CNN interviews panel of 3rd graders about Trump presidency. ...Yes really

There’s a question that Democrats love to ask whenever they don’t control the White House.  Kids are, as we’ve been told a thousand times, our most precious national resource. It takes a village to raise them. So, whenever they’re faced with the horrors of a Republican President, Dems want to know: What are the children thinking?

Oh, woe. Woe to the children!  They’re being forced to live through the Trump presidency! The guy has only been in office a few months, and already the scars are piling up. One wonders how they can even sleep at night, knowing that the monsters have moved out from under their beds and into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  One day, we will no doubt be faced with a generation of barely-coherent alcoholics who waste away on the corner bar stool muttering “...damnmit. ...It was those damn Trump/Pence years. They did this to me.”

Best Buds Mueller and Comey Target Trump

The Washington Post, a mouthpiece for Obama holdovers in the CIA and other agencies, reports that “sources” say a current White House official is under investigation as “a significant person of interest” in Russia-gate, but that the sources “would not further identify the official.”

This is a case of anonymous officials talking about an anonymous official.

Interestingly, the term “person of interest” was used by the FBI against scientist Steven Hatfill in the post-9/11anthrax letters case. He was totally innocent and the Department of Justice paid him $5.8 million in damages.

Stop making heroes out of people who undermine their boss, regardless of what you think of him

I had a boss once that I gradually lost respect for. (I hope said boss doesn’t read this and recognize himself, but it was many years ago I’m sure he’s done fine without me.)

There’s no point going into all the reasons. But I got to the point during three years of working for this person that I did not believe the organization he led could ever succeed because his inadequacies as a leader would not permit that to happen. (In fairness to him, once I became the CEO of my own organization, I proved to myself and everyone around me that I had plenty of my own flaws.)

Anyway, it’s a gut-wrenching situation to be in because the boss sets the direction, and you can only do so much to get outside that direction because he’s the one paying your salary. If you become convicted in the belief that you simply can’t work for the man because you can’t follow his lead and you’re always going to be operating at cross-purposes with him, then the only move you can make with integrity is to leave.

Federal judge nixes Clock Boy religious discrimination lawsuit

The child exploited by CAIR and President Barack Hussein Obama to create the false impression that America is a seething hotbed of Muslim-hatred had his nonsensical religious discrimination lawsuit tossed by a federal judge in Dallas.

I am referring to Ahmed Mohamed, the teenaged poster boy for “Islamophobia” whom the Council on American-Islamic Relations relentlessly pimped as a victim. In fact, Mohamed is a bomb hoaxer called Clock Boy by some.

The young Sudanese-American made headlines when he was suspended Sept. 14, 2015, from MacArthur High School in Irving, Texas, for bringing a disassembled clock that resembled a bomb to class. He was also arrested and processed by police, leading his father and others to complain he was treated with inappropriate roughness.

Republicans Go to Jail, Democrats Run Free

How odd: During the eight years of one of America’s shadiest presidencies, not one Obama administration official went to prison. Or was convicted of a crime. Or even indicted. Sure, Rep. Darryl Issa (R-CA) and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held plenty of hearings. But while they called countless press conferences, not one Democrat ever was held accountable for the numerous crimes exposed by this and other Republican-controlled congressional panels.

Let’s stroll down memory lane and see how the Democrats acted when they investigated real or fabricated Republican scandals.

When the Watergate “Plumbers” (so called because their clandestine job was to plug news leaks) broke into the Democratic National Committee to snatch campaign documents and bug the party’s headquarters, hellfire erupted. There was no evidence that President Richard Milhous Nixon knew about the June 1972 break-in in advance nor did he authorize it. Regardless, he was forced to resign for covering up the crime, after he learned about it.

Google’s left-wing bias steers users to vicious articles trashing the late Roger Ailes

Left-wingers seem to hate the late Roger Ailes, who died May 18 at 77, more than they hate any other conservatives or Republicans.

This hatred manifests itself in Google’s search results which are dramatically skewed in favor of articles attacking the extremely influential founder of Fox News, Ian Miles Cheong of Heat Street discovered. (See screen grab of search results above.)

Search “Roger Ailes” at Google and “you’ll find that the top results consist almost entirely of articles from several liberal publications savaging his reputation as a person” and that the entries “are strikingly cruel and meanspirited.”

Among the top search results is a piece by the vile small-c communist Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone calling Ailes “one of the worst Americans ever.” From his cocktail conservative perch at the New York Times, the loathsome Never Trumper Bret Stephens labels him “the man who wrecked conservatism.”

Google is by far the most used search engine in the world.

Think about that.

