Congress to Ignore Trump's Wall Request in New Budget Move

Congress looks like it will ignore the request for wall funds from the Trump administration in its new stop-gap spending bill.

According to The Hill:

Lawmakers are preparing to ignore President Trump’s request to loosen restrictions on border wall funding as part of a short-term spending deal.

The ask, included in the Trump administration’s 21-page wish list for a continuing resolution (CR), comes amid renewed tensions over the border ahead of a Sept. 30 deadline to avoid another government shutdown. The administration also announced recently it was moving forward with shifting $3.6 billion from military projects to wall construction.

Congressional Republicans have stressed that they support the CR funding request, which would let the administration use money to build border barriers outside the Rio Grande Valley Sector. But now they’re sending early warning signals that they don’t expect the CR to include language granting the White House request.

“Hopefully they can work out a deal where there’s maximum flexibility for the president when it comes to money for the wall, but I’m sure the Democrats will push hard back against that,” said Sen. John Thune (S.D.), the No. 2 Senate Republican.

Republicans are not optimistic that they can get Democrats to grant Trump’s request. This obstruction has forced President Trump to reallocate defense funds to Democrats dismay.

On 9.11.19 we solemnly remember the tragedy of 9/11 and not the fact that “Some People Did Something.”

The attack was 18 years ago but countless still feel the pain caused by those who were lost that day. Radical Islamic terrorism was responsible for the attack and we have been getting payback on these terrorists ever since. Here are the biggest wins against Islamic terrorism on video:

House GOP Members Urges Dems to Pursue Impeaching Trump

HOW ABOUT A TRIPLE DOG DARE YOU?

House GOP member Tom McClintock is strongly urging House Democrats to move forward with their impeachment inquiry of President Trump.

It appears McClintock is growing frustrated with the Dems fixation with impeachment but also their inability to move the ball forward.

According to Fox News:

A House Republican issued a “double dog dare” to Democrats on the Judiciary Committee Thursday, challenging them to call a vote on the impeachment of President Trump.

Rep. Tom McClintock, of California, took issue with House Democrats, who took a big step in their impeachment push as they set the ground rules for a formal committee inquiry.

“If the majority wants to exercise the House’s power of impeachment, all you got to do is ask the House to do so,” McClintock said. “All you have to do is ask the House that it direct and authorize this committee to conduct an impeachment inquiry. That’s all you have to do.”

“Resolve that the House authorizes the Judiciary Committee to conduct an inquiry into the impeachment of the president. It’s that simple. I dare you to do it. In fact, I double dog dare you to do it. Have the House vote on those 18 words and then go at it. Why won’t you do that?”

Pelosi has expressed her skepticism of impeachment. However, Pelosi has expressed support for increased investigations and for Nadler’s seemingly unending quest.

Trump Bridles Obama's Water Power Grab Rules

NEVER STOP MAKING D’OH!BAMBAM THE JIHADI ANTI-ameriKan THAT THE FOOL IS!

The president has rolled back yet another of his predecessor’s regulatory power grabs.

For most people, getting fined millions of dollars or being thrown into the slammer because of some innocuous violation of federal water rules seems unfathomable. But this isn’t hyperbole. Thanks to the Obama administration, fines and/or imprisonment for violating the Clean Water Rule (a.k.a “Waters of the U.S.”) became a real possibility if you weren’t paying close enough attention to the onerous regulations it imposed. And that’s assuming paying close enough attention even mattered.

We documented one such case back in March 2017. At the time, a farmer by the name of John Duarte was handed a $2.8 million fine. His sin? Plowing and planting wheat on his own land, which was lodged in wetlands. The government concluded that Duarte had failed to obtain certain permits and was thus liable for nearly $3 million in punitive fees. This was in addition to the government’s blatantly ignoring agricultural exemptions.

It gets worse.

As The Daily Caller further reveals, “In a 2016 case … Navy veteran Joe Robertson was criminally prosecuted and served 18 months in prison because he dug ponds around his Montana home in the hopes of keeping wildfires at bay. The ponds were connected to a foot-wide ‘river,’ so the EPA determined that Robertson had been digging too close to ‘navigable water’ without a permit.”

Thankfully, sanity is being restored.

According to an op-ed published Thursday by EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler and Army for Civil Works Assistant Secretary R.D. James, “Today, EPA and the Department of the Army will finalize a rule to repeal the previous administration’s overreach in the federal regulation of waters and wetlands. This action officially ends an egregious power grab and sets the stage for a new rule that will provide much-needed regulatory certainty for farmers, home builders, and property owners nationwide.”

In other words, the rule is being compressed into what Wheeler and James say is “one standard that can advance economic development and environmental protection.” Obviously, ensuring that our water remains clean is a noble endeavor. But undermining property rights through onerous regulation isn’t the way to achieve it.

President Trump Calls For Obama Book Deal, Netflix Deal and “Congressional Slush Fund” to be Investigated

What we here is an American Hero vs an ameriKan Zero…

Hero vs ZeroPresident Trump unleashed on Barack Obama and the Democrats Monday morning in a tweetstorm and called for the Justice Department to investigate the former president’s many sweetheart deals.

Trump (and the American people) still have not forgotten about the Congressional slush fund used to pay off sexual harassment claims against lawmakers, and on Monday the president called for the slush fund to be investigated.

