  • Trump And Mental Health – The Gun Control Lie

    02/20/2018 11:26:04 AM PST · 6 of 7
    adorno to Starman417

    The solution which liberals seek when it comes to “gun control”, would be similar to what countries such as Cuba and Venezuela and China and N. Korea have.

    People in those countries don’t go around shooting each other up.

    So, the solution would end up being to create a dictatorial regime, where only the government has guns.

    In essence, what the liberals ultimately are after, is the eventual repeal of the 2nd amendment, which means taking away the people’s right to bear arms.

    I think Oprah could run and win against Trump.

    Her winning platform would be: “A new car in every driveway! You get a car! And you get a car! And you, and you!”.

    I am completely certain that there is a huge amount of corruption in our government and especially agencies like the FBI, DOJ, IRS, CIA etc...

    I've been under that impression and belief, for a long time now.

    I believe that liberals have done to the FBI and DOJ and other federal agencies, the same thing they did with the education department, where most teachers and staff, are liberals. Democrats also took over most of the press/media, where they now control "the message" via 90% control of all media.

    There is no doubt in my mind that liberals were doing the same to our government agencies, what they did with the liberal press, where it's next to impossible to land a job at such media sources as the NYT and CNN and MSNBC and ABC/CBS/NBC and most others. Interviews and job offers go only to those that support liberal views and the liberal agenda. Same has been happening to "our" FBI and DOJ and Homeland security and Education department and EPA. If you're not liberal, chances are that you will not get any of those prestigious career jobs. Peter Strzoc and others are just symptoms of how the FBI had slowly been overtaken by liberals. Democrats have not and will not miss any chance of "taking over" the government, one person at a time, one agency at a time.

    We barely escaped a large loaded missile when Trump "somehow" beat Hillary. Democrats still can't believe that they lost the presidency, after having been so successful at loading up the government with "their people". It's why they launched the conspiracy to undo the 2016 election. It was not supposed to happen, not after having "effectively taken" over the government.
  • Olympics Sticks Near 2018 Viewership Low As 19.3M Watch On NBC

    I’m just not seeing any very exciting events or atheletes.

    I'm kind of the same way. Except I've been watching the Olympics backwards from what I used to do with the summer Olympics.

    With the summer Olympics, I used to change channel during the commercials, to see what kind of "excitement" there might be in the ID or HGTV channels. This year, I've been watching ID or HGTV primarily (not much else to watch on regular TV; which is why I'm going to be 'cutting the cord' soon), and during commercials, I might do a quick flip over to NBC to get a quick glimpse of what's doing in the Olympics. I still have not seen anything interesting enough to keep me watching the winter Olympics for more than a minute or two. And, NBC just makes things a whole lot worse.

    That ain’t nothing.

    There’s a story going around, about a woman who got up one day, and had a dream that at the end of that day, she would be president of the U.S., but ended up zombie-like and crying and distraught around her neighborhood and backyard. Don’t believe me? She even wrote a book about it. And half the country believes her story too.

    She won’t have to run in 2020.

    She’ll be automatically declared the president after Trump is forced to resign after having been found guilty of collusion with the Russians to steal the election from Hillary. Mueller is still working hard to make that happen, using the Hillary/Obama/DNC/FBI/DOJ dossier as evidence.

  • Were there really ever any Russians at all?

    I think the time has come for the DOJ heads, and for Trump himself to ask Mueller about what his investigations have been really about, since, the whole thing was based on a phony dossier, fabricated by the Hillary campaign and the DNC and the Obama administration.

    Trump should be asking Mueller about what he (Trump) is being investigated about, and if the answer is about Russian collusion, Trump should throw it right back at him and demand to know there could be collusion allegations from a phony dossier. Mueller cannot have a good answer to that at all. If Mueller mentions obstruction into the investigations, Trump can answer with the same reply, where there cannot be obstruction of investigations based on a phony set of allegations from a phony dossier.

    Mueller is trapped. He cannot, in any shape, way or fashion, come up with anything against Trump based on a phony dossier. Mueller is also trapped on the opposite side of the investigations, where he had better turn up indisputable cases of attempted sedition on the part of the people who fabricated the phony dossier. He has to turn up with charges, but against those who planted the phony evidence in the first place. Anything less, will just point to collusion on the part of Mueller himself.

