20 Unspoken Rules of Etiquette That Every Southerner Follows

Image result for 20 Unspoken Rules of Etiquette That Every Southerner Follows

There’s social etiquette and then there’s Mama’n’em’s etiquette. None of these rules are written down. Southerners just absorb them through cornbread and the liquid sugarcane we call sweet tea.

We took a quick poll of our Facebook Brain Trust and found some common threads. It should come as no surprise that many Southern rules for proper etiquette revolve around food.

First of all, we’re happy to report that the more draconian dining/entertaining rules for children have loosened considerably over the years. Back in the day, children were to be “seen and not heard” when company came over. Or at the very least “speak only when spoken to.” When Mama entertained the preacher, the young’uns didn’t eat till the good reverend had finished, and he always got the “pulley-bone.”  Nowadays, there’s plenty of Publix fried chicken for everybody. Still, some dining restrictions apply . . . and Mama has other rules, as well.

 Ben Carson says political correctness will 'destroy our nation' when pressed on reported transgender remarks

Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson on Tuesday lambasted political correctness and claimed that it was "going to destroy our nation" after being pressed about remarks he had reportedly made about transgender people during a meeting last month.

Carson denied that he was speaking about transgender people when Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-Va.) asked him during a congressional hearing about whether he wanted to apologize for expressing alarm about "big, hairy men" trying to gain access to women's homeless shelters.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan agreed to create a buffer zone in northern Syria and will remove Kurdish fighters along the border.

After several hours of talks, the two leaders said a “safe zone” would be implemented in northeastern Syria, and they would initiate joint patrols in the area. The announcement comes days after Turkey incurred into northern Syria on Oct. 9 to remove Kurdish fighters that it has described as “terrorists” from the area.

Sen. Grassley Suspects Deep State May Bury ‘Spygate’ Report

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) suspects that the numerous delays of the release of a much-anticipated report on spying on the Trump campaign suggest that the deep state is working to bury the document.

“All of the delays and excuses why the Horowitz IG FISA report isn’t public yet after several months of anticipation of its issues leads me to the suspicion it’s going to be ‘deep six’ by the deep state,” Grassley wrote on Twitter on Oct. 21.

WATCH: Alabama Congressional Candidate Vows To Take On Ocasio-Cortez With Her Own Conservative Squad


 She should be a winner.

Alabama Congressional candidate Jessica Taylor made waves on Monday by kicking off her 2020 campaign with an advertisement vowing to take on socialist Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her so-called “Squad.”

“Like you, I’m tired of arrogant socialists like [Ocasio-Cortez] — who has never even run a lemonade stand — telling us how we should live in Alabama, and more government is the answer,” Taylor said in the campaign video.

Stephen Miller pushback: ‘Permanent bureaucracy a mortal threat to America’

Anonymous efforts by anti-Trump federal bureaucrats to thwart the White House agenda through leaks and complaints to friendly reporters and congressional allies are a “mortal threat” to democracy and the 2016 election results, according to a top administration official.

“This is a mortal threat to the American system of government,” said Stephen Miller, the senior adviser for policy.

In 2016, President Trump ran against Washington’s “deep state” and “permanent bureaucracy,” said Miller, and they remain so angry that they are lying, leaking, and attacking the administration’s agenda.

The latest example is the planned book written by an anonymous inside critic and that follows efforts by bureaucrats to thwart Trump policies with leaks to liberal media and Democrats on Capitol Hill.

In an interview, Miller called inside attacks a “very grave threat,” and he explained it this way:

“It is best understood as career federal employees that believe they are under no obligation to honor, respect, or abide by the results of a democratic election. Their view is, ‘If I agree with what voters choose, then I’ll do what they choose. If I disagree with what voters choose, then I won’t, and I’ll continue doing my own thing. So basically it’s heads I win, tails you lose.

