I nominate for must read. Col. West is an American treasure.

FTA:"There is nothing trendy, cool, or desirable about socialism. And those who advocate it are, well, let me be blunt, lying, deceptive jackasses – the symbol of the Democratic Party."

Well, almost on target. Broaden this to include the GOPe wing of the UniParty that enables the Deomcrat wing drive toward socialism, and you hit the mark.

How do you really feel about socialism, Mr. West? /sarcasm

I liked this one:
“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don´t need it and hell where they already have it.” – President Ronald Reagan

Socialism sounds much better in the hallowed halls of academia, than it has ever turned out in practice. (If I´m wrong, PLEASE point out a shining example of a successful experiment in socialism, either current or historical.)

Capitalism rewards success, punishes failure. Socialism rewards failure, punishes success. Failure is hard work, and we will always have those that favor socialism, thinking they should be rewarded for their effort, not their production.

They use to call it Hope and Change. And they will again, unless the charade of "caring about helping people" is exposed once and for all.

Allen West´s article is a definite MUST READ! As far as quotes, I believe Sir Winston Churchill´s and British PM (Lady) Margaret Thatcher´s quotes are accurate. Although former President Ronald Reagan is one of my heroes, his quote is not valid. Since Socialism is truly a HERESY, and therefore no evil or falsehood would ever exist in heaven, he´s mistaken, albeit sincere. And hopefully all THREE are in heaven enjoying God´s Beatific Vision! Amen.

We have given them grades for “trying” and trophies for showing up. Why shouldn’t they “the blessed ones” get rich by just walking in and announcing I am here.

San Francisco Power Outage

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — A massive power outage hit downtown San Francisco Friday morning, leaving thousands without power, closing a BART station, and affecting traffic signals in the area. Pacific Gas & Electric officials say that "crews are working safely and as quickly as possible to restore power," but they have yet to report an official time that power will be restored. PG&E Spokeswoman Tamar Sarkissian said about 90,000 PG&E customers were affected at one point. She did not know the cause of the outage or when it would be resolved. As of 11:45 a.m., PG&E has reported that power

Obama Injects Himself
Into French Election

Remember when President Obama urged the British to vote to stay in the European Union, and they completely ignored him? He apparently hasn’t learned to stay out of European races. A new report confirms that Obama, now a private citizen, called French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron, from the centrist party En Marche!, just three days before the contest begins. The progressive candidate was so excited about the call that he filmed it.

Lawyers for Juan Manuel Montes, the 23 year-old DACA recipient deported by the Department of Homeland Security, say they have full faith in their client´s story. But in a conference call with reporters Thursday, Montes´ legal team — he is suing DHS for documents relating to his case — did not provide evidence to corroborate Montes´ claim that Border Patrol agents picked him up for no reason in Calexico, Calif., on Feb. 17 and summarily deported him. "My team and I have had many, many conversations with Juan Manuel, and he is adamant about two things," Karen Tumlin, legal director

Trump Adviser’s Visit to Moscow
Got the F.B.I.’s Attention

Posted By: Drive- 4/20/2017 7:57:09     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — Ever since F.B.I. investigators discovered in 2013 that a Russian spy was trying to recruit an American businessman named Carter Page, the bureau maintained an occasional interest in Mr. Page. So when he became a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign last year and gave a Russia-friendly speech at a prestigious Moscow institute, it soon caught the bureau’s attention. That trip last July was a catalyst for the F.B.I. investigation into connections between Russia and President Trump’s campaign, according to current and former law enforcement and intelligence officials. It is unclear exactly what about Mr. Page’s visit drew the

Bill O’Reilly is done at Fox News. The reign of the most-watched host on the right-wing cable news network is coming to an end after two full decades, brought down by a perfect storm of newly unearthed sexual-harassment accusations, a massive advertiser boycott, and the absence of Roger Ailes, a fellow serial harasser of women, to protect him. 21st Century Fox confirmed the end of O’Reilly’s tenure in a Wednesday statement: “After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel.” Even though this latest

One of the (many) things that makes the Trump presidency so hard to read is that the chapters are all out of order. Traditionally, during the transition period, presidents-elect are out of the limelight. But while Barack Obama was still in the White House, Donald Trump announced “deals” and appointments that made it seem as if he were already in office, hitting the ground running to Make America Great Again. On the entirely subjective calculus of wins, he probably had more before his inauguration than any president. Conversely, the first 100 days are supposed to be a time of big domestic legislative

   

 

  


 
‘Political Malpractice’: Obama Couldn’t Understand
Clinton’s Handling Of Her Email Fiasco

If you thought Hillary Clinton’s handling of her email fiasco was puzzling, you’re not alone. Even President Obama was befuddled by the way his former adversary handled the situation, noting that it reminded him of how he beat her in the 2008 primaries. In the new book by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Sidewire’s Jonathan Allen, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” released today details what should have been a winnable election for the career politician that turned into an abject nightmare over largely avoidable mistakes. For starters, the book details how Obama was at a loss for why Clinton, who

There´s been a lot of confusion and argument over the deportation of Juan Manuel Montes, a 23 year-old Mexican-born man who entered the United States illegally as a child but received legal protection under President Obama´s DACA program. A story in USA Today Tuesday — headline "First protected DREAMer is deported under Trump" — reported that "Federal agents ignored President Trump´s pledge to protect from deportation undocumented immigrants brought into the United States as children by sending a young man back to his native Mexico." The paper reported that Montes had spent the evening of February 17 with his girlfriend in

