February 15, 2017


Let's compare what President Trump has accomplished since the inauguration (with that enormous crowd!) with what congressional Republicans have done.

In the past three weeks, Trump has: staffed the White House, sent a dozen Cabinet nominees to the Senate, browbeat Boeing into cutting its price on a government contract, harangued American CEOs into keeping their plants in the United States, imposed a terrorist travel ban, met with foreign leaders and nominated a Supreme Court justice, among many other things.

(And still our hero finds time to torment the media with his tweets!)

What have congressional Republicans been doing? Scrapbooking?

More than 90 percent of congressional Republicans kept their jobs after the 2016 election, so you can cross "staffing an entire branch of government" off the list. Only the Senate confirms nominees, which they've been doing at a snail's pace, so they've got loads of free time -- and the House has no excuse at all.

Where's the Obamacare repeal? Where are the hearings featuring middle-class Americans with no health insurance because it was made illegal by Obamacare?

The House passed six Obamacare repeals when Obama was president and there was no chance of them being signed into law. Back then, Republicans were full of vim and vigor! But the moment Trump became president, the repeals came to a screeching halt.

After the inauguration (gigantic!), House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put out a plan for repealing Obamacare ... in 200 days. They actually gave their legislative agenda this inspiring title: "The Two Hundred Day Plan.”

TWO HUNDRED DAYS!

What was in the last six Obamacare repeals? If we looked, would we find "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" carefully typed out 1 million times? Seriously, what does Paul Ryan's day look like?

This is the Silence of the Lambs Congress. They're utterly silent, emerging from the House gym or their three-hour lunches only to scream to the press about Trump.






To the delight of the media, these frightened little lambs are appalled by nearly everything Trump does. They've been especially throaty about Trump's temporary travel ban from seven terrorist nations -- as designated by the Obama administration (and by everybody else who hasn't been in a deep freeze in a Finnish crevasse for the past decade).

Just like the six Obamacare repeals, a refugee ban was already written and passed by one house of Congress. Then suddenly: the Silence of the Lambs. McConnell and Ryan are hiding under their desks, as Trump is being attacked from every side.

Way, way back, 15 long months ago, congressional Republicans didn't have a problem with a total ban on Syrian and Iraqi refugees. Not for a mere three months like Trump's order -- but permanently, unless the director of the FBI, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and the director of national intelligence personally certified that a particular refugee posed no danger to the U.S.

That bill passed the House with an overwhelming, veto-proof majority, including 47 Democrats. Then it went to the Senate to die.

But when President Trump imposed a comparatively mild three-month ban on immigrants from Syria, Iraq and five other terrorist nations, the same Republicans who had voted for a limitless ban on refugees whiled away their days calling reporters to denounce Trump.

A little more than a year ago, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, bragged in a press release that he had introduced the House's refugee ban, calling it a bill that would "protect Americans from ISIS.”

But when it came to Trump's three-month pause, McCaul told the Post that Trump's order "went too far.”

I guess that ISIS problem just sort of faded away. (Or maybe we should check with Mrs. McCaul, inasmuch as it's her family money that makes Rep. McCaul one of the richest members of Congress.)

Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa., who voted for the House's permanent refugee ban, demanded that Trump immediately rescind his travel ban, babbling on about the "many, many nuances of immigration policy" -- which he must have learned about on one of his congressional jaunts to a Las Vegas casino.

Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., said that Trump's order "overreaches and undermines our constitutional system." Evidently, he was suddenly struck by the realization that it's "not lawful to ban immigrants on the basis of nationality," despite having voted to ban refugees on the basis of nationality just 15 months earlier. (I'm OK with this, provided the Syrians, Somalis and Yemenis are sent to live on Justin's street after being told about his support for gay marriage.)

Sens. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., and Ben Sasse, R-Neb., both rushed to The Washington Post with this refreshingly original point: NOT ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS! Why, thank you, senators! Where would the GOP be without you?

The Post also quoted spokesmen -- spokesmen! -- for Republican Sens. Mike Lee of Utah, Rob Portman of Ohio and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina complaining about not having been briefed on Trump's order. The senators themselves were far too busy to talk to the press because they were -- wait, what were they doing again? Words With Friends? Decoupage?

Since the election, Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., has been mostly occupied polishing his anti-Trump quotations to get a pat on the head from an admiring media. He complained about Trump's order, saying it was "poorly implemented" and that he had to find out about it from reporters. (I wonder why.)

