  • Another 'narrative' falling apart: Trump surges 19 points in poll with...Latinos

    American Thinker ^ | January 18, 2019 | Monica Showalter
    PBS thought it had a good one: a poll showing the public opposed to the government shutdown and disapproving of President Trump. It was a poll like all of PBS's other polls, negative to Trump, and a clear attempt to influence the "narrative" repeated by most of the Beltway press and its talking heads. Dreary, dreary, it might have run and gone without mention. ...except that Mediaite went deep into the weeds of reading the actual poll line by line and found something eye-popping: Shock Poll: Trump Gains 19 Points with Latino Voters During Border Wall Shutdown That's the headline;...

    What can you say about a week that began with stacks of fast-food cheeseburgers in the White House and ended with Trump putting Nancy Pelosi on the no-fly list? I’d say it means Season 3 of The Trump Show is going to be lit. It’s only January. By summer, as the Democratic 2020 presidential field fills out, it is likely that liberals will be on the verge of clinical insanity. Trump is clearly Inspector Clouseau to the Democrats’ Chief Inspector Dreyfus. Just wait until Trump hears about Gillette razors. He’ll probably give his away to Jim Acosta.
  • President Trump’s ‘Xanatos Gambit’ Government Shutdown

    Chicago Boyz ^ | Jan 19 2019 | Trent Telenko
    Welcome to day twenty eight day of the U.S. Federal government shutdown. Normally “Federal Government shut downs” are a game of “chicken” where Congressional (usually GOP) and Executive Branch (usually Democrat) politicians are playing a game of virtue signaling to their political base until the accumulated toxic waste of bad media and public protest let the Congress “compromise” on spending more money with limited blow back in their next partisan primary. This time is very different, and it’s far more than just a matter of political parties changing sides in government. President Trump is working to a “Xanatos Gambit” political-media...

    On 18 January, 2019, during the March for Life in Washington, D.C., another much smaller event was also scheduled. It was the first Indigenous Peoples March.  The video at the link shows there may have been a couple of hundred at the march, compared to many thousands at the 46th March for Life. Nathan Phillips, an Oklahoma elder and Native American activist, was drumming and chanting during the two events. He moved away from his group and approached a group of pro-life teenagers, some of who were wearing MAGA hats. The video can be seen below. Phillips gets right...

    Activist Mommy ^ | January 16, 2019 | Activist Mommy
    The 5-year-old stepson of a British woman who lives as a man, with the child’s mother, is now “transitioning” to a girl, the couple has revealed. They also complain that they’ve suffered “insults” at the hands of people online and their neighbors, and they’ve also been reported to social services. What, exactly, these insults are was not specified in an article covering the couple on Heart. They’re adamant, however, that they’re not responsible for the child’s gender confusion and that the “transition” is what’s best:

    Man, you gotta hand it to the news fakers over at the fake news site Buzzfeed (even its name screams out “fake news!”, doesn’t it?) . After all, how many news outlets can brag that they have out-faked CNN and the New York Times when it comes to reporting about President Donald Trump? After Thursday and Friday, when it first fake-reported a story – based solely on “anonymous sources” of course – claiming that then-Candidate Donald Trump ordered his crooked ex-attorney Michael Cohen to lie to the Special Counsel’s investigators about a planned real estate development in Moscow, and then...

    [PHOTO Sean Connery, “Bond...James Bond.] I “DISCOVERED” JAMES BOND, for myself, At 17. I walked in off the street, sat down unknowing, and was immersed in a glorious Modern Myth that was James Bond in DR. NO. At last, a new mythology for the newly born Space Age. An indestructible mythic warrior for right and good. A high-tech Everyman who would train, learn, strive and somehow always overcome the odds against him. A Universal Hero and Winner for the time. At that time, 1962, the musical score and production of DR. NO were overwhelming. Sean Connery was slim, light, and...

    When I raised my right hand and swore my Oath to honor, respect, preserve, and protect the Constitution of the United States, I considered it a sacred and lifelong vow. Without the rule of law we are nothing, and have no future beyond the plans that the one(s) with the most money and power have for us. I, and many others who have sworn the same Oath, are/were willing to give anything and everything to honor our pledge. But now, it seems to be little more than a perfunctory photo-op for far too many Washington elite. And why should they...

