year-old driver returned to competition with a record-tying sixth-place finish in a super late model event at a North Carolina short track. It was a performance that left the Canadian excited once again about racing.
"The race itself went really well, better than I expected and better than I think a lot of people would have thought," Cornett-Ching said. "That's reassuring and I'm super excited to get to the next race."In Saturday's Pro All Stars Series race at the four-tenths-mile Southern National Motorsports Park in Lucama, North Carolina, Cornett-Ching battled Tanner Thorson for fifth in the closing laps before settling for sixth. Her sixth-place finish equaled the performances of Tayla Orleans and Kenzie Ruston, making them the highest finishing female drivers in PASS history....
Since her ARCA accident in late September 2016, Cornett-Ching has worked with Dr. Jerry Petty, a Charlotte-based neurosurgeon. Petty is affiliated with the International Council of Motorsports and is an independent neurological consultant for the NFL and NFL Players Association.
"Thank goodness for Dr. Petty. He's been a godsend," Cornett-Ching said.
During her recovery, Cornett-Ching used iRacing, the premier online motorsports racing simulation Website. She also had numerous private test sessions at the 0.363-mile Hickory Motor Speedway, located about 30 minutes from her team's Denver, North Carolina, race shop. During those tests, Cornett-Ching would run laps until she lost her concentration.    http://www.espn.com/espnw/sports/article/18858014/sarah-cornett-ching-optimistic-return-racing?addata=espn:nascar:index 
I wish her luck and good fortune from these concussions and hopefully, she will start to get NASCAR rides along with ARCA rides.  She seems like a nice person and not just a pretty face.  
After all, with NASCAR , Danica Patrick is just another pretty face, with just a little it of talent.

Democrats Are Praying This Happens To Trump

From the NY Post: In a historic, unanimous ruling Friday, South Korea’s Constitutional Court formally removed impeached President Park Geun-hye from office over a corruption scandal that has plunged the country into political turmoil and worsened an already serious national divide.
It capped a stunning fall for Park, the country’s first female leader, who rode a wave of lingering conservative nostalgia for her late dictator father to victory in 2012, only to see her presidency crumble as millions of furious protesters filled the nation’s streets.
The ruling by the eight-member panel opens her up to possible criminal proceedings — prosecutors have already named her a criminal suspect — and makes her South Korea’s first democratically elected leader to be removed from office since democracy replaced dictatorship in the late 1980s.
It also deepens South Korea’s political and security uncertainty as the country faces existential threats from perennial rival North Korea, reported economic retaliation from a China furious about Seoul’s cooperation with the US on an anti-missile system, and questions in Seoul about the new Trump administration’s commitment to the countries’ decades-long security alliance.  http://nypost.com/2017/03/10/south-koreas-president-formally-removed-by-court/
You know, when the Democrats found out about this, they began to window shop for a judge to impeach and throw President Trump out of office.

Just Curious

For the past 8 years, ex-president  Obama wowed the world with his picks and filling out his NCAA men's basketball bracket.
Now, what will the mainstream media do, since President Trump probably won't fill out a bracket Will they:
1.  Mock Trump for not filling out a bracket?
2.  Beg ex-president Obama for his picks?
3.  Run "breaking news" if Trump does make picks?
4.  Completely ignore Trump for making the picks?
5.  If Trump does make a bracket, he will be laughed at and mocked if he misses just 1 pick during the entire tournament.
6. Say Trump is a wimp if he doesn't fill out a bracket and that the future of the United states is at risk because he didn't fill out the bracket?
7.  If Trump fills out the bracket, he will be ripped on for wasting taxpayer money because he did it on the taxpayer time.

Somehow, I think all have possibilities of happening, no matter what Trump does.
