Weinstein Apologist and Poster Boy For Mental Health Funding Gets New ABC Late Night Talk Show

 “Alec’s intellect, wit and wealth of life experience afford him a voice and perspective we haven’t seen
before in this format."
  - Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment

As if ABC hasn't pushed the limits of good taste to the edge with the nasty hygiene challenged lookin' Whoopie Goldberg and the nasally Trump hating, self-loathing bigot from Queens NY, Joy Behar, along with the rest of the Cackling Hens of 'The View' in daytime talk, the brilliant people at ABC have decided to Baldwin all over late night.

For those of us who plan on not watching the Academy Awards will sadly miss a teaser for Alec Baldwin's 'Sunday With Baldwin' set to air right after the Oscars telecast. 

The powers that be at Disney/ABC see the man who the left is crediting with resuscitated Saturday Night Live by dawning a bad toupee and made the ancient sketch comedy show relevant again (as if making SNL great again means anything to the average American)means he gets a pass on his personal actions over all these years, including his disturbing interactions with women in the past, and attacking the accusers of his many Hollywood predator friends.
Looking Like He's Fresh From a Three Day
Drinking Binge, Bloated B List Actor

Alec Baldwin At A Recent Public Appearance

Maybe ABC will encourage Alec to open up and share his life stories and his history of Homophobic Rants,  or maybe his numerous  public acts of violence, or maybe even that time he gave the Big Apple a Big Middle Finger.  No, but because even though he's  has been bulldozing his way through the past few months, attacking anyone who disagrees with his stances on the #MeToo movement, he's still a darling of faggish NY stage theater crowd and good NY progtard. That, and he wears one of those goofy "I too have a gay hairdresser who makes me look like I'm a homeless wino" haircuts. Yeah, he gets a pass.

It's probably good that they scheduled Baldwin's show in late night where the low-info millennials seem to pool. If you remember his last unscripted shot at TV talk over at MSBNC. 'Up Late' with Alec Baldwin' was the painfully worst late-night talk show in the history of human media pathology. He's volatile, he's cantankerous, but for some reason people seem to like him.  Well, except Hollywood who won't touch him with a ten foot pole......

NBC: "No one could make a bigger mistake than we did hiring Megyn Kelly!"

ABC: "Hold my beer."

Why the Left Opposes Arming Teachers

by Dennis Prager for TownHall

Why does the left oppose allowing a small number of highly trained teachers and other adults who work at schools to arm themselves? When asked, their response is consistent: “It’s a crazy idea.” And “We need fewer guns, not more guns.”
A New York Times editorial offered the following argument against having any armed teachers:
“Nationwide statistics on police shooting accuracy are not to be found. But if New York is typical, analyses show that its officers hit their targets only one-third of the time. And during gunfights, when the adrenaline is really pumping, that accuracy can drop to as low as 13 percent.”
But if that is an argument against armed teachers, why isn’t it an argument against armed police?
And that argument was Aristotelian compared to this one from a Los Angeles Times editorial:
“If a pistol-strapping chemistry teacher had grabbed her .45 and unloaded on today’s gunman after he killed, what, one student? Three? Five? That would be good news?” 
Of course, no murder is “good news.” But to most of us, one or three or five as compared with 17  murdered is good news. Only those who think it isn’t good news think permitting some teachers and other school staff to be armed is a bad idea.
Beyond such arguments, the left rarely, if ever, explains why allowing some teachers and other adults in a school to be armed is a crazy idea. They merely assert it as a self-evident truth. But, of course, it's not a self-evident truth. On the contrary, having some adults who work at schools be trained in the responsible use of guns makes so much sense that the left's blanket opposition seems puzzling. It shouldn't be. On the question of taking up arms against evil, the left is very consistent. - Keep Reading


This Kentucky school district just voted to let teachers carry concealed guns -

Democrats Starting to Stress Out That Their Big Anti-Gun Shit Show Could Backfire

DT -Today is National Pancake day. There will never be a “National Firearms Day” but it matters little because ever since the Democrats and their winged monkeys in the media decided to exploit the Parkland, FL school shooting to promote their Draconian gun control agenda, guns have been selling like hotcakes! Meanwhile, some Democrats are starting to stress out that the big anti-gun push could backfire and galvanize conservatives by giving them a reason to get out and vote this November. 

