The Seven Nuttiest Things Nancy Pelosi Has Said This Year

Leave a comment

H/T Town Hall.

San Fran Nan is nuttier than a squirrel turd.

The Republicans need to hang this crazy woman around the DemocRats necks like an Albatross.

Sure, she’s always been a little nutty, but over the years House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has gradually shifted from liberal feminist icon to everyone’s batty “a little bit out of it” aunt who knows just enough words-about-political-stuff to be dangerous.

So in the spirit of hoping Pelosi is still up for fighting for her old speaker’s gavel come November, here are the five craziest things Nutty Nancy has said in 2018 alone. (Why just this year, you ask? Because I only have one column, not a book!)

“A nuclear bomb in your pocket.”

Pelosi told reporters on Wednesday that it “pays to have a nuclear bomb in your pocket” when negotiating with President Trump, apparently referring to his recently smashingly successful summit with North Korea Kim Jong Un.

“So, again, we all hope and pray that diplomacy works, for sure,” Pelosi stammered. “But this is deadly serious. And I guess the one thing I would say is they — they complained about the Iran agreement. And they have what? You know they come home with this and say, ‘Oh, it’s all over.’ But I’ll tell you this, it’s a real lesson to any country, if you’re going to negotiate with Donald Trump it pays to have a nuclear bomb in your pocket, because that is what will increase your negotiating power.”

Um, what?

The rest of the statement is just as illegible, a sentiment shared by many including Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro, who tweeted, “It’s time for this woman to call it a day and go home.”

But Pelosi isn’t likely to go gently into that San Francisco night. No, she has designs on getting that speaker’s gavel back, even if it costs her party the midterms.

“Hip hip horay, unemployment is down. What does that mean to me in my life?”

Yeah, this one was so crazy even Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a flabbergasted, “She actually said that.”

Here’s the quote: “Unless we have a very significant increase in wages and bigger paychecks, we are going to increase the frustration of America’s families because they’ll be saying, ‘Hip hip hooray, unemployment is down. What does that mean to me in my life? I need a bigger paycheck.’ That’s the apprehension American families have had for a while.”

“Doggie doo”

When asked in January about the Republican plan for short-term CHIP funding, Pelosi compared it to … eating doggy poop.

No, I’m not kidding.

“This is like giving you a bowl of doggie doo, put a cherry on top and call it a chocolate sundae,” said Pelosi. “This is nothing.”

A creative comparison to be sure, from a woman who regularly looks like she’s just tasted the stuff.

The “spark of divinity” in MS-13 members

Who could possibly forget this gem from last month in response to Trump’s “animals” characterization of MS-13.

“Some of us who are attracted to the political arena, to government and public service” believe that “we are all God’s children” and “there is a spark of divinity among every person on earth, and we all have to recognize that as we respect the dignity and worth of every person,” said Pelosi, insisting that since we have “divinity in us” we need to recognize the same in MS-13 members, or something.

“So when the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, ‘These aren’t people, these are animals,’ you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person?”

Hey Nancy, how about you put your money where your mouth is and hire a few of these “divinity” sparked MS-13 angels to help you around your mansion when you retire?

Speaking of divinity…

The “hypocrisy” of people of faith for agreeing with immigration law enforcement

Remember that time, just last week, when Holier-Than-Thou-Pelosi tried to criticize Attorney General Sessions and other people of faith as hypocrites for wanting law and order at the border?

“The very hypocrisy of the Attorney General to quote the Bible, the hypocrisy of all people of faith in our country not to clamor for what the administration is doing to end — whether it’s to deprive the dreamers of the respect they deserve or whether its taking babies away from their mothers and fathers,” said Pelosi. “For this administration to pose as people of faith and pose as people who care about family and children is of a height of hypocrisy that knows no bounds.”

First of all, for a liberal Dem like Pelosi to even think of bringing up faith and Christianity as a bludgeon is pretty hilarious on its face. Not to be all judgy, but this woman wouldn’t know a Christian from a Hare Krishna. How about the unborn, Friar Nancy? Do they deserve protection too? How about the criminal victims of illegal aliens? How about simply obeying the law?

So, we’re to believe Nancy doesn’t believe in any parents of minors going to jail or prison, no matter what they do?

Uh, nevermind, don’t answer that…

“Strong employment numbers mean little…”

“May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch,” Pelosi wrote in a statement early this month, referring to the strongest job numbers yet under the Trump administration.

Put it this way, if every person in America had a mansion and a $100,000 per year job, Pelosi and other liberals would STILL complain about it if it happened under President Trump. Seriously, does anyone in their right mind honestly think this woman wants what’s best for this country?

Crumbs…”

Ah, the ubiquitous “crumbs” comment. You thought I was going to forget that one didn’t you? Nope, I didn’t forget, and hopefully millions of midterm voters won’t either. Unless, of course, you want Madame Let-Them-Eat-Cake to be third in line for the presidency come January 2019.

