The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost,
Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration,
politics without God, heaven without hell.
“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.”
― William Saroyan
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery. -- Winston Churchill
Ignorance is not an opinion, liberals
I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. C. S. Lewis
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

THERE WILL BE NO THREATS OF ANY KIND AT THIS BLOG, TO POLITICIANS OR OTHER COMMENTERS. thank you.
This woman is a total fraud. She had no problem being a good capitalist and flipping foreclosed homes. I CANNOT STAND her. Total Democrat garbage.
I’m not a fan of the rule, as it’s rather arcane and has been applied ridiculously unevenly over the years. Warren was citing the statements of others [one of which was a Senator at the time] regarding the conduct of Sessions, from before he was Senator. I don’t favor special rules put in place by politicians…to shield politicians from criticism.
What FB said. She’s a hack and a tool.
I favor McConnel shutting her up. I want the repubs defennding themselves for a change.
I’m with Kid. Bury those people, fight them, put them back into their place. I’m boycotting all kinds of businesses now. Removed apps, deleted account, etc… I’ve become an activist and I don’t care anymore if it huts a business and its employees.
She has a 44 percent approval rating in MA.. She just might be heading toward the end of her nonsense if MA comes to their senses.
I’m gonna go with Napoleon on this’n: Never interfere with an enemy who is in the process of self destruction.
Actually, Schumer articulated it quite clearly a day or so ago when he made remarks about Dems dulling the spear if they go to the mat on every issue every time . . . makes ’em look petty and whiney, like a 2-yr-old who’s had his binky taken away from him.
Shoulda let her just go ahead moonbatting and diggin that hole she’s fallen into. The hard left will always support her brand of lunacy, but the more noisome and frantic she becomes, the more some of the moderates might leave the ship in the next port of call.
The Senate has always been pompous and phony. What bothers me more is that the NAACP lauded Sessions
but now feel they must return to the plantation and go with their massas’ political commands to oppose him.
Warren…Fauxahontis…..Hoping the smarter votes in MA ( I doubt it though ) George Custer her. Yea. I know….Custer…like us…it’s our last stand too.
Bocopro! I hadn’t seen this… I just Googled NAACP AWARD JEFF SESSIONS and only one article was shown. Also, people are forgetting how many Black men supported Sessions during his hearings…. This award, and the fact that it’s not in the news, is astonishing. I wish FOX had the guts, if they know about it….because the NAACP is now apparently protesting Sessions at his offices, etc.
THEY SHOULD HAVE JUST LET HER TALK…it was late at night, nobody’d EVER EVER have heard this because, as you can see, the CONTENT of King’s letter haven’t been discussed, only WARNER BEING TOLD TO SIT DOWN.
I’m with Kid and FB. Instead, why didn’t she mention all the “good” Obama did for the Blacks during his administration? They never, ever, mention THEIR failures…….or OUR successes. They are so lopsided! Also, during any of their demonstrations, have you ever seen one protester talk about their protest w/o yelling and screaming? Or sensibly answer questions thrown at them? NEVER! Yet the media continues to cover and protect them.
Indeed, she needed to be silenced……….and was!
In the old days, there was no NEED to enforce this rule. Lack of enforcement since the 60’s has lead to the acrimonious political “divisions” we see today.
Are we in for a childish, perpetual Left Wing, DemocRAT tantrum for the next > 4 years?
John, it SURE looks like it.
FJ….Part of that slapdown of Warren was her terrible insult to Sessions without him there….I agree, we shouldn’t have to enforce GOOD MANNERS.
And Marco Rubio was right when he asked if we’re going to be one of those governments where dopey politicos are throwing chairs at each other?
Mal; yes, but it wasn’t worth the way the Leftwingers are now spinning it….Republican politicians need to learn that.
Oh brother; WHITE WOMAN told to sit down after wanting to read what BLACK CIVIL RIGHTS WIFE wrote? It was late at night; nobody’d EVER have heard this letter.
But the left’s loving it NOW.
have you all been paying attention to the 9th Circuit decision which is about to come?
When you read the law, there can be no other way to read it than what Trump means.
For the Judge to have asked if Trump’s lawyer had heard Giuilianni say “this is about Muslims” is NUTS. it’s not up to the judge to judge Giuliani….
It’s THE LAW..
Any input you guys have?
Look at the good side, Warren and Sanders are the brightest lights in the Democrat chandelier.
@JMB “Are we in for a childish, perpetual Left Wing, DemocRAT tantrum for the next > 4 years?”
1 ex from today – Trumpo tweeted “My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!”
