Shut Up And Make Me A Taco “Moonbeam”

Hundreds of buildings have been destroyed and vast areas of land have been badly scorched in recent weeks in the state of California.  Last week’s wildfire was driven by Santa Ana winds, low humidity and parched ground.
Nearly 200,000 residents were evacuated from their homes, with many forced to flee in the middle of the night as the flames rapidly spread.
Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown said vast fires, such as the ones that have ravaged southern California in recent days, "could happen every year or every few years. We're facing a new reality in this state, where fires threaten people's lives, their properties, their neighborhoods, and of course billions and billions of dollars.  With climate change, some scientists are saying southern California is literally burning up."
“The Governor has sought to contrast California’s approach to tackling the climate challenge with federal rollbacks led by the Trump administration, saying that while the White House declares war on climate science and retreats from the Paris Agreement, California is doing the opposite and taking action,’” the Sacramento Bee reported.
Following the president’s announcement that the U.S. was leaving the Paris Climate Accord, Moonbeam said, “It is against the facts. It is against science. It is against reality itself. We know we have to decarbonize our future. If we don’t, it is a horror. People will die. Habitat will be destroyed. Seas will rise. Insects will spread in areas they never have before. This is not a game. It is not politics to talk to your base. It is humanity and whether it makes it through the 21st century. California will stay the course." 
In an interview with 60 Minutes, the Marxist idiot told Bill Whitaker the president was wrong to withdraw. "That's a preposterous idea, not even a shred of truth in that statement," Brown said. "I don't think President Trump has a fear of the Lord, the fear of the wrath of God, which leads one to more humility...and this is such a reckless disregard for the truth and for the existential consequences that can be unleashed."
Well, the truth is, Brown is at war with Donald Trump.  California has always had wildfires and droughts, earthquakes and mudslides.  Just check the website for CalFire.  They’ve maintained records dating back to 1943.
The Accord was signed in April 2016.  You can’t blame Trump.  He’s only been in office for eleven months.  The last time I checked he can’t make it rain.

2017 Army-Navy Game: Not A Single Bended Knee

The 2017 college football season came to a close today at Lincoln Financial Field in Philly with the 118th edition of the Army-Navy game.
Before the game aired, CBS Sports produced one of the classiest and emotionally stirring videos celebrating those who have committed their lives to protecting our country.
Rivalries stir the soul and today’s game was no exception.  On a snowy field, the Black Knights of the Hudson took on the Midshipmen of the Naval Academy to win 14-13.  Before the game, in a solemn and majestic moment, the choirs of the Annapolis and West Point academies sang the national anthem.
Dad would have been proud of his Army and his country today. 

Dear CNN, Your Bananas Are Showing

In October CNN released an ad intended to battle claims the cable news outfit was fake news and to stem the tide of “CNN Is Fake News” memes.
The ad copy should read:
“This is a banana.  CNN might try to tell you that it’s an apple.  They might scream apple, apple, apple over and over and over again.  They might put APPLE in all caps.  You might even start to believe that this is an apple.  But it’s not.  This is a banana.”
Yesterday, CNN advanced a story claiming to show collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia; a talking point they have hung onto for dear life since last year.
Reporters Manu Raj and Jeremy Herb insinuated that Donald Trump, Jr. was given advanced notice on September 4, 2016 about hacked documents before they were made public by WikiLeaks.  Raj and Herb claimed to have spoken to two sources who “confirmed the date”.
In a nutshell, one of the sources was a mysterious “Mike Eckerson” who no one has been able to identify or confirm as a real person.  CBS followed up on the story and made the very same claim.  The problem for CNN is the emails at the heart of this fake news story were discussed in the House Intelligence Committee two days earlier.  The Washington Post, of all places, called out the piece as completely false.  The folks at the Post had actually seen the email for themselves and verified it was, in fact, sent on September 14.  The files were already in the public domain and being widely discussed online.
The story turned out to be completely meaningless.

