An Al Goodwyn Political Cartoon:
Mitt Romney as Pierre Delecto, his Twitter

Mitt Romney, being in a perpetual search for a spine, has finally discovered Twitter, and gee, you don’t even have to use your real name. Armed with newfound, Twitter-inspired boldness, Romney is feeling like his courageous old self… from way back in high school … when he gave someone an unwelcome haircut. Since he needs a nom de plume for tweeting why not something French? And Pierre Delecto is born. “C’est moi” exclaimed Romney, because that’s another French term Pierre would use. Romney realizes the chutzpah he can command with an alter-ego. If only that spine-inducing social media personage were in play during the 2012 election.

To me, "Pierre Delecto" sounds like a male porn star's name -- the male counterpart to the transgendered "Kitty Kat."

But how about his chakra? Doesn't that need a boost by now? Manbearpig could help him out there if need be. I'll bet Pierre could solve a lot of things!

Pierre and his sister, John Kerry, can have their supercilious French giggles together---but it is all completely foreign to the Americans concerned about everyday issues. Neither of these two have any understanding of American citizens, nor have they ever lived anything but a plaything life.

Government deficit soars: Here's how President Trump will fix it 8 replies
Posted by BigAlPeoplesPal 10/28/2019 5:56:28 PM Post Reply
Recently released data shows that the annual Federal government budget deficit for the fiscal year (FY) 2019 increased to nearly $1 trillion. President Trump said during his 2016 presidential campaign that he would reduce the annual deficit. First, let’s recognize the cause for the increase in the current deficit. Contrary to what the media reports, the tax cuts enacted in 2018 did not add one penny to the deficit. Total tax revenues were slightly higher in 2018 than in 2017. And tax revenues were higher in fiscal 2019 than in 2018. After the tax cut, revenues did not decline. So the tax cut did not add to the deficit.
An Al Goodwyn Cartoon: Trump reveals al-Baghdadi death among media bias 4 replies

Al-Baghdadi is dead and the press are not feeling much better. A scan of the headlines will tell you everything you need to know about the media. Journalists woke up Sunday morning to a pending major Trump announcement planned for 9:00am. Hopes were high as they began praying for a sudden Trump resignation, or perhaps a recording of Trump singing “You Are My Sunshine” to Putin. Or maybe the discovery of a Trump diary written when he was 13. Unfortunately for our single-minded media elites, the announcement was about the raid and subsequent death of al-Baghdadi. Adam Schiff was inconsolable from within his impeachment bunker.
U.S. military dogs and special operations forces end al-Baghdadi's terror reign 7 replies

U.S. led special operations forces and military working dogs rained justice down on Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, founder and leader of ISIS. The Whitehouse announced Sunday the death of the world’s most wanted man. Al-Baghdadi, a former university professor, took the reins of ISIS in 2014. This wily tactician hid in the shadows, while he and his followers forced religious confessions from his victims through murder and vile torture. Using video to proudly display their evil atrocities to spark global outrage and local fear. President Trump’s top national security priority was crossing al-Baghdadi off the wanted terrorist list.

They’re insane. They’re fruit bats. They’re making us nuts just watching them. Many of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) impeachment elves are expecting the worst now that Attorney General Barr has announced that the ongoing investigation into the origins of the Mueller investigation has been stepped up to a criminal investigation. Could it be that those who perpetrated scurrilous lies, spying, and set-ups, including the use of international players since Trump’s inauguration and before, will finally be vulnerable to American justice? Are they aware of the impending danger as the light of day reveals what they’ve been up to? You’re damn tootin’, they’re aware.

For voters, it’s a blessing and a curse to live in a state like Virginia. Consider the beleaguered Republican voters of Fairfax County, Virginia (Population: 1 million +). Virginia is one of a few states and jurisdictions in America that hold major elections in the “off-years", during which neither Congressional nor Presidential elections take place. That’s part of the reason why determined, hard left Democrats have relentlessly turned this state blue over the past several election cycles. In these oddball, off-year elections, relatively few voters turn out to cast their ballots. That means that the party most effective in turning out its base is virtually guaranteed a win.

