"The number of illegal votes cast across 50 states is expected to rise to over 7 million by the time the chunky chica takes the stage and belts out her tune"

Wow,cool,info-wars is here. I saw the guys from STROMFRONT a couple of months ago...and now the INFOWAR geeks have joined. Awesome!!!!

JOM's finally becoming an interesting site.

I love the info-war guys, but you gotta explain to them that the things inside their heads can sometimes be different from the things outside their heads and without charts and illustrations it's really, really hard, so I rarely engage.

Hey,have you noticed how damn hot the Na-sorry, the alt-right women are? Dang man,I might change affiliation on that alone.

Liberal women are....sigh....jesus.......

I was wondering earlier is Huma is on a suicide watch list. Her pervert husband divorces her (and provides no income stream) and her BFF has run off into the sunset. I'm not sure Sharia law would approve.

The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week. The Republican presidential campaign is prompting an exodus among left-leaning Americans who fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, pay taxes, and live according to the Constitution.

Canadian border residents say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, liberal arts majors, global-warming activists, and “green” energy proponents crossing their fields at night.

“I went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn,” said southern Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota. “He was cold, exhausted and hungry, and begged me for a latte and some free-range chicken. When I said I didn’t have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?”

From Lyle: http://hotair.com/archives/2016/11/22/dems-say-maybe-identity-politics-cost-us-the-election/

From the article, the Bolshevik grifter from Vermont, the venerable Bernardo Occupado said:
“It’s not good enough for someone to say, ‘I’m a woman! Vote for me!’” No, that’s not good enough. What we need is a woman who has the guts to stand up to Wall Street, to the insurance companies, to the drug companies, to the fossil fuel industry,” the Vermont independent senator and former Democratic presidential candidate said in a not-so-subtle rebuke to Hillary Clinton.”


Sanders is the kind of elected representative the new POTUS needs to stand up to.


May I suggest a line item veto on any legislation this grifter signs onto?


His misdirection rhetoric holds that all the evil in the world comes from “corporations” (funny, I own 11 small corporations and I am not an evil guy.)

The law of the land? Who cares? Corporations must be "Stood up to." (Code for sacked, pillaged, destroyed, and owners badgered and jailed by the IRS).

Baby? Bathwater? Not the same things, Bernardo the Grifter.)

Bernardo has a convenient paint job as an “Independent”.

It’s a ruse.

He has his hands in the taxpayers pocket with the rationale: “The government is robbing you blind so elect me and I’ll funnel some of that dirty cash back to you.”


His big VA campaign issue is particularly stinky. He accused Republicans of obstruction because his VA legislation was voted down.

It had the Clinton Foundation disease and was rightfully voted down.

Seems like Bernardo’s bill would have been top heavy in “construction projects”--- a huge materials skimming opportunity for his “development commission” cronies running their Agenda 21 scams across the country, but especially in Vermont

(notably in Burlington where Bernardo got his start. I know those people after having lived there for 9 years and being destroyed politically by their progressive machine--- I was an architect of the first “Human Rights Council” there but resisted allowing it to become a rubber stamp for the progressive “gentrification/affordable housing scams” run by Bernardo’s local proteges).

Then there is Bernardo’s lovely bride What’s-Her-Name.

Her contribution to “democracy” of late, besides digesting her weight six times over in rubber chicken campaign fundraising dinners, was to get herself onto the Board of Directors of a non-profit educational concern called Burlington College (in Vermont).

BC runs a lot of continuing education style programs.


Bernardo’s Gift from God saw fit to “raise money” for the college.

Developed a large “donor pledge list” allegedly on the hook for $5 million that was going to the college’s “endowment.”

Ya right.

Anyhow, Bernardo “found” $5 million in taxpayer cash which he engineered into a “matching grant” for the college.


But, lo and behold, the donors never coughed up their pledges and, mysteriously, the matching grant check was cashed but never deposited into the Burlington College account.

Three-card Monty anyone?

Bernie ends up buying a $600,000 summer home in North Hero Vermont making it his third.

Stinky.

Bernardo is a taxpayer cash gatekeeper with both hands on the faucet. His "followers" speak of his charisma.

