❄ Open Thread December 26th ❄


Open thread and some articles about what is going on in the world.

Today I expect much of the country will be making a mad dash to return many of the presents they received yesterday. Unless something is the wrong size this seems tacky to me. But that’s just me. So much of the “reason for the season” has been lost what’s one more thing.

Moving on…

The whining and complaining continue. Trump continues to be Trump, to no one’s surprise that had a brain.

The left keeps throwing temper tantrums to show those silly fools that voted for Trump that they won’t take no for an answer. Which makes those that voted for Trump, and many that did not,  get to gleefully watch a major political party self-destruct.

With a small break for Christmas – the insanity resumes.

President Obama vowed to take action against Russia for hacking into DNC computers during the election to embarrass Hillary. The released e-mails revealed how the Democrats screwed Bernie Sanders out of the nomination. So Russia tried to rig our election by exposing how we rig our election.

  ‘Elle Magazine’ Highly Upset That Ivanka Is Sexy, Smart And Successful


  Good lord, this woman, who is masquerading as a writer, is nuts.

After  the left telling women for a generation that they can have it all, which most cannot, they are angry that this woman seems to have achieved what they champion. Problem is, she isn’t the “right” woman, because she’s exceptional.

It must be difficult to be a modern “feminist”. The rules change on a daily basis, according to who you are not what you are and most of the rules are stupid or silly. Just like the “feminists”.

    YES: Trump BLASTS Obama’s Anti-Israel Resolution: Change Is Coming To The UN 

By Ben Shapiro

Late on Friday, the Obama administration demonstrated before the world just how morally perverse they are, and why so many Americans can’t wait for their benighted perspective on foreign policy to become a relic of the past.

With Obama’s silent urging and acquiescence, the United Nations passed a resolution essentially declaring the holiest spot in Judaism, the Temple Mount, sovereign Muslim territory, and determining that all Jews living outside of pre-1967 lines are illegal residents on sovereign Muslim territory.

Obama did this on behalf of a unity government comprised of three terrorist groups – Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Palestinian Authority – and to the cheers of terror-sponsors like Iran.

President-elect Donald Trump attempted stop the Obama UN atrocity before it began by publicly urging a veto, then working behind the scenes to scuttle Egypt’s sponsorship of the draft resolution. Obama then worked with the Palestinians to push it through with help from socialist dictatorship Venezuela and Senegal, which is currently threatening to invade Gambia.


Ben Shapiro rates Trump as “good Trump” and “bad Trump”. This is, IMHO, very good Trump.

   ‘HEAL THYSELF’: Jake Tapper has choice words for lefty outlets bemoaning ‘fake news’ 

Jake Tapper  @jaketapper

It baffles me how anyone on the left combatting “fake news” can turn a blind eye to the click baiting within its own ranks. HEAL THYSELF

 Sea-level rise has slowed, polar bear numbers have increased, Antarctica is gaining ice, and crop production continues to set records year over year. Each of these points contradicts predictions made in climate models produced by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

   Why bashing the MSM is a win-win for Trump 

Frankly, I can’t think of a more deserving recipient of a take-no-prisoners scolding than the national media. Admittedly, I am biased, based on my own first-hand experience with the Washington press corps. Here is my story: In the late 1980s, while visiting our nation’s capital, I dropped in unannounced in the offices of a newspaper that had published some of my articles. They generously offered me press credentials so that I could attend a press conference featuring leaders of the “contras” (the Reagan-supported anti-communist resistance movement in Nicaragua) later that afternoon. It sounded interesting, so I accepted.

I arrived early, and approximately two-dozen journalists were already there. They were figuratively sharpening their knives, plotting openly about how they were going to trash the contras. Their spin was all worked out before even hearing what the contras had to say.

The overwhelmingly obnoxious impression I had of the Washington press corps was that they were were haughty, smug, snide, vicious, and arrogant. Maybe they are pleasant neighbors in their personal lives, but assembled together, they were a pack of hyenas, a gang of ideological thugs. It was ugly.

Fast forward to 2016. The mainstream media took delight in carving up Trump. As Politico.com noted in October, “A whopping 91 percent of news coverage about Donald Trump on the three broadcast nightly newscasts over the past 12 weeks has been ‘hostile.’”

    Artists Are Asking Ivanka Trump To Take Down Their Artwork From Her Home 

Ivanka has the right to display whatever art she’d like to in her private home. The artists, of course, have the right not to sell her pieces of their artwork. It’s petty to the extreme, however, to complain about someone displaying artwork that they purchased. Trump was elected president. This is a hard reality for some people to grasp, but it is reality.