    Rush does the same. I realize Rush and other talk-show conservatives don't have the time to "catch up with us", but they do have other staff to help them gather other views and opinions from all over the internet, especially from sites such as FR.

    isn’t it the truth ... same here ... however, great minds and all of that ... Trump doesn’t need us so far ... he’s handling things pretty much the way we’d advise him to handle them ...

    Actually, Trump and his administration, do need us. I believe that they're keeping up with what conservatives are thinking and saying and doing. I'm pretty sure that they take good ideas from the internet to revise and issue policy. I'm under the impression that FR and other conservative sites have been influential with helping government direction. Same with the left-wing media sites, unfortunately.

    The Democrats will not revise the memo but instead will sit on it and accuse Trump of using his office to hide the truth. It suits their purposes better that way.

    They won't be able to sit on the memo as it is, and Trump has already rejected it and sent it back. The ball is on their court now. There is no further negotiations necessary. Trump is not at fault here, and democrats know it, no matter how much spinning they attempt.

    Plus, democrats have a "sample memo" to serve as a guide for "improving" their memo, even if the contents are different.

    Trump should hire me as an adviser, because, he's doing precisely what I suggested a few days ago:

    What Trump should do is to send the democrats’ memo back to Schiff. Then, Schiff can use the Nunes memo as an example of the type of information that can be contained in a memo. Trump nor the FBI should have to change the memo. Let the democrats modify it to comply with intelligence regulations, and then, Trump can review it and release it if complies (with) expected FBI snd CIA and DOJ regulations.

  • Electric cars have benefits, but likely won't save you money

    02/07/2018 4:19:10 PM PST · 22 of 42

    Electric cars are cheaper to fuel. It costs $600 per year to charge a Leaf... by comparison, you'll spend $1,050 on gas to fill up the Civic.

    That's A phony comparison.

    In fact, it's the biggest deception that EV proponents and EV makers keep perpetrating.

    Sure enough, it might cost around $1,000 per year to fuel up the Civic.

    But, "fueling" up the Leaf is a lot more expensive.

    So, for ten years usage, the Civic might cost $10,000 to fuel up.

    The leaf will cost $6,000 for ten years. But, that's where the BIG deception lies.

    Here's why it's a big deception...

    When you use a flashlight with batteries, you need to get new batteries to "refuel" the flashlight. Thus, the "fuel" will end up costing more in the long run than the flashlight itself, because of the many batteries that have to be bought.

    Now, the "fuel" for electric vehicle is NOT JUST THE ELECTRICITY to "refuel" the vehicle. The TOTAL fuel for an EV is the total cost of the battery and the electricity. So, if an EV's battery were to cost $10,000 if bought separately, the total cost of "fueling" up the EV would be $10,000 plus the $6,000 electricity. We're talking about $16,000 for 10 years.

    BUT, THAT'S NOT ALL!!!!

    An EV's battery will have to be replaces some 6-8 years down the line; perhaps 10 years if you're lucky. So, at that point, we're talking about another $6,000 for replacing the old battery with a new one, if we're lucky.

    So, at that point, we're talking about total cost of "fueling" costs of $22,000 for an EV.

    In order for the "deception" to disappear from the total cost of ownership, the ICE car makers would have to toss in the cost of refueling for 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. At that point, EVs would be completely out of the question.

    Bottom line is that, when an EV is purchased, people are also being sold the "fuel" to power the vehicle. Without the battery the electricity would be a moot point. Thus, the total fuel for an EV is the batteries plus the electricity.

    Memo wars?

    Devin Nunes released his memo, and there wasn’t any disclosures of sensitive or confidential material.

    The democrats want their memo to be released by Trump, with no redaction or changes, which democrats know contains confidential information.

    What Trump should do is to send the democrats’ memo back to Schiff. Then, Schiff can use the Nunes memo as an example of the type of information that can be contained in a memo. Trump nor the FBI should have to change the memo. Let the democrats modify it to comply with intelligence regulations, and then, Trump can review it and release it if complies expected FBI snd CIA and DOJ regulations.
