POLITICS [VIDEO] LOL: CNN Goes to Minnesota and Discovers Most Democrats Are Now Trump Supporters
Post Date: 2019-09-20 08:27:52 by WWG1WWA
3 Comments
Oh, poor CNN. They headed all the way to the Democrat stronghold of Minnesota only to discover everyone’s voting for Tump. What a sad day for fake news, but a glorious day for Trump, and America First! The report begins with an interview with the mayor of Eveleth, Minnesota, who says “thousands” of Democrats are switching their support over to President Trump. Why is this happening you might wonder? Well, it’s simple really. It’s because President Trump supports mining – and in Minnesota, they mine for a mineral that used to create steel. Another townsman goes on to tell CNN that Democrats have moved so far left, that they’ve lost the American worker, ...

'Only plausible candidate': Never Trump Republicans plotting to back Biden
Post Date: 2019-09-19 09:43:06 by WWG1WWA
7 Comments
Republicans opposed to President Trump are quietly preparing to support Democratic front-runner Joe Biden, backing that could materialize in the primary as he attempts to fend off a surging Elizabeth Warren. Some Republican operatives active in Never Trump circles are discussing what form support for Biden might take and the timing. Groups such as Stand Up Republic, co-founded by prominent Never Trump Republicans Evan McMullin and Mindy Finn, could target disaffected GOP voters in key micro-battlegrounds with finely tailored advertising in a bid to boost Biden in the Democratic primary. Biden, 76, is the most likely Democrat to receive measurable support from the Never Trump crowd, most ...

Warren captures big endorsement from former Bernie supporters

Elizabeth Warren has officially received the warm embrace of democrat socialists – she scored the endorsement of the Working Families Party. This is a slap to Bernie Sanders, who received the party’s endorsement in 2016. Warren had a really good day Monday. Not only did she get the bragging rights of the Working Families Party endorsement but she also held a campaign rally to roll out her latest policy on fighting corruption in government. The rally was attended by more than 20,000 people – Warren is now in the Trump universe of huge crowds and mega-rallies. Ironically, the only other candidate that scores those kinds of numbers is Bernie Sanders. The location of the rally ...

Ilhan Omar Just Deleted A Tweet From 2013. Here's What It Said.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) deleted a tweet from 2013 wishing her father a Happy Father’s Day, providing his name in the post. “Happy Father's Day to my aabo Nur Said, I am forever grateful to Allah for giving me the best father…” read the tweet, linking to an Instagram post, which had previously been deleted. Omar was previously married to a man named Ahmed Nur Said Elmi, and some are saying this may be proof of the union. "In Somalia, one’s name is normally a first name, the father’s name, and then the grandfather’s name," reports the Daily Caller. Shaikh Tawhidi, the Imam of Peace, called attention to the post's removal. Judicial Watch ...

The House Judiciary Committee laid out the procedures on Monday of what it's calling its ongoing "impeachment investigation" of President Donald Trump. WASHINGTON — The House Judiciary Committee laid out specific committee procedures governing hearings moving forward as part of what it's calling an ongoing "impeachment investigation" of President Donald Trump, setting the stage for a vote to define that probe which could come this week. The release of the resolution comes after the committee's chairman, Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., declared last month that his panel was proceeding with an impeachment investigation despite there being no vote to do ...

Jim Jordan calls out House Dems: Figure out who's 'going to jail' over Trump-Russia, Clinton probes

As House Democrats prepare to proceed with their legislative agenda, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said lawmakers should shift their focus from impeachment to investigating former FBI Director James Comey and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. "When you're solely focused on going after the president you can't do what's best for the country. And that's been the problem with the Democrats," Jordan said Monday on "Fox & Friends." "Jim Comey... is the guy solely responsible for putting the country through three years of this saga that we have now lived through," he continued, arguing that many Americans want to know "when ...

Mark Sanford on Sunday said he will mount a primary challenge to President Trump in 2020, jumping into the race after publicly toying with the idea for several months. He said there needs to be a “conversation” on what it means to be a Republican. “I think that as a Republican Party we have lost our way,” said the former South Carolina governor on “Fox News Sunday.” Asked if he honestly thinks he has a shot at winning, Mr. Sanford said: “I’m saying, you never know.” ...

Biden’s bloody eye: A new health problem for Dem frontrunner?
Post Date: 2019-09-06 10:21:59 by Tooconservative

One would think that having a leading candidate spontaneously bleed out of an eye socket on live television would grab the media’s attention. One would think incorrectly, as it turns out, even when that presidential candidate is the 76-year-old frontrunner with a history of aneurysms. During last night’s CNN marathon forum on climate change, Joe Biden’s left eye filled with blood while he talked about climate change. Yet outside of a few conservative publications, hardly a media outlet blinked its own eyes, including the news channel that hosted it: The Washington Free Beacon reported on it, as did the Examiner: Former Vice President Joe Biden’s left eye appeared to ...

Libertarians Have Trouble Deciding Who Are Real Libertarians [My Title]

Misconceptions of Real Libertarians If you’ve been involved within the liberty movement for any considerable amount of time, you have no doubt been accused at some point of not being a real libertarian. Real libertarians are simultaneously common and rare within the movement. They are common enough in that they are always available to point out “fake” libertarians, but are also so rare that few (if any) have made it long without being dropped from the list of real libertarians. There are two problems with most instances of these accusations. But first, a clarification: there certainly are people that adopt the libertarian label but don’t adhere to libertarian values. ...

