Boston College History Prof says Trump Tax Plan will Trigger Great Depression

Timothy Birdnow

The media has grown hysterical in their condemnation of the modest tax cuts being promoted by the GOP and President Trump. A quick Google search turned up dozens and dozens of mainstream articles desperate to condemn these cuts as the second coming of Herbert Hoover. Doubt me?

Well, see what Bill Moyers and Company have to say:

Heather Cox Richardson says:

"The Republican Tax Bill Is a Poison Pill That Kills the New Deal

Today’s Republicans would have fit right into Herbert Hoover’s administration."

McCaskill Lies about Tax Reform Bill

Brian takes Sen. Claire McCaskill to the woodshed here:

Dear Senator McCaskill,
If you support real tax reform for Missouri's working families why did you support the Obama Administration's $5 trillion dollar tax, euphemistically known as the Affordable Care Act? That was probably the worst legislative act in the history og this great republic, and you supported it, because your guy, Barack The Boy Wonder, proposed it. Stop insulting our intelligence with these campaign promos.

Brian Birdnow

Here's Claire's sack of lies:

Dirty GOP Deeds Done Dirt Cheap in Alabama

Timothy Birdnow

Yep - it was a united front opposing Roy Moore and, by extenstion, Donald Trump. From Conservative HQ.

"As our friend Michael Patrick Leahy reported for Breitbart, three secretive Washington, D.C. consulting firms founded by former Obama campaign staffers provided millions of dollars in advertising services, apparently Roy Moore Senateentirely on credit, to Highway 31, a shell independent expenditure organization based in Birmingham, Alabama that supported liberal Democrat Doug Jones and opposed conservative Republican Roy Moore.

On Friday, just four days before the election, two of these Washington, D.C. based firms dropped another $101,612 into the Alabama U.S. Senate race, bringing the total spent to date by three firms run by Obama campaign alumni as apparent "in-kind” contributions to Highway 31 to $2.8 million in less than one month.

The counterweight on the Republican side?

Zero." more...

Drooling Stupidity from Jonah Goldberg

Timothy Birdnow

Here's how to win battles and lose the war:

"One would hope that Republicans would now recognize how ridiculous it would be for them to continue acting like Mitch McConnell is the problem. McConnell is the single most important person for getting the ‘Trump agenda’ passed, and declaring open war on him and backing fourth rate candidates is not just dumb, it actually hurts Trump more than it does McConnell.” —Jonah Goldberg

Who started the war, Jonah?  McConnell spent 14 million dollars to steal that seat for a loser named Luther Strange, and still couldn't pull the guy over the finish line. Why was Mitch so eager to put Strange in the post?  And why waste so many resources to do it? Moore would have lost had McConnell backed Mo Brooks, but then a conservative would have been in office rather than a greasy yes man and RINO.

What has McConnell done to promote the Trump agenda, Jonah?  What did the GOP do to promote the agenda of Middle America at all? Trump won because he actually wanted to roll back the Red Tide that has been sweeping the coasts and the GOP along with it. In case you missed it Jonah, the Republicans hated Trump when he ran and still do. Doubt that?  Why couldn't they kill Obamacare?  It was so as not to give Trump a win.

Wolves in sheeps clothing. Maybe your mother never told you that story, but you should remember it. Mitch McConnell and many other Republicans are there for themselves and for the joy of being the Big Man on Campus.  They have long ago sold their souls and America be damned.

In case you missed it, Jonah, McConnell is there at OUR pleasure and has no Divine appointment. He is not doing his job.

Oh, and had YOU or any of your inside the beltway buddies tried to support Moore you wouldn't have lost the seat. In fact, had YOU and the rest of the RINO's who disgrace the once great National Review ever tried to promote conservati\sm Moore (or Mo Brooks) would be going into the Senate now. You'd rather have invitations to appear on mainstream media programs, though.

Moore lost SOLELY because of the scandal, and that was purely political and would have happened to anybody else who ran. If you don't know that you have no busineess shooting your mouth off, Jonah.

Misandry Rises: In Defense of Men

Selwyn Duke

"Don’t vote for men!” is the message of a recent campaign ad. Issued by Dana Nessel, Democratic attorney general contender in Michigan, what she literally says is, "Who can you trust most not to show you their [sic] penis in a professional setting?”

She answers that it’s the candidate who doesn’t have one.

Now, a person could easily go tit for tat (not that I’dever consider such a thing!). Noting how some voters, addressing politicians’ pusillanimity, lament how we need leaders with "a pair,” one could ask "Who can you trust most to have a pair?” and answer "The candidate who by definition has one.”