“House Judiciary has given up on the Mueller Report, sadly for them after two years and $40,000,000 spent – ZERO COLLUSION, ZERO OBSTRUCTION. So they say, OK, lets look at everything else, and all of the deals that “Trump” has done over his lifetime. But it doesn’t work that way. I have a better idea. Look at the Obama Book Deal, or the ridiculous Netflix deal. Then look at all the deals made by the Dems in Congress, the “Congressional Slush Fund,” and lastly the IG Reports. Take a look at them. Those investigations would be over FAST!” Trump said in a pair of tweets Monday morning.

Book deals, Netflix and the Obama Foundation are just a few ways the Obamas have been able to enrich themselves since leaving the White House.

In fact, the Obamas just purchased a $15 million estate in Martha’s Vineyard — it pays to run a crime spree for eight years.

But the Democrats are hell bent on destroying Donald Trump and have launched several lawsuits against the president claiming he is violating the emoluments clause.

The emoluments clause is a provision that bars US presidents from accepting gifts from foreign governments without permission from Congress first.

Trump is losing money serving as US President and he donates his salary to various causes as a way to give back even more — a true servant of the American people.

Trump fired off another pair of tweets slamming Obama again for his sweetheart Netflix deal.

WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: TRUMP IS FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING AMERICA

Personally, I have been praying earnestly for a Man or a Woman that would save this Nation from itself. President Trump was delivered to us! PRAISE THE LORD!

Also, I have been saying what Wayne Allyn Root says in this article below, and I quote…

President Trump - 2020 Victory!What a run President Trump is on. My last column outlined the many great achievements by Trump in the areas of economy, jobs, prosperity, poverty and border security. Trump is on the greatest winning streak of his presidency.

What I didn’t imagine when I finished writing my column, was that Trump was only getting started. The great news got even greater, later in the week.

First, the U.S. Supreme Court gave President Trump perhaps his biggest victory yet, by allowing Trump’s asylum restrictions to take effect. Trump just changed the entire dynamics of illegal immigration and border security. The days of yelling “Asylum” and being instantly let into America are over. Now illegal aliens must wait in Mexico, and if they lose their court hearing, they will never step foot in the USA.

Coupled with the July Supreme Court ruling backing Trump’s bold move to declare a National Security Emergency and divert billions of dollars in Pentagon funding to building of the wall, Trump is finally making good on his promise to secure our Southern Border.

The Trump administration just announced those funds will be used to build 450 to 500 miles of wall along the Mexican border by the end of 2020. I am honored to have played a key role in securing America’s border.

Next came the news that Trump’s deployment of 5,500 military troops on our Southern border is being extended another year. More border security.

It has taken 2 ½ years, but Trump is making good on his pledge to secure the border, build the wall and keep illegal aliens out of our country. It’s been a brutal battle. Democrats have obstructed Trump every step of the way. Victory was achieved inch by inch. But it’s clear now, Trump is winning the war.

I wrote the national business bestselling book, “The Power of Relentless.” I believe the single most important trait to success is being relentless. Keep fighting, keep attacking, never give up. This is Trump’s greatest trait. He may be the most relentless human being in world history. You can stall Trump, but you can’t stop him.

But there was more great news to come.

The US Senate this week confirmed Trump’s 150th federal judge. Trump has confirmed more federal judges than Obama ever dreamed of. Trump makes Obama look like a slacker.

Just as with his immigration policy, Trump is dramatically re-making the federal court system in favor of conservative judges.

Then there’s the news out of Iran on Friday. Because of Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, Iran’s economy, government and pension funds are on the verge of total collapse.

This news was announced on Friday by the National Security Council. Iran can no longer fund terrorism around the world. They can no longer afford to wage war with Israel. They can’t even afford the materials to build nuclear bombs and threaten the world. Trump has turned Iran into a “paper Tiger.”

I have no doubt Trump is now headed for an electoral landslide re-election.

I want you to dream with me for a moment. Just imagine what Trump will achieve if he has almost six more years to relentlessly stamp America with his conservative, pro business, America First agenda.

It was Obama’s dream. But ironically, it’s Trump who will fundamentally change America.

‘THEY SHOULD BE SUED!’ Trump Blasts New York Times For Fake News Kavanaugh Story

Click the picture for Gateway Pundit for the Tweets…quite a few!

Trump PISSED OFF at Lame Stream Media!President Trump on Monday ripped the New York Times for its bogus story on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

The Times ran a pathetic piece on Saturday in which former Yale student and Kavanaugh classmate Max Stier claimed Kavanaugh dropped his pants at a college party, prompting others there to grab Kavanaugh’s penis and push it into the hand of a female.

The story, based on a new yet-to-be released book, was garbage. The Times didn’t include in its story that friends of the alleged victim told the book authors that she doesn’t remember a thing about the alleged incident.

The emergence of that key fact prompted this later “correction.”

“An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party,” The Times wrote in a correction Monday. “The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.”

Enter Trump.

“‘The New York Times walks back report on Kavanaugh assault claim,”‘ Trump wrote Monday on Twitter, “Fox and Friends.” “The one who is actually being assaulted is Justice Kavanaugh — Assaulted by lies and Fake News!” he said. “This is all about the LameStream Media working with their partner, the Dems.”

