Street Smarts in the White House

Original Article

Posted By: Chris Jr., 7/11/2019 3:56:16 PM

President Trump went to an Ivy League school, but he came out still talking like a New Yorker, with his street smarts intact. What does it mean to have street smarts? It’s knowledge of how to spot trouble coming, how to cope with mean bastards, and thrive. It is knowledge gained from gritty life [Snip] Your knowledge is based in your life experience, not conventional wisdom or academic notions, so it is actually real. [Snip] Think President Trump. [Snip] Like a martial arts master, Trump doesn’t absorb his enemies’ attacks. He transforms their assaults into his own energy to win.

This is a brilliant essay celebrating the greatest patriot to rise to the presidency since the Revolution or the Civil War (another Democrat sponsored event). Whenever I get down and discouraged at the slow pace of justice against our seditious domestic enemies, I always try to remember what President Trump has already overcome. He is the only man standing between us and disaster. Pray. Pray hard. MAGA

Responding to Paul Ryan's demeaning criticism of him in his new book for not taking political advice, President Trump ... the man who has accomplished so much for America in two years ... punched back. He called him an effing boy scout. If Ryan hadn't quit and gone home, the Republicans could have changed Obama- care and given Americans real healthcare reform. Ryan wasn't an effing boy scout, Mr President. He was an effing quitter. Boy scouts don't learn to quit. They lead.

Excellent article, one of the best analyses of President Trump that I have seen. Old saying: "It aint't bragging if you can actually do it." Yep, exactly. And he CAN actually do it, HAS actually done it. Remember The Zero's derisive, "does he think he's got a magic wand?" From the ignorant, dysfunctional view of a Marxist - yes, he has a magic wand, in fact he has two - they are called the free market and deregulation. Both things that Marxists are CERTAIN do not exist. Fools. MAGA! Four more years!

🙏🏻 Thank you. Our President knows we work hard and love our country. We are not bombastic. We are not racist or anything other name they ascribe to us. We are the “sleeping giant” and we will be heard in 2020.

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley is throwing a flag on the stealth push by technology investors to expand the unregulated U.S.-India outsourcing economy. [Snip] Grassley’s office told Breitbart News he opposes the House’s EB-5 language because it does not include any reforms for the controversial EB-5 program: [Snip] Grassley’s opposition is a significant factor in the clubby GOP caucus, not least because he has held up the green card giveaway bill for ten years.

Peggy Noonan may be a fake conservative, but in her weekly column in the Wall Street Journal today, she nailed what racism is in America 55 years after passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. She wrote, "In the past, whether you were racist could be judged by your actions. [Snip] Now the idea has taken hold that the charge of racism doesn’t derive from thoughts and actions, from what people say and do, but from who they are. [Snip] So change is not possible; improvement will not happen. There’s no way out." *** Her definition is accurate. Her pessimism is not.

[Snip] The president's revival of love-it-or-leave-it is spot on. His words offended them. Real Americans cheered. But Goodwin wrote that the president should apologize to people who want to confiscate our guns, ban our cars, change our doctors, and raise our children transgendered. Why?

The American Psychological Association (APA) has created a task force to promote “consensual non-monogamous relationships” (CNM) and a petition seeking legal protected class status of individuals with multiple sex partners. [Snip] Liberty Counsel Chairman Mat Staver said in a statement the APA division’s task force “is more evidence that the American Psychological Association has lost it way.” “The same people who want to deny counseling for people with unwanted same-sex desires or confusion also want to promote sexual anarchy and make ‘open relationships’ a protected class,” he added. “It’s time to call out the APA for its unscientific bias that is harmful to people.”

As dollar stores sweep across America, they are facing growing scrutiny from opponents who argue that discount chains stifle local competition and limit poor communities' access to healthy food. Dollar stores have never been more popular. Yet a wave of cities and towns have passed laws curbing the expansion of Dollar General and Dollar Tree, which bought Family Dollar in 2015. The companies are the two largest dollar store operators in the country, combining for more than 30,000 stores throughout the United States, up from under 20,000 a decade ago. By comparison, Walmart, America's largest retailer, has 4,700 US stores.

Far Left Prepares To Throw Barack

The mood of left-wing Democrats might be neatly summarized by the media coverage of last weekend’s Netroots Nation conference. The progressive left seems poised to consign former President Barack Obama to the dustbin of history. Moreover, supposedly woke agitators do not seem to care how their exercise might affect black voters who comprise a crucial part of their 2020 electoral strategy. According to Vox, “Progressive activists know their enemy in the 2020 Democratic primary: Joe Biden.” As Vox notes, “Some activists at Netroots conceded they would support Biden in a general election if they had no other choice.” Dean Obeidallah of CNN and The Daily Beast finds this concession

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar has allegedly been uncooperative with her hometown paper’s efforts to get to the bottom of accusations that she committed marriage fraud, the paper’s political editor said. Omar’s brief congressional career has been dogged by accusations — which she has denied — that she married a male relative, possibly her brother. Omar and her current husband, Ahmed Hirsi, filed joint tax returns while Omar was married to another man, Ahmed Elmi, Minnesota campaign finance officials said.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) — “undermine America’s strength.” She also said she stands “solidarity” with the lawmakers.

 The United States 2016 election, when President Donald Trump was voted into office, may have been tied to a rise in premature births among Latina women across the US, according to a new study. In the nine months beginning with November 2016, about 3.2% to 3.6% more preterm births to Latina women occurred above the levels of preterm births that would have been expected had the election not occurred, suggests the study, published in the medical journal JAMA Network Open on Friday.

Democrats are calling for authorities to evaluate security for Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and the other three freshmen members of the so-called “Squad,” arguing that President Trump’s verbal attacks on them at a recent rally in North Carolina have threatened their safety, according to Politico. “It’s crystal clear to me that her life is in imminent danger,” Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) told the outlet. “He has threatened the safety of a member of Congress. That takes this to a whole different level.” Trump later disavowed the chant, and Omar reportedly told reporters Thursday she was not worried about her personal safety.

You know, it’s interesting about plastic straws. So you have a little straw, but what about the plates, the wrappers, and everything else that are much bigger and they’re made of the same material?
