PRESIDENT TRUMP ADDS $4-TRILLION IN U.S. WEALTH SINCE ELECTION---LIBERAL MEDIA STILL CHASING RUSSIANS

Money Talks………Bullshit Walks

While the Democrats and their complicit liberal media continues their narcissistic-obsessive witch-hunt to remove a sitting President with their ridiculous “Russian/Collusion” doctrine, Donald J. Trump has, (almost single-handedly), added FOUR TRILLION DOLLARS in wealth to the U.S. economy.

In March of this year, the British news service Independent reported Wall Street investors netted a three-trillion gain since the President was elected:

“Wall Street investors make $3 trillion since Donald Trump’s US presidential election victory

The Wilshire 5000 Total Market Index made up of more than 3,000 stocks, has gained about 12 per cent since the election

Stocks have added nearly $3 trillion to their paper value since Mr. Trump’s election as measured by the Wilshire 5000 Total Market Index.

The index, made up of more than 3,000 stocks, including an assortment of big companies, mid-sized businesses and small ones, has gained about 12 per cent since the election.”




On June 19th, 2017, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told CNBC that Trump had added another TRILLION to that gain:

“President Donald Trump's fulfilling of campaign promises is responsible for the recent stock market gains, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told CNBC on Monday.

"We're lowering taxes, we're cutting regulations, we're stimulating the workforce, helping to develop the workforce of the future, unleashing our energy resources and redoing our trade agreements," Ross said.

"That's the whole package that President Trump was elected on, and it's the whole package that's driven the stock market to $4 trillion of gains since the election."

Since the election, the Dow Jones industrial average has surged more than 16 percent, the S&P 500 has gained more than 13 percent, and the Nasdaq composite has risen 18 percent as of Friday's close.”

CNBC also reported on June 27th that consumer confidence rose, defying "expectations".

"Consumer confidence hits 118.9 in June, versus 116 estimate. The Consumer Confidence Index now stands at 118.9, up from its May reading and defying expectations for it to drop."

And, a Market-Watch investor says “the rate of gains are about to pick up”.

Anyone remember how the LameStream Media was reveling how the stock market was nose-diving during the evening that Trump defeated Clinton?

Remember how the "we hate Trump" Atlantic was chortling over this short-lived market dive?

"As election results rolled in, global and futures markets responded to the surprisingly close contest by plummeting, with the Dow dropping nearly 800 points. Follow along here for continuing updates on how the world financial markets are responding to the election of Donald Trump as 45th president of the United States."

And, right on cue, CNN-Money couldn't wait to report this devastating news:

"Investors around the world are reacting with shock to Donald Trump's victory in the U.S. presidential election.

Most global stock markets are dropping, Mexico's currency has tanked and U.S. stocks are poised for a rough open.

Markets hate uncertainty, and many investors believe Trump's unpredictable nature and anti-trade stance could bring global turmoil.

Dow futures were down about 300 points early Wednesday morning, or about 1.5%. At their low point on Tuesday night, Dow futures were down more than 900 points."

And..........

Global markets in tailspin as Trump victory declared
Adam Shell, USA TODAY Published 8:43 p.m. ET Nov. 8, 2016 | Updated 2:43 a.m. ET Nov. 9, 2016

Yet, Forbes Online correctly chronicled the roller-coaster ride just after Trump’s victory with live updates:

NOV 9, 2016 @ 04:04 PM 66,977 12 Stocks to Buy Now ~ Stock Market Slingshots Higher After Trump Victory Sparked Overnight Plunge

Six months later, a FOUR TRILLION DOLLAR GAIN, and the pathetic Mainstream Liberal Media is still chasing Russians.

(Note: The Dow lost 29 points yesterday, (July 20th) and is down 76 points in the early trading today. Anyone care to bet when the Media claims the sky is falling?)

THE RUSSIAN OBSESSION WILL NOT SAVE THE DEMOCRATS IN 2018

In response to a NewsBuster’s article titled “The American Left's Downward Spiral” , your’s truly posted this comment:

“The unabated Russian obsession by the Democrats and their complicit Media will be another major downfall in the 2018 Election cycle.  American voters are quite aware of the obsessed mania of the Democrats, (many who have yet to accept the results of the 2016 Election), and their dreams of removing a sitting President.  

Hillary tried, AND FAILED, the "I'm not Trump" tactic, along with the identity politics in pulling out every card in their deck---race, gender, you name it, the Democrats tried it.  This Trump/Russian Obsession will also FAIL the Democrats as a motivating tool for their leaderless party.

Even the hapless CNN posted a poll the other day, showing the top four concerns of the voting public---health care was #1 at 35%, followed by the economy, unemployment/jobs, and national security/terrorism.

Not found in the polling priorities was a Trump/Russian/Collusion/Obsession which CNN spews 24/7. Much like their search for a missing plane in the Indian Ocean, CNN and the rest of the anti-Trump Media cohorts have over-played their hands---dragging the Democrats along in their frenzied “Russian obsession“---to the chagrin of the American Voters.

Since the advent of the Federalization of Health Care, aka, ObamaCare, the Democrats have lost all national power, the House, the Senate, the White House, Governorships, Statehouses, to the Republican Party.  With their Russian Obsession at the forefront of their platform, the Democrats are destined to lose again.  Deservedly.”

OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE---LIBERAL JUSTICE (AGAIN) FAILS TO UNDERSTAND SEPARATION OF POWERS




Once again, a bleeding heart liberal Judge from a U.S. District Court has gone beyond his pay grade, ie, Constitutional authority, to define the parameters of President Trump’s travel ban.

Derrick Kahala Watson, appointed to the bench in 2015 by Barack Obama, is the same judge who instituted a restraining order against Trump’s revised travel ban, before getting unanimously slapped down by the Supreme Court in June. 

Watson, (again ignoring the separation of powers and the powers granted exclusively to the executive branch), has erroneously decided his court alone can define the extent of “bona fide  applicants”, expanding the relationships to include “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States.”

Via the Wall Street Journal:  

“Judge Watson said the Trump administration’s ban implementation after the high court ruling tilted the scale too far in its favor and against those travelers with U.S. family connections. He ordered that the ban not apply to “grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States.”

“Common sense, for instance, dictates that close family members be defined to include grandparents. Indeed, grandparents are the epitome of close family members,” the judge wrote.

Judge Watson also loosened some Trump administration restrictions on what type of U.S. relationships qualify to exempt refugees from the ban. The judge said refugees aren’t subject to the ban if they are covered by a formal admissions agreement between the U.S. government and a refugee resettlement agency.

Lawyer Neal Katyal, who is representing Hawaii in its challenge to the Trump travel ban, on Twitter called the ruling a sweeping victory.”

So the Judge, [Watson], inserts his own "common sense" by expanding the admissions to include not only grandparents, but also basically anyone related to them in defining the exemptions, an argument three conservative supreme court justices have already stated is not the business or right of the courts: 

"Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch dissented on the exemptions. They argued that the court has no business or right interfering with the president’s foreign policy and that the “relationship” standard is so vague that it will spawn thousands of litigations." 

It appears Thomas, Alito, and Gorsuch were entirely correct in their dissent---as once again, a lower court judge fails miserably to understand any President's right to set foreign policy standards---Constitutionally granted by our legislature. Hopefully, before Christmas, Watson, (and lawyer J. Noble Daggett-Katyal), will understand how the President's executive power is exclusively protected.

DECLARING INDEPENDENCE---TRUMP KEEPS WINNING, WHILE DEMOCRATS AND MEDIA LOSE


The Democrats and their complicit Media are in a full blown meltdown mode.  With their wholly-contrived Russian/Collusion conspiracy theory falling apart, the search for a new “get Trump” narrative is not only falling on deaf ears, much of the general public is tiring of the Media’s non-stop anti-President tirades.

And, make no mistake, the Mainstream Media has NEVER found themselves in an adversarial position where a President "INDEPENDENTLY" fought back, called them on the carpet, ie, exposed their lies, while shining a bright light on their sick anti-American agenda.

While the Press, (AP, NYTs, Wapo, CNN, et all), publish their retractions, (from the fabricated stories their editors approved), their credibility ratings continue tanking to a point of no return---”we have all become National Enquirer-ers” in the eyes of the public.

Meanwhile, the always meek and spineless Republicans, (and their pathetically feckless messaging apparatus), cowardly sits back, (fearing their own shadows), and does nothing to defend their President or his agenda.  The Democrats and their Media are lying on the canvas of the “political ring”, bloodied, beaten, and down for the count, and the Establishment Republican Party hides in the corner, (ashamed of a probable victorious outcome), while surreptitiously throwing the enemy a lifeline.  Why?  And, to what end?

Never has a Republican President, (other than Reagan to a lesser extent), had to take on his adversaries, (with little or no support from his own party), soundly defeated them to the point of submission, and found only his most ardent supporters still standing proudly in his corner. 

Donald J. Trump could single-handedly win the Super-Bowl and his team-mates, (much of his own party), sitting on the bench would demand the MVP Trophy, when what they deserve is a participation certificate with a declaration---"turn in your unstained uniforms and find another profession that recognizes your glaring limitations".
"The FAKE MEDIA is trying to silence us - but we will not let them. We won & they lost! The dishonest media will NEVER keep us from accomplishing our objectives on behalf of our GREAT AMERICAN PEOPLE!" ~ Donald J. Trump

Our President continues to put AMERICA FIRST. That's why were still winning.

The Departure of Anthony Kennedy---Democrat’s Worst Nightmare




Democrats’ Greatest Fear About to Become Reality

The rumors of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s possible retirement from the bench had been talked about for months.  Now, it’s reached a fever pitch when it was reported at the Washington Examiner that the date for Kennedy’s Staffer Reunion was moved up---by a whole year:  

“Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and his clerks moved up a long-planned reunion event for his staffers by a year, sparking rumors that the 30-year veteran of the high court was contemplating retirement. Should Kennedy step down, it would remove one of the Supreme Court's key swing votes and give President Trump the opportunity to give it a durable conservative majority.”

Ruth Marcus at the Washington Post fears Kennedy’s departure would be “terrifying” and unleash an “Armageddon”. 

“The end of the Supreme Court term looms, and with it the prospect — the terrifying prospect — of a retirement. Specifically, the retirement of Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who will turn 81 next month and is the longest-serving current justice, named to the high court almost 30 years ago.

