75% approve Trump SOTU speech; Democrats suck lemon

A CBS News scientific poll following President Trump’s State of the Union (SOTU) speech last night, found Americans overwhelmingly approved of it.
CBS News said the poll was “based on 1,178 interviews conducted on the internet of U.S. residents who watched the State of the Union Address. Panelists were previously interviewed on January 29-30, 2018 to indicate whether they planned to watch the address, and if they were willing to be re-interviewed after the address.”
The poll results (Daily Wire) (h/t FOTM reader Big Lug):

  • 75% approve; 25% disapprove.
  • Trump’s speech was approved by 97% of Republicans, 72% of Independents, 43% of Democrats.
  • 80% said President Trump was trying to unite, instead of divide, the country.
  • On how the speech made them feel:
    • 65% “proud”
    • 35% “safer”
    • 21% “angry”
    • 14% “scared”.

Meanwhile, here are some reactions from Demonrats:

(1) From the lunatic fringe

(2) Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer

(3) Sen. Bernie Sanders

(4) Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Illinois)

Triggered by chants of USA! USA!”, Gutierrez stormed out of the House chamber:

(5) Congressional Black Caucus

(6) CNN’s Joy Reid


TV station KTVU in the San Francisco Bay Area Belly of the Liberal Beast has a poll on Twitter. Below are the results 5 minutes before this post was published. Note the large % of people who didn’t watch.

Demorats launch "A Better Deal" platform. Their top agenda item: corporate mergers

a better deal
Because corporate mergers are what Americans are truly worried about. Good luck with that platform demorats!
From MSN: Democrats rolled out a new economic platform Monday in hopes of winning over President Donald Trump‘s populist base with promises to take on big businesses, lower the cost of prescription drugs and create jobs.
The campaign — “A Better Deal” — is intended as a counterpunch to the president’s frequent criticism of the lackluster recovery and stagnant wages under President Barack Obama and Trump’s vow to restore the economy to 3 percent annual growth. Democrats are also searching for ways to reconnect with working-class voters whose deep frustration with their own economic prospects helped drive their support for Trump.
“It is an ambitious economic agenda that represents a renewed Democratic commitment to the hard-working men and women across the United States who have been left out and left behind for too long,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi wrote in a Washington Post op-ed.
Among Democrats’ top agenda items is greater scrutiny of corporate mergers, including tougher standards that incorporate consumer privacy, product quality and the impact on wages and jobs. Democrats are also seeking post-merger reviews and greater enforcement authority.
Those responsibilities would be carried out by a new competition advocate that Democrats have nicknamed the “Trust Buster.” One of the deals that could be targeted is AT&T (T)’s $85 billion bid for Time Warner (TWX), which is awaiting regulatory approval. Other sectors that could wind up in the crosshairs include the beer industry, airlines and eyeglasses.
“We will revisit our antitrust laws to ensure that the economic freedom of all Americans — consumers, workers and small businesses — come before big corporations that are getting even bigger,” the document read.
Prescription Drug Prices: The plan would revamp Medicare by allowing the program known as “Part D” to negotiate prices directly with drugmakers.
“It is ridiculous that Big Pharma has controlled Washington for so long and has refused to even budge on the notion that we ought to negotiate for lower prices,” Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri said in a YouTube video outlining the platform.
The campaign would also expand apprenticeship and vocational programs, as well as establish a tax credit for companies that provide on-the-job training. Additional pieces of the broader proposal will be unveiled in the coming months, such as addressing the cost of higher education, infrastructure investment and creating a national family leave program.
In addition to Pelosi, top Democrats Sens. Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren are slated to outline the campaign later Monday, laying the groundwork for the party’s message in the 2018 midterm elections and beyond. The rollout takes place in Clarke County, Virginia, part of a congressional district that Democrats have long fought to turn blue. It is represented in the House by Republican Barbara Comstock and won by Trump in November.
However, Democrats do not directly mention Trump in their strategy documents, though the campaign’s title clearly references the president’s signature book, “The Art of the Deal.” Resistance to the Trump administration has energized the party’s base, but Democrats are hoping to complement that with a more optimistic vision of the nation’s economic potential.
“In the last two elections, Democrats, including in the Senate, failed to articulate a strong, bold economic program for the middle class and those working hard to get there,” Schumer wrote in an op-ed in The New York Times. “We also failed to communicate our values to show that we were on the side of working people, not the special interests. We will not repeat the same mistake.”

Does Nancy Pelosi have senile dementia?


77-year-old House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is increasingly incoherent.
On June 25, 2017, appearing with MSNBC’s Joy Reid at Manhattan’s Jewish non-profit community-center 92nd Street Y, looking gaunt and sunken-cheeked, Pelosi struggled to communicate, gesticulating wildly and futilely with her hands, repeatedly stopping in mid-sentence and staring at the audience in brain freezes.

Referring to her late father, Pelosi said:

“He was part of, part of a group called the Berkson Group, and they did rallies and pageants and parades and um, and when he stood up on the floor of Congress, ‘I stand here as a representative … of the . . . [brain freeze] members of the Jewish army,’ and he was really way out there….”

