    It is beyond reason. Silly Rhino’s and “doubters” are saying “Trump is backing down on his promises”; he’s not even in office yet! What’s beyond reason is that no one is calling out Obama over his of transparency and other “campaing promises” that he never delivered on. In other words, a liberal doesn’t have to be taken at face value, But a conservative does. Double standard if there ever was one.

      I think Trump saw through his neocon ideology and that’s why he passed him up. Too bad Lou won’t call him on it.

      Bolton’s forthright neo-con-ness made for lots of “blame America first” type splodey-heads back in the early 2000s; as such I had good memories of the guy. The right people hated him.

      But neo-conservative does not mean the same thing as conservative.

    Gosh I just want to say as a naturalized citizen living in this great country for 40+ years, I am appalled by the vitriol garbage disrespect that comes out of Hollywood, a bunch of aging has beens who think they know best. They do NOT speak for me. How dare they think they represent America.

      Tons of non-naturalized citizens would agree.

      Those who immigrated legally, abandoning their old homes, studied for the test, and went to a LOT of trouble to become Americans are often MUCH more patriotic than those who were born as citizens and simply had it given to them at birth.

      You had to work for it. They (we) didn’t.

      Most of them have no real skills other than pretending to be someone else, and also no real intellectual heft since they don’t bother expanding their horizons outside the leftist Hollywood bubble.

      Most of the intelligent Hollywood types are conservative. Notice how there are barely any of them.

        Someone–I can’t remember whom (maybe Tom Selleck?), but he was a Hollywood conservative–once joked that it was consoling to realize that one out of every three Hollywood conservatives went on to become President of the United States.

      I hope the left keeps itself busy with their ridiculous hysterics and protests that accomplish nothing but make them look unhinged. It’s comforting to know our opponents are completely incompetent.

        The way I look at it, they can throw all the public tantrums–I mean protests–no I don’t–they want. Has no effect.

      Drudge said the last attack came from thousands of sources.

      Don’t know if he meant thousands in one location like a huge workshop in China or Malaysia or an organized group spread around the country or world.

      • I’m not an expert on any of this but I heard some people say it was a DOS attack meaning a bunch of different sources were requesting so much data that the server shut down. It could be a single system making millions of simultaneous requests or millions of individual systems each making simultaneous requests. Both could be, at least theoretically, executed by the US government given their scope of resources.

        Honestly though, not to get too tin foil hatty, it wouldn’t surprise me if these were actually carried out through our own computers by software companies who either do this on their own or have some form of government involvement. The reason I say that is when I was setting up a new computer running Windows 10 it specifically asked me if I wanted to allow Microsoft to use my computer to help install updates to other people’s computers when I’m not using it, and of course the default is yes.

        Even more concerning is that this is only brought up if you select custom setup. If you use the express settings, of which most people probably do, you’ll never know your computer’s resources can be used when your not using it.

        And if they can install updates without your knowledge they can probably do other things too! May not be likely but it is something to think about.

    Hannity told Assange how he said back in 2008 that journalism is dead because all the stuff that Hannity uncovered about Barack Obama was buried by the mainstream media. It was by discovering Hannity’s radio show in 2008 that I woke up from the brainwashing I went through in today’s education system. I flipped from an Obama supporter to an ardent Obama critic in a matter of weeks listening to Hannity.

    Hannity is a true patriot and I am so thankful that he uses his platform to be a champion of truth.

    “Some Obama donors say they are not getting traditional perks”
    By Michael D. Shear and Dan Eggen
    Friday, December 4, 2009
    Some of President Obama’s wealthiest supporters are becoming a bit whiny, and it has nothing to do with policy.

    Tickets for tours of the presidential residence are scarce, even for those who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for last year’s campaign. Private fundraisers tend to be brief, businesslike affairs. And there have been no sleepovers in the Lincoln Bedroom, weekends at Camp David or intimate lunches with the first couple.

    Nearly a year into his presidency, that pattern has led some top Democratic donors across the country to grumble that they aren’t getting the kind of personal attention from Obama and access to the White House they became used to during the eight years of Bill Clinton’s presidency.

    “I’ve had almost no communication with the White House,” said Chris Korge, a top supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton from Miami who later collected $5.5 million for Obama, making him one of the president’s biggest fundraisers.

    Korge said his only visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. was a St. Patrick’s Day event. He complained in a recent interview that the administration has done little to reward the president’s donors or tap into their experience and wisdom.
