Reuters: Millennial support for the Democratic Party dropped 9% in less than two years

Reuters: Millennial support for the Democratic Party dropped 9% in less than two years
Maybe Democrats haven’t been screaming “racism” loudly enough. Perhaps they haven’t pandered to just the right subsets of the country they’re trying to divide. It could be that all the free stuff they’ve been promising isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be. Whatever the reason, you can bet the following poll has caused someone in the murky bowels of DNC headquarters to hit a big red panic button.

According to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll, millennials – the very group of people who are supposed to ensure a golden age of Democrat victories – are losing interest in their allegedly chose party.

Trump’s International Art of the Deal

Understanding Trump’s America First foreign policy
It’s really not that complicated.

But President Trump’s Syria strikes have reopened the debate over what defines his foreign policy. Is he an interventionist or an isolationist? Foreign policy experts claim that he’s making it up as he goes along.

But they’re not paying attention.

How We, As A Family, Finally Conquered Liberal Network TV!

Tom Selleck -- Copyright: Dave MerrickIn many of my articles I have mentioned that I don’t watch tv, and haven’t since 1987. Some people have written me and have accused me of doing a self-righteous act in mentioning that. Some have scolded me for inflicting my children with a ‘goody two-shoes, forced piety’. Still others actually accuse me of lying, saying that ‘everybody watches tv’. Well I don’t. And let me qualify that my wife and I do enjoy watching DVDs of all sorts of movies occasionally. And we like some YouTube and some stuff on Netflix as well. We just don’t do network stuff.

[Author’s Note: My favorite show on Netflix is “BlueBloods”. I highly recommend that show. It is a STRONG show centered on a STRONG family with STRONG family values. All the actors on that excellent program are perfect for the characters they play, and are themselves excellent actors. Nevertheless, one of my all-time favorite entertainment personalities is the program’s star, Tom Selleck. In further fact, I am a professional portrait artist, and years ago I did a big portrait for Tom. It was a graphite piece, larger-than-life size, of the character that Tom played in what was at the time his favorite movie, “Quigley Down Under”. Often, while my wife and I are enjoying the program, I will pause it, look over at her and say, “Did I ever tell you about the time I did a portrait for Mr. Selleck? And have I told you how much he enjoyed that?” And her awestruck answer, after she rolls her eyes, is usually something like, “I don’t remember, Mr. Humility. Will you please shut up and let me watch this?”]

Teacher Pushes LGBT on Students

Teacher Pushes LGBT on Students
TAVARES, FL —A 14-year-old male eighth grader at Tavares Middle School in Lake County, Florida brought home a printed note last Friday, given to him by his teacher, encouraging him to participate in the “Day of Silence.” GLSEN, which stands for the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, designated Friday, April 27 as “a student-led national event where folks take a vow of silence to highlight the silencing and erasure of LGBTQ people at school.”

Netanyahu outlines evidence of Iran’s cheating on nuclear deal

Netanyahu outlines evidence of Iran’s cheating on nuclear deal
If you’re surprised that Iran lied, hid the truth and cheated on the nuclear deal it negotiated with Barack Obama and John Kerry in 2015, I think someone needs to explain to you that fundamentally evil people are not to be trusted.

And maybe you reflexively disbelieve Benjamin Netanyahu because you share much of the world’s reflexive hatred of Israel.

Netanyahu to release ‘dramatic’ intel showing Iran violating the nuclear nuclear ‘deal’

Netanyahu to release 'dramatic' intel showing Iran violating the nuclear nuclear 'deal'
If you’re still foolish enough to believe that Iran is honoring – or ever had any intention of honoring – the “nuclear deal,” well ….we pity you.  Even if you ignore the Mullahs’ decades of terrorist sponsorship, hostage-taking, and lies, you have to know that they violated the agreement almost as soon as they signed it.  So, it takes a special kind of head-in-the-sand person to think their word is still their bond.

The buzz now suggests that today, at 1:00 PM ET, we’re going to see the final nail in that line of thought.  That’s when Benjamin Netanyahu is set to give a speech in which, we’re told, he will unveil intel proving that the Iranians have been ignoring the “deal” all along. I’m sure we’ll have more on this later, since (if true) it dooms the current version of Obama and Kerry’s Iranian folly.

Smugglers Using Illegals As Diversion for Sneaking in Higher-Value Contraband

Smugglers Using Illegals As Diversion for Sneaking in Higher-Value ContrabandSmugglers are charging illegal aliens to get them into the U.S. safely, then setting them up to be captured in order to create border gaps the smugglers can exploit, the president of the U.S. border agents’ union tells CNSNews.com.

First, the smugglers are running ads in South American countries promising that, for a fee, they’ll help illegals break into the U.S. undetected, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd explains.—More…

Gifford-Jones; Do I Look Like an Addict?

Gifford-Jones; Do I Look Like an Addict?
“But why must I give you a urine sample?” I asked the receptionist at the marijuana clinic. She replied, “Because we won’t see you without one, and each time you come back you must give us one. It’s to make sure you’re not taking illegal drugs.”

