Trump Is Derailing The Elite’s Gravy Train

Like the garbage French elite of long ago, our American garbage elite of today has learned nothing and forgotten nothing. For four years, it has been focused entirely on deep sixing Donald Trump for his unforgivable crime of demanding that our ruling caste be held accountable for its legacy of failure. Instead of focusing on not being terrible at their job of running America’s institutions, our elitists have decided that the real problem is us Normals being angry about how they are terrible at their job of running America’s institutions. So, let’s imagine that they finally vanquish Trump, though every time they come up against him they end up

I guess there is a thesis in this rambling essay, but it is hard to decipher all the slangy terms, and I gave up the effort to read it through.

Wow! FTA: “Before Trump. Back then, progressive Democrats got their bizarre social pathologies normalized. Moderate Democrats got money, power and an open season on the local talent. Corporate types represented largely by squishy Republicans got globalism and the ability to ship our jobs out and import Third World serfs in. And the fake conservatives of Conservative, Inc., got to cash in without the necessity of actually conserving anything. The only people that the old system didn’t work for were the American people.” Another good reason why the democrats and rhinos hate being exposed!

The sad part is the non media goes along with everything the fake media says & does. It what they don't report that makes them irrelevant.

Excellent article! It nails the democrats, Deep State and the elites in this country that are out to destroy this President and why. It is not a difficult concept to understand. The President means to expose this cabal and destroy it because it is fundamentally opposed to the founding principles of this country. A bunch of arrogant elites believe they and they alone have the power to control and rule over the rest of us. They have created a shadow government by, for and of the most wretched, greedy, and power hungry among us. What has thrown them into this maelstrom of political madness is we the people have rejected their candidate. We know what they have done to this country and we want them held accountable and finally have someone who has the guts to do it on our behalf. President Trump is the guy standing in the breach fighting the cabal that would eagerly jettison the Constitution, Bill of Rights and rule of law because these founding principles get in their way. Their goal is to deny the American people their basic right of self-government by nullifying their vote. They want us powerless to choose our leaders and that is tyranny.

I would say the saddest part is that a significant part of the electorate, having seen all this playing out, seeing the abject failure of dems although not perhaps understanding the WHY of it all, is still eager to support NOT Trump on the 2020 ballet. Many women think it is more important to have the "right" to kill their unborn children than to live in a country that can properly educate them and have meaningful jobs for them. Many minorities think it is more important to get poverty level government assistance instead of a good job that puts them on a path to escape being the thralls of the state. Many of the Left think it is more important to hate Trump for trivial and fake infractions than to seek a strong, fully employed, energy independent, safer from terrorists, non corrupt bureaucracy, and not bowing to other countries nation. The existence of this sizable group of people shows the elite have been very active and successful in undermining our Country for a very long time. This latest push is simply their shocked response over the upset of their plans in 2016. After BO's election in 2008, they thought they OWNED this Country. OUR lesson is that they exist, they don't wish us well, and we need to take positive actions to push them away and remove them from the levers of power. If not, THEY WILL BE BACK.

Trump should try, I say try because he wouldn't actually have the authority, to create an executive order that would make all elected officials in the DC swamp subject to any rules and regulations they pass on us. Let them go on social security, face the possibility of medicare for all, obey any ethics laws that we have to obey and have pension plans comparable to those in the private sector. Then you'll see just how corrupt they ALL are. Rules are just for the little people.....get it?.

Boy is this title right on the mark. An old story about the new Senator who arrives and is greeted by a friendly older Senator, with smiles and a handshake. And some advise: "Keep your hands out of MY pockets." Yep, the ulitmate sin in DC is to interfere with the flow of graft to the pols. Unacceptable. THAT is what Trump is actually guilty of that upsets so many.

'Climate emergency' declaration takes

Posted by Pluperfect 11/12/2019 4:36:41 AM Post Reply
There was something goofy about the petition signed by 11,258 “world scientists” from 153 countries declaring a “climate emergency.” One “scientist” was named “Mouse, Micky” from the “Micky Mouse Institute for the Blind, Nambia.” Another was Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts. And then there was “Araminta Aardvark” from the fictional University of Neasden. Among the “Alliance of World Scientists” members who were apparently real people, many identified themselves as teachers, students, administrators, statisticians, economists, technicians, therapists, doctors, psychologists — not climate scientists. As it turns out, however, being recognized as a “world scientist” may be easier than you think.

