    At the end of the day, Hillary Clinton didn’t lose because of Comey, Russia or miscounted votes. Hillary lost because the Democratic Party rigged its own primary and chose the wrong candidate.

    As the following cartoon so accurately depicts:

      I hope no one listens to her if her plan is to force employers to pay for maternity leave. It is not the federal government’s business and will quickly get out of control like it is in Canada. We elected Donald Trump to get the government out of our lives again. Tax breaks or some other measure perhaps, but why should a business pay twice for the same position.

      If a business chooses voluntarily to pay for maternity leave as part of employee benefits, then fine. Otherwise, absolutely not.

        I totally agree. We need less regulation not more. Ivanka and her husband are liberals. I don’t want them doing anything at all in Trump’s administration.
        Fortunately Donald Trump is the boss so his daughter will never get out of hand.

    Just back from Alas, Trump isn’t there (yet). It’s just someone using his name on their account :/


    • Ray Titus says:

      Until they overcome Twitter for users and become known as the source of quick messaging for social media, I doubt Trump will switch. Twitter is the standard and they have to be knocked out before they will be replaced. Trump needs to be on the most well known and popular social media to reach the most people, especially those who aren’t his supporters.

    Comey to Trump: The Russians Didn’t Influence the Election
    In telephone conversations with Donald Trump, FBI Director James Comey assured the president-elect there was no credible evidence that Russia influenced the outcome of the recent U.S. presidential election by hacking the Democratic National Committee and the emails of John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

      Didn’t click the story, but if this is per “Ed Klein” – he makes stuff up. Not sure why people never question his so called sources… but with all he said about the Clintons, you would think he was always sitting in their living room.

      So, read the story with the above in mind.

      He may be able to record his calls in NYC if they go to his business line – like a customer service hotline. Maybe he recorded it. That would be awesome.

    Charles Payne on Fox Business talking about the CONTENT of the DNC leaked WIKILWAKS emails now. (AKA Russian Hackers emails).

    Doing a great job.

    I’m starting to be happy the Dems decided to bring these up again. Nice job of re-focusing attention on your failings, racism,and overall despicableness, Dems.

    Saw a tweet a little bit ago from a reporter (and cannot remember which now) saying that sources mentioned Richard Haas as potential deputy SoS. Not sure how I feel about that… he is Pres. of CFR. I had always thought highly of him until I read more about CFR.

    Of course, this is a “sources” story, so probably nothing to it. Just wanted to bring it up to see what others thought of Richard Haas.

    Please contact senators about Obama wanting the small arms treaty to be ratified in the Senate while no one is watching. We can’t rationalize not continuing to watch until the inauguration.

    • Sandra-VA says:

      The Senators are not going to ratify it, so don’t worry.


      • camulla says:

        A possible scenario is that the conservative senators leave and so it would still be ratified because of Democrats voting on it, and it HAS been sent to the Senate to be ratified prior to the inauguration. All of this with recounts has shown that having a Democrat Senate would have been a disaster. I’m thankful we kept both houses of Congress, but we still need to show congressional leadership through email, tweets, and calling that we did not give Congress the same mandate we gave Trump/Pence.

        I agree that these scenarios are not probable. I do not think that not watching what this administration wants to do is a good thing. We have had legislation just in recent weeks that has not been good, and we don’t need treaties to hurt the incoming administration.


  14. Howie says:

    Just watched Sheriff Joe. He presented absolute 100 percent proof Obama Birth Cert is a Forgery. Beyond a reasonable doubt and to the exclusion of any other reasonable hypothesis. Obama is a criminal and was never and is not now eligible to be POTUS.

    Saw this and am hoping for an SD analysis and input from y’all – Huma ia claiming she never saw a warrant and neither did Weiner which could mean all found emails can’t be used against them as evidence.

    Is this a lying smokescreen aka fake news style, Comey’s attempt to look like he was doing something but actually helping Clinton/Huma out, or gross incompetence?


    • Niagara Frontier says:

      Who will ever know the real answer? It could be one of those instances covered by the Patriot Act that doesn’t require a traditional warrant but is authorized simply by a National Security Letter issued by an FBI agent.

    BB, Drudge? Major news I would think.. Bombshell I would think.
    My guess is Trump already knew it was coming. Will he tweet/say anything? Timing is interesting too.

    Trump nominates David Friedman as ambassador to Israel, where he will ‘work from Jerusalem’

    The Trump transition team’s statement said Friedman – who like the incumbent ambassador, Dan Shapiro, speaks Hebrew – intends “to work tirelessly to strengthen the unbreakable bond between our two countries and advance the cause of peace within the region, and look forward to doing this from the U.S. embassy in Israel’s eternal capital, Jerusalem.”

    Congress recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 1995 and mandated the move of the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but successive presidents have exercised a waiver in the law, citing national security interests….

    Nigel Farage meets Donald Trump for a third time amid speculation of new role advising on UK/US trade deal

    If Mr Farage is made an adviser it would mean that Mrs May is forced to deal with the former UK Independence Party leader.

    Mrs May has already risked raising tensions with the US President-elect by rejecting his suggestion to give Mr Farage the job of British ambassador to Washington.

    Just saw Megyn Kelly’s interview with Sean Spicer. Never heard of him before and hope that he is not Trump’s pick for Press Secretary. He’s not fast on his feet and comes across as a old GOPer.

    I’m hope Laura Ingram is President Trump’s choice. She is fast on her feet, articulate and is able to put the press in their place quickly with facts and grace.

    “And so the idea that a Trump supporter could be co-hosting a radio show is absolutely unacceptable, much less one who makes outrageous statements like … Islam is ‘political’.”

      The ‘gay’ lifestyle is dangerous to a ‘gay’ man’s health. 40-150 times greater incidence of all STDs and many are incurable (HPV, HIV, Herpes) and the new strains of syphilis and gonorrhea are untreatable.

    Megyn Kelly slobbers in her interview over James Alefantes. How is this journalism?


    • zephyrbreeze says:

      Alefantes has hired a high-powered crisis PR firm to guide him through this, and voila, here he is on Megyn Kelly.

      In the interview he says that the little girl taped to the table was taped by her sister. You look at that tape job and think another child did that?

        First I think he hired a PR firm too late. Much of the damage was self inflicted. You can’t deny the place is a bit weird. But they could have probably overcome that. But kicking out Jack Posobiec made them look bad. Whoever was running the restaurant that night should have went over when Jack was live and offered to show him around the restaurant after he ate.

      I didn’t believe pizzagate – and I guess I still don’t – but that photo, which I hadn’t seen before tonight, gives me pause. I mean who does that? And even if another child did it, who photographs it and puts it on instagram? You just can’t fix stupid.
