I am only trying to point out some of the absurd arguments of the Left. 
Such as *hiding* or ignoring the fact that the increase in sexual assault is surely tied to Muslim immigrants.

Rsh was excitedly calling Trump's handling of CNN brilliant.  That a Republican is finally standing up to them instead of the decades old cowtowing with tail between legs.
One could argue that Trump will never win the MSM over with this strategy however one could also argue there is no way he can ever win them over.  CNN's MO is not to report on Trump but to "take him down".  To destroy him and to get him impeached.  So why should Trump grant them carte blanche questions?  No matter what he says and no matter how he says it, CNN is going out of their way to make him look as bad as they can.

This fits the concept there is no compromise with the LEFT.  Maybe just short term compromise because they don't hold the cards ,but we know that is only till the following day when the mob is back out again shoving all their shit in our faces:

"The march — organizers are careful to call it a “rally” and not a “protest” — was originally cooked up to coincide with the inauguration of Donald Trump. Alas, thanks to obsessive left-wing identity politics, it has morphed into yet another exhausting episode of “Which college-educated woman who resides in the richest country on earth and who was also just profiled in a glowing Vogue puff piece is the most oppressed person in the room?”

As a Republican I am certainly no fan of Soros who has done everything he could to support Democrat Party causes (and globalism at the expense of the sovereignty of the US).

When I said he would have been the poster boy for Hitler as the behind the scenes evil  rich Jew profiting from the anarchy he promotes I in no way would be happy to see a reaction  to him like Nazis did to Jews they singled out as scapegoats.

This is what I was afraid of.  The idea that Soros is being singled out .  There are no other globalists ?   And the last paragraph that mentions other prominent Jews .    shocked

I don't like Hungary using Trump as some sort of justification for this either.  This feeds right into the narrative of the LEFT that we are seeing return of a Nazism right here in the US.  No way.

The usual buzz words

"diversity"
"arc of history"
"the notion that" (anything the Republicans believe in)
"who we are" ( we are supposed to be globalists)

and then at end add another 50 or so "I"s

And I might add no need to listen to the MSM fawn all over his speech and their blatant and latent hostility to Trump and anything Republican (except for useful idiots like Graham and McCain)

And for good measure no one should think for one second this guy will go away.  We will continue to be lectured till he is dead which will be long after me.  If the hope and change is NOT HIS brand then  it is wrong .

NR's Andrew McCarthy does it again - he picks apart the Obama's narrative.  The "intelligence" report leaves out one name.   Surely, nothing suspicious about that !   Except the name is Podesta.  The mafia guy must have cooked a home meal of pasta (while in his bath robe) for the "intelligence chiefs " to get them to leave his name out of the report.

It certainly is suspicious of the political bent of the report his name , the owner of hacked emails that are part of the material that is the topic of the whole issue , is not mentioned once.

"The leaks came after Trump expressed doubts about Russia’s role and any election impact. Lest the rookie miss the message, Chuck Schumer, the Dems’ man in the Senate, made like a Soprano in a TV interview: “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you.”

Going public with classified information, which the leakers did, is a crime, but these days it’s acceptable if it serves the left’s political purpose.
Is Schumer suggesting CIA analysts would stay silent about a terrorist plot? Would they feed Trump misinformation to get back at him?"

Schumer needs to explain this statement up front and center!

"Last week a study of some 16,000 stock transactions carried out by House members was published in the journal Business and Politics. This detailed analysis showed that the investment portfolios of House members beat the market by about six points a year. (Democrats did especially well, outperforming by some nine points a year, while Republicans topped the average investor by only two percent annually.)"

This further confirms what we already know - Democrats are more clever then stupid Republicans.

There are elites.  Wanna be elites
and then everyone else.

Reminds me of  a famous line from Elaine Stewart (alias Elsie Steinberg from NJ) from the movie the "bad and the beautiful" when whe says there are no "good men, only men".
I will apply that to politicians .  There are no honest politicians, only politicians.

Another disappointment was about my home town mayor. I was telling a doctor friend of mine how Mayor Dunn of Elizabeth NJ was a rare Democrat who supported President Reagan.  Most Dems wanted him dead.  Not Dunn.  Reagan was so impressed he came to our city and gave a speech at the church just across the street from my old high school.  AFter telling my friend this story he seemed to know of mayor Dunn and stated he was "one of the honest ones".  So recently I was reading about him on Wikipedia only to learn the FBI had him on tape taking a bag of cash from the Elizabeth mafia.

I guess there simply are no "honest ones".
But I can think of Elsie Sternberg.  She was something in Playboy in the 50s .  (and Jewish too!)

