Trump’s First Year Was a Successful War on Obama’s Eight
Post Date: 2018-01-28 15:27:02 by Gatlin
If you wanted to celebrate Donald Trumps first full year in office, there are a number of ways you could go about it. You could talk about how he presided over one of the most remarkable economic boom periods in recent American memory, all but erasing the stain of the Great Recession. You could talk about how he let the military loose on ISIS, finally destroying the last remnants of their so-called Caliphate in Syria and Iraq. Or you could talk about the recently-passed tax reform bill, which will give millions of Americans immediate, important relief from the long arm of the IRS. You could even start and stop with the nomination and confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil ...
Trump's 'go-yuuuuge' 'in-their-face' DACA deal
Post Date: 2018-01-27 08:52:59 by Gatlin
President Trump's proposed deal with the Democrats on legalizing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients in exchange for a border wall, an end to the visa lottery, and an end to chain migration, is drawing some cautions from the right, as Ed Straker's piece on radio host Mark Levin's thoughts shows. But I think another radio host, Bill Mitchell, paints what's going on better. Far from this being a classic Republican cave-in, the DACA proposal probably a clever Trumpian deal to outsmart the Democrats and leave them out on their ear. After all, while ending illegal immigration and restoring rule of law is important to conservatives, it's not going to be easy ...

Glass ceilings, indeed. Wasnt Hillary Clintons entire expressed raison dêtre based on her pledge to elevate women so that they didnt have to get exploited like this? Her Wokeness might have a tough time explaining this away: A senior adviser to Hillary Clintons 2008 presidential campaign who was accused of repeatedly sexually harassing a young subordinate was kept on the campaign at Mrs. Clintons request, according to four people familiar with what took place. Mrs. Clintons campaign manager at the time recommended that she fire the adviser, Burns Strider. But Mrs. Clinton did not. Instead, Mr. Strider was docked several weeks of pay and ...

Top Ten Reasons to Celebrate Trump’s First Year
Post Date: 2018-01-22 08:12:16 by Gatlin
In the movie, The Post, Meryl Streeps character shares a sobering thought, Newspapers are the first draft of history. Their mission is critical to our republic; newspapers are to serve the public, not those who govern. They have a responsibility to be truth tellers no matter who is in office, but its easier to report negative news about a president you do not support. In the movie, Nixon was in the crosshairs, but the Pentagon Papers focused on actions and lies by Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson before Nixon was president.Is it the medias responsibility to also cover the accomplishments of presidents they do not like?

The Republican Rally
Post Date: 2018-01-21 17:53:38 by Tooconservative
The Republican tax cut is resulting in tangible benefits for workers more quickly than even many of its supporters expected. Bolstering an already-improving U.S. economy, it is starting to exert an equally powerful influence on U.S. politics. To be sure, President Donald Trump still suffers from low approval ratings. Based on approval ratings one year into a first term, Trump is the most unpopular president since at least Harry Truman, notes Harry Enten of the website FiveThirtyEight today. But there are interesting trends in political polling data. Mr. Enten explains: The anniversary of President Trumps inauguration is Saturday, and he is ending his first year on an ...

Dick Durbin Attacks The President Over Chain Migration! Democratic Senator Dick Durbin who first helped spread the rumor of Trumps sh*thole comments, attacked the President for using the term chain migration because its painful to black people. Chain migration is when someone comes into this country and tries to bring their family and everyone they know with them. However, according to Durbin, chains remind black people of when they were brought here as slaves from Africa. When it came to the issue of chain migration, I said to the president: Do you realize how painful that term is ...

Senator Rand Paul Speaks of Living Hell After Vicious Attack by Leftist Neighbor January 8, 2018| by Donn Marten 2017 will go down in history as the year that political violence became acceptable to the left as well as to Democrats who refused to disavow it. It was the year of black-clad ANTIFA thugs beating up Trump supporters, the year that a deranged and angry Bernie Sanders supporter named James T. Hodgkinson tired to massacre the entire Republican congressional baseball team and the year that a sitting senator was viciously attacked from behind by a neighbor while mowing the lawn. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul was the victim of Rene Boucher who tackled him, ...

By Jessica Chasmar - The Washington Times - Friday, January 12, 2018 Outgoing Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe said Thursday that he would punch President Trump if he ever tried to get in my space. During an interview Thursday on MSNBCs Hardball, host Chris Matthews asked the Virginia Democrat how he would react if Mr. Trump leaned over him during a debate, as he did with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. (Mrs. Clinton later said that the then-presidential candidate used his size to intimidate her.) What would you do in a debate with him if he tried that? Mr. Matthews asked.

