What a surprise, leftist press and liberal politicians came unglued when supposedly a two year old girl was separated from her Mother.
Problem it never happened.

Is now being reported woman previously deported from the US in 2013.
Evidently took off leaving her Husband and two other children in Honduras.

Husband “Denis, who works as a captain at a port on the coast of Puerto Cortes, explained that things back home were fine but not great, and that his wife was seeking political asylum.

He said that Sandra set out on the 1,800-mile journey with the baby girl on June 3, at 6am, and he has not heard from her since.

‘I never got the chance to say goodbye to my daughter and now all I can do is wait’ … ”

But as has been seen repeatedly liberal media does not need facts or truth to come up with a story.

SF oh June 23, 2018 at 9:21 AM

This whole thing reminds me of an old cartoon: I think it was Daria. Anyway, one of the characters in the cartoon says she’s going to be an animal activist. Then she adds, “but only for the cute ones..”. That’s exactly what’s happening here and, once again, these crazy liberals can’t see that they’re being manipulated by the Dems for political gain. By watching the news, it appears that every person crossing the border is two-years old and incredibly adorable. So -like the cartoon character – the gullible Libs get involved to help the cute ones. If photos of elderly, or disabled people, or big scary guys with tattoos all over them, hit the news outlets – I doubt that there would be crying Liberals, welcoming them at the border. But Libs don’t question anything they’re told. It would never occur to them that they’re being manipulated for political gain. It doesn’t cross their minds that there are thousands of others – who are not adorable two-year olds – flooding in here too. It doesn’t cross their minds that we have poverty and homelessness right here right now – and the last thing we need are more impoverished, unskilled people to take care of. It doesn’t cross their minds that Kamala Harris, et al, appear at the border for a photo op and campaign appearance- then she jumps back into a private jet to get the hell outta there and back to her comfy mansion —- all at taxpayers’ expense. No, the Libs just want to be activists and help them ….. but only the cute ones.

Liberals leave the hard work to others, so they don’t have to take responsibility for the disasters. It leaves them free to protest when things aren’t going their way, and behave like a lynch mob at the drop of a hat. They support scofflaws and lawbreakers because in their version of “social justice” the group is governed by mob rule.

Liberals are either oblivious to the facts in the decisions the Trump administration has made with regard to illegal immigrants and their children or just choose to ignore them. For example, many children arrive at the border unaccompanied by adults; illegal aliens undertake a perilous journey with innocent children in tow putting them at risk from the elements, human trafficking, rape, and murder; illegal aliens know they stand a better chance of getting into the country when there is a child along with them; the policy of separating children from their parents who cross illegally began during the Clinton administration and was enforced during Obama’s term in office, both Democrats; those entering illegally know they have to profess to being persecuted in their home country (preferably religiously), and that they are seeking asylum; it is well known among those entering illegally, a mantra, in fact, that you must say these things whether or not they are true.

Funny how liberals with nothing better to contribute come out of the woodwork to protest when conservatives try to find solutions to problems liberals created. They had nothing to say about it when Clinton and Obama were in office. Suddenly, they become the conscience of the nation? I don’t think so. They have an abysmal track recird.

Protesters Descend On Kirstjen Neilsens Home

After harassing Kirsten Neilsen while she was at dinner in a Mexican restaurant recently, a small group of protestors upped the ante by descending on her home with bullhorns and calling her “… a modern-day Nazi.”

Conservatives love to blame liberals for everything wrong and take credit for everything right.
Any fool can see the hypocrisy of these people. They are Rush Limbaugh puppets.

Aspirin – you mean, like the idiot dimmocrats were doing for the previous 8 years when obozo was in office?

Facts are pesky things for you whiny loser liberals.

And yes, the “whiny” term is for you and randy – I know how much you like it and it fits so well.

Go back to “playing doctor” or “teaching machine guns” in San Ramon. You’re clueless.

Aspirin June 26, 2018 at 9:12 AM

Fred P: “you mean, like the idiot dimmocrats were doing for the previous 8 years when obozo was in office?”

“Obozo” saved us from the Bush economy and paved the road to prosperity which Trump gladly used when he took office.

Lena June 28, 2018 at 11:57 PM

Aspirin, it might surprise you to know that I don’t watch Rush Limbaugh, I never have and I likely never will. The matters under discussion here are obvious to everyone but liberals. The policies of the nation with regard to immigration are not working and President Trump is trying to find solutions. What have Democrat leaders done to help solve these problems? Mainly a lot of hand wringing from what I can tell.

