I'm more interested in the opinion of the millions of young people out there, struggling to find a good paying job so that they can pay off their tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt and/or start building towards a successful future.

The tariffs on steel and aluminum imposed on imports from Canada, Mexico and Europe — and the promised retaliation from these key US trading partners — will ripple across the American economy.

You could be affected even if your business has nothing to do with rolls of aluminum or slabs of steel.

First, the price of some products that everyone buys will probably go up.

Beyond that, the trade dispute with these major partners isn't likely to stop with these products.

Mexico and the EU have already pledged to retaliate against American products with their own tariffs.

For example when the steel and aluminum tariffs were first announced in March, Europe signaled it was prepared to take action aimed at Harley-Davidson (HOG) motorbikes, bourbon whiskey and Levi's jeans in retaliation. Farmers could also be hit by tariffs imposed on food exports.

Tariffs will probably also hurt the value of your 401(k), since a trade war is typically bad news for American stocks. The Dow was down more than 200 points midday Thursday.

1,100 economists warn that Trump is repeating one of the biggest mistakes of the Great Depression
Bob Bryan
May. 3, 2018, 12:00 PM
More than 1,100 economists, including 14 Nobel laureates, urged President Donald Trump to reverse course on recent trade measures.
The economists drew comparisons between the current tariff measures under Trump and the Smoot-Hawley Act in 1930.
The Smoot-Hawley tariffs helped contribute to the economic hardships of the Great Depression.


Over 1,100 leading economists sent a letter to President Donald Trump urging the president to reverse course on recent trade tactics — lest the US repeat one of the biggest mistakes of the Great Depression.

The letter, organized by the conservative-leaning National Taxpayers Union, warned that recent tariffs and trade protectionism were harmful to the economy. The economists cited a 1930 letter that warned Congress against passing the Smoot-Hawley Act, a large package of tariffs that many studies cite as a major reason for the depth of the Great Depression.

"Congress did not take economists' advice in 1930, and Americans across the country paid the price," the letter says. "The undersigned economists and teachers of economics strongly urge you not to repeat that mistake. Much has changed since 1930 — for example, trade is now significantly more important to our economy — but the fundamental economic principles as explained at the time have not."

The Smoot-Hawley tariffs, much like Trump's measures, were designed as protection for US industries. But they ended up making the situation worse.

Included on the new letter are 14 Nobel laureates and economists from across the political spectrum, including former chairs of the Council of Economic Advisers under Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton.

The letter also quotes the warnings from the 1930 letter, which warns that tariffs raise prices on consumers, damage industries that rely on trade directly or indirectly, hurt the fortunes of American farmers, and lead to retaliatory measures from other countries.

The 1930 letter also painted the tariffs as a threat to national security.

"Finally, we would urge our Government to consider the bitterness which a policy of higher tariffs would inevitably inject into our international relations," the 80-year-old letter read. "A tariff war does not furnish good soil for the growth of world peace."

Trump's tariffs on US allies will shrink the savings Americans gained from tax cuts

The U.S. says it will impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from allies such as Canada, Mexico and the European Union.
While the White House acknowledges that these measures will lead to higher prices, the administration argues the effect will be tiny.
But combined with additional tariffs on Chinese imports and retaliatory steps taken by U.S. allies, economists across the political spectrum agree these levies will have a negative impact.

The 4 Biggest Consequences of Trump's Disastrous Tariff Plan

For starters, the decision could cripple the U.S. economy


International allies, nonpartisan economists, business leaders and others have roundly condemned the decision. So too have Republican lawmakers like Orrin Hatch, Bob Corker, Ben Sasse and even outgoing House Speaker and reluctant Trump critic Paul Ryan. "I disagree with this decision," Ryan wrote in a statement. "Instead of addressing the real problems in the international trade of these products, today's action targets America's allies when we should be working with them to address the unfair trading practices of countries like China. There are better ways to help American workers and consumers. I intend to keep working with the president on those better options."

2. Jobs will be lost

The White House has tried to sell the tariffs as a way to increase American steel and aluminum manufacturing, and thus bring more jobs to those industries. But 50 percent of American steel and aluminum imports came from Canada, Mexico and the EU, and manufactures can’t just snap their fingers to make up what is being lost. Experts estimate that hundreds of thousands of jobs will have to be cut in industries that rely on imported steel and aluminum, outnumbering whatever jobs would be gained manufacturing the metals domestically.

Chief executive of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Tom Donahue wrote a letter to his board of directors on Thursday outlining the damage Trump’s trade policy could do to the economy. If the president ultimately decides to pull out of NAFTA, Donahue estimates as many as 2.6 million jobs could be lost. "The current approach – and the obvious retaliation that will occur in response – poses a serious risk of raising barriers and reducing Americans' access to vital global markets," Donahue wrote according to the Wall Street Journal, which reviewed the memo. "Our businesses will lose customers, workers will lose jobs, and American consumers will lose family income through higher taxes and higher prices."

4. America's relationship with its allies will tkae another massive hit

Trump's decision to impose tariffs on its allies is such a breach of protocol that the administration had to do it under the guise of national security, meaning the United States has labeled its closest allies a threat. "It is simply ridiculous to view any trade with Canada as a national security threat to the US and we will continue to stand up for Canadian workers & Canadian businesses," Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau tweeted on Thursday. Trudeau also said during a news conference that the tariffs mark "a turning point in the Canada-U.S. relationship."

Canada, Mexico and the EU were none too pleased with the news that the Trump administration decided to lift the tariff exemptions, and they're not taking it lying down. Canada has already announced it will impose up to $12.8 billion in tariffs on American steel, aluminum, whiskey, orange juice and other products. "This is the strongest trade action Canada has taken in the post-war era," said Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland.

Donald Trump is ’70s Man. He loves beauty pageants. He puts ketchup on his steak. And he thinks the surest signs of economic might are thriving smokestack industries churning out the raw materials for skyscrapers and locomotives.

Businesses and investors everywhere are on edge as Trump, himself a lifelong builder, is now attempting to translate his industrial-era economic worldview into action. Trump has promised to impose tariffs of 10% on all aluminum imports to the United States, and 25% on all steel imports. The stock market has wobbled on that news, and now Trump’s top economic adviser, former Goldman Sachs president Gary Cohn, has quit in frustration over Trump’s tariffs. Investors have viewed Cohn as the strongest bulwark against economic nationalism that could trigger damaging trade wars, and his departure will undoubtedly unnerve markets further.

“If you don’t have steel, you don’t have a country!” Trump tweeted, in all caps, on March 2. It’s also true that you don’t have a country, or at least a prosperous country, if you don’t have software, data centers, accounting firms and teachers. Yet Trump talks little, if at all, about the segments of the economy that are the biggest source of wealth and power these days. And he seems ready to risk damaging the economy to protect industries that represent a small and declining share of American production.

Number One Again: US Restores Top Ranking As Most Competitive Global Economy, As Democrats Fret
https://townhall.com/tipsheet/guybenson/...conomy-n2487525
Guy Benson Guy Benson | @guypbenson |Posted: Jun 05, 2018 1:40 PM



US voters will differ sharply on whether President Trump has 'made America great again,' but the economy over which he's presiding is undeniably on the upswing -- with several of his key policies playing essential roles in that comeback. The latest piece of data that fortifies America's renewed economic vigor is a surge in international competitiveness, as measured by a closely-watched annual ranking from a Switzerland-based think tank. Following tax reform's burst of hiring and growth, the United States has 'leapfrogged' back into the top slot (via Bloomberg):

The U.S. dethroned Hong Kong to retake first place among the world’s most competitive economies, thanks to faster economic growth and a supportive atmosphere for scientific and technological innovation, according to annual rankings by the Switzerland-based IMD World Competitiveness Center. The U.S., which reclaimed the No. 1 spot for the first time since 2015, scored especially well in international investment, domestic economy and scientific infrastructure sub-categories while earning below-average marks in public finance and prices. The renewed top ranking aligns with the positive U.S. growth narrative over the past year. Growth averaged 2.9 percent in the four quarters through March, versus 2 percent in the prior period.

Meanwhile, in addition to the fabulous May jobs report (which featured the lowest black unemployment rate ever recorded), US consumer confidence spiked to a 17-year high last month -- leading to a surge in consumer spending: "Americans’ spending gathered further momentum in April as incomes continued to rise, a sign consumers could drive stronger economic growth in the second quarter. Personal-consumption expenditures, a measure of household spending on everything from health care to magazines, increased a seasonally adjusted 0.6% in April from the prior month, the Commerce Department said Thursday. That was the largest increase in five months and above the 0.4% rise that economists...expected," the Wall Street Journal reports. The good news doesn't stop there. On President Trump's 500th day in office, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delivered a floor speech highlighting that more than one million American jobs have been created since the passage of tax reform:



"Since President Trump was elected alongside a Republican Congress, the number of Americans who say they’re optimistic about finding a good job has jumped by 25 percentage points. And small business owners report in record numbers that they’re optimistic about prospects of hiring new employees...But as impressive as some of these statistics may be, I think it’s important to keep in mind that these stories are -- at the end of the day -- human stories. More than one million new jobs have been created just since we passed tax reform last December. That’s not an abstract number...These aren’t just economic statistics. They are American men and women who have new chances to support their families and build their lives that they simply did not have under the policies of the previous administration. I’m glad we fought, won -- and will continue to win -- major accomplishments for the middle-class families we represent."

One million new jobs (and counting), a sizable portion of which the CBO attributes directly to the GOP tax law, which every single Democrat in Congress opposed -- making false, apocalyptic predictions to justify their hysterical, knee-jerk resistance. Like Hillary Clinton, they're being proven wrong by actual results, and they're responding with a 'repeal' tantrum. Repealing the tax cuts for middle class families (all income groups received a tax cut) would reduce incomes and hamper economic consequences. Repealing the business tax cuts, which restored American competitiveness, would claw back crucial progress on job creation and wage growth. It's not hard to tell that the robust economic news is now a source of alarm to election-minded Democrats. Here's tre hilarious spin:

The truth? "Jobs report raises GOP hopes for midterms, while worrying Dems:"

A strong jobs report on Friday bolstered the GOP’s argument that the economy is humming under President Trump, raising Republican optimism for the midterms. The economy added 223,000 jobs in May, a bigger than expected number that was coupled with news that unemployment had fallen to 3.8 percent. It extends the good economic news for Trump and the GOP, which has seen a series of favorable jobs reports this year...The president’s party almost always loses congressional seats in the first midterm. At the same time, some acknowledge the economy could help the GOP. “I do think this is the single biggest challenge, by far, faced by the Democrats, and it will determine whether we pick up 30 seats or 50 seats,” Celinda Lake, a Democratic pollster, said of the economy. Democrats need to pick up 23 seats to win control of the House and two seats to seize the Senate. “We have to get ahead on the economy. We’re still behind today,” Lake added. Trump’s job approval rating has picked up this year, and the once-substantial lead that Democrats had on the generic congressional ballot has shrunk.

Why should voters trust Democrats on the economy? Their policies helped contribute to the 2008 meltdown, then choked what should have been a major bounceback with wasteful and destructive policies, leading to the slowest recovery since World War II. After that, they've railed against Republican-led progress, fighting it at every turn. If not for a unified GOP government, our economy would likely still be puttering along. Democrats see all this and wring their hands as Trump gets the credit, with 2018 polling moving accordingly:

I know what you’re thinking, that his numbers are rising and the Dems’ are falling because of Friday’s dynamite jobs report. Not really the case, as it turns out. Here’s Trump, who’s at 44.6 percent today, a number he hasn’t touched since March 12 of last year...In reality, though, only two polls of Trump’s job approval have been conducted since the jobs report came out. One was Rasmussen, which had him at 48 percent but which normally has him several points higher than other pollsters do. The other was Gallup, which put him at a ho-hum 41 percent. His 44.6 percent number is built on a trifecta of polls that came out *before* the jobs report: Reuters, YouGov, and Harvard-Harris all had him at 44-45 percent. And the generic ballot? Not a single poll has been published about that since Friday...Democrats are down to 43 percent even, nearly a full point lower than their next-lowest tally of the Trump era.

A blue wave may yet crash down on the GOP (this distinction is important, and references the late breaker effect that propelled Republicans to a smashing win in 2014), but the roaring economy is unquestionably buoying the GOP's chances.

UPDATE - More promising economic developments, suggesting that America's already-strong trajectory has room for even more improvement:

Good News: The Booming Trump Economy Looks 'Unstoppable'
Matt Vespa

The Democrats said it couldn’t be done. Former President Obama said it takes more than waving a magic wand when it comes to job creation, which is rich because he was no wizard at job creation. With President Trump, jobs are being created. So many jobs—you won’t believe how many jobs. Three million since he was elected. Now, with a solid May jobs report—223,000 jobs created—behind him, the experts are coming around to the conclusion that the Trump economy is not just robust, but “unstoppable. Second quarter growth is projected to be anywhere between 3.6 and 4.6 percent. Put that in your pipe and smoke it (via CNBC):

In the face of persistent fears that the world could be facing a trade war and a synchronized slowdown, the U.S. economy enters June with a good deal of momentum.

Friday's data provided convincing evidence that domestic growth remains intact even if other developed economies are slowing. A better-than-expected nonfarm payrolls report coupled with a convincing uptick in manufacturing and construction activity showed that the second half approaches with a tail wind blowing.

"The fundamentals all look very solid right now," said Gus Faucher, chief economist at PNC. "You've got job growth and wage gains that are supporting consumer spending, and tax cuts as well. There's a little bit of a drag from higher energy prices, but the positives far outweigh that. Business incentives are in good shape."

The day started off with the payrolls report showing a gain of 223,000 in May, well above market expectations of 188,000, and the unemployment rate hitting an 18-year low of 3.8 percent.

Then, the ISM manufacturing index registered a 58.7 reading — representing the percentage of businesses that report expanding conditions — that also topped Wall Street estimates. Finally, the construction spending report showed a monthly gain of 1.8 percent, a full point higher than expectations.

[…]

Already, the Atlanta Fed's GDPNow tracker sees the second quarter rising by 4.8 percent. While the measure also was strongly optimistic on the first quarter as well, at one point estimating 5.4 percent growth, other gauges are positive as well. CNBC's Rapid Update, for instance, puts the April-to-June period at 3.6 percent.

So, yeah—passing that tax reform that has already benefitted over three million workers was terrible. The jobs numbers are awful. Of course, this is what Democrats think. They’re so engulfed in Trump Derangement Syndrome. They’ve become immobile. They looked at the initial poll numbers for the tax reform package. Yes, they were bad, but everyone knew they would get better. When the bonuses were doled out—averaging $1,000 and in some cases, $3,000, to workers, the polls shifted. Over 250 companies have benefitted from this bill. It’s created a better job-creating and investing climate. Small business and consumer confidence levels are at record highs. The president’s approval rating has been ticking up. The generic ballot advantage Democrats had over Republicans has shrunk to single-digits. And now, from the Labor Department, “For the first time on record, the number of American job openings exceeds the number of job seekers.”

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan came out in opposition to President Trump's decision to move ahead with tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the European Union, Canada and Mexico, saying the move "targets America's allies when we should be working with them to address the unfair trading practices of China."



Ignorance isn't bliss once the downside of overspending and deregulation comes into play. A few trump supporters are bragging about the economy that Obama built but their ignorance is directed toward the same policies and actions that relegated Obama to rectify the problem his predecessor created Which BTW happen be another dullard Republican president.

Putting America First Has Made USA No. 1
Stephen Moore Stephen Moore |Posted: Jun 12, 2018 12:01 AM
The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of Townhall.com.


The left is quickly running out of excuses for why Donald Trump's economic policies have caused a boom rather than the bust that they predicted with such great certainty.

Last year, when the U.S. economy began to percolate with faster growth, the media and other Trump haters argued that this simply reflected a pickup in worldwide growth: Trump was riding the wave of what economists were calling "synchronized growth."

But now what do they have to say? The latest indicators are that, as a Wall Street Journal headline reported on June 3: "Global Economic-Growth Story Fades." Japan's growth rate is estimated to have slowed to slightly negative in the first quarter. The European Union was at an anemic 0.4 percent. The pace of global growth is expected to be much slower over the next two years, according to the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

Then there is the outlier: the United States. Here at home, growth is sizzling. Almost all economists now predict a growth rate of above 4 percent for the second quarter of 2018, and Dan Clifton of Strategas, one of the best forecasters of recent times, believes we may hit 5 percent later this year. He points to the surge of investment capital flowing into the United States and how the increased business spending points to several more quarters of this torrid growth. Meanwhile, the rest of the world treads water.

So much for synchronized swimming.

Then there is the argument that Trump's policies have nothing to do with the American prosperity burst. Politico's economics reporter recently published a column insisting that the "GOP tax cut is not why (the) economy is booming." He contemptuously added, "Economist are rolling their eyes at candidates' claims (that Trump's policies inspired faster growth)." Which economists?


As it happens, this is the same gang that was dead wrong about the likelihood of growth in the first place. Now they argue that the tax cuts are just kicking in and can't account for the increased economic activity. But this ignores the anticipatory effect: Businesses are anticipating the tax bill's lower rates on their profits and investments and making decisions accordingly.

Whatever the cause, it is undeniable that America has a new spring in its step. After a decade of malaise, the American economy is the envy of the world today. A recent Bloomberg article reports: "The U.S. dethroned Hong Kong to retake first place among the world's most competitive economies, thanks to faster economic growth and a supportive atmosphere for scientific and technological innovation, according to annual rankings by the Switzerland-based IMD World Competitiveness Center."

But the ultimate judges of all this are the American people -- the voters. They know something big is going on here.

In the years before the 2016 election, about 3 in 10 voters described the economy as good or great. This year, 7 in 10 do. That surge in optimism began immediately after Trump's election and hasn't subsided. The same trend is true for the confidence of small businesses and manufacturing businesses. Up, up and away.

Perhaps the best news of all is to think that maybe Trump's critics are right that the economic thrust from the tax cut hasn't even kicked in yet. If that's true, then buckle up, because we're in for a hell of a ride.

