MSNBC analyst was ‘nauseous’

An MSNBC analyst was ‘nauseous’ about the Trump-Putin meeting. Speaking of nausea…

By Jack Hellner
————————————–

Here’s what’s going on in the press in the wake of the Trump-Putin summit.  NewsBusters has the score:

Heads were exploding over at MSNBC following Monday’s summit between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.  During the 1:00 p.m. Eastern hour of MSNBC Live, the network’s national security analyst and former Obama official Evelyn Farkas lambasted the President’s performance as “despicable” and “outrageous,” and called for “mass resignations” from the Republican Party. 

Such an attractive picture. So let me ask her something:

Was she nauseous when Obama said he would be flexible with Russia?

Nauseous when Hillary did the reset button with Russia?

Nauseous when Obama laughed at Mitt Romney back in 2012 when he said Putin and Russia were dangerous?

Nauseous when Obama reneged on commitment to put missile shields in Poland and the Czech Republic?

Nauseous when Obama called off the cyber-investigation against Russian hacking?

Nauseous when Hillary and Obama let the Russians buy 20% of U.S.-produced uranium?

Nauseous when Obama reneged on our commitment to help Ukraine defend itself from Russian invaders?

Nauseous when Obama refused to enforce his own red line threat in Syria?

Nauseous when the DNC wouldn’t let the intelligence agencies or the Justice Department have access to the very hacked DNC computers?

Nauseous when intelligence agencies and the Justice Department blamed Russia for hacking without even examining the computers?

Nauseous that the DNC and Hillary would produce a fake dossier to get Trump?

Nauseous that the Justice Department used the fake dossier as an excuse to spy on political opponents?

Nauseous when the Obama administration unmasked people around Trump for their own political purposes?

Journalists are worthless, sycophantic puppet-stenographers, because they never gave a damn about whatever Obama and Hillary did.

The Left is Always Wrong

The Left is Always Wrong: Election Meddling Edition

By Tom Trinko
———————————-

Twelve Russians have been indicted for hacking the DNC and releasing DNC emails showing that the DNC had violated its own rules and worked against Bernie and for Hillary in the primaries.

Leftists are talking about the Russians meddling in the U.S. election as a result.  The problem is that while hacking the DNC is illegal and the Russians should be prosecuted, how can telling the voters that the DNC conspired against Bernie be considered “meddling” in our election?

Doesn’t the Washington Post say that “Democracy dies in darkness”?  Which means that if the voters don’t know the truth they can’t vote intelligently. Given that the DNC admits the veracity of the emails, isn’t the voters finding about the DNC’s efforts to suppress a democratic socialist like Bernie using light to remove the darkness?

Think about this: when NBC released the “Access Hollywood” tape did anyone on the left complain about election meddling?  Though NBC claimed that only days before the tape was released someone suddenly remembered the tape, everyone knew, and TMZ  stated, that NBC sat on the tape waiting to release it as an October Surprise.  The release of the tape was clearly intended by NBC to influence the election — otherwise they’d have released it sooner — yet no one on the left worried about election meddling or collusion.

On every issue the left has two standards; one for the left and one for everyone else.  In this case, it’s perfectly fine when parties release false information that is damaging to Trump, but it’s the ultimate evil when someone releases accurate information that hurts a leftist; i.e. Hillary.

But what about the fact that it was the Russians?  Isn’t it worse when a foreigner meddles than when Americans do?

Ask yourself if leftists would consider it meddling if right before the election a British “ex” spy tried to convince the media that a dossier he would later admit contained only unverified rumors from Russian sources that painted Trump in a very bad light was the real deal.

Of course, you don’t need to ask yourself, since we know for a fact that Hillary paid an “ex” spy from Britain to produce a report full of “dirt” on Trump based on Russian sources.  We know that Steele — the “ex” spy — produced such a document and that he told everyone that it was the real deal and that he would have known if his sources were lying even in cases where he never met the actual source. Well, he said that right up until he was sued in England by some of the people he mentioned in the dossier. Then he suddenly changed his tune and declared that the information in the dossier was only a place for a real investigation to start; that nothing in the report was verified.

Steele’s unwillingness to defend in court the claims that he’d told the media and the FBI were all very reliable is clear and unambiguous proof that the dossier is all or mostly all lies.  Because if Steele had actual evidence for any of the claims, he could present it in court and get out of a serious legal situation. That he’s not doing so even though it could save him from potentially very serious legal consequences shows that he doesn’t have any proof to back up his claims.

