Jimmy Kimmel Was Fed Talking Points By Chuck Schumer

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week, you’ve noticed the revived fight by the GOP to repeal and replace Obamacare.
The day after President Trump addressed the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer was speaking at a Gates Foundation’s Goalkeepers event.
He said, “Those of you who live in countries that already have universal health care are trying to figure out what’s the controversy here.  People are trying to undo that progress for the 50th or 60th time. It’s aggravating and all of this being done without any demonstrable economic or actuarial or common-sense rationale.  It frustrates.  It’s certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on our constituents.”
Now you’re a smart cookie.  That last sentence is crucial: “It’s certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on constituents.”
That’s where late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel comes in.  His nightly monologues were spent condemning Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), authors of the Graham-Cassidy Bill which seeks to do away with the onerous Obamacare legislation.
The three episodes in which Kimmel tore apart both Cassidy—who had previously insisted that any health care bill pass a so-called “Jimmy Kimmel test”—and the bill’s specifics incited public and political opposition to the legislation.
Hence former president Obama’s snide comment about having to “mobilize” every couple of months plays into Kimmel’s role in all this.
Thanks to Lachlan Markay and others at The Daily Beast we are now learning that behind the scenes, the ABC star was getting an assist. Kimmel and his team were in touch with health care officials, charities and advocacy groups and with the office of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer who, according to a source familiar with their conversations, “provided technical guidance and info about the bill, as well as stats from various think tanks and experts on the effects of Graham-Cassidy.”
His public condemnation was biting and garnered plenty of media attention. No one has called him out on using his sick child as a prop for his Obamacare sycophancy.
“This guy, Bill Cassidy, just lied right to my face,” Kimmel said in his first show, airing a clip of his May interview with the senator. “Stop using my name,” he said to Cassidy.
Kimmel revisited the subject the next night, going after Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade for questioning why he was weighing in on health care at all.
“I don’t get anything out of this, Brian, you phony little creep. Oh, I’ll pound you when I see you. That is my blurb—that would be my blurb for your next book: ‘Brian Kilmeade is a phony little creep.’”
The following night, Kimmel went at it again, this time singling out President Donald Trump. “I guarantee he doesn’t know anything about this Graham-Cassidy bill,” he said of the president. “He doesn’t know the difference between Medicare and Medicaid. He barely knows the difference between Melania and Ivanka!”

Alabama Crimson Tide Vs Vanderbilt Commodores: Going Down With The Ship

Some guy named Chris Low who covers college football for ESPN tweeted last Saturday, “Just heard down below at Vanderbilt Stadium chants of ‘We Want Bama.’”
Interviewed after their 14-7 upset victory over No. 18 K State, Vandy defensive lineman Nifae Laelao told a reporter for WSMV, a local TV station in Nashville, “We expected to get this. When you come to our house we show you how to play some SEC ball…Alabama you’re next.”
Famous last words there Nifae.  You aren’t the first cocky jock whose mouth wrote a check his ass can’t cash.  Just ask the Washington Huskies.  For weeks after the top four teams were announced for last year’s College Football Playoff semifinal the Huskies howled, “We want Bama!”  They were embarrassed 24-7.
The game which airs on CBS at 3:30PM ET will be the Tide’s first trip to Vanderbilt since Nick Saban took over as head coach for Alabama in 2007.  Their last meeting was in Tuscaloosa in 2011 resulting in a loss to the Crimson Tide 34-0.
I have never followed Vandy football.  Why should I? Their football program has always been the SEC’s doormat. The win against the Wildcats last Saturday was its first against a ranked non-conference opponent since 1946.  Well, la-dee-freakin’-da.
I can tell you this much; Alabama owns the series against the ‘Dores.  Of the 83 games the Commodores have played against Bama, Vanderbilt has lost 61 of them.  Furthermore, Vandy’s record in 2013 was 9-4.  In 2014, it was 3-9.  In 2015, their record was 4-8 and last year it was 6-7.  Am I supposed to be impressed?  Hell nah.
Now I understand Vandy fans are all jacked up after beating Middle Tennessee, Alabama A&M and K State, but your opponent on Saturday is a beast.  Bama QB Jalen Hurts was 12 for 17 for 248 yards and 2 TDs.  He also rushed 11 times for a total of 103 yards resulting in a touchdown.  Vandy QB Kyle Shurmur was 14 for 23 for 205 yards and one TD.
ESPN’s Matchup Predictor gives the Tide a 90.7% chance of making the ‘Dores walk the plank and silencing “The Admiral”, that godforsaken horn they love to crank up when Vandy scores.