Then, on the subject of the GOP’s health care reform bill, Pelosi said:

“Now we are building and validating what really is the message, that as we go for it, you probably could put it on a piece of paper right now and say this is what it should be. For us, we have to make sure that our members [brain freeze] participate in that. At least go to Facebook, Twitter, whatever . . . [brain freeze] Instagram, any platform that you want. Home care to, you know, some people are at home, but they still get care from, from . . . [brain freeze] Medicaid low income seniors in nursing homes are getting care at home, it, it will a tremendous impact on what families can do for their children, the, the [brain freeze], in relationship to what they need to do.”

Did you understand any of that?
H/t The American Mirror
Here’s another video of Pelosi lying, being incoherent, and slurring her words:

And once again, the tongue thing.
Like other Democrats/Progressives, Pelosi also thrusts her tongue out like a snake:

Update (Dec. 12, 2017):

The recent news that DC pharmacy delivers Alzheimer’s drugs to Congress certainly lends credence to speculations that Pelosi has senile dementia.

Fake News: Newsweek didn't write or read fake 'Hillary won' cover story

Fake News Alert!!!

Do you remember Newsweek‘s November 8, 2016 “Special Commemorative Edition” — the one declaring Hillary Clinton as the winner of an election that hadn’t yet taken place? (See “The fix is in: Newsweek already has an issue in print declaring Hillary Clinton the winner”)
newsweek-hillary-edition1
Believing in the media’s rigged election polls, Newsweek was so confident Hillary would be the winner that they had the “Madame President” issue already in print and sent to vendors before the election results. The National Enquirer reports:

Newsweek was left with a huge stash of magazines to burn — after their Special Edition ‘Madam President’ cover featuring Hillary was sent out to news vendors. An alternate cover celebrating ‘President Trump’ was also prepared, but the publishers had only printed copies of Hillary’s ‘winning’ issue.

According to Topix Media, 17 of the 125,000 “Madam President” issues had been sold before they were recalled by Newsweek.
The following is a quote pulled from the fawning “Madam President” cover story, in which Trump and his supporters are demonized as “deplorable,” fearful and hateful, who want to repeal the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which gave women the right to vote:

“…as the tone of the election grew darker and more bizarre by the day, President-Elect Hillary Clinton ‘went high’ when her opponent went even lower. No stranger to trudging through the mire of misogyny in her career as first lady, senator, and secretary of state, President-Elect Clinton continued to push for an issues-based campaign even as a handful of Trump’s most deplorable supporters, seeing the wide margins Clinton held among female voters, called to repeal the 19th amendment. On election day, Americans across the country roundly rejected the kind of fear and hate-based conservatism peddled by Donald Trump and elected the first woman in U.S. history to the presidency. The culminating election of a career in politics spanning 3 decades and arguably more experience than any other incoming president, 2016’s was not an easy race to watch, comment on or be a part of–but when the dust cleared it revealed a priceless moment in American history. The highest glass ceiling in the Western World had [been shattered]…”

I don’t recall Trump or his supporters calling for the 19th Amendment to be repealed, do you?
Even more ridiculous is the fact that Newsweek‘s political editor, Matthew Cooper, admitted that no one at Newsweek had either written or read the “Madam President” story.
matthew-cooper-newsweek-political-editor
Appearing on FoxNews’ Tucker Carlson Show on Nov. 30, 2016, Cooper said, referring to the “Madame President” issue (1:07 mark):

“It’s embarrassing. Let me tell you how it happened, and what we’re doing to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Newsweek, like a lot of publications, puts out special commemorative issues . . . these are big parts of the magazine business. What we did for the election was the company that we subcontract to . . . produced two editions: One, ‘President Trump’, and ‘Madame President’. They both . . . the ‘Madame President’ one mistakenly went out, which was the first embarrassment, it should never have happened. But it can happen . . . not up to our editorial standards. . . . No one on our staff wrote it, we subcontracted it out . . . [no one] read it before it went out . . . . You see, we subcontract these commemorative issues out to a company. This is pretty common in the magazine business . . . . It’s sort of been done on a separate track, and we did not review it before it went out.


As you heard from the video, Newsweek is blaming its premature “Madame President” issue on its subcontractor, Topix Media:

From the Editors: 2 special edition covers for 2016 election outcomes were produced by a Newsweek licensee, Topix Media, and not by Newsweek pic.twitter.com/MwC4RytGbC

— Newsweek (@Newsweek) November 7, 2016

In other words, Newsweek‘s own editors and reporters don’t read the magazine. Kinda like Congress not reading a bill before they pass it, or as Nancy Pelosi put it in perfect Orwellian Newspeak: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it.”

The question then is:

If Newsweek’s own staff don’t write or read the magazine, why are you?

Finally, the question must be asked:

So who actually wrote the McCarthyist “Madame President” cover-story?

