    When I try to explain to the America haters that I meet constantly on my travels that America is a very safe country away from it’s cities they simply do not believe me.

    Murders in US very concentrated: 54% of US counties in 2014 had zero murders, 2% of counties have 51% of the murders

      Exactly! My foreign friend when he first came here, was expecting to see shootings on every street corner.
      One of my more traveled relatives was just telling me how in European countries you are much more likely to have some stranger come up to you on the street and try to start something with you, than in America.
      I live in a place with a high crime rate, but in my neighborhood crime is nearly nonexistent. When you have the same small number of people committing a lot of crimes against each other, it skews the statistics.

    USS THEODORE ROOSEVELT aircraft carrier, along with its strike group taken battle positions in the Persian Gulf. In the Mediterranean Sea, the US 6th Fleet has deployed surface ships and submarine units.

    Syria is getting ready to explode. Looks like US-Russian military confrontation,

    “seems to be dramatic conversations taking place between U.S and Russian military officials: U.S has informed them on the planned strikes but Gerasimov has threatend to take out the U.S warships if Assad or Russian troops hit”

        To say the least. What the deep state and neocons are attempting here is nothing short of the ultimate revenge on Donald Trump. Remember, they hate and despise him like no-one else for his repeated brutal takedowns of Bush43 and the Iraq War, especially the framing of it as wasted trillions of dollars on nothing while our infrastructure crumbles. He really REALLY ticked them off and came this close to calling them traitors. They can never forgive this.

        So how can they get even? By doing the unthinkable and dragging Trump into doing their bidding, and even exceeding (!) what they managed under Dumbo. Unlike the earlier Obama bombings of ISIS zones ( doubtful Constitutionality as they were ), that missile strike last year and the more recent killed troops were specifically on Assad/Russia elements which is much further way from any legal stretch of the imagination since Russia was actually invited there and we were not and likely never will be ( neocon mission accomplished ).

        Here is the tragedy for Trump and all of us … Syria was a perfect opportunity for Trump to call the deep state and neocon bluff by demanding Congress pass clear authorization ( act of war equivalent ) for these actions against Syria/Assad/Russia. Tell them to put up or shut up. Literally drag their warmongering butts into the White House, in camera, have them present their case and evidence and then send them back to the Hill to authorize their little war.

        That recent attack that killed Russians is especially problematic, and just what the neocons love because it will mean that Americans will be killed in retaliation someday, somewhere, somehow. Then, the neocons rinse/repeat about evil Assad/Russia and the spiral continues. Quite an elaborate and evil attack on the President they absolutely despise.

      If you read the article, it sounds like this is a re-iteratiion of the news from the election ca. 2016. Just re-printed w/ todays date.

      At any rate, this *did* in fact happen for the Prez Election in 2016. And it’s pretty clear that many of those “new Republicans” do not vote in more local elections.

      But! At least they helped us elect Trump. And maybe they’ll be good for some statewide elections.

      And maybe someday, they’ll start voting MAGA at the more local elections.

        Agree, sunny – not buying these ‘new’ R’s from the D rolls are anything but, RINOs – we already know about the Uniparty – if they can swing back and forth from ‘big’ government to ‘small’ government – that tells me – there is no difference – we need to get a better handle on the ‘voting process’ – before we can affect change – the two-party system does not work – we know that already – so what is this guy selling anyway – whatever it is – I am not buying.

    • It is not about Russia it is about Putin.
      Putin’s is a bad guy, the tension is only his fault.
      Not the mistical “Neocorn Neocons”
      The USA is for “self ownership” and Putin’s is for gaining the power to rule over people.
      That makes us the good guys and Putin the bad guy!
      This is not false flag, just false reasoning.

        Should have though. Russia could have been a friendly rival instead of an enemy. We have much more in common with Russia than we do either the EU or China. The neocons need an excuse to keep throwing money at NATO. This is what all of this is really about, money. As per usual.

      But she just couldn’t bring herself to condemn those others that do it.

      And if I follow her correctly, Christianity should be kept private or I guess in a closet.
      But if you’re a Muslim you should wear it, dress it and protect and defend it. And never speak poorly about it.

      The left successfully tossed God out of the nation’s schools. When the Parkland kid asked God why He would allow such violence in the classroom, God answered, because I am no longer allowed in schools.

      She got into a rousing argument on Outnumbered on FNN the other day. I forget who the guy was on the couch with her, but holy moly she is just a harpy when she gets going. I cannot stand her and she speaks just like the rest of the leftists—loud, annoyingly and not very nice. She is probably a fairly smart woman but who can tell with the way she talks to people.

    I ran for school board many years ago and in the process learned a sad lesson. When the other candidates and I were established we were all invited to a luncheon where we were introduced to the Distrct Superintendent. Then a lecture was given in which we were told that our job was to get behind the agenda of the Super. Wait a minute. I thought the job of a board member was to watch out for the good of the taxpayers. These Superintendents are brought in with a agenda and it is usually against the wishes of the tax payers and the best interest of the students. They do their work, pass their agenda (often subversly) and by doing so become unwanted and they resign fat and happy and move on DAMAGE DONE.

    Report: GOP Leadership Is Going To Fund Sanctuary Cities

    Liked by 2 people

    • All these people need to voted out or shamed into leaving.
      What are the optics of funding sanctuary cities or States right now? It’s not the will of the taxpayer or the American citizen.

      But it does start the trend by doing it making it harder to stop it later on.
      This is the problem with people illegally in the USA. At first it was 3 million. Then ten million. And anywhere from 14 to 20 million.
      Now we have DACA, the real good ones, the almost good ones and the not as bad as some other ones. It’s a total mess.

      I’m not sorry to say this at all. But until seniors get more money. Until Vets are treated properly, until crime and drug use is brought under control, and until our infrastructure is rebuilt, I have no will or desire to send one dollar on someone here illegally.

      Sanctuary cities are right at the top of the list of “Not on MY Taxes” list.
      You want them here, you pay. NO Federal money.

    There is a huge “incoming” expose on Cambridge Analytica all over the place. Sundance already did a blurb on this outfit when they were working for Ted Cruz… and I want you all to keep in mind that Obama was the very first to use the exact same methods.

    The only reason this is happening is because it WORKED for a Republican to win the WH. It also worked for Obama to win the WH, but apparently, it is okay for a D to do so..

    Facebook has banned them. Mueller is investigating. Media blitz on the way.

    How McConnell and Chao Used Political Power To Make Their Family Rich/
    By Larry Getlen March 17, 2018 | 10:26pm

    Peter Schweizer new book, “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends excerpt:

    “In 2004, current Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, current US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, had an average net worth of $3.1 million. Ten years later, that number had increased to somewhere between $9.2 million and $36.5 million.

    One source of the windfall, according to a new book from Peter Schweizer, was a 2008 gift from Chao’s father, James Chao, for somewhere between $5 million and $25 million. But this gift could be seen as more than just a gift. It may have been acquired, according to Schweizer, thanks to the couple’s fealty to China, the source of the Chao family fortune. And that fealty may have occurred at the expense of the nation they had pledged to serve.”

    Mitch/YOUR UP NEXT/
    Considering the pushback, should be YUGE.
