Stranger Than Fiction News goes over the latest news on Julian Assange. He was found unresponsive! They’re killing him in prison most likely by poison! No other reason he would be unresponsive unless they’re poisoning his food or water.
And Trump who said over and over again, “I Love Wikileaks” is a No Show in supporting him when he needs it most! I’m very disappointed in Trump over Wikileaks and abandoning Julian Assange.
This is another reason why Americans are going to have to hit the streets before we ever get our freedom again. We’re going to need our own yellow vest movement and unite against the Federal Reserve slavery system, endless wars and all the other NWO evil it seems.
I support President Trump and would never vote against him but I am not happy about how he’s treated Assange! Without Wikileaks Trump would most likely not have won since we got the truth about Hillary, Podesta and the other satanic democrats.
I won’t cheer on Trump when I see him do dumb things like going after Assange, banning bump stocks, try to start a war with Iran. Tell Trump every time he does something dumb or foolish. Patriots must make our voices heard when our leaders do dumb things! Nobody gets a free ride! Open the Video
Americans should turn its attention away from total activism to adaptation. Soon our communities will be overrun with paramilitary forces that have been embedded for the moment that is fast approaching. The plan to take down America consists of three parts:
Massive domestic insurgency designed to cripple America's ability to respond to what is coming.
A classic Red Dawn invasion
World War III
Outline of the Series of “When 1776 Meets 1941”
This series will be divided up into the following parts:
Introduction along with a retrospective look what America will look like when our defeat is final. The casualty reports and destruction of our economy has already been determined.
The 1776 Revolutionary Forces Committed to the Destruction of America's Culture and Constitutional Republic. The coming removal of Trump from office is only the beginning of this domestic nightmare. (Part A) (Part B)
The "1941" calamity that awaits our military. After reading this part, you will never let your sons and daughters serve in the military, it is have been set up to be slaughtered.
The aftermath of defeat. This part will examine life in the post-war, and post-revolution defeat of America.
Who Are America’s Enemies?
The invasion of our southern border by MS-13, Saudis, Somalis, ISIS and the drug cartels would not be possible if it were not for the explicit cooperation of members of Congress. In particular, but not exclusively, the Democratic Party is in support of every perversion and terrorist activity in on America’s southern border with Mexico. These crimes include, but are not limited to, child-sex-trafficking, illegal gun running, rampant drug trafficking, importation of various types of terrorists and drug cartel members, each with a particular role to play with regard to the takedown of the United States.
Who are these people? Where do they come from? For the most part, they are the Democrats. This is the party that removed God from its Democratic Party platform. They embrace the practice of murdering babies as they exit the womb, they are for totally open borders regardless of the interlopers are terrorists, drug cartel members of an advance guard of the coming Red Dawn invasion, they are in support of overturning the Constitution and installing a communist socialist utopia, they dupe LGBT and people of color with false promises of support, they support organized crime at the border, many of their leadership do business with our enemies, they actively work with the cartels, they are in league with the Communist Chinese in places like Chinatown, and they have contributed to the breakdown of law and order in favor of the Chinese government controlled Sinoloa drug cartels in places like Humboldt County, CA. They are actively in support of disarming America, the abolition of due process, the legalization of drugs, the legalization of pedophilia and every other form of perversion including beastaiity and any other lifestyle choice that honors Satan.
The most notable victory for the Communists began with the election of Obama.
The Communists Openly Declare Victory Upon Obama’s Election
Frank Chapman, a communist activist and a member of the communist front group known as the World Peace Council. Chapman clearly used the term “mole” to describe Obama. He said Obama’s political climb and subsequent success in the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries was “a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle.” Chapman further stated that, “Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary ‘mole,’ not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through. The Communist Party USA backs Obama to the hilt.” It is clear that Obama is their man!
