The United States coup d’é·tat is well underway

The vultures are circling. Flynn’s demise is only the beginning. The coup is underway. Make no mistake. Morning Joe is over the top this morning. Hysterical. The drums are beating. Reality has been lost. The coup is underway. Bloomberg has this:

…He was also a fat target for Democrats. Remember Flynn’s breakout national moment last summer was when he joined the crowd at the Republican National Convention from the dais calling for Hillary Clinton to be jailed.

In normal times, the idea that U.S. officials entrusted with our most sensitive secrets would selectively disclose them to undermine the White House would alarm those worried about creeping authoritarianism. Imagine if intercepts of a call between Obama’s incoming national security adviser and Iran’s foreign minister leaked to the press before the nuclear negotiations began? The howls of indignation would be deafening.

In the end, it was Trump’s decision to cut Flynn loose. In doing this he caved in to his political and bureaucratic opposition. Nunes told me Monday night that this will not end well. “First it’s Flynn, next it will be Kellyanne Conway, then it will be Steve Bannon, then it will be Reince Priebus,” he said. Put another way, Flynn is only the appetizer. Trump is the entree. Read the whole thing at Bloomberg

Trump has these top Democrats who voted for the border wall to thank

Who would have thought we have so many Dems to thank so that Trump can go ahead with that big beautiful wall down Mexico way. These are the folks who voted “aye” in 2006 and still had some common sense.

President Donald Trump will be able to order the construction of a wall on the Mexico border Wednesday with the stroke of a pen, because of a 2006 law passed with the help of Democrats including Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.

If Trump and Republicans follow through, a number of top Democrats will find they inadvertently handed Trump the border wall they now oppose. Their only option to block the construction would be to shut down the government over the matter by blocking the spending bill, a strategy they have consistently mocked and derided Republicans for using in the past.

In addition to then Sens. Obama, Biden and Clinton, 64 House Democrats and 23 Senate Democrats voted for the wall in 2006. Many of them are still in Congress, including newly-established Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Other Democrats in the Senate who voted for the wall in 2006 are Sens. Barbara Boxer (CA), Sherrod Brown (OH — then in the House), Tom Carper (DE), Dianne Feinstein (CA), Barbara Mikulski (MD), Bill Nelson (FL), Debbie Stabenow (MI), and Ron Wyden (OR).

There are also a number of Democrat representatives still in the House who voted for the bill: Sanford Bishop (GA), Corrine Brown (FL), Michael Capuano (MA), Jim Cooper (TN), Jim Costa (CA), Peter DeFazio (OR), Steve Israel (NY), Ron Kind (WI), Daniel Lipinski (IL), Stephen Lynch (MA), Carolyn Maloney (NY), Bill Pascrell Jr. (NJ), Collin Peterson (MN), C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (MD), Tim Ryan (OH), and Adam Smith (WA).

Former Democrat Rep. Barney Frank and now-disgraced former Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner also voted for the bill. Read more: Libertarian Republic

Former Black Panther Mason Weaver Slams Rep John Lewis

If you missed this take down that occurred last night with Tucker Carlson, here is your chance. I have to add of all people a former Black Panther. An honest man who tells it like it is.

John Lewis wants to oppress black America’. In this explosive interview on Tucker ‘Carlson Tonight’. Former Black Panther party member Mason Weaver does not mince his words by saying that John Lewis is an illegitimate Congressman who keeps getting richer while the black people in his district and in the US get poorer. Mr Weaver describes John Lewis as a democratic representative ‘in their pocket’, working for the democratic interests. – Tucker Carlson Tonight – Fox News.

Gloom, Despair and Agony for the John Lewis and the Democrats

In an exclusive interview for “Meet the Press,” Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said he believes Donald Trump’s election is illegitimate because of Russian interference in last year’s election.

Hee Haw has something to say about the state of affairs.

Time to let go John. The times they are a changin.

The hounds of hell descend on Trump

The bull in the china shop in the form of Trump broke a few egos. The method of cleaning up the intelligence community apparently will be full throttle. So let’s go. Bring in on. I give you a couple of responses and warnings that are suppose to have the Trumpster shaking in his boot.

In a final attempt to undermine the incoming administration Senator John McCain in collusion with the FBI presented the fake news organization known as mccain-sorosbuzzfeed with a fake story accusing Russia of having damaging sexual information on President-Elect Donald Trump. CNN then ran with the story in an attempt to deceive the American people into believing that the incoming President engages in degenerate behavior. The President-Elect responded this morning in his first press conference since winning the election calling CNN “Fake News” he also responded on twitter questioning if we live in Nazi Germany.

Schumer: Trump ‘really dumb’ for attacking intelligence agencies …

 Jan 3, 2017 – “Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer told MSNBC’s …

Democrats lose one more State Legislature won’t be able to stop Constitutional Amendments

News Alert gave us this story to think about. We hear about the massive losses of the Democrats thanks to Obama, but could this be the real gift? Term limits come to mind as my first fix. The ultimate draining the swamp.

Democrats now control only 13 state legislatures (26%). If they lose 1 more they fall below the % needed to stop constitutional amendments.

Trump ‘The Art of the Comeback’ writes ‘I’m worth minus 9 Million’

Oh this was really hard to figure out Trump and his taxes. Just read the book and the Donald talks about being in the negative. Real spiffy for the NY Times getting that plain manila envelope in the mail with his tax returns and figuring out he probably wrote it off thus no taxes. Clever.Very clever.

Trump
The Art of the Comeback


By DONALD J. TRUMP with KATE BOHNER

Times Books

One day, while walking down Fifth Avenue, hand in hand with Marla, I pointed across the street to a man holding a cup and with a Seeing Eye dog. I asked, “Do you know who that is?”

Marla said to me: “Yes, Donald. He’s a beggar. Isn’t it too bad? He looks so sad!”

I said, “You’re right. He’s a beggar, but he’s worth about $900 million more than me.” She looked at me and said, “What do you mean, Donald? How could he possibly be worth $900 million more than you?”

I said, “Let’s assume he’s worth nothing (only from the standpoint of dollars)–I’m worth minus $900 million.”

This was an interesting period of time, because as I told the story I realized in my own mind that what I was saying was true. I also began to realize that I had better get back to work!

My net worth had been in the billions. By the spring of 1990 I was deeply in the red; my empire was hemorrhaging value. When the Supreme Court upheld the retroactivity provisions in 1992, I knew that not only for me, but for my colleagues as well, prospects were grim. Even for the awesome Olympia & York, headed by the powerful Reichmann family, the future looked bleak.
