Establishment GOP Puts Cronies
over Country on Missile Defense

American Greatness, by Angelo Codevilla

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 9/13/2017 11:22:55 AM

As North Korea demonstrates America’s vulnerability to ballistic missiles, and as President Trump pledges “many billions of dollars” for “the anti-missile,” establishment Republicans are poised to use missile defense talk today in the same way they did in the wake of Ronald Reagan’s commitment to it: profit politically from rhetoric, funnel money to the best-connected contractors, and accomplish nothing. Since Reagan restored missile defense to the nation’s agenda 34 years ago, Republicans have led the spending of some 80 billion dollars on its behalf. But they have acquiesced as the U.S government has crafted each and every program according to

Comments:
The article goes on to talk about “The $30 Billion Boondoggle”.

Well worth a read, especially for anyone who still hankers for McConnell, Ryan and/or any of the Establishment GOPe types.

Got a fund raising letter in the mail today from the Republican National Committee. It´s going right in the round file. We gave the GOP the House, the Senate and the Presidency and they are squandering an opportunity of a lifetime to turn things around in this county. The RINO´s like Ryan, McConnell, McCain, etc., cannot pass themselves off as conservatives anymore. DRAIN THE SWAMP!

Somebody give this article to president Trump, please.
Angelo Codevilla and Victor Hanson Davis are national treasures.

The Unforgivable & Ugly Racism
Directed At Malia Obama Because
She Kissed A White Man
DCWhispers, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 11/24/2017 6:10:07     Post Reply
Recent pics of Malia Obama showed her kissing a tall, athletically-built white male who was most likely a fellow university student. It seems normal enough, right? She’s a young woman, he’s a young man – so what’s the problem? Well, apparently many in the Black community find what she did to be an appalling act of…racism. The onslaught of negativity directed at the daughter of the former President is both shocking and troubling. Why do so many choose to see the world through the narrow prism of color and then demand that color requires one to never deviate from their “rules”

The Hill says going home is unethical

The SJW -- social justice warrior -- takeover of The Hill is complete. It now considers President Trump staying on his own property is unethical. Does it get any more rabidly insane liberal than that?Oh, the Hill attributed its conclusion to "critics and ethics experts," but the publication named no one -- and in fact, failed to contact Trump or his staff for comment. Instead, we got this mush: Thanksgiving Day will mark the 100th day President Trump has spent at one of his properties since taking office. The Trump family is spending Thanksgiving weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort in

London transit authorities reopened the Oxford Circus tube station Friday following reports of gunfire. Transport for London said Oxford Circus and nearby Bond Street station were reopened to subway trains.n an early statement, London´s Metropolitan Police said they were called to the scene at the underground station and were responding "as if the incident is terrorist-related." Police asked residents to avoid the area. Later, police tweeted they had not located “any trace of suspects, evidence of shots fired or casualties.” We have not located any trace of suspects, evidence of shots fired or casualties. Officers still on scene. If you

The New York Times reporters are outlining another silly story to squeeze out the final drips of usefulness within the vast Russian conspiracy narrative. Comey’s leak recipient Michael Schmidt, and the narrative engineer with a Phd in passive aggressive writing, Maggie Haberman, collaborate. The outline is that lawyers for Michael Flynn are no longer sharing information with lawyers from the Trump team. Obviously the intended premise of this engineering feat is infer that Flynn is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller to the detriment of President Trump. Key word for narrative building here is: ‘infer’. The years’-long media Russian conspiracy script

Conformity and Manipulation:
The American Virtues
Taki’s Magazine, by Christopher DeGroot    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 11/24/2017 10:55:33     Post Reply
“My biggest flaw and strength,” says James Damore, “may be that I see things very differently than normal.” This simple sentence reveals the essence of our fraying social fabric. For Damore’s “strength”—his rare ability to think for himself and exercise independent judgment—naturally leads to conflict with the majority, who, in their stupidity and weakness, must deem his virtue a “flaw,” a sign that he is not “normal.” For most people—those bundles of herd affect—“truth,” as they can understand it, is nothing but a means for their personal interests, which are mostly material and, beyond that, trivial. Hence their utter inability

POTUS Trump speaks simple truths the Establishment Media chooses to ignore. These are truths that concern real jobs for real Americans that would help to lift up a struggling Middle Class. One of those truths is how China has economically raped the United States for decades costing millions of jobs, and likely trillions in economic growth. Mr. Trump is demanding this must end and he’s 100% correct as the following excerpt from The Weekly Standard makes abundantly clear: (Snip)China has announced that it will soon be marketing its cars in the United States. The People’s Republic is the largest manufacturer

Let us cut to the chase: the NFL owns the players´ protest because not only has the league failed to hold players accountable, its owners joined in the anti-American protest. Well, virtue signaling has a price. Americans are about to pull tax breaks that the league enjoys. I want to make clear exactly what this protest is about. Colin Kaepernick said: "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.

