Just how did former usher Angela Reid make no secret of the fact that she was a die-hard Hillary supporter. I would have assumed it would have been difficult to assess the allegiances of such a consummate professional.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Davod,

I assume the Easter egg thing was a clue.

Good Morning! MM,re: the wooden Easter eggs,recall that they are made in Maine. The owner of the company reminded the White House about the deadline to manufacture the eggs. The company owner wasn't trying to make a big deal about the situation. You are correct that the usher should have been aware of preparing for the Easter Egg roll. Of course,the media made a story about the poor planning,blah,blah. Did Michelle personally order the Easter eggs in previous years? I doubt it. Geez. If the usher was an Obama loyalist,it was probably deliberate.

A "Semmel" is Austrian for roll.

Funny on a couple of different levels.

Sundance: the threat from North Korea is national security issue number one.

Across the board, voters think North Korea poses the greatest danger to the country today. ISIS comes in second among Republicans and independents, while Democrats put Russia above ISIS on the threat list.
Dunno whether to roll my eyes, or start my own ledge.

For all those native Austrian speakers...

That's just how I semmel.

I prefer Chinese military action re the Norks.

"Semmel" probably comes from the Latin "simila," meaning fine wheat flour, from which we also get "semolina" and the English simnel cake.

REAL FAKE LIES

Politico

"But three months after Trump moved into the White House, at least nine people who worked on his transition have registered as lobbyists, highlighting holes in the president’s pledge to keep people from cashing in on government service.

Many are registered to lobby the same agencies or on the same issues they worked on during the transition, a POLITICO review of lobbying disclosures found."

REAL FAKE LIES

Lol.

Trump is the fault of Democrats for not putting a better candidate out. Bwaaaaaaaaa. Now THAT'S accountability

Miss Marple the Deplorable

narciso,

I think that after the war, Britain was so much changed that it was rather easy to lure people away from the church.

In our country this happened about 20 years later, around the time of Vietnam.

Part of the problem (and this goes back to that Codevilla article Clarice posted the other day) is that all of the social movers and shakers (Hollywood and recording industry, news organizations, universities) are ALL either anti-religion or ignorant of it.

When I was a kid I remember watching Perry Como's Christmas special, which would always end with a recreation of the Nativity complete with Perry singing Ave Maria. The biggest movies were things like Ben-Hur and The Ten Commandments.

EWTN used to run old shows, produced in the 1950's, which starred Catholic stars like Raymond Burr and Loretta Young, who donated their appearances to the priest who produced the program. (It was the priest who coined the phrase "The family that prays together stays together.")

My grade school principal opened our day with the Pledge of Allegiance and the Lord's Prayer which we recited as he said it over the intercom. Every year the school system put on the Easter Sunrise Service for the township, which included a recreation of the Passion complete with crosses and a tomb.

None of this happens any more, and it is the pressure of the social influence types and legal challenges which have ended it. I consider it a form of soft persecution.

Most mainline churches, rather than standing firm, have been infiltrated by left-leaning people so that the doctrine has been watered down and people are preached to about the environment and other such clap trap.

Oh, one other reason the secularization was delayed in the US was the popularity of Billy Graham. His crusades delayed the secularization for a generation.

Along with Hitchens, I miss hearing the Christmas story from the King James version, which like Linus I can recite from memory.

Get your ass to church!

I just love the 'saved' with their superior attitude of holiness and righteousness.

When they hawk their wares, I just smile inwardly.

White House's Office of Digital Strategy, a department that — it must be noted — did not exist until the Obama administration.

That just means that somebody the Ferret hired, since Zippy was too fucking dumb to concentrate on anything more strategic than SportCenter, recognized the importance of the medium in an only slightly behind the curve manner. I remember having a good laugh when Romney Fangurrrlll #1 pointed out how his sons were really really smart about social media along with the rest of the latter day hepcats. That worked out as well as expected.

Get your ass to church!

The NYT IS SHOCKED, to find that Obama is giving expensive speeches to Wall Street, just like Hillary Clinton, except, of course, he gets paid more.
These guys will just never get it. In fact, all over the Internet, Obama “liberals” are having mini meltdowns over Obama’s $400K speaking fee with Cantor Fitzgerald.
They think he has sold out. That he has eschewed the anti-materialism of his community organizer days. It’s just… unseemly.
Oh, please. He is the same Barack Obama he always was. He wasn’t a particularly good politician, his policies were tone deaf and he was the guy who presided over the devastation of the R&D industry. It happened during his tenure and he said nary a peep about it. Weren’t there rumors several months ago about how he was going to become a venture capitalist and prey on the hard work and patents of my friends and former colleagues trying to keep their heads above water in biotech startups? It wouldn’t surprise me a bit.
The guy who said he stood between the bankers and the pitchforks is going to reap the rewards of the inadequate Wall Street reform bill. I told you he is a shmoozer who thought of the White House as just another rung in his climb to the top of the corporate ladder.
Anyone who bought the incorruptibility of Obama should be scratching their heads right now. Truthfully, they should have scratched their heads before this. They should have asked, why the meteoric rise for a guy who had very little experience and no record of controversial votes? He was as much a blank slate as Neil Gorsuch.
The ultimate tofu president finally has revealed that he’s got a flavor after all. He had to wait eight years to show it but it has been there all along.
Time to stop clutching pearls. He’s flesh and blood and greedy like everyone else.

Yes one must affirm the lie about mutilation it seems to be a thing,

WOOOOT!

But on a Thursday afternoon that will live in infamy, nothing could stop the illogical momentum in the U.S. House of Representatives of a bill labelled the AHCA, which I'm pretty sure stands for the Unaffordable I-Don't-Care Act, and which is arguably the worst piece of legislation to win passage in Congress -- albeit by the narrowest 217-213 margin -- since the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850.

Bull on that WaPo.

Republicans fought every jot and tittle of Obamacare, even denying us the right to negotiate drug prices like VA.

They designed it to fail, but still couldn't kill it, but they could hobble progress. And that they did with sadistic glee.

Islam is the bastard son of Judaism, and today's Jews are the former In-laws of Christianity.

Islam grew like other exotic religions because of disaffection with traditional modes of worship which did not enlighten society as intended.

Most cats are probably larger than yogi, narciso! That's the case at our house but puppy doesn't seem fearful of them. My cats are so used to new foster dogs coming and going that they just yawn at the puppy and probably don't realize she's a permanent family member now.

Janet had the most astute comment on the problem that I have seen.

She pointed out there is no salvation in Islam, unless you are a perfect believer (very difficult, especially for the poor) or you enter into jihad.

Islam needs reform or conversion of their people.

Politico

"Republicans are most concerned about growing signs of Democratic intensity. Over the past few weeks, a series of formidable Democratic candidates have announced bids against Republican incumbents. The group includes Jennifer Wexton of Virginia, Jason Crow of Colorado, and Chrissy Houlahan of Pennsylvania. All are running in suburban districts, the kind of areas where Trump’s falling political fortunes could be a weight on GOP incumbents."

Formidable Dems indeed!

I love how the Dem sheep fall for it! Every. Single. Time.
Back in Nov they were told Hillary was a "formidable" candidate. They all fell for that one too. Hey, all you Dems! Be sure to get in on the ground floor for the Chelsea tsunami! I assure you, she is going to be a fomidable candidate! Especially after she boosts her street cred by undergoing fem gen mutilation. Since it's such a hep, cool procedure and all.

Formidable! I can personally guarantee it.