So if Kennedy is inclined to retire, it is hard to begrudge him that choice. But his departure would be terrible for the court and terrible for the country. It could not come at a worse time. Any court vacancy these days, under a president of either party, triggers a battle between liberal and conservative forces. Kennedy’s retirement would unleash nomination Armageddon, given the feral political environment and the pivotal role he plays on the closely divided court.”  (link)

Nominated by President Ronald Reagan on November 11, 1987 and taking his oath of office in February of ‘88, Kennedy was thought to be a solid conservative choice, yet over the years he became known as the “swing-voter”, far too often voting with the Liberal Justices on key rulings.  If Kennedy does indeed retire after this current session ends, Marcus, (and the Democrat’s) worst fear will be realized.

The Media and the Pundits seem to be pushing for “big fight” to thwart the inevitable, but since the Dems helped to put an end to the filibuster question with Gorsuch’s nomination, all they can do is make noise to their base.

And, if this isn't bad enough for the Democrats, Breyer and Ginsburg may not be far behind.

Why Democrats Lose, and, Will Continue to Lose





Two days after the Democrats suffered defeat in the heavily-invested Georgia-6 race, the talk from the beltway is one of self-reflection and evaluation.  The Democrats have yet to realize their “we aren’t Trump” campaign isn’t resonating with the voters.

The Hollywood left and the New York liberal elites thought they could buy an election in the deep south with their “high-school president” candidate, and once again, the pollsters and the liberal media told their constituents “this one was in the bag”, (I’m talking to YOU Nate Silver).

With the non-stop revolting reaction of Trump defeating Clinton---from the phony Russian investigations, to the rioting in the cities, to the Bernie Sanders nutcase attack/attempted murder of Republicans, to the violent rhetoric, (see Griffin, Shakespeare in the Park)---the American Voters, even the timid moderate Democrats, wants nothing to do with this ugly side of the left.

Democrat Leaders, and their complicit anti-Trump opposition media have pounded the tactics of obstruction and accusations, supplying false/unsourced stories even the non-political junkies are literally laughing at.

To make matters worse, (for Democrats), the 5-0 special election victories, (that have devastated the Left’s long awaited narrative that any victory, [by Democrats], is a referendum on Donald Trump and his agenda), puts the entire party in dire straights when looking ahead to the 2018 Congressional races.  Republicans, (if they have any intelligence), should have a plethora of material---supplied by the vile left---to produce advertising that should decimate almost any Democrat in any “unsafe” or a contested district.

Last night, our President addressed the people of Iowa, (and by extension most of the country), with an optimistic/positive rally calling for a unifying direction, while touting his agenda of tax reform, gutting and replacing O’Care, and building our nation’s infrastructure---ALL JOB-PRODUCING VENTURES.

His emphasis last night was also on protecting this nation, our men and women in blue, and our armed forces who’ve put their lives on the line for all of us.

And what does Trump do at the end? He thanks all of us, THE PEOPLE, for giving him the opportunity to make the country great again, saying: “WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER”  

(a statement you will never hear from the Democrats)

THEY’RE BACK! ANTI-TRUMP, ANTI-REPUBLICAN, ANTI-AMERICAN MEDIA BACK IN “BUSINESS”

You heard the weatherman, there will be NO CHANGE.

Well, that didn’t take long.  Just one day after Congress came together on a baseball field---as a UNITED PEOPLE---the Liberal Press is back to the same old vile and pure partisan politics of all things LIBERAL.

From Mika and Joe at MSNBC, to Alisyn and Chris at CNN, the Washington Compost, the New York Slimes, and the rest of the liberal progressive media are all back to the same old, (and tired), biased lies, leaks, and “HILLARY DIDN’T WIN, SO WE’RE GOING TO SPEW OUR HATE & GARBAGE” for eternity.

Tweet these people, (or find their email addresses and write to them), keep it civil, and let them know the American Public is sick of their anti-President, anti-Republican trash.  Let them all know, they are not uniting this nation in a common cause, or the common interest of all Americans, and enough is enough.



(note: I’ll be updating this post throughout the day to provide proof that this sick liberal progressive media is contributing to the division of its people.) 


"THE RUSSIANS AREN'T COMING!, THE RUSSIANS AREN'T COMING!

For over seven months, the Russians have been coming.  Today, only one fact is certain, the Russians, (figuratively), climbed inside the Democrat's heads, and they got a ton of help from our own American Media, or, more specifically, the Liberal Progressive anti-Trump Opposition Media.

Already fully armed with the half-baked theory that the Russians had infiltrated the 2016 U.S. Election process, on November 9th, (the morning after Donald J. Trump had handily defeated Hillary Rodham Clinton), the devastated Democrats and their complicit media began their attempted coup d'é·tat, aka, the removal of a sitting President and, his acting government.

What has transpired over the past seven months, (from Nov. 9th to present), has become a national historical embarrassment never before witnessed in a Democratic Republic---where the ultimate power rests in its citizens, equally entitled to vote and elect their representative government---where a duly-elected President's rights of his office is being challenged, no, threatened by outside forces to nefariously and illegally overthrow/overturn the will of an electorate.

But, let me digress........

The Democrats and their complicit Media are playing a dangerous and dirty game---and the people know it.  The Russians are not our greatest danger to our Democratic Republic---the real danger is within our own Establishment who have yet to accept the results of a legitimate election.  Whether they like it or not, Donald Trump is moving forward with his agenda as the President of the United States.  Big things, and big changes are coming ahead for a great Nation and this great leadership.

