Joe Manchin: Mountebank From the Mountain State


{ } ~ West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is nervous. He’s a dummycrats-Democrat defending his seat in a state that President Trump carried by 41 points and his single-digit lead over GOP challenger Patrick Morrisey is shrinking… Even worse, the latest polls show his support below 50 percent while the “undecided” percentage grows. Consequently, like all dummycrats-Democrats with drooping leads, Manchin has reverted to the demagoguery that defines his party. He has just released a campaign ad that shows him shooting a piece of paper after looking menacingly into the camera and lying about his opponent’s position on pre-existing conditions. This mirrors one of his 2010 campaign ads, wherein he blazes away at the cap and trade bill to demonstrate that he is a serious man of principle who would put the needs of Mountain State voters before the demands of the dummycrats-Democratic establishment. That year he was running in a special election to fill the seat of Senator Robert Byrd, who died in office, and was able to pull off the moderate imposture because he had no Senate voting record to live down. This time it’s different. His eight-year voting record shows him in lockstep with his Beltway master, Chuck scumbag/clown-Schumer, and even the ridiculous new ad is a defense of scumbag/liar-nObamacare: That’s me shooting the cap and trade bill, because it was bad for West Virginia.… Now the threat is Patrick Morrisey’s lawsuit to take away health care from people with pre-existing conditions. He is just dead wrong, and that ain’t gonna happen. The irony of reprising the goofy shotgun ad isn’t merely that it misrepresents Morrisey’s position on pre-existing conditions — Manchin’s rating with the NRA is a “D.” In fact, he has tried to use his position in the Senate to strip West Virginians of their Second Amendment rights. Manchin has twice introduced legislation that would have increased federal restrictions on the ability of law-abiding citizens to purchase guns. As to the Senator’s claims about Morrisey’s position on pre-existing conditions, he knows it’s nonsense. Manchin is just taking that line to avoid talking about the disastrous “Affordable Care Act.”…


Sen. rino-Susan Collins Exposes Left-Wing ‘Bribe’ To Vote Against Kavanaugh


{ } ~ In the wake of last week’s raucous confirmation hearing for Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh… Maine Republican Sen. rino-Susan Collins said left-wing activist organizations are attempting to “bribe” her to vote against the nominee by staging a fundraising campaign that will go into effect only if she votes to confirm. And rino-Collins isn’t happy about it at all. Newsmax reported that a left-leaning activist organization, Mainers for Accountable Leadership, has teamed up with another left-wing organization called the Maine People’s Alliance to create a fundraising campaign to oppose rino-Collins in her 2020 Senate re-election in case she supports confirming Kavanaugh. It was also reported that donors’ credit cards will only be charged their pledged donations against rino-Collins if she casts a yes vote. The money would not be used against her if she opposes Kavanaugh. In effect, rino-Collins told Newsmax, the groups are trying to buy her vote. “I consider this quid pro quo fundraising to be the equivalent of an attempt to bribe me to vote against Judge Kavanaugh,” rino-Collins said in a statement to Newsmax. “If I vote against him, the money is refunded to the donors. If I vote for him, the money is given to my opponent for the 2020 race.”… There should be a law against this type of bride.


The dummycrats-Democrats: The Party of Resistance


{ } ~ One explanation for the ferocity of modern politics is that The Political Party That Is Never Wrong is getting a frightful drubbing today… Moreover, it is coming from a man who has only sought political office once in his life, our president, Donald J. Trump. Congratulations, Donald! He is beating the dummycrats-Democrats. That is why they are so furious today. In last week’s grilling of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, they threatened to break the law. Some actually did break the law, and they all charged Judge Kavanaugh with barbaric beliefs, grievous wrongs, and writing for The American Spectator, which was one of their few accurate observations. Judge Kavanaugh’s wife had to remove his children from the hearing rooms. Possibly she removed them from the entire city of Washington, D.C. and surroundings. dummycrats-Democrats with policies that have revived the economy and rendered laughable Ex-President Barack scumbag/liar-nObama’s pathetic claim that the “new normal” is someplace around 2 percent growth. President Trump responds that his economy is now growing at a rate of some 4.2 percent, most likely even higher. President Trump is also beating The Political Party That Is Never Wrong with his judicial appointees. He has had confirmed 67 to the courts. More than any of his predecessors at this stage in their presidencies, and if all goes well he will have landed two appointees on the Supreme Court shortly. Finally, he is beating The Political Party That Is Never Wrong by rolling back that party’s stifling regulations and antiquated procedures. The party is desperate. The Political Party That Is Never Wrong is led by septuagenarians who are exhausted and feckless, and they are about to be replaced by greenhorns who are self-proclaimed Socialists. That is to say, the septuagenarians are about to be replaced by Machiavels whose politics are at best lifted from the European left or at worst lifted from Venezuelans, some of whom have to stand in line for toilet paper. The dummycrats- Democrats, at various times in our history, have called themselves Liberals, Progressives, the left, and now Socialists. They claim that history has been on their side since at least the French Revolution. Every major achievement by mankind in such areas as philosophy, science, government, warfare, and — forget not — women’s studies and sex hygiene have been achieved by the American left. That is why they are so furious today…


