A woman with a name tag noting her as the manager rolled her eyes and said to no one in particular as she went about stacking the shelves behind the counter, "And they wonder why people don't vote for Democrats around here anymore."

Former President Barack Obama had some words for the incoming President and First Lady WASHINGTON (INTELLIHUB) Contents of a personal letter cherished by President Donald Trump which was authored by former President Barack Obama and left for the incoming commander-in-chief on the day of his inauguration have recently been revealed. The full letter, obtained exclusively by CNN reads: Dear Mr. President Congratulations on a remarkable run.

Trump Quietly Nominates Mass Surveillance Advocate To “Protect” Your Privacy Rights
Post Date: 2017-09-05 10:18:30 by Deckard
By Carey Wedler Though outrage over mass surveillance swept the United States after Edward Snowdens revelations in 2013, there is little discussion of these invasive practices just four years later. This apathy comes despite former President Barack Obamas move to expand to information sharing between agencies just days before Trump took office and after the Trump administration signaled its desire to continue widespread surveillance. Amid this lack of attention toward the NSA, the president recently nominated a staunch advocate of mass surveillance to chair one of the few barriers standing between intrusive government spying and the American ...
'He's an a------, but he's our a------': California congressman gives blunt assessment of Trump
Post Date: 2017-08-29 11:21:14 by Deckard
Rep. Duncan Hunter of California gave a blunt description of President Donald Trump after being asked by a group of Republicans to describe him, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. "He's just like he is on TV," Hunter said on Friday. "He's an asshole, but he's our asshole." The account was corroborated by four people at the Riverside County Young Republicans meeting at a sports bar, The Tribune reported. Hunter was also joined by Rep. Ken Calvert of California for the event. Hunter reportedly covered his mouth as he spoke: "He put his hand near his mouth like when you are going to whisper something," said Jose Guzman, one of the attendees. ...
Will Justice Come For IRS Lawbreakers At Last?
Post Date: 2017-08-29 10:56:25 by XDMAR
buse Of Power: The IRS scandal seemingly has lain dormant now for months, all but forgotten amid the spate of recent anti-Trump media spasms, the ongoing violent antics of the antifa leftists and, now, Hurricane Harvey's devastation. But even if much of Washington has forgotten about it, a Washington judge hasn't. As reported by the Washington Examiner, Judge Reggie B. Walton of the Washington, D.C., District Court last week revived legal attention to the scandal, telling the IRS it has to reveal the names of IRS employees who targeted conservative, libertarian and Tea Party groups. But Walton didn't stop there. He also gave the IRS until Oct. 16 to find all the records in IRS ...
Duncan Hunter says Trump's 'an a--hole but he's our a--hole'
Post Date: 2017-08-29 09:45:47 by Willie Green
Maybe Rep. Duncan Hunter left his fidget spinner at home, or maybe the California Republican didn't think he was talking on the record. Either way, Hunter just gave the most unvarnished, most unguarded, and most uncouth assessment of President Trump. "He's just like he is on TV," Hunter reportedly told a group of Young Republicans gathered at a sports bar. "He's an asshole, but he's our asshole." While that's not outlandish language outside D.C., it's unheard of inside the GOP conference. Trump's presidency has taken a turn for the worse, but most Republican lawmakers will bite their tongues before complaining about the president. Duncan's ...
Pelosi Very Confused: You "Can't Shout Wolf in a Crowded Theater"
Post Date: 2017-08-26 03:53:06 by Tooconservative
Nancy Pelosi has been very confused this year. She keeps calling President Trump President Bush and continues to struggle with her vocabulary. The latest example happened in an interview with KRON when she mixed her metaphors, as The Washington Free Beacon reported, when talking about what the First Amendment does and doesnt cover when it comes to free speech. "The Constitution does not say that a person can shout yell wolf in a crowded theater, Pelosi said, stumbling. If you are endangering people, then you dont have a constitutional right to do that. Perhaps yelling wolf in a theater could be frightening for ...
2018 Will Be A Bloodbath – For Democrats
Post Date: 2017-08-24 06:19:20 by Tooconservative
As President Trumps troubles mount, the long-standing expectation that Democrats will gain several House and Senate seats in 2018 has only intensified. At this point, many observers are expecting a bloodbath and theyre right. But for structural, historical, and intangible reasons, expect the bloodbath to be for Democrats as the GOP further expands its dominance in both houses of Congress. I see five reasons Democrats on Capitol Hill should stock up on life preservers. 1) Trumps unpopularity wont matter. Republicans and moderates who like Trump will vote Republican out sympathy with the presidents state of siege, but many of those who dont like him ...

