How did the 2020 election sneak
up on us so quickly?

The clock is ticking. It’s getting closer. Only 1,118 days until Election Day in 2020. So, naturally pollster thoughts turn to Nov. 3, 2020 and how the most clickable, news-making political personality in a long while might do. Oh, sure, worry warts and precision proponents will suggest a few things might occur to affect voters’ decision between now and then. [Snip] And, OK, Trump’s barely 19% of the way through a first term. So, even though most Americans seem to have an opinion about this man, the YouGov/Economist polling folks asked Republicans: Do you want Donald Trump to run for

Notice how much the left lives in the future and also keeps lying to themselves about President Trump daily? I am sure they are all enjoying this great stock market however. I sure have been!

Fewer adults labeling self
‘conservative’ since Trump
Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 1/12/2018 12:29:40     Post Reply
Is Donald Trump’s brand of turmoil politics giving the ‘conservative’ label a bad name? Maybe Republican members of Congress who aren’t very conservative? Or perhaps Nancy Pelosi’s liberal charisma is attracting converts? Something is going on. When asked over the past quarter-century, more Americans have considered themselves conservative than liberal, sometimes by as much as 20 percentage points. That’s one reason why — have you noticed? — in recent years liberals have tried to re-brand themselves as ‘progressive.’ [Snip] More Americans still do claim to be conservative. But the lead is shrinking. And the reasons are revealing.

Oh-oh. Here we are barely three weeks out from the Super Bowl and NBC has yet to sell all its ads. Same for the ensuing Winter Olympics. [Snip] It’s an immense economic gamble for NBC, which has committed to live-sports programming but now finds live-sports ratings tumbling for events like the National Football League and Olympics. NBC is paying $12 billion to those old guys on the Olympic Committee through 2032. But more trouble looms. First of all,

Trump is handling Iran just right

If you’ve got a minute to pause from our collective obsession with a gossipy book of dubious veracity, here’s an issue of compelling importance that reveals another side of this president and his administration: Iran and how Donald Trump addresses the deadly anti-regime demonstrations now convulsing that historic land that clearly is the linchpin of any future regional stability, or the opposite. The last time such nationwide protests erupted there – the Green Revolution of 2009 -- Barack Obama was painfully reluctant to involve the U.S. [Snip] ?Though there’s little media notice these days, there’s no confusion this time. “Oppressive

A brand new year suggests a fresh slate with a new set of resolutions and unlimited opportunities for advances and accomplishments. But control your optimism. We’re talking Washington here. Realism rules. To outline some opportunities – and dangers — for the Year of the Dog, here are some questions to keep in mind, whose answers are likely to dominate the news in 2018: WHAT LESSONS has President Trump learned from his first tumultuous year?

A winter of discontent: One year later
Trump, Clinton both unpopular

Here’s a puzzling twist: The winner of the 2016 presidential election is losing badly in polls. And the loser of the 2016 election is losing even worse. The economy’s grown nicely for six straight months. Unemployment is way down. Stock markets are way up. So, at the end of the new president’s first year, why are Americans so unhappy politically? What’s going on? The evidence of trouble is overwhelming. [Snip] As Trump’s base has proven stubbornly supportive no matter what, so too has his far larger mob of disapprovers, who seems to ignore or can’t make out the good news amid

Trump’s national security plan: Iran threat

For years, Iran has been accurately labeled as the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. Now, quietly with little notice beyond the region, the militant regime in Iran has established a major land force in Syria effectively threatening the existence of Israel. Using the cover of helping Syrian President Bashar al-Assad against domestic insurgents, Tehran now has an estimated 125,000 troops in that country, outnumbering the Syrian army, and enhanced by Russian forces. [Snip] Under pressure from U.S.-advised troops and Iranian and Russian attacks, ISIS has effectively declined as an organized military threat, leaving Iranian and allied Hezbollah forces with

President Trump’s announcement that he, unlike other recent presidents, really is going to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel accomplished several goals, many of them beneficial, all of them revealing about the unorthodox 45th chief executive. It showed Trump fulfilling a major campaign promise, for once unfettered by congressional GOP laggards. It earned him a burst of positive publicity among supporters of that major ally, a rare bastion of diverse democracy in a region chronically torn by tumult and violence. Trump’s bold announcement also sets him apart from recent presidents of both parties, who made numerous similar vows, then

And now for something completely different: A December story totally free of forced kis****, fondl***, gro**** and humiliating resignat****. As the Trump family approaches its first holiday season in the White House, we´re learning more about the new First Lady. She put her personal touch on some of this year’s Christmas decorations, then hung around the unveiling to thank adult volunteers who helped and to play with their children. [Snip] Mrs. Trump showed up at Children’s National Hospital. But this time there was a twist. The First Lady also opened the floor to children’s questions, none of them shouted.