Trump extraordinaire, you know, the master of destruction, 3500 lies, turning Washington upside down and inside out, so if you find these attributes to be redeeming, you just confirm what we smart Liberals knew all along, it doesn't take much to impress some people and their expectations are so low that a senior in high school has a better deposition and intelligence to run this country far greater than Trump.

The Trump Doctrine: 'We're America, Bitch'
Matt Vespa Matt Vespa |

If there is one field where the liberal news media gets all paranoid and totally out of control, it’s foreign policy in the age of Trump. The president is going to start a nuclear war because he tweets. Did anyone really believe that who wasn’t an addict of MSNBC (or is it MSDNC)? He’s not a madman. In fact, President Trump was given much credit by South Korea for brining North Korea to the negotiating table. Discussions about denuclearization and a peace treaty to end the Korean War were also discussed. Kim Jong-un, the murderous dictator of North Korea, also ventured onto South Korean soil to meet President Moon Jae-in, a first since the end of the Korean War. No nuclear war started. At the G-7 Summit in Quebec, yeah—there was some consternation about President Trump’s anti-Obama attitude towards the whole conference. Europe’s balking at U.S. trade policy, which includes tariffs, is a significant point of contention. Long story short; Trump threw a grenade into the dojo of the liberal international order.

If there is also one field for the elite, the condescending slice of America’s academics who were laid waste in 2016, to gripe and moan about the president, it’s foreign policy. The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg wrote a piece about what’s emerging as the Trump Doctrine, which has so far been amorphous and unable to be described. That’s partially how the president wants it, but it could be summed up in three words: “we’re America, bitch,” though this was one of three summations he could best describe after speaking with experts in this field—and with Trump officials:

The Brookings Institution scholar (and frequent Atlantic contributor) Thomas Wright argued in a January 2016 essay that Trump’s views are both discernible and explicable. Wright, who published his analysis at a time when most everyone in the foreign-policy establishment considered Trump’s candidacy to be a farce, wrote that Trump loathes the liberal international order and would work against it as president; he wrote that Trump also dislikes America’s military alliances, and would work against them; he argued that Trump believes in his bones that the global economy is unfair to the U.S.; and, finally, he wrote that Trump has an innate sympathy for “authoritarian strongmen.”

[…]

The third-best encapsulation of the Trump Doctrine, as outlined by a senior administration official over lunch a few weeks ago, is this: “No Friends, No Enemies.” This official explained that he was not describing a variant of the realpolitik notion that the U.S. has only shifting alliances, not permanent friends. Trump, this official said, doesn’t believe that the U.S. should be part of any alliance at all. “We have to explain to him that countries that have worked with us together in the past expect a level of loyalty from us, but he doesn’t believe that this should factor into the equation,” the official said.

The second-best self-description of the Trump Doctrine I heard was this, from a senior national-security official: “Permanent destabilization creates American advantage.” The official who described this to me said Trump believes that keeping allies and adversaries alike perpetually off-balance necessarily benefits the United States, which is still the most powerful country on Earth. When I noted that America’s adversaries seem far less destabilized by Trump than do America’s allies, this official argued for strategic patience. “They’ll see over time that it doesn’t pay to argue with us.”

The best distillation of the Trump Doctrine I heard, though, came from a senior White House official with direct access to the president and his thinking. I was talking to this person several weeks ago, and I said, by way of introduction, that I thought it might perhaps be too early to discern a definitive Trump Doctrine.

“No,” the official said. “There’s definitely a Trump Doctrine.”

“What is it?” I asked. Here is the answer I received:

“The Trump Doctrine is ‘We’re America, Bitch.’ That’s the Trump Doctrine.”

[…]

I asked this official to explain the idea. “Obama apologized to everyone for everything. He felt bad about everything.” President Trump, this official said, “doesn’t feel like he has to apologize for anything America does.” I later asked another senior official, one who rendered the doctrine not as “We’re America, Bitch” but as “We’re America, Bitches,” whether he was aware of the 2004 movie Team America: World Police, whose theme song was “America, F**k Yeah!”

“Of course,” he said, laughing. “The president believes that we’re America, and people can take it or leave it.”


Donald J. Trump
✔
@realDonaldTrump
Sorry, we cannot let our friends, or enemies, take advantage of us on Trade anymore. We must put the American worker first!



Goldberg adds that Wright’s analysis was “prophetic,” as Trump is supposedly cozying up to strongmen, which, by the way, is not an unprecedented move in American foreign policy history. He also notes that maybe there is some inherent quality to it, though Goldberg also says that there’s a delusional aspect to it in the sense that it could end up weakening America by “demoralizing freedom-seeking people around the world.”

This isn’t shocking. America First—how many times was that said on the trail, the inauguration, and even in some speeches today? There’s a new sheriff in town. He’s not Obama. He’s a cheerleader for the nation, and yeah—it’s a take it or leave it proposition. I don’t mind this. I don’t mind “we’re America, bitch.” The country wanted a bomb thrower, someone who would shake the system. That is Donald J. Trump. It’s also an easily marketed and understood message to his base. Let’s coast with this. I don’t mind bonfires. I like watching things burn from time to time and Europe should be wary of trying to go at it alone.

Trump & GOP are pushing Nazi propaganda. Locking up babies. Praising murderous dictators. Demonizing people of color. Attacking every American value and institution. Putting the country and world in grave danger.

And some Dem leaders STILL think playing nice is the way to go?

It’s Undeniable: Trump Is Blessed With Really Stupid Enemies
Kurt Schlichter |Posted: Jul 16, 2018 12:01 AM
The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of Townhall.com.



Donald Trump goes to Europe, scandalizes the Euroweenies, libs, and cruise-shilling grifters of Never Trump, and comes back victorious. He’s about to get his second SCOTUS justice confirmed – all they have on Brett Kavanaugh is that he likes beer and is named “Brett.” In Congress, the Democrats decided to go all in on abolishing ICE because Americans love open borders and welcome MS-13 or something. In the Mueller farce, the Dems decided that the smart play was to publicly run interference for creepy weirdo Peter Strzok when he went on national TV doing his impression of Lotion Boy from Silence of the Lambs.

Hey Pete, what do those Trump voters smell like? Smells like a red wave to me, you insipid weirdo.

How did Trump luck out by getting such hopeless geebos for opponents? It can’t just be chance. At every turn, these dummies choose to lock themselves into the most implausible and indefensible positions imaginable, then push all their chips into the center of the table. It’s almost supernatural – maybe Trump won the intervention of some ancient demon by heading over to the offices of the Weekly Standard and snatching away one of its Never Trump scribblers to use as a virgin sacrifice.

Look, I was not a Trump fan at the beginning – I was anti-Trump but never Never Trump, both because I was Never Hillary and because I wasn’t a Beltway squishboy who would take his white paper and go home when my guy Ted Cruz lost. I just had no idea what to make of Trump at first because he didn’t look like any mainstream Republican I had seen in the last few decades. But then, I soon realized that he didn’t look like any mainstream Republican I had seen in the last few decades because he wasn’t a hapless loser. He was the anti-Jeb!.


I recount my conversion (hilariously, according to such blurb writers as Nick Searcy and David Limbaugh) from being anti-Trump to Trump-curious to pro-Trump in my upcoming book Militant Normals: How Regular Americans Are Rebelling Against the Elite to Reclaim Our Democracy, except I give a lot more detail and use a lot more swears in there. Suffice it to say that my conversion (and that of many others) was based on the undeniable fact that Trump kept his promises and sided with America in a way we haven’t seen from a Republican since Reagan was owning the libs back in the eighties.

How did this guy win, and in doing so crush the avatar of the establishment, the smartest woman in the world, Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit? One of his secrets to success is really no secret at all. It is to embrace the obvious. Unlike our exhausted establishment, Trump rarely holds to bizarre, indefensible positions. You would think that would be an instinctive thing for politicians of both parties – “I know! I’ll adopt stands on issues that won’t make my constituents ask ‘What the hell is wrong with you?’” – but it isn’t. Instead, the establishment has somehow talked itself into taking positions that are so clearly ridiculous that Normals scratch their heads, baffled at what they are being told by their betters via the lapdog liberal media.


Look at NATO. The entire foreign policy establishment is scandalized that Trump says he expects the Europeans to cover their fair share of the NATO nut. Now a normal American is going to think “Yeah, I think they ought to pay their share of their own defense. Sounds reasonable.” But the establishment collectively wets itself – “HE’S DESTROYING THIS ESSENTIAL ALLIANCE BY ASKING THE PEOPLE BENEFITING FROM IT MOST TO ACTUALLY PARTICIPATE IN IT!”


And the Normals (many of whom, like me, actually served in NATO) wonder, “Well, if it’s so essential, why aren’t the allies eager to pay for it?” And the establishment responds, “SHUT UP, RUSSIAN STOOGE! ASKING THE ALLIES TO MAKE NATO MORE EFFECTIVE BY PAYING WHAT THEY PROMISED, WHICH IS STILL A FRACTION OF WHAT THE U.S. PAYS, IS PLAYING RIGHT INTO PUTIN’S HANDS. ALSO, THE EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE SOMEHOW.”

Okay, as an expert on arguments, I must observe that this is a losing argument. Now, I’m not relying on my expertise gained from a quarter century of convincing juries to go my way to say that. I don’t need to. I’m relying on the fact I have actually met normal Americans. This is such a facially idiotic argument that only someone in the establishment could talk himself into believing it.


Here’s a test. Leave DC or New York, drive a few hours out to America, find a random guy on the street and ask, “Hey, don’t you think it’s awful that Trump wants our allies to increase their contributions to their own defense to just about half of what the U.S. pays?” You can safely assume he’ll respond, “Wait, why only half?”

The Normal/Elite disconnect was also in full effect regarding the new SCOTUS dude. The establishment decided it’s going to bork Brett by pointing out that he bought baseball tickets and apparently liked beer in college, like there’s not a significant portion of Americans who wouldn’t be thrilled to have their next justice be nicknamed “Kegmaster K.” And what’s the new fussiness about alcohol, or are they upset because he quaffs brewskis (RUSSIANS!) instead of guzzling chardonnay? The Dems weren’t so picky about partying in 2016 when Stumbles McMyTurn was staggering all over the map.

Well, not in Wisconsin.

Then the establishment attacked Brett’s family for looking like a normal family instead of a traveling freak show. The Kavanaugh kids didn’t have nose rings or teen tatts, and they presumably know which bathroom to use. This, to the establishment, is unforgiveable. To Normal Americans, this constant social warfare against people who don’t want to be sketchy mutants is just more inspiration for more militancy.


The Democrats have also decided that they want to go into November on the platform of abolishing ICE and opening the borders to future Democrat voters from festering Third World hellholes. Perhaps they didn’t read the polls, but Normal Americans – the ones not appearing on CNN, working for Soros-funded agitator collectives, or in college squandering their dads’ money on degrees in Oppression Studies – actually like borders. If Trump’s brain trust gathered together in his palatial Mar-a-Lago estate to concoct a scheme to get the Democrat Party to adopt the most tone-deaf possible platform, they could not have drafted one better than what the Democrats have created for themselves. The Dems ought to be required to report everything they have done lately to the Federal Elections Commission as an in-kind donation to the Republicans in 2018.


And then there is the Mueller/ FBI/Collusion/Treason charade, which has normal people asking, “Is that still a thing?” Yeah, kind of, though it becomes less thingy every day as it becomes obvious that Sad Bassett Hound Mueller and the Conflict-of-Interest Crew’s got no-thing.

The establishment is convinced that Peter Strzok came out of that hearing not looking like a guy who probably has a sex dungeon in his basement. But he totally looked like he has a sex dungeon in his basement, thereby launching a thousand memes of him leering, smirking, and generally channeling Paul Lynde.

Despite the best efforts of borderline mental defectives like Ted Lieu and whoever that dork was who wanted to give Strzok a Purple Heart, this paragon of the establishment came off to Normals as exactly who he is – a skeevy bureaucrat who delights in jamming up other people with the rules he ignores. The FBI Motto is “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity,” and that married serial sexting hack blew two of those just by cavorting with his gal pal. He and his establishment supporters somehow think Normals aren’t going to figure out that if his wife can’t trust him not to nail the chick at the next desk, we can’t trust his explanation for why he didn’t nail the woman with classified material all over her emails who was supposed to be the next president.

One of the secrets of Trump’s success is having really, really stupid enemies, enemies who are so tone-deaf and out-of-touch that they simply cannot adopt commonsense positions that resonate among normal Americans. The establishment instead insists on telling Americans that up is down, black is white, and girls can have penises. Nope. No wonder the Normals have gotten militant, and no wonder a leader like Donald Trump came along with the vision to exploit the opening the establishment left for an outsider to rise and prevail by embracing the obvious.

With political polarization in the US reaching a fever pitch under Donald Trump’s presidency, some Americans have joked that a second civil war could breakout. Townhall’s Kurt Schlichter has taken the idea a step further, however, by actually fantasizing about a second American civil war.

While Schlichter is known for writing bloody war-fantasy literature in the style of erotic Tumblr fan fiction, you can tell the former Army colonel really got the juices flowing in his latest column, titled, “Why Democrats Would Lose the Second Civil War, Too” — which reads like the The Turner Diaries if William Luther Pierce‘s target audience was barely literate, involuntarily celibate survivalists.

4. Schlichter using his own fiction book as evidence that suburban old men with AR-15s from Dick’s Sporting Goods could defeat the US military:

“As my recent novel illustrates, American guerillas with small arms are a deadly threat to the forces of a dictatorship.”

Well said Obama. But that is certainly not what Trump did. He praised Putin over our intelligence agencies, did he not? Trump didn't just listen to Putin. he praised him. And why a closed meeting? Who knows what Trump said then?

I agree with a portion of your narrative 'Nothing changes" We've known for years that we have Americans with no particular agenda but to destroy, obstruct and complain, in this case you've gave notice that you're one of those individuals, who have only complaints and no solutions. What's the old saying Lucky? "When one has no expectation, one will never be disappointed because failure is always their reward" So glad that I stand on principle, ethics and doing your best, something our current administration has fallen very short on.

A majority of Americans, 68 percent, consider Russia either unfriendly or an enemy of the United States, according to a new NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll.

That's a 9 percent increase from one year ago, when 59 percent of Americans said they considered Russia either unfriendly or an enemy, signaling that attitudes toward Russia have worsened amid President Donald Trump's administration and the federal probe into Moscow's interference in the 2016 election.

The Final Air Force One Budget is Here and Trump Just Saved Taxpayers a Ton of Money

The Final Air Force One Budget is Here and Trump Just Saved Taxpayers a Ton of Money

The United States government has reached a final deal with Boeing to build two brand new Air Force One airplanes.

In 2016 shortly after winning the White House, President Trump publicly berated the company for what he believed was overcharging taxpayers. He also threatened to cancel the order.

Now, an official agreement is on paper.

"Yesterday, the United States Air Force awarded a firm fixed price contract to The Boeing Company to design, modify, test, certify, and deliver two Presidential, mission-ready aircraft by 2024. Formal replacement efforts began in 2011 and the new aircraft will replace the current Air Force One planes that are now 31 years old," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Wednesday. "The contract sets the total price for the two completed “Air Force One” replacement aircraft at $3.9 billion, saving the taxpayers over $1.4 billion from the initially proposed $5.3 billion cost-plus contract."

"President Donald J. Trump has emphasized the need to minimize the cost of replacing the two existing Air Force One aircraft," Sanders continued. "Yesterday’s action meets that objective and reflects the President’s commitment to our military and to protecting taxpayer dollars."

President Trump said over the weekend the new planes will be painted red, white and blue. The current design, marine blue, gold and white, was implemented during the Kennedy administration.

Why We Never Get Tired of Winning and Never Trumpers Never Get Tired of Losing
Kurt Schlichter


So, that whole Carter Page FISA warrant thing really went well for the Russia/Trump/Treason/Emoluments Clause Crew – not. The FISA warrant’s probable cause consisted of the urinary dossier which led to Yahoo News stories and back to the urinary dossier in a perfect circle of hackery. It was less probable cause than probable fraud. Basically, the libs backed themselves into defending the notion that it’s cool to use the intelligence community to spy on rivals because of course they should be able to use the intelligence community to spy on rivals because Trump is literally Hitler. As was Romney, and McCain, and all the Bushes, and as will be every Republican presidential aspirant in the future regardless of what he has binders full of. Sounds legit. No wonder those of us who keep saying, “Buy guns and ammunition because the citizenry needs to have a counter-balance to a corrupt establishment’s monopoly on force in society” are now saying, “See, we toldja so.” But that dumb hill is only the latest dumb hill the Never Trump goofs have chosen to die on.

It’s like Groundhog Day with them – every morning they wake up fussy and failing, then every night they go to bed, alone with all their friends, having pushed the latest TRUMP DID THE WORST THING EVER meme only to wake up fussy and failing in the same Trumpian hell again the next morning. Except instead of being funny, they are sad. And instead of waking up to Sonny & Cher crooning “I Got You Babe,” they wake up to Beck singing “Loser.” And it’s dedicated to them.


Look on the bright side, Never Trumpers. Your inability to sell cruises all ends in January 2025. I mean, unless Don Junior wants to take a pay cut.

Ouch. That seems to have made you sad. Maybe another Zima will wash away the pain.

Here’s the reality. In 2016, Normal Americans rebelled against an establishment composed of liberal fascists in government and a hateful cultural elite, as well as their allegedly conservative kept boys who placed their personal positions and prosperity above the people’s interests. As my upcoming book Militant Normals: How Regular Americans Are Rebelling Against the Elite to Reclaim Our Democracy recounts, in the kind of clear, unrestrained prose that goes hand-in-hand with not having to be FCC-language compliant, how the rise of Donald Trump was the inevitable result of a cultural war where our side was desperate for a fighter who would actually take up our banner and win. Remember how Abe Lincoln had to prune the deadwood in the Union Army before he could find a general to lead the fight against the Democrats the last time they tried to win a civil war? Like Ulysses S. Grant, Donald Trump is imperfect, but he fights and he wins.



