    This looks like an interesting piece of evidence when discussing the wildfires...Or so called wild fires all over the State of California. Basically all you have to do is search a California wildfires map in the last year or so and put the map of the proposed California high speed rail system continually being pushed by the far left government of California. What do you get when placing these images next to each other...Well it just so happens that the California wildfires happen to be all located along the proposed lines of the California high speed rail project.
  • Why ‘Hillary Clinton 2020’ would be doomed to fail the Democrats

    Speculation is mounting over whether Hillary Clinton will launch a bid for the White House in 2020. In a recent op-ed, her former long-term adviser Mark Penn claimed “Hillary will run again” at the next federal US election. “This new version of Mrs Clinton, when she runs for president in 2020, will come full circle — back to the universal-health-care-promoting progressive firebrand of 1994,” he wrote in The Wall Street Journal. “True to her name, Mrs Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies. She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way...

    DC Clothesline ^ | 11/14/2018 | JD heyes
    When those on the far-Left bash POTUS Donald Trump as a “racist” for his calls to build a border wall and end so-called “sanctuary cities,” they are doing so in part as a means of distracting us from the myriad of criminal acts committed by illegals who have been released into society by Democratic policies. Just like their claims that there is no such thing as “voter fraud” are lies, so too are their claims that illegal immigrants don’t commit heinous criminal acts and those sanctuary city policies always benefit us. Take the case of Luis Rodrigo Perez, an illegal...

    Illinois Review ^ | November 14, 2018 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    As tempers flare in Washington this November, with the dust settling on late-night midterm results and vote fraud occurs in broad daylight… we see an unusual dispute in the news. This kerfuffle is between a major news source – CNN – and the White House. CNN’s reporter, Jim Acosta, refused to shut his mouth when his time was expired, and even shoved an intern out of the way for just doing her job. The White House had it with him, and revoked his press credentials - not CNN’s, just his. The reporter made more of the story than it was,...

    Yesterday an entire California town burned down. Paridise, CA has (had) 27,000 residents and over 1,000 buildings, and now it’s pretty much gone. A fire started nearby on a windy day and within hours everything was ash and cinders. That fire and several others are still expanding across the state, threatening tens of thousands of homes. The sets of the TV show WestWorld are gone. Malibu has been evacuated. And dry, windy conditions persist, so the story is nowhere near over. If this sounds familiar, it’s because massive, sometimes uncontrollable California wildfires are now an annual occurrence, due in part...

    29-year-old Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will be sworn in as a member of Congress come January 2019. She recently said that she couldn’t afford to land an apartment in Washington DC until her Congressional paycheck kicked in. “I have three months without a salary before I’m a member of Congress. So, how do I get an apartment? Those little things are very real.” She lied.

    The third attempt to form a government in Sweden since September's General Election failed by a 195-154 vote. The leader of the Moderate Party, leading party of the "Right" bloc, Ulf Kristersson proposed a government led by the Moderates and the Christian Democrats. In the end only the Sweden Democrats joined those two parties in support of his government with the "Left" bloc against and the two other "Right" bloc parties, the Center and Liberal parties, voting against the government. Now back to square one with perhaps the Social Democrats or the Center Party getting a shot a trying to...

    President Trump on Wednesday expressed hope the White House would defeat CNN in a lawsuit over his decision to suspend the press credentials of reporter Jim Acosta, whom he called “bad for the country.” In an interview with The Daily Caller, Trump railed against Acosta, calling him a “rude” person whose “grandstanding” is unfair to the broader White House press corps. “I really think that when you have guys like Acosta, I think they’re bad for the country,” Trump told the conservative website. “He’s just an average guy who’s a grandstander who’s got the guts to stand up and shout.”...

    Back in the summer, it seemed that the Republican/conservative vision for higher education reform was building momentum. A House GOP bill called the PROSPER Act was on the verge of moving toward passage and education secretary Betsy DeVos was implementing regulatory changes meant to undo some Obama-era policies such as the “Gainful Employment” rule and aggressive Title IX mandates. Then, the landscape of higher education policy was dramatically changed in the 2018 midterm elections with the House of Representatives going to the Democrats. Politicians with a completely different approach to higher ed will now have a loud voice. The Republican/conservative...

    The practice of parents with similarly aged children meeting up for play dates is in the cross hairs of the DC bureaucracy. State Superintendent of Education Hanseul Kang has charged that these informal arrangements "are an illegal intrusion on turf reserved for my department. There are public institutions targeting young children and their development. Every hour wasted at some play group run by unqualified parents is an hour that could have been spent in a program run by professionals. It doesn't matter that the play dates are voluntary or that participation seemingly hurts no one. We will levy fines or...

    Bloody Shovel ^ | 14 November, 2018 | Spandrell
    Of course liberal politics kept being a mess. No cohesion in a ruling class which has no good incentive to stick to each other. But of course the incentive is still out there. A cohesive ruling class can monopolize power and extract rents from the whole society forever. The ghost of Lenin is always there. And so the arrow of history kept bending in Lenin’s direction. The West started to build up a Leninist power structure. Not overtly, not as a conscious plan. It just worked that way because the incentives were out there for everyone to see, and so...

    Anyone who has been alive since September 11, 2001, has to understand what is going on here in the United States. Americans have been duped again and again about the affairs in this country. Americans have been inundated for 17 years by the mainstream media by labeling Muslims as the “terrorists” who were responsible for 9/11, only to find that it is the US representatives, governors, mayors, etc. of this country who have targeted Americans as the “terrorists.” Now, they are openly alluring (legal or not) these same Muslims into America while handing over the country to those who we...

    At least he can bathe himself and get hygiene products, but Greg Burleson is banned from getting extra food through his commissary privilege and his mattress has been taken away for three months, he is banned from having visitors and making phone calls for eight months. His personal items were taken away from him. Burleson was convicted in the first rigged Bunkervile Standoff trial last year and sentenced to 68 years and three months in prison. Evidence proving his innocence uncovered in the third trial of key defendants including Bundy family members led to dismissal of those charges because of...

    I know from experience that laws are hard to pass -- and they're just as hard to change. That's by design. Laws are meant to provide some stability from one administration to the next. But apparently, someone needs to share that insight to the new governor of Kansas, Laura Kelly (D). The state's next chief executive didn't waste any time letting locals know that their democratically-passed adoption law would be the first thing she'll scrap. Forty-eight hours after her win, the administration seems to have a new motto: upholding the law is optional.Kelly, who must have graduated from Barack Obama's...

    The Olive Branch Report ^ | 11/13/2018 | S. Noble
    When news came out that Nelson and Gillum’s lawyers argued for non-citizen votes to be counted, both campaigns claimed ignorance. No one took responsibility for the appointment of the lawyer or for his actions. Hillary’s lawyer, Marc Elias, who is spearheading the opposition, denied giving the lawyer the authority to argue for illegal alien votes to count. Marc Elias, a lawyer for Nelson, told TheDCNF: “The lawyer who was present was not someone we had authorized to make such an objection. Non-citizens cannot vote in U.S. elections.” As it happens, when the judge rejected the requests to count the non-citizen...

    It has finally happened, a member of the elitist press has filed a lawsuit against the Trump White House. CNN and their chief antagonist Jim Acosta have filed a lawsuit against the Trump White House because Trump dared to remove the press credentials of Jim Acosta for his blatant disrespect and discourtesy towards Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the president, and the rest of the White House press pool. Take a look: Acosta is an ill-mannered lout who does not deserve to be in the White House press pool. “Let the man ask a question,” is the refrain heard “round the world,”...
