      I do not trust Paul Ryan. He is going after Pence acting like the two are best friends. He gave what I believe to be an undercut to Trump during the Inaugural luncheon when he was toasting Pence. He said that no one loves the country more than Pence. IMHO, I think that Ryan is trying to drive a wedge between Trump and Pence. It won’t work, but that is what he is up to.

    So my family and I took a trip to the inauguration from illinois. We had an absolute blast! One of the very funny moments, though, happened coming back from the inauguration on Saturday night. Me and my little brother (sophomore in high school) went into a travel plaza to get some coffee for the night time drive. What we saw was beyond hilarious. 5 buses were stopped at the travel plaza. They were all coming back from the Women’s march. We saw some 200 marching moonbats. They were angry looking, gritty, shaved heads, short hair, ugly, and just all around nasty. My brother and I sat down and literally couldn’t help ourselves from bursting out laughing. Every stereotype you hear about the rabid feminist was there. Sundance’s picture characterizing the women’s march was dead on. Even my father who is almost 60 remarked about how out of the hundreds of women there (many in their 20s and 30s), not one of them was at all attractive. Me thinks these women have an ax to grind with the world and particularly men. I think they hate anything that is beautiful and blame men for their loneliness. Really is kind of sad, when you think about how it affects their lives.On a side note, my little brother now has officially added Feminist to his high school dating filter. According to him though, all the “Trump Girls” at his school are top notch so I guess it doesn’t even matter.

      Is he doing the right thing by those he claims to represent!?!!!!!!!! Wow! Our POTUS is going to actually help the inner city population as well as all Americans Everywhere who want to be helped. The dependent’s savings accounts, portable HSAs, jobs, good economy, safe borders, reasonable amount of immigration, national safety — all of these things and more impact every single one of us and not special programs for special groups. So happy to see Jackson ending his career well. Will help him be redeemed in the history books. Real opportunity to make a difference!

        Jesse is probably looking for a job or some of that investment money.. Sorry to be a bit cynical. Plus, he is an old friend of Trump’s, from what I have read. Maybe he can actually help.

        Speaking of health care, the GOP has to come up with a really good replacement plan or else, they will completely fumble this great opportunity away for generations!

        I think they should really promote coverage through incentives rather through a mandate. I think they should give every middle class and below a refundable tax credit for health care and match up to $500 for individuals and $1500 for families any amount in the tax credit places in a health savings account. I think they should also extend that match to employers by refunding any employer match going into a HSA as well.

        They should allow insurance to be brought over state lines and allow associations health plans in order for small businesses to pool together and bid on health care. They should allow anybody with prexisting conditions to purchase insurance with the tax credit. Get rid of all the mandates and allow people to buy insurance that suits them.

        Maybe mandate insurance offerings that have all of the former Obamacare coverages, but leave it to individuals with their tax credits to determine whether they want all of those things in their insurance.

        I agree that the Left is moving on to the Disempowerment of women now.

        They’ve got the method down with their decimation of the Black Community over the past several decades.

        Now moving on to women, then Latinos, then…etc etc. One “lucky group after another.

      Jesse Jackson was a friend of Trump, remember when Trump was saying someone was on t.v. talking trash about him, then came up to his office and apologized for doing it? He was talking about Jesse Jackson.

      Jesse just goes where the money is, he’s starting to sense that Trump is going to get traction on this so he wants to be the guy Trump calls when he starts turning this around.

      In a few years, much of the black American community is going to be supporting Trump. Jesse may be seeing that coming.

    DHS Whistleblower warns against Muslims uniting with left to take us down (note there was a Muslim woman who was one of the organizers for the Women’s March):

    “.. a benign-sounding Fatwa issued on Nov. 28 after America’s presidential election by the Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America, .. believes is “ominous.” It uses camouflaged language and lays the groundwork for violence when certain civil rights policies, and groups like CAIR, the ACLU or the Southern Poverty Law Center, are threatened by the new administration….
    seeking to deliberately create chaos to destabilize America with “civilization jihad” to “sabotage the miserable house of America.” These anti-American forces are taking advantage of anarchy, hoping to replace our system of government with something preferable to the revolutionaries, like sharia law for Islamists or socialism or communism for others…

    Well if history is a guide, Rush will probably have a sad show tomorrow. His Steelers are getting hammered by the Patriots, currently 36-9.

