  • The Democrats’ ditch is only getting deeper

    Washington Post ^ | March 22, 2017 | by Ed Rogers
    Democrats in Congress are digging themselves a ditch that keeps getting deeper. There’s no good fight to be had on Judge Neil Gorsuch, they’re getting steamrolled on repealing and replacing Obamacare, and their base has lurched to the far left, fully outside their grasp. The result? An out-of-touch leadership that can’t stop babbling. And for all the Trump administration’s miscues, Democrats haven’t laid a glove on the president. They couldn’t appear any weaker. Democrats are clearly lost, with no sense of direction. Their efforts to oppose the GOP agenda have failed, and their base knows it. Writing in the Hill...

    Democratic assemblywoman Deborah Glick of the New York State Assembly has introduced legislation that would fine people who do not vote, and has been promptly criticized on the constitutionality of the measure. Glick's legislation proposes a $10 fine for those who fail to vote without providing a "valid excuse," but she does not specify what a valid excuse would be, the New York Daily News reports.

    The notorious "Speedway Bomber" served 17 years in prison for his crimes but is now a left-wing activist Convicted terrorist bomber Brett Kimberlin was revealed this week to have worked with shady Democrat operative Alexandra Chalupa in a campaign to discredit President Trump. “That work culminated in a Washington, D.C. meeting in December between” Chalupa, “Speedway Bomber” Kimberlin, and a South Africa-born Israeli man identified as Yoni Ariel, the Daily Caller reported.

    As the Senate Judiciary Committee was hearing from witnesses for and against Judge Neil Gorsuch, his Supreme Court nomination was delivered a critical blow: Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said he would join with other Democrats in filibustering Gorsuch — a move that would require at least 60 senators to vote to end debate on the nomination.

    On January 20, the New York Times published a story on wiretapping of Trump insiders. In the print version, the headline was "Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides," although you're going to have to squint to read the acknowledgment of the print headline at the bottom of the page.Still, if you look through the actual article, you'll find this paragraph: The F.B.I. is leading the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks but have found no conclusive evidence of...

    Democrats may be ready to throw in the towel in opposing the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to be associate justice of the Supreme Court.  According to Politico, several sources are reporting that a group of Democrat senators may be willing to allow the Gorsuch confirmation to go through on the Senate floor in exchange for a pledge from Republicans not to get rid of the filibuster.  Their thinking is that if President Trump has another opportunity to name a Supreme Court justice, they want the option of blocking any nominee. Another vacancy would be far more consequential, as it...

    The campaign by Democrats on the Federal Election Commission to regulate the internet, from Twitter and Facebook to Drudge, is back after some liberal commissioners threw in the towel amid GOP opposition. Seizing on an exit report card of the agency by ex-Commissioner Ann Ravel, the left is complaining that the internet isn't being regulated for political content and spending, but should be.Using the "altFEC" twitter account, one of several "alt" sites set up by government workers in agencies resisting the new Trump administration, the proponents reference Ravel's critical report.

    U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy appeared to be trying to support abortion during his questioning of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch on Wednesday. It may not have been intentional, but the Vermont Democrat’s testimony actually reinforced a pro-life point about how abortion often is used to exploit women. Leahy brought up a personal experience he had before Roe v. Wade with an abortionist who botched a young woman’s abortion and nearly killed her, along with her unborn child. That abortionist, he said, was Nazi-trained. The Washington Examiner reports: He discussed a case in which he, as a state’s attorney in...

Of course, Moore made his point in a most engaging way on Instagram, using a red light — specifically, that of sentient computer HAL 9000 from “2001: A Space Odyssey” — to call on Democratic leaders to respond with...

    The appointment of University of Southern California Professor Raphael Bostic as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta garnered praise from some leading Democrats in Congress. Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, top Democrat on the Senate Banking Committee, hailed the appointment, calling it "a long overdue injection of new blood into the governance of monetary policy. Up to now there has been no one to represent a gay black perspective on interest rates, banking, and the economy. Dr. Bostic's ascendance to this prominent position plugs a gap that has stigmatized Fed policy for over 100 years." California's Rep. Maxine Waters,...

    Democrats are flailing around in a desperate effort to block Judge Neil Gorsuch’s appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. They are still sore over what the New York Times editorial board claimed was the “Senate Republicans’ outrageous and unprecedented blockade of Merrick Garland” last year. Vengefully seeking to delegitimize Judge Gorsuch’s nomination, the Senate Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee are using much of their time trying to trip up Judge Gorsuch with “gotchas,” as well as caricaturing the man and his record. In the process, the Democrats appear petty and partisan, while Judge Gorsuch is acquitting himself with eloquence,...

