Trump Derangement Syndrome is in full swing still over the faux Russian influence of the election. The only logical way Russia could have had any impact would be if they had in fact stolen all the emails from the DNC and Podesta and then gave them to Wikileaks to release. This of course would be a moot point if those emails didn’t show wrong doings, but that doesn’t seem to matter to the Democrats. But first, let’s look at those emails. Podesta’s email’s were stolen via a phishing scam. DNC’s emails were hacked, but the server that was hacked was never investigated by the FBI, the DNC wouldn’t allow it. After the release of the CIA documents by Wikileaks recently, any fingerprints left behind couldn’t stand up in traffic court, much less a real trial. The Liberal’s showed their true colors as displayed by their recent frothing of the mouth over STOLEN tax documents. Blatant hypocrisy equals lack of legitimacy.
Once again we find ourselves in a debate on health insurance coverage. My position is simple. The Federal government has no business interfering in these matters. But the Democrats think differently and we have Obamacare, which is failing miserably to live up to the promises espoused by the Liberal media and the Democrats. Basically, if the government touched it, it’s failure was inevitable. It will be interesting to watch this fiasco unfold. Let the debate continue.
After yesterday’s Wikileaks dump about CIA spying technology, which vindicated conspiracy theorist’s in a big way, watch how the Deep State minions come out and try to spin it and try and make it as if it nothing important. While this document dump is still being reviewed, what we do know is that the CIA can infect smart phones and smart tv’s to turn them into microphones. They have tested infiltrating cars computers and take over the control’s. One person is claimed to have been killed because his car was hacked. This is still an ongoing review and there will be more coming out in the future. This is also Part 1 of the dump, there is more to come yet. This should pose an important question, how was all of this funded? Let the discussions continue! 🙂
The Liberal media and the DC Swamp Donkey’s are basically waging war against the Trump Presidency. Since the meltdown of November 9th, we can expect these things to continue to get worse as time goes on. So far, the Chicken Little screams of the “Sky is falling” have been discredited at every turn. The Democrats have nothing. No message, no morals, no ethics and no sense. They no longer control the message. The far left and the DC Swamp Donkey’s are doing a great dis-service to the average Liberal Democrat. Shameful!
It has become quite entertaining watching President Trump’s continued attacks on the biased Liberal media. It looks as though the days ahead will be filled with a back and forth that should provide some great moments. We have a Free Press, but they are not immune to ridicule, despite their whining. They will claim that ridiculing them undermines the 1st Amendment, without realizing that it’s also the 1st Amendment that supports such ridicule. That seems to be lost to many journalists and media pundits. My answer to them….TOUGH! Let the discussions continue 🙂
Friday, President Trump will sign another Executive Order on immigration. Some are calling this “mass deportation”. Let the discussions begin!
It wasn’t long ago that the Democrats and their lapdog media tried to blame Clinton’s stunning defeat in the election on what was termed as “Fake News”. This finger pointing quickly began to haunt them, as a majority of the news media slant left and are politically Liberal in nature, with the MSM dominated by the Liberal Left. Since the election, the media has been the subject of discussion often here, as this article is the fifth on the subject. The Liberal media, along with their current war with President Trump, continue to put out reports that misrepresent the facts and cause lot’s of undue fear and anger.
In this case, an AP article on a leaked paper floating around the DHS was put out, with this message:
The Trump administration is considering a proposal to mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up unauthorized immigrants, including millions living nowhere near the Mexico border, according to a draft memo obtained by The Associated Press.
This was later revealed to be “Fake News” as the document in question never said any such thing. The number 100,000 was never used. What it did say was far less nefarious and more inline with what would be acceptable actions by the government:
To maximize participation by state and local jurisdictions in the enforcement of
federal immigration law, I am directing the Director of ICE to engage with all willing and qualified law enforcement jurisdictions for the purpose of entering into agreements under section 287 g) of the INA.
Quite the difference between what the document says and what the AP wrote. Shameful!
It’s on, as the saying goes. Organized protesters, paid agitators, violent Black Bloc Anarchist’s and the obviously poorly informed are taking to the streets, Town Hall meetings and literally shouting down those who are trying to fix the mess the Democrats have made over the last 8 years. For those who voted against the Liberal and Establishment ideology, it’s time to step up and take this crap personally. This is a call to action! BRING BACK THE TEA PARTY!
With all the political theater about confirming Betsy DaVos as Secretary of Education (an agency I think should be terminated), lets discuss what should be done to fix an ailing education system. Here’s some food for thought:
Under the current U.S. education system, the quality of students’ schooling is largely determined by their parents’ income. This is because wealthy parents can afford to send their children to private schools and live in neighborhoods with the best public schools. Such options narrow as income declines, and the children of poor families—who are often racial minorities living in predominately Democrat run neighborhoods and cities—typically end up in the nation’s worst schools.

