        “Ma’am is high respect”

        Yes. It’s actually a contraction of Madame or Madam

        Teacher could better use her time teaching her students about contractions and other grammatical constructs. Lord knows they need it, judging from some examples of their writing we see these days.

    Via The Hill:

    The majority of U.S. voters believe that former CIA Director John Brennan and former FBI Director James Comey should have their security clearances revoked, according to the Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill.

    The survey showed 59 percent of registered voters felt Brennan should have lost his security clearance, while 64 percent said Comey and others at the FBI who were fired or demoted over their actions should lose their clearance.

    Overall, 60 percent of registered voters said they believed that former national security officials who become consultants and TV news contributors should give up their national security clearances.

    “An overwhelming majority of the public thinks that former officials should lose their security clearance, and believe that former officials like Brennan and Coney should no longer have any clearance,” said Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll co-director Mark Penn.

    “There would definitely be support for a wholesale policy revoking their clearances,” he added.

    If Molly was my daughter I could not respond in the way her father responded:

    “The Hispanic community are Iowans. They have the same values as Iowans,” he said. “As far as I’m concerned, they’re Iowans with better food.”

    “Today, we need to turn the page. We’re at the end of a long ordeal,” he said. “But we need to turn toward life — Mollie’s life — because Mollie is nobody’s victim. Mollie is my hero.”

      The sad thing is these republicans farmers who employ the invaders are just as guilty. There is no way they do not know the game these invaders are playing, no way, and yet they call themselves republicans. They should be turning them in to authorities! They too are traitors to our country! Every American farmers or businessman that hires an invader without a thorough background check is also a criminal. No excuses period.
      Past that there seems to be no bounds to the stupidity of ppl afflicted with these deranged points of view. This country is barely hanging on when you consider the bald faced lies broadcast every day 24/7 and there is no recourse.
      I am for free speech, but it ought to at least be truthful. Remember the constitution was written for a moral population. Now it is being used against the moral for immoral purposes and our AG is sitting on his hands, covering his eyes, and plugging his ears.

    http://thehill.com/homenews/house/403839-ocasio-cortez-lists-investigations-democrats-should-tackle-if-they-win-back

    Her district is a slam-dunk, but she has taken on the role of our nation-wide celebrity “friendly face” of socialism. And wouldn’t you know, this is the same day Pocahontas pushed her legislation to stuff govt bureaucrats onto the board of any company larger than $1B. In other words, in her desperation to out-flank the socialist leftie, EW leapfrogged way past AOC with a commie-grade panic button. (Just last week EW was denying being a socialist and declared that she was “pro capitalism”.) Interestingly, yesterday David Hogg tweeted that “old people” need to get off the political stage.

    AOC can’t be returned to the factory for missing civics, economics, and history chips in time for the election, so she will need “special” stage management and a script. No problem, Dems have been through this before with Hitlery! But AOC’s intended audience won’t even notice – they’re also from Title IX’s lost generation. People thought the Occupy Wall Street kids would just grow up – they can’t grow up, they didn’t have the training or education for it. Who knew that these kids would both resent and internalize the fed govt bank “bailout” lesson?

      People need to understand that original Occupy founders, were anti globalist, anti WTO, anti free trade types. 3 times they ran out the SJW crowd. Than the FBI, under the direction of Obama, started destroying the lives of the original founders. This let the SJW crowd take over several organizations.

      Many of the Original Occupy leaders are die hard Trump voters. Just a FYI for those of you who dont know the full scope of that movement. I know some of these people, their lives were destroyed by Obama.

    Ten Reasons Not to Mourn John McCain

    1. On July 29, 1967, the spoiled brat McCain pulled a prank and wet-started his jet while aboard the USS Forrestal. His mother lovingly called him a ‘scamp’ and it was well-known he was a practical joker and rule breaker. He finished near rock bottom in a class of over 800 at Annapolis because he tried to break every rule in the book there while also making terrible grades. Such a prank befits his character. The huge flame created touched off a bomb on the plane behind him which led to more bombs going off from other parked planes, which then led to the deaths of 134 sailors. McCain did nothing to help during the fire. He was whisked off the carrier and protected because his father and grandfather were Navy admirals. The Deep State Swamp media has since tried to cover this up. They protect their own.