The Hill Reports:
"The party is galvanized behind the idea that Congress should take action on gun control, but faces warnings from some Democrats that reaching too far could drive away voters in the swing districts they’ll need to retake the Speaker’s gavel. Shedding caution, this growing chorus of Democrats is calling for extensive reforms, including a ban on military-style weapons. A number of rank-and-file lawmakers view this month’s shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school as a potential tipping point in the years-long congressional stalemate over new gun restrictions. Shedding caution, this growing chorus of Democrats is calling for extensive reforms, including a ban on military-style weapons. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) signed onto the ban as an original co-sponsor — a rare move for the minority leader prone to avoiding official endorsements of specific bills."
"Still it comes as other Democrats warn that embracing aggressive new gun restrictions carries risks, particularly in conservative-leaning districts where gun rights are sacrosanct." 
"It’s one of those fundamental issues that riles up American politics — it’s up there with abortion and immigration — and they need to be very careful,” said a former Democratic leadership aide. It’s easier to demagogue on this than to do something about it and you risk overreaching."
Up until now the left has had all of the energy and momentum but continued failure of party leaders to find a positive message outside of peddling anti-Russia paranoia, race-baiting, weaponizing the #MeToo movement and now trotting out the angry little Boss Hogg as their sock puppet could blow up in their faces if the sleeping giant of conservative voters is shaken from their slumber."

Yeah, Keep Talkin' Little Man.......

Gun-grabbing advocate/media darling David Hogg appeared on MSNBC’s Morning with Squinty and Meat Puppet this morning accusing elected officials of attempting the blame the Florida school shooting on “bureaucracy.” He told the dynamic duo that Gov. Rick Scott should be “held accountable” for the failure of three sheriff’s deputies to confront the gunman.
“They should have been regulating them. I’m not going to allow them to pressure these people because at the end of the day it’s their fault. These elected officials are the boss of these sheriff personnel and just like the president is the boss of the FBI, Governor Rick Scott is essentially the boss of Scott Israel, the sheriff, and as such he should be held accountable. He can’t just blame this on the bureaucracy and expect to get re-elected.”
Sorry, but David Hogg is little more but an ambitious opportunist and a media tool. He has already reached a Gutierrez and Cuomo level of a slimy, duplicitous public persona. I think he craves the attention. Maybe compensating for his sexuality.

Why blame the Governor, yet support Sheriff Israel, whose deflecting blame on everyone else, except himself on how he's handled the situation both before and after the shooting. Newsflash little man: the governor is not the boss of the sheriff. He's an elected official under duty to the those he represents and the state and US constitutions. He can be temporally suspended, but little else can be done without an investigation.

Your democrat talking points have become obvious.  You may now exit stage left.  

This kid has said his argument isn't political but he assigns blame on politicians based on the 'R' after their name. And talk about grabbing your 15 minutes ........Friday he was saying he wont go back to a school until the sheriff is fired.  Saturday: "The Sheriff cannot be held responsible for the actions of his deputies." Sunday: "The Governor must be held responsible for the actions of the deputies."

Fear Not America, Jennifer Will Save Us!

I was beginning to get all worried about America, ya know with high school kids about to round up NRA members and hang them from the nearest lamp post, Russian bots runnin' round in my computer, and frightened Nancy Pelosi might hurt herself using powerful lawn equipment at her age cutting grass down on the southern border and all. But I'm confident I can relax now that Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is taking a year off from her important job of acting (and gettin' nekked) so she can “fix our democracy.”

PJM - "The actress, whose latest movie, Red Sparrow, comes out March 1, says she’ll be working with an organization called Represent.Us to help combat “anti-corruption and stuff.” (See, we’re going to be totally fine.) She hopes to “get young people engaged politically on a local level” and after that, she says, “I don’t know what I’m doing next.”