Bernardo can barely manage his nose hair infestation. And when he speaks "at you" up close he has the appeal of a gum-diseased distant uncle "eating his baloney with a fork."

He is one of many Proggos that is going to get out of the way following Trump's first term.


The flashlight on Bernardo and others will be too bright....the best disinfectant, no?

James D

KK, the flashlight would be an OK disinfectant.

Personally, I'd prefer hydrofluoric acid, sprayed from fire hoses at high pressure. I think that'd be a lot more effective.

An erstwhile JOMer weighs in:

https://pjmedia.com/blog/the-hysterical-left-is-making-nevertrumpers-reconsider/

Now, I didn't like Trump because he struck me as authoritarian: a big-government lover; a crony capitalist who bragged about using his money for political contributions to buy cooperation; an opportunist who changed his political positions depending on the audience who was pandering to the audience he thought had the best chance of falling for his pander; and a person building a cult of personality with an appeal that depended on a policy of "othering" certain racial, religious, and ethnic groups.

In other words, I found Trump to be not easily distinguishable from Clinton or Obama.

Porchlight---

I hear ya. I might end up playin it just to spite Hamrod: "Yesterday's gone! Yesterday's gone!" Such a savory moment.

There are some other songs I won't ever be responsible for playing.... those Earth, Wind and Fire tunes favored by the B3 and the BHR. Those tunes were worn out when those two moved in and began soiling the White House. Now they've been reduced to propaganda ditties.

When the Rat was campaigning in Oakland back in 2007, I went to one of his "appearances." He took the stage to Marvin Gaye's timeless classic "What's Goin On?"

He stood on that stage in his Il Duce chinny chin pose. Truly pukeworthy. He corrupts everything he touches.

Fortunately I deprogrammed my brain and it coughed up that mind worm so I can still enjoy MG's music.

dublindave's recent methane emission re illegal votes in California:

Yes, I'm still floating off my college football high. Not letting the Jaguars (or politics) bother me in the slightest and, for pro football, I am fondly remembering my childhood and early adult days cheering on Jacksonville's own (and Florida A&M's own) Bullet Bob Hayes and the Dallas Cowboys. Go Dak Go!

Yeah, baby! And I appreciate the superior hand y'all currently have. Our game against the Noles will tell us how far we've come and our game against Bama, as the current gold standard, will tell us how far we have yet to go. The challenge will not be easy, and success is not a given, but that's (in large part) why we so love the competition.

Dave in MA:

Reagan did it 1980. (From Wikipedia.)

The Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization or PATCO was a United States trade union that operated from 1968 until its decertification in 1981 following an illegal strike that was broken by the Reagan Administration. According to labor historian Joseph A. McCartin, the 1981 strike and defeat of PATCO was "one of the most important events in late twentieth century U.S. labor history".[1]

That's an internet source. I'll go one better. In 1980, my father became chief of a major air traffic control center in the midwest. His third order of business after assuming his duties was to process the terminations of 2000 air traffic controllers throughout the region.

Not only was the union decertified, employees were terminated for breaking the law.

A first step in controlling public sector union nonsense would be to make it illegal for any part of a public sector union to strike.

Old Lurker

Dave "I wish that there was a way to get rid of public sector unions."

JFK inflicted them on us at the Federal level with the stroke of his pen on an Executive Order in 1962. I assume DJT could with a stroke of his pen, rescind that order.

At the S&L level, I assume politicians have the power to ban them there too, just as FDR warned in 1933 they should be banned.

Dude, I'm just quoting numbers. He lost the popular vote by 1.7 million votes. You have to go all the way back to Ruther .b Hayes for that kind of popular vote loss. And the number's growing. It might get to 2.5....maybe 3 million votes.

Jesus, Billy.


He is for all intent purposes the President by a technicality, so in a way he's not really the President.

I take your word for it. You guys won the Presidential election outright on a technicality.

Is it fair to say you won on a 'technicality' at least, seen as she got almost 2 million more votes. I mean, that seems like a technicality. It's still a win though, but more Americans voted for her.


Even if you don't agree with that would you agree that he hardly has a mandate?

Old Lurker

Makes sense, Jimmy. Trump can call it the "FDR Government Employee Union Executive Order".

