A JUBILANT, BIBLE QUOTING JAMES COMEY TWEETS THAT FLYNN ADMITS TO LYING TO THE FBI
James Comey tweets Bible verse on 'justice' after Michael Flynn charged with lying to FBI - WashingtonExaminer
NOW WE LEARN THAT COMEY UNDER OATH TOLD A HOUSE COMMITTEE IN MARCH THAT FLYNN
DIDN'T LIE TO THE FBI
Fired FBI Director James Comey tweeted a Bible verse on Friday about the virtues of justice, hours after former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of lying to federal authorities.
Quoting a passage from the Old Testament, Comey tweeted: "Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream! Amos 5:24 (see)."
THE OBAMA MARKET BUBBLE FINALLY BURSTS - A LITTLE
Beginning in March of 2009 when bank stocks rebounded and started the greatest but phoniest Fed manipulated bull market in U.S. history (engineered by wizard Ben Bernanke) we had publicly traded companies borrowing money at near zero interest rates and massively buying their own stocks (aka buybacks). This created what is called a "false wealth effect;" though the Main Street economy was still in recession with productivity abysmally low stock values, with little real earnings, were pushed up astronomically by the Fed to record highs. And this practice continued throughout the Obama years with the Dow growing from record highs to record highs up to 120%, with the gap between the soaring artificially roaring market and Obama's low growth, heavily regulated, anti-business, flat to failing economy becoming so great that the Queen Mary could sail through it.
Donald Trump inherited a colossal market bubble from Obama that having grown more than 40% since his election is now undergoing a predictable sell off correction where inflated market values are coming down closer to reality. How quickly this will happen is anyone's guess - but happen it will.
But let's be clear about what this correction is not. It's not, as some fear (or hope), Lehman Brothers and 2008 all over again. What crashed the market then was the housing and credit collapse that was rooted in the Clinton administration's reckless "homes-for-everyone" program to artificially boost the home ownership rate. This was when Clinton massively used subprime lending to put millions of low-income folks into homes they couldn't afford (see and see). That created a housing and credit bubble that George Bush inherited from Clinton and tried but failed on 17 occasions to correct (see).
Fortunately, President Trump has reversed Obama's growth killing redistribution, regulatory, red tape and anti-business policies and hugely cut individual and corporate taxes to supercharge the economy and unleash its great productive potential. As the stock market falls the economy will rise and the two will eventually achieve equilibrium and balance. Market values will be realistic reflecting actual productivity and GDP growth, and not be absurdly inflated like they are now with no relation to economic reality.
REAGAN'S BLACK MONDAY
But today's Monday crash is not even remotely close to the crash of Monday October 19, 1987 when Reagan was in power and the economy was going gangbusters. Called "Black Monday" the market that day fell 508 points dropping from 2246 to 1738 and lost a whopping 22.61% of value (see); this made it the greatest one day percentage sell off and drop in Dow Jones' history. In today's crash, however, the market lost only 4.6% of its value, making it the 33rd worst drop in history.
The good news is that the stock market (called the "Wall Street economy") is not the Main Street economy; and the economy in 1987 was growing so robustly and creating tons of good paying jobs that the major correction of Black Monday changed nothing for working class Americans; they weren't hurt by the crash and continued to prosper. Indeed, Reagan's so-called "trickle down" economics caused a virtual waterfall for the working man that in 1988 swept George H. W. Bush into office in a 40 state landslide election.
The same is true for Donald Trump; whatever the market does in correcting itself from the bubble of the Obama era and his year in office it won't adversely effect the Reagan-like pro-growth policies Trump put in place. As the Trump strong economy builds momentum market crashes like we had today might make big scary headlines (with MSM ignorantly blaming it on Trump) but the Trump Effect won't be stopped.
In 1982 the deteriorating stagflationary economy Reagan inherited from Carter turned into the worst recession since the Great Depression, up until that time.
But when Reagan's economic policies kicked in it triggered the greatest, strongest, most powerful recovery since the Great Depression. A high growth recovery where a grateful and prospering middle class reelected Reagan in a 49 state sweep; and then elected Bush in a 40 stater sweep.
A mediocre economy would be Obama's low growth, bad jobs, flat to failing Keynesian fiasco which was politically devastating to the Democrat Party, and sparked two populist middle class revolts: Sanders on the Left and Trump on the Right.
BTW, the short mild recession under Bush 41 was due to the Gulf War and soaring oil prices. Before Bush left office the Hi Tech Revolution was taking off - the economic driver of the Clinton 90s.
OMB DIRECTOR MULVANEY USES MY TERM “MAGANOMICS” AS THE ADMINISTRATION’S UNIFYING THEME FOR RESTORING THE HEALTH AND GREATNESS OF THE US ECONOMY
It's hilarious listening to Trump derangement media and Democrat nuts fakely laughing at the FISA Memo, and fakely saying it's a dud and nothing burger when they know how serious and damning it is; when they know it's worse and many times bigger than Watergate; when they know it points to criminal collusion between dirty, corrupt James Comey's politicized FBI, the crooked, rigged Clinton campaign and Barack Obama's lying, justice obstructing, perjuring DOJ to spy on and hopefully wreck the Trump campaign; and continue surveillance on the President-elect's transition team in the hope of finding Russia-related collusion crimes to wreck Trump's presidency or do whatever damage possible to shorten it.
But politically what these fools are missing in their fake downplaying of the memo's damning importance is its impact on Trump's base; for it has about 63 million unfooled Trump voters outraged, up in arms and hell-bent on seeing justice done and Comey, McCabe, Yates, Rosenstein, Steel and others going to jail for attempting with weaponized intelligence to thwart the election of their candidate, and delegitimize his presidency once in power. And if justice isn't done and the guilty like Hillary escape prosecution and jail this 63 million strong, who'll be growing significantly due to the rising Trump strong economy, will have their revenge on MSM and the Dems on election day again.
Just look at what's happening in the polls: Trump's Real Clear Politics (RCP) average on handling the economy broke 50% last week with Harvard-Harris leading Reuters (52%), CNN (51%) and Fox (51%) with an astonishing approval rating of 59% (see). And now that the economy's greatly improving and lifting all boats great and small it's impacting Trump's RCP approval rating lifting it out of the 30s and into the low 40s (42.2% today see) with Rasmussen high up at 49%.
Just think for a moment what these statistics likely prefigure for Trump and the GOP for the Midterms and 2020. With the economy being supercharged by the massive expunging of growth killing, anti-business red tape and regulations, and across the board, top to bottom individual and corporate tax cuts (as happened with Coolidge, JFK and Ronald Reagan) we are on the verge of the greatest period of innovation, enterprise and jobs creation since the Roaring Twenties, the Soaring Sixties and the immensely Prospering Eighties.
"Dumb," "fat," "stupid," "chaotic," "impulsive," "mentally ill" Donald Trump, the crudest, rudest, most deplorable president ever, as very nervous NeverTrumper Bill Kristol admitted on ABC today, is crazy like a freaking fox. As his vicious, frightened, brain-damaged enemies underestimate him, just like they did during the 2016 election (stupidly crediting his victory to Russia and the Comey Effect) stable genius Don is methodically working out a multipronged strategy (economic, border security, military, foreign policy, etc.) for political success that's already benefiting him and the GOP, as Kristol grudgingly says.
Indeed, when Nancy Pelosi warned that the Trump tax cuts was "Armageddon" it was, I believe, a prophetic sign for her and the Dems that the Apocalypse of the Left is near; that it's the End of Days or End Time for them; that
THE AGE OF LIBERALISM IS OVER
IT'S FINISHED WITH, DONE
AND A NEW, GLORIOUS CHAPTER IN OUR COUNTRY'S
Those of my readers who love the work that I've done divining from numbers, dates and other signs the providential success of Donald Trump in both his quest for the presidency and his first year in office are going to love the discoveries I've made about the failed, short-lived Schumer Shutdown and what it could mean for the November midterms and Trump's reelection campaign in 2020.
My readers know from my writings that the powerful square number 16 is one of President Trump's most significant and auspicious numbers (the others being 7 and 45) indicating as a kind of signature effect from Providence good fortune and victory in politics. They know that Trump began his historic quest to win the 2016 presidential race and become the 45th POTUS on the 16th day of June 2015. They know that on that day when Trump made border security and ending illegal immigration the focus of his campaign that it was 16 days from the publication of Ann Coulter's brilliant book "Adios America" on June 1st ; and they know that June 16th, amazingly, was 16 days before the shooting death of Kate Steinlie on July 1st by an illegal alien in San Francisco; they also know at the time of her death Stienle was 32 years old (32 = 16x2) and her killer was 45 (Trump's presidents number). They also know that on August 16th, 61 days (16 reverse) after June 16th, Trump issued his 1900 word policy paper outlining his views on border security and immigration (see). They also know that Trump used the immigration issue to defeat 16 Republican rivals for the GOP nomination; and they know that when Trump defeated Hillary Clinton (winning residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave) it was during the 16th month of his victorious campaign (see) .
But oddly and amazingly once again I found that 16 (a number connected with the winning immigration campaign issue for Trump) was at work in the Schumer Shutdown over DACA and border security where Trump again emerged the winner.
To begin with when Chuck Schumer was born on 11-23-1950 Donald Trump (b. 6-14-46) was 1624 days old* (a four digit number encoded with 16, see ). And on the day Trump kicked off his campaign making border security his focal point Schumer was in his 64th year (64 is a multiple of 16 4x
see); and he was also in his 16th year as a U.S. Senator *.
*Schumer became US Senator on January 3, 1999 (see) .
Moreover, on September 5, 2017 when Trump rescinded Obama's illegal DACA edict (see) his presidency was in its 32nd week (32 is a multiple of 16 2x, see); and 4 months later* when Schumer and the Dems caved in and decided to reopen the government the House voted 266 to 150 to end the shutdown - a difference of 116 votes (see). This seems to indicate that when Trump rescinded DACA, it was fated politically to work in his favor in defeating Schumer and the Dems - just as the immigration issue did when he beat his GOP rivals and Hillary for the presidency (Schumer's former Senate colleague from New York**).
*4 is the square root of 16 (see).
**Strangely when Schumer was born Hillary (b. 10-26-47) was 160 weeks old (16 is a multiple of 16 10x see)
Of course an obviously significant number for Donald Trump is 45, his president's number. As I noted elsewhere the square of 45 or 2025 (45x45 = 2025) possibly denotes the year that Trump's presidency would end after serving two full terms.
Now Trump's victory over Schumer and the Dems on the DACA driven government shutdown seems to foreshadow his fate in the midterms and 2020 election. For from the date of Trump's victory on January 22nd to the midterm election on November 3rd is exactly 290 days. What's significant about this number is that it's a multiple of 145 2x. Indeed, 145 + 145 not only could signify that the midterms will belong to Trump but that he the 45th President will have two four-year terms and retire in 2025 without impeachment - which would likely happen if the Democrats won back the House.
THE 2020 ELECTION
Which brings us to the next presidential election on November 3, 2020. Oddly, from the end of the brief shutdown on January 22nd to election day is exactly 1016 days (the 16th number of the 1000 series, see); amazingly 1016 days translates into 145 weeks (the 45th number of the 100 series). This seems analogous to Trump defeating HIllary and winning the battle for the 45th presidency 16 months into the 2016 campaign. Amazing, isn't it?
OBAMA, DACA AND THE SHUTDOWN
Barack Obama was the 44th President of the United States. On June 15, 2012 Obama created a new policy calling for deferred legal action for certain young people who came to the U.S. as children illegally. Obama called the program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA. You will notice that DACA has 4 letters, and that it begins with "D" the 4th letter of the alphabet.
On November 8, 2016 Donald Trump won the presidency on what started 16 (4x4) months earlier as a campaign principally motivated by the border security and illegal alien issues. On January 25, 2018, 444 days later (see), Donald Trump outsmarting the Dems issued his plan for border security and immigration reform offering 1.8 million illegal DACA aliens a path to citizenship after 12 years (12 is a multiple of 4 3x or 4+4+4).
Oddly Trump's plan has 4 pillars: building the wall, amnesty for 1.8 million illegals, and ending both the chain migration and the lottery diversity fiascos. Also odd is that Trump issued his plan 4 days after his victory over the Dems and Shutdown Schumer (see). When we add together the 4 digits of the triplet number 444 and the number of pillars in the plan which is 4, we get the number 16: 4+4+4+4 = 16.
Or, to put it another way, as January 25, 2018, the day Trump issued his plan for DACA reform, was 444 days after he won the election, and January 25th was 4 days after Trump defeated Shutdown Schumer and the Dems forcing them to reopen the government (see) , this too gives us the number 4 4x which is 16.
As my readers know I've written passionately and extensively that Donald Trump (still greatly underestimated by Democrats) is the Republican FDR - without the New Deal. And that when he leaves office in 2025 he will have created a new epoch in American political history just as FDR did. I've written that there are signs indicating Trump's great FDR-like destiny: that he was the 7th New Yorker after FDR to become President; that his victory on November 8, 2016 landed on the 84th anniversary of FDR's defeat of Herbert Hoover; that Trump's parents Fred and Mary Ann were married in New York in 1936, the year FDR was elected to a second term; and that both died in New Hyde Park, New York, FDR's birthplace.
Trump and his parents.
I also wrote that when the President's parents died (Fred in 1999, Mary Ann in 2000) Bill Clinton (born like Trump in 1946) was President and in his second term; and I wrote that during that term Clinton appointed Trump's sister Judge Maryanne Trump Barry to the US Court of Appeals. Oddly, and perhaps prophetically as a sign for her brother, Maryanne was born in 1937, the first year of FDR's second term.
Moreover, on FDR's anniversary of winning the presidency when the 70 year old Donald Trump beat Bill Clinton's wife it was 577 days from April 12, 2015: that was the day Hillary kicked off her second ill-fated presidential campaign; it was also the 70th anniversary of FDR's death (see) apparently anticipating her defeat, and the death of New Deal liberalism (see).
And now knowingly or not President Trump picked for his first State of the Union address a day with great significance in the life of FDR: for tomorrow January 30th is the 136th anniversary of FDR's birth - auspicious for a successful first term, Trump's unthinkable reelection and an epoch-making presidency like FDR's.
But tomorrow after President Trump delivers his address Representative Joe Kennedy III of Massachusetts will deliver the response for the Democrats. Now Rep Kennedy is the great-grandson of Joseph Kennedy, FDR's ambassador to Great Britain; and he's the great-nephew of John F. Kennedy our 35th President.
But the big question is this: will Joe Kennedy praise President Trump for his across the board, top to bottom "supply-side," "trickle down" tax cuts for the rich, middle class and corporations? For these are the same cuts based on the same theory of stimulating economic growth made by his great-uncle John (see video above) - cuts that increased the wealth of his family, his crooked, mob-tied millionaire grand dad, and boomed the economy for all Americans (resulting in a landslide election victory for LBJ in 1964).
Oh wait! Rep Joe, hailed as the "champion of the middle class" voted against Trump's Kennedynomics, middle class boosting, pro-growth cuts. In other words, this poor leftist fool (not a sensible centrist liberal like his great-uncle) is going to rebut Trump's economic policies lying that they're a bad deal for the middle class, economic growth and will only benefit rich folks like himself. In other words, just a week after Chuck Schumer's government shutdown fiasco (and with JFK rolling in his grave) Joe Kennedy III is going to give us the spectacle of another Democrat clown show.
