A solid majority of voters support President Trump´s outreach to Democrats to make deals he can´t with Republicans, according to a new survey that endorses his new relationship with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, even 51 percent of Republican voters and self-described conservatives support the president´s actions. The survey is more bad news for Republicans because it shows GOP voters eagerly endorsing Trump´s decision to abandon his party. And it shows that voters have little faith in their House and Senate leaders to help the president. Trump has spent the summer
The thing is that he reached out to them on an issue that was already just a political hoo ha anyway. The GOP was going to cave to Dems on raising the debt ceiling, but only after a lot of harrumphing and ticking off of the base. So he went around them and made nice with the Dems. They get a win, he gets a win.
Traitors don´t get to win, and that´s what GOPe is.
The fear I have is that Trump might actually think the Dems are his friends. That they won´t impeach him the second they have the majority. And they are likely to get the majority in one or both houses the way the GOP is playing this.
It´s a nest of vipers. I hope he knows what he´s doing.
Bedard is right. We the people have little to no faith in our legislators at all. What are they in DC for? They don´t write the bills do they?, they mostly take bribes from lobbyists for corporations that want things favorable to their interests, not ours. Who can blame our President by- passing the slothful to get the job done?
Re 3 GOPe did everything to stop President Trump- he owes them NOTHING. Ryan and Mcconnell are still slow walking his Agenda. They are more Satan than Schumer /Pelosi-you know they are scum-´Ryannand Mcconnell pretend to be Conservatives - they are just globalist SwampDwellers.
1) Trump is branded a Republican, but is "Independent". He seems to have been registered with both major parties and the Reform Party, as well.
2) Trump is a dealmaker. He will make deals. He is not an ideologue - so the deals he makes will be pragmatic and not necessarily satisfying to his supporters. Some call this 3-D chess...I call it politics. So when that big, beautiful wall comes with big, beautiful gates and "comprehensive reform" that includes amnesty by whatever name, don´t be surprised or upset.
3) The two major parties are a "Uniparty", with one "conservative" only in the sense that it hangs half a step behind the "radical" other and claims to hold traditions dear. Both are institutionalized by such things as ballot access laws and public campaign financing. Both "fix" elections for their favored sons and daughters. Both put on various acts for the "booboisie". It´s just business to any/all of them. H. L. Mencken correctly described democracy as "the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage."
Anyone who believes that the GOP “brung” Donald Trump to the presidency is either delusional or seriously underinformed. They did everything they could to stop him. Jeb was supposed to be their nominee.
In January, I took up Donald Trump’s extraordinary promise to bring the crime and violence we know today to a quick end. I argued that this seemingly impossible vow can be fulfilled, but only by dramatically increasing the speed and certainty with which murderers are put to death. My piece had no impact at National Review Online, where the only published response dismissed it as an “authoritarian screed.” It’s as if NRO had embraced the old liberal saw, “A high crime rate is the price we pay for living in a free society.” National Review used to have a better
Lindsey Graham, a longtime Establishment fixture, and Bill Cassidy, senator from Louisiana, (who is also a former physician) revealed a surprising effort over the weekend to revisit getting rid of the failed and costly Obamacare boondoggle that has decimated American healthcare while making the insurance and drug companies even more wealthy than they already were. (Snip)Cassidy and Graham were said to be both startled at the levels of voter animosity they were receiving in their (southern) states for the lack of support being given by Congress to the Trump agenda. They soon discovered their concerns were shared as other
Via Reddit_The Donald, the headline of the day: UN globalists are on suicide watch after President Trump´s speech If you are wondering why Hillary´s speechwriters called us a basket of deplorables, now you know why. They fear President Trump. (Snip) Now the globalists -- the men without a country or a conscience -- are in a panic. Their Russian conspiracy is cracking. Their immoral espionage on Candidate Trump is showing. Their hold on Washington is slipping. President Trump today gave a great speech to the United Nations -- one that proves beyond a doubt that he is the leader of the free world. We live in a
Yesterday President Trump called Xi Jinping; CTH noted the pattern. The reason – today President Trump would be messaging toward Beijing. [There is a difference between talking to Xi Jinping, and talking to Beijing.] Well, did anyone notice President Trump referencing the post WWII “Marshall Plan” today during his U.N. Speech? And…. (tweet)Sept. 19 (UPI) — China’s foreign ministry is urging other countries to return to the “spirit” of the six-party talks and seeking more diplomatic cooperation on North Korea. Beijing’s diplomatic spokesman Lu Kang said Tuesday that China places value on the Sept. 19 joint statement of the six-party talks, South
Donald Trump on Tuesday confirmed yet again why he is the most robust president since Ronald Reagan. Following up on his brilliant speeches before a joint session of Congress in February, his speech about combating Islamic terrorism before Arab leaders in Saudi Arabia, and his splendid defense of Western civilizational values in Warsaw a few months ago, Trump addressed the United Nations and articulated for the 150 delegates at that ostentatiously corrupt institution the signal lesson of successful international relations: that freedom within nations, and comity among them, is best served not by the effacement or attenuation of national sovereignty
MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Dr. Sebastian Gorka will campaign for Judge Roy Moore here in Montgomery, alongside 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Thursday evening. Breitbart News first reported that Palin was traveling here to campaign for Moore, and now Gorka confirmed to Breitbart News Tuesday morning that he is also hitting the trail in Alabama for Moore. “President Trump told me he is still committed to the original MAGA [Make America Great Again] agenda,” Gorka, a former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, who has since left the administration, told Breitbart News on Tuesday morning.
