Hilarious: Andrea Mitchell asks
historian to debunk a Trump claim

An odd form of hubris has overtaken Democrats in both their political and media branches. They are so certain that President Trump is ignorant and they are smart that they march right into traps of their own devising. Consider this face plant by Andrea Mitchell, dead certain that President Trump must be incorrect in has claim about Abraham Lincoln: that event the Gettysburg Address was criticized by Lincoln’s contemporaries (snip) BESCHLOSS: “Yes, he was criticized for to Gettysburg Address by newspapers that hated Lincoln and wanted to support his opponent the next year when he ran for reelection

The narrative is always that the Republican is dumb. I saw it with Reagan, Ford, Bush (41 and 43) and now Trump. Trump is using this to his advantage. There are things going on in the background that the left is completely unaware of, such as the dismantling of the Deep State, and the arrest/future arrests of the evil people. According to Government records, there are over 55k secret sealed indictments ready to be unleashed. Why do you think Trump approved over $200M to modify Gitmo last year. He also approved hiring on 22 privately owned prisons in the US.

And why did Lindsey Graham bring up Tribunals with Justice Kavanaugh? Planting the seeds. And why did Trump sign the Executive Order to declare a State of Emergency last December?

Also, keep in mind that when Telsa (the real guy) passed away back in the 40´s the US Government recovered his notes and papers. Each paper was reviewed to pass off information to our Government and Industry. They needed a very smart person to do that. Who could decipher Telsa´s work and get it to the right person. That person was John Trump, uncle of our President.

Andrea my dear, that is not only factual, it is relatively common knowledge in educated circles. I mean real education, old school. Feel free to reach out to me next time, if I don´t know I know people who do know.

At least she asked the historian before spouting off. She could lose her lefty cred for that.

The guy Andrea Mitchell interviewed, Michael Beschloss, is the author of "Arming America", a book that purported to show there were almost no guns in the USA around the time of the Revolutionary War. His research was faked, he couldn´t produce any documentation, his book was thoroughly debunked, and his reputation was ruined. That Mitchell dug him up for an interview shows how desperate they are.

Yes Andrea, the Democrats hated President Lincoln almost as much as Trump. Even then violence was the major part of their agenda. The Democrats were able to assassinate President Lincoln, something they still try to do whenever they don´t win.

Lincoln won in 1860 with 39.6% of the popular vote.
He was treated badly by many newspapers, who made fun of him as being an ugly ape, a backward hick, uneducated, uncultured. And he was badly panned for his Gettysburg address, after following a noted orator who spoke for about two hours.
If Andrea didn´t know that, she is losing it.

Yes, "insufferable-know-it-all" dems, the Gettysburg address and Lincoln were much maligned. Many disliked Abe, many thought it way, way too short. Others wanted grand soaring words rather than a short, somber statement.

Beside the Gettysburg Address, we were taught many of the less than flattering press reports and how Abe handled them - sometimes humorously. One such intended put down meant to embarrass Lincoln was when a reporter asked him what his grandfather did for a living, full knowing his deeply humble roots. Lincoln cut him short with "I´m much more concerned about what his grandson is doing." Or something to that effect.

Lincoln also is the one US President no comedian has ever told a funny joke about.

The breathtaking ignorance, unabashed espousal of authoritarian policies and nonsensical concepts by the current poster child of the American Left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is a window into the end-product of the indoctrination and resultant mindset of a significant demographic segment of nearly two generations. While Marxist philosophy still undergirds this mindset, a uniquely American doctrine has become the tip of the spear in what will be a failed attempt in transforming the United States into a socialist nation.

Last week´s most overlooked news was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez revealing herself as a champion of the "Reconquista" war against Europeans. The Mexican Reconquista movement is an openly admitted effort by Hispanic activists to take "back" California (Southern especially), New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas through immigration and activism. This is one of several driving forces behind allowing illegal immigration. Ocasio-Cortez (D-Venezuela) dominated news on February 7 appearing at a rally to abolish or defund the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

The mainstream media pretends that their scorn for President Trump is almost universally shared overseas.

The Judiciary Committee hearing on February 8, 2019, held by Chairman Nadler (D-N.Y.) with committee witness Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, became an epic historic failure. Acting A.G. Whitaker´s testimony is for the ages. It is simple: just watch clips from the hearing while taking note of the video of the Iowa Hawkeyes scoring a touchdown on a pass thrown to Number 46, Matt Whitaker. If a person is capable of doing what Number 46 did under tremendous pressure, then the hearing was easily a symbolic walk in the park for the Acting A.G.

Awhile back, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced to recuse himself from the investigation into President Trump´s campaign´s supposed collusion with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary Clinton. The grounds for it was that Sessions had shaken hands and made small talk with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak. Sessions, being the honorable naif that he was, obliged. Well, now the shoe is on the other tootsie.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could utter absolute gibberish and the media would swoon before her and her supporters would declare her a genius. How do we know? Because Ocasio-Cortez frequently utters gibberish and the media and her supporters swoon before her. Ocasio-Cortez doesn´t "misspeak." She doesn´t make gaffes. She doesn´t "err," get tongue tied, have brain farts, or get mixed up. She is fundamentally, a monumentally stupid woman who knows so little about so much that she doesn´t even try to hide it.

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district.

Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City.

If Washington, D.C. were a better place, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe would be swiftly run out of town. He was fired last year for lying to the FBI’s inspector general at least four times regarding serious questions about multiple abuses that occurred while McCabe sat in a powerful and unelected office. These abuses included working with former FBI director James Comey to set up former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus for obstruction charges, slow-walking and sabotaging the investigation of yet unseen Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer just before the 2016 election,

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016.
