What’s really behind the rise
in political violence

New York Post, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 9/14/2018 8:52:29 AM

This is far from the only case of political violence we’ve seen in recent years. The most famous was, of course, the congressional baseball shooting by a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) was nearly murdered during the carnage. Now Scalise says: “You’ve got some people on the left that just want this idea of resist … You’ve gotten to where there are death threats and literal attacks on lives … and frankly, what I want to see is the left stand up against this.” Meanwhile, the right has seen its own violent crazies.

Ben, really? Look at the language of the left and the left leadership´s adoration of the "resistance" and antifa. Do you see that from the right? Has anyone in the leadership on the right called harassment, intimidation and outright violence against those on the left? No.

And to the economy, it IS Trump´s policies that are turning the economy around. To say otherwise is intellectually dishonest.

And Finally, "Free Trade" isn´t allowing China flood our markets with anything and everything while they simultaneously limit imports and apply tariffs what they do allow in.

I beg to differ:

The economy is far too complex and government is far too complicated for executive tinkering to be attributed to success or blamed for failure.

Obama had nothing to do with our rotten economy? Trump had nothing to do with our present flourishing economy?

Sorry, Ben is wrong.

This is far from the only case of political violence we’ve seen in recent years.

The most famous was, of course, the congressional baseball shooting by a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter. .... Meanwhile, the right has seen its own violent crazies. Last month, Robert Chain, 68, of California was arrested after allegedly calling The Boston Globe newsroom and threatening to shoot employees. .... With that said, something is deeply wrong.

What’s deeply wrong is that we now attribute all failings to the government and all successes to the government.


No, Ben. What´s wrong is "journalists" like you who conflate the rantings of the mentally ill with the wholesale campaign of physical violence perpetrated by rank-and-file Left. I not that you were unable to cite a single case of actual violence by a Trump supporter. Now, go buy Jonah a coffee and tell each other how awful Trump is.

The commies feel they are losing power and they hate everyone that they can´t control. They thought they had won when Obama and Hillary were dictating to us all but now they can´t even get us to believe their fake news.

The Nazis had their Brownshirts and the Progressives have their Antifa. Antifa attacked people peacefully attending Trump rallies with the complicity of local Democrat politicians and police. Antifa snuck up on conservative demonstrators and tried to kill them by hitting them in the head with a heavy metal bike lock and largely escaped the consequences because the Dem local DA chose not to prosecute him for violating civil rights and attempted murder. Where have Republicans used violence for political purposes?

Stunning: Ohr Testimony Reveals Top DOJ
Officials Briefed About Steele Before FISA
Sara Carter.com, by Sara Carter    Original Article

Three top Senior Justice Department officials, two who are senior prosecutors on Robert Mueller’ Special Counsel, met with Bruce Ohr in the summer of 2016. This meeting happened well before the FBI sought a FISA warrant on a Trump campaign official. Ohr informed the trio of DOJ officials about his close contact with former British Spy Christopher Steele, whose dossier was part of the evidence used to investigate the Trump campaign. Further, Ohr warned the dossier was not vetted. The FBI, however, used as the bulk of evidence from the dossier to obtain

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence cleared the air Tuesday after several posts circulated around social media attributing to him a quote he claims he never said during his White House visit Monday. The quote he denied saying was: "President Trump got all our favorite foods. It was the best meal we ever had. Then we go and see the coastal elite media trashing it for not being organic vegan. We’re football players, not bloggers. This was a perfect blue-collar party.”