Mark Levin Rips Into Rand Paul Over Iran

Levin: Kentucky senator 'no different than' Ilhan Omar on foreign policy. Mark Levin tore into Sen. Rand Paul (R., Ky.) on his radio show Wednesday over his foreign policy after news that Paul wanted to be President Donald Trump's emissary to Iran. The conservative radio host responded to news that Paul had pitched Trump on being a backchannel to Iran for the administration and meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to reduce tensions. Paul had previously criticized the administration over the economic sanctions placed on Iran, saying Iranians viewed the sanctions as an act of war. Levin said Paul was "no different than Bernie Sanders or frankly Ilhan ...

Rand Paul Would Undermine Trump’s Iran Policy

The senator's views on the Islamic Republic are dangerous and deeply misguided. The Trump administration's strategy toward Iran is to exert maximum pressure on the regime to force it to renegotiate the flawed nuclear deal and, hopefully, to reach a broader agreement that curtails Iran's nonnuclear belligerence, both within its borders and across the Middle East. And if Tehran refuses to negotiate, then the administration will crush Iran's tyrannical regime using the immense weight of American power, giving Iranian leaders a choice: yield, compromise, and survive, or risk untold suffering—and possible extinction. The strategy is working. Already one hears ...

Libertarians smarter? [Full Thread]

Are liberals really smarter than conservatives? Or are libertarians smarter than anyone else? A recent column in The Daily Mail suggests so. True or not, it shows that “liberal” and “conservative” are not the only two extremes of opinion. In fact, they are special cases of a far more general political landscape.Traditional political labels By tradition, “conservative” and “liberal” (formerly “progressive”) stand for two different sets of freedoms on one hand, and entitlements on the other. This linear graph of left-of-center v. right-of-center dates from the National Assembly of Revolutionary France. The only thing that defined the ...

An Islamist, a Communist, and a libertarian walk into a bar. The Islamist says submission to Allah is the highest virtue and an ideal society adopts Sharia Law. The Communist strokes his grizzled beard in disagreement. “Religion is the opium of the people. What really matters is equality!” He then explains how Communism fixes inequality caused by bourgeois decadence. The Islamist nods approvingly—after all, decadence is sinful. Finally, the libertarian pipes up: “No, no. Individual liberty is what really matters! Sharia Law and communism are fundamentally immoral because they violate personal freedoms.” The Islamist and communist exchange a furtive glance before ...

(Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call/Newscom) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D–N.Y.) spends much of her time in the public eye separating herself from the pack in Washington, D.C. Sometimes that means criticizing the GOP, other times, lamenting what she sees as the sheepishness of her own party. But in an Instagram live stream last week, the democratic socialist congresswoman told viewers that she does find some commonality with libertarians."I actually think I have a lot of common ground with many libertarian viewpoints in [the Republican] party," Ocasio-Cortez said, emphasizing her stances on immigration, the military, and privacy rights. Her admission comes not long after she and ...

Cory Booker Is Right: Joe Biden's Criminal Justice Record 'Destroyed Lives'

A sharp exchange at tonight's Democratic debate showed that, no matter how much he'd like to, former Vice President Joe Biden won't be able to sidestep his disastrous record on criminal justice. CNN moderator Jake Tapper asked Biden to respond to New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker's criticism that Biden's recently unveiled criminal justice reform proposal was "an inadequate solution to what is a raging crisis in our country." "Right now, we're in a situation where, when someone is convicted of a drug crime, they end up going to jail and to prison," Biden said. "They should be going to rehabilitation. They shouldn't be going to prison. When in ...

They are human beings.""I get tired of folks saying, 'Oh, oh, they ...

(TMU) — Political insider George Nader has been indicted on federal charges of sex trafficking for reportedly raping a 14-year-old boy that he transported from Europe. The Lebanese-American businessman pleaded not guilty to the charges—which also included separate counts relating to possession of child pornography and obscenity—in a Virginia court on Friday. According to court documents, Nader brought a 14-year-old boy into the U.S. through Dulles International Airport in Washington D.C. in February of 2000, the Washington Post reported. Nader, 60, once served as an adviser to the ruler of Abu Dhabi and also played a key part in Robert Mueller’s investigation ...

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Kentucky Democrats will have more options on next year's ballot when deciding who should take on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in 2020. Farmer and retired Marine Mike Broihier, a first-time candidate, entered the race Thursday with a three-minute advertisement that calls on voters to forget their labels. “It's time to retire Mitch McConnell," Broihier said in an interview with the Louisville Courier Journal this week. "We have to do it to restore our democracy, and I've been warned about what he's capable of doing, but it doesn't scare me." The spot features a diverse group of Kentuckians holding tiny chalkboards ...

Media And Public Disagree On Tulsi Gabbard's Debate Performance

The mainstream media seem to judge the Democratic primary debate last night quite differently than the general public. Quartz cites multiple polls which show that Tulsi Gabbard won the debate: [T]wo candidates seemed to pique a lot of interest among US voters, at least when judged by who Americans searched for on Google: New Jersey senator Cory Booker and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. A poll by the right-leaning Drudge Report also found Gabbard to be the breakout of the debate with 38% of the vote, well ahead of Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren in second place. Gabbard also topped polls by local news sites including NJ.com and the Washington Examiner. Now contrast that with the ...

Who is John Bolton? "Tough Guy," Vietnam Draft Dodger Joining a long and illustrious list of privileged boys who start wars but never have to fight in them, it turns out John Bolton, Mister Let's Attack Iran, took an easy way when it was his turn to fight. It is not surprising that Bolton supported the Vietnam War while at Yale and might have even debated in favor of it as a member of the Yale Political Union. But when his draft number came up 185, Johnny Boy copped to the Guard. Since the National Guard units across America were full of boys doing exactly the same thing, almost guaranteed stateside service rather than nasty ambushes in the jungle, it sometimes took some ...
