Hilarious: Andrea Mitchell asks
historian to debunk a Trump claim
and gets an unpleasant surprise

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

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.

´Can´t anybody here play this

Casey Stengel would have spotted this bogus play, the so-called Google congressional hearing, from the cheap seats. "Can´t anybody here play this game?" the famous baseball manager would have asked the Republicans hemming and hawing and ignoring their way through the biggest existential threat to conservatives ever. Apparently not, Casey. The scene was the House Judiciary Committee. Waiting to testify was the CEO of Google, where for at least the last five years, conservatives have been attacked, marginalized, removed, defamed, harassed, and demonetized – all to the sounds of glee if not ecstasy from purple-haired Google engineers.

Trump sprang three traps on
Pelosi and Schumer yesterday

President Trump clearly shocked House Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer yesterday with his televising of the Oval Office sit-down over his demand for $5 billion funding for border security (snip) Trump’s second trap is his bold declaration of ownership of any “government shutdown.” Democrats have convinced themselves that what is called a “shutdown,” but really means furloughing non-essential federal workers, is a tragedy, a scar on the nation’s psyche. The fact that federal workers are now a major and solid constituency for Democrats skews their perception of the public’s concern

Which is worse: candidate, businessman, and then still private citizen Donald Trump using his own money to make what Hillary Clinton might call "bimbo eruptions" go away to protect his brand and himself from personal embarrassment, or Congress using taxpayer money in a slush fund to pay off those sexually harassed by sitting officeholders? (snip) We also know that none of the beneficiaries of this slush fund has been threatened with indictment and incarceration for campaign finance violations since suppressing such information, as Rep. Nadler puts it, amounts to committing a fraud on the American people using their own money.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez goes

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is upset that people don’t appreciate her intelligence and depth. It turns out that people notice when she says stupid things, such as nattering on about the “three chambers of government” or not understanding that Pentagon accounting errors don’t yield a pot of money available for her pet scheme of “Medicare for all.” Preparing to become a solon in the House of Representatives is not at all like being a hot chick working her previous occupation of bartending, where pretty much anything she said was eagerly appreciated by her male customers.

Trump scrapping the bad stuff
in Obamacare, bit by bit
American Thinker, by Monica Showalter    Original Article

Obamacare is a hydra-headed nightmare monster - with high costs that only go higher, irrelevant services, limited choices, one-size-fits-all offerings, a nasty subsidy system that doubles as an involuntary data-mining operation, bad security, endless paperwork, an incredibly capricious cost structure, all topped off with a hipster-leftist nomenklatura of entrenched Obamacare industry millionaires that loves robbing you blind. (snip) But the Trump administration itself has been helpful in getting rid of the nightmare in increments, starting with its suspension of the detested fines for ignoring the ´individual mandate.´

Another possible government shutdown showdown just ahead of Christmas, along with news of massive protests in France against unfair and unsustainable tax policies, has comments sections on conservative sites buzzing with calls to just "shut it down" if funding for the border wall is not included in the budget. Candidate Trump´s "forgotten" men and women are getting antsy.

In the normal course of events, one could understand the hundreds of “I don’t knows” and “I don’t recalls” former FBI Director James Comey during Friday’s testimony.

Once again, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is demonstrating her shaky understanding of the job she was elected to do in what she called one of the “three chambers of government.” Yesterday, she was obviously ticked off when Donald Trump, Jr sent out a meme (snip) [tweet] I have noticed that Junior here has a habit of posting nonsense about me whenever the Mueller investigation heats up.

Newly minted Dem congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez once more validated Mark Twain’s (Puddin’head Wilson) quip, “Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.” Numerous reports have accompanied O-C’s tweet whereby she will pay her interns $15 an hour.

Jerome Corsi Challenges Robert Mueller
American Thinker, by Jonathan Moseley    Original Article

After weeks of talking with Special Counsel Robert Mueller about Donald Trump´s supposed collusion with Russia, Dr. Jerome Corsi instead filed his own criminal complaint through attorney and former federal prosecutor Larry Klayman on December 3, 2018. We should remember that Klayman already got the prosecution of Cliven Bundy´s family and associates thrown out for similar prosecutorial misconduct, working in support of the Bundys´ excellent Nevada lawyers as legal strategist. Misconduct by the once-great Department of Justice is all too common. The unethical prosecution of former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens stole a U.S. Senate election from the Republicans in 2008

The nation’s farewell to its forty-first president continues with yet another day of ceremonial spectacle, following the state funeral and a national day of mourning that saw the stock exchanges and Postal Service shutting down. The entire process has been incredibly well thought-through featuring impressive visual production values reinforcing the message that we are saying farewell to a giant among presidents.

Bush’s mortal remains to his final resting place at his presidential library at Texas A&M University in College Station.

In contrast to the politeness of everyone else, Hillary Clinton refused to acknowledge the arrival and greeting of President and Mrs. Trump as they joined the other presidents sitting in the front row of the George H.W. Bush funeral at the National Cathedral. President Trump leaned over his wife to shake hands with President and Mrs. Obama, who graciously reciprocated. Bill Clinton, sitting on the other side of Michelle Obama, did not reach out to shake hands, but at least looked in the direction of President Trump. But not Hillary Clinton.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting.

President Donald Trump, future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer erupted in an on-camera fight in the Oval Office over border wall funding on Tuesday.

In response, Trump said he would shut down the government and take responsibility for it if they failed to include additional wall funding.
