    POTUS tweets from the last few hours.

    What’s great about POTUS, among other things, is he never sits back and lets the narrative be dictated to him. He sets the narrative, instead. Media wants to talk Ivanka emails, Saudi Arabia and “Trump politicizes DOJ” nonsense, but POTUS just types out a few keystrokes and alters the conversation completely.

      Dreaming. I think Sheriff Clark REALLY scared demonrats, media, really alk who are ‘anti-Trump’.

      I suspect they used deep state tactics to target him, as they realise how vulnerable they are, to ‘losing’ significant amount of ‘black vote’, over time.
      Remember how he was slated for position, and then not?

          Maybe you did hear wrong … and maybe you didn’t.

          The last time I saw West was quite a while ago, and his tone was that he needed to give DJT a stern lesson in discipline. I haven’t see hide nor hair of him for ages so I don’t know if he’s changed. —

          many people who found the president distasteful in the past now love him. During the primaries I used to argue, mostly with Cruz supporters, who seemed to hate the then contender, but they started supporting him after he won the primary, and now they love President Trump!

      Mr. Shapiro’s basic fault is he can’t recognize that you can’t railroad until the time is ripe to do so ; i.e. sometimes its better to wait – or restrict per Carlson’s premise – until economic and social pressure forces a technological change upon a more adaptive society .

      Ben Shapiro is a smart guy who has made the fatal error of thinking he’s really super duper smart — thus he is a fool.
      Plus, he has to please his handlers — thus, he can never be his own man and has to therefore parrot the lines given to him. (yet another way Ben Shapiro is a fool).

    • Great perspective from Tucker Carlson.

      Where you have pure capitalism the end results are the exactly same as where you have pure socialism. In either form, the citizens become slaves and lose their freedoms and wealth to monopolistic corporations.

      The only difference is that in one you are a slave to the private shareholders of the corporations, and in the other you are a slave to the government shareholders of the corporations. Life would be horrible under either system.

      I do wish that the DOJ would do a better job of breaking up the existing monopolies, but they cannot even do the simplest of tasks right now. They are literally the “Enemy of the People” as currently constituted.

      … and Ben Shapiro is a great example of compartmentalized intelligence. Smart in some areas, and really dumb in others. He thinks that he is smart in all areas, but instead suffers from an outstanding case of Dunning-Kruger syndrome.

        I think the reverse racism against white people will be a watershed event. Nothing could be more clearly evil to a normal person.

        In fact, I’ve never seen people more obviously in need of being dragged into an insane asylum than the crazy brainwashed bots in this video – screaming hate at other white people for being white while they are clearly white themselves. Any normal person viewing this has to think “OMG, dude – seek professional help immediately!”

          Really, Gunny? I actually though it was Keane in that segment who seemed to be whitewashing the PR general who had announced troops were going home for Christmas, while Lou kept pointing out that such an announcement was contrary to PDJT’s principle of NOT announcing troop movements in advance.

          Keane got a bit hot and then dissolved into a quick spate of rapid-fire bureaucratese.

          The segment really stuck out to me – I was thinking “Hmm, maybe Lou is realizing his frequent guest is way off base here.”

          I would be interested to hear what your takeaway was. I still see Lou as the most solid PDJT supporter anywhere on Fox. Oh, except maybe for Maria B.

Lou was defending the president and saying the spokesman and three star were speaking out of turn. gen keane did get a little bit aggravated with Lou abt, Him pushing after the General had agreed already.

    Election fraud scheme on L.A.’s skid row got homeless to sign fake names for cigarettes and cash, D.A. says

    Using cash and cigarettes as lures, the defendants approached homeless people on skid row and asked them to forge signatures on state ballot measure petitions and voter registration forms, the district attorney’s office said.
    “They paid individuals to sign the names,” Officer Deon Joseph, the senior lead officer on skid row, told The Times in September. “That’s an assault on our democracy.”

          From my election notes:
          The New American: Rand Paul to Obama: “Prioritize” Passage of Trans-Pacific Partnership

          …Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a man whose personal popularity and political fortunes have increased in direct proportion to his spreading of his libertarian-leaning ideals, has now publicly embraced the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), an unprecedented sovereignty surrender masquerading as a multi-national trade pact…..

          Los Angles Times: Rand Paul drops the mic on Donald Trump over China’s participation in trade deal

          Boom.

          That was the implied sound effect Tuesday night as Sen. Rand Paul casually reminded Donald Trump about China’s lack of participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the sweeping trade deal among the U.S. and 11 other countries. Trump had been on a tear, railing about how the deal was “a disaster” and saying China was the “No. 1 abuser” of the U.S….
          Paul was the only person who seemed to know the basics of the trade deal, which has returned to the headlines in recent days as the full text of the complex deal was released.

          Rand Paul, IF he had actually read that darn treaty should have know it is very easy to ADD another country and the ‘No China” gambit was the exact same chess move Clinton played to get the World Trade Organization treaty ratified. Then Clinton worked his rump off to get China added a few years later.

          Is Rand really that dumb? Or is he FOR CHINA

          China trade improves economy AND makes fight less likely
          When I was about ten years old, like many conservative middle-class families, our inclination was to resist anything to do with Red China. In that black and white world, you were either for us or against us. Trade with China was thought to be trade with the enemy. A funny thing happened, though, along the way. Many conservatives came to understand a larger truth. As trade began to blossom with China, many conservatives, myself included, came to admit that trade improves our economic well-being AND makes us less likely to fight. The success of trade with China made many conservatives rethink their view of the world. — Rand Paul

          Background on China’s HATE for the USA: Lessons of history: China’s century of humiliation

          China Picks at the Scab to Keep the Wound Fresh
          A passage from an essay by the Australian defense analyst Paul Monk is very telling on the subject of what President Xi intends for Asia’s near future:

          In any case, Xi Jinping, despite his genial smile, good English, and familiarity with the United States, is no reforming liberal. Shortly after assuming the presidency, he took all the members of his politburo with him to the bizarre museum the Party has built in Tiananmen Square – the museum of national humiliation and revival. He pointed out to them the exhibits showing the arrival of the Jesuits via Macao in the sixteenth century and how this had been the beginning of the infiltration and humiliation of China by the West. He pointed out the exhibits showing the Japanese invasions of China and making the unfounded assertion that the Japanese were defeated by the Communist Party with a little help from “good” Nationalist generals. The Americans, he said, then became the enemy. “Against this external enemy,” he told China’s inner group of top leaders, “we must stick together.”

    Reformers hope Trump may prove to be an external catalyst for change. If the U.S. president can move the Chinese leadership by wielding the blunt instrument of higher tariffs, the thinking goes, it might spur market openings that party officials would otherwise prefer to avoid. That in turn could help private companies to compete more effectively, especially with state-owned enterprises.
