    NAFTA became poison to when you combine it with illegal immigration for other countries to be cheaper for outsourcing+punish consumers=rich get richer.example mexico cost stay low but Cali costs rises! dnc stolen from middle class by rise taxes=create social benefit=pander to foreigners=dilute GNP. it’s now unusually harder to create new diverse businesses options like tech/medical without already huge capital/connections

    Why Hollywood Movie Attendance Continues To Fall..!..

    Hollywood’s Liberal Elites of La La Land’s – Tinsel Town Studios continue to drive their customer base away.

    Story From the KJ Kingsjester’s Blog;

    The thing is, not only has Hollywood run out of ideas, their chosen Political Ideology of Liberalism and their penchant for championing it in their movies has succeeded in driving their customer base away.

    The Hollywood “Elite” on the Left of the Political Spectrum, who voted for Hillary Clinton to be our next President of the United States of America, and who covered for Serial Abuser Harvey Weinstein for decades, continue in public to show their hindquarters, while throwing the longest temper tantrum that the world has ever seen over the results of an American Presidential Election, that happened over one year ago.

    These self-proclaimed activists, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.

    In fact, these sore losers remind me of the hysterically sobbing children that you hear in every Walmart across the country.

    It’s not that those children are crying because they are physically hurt. Just like these Hollywood Liberals, they’re crying because they did not get their way.

    This epic meltdown by those who are paid handsomely to entertain us is a direct result of an isolated ignorance of average Americans’ desire to rid ourselves of those in the Halls of Power who told us repeatedly that they knew what was best for us and “who we were”, while their actual mission was to turn America into a Third-World Barrio in their quest to make us a Socialist Paradise.

    All during the Presidential Campaign, the Democratic Party, along with those in “Showbiz”, through their minions in the Main Stream Media, assured us that it was a foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would be our 45th president.

    There is a reason for that.

    They are completely and totally disconnected from reality.

    The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

    Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run the Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town, who insist on turning every awards show on television into an Anti-Trump Hate-fest, never saw actually saw Trump’s victory coming in the first place.

    At this point, all their incessant national temper tantrum is doing, is making them look like fools, as evidenced by the continuing decline in box office returns.

    As I have written before, I don’t remember any of us average Americans asking them for their opinion as to how we should vote, do you?

    Their own haughtiness and super-sized egos have cost the Hollywood Liberal Hierarchy untold millions of dollars by allowing their own preconceived prejudices about average Americans and our “lack of intelligence” to drive a wedge between them and American Moviegoers.

    The Hollywood Elite, as clearly demonstrated by the Harvey Weinstein Scandal and the self-serving, hypocritical “Me, Too” Movement, has no use for the ethics and morals of average Americans, until it is economically and politically expedient for them to erroneously claim that they do, indeed, share our values.

    A claim which is proven to be false the moment they release another movie which glorifies evil or attacks American Values and/or America itself.

    There is an old adage that warns “Do not bite the hand that feeds you.”

    Hollywood not only bit the hands of average American Moviegoers in America’s Heartland, it has gnawed on them for over a decade.

    And now, those smug Liberals in Hollywood are finding out that another old adage is true…

    Payback’s a b!tch.

      “We are preparing … and once again we believe that we can prove the Trump administration acted arbitrarily and capriciously. If Donald Trump wants to change the law, he shouldn’t break the law,” he said, according to The Sacramento Bee

      “In a democracy you don’t do it this way. Maybe if you’re king you can make changes without having to follow the law, but not in America.”

    There Are 3.6M ‘DREAMers’ – a number far greater than commonly known

    Alan Gomez, USA TODAY Published 2:49 p.m. ET Jan. 18, 2018 | Updated 4:20 p.m. ET Jan. 18, 2018

    A small group of senators spoke on the floor Wednesday, urging their peers to pass what they say is a bipartisan DACA solution before the looming March 5th deadline. (Jan. 17) AP

    The political debate over the fate of “DREAMers” — undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children — has overlooked just how many there are in the country today: about 3.6 million.

      Except that those are the ones that didn’t take advantage of the program so they are just plain old illegal immigrants.

