    My decision to be a Democrat was never a decision. It was just expected of me. It was understood. Born into a family of Democrats, my grandfather would often spend weekends talking to me about his respect for Franklin Roosevelt and his annoyance with President Reagan. I listened and absorbed, but was not yet ready to think critically about what I was told – or to decide for myself. [snip] My parents have since turned their back on me, my wife, their grandchildren, and their extended family. Adding to this, they decided to make the maximum contribution to my Democrat...

    The San Francisco Chronicle ^ | July 15, 2018 | Michelle Ye Hee Lee and Anu Narayanswamy, The Washington Post
    With the 2018 midterms under way, President Donald Trump's reelection campaign and two affiliated committees entered the third quarter with a massive fundraising haul of $90 million and a steep decline in attorneys fees, which have consumed his reelection expenses since he took office. Trump's campaign committee and two fundraising committees that jointly raise money with the Republican National Committee - Trump Victory and the Trump Make America Great Again Committee - together raised $17.7 million in the second quarter, for a total of about $90 million in the 2018 cycle, according to Federal Election Committee records filed Sunday evening....

    Look forget the tons of condemning words, This clown, incompetent, Assistant Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein and his cohort dancing partner, Robert Mueller have gone too far. As they both struggle to cover their butts and get themselves unraveled from the multi-million dollar farce they looted from the USA is time for the Republicans in the House of Representatives to impeach this raving buffoon, Rod Rosenstein. Mueller, I do not care about him...he has sunk himself into the Obama acid swamp of failed public servants. Now, Mr. Rosenstein and Mr. Mueller, as an American Taxpayer, who has been fleeced thus...

    The Pew ^ | October 24, 2017 | None given
    Nearly a year after Donald Trump was elected president, the Republican coalition is deeply divided on such major issues as immigration, America’s role in the world and the fundamental fairness of the U.S. economic system. The Democratic coalition is largely united in staunch opposition to President Trump. Yet, while Trump’s election has triggered a wave of political activism within the party’s sizable liberal bloc, the liberals’ sky-high political energy is not nearly as evident among other segments in the Democratic base. And Democrats also are internally divided over U.S. global involvement, as well as some religious and social issues.

    Democrats hold a massive voter lead in states that require party registration, a gap of 12 million that could be key to whether the party takes control of the House and Senate in the fall midterm congressional elections, according to a new analysis. Overall, 40 percent of voters in 31 party registration states are Democrats, 29 percent are Republicans, and 28 percent are independents, according to a new report of July numbers from the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. The states include several with key battles over House seats such as California, New York, Florida, and Pennsylvania. The lead...

    The liberal media doesn’t just reside on a different planet from the rest of us. They’re out in a separate solar system. Nay, a foreign galaxy. If not an altogether alternate universe. On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski described Peter Strzok as a “patriot . . . who loves America” and a “victim” of Republicans. Mika: “So we had this patriot, articulating beautifully what was driving him throughout this process . . . Anybody who watched that . . . and all you could really hear was a man who loves America,, who made mistakes, who is now being abused...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/30/2018 | By Thomas O'Malley
    For the past several years, political pundits on both sides of the aisle have been predicting a future with a permanent Democratic majority in the United States. As evidence, they point to increasing immigration of races that consistently vote over two to one for Democrats, and to the fact that young people overwhelmingly lean left. Republicans have won the popular vote only once in the past seven presidential elections, and Texas, the jewel in the Republican crown, is forecast to go blue in a decade or two because of its growing Hispanic population. These predictions have led to jubilation among...

    No need to ask twice. Done and done.The second-best line from this morning’s “View” panel about Kennedy’s retirement, per Newsbusters, came from an exasperated Joy Behar: “Yeah. Let’s have everybody a Republican. The Supreme Court, the Congress, the presidency! What is that called? Dictatorship I believe!” Indeed. The kind of dictatorship in which the dictator can’t repeal ObamaCare or even get a purely symbolic piece of immigration legislation through the House because they’re pitifully inept morons.Also the kind of “dictatorship” which, per Behar’s definition, Democrats have enjoyed within her own lifetime. Remember the 60s, Joy?Whoopi’s abortion rant is next-level,...

    Facebook blocked more people from seeing posts about 4th of July fireworks in Greece, N.Y. Why? Politics and Russia. Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich says he was trying to inform as many people as possible about the free 4th of July events in the town. When he boosted the posts, he says Facebook blocked them because Facebook said they were political. Reilich posted the events on his official supervisor Facebook page where he is listed as a "government official." When he tried to pay Facebook $90 to boost the posts, so more people could see them, he says Facebook said...

    Get the hook! Joe Scarborough needs to find a new shtick. His routine of endlessly repeating a given word to make his point is wearing–very–thin. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough’s word ‘o the day was “unhinged.” Have a look at my YouTube mash-up. By my count, Scarborough used “unhinged” 21 times during the opening segment to denounce House Republicans and President Trump.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • 31% Think U.S. Civil War Likely Soon

    06/27/2018 1:45:58 PM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 107 replies
    Most voters fear that political violence is coming from opponents of the president’s policies, just as they did in the second year of Barack Obama’s presidency, and nearly one-in-three think a civil war is next. Thirty-one percent (31%) of Likely U.S. Voters say it’s likely that the United States will experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years, with 11% who say it’s Very Likely. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 59% consider a second civil war unlikely, but that includes only 29% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see...

    National Review ^ | 06/26/2018 | Dan Mclaughlin
    George WillÂ’s Friday column has kicked up a stir by arguing that voters of all ideological stripes should hand majority control of the Senate and House to the Democrats in November. This is a profoundly bad idea, and Will makes nearly no effort to consider its actual consequences.There are four main reasons why running Republicans out of Congress will not produce the results that Will is seeking. One, Democrats do not respect the values Will champions and cannot be counted on to advance them. Two, the recent history of divided government shows that it moves policy toward the out-partyÂ’s ideology...

    What's as risk in the upcoming 2018 election? According to San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi, nothing less than "civilization as we know it." Talking to Rolling Stone reporter Tom Dickenson, Pelosi sounds the warning: Pelosi is charting the strategic course of the 2018 election, raising millions of dollars and boosting the recruits who would plug into a political machine she's honed for nearly 15 years. The stakes could not be higher: "Civilization as we know it is at risk in this election," Pelosi says. "We have to win." But as she sits in an Iowa pub on a warm Sunday...

    "No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way" We know that David Lynch isn't one for convention and received wisdom, but declaring that Donald Trump “could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history” is up there with recasting David Bowie’s part from Fire Walk With Me to a kettle in the ‘oh, mate’ stakes. Speaking to the Guardian, Lynch said: "[Trump] could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much. No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way." Lynch...

An unhinged Democrat mob then threatened the female DHS Secretary at her home. Democrats booted White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family from a Little Liberal Red Hen restaurant. On Saturday Democrats harassed and heckled Florida AG Pam Bondi and chased her from a movie theater.Maxine Waters wants more of this. During her MSNBC interview on Saturday Democrat mouthpiece Maxine Waters called on supporters to “harass” and “resist” Trump officials out in public. This is the modern day Democrat party.

    Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said Senators should stand up to President Donald Trump by not approving any more judges until they get votes on things like tariffs. Flakes said, “I can tell you Republicans need to stand up on issues like tariffs. Facing us right now — we’re at the nascent stages of a full-scale trade war that the president seems to want to escalate. It all stems from the steel and aluminum tariffs. Congress needs to stand up and say, ‘No, we’re not going to do that.’ You can’t use section 232 to claim...
