After the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles let it be known that most of the team had no intention of showing up at the White House, indicating that only the owner and the mascot would make an appearance, President Trump canceled the invitation.

The organization then said they might agree to be honored if the event could be postponed until Trump had gone to Singapore.

Here’s my advice to Trump and all of his successors: Stop inviting sports teams to the White House. I don’t know who started the silly tradition, but it’s time to put an end to it. These guys get more than enough mindless adulation from their fans, not to mention more money in a year than most of us will make in our lifetimes.

Save these celebratory occasions for military veterans and the sort of anonymous Americans who are trotted out only once a year and seated in the balcony during State of the Union addresses. You know – those folks who have done something besides pass a football or dribbled a basketball, something extraordinarily self-sacrificial that reminds us what actual heroes look like.

⦿  Jimmy Kimmel, who has made a career out of demeaning President Trump and members of his family and administration, got the stoopnagels in his studio audience to laugh and applaud by mocking Mrs. Trump’s accent.

That is despicable on so many levels, I hardly know where to begin. First of all, she has an accent because she’s foreign-born, but it’s not entirely beside the point that she’s fluent, if possibly accented, in five languages. But that cuts no ice with the snot who wastes an hour and a half every night taking cheap shots at a guy who, on top of all his other accomplishments, hosted a long-running TV show that was more successful than Kimmel’s.

I know that Kimmel would claim he’s showing courage by taking on Trump, but we all know better. Real courage would require him to make fun of Al Sharpton’s accent, but he’d never dare, even though the race-hustler was born in the U.S.

Besides, isn’t Kimmel and the other self-righteous show biz bimbos forever reminding us that America is a land of immigrants? Well, it’s a fact that most immigrants have accents, even if they come here from English-speaking countries.

Before we move on, I’m curious where they dredge up the audience for shows like Kimmel’s, “The View” and Stephen Colbert. Do the local zoos rent out their clap-happy seals?

⦿  Although the Supreme Court ruling in favor of baker Jack Phillips was decided on very narrow grounds, at least the Court, by a 7-2 vote, came down in favor of religious rights. Only Sonia Sotomayor and the woman Rush Limbaugh refers to as Ruth Buzzi Ginsburg displayed their usual bigotry towards every religion with the exception of Islam.

On the sensitive topic of homosexuality, I oppose same-sex marriages because I think it’s such a ridiculous notion, but I tend to come down on the side of those who think what people choose to do in their bedrooms is their own business, but only if they extend that same tolerance to what others do in their bakeries.

So long as there are plenty of bakers, florists and photographers, willing to service same-sex weddings, homosexuals have no business trying to compel those who don’t wish to participate. In fact, I would arrest those who seek out religious Christians for the sole purpose of putting them out of business. So long as we’re going to have hate crimes on the books, this should be treated as one.

I realize that homosexuals, bi-sexuals and transgenders, carry a board-sized chip on their shoulders, ready to take offense if anyone even looks at them cross-eyed, but I can’t help sometimes longing for the good old days when the psychiatric profession agreed that such conditions were manifestations of mental disorders.

It figures that the terminally confused community of sexual misfits would take umbrage at therapists who try to “cure” those who desire a cure.

So long as nobody is forced to be cured, I’d say it’s none of their beeswax.

They remind me of those moronic activists who railed at the parents of deaf and blind children who sought out surgeons to cure their kids of their handicaps.

The loons regarded it as an insult to themselves that anyone would think that having all six senses was preferable to having only four or five.

⦿  Kim Jong-un replaced three of his hardline advisors, possibly as a sign of good faith prior to the Singapore summit. I can only imagine how envious Trump must have been, imagining how delicious it would be to make clown-Schumer, Pulosi, scumbag-Durbin and mad-Maxine Waters, disappear with the use of his pen or his phone.

⦿  While promoting a novel he is pretending to have co-written, liar-Bill Clinton is facing tougher questions than he ever faced as president. Asked how he felt at the time of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, he said: “I felt terrible at the time.”


Not a very chivalrous comment. If he felt that lousy, isn’t that a slam at his paramour? Are we supposed to believe that it was a charitable act on his part, a pity shtoop? What a guy! A regular Albert Schweitzer!

He went on to suggest that even as far back as when he was the governor of Arkansas, he was always a champion of women: “I had a lot of women in my office.” Does this guy even listen to himself?

