What They’re Doing to Jim Jordan is a Disgrace


{ } ~ Was there a meeting of the minds on some island off the east coast of the U.S. at some point over the last couple of months?… A meeting where the elitist leaders of the dummycrats-Democratic Party and all the constituent parts, including the major networks and newspapers ran through a list of the most dangerous Republicans in Washington…and what should be done about them? If so, what were the names on that list? Mark Meadows? Devin Nunes? If there is such a list, can there be any doubt about Jim Jordan’s inclusion on it? Now we’re not much for grand conspiracy theories, but it is just a little too pat for this to be happening right now. Jordan has emerged as one of the fiercest critics of the Deep State investigation into “Trump/Russia” to sit in Congress. Together with Meadows and Nunes and a handful of others, he has put Rod Rosenstein and the Justice Department back on its collective heels with his pitbull-like intensity and his unwillingness to look the other way when he sees clear, obvious evidence of malfeasance. Jordan is a patriot and a defender of the Constitution. At a time when Trump’s enemies are coming ever closer to having their illegal charade exposed for all the world to see, can it really be a coincidence that Jordan suddenly finds himself accused of these nonsense allegations? Sometimes a coincidence is just a coincidence. But when the conspiracy is easier to believe than the coincidence…well, you have to consider the possibilities. And one possibility is that the media in this country is, at the very least, giving undue attention and credence to the suggestion that Jordan, as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University, knew about and helped coverup the sexual abuses of the resident sports doctor three decades ago. All we have are accusations, many of which are being made by former students who have a history of deception and outright crime. These accusations are not based on any firsthand, certain knowledge of “what Jordan knew.” They are of the, “Oh he had to know” variety. The BS variety. If Jordan turns around and sues these media outlets for besmirching his reputation, he would not be in the wrong…


San Fran Begins Registering Illegal Aliens with Kids to Vote, Discriminates Against Childless Illegals

by Craig Bannister

{ } ~ San Francisco has become the first city in California to allow illegal aliens to vote – but… the city still bans voter registration by illegal aliens who do not have children. The privileged group of illegal aliens will be eligible to vote in the November local elections, ABC 7 news reports: “Monday the Department of Elections Issued Voter Registration Forms for non-citizens who are eligible to vote for members of the San Francisco Board of Education in the November 6th 2018 election. The measure passed in 2016 with a close vote of 54 percent to 46 percent following two failed previous attempts.” “San Francisco is the first city in the state to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections.” “This November will be the first election in which non-citizens can register to vote.” This is illegal, where is Session on this.


The Terrorist Semi-States of Hamas and Hizballah

by Yaakov Lappin

{ } ~ The terrorist threat Israel faces is an unusual one: the terrorist organizations seeking to destroy it control their own territory, making them a kind of semi-state… The armed, fundamentalist entities situated on Israel’s borders have control over their own land, and they govern populations. This creates an inherent contradiction between their hardline Islamist ideologies on the one hand, and their self-preservation interests on the other. This paradox is playing out most visibly in the Gaza Strip. Hamas is trying to relieve the security blockade over its enclave, using a range of violent pressure tactics to achieve this goal, as it tries to avoid an economic meltdown in Gaza. Yet it is unwilling to stop enlarging its arsenal of offensive weapons that it points at Israel, meaning that Gaza’s economy remains dysfunctional…


House dummycrats-Democrats vote ‘present’ on resolution supporting ICE

by Susan Ferrechio

{ } ~ Most House dummycrats-Democrats voted “present” Tuesday on a resolution aimed at forcing them to clarify whether they support U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement… after some dummycrats- Democrats have criticized the agency’s role in enforcing U.S. immigration laws. The House passed a nonbinding resolution saying lawmakers support the “officers and personnel who carry out the important mission of the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement.” A two-thirds majority was needed to pass it, and because dummycrats-Democrats voted “present” instead of “no,” it passed easily in a 244-35 vote. The final vote saw just 18 dummycrats-Democrats vote for the resolution, and 34 dummycrats-Democrats vote against it. But the vast majority of dummycrats-Democrats, 133, voted “present.”…


