March

Original Article

The Women's March is set to take place on Saturday. Some wintry weather is expected to dampen turnout at the fourth annual event being held in the nation's capital. Much like the current crop of Democratic candidates, the various activists and affiliates that once participated in the demonstration have recently begun turning on one another, as any coalition of radical leftists tends to do. This year, a week-long program "that includes a story slam, brunch with drag queens and civil disobedience training for activists" was held in the run up to Saturday's event,

They aren't going because Trumps economy is kicking butt and they want to go shopping.

The article doesn’t mention the attendance at last year’s march but I seem to remember that it was pathetically small. Where are the unhinged Ashley Judd and Madonna? And if Jane Fonda can fly to NYC to protest climate craziness, why isn’t she in DC today? Maybe a lot of the original pussy hat brigade has actually realized that they are doing quite well under PDT and they’ve left Illary in the dustbin since the original march was all about her loss of the 2016 election.

The article's accompanying photo of the small crowd used a camera angle to make few look like many. Show me a shot with a telephoto lens then we'll talk. Since the wimmen stand for nothing, they will fall for anything. The two guys in bottom right of photo seem to wish they were somewhere else.

Women already have the ultimate power in the world. They decide who gets to reproduce and who doesn't. The problem (or blessing) with this crowd is they don't do a lot of reproducing. The ones who are really girls are not likely to get friendly enough with a guy for that to happen. Problem solves itself.

If they really wanted high attendance at this thing, they would hold it when the weather is warmer. Women don't like being out in the cold. Just more evidence of how stupid these people are.

They are predicting a turnout of 3,000 to 10,000. That means they will actually have a turnout of only 300 to 1,000 and that the media, who will make up at least half of the turnout will report a turnout of 30000 to 100,000. Expect lots of tight camera shots rather than empty crowd shots on the news.

I don't give a tinker's dam for the "woke" joke parade. I do care about the HUGE "March for Life" that will be held in our nation's capital this coming Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020 ... rain, snow, slush, whatever ... in Washington, D.C. these marchers will mark the shameful and disgraceful 47th anniversary of the Supreme Court deciding to legislate from the bench and find "laws" and "rights" our Founding Fathers (back in 1790) had hid away in the "penumbra" of the Constitution! This Supreme Court decision would be laughable if it wasn't so serious and heartbreaking. It was the gateway to where we stand now: If you don't want your baby (sorry ... fetus) any time up until the day it is born and even a little after that then you have the "right" to murder him/her. The baby, however, has NO rights --- and apparently no soul of its own. March on Wednesday the 22nd if you can!

I suspect that one reason attendance is so low is that many of them don't realize that those pussyhats are actually supposed to go on top of their heads, and they can't quite figure exactly how they're supposed to keep them in place down there.

You won’t hear this from the media, but America under President Trump is doing well. Very well, in fact. A true read of the state of our union is simple: We’re strong and we’re getting stronger fast. The labor participation rate is breaking records. Unemployment is at historic lows across all demographics. Wages are increasing, faster for those at the lower income levels than for those at the top. China has agreed to a historic trade deal. Congress (finally) passed the new US-Mexico-Canada trade deal which will create jobs across the continent. The stock market keeps breaking records despite impeachment. There’s almost too much good news to pack into one paragraph.

The more Nancy Pelosi tries to get people to take her seriously, the more ridiculous she is. During the impeachment vote, it was, “Everyone will take us seriously if we all just wear black.” For an entire month after that, it was, “Everyone will take us seriously if we withhold the articles of impeachment from the Senate.” This week, it was, “Everyone will take us seriously if we have a solemn procession across the floor of the Capitol.” No? Not that? How about fancy ceremonial pens? Would that make anyone take them seriously? Any takers? Nancy stopped just short of ordering commemorative plates from the Franklin Mint

My ideal is full employment – work for everyone… and the right to work guaranteed,” Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said in a Friday press conference reported on by the Anadolu Agency. The Mexican president’s comment comes as approximately 3,000 migrants from Honduras and El Salvador are reportedly making their way from their home countries through Guatemala.

Portsmouth, Virginia, councilman Nathan Clark participated in his city’s Second Amendment Sanctuary vote while carrying an AR-15. The Virginian-Pilot reports that two liberals, Councilman Shannon Glove and Vice Mayor Lisa Lucas-Burke, were critical of Clark’s decision to bring his gun to the vote and asked him to apologize for doing so. Councilman Bill Moody defended Clark, saying, “I do not believe that Council(man) Clark needs to apologize for exercising his right as a law enforcement officer to carry his weapon to a public meeting. I can appreciate liberals’ knee jerk reactions but if they have a problem with the law they should use the system they now control to change it.”

Lev Parnas is to the Impeachment Trial as Julie Swetnick was to the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, if Republicans let Democrats get away with it. Recall that after the Kavanaugh hearings were done, but before the committee vote, Democrats leaked that they had a surprise witness they had known about for several weeks, Christine Blasey Ford. Her claim that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school fell apart when the four people she said were present in the house that night all said they had no memory of such an event — not just the sexual assault, but even of being in the house as a group.

The taxi driver taking us to our car was listening to NPR. A radio show host and his caller were lying about Trump, venomously declaring him a serial liar. Perhaps it was because I was so tired that I had zero tolerance. I spouted, “Those guys are lying jerks!”

If the Trump era has taught us anything, it's that large numbers of white people in the United States are motivated at least in part by racism in the voting booth. Donald Trump ran an openly racist campaign for president, calling Mexicans rapists and criminals, regularly retweeting white supremacists and at least initially balking at repudiating former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Trump made it clear in his campaign that "Make America Great Again" meant that America was greater when white people's power was more sweeping and more secure. White voters approved of that message by a whopping 58 percent to 37 percent.

He initially denied the affair under oath, which led to his impeachment in December 1998. Months earlier, Chelsea Clinton, who was 18 years old around the time the Lewinsky scandal played out, put herself between her parents

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said they intend to repay £2.4m of taxpayer money for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their UK family home. The new arrangement comes into effect in spring this year, the palace said. The statement comes after senior royals held talks on Monday about the future role for the couple, who this month announced they wanted to "step back" as senior royals.
