Ocasio-Cortez thinks New York can now spend the $3 billion in tax breaks Amazon won’t be getting on something else. Seriously, that was not an easy headline to write. This woman is so other-worldly ignorant, encapsulating her stupidity in a headline is almost impossible. They should use her as inspiration to make another Dumb and Dumber movie: Dumb, Dumber, and Dumberest.

Rosenstein to Leave Justice Department Next Friday, Sources Say. Yes we know it’s another “sources” deal but if true it’s about time. McCabe may have ratted some good stuff. We’ll see this Sunday.

Following the Senate confirmation of William P. Barr to be Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is planning to exit the Department of Justice next Friday, according to three DOJ officials who are familiar with his plans and ongoing conversations inside the department.

Rosenstein, 54, initially planned to stay at the Department of Justice for several weeks to ensure a smooth transition for his successor,
Jeffrey Rosen, however, he is quietly working to exit the DOJ next Friday after a scathing interview was given to “60 Minutes” by former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Mr. McCabe, in an interview scheduled to air on Sunday, said that Mr. Rosenstein considered invoking the 25th amendment to oust President Trump in addition to possibly recording the commander-in-chief, directly contradicting a forceful denial issued months earlier by Rosenstein.

Note: At this point this is all still alleged. Right after we put it up Chicago PD said they were still investigating so we pulled it. We decided to put it back up with the caveat that at this point no one appears to know what’s going in with this including Rob Elgas.

Sources: Jussie Smollett staged attack with help of others, allegedly being written off ‘Empire.’ So much for two white dudes in red MAGA hats walking around Chicago on a -25 degree night carrying a rope.

UPDATE: We wish this guy would make his mind up.

Willam Barr confirmed as attorney general. Now we can see what happens. We hope his alleged anti-gun tendencies don’t help FUBAR the 2nd Amendment.

Teacher shot after Baltimore school board votes against arming school security officers Don’t say everyone didn’t tell you tools this would happen, or worse.

A couple of weeks ago, the Baltimore school board voted to disapprove of arming school security guards. The vote was in response to a proposed state law that would have allowed for the arming of school resource officers.

Last Friday, a special education assistant at a Baltimore school was shot and wounded when confronting an armed intruder at the school.

Texas Town’s Environmental Narcissism. Go full green and win stupid prizes. We can’t wait for the New Green Deal.

Political leaders in a college town in central Texas won wide praise from former Vice President Al Gore and the larger Green Movement when they decided to go “100 percent renewable” seven years ago. Now, however, they are on the defensive over electricity costs that have their residents paying more than $1,000 per household in higher electricity charges over the last four years.

That’s right – $1,219 per household in higher electricity costs for the 71,000 residents of Georgetown, Texas, all thanks to the decision of its Republican mayor, Dale Ross, to launch a bold plan to shift the city’s municipal utility to 100 percent renewable power in 2012 when he was on the city council.

Amazon Drops Bid For New York. Governor Fredo has been whining about the NY wealthy moving to Florida and dropping his tax money. Were we Amazon we’d move to Florida and tell Governor Fredo to shove it.

New York lawmakers, including progressive superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocaiso-Cortez (D), for months  have been drumming up resistance to Amazon’s decision to bring half of its second headquarters to Queens.

McCabe Confirms Talks Held at Justice Dept. About Removing Trump. Referring to it as the Justice Department anymore is a joke.

Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is confirming for the first time publicly that there were high-level discussions at the Justice Department about recruiting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office in the aftermath of former FBI Director James Comey’s firing.

Washington Post fact-checker admits Ocasio-Cortez was lying, but… gives her zero Pinocchios. Compare that to when they admitted Trump was telling the truth but gave him a Pinocchio anyway.

9th Circuit sides with Trump on environmental waivers for border wall. Yes, THAT 9th Circuit.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled for the Trump administration Monday in a case challenging its use of waivers to bypass environmental regulations in constructing parts of the border wall.

The state of California and several environmental groups sued President Donald Trump and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in September 2017 to stop construction of a border wall prototype and ongoing repairs to 14 miles of an existing barrier in San Diego.

Court Denies Injunction in EPIC Census Privacy Suit. This is indeed ‘epic.’ As of now they can basically ask if you’re illegal. This could reduce the number of seats the Democrats have in the House and the number of Electoral College votes, not to mention reducing Federal funds states like California blow on illegal aliens. No doubt this will go to a higher court. Oh, by the way elections have consequences, this judge is a Trump appointee.

A federal court has denied EPIC’s motion for a preliminary injunction and refused to block the Census Bureau from collecting citizenship information via the 2020 Census.

John Roberts joins liberal justices as Supreme Court blocks Louisiana abortion clinic law. We often wonder what Deep State has on this guy. He doesn’t appear to be very conservative. We also wonder how Justice Bader voted? She’s alive? In a coma? DOA?

Panera Bread tries socialism. Fails. They opened five experimental restaurants where food was offered at a “suggested donation” price. The restaurants did not do well. They especially did not do well in liberal Portland, Oregon, where the restaurant was full of homeless people and students who didn’t pay anything, let alone the “suggested donation.” Gosh, who could’ve seen that happening?

Elizabeth Warren registered with Texas Sate Bar as “American Indian…” in 1986. That’s nine years before she became a Harvard professor, where she has never actually admitted personally claiming to be Native American in order to advance her career. The Texas Bar registration is in her own handwriting and signed by her in blue ink pen.

THIRD in line for Virginia governorship ALSO wore blackface. This is getting ridiculous. They need to just skip all the Democrats in the line of succession and find a Republican for the governor’s office, or just quit. Maybe Virginia should just merge into neighboring states and forget about the whole thing.
