Hurricanes, Death Tolls, and Trump
American Greatness, by Julie Kelly

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 9/14/2018 5:58:55 AM

It’s Hurricane Katrina all over again. Since the election of climate denier Donald Trump, the politicization of major hurricanes—along with a torrent of hysterical news coverage and blame-laying—is back en vogue. During last year’s unusually active hurricane season, the media, Democratic politicians and scientific activists claimed the devastating storms were Trump’s fault even though he had been president for less than a year; some suggested voters in the red states that helped elect Trump deserved to have their property destroyed or even to be killed. (The Washington Post editorial board already this week has blamed Trump for Hurricane Florence,

The only way to define leftists is that they are pathetic and think that the rest of the country is as stupid as they are. They look like a bunch of shipwrecked non-swimmers reaching for anything that floats with a goal of drowning Donald Trump and the rest of us in their sea of stupidity. They have become so insane and predictable that most of us knew that they would try to use the hurricane to attempt to hurt the President before they did. The phrase that comes to mind is, "They shoot horses don´t they?"

Here´s the money quote from the article: " Lack of electricity, a poor healthcare system, an unsanitary water system, and inept government were no doubt exacerbated by the storm, but they were all major problems in Puerto Rico pre-Maria."

Of course anyone with half a brain would have surmised this until a little basic research confirmed it. But far be it from the MSM to do that. They would be guilty of practicing journalism and we can´t have that.

#3, that jibes exactly with the information I have received from people who have lived in PR, or have relatives there. A wobbly infrastructure and a lot of ´disappearing´ money has been the norm for decades.

Some folks I know at Air Combat Command headquarters at Langley AFB Virginia specialize in Airport Surveillance Radar systems. They were one of the first groups sent to PR to install a number of portable ASRs to enable rescue/resupply flight operations.

President Donald Trump´s fury over a border wall continues to flare as he blames Mexico for failing to stop caravans from marching into the U.S. ´Mexico is doing NOTHING to stop the Caravan which is now fully formed and heading to the United States,´ he tweeted Saturday morning. ´We stopped the last two - many are still in Mexico but can’t get through our Wall, but it takes a lot of Border Agents if there is no Wall. Not easy!’ (Snip) ´If you had a wall, we wouldn´t have this problem.

It’s All About the Wall
American Greatness, by Roger Kimball    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/20/2019 7:03:01     Post Reply
Bismarck said that politics is the art of the possible. It looks like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), and other Democrats regard politics as the art of intransigence. In his brief remarks Saturday on border security, Donald Trump outlined a plan that made multiple concessions to Democratic desiderata in exchange for $5.7 billion to fund 230 miles of the wall along the southern U.S. border. Indeed, the president’s plan deliberately took cues from some Durbin’s own legislation on the subject. Didn’t matter. Pelosi said the president’s plan was “a non-starter.”

President Trump made what most level-headed observers, even those who don’t share his views, a reasonable offer/concession to Democrats (so much so it even upset some of his supporters) in order to end the shutdown and solve some of the most serious border-related problems facing the nation. And how did House Speaker Nancy Pelosi react? She said NO and left town… In a nationally televised statement from the White House, President Trump offered concessions on DACA, expressed a desire to work with Democrats toward a much-needed overhaul of the outdated immigration system and a desire to

30 Minutes before President Trump began to outline his compromise proposal (4:00pm, from the White House), Speaker Nancy Pelosi auto-published the response position of Democrats, NO DEAL:(From The Speaker) “Democrats were hopeful that the President was finally willing to re-open government and proceed with a much-needed discussion to protect the border. “Unfortunately, initial reports make clear that his proposal is a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives.

The Democrat wrath against Judge Brett Kavanaugh made little sense last September because his vote was not considered a swing vote. Nevertheless, Democrats beclowned themselves with allegations from a perjuring professor and silly nonsense about fart jokes in his high school yearbook. (Qui boofed?) But Stan Greene at the Santa Monica Observer had an excellent explanation at the time: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats who pushed BuzzFeed’s anonymously-sourced report that President Trump had instructed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress were silent Friday evening after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office issued a statement disputing the report. (Snip) Hours before Mueller’s statement, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) issued a statement, suggesting the president may have committed “subornation of perjury” as well as “obstruction of justice,” and pledging to investigate the allegations. “Our Committee is determined to get to the bottom of this,” he said.

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin fretted Friday that many Americans would dismiss the news media as a "bunch of leftist liars" in the wake of the BuzzFeed News story called "not accurate" by special counsel Robert Mueller´s office. BuzzFeed set off a Washington firestorm on Thursday with its report that President Donald Trump had directed longtime lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. However, on Friday night, a spokesman for Mueller´s office said the report was "not accurate."

Oh, boy. The look on Representative Adam Schiff’s face was priceless as the California Democrat disembarked the Air Force bus on Thursday. A few days ago, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) sent a letter to the White House, practically disinviting the president of the United States from giving his State of the Union Address on January 29. She cited security concerns and suggested that the president reschedule his address for a time after the government shutdown. But everyone knew that her explanation was absolute nonsense.

It’s a good thing President Trump canceled the Democrats’ overseas excursion this weekend because Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) has some work to do here at home. For starters, he needs to take a red pen to his memo that defended the deceptive tactics used by the FBI to obtain a FISA warrant on Trump campaign aide Carter Page days before the 2016 presidential election. The new chairman of the House Intelligence Committee authored a memo dated January 28, 2018, ironically titled, “Correcting the Record—The Russia Investigation.” But it is Schiff who needs to correct his own record in

Vox dubbed her “the most buzzed-about first-term member of the House of Representatives,” and The Atlantic credited her with an “unusually transparent approach to public relations.” She’s a former Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer and a self-styled democratic socialist.

The federal government shutdown has presented a unique opportunity for President Donald Trump to clear out the deadwood in the federal bureaucracy, saving U.S. taxpayers billions of dollars in salaries, perks, and rented office space for people who aren´t doing anything productive. At the same time, Trump can get rid of dozens, possibly even hundreds of Deep State operatives in the government, handpicked by Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for their loyalty to the Democratic Party, not their country or the law. These people leak like a screen door in a submarine, mainly to CNN and MSNBC, the twin headquarters

A near majority of Republicans do not have a favorable view of freshman Senator Willard “Mitt” Romney (R-UT), according to a PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll released on Thursday. The poll, conducted January 10-13, found 48% of “Republicans and conservative-leaning” have an “unfavorable” view Romney. Just 29% view Romney favorably while another 23% are “unsure” or “never heard” of him. Never Trumpers like Bill Kristol have said Romney is now the “leader of the Republican Resistance to” President Donald Trump, and the PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll again shows how unpopular of a label that is among Republicans.