Okay, Lawrence’s plan seems a little vague, but I’m sure she’ll rise to the challenge. I mean, she’s got all the qualifications of a totally democracy-fixing babe.....or whatever. Sure, it’s possible her Hollywood elitist inarticulateness will tip people off to the charade but, in the age of Donald Trump, she’ll probably just fit right in.

But think about it, who better to “fix” our country than Katniss Everdeen? Since, as Lawrence herself proclaimed, a Trump presidency is “the end of the world,” having someone around who knows how to survive in a post-apocalyptic society is a real asset to America, don't ya think?

She’ll totally be able to fix the environment. Remember, she played Mother in the completely incomprehensible film 'Mother!' which, according to Lawrence, was about “the rape and torment of Mother Earth.” (The movie’s title had an exclamation point in it, so you know it’s serious.) Lawrence played Mother Earth so she must be onto something when she said that the hurricanes in Texas and Florida last year were an example of “Mother Nature’s rage and wrath” over our current political situation. But don’t worry, since she’s Mother Earth, she’ll just save herself. And I’m sure Lawrence’s latest role as Russian operative Dominika Egorova in 'Red Sparrow' will prove useful. We’ll definitely need to have ties to Russia when Lawrence’s democratic “fix” ends up looking a lot like communism. Don’t worry, she’s combat trained. (That’s not relevant, it’s just, like, really cool.)

So, you see, America, we’re in good hands. And, while a year might not seem long enough to totally “fix” our democracy, it’s certainly long enough to do nothing at all. Which is the most likely outcome of Lawrence’s acting hiatus. In the meantime, we’ll have to watch movies with other, less politically-oriented, actresses who lack Lawrence’s acknowledged skills for democracy fixing. It’s too bad, since Jennifer Lawrence is actually kind of a good actress. 

But, of course, democracy fixing comes first. And I’m sure once she’s fixed the democracy and we all live in a utopian society where everyone believes in “stuff” and no one believes in that other “stuff” we’ll all finally be happy.

A Most Ironic and Tone Deaf Tweet If I've Ever Seen One....

The Tide Pod Generation Is Suddenly Bestowed With Great Wisdom

DT- It was only a few short weeks ago when the dangerous craze of teens eating Tide detergent pods and posting the videos on social media had gotten so out of control that YouTube and others removed the videos so as to not encourage them. But in less than a month, the Tide Pod Generation has gone from being a great American shame to being our current leaders in the “debate” on how to run the country.

All that it took was one school shooting, a well-funded and highly-coordinated anti-Second Amendment movement, a crooked cable television network falsely presenting itself as a legitimate source of news, Americans are being scolded by teenagers who have somehow become wise beyond their years and are presented as morally superior to their elders.

Last night’s grotesque orgy of anti-gun propaganda on CNN aside, liberals have come up with a genius new idea to vastly expand their voting base. Lower the voting age to sixteen!
"The real adults in the room are the youth from Parkland, Florida, who are speaking out about the need for meaningful gun control laws. They are proving that civic engagement among young people can make a difference. The ironic part? They can’t even vote yet."
Yeah. No problem. Lower the voting age to include those impressionable minds who are gullible enough to swallow liberal propaganda and then stroke their young egos by tricking them into believing that they will actually have a seat at the table. The manipulation of these shooting survivors may not be the very definition of evil but it gets pretty damn close. It just goes to show that Democrats would sell the souls of their own children to the devil if it helps them to win elections.

You didn't care......

Russia has tried to influence American society, it's internal affairs and elections before. You didn't care until you were told to care. There were statues that stood in place for over a 100 years. You didn't care until you were told to care.  You didn't care that your elected leaders spied, lied and were corrupt. You didn't care until you were told to care. People are killed by guns every day in cities like Chicago, Baltimore and New Orleans. You didn't care about gun violence until you were told to care.......

Squinty Scarborough Admits What Liberals Don't Want To Hear

On this mornings edition of MSNBC's Squinty & Meat Puppet Show, Squinty Joe, just weeks after he tried to paint President Donald Trump as “desperate” and attempting to cover up evidence of obstruction, admits that the chance of Robert Muellar indicting Donald Trump are pretty much ZERO.

