Media And Public Disagree On Tulsi Gabbard's Debate Performance
Post Date: 2019-06-27 15:41:49 by Hondo68
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
Post Date: 2019-06-23 18:45:13 by Operation 40
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 ...
Trump fills the Pentagon swamp
Post Date: 2019-06-19 09:46:04 by Deckard
When Donald Trump spoke of coming to Washington to drain the swamp, you might have thought the swamp he derided was the incestuous network of insiders who enrich themselves while passing through the revolving door between government and K Street. You might have thought the draining would involve slowing the revolving door and ceasing this cycle of self-enrichment. But no. By the swamp, Trump clearly just meant people I dont like. And the draining never happened. This week, as a former executive from Boeing (the No. 2 contractor for the Defense Department last year) stepped down as Trumps acting defense secretary, Trump replaced him ...
Why Avoiding the Cult of Personality Is Important
Post Date: 2019-06-19 09:39:29 by Deckard
Many have been attracted to numerous political figures, and they can take it too far.Cult of Personality One of my biggest weaknesses is developing too much admiration for those who help contribute to how I think. I believe this rings true for most people. You likely experience this when listening to a band that soon becomes your favorite or an author who writes the novel that speaks to you. This often contributes to fan groups online and could potentially evolve into very heated arguments as to whose group is superior. When this translates to politics, the emotional connection is very similar. We often think about political figures in unhealthy ways, whether they fill us with overflowing ...
Why Gillibrand Is the Most Vapid Clown in the Car

She is so excruciatingly, insufferably, painfully stupid, shallow, pandering, desperate, and without ethics. Kirsten Gillibrand. United States Senator from New York. Candidate for 2020 Democrat Presidential nomination. Dolt. She was not initially on my radar. I follow the news like a hawk, but she always was so politically lightweight make that bantamweight that she did not register. Here in California, register is a term we often use for earthquakes.

It is not that I live amid a high bar for United States Senate excellence. ...
FIRE THE NUTCASES LEADING US TO WAR
Post Date: 2019-05-20 09:40:35 by Deckard
President Donald Trump claimed this week that he does not want war with Iran. If he really believes this, the president ought to look into what his subordinates are doing. Among their bellicose actions are deployment of the Abraham Lincoln CVN-72 carrier task force to the coast of Iran, massing a strike package of B-52 heavy bombers in Qatar, just across the Gulf from Iran, positioning more US warplanes around Iran, readying a massive cyber attack against Iran, and trying to stop the export of Iranian oil, upon which its economy depends. Plus repeated attempts to overthrow the government in Tehran something the US already did very skillfully in 1953. If all this is not ...

Cali Democrat Dianne Feinstein Slams Illegal Immigration: “People Who Should Be Here Are Those Who Come Legally”
Post Date: 2019-03-07 09:30:58 by Deckard
Democrats have been staunch supporters of unfettered, borderless immigration over the last several years, often claiming that anyone against allowing undocumented individuals into the United States is a xenophobe and morally bankrupt. But as youll see below from none other than California Senator Dianne Feinstein, reducing the flow of undocumented migrants is a necessity for a variety of reasons, including budgetary considerations and lower crime. In the following video Feinstein makes the exact same points President Trump is making today, except somehow Trump is a wrong for doing so. What changed?

Weld switches from Libertarian back to GOP as he mulls 2020 challenge to Trump

Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld is mulling running for president and has taken a step toward challenging President Trump for the Republican nomination in 2020, according to a report. Weld, 73, has changed his party registration in the Bay State from Libertarian back to Republican, according to the Associated Press. A former Republican governor during the 1990s in the strongly blue state, Weld was running mate to 2016 Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. [Also read: Inside the secret Republican plot to take down Trump in 2020] Johnson and Weld earned less than 1 percent of the vote that year, good for about 4.4 million votes.

Kasich Looking to Join Fake News Brigade After Governorship (third party, bipartisan kind of ticket)

Fake news is giving the #NeverTrump stalwart a serious look. Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) is shopping for contracts with leftist cable news networks for when his tenure in office comes to a merciful end. Kasich has signaled to close advisors and some donors that he is looking to sign with either CNN or MSNBC as he finishes his two-term tenure as Ohios governor, according to three people with knowledge of the conversations, including two who have been close to the governor since his 2016 presidential run, CNBC reports. Kasich, a staunch member of the #NeverTrump crowd, spent less time governing over the past two years than bashing President Donald J. Trump. Kasich ...