How does a man get elected President after serving less than one full term as a U.S. Senator? Does being a community activist/antagonist qualify one for the highest office in the land? Were the Soviet defectors correct in that Obama is the manifestation of a multi-generational plot to bring America to her knees? It is easy to comprehend how and why Putin would want to destroy America. But is Obama is his accomplice in this mission which could imperil all of us? Former FBI Weatherman Task Force supervisor, Max Noel, noted that the FBI utilized a CARL test when it conducted background checks on various suspects. The acronym CARL stands for Character, Associates, Reputation, and Loyalty is used to assess candidates fitness to hold the highest office in the country. On each of these four points of power, Obama fails and fails miserably. Like many FBI law enforcement agents and officials, Noel was alarmed by the fact that someone like Barack Obama could capture the presidency. For some unexplained reason, Obama was never vetted before he became a candidate for the presidency by the FBI. This is an unacceptable result of our national security system and is wholly suggestive of internal plot to allow the installation of a blatantly communist advocate into the highest political position in America. The election of Obama solidified the communist takeover of America. Communist takeover?
America, how many coincidences can you buy, until you see the conspiracy unfolding right before your eyes? Muslims comprise less than 1% of the American population. However, they occupy a disproportionate number of key appointed governmental positions. If you have not read my previous account of how the terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood had overrun the Obama White House.
muslim bros in the whitehouse
Our leaders bend over to kiss the backside extremities of the leaders of nation states that fund terrorism.
Maybe you never heard of Trevor Loudon’s work, Enemies Within. Louden identified 80 Democratic Congressional Representatives and Senators who are either members of front groups for the American Communist Party or the Muslim Brotherhood, or both. The Muslim Brotherhood is the largest terrorist group in the world. And who started the Muslim Brotherhood? None other than the Nazis. And today, they are alive and well and operating within the Democratic Party. (Democratic Party) Enemies Within: The Rebirth of the Nazi Party In the US
“You see the Nazi platform from the early 1930s … look at it compared to the (Democratic Party) platform of today, you’re saying, ‘Man, those things are awfully similar.'”
— Donald Trump Jr. on Wednesday, August 1st, 2018 in an interview with One America News Network
The Democratic Party has engaged in high treason against the people of the United States. The following video clearly illustrates this principle. Open the Video
The infiltration of our government is not limited to the DHS. The Democratic Party is infested with treasonous Congressional Representatives and Senators. Here is a prime example of the omnipresent treason that resides within the Democratic Party.
Alexandra Daley and myself have completely documented the Nazi-style corruption of Kamala Harris when she was serving as the Alameda County (CA) District Attorney followed by her corrupt actions when she served as the Attorney General of California. Her crimes included but were not limited to Catholic Church pedophilia and trafficking of children, cartel drug dealers and Communist Chinese advocates which have infiltrated such places as Chinatown (eg Rose Pak). Now, this corrupt and treasonous politician is a Presidential candidate. For that matter, California’s other Senator, Dianne Feinstein, has been proven to have had Communist Chinese ties through her driver for 20 years, who was busted as a Communist Chinese spy. Also, Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum, has strong business dealings with the Communist Chinese interests and government. Actions Speak Louder Than Words
When one takes an macro-view of the Democratic Party leadership, this is what we can surmise.
The Democrats are completely dedicated to the dissolution of America's borders and the ultimate financial demise of the American economy through the sheer weight of millions of illegal immigrants. This will manifest itself in the collapse of public school budgets, the financial destruction of hospitals who are required to treat illegal aliens free of charge, an their continued affiliations with people like the Communist Chinese government and subversive foreign operatives like George Soros who is on the record as saying he will break the United States.
Through their fervent support of the dissolution of America's borders, the Democrats are, at best, de facto supporters of the drug cartels and their child-sex-trafficking, gun running, human labor bondage and drug running.
The Democrats support the destruction of the 1st Amendment through their attacks upon the Christian religion and their support of social media that is practicing extreme censorship of America's fastest growing conservative news outlet centers. Through mostly George Soros organizations, the mere act of expressing ones political belief by wearing MAGA clothing can get one physically attacked. These same groups (eg Antifa) will physically attack Americans for their Christian and conservative views.
