Live by Pettifoggery, Die by Pettifoggery.


Cicero is remembered today as a great Roman orator, but few recall that he was a lawyer by trade. Cicero’s eloquence eventually enabled him to rise to the rank of Consul, in which capacity he presided over the execution without trial of five Senators. He was exiled for this unlawful act and, at length, was himself illegally executed. There’s a lesson here for the Democrats who increasingly employ lubricious lawyers to circumvent the rule of law.

Cicero’s career, which contributed to the republic’s collapse, came to mind when Democrat Bill Nelson hired attorney Marc E. Elias — a “recount specialist” with ties to Hillary Clinton and George Soros — to sue the state of Florida over the outcome of its recent senatorial race. Elias made his intentions clear upon arriving in the Sunshine State: “We’re doing this not just because it’s automatic… we’re doing it to win.”

In the eyes of Democrats, the law is just something to get around when it comes to winning what you want. That’s why they’re dangerous. Our government, like the Roman republic, is based on the principle that no one is above the law. The Democrats have assiduously undermined that principle, but this is as dangerous for them as it is for us. They should consider Cicero, whose executioners had been sent by his young protege, Octavian. The latter knew about those five executions and the former wound up with his head in a bag. Both men were above the law. - David Catron 

Tell Me Again Who Are The Party of Science Deniers

 
It's bad enough we have to witness the Democrats attempt with no shame what-so-ever to dismantle the sacred idea of America, pretending all the while, in the name of free and fair elections to proceed making a mockery of our system by stealing elections right in front of our eyes. The same Americans proclaim their liberal tolerance as their supporters followers Brownshirt and Jackboot their way through our culture.

These same people support without hesitation the grand scheme portending the rapidly advancing death of mother earth by academic grant money fueled pseudoscience and dystopian Sci-Fi novel fear mongering, some even claiming man-made global warming deniers should be punished for their thought crimes. And let's not forget their "race is just a social construct".  But who are really the deniers of true proven science? The Deniers of Genetics and Biology.

Democrats: ‘Cruel and Unscientific’ to Define Legal Sex by Biology 

Breitbart
It is “cruel and unscientific” to define a person’s legal sex by their biology, says a pro-transgender complaint signed by 98 Democratic House legislators.
The Democrats’ statement was sent to President Donald Trump’s administration after the New York Times reported that the administration will formally clarify that the sex of people involved in sex-discrimination legal fights will be based on their male or female body.
Trump’s biology-determines-sex policy “makes it clear that members of this administration are willing to … solidify an archaic, dogmatic, and alarming view of the world,” the Democrats complain their letter to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The Democrats and transgender advocates want government agencies to let people define their legal sex by declaring their internal feeling of male or female “gender identity,” regardless of their male or female body and biology. Yet there is no scientific or legal measure of “gender identity.”
This identity-beats-biology change would erase any recognition of biological women and biological men from the law. Trump’s biology-determines-sex policy would preserve the nation’s existing law and culture that accepts the near-universal view that that women and men are legally equal but also different and complementary.
The letter also gaslights Americans by pretending that the law already defines sex by “gender identity.” This pretense allows the Democrats to claim that Trump’s “re-defining [sex] raises countless practical, legal, and medical questions.”

So Now Butt Hurt Is Grounds For Litigation??

 Another Night of Pillow Biting at Acosta's Crib
According to some news reports, CNN, on behalf of their highest profile self-important, grandstanding asshole jerk Jim Acosta, may be preparing to sue the Trump administration for suspending Acosta's press credentials. The action was taken after Acosta's latest juvenile tantrum at the last WH Presser.  I'm not clear on why CNN thinks they can sue and for what, seeing the White House is the sole arbiter of who holds WH Press credentials.

Former ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson, himself a  confrontational thorn in the side of Ronald Reagan for eight years, appeared Sunday on CNN's Lil Brian Stelter's "Reliable Sources" (ironic name to say the least) and said he believed a lawsuit had already been filed. Donaldson said he was told about the possible legal action because "I've been asked to give an affidavit, which I prepared, to be submitted to the court."

And once again, the media muddles the water with fake news. Acosta was not barred from the White Press Room solely for being the usual ass we have all come to know, but was suspended , just as WH statement issued read, for the treatment of the intern, treatment the media immediately tried to quash with their own loony conspiracy theory.
"The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it‘s an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration. 
As a result of today’s incident, the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice." - Sarah Sanders
I think we may have taken a turn in relation to the view of the media in this country. The Media may have lost almost all of their fragile credibility, but finally have what they hoped for, Victim Status. And with their newly attained status as victim, they can now use any word, any situation they please against DJT, just as every other whiny tantrum throwing group that claims victimhood for one thing or another. 

