State of the Union

Should be entertaining, with yet another Kennedy [yawn] crawling out of the woodwork to give the Socialist Workers Party rebuttal.  Can Maxine Waters be far behind?

In the ear of the #MeToo movement could the Dems pick a worse name for SOTU rebuttal than a "Kennedy?' Maybe Congressman Jack the Ripper or Senator Weinstein?

Exxon to invest an additional $50 billion over the next five years due to Trump tax policy. Reached for comment Nancy Pelosi called it ‘pathetic.’ Voting against Trump’s tax cut is going to be worse for demwits than Obamacare.

The shrieking of the left, in opposition to releasing "The Memo," is getting louder and more desperate today. I'm enjoying the sound.

Obama approval rating Jan 25 2010 48%
Trump approval rating Jan 29, 2018 47%

Not much difference. Still a politically polarized country.

In Trump's the SOTU speech I was struck by all the things Demwits wouldn't stand for with the list including God, Veterans, the police even the poor North Korean defector who was an amputee and crawled to freedom. Whoever thought on the demwit side putting a Kennedy in front of a wrecked car lathered up with lip gloss should be fired but won't. Btw Nance; thanks for GIF's for this falls elections of you in a perpetual scowl. American hate this woman almost as much as Fat Hilda..

Secret video of Democrat poster boy Luis Gutierrez at the SOTU speech.

The leftie Dems could not have embarrassed themselves more if they had been trying to do so. This does not auger well for them in the next election.

For very selfish reasons I’m sorry to see Trey Gowdy retire. He’s given eight years of his life to Congress and deserves to be a private citizen again. Compare this demwits who have hung around 30,40 or even 50 years and not done shit.

January 31, 2018 at 18:45 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

'returning to the justice system'...
Perhaps as a Judge?

January 31, 2018 at 22:31 | Unregistered Commentergriswold3

Daydreaming here, seeing Gowdy as special prosecutor for the Hillary/Uranium One/emails/fake dossier/FBI malfeasance/FISA abuse mess.

February 1, 2018 at 07:11 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Fat Hilda's excuses on covering up for the second sexual predator in her life after Bill are starting to unfold like her email excuses. Deny... Lie.....Release a non-apology apology... Everyone was doing it... Your sexist..... It's old news that's already been litigated...

There are women on death row that are not as evil as Hillary Clinton...

February 1, 2018 at 10:10 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

this is who we are...
Michelle O was mocking Melania, encouraged the audience to laugh Mean Girl fashion. Then she says we must have empathy. To those scared by the current state , replies, ' all we have is hope'.
do they even listen to what they say?
They have NO answers.

The Wash Po and NYT are coming out against the publication of the FBI memo. These are the same papers celebrated for their 'brave' publication of the Pentagon Papers and annual outing of CIA assets. I guess when the information to be disclosed is negative to demwits it's better to be kept in the dark.

February 2, 2018 at 06:56 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Massive new jobs created in January, wages rose, unemployment stayed low. Therefore, Democrats are on suicide watch.

February 2, 2018 at 10:37 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

The big memo is out, verifying what anyone who has been paying attention has suspected for some time. Deep State corruption here is pretty bad. Damning. It's easy to see why the statist Dems and their leftie media allies did not want the memo made public.

February 2, 2018 at 13:58 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard


As we all knew; Obama politicized the FBI and DOJ and turned them into weaponized attack dogs against Trump..Lynch, Rice and other Obama officials requested unmasking searches based on FISA warrants from a bogus dossier. Does anyone not think Obama didn't pass that illegally obtained intel on to Fat Hilda? Why was Comey signing FISA requests after he knew the Trump dossier was paid for by Fat Hilda? That 6'8' vagina is Tweeting today like a guy who knows he's screwed..

February 2, 2018 at 14:32 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Comey asked 'That's it?'
Proves we've fallen into Third World status regarding the Rule of Law.
So if this is nothing. The RNC should shop for a dossier concerning their opponents in the same fashion how could the DNC protest? I think DJT should play their game. Considering where he's from, he could beat them with their own devices.