    Was Pelosi planning on undermining President Trump abroad for the next coming Democrat sabotage? Inquiring minds would sure like to know. The image of haughty House Speaker Nancy Pelosi left fuming on the tarmac after President Donald Trump ‘postponed’ her flight to Afghanistan, Belgium and Egypt provides a kind of levity that millions have been longing for. ‘Her Supreme Highness of the Flying Junket’ has been grounded until after the Government Partial Shutdown by President Donald Trump, the man she lives to hate. Like the proverbial deer caught in the headlights, everyone now knows that Pelosi has spent the lion’s...

And God will pay us back for what we do.” (Proverbs 24:11-12—Contemporary English Version) Since 1973 when two women, prompted (some might say, used) by their activist radical women’s rights attorneys, challenged laws prohibiting abortions and won, more than 50 million unborn and nearly born babies have been killed. That is nearly 15% of the current population of the United States. Fifty million babies...

    American Greatness ^ | 16 Jan 2019 | Michael Walsh
    In the annals of American political showboating, it’s tough to top the annual circus called the State of the Union message. Mandated by the Constitution—and at first delivered to Congress in written form—it has metastasized since the Wilson Administration into a full-blown political rally, celebrating not the party in power, but the president of the United States personally. Once a year, at the invitation of the Speaker of the House, he commands the attention not only of the Congress, but also members of the Supreme Court. It’s the nearest thing we have to a monarchical moment: all pomp and damn...

    Red State ^ | January 18, 2019 | Brandon Morse
    Listen, if you’re Nancy Pelosi it makes a lot of sense. Nancy Pelosi is terrified, number one, of her extreme left-wing base; she is captive of that; and number two, the position of Congressional Democrats in this shutdown is objectively unreasonable. In 2013, Chuck Schumer and every Senate Democrat voted in favor of 350 miles of border wall. They have right now shut the government down to stop 234 miles of border wall. I don’t know how you explain that you voted in favor of 350 miles but you shut the government down to stop 234 miles. That is incoherent....

    Government Shutdown, Day…um, what day is it? 28? 29? This fake, partial, sort of “shutdown” of parts of a quarter of the federal government has now dragged on so long it’s become impossible to keep up anymore. But oh, what a glorious fake government shutdown it became on Thursday. That day, January 17, 2019, will be remembered into posterity as the date when this became, without any doubt at all, the greatest, most entertaining government shutdown in the history of all government shutdowns. Just a day after Speaker San Fran Nan sent over a petty and utterly dishonest letter to...

    A clinical trial called “Ambrosia” seeks to discover the long-sought Fountain of Youth – and some scientists believe they’ve found it in the blood of young people. Unlike most clinical trials, people actually paid to participate instead of the other way around. Patients over the age of 35 ponied up $8000 to take part in the experiment where they get transfusions of young blood, run by Dr. Jesse Karmazin. People are getting transfusions of “young blood” to slow aging. Unsurprisingly, the business “experiment” is taking place in Monterrey, California, right on the edge of Silicon Valley. . . . And...

    The saga over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health seems to ebb and flow from the headlines almost daily. Part of the mystery relates to the amount of information shared with the public. We know that, while treating Ginsburg for rib fractures, doctors found malignant lesions in her lungs that were promptly removed, and that subsequent tests have shown no evidence of any other cancer. Ginsburg has since missed oral arguments and is reportedly recovering at home while keeping current with the court’s business through reading briefs and written transcripts of oral arguments. Any major health scare for Ginsburg at 85...

    Could it be that the once phalanx-like imperturbability of an iron-clad Democrat Party is broken? Have “the newer crew” of Leftists already smashed through some sort of Stolid Democrat Line, in a flanking charge? It looks that way. “...newly elected radicals have shown their hand - they want to Impeach Trump, crimes or not. The Older Democrats are trying to hold them down and prevent such action from being taken. On all fronts Pelosi and Schumer are trying to hold the party together, stamp out fires that keep popping up and rein the radical - and moderate - newbies in.”...

    Those of us who have closely followed the unfolding scandal at the Justice Department— particularly how the FBI abused its power not only to spy on the Trump presidential campaign but also on the president himself—have been frustrated with the inaction both of the White House and Congress. Documents have not been declassified as promised; letters by top lawmakers have gone unanswered with no consequence; and not one perpetrator in the biggest political scandal in history has been held accountable. The New York Times over the weekend confirmed the worst suspicions: Andrew McCabe, a disgraced FBI official caught lying to...
