Pelosi brings up Trump 'manhood,' says meeting with him was like 'tinkle contest' with skunk

 NBC News         ALEX MOE AND DARTUNORRO CLARK             Dec 11th 2018 
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, speaking to Democrats behind closed doors on Tuesday, said President Donald Trump's "manhood" got in the way of their Oval Office meeting in which he threatened to shut down the government if Congress doesn't fund his border wall.

"It's like a manhood thing for him — as if manhood could ever be associated with him — this wall thing," Pelosi said, a Democratic aide who declined to be named told NBC News.

Pelosi, who is expected to become the House Speaker next month, made the comments at a meeting of the Steering and Policy Committee after she and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer spoke with Trump at the White House about the border wall and a possible government shutdown.

"The press is all there! Chuck is really shouting out," Pelosi recounted to her colleagues of the meeting with Trump. "I was trying to be the mom. I can't explain it to you. It was so wild."

She added, "It goes to show you: You get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you."

At the meeting, Trump was adamant about owning a government shut down if he did not get funding for a border wall.

"If we don't get what we want one way or the other ... I will shut down the government," Trump said during the heated and on-camera dispute with Pelosi and Schumer. "I am proud to shut down the government for border security. ... I will take the mantle of shutting it down."
Witchy  sez :   
Nancy castrated the bloated orange pig and that is just a hint of what awaits him when she takes control of the House on January 3, 2019."as if manhood could ever be associated with him"
Launch the blimp baby and keep it up...since Donnie can't obviously.
Great job Nancy!   Trump needs to be reminded that he only has a "little" mushroom head!! Trump is such a joke!!
Trump is in for a different show after January, he’s going to being a huge temper tantrum. Can’t wait to watch him squirm! Republicans: Just a reminder - You hate Pelosi because you fear her.  She just pwned your leader in a meeting that was broadcast on TV, and then insulted "Mr. tiny hands" about his manhood.     She had the biggest balls in the room.
Trump is scared and lashing out.  Mueller must be onto something to get him this rattled.
Stay tune "As The Stomach Turns"  HeHe

Band Aid

Band Aid  in 2014 was about  the 'ebola' virus in Africa, decimating  lives

Below, Same Song in 1985 - different issues...Live Aid for world hunger
Band Aid performing at Live Aid in front of 72,000 people in Wembley Stadium, London in 1985. The event was organized by Sir Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise funds for the Ethiopian famine disaster. Broadcast across the world via one of the largest satellite link-ups of all time, the concerts were seen by around 40% of the global population.

I wonder what they would sing about this year ... There are so many choices

Another Live Aid effort was undertaken by singers in America about 30 years ago and is still going .....Farm Aid

N.Y. federal prosecutors seek prison for former Trump lawyer Cohen

 THOMSON REUTERS            Dec 7th 2018 
WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Federal prosecutors on Friday asked a judge to sentence Michael Cohen, U.S. President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, to a "substantial" prison term for paying an adult film star hush money on Trump's behalf and evading taxes.

Cohen, who has been cooperating with U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Russia and Trump's 2016 election campaign, pleaded guilty to the charges in August in New York. He also pleaded guilty to lying to Congress in a separate case handled by Mueller.

In a separate filing, Mueller's office said on Friday that it would not take a position on Cohen's sentencing, scheduled for next Wednesday.

It noted that Cohen cooperated with its probe but described his lies to Congress about his efforts to build a Trump skyscraper in Moscow as "deliberate and premeditated."

Mueller said Cohen continued to work on the Moscow project and discuss it with Trump well into the 2016 presidential campaign.

Mueller said Cohen's untruthfullness about the project "was material" to its ongoing investigations "particularly because it occurred at a time of sustained efforts by the Russian government to interfere with the U.S. presidential election."

The federal prosecutors in the New York case described Cohen in their filing as being motivated by "personal greed" and said he "repeatedly used his power and influence for deceptive ends" in pressing the judge to reject Cohen's request he be spared prison.

They said Cohen should receive some credit for his cooperation with Mueller, but noted that he had not entered into a cooperation agreement with their office. They said his sentence should reflect a "modest" reduction from the four to five years they said federal guidelines would suggest.