“In terms of the bonus that corporate America receives versus the crumbs they are giving to workers to put the schmooze on is so pathetic,” Pelosi said in January, referring to news reports about employees getting bonuses as a result of recent GOP tax cuts. “And I would hope with their big advantage of bringing home at a very low rate that they would invest in infrastructure but our experience has been they will seek dividends and buy-backs. It is insignificant.”

Later, she doubled down:

“There’s a little mouse trap who’s got a little piece of cheese on there and there’s a mouse about to take it and that’s called the middle class. And around it are fat cats, they look a lot like elephants but anyway, around there. And that’s the thing. Get this little thing and we get this big bonanza. You get the crumb, we get the banquet.”

Thing is, Nancy Fancy Pants, $1,000 may be chump change to you, but it means a hell of a lot to those of us who work for a living. But keep talking, and we’ll keep mobilizing the vote.

The New York Times reports that “growing numbers of Democratic candidates” are beginning to see Pelosi as “politically toxic” and are “pledging to vote against her as their leader.” For the country’s sake, let’s hope the Democratic wing-nut wing prevails on this one. As hapless as some in our own party tend to be, we’re going to need all the help we can get!

Are Federal and State Prosecutors Out of Control?

1 Comment

H/T Town Hall.

Beyond any doubt Federal and State prosecutors are out of control.

In the middle of the night last summer, FBI agents raided the home of Paul Manafort, President Trump’s one-time campaign chairman, and seized documents prosecutors assumed Manafort would not voluntarily surrender even though he had cooperated with all prior document requests.

This spring, the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York, acting on a tip from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, made a surprise appearance at the office of Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and removed thousands of documents.

It appears law enforcement officials were not necessarily looking for documents directly related to the ongoing investigation of whether the Trump campaign worked with Russian agents to defeat Hillary Clinton, but rather at possible crimes wholly unrelated to the campaign, presumably to put the squeeze on Manafort and Cohen to turn on Trump in the Russia probe.

Even after sharp rebukes by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, prosecutors tried to make the case they were entitled to hang onto the confidential information they had seized, some of it in pre-dawn raids at the homes of innocent people. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to even hear the prosecutors’ rationale.

This is not a partisan issue. Twenty years ago, a meandering and open-ended investigation came up dry with regard to Bill and Hillary Clinton’s role in the Whitewater land development deal but unearthed Bill Clinton’s affair with an intern. The seamy impeachment saga that ensued left the country with wounds that have not healed.

Indeed, prosecutorial overreach has been a topic of bipartisan concern in Congress for years. The open-Internet activist Aaron Swatz committed suicide in 2013 after being threatened with decades in prison if he decided to fight charges that he used MIT’s computer network to illegally download millions of academic papers. Lawmakers from both parties said federal investigators were out of line but such tactics were “business as usual” in the view of legal scholar Orin Kerr.
Politicized prosecutions have become a growing problem. Prosecutors press cases they cannot make for political reasons, then politicians eventually beat the various raps, but not before their image and political careers lie in tatters.

It’s not just Manafort, Cohen and the John Does of Wisconsin. It’s also former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, who was convicted of exchanging political favors for contributions from a businessman but had his conviction overturned when the Supreme Court determined he had taken no official acts on the businessman’s behalf.

And it’s ‘Dollar Bill’ Jefferson, the former congressman from New Orleans, who served five years in prison after $90,000 in cash was found in his freezer, only to have the conviction thrown out last year because a judge determined the evidence against him was insufficient.

Prosecutors also seem to be running amok in a case playing out in U.S. District Court in Phoenix that involves alleged bribes by a utility company to a regulator to secure utility rate increases.

In that case, one of the prosecution’s key witnesses is Kelly Norton, an unindicted co-conspirator who acknowledged that she cut a deal with prosecutors in order to avoid prison time. The deal required her to testify against her ex-husband, Jim Norton, one of the defendants, even though defense attorneys contend she is bitter and still seeks revenge for the couple’s divorce in 2015 before Christmas.

Kelly Norton said that at the direction of her ex-husband, she set up a phony consultancy and hired the wife of the regulator. But the utility regulator’s wife, who also is a defendant, has provided a 1099 form that shows she was a legitimate employee with the consultancy.

Another witness for the prosecution, Thomas Broderick, has acknowledged he is being paid $60,000 by the government to consult on the case and, during his testimony, stumbled and revealed he had spoken to another prosecution witness about the case. How can prosecutors acting in good faith put such witnesses on the stand?

A few years ago University of Tennessee Law Professor Glenn Reynolds published a paper, “Ham Sandwich Nation: Due Process When Everything Is a Crime.” The reference to the quip that a good prosecutor can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich seems as apt as ever.

