Yeah and I just saw a couple of apple pies flying by - being chased by a Unicorn. There is nobody on the left with whom I wish to bond or understand. Real Americans are nice, polite, courageous people who will let these people "express themselves" until they get too annoying, then the hammer is going to fall and we will paint the streets with their blood.

As old as I am, I have never been more motivated in my life to do what I can to preserve what is left of this nation. These America hating Democratic Party cretins must be whipped back into the ignorance caves they came from!

I sense that the wheat is about to be separated from the chaff, and the uncommitted must finally take up arms for one side or the other. There will be no neutrality. Can you think of a single way this can be resolved? I cannot. Toothpaste - tube. Bell - unring, etc. Secession in my lifetime is a wonderful dream but given that it's the only sane way this will ever be resolved, it won't happen. There will be war first and it will be ugly because one side is ready to be vicious in battle while the other side is still asking, "Why do they hate us?" We on the Right are right. If that's exclusivist, too bad, it's true. So where do we find warriors, besides in the present White House?

One truth has become clear: It will not be resolved via the ballot box. It's going to be a bumpy ride. Wait until the left finds out that they don't have a monopoly on the violence option.

We passed the tipping point when are betters began to tell us that marriage was no longer just between a man and a woman, and when we have to accept that a man is a woman if he thinks he is. Common sense hasn’t had a seat at the table in quite some time.....that is killing us.

Yep barring an alien invasion or some kind of pandemic, only one way this ends. At some time a tipping point will be reached, and then it'll play out. I can only hope I'm not too old to help.

There is still time to split the country peacefully and short-circuit the violent Civil War being prepared by liberals. Separate the coastal urban Bolshevik enclaves, separate a 30-mile-wide strip along the Pacific Coast, except for San Diego. Free America gets 95% of US land area, all military installations. The commies get the national debt & the illegals.

Don’t forget President Trump won without abccbsnbccnnmsnbc , newspapers , magazines , google , Facebook , twitter, big $$$ donors , fake republicans....the fake media’s 99.9% anti Trump coverage made him & his family stronger. Plus government agencies working against him with wire taps , fisa warrants , $35 million $$ one sided investigation. Even when the truth comes out the media will support the Dems, twist the truth, make false statements. Nothing will change. Libs never change, you give them an inch they take a mile.

The landmark jury verdict awarding $11 million (with the possibility of triple damages to come) to members of the Gibson Family, owners of a 5-generation bakery boycotted and slandered by students with the encouragement of a College official, is looking to be as much about social class as it is about the excesses social justice warriors (SJWs).

President Trump announced a deal with Mexico to help stave the border security crisis, and leaders of both countries celebrated. After all, both countries said they were the winners in the newly signed migration deal. There were losers, of course - Mexico's infamous human smuggling cartels, and far left activists who shake down migrants, both of whom get curbed in the deal. But none made fools of themselves the way the biggest losers here, the Democrats (and their media allies) managed to do.

The insurer that covers Oberlin College for liability, Lexington Insurance Company, filed documents with court last month indicating that its umbrella liability policy would not cover costs of any judgment for the plaintiffs. That means that if, after the appeals process has run its course, the plaintiffs move to collect the $11 million a jury just awarded them (plus whatever punitive damages – up to $22 more – are awarded next week), Lexington likely won’t pay and Oberlin would have to sue for reimbursement. (snip) Oberlin has a mess on its hands and its trustees must begin planning for possible need to cough up millions of dollars.

As an Irishman, I’m embarrassed at the treatment of the President of the United States on his recent visit to Ireland.

Oberlin College, which has become one of the most politically correct campuses in the United States, has just discovered that allowing and encouraging social justice warriors to damage their perceived enemies can be very expensive. A local jury has just awarded Gibson’s Bakery, a five-generation institution in Oberlin, Ohio, $11 million in its lawsuit against the college for throwing its support behind a student-led boycott over false charges of racism. This amount could triple to $33 million dollars if punitive damages – intended to punish and disincentivize egregious behavior -- are awarded in proceedings Tuesday next week.

