The Dems still haven't figured out that their message of division and anti Americanism doesn't play with most Americans. They are blindly following their leftist supporters on the coasts and carefully crafting a message of resistance to play in the flyover country. They still don't get it. Flyover people see the project the Dems and media are playing. Carry on Dems. Are the Socialists so insulated that they don't see what is happening? Everyone I know that sees the Infada is repulsed. They consider the dem party and media to be against our nations best interests. Why are Dems doing this? Do they think we will just allow them to beat us down into submission?

Maybe not the best spot for this but....
Venezuela seizes GM plant. Go socialism

CARACAS (Reuters) - General Motors said on Wednesday that Venezuelan authorities had illegally seized its plant in the industrial hub of Valencia and vowed to "take all legal actions" to defend its rights.

The seizure comes amid a deepening economic crisis in leftist-led Venezuela that has already roiled many U.S. companies.

"Yesterday, GMV's (General Motors Venezolana) plant was unexpectedly taken by the public authorities, preventing normal operations. In addition, other assets of the company, such as vehicles, have been illegally taken from its facilities," the company said in a statement.

It said the seizure would cause irreparable damage to the company, its 2,678 workers, its 79 dealers and to its suppliers.

Venezuela's Information Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for information.

Venezuela's car industry has been in freefall, hit by a lack of raw materials stemming from complex currency controls and stagnant local production, and many plants are barely producing at all.

In early 2015, Ford Motor Co wrote off its investment in Venezuela when it took an $800 million pre-tax writedown.

The country's economic crisis has hurt many other U.S. companies, including food makers and pharmaceutical firms. A growing number are taking their Venezuelan operations out off their consolidated accounts.

This is really great news for 'Merica and precisely the right thread.  Come back home GM and quit trying to take advantage of the poor and disadvantaged

Unfortunately for Venezuela they are likely going to have to devolve all the way to civil war.  Then get some helicopters and give out some free rides to rid themselves of the commie 5hitholers.

Looks like a cyclical pattern regardless of party affiliation. So let's look at it again around 2019-2022

WSJ April 6 - https://www.wsj.com/articles/rnc-trump-re-election-campaign-raise-more-than-53-million-in-first-quarter-1491502477

Excerpts from https://www.gop.com/icymi-donors-enthusiasm-for-trump-energizes-rnc-fundraising/:

“The Republican National Committee, together with President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, raised more than $53 million in the first quarter of 2017 … fueled by the same class of online donors who flocked to Mr. Trump last year.

“Of that, the RNC raised $41.3 million in the first three months of the year — more than double what its Democratic counterpart raised in the quarter … in 2008 — while Mr. Trump’s campaign raised $3.3 million and a joint committee between the two raised more than $9 million.

“Republicans’ fundraising success suggests Mr. Trump’s small-dollar supporters are continuing to flock to the party …

“Frequent fundraising emails bearing Mr. Trump’s name brought in about 250,000 new online donors to the RNC, campaign and their joint committees, according to an RNC official. That marks a 398% increase over the number of new donors the RNC won in 2016—an election year …”

Bluewey doesn't know what he is.  He voted for Obama and then he voted for Trump.  Clearly, Bluewey loves all that deeply liberal politicians stand for if you just go by how he voted.

Did not vote for obummer.  Never could.  Although after Bush 5hittanked our economy worse than any president ever, and republicans were dumb enough to nominate McCain, I have to say it was the absolute most difficult vote I ever cast. 

Yes, is is the end of the loser wing of the republican party.  I welcome the new republican party that knows how to win, and get things done.

I'm not sure what particular actions Bush took to tank our economy.  If you think it's due to the runaway spending that he allowed to happen, i might agree but then you'll find Dems in a quandary since they think that's the cure-all.  I just don't think this is what caused the economy to tank.

IMHO, the economy tanked because the mortgage lending market was allowed to get completely out of control (thanks to Barney Frank and Chris Dodd) and then Wall Street went apesh1t trying to make money on a really horrible idea of monetizing really bad loans.  Bush had almost no part in that.  But that's just my opinion.

Bush was the president at the time.  He has to hold some responsibility.  

