      Thank you, very much, Tparty for posting this very informative, interesting video. Listened to it twice! And will probably listen again!


  1. Peoria Jones says:

    That Ben Shapiro has gall. Today, he mocked the media for their coverage of the Buzzkill fan-fiction story. When it broke, however, he was lathering himself with his own spittle trying to rapidly get through they myriad horrors that could result if our not-as-virtuous-as-him POTUS did it – which he seemed quite open to believing. He was quite excited.

    What an obnoxious, hypocritical, sanctimonious little Never-Trumping waste of time. Ben Shapiro seems to fancy himself a philosopher of sorts – perhaps a guru for millennials. But you’d have to be on Conservative training wheels to get anything of substance from him.

    And the ego! Unlike professional radio hosts who advertise special offers for the listeners, B.S. calls them “fans” – not listeners. I’m no fan. Can’t I still use the special promo code?

    I don’t know why Mark Levin bothers with him. And no, I’m not a regular B.S. listener. But my local radio station just put him on when I get off work and I’m in the habit of automatically turning on the radio. I’ll be writing to my local station about the B.S. Show.

    This is the man who many think, as AG, will rectify all the crimes of the Deep State against DJT and America.

    I have warned about Bill Barr. You can believe he’s a White Hat.

    Here’s his background, unfiltered:

    Barr stonewalled and destroyed the Church Committee investigations into CIA abuses.

    Barr stonewalled and stopped inquiries in the CIA bombing assassination of Chilean opposition leader Orlando Letelier. (which took place in Washington, D.C.)

    Barr joined George H.W. Bush’s legal/intelligence team during Bush’s vice presidency (under President Ronald Reagan) Rose from assistant attorney general to Chief Legal Counsel to attorney general (1991) during the Bush 41 presidency.

    Barr was a key player in the Iran-Contra operation, if not the most important member of the apparatus, simultaneously managing the operation while also “fixing” the legal end, ensuring that all of the operatives could do their jobs without fear of exposure or arrest.

    In his attorney general confirmation, Barr vowed to “attack criminal organizations”, drug smugglers and money launderers. It was all hot air: as AG, Barr would preserve, protect, cover up, and nurture the apparatus that he helped create, and use Justice Department power to escape punishment.

    Barr stonewalled and stopped investigations into all Bush/Clinton and CIA crimes, including BCCI and BNL CIA drug banking, the theft of Inslaw/PROMIS software, and all crimes of state committed by Bush

    There’s much more here:

    And you can find much more all over the Internet if you want his real CV and not the spin and coverup version.

        Because hr has no choice. He has to pick who the republicans will allow to be confirmed. They are swamp and they will only recommend and confirm swamp. Pence, Sessions, Bolton, Mattis, Kavanagh, McMaster, Mulvayney, etc. All swamp. He is one man against the whole Washington save a few like Rand Paul and Jim Jordan. He is doing a pretty good job all things considered. In my opinion.

    • Julian says:

      So what?

      Trump has conducted a thorough search for the Best AG out there to prosecute Trump’s policy of “DRAINING THE SWAMP”.

      Trump has no chance of re-election of he doesn’t Drain the Swamp. Trump knows this.

      There is no one better than Barr out there to destroy his good buddy Swamp Dweller Bob Mueller and destroy his patrons in the Bush Crime Family and also take down the Clinton Cringe Cabal.

      This is why Trump selected Barr and clearly Barr is the best man for the job to do these things!!

      Trust Trump!!

      Use to go there all the time. Had a mobile home that a few of us got together and purchased, then we leased some land and that was our surf shack. Few miles from town. I quit going because the cops were a constant pain in the azz. Mordida.

      Money is fungible. If we build a wall and finance it ourselves, and it saves us more money than we spend to build it, then who bears the cost? Who supports all the illegal immigrants that stay in their home countries instead of getting welfare here?

      Their home countries do. So no, Mexico isn’t paying for the wall…. by themselves, lol. Guatamala, El Salvador, and Huonduras will pay for the wall, too.

      I count three Liberals who are known to the general public, who are still honest, that is, not afflicted with TDS:

      1) Doug Shoen;
      2) Glenn Greenwald; and
      3) Alan Dershowitz.

      Everywhere else, its 1860 all over again…this time its not the North versus the South and its not the enslavement of Blacks.

      Its the rotting cities and illegal aliens versus the Heartland; its the New Wave of Robber Barons in New York and Silicon Valley aligned with the Welfare State and the Federal Plantation….pushing for the enslavement of the Taxpayers in Middle America…the ones who made America the greatest success thus far in the human experiment.

      They want him to “repent”, so they can keep kicking him when he’s down.

      This is the lesson learned by all the SJW’s who “crossed a line” the past couple years.

      They apologize to the Mob for their “mistake” and then the Mob tears them to pieces, again.

      Same sh*t that the Red Chinese did to “confessors”. Only difference is, we don’t have Re-Education Camps they can be sent to yet in this country- unless you include College Campuses, of course.

      I’ve emailed two law firms so far. More people need to do the same.

      Twitter, Google and Facebook aren’t subject to the First Amendment, which is a limitation on the Federal Government’s powers.

      However, as publicly traded companies, they do have a fiduciary duty to their shareholders. That includes management’s actions to actively destroy revenue by censoring otherwise harmless pages because management disagrees with the messages on those pages.

      That’s corporate malfeasance. It’s not just the content producers that lose advertising revenue. Each of those companies takes their cut. So by censoring otherwise harmless pages (and proving their double standard by permitting often times more vulgar left wing pages to remain), they’re violating the fiduciary duty to their shareholders, and should be removed from management.

      This is Twitter admitting that this is bullshit. And even so liberals are in my Facebook feed saying the same things about the kids. But tons of reporters, celebrities, and others have admitted they were wrong and apologized.

    CNN, the dashing White Knight coming to the rescue in this episode, identified the origin of the viral Covington video….
    “Its profile photo was not of a schoolteacher, but of a blogger based in Brazil, CNN Business found. Twitter suspended the account soon after CNN Business asked about it.”


    Give me a f—ing break, CNN


  24. bakocarl says:

    I think the focus on the shutdown steers us away from the issue at hand.

    We should not be asking “How long is PTrump going to keep the government shut down?” We should be asking “When is Congress going to give the President an acceptable budget?”

    We do not have a budget for certain government organizations. Non-essential parts of those organizations are not operating now because they have no money.

    Congress is not proposing a budget to PTrump that adequately funds border security and, as a result, drugs, disease, criminals, gang members, terrorists and others who are not a benefit to our society pour into our country causing death, ruining lives, and creating a huge financial burden.

    The real question with the correct focus is:

    When is congress going to propose a budget to the President that provides adequate protection for U.S. citizens against the dangers of unchecked illegal alien invasion?
