Beautiful dogs, but on that first photo of the Afghan Hound with the nice scarf....First thing that popped to mind was, what district does it represent?

Dog shows and breed standards have ruined some breeds. Whose idea was it to that German Shephards their hind quarters practically drag the ground was a good thing?

I see that Bourbon the whippet defeated Whiskey the whippet in their group. And I couldn´t stop thinking of how much vacking I´d have to do if I owned one of the Yorkies or Poms.

We watched some of the agility contest on Sunday, it was fun.

And some of the dogs were just referred to as "all-American dogs," meaning mutts. We were very glad to see one of them win his division.

Just a big brown dog named Harley.

And, #2, agreed. My dad told me collies & setters used to be smart, but the breeders decided they should have these super-narrow heads, and now they´re stupid. No room for brains.

Yep, I also have a 100# rescue, a 70# Lab and a ´whatever´ mix that was dumped here last year. All three look like ´real dogs´.

Since we’re on the topic of dogs, I’m sure most of you heard PDT asking whether he should get a dog at last night’s rally. He thinks it would look phony because someone said it’s good politically.

I think he should get a big ol’ Great Dane! To me, that seems like a perfect dog breed for our alpha male president.

#2, I agree 100%.

IMHO, a dog should have have to have an "A" rating for what it was bred to do* before being in a show like Westminster.

* Field trials, herding, etc. Toy breeds would have to be certified for service like hospital visits.

I thoroughly enjoy the Westminster Dog Show and look forward to it every year. My precious Cavalier King Charles lays in front of the TV both nights to watch - never moves - except his eyes grow wide and ears go up and down as the dogs run the ring. He´s as much fun to watch as the Show.

There were some incredibly beautiful dogs last night. However, the blonde young lady with the microphone running commentary annoyed me to no end. I miss David Frei and Joe Garagiola. They were a great team.

I would never take one of my four-legged "children" to Westminster. We visited the show once, in the `80s and were appalled at the conditions the dogs were forced to endure by being "benched."
They are chained in a plywood enclosure in which they are barely able to turn around and the gawkers are free to "visit" them all day.
Sure, the officials try to keep people from picking at the dogs, but it doesn´t always work. Caring owners/handlers spend much of their time sitting with their dogs.
The best part of our experience was a picnic, waaay up in the seating area.
Nope, "benched" shows are not happy places for the dogs.

As I walked around Manhattan Sunday afternoon, it seemed every other person I passed had a dog with them. It wasn´t until last night when I was back home in Virginia that I remembered this is Westminster week. It´s been several years since I last attended this show. It´s actually an all-day affair - breed judging during the day and group in the evening. It´s a lot of fun to attend. If you ever get the chance, go. Disappointed the poodles all got shut out last night.

And now it’s time for the rest of the story about crooked G-man Andrew McCabe. This is important as we prepare for a weekend of unctuous oohing and ahhing in the alt-left media over the fired FBI director. Sunday night he’ll be treated as a conquering hero on “60 Minutes,” that perennial destination for dodgy Democrats down through the decades. He’ll be portrayed as the greatest lawman since Wyatt Earp, because after becoming the head fed in May 2017 he immediately opened the phony-baloney Russia “investigation” of President Trump. “I was very concerned that I was able

The other day all the major new outlets were covering a story about Elizabeth Warren saying on the campaign trail in Iowa that Donald Trump “might not even be a free person” but rather in jail at the time of the 2020 Presidential election. Call this phenomenon the “hypothetical news.” Donald Trump might launch a preemptive nuclear attack on North Korea. Donald Trump might withdraw from NATO. Donald Trump might fire his Chief of Staff. Donald Trump might be crazy. More subtle examples of hypothetical news are: there is “widespread concern on Wall Street” that Donald Trump might fire

On Tuesday’s show this week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed that he had tried to take the Russian “collusion” accusations and the launch of subsequent investigations seriously for about three months. It is Carlson’s job as a journalist to keep an open mind for as long as possible when such a serious allegation has been made. He apparently kept that open mind for three months, until the ridiculousness of it all could not be ignored. A majority of the left, the Democrats, and their “mainstream” media arm have pounded the spurious collusion narrative for over two years.

