PRESIDENT TRUMP’S STRANGE ENDORSEMENT

For the first eight months of his presidency, Donald Trump has been continually thwarted by a combination of the left-wing media, the “deep state” bureaucracy, the Democrats and the establishment Republicans. On his own, President Trump has made dramatic and positive executive orders, but his legislative accomplishments have been disappointing due to the powerful forces arrayed against him.

Theoretically, the President should have been able to achieve all of his goals because the Republicans control all branches of government. Regrettably, the uncooperative congressional leadership has not produced any major victories for the President or his 63 million supporters.

In Case You Were Planning To Float Any Long Term Loans ...

Now it is David Meade, a professing Christian, who is predicting a world’s end and rightfully causing gaping mouths and eye rolls from people who are already skeptics of any sort of spirituality. Thank you, David. Regardless of the special meanings you may have applied to your false prophecy, you’ve given the world yet another opportunity to laugh at God, His Son and his precious word, the Bible.

In a bizarre combination of numerology and astrology, stirred in with some of the Bible’s Book of Revelation, Mr Meade has calculated end of the world ‘as we know it’  on Saturday, September 23. Look out. Put on your aluminum foil hats and scuba suits before bed tonight.

UNMASKING POWER’S ABUSE OF POWER

President Obama’s UN Ambassador Samantha Power was reportedly “unmasking” Americans almost on a daily basis right up to President Trump’s inauguration, which bolsters Trump’s claim that the Obama administration tried to rig last year’s election by spying on the then-GOP candidate’s campaign.

Fox News is reporting that in the closing months of the Obama administration, Irish-born Power reportedly made more than 260 requests to identify Americans whose names turned up in foreign intelligence collection, a process called unmasking. Why an envoy to the United Nations would be involved in unmasking anyone, in this case focusing on the private communications of hundreds of Americans, has not been explained.


The protector of Obama’s legacy declares he will not vote for Graham-Cassidy

This might turn out worse than “skinny repeal.” I really thought the fact that it was his buddy’s bill might get him on board. Guess not:

President Trump Eyeing Major Changes to Disastrous Nuclear Deal with Iran

President Trump used his address to the United Nations General Assembly on September 19th to lash out at Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). He called it an “embarrassment” and “one of the worst and one-sided transactions the U.S. has ever entered into,” warning the General Assembly that “you haven’t heard the last on it, believe me.” President Trump said on Wednesday that he has made up his mind on what to do about the JCPOA, but would not disclose his decision publicly at this time. There are reports that the president is leaning towards refusing to sign the next certification to Congress of Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA by the deadline of October 15th.  This would place the matter in Congress’s lap to decide within 60 days whether to re-impose the sanctions that had been lifted as a result of the JCPOA’s implementation. If Congress does so, the whole deal will likely unravel.

Communism Never Died, It Was Cleverly Repackaged for the Historically Impaired and Useful Idiots

“For us in Russia, communism is a dead dog. For many people in the West, it is still a living lion.” — Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

In 1950 Congress passed the Internal Security Act and, four years later, the Communist Control Act. It condemned communism and the Communist Party of the United States. Today a sizeable portion of Congress actually belongs to the Communist Party U.S.A. or is sympathetic to it. In a recent poll, 40 percent of Americans prefer communism to capitalism.

In 1954 Congress delineated penalties for anyone belonging to a party or a group calling for the violent overthrow of the United States. Just being a member, however, was not enough reason for arrest or penalty.  Today members of Congress, public citizens, and illegals call for the overthrow of our government without any penalties.

Kimmel prescribes ignorance, again

In his latest health care diatribe, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel says that health care is not his “area of expertise.”

Truer words have never been spoken.

Evict Hillary Clinton From Living Rent-Free In America’s Head

The cat’s finally out of the bag.  It’s a nasty, spitting, and scratching one whose sharp claws refuse to let go of the necks of all those who voted for a better America back on November 8th:

Jimmy Kimmel on health care: ‘Am I supposed to just be quiet about this?’

I rather like Jimmy Kimmel when he’s just being funny. But for whatever lamentable reason, that’s no longer the job description of late night television talk hosts. Whereas Johnny Carson gabbed with celebrities and the younger version of David Letterman gave us stupid pet tricks, today’s late night hosts have decided their job is to moralize over political issues and bash Donald Trump at every opportunity.

Kimmel has been especially lauded for this because of his emotional tale of his young son with heart problems. Because Kimmel thinks (incorrectly) that children like his son couldn’t get coverage without ObamaCare, he has tabbed himself the moral conscience of health care reform - and an awful lot of other people have decided to cede him this role.

