The ten tracks mix standards and originals, including “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” and the ballad “That Spirit of Christmas,” which was featured in the movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. The Spirit of Christmas is perfect background music for any holiday celebration.

  1. Hey, Chicas!

    Jay broke his finger. He and another little boy at school were playing football and somehow Jay’s finger was bent back and broken. School nurse called and said she was sure it was broken because it started swelling immediately. His dad took him to Dr and it’s broken. Right before Christmas. 😢😢😢

    Penny Marshall, star of ‘Laverne & Shirley’ and director of films such as ‘Big,’ dies at 75
    Marshall died Monday at her Hollywood Hills home due to complications from diabetes, her publicist confirmed in a statement.

    She parlayed her fame into a career directing crowd-pleasing movies such as “Big” and “A League of Their Own,” making her the first woman to helm movies that earned more than $100 million.

    There is a poster at another blog who is an attorney. When we were in the depths of despair last year, she said bluntly, after it was clear that the GOP had abdicated their Constitutional Role…

    The courts and the justice system are our only hope.

    When it all first began, she often pointed out that Dolt45 had experience in the CIVIL court, where the penalties for lying are nothing, and that there wasn’t a situation where he couldn’t ‘settle’.

    She pointed out that he had no experience with the CRIMINAL Justice system.

    I remember, when we were getting discouraged, she was like..

    ” The criminal justice system is slow to begin, but Dolt45 doesn’t get it. He doesn’t get that it’s a system that once it gets started, it has a life unto it’s own.”

    She got really happy once Mueller started farming out cases to other folks. To her, it was multiple engines that Dolt45 couldn’t control.

    I thought about her last night while watching LarryO, who opened his show saying that Dolt45 had 17 investigations targeting him.

    17.

    17 engines going on their own.

    The White House wants to avoid a partial government shutdown and has found other ways to get the border wall President Trump is demanding, spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Tuesday.

    Sanders’ comments come four days before large portions of the federal government will begin shutting down unless Congress and Trump reach a funding deal.

    But Sanders told Fox News Channel: “We have other ways that we can get to that $5 billion.”

    “At the end of the day we don’t want to shut down the government, we want to shut down the border,” Sanders said.

    Judge asks if Flynn’s conduct is “treasonous activity”
    From CNN’s Katelyn Polantz

    Judge Emmet Sullivan asked in court today if Michael Flynn’s conduct “rises to the level of treasonous activity?”

    Prosecutor Brandon Van Grack, speaking for the special counsel’s office, said prosecutors did not consider charging Flynn with treason.

    DOES THIS LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN FOR FLYNN TO DISCLOSE MORE ON TRUMP, PENCE?

    Then Sullivan asked again: “Could he have been charged with treason?”

    Van Grack wouldn’t go there.

  20. Judge Sullivan harshly admonished Michael Flynn for acting as unregistered agent while serving as the national security adviser, leaving open the possibility of jail time for Flynn.

    “All along, you were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Adviser to the President of the United States. That undermines everything this flag over here stands for. Arguably you sold your country out.”
    Sullivan says he could impose a sentence of incarceration.

    “I am not hiding my disgust, my disdain for your criminal offense,” Sullivan said, straining his voice and taking a brief pause. “Yes, your honor,” Flynn said, though he was not asked a question.

        I’m a retired high school history teacher. The U.S. was the model that was used by Hitler and the Nazis in Germany when they targeted their Jewish citizens. Leaders, politicians, and citizens in other nations look at the way the majority in the U.S. treats its minority group members and replicate that sh*t. We can condemn them, but their government and our government know that when our government does condemn another nation for human rights violations, it’s all BS because our government is still committing human rights violations right here in the good ole USA.

        He tried to push his luck.. He thought he was slick.. but the judge quickly gave him his wake-up call.. set it up so that if he doesn’t give up anything substantial, he’s going to be find himself before long, cozying up to Jimmy the flex or big Timmy in some penitentiary somewhere..

        I still don’t trust that he’s giving up as much as he should… There’s a certain footsie-playing still going on between his son and the treasonous buffoon’s ne’er do well son… And even Michael Flynn himself..

        I believe he’s been trading notes with the treasonous buffoon/his legal team ..and his silly enablers like Guilliani ..just like Mueller found out Manafort had been doing..

      That’s just a start..

      We need much more.. This awful person and arrogant Russian Asset, has gotten away with far too much callous criminality for far too long..

      And the idea that at the moment, he not only gets to inhabit the people’s house, and treat Air Force One like some cheap Groupon Uber deal… but that folks who conveniently never could remember to properly address the legitimately 2X elected historic President with the honorific of that highest office of the land, calling him instead by his last name, and at other times, using the ‘Mr’ prefix to address him, are now falling all over themselves – even as they report the treasonous activities of the buffoon… never ever dare slip up …and always, always careful to reverentially address a treasonous buffoon with an honorific he did not earn, will never deserve …and has debased beyond words, and certainly does not embody..

        Remember, this is the f*cker who thought being president would be easy. He constantly attacked PBO every time PBO opened his mouth. PBO is more honorable and patriotic than Trump could ever wish to be. Every cent PBO has, he earned legitimately. That’s right, Trumpers, legitimately, a word that can never be applied to the lying, dishonest, immature, petty, vindictive, money and p*ssy-grabbing orange @ss that now inhabits our WH.

    That’s the number of investigations that are swirling around Dolt45.

    While I and others were fretful about Schneiderman resigning….in retrospect, it was great for those of us who are interested in Dolt45 and his crime family being taken down.
    Underwood has been kick ass and fabulous.

    I look forward to Attorney General Letitia James. Nobody Black ascends to that level without being clean… Which is why their opponents have to lie about them ( see Gillum and Abrams). James is older than I thought she was. She is truly in the NFTG 🤗 phase of her life, and she is laser focused on the Trump Crime Family 😏😏
