  • Mitch McConnell: Release the Hounds!

    We know what's going on. And they know we know what's going on. This is a power struggle. This is the ruling oligarchy against the people. They cannot abide anybody THEY don't approve of getting into their precious Senate. For the Senate is their bulwark against conservatism. But their bulwark is weakening, and their minions' influence is waning. "We know who have abused us...but the time is coming when they shall lick the dust, and melt away." - Sam Adams
  • Deduction targeted by GOP used by tax filers in most states

    AP via The Sacramento Bee ^ | November 19th, 2017 | Unattributed
    ATLANTA - A popular deduction targeted in the GOP's overhaul of the tax code is used by more than a quarter of all filers in a majority of states, including many led by Republicans where some residents eventually could see their federal tax bills rise. The exact effect in every state isn't known, in part because of differences in the Senate and House versions of the bill. But the change to the deduction for state and local taxes could alter the bottom lines for millions of taxpayers who itemize. Residents in high-tax, Democratic-led states appear to be the hardest hit....
  • California’s Dianne Feinstein Tries Again to Reinstate Assault Weapons Ban

    Times of San Diego ^ | 11/18/17 | Chris Jennewein
    Sen. Dianne Feinstein has re-introduced a bill to ban the sale of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. Feinstein was joined by 22 other Democratic Senators in the wake of recent mass shootings in Texas and Nevada. The bill was introduced just days before the most recent mass shooting, which occurred Tuesday in Northern California. “We’re introducing an updated assault weapons ban for one reason: so that after every mass shooting with a military-style assault weapon, the American people will know that a tool to reduce these massacres is sitting in the Senate, ready for debate and a vote,”...
  • Video Of Vikings Standing In Respect To Anthem circa 1973

    In this video, you will see the Minnesota Vikings standing at attention and the fans all singing the national anthem. It was Dec 1973, and the Vikings were set to play the Cowboys for the NFC Championship. The Vikings would win and go on to their 2 Superbowl where they lost to the Miami Dolphins. Grant always had the Viings doing this, from the first day he took over as coach in 1967. As for Kaepernick, back in April, Bud Grant didn’t mince words when asked about his actions. “He’s trash,’’ said Grant. “But this is a free country....

    American Thinker ^ | November 19, 2017 | Earick Ward
    Today, we are increasingly faced with a contrived reality. A mirage. Images shone on a wall (television screens, cell-phone, laptops) portraying what our captors wish for us to believe (is reality). What is truth? Let me suggest that truth, increasingly, is a byproduct of force. Are any important matters reasoned true today, or are we stuck in a battle of messaging wills? In this, let me suggest, the Left are winning, as we’ve abandoned reason, and are left with, whatever message can be advanced enthusiastically enough, to run roughshod over the other. As Goebbels stated; “If you tell a lie...
  • Everyday gun violence is startling, with racial and urban disparities in Wisconsin ( barf alert)

    --(snip) "There is even more to the story: CDC data also show that within our nation’s cities, black Americans are, on average, eight times more likely to be killed by firearms than those who are white. The rate of death by gun homicide for black people exceeds those among whites in all 50 states, but there is tremendous variation in the magnitude of this disparity. In 2015, a black person living in Wisconsin was 26 times more likely to be fatally shot than a white person in Wisconsin. At the same time, a black person in Arizona was “only” 3.2...

    Justice Neil Gorsuch gave the most significant public address of his tenure on the nation’s highest court Thursday when he addressed the Federalist Society’s annual dinner, recently named in honor of the last man to hold his seat: Antonin Scalia. The newest Supreme Court justice took square aim at one of this year’s Federalist Society Convention’s main themes: the “administrative state,” the unelected mass of executive agency staff that actually creates most of the rules and regulations by which Americans live. Resistance of the administrative state’s growth and overreach is a driving force in the emergence of populist-nationalism and the...

Everyday that passes Judge Moore trolls Gloria Allred for her refusal to hand over the yearbook to be examined by a third party.
  • No Victory Dance Yet for Trump After House Passes Tax Bill

    When the GOP House voted to repeal Obamacare in May, President Donald Trump invited supporters to the Rose Garden to celebrate with him and to pat themselves on the back for making history in record time. Thursday, when Republicans passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act there was no talk of orchestrating a public victory lap. In the fall of his first year in office, Trump has come to understand that passing the halfway mark is no guarantee you'll cross the finish line. Yes, there are 52 Republicans in the Senate -- as well as a GOP vice president who...

    Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has been raking in the campaign cash ever since controversy exploded last week over allegations of his predatory behavior toward teenage girls in the 1970s. “Donations have been pouring in from Alabama and from all over the country in an unprecedented way,” Moore campaign manager Brett Doster told The Post on Saturday. Moore’s campaign raised $500,000 in three days last week and ramped up its online fundraising efforts, Doster said. The embattled Republican collected more online donations between Nov. 10 and Nov. 15 — the first six days after the scandal broke — than in...
  • Moore Supporters See Through Shenanigans, Donate Beaucoup Dollars

    11/18/2017 4:55:17 PM PST · by cotton1706 · 38 replies ^ | 11/18/17 | Andrew West
    Judge Roy Moore of Alabama represents the next wave of President Trump’s “America First” attitude, and that has Washington’s swamp dwellers in a tizzy. President Trump, as unconventional as he certainly is, has initiated a kind of revolution in our nation. His background, nearly devoid of politics, has made him the perfect candidate to saunter down into the Washington swamp and clean house. While some of these denizens of the murky Deep State are fairly easy to spot, others, such as RINO shills Mitch McConnell and John McCain, have spent a great deal of time honing their camouflage to blend...

    Before the Washington Post story broke last week, Roy Moore was almost a lock to win at 89 percent in PredictIt’s Alabama Senate race prediction market. After the allegations surfaced, Moore’s odds dropped to 59 percent that day. He remained a slight favorite over Doug Jones, who also saw a significant bump on the news, until Monday when a fifth woman came forward with allegations against Moore. As of Monday afternoon, for the first time in the race, PredictIt traders had Doug Jones in the lead at 47 percent to Moore’s 38 percent. Moore has since regained some ground though...
