The left and its echo chamber are convinced they are taking out Trump. It´s their "narrative" and they actually believe their own PR. They don’t see how they have driven themselves over the edge of reason and can no longer convince others. The only people they have convinced are themselves -- of their own righteousness. And they actually believe they have succeeded. Again. This echo chamber once held great power. They used to be able to form "narratives," ( activist storylines to decide and interpret news), persuade the powerful, and terrorize the right. They could make most Republicans quake just
The left is most dangerous in their current mode.Trump is holding on against the never ending spew of hate headed his way.We have a very ruffled society right now and it´s going to get worse with Obama/Soros´s shadow government.
President Trump yesterday was like a "yuge" orange housecat who had cornered himself a media mouse. After batting it around for a bit he tossed it high in the air and bit its head off on the way down. They don´t know what hit them and likely never will.
Truth has a way of slapping you in the face especially if you are dumb enough to believe your own lies. I can´t remember in my lifetime a President telling the media in a very calm but determined manner and to their faces that they are dishonest. It was a beautiful thing to behold. It was not an angry rant either. He was funny and warm, sort of like a concerned parent when they are trying to teach their child the error of his ways. The media, of course, had the expected meltdown and they will be in sanctimonious whine mode all weekend. I kept thinking of Andrew Breitbart. Can you imagine his reaction. Just warms the heart, doesn´t it?
Serious news item about how Trump "touts false information about the election". If you go through it patiently it turns our he claimed to have earned 306 Electoral votes (which he did) but two electors defected and the actual number cast was 304! Really?? If that is all you have to say, Trump is treating you far better than you deserve.
FTA: "More than anyone else, he will be the key to rooting out the new foe we are calling the deep state. They will not stand. They will lose, because Sessions will ferret out the wrongdoers, and follow the right principles until they are in place."
Trump has dared to pull back the curtain from behind which the awesomely fear-inducing voice has been booming and finally revealed that the Wizard of Oz was really just an Oompa Loompa with a voice (and news) synthesizer. Not so scary anymore. Should be lesson for all the RINO scarecrows, tin men, and cowardly lions to remember.
Great article, but I would like to add one more thing to it - the left is destroying itself with its criminal and hysterical behavior. Moderate democrats are disgusted with the riots, the arson, the beatings and the destruction. Just as they were with Illary´s lies and cheating. More and more of them will make a right turn in the next couple of years.
I admit there were moments I loved... laughed out loud, cringed, and clapped! All the emotions of Trump. He is unique in that he does misspeak, but its usually about something that doesnt really matter except to the "ever looking for mistakes" media.
This whole Russia focus is to try to prove to anybody that "See! They had talks.. the campaign talked to Russians!! Russia tried to interfere in our election by posted emails from Podesta" oh wait... can´t remind people of that, now can we? I sure wish Trump would have made that point clearer... sometimes his mind goes faster than the mouth can finish it.
The media still cant accept that the people didnt want Hillary. And Trump was our choice. And the reason he is not polished in front of the public doesn´t matter. We want him to do what he said he would do. And take no prisoners in the media.
Trump was enjoying himself hugely/bigly/big-league yesterday. He is not a politician in any conventional sense, but he calls it as he sees it.
All the deferential Washington elites of both parties knew the media game of Democrat=Good, Republicans=Bad. They like being invited to each other´s cocktail parties. Well, The Donald has upended the table with all the food and drinks on it. Get used to it, kids!
The Trump voter is still engaged. Not only are they engaged, they are doubly thrilled that he isn’t backing down to these people. They aren’t so much seeing the bumps in the road or the obstacles the left is throwing out, they are just seeing an administration that is fighting for them, and it energizes their own determination to fight, too. Because the Trump administration is serious about its promises, it is earning the loyalty of those who have supported them. This is a movement of principle, and the principles stood for are being followed, they are being implemented.
President Trump isn´t George Bush taking it on chin and accepting it. There´s no reaching across the aisle and ´sharing power´. The left has been trounced with a victory and their propaganda machine needs a lesson in ´losership´. Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions need to find the ´gators in the swamp and take them out.
My only regret is that Trump is confirming he pays attention to their rubbish.
Still, he´s holding all the cards. Running a news operation is a very expensive endeavor. The reporters care about their jobs first, ratings second and the truth is somewhere far down the line. By refusing to observe the media pecking order he´s driving them bonkers and costing them money.
Roll the tape, Mr. Snerdley---"Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord...He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored...He hath loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword...His truth is marching on...Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on..."