The president's latest flip-flop is total and appalling. Will it finally alienate his base?As Matt Welch and Ed Krayewski have noted, President Donald Trump's plans for a United States military presence in Afghanistan aren't just secretive and undefined. They represent a total reversal of earlier statements condemning America's longest war for its utter lack of effectiveness and unconscionable loss of life and gigantic waste of money. To date, over 2,400 U.S. military have died in the war in Afghanistan and estimates of the cost run between $840 billion and $2 trillion. "Let's get with it," Citizen Trump said in 2012 at a video blog he used to promote The ...
How Bad Are the Republicans in Congress?
Post Date: 2017-08-22 09:30:09 by Deckard
I have said over the years that Republicans in Congress are at their worst when they have control of both Houses of Congress, and especially when they hold the presidency as well. Like now. The last time the Republicans had absolute control of the government was during the presidency of George W. Bush when they had a majority in the House and Senate for over four years. And what did they do when they were in charge? They almost doubled the federal budget and the national debt, created the monstrous Department of Homeland Security, greatly expanded the Department of Education, passed the Patriot Act, let the government begin spying on Americans, started two senseless wars, and instituted the ...

It is now a year since the Democratic National Committees mail system was compromiseda year since events in the spring and early summer of 2016 were identified as remote hacks and, in short order, attributed to Russians acting in behalf of Donald Trump. A great edifice has been erected during this time. President Trump, members of his family, and numerous people around him stand accused of various corruptions and extensive collusion with Russians. Half a dozen simultaneous investigations proceed into these matters. Last week news broke that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had convened a grand jury, which issued its first subpoenas on August 3. Allegations of treason are common; ...
Hillary Clinton Considers Becoming a Methodist Preacher

Failed presidential candidate and former first lady Hillary Clinton now has some interest in becoming a Methodist preacher, according to The Atlantic. Clintons pastor Bill Shillady told The Atlantic that Clinton had expressed interest in preaching when he saw her at a photo shoot for his book Strong for a Moment Like This for which Clinton has written the foreward. The book features daily devotionals he sent her during the 2016 campaign. Clinton is lifting up an intimate, closely guarded part of herself, Emma Green writes. There are no more voters left to lose. In sharing her faith, perhaps Clinton sees something left to win, whether political or personal. ...
Oops, Republicans Did It Again (The GOP predictably fails to deliver on their small government rhetoric.)
Post Date: 2017-08-03 10:19:56 by Deckard
Despite a mountain of historical evidence that the Republican Party doesn't seriously stand for smaller government and individual liberty, I maintained some hope that this time would be different. With the GOP's retaking control of Congress and the White House, I actually thought Obamacare could be repealed and maybe even replaced with free market health care reforms. But though the night is still young in terms of the GOP's latest return to power, Republicans have quickly demonstrated that I should have trusted my usual pessimism, because it's clear that they're not guided by any principled support for limited government. Though a few congressional Republicans sincerely ...
Rand Paul just blocked the defense bill, and John McStain is not happy about it
Post Date: 2017-07-29 17:39:13 by Anthem
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is calling for a debate on rolling back authorizations for the use of military force that began during the George W. Bush administration. Paul objected to a consent request from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to begin defense authorization debate. Paul wants to offer amendments to the defense policy bill. According to a Tweet from Pauls senior strategist, Doug Stafford, one of Pauls amendments would seek to end the Authorization for Use of Military Force. Senator Rand Paul requested two bipartisan amendments, one on ending indefinite detention and one on AUMFs, Stafford said. RELATED: Rand Paul: The failure to repeal ...

Given the bravery he showed in stepping out front as the first senator to endorse Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions deserves better from his boss than the Twitter-trashing he has lately received. The attorney general has not only been loyal to Trump and his agenda, he has the respect and affection of ex-colleagues in Congress and, more broadly, of populists and conservatives nationally. Trumps tweets about Sessions are only demoralizing his base. Yet the president is not wrong to be exasperated and enraged.

The GOP Is No Longer A Â‘ConservativeÂ’ Party
Post Date: 2017-07-28 09:26:24 by Willie Green
Theyve become radical, and they want to remake America. To most Americans, conservative is interchangeable with Republican Party. After all, the GOP has usually been the more conservative side of a two-party system for a century. We also tend to understand who a conservative is based on the root of the word: someone who is cautious and respects the status quo, or, put more strongly, someone who is resistant to change. But the term has philosophical roots, too, separate from the party. Political parties are fundraising organizations attached to a policy platform. Over time, platforms change. The Republican Party has been around more than 160 years and has ...

The House of Representatives voted down a Republican proposal to ban the Pentagon from paying for gender-transition surgeries after 24 GOP congressmen crossed party lines to join the Democratic side. Republican Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzlers proposal to restrict funding for transgender members of the military was shut down in a close 209-214 vote on the the House floor Thursday after 24 GOP members sided with Democrats.

Why Republicans Exempted Their Own Insurance From Obamacare Rollback

Ted Cruz has written a bill that would strike an exemption for senators health care.Senate budget rules are giving opponents of the rollback of the 2010 health care law an easy way to attack Republicans for hypocrisy. The Senate GOP may not really want to immunize their own member and staff health plans from their health care policy changes, but because they are seeking to bring their bill to the floor under the expedited budget reconciliation process, they have little choice. Sen. Ted Cruz has already unveiled a fix to nullify the exemption, but that bill would take 60 votes to overcome any filibuster attempts. ...
