    If you were following the news last week, you’re probably aware of the Russian spy-plane that got shot-down during an illegal Israeli attack on Syrian targets. To make a long story short, Israel jet-fighters attacked military targets in Syria, and a Russian surveillance aircraft was caught in the middle, as the Israelis failed to warn the Russians about the impending attack in a timely fashion, hence the Russian surveillance aircraft was hit and downed by Syria’s outdated missile systems, being caught between a rock and a hard place so to speak (in the crossfire basically). Until now, the Syrian army...

    In his careful reading of the available reports of the accusation made by Deborah Ramirez against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra found ten serious problems for those who want to believe it. Here they are: 1. The New Yorker could not find a single witness who could put Kavanaugh at the alleged party. 2. The New York Times could not find a single person who could corroborate Ramirez's claims. 3. The man accused of egging on Kavanaugh denied Ramirez's allegations and vouched for Kavanaugh's character. 4. A third person that Ramirez claimed was at the party says...
  • DiFi's Kavanaugh Lie Right Out of Alinsky's 'Rules for Radicals'

    Democrats are so corrupt, and such vile liars and cheaters, they will do anything to win Sen. Dianne Feinstein has much to be ashamed about in her lengthy political career… but first comes to mind is her reprehensible attempt to prevent Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the United States Supreme Court… a tactic right out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. No doubt, on behalf of the entire radical Democratic National Committee, Feinstein (D-CA) advanced the 36-year old naked allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, brought by Christine Blasey Ford. Yet DiFi sat on Ford’s letter for...
  • [Flashback] George Lucas makes anti-Trump ad modeled after Daisy attack ad.

    Is Donald Trump as dangerous as Darth Vader? Well, the Dark Lord of the Sith and his evil colleagues blew up Alderaan, Princess Leia's home planet. And "Star Wars" creator George Lucas, it seems, believes Trump could blow up Earth. That's why Lucas "proposed the idea" for a political ad that is now running in the key battleground state of Ohio, former Democratic Sen. Bill Bradley told "With All Due Respect" co-host Mark Halperin on Tuesday. The TV spot offers no lightsabers or Death Stars. The "Star Wars" universe, after all, is now owned by Disney. Instead, the inspiration was...

    OK I posted two threads in the last week with discussions about the Ford "woman" and DiFi getting censured for making a mockery of the SCOTUS pick process, and bother were deleted. Why? I will grant the first one was iffy (It was about For bragging that she 'pulled the train" in high school) But the 2nd was a valid discussion of Di Fi getting censured for her behavior and removed from the committee. What was wrong with THAT? I posted it in chit/chat
  • Democrats’will regret their ugly anti-American display in Kavanaugh hearings

    We’ve seen this before in 1968 during the Democrat National Convention in Chicago. In 1968 a Democrat was CAUGHT on television yelling the anti-Jewish slur; “F$%k you, you Jew son of a bitch." Does anyone think it impossible to HEAR a Democrat LOOK into a camera and yell, “F$%k you, you conservative son of a bitch," at Judge Brett Kavanaugh? Their antics didn’t end well for the Democrats then; and they won’t end well for them today. The Chicago riots in and around the 1968 Democrat National Convention shocked America. The Democrats’ ugly displays were made worse for them because...

  • Bill Clinton & the Reagan Tax Cuts

    09/24/2018 6:49:59 AM PDT · by DIRTYSECRET · 12 replies
    Ok we agree that the tax cuts in 81' gave us 20 years of growth. Billy Jeff rested on Reagans laurels. BJ raised taxes in 93' and the economy kept growing anyway. Trump wins and the economy grows before he even takes office to the point where the Kenyan claims credit. How right are we? Hard to believe Reagan's cuts could withstand 8 years of BJ's raise. How right is the Kenyan? Why won't the folks at Fidelity/Vanguard take sides when the answer is staring in their faces?

    It strikes me that the world would be much better off if we still institutionalized the insane amongst us before they were allowed to become criminally insane. That way we wouldn’t have so many of them stepping forward with unsubstantiated allegations to act as the New Left Progressives’ spoilers.Just a quick re-cap of where we stand as of today:Ford: completely unsubstantiated allegation that, while drunk, she was groped by a 17 year old Brett KavanaughRamirez: completely unsubstantiated allegation that Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while playing a drinking game in college (as if that would be scandalous even if...