There’s an interesting interview within the New York Times written by Thomas Friedman who interviews Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman about the current changes taking place within Saudi Arabia and MbS’s intense drive to modernize and engage. The article is well worth reading. CTH would be remiss if we didn’t draw attention to the level of jaw-dropping weasel linguistics that Friedman uses to jump on the MbS bandwagon. If you have never read Friedman’s interviews of President Obama –EXAMPLE HERE– you might not see it. However, if you have watched the decade of fawning idolatry expressed by Friedman toward the Chicago lightbringer

WASHINGTON Political guru Paul Manafort took at least 18 trips to Moscow and was in frequent contact with Vladimir Putin’s allies for nearly a decade as a consultant in Russia and Ukraine for oligarchs and pro-Kremlin parties. Even after the February 2014 fall of Ukraine’s pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovych, who won office with the help of a Manafort-engineered image makeover, the American consultant flew to Kiev another 19 times over the next 20 months while working for the smaller, pro-Russian Opposition Bloc party. Manafort went so far as to suggest the party take an anti-NATO stance, an Oppo Bloc architect

The rituals we observe, the company we keep, the memories we honor—these are the things that bind a people together and give them a sense of themselves. Our public holidays make the present a link between the past and the future. They are public displays of what a people values. In America, we value gratitude. From our earliest days, Americans have taken time to give thanks and to do so publicly and together. We’ve done this since before there really was such a thing as an American. The earliest people to celebrate a day of thanks in the new world were

NEW YORK—Let’s all dogpile on the Electoral College. It’s undemocratic, it’s outdated, it’s un-American. The New York Times (surprise, surprise) believes it should be abolished and we should go to a straight-up popular vote. Because (this is the part they don’t tell you when they make this argument)... Screw Wyoming. Screw Vermont. Screw Arkansas. Screw Rhode Island. Screw Delaware. How could the concerns of those little pipsqueak states matter when the massive voting blocs of the Upper West Side and West Hollywood and Nob Hill and the South Side of Chicago are saying, “You people go back to your bass boats and your cattle ranches and your plaid

Warning About Dangers Of
Uranium One Deal
DCWhispers, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 11/23/2017 10:43:59     Post Reply
The warning was issued December 21st, 2010. Barack Obama was President and Hillary Clinton his Secretary of State. A uranium deal that allocated a sizable portion of U.S. uranium reserves had just been awarded to Russian government-controlled interests. The deal made no sense. It weakened American security. It also made the Clinton Foundation very-very rich via donations made by corporate interests directly tied to the deal. Senator John Barrasso sounded the alarm. Barack Obama, his administration, and much of the Establishment Media chose to ignore the warning. Read the senator’s letter to then-President Obama here: (screen shot of letter)

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday clarified that his walking boot is on his right foot, adding that he switched it to his left to "give it a break." McCain caused confusion when he posted a photo from his daughter Meghan´s wedding in which his walking boot was on his left foot. He had previously been seen wearing it on his right foot after he suffered a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon. McCain took notice of the fallout, and on Thursday took to Twitter to clarify.

Al Franken plans to stay in the U.S. Senate and try to win back Minnesotans’ trust.The Minnesota Democrat, who has been accused by four women — two of them anonymously — of inappropriate contact, issued a Thanksgiving afternoon apology and pledge. He wrote that he “feels terribly that I’ve made some women feel badly.” He called himself “a warm person” who likes to hug people when they’re being photographed with him, but clearly, his embrace “crossed a line for some women.” Although his statement did not directly address the question of whether he might resign, he vowed

Time magazine is already celebrating their Best of 2017, and their favorite "Non-Fiction" book of the year is....Hillary Clinton´s campaign memoir What Happened. Time assistant managing editor Claire Howorth gushed, "Clinton offers one answer to the question that rang collectively from more than half the country on Nov. 9, 2016. The writing is frank, reflective and a piece of modern history." It came complete with buying instructions from Amazon, and Hillary Clinton quickly tweeted out how "honored" she was: "I loved writing this book, & I’m honored to be in such great company on this list!"

We have already reached the cornered animal stage of Democrats caught up in the sexual harassment hysteria. Is there anything more amusing than watching your enemies play a game of chicken with each other, threatening mutual assured destruction? Even better: a threat that comes written in all-caps, the cyber equivalent of shouting, hinting that “many members” could find themselves in a similarly difficult situation.

A retired lieutenant general said Thursday that President Trump’s comments to troops deployed overseas, which included remarks about the economy and military’s recent success, were “somewhat insulting.” “First of all, I’m thankful for the fact that he did address the soldiers. But the message I heard and some of the things he said would not have rung very well with me had I been a deployed soldier,” CNN military analyst and retired Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling said. Trump spoke from his Mar-a-Lago estate to troops deployed overseas via video teleconference. During the call, the president praised the military’s recent performance,

True to the theme that he’s been nationally talking about – or rather, taking a knee for – since last summer, former 49er Colin Kaepernick attended an “Unthanksgiving Day” celebration on Alcatraz Island. The Indigenous Peoples Sunrise Ceremony, held annually on Thanksgiving since 1975, commemorates the survival of Native American peoples following the settlement of Europeans in the Western Hemisphere. Kaepernick began making headlines in August when a photographer spotting him sitting during the national anthem. He told reporters that he sat, or took a knee, because he was fighting to combat the oppression of people of color and ongoing issues

The ever-widening use of artificial lights is making the nighttime Earth glow increasingly brighter, with the amount of global light growing about 2 percent each year. That worries advocates for the protection of dark skies, who say that artificial night glow can affect wildlife like migrating birds and keeps people from connecting to the stars. What´s more, they say, all that wasted light sent out into space is effectively wasted money. The findings are in a new study in the journal Science Advances that used five years of data from a satellite launched in 2011. This satellite has an instrument that gives
