  • How Has the Right Wing Takeover of the GOP and the Media Changed America?   3 days 8 hours ago

    Good Wednesday HotCoffee. I had a great Mon and Tues working with kids 8-16 with handicaps. Mostly missing limbs and a few in wheelchairs for life. They were warming up for national para Olympics events in a variety of sports including track, field, archery and shooting sports. We held the airgun matches at our range and I have never been so inspired in my life. Nothing but smiles and laughter from these polite young kids.

    Let's hope the leftie/socialists haven't yet figured out they have fallen into Trump's trap. Useful idiots like Hatrmann, Miller, and the like continue with their stupid "everything republican is racist"

    Hoot of the day, Trump's popularity is growing since the leftie/socialist media misquoted Trump's tweet over and over.

  • How Has the Right Wing Takeover of the GOP and the Media Changed America?   3 days 9 hours ago

    Lets review...shall we?

    Collusion? Not according to a too long investigation by Mueller. Economy collapsing? Hardly, with wages and employment up and the stock market at an all time high. If you have a 401K account, send Trump a thank you note. Trump's poll numbers are up and match Obama's at the same time in their terms. And he is likely to be the first president since WW II not to start a conflict somewhere. Emoluments trouble? Trump just won a lawsuit in connection to that challenge. He has also put two judges on the Supreme Court.

    Now let us consider the presidential candidates from the party of death (they used to be called the democrats). Most are advocating doing away with employer based health insurance, even though the vast majority of american citizens who have them like them. The party of death advocates for open borders and free healthcare for illegal immigrants. Or how about publicly funded abortions for trans men? Thats a good one. Does anyone remember "safe, legal, and rare"? And don't forget reparations for the black community. Gun confiscation is always on the list for the death party too. I don't know why they even bother with all of this since they think the world is coming to an end tomorrow due to climate change.

    Now think about this. Donald Trump has now emerged as the safe candidate in the upcoming election at least as compared to Harris, Pocahontas, Sanders, Spartacus, etc. Why do you think Biden still leads the polls? Because he at least appears somewhat normal as compared to the death party candidates. I wonder though if Obama knew Joe was a racist. Oh well, every white person is now a racist so Joe really can't help it.

    Think about how screwed up the democratic party has now become that they make the Donald appear as the level headed person.

  • How Do We Help the Victims of This "Reality Star" President?   3 days 11 hours ago

    Common sense from Steve Cortes: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2019/07/17/the_lefts_broad_bigoted_politics_of_vilification_140798.html

    Excerpts:

    The iconic late poet Maya Angelou once said, “When people show you who they are, believe them.” That simple advice seems especially relevant regarding the American left in 2019. Both politicians and activists of the Democratic media complex scurry to charge racism against President Trump and our nationalist movement, when in reality they themselves employ brutally divisive political strategies buttressed by their own increasingly bigoted thinking.

    Sadly, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley echoes the divisive designs of my cable news counterparts. Specifically, she told the uber-leftist “woke-palooza” Netroots Nation crowd that “we don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice.” Her message -- really her warning -- was crystal clear: We on the left view you not as a human being with thoughts and dignity and a soul, but rather as a skin-deep political robot. As such, deviations from the progressive party line will not be tolerated, particularly from minorities. Her thinking flows from the same bigoted philosophy that attacked me on CNN Monday night.

    Moreover, many minorities like me gravitate to President Trump not because he speaks delicately or because he never offends us (or others), but rather because he has become the political warrior we need. He fights the status quo at home and abroad and demands that the interests of working-class Americans – many of whom are black and brown – take priority. Thus, he works for secure borders to protect minority citizens from illegal alien crime and unfair workforce competition, and restructures trade deals that had decimated manufacturing in America. He has also unleashed the power of small business through tax and regulatory relief, a particularly powerful propellant for our highly entrepreneurial Hispanic communities. This growth explains why Hispanic wage growth now vastly exceeds the national average, a stark contrast to the slow-growth Obama era. Such real-world, tangible improvements easily eclipse the false promises and lofty rhetoric the Democrats have directed toward minorities for decades.