Wow! Trump’s pressor was a thing of beauty as he rammed the truth up the rear ends of his mostly arrogant and self-absorbed audience. I’ll have to keep a copy of it just to cheer myself up on bad days.
President Trump will have to root out "out-of-control leftists embedded deep in the heart of our intelligence agencies,and bureaucracies" relentlessly. The CIA, NSA, FBI, DoS, DoJ, are replete with anti-American moles. But our President has half of the people on his side. Yesterday I found out one can still contribute directly to the Trump-Pence campaign website. I cannot wait for Saturday´s rally in Florida.
Another point, at the fabulous press conference our President started listing all the bad things he inherited from Barack Hussein Obanana. This will put our Cultural Marxist compatriots in the defensive. Obama bad will work because he really is not popular, just that Americans do not want to say they dislike a half-black. Focusing on Obama himself will help defuse the deep state shadow government of the far left.
Not is President Trump maintaining his base but I firmly believe that more and more of the blue collar working are moving to his side. And come 2020 his vote tally will be much larger that it was last year. The dims simply can´t believe that this country is not full of socialists/communists.
Love the list near the end of the article re the promised wonders to come as President Trump and his administration move forward.
In this excellent article, Mr. David Prentice is astute in observing that: “This is a movement of principle, and the principles stood for are being followed, they are being implemented.”
It is a continuing stalwart movement, indeed, of President Trump and of all of his enthusiastic supporters - and the Left will be left behind, tumbling together, howling, growling, and clawing at their own.
California Gov. Jerry Brown urged lawmakers to provide the funds needed to increase flood protection following the Orville dam fracture. Following heavy winter rains in the state, Brown said $437 million is needed for flood-related projects. During a press conference in Sacramento on Friday, he asked lawmakers in Washington to approve $387 million in water bond money, with the remaining $50 million coming from existing general fund money. "The recent storms have had a real impact," he said. "We´ve got dam spillways eroding. We´ve got roadways crumbling. We have aging infrastructure and it´s maxed out." The $387 million would be
Environmental Protection Agency employees used their government purchase cards to spend $14,985 on fitness memberships, according to an audit by the inspector general of the agency. With the goal of assessing the risk of illegal, improper, and erroneous purchases made on the EPA´s purchase card, the auditors evaluated 18 transactions totaling $48,345 and found that none of them complied with any of the internal controls that were tested. Some of these controls require that officials give approval, that records be properly placed in the vendor´s banking system, and that transactions be reviewed by the card holder within 10 days of posting.
President Trump´s first address to Congress will consume lawmakers early next week but won´t stop Republicans from picking up their agenda after a week off, which includes confirming more of Trump´s Cabinet in the Senate and rolling back Obama-era regulations in the House. Trump is scheduled to address a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, a day after the Senate is expected to confirm his Commerce secretary pick, Wilbur Ross. Trump will "present his vision to Congress and the American people," White House press secretary Sean Spicer said. Regulatory reform is high on Trump´s list. On Friday the president signed
SAN DIEGO — U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Friday that it plans to start awarding contracts by mid-April for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico, signaling that he is aggressively pursuing plans to erect “a great wall” along the 2,000-mile border. The agency said it will request bids on or around March 6 and that companies would have to submit “concept papers” to design and build prototypes by March 10, according to a website for federal contractors. The field of candidates will be narrowed by March 20 and finalists must submit offers with their proposed costs by
“There’s no Elmer’s Glue to be found anywhere on Oahu,” my eleven-year-old granddaughter announced dramatically as we got into the car at Honolulu airport last Sunday. Still groggy from the ten-hour flight across so many time zones and with my ears still stopped up, I thought I had misheard her. Asking for some explanation, I got a very rapid paced explanation. Every sixth grader on the island is making slime, a concoction composed of Elmer’s Glue, cornstarch, and some secret ingredients known only to very aware eleven-year-olds and which I’ve already forgotten. The run on glue was so substantial that
At least 28 people have been injured when a truck plowed into party-goers at a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans. The crash happened at the corner of Orleans and N. Carrollton avenues at around 6.45pm during the Endymion Parade. NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison said there is no evidence to suspect this is terrorism and that the 26-year-old driver appeared ´highly intoxicated´. Victims´ ages range from age four to their early forties, according to the New Orleans Advocate. In total, 21 were taken to seven different hospitals throughout the city and five are in critical condition. Seven declined treatment. Valerie, a
(Video) LIMON - If you fly in or out of Denver soon, you might spot what we’re pretty sure is the state’s largest political sign. Frustrated at some of the negativity coming from opponents of President Donald Trump, rancher Doug Koehn hopped on his plow and carved the word “TRUMP” in big block letters into his field. “The letters are 800 feet wide and approximately 800 feet long,” Koehn said. “A mile-long Trump.” You can’t really read it from ground level. The first time Koehn saw the whole thing in one frame was when 9NEWS showed up with a drone to