I am just like wow this, is a broken heart for a, lit of people what trumpet just did to sign the EO just to separate parents and children and putting families in jail at a, government camp. This is very cruel. Trump thunk he a hero. He is, a complete zero. A monster just wanting to have power and control. Who know when this gonna reunite all we can do is just wait.

In just 2 days after the ugly EO They are already talking building more camps especially at the neval weapon station.

Chicken Little June 22, 2018 at 9:58 PM

So, what solution do you propose? That we just make all the illegal immigrant parents promise to appear in court, then send them on their merry way, with kids in tow? How many of them do you think we’d ever see again?

They need to be detained. Even the ones who claim to be seeking asylum, while their cases are decided. If you want them to be together with their kids, they have to be together in detention. And, contrary to what you seem to think, detainees are NOT being beaten, tortured, or mistreated in any way. They’re clean, well-fed, and entertained. It’s not at all like a jail.

Fred P. June 22, 2018 at 10:04 PM

Wow, concordjet…. you might wanna lay off the pills or alcohol…. can’t understand a thing you’re saying…

Elwood June 22, 2018 at 11:25 PM

One word: Xanax

Miller June 23, 2018 at 12:03 AM

The supreme court says you can’t hold a minor pending deportation over 20 days. Trump wants to “keep families together” by having the DOJ get a a court exception to that law.

Obama already held children over 20 days back in 2015 and the courts made him release them. Trump’s DOJ isn’t going to be successful fighting the same exact case 3 years later.

Trump can’t do anything without congress, so “what do you propose” to fix Trump’s screw up? The easy fix is hitting a big “undo” button and returning to catch-and-release. There’s no other solution if DOJ loses a case that was already lost 3 years ago.

It’s checkmate without congress, so all Trump can do is order a ridiculous amount ot GPS ankle bracelets so he can say it’s ‘house arrest’, not “release”. Oh wait, Obama already did the ankle monitor thing. So I guess Trump just needs a new trendy name for Catch and Release that appeals to his gullible base, and call it quits.

The obvious solution (one that should make everyone happy) is to deport kids and parents together, before they’ve been detained for 20 days.

Lena June 23, 2018 at 1:37 PM

The only reasonable thing to do at this point is to not allow illegal aliens to cross into the U.S. Simply turn them around at the border and send them on their way back where they came from. Let Mexico handle it since they don’t seem to be making any effort to stem the tide. The U.S. then doesn’t have to separate the children from the parents, house, feed, and clothe lawbreakers, or deal with a massive number of moronic liberal protesters who exist in a fairyland where resources and taxpayer dollars are infinite.

EastBayJen June 22, 2018 at 9:24 PM

I spoke to a girl today while at work who was so distraught over the separation of children from their parents. I reassured her that all eyes are on those kids, so they will be treated so well that they will feel like they are on vacation. Then she said she just wished that we had no borders…..

Americans. The reason why we have this life is not out of sheer luck. We earned these privileges through decades of trial and error. We made bad decisions along the way, but our country has tried to amend those mistakes. We are unique because we believe in the individual. Why? The better off that person is, the more they will collaborate and inspire innovation with fellow Americans. That is why everyone wants to come here!

Why? Only together we can face the challenges that are thrown at us. This means we can also defend others who need a hand. We cannot promise these freedoms, protections privedgles, and rights if anyone can come in our country unchecked and tear down those corner stones. Let’s face it, a lot of people don’t like us, and a small fraction of those people use violence to show us.

Only a very, very small fraction of people coming into this country by legal and illegal means want to hurt us. That lone wolf or 1 out of million can cause such devasting damage. Maybe they had their reasons for their miserable life and maybe the US is to blame; hoeever, they don’t have the right week revenge or harm us to meet their gains.

Everyone should be allowed to.come here, but we have to make sure they are not going to hurt themselves or others. This is an issue, but it is a worldwide issue. We need to secure our borders so we can guarantee a continued safe haven for those seeking refugee from the old ways of the world. How can they ever escape if their torturers are allowed to follow them in?

Why is this so hard to understand? You feel bad for these people? Condemn the countries they are fleeing and demand the world take notice and demand change. Donate your time and money to helping women and children remain in their home countries, but be provided the rights they would get here. Be mad at the world! Theae people are fleeing terror and sometimes they continue the old ways of the world when they get here. We deserve to know who is coming here!

If people did not try to come here illegally, we would have more resources for those that are waiting for us to help them become a part of this country as an American. More kids would be protected. Less stress on our law enforcement means safer neighborhoods and continued sense of security. Not hard to understand.

I support my President, but I support my country more. I want my kids to be able to continue the tradition of living in a safe place to guarantee those seeking refugee also have a place to come to. Immigration must be controlled by secured borders. Big walls with big doors every so often. That way we can stop the wolves from coming in to prey on the sheep.

