Rosenstein Slams Comey, CNN, and MSNBC on Twitter…Why Comey’s Troubles are Just Beginning

August 30, 2019

FoxNews.com reports that

Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein took an apparent shot at former FBI Director James Comey on Twitter Thursday and derided commentators from CNN and MSNBC following the release of the Justice Department inspector general’s report.

While Rosenstein didn’t explicitly mention Comey, his initial tweet quoted a letter in which he cautioned against violating Justice Department policy because of short-term circumstances.

“It is important for the Department of Justice to follow established policies and procedures, especially when the stakes are high,” Rosenstein wrote.

In the preceding paragraph, he mentioned that Comey seemed to argue that circumstances justified both his disclosures about the Russia investigation and his 2016 letter about the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.

“It may seem tempting to depart from Department policies and traditions in an effort to deflect short-term criticism, but such deviations ultimately may cause a loss of public confidence in the even-handed administration of justice,” Rosenstein added. “We should be most on guard when we believe that our own uncomfortable present circumstances justify ignoring timeless principles respected by our predecessors.”

Rosenstein’s tweet came as Comey responded to a critical Inspector General report by highlighting its conclusion that he didn’t leak any classified information — despite the fact that the report also blasted his decision to violate FBI policies.

CNN Legal Analyst Renato Mariotti responded to Rosenstein by accusing him of a double standard, arguing that the deputy failed to call out Attorney General William Barr.

“You speak up about Comey failing to ‘follow established policies and procedures’ but stood silently beside Barr when he misled the public about Trump,” Mariotti said, apparently referring to Barr’s decision to summarize former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation.

Mariotti also criticized the president, accusing Trump of using “his power to try to quash investigations of him and his friends.”

Rosenstein responded to Mariotti by saying: “Notice how this pundit completely misses the point and thereby illustrates it.”

The former deputy attorney general also called out MSNBC analyst Matthew Miller, who criticized the inspector general’s claim that Comey set a dangerous precedent by ignoring FBI policy.

“Asinine. Comey did what he did because the president was actively trying to dismantle DOJ’s normal way of operating,” Miller tweeted.

“The AG [Jeff Sessions] and the DAG [Rosenstein] were both complicit, so Comey had no where [sic] else to take his concerns,” Miller added.

Rosenstein responded by linking to Miller’s own Washington Post op-ed which blasted Comey’s “abuse of power” in the Clinton email investigation.

“Another pundit illustrates my point: In 2016, he agreed policy violations ‘should trouble anyone who believes in the rule of law and fundamental principles of fairness’ Rosenstein tweeted. “Many employees dislike supervisors, but most keep faith with government institutions.”

However, as average Americans found out during the Obama Administration, the rules did not apply to the Obamas or anyone who worked for them, as James Comey did.

Let’s face it, y’all…Former FBI Director James Comey is a self-righteous Prima Donna, not unlike the Democrats in the House of Representatives.

People like Comey believe themselves to be smarter than everyone else.  So therefore, the rules do not apply to them.

I am certain that when he found out that President Trump was going to keep him on as FBI Director, he, along with his “fellow travelers” conspired as to use his position to aid in the ongoing Deep State Operation to remove President Trump from office.

So, why is the Department of Justice not seeking to file charges against Comey?

I am guessing it is because he will be charged along with other members of the “Silent Coup” Operations Team for FISA Abuse, which is a part of the DOJ Probe which was ordered by Attorney General Barr and is currently being carried out by U.S. Attorney John Durham.

In fact, FoxNews.com reported on August 8th that

The FBI formally documented the anti-Trump bias of British ex-spy Christopher Steele months shortly after the November 2016 presidential election — yet despite the red flags, continued to use his unverified dossier in multiple Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application renewals, records obtained by Fox News show.

The partially redacted documents, first obtained by Judicial Watch, also revealed that top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr maintained contact with Steele for at least six months after Steele was fired by the FBI for unauthorized media contacts in November 2016.

The records further confirm that Ohr knew of Steele’s anti-Trump bias before the 2016 election.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday evening. “I know personally there’s a lot more out there.”

The summaries of FBI interviews with Ohr, known as 302s, showed that Ohr knew by September 2016 — a month before the initial FISA application to surveil the Trump campaign — that Steele was “desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being the U.S. President.”

A source close to the matter told Fox News “this had the effect of putting a senior DOJ official on notice that a witness/source had an extreme bias.”

Nevertheless, the FISA warrant application went through in October 2016 with multiple renewals.

Of course, to this day Comey denies knowing who funded the Steele Dossier.

If you believe that the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not know what his top agents were involved in nor have any knowledge of the Secretary of State’s activities and those of her confidantes’, I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis, Tennessee to sell you.

President Ronald Reagan used to say that the nine words that you never want to hear were

I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.

The Deep State Operatives within the FBI and the DOJ conspired to overturn the results of the 2016 Presidential Election via means of a seditious plot which like a Machiavellian spider’s web, reached into the Halls of Power in Washington, D.C.

Being political appointees holding political opinions, while carrying political obligations to a certain political party, never bodes well in a position of legal authority.

Add into that mix an extra-marital affair between these bureaucrats and, to paraphrase, “the affairs of mice and men (and agents) will indeed go awry”.

I’ve got a feeling that very soon Former FBI Director James Comey and his co-consirators will find the spotlight of justice shining directly upon them.

And, like cockroaches in a kitchen in a Raid commercial, when the lights comes on, there will be a reckoning.

MSNBC Guest Slams Trump Supporters: ” You Do Not Negotiate With These People — You Destroy Them”

August 14, 2019

42428

FoxNews.com reports that

Above the Law executive editor Elie Mystal told MSNBC viewers Sunday that they should try to “destroy” President Trump’s supporters at the ballot box.

