But I do see there is one, and my gut tells me it is magnificent. Gail Grafford Canty Dec 31 2018 at 8:54 am Trust the Plan. Soon. kadaka Dec 31 2018 at 12:17 am Ah yes, gallows humor. Question: If the federal government shuts down and no one notices, why should we care? Malatrope Dec 31 2018 at 12:22 am Bingo. Trump is a master of letting the situation speak for itself. NotYetInACamp Dec 31 2018 at 1:08 am No. I don’t believe so. Tell me if it shuts down, please. James Gemind Dec 31 2018 at 6:54 pm At the moment, it is only a partial shutdown, meaning certain non-critical functions are affected. And even in those areas, there are either volunteers filling in for no pay(an example I was given was for a visitor center in a federal park)or very sparse skeleton crews to make sure things that have to run are running. If the shutdown goes past February 10-14, then certain Welfare and Unemployment payments will be withheld. If it gets to March, The Shutdown will go from about 15% of Government, to about 30%. Anyone here recall the ‘Wal~Mart Riots’ under Obama? It could well get that bad in some places, although, with more people off of Welfare and Unemployment, someone with smarts may be able to keep checks going out, even if they are reduced during the shutdown… Delilah T Dec 31 2018 at 12:24 am Government shut down? Gee, and I already got paid. It’s only a partial shutdown, anyway. Keep your eyes on the Silly People. They’re so wrapped up in themselves and their conniving that they’d probably walk into traffic against a red light and not notice that cars are coming at them. I wish all of you a Happy and Prosperous New Year. Jim Dec 31 2018 at 1:04 am I more or less saw that this morning… jaywalking a busy 5 lane road at the edge of town, speed limit 55, on the cell phone. kadaka Dec 31 2018 at 12:34 am Triple-Amputee Veteran Who Is Raising Money For Trump’s Border Wall Has A Fiery Message For Democrats Right now $18,335,756 raised with 302,720 donations, so average amount $60.57. WayneM Dec 31 2018 at 12:56 am As Tim Pool noted recently, DJT is not only transforming the Republicans but he’s succeeded in transforming the Democrats as well. They’re being forced to stand for their “principles” and it’s uglier than most people imagined possible. The swamp remains fetid and full of nastiness, even as the tide is shifting… Delilah T Dec 31 2018 at 1:27 am They have principles??? Seriously??? Did they get them at a discount?? Too Tall Dec 31 2018 at 1:30 am Their “principles” are borrowed from Satan. Deplorable B Woodman Dec 31 2018 at 1:37 am As written and recorded by Saul Alinsky, “Rules For Radicals”, dedicated to Lucifer. Pamela Dec 31 2018 at 3:35 am I think they borrowed them at a discounted rate of interest that is compounding by the minute and way past being paid down, let alone off. John Dec 31 2018 at 3:15 pm Two for one sale. After all, if it weren’t for double standards the Left would have none at all. Deplorable B Woodman Dec 31 2018 at 1:31 am That would be a GREAT political poster. A picture of a three rope gallows, complete with trapdoors, ropes, handles (to release the trapdoors), etc, with the caption “THE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM”. But the cowardly, spineless, yellow, GOPe RINO Republitards wouldn’t DARE use it for fear of offending their pole smoking DildoCrat “friends” across the aisle. NotYetInACamp Dec 31 2018 at 3:39 am Those RINOshits have no friends across the aisle. All of theDemocrats across the aisle are enemies. All of the democrats have embraced being enemies of humanity, and enemies of the USA. Look at their actions. Look at their results. just look at Schumer. Listen to him. Compare how everything he has ever said embraces the agenda he has be3en given to push on that day. He also is a disgusting person morally. That from women who have asked him for political help. He was only interested in the women, not helping them. very Clintonesque of him. Very Democrat. Very Ted Kennedy. And Schumer had, maybe still has, a wife then. The metoo movement needs to take a closer look at that Schmuck and where his schmuck has been or has tried to go. There is no honor in his private life, nor in his public life. The democrats have themselves fouled in and trhe ropes hooked over a multitude of trees, lampposts, doorknobs, and other rope catching places that any serious effort will result in them self politically Arkanciding beyond any of even the Clintons dreams of mayhem. I pray to God that it has been duly noted and evidence has been gathered during the last two years during the psychotic democrat circus that has been going on. the democrats will be extending their psychosis’s to the House and investigating every movement, action, including farts, that the President and every Republican, conservative, libertarian, or any American not doing everything the Democrats demand, and