The Wall of lies used by Democrat politicians

Dennis Prager:
Democrats and others on the left offer three reasons for their opposition to building a wall on America's southern border.

1. A wall is ineffective.

2. A wall is too expensive.

3. A wall is immoral.

Each one is false, so false as to constitute lies. So, the only question is: Do Democrats and others on the left believe these lies?

This question has plagued me all my life. Leftism is built on lies -- and has been since Lenin. That's why he named the Communist Party's lying newspaper "Pravda" ("truth").

Did my left-wing professors at Columbia University really believe the United States and the Soviet Union were equally responsible for the Cold War? Did they really believe one of the most genocidal regimes in history -- which butchered tens of millions its own people, starved as many as 4 million Ukrainians, enslaved seven Eastern European countries under totalitarian rule and created the monstrous North Korean communist regime -- was no more…

Trump makes it more difficult for Pelosi to leave town and avoid negotiations

Washington Examiner:
President Trump said Thursday he was canceling an upcoming overseas trip for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi due to the government shutdown, just a day after Pelosi threatened to cancel Trump's State of the Union address later this month.

Pelosi, D-Calif., was scheduled to travel to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan for seven days, but Trump informed Pelosi in a letter Thursday the trip was canceled. Trump indicated he was canceling Pelosi's access to a government or military plane for the trip, as he suggested Pelosi might still attend if she were to fly commercial.

"Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed," Trump wrote. "We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over."

“In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate,” Trump added. “I…

This is not the action of a Russian 'asset'

Washington Post:
Pentagon seeks to expand U.S. missile defense on scale not seen since ‘Star Wars’ initiative President Trump plans to roll out the new strategy on Thursday alongside military leaders at the Pentagon. This story suggests actions which Putin would and does oppose.    Will the Post opinion writers even read it?  Their Trump paranoia is making them look crazy.

Reaction to Trump statements by liberals is preposterous

John Podhoretz:
Every now and then, as I read supposedly hot news stories and the social media reaction to them, I feel ­myself growing a white goatee and having my white hair curl up on the sides of my head as I turn into Mugatu, the piano-key necktie designer from the movie “Zoolander,” while I shout: “Am I taking crazy pills?”

For example: The big story over the weekend that President Trump said in 2018 that he wanted to pull out of NATO. This is a story? Trump had described NATO as obsolete back in 2015.

Moreover, Trump has ­expressed deep skepticism of the value of alliances — any alliances — going back to 1987, when he took out an ad in the New York Times to warn we were being screwed by Japan.

The idea that Trump needed the Kremlin’s guidance to want to pull out of NATO or diss European allies is Mugatu-level preposterous.

The other crazy pill they are shoving down my throat is the story about how the FBI launched an investigation into Trump’s possible “collusion” with Russia follo…

Pelosi exposed as untruthful on reason for trying to postpone State of the Union address

Jeff Dunetz:
On Wednesday Nancy Pelosi the Speaker of the House who cares about politics more than the country sent a letter to the White House urging the president to re-schedule or cancel the coming State Of The Union address. Pelosi said the reason for the move was the Secret Service won’t be able to protect the president during the partial government shutdown. But the Secret Service called bull crap on Pelosi’s claim, not only are they ready to defend the President during the SOTU, but no Democrat asked them before Nancy Pelosi sent her letter.
... Many believe that her real message is that she will remain intransigent on solving the shutdown.  It means the Democrats are not willing to negotiate on the issue of border security and their opposition to a border fence they supported in the past.  Their bad faith opposition will continue.  They can't even be honest about why they are doing it.

Who is leaving their prayer rugs on border ranches?

Washington Examiner:
Ranchers and farmers near the U.S.-Mexico border have been finding prayer rugs on their properties in recent months, according to one rancher who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation by cartels who move the individuals.

The mats are pieces of carpet that those of the Muslim faith kneel on as they worship.

"There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico," the rancher said. "People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s what’s really scary. You don’t know what’s coming across. We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal. It’s not just Mexican nationals that are coming across."

Her comments were part of a larger conversation about how many in the region believe migrants are coming to the U.S. illegally from all over the world, not just Central America.

Border Patrol and its parent agency, Customs and Border Protection, did not respond to multiple interview requests. But CBP's Arizona re…

North Korea takes Trump's advice and develops beach resort?

Times:
It is intended to be one of the biggest and most luxurious resorts in Asia – in one of the most repressive countries on earth. Myongsasipri beach, personal project of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, is nearing completion.

