  • The truth about security clearances

    If Brennan still had his security clearance, then it was unlawfully reactivated by the FBI or CIA for nefarious purposes, or he was still working for them in an official capacity I received several emails from fellow veterans asking: How in the hell did Brennan still have an active security clearance if he wasn’t holding a position that required one? What is going on with Clapper, Rice, Brennan and others still having access to classified information? What’s all this about pulling security clearances from people who shouldn’t have one anyway? Like me, they know that, according to regulations, civil servants...
  • Incompetent CA DMV Had 13 Years To Implement Real ID Program

    In California, the birthplace of the high tech industry, why can't the DMV manage to put a reliable computer system in place? Why such gross incompetence? And why can't a college student get a replacement driver's license before October? Those incredibly long lines at California DMVs look more like the release of the iPhone X or ticket sales for Beyonce and JayZ. But they are not. People are stuck in long DMV lines just to renew and update their driver’s licenses. Yet the notorious California Department of Motor Vehicles is about to be rewarded for its ineptitude and failures by...
  • DC mayor taunts Trump after cancellation of military parade

    CNN Politics ^ | August 17, 2018 | Veronica Stracqualursi and Abby Phillip
    President Donald Trump sought to cast blame Friday for the cancellation of his planned military parade on Washington city council officials, saying they had inflated the cost. Soon after the President tweeted, Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser claimed she "got thru" to Trump about costs for the parade, which at one point was calculated to run about $12 million but more recent estimates said could run as high as $92 million by the time Trump canceled the event. "The local politicians who run Washington, D.C. (poorly) know a windfall when they see it. When asked to give us a price for...
  • Natie “The Nebbish” Silver’s prediction of 35 seat Democrat pickups is an unsupported lie

    The prediction I made earlier this week is coming true. I said the left has nothing, but fake “polls” left, and they will crank them out at a furious rate. It is not a surprise then that the Prince of Lies, Natie The Nebbish Silver of 538.com has squeaked out a ridiculous “prediction” that Democrats have a 75% chance of winning the House back and gaining 35 seats along the way. This is a lie. Now this could possibly be taken seriously if the Democrats were on the right side of even a single-issue Americans care about; but alas they...

    Why are so many Socialists and Socialist Democrats (one and the same) obsessed with pedophilia and porn? Now that he’s publicly demanded it, you can bet the farm that the complicit mainstream media will stop asking Sen. Bernie Sanders about socialism and instead focus on what he claims what is “fundamentally immoral and wrong” with America. “Sen. Bernard Sanders says he wants the media to stop asking him questions about socialism and instead focus on what is “fundamentally immoral and wrong” with America.” (Washington Times, Aug. 15, 2018)

  • Nice Ladies Leaving the Democratic Party

    08/17/2018 10:15:19 AM PDT · by gattaca · 25 replies
    Democrats are leaving their party more in sorrow than in anger, but leaving it they are, sickened by the Democratic Party’s hard left turn. Tens of thousands are telling their stories on the #walkaway movement’s public Facebook page. Their YouTube videos are a fascinating window into the innermost thoughts of kind, thoughtful people across America—all former Democrats. My personal favorites are what I call “nice ladies driven away by Democrat hate.” During and after the election, many women stopped buying what the Dems are selling. They come from every generation, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, and region of America. These women...

    I think it was Winston Churchill who said that democracy is a terrible political system, maybe the worst ever devised by man, but yet the best we have. I am paraphrasing the man, but I think that’s what he meant. In the US though, we have a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy, as many on the left are arguing. What that means is that in the US, the majority cannot vote to strip the Constitutional rights of the minority at any given time. Basically, there’s no such thing as “mob rule” in the US. This is the best system yet...
  • Judge: Trump's release of dossier memos opens door to disclosures from FBI