After Trump's SOTU and Joe Kennedy's rebuttal it will become clear to the American people that there is far more of JFK in Donald Trump than there is in little leftist Joe.
(repost from March 26, 2017)
Before Joe Kennedy tears into President Trump perhaps he should first read this:
Well, as you can see, I greatly underestimated just how great a fool Joe Kennedy III would make of himself when giving his response to Donald Trump. He appeared like a drooling, slobbering, moronic 90 lb frat boy (not just drooling but frothing like a rabid dog) compared to a 900 lb home run hitting gorilla. It was the worst most ineffective response to any SOTU delivered by any respondent of either party in U.S. history. In short, it wasn't worth spit.
To be fair little leftist anti-Kennedynomics Joe claims it wasn't drool that was slobbering from the sides of his mouth. It was "Chapstick." Or did he mean to say 'Chappaquiddickstick?' He was speaking in front of a wrecked car.
IS KIETH ELLISON CHOSEN BY ALLAH AND BARACK OBAMA TO HEAD THE DNC AND STOP THE “RACIST” TRUMP PRESIDENCY? (SARCASM)
THE RECONCILIATION OF AMERICA AND ISLAM: BARACK OBAMA’S SECRET PLAN TO HEAL US/ISLAMIC RELATIONS THROUGH MASS MOSLEM IMMIGRATION
To the reader: I found this piece from Sept. 2016 in my draft folder. For some reason I never posted it, and now do so.
CALLING A FAT WOMAN FAT IS MISOGYNISTIC, DEMEANING AND UNACCEPTABLE
But letting thousands of misogynistic/homophobic Moslem fundamentalist refugees into this country (which isn't good for the safety of women and gays) is the politically correct and American thing to do. Go figure.
How is pointing out Christian conservatives fear of LGBT people a problem?
I'm not Christian. But how is expanding the community of LGBT haters in this country by letting in a flood of Syrian and other Moslem refugees good for LGBT folks?
Is there a politician in Washington today more embarrassed, humiliated and miserable than Chuck Schumer? Or more deserving of ridicule and SNL scorn? Consider this: if the President is a big fat mentally ill blob of shapeless "JELL-O," as blink first, cave in, surrender Chucky called him, then what does that make him? What are we to call the man who wimped out on DACA amnesty (betraying millions of illegals and open border nuts) and lost the shutdown battle in less than 72 hours to the "worst anti-immigrant racist," "least fit to command" president in American history?
Early last January when Chucky and the Dems were demonizing Republicans and president-elect Trump on Obamacare saying that repealing and replacing the failed law would "Make America Sick Again" by depriving millions of health insurance, Trump, responding to their lies, fired off an angry tweet calling Schumer "Head Clown" Chucky.
Head Clown Chucky's message in 2013 was that if Democrats shut down government over immigration it would be "a politics of idiocy."
That was the first and last time Trump called Schumer that. But "Head Clown Chucky" needs to be revived because since Trump became Pres the Dems have staged no better, more laughable clown show than the Illegal Aliens-Over-Americans-Pelosi-Schumer Failed Shutdown... the "politics of idiocy" just as Head Clown predicted it would be.
AMERICA LAST SCHUMER AND DEMS TELL U.S. MILITARY AND MILLIONS OF KIDS ‘DROP DEAD!,’ ILLEGAL ALIENS COME FIRST
It's like we're living on another world in deep, deep space. One year ago today Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and the Dems went bat crap crazy as history was being made. Indeed, as radical America first patriot Donald Trump (a Flag Day baby) was taking the oath of office they decided then and there to redefine the word "patriotism" for the new era. No longer does it mean for them "love my country right or wrong, and doing what is good for it." No. "Country" became a racist term for nativists and bigots; and loving it divided one from the rest of mankind, and impugned the utopian ideal of a borderless world where there's one government and country for all. For Chucky, Nancy and the Dems "patriotism" now means hating Trump right or wrong, and obstructing him on everything; and wanting America to suffer bad things and fail while he's President. And for Dems the most important place for Trump's America to fail is at our borders which they believe should be virtually erased so illegals can increase their base - and parts of this country become Mexico again.
Nowhere was this new, subversive redefinition of patriotism especially evident than when the outraged Dems rose up in defiance unanimously opposing Trump's "Armageddon" tax cuts to make American middle class workers and families prosperous and secure again. Such fervor hadn't been seen in a U.S. political party since 1776 when the Founders, ironically, went to war against England over oppressive taxation.
And now early this morning Chucky and the deranged Trump hating Dems struck another blow for their new patriotism: they closed down the government telling 1.3 million active soldiers and 9 million poor kids to
That 800,000 illegal DACA aliens are more important than them; and that unless they're made bona fide citizens (which they don't deserve) you, America's service men and women (fighting ISIS, al Qaida and the Taliban in an increasingly dangerous world) won't get paid; and you, 9 million vulnerable American boys and girls in 16 states won't have health insurance when you get sick. National defense and critical federal programs be damned! What's critical to our nation's future is defending the Dreamers, that Donald Trump fail and America continue its economic, military and geopolitical decline. It doesn't get anymore insane than this.
When you drop the letter "l" from the name "Flake" and add the word "American" you get "Fake American" - a Trump-style Stalinist attack on Senator Flake.
Thank God we're finally learning who the real, true, genuine Donald Trump is. Just when we were led to believe that our monstrous, deplorable, dangerous, evil president was a Hitler-like Aryan white supremacist nazi racist along comes Arizona Senator Jeff Flake to set us straight before he retires. According to Flake Trump, like Cuba's Fidel Castro and North Korea's Kim Jong-Un (and the late Saddam Hussein) is really a Stalin-like Marxist-Leninist socialist.
Comrade Trumpsky (center).
Now the good news is that "Uncle Joe" Stalin (a name coined by FDR) was an anti-Nazi ally of America's and Great Britain's during World War II; and that American Jews like myself don't need to fear the Final Solution coming to this country. Though Flake says that Trump like Stalin is the unconstitutional enemy of the free press and media, and uses lies, slander and propaganda to discredit networks, journalists and newsmen (using terms like "fake news" and "the enemy of the people") apparently he's not been very good at it. Apparently for all his braggadocio, bluster and oversized ego Trump is a rank amateur at being a Stalinist.
Trump may ridicule Kim and call him "little rocket man;" but compared to Kim Trump is a pint-sized Stalinist leader.
For we have it on the good authority of Vladimir Putin (a former KGB agent and expert on Stalinist strategies and tactics) Trump is nowhere near being the mature and accomplished Stalinist leader that a Kim Jong-Un is. Trump may disparage Kim and call him "little rocket man," and brag on the size of his bigger nuclear button, but it's Trump who has a steep learning curve and ways to go before he reaches Kim's high level of competence and enters the top ranks of Stalinist leaders.
The problem however is Jeff Flake leaving the U.S. Senate. Once he's gone who will replace him to fill the vital role of Senate watchdog as Trump with Putin's help (and daily secret meetings with Ambassador Kislyak) is expertly shaped into becoming the American Josef Stalin?
When 63 million American voters made Donald Trump the 45th U.S. President they knew exactly who he was and what they'd be getting. They knew he was a crude, rude, egocentric, combative dude, entertainingly loose with facts, given to hyperbole and bluster who was a bit sexist, hated illegal aliens and wasn't too fond of Moslems. They knew Trump was far from a perfect human being and would, if elected, fall far short of Abe Lincoln our most saint like President. And the man they elected with his good and bad traits hasn't changed one bit. 12 months in office and he's the same defiant, disruptive, tweeting, antagonizing, offensive, counter punching American first patriot that they saw during the campaign, and that family members and friends have known going back decades.
But those millions of Americans didn't elect Trump to undergo a personality change, and mentally and morally become a different man once in office. They didn't put him there to live up to some ideal of what a US President should be. Indeed, Trump is and will remain to his very last day in office the most unconventional, unpredictable, unpresidential president in US history sparking applause, controversy and outrage from what he says, does and doesn't do.
But more than any other issue these 63 million mostly working class Americans elected Donald Trump to change (not himself) but the economic direction of the country; they voted for him to improve their fortunes and standard of living which had been in decline for decades - but greatly worsened during the Bush and (especially) Obama years. And to the distress and consternation of his political enemies that's what our president is happily achieving.
Personal warts and all Trump is radically altering and reorienting the US economy away from the demoralizing, anti-business, growth inhibiting, redistributionist model of Barack Obama to a business friendly, optimistic, growth inducing model focused (unlike Obama) on fiscal policy, regulatory relief and changing tax laws. That is a seismic shift freeing much of the economy from stifling executive Obama era controls that in part caused the low growth, bad jobs, flat to failing economy that cost Democrats the Congress, 13 governorships, 1000 state legislature seats, the Presidency, a Supreme Court pick and much of the middle class.
TRUMP EFFECT: RECORD HOLIDAY SALES NEAR $600 BILLION; Expert: Spending Pace Not Seen Since Great Recession - Gatewaypundit.com
Donald Trump rejecting Obamanomics and its core idea of stimulating the economy into robust growth through heavy government spending, taxation and massive bureaucratic regulations is now on the verge of achieving the very booming prosperity Obama promised but couldn't deliver. Indeed, before the 2020 election (as happened before the 1964 and 1984 elections when a surging economy sparked by individual and corporate tax cuts won landslide elections for presidents Johnson and Reagan) we will witness, I believe, the greatest period of innovation, enterprise and productivity since the Reagan 80s and Clinton 90s (which were actually an extension of the Reagan years).
What we have seen over the last few weeks with two million workers (from 163 companies) receiving bonuses and wage hikes, and utilities cutting energy prices to save consumers money (who'll soon see fatter pay checks) is prelude. Watch businesses across the spectrum cut prices for goods and services as they hotly compete with each other for our business. And as we learn from the Wall Street Journal survey cited above most economists (90%) agree that better times are definitely ahead for America with only (because of the building momentum) the barest possibility of a recession. Like the Federal Reserve some economists expect modest growth; others agreeing with the Trump Administration expect strong, hugely beneficial growth lifting all boats great and small.

And what economists are seeing in their crystal balls much of the public is feeling in their gut as reflected in soaring consumer confidence and spending, and the most recent polls. Indeed, the exhaustive Quinnipiac poll (cited above) on the state of the economy is a positive 63% from 29% a year earlier when Obama left office. And though this poll (by 45% to 43%) gives more credit to Obama than to Trump (it samples more Democrats to Republicans by 11%) Economist/You Gov (see above) rated Trump's handling of the economy at 49% (its highest to date) with Reuters at 47% (unchanged from last month). By the mid-term elections expect Trump to leave Obama in the dust; and his RCP average to be in the mid to upper 50s - pulling his job approval numbers up into the mid 40s.
The stock market, new home construction, manufacturing, energy production, small business start-ups, etc. we are now very much in a rocketing Trump strong economy with Maganomics triumphing in every sector. But politics is a zero sum game; and Trump's gains mean loss for his frightened, malicious, hate driven enemies who work 24/7 to minimize or deny his achievements and pray for a market crash and recession to bring him down. In the Trump era patriotism for the lynch mob Left is wanting bad things to happen to America; that is how deranged and insane they are.
TRUMP'S APPROVAL RATING SOARS AS ECONOMY ROARS
RCP average just shy of 50%
Looks like I was wrong. Above I predicted that by the mid terms President Trump's approval rating on handling the economy would be in the mid to upper 50s. But in light of three recent polls (CNN: 51%, Economist: 51%, and Harris: 54%) I'm revising my prediction to the low 60s (see) pulling up Trump's RCP job approval average to a solid 50% - it's now slightly under 40% with CNN at 43% (see) edging out Rasmussen by a point.

WE'RE ON OUR WAY TO REPUBLICANS KEEPING CONTROL OF CONGRESS, AND REELECTION IN
DEAR APOCALYPTIC WARMUNISTS:
Here's a simple, rational, fact based lesson in climate science for your education: This good, great, fruitful Earth (that's getting greener from the increase of CO2) is in an INTERGLACIAL EPOCH: a period between two ICE AGES of global warming deglaciation where glaciers and ice sheets normally melt and sea levels rise causing some flooding in coastal areas worldwide. But don't you worry your little, hysterical doomsday heads off. Kevin Costner's Waterworld is not around the bend. No need to build arks to save humanity and animals just yet. Depending on the Sun (not anything man does) it could be centuries before Manhattan becomes a floating city like Venice with eco-friendly gondolas instead of gas guzzling cabs riding down 5th Avenue picking up fares. But by then (if such great flooding there be) millions would have fled inland to safety.
But be warned! In 10,000 years or more monster glaciers will return to Manhattan with a vengeance. Polar bears and penguins will overrun the frozen island as planet Earth (cooled by a drop in solar activity) once again enters the BIG CHILL: a long, dark, cold period of brutal, frigid, bone chilling temperatures causing global crop failures and mass starvation - all the horrors predicted in the 1970s during the ice age scare.
Over a period of thousands of years the ice grew covering New England, New York City and all of North America. Then about 18,000 years ago the massive glaciers began to recede and have been shrinking ever since due mainly to increased solar activity causing natural deglaciation.
So my dear, good, world saving warmunists enjoy the warmer weather, it won't last forever. And when it's gone our freezing, starving, sicker, short-lived descendants will look back on us with envy as a golden age of CLIMATE HEAVEN - praying to God, Gaia or whomever for global warming, melting ice and rising seas again.
DISQUS DEBATE ON MEDIEVAL WARMING
Well, I'm a Ph.D. scientist and although climate science isn't my field I do regularly pursue the scientific journals for general news and I haven't seen any news announcing that MWP has been shown to be a global phenomenon - and I'm pretty sure that I would have seen the news story if it existed because that would be pretty big news.
We'll then Mr. Ph'd you'll have to study the papers I referenced and draw your own conclusions. And while you're at it take a look at this huge scientific compilation of mostly MWP reconstructions (in the hundreds) done all over the world, and put in the form of a Google map. The red balloons are where significant warming was found.
I looked at a couple and see no claims of their disputing the fact that MWP was a local phenomenon. For example, there is nothing in the Farmer, et., al. 2005 abstract which suggests that MWP was global. This map has all the appearance of being the work of someone who scattered data points all over the globe based on the regional area covered by a particular paper but who never actually read the papers nor their abstracts to see if they supported his or her point.
Guess not everyone with Ph'ds are good at connecting simple dots. Connect all the data points (red balloons) and what you get is a global phenomenon - north to south (pole to pole), east to west - of significant warming lasting centuries.
The Donald Trump that I know, respect and love, who I've been observing on the American political stage since the start of his angry, defiant, uproarious, against all odds presidential campaign is an unbreakable, Herculean, brutally blunt, stable, iron willed, unpredictable American patriot; a disruptive force of nature eccentrically in command of himself; the comeback Tom Brady of American politics, pursuing with great energy, stamina, vigor and zeal the renewal of America and its greatness. And after 12 difficult, tumultuous, challenging months in office (that would have broken lesser men) this anti-Bush, anti-Obama, anti-establishment, PC-hating Pres is reversing 16 years of economic, military and geopolitical decline - despite the formidable political and media forces stacked against him.
Trump is succeeding, that's the reality, and its driving his enemies mad. Now if what he's achieved and is achieving for this country is rooted in a serious mental disorder then I pray that he go full-blown batshit crazy. President Trump is CRAZY to be sure: CRAZY about America; CRAZY about its people; CRAZY to make it better, richer and stronger than ever before. There is good CRAZY and bad CRAZY; but Trump's CRAZY is all good, beneficial and divine; and the CRAZIER he gets in striving to renew our country the better we will be for it. That's the bottom line.
