Lone Star, see you're back using fake NYT's headers.

Here's the real NYT's Headlines:

https://www.nytimes.com/

Oh, not sure about your constant winning claim (maybe you're referring to Putin and Turkey).
*guess if you search hard enough, you can always find something positive.

Almost forgot, Trump has exceeded 13k lies/missleading statements.
https://www.google.com/search?q=trump+l ... e&ie=UTF-8

https://www.politifact.com/personalitie ... ing/false/

Longshot prediction: Rudy arrested this weekend (FBI seems to like ruining peoples weekend), and flips on Trump and his associates before the mid-Nov.

Fox News Poll on Impeachment:

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/fox-ne ... mpeachment

Won't say, Constant Winning....................just making progress.


Have to addressed issue of House delaying the vote on Impeachment, just my opinion:
1. Why would the House hold a vote before all the information / evidence is gathered. Better to wait until you have all the ducks in a row, then forward the info to the Senate for a vote on impeachment/removal from office.
Key: Can you really trust a Republican controlled Senate to do the investigation for you???

When and where is that image from? Last England match was in Bulgaria with the Bulgarian "fans" aiming monkey chants at the black England players and making Nazi salutes.

You must have missed that bit.

Mattis Speech, classic military response to Trump attack.

First 90 seconds must watch, whole speech worth watching for every American.

Another record fundraising haul.

September showed the RNC taking in over $27 million in that month alone.

This is the highest amount ever taken in by either party in an "off-cycle" month. The Republicans continue to DOUBLE the Democrat Socialists in fundraising.

The RNC attributes the large donations to the incessant attacks on Trump and their one-sided, secret and anonymous impeachment inquiry.

This follows the $125 million raised by Trump and the RNC in the 3Q this year.

Much of the funding is earmarked to target Independent voters nationwide and Democrat House members in swing
districts.

https://edition.cnn.com/2019/10/17/poli ... index.html

Hard to very ActBlue numbers, but as no one contested the numbers on any Conservative news outlet, expect they are accurate. Added credence to the numbers, were their funding of last years house and senate races. Thus:

(from attached article) September 30 saw the largest day for number of contributions (297 million in the 3rd Qtr). Law of averages, expect they took in more than 27million in Sep.

Lone Star, what you posted might be in error.............par for the course:

Trump's letter to Erdogan was an embarrassment to the office of President of the United States. It reads as if it was written by a child.

Obviously I shouldn't toss stones as my grammar and spelling sucks, but I'm just a lower class American not the President of the United States.

"Trump Vowed to Save Coal, Now Miners Are Getting Laid Off"
The bottom line: U.S. production is expected to slide 10% this year, and jobs are at risk.

“It’s highly likely there will be more layoffs,” said Phil Smith, a spokesman for the United Mine Workers of America union. “I don’t think there’s any question.”
So where is the Saviour now? Another bail out?

Trumps leadership is a flash in a pan. POOOOF!!!!

Coal is quickly becoming obsolete except for what is needed for making steel. There was no reason for the government to to try to outlaw coal. It will slowly die on its own. Of course miners will be laid off.

The politics of Donald Trump’s stoopid language:

"Obviously Donald Trump is not deploying an elaborate ruse and dumbing down his otherwise highfalutin patter: this is how he thinks, and how he speaks. But that letter didn’t have to be released – the White House must calculate that fancy Democrats laughing at Donald’s stoopid language is a net political positive."

I'm posting this opinion piece as it echos my own opinion of the radical left's words and actions which I read about in the daily news.
"The left is becoming more unapologetically totalitarian every day. Every freedom-loving American should be alarmed.

From hounding conservatives out of restaurants to spitting on Trump supporters at rallies, from firing employees for politically incorrect statements to fining people for "misgendering" a person, the left is on a path toward absolutism.

Even some former and current leftists have recognized this intolerant trend and broken from their colleagues, lamenting their intolerance of opposing ideas and disturbing mission to suppress dissenting opinion.

