Las Vegas Paddock: Obama Dimocrats, Dreamers, Ready To Lose

The do-nothing Republican Congress does not have to do a thing to win in 2018 and 2020. That’s because Obama Dimocrats will make GOP big wins in 2018 and the reelection of President Donald J. Trump the only choice for normals.

We don’t think the do-nothing GOP congress will pass tax cuts, let alone tax reform. ObamaCare repeal? We doubt it. Immigration anything? Um, no. We don’t think they will have to do a single damn thing. Yet, the GOP will win big in 2018 and even bigger in 2020.

We are as convinced now in October as we were early this year and throughout the rest of the year when we forecast big GOP wins in 2018 and 2020. Our forecasts and reasons are indisputable.

Obama Dimocrat sponsored polls blare out the warning, “Turning out the base, the data suggests, is simply not good enough.” President Trump will run on “Keep America Great” in 2020. As we wrote “it will be the Kooks versus the “normals”.”

Obama Dimocrats are focused on Russia excuses for why they lost. This as “The Great Trump is on track to great electoral victories in 2018 and a 2020 reelection.” Why does President Trump win? Because of the great respect from Jerusalem and Arab capitals. The schlonging of wasteful NATO. All of this leads to what Roll Call magazine headlines, “Latest Roll Call Ratings Show Tough Road to Majority For Democrats“.

Again, why? Because the “normals”, “They see a Democratic Party lurching further to the left and practicing pure obstructionism to appease its inflamed base.”

And of course, Celinda Lakes’ shocker polls/focus groups, New study projects stunning drop in 2018 millennial voter turnout in battleground states. It’s over for Trump, he wins bigly.

After the Las Vegas shooting it becomes even more obvious that the Obama Dimocrats don’t have a clue how to talk to normals.

* * * * * *

Hillary Clinton again made more ridiculous charges designed to rile the kook left to support her. That will never happen. No matter how Hillary displays her deranged and unhinged mind to the kooks, the leftist kooks will always hate her.

Hillary Clinton last week made a suggestion on Puerto Rico relief (Hillary demanded President Trump order the hospital ship USS Comfort to Puerto Rico even though President Trump had long before ordered the USS Comfort to Puerto Rico). She’s unhinged and unaware of her surroundings and current news.

So deranged is Hillary Clinton that even the Bezos Washington Post which loves “gun control” mocked her assertions after the Las Vegas shooting by what appears to be a loon son of an F.B.I. ten most wanted pop.

Hillary Clinton is not alone in her deranged Las Vegas mutterings. Loons such as Senator Chris Murphy, Mike Bloomberg, Senator Blumenthal, Senator Pocahontas Warren, and Congressman Himes, all jumped inside the kook-kook clock to chime about gun control. Gun control works only on law abiding citizens, but don’t tell these self-interested anti-Trump kooks that.

These kooks, Hillary Clinton included, don’t know how to talk to or about normals. Today, even the New York Times‘ David Leonhardt admits this immutable truth about Obama Dimocrats and the latest anti-America crusade by the left on the football field:

The choice between kneeling and winning [snip]

And as someone who cheers when Stephen Curry or Von Miller speaks out and makes the president look small, I’ve reluctantly become convinced that many athletes are making a tactical mistake.

Yes, the athletes and their allies can make nuanced, genuine arguments about why kneeling during the national anthem is not meant as a rebuke to the entire country. Liberals have rallied to their side, almost uniformly. I have the same instinct.

Winning over blue America, however, is a pretty modest goal. The kneeling argument needlessly alienates persuadable people, and it’s one the athletes don’t need.

It’s not just “athletes” making a tactical, rather, strategic mistake. It’s Obama Dimocrats. All these doofs manage to do is expand their cheering squads and votes in the encircled blue states; and give ammunition to the hordes of pro-Trump revolutionaries ready to take down the Hunger Games Capitol and capital cities filled with Obama Dimocrats. Meanwhile the normals continue to march on in support of President Trump:

CNN host John King said Sunday that NFL owners have data supporting President Donald Trump’s claim that television ratings have gone down because of players’ protests during the national anthem.

“NFL owners so far siding with their players for their right to free speech, but they’re also keeping close tabs on the financial impact and the public relations impact of this confrontation,” King said.

He went on to say that the NFL owners have research “clearly showing the president is right” when he claims the national anthem protests are one factor in TV ratings dropping.

“Since the president weighed in, the owners are now dealing with a surge in ticket holder requests for refunds,” King said.

For once CNN is not stating Fake News. And, to quote the Mets fans’ “Wait until next year.” Next year, around Labor Day, when the political campaigns go into full swing will also be the time the football season starts. Get ready for President Trump to beat the NFL into the ground in the next season of 2018. We can’t wait. President Trump will score a 2018 election touchdown in part because of the kneeling fumbles of the NFL.

David Leonhardt is not alone at the New York Times with his warnings of Obama Dimocrat Gotterdammerung. Repulsive Anti-Trump (and anti-Hillary) Frank Bruni tells the Obama Dimocrats to get ready, get ready, get ready… to lose:

Democrats, Please Get Ready to Lose

There’s a saying that what matters isn’t winning or losing. It’s whether you beat the spread.

But what’s the spread for Democrats in 2018?

Is the spread — which means the predicted margin of victory or defeat — gaining the 24 seats in the House that are necessary for a majority in the chamber? That’s certainly doable. I could argue that it’s probable.

But I could also make the case that Democrats fall five, 10 or 15 seats short. And I could imagine a demoralization that shadows and thereby dooms the party in 2020, when the stakes are even higher.

Is the spread control of the Senate? With just three turned seats, the Democrats have it. What promising math. But what a punishing map: There are more vulnerable Democrats up for re-election than there are vulnerable Republicans. Despite Donald Trump’s wackiness and the G.O.P.’s woes, Democrats could easily lose ground here.

Frank Bruni hates President Donald J. Trump. But the obvious even dawns upon the dead. Frank Bruni finally sees what we saw many months ago. President Trump triumphant! Obama Dimocrats humiliated again and eating their own bowels:

So the task ahead is twofold and tricky. They must move heaven and earth to wrest Congress from Republicans, who’ve demonstrated little backbone for standing up to an erratic, egomaniacal president in desperate need of containment.

But they must also, somehow, keep their expectations in check, because the long game is the White House, and it won’t be served by the acrimony and sense of futility that disappointment in 2018 could bring.

Howard Wolfson, who was one of the chief strategists for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, summed up the situation well.

He said that the House majority must be Democrats’ nonnegotiable goal, because it matters so much and is indisputably attainable. But if they don’t succeed, he added, “There will be a circular firing squad.” And it will be an especially furious one.

Progressives will point to moderates who lost their contests as definitive proof that the party should move left. Moderates will point to progressives who didn’t prevail and insist the opposite. And the infighting could be another lucky break for Trump, whose life story is already a fable of outrageous fortune.

Bill Clinton used to say that if you’re walking down the road and you see a turtle on a post — you can be sure the turtle did not get there by accident. The Frank Bruni totalitarian left wants to believe that 2020 will be “another lucky break for Trump” and continue a “life story” which “is already a fable of outrageous fortune.” President Trump was lucky to be born to his parents. But it is not “luck” to find him on top of the post, giggling. It was hard work and smarts that got Donald J. Trump into the White House.