How ironic. All you illegal immigrant and sanctuary state loving libs in Claycord will get your chance to put your money where your mouths are very soon when the President makes the CNWS a holding facility for 40000 plus new immigrants. DeSalnier is already crying about it. How funny! Just another “not in my backyard” politician. Can’t wait to hear what Palosi has to say about it. Ra Ra Ra for sanctuary. Well now you will get it. Meanwhile Gavin Newsom has taken away our guns. This is gunna get interesting. Good job libs!

There are 23 consular officers and US embassy in Mexico city.
Write this in big letters on your fridge: legitimate asylum requests can be filed at any of them. There is no need to cross the border and claim refugee status. It is an excuse.

Hussien Said:

“Obamacare is not a tax”
“You can keep your doctor”

Bill Clinton said:

“I did not have sex with that woman”

Most Democrats used to say illegal aliens are hurting our country, now they say the opposite because they see it is the only way they can keep their jobs.

I know so many people are used to being lied to by politicians, thank God we have Trump who is willing to stand up for what he believes in. Like say for Americans and not illegal aliens. It has to ruff for those who aren’t willing to think for themselves.

Our goal is to choose a politician to invest our money for a period of four years. The politician must invest a like-amount of their own money to keep the incentives aligned accordingly. We will ignore the potential for conflict of interest in the investment process, but other legal requirements will apply. This is “cash in” and “cash out.”

You are only allowed two choices (in alphabetical order):

O – Mr. Obama

Who would you choose?

Who would Nancy Pelosi choose? …Maxine Waters? …Paul Ryan?

DeSaulinner is a clown and all that voted for him. He voted to become a sanctuary state and now he has a problem with Trump wanting to turn the CNWS into a holding center.

Well, now that the parents and little girl have been identified….. I wonder if the photographer will donate part of his paycheck from Time to the family? Will Time use any of it’s vast monetary resources to help this child whose photo was used by Time for their left-wing propaganda? I doubt it. Libs don’t want a solution. They just want to scream and yell and complain. It’s obvious how disappointed the news media is, now that Trump has agreed to stop separating families. The Dems were hoping they could drag this crap out until November. Let me know when the photographer and Time offers some assistance to their poster child. Don’t worry about me though …..

Those policies were put in place during the Clinton administration, a more than liberal Democrat, and were in force during Obama’s administration. Trump’s administration is trying to do something to correct the ills of the past that have brought about these conditions, but don’t let the truth of the matter confuse you.

Captain Bebops June 24, 2018 at 12:35 PM

I just got back from the Martinez Famer’s Market which is getting more crowded every week. Lots of young “breeders” have moved into town. Our planetary infrastructure due to greed is not set up for a mushrooming population which could soon reach 13 billion. I don’t know why anyone would want to bring children into such an unequal world. Probably some form of “romanticism” or a “mistake”.

Any economic system that has boom and bust periods is not sustainable. Thus the over 200 year experiment of capitalism is a failure and something needs to be done about it. Greed rules the day and the planet should be renamed “Money” instead of “Earth” because money is all that matters in a deteriorating society.

alwaysbepositive – why don’t you tell the whole story instead of just throwing out simplistic one-sentence statements. To be convicted, you must have the intent to defraud someone. Now go to…

But I guess that doesn’t fit the dnc narrative of simplistic one-sided comments based solely on emotionalism and lack of facts.

l…I don’t live in a crappy apartment, do you? Suggesting people take in immigrants is as ridiculous as me suggesting that if you don’t like it-why don’t you go down to the border to guard against illegal entry. By the way, nothing you said had anything to do with my post.
fp…”tell the whole story”? You conflate conviction with arrest. In our judicial system they are two different things. Look up the term ‘prosecutorial discretion’. If DOJ decided to implement a zero tolerance policy on coin mutilation, they could arrest everyone, but they wouldn’t convict everyone…just like what is happening at the southern border.

Fred P. June 26, 2018 at 11:58 AM

Harley-Davidson expects the tariffs to cost about $30 million to $45 million for the rest of 2018, and could cost $90 million to $100 million on an annual basis. The company said it plans to shift production of EU-bound motorcycles to international facilities from U.S. facilities to avoid the tariff burden.

Trumps immigration problem. When policy is cut off from reality.

RBS June 25, 2018 at 4:34 PM

I supported President Obama, I believe George W. Bush was the worst president in my memory, I also believe that President Trump will be remembered as the most truthful, straightforward and effective president in the last 50 years.

