    It would be so easy to beat the left at their own game, by co-opting their lame movements and terminology. For example:

    Social Justice – Yes! I want it! All races, religions, and sexes treated the same – no special dispensation for special classes, or taxpayer monies funneled their way. Laws should be applied equally, as written, to everyone. Social media should be fair to all, instead of discriminating against Conservatives.

    Comprehensive Immigration Reform – Yes! We must address all aspects the problem. Stop the illegal invaders and criminal takers. Stop the welfare and remittances. Stop the anchor baby breeding. Start sending them back, and build a wall so they can’t return. Punish lawbreakers and those who aid and abet them, including municipalities and states. Ensure legal immigrants first pass health screenings, background checks, can support themselves/family, speak basic English, and pass a Constitution exam.

    It’s simple. When they promote their carefully concocted and harmless-sounding terms, just agree with them. Then, when they give you the platform to speak, you simply state what it means to you. They never see it coming.

    It drives them insane. Splody heads as they realize their efforts to politicize the English language have failed. They make complete idiots of themselves trying to “correct” you, and from that point on they are wary of using their own buzzwords. They leave humiliated and deflated.

    We saw The Donald do this with their term “fake news.” He owns it now (and became POTUS)! Never. Let. Them. Win.

      I like the way you think. However, your version of “social justice” sounds a lot like plain old justice, which is the only kind of justice there should ever be. Anytime there is a qualifier put in front, it is injustice that is being promoted.

      EXCELLENT!

      Also never ever let them set up a STRAWMAN.

      Two favorites are:
      LEFT – 2nd Amendment is about hunting and self-defense.
      Constitution – 2nd Amendment is about DEFENDING our God given Rights from a Tyrant.

      ‘Rich’ wage earners should pay more taxes:
      TRUTH the Upper middle class WAGE EARNER pays the highest taxes. The rich WHO DO NOT EARN WAGES pay far less.

      EXAMPLE From: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_TYZ6VRNNg
      Warran Buffet pays a 20% CAPITAL GAINS TAX
      While his secretary pays a 35% INCOME TAX on WAGES.

      By using loop holes where Tax free foundations ‘own’ the corporation stock, the foundations can then ‘own’ the airplanes, villas, condos, limos… the wealthy use thereby reducing the capital gains tax to as low as 15%
      >>>>>>

      The enemy of Marxism (Neo-feudalism) is NOT the Aristocracy/elite but the MIDDLE CLASS! aka ‘the bourgeoisie.’ So please do not let them get away with this sleight of hand. Hardly any of the useful idiots realize this distinction in taxes between a highly paid wage earner and the Filthy Rich.

      “The bourgeoisie, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. It has pitilessly torn asunder the motley feudal ties that bound man to his ‘natural superiors,’ ― Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto

      When people tell me they want social justice I wholeheartedly agree with , “yes, yes – let’s end this two-tier, or 3 -tier justice system and finally put Hillary, comey, strozk, etc. behind bars. We should honor our pledge of allegiance which states at the end, “with liberty and jiustice for ALL – and ALL includes Hillary!”

      All their ideas fall under there own weight. Long story made short, there is no truth in them (lies). Most rational individuals learned from truth forward, able to discern the basic idea of truth must be in place or any long term success will fail. Transgender? The basic idea starts as a lie, we all know this. To conclude with no foundation to begin with is temporary at best.

      All their hay and stubble will soon burn up.

    It is interesting that no one seems amped that the left used McCain to legitimatize the dossier in the beginning. Is the because the fooled him, by playing on his hatred for Trump? Or was it because he was one of them – or both? Regardless, that knot needs to get tied around the neck of the never trumpers and show they were co-conspirators in the insurance policy.

      IMO, McCain never was the “conservative” he touted himself to be. He’d already betrayed our side a number of times over the years, including throwing the election (if not actively, then passively) in 2008. His mistreatment of Sarah Palin revealed then, though we didn’t know it until Donald Trump came along, the depth and breath of the UnipartySwamp.

      His hatred toward POTUS was simply the final affront (in McCain’s warped mind) to all that he had desired but never came to pass.

        He displayed disrespect for Sarah Palin even years later and blamed her for his defeat. Personally I think he would have fared far worse without Sarah Palin.
        The same people disdain Palin as disdain Trump. She is a “commoner”- how dare she “rise above her station”.

          Absolutely. Sarah Palin being on the ticket kept McCain from being swamped in his loss. Many voted GOP only because she was on the ticket.

          He proved those people right, being the rotted soul he was.