  The pettiness exhibited by some of these clowns is absolutely stunning. I’m not an Ivanka fan but this kind of crap tends to make me like her better just because they, that being the liberal artists, are such numskulls.

  North Carolina Republicans just dealt the transgender lobby a HUGE blow 

In some respects, conservatives should be thankful that the Left is so extreme and intransigent in pursuit of their cultural Marxism and de-civilization agenda. In North Carolina, they pursued a strategy of seeking unconditional surrender from Republicans on HB2. In most cases, Republicans are willing to unconditionally surrender to liberal culture warriors, but thankfully there was enough fight left in North Carolina Republicans to hold the line when it mattered.

Despite the hype about Republicans agreeing to repeal HB2, the effort fell devastatingly flat for the transgender lobby. The North Carolina Senate voted 32-16 against repealing the bill. Ironically, every Democrat wound up opposing repeal and the Republicans were split down the middle.

HB2 kept the state’s recognition of a man being a man intact and prevented liberal cities such as Charlotte from imposing their harmful agenda on the public.

This bill brought to the floor in a special session would have repealed the law, but still retained a six-month moratorium as a “cooling off” period on localities enacting transgender legislation. A pretty good deal for Democrats given the fact that Republicans have a 2-1 majority in the legislature, right?

33 shot, 9 fatally, in Christmas weekend shootings

Christmas weekend in Chicago has already become more violent than it was during the entire Christmas weekend last year.

Nine men were killed and at least 24 other people have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday evening, according to Chicago Police.

Last year, a total of 30 people were shot in Chicago over the holiday weekend, leaving six dead.


The surprise for me isn’t that so many people were shot in Chicago, a city with some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, no, for me the surprise was that ABC reported it.

And you know I couldn’t leave without at least one more cartoon even if it is a sad one.

    Netanyahu INCINERATES Obama for betraying Israel on U.N. vote

    “Over decades, American administrations and Israeli governments had disagreed about settlements, but we agreed that the Security Council was not the place to resolve this issue. We knew that going there would make negotiations harder and drive peace further away.

    And, as I told John Kerry on Thursday, friends don’t take friends to the Security Council. I’m encouraged by the statements of our friends in the United States, Republicans and Democrats alike. They understand how reckless and destructive this UN resolution was, they understand that the Western Wall isn’t occupied territory.

    I look forward to working with those friends and with the new administration when it takes office next month. And I take this opportunity to wish Israel’s Christian citizens and our Christian friends around the world a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

      The betrayal of Israel by Obama – on the eve of Hanukkah, no less – is an affront on a host of levels. I am so disgusted with the despicable behavior of Obama when it comes to Israel. He treats our enemies with far greater care and affection than he does our allies. Your great cartoon highlights that point well.

      When I saw the headline today abt the shootings in a Midwest city, I knew it had to be Chicago. Yep. Sure enough. The violence there continues to rage with the Democrats being astonishingly silent abt it. Amazing how these long-time Democrat controlled strongholds continue to deteriorate on a massive level without them making the connect. At least out loud, that is…Sigh.

      Thank you for the roundup today, Marge. It is much appreciated!

    Israel Recalling U.S. Ambassador

    Israel also summoned its ambassadors to other Security Council member countries – including France, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and others.


    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      I don’t blame Israel one bit. I would too, in Israel’s position.

      Honestly, I am so frustrated that our very good Governor, Nikki Haley, is now going to be the UN Ambassador. How abt the US just not have one anymore and stop spending a gazillion dollars on this anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, pro-terrorist (Palestine) body??

      Leave Haley here, or find her a position worthy of her abilities.

      That said, I have no idea she would be a forceful presence in the UN. Come to think of it, maybe she is EXACTLY who we need there…

      That sums it up, doesn’t it? And apparently they have forgotten what their Dear Leader, Obama, said after HE won: “‘Elections have consequences.” It’s the political way for winners to tell losers: “Tough luck, you lost. Get over it.”’

      I still deplore Trump. I resent the Dems and media (I know, redundant) who made him the nominee. But he is the certified President-Elect now, so shut up already. You did this, and we all have to live with it. Grow the hell up already.

      Biden has learned to play ball with the anti-Semitic Obama Administration just like Kerry and so many others.

      I have long thought he was a buffoon and a liberal idiot but I never thought he was that kind of scum. Now I do.
