    Who Really Rules The United States? by Tyler Durden Feb 17, 2017 10:30 PM 0 SHARES Submitted by Matthew Continetti via FreeBeacon.com,How bureaucrats are fighting the voters for control of our countryDonald Trump was elected president last November by winning 306 electoral votes. He pledged to "drain the swamp" in Washington, D.C., to overturn the system of politics that had left the nation's capital and major financial and tech centers flourishing but large swaths of the country mired in stagnation and decay. "What truly matters," he said in his Inaugural Address, "is not which party controls our government, but whether...

    President Trump approved Tuesday disaster relief for California, putting an end to speculation that the bad blood between the White House and Gov. Jerry Brown would jeopardize the state’s plea for emergency aid. The Federal Emergency Management Administration announced that the assistance would be provided “due to the emergency conditions resulting from the potential failure of the emergency spillway at Lake Oroville Dam beginning on February 7, 2017, and continuing.” Mr. Brown, a Democrat who called Mr. Trump a “fraud” during last year’s presidential campaign, made the request for federal help Friday after heavy rainstorms inundated Northern California, flooding creeks,...

It appears we’re going to have an old folks’ home. We’ve got [Elizabeth] Warren; she’ll be 71. Biden will be 78. Bernie [Sanders] will be 79.” Old. Unfortunately, the graying of the democrat party is really starting to become painfully obvious. Dementia is insidious. It creeps up on you surreptitiously.

    Democratic voters are sending a clear message to their elected officials in Washington: Stop Donald Trump at all costs. A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll of 2,070 registered voters, including 740 self-identified Democrats, shows that just 34 percent of those Democrats said they want their party’s elected officials to find ways to work with the new president. A 56-percent majority said Democrats in Congress should stick to their principles, even “if that means blocking all legislation or nominees for government posts.” The survey, conducted Feb. 2 through Feb. 4, is instructive, as Trump and Republicans begin to plot their legislative plans...

The GOP voted along party lines to require proof of citizenship in order to vote -- something that courts have said is unlawful at the federal level. Not only that, but they argued for the bill using the same lies about “voter fraud” that Donald Trump has been using. But we know the truth: Voter fraud is a myth, and Republican laws that claim...

As David Brock attempts to position himself as a leader in rebuilding a demoralized Democratic Party in the age of Trump, many leading Democratic organizers and operatives are wishing the man would simply disappear.

    Democrats begin the Donald Trump presidency in sad shape. They lack a clear power base, they’ve got no distinct national leader, and party brokers are searching for a formula to counter the new Republican-dominated government and figure out how to win again. It’s a curious and dispiriting position for a party that has led the national popular vote six out of the past seven presidential elections. Yet Hillary Clinton lost the Electoral College count, while Republicans maintained their largest House majority since 1928 and kept control of the Senate — with 2018 advantages that offer the potential of a Senate...

DisruptJ20 “rejects all forms of domination and oppression, particularly those based on racism, poverty, gender and sexuality, organizes by consensus, and embraces a diversity of tactics,” the site reads.

The Detroit results, with more votes than voters in 70% of the precincts, show that someone clearly hacked the vote tallying equipment. And, that someone, the hacker, was -- the Democrat party.

But he said it should've been done long ago. Far from a full-throated endorsement of Obama's actions, Ryan's statement condemned the commander in chief for eight years of what he considers "ineffective foreign policy" that left the United States more vulnerable than it was when he took office in 2009.

    n the fall of 1957, the Soviet launch of Sputnik I was a deflating moment for the United States, a blow to national pride amid broad fascination as to when man would send an artificial object into Earth orbit. Months later, the newly formed NASA began winnowing 500 test pilots down to the seven Mercury astronauts, presented to the public in April 1959. The ensuing year brought even more urgent curiosity: which nation would be the first to send a man on that first step toward the stars? In April 1961, another blow. The Soviets beat us again as Yuri...

    Pittsburgh City Council on Wednesday advanced legislation that would prohibit licensed mental health professionals from subjecting minors to “conversion therapy,” the practice of attempting to change a person's sexual orientation. The legislation is intended to protect gay and transgender people younger than 18 and was a response to the election of Republican Donald Trump and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as president and vice president, said council President Bruce Kraus, a South Side Democrat. Kraus, who is gay, called conversion therapy “a form of soul murder.” “I think it's obvious if anyone has followed national news there's clearly been a change...

    Federal prosecutors are seeking a sentence of 17 to 21 years for a former Pennsylvania congressman convicted of a racketeering scheme that included a string of illicit financial moves to cover up an illegal $1 million campaign loan. Eleven-term Philadelphia Democrat Chaka Fattah is scheduled to be sentenced Monday, the denouement of a 30-year political career that took him on Air Force One and to a seat on the powerful House Appropriations Committee.

    A legislative aide with Asperger's Syndrome endured so much humiliation in Brooklyn City Councilman Vincent Gentile's office — including decapitated teddy bears left on his desk — that he had to quit, a $10 million lawsuit alleges. Michael Bistreich, Gentile's former legislation and budget director, claims he was "subjected to degrading and humiliating discrimination because he is autistic" during his nearly 2˝ years with the pol. The discrimination was "perpetrated by Council Member Gentile and his senior staff, including (former chief of staff John) Mancuso," the lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Manhattan Supreme Court, charges. Bistreich, for example, disclosed "he identified...

    Democratic donors stung by Hillary Clinton’s upset loss in the presidential race feel like they just set their money on fire. The sore feelings are a huge problem for the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which is trying to rebuild its image and reinvigorate a defeated party in time for challenging midterm elections in 2018. It’s also a worry for top liberal activists as they prepare for war with President-elect Donald Trump and a GOP Congress that is hell-bent on rolling back President Obama’s accomplishments. Many Democratic donors still feel burned by the party’s 2016 election losses and what they see...

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump’s unlikely ascension to the White House. Ryan and his supporters had argued that the Democrats' grim performance in this year's elections — the latest in a string of cycles planting Republicans firmly in the majority — was a clear signal that Pelosi's leadership strategy has failed to attract the broad coalition of voters required to return the Speaker's gavel to the Democrats' hands.