This is the moment we've been waiting for our entire lives, but Republicans in Congress refuse to do the people's will. Their sole, driving obsession is to see Trump fail.

I am not presently calling for these useless, narcissistic, Trump-bashing Republicans to be defeated in their re-election bids, but they're on my Watch List. To be cleared, they can start by getting off the phone with The Washington Post and passing one of those six Obamacare repeal bills.

Kinda had a sneaking suspicion that they were always onboard with the Obama Admin and the Global Elite. WE are taking names! We voted them majority in the house, they needed the Senate.. gave them a majority in the Senate.. they needed the Presidency.. now they have the Presidency ..

I tell you what they are getting next is the boot and we'll find someone who will carry out their DUTY. (I met one of these Elitist once.. John Cornyn.. I wouldn't piss on him if he was on fire.. the disdain emanating from him for having to be in the presence of one of his subjects was palatable! (and I taken a bath that week I'm sure!)

Silence of the lambs.......


It creates an image in my mind of Starling /FBI (Jodie Foster) Looking for Buffalo Bill (not clinton) by draining the deep swamp...

So much fear/reaction from democrat and republican lambs .....what is in this deep swamp ???!!!!!there must be a lot of monsters hiding in the swamp to create so much fear...Democracy appears to be under attack ....

We had a reputable news agency , giving questions to one presidential candidate prior to the debate .(whats the point of a debate ...is this just fake news or was the news agency attempting to influence the us elections....sounds like a crime may have been committed )

Record number of Presidential Legislation passed by a departing president (Obama)....was this a distraction ....what is buried in this swam, created over the past 8 years ?????

The US abstained from a UN vote to hand back the Golan heights and gaza strip to Palestine (what a way to treat your ally ). Israel is now an illegal occupation force based on international law, which cant be revoked .....was this a distraction ...what monsters are hiding in this swamp......????!!!!

US Troops moved to the Baltic states (at great cost to the Clinton foundation ...sorry I meant the us tax payer).If the Russians had reacted we all
would have had a pretty serious war (with all that's happening in Ukraine)...they ,the Russians, tend to react first and think later .....maybe Flynn read the tea leaves and warned the Russians, that it may be a presidential departing shot/distraction......what is in this swamp???? ......cries the lambs as they, democrat lambs ,smash the windows of the buildings , following Clinton losing the election....


so many problems created for the trump administration by the previous one(too many to list here )......what is in this swamp? ....its like a festering sore!!!???

Letting your guard down .....

There was an interview with trump which the democrats used in the elections to cast aspersions on the character of the presidential
candidate ....the interviewer used a cheap trick to get him to relax and talk about women, as most men do in private ...
it wasn't a big deal .....they dug it up from 5 years ago and used it against him .....I guess the moral of the story is...
you have to be careful with these interviewers ...they are masters of the art of trickery ......don't let you guard....never relax with
them (especially the Scotish ones who appear to be on your side ,this gets you to relax) they do their research, tap into your brain and, based on their agenda, can paint you as a racist , sexist and use it , when they need to dig it up in the future etc etc .......


just a few of my thoughts (there is much more to the above)

How deep is this swamp...its mind boggling ??????

to AC ...keep up the good work .....hold the line :wink:

We need to establish a list of Republicans that have been hindering progress and keep a running tally of their opposition.
Then prior to election time publish it and push for another choice for representation. Create a "Shame" list and hold their feet to the fire on a national scope and in their home district. The "Coulter Report".

What can we do to help? Call/write congressmen and senators? Mine are in California, not much I can do with that! I can't believe Paul Ryan won re-election, there must be a way Paul Nehlan can get more traction going before the next election. All any of them work for is re-election, like any politician they will say and do anything to get that, but not do their job. Sickening. Love you Ann!

A year or so into the first Trump Administration these "lambs" are going to realize, to their horror, that not only is The President Donald not going away, he is not slowing down, and he may start dropping hints that he will campaign AGAINST any "lambs" who face Conservative opponents in the 2018 primaries or general election. I don't expect any formal declarations but the word will "leak" out. If that does not bestir these "lambs," they're already dead. Bury them before they stink up anything else.

