  • Trump Is Right (Gay Paree)

    American Rattlesnake ^ | February 25, 2017 | Gerard Perry s
    Of European cities which have been irrevocably transformed by mass migration from the Muslim world, Paris does not rank at the top of the list. A quarter of its population isn’t Muslim, like the gang-infested, crime-ridden former port city of Marseille, nor a fifth, like the jihadist hotbed of Roubaix. However, the outraged reaction of Francois Hollande, the lame duck prime minister of France, to President Trump’s remarks at CPAC is laughable when you consider the fact that officials in Paris have had to erect an 8 ft. wall of reinforced glass in order to protect that city’s most recognizable...

    The issue with Republicans in California has been the long-standing habit of going liberal on certain issues and inflaming the base Mid-year 2016, the Sacramento Bee trotted out their same tired line about Prop 187 and the long-lasting damage it caused to the California Republican Party. The media narrative loves to demonize conservatives as anti-immigrant bigots who pushed this agenda so far in 1994, which in turn caused the GOP brand to suffer.

    Because he’s Hitler, or something We’ve heard about the unethical, unhinged psychiatrists and psychologists who diagnose President Donald Trump as a crazy person. Well, now psychoanalysts’ offices are being flooded with bed-wetting, paranoid left-wingers who stay up at night expecting to be dragged away by the Trump Death Squads. These patients complain about panic attacks, insomnia, and an inability to concentrate all because Trump-is-Hitler-or-something.

    As liberals are exposed in all their fury, more Americans will come to realize that the voters made the right decision in electing Donald Trump as our nation’s 45th President. Across the country, angry mobs of protesters are flooding town hall meetings of GOP Senators and Representatives. The liberal media is enjoying the spectacle and emphasizing the supposed grassroots anger of average Americans. Among many issues, the attendees have been screaming about Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and her reform agenda, phony “Russian” connections to the administration, efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, plans to dismantle onerous EPA regulations and the...

    Dear Dr. Charles Krauthammer:Today you likened President Trump to Vladimir Lenin, in that both used the expression “enemy of the people”, a grotesque smear. In order to get there you overlooked a huge distinction: Trump is telling the truth and Lenin was lying. Trump is defending himself from lies; Lenin was excusing himself from murders. You invalidate your analysis by omitting critical distinctions. By being nasty to Trump, you make yourself small. The entrenched establishment (of which you are a member), not only made the Trump Presidency possible, but also made it necessary. Why don’t you get on the constructive...

    President Trump's Executive Order rescinding President Obama's Executive Order commanding federally funded institutions to permit individuals to use the bathrooms of the sex they imagine themselves to be sparked outrage from the gender-confused and their advocates. Illinois Democratic gubernatorial aspirant J.B. Pritzker used Trump's action to solidify his credentials to the deranged base of the Party by advocating that "everyone should use the other gender's bathroom as a protest against Trump's tyranny." Pritzker's ploy was criticized by Illinois State Rep. Will Guzzardi (D-Chicago) as "missing the point of the Obama edict. Knowingly using the bathroom of the 'other gender' contradicts...

Participants included health care unions and patients. Dr. Paul Song told KTXL, “If we make the system more efficient by having one payer, we can save billions of billions of dollars a year. Plus, we don’t really need to put any more money in - the money is there.” Bill co-author Senator Toni Atkins of San Diego says Californians shouldn’t have Washington dictate how healthcare is provided to its citizens.

    Cosmetics brand Lush, popular among young girls and hipsters for their “bath bombs,” is launching a new anti-President Trump hair care product. According to Cosmopolitan, Lush announced plans to release a hair treatment called “Yuge,” a play on the way Trump pronounces the word “huge,” alongside an “orange faced, tiny-handed man” at their 2017 Lush Summit. The “Yuge” product is reportedly a hot oil treatment that will “add volume and softness to your hair.” Cosmopolitan notes the product is not currently available as it is being tested on humans in the U.K. (Lush opposes animal testing).

    Choosing your poison As we all know, Democrats lost. To employ a misquote that they seem to love, they lost “bigly.” In fact, a combination of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders ended up decimating their party. Overreach, a misguided agenda, and insular thinking have left them at their lowest level of power in several generations. So, they’re trying to figure out what to do next.

Vice President Mike Pence has addressed CPAC several times, but I suspect last night’s speech - his second major address since inauguration day - will be long remembered.

In an nbcmontana.com article, Governor Bullock stated that allowing individuals to decide whether they are eligible to carry concealed weapons is absurd: Bullock noted in his veto letter that he had rejected two bills identical to Harris' measure in past sessions. The governor says the idea of allowing individuals to decide for themselves whether they are eligible to carry concealed weapons is absurd.

Tom Hayden, a Democrat with a well-known and lengthy history of communist sympathies. The perspective Sen. Nguyen offers is first hand. Her family escaped communist Vietnam and came to the United States in search of freedom in 1981 during Ronald Reagan’s presidency.

    A hypocritical NBCNews.com article argues that America is a “flawed democracy” that can be fixed by copying the “World’s Best Democracy” — Norway. In “Norway Is the ‘World’s Best Democracy’ — We Asked Its People Why,” NBC pretends to provide an objective look at why the Economist Intelligence Unit — based in London, where the country’s parliament actually considered banning America’s president — downgraded the U.S. to a “flawed democracy” and rated Norway the best.

