      I hope the volunteers ask each Cabinet during the prep rehearsals a question like, “When did you stop beating your spouse?”, or “I believe you are anti-abortion, don’t you think a woman has the right to choose?”
      I’m not being flippant about this. Such a question “from left field” can be used to possibly derail a confirmation.

          Stumbled on this about General Sherman earlier today/Would
          love to see our Generals do a clean sweep of the country
          General Sherman style/

          Excerpt on General Sherman’s March to Sea/

          “He cut off all lines of communication during the march to the sea.”

          “Sherman’s March to the Sea was one of the most stunning operations of the Civil War, yet few people outside of Georgia knew anything about it while it was underway. Before leaving Atlanta, Sherman intentionally severed all telegraph links to the North to help shroud his moves in secrecy. The plan meant the Confederates could only speculate about where Sherman and his 60,000-strong rampaging army were headed, but it also left the Union high command in the dark about the mission’s progress. When asked about Sherman’s whereabouts, a worried President Lincoln is said to have responded, “We know what hole he went in, but we don’t know what hole he will come out of.” Sherman would finally reappear on December 22, having slashed and burned his way through the heart of Georgia. Upon reaching the sea, he sent a famous message to Lincoln that read: “I beg to present you as a Christmas gift the city of Savannah.”

    BUSTED: @GM Sells Mexico-Made Cars To Ohio @GM Factory Workers, LIED About It To Trump & Public With MSM Cover

    Think about that for a second – GM is selling Cruze sedans manufactured in Mexico, in the same Ohio town that builds Cruze sedans. And at the same time, GM is brazen enough to say it doesn’t sell Cruze sedans built in Mexico in the US, saying all Cruze sedans in US dealerships are built in its Lordstown, Ohio plant. And GM did so in the face of the President-elect of the United States accusing the company of building Cruze sedans in Mexico, shipping them to America tax-free, and selling them in your local dealerships.

    GM was caught red-handed lying to the public and to Trump, and we might never have known if it weren’t for everyday people like Niedermeyer. It is crazy enough to wrap your head around; a regular guy did the fact checking the mainstream media never bothered to do. The MSM took GM’s word as gospel in their rush to criticize Trump, without bothering to check if GM was just lying to save its own skin.

    Allow this revelation to resonate in your head for a second, and keep it in the back of your mind next time the mainstream media tells you Trump is a dangerous liar and/or hypocrite in his latest tweet. Because you just might be the fact-checker that gets the last laugh, right alongside Trump himself.

    Trump’s tweets can no longer be dismissed as there he goes again. Now he moves markets, stokes anxiety, alters plans

      I wonder: What’s the difference in Trump himself using Twitter and other Presidents who used an “unnamed source”?


      • Bull Durham says:

        Transparency. Authenticity. Responsibility. Donald brands his words with his name.
        And it is unfiltered by the traitors in Media.

          I think what I was getting at is that others uses different means to achieve what is being stated about Trump. The vehicle is different, especially in this case Twitter. What you stated all adds up to a matter of integrity. So, it’s a significant difference than those who make such moves behind the scenes.

          Very refreshing.

      Golden Globes, a love festival of entertainers, producers, writers and directors to proclaim their brilliance and an expectation that lesser mortals will watch in awe. Delusional, aren’t they!

      I am disappointed in Breitbart, I just went over there and on the wire were about 25 articles on the Globe awards. The entire world is on fire, and that is the only news or non news they can find to report on?

      Don’t mean to be trashing BB as I keep that site pulled up all day and check constantly, just disappointed.


    • COLibertyBelle says:

      I make it a practice not to watch the garbage “awards” programs, precisely because those nothing burgers like Street inevitably use the stage to preach to those of us who have made their success possible. No, thank you…I have better uses for my time.


    • mopar2016 says:

      I don’t watch those awards shows anymore, they seem to be filled with democrat victims.
      They were pretty good back in the 50s and 60s but they’re politicized and stupid now.
      I made the mistake of watching the Oscars last year after not watching for many years.
      It was a big cry in. People were literally crying and moaning about the US and racism.
      The war on women, gay and other perverts rights, and everyone except us straight white males are being treated like victims for some reason.

      I laughed at these clowns through the duration of the show, which was waaaaay to long.

    Here is a link about Homeland Security stepping up to take over federal elections. The author sees it as a coup, justified by the Russia angle.