They are however spreading their failing and dying libertarian philosophy less as time goes by....thank the good Lord for that. While Ron Paul has never been able to deliver on his promises or to satisfy any of the Paultards expectations, a very small number of cultish supporters strive hard to keep his reactionary views and fading memory alive.

The GOP Is in Full-On Panic Mode, and We Get to Watch
Post Date: 2018-01-06 18:24:35 by Willie Green
Are we on the slippery slope toward autocracy? David Atkins says things changed this week:In the year since Donald Trump moved into the White House, one of the key questions was how long the institutions of American democracy would hold up if he tried to create an authoritarian state centered around himself. For a long time things seemed to be largely OK: the institutions of state were mostly able to resist Trumps incursions into their necessary roles and perform their duties more or less as intended.
.But all of that started to change this week
.Republican Senators who began last year by pretending to want investigations into Russias interference in the election are ...
Did the FBI conspire to stop Trump?
Post Date: 2017-12-26 22:01:30 by Gatlin
The original question the FBI investigation of the Trump campaign was to answer was a simple one: Did he do it? Did Trump, or officials with his knowledge, collude with Vladimir Putins Russia to hack the emails of John Podesta and the DNC, and leak the contents to damage Hillary Clinton and elect Donald Trump? A year-and-a-half into the investigation, and, still, no collusion has been found. Yet the investigation goes on, at the demand of the never-Trump media and Beltway establishment. Hence, and understandably, suspicions have arisen. Are the investigators after the truth, or are they after Trump? Set aside the Trump-Putin conspiracy theory momentarily, and ...
Ron Paul: Trump may be vulnerable to 2020 GOP primary challenge
Post Date: 2017-12-26 21:45:25 by Gatlin
Former Texas Rep. Ron Paul says a yearlong economic boom under President Trump is a bit of an illusion and that debt, inflation, and inequality could cause turmoil that benefits a hardcore nucleus of libertarians. The libertarian Republican leader told the Washington Examiner that Trump could face a strong challenger in the 2020 GOP primary, especially if things are really much worse." The big opening for us is the fact that this system is coming apart. Were on the verge of something like what happened in 89 when the Soviet system just collapsed, he said. Im just hoping our system comes apart as gracefully as the ...

With the passage of the GOP tax bill this week, the Trump administration has scored 81 major achievements in its first year, making good on campaign promises to provide significant tax cuts, boost U.S. energy production, and restore respect to the United States, according to the White House.

According to the White House, the 81 accomplishments are in 12 major ...

Alabama Senate Race: MILITARY BALLOTS May Give Roy Moore the Victory
Post Date: 2017-12-16 00:35:52 by Gatlin
So, leftists called Roy Moore crazy for not conceding the recent election in Alabama. But thanks to military of Alabamas overwhelmingly support Moore, he might not be that crazy after all. According to a report by NewsMax: Over 18,000 servicemen come from the great state of Alabama, and their absentee ballots just came in. This is bad news for Democrats, because Doug Jones chances arent looking good. According to the State Board of Elections, 16,323 votes came across for Roy Moore while only 1,130 soldiers voted for Jones. While Moore hasnt won yet, this does provide him some wiggle room. Further, voter fraud has been reported, as some Millennials stated ...
There Is Nothing More Despicable Than a Democrat
Post Date: 2017-12-14 08:23:57 by Gatlin
On a normal day, Democrats will endlessly lecture you in the most condescending fashion, making liberal use of the preface, You see. Because, of course, you dont see, you are a nonbeliever, a denier, and therefore a deplorable, barely deserving of their passing glance, much less their particular attention. And thats after theyve lost both houses of Congress and the presidency. Now with the Moore mauling in Alabama and their plot to force Trumps resignation, they are not nearly as nice. After sacrificing two of their pawns, the now onanistic Bill Clinton and the truly deplorable Al Franken, an oleaginous blob of despicability -- he of the ...
JUST IN: GOP Takes Charge, Democrats Seethe As “Provable Evidence” Sent To DOJ
Post Date: 2017-12-14 01:00:39 by Gatlin
Democrat Representative Elijah Cummings spent 19 years practicing law and demands that the House Oversight Committee, of which he is ranking Democrat chair, is the proper place for hearing claims against the president. Cummings, whose Maryland congressional district is heavily gerrymandered to make him impossible to unseat, seeks to use the committee to make political hay of claims against Trump, rather than allowing an honest investigation into the claims. As Al Frankens replacement is being named and John Conyers is vacating his seat, it seems that Democrats are pushing on the idea that Trump should be investigated as well. They have made the demand of Trey Gowdy, a Republican ...
