  • Bernie Sanders is the "Shadow President"

    12/08/2016 10:39:54 AM PST · by tekrat · 19 replies
    From this article on 2paragraphs.com: As Donald Trump travels the country on his "Thank You" tour, appearing at large rallies, Sanders is on what seems like a shadow tour. It's interesting to consider that Sanders, proven a big draw like Trump, could occupy a sort of "Shadow President" role after a divided election that saw the Democratic candidate win the popular vote over the President-elect. From what I can tell Bernie is turning into a more couth version of Cindy Sheehan. He's going follow Trump where ever he goes to get his message out. Berniesplan is to follow Trump's initiatives...
  • Anti-Trump hatemail this holiday season

    12/05/2016 11:40:06 AM PST · by mainestategop · 4 replies
    The Bulk of hate mail I've received since August has been mostly that of anti-Trump rhetoric. Granted here there there are also lunatics who make generic statements like Oldfartrants and so on. Also, we've gotten quite a lot of flak from Europe in the form of left wing agitators and even neo-nazis. Today we present some of the more interesting hate mail. In the form of  comments made to my blog and YouTube Channel. First up is Oldfartrants: Freedom of speech allows me to voice my opinions - hopefully Führer Trump won't take that away from us - he's talking about...

    During a shouting matching Thursday night between top aides of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the President-elects campaign manager Kellyanne Conway summed up a key reason for why my Democratic Party lost and will likely continue to lose. Theres a difference for voters between what offends you and what affects you. To understand what she meant, look to the recent developments in Indiana. Millions of voters in the Rust Belt are in awe as 1,100 of their fellow blue-collar workers at Carrier narrowly missed being laid off. Instead of training Mexican replacements, these Hoosiers are celebrating an American paycheck....

    Wisconsin Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI) went on with Tucker Carlson tonight to discuss the recount in Wisconsin. Duffy said Democrats and far left Green Party supporters are stalling the recount in Dane County Wisconsin, where Madison is located. The county is holding a hand recount. The recount will not be completed by the deadline on December 20th. Therefore, according to Rep. Duffy, the state will quite possibly be forced to forfeit their electoral votes. This was the plan all along. Democrats knew they couldnt make up 20,000 votes. But they also knew if they stalled on the recount the state

    Today, about 1,000 Carrier workers and their families should be rejoicing. But the rest of our nations workers should be very nervous. President-elect Donald Trump will reportedly announce a deal with United Technologies, the corporation that owns Carrier, that keeps less than 1,000 of the 2100 jobs in America that were previously scheduled to be transferred to Mexico. Lets be clear: It is not good enough to save some of these jobs. Trump made a promise that he would save all of these jobs, and we cannot rest until an ironclad contract is signed to ensure that all of these...

    The DUmmies, now in extreme grief mode, are looking for excuses as to why their inevitable winner, Hillary, LOST the election. As a result they are now lashing out at Bernie Sanders. They now blame him for the victory of the "Mango Mussolini" as one of them so creatively labeled Donald Trump. If they want to play the blame game they should also blame Bernie for completely discrediting DUmmieland. His candidacy caused a huge rift in DUmmieland where over 90% of the DUmmies enthusiastically supported him over corrupt kleptocrat Hillary. As a result, Skinner, who was paid off with...

    (CNN)It's been a bad couple of weeks for Democrats. And if President-elect Donald Trump's early staffing choices are any indication, the next few years could be considerably worse. Come January, the Democrats will be entirely out of power in Washington for the first time in a decade. But while the immediate future seems full of inner conflict and rearguard actions to preserve political and social norms (to say nothing of President Barack Obama's legacy), there are still at least a handful of reasons for Democrats to feel grateful this holiday season. So put on those rose-colored glasses, lefties, and put...

For Salon, the unabashedly liberal site, Christmas may have come early with an op-ed from a liberal, tenured history professor from Austin, Texas, who says that he’s had it with the media lying about President-elect Donald J. Trump. Okay—maybe it’s not really a holiday miracle, but a broken clock is right twice a day. Al Martinez was honing in on one of Trump’s remarks, which got mangled in the press: that Mexicans are rapists. He juxtaposed what Trump said, followed by what the media reported, along with the notion...

He thanked me for the investigative reporting I had done about Donald Trump before the election, expressed his outrage that the Republican nominee had won and then told me quite gruffly, Get back to work. Something about his arrogance struck me, so I asked, Who did you vote for? He replied, Well, Stein, but I interrupted him and said, Youre lucky its illegal for me to...

Forty-five percent of those polled between the ages of 16 and 20 years old said they would vote for a socialist, while 20 percent said they could vote for a communist. Maybe that explains the Che Guevara T-shirts so many of them like to wear. Responding to the poll, Marion Smith, the executive director of the organization, said, "An emerging generation of Americans has little understanding of the collectivist system and its dark history." Partial credit for this should...

    On October 10, Wikileaks released part two of their emails from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta. Friday, Wikileaks released their first batch of Podestas emails, which included excerpts from Clintons Wall Street transcripts that reaffirmed why Clinton refused to release them in full. During the second presidential debate, Clinton confirmed their authenticity by attempting to defend one statement she made in the speech about having a public and private stance on political issues. She cited Abraham Lincoln, a defense comparable to her ridiculous invocation of 9/11 when pressed on her ties to Wall Street during a Democratic primary debate. The...

In other countries, people dont line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death.

    One of the big questions heading into the Democratic National Convention late last month was whether Hillary Clinton could rally Bernie Sanders supporters to her side. Before the convention, many Sanders supporters said they would support Clinton in a two-way matchup against Donald Trump, but when pollsters offered them third-party candidates as an option, they abandoned her. Then, on the first night of the convention, Sanders gave his big speech urging his voters to support Clinton, and we can now see that the convention did help persuade some Sanders voters to switch. But about a third of Sanderss voters are...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders rebuffed calls from the Green Party and a loud minority of his delegates and supporters here to abandon the Democratic Party and build a third force outside it. The Green Party, which has never again reached the heights of its 2000 performance under Ralph Nader, has held a series of Philadelphia events since the weekend aimed at persuading Sanders voters to make a "DemExit." Jill Stein, the party's likely nominee, has spoken even as rainstorms shut down meetings, repeatedly calling on Sanders to quit the Democrats and talk to her; Cornel West, a Sanders supporter...

    It's true, though, what they say: If she won this year, it would be historic. Clinton would be the first female crooked politician ever elected president of the United States PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIAThe Democratic Party comes out of this convention deeply divided, with a nominee who, 56 percent of Americans believe, should have been indicted. Tonight, Clinton was heckled repeatedly. Her supporters responded to the hecklers, outchanting them with Hill-a-ree. At times, some of us in the press area in the convention hall had difficulty hearing Clinton. Other major speakers were heckled this week, including Elizabeth Warren with chants of We...