using the House to investigate them for some Democrat prosecutor somewhere or their expected pet prosecutor to attempt to jail for life. This Plan spoken of better work, and they better get many good people on it. And get the backing of the American people aoused to where it will go to if needed. Apply the law. That includes the 14th Amendment. Apply it with vigor. The past 50+ years of Democrat and Uniparty lies and actions demand no less. So many Americans have been hurt that the fallout on non citizens is more than allowed. They have warred against the USA and its people. They deserve what the applied law will do to them. Roland Deschain Dec 31 2018 at 11:17 am “just look at Schumer” No thanks! I want to tear those glasses off of his nose and shove them where the sun don’t shine. He looks more like a ferret than ferret-face Frank from M.A.S.H. interventor Dec 31 2018 at 2:28 pm While I despise Schumer, I know why he wears his glasses so. He had cataract surgery. Afterwards, he probably has 20 20 vision for most things. But, must wear reading glasses. Wears the glasses low on his nose to see clearly beyond close text. billrla Dec 31 2018 at 3:19 pm interventor: I’d say you were a cockeyed optometrist. MasterDiver Dec 31 2018 at 9:46 am Nothing stops us from producing and distributing at he local level. My printer can produce posters, bumper stickers and window decals. Craft printer paper available at Wal-Mart. Zar Belk! JTC Dec 31 2018 at 3:13 pm Don’t do it MD. Let me just guaranfuckingtee you right now that publicly display by poster or t-shirt displaying three nooses and referencing the demonrats will earn you a court case at best or a drive-by at worst for what will be “reported” as an obvious racist threat. I’m sure DBW was being facetious. Wrong though it ma JTC Dec 31 2018 at 3:16 pm Yeah, that dangle was supposed to be “Wrong thought it may be”, which it is of course (the response not the poster). Free speech? Nice theory. Kafiroon Jan 01 2019 at 12:24 am Good advice JTC! Note that not only is most everything we do on line easily hacked, MOST printers leave identifiers. Then the printer makers tell who bought it. Think WWII. JTC Dec 31 2018 at 2:05 am All pretense of reason is abandoned in their singular rabid quest to take down the big D…,but as they seek to replace the electorate, they are sowing the seeds of their own stupid demise as they push the likes of Cotex, the muzzie broad and avowed socialists like Beta and Gillum to spite him,..roiling the entitled masses to dump the old lefty guard and embrace these young empty pods, ensuring their own demise. Hell yeah, give ’em all the line they can run with. Pamela Dec 31 2018 at 3:37 am Slavers Never Change and they have chains that need to be well and truly locked on chattel. JTC Dec 31 2018 at 1:39 pm Slavers operate on what they can steal by hook or by crook; those “chains” they use as binders are made of my money and yours. If that theft can be ended and their checks start bouncing, their cattle -I mean chattel- will be worthless and they will play hell getting the new herd they seek with no green grass or salt lick. Always follow the money. NotYetInACamp Dec 31 2018 at 4:07 am https://splinternews.com/retiring-progressive-congressman-says-there-will-be-a-r-1831367981 Retiring Progressive Congressman Says There Will Be a ‘Ransom’ for Immigration Reform — Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutiérrez has some parting words for incoming Democrats hoping to finish what he started: If you too want immigration reform, you’ll likely be forced to pay a “ransom.” — This person has been actively seeking the destruction of the USA as it was. He is right that his side needs to negotiate. they lost the best deal they would ever get when they did not take President Trump’s DACA compromise. President Trump also had ending chain migration and much much more in that offer. Now the President is letting them hang themselves. Rep Gutierrez is one of those who understood my explanation of Wong vs USA (1898) US Supreme Court. That realization, and Trump’s later public statements showing the President’s similar understanding likely ending Rep Gutierrez’ desire to fight his losing battle. So I see it. The law is very strong against the invaders. ExNuke Dec 31 2018 at 7:04 am I must have missed something since I went “cold turkey” on TV years ago and would rather read a phone book than Twits. They have been recycling the old platform of “Guns Bad, Illegals Good, Free Stuff” forever. Are they really trying to throw the Dependocrats they have been renting since LBJ under the bus? It has already gotten expensive to rent the black vote, how are they going to pay off two or three more victim groups without dipping in to their own pockets? Henry Dec 31 2018 at 1:07 pm What, you think they’re actually spending their OWN money? Peet Dec 31 2018 at 7:14 am > my explanation