American Medical Association Calls for Confiscation of Guns and Ammo, Universal Firearm Registration

3 Comments

H/T Town Hall.

The AMA needs to clean up their own backyard by helping stop doctors that over prescribe opiods and help stop the stonewalling of malpractice cases.

On Wednesday, the American Medical Association approved an expansive list of “common-sense” demands for new gun control measures, including proposals to ban the sale and possession of “all assault-type weapons, bump stocks and related devices, high-capacity magazines, and armor piercing bullets.” These gun control guidelines were approved by the AMA’s House of Delegates, a forum of the medical organization’s member physicians that meets twice a year to vote on medical and political policy recommendations.

The lengthy list of gun policy changes also includes bans on the sale of firearms and ammunition to those under 21 years of age, prohibitions on the ownership and unsupervised use of firearms by those under 21, and the establishment of a national gun registry for all firearms and a gun licensing system for gun owners.

Additionally, the AMA’s list of gun control proposals contains several measures that are reportedly intended to combat domestic violence, including a proposition to create a new legal procedure by which “family members, intimate partners, household members and law enforcement personnel” can petition courts to confiscate firearms from people “when there is a high or imminent risk for violence.” Based on the AMA’s official blog post about their gun control proposals, this gun confiscation procedure does not appear to involve typical due process legal rights where the gun owner in question can defend himself or herself in court, nor is there any explicit definition for how “risk for violence” would be determined by a judge, leaving open the possibility that people without criminal convictions could be subject to having their guns taken away.

This problem with definitions also extends to the AMA’s core proposals, especially its calls for confiscating “high-capacity magazines” and “armor piercing bullets.” Although high-capacity magazines are typically thought of as those that can hold more than ten rounds, the NY SAFE Act, which was passed in 2013 after the Sandy Hook school shooting, defined high capacity magazines as those that can hold more than seven rounds and banned their sale.

More worryingly, because there is no definition of what qualifies as an “armor piercing bullet,” the AMA’s proposals can be reasonably interpreted as a call for banning practically every type of rifle ammunition in existence given that (with the exception of extremely small calibers like .22 LR) almost all rifle rounds can pierce Kevlar-based body armor, the standard type of ballistic protection used by law enforcement agencies worldwide. Thus, if Congress or any other legislative body actually followed through on the AMA’s vague proposal, everything from smaller rifle calibers like .223 and .243 Winchester all the way through other common hunting rifle rounds like .270 Win., .30-06, .308 Win., or .444 Marlin could be banned and confiscated en-masse by the government.

According to the AMA’s official blog post about their gun control proposals, AMA Immediate Past President David O. Barbe was ecstatic about the House of Delegates’ approved list of gun confiscation measures, lauding them as necessary steps to combat the “public health crisis” of gun violence in the United States:

“People are dying of gun violence in our homes, churches, schools, on street corners and at public gatherings, and it’s important that lawmakers, policy leaders and advocates on all sides seek common ground to address this public health crisis,” said AMA Immediate Past President David O. Barbe, MD, MHA. “In emergency rooms across the country, the carnage of gun violence has become a too routine experience.

“Every day,” Dr. Barbe added, “physicians are treating suicide victims, victims of domestic partner violence, and men and women simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. It doesn’t have to be this way, and we urge lawmakers to act.”

STATES Act May End Federal War on Marijuana

1 Comment

H/T Town Hall.

With all of the medical benefits of Marijuana it is time to stop the Federal War on it and let the states decide.

Last week, a bipartisan coalition of House and Senate members introduced legislation to end the federal war on marijuana. Unlikely allies – conservative Sens. Cory Gardner (R-CO) and liberal Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) introduced a bill that would allow the citizens of the states to control decisions on medical and adult use marijuana.  In our highly partisan America there are still a handful of issues that can bring together the right and the left.

The problem with marijuana laws today is twofold. First, there is a conflict of laws between the feds with strong laws prohibiting any use, possession or sale of marijuana versus states that have either allowed medical or adult use marijuana within the state’s border.   Second, there is a conflict of politics between the old school mentality supporting the “War on Drugs” embodied by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and opposed by many Republicans including Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), former Speaker of the House John Boehner, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and President Donald J. Trump. One would think that the attorney general would follow the policies promoted by the attorney general’s boss, the president, yet Sessions seems to revel in angering the one man who can send him to the private sector with a single tweet.

The federal Controlled Substances Act (CSA) treats marijuana as a highly dangerous drug with heavy federal penalties for violating that law.  Right now, federal law hits a person with a 10-year mandatory minimum for possession of 1,000 KG of marijuana no matter if you are in a state that allows it or not.   The idea that somebody would be locked up for growing marijuana under a mandatory sentence seems ridiculous when states are passing law after law permitting this exact activity.