The Turn Of The Screw

According to a published report by Reuters, Chinese banks received a document from U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Monday.  One week earlier, the United Nations Security Council approved a new resolution against Pyongyang; the ninth set of sanctions.
The contents of the document are as yet unknown but are suspected to include economic sanctions on China cutting off Beijing’s access to the U.S. financial system.
Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Ed Royce (R-CA) said, “We need to use every ounce of leverage…to put maximum pressure on this rogue regime,” adding that “time is running out.” Royce also called on Washington to target major Chinese banks, including the Agricultural Bank of China and the China Merchants Bank for dealing with Pyongyang.
Royce also said, “It’s been a long, long time of waiting for China to comply with the sanctions that we pass and, frankly, with the sanctions that the United Nations passed.” 
The committee chair went on to say the U.S. could give Chinese banks and companies “a choice between doing business with North Korea or the United States.” He added that the U.S. should also “go after banks and companies in other countries that do business with North Korea the same way.”
After four days of high-level meetings between the United States and several southeast Asian countries, President Trump announced at a luncheon with South Korea’s Moon Jae-In and Japan’s Shinzo Abe that China’s Central Bank instructed its financial institutions to stop doing business with North Korea, an action that is certain to have devastating financial consequences for the rogue regime.
As President Trump announced his newest executive order on Thursday he praised China’s president Xi Jinping for the “very bold move.”  “Our new executive order will cut off sources of revenue that fund North Korea’s efforts to develop the deadliest weapons known to humankind,” Trump said. He added that the U.S. seeks the “complete denuclearization of North Korea.”
Han Tae Song, Pyongyang's ambassador to the United Nations, was scheduled to address the United Nations General Assembly on Friday but has delayed that speech.  No doubt the DPRK has been left thoroughly discombobulated over the forces being amassed against them and are feverishly referring to a thesaurus to top yesterday’s insult of comparing President Trump to a “barking dog”.

Hillary Terrified Of The Way Someone Sits

If you don’t watch “The Late Show” on CBS you missed a news nugget.
On Tuesday night Hillary appeared with Stephen Colbert and, wonder of wonders, she took her turn in the spotlight to criticize the manner in which Russian President Vladimir Putin sits. He has a habit of “manspreading”. 
Misogyny and sexism are just two of a myriad of reasons Granny Clinton blames for her stunning election loss.  Honestly, she’s on a quest to prove discrimination where none exists.  Hillary lost because of who she is─a habitual, incorrigible liar.
At least the hag just got “manspreading” from Putin.  German Chancellor Angela Merkel not only got the “manspreading” shtick but also had to endure Putin allowing his female Labrador “Connie” in the room.  He reportedly smirked as the dog approached Merkel knowing she has a fear of dogs ever since being attacked by one.
I’ll tell you what terrifies me:  Hillary’s “fatspreading”.

The Architect Of Her Fall

“You never see the entire script of political theater until long after the last scene has been acted out.”
Ten months after the 2016 election, The Ice Cube In Heels is viewed favorably by just 36 percent of Americans.  What’s more, only 25 percent and less than half of Democrats believe she was the Democrat Party’s best choice to be the presidential nominee.
Ten days ago, “Gam Gam” began her “What Happened” book tour─a retelling of her desperately uninspiring campaign.
Hillary isn’t merely in a state of denial; politically speaking she is dead but she doesn’t know it. There is no demand for her to run again. She has been handed her political retirement papers by the American people.
She has no idea why Americans think “Clintonian” is another way of saying “dishonest.”

According to McClatchy DC Bureau, a federal appeals court will hear a case brought by Judicial Watch this Friday to make public draft indictments of Hillary Clinton from the Whitewater scandal in the 1990s.
Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group that files Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, wants copies of the documents that the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has declined to release. It filed a FOIA request for the documents in March 2015 and in October 2015 the group sued for the 238 pages of responsive records.
According to Judicial Watch: “The National Archives argues that the documents should be kept secret, citing grand jury secrecy and Clinton’s personal privacy.”
But Judicial Watch says that because so much about the Whitewater case has already been made public, “there is no secrecy or privacy left to protect.”
The documents in question are alleged drafts of indictments written by Hickman Ewing, the chief deputy of Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel appointed to investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton’s alleged involvement in fraudulent real estate dealings. Although others were sentenced for their role in the matter, neither Clinton was ever prosecuted.
Ewing told investigators he drafted the indictments in April 1995. According to Judicial Watch, the documents pertain to allegations that Hillary Clinton provided false information and withheld information from those investigating Whitewater.
The government is sitting on at least 12 versions of the draft indictment of Mrs. Clinton, including one “listing overt acts.” From the public record, we know that the Whitewater case centered around whether Mrs. Clinton, while First Lady, lied to federal investigators about her role in the failed $200,000 dirt road real estate deal with a corrupt Arkansas savings and loan, Madison Guaranty and the Resolution Trust Corporation that cost taxpayers $65 million. Additionally, there were charges of bribery, corruption, cover-ups, suicide and murder.
James B. McDougal, who referred to himself as “Bill Clinton’s Brutus”, was a cooperating witness in the Whitewater investigation.  His accounts of business dealings with Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton haunted them.  When McDougal died in prison in Fort Worth and with the suicide of Vince Foster four years earlier, they must have felt confident they had alluded the long arm of the law.  Not so fast.
Judicial Watch provided the court with a detailed list of grand jury and non-grand jury material that had already been made public. If there ever was a valid claim to grand jury secrecy in this closely scrutinized case, it is long gone.

