US Intelligence Report

So the best the intelligence community can come up with is that Russia’s media, like RT, tried to influence the American people against Hillary, to try to influence voters to pick her opponent.

And, didn’t we just experience an onslaught of American media aligned against one candidate, for another? Like, against Trump and for Hillary? Thought so.

Am thinking, wasn’t the Obama administration’s overt attempt to unseat Netanyahu in his re-election campaign much worse?

Bottom line, sore losers in search of an excuse for losing. Twice. Refusing to accept responsibility is a sign of immaturity.

A Party In Shambles

Starting with this part of President Obama’s legacy . . .

Beginning in 2017, Republicans will hold 33 governorships and fully control legislatures in 25 states, as well as the Congress and presidency. During Obama’s two terms in office, the party lost more than 1,000 seats at the state and national level.

“I love President Obama, but he and his administration allowed for the deterioration, the terrible deterioration, of the state parties over the last eight years,” said Mark Brewer, who led the Michigan Democratic Party for 18 years.

The job at hand now is to pick a new leader for the Democratic National Committee. You will remember that Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz stepped down after being caught tipping the scale in favor of Hillary over Bernie, and Donna (CNN debate cheat) Brazile took over temporarily, until a permanent Chair could be found.

You have to look for news about the party because their media isn’t talking about it. Too busy hyping ‘the resistance’ to President-elect Trump.

Most people know that Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn) wants the to be DNC Chair. But most people don’t know that he isn’t the only one “running” for the position to lead the Democrat Party. There are six. Besides Ellison, former Vermont governor and DNC chair Howard Dean, South Carolina Democratic Party chair Jaime Harrison have formally declared their candidacies; NARAL Pro-Choice America chair Ilyse Hogue is interested, as is New Hampshire Democratic Party chair Ray Buckley, and Labor Secretary Tom Perez.

Also missing in the media is the feeling among democrats that the candidates should debate, in public, for the position. But this would be counterproductive to the feeling among establishment democrats that Ellison is the one. Like Hillary Clinton was supposed to be ‘the one.’

Aside from there being nothing going on in the media about a successor for Donna Brazile, there’s really nothing going on from those six wannabes over what President Obama did to Israel at the United Nations. They’re not saying, and the media is not asking. The leaderless party seems to be emulating Hillary Clinton’s campaign, avoid press conference and stay home.

Liberal “Update”

If you think the last few years have been bad, and the recent election might have caused a bit of political self-reflection, you’d be wrong.

Look what Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s senior advisor and Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer, said this morning.

The plan is perpetual denial, as if elections don’t have consequences when they lose.  Apparently, it’s only when they win.

Despite the fact that Trump has already entertained the wackos on the Left for their input since the presidential election, DNC Chair Donna Brazile starts the false claim that they are excluded.

Translation: Because we lost, you have to give us what we want anyway. That’s what they call “reaching out.” Seems to me that since they lost, they’re the ones who need to do the reaching. Maybe even getting acquainted with the American people again and the things that they want?

Hillary’s Email? It Ain’t Over

No. It’s not over for Hillary and her email handling. And that’s a good thing.

In a new legal development on the controversy over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails, an appeals court on Tuesday reversed a lower court ruling and said two U.S. government agencies should have done more to recover the emails.

Sooner or later, she needs to put her hand on the bible and speak under oath. The same as would happen for anyone else who mishandled national security details.

Equal justice under the law is what this country is all about. Letting one go while prosecuting others?  “That’s not who we are.”  Right Hillary?

Trump Nukes Media

The way the media is reacting to Pres-elect Trump’s reaction of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s stated goal for the coming year is something that could qualify for the M.R.I.O.T.D. award. Putin said he wants to make it a chief military objective to strengthen Russia’s nuclear capabilities.

So when Trump Tweets . . .

. . . he is basically stating his peace through strength agenda and rebuilding of the military that he’s been talking about for the last year and a half.

The media doesn’t know how to deal with someone who pretty much is his own media and speaks directly to the people, by-passing them and their bias. This has the media and jumping up and down with accusing Trump of causing “a sharp shift in U.S. national security policy. President Barack Obama has made nuclear nonproliferation a centerpiece of his agenda.” There’s the award-winning statement. Most ridiculous because it was President Obama who sanctioned real nuclear proliferation. Not only that, but for the world’s biggest State sponsor of terrorism, Iran. Not to mention the nutjob in North Korea who is already threatening to lob a nuke our way.

To the media, nuclear nonproliferation doesn’t mean not spawning nuclear capabilities to other countries. To them, and Obama, it means what we should let our own capabilities rot on the vine. There’s no outrage for the handing nuclear capabilities to Iran, with Russia’s support by the way. There’s no outrage at Putin’s goal to strengthen their nuclear capabilities, including developing a way to get past defensive shields.

What Trump did was call out Putin in terms of, you really don’t want to go there. But if you do, we’ll beat you just like the last time. The last time is when President Reagan hastened the end of the Soviet Union when they couldn’t keep up with the U.S. nuclear and defense posture. It drove them to bankruptcy. Russia’s economy is not in any shape to compete with what we could do if we wanted to.  It is all predicated on nuclear powers coming to their senses, “until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.”

The political Left simply can not deal with the notion of peace through strength. The reason to have the best is so we won’t have to use them. The strength is the deterrence. But in their world, they believe that the world would be safer if we were weaker. The media still doesn’t understand why Trump won.

Dept of Energy Embeds

One of the things people don’t like about Washington, and the Obama administration, is the way that political operatives are embedded into every agency of the Executive Branch.  So much so that the phrase “drain the swamp,” made popular by candidate Trump, now Pres.-elect Trump, was widely accepted by voters in November.

The politicization of the Dept. of Energy is in the news now. The Dept. of Justice is another, but that’s for another time.

Lately, the Obama administration fired a top scientist and intimidated staff at the Department of Energy in order to further its climate change agenda.

A top DoE scientist who liaised with Congress on the matter was fired by the Obama administration for being too forthright with lawmakers, according to the report, which provides an in-depth look at the White House’s efforts to ensure senior staffers toe the administration’s line.

So it’s no surprise that the Obama administration stiffed the incoming transition team’s request for names in the DoE who have been working in the area of Climate Change. Not only that, but Democrats are pushing back for them even wanting to know. The epitome of politicization of an agency. They claim it is over-reaching. I think it is important to know who is involved so the new administration can learn what it is they have to say on the subject. Regardless, it won’t take long for the new administration to find out who they are and what they know. Sooner or later, the swamp will be drained of the political embeds poised to fight against the administration.

Like Obama once said. Elections have consequences.

It’s Official, Trump Won, Again

Final electors tally, Trump 304, Clinton 227.

Contrary to the wishes and expectations of the wacko Left and their media, Clinton had more defectors than Trump. Trump lost 2, Hillary lost 5.

That makes Hillary a confirmed three-time loser.
  1. Jun. 2008
  2. Nov. 2016
  3. and Dec 2016
The biggest not-published news story today, and since the election Nov 8, is the voter intimidation and death threats perpetrated by the Clinton campaign and her supporters directed at the electors of the Electoral College. Not one statement by Hillary to accept the results and to stop tearing at the constitutional electoral process. You know, like she said two months ago when she was speaking about Donald Trump.

Texas Elector, A Fraud