News?? TRUMP RIPS INTO NORDSTROM !!!!!
Z, the judge is obviously a political hack. Hopefully the terrorists pouring ion will move next door to him.
Well…Pocahontas got Mitch slapped!
Imp; ya, and she got HIM slapped by the media.
Kid, definitely political….our democracy is hanging on a thread
Nordstrom made a very stupid move; thinking they’ll get more shoppers for dissing Ivanka since they think most Americans hate them….wrong. The designer who did Melania’s ball gown got MORE hits and interest and is thrilled. Let’s hope Nordstrom suffers for this.
Z, you were expecting something different ? 🙂
I’ve not been paying attention to the ruckus in the 9th Circuit. They are the most overturned circuit in the group – very a-constitutional. Trump acted fully within the legal authority granted him by Congress – a temporary suspension of visas and suspension of refugee admissions pending figuring out how to do better vetting – better than the nothing done now.
For a related discussion on more arcane senate ‘rules’ some might like the current Imprimis article by Tom McClintock on filibuster rules here.
On the front page of the Las Vegas Review Journal this a.m. they had a map of the 9th District and it is HUGE! I had no idea it encompasses Calif., Oregon, Wash., Montana, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands and is 20% of the U.S. Population and 40% of the nation’s land mass! It might be headquartered in San Fran but certainly not limited to just the dingbats living there. No wonder they used that court. It said there has been talk of breaking it up but not happened yet. It’s definitely time!
How could anybody have tweeted so horridly against Charlie Hebdo right after they’d suffered so many deaths? What kind of MAN? …
Now we’re hearing the State Department employees have ways of discussing anti-Trump stuff on line and are able to hide it so nobody sees what they’re writing. They’re also signing petitions against him. There are new private email accounts being created so people in government can talk against Trump in private. Get this; they are worried they may have to do illegal things he asks for. As if they CARE?
But, really…WHERE DOES THIS END? HOW DOES THIS PRESIDENCY SURVIVE?
Z, This is just the left who have gotten so left that are now like vampires being drug out into the sunlight. All it is. The president will survive because they will not do anything illegal to allow the vamps to impeach him. And if they did, it would leave Pence who is on board (imo) with Trump’s action plan.
I have friend who works for DHS in DC and he’s telling me gov workers don’t want to execute the orders. I’d fire them all.
Kid, the Pence angle puzzles me. I know EVERY politician has unique ‘qualities’ many people don’t have…they’re greedier for power, they’re smug (watch any News show and the senator or Congressman will just keep talking even when told they have to finish up), etc etc.
So I’m sure Pence has ego and probably more, but he’s apparently a good man!
Remembering he TOOK this job helps me keep optimistic (some days more than others!).
What is HIS ANGLE? Does he see something in Trump we’re not seeing? Does he think Trump’s going to get impeached and just wants to take over? Does he just like the power? I choose to believe the first!
FB….they should be fired. This is really treasonous…..The CONSTANT NEGATIVISM and now this type of behavior from federal employees is shaking me a little. I hate to say it but a LOT of federal workers are ‘[people of color’ and were all HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE Obama fans, so we know Trump’s agenda of actually honoring ALL people and honoring AMERICA FIRST isn’t going to fly with these people, but…really? Don’t want to execute orders?
Could we be really unsafe because something isn’t going to be done that really should have been?
A coupla weeks ago, somebody asked me for one of my lyric revisions for “Officer Krupke” from West Side Story. Couldn’t find it, and in the meantime forgot who asked.
Anyway, here’s the link to the original singalong version, followed by my re-version:
Hey . . . . Senator Chuck Schumer
You just don’t understand,
It’s all your tax’n’spending
That got things outta hand.
The debt is 20 trillion,
The rules just suffocate,
That’s why we won the electorate.
Look, Senator Schumer, we’re very upset;
It’s been three weeks and still there is no full cabinet .
We’re tryin to rebuild
What Obama broke
But you’re just blowin us bad smoke.
It’s just smoke, it’s just smoke,
It’s just thick black smoke
‘Cause you want the new PotUS to choke.
Politics! Just politics.
So, let’s tell it to the world!
Hey . . . all you rabble-rousers
Who can’t accept the loss
And thought a career liar
Would be a better boss
You didn’t like the numbers
And had to throw a fit
Grow up, shut up, learn to live with it.
Yeah, Senator Schumer, you’re really a jerk
Just put a sock in it and let the President work.
You had it your way since two thousand and eight.
We don’t have much more time to wait.
We can’t wait!