of Wong vs USA (1898) Could you provide a link please? I’d like to read it. Cliff Dec 31 2018 at 7:31 am Happy New Year. The Democrats will self destruct. PaulS Dec 31 2018 at 9:11 am Provide the rope, and silk scarves, so as not to chafe their delicate skin. Luxury all the way I say. MasterDiver Dec 31 2018 at 9:51 am Didn’t the Thugs use silk scarves to strangle their victims? Ironically fitting. Zar Belk! interventor Dec 31 2018 at 2:31 pm Hung with a velvet rope, like Brit aristocrats. JTC Dec 31 2018 at 11:09 am Correction ExNuke, they are willingly laying their damn selves down under the bus, and literally providing the scarves of strangulation MD notes…to wit: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/glorified-and-vilified-representative-elect-ilhan-omar-tells-critics-%E2%80%98just-deal%E2%80%99/ar-BBRBrtq?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=mailsignout Pay special note to her last line there, in response to a pastor who said the house floor will soon look like an Islamic republic after stripping the two hundred year ban on head coverings (which was adopted with great meaning and debate) to wear hijab: “Well sir,” she wrote on Twitter, “the floor of Congress is going to look like America … And you’re gonna have to just deal.” Don’t say she didn’t warn you. Delilah T Dec 31 2018 at 11:59 pm What’s that proverb? Oh, yeah: pride goeth before a fall… Something like that. She’s not interested in being American. She’s only interested in her own agenda. kadaka Dec 31 2018 at 4:49 pm The offensive Progressive paradigm continues, censor first then apologize only after massive backlash and after “the message” has been sent. FB Post Honoring Slain Police Officer Labeled As ‘Against Our Community Standards’ The post on Facebook read, “This is [O]fficer Singh. He was killed by an ILLEGAL Alien 5 Hours after he took this picture with his beautiful wife, baby and k9! This is precisely why we need to #buildthatwall! RIP hero.” Below the post it says, “This post goes against our Community Standards on hate speech, so no one else can see it,” which is a message from the platform to the user. It’s now “hate speech” to say an illegal alien killed someone? Delilah T Dec 31 2018 at 11:57 pm No, it is not, and you left out the part about Flakebook restoring access to that post after enormous backlash and apologizing, saying ‘it does not violate our community standards’. They had to do the same thing to a pastor who supports a NC state bill requiring public restroom users to use the restroom for their biological sex. Flakebook is getting slammed repeatedly for their own prejudices. When posting these things, if there is a follow-up that says FB was slammed and had to apologize for their skewed perceptions and malapropisms, then make sure that is included. The WHOLE story is what counts, not just the nasty attitude part. Frankly, since I don’t do Flakebook and don’t want to, I see it as nothing but a ridiculous waste of time. Unless you have a business or a charity group like a cat adoption site, it’s just another opportunity for people to be obnoxious and let us all know it. But that last part – letting us all know what they are really like – makes it somewhat useful. kadaka Jan 01 2019 at 12:07 am “you left out the part” That was implied in the “then apologize” part, least I thought it was, and you successfully clicked through for more info. Happy New Year, in about 50 minutes. Pouring rain, wet roads, good weather for driving home after celebrating. Stay safe! Lyle Jan 01 2019 at 4:20 pm “Those RINOshits have no friends across the aisle. All of theDemocrats across the aisle are enemies.” Spoken like a football fan. In fact both teams, in cooperation with the league, no matter the game, are out to profit as much from you as possible. As in football, you may be rooting enthusiastically for one team (Party) or the other, but both teams are members of the same league, and the players and the coaches are readily exchanged between teams. The teams are indeed “enemies” while on the field and on camera, but ultimately it is the popularity of the game that is important, remember. The league profits no matter who wins or loses, but the more intense the competition, the greater the conflict, the more dedicated and skilled the players, the more people tune in, and so the greater the league profits. And thus you are conditioned to give up your precious life’s resources of time, attention and wealth, not only willingly but sometimes enthusiastically. The more intense the conflict, the better. If one team were to dominate for too long, then the game would become uninteresting and you’d turn your attentions elsewhere, maybe even to the truth, and so, surely, something would have to be done to prevent that from happening. League profits would be at risk. Rather, outcomes must always be in some state of uncertainty.