UPDATE: In an interview with Axios, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) claimed that it is “very squarely within our responsibility to find out” if Trump’s attacks targeting CNN and the Washington Post are an abuse of White House authority and power. So get out the body armor and the good Bourbon, this might be real interesting to watch......

The Queen of All America: A Memoir


Middle Finger News Book Review

Former first lady Michelle Obama has chosen to bless us with her first book post-White House,  a memoir titled “Becoming” that is set to hit the store shelves Tuesday. It follows Obama’s journey from the South Side of Chicago to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Middle Finger News was able to steal attain an advance readers copy of the 426-page book and undertook the arduous task of reading it so you don't have to. We even mustered enough enthusiasm to write a review for you, because we're just that kinda people.......

Even though she resides in the top .001% of wealth, power and celebrity, Ms. Obama never lets us forget the deep personal pain of growing up in a middle-class, two-parent household and receiving one of the finest educations the world can offer. She gives the reader the impression she's felt most of her life people saw her a large unattractive woman, because so many address her "Sir".

The most interesting parts of the generally boring ramblings were about the Fame and Fortune of White House Years, when America dressed her in the finest, and kissed her feet as their Queen Mrs. Obama tells of her overwhelming feeling of apprehension to take all those wonderful royal, incredibly luxurious, taxpayer-paid vacations, vacations sometime under the guise of education, that along with moms Robinson and daughters Sushi and Malaria, cost the us millions of dollars. But, because she is was elected queen of all America, she considers that cost her just due. She bravely confesses to us her mother being “a little bit” wary about her effeminate future son-in-law being part cracker, a product of a white mom and black dad. But she tells us that apprehension was finally wiped away while kicked back collecting a pension and living in her own apartment with antique four-poster bed and sitting area on the third floor of the White House, living large at the taxpayer expense. 

The most touching parts of Mrs. Obamas memoirs tells us one of her warmest memories as First Lady was while a lengthy taxpayer funded vacation in Europe she was honored by the city of Milan and Italian Government with a sculpture done in her honor, 'The Grosso Culo', capturing in stone the very essence of America's First lady. Mrs. Obama also devotes a chapter of thoughts on her devoted love of Charity work and another on memories of her many requested Television appearances, and a non-blockbuster movie of her budding bromance with a young Barack.

All in all, The Prestigious Middle Finger Book Review gives  Michelle Obama's Memoir "Becoming" 2 of 7 Stars. It's printed on really nice quality paper and is quite hefty for it's size, so if you happen to receive a copy as a gift this holiday season, it will make an excellent doorstop and the cover image should help keep rodents at bay. ~T.M.

It's One Thing To Refuse To Condemn. It's Another To Defend

It's hard to imagine any organization trying harder to becoming less respected then this one. CNN is the network which featured Chris Cuomo defending antifa violence, claiming that it was a better kind of violence than the violence which might be offered by its victims. He doesn't bother to mention that antifa is the one that starts the attacks and that there is usually zero violence offered by its victims. They're too busy bleeding from a headwound from a bicycle lock.

CNN is the network which featured Don Lemon claiming that the mob that harassed, threatened, and chased Ted Cruz out of a restaurant were "just people who were upset," and further riotsplained that this "was not mob behavior." The specific group Don Lemon defended was SmashRacism, which is the same group that just attempted to smash through Tucker Carlson's door when his wife and children were in the house. He actually defended the specific group that just attacked a journalist's home.

When commentator Matt Lewis brought up SmashRacism -- again, the very group that just attempted a home invasion of Tucker Carlson, and its chasing Cruz out of a restaurant, calling it mob behavior, CNN's Brooke Baldwin again defended SmashRacism, claiming it wasn't a "mob," and in fact forbidding the very word from being uttered. So we have CNN repeatedly defending antifa's tactics, and we have them repeatedly defending the tactics of this particular sect of antifa, SmashRacism.

Remember, this is the network that screams "You're threatening the media!" when people chant "CNN sucks!

Bullet Head Has His List of Trump Investigations Ready To Go

Future Chairman of the House Government Oversight Committee:
Rep. Elijah "Bullet Head" Cummings (D-Md.)

Seizing power of the House from Republican control, two house committees in particular are likely to take the lead in investigating the Trump administration; the Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the Judiciary Committee. Democrats on each committee have for the past two years been keeping a list of everything they believe deserve investigation as they begin working toward their tricky goal of impeachment. In September, Democrats on the Oversight Committee, led by the honorable Bullet Head Cummings (D-Md.), who represents the Democrat Paradise of Baltimore and presumably will become chair of the committee in January, posted a list of 64 instances when they requested the Republican-controlled committee subpoena the Trump administration and others for records related to various oversight issues. Each time, committee chair Rep. Trey Gowdy and the Republicans told them to stop wasting their time and go fly a kite.