Yet even though the left now knows that the dossier is bogus, which is why they are suddenly saying that the dossier wasn’t a key reason the investigation into Trump was started, they are not saying that its use was “meddling” in our election. That despite the rumors all coming from Russia and despite the person who vouched for those rumors being British.

To the left, a factually incorrect report on Trump produced by a foreigner, based on sources solely from Russia, and used to attack Trump is not election meddling.

But the Russians leaking factual DNC emails showing that the DNC had lied to Democrat voters about being impartial and had, in fact, violated its own rules and worked hard to torpedo Bernie, democratic socialist par excellence, is election meddling.

What makes the whole story even more bizarre is that, as with all of Mueller’s indictments, there is no claim that the crimes involve any collusion related to the election between the Russians and anyone in Trump’s campaign.  In fact, the FBI made it clear that no Americans were indicted along with the Russian “hackers.”  Yet the left is already generating #FakeNews that this latest indictment is bad news for Trump.

Another interesting issue is that the same leftists who are having a fit over Trump’s “collusion” aren’t bothered by the fact that the full power of the U.S. intelligence establishment was turned against the Trump campaign. They’re also not bothered by the fact that political appointees in the Obama administration, i.e. not supposedly neutral civil servants, unmasked the names Americans whose calls were monitored.

If the ruling Democratic party using national intelligence assets to listen in to the inner workings of the Trump campaign isn’t election “meddling” then it’s unclear what is. Essentially the leftists are saying that it’s kosher for the government to spy on Trump’s campaign to help Hillary.  To use a poker analogy, it’s like one player using a spotter who sees the other player’s cards; but then to the fascist left, where winning is all that matters, anything that helps them is fair game.

Remember, the modern left still calls out Watergate, where some Republicans tried to illegally get intelligence on the Democrat campaign, as the worst thing ever. Yet now when it’s clear that Obama/Hillary did the same thing, but succeeded because they managed to subvert the FBI, far worse than anything Nixon did, leftists say that nothing bad happened.  Watergate was wrong but condemning it while not caring about the FBI spying on a political candidate is hypocrisy at its worst.

But many Americans who get their news from the leftist media won’t hear the truth or take the time to figure out the obvious hypocrisy in the left’s claims. It’s up to you to talk to your friends, coworkers, and relatives. No need to be confrontational. Just mention how it’s horrible that the Russians meddled in the election by peddling fake rumors about Trump to a foreign agent Hillary hired.

Ask them if Democrat political operatives, whose jobs had no relation into any investigation of Trump, reading intelligence collected from the Trump campaign where the names of U.S. citizens were revealed strikes them as meddling.

Ask them if they feel that their knowing about how the DNC persecuted Bernie is bad thing, would they rather have been kept in the dark?

Ask them if they think that the Washington Post will change its slogan to “Democracy dies when the voters know too much.”?

Just My Opinion

It’s Just My Opinion

Like millions of other people, I have been watching with some interest as President Trump has been going around the world trying to do what he thinks is best for his employers.
That would be We, The People.
It’s really been something.

Like the title says, this is just my opinion, certainly your mileage may vary as they say.

I think Trump is a One Man Wrecking Crew when it comes to kicking these Globalists right in the teeth.

The man ain’t afraid of nothing and leaves a trail of wrecked Deep State plans and careers behind him wherever he goes.

I can honestly say that I have never witnessed anything like this in my 58 years on this rock.

I can’t point to any archetypal figure in modern history like him either. Hitler was pretty effective in his own sphere of influence but Trump’s reach is Global.

He is truly the most powerful man on the planet at this time and he is using every ounce of it, blowing peoples minds with his brazen take no prisoners strategy.

The Queen of England?

Meh, he made her wait, then pretty much said stand back while I stomp a mud hole in these weasel fucking politicians you have running the joint.

This is the way it’s gonna be and if you think different then just keep flapping your gums while I make it happen before your eyes.

The Asians know a Golden Dragon when they see one, the English just had Hurricane Trump rearrange their entire political spectrum in two fucking days.

European leaders already got their asses kicked and were all vying to see who could fill his To Go order on his way out.

It’s really quite incredible to watch all this happen in real time.

