    Kicking Money Out of Politics: Trump Boots Koch Brother from Golf Course – Breitbart

    President-elect Donald Trump told a critical biographer and guest of billionaire David Koch to leave his West Palm Beach golf course on New Year’s Eve, forcing Koch to leave with him.
    Trump’s gesture was another slight against the pro-amnesty, pro-“free trade” billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, who opposed Trump during the Republican primary season and refused to help him during the general election. It also signals Trump will not necessarily play nice with the GOP political establishment and Beltway right.

      The CNN book will be trash, no doubt. I wish the campaign people would put out their own book, aimed squarely at Trump supporters, and sell it for enough to start the next campaign. As a must, include also a DVD of all the great rally highlights, debate highlights, speeches, etc. I would gladly pay a bunch for such an item. There was never a campaign or election like this one in my lifetime. I do not want its record to be created by the left–our side needs to do it. We won, we write the history. Screw CNN.

        You’re right. The PR stuff put out when Bill Clinton won and then when the man called Obama won was absolute malarkey; the NYT actually sold Obama souvenirs. And all of their gushing stories were fiction. Obama is a pathological liar.

        Let;s get a true story about a real person who actually did accomplish something amazing, despite the sabotage engaged in by the Press and the political class, not to mention the so called entertainment industry.

            Alex Jones thinks it’s going to be a blockbuster and already ordered 10000 copies.

    Kind of Off topic

    I was just reading where the Ambassador Craig Murray said he was given the Wickileaks emails in a park near American University on Massachusetts Avenue NW DC . the DNC staffer Seth Rich was kiiled in the Bloomingdale section of NW Dc . Wonder if Rich was using someplace for a drop off he was familiar with . ?

    The rockette who objected to performing at the inauguration said “On a national level, the optics of this alone normalize the atrocious remarks Mr. Trump has openly made towards women. The idea that if you simply ask their bosses or perhaps pay their bosses enough money, a line of beautiful women will oblige anyone in any way is exploitation.”

    Isn’t that the definition of what she does for a living? Or does this woman usually screen all her audience members to make sure there are no offensive men or people in her audience?

      I am tired of people who are paid to perform putting politics into it: they should be fired on the spot.

      If Rockettes don’t want men paying to have them dance, they should either give up dancing or give up being paid.
      Perhaps the Rockettes should decline money from all men, and also from any female representative of a man. No dough… Bye bye Rockettes.

    Now, I bet the discussions in the Michigan union halls and the Pennsylvania VFWs went something like this: “You know Mitch, with the economy so good and America so respected in the world, I was totally going to support Hillary continuing Obama’s work, but then I found out that Donna Brazile was feeding her CNN’s debate questions. Also, until Comey reminded me, I had totally forgotten Hillary was under FBI investigation for doing what would have gotten me sent to Leavenworth if I had done it when I was in the Navy. So, despite loving all the Democrat policies that have made my life a paradise, especially the idea of a law allowing grown men in dresses to loiter in my tween daughter’s restroom, I’m voting for Trump. Oh, also I’m a deplorable racist and hate science. Also, sexism

      From the Yahoo link above:

      The newspaper Haaretz said billionaire Ronald Lauder, a longtime friend of Netanyahu’s, was linked to the affair. Channel 10 TV has reported that Netanyahu’s oldest son, Yair, accepted free trips and other gifts from Australian billionaire James Packer.

      In late September, Lauder was summoned by police for questioning “related to a certain investigation conducted by them and in which Mr. Lauder is not its subject matter,” said Helena Beilin, Lauder’s Israeli attorney. “After a short meeting, he was told that his presence is no longer required and that there shall be no further need for additional meetings.”

      IMO, this is too much of a coincidence: (credit to by xyzlatin O/T on the Trump/North Korea thread)

      https://www.memri.org/reports/egyptian-daily-close-egyptian-intelligence-reveals-minutes-secret-palestinian-authority-0

      “According to the minutes of the meeting, Susan Rice asked whether the Palestinian delegation could meet with a representative from Donald Trump’s team. She clarified that she could request intervention and could organize this by means of World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder. Saeb Erekat responded that he had already asked but that Lauder could not. He added: ‘We were told that they were still organizing the new administration, and that once they were done, they would officially meet with the Palestinian side.'”

      Aside from the fact that Ronald Lauder’s name is brought up in both articles, which I think is a major coincidence, Susan Rice and John Kerry are both seditious snitches. Could they be using Lauder in this game of intrigue to work up something to make Netanyahu look bad? Not sure what it would accomplish but it is very suspicious.

      I know you asked Sundance but I’d like to toss out an answer for consideration. Yes, stay in the U.N. but vastly cut back on the infrastructure and organizational bloat. There is absolutely no need for a UN system with more than 51,000 employees, scores of sub departments and agencies, and thousands of subcontractors that accomplish very little.

      Return it to a deliberative body with 193 national representatives with limited staff. They can meet quarterly or more often if necessary. They should have no permanent location, but must rotate the location of their meetings to points around the globe. It might do some of them well to leave the comforts of NYC and camp out in some of the hell holes they helped create.

    seeking ideas… I am planning a party…an inauguration viewing party 🙂 I have the fireworks, was thinking about “45 hats” hand made party hats with # 45 on them (painted red of course). Red Solo Cups with “Trump 45” written in black marker. Going to download soundtrack from the movie “Air Force One” and have it playing when guests arrive.
    Need a timeline for fireworks, not sure what time the Inauguration is on tv tube yet. Need to check that.
    Would love some of the top campaign and highlights up to Nov. 8th. – would like to put that on a pamphlet.
    Any ideas? on the cheaper side.
    Anyone have a quick run down of highlights, maybe a cheat sheet sort of item?
