So President Trump’s daughter Ivanka has decided that she’ll be taking up a new role as a government employee, unpaid, and in the role of “adviser.” That’s pretty much what her husband has done as well and it now appears Trump has surrounded himself with family and close friends as advisers. A bit of a “royal dynasty” you might say.
The thing that bothers me about this is that America is not a kingdom nor is the President a King yet what is being set up by Trump is beginning to appear that way. Another thing that bothers me is that Trump has now surrounded himself with inexperienced people in terms of foreign affairs and domestic affairs. There’s a difference between “draining the swamp” and being foolish. But there is something else troublesome as well.
Washington DC is a snake pit to say the least and I highly doubt Trump is going to “drain the swamp” to any significant degree. The problem is that these “swamp people” (read government employees and politicians) are well entrenched and have been for years and they are not going to just go away easily nor without a fight. That’s one reason these people, with their allies the MSM, keep trying to throw up Trump’s connections with the Russians. What they are hoping for is a good dose of American outrage….think Soviet Cold War days. But the Soviet Union no longer exists and this is not the days of the Cold War. But, you’ve got to give the “swamp people” credit as they keep pushing the “Russian connection” even though it doesn’t exist. Fake news? LOL whatever!
Don’t get me wrong. There ARE some good, descent, and honest people in government but they are few, frankly. Trump should be tapping these people as they have experience and would be solid advisers. And, besides, they know well the tricks of DC and might be able to help Trump avoid many pitfalls ahead. But, Trump I think has deemed any and all in government corrupt and part of the “swamp people” and THAT may be his undoing in the end. Continue reading
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones founder of infowars.com discredited himself and his “news” organization on his show last night. During the course of his show he repeatedly apologized for his role in the Pizzagate conspiracy theory which asserted that Hillary Clinton and her staff were involved in a child sex ring being ran out of a DC pizza shop. This Pizzagate conspiracy came about after Wikileaks released emails allegedly from John Podesta who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.
Last night Jones apologized to the pizza shop owner and long time listeners but not to Clinton or Podesta. Jones said he regretted comments he made about the FAKE NEWS and has since removed audio and video mentioning the FAKE NEWS from his website.
In December of last year a man entered the pizza shop in DC carrying a loaded assault weapon claiming he was “self investigating” the Pizza gate affair to see if it was true or not.
The MSM is reporting that it was not immediately clear why Jones chose to apologize to the Pizza shop owner and listeners last night but I suspect that reason is most likely a libel and slander lawsuit coming his way. In his closing comments Jones said he encourages his listeners to hold himself and his reporters/writers accountable as it makes them better. That may be put in my mind Alex Jones and infowars.com just COMPLETELY discredited itself! The show is also under scrutiny by the FBI it was revealed earlier this weak for possible links to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections.
President Trump signed a bill today making the human exploration of Mars part of NASA’s mission. One of the bills sponsors Senator Ted Cruz R-TX suggested Trump might want to send Congress to space in addition. Trump responded by saying, “What a great idea that would be.” And indeed it would!
For what we are paying these 535 people who mostly do NOTHING I think sending them to explore space might make them actually earn their paychecks. Oh but wait….Congress tends to have problems screwing things up so this might not be such a good idea. I mean, what if they encounter actual intelligent alien life? Likely they’d botch the first meeting up and that could result in Earth being attacked by UFOs. No, on second thought let’s not send Congress to explore space. Sorry 🙂
Liberty High School in Frisco, TX has a prayer room and has had that same prayer room since 2009. The room is available, according to school district officials, to “students of all walks of life” meaning it’s not just available to Christians, Muslims, Jews, or others but is available to ALL students of ANY faith OR no faith.
Since 2009 the prayer room has really not been an issue but now along comes Texas State Attorney General Ken Paxton and it appears he’s wanting to stir the pot! Paxton is “concerned” that the prayer room may not be available to students of other faiths and in a letter issued Friday by Paxton to school officials he said any exclusion would be inconsistent with the 1st Amendment’s protection of religious freedom. Question is he doesn’t identify just who is being excluded! Christians? Muslims? Jews? Buddhists? Wiccans? Who?
Thus far it appears that students of NONE of these faiths has been excluded from using the prayer room so why is Paxton attempting to create controversy where there is NO controversy?
The Pastor of a large Baptist Church in Dallas said in an interview with “Fox & Friends” this morning that he has no problem with the room as long as students of various faiths have equal access to the prayer room. Democratic political consultant Mustafa Tameez, a Muslim America, said on the same program that Paxton is simply attempting to create controversy where one doesn’t exist. He pointed out that in airports there are prayer rooms so the High School prayer room is not only for Muslim students but is for anyone of any faith. Continue reading
Since this past November some of the liberal left have succumbed to what appears to be nervous breakdowns. Basically, they’ve suffered from disbelief mixed with rage mixed with depression and hysteria. This, of course, is all a dangerous mixture and now there is a name for it. It’s being called “Trump Derangement Syndrome” or simply TDS.