Deep down, the totalitarian left and Frank Bruni understand that President Trump earned his 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue address. In 2016 they were with “her”. The American people are with “him” and Obama Dimocrats know the “him” is Trump. For all the happy talk about wins, Obama Dimocrats are losers and the know it:

“You have to shoot for the stars,” the Democratic operative Hilary Rosen told me. “You might just reach the moon.”

But even as Rosen said that, she hedged any prophecy of a rout, in a manner that spoke to the difficulty of properly calibrating optimism in 2018. She worried about Democrats’ policy agenda. She worried about the party’s tone. “I still think we lack a sunny, aspirational outlook,” she said. “We’re going down in the mud with Donald Trump.”

She added that the party wasn’t focused on change in the right, compelling fashion. “The change that Donald Trump was selling was blowing up the system,” she observed. “What’s our change? Is our change to patch up the system? Not very sexy.” [snip]

Two new directions that many progressives in the party have indeed latched onto — tuition-free college and single-payer health care — make some G.O.P. leaders’ hearts go pitter-patter, because they’re convinced that a majority of Americans, including many independents, aren’t ready for either, not when the cost is bluntly explained.

I think Democrats are making a huge, huge, huge mistake,” said one prominent Republican strategist who is carefully studying House races and may help steer a few of them. He expressed guarded confidence that the G.O.P. would hold onto its majority in the chamber, because, he said, the Democratic Party “is now being controlled by 20 people who are running for president, and that’s causing them to move too far left.”

He also marveled that Democrats had done nothing to take away one of Republicans’ most trusted targets: Nancy Pelosi. As long as she remains the Democratic leader in the House and Republicans can describe their opponents as servants of a San Francisco liberal in office for so many decades, they’re in good stead, he said.

For all his false bravado and excuses for why the GOP wins (gerrymandering) in 2018 which will lead to demoralized Obama Dimocrats losing again in 2020 (Bruni’s version of our Hiroshima and Nagasaki article) you can still smell the fear stinking from Bruni’s pores as he cannot comprehend why President Trump’s fights with the GOP establishment help President Trump and his army of normals:

I’m told that in some focus groups, when Republican voters are asked to name the leader of their party, most don’t mention Trump. He’s an unclassifiable entity in an orbit all his own. So while it’s possible that any disgust with the president will be taken out on the Republican lawmakers who curtsied to and coddled him, it’s not out of the question that those lawmakers would be regarded, and judged, separately.

Name another president in recent decades who publicly taunted and savaged peers in his putative party the way that Trump does. Name another president who was such an eager, audacious agent of disorder. There’s no tidy precedent for Trump, no historical model that snugly accommodates him. He proved that in 2016, and could prove it anew in 2018.

Those who look to the past to predict the current political moment do so at their folly,” said Representative Joe Kennedy III, one of the regional vice chairmen of the D.C.C.C. So while he told me that he’s enormously heartened by the quality of Democratic candidates being groomed for House races, he’s not placing wagers.

That’s wise, considering: Democrats must recover from a breathtaking decline, during the Obama years, of the party’s representation at every level of government below the presidency. The party holds only 15 of 50 governor’s offices. While Republicans control both the governorship and the legislature in 26 states, Democrats have that monopoly in just six.

“We didn’t get here overnight,” Rosen said, reverting to management-of-expectations mode. “I think it’s unrealistic to think we’re going to turn it around in a single election.”

Frank Bruni and his Obama Dimocrat ilk of numbskulls do not understand that President Trump’s fight with the GOP establishment is a feature, not a bug.

In 2018, the GOP winners of the primaries will be Trump supporters. Already Corker is gone and will be replaced by a Trump supporter. Jeff Flake will soon be gone either because he decides not to run or because he will be destroyed by Trump supporters in the Arizona primary. Trump hater John Kasich will be term limited out of the Ohio capital. Obama Dimocrat McCaskill in Missouri, Donnelly in Indiana, Sherrod Brown in Ohio – all will be replaced by Trump supporters in the U.S. Senate. Those who stand with Trump will win in 2018. Those who kneel against the Flag will lose in 2018. In 2020 Trump triumphant.

In Iowa, Obama Dimocrats can’t win even as they try deceive the voters now devoted to Make America Great Again President Trump:

Democrats in Iowa looking for ways to win back Trump voters

DES MOINES, Iowa — Iowa Democrats are looking for the prescription that will help them emerge from their withered condition, after dominating just a decade ago.

After sending progressive Tom Harkin to the Senate for 30 years and twice delivering the state for Barack Obama, Democrats are powerless in the House, Senate and statehouse, and remain stunned by President Donald Trump’s solid Iowa victory last year.

While it’s a familiar scenario across the upper Midwest, the pressure on Iowa Democrats to recoup the working-class voters who marched with Trump is more intense: They’re charged with setting the tone in a little more than two years for the party’s presidential nomination. [snip]

I think it starts with letting these working-class people know that we see them, we hear them and we know what they are going through, and we have a plan,” Ryan, from blue-collar Warren, Ohio, told The Associated Press on Saturday. [snip]

“We’ve lost touch with certain voters,” state party chairman Troy Price said. “We talk about issues, but not the values behind the issues. We haven’t done the best job communicating with the people we fight so hard for. It’s why we are where we are.” [snip]

“It’s difficult to go into the rural areas of Iowa and find anyone who will admit to being a Democrat.”

Tim Ryan says he wants to let “these working-class people know that we see them, we hear them”. But that is a lie. Obama Dimocrats are neither seeing nor listening to the working class in Iowa or anywhere.

Who are Obama Dimocrats listening to? Dreamers. Illegal aliens. Ungrateful illegal aliens who protest and wave alien flags in America while mocking the American flag. Obama Dimocrats won’t see or hear Americans because they are too busy obeying illegal immigrants who mock them anyway:

On ‘Dreamers’ Deal, Democrats Face a Surprising Foe: The Dreamers

WASHINGTON — As Democrats warily prepare to negotiate an immigration deal with President Trump, they face an unexpected political foe: many of the 800,000 young, undocumented immigrants threatened with deportation whom they are championing.

These ungrateful, un-American illegal aliens threaten American elected officials and Obama Dimocrats cower to the illegals. Ungrateful sons-of-bitches:

The pressure from some immigrant activists to reject any compromise that would tighten border security has frustrated Democratic leaders, who recognize the political risks of being labeled the party of open borders — a potentially lethal tag as they seek to regain support from working-class voters across the Midwest.

Fearful of concessions to Mr. Trump that could increase immigration enforcement aimed at their families and friends, the activists are targeting Democratic congressional leaders with loud political protests. And Democratic politicians may be vulnerable. They have already shifted to the left on a number of issues, such as health care, as they try to take advantage of liberal fervor stoked by the Trump era.

But moving too far to the left on border security could hold serious risks for a party that lost the presidency with defeats in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Iowa — all states where immigration remains a hot-button issue.

John Feehery, a Republican strategist, said a Democratic pushback on border security would reinforce “the perception that the Democratic Party has largely abandoned and forgotten about the white working class.”

The illegal immigrant Dreamers argued that since they came illegally to this country they were little bitty babies and now that they are in their twenties and thirties they demand, not ask, demand to stay. But they undermine their once-upon-a-time argument. Now they want the parents who violated the law and are illegal aliens themselves to be citizens. They are not “dreamers”. They are liars.

