  • America’s Derangement Syndrome A Danger To World Peace

    07/21/2018 8:16:08 PM PDT · by blam · 17 replies
    It is significant that Presidents Putin and Trump have both spoken out against “haters” among America’s political establishment who would rather see conflict between Russia and the United States instead of a normalization of bilateral relations. Following their landmark, successful summit this week in Helsinki, Putin and Trump separately made public comments deploring the hostile hysterical reaction emanating from broad sections of the US political establishment and its dutiful, controlled news media. Speaking in Moscow to his diplomatic corps, President Putin warned that there were “powerful forces” within the US which are ready to sacrifice the interests of their country...

    One of former President Bill Clinton's past advisers is pleading with Hillary Clinton not to run for president in 2020, amid speculation that she is mulling throwing her hat once again in the ring. Lanny Davis, the former special counsel to President Clinton, said Wednesday that he would advise Hillary Clinton against launching another bid for the presidency “for her sake and her family’s sake.” “She has so much to give in public service, and for her sake and her family’s sake, she has so much to give in public service, I hope she doesn’t put herself through it again,"...

    NEW YORK (AP) - Members of the Congressional Black Caucus have joined New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in calling on the U.S. Senate to reject Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh because of his expansive interpretation of gun rights and the Second Amendment. Cuomo, a Democrat, said Saturday that Kavanaugh's past opinions show that he believes it is a constitutional right to carry "even the most dangerous assault weapons." Rep. Gregory Meeks, a New York Democrat, called Kavanaugh's nomination "a grave threat to reasonable gun control measures enacted by states." Meeks and other lawmakers joined Cuomo at a Manhattan news conference...

    A former Hillary Clinton spokesman issued a savage response to James B. Comey on Twitter Wednesday after the fired FBI director called on Americans to “vote for Democrats” this November. “Democrats don’t want your endorsement, but thanks,” Brian Fallon, a CNN commentator who served as Mrs. Clinton’s national press secretary during her 2016 presidential campaign, tweeted to his 155,000 followers on Wednesday. Mr. Fallon was responding to a tweet late Tuesday by Mr. Comey, a former Republican, that called on people to vote Democratic in order to preserve America’s values....

    For Rachel Conner, the 2018 election season has been a moment of revelation. A 27-year-old social worker, Ms. Conner voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries, spurning the more liberal Bernie Sanders, whom many of her peers backed. But Ms. Conner changed course in this year’s campaign for governor, after concluding that Democrats could only win with more daring messages on issues like public health and immigration. And so on a recent Wednesday, she enlisted two other young women to volunteer for Abdul El-Sayed, a 33-year-old advocate of single-payer health care running an uphill race in Michigan to become...
  • Where Do ‘Centrist’ Democrats Turn in 2020?

    NY Mag ^ | 7/21/18 | Ed Kilgore
    There’s no question that the story of the Democratic party right now is about the ascending left. There’s a bumper crop of self-consciously progressive candidates running for office this year, while many relatively non-ideological “Establishment Democrats” are embracing policy positions and political messages long associated with party insurgents. The relative strength of various Democratic factions in Congress won’t be possible to reliably measure until after the midterms. But with the 2020 presidential election cycle soon to begin (the first candidate debates will probably be held about this time next year), it’s looking like progressives may have many more viable options...

    PORTLAND, Maine — A week ago, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasn't quite ready to consider himself a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organization's values and endorsement in his bid to become a U.S. senator. Three days later, he told The Associated Press it was time to join up. He's now the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist. Ringelstein's leap is the latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movement's...

    The widely hailed, broadcast, heralded campaign trek of Democrat Party, Socialists/Communists,Bernie Sanders & the new Democrat bright star, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez into the state of Kansas, has clearly revealed that Sanders & Ocasio-Cortez are far from ready for prime time campaigning. Both them made off-course, conflicting comments and certainly, none of their campaign stops were anything to write home about. Their biggest rally attendee numbers were quoted by different Kansas media at 1000, 2,000, 3,000 or 4,000 (Choose your choice). Their performance was poorly flat as compared to a usual, routine, massively attended, great positive energy, POTUS, Donald J.Trump rally (Expect...