Just the other day, three incidents typifying the left's authoritarianism popped out at me as I was surveying the morning news.

The Federalist reported that venues in three North American cities -- Toronto, Brooklyn and Portland -- canceled screenings of a movie about Canadian psychologist and author Jordan Peterson because of leftist criticism. Peterson exploded onto the scene in recent years with his no-nonsense, brilliant and clear-eyed critique of insane cultural trends, especially those concerning gender.

Peterson's book "12 Rules for Life" is wildly popular, and there are countless viral videos featuring his encounters with various leftist interviewers, panelists and audience members who have tried and failed to entrap him on a number of issues, and been reduced -- in every case -- to blundering, ineffectual bullies. If you haven't partaken of these videos, you owe it to yourself to witness one arrogant leftist after another being gobsmacked by the simple weapon of unadulterated logic. These videos are irresistibly contagious and imminently satisfying for those longing to see intellectually defenseless, virtue-signaling finger waggers brought to their knees through the medium of polite debate.

Peterson, you see, won't kowtow to the leftists' demand that we embrace the tenets of gender ideology, which teaches that gender is less about biology and more about personal identification. He refuses to support laws that criminalize one's failure to use a person's preferred pronouns, such as "they" instead of "she."

Peterson has the temerity to say that men and women are biologically different, and that gender is not a fluid, human construct. That doesn't sit well with the left, who not only insists that we accept its cockeyed ideas as normal but also advocates imposing them on us by force of law.

Can you get your mind around the irony of the left banning a movie about Peterson because he's dangerous? Who is more dangerous: a person who peaceably expresses an opinion that happens to be supported by thousands of years of human experience and common sense, or those who try to ban his voice or even a movie about it? This is "1984"-level scary, and it's getting worse by the hour.

On what possible grounds is the left arguing that Peterson's views are dangerous? He doesn't advocate violence; he isn't a rabble-rouser or revolutionary. He simply states his opinion instead of genuflecting to the despotic left.

But they claim that if Peterson's views are openly expressed, he might convince other people that he's right, and that could lead to the proliferation of conservative thought. Peterson's "conservative perspectives on feminism and gender," according to an opinion piece in The New York Times, "are very popular among young men and often are a path to more extreme content and ideologies." Think about this. Conservative speech is dangerous because it is a slippery slope to the adoption of conservative ideas? This must be satire. Do these clueless cranks know how ridiculous they sound?

Again, who is more extreme and dangerous: Jordan Peterson, who advocates the silencing of no one and expresses mainstream opinions, or leftists, who are actively trying to censor Peterson?

Please don't make the reckless mistake of dismissing this crusade against Peterson as exceptional. This is the left's pattern, and it is becoming more aggressive all the time.

The second and third incidents I came across are further proof that the left is increasingly Stalinist. In the most recent Democratic presidential debate, Sen. Kamala Harris pushed for the suspension of President Trump's Twitter, speciously alleging that he is trying to obstruct justice and intimidate and threaten witnesses. You see, the left always has some urgent rationale to smother conservative speech -- whether it's to prevent the incitement of violence or obstruction of justice. But it just wants to shut us up.

Those who would silence the other side are the very definition of dangerous. Don't take Harris' musings lightly, even if she is mostly posturing to gin up more support from the Trump-hating Democratic base. It is instructive that efforts to muzzle speech almost always come from the left, not the right, because the left is insecure about the popularity of its kooky ideas.

The third incident involved demagogue and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who said in a CNN forum on LGBT issues that churches and religious organizations should lose their tax-exempt status if they oppose same-sex marriage. If I have to explain how outrageous this is, the country is in even greater danger than I imagined.

I found these examples in 15 minutes of reading this week. They are everywhere. America was founded on the idea of claiming and preserving our God-given liberties. The illiberal left, which believes our rights and freedoms come from government, is hell-bent on destroying our liberties and forcibly imposing its thoughts and ideas on all of us."