"Effective this day, January 20, 2017, all unions representing Federal employees at any agency are hereby disbanded and notice is hereby given that any contracts entered into with said unions are null and void.

Effective this day, notice is given that no Federal funds or guarantees shall be given to any state or local government which fails to mirror the action in paragraph one above at their level."

Buckeye... Notre Dame has lost its way. It really started stinkin' when the liberal priesthood at the top and on their board decided to invite the pro-abortion Bath House Rat to campus as a commencement speaker.

It was bad enough we had Jimmuh Dimmuh Carter for a commencement speaka in 1977. Talk about dull. That scene was where I made my famous prediction that Reagan was going to win in 1980 because Mr. Peanut head was going to face plant.

Anywho... I did my own share of "helping" the football team. I won't mention the year or the names of players I took tests for (against my will LOL) in survey biology course. They weren't starters but they were on scholarship... one a hs all-american from Cleveland, the other a hs all-american from Seattle.

Wasn't pretty. There is a huge disconnect between academic standards and talented ballers recruited for the major sports at the Dome. So much appearance to maintain with the whole graduation rate scam. It's impressive that so many players graduate on their own--- but most, the lion's majority, never play a down. They are the slaughterhouse crews that practice against the bluechippers, day in and day out. So the guys who get caught up in the cheating path are a tiny minority and probably shouldn't be in that locker room to begin with because they are not academically viable.

Speaking of locker rooms, it's ridiculous to think that white female trainers with access to black five star athletes are not going to get roped into doing compromising deeds. Females shouldn't be anywhere near a college male team locker room, meeting room, or dormitory--- especially at Notre Dame where the players that play are considered gods.

Too much hinky stuff can happen. And males and females are weak when it comes to interracial hinkiness. Just how the world works. Believe it or else, some of the female students at ND have never had up-close friendships with black men. I'm not insinuating anything here sexual....there is just a cultural factor where "in the name of diversity" the white girls abandon their boundaries, and the males involved get over, socially and in other ways.

I doubt ND will open themselves even to any internal scrutiny on interracial hinkiness pertaining to anything going on there. When I was there in the 70s, I was addressed by nearly every white student in my dorm with some kind of racial epithet. It was normal. I didn't like it but that was what was acceptable in NY, PENN, NJ, CT, IN, ILL, CA, (no room for all 50 here).

Then there were the prized black football players who led us to the National Title in 73. Five freshman. Four out of five were expelled before the sophomore season during the summer because one of their white female "tutors" insinuated there was threat of sexual assault or "feeling uncomfortable" with the four in a dorm room study session one afternoon.

The student body was never informed. They just made those champions gone. An incredible set of athletes with extremely low academic viability.

It was weird and very hush hush. I don't expect has changed.

We do seem to be lowering the bar to admit the criminal element as ballers. Heard from Dad that there were illegal weapons charges pressed against one of our star defensive prospects and he got the boot.

Big money means big risks with big hopes of not gettin' caught.

There's always bingo, Padre!

It's alt.right, DublinDave - don't go away mad. And never let anything ruin good music.

I think you can argue that his election wasn't a mandate, per se, but the cumulative gains by the Republicans over the last eight years in Congress and the state houses makes a mandate argument plausible from a different angle. Of course, who needs an electoral mandate when we own all the levers of power, amirite?

Heh heh. The stench of "liberation theology" used to make me clench. Now Roma has its own Che wannabe on the throne, so the LTs at ND can walk about openly "in the spirit of forgiveness."

There is a hard core at ND, both in the alumni and senior faculty ranks, who are keepers of the faith--- meaning, one doesn't slaughter one's progeny or pay homage or cash to anybody who does, advocates, or legislates to make it possible.

Alas, they, like many of us, have been ignored and/or shouted down by the libber Catholics with their jungle fever.

Had a red hat on that matched the plush velour interior, was "broken down in a 3/4 lean" with a big smile on his face.

We have some very generous alumni. Some even have Lincoln dealerships.

Did Trump curb stomp Pinch? Inquiring a minds etc.

"Trump's suggestion provoked anger, support and even hilarity in Britain, with one lawmaker, Conservative Simon Burns, joking that perhaps Britain should suggest Hillary Clinton as its preferred choice as ambassador to London."