My view he was very weak leader in his second term.  He let the Dems fully abuse him.   They created this crazy rule initially that for ever dollar in Iraqi war spending they needed a 2.5x increase in domestic programs.   It was these increases that greatly increased US debt.

On Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.  Yes again dems primarily hold the bag.  But Bush admin knew what was going on over at Freddie and Fannie.  17 times the proposed additional oversight for Freddie and Fannie.  They were just to weak to get anything done about it.

Lord help me.

All weekend, I've been battling "science crazies" on twitter.  That seems to have brought out the impeach trump crazies in even greater numbers. 

They sure get really PO'd when you ask them for proof of Putin owning the POTUS or the GOP.  And, when you remind them of civics class, and what impeachment is and how it works, they really blow a gasket.

All I do is ask questions - never really take a side.  They lose their minds.  One of them retweets, and it draws them like flies.  Great sport.

My secret alter ego on twitter - a racist neo-Nazi trump humper.

I to enjoy playing that game with the little snowflakes. I find it most amusing that their predominant response is to block me. Just shows they are incapable of discussion and blocking opposing views is their way of running to their cyber-safe space.

I guess I am dense.  They were running around here endlessly fired up about the science march and how big a deal it was.  It was just slipping past me why.  Finally asked one to really explain it.  They were being super smug and super smart about it.

He explained lib/democrats were going to take over the mantra of the party of science.  That since they are the part of science, the other side becomes the party of alternative facts.  

He instantly triggered when I mentioned that science says there are exactly and only 2 sex orientations in humans (and mammals in general), and suggested dems did not seem to like that chapter in the "science" book.

Also seemed annoyed that I suggested that politics is mostly about people and the antithesis of anything science.  Science is ultimately based on the scientific method, which is being able to predict something will happen, run an experiment and prove beyond doubt that the thing happened.   People and certainly groups of people are inherently unpredictable.   Hills polling reproved that biggly. 

Further climate change right now, really does not meet the level of scientific theory.  There are not provable models with experiments that tell us the model has the behavior nailed.   That is why climate change remains mostly a political football.  

That said reiterated that I am all for improving our environment every reasonable way possible.  We all should remain good stewards of this earth.

Here is another scientific fact that I wish I would have thought of before. 

If dems are party of science, then they must know that science has largely proven a fetus is viable after 7 weeks.

creation, abortion, climate change.  the trifecta of nutso triggering.  funny thing is, if I question on any of those things, they immediately go to "you must be a rural, 65+, white, trump voter".  say what?

that leads to "we're working on impeaching your idol trump".  clever.

One person was rallying folks to write/call their congressmen, right now, right as they come back from recess.  If they get enough calls, they will realize people are angry, and impeach trump this summer.  I had the audacity to ask - what are they impeaching him for?  because he doesn't represent us, of course.

the other one is because he allowed the Russians to run his campaign, so he can be impeached for espionage. Of course - what was I thinking.  Oh yeah, one more - because he's dangerous and reckless.

silly me.  I thought there had to actually be a reason to impeach a POTUS.

I'll tell you - lots of folks are going to be let down when they find out that trump has not done anything to be impeached for.

One other thing - all the scientists learned the F word at their marches.  I have never seen more angry scientists dropping F bombs.  They've run out of racist cards, so they go straight to that.

What could be more scientific than "life begins at inception"?  It is the most black-and-white, go-nogo, no-turning-back point in the history of science.

Don't tell that to liberals.

You keep saying this and fail to realize just how inaccurate the statement is.  Record number of state houses, large majority of governorships, house and senate control - all before Trump arrived.

And guess what.  Now with Trump there they have those same state houses, and the Presidency.  So woot!

Nevermind....


President Trump began to edge away Monday evening from demanding that funding for his promised border wall be included in a must-pass spending bill, reducing the chances of a government shutdown at the end of the week by making clear he’s flexible on that timeline.

 

Trump told a group of 20 conservative media reporters Monday evening that he would be willing to return to the wall funding issue in September, two people in the meeting said. His earlier demand that it be included represented a significant impasse in budget talks, and the latest comments potentially could pave the way for a bipartisan deal just days ahead of the government shutdown deadline.
