So . . .GA6 and SC5 remain repub.
Okay. So what! In the last 7yrs the dems have lost well over a thousand seats across the board and now the GOP has control of BOTH the Senate and the HoR -- and now the WH. Yet, are we even close to REAL Obamacare repeal; or tax reform? No. Are we closer to REAL spending cuts or a Balanced Budget? Nuh-uh. How about the runaway costs of SocSec; any closer to any reform there? HAH!
So, excuse me for not popping the bubbly over the GA or SC "wins". I grade on actual legislative RESULTS - not merely on intentions. We get enough of that w/ the bullsh*t COMMON CORE education system.
That's my not-so-humble opinion!
I don't show enthusiasm as easily as others do. This species we know as the "GOP" has had a history of submission and weakness. Even collaboration on very progressive policies for over a century. And because of Chief Justice Roberts MIShandling of the ACA as well, I feel apprehensive over the coming bllsht "impachment trial by the GOP ledSenate.
What I can say w/ certainty is:
1. No one PRESENTLY running on the left will win in 2020.
2. GOPers are great at defeat and LOUSY when they gain majorities. And,
3. If the demcorat/ media machine is not defeated in 2020, the plots to topple President Trump WILL continue into the next term....and beyond 2024.
Our nation has been changing before our very eyes from the moment the 16thA was ratified,, and the UN was established. Yet, we have the likes of Carly Fiorina and others in lockstep w/ the dem/media machine.
I hear you Luis and concur with your points. Now and again I take little wins with joy. I still get rejuvenated being around conservative friends. There are many out and about trying their best to make a difference. There is a lot of pleasure to witness a question and answer period where a gathering of constitutional conservatives are lined up well prepared to ask the hard questions and pose the questions or complaints to the elected.
MAGA! KAG! Sweep the dem-wits to the gutter so they can play with other gutter snipes.
Luis, Vote smart for sure. After the election too many folk, I think, do not realize their real commitment starts anew to hold the elected accountable throughout their term. If the R piss away the gift voters give them they do so at the risk of losing this Republic.
well said Luis
I, of course - and agreeing with the significance of the 16th, would put the turning point at the 14th amendment.
the 2 most significant news reports I've seen the past couple days =
.'THE DEMS ARE IMPEACHING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, NOT TRUMP'
i think that's exactly right, and how most non-activist people who are supporting Trump are seeing it, -- and most of the hollering delusional progressives fail/refuse to grasp that. <-- to their accelerated demise.
. THE LEFT'S WEAPONIZING BUREAUCRACY HAS IT'S ROOTS IN LATIN AMERICA
This has the potential to be an almost unbelievably deep 'conspiracy theory'. I've been reading for a couple years that somehow our country's leftist political powers have been effectively implementing socialism in Latin America for the past couple decades or more. In some complex covert way of through ambassadors and legal agreements with our government. --- and as this article points out, the Shulosi gang's strategy to impeach Trump being exactly the same strategy currently going on in Guatemala too can hardly be a coincidence. Nor the whole deeply corrupt immigrant caravan fiasco being mostly about Guatemala (and Soros too). -- There's a whole bunch of 'goings-ons' in Latin America that involve the Shulosi coup players at a very deep level. ...and that suggests to me that what we see as HUGE in the impeachment coup going on in our nation may actually be kinda small compared to what's actually been going on.
The Nancy-House has "impaeched" the POTUS. But now she's gonna STALL from sending the 2 Articles to the Swnate - until she "knows what they're gonna do".
I do think those "Nancies" want a full trial. That would open the floodgates for Nadler to demand the "witnesses" that Schiffty didn't subpoena. Although he could have.
Their are quite a few out there...on the right... that want a full trial; and it's totally understandble. We're SICK AND TIRED of all the corruption the left has gotten away with.
But...imo...I say go w/ the quick acquittal. Go w/ the CRAP that those Nancies cooked up. THEY PRESENTED NO EVIDENCE AT ALL!
As for Ovana's DOJ/FBI; CIA; and State Dept; Fusion GPS and the FISA court...etc... that is the job of the USAG to make the case for CRIMINAL charges. All those pieces would be the exclamation point of President acquittal.
Again - jmho.
what's Mark Meadows up to?
possibly setting himself up to help ensure that R party doesn't make the same idiot mistake(it was done on purpose) as when it followed up Reagan with globalist Bush1?
Just for fun. Remember that corny 60s tv sitcom "The Monkees"? I just came up w/ a new theme for the dem/media machine:
Have ya heard?
The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals returned a closely watched case on Obamacare back to the lower courts, declaring the health insurance mandate unconstitutional while saying the rest of the law needed further analysis.
It only took NINE years.
saw this headline;
CHARLIE KIRK: GOP OUTREACH TO BLACK COMMUNITY MUST BE NEW YEARS RESOLUTIOIN
while i agree with the sentiment, kinda sorta - The wording and the manner are exactly how GOP has failed miserably with the blacks and hispanics since I've been paying attention, which was well before TeaParty formed. ..and this is one of the many sermons I had for partisan Rs that I was right about - and am still right about, and if the Party would ever listen and do it they'd prove it (<--kinda like the " learn to FIGHT damit" sermon has been proven right by Trump);
That OUTREACH (or 'reaching out') crap is the first mistake, go be among the intended audience. Using the word OUTREACH ties in with the worst part of what happens when the Party 'reaches out' , the tone of their whole spiel is saturated with 'you people'. THAT'S OFFENSIVE and attracts noone, and the Party just can't seem to grasp that or stop doing it. OUTREACH hasn't and doesn't work, stop it and try something a little more genuine and less insulting.
Luis I just read a story I just gotta bounce off of ya. would be a little surprised if you didn't already know
it was on Breitbart about Orson Bean's death, and how after his hippie recluse days OB started leaning conservative - even listening to Rush Limbaugh. And Andrew Breitbart married OB's daughter, and was turned on to Rush by OB. ...and Rush greatly influenced Andrew Breitbart's conservative growth.
so, can ya believe it?? would ya have ever bet on Rush essentially being the building block of Breitbart? man, Rush's influence credos have had a helluva week!!