I think appointing Hillary as the US Ambassador to Libya might be a good idea. Set her up in the Consulate in Benghazi...give her all the security she thought Ambassador Steven's needed...appoint Susan Rice as her spokeswoman from Benghazi...and for community outreach, invite in the locals for a "Free Video" meet and greet, every night, just after "the sweetest sound Obama ever heard---the evening call to prayer," even if it's just an invite to guys out for a walk.

I’ve been in the Army for [years], but I’m getting out. There are a couple of reasons, but the idea of working for a Commander in Chief like The Donald is pretty upsetting.

Self deport. It's the right thing to do.

KK, the flashlight would be an OK disinfectant.

Personally, I'd prefer hydrofluoric acid, sprayed from fire hoses at high pressure. I think that'd be a lot more effective.>

You need to patent the handling system for that. We could tag team that effort....I help you with the hydrofluoric project and you help me with my "Dash Mounted Laser Death Ray" .

Fix?

We wouldn't want anyone in the Transgender Army "upset". Don't let the door hit you in the ass Forrest.

I imagine the servicemen and women quoted in this article are not representative of how most in the military feel about President Trump

You mean they didn't just randomly sample, but cherry-picked a few misfits? Shocking.

An article like that ought to be sufficient evidence of malice toward Trump on the part of the publication.

GUS: Kevlar, like everything else in life...turn turn turn....Pope Francis de la Chavez, has a limited shelf life. the CHURCH and it's pews, are not filled with the Marxists and libs that Pope Chavez thinks. This too shall pass. Anyone who actually reads WeeWeeDouchebagDavey's tripe is cuckoo for cocoa puffs.

Ya, the ol' give and get is a fact of life. I remember when Vatican II washed away the trappings of "the Old Church." It's the only thing I can compare today's liberal shaking to.

As long as we don't have to bendover, I can do the necessary dance.

Re DD... just checking the strop action on these new swords. ;)

Jimmy, the LIBTARDS can come along, but they'll have to ride in the back.

RIGHT???

Buckeye,

Momma's doing well at the moment. Pretty well pain free and able to get dressed in coat and boats and mittens even with her cast, and drive to the grocery store etc. The gals won't be home until Christmas but momma has her best friends home for Thanksgiving---Scout and Fry:)

Chris Stirewalt just told us on FOX how Obama "had to come up with, though at times challenging and at times contentious, a working arrangement with the reporters who covered him."

Right Chris, "Challenging and Contentious." Wonder why when I think of Obama's relationship to the press the words that pop into my mind aren't "Challenging and Contentious," but are instead "I was looking at his pant leg and his perfectly creased pant and I’m thinking, a) he’s going to be president and b) he’ll be a very good president.”

What is this "Challenging and Contentious" of which you speak?

The challenging and contentious was over which reporter got to kiss his butt first.

"Re DD... just checking the strop action on these new swords"


Ah here,enough of that now, enough of that now.There's no need for violence, no need, enough of that.

You guys won on a technicality, you should be happy. You won all branches of government, now you'll be able to.....let Hillary Clinton go free. And......build a wall/fence/wall type fence thing with maybe some drones to fill in the blanks. And.....dismantle Obamcare....but keep 75% of it. And drain the swamp by....installing Washington insiders in top positions.

Ease up with the threats lads,I'm like 62 and me aul heart can't take it...ease up,ease up there. I'm just a troll.

Wow, daddy. So glad to learn "compound fracture" shouldn't strike the fear of old.

Times contentious? Like what, who would get the honor of sitting next to Julie Pace-AP in the front row?

CO was a very close win for Hillary. Gary Johnson got 5% of the vote.

So its odd how beatty is about 25 years older than the character he is playing in his latest play for relevance.

Good column by Chaco. Thanks for the link, Lyle.

I've been doing my best to not think about it, but this pizzagate looks to me like the real deal.

At some point over the next eighteen months, I fear we are all going to be questioning how we allowed ourselves blindspots so big as to let those monstrosities happen.

The reckoning will be ugly.

Good news just in time for Thanksgiving.

It has now been scientifically proven that women who are a few to several pounds heavier than they would like to be live----significantly longer than the men that mention this to them.