It’s Super Bowl weekend and it’s time for predictions for those who care. In addition, let the debates continue.
One of the things that engaging with everyone here is that I have learned alot about the media and how they tend to handle things. When NBC altered a 911 call made by George Zimmerman in an attempt to make him out to be a racist, it changed how I see and feel about the media, especially the Left leaning media. When the entire media went batshit crazy over the Zimmerman issue, only to later find out the whole thing was based on a LIE, we should have all learned that the media will act in a knee jerk manner on issues without getting all the facts. This seems to be true today concerning the medias handling of the immigration issue. The good thing is that WE tend to get the facts straight at some point in time! With that said, let’s continue!
With all the discussion about Obamacare, I think it’s safe to say that the law will be gutted, repealed and replaced. I say gutted because I think that small parts will be removed, like the mandate and possibly requiring people to buy coverage for stuff they will never need or use. For example, requiring a single male to buy insurance for prenatal care is utterly stupid, at least for people that understand how to spend their own money. The problem with this law is that that choice was taken away, as liberal bureaucrats think that they know far better how you should spend your income than you do. However, let’s focus on what should go and what should stay. I’ll throw out some real facts about Obamacare and why it needs to go completely in the comments section.
It’s only week one and the Liberal Left are in so many tizzy’s they may not be able to keep up with Trump’s current pace of making Obama’s Presidency non-existent. Some significant issues already completed include two oil pipelines approved, which has enviro-nuts going crazy and planning lawsuits, planning on the building of the great wall at the southern border, expect more lawsuits on this, and removing the US from the Trans Pacific Partnership, to name a few. Today Trump is expected to sign an Executive Order banning people from 7 Muslim majority countries from entering the US until a better vetting system is in place.
An issue worthy of discussion is his recent Tweet about Chicago. We all know Chicago is a mess and in some places comparable to a war zone. With murders and violent crime at all time highs, Trump is threatening to send in the Fed’s if Chicago can’t fix the problem, which they can’t, and won’t. Let’s begin a discussion on what is the best way to fix the crime problems in Chicago, but also other areas where crime is rampant.
When I got into writing this article, it became so cumbersome and long that it would not be appropriate for this venue…..far too lengthy and confusing….so, I went onto several sites, both right and left, to see what the main arguments were and I have reduced it down to four bullet points each. However, with everyone’s permission, I think it appropriate to tackle the four MAIN issues one at a time for debate purposes and to keep individual responses focused. So here goes.
Sometime back, or, back yonder a ways, Buck and I had some discussions on the electoral college process. I had actually come down on the side of “perhaps we need a change but I am against the popular vote”. Since then, I have thought about it a lot (too much actually) and have changed my position to the electoral college is still the best way to go. Consequently, I went through over 50 different sites and basically “boiled ‘er down” to the following four bullet points.

With an upcoming article from D13 concerning the Electoral College, I decided to throw up an Open Mic to continue the discussions.
It don’t take a genius to see the Radical left for what they really are, Communist’s. It’s as if they are following the Communist Manifesto word for word as we get closer to Inauguration Day. Numerous so called “organizations” are planning all kinds of civil unrest in an attempt to stop the swearing in of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President. Groups like DisruptJ20 are calling for numerous events to take place. Project Veritas has released some undercover audio of what may be expected during the festivities this coming week. Stink bomb attacks, blocking access to numerous events, physical attacks.
Of course, the Conspiracy Theory world is going crazy with all the possibilities, up to and including the use of a suitcase nuke. I don’t expect much coverage of these things by the Radical Liberal media, coverage will happen online at numerous sites, which I will post as they come available. It should be an eventful week. With the Communist politicians exposing their true selves by disparaging Trump and planning to miss the Inauguration and join the protesters, the cat is out of the bag. The enemy is exposed. Now how do we deal with them?
It isn’t hard to see what’s coming down the pike when it comes to President Trump. The radical liberal media will do anything they can to disparage him and the Republicans and will likely go to any means necessary. I have already posted about the Communist organizations and their plans for the upcoming week leading up to Inauguration Day. Yesterday’s CNN reporter meltdown on National television is just the beginning. Left Wing rags like the Huffington Post, Media Matters and others are in full meltdown mode. Let’s do our part to help them get their message into the Funeral Home and toward burial.
The Democrats repeatedly tried to object to Electoral College results on the House floor despite KNOWING that the objections must be signed by a HoR member and a Senator. Their childish theater is just another example of the mindset of Liberal’s who simply cannot accept the fact that their policies are a failure and have been rejected and rejected soundly.