To Win The 2020 Race Trump Will Need To Fire More Of His Staff
Post Date: 2018-12-29 17:44:41 by Hondo68
We pointed out that overruling his advisors by ending the U.S. war on Syria was a decision that will define Trump's presidency: This was the first time Trump took a decisive stand against the borg, the permanent neoconservative and interventionist establishment in his administration, the military and congress, that usually dictates U.S. foreign policy. It was this decision, and that he stuck to it, which finally made him presidential. Three analysts explain why Trump will need to go further down that road by finding people who diligently implement his foreign policy instead of undermining it. Gareth Porter describes how the U.S. military under Secretary of Defense Mattis implemented ...
Blame Anybody but Trump

For the president, self-love means never having to say youre sorry.For the last decade, I have been writing an end-of-the-year column recalling memorable examples of blame shifting during the previous 12 months. At first these compendiums featured various public figures, including Barack Obama. But then Donald Trump took up residence in the White House, providing such a rich trove of examples that no one else could compete. Although Trump had never held public office before he was elected president, he outdoes professional politicians in his obstinate refusal to accept responsibility for any problem or failure. For Trump, as these highlights from 2018 show, self-love means never ...

The Counterinsurgency Paradigm: How U.S. Politics Have Become Paramilitarized
Post Date: 2018-11-28 11:20:11 by Deckard
Donald Trump ran a campaign promising to refill the notorious Guantanamo Bay prison, to bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding, to take out the families of suspected terrorists, to ban Muslims from entering this country, and to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Yet these policies didnt start with Trump: Torture, indefinite detention, extraordinary renditions, record numbers of deportations, anti-Muslim sentiment, mass foreign and domestic surveillance, and even the killing of innocent family members of suspected terrorists all have a recent historical precedent. Trumps predecessor, Barack Obama, continued some of the worst policies ...
Don’t Count on Americans Hating Each Other Any Less Post-Midterms
Post Date: 2018-11-16 05:46:31 by Deckard
Baffled by and fearful of each other, the political tribes remain consumed by loathing and dedicated to total victory.To judge by the reactions to last week's mid-term elections, casting votes isn't the key to settling political tensions in the United States. As I write, Republicans are publicly accusing Democrats of manufacturing ballots to steal elected offices, while Democrats charge that Republicans somehow gerrymandered state borders to swipe victories in Senate races. It's as if the members of America's two dominant political tribes so despise each other that assuming some degree of decency on each other's part is out of the question. So hang on for a ride ...

Stop freaking out about the midterms.If you believe that a midterm election in a time of relative peace and economic prosperity is the most important in history or even the most important in your fortunate lifetime, you either are oblivious to history or don't have a single nonpartisan synapse firing in your skull. Yet it's now become standard for partisans to claim that every presidential election is the most important ever. Seeing as many people view the president as an emperor, perhaps they believe it. That's one thing. But now we have people foisting this insufferable cliche on us for House elections, which happen every two years in every single district. The 2018 election ...

When everything is politicized, everything becomes a death match. That ain't good. You can't "be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about," Hillary Clinton told CNN's Christiane Amanpour a week ago, defending the win-at-all-costs mentality that many Democrats are pushing before the midterm elections. That was before the Republican candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, Scott Wagner, told the Democratic incumbent that he "better put a catcher's mask on your face because I'm going to stomp all over your face with golf spikes because I'm going to win this." It was before street brawls between ...
The Republican Party Abandons Conservatism (Duh!)

The conservative virtues remain real virtues, the conservative insights real insights, and the conservative temperament an indispensable internal gyro keeping a country stable and sane. Ignoring the dictum that if one is not of the left as a young person, one has no heart, and not of the right in middle age, one has no head, I have always been a conservative. I voted Republican most of the time, affiliated with the GOP, and served proudly as a political appointee under two Republican presidents. I bitterly opposed Donald Trumps candidacy and dropped my Republican affiliation once he won in 2016, figuring that the party would soon fall in line. I said as much in public, and my ...