The brutal killing of three American women and six children a week ago in Mexico sparked outrage on both sides of the border. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has promised justice, and already set up a special task force to find the attackers. President Donald J. Trump, meanwhile, has suggested American troops be sent in to combat the rising tide of violence. Rhetoric aside, some important facts remain in doubt, with social media and tabloids generating increasingly bizarre conspiracy theories. The day after the killing, the New York Post, for instance, reported that members of the victims’ community may have been recruited

Earlier today, a lawyer representing Tulsi Gabbard wrote to Hillary Clinton accusing her of defaming Gabbard by calling her a Russian asset and demanding a retraction: A letter from the Gabbard campaign’s legal counsel insisted that Gabbard is not a Russian asset, and that Clinton knew the statement was untrue when she said it. It is almost impossible for a public official like Tulsi Gabbard to win a defamation case under existing law, but Clinton’s claim was so ridiculous that Tulsi might have a shot.

Appearing at his Oct. 29 deposition in full dress uniform, the decorated Army officer, now a White House National Security Council Ukraine expert, was the first witness who had actually listened to the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that is at the heart of the Democratic impeachment campaign.

In a recent poll by YouGov and the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, 70 percent of millennial Americans (23 to 38 years old) are likely to vote socialist, and 36 percent have a favorable view of communism. In a 2018 YouGov poll, millennials are almost four times as likely as those Americans older than 54 to say they are not proud to be an American and almost three times as likely to disagree with the statement that “America is the greatest country in the world.” These generational differences are stark and disturbing for the future of America.

After weeks of conducting hearings in private, the House impeachment ­inquiry is going public this week. But if the Democrats stage-managing this affair have their way, there will be one ­element of their presidential-misconduct allegations that won’t be part of the show: Hunter Biden. Democrats believe that the vice-presidential son’s Ukraine shenanigans are irrelevant to impeachment. They want the hearings to be entirely focused on their accusation that President Trump threatened to withhold American military aid to force Kiev to investigate a political rival. They say that questions about what Hunter did or didn’t do, and what his father knew and when he knew it, are just a conspiracy theory

When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the Democrats would launch an “official impeachment inquiry,” she said this action had been made necessary by a whistleblower complaint concerning a phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Madam Speaker used the term “whistleblower” no fewer than eight times in her five-minute statement. Saturday, however, we learned that the anonymous individual whose complaint loomed so large in the speaker’s decision to launch the investigation will not be permitted to testify before Congress. House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), whom Pelosi assigned to lead the inquiry, announced that the whistleblower’s testimony would be “redundant.” Chairman Schiff’s relegation of the whistleblower

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney’s last-minute effort to join a lawsuit that could determine whether senior administration officials testify in the impeachment inquiry was an unwelcome surprise to former top national security aides, highlighting internal divisions among President Trump’s advisers in the face of the probe. Former national security adviser John Bolton’s advisers and allies were taken aback to learn late Friday that Mulvaney had gone to court seeking to join a separation-of-powers lawsuit filed against Trump and the House leadership, according to people familiar with their views, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing inquiry.

During HPSCI testimony, William Taylor, the charge d’affairs of the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, was asked by a staff lawyer on the committee whether the name Eric Ciaramella was familiar to him. “Does a person by the name of Eric Ciaramella ring a bell for you?” asked Steve Castor, a committee staff counsel asked Taylor during a deposition on October 22.

Federal prosecutors have accused a Virginia doctor of performing surgeries on women -- such as hysterectomies and removing their fallopian tubes without their consent according to court documents. Javaid Perwaiz, 69, faces several charges related to insurance fraud as a result of an investigation that began in September 2018 after the FBI received a tip from a hospital employee who suspected he was "performing unnecessary surgeries on unsuspecting patients," according to the criminal complaint, filed Friday in the Eastern District of Virginia. The unidentified patients would advise hospital staff that they were there for their "annual clean outs" and were not aware of the procedures they were undergoing, the affidavit states.

“It’s not an impeachment resolution,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Pelosi had just announced the House would, in fact, hold a vote to formalize the impeachment probe and establish parameters for the investigation late last month. The House speaker had argued for weeks such a step wasn’t necessary. Congressional Republicans and members of the administration countered that the White House shouldn’t cooperate because the House never codified the inquiry. “They would much rather discuss process,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., when asked about the GOP demand for a vote. “They can’t defend the president’s conduct.”

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- No. 2 LSU ended an eight-game losing streak to its SEC West rival with a stunning 46-41 victory over No. 3 Alabama under the lights at Bryant-Denny Stadium. For the first time since 2011, the Tigers have beaten the Crimson Tide, and it was a game that felt entirely different than the one these teams played the last time LSU beat Alabama, 9-6. The win not only got the proverbial Alabama monkey off LSU's back, but it put the Tigers firmly in the driver's seat in the SEC West. It likely cements Joe Burrow in front of the Heisman Trophy race as well.

Despite grabbing wall-to-wall press coverage over the past week since hints of his possible run surfaced, Bloomberg came out as the favorite candidate for just 4-percent of Democratic primary voters, according to the Morning Consult poll. It puts the former New York mayor in sixth place, just behind Sen. Kamala Harris and Mayor Pete Buttigieg and clearly trailing Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen.