What's not coming.........is the Russians.

A SERIOUS LOOK AT THE UNHINGED LEFT AND AN OUT OF CONTROL PARTY.

A few things stood out substantially after the near massacre of Republicans at the park, preparing for a charity baseball game.

On this day, (June 14th, 2017), the Liberal Media, (and many Democrats), obfuscated from their responsibilities to recognize a serious illness of the extreme left, who have abandoned the reality of human decency, or the respect for human life during the course of political debate.  

From Madonna-let’s blow up the White House, to Kathy Griffin’s Trump beheading, to the New York Times’-approved Shakespeare in the Park depicting the murder of our president, the violent left has crossed the boundaries of a civilized society, while becoming a third world oligarchy, absent of a moral conscience.

While we realize this nation is deeply divided ideologically, the rhetoric from the left has escalated beyond the civil boundaries of political discourse, to a point of actually acting out their disagreements by employing physical violence.

The ultra violent left is perilously devolving into a quasi-terrorist organization with the sole purpose of changing ideologies with the brutality witnessed in third-world countries where bloodshed is the norm.  

The Liberal Media will tell you this issue is about mental illness and the availability of guns, completely void of the level of hatred from the left, condoned by the Media, the arts, and the far left wing of the liberal progressive party, still unable to accept the results of a Presidential Election.

Much like the calling for moderate Muslims to speak up and out against the radical sector of Islamist, (who teach and preach the extermination of any society that does not adhere to their literal interpretations), moderate Democrats---and their complicit Liberal Media---MUST do a reality-check, and self-examination on their own radical wing of their party.

Political ideological discourse is expected in today’s atmosphere, but it must be met with civil debate and/or agreements to disagree.  But, a civilized society must not condone any form of violence in the course of these debates. These actions of the far left radical progressives must not be tolerated or condoned in any form, and it IS the responsibility of the Democratic Party to condemn these actions with impunity.  Making up excuses about the mentally ill, or gun control is a cowardly disingenuous choice in resolving the left’s unstable and unhinged radical wing bent on hatred to the point of violence.

Please, don’t insult us with this disdainful and despicable tactic.

Reckless Democrats Jeopardizing 2018 Election Cycle and Beyond

In what's becoming more apparent every day, the Democratic Party is digging themselves a hole on their 2018 Election outcomes and the chances of enhancing their representative numbers---from slim to none. 

Since the day Donald J. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Election, the party with no message has piled their political chips into a single ill-fated hand, and, after numerous months of investigations and testimony, they're beginning to look downright silly.

Case in point, was Senate Democrats yesterday interrogating the current Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who purposely agreed to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee---in an open public hearing---to clear up his impeccable name and reputation as a straight-shooting honest public servant. In his opening statement, Sessions left no doubt he was appalled at the, [Comey-induced], suggestion that he participated/colluded with Russian officials to help Trump get elected.

"I was your colleague in this body for 20 years, and the suggestion that I participated in any collusion or that I was aware of any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country, which I have served with honor for over 35 years, or to undermine the integrity of our democratic process, is an appalling and detestable lie."  

(For the record, the left-wing anti-Trump website Politico chose to edit out Sessions' preface of his tenure with his "fellow Senators")

But this didn't stop Senate Democrats, (who were prepared to question Sessions' integrity as Trump's AG), as each Democrat took their turn impugning his testimony.  The only thing Democrats were interested in, was how and why Sessions made the decision to participate in Comey's firing, and, why the AG was "stonewalling" by not revealing privileged conversations with the President.

In the process, Senate Democrats made total asses of themselves.  Starting with Vice Chairman Angus King,(Maine), and followed by Ron Wyden,(Ore.), Martin Heinrich (N.M.), Kamala Harris (Calif.), these politicians DID NOT GIVE A DAMN about Russian interference in the election.  They were more concerned about Comey's private one on one meetings with Trump, (before the FBI Director was fired), and the conversations Sessions would not reveal to the panel.

And to be perfectly clear, neither Democrats nor the Liberal Lamestream Media appear to understand the concept of privileged conversations with a President. Or, even though they do understand it, they're preference is to belligerently ignore it.

To put an "exclamation" on the this hilarious investigation---a bogus accusation in search of a crime---Senator Tom Cotton put the Democrats in their much deserved place with his time questioning Mr. Sessions:



“Do you like Jason Bourne or James Bond movies?” Cotton asked Sessions during the Senate hearing Tuesday. “Have you ever in any of these fantastical situations heard of a plot line so ridiculous that a sitting United States senator and ambassador of a foreign government colluded at an open setting with hundreds of other people to pull off the greatest caper in the history of espionage?”

Tom Cotton's opening question/statement, (that revealed the Senate Democrat's intentions), succinctly points out the dilemma the Democrats have placed themselves in, in their line of questioning; the omission of questions pertaining to this investigation---namely, did Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions, or any of his campaign surrogates collude with Russian officials to effect the outcome of a Presidential Election?

After seven months of intelligence investigations, (including the Obama-directed FBI investigation), Senate and House committee hearings, one thing is becoming crystal clear---there has been NO EVIDENCE produced by these bodies of any collusion, obstruction, or a cover-up on the part of the Trump Administration, NONE, ZERO, ZILCH, NADA---END OF STORY.  Or, at least it should be.