As Meat Puppet looks on adoringly, Scarborough compared Mueller to Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, saying the special counsel will leave it up to the voters to decide how to handle the Russia probe, much as Roberts did with an Obamacare case. 
“A good source — really good source told me a few days ago and I wonder if you’ve been picking this up too because I talked about the possible indictment of the president, that Bob Mueller at the end of the day, is a conservative with a small c.  He is not going to indict anybody if he can’t bring that indictment home and he is not. He’s going to do everything he can do to make sure he doesn’t break china in America’s constitutional republic.” 
“The possibility of him actually indicting the president is next to zero, because that’s not who Bob Mueller is. Here Mueller is thinking, it’s not my job to indict the president and kick him out of office. That’s Congress’ job.” - Video
With the ceiling about to fall in and the floor crumbling beneath them, the whole dream of impeachment is about fold and slide down the hill. The left sees the entire Russian collusion story evaporating before their eyes and their own lies being exposed. It will soon be nothing more than senseless fodder for late night comedians talk shows while the Dem's useful idiots in the media continue to try and polish this turd in order to inflict damage on the R's mid-terms chances of holding Congress, and to make excuses for the Blue Wave that fails to show up......

Just For Reference......

The Leftist New Hot Take on Russian Trolls

It was once widely suspected and hard not to notice that democrat friendly media personalities were coordinating their narrative across multiple networks, shows, and publications. They swore they weren't, claiming that they were just doing the Lord's work by delivering honest, hard-hitting journalism. Many found it hard to buy that line. It simply seemed too weird that suddenly they'd all start saying the same things, at the same time, on the same day.

Then, the "JournList Scandal" broke, and scepitics knew they'd been right all along. JournoList was a google group created by Ezra Klein, where over 400 left-leaning reporters, hosts, and so-called thinkers organized messaging and discussed news narratives. It was shut down after being outed, but a media "Orchestrated GroupThink" (or as we call it here at DMF, a Media Circle Jerk) rose to take its place.

It was on full display this weekend as they put forth a particular narrative. It's a ridiculous position, but it's emerging everywhere you look - TV, print, and straight from the mouths of politicians themselves. It seems that a handful of Russian internet trolls and a measly $1.2 million in funding is pretty much the same thing as the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Yes, that's really what they're saying.

As I said Here, Russian meddling in America is nothing new. No one has been able to provide a single shred of evidence that Russian trolling changed a single voter's mind in 2016 election, or any other.  We also know the red menace didn't "hack" Hillary into being the worst, most stilted, candidate in modern history. And we know that the Russian Bear didn't keep her from campaigning in the Midwest.

No wonder the media machine "colludes" to peddle its narratives. No sane person wants to be the only guy saying something this incredibly stupid.

Special Counsel Mueller Indicts Some Rooskies For Basically What They've Been Doing Since the Cold War Started

"The defendants used fake American personas, social media platforms, and other Internet media to advance their scheme....."
"By in or around May 2014, the organization's strategy included interfering with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, with the stated goal of "spread[ing] distrust towards the candidates and the political system in general....."
Is this any different than what the Russians have done since the 1960's, infiltrating college campus in Europe and America, influencing our education system that has given us communist educators and a Leftest sympathetic media?  They just have a new platform to use. And after the weakness of our national security and celebrity leadership for the 8 years of Obama, does this news actually surprise anyone?