“You don’t communicate it to them — you beat them. Beat them. They are not a majority of this country. The majority of white people in this country are not a majority of the country,” Mystal said while appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy.” “And all the people who are not fooled by this need to come together, go to the polls, go to the protests, do whatever you have to do. You do not negotiate with these people — you destroy them.”

Host Joy Reid apparently realized her guest’s comment could be taken as inflammatory and quickly intervened. “The black man said ‘beat them,’ meaning in an election,” she said as Mystal added “figuratively.”

Mystal’s comments came amid a renewed discussion about whether heated political rhetoric could contribute to acts of violence. Many Democrats and members of the media have claimed that Trump’s words influenced the suspected gunman in this month’s mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.

Mystal also argued that Trump supporters like real estate mogul Stephen Ross were just as “complicit” in Trump’s hardline policy toward immigrants as “the man himself.”

“The children who are orphaned on the streets of Mississippi see no moral distinction because Stephen Ross got a tax cut to look the other way while their parents were being abducted,” said Mystal, referring to last week’s immigration raids at seven food processing plants in Mississippi.

Mystal previously called for “pitchforks and torches” outside of Ross’ home on Long Island where he was scheduled to hold a pricey fundraiser for Trump this weekend.

“I’ve been to the Hamptons, it’s very nice. There’s no reason it has to be,” he said. “There’s no reason he should be able to have a nice little party. There’s no reason why people shouldn’t be able to be outside of his house and making their voices peacefully understood.”

Who is Elie Mystal?

According to his bio on abovethelaw.com, a Liberal Website about law and the legal profession…

Prior to joining ATL, Elie wrote about politics and popular culture at City Hall News and the New York Press. Elie received a degree in Government from Harvard University and a J.D. from Harvard Law School. He was formerly a litigator at Debevoise & Plimpton but quit the legal profession to pursue a career as an online provocateur.

I guess “provocateur” sounds better than political activist, Media Gadfly, and TDS sufferer.

About his reference to the ICE Raids which occurred recently in Mississippi: The ICE Agents are not responsible for the children who were left in the care of others after the raids.

Their parents, who broke into our Sovereign Nation and stayed here ILLEGALLY, are.

Perhaps Mr. Mystal left the legal profession because he did not understand the meaning of the word “ILLEGAL”.

But, I digress…

Isn’t it funny how those who claim to be the most tolerant among us, are actually the most intolerant of all of us?

So, anyway, here we are…with a bunch of paid and unpaid “useful idiots”, as represented by this “provocateur”, i.e., race-baiting Liberal Political Activist, telling all of us normal Americans, living out here in the Heartland, how stupid and intolerant we are, for actually holding on to Traditional American Values and wanting to “Make America Great Again” through the election of Donald J. Trump to the office of the President of the United States of America.

I have heard this kind of garbage before.

Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some Cheetos-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful spoiled brat, I would have.

That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, such as the members of Antifa, who seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.

Just as we have bore witness to the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by the Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

These “spoiled brats”, as exemplified by this guest on the world’s least-watched Cable News Network, MSNBC, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we saw play out, as paid and unpaid protestors attempted to stop the Nomination and Installation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as our latest Associate Justice on the Supreme Court Trump’s Campaign Rallies, in an attempt to somehow halt the fulfilling of President Trump’s Campaign Promises in order to stop comeback of America which he has been responsible for and to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party.

If you have ever attempted to debate a Liberal on a Facebook Political Page or a Political Website, they always attempt to present their opinions as facts, with nothing by Political Rhetoric to back them up.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics” by the Democratic Leadership, while promising to somehow restore Barack Hussein Obama’s “share the wealth” failed Domestic Policy, has inspired these self-absorbed Modern American Liberals to act like the Bolsheviks of the Russian Revolution, in an attempt to create a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression” for the sole purpose, as Senator Lindsey Graham pointed out in the Kavanaugh Hearings, to gain back their political power.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny and the danger of mob rule.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives the protestors of the Presidency of Donald  J. Trump that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, by attempting to destroy a good man through lies and innuendos or by strong-arming and harassing those who refuse to believe the way they do, for the expressed purpose of denying someone their First Amendment Rights.

Our Constitution, in fact, allowed then-Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton to call all of us who believe in Traditional American Values and the preservation of American as the Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth “Deplorables”.

However, that same Constitution, which Americans have fought and died for to preserve, also gives me the right to label Elie Mystal’s self-entitlement-driven condescending Political Ideology for what it actually is:

“HYPOCRITICAL INTOLERANCE”.

Those Who Would Divide Us: Kaepernick Tells Nike to Pull “Betsy Ross Shoes”, MSNBC Won’t Carry Trump’s 4th of July National Celebration

July 3, 2019

1533067703896 (3)

I have been with Donald for 18 years, and I have been aware of his love for this country since we first met. He never had a hidden agenda when it comes to his patriotism because, like me, he loves this country so much. – Melania Trump

APNews.com reports that

Nike’s sales have only grown since it seized attention with its ad campaign featuring former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. So, the shoemaker deferred to its star endorser when he raised concerns over a sneaker featuring an early American flag.

Nike pulled the Air Max 1 USA shoe, which included a Revolutionary-era U.S. flag with 13 white stars in a circle on the heel, after Kaepernick told the company he and others found the flag offensive because of its connection to an era of slavery, according to the Wall Street Journal. The shoe had been sent to retailers to go on sale this week for the July Fourth holiday, according to the Journal.

The decision caused an instant backlash among conservatives who accused Nike of denigrating U.S. history, with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey tweeting that he is asking the state’s Commerce Authority to withdraw financial incentives promised to Nike to build a plant in the state.

Others expressed surprise that the symbol known as the “Betsy Ross” flag, so named after the beloved Philadelphia woman credited with designing it, could be considered offensive. Although some extremist groups appear to have appropriated the flag, it is not widely viewed as a symbol of hate, and is used in museums that focus on 18th century U.S. history.

