The Missing Democratic Agenda

Oh, to have been a fly on the wall in Elizabeth Warren´s house as people went crazy over the prospect of Oprah 2020. I can only imagine Warren´s reaction. Did she yell at the TV? Mutter under her breath? Immediately call her media consultant in panic? We know the slight got to her. By midweek she was making the rounds on cable. There she was, with Mark Warner of Virginia, reminding us of her existence, talking about God knows what, and smiling uncomfortably when asked, inevitably, what she thought of the Lady O. Watching Warren and Warner, I had a vision of

"that one begins to wonder whether they actually want to settle the issue"

Of course they don´t. ANY issue in front of the sycophant media right now is what the dems want. They have no traction on anything but are using the spaghetti thrown against the wall model to see what sticks.

Right now, all the dems have is theater. Trump´s successes on the economy, taxes, foreign actions/military, Conservative agenda items, and a lot of other things that DO matter to voters are drawing all the air out of the room.

Dems are recycling things that were tried and failed under BO. WHY would voters believe a dem party that locked us in economic stagnation after Trump turned things completely around in a year? ISIS bedeviled BO but a year after Trump started they have been almost exterminated.

The simple, clear, and true message is dems failed, Trump/Republicans succeed. That message is only likely to become stronger and more clear as the year unfolds.

The Democrats defining a class of illegal aliens with their invented term “Dreamers” is like putting perfume on a skunk.

NATO’s Challenge Is Germany, Not America
National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/19/2018 11:36:33 AM     Post Reply
During the recent NATO summit meeting, a rumbustious Donald Trump tore off a thin scab of niceties to reveal a deep and old NATO wound — one that has predated Trump by nearly 30 years and goes back to the end of the Cold War. In an era when the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact are now ancient history, everyone praises NATO as “indispensable” and “essential” to Western solidarity and European security. But few feel any need to explain how and why that could still be so. Does NATO still protect the West? Does it prevent destructive European feuding? Does it

Trump wouldn´t give the media a
show in Russia, so they´re mad
Washington Examiner, by Eddie Scarry    Original Article

You can acknowledge that President Trump gave an embarrassingly weak performance at the press conference following his face-to-face meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, while rejecting the media’s weird preoccupation that Trump didn’t publicly insult Putin to his face. In 2018, every day goes down as a bad day if Trump didn’t use it to condemn Russia for interfering with the 2016 election. If you didn’t watch the conference live on Monday and instead only saw the media’s coverage of it, you’re forgiven for maybe falling under the impression that Trump disowned the U.S. intelligence community and pledged allegiance to Putin.

A Tale of Two Killings

Last Sunday, a 59-year-old woman on the West Side of Chicago was killed by a would-be carjacker. The felon walked up to the driver’s side of the car, which was being driven by a 71-year-old man, and pulled his gun. The senior citizen refused to surrender the vehicle and kept driving. The would-be carjacker opened fire at the car, striking the woman in the head and killing her. The night before, on the South Side, a Chicago officer killed a 37-year-old man whom the officer’s patrol partners had observed behaving in a manner suggesting that he was carrying a gun.

Senate GOP breaks record on
confirming Trump picks for key court
The Hill [DC], by Jordain Carney    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 7/19/2018 4:53:08 AM     Post Reply
Senate Republicans broke a record on Wednesday for the number of appeals court judges confirmed during a president´s first two years. Senators voted 50-49 on Andrew Oldham´s nomination to be a judge on the 5th Circuit, making him Trump´s 23rd circuit court judge confirmed since he took office last year. That breaks the previous record set by President George H.W. Bush, who got 22 appeals court judges confirmed during his administration´s first two years. "The Senate continues to confirm impressive nominees whom President Trump has asked to serve our country," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said on Wednesday. "[Oldham] comes highly recommended