For the first time in my life, I have actually been convinced, that liberalism is quite likely “A Mental Disease,” and I am not going to apologize to anyone for that realization… I understand that intelligence and rational thinking is statistically on a Bell Curve and a percentage of people cannot be reasoned-with… got-it. But, the conduct of the Democratic Party members and followers is inexcusable… they are in the now-continuing process of being exposed. The real problem lies in the weaker side of the Bell Curve, and delivering the truth to the electorate. The best candidates do not always prevail, and the Fake News is real and out of control.

Case in-point… how can someone as incompetent and vile as Maxine Waters be elected? By the way, I would ask the same question for politicians Jesse Helms, George Wallace and Nancy Pelosi. If Maxine Waters is the best candidate available in her district, then there is likely no hope for her constituents.

People, I’m telling you, work hard, OBEY THE LAW… do not even jay-walk, be honest and respectful especially when dealing with authorities… it is not a far-out or complex concept for a successful society.

Fred P. June 25, 2018 at 10:22 AM

For the liberals who’re decrying every move that Trump makes and every word that he speaks….

Either DO something about it (instead of whining from your momma’s basement) or leave. You’re either part of the solution or part of the problem – and from what I’ve seen, none of you are associated with the former.

But you “feel good” in whining about it…..and I guess that’s your goal in your miserable/wretched lives…..

Aspirin June 25, 2018 at 4:06 PM

Wait for the next election before blowing your horn. We’re getting tired of the same old tune.

Fred P. June 25, 2018 at 6:52 PM

Yup , we’re getting tired of the same old (whiny liberal) tune.

And that was for you and randy….

Aspirin June 26, 2018 at 9:09 AM

Fred, the anger and hatred that you spew forth daily is an indication that “that’s your goal in your miserable/wretched life” to quote someone who is qualified to judge who is having a ” miserable/wretched life”

To quote Aspirin: “Be happy in your misery for happiness can be a false promise”.

Lena June 26, 2018 at 9:29 AM

What do liberals have to offer as a platform? If the last nine years are any indication, they have less than nothing going on. A lot of hand gesturing and outrage by Pelosi, but little else. Seriously, the Democrat’s “party” is so over. The country has had enough of their hogwash. They are so busy hurling invectives at conservatives, they haven’t time to do anything constructive for the nation. They’re on the path to self-destruct … in three, two,, one …

Fred P. June 26, 2018 at 1:12 PM

“Anger and hatred”? AWwww……. does widdle aspirin feel bad? Time to go to your safe space?

Actually, I feel pretty good! I have to pity the likes of you who have to pretend expertise in a host of subjects. Apparently, you missed about 12 years of elementary/junior high/high schools.

I can’t tell you how to feel – any more than you can tell me how to feel, so your “diagnosis” of “anger and hate” is solely your interpretation. But you should have know that in “working with surgeons.” Those comments are directed to those of you who delight in quoting opinions as though they were facts, and ridiculing those who disagree with you.

That’s called hypocrisy. Get it?

If you have a problem with my comments, they I suggest you look in your mirror – since you’re doing the same thing. And if that bothers you – then tough $hit.

While you’re “admiring” yourself in the mirror, you really ought to take some lessons in statistics, firearms, the Constitution, health care, economics, politics, and another 10-15 subjects.

Now go back to “paying doctor.”

Oh, what short memories liberals have.

How about that, only recently passed the 500 day mark of Trump Presidency. Obama it turns out really was a worse President than Bush’s STUPID kid..

“In a new Quinnipiac University Poll, 33% named Obama the worst president since World War II, and 28% put Bush at the bottom of post-war presidents.

“Over the span of 69 years of American history and 12 presidencies, President Barack Obama finds himself with President George W. Bush at the bottom of the popularity barrel,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.”

JWB June 25, 2018 at 5:00 PM

so you really like this poll and believe it really is meaningful? The one you cited was actually from 2014 but here is the one from 2018.

“Who’s the worst president of the United States since World War II? Donald Trump, according to a plurality of voters.

A new Quinnipiac University National Poll released Wednesday showed that 41% of voters named Trump as the worst of the 13 presidents who have held office since then. He was then followed by Barack Obama, who received 21% of votes.”

RBS June 25, 2018 at 5:37 PM


On election day in 2016 the majority of polls indicated that Mr. Trump’s chances of defeating Mrs. Clinton was about 5%.

Facts can be a problem.

JWB June 25, 2018 at 6:45 PM

@RBS first I think these polls were quite accurate, but Mr. Trump was lucky to get the votes they way he got them to win the electoral college, which is what matters. Second why would you address me in your response? I was only responding to the person who posted the 2014 poll and based on his statements seems to find this polling to be significant.