    Barack Obama's name is revered in his home state. But the Illinois House has rejected making his birthday a state holiday. Legislation to make the 44th president's Aug. 4th birthday a state holiday fell six votes short Tuesday. Chicago Democratic Rep. Sonya Harper said it would honor a man who adopted Chicago as his home and served in the Illinois Senate. But Rep. Steven Andersson of Geneva suggested it be honorary. The Republican floor leader said even Obama wouldn't want the cash-strapped state to give state workers another paid day off. He noted that Tampico native and 40th president Ronald...

    Maskirovka is the Russian use of deception to confuse, mislead and camouflage oneself from the enemy, and is employed at all levels from tactical operations in war to global, strategic developments. Once upon a time senior members of the US government created a Russian fairy tale. It is nothing more than a total fabrication, a spider’s web of lies that continues to occupy the news cycle, waste tax payer dollars and threaten the Presidency of Donald, J. Trump. In fact, it may very well be labeled the greatest story ever told – that President Trump, members of his cabinet and...

For the first time, Comey confirmed that the FBI had opened a probe into the Trump campaign in July, the same month he called an unusual news conference to announce the agency had finished its investigation into whether Hillary Clinton mishandled classified information — and three months before he scrambled the White House race a second time by announcing that...

Fresh off the heels of her brand’s record-breaking sales month of February, Ivanka Trump’s company was just slapped with a major class-action “unfair competition” lawsuit.

Neiman Marcus, Gilt, ShopStyle, and the Home Shopping Network, quickly followed suit. Meanwhile, TJMaxx and Marshalls instructed employees to trash all Ivanka Trump signage and mix her merchandise into the racks. And Sears and Kmart said...

    My latest Counter Propa article addresses the vapid groupthink that cost Democrats the election and catapulted Donald Trump into the presidency. Focus only on Trump, they say. Trump’s victory is an anomaly and he’ll be impeached soon, believe smart Democratic strategists. Repeat the same Democratic playbook of circling the wagons and ignoring blatant hypocrisy, while addressing only Trump’s flaws. This way Democrats will win, even though they lost miserably in 2016 utilizing the same failed strategies. Trump’s executive orders should be the only focus, even after Democrats literally elevated Trump into the White House. Keith Olbermann just blamed Jill Stein...

    PHILADELPHIA — The Democratic Party has a God problem. And over the last couple of decades, as its base became more educated, less religious and more urban, this problem has only grown. Some of this has to do with lower church attendance in cities versus rural areas, and the Democratic Party’s increasing reliance on urban voters. Some of it is the divisiveness of social or cultural issues like abortion and gay marriage. And the divide has seemingly sapped Democrats’ ability to communicate to religious Americans. Especially if those people of faith are white, according to Brad Chism, a longtime and...

    There may be no one with whom partisans on both sides of the political divide have a more conflicted relationship with than FBI Director James Comey. During the 2016 election cycle, he served for partisan liberals and conservatives as, at varying points, both savior and antagonist. Observers suffered whiplash watching as the FBI director evolved from upstanding and forthright public servant to political hack seemingly overnight. Today, while few will permit themselves to say it aloud, Democrats depended on Comey to corroborate their nagging suspicion that either Donald Trump or his associates collaborated with Russian officials. It was, thus, more...

The more radical strain, which led hundreds of Sanders delegates to walk out of the Democratic National Convention in protest last summer, is still present on the left and emboldened by the loss of Hillary Clinton and their belief that "Bernie would have won."

If you’re a Democrat, that means MSNBC is like a warm media blanket on a cold snowy night.

    In their drive to resist President Trump, Democrats so far have put a lot of political eggs into one basket: immigration. Their strident defense of immigrants past, present and future certainly satisfies the base -- but it’s a strategic mistake that can only lead to electoral disappointment. Let’s recall why Trump won in November. He is the first president since 1876 to lose the popular vote by more than 2% and still win an electoral college majority. He did so by winning five swing states – Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin – with less than 50% of the...

