John McCain switched orthopedic boot to left foot ‘to give it a break’

On November 6, 2017, RINO Sen. John McCain was seen wearing an orthopedic or walking boot on his right leg because, we were told, of a “minor tear” in his right Achilles’ tendon.

Coincidentally (or not), Hillary Clinton also has an orthopedic boot on her right foot, ostensibly because she had broken her right foot’s big toe when she “ran downstairs in heels and fell backward”.

That both Hillary and McCain are wearing clumsy walking boots led to speculation in the Alternative Media that their boots are not for a torn Achilles’ tendon and broken big toe. They have those walking boots on to conceal their ankle monitors, like the one below. See “Are Hillary’s and John McCain’s orthopedic boots actually ankle bracelets?

On November 22, 2017, McCain tweeted a pic of himself and his wife, Cindy, which shows his orthopedic boot had moved to his left leg.

Below are side-by-side pics of McCain on Nov. 22 (l) and on Nov. 6 (r).

McCain switching the walking boot to his left leg simply reinforced online speculation about an ankle monitor. Old people’s skin gets very thin and easily bruised. The ankle monitor probably was chafing 81-year-old McCain’s skin, so he requested the monitor be moved to his left ankle, thus necessitating a walking boot on his left leg for concealment.

In a tweet yesterday, McCain admitted that he’d switched the boot from his right to left leg.

And the reason? — to give his left leg “a break” because it was doing extra work to compensate for the boot being on his right leg.

He must really think us to be stupid.

Some choice tweets in response:

tbswisher: “Orthopedic boots are to stabilize bones…not overworked muscles. Try again..”

Johnny: “Your explanation is to cause more strain to your healing torn tendon foot? You do realize how ridiculous you sound right?”

Straight Shooter: “I wore a boot for 6 weeks after a while it wasn’t a big deal! You get used to it! Certainly wasn’t advised by my surgeon to switch which leg I had it on!”

Cynthia Lovely: “Wearing a boot is exhausting. But how in the world does switching it help?! Put the burden on the actual injured/just healed leg b/c the other got tired?! Absurd!!”

WWE4LIFE: “Why you always lying?”

ILOVETheDonald: “Did someone come to your house and switch it to the other leg? Was it a LEO? GPS moniters that size can’t be left on for too long.”

Prospective USA: “Is the boot there to hide your ankle bracelet……”

Sherwood57: “Whatever! You know none of us believe that shit. Stick your head in the sand, John.”

Texas Sheepdog: “Did you tweet this out because you’re going to try to claim mental incompetence to avoid prosecution? That’s what it sure looks like… but it’s not going to work. For just once in your life, how about you grow a pair, man TF up and face the consequences of your actions? Coward”

ANNORA11: “RETIRE !!!!!!!”

Bradd Powless: “Another lie to coverup a lie.”

Viva Covfefe!: “Liar!”

Deplorable Rocketman: “How strange. I work in a hospital and all the doctors think you’re full of it. How’s the ankle monitor?”

mike diaz: “LOL nice try man but no one believes this shit”

Did I say that?: “I thought you were dying?”

Neo-con Bill Kristol’s mask comes off; admits he’s socialist & liberal

There is a fumigation — a disinfection of America — going on.

Can you feel it?:

  • Every day, creeps like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Charlie Rose are being outed and banished from Hollywood and the MSM.
  • Human traffickers and pedophiles are being arrested at a number that dwarfs the years of Obama.
  • Enraged by the election of Donald John Trump to the presidency, the Left are apoplectic and are abandoning all pretenses. Many have stripped off their masks, revealing their true faces, like “comedienne” Kathy Griffin when she held a mock-up of President Trump’s decapitated head.

It’s like our opponents have taken the truth serum: they just can’t help outing themselves.

The latest to out himself is the neo, i.e., faux conservative Bill Kristol, founder and editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard — the never Trumper who:

Yesterday, Kristol finally stripped off his mask, admitting that he’s a socialist and a liberal. He tweeted:

Kristol’s fellow liberals certainly recognize one of their own and greeted his tweet with elation. Some examples:

Bongmaster: “Embrace it Bill. Embrace humanity.”

NYC118: “Come into the light!”

Michael Rowland: “I didn’t agree with you about basically anything until 2016. Now I follow your stuff constantly.”

The Man in Black: “Welcome to the world of all Democrats that have started following you on Twitter since Orange Caligula became the GOP nominee.”

But the choicest reactions to Kristol’s self-unmasking are from the Deplorables:

Pol0tix: “You are becoming the jackass we always suspected you really were!”

Tj Kansler: “You’ve lost your mind and your moral compass.”

American Real News: “Kristol is a prototypical RINO. They believe in nothing so they fall for everything.”

Mamie Love: “The entire right has rejected you, an inauthentic neocon, so you now have to play to the left to keep your taxpayer-funded country club lifestyle intact.”

Noni: “What’s happening is that Trump’s election is exposing all your Globalist freaks who were pretending to be Conservatives; this election has brought out the inner Loon of you & your NeverTrumper buddies.”