When you look at how the states treat marijuana, the trend is clear that the states are far more accepting of different levels and circumstances of marijuana use. Forty-six states, Puerto Rico, Guam and a number of tribes have laws that permit or decriminalized marijuana or marijuana-based products according to a U.S. Senate fact sheet.   Medical marijuana laws are the most popular with a Quinnipiac poll from 2017 indicating 94% of Americans support them.  When you look at polling on what Colorado has done by legalizing adult use marijuana, according to a 2017 Gallup poll, 64% of Americans support full legalization.

The conflict between federal and state law can’t stand. The federal government should respect the traditional police powers of the states that allow them to handle crimes within the borders.  Federalism, and the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, allows the powers not specifically delegated to the federal government to reside with the states and the people.  There is no specific federal authorization for the regulation of marijuana, therefore it might finally be the time to let the states take back the police powers of regulating marijuana.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to go back to the days when a marijuana joint got you locked up with hardened violent criminals for a year or two.  The Wall Street Journalreported on June 10, 2018 that “Attorney General Jeff Sessions vowed to use federal law to get tough on marijuana, announcing in January he was ending Obama-era protections for the nascent pot industry in states where it is legal. Six months into his mission, he is largely going it alone.”  His prosecutors have not brought any federal charges and he has inspired supporters of legal marijuana when he revoked the so called “Cole Memo” earlier this year that had provided some protections for state operators of legal marijuana businesses.  The WSJ also reported that President Trump indicated he was likely to support federalism in the marijuana bill.

The bill is simple. The STATES Act, “Strengthening the Tenth Amendment Through Entrusting States Act,” amends the CSA and allows states and tribes that comply with a few basic protections and removes the application of that law to persons in those states or members of those tribes who are acting under the color of state marijuana laws.  The federal law would exempt compliant marijuana transactions from trafficking laws and would remove industrial hemp from the list of controlled substances. There are restrictions on the states, including measures to forbid those who are under 18 from participating in manufacturing and 21 from purchasing adult use.  This would revolutionize the treatment of marijuana and allow individuals to work in the marijuana industry without fear of being locked up.  With an untenable conflict between the federal law and state law, the STATES Act provides the states the power to opt out of the CSA.

When you can get conservative Cory Gardner who is in charge of getting Republicans elected to the Senate and probable Democratic presidential candidate, and progressive hero, Elizabeth Warren on the same page on any issue, then you have done something extraordinary. This idea is long overdue and we can hope the broad bipartisan support leads to some movement on this issue this year.

Can the GOP Establishment Stop Being Idiots Just Once?

Leave a comment

H/T Town Hall.

The GOP Establishment has been stuck on stupid for too long to change.

The Congressional GOP, in its finite wisdom, has taken a look at the Democrats blowing their Blue Wave and decided that the smart play to exploit their unexpected (and undeserved) improving prospects by embracing the exact opposite of what the militant Normals sent them to Washington to do because…because they are establishment Republicans and stupid is what they do.

These geniuses have considered all the possible ways to use the limited legislative time available to implement a conservative agenda and decided that the big legislative priority during the ramp-up to the midterms must be handing citizenship to a bunch of future Democrats who shouldn’t even be here in the first place – and all over the thunderous objections of GOP voters. Paul Ryan’s eager to bring it upagain because he’s super savvy in some alternate universe, and if he won’t, the Squish Squad wants to force a vote on comprehensive immigration capitulation via a discharge petition they would sign in collaboration with the Democrats.

Well, discharge this, jerks.

Apparently, we’ve been unclear about where we GOP voters stand on this issue, so let me clarify it for you members of the Congressional Nitwit Caucus.

No freaking amnesty.

No amnesty.

None.

No “comprehensive reforms.”

No compromises.

No amnesty.

But the aspiring valedictorians of DACA…

No! Deport them!

But the children!

No! Deport them!

But Jesus says…

No! Deport them! And stop trying to Jesusplain immigration at us!

But our rich RINO donors want a never-ending stream of cheap labor that is terrified to speak up and is therefore pliable, unlike you uppity citizens who they would actually have to pay a decent wage…

No! Deport them!

What is this fascination with allowing foreigners who have disrespected our laws to jump the line ahead of the aspiring Americans who played by the rules? Why are the GOP Fredocons so set on ignoring their own voters’ repeated howls of protest? We know why the Democrats do it – Normal Americans have grown angry (some might say militant) and refuse to obey their liberal betters, and therefore they must be replaced by an imported electorate that knows its place.

But the Republicans? What’s their excuse? Why are Congressional Republicans so much more effective at implementing the liberal agenda than the Democrats are? Why do they insist on risking electoral suicide time and time again by trying to jam amnesty down our throats after we keep telling them to jam it elsewhere?