Indeed, let the frightened, bankrupt, bloodthirsty Dems using the media and weaponized cadre of left-wing shrinks go bonkers and rage without end. Their diagnosis of the President as a dangerous lunatic and mental case is political science disguised as psychiatric science fooling only the gullible and inane. Painting Trump as an immoral, evil, monstrous psycho (an existential threat to the nation and world) didn't stop him from winning the White House; nor will it stop him from staying there eight full years.
AGAIN I SAY TO THE TRUMP
We're in the first 400 days of eight MAGA Trump years - and it's best that you tend to your own mental health. If 12 months of Trump has so broken your brains and made you deranged what will be your mental state when he leaves office in seven years? How many of you loons will fly over the edge and become the heavily drugged patients of your Trump hating shrinks? Don't you see the peril you're in? Not that I care. Watching you go mad trying to destroy Trump is one of the great pleasures of my life; and no one's enjoying this three ring circus more than Donald Trump. It's the greatest, wildest, most thrilling show on Earth, and he is the RINGMASTER.
STABLE RINGMASTER IN ACTION
No one has seen anything like it. Even Wolf Blitzer was gushing with praise. Yesterday we saw Ringmaster Trump soberly at work at the White House meeting with Republican and Democrat leaders of Congress discussing border security and immigration reform; and it was grand. Donald Trump exploiting the impossibility of getting a comprehensive amnesty reform bill passed by both houses of Congress (just like it failed in 2013) turned the meeting into a public relations coup to discredit Wolff's book; and to counter political attacks from quack psychiatrists that he's mentally incompetent and unfit for office.
Indeed, the so-called extreme, self-absorbed, narcissistic, sociopathic, racist madman looked like a normal, flexible, moderate, evenhanded CEO in command of a board meeting wanting kumbya ("love") and compromise from his subordinates to get a difficult project done. As Trump had done this thousands of times before it was old hat to him.
What we saw in that riveting, unprecedented, 55 minute meeting was the real Donald Trump every inch the sane, sensible, self-confident, in control, "very stable genius" trapping Democrats and playing them like fiddles; making sure if they shut down the government over illegals they will get the blame.
Trump vowed to sign any bill on border security and immigration reform that's put on his desk with no questions asked. What's in the works though is a House bill Trump backs on border security with a DACA component (see); a bill for building the wall, ending chain migration and the visa lottery, and allowing DACA illegals to get three year renewable work permits - nothing more. In other words, it grants amnesty to DACA illegals but no path to citizenship, no voting rights, no increase of the Democrats' base. If it passes the Senate after sailing through the House Trump will sign it into law. If McConnell can't muster the 60 senate votes needed to pass it then it will die like the 2013 bill; and the failure will be on Congresses head, not Donald Trump's.
FROM CANDIDATE CHAOS TO PRESIDENT CHAOS: THE CHAOTIC EVOLUTION OF DONALD TRUMP TO PRESIDENTIAL GREATNESS
It's not polar bears that face extinction. Bring back global warming and save the sharks.
Four years ago this week, during the terrible winter of 2014, this Russian research ship of climate scientists sent to Antarctica to study global warming got stuck in the ice and was stranded for days. Before it was free the first ice breaker sent to rescue the scientists also got stuck (see). This event inspired me to write the following:
SHIP OF GLOBAL WARMING FOOLS STUCK IN THE ICE OF "MELTING"
DEC. 30, 2003
December 30, 2003 was a very dark and infamous day for the US law enforcement and criminal justice systems - and above all for the American people. It was when lying, deceiving, corrupt, politicized Deputy Attorney General James Comey after an FBI investigation led by a lying, deceiving, corrupt politicized Director Robert Mueller appointed a lying, deceiving corrupt, politicized US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald as special prosecutor to investigate the Valerie Plame- CIA covert agent leak case. Indeed, Fitzgerald was appointed to his position after Attorney General John Ashcroft (a good, honest, decent man) was lied to, deceived and manipulated by Comey and Mueller into recusing himself from the probe. In the history of criminal DOJ investigations nothing this crooked, deceitful and shameful had ever been done.
THE UNWARRANTED SPECIAL COUNCIL PROBE
Comey laughably compared Patrick Fitzgerald to the incorruptible, untouchable Elliot Ness.
Now the purpose of the special counsel probe in Plamegate was to find the source within the Bush administration that apparently "leaked" to conservative journalist Robert Novak the identity of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame - a possible crime under the Intelligence Identities Protection Act (IIPA see). But outrageous as it was Fitzgerald's appointment by Comey (with Mueller's backing and blessing) was completely, totally, absolutely unwarranted - a waste of $3 million in tax payer's money spent over a 30 month period to find what was already known to both men and criminally hid from Ashcroft.
RICHARD ARMITAGE CONFESSES TO NONCRIMINAL PLAME LEAK
Armitage and boss Colin Powell
Indeed, on October 2, 2003, early in the investigation (90 days before Comey hired Fitzgerald) Richard Armitage (Undersecretary of State to Colin Powell) confessed to FBI investigators that he was the culprit: Novak's primary source for the Plame "leak" - which he (as he and Novak later said) let innocently slip out in idle, casual, shooting the breeze state department gossip (see). As Novak said and Armitage confirmed, "I didn't do any digging to get Plame's name; it was given to me by Armitage."
KARL ROVE AND BILL HARLOW CONFIRM LEAK
Moreover, shortly afterwards, Mueller's investigators learned from interviewing Karl Rove (Bush's Deputy Chief of Staff), and CIA spokesman Bill Harlow, that they were Novak's secondary sources for confirming Armitage's "leak." What Mueller and Comey also knew was that these three men committed no crimes under the IIPA; that the primary leak and two confirmations weren't nefarious attempts to expose Plame's covert status and hurt her in any way. In other words, what Novak received from Armitage about Plame (and then from Rove and Harlow) wasn't a real criminal leak of classified CIA information.
Consequently, because Armitage, Rove and Harlow were innocent of wrongdoing (there was no underlying criminal intent in the leak and confirmations) Fitzgerald never prosecuted them. And because Valerie Plame wasn't the victim of a crime her 2007 civil suit against Armitage, Cheney, Libby and Rove for damages done to her person and career was dismissed as no better than a frivolous nuisance suit (see). In the final analysis, Plame was the victim of her husband's lying, slanderous, malicious op-ed attack on the Bush administration.
FAKE NEWS BUSH CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY STORY
The narrative that the Plame disclosure was a serious IIPA crime was a fake news media story designed to smear the Bush administration because of the Iraq War. Nation's David Corn, the Washington Post, New York Times and hate Bush derangement conspiracy nuts accused the administration of criminally planting the story of Plame's secret identity with Novak to discredit her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, a critic of a so-called "illegal war;" and then (like Nixon with Watergate) trying to criminally cover it up.
JOE WILSON, NIGER AND YELLOW CAKE URANIUM
This is what happened: President Bush in his January 2003 State of the Union claimed (rightly as it turned out see) that Saddam Hussein sent agents to the African country of Niger to purchase yellow cake uranium to build a nuclear bomb. (Saddam later admitted to FBI interrogators that he had every intention of reconstituting his nuclear weapon's program see). This and other charges against Saddam were used to justify going to war against him.
In February 2002 the CIA sent Joe Wilson (former Ambassador to Gabon who did some work in Niger) to investigate Bush's claim. Wilson was chosen for the mission on the recommendation of his wife Valerie Plame (a covert agent who worked in the WMD and nuclear proliferation division of the agency). On July 6, 2003 (Bush's 57th birthday) Wilson published an article in the NY Times (see) accusing Bush of lying about the Saddam-Uranium-Niger connection; actually, as was later discovered, it was Wilson who was lying as the connection was real, but a deal was never consummated (see).
ROBERT NOVAK'S BOMBSHELL COLUMN
Enter conservative columnist Robert Novak. Several days after the Times published Wilson's slanderous anti-Bush hit piece Novak contacted Richard Armitage to discuss the matter (and whatever high level State Department gossip he could offer). Novak puzzled about Wilson's CIA appointment asked Armitage the following:
"Why would the CIA send Joseph Wilson, not an expert in nuclear proliferation and with no intelligence experience, on the mission to Niger?"
Then Armitage who had learned from a State Department memo that Valerie Plame a CIA employee (he didn't know she was covert) was Wilson's wife, inadvertently drops what later becomes a bombshell:
"Well you know his wife works [as an analyst*] at the CIA in counterproliferation, and she suggested that he be sent to Niger."
Then Novak learns from Rove and Harlow that Plame indeed worked at the agency. Then on July 14th Novak publishes the Wilson-Plame-Niger story in The Washington Post (see), and sets in motion the Plamegate fiasco.
*Armitage uses the word "analyst" in describing Plame when talking to Bob Woodward a month before Novak's article (see). This proves that Armitage had no idea Plame was covert and that his disclosures to Woodward and Novak were inadvertent, not criminal leaks
WILSON'S NBC INTERVIEW AND NATION'S DAVID CORN
Seven days later (July 21st) Wilson in an interview with NBC's Andrea Mitchell verifies his wife's CIA status (see). But days before, starting with Nation's David Corn (July 16th), the Bush derangement press launched a baseless smear campaign against the administration accusing it of planting the Plame story with Novak to discredit Wilson for his anti-war article. Corn also raised the possibility that the leak could be in violation of the Intelligence Identities Protection Act which carries penalties of up to ten years in prison and $50k in fines.
PLAMEGATE IS BUSH'S WATERGATE - OR WORSE
Then all hell broke lose. The press blew up the Plame leak (now called "Plamegate") into a scandal of Watergate proportions predicting that it could bring down the Bush administration like Watergate ruined Nixon's. At the end of September (2003) with the media, Democrats and CIA Director George Tennet calling for an investigation to find the leaker Bush ordered Attorney General John Ashcroft to begin a probe. That's when a very worried Richard Armitage told boss Colin Powell that he was Novak's source for the so called leak. Powell (who'd keep this hidden from Bush because he was embarrassed) advised Armitage to tell the FBI the truth. Several days later (October 2nd) he did just that.
COMEY AND MUELLER KEEP ASHCROFT IN THE DARK ABOUT ARMITAGE
Mueller, Ashcroft and Comey
Right then and there with Mueller having found Plame's unwitting leaker the investigation should have ended, with Comey telling Ashcroft about Armitage. But he said nothing. Instead, Mueller continued the probe and learned from Harlow and Rove* that they were the sources who confirmed to Novak Armitage's noncriminal, perfectly legal, innocent leak. But Comey and Mueller continued to keep Ashcroft in the dark - except on one point, and this in my view was criminal.
*Rove met with the FBI on October 24th. Harlow's meeting is unknown.
THE GREAT COMEY-MUELLER PLAMEGATE
If Comey and/or Mueller had told AG Ashcroft the truth about Armitage that would have been the end of the Plame-CIA-leak scandal. Ashcroft would have notified George Bush (to his relief) that the source of Novak's leak had been found, and that an investigation was underway to determine if a crime had been committed - or that the probe was completed and no crime found (which was the case). But Comey and Mueller did no such thing. Instead, as I said above, they launched the greatest federal criminal investigation hoax in US history - which virtually defrauded taxpayers out of millions to fund it.
COMEY FALSELY USES KARL ROVE TO MANIPULATE ASHCROFT INTO RECUSING HIMSELF
Indeed, concealing Armitage Comey lying to Ashcroft told him that the MAIN TARGET of Mueller's probe (the possible criminal source of the leak) was Karl Rove. Rove, a good friend of Ashcroft's was his advisor when he ran for governor of Missouri and US Senator. In fact, it was Rove that urged Bush to hire Ashcroft as his AG.
Ashcroft (center) Fitzgerald (right)
On December 30, 2003 Ashcroft, because of the conflict of interest mainly with Rove, recused himself from the investigation thus giving Deputy AG Comey the authority to hire a special prosecutor. Comey picked good friend and college buddy Patrick Fitzgerald a US Attorney*. In other words, Comey (with Mueller's backing and blessing) picked Fitzgerald to start a completely unnecessary criminal investigation into finding Plame's leaker and bring him to justice when Mueller and Comey knew the leaker's identity and that he was innocent of any crime. Indeed, hiding Armitage from Ashcroft and Fitzgerald's unwarranted and costly investigation became the real crime; and no sooner was Fitzgerald chosen by Comey and clued in on the details of Mueller's probe than he befouled and denigrated himself and became an accomplice in covering up the truth.
FITZGERALD INFORMS NOVAK HE KNOWS WHO HIS SOURCES WERE FOR PLAME LEAK
Indeed, Fitzgerald after reading through Mueller's file on the Plame case, and learning about Armitage's, Rove's and Harlow's roles in the "leak" wasted no time in setting his phony special council investigation in motion. As we learned from Novak who met with Fitzgerald on January 14, 2004 (15 days after he was appointed) he knew everything (see). In fact, prior to meeting with Novak Fitzgerald obtained waivers from Armitage, Rove and Harlow freeing Novak from his journalistic obligation to protect his sources and testify telling all. What Fitzgerald learned from Armitage, Rove and Harlow was confirmed by Novak. He Novak contacted them, not the other way around, about Valerie Plame; in other words, there was no conspiracy by the Bush administration to out Plame and use her to discredit her husband - like Plame and Wilson allege it did to this day.
THOUGH PLAMEGATE'S SOLVED FITZGERALD CRIMINALLY EXPANDS INVESTIGATION
With Plamegate solved (not once but twice) and nothing more to investigate Fitzgerald should have ended the probe after his meeting with Novak. But like Mueller and Comey in the three months leading up to his unneeded appointment Fitzgerald caring nothing for the law, justice or truth continued his probe and expanded it (turning it into a witch hunt) - as Mueller and Comey cheered. Power corrupts; and Fitzgerald was so corrupted by the unfettered power conferred on him by Comey that he was hell-bent on keeping and using it (and abusing it when necessary) until hopefully he'd strike gold and win a glorious place in history for himself; until hopefully, possibly, with fortune's blessing he could take down perhaps Donald Rumsfeld, or Condi Rice, or Dick Cheney for perjury, obstruction or other process crimes; or maybe he could bag the biggest prize of all: George W. Bush and get him impeached. But that was not to be.
Nearly two years after his meeting with Novak this lying, corrupt, out of control Chicagoland prosecutor indicted Scooter Libby (Dick Cheney's Chief of Staff) on perjury and obstruction of justice. Shamelessly Fitzgerald told the press that Libby was "the first official known to have told a reporter ... about Valerie Wilson" as if Libby was somehow tied to the alleged criminal leak; indeed, and laughably, Fitzgerald charged Libby with obstructing his investigation into finding Plame's leaker when he knew who it was all the time.
What a farce! From Mueller finding Richard "the leaker" Armitage, to he and Comey hiding Armitage from Ashcroft (and ultimately from Bush) this conspiracy of silence, deceit and defrauding the public of millions unspectacularly ended with Fitzgerald indicting and convicting Libby (an innocent man*) for impeding his efforts to find the found leaker. You can't make this stuff up.
*Because of his conviction Libby was disbarred losing his license to practice law. But a DC court of appeals restored his license because he convinced it of his innocence and that his trial was corrupted by false testimony (see) .