NYT Reporter: Hillary thinks it was the media’s ‘job to get Hillary Clinton elected.’ ...Well, wasn’

It doesn’t happen often but when it does - when I agree with Hillary Clinton - I like to make sure everyone knows about it.  I’m fair and unbiased like that. In this case, I’m talking about Hillary Clinton’s assertion that the “press didn’t do its job in 2016.” She’s 100% right. They didn’t.

You may think I’m going to go into a rant about how the media has been giving Hillary Clinton a free pass since the 80’s, but I’m not.  That’s not the point she’s making either.  She thinks the press failed because its job was to get her elected.  She, as we all know, was not elected.  That can’t be allowed to be her fault, so the media has become one of her scapegoats.

Tucker Carlson calls out Rob Meathead Reiner over Hollywood’s collusion with China

Hollywood loves China. Despite the country’s longstanding tradition of fascism, human rights abuses, and anti-American geopolitical efforts, movie studios just can’t wait to bow down before the Chinese government. A film that bombs in its native U.S. can turn a massive profit - sometimes even earning a sequel - thanks to the power of that sweet, sweet, communist moolah. In short, China spends a lot of money on movies.

...At least, it spends a lot of money on movies approved by its hyper-authoritarian censorship board.

Seattle’s pedophile mayor resigns under pressure

Seven months ago, openly gay Seattle Mayor Ed Murray (D), who resigned his office last week, angrily asserted that charges of child molestation against him were untrue.

Channeling Bill and Hillary Clinton, he called his alleged sexual victims liars and claimed he was the victim of a right-wing witch-hunt because he was gay:

Murray—who has championed gay rights over his career in the Legislature and now as mayor—has claimed the accusations against him are false and part of an anti-gay political conspiracy against him.


Mueller team under fire for ‘brass-knuckle’ tactics in bid to squeeze Manafort

When a report surfaced that federal agents picked the lock on Paul Manafort’s front door for a surprise raid over the summer while the former Trump campaign chairman was in bed, it was also a wake-up call for prominent Houston attorney Tom Kirkendall.

“Here is a United States citizen where the FBI is coming in, picking his lock, and raiding his home in the early morning, over what? It doesn’t matter which side you’re on. It’s just crazy. We’re not the Soviet Union. It’s appalling,” said Kirkendall, who has worked on cases involving one of the special counsel’s key investigators, Andrew Weissmann.—More….

VIDEO: CNN’s Don Lemon asks Bill Nye . . . are we doing enough to address the root cause of hurrican

You all know what Bill Nye is. He’s a non-scientist who claims the mantle of “science educator” and hectors the rest of us for not accepting every scientific claim he gets behind. Quite condescendingly at that.

Don Lemon is somewhat more interesting to me only in the sense that when he really gets rolling, he seems to totally get lost in the absurdity of the questions he’s asking. This is a guy who once wondered aloud on air if a missing jetliner had been taken by aliens, with absolutely no apparent sense of irony or humor, as humor is certainly not Lemon’s thing. So here he is, seriously asking out loud on live television if “we” are doing enough to “address the root causes” of hurricanes.

You know where he’s going with it. It’s a setup for Nye to moralize about “climate change.” But it’s really something to behold Lemon suggesting that human beings can find a “root cause” for hurricanes as if they are just like poverty or drug abuse, and to do so with a totally straight face, since self-importance leaves no room for a smile:

Germany’s $800 Billion Merkel-Made Climate Policy Disaster

By 2030, the eastern German town of Poedelwitz will likely be razed to get at the rich veins of coal beneath its half-timbered houses. The reason: Chancellor Angela Merkel’s effort to steer Germany toward greener energy, which has unexpectedly meant booming demand for dirty coal.

While Merkel aims to wean the country from nuclear power and boost renewable energy, the shift has been slow—Germany’s 140-plus coal-fired plants last year supplied 40 percent of the country’s electricity—and Poedelwitz is flanked by open-pit lignite mines that feed a 2 gigawatt power plant a few miles away.—More…

‘JUSTICE-PRICING’: Filmmaker Charges White Males $5 More For Tickets

Super-woke Canadian filmmaker Shiraz Higgins has implemented his own so-called “justice-pricing” policy, where he charges white males an extra $5 to view his movie.

The 27-year-old filmmaker (yes, he’s a millennial, can you believe it?) is charging white males $15 a ticket and all others $10, apparently as a way to level-out all that white male privilege.—More…
