"favorite of the right wing extremist "

The continued efforts to link Conservatives and Republicans to the Alt-Right White Supremists is disingenuous … all be it typical of die-hard lefties.

If you called for a National Conference of People Who were Probed by Space Aliens … or better yet, a National Conference of liberal celebrities and Democrat elected officials who have been Accused of Sexual Harassment, you would have many more attendees than a National Conference of Alt-Right Proponents ... in short it is a handful of wackjobs.

For those who dare to step outside the liberal echo-chamber for a few minutes, several short cartoons put together by Prager University will help put the constant name calling in to prospective:

Hard to imagine how anyone who voted for Democrat could be so concerned with truth. HRC set new standards for deceit.

Hard to take serious a Democrat that talks of "lies, corruption, hatred, and sleaze" ... your team appear to have a lock on that Steve.

I think they mean you Richard!

"Instead of pushing alternative ideas to increase incomes or to help average Americans, Democrats are doubling down on criticism of the president and his administration. They will focus on corrupt money in politics, saying the president’s determination to “drain the swamp” has done anything but.

In other words, Democrats are reheating a campaign theme that was successful for President Trump. Though voters dislike the power of big money, Democrats will have a hard time making the case that either party is free of K Street influence or corruption.

Hillary Clinton, after all, set a new standard for profiting from public service.

For more than a year, Democrats have banked on anti-Trump fever being their best political weapon. They have relentlessly slammed every move the president makes and opposed his agenda at every turn.

Polling indicates Americans are tuning out the endless criticism; voters may wonder what else Democrats have to offer. Don’t we all?"

Oops!

"Moreover, people are increasingly questioning the integrity of the Mueller probe. A recent CBS News poll found that a majority of the country (53 percent) now thinks the special counsel’s investigation is politically motivated, while only 44 percent say it is “justified.”

That’s quite a shift from a few months earlier, but as more revelations surface about the origins of the Mueller inquiry and the tactics used, it is not surprising.

It is understandable that Democrats don’t want to celebrate the strengthening jobs market or the acceleration in economic growth. After all, a recent CBS News poll shows that an astonishing 68 percent of the country credits President Trump’s policies for the improving economic conditions. This, after liberal news outlets patiently and persistently argued for months that the gains are actually the benevolent aftereffects of President Obama’s economic nostrums.

Still, pretending that the tax cut-related bonuses are insignificant (“crumbs,” as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called them) or denying that the job market has become red hot makes Democrats not only appear ignorant, but hard-hearted to boot."

Friday AM ... "Trump nixed the summit, which was slated for June 12 in Singapore, following threats from North Korea. But hours after the U.S. pulled out of the meeting, North Korea issued a statement suggesting the regime was open to talks."

Mouth shut ... eyes open ... learn something! Didn't even have to send him several pallets full of currency!

I can understand your concern Steve ... 3 decades of kicking the can down the road and President Trump has had over a month now! BE patient, you will get to see what leadership is all about!

Ken ... regarding Gun Violence Research:

In the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy, President Obama issued a list of Executive Orders. Notably among them, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) was given $10 million to research gun violence. Finally, anti-gun proponents—and presumably the Obama Administration—thought gun owners and the NRA would be met with irrefutable scientific evidence to support why guns make Americans less safe. What did the CDC’s first major gun research in 17 years reveal? Not exactly what Obama and anti-gun advocates expected. In fact, you might say Obama’s plan backfired.

Here are some key findings from the CDC report, “Priorities for Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence,”

1. Armed citizens are less likely to be injured by an attacker.

2. Defensive uses of guns are common. Estimates of annual defensive uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million per year…in the context of about 300,000 violent crimes involving firearms in 2008.

3. Mass shootings and accidental firearm deaths account for a small fraction of gun-related deaths, and both are declining.

4. “Interventions” (i.e, gun control) such as background checks, so-called assault rifle bans and gun-free zones produce “mixed” results.

5. Gun buyback/turn-in programs are “ineffective” in reducing crime.

6. Stolen guns and retail/gun show purchases account for very little crime.

7. The vast majority of gun-related deaths are not homicides, but suicides.

The MSM cherry picked or buried the study ... and Obama Democrat Congress diverted the follow-on CDC gun research funds to other research!
