  • Trump townhall: "Dictator for only Day 1", "It's not Me, It's Us."

    Donald Trump just clinched it with a couple of comments which have been reported since tonight's townhall. "It's not Me, It's Us."This struck me like a hammer. BOOM ! It's a winning campaign theme which 1) deflates the narcissistic meme and 2) pulls everyone in who smells the rat, realizing that DjT is truly on our side. "I'll only be a dictator on Day 1"In other words: the insanity stops now !

    Former congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming is the poster child of a Republican establishment abandoned by the party’s far-right base. Now, she’s billboarding what may come next: In an interview with CBS aired Sunday, Cheney lamented the extent to which the Republican Party had been “co-opted” by Trumpism and said she feared the potential of a vengeful Trump presidency in 2025. “One of the things that we see happening today is a sort of a sleepwalking into dictatorship in the United States,” Cheney said. Cheney’s refusal to accept former president Donald Trump’s false claims that the 2020 election had been...

    The White House has announced it plans to use a cold-war era law to ease supply chain issues that the administration argues are contributing to higher inflation – a key electoral challenge to Joe Biden’s re-election chances next year as polling consistently suggests voters are not buying his Bidenomics pitch. In a statement, the White House said Biden will use the Defense Production Act to improve the domestic manufacturing of medicines deemed crucial for national security and will convene the first meeting of the president’s supply chain resilience council to announce other measures tied to the production and shipment of...

    resident Joe Biden and China's Xi Jinping are planning to meet again following their four hour talk in San Francisco that cemented agreements on fentanyl and defense contacts, the White House said Monday. National security spokesman John Kirby told reporters another high stakes meeting was on the agenda as he defended Biden's comment last week where he stood by calling Xi a 'dictator.' The comment did not go over well in China's state-run media, although Xi Jinping gave a speech to American CEOs Wednesday immediately after his sit-down with Biden where he declared China is 'ready to be a partner...

    A current trope from democrats today is about the threat of Donald Trump being reelected and morphing into a dictator. Hillary Clinton even went so far as to like Trump to Hitler. Hillary Clinton compares Trump to Hitler while warning he could win again: 'Hitler was duly elected'— Fox News (@FoxNews) November 10, 2023It's all pretty dismally ironic, especially as the bitchy harridan was the architect of the Russian dossier.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a Monday address that it is “not the right time for elections” in Ukraine as the end of his five-year term approaches. Zelensky argued in his Monday video address that Ukraine should not have to deal with elections as it continues to attempt to fend off Russia, which invaded Ukraine in February 2022. He previously had not ruled out Ukraine holding a presidential contest next year, though elections are currently suspended in the country under martial law. And finally, the waves of any politically divisive things must stop,” he said Monday. “We must realize...

    Bolivia’s ruling Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) party ousted the president of the country, Luis Arce, during a meeting on Wednesday and declared former President Evo Morales its candidate in the 2025 election – officializing a growing rift between the incumbent and the party’s former leader. Arce became president in part as a result of Morales resigning from the presidency. After serving 13 years, Morales chose to vacate the presidency and flee the country in the aftermath of the 2019 presidential election, which he claimed to have won. Morales was on the ballot despite being term-limited out of serving again because...

    Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley on Friday retired with an impassioned speech that took a swipe at former President Trump, proclaiming that the U.S. military does not swear an oath to a “wannabe dictator.” Trump last week accused Milley of “treason” in going behind his back to reassure his Chinese counterpart near the end of his term, suggesting that the Army general should be put to death. “We are unique among the world’s militaries. We don’t take an oath to a country. We don’t take an oath to a tribe. We don’t take an oath to a religion....

He argued that “everything that is happening with Trump is the persecution of a political rival for political reasons.” “That’s what it is,” the Putin...

    Oh, but you do, you do. Michelle Lujan Grisham got steamed yesterday when the Bernalillo County Sheriff declared her order suspending the US Constitution unlawful and refused to enforce the New Mexico governor’s edict to arrest people carrying firearms in an otherwise lawful manner. Sheriff John Allen, who apparently attended a civics class or two more than Lujan Grisham, went public with his refusal yesterday, and further stated that he’d tried to warn Lujan Grisham that she didn’t have the authority to issue the order: [snip] “I don’t need a lecture on constitutionality from Sheriff Allen: what I need is...

    A senior research fellow told Just the News why he thinks now would be "prime time" excuse for Biden to activate his emergency powers. Legal and Policy experts -- on the left and right -- are concerned that such powers may be "undermining democracy." Last week, President Joe Biden said during an interview that his administration "already" declared a national emergency over climate change, before starting to clarify that he practically—not actually—had. CNN called the statement "incorrect" but there is widespread speculation he will declare one soon. Citing anonymous White House sources, The Washington Post reported in July that Biden...

    President Joe Biden appears to be facing increasing demands to declare a climate emergency, like the one declared for the COVID-19 pandemic that had a devastating impact on the country, warns a top advocate for the U.S. oil and gas industry. "They're leaning to that direction," U.S. Oil and Gas Association President Tim Stewart recently told Just the News. "If you grant the president's emergency powers to declare a climate emergency, it's just like COVID.” Stewart also said such a declaration would give the president “vast and unchecked authority to shut down everything from communications to infrastructure." He said infrastructure...

    resident Biden should find ways to defy the rulings of "MAGA justices" for their "gravely mistaken" constitutional interpretations, law professors urged in a letter on Wednesday. Harvard law professor Mark Tushnet and San Francisco State University political scientist Aaron Belkin penned "An Open Letter to the Biden Administration on Popular Constitutionalism" to respond to what Biden has called "not a normal court" following high-profile cases. "We urge resident Biden to restrain MAGA justices immediately by announcing that if and when they issue rulings that are based on gravely mistaken interpretations of the Constitution that undermine our most fundamental commitments, the...
