Attn. Nancy Pelosi! CBS News finds families who WON’T be killed by the tax bill

**Written by Doug Powers You know it’s bad for the Dems when even the mainstream media can’t give an assist. Here’s a CBS News story that did NOT cooperate with the Democrat narrative of “Armageddon” and mass misery. Nancy Pelosi hardest hit: Breaking news: @CBSThisMorning asked three families for their tax returns and found that all three would receive tax cuts next year because of the #TaxCutsAndJobsAct. pic.twitter.com/xnGvTgV3bJ — Senate Republicans (@SenateGOP) December 22, 2017 Sorry, Nancy, Chuck & the entire Democrat leadership, but… (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); But if Dems are still looking for victims, super-rich Bette Midler might have to pay a little more in taxes.

Video awesomeness: Nikki Haley gives U.N. the wedgie of a lifetime

**Written by Doug Powers On Thursday, the United Nations finally found somebody they weren’t willing to appease: BREAKING: UN General Assembly votes 128-9 to declare US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital `null and void’ — The Associated Press (@AP) December 21, 2017 That was, of course, an empty gesture from the U.N. since the U.S. has veto power over U.N. empty gestures. All that led to Nikki Haley telling the U.N. to pound sand, and it was glorious: (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); This was WAY past overdue: “The United States will remember this day in which it was singled out for attack in the General Assembly,” Haley said in a speech before the vote. “We will remember it when we are called upon to, once again, make the world’s largest contribution to the United Nations.” “America … Read entire article »

Anybody surprised? Susan Rice slams Trump’s ‘America First’ approach

**Written by Doug Powers If Trump changed his slogan to “Iran First” Rice would probably be temporarily placated, but that’s not going to happen: Former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice blasted President Trump’s recent national security policy rollout in a new op-ed, arguing the U.S. will lose its moral authority abroad as well as make a mockery out of his “America first” approach. “Relinquishing the nation’s moral authority in these difficult times will only embolden rivals and weaken ourselves. It will make a mockery of the very idea of America first,” Rice wrote in The New York Times on Wednesday. “The United States’s strength has long rested not only on our unmatched military and economy, but also on the power of our ideals,” wrote Rice, also a former United States ambassador to the … Read entire article »

Awkward: NBC/MSNBC journos getting bonuses because of GOP tax plan

**Written by Doug Powers I can’t wait to see how the lib media manage to spin this story as evidence of more cruelty, death, destruction and “Armageddon” the GOP tax plan hath wrought: JUST IN: Comcast to give $1,000 bonuses to more than 100K “eligible frontline and non-executive employees” & invest $50 billion over the next five years in infrastructure “based on the passage of tax reform”. https://t.co/YKho1O67Ek (Disclosure: Comcast is parent co. of CNBC) — CNBC (@CNBC) December 20, 2017 Journalists at NBC/MSNBC are among the Comcast employees getting $1,000 bonuses “based on the passage of tax reform and the FCC’s action on broadband.” (https://t.co/PXYkLqMrgH) https://t.co/JXgYK4W0GT — Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) December 21, 2017 Maybe some MSNBC reporters will donate their bonuses to the DNC in an effort to cleanse themselves of the irony.

GOP tax bill causes Nancy Pelosi to lose remaining fragment of her mind

**Written by Doug Powers The GOP tax bill is now very close to passage, and as that became clear last night, Nancy Pelosi put on her spelunking gear for another deep descent into insanity and self-unawareness: A vote to pass the #GOPTaxScam is a vote to install a permanent plutocracy in America. — Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) December 19, 2017 A warning about plutocracy from a super-wealthy member of Congress who’s been in power for decades? Pelosi might be trying to convince people the tax bill will cost them their lives, but it clearly has yet to even take away her unintentional sense of humor. There are few things more disturbing than hearing the swell of cheers from the @HouseGOP as they raise taxes on 86 million middle class families. #GOPTaxScam — Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) December 19, … Read entire article »

Harry Reid found an out-of-this-world way to secretly reward a donor

Harry Reid found an out-of-this-world way to secretly reward a donor

**Written by Doug Powers Here’s a little story you might have read about this week: In the $600 billion annual Defense Department budgets, the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find. Which was how the Pentagon wanted it. Scratch beneath the surface, though, and that’s also how Harry Reid wanted it: The shadowy program — parts of it remain classified — began in 2007, and initially it was largely funded at the … Read entire article »

Pyongyang on the Prairie, Part Two

Pyongyang on the Prairie, Part Two by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2017 In Oklahoma City, words don’t mean what they plainly mean. Asking government officials simple questions prompts Orwellian acrobatics. By distorting language and obfuscating actions, public bureaucrats subvert transparency and evade accountability. Whether in the fictional dictatorship of Oceania, or the true-life fascistic regime of North Korea, or the petty tyranny of Oklahoma, linguistic deceit is an instrument of a State with something to hide. Last week, I reported … Read entire article »

Senate Dems decide they don’t want to quit Franken, and vice-versa

**Written by Doug Powers You knew something like this was in the works when Al Franken took the “delayed resignation” angle. Pump the brakes! At least four senators are urging Al Franken to reconsider resigning, including two who issued statements calling for the resignation two weeks ago and said they now feel remorse over what they feel was a rush to judgment. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who urged Franken not to step down to begin with — at least not before he went through an Ethics Committee investigation — said the Minnesota senator was railroaded by fellow Democrats. “What they did to Al was atrocious, the Democrats,” said West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin in an interview for POLITICO’s Off Message podcast to post on Tuesday. Sen. Pat Leahy is among Dems who agree with … Read entire article »