All of that was just his foreign policy.
He is still working small miracles here at home despite a non stop concerted effort to try and stop anything he wants to do plus the blatant media bias, the Democrats and the Far Left acting like murderous Howler Monkeys strung out on crack and even members of his own party are trying to stab him in the back.
Not to mention this Russian Collusion/Obama/Clinton/FBI hit job he is fending off all at once.
The fact that he is getting anything done at all just causes his detractors to have seizures and that alone is entertainment aplenty.
The next Presidential campaign for 2020 is about to kick off here very shortly so we can all expect even more Lefty insanity if you can even imagine such a thing. I want to know who their gonna sacrifice as a candidate.

I’m also gonna need more popcorn.

Indictments Coming for Hillary

Leftist thugs

Why Leftists Become Thugs

A quick way to come to wisdom about yourself is to understand this: you are what you do. You’re not your good intentions. You’re not your noble feelings. Your deeds are what make you who you are. A man who beats his wife then cries in remorse is a wife-beater. That’s all he is. When he stops punching her — stops for good — then he has a chance to become something else. Then he can cry all he wants. Until then, his tears mean jack-diddly crap. He’s a wife beater. That’s all.

Our friends on the left should learn this truth. The “labor activists” who surrounded Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and her boyfriend in a movie theater, spit on her, taunted him, chased them away; the restaurant workers who refused service to White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders and then followed her family to another location to harass them; the protesters who surrounded Mitch McConnell outside a Kentucky restaurant, telling the 76-year-old Senate majority leader, “We know where you live…” — these people are punks; thugs. Their high purposes, their righteous philosophies, their political certainties — all these are worth exactly as much as a wife-beater’s tears: nothing. They are the bulliers of women and the menacers of old men.

Same goes for Anti-Fa, the gangsters who don masks to assault those who disagree with them. They can call themselves anti-fascists all they want. Doesn’t mean a damn thing. They are what they do: criminals, oppressors, fascists themselves.

Yes, yes. There are bad guys on the right; there are bad guys everywhere. But Barack Obama was the most corrupt and incompetent president of my lifetime. I despised him because of his disdain for American freedoms and the systems that preserve them. But in eight years of his Chicago-style machine administration, assaults on his staff and supporters never became a commonplace, whereas such thuggishness — and increasingly mainstream calls to violence and cruelty — is beginning to become the Democrat Party brand, its norm.

What turns people into wicked punks while they no doubt continue to believe themselves to be decent and good? Bad ideas, that’s what, ideas that give people license to answer words and policies with terror. What’s the bad idea on the left? Control. The notion that the left’s cause is so righteous it needs to pay no mind to liberty but simply deserves to win by any means necessary. Let five judges on the Supreme Court make law and damn the “outdated” Constitution. Give unelected bureaucracies like the EPA the power to regulate people’s lives without appeal or oversight. Give ignoble gnomes like Peter Strzok the wherewithal to criminalize the political opposition. And of course, bring on the socialism: a philosophy that declares a person’s work, his time, his life, his property belong not to him but to the state. Control.

The belief that you are so superior to others that you should be allowed to control them — it’s that that inevitably moves people to violence and cruelty. In movies about American slavery, filmmakers always try to impress you with the brutality of the institution by showing rapes and whippings. But that gives a mistaken impression. Slavery isn’t wrong because masters rape and whip their slaves. Masters rape and whip their slaves because slavery is wrong; because when you think yourself so superior to others that you no longer need their consent to govern them, you have created in your own mind the right to harass and hurt and bully them. You have turned yourself into a monster.

Or into a leftist.

12 Russians

12 Russians cast in Bob Mueller’s theater of the absurd

By Gary Gindler
—————————————-

While President Trump sat in the historic chair of Winston Churchill at the official residence of British prime ministers in a London suburb, the special prosecutor Mueller indicted twelve spy officers of the Russian Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff (i.e., Military Intelligence, commonly abbreviated as GRU).

I listened with horror to Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein’s press conference, and with no less horror, I read the indictment.  Well, Friday the 13th usually does not bode well.

The enormity of the situation is that Mueller violated the unwritten rules of counter-espionage, which were forged through many trials and errors over thousands of years.  One of these unwritten rules says the detected spy no longer poses a threat.  It is not necessary to arrest, or indict, or imprison him.  You can try to convert him into a double agent, but the probability of success cannot be predicted.

A much more effective method of working with an unmasked spy is to use the spy as a channel for disinformation.  Keep him in the dark.  Use the spy so he does not even know about it, and that his reputation among his colleagues and his leadership remained untainted.