The Anti-Defamation League does not include it in its database of hate symbols. Mark Pitcavage, a senior research fellow for the ADL’s Center on Extremism, said extremist groups have occasionally used it, but the flag is most commonly used by people for patriotic purposes.

“We view it as essentially an innocuous historical flag,” Pitcavage said. “It’s not a thing in the white supremacist movement.”

Nike said in statement that “it pulled the shoe based on concerns that it could unintentionally offend and detract from the nation’s patriotic holiday.” The company pushed back against criticism that the decision was being “anti-American.”

“Nike is a company proud of its American heritage and our continuing engagement supporting thousands of American athletes including the U.S. Olympic team and U.S. Soccer teams,” Nike said.

In a related story, The Hill.com reports that

MSNBC will not air the entirety of President Trump’s planned “Salute to America” on July Fourth, instead opting to carry on with regularly scheduled news programming that may include clips of the event.

A spokesperson for the network told Politico it potentially will air parts of the event during Thursday’s newscasts, which will continue normally with “The Beat with Ari Melber” airing live at 6 p.m. ET and “Hardball with Chris Matthews” at 7 p.m.

The network did not immediately return The Hill’s request for more information on its Thursday schedule.

Fox News, meanwhile, will air the entirety of Trump’s special July Fourth celebration during a live two-hour “Special Report” with Mike Emanuel as guest  host that is set to broadcast at 6 p.m.

I know that you are wondering what these two reports have in common, gentle readers.

Allow me to explain…

This nation is still experiencing a Political Division of a magnitude never before seen.

A Political Division which came to fruition during the 8 long arduous years of the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

Colin Kaepernick started his “crusade” back then.

The NFLPA was not protesting during those years, however. Just Colin Kaepernick and he did it to impress his Muslim girlfriend, a poor choice which led to his present unemployment, along with the cold hard fact that he is actually not that good of a quarterback.

MSNBC, like CNN and the rest of the Main Stream Media, long ago abandoned any pretense of objectivity in order to become the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

Now that the Democratic Party has become nothing but a Far Left, Marxism-embracing, American-hating, special interest groups butt-kissing bunch of self-absorbed ungrateful American-haters, they have lost all credibility with average Americans.

So, why don’t clowns like Maddow, Tapper, and Acosta, their co-workers at the Propaganda Machines known as CNN and MSNBC and their masters, the Democratic Party, understand that attacking President Trump and Traditional American Values, such as will be on display during the 4th of July Celebration in Washington, DC, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is why they continue to lose viewers and voters?

Simple. They are blinded by their egotistical rage.

In American Politics, as far as anybody can remember, that is still alive and kicking, you have had those of a political ideology who were Pro-American and Gung Ho about all the things that this country stands for. And, on the other side, you had those of a political ideology who criticized everything that America stood for, and still stands for, to this day.

From those who believed that Communism would be great for America back in the 1950s, to those in the 1960’s, who wanted to “tune in, turn on, and drop out”, and spit on our returning Servicemen, to those of the 1970s who were naive pacifists like their President, Jimmy Carter, to those in the 1980s, who were part of the “Me Generation”, to those whom we call “Progressives” (a misnomer) or “Modern Liberals” in our present generation, including Nancy Pelosi, Chuck “U” Schumer, Jerry Nadler, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama and all of his minions, there has always been a minority segment of American Society, who despise everything that this land, which was given us by the Almighty and was fought for and died for by those before us, stands for, while they reap all the benefits of America the Beautiful.

Through the last several decades, the Democratic Party, once the party of the “Middle Class Working American” has devolved into a Far Left Political Party of special interest groups and has become the champion and practitioner of the “Tyranny of the Minority”.

What we have heah is failure to communicate. – Strother Martin, “Cool Hand Luke”.

While spending time on Facebook Political Pages, which I really should cut down on, as it tends to increase my blood pressure to Mt. Vesuvius Levels, I continuously encounter individuals who echo the sentiments of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency and who believe that anybody who works hard for a living, believes in God and Country, and supports President Trump, is a Jingoistic imbecile.

The same intolerant idiots who have decided that they do not need to hire “straight white males”.

By the way, according to the dictionary, Jingoism is an extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.

In other words, being guilty of “patriotism”, i.e., believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.

And, that is fuel that drives idiots like Colin Kaepernick and the bosses at MSNBC to act like ungrateful imbeciles.

This ol’ cracka has any idea for y’all:

If you don’t like it here…LEAVE!

…and take the House Democrats with you.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

CNN, MSNBC Ratings in Freefall as Americans Tune Out the Democrats and Their Propaganda Arm

June 5, 2019

the_rachel_maddow_show_-_09_00_27_pm

John Nolte reports for Breitbart.com that

The news just keeps getting worse and worse for the far-left CNN, which suffered a 16 percent primetime ratings collapse last month.

The embattled CNN, which always lands in far-last place and axed more than 100 jobs already this year, had about as bad of a ratings month as is possible in May.

Its primetime hours were only able to average a measly 761,000 viewers, while the fake news outlet’s total day viewers dove nine percent (compared to this same month last year) to just 559,000 viewers.

For comparison purposes, Fox News earned three times as many primetime viewers (2.34 million) and more than twice as many total day viewers (1.34 million). What’s more, when compared to this same month last year, Fox lost none of its primetime viewers and only four percent of its total day viewers.

The most astounding thing, though, is that CNN’s ratings are already so low, it seems impossible they could dive any lower — and yet, they always do.

Do you have any idea just how low 761,000 primetime viewers is…?

How does a nationally known brand like CNN, a brand that is decades old, only manage to attract 761,000 viewers throughout a gonzo news month in a country of over 300 million?

