    If you agree like me you are very frustrated with the GOP senators. Say what you want, if this was the Democrats, he would have been confirmed already. Whether you agree with them or not, they stick to their convictions. The GOP wants to bend over backwards to show they are pro-woman when they already are. The Democrats accuse them of these things and they take the bait. IF Kavanaugh is NOT confirmed, we are going to face a wipeout in Nov like we have never seen. They are being played like fiddle and they seem to be the only...
  • Hegemony will no longer pay off for US

    US President Donald Trump will reportedly announce new tariffs on about $200 billion on Chinese imports. Meanwhile, Washington has invited Chinese officials to restart trade talks later this month. While Washington extends a carrot to Beijing, it is also swinging a stick. It is nothing new for the US to try to escalate tensions so as to exploit more gains at the negotiating table. The unilateral and hegemonic moves by the US will meet firm countermeasures from China. Against the backdrop of successive US offensives in the trade war, China will not just play defense. Nowadays economic and trade relations...
  • Can a lesbian feminist ever win the presidency in the future?

    Serious question here. We know that the Democratic Party is the identity politics party. They like to pander to women, black, Latino, millennial, gay, white women, etc. They nominated and elected the first black man (Barack Obama). They nominated the first woman (Hillary Clinton), but failed. They'll try to run a woman or a Latino candidate, potentially. However, do you see Democrats nominating a lesbian feminist, and could that person win the presidency in the future, especially since the Left controls the media, academia, etc.?
  • Jeff Sessions Is Executing Trump’s Immigration Plans With a Quiet, Efficient Brutality

    Mother Jones ^ | 7SEP18 | Sophie Murguia and Kanyakrit Vongkiatkajorn
    Over the past few months, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has faced fierce criticism for his role in the Trump administration’s family separation policy. But while the White House continues to deal with the fallout from tearing kids away from their parents at the border, Sessions has been busy orchestrating another, much quieter attack on the country’s immigration system. Tensions have been simmering for months between the attorney general and the hundreds of judges overseeing immigration courts, but they reached a new high in July. The flashpoint was the case of Reynaldo Castro-Tum, a Guatemalan man who was scheduled to appear...
  • Trump’s Inauguration Photos Were Cropped to Make Crowds Look Bigger, Report Says

    Workers were given the impression the president wanted “pictures that appeared to depict more spectators.” Shortly after his inauguration, President Donald Trump boasted about the size of the crowds in attendance, and then-press secretary Sean Spicer, in his first press conference, sided with his boss and insisted that it had been “the largest audience ever to witness an inauguration, period.” This wasn’t true, of course, but a government photographer did his best to make it seem like it was. Newly released documents obtained by the Guardian show that a National Park Service photographer, following a request from the White House,...

  • My Outline for a Federal Wealth Tax

    08/01/2018 | Brian Griffin
    To pay off the ~$21 trillion dollar federal debt, which amounts to about $60,000 per American, it is probably necessary to have annual federal wealth taxation. It is best to introduce the federal wealth tax when asset values are high, so a smaller percentage of rich people's assets have to get taxed to pay off the national debt. The tax might be levied upon the total of net personal property financial holdings and the equity in real property. The rates might be: 1% on the equity in real property habitually resided in by the filer(s), 2% on the equity in...

    When The Naked Farmer came to town looking for people to get their kit off for a good cause, dairy farmer Kerry Wilson was approached to take part. He and his partner Paul Wilson agreed, though Kerry had reservations about not having the right body type. "Gee whiz, I'm 56. Does it matter?" Kerry asked. It didn't. The cause, which raises awareness about the mental health of Australian farmers, hit a personal chord with the couple. Kerry and Paul are fifth-generation farmers who live and work together near Nimbin in the northern rivers of New South Wales. "You carry a...

    New York Daily News ^ | May 17, 2018 | By NANCY DILLON and TERENCE CULLEN
    A black porn star from the Bronx says he was duped into performing in a hardcore-racist adult film that depicts his white co-star calling him the N-word without his consent. Maurice McKnight, who goes by the stage name Moe the Monster, claims in a new lawsuit the hate speech was spewed during a shocking shoot in Tarzana, Calif., last July. McKnight says director James Joseph Camp tried - and failed - on two separate occasions during the production to get his pre-approval for use of the despicable dialogue. He claims Camp first approached him before filming began and said the...

    NOBODY, and I mean NOBODY could ever call me a Never Trumper. In fact, I was perhaps one of the very first Trump supporters on this forum. However, by using his Executive Order to ban bump-stocks as machine guns -- despite the fact that they STILL PULL ONE TRIGGER FOR ONE ROUND BEING FIRED -- he has just done something in an extra-judicial manner. Despite the clear language of the law that defines automatic weapons -- that one trigger pull discharges multiple rounds continuously -- his EO causes the language to be ignored. Now, I get that Trump bashed the...

    Where’s the conservative/libertarian organized opposition to anything? The cultural marxists, as Rahm Emanuel would say, “never let a crisis go to waste,” while the opposition sits idly by with their thumbs up their asses. The Left responds almost immediately to any catalytic event, especially tragedy. The Left is proactive, always stirring up trouble, several steps ahead of the opposition. They exploit every issue, every weakness. They leave no stones unturned. The conservative opposition is reactive at best, but invisible and limp most of the time. The conservative/libertarian opposition is meek, timid, disorganized and uncoordinated; they are always left holding the...

    Senator Edward Kennedy is a murderer. He should not be celebrated as an elder statesmen who has done wonderful things for our country (Go back and see some of his landmark bills and what they have done to this country). July 18, 1969 should be remembered for the loss of life to Mary Jo Kopechne. Mary Jo was what was called a “Boiler Room Girl” for working in, well, boiler room conditions on Robert Kennedy’s 1968 presidential campaign. She was part speech writer, part secretary, but from all accounts a nice girl who believed in Robert Kennedy and his causes...

    Reagan was their best friend so what do they do? They vote Democrat and try to make the rest of us feel guilty(with the MSM's help). The good news is that Trump is not their friend. The $10k mortgage deduction limit will do the most to prove it. Does ANYONE need help to purchase a million dollar house? They can buy a cheaper one and commute like the rest of us.