Remember Trump’s Apocalypse Helsinki? Me neither. What, wasn’t that like a long time ago, you know, around 1 B.S. – Before Stormy? I can’t seem to keep all the things that were finally going to do in Trump straight.

Instead, his tally of wins just keeps growing. Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit is stumbling about her empty mansion in her sexy mumus, tripping over her empty Crown Royal bottles and her broken dreams. The economy is revving up. ISIS is revving down, and the Iraqis are hanging the few dirtbags we bothered capturing. Deregulation is in effect, while gun control isn’t.

On and on goes the list. At this point, Billy Joel could even turn it into one of his terrible songs:

Mueller can’t get evidence to impeach,

The Dem’s Blue Wave falls out of reach,

Paris Accords go down the drain,

Unleashed ICE deals the pain,

SCOTUS, Keystone, a big tax cut,

#MeToo bites Hollywood on the butt,

We’ll never tire of winning…


You get the idea, and if you don’t, go ask your dad who Billy Joel is. (Spoiler: His music was the inspiration for The Handmaid’s Tale).

Donald Trump was incorrect when he promised that we would get tired of all the winning – well, not really incorrect since he was joking. No, we are not tiring of winning. Not even close. Trump, unlike those foes he has vanquished, actually understands Americans. He knows we won’t ever tire of winning because Americans consider winning to be our natural state.

That fact, as Militant Normals viciously and profanely argues, highlights the great difference between American Normals and the elite that seeks to govern them. Normal Americans expect to win – they demand it, because winning is what Americans do. We believe, deeply, that we are better than every other nation and culture on earth, largely based upon the fact that we are. American exceptionalism is the core of our identity. If you ain’t American, you ain’t Adam Schiff.


This is not braggadocio or delusion. We are right to believe it because it is objectively true. Living abroad confirms it, and many of us Normals have spent years abroad, mostly in uniform, cleaning up foreigners’ messes.

But our elites, the snooty people who are supposed to be taking care of our institutions and making them work smoothly for everyone else (in return for prestige, power, and material renumeration) no longer believe in American exceptionalism. This is largely the fault of academia, which the elite controls, training future elitists that their own countrymen suck and that their loyalty should be to an unelected transnational class of like-minded snobs with glowing credentials but no track record of success in actually accomplishing the basic tasks that elites are supposed to accomplish.

And when the society the elite has so woefully mismanaged predictably manifests problems, they don’t look in the mirror and say, “Whoa, we’re screwing up. We had better do a deep personal inventory to correct our shortcomings.” No, they blame the very people on whose behalf they are supposed to be running things. The elite can’t possibly be at fault; it’s got to be that America is flawed. And therefore, losing should be our natural state, because Americans are undeserving of winning.

Yeah, no.

Pay attention, elites. We have considered your kind offer of decline and failure and we have rejected it. Our counteroffer is that we shall continue winning. This is non-negotiable.

See, we Normal Americans like winning, so we’re going to keep on winning. And anyone who doesn’t like it can always try to bring the losing again tomorrow.

Good luck with that.

ROARING: GDP Climbs Above 4 Percent Under Trump

"Real gross domestic product increased at an annual rate of 4.1 percent in the second quarter of 2018, according to the 'advance' estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the first quarter, real GDP increased 2.2 percent," the Commerce Department released. "The increase in real GDP in the second quarter reflected positive contributions from personal consumption expenditures (PCE), exports, nonresidential fixed investment, federal government spending, and state and local government spending that were partly offset by negative contributions from private inventory investment and residential fixed investment. Imports, which are a subtraction in the calculation of GDP, increased."



On the 2016 campaign trail, Trump vowed to bring the economy back to at least four percent growth. Today, that promise has been kept.

Earlier this week, Trump predicted during a workforce development round table at Northeast Iowa Community College that big numbers would be announced today.

"On Friday, the numbers come out, and I don’t know what they are, but there are predictions from 3.8 to 5.3 [percent]. And if somebody would have said that when I was running, if I would have ever even thought that -- you know I've been saying -- frankly, I've been saying we're going to do awfully well, but nobody thought we were going to be this great. We've already hit 3.2 percent," Trump said. "When I took over, those numbers were bad, and they were heading in the wrong direction because of regulation. Really, the taxes were too high. People were leaving the country. Companies were leaving the country. Jobs were -- forget it, they were really being abandoned. And other countries, frankly, were taking advantage of the United States."

Real winning looks like this:

From: http://thehill.com/homenews/administrati...n-of-korean-war

President Trump on Friday thanked North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for “fulfilling a promise” by returning the remains of U.S. soldiers killed in the Korean War.

“At this moment a plane is carrying the remains of some great fallen heroes from America back from the Korean War, they’re coming back to the United States,” Trump said during remarks at the White House focused on the economy.

“I want to thank Chairman Kim for keeping his word,” the president said. “We have many others coming, but I want to thank Chairman Kim in front of the media for fulfilling a promise he made to me. And I’m sure he will continue to fulfill that promise as they search and search and search.”A U.S. military plane departed North Korea on Thursday with the remains, bringing them to a U.S. base in South Korea. The plane is now on its way to the U.S.

Trump said Friday that Vice President Pence will greet families of soldiers killed in the Korean War when the flight from South Korea arrives.

The return of the remains was one of several agreements reached between the two countries during Trump’s summit with Kim in Singapore earlier this year.

Seeing that you have not the intellectual fortitude to define economic success as a whole, you tend to forgo tariffs, tax cuts, inflation and any entity that off set our actual spending power. In laymen terms, were you able to buy a new vehicle, go on vacation, build up your saving account, pay off your mortgage and credit cards etc. or in your case, attempt to brag about a dysfunctional president who's action s failed to impact you in any positive way but so uneducated and unintelligent to understand Trump's base "He loves the stupid and poor White" remember that statement?

CNN analyst Carl Bernstein said Friday it would be “very, very damaging” for President Trump if he knew about his son’s meeting with Russians in Trump Tower before it happened.

Bernstein, the former Washington Post reporter who broke the Watergate story, reported on Thursday that Trump’s former longtime attorney Michael Cohen says Trump had prior knowledge about the June 2016 meeting between his campaign officials and Russians.

“It would be a stunning development if the president of the United States — then about to become the nominee of his party — knew of that meeting in advance because the meeting itself that did take place suggests a kind of collusion in the sense that those present expected to receive information from the Russian participants,” Bernstein said.

“If the president knew about this in advance, it is a very, very damaging piece of information, especially while he and his campaign are under investigation by the special prosecutor,” he added.

6. Wages are increasing

U.S. workers saw the largest increase in wages and benefits since September 2008, according to a new report from the Labor Department on Tuesday.

The employment cost index, a gauge of total compensation for civilian workers, increased 0.6% in the second quarter. The cost of pay and benefits jumped 2.8% in the 12-month period ended in June, the highest yearly growth rate in nearly a decade.

Wages alone gained 2.8% over the past 12 months, which also reflected a near 10-year high.

But wages are flat as people must work two and three jobs to makes ends meet. The tax cut went mostly to the top 1%. The Republicans have destroyed unions so the worker has no bargaining power. Rich guys like Manafort hide their money overseas but at least we caught one of them

Now that you've clean yourself up from the spit and slobber from being so animated, Chris could have cleaned up or define his statement but I find you so hypocritical due to your silence in regard to a man who is destroying the other 49 states. If you read his speech, America isn't really that great when we see people as yourself who can't find it in their vocabulary or mentality to get off their arrogant White hearts by allowing every race, color, ethnicity, gender and whom ever to all enjoy the life promised to ALL Americans. Your difficulties lie in fact that you believe and live in the old antiquated recesses of White men ruling the world. Cuomo, being the descendant of Italian immigrant realizes the fact that we will have a great America when people as yourself go back to the holes and rocks you hid under for decades but crawl out of when Trump came along to attempt to take us back 100 years...…FACT SON, this is 2018 and better than half of the country is now darker and smarter than yourself HHMMMMM I guess I would be upset with facing my potential demise as well. whistle

Matt Vespa

So, we appear to be having a contest this week between the Cuomo brothers concerning who can outdo the other in saying the dumbest thing. CNN’s Chris Cuomo defended Antifa’s violence against police and reporters last weekend, which held a counter-rally to the Alt-Right’s pathetic gathering in Washington D.C. Only around 30 of these white nationalist pieces of trash showed up. With no one to fight, Antifa turned on the press. In Cuomo’s eyes, both sides are wrong to engage in violence, but “It's not about being right in the eyes of the law, but you also have to know what's right and wrong and immoral…That's why people who show up to fight against bigots are not to be judged the same as the bigots, even if they do resort to the same petty violence.”

It was a mess of a commentary, wholly subjective, and could easily lead to some insufferable liberal in Hillary-land to view a pro-life American, or any person with a differing point of view, as a bigot who deserves to get punched in the face. It was total nonsense, but the Cuomo ring on insanity was not done. Chris’s brother, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, trashed America yesterday, saying it was never great because that’s a real winner in political messaging. Cortney has more:

"We're not going to make America great again," Cuomo said at an event for women and girls. "It was never that great."

[…]

"We have not reached greatness," he continued. "We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone."

The pandering is pathetic, but America was never great? Are you kidding me? This perfectly captures how liberals feel about America, and why it’s refreshing that for the first time in nearly a decade we have a cheerleader for the country in the Oval Office; George W. Bush was the same way when he was in office. So, when scores of volunteers cleaned up the debris around ground zero after the 9/11 terror attacks, wept for the fallen, and came together as a nation to show that no act of radical Islamic terrorism could splinter us, we weren’t great. When our forces stormed Normandy and drove the Nazis across Europe in the name of freedom and liberty, America was not great? When America continually clinches the top spot in which nation is the most charitable, that’s not great?


In the minds of liberals, we’re living on the verge of the apocalypse. Why? It’s because their side lost the 2016 election. You guys lost. Get over it. For the rest of us, just because you lose doesn’t meant we’re in the throes of a constitutional crisis, you petulant, condescending cancers of society. With the economy growing, and paychecks rising, things are pretty great. Three million jobs created, the highest consumer and small business confidence ratings in years, and the largest worker pay increase in a decade. Over three million workers from working families got a bonus check averaging $1,000 and over 250 companies have benefitted from the Trump tax cuts. Unemployment is at an 18-year low; black unemployment hit historic lows.

Army Leader Agrees With Trump on Brennan...Calls Him a 'Communist'

The Trump campaign surely didn’t let Gov. Cuomo’s remarks slip under the radar. Lara Trump, Senior Adviser to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., released a statement saying:

Andrew Cuomo showed his true, pessimistic colors when he defamed America as a country that was ‘never that great.’ Yet, the vast majority of Americans believe in America as the ‘last best hope of earth.’ America is not only the most prosperous and generous country to ever exist; it has lifted millions out of poverty and continuously sacrifices for the freedom of others. And President Trump is leading us on the path to greatness like we’ve never seen before, with a booming economy that’s creating millions of jobs, record unemployment and wage growth, the lowest female unemployment in 65 years; as well as new paths to peace, and so much more. Donald Trump’s eternal optimism about America is what people value in a leader committed to delivering real solutions for our country

Three words, folks: Keep America Great!

UPDATE: MSNBC took Cuomo to the woodshed for his America sucks remarks, noting how it glosses over great moments in American history. And if this was an attempt to channel your inner-left-winger, it was a total disaster:

"We're not going to make America great again," Cuomo said at an event for women and girls. "It was never that great."

[…]

"We have not reached greatness," he continued. "We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone."

The pandering is pathetic, but America was never great? Are you kidding me? This perfectly captures how liberals feel about America, and why it’s refreshing that for the first time in nearly a decade we have a cheerleader for the country in the Oval Office; George W. Bush was the same way when he was in office. So, when scores of volunteers cleaned up the debris around ground zero after the 9/11 terror attacks, wept for the fallen, and came together as a nation to show that no act of radical Islamic terrorism could splinter us, we weren’t great. When our forces stormed Normandy and drove the Nazis across Europe in the name of freedom and liberty, America was not great? When America continually clinches the top spot in which nation is the most charitable, that’s not great?


In the minds of liberals, we’re living on the verge of the apocalypse. Why? It’s because their side lost the 2016 election. You guys lost. Get over it. For the rest of us, just because you lose doesn’t meant we’re in the throes of a constitutional crisis, you petulant, condescending cancers of society. With the economy growing, and paychecks rising, things are pretty great. Three million jobs created, the highest consumer and small business confidence ratings in years, and the largest worker pay increase in a decade. Over three million workers from working families got a bonus check averaging $1,000 and over 250 companies have benefitted from the Trump tax cuts. Unemployment is at an 18-year low; black unemployment hit historic lows.

Army Leader Agrees With Trump on Brennan...Calls Him a 'Communist'

The Trump campaign surely didn’t let Gov. Cuomo’s remarks slip under the radar. Lara Trump, Senior Adviser to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., released a statement saying:

Andrew Cuomo showed his true, pessimistic colors when he defamed America as a country that was ‘never that great.’ Yet, the vast majority of Americans believe in America as the ‘last best hope of earth.’ America is not only the most prosperous and generous country to ever exist; it has lifted millions out of poverty and continuously sacrifices for the freedom of others. And President Trump is leading us on the path to greatness like we’ve never seen before, with a booming economy that’s creating millions of jobs, record unemployment and wage growth, the lowest female unemployment in 65 years; as well as new paths to peace, and so much more. Donald Trump’s eternal optimism about America is what people value in a leader committed to delivering real solutions for our country

Three words, folks: Keep America Great!

UPDATE: MSNBC took Cuomo to the woodshed for his America sucks remarks, noting how it glosses over great moments in American history. And if this was an attempt to channel your inner-left-winger, it was a total disaster:

Your problem son is your exposure of ignorances as to what truly make us a great nation.

Former CBS News Reporter Delivers Kill Shot to Liberal Media Narrative That Trump Is Silencing John Brennan

Former CBS News Reporter Delivers Kill Shot to Liberal Media Narrative That Trump Is Silencing John Brennan

Former CIA Director John Brennan no longer has a security clearance. It’s been revoked. He’s out of the club. Oh, and you bet the liberal news media was all over this, once again going into meltdown mode over something that was perfectly within the president’s authority. But like with anything that Trump does, we're always on the verge of a total constitutional crisis…in CNN-land. Guy also wrote that Brennan’s pervasive partisan antics warranted his clearance being revoked. Oh, but it’s all politically motivated, you see (via Politico):

President Donald Trump’s decision to revoke former CIA director John Brennan’s security clearance is a “politically motivated” attempt to silence those who disagree with the president, Brennan said in a New York Times op-ed on Thursday.

“Mr. Trump clearly has become more desperate to protect himself and those close to him,” Brennan said. “which is why he made the politically motivated decision to revoke my security clearance in an attempt to scare into silence others who might dare to challenge him.”

Brennan's op-ed published Thursday, one day after the White House announced the president had revoked the former CIA director's security clearance and placed the clearances of several current and former officials under review. Brennan, who has often been critical of Trump, helmed the intelligence agency from 2013 to 2017.

Wait, you’re saying there’s a campaign to silence you, yet you can still say whatever you want, right? You just did. And the anti-Trump media are going to give you even more media its and exposure over this security clearance nonsense. Former CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson also torpedoed this absurd narrative.

New Poll Results Freaking out Democrats

New Poll Results Freaking out Democrats



The liberal mainstream news media have a narrative about Donald Trump and they do not deviate. The constant refrain is that the President is unhinged, idiotic, tyrannical and especially racist. Recently, the President was labeled a racist when he criticized CNN’s Don Lemon and NBA star LeBron James. Their latest obsession is the new book written by fired White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman.

In the book, Omarosa accuses the President of being a racist and using the “N-word” while hosting The Apprentice on NBC-TV. The President’s inflammatory language was supposedly captured on a tape that has been withheld from the public. Nevertheless, the show’s former producer, Mark Burnett, denied that such a tape exists. The President also tweeted that he doesn’t “have that word in my vocabulary, and never have.”

Despite the denials, the media will continue to focus on Omarosa as a way of damaging the President who they love to hate. According to the Media Research Center, the coverage of the President by the major networks has been extremely biased. At least, 90% of the coverage has been negative, much worse than the positive press they showered on Barack Obama.

In this toxic media environment, it is amazing that a new Rasmussen poll shows that Trump has a 50% overall approval rating. This is higher than Obama’s rating at a similar point in his presidency.

Among the findings is an interesting trend among African American voters. Despite the constant media portrayal of the President as a flaming racist, the August 15, 2018 Rasmussen poll showed that 36% of African American respondents gave the President a positive approval rating. In one year, the President’s African American approval rating increased by 17% in the Rasmussen poll.


This support level is much higher than recent Republican presidential candidates have received. In the last 50 years, the highest level of African American support was received by Richard Nixon in the 1972 election, in which he garnered 18% of the vote, according to national exit polls. Since then it declined significantly to a low of only 4% in 2008.


If President Trump can receive 18% or more of African American votes in the 2020 presidential election, he will score an overwhelming victory. Democrats are petrified of such a scenario, so it will be imperative for party leaders to continue their name calling of Donald Trump. Over the next few years, their constant refrain will be that Donald Trump is a bigot who hates African Americans.

Obviously, the Democrats will work with their ideological partners in the liberal news media to demonize President Trump and portray him as a cruel racist. It is a narrative that will soon ring hollow as African Americans start to enjoy the benefits of the Trump economy.

When more Americans find employment, all races benefit. In fact, under President Trump, the African American unemployment rate has reached a historic low. Since the President took office, food stamp usage has decreased, while home ownership and consumer confidence has increased. When there is robust economic growth, African Americans partake in that success as well.


With the President fighting bad trade deals that shipped jobs overseas, the result will be increased manufacturing and more factory jobs in the United States, benefitting all races, including African Americans. As the stock market has increased over the last 19 months, African Americans have seen their investment and retirement accounts increase in value.


