    #MAGA “President Trump has disbanded a 15 person committee whose job was to interpret a 13 agency, 600+ page climate report, and tell the President what to do. But the credibility of the report is in tatters, after it was discovered that the authors edited out a highly embarrassing section from an earlier draft, which would have distracted from their doomsday narrative.”

      Personally saw two buses going thru my town last summer to “protest” at a Trump rally and then attend a Clinton rally the next day in the same area. Would wager this is true. Thx for the vid.

      God bless Steve and his family. The lack of support/good wishes/empathy/ whatever you want to call it from Congress and media is pathetic and malignant as you can get. Just like the concern for Seth RIch. We truly have sociopaths in elected office and in the media.

    All the others just talk talk talk about a possible EMP and other catastrophes (looking at YOU, Obama).

    It took a Trump to finally do something.

    “On August 23rd, FEMA and the United States Department of Energy will stage…a scenario which will result in a (simulated) long duration power outrage on a sub-continental scale with the gradual failings of other infrastructures.”

    “the time has come to plan properly for this kind of doomsday scenario”

    I live in NW Indiana, right by the Illinois line. There is a house near mine and for as long as I have lived here (11 years), he has flown the American Flag on a pole outside and right beneath that, he has a Confederate flag. And every day, a group of black boys – all teenagers – walk past this house on their way to school and on their way to play basketball in the park. And even after everything that has happened in the past couple of weeks, the man is still flying that flag and that group of boys still walk right past his house without even looking at it. I don’t know if they see it and just choose to ignore it or if they see it and just don’t care. But what they don’t do is attack this man and his house for flying it.

    I definitely don’t watch the news or listen to the liberals around me. I just read the stories on this site and I watch my neighborhood to know what’s what.

    QE, bye!

    I trust Trump implicitly. He has agonized over this decision, I have read. He knows the big picture and certainly has more info than any of us do.

    And i am laughing at all the never Trumpers who pretended to be for him since the inauguration, only to be waiting for their moment to “withdraw” their support.

    Tucker Carlson just now said McCarthyism was about smearing people unfairly with beliefs of those they had nothing in common with.

    I so like Tucker but could he have clear point and counterpoint to his own understanding of history?

    McCarthyism was the leftwing projection to smear Senator Joe McCarthy and his colleagues to identify and remove Communists from the White House. The Left tried to villify him for actually doing the job of removing these subversives and anyone else who tried to. But smearing against all beliefs…odd. Period.

      Mc Carthy was vindicated, the problem is that practically nobody wants to recognize it. For reasons I dont understand everybody is scare of the left, they will do anything just to be appreciated by the left. Sad

        You just diagnosed the primary cause of our sickness and what could become our total social collapse — fear of the Left.

        In just 9 days the Left has scared almost every city, county and college across America to condemn, remove or publicly contemplate the removal of statues that have stood for decades if not centuries. That is fear speaking. No one gets such power without striking fear in people.

        We need a “you have nothing to fear but fear itself” speech from Trump. The scourge of the Left MUST be confronted.

    Cool responses by Victor Davis Hanson private papers to Angry Reader:

    3) The most negative word I’ve seen you use to describe the current President is “uncouth”. So, what level of uncouthness would disqualify a man from this office? In other words, if his policies meet your approval, is it “anything goes” for you, in terms of a candidate or office-holder’s personal behavior?

    3) What uncouth behavior would separate Trump’s message from Trump the messenger to such a degree that I would withdraw support? Perhaps if Trump 1) had sexual relations in the Oval Office bathroom with a young female intern assigned to him, and then lied about it and smeared her; or 2) I learned that Trump approved the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium holdings to Russian interests while in office, even as his wife got huge honoraria from the Russians and his foundation suddenly found itself showered with gifts. If he invites a rapper into the White House whose ankle bracelet goes off, I’ll give him a pass.

    Candace Owens is over-the-top wonderful. Here’s her new vid. The only thing I’d add is that MOST of what she says also applies to college students and other “groups” who blindly vote Dem, just cuz it’s the “community group think”:

      THAT was a great article! Just sent it to everyone I know. (All two of ’em.)


    • sunnydaze says:

      Really good article. The only possibility he doesn’t mention is, a few more years of this crap from the GOPe, and Trump could take his GOP supporters and voters and just start a new party.

      Wouldn’t bother me a bit.


      • Niagara Frontier says:

        No! Keep the party, the infrastructure and especially the automatic ballot access it gives us. (Who has time to go out and get signatures to get on a ballot knowing that the two parties have already rigged the system against new/3rd parties.

        All that is too important to give up. Make the GOPe and other traitors and slime leave and start their own new party. We’ll keep the GOP and remake it.

          Yeah, that’s the easiest alternative. Just kick out every RINO. Hope we can do that.

          But if push comes to shove, new Parties HAVE started in the past (ie. the Republican Party).

          There are plenty of Trump supporting Repubs reps who could come with.

      Great article. Thanks for posting. But what to do. Easy if they are primaried. In 2016 we dumped Kirk in Illinois, but he would be just as bad as Duckworth in the Senate undermining our President just like he did in the Republican primary and the Election. Flake is DOA. If Corker is up for Re-election, he must go too. Losing these never Trumpers will be a good start.


      • sunnydaze says:

        Ditto for Ryan. He’s a spring chicken compared to many of them, and could be in for a loooong time if we don’t ditch him.

        > But what to do. Easy if they are primaried.<

        That's the key, if we can primary at least a significant number of these a-holes, the rest will finally get the message. That, coupled with an influx of new, President Trump supporting Congressmen, we should finally be able to make some real progress on the trump agenda.

        We have to take some of them down. Dems too.

    Top Institutions and Economists Now Say Globalization Increases Inequality

    “The National Bureau of Economic Research – the largest economics research organization in the United States…published a report in May finding:
    Recent globalization trends have increased U.S. inequality by disproportionately raising top incomes.”

    “NBER explains that globalization allows executives to gain the system to their advantage”

    “the Bank for International Settlements goes further, however, arguing that financial globalisation itself makes booms and busts far more frequent and destabilising than they otherwise would be.”

    “the angry working class…appears to have understood what the experts are only belatedly finding to be true: The benefits from trade to the American economy may not always justify its costs.

    We told them. They never listen.

    Anyone know anything about Pensacola Christian College? They kicked this kid out for wearing a Confed uniform and carrying the flag at a monument.

    I saw the vid of him. He was completely surrounded by Antifa Fascists and being very peaceful. Vid is at the link.

    Even the cop was pissed at the Lefty jerks.

    Does Trump and Sessions and the DOJ have any plans to stop Antifa? Is this the new reality we just have to accept — violence, vandalism and riots targeting conservatives? I didn’t vote for a martyr, I voted for a fighter. I don’t care about Afghanistan, I care about our home. How about a speech on Antifa, Leftist violence and respect for social order?