The Democratic Party's disdain for the 2nd Amendment is omnipresent. History shows that gun confiscation always precedes genocide. By the way, Hillary made FEMA camp type of comments in the 2016 Presidential campaign. If America ever experiences concentration camp type of activity, a Democrat will be President.
The Democrats are the party of depopulation. They support abortion to the point where they advocate murdering a baby as it exists the womb. In places like Portland the Democrats support the murder of the severely ill, the mentally ill and in some cases, the elderly.
The Democrats are engaged in Rules for Radicals activities. Their Democratic activist judges frequently rule against the Constitution in their rulings. The Democrats have no respect for either the Constitution of the rule of law.
The Democratic Party is practicing reverse "Jim Crow" policies with their support of decidedly anti-white, anti-male and anti-Christian agenda. The support radical ideas as reparations for slavery even thought there would no fair way to implement such an idea. The LGBT has done a good job of defending the Constitutional rights of its members and lifestyle. However, many Democrats are pushing the rights for pedophiles upon this group This will hurt the political rights gains made by LGBT advocates.
America needs immigrants given its 1.7 birth rate which cannot sustain our society. However, as has been pointed out earlier in this article, the Democrats have weaponized immigration and made it into a destructive force.
The Democrats continually show their disdain for the American culture. They embrace every perverse sexual practice in existence. They refuse to condemn pedophilia. Mark my words, the mainstream of the Democratic Party, following the 2020 election, will be pushing for the legalization of sex with children and animals as we are already beginning to see it through the typical "normalization" phase. Many of these beliefs are being expressed by liberal, Democratic college professors as they trial balloon these ideas through outrageous public statements.
The Democrats actively support any religion, including Satanism, except the Christian faith.
I could go on and on, however, one can clearly see we are witnessing the hybrid Democratic Party which has combined traditional Nazi ideals with communist underpinnings. These affiliations get expressed through its membership aligning with Muslim Brotherhood interests (ie the Nazis) and Communist Party interests (ie Communist Chinese affiliations). The next part in this series will explore how the Soviet defectors told us what would happen with a domestic Communist Party takeover of America.
In a major court ruling, presided over by an Obama appointed judge, President Trump has been ordered to surrender his business records for the last 10 years. Here is the analysis of the ruling and its implications by the CSS. Open the Video
Quietly, it seems, President Donald Trump reversed the usurper Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah’s policies, which enabled illegal aliens to work far easier in America. The return of “no match” letters appear to be part of the administration’s Buy American, Hire American policies.
The Social Security Administration has revived an old practice of notifying employers of mismatches between information on tax forms and the agency’s records.
Starting in March, the SSA began sending employer correction request notices, also known as “no-match letters,” to employers with at least one employee whose name and Social Security number combination on a filed W-2 doesn’t match SSA records. The letters instruct employers to register for the agency’s Business Services Online and correct the mismatch within 60 days
Some 575,000 employers already have received letters.
The return of no-match letters, which haven’t been sent to employers for more than a decade, already is stirring controversy among advocacy groups and some Democratic lawmakers. The move is viewed as another Trump administration policy targeting immigrants, sparking concerns that companies could fire employees pre-emptively, fearing that they might lack work authorization.
While some like Rep. Jesus “Chuy” Garcia (D-IL) refer to this as scare tactics, one has to question what the problem actually is? If Social Security numbers don’t match names, shouldn’t that be a red flag that not only do you have an illegal alien using it, but that a true American’s identity might have been stolen? Of course!
Of course, Democrats are protesting this!
The Hill reported on their efforts:
The no-match letters, Democrats argue, are being instituted as part of the Trump administration's crackdown on immigration as a measure of outing to employers undocumented immigrants working with false or stolen SSNs.
The agency has defended the practice of using the letters in the past, telling NPR in late March that it was focused on improving the accuracy of its record.
"If we cannot match the name and SSN reported on a W-2 to our records, we cannot credit earnings to a worker's record," spokesman Mark Hinkle said in a statement at the time. "When earnings are missing, the worker may not qualify for Social Security benefits he or she is due or the benefit amount may be incorrect."