    Maybe this is why he was so pro-Cruz and not fair to Trump for over a year, DJT and Brady are fairly tight and the Pats have been punching above their weight even with injuries and the ridiculous .inflategate scandal.

    Photoshop challenge … screencap a photo from tonight’s game and paste in Trump as quarterback of the Patriots. Then get the meme to Bo Snerdly to show his boss.

    So, I wasn’t keeping up with any weekend news due to binge watching the last 3 season of Game of Thrones. I just finished and saw an interview with Judge Jeanine on Fox with Ben Stein. He made the comment that the phrase “Make America first again” in the President’s inaugural speech was a Hitler thing. Wow! I never understood it to mean a ‘racial purity’ thing but instead heard it in the context of America including all of its’ citizens, no matter their ethnicity. I used to have a lot of respect for Ben Stein but it’s just taken a nose dive.

      Guess Ben Stein is unaware that we have Americans of all races in the US.

      Probably because he lives and works in some sheltered Bubble World where everyone is “the same”?

      Yes, Ben, those folks that you don’t associate with are EVERY BIT as American as you and your buddies.

      That paper hanger from Austria sure got around a lot.

      Ben Stein has a problem. Actually, he has several. But his ideology is showing. It ain’t pretty. And I am fed up being insulted by half-wits who imply that the voters of Trump are supporting racial hatred.

      FO, Stein. You lost your mojo decades ago.

          When the leftist meme slimes its way into history, truth gets skewered. Charles Lindbergh was neither anti-Semitic nor a Nazi. He was definitely peculiar in his public and personal life (in recent years it was revealed he a bigamist with two simultaneous wives and two sets of children). However, the left hated his politics for many of the same reasons they hate Trump. And the left is very good at getting their version of the truth out to the masses.

          A good book to read about Lindbergh is “Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt” by James P. Duffy.

    Christianity from the West touches Christianity in Russia.
    This woman makes a lot of sense about the lies, evil and political attacks on all Christians by the Ruling Powers.
    She understands Trump, the Christians who backed him, the forces of evil mounted against Christians everywhere.

    I’ve been boycotting football
    The steelers are a great team
    Wisconsin came through for us this year
    That being said
    And I’m not a Patriots fan
    But how fitting
    Tom Brady stood behind President Trump
    Trump sung praises on Brady and this is in fact the year of us Patriots.
    How fitting. What a way to cap off the year
    I can see Tom Brady with President Trump in the White House.
    Or being bullied in Liberal central Boston, Massachusetts, Brady deserves it.

  17. Signs in the protests reading “Not My President” and “F&^%$ Trump.”

    Okay, note to all the corporations moving into the USA and investing heavily for American Manufacturing; look at the job applicant’s social media. If you see these protesters looking for work at your company turn them down. Let them know that they do not get to participate in the new post Obama economy because they themselves said they did not want to. Next….

    “10 Things Learned From 3 Days In Washington D.C.”/

    by Tyler Durden
    Jan 22, 2017 9:15 PM/
    Submitted by John Mauldin via MauldinEconomics.com,/

    “I have been in Washington DC for the last three days. The ostensible reason was to participate in a board meeting of a public company, Ashford Inc. (AINC). We manage hotel REITs that own three hotels here in DC, and the group decided to move our board meeting up a few weeks and hold it in DC during the inauguration. That gave me the opportunity to set up a few meetings to try to gain some insight into what the first 100 days, the first six months, and the first year of the Trump administration might look like.”

    “This is going to be a short letter summarizing my impressions from the last few days. I think it might be easiest to present them in the form of a list.”

    If you listen to the media you might have the impression that the Trump transition team is in complete disarray. Talking with leaders of the transition team certainly didn’t leave me with that impression. They have broken the transition process down into over 30 departments and have created a “landing document” for each department. The analogy they are using is that this process is like planning an invasion, and they are going to hand the landing document off to the “beachhead teams” who will then execute the plans.


    I LOVE POINT #2/ Trump’s management style will drive the media NUTS/
