  • Jason Kander Says Democrats Accidentally Divided the Country (Good analogy)

    The Ringer ^ | December 9, 2016
    Remember Jason Kander? He’s the former senatorial candidate from Missouri who went viral after running a campaign ad that featured him putting together an assault rifle — blindfolded. He ended up losing, but he made the race more competitive than it was expected to be, falling to Republican incumbent Roy Blunt by just 3.2 percentage points. Now, he joins Keepin’ It 1600 to talk with Jon Favreau and Dan Pfeiffer about why he thinks the Democrats’ closing argument to Americans was ineffective and where the party must go from here. Listen to the full podcast here. This transcript has been edited and...

    Of all those whose predictions were dashed by this years presidential outcome (Trump is headed toward a major loss his Oct. 19 headline blared), few have been more exercised than the Washington Posts E.J. Dionne (white identity politics and male self-assertion triumphed he railed the day after). Yesterday, in a piece titled America will soon be ruled by a minority, he joined the chorus now condemning the undemocratic Electoral Collegein the name of the Founders, no less, the very men who created it. Ever the good progressive, he fails to appreciate the role states were meant to play in ordering...

    Megyn Kelly, the pretty face of Fox News, blames Donald Trump for Americans not trusting the mainstream media anymore, saying “they need us,” and it’s “dangerous” we don’t believe them anymore. She also threw Breitbart under the bus as well, as she’s demanding more than $20 million dollars a year to stay at Fox News.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EuZZgRChHQ
  • Tomi Lahren Should Replace Megyn Kelly In The 9pm Slot At Fox News (Vanity)

    I think it's safe to say most people are growing very tired of Megyn Kelly's weekly drama queen rubbish. Thought I would float this idea that I hope that catches fire. Tomi Lahren's views on line are in the millions. She could probably easily be number one on Fox News if her show is like most of her videos online at the 9pm hour. Tomi is still very young "firecracker" and has a good future if she can grow in my opinion.

    Looking back, it is clear to Jim Cramer that the world changed on Election Day in 2016. "You may love the results or hate them, but one thing is for certain, just getting the darned election over with turned out to be a big deal," the "Mad Money" host said. If President-elect Donald Trump delivered on all of his pro-business promises, then many of the strong moves of the stock market could be justified, he added. "What is really dawning on people right now is exactly how frozen our economy was by this endless election and how unthawed it seems...

In the course of the run-up to the 2016 election, he cried in panic that a Trump victory would absolutely result in Trumps rounding-up of all us Jews and throwing us into concentration camps to die. His lock-step Democrat insistence that Trump is a Nazi was immune to fact or reason.

    Here’s an excerpt from the Wheat Belly Cookbook about modern high-yield, semi-dwarf wheat, what I call the “Frankengrain” because of the extensive and bizarre changes introduced into this grass by geneticists and agribusiness. (Even though a cookbook, I tried to make the Wheat Belly Cookbook a standalone book that discusses the background on why and how the Wheat Belly lifestyle yields such unexpected and extravagant health and weight loss successes. For this reason, the first 90 pages of the cookbook reiterate many of the Wheat Belly basic concepts.)From the Wheat Belly Cookbook: Wheat encapsulates a fundamental dilemma of our technological...

    The Los Angeles Times editorial board says the Donald Trump backed, NRA push for nationwide concealed carry reciprocity is bad for public safety, calling it absurd and dangerous in a piece published Saturday. Lawmakers have four bills drafted that would make concealed carry reciprocity a federal law allowing gun owners licensed to carry in one state, to be able to carry in any other state. The Times calls it an effort to dismantle state and local gun-control laws, driving nationwide concealed carry laws to the lowest common denominator by allowing people to get carry permits in states with less...

You can see the dog trying to escape, wanting nothing to do with the kangaroo. The big buck kangaroo releases the dog when the owner gets close but then moves in to try and attack the human.

Investigators said Savells boyfriend told them he has instructed her that...
