Rumors of Trump´s demise are,
once again, greatly exaggerated

Welcome to the Donald Trump status reality check for dummies, part 276. It seems like the established political and punditry world needs many frequent reminders about President Trump´s resilience every time he goes through a wounding incident like he is now with the beating he´s taking over his response to the violent protests in Charlottesville last weekend. So here are the several reasons why President Trump is simply down, but not out in any permanent sense. There are four key things to remember: (Note: None of the points below are excuses for President Trump. They simply explain why he´s not as vulnerable as

A grudging but accurate assessment.

The Atlanta Fed is predicting 4% growth this quarter. 4%!

The people criticizing Trump are the same ones who said 3% was impossible.

The people criticizing Trump are the same ones who said we couldn´t drill our way to lower gas prices.

The people criticizing Trump are the same ones who said . . . oh, I´ll stop now.

People always say that the economy is the number one issue but it really isn´t.Political beliefs are the real #1.Just take abortion for example. Single women voting issue.They couldn´t care less if a pro-life president could get 10% growth. On the other side to have single issue gun owners.If you back the NRA,chances are the other bill of rights mean a lot.

The dems are out of issues to run on that´s why they´ve taken up violence in the streets. They don´t believe it´s possible Trump got elected and he´s lost very few firm supporters despite the left´s and Rinos huge push to oust him.

The media has been crying wolf since day one against Trump. So the people are so used to the media´s katrina of the week they ignore it. After all he knocked off 17 of the most elite in the republican party without any help from his party, the media or the rich donors.

FTA: The U.S. is not a parliamentary democracy where individual leaders can be ousted with previously unscheduled votes of no confidence or by coalitions of once opposing parties that come together to form a new ruling majority.

Ignorant leftists (but I repeat myself) are always calling our form of government "a democracy" but it is not it is a "representative republic" with a Constitution and Bill of Rights that serve as a basis for our governing laws.

All--and I mean ALL--of the resisters, By Any Means Necessary, the fascist AntiF(irst)A(mendment), and other Seditionists whether in a group or as individuals--every one of them--want to be able to separate the Constitutionalists from any influence in this country.

If they could, they would consign the 63,000,000 of Trump voters into "re-education camps" to be beaten, enslaved, and forced to declaim communism/socialism/totalitarianism as the only viable form of managing a country as large as ours. They want us to ignore 150 years of history, from Marx to Hitler and Mussolini, to Stalin, to Mao, to Castro, to Chavez and Maduro...they want us to forget the hundreds of millions of deaths, the economic failures that inevitably end in starvation and death.

The individual, and his desires must be subjugated to the needs of the many.
Only centralized government can be trusted to determine what is needed and how to provide it.
Deny the individual, deny capitalism, deny proven history that liberty always prospers.
Anyone against this "wisdom" must be eliminated, either silenced or killed.

A Republican senator introduced legislation Tuesday to cut down on the amount of money ex-presidents siphon from taxpayers, looking to limit their pensions and office expenses. Sen. Joni Ernst, Iowa Republican, said that while presidents should keep getting taxpayer-funded security details, they don’t need the more than $1 million in pensions and office equipment that former Presidents Obama and George W. Bush are each expected to cost in 2018. (snip) The Washington Times reported last month that Mr. Obama is poised to become the most expensive ex-president during his first full year out of office, in 2018. Between his $236,000 pension,

Last week in Arizona, in an hour-long televised meltdown, President Donald Trump told supporters that he is willing to let the federal government shut down if funding for his beloved border wall is not included in Congress’s upcoming spending bill, which is due in September. “If we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” Trump said in Phoenix. “One way or the other, we’re going to get that wall.” Having failed to extract the necessary money from Mexico, and having soured on making U.S. consumers pay through import taxes, it seemed the president would be blackmailing Congress

