    The Latest: House OKs budget deal, ending shutdown

    • Lulu says:

      Everything seems to move at light speed with Trump running the show in DC. All the fucking around, blah-blah, and posturing is just like really FAST. No one wants to be tweeted about, kill shot or given a nickname. And the worthless bureaucrats are retiring/QUITTING because they don’t want to be shit-canned by Trump.

    I’m not sure if the Pastor should have announced this in public. The lefties are going to have one of their melt downs and get nasty toward Melania. .


    Pastor Begley: Melania Trump Demanded Spiritual Cleansing of White House, Removal of Pagan, Demonic Idols

    While commenting on President Donald Trump’s very public support for Christianity, as well as the frequent Bible studies and prayer gatherings held at the White House, evangelical Pastor Paul Begley said first lady Melania Trump demanded that the White House be spiritually cleansed and that pagan, demonic items and artificats from the Obama and Clinton years be removed.

      good thing she did!

      I bet they also swept it for bugs

    • Miranda says:

      Why would the Obamas and Clintos leave Haitian art or whatever in the White House in the first place? Wasn’t it their personal stuff?

    • DeniseVB says:

      No sources named ? It’s not unusual for a priest or minister to come over and bless a new home. In all the years I’ve been reading about the Clintons, never heard of Haitian voodoo rituals? That would make sense 😉 Just that Hillary was in a Bible Study group for many years, which makes no sense.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Shit is real. I’m thrilled to learn this aspect of Melania’s identity. Trump is in good hands people. Believe me.

      The Dems ALWAYS accuse others of exactly what they themselves are doing. PROJECTION. Dumbass Schiff was trying to get buck-nekkid pictures which is kind of weird and creepy.

      • Ann says:

        Oh no, please no… that must mean there are naked photos of Schiff out there. 🤮🤮🤮 Please, please say it ain’t so.

    Hillary’s Uranium One Reaching Critical Mass

    Team Hillary, which includes the corrupt and seditious hierarchy of the Obama DOJ and FBI, actually thought they could get away with everything. Hillary would win, Trump would be in the dock, and they would get away with everything from using the Clinton Foundation as a corrupt pay-for-play cash cow, to lying to the FISA court to conduct surveillance on American citizens, to real collusion with the Russians to transfer to them 20 percent of the raw material for nuclear weapons, our uranium supply.

    Well, I’m already tapering down on the Prednisone and don’t seem to have moonface. It also seems to have worked–my lower back feels much better, not 100%, but way better than before.

    Unfortunately, an upper back thing has now popped up (literally–this weird knot has POPPED out of the juncture between my neck and shoulder, I look like a turkey that’s ready to be taken out of the oven, it literally is visible to others) and I re-injure my ankle every time I stand up. Yesterday I reinjured it at the gym. Dog bites man, you say? Well, it was odd, since the workout in question was UPPER BODY. I was happy and excited and bounced through the weight room on my way out, landing “wrong” on that damn ankle. Again. X-ray and MRI of that to come.

    • votermom says:

      oh man!!!

      hugs, jadzia

      • Jadzia says:

        I am not going to let this be an excuse to stop working out. I gained 25 pounds from the pre-dissertation defense stress!!!!! Horrifying! Once I discovered the gravity of the situation (ha ha) and got on the wagon about a month ago, that weight has been melting right off no problem, and I’d like to keep it that way. It’s so easy to let “just a couple of days” turn into a permanent break.

        • mcnorman says:

          Pilates will help later with your core strengthening so that you don’t keep aggravating the discs. I’ve lived with three herniated discs for 20 years. The other is check out the Alexander Technique on YouTube. This helped my students immensely.

        • lateblum says:

          Good luck, J. Just take care not to aggravate the disc or anything else.
          (I used to become so energized by early results of weight loss that I’d overdo and sabotage my efforts.)

        • blowme0bama says:

          WOW! I didn’t know stress could cause weight gain! Weird.

          • Jadzia says:

            It can when you’re one of those people who eats when she’s stressed out.

          • votermom says:

            I do that, stress eat.

          • Somebody says:

            Oh come now stress can definitely cause weight gain. Most people either gain a ton or lose a ton when under stress.

            I tend to gain, exception being when my daughter was undergoing cancer treatment…..couldn’t eat, paced, paced, when given a chance chain smoked. I lost a lot of weight quickly…..don’t worry, I found it again and then some.🙄

    “On February 6, The New York Times published a chilling report on the arrest in Oklahoma of a foreign national who had attended an al Qaeda training camp. The defendant in this case is Naif Abdulaziz M. Alfallaj, a 34-year-old citizen of Saudi Arabia who has been residing in the U.S. since 2011. Allegedly he attended a terror training camp in Afghanistan in 2000 when four of the 9/11 hijacker/terrorists also attended training sessions at that very same camp.