The Nutty Negress Of MSNBC and Another Fact-Free Brain Dropping

None other than the New York Times recently declared Joy Reid ‘the heroine of the Resistance” and few would argue with that. The media arm of the Resistance exists solely to lie and smear Donald Trump because the whinny leftist lost their Chicago Jesus and upset most of America doesn’t share in their liberal lunacy. And nobody is as full of shit and better at lying with a smile on her face as Joy Reid. In her latest line of things that are completely untrue, the MSNBC host puts forth the theory that Trump's ICE units have a quota to deport innocent people like math teachers and baseball dads, whatever the hell those are. Here’s the latest drivel and fact-free theory from Reid:
"A friend with experience in the intel world said something to me today that has stayed with me: that the Trump ICE raids terrorizing COC have the feel of filling a quota, and doing so by going after immigrants who will be easy to arrest (non-violent people with community ties.......DREAMers who after all, self-disclosed their addresses and other contact info).
Before we go any further, you maybe wondering what a “COC” is. So am I.  There about a million things that are abbreviated as COC, but none of them seem to fit. If I had to guess I’d say she’s saying “communities of color” because to the left everybody is colored these days, and she she is talking about illegal aliens. Whatever she means, here’s where she’s going with this:
 "If that is the case, are ICE agents essentially behaving the way police departments have when given quotas.. ....Are we living a national "Ferguson scenario" where ICE agents are engaged in deportation number inflation to allow Trump to say he kept his campaign promise to run "illegals" out of the U.S.? Of course Trump will claim they are "dangerous aliens" and gang members...but ICE doesn't have to deal with as many actually dangerous people when they can grab math teachers, doctors and baseball dads who won't resist"
There are many easy ways to disprove her theory, but I have the easiest one – If ICE were targeting innocent math teachers and baseball dads for deportation, that’s all there would be on the news, and that’s not the case. And Trump deported less illegal aliens in his first year than Obama did in his last year. If ICE has a quote system under Trump, their goal or their plan is do less than the previous administration. 

But I refer you to a more respectable news source that, unlike rumor and innuendo of MSNBC, uses actual facts.  And that would be The Washington Times of Feb 15.... 
"Despite claims that ICE agents are rounding up “innocent” illegal immigrants, the agency’s records show that some 90 percent of all arrests last year had criminal convictions or were wanted on charges. Just a bit over 10 percent had no known criminal convictions or charges. A new analysis of data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement done by the Pew Research Center not only popped claims that big percentages of non-criminal illegals were being arrested, but it showed that former President Obama’s administration was much more guilty of arresting non-criminal illegals. 
Pew titled their report, "Most immigrants arrested by ICE have prior criminal convictions, a big change from 2009."

This is Chelsea. Don't Be Like Chelsea.....

The noted Social Scientist, Substance Abuse Researcher, High Ranking Foot-Soldier in the Resistance, Psychic and believed by some to be Comedian, Chelsea Handler, took to the tweeter yesterday to share her latest research on the direction of humanity and our society.

That’s not actually a Darwin quote or even a paraphrasing of his ideas and yet somehow that’s the thing that’s least wrong with this tweet. As you can see Handler says we all need to be brown or gay, or be on board with the brown or gay thing to get on the train to the future, or we are not welcome in her society and will go extinct because we are not equipped to survive like brown & gay people. I think there are about 1.4 Billion or so Chinese that may just have a real problem with her thinking....

"I’m intrigued by Handler’s command that we all need to hop on board this brown & gay thing. How do we do that? I guess people could just become gay, but I was under the impression that homosexuality was inborn and not a choice. While it would be hilarious for Chelsea Handler to try and explain this tweet, it would be infinitely funnier if she actually attempted to do what she’s telling us to do. Who wouldn’t want to see her drunk ass transform into sassy gay Jamaican or a super-butch Puerto Rican dyke? There wouldn’t be anything offensive about that because she’s a woke-ass liberal white elitist that we all know can do no wrong."
This could also all come from a drunkin' stupor, letting loose her secret fantasies of being a Kardashian mud-shark, spittin out little pick-a-ninnies everywhere.......or maybe I’m trying to read to much into this.  After all, with Handler’s substance abuse, crippling emotional distress because of DJT, and liberal lunacy, this could just be her attempt to order a pizza that got away from her.

PoonChang Olympic Update

BULLETIN- 2/12:  Despite Kim Jong Un's Ugly Sister Yo grabbing the American Media's full praise and filling their drool cups to the brim for giving VP Mike Pence the Stink Eye at the opening ceremonies, and the fact Global Warming has delayed many of the scheduled outside events due to  cold and windy conditions, this weekends real action and news took place inside on the IceHere are just a few highlights from this weekend:
The flamboyant Mike Pence hating gay Ice Skater, Adam Rippon, got his panties in a twist for only placing 3rd in his portion of the team competition Sunday. So good was he, his Rump Ranger commentator friend Johnnie Weir said, “Had me quaking.”  Note to Adam: Don't act more effeminate than the female skaters on the team and stop dressing like Nancy Kerrigan.....then maybe you will impress the judges, just sayin..... 

