#3  we were really lucky that Weiner couldn't keep his weiner in his pants, and that law enforcement were actually willing to prosecute him.

otherwise he and Huma would be DCs power couple. Weiner would probably be NY governor by now, with eyes on the senate and further eyes on the presidency.

Pelosi hears from GOP as Dem bill directs $200M to park in her San Francisco district
[FoxBusinessNews] Republicans cried foul this week over $200 million earmarked in the House Democrats’ massive $3.5 trillion budget resolution for the Presidio Park in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco district, according to reports.

"Their deficit spending proposals saddle future generations with insurmountable debt in order to give Nancy Pelosi things like a $200 million earmark," Rep. Bruce Westerman, R-Ark., ranking member of the House Natural Resources Committee, said Thursday while the committee began marking up the bill, according to the Washington Times.

The Presidio is a 1,500-acre national historic park that sits on the San Francisco Peninsula. Drivers see the park as they enter San Francisco from Marin County via the Golden Gate Bridge.

Pelosi helped build support to create the Presidio Trust when the park transitioned from a military installation in the 1990s.

The speaker is also known to frequent the park herself.

#8  Senator Manchin wrote an opinion piece just published in the Wall Street Journal explaining that he will not support the $3.5 trillion budget bill because it will cause runaway inflation after the $5 trillion spent for Covid. So it doesn’t matter what pork House Speaker Pelosi stuffs in her version, the thing is dead in the water.

#9  It only took $400 million (albeit in 1971 dollars) to build Disney World. At that time that would have meant the Magic Kingdom, two resort hotels, and an incredible amount of land moving.

Biden claim to visit Tree of Life Synagogue - Synagogue says it didn't happen
[NYPost] President Biden on Thursday told Jewish leaders that he spent time at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh after the October 2018 mass murder of 11 people there; but the synagogue told The Post he never visited.

"I remember spending time at the, you know, going to the, you know, the Tree of Life synagogue, speaking with them," Biden said in a 16-minute virtual address ahead of the Jewish holidays Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Barb Feige, executive director of the Tree of Life, said that Biden did not visit the synagogue in the nearly three years since the anti-Semitic attack.

In a phone interview, Feige, executive director since July 2019, said firmly that "no" Biden didn't visit, even before taking office when he had a lower public profile as a former vice president and then-Democratic presidential candidate.
This is at least the 50th time Biden has made up stuff about himself.

Utah voters ready for Romney replacement, poll shows
[WASHINGTONTIMES] Utah Republicans are fed up with Sen. Willard Mitt Romney, aka Pierre Delecto
...former governor of Massachussetts, the Publican nominee for president in 2012, now Senator from Utah. He is the son of the former governor of Michigan, George Romney, who himself ran for president after saving American Motors from failure, though not permanently. Romney has a record as a successful businessman, heading Bain Capital, and he rescued the 2002 Winter Olympics from the midst of bribery and mismanagement scandals. He is currently a trans Republican and a member in good standing of the Never Trump Party, attempting to assume the mantle of the late John McCain...
, according to a survey released on Wednesday.

A poll from OH Predictive Insights found 63% of registered Republican voters in the state would rather have someone else from the party representing them, compared to 35% who stand with Mr. Romney, the party’s 2012 presidential nominee.

"In the 2012 Presidential election, Mitt Romney earned the largest share of the vote in Utah of any Republican presidential candidate since Reagan in 1984," said Mike Noble, chief of research for OH Predictive Insights. "The data shows that Utahns’ opinions have flipped since 2012 — with two-thirds of GOP voters preferring a Republican senator other than Mitt Romney, he is more vulnerable than ever in a primary election."
I don't know if Utah voters are ready for a replacement, but I know most of the rest of us are.

Liz Cheney promoted to vice chair of Jan. 6 select committee
[NYPOST] Rep. Liz Cheney
...Faux Republican hereditary congresswoman-for-life from Wyoming. She has been described as Republican royalty. A staunch Never Trumper, Liz supported the second impeachment of Donald Trump for his role in the 2021 storming of the U.S. Capitol. Publicans dumped her from her leadership position in May 2021. Refusing to admit that she had trashed her own career, Cheney has said that she intends to be the leader... in a fight to help to restore our party and that she may be interested in a future presidential run....
’s role on the Jan. 6 select committee has been elevated to vice chair of the panel, Chairman Bennie Thompson announced on Thursday.

The promotion will allow the Wyoming Republican to lead proceedings in the event of Thompson’s absence, placing her in the No. 2 ranking member on the committee.

Cheney has come under fire from her GOP colleagues for accepting Speaker Nancy San Fran Nan Pelosi
Congresswoman-for-Life from the San Francisco Bay Area, born into a family of professional politicians. On-again-off-again Speaker of the House. It's not her fault when they lose, but it's her accomplishment when they win. Noted for her heavily botoxed grimace and occasional senior... uhhh... moments...
’s offer to join the panel tasked with investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol Riot — after she was ousted from her position as GOP conference chair in May.

"Representative Cheney has demonstrated again and again her commitment to getting answers about January 6th, ensuring accountability, and doing whatever it takes to protect democracy for the American people. Her leadership and insights have shaped the early work of the Select Committee and this appointment underscores the bipartisan nature of this effort," Thompson said in a statement.

The announcement comes as House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) is pushing for a rules change to oust both Cheney and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), who was also tapped by Democrats to serve on the panel, from the House GOP conference — alleging the GOP Trump critics are "spies for the Democrats that we currently invite to the meetings, despite our inability to trust them."

Now VP of the Jan. 6th investigation against Trump and many wrongfully arrested protesters.

Will she continue to openly be a Blue RINO or will she suddenly change her tune (temporarily) for the upcoming re-election.

Democrats REJECT Republican bid to ban military from teaching Critical Race Theory in negotiations over the National Defense Authorization Act
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news] They get to do that because they control both Houses of Congress, which is why voting for an imperfect Republican matters if the other choice is a Democrat.
