First lady Melania Trump faced scrutiny on Wednesday for tweeting about Christmas while special counsel Robert Mueller was testifying in front of two House committees. "#Christmas planning has begun in the East Wing at the @WhiteHouse," Melania Trump tweeted. "I'm looking forward to sharing our final vision for this unique tradition in the coming months." Many questioned the timing of her tweet considering it came as Mueller was concluding his testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee. He was testifying about the two-year long investigation that concluded that no member of the Trump campaign knowingly conspired with Russia to win the election.

Comments:

Wow, Democrats are pretty pathetic when they can criticize somebody for talking about Christmas. Vacuous and vacant, bereft of sensibility.

Hat tip to Melania!! I'm looking forward to Christmas in the White House. (I suspect that HGTV will not be broadcasting any Christmas specials about it.) It's difficult to express how foolish the Democrats looked yesterday. It's equally difficult to understand how blind they remained yesterday evening. But, given the fact that they have been blind since November 2016, it's not surprising.

So Mueller testifying means we are not supposed to go on with our lives? I actually bought a new sweeper, did some grocery shopping, made dinner, put birdseed out and took a shower. Too much? Am I self centered? I guess I didn't get the memo that said I needed to get my blankie and curl up in a fetal position on the floor. By the way I have all my Christmas shopping done. I guess that means our First Lady can plan the White House decorations. Oh man, just when I don't think they could get any crazier they prove me wrong.

I question the ''Many questioned the timing'' statement in the above lede. Capital-B Capital-S! Christmas speaks of salvation to come. What better way than that to climb out of the slime-pit the Dems pushed us into. Melania Trump is the first cleansing breath of air since the oh-so-special counsel was appointed.

I don't think it's too early. The White House is a pretty big house. There are a lot of volunteers to put in place, a 'to do list' that would probably stretch from one side of the Potomac to the other. Parties to plan and decorate for, and on and on. (Please Melania, no red trees, ok?) I'm making Christmas plans too. I am expecting to be a great grandma for the first time around Christmas! The left leaning loonies are so disappointed that life goes on even after their many failed attempts to oust this president. If I weren't so disgusted with them I would almost feel sorry for them. Poor babies.

So, what's the issue here? The Mueller hearings are/were unimportant (except, IMHO, they disclosed that Mueller was an empty figurehead of a witch hunt run by his rabid Dim prosecutor staff). Christmas is a very important holiday for us Christian Americans. Thank, you, First Lady, for recognizing this.

Well, what would you call that big beautiful Christmas gift that the democrats gave to Trump? Mueller had no idea whether he was pitching or catching. It was well-rehearsed on the democrat side, but the truth won the day. Mueller was as if he had no idea why he was even there. I think he had visions of Bill Barr stepping on his claspers and knew that if he lied, he would be the next in line for time in the clink. Too much Christmas in July? Nope!

So?? Another person, actually doing their job. Which is planning holiday events for the WH, which include decorations. All this stuff has to be done months in advance. The term many stores use is Christmas in July. It wasn't her husband who was testifying now was it? Many people know how to multitask and accomplish a lot, and they can listen while doing so. So why aren't they attacking Hillary for checking her emails while she was actually at the witness table waiting to begin? Kudos for her actually listening to the testimony in the first place.

A survey released today shows that 40% of American adults believe in creationism, that "God created them in their present form within roughly the past 10,000 years," reported Gallup. For comparison, only 22% of adults believe mankind developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life and that God had no part in the process. On a related note, the survey found that 33% believe human beings developed from simple life forms with God's help over millions of years.

I'm mortified. I just took the 15-question multiple-choice quiz on religious knowledge that Pew included in its new survey of Americans' religious knowledge...and I got one of them wrong. Which one, you're asking? It was: "Which of the following is one of Buddhism's four 'noble truths'?" I chose "the truth that every living being has an immortal soul" instead of "the truth of suffering." OK, so I got 14 of them right, and when I look at the full 32-question survey, I figure I'd score a 31. But I teach religion, for crying out loud, and I fit into all the right categories besides.

The Jesuit flagship publication in the United States, America magazine, has published an article defending Marxism and comparing the murderous, atheist ideology to Christianity. In “The Catholic Case for Communism,” America writer Dean Dettloff says that the militant atheism of Marxist politics is “understandable” because “Christianity has so often been a force allied to the ruling powers that exploit the poor.” As a number of prospective presidential candidates from the Democrat party are openly donning the mantle of socialism, America took the issue one step further, suggesting that the negative reaction to “Bernie Sanders’s inspiring 2016 primary bid and the electoral success of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) presidential campaign has been accused of retaliating against staffers for unionizing, as new details of the federal labor complaint made on July 19 continue to surface. An unnamed individual filed the complaint to the National Labor Relations Board on July 19 and alleged five potential violations, including retaliation, discipline, discharge, interrogation, and repudiation. Details of the complaint against the Bernie Sanders campaign have been scarce, but Bloomberg Law obtained a copy of the charge, which details the allegations further. While anyone can file a charge, the individual claims to be a staffer, who accused the Sanders campaign of retaliating after he or she “organized the bargaining unit.”

There is a reason why MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s ratings have cratered so dramatically recently. Here’s what she told her viewers on Wednesday night about former special counsel Robert Mueller’s disastrous performance before House lawmakers. I will tell you, I was not quite sure what to expect from today’s testimony by Robert Mueller. If you had told me that today, we would get from Robert Mueller over the course of these seven hours such a blunt accounting from him…of who in the president’s campaign was compromised by Russia, and how, specifically how they were compromised by Russia, including the president. That’s certainly putting a positive spin on the day, isn’t it?

Two things can be true about former special counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony yesterday. It was damaging to President Trump, contradicting the president’s key claims and defenses about the Russia probe. And it all but closed the door on the likelihood of Democrats impeaching the president – given the congressional math. Here’s a fuller breakdown on our six takeaways from yesterday: Mueller contradicted Trump’s story on the Russia probe: “It is not a witch hunt,” Mueller said… “It was not a hoax.”… Russia’s intervention helped Trump’s campaign — not Hillary Clinton’s… Trump was NOT exonerated by the report… And “problematic is an understatement” is how Mueller described Trump’s use of the WikiLeaks

The House Judiciary Committee is preparing to petition a federal judge to release former special counsel Robert Mueller’s most closely guarded evidence: the material he gathered using a secretive grand jury. The petition, which will be made to Beryl Howell, the chief judge of Washington, D.C.’s federal district court, asks that the material be provided to Congress, though it does not seek the public release of the grand jury evidence. House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler has sought Mueller’s grand jury evidence for months, arguing that it’s essential for Congress to view it in order to fully investigate potential abuses of power by President Donald Trump and his inner circle.