We get why the Chamber of Commerce types want amnesty. They love the idea of a serf class whom they can pay pennies and then let us make up the difference through the social spending we have to shell out because these robber barons won’t pay their coolies’ full freight. Five years ago, illegals cost us taxpayers over $134 billion with a “B,” all so the Paul Ryan Party can please its corporate masters, and so Chuck Schumer’s crew can get some more votes and its elite members can get some cheap housekeepers. Basically, Republicans want you to dish out more dough in taxes so check-writing fatcats can get docile laborers and so a liberal couple in Santa Monica can pay meager wages to that nice Guatemalan lady who is raising Kaden and have their lifestyle subsidized by you.

How do you say “hard pass” in Spanish?

Let’s not even mention the crimes the Normals endure and the elite avoid living behind the guardhouses of their gated communities, from fender benders by uninsured illegals to MS-13 mass murders. At the end of the day, the people pushing illegal immigration cash in on votes or, well, cash, and we get handed the check.

How about no?

How about we enforce our laws?

How about we normal Americans demand that we get a say in who comes here and who doesn’t?

And how about the Republicans stop trying, again and again and again, to undermine and undercut the will of the party’s base?

No amnesty.

None.

Don’t like it? Go home.

This is our country and this is our choice. You’ve proposed radically changing our nation by allowing massive, uncontrolled immigration, legal and illegal. And we’ve said “Hell no.”

Do what your voters tell you, Republicans. Stop trying to make amnesty happen. It’s not going to happen.

Now, maybe in Washington you think a bunch of illegal aliens worried about being deported is an emergency. Out here in America, we don’t. We think it’s a good start.

Yes, the president has talked about letting the DACA people stay, but as part of a deal that makes real changes to this broken system. Whether that deal would be worth it is arguable, but at least the president is demanding real enforcement. But Team Amnesty can’t even do that – they imagine that somehow we’re going to go for another round of “Okay, we’ll let a bunch of future Democrats become citizens even though they committed a crime coming here, and then later someday maybe possibly we might think about perhaps studying the contingency of sort of keeping the promise we made to stop illegal immigration the last time we amnesty-conned you.

I have a better idea. Ready?

Get the GOP base excited and happy going into the midterms by not doing the precise opposite of what we sent you to Washington to do.

Whoa.

Kooky, right?

No. Sane. We can’t blow the midterms by alienating our own people on behalf of aliens. Only a bunch of morons could think that’s a smart play.

Oh. Wait. Let me introduce the Republican Party.

No amnesty. We’re serious, folks. In fact, we’re positively militant.

Don’t push us. You won’t like how it ends in November.

5 Reasons Trump Will Win 40 States in 2020

Leave a comment

H/T Town Hall.

I think that if the economy keeps growing and unemployment keeps going down I think President Trump’s reelection in 2020 will match Ronald Reagan’s win over Walter Mondull(Mondale)in 1984 with a 49 state win.

Delusional progressives are powerless to stop it. Ineffective never-trump laughingstock are dwindling into oblivion.

After every curve-ball has been thrown at him from every conceivable direction, Donald Trump will win 40 states, and do so in a most extraordinary way.

He will have made Americans believe in American greatness once again!

He already is.

In 2006 a full two years prior to his election I was the first to predict that Barack Obama would be elected President.

No one believed me, but I based it on five instinctive realities I could see forming. I indicated if as few of three of the five occurred he’d likely be elected. Four of the five came true.

Here’s why I feel similarly as to President Trump’s re-election.

5. Foreign Policy Dominance

In every move President Trump has made in terms of foreign policy, wildly, he has kept consistent on two levels. He has kept his campaign promises. He has also delivered an America First policy without apology. I use the word apology purposefully. The previous administration apologized for America endlessly. The lack of appreciation for the country that gave Barack Obama everything he ever deemed of value in his life took a psychological toll on our people. But decades of policies allowing trade, security, and immigration imbalances took tolls on our welfare. From NATO to the G7, Saudi Arabia, to Israel, North Korea to Iran, from Russia to China, Trump’s unapologetic stance of advocating for his nation’s best standing is reversing that psychological effect. And he now lives rent free in the minds of all who believed America was weak.

4. Stronger Might, Less War, Safer World

Unrelenting in his belief that a strong America makes a safer world, President Trump has also for the most part kept his campaign promises to not send America’s best into theaters of combat that don’t serve our purpose. He has a budget that is bulking up our fighting hardware. He has deployed missiles. He’s coordinated with our allies. He’s responded to the actions of state sponsored terrorists. He has ISIS all but obliterated. Almost none of it requiring more human boots on the ground. Meanwhile rogue nuclear powers are having their bluffs called, phony agreements torn up, and their futures reconsidered—because America is dealing from strength, not desperation.