At least 46 Democrats signed a letter that was sent to acting Social Security Administration Commissioner Nancy Berryhill earlier this month urging her to retract that orders she was given.
“This action will cause numerous problems by diverting resources away from frontline workers whose primary mission is administering benefits,” the Democrats wrote of the Employer Correction Request Notices. “Additionally, this rule can result in increased discrimination and abuses against U.S. workers, particularly women.”
Berry was also sent another letter signed by 146 labor and immigration organizations that claims that such letters are ineffective, endanger citizens and labor rights and could overwhelm the SSA’s resources.
“Other than to instill fear and to add to the series of attacks that have come down against the immigrant community — whether it’s the Census question, whether it’s the public charge initiative against lawful permanent residents — this is one more tool in their arsenal, I think, to drive the community into the shadows of society, to create more anti-immigrant sentiment in the country and just to create fear and instability in communities with large immigrant populations,” said Rep. Jesús García (D-Ill.), the lead signatory of the Democratic letter.
OK, look, I don’t care for the Social Security Administration anymore than I do the IRS, and I don’t doubt there will be some hangups concerning errant letters, but are these people seriously arguing against these measures when, again, not only could we be talking about illegal aliens but identity theft of Americans?
“You should not use this letter to take any adverse action against an employee, such as laying off, suspending, firing or discriminating against that individual, just because his or her SSN or name does not match our records,” according to a sample “no-match” letter
The Democrats have become a cult of anti-personality.
The ‘anti’ phenomenon is not unique. Past Democrat generations had built their identity around hating Goldwater, Nixon, and Reagan. But the internet monetized the cult of anti-personality in a big way.
And Democrats are paying the price.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Dem House leadership have tried everything possible to stop the talk of impeachment. But nothing that she and her deputies can do has made a dent in the madness. take our poll – story continues below
Who are the happiest people?
In a sign of pure desperation, Pelosi has begun insisting that impeachment is a Trump conspiracy.
“Trump is goading us to impeach him,” she actually claimed.
The Dem House leader is hoping to dissuade her faction from its self-destructive orgy of Trump hatred by tapping into that hatred to convince them that impeaching Trump is exactly what he wants.
And it won’t work.
Impeaching Trump is the obsession of a narrow slice of the Dem base. But it’s the one that provides much of the money and the manpower. The Democrats wouldn’t have won in 2018 without the Trump-haters, but they won’t be able to win in 2020 with them. Their fanaticism proved crucial in midterm elections where Democrats traditionally suffered from low voter turnout. But in a presidential election, voter turnout will be high. And the Democrats will need to win over independent voters.
A majority of Americans opposes impeachment. But impeachment fever turned otherwise obscure Dem politicians like Rep. Maxine Waters, Red. Ted Lieu and Rep. Adam Schiff into resistance celebrities.
While Pelosi worries about losing moderate districts, the loudest impeachment activists can’t lose.
Most of the House impeachment noise has been coming from Congressional Black Caucus, California and New York House members who are safely ensconced in districts that Republicans can’t win. The more noise they make, the more they can fundraise, build their brand and get invited on MSNBC.
They don’t risk losing their seats through a challenge from the right, but from the left.
Joe Crowley’s defeat at the hands of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was a warning. Alienating Democrats or infuriating Republicans poses no risk to Democrats in safe districts. They’re worried about another prog coming out of the woodwork and impeachment is their shield against a challenger.
While Pelosi wants to hold on to her speakership by getting and keeping House Dems in swing states, the impeachment caucus is only out for the interests of its members. Before internet fundraising, political grandstanding wasn’t nearly as profitable. But Trump and the internet have changed all that.
Rep. Adam Schiff’s fundraising take went from below a million in 2016 to $6.25 million in 2018. Rep. Eric Swalwell’s finances ballooned from $1.9 million in 2016 to over $3 million in 2018. Swalwell became so confident that he even decided to run for president. Rep. Sheila Lee Jackson had her best fundraising totals since the Bush era. Rep. Maxine Waters went from raising $729,000 in 2012 to $1.59 million.