Mr. President, Declassify Documents on Russia Collusion Now


{ } ~ Now that FBI agent Peter Strzok has appeared before the Congress and told us nothing that we did not know… it is time for President Donald Trump to act. Strzok looked like a cocky crook testifying to Congress about a failed con job. His appearance was utterly astounding. He actually smirked at the assembled elected officials of government. He smirked from morning until late in the afternoon when the Congress finally adjourned, though admittedly by late in the afternoon the wind was pretty much out of his sails, and his smiling face most assuredly ached. He looked deflated, and if he was eager for anything it was for the exit and the arms of his FBI paramour Lisa Page. His demeanor was not that of a stalwart FBI agent appearing before the Congress of the United States to inform the citizenry, but like that of John Gotti or one of the other hoods whom a better generation of FBI agents than Strzok’s once put behind bars. At some point in the near future a reflective Congress might — in a bipartisan moment — investigate how the FBI became a tool of elitist interests in our nation’s capital. Then too the Congress could offer suggestions as to what can be done to repair the damage. For federal law enforcement to become so flagrantly political is genuinely alarming. I think President Trump has subtly brought the left and the right in this country together, at least on one point. The time has come for the citizenry to see all the documents held by the government in the so-called Russian collusion scandal. Was there collusion? Who was involved? The President has it in his power to declassify the documents. Use your faithful weapon, Mr. President, your trusty black felt pen. Sign the declassifying order now…


San Francisco’s Rank Number Two

by Thomas Gallatin: San Francisco — who would want to live in that feces hole? (Donald Trump allegedly had another word for such places.) That sentiment quite literally is a problem that the city’s newly elected dummycrat-Democrat Mayor London Breed is facing. You see, San Francisco has an excrement problem — an excrement problem directly linked to its massive population of homeless people. Some 7,500 vagrants are currently living (and doing their business) on the city’s streets. Breed recognizes the stinky problem, stating, “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here. That’s a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.” Well, at least admitting there’s a problem is a start.

Breed added, “About 70% of the people estimated to be homeless in San Francisco were actually housed in San Francisco before they became homeless. We have to make sure people who live here, [and] sadly, people who are homeless here, that they are also held accountable for taking care of our streets.” So how does the mayor propose to hold these homeless folks accountable?

Throwing money at the problem hasn’t helped. Last year alone San Francisco spent$275 million on supportive housing for the homeless. That was up from $241 million the year before, and this year the city is projected to spend upwards of $280 million.

Well, being the dummycrat-Democrat that she is, it appears that Breed’s instinct is to shift responsibility away from the homeless and onto those working with the homeless. Breed said, “I work hard to make sure your programs are funded for the purposes of trying to get these individuals help, and what I am asking you to do is work with your clients and ask them to at least have respect for the community — at least clean up after themselves and show respect to one another and people in the neighborhood.”

The root of San Francisco’s mess can be tied directly to decades of dummycrat-Democrats enacting their leftist policies. San Francisco has the highest rent in the world, coming in at an average of $3,500 a month. The median home price is a whopping $1.5 million, an amount that only 12% of residents can afford.

And the biggest contributor to this obscenely high cost of living is onerous laws. Columnist Rachel Alexander reports, “Zoning regulations and building codes have increased the cost of housing. Height restrictions waste valuable space. In much of the city, it is illegal to build anything taller than 40 feet. One resident built a ‘pod’ in his friend’s living room in order to obtain affordable rent, but the city found out and made him move out. Due to the high cost of living, a family making $117,400 annually is considered ‘low income.‘ A family making $73,300 is ‘very low income.’ The minimum wage is $15 an hour, but it’s not enough to rent a two-bedroom apartment. In order to live comfortably in San Francisco, an annual salary must be at least $110,000.”

Exorbitantly high cost of living and yet the city is increasingly becoming a slum. No wonder residents are leaving the city in droves. No U.S. city lost more residents in the last quarter of 2017 than did San Francisco. Here is yet another sad example of a long-time dummycrat-Democrat-controlled city whose residents are suffering — and smelling — the consequences.