But this is just how far over the cliff CNN has gone… CNN has lost almost all of its viewers, all of its moral authority, and every bit of trust it once had. Over the past six years, as soon as Jeff Zucker took over, CNN got every major national story exactly wrong, including…

Hispanic George Zimmerman: The White Racist Killer
Hands Up, Don’t Shoot
Trump Can’t Win
Brett Kavanaugh: Serial Rapist
The KKKids from KKKovington High School
Trump Colluded with Russia

And in every one of those cases, CNN got it deliberately wrong because CNN is nothing less than a hysterical propaganda outlet, a fire hose of hate, violence, and lies…

Things are so bad at CNN that even though it is only competing with two other cable news networks, the fake news outlet’s top-rated program, Cuomo Prime Time, crash-landed in 25th place averaging only 938,000 viewers.

That’s right, the top 24 slots are all filled with shows from Fox News and MSNBC — and Fox holds seven of the top ten.

The insufferable Jake Tapper, the guy Zucker put at 4 p.m. hoping he’d act as a primetime anchor, as a lead-in for the rest of the night, landed in a pathetic 36th place with only 706,000 average viewers, which is 55,000 fewer viewers than CNN’s primetime average.

Among CNN shows, Tapper used to regularly place in the top three as far as total viewers. Now he’s in sixth place among his fake news colleagues.

CNN’s flagship morning show, New Day, is a laughingstock with just 485,000 average viewers.

How big of a fail is that?

Well, New Day is losing by about 80,000 viewers to Fox & Friends First, which airs at — get this — 4 a.m.

Nolte also reports that

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has lost 500,000 viewers and suffered her worst ratings month since Trump became president, reports Fox News.

During the first quarter of 2019, prior to the release of the Mueller Report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and proved Trump did not obstruct justice),

Maddow averaged 3.1 million nightly viewers. Last month, after the release of the Mueller Report (which debunked the media’s Russia Collusion Hoax and proved Trump did not obstruct justice), she averaged only 2.6 million viewers.

That’s a loss of a half-million viewers.

I was going to ask you why this is happening, gentle readers, but you already know why.

CNN and MSN, like the rest of the Main Stream Media long ago abandoned any pretense of objectivity in order to become the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

Now that the Democratic Party has become nothing but a Far Left, Marxism-embracing, American-hating, special interest groups butt-kissing bunch of self-absorbed ungrateful American-haters, they have lost all credibility with average Americans.

So, why don’t clowns like Maddow, Tapper, and Acosta, their co-workers at the Propaganda Machines known as CNN and MSNBC and their masters, the Democratic Party, understand that attacking President Trump and Traditional American Values, such as Patriotism 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is why they continue to lose viewers and voters?

Simple. They are blinded by their egotistical rage.

In American Politics, as far as anybody can remember, that is still alive and kicking, you have had those of a political ideology who were Pro-American and Gung Ho about all the things that this country stands for. And, on the other side, you had those of a political ideology who criticized everything that America stood for, and still stands for, to this day.

The same intolerant idiots who have decided that they do not need to hire “straight white males”.

In other words, being guilty of “patriotism”, i.e., believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.

During the 8 long years of the Obama Presidency,  children and young adults attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses were taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America was “just another country” and that being a patriot was to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.

Where the exceptionalism of America lies…is not in the Halls of Power…nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.

And, since we “straight white males” are a very big voting bloc, “The Smartest People in the Room”, those in charge of CNN and MSNBC, and the brain-trust of the Democratic Party, including their Radical Hispanic Chairman, Tom Perez, are sentencing themselves to failure for the next several national elections….no matter how much fake news and propaganda idiots like Rachel Maddow and Jim Acosta and the rest of the Main Stream Media attempt to disseminate.

Hey! I just thought of something.

Being a Christian American Conservative and a Son of the South, not to mention a “straight white male”, I don’t stand a snowball’s chance in July of getting hired by CNN, MSNBC, and the DNC, anyway.

Which is a good thing.

To paraphrase Lynyrd Skynyrd,

Southern man don’t need them around anyhow.

Judging by the dwindling viewership of CNN and MSNBC and the horrible popularity numbers of the Democratically-led Congress, the rest of America’s Heartland doesn’t, either.

MAGA!

“Morning Joe’s” Donny Deutsch Claims Trump Will Start a Civil War if Not Reelected…TDS is Real!

March 1, 2019

Screen-Shot-2018-06-22-at-8.34.50-AM (2)

Just when you think that the Liberal Pundits on the Fake News Channels can not get more hyperbolic…

FoxNews.com reports that

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” regular Donny Deutsch declared Thursday that President Trump is capable of starting a civil war before warning, “I’m not speaking hyperbole.”

The morning show panel was discussing comments made by Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen, who on Wednesday said he’s worried that if the president doesn’t win re-election, there will not be a “peaceful transition of power.”

Deutsch seemed to agree with Cohen, but took the prediction to an extreme next level.

“When he thought he was going to lose, he was teeing it up for a few days. It’s easy to forget that now,” Deutsch said. “If impeachment starts to happen, even if he loses an election, whatever inner move you think this guy is capable of doing to create a civil war, he will [do]… I’m not speaking hyperbole.”

Deutsch said Cohen knows Trump “better than anybody” and urged viewers to take his comments seriously.

“I think we really have to pay attention to that,” Deutsch said.

MSNBC’s Willie Geist then asked, “Does anyone doubt that Donald Trump would do that, even if he loses a free and fair election… he’ll start talking about voter fraud?”

Deutsch responded that he isn’t talking about voter fraud, but something far more serious before reminding viewers that Cohen said Trump “won’t leave” the White House peacefully.

NewsBusters contributing writer Alex Christy blasted the far-left morning show for the segment that “outrageously” claimed Trump could start a civil war to remain in power.