3. His Base Is Strongest Of The Era

At two years into his term the base of support he grew to support his candidacy stands almost unmoved from his inauguration at 87%. The only President in the modern era that bests him was George W. Bush in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. His support is largely based upon promises kept in numbers of areas but his particularly aggressive appointments of judges in the appellate system, as well as the Supreme Court of The United States have already secured pro-life, and pro-religious liberties wins. If he does not have the chance to place another appointment to the Supreme Court before the 2018 mid-terms, this becomes an especially effective campaign focus for 2020. The difference then will be that he has a record of delivering on this promise to demonstrate—whereas in 2016 never-Trumpers never believed he’d fulfill this promise. But proving people wrong has been one of President Trump’s most endearing features since gaining office.

2. He Will Garner Record African American Support

Driven largely on great home-ownership numbers, George W. Bush garnered the modern era’s greatest numbers of African American voters. It was all of 11%.

The lock-hold that the American left has handcuffed the African American vote with is both cultural and economic. And while President Trump will — like all GOP Presidents in the era — not likely gain the majority of African American votes, even an increase of 15-20% of their overall votes would trigger a seismic landslide. Consider that Bush was able to improve the lives of many by increased home-ownership. Consider that President Obama oversaw a rapid decline in the lives of African Americans. Then consider that no group has benefitted more from Trump reforms, deregulation, and job creation initiatives than the nation’s African Americans. But also consider the cultural impact President Trump is making on the issue of prison reform, cracking down on dangerous gang activity (of which minorities are the overwhelming majority of victims,) and pardoning African Americans wrongfully imprisoned, and their is a cultural shift occurring that no one is yet reporting. That he is even reaching out to the very sports figures who have opposed him and embracing cultural figures and giving them audience to hear their hearts and minds in order to achieve justice on some social level—is a picture that African American communities are unaccustomed to seeing. President Obama’s went to black churches, put in affected speech patterns, and bemoaned conditions. By contrast President Trump invites them to the White House, listens to their legitimate complaints and plots solutions. I would not be surprised if he were to break 30% of African American support in 2020.

1. Jobs

When people used to not have the dignity of work, they will be exceedingly hesitant to turn to options that will adversely affect that reality. With the economy growing 4-6% annually (which is possible by 2020,) and unemployment bouncing below 4%, along with the greatest number of workforce participants in two decades, people simply vote their pocketbook. Over the course of our history people’s economic realities have continued to be some of the most reliable indicators of electoral success. That he continues to push records and new thresholds of success for people vis-a-vie wages, vertical job opportunities, and exploding entrepreneurial environments there will be great hesitation to change horses midstream.

In 2006 I was right on 4 of the 5 conditions for Obama’s election. Should at minimum 3 of these 5 conditions hold I believe Donald Trump will be overwhelmingly re-elected almost irrespective of who the Democrats decide to run.

He campaigned on promises he could keep.

He’s now keeping the promises he made.

He will in all likelihood be given a chance to make and keep more promises to the people who gave him the chance the first time.

This ain’t rocket science!

FAKE NEWS: CNN Calls Palestinian Terrorists With Guns and Grenades ‘Largely Unarmed’

Leave a comment

H/T Town Hall.

Fake News CNN would have called the flood in Noah’s day just a little rain fall.

CNN appears to be on a mission to help Hamas destroy Israel. CNN has spent the past month actively assisting Hamas terrorists with media propaganda dissemination as the terrorists continue their attempt to overtake Israel.

CNN headlines always point the finger at Israel as a culprit, and always shower Palestinian terrorists with white lies to bolster them.

CNN stories are propagandizing art. A story about months of continuous attacks on Israeli border and infrastructure by terrorists and their recruits becomes a story of a nurse killed due to Israeli overreaction to what CNN described as “largely unarmed” “protests,” a regurgitation of Hamas terrorist allegations.

I snapped at CNN immediately after they spread FAKE NEWS last month by misreporting violence as “protest.” Last night, CNN doubled down on this deceitful “protest” terminology when reporting on the alleged nurse. This has never been a “protest.” This has always been violence against the country of Israel.

CNN praises the terrorists as being “largely unarmed.” LARGELY UNARMED? CNN noticed that some were unarmed, while others were heavily armed, but CNN prefers the “unarmed protestor” narrative and is comfortable with concealing terrorism, so the fallacious “largely unarmed” terminology was forced down our throats.

Let’s be clear: the Palestinians are heavily armed with grenades, guns, and firebombs, and are trying to cause death and destruction.

CNN does not explain why the alleged nurse was killed. Maybe she was standing next to the terrorist with the grenade. Or she was next to the terrorist trying to run over Israeli soldiers with his car. Maybe she was next to the terrorists shooting a rifle at Israeli soldiers, or the terrorist hurling a firebomb into Israel. CNN didn’t report on any of this, so we are in the dark as to these relevant details.