“‘If you elect Hillary Clinton, then I’ll implement all of her policies very faithfully, and if I see massive evidence of corruption on Hillary Clinton’s part, then I’ll keep it all a secret. If you elect a candidate I disagree with, then I’ll lie, I’ll leak, I’ll cheat, I’ll smear, I’ll attack, I’ll persecute, and I will refuse to implement, and I will obstruct at every single step of the way.’”

But, said Miller, Trump’s most loyal nonfamily staffer who also worked on the 2016 election, said that the president isn’t “cowed” by the attacks. In fact, he said the criticisms steel the president.

“We’ve made clear that your leaks will backfire and your sabotage will fail, and we’ll simply implement the policy doubly,” he said. “Not only will you not change the outcome, but the more that you try to leak and disrupt, the more determined the president will be in his course to accomplish that which he was sent here to do,” said Miller.

The top aide, interviewed in his second-floor West Wing office, also mocked insider critics who have been responsible for failed policies, especially in the intelligence, foreign policy, and defense arenas.

“The same people who made wrong judgment calls in Iraq, with respect to strategy in Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, too ... the people who made all these decisions now are so utterly convinced that they alone know what the right policy is,” Miller said.

He portrayed the president as devoted to delivering his campaign promises no matter what is thrown at him.

“Never has someone occupied the Oval Office who is more undeterred and undaunted in executing the task that he was brought here and has pledged to execute,” he said.

Miller added, “A lot of us thought, if you go back many years before Donald Trump ever declared for president, we might never live to see the day when somebody would have the audacity to promise to fundamentally change a broken status quo then get to Washington and proceed to execute on every single thing that he promised to do no matter what was thrown his way. It is truly a miracle to behold.”

Democrats Show Us How Not to Impeach a President

The Democrats have been plotting and planning a coup d’├ętat against President Trump since before he was even elected to office. They’re even trying to make it look like they’re following the Constitution. But they’re not. And in the process, they are creating a dangerous threat to the peaceful transfer of power and the rule of law.

As keen observers of the European powers, the Founders knew that the traditional means of the transfer of political power was through the use of violence and assassination. They had seen the instability and the political chaos that follows abrupt changes in power brought about by force.

Determined to create a better alternative in the nascent nation, one that did not require the shedding of blood, they provided Congress with the tool of impeachment and set a very high threshold for its use.

NC Turncoat Senator Richard Burr to Call in Impeachment Witnesses to Testify – Ignores Biden Crime Family

Via Billy


The corrupt and worthless Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Panel Richard Burr (R-NC) said he will be calling in witnesses to testify about the Trump-Ukraine ‘scandal.’

Rather than question Hunter Biden for his shady dealings with Ukraine and China while his father was US Vice President, Senator Burr is giving legitimacy to Schiff and Pelosi’s sham impeachment inquiry by calling in the same witnesses to answer questions.
 
Burr said the Senate Intel Committee is “already bringing in and scheduling witnesses.”
“Anybody who was in the process, I’m bringing in,” Burr said.

Impeachment Hearings X2

 Mollie Hemingway


“House Democrats’ top impeachment inquisitor abruptly changed from repeatedly insisting on the testimony of a whistleblower against President Donald Trump to working to prevent it,” Mollie Hemingway writes in The Federalist. “Democrats have dramatically switched from demanding transparency about the whistleblower complaint to hiding depositions, transcripts, and evidence.”
“The past several weeks in Washington have shown us the worst of the swamp,” Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA) writes for Fox News. “The people in my district, both Republicans and Democrats, have repeatedly told me they are sick and tired of the way this non-transparent inquiry is going and the fact that Congress fails to do anything other than focus on tearing down the duly-elected president.” 

CROOKS: Lawless Democrats Will No Longer Allow GOP Lawmakers to View Transcripts from Impeachment Hearings (VIDEO)


Speaker Pelosi and the lawless Democrats are running a historic scam on the American people.
 