Things didn’t improve when he added: “I passed a sexual harassment bill as governor.” One could hardly help thinking: “But, usually, when such bills are passed, they’re intended to prevent sexual harassment, not encourage it.”

⦿  When I heard that my home state is passing a tough new mandatory water rationing bill that will restrict water use to 55 gallons-a-day per person by 2022 and 50 gallons by 2030, I almost plotzed. Just for purposes of enlightenment, an 8-minute shower uses about 17 gallons of water, a load of laundry up to 40 gallons.

As usual, I’m trying to look on the bright side. Apparently, raising our state taxes to the highest in the nation and making us pay roughly $1.50 more for a gallon of gas than everyone else hasn’t been enough to wake up the electorate. Perhaps cutting off our water supply, forcing us to decide if we want clean bodies or clean clothes, will finally do the trick.

⦿ I’d like to close with something that Brit Hume, who often provides a touch of much-needed Middle American wisdom to the general discussion at Fox, said to Bret Baier the other evening: “Everyone you know is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Be kind.”

ALERT ALERT

Hillary Clinton Was Not Formally Under
FBI Investigation At Any Time In 2015-2016

On Tuesday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified in a joint Congressional hearing to the House Oversight and House Judiciary panels about his review of the FBI’s (mis)handling of the Clinton email investigation.

House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) came out swinging Tuesday in a a joint hearing held by the House Oversight and House Judiciary Committees.

Gowdy ripped into Comey in his opening statement, stating, “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.”

Investigative journalist Paul Sperry reported Horowitz dropped a bombshell in his testimony.

Horowitz revealed the FBI never named a target or even a subject in the Clinton email probe!

Sperry tweeted: BREAKING: IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. “Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time,” adding this was “surprising” for a crim probe

So neither Hillary nor her top aides were formally under investigation by the FBI at any time in 2015-2016, tweeted Sperry.

BREAKING: Horowitz revealed that Hillary was never really under formal investigation, never listed by FBI as a "subject" of investigation.

President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton reacted to this bombshell bias from the FBI.

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

.@RealDonaldTrump is a subject, but Hillary Clinton was never a "subject." Outrageous. Shut the Strzok-Page-Comey-McCabe-Lynch-Yates-Glenn Simpson-Steele-Brennan-Fusion GPS-Muller special counsel "stop @realDonaldTrump" investigation down.

tigation’ into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server was a complete sham.

No subjects were named, immunity was handed out like candy and Hillary was exonerated before witnesses were interviewed, including Hillary Clinton herself.

Hillary Clinton’s ‘interview’ with the FBI wasn’t even under oath.

Even more egregious, Hillary discussed pregnancy and babies during the majority of the 2.5 hour FBI interview because one of her lawyers was pregnant at the time.

Inspector General Horowitz also testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Targeting Of Tea Party Groups
John McCain’s Staff Director Urged Lois Lerner
And IRS To Engage In “Financially Ruinous”

Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch obtained IRS documents Thursday revealing backstabber Senator John McCain’s former staff director urged the IRS, including the corrupt Lois Lerner to engage in “financially ruinous” targeting of conservative Tea Party groups.

And they did.

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

  • Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
  • At least 5 pro-Israel groups
  • Constitutional groups
  • Groups that criticized Obama administration
  • At least two pro-life groups
  • An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor
  • A 180 year-old Baptist paper
  • A Texas voting-rights group
  • A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
  • Conservative activists and businesses
  • At least one conservative Hispanic group
  • IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
  • And… 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were
  • Conservative

Now this…

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.

The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups.

Lerner and other IRS officials met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.”

In the full notes of an April 30 meeting, McCain’s high-ranking staffer Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, “Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.” In response, Lerner responded that “it is her job to oversee it all:”

Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time. Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely. Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints. Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton had this to say about the newly obtained IRS documents showing more proof the agency was weaponized under Obama:

“The Obama IRS scandal is bipartisan – McCain and Democrats who wanted to regulate political speech lost at the Supreme Court, so they sought to use the IRS to harass innocent Americans. The Obama IRS scandal is not over – as Judicial Watch continues to uncover smoking gun documents that raise questions about how the Obama administration weaponized the IRS, the FEC, FBI, and DOJ to target the First Amendment rights of Americans.”
