45 years ago this week, the Supreme Court became the Extreme Court when it ruled in the Roe v. Wade case that abortions could be legal based on the frivolous argument of “privacy.”
Side note on the government shutdown: in letting funding for the CHIP insurance program for poor children run out in favor of trying to force a DACA deal, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is trying to draw a false equivalency by accusing Republicans of “pitting children against children.”
To quote Dana Carvey’s “SNL” character, “The Church Lady,” “Well, isn’t this conveeeeeenient?”
Today is the first weekday since Friday night’s government shutdown, and pundits claim this is when it will start hurting (it was also shut just last Monday for Martin Luther King Day, and I don’t recall feeling any pain, but never mind.)
One of the most outlandish stories of last week was the news that Chelsea Manning – the transgender former Army private who spent seven years of a 35-year sentence in prison for leaking over 700,000 military documents to WikiLeaks before President Obama pardoned her – announced that she’s running for Senate in Maryland.
Here’s the ad from the Trump For President organization...
Saturday marked the second annual Women’s March, complete with profanity-laced, anti-Trump posters and anatomically-correct headgear and costumes, but aside from hating on Trump and expressing rage that Hillary lost, it’s still not exactly clear what is being protested.
Democrats are holding up funding because they want to include legalizing the children of illegal immigrants who are on the DACA program without including the border security measures President Trump is demanding.

The Daily Caller reports that a California man suspected of being caught on video stabbing another man in the neck seven times at a supermarket is an illegal immigrant from Mexico with multiple criminal convictions including felony drug and weapons charges, and that he has been deported back to Mexico seven times since 2007.
The Labor Department just reported that last week’s unemployment claims dropped to the lowest level since 1973.

With his petulant tweetstorms and seemingly capricious changes of mind, President Trump makes his political foes suspect that he’s crazy. Even his political allies are kept perpetually off-balance by a leader who can seem not just mercurial but perplexingly incapable of maintaining a “presidential” approach to the most important job in the world.
In a stunning confluence of events, on the very day the Senate approved the “Section 702” provision that allows the FISA court to expand its authority to spy (apparently on Americans), we now have evidence that puts us very close to concluding that during the Obama administration, in a flagrant abuse of power...
To listen to the media, we might as well just save money by calling off the November elections and handing Congress to the Democrats, because they’ve already got it won (if they’ve forgotten how badly they misread the last election, YouTube is filling with compilations of their Election Night shock and grief that Republicans love to rewatch over and over.)
Apple just became the latest (and biggest) company of many to react to the GOP tax cut bill.

Over the weekend, a claim made headlines that polls show that this November, Democrats will definitely recapture the House and that Nancy Pelosi is a “lock” to become Speaker again. I assume this comes with the same 95% certainty guarantee as the prediction that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency.
Under intense questioning by Democratic Senators Patrick Leahy and Richard Blumenthal, a frustrated Secretary of Homeland Defense Kirstjen Nielsen testified under oath that she never heard President Trump use that offensive term...
Fox News host Lisa Boothe points out the obvious recurring narrative over the past year: every time there is good news that reflects well on Trump, Democrats and the media gin up an outrage storm over some unsourced leak that reinforces their narrative that Trump is crazy or racist.
A movement is gaining steam in non-coastal counties of California to break away from the ultra-liberal strip that’s dominating (some say ruining) the Golden State and form a 51st state called New California.
With the economy finally igniting after eight years of slow-to-no growth, Democrats are trying to give credit to Barack Obama’s policies (just as in the case of Jimmy Carter, the wonderful effects of Democrats’ policies only kick in a year or so after they are voted out of office, forever denying them the credit they deserve.)