February 2, 2018 at 17:25 | Unregistered Commentergriswold3

Comey signed 3 applications for the warrant application, KNOWING it was illegal
that's criminal

February 3, 2018 at 09:04 | Unregistered Commentergriswold3

Apparently, with the left's failure to stop the release of the memo, the tactics have changed. Comey's "That's it?" seems to be the new talking point. But yes, Comey, that is IT. Not the sort of IT you would like, though. This IT could involve criminal prosecutions. And IT ain't over yet. The memo is priming the pump.

Gris, Comey thinks he's in the clear, due to past history of leftists getting away with stuff. We'll see if Dems and RINOs can manage to give him enough cover.

Would be amusing to see Comey cutting a deal to avoid prison, and spilling his guts on a bunch of Deep State Quislings.

February 3, 2018 at 12:19 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Every 2016 FISA Trump surveillance request had AG Loretta Lynch's signature on it. The last three all used the Steele Dossier as justification of which SHE KNEW HILLARY CLINTON PAID for as an attack hit piece on Donald Trump. Anyone think in 2016 she never got around to telling "President Shit Show" hey' I'm signing declarations to surveil Trump based on a Michael Steel dossier that Hillary paid for???

February 3, 2018 at 12:25 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

McCain is at it again, attacking the Nunes memo release. Of course he is, given his complicity in the underhanded Steele dossier plot to get Trump. He is in deep doodoo, and he knows it. Terminal illness does not give him license to do these heinous things. He is, simply put, a Quisling asshole.

February 4, 2018 at 09:09 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

And now McCain is introducing a bill on immigration that deliberately excludes funding for the wall. He's become the enemy, either through senility, damage from the brain tumor, or simply a nasty hate filled agenda of trying to derail Trump at every turn without regard for the negative consequences for our country.

February 5, 2018 at 08:27 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

McCain gets all my respect for his time in the military and prisoner of war but as a politician he's been a monumental failure. McCain-Feingold anyone?

February 5, 2018 at 10:33 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

McCain does deserve credit for his military service.

My theory has always been that McCain has taken whatever side of an issue to get himself on camera as often as possible. For years the most dangerous place in DC was between John McCain and a TV camera. As the media have continued to get more liberal, he has as well.

But Trump is something personal to McCain, certainly because of that one insult, but also McCain feels he was much more qualified to be president than Trump. McCain refused to fight for the job. And McCain can't stand that Trump fought for the job and won.

February 5, 2018 at 13:03 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

The whole FBI dossier connection is getting even more troublesome, now it seems that the DNC was paying for Steele to do oppo research and part of his "research" was interviewing Clinton campaign people so they could place that info into a dossier with some potential veneer of truth, or at least masking of the true source of the "research".

From Hot Air, Chuck Grassley still on the case.

I think the Dems became emboldened to tell any lies they wanted after Dingy Harry Reid got away with flat-out lying about Romney's taxes. They just decided they could self-source anything they wanted to with a circular process, similar to money-laundering, only in this case, actually lie-laundering.

February 5, 2018 at 16:17 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

The Grassley memo is very important, yet the leftie media are ignoring it. Typical journalistic malfeasance.

I fear for this country, with "news" people being so completely corrupt.

February 6, 2018 at 17:14 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Latest text message drop between the FBI lovers includes a reference to Obama wanting to know everything about the Hillary email investigation. It's heating up, and getting very interesting.

I seem to recall a question that was asked over and over again about Dick Nixon: "What did the president know, and when did he know it?" Time to reactivate that question.

February 7, 2018 at 10:29 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Obama “I stay out of FBI investigations.” Oh’ man you just knew former President Shit Show was up to his ass in this mess.

In case you missed it Interesting twist about the FISA target - Carter Page....

Bard Globalization and International Affairs (BGIA) Director Carter Page will discuss the internal dynamics of presidential transition teams during the change of administrations and the roles of individual participants in these processes.

"Carter Page previously worked with the Clinton Administration transition team in 1992-1993 while serving as a Research Fellow on the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) on Capitol Hill. During his Fellowship, HASC Chairman Les Aspin was selected by President Clinton as the Secretary of Defense in December 1992. From May 1993 – December 1994, Carter went on to serve as the Arms Control Action Officer for Counterproliferation Policy in the Nuclear Affairs and International Negotiations Branch of the Navy Staff in the Pentagon."

