In a WH meeting today with Congressional leaders of both parties President Trump expressed his support for hiking the federal gasoline tax by .25 cents per gallon. Presently, the federal gas tax is 18.4 cents per gallon and 24.4 cents per gallon for diesel fuel. The money will be used to repair the nation’s infrastructure according to sources. The current federal tax on fuel has not been increased since 1993. Trump surprised many on both sides of the aisle by expressing support for the hike during today’s meeting.
Trump wants $200 billion in taxpayer money to stimulate a $1.5 trillion dollar infrastructure repair program over 10 years that will fix bridges, roads, and highways. The costs would eventually be transferred to the states and cities. Democrats insist any infrastructure plan MUST include new revenue! Well of course they do!
Congress has already transferred almost $140 billion to the Highway Trust Fund since 2008. To maintain current spending levels Congress would have to approve an additional $107 billion from 2021 through 2026. The US Chamber of Congress also supports a hike in the federal fuel tax by 25 cents per gallon! They say that such an increase would raise $394 billion over the next 10 years to pay for infrastructure repairs. This talk of increasing the federal gas tax comes on the heals of Trumps tax cuts! Surprised? You shouldn’t be! This president is going to bust the backs of the working poor…AGAIN as most past Republican POTUS have done! The Trump tax cuts are intended mostly for his buddies on Wall Street while the people on Main Street AGAIN are thrown mere table crumbs. Oh and btw you can count on states and cities hiking their gas taxes too!
Here’s what I think! Congress and the federal government has repeatedly demonstrated that they cannot manage the taxpayer money they already have and now they want more? I don’t think so! I suggest Congress and the government (at all levels) begin showing the American taxpayer they can manage the money they already have and then we’ll discuss a gas tax hike! And here’s something else in terms of “new revenue” for the dim Dems………. How about we STOP paying countries to be our friends? We can save ZILLIONS in foreign aid that would be more than enough for us to fix our infrastructure! We keep giving these two-bit nations US taxpayer money but they are most certainly NOT our friends! They are simply playing us for the foreign aid while consorting with our ENEMIES!! Time to put a stop to it! Continue Reading
So the FISA memo has now been declassified and is public info thanks to the Republican on the House Intelligence Committee who thought that We The People have a right to know the levels of corruption involved by the DOJ and FBI concerning the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency. How sweet and righteous of them!
US Rep Devin Nunes R-CA
The memo makes several allegations including one that the FBI even though they knew about the Russian/Steele Dosier didn’t bother to inform the FISA court when they sought a warrant so they could conduct surveillance on the Trump campaign during the last presidential election. A dosier, by the way, paid for by the Clinton Foundation via the DNC and Fusion GPS corporation. There was a high level of DRAMA and SUSPENSE prior to the release of the memo just like you see in the movies and don’t think for a minute that the Dems weren’t a part of that because they were as they publicly squealed about the inaccuracies of the memo and the allegations contained therein. Oh it was a SHOW! The latest episode in “As Congress Screws the American People” which, by the way, is a rather popular ongoing SHOW now.
So after all of the DRAMA and SUSPENSE complete with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi demanding Rep Devin Nunes resign as chairman of the committee we now find out that Nunes who was the author of the memo DID NOT even view the underlying intelligence on which he based the 4 page memo! WTF??? He admitted such yesterday after the memo was declassified by Trump and released to the public during an interview with Fox News! His admission confirms assertions by the Dems on the committee namely Rep Adam Schiff who alleged that Nunes was NOT forthcoming in the process involved in producing the now famous memo! So the DEMS were RIGHT!!
Why would you NOT view the underlying intelligence in such an important matter involving possible corruption, conspiracy, and treason by the US Dept of Justice and the FBI? Nunes admitted to Fox News that he wrote the memo with help from other Republicans including House Oversight Committee chairman Rep Trey Gowdy. When asked by FOX host Bret Baier if he (Nunes) read the actual FISA application Nunes answered NO. Yet, Nunes went on to defend release of the memo saying, “I’m sad that we had to get to this point.” Well BOO-WOO! But wait! He had more to say!! Continue Reading
According to former DNC interim Chairwoman Donna Brazile the nomination of Hillary Clinton as the democratic nominee for POTUS was RIGGED! It appears the Clinton crime machine moved in and took over the DNC by establishing control over the party’s finances which were made bankrupt by Barack Obama.