In the last few years, more than 230 American colleges and universities — 143 of them lavishly funded by taxpayers — have launched bias reporting systems encouraging students to report each other for incidents of offensive speech and other kinds of “bias.” The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) published an exhaustive survey of such speech-chilling bias reporting systems earlier this month. The speech and conduct of some 2.84 million students in the United States are subject to evaluation under bias reporting systems, according to the civil rights group. The personnel who investigate student speech — usually called some
They say after a drinks, the truth always comes out. Not with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, as all he needs is a latino audience and a camera. The television anchor let it be known who he thinks the United States really “belongs to” at the Univision Music Awards. (Video) From NewsBusters: Further ramping up his open opposition to President Trump’s immigration law enforcement policies, Univision anchor Jorge Ramos has let loose with an outrageous tirade that could best be described as equal parts nationalistic identity politics, racially-driven demagoguery, and yet another instance of the irresponsible conflation of legal and illegal immigration.
Former Senator Barbara Boxer defended Meryl Streep’s controversial, politically-charged Golden Globes acceptance speech and urged Democratic politicians to follow her lead during CAA’s “Take Action Day” summit on Thursday. Boxer — who just signed on as a client at CAA after leaving the Senate last year — was one of several politicians and progressive leaders taking part in what the Hollywood mega-agency billed a “non-partisan” political summit for clients and staff. “I don’t think she talks down to anybody,” Boxer said of Streep during a conversation with CAA agent Michael Kives, according to Deadline. “I don’t think it’s up to
Former President Obama and other top Democrats are focusing efforts on state-level races and ending the reconfiguring of voting districts through the politically-laden process known as gerrymandering -- a combined effort to end “Trump-ism” and help their party regain control of Congress and legislatures across the country. Obama indicated before leaving the White House last fall that his short-term, post-presidency focus will be on General Assembly races and redistricting after the 2020 Census. And 2016 presidential candidate former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has become the most recent high-profile Democrat to take up the cause. “America needs non-partisan redistricting commissions,” O’Malley said
Rutgers University spent nearly $1.5million on its 2016 commencement ceremony because of that year´s keynote speaker, then-President Barack Obama. The hefty price tag is $523,000 more than it cost the university the year before, when its commencement speaker was Bill Nye ´The Science Guy,´ according to NJ Advance Media. A final accounting by the university found that most of the money was spent on the extensive security measures needed to accommodate the president as well as the record crowd that witnessed the event at the school´s football stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey. The university used the funds to pay for
President Donald Trump has announced that he will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Dinner this year in a shocking break with tradition. ´I will not be attending the White House Correspondents´ Association dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!´ Trump tweeted on Saturday afternoon. His announcement comes amid growing tensions between his administration and media outlets. Trump attended the dinner in 2011 with his wife Melania where he was repeatedly mocked by then-president Barack Obama. He skipped the dinner in 2016 during the presidential campaign where Obama again took aim at the then-candidate, saying: ´I´m a little
An upbeat Hillary Clinton popped back into the political spotlight Friday with a three-minute address to Democrats, applauding them for being the ´resistance´ against President Donald Trump. She urged her party to ´keep fighting and keep the faith,´ while adding, ´I´ll be there right with you every step of the way.´ Clinton´s message was released in conjunction with the Democrats´ meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, where they´ll decide new Democratic National Committee leadership tomorrow. But Clinton´s frequent forays back into the limelight suggest she could still write another political chapter post-2016. She´s called out the new president several times on Twitter, writing simply ´3-0´
A transgender advocate struggled to answer simple questions about the science of gender identity in a discussion about former President Obama’s transgender bathroom decree Thursday on Tucker Carlson Tonight. “Let’s move from the politics to the science,” Carlson said to Zac Petkanas, Democratic National Committee senior advisor, launching into a series of questions about the implications of allowing people to determine their sex. “There’s no biological anchor to sex anymore. It’s all determined by the individual,” he said. “So my obvious question for you is, how do I know if a person’s male or female? Is there some absolute standard people
WASHINGTON — Democrats have invited immigrants and foreigners to President Donald Trump´s first address to Congress in an effort to put a face on those who could be hurt by the Republican´s policies. Lawmakers typically get one guest ticket apiece for presidential addresses, as they will for Tuesday´s prime-time speech, and the invites often go to family, friends or someone from back home. To send a message to Trump, Democrats have invited the Iraqi-American doctor who discovered elevated levels of lead in the blood of many children living in Flint, Michigan; a Pakistani-born doctor who delivers critical care to patients
The White House blocked a number of news outlets from covering spokesman Sean Spicer’s question-and-answer session on Friday afternoon. Spicer decided to hold an off-camera “gaggle” with reporters inside his West Wing office instead of the traditional on-camera briefing in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room. Among the outlets not permitted to cover the gaggle were news organizations President Trump has singled out for criticism, including CNN. The New York Times, The Hill, Politico, BuzzFeed, the Daily Mail, BBC, the Los Angeles Times and the New York Daily News were among the other news organizations not permitted to attend.
