Why liberal elites are so
resentful of middle America

New York Post, by Salena Zito

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/12/2017 1:13:18 AM

This week we saw a few perfect examples of why liberal coastal elites are so resentful of middle America: It’s because the supposed rubes and rednecks aren’t more resentful of the elites — or, more specifically, the elites’ “success.” They don’t aspire to be like their self-appointed betters. Some Americans just don’t need much; they don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to have a 1,500-square-foot house, watch football and go to church on Sunday. They don’t want to leave their hometowns to come to Silicon Valley or Washington, DC, or Manhattan. They place great value on community and living

Did you know that liberal elites never go to the bathroom? It´s too mundane and common a thing to do.

That´s why they are so full of it.

What the elites know for sure to be right is wrong and this is a big problem for them.

By the way, middle Americans are not less ambitious. Please expunge this thought and do not make this reference again.

If they really looked, liberal elites would find that Middle America is genuine, smart and has thought through many of life´s challenges. Middle America gets bombarded with how the liberal elites live, and see the sadness, the fake joy, the drugs, and violence in them. Liberal elites are jealous of the calmness and love in Middle America. Liberal elites, their views, movies have been rejected by Middle America. It had to happen.

This is a good article but the answer could be summed up in a tweet. So called elites hate Middle America because we´re happy, without them.

No one seemed to have noticed that Meryl Streep (born New Jersey), in effect, said that the U.S. has no home-grown "artistic" talent.

She said that if all the foreigners left Hollywood, the only entertainment media left in the country would be NFL and mixed martial arts.

So where would that leave Miss New Jersey? Would she be doing half-time shows or kicking people in the face?

It´s all about priorities and the liberal elites can´t stand the idea that other people don´t have their priorities.

AltaD nailed it.

We don´t care, and it drives them crazy.

The Bay Area elites are a special breed of stupid. They pay $3,000 a month for a tiny apartment, drink a $15 cup of coffee with their $4 toast, buy $20 socks at REI and $6 a lb apple´s at Whole Foods, and they think we´re the stupid ones?

Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz team
up to defund UN over Israel vote
Washington Examiner, by Kyle Feldscher    Original Article

The United States taxpayer must stop paying into the United Nations until it reverses its vote condemning Israel´s occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, two top senators said Thursday. Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, appeared together on MSNBC about a new bill introduced Thursday that would block taxpayer dollars from going toward the U.N. Graham said the resolution passed last month, which the United States abstained from, was a step too far in attacking Israel and it must be undone. "Twenty-two percent of the money to fund the U.N. comes from the American taxpayer. I don´t

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani announced on "Fox and Friends" Thursday that he will be heading up a new cyber security committee for President-elect Donald Trump. The committee is set to meet with Trump on a regular basis to bring together leaders of the private sector to share their thoughts on the best cyber security methods. "It´s his belief, which I share, that a lot of the solutions are out there. We´re just not sharing them. ... My belief is, as always, that the answer to cyber security is gonna be found in the private sector," Giuliani said.

Cabinet hearings’ only ‘surprise’
is Democrats’ grandstanding

Confirmation hearings for President-elect Trump’s Cabinet picks are now under way and — despite some Democratic posturing — the nominees are acquitting themselves well. The most blatant pandering came from New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who essentially launched his 2020 presidential campaign with a broadside against Attorney General-designate Jeff Sessions. It was the first time a senator has ever testified against a sitting colleague at a confirmation hearing, but Booker sanctimoniously claimed he had to defer to his “conscience and country.” (As if Republicans don’t care about either.) Then again, the Cory Booker who accused Sessions of “hostility” to civil

(Video) Wednesday on CNN’s “AC 360,” veteran journalist Carl Bernstein discussed the relationship between President-elect Donald Trump and his transition team, and the press. Bernstein weighed in on the latest chapter in this relationship involving an unsubstantiated dossier being reported by BuzzFeed and CNN and suggested it was reporting “the best obtainable version of the truth.” However, he also mentioned Trump aide Kellyanne Conway, who was a guest on the show earlier and described her to be a “propaganda minister” because she has acted as an anonymous source in her dealings with the press. “Let’s talk about what reporting is,”

It is fitting that presidents give farewell messages. But given the venue and setting President Obama had chosen, it was fairly easy to surmise that this would be a final political rally and national lecture. I will simply recount the one lasting legacy of Barack Obama that will always be emblazoned in my memory. When I think of him, I will think of this. When I reflect on his promised era of hope and change, I will be drawn to this image. Despite your personal feelings on his coolness, his character, his charisma, or his competence, Barack Obama will forever

Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself. The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow. They were drawn up by a former western counter-intelligence official, now working as a private consultant. BuzzFeed on Tuesday published the documents, which it said were “unverified and potentially unverifiable”.

While we learned earlier that John McCain was responsible for handing over the 35-page "dossier" of compromising, if arguably fake, revelations about Trump´s connections to Russia over to the FBI, the identity of the actual creator, who was said to be an ex-British intelligence service, remained a mystery. No longer. Courtesy of the WSJ, we now know his name: the former MI-6 officer, now working for a private security-and-investigations firm "who produced the dossier of unverified allegations about President-elect Donald Trump’s activities and connections in Russia" is Christopher Steele, a director of London-based Orbis Business Intelligence.... and before readers google

Sworn Donald Trump enemy John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect. The Arizona senator issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published. ´Late last year, I received sensitive information that has since been made public,´ he said. ´Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the Director of the FBI. ´That has been the extent of

President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution “just a piece of parchment." “Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift,” said Obama. “But it’s really just a piece of parchment.” “It has no power on its own,” he went on. “We the people give it power. We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge…” He later said that as he steps down from the presidency, he plans to play an active role in "the most important office in a democracy: citizen."

Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly also being considered for the position. Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was in

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Wednesday criticized President-elect Donald Trump for his shouting match with a CNN reporter. (Snip) "President-elect Trump today told CNN´s Jim Acosta the his organization amounts to fake news. CNN´s exclusive reporting on the Russian matter was separate and distinctly different from the document dump executed by an online news property," Smith said during his closing monologue. "Though we at Fox News cannot confirm CNN´s report, it is our observation that it´s correspondents followed journalistic standards and that neither they nor any other journalists should be subjected to belittling and delegitimizing by the president-elect of the
