Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I sure don't understand those who support gun rights, but have severe cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
How could President Hillary Clinton make you feel better about the right to keep and bear arms?

I remember a movie that was very popular during John F. Kennedy’s administration, it was called 7 Days in May.

A handsome young American President who wasn’t entirely popular with the military, was conspired against by an attempted military coup. The movie made it seem the impossible was almost easy.

Now 56 years later I feel I am witnessing a similar attempted coup, this time real, not a movie, not by the military with guns, but attempted by the Justice Department along with the FBI, not with guns, but with Judges and lawyers.

When I read the things that the FBI was caught texting, I can only imagine what they were saying behind closed doors.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

President Donald Trump has many weaknesses and faults, as do I as a member of the fallen human race. President Trump consistently, in my opinion, plays and beats the left every day by being himself and not a man whose life has been as a typical swamp politician.
I get you constant critics, President Trump doesn’t meet your high standards of decorum and doesn’t play by the political rules you’ve gotten accustomed to seeing from those who aren’t progressive socialists. So, go ahead and bash him daily if it makes you feel good about yourself and those who agree with you. I understand that you would rather be discussing the daily news about President Hillary Clinton.

For me, I’m seeing it like the writer of this linked article.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

If McCain had any remaining honor, he would have stepped down from his Senate seat when he was chosen as the Republican candidate for President. Instead he left himself in a seat of power for when he let progressive socialist Barry Soetoro beat him in 2008.

Unemployment at 17 year low
http://www.businessinsider.com/us-jobs- ... 018-2018-5
The unemployment rate fell to 3.9% after holding steady at 4.1% for six months. It is the lowest level since late 2000.
Bigger than Washington
https://pjmedia.com/richardfernandez/bi ... ashington/
The Cold Civil War has temporarily settled into a waiting game. The political combatants like two tired boxers, are punching without much energy, both sides cut and bloodied. All semblance of grace and beauty has gone out of the match. The struggle to control Washington is driven by sheer brutality now.
Two stories appeared on the front page and above the fold in the New York Times over the ‎weekend. The first was about the seemingly never-ending Russia probe. The second was about the Labor Department reporting the lowest unemployment rate in nearly 20 years. Which of these two stories do you think American voters care more about?

http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/ ... president/
A little more than a week after fantasizing about impeaching Donald Trump, CBS drama The Good Fight featured multiple scenes that saw a series regular discussing assassinating the president to usher in “regime change.”
Nothing to see here, move along.

Pawpaw wrote:Comey, Clinton, McCabe and Lynch Officially Referred For Criminal Investigation
Eleven House Republicans have sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director Christopher Wray officially referring Hillary Clinton, fired FBI Director James Comey, fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for criminal investigation. FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who were caught sending hundreds of anti-Trump text messages during the Clinton investigation, have also been referred for criminal investigation. U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was tapped by Sessions a few weeks ago to investigate the FBI's handling of the Clinton email probe, was copied on the request.
Quick, someone go wake up AG Sessions!

I expect nothing from this referral, no indictments, no arrests, no trials. Bread and circuses.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

The FBI raided President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen’s home, office and hotel room Monday to seize a collection of documents, Fox News has confirmed.

Federal agents reportedly obtained documents related to several issues, including his payments to adult-film star Stormy Daniels in the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election. The New York Times was first to report the raid.

“Today the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients,” Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan said in a statement Monday. “I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.”

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

The Annoyed Man wrote:Pelosi, Schumer declare ‘victory’ with GOP spending bill

Republicans have killed republicanism. The torch of liberty has been passed to others.....or more accurately, it has been fecklessly set aside by people who have no honor, as they chase the golden baubles of power. The two parties are now just slightly different variations of the same flavor palette.

I see this as an opportunity. I recently became the Tarrant County Libertarian Party Precinct Chair for my precinct - 3177. From now on, I am working to replace republicans (and democrats) with libertarians. We need “NOTA” added to the ballot in Texas. Maybe the LP isn’t the answer, but I’ll find out. But for dang sure, the GOP is not. It’s time of providing a distinct alternative to democrat statism has passed.

Right now, I don’t know how a republican politician can observe what happened with this budget, and how democrat leaders are crowing that it is a victory for them, and then look his constituents in the eye and say with a straight face that he did his damn job.
:iagree:
Liberty wrote:I was a Libertarian candidate for State Rep position, and I believe strongly in libertarian causes. Unfortunately I do not believe that the party is the is going to be the most effective way to press needed changes forward. The biggest obstacle is that the party does draw votes away from conservative Republican candidates. Those who tend to be liberals will never vote for a Libertarian (the exception being one issue voters who support legalization of Weed) The party has limited resources to support their candidates, The candidates are pretty much on their own for running a campaign. Texas has never voted in a statewide Libertarian candidate. Recent presidential candidates although we may agree with them philosophically, just don't inspire many of us.

The other issue is the lack of serious career-minded candidates. Libertarian minded candidates tend to go toward one of the major parties. If you want to win you have to play the odds. Another issue is that most people believe that Libertarians are far too radical. They may find that although they believe in 90% of the platform that some issues are too extreme for them. Issues such as drug legalizition, and abortion, are not widely acceptable to social conservatives. And free markets, and eliminating regulatory agencies is frightening to the even the moderate Liberal.

I think the most important thing we need to do is to educate the voter. Websites such as Reason the CATO institute do a great job but they tend to mostly preach to the choir.

I believe that the most effective thing we can do is to support libertarian minded Republican candidates. Ron Paul was the most effective officeholder we had in forwarding the libertarian cause, he was wise enough to understand that he would never get elected on a Libertarian Party ticket.

As a voter if the race is closely contested between a Republican and a Democrat. Unless the Republican is very offensive I will vote Republican. If the vote is secure for either party I will cast a vote of support for the LP candidate. I have never yet seen an election where the LP candidate was a serious contender.

When I ran for state Rep. I could not receive an endorsement or even an acknowledgment from the NRA. My single opponent was Democrat Craig Eiland, who somehow got an A rating, although he never advanced any of our 2nd amendment agenda, he just didn't get in way too much. I believe that the NRA was afraid of alienating him rather that support someone who truly believed in our cause.
:iagree:

A Navy buddy of mine tried to talk me into voting Libertarian instead of Trump. After reviewing the policies and positions of Gary Johnson I couldn't vote for him.
In order for the Libertarian Party (or any other party to rise up) they will have to embrace traditional values, talk like Trump did to stir up his base and if elected, prove they are not D or R Lites.
I'm not going to join a party that supports abortion, making illegal drugs legal or any other position that destroys the society we want to preserve.
The Taxed Enough Already (TEA) Party was on the right track, thus why Obama administration, the Democrat party and the mainstream media did everything they could to denigrate and destroy it.

If the House and/or Senate end up in the progressive socialist party's hands after the midterm elections, the dead elephant party in both House and Senate are as much to blame as Trump. This terrible bill full of pork, restriction of liberty and expansion of government spending never should have passed through the Republican controlled chambers. Ryan, McConnell, Flake, McCain, et al are a much bigger threat to our country and cause than Trump.