The Democrats have ridden this dog-hunt and their horses into the ground.  As this next election cycle rolls around, it will be the Democrats who will have to defend their actions and false accusations to the voting public, and their outright obstruction in participating in their elected duties to produce legislation for their electorate.  When Democrats return to their districts during the summer recess, telling their constituents, "we found no evidence of collusion, but we did attack the President and his Attorney General while making complete asses of ourselves---aren't you proud of us?"  Oh, "and can you vote for us, since we've done nothing to enhance your life?"

These delusional Democrats and their complicit Liberal Media are still thinking they can remove a sitting, duly elected President, while wasting all of their political capital on a scurrilous, contemptible, and un-provable witch-hunt, never witnessed in the annals of American Politics.

At this pace, the Democrats will be like lambs to a slaughter-house next year, shellacked, schlonged, skewered, and ready for the dinner table.  Please chew slowly.

TRUMP VS. THE DEMOCRATS---IT'S ALMOST NOT FAIR

The Mainstream Liberal Media is frightened to death that Trump might fire Bob Mueller.  Given Comey’s testimony, (and the confirmations that 1), Trump has never been under investigation, [of this Media-generated Russian Collusion joke], and 2), all testimony from both Comey and intel officials that NO ONE HAS INTERFERRED OR OBSTRUCTED these investigations), the question must be asked: Why Meuller and his team of attack dogs?

The biased statement that oozed out of Comey’s face, claiming his sole purpose for leaking his memos was to force the appointment of a special counsel, reeks of retribution and vengeance, not the resolve to expose the truth.

Seven plus months of investigations, and Comey had zero evidence of collusion.  In every Presidential transition, the incoming team immediately begins contacting and developing relationships with foreign governments. Under the guise of the “Russian Election Interference”, Democrats and their complicit media have latched onto a phony conspiracy theory that EVERY CONTACT by Trump’s people as some kind of collusion/plot vs. a legitimate election victory. General Flynn had contacts with Russians---big frikken deal!

There is NO COLLUSION.  There is NO OBSTRUCTION.  The people know it, Comey knew it, hell, even the Democrats and the Media knows it, yet, they took a weak hand and ran with it, thinking they could snare Trump in a cover-up---which never transpired.

The Liberal Media was visibly shakened and sickened yesterday to see Trump’s cabinet members praising OUR PRESIDENT for putting a coalition together that are united in transforming a seriously flawed central government, ending the “business as usual” mentality of the D.C. Establishment, and confirming his mission to return the ultimate power back to the states, and the people. 

The D.C. Establishment, the Democrats, and their complicit media have gone “all-in” with a pair of deuces, while the President is holding a full-house. He’s known all along they’ve been huffing, puffing, and bluffing, and, like the shrewd poker-player, he’s strung the hand out to capture the huge pot of chips, snaring his adversaries and political enemies in a game they thought was “fixed” in their favor.  


The Democrats played dirty.  The Media played dirty. Together, they've plotted to overthrow a sitting and duly-elected President employing every dirty trick in their book---and they still lost.......again.

It's almost not fair.

A TALE OF TWO POLLS---A CLEAR CONFLICT OF INTEREST

Gallup vs. Pew

The Washington Examiner has a story out suggesting Democrats are “poised for huge election wins” based on Party Affiliation.  Of course the Examiner bases their story on a recent Gallup Poll showing---ready for this---a four-point drop in overall Republican Party affiliation, since December 16th.  Of course, Gallup only polls Republicans and Democrats, leaving out unaffiliated independents who voted for Trump.  In the poll, Gallup does point out the Democrats “affiliation” has not grown, only that Republicans have dropped. 

Given the plethora of the Mainstream Media’s all out assault on the President, and the non-stop drumbeat of the Fake Trump/Russian/Collusion bullshit, it’s no wonder Gallup found their desired narrative, or that the Examiner regurgitated it.

But, take heart.  Justin Haskins at the Blaze reported a Pew Research Poll that completely conflicts with Gallup’s “summation”:

Study suggests Democrats could be in big trouble in 2018 ~ Justin Haskins Jun 4, 2017 5:50 pm

“A new study produced by the Pew Research Center has found that from December 2015 to March 2017, voters in a key voting demographic were more likely to remain loyal to the Republican Party than people who identified as Democrats were.

According to the study, released on May 17, 86 percent of Americans in the 50-64 demographic continuously identified themselves as Republican from December 2015 to March 2017. Only 72 percent of Democrats in the same demographic continuously remained tied to that party. According to the study, 10 percent of Democrats aged 50-64 stopped identifying as part of the Democratic Party at some point but returned, while 14 percent switched to the Republican Party and did not return. The results showed nearly identical results for Democrats and Republicans in the 30-49 demographic and the 65 and older demographic.”

So, there you have it---two polls, two different narratives/perspectives.  It’s not really difficult to admit Trump’s numbers have fallen since his victory---4-6 points, depending on who’s polling---nor is it difficult to understand who’s driving his numbers down.  The GOP-E (ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS) are frightened to death to hitch their wagons to the President, his agenda, or his policies, and most of us know they’re directly responsible for hindering the progress, specifically, the "do nothing" Republican-controlled U.S. Senate.  

