When Barack Obama was first elected in 2008, I felt as disappointed as I did when Bill Clinton was elected in 1992. The disappointment was, however, with the voters who didn´t seem to care about the flimsy performance records these men had and which I always use to determine a candidate´s qualifications. Gov. Clinton of Arkansas had a dismal record in office with that state being ranked 49th out of 50 and his campaign was inundated with numerous scandal rumors of sexual misbehavior. Yet a relative told me she voted for him because Bush â€˜41 was too old even though he
Excellent article so typical of Alicia. She is a jewel! I remember one of my friends voted for Obama because he was black and she said it was time for a black man to be President. I always thought she was smart, but quickly changed my mind. You don´t vote for looks or color or speeches. You look for ideology and Obama leaned towards Socialism. That is what Pres. Trump is trying to get rid of.
A MUST read. FTA: "The fact is there should be no ´Never Trumpers´ since his election. Those seeking to remove him via impeachment are nothing less than treasonous, self-serving, petulant, and just plain stupid." She nails them all, especially the RINOs. First thing I have read today, and it put a smile on my face.
The MSM are very visible, but this meltdown exists across the population. I was at a simple four way stop in my neighborhood yesterday. Mine was the third car to arrive, and there had not been any significant wait, but this guy, who looked to be in his 60s, was screaming, flailing his arms and there was true hatred on his face. So beware of Trump hatred that shows up as road rage.
I am glad she likes his tweets. I do too. He never lies although the Democrats are trying to establish a factoid along those lines through repetition. I like to know what he is thinking and when he disagrees with everybody he is usually borne out.
You would think that all of the leftists would be looking at their IRAs, stock values, pension plans, etc and realize that PDT is actually doing a great job. But no, they’d rather give credit to the guy who almost destroyed the country’s currency, bond rating, GDP and employment rates.
I know a lefty woman who lives in the wealthiest town in one of the top five wealthiest counties (just outside DC) in the country. She loathes PDT, attended the pussy hat march and told me that she was concerned about her neighbors’ financial welfare. To which I responded, “Have they looked at their stock portfolios lately”?
Ignorance, stupidity and hatred - what a great combination.
FTA: ´´The fact is there should be no ´Never Trumpers´ since his election. Those seeking to remove him via impeachment are nothing less than treasonous, self-serving, petulant, and just plain stupid.´´
Yes, they hate Trump more than any other Republican. Why? Because he´s totally unpredictable. Reagan was like that, but Trump even more so. Let´s face it, the Media are ignoramuses. They need each other for support with a script and talking points. They don´t know how to handle the cold hard truth when smacked head on with it. Having President Trump at the helm debunking them at every turn has been a joy to behold.
Worse than the liberals (who also had irrational hatred for W. Bush) are the #NeverTrumpers. If they had had their way, Hillary Clinton would be President now. They don´t have to like Trump personally but they need to support him. If Trump goes down, so does the Republican party and so does the country.
The more Good Trump does, the more the Loony Left ( = Democrats/Enemedia) will have to openly oppose the Good. The more Great Trump does, the more the Loony Left ( = Democrats/Enemedia) will have to openly oppose the Great.
The more the Loony Left ( = Democrats/Enemedia) exposes itself for what it really is, the better.
FTA: If the New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, CNN, MSNBC and the major networks ever want to regain their sanity and integrity, they need to take a deep breath, look in the mirror and say-"Donald Trump is president of the United States and we accept him for the good of our country."
We deplorables did it in 2008 and 2012 and survived with our sanity intact. Here´s hoping the mainstream media will do the same.
They will NEVER accept Trump as President because his existence as such nullifies their value in life, to push their liberal agenda. Further, it´s personal. Their self worth is completely wrapped up in what they do. They are failing and they just cannot stand it.
They are too far gone to try to recapture their sanity. And they did it to themselves.
What I always say is: "The Presidency of the United States is not a figurehead position. It is a position of significant executive power. To vote for someone on the basis of their sex - or of their skin color - would be very foolish. We already made that mistake once. Let´s not do it again."