In the women's portion of the team skating event, the sole female member of the Palestinian National Ice Team, Hadia Mohammad Tashid, shown here after her failed attempt at the first ever "Quaduple axel-backflip-triple toe loop reverse spin salchow" in ice skating competition, just after she lost her place on the ice when her Hijab slipped down over her face. The Palestinian team finish 26th, just edging out the team from Somalia.

In one of the biggest upsets of the night, the Canadians swept the Skateless Ice Dancing Pairs competition after the odds on favored World Champion Team from Spain, seen here executing their signature "Barcelona Butt Spin", scored low on style points after making uncharacteristic mistakes. 

Although he is barred by governments from entering almost every country on the the Asian Continent, MFNS Ace Correspondent, Earl Of Taint ,has managed to sneak into South Korea to give us his first-person report from the PoonChang Olympic Games.

The Gilded Monument to Journalistic Vanity Crumbles Before Us

There was a time when the American News Media was who most of the world looked to for the best example of unvarnished truth as could be had. But then came the advent of 24 Hr. news broadcast and with it the rise of the overly self-important media reporters, high payed on-air talking heads celebrities and an undeniable political bias.  So when we see such arrogant people who deem themselves higher then us because they, and they only hold the cup of truth, can we not feel a bit triumphant when they stumble and fall into a pile of their own excrement?

Standing just a half-mile from the U.S. Capitol  is the grand monument to journalistic vanity called 'The Newseum", a seven-level 470,000-square-foot grandiose palace with a facade constructed from 50 tons of Tennessee marble. It commemorates the news business with 60,000-plus baubles and artifacts from the trade. Its owner, the Freedom Forum Foundation, spent $450 million building its palace of journalism in 2008.  But the FFF has hoisted its flag of surrender in the form of a press release. The Newseum owners can no longer afford to subsidize the palace with their endowment's money, and are having to explore plans to sell the building.

Dubbed by even the Washington Post as 'A Slow Motion Disaster", for the hefty price of $24.95 a head you won't get to witness such historical media exhibits such as a 5,000 year old cuneiform clay tablet announcing Sargon I ascension to the Throne, oh no.  But what you will get to see is the Watergate break-in door, props and costumes from the movie 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy', a mock-up of Tim Russert’s office, posters and reporters’ notebooks from the Ferguson protests, Andy Rooney‘s typewrite, a Boston Globe reporter’s running shoes, hundreds of press passes, and for some strange reason, even Bono’s jacket, and much more.

The museum has posted an annual deficit of between 2 and 9 million a year since it opened, even as it has paid hefty salaries to its operators and top executives. But what the hey, it's Washington DC, where it's all about spending other peoples money. Right?

The only thing the Newseum really has going for it is its daily collection of front pages from around the country. Do you need a $450 million building to do that?

One Government Most Certainly Did Meddle in the Election

by George  NEUMAYR - The media, in its frenzy to normalize left-wing political espionage, says simultaneously of the Nunes memo: there is nothing to see in it, but don’t look. The intensity of the media’s attacks on a Republican is always in proportion to the degree to which he is impeding one of its causes. The doggedness of Nunes — his refusal to let a politicized FBI and Justice Department stonewall his committee — has thrown considerable light on the real scandal of 2016: not that Trump colluded with the Russians to win but that the Obama administration colluded with Hillary to defeat him. One government most certainly did meddle in the election — ours.

