Time for the GOP to teach
the Democrats a scandal lesson

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 8/1/2017 8:37:07 AM

lWhy do Republicans in DC act like a battered spouse, allowing Democrats to continually impugn their motives and decency? And why do they so often surrender control of the institutions of the state to Democrats, even when they are in the clear minority, as the donkeys are now? Through the sort of passivity and weak-mindedness that leads bruised women to claim that they fell down the stairs, Republicans let themselves be bamboozled into accepting, via recusal, the definition of the first period (at least) of the Trump presidency as an age of scandal. Against all odds the Democrats managed to

And the lesson should be taught by indicting, handcuffing, jailing, trying, convicting, sentencing, and imprisoning the dims responsible. Some judges will be very busy for a long long time.

Seems to me that the GOP would rather see Trump gone and then return to their back seat role in government. The Repubs have become too comfortable in just being re-elected and enjoying the perks of office without doing the work their constituents want done. Try as he might, President Trump can´t do it all by himself.

Well, Thomas, a thinking man would consider that the pubbies that act that way are dirty and the leftards have the crimnal evidence, so the pubbies are dancing to the leftard´s tune.

The best "defense" is a good offense.

The DOJ should appoint a special prosecutor, of "high caliber," to investigate the serious crimes of the Obama administration, specifically the use of intelligence services and other agencies (IRS) to silence and harass political opponents, as well as obstruction of justice and the handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation/"matter."

You might want to add the DWS/Congressional IT scandal, especially when it looks like some of those "salaries" were payoffs to phantom or non-working "employees," many of which were family members of the recently arrested perp.

Staff it with Republican donor lawyers and limit its budget to the same amount being spent by Mueller and his Hillary/Obama donor lawyer cabal. Since Mueller has about a month head start, that should be pretty easy to track.

My bet is that Democrats will insist that Mueller close up shop by the end of the day.

And what negative will occur? Maybe CNN, MSNBC, the networks, the NY Times, Washington Post and Democrat congressional folks will say bad things about us?

Heck, they already do that.

Why do Republicans in DC act like a battered spouse, allowing Democrats to continually impugn their motives and decency? Simple answer: It´s in their best interests.

Democrats lust for power, making the world right by making everything in society "wrong" and bullying people into submission, hounded by media and eventually the social environment.

Republicans don´t want power. They don´t want to even take responsibility. They are today "compassionate conservatives" and are much happier in the minority where there are no expectations put on them. They want people to like them, to avoid conflict and put smiles on faces with feel good stuff that is "good". At their core there is no core. The Obamacare fiasco clearly illustrates that.

Ever met a battered spouse? We had one next door for a while.
She stayed with the twerp because she loved him.
He could hurt her as much as he wanted.
Remember: Sen Graham, Sen McCain, Sen Murkowski, Sen Collins, and others, are not Republicans. They are RINOs. They love the adoring press they receive. Not for them the endless anal exams given to Trump and his ilk. No sir. They want to be loved.
These RINOs follow the time-honored tradition: to get along, you have to go along. Of course they lie to their voters. But that is OK. Politicians lie; it is tradition. And they get re-elected, which proves that they were right all along.
Kind of makes you gag, doesn´t it?

The Trump Admin has to do this. The Republicans are in on the fake accusations so they won´t help. Trump has to imprison the leakers, the liars, and the fabricators. Oh, and true up the vote.

I have thought since Judge Roberts voted to insure Obamcare would become law that Obama and the Dems had the goods on everyone in any position to vote. It would seem blackmail is a wonderful thing for the Dems.

Hardly. Frankly, it´s time both sides of the isle remember We the People they were elected to represent.

No one campaigns and says "Soon as I get to DC and line up some lobbyist and special interest money or join a discriminating caucus, I won´t care about you or my lies and promises" They certainly don´t say "I am never leaving this gravy train"

Lead, follow, or get out of the way and resign.

Has the Deep State Won?