“The cast of MSNBC’s Morning Joe like to view themselves as the defenders of truth and justice in an age when such ideals are supposedly under attack by President Trump. Any presidential hyperbole is condemned as a lie, while their own hyperbole is speaking truth to power,” Christy wrote. “Their irresponsibility and hypocrisy truly knows no bounds.”

This is quite a delicious bit of self-absorbed irony, isn’t it, gentle readers?

Donny Deutsch provides us with a textbook example of the blinding lack of self-awareness among the Far Left Liberal Elite of the Democratic Party.

They actually believe that everybody in America, including “Flyover  Country”, as they call us, have exactly the same Far Left anti-traditional American Faith and Values political ideology that they do.

They also believe that campaigning on killing babies after they are born, legalizing pot from coast to coast, allowing transgendered “athletes” to compete against their opposite God-given gender, and attempting to impeach President Trump will appeal to those of us working class Americans who stand outside arenas for hours to get in and see the President when he brings his MAGA Rally to our municipality.

What part of the fact that America has greatly improved economically under the presidency of Donald J. Trump, don’t they understand?

Do they actually believe that Americans want Open Borders?

Really?

Do they actually believe that a nation whose population in which 75% profess Jesus Christ as their Savior are cheering them standing up for abortion after birth?

All of them must be smoking all that dope which they want to legalize.

Sheesh.

Average Americans did not elect Trump as President because he is perfect.

We elected him because he spoke TO us, not DOWN TO us, as Barack Hussein Obama and his chosen successor, Hillary Clinton, did.

And now, Little Donny, you’re worried about a “Civil War” breaking out if Trump is not reelected?

Judging from the field of candidates that your political party is offering up to battle to be their potential Presidential Candidate, the only way you guys are going to win in 2020, is if all of us “Deplorables” between the coasts keel over from laughing ourselves to death.

Oh, and if you “New Bolsheviks” ever get the idea to attempt a coup, since your first attempt is failing so miserably, just remember:

Average Americans still have our Bibles and guns.

Frustrated Joe Scarborough Asks About Trump Supporters, “Who The Hell Are These People”? Let Me Tell You, Joe…

July 21, 2018

thoughts-and-prayers-600-la (2)

CNSNews.com reports that

A recent poll shows grassroots Republicans approve of President Donald Trump’s performance in Helsinki, despite the best efforts of liberal Democrats and media pundits to trash the president for absolutely everything he did/does and said/says.

The Axios/SurveyMonkey poll asked,”Do you approve or disapprove of the way Trump handled his press conference with Putin?” Seventy-nine percent of Republicans approved.

“Who the hell are these people?” an incredulous Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” asked on Friday’s show. He and his ilk are stunned that President Trump would invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the United States, when Trump’s recent meeting in Helsinki was “called treasonous” by the elites.

“Who are these people and what have they done to my party?” asked Scarborough, who has left the Republican Party and is about to marry his very liberal “Morning Joe” co-host.

“It was just really shocking that the president of the United States — after being called treasonous by quite a few people in the foreign policy/defense community– still trying to clean up…the mess that he created when he went to Helsinki and kowtowed to an ex-KGB agent, that he rushes to announce that now Vladimir Putin is coming to Washington, before cleaning up the last mess on aisle 7.”

Scarborough gave his own spin to the poll showing that 80 percent of Americans “think it’s okay to cower before an ex-KGB agent, to insult allies. You do wonder, is it just a Donald Trump problem now? This is a problem with the party cast wide.”

Scarborough warned that support for Trump will ultimately “destroy” the Republican Party.

Joining the chorus, contributor John Heilemann said: “I think the corruption and bankruptcy of the Republican Party has been a long time in the making, but there is no Republican Party any more in any sense that you would have defined the Republican Party ten years ago, and the way that you would have, what the Republican Party stood for, at least in the post-World War II era.

“It has become the party of Donald Trump,” Heilemann said. “And so in a thorough way, we’ve seen this, not just in the polling — the startling polling in relation to how Republicans now have seen the performance of Donald Trump in Helsinki, presumably how they will see his invitation now of Vladimir Putin to come to Washington to give him the ultimate kind of — ah, rather than to chastise him, rather than to criticize him for Russia’s role in meddling in an American election, he’s giving him the ultimate kind of cherry-on-top of a sundae. This is a thing that a Russian president would want most of all to get.””

“But, John,” Scarborough said, “it goes to Republicans, though. Rank-and-file Republicans — 75 percent, 80 percent saying they liked what he did in Helsinki when even, again, his closest allies in the media said he was either treasonous or a complete dupe.

“Who are these people that I grew up with that were the most — the toughest on Russia, that fought the cold war alongside with NATO? When the Soviets’ goal during the Cold War is the same goal that Vladimir Putin has now, which is to disrupt Western democracies and break up NATO? The goal is identical to what Republicans always supported. And you talk about trade. 73 percent of Republicans now are telling pollsters that they think tariffs are good for America?

“This — again, who are these people? It’s like — like political body snatchers,” Scarborough lamented.

Heilemann again: “Joe, these are the people who now call themselves — now are the Republican Party. The people who you think of as having constituted the Republican Party in your life growing up in the party — they are now either no longer in the party, or they are, in a kind of weak and craven way, sitting on the sidelines and wringing their hands over what Donald Trump has done to the party, but not really doing much about it. Some of them are speaking out, some of them are not…

“But the rank and file of the party now, the — the grass-roots of the Republican party are people who believe what Donald Trump believes, and not what you believe, and not what Republicans believed in the post-world war II era; they don’t believe in free trade, they don’t believe in immigration, they don’t believe in standing up to Russian, previously Soviet, expansionism, they don’t believe in NATO — they don’t believe those things. That’s not what the Republican Party is anymore. So to answer your question, I don’t know what happens.”