American Patience Is Not Infinite

You could see the delegates in the great hall of the United Nations flapping their gums as they leaned in to the person seated next to them as they expressed their contempt for President Trump’s long-standing habit of demeaning enemies with disparaging nicknames.
The assembled parasitic, anti-American, left-wing poster children for bureaucratic corruption whispered their contempt for the truth.  Just two days before the 72nd Session of the General Assembly the President tweeted:
If North Korea’s maniacal Kim Jong Un continues his nuclear blackmail─threatening to “envelop” Guam with missiles and launching a “nuclear counterattack the U.S. cannot cope with”─President Trump warned the tin pot dictator the United States “will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.  Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime.”
Former Ambassador to the U.N., John Bolton declared, “This was the best speech of the Trump presidency, in my view. I think it’s as clear and direct as it’s possible to be. I think it’s safe to say in the entire history of the United Nations, there has never been a more straightforward criticism of the behavior, the unacceptable behavior of other member states. There are a lot of people in the U.N. who have never heard anything like that from an American president.”
President Trump has done a great service for the civilized world through his impassioned defense of national sovereignty, national security and prosperity.
UPDATE:  At 5:50 PM today, Yonhap News Service, the mouthpiece of the North Korean government, tweeted:

President Trump Stumps The UN

Say what you will, President Trump shock rocked the world in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly. And he did it without a teleprompter.
Contrary to his mealy-mouthed predecessors, the President called a spade an entrenchment tool and let the world know that he will defend America's interests and that the free ride is over. The UN must clean up its act. Trump also singled out three nations whose activities are of special concern to America.
First, North Korea:
"The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime."
This is not new. For most of his term in office, President Trump has been warning North Korea's Insane Boy Clown For Life that he is walking on a razor's edge. What is new is that the UN's General Assembly was treated to the harsh clanging of an American President who has brass ones.
Second on Trump's "List of Nations I Want To Bitch Slap" was Iran:
"The Iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy. It has turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos." 
America owes Iran a severe ass kicking. The terrorists who run the remains of the Persian Empire have been killing Americans for decades without a single cruise missile to remind them that Uncle Sam's beard is not a trapeze. I still remember 241 Marines murdered in their barracks and the US embassy in Beirut destroyed under Reagan's watch.
There's been a shit ton of interest accruing just for these two incidents much less the chaos and death the Iranian government have abetted since then. It's way past time for the US to collect on this debt.
Third, our once friendly neighbor to the south, Venezuela:
"The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure."
Boom chica wow wow. That left a mark on Lenin's ass in Hell. The people of Venezuela are suffering terribly and there is only one reason why their distress is so great…their government. Thank you, Lord Jesus for delivering us from Hillary Chavez.  
More here.
Of course the libs are foaming at the mouth and chasing their tails after listening to the President's UN speech, as expected. What I find really disturbing is Chief of Staff John Kelly's reaction while his boss was delivering the message.
Kelly needs to go. If this idiot cannot keep a poker face while his President is addressing the world he should get a paper route to supplement his Army pension. 
Get rid of Kelly Mr. President.

Rare Black Squirrel Sighted

Since Curmudeon's palatial estate seems to be squirrel central, I pass along this bit of Left Coast squirrel news:

I spotted a black squirrel on the fence in my back yard today. I was doing a little pool maintenance when he skittered over the fence, saw me and froze. We just stared at each other for a while, then he ran away. According to wiki, you find them mostly in the Northeast, Midwest, parts of Canada and the UK.

Looked kinda like this.
The black fur color can occur naturally as a mutation in populations of gray squirrels, but it is rare.
Since there don't appear to be any black squirrel populations within, say 2-3,000 miles of here, I'm going with "mutation". 

Great. I've got a mutant squirrel in my back yard. Possibly a ninja...

The White House Moved To LA Last Night

You may as well bring a big pan of lasagna or a bundt cake to the Emmy Awards as a house warming gift; President Trump has taken up permanent residence inside their heads.
Los Angeles (AFP) - Television's glittering Emmys placed politics front and center on Sunday, lavishing "The Handmaid's Tale" with awards for its bleak portrait of an authoritarian America.

The glitzy ceremony in downtown Los Angeles -- the first under the administration of President Donald Trump -- was widely expected to have a strongly political flavor, and host Stephen Colbert set the tone in his opening monologue.
Stephen took a break from spraying graffiti on the sides of subway cars in order to host the awards.
"However you feel about the president, and you do feel about the president, you can't deny that every show was influenced by Donald Trump in some way," he said.
First Lady Melania will have her staff sweep out the dust liberals, spray for Screen Actors Guild cockroaches and toss out the porn before settling in for a major remodeling effort.

The news article goes on to list the programs that received Emmy awards but *yawn* who cares...