But the anti-male bias animating Nessel has long been brewing. In 2004, Sweden’s Left Party (yeah, that’s its actual name) proposeda "Man Tax,” a special levy on men designed to compensate society for the cost of male violence. I always answer that I’ll be happy to pay my man tax — as long as I also get royalties for all of history’s man-birthed inventions and innovations. I’ll then use what’s left over to self-fund a presidential run.

Herb London and "the New York Fallacy"

Jack Kemp

Herb London, a distinguised writer and longtime President of the Hudson Institute in New York, has a blog piece at American Thinker today called "Terrorism shows its ugly face again," which shows off some flaws in NY elite thinking in its first sentence/paragraph. But his opening line shows an attitude I know all too well, namely fellow New Yorkers assuming everyone, anywhere is totally familiar with New York City.

The full paragraph reads as:

A Bangladeshi man reportedly inspired by ISIS set off a pipe bomb strapped to his body sowing mass chaos in New York’s Port Authority, but fortunately causing few, if any, injuries. It is believed the terrorist detonated his low-tech device prematurely.


My posted comment in reply reads as:

"set off a pipe bomb strapped to his body sowing mass chaos in New York’s Port Authority..."

Mr. London, there are many readers here not from the New York area who don't understand that "New York's Port Authority" in this context is a reference to a very large commuter bus station and not to a government office building. In fact, the bomb was detonated in a NY subway system passenger tunnel near or, as some reports state, underneath the Port Authority bus station. Yes, the panic quickly spread to the bus station itself but it also - significantly - occured in the subway system, a fact widely reported.

Where are the editors here? Mr. London is an accomplished individual that I've heard talk in person but that doesn't mean everyone reading this board in Saint Paul, MN; Fort Smith, AR: and Sacramento, CA are familiar with NY City shorthand expressions like "Port Authority" when it means the big commuter bus station. In fact, this assumption that everyone knows NY City slang is part of the myopic vision of the bicoastal elites that got Donald Trump elected President. Yes, thanks to movies, people all over the country know that "Fifth Avenue" and "Park Avenue" in NY are ritzy addresses but knowledge of NY City locations doesn't extend to everywhere in New York City.

Name that President - Trump, Reagan, or...

Timothy Birdnow

Brian Birdnow forwards this.

https://www.c-spanorg/ video/? c4351026/c

It is from a 1995 State of the Union speech by Bill Clinton. This is a short clip, but do read the entire speech; Donald Trump could give that when he does his first SOTU and nobody would know it was from Clinton.  I mean that in a good way; the Democrats have changed radically since Clinton was President. It would be fun to hear the media condemn the speech.

Below are some quotes I pulled off the speech: more...

GOP Surrender to the Crimson Tide; The Stupidity of not Backing Roy Moore

Timothy Birdnow

So now the Democrats and media and Republican Establishment have taken out Roy Moore and thrown the Senate to a knife edge. Good for them. I hope the Republicans who immediately tossed Moore to the wolves pat themselves on the back for a job well done, and I hope they are the first to fall when the wolves they tossed Moore to come to feast on them.

Writing at American Thinker Keith Edwards makes it plain how this is going to go down:

"The strategy to defeat President Trump in 2020 will be exactly what defeated Roy Moore last night. Democrats and their willing accomplices in the liberal drive-by media will continue to paint President Trump as a serial sexual abuser from now until election night in November 2020. You can bet there will be many more women coming out soon with allegations against President Trump; and regardless of the facts of any of their stories, they will be given constant exposure by the liberal media outlets and the full support of every Democrat in office."

Menorah for your Thoughts?

Dana Mathewson

Sent by Friend Ken.

Here is an interesting article on the history of the early Muslims with the Jews. Relative to the Mosque site and its influence today.

From the article:

"The Jerusalem Post reported on the discovery during an archaeological dig of ancient Islamic coins dated back some 1,300 years, shortly after the dawn of the Islamic faith during the Umayyad dynasty. The coins prominently feature a rather Judaic symbol — the menorah.

"The Jewish symbol which the Muslims were using was the menorah (the gold seven-branch candelabra from the Temple), which appeared on several coins and other early Islamic artifacts,” explained archaeologist Assaf Avraham of Bar-Ilan University, who teamed up with Peretz Reuven of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem."

So, the Jews and Muslims weren't always bitter enemies, it seems. The article continues:

"According to The Times of Israel, the pair of archaeologists believe these and other recent discoveries are evidence of a "dialogue” and peaceful co-existence of the Judaic and Islamic faiths in the early days of Islam — one they hope could be resumed today or in the near future.

"At the beginning of the Muslim rule, not only didn’t they object to the Jews, but they saw themselves as the continuation of the Jewish people,” Avraham explained."