The Obama Dimocrats are now in a trap of their own making. Obama Dimocrats cared about illegal immigrants more than American citizens. Like treacherous snakes (remember Trump’s poetry readings of The Snake?) these illegal aliens now bite the Obama Dimocrats:

They have already signaled that they are willing to consider Republican demands for increased enforcement along the border with Mexico in exchange for a legislative fix to the threatened Obama-era program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, which protects young immigrants brought to the country as children.

It is naïve for us to believe that we will get 12 Republicans to vote for DACA or the Dream Act without putting something on the table,” said Senator Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, an original co-author of the Dream Act, which would offer a path to citizenship for certain undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children. “There’s always going to be a group that wants more. There are some people who want all or nothing. I consider this to be a world of reality that I live in.”

Democrats need to be mindful not just of white working-class voters but all voters, said Cornell Belcher, who worked as one of President Barack Obama’s pollsters during his 2008 presidential campaign. Democrats have to “thread a fine needle,” he said, because polls show that voters broadly “feel as though their borders need to be more secure.”

But activists worry that any compromise could carry a very personal price: Their own long-term safety might be secured only in exchange for an increased threat of deportation for their undocumented parents and friends who do not qualify for such protections under the program.

That is a deal that many of them are not willing to take.

“We are going to do whatever it takes to push both parties to pursue what we are demanding,” said Cristina Jiménez, executive director of United We Dream. “We don’t want a situation where my brother, who has DACA, will have relief from deportation, and we will have more enforcement and more ICE agents who end up going after my mom and my dad.” [snip]

Conservatives want those principles to include a call to limit the number of new legal immigrants and emphasize the entry of high-skilled workers instead of the family members of immigrants already in the country. They want to expand the “E-Verify” system to ensure that businesses do not hire workers who are in the country illegally. They are insisting on stepped-up immigration enforcement throughout the country’s interior. And they want Mr. Trump to get his wall along the southern border. [snip]

Immigration activists reject such demands as meanspirited and much too far-reaching. [snip]

Publicly, those young immigrants and their allies say they will not accept what they consider draconian measures in exchange for a deal on DACA, or on the Dream Act, the bill dating back to 2001 that would provide a pathway to citizenship for young immigrants brought in illegally as children.

Obama Dimocrats are surrounded by snakes draining them of their very blood. The white working class that has turned against their football millionaires is watching. The Trump supporters in Iowa are watching. The snakes are biting the swine:

Democrats also must weigh the political risk of being seen as weak on security issues as they try to recover from their 2016 losses.

During the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual conference last month, Kathleen Wells, a black radio host, challenged several members of Congress to explain why black Americans should embrace allowing more immigrants to remain in the United States who might compete with them for jobs.

The swine in the swamp are ready to lose. President Donald J. Trump will help them lose even more than they can imagine.

Las Vegas is a horrific bloody scene of carnage this October eve. The political carnage next November will be even bloodier.

  1. They can’t relate to the normals:

    A top legal executive at CBS, Hayley Geftman-Gold, said she “is not even sympathetic” for the victims of the shooting at a country music festival at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas Sunday night.

    “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing,” wrote Geftman-Gold on Facebook, perhaps referring to Sandy Hook. “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

    Later Monday, CBS announced that Geftman-Gold had been fired. [snip]

    CBS has a history of hostility towards Republicans. Shortly after the attack on the GOP congressional baseball team gravely injuring Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise in June, former CBS anchor Scott Pelley questioned whether the shooting was “foreseeable, predictable and to some degree, self-inflicted.”

    The original thread was deleted, but not by Geftman-Gold.

  2. They can’t relate to normals:

    CNN’s Jeff Zeleny inexplicably pointed out Monday after the Las Vegas shooting that many country music fans are likely Trump supporters.

    Shortly after Trump delivered prepared remarks to provide solace to victims of the deadliest mass shooting in United States’ history, CNN asked Zeleny, a senior White House correspondent, to analyze the speech.

    Zeleny said he found the speech to be “pitch perfect” but then asked people to “keep in mind” that many country music fans are Trump supporters.

    “Something else, I think, to keep in mind–a lot of these country music supporters are likely Trump supporters,” Zeleny said. “This is something, of course, hitting the tapestry of all Americans and there are going to be victims from across the country here.”

    Zeleny provided no context or explanation for the assertion that many of the victims may have been Trump supporters, so it’s not clear why he thought it was relevant to Trump’s remarks.

  3. Missed news that will help President Trump in 2018/2020:

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A measure of U.S. manufacturing activity surged to a near 13-1/2-year high in September as disruptions to the supply chains caused by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma resulted in factories taking longer to deliver goods and boosted raw material prices.

    Still, details of the Institute for Supply Management’s (ISM) survey on Monday underscored the economy’s underlying momentum, with factories reporting stronger order growth last month. A measure of factory employment hit its highest level since 2011. [snip]

    ISM said its index of national factory activity surged to a reading of 60.8 last month, the highest reading since May 2004, from 58.8 in August. A reading above 50 in the ISM index indicates an expansion in manufacturing, which accounts for about 12 percent of the U.S. economy. [snip]

    Discounting the hurricanes’ impact, the outlook for manufacturing remains bullish. Seventeen out of the 18 manufacturing industries reported growth last month.

  4. The idiot girl lawyer who got fired has a history:

    CARROLL GARDENS, BROOKLYN — Not two blocks from a packed polling site in Carroll Gardens, pro-Hillary Clinton voters — and who in Carroll Gardens wasn’t with her, in the end — were tickled to discover on Election Day a pair of intersecting street signs in the neighborhood that pointed toward a historic victory for the Democratic candidate.

    Two local filmmakers, Amanda Zinoman and Hayley Geftman-Gold, even planned a block party at the intersection of President and Clinton streets from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday night.

    “Come celebrate the election of our first female POTUS!” they wrote in their Facebook event description.

    Carroll Gardens resident and TV executive Anne Harris-Mathey told Patch in an interview on her stoop that she had knowledge a taco truck would be parked nearby President and Clinton streets Tuesday night to feed block-party attendees.

    “It’s very exciting to live near the corner of President and Clinton streets,” Harris-Mathey’s husband, Sean Mathey, said from beside her on the stoop.

    “Just be nice to our block,” Harris-Mathey urged anyone planning to show up.

    Zinoman, one of the organizers, told Gothamist earlier in the afternoon afternoon that she had obtained the necessary NYPD permit for the party (plus a “projector screen and sound system”), and that the whole block would be closed to vehicular traffic during the party.

    “We are expecting a large crowd, so please be safe, kind and respectful,” the party organizers wrote on Facebook. “The 76th Precinct will be patrolling for our protection.”

    They said they envisioned the event as “similar to Garden Place on Halloween — just a nice social gathering of like-minded people.”

    This was the turnout:

    A good time was had by all. Everyone went home at 10 p.m. on orders of the NYPD, Geftman-Gold told Patch.

    A mere two hours later, as the clock struck midnight, a Donald Trump presidency was looking more and more probable.

    “I’m curled up in a fetal position at home,” the event organizer said. “I’m crying into my laptop,” this reporter replied. There wasn’t much else to say.

    She’s back in a fetal position, after being aborted by CBS.

  5. What happened to CBS? Once the gold standard of journalism, the home of Edward R Murrow, Mr. Journalism Himself, has now become….I dontknow what.

