  1. What ever happened with this? I saw this story when it first broke but haven't seen anything since. Did they catch the guy? Why isn't this a big story?
  2. Trump is a deeply flawed man. I don't agree with everything he says and does. His past is certainly questionable in behavior. But he's using this moment to do the kind of good that so many "good men" that sat in that office never did. History will show him to be a truly great president.
  3. He's breaking the spells. I'm not a religious man but this is what a cultural revival looks like. Trump is breaking the Democrats in office. He's breaking the celebrity ####. He's breaking the media ####. People are waking up to the fact that a better country is possible.
  4. This is the only thing they can do. Sit on their hands. Refuse to attend "in protest." Storm out in "self-righteous" opposition. "Resist." This is all they have. They're losing and they can't do anything about it. America is winning.
  5. I'm sure it's all thanks to Obama. Everything good about the economy now is due to Obama. Everything bad about the economy during his eight years in office was due to Bush Jr. Same with Clinton and then Reagan. Rinse. Repeat.
  6. I appreciate the fact they're willing to come out and say the things namby-pamby liberals have been dancing around for decades. For fascists there's only one solution.
  7. This is the Party who wants everything under gov't control? Hard pass.
  8. Trump broke Pelosi. It's a beautiful thing.

  10. https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/rachel-maddows-reckoning/amp/ Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz issued his report earlier this month and concluded, “much of the material in the Steele election reports, including allegations about Donald Trump and members of the Trump campaign relied upon in the Carter Page FISA applications, could not be corroborated; that certain allegations were inaccurate or inconsistent with information gathered by the Crossfire Hurricane team; and that the limited information that was corroborated related to time, location and title information, much of which was publicly available.” The night Horowitz released his report, Maddow ignored that and emphasized other conclusions: “The inspector general debunks that there was any anti-Trump political bias motivating these decisions. They debunked the idea that the Christopher Steele dossier of opposition research against Trump was the basis for opening the FBI’s Russia investigation.” Wemple writes: “Asked to comment on how she approached the dossier, Maddow declined to provide an on-the-record response.” Like other prime-time cable news hosts who receive much more criticism, Maddow shows up every weeknight and tells a devoted audience, “the world is as you want it to be.” Trump is the worst, he’s committed many terrible crimes, a reckoning is coming, we will be vindicated. Her audience is not interested in hearing the host or guests declare: “While we are vehemently opposed to Trump, but there is no evidence he’s being blackmailed or controlled by the Russian government.” Her program includes bits of news and other substances that appear to be like news, but are not — fervent speculation, conjecture, assumptions, theories. If it is too harsh to call it “fake news,” then it is news with artificial flavors and sweeteners, designed to make it more exciting and appealing than it really is.

  13. You know the ones -- the liberal economists with overpriced Ivy League degrees who told us that if Donald Trump were to get elected president in 2016, the economy would crash. Fast-forward to today: More than $17 trillion in value has been added to the global stock market in 2019, with the U.S. reaping the biggest gains, according to a recent analysis by Deutsche Bank. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 and the Russell 2000 have all seen massive growth in the Trump economy -- more than 20% this year -- with American tech companies leading the pack. This is a sharp contrast to what a gamut of left-leaning "experts" predicted including The New York Times chief economist Paul Krugman, who told us after Trump won the 2016 election: "So we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened." Huh? Krugman ought to take a bite of this apple: One of the world's most valuable companies, Apple Inc., saw an 80% increase in its stock value in 2019. While Amazon announced a record holiday shopping season. Software giant Microsoft reaped a 55% increase this year, while Facebook soared 57% in value -- just to name a few U.S. companies whose employees and shareholders are enjoying a golden age of prosperity under the current administration. Same goes for all Americans who are benefitting from historically low unemployment -- including minorities and women -- and the jobs bonanza, which is lifting millions out of poverty and revitalizing the American dream. Under the current administration, we've seen a rate increase of 3.1% for wages year over year. Fox Business reported, "Average hourly earnings are $28.29 with a week of take-home pay averaging $973.18 compared to $943.59 in November 2018." That means labor workers and the middle class are benefitting -- not just the 1% -- like Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders falsely claim on the campaign trail. We've also seen the creation of 500,000 manufacturing jobs, new and better trade deals on the horizon with China, and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, the last of which is estimated to create 176,000 jobs and add $68.2 billion to the U.S. economy, according to a study by the U.S. International Trade Commission this year. If that's not enough winning for you, also consider the relentless surge in consumer optimism. Bloomberg's Consumer Confidence Index reported an increase to 62.3% in the week ending Dec. 22, up from 61.1%. "Record stock prices, unemployment at a five-decade low and steady wage gains continue to lift spirits, putting the 2019 average sentiment level on track for the best since the 1999-2000 dot-com boom," reported Bloomberg the day after Christmas. Translation: It's time to uncork the champagne and celebrate America's unrivaled prosperity. Needless to say, it's a good thing that the 63 million Americans who voted for Trump in the last presidential cycle didn't listen to the "experts" -- or the bottomless pit of naysayers in the media -- whose predictions about the economy and other topics proved worthless. After all, these are some of the same "experts" who told us Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election, Brexit wouldn't happen, and that Trump and his 2016 campaign colluded with Russia, a conspiracy theory that's since been debunked by multiple congressional and Department of Justice investigations including a 22-month special counsel probe that found no such evidence. Bottom line: With the 2020 election approaching, the American people should continue to trust their own instincts, pay stubs and 401(k)s, rather than the "experts." That's a far more reliable barometer, wouldn't you say?
  14. You Keep Holding on to Impeachment Papers and I’ll Keep Confirming Judges: https://www.redstate.com/sister-toldjah/2019/12/23/cocaine-mitch-flattens-pelosi-keep-holding-impeachment-papers-ill-keep-confirming-judges/ To date, the McConnell-led Senate has confirmed 174 judges out of the 234 nominated by President Trump, some of who were confirmed as Trump’s impeachment was being voted on in the House.