A trend seems to be developing among African American voters who view Donald Trump’s policies as a better alternative than the Democratic Party policies that have led to misery and despair.

In every election, both parties should compete for all votes and no party should have a lock on the support of any community. Unfortunately, over the past few decades, the Democratic Party has taken the African American vote for granted as it has received 90% or more support.

As the urban areas of our country have remained under the exclusive control of the Democratic Party, the results have been horrific. In their communities, millions of African Americans must deal with a high crime rate, blight, gangs, drug trafficking, infrastructure woes, inferior public education, a lack of high paying jobs and extreme poverty.

If the President can provide a roadmap to prosperity for long suffering African Americans, it may start a genuinely constructive political process. True competition for African American votes may take many years to accomplish, but those important first steps may be starting right now.

…[A]s cable news networks debate reports of the existence of a recording of President Donald Trump using a racial slur, a new poll from Rasmussen Reports says that the president's approval rating among African-Americans is at 36 percent, nearly double his support at this time last year.

[…]

But other polls have also shown an increase in support for Trump among African-Americans – albeit a more modest increase than Rasmussen found.

An NAACP poll released on Aug. 7 found that Trump's approval rating was at 21 percent. And a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center in June found Trump's approval rating among blacks at 14 percent.

Although a vast majority of African-Americans still disapprove of Trump's job as president, those numbers represent an improvement from his share of the vote in 2016. No Republican presidential candidate has done better than 12 percent among blacks since Bob Dole in 1996, according to Cornell University's Roper Center.

The old geezer is showing his mental disturbance along with his narcissism, while I find it hypocritical of a party whose only concern, is not of a nation at this stage & time but to stay in control thus ignoring the signs that our POTUS is a crazy lunatic with his hands on the nuclear button. Mr. Putin, for the sake of our nation, don't be unkind to this fool or else he will retaliate, not for his country's sake but his dislike for criticism of any kind, including that of a grieving daughter.

hey Trump, what school or household did you grow up in that taught you to go after your critic with bared teeth and venom adverse to learning to get along with your peers? The pictures displayed below is living proof that one can disagree but one do not have to always act disagreeable. 72 years old and rich but apparently the old saying is accurate "money can buy almost anything, except those thing which are free" one being a decent human being originating at birth and continues with a decent upbringing and lifestyle equivalent to someone that has learned from their mistake. One isn't impervious to hurt, pain and criticism but time and maturity teaches us to ignore ignorance......well, unless you're ignorant yourself. Sunday's sermon today speaks of hurt people, hurting other and Trump is obviously a hurting and sick puppy who only knows one emotion.....meating out pain.

By what rule of ethics &law does a committee chairman tout the order of conduct against the Democrats while a dictator (Trump) submits a candidate whose documents are sealed and not allowed into evidence at a confirmation hearing and those illegal maneuvers are supported by a Republican committee chairman.

Two observations: What would have been done had the Chairman been a Democrat and the same held a majority in one house? Answer, Bill Clinton was brought up for impeachment for a little nookie and lying about it, while the Republicans overlook crime, collusion, obstruction.

Nike vs In-n-Out: The Silent Majority Have Spoken
Wayne Allyn Root



Not all forays into politics are equal. Two companies in the news in the past few days highlight this lesson. The Silent Majority has spoken. This is the story of In-n-Out versus Nike.

Let’s start with In-n-Out Burgers. Liberals decided to call for a national boycott because In-n-Out committed the “sin” of donating to the GOP. How idiotic is the idea of boycotting a company for making a political donation? Almost every company, even the small businesses you buy from, is run by someone who has a political opinion.

Having that opinion is protected by free speech clause of the U.S. Constitution. It’s what America is all about. It’s what so many millions of young Americans have died for on bloody battlefields all over the world.

Most businesses, or their CEOs give political donations. Again, that is protected by free speech. Again, that is as American as apple pie. Most of us never know who the businesses we buy from donates to. Or care. If I like a product, I’ll buy it. I don’t care who you donate to. But boycotting businesses who give to the GOP is idiotic.

First, the GOP controls the Presidency, Senate, House, a large majority of Governors, Lt. Governors and state legislatures. In short, the GOP dominates America. As a matter of fact, polling proves “conservatives” outnumber “liberals” in 47 out of 50 states.

Yet liberals and the liberal media paint us as either “extreme” “racist” “Nazis” or criminals. Liberals are kidding themselves. Pure delusion. Our views are common sense and mainstream. You’re the radical extreme ones. You’re the ones who are out of touch. Fact- we are “the Silent Majority.”


Secondly, the GOP is pro-business, pro-Capitalism, and as Trump has proven (just like Reagan before him) great for the economy, jobs, small business and the average middle class American worker. So, how can it be a “sin” for a business to donate to the GOP. We are benefiting from GOP policies. So are the majority of our customers. That’s precisely why consumer confidence is the highest in 18 years.

Thirdly, polls prove small business owners are the 2nd most optimistic in modern history. Only Reagan made them happier and that was almost four decades ago. Like it or not, the owner of almost every small business you buy from is a Republican and fan of Trump.

So, you think you’re going to boycott all 28 million small businesses in America? For donating to the party that’s great for the economy, helps our businesses succeed? Good luck.

That could be why the In-n-Out boycott failed so disastrously. No one cares about a political donation.

But now we come to corporation number two. Nike. They just made a disastrous decision. And they will pay for it with a massive sales decline and billions in lost stock value. Nike may have fatally damaged itself this week.


Nike didn’t make a political donation. I couldn’t care less about that. But Nike just made former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick the face of their company. That is a combination of stupid, ignorant, offensive and tragic. Nike just sided with what half of America (and all 63 million Trump voters) thinks is a vile, ungrateful, America-hater. Now that’s bad business.

Here’s a guy who had a $150 million contract, but thinks America is “unfair” to minorities. Here’s a guy who spits in the face of vets, cops and our flag. Here’s a guy who gives the black power salute at the US Open days ago- from a luxury box. What a joke. What a clueless hypocrite. What a disgrace to America.

You’d think Nike would have learned from the NFL’s terrible decision to allow players to kneel for our national anthem. The NFL lost hundreds of millions with massive ratings declines, empty seats and lost merchandise sales. Kaepernick was the face of that disaster.

As I write this column, Nike stock is down by billions, thousands of Americans are burning Nike sneakers and millions are vowing to never buy anything from Nike again. Now the same ingrate who almost brought down the NFL will cause massive damage to Nike.

In-n-Out is in great shape. Nike just destroyed a billion-dollar brand. The Silent Majority have spoken.

Let's revisit this subject 6 months from now, you may be absolutely correct but then again, a clock that doesn't work is correct 2 times a day. whistle

In the meantime, ask American farmers and Harley Davidson bike owners, vehicle buyers along with steel workers, what do they think about Trump's tariffs. I bet that they are fuming with anger as you pray that Nike stock go belly up. You've just proven your self worth.....you have no savings or investments son. whistle

DERP: Sen. Booker Demanded These Confidential Kavanaugh Docs Be Released, They Show He Was Against Racial Profiling

Day two of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings were once again riddled with theatrics. Guy will have a more in-depth analysis later, but let’s discuss Sen. Cory Booker’s nonsense stand to release documents supposedly relating to racial profiling that were deemed confidential. He called it his Spartacus moment. Give me a break—it was more 2020 posturing. He didn’t violate a Senate rule by doing this, which comes with the risk of expulsion from the body, though he said he was willing to do so for the sake of the republic. There are not enough eyes to roll on this one. This set off more Democrats whining and complaining about document releases and transparency when, again, everyone knows they’re not going to support this man. They’ve already made up their minds, which is why the Senate GOP shouldn’t entertain their nonsense motions on this front. This clown show over documents lasted nearly an hour (via Fox News):

New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker injected chaos into Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing Thursday by releasing confidential Kavanaugh emails with the backing of fellow Democrats in possible violation of Senate rules, calling it an act of “civil disobedience” and drawing condemnation from the Republicans on the committee.

“I am going to release the e-mail about racial profiling and I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate,” Booker said at the beginning of the third day of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing.

After announcing plans to do so, Booker released 12 pages of emails -- which had been marked "committee confidential" -- online for the public to read. The emails included internal post-9/11 discussions surrounding issues of racial profiling.

The New Jersey Democrat said he would “knowingly” violate the Senate rules to release the emails. Some of the other Democrats on the committee expressed their support for Booker's effort.

Booker on Thursday drew attention to one 2002 email in particular from Kavanaugh that had the subject line “racial profiling.”

In the end, it was cleared prior to its release by the Bush team and the committee, so nice acting job there, Cory. Also, the big bombshell in those documents only showed that Brett Kavanaugh is reasonable, mainstream, and against racial profiling after the 9/11 terror attacks. The documents were from his time in the Bush administration, which has become a focal point for Democrats since they know there are scores of documents, immaterial ones, whose review could delay the whole process (via Daily Caller):


The fury over the documents led to a letdown for Democrats. The documents only demonstrated that in 2002, soon after the 9/11 attacks, Kavanaugh was against the racial profiling of people while working for the Bush White House. Kavanaugh told colleagues in the email that he favors “effective security measures that are race-neutral” for airports, and he is against “race-based” remedies for law enforcement in the aftermath of the attack.

THIS - THE DEAL W/ KAVANAUGH DOCS: Judic. GOP staff just told us...
- Booker violated rules last pm b/c "racial profiling" email was then confidential.
- He then requst'd permiss. for it to be public.
- Committee + Bush team cleared it overnight.
- So was NOT violation this am.

Re: More winning... - 09/07/18 11:18 AM

I'm curious whether or not anyone remembers how the Obama Administration handled leakers? Talk about paranoia!

"According to reports at the time from even New York Times journalists, no administration was tougher on leakers and punishing to the media than Obama’s, a saga reinforced by reporters who have called Trump’s team more forthcoming.

Criticism of Obama’s attacks on the media and leakers did not just come in tweets and TV appearances by journalists but in an official report from the Committee to Protect Journalists, authored by former Washington Post Executive Editor Leonard Downie Jr.

“This is the most closed, control freak administration I’ve ever covered,” said David E. Sanger, veteran chief Washington correspondent of The New York Times, in the report.

USA Today said of the report, it “portrays an administration gripped by strict policies about information flow and paranoid about leaks across all executive branch departments.”

It detailed prosecutions and even the use of lie-detectors on staffers. Some have encouraged Trump to use lie-detector tests on his staff, something he has so far ignored.

While Trump has ripped leakers and the anonymous Times writer of being cowards and traitors, it was Obama who took the war to a higher level by targeting staff and reporters while also cutting out the media to promote its story via social media.

“The administration’s war on leaks and other efforts to control information are the most aggressive I’ve seen since the Nixon administration, when I was one of the editors involved in the Washington Post’s investigation of Watergate. The 30 experienced Washington journalists at a variety of news organizations whom I interviewed for this report could not remember any precedent,” wrote Downie in the report that was criticized by Obama officials.

The campaign was so aggressive it even had a name, said the report: “The Insider Threat Program.”

We are living in an era of democracy versus race, tell us son, would even an eternal rogue recognize this but you Trump supporters are willing to see democracy, equal rights, good jobs, children be placed in prison, KKK members be called good, Black players be criticized for their beliefs while giving billions of dollars to corporations who move out of the country regardless of promises of staying...you've been exposed as a racist who watched a country go from a recession to vibrant economy and now falsely watch a racist attempt to take credit for what he didn't do and allow all the aforementioned policies to go forth for the sake of promoting Trump's dysfunction.

Being a person of technology, we have bar scans that hospital use to identify and distinguish babies/parent, more so son, when you enter certain entities ie. hospital, secured areas, a simple band worn on the wrist identify everything about you. Somehow heartless trump associates were forced to hasitedly round up kids without of benefit of knowing who some of these children were, along with parents or surrogates.

NFL players were verbally and physically threatened by group who disliked the fact that these players exercised their right of free speech, where was the investigation involving even the president himself who instigated the entire racist actions, no investigation (REMEMBER, verbal and physical violence or threats are actually a crime). What is Russia doing to our most honored Constitutional right, the freedom to have our individual voice heard by due process....voting. where are the investigations? The list goes on and on but this idiot falsely believes that the government is designed for his own use and no one else thus the reason that Obama's generated economy continues while the fool spend 95 percent of his time golfing, tweeting, hold KKK ralys (Yes I said rallys) , criticizing Federal workers whose job is to protect American citizens, not Trump. He sits in his office on a daily basis determining who will get fired, blackballed, criticized etc. while our foreign country shake their heads. If all this is winning, we are in worse shape than some of you originally thought 3 years ago. whistle

Nike vs In-n-Out: The Silent Majority Have Spoken
Wayne Allyn Root



Not all forays into politics are equal. Two companies in the news in the past few days highlight this lesson. The Silent Majority has spoken. This is the story of In-n-Out versus Nike.

Let’s start with In-n-Out Burgers. Liberals decided to call for a national boycott because In-n-Out committed the “sin” of donating to the GOP. How idiotic is the idea of boycotting a company for making a political donation? Almost every company, even the small businesses you buy from, is run by someone who has a political opinion.

Having that opinion is protected by free speech clause of the U.S. Constitution. It’s what America is all about. It’s what so many millions of young Americans have died for on bloody battlefields all over the world.

Most businesses, or their CEOs give political donations. Again, that is protected by free speech. Again, that is as American as apple pie. Most of us never know who the businesses we buy from donates to. Or care. If I like a product, I’ll buy it. I don’t care who you donate to. But boycotting businesses who give to the GOP is idiotic.

First, the GOP controls the Presidency, Senate, House, a large majority of Governors, Lt. Governors and state legislatures. In short, the GOP dominates America. As a matter of fact, polling proves “conservatives” outnumber “liberals” in 47 out of 50 states.

Yet liberals and the liberal media paint us as either “extreme” “racist” “Nazis” or criminals. Liberals are kidding themselves. Pure delusion. Our views are common sense and mainstream. You’re the radical extreme ones. You’re the ones who are out of touch. Fact- we are “the Silent Majority.”


Secondly, the GOP is pro-business, pro-Capitalism, and as Trump has proven (just like Reagan before him) great for the economy, jobs, small business and the average middle class American worker. So, how can it be a “sin” for a business to donate to the GOP. We are benefiting from GOP policies. So are the majority of our customers. That’s precisely why consumer confidence is the highest in 18 years.

Thirdly, polls prove small business owners are the 2nd most optimistic in modern history. Only Reagan made them happier and that was almost four decades ago. Like it or not, the owner of almost every small business you buy from is a Republican and fan of Trump.

So, you think you’re going to boycott all 28 million small businesses in America? For donating to the party that’s great for the economy, helps our businesses succeed? Good luck.

That could be why the In-n-Out boycott failed so disastrously. No one cares about a political donation.

But now we come to corporation number two. Nike. They just made a disastrous decision. And they will pay for it with a massive sales decline and billions in lost stock value. Nike may have fatally damaged itself this week.


Nike didn’t make a political donation. I couldn’t care less about that. But Nike just made former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick the face of their company. That is a combination of stupid, ignorant, offensive and tragic. Nike just sided with what half of America (and all 63 million Trump voters) thinks is a vile, ungrateful, America-hater. Now that’s bad business.

Here’s a guy who had a $150 million contract, but thinks America is “unfair” to minorities. Here’s a guy who spits in the face of vets, cops and our flag. Here’s a guy who gives the black power salute at the US Open days ago- from a luxury box. What a joke. What a clueless hypocrite. What a disgrace to America.

You’d think Nike would have learned from the NFL’s terrible decision to allow players to kneel for our national anthem. The NFL lost hundreds of millions with massive ratings declines, empty seats and lost merchandise sales. Kaepernick was the face of that disaster.

As I write this column, Nike stock is down by billions, thousands of Americans are burning Nike sneakers and millions are vowing to never buy anything from Nike again. Now the same ingrate who almost brought down the NFL will cause massive damage to Nike.

In-n-Out is in great shape. Nike just destroyed a billion-dollar brand. The Silent Majority have spoken.



What was the harm that you purported Trump was going to cause Nikes son? Most sport foot apparel wearers are typically young and actives and could care more or less as what this overweight duffus states, in regard to many Trump supporters, a tee shirt showing monster trucks and flags are more favorable, don't believe me? watch a couple crowd videos. whistle

It's no coincidence that Nike's profit jumped 31 percentage while Papa John's stock along with the ouster of it's CEO faltered. When will the racist POTUS and racist anti Black protesters figure out one pertinent factor, when you denigrate & discriminate against women and minorities, what play book are you utilizing in garnering votes, ticket sales and revenue once you disrespect 2/3 of your base. So in line with logic is the fact that a failing president has a good economy but suffers low approval numbers which BTW drop to 34% ,no citation needed, the news is already out there thus poor attempts at any significant rebuttal other than silly cartoons.

I noted the Nike logo on Serena Williams shirt and thought of all the haters against her since day one, predominately many White males, when it's all said and done, when will we keep sports as an entirely separate entity and focus on politics in the white House. Trump has managed to denigrate minorities & women to the extent that they have galvanized themselves which now benefit the Democrats and Nike's sales have skyrocketed. I totally agree that Serena is a sore loser but her message resonates globally, we have double standards when it comes down to politics and sports, new standards which caused Trump's rise but ironically so, double standards being brought to the forefront which now destroys him.

In regard to FEMA, once again, an agency that should know better based on past experiences, you tell your president that this being hurricane season that all resources monetarily or otherwise are needed and it would be advantageous to be ready but once again, a cowardly director along with a ignorant president makes for bad decisions. The fact that this doesn't have logic, appears to make you ignorant seeing that we may have to appropriate more money if the need arise. There is no such thing as being over prepared son, apparently something you've failed to do in your early fifties thus the reason you're still working.

More so, this fact reiterates the fact that Trump's horrible words criticizing Puerto Rico falls on deaf ears being that those people had no place to go seeing that the entire island was devastated.