The title of this column reflects the first thought I had on the news of Steve Bannon´s resignation last Friday as President Trump´s strategic advisor. Although I do not know Mr. Bannon personally, the impression I have gotten from reading biographies of him, as well as my knowledge of his enunciated beliefs, his patriotism, and the pivotal role he played in galvanizing Donald Trump´s presidential campaign, caused me to believe that he was the one individual with the intellectual firepower, intestinal fortitude, and strategic vision to check the unchecked growth of our government.

CNN hit a new low – and that‘s saying a lot – Tuesday night in its coverage of President Trump’s speech in Phoenix. The former news channel is now little more than a propaganda mouthpiece for the Deep State. On Tuesday, it used a half dozen anti-Trump panelists, with no one representing a counter view, to introduce a new fake news meme: Not only is the 45th POTUS a racist and a Nazi-sympathizer but an imminent national security threat to the United States. To reinforce this spin, CNN’s Don Lemon, who outed himself as a Trump hater in an out of

When Will New Orleans Apologize
for the Italian Lynchings?
American Thinker, by Michael Bertolone    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 8/22/2017 9:22:53     Post Reply
The popular trend of taking down Confederate statues and the resulting controversy and violence was put on steroids by New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu. And now this tactic has predictably attracted mentally-disturbed white supremacists, Neo-Nazis, Antifa anarchists, and outright communists. However, Mayor Landrieu´s virtue signaling only goes so far. For example, when will the mayor issue a formal apology to Italian Americans, who were the victims of one of the largest lynchings in U.S. history in 1891? Of course he won´t, because that runs counter to his leftist narrative. Italians are now grouped in with "white oppressors," but in the late

Media contortions protect their

Something dramatic and important happened yesterday in Boston, but the mainstream provided a counter narrative to mask the shame of it all. The media violated the normal rules of the TV news game – if it bleeds it leads and find a victim -- in order to protect the sacred resistance narrative’s presumptive good guys. The real story of yesterday is that the Boston Police there advised a small crowd of free speech advocates – nary a white supremacist among the speakers – to stop the program early and [I paraphrase] “RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!” I am sure they said it

The first “shots” in our new civil war were fired after Charlottesville when many Democratic leaders claimed that they had the right to use physical force against anyone they didn’t like. While cowardly leftist leaders are trying to portray themselves as fighting Hitler they are really fighting anyone they don’t agree with. Remember that some Democrats said that Rep. Steve Scalise had it coming (snip) Facing a continued loss of power because their radical agenda is toxic to most Americans, the Democrat leadership -- which includes the MSM -- have decided that they have the right to physically attack anyone who

An internal civil war is tearing at the fabric of Fox News. The events of the past week have brought the long-simmering conflict closer to the surface. The legitimacy and viability of President Trump are under constant assault in the mainstream media as never before – and that is saying something. Fox News Channel executives, staff, and on air talent are taking sides. The future direction of the right-of-center, fair and balanced Fox News approach to presenting the news may well be in serious doubt.

Trump haters, intoxicated on the Nazi-KKK-Trump meme they are pushing, are unmasking themselves as hateful cynics. Yesterday, we saw Katy Tur of MSNBC metaphorically morph before our eyes into a vulture feasting for political carrion on the body of Charlottesville victim Heather Heyer. Interviewing Susan Bro, Heather Heyer’s mother, Tur asked five straight questions, trying to get the grieving mother to stop being scrupulously nonpolitical and give her something to use against Trump. How is this not exploitation? How is this not harassment?Tur feigns sympathy in ritualistic fashion, but also utters The Big Tell: “I don’t want to make this about

   

 

  


 
Take Down the Statues of Robert Byrd

President Trump had it right when, during his press conference on infrastructure he addressed the nonstop questions on Charlottesville, he asked if those obsessed with fears of white nationalism if they would also remove statues and monuments to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, both slaveowners, in addition to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

For the first time in American history there are multiple generations without an essential national cause. Every generation of American society since the nation’s founding up to the 1970’s has been swept up in one of three indispensible national movements -- the abolition of slavery, women’s suffrage and the elimination of government sanctioned racism.