Trump went on to quote Fox contributor Bongino: “What’s happening to Justice Kavanaugh is a disgrace. This guy is not a good man, he is a great man. He has to go to his church with his family while these terrible reports are being written about him, a disgrace!”

The Trump said Kavanaugh ought to sue.

“Just Out: ‘Kavanaugh accuser doesn’t recall incident.’ @foxandfriends DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT THESE HORRIBLE PEOPLE WILL DO OR SAY. They are looking to destroy, and influence his opinions — but played the game badly,” he wrote. “They should be sued!”

Here We Go Again - Drone Strikes in Saudi Arabia Shut Down Half of Kingdom’s Oil Production 

US Blames Iran - Possible Cruise Missile Attacks

Matthew 24:4-8; And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.

As some of you that know me personally and have been with me at many rallies and pressure points since 2008 all over this nation, I have BEEN THERE and DONE THAT!

Do we need Boots On the Ground? Well, seeing that “we” have been there and done that, THERE HAVE BEEN BOOTS ON THE GROUND IN IRAN FOR ABOUT 35 YEARS! GET OVER IT!

Now, do we need Marines, Army, Navy “soldiers” in Iran? No. Not at the moment. The USA HAS the capabilities to LEVEL Teheran flatter than our own Deep Valley USA…in a nanosecond! Will it be done? Perhaps…

This IS a Cruise Missile attack NOT fired from “drones”…

A drone attack this weekend shut down half of Saudi Arabian oil production.

The US blamed Iran for the attack.

And later today the United States released satellite pictures showing th surgical strike on the oil facility in Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia.

The “drones” of the theoretical Iranian backed satanic Houthis morons (which they do NOT have at their disposals) fired North Korean Cruise Missiles…trust me…from Iran or satanic Iranian Sunni Jihadi Scum Bags in Iraq. The satanic Houthis Jihadi Iranian Scum Bags in Yemen DID not fire cruise missiles from Yemen. We have SATELLITES moniroring ALL of the Middle East.

US officials say evidence now pointing towards cruise missile attacks from Iraq or Iran, not drone strikes from Houthis in Yemen.

Yes. Our satellites WATCHED it happen!

Oil prices are expected to surge on Monday.

Hopefully, NOT, in the USA because the USA doesn’t buy oil from Saudi Arabia anymore…Praise the Lord!

Steve Bannon: “You Haven’t Seen Anything, The 2020 Campaign Will Go Down as the Most Vitriolic and Nastiest in American History” (VIDEO)

ROGER THAT and AMEN!

Steve BannonOn Friday night Steve Bannon, the former Chief Strategist for President Donald Trump, came to St. Louis for an unofficial viewing of his latest film project, “Claws of the Red Dragon.” 

The film, set for a September release, is based on arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou and exposes the Chinese tech giant’s lies and political intimidation.

Steve delivered a short speech at The Schlafly Eagle Council co-sponsored by The Gateway Pundit.

During his remarks Steve warned that the upcoming campaign will go down as the most vitriolic and nastiest in American history.

Steve Bannon: We are in the dark valleys like we were in the 1930s. And it takes leadership like we got out of the last time with Ronald Reagan and victory, not compromise, victory. What’s going to get us out of here now over the next five years is victory. That’s why Trump, the next time you have this gathering we’ll be in the middle of the dog fight. Do you think it’s been unpleasant and nasty to date? You haven’t seen anything. The 2020 campaign will go down as the most vitriolic and nastiest in American history. It’s very simple. We win, we save the country.

YOU TUBE WILL  NOT ALLOW EMBEDS OF THIS VIDEO! IMAGINE THAT?

Google Is Evil: YouTube Censors Top Trump Media Outlet Right Side Broadcasting Network – Removes Live-Stream Capabilities

No. Google cannot be TRULY classified as EVIL. Gaggle MUST be classified as SATANIC. Period. End of discussion. What does it say in Scripture about these satanic thugs?

1 Timothy 6:6-10; But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

In verse 10 from the above citation, where it states “the love of money” in the Greek is: philargyria (fē-lär-gü-rē’-ä) which IS AVARICE! One just MUST have to have it, no matter what! Sounds like our HUMONGOUS UNCONSTITUTIONAL Federal AND STATE “legislatures”. Doesn’t it?

On November 2, 2016 one week before the national election Right Side Broadcasting Network (RSBN) confirmed they had their live stream disabled by YouTube, after having their live stream camera sabotaged that morning.

RSBN is a popular pro-Trump publisher that live-streams Trump public appearances and rallies.

In February 2017 Google-YouTube began censoring and preventing views to RSBN. The company’s traffic lost up to 90% of its traffic.

In February 2018 RSBN reporter Margaret Howell joined The Gateway Pundit at the Newseum in Washington DC to discuss how tech giants such as Facebook, Google, and Youtube were taking direct orders from far left groups like Media Matters to censor conservative voices. In multiple examples, Howell discussed how if you are branded as a conservative on social media, these companies will go as far as to remove live videos and videos with no actual political context because they want to prevent any potential message from getting through their gates.

RSBN has suffered immensely during the Trump years. The left wants them silenced.

