The President is Making Promises Great Again

The President is Making Promises Great Again
By announcing that the United States would move our embassy to Jerusalem and recognize the historic city as the capital of Israel, President Donald Trump has once again delivered on a key campaign promise.

In his first year in office, President Trump has made it a refreshing habit to fulfill his pledges to the American people. Whether it is removing the United States from the odious trade deal known as the Trans Pacific Partnerships (TPP) or bowing out of the expensive and unfair Paris Climate Agreement, President Trump has been keeping true to the vows he made as a candidate. 

In the case of the Jerusalem decision, President Trump is acting with courage, while previous Presidents only made hollow campaign promises.

Everybody in the Media Knew

Everybody in the Media Knew
“Everybody f____g knew,” a top Hollywood screenwriter wrote of Harvey Weinstein. “Everybody knew” about Matt Lauer at NBC, Variety reports, and it “wasn’t even considered a secret.” “Every female in the press corps knew that, right, don’t get in elevator with him,” ABC’s Cokie Roberts said of Rep. Conyers.

Everybody knew.

The #MeToo sexual harassment scandals have hit CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, NPR, PBS, Vox, New Republic, Mother Jones. Forget Matt Lauer and Charlie Rose. They were just the talent. Their big decisions were limited to which hairpiece looked best in all three mirrors and which naïve intern to prey on this month. The heads of the men who actually make the news are rolling left and right.

Nominating Warren would doom Dems’ chances in 2020

Nominating Warren would doom Dems’ chances in 2020
CHICAGO—Many Democrats—probably a majority—believe Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is the perfect person to replace the aging Bernie Sanders as the party’s torch-bearer for progressive causes in 2020.

But nominating the shrillish Warren would be a massive mistake for Democrats, and making her president would be even worse for America.

There’s no question Warren could win the ivory tower left-wing academics, alt-left media and progressive enclaves in states such as Vermont, Massachusetts, California and New York.

Impeach Mueller!

Impeach Mueller!

IMPEACH TRUMP! IMPEACH TRUMP! IMPEACH TRUMP!

That is the screech we’re about to hear emanating from the denizens of the swamp. Sure Maxine Waters and a few others have been singing this song since election night when their plans for the last nail in our coffin went down in flames. Now it’s beginning to percolate through the monotone media megaphone. And though this was predicted in this column by this author before the inauguration, it still has a jarring impact on the senses.

Back in the Dream Times when the Deep State was able to turn Watergate into a Silent Coup the precedent was set. If someone tries to overturn the moneychanger’s tables they must be destroyed. If it’s a president, even one elected for the sole purpose of adding some reality to the mirage of our functioning oligarchy which portrays itself as a dysfunctional democratic republic, they must be hounded out of office, disgraced, and discredited.

Speaker Ryan gives Rep. Trent Franks the heave-ho over sexual harassment claims that make no sense

Rep. Trent Franks

Conservative champion Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) unexpectedly announced his resignation tonight, effective Jan. 31 in the new year. If the reason for his departure stated in a Washington Times article is correct, Franks is being railroaded by GOP leadership for the sake of crass political expediency.

Franks and his wife have dealt with infertility by having twins through a surrogate mother, and he acknowledges discussing surrogacy around the office. He just recently learned that these discussions made two female staff members “uncomfortable.”

Another Democrat in the Senate Could Set the Stage For Nuclear Tragedies for Millions

 Another Democrat in the Senate Could Set the Stage For Nuclear Tragedies for Millions
When considering whom to support in the coming special election for the United States Senate, we must consider that a vote to empower the Democratic party on a federal and Congressional level (as opposed to local Democrats on a state legislature or a city council) is a vote in support of policies such as the Obama Iran deal now in effect, that circumvented the treaty requirements of the consent of 2/3 of the Senators present. The obviously unconstitutional Obama Iran deal propped up – and continues to prop up—a regime that is developing nuclear weapons with the continuing promise of “Death to America,” and “Death to Israel.” This is also the regime that is the world’s most significant state sponsor of terrorism throughout the rest of the world as well, with the proliferation of increasingly sophisticated and deadly conventional weapons.

Sacrificing Al Franken

Sacrificing Al Franken

With Democrat cutlasses poking his back, Al Franken, the junior senator from Minnesota who can’t keep his hands to himself, has reluctantly walked the plank to boost his party’s image after eight women accused him of sexual misconduct.

The most prominent accuser is radio host Leeann Tweeden who claims the professional vulgarian who has a long, well-documented track record of making crude remarks about sexually assaulting women, kissed and groped her without her consent.

Franken’s speech under duress on the Senate floor yesterday was defiant and bursting with self-pity. Only a true believer would take it seriously. Franken certainly did not. He wouldn’t even commit to a specific resignation date, saying only that he would leave office in the coming weeks, a non-binding promise if ever there was one.

Buh-bye, now.

Are you like me?  Do you like watching the left-wing dumpster fire that is the “Morning Joe” panel?  Or, are you not like me? Do you look to the Morning Joe crew for incisive, well-reasoned, news analysis?

Either way, you’re out of luck because Morning Joe has lost another of its regular contributors.

Tim Kaine, who speaks Spanish, demands information on secret Congressional harassment payouts be mad

Tim Kaine
Some of you might, just barely, remember the name “Tim Kaine.” You may not be able to place it with 100% certainty, but you probably have some sort of vague recollection that a guy named Tim Kaine did something a year or so ago. 

Allow me to jog your memory.