How many Trump appointees are going to jail? What party fought Obama for 8 years in the name of containing an exorbitant budget only to hypocritically vote for an additional 8 trillion dollars since Trump's election?

Re: More winning... - 09/21/18 08:48 AM

I've lived a great and contented life and could care more or less if I died today but my concerns are for the future generations if we're still here in 20 years. I emphatically believe that hate and difference are eternal and to falsely assume that Trump is the cause is somewhat erroneously false. All trump has done is to allow hidden emotions and mindset to become uninhibited and fashionable to articulate without constriction. What's the fallout? If you are convicted of a crime, it's not a matter if you did but more so, parties galvanizing themselves and pointing a finger toward Conservatism or Liberalism, if there is a shooting, the first question is "What race is the shooter" all together failing to comprehend the fact that another life has been snuffed out or ruin. We as a country have become so hateful and vengeful toward one another that we all have missed the point, why are our children committing suicide, bullying and have a lost of respect and value to life? Let's understand the old premise that "kids do what we do, not hear what we say" Locally on the forum, we have posted primarily cartoons depicting a great party adverse to the "poor" party but ignorantly overlooking the fact that anything done that adversely affect any individual is wrong irrespective of part affiliation, example: when you are victimized, does it matter in regard to party affiliation.....sadly many will say YES!!!!!!! A problem that even Stevey Wonder and see so clearly.

As of July 2016, White Americans are the racial majority. African Americans are the largest racial minority, amounting to an estimated 12.7% of the population. Hispanic and Latino Americans amount to an estimated 17.8% of the total U.S. population, making up the largest ethnic minority. Of the 2010 Census population, 157.0 million were female (50.8 percent) while 151.8 million were male (49.2 percent). Between 2000 and 2010, the male population grew at a slightly faster rate (9.9 percent) than the female population (9.5 percent). As of October 2017, Gallup polling found that 31% of Americans identified as Democrat, 24% identified as Republican, and 42% as Independent. Mr Trump's win ranks 46th out of 58 on the list of Electoral College votes secured by US Presidents since George Washington in 1789. His popular vote tally was more than two percentage points lower than Ms Clinton's, at 46.1 per cent against her 48.2 per cent – or 62.98 million against 65.84 million.

With these statistics and facts before us, we can understand why White men will cheat, lie, change rules to conform to their liken but in all honesty, they will change the narrative that somehow deny the very existence of the true America. It can be recorded through history that White men found America but 250 years have failed to realized a change in racial makeup, laws allowing more freedom to women yet here we are 2018 observing policies made up by Rich White men which allows the majority of (our) country, though diverse to remain predominately a White old man society. What do they know about women's health, minority human rights, discrimination, abortion rights etc? Exactly yet they've wrestled the Constitutional rights and entitlements from those they claim to represent. Lastly, last week at the UN conference, our illustrious racist president stands before the entire globe proclaiming himself the best in history, no wonder the world laugh, not only at him but the hypocrisy exhibited by him presuming our nation to be the role model for the world.

It's rather sad to watch these vile men stand upright and dignified, knowing full well that they're lying to the American public, particularly our women. Mr. Trump, God has a special place for you when you lie with a straight face about violating the rights of women and call them all false accusers, you know when someone is a pathological liar when their entire life has been woven with untruths and lies but denies the truth in their victims.

Trump's claims of being more popular than Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama are crumbling as we speaks. His nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for supreme court has exposed another false claim that he is popular among women, no sir you're not, evident by the millions of protesters all over this country signifying a dissatisfaction toward your administration and misogynist mindset . Continue your rally's but open minded voters can protest, verbalize and speak their opinions openly with the threat of physical harm and being kicked out if you disagree.

Words to describe Donald Trump

abhorrent, abominable, condemnable, detestable, execrable, hateful, loathsome, odious
disgusting, reptilian, repugnant, repulsive, revolting, revulsive
discreditable, disgraceful, dishonorable, disreputable, ignominious, shameful
base, ignoble, low, shabby, sordid, squalid, vile
blamable, censurable, reprehensible, reproachable
cowardly, craven, dastardly
unethical, unprincipled, unscrupulous

Have you notice how nice he has become in terms of dealing with the FBI? The fool has enough sense to know that this investigation can take his candidate down and in no way should he raise their ire. Too bad that his nastiness toward Bob Mueller isn't stopping the investigations on him but actually makes it more detailed and in depth.

Re: More winning... - 10/01/18 07:07 AM

We've heard from our GOP brethren that Liberals are just upset that Trump won, how about his premise that originated 3 years ago that Trump has neither the disposition, temperament or mentality to run the country. What's astounding is the fact that 44 president upheld a standard and precedent in which to gauge their performance but Conservative states that he was designed to break those standards while plowing a new path. Here we are 2 years later and look at the results, first president besides JFK and Bill Clinton making headline news in regard to sexual in proprieties, first president showing be be a comrade with a foreign dictator, first president having better than half of his appointee either resigning or being fired, first president to show his disdain for women and minorities publicly so, our FLOTUS is a former prostitute and pinup magazine model, first president to alienate our foreign allies and list goes on. It's a sad day in American history when Trump supporters change the "game rules" just for a win, now tell us who is winning when taking into account the headlines which has America the laughing stock of the world as we speak?

I've witnessed some very disturbing scenes over the last 18 months, a group of people that adores their leader while simultaneously fearing the possibility of upsetting him and the repercussions from his anger. When it's all said, we are now realizing the morphing of a political party formerly known as the Republican party. All now fear his raft, they are offering their own financial status to satisfy his, he asked them to offer him their son and daughter (they see no problem with rape of women and teen girls) he tells the boys to take what they want from the girls and we will defend you. Watching a predominately White group give themselves entirely over to a sham of a man is the new wave in America but sadly most won't realize it until it's too late.

Re: More winning... - 10/04/18 01:36 PM



I deem it so discriminatory that we as a country is so divided by race, take a look at this man, name is Barack Husain Obama who was the 44th POTUS, he in my opinion wasn't the greatest president but somehow manage to pull the country out of a historical Depression and starting a financial trend we see today, job creation and a stimulated economy. Ironically he was voted into office by Black and White voters and received that support not just once but a second time 4 years later. During his tenure, he showed class, was very articulate, showed men how to treat women, adored his wife and family and went to church on a regular basis. Today we have in the White House a vile and racist man who acquired the job by questionable means, he on a daily trend talk similar to that of a 13 year old petulant boy by demeaning people, lying about everything in his life from finances to molesting women. Obama was called a (Emperor) for defying congress while this man has taken over Congress, he has alienated us with every country including those that we have a 100 year relationship with. He has defied every past policy of showing his income taxes while cheating the IRS out of millions of dollars. By now you get the narrative but astounding so, see what blatant racism does for the United States of America, it's not what any individual do that counts, it's more abundantly important to state who the individual is in regard to race and gender and based on the past history of Hillary Clinton endorsing universal health care and Obama creating a positive economy, all this doesn't matter........... if you're not a angry White man. Way to go America, we aren't as great as we deem ourselves to be, other than a great economy.

US unemployment rate lowest since 1969
By Leia KlingelPublished October 05, 2018JobsFOXBusiness

Economy adds 134K jobs in September
FBN's Edward Lawrence breaks down the September jobs report.

The U.S. economy added 134,000 jobs in September below analysts' expectations while the unemployment rate was 3.7 percent, the lowest since 1969.


Analysts polled by Refinitiv (formerly Thomson Reuters) forecast that the U.S. economy would add 185,000 jobs in September with the unemployment rate ticking down to 3.8 percent. In August, the unemployment rate was 3.9 percent.


Wages increased by 0.3 percent in September, taking the 12-month wage growth to 2.8 percent.

“Another solid jobs report; not too hot and not too cold ,” Kate Warne, investment strategist at Edward Jones told FOX Business.


Warne is not concerned about the lower-than-expected number of jobs created in September, noting revisions within the past two months, which in total put the number of jobs created, in line with expectations.


The number of Americans active in the workforce was steady, with the labor participation rate coming in at 62.7 percent.

Manufacturing, construction and health care sectors added jobs in September, while retail, leisure and hospitality lost jobs. With retail, leisure and hospitality susceptible to bad weather – it is possible Hurricane Florence is behind the lower-than-expected number.

The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note climbed following the jobs report, and was hovering around a 7-year high.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Picks And Chooses Which Parts of Her Life to Highlight – But Here's What She Left Out
Beth Baumann

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Congressional candidate from New York, hit the scene a few months ago and quickly became the face of the future of the Democratic Party. Her socialist positions made her popular with Bernie Sanders and other of the like. After all, she is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America.

On Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her birthday in an odd way: by bragging about her "accomplishments" and the life she's built over the last seven years.


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
✔
@Ocasio2018

US House candidate, NY-14
At 22, I was working w/ children + communities.

At 25, I was waitressing to support my family.

At 28, I won my primary for Congress. I didn’t have health insurance.

Today I turn 29.

You’re never too late, too early, or too imperfect to care for yourself or pursue your dreams.

Replying to @Ocasio2018
I’m incredibly grateful + thankful to all the family, friends, and community that has supported this journey.

I’m blessed to have the Bronx and Queens as my home.

Thank you to everyone that has worked to fill our community with love. Looking forward to the future we make. ✨

The problem: she's left out a few key "facts" about her past that make her less appealing to Democratic voters. They go a little something like this:


• When she was five she moved from the Bronx to Yorktown Heights, where the average household income is $141,254.

• She attended Boston University, a private college where tuition alone currently sits at $52,816 (and no, that doesn't include room and board, books, fees, etc).

• While in college she interned for U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy and handled foreign affairs and immigration casework for his constituents.

• She campaigned for Bernie Sanders in 2016.

• After the 2016 election, she drove across the country to talk to people in Flint, Michigan about the water crisis there and to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests to talk with protestors.


• She worked for the National Hispanic Institute, a nonprofit organization that fights for the civil rights of Hispanics, as the Educational Director of the 2017 Northeast Collegiate World Series.

Does Ocasio-Cortez sound like someone who can relate to the average Joe? Absolutely not.

Does she know what it's like to have to work multiple jobs while attending college? Nope.

Is she a political outsider? Hardly.

Why are Democrats falling for this Socialist darling? Oh, that's right. Because she's promising them "free" things.

Before the end of 2018 and 2019, we will see a nation divided similarity to the Civil war but the winning will be significantly leaning toward Liberalism. We've witnessed nearly two years of Conservatism and what have we received???????? A party claiming a economic success created primarily by Barack Obama, everything else is in complete disarray.

It never ceases to amaze me when Conservative tout their position, on one being stubbornly ignorant to an opposing view unlike their. Sadder yet is the fact that most Conservatives fail to think for themselves and tend to "wait" for directives from a leaders. Watch your talking heads and soon you'll realize a repeat of similar quipping adverse to dissecting the narrative as possibly being totally wrong. SO glad that I can speak for my self, stand up for myself and most of all, retain my Constitutional right of defying the government when they harm the personal liberties. Example Conservatives: where is your fantastic healthcare? huge tax benefits, lower gas prices, lowering of drug prices etc......someone falsely told you that they are in your corner...even a little kid understands the fact of promises being broken.

So Obama was actually accurate during his tenure in terms of unemployment numbers. grin

You know what's even FUNNIER? grin

Real Unemployment Rate With Calculations:

The real unemployment rate (U-6) is a broader definition of unemployment than the official unemployment rate (U-3). In September 2018, it was 7.5 percent.

The U-3 is the rate most often reported in the media. In the U-3 rate, the Bureau of Labor Statistics only counts people without jobs who are in the labor force. To remain in the labor force, they must have looked for a job in the last four weeks.

The U-6, or real unemployment rate, includes the underemployed, the marginally attached, and discouraged workers. For that reason, it is almost double the U-3 report.

I wonder when logic and common sense will kick in for Whites, notice how any Black movement or cause elicit blow back from said White group but ironically so, this same group can come together for a cause relating to White pride and mayhem breaks out (You've observed the same repercussions from a Black standpoint) Now tell u,s where is any justification on either side?

We as a nation and country can't ignore the fact that our president is limited in intellect, diplomacy and articulation. Watching the array of media outlets, I'm pleased to hear the expression of heart felt love, compassion and comfort coming from local religious leaders to the Pennsylvania governor etc but there is a missing piece of the puzzle, a nation's leader who is obviously out of place and uncomfortable in a position showing love and compassion toward others outside the White race. It isn't surprising to understand the vitriol and hatred expressed by his supporters, they too possess not the mature ability to write their political leaders to express their frustration but are more adept at acting as petulant school children through means of crime, name calling and violence.

'They're Democrats': Shots Fired At Volusia GOP HQ
Matt Vespa

We’ve had some nutty person mail explosive devices to prominent Democrats and celebrities. They luckily did not go off, and no one was hurt. A raging anti-Semite shot and killed 11 people in a synagogue in Pittsburgh over the weekend. The media is in overdrive trying to pin this all on President Donald Trump and the conservative media. So, is the president to blame for the shots that were fired at the Volusia GOP headquarters in Florida?

Earlier today, four shots were fired at the local GOP headquarters. No other businesses were harmed. It appears to be another act of politically motivated violence (via Daytona Beach News-Journal):

The windows of Volusia County’s Republican Party headquarters were found shot out Monday morning and four bullet holes were discovered inside the offices.

Police were investigating the damage to the windows at 2841 S. Nova Road, a strip mall near Reed Canal Park.

Shattered glass and fallen campaign posters littered the sidewalk outside Republican party headquarters. Inside, volunteers pointed to bullet holes in the walls and ceiling.

“We have never had any kind of vandalism before at a Republican Headquarters,” Tony Ledbetter, the chairman of Volusia County’s Republican Party, said in an email Monday morning. “It’s a small strip center and no other business was vandalized, so it was obviously politically motivated.”

Booming: US Wages and Salaries Grow at Fastest Pace in Ten Years, Consumer Confidence Soars Again
Guy Benson

One of the economic metrics liberals have focused on during the Trump presidency has been wages. Their argument has been that while other fundamental indicators are undeniably strong, America's growth is failing to help workers and families improve their own take-home pay. This has been paraded as a failure of tax reform (more on that later), and an indictment of an otherwise-roaring economy. With the midterms looming, it looks like the naysayers and nitpickers are going to have to smoke out a new pessimistic talking point -- via CNBC:

Wages and salaries rose 0.9 percent, well ahead of expectations for 0.5 percent. Benefit costs were up 0.4 percent. On a yearly basis, wages and salaries jumped 3.1 percent, the biggest increase in 10 years. Wage increases have been the missing link in the economy since the recovery began in mid-2008. Average hourly earnings have been rising steadily but have stayed below the 3 percent level as slack has remained in the labor market. However the unemployment rate is now at 3.7 percent, the lowest since 1969, and wage pressures have begun to build.

Here's a graph charting the comeback:

Also today, a fresh, closely-watched projection points to robust job creation numbers in October, soundly beating experts' expectations:

Companies continued to hire at a brisk pace in October, with private payrolls rising by a better-than-expected 227,000, according to a report Wednesday from ADP and Moody's Analytics. Economists surveyed by Refinitiv had expected growth of 189,000 after September's 218,000..."The job market bounced back strongly last month despite being hit by back-to-back hurricanes," Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's, said in a statement. "Testimonial to the robust employment picture is the broad-based gains in jobs across industries. The only blemish is the struggles small businesses are having filling open job positions."

The "only blemish" cited is the difficulty of some job creators to actually fill open positions, an indication of how hot the jobs market is. Overall US unemployment is at 3.7 percent, the lowest mark in nearly 50 years, and third quarter GDP growth just came in at a faster-than-expected 3.5 percent, with the American economy apparently on pace to grow at a clip of at least three percent for the entirety of 2018. No wonder US consumer confidence has peaked to an 18-year high:

A recent Fox News survey showed that tax reform is polling eight points above water -- far better than it fared when the bill was being debated and demagogued -- and an NBC poll gave Republicans a 15-point lead over Democrats on handling the economy. But the opposition party has continued to blast away at the tax law, deliberately feeding widespread public perception that the new system helped very rich people and corporations, as opposed to the middle class. Politico reported this morning about the misleading or outright false tax attacks Democrats are running against the GOP this cycle: "Republicans cut taxes for the vast majority of Americans, though you wouldn't know it by some of the campaign ads Democrats have been running," the story explains. "Some badly misrepresent the law, portraying it as a broad tax increase on the middle class."

They're lying about tax reform in an effort to wrongly convince people that the new system doesn't benefit the overwhelming majority of taxpayers, which it empirically does. As I wrote last week, Democrats' rhetoric on tax "fairness" is not rooted in fact, "the rich" already pay a massively disproportionate percentage of US income taxes, and the statistics on which many of the false criticisms rely are built upon a hypothetical future outcome, ignoring the law's impact over the next eight years. Amazingly, nearly every House Democrat voted against a bill last month that would have made the new individual income rates permanent, thus vitiating two of their relentlessly-repeated talking points. It seems they'd rather keep their mendacious claims intact than allow middle class families to keep their tax cuts indefinitely. Interesting priorities. As I leave you with this new development, please recall that every single Democratic member of Congress opposed this legislation, hoping to block the benefits American workers and consumers are now enjoying:

Tax Reform 'Armageddon' Aftermath: As New Fiscal Year Begins, Federal Tax Revenues...Increase
Guy Benson

Regular readers are aware that I was a strong advocate of the GOP-passed tax reform law, dedicating much time and energy in this space to dispelling demagoguery, exaggerations and lies about the policy. I've also devoted a fair amount of effort to debunking liberal myths about taxation levels and "fair share" politics -- including this recent piece about the wildly disproportionate share of federal taxes paid by the wealthiest Americans. In case you missed it, here's the key takeaway:

I framed this data within the context of Democrats' persistent and dishonest attacks on the new tax law, which have contributed to public ambivalence about the needed reforms. The recent law consistently polls within a few points in either direction of break-even (yes, a vast improvement over the days when the left-wing propaganda machine was in overdrive), and 2018 exit polling data shows that nearly one-quarter of voters said they believe the reforms have actually hurt their personal finances. Fewer than one-third said the law has helped their situation, with a large majority saying it made no difference either way. In reality, numerous nonpartisan analyses have demonstrated that close to 90 percent of taxpayers received a tax cut, with only about five percent experiencing any increased tax burden (mostly high-income earners in high-tax blue states).

