While never underestimating this businessman’s many abilities, it is not so much that President Donald J. Trump is able to walk and chew gum at the same time, it’s that we finally have a President who insists upon doing so concurrently (times ten) while keeping AND fighting to keep promises made to Americans.
Imagine that a whole generation(s) exists that has never witnessed such occurrences. The deep state, the Progressive leadership of both parties, the global establishment order and their media collaborators have brainwashed tthese useful idiots to believe that Trump’s actions are an anomaly.

What a wonderful past week we’ve been lucky to have. President Trump gave us three gifts this week.
1) Leaving Syria and drawing down in Afghanistan – we won the war, but we’ve had a stalemate in the nation rebuilding. I love General Mattis, however, he is a war machine guy, and why shouldn’t he be, he is very good at it. For as long as anyone can remember, we’ve known Trump to be a non-interventionalist. As president, he gave General Mattis time to do what he felt he needed to be done, and then it was time to move on. I thank General Mattis for his service to this great nation.
President Trump wants U.S. troops brought home from all the “stupid wars”; and as a consequence the time for Defense Secretary Mattis was sure to come to an end.
The Trump Doctrine of using economics to achieve national security objectives is a fundamental paradigm shift, history provides no reference.
Just like the demanded restructuring of NATO, removing troops from Syria and likely Afghanistan will run counter to the interventionist policies of those who advocate for military deployments; and also the benefactors on the business end of the military industrial complex.
Yes, it’s time for a shift.
2) The President was able to get the House to vote for wall funding, and had no problem shutting down the gluttonous government when the Senate refused to vote for its passage. Trump doesn’t play chicken, he makes deals and this shutdown will be long for the Democrats, GOP Inc and federal employees[…]
Here we are again, America, at the most joyous time of the year, i.e.,
As expected, there are those who are triggered by all things,
They are working hard this Christmas season in their endless war against Christians/Christmas from how the many ways that Christmas is celebrated, including the events, sights and sounds of the holiday. For some reason, the sound of Christmas to anti-Christian ideologues is the equivalent of nails raking across a chalkboard. My response:
To that I say, joyful noise. Turn it up, turn it up!
Speaking of which anti-Christian/anti-Christmas ideologues have zeroed in this year on the all-time favorite and Christmas classic, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” written in 1944 by songwriter, Frank Loesser.
Politically correct radio stations who have no objection playing Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” is on the warpath against a song written almost seven decades ago thanks to the useful idiots aka the Me Too movement.
According to the Me Too movement, i.e., the same people who brought us the Kavanaugh fiasco, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is a date rape song. Really.
Radio listeners are having none of it and radio stations are not towing the line to please these Marxist ideologues. The flag has been planted and it is no retreat, no return. Again, the MeToo movement has chosen the wrong hill to die on but then they have been doing that a lot lately.
The song gained its claim to fame in the 1949 comedy film, “Neptune’s Daughter” and went on in 1950 to won an Academy Award for the Best Original Song as performed by Ricardo Montalban and Esther Williams.
Loesser wrote Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” a call and response duet in which the male character attempts to convince the female character to spend the night due to outside weather conditions (cold and snow) for his wife to sing at Lynn Garland, at “their housewarming party in New York City at the Navarro Hotel. They sang the song to indicate to guests that it was time to leave.”
Red Skelton and Betty Garrett who also appeared in “Neptune’s Daughter” delivers a very funny performance of Baby, It’s Cold Outside” as well, only the roles are reversed. It is definitely a must see.
Although you may have seen it at least a dozen times over the past two weeks, below is the performance from the movie “Neptune’s Daughter” starring Ricardo Montalban and Esther Williams. The videographer also included Red Skelton and Betty Garrett’s performance of “Baby, It’s Cold outside.”
“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” has been re-done on many occasions. Another great version of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” was performed by the great, Frank Sinatra and Dorothy Kirsten.
Another great version is “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” as sung by none other than Dean Martin and Martina McBride.
I have no doubt that Dean Martin’s estate is laughing all the way to the bank. Martin’s version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” made Top Ten Digital Songs Sales Chart last week. I kid you not. (Screenshot below)
How about that? Meek Mill and Drake are number 17 and the late, great Dean Martin is number 10. Adding to that, this is a first for the song, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
According to Billboard,
Dean Martin‘s take, recorded in 1959, is the chart’s Greatest Gainer, soaring from No. 31 to No. 10 on the Dec. 22-dated list, up 70 percent to 11,000 downloads sold in the week ending Dec. 13, according to Nielsen Music. A week earlier, it returned to the chart with a 257 percent blast to 7,000 sold.
For a second consecutive week, Martin’s cover is the second-best-selling holiday song, below Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” (14,000, down 6 percent)[…]
Talk about the wrong hill to die on? Other versions of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is showing up on the charts as well.
One of the latest versions of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” to my knowledge is a short Barnes & Noble ad featuring Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett.
Bound to trigger the politically correct, is the 2013 performance of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” by Gaga and Joseph Gordon-Levittthat in the Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday special, “Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular“ that aired on ABC in 2013.
I suspect that ideologues would blame these performances on the immorality of white privilege or some crap.
If that is the case, then version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” performed by Idina Menzel and Michael Bublé is really going to send snowflakes and those begging to be oppressed over the top. A well choreographed version, the performance brings home the point that it’s about innocent banter and not a “rape song” as labeled by Me Too fanatics. The singing and performance is a real classic and the child performers are marvelous. See the video below.
What more proof do we need to show that the war on Caucasians, especially Cacucasian men is pure b.s.!
The song “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is extremely popular and crosses the line of color. There are countless versions as well of the song performed by African American duets.
Performed by Ray Charles and Betty Carter.
and the duet of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Jordan —
the maestro, Louis Armstrong also performed the duet “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with Ella Fitzgerald. (LINK)
Note that Ray Charles sang the song with several artists, among them were Dionne Warwick years ago at the Grammy’s.
William Shatner nailed it and while anti-Christmas ideologues and MeToo snowflakes attempted to pillory Captain Kirk for calling out the obvious, they failed.
Okay, so now that I have inundated you with so many versions of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” that I lost count, you might ask, what is my point?
You have to see it to believe it.
These kids are miserable.
Moving on…I promise. This is the last version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” as performed by Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart.
In the spirit of Christmas, how about we lighten up? Of course, doing so means only one thing and that is that the Progressive(s) in your family are bound to get triggered.