We can’t wait. We can’t wait,
‘Cause it’s getting late,
You must learn to just cooperate.
Most of the people in this country believe
Your protests are spite,
Childish, puerile tantrums.
So, that means you’re juvenile delinquents.
O.K. They need to see a mature adult.
Pelosi is a moron.
Waters is a nut.
Warren is a buffoon.
Franken is a mutt.
Sanders is a loser.
Soros is a snake.
Can’t you all just quit for Heaven’s sake!
Senator Schumer, you’re really a fake.
Your kind just never know which twist of truth you should take.
The boycotts and marches do everyone harm,
And make you look like low-class smarm.
They are smarm, they are smarm,
They are low-life smarm.
Yes, they’re sociopathically smarm.
Of course it could be they’ve just
bought into the propaganda.
That means they’ve all been brainwashed.
So their thoughts aren’t their own.
So take them to a deprogrammer.
Hey, leftwing whiney losers:
The writing’s on the wall.
Confirm us a cabinet.
Give up your futile stall.
It can’t be any worse
Than what Obama did to us.
Come on, kiddies, we don’t need the fuss.
Yeah, Senator Schumer, your hypocrisy
Is like a classic case of “Why do they pick on me?”
Part of the process of growth is “adjust.”
So, let The Donald have some trust.
Give him trust, he needs trust,
Not your mean disgust.
Then just watch and see him boom or bust.
The trouble is they’re zealous.
The trouble is they can’t think.
The trouble is they’re jealous.
The trouble is they stink.
The trouble is they’re spoiled.
The trouble is they’re soiled.
Schumer, how did things get so embroiled!
Damn, Senator Schumer
We’re down on our knees,
‘Cause no one wants a Congress with a mental disease.
Look, Senator Schumer,
What are we to do?
Hell, Senator Schumer,
Good point, Z. Didn’t think about it.
Z, Pence like Trump wants to Make America Great Again, and send the communists back 100 years like obama sent the race relations back 60 years.
On your FB comment…..
-Imp sent me a communique today, obama and the bitch warren created this CFPB – consumer financial protection thing, where no doubt the employees do jack schidt everyday and make absurd amounts of money.
-IRS employees cheating on taxes and most of them still there.
– federal employees in general make 130% of what matching jobs in the private sector make.
-IMP sent another telegram talking about all the immigration friendly agencies which are setup to flood our country with welfare mutts and terrorists and not doubt every POS in those agencies are making absurd amounts of money.
-head of planned abortions makes close to a million a year. For What!?
I’ve seen mentions of Congress people writing bills to Delete our involvement in the UN, Delete the EPA, the Dept of Ed. Yea those are very visible, but there are a literal rat’s nest of agencies with people making insane amounts of money that no one has even heard about that are working against America every day and could be deleted without a lot of fuss. Let’s do it.
Then I’ll be absolutely sure, they want to MAGA.
Bottom line though. the Beast Lost !!! That is good enough for me. I’d take that. If we get a good SC Judge or 2, that’s Gravy on the icing. If we get a handle on Immigration, that’s icing on the gravy. Anything beyond that is Sauce Bernaise and King Crab.
FB…kind of scary, isn’t it. Are you living in Idaho NOW? Sold your Simi house, etc?
Bocopro..great lyrics! You need to GET THESE OUT to some publisher somewhere…!! National Review? Weekly Standard? So cool!! I love that whole Officer Krupke thing but your lyrics are BETTER!!
Kid, all the whores need to be FIRED. Man, what an outrage THAT would cause! The problem is WASHINGTON, with these people who don’t want to do their work now because THEY DON’T LIKE THE PRESIDENT. The SCUM.
\How many times do WE have to remind America how much we couldn’t STAND OBAMA? Of course, it wasn’t good enough to be known as people who disagreed with him…we had to be called RACISTS, too.
We need to FIND A NAME FOR THESE FREAKS WHO DON’T UNDERSTAND OUR CONSTITUTION and CAN’T ACCEPT THAT HE IS PRESIDENT.
I KNOW! DEMOCRATS.
But, seriously…what woulld be a good name??
I admit that I found it personally satisfying that somebody made Elizabeth Warren shut up and sit down. That woman grates on my nerves almost as much as the HillaryBeast did.
Yes I’m in Idaho. Very hard winter this year but I’m starting to like it.
HOW DOES THIS PRESIDENCY SURVIVE?
All sorts of forces have joined together to wear us down so that we get discouraged and worn down. Shrug it off.
Elizabeth Warren is loving playing the martyr.