    President Donald Trump’s decision to declassify competing congressional memos about the validity of the so-called Steele dossier means the FBI has lost its authority to rebuff Freedom of Information Act requests about the bureau’s efforts to verify the report’s intelligence linking Trump to Russia during the 2016 campaign, a federal judge ruled on Thursday. U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta previously blessed the FBI’s decision to refuse such FOIA requests by declining to confirm whether any records exist about aspects of its handling of the hotly contested dossier, prepared by the former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. The judge ruled...

    heart attack, yup. It was said by her own mother, during a live TV broadcast and there wasn’t shit the news media could do about it. It’s also exactly at that moment the media hurriedly buried it. Now, I’m no conspiracy nut either, but I do recognize it when someone’s trying to manipulate a story to push an agenda. If you try to look up the cause of death, the only thing that’ll come up will refer to the original report from the scene that day, which was just the opinion of whoever showed up and filled it out, but...

    The 36% African American Approval of President Donald Trump means things are not the same this year; and they may never be the same again. The news that Rasmussen has found 36% of African Americans support Trump is a political earthquake. This is an increase of 28 points since Election Day and a wound to Democrat hopes for victory in November that is likely to be fatal. The question now has changed from “If this will change races, especially Senate races, to where will it change Senate race?” The numbers point to Maryland as a likely location. According to the...
  • 31% – The reason the media is pushing Omarosa

    Patriot Retort ^ | Aug 15, 2018 | dianny
    According to Rasmussen, President Trump’s approval rating among black voters is 31%. And that my friends is exactly why the media is hopping on the Omarosa bandwagon. Sure, they know her book is about as credible as an email from a Nigerian prince. But they don’t care. They need to ratchet up the “Trump is a racist” meme because the Democrat Party is hemorrhaging black voters. The media believe that Omarosa and her over-the-top, fact-free accusations are just the ticket to turn blacks against the President. What’s odd — and what these idiots in the news media fail to grasp...

    Since shortly after last Thanksgiving, my wife and I been pulling our hair out over this phone issue. The batter drains like crazy, and at about 15%, the battery dies. Then it takes like 10 minutes to restart the phone while watching the screen say: "Optimizing App 1 of 1". You can image in an emergency, the phone suddenly becomes useless. This morning, for the 2nd time, it decided to lock up at about 63% power, then restart. It takes about 8% of power to start up in these conditions. But if your battery's dead, I need to charge it...

As he talks, it becomes clear Nelson says, “I assume,” regarding what the Russians actually did, and he looks very startled at the end to find out he is being recorded! . . . .

    Beyond the music itself, the moment everyone talked about after Franklin’s performance at the Kennedy Center was the way, just before the final chorus, as she was reaching the all-out crescendo, she stripped off her mink and let it fall to the floor. Whoosh! Dropping the fur—it’s an old gospel move, a gesture of emotional abandon, of letting loose. – Soul Survivor Ah, such sweet sadness; the lights in Detroit - which only recently began to glow a bit again - will be a bit dimmer tonight as the curtain comes down on one of Motown’s great ones.

    On 6 August, 2018, Monday afternoon in Suffolk, VA. , a pit bull escaped from its owner. Michaela Clark and Jarret Young, neighbors, attempted to put the dog in a choker collar. The dog attacked Clark, a 20 year old mother.  Young owns a Ruger .45, probably a P345, from the photograph. From wavy.com: Young, an Army veteran, says he couldn't shoot the dog at first because it was too close to Clark. When she moved her body, he says he found an open shot. "I took the shot. The dog stopped biting. It froze and fell over," said...

    With the memory of last August’s violent alt-right protest and counter-protest still raw, the University of Virginia is again under siege. The new invasion actually began a few weeks ahead of schedule. “As grim anniversary nears,” the Chronicle of Higher Education began its coverage in late July, and Inside Higher Ed also emphasized “the approaching one-year anniversary of the white supremacist march on Charlottesville.” Nor has attention been limited to academic circles, with both Huffington Post and Talking Points Memo, for example, reporting objections to the “unconscionable” new invasion. Unlike last August, however, when hundreds of white supremacists, many of...
