Musician Linda Ronstadt drew parallels between the election of President Trump and the rise of the Nazis in Germany during an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN. "You have read a lot about the Weimar Republic in Germany, and you sort of see great parallels between then and now," Cooper said in a preview clip released Monday. "Well, great parallels," said Ronstadt. "There were a lot of chances. Hitler rose to power; there were a lot of chances to stop him, and they didn't speak out. And the industrial complex thought they could control him once they got him in office. And of course, he was not controllable."

What a frigging moron and it is clear that "Weimer Republic" is a buzzword to Ronstadt. She knows nothing about Weimar: 1) After a disastrous WWI in which the social structure of Germany and economy was wrecked, there was hyper-inflation and Germany was laboring under horrific reparations imposed by the Frogs and the Brits. The lower and middle classes were suffering. Where is the parallel there between Weimar and the US? We are experiencing the best economy in 50 years with low inflation and our economy is strong. The lower classes and middle class are doing far better than under Obozo. The only weaknesses in our social structure is the result of the libtards. 2) The brownshirts are akin to Antifa and BLM. As I recall, these are institutions on the left and they support the Demtards. Anderson Cooper, a moron, is in the same league with Ronstadt

Back when Howard Stern was at the top of his game, producer Gary Dell'Abate did one of his incognito spoof interviews with her. Without referencing her enormous weight gain, he calmly asked if there was anything more annoying than slow service at a restaurant. I almost ran off the road laughing.

Like the nazi party after WWII, the Dimokkkrap party should have been abolished after it lost the Civil War. Who knew linda was such an insightful scholar. I thought she was just a stupid singer. I guess Trump’s brown shirts ever present in our streets was her first clue; oh wait, they’re leftists. Perhaps his postcard art and jail term for his attempted coup. No, that’s the left. His attempts to seize all weapons; no wait he hasn’t done that yet. But she knows he’s thinking it!!

Pathetic. Linda whose political party called for harassment of their opponents? You remember, 'get in their face,' 'bring a gun,' 'resist.' etc.? Whose party rioted and attempted to kill people? You know swinging a padlock at their heads hoping to murder them on the street. Attacking with metal poles, bottles and spikes and in one case going after an innocent with a knife before the rat was scared off. YOUR party wears a uniform and breaks the law attacking people and property. It's all black and they wear masks because they are entitled cowards, like you. Also about as smart. Hitler was LOVED by the German people because he promised them all kinds of 'free' things thru National SOCIALISM. Rats want to pretend that didn't happen, but it's part of history. Also Donald Trump fans didn't attempt to murder congressmen playing softball. That maniac was one of yours, so kindly shut up and apologize for lying.

Though I have considered her to be a great singer , I wouldn't classify her as a musician. Be that as it may, I didn't realize that she was actually an historian. Watching snippets of her recent interviews, I would say she's merely a run of the mill liberal extremist. I have been blessed to have seen her in concert 25 years ago but don't excuse her bitterness and hate of our president and those of us who admire and respect what he has done for this country.

Nancy Pelosi, AKA Nasty Nancy, allowed Adam Schiff, AKA Shifty Schiff, to run the impeachment "inquiry" through Shifty's Intelligence Committee, where Shifty had total control. He set the rules to allow only the witnesses he wanted. He lied in his opening statement to commence the inquiry by making up President Trump's phone conversation with Ukraine's President Zelensky. The resulting vote to impeach was a foregone conclusion regardless of the evidence, or lack thereof. Pelosi has not sent Shifty's articles of impeachment to the Senate for a trial because she said she wants to first see the Senate trial procedures.

Less than two weeks ago, Iran's president told a group of Iranian expats in Kuala Lumpur that they were violating the whole thing: Iran President Hassan Rouhani said his country is working on the development of new, advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges, according to Iranian state-run news agency IRNA, a move that appears to violate the landmark nuclear agreement Tehran signed with world powers in 2015.

One month shy of completing three years in office, President Trump has fulfilled or is making significant progress on most of his 2016 campaign promises, which aides said give him a strong reelection argument to counter his impeachment by a bitterly partisan House last week. As the president and his team ready for the 2020 campaign at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, officials said it would be built on the administration's achievements list of 15 categories and 319 “results.” Vice President Mike Pence told Secrets that the message is simple: “Promises made, promises kept.” Pence, who has already hit the campaign trail in a specially outfitted Trump-Pence bus, added,

From the first years of a century already one-fifth completed, we’ve been told that a new, ascendant America — more nonwhite, more culturally liberal, more feminist — was going to dominate our politics for years to come. Those predictions have, partially, come true. Barack Obama was elected and reelected president in 2008 and 2012, and Democrats won majorities in House contests in 2006, 2008, and 2018. But those are slimmer pickings than the emerging majorities were promised. And President Trump’s victory in 2016 has made a mockery of the predictions.

New York is in a State of Decline. Despite the nation’s longest economic expansion, the Empire State is actually losing population, an analysis of newly released US Census data released Monday reveals. The total state population as of mid-2019 was 19,453,561 — a drop of 76,790, or 0.4 percent, from the previous year, according to the study by the Empire Center for Public Policy. New York was one of only 10 states to suffer a total population decline in 2018-19 — its fourth consecutive annual decrease after five years of growth, and the largest population drop of any state. Only West Virginia, Alaska and Illinois saw their populations fall at a faster percentage clip.

A columnist writing at AZCentral.com suggests it was “terrifying” that parishioners were armed at the church in White Settlement, Texas. On December 29, Breitbart News reported that a gunman at West Freeway Church of Christ opened fire, only to be shot dead by an armed parishioner. Jack Wilson, the good guy with a gun, was one of many parishioners who drew their guns to fight back when the heinous attack began. On December 31, Elivia Diaz, editorial columnist for the Republic and AZcentral.com reacted to the quick takedown of the gunman by claiming that Wilson’s defensive gun use “has turned into a PR tool by gun advocates.”

But there is no question Jack Wilson acted heroically as a church volunteer security guard when he killed a killer in the sanctuary of the West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, Texas, on Sunday. Wilson, a deeply experienced firearms instructor, was legally carrying and took down a gunman with a single shot.

Maybe Democrats have decided that, in the era of President Trump, honesty is no longer required. Or maybe Elizabeth Warren is just too insecure to tell the truth about her own life. Whatever the reason, the Massachusetts senator has built her campaign on a foundation of exaggerations and misrepresentations. It's common knowledge by now that Warren, one of the top four 2020 Democratic presidential contenders, identified as a Native American, despite being somewhere between 0.1% and 3% Native American and having zero experience in tribal life. If only her misrepresentations began and ended there. Ask her constituents in Massachusetts and they may remind you that the senator also fibbed when she promised

Oh, Beto. Ronald Reagan once characterized people like Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke when he said, "It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant.

The White House National Security Council staff is being downsized sharply in a bid to improve efficiency within the policy coordinating body by consolidating positions and cutting staff. A second, unspoken thrust of the overhaul is a hoped-for end to what many critics see as a string of politically damaging, unauthorized disclosures of sensitive information. Leaks of President Trump’s conversations with foreign leaders and other damaging disclosures likely originated with anti-Trump officials in the White House who stayed over from the Obama administration, according to several current and former White House officials. White House National Security Adviser Robert C. O’Brien is leading the NSC reform effort.