Mueller’s indictment publicly disclosed the names of a dozen GRU officers engaged in computer espionage.  What will the GRU leadership do?  Of course, they will begin to treat their work with a certain degree of disbelief, knowing that they are all potential targets.  In other words, Mueller slammed the door in front of the FBI counterintelligence officers.  The FBI will not be able to flip these Russians, nor provide them with disinformation.

This is only a small part of the subversive activities of Mueller’s team.  Much more significant damage to America could be from the trial itself.

Mueller expects that this will not happen – Russia will never extradite GRU officers.  However, Mueller’s action may trigger an unusual response from the Russians.  They can send one of the indicted officers to America on a crucial provocative mission.  GRU may choose, for example, the prettiest guy with excellent English; hire an expensive and prestigious American law firm; provide money; and put him on a plane.  He is facing just a few years in comfortable federal prison.  Per Russian espionage tradition, one year in jail will be counted as five, and he will return to his homeland a hero.

To put him in prison, Mueller will have to present evidence to the court.  In this lies the problem.

Intentionally or unintentionally, Mueller revealed in the indictment information no one should ever have known.  Mueller made it clear that the counterintelligence of the United States had obtained access to the GRU computer network, from which practically all the data for the indictment were taken.  Lawyers for an impudently smiling Russian officer will demand (on legal grounds) all the details of how information about their client was obtained.

This is the most sacred triad in intelligence: means, methods, and sources.  To protect them, all intelligence services of the world spend more money and effort than on espionage itself.  Now Mueller, instead of utilizing these Russians in accordance with unwritten rules, has accused Russian officers publicly and will have to present evidence of their guilt in not a closed, but an open trial.

Leftists in America are dissatisfied with the fact that Mueller time and again has found no evidence that Trump is Putin’s puppet.  The right-wingers in America are unhappy with the fact that Mueller recruited a team of prosecutors exclusively from Hillary’s ardent admirers.

Professional counterintelligence agents from the FBI resent this theater of the absurd.  From a national security point of view, it does not matter why Mueller did it the day after the Democrats’ disgraceful behavior during Agent Strzok’s hearings in the House of Representatives, or why Mueller did it almost on the eve of the meeting between Trump and Putin in Helsinki.

From a national security point of view, the much more important question is why he did it.  Mueller’s move was not judicial, but political, at the potential expense of national security.

McDonald’s

McDonald’s, tossed salad, and toilet paper

By Jeannie DeAngelis
——————————————-

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation.  Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement.  Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated.

Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world.

It’s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers.  These restaurant workers migrate from countries where, prior to kneading tortilla dough, post-toilet hand-washing is not required.

Once they’re here in America, lack of hygienic practices translate into filthy hands arranging peaches in the produce rack and hombres with God knows what under their fingernails placing the apple slices in the see-through plastic containers stacked neatly in the Starbucks display counter.

Simply put, not only are illegals infiltrating our culture, defying our laws, and costing us oodles of money, but they are also infecting America’s food with foreign-born, albeit culturally diverse excrement.

Let’s face it: pooping outdoors is cultural diversity at its finest, and because poor people are usually the ones doing the illegal migrating, with them come elimination practices better left in the Andes.  Remember the E. coli-laden cilantro and romaine lettuce that had human waste on them belonging to farm workers who relieved themselves in the field while harvesting the crops?

Nonetheless, if by chance cilantro does make it from field to factory without the addition of feces and toilet paper, raw food always makes its way to restaurants staffed with individuals who, rather than flush, toss dirty Charmin into the corner of the restroom.  More disturbingly, by and large, those doing the toilet paper-tossing are mostly non-natives who cannot read the sign written in English that clearly says: “Employees must wash hands before returning to work.”

As a result, at Illinois and Iowa McDonald’s restaurants, 90 people were recently infected with the Cyclospora parasite.  For those who don’t know, the most common symptom of cyclospora is watery diarrhea, appetite and weight loss, intestinal pain, nausea, and fatigue.

After the outbreak, health officials alerted the public, saying that “people can become infected [with cyclospora] by consuming food or water contaminated with the microscopic parasite.”  Good to know.

What health officials haven’t admitted is that the only way for that particular parasite to end up on the veggies is through the hands of workers contaminated with the contents of plague-ridden intestines.

