We live in a world of disinformation and omission. I read where Orwell said, "omission is the greatest lie of all." What ya ain't told is worse than an outright lie. It's what we aren't being told about the presidency of Donald Trump that's concerning.

It's the never-ending battle the Democrats are having with the president that concerns me. All Democrats aren't stupid. It seems that the Democrats, perhaps not all of them, but a few of the important ones know something they aren't telling. Otherwise why the all-out effort to take down this President.

And it isn't just the Democrats, agencies like the FBI and others that are privy to things the rest of us can only guess at have been against this President. The strange thing: with all the emails having been sent between those in the FBI, there is no mention for why they feel as they do. Of course, any email that expressed why it was felt the President had to be stopped, could have been omitted.

Those of us who have been around for a while don't have to be told that the present political climate is the worst its ever been. Using the disinformation and omission analogy one can only guess which side (party) is on our side.

It's as if a great battle between good and evil is taking place and only the combatants know which is which. However, it could be that both are evil, and we're just fucked

In all governments, as in this one, those in power will contend ferociously to hold on to it. Progs have been building their utopian dream for generations and Trump shows up and they are desperate to repair the “damage”!

Very interesting and intriguing and deep dive into the currents of Democracy. It is long, somewhat tedious, and erudite. Probably not to the taste of many here, who seem to prefer 10 second sound bites. Yet it will surprise and disappoint many more with its revelations about the pronounced failures inherent in what most see as a venerable and miraculous, perhaps God-inspired, document. Sacred. In reading this piece, I am of the opinion it is not anything like that. Every time it has been tried in other countries, it has failed miserably and led to oppressive governments. Its longest lifespan was about ten years but the average was five. How did it appear to work here for so long? It really didn't.

Here is an excerpt to excite or dull your taste buds: "In creating the national legislature, the delegates had to address the issue of slavery. Although slaves weren’t citizens and couldn’t vote, the Southern states wanted them to be included in the calculation of the over-all population, in order to boost the region’s representation in the House. The North thought that the slaves should not count at all.

"In a way, the negotiated solution reflected the shameful reality that slaves in the United States were judged less than fully human. The standoff led to a notorious compromise: for purposes of apportioning seats in the House, each slave would count as three-fifths of a person. As the University of Pennsylvania historian Richard Beeman noted, in 'Plain, Honest Men,' his 2009 account of the Convention, the debate over the three-fifths rule took place with 'a near-total absence of anything resembling a moral dimension.'”

The Constitution isn’t broken, we are............though not as badly as we were 250 years ago. The Constitution’s purpose has always been to provide the vision of a better society, peopled by better citizens. Had the Declaration and Constitution not been written the way they were, there would not have been a legal foundation for abolition. Slavery was always an abomination and was the currency of global trade for centuries. It took the combination of Western Christianity and representative government to finally abolish it.

they jus can't believe it. After 1 year,10 months, 6 days, Mueller says there will be "no more indictments". Of course the schmucks on the left like Adam Schiff plan to carry this on for God knows how long! Oh that's right, until the left catches Trump going 5 over the speed limit. Anything...just give us anything! is the mantra from the Left right now. They are desperate!!!!! https://video.foxnews.com/v/6017285960001/#sp=show-clips


They don’t care about, or need, an indictment.................this is all about grooming their base for the next election, the campaign for which is already underway. I might add that the money for this Democrat campaign is limitless............we (you and I) have already spent around 40 million via the Muller investigation, which is a perfect way to keep emotions high and forever in the top of the news cycle! The next act opens with Waters, Schiff, Cummings, et al, still financed by our tax dollars. Couple this extravaganza with the hoarde of socialist candidates and you have the perfect storm. One really does have to admire the sleazy perfection of their methods..............a snoozing electorate almost has no chance of seeing through it!!! Anyone care for a red pill!?!?!?

Progressives may agree with this but a liberal wouldn't condone it.

Wayfarers passing through San Antonio International Airport will be out of luck if they’re craving Chick-fil-A's crispy chicken or waffle fries, as the city council has banned the chicken-centric chain from opening up shop in the air hub due to the company’s alleged “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”

On Thursday, six members of the San Antonio City Council rejected the inclusion of Chick-fil-A from the new Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement for the airport, KTSA reports. The seven-year contract for concession management at the terminal is expected to create $2.1 million in revenue for the Texas city; the motion that passed gave the green light to food shops including Smoke Shack and Local Coffee.

“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion," Councilman Roberto Treviño said of the vote, as per News 4 San Antonio. "San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior."

"Everyone has a place here, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport," he continued.

The day before, Think Progress published tax documents revealing that in 2017, the Chick-fil-A Foundation gave over $1.8 million in charitable donations to some organizations that have come under scrutiny regarding their stance on LGBTQ issues.