        2. He was not a hero. Getting shot down and captured may make him a victim, but not a hero. He probably didn’t pay attention during a training class, and so he didn’t pull in his arms when he ejected over North Vietnam–and that’s why they were broken. His captors knew he was the progeny of four-star admirals and if anything gave him special treatment. McCain begged for medical treatment and sang like a bird at the ‘Hanoi Hilton’ to get it. He gave up vital intelligence that led to the deaths of more aviators.
        3. Upon his return to America he immediately stabbed his wife in the back. She was badly injured in a car accident and he couldn’t be bothered to help her. Instead, he quickly dumped her and married a wealthy heiress who could fund his political career. People get divorced all the time, but the manner in which he proceeded only underscores his cold-hearted selfishness.
        4. He’s painted as a happy and brave ‘Maverick’ and strong ‘Independent’ by the Deep State media. Wrong. He was a jackass of major proportions. The ‘Warrior’ of the Senate was owned by the Deep State and George Soros in particular. McCain became a shill for open borders who also supported globalism and carbon taxes to fight ‘climate change.’ At the same time, he was the worst enemy of military veterans, whom he left mistreated and in the lurch. Now there’s a bill in Congress meant to provide aid for vets and they want to name it after their ‘hero,’ McCain. Disgusting.

          5. He supported Bush in the Iraq war, even though the entry into that quagmire was based on lies. McCain claimed we would stay there 100 years if necessary. Such stubbornness and war mongering combined with his flash-temper only highlight the fact that he should have been nowhere near the nuke button. McCain was a reckless ‘hot head.’
          6. He was a spoiled and entitled brat who was repeatedly backed and bailed out at every turn by his pappy and grandpappy. He should never have been admitted into Annapolis in the first place. He should have been kicked out of Annapolis for his outrageous and rebellious behavior. He crashed a total of five military aircraft. He loved partying more than flying. He should have been kicked out of the Navy for crashing several jets during his daredevil clowning. He should have been nowhere near the Senate. The NeoCons rigged the primaries for McCain who contemptuously laughed at Ron Paul during the debates. He should have been nowhere near the Republican nomination, but the Deep State wanted McCain, the reckless ‘hot head’ to lose to Obama. He chose Sarah Palin as his running mate and years later blamed her for his loss. The hot head backstabber never took responsibility for his actions.

            7. He displayed great contempt for his constituents while showing his arrogance and hatred for America by never bothering to resign from the Senate when he knew he had terminal brain cancer. He wanted to go to the grave with his power, thus depriving Arizona from representation.
            8. He made sure trade restrictions were softened with Vietnam and hailed as a forgiving man of peace. Wrong! He did it so he could get his Budweiser distributorship there. He was first in line to make money from such legislation. The lust for money and power ruled rule-breaker McCain.
            9. He supported ISIS terrorists and wanted us to start another war in Syria, which might have lead to World War III. McCain was not a ‘maverick.’ He was an establishment war-mongering stooge and enabler for the Deep State.
            10. He leaked Hillary’s paid-for pack of lies, the Steele Dossier, to James Comey, in an attempt to bring down President Trump. This was illegal, but hey—he’s John McCain! Instead of showing remorse he said, “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell!” A faux conservative, he voted against his own party and President Trump when he could—including his vote to keep ObamaCare. The lying backstabber McCain became much loved and he’s now being profusely praised by the Deep State Swamp and its propaganda media. That only proves what a scumbag he truly was.

I wonder if the Clinton’s sent him in to kind of blow things up. Not out of the goodness of their cold dark hearts but perhaps they see their liability in the whole mess that they created. CYA as it’s called. Not exactly sure how it all fits together but it’s worth considering that the Mueller report could be at least partially damning of the Clintons and they want to muddy the water.

    FTA – South Africa has withdrawn its white farmland redistribution bill – six days after Donald Trump warned he was closely studying the situation.

    The ruling African National Congress (ANC) said the bill passed by parliament in 2016 enabling the state to make compulsory purchases of land to redress racial disparities in land ownership needed further consideration.

    It comes after Trump criticised the country’s land reform plans in a tweet that touched on the overwhelmingly white ownership of farmland in South Africa – one of the most sensitive issues in the country’s post-apartheid history.