    From MSNBC politics shows to town hall meetings across the country, the overarching issue for the Democratic Party’s base since Trump’s victory has been Russia, often suffocating attention for other issues. This fixation has persisted even though it has no chance to sink the Trump presidency unless it is proven that high levels of the Trump campaign actively colluded with the Kremlin to manipulate the outcome of the U.S. election — a claim for which absolutely no evidence has thus far been presented. The principal problem for Democrats is that so many media figures and online charlatans are personally benefiting...

    Folks....forget the polls, forget the pundits, forget the "fake news" Obamabot/Clinton/Democrat Party media!!! Hating POTUS, Donald J. Trump is no way to go through political life in the USA!!! All you had to do, is watch the DJT rally last night in Nashville, TN, and you would clearly get the picture!!! Hating anyone or anything is neither a political philosophy or plan!!! Of course, the Democrat Party and its media, stand alone isolated from any hint of it being a functional political party!!! Gone are Barack Hussein Obama, gone are Hillary Clinton...Obama and, his wife now hide out in the...

    U.S. Capitol Police are getting “the kind of help they need from other sources” in their criminal investigation of five Pakistani former information technology aides to dozens of House Democrats, according to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. “I wont speak to the nature of their investigation, but they’re getting the kind of technical assistance they need to do that, this is under an active criminal investigation, their capabilities are pretty strong but they’re also able to go and get the kind of help they need from other sources,” the Wisconsin Republican said at the end of a late Wednesday...

    Trump wins again, but now faces policy challenges. The ignominious collapse of the Democratic claims and insinuations that Donald Trump was improperly connected to the Russian government has de-escalated the Democrats’ campaign against the president — from a frenzied assault seeking impeachment and removal for a cause to be named later, to guerrilla war. Russian collusion has vanished down the same deep hole as the charges of sexism, racism, and a will to autocracy. It is widely believed that press reports in the New York Times and other outlets accustomed to receiving and amplifying anti-Trump leaks from within the administration...

    Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch praised anti-Trump demonstrators for “the courage they have shown by their willingness to bleed and shed blood for the progressive cause. Some have died in this opening phase of the fight against the fascism that has gripped our nation since January 20th.” As if in response, leftist Antifa agitators assaulted pro-Trump demonstrators in Berkeley last weekend—burning a “free speech” sign, stealing MAGA hats, and bloodying noses. Lynch hailed the attacks as “a promising sign that the revolution won’t be constrained by bourgeois morality. Instead of cowering in fear, socially aware youths are cracking heads in...
  • Disagreeing With Democrats Is Now Considered Un-American

    Patriotism: Democrats have become so fond of attacking Republicans and their policies as "un-American" that we wouldn't be surprised if they call for a congressional committee to investigate them. It wouldn't be the first time Democrats have done so. Although wrongly attached to Republican Sen. Joe McCarthy, the House Committee on Un-American Activities (also known as HUAC) was entirely a Democratic creation. The committee got its start in 1938, when Democrats outnumbered Republicans in the House by a margin of 334 to 88. And over the course of HUAC's entire 37-year existence, Republicans controlled the House — and chaired the...

    Sen. Sherrod Brown, the top Democrat on the Senate Banking Committee, said Bostic's appointment "is an historic step forward that is long overdue. In its century of existence, the Fed's ranks have lacked the kind of diversity — of race, gender, background and ideas — that reflects the wide spectrum of Americans' experiences and economic realities." Rep. Maxine Waters, the top Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, also issued a statement applauding the appointment of Bostic as the first black and first openly gay regional Fed president.

    Nigerian welfare scam Jonn Lilyea | March 13, 2017 | 25 Comments Bobo sends a link to the story of an Arlington, Virginia woman, Helen Agbapuruonwu, who has been collecting welfare benefits for the last six years, while her husband, Fidelis Agbapuruonwu, was earning a seven figure income as a lawyer with the DC firm of Mayer Brown. She’s been arrested while folks believe that Fidelis, a Nigerian immigrant, has “fled the country and is somewhere in Africa.” Police say a six-month investigation into Helen Agbapuruonwu, 41, found that the mother of four had collected benefits like food stamps and...

    President Donald Trump’s offer to agree to continued federal funding of Planned Parenthood if the organization would stop performing abortions was firmly rejected by Dawn Laguens, Planned Parenthood’s executive vice president and chief brand officer. “We are the largest single provider of abortions in America,” Laguens pointed out. “Abortion is our largest single activity. It is the main thing our clientele knows about us. For us to abandon this service would be like stabbing our customers and supporters in the back. No amount of money will divorce us from our values.” Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards echoed Laguens’ remarks, emphasizing...