The more that the probe is put under the microscope, the more outrageous it appears, with Hillary partisans and Trump haters figuring into it at every crucial turn. Hillary didn’t need a campaign headquarters in Brooklyn; she already had one in Washington, D.C. John Brennan, auditioning to be her CIA director, laid the groundwork for the Trump-Russia probe by hyping bogus intelligence; Trump hater Peter Strzok formally opened the probe at the FBI just weeks after whitewashing Hillary’s mishandling of emails; the slop of Christopher Steele, Hillary’s opposition researcher, served as the basis for spying on all of Carter Page’s communications with the Trump campaign, while the spouse of a Justice Department official involved in the probe shoveled more of the slop to her husband.

Like Watergate, the probe was not only amateurish and paranoid but fruitless. The media, that stalwart defender of civil liberties, has adopted in recent days a comically cavalier view of Carter Page’s violated ones. Hey, the investigation into him was close enough for government work, we’re told. And, besides, it serves him right for talking to Russians.

Yes, Schiffty Adam Is the Dems New Star Douche Bag

How many times did we hear after the Nunes memo was released (over Democratic objections) that the GOP was going to continue the cover-up by blocking the much-longer Schiff memo by the same party-line vote?  Well oops, the committee voted, unanimously,  to release the 10 page Schiff memo. So now Schiff can say that with both memos out there, people can decide for themselves, right? No, that would make too much sense.

Schiff is lying liberal pond scum.  There are reports that he intentional filled the memo with info the DOJ/FBI will want to redact. Why would he do that you ask? He’s going to throw a temper tantrum when his memo gets redacted, saying it’s a political retraction, so the cover-up continues. 
“What I'm more concerned about ... is that they make political redactions," the California Democrat said. "That is, not redactions to protect sources or methods, which we’ve asked the Department of Justice and the FBI to do, but redactions to remove information they think is unfavorable to the president. That could be a real problem, and that's our main concern at this point.”
Clearly the cunning plan of the House GOP was to release the memo only because they were conspiring with Trump to block it in a different way. Heads I win tails you lose. No matter how much someone detests Trump, I can’t understand how they give any credence to this dirtbag.

......And it seems Adam may be a little bit of a perv also.

To Crunch or Not to Crunch. That is the Question

Doritos New Low Noise-High Performance 'Lady-Friendly' Chips

Ya know for far too long, ladies like myself have had to sit by the wayside as we watch our men enjoying the delicious flavored tortilla chips known to the world as Doritos. As much as we might try to enjoy them ourselves, certain things have always gotten in the way. The crunching for one, is far too loud!

As a woman, I pride myself on being as accommodating as humanly possible, and “too loud” crunching could interrupt a man when he is explaining to me why I am wrong, or while watching his favorite TV show. 

How can one be seen and not heard with all that CRUNCHING going on? Chomp chomp chomp! So unladylike! And the powder! Don’t even get me started on the powder. Why, my favorite pair of white gloves is all but ruined with red-gold nacho cheese stains from the last time I attempted to eat some!

But finally, the good people at Doritos have an answer to my womanly woes! They are now creating a lady-friendly version of their classic chips that will crunch less and be less “messy,” thereby preventing us from ruining our good white gloves or — heaven forbid — being compelled to lick our fingers. The chips will also be smaller in size — so that they may fit more comfortably in our tiny ladyhands and fit comfortably inside our tiny ladymouths — and will come in a package that we can fit inside our purses for discreet on-the-go snacking.

PepsiCo’s female lady global chief executive Indra Nooyi just gets us:
“When you eat out of a flex bag — one of our single-serve bags — especially as you watch a lot of the young guys eat the chips, they love their Doritos, and they lick their fingers with great glee, and when they reach the bottom of the bag they pour the little broken pieces into their mouth, because they don’t want to lose that taste of the flavour, and the broken chips in the bottom,” Indra Nooyi, global chief executive at PepsiCo said in an interview with Freakonomics Radio. “Women would love to do the same, but they don’t. They don’t like to crunch too loudly in public. And they don’t lick their fingers generously and they don’t like to pour the little broken pieces and the flavour into their mouth.”
This sounds really lovely and I personally am quite excited about all this. It’s great to be a woman these days. Hey, we can even be Colonel Sanders! And flavored tortilla chips are now no longer only the province of men, or just another incitement for lovemakin'. And I say that's a win Baby!