In a rare confirmation of a new investigation, the Justice Department has asked the Senate Judiciary Committee for its uncensored documents relating to last year’s congressional probe into Planned Parenthood’s practices and sale of fetal body tissues. A year ago in the committee’s final report — Human Fetal Tissue Research: Context and Controversy — chairman Chuck Grassley said he found sufficient evidence of abortion providers transferring body parts and tissue from aborted fetuses for research and charging more than the cost of acquiring the material. The Iowa senator also said evidence shows that the Justice Department in several administrations had

Unraveling a Malta murder mystery

The first murky details are emerging about the October assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia, a journalist in Malta who tied the famous Panama Papers to allegedly corrupt activities of that island’s government. The 53-year-old blogger was known for her criticism of the government of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, suggesting corrupt ties between his confidantes and official circles in Azerbaijan. She used information culled from the Panama Papers. Those documents — nearly 12 million of them — were leaked from a Panamanian law firm in 2015. They detailed confidential financial information and investments of public officials and wealthy individuals around the

Fans of Robert Ludlum’s thrillers easily recognize his protagonists as calm, canny, determined and worldly fellows quietly fighting sinister forces out to get rid of them in stealthy ways. No one characterizes Rex Tillerson as thrilling. But he could otherwise fit that role. [Snip] Tillerson soon may become one of that office’s shortest-serving. The latest bold bid by nameless administration sources to oust Tillerson by leak in collusion with cooperative media members is a classic D.C. maneuver full of intrigue, ambition and malevolence. It is also illustrative of the fetid field of play that so many millions of Americans disdain

Economic sanctions on misbehaving nations such as North Korea haven’t worked. So, perhaps more of them will. That’s pretty much where the Trump administration and its Asian allies are right now as they continue a decades-long international effort to halt that recalcitrant rogue regime’s rapidly-advancing nuclear weapons development program. In recent years, sanctions against countries, individuals and companies have become the go-to political ploy for Western nations needing another press release to appear to show they’re really doing something to rein in another country. President Donald Trump laid more of them on Pyongyang the other day. [Snip] Here’s the problem: Asian

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate

The most recent attack on the president is designed to throw him off balance during the debate on immigration. Senator Durbin, doing his best Claude Rains imitation, stated, "I cannot believe that, in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday." Durbin was responding to Trump´s alleged comment that Haiti, El Salvador, and certain African countries are "s---holes." Many of the reports omit mention of El Salvador because it does not fit the anti-black allegations. Senator Durbin is not a young man, and he

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

Actress and yogurt salesman Jamie Lee Curtis knows exactly whom to blame for a false alarm that told Hawaiians an incoming ballistic missile was detected. It was all President Trump´s fault. Duh. Now, never mind that Trump was in Florida at the time. On the golf course.

In a Saturday afternoon post on Twitter, Curtis attacked Trump, writing "YOU DID THIS!" "This Hawaii missile scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that

Police were called to John´s Incredible Pizza Company in Newark´s NewPark Mall on Saturday night after violence erupted. It broke out after a girl missing her phone had approached a group to see if they´d seen it but quickly descended into chaos, with video showing two large groups of people exchanging blows and screaming at each other.

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind.

Lots of the news from sub-Saharan Africa is about war, famine, poverty or political upheaval. So it’s understandable if many Americans think most Africans who immigrate to the United States are poorly educated and desperate. Research tells another story. While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the diversity-visa program aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated than people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.

Former President Bill Clinton said on Twitter Saturday that no Clinton Foundation funds were used to pay for his daughter´s wedding. After President Trump reportedly made crude remarks about Haiti and other less-developed countries, some on the right pointed to alleged mishandling of Haitian earthquake relief funds by the Clinton Foundation. On Twitter, President Clinton slammed the notion that any funds from the foundation, whether earmarked for Haiti or not, were used in association with his daughter Chelsea´s wedding to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky.

Why would my 22-year-old brother be calling so early on a Saturday morning? I’d ignored the first call. But the second time the phone rang, I picked it up. He was panicking, his voice trembling uncharacteristically: He’d just received the emergency alert warning of a ballistic missile that was heading for Hawaii, where I’m from, and where he and my family still live. “THIS IS NOT A DRILL,” the alert read. My brother was alone, and had no idea what to do or where to go. And he wouldn’t have had much time to figure out a game plan—some estimates