THE SUDDEN RESURFACING OF VALERIE PLAME
Why wasn't Mueller and Comey indicted for obstruction of justice? Why wasn't Fitzgerald who knowingly sent an innocent man to jail? They were the real criminals in the Plamegate hoax not Scooter Libby, Cheney or anyone else. And now we have Russiagate, an analogous media created scandal and investigation, which like Plamegate lacks a real, underlying crime - and with Mueller, this time, in the role of special prosecutor. And how did his appointment come about? It was triggered by a memo LEAKED by Comey to the press. The irony is mind boggling.
In truth, Russiagate is Plamegate II with Flynn, Manafort, Papadopoulos and Gates being Mueller's Scooter Libbys. And as a sign that Russiagate is a Plamegate type fiasco none other than Valerie Plame four months into Mueller's probe shockingly resurfaced in the news as if to remind us about Mueller and Comey: how devious, dishonest and dirty they are; and how they colluded with Fitzgerald to create (with help from a hyperpartisan press) the greatest criminal investigation hoax in U.S. history.
Anti-Trump derangement nuts (many of whom are radical crackpot one world open borders socialists) are insanely interpreting the above data as Obama trumping Trump on border security - as statistically proving that Obama richly deserves the title "Deporter in Chief" with Trump lagging far behind; that Obama was tougher in cracking down on illegal immigration from Mexico than is Trump despite his 70 point plan for immigration enforcement, promises about wall building, attempt to defund sanctuary cities and pardoning of Sheriff Arpaio.
But the hard truth is Obama virtually destroyed President Bush's immigration enforcement program which Trump is quickly and vigorously restoring - with many new tools such as expedited removals that put added teeth in enforcing existing laws.
The number of border patrol arrests that soared exponentially during the failed sanctuary nation Obama years is now dramatically, precipitously dropping.
Obama's well deserved image as a weak border security/ law and order, pro-illegal alien, anti-cop president (wanting blanket amnesty and sanctuary cities) emboldened and fueled criminal border crossings. Whereas Trump's reverse image as a tough border security, law and order, anti-illegal alien, anti-amnesty, pro-cop president is discouraging criminal crossings.
This ICE report of data through early October shows that while removal of illegal Mexican aliens were down, as The Hill reports, administrative arrests of all illegal aliens were up 30% in fiscal year 2017. It concludes that the decrease in removal numbers overall compared to fiscal year 2016 (which Trump haters are hailing as a victory for Obama) was primarily due to about 17% fewer illegals captured at the border.
THE TRUMP EFFECT
THE NEW PHONY INSANE PATRIOTISM OF THE TRUMP HATING DERANGEMENT LEFT
In the era of Donald Trump the totally insane, unhinged, bloodthirsty, lynch mob Left has radically and malevolently redefined patriotism to pathetically mean wanting bad things to happen to the United States while Trump is President.
Indeed, these anti-American nuts disguised as "patriots" want the U.S. economy to fail, the healthcare system to fail, building the border security wall to fail, the war on terrorism and destroying ISIS to fail; and because of President Trump's historic decision to relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, they want the Arab street to erupt in massive violent protests with thousands of fanatical Jew hating Moslems being injured and killed so they could blame the chaos on Trump.
And though this regional turmoil isn't happening (showing what little importance the Palestinian cause has for most Arabs) these imbecile leftists cheered the UN's lopsided General Assembly vote Friday condemning Trump's embassy move by 128-9. This they warned was a foreign policy disaster that isolated America in the world community and officially made it a pariah state. In fact, the cheers on the Left were so deafening I got the sense that these loons wanted the UN to expel us (which would have suited me fine).
But in reality Trump's embassy move in Israel has no more isolated this country in the so-called "community of nations" (there is no common unity as all nations pursue their self-interest) and made us into a pariah and outcast than did Ronald Reagan in 1983 when breaching international law he ordered the invasion of Grenada to overthrow an oppressive, unpopular, pro-Cuban Marxist regime. Then also the broken, bankrupt, dysfunctional, corrupt UN instead of celebrating the liberation of the Grenadian people (as they jubilantly did) condemned the U.S. in a 108-9 vote as if tyranny were preferable to freedom.
Then UN Ambassador Jeane Kilpatrick commenting on the UN vote defiantly said:
"The United States is proud to have participated in the liberation of the people of Grenada, and we are proud to have voted against a resolution that deplored this positive and constructive achievement."
In the months and years following the invasion and cowardly UN vote the U.S. under Ronald Reagan's leadership brought down the Soviet Union and ended the very dangerous Cold War. And to this day the Grenadian people (a strong ally of the U.S.) honor the memory of Ronald Reagan for freeing them from a monstrous tyranny.
Likewise Niki Haley (Trump's Jeane Kilpatrick) defiantly rejected the General Assembly vote threatening to significantly reduce its contributions to the UN, and deny help to nations on a case by case basis who voted against us.
Good came from the invasion of Grenada not just for its people but for millions suffering under Soviet domination; for it emboldened them to oppose their Russian oppressors and it won their respect that Reagan was a man of strength willing to use force in defiance of world opinion.
And Donald Trump is no different when it comes to the UN and Palestinian-Israeli conflict. If the UN is going to side with evil against good, with Islamofascism and Arab supremacism against a modern, peace-loving, democratic Western state, it will pay the price of shrinking U.S. donations and support; and if the evil, genocidal, Jew hating Palestinians don't end their racist jihad against Israel the U.S. will completely end funding to them - and perhaps even support a one state solution seeing that peace is hopeless and the Palis irredeemably bad. And maybe perhaps the money subtracted from the UN and Palestinians will go to Israel in the form of increased aid. That would drive the Left and Palis completely insane as it would annul the effects of their vicious BDS campaign (see).
Let Palestinian terror master Mahmoud Abbas howl like a wounded animal over President Trump's bold embassy move. It is side-splitting hilarious to hear this lying, Jew hating, genocidal dog (who wants to destroy Israel, not all at once like crazier Hamas but incrementally by degrees) banish the US from the "peace process." Peace process? What "peace process"? There's no such thing. Israel wants peace, the Palis want victory - a one state solution where Israeli Jews exist as an oppressed minority in a larger Arab Palestinian state. Israel's destruction is peace for Abbas - as it was for the world's ugliest villain, his twisted violent terrorist predecessor Yasser Arafat.
What should be done in response to Abbas? Prime Minister Netanyahu must issue a powerful counterpunch declaring that Israel will accept no nation, or group of nations, as a broker or mediator between the two peoples unless they first move their embassies to Jerusalem like the U.S.. That could possibly give the old decaying Abbas a massive heart attack and put an end to his long, miserable, worthless life of terrorism and crime.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that “several countries” are considering moving their embassies to Jerusalem after President Trump’s decision to recognize the city as the capital of Israel.
The US should throw a well publicized bonus to Guatemala taken from the cutback of $285 million in US contributions to the UN. This would send a signal to other third world countries that their foreign aid could get a very nice boost if they follow suit and move their embassies to Jerusalem. Indeed, we should cut out all aid to the Palestinians and use that to incentivize and reward nations who follow Guatemala's lead.
What was done to the Old Post Office in Washington DC should be replicated with the UN Building.
EXPEL THE UN FROM THE UN BUILDING AND MAKE IT A TOWERING TRUMP HOTEL
The United Nations is a broken, dysfunctional, profoundly corrupt international body - a failure like its predecessor The League of Nations - that does more harm than good in this world sowing discord, strife and war where it should bring unity, harmony and peace. Indeed, the UN Building would do Manhatten, New York and America more good as a Five Star Trump Hotel than a den of liars, cowards and anti-American schemes.
TRUMP THE UN NOW
AND EXPEL IT FROM AMERICA
DEMOCRATS, LEFTISTS, PROGRESSIVES UNITE!
PROTEST, OPPOSE AND RESIST
with all your might Trump's racist assault on Obama's economic legacy. If you're against this man and his self-enriching plan then show him you mean it and don't be HYPOCRITES! Let him, his family and Republicans know just how outraged you are at his robber baron tax breaks; that on moral, fiscal and economic grounds you want nothing to do with the money you'll save, and will keep paying taxes by the old, higher Obama era rates.
GIVE MORE TO GOVERNMENT AND LESS TO THE RICH
MAKE APRIL 15TH OBAMA PATRIOTIC TAX DAY
LET'S PLEDGE TO PAY TAXES AS IF OBAMA WERE STILL PRES AND GIVE THE FINGER TO TRUMP
THOSE WHO DON'T WILL BE SCORNED AS GREEDY, MONEY GRUBBING, RIGHT-WING HOGS DEPRIVING GOVERNMENT OF NEEDED FUNDS FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE PROGRAMS AND LOTTSA FREE STUFF
NEVER GIVE UP!
NEVER GIVE IN!
RESIST TO THE END!
WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BUT SOME CHANGE!
OMB DIRECTOR MULVANEY USES MY TERM “MAGANOMICS” AS THE ADMINISTRATION’S UNIFYING THEME FOR RESTORING THE HEALTH AND GREATNESS
DON'T BE FOOLED PEOPLE
IS NOT QUITE THIS
NOR IS IT THIS
In 2016 when FBI agent Peter Strzok called then candidate Donald Trump an "idiot" and a "douche" he was understating just how stupid and moronic he was. Compare Trump's "trickle down" tax reduction plan to JFK's, Ronald Reagan's and George Bush's and see for yourself how he needlessly and stupidly defied expectations and screwed himself and his family out of $$$$millions.
JFK'S TAX CUTS
In the 1960s JFK slashed taxes on himself, brothers Bobby and Ted, and his mob tied, criminal, bootlegging dad by 21 "trickle down" percentage points. When Kennedy became president the top marginal tax rate for the greedy, super, robber baron rich was 91% - FDR's wartime tax rate (he hated the rich); and one year after Kennedy's death FDR's 91% shrunk to 70%, thus enriching his family by $$$$millions.
REAGAN OUTDOES JFK
But Ronald Reagan, smarter and greedier than JFK, did something astounding: the Great Communicator convinced Tip O'Neil, the Democrat Congress and nation to outdo JFK in enriching himself and the wealthiest Americans. He proposed and got passed a literal doubling of JFK's tax cuts for the rich from 21 voodoo* percentage points to a near historic record setting 42 voodoo points (Harding/Coolidge did 52).
*One of the pejorative nick names for Reaganomics ( or Supply-side Economics) was Voodoo Economics, coined by presidential candidate George H W Bush in 1980.
Indeed, looking beyond JFK to the Roaring 1920s when Calvin Coolidge (the great business president) cut taxes on the rich from 77% (Wilson's wartime tax) to 25%, Reagan slashed JFK's top marginal rate of 70% to 28% saving himself double (100% more) in taxes what JFK saved his clan. It was WATERFALL ECONOMICS for himself and the rich and "TRICKLE DOWN" for everyone else getting bupkis in comparison - but reelecting Reagan in a 49 state sweep because of a booming economy.
THE BUSH TAX CUTS
Now do you see how stupid Trump is compared to Coolidge, JFK and Reagan? Greedy capitalist money grubbing pigs
who live endlessly for gain don't get any dumber. But it gets worse. This dummy's tax cut for himself is even smaller than George Bush's (who Trump laughably ridicules). Millionaire Bush cut taxes on the rich a stupid, low 4.5% making himself the laughing-stock of the robber class because he could've grabbed millions more. Look at this and split your sides: when Bush became president the top marginal rate was 39.6% (Bill Clinton's rate). When Bush left office it was at 35%- a modest but incredibly dumb 4.6% drop. With the Republican controlled Congress Bush could have knocked off 11.6% from Clinton's rate restoring Reagan's 28; or he could've knocked off 8.6% restoring his father's 31*. George Bush screwed himself and his family out of millions and deserves our lasting contempt.
who live endlessly for gain don't get any dumber. But it gets worse. This dummy's tax cut for himself is even smaller than George Bush's (who Trump laughably ridicules).

*President Bush 41 raised Reagan's top marginal rate of 28% to 31%.
TRUMP'S WEAK, PATHETIC TAX CUTS FOR HIMSELF AND THE RICH
But now along comes billionaire, real estate mogul Donald Trump
(the richest man ever to be POTUS) bragging and boasting that his tax relief plan is the biggest, best and boldest in US history. How can he say that when he outdoes Bush in stupidity? For where Bush lowered Clinton's 39.6% rate to 35% (which expired in 2013) Trump is cutting it down to a mere, pathetic 37%, 2.6% less than Bush. If Trump had the will he could have restored Bush's 35%, or gone lower.
What competent business man leaves so much money on the table and screws himself like this? With the top 1% unfairly paying 37% of all taxes (many of them own businesses and collectively employ millions of tax paying Americans) surely they deserve a bigger CHRISTMAS GIFT than 2.6%. WHAT INGRATITUDE! Is that how we pay back the hardest working most productive Americans many of whom started out in the lower and middle class? This is the first major tax cut in US history that favors middle class workers over upper class earners. JFK and Reagan must be rolling in their graves at Trump screwing himself so badly; and Bush is certainly relieved that Trump has replaced him in infamy as the dumbest tax cutter in US history.
But bad as it is for Trump it could have been worse. For originally he wanted to keep in place Clinton's 39.6% rate and give himself and family no tax break at all. Trump said that he and the 1% made out like bandits during the (Fed created) market boom of the Obama years and didn't need a tax break. But the Republican Congress coming to the rescue saved him from that embarrassment.
WHAT DOES THIS PROVE?
That big, bad, self-centered Donald Trump (King Greed) isn't nearly as robber baron greedy as sick demented pathological Trump haters say. Their iconic liberal hero JFK was far and away more greedy than Trump; and would be his critic from the far supply-side right (wanting deeper cuts for himself and the rich) if he were alive today.
PRESIDENT TRUMAN'S 3% TAX CUT
It just came to my attention that FDR's top marginal wartime tax rate was 94% not 91%; and that in 1946 President Truman lowered it to 91% (see).
The above article was written when Trump proposed no tax cuts for the rich on personal income. But it's nevertheless very instructive and worth reading.
Moore Won't Concede the Alabama Senate Race. But He Might Not Be Able to Afford a Recount -Yahoo.com
The absentee military vote in Alabama can't save Roy Moore and turn his defeat into victory, and he knows it; unfortunately there just aren't enough of these votes to shrink his 1.5% deficit with Doug Jones to the .5% needed to trigger an automatic statewide recount.
Moore is trailing weak on crime, pro-transgender, open borders, abortion absolutist Doug Jones by 20,715 votes. 2016 military data shows that 8,700 Alabamians are currently serving in the military: 6500 overseas, and the rest at home. Undoubtedly Judge Moore's background as a West Point grad and Vietnam vet will win him a great majority of this vote. But even if he gets 100% of it, it will cut Jone's lead to 12,000 or just under 1% to .85%. That's .35% shy of the .5% needed for a recount.
An election this close has far too many variables at play to just concede without putting up a fight. And Judge Moore is a fighter for God, country, family and faith. That's why we love him and wish him well.
But, as I said, the Judge knows this. He knows that the military vote alone can't and won't be the answer to his prayers for overturning the election that was stolen from him by false accusations of sexual misconduct spread by a malicious press (with GOPe backing) using discredited accusers who were likely paid for lying - as were Donald Trump's accusers.