Vice President Pence says that al-Baghdadi is dead and its a victory for America. President Trump and Vice President Pence were informed on Friday that there was a very good chance al-Baghdadi was in the compound. The President made the decisive decision on Saturday morning. Without the obstruction of Adam Schiff or Nancy Pelosi. After notifying the American people that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was dead, a reporter asks the President if he has “notified the congressional leaders about this? Pelosi, Schiff, Mitch McConnell?” The President’s response shows how little trust he has for the Democrat party. In his blunt style he responds – no, not all.
Inside Trump's White House: Deep

None dare call it treason. Except for President Donald Trump that is. So says author Doug Wead after interviewing the president for his upcoming book “Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of His Presidency.” Of the domestic spy operations conducted on the 2016 Trump presidential campaign by the FBI’s counterintelligence division and the CIA – undoubtedly initiated on the orders of President Obama – Trump told Wead: “What they did… It was treasonous. The interesting thing out of all this is that we caught them spying on the election. They were spying on my campaign.” Oh, yes, treason. Democrats and never-Trump Republicans have waged a relentless campaign against Trump.

Heading into its 28th season on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” master of ceremonies Tom Bergeron tweeted to fans that it was his “hope that DWTS, in its return following an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitable divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.” Bergeron then moved from his show’s joy-sapping guest, Sean Spicer, and aimed his ire at the show’s producers, “We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call.” The “divisive” guest in question is indeed President Donald Trump’s former White House press spokesman.

After a wobbly open, Friday stocks market action picked up the pace mid-morning. The weak open was likely due to fallout caused by the Thursday after-hours trading slaughter of Amazon (trading symbol: AMZN) shares. On the other hand averages moved deep into the green zone a bit later. We could attribute that roughly 11 a.m. pickup to a CNBC headline. The cable and online financial network posted a breaking headline claiming a US trade rep indicated a partial US-China trade deal may be near.By “breaking headline,” I mean that CNBC just posted a headline on the alleged partial US-China trade deal.
Schiff, Clinton, Biden: The Dems lynching of President Trump and America 2 replies

America, known for the First Amendment and Free Speech Rights, has a bunch of leftist lunatics having issues with this first, and a most basic right. Take Joe Biden, please. In a recent tweet, Donald Trump uses the word lynching to describe the Democrat’s latest push to destroy his very life. Lynching is an extra-judicial mob method of injustice. Liberals tried the Russia hoax. And it did not work. It started even before his election, much less his inauguration. If they could lynch President Trump in the Jefferson Monument Rotunda, they would gladly remove the founding father and string #45 up. Before he becomes #46 in 2020.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry drew some comparisons between his ill-fated run for president in 2004 and former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. Republicans are using dirty tricks on Biden, Kerry told reporters Sunday at a rally in New Hampshire. He suggested President Donald Trump’s criticisms of Biden’s son’s business dealings in Ukraine are similar to those leveled against his Vietnam War record in the 1960s. “This is not a new strategy. They did it with me, about my military record,” he said at the rally.

Biden insisted again that Hunter did nothing wrong, but this time appeared to fault his staff for not cluing him in that there could be concerns about his son's involvement with the foreign company that had been under investigation while Biden was in office and dealing with Ukraine policy.

We all know that social media is bad for the soul. If someone is in, as they say, ‘a bad place’, a good friend wouldn’t send them onto Twitter. A good friend would tell them to switch off, put away the iPhone, and get some fresh air, away from the fervid online swamp of liking, blue-ticks, trolls, and ratios. George Conway needs that sort of friend right now. The poor man is clearly not well. His wife Kellyanne works for Donald Trump. He hates Trump and goes around saying how awful the 45th president is. There’s been all sorts of speculation as to the health of relationship,

Is the ghost of John McCain haunting Senator Lindsey Graham? The South Carolina Senator went on Maria Bartiromo’s Fox News show, Sunday Morning Futures, to throw a wet blanket on conservatives’ dreams of a Senate trial that would get to the bottom of the plot against President Trump. He wants to leave all those rocks in place, turning nothing over to see what crawls out. Instead, once the House managers present their case, he wants a quick vote, presumably ending in dismissal of the case. In particular, Graham ruled out calling Adam Schiff to testify.

"What happened to Drudge?"A lot of people have been asking that question lately. If you talk to conservatives these days, you'll hear that Matt Drudge's eponymous news aggregation site has gone over to the dark side—that Matt's joined the anti-Trump resistance. And now, Rasmussen Reports, an arguably reputable polling operation, is calling Drudge out on Twitter, even suggesting that the site has been sold. The whole kerfuffle appears to have begun at the end of November, when the Bongino Report, touted as a Trump-friendly alternative to Drudge, launched. Bongino taunted Drudge with a pair of tweets:

While he was there, he also boasted how journalists in his day could be counted on to report accurately; but today, people got their news from social media which couldn’t be trusted. While comparing his time covering Watergate to the current impeachment proceedings, Brokaw told host Stephen Colbert how journalists used to be considered trustworthy, because they had plenty of time to do their own sourcing and could control what was reported:
