Another club wrested from the chi coms tool box -

The order came as part of a letter to Congressional committee leaders, as required under the Defense Production Act (DPA), a 1950s-era U.S. law that gives the president and Pentagon wide berth to procure equipment necessary for the national defense.

Trump ordered the Department of Defense to develop and purchase equipment to boost output of the magnets for use by the U.S. military.

The Pentagon has already asked miners to describe plans to develop U.S. rare earths mines and processing facilities by the end of July.

The socialist clown car is bouncing off the guard rails but soon there will be none on the road to the WH -

President Trump is winning “powerful rhetorical ground” in the immigration debate against 2020 Democrats, a left-wing think tank admits.

The Center for American Progress, a think tank that oftentimes drives the Democrat Party’s left-wing agenda, released a report on Monday describing how Democrats are losing to Trump when it comes to the national immigration issue and the illegality of large-scale border crossings.

Tom Jawetz, the vice president for immigration policy at the Center for American Progress, writes that Democrats’ embrace of describing the United States as a “nation of immigrants” versus a “nation of laws” will cost them votes in elections and requests that they stop accepting this “false dichotomy.”

Full blown redistribution double down by the socialists, clown car bobble heads affirmative chorus to follow soon -

Tlaib introduced her anti-poverty legislation – the Building Our Opportunities to Survive and Thrive (BOOST) Act – last month and spoke about it at the NAACP convention over the weekend. The proposal offers a guaranteed income – up to $6,000 per year – to families and individuals under certain financial thresholds via a “refundable tax credit that can be paid monthly.”

The Michigan lawmaker’s BOOST Act serves as her response to what she calls the “GOP Tax Scam,” despite the fact that two-thirds of Americans will pay less in taxes in 2018, thanks to the tax cuts.

What happened George?

Trumps new name Deficit Don. What happened to his promise of a balanced budget and paying down our national debt? He is indeed the Liar in Chief.

Also no health care plan as promised.

"Candidate Trump bragged that he would pay off the entire federal debt in eight years, but President Trump is governing as if deficits don't matter.

In fact, Trump is approaching the level of red ink from President Barack Obama’s first term, when Obama racked up trillion-dollar deficits four years in a row. Trump is on pace to do the same, starting with this year's yawning deficit of more than $1 trillion, according to budget estimates.

But there are huge differences: Trump has a growing economy with historically low unemployment and a soaring stock market, while Obama was battling a brutal downturn in the economy during the worst recession in 80 years, making it much harder to curb federal spending."

Wait just a second. You had groups of agitators sent in from every state in the Union? All 50 of them? (Almost said “all 57 states.”) . Let’s talk about this, shall we?

“In a recent radio interview with Breitbart, senior editor for The Federalist — Mollie Hemingway — put Democrat senators on blast for “willfully abandoning” Senate procedures to attack Kavanaugh. She singled out Senator Kamala Harris and Senator Corey Booker, saying they unfairly lobbed unsubstantiated accusations at the now Supreme Court justice and were never penalized for it.

“Hemingway said not punishing politicians for slander during the confirmation hearing has allowed lasting damage to be done to Kavanaugh’s reputation:

“Damaging someone’s reputation is a real harm. We think of crime as being about actual acts of physical violence, but damage to a reputation causes real harm and it needs to be taken seriously, so that these things don’t happen again. Part of it is just about people being aware of what the left does with confirmation battles, but there also needs to be accountability.”

“In a separate interview, her counterpart and chief counsel of the Judicial Crisis Network — Carrie Sevarino — doubled down on that stance. She said Democrats willingly peddled misinformation and false allegations to obstruct Kavanaugh’s confirmation.”

https://www.oann.com/conservative-columnists-call-for-democrat-accountability-regarding-kavanaugh-antics/

Well, good luck trying to get the factual truth out. Waste of time. First, they all believed her anyway, and second, they don’t care. Waste of time. They don’t give a lick about the search for truth. TpThey have their own truth and Trump is destroying faith in our institutions! A threat to our Deep State Democracy!!!