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) So it’s not the Clarence Thomas playbook after all, it’s the Roy Moore playbook. – The Campaign Update was wrong 10 days ago when it noted that the Democrats were going to give Brett Kavanaugh the Clarence Thomas treatment, and mount another “high-tech lynching” to gin up their demented voter base. Instead, as Sunday’s events clearly demonstrate, it’s the Roy Moore treatment instead. Which makes sense when you think about it: The Democrat effort to kill the Clarence Thomas nomination by bringing forward a single accuser spinning tall tales was an abject...

    Is there an doubt that Jeff Flake is playing the democrat-assisting Arlen Specter role in these confirmation hearings. If the Kavanaugh nomination is killed it will be the ULTIMATE revenge of the moderate-liberal wing of the republican party. Revenge for denying Flake another term Revenge for successfully running a conservative against Murkowski. Revenge for the Tea Party in general Revenge for defeating Eric Cantor Revenge for defeating Jeb! Revenge for supporting Trump! Revenge! Revenge! Revenge!

    ArticleVBlog ^ | September 24th, 2018 | Rodney Dodsworth
    Our Framers corrected several shortcomings in the English approach to lawmaking. In England, the same people who write statutes also amend the English constitution. We can thank the Framers for their foresight in Article V. Unfortunately, in the name of a living and breathing Constitution, our government increasingly takes the easier British path to amendments, through the government itself. Whether through a formal amending procedure or not, the corruption of both constitutions picked up steam after simultaneous Progressive victories in the early 20th century. Below, we’ll find that Progressive democracy won in 1911 and 1913 in the House of Lords...

    The Senate Armed Services Committee, right as the U.S. negotiates the removal of nuclear missiles from North Korea, is set to consider a new Army general to head U.S. forces on the Korean Peninsula. Gen. Robert “Abe” Abrams will testify in a committee hearing Tuesday on his nomination to command U.S. Forces Korea and two other key military commands in South Korea. The Army general would take charge of 28,500 troops stationed in the South after a year of rollercoaster relations, and as President Trump considers a second summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on the regime’s...

    When Ed introduced the lastest player in the Christine Blasey Ford saga last night, it seemed like bad news for Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s detractors. The identity of the fourth person at the alleged party where Ford claims to have been assaulted turned out to be Leland Ingham Keyser, who describes herself as a “lifelong friend” of Ford’s. Unfortunately for Ford’s story, Keyser released a statement saying that she’s never met Kavanaugh and, like everyone else listed as party attendees, has no recollection of any such party. There’s one element to this latest revelation which should be setting off some alarm...

    The once silver-tongued Obama is not only losing his voice, he’s losing his rock star status and crowd support Odd, isn’t it, that 100 percent of the women coming forward with sexual assault and harassment stories decades after they supposedly took place are all connected, in one way or another to the Democrats? Take a look out over the horizon and you won’t find even one Republican victim of sexual assault or harassment coming forward during the Midterm Election campaign. Could that be because the #MeToo movement only embraces Democrat Damsels in Distress?

    Yesterday, there were two steps forward on the road to the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh. The lawyers for Christine Ford, she’s the California woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of groping her at a party 37 years ago, and the Senate Judiciary Committee agreed that Ford would testify on Thursday. This represents a walkback for Chuck Grassley and makes one queasey at what else he may give away in order to propitiate the angry, hairy goddesses of #MeToo. The second item was that another person Ford had named as a witness, Leland Ingham Keyser, provided a statement...

    During his upcoming appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democrats are apparently going to interrogate Brett Kavanaugh about his drinking and partying in his high school years. (snip) Here’s what Hawaii Sen. Maize Hirono said on CNN’s “State of the Union”: “We want to hear — I would be wanting to hear what kind of environment it was in high school,” Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said Sunday during an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Apparently, there was a lot of drinking and partying going on,” she continued. “This is why we need an investigation. We need an independent...

    <p>This week, a new series of Project Veritas undercover videos was released. The videos show federal employees boasting that they are engaging in efforts to overthrow capitalism from within.</p> <p>In one of the videos, Stuart Karaffa, a Management and Program Analyst with the Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations within the Department of State, told the Veritas investigative reporter “our goal is to resist everything, to F*ck sh*t up at every level.” Karaffa bragged, “I spend most of my workday on Democratic Socialist activity. I compose all my emails during the day, but I carefully wait until after 5:30 pm to send them. That way I can argue that my political activity is done on my own time. Maybe I’ll get caught, but it’s impossible to fire federal employees.”</p>
