Sources tell me rumors are circulating in Washington DC that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is involved in a heated menage a trois with Russian President Vladimir Putin and an anonymous transgender midget…sorry, little person. They were purportedly videotaped romping on a pee-pee sodden bed in one of Moscow’s fancier hotels.
If true, these sordid, and sodden, allegations could well lead to impeachment proceedings for Speaker Pelosi, my sources say. I have been tipped off that such news will be a huge bombshell if proven to be true. For the sake of America, one hopes this is all just hearsay. —Jim O’Neill “Fake News in a Nutshell”
The above quote is, of course, fake news. Welcome to “Trump World,” where the most ridiculous, unsubstantiated, nonsensical crapola is treated as holy writ by our duplicitous, dishonest media. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
The young men of Covington Catholic High School have been subjected to nothing short of a political inquisition because of their faith, the color of their skin and their devotion to making America great again. And they are owed an apology.
What CNN, The New York Times, the Washington Post and National Review (among others) did to these teenage boys is simply outrageous.—More…
Three men were killed and two others were injured after dozens of shots were fired by a homeowner in Texas during a home invasion early Sunday, officials said.
The incident happened around 1 a.m. in east Houston after five men wearing ski masks broke into the home, police told KPRC.—More…
For once—just once—in two years the progressive cabal is half right in blaming President Donald Trump for something:
“President Trump made Democrats “look like fools” last week when when he denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for an overseas trip after she suggested he delay the State of the Union address until the partial government is over, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews admitted on his show last week.” (Fox News, Jan. 21, 2019)
A spokesperson for the special counsel disputed BuzzFeed’s junk report, calling it “inaccurate.”—Cristina Laila “BuzzFeed got nuked by Mueller’s office after they floated a fake news…report”
As most of you know by now the media’s latest TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) hair-on-fire anti-Trump hysteria has turned out to be yet another nothing-burger. Surprise, surprise, yawn. Another “bombshell report” that turns out to be nothing but a firecracker, if that.
Looking for something to do with that left-over Christmas money? I have a couple of suggestions and in this and a couple of subsequent columns I’ll outline them. And while some are relatively high end, some (such as those mentioned in this column) are pretty darn inexpensive.
First up, something new and something not new but very worthwhile: The Scout charger and the Roku.
Toronto, January 21, 2019 – To kick off its 10th Red Tape Awareness Week™, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) presents its annual Paperweights which shines a light on the worst examples of red tape headaches for business owners across the country, ranging from the eye-rolling to the downright destructive.
“This year’s crop of ‘winners’ includes silly restrictions on who can use the word ‘cannabis,’ Toronto’s archaic business licencing process, and BC’s new mandatory union rules for public projects, which specify, among other things, that employees must be served on warm dinner plates,” said Jordi Morgan, CFIB’s vice-president for Atlantic Canada. “The Paperweights are clear examples of unnecessary and excessive red tape. While some of the examples may seem trivial or laughable, the cumulative burden of red tape is no joke.”
In what won’t surprise many, the foul-mouthed Democrat who called President Donald Trump a “motherf**ker” has no idea how the federal government works.
During an interview with MSNBC, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-MI, claimed that the Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C., is being staffed by park rangers despite national parks being closed as part of the partial government shutdown.—More…
Barron’s reports that the cost of the partial government shutdown has now exceeded the $5.7 billion President Trump requested for his wall. That is how stupid Democrats’ “resistance” has become.
Two years ago, Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States. Almost immediately thereafter, Democrats fastened on obstructing every single proposal from Mr. Trump as their party’s primary platform. Who could have imagined that two years in, hatred of the president would still be rolling across the country like a wrecking ball, undermining the integrity of the FBI and credibility of our courts, corroding our politics, and utterly destroying the fair-mindedness of the press?—More…
Nine migration-background men have been sentenced for a brutal and unprovoked series of violent assaults including “acid” attacks, described as “homophobic” by the media.

A student from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky who says he was present at the incident where MAGA hat-wearing students from his class allegedly harassed a Native American activist says that the media has spun the story wildly — and that it was actually the Native American man who harassed them.
The incident went viral after a video that appeared to show the students sneering at the tribal elder, Nathan Phillips, as he was drumming elicited a firestorm of social media opprobrium directed at the youngsters.—More….
People including employees of an asylum home in the German town of Guben are said to have been injured after a migrant went after employees armed with a hatchet.

El Paso Sector Border Patrol officials report that at least 2,500 migrants illegally crossed the border along a small section of the New Mexico Border. The migrants crossed the border this fiscal year as part of large groups of Central American families and unaccompanied minors near the Antelope Wells Port of Entry.
In an area that normally only sees a few hundred illegal border crossings per year, El Paso Sector officials reported that 25 large groups of migrants crossed the border near the Antelope Wells Port of Entry in the first few months of Fiscal Year 2019. The Border Patrol defines a “large group” as more than 100 people, FOX14 reported.—More…
El Paso Sector Border Patrol officials say smugglers are using large groups of family unit migrants and unaccompanied minors to distract agents so they can move drugs across the border in other locations.