    Today was an especially telling day. First, their attorney publicly stated that she seems to think that those of us who voted Republican should be murdered by a mass murderer. Ouch that’s harsh. Even if she does think that she should keep it to herself.

    And then CBS publicly stated that Tom Petty was dead when he WAS NOT DEAD. Causing a LOT of confusion. I mean, just what is going on over there?

    Mr. Petty’s family has now just released a statement, through his manager, a few minutes ago that he did indeed pass away this evening.

    But when CBS excitedly blabbed the news Mr. Petty had not yet left this world.

    This has been a horrible day. And CBS cannot handle the pressure. CBS please just close your doors and say bye bye. You are no longer needed anymore. Stop causing trouble. You are making everything worse.

  6. yes the normal people are watching what is going on

    imo…normal people see that the Democratic party is no longer normal, no longer not only not the party of FDR nor the “normal” moderate party of Bill Clinton…

    today’s Democratic party no longer represents “bleeding heart Liberals’ , the Dems now represent “hateful hearts” so narrow minded and lacking in humanity & empathy; complete with so called ‘Liberals’ that hate “the other”, or Trump supporters so much they want them DEAD…& they mean DEAD…

    first they set out to KILL Rep Steve Scalise, then Kathy Griffith severed PDT’s head, then the Central Park Play assassinated PDT, Antifa got its start during DT’s rallies & then expanded to stopping free speech on college campus with violence and spilling the blood of PDT Trump supporters, then the NFL disrespected our flag & national anthem with the full support of the Dems, etc., etc, etc..

    …and now we have Las Vegas, the killer has already been identified as a registered Dem in West Palm Beach when he lived there…

    …I suspect there is much more to come out about the Las Vegas killer…it is going to be very telling to see his story evolve…right now all the pundits, including Tucker, just cannot understand who this guy is & why he did what he did…the fact that they ALL keep saying “isn’t it bizarre that we have no idea what this guy is all about & why he did what he did” …like parrots…

    really? hint, he meticulously planned for days to go to Las Vegas to murder country music fans with rapid fire…sounds like a “clue” to me…

  7. S

    I understand their confusion, if I was a multimillionaire (bill ayers comes to mind, even if it was daddy’s money) , he had what seemed everything, and was 64, a little old for a rebel with a cause, but something snapped, was it the endless call to violence the left has been implementing? He was a grown ass adult and he had been around the block a few times and allows this to point him to mass murder? Doesn’t make sense. This took planning, and how convenient that the gf was out of the country in the Philippines, possibly he waited for that to implement the plan. He had been sending thousands of dollars recently there, to who, her family, maybe, but could be terrorists organization.
    Hell, he had bomb materials in his car, as bad as it was, what if he planted bombs all over Mandalay? All over the Strip? I can’t imagine.

  8. I love the Big Pink White House..
    Admin’s choice for header photo at Twitter is taking a turn today, too:

    “And this, Ladies and Gentlemen, is how disrespecting our country all started”.

  9. Pennsylvania had a lower middle class event similar to Las Vegas. Here’s a rough idea: 8.8.2017.This man had many anti-Trump signs in his yard. The man he killed was a member of the Republican Committee of Chester County Pennsylvania.[where there is a waywacked Tea Party group which helped railroad the first try at Trumpcare] The incident has been poorly reported and then quickly swept under a rug.

    Question for investigators: What was motive of 1) Carter Clayton ?
    2) Stephen Paddock? REGISTERED DEMOCRATS have seen more than their fair share of members who killed in seeming rages.
    I am hoping some of my FB readers will pick up on it.
    On Twitter I gave the malady a name: TrumpHate. Perhaps that won’t be misinterpreted.

  10. Right now Bill Nelson D-FL is on Foxnews saying he plans on bringing Puerto Ricans to live in FL. 100,000 or so he said. He also mentioned state of NY so DeBlasio is in on it too.
    Prior to the announcement there was the lecture to quit hating , quit politicizing even as Dems politicize Las Vegas. Guess it’s a war between LV and Puerto R.

  11. Big Media and law enforcement have been very cagey about revealing the motives of a multimillionaire 60+ year old who isn’t “into guns” according to his brother and who brings an arsenal inside a hotel designed to take out a lot of Trump supporters in a country music concert. Betcha they would have been very quick to label him a white supremacist within a few hours had he shot up a Madonna or Barbara Streisand concert full of progressive fans.

    The Left has always been about racial and social engineering to achieve their socialist goals, hence the progressive fascination with eugenics in the 1920s, which of course was adopted by the leaders of the National Socialist German Workers Party in Germany, their big push for population control measures in the Third World and minorities after WW2, moving Muslim migrants in huge numbers into Europe to alter the continent’s demographics and the Democrats’ own vigorous gerrymandering of congressional districts to hold onto power.

  13. The Mandalay Murderer probably stripped his assets before he went on his spree. Nothing to sue nor for defense lawyers to attach if the lived through it. Cash sent to wherever overseas, and they need to look at recent real estate sales and/or transfers especially his cash history. Professional criminals know to do this before law enforcement, prosecutors come knocking. Whomever was the recipients of his largess knew something was up with him. What did he tell them? And “professional gambling” is a very common cover for many crimes such as money laundering, drug running or transport (he had planes) or I suspect gun running since he had so many of them. He was reputedly an “accountant” which further indicates knowledge of how to move money or high ticket illegal contraband. Coming from a professional criminal family with a most wanted father and a brother who sounds like a pro-conman, negligible work history, he was into many rackets. The crazy explanation is not going to work with this one.

  14. The Hill published an article today about how the GOP establishment does not believe Steve Bannon will get more GOP establishment scalps. The article cites GOP establishment leaders who believe the Alabama results will not be replicated and that Alabama was not the beginning of a trend. Then these little gems pop up at the end of the article:

    But there’s one thing that all sides agree on: The Republican base’s anger with Republicans in Congress is palpable.

    One Senate GOP campaign manager pointed specifically to the failure to repeal and replace ObamaCare as a source of deep frustration within the base. Now that even full Republican control of Washington wasn’t enough to repeal the health-care law, despite years of promises, Republican primary voters could be willing to shake up the party once again.

    They want to see Trump’s reforms pass,” the campaign manager said.

    So as Republican incumbents work to insulate themselves from populist challenges over the coming months, they’ll have to be sure to directly address those concerns, not just paper over them with overwhelming air cover. Bannon has proved to be particularly good at that, Republicans say, but he doesn’t have to have a monopoly.

    The electorate was angry at Washington in 2016 and the electorate remains angry at Washington in 2017. … Any candidate who fails to appreciate voters’ anger is going to struggle in the midterms regardless of party and regardless of whether they have Trump’s support or not,” Conant said.

    The Republicans who will win the primaries and the general elections next year will be Trump supporters. The GOP establishment will be decimated. “Repeal and replace the GOP establishment!” will be the battle cry of 2018.

    “We must be ready to fight with words, actions, and if necessary, weapons to preserve the country and the values we have in common.”

    A Norwegian Army Chief has bucked the political correctness and multiculturalism that has northern Europe in its grip, and warned Europeans that they must be ready and willing to fight against radical Islam in order to preserve Western values.

    I think we must be ready to fight, both with words, actions – and if necessary weapons – to preserve the country and the values we have in common,” said Odin Johannessen in a speech to the Oslo Military Society last week, according to Freedom Daily.