How do we even know if the story about the nurse is true? Last month, CNN reported that a Palestinian baby was killed by Israel. Turns out, that was a lie. The baby was removed from the list of Palestinian dead because that baby died of natural causes unrelated to Israel or the Great Return March. Instead of mourning the death of his child like a normal human being, the Palestinian father brought his baby’s dead body to the mob attacking the Israeli border and lied to CNN about how that baby died. CNN has not updated their story blaming Israel for the death of that baby. Nor has CNN reported that Palestinians and Hamas lie about their dead quite often.

CNN also continues the false narrative of the intent of the “protest.” CNN is correctly reporting that these “protests” are not about Trump(a misrepresentation CNN made last month), but about the Great Return March. But what CNN conveniently leaves out of the Great Return March reporting is that the intention of the march is to walk into Israel, kill Jews and overtake the country.

CNN is conveniently continuing to ignore Palestinian calls for the murder of Israelis and Jews. In this video, IDF shows maps posted by Hamas on their Great Return March social media, illustrating where Israeli towns and homes are located and showing paths of how to get there from the border. A “peaceful protestor” named Mohammed told Washington Post that their goal is to “get inside” and to do “whatever is possible, to kill, throw stones.” Washington Post also reported that two other men carried large knives and said they wanted to kill Jews on the other side of the fence. Other terrorists are seen on video running around the border screaming, “KILL THE JEWS!” Indeed, the mission of Palestinian Hamas, the organizer of these “protests,” is to kill the Jews and overtake Israel.

Why is CNN ignoring these facts? I suspect it is because CNN sees terrorism intentions against Israel and Jews as an inconvenient truth, inconsistent with their continuous anti-Israel agenda, so they just choose to leave that part out.

This is why CNN is biased, untrustworthy FAKE NEWS.

Twice Deported Illegal Alien Re-Enters Country and Kills Daughter

Leave a comment

H/T Town Hall.

One more reason we need to build the border wall.

An illegal alien was sentenced to life in prison in New Bedford, Mass. on Friday after pleading guilty to the murder of his daughter. The man in question, Walter DaSilva, shot and killed Sabrina DaSilva in 2016 because he felt “disrespected.”

Walter DaSiIva admitted to shooting and killing his 19 year-old daughter because she continued to date an older man against his wishes. This apparently upset DSilva who felt further insulted when she refused to visit him on Father’s Day in 2016.

DaSilva had been separated from his daughter for a lengthy amount of time because he had also attempted to kill her mother, Lillian Silva, in 2002. DaSilva spent 8-10 years in jail and then was deported back to his home country of Brazil. This was the second time that he had been deported. He was also removed from the country in 1999.

In 2016, he returned to the States and quickly tried to reconnect with his daughter. He gave her many gifts, including $12,000. But, he told her not to see her 56 year old boyfriend. She ignored his request.

“Based on that disrespect and that disrespect alone, as he saw it, he took upon himself to obtain a firearm in Connecticut,” the prosecutor said at the time of his court hearing in 2016.

After obtaining the firearm, he drove to his daughter’s house in New Beddord, MA on July 3rd, 2016 where he planned to kill the couple. But, he decided to kill only his daughter after the boyfriend was no where to be found once DaSilva arrived at the house. He was then arrested a month later and charged with murder.

At his court hearing in 2016, the illegal alien smiled with glee as his charges were read aloud.

“He just looked at my face and smiled. He was so happy for what he did,” his daughter’s mother told the Boston Globe. “It made me cry. He’s very cold and mean and evil.”

After nearly two years of legal procedure, DaSilva and his attorneys have reached a plea agreement. According to WWLP-22 News, “as part of the plea agreement, he will be eligible for parole after serving 25 years. DaSilva also pleaded guilty Friday to illegally carrying a firearm and possessing a loaded firearm…For the carrying charge he was sentenced to three years, which will be served prior to the life sentence, and for the possession charge he received a two-year sentence, which will be served concurrently with the life term.”

“It gives the family some comfort, some closure,” one official said. “Not total. It’s legal closure. They don’t have to worry about any of the court proceedings, and he’s going to be in jail very likely for the rest of his life.”

Sabrina DaSilva left behind her own daughter. She is now four years old.

NYT Shell-Shocked By Historic Jobs Numbers: We Ran Out Of Words To Describe How Good It Is

Leave a comment

H/T Town Hall.

The DemocRats said President Trump’s tax cuts would be an Albatross around the neck of the GOP it doesn’t like it will be a problem.

The jobs numbers are great. In fact, they’re tremendous. They’re the most luxurious May numbers God has ever created. Okay—not really, but they’re solid; 223,000 jobs in May and black unemployment hit a record low. The overall unemployment rate is now at 3.8 percent, an 18-year low. In terms of white and black unemployment numbers, which are usually miles apart, they’ve never been closer. You can’t polish a turd. You can’t spin incontrovertibly good news. That’s what The New York Times admitted in their headline about these job numbers. They ran out of words synonymous with good concerning this news:

The real question in analyzing the May jobs numbers released Friday is whether there are enough synonyms for “good” in an online thesaurus to describe them adequately.