As the certification process with the final tally will be completed between December 26 and January 3 the Judge in the meantime is using the excuse of a close race and uncounted military ballots to justify not conceding as he searches the state for evidence of significant and substantial voter fraud. If God willing the Judge is fortunate enough to find such evidence he'll raise hell that the election was stolen from him and call on the Alabama Republican Party to join him in requesting that the state do a recount. If the AL GOP is with Moore on the recount it's more than likely the Republican administration in Montgomery will order it. But lacking party support that's unlikely to happen. Moore then will sue for a recount in court. But if that fails and he believes that a recount will reverse the election then he'll have to fund it himself. And that's where you and I and millions of the Judge's supporters come in.
It is reported that the cost of a recount is between $1 million and $1.5 million, and that the Judge has no more than $636,000 in campaign funds on hand. Now if the Judge doesn't receive a personal donation of $863,000 to finance the recount we'll have to do that for him by sending him donations. By the way, if the recount results in a victory for Moore he'll be reimbursted 100%.
But when the certification process is complete and Moore not finding any or enough voting fraud too change the outcome, what then? Should he do what the President says and concede? NO WAY! If I were Moore I'd not concede an election that was stolen from me by a hate driven media and lying accusations of sexual wrong doing of 40 years ago. NO WAY would I concede the election to a psychopathic infanticidal late-term abortion nut, the champion of sexually confused mentally ill people and illegal aliens.
Roy Moore is a man of deep faith and spiritual integrity with a mission to save our Republic and civilization from the immorality and degeneration of secular progressivism, and restore traditional values, principles and ideals. He believes in the rightness of his cause (which is that of true conservatism) and that God and history are on his side whether he reverses the election or not. Judge Moore's candidacy as is his life is a crusade not a political campaign. And his crusade, an inspiration to us all, won't end until God takes him from this world to the better place in Heaven that he richly deserves.

Moore looking into ‘numerous reported cases of voter fraud’ after Alabama Senate race loss | FOX31 Denver
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama Republican Roy Moore on Friday told supporters that the “battle is not over” in Alabama’s Senate race even though President Donald Trump and others have called on him to concede.
Moore sent a fundraising email to supporters asking for contributions to his “election integrity fund’ so he could investigate reports of voter fraud.
“I also wanted to let you know that this battle is NOT OVER!” he wrote.
Judge Roy Moore filed an election complaint with the Circuit Court of Montgomery, Alabama, Wednesday night, alleging that voter fraud swung the election in favor of Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones.
Birds of a feather. Bill Clinton and Bob Menendez.
Two young female prostitutes who said they had sex with Menendez when he was partying in the Dominican Republic
It's many years now and hypocrite Democrat Senators Schumer, Gilliband and others won't demand that sexual pedophile pervert predator Bob Menendez resign with Al Franken from the Senate for his immorality, licentiousness and salacious crimes. Do they think that we the public have forgotten about the charges leveled against him first by Tucker Carlson's Daily Caller, then by Barack Obama's Attorney General Loretta Lynch (see below) of protecting a registered child predator on his staff and being a child predator himself? That in the Dominican Republic he attended wild sex parties where he had sex with underaged teenage hookers arranged by US millionaire, medicare fraudster and friend Sal Melgen (see). Why was there never an ethics committee investigation into Menendez's pedophilia crimes? Why isn't there one now?
Frankengropper standing near pal pedophile degenerate Bob Menendez.
Why didn't Al Franken when he announced his resignation find it strange that after all these years pedophile Bob Menendez is still a sitting Senator disgracing the US Senate? Why hasn't Mitch McConnell and the Republicans spoken out on this outrage and investigated him? Why did Lindsey Graham defend Menendez as a "honest man" at his trial (while telling Roy Moore to "step down") despite his denials about his disgustingly criminal sexual behavior (see)? What utter incredible contemptible hypocrites they are, the whole rotten stinking lot of them.
Three women who made the prostitution allegations later recanted and said they were paid to level the charges. Neither Melgen nor Menendez was charged with soliciting underage prostitutes.
But in a motion Monday asking the judge to ignore the defense arguments, Justice Department lawyers say the hooker allegations "were not so easily disprovable as the defendants suggest.
Prosecutors used the defense claims to highlight previously undisclosed tidbits on Menendez's pursuit of younger woman.
Menendez’s camp said Monday that the Justice Department filing is a smear tactic designed to use the exchange of motions to dump dirt on the senator.
“The filing today shows that the Department of Justice tried to make up for weak allegations about public corruption by soliciting allegations about sex,” said Menendez spokesman Steven Sandberg. “They continue that refrain now with new salacious allegations, again having nothing to do with the actual charges in the case.”
“There is not one interview, paper, email or grand jury witness—not a shred of any evidence—that says Senator Menendez was involved in any prostitution, let alone underage women,” Sandberg said. “Period. And the government knows it.”
The filing discloses circumstantial information indirectly linking Menendez to prostitutes.
The prosecutors noted eyewitness testimony that Melgen, 61, attended a party that included prostitutes, and that he flew "numerous young women" to the Dominican Republic on his private jet.
What happened Wednesday December 6th with Donald Trump (the 45th President of the United States in the 45th week of his presidency see) standing strong with Israel (against its implacable Palestinian foes) and recognizing Jerusalem as its capital was not just the right thing to do for PEACE (in the long run), it was, as you will see, his DESTINY. You will see from signs and wonders going back to Donald Trump's birth (during the presidency of Harry Truman when Israel was born) that a HIGHER POWER was at work directing Wednesday's historic event (which I predicted would happen, but six months sooner, see).
I begin with the Jerusalem Embassy Act (JEA) which President Trump after 22 years and three presidents has decided to enact and enforce against the opposition of a failed foreign policy status quo and phony peace process that's been perpetuating the conflict causing war after war and thousands killed. What you're about to read is MIND BLOWING and can't be the work of mindless, chaotic, random chance, but a HIGHER POWER intervening in our mundane affairs.
An act to provide for the relocation of the United States Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and for other purposes.
November 8, 1995.
|STATUTES AT LARGE|
109 Stat. 398
You will notice that the JEA, passed by the 104th Congress when Bill Clinton was President, was PUBLIC LAW 104-45 - five digits that end in 45, Donald Trump's president's number. And it appears that by an Act of Providence (who else can do such extraordinary things?) that it became law (though unsigned by Bill Clinton) on of all dates, NOVEMBER 8, 1995 21 years to the day that Trump beat Clinton's wife* and was elected 45th President.
*Oddly, the Congress presented the JEA (passed on October 24, 1995) to President Clinton on October 26th, Hillary's 48th birthday (see). Because Clinton didn't return it to the House signed it became law on November 8, 1995.
This tells me and should tell you that something more and higher than mortal man was at work in Donald Trump's history making declaration Wednesday - and that much good eventually will come from it.
BUT THERE'S MORE
On November 8, 1995, the day that bill
Result: 18,0 days
When the JEA became law on 11-8-1995 the Jewish State of Israel, born May 14, 1948, was exactly, precisely, amazingly in the 17,345th day of its existence (see). That's another five digit number strangely ending in 45 prophetically anticipating it seems that Israel would have to wait till the election of the 45th US President on a November 8th election date for America to finally move its embassy to Jerusalem. And apparently this would be the best time to do it.
The odds against the above "coincidences" being mere, meaningless chance events are incalculable. But here is where it truly gets profound. From many articles posted on this site my readers know that the number 7 (and its multiples 14, 21, 84 etc.) is one of President Trump's two most significant and politically auspicious numbers (the other being 16 see)*. ). My readers know that on Inauguration Day when Donald Trump was sworn in as 45th POTUS he was exactly, precisely 70 years, 7 months and 7 days old (
*So much for Trump being the great, world ending, 666 beast of the apocalypse, as some believe.
My readers know that April 7th (77 days after the inaugural) was Donald Trump's best day of his first 100 days. That was the day Trump ordered the bombing of the Syrian airbase (Syrian time) for Assad's chemical weapon's attack on innocent civilians; and Neil Gorsuch was sworn in as Supreme Court judge (see) .
My readers know that when Donald Trump (who'd make an issue of respecting the American flag) was born on June 14, 1946 it was the 169th anniversary of Flag Day; this commemorates the day in 1777 (a year with triple 7s) when the Stars and Stripes by an act of Congress was officially made our nation's flag (see).
My readers know that on the day the President ACTUALLY won the 2016 election (in the early morning hours of November 9th) it was exactly 87,787 days from 7-4-1776 our Founding Moment (both dates are encoded with the number 7 thrice see).
My readers know that when Donald Trump won the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention it fell on the 21st day of the 7th month of July (21 = 7+7+7 see).
My readers also know that three months later when the 70 year old Trump won election he was the 7th presidential candidate from New York State after Franklin Roosevelt to do so (see); and they know that his odds defying defeat of Hillary Clinton* auspiciously fell on the 84th anniversary of FDR's victory over Hoover (84 = 12x7 see).
*Strngely, Hillary kicked off her presidential campaign on April 12, 2015 on the 70th anniversary of FDR's death only to lose the election to the 70 year old Trump on the anniversary of FDR's election victory (see).
However, though FDR (friend of Saudi King Fahd as seen above) wasn't friendly to the idea of a Jewish state in Palestine (see) he inadvertently made its legitimate existence certain by choosing pro-Zionist Harry Truman as his Vice President (see below). And it was during the Truman presidency that Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, the state of Israel and its current prime minister Bibi Netanyahu were born.
TRUMP, ISRAEL AND THE NUMBER 7
But the number 7 (and its multiples) seem also to be prophetically meaningful and significant for President Trump in relation to Israel. For both Trump and Israel were born on a Friday (when the Jewish Sabbath begins) on the 14th day of the month (14 = 7+7); and on May 14, 1948 (the day Israel was born) Trump, amazingly, was exactly 700 days young (see). Moreover, when the JEA was passed by Congress on Nov. 8, 1995 Trump was 49 years old (49 = 7x7 see). And more amazing still, on the 21st anniversary of the JEA (21 = 7+7+7), the day Trump was elected president,

DONALD TRUMP: THE AMAZING “COINCIDENCE” OF HIS ELECTION AND THE 1995 JERUSALEM EMBASSY ACT, AND THE END OF THE TWO STATE SOLUTION
As you will see below the language used in the Comey memo is not Trump-speak.
Why is the corrupt, crooked, Trump hating, witch hunting, out of control Robert Mueller keeping all seven memos of Jim Comey's meeting with Donald Trump secret? Representative Trey Gowdy who read the memos in their entirety gives us the astonishing, revelatory answer:
"They [the memos] would be defense Exhibit A in an obstruction of justice case — not prosecution exhibit, defense Exhibit A. If Comey felt obstructed, he did a masterful job of keeping it out of the memos."
In other words, in an obstruction of justice case against President Trump, based on the 28 dubious words of the leaked portion of the memos (the only part Comey wanted the public to see) the rest of the memos would completely undermine Mueller's case and vindicate the President that he didn't fire Comey because of Flynn.
In other words, Mueller is keeping the memos secret to protect his good friend Comey who lying to Congress said that he "felt the President was trying to PRESSURE him to drop the Flynn probe," and keep alive the lie that this is what President Trump did; that in his private meeting with Comey on February 14, 2017 he tried to obstruct justice; but that brave, heroic, fearless Jim Comey resisted him, and it cost him his job. What a crock of shit!
MR. MUELLER, RELEASE THE MEMOS!
JUSTICE DEMANDS IT!
With sex scandals rocking the Democrat Party and its Hollywood and big media backers a sick, depraved, foul mouth Jimmy Kimmel - a silly, unfunny, morally corrupt creature of Hollywood who's made a career of sexually humiliating and demeaning women (see the video below) - sent one of his clowns to Alabama (comedian Tony Barbieri)
to disrupt a Roy Moore rally at a church so he could get a few laughs from his vulgar, immature ABC audience of retards and losers.
to disrupt a Roy Moore rally at a church so he could get a few laughs from his vulgar, immature ABC audience of retards and losers.
The Judge, who compared to Kimmel is a saint, challenged him on Twitter to come down to Alabama in person and mock Christian values mano mano. Kimmel then accepted the challenge by making himself look like the low info idiot that he is, blindly accepting as factually true any malicious smear thrown at the Judge.
Indeed, Kimmel relying on baseless allegations that 40 years ago Moore was banned from the Gadsden Mall for repeatedly trolling for young women; and that the Gadsden police were told to keep Moore away from cheerleaders at high school sporting events, Kimmel twittered Moore that he'd "go down to Gadsden with a team of high school cheerleaders and would meet him at the mall." Hardy har har! What the idiot didn't know is that the mall and cheerleader stories were bogus and debunked. The mall manager at the time denied there was any ban on Moore (see); and the ex-female cop with the cheerleader story could not substantiate her claim. In fact, Moore's attorneys discovered that he sent her brother to prison for drug possession and had an axe to grind with him (see).
Most Alabamians, the most hard-working, God-fearing conservative people in the Union, are appalled to the point of puking by the Left Coast Jimmy Kimmels of this country; and this challenge will only serve to remind them when they vote in two weeks how Judge Moore like them (whatever his past flaws) is Christian and conservative in his values, principles and moral ideals; it will remind them just how distant he is from the coke snorting, anything goes, hedonistic Hollywood Left that's done so much to sexualize women, and turn men (like Kimmel) into disrespecting sexist pigs who have mainstreamed filth, garbage and sin that's poisoning the minds of millions and must end. In a word, people like Jimmy Kimmel are what's wrong with America. Those like Judge Moore are the solution.
ROY MOORE FOR US SENATOR!
THE MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN OF AMERICA (BORN AND UNBORN) NEED HIM!
Why should the top headline read: Trump calls Warren 'Princess Ticklefeather?' Because whenever Lizzie speaks with her squeaky little ineffective voice, making lying sounds like being part Cherokee, or the one great intellectual mother of the Occupy Wall Street Movement, don't you feel that she's doing this to your feet?
TURN ON! TUNE IN!
Yes, it's true, there have been many Republican and conservative sex offenders over the years (including pastors, clerics and Catholic priests) who lost control of their sex drives and fell into serious sin with women and children. But let's not forget that it was radical, left-wing, subversive, sin loving, tradition hating, counterculture Democrats and ACLU anarchists that unleashed the deadly, irresponsible, hedonistic, anything goes sex, drugs and rock n roll revolution of the 1960s; the destructive, pornographic, dehumanizing rebellion from the pit of hell that broke down sane, soul strengthening, character building restraints on our behavior; and since has turned this country into an insane asylum of vulgarity, obscenity, depravity, licentiousness, disease and death affecting Democrats and Republicans alike.
Indeed, the recent death of Hugh Hefner (just prior to the outbreak of the Weinstein scandal) - who's magazine popularized the sexualizing, objectifying and degrading of women into playthings of men - and the death of murderous, charismatic, authoritarian hippy cult leader Charles Manson, are reminders that what's happening today is rooted in those times.
The holocaust of abortion deaths.
Liberals can compile lists of sinning Republicans and fallen conservatives all they want; but they can't escape blame for the devastating cultural firestorm they fueled that's now coming home to roost in the raging epidemic of abortions, drug induced deaths, and sexually abused, harassed and mistreated women and children.
“I came of age in the 60’s and 70’s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then.” Harvey Weinstein.
And no one knows the 1960s better than myself. I was there at the revolution (up in arms against America) a pot smoking, pill popping, acid dropping nihilistic, socialist (pro-Russian) hippy as wild and crazy as they come. I hung out with morons and degenerates (icons of the Left) you read about in history books - the useful fools and idiots of our nation's socialist foes. With them I took a sledge-hammer to everything American wanting to shatter and destroy what was decent, good and great in our land. We violently opposed the war in Vietnam that took 50,000 lives. But how many since have died from oding on drugs, aborting the unborn and sexual disease? How many have lost their minds and gone insane ending up like garbage in the streets? HOW MANY MILLIONS AT A COST OF TRILLIONS! And yes the Democratic Left is mostly to blame for this horrific, worsening cultural mess - with its army of morally corrupt progressive educators and teachers teaching children sexual license instead of restraint .