It is an issue that involves both tradition and Constitutional law.

And while the Soviet Union has gone the way of the dodo, its glorious socialist legacy is still up for the picking. One of these unparalleled Soviet achievements is the use of psychiatry to silence dissent and delegitimize political opposition, allowing the KGB to lock up dissidents in mental hospitals nicknamed psikhushkas.

The president is issuing executive orders and formulating new legislation to fulfill his promise to slash regulations, increase America’s energy output and fund infrastructure projects. He has convinced Carrier, GM, and other companies to keep jobs in America and induced foreign enterprises Samsung and Alibaba to consider bringing jobs to the U.S. Not surprisingly, since Trump’s election optimism about the economy has soared, companies seem more willing to hire and...

The United States is a democratic republic.” Not satisfied with that justification of semantics and nuance, I continued to explore and discover the difference between U.S. republic and democracy and I’m still exploring it today.

    Sorry Dems, it's not working 80% is a yuge number. In polling terms, that’s almost astronomical. 80% of the American people almost never agree on anything. Yet that’s the number of respondents who want to end sanctuary cities in favor of local law enforcement reporting illegals to the feds. That’s the top line of a new Harvard–Harris Poll, which contains some very good news for Trump and some very bad news for Democrats.

    It can't happen! It won't happen! Please please please . . . Sean Hannity gave a litany of statistics the other night about crimes committed by illegal immigrants in this country. In response, Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera complimented Sean on his statistics, and then immediately pivoted to what the TV news stories would look like if the administration was rounding up 11 million “undocumented” immigrants in this country. Geraldo’s pivot was pure speculation. The administration’s latest directives on immigration say nothing about rounding up 11 million people.

    A comatose nation has been revived and is undergoing physical therapy in preparation for return to a normal life. It’s going to be quite a ride, America, so fasten your seatbelt and prepare for takeoff! For the last eight years the nation underwent what was sometimes called fundamental transformation. I call it the deconstruction of America, a process that actually began over a hundred years ago, but was rapidly accelerated by the mass influx of leftist socialists into all levels of government during the Obama administration. It had even progressed - digressed, actually - to the point where the Republican...

    A coup d’état waiting to strike that is breath-taking in scope, and jaw-dropping in both conceit and deceit Now that he’s been unceremoniously dragged off the high horse of his presidency, revolutionary renegade Barack Hussein Obama has returned to full-scale community organizing with a waiting ‘Civilian National security Force’, he promised back in 2008 that would be “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded as the U.S. military” at his command. In little more than a month after the much celebrated inauguration of America’s 45th, the troops wait to welcome back the master who assembled them: 250 Organizing...

    In opposing the godless and bloody French Revolution, Edmund Burke, the father of modern conservatism, concluded that, "I should therefore suspend my congratulations on the new liberty of France, until I was informed how it had been combined with government; with public force; with the discipline and obedience of armies;…with morality and religion;…with peace and order; with civil and social manners. All these (in their way) are good things too; and, without them, liberty is not a benefit whilst it lasts, and is not likely to continue long. The effect of liberty to individuals is, that they may do what...

    As a Brit, it has often baffled me as to the direction that gun control is heading in the U.S. Britain and many other nations have firsthand experience of what happens when stringent gun control laws are brought in: Gun murders rise sharply. If you want the full statistics with tables, check out the report by the Crime Prevention Research Center, here. Here are some key findings: UK gun ban introduced: Homicide rate increased dramatically. Ireland gun ban introduced: Homicide rate increased dramatically. Jamaica gun ban introduced: Homicide rate increased dramatically. Can you see a pattern?

    Mental health professionals say they’re seeing more instances of a type of depression they call “post-election stress disorder” among Democrats who are still upset over Donald Trump‘s victory. . . . “There was a big missed opportunity in naming it ‘Post-Election Stress Disorder,'” Mast joked on Fox News. “I would have preferred they name it ‘Post-Inauguration Stress Disorder.’ That way they could have called it ‘PISD.'” Mast, an Army veteran, is a double amputee who lost both his legs and a finger in Afghanistan. He feels bad for depressed liberals who say they have post-election stress disorder, but hope they...

    I have been monitoring the local WalMart to see if the .22 bubble shows any sign of deflating.  A heavy winter visitor presence has returned to Yuma.  I have not seen any .22 long rifle in WalMart for months. This afternoon was different.  I stopped at the store, and made my usual inspection of the ammunition counter.  There were thousands of .22 LR cartridges for sale, most of them in bulk packs.  Bulk packs are the preferred purchase of people who are buying the ammunition for resale, or simply to stock up.  All of the .22 ammunition there was...

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- Senate Democrats are speaking out after a bill was recently introduced that would drastically change how state professors are hired. Republican Senator Mark Chelgren of Ottumwa's proposed bill would freeze professor hiring at state universities until the faculty is balanced in terms of political ideology. This means, for example, a professor registered as a Democrat would not be hired unless the amount of Democrat and Republican faculty members at the school is within 10% of each other.

    President Donald Trump pledged Tuesday to combat bigotry and unite what he called a "divided country" after wrapping up his first visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. "Today and every day of my presidency I pledge to do everything I can to continue that promise of freedom for African-Americans and for every American," Trump said, calling his tour "a meaningful reminder of why we have to fight bigotry and hatred and intolerance." "We're going to bring this country together. We have a divided country that's been divided for many, many years, but we're going to...