For instance, Weissman comes up with a “new legal theory” on the Arthur Anderson case and mixed with some devious tactics like withholding exculpatory evidence from the defense and coercing witnesses, and lying.....85,000 people are out of a job, some Enron execs got put in jail, and the United States Supreme Court overrode all the convictions....by a 9-0 vote and sanctioned Justice. (30 day hands slap, no penalty). No matter. Mueller put Weismann in as the dirty trick pit bull lead of his team. See, nobody cares. Ok, maybe Roger Stone cares. It was a rude awakening at 4:30 am with the press and all those swat personal waking up the whole neighborhood and all that firepower to arrest ole flamboyant Roger in his night robe. They were ready to blow the front door off it’s hinges. Had the charges in hand. Good thing Roger heard them pounding at that time of the night.

Oh, BTW, Weismann chickened out...er.....declined to testify behind closed doors. Odd. He wrote a lot of the Mueller Report and came up with a “new legal theory” of obstruction of justice that has been dismissed out of hand by the Office of Legal Affairs, DOJ and legal criminal federal law expert Attorney General Barr, as well as Trump hater Rod Roseinstein.

Countdown to the Circus. The Greatest Show on Earth. Promote it like Reality TV. Ms. Cook will swallow it hook, line, and sinker....along with a bunch of wingnuts.

PaulE 923pm - Well Paul, I guess you're right about Trump, he screwed up. There's no use of your going on treating him with kid gloves. I think it's time to take 'em off, and let him have it with all you've got.

BTW, Obama blew $8,000,000,000,000 attempting to stimulate the economy, and managed to stifle growth to under 2%/yr while no one knew what happened to the "stimulus" that was supposed quantitatively ease us out of the doldrums. Slowest recovery on record. Now you got two dozen Dems trying to outdo each other in getting us back into another recession with their loony tunes socialist programs. CA is leading the way.

Does anyone think this bullshit all over the world is a coincidence? -

The warplane was one of three Russian aircraft to enter the Korea Air Defense Identification Zone (KADIZ) early on Tuesday. Two Chinese military aircraft also entered the KADIZ, the defense ministry said in a statement.

There was no immediate public comment from Russian or Chinese officials.

The South Korean government would lodge official complaints about the violations with China and Russia, the defense ministry in Seoul said.
=============
According to the South Korean military, the Russian aircraft then violated South Korean airspace over Dokdo - an island that is occupied by South Korea and also claimed by Japan, which calls it Takeshima - just after 9 a.m. (midnight GMT Monday).

"The South Korean military took tactical action including dropping flares and firing a warning shot," the defense ministry statement said.

The Russian aircraft left South Korean airspace but then entered it again about 20 minutes later, prompting the South Koreans to fire another warning shot.

The ministry said South Korean warplanes "conducted a normal response" to the incursion, without giving further details.

@ 9:47 pm.
Punchy’s numbers are way off. A trillion dollar over budget? Try in just 8 months. In a couple of years just the interest on the debt will be as much as funding the entire sinking huge SS disability health costs. Kinda hard to get anything passed with the House owning the appropriations and so into resistance. It’s their special powers. When the whole thang implodes, you can blame Trump....and Mitch....and the whole lot of them. Until then, no cuts! NPR full funding! Party time. Medicaid for illegals and a whole new New Deal, but greener.
New two year budget deal sailing through. Nancy’s baby as she is quite happy. No more shutdowns. How cool is that.

Looks like Stuart Smiley has had enough of his exile and has completed his self directed rehabilitation program and wants back in. Too old and too late, asswipe. How does that taste now, fat fuck? Maybe Amy will let you lick her comb after she is done eating.

“Mayer is not the only person in this story showing off their hypocrisy. Franken is now concerned with due process. Mayer writes that Franken supports the #MeToo movement, but after being targeted, now spends his time “thinking about such matters as due process, proportionality of punishment, and the consequences of Internet-fuelled [sic] outrage.”

“After Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced she would be reversing Obama-era guidelines designed to punish any male student accused of sexual misconduct, regardless of evidence and without due process, Franken called the move a threat to “students’ civil rights.”

“Due process rights are civil rights, yet Franken and Mayer and the #MeToo movement ignore them in favor of a “believe all women” narrative. If only Franken could have seen the possibility of weaponized allegations before demanding due process be ignored.”

Young Democratic Socialists trained to recruit without using word ‘socialism.’


Yes…..the "socialism" label still remains a political negative! In an attempt to burnish their political appeal, young Democratic Socialists are trained to recruit by calling themselves "Green Libertarians".

Green Libertarian - I do believe that our own PaulE was among the first to pin that label on himself. Though I'm not sure that Paul intended to bamboozle us as are the Democratic Socialists with their audiences. I think he was really looking for a label that would effectively let him hide his progressive hide ;-)

I believe Trump to be mentally ill and is a danger to us and the planet in his role as President. I'm forced to look the Dems for an alternative because the Republicans including you refuse to clean house.

I can't believe I'm nostalgic for the Tea Party. At least they had some principals. the Libertarians are not a viable alternative.

Trump will be gone in a short time then we can pick up the scraps and go from there.

Gregory

I believe Paul Emery to be delusional, and a bad speller. It's "principles", not "principals" that you're looking for, Punch.

The Libertarian Party is indeed a party of principles and a viable alternative, especially in California and even for Trump haters, as there's virtually no chance of even one Elector for Trump being selected in the former Golden State.

No you're not. You publicly took great pleasure in ridiculing the Tea Party for their positions.

Do you consider Trump to be mentally ill?

Bill Tozer

Progressives confident that Trump is now toast.....very confident. Everyone they know totally believes so.

“On several polarizing issues, Democrats are refusing to offer the reassurances to moderate opinion that they once did. They’re not saying: We will secure the border and insist on an orderly asylum process, but do it in a humane way; we will protect the right to abortion while working to make it less common; we will protect gun rights while setting sensible limits on them. The old rhetorical guardrails — trust us, there’s a hard stop on how far left we’ll go — are gone.”

“Many leftists acknowledge that Democrats are less interested than they used to be in trimming their sails to appeal to moderates. Such trimming is no longer necessary, as they see it, because the changing demographics of the country give them a built-in advantage. Almost everyone I encountered at Netroots Nation was convinced that President Trump would lose in 2020. Earlier today, Roland Martin, an African-American journalist, told ABC’s This Week, “America is changing. By 2043, we’ll be a nation [that’s] majority people of color, and that’s — that is the game here — that’s what folks don’t want to understand what’s happening in this country.”

“Netroots Nation convinced me that progressive activists are self-confident, optimistic about the chances for a progressive triumph, and assured that a Trump victory was a freakish “black swan” event. But they are also deaf to any suggestion that their PC excesses had anything to do with Trump’s being in the White House. That is apt to be the progressive blind spot going into the 2020 election.”

The nighthawks are back in business bombing isis!

After at least one F-117 had been spotted flying in Nevada and Eastern California last week, Scramble Magazine is reporting that “Back in 2017, and not published by any other source so far, Scramble received very reliable information that at least four F-117s were deployed to the Middle East as an operational need emerged for the USAF to resurrect the stealth F-117 for special purposes. One of the deployed aircraft was involved in an in-flight emergency and landed far away from its temporary home base that was likely located in Saudi Arabia, the UAE or Qatar.
“During this extremely covert deployment the four Nighthawks flew missions over Syria and Iraq with Small Diameter Bombs (SDBs).

Promise kept. Not kill two regs for every new one, but 13-1. That’s overkill I can live with.

“It was an odd, geeky campaign promise for a populist presidential candidate to make. But when Donald Trump in 2016 pledged to kill two Obama-era regulations for every new one, crowds went wild.

“Those cheers stuck with him when he moved into the White House, and he put his promise into an executive order. And now as he opens his reelection campaign, Russ Vought, acting budget office director, has delivered the results sure to win even more rally cheers.

“We’ve hit 13 to 1,” he told a Heritage Foundation conference on federalism. And cutting so many regulations, he added, has saved taxpayers $33 billion.”

Update on the wax philosophical story from yesterday, aka, forcing women touch a man’s penis under the force of law.

“Just last week, Twitter permanently banned free speech activist Lindsay Shepherd after she defended herself against Yaniv’s bullying. Yaniv sexually degraded Shepherd, saying, “At least my p***y is tight not loose after pushing out a 10 pound baby.” When Shepherd responded — tamely, in comparison — Yaniv took his provocations to the next level, making fun of her septate uterus, a medical condition that can cause miscarriages among other things. “I heard Donald Trump is building a wall inside your uterus aka your ‘reproductive abnormality,” Yaniv taunted. When Shepherd had finally had enough and called him an “ugly fat man” (a perfectly accurate description, I might add), she was banned from the platform. Yaniv faced no penalties at all.”

https://www.dailywire.com/news/49798/walsh-twitter-enabling-predator-and-silencing-matt-walsh?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=benshapiro

Even the National Review weights in:

“But who said this was about waxing? This is about sex, surely. Yaniv is male — a male who has not made the surgical commitment necessary to pass as a female. On top of that, in the past year, Yaniv has presented unambiguously as a male on a number of sites including Google, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and YouTube. And on top of that, Yaniv is a male who is sexually attracted to females.

“For the women who declined to wax Yaniv’s private parts, however, the matter was simpler still. Yaniv has male genitalia. Some preferred not to touch these for religious reasons. Others, such as business owner Marcia Da Silva, didn’t feel comfortable or qualified. In the hearing, Da Silva’s lawyer, Jay Cameron, further explained that forcing his client to touch Yaniv’s scrotum would effectively be coercing “intimate services.”

“The damages to these women have been considerable, including stress and depression; at least one woman was forced to close her business. Another, a single mother who worked out of her home, paid Yaniv $2,500 to withdraw the complaint so that she could escape the expense of further litigation. Some of the women Yaniv targeted were immigrants. And as if there weren’t enough reasons to be suspicious of Yaniv, some of his comments on social media have seemed strikingly xenophobic. On Facebook, as “Jonathan,” Yaniv posted:

‘We have a lot of immigrants here who gawk, judge and aren’t the cleanest of people, they’re also verbally and physically abusive, that’s one reason I joined a girl’s gym, cause I DON’T want issues with these people . . . They lie about sh[**], they’ll do anything to support their own kind and make things miserable for everyone else.’

“It gets worse still. Yaniv is also “seeking permission” from a Canadian local council “to hold three ‘topless’ swims for people ages 12 and up, and parents would be barred from attending,”the Daily Caller reports. This swim would be for children who identify as LGBTQ2S+ and would include topless girls.

“So there we have it. An obviously predatory male is attempting to use the force of law to coerce females to touch his private parts and — unbelievably — a Canadian human-rights tribunal is entertaining this demand. Yaniv has so perfectly exposed the absurdity of gender policies that it would scarcely be surprising if he turned out to be a troll.”

Now the question is posed as Trump's "mental fitness", not whether or not I think he's "mentally ill".

What has changed since the election when he was overwhelmingly found to be fit for office by lawfully selected Electors?

Bill Tozer

Gregory (and Russ).

Saw this and though of you. Global Warming for dummies. Svensmark hypothesis explained.

“Since about 2007, there has been a notable counter-theory to the hypothesis of human-caused global warming. The counter-theory is that fluctuations in world temperatures over the past several decades have been caused more by fluctuations in the cloud cover of the earth than by increases in greenhouse gases like CO2. This counter-theory is often called the “Svensmark hypothesis,” after Danish physicist Henrik Svensmark, who proposed it.
***
“Which brings us to the Povrovsky and Kauppinen, et al., papers. Povrovsky did something that somebody should have long since done by now, which is to collect month-by-month satellite cloud-cover data for the earth for the period 1983-2009, and plot it on a graph, and then compare that graph to the month-by-month temperature graphs. What is the correlation of the two?”

It turns out to be exceptionally close:

Bill Tozer

The flimsy footnotes in the Mueller Report and Chess Tournament Gate.