Report: Massive ESPN Layoffs, Contract Buyouts
Expected to Hit Over the Next Month
Breitbart, by Dylan Gwinn    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/19/2017 8:20:17     Post Reply
The long-reported layoffs at ESPN will reportedly take place over the next month. That, according to sports media reporter Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated. What hadn’t been rumored or reported, until now, is that ESPN will look to actually buy out some talent currently under contract. That represents a sharp departure from past ESPN policy. The Bristol-based sports giant typically refrains from buyouts, because like many companies they don’t see the sense in paying someone to not work. The decision to depart from that way of doing business suggests that ESPN wants to have the layoffs and the massive talent shake-up

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) called former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton´s "I´m with her" slogan "phony," according to a new book. In "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton´s Doomed Campaign," The Hill´s Amie Parnes and Sidewire´s Jonathan Allen write that members of the Clinton campaign reached out to Sanders aides in late September to share a script of an ad they wanted the Vermont senator to record. In the ad, Sanders would tout Clinton for her education, healthcare and minimum wage proposals. And he would talk about how then-Republican nominee Donald Trump was wrong about climate change and the economy. At the end of the

The CEO of United Airlines says no one will be fired over the dragging of a man off a plane — including himself. CEO Oscar Munoz said Tuesday that he takes full responsibility "for making this right," and he promised more details later this month after United finishes a review of its policies on overbooked flights. Company executives said it´s too soon to know if the incident is hurting ticket sales. United has been pummeled on social media — #BoycottUnited is a popular hashtag — and late-night television. Through Tuesday afternoon, its shares had fallen 4.3 percent since Flight 3411, wiping out

The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia?

A review of Donald Trump´s business career would lead one to say that he has always over-promised and under-delivered. Whether his long list of bankruptcies in the ever-profitable casino business, the failures of his "university,´ steak, vodka or clothing lines, there has been a history of putting himself first, while ignoring the needs of his constituents. We may be seeing that play out in his approach to government, as well. As in business, Trump has a constituency of one … himself … just ask his stock and bond investors, his suppliers, contractors, laborers, or even his customers. Unlike Trump, they rarely,

American Airlines suspended a flight attendant after an altercation on Friday in which the attendant took a stroller from a woman traveling with two young children and then argued with other passengers. The episode was captured, in part, on video. The encounter, at San Francisco International Airport, occurred while the woman was boarding a Texas-bound flight. The attendant, whose name was not released by the airline, grabbed the stroller from the woman, who was carrying 15-month-old twins, a passenger who was nearby said.

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

WASHINGTON — The day before he upended the 2016 election, James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, summoned agents and lawyers to his conference room. They had been debating all day, and it was time for a decision. Mr. Comey’s plan was to tell Congress that the F.B.I. had received new evidence and was reopening its investigation into Hillary Clinton, the presidential front-runner. The move would violate the policies of an agency that does not reveal its investigations or do anything that may influence an election. But Mr. Comey had declared the case closed, and he believed

The September 2016 article in Politico championing Hillary Clinton’s use of "data analytics" now looks—how shall we put it?—rather premature. Politico swooned that computer algorithms "underlie nearly all of the Clinton campaign´s most important strategic decisions." Computer guru Elan Kriegel had crunched the numbers for campaign manager Robby Mook, allowing Team Clinton to precisely target her potential voters and thus not waste one dime on appealing to the deplorables. "Clintonites saw it as their secret weapon in building an insurmountable delegate lead over Bernie Sanders," Politico reported. And come the general election the Clintonistas were downright giddy about the edge Big Data

This week’s edition of Time Magazine named former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to its list of the 100 Most Influential People. The list breaks down the chosen 100 into five categories: Pioneers, Artists, Leaders, Titans, and Icons. Kaepernick appears in the Icons group. In the Time Magazine profile, former SF 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh praised the controversial quarterback’s protest last year of the Star Spangled Banner, “when he boldly and courageously confronted perceived inequalities in our social-justice system by refusing to stand for the national anthem.” Harbaugh made no mention of Kaepernick’s penchant for wearing socks denigrating law

Former President Barack Obama may not be making an endorsement in France´s upcoming presidential election, but his former deputy national security adviser is warning that a win for right-wing leader Marine Le Pen would be "devastating." "A Le Pen victory would be devastating to any mainstream definition of US interests and values since WWII," Ben Rhodes said in a tweet Saturday. (Tweet) Rhodes´ warning is quite a bit more drastic than the measured statement former President Barack Obama´s spokesman put out last week about his conversation with another French candidate, Emmanuel Macron.

When we study racial inequality, we tend to consider factors that affect people while they are awake. Differential access to safe neighborhoods with good schools, decent jobs and unbalanced treatment by police and the courts surely have much to do with the stubborn disparities in wealth and well-being among blacks and whites, in particular. Yet it may be just as important to consider what happens when we’re asleep. Race shapes our sleep, a relationship that has surprising roots deep in our national past. African Americans suffer from a “sleep gap”: Fewer black people are able to sleep for the recommended

The Trump administration put nine of the country’s top sanctuary cities on notice Friday that they could soon have to give up some federal funds unless they can prove they are no longer thwarting Homeland Security’s efforts to deport illegal immigrants. The entire state of California is being targeted, as are the cities of New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Cook County in Illinois and Miami-Dade County in Florida round out the list. In letters to each of the nine jurisdictions the Justice Department said they signed documents last year, when they applied for Byrne