Yes, I'm talking to you, Mitch!  You and your directionless "leadership" are becoming a joke.  And, the people are not blind to your feckless leadership and cowardly resolve to NOT PASS LEGISLATION.

And, make no mistake, the Ryan-controlled House is just as complicit as the Senate in not moving Trump's---AND THE PEOPLE'S---agenda forward.

It's bad enough that we, THE PEOPLE, have to put up with the Liberal Media's, and the Democrat's daily assaults on our President---that was expected.  But, for Republicans and Conservatives to watch their own representatives turn their backs on Mr. Trump is reprehensible.  

I'd wager if faithful Donald Trump supporters were polled with the simple question: "How do you feel your Party is doing in accomplishing the goals and agenda of President Trump's campaign promises?", the overwhelming result would be "severely disappointed". 
I'll post the results and percentages as soon as they develop.

Note: Please feel free to leave a "disqus-friendly" comment below this post---keep it civil.

Rov’s Monday Musings……

In the “no evidence” department:

Susan Rice: There’s no evidence that Trump’s travel ban will keep Americans safe.  (Seriously Susan?  You mean like the “no evidence” of a terrorist attack in Benghazi?  Are we supposed to wait until there is evidence that a JV team made it to our soil?  BTW, I’m waiting for the liberals to have a “hug a terrorist” week, after all, all they need is love.

Edit: To be fair, Susan Rice’s statement was “a Muslim ban will not make the U.S. safer”, which again is the liberal’s way of twisting narratives to suit their purpose*.  No where in Trump’s second EO is the word Muslim, yet the media and Democrats hammer the “Muslim Ban” as if it’s written in the Ten Commandments.

* Case in point, since Mr. Trump’s removal of this nation’s obligation to the Paris Climate Accord, the bullshit media has been endlessly promoting the idea that Trump, (and Republicans), think “Climate Change” is a hoax.  Yet the cowardly media WON’T even go near the actual debate/argument about AGW, ie man-made impact on the globe, obviously, because they know their “data” is seriously flawed. 

In the Sensitivity Training department:

TBS edits out “by terrorist” in letter Marty writes to Doc in Back to the Future.

And, talk about “sensitive”, have the Brits released the names of the terrorist----YET?  Or, could they be of some sort of Muslim decent?

In the “show me some dirt” department:

“Do you have something damaging on our president?” Ms. Kelly asked the Russian leader, who listened to a translator through an earpiece.

“This is just another load of nonsense. Where would we get this information from? Why, did we have some special relationship with him? We didn’t have any relationship at all. There was a time when he used to come to Moscow. But you know, I never met with him,” Mr. Putin replied.

“We have alot of Americans who visit us. Right now, I think we have representatives from a hundred American companies that have come to Russia. Do you think we’re gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something? Have you all lost your senses over there?” Mr. Putin asked.

(At this point, Kelly could have said: “Well, yes, Mr. Putin, as a matter of fact, we’ve, [the liberal media] have indeed lost all of our senses since November 8th” or, “My hatred for the President runs deep Vladdy, but that’s another story, what I want from you now is some solid dirt”)

In the “yeah, but LBJ had a triple-double too” department:

As the Warriors went up 2-0 in the NBA Finals thumping the Cavs 132-113.  Also mentioned: KD going to the Warriors diminishes his first “possible” Championship Ring---by joining an already power-house team---a credible argument, but does anyone think Durant cares?

BREAKING! SOURCES SAY..............

Sources say there’s a big shake-up happening at CNN. Zucker reportedly wants more Russia stories---demands back-channels.

Sources say CNN’s top reporters are seeking back-channels with Russian govt. officials---”just make something up” reportedly heard by intel officials who asked to remain anonymous.

Sources say Susan Rice un-masked names of prominent journalist who were colluding with Russian officials to create dirt on President Trump.

Sources say Russian “derogatory statements” are made up to defame Trump and stall his programs.  Sources, (who’ve asked to remain anonymous), also say CNN knows the information are fabrications, but ran with their stories to feed their lemmings who supported Hillary Clinton.

Sources say MSNBC and CNN are frustrated that none of the leaks bleeding out of the intel community have proved any Trump/Russian Collusion.

Reporting for CNN, Susan Hennesy says: Back-channels are “covert operations”----sources say she’s certain her convictions are legitimate, despite the lack of facts.

See how this works?

Note: unlike the Mainstream Liberal Anti-Trump Media, (who make things up on a daily basis and back them all up with un-named sources), this post is a total fabrication of events. I have no intention, (nor do my "sources") of slandering professional Networks or Journalist who are just doing their jobs to inform the public. (insert extreme sarcasm) Unlike the MSM, I have no agenda, other than to inform my readers that publishing stories completely based on un-sourced sources has become a parody of insanity, and not worth reading. Professional Journalism is dead.

Comments, (provided by the Disqus System) are welcome.

Update: From more "reliable" sources:


Breaking!  Liberal Media endorsing removal of Washington from Mt. Rushmore----insist he killed British ancestors.  Sources say they have documents proving Washington intended to wipe out a race of over-taxing monarchist in a revolutionary tactic designed by his treasonous and seditious friends, (also known as the Founding Fathers), to overthrow an acting government.  Sources also say Washington was overheard saying he intended to make America Great Again and he may have intentionally colluded with Russians for support.