    Europe can no longer expect to live in peace and security, without having to defend its interests and values,” he added, noting that well-trained and adequately-equipped soldiers would be crucial. “You can not win wars without having people on the ground,” he asserted.

    Freedom Daily notes that in an internal document uncovered last week, General Anders Brännström, the chief of the Swedish army, ordered his troops to prepare for a coming war in Europe against well-trained opponents.

    The global environment we are experiencing which is also demonstrated by strategic decisions [taken by politicians] leads us to the conclusion we could be at war within a few years,” wrote Brännström.

    Back in December, Swiss army chief André Blattmann warned that the threat of terrorism was heightening in Europe and that citizens should arm themselves.

    The threat of terror is rising, hybrid wars are being fought around the globe; the economic outlook is gloomy and the resulting migration flows of displaced persons and refugees have assumed unforeseen dimensions,”said Blattmann.

    Sales of firearms and other weapons have been surging in countries like Germany and Austria. In France, security forces have been preparing for mass civil unrest and for radicalized immigrants taking over neighborhoods. The French Army is making contingency plans for the “reappropriation of national territory,” in the event that immigrant populations obtain weapons and become more hostile to authorities, according to Freedom Daily.

    Fight for the West or die.

  16. I saw that article about Norway Admin, my heritage is in part Norwegian and I have a few friends there. Very liberal, I sent it to them.

    I hope they are waking up

    Trump will not allow the media to bully him. Reason #346755432277 he was elected POTUS.

  18. I think insightful good points were made by the posters below

    first, holdthem…I agree with you, that Penn murder by a neighbor of a Trump supporter got essentially NO coverage; any story or anyone that has hurt DT or his supporters has been buried & silenced… Fox barely brings any of it up; that man was murdered who heard about it…(are the pundits all as perplexed as they say right now re: LV killer or are they keeping mum on explosive info)

    Tony says had anything remotely been done by a Trump person against anyone it would be known & I agree, it would open every newscast all day long & be debated to death…a big story…

    and Mormaer provides good context as to what this killer has been up to & what his actions might explain (laundering, gun running, who knows at this point…I don’t even think “the brother” is all there, he even seems strange to me – for someone who says a lot about what his brother is not, he sure doesn’t seem to know what his brother really was)

    today I watched some of that Presser from Las Vegas, the police spokesperson gave little specifics but did indirectly indicate that much might be going on behind the scene…
    the “girlfriend” is now a ‘person of interest’

    and now the police & FBI have all the killers computers & harddrives, etc

    it remains to be seen what will be revealed and/or what will be leaked…but my bet is on some strange nefarious connections for the killer…I am leaning towards him being a Leftie, maybe ISIS inspired, but definitely something wrong going on with the money he is sending to Phillipines

    also today on the news they said that the killer has invested over $100,000 in preparing for his massacre…evidently he had the best guns, the best scopes, etc etc…lone wolf?? hmmmm…there is a lot to this story we do not know

  19. Yea, lots of strange stuff on the LV Killer. At first he was supposed to be a grandfather and now they say he was childless. Then there was the very credible young woman that says there was a Hispanic couple who were going around telling people that they were all going to die, 45 min before the killing started. The couple was run off, I guess by the concert workers.

    The sickie filmed himself during the shooting and now they say there is a note, but nobody has found a solid motive what what was done.

    I guess they finally decided his Philippine Australian girlfriend who left the country after the killings, is a person of interest.

    I think the thing was too organized and suspect it was perpetrated to bring down Trump. How many disasters can he handle at once and still DRAIN THE SWAMP?

    Good thing Trump thrives on adversity.


  20. France:

    PARIS — The French government on Tuesday moved a significant step closer to making permanent some of the emergency measures put in place after the terrorist attacks of 2015, expanding the powers of the security forces to combat terrorism in ways that critics say may also curtail civil liberties.

    The legislation, approved by a wide margin in the lower house of the French Parliament, codifies measures like search and seizure and house arrest without judicial review — steps once considered exceptional — and effectively institutionalizes a trade-off between security and personal liberty. [snip]

    The bill, President Emmanuel Macron’s first major piece of security legislation, would allow the government to lift the state of emergency imposed nearly two years ago while still being able to reassure the public that the state will exert, if anything, even greater vigilance.

    Critics say the measures included in the law lack sufficient judicial oversight, substituting instead the judgment of security forces whose suspicions could be based on faulty or thin intelligence. They say the new legislation could exacerbate racial profiling by law enforcement, undercutting Mr. Macron’s efforts to reach out to Muslims and minorities, both of whom could be disproportionately affected by the measures.

    The interior minister, Gérard Collomb, justified the legislation as “a lasting response to a lasting threat.” It is expected to take effect on Nov. 1, when the emergency law is scheduled to end. [snip]

    The legislation codifies, among other things, the power to restrict the movement of people if they are suspected of threatening national security or harboring terrorist ideas. Before the state of emergency, such decisions would be made by a judge. Similarly, the bill allows searches of private property at the request of a departmental prefect, a government official, rather than requiring review by a judge or prosecutor.

    The legislation also expands the areas where the police can set up checkpoints at will. It would allow them for up to 12 hours within a 14-mile perimeter around international airports, ports and train stations with international service. Under another expanded power, local officials may restrict access, without court approval, to a public place or event if they deem them vulnerable to terrorists. The restrictions could last as long as a month, with an option to renew. [snip]

    Far more potent as an antiterrorism measure was a law approved in 2015 that greatly expanded the surveillance and eavesdropping powers of the intelligence services, according to lawyers who study terrorism. [snip]

    Just this past Sunday, a knife attack at the train station in Marseille killed two 20-year-old women; a couple days earlier, what appeared to be an explosive device was found near an apartment building in Paris.

    “The French are confident that we are in a new era,” Mr. Fourquet said, one that requires the state to have more powers in order to protect them, even if it means diminishing some civil rights.

    France wakens too late and now threatens its own democratic system. The measures are better than ignoring the problems. But the “security” measures will corrode the French system of democracy. All of this is happening because France won’t take the steps necessary to remove the Islamic terrorists systems in France. Pity.

  21. Good news! Maybe Mike Pence feels the same way?

    Pence’s chief of staff floats ‘purge’ of anti-Trump Republicans to wealthy donors

    Nick Ayers urges donors to ‘form a coalition’ to take on GOP leaders and members who don’t back the president.

    Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff railed against congressional leaders in closed-door remarks to wealthy donors and called for a “purge” if GOP lawmakers don’t quickly rally behind President Donald Trump’s agenda. [snip]

    But Ayers reserved his harshest criticism for congressional leaders and members who have not offered full-throated support for the president.

    Just imagine the possibilities of what can happen if our entire party unifies behind him? If — and this sounds crass — we can purge the handful of people who continue to work to defeat him,” Ayers said, according to an audio recording of the remarks obtained by POLITICO.

    One attendee later asked how the donors could “rally the congressional delegation that does support the president and vice president, and rally them and push them to change the current leadership in both the Senate and the House.”

    I’m not speaking on behalf of the president or vice president when I say this,” Ayers responded. “But if I were you, I would not only stop donating, I would form a coalition of all the other major donors, and just say two things. We’re definitely not giving to you, number one. And number two, if you don’t have this done by Dec. 31, we’re going out, we’re recruiting opponents, we’re maxing out to their campaigns, and we’re funding super PACs to defeat all of you.”