We’d hardly just begun our Two Minutes Hate of the MAGA-hat wearing teens from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky when it turns out things weren’t at all as they had originally seemed.
For one, longer cell phone videos showed that the drum-banging Native American activist and tribal elder Nathan Phillips had actually originated contact with the teens in their Make America Great Again gear during the March for Life in Washington on Friday in a tense scene near the Lincoln Memorial.—More….
Pro-American immigration reformers say President Trump’s plan to offer a work permit amnesty to about a million illegal aliens and foreign nationals could encourage more caravans of Central Americans to come to the United States at the U.S-Mexico border.
In a weekend announcement, Trump offered Republicans and Democrats a plan to give amnesty in the form of three-year work permits to a little more than 700,000 illegal aliens who are enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.—More….
Everyone in the establishment media knew BuzzFeed’s report about President Trump suborning perjury from his then-personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was a lie. What they did not expect was special counsel Robert Mueller dropping a fact check on them.

Is calling a Mini big an oxymoron?
After all, among other things, the name Mini means – according to my Random House Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary –“of a small or reduced size in comparison with others of its kind.” Not only that, but the original Mini of classic car fame was a truly small car – a very small car. Heck, when I was in school, we used to marvel at how our music teacher (who seemed at the time to be about nine feet tall) managed to fold himself into his Mini.
The young man at the center of what has been described as a hostile confrontation with an Omaha tribal elder last week denounced what he called “outright lies” on Sunday, saying he was actually trying to remain calm to defuse the tense situation.
“I am the student in the video who was confronted by the Native American protestor,” the young man, Nick Sandmann, a junior at Covington Catholic High School in Covington, Kentucky, said in a statement his family issued through a public relations firm.—More…
President Donald J. Trump extended an olive branch to Democrats on the weekend, conceding much of their immigration policy agenda in a bold longshot bid to move forward with building a southern border wall and ending the nearly month-long partial government shutdown but left-wing lawmakers rejected his overture even before he addressed the nation on TV on Saturday.
Trump’s address came after a particularly frosty week in Washington.
“Is ‘Likability’ in Politics Sexist? Yes. It’s Also Outdated,” the New York Times blared. “The issue with Elizabeth Warren isn’t likability. It’s sexism,” The Guardian bleated. “Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton and the sexist hypocrisy of the ‘likability’ media narrative,” NBC wailed. “Talking About Elizabeth Warren’s Likability is a Way to Tell Women to Sit Down and Shut Up,” the Daily Beast ranted.
Lefties like to believe that the essential elements of human nature, economics, aspiration and biology are outdated, having been disproven by some professor in an obscure TED talk or Marxist tract. Likability was apparently discredited in a panel discussion, but we went on liking people and never realized it.
TORONTO—The Fraser Institute’s Report Card on Ontario’s Elementary Schools is out today.
This year’s Report Card—the go-to source for measuring academic performance—ranks more than 3,000 anglophone and francophone public and Catholic schools (and a small number of independent schools) based on nine academic indicators from results of annual provincewide reading, writing and math tests.
How many of these 10 points (Listed Below) have already been achieved?
Like any other organization, the United Nations developed a credo, a way of thinking and a desire to do what most organizations aspire to - get bigger and more powerful.
Porsche chose this year’s Montreal International Auto Show as the venue to present, for the first time in Canada, the new 2019 Macan, 2019 Cayenne Turbo, as well as the 2020 911 Carrera S and 911 Carrera 4S models which celebrated their world premiere in Los Angeles less than two months ago.
Call it climate one-upmanship. It seems everyone has to outdo previous climate chaos rhetoric.
The “climate crisis” is the “existential threat of our time,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her House colleagues. We must “end the inaction and denial of science that threaten the planet and the future.”
Former California Governor Jerry Brown solemnly intoned that America has “an enemy, though different, but perhaps very much devastating in a similar way” as the Nazis in World War II.
A fire Sunday morning in Northwest Washington, D.C., damaged studios for Fox News, C-SPAN and MSNBC, and forced “Fox News Sunday” to relocate its broadcast to a local affiliate’s studio.

Some folks are naturally accident-prone. I am. My boyhood best friend and mentor Jaybird said that I should write a collection of stories about my accidents. If I do, the first story will be about the time we discovered the honey hole.
In angling parlance, a honey hole is a place nobody else knows about, and we found one where a creek had overflowed its banks, flooding a cow pasture. Big bass were thrashing minnows in the shallows.
No creatures are deadlier at ambushing than these bucket-mouthed behemoths. Lurking in shadows, they attack anything that swims close by, and the pasture’s fence posts provided ideal cover.
Tensions between Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and President Donald Trump continue to rise. We’re going on a month-long government shutdown over Trump’s proposed border wall. We’ve seen a lot of back-and-forth between the two. But one thing Pelosi is not happy about? Trump grounding her Congressional Delegation’s overseas trip a few days ago. Here’s the thing though: she did it to herself when she sent a letter to Trump suggesting the State of the Union be postponed until the government shutdown ends.
Pelosi’s spokesman came out and said President Trump endangered the Congressional Delegation by revealing details of the trip in his letter.—More….
They’re getting by with a little help from their friends.