On Sunday Right Side Broadcasting Network announced that after 300 million+ views of PresidentTrump rallies and four years of following the rules on YouTube, their live-streaming ability was taken away with no explanation.

Surprise! Latest Accuser behind Debunked Kavanaugh Hit Piece Is Clinton Lawyer and Obama, DNC Donor

IMAGINE THAT! A DRUNKEN BOLSHEVIK THAT CANNOT REMEMBER A BLOODY THING…35 YEARS AGO…IS STILL GOING AFTER A GODLY CONSERVATIVE VOICE ON SCOTUS! IMAGINE THAT!

Click the picture for Gateway Pundit

The New Yorker dropped a story in September 2018 of a second woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of lewd behavior some 30 years ago.

Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer released the report in the New Yorker from a second woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct — and this time it included a dildo.

The 53-year-old accuser Deborah Ramirez told the New Yorker that she was initially hesitant to speak out because she was drunk at the time and her memory had gaps. She spent six days “carefully assessing her memories” and consulting with her attorney before going public.

This was amazing —During the investigation two male students who were allegedly at the party, the wife of another male student, and three other Yale classmates all told Ronan Farrow that there was NO WAY Kavanaugh assaulted Ramirez.

The New Yorker ran with the story anyway without any credible evidence …only wild 30-year-old accusations from a drunk. 
It was so bad The New York Times turned the story down.
That’s pretty bad!

But the liberal media pushed the same debunked story this past weekend.

The fact that it was already debunked did not make any headlines.

What the media did not tell you is that the man who is behind the latest allegations is a far left hack.

Max Stier is President and CEO, Partnership for Public Service.

What this group is into is the high performance work organizations (HPWO); in short, systems philosophy of managed change in the pursuit of moving the greatest mass of the people from where “they are now” to “where we want them to be” according to a strategic plan.

Then there is this – Max Stier is a former Clinton lawyer.

And this, from FEC.gov – Stier is a committed leftist who donated to the Obama campaign and DNC:

Last month, the Washington Examiner published a piece focusing on Nadler requesting the National Archives turn over thousands of pages of documents from when Kavanaugh worked in the White House Counsel office.

And, right on cue, this accusation resurfaces in the leftist media.

Brett Kavanaugh will have to act against these far left accusers or they will continue their attacks.

The Left Hopes to Destroy Christianity by Changing It

Didn’t our very FIRST Rezident Muzzie Hussein D’Oh!BamBam say we are no longer a Christian Nation?

America IS a Christian Nation. The Bolsheviks can kiss my Rebel arse!The United States “is a Christian nation.” These words seem shocking today, but they were part of the 1892 Supreme Court decision in Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States.  They were penned by Justice    David J. Brewer as he wrote for the majority.

President Harry Truman once said, “We must never forget that this country was founded by men who came to these shores to worship God as they pleased.  Catholics, Jews, and Protestants, all came here for this great purpose.  They did not come here to do as they pleased — but to worship God as they pleased, and that is an important distinction.”

Historically, worshiping God has not been a partisan issue in the United States.  It was generally taught across this land that our nation was founded by those who sought freedom to worship as they chose and who built what we now call a Judeo-Christian heritage.

Mark David Hall of the Heritage Foundation wrote in 2011, “My contention is merely that orthodox Christianity had a very significant influence on America’s Founders and that this influence is often overlooked by students of the American Founding.”

Now, though, a simple search of the phrase “Judeo-Christian” will elicit multiple articles declaring that the phrase is meaningless and outdated.  As frustrating as that is, what’s more appalling is the Left’s desire to erode our country’s Judeo-Christian foundation and to minimize the influence of the Christian faith.

The Left’s assault of the Christian faith is three-pronged.  First, leftists seek to redefine what it means to be a Christian.  Next, they seek to silence Christian voices in the arena of public discussion.  Third, they want to elevate the ideas of non-Christians to change traditional thinking.  Hard to believe, but let’s look.

The Left wants to change the way culture sees Christianity.  We see it on several fronts.  The Left wants to divide the church about what is right and wrong.  The United Methodists are ready to split on the issue of same-sex “marriage.”  There’s a push among a small but loud faction of liberal voices that declare themselves “exvangelicals,” who resist the church’s stance of LGBT issues and abortion but want to retain and redefine what it means to be a Christian in 2019.

In redefining Christianity, they want to shift the emphasis from a changed life to doing what they define as societal good.  Presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) of South Bend, Ind. is attempting to put a new spin on the “old time religion.”  Kirsten Powers writes, “Does the country need an awakening of the Christian left? Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg thinks so.”  In Buttigieg’s understanding of the Christian faith, since Jesus never specifically mentioned abortion, we shouldn’t spend so much time on it.  In his view, most of Scripture points to “defending the poor, and the immigrant, and the stranger, and the prisoner, and the outcast, and those who are left behind by the way society works.”  Buttigieg, as a gay man, is a staunch supporter of LGBT rights and thinks the church’s view on them should change.  For Mayor Pete and those who think as he does, Christianity is about not transformed lives, but rather a social gospel and agenda.

