Hurricane Michael is so bad
that 18 Waffle Houses are closing

Fox News, by Staff

Waffle House restaurants don’t close unless absolutely necessary — so the shuttering of 18 Florida locations ahead of Hurricane Michael speaks volumes about the severity of the storm. “We have closed these restaurants yesterday so our employees can be safe as Hurricane Michael comes on shore,” Waffle House spokesperson Pat Warner confirmed to Fox News. “We have staged people and resources outside of the strike zone to come into the area after the storm passes. We will assess the damage and begin to reopen the restaurants as soon as it is safe to do so.”

The storm was over before the left had the chance to whine too much about it being the end of the world.

The good news is that this was a small, tight hurricane with comparatively little energy in total. Fast movement helped deprive it of the energy of the ocean as it moved inland, rapidly dissipated. News/weather media massively exaggerated the power and size.

Very damaging for a short distance, but within 12 hrs of landfall it was no longer a hurricane. Five hours after landfall, there was no rainfall at all more than 50 miles from the remains of the eye on the southern half of the storm.

Touted as "the most powerful storm ever to hit the mainland USA" by Bret Baier, which was ridiculous when he said it (repeatedly) and obvious by the very rapid breakup of the small, tight hurricane, not factual.

It is necessary to be realistic and accurate with the genuine weather threats. Exaggerating them is counterproductive, but seems to be the new normal in the Fake News world.

What’s ‘immoral’ about caring
for America’s poor first?
New York Post, by Betsy McCaughey    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/12/2018 4:18:35 AM     Post Reply
Congressional Dems are butting heads with President Trump over his demand for ­$5 billion to continue building a wall along the southern border. Likely incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vows she won’t spend one dollar for a wall and calls the idea “immoral.” Not building the wall is what’s truly immoral. Allowing poor migrants to flood across the southern border forces taxpayers to toil longer and pay more taxes to feed and house them, accommodate their children in public schools and pay for their medical care. Americans are already maxed out caring for our own needy, including the homeless

Woke 29-year-old Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly yesterday. Why? She wants him to apologize to Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson for supposedly "lying" about her to reporters.(tweet)"Cowardice." Quite a big word to use against a four-star Marine Corps general whose son was killed in Afghanistan. Wilson´s spat with Kelly came last year when she alleged President Trump disrespected a military family during a phone call. Kelly disputed her characterization and gave a briefing to the White House press corps on how the military handles casualties.

   

 

  


 
Democrats eagerly anticipate return of earmarks
as way to win over rank and file members
Washington Times, by David Sherfinski    Original Article

House Democrats are eagerly eyeing the chance to revive earmarks when they take the majority next year, saying it is Congress’s duty to siphon the money to pet projects — and hoping a return to pork-barrel spending will help keep back-benchers in line. But they’re wary of taking the leap alone and say they’re hoping Senate Republicans will join them in reversing an eight-year ban. Rep. Steny H. Hoyer, poised to become House majority leader when the new Congress convenes in January, told reporters he expects bipartisan support for a return to earmarks.

Everybody’s Wrong: Donald Trump Won
the Chuck-n-Nancy Meeting, and Here’s Why

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

Memo: FBI recommended Michael Flynn
not have lawyer present during interview,
did not warn of false statement consequences
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 12/12/2018 3:29:14 AM     Post Reply
Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who arranged the bureau´s interview with then-national security adviser Michael Flynn at the White House on Jan. 24, 2017 — the interview that ultimately led to Flynn´s guilty plea on one count of making false statements — suggested Flynn not have a lawyer present at the session, according to newly-filed court documents. In addition, FBI officials, along with the two agents who interviewed Flynn, decided specifically not to warn him that there would be penalties for making false statements because the agents wanted to ensure that Flynn was "relaxed" during the session.

Beto the loser

Beto O´Rourke is a loser. I don´t mean that in some broad sense that impugns his personal integrity or abilities. He´s clearly a very handsome, charming man with a talent for promoting himself on social media and an abundance of that most mysterious and amorphous political quality: charisma. I mean he´s a loser in the precise sense that his singular accomplishment in American public life (besides getting himself elected to a House seat in far-west Texas four years ago) has been to lose a Senate race to the stupendously unpopular Republican Ted Cruz.

It only seems like you got all 5.1 billion robocalls

"Two years from now, spam will be solved.” Bill Gates, then chairman of Microsoft Corp., assuring World Economic Forum participants in Davos, Switzerland, on Jan. 23, 2004, that software engineers would find ways to eliminate spam emails by 2006. . Bill Gates’ unfulfilled promise pops to mind with each day’s emailed offers of a deal on diodes from Taiwan, or a share of an inheritance in Ghana. Fifteen years after the software wunderkind violated what should have been Machiavelli’s rule of prophecy — Predict only that which already has occurred — the robocall menace stalks virtually every one of us.

(Snip) “It’s like a manhood thing for him,” Pelosi told the Dems of Trump’s wall obsession, according to the source. “As if manhood could ever be associated with him.”

New York Times opinion writer Jennifer Weiner told CBS This Morning hosts that holiday office parties are nothing more than another opportunity for women to be sexually harassed. In her article titled “The Torture of Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party,” Weiner described the holiday season as “the least wonderful time of the year.” “Why are we having holiday parties at all?” complained Weiner to Gayle King on Monday morning. “Wouldn’t you rather have an extra $100 in your paycheck than have to put on the Spanx, put on the heels, be social with the guy with, like, the stale coffee breath
