  • Vanity: Some NV Trump Voters need to sue county, state, and federal level for a Full State Recount

    The select 5 county partial recount going on presently based on Reform Presidential Candidate Roque De La Fuente's initiated action for a recount I would think would constitute grounds for an Nevada Trump voter to sue for a statewide Nevada recount based on the Bush vs. Gore year 2000 Supreme Court ruling , as precedent, which showed that the voters of the other counties can't be discriminated against. Here is a link to the story on the 5 county partial recount being conducted in Nevada:

    Because of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, the year 2016 has been dubbed by some as the Year of the Revolution. That moniker may be a stretch, but these are exciting times for those of us who’ve long advocated political decentralization, and want a President who all but guarantees to shake up the system in an anti-establishment sort of way. If there was ever a system that needed a good shaking up in an anti-establishment sort of way, it’s ours, and not a minute too soon. While Brexit and the election of Donald Trump are good things in...

    Trump continues to validate our best instincts about the man, and our greatest hopes. Not only does he know how to keep his friends close and his enemies closer, but he knows how and who to pick in a way to utterly confound and bewilder the liberals and Demo-gogs. Both Mnuchin, exec at Goldman - Sachs to Treasury and Ross, finance Billionaire, to Commerce. These guys have been huge political contributors,Trump has just robbed the Dems Blind with these appointments. Plus they know what they're doing, and they know the score and they understand Donald Trump.

    Noticing that the vitriol against conservatives and their leadership has biome entrenched and permissible. Lot of moral preening and leftist activities to continue to make conservatives fearful or embarrassed to support the causes they believe in, not because there is a problem with the ideas and causes, but because conservatives are fearful of physical harm or property damage. This needs to stop and conservatives need to seize the narrative, they way that Trump did throughout the pre-election cycle. For example Barney Frank ( and why is he still above ground with a microphone?) just claimed that Trump thought that Scalia...

    I am combining the salient points of an article by Ren Jander, yesterday, on the Pennsylvania recount with other information in an attempt to squelch some of the perpetual hysteria here. It seems some people move the goalposts no matter what happens, or what Trump does. First, key points of Jander's article: "THERE WILL BE NO RECOUNT IN PENNSYLVANIA: Jill Stein Perpetrating Election Fraud." Everything you've been reading about a possible recount of the 2016 Presidential Election in Pennsylvania is wrong. There will be no "recount" in Pennsylvania. Book that. It is not speculation. It is legal fact. The broad...

    11/28/2016 1:25:25 PM PST · by Javeth · 32 replies
    I was having a conversation on the weekend with a politically mixed crowd, and an interesting conclusion emerged: 1. EVERYBODY in the room--Republican, Democrat, Independent-- hated the H1B and L1 guest worker (cheap labor) visa programs and agreed that they've become incredibly corrupt and abused by the likes of Disney, Facebook, the Chamber of Commerce and other crony capitalists and politicians, and had to go. Even many of the Dems, some of whom (gag) had voted for Hillary, harshly criticized Obama for his negligence on H1B enforcement and were so fed up that they'd vote for Trump in 2020 if...

    Hillary has opened the door to questioning the steps taken to trust the results of a presidential election. This extraordinary action creates an opportunity for bipartisan security measures be enacted to preserve election integrity. Namely, a NATIONAL DATABASE of American citizens. Apparently no such database exists, but it could be created and maintained. We can then crosscheck against the state voter registration state by state. Those who have voted illegally in the 2016 November election can be indicted for committing a felony. Close loopholes. One citizen, one vote is a fundamental core concept. We must preserve that basic human...

    Renowned CNN foreign correspondent 'worried' by current climate for journalists in U.S. CNN chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour suggests Donald Trump's words about the media worry her "very much." One of the world's best known foreign correspondents told CBC's The Investigators that her "blood ran cold" when Donald Trump tweeted out that those who were protesting in the streets after his election win had been "incited by the media." Amanpour says several statements made in recent months by the U.S. president-elect — in which he has variously described journalists as "despicable and dishonest," "crooked" and "liars" — can be the...

I've seen reports of this opposition to Romney reported constantly on Fox News in the past week or so. But what NOBODY seems to be talking about is Romney's glowing statements about Trump back in 2012, when he thanked Trump for endorsing his ill-fated presidential run: Mitt Romney praises Donald Trump I would be opposing Romney based solely on his aggressive anti-Trump actions and statement during the election. But if Trump should decide that Romney's...

The bickering and griping from the purists and professional conservative class who are out to prove that Trump is not a "true conservative" will go on forever, but they quickly forget that he has already saved (conserved) our nation from a one-way trip to a third-world Marxist/fascist cesspit under the rule of the godless Hillary Clinton. Let us not forget that Trump single-handedly (well, with a little help from legions of irredeemable, deplorable bigots, racists and assorted ne'er-do-wells) defeated the GOPe, the Bush...

    The Wall Street Journal recently posted that Mitt Romney is emerging as the leading candidate to be Secretary of State in the Trump administration.

    In my view, they do it as nothing less than a form of brainwashing and psychological manipulation. When these students feel traumatized that their political ideology has been rejected by the election’s outcome, and they are being coddled with all kinds of drastically therapeutic treatments, they are no longer capable of tolerating viewpoints other than their own. They’re being trained to believe that the world must come to an end whenever they don’t get their way, therefore the ideas of tolerance and diversity that those on the left pretend to believe in are completely thrown out the window. This treatment...

Now Obama and the Democrats have lost all three plus lost control in more state legislatures and governorships than in a long time.