Democrats made all sorts of ludicrously dire predictions about tax reform, warning that it would slam the middle class (it did the opposite), would fail to stimulate the economy (it clearly has), and would bankrupt the country. The handwringing over deficits and debt are impossible to swallow from the party of Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi. That said, it's true that the Trump administration is racking up irresponsibly and historically massive deficits -- alarmingly, during prosperous times, all while evincing virtually no seriousness about our long-term debt bomb. This short-sighted and cowardly recklessness is becoming a bipartisan tradition. But it's also true that allowing Americans to keep more of the money they earn, and making the US corporate tax rates (both statutory and effective) more globally competitive, are in no way major or serious contributors to Uncle Sam's rising tide of red ink. Even after the tax law was implemented, government revenues as a percentage of GDP are projected to remain above the average of recent decades:

As always, it's a spending problem. To underscore this reality, over at HotAir, Andrew Malcolm notices that in the first month of the new fiscal year, federal tax revenues soared to an all-time high:


Just 47 weeks after Trump put his flamboyant signature on the bill, it’s all happening. Unemployment is at an historic low. Employment is at an all-time high. Wagers are growing after years of stagnation. And now from all that increased economic activity, the federal government has just reported historic record tax revenues in October, the first month of the new fiscal year, of $252,692,000,000. That’s more than $11.4 billion above revenue for October of last year, which was the previous record tax revenue for an October. And it did this by collecting more than $3 billion less in personal income taxes, thanks to the tax cuts. The new revenues were the result of increased business taxes because of increased business. Here’s how much different it was: Corporation income tax receipts to the U.S. Treasury this year in October were a whopping $8,000,000,000. This compares to the previous October’s $3.8 billion. Despite the record tax revenues in October, the federal government ran a deficit of $100.5 billion that month because...spending.

Even with the economy roaring and fresh tax cuts producing growth (leading, in turn, to higher revenues), Washington is still spending much, much more than it's taking in. Republicans will cynically blame Democrats' overspending (although it's true that Democrats are positively allergic to necessary reforms to save the entitlement programs they claim to care about) for this problem, while Democrats even more cynically blame tax relief. If and when their party regains unified federal power, they'll undoubtedly seize on GOP tax cuts as a specious excuse to explode spending even further:

The liberal pushback against this article shows the liberal fiscal delusion. We're up to $45 trillion in new liberal proposals, on top of the $12 trillion baseline deficit (over decade). But I get it, the GOP cut taxes by $2 trillion so now Dems should get their $45 trillion turn

If Democrats want to impose a single-payer healthcare scheme, they'll need to inflict gigantic tax increases on middle income households and working Americans. That's a mathematical fact. No wonder so many leftists are angry about the Democratic proposal to create a supermajority threshold to approve tax hikes on the middle class. They know they'll need those big tax hikes to partially fund the future of their government supremacist agenda. Voters, beware.

70% of Americans now support Medicare-for-all—here's how single-payer could affect you

The vast majority of Americans, 70 percent, now support Medicare-for-all, otherwise known as single-payer health care, according to a new Reuters survey. That includes 85 percent of Democrats and 52 percent of Republicans. Only 20 percent of Americans say they outright oppose the idea.

"Medicare is a very popular program, so the idea of expanding it to everyone is popular as well," Larry Levitt, senior vice president for health reform at the Kaiser Family Foundation, tells CNBC Make It. "The advantage of Medicare-for-all, which is much closer to how the rest of the world provides health care to their residents, is that you can achieve universal coverage at a lower cost."

The problem with health care in the US
For at least a decade, most Americans have been dissatisfied with the country's largely for-profit health-care system, according to Gallup. In a poll last year, 71 percent of respondents said the system is "in a state of crisis" or "has major problems."

Health care in the U.S. is criticized primarily for its inefficiency, inaccessibility and ever-rising costs. The average annual deductible for employer-sponsored health care plans, which make up most of the plans in the U.S., was $1,505 in 2017, compared to $303 in 2006, according to the KFF.

Tax Reform 'Armageddon' Aftermath: As New Fiscal Year acy

[size:23pt]If Democrats want to impose a single-payer healthcare scheme, they'll need to inflict gigantic tax increases on middle income households
and working Americans. That's a mathematical fact. No wonder so many leftists are angry about the Democratic proposal to create a supermajority threshold to approve tax hikes on the middle class. They know they'll need those big tax hikes to partially fund the future of their government supremacist agenda. Voters, beware.


Therein lies your huge monumental problem son. Trump's claim a tax cut was primarily a big farce which only gave a tax benefit to the rich. Now that the public is wise to his unethical tactics, mathematical facts dictates that the ACA should have been left intacted before crooked GOP damaged it. Not only did it pay for a single payer but generated a revenue as well.

Many will say that Trump was elected because he holds no allegiance to no one in Washington, he's a renegade and will always go against the norm, well in reality, the fool is only rich and has not the wherewithal to follow protocol, he's like a awkward duck in a room full of swans, one of the reason he was not ask to speak, he's lacks grace, intelligence and speaking ability and if you Trumpsters care to keep up the charades, do so by all means, a common thief with little decent upbringing is a very difficult student in a world of pomp and circumstance.

As I watch the final funeral service for George HW Bush, it never ceases to amaze me the amount of true friends that he and his family garnered over the years,in stark contrast, our current president is actually a lonely man with no friends.Those that deal with him are reminiscence of a MOB boss, someone you better fear or respect if you know what's good for your personal safety.Due to his style of upbringing, he never trusted anyone or got too close in term of relationship.

'Large Scale Fraud:' Former CNN 'Journalist of the Year' Forced to Relinquish Title


Claas Relotius, who wrote for the German magazine Der Spiegel, was an impressive investigative reporter who had earned himself a spot on Forbes's "30 Under 30" list for European media and won CNN's "Journalist of the Year" award in 2014. He had composed over 60 articles for Der Spiegel and was largely lauded for his work. However, after an internal investigation, the magazine was shocked to discover the star reporter had fabricated at least 14 of his reports.

The scandal “marks a low point in the 70-year history of Der Spiegel,” according to the publication.

The piece that proved to be his "undoing" and exposed seven years of "large scale journalistic fraud" was his report on "Jaeger's Border," which focused on a group in Arizona conducting patrols along the border to Mexico. In his reporting Relotius had failed to reach out to some of the most prominent people in the story. No matter. He made up his own characters and quotes.

Claas Relotius committed his deception intentionally, methodically and with criminal intent. For example, he included individuals in his stories who he had never met or spoken to, telling their stories or quoting them. Instead, he would reveal, he based the depictions on other media or video recordings. By doing so, he created composite characters of people who actually did exist but whose stories Relotius had fabricated. He also made up dialogue and quotes.

Another of his fabricated stories was his report on the town of Fergus Falls, Minnesota entitled, "Where they pray for Trump on Sundays." In his attempt to apparently make the town's citizens seem racist and sexist, Relotius even made up people that didn't actually exist.


What Relotius produced were "endless pages of an insulting, if not hilarious, excuse for journalism,” according to investigators.

A Minnesota Public Radio writer ripped apart Relotius's report point by point.

Here are just a few of the other reports Relotius published that are being investigated for suspicious content.

Several major features Relotius wrote for Der Spiegel that were also nominated for or won journalism awards are now under scrutiny, according to the magazine.

Among them, "The Last Witness," about an American who allegedly travels to an execution as a witness, "Lion Children," about two Iraqi children who have been kidnapped and reeducated by the Islamic State, and "Number 440," a feature about alleged prisoners at the US detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Relotius's troubles with the truth got him fired from Der Spiegel, forced him to relinquish his CNN title, and seek mental help.


“I am sick and I need to get help,” Relotius reportedly told the magazine.

"It has now become clear that Claas Relotius, 33 years old, one of DER SPIEGEL's best writers, winner of multiple awards and a journalistic idol of his generation, is neither a reporter nor a journalist," Spiegel online said of the matter. "Rather, he produces beautifully narrated fiction."

Other journalists faced similar reckonings once their outlets found out they had been waging misinformation campaigns. Stephen Glass was fired from The New Republic magazine after they learned he had made up dozens of stories. Jayson Blair faced the same fate at the New York Times when editors learned he had plagiarized much of his material.

Trump Is Too Incompetent at His Job to Escape His Own Shutdown
He started a bad fight over an unpopular wall and can't admit he's wrong.


Maybe Trump is right and Democrats will surrender. But the polls and the history of shutdowns suggest Democrats have a better political position and will stick to their guns. Meanwhile, Republicans could vote to override Trump's veto and reopen the government anytime Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell allows it. That option would involve its own risks for Republicans, but it's clear Trump doesn't understand or doesn't care how bad this shutdown is for both the country and his presidency. His allies need to save him from himself, and save those 800,000 government workers while they're at it.

If Trump now reopens Govt, he visibly surrenders to Pelosi.

If Trump keeps Govt closed, he bleeds support faster. Workers miss next paycheck, air travel delays, govt services fail, and economy stalls.

Trump built the trap and walked into it. Pelosi just locked it behind him.

Yes indeed it's Trump's fault. You forget the budget meeting a month ago that showed bi partisan participation including Trump himself. A budget was agreed on and only needed Trump's signature. Well sadly a anorexic white women and a racist fat White guy punk trump out and he suddenly had a change of venue.... so yes, blame the shutdown on 3 conflicted and racist white people. A sad commentary that some people are so racist that they're willing to take an entire country down the tube for their own personal hangups.

Nancy Pelosi's Previous Taxpayer Funded Trips Were Pretty Fancy

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats are pretty enraged President Trump cancelled their taxpayer funded trip overseas -- in the middle of a government shutdown -- at the last minute on Thursday. In fact, they were already sitting on the bus ready to go to the airport.

Oh, You Bet The Pelosi Entourage Was Not Happy When Trump Torpedoed Her Brussels Trip

Not much has changed.

In the meantime, Pelosi apparently tried to leave the country for a second time after President Trump canceled military aircraft for her trip on Thursday. The White House repeatedly asked her to sit down and negotiate a deal to end the current shutdown.

Re: More winning... - 01/18/19 02:16 PM

I see that you can copy and paste and the premise that Nancy was wrong came be a unobstructed premise here but the ignorance on your part is why did Trump stop the trip and for what reasoning other than petty retaliation. If you or he imply fiscal responsibility, then explain why would he allow the government to lose 1,2 billion dollars a day due to this shutdown? Do the math son, 1.2 billion times 26 plus days. Rehashing a trip to the cost to taxpayers is minuscule to the billions we're are losing.

Michael Cohen's Lawyer Rips Trump's 'Mafioso Don' Witness 'Intimidation'
HuffPost Mary Papenfuss,HuffPost Fri, Jan 18 9:55 PM EST

A lawyer for Michael Cohen blasted gibes by President Donald Trump concerning Cohen’s family that he compared to threats from a “mafioso don” intended to “intimidate a witness.”

“The president of the United States [is] trying to intimidate a witness that is trying to tell the truth and called him a rat for telling the truth. That sounds like a mafioso don ... it creates fear in the family of Michael Cohen,” attorney Lanny Davis told Chuck Todd on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily.”

“There is fear that Mr. Trump has supporters either in this country or maybe abroad that have a motivation to harm,” Davis added.

Michael Cohen's lawyer blasts Rudy Giuliani, accuses him of 'witness tampering'

Good Morning America MORGAN WINSOR and KELLY MCCARTHY,Good Morning America 1 hour 55 minutes ago

Reactions Reblog on Tumblr Share Tweet Email

Michael Cohen's lawyer blasts Rudy Giuliani, accuses him of 'witness tampering' originally appeared on abcnews.go.com

Michael Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, says Rudy Giuliani should be indicted for "witness tampering" following his comments on national television earlier this week.

"Calling out a man's father-in-law and wife in order to intimidate the witness is not fair game and it needs to be investigated," Davis told ABC News' chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview Thursday on "Good Morning America."

Davis was referring to Giuliani's remarks during an appearance last Sunday on CNN, in which President Donald Trump's personal attorney said that Cohen's father-in-law, "a Ukrainian," "may have ties to something called organized crime."

The president himself said via Twitter two days earlier to "watch" Cohen's father-in-law. Trump has posted other tweets in recent weeks suggesting that Cohen's father-in-law and wife may have links to criminal activity.

"Does the American people, even Trump voters, have any sympathy for attacking a man’s family?" Cohen's lawyer said on "GMA" in response. "Does any American Trump or non-Trump supporter support that kind of demagogic, reckless interference with Congress as well as obstruction of justice?"

Maybe that's a question for legal council Robert Mueller. One of the downfall for you is your own rationale and reasoning.

These MAGA tweets are what we’ve all been waiting for.

MAGAs are doing their taxes & woke up to the fact Donald’s a complete FRAUD.

I don’t feel sorry for them, but love reading how angry they are.

When 45 drops below 30% support (late Spring/early Summer) @GOP will bail.

New tax deduction cap could turn big refund into big tax bill

Published: 02/06/2019 @ 01:22 pm | Updated: 02/06/2019 @ 01:30 pm

The big tax question of the year: Will you get a super-sized refund or suddenly discover that you’re going to end up writing one monster check?

No one really knows for sure in light of sweeping changes that hit homeowners, two-paycheck couples and families who once had a string of itemized deductions but no longer can take some breaks under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

Taxpayers are getting their first look at how the new tax overhaul hits their pocketbooks when they file their 2018 federal income tax returns. The devil involving those deductions, such as those for property taxes and state income taxes, is in the details.

If you think you’re getting the same tax refund as last year – or even bigger with the tax cuts – think again. It’s not that simple. Some are owing more money.

A Novi, Michigan, homeowner told me he was shocked when he was smacked with having to write a big check to pay his tax bill after he completed his 2018 tax return.

He owes more than $3,000 when typically he received roughly a $4,000 refund in the past.

The couple, in their 50s, both have jobs and receive W-2s to report their wages. They pay about $9,000 in state income taxes and another $10,000 or so for property taxes on their Novi condo. Their children are older and don’t qualify for any child tax credit.

The homeowner asked to remain anonymous, citing a desire to keep his family’s financial situation private.

The Trump tax cuts will go down as one of the biggest heists in American history, transferring billions of dollars from the poor and middle class to the wealthy and corporations. For the sake of our democracy, we must have the fortitude to take on these modern robber barons.

No Ben the ACA screwed everyone. The ACA took health insurance away from millions and made the insurance they had to get even more expensive. We already have insurance for all. If you don't have the income it is called Medicaid, if you have the income it is called private insurance. Works in every other country except two.

Dear GOP Republicans: America is not a theocracy, monarchy, or a dictatorship. America is a democracy. So please stop putting Trump on a pedestal of GOD, King, or a demagogue. He’s a president (via proxy by Russia by the way)

No Ben the ACA screwed everyone. The ACA took health insurance away from millions and made the insurance they had to get even more expensive. We already have insurance for all. If you don't have the income it is called Medicaid, if you have the income it is called private insurance. Works in every other country except two.

The ACA added MILLIONS to the ranks of those who could afford insurance. Losses of coverage were virtually non-existent.

Lower health insurance costs by the VAST majority of new recipients, and those who experienced increases were from households with total annual incomes in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. States that declined federal monies, were exclusively those with the highest cost increases and greatest net loss of those insured. Plus, your assertions conveniently and incorrectly claim that millions lost their coverage. They did NOT. You also fail to mention that such things as price controls and guaranteed coverage for pre-existing conditions never previously existed. However, almost 4,000,000 have lost coverage under Trump.

So much for your alleged 'facts'.

Misinformation Win: Just 21 Percent of Americans Think They're Getting a Tax Cut -- Even Though 80 Percent of Them Are

The GOP-passed tax reform law -- against which every Democrat in Congress voted, hysterically warning of 'Armageddon' -- reduced the tax burdens of roughly 80 percent of all Americans in 2018, including approximately 91 percent of middle income families. That's according to multiple nonpartisan organizations and analysts, as well as the federal government. It's just a fact. But although the law has gained in popularity in recent months, and is viewed far more favorably than when the Left's dishonest propaganda reached a fever pitch during debate over passage, widespread misconceptions remain. I shared this story on Twitter yesterday because the back-and-forth with a friend stopped me in my tracks. No amount of information, including the admission that he received a tax cut, could convince him that he hadn't been 'screwed over' by the law:

...I also pointed out that most ppl take the standard deduction, which the new law doubled. He called this “bulls***.” I furnished evidence that it’s just an empirical fact & he concluded that we’d just have to “agree to disagree.” I’m at a loss.

As a liberal who doesn't follow politics closely, he apparently knew what he was "supposed" to believe, and would not be moved from that perception -- objective facts, and his own personal experience, notwithstanding. He's not alone. A new poll from Reuters shows that barely over one-fifth of Americans believe they'll pay less this tax season, while slightly more believe their tax bill will actually go up:

The March 6-11 survey found about 21 percent of adults who had either filed their taxes or planned to said “the new tax plan that Congress recently passed” would let them pay less this year; about 29 percent said they would pay more; 27 percent said there would be no impact; 24 percent said they were not sure. The responses differed along party lines, with Republican taxpayers more likely than others to expect a tax benefit. According to the poll, about 33 percent of Republicans said they would pay less tax; 17 percent said they would pay more. Among Democrats, about 8 percent said they would pay less; about 45 percent said they would pay more.

It is extraordinary that nearly 20 percent of Republicans think their taxes will go up, while nearly half (!) of Democrats say the same. The truth is that only about five percent of all Americans will see a net tax hike under the new law. Almost all of them are higher earners living in high-tax blue states who itemize deductions. The massively overwhelming share of American taxpayers simply take the standard deduction, which was doubled under the new law. Their taxes were indisputably cut. How has such misinformation been able to take root?