RBS June 26, 2018 at 7:26 AM


If I’m not mistaken, this venue is to debate and respond. I was explaining that the polls relating to Mr. Trump may be unreliable. You and everyone else can provide your/their own conclusions as to why this is the case.

By the way, I would like to further reiterate that I do not have a very high regard for our elected Republicans, nor do I have much respect for our elected Democrats. My only hope is that President Trump can show our politicians how to get things done on a common sense platform… I’m not very optimistic, as this is evidently something entirely new in the political system of our country.

In any case, I do appreciate your points of view… I believe that they are valuable and worthwhile.

Almost comical to watch, if probable outcome weren’t so pathetically predictable. The resist / impeach movement stoked on by a complicit alphabet media will likely again result in violence.

Likely fearing violence perpetrated by another impressionable simple minded low information voter both Pelosi and Schumer, backpedaling without mirrors, have attempted damage control after MAD Maxine ran her mouth.
Not once but twice and on video for all the world to see.

During rein of the obama cabal, Democrats at Federal and state levels lost over 1,000 seats in state legislatures, governorships, seats in congress and finally the Presidency.

Yet they persist in spawning these “movements” to hold the attention of impressionable minions, occupy, resist, etc which always manage to metastasis out of control causing violence and the party respect of the American people.

Repeat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is heaping more criticism on America’s electoral college, this time during an appearance at Oxford in the United Kingdom.

Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential campaign with 232 electoral votes to President Trump’s 306, has previously called for scrapping America’s system of electing presidents, instead relying on a direct one-person, one-vote election.

The Democrat was lamenting the power of populism when the subject came up: “Populists can stay in power by mobilizing a fervent base. Now, there are many other lessons like this. Louise mentioned my personal experience with winning 3 million more votes, but still losing. And we will leave discussions of American Electoral College for another day, but Mounk concludes by saying, ‘Turkey also shows that political and intellectual elites, both inside the country and around the world, persistently underestimate the threat which these kinds of leaders pose to the survival of democratic institutions.’”

Clinton also suggested American citizens, under President Trump, may lose their rights to due process.

“Today, the American president tweeted there should be no judicial process, there should be no due process for anyone who crosses the border,” Clinton said. “I can’t help but think, if you strip immigrants and asylum seekers of due process and judicial review, who is next?”

Another example of the left’s losers. Apparently, the moron doesn’t understand the concept of states’ representation, and the fact that the US is a republic.

Showing great sense and love for America, the Supreme Court has upheld President Donald Trump’s travel ban in one of the most highly anticipated decisions of this year, saying the ban is “squarely within” the president’s authority.

The Court’s ruling that the third iteration of Trump’s controversial proposal, Travel Ban 3.0, is constitutional comes after two previous attempts by the administration to bar immigration to the United States from certain foreign countries.

You Leftist Marxist Liberals along with your America hating jihadist brethren are a plague on America, and the Supreme Court seems to agree.

To Aspirin:

You all can have your fun, but I absolutely LOVE THIS COUNTRY.

I do not share your view in the least… our collective problem is obvious to me… Americans (in the USA) are becoming spoiled-rotten, period. In my view, we are getting fatter, lazier, increasingly ignorant (or more accurately, stupid) and that is the sad part… but, I am optimistic.

The current disparity in wealth is not entirely due to capitalism, but that the few hard-working, brightest and best American citizens are accumulating more wealth than the increasing citizenship of the fatter, lazier… etc… There appears to be a dilution of good sense, and I see that day-to-day in real-time, not just in the news.

I was heartbroken when former First Lady Michelle Obama made some disparaging remarks about the state of our country, and not for the reasons I’ve just stated… maybe her statements can provide some vital insight to the Obama administration policies, which undeniably favored terrorist nations over peaceful democracies in the Middle East. I do not want to repeat what she expressed, if you don’t know that’s fine, I respect her and her rights to express her views.

But, I now believe that we were fooled… misled by the majority of the media, which provided incredibly favorable press to the Obama administration. Although I was personally desperate to see the past administration succeed, I now see the history and results (or lack of results) a little clearer, and in a more honest perspective.

In any case, I do respect elections and laws, “Let’s give the Statue of Liberty back to the French” is not helpful, but informative, and I like Aspirin’s contributions very much. For me, all the views on this venue reinforce the beliefs that I have expressed.

Chicken Little June 26, 2018 at 12:33 PM

(CNN) — White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is expected to receive Secret Service protection as soon as Wednesday, two sources familiar with the decision tell CNN, but they did not specify how long it will last.

The Secret Service declined to comment, telling CNN: “For operational security purposes the Secret Service does not comment on its protective operations.”