Meanwhile, how much coverage is there of this: Rep. Tom McClintock (R) of California, had to be escorted by police from a town hall meeting in Northern California as anti-Trump protesters followed him shouting, ‘Shame on you!’? Has this even been mentioned on the air by CNN? The Los Angeles Times covered it thusly.
Z, A good name will have few syllables.
I invented the perfect name years ago, or at least I used it before i saw it in print.
AOW, Z, Yea, remember the incompetent defective brain obama crew got all sorts of stuff ‘done’, which will hopefully be undone.
This president and his cabinet have 1000 times to brain power of the obama circus. Simple. Just do it. Hopefully do it with iron clad legislation, or ideally amendmnets to the Constitution for the really big stuff rather than EO’s so it will be very hard to remove.
I will email Donald and let him know our concerns.
I agree with Constitutional Insurgent and bocopro. McConnell should have let Warren read the letter. Just because Warren was making personal accusations, I think that should be allowed. With the current rules, when can you call a Senator a lying bastard? Most of them are.
How does this presidency survive? PATCO
There was a time when they caned each other.
Thomas, what is PATCO?? Political Action …???
Ed…So funny! I read “Charles Sumner” as “Charles Shumer!” I WISH he’d get caned. that’s interesting and reassuring somehow, you know?
Kid…I WISH YOU WOULD EMAIL DONALD. By the way, can WE Tweet HIM? I’d LOVE HIM to read some of OUR concerns…but, I guess not?
Bob…that’s my stance; they should have let her read it. As I said above, it was in the mid of the night, nobody’d ever even noticed it. But McConnell was baited for BEAR because who the heck knows this law 19? Some are saying today that it was meant to BOOST HER POPULARITY so Libs would be FOR WARREN….and lose BIG TIME !! think so?
AOW…no doubt, personally satisfying, but really? “Shrug it off?” I simply can’t. He’s a DOLT and he needs to freakin’ GROW UP and THEN Tweet.. man.
FB…wow!! Cool that you’re liking it (no pun intended!) XXX
Some are saying Gorsuch said this SO SOME ON THE LEFT WOULD APPROVE HIM!! Trump’s idea? I wouldn’t put it past Trump 🙂
And I LIKE IT
Z, I did email him. Yes, you can tweet him, or reply to his tweets, though surely there are staff that are dealing with the replies and tweets.
You can also do https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact#page
Statergery to get warren to be the candidate in 2020? Would be smart because she in unelectable. Sanders Might be electable depending.
PATCO is the Professional Air Traffic Control union. I had a neighbor back in Illinois who was the shop steward for PATCO air traffic control center in Aurora. He was bragging to me and others how Reagan had no choice but to give the union all they demanded. Reagan refused and PATCO went out on strike. Reagan replace all air traffic controllers with military controllers and non-union civilians. He also fired 100% of the striking union members and prohibited them from ever working in the US air system. My neighbor, last I heard, was taking a job at an airport somewhere in central America.
Bocopro – delightful!
Geezer, this is the kind of action we need in 90+ % of the federal agencies. Nuke em. Shut em down. Fire Fire Fire the rest.
Kid, I watched Sanders debate Cruz last night on a CNN TownHall re Obamacare…..As the hour progressed, it was SO clear that it’s so cool to be a lefty and just promise the WORLD . Sanders is ALL OVER single-payer….Cruz is a fabulous brain and debated well but the “I’ve got GOODIES FOR YOU” candidate seems to always win.
Ya, let them throw their money at Warren and LOSE BIG TIME!!! HURRAH!
Geezer/….love that story! You’re right; Reagan survived it. Could Trump survive with firing tons of Black folks in the federal government jobs? Not in TODAY’s climate….remember, race relations had improved……until OBAMA reignited the problems
Z, If Sanders runs, then I can’t lose from here on out. If Trump wins, America gains – good stuff. If Sanders wins, I win becuase I’ll get a big raise in my SS $. The country will go down in flames but if Sanders wins then that is what they voted for and what they need to experience. I have no problem with that.
I’d rather America wins, but hey if ‘they’ beg for destruction and I benefit in the process (I’ll be dead before it goes bust) then what the hey.
OO, WAWAWA, -OO WAWAWA-OO WAWAWA………………………………..OO-WAWAWA!
Now, did everybody get the message or do I have to do this again?
Actually, I thought it was a good idea to silence her, but that’s just my opinion. Apparently the act was ‘legal’ and/or proper for the Senate to do. The Demoncrats sure are making an arse of themselves, but that’s nothing new.
