Kill The Alligators, Then Drain The Swamp
Frontpage Magazine, by Bruce Thornton

Original Article

Posted By:steveW, 8/2/2017 2:31:02 AM

Donald Trump campaigned on the promise to “drain the swamp” ––the D.C. establishment made up of most Congressmen from both parties, employees of executive agencies and bureaus, the political appointees who head up those agencies, and the hordes of lobbyists, fundraisers, Congressional staffers, “consultants,” “journalists,” and pundits. These are the “Beltway insiders” or the “political establishment” whose natural habitat is the swamp. These are the alligators Trump needs to get rid of. Of course, many of these D.C. denizens of the establishment are permanent dwellers in the swamp, beyond the reach of the president or even Congress. Besides, monitoring Congressmen should

Comments:
The Army of Deplorables will wholeheartedly support any action President Trump takes to rid DC of swamp creatures, of either party or media outlet.

One measure of success for the Trump Administration would be a real estate recession in some of the wealthiest counties in the country - those surrounding Washington, D.C. Once America´s wealth was concentrated in areas where people made things. Now it is concentrated where people make rules.

The Slow Death Of The Republican Party
Breitbart Big Government, by Brent Bozell    Original Article
Posted By: steveW- 8/27/2017 11:57:55     Post Reply
The Grand Old Party is about to commit suicide. All this talk about Trump this, and Trump that, masks a far bigger political controversy. The Republican Party leadership in Washington, D.C., has fundamentally betrayed its constituents and they are about to learn that they’ve been double-crossed — for years. Every Republican candidate’s stock speech sounds the same, the thunderous roar about a government out of control, federal spending out of control (insert charts and graphs and why, if you stack hundred dollar bills, they will reach the edge of the universe), federal taxes out of control (insert comparisons to socialist countries),

Arpaio Pardoned, RINOs melt down

What on earth has happened to the moral and political sensibilities of Paul Ryan, John McCain, Jeff Flake, Jeb Bush, etc.? All of those RINOs who are attacking President Trump for pardoning Joe Arpaio are simpering, whining traitors to the party they allegedly represent. They should declare themselves Democrats and be done with the masquerade. Perhaps they should remind themselves of all the criminals and thugs that President Obama pardoned, or that President Clinton pardoned. Trump made it clear at his rally in Phoenix that he was going to pardon the beleaguered sheriff. The audience there was thrilled, as were the

"Russia, Russia, Russia" isn´t working and may actually turn against the Democrats. What is next in their playbook? The usual racism page, although this time, it is for all of the marbles. With nothing to run on besides "Trump is evil," and with the Awan scandal ahead, they have no choice. Twenty-eighteen will be a bloodbath for them in a regular election, so they have to suppress turnout, if not eliminate it. More and more, Charlottesville looks like a setup. Jason Kessler, who organized the "Unite the Right" event, seems to have a history with the left. Aside from his Occupy

Statue Of Lincoln Defaced In Chicago

The people who are tearing down statues of Confederates in the South are barbarians, not notably different from the Taliban fanatics who blow up Buddhas and other historical monuments. Many have noted that if the barbarians want to erase Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis today, it is only a matter of time before they come for George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. We can add Abraham Lincoln to that list. Last night, a bust of Lincoln in Chicago was vandalized, apparently as a political act: Abraham Lincoln has joined George Washington on the list of those targeted by Chicagoans in

In Their Own Words: The Radical Political

In the days since violent clashes at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville culminated in a neo-Nazi sympathizer driving his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, journalists have mainstreamed the self-described “anti-fascists” (or “antifa”) at the rally — largely ignoring their involvement in the escalating political violence in this country. Many establishment political figures insisted the far-left actors were just like American soldiers on D-Day. But these “anti-fascists´” own statements show they’re nothing like American soldiers on D-Day. They aren’t interested in protecting America’s system of government, according to their own statements — they’re interested in destroying it. From the very start of

Now some self-styled Nazis are fighting some self-styled Commies on American soil, and our veterans have been drafted without their knowledge or consent. The Greatest Generation are now Communists, whether they like it or not. Ladies and gentlemen: Our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in the media will congratulate themselves now.

Arrest him. His paper’s latest contribution to wrecking this country is an editorial titled "Charlottesville showed that liberalism can´t defeat white supremacy. Only direct action can." It concludes with, “Start throwing rocks." "Resistance, be it forceful or clandestine, threatened or explicit, stands as our ´rock.´ Rocks can look like armed self-defense or nonviolent direct-action campaigns," N.D. B.

