    Heads up. Breitbart is positive most of time, but they employ never Trump reporters. The most odious is Pam Key. She likes to cover has beens like Dan Rather and failed celebrities who like to trash Our VSG President with. their oral vomit. Nothing she covers is newsworthy, but BB keeps her on, mostly on Weekends. I think she’s one of Podesta’s Spirit Dinner regulars.

      Breitbart engages in outrage-click-baiting far too often for me. Other than an occasional fly-by to scan headlines for anything substantive (rare on their site anymore) I stopped visiting.

    I was reading CTH and watching Levin with Devin Nunes. Breaking news, Pelosi wants Trump to speak to impeachment committee. Entrapment scheme and if he refuses to show we will getmore ”what’s he hiding”.

    Nunes closed the show with a statement to the effect of …if Durham is able to put together a criminal case or if not, just show some things that happened….

    Doesn’t sound too promising.

  13. Vapers have you heard this:
    Warning: Washington Post article so there is the usual anti-Trump slant, but good news.

    Trump pulls back from ban on e-cigarette flavors

    President Trump reversed course on a plan to address the youth vaping epidemic because of concerns that job losses and angry vapers might hurt his reelection prospects, officials say.
    By Josh Dawsey and Laurie McGinleyThe Washington Post

    WASHINGTON — Everything seemed ready to go: President Trump’s ban on most e-cigarette flavors had been cleared by federal regulators. Officials were poised to announce that they would order candy, fruit and mint flavors off the market within 30 days – a step the president had promised almost two months earlier to quell a youth vaping epidemic that had ensnared 5 million teenagers.

    One last thing was needed: Trump’s sign-off. But on Nov. 4, the night before a planned morning news conference, the president balked. Briefed on a flight to a Lexington, Kentucky, campaign rally, he refused to sign the one-page “decision memo,” saying he didn’t want to move forward with a ban he had once backed, primarily at his wife’s and daughter’s urging, because he feared it would lead to job losses, said a Trump adviser who spoke on the condition of anonymity to reveal internal deliberations.

    As he had done so many times before, Trump reversed course – this time on a plan to address a major public health problem because of worries that apoplectic vape shop owners and their customers might hurt his reelection prospects, said White House and campaign officials. He also believed job losses tied to the ban would cost him as he sought to trumpet economic growth. It was the latest example of the chaotic way policy is made – and sometimes unmade – in a White House where the ultimate decider often switches gears after making a controversial vow, whether on combating gun violence, pulling troops from Syria or promising to deliver an Obamacare replacement plan.

    Officials said the blowback to Trump’s vow to ban most flavored e-cigarettes had rattled him. In an aggressive social media campaign – #IVapeIVote – advocates claimed the ban would shut down thousands of shops, eliminating jobs and sending vapers back to cigarettes. The president saw protesters at events and read critical articles. His campaign manager, Brad Parscale, privately warned that the ban could hurt Trump in battleground states, said a person who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. Trump was now upset with Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, who had taken the lead in rolling out the plan, said three officials familiar with the discussions.

    “He didn’t know much about the issue and was just doing it for Melania and Ivanka,” said a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share the discussions.

    In recent months, the president’s wife and daughter, who had become increasingly alarmed about youth vaping, were pressing him to take action…..(more at link)

      “Rattled him…”

      You might get rattled by terrorist attacks or maybe nuclear proliferation… But people vaping aggressively are intimidating.


    • GB Bari says:

      A. I don’t believe ANYTHING printed in the Washington Poop.
      B. We will find out the truth when the President talks about it on camera, in a tweet, or one of his advisers or cabinet secretaries appears on camera (IOW, we hear from someone with a face and a name).


    • gda53 says:

      “He didn’t know much about the issue and was just doing it for Melania and Ivanka,”

      The senior administration official also added that both Melania and Ivanka had researched the matter thoroughly before counselling the President, and come to the conclusion that by introducing such a ban, many smokers would revert to cigarettes, causing thousands of deaths per year in the long run. Since this was an unpalatable long term effect, the ban was kiboshed.

      But that was never reported. Of course.

          Try saying that ‘Christianity isn’t in America to be equal with other religions, but to dominate them.’ And ‘The Church vows to get 30 Christians elected to Congress and one on the Supreme Court’ and see how soon it takes the establishment to destroy you.
          No. We do not all have the EQUAL ability to try to get someone elected.


          • coolmamie says:

            Well, if it were my goal to get 30 Christians elected to Congress, the LAST think I would do is announce it publicly.

            And if I wanted another Christian on the Supreme Court, I would just vote for Trump.

    Goodwin: Pelosi has gone full coup coup in Trump impeachment push


    Pressed to describe the “high crimes and misdemeanors” visible exclusively to Donald Trump haters, Dems throw words at walls, hoping something will stick. Quid pro quo, bribery, extortion, abuse of power, obstruction and witness intimidation are all getting a tryout.

    The search for buzzwords proves the entire enterprise is 100% political. If impeachment were justified by facts, the right words would be obvious to the vast majority of Americans.

    Quid pro quo, the battle anthem for six weeks, was ditched after focus groups told Dem pollsters that bribery was easier to understand than Latin. Presto — bribery it is.

    Yet the week’s most important revelation was nothing said to or by the House intelligence panel. Rather, it was the completion of the strange evolution of Nancy Pelosi.

    The speaker, who often sounds and acts as if she is cuckoo, has gone full coup coup.

    I betcha Pe lo si thinks she is impotent errr… well any word will do 😛

      Bribery in politics is when a public official accepts a bribe from a foreign government, not putting conditions like corruption reform on another government for foreign aid.

    Yyyep, these “children” are all angels /s/

    Nearly 80,000 immigrants approved for DACA have arrest records, USCIS report finds

    “The report finds that of the nearly 889,000 applicants for the DACA program, 110,000 had arrest records. Of the more than 765,000 approved for DACA, 79,398 had arrest records. Of that number, 67,861 were arrested before their most recent DACA approval, while 15,903 were arrested after their most recent approval.

    The offenses incurred by DACA requestors who were arrested before their most recent approval include battery (3,421), assault (3,308), burglary, breaking and entering (1,471), rape (62), murder (15) and theft or larceny (7,926). The largest population arrested were suspected of driving-related offenses excluding DUIs (23,305) and immigration-related offenses (12,968.)”

      FAUX is the news that keeps on giving *neverTrumpers* their wedge issues. Wish we weren’t so eager to carry their ball for them.

      DACA is obviously a highly charged political football, so FAUX makes this “news” front and center, heading into the 2020 election, AND while our very stable genius, PDJT, is fighting impeachment. Sounds like a plan. /s

      Not sure what this article is suggesting, but from where I sit, I see that a *subset* of the children trafficked here by the Obama admin and “approved” for his DACA program, has gone rogue. And we know who they are.

      Since these transgressors are isolated from the rest, and their crimes are well documented, then it would follow that they are no longer eligible for the DACA program. President Trump has already prioritized the deportation of aliens with *criminal* records.

    This is what Obama-Clinton had in store for us in 2016.
    This is where the Socialist democrats want to take us in 2020 – to be just like Trudeau’s Canada.
