DEMOCRATS TURN AGAINST ISRAEL

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

 

Finally, a few Democrats are starting to question their party’s turn to the Far Left’s ideology.   Nancy

Democrats Turn Against Israel

In 1972 ours was the first party to back moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Rep. Keith Ellison’s selection as deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee is the latest ratification of our party’s turn away from Israel. Mr. Ellison, who complained in 2010 that “United States foreign policy in the Middle East is governed by what is good or bad through a country of seven million people,” narrowly lost a bid for DNC chairman, then was chosen by acclamation as deputy.

The Democrats used to be the pro-Israel party. President Truman recognized the Jewish state within minutes of its independence in 1948. In 1972 the convention that nominated George McGovern ratified the first major-party platform to support moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. The Republicans didn’t follow until 1996.

A lot has changed for the Democrats in 45 years. President Obama created an atmosphere of outright hostility between the U.S. and Israel. He made a nuclear deal with Iran and refused to veto the United Nations Security Council resolution in December that condemned settlements in the disputed West Bank.

VIDEO PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON ON IMMIGRATION 1995

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

 

So many of you have shared  this C-span video of Bill Clinton  speaking on immigration from 1995.  How ironic that this is the same message being repeated by   President Trump yet you would think by the way the Left is reacting, that President Trump’s position is completely unacceptable.  
  PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON SPEAKING ON IMMIGRATION IN 1995.

I’M STAYING FAITHFUL TO TRUMP

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016
Democrats are using every possible way to change the outcome of this election.  They just can’t accept the fact that Americans across this country were fed up with liberals pushing Political Correctness, Global Warming, charges of racism against minorities, the inner cities falling apart with crime surging, sanctuary cities that protect those who are here illegally which flaunts disregard for  the rule of law,  the  loss of good paying jobs for the middle class, flat wages, skyrocketing health care costs,  their children being indoctrinated to leftist ideology in our educational system, instability around the world due to Islamic extremism, and the fact that Hillary represented corruption, lies,  and more of the same policies that they detested.    They’ve  had it  and they  are not going to take it anymore.   Nancy

I’m Staying Faithful to Trump

I’ve been harassed by thousands over my Electoral College vote.

This summer, the chairman of the Kansas Republican Party asked me to be one of the six electors who represent the state of Kansas in the Electoral College. I completely geeked out. Of the more than 137 million Americans who voted for president this year, only 538 are electors. While I jumped at the chance, I was not prepared for what would happen next.

I always knew Donald Trump would win Kansas, but like most people who follow politics closely, I didn’t expect him to win the Electoral College. I figured that Kansas would let me cast my vote for the also-ran—still a great honor. Then the unthinkable happened.

Election Night left me in awe. There were many reasons to be pleased. Those blue-collar, fly-over, working-class voters who showed up in droves and put Mr. Trump over the edge in several swing states? Those are my people. They weren’t motivated by hate or race. They were disappointed in the current administration and lack of economic progress. The assumptions about this group of voters by the media and ivory-tower elite only motivated them to victory.

CLINTON CAMPAIGN DEMANDS INTEL BRIEFINGS FOR ELECTORAL COLLEGE MEMBERS

Clinton campaign demands intel briefings for Electoral College members

Hillary Clinton‘s campaign has thrown its support behind an effort to provide members of the Electoral College with intelligence briefings on Russian breaches of U.S. political organizations before the College formally votes to elect Donald Trump president next week.

“The bipartisan electors’ letter raises very grave issues involving our national security. Electors have a solemn responsibility under the Constitution and we support their efforts to have their questions addressed,” Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta said Monday, responding to a request for briefings by a group of electors.

Podesta’s strongly worded statement signals a clear shift in strategy from Clinton and her team, who have until now shown no interest in questioning the legitimacy of last month’s election. And it could crack the door to further challenges or give succor to some Democrats’ long-shot hope that Trump’s election could be upended when the Electoral College convenes December 19.

A large trove of Podesta’s emails were released by WikiLeaks late in the campaign, and intelligence officials believe the emails were provided to the organization by the Russians.40 PHOTOS

Trump defeated Clinton in the general election by an electoral vote margin of 306-232.

Experts say electors’ ability to reverse the November 8 results remains virtually impossible, but mainstream Democrats have tried to create doubts about the outcome following news this weekend that the CIA formally concluded the Russian government worked covertly not just to disrupt the election, but to help Trump win. Four powerful senators — two Democrats, two Republicans — released a statement calling for a joint probe into Russia’s actions.

ELECTION THERAPY FROM MY BASKET OF DEPLORABLES

Monday, November 28th, 2016

 

THE NEW YORK TIMES

Election Therapy From My Basket of Deplorables

Maureen Dowd

During his interview with The New York Times on Tuesday, Donald Trump chided me twice for being too tough on him.

Sitting next to our publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., Trump invited everyone around the table to call him if they saw anything “where you feel that I’m wrong.”

“You can call me, Arthur can call me, I would love to hear,” he said. “The only one who can’t call me is Maureen. She treats me too rough.”

Then I had to go home for Thanksgiving and deal with my family scolding me about the media misreading the country. I went cold turkey to eat hot turkey: no therapy dog, no weaving therapy, no yoga, no acupuncture, no meditation, no cry-in.

