The mayor of Livermore California explains Trump’s popularity and success. This is perhaps the best explanation for Trump's popularity

I have a kinship with this Mayor and Livermore, CA. in that I was a homeowner there in the 90’s, and I am a conservative. A small town east of the San Francisco Bay area that is home to the Lowrence Livermore Lab, and cowboys.

Marshall Kamena is a registered Democrat and was elected mayor of Livermore, CA.. He ran on the democratic ticket as he knew a Bay Area city would never vote for a Republican. He is as conservative as they come. He wrote the following from an article, originally written by Evan Sayet and his opinion he expressed as a columnists for Townhall.com were his own and did not represent the views of Townhall.com, weremistakenly attributed to Marshall Kamena by me.

Trump’s ‘lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship’ By Evan Sayet in his article “He Fights

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.

We tried statesmanship.

Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?

And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.

I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.

Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60’s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.

Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.

Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking.. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”

That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.

It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN.. He made it personal.

Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”… Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. … They need to respond.

This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve. It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.

Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church.

Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do.

These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.

So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!

Please pass this on..over and over, and again and again…

Warning: The Democrats Have Found A New Sink Hole In Which To Plunge America

Posted by Jimmy Minnish on under Links | Be the First to Comment


First it was Global Warming. Then it became Climate Change. Now it’s the transferal of wealth from developed countries to needy nations

Warning: The Democrats Have Found A New Sink Hole In Which To Plunge  America


The picture now becomes crystal clear why Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats made no move to reign in Green New Deal-crazed Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. You know, the one that AOC said she was only joking about.

AOC’s job-killing Green New Deal was digging the hole into which the Democrats could jump to hide from their Big Fail Trump Impeachment brouhaha.

Anyone who is against the transferal of wealth in this not-so-new Marxist scam will be automatically accused of being against the world’s poor

They won’t need parachutes when they take their big jump in Madrid on Monday at the UN Summit to hear a call for rich nations to pay ‘Climate’ Reparations.

Pelosi, Ocasio-Cortez and progressive politicians have long been the willing puppets of environmental groups—and more than 150 of them are now telling them that they “MUST” consider implementing taxes on developed countries to transfer wealth to nations dealing with “the cost of drought, floods and superstorms made worse by rising temperatures”.

That rising temperatures are debatable by not being scientifically backed doesn’t matter.

That God, the Creator has been replaced by Goddess Greta Thunberg will only bring on another theatrical “How DARE You” should you mention that little factoid.

But the trajectory of so-called Climate Change has never been more transparent:

First it was Global Warming.  Then it became Climate Change.  Now it’s the transferal of wealth from developed countries to needy nations dealing with “the cost of drought, floods and superstorms made worse by rising temperatures”.

Anyone who is against the transferal of wealth in this not-so-new Marxist scam will be automatically accused of being against the world’s poor.

Pope Francis, who now puts Saving the Environment ahead of Saving Souls, is in on the Act

Pope Francis, who now puts Saving the Environment ahead of Saving Souls, is in on the Act.

And grade school children are being taught they will be dead and gone 12 years from now.

That’s the “rising temperatures” the Climate Change hoax has now reached.

As officials (bureaucrats) at the United Nations COP25 climate change conference in Madrid next week get ready to drop their green bombshell on the world, China—one of the worst offenders of pollution and carbon gas emissions—is accusing “developed countries” of “lacking ‘political will’ on climate goals”.

“China is the world’s second-largest economy and the biggest emitter of carbon dioxide, but has repeatedly argued that developed nations should lead on tackling international climate obligations. (The Business Times, Nov. 28, 2019)

“Developed countries’ insufficient political will to provide support” is the “biggest problem” currently facing international climate efforts, said Zhao Yingmin, Vice-Minister of ecology and environment, at a press conference on Wednesday.”

“Beijing said on Wednesday it had reduced carbon emissions intensity by 45 per cent between 2005 and 2018. But China’s absolute carbon emissions have continued to rise, according to Tuesday’s UN report.

“A separate study earlier this month warned that Beijing’s planned coal powerplants were equivalent to all of the EU’s current generating capacity.”

U.N.-administered taxes on financial transactions, international air travel and fossil fuels

“The financial impositions being considered include U.N.-administered taxes on financial transactions, international air travel and fossil fuels. (Breitbart, Nov. 29, 2019)

“In an open letter to the president of the COP 25 talks, Chile’s environment minister Carolina Schmidt, the organisations urged agreement on “the creation of a comprehensive financing facility, including debt relief, for developing countries experiencing such disasters.”

“The U.N.-sponsored Madrid conference is set to be dominated by discussions on so-called “loss and damage” funding, with a sharp divide between developing nations and richer polluters over how finance should be structured.