For the first time in US history Democrat leaders are running a sham impeachment — that was NEVER voted on in the US House of Representatives — and they are holding the entire proceeding in a secret secluded room away from public viewing and away from cameras.

Democrats refuse to allow Republicans ANY CONSIDERATION in the entire process. They will not allow Republicans to call ANY witnesses. Democrats are only leaking tidbits that help them to the media.  And Democrats are NOT EVEN CALLING on their main witness — a partisan anti-Trump CIA officer who was spying on President Trump in the White House and who has NO DIRECT KNOWLEDGE of the president’s specific phone call to the Ukrainian leader. The leaker’s only evidence is hearsay that has already been debunked by the released transcript of the phone call.

U.N. ‘Refugee Resettlement’ flights from Africa begin landing in Germany

This smacks to me like every Democrap statement about needing to protect the border, stop illegals, etc., even as they facilitated more of them coming here. By the time the German people - whose enemedia are even more in the Left's tank than here - grasp they've been sold a bill of goods they'll be stepping over the muzzrats in the streets."

 
 
The United Nations International Organization for Migration (IOM) has announced the ‘first-ever’ charter flight that will transport African migrants directly into Germany, with additional flights already scheduled.

On Tuesday, IOM Ethiopia’s twitter account gleefully posted a video clip showing 154 Somali ‘refugees’ arriving at Kassel airport in the federal state of Hesse.

Judicial Watch: New Benghazi Documents Confirm Clinton Email Cover-Up

 

Judicial Watch today released new Clinton emails on the Benghazi controversy that had been covered up for years and would have exposed Hillary Clinton’s email account if they had been released when the State Department first uncovered them in 2014. The long withheld email, clearly responsive to Judicial Watch’s lawsuit seeking records concerning “talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack,” contains Clinton’s private email address and a conversation about the YouTube video that sparked the Benghazi talking points scandal (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)). This Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit led directly to the disclosure of the Clinton email system in 2015.

Saagar Enjeti: Warren, Buttigieg don't stand a chance against Trump

One of the themes in this show is that money matters a lot, in determining political outcomes, in determining life outcomes...

But when it comes to political campaigns it matters not just how much money you have but where that money is coming from.

We spend a lot of time here talking about the Democratic candidates but one of the things that are often overlooked is who they're going to face in the general election, Donald Trump.

The Republican National Committee put out its numbers. For the money of September yesterday raising 27.3 million dollars. That comes on the heels of the Trump campaign's announcement that it raised 125 million dollars in the third quarter and has nearly 158 million dollars in cash on hand. To put that in perspective that is 6 times what Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren raised in the same period and 10 times that raised by Joe Biden.

It would be easy to dismiss Trump's campaign coffers as that cobbled together by Wall Street but the data tells a very different story. The average donation to the Trump campaign is 44 dollars, mirroring almost exactly the average donation number of Elizabeth Warren. Furthermore, 98.17 percent of those donations, 200 dollars or less. This is fundamentally a grassroots level of fundraising whatever many of you may think about the policies.

GOP Intelligence Committee Members Sound The Alarm On How Secretly Dems Are Leading The Impeachment Process

Via Billy


Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee voiced their concern on Tuesday over how secretly Democrats have been conducting the impeachment process of President Donald Trump.

“This has been a closed-door, unfair, and unprecedented process. Tens of millions of Americans should know that their member of Congress has had no access to any of the transcripts. In fact, no member has been able to read every transcript,” Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) told reporters during the weekly GOP press conference.

House Democrats Block GOP Resolution to Censure Schiff

House Democrats voted late Oct. 21 to set aside a Republican motion to censure House Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) “for conduct that misleads the American people.”

The resolution was introduced by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) and was tabled on a vote of 218–185, thus effectively killing it, at least for now.

Earlier on Oct. 21, President Donald Trump appealed to House members, in a tweet, to “Censure (at least) Corrupt Adam Schiff! After what he got caught doing, any pol who does not so vote cannot be honest … are you listening Dems?”