With numbers like these, why stop?
Talking about impeaching Trump provides the old Democrats in safe districts with a cash flow and protection against usurpers backed by the Democratic Socialists of America. Even if it hurts their party.
The House impeachment activism also reflects the split within the Democrat electorate.
At April’s end, an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll showed that 42% of adults wanted an end to the investigation. Another 33% wanted more congressional hearings.
Only 16% were ready for impeachment.
Among Democrats, only 27% were ready for impeachment. Impeachment fever was highest among “progressives”. 30% of Democrat women wanted impeachment, but only 23% of men. Support for impeaching Trump was highest in the big cities that are home to the resistance and lowest in rural areas.
(Contrary to Pelosi’s exercise in reverse psychology, only 1% of Trump supporters wanted Democrats to start impeachment proceedings.)
Support for impeachment was highest in the West.
If you want to understand why California politicians like Rep. Maxine Waters, Rep. Ted Lieu and Rep. Adam Schiff are all over the news networks talking impeachment, these numbers show why.
In the 2018 exit polls, support for impeachment was highest in California followed by New York. That’s also where much of the money that swung the midterm elections came from. California donors bought elections and special elections for Democrats in red and purple states in impeachment’s name.
But the rest of the country isn’t California or New York.
Impeachment was a con. Democrats solicited fortunes from bicoastal donors while promising them something that they knew they couldn’t and wouldn’t deliver. It’s a familiar con in politics. There’s just one problem. Pelosi, Schumer and the Dem leadership need the donors they’ve conned to keep giving.
The Democrats have been caught on the hook of their own con.
Their money is telling them one thing while their electorate is telling them another. The media desperately needs an impeachment push to goose their ratings. Impeachment is the only thing that would lift CNN’s ratings out of the toilet. And if the Democrats won’t give the media what it wants, the same outlets that profited from the Mueller witch hunt will go after Pelosi for standing in their way.
The Democrats can have the money and the media, or win elections. But they can’t have all three.
That’s why Speaker Pelosi is finding new convoluted reasons to avoid an impeachment push. The crazy lies are an effort to string along donors and media outlets until the election, without alienating the independent voters that her faction needs to win, in order to defeat Trump and the Republicans.
And that will take the impeachment question off the table and validate her strategy.
But if Trump is reelected, then Pelosi will fall. The Democrats are playing it safe by backing Biden and avoiding impeachment. But if Biden becomes the nominee and loses, lefties will claim that the election was lost because the Democrat leadership chose to play it safe instead of going radical.
Trump’s reelection will crack open the con and wipe out a faded generation of Democrat leadership.
That’s why Pelosi has made this her final rodeo. If her bet pays off, she retires after taking a victory lap. If it fails, she leaves in disgrace to sip chardonnay with Hillary Clinton and blame the Russians.
But even making it to 2020 will require keeping the lid on a furious donor class and unruly House.
Speaker Pelosi has failed to control either the freshman radicals like Rep. Ocasio Cortez and Rep. Tlaib or the rest of her California delegation which won’t stop playing the impeachment card.
The Mueller report took more pressure off Pelosi than it did Trump. In its aftermath, she’s trying to channel Dem activity into endless hearings, which are always a safe bet in Washington D.C., and into going after Trump officials whose persecution won’t alienate independents or rile up Republicans.
But it won’t be enough.
The Democrats have become a party of hate. The haters have poured money and manpower into a moribund party. It’s their party now and they will settle for nothing less than destroying Trump.
Sen. Lindsey Graham reveals new immigration bill as Feds arrest dozens over alleged immigration scam
Scam offered fake marriages for $70K; Border Patrol Foundation president Ronald Colburn weighs in.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Wednesday unveiled a bill that would end asylum claims from Central America at the border and return unaccompanied minors to their home countries — a targeted effort to tackle the escalating migration crisis.
