“Plan C is not ‘the organisation of the working classes’ nor do we see a necessity for one,” declares the leading Luxury Communist organization in the UK. Luxury Communism isn’t for the working class. Plan C’s motto of “Luxury for All” could just as easily be the slogan for a new hotel or car, but actually encapsulates where the left is now. It isn’t fighting for necessities, but exploiting identity politics to divide up government luxuries. America’s “Socialist Moment” would more...
 
There is nothing like dealing with Chuck Grassley. After setting a deadline of 10:AM Friday for Christine Ford to decide if she would tell her story Monday, Ford's attorney announced late Thursday that Ford would be willing to testify IF CERTAIN CONDITIONS WERE MET AND NOT ON MONDAY, BUT LATER NEXT WEEK!!! As usual Grassley is willing to consider all things Ford's lawyer(s) toss in at the last minute. Btw, this is a different lawyer than the one we have heard from last week. T he...
 
When I was a college boxer, before the last two rounds my trainer would say to me, “Let’s go! Championship rounds — give me everything you got.” My opponent and I would come out of our corners and give everything we had, throwing our hardest punches, desperately trying to take the other guy out. We are now into the championship rounds of the fight between President Donald Trump and the Mueller coup. They will be throwing everything they have at the president for the next two months...
 
Just weeks before the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and many of her corporate news media allies were attacking Donald Trump for his refusal to say whether he would accept the results of the 2016 presidential election. Now Clinton has come out this week with an article in The Atlantic and tweets questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 election, questioning that she previously said was "threatening our democracy." In her article in The Atlantic published this past...
 
Deep State: For those who doubt the existence of the so-called Deep State, recent unsettling news provides more than ample proof it exists. Indeed, not only does the Deep State exist, it's far more dangerous to Americans' liberties than first thought. President Trump earlier this week said that he would release a trove of documents related to the Russia investigation and declassify their contents. Included are 21 pages taken from a June 2017 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA)...
 
Red Ink: Are President Trump's massive tax cuts what's driving federal deficits upward. Everyone says so. But, it's not true. It's just a way for lawmakers to distract the public while they crank up the spending machine. Just like the Senate did this week. Earlier this week, Trump's top economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, gave a talk at the Economic Club of New York in which he said that tax cuts aren't to blame for deficits . "People are quick to blame deficits on tax cuts, but I...
 

Trump Voters and the Bitter Elites


heartland-american  •  News & Politics  •  79 Comments  •  43 minutes ago  By  skrekk
Since the 9 th of November 2016, I and 63 million other Americans have been collectively characterized as racists, misogynists, Nazi sympathizers and ignorant simpletons because we voted for Donald Trump.  Whether it is the media, the denizens of Democratic Party, the NeverTrumpers, the elitists or the elitist wannabes, this Greek chorus has been mindlessly spouting these blanket accusations in their revulsion over the unexpected Trump victory.  In their addled thought process this is the...

The head of the private high school attended by a woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of assaulting her issued a statement in support of the accuser. The Washington Post reported Sunday that Christine Blasey Ford, a 51-year-old research psychologist in Northern California, is alleging that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland. Kavanaugh has denied the allegation, and both have...
 
The woman who wrote a letter accusing Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault is now coming forward, motivated by the publicizing of her original letter and by a "civic responsibility" to tell the story. Her account is harrowing . While his friend watched, she said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore...
 
Last Friday, the Texas Supreme Court handed a group of Christian cheerleaders a victory in their lawsuit that involved run-through banners that included Bible verses. The cheerleaders have won their case at every level-district court, appeals court, and the Texas Supreme Court, ruling that they have a First Amendment right to display religious messages at school events. The dispute began in 2012, when middle school and high school cheerleaders at public schools in Kountze, Texas,...
 

Feinstein v. Kavanaugh


xxjefferson51  •  News & Politics  •  1 Comments  •  2 hours ago  By  xxjefferson51
Sen. Dianne Feinstein's distortion of data points to the agenda driving this new discussion from the left to derail the Kavanaugh vote by any means necessary. Nothing, certainly not facts, will get in their way. Bottom line: What's the REAL reason Democrats' are so adamant about blocking Kavanaugh's confirmation? While questioning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh about abortion during his Senate confirmation hearings,...
 
Social Media Bias: President Trump has criticized the major social media and web search sites, in particular Amazon, Facebook, Google and Twitter, for their anti-conservative bias. Is his critique valid? A controversial new report suggests the answer is yes.

Cory Booker Admitted to Groping Classmate in 1992

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., admitted to having groped a high school classmate in a column for his college newspaper, saying he had “a wake up call” about sexual respect, according to The Washington Post. Booker recounted the story in The Stanford Daily 1992, while a student at Stanford University. He wrote that on New Year’s Eve 1984, when the senator was 15, he gave a female friend a hug and she gave him “an overwhelming kiss.” “I slowly reached for her breast,” he recalled....
 
As the world knows, Judge Kavanaugh, 17 years old at the time , is being accused of assaulting a 15-year-old Christine Blasey (now Ford) when both were in high school. Blasey did not report the incident to authorities or apparently anyone else at the time. Thus, no charges were filed much less was Kavanaugh prosecuted. Again, if the charges are true — and there is zero evidence that is the case, not to mention that Kavanaugh not only denies the incident but also that he was even at the...

Brett Kavanaugh's friend Mark Judge is a key witness to the alleged sexual assault. He is identified by name as being there when she says it happened.  Imagine an alleged eyewitness to a crime saying he doesn't want to participate in the fact finding.  If he doesnt remember what happened because he was dead drunk, then he can say that under oath.  The real reason he and the republicans don't want him to testify is because he has problematic (for Kavanaugh) statements and writings...