Scarborough said for the past two decades, he could go to any Lincoln-Reagan dinner across America, “and you could say the same thing wherever you went, and you’d get the applause. Now — according to these polls it’s not a split. Now 80 percent of Americans are fine with Donald Trump’s kowtowing to an ex-KGB agent who wants to destroy our allies, and wants to disrupt our elections. And they — now, you look at this poll, they support tariffs.

“What the hell — what the hell — who the hell are these people?! What is wrong with these Republicans?! Where has the party, not of my youth, but of my early 50s gone?!” Scarborough asked.

“It’s gone, Joe,” guest Susan del Percio said.

And the funeral went on from there.

I guess that Joe Scarborough thought that the entire nation would be so gullible as to buy the spin that the Main Stream Media pumped out 24/7 for several days in a row about President Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin and the Press Conference after it.

Evidently, Joe and the rest of the Democratic Party lackeys whom we refer to as the Main Stream Media learned nothing from the Presidential Campaign and Election of 2016.

If you will recall, the MSM spent hours upon hours, days upon days attempting to drag Hillary Clinton’s Far Left cantankerous old as…err…self across the finish line.

In fact, they were so certain that Hillary’s victory the evening of November 8, 2016 was a fait accompli, that the look on the faces of the anchors and pundits on Joe’s own network, MSNBC, and the other Liberal News Channels was one of utter shock and disbelief when the returns started pouring in and states that were supposedly in Hillary’s back pocket went to Trump.

My bride and I stayed up and laughed out loud.

But, I digress…

All of these Cable News “Political Pundits”, including Joe Scarborough, still have no clue as to why they lost.

Nor do they understand whom it was that elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America and continue to stand by him today with no hesitation.

Hey, Joe…let me explain a little concept I like to call “reality”…

Between the states that butt up against the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, there is a massive area of land where average Americans live in major cities, suburbs, and small towns, known as the “Heartland of America”.

We average Americans live our lives quite differently than you guys in the areas of the Northeast known as the Beltway and the Big Apple and the area on the other side of the nation known as the Left Coast.

We were brought up to believe in a system of Traditional American Faith and Values and in morality and ethics.

We were taught to stand up and place our hands over our hearts during our National Anthem.

We were taught to respect others by using phrases which are probably foreign to you such as “yes, sir” and “no, ma’am” and “please” and “thank you”.

We were also raised to be proud of America and what she stands for and to honor those who protect us at home and abroad while sacrificing their lives in her defense.

We are a Constitutional Republic created by Founders who pledged “their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” in order to fight a war which freed us from tyranny and which created a country that would not be governed by mob rule.

Thank God.

So, Joe…”who the Hell” are we?

We are the people whom you and your co-members of the Democratic Party forgot about in your zeal to bow to special interest groups and to take this nation on a path which it was never meant to go on….one of “Democratic Socialism”, i.e. “Marxism”.

We are average Americans and WE, not the Russians, elected Donald J Trump the President of the United States of America.

And, we will continue to stand by him as long as he continues to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

He’s doing fine so far.

…And, you guys can’t stand it.

MSNBC’s Hayes Tweets That Roseanne’s “Xenophobia” Represents a “Significant Chunk” of Trump’s Base

May 31, 2018

chris-hayes-late-night

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she said. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic—you name it.” – Hillary Clinton, Democratic Candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America

 

xenophobia – xen·o·pho·bi·a[zen- uh- foh-bee- uh, zee-n uh-] NOUN
1. fear or hatred of foreigners, people from different cultures, or strangers: Xenophobia and nationalism can be seen as a reaction to the rise of globalization.
2. fear or dislike of the customs, dress, etc., of people who are culturally different from oneself: Learning a foreign language can help to overcome xenophobia.

FoxNews.com reports that

MSNBC host Chris Hayes went after Trump supporters Tuesday when he took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on ABC firing Roseanne Barr for making a racist comment, saying her xenophobic worldviews represent a “significant chunk” of the president’s base.

On Tuesday, ABC pulled the plug on the wildly popular reboot of “Roseanne” after its namesake posted a racist and offensive tweet about former President Obama’s aide and close friend Valerie Jarrett. Barr wrote that Jarrett, who is African-American and was born to an American couple living in Iran, is like the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”

Hayes, who hosts MSNBC’s 8 p.m. show “All In,” felt that Barr was behaving the way elite liberals envision Trump supporters behaving. 

“Roseanne’s problem turned out to be that she far too authentically represented the actual worldview of a significant chunk of the Trump base,” Hayes wrote.

A follower responded that Hayes is “better than this sort of cheap snark,” before MSNBC contributor Josh Barro asked, “Is it unfair to suggest that racist, looney tunes conspiracy theories were a key way that Trump bonded with enough Republican voters to win a presidential primary?”

Hayes responded that Barr is “closer to a repeat Trump rally-goer than a median Trump voter.” The MSNBC star was mocked by Trump supporters for the comment. One wrote, “This type of broad statement can’t end well for Democrats. Similar to ‘deplorables,’ but by all means keep it up,” while another added, “You’re one simple-minded man.”

So, Chris Hayes just called the majority of us average Americans who voted for Donald J. Trump on November 8, 2016 “racists.”

Isn’t it funny how those who claim to be the most tolerant among us, are actually the most intolerant of all of us?

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 16, 2016, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

That is why I call the actions of these insufferable idiots, like the ones on full display in their desperation to somehow unseat Donald J. Trump from the Presidency of the United States of America, “The Tyranny of the Minority”.

So, anyway, here we are…with a bunch of paid and unpaid “useful idiots”, as represented by the Liberal Talking Heads at MSNBC, such as Chris Hayes, telling all of us normal Americans, living out here in the Heartland, how stupid and intolerant we are, for actually holding on to Traditional American Values and wanting to “Make America Great Again” after electing Donald J. Trump to the office of the President of the United States of America.