What is truly sad about this, it occurred exactly the same in 2001 when the votes were being counted for Bush. Similar to yesterday, no Democrat Senator would sign the objections. What a sad group of people.
With the New congress being sworn in and Trump taking the oath is a couple weeks, optimism in the US, for most, seems to be high. This is especially true on the economic front, as seen by the decent gains in the stock market and companies deciding to stay or return to the US to conduct their business. All is good in Trumplandia and those who choose to live in Dumbfuckistan are still playing the same identity politics that got them beat miserably in the last election. The Dumbfuckistanians will soon become the ignored and irrelevant, as a vast majority are ready to move on from that nonsense. None of this changes the fact that politicians are still politicians and aren’t that much different, regardless of the color of the shirt.
Case in point, Obamacare. When this all began, the Republicans were opposed to government interference in the health insurance industry and healthcare in general. Back then, we were lied too, period. Today, the phrase is to repeal and replace. Well, WTF happened to just repeal? Get their noses out of the business, as Republican’s claimed was their position before Obamacare. Answer….it was never their position and once government got their claws involved, it was NEVER going to let go. There is nothing being reported on how many people are not currently covered with health insurance, which is a sure sign that they are not telling the truth, one way or another. If the facts ever came out, the Republicans would be called out on the replace part. This is just one example of the many that are coming of Misplaced Optimism.
An open thread for the holiday weekend.
What should President Trump and the new Republican Congress fix in the first 100 days of the Trump Presidency? Here’s a partial list of suggestions to ponder and discuss:
Repeal laws and regulations that prohibit health insurance policies from being sold across state lines and that mandate certain coverages in all policies, thus allowing a free market to develop in the health insurance industry.
Remove legal and tax barriers/incentives that prohibit or discourage doctors and patients from engaging in trade for services, thus allowing a free market to develop in the healthcare industry.
Audit the Federal Reserve and begin the process of repealing the Federal Reserve Act and the 16th Amendment.
Repeal the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
Eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency and the Departments of Education, Energy, Housing and Urban Development, Commerce, Interior and Homeland Security, which will immediately cut more than $1 trillion from the federal budget.
Repeal the federal minimum wage law.
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone has a safe and healthy holiday weekend. Below is a way that you can help those in need, so please watch the video and do your part 😀
The cold weather and it’s companion, snow and ice, have arrived and plan on staying around for awhile. With temperature sitting at 2 degrees as I write this and a Winter Storm Warning for tonight and tomorrow at my location, we have finally gotten back to normal weather around here. With Summer being warm and dry and Fall being mild and dry, I won’t complain about snow or rain, we need it. Stay safe and warm Folks!
Please continue your daily schedule and open conversations 😀
There have been many discussions about the 1941 sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Many folks claim that FDR knew it was coming and kept it quiet in order to sell the United States entrance into the war, which prior to the attack, the majority of US citizens were against. Let the discussion move forward with a simple note: I personally believe that the attack was allowed and kept quiet. I have many reasons to believe this as well. Let’s chat! 😀
A new thread to continue any discussions or to let loose and rant about anything.
With all the talk about “fake news” going around, I thought I’d touch on the subject a bit. First, there is real “fake news” that’s sole purpose is to get clicks to make more advertising revenue. Those sites are out there and their headlines are easy to distinguish, mainly because they are beyond the limits of belief. But they are not the problem that the Liberal’s are making them out to be. The current talk of “fake news” is a “red herring” of epic proportions and it’s aimed at conservative websites. Here is a partial list of so called “fake news” sites:
While some of these sites mat actually be for “fake news stories”, I see several that have stories that are regularly more accurate than the MSM and far more truthful than most politicians with a “D” after their name (as well as most with an R). I have regularly linked several of the above sites to provide some discussion subjects and provide some food for thought in general. We have seen Breitbart numerous times, Liberty Unyielding and Intellihub, to name a few. One site missing….MediaMatters, The National Memo, both Left Wing rags. Make no mistake folks, the “fake news” subject is about shutting down conservative news sites, not about “fake news”.
It didn’t take but one simple sentence on NBC World News at 6:30 pm on the local NBC affiliate to figure out how the Liberal media is going to go forward after the election, there going to double down and lie even more. The theme was that the Trump transition team was in “Turmoil” because apparently several changes where made. Then the story is told, with plenty of unsubstantiated sensationalism, to try and uphold the claim of turmoil. It was all bullshit and lies from the Liberal Left and it was repeated over and over, like puppets on strings, throughout the country. Nothing new here, but it’s another swamp that needs drained……so simply turn the channel and get the word out to your friends. The enemy is NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, NYT, Google, Facebook, Twitter and maybe even FOX, just to name the main culprits.