    US Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) said he won't allow anymore meetings between President Trump and Russian President Putin "until I have seen a full transcript of their one-on-one private talks and am satisfied that Trump has not committed treason." Even if Schumer's demand were not an egregious overstepping of his limited authority as Senate Minority Leader, its fulfillment is impeded by the fact that the one-on-one talk was not recorded. Nevertheless, Schumer was adamant that "the American people have a right to know what was said. His public statement expressing doubts about our own intelligence community's accuracy regarding...

    Democrats in Congress demanded this week that Marina Gross, the translator in the room with President Trump and President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland on Monday, come to Washington and tell them what was discussed in the closed-door meeting. Republicans, even anti-Trump ones, are resisting the effort. When House Intelligence Democrats brought the subpoena to a vote, every Republican on the committee voted against it.Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) explained why subpoenaing the interpreter could set a dangerous precedent. It could be the "last time" the U.S. president ever meet privately with a foreign leader. "Absolutely not," Lindsey Graham said when...

    Did US President Donald Trump commit treason in Helsinki when he met Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin? Should he be impeached? That is what his opponents claim. Former president Barack Obama’s CIA director John Brennan accused Trump of treason outright. AP reporter John Lemire placed Trump in an impossible position. Noting that Putin denied meddling in the 2016 elections and the intelligence community insists that Russia meddled, he asked Trump, “Who do you believe?” If Trump had said that he believed his intelligence community and gave no credence to Putin’s denial, he would have humiliated Putin and destroyed any...

    The Coolidge Reagan Foundation, a non-profit organization, has filed a 22-page federal election complaint today with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) against Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and their law firm Perkins Coie. Another target of their legal complaint is against Christopher Steele, the ex-British spy that authored the infamous, false dossier on President Trump. The foundation is focused on Hillary Clinton and Democrat insiders’ illegal use of money transfers and payments to and from Fusion GPS, which is the firm hired by Steele to compile the dossier. The brazen money transfers are in violation of...

But because we live in America, where it has been established unequivocally that at least half of us - and the entire media - are clinging to sanity by a very thin thread, they will continue to talk treason, impeachment and court intrigue instead. It must be exhausting to be a Democrat.Bonus shot: Melania at Microsoft in the UK:I’ve got appointments all day, so have at it troops.Posted from: MOTUS...

    Fox News ^ | July 19th, 2018 | By Gregg Re
    Liberal lawmakers and pundits, emboldened by bipartisan outrage over President Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, have kicked up calls to pursue impeachment -- indicating the issue could fast become the next litmus test for Democratic candidates. The discussion follows the recent political frenzy over calls to "abolish" Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). That effort briefly served as a similar litmus test in the wake of Trump's zero-tolerance immigration policy, which led to family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border. The GOP-controlled House countered on Wednesday with a vote on a resolution expressing support for ICE, effectively daring Democrats to...

    Rep. Maxine Waters warned supporters on Wednesday of potential "armed protests" against her after an extremist group called for ongoing demonstrations outside her office in Los Angeles. In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that's staged armed protests in cities across the country. She warned her supporters against being "baited" into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of "violent and provocative behavior." "I am requesting those individuals and groups planning a counter-protest to...

    House Democrats say they finally have a midterm slogan that can burst through President Trump’s “tweet” machine: “For the People.” Illinois Rep. Cheri Bustos, co-chair of House Democrats’ messaging arm, and her colleagues unveiled the new line Wednesday after a private meeting with members. They say it sums up the party’s position on three core issues: health care costs, infrastructure projects and efforts to expose corruption. “We basically put it all on paper to say here are our top issues — they’re simple, they’re easy to understand,” the lawmaker told Politico. “That’s how you break through this tweet machine coming...