The news comes days after Sanders was asked to leave a small Lexington, Virginia, restaurant because of her role with the Trump administration, a move that has since sparked a national conversation on civility and public service in the age of Trump.

NBC News first reported that Sanders would begin receiving protection.

Sanders did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment.

Speaking about the restaurant incident during Monday’s White House press briefing, Sanders said she and her husband “politely left.”

“I was asked to leave because I worked for President Trump,” she said, adding, “We are allowed to disagree but we should be able to do so freely and without fear of harm, and this goes for all people regardless of politics.”

She continued: “Healthy debate on ideas and political philosophy is important, but the calls for harassment and push for any Trump supporter to avoid the public is unacceptable.”

****More examples of the (in)tolerant and hypocritical left. Just like the Scalise shooting by a deranged left-wing activist. They lover to preach diversity of thought, tolerance, inclusiveness and freedom of speech – as long as you agree with them. If not, then the violence begins ****

Then aspirin spews his/her/its diatribe about “anger and hate…” and the moron doesn’t even know the FACTS.

Sanders is a smart woman doing a difficult job, much unlike Waters who oozes some sort of brain inadequacy whenever she opens her mouth. I believe Saunders has grounds for a discrimination lawsuit based on her restaurant experience. She is being discriminated against for her professional stature? Her pilitical affiliation? Her abolity to actually do the job that a few before her really couldn’t handle? Inclusion, equality, non-discrimination, acceptance?

To Fred P.:

I doubt very much that there will be any revolution in the USA in the next 25 years or more.

There may be violent demonstrations, riots and looting in the larger urban areas, which is nothing new.

After maybe 80 to 100 years from now there may be a sufficient dilution of the culture that created our great nation, and the USA as it is now constituted will possibly cease to exist. I think that is a worst-case scenario, and I sure-would prefer to be optimistic.

In any case, there is nothing to be overly concerned about for now, but we certainly are a nation of worriers. The media does thrive on that dynamic.

Elwood June 27, 2018 at 5:33 PM

Aspirin, the only sensible thing to do is to curl up in a fetal position and suck your thumb until the revolution.

RBS June 27, 2018 at 7:37 PM

To Aspirin:

Geeez, I really feel bad for you, if you are serious, that is really a bleak outlook. But, I believe that I can pretty-much shred most of your complaints except for the last one pertaining to overseas issues.

You are absolutely right on that, with George W. Bush and other presidents contributing to those disasters. I never had much of a problem with President Obama and the “cross the line” thing… sometimes you need a peacemaker and sometimes you need an @$$kicker, but those “hills” need to be chosen very carefully, not recklessly.

Regarding the other issues, when do you think these trends began? …was it maybe 9 years ago? …or maybe 17 months ago? …or 40 years ago?

Fred P. June 27, 2018 at 11:31 AM

@rbs – I don’t know…. While I’m not particularly “concerned” in general, I would expect to see increased violence in urban areas…. and I can only hope that cooler heads will prevail and people start working together instead of just pointing fingers and blaming the “other side.” Fortunately, I don’t personally have to be concerned about it any more.

I found another post by Dr. King – while liberals won’t like the source, the fact remains that she raised the issue……

Rep. Maxine Waters has encouraged people to go out and harass, resist and push back against the Trump administration in restaurants and wherever they are found. Meanwhile White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was kicked out of a restaurant.

Sanders remains fair and focused while being attacked for doing her job.

On the heels of several recent incidents, Rep. Waters, D- Calif., has taken the reins of an already out of control political “resistance movement” in an attempt to solidify in the minds of the American people that there is nothing more to stand on but anger at the success of the Trump administration.

Notably along with Ms. Sanders, White House adviser Stephen Miller was called a fascist at a Mexican restaurant where he was dining on June 17.

Also protesters from the Metro Washington, D.C. Democratic Socialists of America harassed Department of Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as she was engaged in a working dinner at a D.C. Mexican restaurant.

The harassment became so severe, she was forced to leave.

Then the owner of the Red Hen asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave her restaurant because she works for President Trump.

So Maxine Waters tried to justify her “resistance” actions by reading a list of things that Trump has said.

The difference between Congressman Waters and President Trump is that, while Congressman Waters is calling for incendiary resistance and not offering any solutions, President Trump does have solutions and is keeping his promises, thus he is obtaining as many results as possible from his position as president of the United States.

Just as he promised, to name a few:
President Trump has appointed a constitutional conservative to the U.S. Supreme Court.

He has jumpstarted our economy and as a result we now have the lowest unemployment rate in comparatively recent history.

He has signed an executive order to keep Immigrant children and their parents together.