BRINGING THE SIXTIES TO THE WHITE HOUSE
In the 1960s Bill Clinton might not have inhaled when he was given a joint, but he absorbed the libertinism of that era and brought it with him to the White House.
Since the youth quake of the counterculture sixties the President whose moral mentality was most profoundly shaped by those times was the very charming sexual predator, alleged rapist and serial adulterer Bill Clinton.
As a young man in his late teens Clinton met and shook hands with adulterer President John F. Kennedy in the Rose Garden. That meeting, Clinton said, inspired him to make the presidency the ultimate goal of his life. Achieving this, as some have rightly said, linked the 1960s to the 1990s when Clinton accelerated the moral corruption and decline of our culture by making lying, cheating and sexual immorality sexy, hip and cool.
In 2016 ignoring how badly Clinton desecrated the Oval Office by having oral sex with an intern there 65 million Democrats voted to return him to the White House so he could make it an OPEN FLY ZONE again.
AL Democratic U.S. Senate Hopeful Doug Jones: I'm Pro-Abortion Up Until 'Once a Baby Is Born' - Breitbart
WHICH SCANDAL IS WORSE?
ALLEGED PEDOPHILIA? OR PARTIAL BIRTH INFANTICIDE?
Who is the most immoral, depraved, inhuman and repulsive of these two candidates for the U.S. Senate?
JUDGE ROY MOORE
who 40 years ago dated underage teenage girls and is accused (rightly or wrongly) of sexual misconduct by two of them - but since has a pristine and noble record, and is absolutely not today (if he ever was) a pedophile?
OR RADICAL DEMOCRAT
morally insane abortion absolutist Doug Jones who supports partial birth abortion - the horrific pre-meditated mass murder of beautiful, sweet, innocent underage baby boys and girls just before birth? (And who swears he'll defend a child's right to be whatever gender, contrary to nature, they choose?)
WHAT IS PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION?
"It is a procedure in which the abortionist pulls a living baby feet-first out of the womb and into the birth canal (vagina), except for the head, which the abortionist purposely keeps lodged just inside the cervix (the opening to the womb). The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument, such as a long surgical scissors or a pointed hollow metal tube called a trochar. He then inserts a catheter (tube) into the wound, and removes the baby's brain with a powerful suction machine. This causes the skull to collapse, after which the abortionist completes the delivery of the now-dead baby."
Miscarried child, Adelaide Crain, a fully formed human being at just 24 weeks old. How can anyone with a spark of humanity want such unborn children murdered in the womb at any time before birth?
NOW I ASK YOU
In a country under God, the Giver of Life, who is more fit to serve in the U.S. Senate? Who will do God, His Moral Law of Right and Wrong, the Constitution and Nation more honor and good? Infanticidal psychopathic fanatical abortionist Doug Jones (a Clinton appointee*)? Who believes unborn children have no inherent right to life, as if they're lifeless things without spiritual souls? Or true, principled, conservative Right-to-Lifer Roy Moore, who wants to put an end to the monstrously scandalous slaughter of partially born, fully formed, infant children, and the brutal practice of abortion on demand (the greatest cause of death in the land)? Indeed, if God were voting on December 12th which of these two flawed candidates would He chose to do His Will?
*Bill Clinton (who vetoed the ban on partial birth abortion see) appointed Jones US Attorney for Alabama's Northern District in 1998.
THE CHOICE IS CRYSTAL CLEAR
to any right thinking American and Alabamian who's up in arms against the sick, degenerate, baby killing anti-Judeo-Christian Left - gutting traditional family values and mainstreaming perversity, atheism, materialism and sin... "profaning what's sacred and sanctifying what's profane" - turning the Good, True, and Beautiful inside out and on its head.
Judge Moore will be the ROARING LION OF THE SENATE for the rights of the unborn, and the values, principles and ideals that made America great and must be restored.
THESE 59 PASTORS ARE PROGRESSIVE LEFT-WING UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST AND PRESBYTERIAN TYPES
Because of Judge Moore's right-wing views they were opposed to him long before the pedophile scandal broke. But these 59 left-wingers are but a tiny inconsequential voice in Alabama's Christian community. With a total of 4800 plus pastors statewide these 59 are just 1.2% of the clerical population and can do nothing to hurt the Judge and effect the outcome of the election.
Anyone, anyone, anyone who owns a restaurant, runs or manages a restaurant, or worked at a restaurant as waiters, waitresses, bus boys, cooks, etc. knows that
FORMER RESTAURANT WAITRESS BEVERLY NELSON IS LYING ABOUT THE NIGHT OF HER ALLEGED ASSAULT BY JUDGE ROY MOORE.
Let me explain.
Like Beverly Nelson I worked at a restaurant as a teenager. It was a diner across the street from Francis Lewis High School in Fresh Meadows, Queens where I went to school in the 1960s. The diner (whose name escapes me but is now a Fat Boys Pizzeria see) was located at Utopia Parkway on the service road off the Long Island Expressway (aka Horace Harding Expressway). It was a part-time after school job - I also worked weekends. I worked there briefly perhaps no more than two months as I was offered a better paying job by a neighbor (a family friend) working up the street for a very busy bagel place (working the cash register). The bagel place, Bagel Oassis, still exists (see).
I worked at a diner similar to this.
Now at the diner, like young Beverly Nelson, I sometimes worked late shifts until it closed at 10:30 pm. Now everyone who has worked or eaten at restaurants until they close to the public for the night knows they stay open (with the entrance doors locked) until the patrons are finished eating; no diner or restaurant kicks out its patrons at closing time if they're still eating and drinking at booths, tables or counters.
However, and here's the rub that exposes Beverly Nelson as an evil, malicious, God damn liar: a restaurant closing its doors to the public at the end of the day and completely shutting down are two separate events. For example, when my diner closed and was empty of patrons, and I and the other waiters went home, the owner/manager and cooking crew stayed behind and continued working cleaning up the joint before completely shutting it down (switching off the lights then locking up); my diner, in fact, would stay open until at least 11 pm.
Indeed, the M.O. was no different at Oasis Bagel (which has since turned into a 24 hour deli and grill). When my late shift ended at close up time my neighbor Ralph would stay behind to it clean up and then lock it down. And as Ralph was a neighbor who lived on my block sometimes I'd wait around for him to finish his work so I could get a ride home (I was too young to drive).
But defying the common, ordinary, everyday experience of restaurant workers like myself this is not the story Beverly Nelson is giving us. On the night of the alleged assault by Roy Moore Nelson claims she worked the late shift till 10 pm. And as was apparently routine her boyfriend (if he exists) was scheduled to pick her up and drive her home. But Nelson says on this occasion her boyfriend was late and hadn't arrived when her shift ended. She says that Roy Moore then left the restaurant after her, and seeing that her ride was late he offered to take her home; she accepted the offer without reservation because she "trusted him being a DA...."
BUT HERE'S WHERE HER STORY BREAKS DOWN
Nelson said that because "there were no cell phones then*" she had no way to reach her boyfriend to see if he was on his way; or to tell him not to come as Moore would be taking her home. There's one huge problem here that no one to my knowledge has thought of:
BEVERLY NELSON ABSOLUTELY HAD ACCESS TO TELEPHONES
The restaurant which was still open (with her boss and crew inside cleaning up) had at least two land line phones that she could have used to call her boyfriend: the payphone and office phone.
*The cell phone remark is 13:20 into the video.
Moreover, as the restaurant was still open with owner and crew inside Nelson's reason for accepting Moore's offer because it was uncomfortably "cold" outside - she didn't want to freeze her poor bottoms off waiting for her guy - is a complete and total lie; there was no reason for her to step outside into the cold winter night when she could have waited for him inside the restaurant keeping nice and warm until he arrived.
Furthermore, as Nelson's boss was still in the restaurant why didn't she go back inside to alert him that if her boyfriend should arrive to tell him she got a ride home from "DA" Moore? It's not credible that she didn't do this so that her boyfriend wouldn't worry that something bad might have happened to her.
Come to think of it if Nelson's boyfriend* got a late start that night and couldn't be on time to pick her up surely he would have phoned the restaurant to tell her he'd be a bit late. Certainly the boyfriend had the restaurant's phone number in case of emergencies or delays in his departure. Also, if Nelson was stranded her boss could have taken her home once he finished closing up. As Nelson lived 10-15 minutes by car from the restaurant (her home was "two and a half miles away," she said) it wouldn't have been much of an imposition or inconvenience for her boss to drive her home. And, of course, a call home by Nelson from the restaurant and her parents would have picked her up (or sister if she had a license). Indeed, when Nelson's boyfriend wasn't available to drive her home the logical alternative would be her parents (or sister).
*Did Nelson have an older boyfriend at the time with a driver's licence and car to corroborate her story? If so who is he? What's his name? Why is Nelson hiding his identity? What is she afraid of?
In short, there was no compelling need or reason for Nelson to ride home with Moore that night. Her choice between freezing in the cold or Moore driving her home was completely false as she had the option (the most logical choice) to wait for her ride inside the warm restaurant.
But what is even more preposterous is the BS of what allegedly followed once Nelson got into Moore's car. With boss and crew still inside the restaurant (about to go home) and Moore intending to rape her Nelson says that Moore drove to the most unlikely and ridiculous place to commit his crime: the restaurant's dark parking lot. In other words, Moore took her to an extremely risky place outside a building occupied by people who could exit it at any moment and catch him in the act of violating her.
Moreover, Nelson said (as I noted above) that her house was "two and a half miles from the restaurant." In other words, along the route to Nelson's home surely there were dozens of places where Moore could have raped her in greater safety with far less risk of getting caught in the act than the restaurant's parking lot.
But what really defies credibility (as others have pointed out) is a 16-year-old girl allegedly suffering through perhaps the most terribly vile and violent experience of her life (which left her with bruises on her neck) not running back to the restaurant pounding on the door crying to her boss crew inside for help. Or when the boyfriend, moments after the incident, just happened to arrive this greatly traumatized girl was able to hide her extreme distress under a calm facade as if nothing happened; and that she was able to maintain this fake composure with her parents and sister once she was home; and then continue calm the following day with her friends, classmates and teachers at school. It's totally, preposterously, unbelievably ridiculous.
And to top off this cock and bull story this weeping distressed victim of a violent sexual attack (coached well by Gloria Allred), claims that she supported the candidacy of Donald Trump - accused last year by a dozen women of everything from groping them to rape. However, there is some doubt that Nelson voted for Trump or anyone last year; for in 2016 the State of Alabama had her listed as an "inactive" voter (see).
Does this woman really think we're so stupid as to believe her malicious, evil, moronic, contradictory story with the crocodile tears and rattled feelings after so many years as if it happened yesterday? That she kept it hidden so long until she told her sister four years later, her second husband just before they married (but not her first husband), and then her mother two years ago? And are we to believe that she was comfortable with Judge Moore handling her divorce case in 1999? That she refused to recuse herself and request another judge because of the painful memories of the alleged assault? Come to think of it if Judge Moore attacked her as she claims is it likely he would have dismissed her suit and chanced pissing her off when she had such leverage over him? By not granting Nelson the divorce in revenge she could have gone public with the assault and ruin him. Could it be that Nelson's lies about the assault was her revenge for the pain Moore's ruling caused her? It can't be ruled out as a motive - along with a little cash.
The question now is this: how big of a payout is Beverly Nelson and cash thirsty Gloria getting to smear and destroy Judge Moore with slander and lies? Who is the source or sources financing this hatchet job on his character and campaign - far and away the worst allegations to date?
Vehemently denied by Allred. But is it improbable?
That this attack is politically motivated is proved by Allred calling for an immediate US Senate Ethics Committee investigation into the alleged crime - the last thing she'd want as her client would fall apart under questioning given all the contradictions and lies. Moreover, Allred knows that the Senate Ethics Committee is for investigating sitting Senators, not candidates running for office.
Furthermore, Allred making her client's yearbook available for examination contingent on a Senate hearing before election day is laughable in the extreme - it's a stunt by a political hack to smear Republicans as well as Moore. When the Senate does nothing (which it can't) between now and December 12th watch Allred accuse it of supporting pedophilia and being cruelly insensitive to rape victims.
But in the meantime, a great conservative and honorable man is being crucified by an establishment witch hunt; and we must rally to his defense and make sure he wins his rightful place in the US Senate.
THIS PROFESSIONAL ANALYSIS COMPLETELY SHREDS NELSON'S AMATEUR, FAKE TEARS PERFORMANCE
It keeps on getting worse for Beverly Nelson. Now journalist and author Thomas Wictor believes that Roy Moore's signature in Nelson's high school yearbook is an easily provable forgery. And he is very, very persuasive. Judge for yourself....READ ON Hopefully Moore right now has a forensic expert doing an analysis ready to declare it a fraud.
Gloria Allred: 'I Haven't Asked' Beverly Young Nelson If She Saw Roy Moore Sign Her Yearbook - Breitbart
Moore's attorney demanded that Nelson's yearbook be handed over to him for handwriting analysis to test the authenticity of his signature. It appears that Nelson had Roy Moore's signature on divorce papers that he signed in 1999 when she tried to split from her first husband, and could have (probably) used it in a forgery to give her false story credibility.
BREAKING: Wolf Blitzer Repeatedly Asks Gloria Allred if the Yearbook Signature is a Forgery -- ALLRED REFUSES TO ANSWER!
A heartfelt off the cuff apology to Roy Moore by Darrel Nelson stepson of Beverly Nelson for her lying, malicious, evil accusations.
Beverly Young Nelson has finally admitted that she forged a portion of the infamous high school yearbook that she and attorney Gloria Allred used as proof of her accusations against U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore.
ALLRED THROWS WAPO UNDER THE BUS!
Three weeks ago, in a partisan effort to dismiss what is now an admitted forgery, and what at the time was an obvious forgery, the left-wing Washington Post’s Philip Bump (already a provenliar) consulted former FBI agent Mark Songer, a forensics documents examiner, to examine a yearbook produced by one of Roy Moore’s accusers as evidence he assaulted her. The expertconcluded that the “writing seems consistent with one writer.”
Devin Kelly was a deranged, anti-Christian, militant atheist (an Antifa nihilistic anarchist type) violently hell-bent on killing his Christian in-laws (who he hated because of their faith) and as many believers as he could murder, injure and traumatize. That the driving force behind his horrible crime was rage against God and Christianity is proved by his on-line proselytizing that went on for years; and more tellingly, by his first two tragic victims: perfect strangers walking outside the church he attacked. What did these two do to deserve Kelly's wrath? They were Christians, the worst kind of evil scum in his mind, shaped or poisoned by (as Chris Hitchen's would say) the same religious values, principles and ideals as his evil in-laws, and like them deserving death.
Indeed, Kelly could have gunned down his in-laws in their homes or at the mall or neighborhood food store or when walking the dog; but that would look too personal, petty and non-ideological for a committed proselytizing atheist like himself - a waste of bullets for a man with a deadly mission who wanted the world to know just how much he hated the faith, and wanted to destroy whatever little part of it he could. And he achieved his limited aim.
Devin Kelly as the anarchical, chaos loving Joker.