I have heard this kind of garbage before.

Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some Cheetos-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful spoiled brat, I would have.

That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, such as Miley Cyrus, that seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.

Just as we bore witness during the Obama Presidency, through the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by the Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, including self-proclaimed Liberal Political Pundits, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

These “spoiled brats”, like their Failed Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton herself, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as paid and unpaid protestors contain to have public temper tantrums over the issues of the day, in an attempt to stifle Free Speech and to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party, in a vain attempt to block Donald J. Trump’s fulfillment of his Campaign Promises.

If you have ever attempted to debate a Liberal on a Facebook Political Page or a Political Website, they always attempt to present their opinions as facts, with nothing but Political Rhetoric to back them up.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics”, including “Racial Rhetoric”, promising a continuance of Barack Hussein Obama’s own “share the wealth” failed Domestic Policy, has inspired these self-absorbed Modern American Liberals leading to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including President Trump…and yes, Roseanne Barr, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives the protestors of President Donald  J. Trump that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, by spreading lies and innuendoes as legitimate news, or by insulting average Americans for the expressed purpose of delegitimizing their votes in the last Presidential Election.

It also allows ungrateful NFL Players, making millions of dollars to disrespect our Sovereign Nation and those who died for our flag to refuse to stand during our National Anthem., but not during their employer’s time.

Our Constitution, in fact, even allowed Former Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton to call all of us who believe in Traditional American Values and the preservation of American as the Greatest Country on God’s Green Earth “Deplorables”.

However, that same Constitution, which Americans have fought and died for to preserve, also gives me the right to label Liberals’ such as Chris Hayes and Hillary Clinton’s Self-entitlement-driven, condescending, hypocritical Political Ideology for what it actually is:

“INTOLERANCE”.

Memorial Day 2018: “Freedom Is Not Free”

May 28, 2018

memorial-day-cemetery

Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it. – Pete Hegseth

D-Day, also called the Battle of Normandy, was fought on June 6, 1944, between the Allied nations and German forces occupying Western Europe. To this day, 74 years later, it still remains the largest seaborne invasion in history. Almost three million troops crossed the English Channel from England to Normandy to be used as human cannon fodder in an invasion of occupied France.

Among the young men who stepped off those boats, in a hail of gunfire, was a fellow named Edward, whom everyone called Ned, from the small town of Helena, Arkansas. Already in his young life, Ned had been forced to drop out of school in the sixth grade, in order to work at the local movie theatre to help support his mother, brother, and sister, faced with the ravages of the Great Depression.

He was a gentle man who loved to laugh and sing, having recorded several 78 rpm records in the do-it-yourself booths of the day. And now, he found himself, a Master Sergeant in an Army Engineering Unit, stepping off a boat into the unknown, watching his comrades being mercilessly gunned down around him.

Ned, along with the rest of his unit who survived the initial assault, would go on to assist in the cleaning out of the Concentration Camps, bearing witness to man’s inhumanity to man.

The horrors he saw had a profound effect on Ned. One which he would keep to himself for the remainder of his life. While his children knew that he served with an Engineering Unit in World War II, they did not know the full extent of his service, until they found his medal, honoring his participation in the Invasion of Normandy, going through his belongings, after he passed away on December 29, 1997.

Today is a day of solemn remembrance, during which we honor our fallen heroes.

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women’s groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, “Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping” by Nella L. Sweet carried the dedication “To The Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead” (Source: Duke University’s Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920). While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it’s difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860’s tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen Logan giving his official proclamation in 1868. It is not important who was the very first, what is important is that Memorial Day was established. Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to honor those who gave their all.

Memorial Day was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states. The South refused to acknowledge the day, honoring their dead on separate days until after World War I (when the holiday changed from honoring just those who died fighting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died fighting in any war). It is now celebrated in almost every State on the last Monday in May (passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 – 363) to ensure a three day weekend for Federal holidays), though several southern states have an additional separate day for honoring the Confederate war dead: January 19 in Texas, April 26 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi; May 10 in South Carolina; and June 3 (Jefferson Davis’ birthday) in Louisiana and Tennessee.

This Day of Remembrance, honoring the sacrifices of our Brightest and Best is very personal to me.

On a night in 1966, a 7 year old was laying on his family’s den couch in Memphis, TN, watching his favorite TV Series “Batman” with a fever of 105, brought about by a severe bronchial infection. Tending to that sick child were 3 veterans of World War II: his Daddy, a Master Sergeant with the Army Engineers, his Uncle “R” (Robert), US Air Force, and his Uncle Perriman, a full-blooded Indian from Albuquerque, who was an Army Corpsman.

Those three veterans, now all gone, took turns putting cold washcloths under the child’s arms and on his forehead, until his fever finally broke, sometime during the night.

That child was me.

Growing up during the Vietnam War, I was privileged to have a brother-in-law who served in the Navy. I also knew a fella who served in the Army, a friend of my older sister’s, who stayed on our couch during high school often, after fighting with his family. And, I had a cousin who served then, as well.

Recently, in America, our Brightest and Best are being callously mistreated by an incompetent authoritarian centralized bureaucracy. One whose cavalier attitude toward them as being simply pawns, to be used to give their lives for a failed Foreign Policy and the morale-weakening Social Experimentation of Barack Hussein Obama and his Progressive Minions, led to our veterans dying, while they waited for the Medical Treatment, which they had been promised and so richly deserved.

For all of his photo ops and posing for the cameras, United States President Barack Hussein Obama viewed our armed forces as beneath him… assets to use when he needed to, in order to backup his failed foreign policy, and an ancillary service to trim, when it was time to cut the budget.