    It is certainly impressive that our government was able to uncover the evidence upon which this criminal case is based, however, he was lawfully admitted into the United States in 2011, more than a decade after he received terror training.  He has been in the United States for about seven years and his presence in the United States only came to the attention of the FBI when he sought pilot training in October 2016.
    It was discovered that he had lied when he applied for his visa to enter the United States by concealing his connection to terrorism.
    This case causes me to have a sort of flashback to the congressional hearing at which I testified on March 19, 2002. The title of the hearing was the “INS’s Notification of Approval of Change of Status for Pilot Training for Terrorist Hijackers Mohammed Atta and Marwan Al-Shehhi.”

    local radio host had a goid point about Kelce’s speech – that he was basically railing against the fake news media pundits

    • DeniseVB says:

      Of the millions of fans celebrating in the streets, I noticed the media just covered the stupid ones. It’s just like there were twice as many marching for life than the idiot women’s marchers, guess which ones got the most coverage?

      Years ago, VB hosted a Greek Week from historically black colleges during spring break, riots broke out and it went national. Only the bad coverage of course. Weeks later we find out the instigators were local gangs and thugs. That never got a retraction even after making the sororities and fraternities look so bad. I really hate the media!

    Judicial Watch: Obama State Dept. Sent Classified Intel To Sen. Ben Cardin to Undermine Trump

    Government watchdog group Judicial Watch recently released 42 pages of heavily redacted State Department documents that they say the Obama Administration leaked to Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in an effort to undermine President Donald Trump just days before his inauguration.

    Well, I need to go out to move my car. But first, I have to dig out of my parking spot. We had MANY inches of snow overnight. It’s still snowing. I have to go out now before the snow is over the tops of my boots. It is ridiculously snowy here. The plows may not even get here before late afternoon, but the police will be here ticketing cars in just an hour. My little town doesn’t miss an opportunity to increase the treasury.

    • taw46 says:

      Stay warm and dry!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Be careful ! Hope you don’t have to go out in it later, sounds like a great day for sweats and blankies and a cozy book 😀

    • lateblum says:

      So crazy… I got in from cleaning off the car and then moving it, about an hour or so after I went out. I posted my thanks to everyone and then said a little about the snow – which, btw, was 6-8″ deep rather than the 14″ that had been predicted. And that it was mild out (in the 20’s) and still snowing. That was hours ago. I don’t see the comment anywhere.
      Since then the city tried to plow my street but with 2 cars still sitting there, you can hardly call it plowed. And NO police ticketing cars. Ha! It is still snowing and will likely be doing so the rest of the day. So we might get to 14 inches any way. It’s also getting colder. Glad I went out this morning.

      • elliesmom says:

        We had a snow storm a couple of days ago. Halfway through the afternoon it switched to rain. Then the sun went down and everything froze over. I watched from the window. I got up the next morning and decided I should go out and at least throw some salt on the driveway. I kept putting it off, and around noon the sunshine moved to the driveway. An hour or so later the ice melted, the water ran down the hill, and the driveway dried off. I keep telling Elliesdad “Patience is my best virtue.”

    Bronx public defenders walk off job after ‘Dreamer’ detained

    BRONX, New York City (WABC) — More than 100 public defenders — attorneys for people who can’t afford lawyers — walked out Thursday in protest of their clients getting detained by federal immigration officers.

    • DeniseVB says:

      If the parents became citizens didn’t someone step in at the time to figure it out for their son also? I think there’s more to this story too. Out of 100 public defenders, not one of them was aware of the law?

    • taw46 says:

      His parents became citizens, but he didn’t know he wasn’t one? But he knew he needed to apply for DACA under Obama, but couldn’t afford it? Then applies last fall, when Trump announced he would not extend it, so his application was denied. And it is our fault, we are so mean.

    Adam Schiff’s collusion with oligarch, Ukrainian arms dealer, exposed

    What drives Adam Schiff’s never ending Russia hysteria?

    When in doubt follow the money. Congressman Schiff’s well documented Putin obsession may have something to do with his billionaire, military complex, oligarch patron from Ukraine.

    The holiday resurged again after World War II, only to fade as the veterans died, retired or moved. By the 1980’s, fewer than 2,000 veterans were marching in the parades. Only in the last three years has participation grown again, as Vietnam veterans have become more active.

    Nonetheless, from the beginning, this year’s organizers have skated on thin financial ice, government approvals have been slow and lining up things like Sherman tanks and marching bands has been difficult. “There has been a constant awareness everything could fall apart at any time,” Mr. Fox said.

    Organizers received no contributions from the 200 corporations they asked, among them military contractors to whom they presented documentation of profits made on weapons used in World War II.

    “Zippo, dada, zilch,” Mr. Fox said. “Nothing from Northrup, United Technologies, none of them. To me, it’s a sin.”

    By mid-August, organizers had a bank account of exactly $1.21. A request to airlines to donate blankets for aging veterans was turned down because logos might not be visible on television. Then Donald Trump, a nonveteran, agreed to throw in $200,000 as well as raise money from his friends, in exchange for being named grand marshal.

    Since then, money has come in, though not enough to meet the original budget, which was reduced from $2.9 million to $2.4 million. Fireworks were just one of many cuts.

        I did! Thanks for asking. I have to go out is a few minutes to move it again as the plows will be doing the other side of the street tomorrow. I actually shoveled the snow from the entrance of my front door to the street. I cleared a path to the street with my trusty little shovel. Then the man who lives upstairs – who I am certain has never lifted a finger to do anything requiring any energy – parked his car right there so no one has easy access to the street. He isn’t mean spirited or selfish; he’s simply unaware. And I, frankly am annoyed. BBL
