As I mentioned in yesterdays lead post despite a great month for traffic we not only had a horrible month at DaTipJar but we are a full $15K shy of our annual goal this year, so when I got a change to pick up an extra shift of overtime even though it would make 8 straight days of work I jumped at it.
When I left the Flynn plea was the big news. All over the MSM stories were going out that this was the beginning of the end for Trump. ABC reported that Flynn would testify that candidate Trump asked him to contact the Russians. This was going to be a game changer. In fact even though Mitch McConnell had said he had the vote to pass the Trump Tax bill the prospect of the left getting what they want had already caused the market to crash and had the potential to persuade a weak “yes” to defect and to top it all off the killer of Katie Steinle had been acquitted in what was instantly painted as a defeat for Donald Trump. The entire left was in a state of orgasmic euphoria
Little did I know that by the time I came home it would all change.
On ABC’s world news tonight an anouncement was made that included one detail about the Flynn statement that was left out of the original report.
ABC News spokesperson tells me that “World News” will clarify that this should be president-elect Trump, not candidate Trump. https://t.co/Xm0BuvAstj

In other words the big scoop is that the president elect told Flynn to reach out to Russia, not during the campaign but after the election.
So much for “collusion. The air came out of the left faster than an inner tube left in a porcupine farm.
Alas for Joy Behar who read the original ABC story on the air on the view this correction took place too late for her to set the record straight on the air. Oddly enough she hasn’t tweeted since the correction was made
I’m sure given the embarrassment he has caused ABC once again, they might have considered firing Brian Ross, but with Pervnado winds still blowing though the MSM reporters who have not been accused or suspected of sexual misconduct, even incompetent ones, are at a premium so odds are he survives.
And if that wasn’t enough the Steinle trial victory proved very short lived
An amended federal arrest warrant has been released for Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, a Mexican man acquitted Thursday in the killing of a woman on a San Francisco pier, a case that’s sparked national debate over immigration.
The warrant says Zarate violated his supervised release on a federal sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. by possessing the gun that killed Kate Steinle on July 1, 2015. The warrant was originally issued July 14 of that year but an amended warrant was unsealed Friday following the verdict.
The warrant issued by the U.S. District Court for the western district of Texas says Zarate was sentenced in Texas on May 12, 2011 to 46 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for illegally re-entering the U.S.
The warrant says the terms of the supervised release, which began March 26, 2015, barred Zarate from committing another crime and from possessing a firearm. He was still bound to the terms of that release when Steinle was shot and killed. Though he was acquitted of murder Thursday, he was found guilty of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
So not only does Zarate not go free with time served but he has to be turned over to the Feds, TEXAS feds and yet another round of leftist moping.
And then came the final straw, when I came home after midnight the TV had been left on the Senate channel and I watched the final defeat of the day for the Democrats as just after 1 AM the Senate by a 51-49 vote passed the Tax bill handing Trump and the GOP a badly needed legislative victory.
The twitter outrage was palatable as the left screamed and shouted their frustration to no avail. I can see why they are so upset
In a mere 8 hours the left went from believing they finally had the moment they’ve been waiting for since the day after the election to seeing it go up in smoke.
I’d feel more sorry for them, but that’s what they get for believing the MSM’s fake news.
I’m sure I’ll get sick of all this winning, I just haven’t figured out when.
The Good News is that we are on the verge of passing our hit number for last year (not bad for a site that doesn’t auto reload) and that we already have beaten last year’s number of unique visitors by 10,000+ people.
The bad news is we are also on the verge of missing our annual goal by over $15,000