Yes, Democrats have been lying endlessly and fervently about tax reform, but wouldn't you think that the anti-darkness, truth squad in the media would be working overtime to ensure that Americans aren't swindled by false fear tactics? Or does the fire brigade only swarm to douse five alarmers when they support the political party that's been victimized by the lies? Hmm, I wonder. I'll also say this, however: There's a good chance these polling numbers would be better, and public understanding of the law would be less misguided, if the Republican with (by far) the biggest megaphone were using it incessantly and creatively to bring the facts to voters.

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 03/23/19 07:45 AM

If the news that Mueller finished his report with no conspiracy indictments left you confused, don’t feel bad. Tea was left scratchin’ his chin whiskers most of the early evenin’, too. That is until he took a few breaths and applied a little horse-sense to the puzzle. Then things started started fallin’ into place.

Before we get into the details, let’s first examine Bob Mueller’s very nature, because that is the key to makin’ sense of this 11th hour chess move.

First ask yourself four words you’d use to describe Mr. Mueller. Tea thinks a fair consensus would be “smart,” “proper,” “expedient” and “frugal.” Mueller hates spendin’ money. He’s known to regularly bring his lunch in a brown paper bag. He’s proper; he always follows the book and, most importantly, he’s smart. Here lie the clues we need to get a glimpse into his likely end-game strategy.

Now let’s examine why his office brought no conspiracy charges.

Workin’ backwards, bringin’ conspiracy charges wouldn’t be “frugal.” If Mueller took on the task of prosecutin’ Don Jr, Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort for the now-famous Trump Tower meetin’, it would require extendin’ his charter for at least two more years, for such a case would be fought all the way to the Supreme Court and back. This would greatly extend the cost of his mission and add fuel to fire for his critics.

The Special Counsel is designed more as an investigative collaboration, rather than a prosecutorial one. So the idea of recreatin’ an entire team to do the work done everyday by any of our federal districts wouldn’t be “expedient.”

“Proper” plays a vital role. Since Mueller plays by the book, his primary directive would be for a case to be tried where the venue is “proper.” Ask yourself the simple question, “Where did the bulk of the alleged Trump-Russia conspiracy take place?” and you have your answer: “New York City.” It would be silly for Mueller to prosecute Trump, Kush and the rest of Team Treason in D.C. when the crime took place in New York, right?

Simply put, this is “smart!” If Mueller prosecuted Diaper Donnie, Trump could pull the plug on Mueller’s charter and we’d litigate it in the courts until doomsday just to get the case back on track. But placin’ the venue in the purview of the Sovereign District of New York is a stroke of genius, safely away from Trump’s pryin’ baby hands. It’s frugal because SDNY is budgeted for just such actions. It’s expedient because SDNY is fully staffed and ready to roll. The venue is proper and, dang it, it’s just plain smart.

So… don’t be surprised if Monday mornin’ or one day real soon the SDNY drops the hammer on Little Donnie, Kush, Manafort, et, al. This would be the perfect setup for Individual-1 to be revealed in Mueller’s report as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Trump-Russia conspiracy.


Oh! One more thing. News broke tonight that the SDNY replaced the lead attorney on the Michael Cohen case with Audrey Strauss, famous for her defeat of Roy Cohn, lawyer for the Gambino crime family and Trump family attorney till his death. What’s the chances the SDNY decided to bring in the one attorney that beat Trump’s lucky charm, Roy Cohn? Tea Pain’s Grandpa Virgil always said, “Don’t believe in coincidences, Tea Pain, cause they take a heap of plannin’!”

The Trump-Barr coverup of the Mueller report is set to come unglued within the next 48 hours

One big thing to keep in mind: now that Barr has tried and failed to convince the public that there’s nothing in the Mueller report that they should care about, he’s already squirming in his seat. This week he sent a public letter to House Democrats, insisting that his summary wasn’t actually a “summary,” and whining about the fact that everyone is referring to it as a summary. Barr isn’t exactly coming off like a guy who’s confident in his legal position, or with how this is playing out in the court of public opinion.

Truth is we should all be Democrats. The party used to be the average Americans party that looked out for the American middle and lower class. That's all changed. The party of JFK has been hijacked. It went from the party that represented the little guy to the party that represents every guy irregardless of citizenship. In a perfect world open borders would be an awesome way of life. Unfortunately that's not the case and lawlessness, corruption, bribery, murder and cartels are a staple there. The cartels have infiltrated every aspect of government, military and society. Yes I know we have crime here but do we really need to import more? When I look to the left I see Biden giving a speech disparaging "white European culture" while citing the rule of thumb and saying this has to change. Ol Joe is going anti white to pander to the far left and gain their support. How many eons ago was the "rule of thumb" implemented? Funny how he can point a finger at white European culture and not mention any of the atrocities committed in the name of Islam. Islam it seems are the chosen people of the far left. If you say you don't like Islam you will quickly be called a racist. Heads up--many followers of Islam are white--and Islam is a religion not a race. I look to the left and see lunacy and a push towards socialism. The GOP is all about tax breaks for billionaires and back door deals that benefit others in the top 1%. I voted for Obama(1st term)and also for Trump in 2016. Not my choice of a president but when I look to the left I see something to vote against.

https://thehill.com/latino/418157-us-customs-closes-major-point-of-entry-along-southern-border

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reportedly closed the pedestrian and vehicle bridges at the San Ysidro port of entry near San Diego, Calif., on Sunday.

CNN reported that the roads and bridges at the entry point have been closed in both directions, and additional personnel has been dispatched to the area in anticipation of the arrival of Central American migrants who are part of a so-called caravan.

San Ysidro is one of the largest land border crossings between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, where hundreds of migrants have been staying in recent days before attempting to enter the U.S

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/poli...xas/3362333002/

WASHINGTON – Sen. Ted Cruz joined other congressional Republicans representing border states Wednesday in warning President Donald Trump against closing the U.S.-Mexico border, saying such a move would be "devastating" to Texas.

"Of course, we should secure the border. We must. Our broken immigration system and years of unwillingness to secure our southern border has produced a security and humanitarian crisis," Cruz said a statement.

"But the answer is not to punish those who are legally crossing the border. The answer is not to punish Texas farmers and ranchers and manufacturers and small businesses," he said. "Closing legal points of entry would harm American commerce and legal transit between Mexico and the United States, and leave coyotes and human traffickers to roam free in the wilderness of our unsecured border."

Thanksgiving without the sides: Lack of farm labor could make fruits, vegetables unaffordable

It takes a lot of workers to pick those acres, but the domestic labor simply isn’t available. This means that unless our elected officials make drastic changes to immigration policy — and allow us to hire more foreign-born workers — many Americans will soon have to give up their strawberries and other crops that must be laboriously picked by hand.
To operate at full capacity, I rely on temporary foreign-born workers hired through the H-2A visa program. But H-2A is a complete mess.

First, it’s incredibly expensive. On average, growers pay $2,500 per worker to cover transportation, housing and visa fees. This is on top of the mandated $11.12 minimum pay per hour in Florida, which is more than the state’s required minimum wage of $8.25. In California, the mandated minimum hourly rate is even higher at $12.57 per hour, more than the $11 minimum wage there.

Some of my workers, on piece-rate, were earning upwards of $25 per hour some weeks last season.

Second, there is so much red tape that my workers often arrive late, like this year, or have to leave before the harvest is complete.

In recent years, the number of new immigrants arriving here to work in agriculture has fallen by 75 percent. In Florida, we lost more than 8,500 field and crop workers between 2002 and 2014. The remaining workers are aging, which means the shortage will only increase over the next five to 10 years. Soon, we’ll be competing with countries like Mexico to import labor.

US President Donald Trump doubled down on his claims tying immigrants to crime as he made his case for the border wall in an Oval Office address Tuesday night.

"Over the years, thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country and thousands more lives will be lost if we don't act right now," Trump said.

But many researchers argue that immigrants are, in fact, less likely to commit crimes.

The term socialist has been thrown around quite a bit in the past few years. Not since the cold war has the term garnered so much attention in the press and from politicians. But when you look at countries who actually have a socialist economic structure, you can see some similarities to the United States – but there are some really stark differences.

Below, you will see some of the most socialistic nations in the world today:

China
Denmark
Finland
Netherlands
Canada
Sweden
Norway
Ireland
New Zealand
Belgium

Finland has one of the world’s best education systems, with no tuition fees and also giving free meals to their students. The literacy rate in Finland is 100 percent. Finland has one of the highest standards of living in the world.

Canadians remain more open-minded and liberal than Americans, and Canada is ranked as one of the best top five countries to live in by the United Nations and the Human Development Index (HDI) rankings.

In 2017, for the first time in twenty years, Mexico topped the list of International Living's annual ranking of the best places for U.S. citizens to retire. The population of Americans in Mexico is rising, in size as well as in age.

Yet most of them may be there illegally. South of the border, it's relatively easy for U.S. citizens to live without legal documentation. In fact, some official reports indicate that illegal Americans seem to be the rule, not the exception.

One 2015 study from Mexico's National Institute of Statistics and Geography reveals that a stunning 91.2 percent of Americans in the country don't have their papers in order. That figure includes typos and other minor irregularities, and doesn't appear to account for dual nationals.

The welcome many American immigrants feel in Mexico stands in stark contrasts to the way their Mexican counterparts are treated by Uncle Sam.

At the border crossing into Tijuana from San Diego, Americans can drive straight into Mexico without stopping or showing any kind of identification.

An illegal immigrant would be caught and asked to report at a later date only to never show up as required. Surprise, surprise. I don't believe anyone is brain dead enough to think their aren't honest good men and women that want to come here and work and we need them too. We also need some accountability from Mexico on who comes here to work and live. If you get a DWI you can't legally get into Canada. Why would it/ should it be any different on our southern border? Truthfully if either party were truly concerned about the inhumanity this whole situation creates it would have been resolved long ago. My thought is come in legally or face consequences when caught. There needs to be a clear path to citizenship and not necessarily an easy one.

Re: Trump keeps losing! - 04/04/19 05:58 PM

https://fingerlakes1.com/2019/02/01/owne...acket-orchards/

“Statistics show that for every migrant farm position that we have out there on the farm, there are four additional full-time domestic jobs that are created to that business’ function,” said Mark Nicholson, co-owner of Red Jacket Orchards.

Red Jacket Orchards, a 600-acre third generation family-owned farm has increased its participation in the H-2A visa worker program for this past harvest season.

Previously, Red Jacket began its affiliation with the federal worker program on behalf of the Department of Labor who works in collaboration with the Department of State and Homeland Security during their apple harvest season in 2017.

Starting in the March 2018, 15 workers arrived to start pruning trees and an additional crew arrived for the actual harvest season, expanding the overall number of H-2A employees at Red Jacket to total 35 foreign workers, all of which hail from Mexico; a notable increase from the 2017 harvest season in order to accommodate the company’s growing needs for skilled labor and to fulfill a much-needed void for physically demanding work on the farm.

“The ability to attract and retain migrant labor without the program had been increasingly difficult year after year. That labor just wasn’t available,” Nicholson continued.


He went on to further add, “This past season was the first year that we solely relied upon H-2A for all of our farm labor needs.”

While there are federal requirements for H-2A sponsor companies to provide transportation for their workers from their country of origin to the worksite as well as other transportation needs and mandatory housing for laborers, Nicholson is passionate in cultivating connections with the greater Geneva community for enhanced social and communal networks.

“Fortunately, there is a pretty robust Mexican community. Actually, some of the folks who we are recruiting to the program have family networks already in Geneva and is helpful for them and the group that comes up with them,” Nicholson added.

Nicholson also considered increasing the number of workers in the future as the orchard may expand, but he added, “But that is usually a five-year process from developing an orchard idea to bringing it to harvest.”

Nicholson emphasized the importance of food education for consumers about the growth and production of fruits, vegetables and other labor-intensive products, hoping to gain a new perspective about the positive role that migrants play in the economy.

“The average consumer may not realize how many times that product has been touched by migrant workers,” Nicholson said.

As a company, Nicholson believes that Red Jacket Orchards has an important role in expressing this knowledge and role by which agricultural migrants partake in, especially when it comes to how food arrives to store shelves.

Without this foundational understanding, Nicholson fears that the nation’s food security of homegrown products is at a potential risk when policies and programs for locally food and labor force initiatives are not present in communities. Instead, imported goods may seem as the only probable alternative to domestically-grown resources, an exorbitant endeavor altogether.
.
However, the direct and indirect costs that are associated to the H-2A program are even costly, but seem necessary, in the eyes of Nicholson, when he added, “While the program is very expensive, it is at least at this point the most reliable source of that critical labor we need.”

But most of all, Nicholson values his employees who help grow businesses surrounding the agricultural industry through operations and sales; local tractor, chemical and packaging companies, among other commercial enterprises.

“We create a lot of jobs and we can only do that because of that key workforce that really isn’t available anymore domestically,” Nicholson continued.

After attending Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and graduating with a bachelor’s of science in pomology in 1994, Nicholson went to work in Washington D.C., focusing on agriculture policy.

Nicholson served as the industry information manager for the U.S. Apple Association as well as a marketing specialist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service.

Throughout a 20-year career, he has devoted his life to agricultural issues and the continuing challenge for supplying labor. Currently, Nicholson serves as the chairman of U.S. Apple Association’s board of directors.

But even after visiting the offices of public servants to share their stories from an expert’s insights, positions in favor positive policy change have not progressed, but further entrenched a hotly-contested debate between agriculture and immigration.

Amid the climate of Trump’s discursive discussions between documented and undocumented migrants, Nicholson said that this conversation is “getting tied up in complicated and political discussions on immigration.”

When asked as to whether or not the conversation surrounding the agricultural migrant industry has advanced, Nicholson concluded, “It hasn’t gotten any better, its only gotten worse.”

William Barr Seems to Be Covering Up Something Bad for Trump

Jonathan Chait 19 hrs ago

Last evening, the Wall Street Journal editorialized that reporters and House Democrats were smearing Attorney General William Barr by implying that his summary of the Mueller report was anything other than completely faithful and representative. The Journal sneered at “the impression, abetted by a press corps that was fully invested in the collusion story, that Mr. Barr is somehow lying about Mr. Mueller’s real conclusions.” This was “preposterous,” the editorial explained, because Barr “surely understood on releasing the summary of conclusions last week that he would be open to contradiction by Mr. Mueller if he took such liberties.”

The editorial was published at 7:24 p.m. Minutes before, and probably too late to make any alterations, the New York Times broke the news that Barr was in fact contradicted. How could anybody think Barr would be stupid enough to lie when Mueller could expose him, asks the Journal, at almost literally the precise moment when Mueller’s team exposes Barr for lying.

The Times reports that Mueller’s famously leak-free team was moved to break its silence by Barr’s slanted summary of its work. The news from the Times, as well as the follow-up report from the Washington Post, conveys very little information about the substance of the report. There’s no reason to doubt Barr’s conclusion that Mueller was unable to establish a criminal conspiracy between Donald Trump and the Russian government. Whether the unflattering information in the report contains evidence of noncriminal misconduct with Russia — remember, collusion is not a crime — or centers entirely around obstruction of justice remains to be seen.

It does seem clear, though, that Barr has not been dealing from the top of the deck. More evidence of his bad faith can be found in his putative reason for abridging Mueller’s conclusions. The special counsel’s report provided summaries of its work. The Times, apparently relying on Justice Department sources, reports that Mueller’s summaries could not be published, because they “contain sensitive information, like classified material, secret grand-jury testimony and information related to current federal investigations that must remain confidential, according to two government officials.”

But the special counsel flatly contradicts this in its leak to the Post. The summaries, says a special counsel source, were deliberately written “so that the front matter from each section could have been released immediately — or very quickly … It was done in a way that minimum redactions, if any, would have been necessary, and the work would have spoken for itself.”

(Fordham law professor Jed Shugerman spotted this contradiction.) It’s possible, of course, the Justice Department is right and the special counsel is wrong. But it seems far more likely that Barr has, at minimum, spun the report in the most favorable way, in order to create the impression that it has cleared Trump. This has enabled the president and his defenders to spike the football, and present any efforts to examine the actual report as sore losers demanding to play overtime after the game has been decided.

Republican messaging in recent days has made it blindingly obvious the Mueller report is not a document Trump fans would enjoy reading around the fireplace. Republicans have gone from supporting its full release — which House Republicans supported last week in a unanimous vote — to cautioning against it as a distraction. Representative Devin Nunes, who has largely directed Trump’s defense in Congress and the right-wing media, appeared on Fox News last night and introduced a new term: “Mueller dossier.”

“Dossier” is the term used to (accurately) describe the reports collected by British agent Christopher Steele. Steele’s work actually was a dossier: a collection of tips and leads from sources he had some reason to credit, but not all of which would pan out. It was not a finished intelligence product.

Mueller’s report is not a dossier. It is in fact held to a higher standard of proof than an intelligence product. As prosecutors, Mueller’s team needed to establish findings at a level that could be proven beyond a reasonable doubt in court.

Nunes nonetheless used the term “dossier” three times in the span of a minute to describe Mueller’s conclusion. He is obviously priming the Trump fan base to disregard adverse

Former Watergate prosecutor thinks there's a smoking gun lurking in Trump’s bank records — here's why

https://www.rawstory.com/2019/04/former-...h_notifications

Former Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks told MSNBC on Friday that she was less interested in seeing President Donald Trump’s tax returns than she was in seeing his bank records — because they’d prove the president has been inflating his wealth.

Wine-Banks made the comment during a wider discussion about Trump’s “very unusual” involvement in appointing the next general counsel for the IRS, saying that Trump was likely “looking for his Roy Cohn” to “protect him” from Democratic demands for his tax returns. She also said that effort would likely fail miserably due to laws passed in 1928 to rein in then-Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon, that give the chair of the House Ways and Means Committee absolute authority to see the president’s taxes.

“Although this is a fight that will likely end up at the Supreme Court, no?” asked host Hallie Jackson.