Such twists and turns.. (What is this "Russian Spy," according to FISA warrants, doing in the Clinton Admin.?)

February 7, 2018 at 19:11 | Unregistered Commentergriswold3

Meanwhile, back at the ranch..........

Senate RINOs and Dems, predictably, are teaming up to foist another bloated spending bill upon the country. Schumer and McConnell, cut from the same cloth. Bastards.

February 8, 2018 at 07:26 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Well we all knew "President Shit Show" was up to his ass in helping Fat Hilda win the Presidency. Now we learn Sid The Weasel" Blumenthal was a corroborating source for a second dossier cited for a FISA warrant on Trump.. How is this guy alive? A $10 bet in Vegas would have won you a $1,000,000 that he would be dead by now likely from one behind the ear from a Clinton hit man... The Clinton shit heels just never go away...

The leftie media jackasses, led by the entirely corrupt New York Slimes and the Washington Compost, are in overdrive, trying every possible angle to delegitimize the Nunes and Grassley memos and demonize everyone who is digging out the truth. In other words, the lefties are scared shitless. Good. They should be.

On a DEFCON-1 level of stupidity libs are complaining that male dogs win the Westminster Top Dog prize twice as much as females. And libs question why they run nothing nationally anymore.

February 9, 2018 at 18:06 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

How disgustingly typical. The Dems deliberately sent Trump a rebuttal memo to try to blunt the Nunes memo, knowing that it couldn't be released as is. And now, with Trump telling them to cut the crap and do a proper memo that won't need to be heavily redacted, the Dems are howling. Disingenuous in the extreme. But what else can we expect from the Quisling bastards of the Democrat Socialist Workers Party?

February 10, 2018 at 11:49 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

"Three Democratic congressmen attended a private dinner hosted by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, a new report reveals. Reps. Keith Ellison of Minnesota, Andre Carson of Indiana and Gregory Meeks of New York attended the private dinner, along with Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who leads the black supremacist group Nation of Islam."

As you can imagine CNN and MSNBC are running no-stop outrage at this terrible meeting..... Well we can all imagine... How long until we find out former "President Shit Show" attended also?

February 10, 2018 at 13:29 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Of course, Tom. Those cretins are not Americans in any sense but residency. Three of them are radical Muslims, and the 4th has a radical Muslim chief of staff. But the Democrat Socialist Workers Party has no problem high-fiving them as they go about trashing the country.

CNN is REJOICING over Kim Jong Un's sister throwing side-eye shade on V.P. Pence at the opening ceremonies. CNN is so invested in 'anything anti-Trump" that they will give glowing reviews to the sister and enabler of one of the most fucking brutal regime's to ever walk this earth... The dems don't last as a party.. Their inward procreation of ideas makes them irrelevant as a political party in 20 years. It's like inner-family Roman marrying and procreation. We're at the retard stage.. Still birth comes later...

NBC's Joshua Cooper Ramo is the latest example of how an individual can be massively schooled and yet remain grossly under-educated. What a screw-up.

The left is laughing hysterically at Trump's daughter for 'opening a letter that contained white powder today.' Thank God it was just corn starch. But from the left's perspective it was her fault for opening the letter. I'm convinced an assassination attempt on Trump or one of his children is coming. If that happens, there isn't a safe democrat in the land serving now or former...

The look on the Obama’s faces when they saw their official White House portraits is PRICELESS. The crowd reaction was WTF? Perfect. Low class Prezzie gets a low class portrait.

I read where Obama’s portrait “painter” has an Afro-Centric theme with a specialty of African-American women holding up severed white heads. Tell me this trash painters shit isn’t going in the White House or any other government building?

Flynn’s attorneys have started the process to withdraw his guilty plea and show failure of due process an 4th amendment rights. Translation; the case against Flynn was built of a FISA warrant procured by false pretenses. “Fruit of the forbidden tree” legal doctrine.

Quisling news: In Ohio, the terror-supporting group CAIR is hosting a forum for candidates for governor. Leftists Richard Cordray, Joe Schiavoni, Little Denny Kucinich and Bill O’Neil seem to think it's a good idea to show up, shoulder to shoulder with these Islamist thugs.