Knowing that former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort was wiretapped by the Obama Administration via the FBI, James Comey, let’s take another look at Comey’s testimony. New York Representative Elise Stefanik begins her March 20th, 2017, questioning by asking director Comey what are the typical protocols, broad standards and procedures for notifying the Director of National Intelligence, the White House and senior congressional leadership (aka the intelligence Gang of Eight), when the FBI has opened a counter-intelligence investigation. The parseltongue response from Comey is a generalized reply
On Tuesday, addressing the United Nations for the first time as president, President Trump delivered a powerful message. On the peril, Trump was clear. He spared no ire in confronting the efforts of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to acquire an intercontinental ballistic missile plus nuclear warhead capability. Trump warned that if the U.S. is "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea." Referencing Kim specifically, Trump warned that "Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for him and his regime." Trump pledged to continue destroying the Islamic State and said America
How exactly did the Left romanticize the Lost Cause Confederacy, and by extension its secession and efforts to preserve slavery? To use a shopworn phrase, “It’s complicated.” Good Ol’ Rebels Well before the end of Jim Crow, post-war leftist Hollywood still largely continued its soft mythologies of the Confederate Lost Cause. Perhaps the cinematic romance arose because of the lucrative fumes of earlier Gone with the Wind fantasies, which themselves might’ve come from an understandable desire to play a part in “binding up the nation’s wounds.” In George Stevens’s mythic Shane (1953), the tragedy of the
Leslie Van Houten was a member of the Charlie Manson “family,” an infamous cult of unrepentant monsters devoted to orgies of sex, torture, and murder. In 1969, the 19-year-old Van Houten plunged a knife into Rosemary LaBianca 14 times. Van Houten made sure the last thing Rosemary witnessed before she died was the murder of her husband, Leno, by the Manson gang. A Los Angeles jury sentenced Van Houten to death, but California law subsequently commuted her sentence to life in prison. Recently, a parole board recommended that she be freed, in large part due to decades of efforts on her behalf by Left-wing academics
NEW YORK — President Trump on Tuesday warned the United Nations that the world faces “great peril” from gathering threats posed by rogue regimes with powerful weapons and terrorists with expanding reach across the globe, issuing a call to fellow leaders to join the United States in the fight to defeat them. “We meet at a time of immense promise and great peril,” Trump said in his maiden address to more than 150 international delegations at the annual U.N. General Assembly. “It is up to us whether we will lift the world to new heights or let it fall into a
So the TV stars all came out last night to give each other Emmy awards. They mocked Donald Trump, and high-fived one another over how good their jokes were. Meanwhile, Donald Trump prepared to give his speech to the UN on Tuesday as leader of the free world. (Snip)While Stephen Colbert danced in a homophobic and transphobic routine, President Trump presided over the national government. While Lily Tomlin called him a bigot, Trump was selecting judges for lifetime appointments. He´s cutting regulations. He´s burying the legacy of his unfit, inexperienced, and intellectually sloppy predecessor.