Nice article and very truthful. Unfortunately she is "preaching to the choir". We "deplorables" have know all this for several decades. But try to make the very malicious progressive/socialists recognize that we are on to them and simply are not going to go along with their America destroying ideology any longer. It is very clear that they would prefer a "hot revolution" rather than admit defeat. If they do impeach the POTUS without proof beyond a reasonable doubt that he has committed a felony crime while in office, they WILL get that revolution and they will become extinct on this planet.
I think it goes a little deeper. Trump hatred is not insanity. It is orchestrated by elites- the oligarchy- to keep as much of their power as they can under the new regime. That power was hidden in a super-constitutional permission that was endowed by the Obama group and their enablers in a system we now are calling, "The Deep State". Those operatives of the Obama regime are still operating with the Obama agenda. The operatives have been duly placed in an attempt to subvert as much of this nation´s laws as possible and to do as much damage as possible until the leftist elites can be re-established via another election. They are merely "pause holders" protecting the already sinister elements for a future government of their own design. If they can not subvert Trump, replace him as soon as possible through extraordinary means, they will simply log-jam his agenda as much as possible. The media elites are part of this cabal and so are the educational elites. This ´chaos´ that seems to border on insanity, is simply all part of the increased friction they use to slow down Trump´s effort to dislodge them. If they can´t replace Trump to their own satisfaction, they will go dormant and wait. Sooner or later, they will come out when their time is juicy ripe. These people never quit. Their mission, to them, is far more important than the preservation of our liberty, our laws, or any form of human decency. They are the most dangerous form of enemy any state can have.
Russell Simmons has put his #NotMe campaign on ice, Page Six has exclusively learned. After the mogul’s fiery crusade to clear his name over sexual misconduct allegations went mysteriously quiet, his reps told us that Simmons had instead decided “that this is a time for women to speak.” In November and December, the Def Jam co-founder was accused of various forms of sexual misconduct — including rape and attempted rape — by some 13 women. Although he stepped down from his businesses, Simmons said on Instagram that he was committed to proving his innocence. On Dec. 14, he wrote, “Today, I begin
It’s February 2021, just a few weeks into the Oprah Winfrey Administration, and, far from healing America’s divides, it turns out that President Winfrey has only deepened them. Hundreds of thousands of Americans who had voted to re-elect President Trump take to the streets in mass protests in dozens of American cities, wearing white “Keep America Great” hats, carrying “resist!” signs, and driving pickup trucks with gun racks and bumper stickers that say “not my president.” These volunteer activists push Republican Congressmen and senators to vote against every single one of Ms. Winfrey’s cabinet nominees and judicial picks — even the
While Washington obsesses over a new book on White House intrigue, the Trump administration is reaching a critical point on the issue of immigration, one of the president´s top priorities and the subject of his most often-repeated campaign promises. There are multiple moving parts: DACA, a border wall, chain migration, the visa lottery, and — hanging over it all — funding the government. But everything hinges on DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, unilaterally imposed by Barack Obama to temporarily legalize nearly 800,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally when they were young. When President Trump rescinded DACA
President Donald Trump´s son, Donald Trump Jr., slammed his father´s former White House aide and campaign chairman Steve Bannon on Wednesday after outrageous remarks that Bannon made in a book became public. In the book, Bannon told author Michael Wolff that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation would “crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV.” Bannon added that the meeting between Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer was "treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s***.” Trump Jr. hit back at Bannon following the revelation of his remarks in the book, landing multiple punches on Bannon, who is rapidly becoming an annoyance to
The veteran journalist Michael Wolff set off a bomb yesterday in the middle of Trumpworld when details emerged from his new inside-the-White-House book, “Fire and Fury.” In the Guardian, the world read with dropped jaw about how former chief strategist Steve Bannon used the words “treasonous” and “unpatriotic” to describe Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russians in July 2016 and said there was “zero” chance the son hadn’t brought the Russians to meet his father. This meeting is a key event in the so-called “Russian collusion” timeline the president and his supporters say was a meaningless dead end. Then an excerpt from
Washington -President Donald Trump warned North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday that he has a nuclear "button" on his desk at all times and boasted that the US has "much bigger & more powerful" nuclear weapons -- a stunning threat that has once again raised questions over what it takes to actually launch a nuclear warhead. "North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ´Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.´ Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much
