  • White House releases sweeping proposal to reorganize government

    The reorganization plan faces tough odds in Congress, where even aside from the dispute over work requirements, any reorganization faces opposition from congressional committees that could lose power if their jurisdictions change.

    Be nice if we could get term limits in place soon.

    Problems with the congress today are related to self interest being more important than nations interest.

  • Liberals really DO drink more lattes (and researchers say it's because they're open-minded)

    Researchers from University of Pennsylvania found that liberals drink lattes more so than conservatives because they are more open to globalization, whereas right-leaning people tend to take an 'America first' nationalistic attitude and shy away from 'foreign products' of all kinds.

    This finding is utter nonsense! People open to globalization must consider themselves being among the elite in such a totalitarian environment that features oppressive taxes, the culture of death, and lack of freedom.

    Most of them will be the ruled, not the rulers.

    Cooperation to this writer is making a deal that favors everyone except the USA.

  • Why is the FBI top heavy with Leftists (Dan Bongino Opinion)

    I had always thought that any law enforcement or military arm found in America would be more conservative than leftist, but this is clearly a faulty assumption on my part, at least as it relates to the FBI.

    The FBI was purged by the Clintons when Bill took office. I was working in DC for the government. We all were shocked to see that GS-14 level FBI agents were being fired by the Clintons and replaced with their own people.

    Subsequent Republican administrations did not do likewise, but left all of the Clinton agents in place.

    The Bush administrations did not purge beyond the political appointment level.

  • IG Horowitz: FBI Withholding Names of Anti-Trump Agents From Public

    Horowitz said the FBI is withholding the names from the public “because they work on counterintelligence.”

    Is it true that the wife of Horowitz works for CNN? Maybe she has the names of the so called counterintelligence agents.

    This whole thing is starting to smell.

  • Mrs. Bush Rails Against 'Cruel' Border Separation Policy

    Mrs. Bush explained why the White House's zero tolerance policy is "cruel," "immoral," and "breaks her heart."

    Mrs. Bush apparently does not know our laws, as passed by the Democrats.

    Perhaps Mrs. Bush is not aware that those families with children seeking asylum at ports of entry, are NOT separated.

    There are exceptions, DHS will only separate at ports of entry if the child is in danger, if there is no custodial relationship between 'family' members, or if the adult has broken a law.

    Illegal immigrants who bypass or otherwise skip reporting to the ports of entry are breaking the law and subject to criminal penalties, just as when American citizens break the law and are separated from their children. The children separated from their criminal parents, are being treated very well by the DHS.

    Is Mrs. Bush aware of American citizens who are forever separated from their children because they were killed by an illegal? The lax policies of previous administrations has resulted in a monumental volume of dead American children, killed by illegals. Does Mrs. Bush want to continue ignoring the forgotten man?

  • Sen. Markey Blasts ‘Zero Tolerance’ Immigration Policy

    Markey says just in the last two weeks more than 600 children have been separated from their detained parents who are now being taken into federal custody.

    Should not Markey be looking into how and why so many parents were detained? Should not he be recommending ways to stop the illegal flow of aliens?

    What happens to children when their American parents are detained? Are they not separated? Is Markey demanding that we treat non-citizens better than our own?

    Is Markey recommending that we have open borders? Is that not un-American?

    Mueller filed a superseding indictment against Manafort earlier, accusing him of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

    Is Mueller simply baiting Trump to fire him?

    To me, Mueller, like gangster thugs, is attacking Manafort to taunt Trump. Mueller has used that tactic time and again.

    Corrupt GOPe and Democrats are behind this attempt to unseat a duly-elected sitting President.

    If Stormy Daniels rented out certain body parts to a client, and then got paid in full for her service, how could she legally demand more money?

    Is that not blackmail or extortion?

    Why is she not in jail?

    Unless, of course, you want to generate any of that electricity within sight of the state’s tony coastal communities.

    EPA and others fail to talk about the downside of wind turbines. They only work when there is wind. They destroy birds and bats. They are not economically viable. No one wants to study the aesthetic pollution caused by the large, ugly wind turbines.

    With all the money wasted on solar projects that are not economically viable, one could really work on making fossil fuels environmental friendly, do you not agree?

    Fossil fuels are solar energy put in the bank many years ago. They work 24/7.

    Republican strategist Steve Schmidt said Sunday that President Trump “beclowned himself” and disgraced the United States at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit.

    I wish that people like Republican strategist Steve Schmidt would do their homework, and maybe seem like they know more than the average citizen.

    Everybody knows that the EU is primarily socialist and more like the do-nothing Democrats than accomplished leaders.

    Perhaps Schmidt does not know that the EU countries have been taking advantage of the USA for many years. How does Schmidt think that we should rectify that unfair imbalance? Maybe it is too detailed for him. Maybe he is benefiting from the status quo.

    Send him back to the "drawing board." Send him to a reputable journalism school. He is wasting our time.

    Steve Schmidt himself is the real clown!