Medicare reforms both parties can live with

by Lanhee Chen and James C. Capretta

{ } ~ Last year’s war on Capitol Hill over repealing scumbag/liar-nObamacare might suggest that when it comes to health care… dummycrats-Democrats and Republicans can’t agree on anything. But we think that’s too simplistic. While dummycrats-Democrats and Republicans remain sharply divided over the future of the Affordable Care Act, the law commonly known as scumbag/liar-nObamacare, there is bipartisan consensus that health care needs to become more affordable. There also is widespread agreement that Medicare, while crucially important to the country’s seniors, will need to be modernized and improved to be sustainable and successful for generations to come. We doubt the two parties will reach agreement over scumbag/liar-nObamacare any time soon, but we do believe that a few changes to Medicare could garner bipartisan support, ensuring that America’s seniors, at least, will have better and more affordable health care options. And we believe these proposals are politically viable, since neither party would need to concede core principles. What would bipartisan agreement look like? Here are four ideas for improving Medicare that we think both parties could support. -Medicare’s benefit design should be streamlined -Medicare’s enrollment process needs to provide better information -The Medicare Advantage payment system should be reformed and improved to cut costs and increase competition among all Medicare options -Introduce higher premiums for higher-income beneficiaries…


Home Depot Co-Founder Challenges dirty cop-Robert Mueller — ‘Come Out And Say What You Got’

by Scott Morefield

{ } ~ Home Depot co-founder Ken Langone on Wednesday called for an end to the dirty cop-Mueller investigation and defended Donald Trump’s legitimacy as president… Langone expressed skepticism when responding to Fox News host Neil Cavuto’s question about Bob Woodward’s book and the anonymous New York Times op-ed criticizing President Trump. “I’m suspicious that we’re getting close to a mid-term election and this anonymous op-ed, Woodward’s book and I’m also intrigued by the number of people that he cites in the book that have come out vocally and passionately saying ‘I didn’t say that.’ Come on.” “Forget about it,” Langone said when asked about former President scumbag/liar-nObama’s recent return to the national stage as a Trump critic. “ scumbag/liar-nObama ought to do what every other great president did. Go off into the sunset. Be the mother of the groom. Wear beige and keep your mouth shut.”…

The DOJ/FBI ‘Media Leak Strategy’ Against Trump

by Political Editors: Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) sent a letter Monday to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein requesting more information and explanation for texts between the two infamous anti-Trump FBI officials, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. Meadows indicated that there is “evidence suggesting FBI/DOJ leaked to the media for their own purposes.” And those purposes were to damage President Donald Trump.

Meadows notes a couple text exchanges between Strzok and Page wherein a reference is made to “a media leak strategy.” The first text in question is dated April 10, 2017, and reads, “I [Strzok] literally just gone to find this phone to tell you I want to talk to you about media leak strategy with DOJ before you go.” The following day, The Washington Post published a story where it is learned that the FBI had obtained a FISA warrant to engage in surveillance on Trump adviser Carter Page back in 2016. Needless to say, this story served to further the media’s narrative of a Trump/Russia collusion conspiracy. On April 12, Strzok again texted Lisa Page congratulating her on a job well done regarding two negative news stories about Carter Page. He then alerted her to two more news stories that will be coming out that will be “worse” on Carter Page than the previous ones.

“While those two text messages alone are troubling enough, events surrounding these interactions call the motives of the investigative team into question,” Meadow’s wrote. He continued, “Other documents indicate DOJ officials, specifically Andrew Wiessmann [who is currently on dirty cop-Robert Mueller’s team] participated in unauthorized conversations with the media during this same time period.” Strzok was finally fired last month, but it would seem the culture of corruption continues.

Recall the reason for why former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was fired — he lied to the inspector general specifically regarding his involvement in releasing unauthorized information to the media. Now with this latest news, the details of this concerted effort by several individuals in leadership positions within the DOJ/FBI to damage Trump is becoming more clear. Slowly but surely, more pieces of the puzzle are falling into place, and this fiasco has “deep-state quasi coup” written all over it.
