    Paul Ryan’s continual “oh so clever” comments which are disrespectful and diminishing of Trump makes me very angry. How will Trump slap this egomaniac down once and for all?

      Saw him use the word “sycophant” wrong. You can be a sycophant to Putin but not to Russia in general.

      Don’t you worry, Sedanka. Paul Ryan will fall into place for his own good. Corrupt politicians leave dirty fingerprints. It’s matter of time.

      Not sure Trump really can. The only real slap down is for the voters to vote him out of office, but given that his district is pretty solid GOPe, that’s going to be hard, as shown by the last election.

        Schumer is a strong supporter of Israel, as shown by his recent upset with Obama over the UN resolution. However, like most American Jews, he is a Democrat. It’s always been a mystery to me but I have had numerous Jewish friends over the years tell me the reason they would not be Republican is because they believe the Republicans are too close to Nazis. They don’t understand that Hitler and the Nazis were socialists and on the left, not the right. They’ve bought the lie that Nazis are on the right and communists are on the left when, in reality, both Nazis and communists are on the left. I don’t know how accurate that is for most Jews in America, but I’ve had many tell me that over the years and that’s from all over the country. I’ve lived in Boston, New York, Chicago, Miami, and Los Angeles and had Jewish friends in all those areas and been told the same thing.

          American Jews really don’t support the Israeli Jews as much as you think. My best friend hates the Israelis and she is Jewish lives in NYC.

        • WSB says:

          Interesting reason. I have always heard that many American Jews voted Republican until William Howard Taft made a disparaging remark in ’09, and since then they rejected the American Republicans.

          My other half, who is Jewish, and whose grandparent and parents were Republican…from NYC and upstate…is also perplexed. American Jews always seem to vote completely against their own strengths and interests. We just had this same conversation with friends this weekend.

          My better half always sighs, and then makes this comment, “they are like chickens voting for Colonel Sanders.”

      That is only just. Republicans didn’t help the Dems craft Obamacare, or pass it. The new healthcare policy will be so popular, and they will get zero credit. Sweet justice.


      • TPW says:

        If the Republicans vote on something that reduces cost by a mere 20% and pat themselves on the back I am going to have a big problem with them…….according to guy on Kelly’s show this would be a win for the GOPe………..A silver plan which is still crappy reduced from $1850 a month to $1500 is not a win for us but a win for the insurance companies…….watch these Republicans they do not have our interest in mind……..

      With no disrespect meant toward our Californians here – Ietting the state secede would make America a Republican stronghold for the next hundred years. The Dems couldn’t win a national election. I doubt that Trump wants to just let the state go, but I would be fine with him doing it.

      2016-2017 South Carolina. Trump entices governor who didn’t support him to leave her office and hang out at the UN, and the lieutenant governor who support him reigns.

      2016-2017 California hires Holder to throw rocks Trump’s way, while BFF Barry stays in DC to do same. Problem — the BFF’s have a lot in common — incompetence.

    Listening to the back and forth banter as the swamp dwelling members of Congress
    flit toward the red lights on the SRM cameras, I have a new appreciation for their extended vacations.
    In just one day, they have assaulted the intellect of anyone watching.
    I will be leaving in just 12 days for D.C. to witness the historic swearing in ceremony.
    Total media silence will no doubt make the experience more enjoyable.

    I am listening to Tucker Carlson and you MUST HEAR the nonsense being spewed by Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT). Himes is saying that the Repubs have been lying about ACA and that is why people don’t want it!!! WHAT??? People don’t understand how very complicated it is…well, it was designed to be complicated so people WOULDN’T UNDERSTAND that they were being “fleeced!” OMG the comedy continues.

    Four Guantanamo detainees transferring to Saudi Arabia, as part of final wave

    Four Gitmo detainees are slated to be transferred to Saudi Arabia in the next 24 hours, the first of the final wave of up to 20 transfers expected before Inauguration Day, two U.S. officials tell Fox News.

    The identities of the four detainees are not immediately known. 

    The transfers are proceeding despite renewed opposition from President-elect Donald Trump, who tweeted on Tuesday: “There should be no further releases from Gitmo. These are extremely dangerous people and should not be allowed back onto the battlefield.” 

    The Pentagon said Gitmo transfers would continue over Trump’s objection.

    • Yes. I liked the store until they went PC. When we went by during this holiday season, it was not as busy as in past years. And they would rather go bankrupt than put out a statement stating maybe they were wrong or fire the loser who started the whole mess. That says a lot.

  30. George Webb on his latest Where is Eric Braverman video asks people to tweet or contact Trump and ask him to tweet out “Where is Eric Braverman” or something to get Trump interested.