He has supported pro-life legislation and is undoubtedly the most pro-life president in recent history.

He has upheld the religious freedom of all Americans.

Two wrongs don’t ever make a right so hurling insults at each other is not the most effective way for humans to communicate. There is a more excellent way.

In 1 Corinthians 12:31, we discover and read, “But desire earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way.”

So, what can we as Americans do to help President Trump continue to Make America Great Again? We can pray; we can elect government officials who will affirm us rather than kill, traffic, abort, euthanize and harm anyone; elect officials who get results for life and help with the pursuit of happiness.

In 2016 I came to an agreement with my family members — no fighting over politics.

Over the holidays I wrote a cookbook and also we engaged in the 6 steps for non-violent conflict resolution which emerged in the 20th century civil rights movement.

This process works for reconciliation.

As human beings, we can change the way we interact with each other if we want to steer the proverbial train away from the current course that is otherwise assuredly going to end in unprecedented violence.

In a similar light. I have recently reviewed a movie regarding a violent political group. It was revealing, shocking and in the end redemptive, for a few leaders that have since grown wiser and moved on.

The deciding factor in these mens’ choices? The mutual respect and friendship of the documentary author. They are now speaking with the violent groups to offer up a better solution.

I was relieved to find the end to offer hope, rather than dispare.

Leave it to liberals to become harassers, violent, and irrationally angry when they can’t have their way. They aren’t the problem solvers in the world. They can’t sit down and discuss things rationally. They believe everybody must think just like they do and to do otherwise is heresy. People who become physically violent and harassing to make their point are pathetic and to be pitied … and institutionalized to protect the rest of us. Maxine Waters has overstayed her welcome and is contributing nothing constructive to the civility of discussion. She snd others like her need to step aside and let those who do proceed to run the country.

Aspirin June 27, 2018 at 4:25 PM

Fred, does this mean that you will no longer be posting your usual insults ?

Fred P. June 28, 2018 at 6:54 AM

As opposed to you posting YOUR insults?

Once again, aspirin displays her/his/its hypocrisy. If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Look in the mirror. And until you take those liberal promoters of violence to task – then you’re no better than them….and are to be treated as such.

BTW – how’ that stock market “crash” you predicted on Trump’s election? Any more “predictions” based on your (lack of) expertise and knowledge/training????????


Rollo Tomasi June 28, 2018 at 10:25 AM

Aspirin just hurls insults at republicans and conservatives in general rather than at individuals here, which makes perfect sense because identity politics is the domain of the liberal left. Also, that way he/she can virtue signal about insults written by others.

As mentioned yesterday, Got your earplugs ? ? ?

Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy 81 years of age
announced today he will retire at the end of July.

Liberal alphabet media are going out of their minds predicting in their simple minds dire and possibly almost planet ending consequences as result of another Trump Supreme Court nomination.

Always Right June 27, 2018 at 9:11 PM

Yes liberals heads are exploding.

Trump gets another Supreme pick. Pro-life, pro-American.

I predict either a woman or Hispanic. Hopefully under the age of 50.

This is gonna be sweet!

Fred P. June 28, 2018 at 6:50 AM

Sitting back and watching the tiny liberal minds wailing and gnashing their collective teeth while Trump nominates another conservative to SCOTUS.

Someone should tell the libs that promoting violence isn’t helping their cause. Of course, maybe that’s their plan – then they can continue playing the victim.

Randy/aspirin/local – Keep on whining and crying….yes, Randy – whining. And maybe Ginsburg will retire soon – sweeeeet!

Randy June 28, 2018 at 10:38 AM

Always can predict a hispanic woman conservative. Didn’t know there was one legally in the country. DACA? We all know what trump likes and it isn’t a woman minority

Randy June 27, 2018 at 4:11 PM

I’m so shocked. Played like the fool he is

Fox Entertainment

Despite North Korea’s promise to work toward “complete denuclearization” following the historic summit with Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump earlier this month, new satellite imagery indicates North Korea is making improvements to one of its nuclear scientific research centers at a “rapid pace.”

RBS June 28, 2018 at 8:30 AM

I honestly do not know how anyone could not love Randy… expecting and demanding absolute perfection from our president. That is a very high bar. I’m not sure that it can be achieved by any mortal human that ever lived, but the sentiment is encouraging and optimistic.

Let’s just see what happens… maybe the president will fail on this one? I’m sure no American (US) of pure-spirit and in their right-mind would actually WANT that result… maybe an evil foreign national would possess such an attitude, but not a real American, thank God!

In any case, these views are most enlightening and revealing, they’re great!

