Ever the provocateur, the president yesterday released his much-anticipated list of “Fake News Award” winners. They were posted on GOP.com and the site summarily crashed from the surge of traffic. The media’s reaction was, as always, predictable. Rather than keep you in suspense, here’s the list and the ensuing fallout…

A Golden Scalp Weasel - The Saga Rolls on:

Trump sits in the oval office, receiving a briefing.

"Your medical report was astounding sir, and the doctor delivering it was impeccable," GorillaPundit states.

"That admiral is good, great fellow, one of the best."

"Unfortunately, several members of the press corps started foaming at the mouth in frustration and had to be committed." …

This saga has been going on since the primaries. I hope it's being collected.

…On this day in 1919 the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, requiring Prohibition in the United States one year after ratification it was ratified by the State legislaters. It was in effect for 19 years and was repealed with ratification by the States' voters directly in 1933 by ratification of the 21st amendment. Ratification by the legislatures would have failed since they were still controlled by the prohibitionists.

Vic and JJ, mild-mannered intrepid reporters for a great smart military blog. Mild mannered? Hahahaha.

…My maternal grandfather lost his left arm up to the elbow in a corn picker PTO shaft. This would have been sometime in the mid 50's, before my aunt was born. She says she's glad he never had two hands when she was growing up, he was mean enough with just one. Grand-dad was a stern fellow. Tough old bastard, too, he managed to kick the drive lever into neutral and disengage himself from the PTO shaft, then he unhooked the tractor from the corn picker and drove himself to the house so that Grandmother could drive him to the hospital.…

The topic was unfortunate PTO engagements, but this one took the cake.

…On this day 1971 in a great travesty of justice the liberal wing of SCOTUS ruled 5-4 to overrule the conviction of murder by a serial killer in NH.

A short man pushes forward. "I am Bill of the Kristol!"

At an underground lair in New York Hillary looks at the screen, thankful the mute button is engaged. "God, what imbeciles I have to work with." …

This saga has been going on, off and on, in various forms, since back in the primaries. I hope it's being collected somewhere.

… On this day in 1949 President Harry Truman unveiled his Fair Deal program. It was nothing more than a rehash of FDR's so-called 'new deal' program of communist social programs. You don't hear too much about the fair deal because the public had had enough of FDR's shit and voted Democrats out of office for a short while and the 'fair deal' could not make it through congress.

If you read only one source for news, make it Vic & JJ - just like Huntley and Brinkey except honest… and not dead.

…On this day in 1974 far left liberal asshole Richard Nixon signed a bill passed by the all Democrat congress lowering the maximum U.S. speed limit to 55 MPH in order to conserve gasoline during the OPEC embargo.