That’s why, based on its ethnically diverse staff, when McDonald’s raw salads are infected with cyclospora, it’s not a surprise.  People “deserving a break” venture to McDonald’s, and rather than eat a hamburger and fries, which burns the feces off on the grill and in the hot oil, they choose a salad because it’s supposedly a healthier choice.  Wrong.

Unbeknownst to the 90 customers currently hugging the porcelain throne in Iowa and Illinois, the “crisp … full of flavor” menu item they ordered was probably seasoned with the feculence of workers handling the “chopped romaine, baby spinach, baby kale, red leaf lettuce, ribbon-cut carrots and grape tomatoes.”  Yummy.

Americans who oppose the ongoing invasion currently sweeping over the nation like a bacteria-infested tsunami have many reasons for how they feel.  Meanwhile, the issue largely ignored is how illegal immigration ultimately impacts the health of Americans eating food handled by food service workers who come from motherlands who toss the salad after tossing the toilet paper.

American Matador

Donald Trump: American Matador

By Michael Curtis

This is the season of the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, at the Sanfermines festival, when hundreds of foolhardy youngsters run through the street, as has been the custom for 700 years, defying the animals intent on goring and trampling them.  In 2017, thousands engaged in this diversion, and 64 were injured, in the event that Ernest Hemingway in his 1926 book The Sun Also Rises called a battlefield with brave heroes in the equivalent bullring.

The political international bullring is now the arena for President Donald Trump to display diplomatic skill if not comparable bravado in running or being chased or being gored by NATO members through the streets of Brussels in July 11-12, 2018, sipping tea with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor on July 15 and discussing with Prime Minister Theresa May and perhaps his “friend” Boris Johnson the turmoil in British politics, and going to Helsinski, Finland, on July 16 to meet with Russian president Vladimir Putin, presently basking in the afterglow of the World Cup.  The open question is whether Trump will, like Hemingway’s matador, let the bull pass so close that the man and the animal are one sharply etched mass.

Trump is engaged in two interrelated encounters: the enigmatic Russian regime under Putin, and the NATO trans-Atlantic alliance, founded in 1949, led by the U.S. since its creation, and now numbering 29 members.  An open question is whether going to Helsinski, a few days after Brussels, implies Trump’s displeasure with NATO.  The meeting with Putin reinforces Trump’s emphatic call at the G7 conference on June 8, 2018 for Russia to be readmitted to the group from which it was expelled in 2014 because of the annexation of Crimea.  NATO, exacerbated by Trump’s call, is unlikely to agree with him that Crimea is part of Russia because its people speak Russian. …

The left is freaking out

Left-Wing Antifa Terrorists ‘Freaking Out’ over Proposed ‘Unmasking’ Law

LOIC VENANCE/AFP/Getty Images
LOIC VENANCE/AFP/Getty Images
 

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask.

Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about,  promotes, enflames and  approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.

Antifa has also been responsible for untold amounts of vandalism and property damage, and targets the alt-right.

The  Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018 can mean additional fines and prison terms of up to 15 years. The Hill reports the “bill was introduced by Republican Rep. Dan Donovan (N.Y.) and is co-sponsored by GOP Reps. Pete King (R-NY), Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and Ted Budd (R-NC).”

Ironically, this proposed law is similar to laws passed decades ago in states like Georgia and Alabama to stop another terrorist group formed by far-left Democrats, the Ku Klux Klan. According to the far-left New York Times, Ohio and West Virginia already have similar laws on the books.

Unless it is Halloween, Mardi Gras, or some other kind of celebration, there is no legitimate reason to disguise who you are in public, unless you intend to do something illegal and do not wish to be identified.

And since our establishment media choose to encourage, stoke, dismiss, foment, downplay, and excuse harassment, violence and property damage against Trump supporters; since the media are normalizing and even making heroes of violent, left-wing thugs, it is important that law enforcement have all the tools necessary to stop this epidemic of lawlessness.

Nevertheless, people are still freaking out. Carmichael Monaco, a member of the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council, a New York City-based activist group, told Vice Tuesday:

[The unmasking law] takes a pro-fascist stance in its very name, and doubtlessly in its enforcement. In the current political climate, antifascists who speak out against fascism, racism, xenophobia, etc. are routinely harassed, threatened, and attacked by the far right, often supported by the police, who are notably exempted here. Families and friends of antifascists also become targets of far right violence. The wearing of a mask is an act of self-defense often necessary to ensure one’s right to free speech.

