      Sadly.. the more we push the #resisters to the front, and do not encourage and work with the more moderate dems, the better for the country in the long run..

      I hope the RNC has a good idea on who they run in the districts they lost in ’18. Pro mainstreet, pro-American candidates and not the old unexciting “conservatives”.
      We don’t need outspoken immigration hardliners screaming for the wall in many of these districts either(We need them in deep red districts occupied by globalist R’s!). Many suburban battleground districts never had the big problems the rest of America had and thus they often didn’t understand the anger that fueled the Trump election. That’s why many R’s lost. No interest from pro-American moderates nor from all out Trump MAGA enthusiasts in the wider areas of these suburbia districts.
      The way to unite is to focus on what Brindis(D) said and add a huge portion of Americanism to it.

          Your are right but there are still a lot of differences and nuances. Not all of them will vote full on socialist like “the squad”.

          The democrat party had a good plan in 2018 and selected lots of candidates that had no relation to Pelosi and the #resistance.
          While we were labeling them all as socialist crazy ANTIFA thugs, moderate voters(!) in the districts were not able to marry the new D candidates with that image.

          Them not being able to do what they promised their voters surely will fall back on them but we shouldn’t underestimate their ability to draw votes from people who did not hurt before Trump was elected and still don’t get why we are/were so angry and want walls and punish China.
          In the end we need these voters and districts to actually put Trump’s agenda into laws that last beyond his presidency. These voters are not radical socialists and up for the taking with the right message.
          I saw not many discussions on why we lost the midterms beyond the “mueller witchhunt” which wasn’t the only reason!

            Republicans lost:
            1. Crappy candidates and messages, gave Republicans zero reason to turn out.
            2. “The Party Leadership” still is not President Trump’s party >50%, again gave zero reason locally to turn out, because President doing well even with Uni-Party in control.
            3. Not a single Republican pointed to the voting and speaking records of the other “moderates” already elected as proof of “there are no moderates”.
            4. Key popular candidates, even though being uni-party, dropped out.
            5. Republicans attacking the President and each other, again sucking away energy for folks to get out to vote.
            6. Feckless and lazy RNC that did not unify nor manage its candidates as well as put crap on the ballot under the title Repubican.

            Would I like to see a return to the days of compromise, with win some loose some as well as each branch doing its allocated duties? Yes I would because that is the government our constitution describes. I hope there is a way to return to that time, we’ll see.

      The democrats CANNOT be allowed to run the Rahm Emanuel strategy that they ran in 2008 and 2018. They run as moderates, get elected, and vote with the progressives. They ALLOW Jerry Nadler. They ALLOW The Squad. Voters who are lied to have no recourse once these phony moderates get elected. The damage is done. REMEMBER THE OCARE VOTE? We were helpless. Want to feel that way again with wide open borders, amnesty, no guns and higher taxes?

    This may seem out of place to suggest but given the way the democrat party is evolving I started rereading “Order of the Death’s Head – Story of Hitler’s SS” by Heinz Hohne (1967/1986). This is not a war story but actual documentation covering the foundation as well as evolution of the SS and Nazis movement, which was fascist-socialist down to its very roots. Hitler and Himmler suborned the more conservative elements of German society to gain money and the veneer of legitimacy. It is utterly astounding the parallels between the words in this book and what we are seeing unfold within the new cult of the “democrat party”. Not just actions, plans and visions but the actual terminology used by the democrat party today leapt off the pages of this book, to include the growing cycles of anti-Semitism and use of minorities as the “Slavic” slaves in their plans.

    The thing that is most interesting the SS evolved into a major economic entity that is not often discussed. Consider that the US financial elite is the Movement (Party), while various elements if the democrat party play the roles of the SS and SA. The financial elites chose the democrat party because they contain the most gullible and reactionary elements of the population, for use as their “street thugs”.

      What Payne says at the end is the big social issue in America and the biggest opportunity for Trump and R’s to add votes. The wealth inequality is real and democrat policies are holding people back.
      Socialists, Bernie and Warren, argue that the inequality has to be leveled by taking away wealth from the poor and launder it through the gov.

      I think it’s easy to re-frame that towards enabling everyone to live the American Dream..
      “Free markets, low taxes, easy business entry and pro-American trade will enable YOU to live the American Dream too, vote Trump and Republican!”

      The idea of opportunity zones is good and circumvents some of the D policies but it’s not enough. Nor is it to have lots of jobs available if your money is taken away by taxes and unreasonable living costs.. That whole topic is real and we shouldn’t leave it to democrats to exploit.. That’s the only issue where I don’t like the KAG slogan cause America isn’t yet great for everyone(thanks to D’s)

    As Pelosi battles the more extreme leftists in the democrat caucus of the House, consider, she did not include the Rules Committee as being subject to the New House Operating Rules she put in place. That committee is likely staffed with Pelosi sycophant supporters.