Satellite images analysed by American experts reveal that work on the Wonsan-Kalma Tourist Zone, of which the beach forms a part, has intensified after a visit by Mr Kim in October, when he criticised the design of the resort.

The project demonstrates the emphasis placed by Mr Kim on economic, rather than just military, development, as well as his wish to open his country to more foreign visitors.

“The enormous investment . . . likely underscores a desire to demonstrate that North Korea, despite the economic sanctions in place,…
... When Trump met with Kim he made a presentation on turning a North Korean beach into a resort community.  It looks like Kim took him seriously and it is certainly a better use of North Korean resources than making ICBMs.

Texas prosecutes another vote fraud case

Breitbart:
Another Noncitizen Indicted for Voter Fraud in 2016, Says Texas AG

...
Late Tuesday, Paxton announced that Marites Canete Curry, a noncitizen Navarro County resident, was charged with one count of illegal voting following an investigation by the AG’s election fraud unit.
...
On a related note, the Public Interest Legal Foundation, a national election integrity law firm, filed a lawsuit last March against Harris County for allegedly failing to disclose noncitizen voter records as required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993, better known as the “Motor Voter” law. In May, Paxton urged a state court judge in a separate lawsuit to facilitate the foundation’s request after Harris County sued over an AG’s ruling that noncitizen records should be disclosed under Texas law. County officials in several large metropolitan areas have resisted compliance with the National Voter Registration Act.  There should be consequences for their failure to comply.

Poll shows Democrat position on abortion out of touch with voters

Daily Signal:
A poll released Tuesday just ahead of the 46th March for Life demonstration in Washington, D.C, shows the majority of Americans support tighter restrictions on abortion, and would even like to see the landmark Roe v. Wade decision “reinterpreted” to allow more restrictions.

The annual survey conducted by Marist in partnership with the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal organization, reveals that three-quarters of Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortion abroad, even though 55 percent of Americans polled identify as pro-choice.

Additionally, 75 percent of Americans—including those who identify as Republican (92 percent), Democrat (60 percent), and independent (78 percent)—said abortion should be limited to the first three months of pregnancy.
...
“The majority of Americans—in both parties—support legal restrictions on abortion,” Anderson added. “Two-thirds of Americans want Roe revisited to allow for state regulation of abortion or to ban it altogether. The m…

Ohr warned DOJ about dossier political bias before it went to FISA court

John Solomon:
When the annals of mistakes and abuses in the FBI’s Russia investigation are finally written, Bruce Ohr almost certainly will be the No. 1 witness, according to my sources.

The then-No. 4 Department of Justice (DOJ) official briefed both senior FBI and DOJ officials in summer 2016 about Christopher Steele’s Russia dossier, explicitly cautioning that the British intelligence operative’s work was opposition research connected to Hillary Clinton’s campaign and might be biased.

Ohr’s briefings, in July and August 2016, included the deputy director of the FBI, a top lawyer for then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and a Justice official who later would become the top deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller.

At the time, Ohr was the associate attorney general. Yet his warnings about political bias were pointedly omitted weeks later from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that the FBI obtained from a federal court, granting it permission to spy on whether the …

Navy SEAL team helped take down terrorists in Kenya attack that killed 14

Daily Mail:
Hero US Navy SEALs reportedly jumped in to fight a group of Islamist terrorists who launched an attack on a luxury hotel in Kenya on Tuesday, killing 14 people.

Sources say the SEALs were called in by Kenyan Special Forces in need of back-up after five Islamic Terrorists entered the Nairobi hotel armed with a grenade, guns and a bomb.

US officials have neither confirmed nor denied the presence of SEALs during the attack. It is unclear how many may have been there.

The terror attack at a hotel and office complex on Tuesday afternoon saw four gunmen kill 14 people, including a 40-year-old California businessman Jason Spindler, after detonating car bombs outside.

The Navy SEAL presence was first reported by a source who told The Sun they were with a British Special Air Service, SAS, member.

'(The SAS member) was there training and mentoring Kenyan forces when the shout went up, so they went in,' the insider said. 'During the operation he fired off some roun…

Chicom plant experiment on moon fails when temperatures drop to -170 centigrade at sunset

Guardian:
The appearance of a single green leaf hinted at a future in which astronauts would grow their own food in space, potentially setting up residence at outposts on the moon or other planets. Now, barely after it had sprouted, the cotton plant onboard China’s lunar rover has died.

The plant relied on sunlight at the moon’s surface, but as night arrived at the lunar far side and temperatures plunged as low as -170C, its short life came to an end.

