    A caller just mentioned George W. Bush making a comment on the present political situation in a negative fashion against President Trump AND in defense of the media!!! He is a TRAITOR along with McCain, Graham and other Republicans who are corrupt, bought-off and leading this nation over the edge of the cliff. The caller made an excellent point the Bush had nothing to say about Obama's wrecking ball on the nation. The elites are all on the special lifeboat while the Titana-US is sinking after hitting the immigrationliberalleftistpro-immorality iceberg.

    Last year the Academy, liberal to the CORE, was attacked with "Oscars so White"...a pathetic excuse for people with no life to get worked up.... The call for affirmative action on the voters, etc. in Hollyweird was heard. Changes were promised. So THIS year, a director's first movie, about a black homosexual, WINS. Look, maybe it WAS the Best Picture of all last year. Maybe. But could this be the effect of Hollywood's Guilty Feelings from last year?

After the #FakeNews is shown to be bogus they matter-of-factly say "We're so sorry" about the error but they know the damage has been done and the lie has been seen by as many people as possible. A lie that many will believe.

And Is it worth the WH holding a weekly presser to detail every fake news report aired by the media? This would serve a couple purposes. It would would continue to erode the credibility of the media AND it would sow doubt to the point they wouldn't know what story to run with.

    So GNC is down to 9.15 a share, it was up to 60.18 in Nov 2013. Last years high was at 34.58 in April, but has since slid into almost penny stock territory. I understand that they are having trouble from theom;ine sales and all, but they are also running a Super Bowl add to help. I guess even if the Super Bowl add helps temporarily it may be a smart move to buy at 9.15 to make a quick profit from the response they get off the add. Anyone agree? By the way you all want a tip?

    The downside of the 2016 Trump victory is this: For four -- and possibly eight -- years, we will have to endure the daily distortions, perversions, and misrepresentations of absolutely anything Donald Trump says. Case in point: President Trump, in his Inaugural address, said that from now on we will put America first. The left immediately jumped on this one phrase, noting that it was used by Charles Lindberg and isolationists in World War II who wanted us not to enter the war. Thus, they extrapolate, Trump is an anti-Semite who loves Hitler and wants to be a Nazi. Let...