The shutdown hurts the President. Still
the anti-Trump media can’t keep off Russia
Spectator, by Freddy Gray    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/14/2019 12:25:04     Post Reply
Government shutdown stories aren’t sexy, everyone can see that. Nevertheless, it is curious that the journalists who most loathe Trump are so willing to distract their audiences from a political crisis which polls show is hurting the President, to focus again on the exhausting Russia conspiracy, which isn’t. This weekend, we saw another flurry of noisy Trump-Russia scoops. The latest allegations feel thinner than usual — yet still they dominated the airwaves and Twitter feeds of media VIPs. On Friday, the New York Times related that the FBI ‘became so concerned’ about Trump’s firing of FBI director James B. Comey

What the nation ought to

Mayor de Blasio gave his sixth State of the City address Thursday, and he conjured an image of a revolutionary leader prying money from terrified billionaires. That’s because, in a Democratic primary with candidates tracking increasingly leftward, he stands out for the wrong reason: When it comes to governing, de Blasio is more old-school, big-city Democratic pragmatist than new-school, Democratic Socialist. He fears his left flank. De Blasio used to talk about New York as a tale of two cities. Now, he is trying to write a tale for two audiences.

In border fight, Democrats want ´technological
wall´ that won´t keep anybody out
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/14/2019 7:24:59     Post Reply
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California says a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border would be "immoral." Instead, she favors something she calls a "technological wall." Another top House Democrat, Rep. Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, calls it a "smart wall." Instead of building an actual physical barrier of steel, concrete, or some other material, Pelosi, Clyburn, and other Democrats advocate employing an array of high-tech devices — drones, infrared sensors, surveillance cameras, and more — to keep track of activity at the border without physical impediments to discourage illegal crossings.

Supreme Court turns down
mysterious Mueller subpoena fight

The Supreme Court has declined to intervene in a mysterious subpoena fight that apparently involved an unidentified foreign-government-owned company and special counsel Robert Mueller. Last month, the unknown firm asked the high court to block a federal judge’s contempt order and $50,000-a-day penalty for refusing to comply with the subpoena, arguing that the company is immune from U.S. grand jury subpoenas. The company also insisted that complying with the subpoena would violate the law in the firm’s home country.

We all knew Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer´s rebuttal to President Donald Trump´s primetime address would be nothing but a joke. None of us really knew just how bad it would truly be though. Naturally, after watching the train wreck occur, Americans – primarily conservatives – took to Twitter to mock the duo. After all, their address was one of the most awkward addresses we´ve ever seen.

Los Angeles County agrees to purge

Los Angeles County has agreed to conduct a purge of its voting rolls, in a move that could strip perhaps 1.5 million inactive voters from the lists of those eligible to cast ballots. The county made the deal in a settlement last week with Judicial Watch, a conservative public interest firm, saying that under a recent Supreme Court ruling, it has a duty to remove names of people who appear to have either died, moved from the county or lost interest in voting. The county committed to mailing hundreds of thousands of voters already deemed inactive

U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered only six immigrants at ports of entry on the U.S-Mexico border in the first half of fiscal year 2018 whose names were on a federal government list of known or suspected terrorists, according to CBP data provided to Congress in May 2018 and obtained by NBC News.

In the wake of the deaths of two migrant children, outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly blamed former Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the policy that separated children from their parents at the border. “What happened was Jeff Sessions, he was the one that instituted the zero-tolerance process on the border that resulted in both people being detained and the family separation,” Kelly told the Los Angeles Times in an interview published Sunday. “He surprised us.”

The German weekly Der Spiegel, one of the top-selling publications in Europe, is reeling from a scandal that revealed that a star reporter has reportedly faked stories for years. Many of the faked stories written by Claas Relotius were centered in the United States or in the Middle East. So far, Der Spiegel editors said Wednesday, they had found that Relotius “made up stories and invented protagonists” in at least 14 of the 60 stories examined so far. But they said the investigation is only beginning. The editors said they were “astounded and sad” by the discovery, which they called “a low point in Der Spiegel’s 70-year history.”

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.

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."

He also offered $800 million in urgent humanitarian assistance, 75 new immigration teams to reduce the court backlog of 900,000 cases, which he called an ´impossible nightmare,´ in remarks from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.

Now, former associate Attorney General Bruce Ohr has confirmed that´s true. If so, these are criminal acts. The only question is, what do we do now?