Prof Xie Gengxin of Chongqing University, who led the design of the experiment, said its short lifespan had been anticipated. “Life in the canister would not survive the lunar night,” Xie said.
... Night time on that area of the moon is a long one.  It lasts for about two weeks.  Apparently, the plant died well before that period.  Scientists should not be that surprised.  The harsh conditions are one of the reasons it is a barren wasteland.

Russians say US media claims that Trump is a Russian agent are 'stupid'

Politico:
Top Kremlin officials are scoffing at the idea that President Donald Trump is working as a Russian agent, dismissing the notion as “nonsense” and blasting U.S. journalists for their attention to the issue.

“That’s stupid,” said Yuri Ushakov, a foreign policy aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg News. “How can the president of the United States be an agent of another country? Just think about that.”

The White House was hit with a pair of bombshell reports over the weekend that involve Trump and Putin, including one from The New York Times that revealed the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into Trump in 2017 over whether he was wittingly or unwittingly working on Russia’s behalf.

Another report, from The Washington Post, revealed that Trump has sought to conceal the details of his meetings with Putin from members of his administration, possibly in an effort to avoid leaks.

Trump this week rejected both reports, telling reporters Monday…

Liberals blocking pipelines and the Jones Act lead to imports of LNG despite US surpluses

Bloomberg:
Why the U.S. Imports LNG Despite Its Gas-Export Boom: QuickTake The anti-energy left is blocking pipelines in the Northeast that could provide domestic natural gas where it is needed most.  Then there is the Jones Act which requires that shipping between states be done on American owned boats with American crews and all the LNG carriers or foreign. 

Both situations are self-defeating policies that help the Russians more than the US.  BTW, Trump supports the pipeline expansion that is being blocked by Democrats like Andrew Cuomo.  Is Cuomo a Russian agent? 

No, he is just a guy who has embraced the anti-energy left and is harming the New York economy with his intransigence.

Turkey's despotic leader calls basketball player a terrorist

ESPN:
Turkish prosecutors are seeking an international arrest warrant for New York Knicks center Enes Kanter, accusing him of membership in a terror organization.

Sabah newspaper says the Istanbul chief prosecutor's office had also prepared an extradition request for the NBA player.

The newspaper says prosecutors are seeking an Interpol "Red Notice" citing Kanter's ties to Fethullah Gulen, who is blamed for a failed coup in 2016, and accusing him of providing financial support to his group. Officials at the prosecutor's office could not be reached for comment.
Kanter reacted to the report in a tweet Wednesday.

Does 'white privilege' include those who sound white?

Washington Post:
A CNN analyst called out a Fox News contributor for ‘white privilege.’ He’s black. “I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” radio host David Webb told CNN legal analyst Areva Martin.









Webb is a smart guy who comes across as an intelligent person.   What this episode also demonstrates is that educated people have an advantage that has nothing to do with their race or "privilege." 

Fighting a criminal insurgency in Afghanistan's seat of government

NY Times:
...

Under a new interior minister, Amrullah Saleh, and an earlier influx of new security commanders, including General Roshandil, the authorities have begun a concerted effort to restore order in Kabul and to reinforce police forces that have been crushed by record casualties and weakened by a reputation for corruption, abuse and acting as the extended arm of warlords as well as the elite.

Last fall, police and intelligence forces began a major push against Islamic State and Taliban cells in and around Kabul. It was a campaign that has been credited by American and Afghan officials with reducing the number of attacks, though insurgents still manage to sneak in large amounts of explosives for truck bombs and daring raids.

Now, the police forces are focused on dismantling what they call a “pyramid of crime” in the capital.

Officials say they have identified about 1,500 people in the city who are suspected of criminal activity, and who are thought to own a total of nearly 30,000…

The death spasms of the 'Russian collusion' investigation

Julie Kelly:
...
But the reality is that the Times article and resulting hysteria are the death spasms for Trump-Russia election collusion. The public now is being told not to expect any earth shattering surprises out of Team Mueller. ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl admitted over the weekend that Mueller confidants warned the final report, due shortly, will be “anticlimactic.” If that happens, the media will be further discredited as reliable, skeptical, and honest brokers of the truth and instead will be mocked as the hostile, reactionary propagandists that they are. They are not just accomplices in the biggest political scandal in U.S. history: they are co-conspirators.

In fact, the Times story is just another example of the media’s Trump-Russia spin machine; it was alarming not for what it did report but for the key details it twisted, misrepresented and/or omitted. In the nearly 2,000-word account, one name does not appear: Andrew McCabe.

The Times failed to mention that when t…

In less than a week Trump can start laying off government workers who are not getting paid

Thomas Lifson:
Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy? In only five more days of the already "longest government shutdown in history" (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more.