    Bill Maher said that everyone should have herpes and HIV, and the audience applauded him. Michale Savage said that liberals have disordered minds.

    How is that different from what he said about a recession? Is it more stupid? Is it less stupid? Or, is what he said totally unrelated to his mental illness?

    In an op-ed published by The Washington Post on Saturday, Dick Thornburgh expressed concern about what he called "unfair attacks on the Justice Department" perpetrated by some lawmakers and the White House.

    Did Dick Thornburgh explain exactly what he means by "unfair attacks on the Justice Department?"

    Many people have been following Mueller's special counsel, and have a great deal of knowledge. What is unfair and why is Dick Thornburgh calling it such?

    Is he just taking potshots typical of GOPe, or is there substance in his concerns?

  • Iowa court finds Medicaid ban on transgender surgery is unconstitutional

    An Iowa court has determined that the state’s ban on Medicaid coverage for medically necessary surgical care for transgender residents is unconstitutional.

    Is the Iowa court medically challenged, biased, or both?

    People with gender confusion have a mental issue that is treatable without surgery. Gender reassignment surgery should be illegal because it mutilates the patient.

    Surgery to treat a serious mental disorder is insane.

    What happened to Iowa?

  • Giuliani says Trump shouldn't testify because 'our recollection keeps changing'

    Giuliani made the comment when asked about fellow Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow's contradictory remarks on whether the President weighed in on a statement put out about his son Donald Trump Jr.'s controversial 2016 meeting with Russians at Trump Tower.

    It is illogical and irrational to subpoena a sitting president. The precedent would result in endless demands and subpoenas of sitting presidents. If the tables were turned you would be told this over and over again by the MSM, PBS panel discussions, journal articles, erudite professors, etc.

    That would NEVER happen with a Democrat. This angry cabal of Democrats are taking advantage of the gentle and weak-wristed eRepublicans, by keeping themselves in the limelight with nit-picking concerns about collusion and how something was or was not said.

    It is nice to see the Republicans like Rudy show what Manning up is all about.

    All the Mueller team has accomplished is spending money, keeping the never Trumpers and Trump haters appeased.

    Enough of that! We all have better ways to spend our time. I am surprised and disappointed that so many Republicans let this happen at all; they look weak and foolish.

  • NASA full of 'fear and anxiety' since Trump took office, ex-employee says

    Nasa’s output of climate change information aimed at the public has dwindled under the Trump administration, with a former employee claiming “fear and anxiety” within the agency has led to an online retreat from the issue.

    There may be "fear and anxiety" among those who have a weak understanding of science and technology relating to climate change. There are many NASA employees and contractors who understand that the science associated with climate change is far from settled.

    There are many NASA scientists interested only in getting the best and most accurate data to study climate change.

    NASA, like other agencies, has been infiltrated by leftists who hate mankind and want to blame them for global warming. What about global cooling?

    And for much of that troubled relationship, it has been hard to grasp why so many conservatives would sell their political souls to a man who wallows in racist stereotypes, questions federal judges’ legitimacy, flogs the free press, undermines Madison’s constitutional norms, declares war on America’s intelligence community, and attacks Justice Department and FBI leaders he appointed for refusing to kill special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation.

    A competent and objective journalist would look into each and every claim attacking President Trump.

    Does Trump really wallow in racist stereotypes?

    Does Trump really question federal judges’ legitimacy?

    Does Trump unjustifiably flog the free press?

    Does Trump really undermine Madison’s constitutional norms?

    Has Trump unjustifiably declared war on America’s intelligence community?

    Is there a basis for Trump's attacks on certain Justice Department and FBI leaders?

    The writer must get his negative information about Trump from CNN. The writer appears to be wallowing in his hysterical hate for Trump, because he accepts without question anything negative. Is that really journalism?

    President Trump has been proven correct in all of his judgements and claims, from being spied on during the election to every one of the baseless accusations.

  • NFL stars 'threaten to sit out games until Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid are signed by new teams'

    Several NFL stars are reportedly considering not playing until Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid are signed by teams.

    It looks like professional football has become a platform for social justice.

    It is time to simply shut down the NFL, and start over in a few years. We do not need the NFL as a platform for social justice.

    We already have the newspapers and CNN, NBC, CBS, and ABC. They all provide social justice all the time. The stadiums can be used for social justice initiatives.

    Who wants to watch football when the players have other priorities on their minds? Give them a few years to work it out.

  • Dem Ted Lieu Slams Melania, Says Separating Immigrants From Their Children Isn’t A ‘Be Best’ Policy

    Separating children from their parents, however, is most definitely not a “Be Best” policy, according to Ted Lieu, a Democrat currently serving as the U.S. Representative for California’s 33rd congressional district.

    Why does Ted Lieu want to give illegal immigrants more rights than American citizens?

    If American citizens commit a crime and are incarcerated, their children are taken away from them.

    Does Ted Lieu want to return to making Americans last, and keep them as the forgotten men and women?