The minute I saw my sister’s Trump champagne and a Cersei figurine as the centerpiece — my brother, Kevin, nicknamed Hillary “Cersei” during this year’s brutal game of thrones — I knew I wasn’t in a safe space.

My little basket of deplorables, as I call my conservative family, gloated with Trump toasts galore, and Kevin presented me with his annual holiday column with an extra flourish.

My colleague Paul Krugman tweeted Friday that “affluent, educated suburbanites” who voted for Trump are “fools.” What else is there to say, he asked.

Well, here is what Kevin, an affluent, educated suburbanite, has to say in his column, titled an “Election Therapy Guide for Liberals”:

Donald Trump pulled off one of the greatest political feats in modern history by defeating Hillary Clinton and the vaunted Clinton machine.

The election was a complete repudiation of Barack Obama: his fantasy world of political correctness, the politicization of the Justice Department and the I.R.S., an out-of-control E.P.A., his neutering of the military, his nonsupport of the police and his fixation on things like transgender bathrooms. Since he became president, his party has lost 63 House seats, 10 Senate seats and 14 governorships.

FUNDAMENTALIST ISLAM HAS DECLARED WAR ON THE WORLD

Sunday, November 20th, 2016

 

JUSTICE AMERICA

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:   The problem is worldwide and growing by the day. The thinking that defeating ISIS will resolve the issue is naive. ISIS Is merely the “flavor of the day.” Yesterday (and perhaps again tomorrow) it was al Qaeda. Before that, it was Islamic Jihad. The Muslim Brotherhood and its ally Hamas dates to the thirties and is stronger now than ever. Boko Haram in Africa and Abu Sayef in the Philipines remind us the problem is not restricted to any particular region. Fundamentalist Islam is a world power and it has declared war on the world.

There were many losers in the election. Hillary would seem to be the biggest but in the great scheme of things she is not. She may turn out to be a bit player, after all.

The Democrats and liberals, in general, were set back exponentially and now control less of the government than at any time since the 1920s or perhaps even in the history of their party founded in 1828. They lost not only the Presidency, The House, and the Senate but will soon see the Supreme Court transformed into a bastion of Constitutionalism for at least a generation to come. The GOP will hold governorships in 33 states, the most in nearly a century. Some are predicting the end of a liberalism that threatened the very nature of the Republic. It may take decades to realize the full impact of what has happened, but America has been put back on the “right” path after decades sliding into a moral and economic abyss.

The Media lost “bigly”, especially CNN and the New York Times as did many others who did all within their power to  ensure Trump never entered the White House. They are now hoping they will see the inside of the White House in days to come.

AMERICAN UPRISING

AMERICAN UPRISING

Everything is about to change.

by Daniel Greenfield     November 9, 2016

  

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

This wasn’t an election. It was a revolution.

It’s midnight in America. The day before fifty million Americans got up and stood in front of the great iron wheel that had been grinding them down. They stood there even though the media told them it was useless. They took their stand even while all the chattering classes laughed and taunted them.

They were fathers who couldn’t feed their families anymore. They were mothers who couldn’t afford health care. They were workers whose jobs had been sold off to foreign countries. They were sons who didn’t see a future for themselves. They were daughters afraid of being murdered by the “unaccompanied minors” flooding into their towns. They took a deep breath and they stood.

They held up their hands and the great iron wheel stopped.

The Great Blue Wall crumbled. The impossible states fell one by one. Ohio. Wisconsin. Pennsylvania. Iowa. The white working class that had been overlooked and trampled on for so long got to its feet. It rose up against its oppressors and the rest of the nation, from coast to coast, rose up with it.

TRUMP AND THE FORGOTTEN MAN

Trump and the Forgotten Man

The Republican’s victory was a blow for non-elites.

Troy Senik

November 10, 2016

Politics and law

 

 

The following commentary from Troy Senik (vice president of policy and programs at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research) contains a couple of what I thought to be poignant observations (highlighted).  

 

There was a moment during Tuesday’s election night coverage when, if you were consuming the right mix of cable news and Twitter feeds, you could watch the shock wave rolling in real time. Former Obama advisor Van Jones was near tears on CNN, as was Martha Raddatz on ABC. New York Times columnist Paul Krugman was, with characteristic restraint, decrying the “deep hatred in a large segment of the population.” When Ezra Klein, purveyor of the invariably supercilious “explainer” site Vox, began tweeting links to a story making the case against the Electoral College, you knew it was over.

For a sizable number of Donald Trump’s supporters, those moments may have been justification enough for their vote. After years of being sneered at, they got a front-row seat for a collective nervous breakdown radiating out through the Acela Corridor and the West Coast’s Highway 101. They got to hit the elites—a term that, though promiscuously applied, does identify a distinct cultural phylum—right in their (glass, it turns out) jaws.

Trump’s victory may well have completed the transformation of partisan politics into cultural proxy war—a transformation that, it bears noting, began well before he arrived on the political scene. As the pundits observed ad nauseam on election night, the America that voted for Trump lives, in large measure, at both a physical and social remove from the one that voted for Hillary Clinton. They failed, however, to note an important asymmetry that explains why progressive America was so thunderstruck as Tuesday night passed into Wednesday morning: the Trump parts of the country understand the Clinton parts much better than vice versa.