MEMORIAL WEEKEND

In Loving Memory:




My father, (who passed away in 1986), landed at Guadalcanal as a U.S. Marine Corporal and “made it” through the first month basically unscathed.  Over the years, he would say little to his family about this landing or the battles that ensued.  Later in life, my uncle told me he had lost his best friend shortly after the initial landing and witnessed many of his fellow Marines never getting off the beach and the jungle fighting was intense.

“Japanese troops landed on Guadalcanal on July 6, 1942, and began constructing an airfield there. On August 7, in the Allies’ first major offensive in the Pacific, 6,000 U.S. Marines landed on Guadalcanal and seized the airfield, surprising the island’s 2,000 Japanese defenders. Both sides then began landing reinforcements by sea, and bitter fighting ensued in the island’s jungles.”

In six separate Naval battles around the island, the Japanese had deployed 36,000 reinforcements, while the U.S. Navy managed to deploy 44,000 and eventually overwhelmed their enemies.  The Japanese exited the island in February of 1943 with only 12,000 remaining troops “while the Americans sustained 1,600 killed, 4,200 wounded, and several thousand dead from malaria and other tropical diseases.”

Not long after this initial landing, my father caught a severe case of malaria and was transferred/hospitalized in Sidney, Australia for a long bout of recovery/rehabilitation.  He would later speak about the kindness and admiration the Aussie’s had for the American soldier.

Shortly after the war in the Pacific was coming to an end, my father was offered $5000 to re-up and report to Korea in that conflict.  He turned down that offer, came home, and began courting my mother. They married in (insert date), and produced six wonderful children, (including one handsome Spartan).  At 91, mom is still with us, and you can’t get her off the dance floor at weddings or parties.

I am proud, grateful, and thankful for my father’s service to our country, and that he made it home in one piece, while many of his fellow jarheads made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of this great Nation. They are, and forever will be my heroes.

NOT “ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN”---WHY DONALD TRUMP WILL SURVIVE, WHERE NIXON DID NOT. (PART ONE)




(Editor’s note:  Because of the extensive length, this article will be posted in 2-3 parts, if necessary.  Part one will cover the day of the 2016 Presidential Election forward to the current status of this Presidency. (I’m certain there’s much left out, and I reserve the privilege to insert “other material” or links as needed, and will note the edits at the bottom of each post).  In part two, I will attempt to expand on how much today’s all-out assault on this President completely differs from the resignation of President Nixon, where there are far more "players" than just Woodward and Bernstein. And, there is no cover-up of a criminal action.  There is, however a strong possibility that this whole Trump/Russian/Collusion Conspiracy was created by "Hillary's men". Part three will cover the ramifications and the responsibilities that will be placed on the offending party, “if” and when the truth comes to light that Hillary Clinton’s loss did indeed produce a WITCH-HUNT, not witnessed in modern times, by the Democratic Party, the Washington Establishment, and the Mainstream Liberal Media in an attempt to discharge a sitting U.S. President.)

Onward............... 

In one of the most stunning upsets in U.S. Presidential Elections, (especially to the Democratic Party and the Liberal Media), Donald J. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President on November 8th, 2016.  From that day forward, the left has yet to come to terms with the election results by 1) calling for numerous election recounts, and attempting to literally invalidate/steal electoral college votes---all that proved futile, and 2) founded/created a boogeyman to explain their candidate’s loss.  It must be noted that President Trump defeated candidate Clinton in the Electoral College 304-227.  Out of 3,141 counties in the U.S., Trump won 3,084 to Clinton's 57.  Hillary Clinton did win the popular vote, (including the illegal votes, which will not be covered in this story)

The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming!

In total shock of the election results, (and, the so-called Russian interference/meddling in the process), the Democrats, the D.C. Establishment, and their complicit Media, have mounted a campaign to remove a sitting, and duly-elected President.  At the premise of their campaign---Donald Trump and the Russian Government Colluded to defeat Hillary Clinton.  Not to be left out of this equation/campaign, on December 9th, outgoing President Barack Obama ordered the Intelligence Community to open a full investigation into the Russian’s involvement.  Later, Obama would revise an intelligence sharing method by an executive order. 

The United States Intelligence Community, a federation of 16 separate United States government agencies that work separately and together to conduct intelligence activities is headed by the Director of National Intelligence, DNI, who, at the time was James Clapper. (John Brennan was also involved as the Director of the CIA)

On January 6th Clapper and the Intelligence Community released a declassified version of their report/findings that confirmed Russian interference, but no actual compromise of voting machines or the election process/results.  The IC’s report also indicated the Russian Government “developed a preference” for Trump:

“We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump,” the report said. 

With this “new information”, the Democrats, the D.C. Establishment, and their complicit Media believed they had their “smoking gun”, stretching out the report to conclude/surmise that the favoritism towards Mr. Trump MUST MEAN COLLUSION.  How the hell they arrived at this assumption or the validity of it, is at the very heart of their conspiracy theory---interference, collusion, and now the big one, a cover-up.

Under further pressure from the left, (and the full weight of the Democrats, the D.C. Establishment, and their complicit Media---which, from this point on, I will refer to as the “ATOM”: Anti-Trump Opposition/Media---the Republican-controlled House & Senate have opened investigation committees to look into the extent of the Russian involvement in an American election, including “if” the Trump Campaign directly colluded with the Russian Government to facilitate Trump’s victory.

