    • Liberals like the way that Islamist rules people, no voting no opposition, the people at the top just issue fatwas or proclamations.
      Liberals fantasize themselves being the rulers but their Shari would be statism.
      Liberals also liked communism for the same reason but Islam has more control so they like it better.
      Liberals embrace of Islam which is the opposite of feminism and gay rights is proof that liberalism is a complete fraud.
      Their purpose is to gain power, to use power to control people and retain to power forever.
      Minorities are just the liberals useful idiots.

        muslims also fantasize about a sharia utopia.

        I don’t think the liberals like islam as much as islamists like the liberals. To islamists there is no liberal and conservative, only believers and non-believers. There are certain sects of muslims that the islamists regard no different than if they were Jews. These are the groups of muslims being slaughtered by ISIS.
        Islamists attach themselves to liberals as a mean of furthering their cause.

        Great. Very close. Just that number is way too many.

        (updates worldwide attacks, always going up, unfortunately)

        They say OK to lie to non-believers. Is reform movement a ‘slight of hand’ trick? Will be monitoring that. Even if so, there is good also.

        Islam created 600 years after Christianity as an opposition, inter-twined with politics.
        Declare war against all 2 Billion+ muslims? Not realistic. Their defense is to spread out into opposition land, stay in same spot and maybe someone says, it is realistic.

        Since religion is inter-twined in politics, to defeat religion you must destroy all nations that are muslim.
        Nuking all muslim countries is surely feasible but not realistic.
        Fighting terrorism and allowing islam countries to continue to be islam countries while not supporting terrorism is best reasonable thinking.
        US is allies with many nations it has disagreements with. US has very friendly relationships with nations that are not allies.

    Re Pizzagate: This may be a BIGGIE for Insider info. Worth the read anyway.

    Ex Intel Steve Pieczenik tweeted this about info about Pizzagate (Pedofile ring elites are involved in).

    I don’t think he’d refer to it unless he knew it was true also. Info comes from alleged DHS Insider and another exCIA guy, Robert Steele. I’ve seen it elsewhere also.


    This also matches the arrests that have been made re sex trafficking busts already:

    Syria – US commits to protecting Manbij against Turkish attacks, providing heavy weapons – reports

    So after 100 days at Al-Bab which cost them 3,000 casualties, Turkey has decided that they don’t want to stick their hand into Raqqah, instead they made a hard turn and are now attacking Manbij which is held by “very silly” wing of the Free Syrian Army. It is the very silly wing because it is committed to fighting just about everyone in Syria EXCEPT ISIS.

      Answers my question from a couple of pages back. Yes it is the national debt. Yes the government is taking in more than it spends.

      If sustained, it’s a surplus, folks, a genuine surplus not the phony one of Bill Klinton.

        Right. Bill Klinton made Social Security taxable income during his administration so he could feign surpluses. Nuff said.

          Actually it was worse than that…he simply “borrowed” i.e., stole, from the fund.

          Somehow the government showed a surplus (because SS isn’t included in the budget) yet the debt continued to grow.

          And the GOP controlled congress went along with it, eager to claim they forced Klinton to balance the budget.

            Al Gore was the deciding vote in the Senate to tax SS.


            • SteveInCO says:

              Yeah, but it is a different subject.

              A tax on SS would actually have helped balance the books because it was additional income for the government. What I am talking about is totally different, a shell game they used to claim surpluses that didn’t exist.

              • WSB says:

                SS was not considered income before that. This is what created pthe false surplus. SS was moved to the income column. And then taxed.


                • SteveInCO says:

                  No. Because the taxes would have been a genuine help to the balance sheet. They can in no way have contributed to a false surplus. The taxes are real, regardless of whether they reclassified SS as income to get them, or not.

                  What I am talking about is the US government loaning itself money from the trust fund back when SS was running a surplus. As a result a lot of the “Trust fund” is just a bunch of IOUs from the Federal government that it will have to pay back by either raising taxes, or borrowing that money (again) from somewhere else. Or by defaulting on social security payments.

                  Totally different thing.

      Can I also point out that the article underestimates what he has saved us on the national debt because it doesnt calculate what it would have went up to had it not been going down.


      This says we would be at 19.979 instead of 19.139

      Looks like 60 Billion to me.

    Thomas Perez Dropped Voter Intimidation Charges Against Black Panthers Who Brought Weapons to Polling Place

      “The Department of Justice whistleblower who resigned over the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case said President Barack Obama’s labor secretary nominee Thomas Perez is the “most extreme cabinet nominee in 70 years.”

      J. Christian Adams, who worked for Perez at the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division, sent a stern warning to the U.S. Senate about Perez’s policies.

      “Different business groups who don’t think the nominee matters should pay close attention to Perez’s record,” Adams said in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon. “People like Perez are very skillful at creatively ignoring the law to suit their own ends.”

    Trump cuts off Hollywood’s financing with his strong China policy??? A twofer!!!


    Talks broke down between MGM and several Chinese companies late last year, an apparent casualty of China’s move to stanch capital outflows that has stalled the country’s shopping spree in Hollywood, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The change comes after years of Chinese companies striking large deals, including the $3.5 billion acquisition of Legendary Entertainment in 2016 and a $1 billion film-financing infusion for Paramount Pictures last month.

    Beijing’s capital-control policy, which began in November, has kept deals such as the $1 billion acquisition of Dick Clark Productions by real-estate conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group Co. from closing, according to people familiar with the matter, and scuttled the takeover of smaller production companies.

    The new dynamic highlights Hollywood’s dependence on China, where the slightest change in state policy has ripple effects across the entertainment industry. China’s deep pockets have become a frequent topic of speculation and intrigue among entertainment executives, some of whom see the country as full of prospective buyers willing to pay high premiums for flashy Hollywood holdings.

    The economic-policy changes in China come amid mounting protectionist rhetoric in the U.S. from the administration of President Donald Trump.