    He continued, “Because, look, if we’re going to be in the minority again we might as well have a minority who are with us as opposed to the minority who helped us become a minority.”

    The crowd laughed and burst into applause.

    The remarks are some of the most extensive to emerge from Ayers, who joined the White House over the summer after initially opting to remain on the outside. A longtime adviser to Pence and a top aide on the 2016 campaign, he’s widely respected in Republican circles as a sharp-elbowed and strategic operative.

    The comments also offer a stark departure in tone from Pence’s team, with the vice president having often served the role of soothing tensions between the White House and Capitol Hill. The remarks reveal both a deep frustration within the White House with congressional leadership and a political tactic of placing the onus on Congress to advance the agenda on health care, tax reform and other legislative priorities that have failed to gain momentum.

    The approach has echoes of right-wing firebrand and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon’s preferred methods. Bannon has repeatedly railed against congressional leaders and accused them of being the main stumbling block to Trump’s agenda. And he has taken his show on the road, speaking out against incumbent Republicans. [snip]

    Ayers on Tuesday morning also expressed pessimism about the prospect of passing tax reform, the administration’s top legislative priority. He was asked how the GOP is going to get through the treacherous path to expansive tax reform.

    “The honest answer is, I’m not sure we’re on track to do that,” he responded. “I think the White House, I think the president and the vice president have shown extraordinary leadership. They’ve been incredibly clear on the framework that was agreed upon. … It was frankly much bolder than the path that we were headed down.”

    But, Ayers added, “here’s my skepticism: they had already passed health care bills to repeal and replace Obamacare in both chambers multiple times and couldn’t get that done. So, while there is a great framework in place, that will continue to grow the booming economy thanks to the president’s policies, I would ask them that question.” [snip]

    And he praised the president for his criticism of NFL players who kneeled during the national anthem as a form of protest.

    “Who would have ever said a couple years ago that a politician could take on the entire NFL and in one week, win. But by my count 183 players knelt on the national anthem nine days ago and 12 kneeled on Sunday,” he said. “Would that have happened if Hillary Clinton would have been president? No. You would have gone from 180 to everyone.”

    As the meeting came to a close, one female attendee asked if she understood Ayers’ message correctly, saying: “Are we all willing, in order to get the tax bill passed, to contact all the people we donate money to — which is a long list — and tell them the money stops coming if they don’t get something done!”

    The room burst into applause.

    Ayres is raising fears about the GOP losing in 2018 as a fundraising gimmick and also to create a sense of urgency. But on the rest of his analysis, he is repeating what we have written.

  22. Nick Ayers suggests a. good direction. Somewhere there’s a list of anti-trump donors. It includes Kelloggs and Ford among the biggest.
    But I came here to gripe about two flights leaving New York City today loaded with supplies and humans to help Puerto Rico. Those flights will return later today filled with evacuees. Shit.
    I figured there would be some process, some public statement first.
    My source is NBC NewYork which is financially and ideologically tied to Telemundo47.

    It also covered the early & surpriseTillerson announcement aired while Donald and Melania were 35K feet high headed toward Las Vegas. NBC tweeted about a previous “moron comment” and other malcontent state,emts at State, and seemed prepared to cover it live. But when the message was not what they’d hoped for, they just did a recap:
    David Usury “Tillerson said he’d never considered resigning from State Department..”

  23. Admin, this Audra has got it going,

    About time I might add, playing the “good cop” did absolutely nothing, and I might add, diminished Pence.

    It’s always about the money, always…

  24. Tillerson said much more , didn’t he HTA…
    He said he was in it for the long haul and that he and the State department were completely behind and supportive of the President and his agenda for America. His top priority was keeping America safe. He added I believe, that he thought the President was very smart, intelligent, not sure exact words, will try to get transcript.

    The Media keep lying about Tillerson, they clearly want his scalp and see it as a major blow to Trump.

  25. Thanks Foxy I was looking for that video of Sec Tillerson!

    And of course my phone changed Ayers to Audra… go figure.

  26. I was waiting for Tillerson to deny that he called Trump a moron. So I guess he considers him a smart moron. RT still works for EM with his what is good for EM is good for the Country refinery mentality. That is what is behind his conflicts with Trump. I hope Trump has been shlonging him, good.

  27. Leftist Slate “magazine” crying because the “Dream” deal is dying due to border security:

    “First and foremost,” Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, the chairman of the committee, said in his opening remarks, “any potential deal on DACA has to include robust border security, and by that, I don’t mean a wall.”

    This was the quote that garnered the most coverage and inspired some optimistic tea leaf reading. If congressional Republicans weren’t going to insist on a border wall as part of a deal to protect Dreamers, as per the “deal” Democratic leaders struck with President Trump last month, then a Dreamer-saving compromise would be much more assured.

    But the wall isn’t shaping up to be the problem. The problem is what Grassley brought up a few seconds later.

    Second, and equally as important as robust border security,” he said, “we’ve got to make sure any deal includes meaningful interior enforcement.” [snip]

    The agreement Trump made with Schumer and Pelosi—so they thought—would have been to pass the DREAM Act in exchange for non-wall border security measures. You know, drones and lasers and radar gizmos and stuff. But according to Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, an immigration hawk who was at the dinner on Monday night, “the president was very clear” that any deal should only pertain to those Dreamers who “have a DACA permit today,” a significantly lower number than the amount that would be covered under the DREAM Act, and that “it ought to include some kind of enhanced measures, whether it’s on the border or interior enforcement or what have you.” As Georgia Sen. David Perdue, a fellow immigration hawk who’s co-sponsored a bill with Cotton to reduce legal immigration, told me Tuesday, it was clear that any Dreamer deal he’d be willing to support would encompass “enforcement” on both the border and the interior.

    Ratcheting up the deportation apparatus to a new level is not what congressional Democrats signed up for when they engaged President Trump in finding a DACA replacement.

    Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy told me Tuesday that an insistence on ramped-up interior enforcement would be “a problem” for his caucus. [snip]

    Even if the Senate were able to resolve this debate later this fall, the bill would still run into further problems in the House. Conservatives within the House GOP are insisting that the wall be included in any deal to protect Dreamers, on top of all the other border security and interior enforcement provisions that Republican senators are demanding. While House Speaker Paul Ryan wouldn’t need the votes from his party’s conservative flank to pass a bipartisan deal, he’s not going to try to pass a bill without them. As Politico notes, “when Ryan became speaker, he promised his right flank that he would never make them vote on an immigration bill that doesn’t have the support of a majority of the majority.” Putting a Dreamers bill to the floor that conservatives don’t support could cost him his job.

  28. “Gun control” legislation is a phony, says a leftist from Nate Silver’s leftist site 538, published at the Washington Post:

    Before I started researching gun deaths, gun-control policy used to frustrate me. I wished the National Rifle Association would stop blocking common-sense gun-control reforms such as banning assault weapons, restricting silencers, shrinking magazine sizes and all the other measures that could make guns less deadly.

    Then, my colleagues and I at FiveThirtyEight spent three months analyzing all 33,000 lives ended by guns each year in the United States, and I wound up frustrated in a whole new way. We looked at what interventions might have saved those people, and the case for the policies I’d lobbied for crumbled when I examined the evidence. The best ideas left standing were narrowly tailored interventions to protect subtypes of potential victims, not broad attempts to limit the lethality of guns.

