Good Friday morning.
Here is what's on the president's agenda today:
- The president participates in the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Act signing ceremony
- President Trump presents the Medal of Freedom
- The president meets with the administrator of the Small Business Administration
Count 'em til they turn blue...in the face
The counting continues in Florida and elsewhere. Most of the time, these recounts end up with the Democrats taking the lead. Go figure. Mimi Walters (R) of California just lost her seat in Orange County. Meanwhile, Mia Love (R) in Utah is gaining some ground, although she is still losing.
I don't even know what is going on in Florida. It's such a hot mess.
Missed it by *this* much
Broward County missed the deadline for its recount. What kind of idiots are running the Broward County voting system? YOU HAVE ONE JOB.
The top election official in Florida's heavily Democratic Broward County said late Thursday that the county had uploaded the results of its recount two minutes after the state’s 3 p.m. deadline – making its machine recount tally void. Instead, the county's results from last Tuesday’s election will stand until manual recount totals in the state's closely contested Senate race come in Sunday at noon.
Could you do your job this incompetently and not be fired?!?!
“We uploaded to the state two minutes late so the state has chosen not to use our machine recount results,” Broward election official Joseph D’Alessandro said in the surprise announcement. “They are going to use our first unofficial results as our second unofficial results.”
New bratty millennial progressive congresspeople about to get a rude awakening
I don't know if these sniveling, entitled brats think they are going to scoot into Congress and take power away from dusty antiques like Nanny Pelosi, but if you come at the queen, you better kill zer because you are going to end up on the House Toilet Paper Committee. That's right, those old white people control who gets on the committees and you whippersnappers aren't going to get squat. You aren't going to get anything done or get your hyphenated name on any legislation. You will be controlled unless you get in line.
A fight broke out in a closed-door meeting of House Democrats over climate change as a powerful veteran lawmaker fought with freshman star Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other members-elect over the creation of a special panel for the issue.
New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone, incoming chairman of the powerful Energy and Commerce Committee — backed by a number of other committee members — slammed the creation of the new climate panel, according to multiple sources in the room. Pallone argued that his committee and other existing panels within the House could take on the issue aggressively.
But Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Rep.-elect Joe Neguse (Colo.) and some of the other progressive incoming lawmakers fought back, saying they ran on the issue and needed to do it. Ocasio-Cortez earlier this week pushed for a “Green New Deal” as she backed more than 200 young protesters at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s office.
LOL. Yeah, good luck fighting the power structure. It's so refreshing to watch this happen on the left after seeing it happen so many times on the right. Ten bucks Ocasio-Cortez ends up on the Ag. Committee. Her constituents would just love that.
Your daily WTF:
Historical picture of the day:
This woman is awful After Winning Election, Democrat Ilhan Omar Now Says She ‘Supports BDS Movement’
Why is the KKK always in the news now? A student dressed up as a KKK member for class presentation — and the teacher got suspended
And that's all I've got, now go beat back the angry mob!
I wish I could say this was a photoshop, but it's quite real:
Merry Christmas from Francis's church.
A real profile in courage, this Democrat:
Oregon's Republican secretary of state is investigating why a left-wing group turned in nearly 100 ballots the day after the Nov. 6 election deadline.
Becca Uherbelau, executive director of Our Oregon, and Steve Ungar, the group's counsel, have until Wednesday to explain what happened.
Defend Oregon, a political action committee affiliated with Our Oregon, apparently gathered the ballots in an aggressive and legal get-out-the-vote effort. Canvassers went door to door asking residents if they needed or wanted assistance delivering their ballots.
Scott said in his letter to the state that Defend Oregon handed in other boxes of ballots in time to be counted. The one box had apparently been overlooked until Wednesday.
Our Oregon, a union-financed non-profit, also sent canvassers throughout the state to tell Oregonians how to vote on a number of statewide issues: "'Yes' to re-elect Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, 'yes' on an affordable housing bond initiative, and 'no' on four conservative ballot initiatives."