“This is a nightmare for smugglers,” Graham said. “This is a godsend to stop the humanitarian disaster.”
Graham’s bill is designed specifically to deal with loopholes he says are encouraging migrants from Central America to make the treacherous journey north and bring children with them. He pointed in particular to the 20-day limit for authorities to hold unaccompanied minors and families before having to release them into the U.S. homeland.
“The word is out on the street in Central America if you bring a minor child with you, your chance of being deported goes to almost zero, your hearing date is years away and we release you inside the country and that’s the goal of coming,” he said.
The bill would end asylum claims at the U.S. border for migrants from the Northern Triangle of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. Instead, those applications would be filed at refugee processing centers set up in the Northern Triangle and Mexico. The legislation would also allow unaccompanied minors to be returned to their country of origin, which Graham said would be treating them the same as minors from Canada and Mexico.
His bill would extend the time families can be held together from 20 days to 100 days to help allow claims to be filed without families being released into the U.S. It would also add an additional 500 immigration judges to deal with the backlog of asylum claims.
Until these loopholes are dealt with, Graham said, other border security measures and funding are pointless — including President Trump’s call for a wall on the southern border. TSA planning to deploy hundreds of volunteer staff to southern borderVideo
“No matter how high the wall will be built, how many drones you have, no matter how many agents you have in the border, they’ll keep coming because they want to get caught,” he said.
Graham told reporters he was prepared to work with Democrats on moving the bill in Congress.
“If we do these four things, then the incentives created by our laws will cease to exist, this humanitarian disaster will begin to repair itself and I am willing to sit down with Democrats and find a way to address the underlying problem in Central America,” he said. “I am willing to put other immigration ideas on the table to marry up with this but what I am not willing to do is ignore this problem any longer.”
Democrats initially appeared skeptical, with Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., telling ABC News: “Any immigration proposal that is harsh on children seeking asylum and does not address the root causes that are forcing them to flee their home countries will fail to stem the flow of migrants and is a nonstarter.”
Graham’s proposal comes after Customs and Border Protection said it apprehended or turned away more than 109,000 migrants attempting to cross the border in April, the second month in a row the number has topped 100,000.
Fox News confirmed Wednesday that The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is planning to send hundreds of officials to the southern border to help the Department of Homeland Security with the crisis.
The Department of Defense is shifting another $1.5 billion to build a “big & beautiful” border wall, says a tweet from pro-migration Democrat Senator Dick Durbin.
“The Pentagon has now reprogrammed 12 times more money to the wall than for repairs at Tyndall AFB, destroyed by Hurricane Michael. We should put troops first!,” said Durbin, who has spent years trying to win a no-strings amnesty for at least two million young “DACA” illegals.
The funding transfers are being conducted under the national emergency declared by President Donald Trump in February, when Congress refused to fund the border wall that was a central mandate of Trump’s 2016 election win.
Durbin opposes the wall and opposes the pro-American border reforms proposed by Trump. For example, on May 8, Durbin suggested to a panel of border officials that young migrants should be allowed to live in the United States if they claim they are being threatened by criminals.
One of the solutions [which is] proposed by the administration: Send them back where they came from. So I’m asking the obvious question. Let’s assume someone has said, ‘Im going to rape your daughter if you are not complicit with this gang,’ and you’ve said ‘I want my daughter out of here.’ Now the daughter is being returned after this perilous journey to the United States and she didn’t qualify and she is being sent back. So what assurance do we have of her safety when she returns?
A new survey in Guatemala showed roughly one million adults — not counting their children — say they expect to migrate to the United States in the next three years.
Since early 2018, Democrats have tacitly welcomed the migration of several hundred thousand people from Central American. The migrants use catch and release rules to walk through border fences and into the U.S. job market and U.S. neighborhoods, forcing down blue-collar wages and pumping up rental prices.
Politico reported May 8:
The expected [$1.5 billion transfer] comes on top of $1 billion shifted toward the border from unspent Army personnel accounts in March. Acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan unilaterally shifted the funds in the face of opposition from top Democrats on Capitol Hill.