As proof of his assertion that Muslims initially viewed themselves as a continuation of the Jewish people, Avraham pointed to an inscription that had been found in a 1,000-year-old mosque in the village of Nuba, which referenced the Temple of Solomon — now known as the Dome of the Rock — and spoke of the need to rebuild it.

Are Americans losing faith in the U.S. justice system?


This from Americans for Limited Government

By Printus LeBlanc

The U.S. Justice system is in trouble, not just the federal system, but the state and local systems as well. A disturbing trend of politically motivated prosecutions has emerged across the country. Congress has the role of oversight, but many Members, themselves former District Attorneys or U.S. Attorneys, seem hesitant to be critical of the Justice Department.It could be for fear of tarnishing theirown legacy while they were a prosecutor, or they don’t want to believe a club they belonged to has gone rotten. Either way, Congress must wake up take a hard look at the U.S. justice system from the point of view of someone being falsely accused by a legal behemoth with unlimited resources.

In one of the most egregious examples of the politicization of justice, the Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm launched a succession of John Doe investigations against his Republican enemies. John Doe investigations are special investigations intoalleged criminal activity thatare conducted in secret. In theinvestigations, a strict gag orderis imposed, and the targets are not allowed to speak about theinvestigation. It is important to note thata crime doesn’t have to be committedfor the investigation to take place, the statute is used to ascertain whether a crime has been committed and, if so, by whom.

Courts Overturn Trump Transvestite Ban in Military

Timothy Birdnow

Here's something I hadn't heard; activist judges have overtunrned the Trump policyreturning to the traditional rule that does not allow transvestites to serve in the military. And not only have they ordered Trump to restore the Obama policy, they have also ruled that the military must pay for sex change surgery for serving transvestites.

Got this from the Patriot Post:

"Then the judges stepped in, ordering the commander in chief to allow transgenders anyway, and to do so by Jan. 1. On Monday, U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, a Bill Clinton appointee, denied the Trump administration’s request to delay that order. Kollar-Kotelly had initially ruled that Trump’s order violates the Constitution’s equal protection guarantees. Moreover, back in November, U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis, a George H.W. Bush nominee, ruled that the administration can’t stop taxpayer funding for sex-reassignment surgery for these military members."

End excerpt.

The DOD plans to obey the court ruling.

What is the purpose of holding elections if the courts will simply overturn the results of them? Donald Trump was elected in no small part because of this radical revolutionary policy on the part of the Obama administration, and yet the courts simply overturned the attempt to return to a policy that had never been declared unconstitutional by any court prior to obama's policy change. This is legislating from the bench, to put it mildly. A better word is tyrannizing from the bench.

There is no right to serve in the military. My uncle was denied because he was 4f due to blindness in one eye. He wanted to join, but never dreamed of suing for admission. And that was an actual disability, as opposed to the issue of transgenderism, which is either a mental illness taht requires treatment OR is a choice which can be denied during the tenure of service (if the trans person really wants to serve that badly).

So, either way the Trump policy makes far more sense than what is being pushed by these activist judges or by the former Commander-in-Chief.

And that is what Trump is; Commander-in-Chief. He is not answerable to these courts, who have intervened where they have no authority.

I have a question; what would the courts have to say if a soldier was kicked out for being a Ku Klux Klansman and demanding the right to wear a bedsheet when he was off duty? Somehow i doubt they would support the Klansman's right to service. There is really no qualitative difference here. The argument will be that the Klansman is making a choice, one offensive to other soldiers. But that is precisely what the transvestites are doing, making a choice that is offensive in it's own way for it interferes with unit cohesion. And if it's not a choice it is a mental disorder. I don't know how many schizophrenics are serving in the army, but I imagine not many.

You can't have it both ways, yet the Left is always trying. And they largely succeed because the mainstream media refuse to report it.

Donald Trump shold order the military to refuse to obey this illegal order.

Mo. School Suspends Student for Debate Points that Hurt Muslim Feelings

Timothy Birdnow

A Missouri high school has suspended a student for saying bad things about Islamic extremism.

The College Fix dishes:

"Senior Alex Lonsdale, a member of Liberty High’s nationally ranked debate club, says he was just trying to have a friendly debate.

During his free period Oct. 17 at the public school near Kansas City, Lonsdale joined a spontaneous conversation among acquaintances about the nature of Islam.

He told The College Fix in a phone call Monday that he pointed to pro-terrorist sentiment among British Muslims, as indicated in polls by ICM Research for the 2016 Channel 4 documentary "What British Muslims Really Think.” The program was presented by the former chair of Britain’s Equality and Human Rights Commission, Trevor Phillips. more...