AlwaysBePositive June 29, 2018 at 10:47 AM

It’s even worse than that. djt has been saying that the remains of KIA and MIA from the Korean War are already being returned. No other government department has been able to give any details on these claims.

Nunya June 27, 2018 at 6:30 PM

Maxine Waters should be charged with inciting to riot and for using the first amendment to trick people into thinking it is OK to assault others because of differing political views.

Justyfiable anger June 28, 2018 at 9:23 AM

I agree!

Randy June 28, 2018 at 9:37 AM

Maxine Waters must be the flavor of choice in the fox entertainment meetings based on the sheeple posts.

JWB June 28, 2018 at 2:13 PM

… so how come you are so focussed on Maxine Waters?

How about Milo Yiannopoulos who texted two days ago: “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight” or Donald Trump who regularly calls the news “the country’s biggest enemy”?

Nunya June 29, 2018 at 7:04 PM


Why are you so keen on changing the subject?

As for the first I don’t know what you think I should say. Because someone who claims to be conservative makes provocative comments that jutisfies Maxine? Two wrongs make a right, too?

As for President Trump, while nothing justifies what happened recently (and is the point of your bait question here, did you read this somewhere or come up with it yourself?) he is correct in saying that so called news outlets who lie or otherwise manipulate facts for their agenda are hurting this country. If you would stop believing everything your Democratic overloads tell you and check the facts you’d see you are being used by lifetime politicians who neither care about you or anyone else but themselves. We need the swamp drained. We need unbiased news. We need a president who will fight for Americans. We don’t need a one world government, open boarders BS, it will never work. This is America, not one-world-istan. Why do you people fight for illegal aliens? They will rape your daughters, sons, wife and mother. They do not want to be Americans, if they did, then they would apply for citizenship at our consulate in Mexico. Instead they hop a fence with pre-printed cards saying what they need to say to get in. And well if you love them so much let them live in your house with your family, because I sure as HELL don’t want then in my neighborhood.

During the last week, djt has touted the idea at different times that US Steel is opening 5, 6, or 7 new production facilities. Guess what? It’s not happening. US Steel is restarting two facilities. As a publicly traded company US Steel would have had to disclose that forward looking economic move. We are so screwed.

Original G June 28, 2018 at 3:19 PM

Hmm, is that worse than keeping the health insurance and Doctor you had and liked before obamacare??
Oh, and still waitin’ for that thousand or so dollars I was supposed to save because of obamacare.

Randy June 28, 2018 at 1:38 PM

The answer is Space Force. Because we must be prepared for aliens trying to take over Earth.

AlwaysBePositive June 28, 2018 at 5:24 PM

og…I’m not talking about what you are referring to (I still have the same doctor, and health insurance I had 10 years ago, and I am still saving more than $1k per year because my adult daughter can remain on my healthcare plan). I am talking about a person that can’t remember his lies from one minute to the next.

Original G June 28, 2018 at 7:14 PM

ABP … Glad you managed some savings.

As to steel making facilities coming on line it would be better for the country long term if antiquated mills were not brought back.
That one company for many, many years took profits and did not go in for large production facilities upgrades which is one of the reasons durable goods manufactures sought out foreign steel.

The days of if you can get it out the end of the mill and coil it back up you can sell it are long gone.

Two facilities you refer to are at Granite City works one should be on line, second will be Sept. – Oct. If memory serves 800 people will again have LIVING WAGE jobs.

Regardless of Trump’s steel misstatement I’ll still take him over the bowing, apologizing, teleprompter lecturing Obama.

Trump as with Reagan proves best Presidents in my lifetime were NON career politicians. We dodged such a bullet, romney ryan would have been as bad or worse than obama.

” The Janus ruling smashes laws in 22 states — including New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and California — that compel nonmembers to support unions. Until now, if you wanted a government job in these states, you had to pay up. But now firefighters, teachers and other public employees won’t have to fork over a penny to a union if they choose not to join. For the average worker who opts out, it will mean hundreds of dollars more in take-home pay a year.

More in workers’ pockets, less in union coffers. Nationwide, unions are expected to forfeit hundreds of millions of dollars when nonmembers stop paying and some members quit to save money, too.

When unions lose, so do politicians — primarily Democrats — who feed at their table. The Democratic Party counts on unions to tilt elections with hefty donations and manpower to get out the vote. Unions are the Democratic Party’s ATM. The Janus ruling, by reducing that money source, levels the political playing field. ”

Randy June 29, 2018 at 6:15 AM

Let’s hope they now negotiate their own contracts.

With everyone gawking at the fire I should have Talk About Politics all to myself! Let’s see how long this remains as the final word on politics. 🙂