Yuletide Respite: Something Wonderful

Fake Chews And The Armchair Neurologist

Unless I’ve missed my guess, MSNBC will do anything for laughs.  Remember Ricky Madcow’s epic buildup of President Trump’s two-page 2005 tax returns?  The cable "news" company also has two smear merchants on “The Morning Joe” show who daily insist President Trump is senile or mentally unstable.  Enter Lawrence O’Donnell the host of The Last Word.
I never watch anything on MSNBC.  I learn of the über-liberal parade of self-beclowning stooges through Twitter timelines and today was such a day.
O’Donnell, you may recall, had an epic profanity-laced meltdown of more than eight minutes three months ago.  The video, according to Page Six, was leaked by Andy Lack (the same guy who fired Matt Lauer) because O’Donnell had angered him in May by tweeting to fans about his contract negotiations.    
He was forced to apologize on Twitter saying, “A better anchorman and a better person would’ve had a better reaction to technical difficulties.”
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump said the United States recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital and would move its embassy there, upending decades of a diplomatic consensus over the status of the city pioneered by his predecessors.  He kept a promise he made on the campaign trail─the very same promise made and broken by Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
The last few seconds of his speech drew out the conspiracy theorists.  Were his dentures giving him trouble?  Did he have a mini-stroke?  The White House insisted it was nothing more than dry-mouth.
The following day O’Donnell tweeted:
Trump’s speech was important for diplomacy in the region.  Israel captured that land from Jordan during the 1967 Middle East war and annexed it; a move that has not been recognized internationally.  In 1980, the Israelis passed a law declaring Jerusalem the “complete and united” capital of their country.  Trump’s actions corrected a historic injustice.
The historic injustice to which I refer is the egregious maligning by the United Nations of the state of Israel.  During a tense emergency meeting of the UN Security Council today, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley defended the president’s actions saying three presidents delayed the decision in the hope that a peace process would produce results─results that never came.  Haley reprimanded the UN for its negative role in the peace process saying the world body has been “one of the world’s foremost centers of hostility toward Israel.  We will not be a party to that.  The United States no longer stands by when Israel is attacked in the United Nations.
I said all that to say this:  The President’s speech was a bit mumbled at the end of his announcement, but nowhere near Nancy Pelosi Palsi territory and I’m so tired of the pundit class pretending to be concerned about the health of a president they clearly despise.

Sneak Attacking Senator Resigns On Pearl Harbor Day

Senator Al Franken, leader of Minnesota’s Lizard People announced his resignation just after 11:45 AM today after 39 of his Democrat Senate colleagues called for him to step down following a string of sexual misconduct allegations against him.
“I know in my heart that nothing I’ve done as a senator─nothing─has brought dishonor on this institution,” Franken said. “Nevertheless, today I am announcing that in the coming weeks, I will be resigning as a member of the United States Senate.”

And The Most Creative Molestation Excuse Award Goes To…

A 4:53 PM Minnesota Public Radio tweeted Senator Al Franken would be announcing his resignation on Thursday, December 7.
Then, at 5:15 PM the senator’s office tweeted:
According to a published report by the New York Daily News, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer met privately with Franken and his wife shortly after a new allegation of sexual assault came to light, according to a person familiar with the meeting. Schumer urged Franken to step down.
The waffling is either due to Franken giving the Lizard People of Minnesota 24 hours to adjust to their loss or he’s waiting on a presentation of the 2017 Most Creative Molestation Excuse Award. 

Keep Us Abreast Of The Situation Al

The senator the Lizard People of Minnesota helped to elect in 2008 is set to make an announcement on Thursday after 38 senators called for him to resign.  Added to the chorus was Democrat National Committee Chairman Tom Perez.
The push to oust Franken came after another anonymous woman said Franken tried to forcibly kiss her in 2006 after the taping of his radio show.  His accuser claims he said, “It’s my right as an entertainer.”
“This allegation is categorically not true and the idea that I would claim this as my right as an entertainer is preposterous,” Franken said in a statement Wednesday. 
And then…

Freelance journalist for The Atlantic and former communications director for Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL), Tina Dupuy, joined the seven other accusers saying, “I wasn’t going to come forward. Then I was. Then I wasn’t. I’ve been hoping Franken would just step down and I wouldn’t have to say anything. I’ve been hoping he’s a decent enough man not to force his victims to parade in front of the Ethics Committee. I’ve been hoping I’d not ever have the moniker of ‘Franken accuser’”.

Thank Goodness You’re Home. The Christmas Tree Fainted.

Most folks give a classic, simple nod to Christmas's origins with a Christmas Angel as a tree topper to represent their role in celebrating the birth of Jesus.
Christmas angels occupy the top of Christmas trees to represent their role in celebrating the birth of Jesus.  It was, after all, the archangel Gabriel who spoke to Mary in Nazareth saying, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most Highest. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.”
A heavenly host of angels appeared in the sky over Bethlehem to celebrate Jesus' birth and that is the clearest reason why angels are placed at the top of a Christmas tree.
With the secularization of Christmastime, some may choose a big red bow, a snowman or an illuminate finial.  There are others to be sure, but some feminists in Great Britain have come up with a sterling idea for The Resistance.
Women To Look Up To has created a “range of modern female role models to further female equality.”  For 2017, WTLUT has three toppers donning angelic wings and are sold online for between $108 to $945 depending on tree size.  One of them is Hillary Clinton.  All the pussy-hat-wearing feminists can get Hillary on the cheap.  The price tag is only $140.
