  • [Flasback] Huge number of federal employees may quit if Trump wins

    10/13/2019 6:12:38 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 91 replies ^ | 2/1/16 | Douglas Ernst
    Donald Trump may be the only candidate in U.S. history who could shrink the size of the federal government simply by swearing in as commander in chief. A poll of federal employees conducted by Government Business Council Jan. 20-26 found that a Trump victory may result in roughly 25 percent of the government's workforce quitting.

    Republicans at President Donald Trump's rally in Minneapolis on Thursday will reportedly be escorted by a typically heavily armed group that has been called "one of the largest radical anti-government groups in the U.S. today." That is how the Southern Poverty Law Center describes the Oath Keepers, who refer to themselves as "guardians of the republic." On the group's website, it describes itself as a "non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to 'defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.'" The Oath...
  • John Brennan admits he ‘may have been fooled’ by bad info on Trump’s Russia connections

    10/08/2019 1:44:15 PM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 90 replies
    From The New York Post: Former head of the CIA John Brennan admitted on Monday that he may have relied on “bad information” for his relentless attacks on President Trump. Brennan — who once warned that “our Nation’s future is at stake” — told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he may have been misled on the extent of Trump’s connections to Russia. “Well, I don’t know if I received bad information but I think I suspected there was more than there actually was,” Brennan said. “I am relieved that it’s been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the Russian...

    We have flourished as a people because of our success in establishing self-government. But all of these results are predicated upon a law-abiding people. If our own country should be given over to violence and crime, it would be necessary to diminish the bounds of our freedom to secure order and self-preservation. ~President Calvin Coolidge, Memorial Day, 1927What if we just stopped paying taxes?Really. If our republic has now descended into a land of, by, and for illegal aliens, with law enforcement in major cities now refusing to enforce the laws of this land, then what is the recourse...
  • Trump Letter Dares Pelosi to Vote On Impeachment Inquiry

    10/03/2019 8:00:30 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 77 replies ^ | 10/03/2019
    The White House is planning to send Speaker Nancy Pelosi a letter as soon as Friday arguing that President Trump and his team can ignore lawmakers' demands until she holds a full House vote formally approving an impeachment inquiry, 2 sources familiar with the letter tell Axios. Why it matters: By putting in writing the case that Trump and his supporters have been making verbally for days, the White House is preparing for a court fight and arguing to the public that its resistance to Congress' requests is justified. Trump wants to force House Democrats in vulnerable races to be...

I've been studying politics and political history for the past 30 years. My specialty is U.S. Presidents. That said, I hope that the House of Representatives impeaches Trump. Let me tell you what will happen next! 1. The House can pass articles of impeachment over the objections of the Republicans, and refer to the Senate for trial. 2. The Senate will conduct a trial. There will be a vote, and the Republicans will vote unanimously, along with a small number...
  • This Woman Just Slapped Down Soy Boy Beto's Gun Confiscation Proposal Right Right To His Face

    Not all heroes wear capes. That’s a saying that’s tossed around a lot for feel-good moments. In Colorado, one woman flatly rejected Bob O’Rourke’s proposal to confiscate firearms, telling him to his face that she’s an AR-15 owner and there was no way the government was taking it away from her. The funny thing about Bob is that he thinks his proposal will be successful because Americans would just comply. And this also circles back into the notion that liberals have zero sense of history other than saying that the Founders were evil racists whose statues should be removed and...

    The boomerang from the Democratic Party’s failed attempt to connect Donald Trump to Russia’s 2016 election meddling is picking up speed, and its flight path crosses right through Moscow’s pesky neighbor, Ukraine. That is where there is growing evidence a foreign power was asked, and in some cases tried, to help Hillary Clinton. In its most detailed account yet, the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington says a Democratic National Committee (DNC) insider during the 2016 election solicited dirt on Donald Trump’s campaign chairman and even tried to enlist the country's president to help. In written answers to questions, Ambassador Valeriy Chaly's...

    HOUSTON (KTRK/CNN) - Houston police are searching for a group of people who demanded Popeyes chicken sandwiches at gunpoint Monday night. Authorities say two women and three men stormed the front door of the restaurant with at least one weapon. They had just been told at the drive-through window that the store was sold out of the popular sandwiches. An employee was able to lock the doors before the five could get inside. The group left a baby inside their vehicle as they tried to enter the restaurant. There were no injuries reported. Police are trying to develop descriptions of...

    Former vice president of Walt Disney Pictures and Television, Michael Laney, 73, has been sentenced to more than 6 years in prison following a child sex abuse investigation. The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said Laney was sentenced on Friday to 81 months in prison after being found guilty for four counts of first-degree sexual abuse on May 7. In addition to Laney’s prison sentence, the former VP also has to register as a sex offender. According to WTKR, the evidence presented during Laney’s trial showed that in March 2018, a young girl disclosed she had been sexually abused by...

    An Orange County legislator is under fire for posting a controversial message on Facebook. Republican Legislator Joseph Minuta posted on Facebook, "Regardless of your orientation… I'm proud to be heterosexual. Funny how in my entire life, I never felt like it was important to voice such things before our current social celebrations started." Constituent Daniel Sloane of New Windsor says it is offensive. "When someone from public office takes this stance, regardless if that's your personal view or not, you represent your constituents," says Sloane. "Your constituents are largely LGBTQ more and more." Democratic Legislator Kevindaryán Luján reacted as well,...

    MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell says he has a source who told him Russian oligarchs signed off loans given to President Trump by Deutsche Bank. Lawyers for the German lender told a federal appeals court Tuesday that the bank has documents sought by Democrat-led House committees, which subpoenaed Deutsche Bank and Capital One for financial records related to Trump, his family, and businesses, but declined to reveal if they have Trump's tax returns.

    The United States' surging oil and gas production will soon allow the country to surpass Saudi Arabia in liquid petroleum exports. While Saudi Arabia will remain the top crude oil exporter, the U.S. is destined to usurp the kingdom as soon as late 2019 when it comes to overall liquid petroleum exports, including fuels and some natural gas liquids, according to a new report from the Norwegian research firm Rystad Energy. "Increasingly profitable shale production and a robust global appetite for light oil and gasoline is poised to bring the U.S. to a position of oil dominance in the next...

    China’s efforts to lure its scientists back from overseas institutions have been paying off militarily, with more than a little help from the United States. Military projects they have been involved in include China’s development of hypersonic weapons capable of penetrating missile-defence systems and the design of new submarines able to patrol quietly along the US west coast, researchers familiar with the programmes told the South China Morning Post. For more than a decade, China has been ramping up efforts to lure back talented scientists working at laboratories in the US linked to America’s nuclear weapons programme and other military...

    Full Title: Obama on wealth inequality: ‘There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have.’ Former United States President Barack Obama believes that ballooning wealth inequality is a threat to society, and that those who have the means should help those who are less fortunate. “Right now I’m actually surprised by how much money I got,” the 44th President said in his address to more than 10,000 people gathered in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Tuesday. “There’s only so much you can eat.

    LARGO — A jury found Michael Drejka guilty of manslaughter late Friday in the 2018 shooting death of Markeis McGlockton in a convenience store parking lot. The conviction came after 6˝ hours of deliberations by the jury of five men and one woman. It was read aloud at 10:41 p.m. Drejka stared straight ahead, standing beside his lawyers. He could face up to 30 years in prison. In the front row of the gallery, McGlockton’s girlfriend, Britany Jacobs threw up her hands and clapped. A woman broke into sobs. McGlockton’s father pressed his elbows into his knees as supporters squeezed...