Pope Francis continues to argue for two interrelated points that, while seemingly humane, compromise Western nations and expose their citizens to danger. He reiterated his first point earlier this month when he said, “I appeal not to create walls but to build bridges.” Francis has made this appeal frequently, both figuratively (when imploring Western nations not to close their doors against more incoming Muslim migrants), and literally—including by characterizing Donald Trump’s proposal to build a U.S.-Mexico wall as “not Christian.” Francis reiterated his second point a few days ago when he said, “Muslim terrorism does not
In his press conference last week, in which President Trump ranted and raved that he wasn´t ranting and raving, he answered a question about his wife, Melania. "That´s what I call a very nice question," he said, apparently relieved to stop talking about his own policies, before saying the first lady feels very strongly about "women´s issues" and "women´s difficulties." Trump didn´t specify what these "issues" and "difficulties" might be. One presumes that, despite the phrasing, he probably meant things like equal pay and health care, and not what old men usually mean when they cryptically speak about our "difficulties."
(Video) - Could France elect Barack Obama president? Not really -- but that´s not stopping the organizers of Obama17, a guerrilla campaign trying to entice the former U.S. president to head to Paris. "It´s totally crazy, but the cool thing is that once you get past that, you start thinking that maybe it´s possible. Who cares that he´s not French? He´s Barack Obama," one of the campaign organizers told CNN. They´ve launched a website and they put up 500 posters of Obama around Paris last weekend, said the organizer. He asked to be identified only as Antoine. They're hoping to get 1 million people to sign a petition urging Obama to
On the grassy slope of a fjord near the southernmost tip of Greenland stand the ruins of a church built by Viking settlers more than a century before Columbus sailed to the Americas. The thick granite-block walls remain intact, as do the 20-foot-high gables. The wooden roof, rafters and doors collapsed and rotted away long ago. Now sheep come and go at will, munching wild thyme where devout Norse Christian converts once knelt in prayer. The Vikings called this fjord Hvalsey, which means “Whale Island” in Old Norse. It was here that Sigrid Bjornsdottir wed Thorstein Olafsson on Sunday, September
Tonight is the big night: all across the country, witches will gather to light candles and mutter incantations in hopes of evicting President Trump from the White House: "Men and women from around the world are planning to gather and cast a spell at midnight that will stop President Trump from doing harm while also possibly banishing him from office." (Snip) The idea is that these witchcraft events will continue until Trump is “driven from office.” There is a chant, too. It begins: Hear me, oh spirits / Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air / Heavenly hosts / Demons of the infernal
Former NAACP branch president Rachel Dolezal, who lied about being black but still identifies as black, is now jobless, living on food stamps and expects to lose her home next month. “There’s no protected class for me,” the former NAACP branch president told The Guardian. “I’m this generic, ambiguous scapegoat for white people to call me a race traitor and take out their hostility on. And I’m a target for anger and pain about white people from the black community. It’s like I am the worst of all these worlds.” Dolezal has applied for over 100 jobs, but has received no offers,
Barbara Pierce Bush, daughter of former President George W. Bush, is slated to deliver the keynote address at a Planned Parenthood fundraiser in Fort Worth, Texas, next week. Barbara Bush has previously expressed her support for abortion, a procedure that the government-subsidized healthcare group is well-known for providing to women. Next Wednesday, she will rally financial support for the abortion provider at its annual luncheon. Barbara Bush is no newcomer to health issues. The youngest of the former Republican president´s two daughters is CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps.