Truth is Kelly hated Christianity more than he hated his Christian in-laws and showed it by killing more than two dozen believers he had no relation to (his ex wife's grandmother was among the 26 dead). Indeed, by including his in-laws in a larger horrific massacre instead of killing them separately and individually he wanted to make perfectly, unmistakably, unambiguously clear to all the ideological nature of his crime. Indeed, what the obsessed Devin Kelly had fantasized doing in his violent imagination for years reached an uncontrollable boiling point that compelled him to act: he stormed into the packed Baptist church his gun blazing away shooting 450 rounds indiscriminately at everyone in sight wanting to annihilate his in-laws and every other worshiper to satisfy his lust for Christian blood. When the mayhem ended every one inside the church was either dead or injured.
Indeed, the religion that made Kelly's in-laws so personally intolerably, abhorrently hateful to him made every other believer in that church just as loathsome and wickedly bad in his view. There was only one real enemy for Kelly in the church that day: CHRISTIANITY.
But Kelly's twisted mentality which stereotyped all Christians into one great collective demonic being deserving extinction is not new in history. What he did was rooted in 18th century revolutionary France where mobs of anti-Catholic zealots under leftist dictator Maximilian Robespierre mass murdered, raped and injured priests, nuns and worshipers in churches, convents, religious schools and at festivals honoring saints. Thousands were killed and driven from France by Christian hating atheists intent on de-ChrIstianizing their country and turning it into a "Republic of Reason" (see). Believers were guillotined in public squares, or slaughtered in pews while at prayer, or burned alive as the churches they prayed in were razed to the ground. But the revolution eventually collapsed and Christianity survived in France as Napoleon put an end to the terror.
The blessed martyrs of Compiegne going to their deaths (see).
And inspired by the revolutionary French to de-Christianize their country Russian socialist revolutionary atheists under Lenin and Stalin mass murdered up to 20 million Orthodox Russians, Catholics and Protestants in the worst anti-Christian reign of terror in history (see).
Lenin and Stalin the two greatest mass murderers of Christians in history.
But was Robespierre, Lenin and Stalin any less deranged or psychotic than Devin Kelly in their anti-Christian bigotry and unappeasable hate? In his sick, violent, terrorist mind Kelly dreamed of killing Christians en masse; but because he was a powerless nobody he was very limited in the evil he could do. Whereas Robespierre, Lenin and Stalin were Devin Kellys ruling nations with great power to do evil on a grand scale. Other than the degree of power to persecute and kill Christians, morally and mentally there was very little difference between Kelly and three of the greatest mass murderers of Christians in history.
The Texas Church Massacre was a hate crime plain and simple committed by a lunatic left-wing atheist blaming Christianity for his failed marriage, conflict with his in-laws and ultimately everything else wrong with his pathetic, failed nothing of a life. For him the only good Christians were dead Christians. But in killing just 26 of them out of the 2.5 billion that populate this planet he achieved absolutely nothing in eradicating it from the world. For as soon as he killed the 26 tens and thousands of new born Christians entered this world.
DOES MAGANOMICS = SUPPLY-SIDE TRICKLE DOWN VOODOO ECONOMICS FOR THE RICH?
NOT AT ALL!
AND HERE'S PROOF:
Voodoo, trickle down, supply-siders presidents Harding and Coolidge slashed top marginal tax rates on millionaires and billionaires (like the Rockefellers) from 70% to 25%. This was the biggest, deepest tax cut for the super-rich in US history. The impact, however, was a booming, supercharged, pro-business, highly innovative, productive economy that was a large factor in ending the post-war depression of the late Wilson years (see), and unleashed the Roaring, Soaring Prospering Twenties where unemployment fell to 1.5% (unmatched until World War II). In the 1924 election a grateful, thriving expanding middle class returned Coolidge to power in a landslide 35 state victory with 54% of the popular vote (see).
Voodoo, trickle down Kennedynomics reduced top marginal tax rates on millionaires and billionaires (including Kennedy, his family and criminal dad) from 91% to 70% see. The result was a booming economy "lifting all boats" that doubled GDP to 5% from the sluggish growth of the Eisenhower years verging toward a sixth post-war recession in the 60s. And a grateful, prospering middle class wanting the good times of rising wages and wealth to continue returned LBJ (Kennedy's successor) to power in a 44 state sweep with 61% of the popular vote (see).
Voodoo, trickle down Reaganomics nearly matched the historic tax cuts of the 1920s (Reagan loved Calvin Coolidge) slashing top marginal tax rates on the richest Americans in two stages from 70% to 50% in 1981 (see), then from 50% to 28% in 1986 (see). And once again growth, productivity and good paying new jobs soared ending the terrible stagflationary recession of the early 80s; and in 1984 a grateful, prospering middle class seeing America becoming great again after the malaise of the Carter years returned Reagan to power in a staggering 49 state sweep with 59% of the popular vote (see).
In 1988 George Bush (he coined the term "voodoo economics") was given a landslide victory by a prospering middle class to continue Ronald Reagan's supply-side policies-which he pledged to do. But in 1990 Bush (to his political misfortune) breaking his pledge of "no new taxes" increased top marginal rates on the rich from 28%-31%. Now as tax hikes (as Obama adviser Christina Romer proves see), have a contractionary effect on economic growth Bush's new taxes (however slight) slowed down the recovery from the 1990 recession (caused by the Gulf War's impact on oil prices, see) and cost him the presidency in 1992 when Bill Clinton made the economy (Bush's anemic recovery) the central issue.
It is astonishing that in 2014 Bush accepted a Kennedy family Profile In Courage Award for his politically ruinous and economically damaging tax hike when supply-sider JFK would never have done such a thing.
In 1993 Bill Clinton raised top marginal tax rates from Bush's 31% to 39.6% (and increased corporate taxes to 35% see). This slowed down the recovery Clinton inherited from Bush and cost Democrats the House in 1994. Clinton understanding the damage he had done and fearing worse regretted raising taxes so high (see). But the Hi Tech-Internet-Dot Com Revolution (rooted in the business friendly Reagan 80s and the creation of Silicon Valley during his governorship of California see) swung into high gear invigorating the economy and hiding or overwhelming the growth inhibiting effects of Clinton's tax hikes.
Also adding to the rising growth of the 1990s was Clinton's reckless, insane Affordable Housing Program. This put millions of low-income folks into homes they couldn't afford turning them overnight into middle class Americans and setting the stage for the housing/credit crash of 2008 (see and see). When evaluating the booming economy of the Clinton era most analysts overlook this point.
George Bush announcing the end of the recession of the early 2000s
Two of the three supply side presidents mentioned above (Coolidge and Reagan) slashed taxes for all Americans to stimulate growth and end a depression and recession with the lion share of cuts going to the super rich (the most productive members of our society); and George W. Bush who inherited a recession from Bill Clinton (caused by the Dot-Com market crash and worsened by 9/11 see) would follow suit, but in a different way: he cut taxes on a temporary basis with an expiration date of 2010. And like with Coolidge and Reagan Bush's tax cuts worked their "voodoo" magic. Bush lowered taxes on everyone and gave the 1% rich the biggest break slashing Clinton's top marginal rate of 39.6% to 35%. The economy revived and by 2004 with the recession over Bush was reelected in a tight race with John Kerry (see) .
However, unfortunately for Bush, the sub prime loan driven affordable housing bubble he inherited from Clinton (and warned Congress about 17 times, see) thunderously burst in 2008; this had the effect of wiping out all of Bush's gains from the tax cuts and nearly plunging the economy into a depression. In all fairness to President Bush very little of the housing bubble was his doing. if Clinton like FDR had four terms the 08 crash would have happened all the same as it was unrelated to Bush's tax cuts, economic policies, growing debt and Iraq War.
In December 2010 when Bush's tax rates were due to expire Barack Obama (his massive stimulus program failing to ignite robust growth, and fearing another recession and one term presidency) extended for another two years Bush's rates keeping in place the top marginal 1%ers rate of 35% (see).
After his reelection Obama and the Republicans struck a deal to make permanent all of the Bush tax rates except for one: the top marginal rate of 35% for the rich; this was allowed to expire thus restoring Clinton's old rate of 39.6% (see).
However, the worst recovery since the Great Depression continued with the fortunes of the "disappearing" middle class slowly growing progressively worse. Whether the tax hike on the 1% rich played a part in this is debatable. But in 2015 mad as hell middle class voters headed by Bernie Sanders on the Left and Trump on the Right spontaneously rose up in revolt against the status quo wanting radical change.
And in 2016 the "forgotten" middle class voters of the rust belt states elected billionaire outsider Donald Trump president seeing in him the best hope for reversing their decade long decline.
On November 2, 2017 President Trump charting a middle course between the Steve Bannon populists (who want to raise taxes on the rich), and traditional supply-sides (who want to cut their taxes) proposed massive tax cuts for middle class families and the businesses they work for - while keeping Clinton's 39.6% rate for the top 1% millionaires and billionaires (who made out like bandits during the Obama years).
What this means is that MAGAnomics despite all the left-wing Trump derangement media propaganda isn't quite supply-side trickle down voodoo economics. As we've seen from presidents Coolidge, Kennedy, Reagan and Bush without cutting personal income taxes for the rich there is no, strictly speaking, supply side economics. The program of massively slashing taxes for middle class Americans and the businesses they work for without saving or costing the rich so much as a dime in personal taxes is something new, original and unseen before in American politics.
The question then is this: Will Trump's MAGAnomics tax cuts stimulate growth like top down, across the board supply-side cuts have done in the past? Probably not. It's unlikely that we'll see the booming economic growth of 4 and 5% we saw in the past. But grow the economy MAGAnomics will possibly doubling GDP from the sickly, pathetic, trickle growth of 1.48% of the anti-business Obama years with its growth stifling focus on spending and spreading (redistributing) wealth instead of creating it. But that should be enough to markedly improve the fortunes of middle class voters (give them a sense that their greatness and prosperity are being renewed); and this will give Donald Trump in 2020 an unthinkable, impossible, not going to happen reelection victory.
Thursday October 26, 2017 was a remarkably auspicious day if there ever was one for President Donald J. Trump. On Hillary Clinton's 70th birthday (who Trump beat against staggering odds to become President), which also was the day Trump made public new information on the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the GOP led House passed the Senate Budget Resolution (H CON RES 71) that paves the way for a JFK supply-side across the board tax cut to do for the American people today what it did for them in the 1960s: stimulate robust, rip-roaring economic growth.
The House vote was a narrow 216-212. Now the number 216 which seems random is extremely interesting and may be significant as a numerical sign of what's ahead. For not only is it the 16th number of the 200 series (16 was Trump's auspicious number during the 2016 campaign and see) but when 216 is multiplied by 4 it remarkably and significantly gives us the meaningful number 864. Why is this number meaningful? Because 864 is the exact number of days separating October 26 from June 16, 2015 - the day Donald Trump launched his odds defying 16 month victorious election campaign (see). As the campaign was a success so it seems will be the passage of Trump's tax reform agenda however great the obstruction and opposition by Dems and RINOs.
But equally fascinating is that October 26 was the 280th day of Donald Trump's presidency (see). This is fascinating because the 864 days between the start of Trump's campaign and last Thursday's House vote was exactly 2 years and 4 months, or 28 months - a factor of 280 10x (see). Amazingly, if JFK (born 5-29-1917) were still alive he'd have been exactly 100 years, 4 months and 28 days old on Thursday (see); that totals to 36,676 days - a five digit number reducible to 28 when we add up its integers: 3+6+6+7+6 =28. And mind-blowing as it is on October 26 when Trump released the JFK files it amounted to 2800+ pages of documents. Could this all be due to random chance? It's unlikely.
1962 AND 2800 WEEKS
But even more mind-blowing is that just as the House passed the Senate budget bill on the 26th day of October LBJ back in 1964 signed the JFK inspired bipartisan Tax Reduction Act on the 26th day of February (see). But here is where it gets profound: as JFK's first major speech on tax reform was made in 1962 at the Economic Club of New York (Trump's birthplace and home, see) oddly the number of days separating the JFK/LBJ bill and what the House did last Thursday are 19,602 - a five digit number encoded with the year 1962. But even more amazing is that when divided by 7 19,602 days totals 2800 weeks (see). You can't make this stuff up.
But I'm not done. Another amazing numerical "coincidence" that is likely a meaningful sign of coming success for the President is that 11-08-2016, the day he was elected, was the 56th anniversary of JFK's defeat of Richard Nixon (11-08-1960). 56 is a multiple of 28 2x (see).
THE LUCKY 7 PRESIDENT
But there's more. On January 20, 2017, at the start of his presidency, Donald Trump was 70 years, 7 month and 7 days old (see); and on that historic day he was the 7th New Yorker after FDR to become President. This establishes the number 7 and its multiples and variants as another auspicious sign for Donald Trump.
Now look at this: the budget bill H CON RES 71 (Trump is 71 years old) was first introduced to Congress on July 21, 2017 (see). July is the 7th month, 2017 ends in 7 and 21 is multiple of 7 3x (7+7+7=21). Moreover, on July 21st Trump was 37 days into his 71st year: 37x21 = 777. Furthermore, when the House on the 26th passed the bill it was 7 days from its passage in the Senate on the 19th (see).
And while I'm on this subject it's interesting to note that Trump (great defender of the US flag) was born on Flag Day June 14th (14 = 7x2) which commemorates the day in 1777 when the Continental Congress officially adopted the US flag* (see). Moreover, as it was on the 280th day of Trump's presidency that the budget bill was passed it just so happens that 280 is a multiple of 70 4x or 7 40x.
* Amazingly, June 14, 1777 was 345 days from July 4, 1776, Independence Day (see). 345 is the 45th number of the 300 series, correlating to Donald Trump's president's number. Moreover 345 days is 49 weeks a number which is the square of 7 (7x7).
It would seem from all the above that on the auspicious day of October 26 the House's adoption of the Senate budget resolution has irrevocably set the stage for the triumph of President Trump's ambitious tax overhaul plan, and by extension his election by a prospering middle class to a second term - to carry on the historic work of
MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
TRUMP LUCKY NUMBERS 7 AND 16 AGAIN
President Trump just can't get away from the politically auspicious numbers 7 and 16. The speech he gave yesterday, outlining his economy boosting tax reform plan aimed at renewing middle class families and revitalizing the business world most of them work in, it was the 287th day of his presidency. Now the number 287 not only ends in the number 7 but its a multiple of 7 41x (see). Moreover, yesterday was 7 days from October 26 when the House adopted the Senate's budget bill that sets the stage for MAGAnomics tax reform.
Moreover, the man who announced his candidacy for the presidency on the 16th of June, beat 16 candidates for the GOP nomination, and defeated Hillary Clinton in the 16th month of his campaign announced yesterday his choice for the next Head of the Federal Reserve: Jerome Powell. When Powell replaces Janet Yellen on February 1st he will be the 16th Fed Chief in US history. Also when Powell is sworn in he'll be in the last remaining days of his 64th year: 16x4=64
It's scarcely believable but the House passed the tax reform bill on the 16th day of November, 21 days from the budget bill (21 = 7x3) on the 301st day of the Trump Presidency (see) - 301 is a multiple of 7 43x.
TRUMP'S SENATE VICTORY
THE 316TH DAY AND 45TH WEEK OF HIS PRESIDENCY
This morning's passage in the US Senate of the GOP's tax reform plan occurred 16 days (yes, I said "16") after the passage of the House bill on November 16th (see). Moreover, today December 2nd, the 316th day of the 45th President's day in office is the 2nd day of his 45th week (see) .