Obama’s actions were in stark contrast to our previous president, George W Bush, who, every year at Thanksgiving, would go and serve Turkey to troops stationed around the world, during secret trips that Main Stream Media would not even know about until the president landed at the base.

And, when Bush wasn’t doing that, he was secretly visiting our wounded warriors at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, DC, again, out of the limelight of the cameras.

Even though Bush is no longer president, he is still showing his respect for our wounded warriors. He has held picnics in their honor, visiting with them and dancing with our brave young ladies who were wounded in the service of their country.

But, I digress…

The actions of Obama and his Administration were not how a nation is supposed its wounded warriors.

I thank God that we have an American President, once again, who respects and honors our Fighting Men and Women.

These men and women are OUR FAMILY. They are not just numbers on some Federal Government Profit & Loss Database.

President Trump must fulfill his campaign promises to clean up the Department of Veterans Affairs and the malfeasance and abuses found within its hospitals.

Those who have sacrificed so much for our country deserve no less.

I was privileged to be raised by members of the Greatest Generation. The legacy that they gave to me of love of God, Family, and Country is a heritage that I hold very dear.

It is today that we pause to remember their sacrifices at home and abroad. Not only theirs, but the sacrifices made by our Brightest and Best, and their families, yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. – John 15:13

May God bless them all and may He hold them in the hollow of His hand.

The MSNBC Trump Tax Debacle: “Be Careful What You Wish For…”

March 15, 2017

Media-Wolf-NRD-600

As you know, gentle readers, the Main Stream Media, like the rest of their Modern American Liberal Brothers and Sisters, are willing participants in the never-ending National Temper Tantrum being thrown over the election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President by us rubes here in Flyover Country. In fact, they are so upset that they have abandoned any pretense of objectivity, publishing stories about Trump and his Administration, that have all of the veracity of a “Batboy” Article published in the Weekly World News, which used to be available at the checkout lane of the grocery store, but has now morphed into a website.

The Main Stream Media not only lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but now, they also have to face the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who has been treating them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump is speaking, only to find out that they have been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he is trying to forward that day.

In fact, Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Between Trump’s playing them like Charlie Daniels playing a fiddle and average Americans becoming their own reporters through the use of Social Media, “professional journalists” have watched their influence over the daily lives of Americans dwindle and diminish right before their very eyes.

And, quite frankly, they don’t like it one bit.

In fact, they will do anything and everything they can, legal and illegal, in their quest to get Trump out of the White House.

Case in point:

The Associated Press reported last night that

The White House said Tuesday that President Donald Trump made more than $150 million in income in 2005 and paid $38 million in income taxes that year.The acknowledgement came shortly before MSNBC host Rachel Maddow reported on two pages of Trump’s 2005 tax forms on her Tuesday night show.

The records were obtained by Pulitzer prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston, who said he received the documented unsolicited, in the mail.

The documents have become highly sought-after because Trump refused to release his returns during the campaign, breaking a decades-long tradition. He claimed he was under audit by the Internal Revenue Service and said his attorneys had advised against it – though experts and IRS officials said such audits don’t bar taxpayers from releasing their returns.

The White House pushed back pre-emptively Tuesday night, saying that publishing those returns would be illegal.

“You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago,” the White House said in a statement.

The unauthorized release or publishing of federal tax returns is a criminal offense, punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 and up to five years in jail. But Maddow argued that MSNBC was exercising its First Amendment right to publish information in the public interest.

Based on the documents obtained by Johnston, Trump paid $36.5 million in taxes on $153 million in income, for an effective tax rate of around 24 percent. That percentage is higher than the roughly 10 percent the average American pays each year – but below the 27.4 percent that taxpayers earning 1 million dollars a year average, according to data from the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation.

Trump long insisted the American public wasn’t interested in his returns and said little could be learned from them. But Trump’s full returns would contain key details about things like his charitable giving, his income sources, the type of deductions he claimed, how much he earned from his assets and what strategies Trump used to reduce his tax bill.

The issue was a major point of attack from his election rival Hillary Clinton, who suggested Trump had something to hide.

The White House has not said whether or not the president plans to release his returns while he’s in office. More than 1 million people have signed a White House petition urging the president to release them.

Can’t you just see all of the Diehard Hillary Fans and the Internet Trolls lined up in front of their televisions last night, waiting on the “intrepid journalist” Rachel Maddow to “lay the smackdown” on President Trump and somehow usher in “the reign of Queen Hillary”?

Can you imagine the how disappointed they all were when they found out that Maddow’s “exclusive” was a big “nothing burger”?

As Drudge pointed out last night, Trump (25%) actually paid more in 2005 than MSNBC Comcast (24%) and Former President Barack Hussein Obama (19%).

MSNBC’s scheme to “get” President Trump backfired spectacularly.

And, Maddow was left looking like the fool that she is.

Americans are now living in a time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

Average Americans are winning the war against the “New Fascism” of the Tyranny of the Minority by the sharing of information through Social Media.

The Modern American Liberals od the Main Stream Media still just don’t get it.

I predicted a long time ago that their hubris would be their downfall.

By becoming activists, instead of journalists, they are a part of the 24% who identify themselves as “Liberals”, referred to as the “Hive-mind”, because most of the time, they present themselves in public and on the internet, including Facebook Political Pages, as being in lockstep with one another, regurgitating “the Party Line”, about each and every Hot Button Political Issue, resembling the brainwashed Proletariat of the old Soviet Union.

The MSM traded their integrity for a seat in the back of Air Force One in return for helping Hillary win the Presidency.

And now, in an attempt to make up for their part in the Democratic Party Failure of November 8th, 2016, they have joined in with the rest of the sore losers in a massive attempt to bring the 45th President of the United States of American down…by any means necessary.

Fortunately for the American People, who put Trump in office in a fair election…

The sore losers are still a bunch of failures.

Until He Comes,