Among the many things he’s been called — “blunt,” “pathetic,” “calculating” — the one thing Michael Wolff has never been described as is boring. A provocateur and media polemicist, Wolff has a penchant for stirring up an argument and pushing the facts as far as they’ll go, and sometimes further than they can tolerate, according to his critics. He has been accused of not just re-creating scenes in his books and columns, but of creating them wholesale. That’s some context for Wolff’s most explosive bit of reporting to date: A scathing new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” describing
On the afternoon of November 8, 2016, Kellyanne Conway settled into her glass office at Trump Tower. Right up until the last weeks of the race, the campaign headquarters had remained a listless place. All that seemed to distinguish it from a corporate back office were a few posters with right-wing slogans. Conway, the campaign’s manager, was in a remarkably buoyant mood, considering she was about to experience a resounding, if not cataclysmic, defeat. Donald Trump would lose the election — of this she was sure — but he would quite possibly hold the defeat to under six points. That
The federal grand jury handing down indictments for special counsel Robert Mueller doesn’t appear to include any supporters of President Donald Trump, according to one witness who recently testified before the panel. “The grand jury room looks like a Bernie Sanders rally,” my source said. “Maybe they found these jurors in central casting, or at a Black Lives Matter rally in Berkeley [Calif.]” Of the 20 jurors, 11 are African-Americans and two were wearing “peace T-shirts,” the witness said. “There was only one white male in the room, and he was a prosecutor.” Mueller was not present. The Washington, DC, grand jury, which
Anthony Scaramucci is insisting that the recent reports about him are not true and that he’s not about to get a new job in the White House. “The Mooch” claims to speak with Donald Trump on a regular basis, and according to The Daily Beast, the former communications director recently told friends that the president misses having him in the West Wing. These associates told the news outlet that it seems like Scaramucci believes he will soon get another whack at a career in Trumpworld. The Daily Beast noted that there was a lot of skepticism of Scaramucci’s supposed claims
Heartbroken pals of a Scarsdale teen killed with his parents and two brothers in a fiery Costa Rican plane crash made a grim pilgrimage to the tragic family’s home Monday to try to work through their grief. Jonah Gray, 18, was best friends with middle child William Steinberg, also 18, since both were 2. Gray recalled how they watched “Thomas the Train” and played with Legos before moving on to “The Family Guy” and varsity tennis at Scarsdale High School and basketball at the Westchester Reform Temple. “For the first time in my life, I feel like an adult —
Way back when I worked as a columnist for The New York Sun, (2007) I kept getting a call from a mysterious man who insisted on meeting me in person. He told me I was referred by a writer who writes for the New York Times and that he wanted to give me an important story. I checked out the writer who confirmed that she felt the Sun would be a better fit --- in other words, this was not something the Times would be interested in but she thought it was worth exploring. Actually the truth was the NY Times wasn´t
Michelle Obama and her eldest daughter Malia made a rare appearance in swimsuits as they are enjoying the sun in Miami.The mother and 19-year-old daughter were spotted walking off Miami Beach on Saturday surrounded by friends - including former Obama administration senior advisor Valerie Jarrett - and Secret Service personnel.Michelle, 53, looked sensational in a white bikini top matched with high-waisted white denim cut-off shorts as she trudged her way barefoot through the sand, holding her shoes in one hand.
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
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. And forget that Hawaii´s Emergency Management Agency (EMA), run by the Hawaiian state government, apologized for setting off the false alarm when someone pushed the wrong button. 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
This is the shocking moment a massive brawl broke out in a California pizza restaurant over a missing iPhone that turned out to have been in the lost and found the whole time. 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. Newark police officers had to call in officers from the Fremont Police Department
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.’”
TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy
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. No Clinton Foundation funds—dedicated to Haiti or otherwise—
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) on Monday announced she plans to boycott President Trump´s State of the Union address to Congress at the end of the month, joining a handful of other Democratic lawmakers who are skipping the annual event. "I´m here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to say I will not be going to the State of the Union," Jayapal said in a video posted on social media. "I think it is absolutely unacceptable to see the racism and the hatred coming out the White House in a way in which this president is fueling the flames of divisiveness across
Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson added her name to a growing list of Democratic lawmakers who say they are fed up with President Trump and will boycott his State of the Union address at the end of the month. (snip) “For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement late Sunday. “I have no doubts that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty
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