        She battling to retain control and power, short and simple. The younger members of the party feel ready to displace her and move the party in their direction and eschew the middle road used by the old guard to stay in office. The more troubling aspect of the democrat new guard is that they feel pretty safe to be as outrageous as they desire to be because the under 40 crowd in the US could care less as long as they are left alone and nothing physically impacts them or their wallets. Keeping full control of the Rules of Committee may be her only tenuous failsafe at this point.

        Nancy P. is playing a dangerous political game by having a foot in both camps. I have no doubt she supports impeachment to put her party in power, yet she knows the character or lack therein of the beast seeking impeachment, That beast could wake up the apathetic under 40’s to the danger the “new” democrat party actually presents.

        Chuckie S. on the other hand can afford to sit back and snipe away, in the “traditional republican manner”. He also does not have to contend with full blooded leftists as the senate tends to be a bit more “conservative” in terms of personal character.

Their poop also plays a big role in marking their territory as each RINO’s poop has a unique smell, and male RINOs utilize it to keep others off their area. They can make between 20 to 30 piles to make sure that other RINOs know to stay away.”

    IF and WHEN we once again have the executive and both houses of CONgress, we need to work hard to raise the voting age BACK to 21. I’d actually like it even higher, but…

    The excuse used to lower it was “Well, 18 year olds can fight and die in the military, but not vote?” That was when there was a DRAFT. That is no longer the case. All military members are VOLUNTEERS.

    • As much as I hate to admit it, I am against this, unless we simply raise the age of adulthood to 21. Even without the draft, I don’t believe it is fair that we happily accept 18 year olds to volunteer for service, knowing they are risking their lives and do so at this age because they are the most physically fit and are not fully developed mentally and don’t have the fear factor those in their mid to late 20s have yet. But whatever the case, I don’t care for the differences in age of adulthood, i.e. expected to take on the responsibilities of being an “adult” at 18 in terms of being tried as an adult, no longer a dependent upon their parents, able to enter into contracts, etc…yet they can’t smoke, drink, etc…until 21. Make it 21 across the board, or make it 18.

        21 across the board, fine by me, 24 would be even better, but the the entire “they can’t vote to not be sent to war so let them vote” is a pure BS argument in the first place because:

        1. What effect does a minority of votes have on that topic anyway. None.
        2. Many people in the military are not going to WANT go to war no matter what and there are many things they might not be told about why going to war was a good or necessary idea.
        3. They -CHOSE- to join the military.

        The let them vote idea is nearly as stupid as allowing UNIONS in the military which, believe it or not, was briefly an issue a long time ago.

            Judith, you left out a major, necessary contributing part of the fabriccated coup attempt. The secret Star Chamber FISA Court surely knew that it was authorizing (multiple times) use of the Federal Government spy capability, to spy on Presidential Candidate, then President Trump. They are supposed to be the Constitutionally-protective,independent third Branch which protects the unrepresented defendants. They knew this was not only Constitutionally “questionable”, but also phony. Especially as they kept extending the secret spying. Quite disgusting. They thought they would never be caught. So far they have kept the Warrant info secret, but hopefully that will change.

            The FISC is actually probably at least as culpable, or even more culpable, than many of the (other) coup participants. Because it is the Constitutional, and Congressionally-assigned responsibility of the FISC to protect the Due Process and Probable Cause rights of citizens. The FISC already was forced by ?Admiral Rogers to admit 85% of spying under its watch was illegal. They never held hearings to cross examine the “evidence” in the fraudulent FISA Warrants, They never disciplined the lawyers who filed the fraudulent FISA Warrants. They totally failed to meet their basis responsibility.

            Secrecy corrupts, and absolute secrecy corrupts absolutely. Power needs to be dispersed and be subject to independent review and 3-branch-of-goverment knowlwdge. There needs to be an independent Advocate General Office (outside DunJ – Department of UnJustice) to review and interrogate FBI/DunJ witnesses and false evidence to make a record. With authority to appeal to the Supreme Court and report to Congress and the President.

            Without willing FISC cooperation, the entire coup attempt would not have happened. It is a mistake to permit the FISC to skate away from its misdeeds in secrecy. The absolute systemic failure and unreliability of the self-contained secret FISC operation needs to be publicized and fixed.

      The financial reality of the MEDICARE FOR ALL PLANS is that everybody will pay a graduated tax until they die, pay higher means tested premiums and be paying for dead beats, illegal immigrants or those who would have qualified for Medicaid. It does not take a math model or wizard to see this is likely to lead to $1,000+ per month being given to the government by “the middle class”, both retirees and those still working.