It must be noted, that shortly following the release of the DNI report, CIA Director James Clapper said in an on-camera interview and in testimony before a Senate Select Committee, that, to date, he found NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION between the Trump campaign and the Russian Government. On May 8th, the Washington Examiner released this report:  

"James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence, told a Senate Judiciary subcommittee on Monday that he still has not seen any evidence of any kind of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian foreign nationals.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-N.C., asked if Clapper's prior statement was correct, when he said on NBC that there was "no evidence' of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. When asked if that is still accurate, Clapper said Monday, "it is."


On NBC weeks earlier, Clapper said, "We did not include any evidence in our report, and I say, 'our,' that's NSA, FBI and CIA, with my office, the Director of National Intelligence, that had anything, that had any reflection of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians. There was no evidence of that included in our report."


Yet on May 13th, CNN posted this alternative/fake news story:

"James Clapper on collusion between Russia, Trump aides: There could be evidence"

With Attorney General Jeff Sessions prematurely recusing himself, (under pressure from the left, because Sessions had actively campaigned with Mr. Trump), the Department of Justice essentially hand-cuffed themselves, but the FBI and the NSA were fully involved.

Around the 20th of March, during testimony at a congressional hearing FBI Director James Comey confirmed there was an ongoing investigation into Russian interference, but did not, and would not specify or confirm there was an investigation on President Trump.

During the final days of the Obama administration, Barack Obama issued an executive order that expanded the powers of the NSA---the sharing of intelligence information among the other 16 intelligence agencies:

"The new rules were issued under section 2.3 of Executive Order 12333 after approval by two Obama Administration officials: Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Director of National Intelligence Director, James Clapper." (link)

The ensuing dissemination of "intelligence" unleashed an unprecedented volley of leaks within the Obama administration, and continues unabated to this day.

On the 9th of May, President Trump fires FBI Director James Comey for a plethora of reasons, (the least of which is his constitutional right to do), and the ATOM goes bizzerk. Despite the hypocrisy of the Democrat's call for Comey's removal shortly after Clinton's loss, suddenly, the narrative changes to "how dare this President perform his executive right while under investigation", (an accusation that to date, has yet to be confirmed or substantiated).  The faux outrage that ensued was wall to wall indignation, and the leaks poured out of the Trump White House like a worn out dam.





Enter, The Washington Post & The New York Times, aka the anti-Trump opposition Media…………  

Though a series of leaks, (much of it both classified and illegally transferred), the Washington Post and the New York Times began publishing stories in the vain of Watergate---complete with unverified and unsourced material---accusing the President of everything from obstruction of justice to high crimes and misdemeanors.  The "stories" became so intense, some in the Democratic Party were calling for impeachment with still NO EVIDENCE:

No Evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion... James Clapper (DNI)

http://www.theamericanmirro...

In an extensive editorial opinion, (written by the Wall Street Journal and titled: Comey’s Deserved Dismissal), the WSJ lays out the many reasons for Comey's dismissal:

"President Trump fired James Comey late Tuesday, and better now than never. These columns opposed Mr. Comey’s nomination by Barack Obama, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Director has committed more than enough mistakes in the last year to be dismissed for cause.

Mr. Trump sacked Mr. Comey on the advice of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a former U.S. Attorney with a straight-up-the-middle reputation who was only recently confirmed by the Senate. In a memo to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Mr. Rosenstein cited Mr. Comey’s multiple breaches of Justice Department protocol in his criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material.


The FBI isn’t supposed even to confirm or deny ongoing investigations, but in July 2016 Mr. Comey publicly exonerated Mrs. Clinton in the probe of her private email server on his own legal judgment and political afflatus. That should have been the AG’s responsibility, and Loretta Lynch had never recused herself."


“It is not the function of the Director to make such an announcement,” Mr. Rosenstein wrote. “The Director now defends his decision by asserting that he believed Attorney General Loretta Lynch had a conflict. But the FBI Director is never empowered to supplant federal prosecutors and assume command of the Justice Department.”


Mr. Rosenstein added that at his July 5 press appearance Mr. Comey “laid out his version of the facts for the news media as if it were a closing argument, but without a trial. It is a textbook example of what federal prosecutors and agents are taught not to do. (all emphasis mine)

With the firing of James Comey, and the unsubstantiated, (sources that may never be revealed) reports that the President "told Comey to back off on investigating General Flynn", Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein makes the move to appoint a Special Counsel to take over the investigation of Russian influence in the Presidential Election.  

From The Hill:

"The Justice Department has appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russia's involvement in the U.S. election, a momentous step that darkens the legal cloud hanging over President Trump’s White House.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the appointment of Mueller, a former prosecutor who served 12 years at the helm of the FBI and is respected on both sides of the aisle.


"My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted. I have made no such determination. What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command."  (link) (again, all emphasis's are mine)

While the Hill’s Katie Bo Williams contends, (fictitiously), that the appointment "darkens a legal cloud" over this White House, it can, and will be debated among the pundits if the appointment brings about a positive and focused investigation that could benefit the President, or produces nightmares, if the investigation stretches beyond the scope of Mueller's directives stated above.

Currently, it is all understood perfectly where Mr. Trump stands on this issue:
