  • Strategy to stop Chucky Schumer Shutdown; No IRS Refund Checks

    If Trump wants to hit the Democrat base hard and put maximum pressure on the Dem's, he needs to announce that during the "Chucky Schumer Shutdown" there will be no IRS refund checks. Between the earned income credit and the child tax credit, low income taxpayers with children can get over $8,000 in tax refund without paying anything in. These people drool and chomp at the bit, screaming if their refunds don't arrive ASAP. They will put lots of pressure on the Dem's.
  • Trump's Exec Order Protecting the US From Foreign Terrorist Entry; Initial Section 11 Report

    On March 6, 2017, President Donald J. Trump issued Executive Order 13780, Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States, which declared that “it is the policy of the United States to protect its citizens from terrorist attacks, including those committed by foreign nationals,” and directed a series of actions to enhance the security of the American people. The actions directed by Executive Order 13780 have—among other things—raised the baseline for the vetting and screening of foreign nationals, improved our ability to prevent the entry of malicious actors, and enhanced the security of the American people. According...

    On Friday DOJ officials in the District of Maryland announced Mark Lambert from Mount Airy, Maryland was indicted with 11 counts related to foreign bribery.

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — In a case that pits freedom of expression and equality against public decency, three women are challenging a New Hampshire city ordinance prohibiting public nudity and taking it to the state's highest court. Heidi Lilley, Kia Sinclair and Ginger Pierro were ticketed in 2016 in Laconia after they went topless at Weirs Beach over Memorial Day weekend. Pierro was doing yoga, while the other two were sunbathing. Some beachgoers complained and a police officer asked them to cover up. When they refused, they were arrested. A legal motion to dismiss a case against the women was...

  • FLASHBACK: That Time Obama Called Libya A ‘S**t Show’

    Daily Caller ^ | Benny Johnson
    Following President Trump’s Thursday comments, it’s worth noting that former President Obama called the African country of Libya a “sh*@ show” just two years ago. The comments were recorded in an interview with The Atlantic. The wide-ranging interview was based on Obama’s foreign policy over his eight years in office. During one portion of the interview, Obama said described Libya as a “mess” to the interviewer but behind closed doors called the country a “sh*@ show.” The comments received little coverage when made public at the end of Obama’s term.

    I answered a phone call today from the Democrat Congressional Fundraising Committee, trying to raise money to swing the 2018 congressional elections to the Democrats. (It was not my phone). I proceeded to explain that I just found out that the money I gave to Hillary and the Democrat Campaign went along with the $10 million to pay for the fake corrupt dossier and I will never give to anyone other than directly to candidates. I acted very disappointed and furious at what they had done with my money.(I told a fib as there is no way I ever gave...

    Be interesting to reread Orwell's "Animal Farm" based on Joseph Stalin's betrayal of the Russian Revolution and fit today's political players into the book's characters. It is about a group of animals who rebel against the humans who run the farm they live on and run it themselves with hopes of being equal, free, and happy. In the end, however, the new rule becomes a cruel tyranny of its own led by the pigs.PigsOld Major – A prize-winning pig. He is the one who inspires all the animals to rebel against the humans.

    For any divorce or separation agreement executed after Dec. 31, 2018, the act provides that alimony and separate maintenance payments are not deductible by the payer spouse. It repealed the provisions that provided that those payments were includible in income by the payee spouse. This will diminish the income benefits of increasing alimony and decreasing property settlement to take advantage of the differences in tax rates and deductions between the former spouses.

    Had several ROBO calls over the past two days from 704-935-5630, Kannapolis, NC identifying themselves as Young Republicans. They were soliciting donations. This is an exchange in the Charlotte NC area. I do not live near there. I think it was a scam as the woman was very rude on the phone as I explained that after Alabama I only give directly to the candidate, not to the Party. Is this even legal?

    What will be the new name for false sexual allegations? What is happening now reminds me of McCarthyism. Per Wiki, McCarthyism is the practice of making accusations of subversion or treason without proper regard for evidence. The term refers to U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy and has its origins in the period in the United States known as the Second Red Scare, lasting roughly from 1947 to 1956 and characterized by heightened political repression as well as a campaign spreading fear of Communist influence on American institutions and of espionage by Soviet agents. McCarthyism has taken on a broader meaning, describing...