You can read the whole list. But here is a sampling of the topics Cummings and his Democrat collaborators have set their sights on:
  • White House security clearances (involving Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, national security adviser John Bolton, and others)
  • The controversial addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 census
  • The Trump administration’s Muslim travel ban 
  • The State Department’s decision to close its cyber office
  • The Environmental Protection Agency’s use of a political loyalty list 
  • The possible participation of Cambridge Analytica’s foreign employees in US elections
  • The deadly ambush in Niger that left four American soldiers dead 
  • The use of private email by White House officials 
  • Trump’s response to the hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico
  • The dealings of the Trump Foundation Potential conflicts of interest between Kushner’s business actions and his policy advice
  • Payments the Trump Organization received from foreign sources
  • Russian intervention with state voting systems
  • Former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s contacts with foreign officials

Faced with information requests and subpoenas from multiple committees across multiple fronts, the White House and the entire administration will have a tough job responding and getting anything done for the country.
Sleazy Shitweasel (D-CA)
The House Intelligence Committee, under the chairmanship of the sleazy Adam Schiff will certainly revive any aspects of the Trump-Russia probe he can, and will be shouting them from the rooftops media round-tables every Sunday morning. And you can bet the Homeland Security Committee will investigate the Trump administration’s family-separation policy, and the Armed Services Committee will examine whether there was any reason for Trump to send 15,000 troops to the border to deal with a migrant caravan.

A fusillade of probes salaciously covered by the media like hungry jackals on prey will probably present more of a threat to Trump than an impeachment inquiry that, even if successful in the House, would run into a brick wall in the Senate.

Jimmy Acosta vs. DJT - Round Number Sit Down and Shut Up!

UPDATE: The day didn't end well for Little Jimmy. Tonight he was denied entry to the WH.  A statement issued by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders:
"President Trump believes in a free press and expects and welcomes tough questions of him and his Administration. We will, however, never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern. This conduct is absolutely unacceptable. It is also completely disrespectful to the reporter’s colleagues not to allow them an opportunity to ask a question. President Trump has given the press more access than any President in history. 
Contrary to CNN’s assertions, there is no greater demonstration of the President’s support for a free press than the event he held today. Only they would attack the President for not being supportive of a free press in the midst of him taking 68 questions from 35 different reporters over the course of an hour and a half – including several from the reporter in question. The fact that CNN is proud of the way their employee behaved is not only disgusting, it is an example of their outrageous disregard for everyone, including young women, who work in this Administration. 
As a result of today’s incident, the White House is suspending the hard pass of the reporter involved until further notice."
Well Jim, there's something to put in diary tonight.

UPDATE#2 - CNN announced they stand behind their reporters actions. This shouldn't surprise anyone with more than 3 good brain cells because if CNN was concerned a bit about their integrity as an actual news organization, they would have pulled narcissistic shitweasel out of the WH long ago. But, here we are.....

A Bad Night for The Oprah & Taylor Swift

Nancy Pelosi last night told a cheering victory crowd: “Let’s hear it for pre-existing medical conditions!!” Not Kidding. Maybe this will be good reminder to everyone how crazy the Dems are. And Ocasio-Cortez will remind us too, every time she opens her mouth.

Meanwhile, CNN's resident commie racial bigot, Van Jones, had a real sad and had to admitted the much ballyhooed Blue Wave didn't materialize. More like a Blue Puddle seeing the dems didn't even match the historical average mid-term gain by the out of power party. And the poor star-struck media's favorite Texas anti-Trump giant killer, Bozo O'Rourke, flushed millions entertainment elite dumped in his lap to defeat Senator Ted. Silly Fools.

And, so it appears, the good people of the Great State of Georgia may have rejected The Oprah's gurlfriend that tried to pass herself off as MLK and looks like Mike Tyson in drag, who has hinted at destruction of  Stone Mountain National Monument, and stomping on the Constitution cause she don't like guns. It's of little surprise that the contest has yet to be called seeing the dems started yelling voter suppression weeks ago. Heaven forbid the laws be followed so the rightful voters votes aren't nullified. Everything is racist!

And of course, what would a media event these days be without the media making a fool of themselves. After praising our now divided government at the same time bemoaning the further division of the country they refuse to admit they themselves played the largest part creating. 

Their Victory will be hollow. Their exuberance short lived.