So at 94 years of age, a doctor with lots of gray hair, tired after fighting Toronto traffic, and walking with a cane, I asked her, “Do I really look like an addict?” I reluctantly gave her a urine sample! But why was I there?

Israel and United States Military Assistance to Egypt

Israel should encourage the US to retain its policy of orienting the military assistance to counterterrorism and border security challenges
In January 2018, with little fanfare, the United States and Egypt signed a bilateral communications security agreement known as the Communications Interoperability and Security Memorandum of Agreement (CISMOA), which protects and regulates the use of sensitive American avionics and communications systems. Until now, Cairo refused to sign CISMOA, objecting to the invasive access it accords the US to Egypt’s facilities and communications systems.

The lack of an agreement affected the level of the telecommunications and navigation devices on the US-made platforms and armaments sold to Egypt, limiting them to low standard commercial-grade systems. Consequently, the precision guided munitions (PGMs) sold by the US to Egypt were limited to the laser-guided kind, and only recently, with the purchase of the Rafale fighter jets from France, Egypt acquired European-made GPS-guided PGMs, such as the AASM Hammer bomb. The signing of CISMOA now allows, for the first time, the acquisition by Egypt of US-made high precision GPS-based air-to-ground weapon systems and components, as well as advanced air-to-air missiles.

Diamond & Silk Righteously Rain Fire & Brimstone on Congress

Diamond & Silk Righteously Rain Fire & Brimstone on Congress
Every single thinking American owes Diamond & Silk an enormous debt of gratitude for providing their testimony before the House Judiciary Committee last Thursday. Internet sensations Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, known respectively by their Internet personas as “Diamond & Silk,” provided clear, concise and indisputable testimony, under oath, that substantiates widespread claims that the social network platforms Facebook and YouTube are actively engaged in censoring anyone who is promoting President Donald Trump and his “Make America Great Again” agenda.

In a hearing titled “Filtering Practices of Social Media Platforms,” Diamond & Silk testified about their experience with the social media monopoly Facebook as being labeled “unsafe to the community” to deliberately obtuse congressional members such as Shelia Jackson-Lee (D-TX) and Hank Johnson (D-GA).

Renewables Generated 103 Percent of Portugal’s Electricity Consumption in March

Renewables Generated 103 Percent of Portugal’s Electricity Consumption in March
Portugal’s renewable electricity production (mostly from hydropower and wind energy) exceeded monthly consumption in March. The average renewable generation for the month exceeded 103.6 percent of consumption. According to the nation’s transmission system operator, renewable energy production reached 4,812 gigawatt hours, surpassing Portugal’s total electricity needs for March, which totalled 4,647 gigawatt hours. But that does not mean that Portugal’s electric system can rely solely on renewable energy. At least, some say, not until 2040—over 20 years from now—will that be able to happen in a cost effective way.

You’re Welcome, Madam Macron

Brigitte Macron and Melania Trump

When Brigette Macron returned home after a Washington, D.C. trip that included a State Dinner, she showed no gratitude no grace, no diplomacy and no class.

Like the giddy teen who told every detail what really went down at her best friend’s pyjama party, Madam Macron told the world that first lady Melania Trump is “constrained in the White House where she “cannot even open a window”.

Observations on “Democrat” Self Destruction

Observations on Democrat Self Destruction
American citizens got more entertainment than a “reality” television show during the 2016 election campaign, but real life drama has not stopped since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. Yet, primary impetus behind the never​-​ending political drama of the Never Trump overachievers are “Democratic” Party bosses and leaders who refuse to accept defeat. That can be a good quality in some cases, but when reaction to defeat turns into a frenetic form of public self-destruction it is time to take notice.

Refusing to accept loss on some levels is admirable, but when loss of a legitimate election turns to rejection of the results, and then into a ridiculous foray into a public charade fueling investigations of fabricated allegations, it begins to look like much more than a case of “sore-loserism.” Now, for those paying attention, it is becoming increasingly apparent that at the heart of the Russian hacking or “influence” in the 2016 elections, is the fabrications paid for by the “Democratic” National Committee.

War: Trump goes off on lying Democrat Sen. Jon Tester for slandering Dr. Ronny Jackson

War: Trump goes off on lying Democrat Sen. Jon Tester for slandering Dr. Ronny Jackson
There are times when Donald Trump’s refusal to operate according to the established rules of Washington is so desperately needed, it reminds you of why some of us overlooked so many of his flaws and decided it was worth the risk to elect him. (In addition to his opponent being Hillary, of course.)

Trump’s nomination of Dr. Ronny Jackson to be Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs was questionable because Jackson arguably didn’t have the right background for it, but none of that justified the complete, slanderous character assassination perpetrated against Dr. Jackson by Democrat Sen. Jon Tester of Montana.

Trump unscrambles UN-EU-PLO misinformation omelette
President Trump has started unscrambling the misinformation omelette first cooked up by the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) Charter in 1964 and dished out by the United Nations (UN) and European Union (EU) since 1974.

Trump’s intention was revealed when the State Department released its annual “Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2017” (“Report”) - renaming its segment previously entitled “Israel and The Occupied Territories” with a new descriptor – “Israel, Golan Heights, West Bank, and Gaza”.