Irony gold: ‘DREAMer’ activists arrested for unlawful entry… to Chuck Schumer’s office

**Written by Doug Powers This is definitely a late entry as a finalist for the most ironic story of the year: USCP arrest four protesters in Schumer’s Capitol Hill office after hours. Were busted around 8 pm et. Charged w/unlawful entry. Were protesting immigration policy and demanding action on the DREAM Act. — Chad Pergram (@ChadPergram) December 16, 2017 Come on, Chuck, why won’t you insist that your workspace serves as a “sanctuary office” for your like-minded brethren? Seven so-called “Dreamers” as well as one of their allies were arrested during a sit-in Friday at the Washington, D.C., offices of Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York and Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Florida, according to a media representative from an advocacy organization. And now they’re going on a hunger strike and facing … Read entire article »

U.N. readies strongly worded, toothless resolution after Trump acknowledges reality

**Written by Doug Powers The United Nations frequently criticizes what they call “climate denial” but they’re perfectly comfortable with reality denial, as evidenced by the triggering after President Trump said that the city where Israel’s capital is located actually is the capital city of Israel. Trump’s decision really got some U.N. bureaucrats’ Boutros Boutros-Ghali signature line of undies in a wad: The United Nations (U.N.) Security Council is weighing a draft resolution that would essentially seek to nullify any move to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The resolution, drafted by Egypt and circulated among the Security Council’s 15 members, does not directly mention the United States or President Trump, who moved last week to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city, according to Reuters, which viewed a copy of the text.

SNL cast member proves Trump wrong to call show biased by getting a Hillary tattoo

**Written by Doug Powers It’s impressive the way so many comedic performers in the last few years have been so willing to speak truth to power in either party. Wait, never mind: Hillary Clinton has made quite an impression on “Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson — on his right leg, to be exact. Davidson, who publicly supported Clinton during the 2016 presidential election, posted a photo Friday on Instagram of his new tattoo, which is of Clinton. “Wanted to get @hillaryclinton a Christmas gift so I got a tattoo of my hero,” the New York City native wrote. “Thanks for being such a badass and one of the strongest people in the universe.” I think Peter Strzok also has one of these: SNL cast member shows off Hillary Clinton tattoo https://t.co/IjNghJtdKm pic.twitter.com/IMkni85Vip — The … Read entire article »

770 fewer people driving cars to work at EPA spells good news for the environment!

**Written by Doug Powers There’s good news on the fossil fuel emissions front this year: The election of Donald Trump as president has sparked an exodus from the EPA. Fewer cars being driven every day is good for the environment, and yet progressives are panicking about it: Over 700 employees at the Environmental Protection Agency have quit or taken early retirement during the Trump administration so far, bringing the agency close to employment levels not seen since Reagan. ThinkProgress, whose senior editor is scared of his plumber who he fears may have voted for Trump, is warning that the exodus will lead to “dirtier air” and “dirtier water.” “Since Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt took over the top job at the agency in March, more than 700 employees have either retired, taken voluntary … Read entire article »

Shocker: Comey statement on FBI’s Hillary probe was heavily edited (guess who helped)

**Written by Doug Powers The real eye-roller about the James Comey statement about Hillary Clinton in late October of last year wasn’t that it was edited, but rather who did the editing. But I’ll get to that in a minute. First off, in general, it’s been discovered that the then-FBI director’s original statement later got more watered down than a mixed drink at a chain restaurant: Newly released documents reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement … Read entire article »

Still dawdling over deadly diversity visas

Still dawdling over deadly diversity visas by Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate Copyright 2017 Capitol Hill’s national security priorities are screwier than a Six Flags roller coaster. Instead of immediately shutting down one of America’s stupidest visa programs, which helped bring us yet another murder-minded jihadist this week, bipartisan Beltway politicians are pushing to preserve and expand the illegal immigration pipeline. Republicans and Democrats in Congress want a “fix” for the Obama administration’s executive amnesty covering nearly 700,000 illegal immigrants — and they want it pronto. Translation: Protecting border-hopping “DREAMers” is a more important priority in Washington than protecting Americans from infiltrators exploiting the diversity visa lottery. You remember the hew and cry over the diversity visa lottery, right? It was just seven short weeks ago when America discovered that New York City truck jihadist Sayfullo Saipov, who … Read entire article »

The Schiff’s hitting the fan

**Written by Doug Powers It’s been 13 months since the presidential election, and Hillary Clinton’s offer of $20 for each time any Democrat implies that the reason she lost is Russia must still be on the table. Rep. Adam Schiff continues to demonstrate that “Trump colluded with Russia to win the election” is a narrative in desperate search of real-world evidence to back it up, and he’s not stopping until somehow willing it into existence: CNN host Jake Tapper ran through the thread of stories in the Russian collusion narrative while interviewing Schiff on “State of the Union.” “We haven’t seen the actual connection,” Tapper said. “We haven’t seen an actual proof of cooperation and collusion, so what am I missing here?” Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Tapper … Read entire article »

AYFKM? Family of NYC terrorist ‘outraged’ (by police response)

**Written by Doug Powers The man arrested for attempting a suicide bombing in Manhattan, Akayed Ullah, didn’t succeed in his murderous goal and instead injured himself and a few other people.