Deplorables Versus Effete Snobs

In the late 1960s, Vice President Spiro Agnew used the phrase “effete snobs” to characterize establishment elites who considered themselves so superior that others should kowtow to their demands and opinions. Agnew was roundly criticized for this unfavorable description of the self-anointed powers inside the Beltway. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton was not criticized when she sarcastically dismissed Trump supporters, those residents of America’s heartland, as a “basket of deplorables.” Today, many of us believe “effete snobs” is an apt description of Washington insiders, and we also believe that those insiders concur with Mrs. Clinton’s put down of heartland Americans.

President Trump’s Visit to the Middle East

President Trump’s visit to the Middle East coincides with a bitter political crisis underway in Washington revolving around alleged contacts between close Trump associates and Russia during the election campaign. Accusations are under investigation by the FBI and committees in both houses of Congress; the US Justice Department has appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the matter; and voices are heard, including among Republican lawmakers, regarding the possibility of impeachment proceedings against the President. These developments have forced the President, only four months into his tenure, into a defensive position that has already left its mark on his conduct in the US domestic arena and that has the potential to influence his foreign policy as well.


The meetings scheduled for Trump in Riyadh, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and the Vatican, like his participation in meetings of NATO and the G-7 in Sicily later in the month, will provide the President with something of an opportunity to divert domestic attention from the events underway in the American domestic arena. They also offer an opportunity to generate an alternative and more positive discourse focusing on the rapid and auspicious change that, as he sees it, his administration has succeeding in effecting in the Middle East and, as a result, in the status of the United States in the international arena.

Trump politicized Mother’s Day

It seems our society has long passed the point where politics can be kept in its separate sphere. Everything from schools, to sports, to movies and television, to science to even Miss USA Pageants have become politicized. Still, it was unfortunate to see President Trump do the same with Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day should be just that—a celebration of how vital mothers are to our lives. Using it to promote public policy cheapens it.

Alas, last Sunday Trump released a statement that said, in part, that he was “committed to working with Congress to help mothers—and fathers—have paid family leave so that childcare is accessible and affordable.”

Lots of conservative and libertarian commentators would have had their hackles up if, say, Senator Fauxcahontas, had said, “On this Mother’s Day, let’s redouble our efforts to provide affordable child care for single moms.” Yet Trump largely got a pass.

Tax money shouldn’t shore up blatantly biased TV and radio

WASHINGTON, D.C.—A government $20 trillion in debt has just extended—not eliminated, as promised—funding for a public broadcaster that regularly infuriates and offends half the country.

The recently enacted Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017 not only gave the Corporation for Public Broadcasting its regular $495 million sweetsop, Congress threw in another $50 million to upgrade its “interconnection system.”

Yet again, it was a two-year “advance appropriation” for the CPB—a special arrangement designed “to provide a firewall of independence” from the government accountability that usually goes hand- in-hand with government funding.

The Derangement of John McCain

As the sharks of both parties and their partisan US media circle the boat with teeth bared “This Time We Got Him!”, obstruction of justice and impeachment fantasies, Judas, er, I meant John McCain, joined Donald Trump’s vile enemies by referring to Watergate.

HARVARD STUDY reveals US Media , hugely biased, blindly partisan, bordering on the irrational, and enraged at their loss, is up to 93% Biased Against Donald Trump  (See Charts Below)

Watergate was a break-in to Democrat Headquarter by self-motivated people not authorized to do so by Richard M. Nixon.

It’s starting to sound like Comey was paranoid about Trump from the moment he was inaugurated

Maybe there’s a reason Donald Trump thought Jim Comey was a “nut job.”

Initial reports about the Comey memo - the one that as of yet no one has actually seen - made it sound like Comey made the extraordinary decision to document a highly irregular conversation with the president.

But the more we learn about Comey in general, and about his attitude toward President Trump specifically, the more it sounds like Comey was rather paranoid about his relationship with Trump - both the perception of it and the reality.

Beltway crowd wants us focused on molehills instead of the mountainous problems they’ve created

This country has very big problems, and none of them – at least not the serious ones – were created by Donald Trump.

Take your pick. The debt, the unfunded entitlement obligations, the messed up health care system, the crime, the cultural disintegration, the tax code . . . the political class gave us these problems over the course of many decades. Whether by neglect or active foolishness, they have imperiled our fiscal stability, our economic vibrancy and even the safety of ordinary people. They’ve also made it harder for us to protect ourselves against external threats.

These problems are mountains. Mountains can be conquered, but it takes someone who is not only willing to climb the mountain but has the strength and the courage to see the challenge through when it gets difficult. Whatever Donald Trump’s faults, he ran for president because he understood the nature of these problems, and he was willing to climb the mountains.

Stand Strong Dear Trump Americans

An extremely disheartened American emailed me documenting all the factions committed to removing Trump from office. She concluded, “I don’t see how President Trump is going to overcome this onslaught of negativity which is waging upon him by those who are casting aspersions upon him for destroying the legacy of our nation’s so-called “first black president” and the detestable woman, “Crooked Hillary” who wanted to continue his failed policies! I pray for his protection and perseverance!”