    I researched the strictly tightened gun laws in Britain and Australia and concluded that they didn’t prove much about what America’s policy should be. Neither nation experienced drops in mass shootings or other gun related-crime that could be attributed to their buybacks and bans. Mass shootings were too rare in Australia for their absence after the buyback program to be clear evidence of progress. And in both Australia and Britain, the gun restrictions had an ambiguous effect on other gun-related crimes or deaths.

  29. Federal Judge Upholds Trump’s Arpaio Pardon

    A federal district judge in Phoenix has accepted President Donald Trump’s pardon of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Wednesday, confirming that the controversial tough-on-crime sheriff and early supporter of Trump’s presidential bid will walk free with no legal record after being found guilty of contempt in July for refusing to honor a 2011 court order.


    Top GOP donors are reportedly angry over the Republican Party’s legislative failures, telling lawmakers their wallets are closed until something passes through the chambers.

    Thomas Wachtell, a longtime party donor, confronted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) about getting a legislative win during a recent dinner at the home of Los Angeles billionaire Robert Day, Politico reported Thursday, while pointing to two dozen attendees who witnessed the testy exchange.

    Wachtell told the news outlet that McConnell reacted defensively, telling him that passing legislation is a longer process than President Trump seems to understand.

    “Anybody who was there knew that I was not happy. And I don’t think anybody was happy. How could you be?” Wachtell, a former oil and gas investor, told Politico.

    “You’re never going to get a more sympathetic Republican than I am. But I’m sick and tired of nothing happening,” he continued.

    Wachtell, who previously gave $2,000 to the majority leader, has stopped the flow of donations that once previously went to Senate GOP causes, according to the report.

    “The GOP leaders should know, no movement on remaining agenda: tax reform, infrastructure, deregulation, etc. means no funding from supporters like me,” one angry donor said to a longtime Republican fundraiser in an email forwarded to Politico. “No meetings, calls, contributions until we see progress.”

    The report comes after Republicans have turned their attention to tax reform after repeatedly failing to pass a new health care bill that repeals or replaces ObamaCare, with the latest Graham-Cassidy measure failing to gain enough support to even get to the Senate floor late last month.

    As the GOP agenda stalls, party contributors are slowing down their cash donations until the lawmakers start showing they can get results and keep their key promises to undo Obama-era measures.

    With the 2018 midterms just around the corner, GOP lawmakers are trying to reassure the donors that they can deliver.


    Virginia Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D) is bearing the collective hopes and fears of an anxious Democratic Party in the race to replace term-limited Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), a race that has become the most significant contest on the November ballot.

    But public and private polling shows Northam barely ahead of former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie, despite a raft of structural advantages that should put wind in the Democrats’ sails.

    That has some party operatives worried that, a month before Election Day, the party could lose one more governor’s mansion. [snip]

    Public surveys show Northam has at least a small edge – Gillespie has not led a public poll since March, and Northam has led all but two of the 13 polls conducted since the June 13 primary; the other two showed a tied race.

    Beleaguered Rep. Murphy Resigns from Congress

    Mary Chastain | 10/5/2017 – 4:32pm
    Texts from his mistress allege he tried to convince her to have an abortion.

    I blogged this morning that Rep. Tim Murphy decided to retire at the end of his term after details about his affair came to light, including texts from his mistress in which she accused him of trying to convince her to have an abortion.

    House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) announced that he received a resignation letter from Murphy. From Politico:

    “This afternoon I received a letter of resignation from Congressman Tim Murphy, effective October 21,” Speaker Paul Ryan said in a statement. “It was Dr. Murphy’s decision to move on to the next chapter of his life, and I support it.”

    His decision comes after some colleagues pressured him to step down:

    The Pennsylvania Republican’s about-face came after House GOP leaders and senior Republicans upped the pressure on Murphy to step down. GOP sources familiar with Murphy’s thinking said the married man initially believed he could weather the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette story revealing he had encouraged an abortion in texts he sent to his girlfriend, a psychologist half his age.

    But many senior Republicans did not believe he could — or should — survive until the end of his term. Several top Republicans said Ryan, who met with Murphy Wednesday evening to discuss his future, also wanted him to step down.

    The affair leaked out last month during the divorce proceedings of forensic psychologist Shannon Edwards, Murphy’s mistress, and her husband Jesse Sally, who “sought to have Murphy testify in a deposition earlier this year.” Murphy admitted the affair:

    “Last year I became involved in an affair with a personal friend,” the Republican lawmaker said in a statement released through his lawyer, after a court hearing in Allegheny County on Wednesday. “This is nobody’s fault but my own, and I offer no excuses. To the extent that there should be any blame in this matter, it falls solely upon me.”

    The congressman added, “I ask the media to respect the privacy of my family. They have done nothing wrong and deserve to be left alone.”

    On Tuesday, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette published leaked text messages between Edwards and Murphy from January over a pro-life Facebook post on his work page:

    “And you have zero issue posting your pro-life stance all over the place when you had no issue asking me to abort our unborn child just last week when we thought that was one of the options,” Shannon Edwards, a forensic psychologist in Pittsburgh with whom the congressman admitted last month to having a relationship, wrote to Mr. Murphy on Jan. 25, in the midst of an unfounded pregnancy scare.

    A text from Mr. Murphy’s cell phone number that same day in response says, “I get what you say about my March for life messages. I’ve never written them. Staff does them. I read them and winced. I told staff don’t write any more. I will.”

    The article from the Post-Gazette also revealed turmoil within his office from his chief of staff Susan Mosychuk:

    The memo criticized his “inability to hire and retain competent staff, abysmal office morale,” as well as “hostile, erratic, unstable, angry, aggressive and abusive behavior.”

    According to the memo, the office has had nearly 100 percent staff turnover in one year and that the office has lost more than 100 staffers since Ms. Mosychuk started working with Mr. Murphy. Ms. Mosychuk began working with him in 2003.

    The memo says that its purpose was to detail the problems as they related to the office manual as well as the Congressional Accountability Act and seek corrective action.

    The memo recounted events from June 2 and June 5 involving a visit Mr. Murphy made to his home district.

    “You were storming around as we walked in, and as we sat down for prep — having just arrived literally moments ago — you started in on the [legislative director] and verbally abused him, harassed him, chastised him and criticized all his work products. You called many of the work products that he literally gave up his weekend to produce as ‘useless.’ You pushed other documents off the table onto the floor because they weren’t what you wanted. Then you got angry and demanded we find the documents that you had just thrown on the ground.”

  34. NFL players’ union teamed up with George Soros to fund leftist advocacy groups

    Tax documents show NFLPA activism goes beyond take-a-knee protests

    Even before its feud over the national anthem with President Trump, the NFL Players Association wasn’t on the same political team as many of its fans, judging from its contributions to leftist advocacy groups.

    Tax documents released by 2ndVote show the NFLPA donated $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a group active in the anti-Trump resistance and bankrolled by a host of liberal foundations, including top Democratic donor George Soros’s Foundation for Open Society.
    A member of the AFL-CIO, the NFLPA also contributed in 2013 and 2015 to Working America, the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate, which Open Secrets said spent $1 million in 2016 to defeat Mr. Trump.

    Working America has since mobilized against the Republican tax-cut framework, denouncing it as the “Trump tax scam.”

    The NFLPA contributed $5,000 in 2014 to Jobs with Justice, another pro-union group backed by Mr. Soros, and $5,000 in 2013 to the progressive Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy.
    The NFLPA donations from 2013, 2014 and 2015 were made before Mr. Trump was elected.

