    SEATTLE — Washington state’s penchant for getting high is trashing the place. Plastic “doob tubes” and small Mylar bags used to package pot are moldering in gutters, bleaching out in landfills and bobbing in waterways. Concentrated nutrients and fertilizers left over from cannabis growing operations are being dumped in public sewers and making their way past wastewater treatment plants into Puget Sound. And millions of pounds of weed harvest waste that could be composted are instead getting trucked to landfills. This, in a part of the country that prides itself on being environmentally friendly. “We’re seeing a lot of marijuana...

    "If the Smart Growth plans are fully implemented, density in American cities will be as much as three times higher than those currently in New York City" “Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption, and set levels of mortality control.”—Professor Maurice King Progressives (regressives) have been educating (indoctrinating) our American children for decades, inculcating (forcing) ideas such as political correctness (approved speech), globalism (one world government), global warming/climate change (redistribution of wealth), income equality (confiscation of wealth), resistance (anarchy), social justice (reverse discrimination), and tolerance (intolerance).

    Omarosa Manigault-Newman should never have been allowed to breathe Situation Room air, and that she did, while jeopardizing national security, is a sad and frightening testament to the Trump administration’s utter lack of seriousness from its conception. And now, the President is paying the price for hiring some of the worst people to work for him: An unqualified, backbiting and dishonest former employee is waging a public relations war. I have no idea if what Manigault-Newman is alleging Trump did or said is true. It’s all plausible — would anyone be shocked to learn a man who has openly, publicly...

    Progressive-left will continue to drag you where they have been since Nov. 9, 2016: in deep dark despair, a place they deliberately went into, not realizing they’d never be able to come back out. We’re all in the same boat now. “All” being conservatives, Christians, deplorables—anyone who dares disagree with—let alone stand up to—the propagandists cleared by MSM and social media to wander freely all over the Internet. Capital ‘D’ Ditto for not dozens and hundreds, but THOUSANDS of conservative news sites who remain faithful to “telling it like it is”.

    The Deutsche Welle reports the nursing home told police that the two men were missing from their rooms. The pair was eventually found at the Wacken Open Air festival at around 3 a.m. local time. The four-day event is said to be the world’s largest heavy metal festival. Police said the two were “disoriented and dazed,” according to Deutsche Welle. The elderly metalheads reportedly did not want to leave the festival so easily. Police had to escort them back to the nursing home with a taxi and a patrol car.

Professional politicians, Big-money liberal media/entertainment, Very real devil, satan himself Here is Wednesday’s hypothetical situation. Imagine if you will ... The National Rifle Association has hit the streets. Their guns are still holstered, but masked members are running about, sucker punching and clobbering with shot-filled rubber hoses, anybody who is wearing a Hillary Clinton T-shirt or has one of her bumper stickers on a vehicle.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo may have just handed Republicans a ready-made campaign ad for his rumored 2020 presidential bid – by declaring Wednesday that America “was never that great.” The Democratic star made the seemingly offhand remark as part of his rebuke of President Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan during a bill-signing in New York. But the line drew gasps from the crowd. “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” Cuomo said, to an awkward blend of gasps and chuckles. “We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every American...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.) slammed President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan on Wednesday, saying the country was "never that great" in the first place. Speaking at an event for women and girls, Cuomo appeared to stun the crowd when he made the remark. "We're not going to make America great again," Cuomo said. "It was never that great." Some in the audience gasped and laughed in surprise.

    Watch how de Leon avoids calling Feinstein a crook, lest he draw attention to his own legal issues and corruption Why is California such a cesspit of political corruption? Both U.S. Senate candidates from California have some serious legal troubles and should spend time in the pokey. For 20 years, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) employed a Chinese spy on her staff. When the FBI notified her about the spy on staff, Feinstein allowed him to retire, but claimed she fired him. Why wasn’t he immediately arrested by the FBI?

