Trump the deviant

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 6/12/2019 12:07:15 PM

President Trump is a deviant, of that there is no argument. On that, Democrats, NeverTrumpers and Trump supporters all can agree – and by “deviant”, I simply mean that he varies from the accepted norms. Now whether you see this as a good thing or a bad thing is a matter worthy of discussion, but one thing is true, Trump represents a significant departure from presidential culture of the past 50 years. Trump’s deviancy threatens the left because it shows people there is another, more direct way to get things done than the mutated and metastasized puffery practiced by the powdered wig disciples of a process of indirect diplomacy

It is a great thing! PDT was elected because WTP were exhausted and aggravated by the constant "mutated and metastasized puffery practiced by the powdered wig disciples". Every campaign season they lied to WTP about what they intended to do and once elected, retreated back to their corners of indecision and inaction. Add to it the direct obstruction of PDT's agenda by the Uniparty and many of the obstructionists chose not to run again for election fearing embarrassing defeats in the primaries, ie. Paul Ryan. PDT is a breath of fresh air for WTP because he says what he means and follows through to the best of his ability. MAGA 2020!

At this time , I'm still an avowed Trump supporter, but after allowing 15% ethanol gas to be sold year around, it looks like he's becoming political. I like him because he seems to care about the American people, yet it looks like he sold out to the ethanol producers. America is energy rich, and doesn't need to ruin their high priced automobiles with ethanol enhanced fuel. Sell the ethanol, and all that corn, to 3rd world countries and/or use it for feedstock, which will lower the price of meat products. It can't be used in small engines, and it doesn't save people money. It casts more to produce a gallon of ethanol laced gas than it does non-ethanol laced gas, and you get worse mileage to boot. Just who's the winner here?

Dem Marsha Fudge shouts at GOP rep

Blinded by righteous indignation and hatred of President Donald Trump, Democrats treat rules and protocol as mere inconveniences when it comes to attacking Trump. All of which made for an interesting exchange on the House floor Tuesday when a Republican member clashed with a colleague from across the aisle. In an apparent effort to skirt the rules, Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, read an alleged constituent letter that described the president as a “mobster, a con man, a gangster” and said he was “sexually condescending to women.” After Fudge read the entire letter, the presiding officer on the House floor, Rep. Marc Veasey, D-Texas,

Former CIA Director John Brennan was trotted out Tuesday night by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews to help shore up former Joe Biden new campaign narrative that President Donald Trump is an existential threat to the country. In the process, he suggested that the president may be “turning a blind eye” to Russian interference in our electoral system because it may help with his reelection efforts. In making such an outlandish remark, Brennan went so far as to charge that Trump may stand in the way of the intelligence community’s efforts to respond to Moscow’s meddling.

Rep. Jim Jordan unloaded on Democrats during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing Wednesday, asking what they were so afraid of in asking a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. The top Republican on the House Oversight Committee called out his Democrat colleagues for wanting to push through a hearing before the Supreme Court rules on the issue. “Why don’t they want to know? That’s the fundamental question: why don’t the Democrats want to know how many citizens are in the country?” the Ohio Republican asked.

The practice of opposing a party rebuttal to the president's State of the Union speech was started in 1966, when Republicans Senator Everett Dirksen and Rep. Gerald Ford responded to Democrat President Lyndon Johnson's State of the Union on television. Since then, it has become an annual event. Until 2019, all previous responses were delivered by contemporary senators, representatives, or governors. Since 2011, there have been two responses — one in English and one in Spanish. And here I was, under the illusion that English is our national language. So how did Stacey Abrams, an ungracious loser with no national elective office,

There are a lot of strange-birds in politics, but no one has ever seen anything quite like the positions being warbled by the 2020 gaggle of presidential candidates, a group of strange-birds being labeled “The 2020 Gang” by some observers. We have entered a political era when people with no substantive credentials and few life successes believe they are qualified to be the leader of the free world and to govern your life. This era started last decade when a little-known man became president, whose primary real-life achievement had been to run a rag-tag street pack in Chicago.

 CNN biased and hypocritical? Never that! Despite being maligned day in and day out by pesky conservatives over its alleged bias, anybody with common sense and reason knows that CNN is a wholly “fair and balanced” network … Just kidding! CNN is arguably a heavily partisan network whose contributors, anchors and pundits have no qualms about openly displaying their pro-Democrat, anti-Republican bias. Take for instance the glaringly biased chyron that appeared on CNN early Tuesday morning after 2020 contender former Vice President Joe Biden released a transcript of what he intended to say during an event in Iowa later that afternoon:

If the election were held today, President Donald J. Trump would be re-elected. The economy is going strong, unemployment is at record levels, dipping below four percent, and paychecks are bigger. Consumer and small business confidence have reached their highest levels in decades. This, plus the power of incumbency and Democrats not really having a solid candidate, means Trump nabs a second term. Even Democratic strategist have to admit this (via The Hill):

A new letter from the Justice Department addressed to Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) reveals John Durham’s investigation into Spygate is much larger than previously known. AG Barr’s review of the FISA abuses and surveillance against Trump’s campaign is “broad in scope and multifaceted,” according to the DOJ letter. The letter to Nadler, penned by Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, indicates Fusion GPS, foreign intelligence services and non-governmental organizations and individuals are all a target of US Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the origins of Spygate.

Famed Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz says House Democrats at this point are gasping for air in the never-ending Russia saga. “They’re looking to create something that isn’t there,” he told me in a brief phone interview Monday morning. “They’re trying to weaponize the criminal justice system for partisan advantage. It’s not there. There’s no obstruction of justice in the [special counsel] report.” Democrats on Monday will hear testimony related to their absurd case against President Trump for supposedly obstructing justice. Democrats have called in former President Richard Nixon's lawyer John Dean to offer testimony that would bolster their case for Trump’s impeachment.

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.

The jury just rendered its verdict on punitive damages in the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case. Daniel McGraw, our reporter in the courtroom, reports that in addition to the $11.2 million compensatory damages awarded last Friday, the jury awarded a total of $22 million. That brings the total damages to $33 million. We will have the breakdown soon. The jury also awarded attorney’s fees, to be determined by the judge. In closing argument, Gibson’s lawyer Lee Plakas argued: “Why is the country watching you.

Asked by ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in the Oval Office on Wednesday whether his campaign would accept such information from foreigners -- such as China or Russia -- or hand it over the FBI, Trump said, "I think maybe you do both." "I think you might want to listen, there isn't anything wrong with listening," Trump continued. "If somebody called from a country,

But it won’t be a traditional cloth flag. Instead, the normally gray, concrete steps at Roosevelt Island’s Four Freedoms Park will be painted to resemble the iconic rainbow symbol for the gay rights movement. The fitting hashtag: #AscendWithPride. The location of the massive 12-foot-by-100-foot display of equality is no coincidence either.

Soccer is the world’s game, but women’s soccer is not.

Hence, mismatches like the U.S.-Thailand farce. There just aren’t enough competent women’s teams in some continents to make up a strong world cup field.

So far the media has managed to avert its eyes and studiously ignore a major story of corruption and malfeasance in Congress because to cover said story would totally destroy a narrative and expose them to allegations that they are racist. At the epicenter of this tale is the pustulent and rather dim Elijah Cummings from my current state of residence. Cummings is your typical product of the Maryland Democrat machine. The reek of corruption is always near him but never quite attaches to him because he is, as I said, the product of the Maryland Democrat machine and therefore bulletproof. Now all of that may be getting ready to change.