So, for example, “splendid” and “excellent” fit the bill. Those are the kinds of terms that are appropriate when the United States economy adds 223,000 jobs in a month, despite being nine years into an expansion, and when the unemployment rate falls to 3.8 percent, a new 18-year low.

“Salubrious,” “salutary” and “healthy” work as words to describe the 0.3 percent rise in average hourly earnings, which are up 2.7 percent over the last year — a nice improvement but also not the kind of sharp increase that might lead the Federal Reserve to rethink its cautious path of interest rate increases.

And a broader definition of unemployment, which includes people who have given up looking for a job out of frustration, fell to 7.6 percent. The jobless rate for African-Americans fell to 5.9 percent, the lowest on record, which we would count as “great.”

If anything, some of the thesaurus offerings don’t really do these numbers justice. But some aspects of the report would be fairly described as “solid,” “decent” or “benign,” such as the uptick in the ratio of the adult population that is employed to 60.4 percent, which only matches its recent high of the earlier in the year.

 

 

So, Trump is getting America back to work—and a lot of this news could be traced back to his tax reform package. It’s created a better job-creating and investing climate. Democrats thought this bill could be an albatross around the neck of the GOP. I don’t think that’s going to be the case. The generic ballot advantage is now within single-digits, and it’s very possible that the blue wave everyone was lusting for could very well vanish into thin air. Wages also increased by 2.7 percent. CNN and CNBC also touted the good news. It’s good for the country. We can all thank the GOP and President Trump for this. If I were a Democrat, I would be very nervous. The good economic news keeps coming and the Left just has a hatred for Trump and nothing else. That’s not a platform for winning elections.

***

UPDATE: if this is how Pelosi and the Democrats are responding to the jobs reports, they’re going to be very disappointed come November. Get a new playbook; this one doesn’t work anymore:

May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch.

“Republicans’ cruel, cynical health care sabotage campaign is already spiking families’ premiums by double digits and pushing millions off their coverage, according to the nonpartisan CBO.  Big Pharma continues to hoard the benefits of the GOP tax scam, using their handouts to further enrich executives and shareholders instead of lowering prescription drug costs for seniors and sick kids.  At the same time, the President’s reckless policies are exploding gas prices, wiping out the few meager gains that some families should have received from the GOP tax scam, as wages remain stagnant.

“From day one, the White House and Republicans in Congress have sold out working and middle class families to further enrich the wealthy and big corporations shipping jobs overseas.

Uh, the people benefitting from this bill are middle and working class families. CNN’s Jake Tapper pointed that out and even self-described socialist Bernie Sanders admitted middle class taxes would be cut. The next step is to make the Trump tax cuts permanent.

 

 

Little Caesars Employee Shoots, Kills Attacker In Clown Mask, Police Say

H/T The Daily Caller.

It was fortunate that the Little Caesars employee was armed.

Maybe it’s better to leave the clown costume at home in the closet this Halloween. Hysteria sweeping the United States after a series of “creepy clown” sightings in recent weeks has created an unwelcome scare this October 31, 2016, when Americans will celebrate all things ghoulish, sinister and fantastical. / AFP / RHONA WISE / TO GO WITH AFP STORY by Leila MACOR, “US creepy clown craze puts damper on Halloween” (Photo credit should read RHONA WISE/AFP/Getty Images)

  

An employee at a Little Caesars in Florida shot and killed an attacker wearing a clown mask who was armed with scissors Saturday night, according to police.

The employee, Heriberto Feliciano, 28, was reportedly closing the Little Caesars when the attacker ran in and began hitting him with a wooden post in the face and shoulders, with scissors in hand. The attacker reportedly hit Feliciano so hard with the wood that the board broke, Fox News reported.

After the attacker brought Feliciano to the ground, he reportedly tried to stab him with the scissors. Feliciano quickly pulled out his concealed firearm and reportedly fired off four or five shots. After discharging his firearm Feliciano said he put his gun on top of his vehicle and called police to report what had just happened.

Police reportedly started receiving calls about shots fired at the Little Caesers around 11:50 p.m. When they arrived, police found the alleged attacker laying in the parking lot with a clown mask and scissors on the ground. After police saw the suspect had been shot, he was taken to the hospital, where he died.

“Even though [Feliciano was] being attacked, he’s able to pull out a concealed firearm he has and fires multiple rounds at the suspect,” Holly Hill Police Chief Stephen Aldrich told FOX35 Orlando. “We’re obviously aggressively pursuing this to find out where this individual came from and why this attack occurred.”