Over $1.65 million of that contribution was given to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which writes in an online “Statement of Faith” that it believes “marriage is exclusively the union of one man and one woman,” and believes “sexual intimacy” should only be expressed “within [that] context,” CBS News reports.

A rep for Chick-fil-A, Inc. returned Fox News’ request for comment on the San Antonio airport ban with the following statement:

“The press release issued by Councilmember Treviño was the first we heard of his motion and its approval by the San Antonio City Council. We agree with him that everyone is and should feel welcome at Chick-fil-A,” the rep said. “We have a fundamental code of conduct at Chick-fil-A: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

“The 140,000 people who serve customers in our restaurants on a daily basis represent and embrace all people, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity,” they continued. “Our intent is to have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.”

“We would still welcome the opportunity to have a thoughtful dialogue with the city council and plan to reach out to them. It’s unfortunate that mischaracterizations of our brand have led to decisions like this,” the rep concluded. “The sole focus of the Chick-fil-A Foundation is to support causes focused on youth and education. We are proud of the positive impact we are making in communities across America and have been transparent about our giving on our web site.”

The news marks the second time in recent months that Chick-fil-A has been banned from launching a new location in a commercial hotspot due to the company’s supposed LGBTQ stance.

In November 2018, Rider University made headlines for turning down a student body survey that voted to bring Chick-fil-A to campus as a new fast-food option, citing concerns over the company’s attitudes toward the LGBTQ community.

The school said in a statement that the Chick-fil-A option was removed “based on the company's record widely perceived to be in opposition to the LGBTQ community." It admitted that the move could be perceived as a “form of exclusion,” but the institution wanted to remain “faithful to our values of inclusion.”

The chain pushed back against the university's characterization, saying the restaurant is merely providing food and doesn't have any agenda.

In early March, Cynthia Newman, the dean of the College of Business at Rider University, elected to resign from her position regarding the Chick-fil-A ban. Newman said she made the decision on the basis of her “very committed” Christian faith, detailing that she could not support the university’s choice to bar the chain "in good conscience.”

Both, the USSR and NK claim/ed to be democracies. All that is required to qualify as a democracy is to claim the power of government is directly in the hands of the people. A democracy is a majority rule establishment but you have to look quickly because they never last long.

A "complete democracy" is in no historical record that I can find. My understanding of the way in which the word has been bandied about in the Twentieth Century by the teachers in the public schools is to replace the word "republic" in the mind of the student. When the phrase "make the world safe for democracy" is uttered, the automatic thought is that only the Democratic Party can do this because of they are the only ones sympathetic to the "lower classes of people" unlike the "rich middle-class Republicans.

I know someone who served with McCain. While he acted as a true hero in the days of his captivity, he was considered untrustworthy and erratic in his professional life.

The really terrifying part is that they feel so confident of the ignorance of the electorate!! It is manifestly obvious what a sixteen year old male child thinks about. The minimum voting age should be forty!!!

We already have background checks and, yes, including gun shows. Don’t punish the innocent gun owners for the laziness of gov’t workers who didn’t do their job properly!

WOW -POWER & MONEY

The MAJORITY of Americans don't realize just how much POWER & MONEY the Democrats make off "Illegal Aliens" being in our country even without voter fraud.



This is why they created 'Sanctuary' cities and states.



Simply by including their numbers as part of the population in the US Census, they get MOUNTAINS of money from the federal government and for every 770,000 illegal aliens in their Democrat-controlled area, they get a seat in the US House of Representatives apportioned to their area following the census.



YES! READ IT AGAIN!



After the US Census (performed once every 10 years), the 435 seats in the US House of Representatives are divided up by state populations and the last one resulted in one seat for roughly every 770,000 people.



So, let's say California has about 4 MILLION non-citizens living there right now. That means that FIVE of their seats in the US Congress are due to people who are not Americans being counted in the Census!



NOW, imagine if by 2020, when they do the next census, they had 10 MILLION non-citizens living in California. That would mean California would get an additional 10 SEATS in the US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES due to non-citizens.



NOW, do you see why Democrats want Open Borders?



Next time you hear the bleeding-heart liberals and Democratic Party Leadership claiming how they 'care' about these pooooooorrr illegal aliens here, call it bullshit!



The Democrats found a way to get money and seats in Congress without even having to rig elections!



IT'S ALL ABOUT MONEY & POWER!

The census is supposed to count all people wether they are citizens or not. There is concern that a citizenship question will cause non citizens to refuse to answer the census thus depriving some districts of representation and also reducing federal programs determined by population. It is a double edge sword. A repressed count would starve communities with large undocumented populations of federal resources which appeals to many conservatives. But a number of red states have these populations and it could cost them a house seat. What all Americans should want is as accurate a count as possible as our founders intended.

Bogus argument! If they are non citizens, they should not be counted anyway to qualify for services to which they are not entitled!! YOU support them, Kev, I’m doing well to support my own family!!!