They involve a major makeover of Fox News´s ailing prime-time schedule and a rising new star, Eboni K. Williams. After the dust settles, Williams, whose current show, The Fox News Specialists, looks as though it´s headed for oblivion after the coming shake-up, may wind up on the fast track to cable news stardom.On Monday, August 14, Matt Drudge let the cat out of the bag, as he occasionally

One thing overlooked in the uproar over Charlottesville is that this was, evidently, merely a dress rehearsal for a much larger-scale effort planned for this Autumn. Activist groups on the left evidently have something big in store for November 4th. The idea seems to be a revival of the 1971 “Days of Rage” – an effort to shut down the country as a whole to force a change in government. Thanks to one of many political mailing lists that AT finds itself on, we received an email last Sunday from the “Stop Mass Incarceration Network,” a little-known left-wing agitation group, one

The violence in Charlottesville, and the tearing down of Robert E. Lee’s statue there, and in Durham has made me angry and unhappy. (snip)Finally, we have a leader who fights back against the tyranny of the culture-changing socialists. Trump understands these actions are warm-ups. The progressives are tearing down Confederate statues and they are kicking and spitting on the memorials to the dead because they cannot yet kick and spit on President Trump and his voters.

Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested for disorderly conduct near the family’s famed compound on Cape Cod, according to police. Max Kennedy, the 52-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and a noise violation around 1 a.m. Sunday morning after reports of loud partying, Barnstable Police told the Boston Herald. His daughter Caroline, a 22-year-old California resident, was also arrested at a home a short walk from the main Kennedy compound.

In her most detailed public comments about what happened during the second presidential debate, Hillary Clinton said her “skin crawled” as Donald Trump loomed behind her on the stage in St. Louis in October. The comments are included in her new book, “What Happened,” which she called an attempt to “pull back the curtain” on her losing bid for the presidency. Some of the moments during the campaign, she said, “baffled” her. The book comes out Sept. 12, but audio excerpts, read by Clinton herself, were played on MSNBC on Wednesday morning.

I’ve been on the Barron Trump train from the start, but it’s about time the president’s son starts dressing the part. Barron is the youngest son of Donald Trump and the only child the president shares with Melania Trump. Time and time again Barron has proved that he’s just a normal 11-year-old kid, despite the fact that his dad is the President of the United States and he lives in the White House. One thing that isn’t normal though is the way he dresses when he joins his parents for a public appearance. Barron was returning to the White House from New

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged

As the face of CNN, Anderson Cooper makes a very good living as wealthy, privileged white man casting judgments of affiliation upon his political enemies. This includes taking a handful of idiotic white supremacists and declaring they represent millions of Republicans/conservatives, pro-America, Trump supporters, etc. And yet Mr. Cooper himself has a much closer affiliation to slavery than he likely wants his leftist viewers to know. As a descendant of the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest “old money” families in American history, Cooper is a direct descendant of big time slave owners. Cooper’s great-great grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt, owned several plantations,

The relationship between President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is so fractured the pair haven’t spoken in weeks, a new report said Tuesday. And McConnell has privately said he doesn’t know if Trump can even salvage his presidency, The New York Times reported. The feud has only deepened since the Senate was unable to repeal Obamacare, and the president’s incendiary comments after the unrest in Charlottesville only made things worse, the paper reported. The rift, marked by Trump’s repeated attacks on the majority leader on Twitter and an angry phone call between the two that deteriorated into cursing, comes at

President Trump’s “America First” base was the biggest loser of Trump’s speech on Afghanistan Monday night, and many quickly expressed their disappointment at the business-as-usual address from the president who had once promised to limit American intervention abroad and focus on nation-building at home. Trump’s speech, in which he pledged to increase the number of troops in the 16-year-war, was the first since the departure of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and confirmed the fears of many on the right that without a strong nationalist voice in the West Wing, the President would revert to the same old fare that Americans had
