  • Dems' Trump Hysteria is Desperate Attempt to Keep Union & Black Voters

    Democrats fear Trump will create jobs and help urban communities causing union workers and blacks to abandon the Democrat party. Without union workers and blacks, Democrats will face huge obstacles in future elections especially in the swing states. This is why George Soros, Al Sharpton, and Van Jones are playing their roles to undermine Trump’s presidency. Democrats will do anything for power — including undermining a president even before he is sworn into office.

    On Nov. 8, Donald Trump managed to pull the biggest upset in U.S. politics by tapping successfully into the anger of white voters and appealing to the lowest inclinations of people in a manner that would have probably impressed Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels himself. But what exactly does Trump's victory mean and what can one expect from this megalomaniac when he takes over the reins of power on Jan. 20, 2017? What is Trump's political ideology, if any and is "Trumpism" a movement? Will U.S. foreign policy be any different under a Trump administration? Some years ago, public intellectual Noam...

    If you want to stop being played as a chump, turn off the CNN/MSM and disengage from the self-referential social media distraction. Let's start by asking: if Trump had lost and his supporters had angrily taken to the streets, destroying private property and threatening police officers while proclaiming "not my president," would the mainstream media have characterized the rioters differently than it has the pro-Clinton rioters? Any fair-minded observer knows the answer is yes: the CNN/MSM would have lambasted the "rioting deplorables" as "what's wrong with America." Substitution is a useful tool to expose bias. How come the CNN/mainstream corporate...

    (CNN)Some women are on the hunt for reversible birth control that could last through a Donald Trump presidency. Tweets and Facebook posts about getting intrauterine devices, or IUDs, swept social media Wednesday as women warned each other that their access to birth control might dwindle once the President-elect takes office next year.~SNIP~Throughout his campaign, Trump has promised to repeal the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, which mandates that insurers in the health insurance marketplace provide coverage for all FDA-approved birth control methods, including IUDs, with no copayment or coinsurance when provided in-network.

    California Gov. Jerry Brown, who earlier this year mused about building a wall around the state should Republican Donald Trump be elected, pledged Thursday to do his part to find common ground with the president elect. But Brown also put Trump on notice that “as Californians, we will also stay true to our basic principles. We will protect the precious rights of our people and continue to confront the existential threat of our time – devastating climate change.” Despite his complicated history with the Clintons, Brown endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton a week before California’s June primary, and then campaigned for...

    FULL TITLE: 'Get your birth control that will outlast Trump': Women are being urged to get IUDs before Donald is officially sworn in as president amid healthcare fears Women are being urged to get IUDs before Donald Trump becomes president amid fears over the future of birth control. Supporters of the contraceptive are using Twitter to encourage women to have the device - which can last for up to ten years - fitted while it is still covered to safeguard against potential changes to healthcare under the new president-elect. It comes after the Republican pledged to 'completely repeal Obamacare' under...
  • David Stockman warns both Trump and Clinton could lead to 25% sell-off

    David Stockman, the man widely credited as the "Father of Reaganomics", delivered an alarming message to investors. Sell everything! "The markets are hideously inflated," warned Stockman on CNBC's "Fast Money" this week. The former Director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan urged investors to dump stocks and bonds ahead of the dangers that both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton pose to markets if either is elected as President. "If you don't sell before the election, certainly do it afterwards. Government is going to be totally paralyzed regardless of who wins," he said. "There could be...

    Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton asks Americans to think hard before electing Donald Trump, suggesting that his “dark and dangerous” views might split the country, leading to civil war or even nuclear war. “He has a dark and divisive vision for America that could tear our country apart,” Clinton said to supporters in Cincinnati, Ohio on Halloween. Clinton specifically referred to the Civil War, suggesting that the country faced a similar threat of divisiveness from Donald Trump.

    X On Friday, the non-partisan Brookings Institution released a paper which describes the expected impact of the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election on the global financial markets, reports the Huffington Post. Authored by the University of Michigan's Justin Wolfers and Dartmouth College's Eric Zitzewitz, the piece notes, "...we estimate that market participants believe that a Trump victory would reduce the value of the S&P 500, the UK, and Asian stock markets by 10-15%, would reduce the oil price by $4, would lead to a 25% decline in the Mexican Peso, and would significantly increase expected future stock market...