Don't believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off? Well, in bureaucratese, a layoff is called a RIF – a Reduction in Force – and of course, it comes with a slew of civil service protections. But, if the guidelines are followed, bureaucrats can be laid off – as in no more job. It is all explained by Michael Roberts here (updated after the beginning of the partial shutdown):

A reduction in force is a thoughtful and systematic elimination of positions. For all practical purposes, a government RIF is the same thing as a layoff. ...

Criminals not likely to buy guns at gun store or gun show

Jeff Dunetz:
The Department of Justice just released a study asking criminals where they got the guns they had with them when committing the crime that put them in prison. In 2016, they polled 287,000 prisoners in state and federal prisons where they had with them when committing the crime 90 percent of them “did not obtain it from a retail source,” and less than one percent obtained it from a gun show. Although not the purpose of the study it does demonstrate the ineffectiveness of the new gun regulations coming out of the anti-gun lobby.
... I suspect they buy them from other criminals or they steal them.   The study does suggest that proposed new regulations of guns would be ineffective in stopping gun crime.  They are more likely to inconvenience the innocent.

Texas based company to expand export facility to supply China with $72 billion in ethane gas

Fuel Fix:
Houston-based American Ethane announced plans Monday to expand an existing Neches River terminal to support an ethane-export facility with capacity to supply about $72 billion in gas to China, a first for a U.S. company.

The project also could create 1,000 construction jobs initially and as many as 200 permanent full-time jobs, the Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce projects.

American Ethane CEO John W. Houghtaling said the company was willing to commit to the project because China has signaled its willingness to grant permits to the company’s three business partners based in that country.

“Ethane has never been imported into China,” Houghtaling said during a groundbreaking Monday. He added, “We weren’t sure how many permits China was going to grant, but we recently got indication that all of our partners would be granted permits. That means we can build the terminal large, all at one time.”

China is losing the trade war with Trump

Forbes:
China is still the world’s No. 2 economy and is still the monster of emerging markets, but regardless of those bonafides, Xi Jinping’s country is losing the trade war in nearly every way imaginable.

The arrest of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Canada last month for breaking U.S. sanctions law, followed by the firing of Huawei sales executive Wang Weijing in Poland last week shows China can be a bad actor, exactly as Washington believes. The Poland story centers around spying allegations, where Wang allegedly sought trade secrets from the government. Huawei’s latest bad headlines show how China tech companies may have risen to prominence by copying foreign technologies in joint venture deals or through white-collar criminal actions such as intellectual property theft and corporate espionage. Huawei is one of China’s most important, private tech firms. It rivals Cisco Systems worldwide.

Thanks in part to Huawei, China is getting beat on the public relations front in the trade war.

The 'Russian interference' scam was a pretext to criminal attempts to deny Trump the election and the Presidency

IBD:
It's now beyond any reasonable doubt that Obama administration minions launched an all-out effort to destroy, first, President Trump's presidential campaign and, when that failed, his presidency. The only question is, knowing the truth, will the Justice Department charge these people with crimes?

The whole concern over "Russian interference" with the 2016 election was little more than a smokescreen for a much wider effort to go after Donald Trump. And that's not us talking, but the New York Times.

A Times report titled "F.B.I. Opened Inquiry into Whether Trump was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia" shows that the investigation into Donald Trump for the non-crime of "collusion" with Russia's government began before the election. The inquiry aimed at stopping Trump — and not, really, at determining whether Russians interfered in our presidential election.

The actual investigation by the Justice Department and FBI began during the ele…

US Navy seeks to thwart Chinese strategy by disbursing smaller robot ships to challenge control of area China seeks to deny access to

Defense News:
The world’s largest navy has spent the last few years feeling like it was being put in check.

China and Russia have heavily invested in anti-access technologies aimed at holding its main force-projection assets — aircraft carriers — at risk. Now the U.S. Navy and the upper ranks of the military are preparing to take back control of the game board, and it’s looking to unmanned technologies to help.

The U.S. surface fleet has for the past few years sought to flip the script on actors such as China. The fleet aimed to move from a role of simply defending the carrier to going on the offensive.

The goal was to spread out over a wide area to strain Chinese intelligence and reconnaissance assets and thereby exercise a degree of sea control in places such as the South and East China seas that China seeks to deny with long-range, anti-ship missiles and an ever-growing fleet.
...
Enter: the rise of the machines.