As the left redefines what Christianity is, it also wants to shame and silence those who are Christians.  Curtis Wong, in a Huffington Post column, wrote, “New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees faced a barrage of criticism this week after appearing in a video promoting an event organized by an evangelical Christian group known for its anti-LGBTQ stance.”  Wong continued, “Brees partnered with Focus on the Family to promote ‘Bring Your Bible to School Day,’ now in its sixth year and slated for Oct. 3.  The athlete encouraged students to ‘share God’s love with friends’ in a 22-second video.”

The “barrage of criticism” Wong mentions was more like a hate-storm.  Newspaper columns, tweets, and blog posts blasted the Saints quarterback for speaking out for a Focus on the Family event that encouraged students to bring their Bibles to school.  That was it.  There was no hidden agenda, nothing about any other social issue.  Just bring your Bible to school.  The Left, though, has no tolerance for Focus on the Family, whom leftists describe, as Wong did, as “anti-LGBTQ.”  So anything Focus on the Family does is inherently evil, and those who work with or for it must be shamed and silenced.

When Focus on the Family’s president, Jim Daly, defended Brees, he rightly spoke of how the Left views any disagreement as hate.  Patheos, an atheist website, responded, “Daly treats his critics as people unable to handle a different opinion.  That’s a complete lie.  That’s a Christian lie.  A difference of opinions might accurately describe which baseball team will win the World Series or whether a movie is really as good as people say.  Whether or not LGBTQ people deserve civil rights is not about a difference of opinions.  Rejecting their humanity isn’t showing respect.”  It’s hard to see how opposing the attempted redefinition of marriage is denying anyone’s humanity, but that’s not the issue.  It’s about shaming and silencing those who think differently.

As they seek to redefine the Christian faith and silence those who hold to a traditional or historic view, they seek to minimize Christianity’s voice in the public arena.

On August 24, 2019, the Democratic National Committee passed a resolution that celebrates the role of non-Christians in the Democratic Party while attacking those who adhere to what the Bible teaches.

The Democrats and those on the Left believe that the number of those who classify themselves as having no faith is growing, and they seem to like it.  They also acknowledge that this is a group that overwhelmingly agrees with the Democrats’ beliefs on same-sex “marriage” and open borders.  The Democrats seem proud that their plan for America cannot be connected with traditional Christianity.  

The resolution also asserts, without supporting evidence, that the non-Christians have been subject to bias and exclusion in American society, especially in policymaking.  The intent of this part is not to address acts of bias against people.  There aren’t any.  It’s an attempt to unwind the Judeo-Christian heritage upon which this nation was built.  The Democrats of 2019 believe that America has had too much God, Christianity, and faith in her history.  The Democrats want to unravel that by emphasizing worldviews that do not put God at the center.

Remaking Christianity seems to be part of the Left’s plan to remake America.  Kind of sheds a new light on 2020.

Saturday Schadenfreude: Julian Castro's debate act costs him a third of his voters

I would add more Grunt Speak to the article below, but…

Julián Castro is El Dunno!“Here’s something we can agree with the Democratic Party base on: presidential candidate Julián Castro is loathsome.

According to Nate Silver’s outfit, FiveThirtyEight, Castro was the big loser of the third Democratic debate, based on his sneakily age-ist and downright dishonest attack on Joe Biden.

Castro lost big points on favorability and the willingness of even left-wing voters to vote for him, according to FiveThirtyEight:

So after Ipsos polled voters before and after the debate, we calculated the change in candidates’ net favorability (favorable rating minus unfavorable rating). O’Rourke may not have picked up many potential supporters, but he did improve his net favorability rating by more than 8 points with his debate performance. Castro, meanwhile, took the largest hit, dropping 6.7 points in net favorability, which could be related to his heated exchanges with Biden.

He lost nearly a third of his support, if you look at FiveThirtyEight’s fourth chart, with Castro at the bottom, the only one highlighted with red line, based on how badly he lost support compared to the others.  He went from an already miserable 19.7% favorable rating to an even more pathetic 13% favorable rating in just one night.  None of the others saw that kind of tumble.  Castro really turned off a lot of voters.

What’s more, Castro, in FiveThirtyEight’s third chart, is one of the candidates least likely to be Democratic voters’ second choice — pretty much every candidate is considered more of an option to Democrats than this guy.  There are a couple of tiny exceptions, such as Amy Klobuchar’s voters being more repelled by Bernie Sanders, and Biden’s supporters not being interested in Andrew Yang, but Castro overall is rock bottom, and he’s particularly hideous to Bernie’s supporters.  (It’s an interesting chart.)

All it took was one debate, and now even the Democrats, having gotten a good look at him, want no part of him.  We couldn’t stand him anyway.  Now even the Democratic voters have come onboard.

This is quite a fall.  Less than a year ago, FiveThirtyEight, which slants left but tries to be fair because of its focus on forecasting (which it still sometimes gets wrong), was hailing Castro as a guy who could win the Democratic nomination, based on his appeal to Latino and Millennial voters, along with a slice of what it calls “the left” (obviously, he lost the Bernie people, so somewhere along the line Castro offended them earlier).  He was less strong with black voters and a group they call Democratic “Party loyalists” — presumably nice Democrats you run into in places like rural New York or outback Texas — the much eclipsed Clinton-era-type moderate Democrats who quietly won much of the House in the last midterm.