A Texas woman has been getting ridiculed online for being “too sensitive” after she blasted the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby for selling faux raw cotton stalks — which she found offensive. “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Daniell Rider posted on Facebook this past Thursday, along with a photo of the phony textile plants. “There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she said. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.´” Rider, who is black, appeared to take the picture of the cotton herself
Hillary Clinton told host Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air” Monday that she may challenge the results of the 2016 presidential election. “No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Hillary said in a response to a question asking if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.” Clinton stated that she believes the Russian government influenced the election in favor of Trump, and that this could make the outcome illegitimate. “[Trump knew] they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there… There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more
Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s team is reaching back more than a decade in its investigation of Paul Manafort, a sign of the pressure Mueller is placing on President Donald Trump´s former campaign chairman. The FBI´s warrant for a July search of Manafort´s Alexandria, Virginia, home said the investigation centered on possible crimes committed as far back as January 2006, according to a source briefed on the investigation. The broad time frame is the latest indication that Mueller´s team is going well beyond Russian meddling during the campaign as part of its investigation of Trump campaign associates. Manafort,
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while reacting to President Donald Trump’s speech at United Nations, former White House press secretary for the Obama administration Josh Earnest said the overall speech lacked “coherence,” and Trump mocking North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un was “foolish.” Earnest said, “Having sat in the hall of the United Nations where the president of the United States delivers an address for gathered world leaders — that’s something I did for the last three years—what you know world leaders are looking for in that room is a coherent strategy for taking on the biggest challenges around the
Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong, a new study has found. New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output. (Snip) The discrepancy means nations could continue emitting carbon dioxide at the current rate for another 20 years before the target was breached, instead of the three to five predicted by the previous model. “When you are talking about a budget of 1.5
United Nations - The Latest on President Donald Trump and North Korea (all times local): 8:00 a.m. Former Secretary of State John Kerry says President Donald Trump´s United Nations speech may have put America in isolation and danger. Appearing on MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" show Wednesday, Kerry criticized Trump´s harsh rhetoric against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Kerry said, "You have to ask yourself: Is America safer because of ´rocket man?" He was referring to Trump´s characterization of Kim. Kerry said that kind of harsh language will make it harder for the United States to engage in diplomacy on
Hillary Clinton´s "What Happened" had a big debut. Clinton´s book about her stunning loss in 2016 to Donald Trump sold more than 300,000 copies in the combined formats of hardcover, e-book and audio, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book´s hardcover sales of 168,000 was the highest opening for any nonfiction release in five years, according to NPD BookScan, which tracks around 85 percent of retail print sales. Mark Owen´s "No Easy Day," a 2012 memoir about the killing of Osama bin Laden, sold more than 250,000 copies in its first week. Sales for "What Happened"
Union — A violent brawl over the weekend between two couples at a local Walmart was captured on video showing punches being exchanged as children watched and attempted to intervene. The video appears to show the two couples fighting Saturday near the jewelry section in the store on Springfield Road in Union. (Snip) The two men can be seen exchanging blows as the two women brawl at the same time. A third woman can be seen attempting to break up the fight between the two women with two young children also trying to intervene. Dozens of customers looked on at the ensuing
Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown of California compared President Donald Trump supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers Monday during a New York climate event. Brown, an outspoken Trump critic, issued an usually harsh derision of Trump supporters after dismissing the president’s rhetoric on climate change science and U.S. policy toward North Korea as “stupid and dangerous and silly.” “They’re both kind of very similar,” Brown said. “You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.” Brown attended the climate event, which coincided with the U.N. meeting in New York,
Liberal Brown University is set to offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over the last few months. Purporting to offer “racial reconciliation,” Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman’s Own Foundation. There will be two separate segregated “dinner discussion groups,” one for African
Filmmaker James O´Keefe said on Monday that Project Veritas will be releasing the results of one of the largest investigations the organization has ever conducted. The Project, said O´Keefe, will lead to people being fired. "In the coming weeks, you’re going see one of the biggest investigations this organization has ever done," O’Keefe said. "It’s a continuation of American Pravda series. It’s aimed at the media. We’re going after their holy grail." "We have tripled our journalists in the field," he continued. "They are not even here, they are out there everyday. It’s gonna be big, it’s gonna be massive.
U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory. President Trump had tweeted on March 4: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” (Tweet) Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak had reported the day before Trump’s tweet that the Obama administration “sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign: continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found.” Trump’s claim,
