The Hat Hit Squad

Who will the Liars' Mob go after next?
Meanwhile, the "news" outlets that spread this garbage are furiously backpedaling. I was amused by this headline from CBS News: "Conflicting accounts sowed confusion about confrontation at Lincoln Memorial." No, the video evidence didn't sow confusion. Just the opposite. We saw the truth for ourselves and realized we'd been lied to. It's the least confusing thing there is. The only people who claim to be confused are the ones who are under the mistaken impression that they're the good guys.

The March for Life was a huge success, and the Dems can't stand it. If they can't stop the march from happening, they'll try to intimidate as many attendees as they can. See what's happening to these kids? Well then, maybe you should think twice before expressing an opinion that isn't approved by your betters.

If they'll do it to a bunch of high school kids, who's next? Me? You?
First, they came for the red hats...

Sharing The Blame

It's their fault too, says...Tom Brokaw:
“I think the Democrats are as much to blame right now as the Republicans are,” Brokaw said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “They’ve got control of the House, but they’re mostly just, ‘yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, we’re not going to do what you wanna do.’ I haven’t seen a grand plan.”

“You’ve got the young people running through the halls, who are the new members of Congress, who are conducting pep rallies every day instead of getting together with the more moderate people,” he continued. “They’re being driven hard from the left. It’s a time of great chaos I think.”
Chaos is their business, but business isn't good...

Chronic Pass

No pot for them:
According to USA Today Sports:

Acreage Holdings, which is in the cannabis cultivation, processing and dispensing business, said it produced a 60-second ad that shows three people suffering from varying health issues who say their lives were made better by use of medical marijuana.

Acreage said its ad agency sent storyboards for the ad to the network and received a return email that said: ‘CBS will not be accepting any ads for medical marijuana at this time.’

A CBS spokesman informed Acreage that broadcasting standards do not allow the network to air cannabis-related advertising.

CBS’ rejection, however, did not come as a surprise to Acreage President George Allen.

“We’re not particularly surprised that CBS and/or the NFL rejected the content,” Allen said. “And that is actually less a statement about them and more we think a statement about where we stand right now in this country.

“One of the hardest parts about this business is the ambiguity that we operate within. We do the best we can to navigate a complex fabric of state and federal policy, much of which conflicts.”

Despite the fact that marijuana is legal in some form in 30 states plus the District of Columbia, the federal government still considers marijuana an illegal drug under the Controlled Substances Act.
That hasn't stopped many players from using it...

You're Fired

Robots, go home:
According to CNET, “Henn-na’s robot staff was first employed in 2015 with the aim of becoming ‘the most efficient hotel in the world.’ But four years later, it seems that the 243 robots are less of a novelty and more of a nuisance. As a result, the Henn-na Hotel has fired half of them.”
CNET reported that a number of guests had complained about the robots, which allegedly woke them up in the middle of the night, interrupted conversations, and struggled to “answer basic guest questions without human help.”

“Bellhop robots were designed to carry luggage, but they could only move on flat surfaces and could only access a small number of rooms,” explained CNET. “Their hotel careers were also cut short.”
The robot hotel takeover will have to wait...

Dress For Success

What's the matter with parents these days?
Parkinson's proposed legislation would require the adoption of a dress code, but each district would be responsible for setting their own guidelines.

"I visualize clothes that are not sexually suggestive," he said. "Not wearing things that might encourage or suggest gang activity."

According to WREG, "the dress code would be part of a larger code of conduct that would ideally prevent parents and visitors from cursing, fighting, and showing up on campus drunk or high."
Why can't Mom and Dad learn how to behave?

Stay Away From The Mob

No briefings for you:
The president’s tweet comes as the White House has been criticized for not holding regular press briefings. The last press briefing was Dec. 18—35 days ago, which marks Sanders’ longest stretch away from the podium. ABC News reported that the previous record was 29 days.

This stretch comes amid an intense partial government shutdown, with no end in sight. The government ran out of funding on Dec. 22, over a border security funding debate between the White House and congressional Democrats, and has left more than 800,000 federal workers and contractors without pay. Tuesday marks the 32nd day of the partial shutdown.

Olivier Knox, the president of the White House Correspondents Association, said in a Tuesday statement that the “retreat from transparency and accountability sets a terrible precedent.”

“Being able to question the press secretary or other senior government officials publicly helps the news media tell Americans what their most powerful representatives are doing in their name,” Knox said. “While other avenues exist to obtain information, the robust, public back-and-forth we’ve come to expect in the James A. Brady briefing room helps highlight that no one in a healthy republic is above being questioned.”

White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley on Tuesday also defended the decision to give fewer press briefings.

“She will come back when she finds a reason to do that, because so often, so funny, because the media often tell us when Sarah Sanders stands…at this podium, ‘why can’t we hear from the president? we need to hear more from the president,’” Gidley said on “America’s Newsroom.”
If you whine, she won't come...

The Out Of Towners

Democrats are still on vacation:
Both sides of the aisle have been locked in a political stalemate over an appropriations bill, and despite the hundreds of thousands of furloughed federal workers, Congress has been spotted leaving D.C. on the weekends.

Pelosi notably received backlash for spending the Christmas holiday vacationing in a luxurious four-diamond resort in Hawaii. She was also spotted two weeks later in Reagan National Airport after Trump canceled her trip overseas.

“I think the men and women who are working for us deserve to be paid, but I don’t think that’s a false choice to say that you have to have that and not secure out border,” Roy said. “Of course we should secure our border. We can do both of these things. The American people expect us to do both of these things. And that’s why I’m here.”
Do your jobs, Democrats-or the voters may decide you don't deserve to keep them...
