      I don’t really like this one. Seems like an a negative video as they zoom in on Melania when President Trump “sings” Billy Jean is not my Lover and they zoom in on Barron when President Trump “sings” that the kid is not my son.

      Not a good video, not a with a positive message – although I did like the way that had President Trump dancing and the way they used the cool entrance into the RNC convention

    More thank you’s to the Lyin’ MSM! Another convert, thanks to them. Wonder how NPR’s doin’ these days. Seems to be one of the first “news sources” that former Dems throw under the bus when they leave the plantation.

    Short, sweet and to the point:

      I also kissed NPR goodbye.

      After having donated to them for years (small amounts, like $35 to $60 per year); I began to notice how they kept committing the sin of lying by omission, when reporting about anything to do with President Trump. So starting with the 2016 “renewal” request, (and since then), I no longer donate to them.

      For example, they’d have a long segment on NAFTA, and NEVER ONCE mention the “fatal flaw” (I realize they might not call it by that label, but it’s still there, whatever they would call it). But.. no mention at all.

      Sins of omission. Time after time.

      So, just as I did with the Democrats – I “walked away”. Chances are very slim of me ever going back (just like with the Dems).

      So tired of all the socialist bullshit.

    http://thefederalist.com/2018/07/30/facts-behind-trump-tower-meeting-incriminating-not-trump/ Don Jr. was emailed by a British music promoter, Rob Goldstone, who promised that the Russian “crown prosecutor” had information that would “incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia.” When the meeting took place, in walked two Russian nationals, Rinat Akhmetshin and Natalia Veselnitskaya, who proceeded to talk to Don Jr., Jared Kushner, and others about how Americans could once again adopt Russian children, if only the Magnitsky Act were repealed. Eyes surely rolled, and the meeting was ended. Kushner even messaged his assistant to try to come up with an excuse to leave the meeting early.

    For those who belong to the religious cult of Trump-Russia collusion, this meeting is prima facie evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with Russia to rig the 2016 election. One of the sacraments of this cult is that its adherents wake up every morning and hope that on this day, just maybe, Trump will finally be done away with. CNN is of course central to this practice.

    😀 Somehow, MoveOn mistakenly got my phone# and think I’m somebody by a different name, living in Iowa. They’ve been texting me for my support since Crooked Hellary stole the nomination from Crazy Bernie. I always take the time to immediately reply.

    My favorite replies were “Make America Great Again,” “Lock her up,” and “Hillary for prison.” I know they read my texts, because of the disheartened responses I’ve received from a few snowflakes I’ve melted, ha!

    Tonight, I got a couple more texts and was pleased to be able to simply reply, “WALK AWAY.”

    Thank you, to whoever started that brilliant movement. It warms my cockles to think I might deflate a Progressive’s mojo with those two discouraging words. 🙂

    Really good article about Democrat Central Committee’s carefully strategy for 2018 “Red to Blue” campaign:
    “Both push and pull are at work here. Democratic Party leaders are actively recruiting candidates with a military or intelligence background for competitive seats where there is the best chance of ousting an incumbent Republican or filling a vacancy, frequently clearing the field for a favored “star” recruit.

    Article starts here (yes, it’s from the WSWS site, but Patrick Martin has solid information here):


    This is from the horse’s mouth:

    About the tech stocks comprising and bubbly bloating NASDAQ:

    FAANG was always a fraud.
    July 30, 2018


    FAANG is an acronym for the market’s five most popular and best-performing tech stocks, namely Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Alphabet’s Google.

    Let’s face reality on what these firms are:

    Amazon has a cross-subsidization model that is arguably illegal under 100+ year old antitrust law, and their “growth” has come from that and from screwing American manufacturers and distributors with so-called “third party” sellers, who also scr*w the states on sales taxes.

    Facebook (and Twitter) have a business model that is all about collecting data on you and selling it without fair and full disclosure as to how it’s used or how it hurts you. And it does hurt you, in spades, otherwise these firms would have no advertising flow at all. Never mind their incessant SJW/Left leaning garbage that pisses off half the people on the platform which they also tried like hell to hide but is now out in the open and unlikely to go away. How do you make money when half the country would like to burn your headquarters to the ground and eat your executives for lunch?

    Netflix has a business model that grew on forced cross-subsidization (through the government) and has been burning cash like a bonfire on the beach.

    And Apple has made most of their money through employing slave labor to build expensive phones with which they have a 40% gross margin — without same they’d have a 15% gross margin (a bit better than a commodity manufacturer) and all that magic “extra cash” would dissipate like a fart in a church — and so would THEIR stock price.

    All of them have saturated the market in America, yet are forced to continue their insanity lest their 200:1 P/E collapse down to something more reasonable (like 15:1), which would immediate whack 90% off their stock prices.

    Most of the gains in the S&P 500 and Nazdaq have come from these firms. Collapse all of their stock prices and the margin calls will destroy everything else — note that margin debt is at a record.

    Brandon Strake was out in CA. today speaking at GOP event.

    The vid. is on the FB page, but not on YT yet, so I can’t post it here.

    he’s basically telling Rs to stand up for themselves and quit letting the Dems run their narrative on who Rs are.

    Think it’s great he chose CA., as that’s a place the GOP has “given up” on, foolishly.

      “Think it’s great he chose CA., as that’s a place the GOP has “given up” on, foolishly.”

      Illinois is the same. All but 6 or 7 populous counties voted for President Trump in this state. Downstate Illinois is heavily RED.

      People in Illinois are afraid to state openly about their support for our President for fear of retribution from the psychos on the left. They just need some encouragement and hope……and our President coming to Granite City last week really gave us that. Slowly, the tide is turning.

      I believe in my heart there will NOT be a “blue wave” but instead it will be a “red wave” of epic proportions. It’s what I pray for every night.

  24. The “Kremlin Connection” email to Jeff Sessions’ office started the wiretaps on the Trump Campaign for President.

    The source is a report written by a Congressional committee headed by Adam Schiff (D-CA).  Copies of the “Kremlin Connection” email and the Congressional report are linked.