I encouraged our patriot sister to keep the faith. Remarkably, Trump does not appear to be deterred by his enemies in both parties. Though under-reported, Trump continues to dismantle Obama’s horrific legacy.  I believe Trump draws strength from the support of We the People.

When Moses grew tired, Aaron and Hur held his hands up, one on each side, to encourage the people. As long as we continue to hold Trump’s hands up, he will perform God’s purpose. Our continuous prayers and support are the keys, strengthening our God given emancipator.

Tweet to President Trump: We the People Have Your Back

Members of the media have derisively compared President Trump to President Nixon.—Chris Pandolfo “Media hit the gas on the ‘Trump is Nixon’ theory

The globalist media’s (AKA mainstream media) comparison of President Trump to Nixon is marginally less absurd and offensive than their previous leitmotif of comparing Trump to Hitler, but the media still has a long way to go before they touch back down on terra firma.  I for one am not holding my breath awaiting the media’s return to sanity, as they seem hell bent on staying stuck on stupid in perpetuity.

James Simpson: I am fed up!

Trump leaked classified information! He tweeted something stupid! He is offending our allies and encouraging our enemies! He is a threat to national security and must resign now! Such are the fanatical ravings coming from the Lords of the Press, the Democrat Party, and a rogues’ gallery of brain-dead Republicans.

I am absolutely sick to death of it!

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), that stalwart example of political grace, politesse, and comity, leveled his stern opinion: “In a week full of revelation after revelation — on a day when we thought things couldn’t get any worse, they have,” he said on the Senate floor. “I say to all of my colleagues in the Senate: History is watching.”

The Dem Savior With “Kennedyish” Features

The Democrats are in trouble. And the list of party saviors is as broad as it is laughable. There’s Bernie Sanders, who denies that he’s a Democrat, Elizabeth Warren, who might not even survive reelection in her own state, Keith Ellison, an Islamist who keeps lying about his past with Farrakhan, Howard Dean, currently denying the existence of the First Amendment, and Maxine Waters.

You know you’re in trouble when your party is being represented on cable news by Maxine Waters. Desperate lefties had tried to tout the 78-year-old Waters as a hero to millennials. Maxine tried to help out by claiming, “I was a millennial once”.

When trying to appeal to millennials, it’s a good idea to use speakers who know what millennials are.

PRESIDENT MUST DECLARE WAR ON MEDIA, THE TRUE ENEMY

The media smells blood in the Potomac River. They sense the President they hate could be removed from office. Never mind that he won a landslide, winning electoral votes in 31 states. The media hate the President’s agenda and they hate that he defied their wishes and expectations by winning last November.

What has happened since his election is the equivalent of an attempted media coup d’état. According to the Media Research Center (MRC), 89% of the coverage of President Trump by the network news programs of CBS, NBC and ABC has been negative. According to the MRC’s Rich Noyes, “the elite liberal media do not think that Donald Trump is worthy of being president. They don’t like his policies. They don’t like his character.”

Boots on the Ground in Montana

Hi Folks. Lloyd here, checking in from Montana with Conservative Campaign Committee working to defeat extreme liberal Rob Quist for congress.

Mary has fallen in love with the Prairie dogs running around everywhere with their cute babies following them. I told her to forget about it. We are not taking Prairie dogs home on the plane to add to our 8 birds, two cats and greyhound.

Democrats have spent millions flooding the airways with ads lying about the Republican candidate Greg Gianforte. These people are despicable. Meanwhile, their candidate, Quist is nothing more than another Pelosi hand puppet to help fake news media’s impeach Trump scheme.

First Democrat Casualty in the Swamp Wars

The firing of James Comey was more representative of the first real Democrat Deep State casualty of the “Swamp Wars” than any other. However, despite top Democrats calling for Comey’s head at the beginning of May, the puppet masters in the Party took the position that the former FBI Director could still be useful with the now famous “Comey memo.” It is like using Comey as a dead fish to create an unbearable stench within America - a putrid stench aimed at manufacturing doubt and suspicion about the Trump presidency - yet again.

Now, the current “Democratic” Party mantra that seems to have the most traction is the “collusion” between the dastardly Russians and Donald Trump, or members of his election staff, or transition staff, or presidential staff (any propaganda that would work). Putin and the Russians are the current bad guys of the month. And ironically, James Comey may have been on the list in the past, but now he is considered useful still with his memo, which says little, and generates more unanswered questions, but fans the fumes of the stench. And though the Deep State Obama/Clinton tool was surgically removed from his post, and represents the first casualty the Democrat Party suffered in the Swamp Wars, he proved useful still.