“The more than 2,000 footnotes included in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Trump-Russia collusion allegations are also illuminating. Most of the citations are matter-of-fact support for claims made in the main text. But a close reading reveals that many of the footnotes raise more questions than they answer, especially regarding Mueller’s methods and intent. Some footnotes show that key allegations often rely on the flimsy say-so of media accounts; others show a willingness to accept the claims of anti-Trump critics at face value. Mueller and his team also used the footnotes as the place to include unsubstantiated gossip and speculation.

“Mueller has made it clear that during his scheduled testimony before Congress on Wednesday, he will not discuss his investigation beyond the “four corners” of his official report. But those four corners encompass not only the main text, but thousands of footnotes.”

At the Turning Point Youth Conference today....
The mention of Tlaib’s name prompted roaring boos from the audience of young conservatives. Trump seemed to be referencing footage of Tlaib being forcibly removed from an August 2016 Trump campaign event in Detroit while shouting, “You guys are crazy!” Video of the incident, which took place before Tlaib was elected and involved multiple protesters, resurfaced last weekend. Trump said Tlaib was “screaming like a total lunatic.”

“This is not a sane person, folks, and this is what we’re up against,” Trump said.

The tariff alarmists were shown to be wrong with chi com devaluation and absorbstion there has been no rise in prices to US shoppers. Then with the money collected they solidify the base. WIN WIN!

The USDA has redesigned last year's aid program based on feedback. The new package will have a single payment rate per county, calculated by the damages in that area, instead of a rate for every commodity across the nation.

Perdue said the minimal payment would be $15 an acre. "We're anticipating right now three tranches; probably 50 percent ... or minimum there of $15 an acre initially," he said, adding the second and third tranches would be dependant on market conditions.

Craig Ratajczyk, chief executive of the Illinois Soybean Association, said the $15-per-acre minimum would make agricultural lenders more comfortable.

PaulE 825am - You all should include in this thread the clear precedent most recently reset by Obama when his favored legislation was vetoed or ignored by Congress - "I have a phone and a pen ...". A president, as the executor of laws, has the final say on how the departments of the Executive Branch implement any given law passed by Congress, or bypassed through the issuance of bureaucratic regulations. Given, this is a mischievous way of doing the people's business, but that is what our Constitution allows when it comes to a pissing match between two co-equal branches of government, both claiming their elections represent the will of the people as they individually interpret that will.

What are you trying say Punch? I don't know what you are getting at here….are there now separate vetos for each branch of congress?

What about the Supreme Court……that's hardly fair……that they don't get one I mean!

Why is that?


I think we need Oprah Winfreys input on this Punch……"You get a veto!", ……"You get a veto!", ……"You get a veto!"

What say you Punch?!

I don't understand your request fish. Please reword.

George Rebane

PaulE 1028am - No Paul, that has been extensively covered over the last years, and continues to be referenced whenever the press reports on President Trump's swagger on his own executive powers and prerogatives. (Your research should not be difficult, just google 'I have a pen and a phone.')

Paul Emery

George

What I'm requesting is that you put a little more effort in providing documentation for the purposes of discussion I almost always include links in my posts for that reason. Googling a few words from a casual conversation is not providing much.

Daily Quotes (minus the Carnival Barkers on Capitol Hill)

Observations: “Congress’s budget process under both parties is broken. It makes no tradeoffs, lies to the public, and enforces no accountability.” —The Wall Street Journal

For the record: “Securing the border is the first principle that we all have when we talk about the immigration issue. While we need to address the issue of immigration and the challenge we have of undocumented people in our country, we certainly don’t want any more coming in.” —Nancy Pelosi, 2008

Friendly fire: “For any presidential candidate to raise their hand and say that they want to be for eliminating private health insurance, that is a losing message in 2020, and I would encourage them to rethink their positions.” —Democrat Rep. Anthony Brindisi

Friendly fire II: “If the Democrats don’t silence the Squad, the shrieking socialist snowflake sisters will send Trump back to the White House for another four years.” —Piers Morgan

**Friendly fire III: “Kamala Harris is not qualified to serve as commander-in-chief, and I can say this from a personal perspective as a soldier. She’s got no background or experience in foreign policy, and she lacks the temperament that is necessary for a commander-in-chief.” —Rep. and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard

Non Compos Mentis: “No one should fear receiving medical care because they are undocumented. We must ensure that all people in our country have access to reproductive health care.” —Rep. Ilhan Omar

Spread the wealth! “That’s what we do with our public dollars. We give it back to the people — the people that earned it.” —Rep. Rashida Tlaib
[What the hay, Thelma??? We give it to people who have NOT earned it....sez Bill]

Alpha Jackass: “Yes, President Trump is a racist. What we saw in North Carolina last week was almost an impromptu Nuremberg rally, inciting hatred and … violence against people based on the color of their skin, based on their religion, based on their difference from the majority of Americans.” —Beto O'Rourke

It’s Official: Democrats dislike our county, duh.

“I do so hope Democrats will run on the “our country is rotten” platform next year. Trump will win 40 states if they do.”

It's not that hard to use a link George if you are referring to a specific instance.

Do you mean like Trump saying he'll find another way to ask the census question the Supreme Court tossed or a work around to "build the wall" that he bragged was in progress. Of course that was a lie as is his promise that Mexico would pay for it or that he'd have a health care plan in a month and on and on and on......

Weissmann and the Oligarch. John Solomon, 2 weeks ago.

“Weissmann quietly reached out to the American lawyers for Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash with a tempting offer: Give us some dirt on Donald Trump in the Russia case, and Team Mueller might make his 2014 U.S. criminal charges go away.”

At the time, pressure was building inside the DOJ and the FBI to find smoking-gun evidence against Trump in the Russia case because the Steele dossier — upon which the early surveillance warrants were based — was turning out to be an uncorroborated mess. (“There’s no big there there,” lead FBI agent Pete Strzok texted a few days before Weissmann’s overture.)

“Likewise, key evidence that the DOJ used to indict Firtash on corruption charges in 2014 was falling apart. Two central witnesses were in the process of recanting testimony, and a document the FBI portrayed as bribery evidence inside Firtash’s company was exposed as a hypothetical slide from an American consultant’s PowerPoint presentation, according to court records I reviewed.

“In other words, the DOJ faced potential embarrassment in two high-profile cases when Weissmann made an unsolicited approach on June 4, 2017, that surprised even Firtash’s U.S. legal team.”

Too much truth is getting out -

“So when the Democrats began holding hearings and Heartland Institute scholars began showing up and an actual debate began to unfold, our friends on the left seemed to have lost a lot of their interest in those hearings,” McClintock said, adding that he sees that as a positive development.

“They gave us a critical opportunity to engage them on the actual science behind their apocalyptic predictions and they didn’t like where it leads,” McClintock said.
McClintock said despite the humor to be found in the “hysteria” on the left, it calls for serious pushback

This would be amusing except that it continues to drive public policy despite the failure of every one of their predictions and forecasts to coincide with the actual data we’ve accumulated since this nonsense began. We’ve allowed ourselves once again to be thrown into panic from forces that have been at work shaping our planet since it formed.

McClintock said climate change fear-mongering dates back to the 1970s when both Newsweek and the Washington Post reported on the dangers of an impending new Ice Age.

And that even today the left is ignoring the science that contradicts their apocalyptic predictions.

Here is a little good night snack, the elbows in the socialist clown car are getting sharp and the knives are out -

The New Yorker’s lengthy profile of Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) spends far more time discussing the influence of Willie Brown than her relationship with her husband, which is portrayed as impersonal and even politically motivated.

The profile, by Dana Goodyear, tells a positive story of Harris professionally—highlighting her well-received prosecutorial style as a senator and her rise in the polls after her use of it on the debate stage. But it's far more focused on the things Harris hates to talk about, like her relationship with Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco, and how it shaped her as a politician.

Goodyear, after noting how "stories that mention Brown have always infuriated Harris," goes on to mention Brown about two dozen times. She attempted, unsuccessfully, to both interview Brown and get a comment on him from Harris's campaign.

"When I asked her campaign about him, a spokesperson testily referred me to statements that she made sixteen years ago," Goodyear writes.