The paradigm shift is moving the fleet away from platforms like the A…

This is not the global warming Al Gore and friends promised

Washington Post:
The polar vortex has fractured, and the eastern U.S. faces a punishing stretch of winter weather

This past weekend’s storm, which dumped 10 inches of snow in both St. Louis and Washington, may have been one of the first indicators of a shift to harsher winter conditions that could peak in February.
I know they try to cover for this by changing the name to "climate change" but all their models predicted rising temperatures.  And when it is hot they call it the "new normal."  When it is cold they revert to calling it weather which is different from climate.  The double talk never ends.  These people still can't explain which of their assumptions are invalid when their projections are not met.  No one should call it science.

One of the curious wonders of America is why Wall Street supports Democrats

Washington Post:
Maxine Waters takes the reins of a powerful House committee, making Wall Street nervous The California Democrat would have broad influence over the financial world in her role as head of the House Financial Services Committee. She could slow the deregulation efforts of the Trump administration. This cannot come as a surprise to those on Wall Street.  She bragged about taking over this committee before the election and promised to use her power against them.  It is just passing strange that Wall Street donates so much money to Democrats.  It could be part of a protection racket, but in this case, it appears that there is no protection from liberal ideologues.

Court backs Democrats use of illegal aliens in census giving them undeserved House seats

NY Times:
Court Blocks Trump Administration From Asking About Citizenship in Census Critics had accused who the Trump administration of trying to turn the census into a tool to advance Republican political fortunes. It also demonstrates the real reason why Democrats oppose real border security.  They want illegals to come to the US and they want them counted in the census in order to gain House seats and replace their shrinking political base.  This ruling is a bastardization of the founding principles behind the census.

Democrat collusion with the Deep State to launch a bogus investigation of Trump

Michael Walsh:
In trying to lob a Molotov cocktail into the Trump White House, the New York Timeslast Friday succeeded only in blowing off yet another of its appendages. Fixated on its manic desire to destabilize the lawfully elected government of the United States (at what point does the "Resistance" become active sedition?), the media has chosen to fight as down and dirty as possible, and in so doing hit a new low:

F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia

In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.

The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted …

Public growing weary of Democrat push of Russian collusion hoax

IBD:
Most people think President Trump's critics are trying to use Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation to delegitimize the 2016 elections, the latest IBD/TIPP Poll finds. And a plurality thinks the FBI investigation into Trump's alleged ties to Russia was meant to rein him in.

These findings come in the wake of a New York Times story Friday that claimed the FBI had opened a counterintelligence probe into Trump several months into his presidency

The probe began, the Times says, days after Trump fired then FBI Director James Comey and was meant to determine whether Trump was a Russian agent.

Trump blasted the report, and said that the question of his being a Russian agent is "the most insulting thing I've ever been asked."

The IBD/TIPP Poll found that 51% agree that "the president's opponents are using the ongoing special counsel investigation into alleged Trump-Russia collusion as a way to delegitimize the 2016 election."

Antifa like group invading the privacy of conservative students at University of Texas

PJ Media:
More than 30 students at the University of Texas have been doxxed by a student antifa group, typically for the crime of joining conservative clubs or being spotted at lectures held by conservative speakers.

The doxxers — calling themselves Austin Autonomous Media (AAM) — are a small collective of UT students. Since fall 2018, AAM members have snuck into conservative club meetings, taken photos of attendees, and posted students’ names and emails online.

The AAM also typically posts students’ phone numbers and employers. For example, one young woman was doxxed for the crime of attending a pro-Kavanaugh rally. "Call [employer redacted] to get her fired: (512) XXX-XXX" the post said.

Saurabh Sharma, 21, is the president of the UT chapter of Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT). Many of Sharma’s cabinet members have been doxxed, and he says the fallout has been immense. (PJ Media is not linking to the doxxing posts to protect students’ privacy).

Democrats bitterly cling to their own bigots

Washington Examiner:

The Democrat politicians and their floating definition of 'racist'

Erick Erickson:
Democrats across America are currently declaring racist the very policies they supported under Barack Obama. It was not racist or immoral when he decided to add border barriers. It was not racist or immoral when George W. Bush did. It was not racist or immoral when Bill Clinton did. But Democrats are so invested in believing the worst about President Trump that they are willing to reject the very policies they supported only a few years ago.

A secure border with barriers to keep non-citizens from crossing into American territory without permission is not an issue of morality or racism. It is an issue of national integrity. The party that is fine with illegal aliens casting votes is not a party committed to national integrity and sovereignty.
... Too many Democrats use epithets and insults instead of logic to argue their political differences.  That is why they use bogus claims of racist or compare people they disagree with to Hitler.   They really should try to make th…