    Josh Feldman at Mediaite pointed out that star PBS filmmaker Ken Burns is out on cable television ranting the liberal line again. The program was Amanpour on CNN International after the debate on Thursday. Christiane Amanpour, his fellow Obama enthusiast, was interviewing him about his latest PBS documentary on saving Jews from the Nazis, which they both naturally thought offered Republican parallels. First, they freaked out about Trump refusing to concede defeat 20 days before the voting ends and before anyone knows who won: AMANPOUR: What do you make first and foremost of the major Republican candidate refusing to accept...

    Donald Trump’s ‘Make America great again’ slogan and this Republican Congress's actions raise unanswered questions Recently I appeared at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Penn., for a talk entitled “Making America As Good As Its Promise.” So you don’t confuse the theme of my talk with the slogan of a particular presidential campaign, let me delineate the difference. When I hear Donald Trump suggest that he wants to “make America great again,” it always triggers the same three questions in my head. One: How is Trump defining “greatness”? I’m not sure he and I share an understanding of what makes a...

    The tests in the Nevada desert come as tensions rise with Russia and the Pentagon seeks to replace its aging nuclear arsenal. A pair of U.S. Air Force B-2 bombers dropped two 700-pound faux nuclear bombs in the middle of the Nevada desert within the past few days. Now the Pentagon wants to tell you about it.Conducted “earlier this month,” according to an Oct. 6 press release, the test involved two dummy variants of the B61, a nuclear bomb that has been in the U.S. arsenal since the 1960s. One was an “earth penetrator” made to strike underground targets, the other...
  • POPSCI: DON'T TAKE WEATHER ADVICE FROM MATT DRUDGE

    As Hurricane Matthew charges into Florida with winds up to 140 mph, approximately 1.5 million people are preparing to clear out of the storm’s path. By Thursday evening, the National Weather Service was imploring residents to head to safety. “Now is the time to urgently hide from the wind. Failure to adequately shelter may result in serious injury, loss of life or immense human suffering,” the agency said on its website. On Thursday, President Obama declared a State of Emergency in Florida. And then there was Matt Drudge, who was instead declaring a state of conspiracy. The founder of the...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is reaching out to the African-American community these days, and in a new interview with Newsweek, at least part of that community is reaching back. Chicago rapper, actor, and White House invitee Common doesn’t seem to be persuaded by Trump’s newfound concern for black voters, if this interview is any indication: “America wouldn’t be taking a step back… we’d be taking 12 steps back [if Trump becomes president],” the Chicago-born musician and activist tells Newsweek. “It would be returning to some of the mentality of racism we’ve seen in the mid-Sixties, in the civil rights...

    Chicago’s murder rate has soared. A new study from the Brennan Center for Justice reveals the murder rate rose by more than 13 percent in the 25 biggest cities in America in 2015 – and the common denominator among the three cities that “account for more than half” this hike is they’re run by Democrats who impose hefty gun controls on the populace.

    On the Sunday morning before this year’s South Carolina primary, Dr. Carl Broggi, the pastor of Community Bible Church in Beaufort, turned over his pulpit—emblazoned with the Protestant watchword “sola scriptura,” to GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz. I am not sure if it is fair to call Cruz’s speech that morning a “sermon.” The candidate did not open up a biblical text and carefully explain its meaning in the way that I am sure Dr. Broggi had been trained to do at Dallas Theological Seminary and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Cruz did mention a few verses from the Bible during...

    **snip** ...Ted Cruz has endorsed policies that would fundamentally change who pays the federal government’s bills, and how.Expect the establishment wing of the Republican Party to increasingly draw attention to this fact, especially when it comes to his tax policy. While on the one hand Cruz’s plan hews to Republican orthodoxy in its large tax cuts for the wealthy, he also embraces a European-style Value Added Tax, which is a lot like a sales tax, as replacement for all payroll taxes, and which would enable the elimination of all income tax outside a 10% flat tax for all earners...**snip** ...The...

    The perils of climate change are well known, but rising sea levels could also alter human evolution, scientists have claimed. Rising sea levels could force communities to live in underwater or semi-aquatic towns which could change out physiology. Dr Matthew Skinner a paleoanthropologist from the University of Kent, claims that humans could evolve to have webbed hands and feet and less body hair so they could move quickly through the water. Our eyes would even become more like cats, so we could see in the murky gloom of seas and rivers and our lungs would shrink as we became used...

The transcriptions yielded 95,000 words and several powerful patterns, demonstrating how Mr. Trump has built one of the most surprising political movements in decades and, historians say, echoing the appeals of some demagogues of the past century.... ....constant repetition...
