Elijah Cummings, breaking with House Democrats, has stated he will attend the Inauguration of Donald Trump, stating the Inauguration is an issue that is bigger than Donald Trump. 

I rarely, if ever, have agreed with Cummings on anything of importance.  But, I will have to acknowledge that he is one Democrat in Congress who still has some class. 

Q. Do you think there will be riots and ugly protests during the Inauguration, parade and balls?  (Flora ~ Redding, CA)
A. I definitely think there will be strong protests all weekend.  I think there will an attempt at full-blown riots and if so, I hope every last one of them is arrested and charged to the fullest extent of the law.  I also pray for the Secret Service to keep President Trump safe. 

Q. What was Obama’s single greatest achievement in office?  (Lena ~ Vancouver, WA)
A. Convincing Americans that his obviously faked birth certificate wasn’t. 

Q. Will Trump ever grow up and quit Tweeting?  (Jackson ~ Lodi, CA)
A. He recently said that he doesn’t particularly like Tweeting, but he has to get his message out against a dishonest media.  That’s what the real rub is with the Democrats; they want to silence him through their radically-controlled left-wing media and he won’t be buffaloed.

Just sign up with a San Francisco firm that’s offering $2,500 for protesters to go to the inauguration. 

Well, you do have to agree to participate on some more protests as the year goes on, but the retainer is $2,500 and you make $50 an hour.  The ad does not specify whether or not you need to bring your own torches, rocks, billy clubs or guns.  Check it out:

Q. How do you feel about the 50 or so Democrats who are refusing to go to the inauguration?  (Flip ~ Las Vegas, NV)
A. Who cares?  I mean… if they want to make asses out of themselves, that’s their business. 

Q. Do I understand correctly that the State of California published the names and private information of every firearms instructor in the State?  (Bev ~ San Mateo, CA)
A. Well, that’s the meat of it, with some explanation.  3,424 firearms instructors did have their personal information released as a result of a Public Records Act Request filed by an NPR reporter.  The law provides that any such information released must have private information deleted, but the information provided by the State did not.  For some mysterious reason, the State did not notify anybody about the fact until two months after it became aware of the problem.  

Q. Why did Ted Cruz flatly turn down any Supreme Court nomination by Trump?  (Reggie ~ Hurricane, UT)
A. Probably because he'd have to become honest.

The Clinton Global Initiative, the fundraising arm of the Clinton Foundation, has announced it is closing its doors effect April 15th. 

It appears that the millions of dollars in contributions to the foundation are drying up due to the fact that contributions will no longer produce “pay to play” political and monetary favors on the part of the Clintons.  The only question remaining, I suppose, is who is going to end up with all of the money in the foundation’s coffers. 

Q. Microsoft is about to stick it to millions of Windows users around the world.  They are saying that Windows 7 doesn’t have the necessary security features and that you must upgrade to Windows 10 immediately.   Why don’t they just fix the security issues?  (Leon ~ Magalia, CA)
A. If you upgrade to Windows 10, some of your Windows-based software will no longer function, which means you also have to buy more new software and they make more money.  I refer to it as a “bend over” marketing ploy.  That’s what happens when corporations get too big and powerful; they stick it to the customer.  Yes, like you, I’m outraged.  When they get that kind of attitude, they should be put out of business.  

Q. I can’t believe my ears.  Military bases are refusing to accept some state-issued identifications to allow access to the bases?   What’s wrong with those states?  (Cooper ~ Providence, RI)
A. The military justifiably requires that state issued i.d. cards have sufficient security measures to back them up as being reliable forms of identification.   Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Pennsylvania and Washington are not now accepted; Illinois, New Mexico and South Carolina are in the process of being added.  Another 16 could potentially be added by the end of the year. 

Q. Do you really think Trump might shut the White House Press Corps down?  (Di ~ Bridgeport, CA)
A. It would not surprise me to see some “attitude readjustments,” but Trump needs the press to communicate above and beyond his Twitter account.   If the press and the media of this country don’t quickly come to the realization that Americans are sick and tired of their bullshit, they are going to have a very rude awakening when we start boycotting their advertisers.

Florida State Senator Evan Jenne, when discussing a change to Florida’s laws to allow citizens to carry concealed guns in unsecured areas of airports, said armed citizens would create more chaos rather than safety.  He further stepped into the bucket by saying cops might be confused when arriving at a crime scene by who was the good guy and who was the bad guy. 