Cohen is scheduled to be sentenced next Wednesday by U.S. District Judge William Pauley in Manhattan on all of the charges to which he pleaded guilty, including his admission of lying to Congress which was handled by Mueller's office. Cohen's lawyers have asked that he receive no jail time, saying he has cooperated extensively with Mueller and New York prosecutors and has taken responsibility for his actions.

Mueller is also scheduled on Friday to submit details about alleged lies by Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, to investigators, in a separate case in a federal court in Washington.

Mueller accused Manafort last month of breaching a plea bargain agreement by lying to his prosecutors.

Manafort, who maintains he has been truthful with Mueller, managed Trump's campaign for three months in 2016.

The Mueller probe has infuriated Trump, who has regularly issued tweets criticizing the special counsel and his team.

The president has denied any collusion between his campaign and Russia, and accuses Mueller's prosecutors of pressuring his former aides to lie about him, his election campaign and his business dealings. Russia has denied meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

The president has called Cohen a liar and "weak person."

In new tweets on Friday, Trump again questioned prosecutors and accused federal investigators and senior officials of having conflicts of interest, without offering any evidence.

Trump said his lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, would release a response to the report that Mueller is expected to finalize in the coming months.

"We will be doing a major Counter Report to the Mueller Report," Trump tweeted.

Representatives for the U.S. Justice Department and Mueller's office declined to comment on Trump's tweets.

CNN's New York offices and studios have been evacuated due to a phoned bomb threat, the company said.
Several fire alarm bells rang inside CNN's New York newsroom, signaling an evacuation shortly after 10:30 p.m. Staffers evacuated the building and Don Lemon's "CNN Tonight" was taken off the air. In the meantime, the network has gone to taped programming. 
Numerous police and fire department trucks have blocked all vehicle and pedestrian traffic on West 58th Street between 8th and 9th Avenue due to a police investigation at Columbus Circle, where the Time Warner Center is located, the New York Police Department tweeted.
The network's bureau in the Time Warner Center was evacuated in October after a package with an explosive device, addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, was discovered, officials said.

Apple Cider Vinegar .... Who Knew???


Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is commonly used in salad dressings and as a secret ingredient to liven up other dishes. Even just a spoonful of ACV added to a cake recipe can make it come out fluffier and lighter every time! ACV certainly comes in handy in the kitchen, but it can also help you out in just about every other aspect of your life.
From helping lower blood sugar levels to using it as a natural house cleaner, here are some of the most surprising uses for apple cider vinegar!

Helps Ease Cold Symptoms

Apple cider vinegar just might be your saving grace the next time you have a cold. Sooth your sore throat by gargling a diluted solution of ACV and dissolved table salt. This will kill bacteria and help you feel better faster.
You can unclog a stuffy nose by sitting in front of a bowl of hot, steamy water that has ACV in it. The scent and steam will clear up blocked nasal passages caused by a cold, allergies, or sinus infections.

Works As A Natural House Cleaner

Apple cider vinegar works well as a natural alternative to every-day bathroom and kitchen cleaners made with harsh chemicals. Its active cleaning agent is acetic acid, which is safe for most surfaces and kills bacteria on a cellular level.
As well as removing dirt and grime, ACV can effectively kill mold and E. coli when combined with table salt or hydrogen peroxide. Just be sure mix in a gallon of water for every cup of ACV that you use.

Lowers Blood Sugar Levels

Apple cider vinegar has scientifically proven in a small study to aid patients with type 2 diabetes and those with high blood sugar. ACV works to improve’s the body’s insulin sensitivity to meals that are high in refined carbs and sugars. Just a couple spoonfuls of ACV before bedtime can work wonders for you by morning. Just be sure to check with your doctor if incorporating apple cider vinegar in place of blood-sugar-lowering medications will be safe for you.

Useful As A Weight Loss Aid

There are also some studies that have found apple cider vinegar useful to those who are trying to lose weight. A tablespoon of ACV taken before a meal can make you feel fuller and end up eating a bit less than you normally would.
In addition to lowering blood sugar levels, ACV may be effective for people who are at risk of developing diabetes. This is why ACV could make a great supplement to your current diet and exercise routine.
Well I learned something valuable. Up to now, I have only used ACV in a few recipes. Gonna buy me a gallon.