The following is satirical.
Christmas is almost here, and that means you’ll be sitting down with your relatives in the spirit of bright good will in order to share a holiday meal and crush their political positions with your searing insights, your cutting wit, and your knowledge of the porn searches they tried to erase but which you uncovered and are more than willing to reveal to the entire family in the middle of dessert.
And isn’t that what Christmas is all about? For it is written in the Gospel according to YouTube, “The Lord sat down to dine with sinners and absolutely DESTROYED them!!!!” And that went totally viral, so I’m sure your family dinner can do the same.
Here, then, are some tips on how to deal with your leftist relatives over Christmas dinner.
I think you can be pretty sure your sister will bring up that ridiculous old idea that Christians should be loving and caring toward those in need[…]
It is unfortunate that those with an agenda has made Christmas all about commercialism, profits, material desires while ignoring those in need and/or leaving those in need to the care of the government.
News alert: The government doesn’t give a damn and any talk of suffering by poverty stricken and homeless Americans have become talking points pulled out every 2, 4 or 6 years to rack up votes.
Here in New York City, those very same bureaucrats have declared war against individuals and entities that, from their heart and on their own reach out to the homeless and poverty-stricken, the result of which leaves the unfortunate even worse off.
Please don’t ignore them this Christmas season. Remember our veterans, many of whom are homeless and living beneath the poverty level. Keep in mind that a new television, Playstation 4, computer, toys or skis is not at all what Christmas is about.
One solitary act of kindness and/or a moment of caring does not cost a dime.

No matter where you go or what you do, at this time of year, you cannot avoid the marketing and advertising “blitzkrieg” that has transformed the Christmas season into some horribly disfigured mutation of the original point of the holiday. Thanks in large part to the political correctness movement, and this idea that public displays of religion and faith… most especially Christian religion and faith… are now considered offensive to the smaller numbers of non-believers, and should be constrained wherever and whenever possible.
All the while, as this unwinnable cultural Civil War rages on, there are vast numbers of innocent bystanders out there around the world silently suffering through a sadness or anguish or heartbreak or loss that those cultural Civil warriors could scarcely comprehend let alone personally endure or overcome.
Each of us – from every faith and lack thereof – would be well-served by the reminder that, for some, the Christmas holiday season is not necessarily a happy or joyous time of year. It should inspire you to take pause, long enough to see beyond the gadgets and baubles and trinkets and consider the lives and circumstances of our less fortunate brothers and sisters around the world. It should encourage you, as well, to be just a little more humble, a little more generous, and a whole lot more kind… not just to your friends, families, and loved ones, but to the nameless & unfamiliar faces of “your tired, your poor, your huddled masses” that you encounter as you walk freely about the cabins of your everyday lives[…]

A little Christmas music to get you in the holiday spirit while shopping, putting up your Christmas tree, decorations and lights. Enjoy.
Please also remember, thank and pray for our men and women in service who will spend this Christmas holiday away from our shores, away from their families.
