    Those who think Bannon doesn’t back Tillerson… watch this. https://www.facebook.com/Breitbart/videos/10160040761845354/ It’s a FP presentation at the Hudson Institute. Qatar & MB are topics of discussion. It’s a worthy listen.

      Bannon backs Bannon. Anything else is just window-dressing.


      • mariner says:

        Did you hear him say anything in that presentation that you found objectionable?

        Many people decide what they believe about Bannon based largely on what other people claim he believes, what he says or what he does.

        I’d prefer to listen to what he says and make up my own mind. If he acts differently than he speaks then it’s necessary to reconcile the two.

          One day everyone will acknowledge Bannon’s sins were nothing more than returning one of the two major parties to the people. Where the Tea Party failed being coopted, Bannon will not.

    What are the chances of McConnell bringing all of PDJT’s nominations up soon in the Senate for a vote? And, what about the bills that haven’t been brought up – they have any chance soon? And, do you think he’ll have the Senate go on recess over the Holidays (ANY of them!) so the President can make a recess appointment when he fires Sessions? Just curious. Or, am I just wishing and hoping for too much?

      That’s actually a great cause. I was one of those few kids who would focus on kids eating alone and try to include them. There were way too many kids like that, and too few who do the inviting. Peer Pressure or something, I guess.

      Thanks Melania for stepping up on this issue.

        “That’s actually a great cause. “

        No it is not. Children have to learn how to deal with bullies and how to deal with shunning. How to stand on their own two feet. It is WRONG to wrap kids in cotton batting and then expect them to magically turn into adults at age 18.

        And yes, I am well aware of the issue since I was bullied and shunned as a child.

          Russia, India, China, Brazil, Italy, Vietnam, are not running anti-bullying campaigns.
          The kindness of Christian nature puts us at a natural disadantage when dealing in the third world, or on the global stage. We’re innocent and naive. Took me a while to understand it and I was completely ill-prepared. It cost me money and THAT hurt more than any insult.

    I stupidly watched Tucker’s show tonight and can feel the blood pressure rising. The level of idiotic talking points from the leftist hacks he interviews is so removed from reality that one would not be faulted for thinking this was a parody.

    1. Hack trying to defend HRC uranium deal: basically said that the right is making such a big deal of this nothingburger so it must mean that they (the right) have something big to hide; he goes on to say there is “zero evidence” of this – the left loves that talking point- have they ever heard of circumstantial evidence, connecting the dots- no- unless they have a recording of Hillary asking for 145 million in exchange for signing off on the deal – they go with the “zero evidence” talking point and I am quite sure they correctly assume that their sheeple followers will all go out tomorrow and mimic the talking point they heard. When asked if Bill would receive 500,000 for a speech today in Russia – he tried to make it as if that this was what the market was willing to pay.

    2. Another hack called in to discuss Pelosi comments that she should stay as leader because we did not get a woman president so need a female in high office. Hack states Pelosi represents all women, she is not bought and paid for (WTF are you kidding me) and not only should women be represented but there are 62 other genders out there and ideally they should all be represented

    3. Finally left wing California radio host brought in to discuss the fact that intentionally infecting someone with HIV is now misdemeanor with potential of only up to 6 mos in jail as contrasted with new law on the books stating repeatedly miscalling someone in long term care facilities by the wrong gender i.e. not calling them according to that patient’s preference, is punishable by up to one year in jail. Hacks reply: we are trying to prevent elder abuse and HIV infection is no longer really a death sentence like it was years ago.

    The world is losing their minds…..

        That’s why Tucker got beat up by a girl (Maddow). He’s basically a Pussy.

          If something like that happened I’m certainly not interested in watching it, but Carlson is a better man than I.

          I watched it for a while and I was dismayed at the way Carlson let people talk over him instead of having an intelligent discussion. Then it occurred to me that one of the reasons for his show is to let stupid leftists mouth off so we hear them in their own words.

          I’m not as upset as I was, but I still leave when it gets too deep.

      “Hack states Pelosi represents all women” —- BARF GAG, She does not represent ME!


    • Bendix says:

      In fact, giving out the false impression that HIV doesn’t eventually kill you leads to a false sense of security, which leads to a higher rate of transmission and more deaths. I know this is happening, it is inarguable.
      PC kills.

    For all those who love Europe and Western civ, please read.


    1. Europe belongs to us, and we belong to Europe. Europe is our home; we have no other.
    2. A false Europe threatens us.
    3. The false Europe is utopian and tyrannical.
    4. We must defend the real Europe.

    5. The true Europe expects and encourages active participation. Solidarity and civic loyalty encourage active participation.
    6. A European spirit of unity allows us to trust others in the public square, even when we are strangers. We are not passive subjects.
    7. The true Europe is a community of nations. We have our own languages, traditions and borders. The nation-state is a hallmark of Europe.

    8. A national community takes pride in governing itself in its own way….We do not back an imposed, enforced unity.
    9. Christianity encouraged cultural unity.
    10. Christian roots nourish Europe.
    11. Classical roots encourage excellence.
    12. The true Europe has never been perfect….[o]ur shared life is an ongoing project.

    13. The true Europe is in jeopardy. We are losing our home.
    14. A false freedom prevails.
    15. Individualism, isolation, and aimlessness are widespread.
    16. We are regulated and managed.
    17. Multiculturalism is unworkable.
    18. There is a great deal of bad faith in this thinking. Bad faith grows.
    19. Technocratic tyranny increases.
    20. The false Europe is fragile and impotent.
    21. A culture of repudiation has taken hold.
    22. Elites arrogantly parade their virtue.
    23. There is an alternative.

    24. We must turn back ersatz religion.
    25. We must restore a true liberalism.
    26. We need responsible statesmen.
    27. We should renew national unity and solidarity.
    28. Only empires are multicultural.
    29. A proper hierarchy nourishes social well-being.
    30. We must restore moral culture.
    31. Markets need to be ordered toward social ends.
    32. Education needs to be reformed.
    33. Marriage is the foundation of civil society and the basis for harmony between men and women. Marriage and family are essential.

    34. There is great anxiety…because of the rise of what is called ‘populism’…used mostly as invective. Populism should be engaged.
    35. Our future is the true Europe.
    36. We must take responsibility.


    In May 2017, a group of conservative scholars and intellectuals met in Paris. They were brought together by their common concern about the current state of European politics, culture, society—and above all the state of the European mind and imagination. Through delusion and self-deception and ideological distortion, Europe is dissipating her great civilizational inheritance.