  35. Would like to see Tillerson go as he, along with Maddis and McMaster are pro-Iran deal. Trump pledged to get rid of it, but is caving in to these oil guys.

  36. Leading House Democrat Calls on Pelosi to Step Down

    A high-ranking House Democrat on Thursday called on Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California to step down as minority leader to make way for a new generation.

    “Our leadership does a tremendous job,” said Rep. Linda Sanchez of California, “but I do think we have this real breadth and depth of talent within our caucus, and I do think it’s time to pass the torch to a new generation of leaders, and I want to be a part of that transition. I want to see that happen.”

  37. I am of the opinion that the NV killer was an asset of the Deep State. Who cares if he was recruited by ISIS or not, they are the same: comply with totalitarianism or be killed is their message, as assassins of the SWAMP.

    I do not think they will get the reaction they wanted from a populous who is awakened to their game. From a post at zerohedge:

    Rapunzal Oct 5, 2017 10:28 PM

    Can they stop now with all those bullshit stories. Do those creepy satanic child abusing parasitic elites don’t get it. We don’t care about your false flag/hoaxes anymore. Nobody gives a fuck any more about your coding in numbers and Masonic symbols. People will wake up eventually to all that stupidity.

  38. I have mixed emotions about letting these monsters surrender, after what they have done…
    I understand many had to join or be killed… but…

  39. I have to find a link. But just heard on the radio that NV killer worked for the government, in the 80’s IRS and recently as an auditor for Defense dept and has worked for Locke

    Also there were telephone chargers that did not fit his phone in the room and there was room service for three, also when he was known to be out of his room someone else used his room key. Now I don’t believe his cameras had no film unless someone took them prior to leaving .
    Las Vegas has the highest security of any city in America because of the gambling, no way there was no film of him bringing in the cases, just walking around your on candid camera multiple times from many angles. So when he was “ known” out of his room, there had to have been film just for that claim to be made.

    Mark Styne said he was more like a contract shooter than a mass murderer ….The way his body looked with his legs straight in front of him lying on the floor, after a “suicide”…CSI would say, this dog doesn’t hunt

  40. The media, professional Left, most Democrats, globalists, one worlders, etc use the Second Amendment as a rhetorical device against the right to self defense. They conflate the two issues. Firearms as the great equalizer is against their fundamental belief that elites, government, centralized control should be absolute. Their intent is to disarm, prevent self defense, make terrorizing or eliminating whomever resists them or their favored groups (gangs, politicized law enforcement, private security for the wealthy) as easy as possible with continual encroachment on the right to self defense. Their outrage at the idea that God gave this right (another way of saying natural law that even animals have to prevent being killed) is studiously ignored and confused. Of course it is instinctual in humans and animals and they want to destroy it. They want everyone helpless.

  41. As information slowly comes out about Paddock we see an increasingly clear picture of a malignant narcissist. Paranoid, compulsive (gambling and gun accumulation), anti-social, sadistic, some loyalty to his gang (brothers, girlfriend), gross overconfidence and lack of conscience/empathy. This is a personality hallmark of a serial or mass murderer as well as career criminal. He was a monster and it went way back.

  42. Here’s a link about part of what I heard on the radio about NV shooter
    Seems to me the police aren’t looking at hotel video very well.
    Personally, I do not believe most of what they are trickling out and isn’t it amazing the Media are back to attacking the President and really for the magnitude of this horrific event, reporting has not been sufficient

  43. There are a multitude of questions about the NV killer, including a rumor of an ISIS tape he made. The only pervasive consistency is a high level of planning and connections to the Deep State. They have long ago declared war on the American People.

    I think we need to develop a national awareness, considering our gatherings from the perspective of potential assault and establishing a see something say something alertness. The enemy walks amongst us.

  44. In case there was any doubt 🙂
    Plus he is a great raconteur extraordinaire.
    President Donald J. Trump Proclaims October 9, 2017, as Columbus Day
    Five hundred and twenty-five years ago, Christopher Columbus completed an ambitious and daring voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas. The voyage was a remarkable and then-unparalleled feat that helped launch the age of exploration and discovery. The permanent arrival of Europeans to the Americas was a transformative event that undeniably and fundamentally changed the course of human history and set the stage for the development of our great Nation. Therefore, on Columbus Day, we honor the skilled navigator and man of faith, whose courageous feat brought together continents and has inspired countless others to pursue their dreams and convictions — even in the face of extreme doubt and tremendous adversity….

  45. If you can bear Alex Jones constant interruptions of his guest, and hear his guest’s interpretation of what happened and the motive behind the LV shootings.
    His guest presents the most cogent, realistic analysis of this horrific event which may be premature at this time, but I totally agree with him.

    Very interesting. He is saying the Hotel is complicit. That makes sense. Things are not what they seem.

    Then the managers of the event, shooing people off who were trying to give warnings. If they were not also complicit, they were infiltrated.

  47. 10.8.17. Trump to Congress: Fund the border wall, crack down on sanctuary cities and end chain migration for an amnesty deal on ‘Dreamers’

    •Says green cards must be overhauled to end chain migration of extended family

  48. A-list floodgates open on Harvey Weinstein scandal

    Streep’s Statement:

    “Streep, who famously referred to Weinstein as “God” during her 2012 Oscar acceptance speech for “The Iron Lady,” disavowed any prior knowledge of Weinstein’s alleged bad behavior,
    saying he was only “exasperating but respectful” to her.”

    “The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar,” she said. “Each brave voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game.”


    I don’t believe Meryl Streep’s statement for a minute- She is trying to be the appeasement queen never condemning Weinstein outright for his actions. Cavalierly trivializing the mogul’s behavior, taking both sides between the offender and the victims Cutting the baby in half serves no purpose.

    Weinstein may not have approached her personally but his perverted deviate behavior has been common knowledge to Hollywood professionals for 30 yrs.

    If anyone approached Streep with information pertaining to Weinstein’s behavior, she would most likely have covered her ears shouting LA-LA-LA until the bearer of bad tidings disappeared.

    Her biggest mistake was calling Weinstein GOD There is only room for one…

  49. I think the Harvey Weinstein scandal has broken now to derail the Clinton fundraising machine. Her book tour and her pack and her constant quips at Trump were just to keep her in the public mind until she could openly declare her 2020 bid. The only way to stop her is to cut off her cash flow. Here is the first step.

    She hasn’t said a thing yet, nothing but crickets. I have to wonder how close Weinstein is to the top echelon of the Obama/Clinton political machine. And how easy would it be to publicly tie her and *all* the big doners together in this mess.

  50. Lovely interview: TODAY on @foxandfriends: Ivana Trump talks about @POTUS and @FLOTUS. Tune in at 6:20a ET. @ainsleyearhardt

    A prayer answered:
    FBI cites black extremists as new domestic terrorist threat
    “The 2014 shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., has spawned a violent domestic threat from “black identity extremists” who have stepped up attacks on police, according to an explosive new report by the FBI’s counterterrorism division….”

    Exactly, Lu.

    The latest twist in piecing together what happened at the Mandalay hotel shooting posted today on Drudge- Makes absolutely NO sense. “saying, Paddock fired 200 rounds through his hotel room’s door aimed at the security guard standing in the hallway?”

    200 rounds of ammunition blasting through a door?
    Would the door be left standing?