Why Comey and Company Want
Democrats to Take Back the House

Is anyone surprised that disgraced former FBI director James Comey has joined the ranks of other never-Trumpers like Max Boot, George Will and Steve Schmidt in urging Republicans to vote Democrat in the midterm elections? (Snip for tweet)These erstwhile Republicans are hoping their clarion call will cause a stampede of "reluctant Trumpers" to give Democrats the majority in Congress in order to maintain "the nation´s honor," as George Will put it. In Comey´s case, he also has a vested interest in seeing the oversight committees switch from red to blue. The GOP-controlled House Oversight, Judiciary and Intelligence committees are still investigating

Trump Approved Press Conference of Russian
Indictments to Strengthen Hand Against Putin
Daily Caller, by Julia Cohen    Original Article

President Donald Trump chose to have the indictments of 12 Russian hackers announced before his Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a Tuesday Bloomberg report. Trump wanted the indictments announced ahead of the Monday summit to give him leverage over Putin, a source familiar with the matter told Bloomberg on Tuesday. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave Trump the option of having the indictments released before or after Helsinki, according to the report. Rosenstein cited national security concerns to allow him to share details of grand jury proceedings with Trump. Rosenstein announced Friday that a grand jury had indicted 12

Obama LOVES Telling the Truth... Honest!

If I had to come up with one word to describe Barack Obama, that word would would be "honest." As anybody who was alive and awake for the past decade can tell you, Obama has never, ever lied about anything. And as they can also tell you, accusing him of lying is racist. That´s why all the smart, cool people make a big show of believing everything Obama says and never questioning his devotion to the truth. That´s also why Obama can get away with saying amazing $#!+ like the following in public:

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney tore into President Trump on Monday after Trump challenged the intelligence community´s assessment that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, calling Trump´s behavior "disgraceful and detrimental to our democratic principles." Romney´s comments came hours after Trump held a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in which he questioned whether Russia was behind efforts to meddle in the 2016 election. "President Trump´s decision to side with Putin over American intelligence agencies is disgraceful and detrimental to our

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Three-year-old twins Zyler and Kadyn Sharpe scurried around the boys and girls clothing racks of a narrow consignment store filled with toys. Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights. At a glance, the only discernible difference between these fraternal twins is their hair — Zyler’s is brown and Kadyn’s is blond. Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn? That’s a question their parents, Nate and Julia Sharpe, say only the twins can decide. The Cambridge, Mass., couple

The Trump-Helsinki summit brought new accusations in Congress Thursday, as GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona accused the president of providing ´aid and comfort´ to the enemy. Flake´s choice of words evoked the Constitution´s definition of treason – at a time when President Trump is facing a new level of scrutiny for his refusal to forcefully condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin for election meddling during their summit meeting Monday in Finland. ´By choosing to reject objective reality in Helsinki, the president let down the free world by giving aid and comfort to an enemy of democracy.

President Trump has now been in office a year and a quarter. President Trump’s results when compared to those of President Obama at the same time are stunning. In every economic measurement, President Trump far out-performs President Obama. The mainstream media and Democrat Party continue to smear President Trump with the fake Russia collusion narrative. In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic. President Trump’s economy is just plain on fire! Barack Obama was the worst economic president since

Former FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday said “history has its eyes on us” and encouraged Americans to vote for Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections. Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, issued a tweet urging Americans to snub Republicans this November. “This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the Founders’ design that ‘Ambition must … counteract ambition,’” tweeted the former FBI director, a longtime supporter of Republicans. “All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall. History has its eyes on us.” James Comey ? @Comey This Republican Congress has proven incapable of fulfilling the

A White House stenographer says she resigned over the Trump administration´s lack of respect for her office after President Trump reduced the roles of the White House position. Beck Dorey-Stein, who worked as a stenographer for the White House during the second half of the Obama administration, told CNN´s New Day on Wednesday that Trump´s refusal to allow stenographers in the room for meetings and interviews with some journalists crossed a line. "I quit because I couldn´t be proud of where I worked anymore," Dorey-Stein said. "I felt like President Trump was lying to the American people, and also ... not even
