    Fusion GPS was hired by the Obama for America campaign to perform opposition research against Mitt Romney. Fusion GPS’s job was to gather research and connect reporters who would publish hit pieces while the lawyers made the payments and managed the relationships. In early 2012, the Obama campaign launched a political hit job against Mitt Romney campaign donors.... .... It is clear now that David Corn and Michael Isikoff are all connected to the strategy of hitting “enemies” of Obama. It also seems apparent that Mother Jones and Fusion GPS may have multiple connection points. They may also have been...

    The New York Times columnist David Brooks writes in a “memo” to Democratic Party leaders that their support for abortion on demand up until birth is hurting their party. Pointing out the failure of the Senate to muster 60 votes to protect unborn babies from abortion past the fifth month of pregnancy, Brooks notes, “I kept wondering: How much is our position on late-term abortions hurting us?” Taking his readers back through time before Roe v. Wade, when the Supreme Court created a right to abortion – though, as Alan Dershowitz has noted, none ever existed in the Constitution –...

    On February 8, government shutdown theater comes back into town. Will there be another shutdown? In January, the Democrats decided to shut it down for three-days for illegal aliens. The end result was the Democrats lost. They got nothing. They got a spending bill in which they had no objections to; it funded Children’s Health Insurance Program for six years. The exception was it was a week shorter concerning funding. Hence, why the news media and observers were wondering what was the point of this shutdown. Democrats thought they could blame the GOP, but you can’t spin facts. The facts...

    Despite polls showing that 70% of those who saw or heard President Trump’s State-of-the-Union speech approved of it, the media talking heads at MSNBC roundly panned it. Joy Reid, host of the weekend “news” show A.M. Joy, contended that “his praise of church, family, and the National Anthem are clearly outside the mainstream of the values shared by most of the country. We’ve moved on from these outdated and obsolete ideas. And his total failure to reach out to the LGBTQ community puts him at odds with the progressive aspirations laid out for America by President Obama.” Stene Schmidt, the...

    Tim Allen joins docudrama taking down PC culture By Marisa Schultz Posted By Ruth King on February 3rd, 2018 https://nypost.com/2018/01/29/tim-allen-joins-docudrama-taking-down-pc-culture/ WASHINGTON – Actor Tim Allen has joined the cast of new movie aimed at disrupting the liberal and PC culture in Hollywood, on college campuses and in comedy. Allen’s “Last Man Standing” sitcom was canceled last year and outraged fans believe ABC pulled the plug because the family comedy highlighted conservative values. ABC denied it was over politics. Allen has signed onto the docudrama “No Safe Spaces” that’s expected to hit theaters in the fall. Fellow comedian Adam Carolla and...

    America hater, (now silent) Obama lives on in the demented, body & mind of Democrat political twerp, California, Left-Wing, Congressman, Adam (Saul Alinsky) Schiff...who, like Obama, always leads from behind. The ever laggard, Schiff, drags up a Democrat minority memo, supposedly an answer and rebuttal to the now ultra famous "Nunes Memo". Shucks, Adam, my boy, it is too late. Your memo has to be voted on by the full committee, and after it is approved for release, it must undergo a "five day" vetting & approval process from POTUS, Donald J. Trump, exactly in the same fashion as the...
  • The Back to the Future Democrats: The party of Pelosi is trapped in identity politics

    02/02/2018 6:27:11 PM PST · by Liberty7732 · 14 replies
    The Democrats are like characters in a Bill Murray movie. They keep reliving the same day, trapped in the rhythms and routines of campaign 2016. They persist in the rhetoric, tropes, gestures, figures, and policies that delivered the presidency, the Congress, and the bulk of statehouses and governor's mansions to the Republican Party. What they can't escape is identity politics—the slicing and dicing of the electorate by race, sex, orientation, gender identity, country of origin, dietary preference, what have you. Meanwhile President Trump has run off with the most saleable of the Democrats' old issues and the foundations of their...

    The release of the House Intelligence Committee memo summarizing FBI abuses of its surveillance authority sparked differing reactions across the political spectrum. The gist of the Agency's crime is that top FBI officials knowingly used an unverified dossier created at the behest of the Democratic National Committee to dupe a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge into issuing a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign. President Trump, target and victim of the FBI's political vendetta, described the FBI's actions as "worse than Watergate where a handful of Nixon campaign operatives broke into Democratic Party offices to spy on the McGovern...

    President Trump said Friday that congressional Democrats don’t care about the fate of young illegal immigrants and are resisting a solution with the White House for political purposes. “We want to make a deal,” Mr. Trump told reporters while touring a Customs and Border Protection National Training Center in Sterling, Virginia. “I think they want to use it for political purposes, for elections. I really am not happy with the way it’s going, from the standpoint of the Democrats.”

    "... Do Democrats take religion seriously? They say they do. How about Burns Strider? He was Hillary Clinton’s faith adviser when she ran for president in 2008. When Hillary learned that he was sexually harassing her female staff, she refused to fire him. She even overruled her campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle, who wanted him canned. The story about Strider broke on January 26, and over the last few days only the Washington Post has shown any interest in discussing his role as a religious advisor. It is a sure bet that had an evangelical leader advising presidential candidate George...

    And there it is -- independent confirmation of what Republicans have been saying for months, backed up by nonpartisan analyses: American workers are getting effective pay increases thanks to the tax reform law against which every Democrats voted last December.  Opponents called the bill "armageddon," the "end of the world," and a "massive attack" on the middle class.  It's none of those things.  It's a pro-growth tax cut for 80 percent of Americans, including 91 percent of the middle class.  The Associated Press reports: Workers are starting to notice larger paychecks following tax overhaul. @sarahssell reports https://t.co/788OaTNPHU— AP Business News (@APBusiness) February...

    A Republican congressman says the U.S. government should significantly raise the gas tax in order to fund President Donald Trump's ambitious infrastructure plan. Rep. Bill Shuster of Pennsylvania told Bloomberg TV that the tax should be increased by 15 cents per gallon of gasoline. The current rate is 18.4 cents, and hasn't seen a hike since 1993. Shuster said Thursday at a Republican congressional retreat in West Virginia that for the average American, a 15-cent increase would equal the cost of 'a cup of coffee a week that they might have to forgo.' 'Or if you're a Starbucks person, half...

    A Democratic congresswoman was caught playing what appeared to be the popular smart phone game Candy Crush during President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday. Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence (D- Mich) could be seen tapping away at digital jelly beans and gumdrops while Trump delivered his message of “unity” to the nation. Some fellow members of Congress were seen reading Twitter and emails just beside her.

    Liberal legislators and members of the Congressional Black Caucus were caught-red handed this week; reading and playing video games on their mobile phones while President Trump delivered his first State of the Union address to the American people. Images first surfaced on the internet of Michigan Rep. Brenda Lawrence typing-away on her smart phone as the Commander-in-Chief outlined his vision for 2018 and beyond. Upon further inspection, the photos showed Rep. Lawrence playing popular web-based game Candy Crush in the middle of the address. “That State of the Union is put out an hour in advance so Democrats and Republicans...

    There really should be a job posting coming up soon for a new DNC strategist because somebody has gone off their meds. The phrase “repeal and replace” is coming back into vogue, but this time we’ll be hearing it from the Democrats. At first glance I had to double check to make sure this wasn’t an article from The Onion. But it’s really published at The Hill and deals with the Democrats’ overarching strategy heading into the midterms and perhaps even the 2020 elections. They’re counting on Americans being so unhappy with their “crumbs” from the tax cuts that they...