Bernie Sanders never had a chance at the nomination IMO after reading the below editorial on Politico by Brazile. Brazile followed the money trail and found a lot of surprises along they way which, although not illegal, is certainly UNETHICAL.
Read the article and discover just what a complete SHAM our two party system is and discover just how REALLY corrupt out “public servants” really are! Of course I’m sure the DNC is not alone as I’m sure the RNC has done their fair share of unethical things too. The people in DC are all corrupt and our government no longer represents WE THE PEOPLE. That is no BEYOND CLEAR!
Read Brazile’s revelations at:
He’s only been in the Crap House for 9 months but it seems like he’s been there for at least 4 years already. Yes, I’m talking about our esteemed President Donald J. Trump and I don’t know about you but to me and many others he’s already a full-fledged nightmare that everyone is wishing would just go away. Trump and his administration are a bit like living in the “Twilight Zone.” For starters it should now be clear to everyone that Trump has problems working with people. In fact, it appears he can’t work with people because he seems to have an attitude of “my way or no way.” That attitude might work in the greed ridden halls of business but it doesn’t work when you are the leader of a country or in any other high political office. Politics is an art and, specifically, it is an art of COMPROMISE. The Democrats showed during 8 years of the Obama regime that they didn’t understand that little basic reality of politics and now the Republicans are showing that they don’t get it either! And as for Trump? The man doesn’t even know the meaning of the world “compromise” I assure you.
Trump is now going to bed with the Democrats because he can’t get anything done with his own party, the GOP, and that would be because of his attitude of “my way or no way.” Like I said, Trump has problems working with other people. Right off the bat he offended the GOP leadership in both the Senate and House to the point that all they wanted was to do anything and everything they could to screw him over and they’ve done just that for the past 9 months. That’s why Trump’s agenda has gone nowhere! So now he’s hopped in bed with the Democrats to get Obamacare axed and he’s going after GOP congressmen and senators who don’t support the latest version of “repeal and replace.” Case in point….Trump is now going after Rand Paul for not supporting the latest version to screw the working poor out of affordable healthcare.
No one should be surprised by Trump’s actions (or lack thereof) over the past 9 months because he’s simply doing what he’s done for decades in the business world. That is….Screwing people over! That’s the way he’s gotten to where he is via his real estate business and investments, screwing people over, and he’s made a lot of enemies along the way who have not forgotten how they were screwed by him. Trump is just continuing his typical M. O. A number of his FORMER supporters, I saw a few days ago, burned their “MAGA” hats in a bonfire already because they are so frustrated and disappointed with him. LOL guess they now realize just how Trump played them like a fiddle for the naive people they are. But, again, get used to it because that is what Trump has done in the business world for decades now and in the near future he will continue to screw over his supporters IF and when he deems it to HIS advantage. This man, this president, has no loyalty to anyone but himself, period! Continue Reading
I ask this again. Is there no end to the anger and insanity of the leftists? I thought the revelations about CNN contriving the Trump-Russian affair settled the matter but now the NYT has come out with an attack on Donald Trump Jr over his meeting with a Russian lawyer ALLEGEDLY connected to the Kremlin even though that lawyer has come out and said she is NOT connected to the Kremlin nor did she represent Moscow! Despite all their ongoing efforts to come up with or contrive DIRT on President Trump it is beginning to appear he’s squeaky clean. So instead of dropping the issue the Leftists and their MSM are going after his son Donald Jr. Why don’t they just give up? They lost the 2016 election! It’s o-v-e-r!! Hillary LOST and even if Trump leaves office at any point she is NOT going to become POTUS so get over it already!!
One thing many of us have seen clearly over the course of the past year and especially over the past 6 months is just how DIVIDED America is thanks to 8 years under that “Great Divider” known as Barack Hussein Obama, Barry Soreto, and various other aliases. He did a great job at dividing America along racial, economic, political, and ever other line he possibly could and he’s not finished yet because he’s out there again on the political trail from what I understand. I’m sure his hero the late Saul Alinsky would be proud of him. Alinsky? Yeah you know the lunatic who wrote “Rules for Radicals” and dedicated it to Lucifer in the opening pages! Continue Reading
Donald Trump has now been in office as POTUS for almost 3 months and I keep waiting for him to take the initiative and be POTUS. But, instead what we have gotten is episode after episode of Trump blaming Obama. Case in point, his most recent blame on Obama is that it is Obama’s fault for the chemical attacks in Syria this week. Geez and I thought it was the fault of Assad or ISIS! Go figure………….