   

 



 
Independent Investigation Shows Covington Boys
Told the Truth, Confirms Nathan Phillips
is a Liar Amplified by the Media

The results of an independent investigation into the January 18, 2019 Lincoln Memorial confrontation between leftist activist Nathan Phillips, black supremacist group the Black Hebrew Israelites and students from Covington Catholic High School were released Wednesday by Greater Cincinatti Investigation, Inc. The report, which is four pages long, shows what everyone could have known initially if the time was taken to reach for context: Covington students didn´t use a single racial slur against either Phillips or the Black Hebrew Israelites and they didn´t instigate the confrontation. In fact, it was the opposite.

A teaching moment from Virginia Democrats:

If there were a state that could educate Americans on politics, and what happens when virtue smacks up against raw political power, you’d have to say it’s Virginia. Illinois is broken. People flee Illinois for the same reason they flee New York: taxes. But they don’t run from Virginia. They gravitate to Northern Virginia, home to some of the wealthiest counties in the country, and all those rich lawyers and lobbyists and journos and politicos and equestrians work in Washington. These are the rulers and the palace guards, the gatekeepers and peddlers of influence. In another age, another place,

FEC Still Refuses To Investigate Alleged $84
Million Clinton Campaign Money Laundering
The Federalist, by Margot Cleveland    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 2/14/2019 5:18:52     Post Reply
Tuesday evening the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) filed a motion in a D.C. federal court seeking to supplement the complaint it had filed against the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in April 2018. In its original complaint, the CDP alleged that the agency responsible for enforcing campaign-finance law failed to act on an administrative complaint the CDP had filed with the FEC. That complaint charged that, during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats illegally funneled approximately $84 million through the Hillary Victory Fund to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which then illegally coordinated with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

“The average tax refund is down about $170 compared to last year. Let’s call the President’s tax cut what it is: a middle-class tax hike to line the pockets of already wealthy corporations and the 1%.” — Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), in a tweet, Feb. 11, 2019 Harris, who is running for president in 2020, attacked President Trump’s tax law after the Internal Revenue Service reported that preliminary data shows that the average tax refund check is down 8 percent ($170) this year compared with last year. Boy, talk about a non sequitur that turns out to be nonsensical and misleading.

Michael Avenatti agreed Wednesday to give up financial control of his law firm to settle a dispute with a former partner who claimed the celebrity lawyer hid millions in order to fund his lavish lifestyle and avoid having to pay a $10 million judgment. Jason Frank, a former partner at Eagan Avenatti, accused Avenatti in a court filing of spending extravagantly: $13,000 in rent for his Los Angeles apartment; a $3,640 payment on his Ferrari; $150,000 for his coffee company; $53,600 on his ex-wife; and $232,875 for his auto racing team, The Los Angeles Times reported.

TAMPA — At a time when millions of Americans are bemoaning their smaller-than-expected tax refunds, consider this: Ramon Christopher Blanchett of Tampa once got a refund of $980,000. On a reported income of $18,497. As with most things involving the IRS, this story does not end happily, at least for Blanchett, 29. But it does display a degree of ingenuity, as outlined in a federal forfeiture complaint recently filed in U.S. District Court in Tampa:In February 2017, Blanchett electronically submitted a self-prepared income tax return listing his occupation as "free-lancer. ´´ He had W-2 forms from a Tampa nursing home

There have been reports recently that the Senate Intelligence Committee, the panel conducting the bipartisan flagship congressional investigation of the Trump-Russia affair, has not found evidence to conclude that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to fix the 2016 election. "If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don´t have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia," the committee´s chairman, Republican Sen. Richard Burr, told CBS last week. Pressed on his statement a few days later, Burr said, "The only thing I´ve addressed

Responding to the president’s announcement that he will declare a national emergency related to the U.S. southern border, Pelosi maintained that “Democratic presidents can declare emergencies as well.

In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers.

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, my first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI, I sat down with senior staff involved in the Russia case—the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. As the meeting began, my secretary relayed a message that the White House was calling. The president himself was on the line. I had spoken with him the night before, in the Oval Office, when he told me he had fired James Comey. A call like this was highly unusual. Presidents do not, typically, call FBI directors.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep.

Move over, Speaker Pelosi, and make room for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill deBlasio as Democrats waking up to the disaster the rise of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is inflicting on the Democratic Party. She is no longer just a potential threat to their schemes and operating principles, she has taken a wrecking ball to them. Trust me: they desperately want to be rid of her but, due to her media presence and popularity with the young and ignorant, cannot visibly stick the shiv in her back.