It’s made Castro the one big loser out of the Democratic debate, done in by his attack on Biden’s age, which offended Democrats — certainly older Democrats, who, like Republicans, are a large bloc of voters — and probably a lot of others.  For me, the dishonesty of how he represented Biden’s remarks — aggressively misrepresenting Biden’s remarks and then calling him old and forgetful — even though everyone knew what Biden actually said, was just despicable.

Then, to make matters even worse, he lied about it.  Get a load:

CASTRO: “I wasn’t taking a shot at his age, I was taking a shot at the fact that he had just said the words ‘Buy-in,’ you would have to buy in. So I said, ‘Look, you just said that you would have to buy in.’ He said, ‘No, I didn’t.’ I said, ‘You know, I mean, did you forget that you just said that you would have to buy in?’”

REPORTER: “Yeah, right. ‘Did you just forget what we said two seconds ago?’”

CASTRO: “Right. So what I’m saying is, when you read the transcript and you understand the health care policy and the meaning of that, the significance of that, the difference is that 10 million people would get left out under his plan. That’s why that’s so important. It’s not an attack on Vice President Biden. It’s not something about personality. It’s about the health care policy. That was my focus.”

This is the same kind of lie his no-good twin brother Joaquin made when he first doxxed the Trump voters in his district (which included some of Julián’s) and then dishonestly claimed he had no intention of wishing them violence.  Nice business you have here…

This raises questions about why Castro was in the debate at all.  He’s clearly not ready for prime time, and now he’s mercifully scuppered his own hideous political career. He was in the bottom-of-the-barrel position at the end of the debate lineup, way over on the end, and that signals his support was already very low, possibly lower than the threshhold of qualification. Was he placed there as an affirmative action concession? To make the stage look diverse? I wouldn’t put it past the Democrats, who already have been caught rigging even this nomination process. 

It’s time to give this clown the hook, and cripes, keep him away from any public role whatsoever.”

ANOTHER ONE RIDES THE BUS!

America's Exclusive, Math-Challenged Party

The ameriKan Klass of the former DNC, the Bolsheviks. Just like a rock only DUMBER!

For many years at The Snooper Report, I have said nearly exactly what Clarice Feldman at American Thinker states or stated in the article below. However, I AM a Grunt, so my verbiage can be considered a little “off” to some…but that’s too damned bad.

Some would say or ask, “What’s a Grunt?”. Well…

The above IS what A Grunt is. The old saying, “Been there. Done that.”, IS “our” motto, politics be damned.

Anyway, the article and I quote…

Bolshevik New Green Deal math…

“Math is apparently very hard for Democrats, judging from the apparatchiks’ comments on who can run for office on their party’s ticket or contribute to that effort. This week, men and billionaires are out:

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s newly appointedexecutive director wants to cancel male political candidates. Lucinda Guinn, a former executive at pro-abortion fundraising giant EMILY’s List, was named executive director of the embattled Democratic elections organization. The news comes as a blow to male Democrats, as Guinn has indicated on social media that she does not want men to run for office.

In a February tweet, Guinn appeared to agree with another user’s proposal that “we shouldn’t let boys run for office anymore.” 

Even who is allowed to contribute to the DCCC is a cause for progressives to deny it funding. Apparently they want money to go to the DCCC only if poor people contribute to it: Richies get out!

Because billionaire donors contribute to the DCCC, progressives are also advised to stop giving to the DCCC:

Justice Democrats, the progressive group that backed Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), fundraised off the DCCC mayhem. Ocasio-Cortez has previously advised Democratic donors to stop giving money to the DCCC. Ocasio-Cortez’s anti-DCCC sentiment was echoed by the freshman representative’s senior counsel and policy adviser, Dan Riffle, who goes by “Every Billionaire Is A Policy Failure” on Twitter.

This week’s Dem follies were highlighted by what is laughingly called a “debate.” where in fact softball questions are tossed out by partisan moderators and the participants respond with well-rehearsed soundbites. This week on stage (three with boosters to appear taller) were those who made it through the DNC cull: Former Vice President Joe Biden; Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont; Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; Kamala Harris of California; Cory Booker of New Jersey; Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, businessman Andrew Yang, and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro.

I left it to others with more constitutional fortitude than I to watch this, but I can’t avoid believing that Beto’s call to confiscate by force “assault weapons” will cost the party, which in the nomination process has avoided this like the plague:

“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47,” O’Rourke said during Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate. “We’re not going to allow it to be used against our fellow Americans anymore.”

To accomplish this, O’Rourke has proposed a mandatory confiscation of these guns whereby individuals would be compensated for their firearms.

Beyond the thorny politics of this proposal, it raises clear legal and logistical questions, including whether a president has the authority to confiscate people’s guns.

The notion of the federal government going door to door to confiscate something like 8.5 to 15 million weapons, especially since the definition of “assault weapon” is so fluid and unclear, is both unconstitutional and politically and practically preposterous.

Though I suppose it’s no more ridiculous than Bernie Sanders’s promise to criminally prosecute fossil-fuel executives for “the destruction they have knowingly caused.” Some destruction. Affordable energy that makes our high standard of living possible.  As we are now the world’s leading producer essential fuel, we have minimized the power of Middle Eastern oil magnates to manipulate the West and bleed our economies dry. And the President in opening up the Arctic Reserve for drilling will see us in the catbird seat for a long, long time. 