The Trump administration has already drawn the ire of congressional Democrats by deploying thousands of troops to help secure the southern border and moving to siphon off billions in military funding for the border — including a national emergency declaration to raid $3.6 billion in military construction funds.
Shanahan told Durbin’s panel on Wednesday that enough money has been placed on contract to build 256 miles of border barriers.
On May 8, Shanahan predicted that 63 miles of wall will be built by October
Who could have seen that coming? As the poll’s count rose and pitched overwhelmingly to Kavanaugh…
Senate Democrats appear to have found it easier to erase history than admit defeat…
Well that didn’t work out as planned…
Assuming their own echo chamber would provide an ‘obvious’ conclusion, providing self-aggrandizing virtue signaling ammunition for the next news cycle attack on the vast right-wing conspiracy, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee tweeted out a simple poll to its 107,000 followers:
"Do you want more Supreme Court justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg or do you want more justices like Brett Kavanaugh?"
Do you want more Supreme Court justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg or do you want more justices like Brett Kavanaugh?

The results – as of 1330ET 5/3/19 – were that with over 200,000 votes already counted, RBG is losing to her arch-nemesis by 30-70% of the vote…
With two days to go, we suspect a cry of “unleash the bots” will be heard across liberal-media-dom to rescue the poll from this un-popular result.
For now, social media is having a good laugh at the latest Democrat backfire…
One of the major problems confronting the Democrats in 2020 is the state of the economy. Barring some deus ex machina, President Trump is going to campaign for reelection within the context of a significant economic boom. The stock market is booming. Inflation remains low. Real wages are up. Labor force participation is up. Unemployment is at near historic lows. Ordinarily, people would be happy for a great economy, but, with the Democrats, good news for America is bad news for their party.
Their most immediate problem is how to rationalize the economy under Trump to the economy overseen by Obama. At that point, the conventional wisdom among Democrats and professional economists was that high unemployment, low labor force participation, and stagnant wages were the new normal.
Now MSNBC “personality” Chris Hayes has his own theory to explain the difference:
Everyone who called for austerity got it wrong and caused harm
Everyone who scaremongered about the deficit got it wrong and caused harm
Everyone who wrote about the “skills gap” got it wrong and caused harm
Everyone who kept warning about inflation got it wrong and caused harm
Lots of regular people – critics, bloggers, gadflies, etc were able to see this but the commanding heights of the econ/policy/political worlds either could not or would not.
Or, an even less charitable interpretation: they didn’t get it wrong at all. They didn’t want full employment, they didn’t want wage growth and empowered workers and they certainly didn’t want that happening under a Democratic president.
I mean, years of the titans of industry whining about the skills mismatch, how they can’t find good workers, and chin-stroking conferences about labor force participation, and columns about how it was workers’ own fault, on and on and on, all just garbage.
Yep. That’s exactly what happened. Tens of thousands of American businesses decided they’d go out of business rather than let Obama’s economic plan be a success. Millions of Americans decided they’d just sit at home and not work to screw the black guy.
This is ridiculous.
Not to say that Obama didn’t inherit an economic mess, he did. But, like FDR’s New Deal, Obama tried to use a financial crisis to fundamentally change the US economy and to increase government influence. He reduced the workforce by nearly 9 million by liberalizing rules for disability insurance and did this as much to try to create a new class of benefit recipients who would reliably vote Democrat as for any other reason. But the reason that the economy has taken off under Trump is because both consumers and employers feel more secure in their finances and have more confidence to make major investments and purchases. Putting the brakes on federal rule-making and rolling back rules that inhibit growth have also been a factor. Getting out of the way as oil/gas exploration and extraction has boomed has been a major stimulus to the national economy.
