Image result for confused democratsA group of House Democrats has proposed legislation that would impose a series of penalties against foreigners who try to interfere in U.S. federal elections, the latest shot fired in the fight over whether Russia improperly tried to tip the election to President-elect Trump.

Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., and more than a dozen Democrats proposed the Protect American Democracy Act on Tuesday. The aim of the bill is to "expose and deter unlawful and subversive foreign interference in elections for Federal office."

Under their bill, the State Department would have to submit a report to Congress listing every foreign national who tried to "unlawfully access, disrupt, influence, or in any way alter information or information systems" related to U.S. political parties and federal elections.

That report would be due after 120 days, and updates would have to be provided as available.

"All things being equal Paul Simmon, with a morally upright wealthy man as an advisor, sure."

That little word shows me agreeing with the hopefully possible. Yet, financial success does not automatically connote qualification to altuistically administrate (again, George Soros comes to mind). I voted for a man who did not need to sell himself out in order to campaign for election. I suspect he did this in hopes of keeping a country fit to live in for a free people. Having the selfish ambition of gaining this for his family also is a completely understandable motive, I would add. None-the-less, wealth contends as a burden to the moral man. To evade its troubles some are tempted to grow callous to the plight of others.

Trump has chosen not to be of the isolated group of wealthy would-be plutocrats. He will be tested and troubled for this. I pray he will prevail, but it has already started. Interests are prodding Trump RIGHT NOW to impoverish himself so later he may be held up as someone to NOT emulate, for fear of the same fate. IMO

Are you seeing this too Paul?

Reince Priebus, the incoming chief-of-staff, said it best in his Christmas message, "this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King." George Soros and his campaign for an open society (with a free flow and competition of opinions and ideas) are the exact opposite of what America needs today after 8 years of the communist Obummer. Instead, we need Trump who will drain the swamp, fight the establishment, and lock her up. We do not need people fighting Trump who will make America great again. That's unpatriotic and un-American.

We agree that division between those who believe in the American experience, ought not to bicker. That is why BOTH conservative and liberal elements should be closing ranks behind our President-elect for at least common needs. But "liberal" elements are not. Instead, they intend a dissention of unwarranted civil unrest to dog the new administration through social media, if nothing else. The man has not even taken the oath of office! This simmering resistance is financed by interests (because it takes money to power this faux grass roots movement). Vested interests saw that Trump could not be "fixed" though financial need, and as a result of his election victory, they figure he must be shunted ......by any means. This is what I am getting at Paul.

The election and cabinet installment is not the end of this.

Trump will crush liberals and he will bring the liberal mainstream media to heel as well. There is no doubt in my mind. This is the only way that Trump can drain the swamp, fight the establishment and Wall Street, lock her up and make America great again. Trump will not tolerate dissent in the US anymore that destroyed the country.

"this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King."

If Preibus choose that unfortunate combination of words, he must qualify. America will brook no secular king as a subject. That issue was settled over 200 years ago.

That's just a figure of speech. Trump won't be a secular king as in King George but I have no doubt Trump will rule the country the way it should be ruled.

I would think so too. But with media shills like Keith Olbermann keeping a thin veneer of civilization on a call for Trumps assassination, why feed him ammo?

Call me an old woman, but this kind of crap does worry me. This whole outcome is off the usual script and there are motives in play behind the scenes. The pretensious talking heads are not acting quite as predictably stupid as usual.

Trump will crush the liberals and their media anyway. They are just in the way to make America great again. Once Trump silences dissent, he can restore our American values and the country.

First Amendment Censorship – Soros Says What Speech Is Acceptable Now

by Rick Wells

It's not fake news that we have to be concerned with, it's fake premises upon which censorship is being imposed upon us by the very people who already control the mainstream media and who share their liberal aversion to press freedom. [AdSense-B] As is explained here, Facebook and George Soros, the new chief protagonists engaged […]

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