BTW today December 2nd is Saturday, the 7th day of the week.
SENATOR SHELLY MOORE CAPITO
It is interesting to note (and and you can see in the above video) that the 7th Senator to vote for the bill was Shelly Moore Capito. What's interesting is that the first five letters of the Senator's name are the first five letters of the name CAPITALISM. Also fascinating is that the Senator is 64 years and 7 days old see - 64 is a multiple of 16 4x. Amazing, no?
AUSPICIOUS SIGN FOR MIDTERMS?
Today Friday December 22nd when the 45th President signed the massive historic tax overhaul bill into law it was 45 weeks and 5 days to November 6, 2018, the day of the midterm elections.
Moreover, it was exactly 320 days from that event: 320 is a multiple of 16 20x.
From and including: Friday, December 22, 2017
To and including: Tuesday, November 6, 2018
To and including: Tuesday, November 6, 2018
Result: 320 days
It is 320 days from the start date to the end date, end date included Or 10 months, 16 days including the end date
Alternative time units
45 weeks and 5 days MOREOVER, today December 22nd is the 336th day of Donald Trump's Presidency. 336 is a multiple of 16 21x (see).
Paul Manafort and former business partner to surrender in Mueller investigation - The Washington Post
DONALD TRUMP TRIUMPHS!!!
15 months of intensive Russia collusion investigations (FBI, DOJ, Senate committees and Mueller), and the greatest, craziest, most vicious media witch hunt in US history to find a smoking gun, has come to naught. It's not Russiagate. It's not Watergate. It's not even a Valerie Plamegate.
WHAT IS IT?
IT'S A NEW "GATE"
WORST OF THEM ALL
A UKRAINIAN BUSINESS/LOBBYING "CONSPIRACY" THAT STARTED BEFORE TRUMP'S 2016 CAMPAIGN
It's an indictment of alleged white-collar crimes unrelated to the Trump-Russia collusion probe (which remains a gigantic, laughable nothingburger); charges unsuccessfully used by Mueller (starting in September, see below) to flip Manafort and pressure him to turn against Trump whether or not he has dirt on him. Manafort is the only potential weapon Mueller has right now to nail big fish in the Trump administration going up to the top. And Manafort so far to his credit has been steadfastly uncooperative and useless to Mueller as if he regarded the charges against him as unserious and beatable - which I believe they are.
Manafort and Stone
Indeed, it seems that everyone has forgotten that late last month former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone told reporters that Manafort's attorneys told his attorneys that he Manafort expected to be indicted; it looks like Mueller was already threatening Manafort with felony charges and possible jail time if he didn't fall in line - and Manafort was convinced he wasn't bluffing. But Manafort wasn't intimidated; though like Edward Snowdon he could have fled to Russia the guest of Vladimir Putin he decided instead to stay put and fight the indictment defiantly telling Mueller to 'BRING IT ON!'
And Mueller did. Manafort and Gates were charged with a FARA violation: failing to register as foreign agents for their Ukrainian clients (an unserious crime rarely prosecuted by the DOJ); and the millions they LEGALLY earned as lobbyists is said in the indictment to be laundered as if it were dirty mob money derived from criminal activities. It's no wonder Manafort didn't flee to Russia: the unregistered lobbying charge is a
misdemeanor that's rarely prosecuted (one conviction in 50 years and no jail time), and the laundering charge is ridiculous in the extreme. Tom Delay overturned a money laundering conviction that was far more serious than this (see).
misdemeanor that's rarely prosecuted (one conviction in 50 years and no jail time), and the laundering charge is ridiculous in the extreme. Tom Delay overturned a money laundering conviction that was far more serious than this (see).
Manafort and Libby
In this way, Manafort resembles Scooter Libby who rebuffed corrupt Patrick Fitzgerald's threats to charge him with perjury and obstruction and put him in jail if he didn't comply and lie about his boss Dick Cheney in the Valerie Plame affair. In short, Manafort is Mueller's Scooter Libby loyal to Trump like Libby was to Dick Cheney. That's admirable and will be remembered by Trump if Manafort is convicted on Mueller's lame charges.
This is much ado about nothing blown up by the Trump hate media into a criminal collusion conspiracy and vindication of the Russiagate scandal which they created. George Papadopoulos a young, low level, stupid, easily duped volunteer foreign policy advisor to the Trump campaign had ties to a British professor with alleged “substantial connections to Russian government officials” - which proved false. Papadopoulos suggested that the campaign use his contact to meet with Russians to discuss campaign and foreign policy issues; Manafort and members of Trump's foreign policy team (who didn't need Papadopoulos to do this) rejected the idea; but he went ahead anyway and met with Russians who turned out to be frauds. One such meeting was with Vladimir Putin's "niece" who was an impostor.
Apparently, Papadopoulos lied to Mueller or the FBI about his perfectly legal relationship with the professor, and his perfectly legal meetings with the phony Russians (set up by the professor) to get incriminating dirt on Hillary (emails that never materialized). He was trying to be a hero and land a place in the Trump world. He was caught in a lie about when he started these Russian contacts and pleaded guilty to making false statements. And that's it. His "collusion" with Russians broke no law and were perfectly legal; if not he would have been charged with additional crimes. Papadopoulos, in short (though you wouldn't know it from MSM), is no smoking gun. He's another dead end in trying to shoot down Donald Trump.
WHAT RUSSIA RELATED CRIMES WILL ROBERT MUELLER FIND THAT THE IRS, GSA AND OTHERS MISSED WHEN INVESTIGATING TRUMP?
On Thursday September 21st this Jew was shocked to hear that liberal icon Valerie Plame of Plamegate fame, the phony made up media scandal that the Bush derangement press and Left were hoping would bring down the Bush Administration, was in the news again making headlines. What shocked me was Plame coming out of the blue and boldly promoting an article on Twitter (praised by David Duke) accusing America's Jews as lacking integrity and being evil warmongers driving America's wars. This antisemitic tweet raised such a storm that later that day Plame was forced to issue an apology where she claimed that she was misunderstood; and that by "Jew" she meant hawkish American Jewish neo-cons like Bill Kristol, whose photo she included in the tweet.
But this article is not about that incident. It's about the strange, thought-provoking "coincidence" of Plame briefly resurfacing in the news in such a noticeable way in the middle of Special Council Robert Mueller's investigation into Russiagate: a phony, made up Trump derangement media scandal about the Trump campaign criminally colluding with the Russians to damage Hillary Clinton and win the 2016 election.
Trump derangement nuts are hoping that Russiagate will be Trump's impeachable Watergate resignation disaster, when the sudden shocking reappearance of Plame is, I believe, a certain auspicious sign that they're headed for disappointment; that Russiagate will no more turn into an infamous historic Watergate scandal, that brings down a president and forces him to resign, than was Plamegate the undoing of George W. Bush (Cheney and Rove). Indeed, it might very well turn out that Russiagate will fall far short of what Plamegate was with an outcome even less satisfying to the psychopathic bloodthirsty anti-Trump Left.
In short, Plame in the spotlight was a sign that Russiagate is no Watergate and will never evolve into one. She was a sign that Robert Mueller, who was FBI Chief when Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald (picked by then Acting Attorney General James Comey) was probing the Plame affair, is another mostly failed and frustrated Patrick Fitzgerald. In effect, Plame making news signaled that Mueller like Fitzgerald (as I wrote HERE) will end up indicting a little fish like Scooter Libby (Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff) thus turning Russiagate into a Plamegate-like fiasco - a complete money wasting hoax from start to finish. And when this happens (and it will) the big winner (to the humiliation and shame of the destroy Trump media) will be Donald Trump vindicated in his view that Russiagate was a witch hunt and massive left-wing conspiracy to bring down his presidency in revenge for beating Hillary.
Above I said that Mueller's Russiagate probe will turn into another Plamegate fiasco, or something even more absurd. For Plamegate ended in the indictment and conviction of Scooter Libby (Vice President Cheney's Chief of Staff) for perjury and justice obstruction (not for leaking Plame's CIA identity to the press)*. If a Manafort or a Flynn is indicted, neither are in the Trump administration, this wouldn't even qualify as a Plamegate bust.
*Ironically Libby lied to the FBI which at the time was headed by Mueller.
The top ten highest taxed countries in the developed world include all five Scandinavian states: Denmark (#1), Finland (#4), Sweden (#7), Iceland (#8) and Norway (#9).
In other words, according to Kirkegarrd, if Bernie Sanders is to completely level with the American people (which he hasn't done hiding what he doesn't want them to know) and be perfectly frank and transparent with them about Scandinavian socialism, and specifically Denmark (the best, according to Sanders, of the Scandinavian states), then he needs to tell the truth about Scandinavian taxation. He needs to say that Danish taxpayers, upper and middle-income folks, are taxed at twice the amount of their US counter parts. Indeed, Sanders needs to tell the public that to benefit from what the Danish people have, free single payer healthcare, free pre-school child care, free college tuition and the like, they need to adopt Denmark's tax code and accept the necessary economic and financial burden of having their taxes raised by nearly 100% - 26% of GDP to almost 50%.
In other words, if Sanders is to honestly sell Danish democratic socialism to America he has to say that not only the rich top 1% millionaires and billionaires have to pay their "FAIR SHARE" of taxes, but middle class working families and small business owners (no longer the wealthiest middle class in the world see) also have to pay their "fair share." After all, the primary moral purpose of socialism is to mostly benefit the HAVE NOTS (those less fortunate defined as poor with the least wealth) at the cost of the HAVES (middle and upper class income earners who own the most wealth). And unless the Haves take care of the Have Nots, offering them for free everything they pay for with the wealth that they work hard for and earn, they are heartless, greedy, uncompassionate bastards (see)."
*Oddly enough, if I may digress here for a moment, a 100% tax increase is what was required in Bernie's home state of Vermont to make single payer work in that state.
Denmark has the highest capital gains tax in the developed world with Finland in 5th place, Sweden in 6th and Norway in 8th.
Normally, when Bernie is faced with inconvenient facts, that make his Scandinavian socialism seem unrealistic, impractical and just plain dumb for America, he dodges them either artfully or ridiculously. But this time he couldn't do that. Confronted by a Danish economist (in front of a large TV audience) who knows the Danish economy better than he Bernie conceded that Kirkegaard was right. He conceded that nothing is free; that single payer, free college and the other programs have to be paid for by taxes collected by the government. Indeed, he conceded what Ted Cruz said earlier in the debate that to pay for his socialist state taxing the rich to death isn't enough; that confiscating 100% of their wealth (and causing a depression) would still fall far short of paying the high price of socialist paradise. In sum, Bernie finally publicly admitted to Cruz's delight that without tax hikes on the middle class the heaven of Scandinavia could never come to America.
However, Bernie handled this by treating massive socialist middle class tax hikes as an investment with big short-term future returns for working Americans. He said that the return would be worth it and pay off big time in huge savings. He said that though a middle class family under his plan might have to pay $3000 or more in taxes than their paying now what they get in return are large reductions in healthcare, childcare, college tuition costs, etc. that exceed $3000 and would raise their net worth and standard of living making life better for all. In short, in Bernie's American socialist state there are only winners, no losers. Everyone prospers, everyone gains, society collectively is better off economically and financially. In short, TAX HIKES ON ALL = SOCIALIST PARADISE.
Now if there was any truth to this then Bernie would be right, and on to something good and worthwhile for all or most Americans. Indeed, only a fool would oppose paying more in taxes if it cuts his costs and makes him a wealthier person however slight - while benefiting the poor and improving their lives. In short, if Bernie was right Danish democratic socialism would be the best thing we could import from abroad.
But as Ted Cruz said in the debate typical of socialists Bernie was making promises that were unrealistic, far-fetched, that couldn't be achieved. Or, to put it another way: DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM = LA LA LAND UTOPIANISM. Socialism in all its forms (communist, fascist, democratic) is based on false promises, false hopes, false dreams (going back to Marx) of an all caring, empathetic, compassionate government making a cradle to grave good life for all its citizens through the equitable redistribution of wealth. This is what Bernie and all socialists promise. But the promise is a BIG LIE. For as you will see below there's trouble, BIG TROUBLE, in Scandinavian paradise.
Indeed, unfortunately what went unmentioned in the debate was the disintegrating state of Denmark's "model" socialist economy; and the worsening finances of its struggling middle class whose household debt is three times that of the US because of staggering higher taxes* and more expensive everything. For high taxes, as Obama economic advisor Christina Roma said, have a contractionary or diminishing effect on productivity and growth (see); and typical of high tax Scandinavian states Denmark has a low, pathetic, worsening trickle growth economy (worse than the US). Indeed, since the Great Recession of 2008 Denmark has had three recessions followed by terribly anemic recoveries (each weaker than the last). After the last recession in 2015 GDP for 2016 was under 1% at .7% (see chart below); so far in 2017 its slightly worse ( indicating a trend). With Denmark's government forecasting (actually understating) historic low growth in the years ahead its stagnating economy (like Sweden in the early 1990s) is clearly in steady decline and headed toward a crisis as its growth killing socialist tax policies catch up to it.

DENMARK SOCIALISM = MASSIVE CRUSHING HOUSEHOLD DEBT
Indeed, Bernie Sanders and the pro-Scandinavian Left are using the failing, slowly collapsing socialist state of Denmark as a model for never-to-be-democratic socialism in the US. Common sense tells us (in short supply on the Left) that the enormous and growing private debt load carried by the Danes is evidence of how badly Denmark's social state is failing them. To make ends meet and buy the things (goods and services) they need and love (which are far more expensive than in the US) Danes are going deeper and deeper into financially ruinous crushing debt; and this completely, totally and absolutely erases all the cost saving benefits of single payer healthcare and other low-cost or no cost socialist programs. It's smoke and mirrors economic deception. One big slight of hand hoax. By making food, clothes, energy, TVs, computers, cars, homes* etc., artificially more expensive (with a 25% value added tax (VAT) and other government levies and fees (a 200% tax on new cars for example), Danes are driven deeper and deeper into personal debt to pay for these things.
*This over-taxation has led to Denmark having the lowest car ownership and home ownership of all western nations. And it has put farmers, manufacturing, and general merchandise businesses under because people do not have the money to buy in excess.
Indeed, it appears that Denmark is approaching the stage where socialist Sweden was in the early 1990s: an economically wrecking imbalance between a large, growing public sector (government) cannibalizing a shrinking private sector with diminishing productivity and growth. The Denmark socialist state by degrees is greatly damaging the goose that lays the golden eggs: free market capitalism. Like broken, busted, bankrupt socialist Greece Denmark is likewise collapsing in on itself; and like Sweden in the early 1990s to save itself from becoming like Greece or Venezuela it must downsize its over bloated government by slashing taxes, spending, regulations and pensions. But what is certain is that Denmark and the other Scandinavian states have no answer for these United States.
NIGER IS NO BENGHAZI
Benghazi was a massive Obama/Clinton security failure that ignored the INTEL - followed by scandalous cover ups and lies to the parents of the slain victims and American people that a video sparked the attack; when, in fact, it was a pre-planned, coordinated operation by a defiant al-Qaida ally to avenge the death of Osama bin Ladin on the 11th anniversary of 9/11.
Niger, however, was a simple ambush by enemy forces. Nothing unusual about that in a war zone. It happened and its tragic but hardly the same as the Benghazi 9/11 attack and scandal that followed.