“Green groups this week claimed the increased pace and intensity of climate disasters, such as the twin cyclones that devastated parts of Mozambique this year, means that funding needs boosting to keep track.

“They said the amount needed for loss and damage would top $300 billion annually by 2030.

“Without finance to help countries cope with climate-induced loss and damage, the most vulnerable parts of the world will sink deeper into debt and poverty every time they are hit by climate disasters they did not cause,” the letter said, as quoted by AFP.”

Desperado Dems have come up with a much bigger scheme to get rid of President Donald Trump

But not many see how desperado Dems have come up with a much bigger scheme to get rid of President Donald Trump than Adam Schiff’s absurd Impeachment ‘Inquiry’.

The masses haven’t bought into their Ukraine accusations against Trump—even though the Schiff hearings have been covered LIVE with wall-to-wall network reports.

The whole while they’ve been pushing Impeachment, the Democrats have managed to push the Climate Change Dead Earth Deadline right up to Election 2020.

Here’s the gist of the new trap they’re setting.

“President Donald Trump officially withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord last month as part of an election promise to voters. (Breitbart)

“As Breitbart News reported, as far back as June, 2017 Trump said he was looking forward to exiting the agreement.

“The president spoke then of following through on his commitments to the American people.

“In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord,” Trump declared.

“Compliance with the accord could have cost the U.S. “as much as 2.7 million lost jobs by 2025 according to the National Economic Research Associates,” said Trump. “This includes 440,000 fewer manufacturing jobs — not what we need…”

“If you don’t want to die from Climate Change, Vote Against Trump”

Important to note:

“The Paris Climate Accord will form the basis for any future reparations as decided at COP 25. Almost 25,000 people and 1,500 journalists will fly in to Madrid Monday to attend the meeting.” ()

Here’s the gig:

FIRST AOC claimed earthlings had only 12 years to survive from out-of-control Killer Climate Change.

Other Democrats soon chimed in that it was really 11 years, 10 years, 9 and 8 years.

Now they’re certain it will be just 18 months.(Climate change: 12 years to save the planet? Make that 18 months—BBC, July 24, 2019)

Climate Change and not Trump Impeachment will be the Democrats’ 2020 Election Push.

The message will not be the Russians stole the election, or Trump collaborated with Ukraine to take down Joe Biden.

It has become: “If you don’t want to die from Climate Change, Vote Against Trump.

Ironically the calls of the far left that The Sky is Falling’ are coming true.

Laundry Disruptor – Rudy Giuliani Sends Letter to Senator Graham Outlining Ambassador Bill Taylor Efforts to Block Witnesses…

Posted by Jimmy Minnish on under Links | Be the First to Comment

Posted on November 23, 2019 by sundance

It was evident several weeks ago that U.S. chargé d’affaires to Ukraine, Bill Taylor, is one of the current participants in the coup effort.  It was Taylor who engaged in carefully planned text messages with EU Ambassador Gordon Sondland to set-up a narrative helpful to Adam Schiff’s political coup effort.

George Kent (left) – Bill Taylor (right), bagmen for the Foreign Service Office.

Bill Taylor was formerly U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine (’06-’09) and later helped the Obama administration to design the laundry operation providing taxpayer financing to Ukraine in exchange for back-channel payments to U.S. politicians and their families.

Today Rudy Giuliani has released a letter to Senator Lindsey Graham outlining how Bill Taylor has blocked VISA’s for Ukrainian ‘whistle-blowers’ who are willing to testify to the corrupt financial scheme.   Unfortunately, Senator Graham, along with dozens of U.S. Senators currently serving, may very well have been a recipient for money through the aforementioned laundry process.  So, good luck with the visas.

U.S. senators write foreign aid policy, rules and regulations thereby creating the financing mechanisms to transmit U.S. funds.  Those same senators then received a portion of the laundered funds back through their various “institutes” and business connections to the foreign government offices; in this example Ukraine. [ex. Burisma to Biden]

The U.S. State Dept. serves as a distribution network for the authorization of the money laundering by granting conflict waivers, approvals for financing (think Clinton Global Initiative), and permission slips for the payment of foreign money.   The officials within the State Dept. take a cut of the overall payments through a system of “indulgence fees”, junkets, gifts and expense payments to those with political oversight.

If anyone gets too close to revealing the process, writ large, they become a target of the entire apparatus.  President Trump was considered an existential threat to this entire process.  Hence our current political status with the ongoing coup. The letter:

It will be interesting to see how this plays out, because, well, in reality all of the U.S. Senators (both parties) on the Foreign Relations Committee [Members Here] are participating in the process for receiving taxpayer money and contributions from foreign governments.