      Calling them dreamers is like calling me a lottery winner, because I was eligible to buy a ticket but didn’t bother.

      Just a scam for the dems to expand amnesty, and they are including the parents, so we are looking at 10 or so million.

      I believe the “800,000” are illegal “kids” registered under DACA, while the 3.6M are the estimated total of all illegal “children”.

      Doesn’t that mean that 2.8M illegal “children” did not register because they knew they had a criminal record????

      DACA is so pathetic — it doesn’t provide that the people who apply and FAIL to qualify get sent home! The DACA logic is heads I win, tails I don’t lose!!

      Great to see POTUS always hold on to handrails — it is STUPID for anyone, especially anyone over 60, even in good heath, to NOT use a handrail when available. And it is STUPID for MSM to criticize him for doing so.

    KC Council Vows to Protect Dreamers from “Aggressive Government Raids, Detention Centers, and Life-Altering Deportations”
    18 Jan 2018

    “But here is the rub. Some 44 percent of those currently employed–and 60 percent of those over 25–were working before Obama enacted DACA. Among the “confidential information” that the Obama administration consciously chose not to ask for was the illegal social security numbers these workers used to secure employment.

    According to the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), this decision “ensured that Americans who are the victims of DACA identity theft were left with destroyed credit, arrest records attached to their names, unpaid tax liabilities, and corrupted medical records while the DACA recipients walked away scot-free from multiple felonies — forgery, Social Security fraud, perjury on I-9 forms, and identity theft.””
    “The memo, co-authored by former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri, called on Democrats in Congress to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.” The reason for the concern: Dreamers represent a “critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success.”

    It is easier to import voters, the Dems figure, than to unbury the dead.”


    Jennifer Palmieri is one FUGLY person, inside and out, as worthless as ILLary Clinton & family.

    Illegal Alien Stabbing Suspect Is Seven-Time Deported Felon

    Weeks after Eulalio Miniz Orozco was arrested in December as the suspect in a California restaurant stabbing, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has revealed that he has been deported seven times and has multiple criminal convictions on his record.
    Orozco, 39, was arrested on December 27, allegedly for the December 21 stabbing of a 61-year-old man at Santa Rosa’s Lola’s Supermarket, according to local Fox2 News. The two men had been sitting at separate tables and had not spoken when the elderly man was attacked, according to local authorities. Video surveillance provided authorities with images of Orozco.

    GOP lawmakers demand that ‘alarming’ memo on FISA abuses be made public
    Fox News

    A four-page memo circulating in Congress that reveals United States government surveillance abuses is being described by lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.

    Speaking with Fox News, the lawmakers said they could not yet discuss the contents of the memo they reviewed on Thursday after it was released to members by the House Intelligence Committee. But they say the memo should be immediately made public.

    “It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said.

    “It’s troubling. It is shocking,” North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows said. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”

    Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz said he believed people could lose their jobs after the memo is released.

    “I believe the consequence of its release will be major changes in people currently working at the FBI and the Department of Justice,” he said, referencing DOJ officials Rod Rosenstein and Bruce Ohr.

    “You think about, ‘is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is,” Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry said.

      Congressman Matt Gaetz Issues Statement Demanding Intelligence Committee Release Classified Memo on DOJ and FBI to Public After Viewing Document
      January 18, 2018 | Press Release

      Washington, D.C. — Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) today released the following statement after reviewing information from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, including a memo held in the Congressional Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) that contained previously-undisclosed information involving the Federal Bureau of Intelligence (FBI) and Department of Justice (DOJ).

      “The House must immediately make public the memo prepared by the Intelligence Committee regarding the FBI and the Department of Justice. The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency. There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy,” Rep. Gaetz said.

  43. The democrats need to be careful, if they shut down the government,
    Trump may never fully reopen the government.
    Trump is going to crush the left if the democrats shut down the government.
    Because Trump will make the government work anyway,
    and show that we can get by with a fraction of what we are spending.
    And this will spotlight a lot of unnecessary government functions and reveal a lot of unnecessary government people.
    These liberal fools do not know their enemy very well,
    and that is
    So not Sun Tzu
