Impeachment? That is really a great idea! And here are some really good reasons to impeach POTUS: Fast and Furious: Illegally armed Mexican drug cartels and ISIS militants, illegally targeted conservative groups via IRS, secretly obtained phone records from Associated Press journalists, lied about letting people keep their health insurance, gave tax dollars to campaign contributors and lobbyists, falsely claimed the money was for “green energy” (Solyndra), Benghazi…and… Oh wait, wrong POTUS! Never mind… Via Washington Examiner. The seven candidates for chair of the Democratic National Committee laid out their plans to lead the political party, including impeaching President Trump – a rallying cry even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said is not yet warranted. One of the top...

Wait, aren’t Trump supporters supposed to be the “foreigner-hating xenophobes” ? Via Free Beacon. Talk show host Chelsea Handler said Saturday that she will not consider having First Lady Melania Trump on her show because “she can barely speak English.” Handler spoke with Variety‘s Elizabeth Wagmeister after leading a Women’s March during the Sundance Film Festival, Mediate reported. Handler has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, telling other media outlets that she would not have him on her show. But then Wagmeister asked if Handler would have the first lady on the show instead of her husband. “Melania?” Handler asked. “To talk about what? She can barely speak English.”….

Good news. These black-clad ‘anarchists’ have watched a United States for the past 8 years where the rule of law is not enforced and where rioting is passively permitted. Those days are over. The arrests and charges, btw, very well could have been a factor in the lack of anarchist violence at the women’s marches. These violent parasites stand for nothing, and appear to disrupt and destroy. Let’s keep an eye on this so there is genuine follow through and actual serious punishment. Via CBS and AP. Most of the approximately 230 protesters arrested on Inauguration Day will be charged with felony rioting, federal prosecutors said. The U.S. Attorney’s Office said the offense is punishable by up to 10 years...

Maybe Maxine Waters could just wait until President-Elect Trump is sworn in on Friday before she starts impeachment proceedings? And, mentioning your opponent’s health is an impeachable offense? Who knew? Via Daily Caller. Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters had difficulty explaining why she thinks Donald Trump’s campaign attacks against Hillary Clinton are impeachable offenses while being interviewed by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Monday night…. “Well here’s what I’m trying to get to,” Waters responded. “If we discover that Donald Trump or his advocates played a role to help provide strategy — if they’re the ones who came up with ‘Crooked Hillary,’ if they’re the ones who came up with, ‘she’s ill, something’s wrong with her energy,’ and the way that he...

What a *fab* way to make your point: Stand up, make nauseating coughing noises and interrupt everyone’s Sunday brunch. Via American Mirror. ….Video shows the liberal activists, called “Rise & Resist,” coughing repeatedly inside the Jean Georges restaurant at Trump International Hotel and Tower, and standing up and unfurling signs reading, “We Need Obamacare” and “Trumpcare Makes Us Sick.”…. While it was an overwhelmingly geriatric crowd, a child held a sign reading, “Cats and kids against capitalism.”….

Yes, Hollywood buttercups, you will all survive. And the country will thrive. But please, keep putting out these idiotic videos that turn off Americans by the droves. You will ensure that Dems will lose again in 2018. Via Washington Examiner. Hollywood celebrities have come together to produce yet another anti-Trump video. This is the third PSA of its kind since Nov. 8, when Hillary Clinton managed somehow to lose the election, meaning we’re averaging one new star-studded anti-Trump message every 20 days. Lucky us. The latest from Hollywood’s politically involved features a gaggle of celebrities, including Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Amy Adams and Chris Pine, singing Gloria Gaynor’s 1979 hit, “I Will Survive.” The PSA is, of course, set against...

Gee, now why would they want to keep evidence of “The Russians!” away from the FBI? Weird. Someone inside the DNC also accused some in the FBI of being “haters.” Not. Kidding. Via Buzzfeed. The FBI struck back at the Democratic National Committee on Thursday, accusing it of denying federal investigators access to its computer systems and hamstringing its investigation into the infiltration of DNC servers by Russia-backed hackers. “The FBI repeatedly stressed to DNC officials the necessity of obtaining direct access to servers and data, only to be rebuffed until well after the initial compromise had been mitigated. This left the FBI no choice but to rely upon a third party for information,” a senior law enforcement official told...