      McCain isn’t that gullible. He is fully aware of what he did. This is why he went into hiding afterwards. If McCain was legitimately duped he would have pointed some fingers.

  9. In 2019 Mueller will delay his report until he can best negatively influence the 2020 elections. He has nothing on PDJT, but will continue to harass and find process crimes on as many as he can of the Trump family, friends and campaign members. In order to prevent Presidential intervention, he will off-load every potential crime he can find against the Trumps and Trump supporters to State level courts with anti-Trump AGs. The House will impeach and I truly believe the President only has a 50/50 chance of surviving a trial in the Senate. Republicans are concerned with self-preservation only.

    Mueller, if not checked, will destroy the Trump presidency. And in doing so, every single corrupt FBI/DOJ player will WALK FREE. Only if there is someone with a set of brass b—s or hair on their a– in the DOJ will the perps by held accountable. I still believe Rosenstein controls a lot within the DOJ and Wray is as useless as…..well, I’ll keep it clean. I pray I am wrong. I do believe in MAGA and KAG, I’m just tired, discouraged and sick to my stomach over this mess.

      I suppose we could take bets, if we were betting people. I’m going to go with the belief that POTUS is well aware of the point at which Mueller should be told to move on. I also believe that either the current AG or the confirmed on will do what POTUS wants done – or they’ll be gone.

        G3 & Paul: I believe 2019 has to become the turning point for President Trump. The Uniparty will make one last desperate push to impeach President Trump in 2019. How President Trump survives this will determine whether he can go on the offense.

        One scenero few have thought of is if the Uniparty does impeach President Trump whether President Trump will accept this and voluntarily step down. Remember the hoopla just before the 2016 election that candidate Trump might not accept the outcome if he lost?

        What if he refuses to step down? Then what? The military steps in? I would think this is President Trump’s best scenario and the deep state’s worst scenario! Trump is after all the military’s Commander in Chief! Then military tribunals?

            Actually this scenario is not as crazy as you think! First we know that President Trump has obeyed all court decisions against him. He has been a sticker for following the US Constitution.

            Can you say the same for the Uniparty? No they have proven to the American people over and over again that there are two sets of laws in the US!

            They are above the law while average Americans must obey all their laws!

  12. Please, may we all rally around our President Donald J. Trump, for our America, as there are so many who are trying so very hard to destroy our great country. I pray we all aren’t just talking the talk but that we will walk every step with our VSGDJT. I truly believe this is our greatest opportunity to make a stand and help do something great and lasting for our children, our grandchildren, for our fellow man….
    Please God, dont let us continue to be complacent, give us strength and wisdom to help bring great, good and lasting change. Be with our President, Lord, lead guide and direct his every move.

      Just a comment . . . not meant as criticism:

      I don’t believe that God is greatly concerned about anyone’s complacency concerning political change. I believe He is much more concerned with whether or not we are giving our best to “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” and to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” This is where we should focus our greatest efforts.

      That being said, I also realize that Nehemiah didn’t pray to God for God to rebuild Jerusalem, he prayed that God would give him favor with respect to Nehemiah’s request to Artaxerxes that Nehemiah would be given permission to return to Jerusalem and rebuild it. He wasn’t complacent at all with respect to the condition of Jerusalem and was prepared fully to roll up his sleeves and get to work.

      So, while I believe that God is less concerned with our support for PTrump, I also believe that God will answer earnest prayer that supports His will in such a way that it will build up and strengthen the faith of the one who is praying.

      I hope this comment doesn’t appear too disjointed.

        I agree that as Christians, our focus should not be politics.

        But when one party wants to kill babies and euthanize people on demand, political opposition becomes moral opposition.

        The left decided to combine morality and politics to enact their cultural revolution. They picked this fight, it is up to good men and women to finish it.

    Mitt Romney approaches Washington DC and opens fire on President Trump.

    https://www.stamfordadvocate.com/opinion/article/How-a-president-shapes-the-public-character-13502232.php

    To me, he remains the same loser he was in his run for the presidency. During that campaign Obama hit him with low blows and haymakers and he, obligingly, played the part of an unresponsive pinata. He never figured out he needed to hit back.

    In a humiliating loss, the country rejected his ideas and his persona. You would think he would have learned from that experience. Didn’t happen. In this OPED he continues to stand on the same soap box, speaks in same lofty terms and invokes all the familiar inside the beltway, Republican, political platitudes. There is no sign of humility in the man.

    So, it’s going to be Romney V Trump. This will be fun to watch.