Anything and everything is the fault of the POTUS before me! Seriously????
I can’t help but notice just about all Trump has done since assuming office is to void Obama’s executive orders one after the other. Is this all he plans to do as POTUS for the next 4 years? I see him spending his time “undoing” what Obama did but I’m seeing nothing original on his part as current POTUS. He’s NOT governing! He’s playing the “blame game.” Somehow I don’t think this is why people voted for him or maybe they did.
Honestly, Trump needs to get off his ass and high horse and start acting like a dignified POTUS with some class and stop playing the blame game and do HIS thing! Enough of blaming Obama already! Enough of voiding Obama’s EO’s already! Enough of the talk about how he (Trump) has a great plan! LET’S SEE IT!! 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.

Deep State! Shadow Government! The stuff of “conspiracy theorists”! Well, turns out the Deep State is VERY real my friends and it is now working overtime to undermine the President at every turn.
The subject came up again this week during a WH press conference. Press Secretary Sean Spicer said, “I don’t think it should come as any surprise there are people that burrowed into government.” This was Spicer’s response when a reporter asked him if he thought the deep state was real.
What is being called the “deep state” is a group of government employees that are still loyal to Obama and his agenda. Spicer added, “I think that there’s no question when you have eight years of one party in office, there are people who stay in government and continue to espouse the agenda of the previous administration.” Spicer also said these people are still trying to pursue Obama’s agenda and this too is no surprise. Spicer also cautioned that it is NOT part of the CIA mandate to identify these people and weed them out.
Undercutting one’s boss is normally considered insubordination and in government it could even be considered sedition or treason. No the CIA is not mandated to weed these people out but the FBI and DOJ are if they are committing crimes such as sedition! And, frankly, I think many of them are doing just that!
I also do not think the Deep State is simply a handful of rogues. Obama’s “solution” to the lack of jobs was to expand government and, thus, create more government jobs. Trump wants to cut big government and of course this agenda puts all those Obama hirees at risk of losing their jobs. So these people are doing anything they can to justify their jobs and keep their jobs in government. However, there is also another element in this mix and that is those people serving in various government positions who have been in such positions for decades now and their mission is to destroy and weaken the US. And these Leftist traitors are doing just that. They’ve chipped away at the log piece by piece and their hope was the Leftist Hillary Clinton would win the presidency and after 16 years of Obama and Clinton their “mission” would be accomplished. These in particular are the people who need to be identified, and brought to justice by the FBI and DOJ no matter what positions they old or what government department they serve in. Continue Reading
US Representative Mike Kelly R-PA today alleged that former POTUS Barack Obama stayed in Washington DC to run a shadow government aimed at undermining current POTUS Donald Trump! Recall that originally Obama and his clan planned to retire in Hawaii, then Chicago, and then DC. Recently Obama moved former Chief Adviser Valerie Jarrett into his DC residence for some odd reason and now we appear to know why. Is Obama playing the role of shadow POTUS? A sort of “Anti-pope” role?
Obama said that he was going to stay in DC until his daughter graduates. Kelly speaking about Obama said he is only in DC for one reason and that is to undercut Trump’s agenda every way he can. So what’s new? Obama has spent the past 8 years undercutting America any way he can. He’s a natural born subversive! Continue Reading
One would think that ths would be a major story and headliner in the MSM but it is barely getting a mention if that!
Robby Mook who was Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager appeared on Fox & Friends yesterday and admitted that he knew about the wiretaps. This admission strengthens President Trump’s accusations that his campaign was a victim of wiretapping.
Mook said on the program that Trump aides were caught talking to Russian agents and those conversations were captured because US intel agencies routinely tap the phone lines of those Russian agents. Mook says those agents were wiretapped at the time of the conversations and that those Russian agents “were communicating with Trump’s staff.” Mook added, “That’s what the intelligence community has told us.” Excuse me? “That’s what the intelligence community” was telling the Clinton campaign? Why were they informing the Clinton Campaign of surveillance captured on the Trump campaign?
Fox & Friends noted that on October 31, 2016 Hillary Clinton wrote on Twitter and linked to a media report that attempted to connect a server in Trump Tower to a Russian bank. Why did she link to that article? The US intelligence community was giving her info she could use against Trump and I suspect is illegal. There needs to be an official investigation into this and the MSM needs to start reporting on it.
It appears from Mook’s statements that there WAS indeed a conspiracy against Trump by the Clinton Campaign aided by the intelligence community!