"“My election win offers a counter-narrative to the bigotry in the world,” Minnesota State Representative-elect Omar, 34, says in the new issue of PEOPLE. “This is a land of immigrants, and most come here for opportunity, a second chance. It’s our time to fight for the America we know we can have.”

******Meet Ilhan Omar, the First Somali-American US Legislator: My Win ‘Offers a Counter-Narrative to the Bigotry in the World’
Jeff Nelson,People 14 hours ago Comments  Sign in to like  Reblog on Tumblr  Share  Tweet  Email

On Nov. 8, Ilhan Omar made history when she was elected the first Somali-American lawmaker in the U.S.

“My election win offers a counter-narrative to the bigotry in the world,” Minnesota State Representative-elect Omar, 34, says in the new issue of PEOPLE. “This is a land of immigrants, and most come here for opportunity, a second chance. It’s our time to fight for the America we know we can have.”

Omar herself is an immigrant, having fled her civil war-torn home country of Somalia as a child.

“The war started when I was 8,” says Omar, who recalls witnessing the terrors of conflict. “One night militia tried to break into our home, and the exterior was riddled with bullets. My family left our neighborhood, passing through dead bodies and debris.”

Not long after, Omar says she and her family left their home and relocated to a refugee camp in neighboring Kenya.

“I no longer had a bed of my own, the privacy of a shower in my own bathroom — we were essentially homeless,” Omar says. “I would fetch water, and my family would reward me with a shilling at the end of the day, so I would go see a movie in the village next door in a makeshift theater: a hut.”

After four years years in that Mombasa refugee camp, Omar and her family were sponsored to move to the United States, arriving in New York before moving to Arlington, Virginia, where Omar, then 12, began middle school.

“ had missed years of education, so I didn’t really speak English,” Omar says. “My sisters and I learned by practice, watching TV with the captions on, reading and trying to repeat words back to each other.”

After two and a half years, the family moved once again, this time to Minneapolis, where Omar faced another difficult adjustment: high school.

“Not a lot of the kids knew how to coexist with people of a different background, so we created a unity and diversity program,” Omar says. “We’d have meals together and connect through experiences and stories. I was finally just ‘Ilhan,’ not ‘that Somali girl.'”

For more on Ilhan Omar, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands everywhere now.
That United Nations-esque group in high school laid the groundwork for Omar’s future in community organizing and politics, which she continued to nurture by studying political science and international policies at North Dakota State University.

“I believe women and minorities often wait for permission to be invited to something; we need to stop doing that,” says Omar, who managed a 2013 city council race and was hired on to work at city hall in Minneapolis before getting elected by Minnesota’s District 60B in 2016.

While she’s always been passionate about politics, Omar’s fervor has only been compounded since becoming a mother.

 

 

“My kids are the reason I continue to strive for something better,” she says of her children with husband Ahmed Hirsi: son Adnan, 11, and daughters Ilwad, 4, and Isra, 13. “They know, as kids who are Muslim, Somali, black Americans, that they’ve always been part of a struggle and that change isn’t easy.”

Even so, Omar hopes to use her new statehouse position to make a change. And despite the turbulent political year leading up to President-elect Donald Trump‘s election in November, Omar remains hopeful.

“I find hope,” she says, “in knowing that I belong to a state that has a lot of people who are champions of change and progress; that we will rise up and fight for justice and equality; that ultimately love will trump hate.”

If Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch is against it then I am.  OTOH this committee was established by Pelosi in 08 so how non partisan can it be?  Perhaps Dems were just going to use it as a political weapon.

I think we are in for major scandals under Trump.  There are just too many crooks and too few law enforcement types who are ethical.  And this move by the Republicans makes it harder to investigate the crooks.  As if it were not hard and almost impossible now........

It was only in the last one to two years any media called any politicians' lies - lies.  I even recall posting I wish that they would start using the "L" word when it is clearly that.

After 8 yrs of lying Democrats and every single media person avoiding the work "lie" it become very frustrating.  Where was Huff post during 8 yrs of the lying Obama? Or the 25 yrs of lying Clintons?

Now, rather suddenly , it is imperative we call politicians (Republicans) liars.

I remember when Peter Gold (?) told us he was buying gold after the tech crash in the early 2000s on a previous forum pre Dog Brothers:

I am not sure I agree with the comparison to LBJ and I really get concerned when people on the right make claims that the LEFT is decimated.   OK may Repubs have made gains with political positions but I do not see a sea tide change in  the national consciousness towards conservatism. 

The election could EASILY have gone the other way and we would all be ringing our hands about the demise of the Republican Party and conservatism.  Yet the article is a worth while though provoking exercise:

My answer - get rid of the loopholes, the deductions, apply taxes EQUALLY to everyone and cut the damn rates.  What is so hard?