Tim Parton: “You’ve never been for the people, traitor.”

President Trump is rapidly reshaping America’s judiciary ‘to end the progressive state as we know it’

A main reason why I voted for Donald John Trump last November 8th has to do with the courts — not just the Supreme Court, but also the circuit courts across America that wield profound influence over Americans’ lives. Whereas the Supreme Court hears about 80 cases a year, the 12 regional appeals courts get the final word on about 60,000 cases a year.

During last year’s presidential campaign, Trump promised to select conservative Supreme Court justices. Exit polls showed that court-focused voters helped deliver Trump’s victory.

True to his word, President Trump hasn’t been in office for even a year and he is already on the verge of putting more “originalist” (original intent of the Founders) conservatives in the circuit courts than any other President!

That’s because Trump was prepared and had a battle plan to reshape America’s judiciary, which he entrusted to an attorney named Donald F. McGahn II, who would become his White House counsel.

Charlie Savage reports for the New York Times, Nov. 11, 2017, that in the weeks before Trump was inaugurated, lawyers joining his administration gathered at a law firm near the Capitol, where McGahn filled a white board with a secret battle plan to fill the federal appeals courts with young and deeply conservative judges.

McGahn mapped out potential nominees and a strategy, according to two people familiar with the effort:

  • Start by filling vacancies on appeals courts with multiple openings and where Democratic senators up for re-election next year in states won by Trump — like Indiana, Michigan and Pennsylvania — could be pressured not to block Trump’s nominees.
  • Speed the nominees through confirmation.
  • Avoid clogging the Senate with too many nominees for the district courts, where legal philosophy is less crucial.

Trump began with an unusually large number of court vacancies:

  • 21 open appellate seats because after Republicans gained control of the Senate in 2015, they essentially shut down the confirmation process.
  • 6 additional appellate judgeships have opened since Trump’s inauguration.
  • Nearly half of the 150 active appeals court judges are eligible to take senior status — semiretirement that permits a successor’s appointment — or will soon reach that age.

As a result of GOP control over both houses of Congress, Trump is the first Republican president whose nominees can be confirmed by simple-majority votes. And every single one of Trump’s judges is vouched by the Federalist Society and other conservative groups.

Leonard A. Leo, the executive vice president of the Federalist Society and an informal adviser to President Trump on courts, said Trump had instructed his transition team to prioritize appointing conservative judges who would be “strong” and could resist “tremendous political and social pressure.” Leo said:

“What makes this a unique opportunity in modern history is the sheer number of vacancies, the number of potential vacancies because of the aging bench, and the existence of a president who really cares about this issue in his gut . . . and recognizes that he could be a president who could help restore the judiciary to its proper role.”

Nearly a year later, Trump’s battle plan is coming to fruition:

  • Republicans are systematically filling appellate seats they held open during Obama’s final two years in office with a particularly conservative group of judges with life tenure. Democrats — who in late 2013 abolished the ability of 41 lawmakers to block such nominees with a filibuster — have scant power to stop them.
  • Trump has already appointed eight appellate judges, the most this early in a presidency since Richard M. Nixon. Thanks to Republican control, the Senate Judiciary Committee has voted to send a 9th appellate nominee, deputy White House counsel Gregory Katsas, to the floor.

All of which prompted President Trump to say, “We will set records in terms of the number of judges. There has never been anything like what we’ve been able to do together with judges.” He added that many more nominees are in the pipeline.

Indeed, President Trump is poised to bring the conservative legal movement, which took shape in the 1980s in reaction to decades of liberal rulings on issues like the rights of criminal suspects and of women who want abortions, to a new peak of influence over American law and society.

Liberals are apoplectic:

  • Nan Aron, of the liberal Alliance for Justice, calls Trump’s nominees “extremists”.
  • Baher Azmy, Legal Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights legal advocacy group, whines “I think the goal is to end the progressive state as we know it.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)

In all this, Trump has had help from the Senate Judiciary Committee chairman, Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), in lowering impediments and keeping the confirmation assembly line moving by:

  • Scheduling three confirmation hearings for appellate nominees this year, as many as took place during all eight years of the Obama administration.
  • Holding hearings for four district judge nominees just this year, just three fewer than the seven district judge nominees during the eight Bush years.

There is a speculation in the Alternative Media that one reason why President Trump is working so quickly to put in place conservatives judges across America is to prepare for “The Storm” when those unprecedented number of sealed indictments are unsealed and arrests are made to finally bring long-time evil-doers like the Podesta brothers and we hope, Hillary the Cannibal Queen, to justice.

Keep praying for President Trump!

Colorado VA kept secret wait lists for vets’ mental health care

misadministration

Par for the course under Obama’s administration. See also:

From Fox News: A new government watchdog group found that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs facility in Denver violated policy by keeping improper wait lists to track mental health care that veterans received.

Investigators with the VA Office of Inspector General confirmed whistleblower and former VA employee Brian Smother’s claim that staff kept unauthorized lists instead of using the department’s official wait list system.

