For anyone who has Amazon Prime, I highly recommend watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It's a comedy about a Jewish housewife in the late 1950s who becomes a standup comic. My wife and I binged watched Season 1 last week and Season 2 was released yesterday.

WSJ: "Democratic leaders set to take the majority in the U.S. House next month said they may refuse to seat North Carolina Republican Mark Harris until an investigation into alleged voting fraud in the election is resolved."

On that wall bill:

Remember when Kevin McCarthy went all over fox talking about his standalone bill to fund the wall and he got all the pom poms to support his leadership bid? Well, he just shepherded through the House the final cave on that as majority leader.

In your 5:21 story, Kev:

Tom R: that show's earned much popular acclaim.

I remember the aftershocks the East Bay felt after the Alaska Quake of '64.

One rumbled through on a Sunday afternoon while Paw was in his chair, and got moved 12 feet across the living room floor. I was 9 and very freaked. Our beagle, Denny was barkin like a fiend outside.

I sent a pix of the UP 4141 loco to one of my buds from there. This was his response:

Yeah, that’s a classy tribute to Geo HW Bush. UP did the paint-up back in 2005, for the unveiling of a display at the Bush library called Trains: Tracks of the Iron Horse .. and prolly also in anticipation of his eventual funeral. So they had it in storage, ready for the event.

Sounds like that senate loophole legislation to fund the wall is designed to go no where.

I’m tired of politicians. Shut down the government - shut it all down and send Paul Ryan home early.

We only had time to watch the first episode of Season 2. Its on par quality wise with Season 1.

Stuff like that.

I hope Trump has a national televised event where he vetoes that dogshit spending bill and orders those lazy loads to work around the clock to fund the wall. Don't go home for Christmas? Too fucking bad. Also whatever RINO outfit Ryan is going to should be targeted by Whitaker to have every stiff dick in the DOJ ready to ram it to the hilt. Scrutinize every SarBox test from every year along with all tax schedules. Every journal entry should go under the microscope until they send Paulie back to the Weinermobile.

Man ruins Christmas festival by screaming ‘there's no Santa’ at kids

A Florida man stood in the middle of the annual Cape Coral Festival of Lights over the weekend and yelled “There’s no Santa Clause,” while holding up a sign.

The unidentified man seen in cell phone video captured on Saturday continues his tirade telling kids their parents are lying to them about Kris Kringle while the children are waiting in line to visit Santa and waving his sign -- which cannot be read in the footage.

According to WFLA, the man stood in the area for hours yelling and making children cry.

Pelosi Rejects All Funding For Border Wall

House Speaker-Designate Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Thursday that any and all funding for Trump’s border wall will be rejected.

Fox News Congress reporter Chad Pergram asked Pelosi, “Would you be willing support some degree of wall funding if you got a permanent bona fide solution on DACA?”

“No,” Pelosi quickly shot back without skipping a beat.

Time for the pen and phone.

POTUS should veto all the Democrats' sh*t. Bye. Starve them out. Start by nuking their policy proposals at the State of the Union. Bury them before they can zombie walk.

The Infamous Ignatz

--I've still seen no 4-D explanation as to why Mueller handed off the Podesta case to SDNY but kept the equally unrelated Manafort tax/financial shenanigans from 2012 for himself.--

The point of an SC is that an administration can't investigate itself.
Since Manafort was Trump's campaign chairman while Podesta was not, presumably the reasoning is the objection to Trump's DOJ investigating Manafort does not apply to Podesta.

The Dem candidate in 2020 will be Beto.
Kamala will give him a run for his money but Obama and Holder will groom him and get him across the finish line.
It will not be another woman candidate.
I agree with Robin.
I am tired of politics.Dont want to hear any trashing of individuals or a party just because they failed to do something.
The ZHouse did vote to eliminate Obamacare.
The Senate thanks to McCain and the other Repubs didn’t have a viable bill to vote on.
Immigration should have decided years ago when 43 was President.
The wall can be funded in spite of Congress.
Use some military funds to secure it and let the Dem House stew in their own pot of ineptness.

i hope it is O'Rourke. There is a similar failing premise for him as there is or nominating another female: the Dems will be nominating another "no experience give him a chance he's better than what we've had" candidate like Obinkee was in 2008.

Been there. Done that.

With the world sitch looking a lot more desperate (financially, militarily with Putin and Crimea, etc etc), even with credible foreign policy gains made, the public won't "buy Beto."

he's a giggolo frat boy. he may get the nomination, but there may be power brokers who aren't buying the Holder-Obama Axis. Add in the possibility of indictments and investigations of Clinton and Obama circles--- Dem power brokers will want somebody in there with the stones to pardon their friends.

Beto is not an insider. the wagons are circling. no time to bring in a "breath of fresh air."

my two cents.

PS: Paul Ryan is still a failure as a constitutional conservative, and failed at his job which was to consolidate power in the form of a House coalition of interests to advance a broad agenda that candidates could run on. Meat Flap. i'll never tire of saying it.

The ZHouse did vote to eliminate Obamacare.

They sat on their dead asses until nearly the end of the session instead of voting immediately for the same bill they'd previously voted on when they knew the JEF would veto it. Instead they came up with a terrible replacement bill at the last minute with no wiggle room for when McCain acted like McCain.

It was poor leadership on the part of Ryan and his do nothing Congress.