“It’s a law that threatens to clamp down on direct action politics more broadly. I think it sets a disturbing precedent,” Mark Bray, a professor at Dartmouth who studies human rights and radical politics told Vice.

No examples of Antifa being victims or targets are cited anywhere in the Vice piece. But…

Here are 352 (and counting) verified acts of violence and harassment against Trump supporters, much of it committed by Antifa terrorists wearing masks.

Trump Is Cutting Off Big Labor

Trump Is Cutting Off Big Labor From Skimming Americans’ Medicaid Payments And Unions Are Furious

Tim Pearce | Energy Reporter
——————————————————————————-

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is blistering at a proposed regulation that would prevent the union from siphoning fees from American workers’ Medicaid payments.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced a proposed rule Tuesday that would require Medicaid payments to go directly to healthcare workers, ending a 2014 Obama-era rule that let third parties, such as unions and insurance companies, skim off a share of the paycheck before the worker saw any of it. (RELATED: CMS Rule Strikes Obama-Era Regulation That Pays For Third-Party Fringe Benefits Instead Of Health Care)

The SEIU, one of the largest public-sector unions in the U.S., referred to the proposed rule “as part of the [Trump] administration’s broad, coordinated attack against working people.”

“The proposed rule targets these home care workers and is designed to stop them from contributing their own wages to support their union in the same way that teachers, police and firefighters do,” the SEIU said in a statement. “This proposal is a transparent attempt to interfere with workers’ freedom to choose to join together in a union and advocate for higher wages, better training, and basic benefits like affordable healthcare and paid sick time that are crucial to ensure quality home care for our parents, grandparents and children.”

Though the Obama rule legalizing the practice went into effect in 2014, unions have been skimming money from Medicaid payments for nearly two decades, according to Freedom Foundation director for labor policy Maxford Nelson.

The practice has netted unions billions of dollars from public-sector home healthcare workers forced to pay union dues or “agency fees” equivalent to 85 percent of a dues payment to cover the cost of representation for non-members.

“It is very heartening to see this administration taking the first practical steps to stop states and unions from deducting money from the Medicaid checks of home caregivers serving our society’s disabled and elderly,” Nelson told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a statement. “This illegal and exploitive practice has victimized hundreds of thousands of caregivers. It has only been allowed to persist because it generated significant funds for a politically-connected special interest group.”

The Supreme Court ruled in June that “agency fees” violated public-sector employees’ right to free speech for forcing them to subsidize government lobbying, in the form of union representatives negotiating with government officials, that they did not agree with.

Trump vs. the Democrats

Trump vs. the Democrats: Aces Galore!

By Elad Hakim
——————————–

Have you ever watched a tennis match where the server consistently loses the point because the player returning the serve is simply better, smarter, and more talented? After a while, the server gets desperate and begins to throw everything over the net in the hopes that something works.

Welcome to the modern-day Democrat. Like the server, the Democrats have tried to throw everything against President Trump and/or Republicans, hoping that something would stop his/their momentum. Despite their efforts, each attempt has been swatted away and/or returned for an ace.

First, Democrats tried to pin President Trump’s triumphant election victory on alleged Russian collusion, the nature of which they have been unable to prove despite a long and costly investigation by Robert Mueller. To date, the investigation continues, additional money and resources are being wasted, and no evidence of collusion has been found. As a matter of fact, the investigation reeks of bias given the fact that the FBI agent who originally put the investigation into motion couldn’t stand the president (and wanted him to lose) as disclosed in the IG report.

After the tragic events in Parkland, the Democrats then turned their attention to the Second Amendment and politicized this tragedy because Republicans were not necessarily willing to severely limit their right to bear arms pursuant to the Second Amendment. In response, some Republicans, including Governor Rick Scott, addressed some of their concerns by signing new gun regulations. This was not enough for the Democrats, who called for an all-out ban on semi-automatic weapons (this would cover many handguns, etc. today). Fortunately, the Second Amendment remains strong. As Democrats saw that this issue was losing steam, they moved on.

Democrats then seized on the North Korea issue. President Trump was scheduled to meet the North Korean dictator in a history-making summit. While this was an incredible accomplishment, some Democrats criticized President Trump for making certain concessions during the negotiations and/or expressed displeasure with the way that the president described the release of several prisoners who were being detained by North Korea. Chuck Schumer stated:

“We can’t be fooled into giving the North Korean regime credit for turning (over) Americans that never should have been detained in the first place,” Schumer said. “It is so troubling to hear President Trump say that Kim Jong-Un treated the Americans excellently.”