      For a retiree on Social Security, this comes out of your check before its mailed. Note to retirees, the average value of a social security check is $1,400 to $1,500. Contrary to the warning on the SSA Website, the Social Security is meant to cover only 40% of retirement expenses, most Americans mistakenly count on it to cover 75-100%.

    Pelosi : No, we’re not wasting time on impeaching Kavanaugh
    https://hotair.com/archives/ed-morrissey/2019/09/18/pelosi-no-not-wasting-time-impeaching-kavanaugh/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

    Excerpt:

    Pelosi’s smart enough to realize that the rhetorical stampede toward impeaching Kavanaugh over the weekend compromised the argument for impeaching Trump. As Durbin warned, Democrats now look like utter political nihilists, not good-government activists, attempting to oust anyone who opposes them regardless of elections or process. They have become a pitchfork and torch mob, not a governing party. The longer that goes on, the tougher it will be for them to hold the ground they gained in 2018 and avoid the same backlash Republicans got in 1998.

      At this point no matter what the Democrats would do they would NOT look like “good-government activists.” Lord knows, impeaching an entirely innocent President Trump is the exact polar opposite of “good” and responsible governance.

      Democrats have poisoned the well with their scorched-earth policy. The most horrifying, or entertaining, part is that they don’t see the self-harmful nature of their actions. Rendering themselves the party of pure destruction with nothing constructive to offer will play poorly with swing voters they need to court.

      But WTH, it’s their party and they’ll do what they want to….

    Fed cuts interest rates one-quarter point

    https://www.marketwatch.com/story/fed-decision-and-jerome-powell-press-conference—live-blog-and-video-2019-09-18?mod=mw_theo_homepage

    The Federal Reserve on Wednesday trimmed its benchmark interest rate to 1.75% to 2%, with a sizable minority projecting one more rate reduction in 2019. The central bank has cut rates twice in the past two months as an insurance policy against damage from the U.S. trade war with China. The vote was 7-3. St. Louis Fed President James Bullard preferred a half-point cut. Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren and Kansas City Fed President Esther George dissented for the second meeting in a row, preferring no rate cut. Looking ahead, 10 senior Fed officials projected no more rate cuts this year, but seven viewed one more reduction as likely. Meanwhile, the Fed left its forecast for the economy little changed over the next several years. Notably, the central bank projected no rate cuts in 2020 and just one in both 2021 and 2022.

      Whether they have jobs or not, the vast majority of black people will still vote D; they’ve been radicalized by demonrats, into hating everything “white”, esp. white men.

      Unfortunate, but nonetheless true; they’re protected by AA policies in the private sector and the ones working for the government, have 100% job security.

      It’s all about hatred, it trumps everything; even so, a 2 or 3% defection from the rat plantation is welcome.

      At the time nobody vetted all of the OSS operations, to weed out or at least ID potential problems. Due to war time needs, the OSS helped establish allot of the future communist leaders across Asia with money, arms, training and education. This was especially true n the Pacific Theatre.

      It also established some very deep roots for communist access and continuous entry into the CIA.

      They did allot of good work to fight WWII but some naïve folks allowed some dangerous interlopers to survive after the war. Not so sure “Wild” Bill would recognize parts of today’s CIA.

    Judicial Watch is hot on the trail of a potentially explosive revelation: that an agent who had previously worked for the FBI and CIA as an informant — recruited by Andrew Weissmann in 1998! — actively tried to set up a business deal between the Trump Organization and Russian interests, in order to implicate Trump with “collusion.” – https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/09/did_fbi_and_cia_have_an_agent_provocateur_who_tried_to_entrap_the_trump_organization_in_a_russia_deal.html

    • I’m quite sure that the Trump organization saw through this little gambit instantly. You don’t get to be a billionaire in the international real-estate business by using your brain to hold up your hat. Everyone is trying to sell you “the deal of the century.”

      And, I daresay that both the Russian businessmen and the Russian government (if they were ever actually contacted by anyone, which I consider to be profoundly unlikely) would also have no difficulty reading it the same way.

      Y’know, it seems to me that no one ever actually stopped to look at this preposterous tale from even a slightly-skeptical perspective: “why in the hell would ‘the Russians’ want to get involved in our national elections, which are most clearly ‘our business?'” Why would their government(!) be in the “dirty e-mails” business? (And for that matter, why was the DNC writing(!!) this “dirt” about their own candidate?) No, you just have to switch your mind off … and expect others to do the same. (They won’t, of course. But I sometimes wonder how many of them are “ROTFLMAO …”)