The Washington Post, of course, sees this as a bad thing, emphasizing the “green” nonprofit groups’ opposition to this policy change. Of course, the “green” groups oppose this. They also claimed that the caribous would suffer when the first Arctic pipeline and drilling was proposed. (In fact, the caribou love the pipeline and have thrived alongside it.)

Reality: Thirty years later we can see the effects of the pipeline on the caribou. Walter Hickel, a former U.S. Secretary of the Interior and governor of Alaska, said that the caribou herd has not only survived, but flourished. In 1977, as the Prudhoe region started delivering oil to America’s southern 48 states, the Central Arctic caribou herd numbered 6,000; it has since grown to 27,128. Alaska’s Department of Fish and Game Web site reports that in general, caribou have not been adversely affected by human activities in Alaska. Pipelines and other manmade objects have been built to accommodate caribou movements, and the animals have adapted to people and machines.  

If you’re looking for Russian collusion you might start with a closer look at who is funding those groups that use lawfare, lobbyists, and publicity releases to gullible reporters and solons to hamper our energy development at every turn:  

It’s no secret that America’s energy boom — led by fracking and improved technologies such as horizontal drilling — pose a direct threat to Russia’s energy dominance across Europe. What is less known is the extent to which their influence is being spread to organizations here at home who share their anti-U.S. energy agenda. This is a concern for consumers not just for the potential impact on our economy and the cost and availability of energy, but also for the danger of American policies being dictated by foreign interests. Former NATO General Secretary [Anders Fogh Rasmussen] and even Hillary Clinton have conceded Russia’s backing of environmental activists in Europe to disrupt energy policies there, it’s hardly a stretch to see these efforts spreading to the U.S.

Last June, in a letter to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) connected the dots between Russian energy interests and funding to environmental groups such as Sierra Club, National Resources Defense Council, the League of Conservation Voters and Center for American Progress. These groups all received millions in donations to support their efforts against fracking and pipeline projects from an organization called the Sea Change Foundation, a secretive group run by a hedge fund manager with extensive ties to a law firm infested with Russian energy interests and ties to the Russian government.

According to tax records a report from the Daily Caller News Foundation last year, Sea Change has assets of $168 million, a startling amount for a group only 12 years old that provides absolutely no information about their activities on their one page website. Sea Change itself is funded by a shell company set up and now sharing office space with a law firm representing 20 companies with ties to Russian oligarchs or the government itself. The shell company, Klein Ltd., gave Sea Change $23 million in donations which it then spread, according to reports, to named U.S. environmental groups.

The reports connect the dots very well: a law firm representing Russian energy interests and government officials sets up a shell company that funds millions to the secretive Sea Change Foundation. Sea Change then makes millions in donations to U.S. environmental groups, who then claim they have no ties to Russia. 

Why would Russia have an interest in hampering U.S. energy production, someone not too smart might ask.

The motivation for Russian interference here is clear. As the congressional letter notes, American ingenuity in the oil and gas industry has significant geopolitical ramifications. Thanks to innovative extraction technologies such as hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, the U.S. now has access to vast reserves of oil and gas previously held to be unrecoverable. The unexpected energy resource bonanza has dramatically shifted the dynamics of the economic and geopolitical landscape in America’s favor. 

The U.S. is the top producer of natural gas in the world. In 2016, U.S. natural gas imports set a record low even though consumption has increased. In 3 of the first 5 months of 2017, U.S. natural gas exports were greater than imports — the growing trend points to the U.S. becoming a net exporter. This new commitment to natural gas means less expensive energy bills for consumers as well as economic, environmental, and national security benefits for the country as a whole. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates that the fracking boom has created 2.7 million jobs, with an estimated additional 3.5 million projected by 2035. 

From a foreign policy perspective, the U.S. can now export liquefied natural gas to parts of Europe that have been dependent on Putin’s government for their gas. This weakens Putin and puts the U.S. in a stronger position to exert influence. Up until now, periodic disputes with Russia have resulted in economic bullying tactics from Moscow that include wintertime threats to close pipelines supplying oil and natural gas. Those days may be over now that American natural gas development is poised to impact Russia and its Gazprom oil company. 

However, an international campaign known as “Keep It in the Ground” has been pushing an anti-fossil fuel agenda that advances Russia’s geopolitical interests at the expense of the U.S. and America’s allies. The campaign claims support from more than 400 organizations across the globe, with a sizable percentage operating inside the U.S. The campaign is opposed not just to the extraction of fossil fuels, but to any fossil fuel-related project including pipelines, rail transportation, refineries, and energy exploration.

While we’re discussing Russian interference with domestic energy production, is it too far to suggest that CNN in sponsoring these ridiculous “Democratic debates” is really a tool of the Russian effort to reelect the president?”

What Is Socialism?

Well, when one looks in a MODERN dictionary, one WILL find a plethora of “items” that defines socialism. When you look into Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary, one WILL find…N.O.T.H.I.N.G.! So, what does that mean? Well, IF you like The Snooper Report, you can do a search on our engine but I have already done that for you. There are 1,432 articles on “socialism”, the VARIOUS definitions of “it”, which in essence, is a morphism of: socialism; fascism; national socialism (NAZI Party); globalism; jihadism(s); and a few other lesser “isms” and in the end, when ALL the monies are eviscerated from their populations, it turns automatically INTO COMMUNISM. So, from 1828 until 2019, socialism came into view. Imagine that?