Tim Kaine is a Senator who speaks Spanish - fluently.  “So what,” you say? Well, if you’re a Democrat, that’s enough to qualify you for a major political office. Thanks to his astonishing lingual capabilities, it was determined that he would be the Vice-Presidential candidate for one of the worst campaigns in human history.

Economy adds 228,000 jobs in November, which is pretty good but well short of we can do

Economy adds 228,000 jobs in November
Don’t get me wrong. I’ll take it. With unemployment at historically low rates (The U-6 is at 7.9 percent; the U-3 is at 4.1 percent) and you’re adding jobs, the challenge is going to be finding people to fill them. The report notes that wages aren’t rising as fast as the number of jobs itself, but that will change as more qualified workers emerge to pursue the jobs and employers find the higher wages worth paying.

We’re basically at full employment right now with one big honkin’ caveat: If those who have exited the workforce ever decide to re-enter it in massive numbers (and they’re starting to but only in a trickle), we’ll need a lot more job growth than this:

Employers added 228,000 jobs last month in a sign the labor market remains healthy despite worker shortages and two months of hurricane-related volatility, but wage growth remained tepid.

So the sexual harassment case that’s taken down Trent Franks is . . . really weird

Trent Franks
This is one is just plain weird, and it’s got me wondering if we’ve now crossed the Rubicon from legitimate sexual harassment to anything at all that someone can claim after the fact made them “feel uncomfortable,” whatever that might mean.

The same day Al Franken announced his resignation for unwanting kissing and butt- and boob-groping he claims he didn’t do, Republican Congressman Trent Franks of Arizona resigns too. What did he do? Grab boobs? Steal kisses? Expose himself?

Er . . . not even in the same ballpark:

Chatting Sexual Harassment With Lib Relatives

Chatting Sexual Harassment With Lib Relatives
After spending the last four months moving from Florida and settling into our new home in West Virginia, Mary and I are on the road again. We are flying to campaign for Judge Moore in the Alabama senate race. Moore’s democrat opponent, Doug Jones, is a horrible deceitful man. Jones supports slaughtering babies even up to the point of birth. Jones supports Planned Parenthood trafficking baby body parts for profit. American loving Alabamians, you must get out and vote against Doug Jones. Jones is an anti-America and Trump-resistance operative disguised as a good guy.

We drove 3 hours to Baltimore the day before our flight to fly out of BWI. This gave me an opportunity to visit and chat with several relatives. Most of my black relatives believe Trump is racist. They reject truth/facts, clinging to their emotion-driven loyalty to democrats.

John Lewis refuses to attend opening of civil rights museum because the president will be there

John Lewis
Let me see if I have this straight: If Donald Trump was invited to attend the opening of a civil rights museum and he refused, surely that would be racist. But if he does attend, that’s an outrage because he’s Donald Trump.

So it is in the twisted mind of John Lewis.

No, UN Amb. Nikki Haley did not say the U.S will be skipping the Olympics

No, UN Amb. Nikki Haley did not say the U.S will be skipping the Olympics
Yesterday, I talked about my love of the Winter Olympics.  I wasn’t exaggerating.  I’m kind of obsessed with it. So, however bummed I might be about the Russians being banned, I’d be a thousand times more upset if the Americans decided to skip the games.

This morning, there was a flurry of headlines suggesting that Pyeongchang, South Korea might be a little too close to North Korea for comfort.  Bowl Cut Jr. would like nothing more than to strike at our athletes, so - allegedly - UN Ambassador Nikki Haley had suggested that the United States might be opting out the 2018 games. As is often the case with these types of stories, a closer examination of Haley’s comments suggests that’s not necessarily what’s really happening.

Sen. Warren’s “Free” Act would stifle the health of the consumer credit industry

Sen. Warren’s Free Act
Following the widespread news coverage of the Equifax data breach, which entailed the theft of millions of Americans’ personal data, left-wing experts argued that consumers should freeze their credit. Senator Elizabeth Warren, realizing that this would be the perfect moment to capitalize on public outrage, proposed the “Free Act.” If passed, the bill would not only impose damaging regulations on the consumer credit industry, it would also compel affected firms to start providing a range of services, including credit freezes, at no cost to consumers. 

Rather than be tempted by the allure of Sen. Warren’s proposed legislation, people should realize that the most preferable outcome for average Americans would probably occur if the government simply left the consumer credit industry to its own devices, and that isn’t just a conjectural notion—it’s exactly what happened during Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Some of the most fruitful years that the American economy ever experienced took place during Reagan’s tenure because, among other things, Reagan was a relentless opponent of needless and cumbersome consumer credit regulations.

How to Get the Strzok Texts ASAP

How to Get the Strzok Texts ASAP
I recently had a “Eureka!” moment while mulling over the Strzok texts. I read that the DOJ feels that it might take weeks to read all 10,000 of the Strzok missives before handing them over to Congress, and I thought to myself, “Why not give them to the FBI?”

As you’ll recall, the FBI vetted the approximately 650,000 emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop in only eight days! They should be able to go through a mere 10,000 texts in a few hours, with time out for lunch. Problem solved—no need to thank me, it’s what I do.

President Trump Confirms Blooming of Fig Tree

President Trump Confirms Blooming of Fig Tree

“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem.  And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” (Zechariah 12: 2,3)

The verses from the Bible were written thousands of years ago.  The prophet Zechariah said that there would be a time, a time close to what Christians call the “End Times”, that Israel would be the center of world strife.

Israel was destroyed in 70 A.D., and the temple in Jerusalem was taken apart brick by brick.