Obviously, the summit took place and, while a lot of work remains to be done, the two countries have better diplomatic relations now than they had before President Trump took office. This was yet another Democratic misstep.

Democrats then turned to immigration as their next hot-topic issue. They argued that President Trump’s zero-tolerance policy tore kids away from their families. Of course, this was the law before President Trump took office, but that was a “technicality” that the left was willing to ignore to score political points. In response, President Trump issued an executive order keeping children and families who entered the country illegally together. Of course, even though this directly addressed their initial complaints, Democrats criticized the executive order because it allowed illegal immigrants to be held “indefinitely.” To their dismay, the Supreme Court also upheld President Trump’s travel ban. Once again, Democrats were on the losing end. They needed something else.

Recently, Justice Anthony Kennedy announced that he will be retiring from the Supreme Court. Upon hearing this, Democrats immediately began to attack President Trump’s potential list of nominees before he even narrowed down the list of prospects. For example, Chuck Schumer threatened that no Republican nominee would be confirmed from Trump’s list of twenty-five potential candidates.

Democrats started painting a picture that a Republican-leaning Supreme Court would overturn Rose v. Wade, take away a woman’s right to choose, limit the rights of immigrants, etc. President Trump is scheduled to announce his nominee on July 9, 2018. Even though Democrats will likely refuse to confirm a Republican nominee, Republicans, including Mitch McConnell, can always resort to the “nuclear” option if need be (this does not create good precedent, however). Time will tell what happens in this chapter.

Although this piece only covers several issues, many would argue that the set and match ended long ago. Democrats are suffering losses everywhere, including in the courts, within their own party (e.g. the #WalkAway movement), and in the important court of public opinion. Americans want results, which the president and Republicans are delivering.  So long as this continues, it should be game, set, and match for the president, Republicans, and their followers.

CO2 Emissions Hit 67-Year Low

CO2 Emissions Hit 67-Year Low In Trump’s America, As Rest-Of-World Rises

We suspect you won’t hear too much about this from the liberal mainstream media, or the environmental movement, or even Al Gore – but, according to the  latest energy report from The Energy Information Administration (EIA), under President Trump, per-capita carbon dioxide emissions are now the lowest they’ve been in nearly seven decades.

Even more interesting is the fact that US carbon emissions dropped while emissions from energy consumption for the rest of the world increased by 1.6%, after little or no growth for the three years from 2014 to 2016.

The U.S. emitted 15.6 metric tons of CO2 per person in 1950. After rising for decades, it’s declined in recent years to 15.8 metric tons per person in 2017, the lowest measured levels in 67 years.

And as The Daily Caller reports, in the last year, U.S. emissions fell more than 0.5% while European emissions rose 2.5% (and Chinese emissions rose 1.6% along with Hong Kong’s 7.0% surge), according to BP world energy data – an ironic turn of events given Europe’s shaming of Trump for leaving the Paris climate accord.

Mexico’s voting system

We could learn a thing or two from Mexico’s voting system

By Silvio Canto, Jr.
—————————————-

Down in Mexico, elections are on Sunday, and everyone is supposed to vote.  The new president will take over in December, five months away.

President Trump and “Presidente-Electo” Andrés López-Obrador spoke by phone last week.  They say that it went well.  By the way, I will not be surprised if the two men meet in person, sort of like when President-Elect Reagan and President López-Portillo shook hands in January 1981 at one of the border bridges.

Mexico can teach us a thing or two about voting.  The Mexicans have a wonderful voter ID system, as my friend Allan Wall explained:

Each Mexican voter has a government-issued photographic voter ID card, which he presents to election authorities.  They have a book with the photograph of each and every voter precinct.  Each precinct has such a book.

Across from the election authorities are seated representatives from various political parties.  When the election authority at the table calls the name of the voter, his name is checked off in the precinct book.  The voter also has his thumb stained with ink that wears off in a few days.

It’s a wonderful system, and everyone south of the border speaks highly of it.

Recently, I told a Mexican that some Democrats call it racist to require a photo ID.  He looked at me with astonishment and told me to explain it again.  I did, and he used some expletive to describe the critics of photo ID.

When it comes to voting, and the integrity of voting, Mexico is doing it better.