“Yes. I think this president will not take it lightly and will fight it,” Wine-Banks replied “But then we have to ask, why is he hiding his taxes? What is it in there?”

“Normally you don’t learn that much from a tax return,” Wine-Banks went on. “I’d rather see his bank records and see all of the banks that he does business with because we’ll learn much more for that.”

“There is at least the possibility that he isn’t as rich as he says he is,” she continued, “and that’s what he doesn’t want us to know.

I’ve had face-to-face conversations with people about Trump’s hate-filled rallies, hate-filled tweets and hate-filled interviews, and I’ve been told that I worry too much. I’ve been told that Trump will be out of the White House in 2021 and the hatred, ignorance and cruelty will be over.

It will be over?

I’m sorry, but the hatred, ignorance and cruelty didn’t begin with Trump. Trump is like a fever caused by sepsis. He’s a symptom of a much greater problem.

When Trump holds his hate-filled rallies in Biloxi, Tupelo, Mobile, Baton Rouge, Estero or Pensacola, look at the people in crowds. There are boisterous crowds of chanting, cheering fanatics, emphatically cheering Trump on as he attacks Hillary Clinton, Christine Blasey Ford, Colin Kaepernick, CNN, immigrants, climate scientists and the like.

These people LOVE IT when Trump makes blatantly racists statements. They LOVE IT when Trump defends rapists and attacks rape victims. They LOVE IT when Trump attacks immigrants. They LOVE IT when Trump accuses all Latinos of being criminals.

Poll: 67% Of Likely Voters Say Illegal Immigration Is A Serious Problem, Most Believe Democrats Don't Want To Stop It
Timothy Meads


A new Rasmussen poll conducted this week indicates that 67% of likely United States voters believe that illegal immigration is a "serious problem" in the country today, but the plurality of those who took the survey do not believe that the Democratic Party in Congress "wants to slow or stop illegal immigration."

The percentage of likely voters who said illegal immigration is a "serious issue" has not changed since a similar poll conducted in January asked the same question. Furthermore, it could be argued that Americans are becoming less concerned with illegal immigration during President Trump's time in office as a similar 2015 poll found that 80% of likely voters said that it was a serious issue.

But the poll of 1,000 likely voters, conducted April 2-3 via telephone and online surveys, also found that 47% "say [illegal immigration] a Very Serious one." On the opposite side, 32% say illegal immigration is not a serious problem.


If poll answers are broken down across political party lines, "72% of Republicans see illegal immigration as a Very Serious problem, while "only 28% of Democrats agree."

When asked "Do most Democrats in Congress want to slow or stop illegal immigration?" Just 31% of likely voters said that Democrats in Congress want to "slow or stop illegal immigration." Comparatively, 70% of those polled said they believe Republicans want to stop the flow of illegal aliens. 45% of those polled believe the Democratic party does not want to stop illegal immigration at all.


The poll also found that "48% favor halting U.S. foreign aid to Mexico and governments in Central America that refuse to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into this country."

These numbers were released the same day that President Trump told law enforcement officials that those seeking to come to the United States that, "Whether it’s asylum, whether it’s anything you want, it’s illegal immigration, can’t take you anymore. Our country is full, our area is full, the sector is full, can’t take you anymore. I’m sorry, can’t happen, so turn around -- that’s the way it is."

Pretty Soon, House Democrats Could Start Arresting Trump’s People.
Many people within the Trump administration could soon be found in “Contempt of Congress” and thus find themselves subject to arrest.

https://www.politicususa.com/2019/04/06/...mps-people.html … via @politicususa

If Attorney General William Barr ignores a subpoena to produce Mueller’s documents, he could be arrested for contempt.

If Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin ignores a subpoena to product Donald Trump’s tax returns, he could be arrested for contempt.
It’s likely if these things happened that the Department of Justice (under control of the president) would intervene and the conflict would end up in court.

But it would take an extraordinary set of circumstances for the federal courts — including the Supreme Court — to disregard federal law and allow Trump’s people to avoid complying with congressional subpoenas.

The tax laws are very clear with respect to providing Trump’s tax returns: the statute says they must be given to the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee after he requests them, which he has done. There is no wiggle room here.

Still, yesterday, Trump had his lawyers publicly pronounce that they would not comply and would not allow the Treasury Department to turn over Trump’s tax returns to Democrats in the House.

At this point subpoenas have not been issued for either the Mueller report or for Trump’s tax returns. House Democrats have asked nicely, hoping they will receive what they want voluntarily. But if subpoenas are soon issued, and if they are ignored, then Donald Trump and his people will soon find out that the U.S. Congress is an equal branch of government, and should not be ignored.

They may also soon find out that House Democrats have the power to arrest Donald Trump’s people, and throw them jail.

When it comes to considering the top political issues facing the country -- immigration, health care and gun control among them -- politicians in Congress can give the impression that the public is hopelessly divided on policy solutions.

In reality, the polling shows the majority of the public usually backs policy positions preferred by the Democratic Party.

Stephen Miller Is an Immigration Hypocrite. I Know Because I’m His Uncle.
If my nephew’s ideas on immigration had been in force a century ago, our family would have been wiped out.


By DAVID S. GLOSSER August 13, 2018

Dr. David S. Glosser is a retired neuropsychologist: formerly a member of the Neurology faculties of Boston University School of Medicine and Jefferson Medical College.

Let me tell you a story about Stephen Miller and chain migration.

It begins at the turn of the 20th century, in a dirt-floor shack in the village of Antopol, a shtetl of subsistence farmers in what is now Belarus. Beset by violent anti-Jewish pogroms and forced childhood conscription in the Czar’s army, the patriarch of the shack, Wolf-Leib Glosser, fled a village where his forebears had lived for centuries and took his chances in America.


He set foot on Ellis Island on January 7, 1903, with $8 to his name. Though fluent in Polish, Russian and Yiddish, he understood no English. An elder son, Nathan, soon followed. By street corner peddling and sweatshop toil, Wolf-Leib and Nathan sent enough money home to pay off debts and buy the immediate family’s passage to America in 1906. That group included young Sam Glosser, who with his family settled in the western Pennsylvania city of Johnstown, a booming coal and steel town that was a magnet for other hardworking immigrants. The Glosser family quickly progressed from selling goods from a horse and wagon to owning a haberdashery in Johnstown run by Nathan and Wolf-Leib to a chain of supermarkets and discount department stores run by my grandfather, Sam, and the next generation of Glossers, including my dad, Izzy. It was big enough to be listed on the AMEX stock exchange and employed thousands of people over time. In the span of some 80 years and five decades, this family emerged from poverty in a hostile country to become a prosperous, educated clan of merchants, scholars, professionals, and, most important, American citizens.

What does this classically American tale have to do with Stephen Miller? Well, Izzy Glosser is his maternal grandfather, and Stephen’s mother, Miriam, is my sister.

I have watched with dismay and increasing horror as my nephew, an educated man who is well aware of his heritage, has become the architect of immigration policies that repudiate the very foundation of our family’s life in this country.

I shudder at the thought of what would have become of the Glossers had the same policies Stephen so coolly espouses— the travel ban, the radical decrease in refugees, the separation of children from their parents, and even talk of limiting citizenship for legal immigrants — been in effect when Wolf-Leib made his desperate bid for freedom. The Glossers came to the U.S. just a few years before the fear and prejudice of the “America first” nativists of the day closed U.S. borders to Jewish refugees. Had Wolf-Leib waited, his family likely would have been murdered by the Nazis along with all but seven of the 2,000 Jews who remained in Antopol. I would encourage Stephen to ask himself if the chanting, torch-bearing Nazis of Charlottesville, whose support his boss seem to court so cavalierly, do not envision a similar fate for him.

ALBANY — In an attempt to work around the White House, Democratic lawmakers in Albany are trying to do what their federal counterparts have so far failed to accomplish: to obtain President Trump’s tax returns.

Albany lawmakers are seeking state tax returns, not the federal ones at the heart of the current standoff in Washington. But a tax return from New York — the president’s home state, and the headquarters of his business empire — could likely contain much of the same financial information as a federal return.

Under a bill that is scheduled to be introduced this week, the commissioner of the New York Department of Taxation and Finance would be permitted to release any state tax return requested by leaders of three congressional committees for any “specific and legitimate legislative purpose.”

President Donald Trump is reportedly not done firing key national security personnel.

CNN is reporting that Trump has ordered White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to fire United States Secret Service director Randolph “Tex” Alles, just one day after the president dismissed Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

One anonymous official tells CNN that the Trump White House is undergoing something close to a full cleansing of people working at important national security positions.

“There is a near-systematic purge happening at the nation’s second-largest national security agency,” the official said.

Other officials rumored to be on the chopping block include United States Citizenship and Immigration Services director Francis Cissna and Office of the General Counsel’s John Mitnick, CNN reports.

Trump has reportedly become “unhinged” as large numbers of migrants have been approaching the United States border in an effort to claim asylum in the country. His displeasure with several of his own national security officials reportedly stems from the fact that they have refused to violate the law to carry out his orders.

“I spent the last couple of years getting yelled at. And you may soon read about some of the more spirited debates I had with the president,” McGahn explained, according to a report from Axios.

Although McGahn didn’t explicitly state that he was referring to the Mueller report, it was heavily implied that’s what he had meant. Axios based its report off of two sources who were at the event.

William Barr is about to have a very bad day tomorrow

Bill Palmer | 10:58 pm EDT April 8, 2019

Even as House Democrats proceed with their strategy to subpoena the Mueller report, subpoena Robert Mueller to testify about his own report, and subpoena William Barr to testify about why he’s been lying about the Mueller report, a quirk of the schedule is about to ensure that Barr has a very bad day tomorrow.

Various officials in the Executive Branch are required to appear before various congressional committees on a regular basis, as part the normal oversight process. Unfortunately for William Barr, he’s scheduled to appear before the House Appropriations Committee tomorrow. What does this appearance have to do with the Mueller report? Officially, nothing; this is supposed to be about the 2020 DOJ budget. But as one might expect, and as CBS News is confirming tonight, the Democrats who control the committee are indeed going to use the hearing to try to corner Barr over his obstruction antics.

That means you can expect the usual routine. House Democrats will use their time to grill William Barr about what’s really in the Mueller report and why he’s trying to cover it up, in the hope that Barr will screw up and say something that tilts the subpoena battle in their favor. The Republicans on the committee will use their time to either complain that the hearing isn’t supposed to be about the Mueller report, or to spin phony pro-Trump conspiracy theories, or both.

The bottom line is that, for the first time, William Barr will have his feet held to the fire over his attempted coverup of the Mueller report. We’ll see what specifically comes of the hearing, but tomorrow can’t possibly go well for Barr – and it’ll result in even louder and more aggressive demands for the Mueller report to be released.

Observation of Trump’s behavior and conduct lead many to question his mental and physical health and/or drug dependency. I am saying that we need to insist a diagnoses be made by having a neuropsych eval done by experts with disclosure to the public.

What they're saying: "The FBI and the Special Counsel's office have determined that disclosure of the Comey Memos ... could reasonably be expected to adversely affect the pending Russia investigation. The Comey Memos are his contemporaneous notes about incidents that are of interest in that investigation ..."

Fmr. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper: It is "stunning and scary" that A.G. Barr would raise the spying allegation.

"The term 'spying' has all kinds of negative connotations and I have to believe he chose that term deliberately."

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Wednesday it was "both stunning and scary" that Attorney General William Barr would tell lawmakers that Donald Trump's 2016 campaign was spied on.

"I thought it was both stunning and scary," Clapper, who served under President Barack Obama, told CNN's Anderson Cooper. "I was amazed at that and rather disappointed that the attorney general would say such a thing. The term 'spying' has all kinds of negative connotations and I have to believe he chose that term deliberately."

A man arrested in connection with fires at three historically black Louisiana churches is a law enforcement official's son, according to local reports.

Authorities said they will announce significant updates in the case -- in which three churches were burned in 10 days -- at a news conference Thursday at 10 a.m. (11 a.m. ET) at the St. Landry Parish Sheriff Public Safety Complex in Opelousas.

Officials with knowledge of the investigation told CNN on Wednesday night that a 21-year old man from St. Landry Parish was arrested in connection with the fires.

CNN has been provided the name of the subject but is not reporting it until it is announced by authorities.

https://hillreporter.com/trump-tweets-a-terribly-incorrect-fox-poll-graphic-30647

This morning, Fox Business posted a Georgetown Poll showing Donald Trump’s approval rating at 55% and economy approval at 58%. The president quickly seized on the graphic tweeting it and writing, “Great News!”

The numbers Fox posted, however, were quickly proven to be wrong. Mo Elleithee, the Director of Georgetown Politics, replied that the numbers were inaccurate.

“I’m the Director of Georgetown Politics,” wrote Elleithee, “and this graphic is incorrect. The Battleground Poll shows 58% approval on the economy. But it shows only 58% approval on the economy. The 55% number is the president’s unfavorable rating (only 40% favorable).”

Poll expert, Harry Enten, from CNN also weighed in on the Fox News graphic. He wrote, “This isn’t right. The Georgetown poll had Trump’s approval at 43%. Further, no poll (not Rasmussen not anybody) has had the President’s approval at 55% or higher nationally in over two years.”

The Rasmussen Poll that Enten references is often very favorable to the president compared to others. The latest Rasmussen survey has Trump at a 51% approval rating. The average of all credible national polls, however, shows Trump at only 41.9% approval with 52.8% disapproving.

Trump became upset with Fox News over their coverage of polls in December of 2018. A poll taken by the network had Trump at a 46% approval rating. He told Fox & Friends host, Harris Faulkner, “Frankly, Fox has always given me a bad poll. I don’t know why that is.”

While Trump is willing to laud polls that are favorable, he has no time for the ones that aren’t. He continued, “The news and the polls are fake. I have the greatest base in history.”

Can we all just appreciate for a moment that the older sister of the sitting President of the United States just retired so as to avoid an inquiry into a decades-long tax fraud scheme she participated in *with the President* (who is still in office)

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/10/us/maryanne-trump-barry-misconduct-inquiry.html

President Trump’s older sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, has retired as a federal appellate judge, ending an investigation into whether she violated judicial conduct rules by participating in fraudulent tax schemes with her siblings.

The court inquiry stemmed from complaints filed last October, after an investigation by The New York Times found that the Trumps had engaged in dubious tax schemes during the 1990s, including instances of outright fraud, that greatly increased the inherited wealth of Mr. Trump and his siblings. Judge Barry not only benefited financially from most of those tax schemes, The Times found; she was also in a position to influence the actions taken by her family.

Judge Barry, now 82, has not heard cases in more than two years but was still listed as an inactive senior judge, one step short of full retirement. In a letter dated Feb. 1, a court official notified the four individuals who had filed the complaints that the investigation was “receiving the full attention” of a judicial conduct council. Ten days later, Judge Barry filed her retirement papers.

In retirement, Judge Barry is entitled to receive annually the salary she earned when she last met certain workload requirements. Though the exact figure was not immediately available, it appears to be between $184,500 and $217,600.

The Times investigation focused on how the profits and ownership of the real estate empire built by the president’s father, Fred C. Trump, were transferred to Donald J. Trump and his siblings, often in ways designed to dodge gift and estate taxes.

Stress in America, or how Donald Trump is making us sick

The latest report, Stress in AmericaTM: Generation Z, looks at the causes and levels of stress among the younger generation, those between the ages of 15 and 21, and reveals what most of us have suspected: Instead of the stressors experienced in 2008 over doing well in school, being liked, and getting into a good college, students today fear for their lives.

For a majority of Gen Z youth, gun violence—mass shootings and school shootings—are significant sources of stress. 75 percent of those in this age group report mass shootings as a significant source of stress, and nearly as many (72 percent) say the same about school shootings or the possibility of them occurring. Around seven in 10 Millennials1 report similar feelings about these events (69 percent about mass shootings and 73 percent about school shootings or the possibility of one occurring).

Their parents are not immune from this either, with 69 percent reporting stress from mass shootings, and 74 percent concerned about school shootings.

We are now raising a generation that is afraid to go to school, with good cause, because the Republicans, at all levels of government, feel that the NRA is more important than their lives. MAGA indeed.

The APA includes methods for dealing with our heavy stress load in each one of its surveys. Most professionals recommend exercise and occasionally disconnecting from the internet.

I think we need to encourage our elected representatives to change the direction in which we are headed. Exercise is not enough to save us. Nor is Robert Mueller (although one can always hope). We need to form a government that we can forget about. One that does not demand our attention all day, every day. One that can govern fairly, openly, and honestly.

Damn, I miss President Obama.

But that changed yesterday, when Trump went after Lieu in surreal fashion – and suffice it to say that Lieu got the best of the exchange

Yes, DC is maddeningly slow; it always has been.

In the other hand, the Democrats are doing *almost* exactly what they should be doing: they’re investigating, issuing subpoenas, conducting real oversight, and holding the administration accountable.

Donald Trump spends all night going completely bonkers


Bill Palmer | 9:09 am EDT April 13, 2019

What does Donald Trump know right now that we don’t? Something appeared to leave Trump shaken on Friday, to the point that he spent the entire evening posting one agitated and increasingly bonkers tweet after another. By the end of it, Trump had cut a jarring swath even by his standards, and it was difficult to figure out what was even going on.

At one point Donald Trump went on a tirade about security and managed to misspell “security” in the process. Hours later, he still hadn’t fixed it. At another point he made the surreal false claim that “so many people” are leaving New York. None of it made any amount of sense, of course. Trump was simply foaming at the mouth in all directions, seemingly out of frustration and apprehension at whatever he thinks is about to happen to him next. What does he know that we don’t?

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Republican senators running for reelection next year should not couple their messaging to President Trump but rather run “independent” campaigns built around how they’ve helped their states.

The Kentucky Republican, who is himself up for reelection, said senators’ races are big enough that they can escape the gravity of the presidential race and establish themselves on their own.

Mr. McConnell also said Republicans must and can reverse disastrous losses in the suburbs that cost them their House majority in November’s elections.