    “At the first glance as you entered Clairvaux ... you could see that it was a temple of God; and the still, silent valley, in the modest simplicity of its buildings, spoke of the sincere humility of Christ’s poor. Moreover, in this valley full of men, where no one was permitted to be idle, where one and all were occupied with their allotted tasks, a silence as deep as that of night prevailed. The sounds of labor, or the chanting of the brethren in the choral service, were the only exceptions …. As I watch them singing without fatigue from...

    A former aide to Hillary Clinton slammed President Trump on Twitter Wednesday after he revoked former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance. “Trump just revoked former CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance,” Philippe Reines said in a tweet. “What a vindictive little b*tch.” Shortly before Reine’s remarks on Twitter, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read Trump’s statement announcing the move during a press briefing on Wednesday afternoon. "As the head of the executive branch and the commander in chief,” Trump’s statement read, “I have a unique constitutional responsibility to protect the nation's classified information, including by controlling access...

    President Trump on Wednesday revoked the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan, citing his “erratic conduct and behavior.” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, reading a statement from the president, said Mr. Brennan “leveraged his status as a former high-ranking official” to make false charges against the administration. Mr. Trump’s statement began, “As the head of the executive branch and commander-in-chief, I have a unique constitutional responsibility to protect the nation’s classified information, including by controlling access to it. Today in fulfilling that responsibility, I’ve decided to revoke the security clearance of John Brennan, former director of...

    President Donald Trump questioned the validity of the ongoing Russia investigation on Wednesday after some of the agents who began the process were fired. “The Rigged Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on as the ‘originators and founders’ of this scam continue to be fired and demoted for their corrupt and illegal activity,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “All credibility is gone from this terrible Hoax, and much more will be lost as it proceeds.” Trump cited former FBI Assistant Director Chris Swecker, who said that the firing of agent Peter Strzok was a “step in the right direction.” “The action...

    Infowars host Alex Jones has found a new platform to spew his hate speech. Social networking site Tumblr announced Wednesday that it was “closely monitoring” Jones’ Infowars page after other major companies kicked the serial harasser off their platforms. In a statement to HuffPost, Tumblr said it would not take immediate action to take down Jones’ page after he recently became active on the platform again. (Tumblr, HuffPost and AOL.com are both owned by Verizon.) “Alex Jones and Infowars had been inactive on Tumblr for nearly a year until this week when they began posting again,” the company said in...

    Full headline: Christian-hating transgender VT gubernatorial candidate duped by satire site: ‘Some evangelists just crazy!’ Blinded by Hate: The country’s first major party transgender gubernatorial candidate, Christine Hallquist, has repeatedly demonstrated in the recent past she has no love for Christians. In fact, the Democratic candidate appears to be so blinded by hate for our country’s dominant religious philosophy that she allowed it to cloud her better judgment when she responded negatively to a post at a Christian-themed satire site, the Babylon Bee.

    Vice President Mike Pence will visit Dallas Rep. Pete Sessions' district ahead of the November elections as part of a determination that the longtime incumbent's campaign against Democrat Colin Allred is the top mid-term priority in Texas. That's the word from Corey Lewandowski, senior strategist to Pence's political action committee. "Pete's district is probably the most critical for us," he said Wednesday at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. "When you look at the race, you look at his opponent, and you look at where things are."

    An estimated 2.3 million Venezuelans had fled the crisis-wracked country as of June, mainly to Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil, the United Nations said Tuesday. U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters that those fleeing — about 7 percent of Venezuela’s 32.8 million people — cite lack of food as the main reason for leaving. U.N. humanitarian officials report that 1.3 million of those who fled were “suffering from malnourishment,” he said. Oil-rich Venezuela has been sinking deeper into an economic and political crisis. Hyperinflation and widespread shortages of food and medicine are battering the country, and the International Monetary Fund...

    They explain. So good! Omarosa has known Donald Trump for FIFTEEN YEARS. That's more than plenty of time to figure out whether someone is as racist, unethical, and mentally unfit as Omarosa claims the President is. But alas, all she did was build her career off of him...And that's all she can continue to do with her antics..