Sometimes you have to hang a few to motivate the rest. :wave: :wave:

Book of Revelations (For muslims and non christians ,its from a book called the Bible)

Late last year I went to the super (Morrisons in the UK) , got back to my car and the windows on my car were down
(electric windows, made no sense) ..... this went on for three weeks .Turns out the ECU on my car got hacked.
On the third occasion , there was a hand written note on the seat , which said , " Its in the book of Revelation, stupid"

With nothing better to do and completely confused by this surreal note ,I googled all sorts of stuff on the internet and finally came up with a book by one Ann Coulter "Demonic"......
Eureka ....I compared the text in her book with the book of " Revelation " based on an algorithm (its a simple code),too dangerous to put on here though (SQL for any programmers out there) .....its scary what It translated into ....revelation after revelation ,after revelation.
These are only a few of the revelations out of the good book (I am christian so I checked with the one on high before doing this , and he said ,the bible isn't copywrite) :-
The Golden haired Norse Viking will sit on the throne .....four viking princesses
called Ivana ,Anna, Kellianna and Katehop who lives in another kingdom, will be the only ones to predict his coming , but the liberians will laugh. Much money would be lost in the market place because of this over confidence. Many buildings would be attacked, rape and pillage. Many Bankers will be beaten in the market place , as the invaders shout ali baba ali baba.
The Draw-bridge in many western kingdoms will be lowered by their leaders to allow the Trojan Hordes from the south to enter into the sleeping cities (shouting Marli Marli ,while we slept (not too clever) like monsters from some deep swamp. The daughters of Alex the great will scream from the Greek walls , "Someone help us , we did not attack them , I cannot leave my house , my children cannot go to school" as the hordes marched through the streets . "All our men have gone to Deutcheland to find work with the northern traitor , queen merkelinia , someone help us". The hordes will shout, in a strange tongue "shut up woman , cant you see you been invaded, are you racist ,marli , marli, ali baba ali baba"
The new norse king will build a wall in the south to trap the resident hordes and call it The Almoe(not sure what that means,ill have to check the algorithm again)
The predators from the east will paint their flying machines and ships white, to hide them in the clouds, while the hordes of immigrants do their dirty work, diluting , distracting the resident population , patiently waiting for their time to take over.

The countrys in the north will become over-populated by the hordes .

Many island states will appear overnight in the sea , in preparation for war.

Many false prophets will fake their news (and passportss )based on their agenda and their new owners.

Many women will surrender to the invaders after they are dragged off their stage and will threaten to destroy the white house of the new viking king with princess Kelliana and her children inside.

The kingdoms in the east will prepare their canons but will mis-fire .....destroying themselves

A welshman from the anglo kingdom ,called jones will arm himself with info to fight for his kingdom .He will dance in the streets with fake jews ( not sure why this came out as fake jews , thought it should be fake news) singing, la la land . The trojan hordes will try to silence his singing as they try to make him look crazy. (Havent a clue who this is).

A dark ship will rise up from the Phoenix with many lights sending coded messages to the foo fighters ...princess key tie (not sure who this is ) will put it all in her book as she decodes the lights in the sky communicating with the norse gods of war .

If anyone can make sense of the above Biblical revelations, feel free .its a prototype app so the above definitley not accurate.

It passes the time .....mmm

The only reason the RINOs passed bills that created the illusion they were trying to do the things they were elected to do is because they knew damn well their bills had no chance of getting past the Senate, and certainly no chance of being signed by Obama. It was all a bluff. Now that they know any such bills would actually have a good chance of becoming law their true colors are showing and they want nothing to do with it. The media can't control Trump, but apparently it still controls the spineless weasels in the House and Senate.

Wow ......its DEMONIC :dgrin: revelations again (see previous post)......its like a piece in a jigsaw puzzle........Just saw on twitter, something about fake news....someone called Jones ......(this is spooky ) :oo:

I wonder if he is Welsh (see previous post it came true, the revelations ....something about funding being taken away from Jones (Its a popular Welsh name), makes no sense to me here in the UK ......(see Demonic revelation above) . :dgrin:

Thanks AC keep up the good work , you started with a can of immigration worms and now swampees are all running scared...honestly ,always on your side ......I see someone, forensic auditor just pulled the plug on the foxy management too .

The Brexiteers are also fighting back here in the UK ( there is a pattern with the US/EU/UK. research it , its almost as if its all planned/engineered ), even Tony (after making millions on speeches )has crawled out of the can of worms and wants the UK to hold another referendum on Brexit (believe it or not , there goes democracy :cry3: ,I hear you say) ....What is going on :shrug: !!!!!

Amen to you ! You speak well and wisely of the way this site should evolve for maximum effectiveness . Compartmentalizing and
keeping the facts on separate issues in front of us would be a gift that keeps on giving .
Hope the by the people for the people staff here will take the lead and help organize the people .