Violent Antifa Protesters Try to Shut Down
Pro-Trump ´Patriot Prayer´ Rally in Seattle

Hundreds of pro-Trump demonstrators and anti-Trump counter-protesters converged at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle on Sunday, resulting in several arrests and the confiscation of weapons. The rally, organized by the conservative group Patriot Prayer, came one day after violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left three people dead and dozens injured. Counter-protesters -- including antifa, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), Veterans for Peace, Indivisible Seattle, Black Lives Matter, and the Freedom Socialist Party -- marched "in solidarity against hate," specifically against what they called “the bigotry, racism and violence" of the "far-right" organizers. Solidarity Against Hate counter-protesters waved communist flags,

President Trump is still facing a torrent of criticism for his responses to the Charlottesville violence. After calling out the hatred and violence from “many sides” on Saturday, Trump finally did what the media demanded and condemned white nationalists and other hate groups by name. Yet, that wasn’t good enough for the chattering class, and the new denunciation is not winning the president any goodwill. While it’s certainly true the president could have articulated a better message over the weekend, his administration is taking a very hard line on the Charlottesville violence. The Department of Justice is launching a civil

Don´t tell anybody, but I´m actually beginning to love Trump. Not physically, natch, but as our funniest and most truthful president since Calvin Coolidge. Normal Americans have watched our politics turn to mud for a quarter century, since Bill Clinton, the Arkansas corruptocrat. We´ve watched it and watched it while the media turned into a copycat Soviet propaganda ministry, and now, finally, somebody is acting like an adult and talking without having to explain every single word. We know the State Department has been Foggy Bottom for decades, a place where Harvard grads go to rusticate -- effectively, to die as real

In Dallas, a black nationalist activist shot and killed 5 police officers at a Black Lives Matter anti-police rally. Instead of condemning BLM, Barack Obama defended a racist hate group whose role model is Assata Shakur, a wanted black nationalist cop killer, at the funerals of the murdered officers. The left killed civil rights and replaced it with black nationalism. The racial supremacism of black nationalism that killed those officers is everywhere. Ta-Nehisi Coates and Ibram X. Kendi are lionized as brilliant thinkers instead of hateful racists, Amazon has ordered a black nationalist secessionist fantasy from Aaron McGruder and Showtime aired

Oh, Melania.

This morning, Mrs. Trump boarded Air Force One wearing a pair of towering pointy-toed snakeskin heels better suited to a shopping afternoon on Madison Avenue or a girls’ luncheon at La Grenouille.

Kenneth Storey says he made a “heartbreaking” mistake in describing the destruction from Hurricane Harvey as “instant karma” for Texans who voted Republican last year. Storey, since fired from his post as a visiting assistant professor at the University of Tampa, said his ill-fated post to Twitter on Sunday was intended as a critique of the GOP’s resistance to funding climate-change research — but that the message was “extremely poorly worded.” The Winter Park resident’s tweet quickly ignited online outrage, amid reports of the catastrophic destruction in Houston. “It’s heartbreaking to me to know that these people are struggling … and I did

That includes fellow quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who´s still waiting for a job offer less than two weeks before the start of the 2017 season.

A Greek Life retreat at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) was promptly cancelled this weekend after a banana peel was found hanging in a tree. “To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset by what occurred at IMPACT,” Interim Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Alexa Lee Arndt remarked in an email between Greek leaders, according to The Daily Mississippian. “Because of the underlying reality many students of color endure on a daily basis, the conversation manifested into a larger conversation about race relations today at the University of Mississippi.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan condemned violent leftist Antifa protesters Wednesday a day after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi condemned the group. “Speaker Ryan believes, as is obvious, these individuals are left-wing thugs, and those who are committing violence need to be arrested and prosecuted. Antifa is a scourge on our country,” Ryan’s spokeswoman AshLee Strong said in a statement provided exclusively to The Daily Caller. Speaker Ryan has been criticized by many conservatives for what was viewed as a weak response to the violent activists. President Donald Trump blamed “many sides” for the violence surrounding a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.,

There is a raging controversy within the University of Mississippi’s Greek Life community regarding race relations and bananas. A Greek Life leader accidentally sparked mass hysteria after he placed a banana peel on a tree in the woods -- because he could not find a trash can. The Daily Mississippian reports that three black students found the banana peel -- and were apparently triggered by what they saw. "To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset," the interim director of fraternity and sorority life wrote in a letter obtained by the newspaper.

Houston congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said federal lawmakers should begin working on a Hurricane Harvey aid package worth about $150 billion, more than double the amount Hurricane Sandy needed five years ago. Jackson Lee told CNN today that the funding to recover from the massive flooding is needed "because this not only includes the Houston Harris County area, which is 6 million in its metroplex, but all of our areas, such as Beaumont, that was hit last night, Victoria and Corpus and places in south Texas."

WASHINGTON – Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe on Monday touted progress on lowering the state’s juvenile incarceration rate, which has dropped from about 600 to 200 under his watch. The Democratic governor is responsible for closing Virginia’s two maximum-security juvenile prisons, arguing that the antiquated facilities are part of system that works against the state’s African-American youth rather than for them. African-Americans make up about 25 percent of Virginia’s school population but account for more than 50 percent of school disciplinary actions, including suspensions and expulsions, which the governor regarded as “totally unacceptable.” “It is time for a criminal justice revolution,” McAuliffe said

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka recently stepped down from the White House American Manufacturing Council, citing President Trump’s response to Charlottesville. And now he’s sounding off on “racists” in the White House. Trumka said there were “two factions” in the White House he observed: the Wall Streeters and the people who had policies on trade he could have supported. Unfortunately, as he added, there was one tiny problem: “They turned out to be racist.” This is what Trumka had to say, in full, about those “two factions” in the White House at the Christian Science Monitor breakfast this morning: “You
