  1. If Trump has to pick Romney as Secretary of State so that he can get our plan through Congress, I’m OK with that. I don’t pay any attention to what the anti-Trump Weekly Standard says!

    Moreover Romney could be a decent Secretary of State. He sees the U.S. as facing three serious challenges: (1) Radical Islam, (2) China, and (3) Russia. Back in 2011, my father and I wrote an American Thinker commentary about his worldview, drawn from his book:

      “Moreover Romney could be a decent Secretary of State.”
      If you will pardon me, that sounds very much like “damning with faint praise.” It was Mitt Romney who also blew the 2012 Presidential race.
      My personal inclination is that, since the Secretary of State is FOURTH IN LINE in the Presidential Succession, Mitt Romney does not fill the bill.

      Trump also locks in the 10 million monster vote from the NeverTrumpers for 2020! Meanwhile, he appoints Trump loyalists like Stephen Miller to keep watch over Romney as Assistant SOS.

    Well lookie here. Guess who was spotted in NYC having a little chat with Steve Bannon:

    None other than rabid anti-Trumper Mark Cuban. Wonder what they were discussing. Maybe a “my bad” from Cuban?

      I enlarged the photo to see if I could see the name of Bannon’s book/journal. Couldn’t read that clearly but Bannon is looking right at whoever is taking the photo, so he is aware of it.


      • rsanchez1990 says:

        It could be that whoever took the photo took it right when Bannon looked in that direction. As for the book, I tried looking up books that I imagine Bannon would read but couldn’t find a cover that looked that red with white lettering on the cover.

  9. Gotta say, I’m with Bill Mitchell. His crazy twittering about the polls was one of the only accurate places I could go to (besides here of course) to fully understand what the polls actually said, rather than what the media told us they said, if that makes sense. Bill has been all-in with Trump and I respect his loyalty completely.

      What’s frightening is how the media has now become nothing more than propaganda. It was bad before Trump won but it’s gotten significantly worse since then. They’re no longer trying to be objective, they’re simply trying to do as much damage as possible to Trump by trying to get his supporters to think he’s backtracking on everything he’s promised. Case in point: Romney.

      And then the “fake news” trope is incredibly dangerous and seeds serious doubts in the minds of many Americans, essentially trying to frighten them into believing that things like Brietbart are propaganda.

      This is frightening.

      • Absolutely! Funny how the only “fake news” they reference is the Trump side. As if to say-pay no attention to “that side” just listen to us because we are the “real news.” Too bad we are all onto them already, and quite frankly, so are half the Democrats. They get it, they just don’t care.


  10. Non-political for a second. Me? I’m having a beer and vegging out with the CTH commenters before I start work on the turkey that I’ll be stuffing and putting in the oven to cook overnight. Just me, my wife and her twin sister for dinner tomorrow. What’s everyone else doing on Thanksgiving Eve?

    New meme I am starting and would like you to take note and possible spread around if you agree with me. So we can start waking up people to what is going on and stop it.

    Leftist/progressive fanatics = US ISIS. US Terrorists. They act the same.

    1) Both are extreme ideologue religious fanatics.
    2) Leftism is a religion just like extreme Islam.
    3) Both accept no difference of views. There can only be one way. Theirs.
    4) Both will stop at nothing to push their way.
    6) Both will lie, cheat, steal, destroy property, destroy lives all in the name of their supreme master of the beliefs. Their religion.
    7) Leftists extremists will also destroy their own if they stray too far from their ideal mantra. Just like ISIS will kill other Muslims who are not like them.

    It seem obvious to me
    Leftists/progressives are now just like ISIS. Terrorists.

    Leftism/progressivism = US ISIS.
    Leftism/progressivism = US ISIS.

    Enjoy, read and spread around thoughts on this. We need to get the word out to start molding opinion on this before it is too late and the Leftist terrorists take too much control by fear..

    Enjoy tomorrow.
    thanks for reading. Seeker.

      Similarly, any atheist I run into who decries Christianity, but will defend Islam at the drop of a hat will immediately be called Islamist by me. Either they treat all religions with the same amount of skepticism, or I will call them by their true name.

    Hillary is trying to steal the Presidency. There are computer experts who want recounts in PA, Michigan and Wisconsin. They want to see if Trump stole the vote by hacking the computers. Hillary is the one who hacked the PA computers. There were many people who said their solid Republican votes were flipped to Democrat votes.

    Hillary is so slimy. She talks of a peaceful transition while her backers are threatening the electoral college members. Supposedly 6 of them are switching to Hillary even though their states went for Trump.

    Crazy Elizabeth Warren and Elijah Cummings want the GAO to audit Trump’s transition team because it is so out of control. The MSM says so.

    I’m sure Trump is on all of this.


    • Michelle says:

      All they will uncover is that Hillary/bush/whoever was helping her hacked the votes and gave her more than she really received. Not to mention all the illegal aliens who voted for her.


    • Pam says:

      If they try to do something that stupid, they won’t have a leg to stand and when the new congress meets on January 6th, their efforts will be for nothing. Hillary has conceded. It’s over. Michigan will be officially certified on Monday giving Trump 306 EV’s.

      This is Jill Stein. My take on this is Stein surely is not stupid enough to think Trump actually had voting machines hacked. Besides, Michigan has paper ballots only. Stein knows the about the corrupt Democrat vote fraud machine, probably suspects they may have converted some of her and Johnson’s votes to help Hillary. She might be making a power play to expose the corruption of the Democrat establishment that would be found in any such audit, and turn the tables for her and Bernie to lead a new left oriented Democrat Party along the lines of the European Green Parties. Believe me, if they recounted those states and tried to give them to Hillary, Trump would not let that stand. A whole lot of crap would be dug into and start coming out (millions literally of illegals voting) that the DNC would just as soon let lie.

    OK, I’m off of here for a couple days. The constant conspiracies and freakouts in the comments have taken their toll. I can’t be held emotionally hostage by this nonsense.
