All this WINNING may have finally run its course. – President Donald Trump surrendered on the horrific, 5,600 page omnibus spending bill Sunday evening. I cover that story, and its larger implications, in full in a separate piece this morning.
Little Lindsey’s all excited, though. – South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, who no doubt counseled the President to wave the white flag, was all aglow with the outcome:
Congress will vote on additional stimulus checks and repealing Section 230 — all wins for the American people.
Well done Mr. President!
— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) December 28, 2020
Oh, they’re going to “vote” on additional stimulus checks and repeal of Section 230. Guess which one will be approved and which one will miserably fail?
This is the best of all worlds for a McCain-style senate RINO: You get to bust the budget yet again and brag to constituents about how much money you got for them and do it all with the seal of approval from a president of your own party. As a bonus, you then get to vote “yes” on Section 230 repeal, knowing all the while that it has literally no chance of passage in either house of congress.
This is the stuff Little Lindsey dreams of.
Et tu, New York Post? – The editorial board at the New York Post has seen enough of the Trump election challenges, and published an editorial piece on Sunday urging the President to give up the ghost and focus on helping the two GOP senatorial candidates in Georgia win their runoff races.
Here’s an excerpt from that editorial:
You had every right to investigate the election. But let’s be clear: Those efforts have found nothing. To take just two examples: Your campaign paid $3 million for a recount in two Wisconsin counties, and you lost by 87 more votes. Georgia did two recounts of the state, each time affirming Biden’s win. These ballots were counted by hand, which alone debunks the claims of a Venezuelan vote-manipulating Kraken conspiracy.
Sidney Powell is a crazy person. Michael Flynn suggesting martial law is tantamount to treason. It is shameful.
Stop thinking about Jan. 6. Start thinking about Jan. 5.
This editorial from a rare media outlet that has been supportive of his presidency may have impacted President Trump’s thinking on the spending bill. Given that Mr. Trump had obviously chosen to fight over this bill as a symbol of his larger fight to reverse the clearly fraudulent results of this stolen election, his decision to surrender here likely has larger implications related to that overall effort.
If you haven’t already done so, you’d all be well-advised to begin preparing for four years of Biden and Harris.
Just to lighten the mood… – I thought this was funny, and wish it was real:

Back to reality, here is was the LAPD was doing on Sunday:
I'm not even sure where to begin with this video.@ericgarcetti defunding the LAPD by 150 million dollars and forcing them to protect his house from Protesters.

That’s right: Dozens of officers who have recently seen Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti lead the charge to defund their department to the tune of $150 million were called out to defend the despicable communist Democrat Mayor’s home from protesters.
You just could never in a million years make Democrats up if they didn’t already exist.
It’s a lone wolf! Who could’ve ever guessed? – Welp, the FBI narrative on the Nashville bombing is set, and it’s the same narrative the FBI always uses in these situations: That of the “lone wolf.” Because of course it is.
The FBI announced on Sunday that, a mere 40 hours or so after the Christmas morning bombing of downtown Nashville, it has already identified the specific RV that blew up, raided the home of its owner, found body parts at the scene from which it obtained DNA, and already processed the DNA to prove it is that of the RV owner, one Anthony Quinn Warner, a 63 year-old local. Thus, we see the very same FBI that has sat on Anthony Weiner’s laptop for more than four years now, and on Hunter Biden’s for over a year without doing a damn thing with it, supposedly “solving” a major bombing of the downtown area of one of America’s great cities in the blink of an eye. And they do it all by pushing the exact same “lone wolf” narrative they have rolled out to the public related to every domestic terrorism attack in this century.
From a story at ABC News:
FBI investigators said DNA evidence found at the scene matched Anthony Quinn Warner, who was earlier named as a person of interest.
“Anthony Warner is the man believed to be responsible for this horrible crime,” Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake said at a news conference.
Human remains were discovered amid the blast debris, and investigators worked to determine if they belonged to the RV owner. Multiple law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News the suspect was identified as Warner of Antioch, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville.
Douglas Korneski, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Memphis field office, told reporters that investigators were able to make the match quickly after they obtained DNA from Warner’s home.
Korneski said there appears to be no other suspect involved with the bombing, but the investigation is ongoing.
Authorities believe the RV was parked in front of an AT&T transmission building at 1:22 a.m. on Friday, but it remains unclear if the building was targeted. The Tennessee Highway Patrol confirmed the RV’s VIN was registered to Warner.
It is truly stunning how stupid they think we all are. Given that the American public has been lapping this crap up for two solid decades now and going right back to sleep, they’re probably right.
That is all.
