  • Another Tiffany Brown Fail: The 'Black, Female' Card, FEMA, and Puerto Rico

    Black & Blonde Media ^ | 2/8/18 | Bob Parks
    In our nation's ongoing quest to show diversity and inclusion as demanded by the left, people who use the race card, especially the now-trendy black-female card, show incompetence in delivering what they promise but are quite competent in absconding with the taxpayer's money. As usual, when it comes to access to millions of taxpayer dollars in Washington, D.C., it all depends on who you know and we've seen it before. Five years later, we apparently still have the incompetent mixing with federal government access to millions of taxpayer dollars and a failure to deliver the goods as promised and a...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 2/9/18 | Ben Shapiro
    Imagine a group of activists so powerful that they could beam their propaganda directly into your brain. Now also imagine that they’re so sophisticated, they actually get you to pay them to do it. Unfortunately, you don’t have to imagine it. It’s real. It’s Hollywood. As big as the internet has become, Hollywood—and here, I’m talking specifically about television—is still king. Not only does it reach hundreds of millions of people with its messaging, it embeds that messaging in seemingly innocuous stories—stories that distract us from the hardships of daily life; stories that make us feel good, compassionate, and decent....
  • Fake News Flashback: CNN Declared Trump ‘Bonkers’ for Saying Clinton, Dems Behind Dossier

    Breitbart ^ | 2/7/18 | John Nolte,
    Writing for the far-left CNN back in October, Chris Cillizza declared President Donald Trump “bonkers” and “crazy” for suggesting what turned out to be 100 percent true: that the Democrats, Hillary Clinton, the FBI, and Russia, were all behind what is known as the “Russian dossier.”
  • 2006: IF ARNOLD SUPPORTED MCLINTOCK for LT. Gov.

    02/08/2018 7:18:35 AM PST · by DIRTYSECRET · 5 replies
    McLintock, the conservative, could have saved California had he won. All it would take is for Arnold to resign halfway into his 2nd term(2008) saying it's impossible to govern-forgiven. Instead he kept his distance and ended up governing as a liberal. McLintock lost and the rest is history. Shame on Arnold. He could have gone back to making movies and be held in high esteem by the GOP.
  • A 2nd Amendment Thought Experiment

    American Thinker ^ | February 8, 2018 | Peter Skurkiss
    Here's a simple thought experiment regarding the 2nd Amendment. What do you think the U.S. would be like if we didn't have it? Without the 2nd Amendment, firearms would likely be highly restricted and controlled. Various state legislatures might not vote for that, but it would come about through a combination of federal action, judicial decisions, and bureaucratic decrees. Violent crime would probably be higher as an unarmed citizenry is easy prey for criminals. In all likelihood, America would look like other Anglo countries such as Australia and Great Britain with respect to gun ownership. That's the easy part of...

    I have no idea what Nancy Pelosi was flapping her jibs about all day yesterday. Two old bags and a crone walk into a bar…I do know that instead of working with her fellow members of the House to reach a resolution on the DACA/immigration problem she spent the day protesting the impasse. The record-setting 8 hour speech was Nancy’s allocated 1 minute floor time - proving yet again that if you give a Democrat an inch they’ll take a mile.I think Nancy called on Hillary’s Dr. Feelgood before the speech and got one of his magic reanimation shots.

  • George W. Bush: There's clear evidence Russia 'meddled' in 2016 election

    Former President George W. Bush said Thursday that there is "pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled" in the 2016 presidential election, a seeming rebuke of President Donald Trump, who has at times questioned the intelligence community’s assessment that the Kremlin is to blame. "Whether (Russia) affected the outcome is another question," Bush said at conference in Abu Dhabi, according to a USA Today report. "It’s problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results.”

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 2/8/2018 | J Hines
    Feral hogs can be a pain on your property where they run rampant. Some owners have hunted them down to mitigate the problem at the ground level. Now these guys from John Coffee FB took this mitigation to the air via helicopter. Hunting these hogs at the ground level can be a chore and sometimes they do get out of your sights or they run in every direction. With this airborne approach, man, you own the sky. Once the hogs have been spotted, you can get to work quickly, yes it is like shooting ducks at a gallery. But at...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Tired of all this Winning yet? – Hey, remember when the fake news media spent the last 13 months telling you President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) was a “historically unpopular” president. Yeah, that’s a lie. In the current Rasmussen survey, the President’s approval rating of 48% is 4 points higher than Barack Obama’s approval at the same point in his first term in office. Good times…good times… Speaking of lies and lying liars, Barack Hussein Obama was back in the news in a big way on Wednesday....

    RCP Video ^ | 2-7-2018 | Ian Schwartz
    In an interview on MSNBC's All In, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) fretted about the employment future of DREAMers if they are not given legal status in the upcoming budget bill deal. She also denounced the "deportation cloud" over 800,000 DREAMers, that "on a whim," the president can just say, "done, you are out of here." "If these people don't have legal status, then how is it they're going to work in the United States? How are they going to support themselves? How are they going to support their families?" the Senator asked. "We built a country based on the notion...

    Politico ^ | February 07, 2018
    As with many of his Republican predecessors, Trump has effectively tapped into the sense among millions of Americans that pride in the United States is diminishing, not only abroad but at home. Many of his supporters share a sentiment that D.C., N.Y. and L.A. “elites” are embarrassed about our country and our achievements. This is why, as a candidate for the White House, Trump frequently lambasted President Barack Obama for his alleged global “apology tour.” It’s why he’s waded into the protection of confederate monuments and claimed that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln might be the next to...

    In 2012 Rebecca Sommer founded the refugee aid association Arbeitsgruppe Flucht + Menschen-Rechte (AG F+M) [Working Group Asylum + Human Rights]. At the end of 2015, this artist, photographer and journalist and documentary maker applauded Angela Merkel’s decision to open German’s borders to the “refugees” who had been blocked in Hungary, despite the vacuum effect this would create. “At that time I wanted to help everyone and truly believed that all these people were fleeing hell and were in a state of complete distress,” the German activist explained in an article published by the conservative Polish weekly Do Rzeczy on...

THE DOJ'S DISCOVERY EVIDENCE EXPERT HAS APPARENTLY WEIGHED IN ON THE CASE AND WANTS TO BRING BACK THE CHARGES AGAINST THE BUNDY'S AND RYAN PAYNE. WHEN THE DISCOVERY EVIDENCE EXPERT WAS BROUGHT IN LAST MONTH, THE DOJ OF ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS SAID IT WAS TAKING THE CASE 'SERIOUSLY'. WE NOW KNOW APPARENTLY WHERE THE AG AND DOJ STAND.

    Federal prosecutors in Oregon have responded to Jason Patrick's motion in connection with the Oregon Standoff case. They claim Bunkerville evidence is not related to the Oregon protest. Patrick is seeking a delay in sentencing, release from jail and discovery of hidden evidence that emerged in the Bunkerville case including the threat asssessments that pointed to little or no danger being posed by the Bundy's and their supporters at Bunkerville. Patrick is set to be sentenced in connection with his convictions in connection with the Oregon Standoff protest on Thursday February 15th. Patrick was convicted in the second Oregon Standoff...

    He got a job with fixed term contract and told his friend. His friend also wants a job where he works and she applied for a position in the same company. She is now being interviewed for the permanent position and he is jealous. He knows it's bad. Jealousy is one of the seven deadly sins and many people are plagued with this passion. Most people will probably say no if you ask them if they are jealous of something. But they don't realize jealousy can plague us in casual life situations without us knowing about it specifically. Today I...