    This resurgence will not be deterred by the fear-mongering and intimidation of luminaries of the New York Times, TV news, and the halls of Congress. Their bigotry must be exposed. Their paradoxical prejudice must be revealed. And when these self-serving, manipulative leftist bigots show us who they are, believe them.

  • How Has the Right Wing Takeover of the GOP and the Media Changed America?   3 days 12 hours ago

    The problem is that the party of death in congress has done absolutely nothing about the immigration invasion/problem. After all, they will condone anything if they think it is to their political advantage. And the repubs are not much better.

    They should all be impeached for dereliction of duty for not protecting this country. Trump's repeated calls for congress to do something to fix the illegal immigration crisis are right on the mark.

  • The New Horror Awaiting Us If the GOP Is Successful   3 days 13 hours ago

    As usual, you have it backwards. The political dynamite is the party of death's socialist plan to completely do away with private health insurance. Most people who have employer provided plans are satisfied and want to keep them. What does Bernie plan to do about them?

    Gee Thom, I guess the right wants to stop sh*t like this....But Nancy & Gavin are too busy....kissing Butt.... why? You didn't mention AOC has an invitation to spend an hour on Hannity anytime and make her case....after her boyfriend writes her opinion for her.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Nearly two-dozen Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang members who operate in the San Fernando Valley have been charged with a series of ruthless murders, some of which involved hacking people to death with machetes in the Angeles National Forest.


    (CBS2)

    The 22 suspects were indicted by a grand jury last week on charges of committing and/or coordinating the murders of seven people over the past two years, according to a federal RICO indictment unsealed Monday.

    Sadly I have to confess I voted for these people for many years...that thought is very humbling.

    And shame on you Thom for promoting this with your daily hatred of Trump whom with the slightest help from congress could stop much of it.

    It's her duty to call Americans racist and stir up hated against the Jewish people cause we're just not Somali enough for her.

    Posted on July 16, 2019 by Scott Johnson in Identity Politics, The sick leftIdentity politics explained

    Rep. Ayanna Pressley is the least known of the four horsewomen of the Democrat apocalypse, but tune into her teaching. She has condensed the doctrine of identity politics that they promote into a totalitarian catechism (video below). Here we have identity politics for dummies — the Democrat variation of the Know Nothing movement. As Lincoln put it:

    Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we begin by declaring that “all men are created equal.” We now practically read it “all men are created equal, except negroes.” When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read “all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and catholics.” When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no preten[s]e of loving liberty-to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocr[is]y.

    Shut up, she explained.

    .@RepPressley:

    “We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice.” pic.twitter.com/b2TibMhPky

  • Social Media Has Created the "Hive Mind" & Let It Loose Into America   4 days 8 hours ago

    The comments from Omar were laughable. 99% of her remarks were lies. The usual, and false, children in cages, women drinking out of toilets, and millions (yes, she said millions) of americans dying because of Trump's health care policies. Wouldn't the bodies be piling up by now? She said Trump should be impeached for his crimes. What crimes? Even Mueller gave him a pass.

    The only thing she said that was true was Trump's private remarks on the Access Hollywood tape. As if democrats care about sexcapades. At least they say they don't. Plus Trump was a private citizen at the time.

    In any event, they are mad because Trump is calling them out and they can't stand it. Well they better get used to it.

  • Social Media Has Created the "Hive Mind" & Let It Loose Into America   4 days 11 hours ago

    Good Tuesday Hotcoffee and Coalage3,

    Right on Coalage,

    I will try and ignore the fact the leftie/socialists have chosen to eliminate the second part of President Trumps tweet or the remarks that Omar made just the day before.

    I believe President Trump is making these for useful idiots for his re-election. If the democrat party comes to the support of these fools all Trump has to do is tie the entire democrat party to these buffoons and cherry pick their idiotic demands in ten second clips six weeks before election time. If the democrat party does not support "the squad" the party is fractured and recovery would be near impossible. Much like Clinton stabbing Sanders in the eye in 2016 where the socialists were so pissed they helped Trump sweep this country county by county.

