    Chuck Schumer, with his demands that he just presented to Trump, is a nasty, evil, slimy, slick, dysfunctional, demagogic, socialist, communist, fascist, illiberal, big-government, social-democrat, un-God-ly, in-need-of-Saving, troublesome, curmudgeonly, loudmouthed, monkey-wrenching, anti-capitalist, totalitarian, lying, propagandistic, cynical, party-hacking, urchin-like ruffian

  • You don't need 60 votes to pass the budget in the Senate

    60 votes is necessary to pass with a FILIBUSTER-PROOF margin. 51 is all that is required to PASS THE BUDGET. So, McConnell, GET IT PASSED. If the Democrats want to shut down government, then MAKE THEM FILIBUSTER ON THE FLOOR LIKE WE USED TO. I, for one, will tune in to hear about why they decided to shut it down, 24/7 until they run out of Senators.

    Wealthy exodus to escape new tax rules worries California Democrats By Adam Ashton January 18, 2018 12:33 PM Updated 10 hours 36 minutes ago The Republican-backed federal tax bill flipped the tables on a never-ending question for California politicians: Will high taxes lead the state’s wealthiest residents to flee the Golden State for the comparable tax havens of Florida, Nevada and Texas? Republicans reliably raise that alarm when Democrats advocate for tax increases, like the 2012 and 2016 ballot initiatives that levied a new income tax on very high-earning residents. But now, with the federal tax bill cutting off...

    Why do we constantly talk about race and immigration? Race and immigration? It never ends. That's all we talk about. We have allowed the Democrats, liberals, cultural marxists and their Republican suck-ups to set the terms of this national debate. Why do we never talk about balancing the budget or eliminating our $100 trillion federal debt? To me, this is far more important. Why don't we put off the race and immigration debate until we balance the budget? How can we even consider giving illegal immigrants government money when the government is completely broke? Repeat after me---OUR GOVERNMENT IS COMPLETELY...

    Today, the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tom Perez, admitted that reforming the Democratic Party was going to be far more difficult than he had imagined. I was so excited. I immediately and naively assumed that his idea of reforming the Democrat Party was purging the party of all the marxist kooks, hardcore violent leftists like Black Lives Matter and Antifa, anti-Free Speech college professors and administrators, disavowing the whole hateful “white privilege” mindset and condemning everyone who professes it on campuses and elsewhere, the Islamist lovers, while embracing free-market capitalism as the greatest wealth-producing machine in the history...

    What if they shut down the government, ordering all NON-ESSENTIAL personnel to stay home, and while they're out, President Trump orders their desks, phones and computers removed and the locks changed? Isn't that basically what we've been fighting for all these years? Drain the swamp, baby.

  • Political Correctness, Fake News and the NFL Viewing Decline.

    Various (internal links), compiled by Dangus
    Maybe you don't give a damn about football, but it's presenting a fascinating look at the utter destructive power of political correctness and fake news. There's likely some data that conservative apologists might find useful. Looks like NFL viewership declined another 12% this year. That's on top of the 9-10% decline last year. 22% in two years... of a viewing audience of half of America! This would seem to be the most massive product boycott in history. Desperate to lie to advertisers AND discourage boycotters, the media has famously found other explanations. The first explanation was the ratings collapse was...

    President Trump is very much at the top of his game. He took The Swamp to the cleaners on immigration with swift and stunning aplomb. Two days ago, the President announced that he would sign any immigration reform bill that The Swamp could put together. His supporters were utterly despondent, convinced that once again they had been been betrayed. Talk-show hosts and pro-Trump commentators went on a day-long rampage, heaping scorn on the President who ran and won on his hard-nosed stance against illegal immigration. Instead, President Trump lured the Swamp into a humiliating, bipartisan trap. Assuming the president at...

  • Conservative challengers to Cantorize pro-amnesty GOPe RINO traitor Roger Wicker in MS primary?

    01/11/2018 12:51:41 PM PST · by Javeth · 4 replies
    Does anyone in or nearby Mississippi know if a conservative challenger is rising to kick out that pro-amnesty RINO scum Roger Wicker for the 2018 Senate race? If not, I'll make the case here on why it's so urgent to Cantorize this backstabbing quisling sellout to the conservative cause and American people. As reminder, Wicker was one of the GOPe RINO traitors who voted for that treasonous 2013 Obama comprehensive immigration reform bill that would have amnestied 20 million illegals and flooded the USA with job-killing h1b visas and Muslim refugees. I just got back from a long run of...

    I am in awe of the patients and the self-restraint that President Trump has shown in the past year. Just think about it. 10 days after the election, President Trump was alerted that he had been wiretapped by the FBI and his political enemies. Most of our reactions would be to scream and make public accusations immediately. Instead, Trump remained silent for nearly 5 months. Then finally, he tweeted that he just discovered about it. Trump's accusation was immediately responded with ridicule. Leftists and those in the media called him a conspiracy nut. Yet, remained silent. Trump said nothing as...

    A VERY STABLE GENIUS President Trump is quick to tout his intelligence, his wealth, and his accomplishments. Today, he called himself a "very stable genius." At least half of America thinks he's an obnoxious blowhard, even crazy. I think there is a method to his madness. Millions of American kids have been brainwashed by the public education system and modern culture to believe that their intelligence and accomplishments, like those of their parents, are a function of "privilege." Something to be ashamed of. Diligence and motivation have nothing at all to do with it. Students are now being tested across...

    I did breakfast early this morning at McDonalds near a large ATLANTA institution construction site with hundreds of workers on a cold Saturday morning. McDonalds was crowded with them. The women behind the counter were obviously family of some of the construction workers, all macho. All construction workers were Hispanic. Almost all were Mexican. Many were obviously recent immigrants. A significant number were teenagers. Some appeared to be as young as 14. The teenagers might qualify as Dreamers. (I have experience since 1962 developing this skill of recognizing them. Were these young teenagers here on Saturday morning on a take...