More to the detail of Hayes nonsense. Obama was not burdened with any “austerity” measures
Neither has Trump benefited from an increase in inflation:
A lot of the “skills gap” was utter bullsh** pushed by the Chamber of Commerce in its eagerness to bring in more cheap H1B visa recipients to replace American workers. Under Obama, most American STEM graduates didn’t work in that field but no one in the White House ever challenged the narrative because Obama, too, wanted cheap foreign workers and Americans on the dole.
I have no doubt that this will become a full-fledged scandal, probably rating its own special counsel, by the time the election season is in full swing. There is probably a Michael Moore movie in the making about this conspiracy. But most people are going to see this for what it is, a dimwitted cable talking head trying to rationalize away a very good economy.
In the mid-1800s, hundreds of thousands of Americans began migrating west along the Oregon Trail to take advantage of federal legislation guaranteeing a plot of land to anyone who settled the region.
“The trail was arduous and snaked through Missouri and present-day Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho and finally into Oregon,” the History Channel notes. Thousands died of diseases and what are, today, easily treatable conditions like dysentery.
Over the next century or so, Oregon flourished and became home to scores of patriotic Americans who worked hard, built lives, and made something out of an obscure frontier.
But then something happened to destroy the frontier, can-do mentality of Oregonians: Democrats and their Left-wing supporters took over and now the state is hostage to anti-establishment, anti-patriotic lunacy.
In the age of POTUS Donald Trump, Portland has become ground zero for Leftist ‘protests’ and violence. The lawlessness has become so pronounced, in fact, that the local sheriff has now instructed his deputies to stay out of the city because it’s become too dangerous and they are getting no assistance from city police.
As Law Enforcement Today reported:
Portland just lost a huge chunk of its police presence.
On Friday, Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts wrote an email to his deputies, stating his concern for their safety.
“I will not place you at unnecessary personal and professional risk,” the email read.
Portland is mostly patrolled by the Portland Police Bureau, which has come under scrutiny and criticism in recent years for doing too little to intervene against lawless Leftists and Antifa anarchists who regularly take over city streets using violence and mayhem.
The PPB gets assistance from neighboring counties including the Clackamas Sheriff’s Department. However, with Roberts’ decision, that means PPB officers will be under even more pressure from a lack of staffing, even as new protests are being staged and scheduled.
On May Day, Portland underwent another Left-wing protest — for ‘immigrant’ and ‘workers rights’ set for the downtown area. (Related: Portland Mayor and Portland Chief of Police should be arrested for being complicit in mob violence and terrorism against citizens.)
Left-wing Democrats are destroying American cities and civility
Part of the problem is that the Leftists who run Portland hamstring their own police department. In February, Mayor Ted Wheeler ordered an investigation into the Portland Police Bureau after hundreds of texts between a department lieutenant and “right-wing activist” Joey Gibson were made public, The New York Times reported.
“Community members have long expressed concerns about police bias during demonstrations,” Mr. Wheeler said in a statement a day before he announced the investigation. “Incidents like this contribute to the distrust that so many people have about the Portland Police Bureau.”
The complaining ‘community members’ he’s talking about are Left-wing activists who have demonstrated open hostility towards the PPB and all police departments and officers, unlike Gibson’s organization.
And this is why Sheriff Roberts won’t send his deputies into Portland anymore: Left-wing hostility towards police that is sanctioned by city officials who are literally allowing the inmates to run the asylum.
In August, Wheeler attempted to prevent his own police department from sweeping up protesters manning a fetid, disgusting ‘camp’ at a local ICE office, which prevented federal workers from doing their jobs. Some ICE agents reported being threatened by Antifa types and left to fend for themselves because Wheeler forbade his officers from intervening to help federal immigration authorities.
POTUS Trump blasted Wheeler: “Last month, the mayor of Portland, Oregon shamefully ordered local police to stand down, leaving federal law enforcement officers to face an angry mob of violent people,” the president said.
This is what it’s coming to in American cities like Portland that are run by idiot Leftist Democrats: Lawless dens of violence and chaos, leading to a reduced police presence endangered residents.
Get ready to reap what Democrats are sowing; when cops stop showing up, mayhem isn’t far behind.