Yes… really. Because you just can’t make this stuff up. Via Breitbart. On Wednesday, President Obama added another prestigious medal to his Nobel Prize collection when he had Defense Secretary Ash Carter award him with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service…. Carter insisted that the medal was a token of appreciation for Obama’s service as commander in chief, the Associated Press reported. After spending the last few weeks throwing roadblocks in the path of President-elect Donald Trump and his transition team, Obama nonetheless claimed in his remarks to the members of the military in attendance that “We’ve got to make sure that during this transition period that there is a seamless passing of the baton, that there’s...

I do hope this guy was given a dictionary for the holidays. Maybe he could look up the word m-e-t-a-p-h-o-r. Via Breitbart. Calling recent political discourse in the U.S. “lacking in civility,” a Washington bureaucrat is insisting that we stop using the phrase “drain the swamp” to describe change in Washington because, apparently, it is an insult to real swamps everywhere. Adam Rosenblatt, a science and technology policy fellow at the American Association for the Advancement of Science based at the Department of Energy in Washington, D.C., recently noted in a Washington Post op-ed that using the term “drain the swamp” is a “terrible analogy.” Rosenblatt, an ecologist by training, has decided to take the term literally, instead of metaphorically...

Let’s see: The members of the 2017 Human Rights Council (Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, China, Cuba, Iraq, Qatar, Burundi, Bangladesh, United Arab Emirates) engage in amputating arms of suspected thieves, treating women as “property,” throwing gays off rooftops, beheadings, torture, “disappearances” and execution of political opponents. But Israel is constructing apartments on land that had been in Jewish hands two thousand years ago. Oh, the “horror”… HT Twitchy. Happy New Year 2017!

If you decorated your home with lights, or used wrapping paper for your gifts, the Climate Change Science-Deniers, er, environmentalists, want you to know that you are ruining the planet! Or, something. Via Daily Caller. Environmentalists are really worried that your home’s Christmas lights will ruin the planet. They worry that both the manufacturing processes of the lights and the electricity needed to power them will generate lots of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. They worry that the lights are manufactured in China and thus the amount of CO2 emissions generated during their construction is effectively unknowable…. “Holiday lights result in tons of wasted energy each year,” the environmentalist website GreenerIdeal.com opined earlier this month.“Producing all this energy means more carbon...

Memo to Olivia Wilde: You look “just like Melania”…only in your dreams. Via Daily Mail.

$30,000 of our tax dollars for actors to run around a field with some sheep and a dog. The NYT says “Ann Carlson is a conceptual artist who uses gesture, text, and humor to break your heart.” Well, it is heartbreaking, when you think what $30K could have done to help our veterans. Via Free Beacon. “Doggie Hamlet is a full-length outdoor performance spectacle that weaves dance, music, visual and theatrical elements with aspects from competitive sheep herding trials,” writes Elsie Management, a firm that promotes the performing arts. “The work is performed by four dancers, one boy, one American Sign Language interpreter, two herding dogs and a flock of sheep in a 30 x 50 foot fenced field.” “Doggie...

Sad how the “Paper of Record” has become the “Paper to Line Your Bird-Cage.” Via BizPac Review. In what can only be described as the perfect case of irony, The New York Times aired a fake news ad in a story decrying fake news and the death of facts. The piece is an editorial called “Truth and Lies in the Age of Trump” published Saturday. NYTimes’ editorial board discussed the decay of facts in a Walter Cronkite-less era dominated by truth-spinners like President-elect Donald Trump. Smack dab in the middle of this piece lamenting the end of reliable news was a fake news story claiming Alec Baldwin was dead at 58. Gizmodo Media Group executive editor John Cook took a...