When you obtain a concealed weapons permit, you should learn just how to handle that situation: When the cops arrive, you totally turn control of the scene over to them and immediately let them know you have a permit, you put your weapon down and back away from it and/or, as the case may be, ask them for further instructions.  The last thing you want to do is to get yourself shot in the process or to confuse the cop; disarm that question immediately, because if you are unarmed that’s one less worry the cop has to deal with.  Now, if the distinguished Senator had inquired about the protocol before flapping off at the gums, he probably wouldn’t look so much like a fool. 

Q. Why did FOX NEWS anchor Shepard Smith attack Trump?  (Lili ~ San Francisco, CA)
A. Trump took CNN to task over its fake news reporting about a “secret Russian connection” that did not exist.  Smith exclaimed, “Though we at Fox News cannot confirm CNN’s report, it is our observation that its correspondents follow journalistic standards and that neither they nor any other journalists should be subjected to belittling or de-legitimizing by the President-elect of the United States.”  Like ex-FOX diva Megyn Kelly, Smith despises Trump.  He has now come out of the closet in more ways than one. 

Q. Since [today] is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, how do you think he would evaluate Obama’s presidency?  (Gabby ~ Tucson, AZ)
A. I was unable to obtain an answer to that question; King is much too busy spinning over and over again in his grave.   

Q. Why is Obama so relentlessly still trying to destroy Benjamin Netanyahu?  (Sylvester ~ Campbell, CA)
A. Number one, because Netanyahu is Jewish and Muslims hate Jews.  Number two, because Netanyahu had the guts and fortitude to stand up to him and to tell it like it really is with the Iranian nuke program.

Apparently afraid that they might be sent to prison for being here illegally or that their families might be split up, illegals are leaving the U.S. and returning home.  Mexican cities are preparing for an influx of people returning both voluntarily and through U.S. deportation. 


And that is the way that it should be. 


Q. Any reaction to Rudy Giuliani being named to head up Trump’s cybersecurity task force?  (Charles ~ Sunnyvale, CA)
A. Before I can answer that, I need your password, fingerprint, DNA and a picture of your eyeball. 

Q. How do you feel about the DOJ opening a probe into whether or not Comey and the FBI used proper procedures during Clinton’s email probes?  (Vicki ~ Glendale, AZ)
A. Don’t get your hopes up; the DOJ is still infested with left-wing liberals who don’t give a damn what the laws say or what is ethically right.   

Q. The liberals want Americans to boycott L.L. Bean because Linda Bean donated to a Trump Super-PAC.  I thought people had a right to speak their minds and exercise their own freedom of choice in political candidates?  (Sebastiano ~ Rosemont, IL)
A. Not according to the liberal playbook.  You deserve 50 lashes with a wet noodle; in fact, they’d probably do a 180 and demand that you be water-boarded.

Florida’s Senator and former presidential candidate Marco Rubio made his political philosophies clear when he went after Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State Wednesday during confirmation hearings.  Tillerson responded to a question by saying he would not classify Vladimir Putin as being a “war criminal.”  “I would want to have much more information before reaching a conclusion,” Tillerson said.  Rubio expressed dismay at Tillerson’s response and cited a litany of things Putin has done which should qualify him to be called a war criminal. 

If Marco still thinks he is God’s gift to America, I wonder why he didn’t win the Republican nomination.  Nor will he if he runs again in either 2020 or 2024. 

Q. Did you notice that daughter Sasha was noticeably missing from Obama’s farewell lecture the other night?  (Fergie ~ Elsinore, CA)
A. Actually, I didn’t watch it; I had far better things to do, such as watching tortoise races on Animal Planet.  Word has it that she was home studying for a science exam and dissecting frogs. 

Q. What’s your opinion on the Senate confirmation hearings so far?  (Shannon ~ Casper, WY)
A. So much drama, so little substance.   

Q. VW has pleaded guilty in its emissions scandal.  So, why are they allowed to continue doing business in this country?  (Spike ~ Socorro, NM)
A. Does it bug you?  Are you suffering from too many beetles?  They’re going to pay $4.3 billion in fines and penalties.  That money can be used to purchase four hammers and nine toilet seats for the Pentagon.   

“The relentless invisible storm of radio signals and electronic particles, the hustle and bustle and the billions of petrol explosions in the engine blocks of trucks and cars seem to churn up the molecules of life and heaven so violently that the beautiful fogs are unable to hold together like they once did.” ~ Michael Leunig