    If any of the socialist party wants to see where these four idiots stand with the public,

  • Social Media Has Created the "Hive Mind" & Let It Loose Into America   4 days 13 hours ago

    So which hive are the gang of four using to spread their fascist, rascist vitriol? Some of the comments I have heard attributed to these representatives is just as vile and hateful as anything that Trump has uttered. They obviously hate white people, especially if you are jewish.

    When Trump told them to "go back", at least he added they should then come back and show us they fixed the problems.

    Thom - tell me what the gang of four has done to stop illegal immigration. Tell me anything that they have done to try and fix this problem. And yes, it is a problem that needs some solution other than just saying "come on in everybody".

    And they spouted more lies yesterday. Children in cages, women drinking from toilets. Why do democrats condone outright these falsehoods? The bigger question is why they do absolutely nothing to alleviate this crisis.

    Trump has been calling on the congress to come up with a solution to the immigration issue since he was elected, and he is 100% correct. This problem should be layed at their feet. Trump should threaten to close certain portions of the southern border until they come up with legislation. The american people are not against immigration, and neither is Trump. But they are against open borders. That will never be accepted.

    But the party of death is trying to score political points from this nonsense instead of actually looking for a solution. And the repubs aren't much better. Its disgraceful and congress should be impeached for failing to protect the country they swore an oath to defend.

  • Is America no longer "the great melting pot"?   4 days 13 hours ago

    Has the party of death, otherwise known as democrats, moved so far to the left that they think that spouting fasicst, racist language will win them the WH in 2020? Witness the remarks from Pressley at Nutroots. Black and brown people need to speak up but only if you are going to advance a certain agenda. Otherwise keep your mouth shut.

    Thom - where is your outrage against these obviously bigoted and racist remarks? Are you going to do nothing?

    Hey Diane,

    snip....

    Quite the hilarious dilemma. Pass the Orville Redenbacher while we watch them cannibalize themselves in Donner Party 2: Election Boogaloo.

    Oh Nancy Pelosi, you thought you could harness the eager energy of these Socialist Sisters of Mediocrity for your own purposes, but you didn’t quite understand the situation. For limo libs like you – literally, because you’re a zillionaire – all this “for the little guy” stuff was always just a pose and a cynical scam. You don’t believe it. You just exploit it because you figure that the shiftless saps and lay-about suckers are your constituency will like it, and they do. You talk a good game about helping and caring for the downtrodden, but if one of the local bums tried to use the sidewalk in your neighborhood as a john, you’d have the Scat Francisco PD all over him like Jerry Nadler on a doughnut.

    You’ve gotten used to posing as the heroic rebel voice speaking out in a stirring defense of the status quo that made you rich n’ powerful. All the other Democrats used to feel the same way. You were all in on the scam. Wink, nod and back to business as usual. But these dummies, leveraging their youthful inexperience, actually believe the nonsense they spew – that you all spew – and they are now learning that you really don’t.

    Former ICE director schools AOC at congressional hearing: https://pjmedia.com/trending/former-ice-director-to-aoc-u-s-citizens-who-commit-crimes-get-separated-from-their-families/

    Excerpts:

    Under questioning from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) about the Trump administration’s implementation of a “zero tolerance” policy at the border, former Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan said U.S. citizens get separated from their families if they commit crimes.

    Ocasio-Cortez mentioned a memo Homan had signed, referring to him as the “author” of family separation. Homen told the committee that the memo included a “zero tolerance” policy as one of several recommendations to “secure the border and save lives.”

    “Zero tolerance was interpreted as the policy that separated the children from their parents,” Ocasio-Cortez said to Homan on Friday during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing titled, The Trump Administration’s Child Separation Policy: Substantiated Allegations of Mistreatment.

    “If I get arrested for DUI and I have a young child in the car I’m going to be separated,” Homan replied. “When I was a police officer in New York and I arrested a father for domestic violence, I separated that father from his family.”

    “Mr. Homan, with all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

    “When you’re in this country illegally, it’s violation 8, United States Code 1325,” he answered.

    “Seeking asylum is legal,” she shot back.

    “If you want to seek asylum, you go through a port of entry. Do it the legal way. The attorney general of the United States has made that clear,” he said.

    “Okay,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