That made it impossible to know if veterans who needed referrals for group therapy and other mental health care were getting timely assistance, according to the report. The internal investigation also criticized record-keeping in PTSD cases at the VA’s facility in Colorado Springs.

Patients there often went longer than the department’s stated goals of getting an initial consult within a week and treatment within 30 days, investigators found. In one case, a veteran killed himself 13 days after contacting the clinic, which was supposed to see him within a week.

Investigators said the unofficial lists did not always identify the veteran or requested date of care, and they could not determine how many veterans were waiting to receive help and for how long, even with the help of staff at the facilities.

“My worst fears have been realized in this Inspector General’s report that Chairman Johnson and I demanded,” Colorado Republican Senator Cory Gardener said in a statement. “It highlights even more VA mismanagement and lack of accountability in Colorado. This cannot happen again, and it’s time for the VA to finally wake up and ensure our men and women are getting the best care possible. I will continue to work with Chairman Johnson to ensure the accountability that somehow the VA refuses to accept.”

Smothers, who worked at the VA in Denver as a peer support specialist on the post-traumatic stress disorder clinical support team, informed Gardner and his fellow senator, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, last about the VA facilities in Denver and nearby Golden using wait lists for mental health services from 2012 until last September. Gardner (I think they mean Smothers here) resigned from his post at the VA shortly after going public, citing retaliation from VA officials in Colorado.

“Putting veterans on secret wait lists is not acceptable,” Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson said in a statement. “The VA should implement changes to provide the highest quality care for our veterans and hold wrongdoers accountable. I thank Brian Smothers, the whistleblower who bravely came forward to shed a light on these unacceptable practices at the VA so they can be prevented in the future.”

Speaking to the Associated Press, Smothers said he was disappointed the report didn’t make clearer that VA staff knew full well what they were doing. “We renamed the files ‘interest lists’ so people wouldn’t know we were breaking the rules” on how to maintain wait lists, Smothers said.

The VA Eastern Colorado Health Care system said in a statement that while it agreed with much of the report’s findings it bristled at the idea that its wait lists were “secret.” The statement says that “nothing about this process was secret” and that it was discontinued once staff became aware it violated VA policies.

Kill her with kindness: Scalise responds to Rosie O’Donnell’s profanity-laced tweets

rosie o'donnell tweet

What a miserable proggie.

From Fox Insider: House Majority Whip Steve Scalise reacted to an expletive-laced message from comedian Rosie O’Donnell after the House passed its tax reform proposal.

“Your life was saved a*****e, do something with it,” O’Donnell fumed on Twitter. “Find your morality [and] decency. Stop lying about tax cuts to the rich.”

The southerner responded with a simple “Bless your heart.”

Scalise smiled when asked about it by Martha MacCallum, saying that when liberals like O’Donnell have to “resort to the kind of name calling and cursing,” then “we won the argument.”

“Let the liberal elites cry because they lost the election,” he said, adding that the tax bill is indeed a boost for working families and businesses.

Scalise was gravely wounded by an Illinois man during a Republican baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.

Sandra Bullock to star as Wendy Davis in “Let Her Speak”

sandra bullock

Way to tarnish your career by playing the loser Abortion Barbie. I predict another Hollyweird dud.

From Dallas News: Sandra Bullock is poised to take on the role of Wendy Davis in a new movie called Let Her Speak about the filibuster that catapulted the former Texas senator into the national spotlight.

Bullock, who previously lived in Austin, is attached to the script as long as the project lands a director she likes, Deadline Hollywood reported.

The movie would cover the day of the filibuster as well as Davis’ journey from a teen mother living in a trailer park to a Harvard-trained lawyer who later won a seat on the Fort Worth City Council.

On June 25, 2013, Davis stood on the state Senate floor in pink Mizuno sneakers for more than 12 straight hours to block a vote on what would have been one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country. She went without breaks and water during the filibuster.

When Republicans used strict interpretations of the Senate rules to try to end the filibuster and call a vote before the first special session of the 83rd Legislature ended at midnight, abortion rights activists who had packed the gallery erupted into chants of “let her speak.”

The vote was cast in favor of the bill largely along party lines, but came too late and the session was called to a close without Senate Bill 5’s passage. 

After the filibuster, then-Gov. Rick Perry called legislators back for another special session, and the bill that banned abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy was passed.

The bill also mandated that abortions be performed at hospital-like surgical centers and that doctors who perform abortions must have admitting privileges at hospitals, requirements that caused more than half of the state’s abortion clinics to close.

After a lengthy legal debate, the U.S. Supreme Court in June 2016 struck down the regulations on abortion doctors and clinics in a 5-3 decision. The ruling determined that the restrictions posed an unconstitutional burden on women seeking to end a pregnancy.

Davis waived a bid for re-election to run for governor in 2014. She was dealt a strong defeat by Greg Abbott, who beat her with more than 20 percentage points. 

Another Hollyweird project I won’t be seeing.
