In the light of this, calls come from the liberal left for a more relaxed prison regime. This, of course, is directly what leads to this sort of consequence. Cognitive dissonance.
HAS there ever been so much confidence and winning before POTUS gets sworn in? Boom:
Ford will build a plant in Michigan instead of Mexico as a “vote of confidence” in President-elect Donald J. Trump’s incoming administration, its CEO Mark Fields announced on Tuesday.
The announcement means Ford will cancel its plans to build a new plant in Mexico and will instead invest $700 million in Michigan—creating 700 new jobs here in the United States—CNN reports […]
Fields said his company’s decision to create jobs in America rather than in Mexico is a “vote of confidence” in Trump’s incoming administration and the pro-business environment it will create.
A few weeks ago Obama attempted to mock Mr Donald J. Trump’s job plans, snorting “What magic wand do you have?” The sap probably thinks you actually need a magic wand. No son, you just need to not be a low-grade socialist wimp.
Trump isn’t even in office yet. He’s just doing up his laces. Jeez, the winning is going to be so spectacular.
The President-elect promised revelations today, or was it tomorrow, on information regarding alleged Russian hacking, or the lack thereof. He claims to know things unknown by others, and I look forward to his update with the same confidence I had when OJ said he was hunting the “real killers”.
From Trump’s viewpoint claims of Russian interference are personal insults to his fair winning of the election. Frankly, I don’t think Russian interference changed the outcome at all. A more secure man would be opposed to their attempt to influence the outcome, but he is a very insecure man. As such, he has to downplay and dismiss it. In reality, it won’t matter from a substantive standpoint because the election won’t be overturned (nor should it be). But he is ignoring being used as a tool for foreign propaganda purposes, and that is troubling.
The incoming Trump Administration and Republican majority Congress promised to ” drain the swamp “. The House Republicans have taken a huge step in the opposite direction yesterday.
Pay no attention to what crooked Trump and his crooked Republican Party says. Pay great attention to what they do.
We will soon see a trashing of ethics on a scale never seen before.
Because this is what they do. Boss Tweed would be proud.
WASHINGTON — House Republicans, overriding their top leaders, voted on Monday to significantly curtail the power of an independent ethics office set up in 2008 in the aftermath of corruption scandals that sent three members of Congress to jail.
The move to effectively kill the Office of Congressional Ethics was not made public until late Monday, when Representative Robert W. Goodlatte, Republican of Virginia and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, announced that the House Republican Conference had approved the change. There was no advance notice or debate on the measure.
The surprising vote came on the eve of the start of a new session of Congress, where emboldened Republicans are ready to push an ambitious agenda on everything from health care to infrastructure, issues that will be the subject of intense lobbying from corporate interests. The House Republicans’ move would take away both power and independence from an investigative body, and give lawmakers more control over internal inquiries.
It also came on the eve of a historic shift in power in Washington, where Republicans control both houses of Congress and where a wealthy businessman with myriad potential conflicts of interest is preparing to move into the White House.
Here’s some glorious trash from the Independent.
Theresa May is risking peace in Northern Ireland to pursue the anti-human rights agenda of her Little Englanders
How interesting. The majority of people in the UK who voted to take control back of our borders are “little Englanders” – including the Welsh. Or so alleges this Irish Republican shill.
Here’s another glimpse into the abyss from the same article….
Last week, in a move of characteristic short-sightedness, Communities Minister Sajid Javid announced he is considering a British values oath for public sector workers. Such a move would be deeply damaging and divisive in Northern Ireland, where many Unionists (predominantly members of the Protestant community) identify as British and many Nationalists (predominantly members of the Catholic community) reject a British identity and instead identify as Irish.
Listen, these “public sector workers” can self-identity as Martian for all I care but they get paid care of the BRITISH taxpayer so if they prefer not to respect that I suggest they find a place in the private sector that will respect their undoubted talents. Then again….
Let’s move on to the punchline…
Northern Ireland cannot simply be an afterthought for Theresa May. Whether she is demonstrating reckless disregard or outright ignorance, her policies are not only insulting or damaging but, in the case of human rights reform, they appear outright illegal.
Poor little butt hurt remainers like Siobhan are going to have to learn to accept that the UK will be leaving the EU and that we will also be leaving the ECHR in due course. British human rights will be deemed good enough for the majority of us and if some Irish sympathisers don’t like it, well, they know where the border lies….
Definition of stupidity; A Government promising to resolve the “housing crisis” whilst keeping borders open to those who cause the crisis!
England’s first garden villages have been proposed for 14 sites spread across the country from Cornwall to Cumbria, the government has announced. Ministers have lent their support to 14 planned developments which will each deliver between 1,500 and 10,000 properties and establish new villages. The new garden villages could provide 48,000 homes, the government says.
I CONGRATULATE the various German police forces, who seem to have taken pre-emptive measures in order to protect their womenfolk this New Year’s Eve.
Cologne’s police chief has denied accusations of racial profiling after the force tweeted they had detained hundreds of North African men to prevent a repeat of last year’s mass sex attack.
The men had gathered late on Saturday near Cologne’s main train station and in the Deutz district, across the Rhine river.
Police described them as being “Nafris” – a colloquial term for North Africans – which prompted furious online criticism as it suggested the men had been arrested on the basis of their appearance alone.
We’re getting similar reports from elsewhere. Of course the radical commies are outraged. It grieves them that the primitives’ national sport of “taharrush”, where a mob surrounds Western women to make rape and sexual assault easier, had to be called off. It’s just so disrespectful to their culture, innit? Well good; our culture is better than their culture. Really, some Leftists are actually upset that the police prevented women from being sexually assaulted and raped. Just let that sink in.
It wasn’t all perfect, but men cannot be everywhere. Some reports of primitives committing sexual assaults have escaped the state-media lockdown. On the whole, however, the hitherto useless German police appear to have woken up to the Merkel catastrophe.
SOME butthurt commie is whining that Mr Donald J. Trump is about to re-wind the clock and “take America back to the 1950s”. Wow, not even I thought that he’ll be that great.
Back to when America made stuff. Back to sunny days and optimism (the Sun always shone in the 1950s). Back to leaving your doors unlocked. Back to decency and civility. Back to a way of life and a country before cultural Marxists polluted everything. Back, even, to when a young lady could proudly aspire to the greatest role of all –
Hey, let me know if Trump pulls it off. I’ll be over like a shot.
I didn’t do a Friday video, so I’ll combine it with a message to all the Anti-Trumpers, Anti-Brexiters, Anti-Americans, Anti-Rightwingers, and just the lot of you in general…. read the Words
Oh and Happy New Year!
I’M going to miss 2016. Let’s be honest, it’s been just about as splendid a year as all patriots and decent people can have hoped for. Just Leicester City winning the Premier League would have been incredible. Just Mr Donald J. Trump winning, by a landslide, the presidency, would have been comedy for the ages. But to get those and Brexit makes 2016 a true vintage.
So it’s to the morning of 24th June that I turn for my favourite video of the year. Just check the arrogance of this Remaoner. Witness her disdain. What a horrid, dismissive attitude she has. All that matters is her and people like her. Of course she’s in London, that isolated island of ignorance and hate. What a teary package of butthurt she is. I’ll never get tired of seeing this. It cheers me no end –
And for good measure, I add in the tweet of the year. It’s magically timed, genuinely funny and manages to remind us how off the polls were, even late on Independence Day. You’re welcome –