At $700 million, Wednesday night’s Powerball prize is the second-largest lottery jackpot in its history, and the math is working out in favor of lotto commissions. Two years ago, your chances of becoming an instant millionaire were 1 in roughly 175 million. Now, the odds are 1 in roughly 292 million. Tweaks to the game in October 2015 increased the number of total balls, from 59 to 69, from which players need to pick five. It may seem like a modest change, but the odds of winning the jackpot shot up astronomically. So now it’s even harder to strike it rich with Powerball,

Just how badly are voters starving for true conservative change embodied through a man whose character they can proudly support? Well, according to the latest poll, Judge Roy Moore is leading a sitting senator (who has the support of the president) by 20 points headed into the Sept. 26 runoff. Last Tuesday, Roy Moore edged out Senator Luther Strange 39 percent to 33 percent in the GOP primary. However, landing the top spot in the first round doesn’t always guarantee a win in the runoff. That is why the latest poll from JMC Analytics is so earthshattering. The poll conducted several

In an interview with Breitbart News, Dr. Theresa Deisher, a world-renowned scientist in the field of adult stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine, discussed what is involved in harvesting the organs of aborted babies. “If you read scientific publications, in which they use the fetal material for some indications, particularly, cardio-vascular, or nerve cell research, they discuss the necessity of having tissue in the digesting buffer solution within five minutes for optimal yields,” she explains. “So, within five minutes of death, you would have to have the heart removed, and flushed of all blood, cleaned of any extra tissue that might

Guam´s leader said Monday that "sometimes a bully can only be stopped with a punch in the nose", in a spirited defence of President Donald Trump´s rhetoric against North Korea which has the island in its crosshairs. While Trump´s critics accuse him of inflaming tensions with Pyongyang, Guam governor Eddie Calvo said he was grateful the US leader was taking a strong stance against North Korean threats against his Pacific homeland. "Everyone who grew up in the schoolyard in elementary school, we understand a bully," Calvo told AFP. "(North Korean leader) Kim Jong-Un is a bully with some very strong

A man is charged with attempted murder and a raft of firearms offences after helping fend off home invaders, one of whom he’s now charged with shooting. Kyle Earl Munroe was arrested on July 12 after RCMP and Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of a home invasion involving firearms at a home in Porters Lake. Police said that three men entered the residence with guns and a struggle took place with two men inside. The two in the home seized a firearm from one of the suspects and several shots were fired as the suspects fled. Police later located one of

Vladimir Putin’s former media czar was murdered in Washington, DC, on the eve of a planned meeting with the US Justice Department, according to two FBI agents whose assertions cast new doubts on the US government’s official explanation of his death. Mikhail Lesin’s battered body was discovered in his Dupont Circle hotel room on the morning of Nov. 5, 2015, with blunt-force injuries to the head, neck, and torso. After an almost yearlong "comprehensive investigation," a federal prosecutor announced last October that Lesin died alone in his room due to a series of drunken falls “after days of excessive consumption of

Hillary Clinton told host Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air” Monday that she may challenge the results of the 2016 presidential election. “No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Hillary said in a response to a question asking if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.” Clinton stated that she believes the Russian government influenced the election in favor of Trump, and that this could make the outcome illegitimate. “[Trump knew] they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there… There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more

The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,

The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.

ST.

The confrontation took place late Saturday night in the Delmar Loop area of University City, a suburb about 10 miles (16 kilometers) west of St. Louis near Washington University.

People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen. The question is what your definition of amnesty is. It´s a

Hillary Clinton rejects the idea that a June 2016 meeting between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch critically damaged her White House bid. “I just don’t buy that,” Clinton said in a PBS interview aired Friday evening to promote her new book, “What Happened,” about her loss last year to Donald Trump. As Clinton has in several other, recent interviews promoting the book, she heaped much of the blame on then-FBI Director James Comey. Comey led the Justice Department investigation into Clinton’s use of private email servers as secretary of state, after Lynch stepped back