Take our poll! 😀

Nancy Pelosi had to change phone number after receiving scores of obscene and sick calls

Last Friday night, the Romanian hacker Guccifer 2.0 posted an excel spreadsheet on his blog – obtained from hacking the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee – which includes the personal cell phone number, physical and email address, as well as full personal information of some 200 congressional Democrats.

Muslim kisses pig

Muslim kisses pig


The next day, Saturday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said she had to change her cell phone number after receiving “scores of mostly obscene and sick calls, voicemails and text messages.” Pelosi added that she was on a flight from Florida to California when the information was released, and received the unwanted messages upon landing.
I really shouldn’t laugh, but I just can’t help it.

Pelosi said the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has hired a cybersecurity technology firm to investigate the breach, which she termed “an electronic Watergate break-in” and that the Capitol Police were looking at any threats posed by the release.
Meanwhile, just 24 hours after Guccifer 2.0 posted the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spreadsheet on Guccifer 2.0’s WordPress account, the Democrats are bracing for even more hacked documents being released. Another site, DCLeaks.com, released internal records from George Soros’s Open Society Foundations.
U.S. officials insist the Guccifer 2.0 and DCLeaks hacks, as well as the hacked DNC and Hillary emails posted by WikiLeaks, are the work of Russian intelligence services, although the Obama administration has yet to show any evidence to substantiate the allegations.
Rep. Jim Himes (D., Conn.), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said in an interview on Sunday: “I certainly believe that this is a coordinated Russian effort against the U.S. political process. It’s an act of hostility by a foreign power.”
U.S. officials are now debating whether to publicly accuse Putin’s government of the hacks, which could escalate a potential case of cyberwar between the U.S. and Moscow.

Pelosi's husband invested in solar firm weeks before lucrative expansion

What a coincidence, I’m sure…

Nancy and Paul Pelosi

Nancy and Paul Pelosi


From Fox News: House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s husband bought up to a quarter million dollars of stock in a now financially troubled green energy company just weeks before it announced a major 2014 acquisition that sent stock prices soaring, public records show.
SunEdison told regulators last week that it is eyeing bankruptcy under the weight of $11.7 million in debt. But in late 2014, investors were bullish on the company, which manufactures and operates solar and wind power facilities.
Its 2014 purchase of wind energy company First Wind “further bolstered the reputation of the company,” wrote one market-watcher at the time. “Perhaps unsurprisingly, SunEdison’s stock soared an astounding 29% on news of this acquisition alone.”
Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, had invested just in time. He bought between $100,000 and $250,000 in SunEdison stock on Oct. 24, 2014, according to congressional financial disclosures. The company announced its First Wind acquisition on Nov. 17.
Pelosi’s office did not respond to questions about the timing of the purchase and whether she or her husband had any advance knowledge of the deal.
Pelosi has previously been accused of trading stock based on information gleaned through her official duties. She participated in Visa’s initial public offering as the company fought a House bill to subject credit card companies to increased regulation. The measure failed to pass.

Obama picks ACA passage as best moment of his presidency

Think about your professional career and what was the best moment you ever achieved?
For me one moment sticks out: When my firm won a large contract for a project (worth $25 million). This was truly a team effort to land the project and it included working with individuals from several offices, including staff over in Europe. And we worked with the client for over a year to really understand their needs.
jonathan-gruber
It probably helped that we didn’t think our clients were stupid, as the architect of Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber, claimed about us peons.
pelosi5
It also probably helped that our clients were allowed to read our proposal. They didn’t have to “pass” it before finding out what was in it.
Those two tactics aren’t very successful in the real world. Yet apparently for Obama, they (along with some other tactics) helped to define his “greatest moment.”
obama-finger
For President Obama, the greatest moment of his last seven years in the Oval Office was the night the Affordable Care Act passed. “Standing on truman balcony with all staff whod made it happen, knowing we’d helped millions,” the president tweeted in response to a question he received on Twitter on January 14th.

During his final (thank goodness!) State of the Union address, Obama touted the Affordable Care Act as one of his administration’s biggest accomplishments of the past seven years but acknowledged that not everyone in Congress feels the same way. “I’m guessing we won’t agree on health care anytime soon,” he quipped. “Just a guess.”

Read the rest of the story here.
obamacare
You know who probably won’t agree with his “greatest moment” anytime soon?
Those who will lose work hours due to Obamacare’s host of incentives not to work or to work less. The Mizzou grad students who lost health insurance thanks to Obamacare. Those in Oklahoma whose ACA health insurance rates are expected to rise in 2016. Those attending Wheaton College as they ended student health insurance over Obamacare.
Those who are shocked to discover they have to pay back an Obamacare subsidy. Those whose non-group premiums increased (in nearly all states). Those in Los Angeles who now have to pay a 3% Obamacare surcharge in restaurants. Those at the University of Kansas who had employment hours cut because of Obamacare.
The parents of sick children at Seattle Children’s Hospital who were denied specialty care due to Obamacare. The Oregon mother who can’t afford Obamacare for herself and her 1-year-old son.

Shane Smith and his dog Baxter are happy!
