    Dems… Now arguing against a self-imposed rule (Rule XIX) that actually protects all of them from potential public disgrace at the hands of their colleagues.

    They are all dirty enough to appreciate such a rule; yet, they still argue. SMH

      I am a big Trump fan, I am just so thrilled that he is our President. So many of my friends and relatives are just so happy that he won the hearts and minds of Americans and that so many millions of people voted for him. What I just want to say here, is that I hope that President Trump will not compromise with those rogue political judges that are trying to take America in a direction that we do not want to go. I hope that President Trump will go directly to the Supreme Court and forget about these Judges manipulated by Obama and the rest of the communists, as President Trump has done nothing as President regarding the travel of certain groups of people that may want to do us harm as they have done to us in the past, and about controlling the borders. Trump has the better case than these bad Judges and this way if he wins in the Supreme Court, he can do what he told the American people he would do about keeping Islamic terrorists out of here and/or sending them to jail or back to where they come from. If President Trump COMPROMISES with these bad Judges, they would stop him from doing EVERYTHING he can do to keep them out of here. If he compromises there will be even more lawsuits if people know that he had to compromise and its bad enough that the nuts out there will still file lawsuits to try to get rid of Trump with a coup. Trump must get some outside attorneys and Sessions would be better than the one that went to Court today. President Trump must always be prepared because there is a coup that the democrat communists are fighting with all their might to pull off. I hope that President Trump or his staff will read my message along with the many other messages that we are sending to him to wish him well and send some ideas that maybe, just maybe, will help put an end to this madness on the part of the anti-American globalists who really do hate this country and want to give our beautiful country away for nothing without our consent because the liberals democratic party are very low-class today and seem uneducated with their lies and filthy rhetoric, they sound so low, so stupid and so mean. If they can have the Fake Indian as one of their leaders, then we know they are dumb as dirt with nothing but hatred for America and American people in their hearts. This communist party which they are now are so rough, so tough, so low, it boggles the mind, the way they talk and lie about people, thinking that is how they will get back the power? No way. God, please protect us from these awful people that have no morals, no honesty, no integrity, nothing. Thank you. God Bless our President Donald J. Trump.

      Really enjoying Hatch speaking right now. He sounds so very reasonable and his point of view explains why he didn’t fight dirty and bend rules against Obama and the Dems when they were in power. He is saying repeatedly that the Dems lost and he understands why they are upset. It was a great talk.

      Both sides? He must be kidding. Both sides my foot! One side, the communist side that wants to let in all the muslim terrorists not ’cause they care for them, JUST FOR THE VOTES THEY COULD GET OFF OF THEM –All the communists are so desperate these days. They don’t care if more Americans get killed from terrorists, like in Florida, New York, California, etc., etc. How low these liberals are, anything to get back the power. So transparent. so low-class in their speaking and lieing about Trump and about Sessions, and the rest of the cabinet, No couth, no shame, no nothing, just screaming and yelling and getting Soros to pay for big marches. The Fake Indian is the best, she is the model for the democratic party with her poison mouth every time she speaks. They can have big marches but half of 350 MILLION, MAYBE MORE, Americans voted for Trump!

      The Senate was known for ages for it’s decorum, even when there were massive disagreements on particular issues. The House has always been more…er…flamboyant. Hatch is on the right side of this. Warren was shameful in not only denigrating Senator Sessions, but perpetuating a blood libel against him. Shame on her.

      The Senate is a vital part of our system. If Hatch doesn’t stand up for it and demand proper behavior, who will? At least he’s trying to keep some semblance of decency in what is supposed to be the more deliberative body of Congress.

            Speaking of shopping – the Muslim invasion has absolutely ruined the Mall of America.

            We visit Minnesota almost every year because our family has property there, so we stop at the mall and go to the the indoor amusement park.

            Two summers ago when we went, every concession and ride was staffed by Somalis. The women were all wearing hijabs and the men were creepy. It felt very uncomfortable having my family’s safety in the hands of these refugees.

            A lot of the Minneapolis airport employees are Somali too. It seems weird to me that refugees who could pose a threat would be hired for these jobs where they need to interact with the the public and there is a safety component to their employment.

            I also question their basic qualifications when they can barely speak English. Maybe they are hired because their employers are compensated by the government, so they don’t have to pay them much. It’s bizarre to me.

This is what Obama had always dreamed of, overrunning America with immigrants and he’s still at it behind the scenes with Soros, and there’s Schumer who is all for it and all the other commies, even Feinstein, get ’em all in here and then they will vote for the communists. And as far as the communists are all concerned, we are all racists and bigots because we want to keep America, America.

    Watch Mitch McConnell Shut Down Elizabeth Warren for Attack on Jeff Sessions

    Hours after staging a 24-hour talkathon against Betsy DeVos’ nomination for education secretary, Senate Democrats were back at it Tuesday night. This time, Republicans had the last word.

    As the Senate debated the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., delivered a blistering critique. She accused Sessions of trying to “chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens.”

    That’s when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stepped in to call out Warren for violating Senate Rule 19—impugning the motives and conduct of Sessions.

    The Senate proceeded to vote, 49-43, prohibiting Warren from speaking throughout the remainder of the debate on Sessions.

He was not for voter suppression or diminishing voter’s rights.