Now that he apparently has made a deal to speak with US investigators about his “dossier” (purchased with DNC and Hillary campaign monies) that was used to mislead a FISA Court into allowing domestic spying on US citizens, former British spy Christopher Steele is letting a buddy at the New York Times know that he is nervous about becoming a fall-guy.

There is nothing normal about undermining the rule of law,” she said, per the Associated Press. “There is nothing normal about attacking the press.

This summer, PBS Kids premiered an episode of the children's show Arthur in which a teacher, Mr. Ratburn, "marries" another male character. Even before this premiere, PBS was already infusing the LGBT agenda into its programming. In between its shows, a happy song about families included an image of two dads with a baby and lyrics to that effect. Disney and other children's stations long ago jumped onto the LGBT bandwagon with their line-up. As a Guardian headline noted in 2016, "From Nickelodeon to Disney: Children's TV leads the way for LGBT characters," with same-sex unions featuring prominently in shows. It is not just television,

The deal to avert tariffs that President Trump announced with great fanfare on Friday night consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months, according to officials from both countries who are familiar with the negotiations. Friday’s joint declaration says Mexico agreed to the “deployment of its National Guard throughout Mexico, giving priority to its southern border.” But the Mexican government had already pledged to do that in March during secret talks in Miami between Kirstjen Nielsen, then the secretary of homeland security, and Olga Sanchez, the Mexican secretary of the interior, the officials said.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton believes President Trump's administration is a gateway to fascism. "The idea that it can't happen here is just old-fashioned, my friends,” the former secretary of state warned this weekend during an address at Wellesley College. Her remarks came with a specific reference to former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's new book, Fascism: A Warning. How seriously should we take any “warning” written by a former secretary of state who mocked 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney when he cautioned about the growing Russian threat? I am going to say not much.

Stacey Abrams’s refusal to lose the Georgia gubernatorial election graciously was one of the low points of the 2018 midterms. But her insistence that Brian Kemp and the Republicans stole the election from her has now become an article of faith among Democrats. Democratic presidential contenders who traveled to Atlanta this week to speak to the African-American Leadership Council repeated the claim, which Abrams has made more than a dozen times since she lost to Kemp by 54,723 votes last November. In rote fashion, they repeated Abrams’s charges that the outcome was determined by “voter suppression” conducted by Kemp, who

Lake Erie and Lake Superior — two of the five that make up the Great Lakes — broke records for water levels this May. Lakes Michigan and Huron could follow suit. Naturally, climate change is getting the blame. “We are undoubtedly observing the effects of a warming climate in the Great Lakes,” says Richard Rood, a University of Michigan climate scientist. But just a few years ago, climate scientists were insisting that a warming climate would cause water levels to decline. In 2008, Science Daily reported on a study that attributed the decline in Great Lakes water levels to global warming.

Occasionally, when the time is right and fewer people are watching, Fox News tosses a few Donald Trump critics into the mix. They generally receive airtime in the middle of the day—where the more moderate hosts Shep Smith and Bret Baier hold court—before the party line is reestablished by the Trump liege men of primetime (Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity). And then there is Judge Andrew Napolitano, the Libertarian Party voter and legal commentator, who seems to be disappearing from Fox News altogether as he’s grown more and more critical of the Trump administration and its treatment of the Mueller report. Fox News hasn’t dispatched with Napolitano altogether, of course

Well, now it looks like we have a gay flag controversy, something Democrats are sure to make a 2020 campaign issue and the press reporting the whole thing is being done to be mean.According to the Washington Examiner: The State Department has rejected at least four requests from different U.S. embassies to fly LGBTQ pride flags during the month of June. U.S. embassies in Israel, Germany, Brazil, and Latvia have each made requests to fly rainbow flags on the embassy’s flag pole, and the Trump administration has rejected each request, according to NBC News. Pride flags are still allowed to be displayed elsewhere in each facility.

Sacramento, Calif. — California will become the first state in the country to pay for some adults living in the country illegally to have full health benefits as the solidly liberal state continues to distance itself from President Trump’s administration. Democrats in the state Legislature reached an agreement Sunday afternoon as part of a broader plan to spend $213 billion of state and federal tax money over the next year. The agreement means low-income adults between the ages of 19 and 25 living in California illegally would be eligible for California’s Medicaid program, the joint state and federal health insurance program