So, even though “some” are thinking the Nordic States (which really aren’t REAL socialism) and not the rest of the FAILED Nation States that STARTED as a socialist State but went Communist in the end, socialism is in fact socialism with the morphed innuendos mentioned above.

Now the article and I quote…

the ameriKan communist/socialist/jihadi MORON SandersMany, like us, are appalled that some politicians now openly advocate the failed system of socialism, while they and others try to deny the obvious fact that free enterprise has enriched the lives of billions of people. One is tempted to chalk such opinions up to an abysmal ignorance of history.

But something else is going on, too. The meaning of “socialism” has evolved; or, one might say, it is flying under a false flag. When Democratic politicians advocate socialism, they don’t talk about North Korea, Soviet Russia, Albania, Cuba (anymore) or Venezuela (anymore). Rather, they talk about Sweden, Denmark and Norway–countries that are not, in fact, socialist. One might conclude that they just want a slightly larger welfare state–accompanied, although they never say this, by a less progressive tax system and often more business-friendly policies.

Americas Majority Foundation has done some interesting polling on how Americans view socialism, as well as free market capitalism. Their report is embedded below; I recommend reading it in its entirety. Here are a few highlights:

We surveyed voters how they view the terms Socialism and Capitalism. On socialism, we asked “When you hear or read the term ‘socialism’, do you think of Scandinavian Social Democracies like Denmark and Sweden OR Venezuela, North Korea and the Former Soviet Union?” On Capitalism, we asked, “When you hear or read the phrase ‘free market capitalism’ do you think…It is an economic system that allows people to pursue their passions and create their own careers and businesses or do you think It is an economic system where those at the top benefit at the expense of the rest?”

That, I think, is a good way of posing the questions.

At the Top Line, 52% of all respondents associate “Socialism” with “Denmark/Sweden.” Simultaneously, 52% relate “Free Market Capitalism” to “pursue their passions.”

So there are a considerable number of voters who, in this sense, approve of both socialism and capitalism.

When we studied 18-65-year-olds, we found that overall voters view socialism closer to Nordic countries as opposed to Venezuela by 52% to 48%. 67% of Democrats viewed socialism as similar to a Nordic country compared to 38% of Republicans. 51% of Independents view socialism similarly to Nordic countries compared to 49% who viewed socialism as a worst-case disaster.

So the ships are largely passing in the night. When Bernie Sanders et al. say they want socialism, we think they mean Venezuela, while a large majority of Democrats think they mean Denmark. The problem is that the Democrats’ policies are far closer to those of Venezuela than to those of Scandinavia.

Free enterprise, the greatest engine in history for improvement of the human condition, is depressingly controversial.

Overall 52% of voters view free markets as benefiting the rich while 48% of voters viewed free market as allowing individuals to allow to pursue their dream. As you would suspect, 64% of Democrats view free market benefitting the wealthy while 69% of Republicans view free markets as a liberating force that allows them to pursue their dream. 51% of Independents agree with Democrats that free markets benefit the top 1% and 49% agree with Republicans on the benefit of the free markets in pursuing their dreams.

For what it’s worth, 18 to 34 year old voters are among the most likely to be pro-free enterprise by this measure.

There is a great deal more, including some commentary and conclusions, in the embedded document, but for now I will add one more data point. What ethnic group do you think is most likely to associate socialism with Venezuela? Not whites or Asians, but Hispanics–probably because they are more aware of the Venezuelan catastrophe than the average American. This suggests a fruitful avenue for Republican candidates to appeal to Hispanic voters in 2020.

Read the ENTIRE document…thanks.

How the great truth dawned

First one MUST read THIS POST and then THIS POST before you read the items in the article below…thanks.

JUST KIDDING!Professor Gary Saul Morson’s essay “How the great truth dawned” leads off the September issue of The New Criterion. It’s not terribly long, but it must be the longest article ever published by the magazine, and you can easily see why. It is brilliant and moving. Beginning and ending with Solzhenitsyn, it takes up the Gulag, Communism, mass murder, Russian literature, the turn to God and much more. I want to recommend it to your attention in case you might find it of interest. This is a great essay.

Quotable quote (almost completely arbitrary) : “The great truth dawned: unexpectedly, astonishingly, this harrowing story of cattle cars and the secret brand has a redemptive ending. A person—not a hero, just a flawed person—finds faith. Everybody has been indoctrinated with the slogan that, in a material world where nothing beyond the laws of nature exists, ‘The result is all that counts.’ But camp experience taught that that was a lie. ‘It is not the result that counts … but the spirit!‘ Once you realize this, ‘then imprisonment begins to transform your character in an astonishing way.’ You begin to appreciate friendship differently. Recognizing your own weakness, you understand the weakness of others. When another prisoner relates how he became a Christian, Solzhenitsyn recognizes that when he had been most certain he was doing good he was actually doing evil. He understands ‘the truths of all the religions of the world: They struggle with the evil inside a human being (every human being).’”
