  • Vanity - Is anyone tracking the Trump March to winning the POTUS for history?

    09/23/2016 8:47:29 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 3 replies
    Is anyone out there in American history documentary land tracking and taping the Trump march to victory of being elected POTUS over Hillary Clinton. This magnificent event in history in the making as Donald Trump not only marches into the history books of all time, in not only defeating Hilllary Clinton, but destroying the legacy of failed POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama, and wiping out both the Republican & Democrat Establishment political parties in these United States of America. A sea change is afoot across this great land.....African-Americans, and, all minority Americans, if they are wise will support DJT and, henceforth...

    Make no mistake about it: Donald Trump’s trip to Mexico was a resounding success. After weeks of scrutiny over his credentials for higher office, his moral standing — even his sanity — Trump needed to restore some sense of legitimacy and strength to his flailing campaign. What better way to do so than to stand, statesman-like, next to the president of Mexico? Trump played the role to perfection. Subdued and even solemn, he owned the proceedings. Trump chose when and how he wanted to visit Mexico, a country he has insulted and maligned for more than a year. He established...

    Don’t tell them theirs is the Forgotten War. “I sure as hell haven’t forgotten it,” said Jean White, a retired Marine lieutenant colonel from Oceanside who fought in the Korean War 66 years ago and was at its most-storied battle, Chosin Reservoir, where outnumbered and surrounded U.S. troops fought their way out of a snowy death trap. White’s feet froze. Now he has to wrap them in something warm at night to sleep, a constant reminder of “where we were and what we did.” What they did is so revered it’s taught in the Marines’ officer candidates school, right alongside...

    Yeshua specifically promised us that "In this world you will have trouble" (John 16:33). The question is not whether we will experience difficulties, but what how we respond when we find ourselves in a pickle. Habakkuk was a man in a tight spot. His book is one of angst and woe, desperately seeking God's help in times of trouble. But after outlining all the desperate straits that he and his countrymen are in, he ends on an extremely interesting and unusual note. The last verse says this: "God, the Lord, is my strength, and He makes my feet like hinds'...

    A federal appeals court has thrown out a $1.8 million judgment awarded to former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, who says he was defamed in the late author Chris Kyle's bestselling book "American Sniper." The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday rejected the jury's 2014 award of $500,000 for defamation and $1.3 million for unjust enrichment against Kyle's estate. The court reversed the unjust-enrichment award, saying it fails as a matter of law. It also vacated the defamation award, but ordered a new trial for that portion of the case. Kyle, a Navy SEAL and the deadliest sniper in...

    Donald Trump's opponents are increasingly targeting him in a slew of TV attack ads that throw shade on his business ventures and conservative credentials and draw attention to some of his un-presidential qualities on the campaign trail - like his use of the f-bomb. In large part, that is unsurprising. Mr. Trump is the front-runner heading into the South Carolina primary on Feb. 20 and the ads are ratcheting up the pressure - aimed at dislodging the billionaire real estate tycoon from the top of voter survey polls. Another wealthy Republican candidate faced a similar barrage of TV attacks four...

    To many of those who tuned in, Donald Trump’s three-minute remarks after finishing second in the Iowa caucuses appeared remarkably humble. He even congratulated Ted Cruz, whom Trump had called almost every name in the book in the days before. Clearly, Trump’s strategy of attacking his rival’s character didn’t work. But Cruz’s strategy of attacking Trump on his views apparently did.

    Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses hands were heavy; and they took...

    Ted Cruz has assembled an impressive presidential campaign structure in Iowa, veteran political observers here say, with one going so far as to describe Cruz’s campaign as perhaps "the most sophisticated" the first in the nation caucus state has ever witnessed. Because of that grass roots organization, Cruz is primed to maintain his recent surge in the polls and win the Iowa Republican caucuses in five weeks, those observers say. Cruz, the Tea Party firebrand and first term U.S. Sen. from Texas, was the first Republican candidate to enter the presidential race, on March 23. Nine months later, he has...

Instead, it’s the defense minister of Iran who flies into Baghdad, an unsubtle demonstration of who’s in charge — while the U.S. air campaign proves futile and America’s alleged strategy for combating the Islamic State is in freefall. It gets worse.

In St. Paul, it was celebrated with a prayer service at the Municipal Auditorium attended by 6,000 people.

But she still insisted on sticking with her premise, asking Cruz if he even wants the independent vote. Cruz responded that of course he wants independents.

Titled “Blessing,” the commercial is aimed directly at evangelical and social conservative voters in early voting states, timed for Easter weekend and slated to air during popular Christian-themed programming.

    Barak Seener of RUSI says Israel 'should have gone in harder,' must reclassify human shields as combatants and stop aborting airstrikes. ---------------------- Barak Seener, an Associate fellow at Britain's Royal United Services Institute for Defense and Security Studies, thinks Israel is “choosing not to win” the war in Gaza.

    In a victory for religious freedom, the Supreme Court ruled today 5-4 in favor of Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp. in the case Burwell v. Hobby Lobby (formerly named Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby). The case was the strongest legal challenge to Obamacare since 2012. Justice Alito authored the majority opinion, and Justice Kennedy wrote a concurring opinion.
  • Bad sign: Cantor’s vanquisher surprised MSNBC host isn’t just celebrating his victory

    And while tea party groups and talk radio hosts are celebrating the downfall of a Republican member of Congress who came to symbolize the “establishment,” there are indications that this enthusiasm is misplaced. In the wake of his victory, Brat joined MSNBC host Chuck Todd on Wednesday where he received a gentle grilling and was asked for his position on a variety of policy matters. Brat seemed entirely unprepared to have to speak on issues of substance. In fact, he suggested – perhaps (hopefully) jokingly – that he thought Todd invited him on the program merely to celebrate his victory....

    Chapter 36 – Russia, North Africa, Italy, “D” Day Victory in the battle of Britain saved the country from invasion, but the enemy sought to recompense himself by heavier, indiscriminate night-bombing, which continued into 1941. The next prayer was greater still. We suppose nothing gave the world a bigger shock through the whole course of the war than when, without a word of warning, Hitler swung round and invaded Russia. God now began to turn the prayers of the College into yet another direction. With the Nazis marching through Yugoslavia and Greece and capturing Crete, and with the menace of...

    We must never forget the names Bold, Sword, Juno, Omaha, Utah, and Point du Hoc where the Allies and men of the American Army’s 1st, 4th, and 29th Infantry Divisions hit the beach — and the 2nd Rangers scaled the heights. The stories of heroism will echo for eternity and they must be told to ensure those brave 9,000 — who would never again walk among the living — are not forgotten. We must never allow the legacy of Operation Overlord to be forgotten. And so here are the mottos of the American units of that famed day: 1st Infantry...

    An Obama administration official has floated the idea that Bowe Bergdahl was justified in deserting his platoon in Afghanistan and joining the Taliban over disagreements with the platoon's leadership. Brandon Friedman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs for the Department of Housing and Urban Development posted a series of tweets Wednesday evening in which he speculated that Bergdahl deserted over bad leadership of his platoon and that is why his fellow soldiers were smearing him."Here's the thing about Bergdahl and the Jump-to-Conclusions mats: What if his platoon was long on psychopaths and short on leadership? (1/5)"" What if he grew...