We’ve seen many displays of this mental phenomena with the latest appearing yesterday on CNN (aka: Communist News Network). Their reporter/commentator Fareed Zakaria appeared on Don Lemon’s show and in speaking about President Trump Zakaria had a complete meltdown right in front of the cameras. And his meltdown was laced with a liberal usage of profanity as well. Host Don Lemon was speechless at Zakaria’s display as once again the world witnessed TDS in action. You’ll find the broadcast at the link below.
TDS is caused by the loss of Hillary Clinton in the last presidential election and the triumph of Donald Trump. The Leftists were so sure that Clinton would win the election that long before results were even announced they were proclaiming her the winner. But she didn’t get enough electoral votes and suddenly their certainty was dashed against the wall ruthlessly leading to numerous mental breakdowns by her supporters.
Surely, the Leftists thought, Clinton would succeed the well known Leftist Communist Barack Obama and certainly Clinton would finish the Communist takeover of America transforming it once and for all and redistributing that wealth that Commissar Obama often spoke of. But that didn’t happen and the meltdowns began.
So here we are in mid-March and the meltdowns continue as it seems apparent now that TDS is indeed an epidemic. Suddenly, the so beloved Communist Utopia is but a fantasy and the hard reality of American democracy has set in once again. For at least the past 50 plus years the Communist TRAITORS in our midst have carefully engineered their takeover of America and with the election of Obama two times they became very confident that their takeover was within reach. Then came Trump and suddenly all their plans were thrown into disarray.And so TDS began and became epidemic.
TDS is actually a REALITY CHECK as the past election proved once again the MAJORITY OF AMERICANS do NOT want Communism nor Leftism! It showed once again that the MAJORITY OF AMERICANS like our republic and democratic system and our CONSTITUTION just fine! And it shows that the MAJORITY of Americans do not anything to do with the Leftist Communist “utopia.” And THAT is what the Leftist just can’t handle as visions of sugar plums dance through their heads endlessly.
TDS can be a debilitating mental illness and there is no cure for it outside of abandoning ones Communist desires. The mental breakdowns and rage associated with this MENTAL ILLNESS is often accompanied by violent behavior so be warned. The more I see from the Left the more I believe Michael Savage’s assertion that “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.” Indeed for the Leftist it seems to be so.

It appears that Speaker Paul Ryan’s health insurance alternative to Obamacare will prey on some of our least powerful citizens, the disabled! And that is nothing short of OUTRAGEOUS and, frankly, IMO warrants Ryan being removed from Congress via recall by his constituents!
Rather than giving states block grants for Medicaid, Ryan wants to put a cap on everyone on Medicaid and once one reaches that cap I guess you get no more medical care. You know I cannot help but think that Ryan’s entire proposal is some kind of REALLY SICK JOKE! Ryan has now proved to me that not only is he a RINO but he is also a PREDATOR! He should not withdraw his proposal and resign from office in disgrace.
Not only would such a cap negatively affect the disabled but it would also be traumatic to children and the elderly. The Congressional Budget Office announced that 14 million Americans would lose healthcare under Ryan’s plan in 2018 and another 1 million would be forced to buy expensive health insurance. Ryan’s plan is NOT THE RIGHT PLAN! His is a plan that preys upon the disabled, children, the elderly, and the poor! I am astounded that Paul Ryan even submitted something like this. I thought he was a different kind of man. One who actually cares for the less fortunate in our society. I now see clearly HE IS NOT.

It appears that MSNBC has decided to intentionally violate federal law. Host Rachael Maddow announced that she has Trump’s 2005 federal tax return in her possession and she the proceeded to divulge details from the return on air. She also claimed that her possession of the return is not illegal and claimed the 1st Amendment. Ah, sorry Maddow but breaking federal law and not only possessing but exposing someone’s federal tax return has nothing to do with the 1st Amendment and everything to do with intentional violation of federal law worthy of a long prison sentence!
But Maddow is not alone in her criminal activity. She invited tax reporter David Johnston of the DC Report on her show as apparently he is the one who obtained the tax return but then he says he simply received it in an email. So it appears we have 3 criminals operating in this case and the DOJ and IRS need to immediately investigate and prosecute these people. It’s time to jerk their chains and let them know that they, the MSM, are NOT the little gods they think they are nor are they above the law!!
The White House simply responded that in tax year 2005 the President did indeed pay $38 million in taxes on $150 million income. Johnston also claimed on the program that Trump has done business with a drug king pin and mobsters and said these actions justify the release of the President’s return so that the American people can know more about Trumps financial dealings. Ah….sorry Johnston but your “justification” doesn’t excuse the CRIME you just committed with Maddow on national television!
The White House statement said, “You know you are desperate for ratings when you are WILLING TO VIOLATE THE LAW and push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago. It is totally ILLEGAL to STEAL AND PUBLISH tax returns. The dishonest media can continue to make this part of their agenda while the President will focus on his, which includes tax reform that will benefit all Americans.”
NOW is the time to start bringing these little MSM gods and goddesses to justice! You’d think that someone at MSNBC would know that their rights END just as soon as they step on someone else’s rights and that is exactly what they did tonight!!
