"... folks that are bitter the election's over ..."

House Democrats are demanding that the winner of Tuesday’s presidential election should listen to the losing party in shaping the next administration.

A group of 169 House Democrats are insisting President-elect Donald Trump rescind the appointment of Breitbart News Executive Steve Bannon as Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor. Bannon served as Trump’s campaign CEO for the final months of the general election campaign.

“Bigotry, anti-Semitism and xenophobia should have no place in our society, and they certainly have no place in the White House,” Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., said Wednesday in a statement.

“Whether intentional or not, the appointment of Mr. Bannon sends a disturbing message about what kind of president Donald Trump wants to be,” he added.

No Republicans signed the letter to Trump. Last week, Republicans gained control of the White House while maintaining control of both houses of Congress.

The letter to Trump said unity is impossible while Trump has an adviser like Bannon.

“Unfortunately, your appointment of Stephen Bannon, whose ties to the white nationalist movement have been well-documented, directly undermines your ability to unite the country,” the letter said.

“Millions of Americans have expressed fear and concern about how they will be treated by the Trump administration and your appointment of Mr. Bannon only exacerbates and validates their concerns. We strongly believe that Mr. Bannon’s appointment will not allow the country to heal and come together as one,” the letter added.

As Democrats hammered Bannon, others defended him.

Bannon’s critics are “folks that are bitter the election’s over,” Trump spokesman Jason Miller said. “They didn’t get the result that they wanted.”

“Steve Bannon is someone who’s done a fantastic job implementing the president-elect’s vision on the campaign trail,” Miller said. “He’s someone I’ve had the opportunity to work with over the past three or four months, someone I’ve seen very high character from.”

Breitbart Senior Editor-at-large Joel Pollak told NPR that Bannon “has no prejudices, he treats people equally, and, in fact, during my time working closely with him at Breitbart for five years, he sought out people from diverse backgrounds and gave them a voice at Breitbart.”

Pollak said Bannon is “from a conservative perspective at least, a national hero, because in helping Donald Trump win, he’s helped defend the Supreme Court and the Constitution.”

Sometime I wonder who won, they need to get a life.

         Go Trump.

GW..

If one only had the MSM to gage the outcome of the election one would think Trump lost ... and the Dem's cleaned up in Congress. It is part of their strategy to control the narrative and with the narrative the political agenda.  The GOP needs to isolate and freeze the Dem's in place... keeping them on the defense by using the power of the majority too control and set the agenda.

Sen. McConnell and Speaker Ryan need to appear together in a press conference where they confirm that Trumps appointments will sail thru committee and a vote without delay... that any obstructionist efforts by the minority party will result in the Nuclear Option being taken... on the first offense...

In Fact, they should announce that the first order of business for the next Congress will be to suspend the Filibuster Rule and install a simple majority vote requirement for ALL of Congress's business until further notice. Then end the briefing and leave without taking questions... shutting down the MSM circus.

you guys ever notice how the buzz term UNITY to the democrats is to do what they want and for the republicans to cave to their demands......? the first thing trump should do after picking these top cabinet positions....is to issue them a set of balls and each sign a promise for them to USE them......and that goes for the women too.

Their brand of unity we can live without. They need to sit down and shut up.

       KEEP HIM TRUMP DON'T GIVE IN !!  THEY DON'T RUN THE SHOW ANY LONGER  !!!!

Stephen Bannon knows filth when he sees it and having worked around the Hollywood elites, the nasty perverted Left, he knows all too well who they are and how they think and i believe this is why the Left are seriously against and afraid of him. He's gonna target the bastards by revealing the big lie of who they really are. Pop a cap in it and use them for compost. We'll plant them next to our favorite shrubs and trees or it can be exported to the middle east. They have a shortage of compost in those deserts over there. That would be good on shrinking the carbon foot print they're all so concerned about. All Good!

And yet, not a word about the Congressional Black Caucus, who has promoted racism at every level.  Just a word, every issue is not about race, and in fact almost none are.  Most people who are shot by police in the commission of a crime are not racial issues but more of the issue of stopping the crime that they are involved in.  What always gets lost in this discussion is that every single one of these shootings only happened because a crime was committed.  I want to point out that this does not include the death of Sandra Bland as she should have never been arrested in the first place.  What a tragedy.

Don't you just love it, Democrats are already throwing their weight around. You lost, we won, shut up!

House Democrats are insisting that Trump dump Steve Bannon in order to create unity. The sad and dying Democrats came up with this totally brilliant strategy after many hours of discussions within their think tank.

The Democrats have no leg to stand on ... their dog simply won't hunt in the next Congress.  Lock them out of the leadership conferences, like they did the GOP... Drop 1000 page bills on them the day before the vote, and ram the bills through using a simple majority.  Let the Dem's know that there threats are empty ... and delusional.

With a Majority in Both Houses of Congress and the Presidency in the GOP Corner the GOP can write their own ticket ... without any effective way for the Dem's to counter.  If the GOP doesn't they will clearly show that there is no difference between the Parties and the People need to throw both political parties out of power... that process needs to start... immediately... if the GOP's Globalist and Progressive Establishment arm shows itself unwilling to act in defense of our heritage and Constitution.. 

No more excuses... or blaming the opposition party for obstruction... run the Dem's over... or be viewed as traitors to our heritage and the US Constitution.  Now is the time for the GOP to clean the swamp; too, pass the legislation and appoint Justices to the Courts, needed to restore Constitutional Government in America.  The Question is will they use their power or claim they have none.. when ever it suits them... in an attempt to avoid being held accountable for their inaction? We shall see.

Ignore them, shun them, it will drive them crazy and then they will do something incredibly stupid to get attention. I can see Charley Shummer now, on the news everyday attempting to take the light from Trump.
Trump won't be on a golf course or off apologizing for being American he will be working long hours attempting to get this country back on line, creating a political and economic climate that will create millions of jobs.
Dirty filthy lying stinking Communist nearly completed their destructive job, God heard our prayers and now we all have work to do. Canvass and take seats on village, city and county boards and prepare for the reestablishing of the old PTAs and bring education leadership back to local level. We have to be in charge or the commies will institute their garbage from the local level. Join your local grass root Republican party. God has given us a last chance, we must not blow this. The commies nearly destroyed this country and they started with education on the local level.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

ALERT ALERT

Trump National Diversity Coalition's Bruce LeVell: President’s Support Among Blacks, Hispanics Will ‘More Than Double’ In 2020

Bruce LeVell, the National Diversity Coalition for Trump executive director, said on Sunday evening he predicts President Donald Trump will win even higher levels of support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020 than he did in 2016.

“Pastor Darrell Scott is the CEO, we started this back in 2015,” LeVell said on Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel on Sunday evening about the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. “It is the largest diversity coalition platform in history for a Republican candidate, not to mention a sitting president, and there are millions of guests that sign on and sign up that are part of this. If you look on the website, you see African Americans for Trump, Haitian Americans for Trump, Korean Americans for Trump, Chinese Americans for Trump, Hispanic Americans for Trump–all very large. They all stand in one agreement that they believe in this great president and that he is here for all and wants everyone to be successful. It’s pretty flattering, honestly, to be a part of this. It just totally debunks everything that they try to make him out to be–a racist, which he’s not. The numbers prove that he’s not. You can see where he’s rising in terms of the Hispanic vote, and the African American vote. It’s just really going to be mind-boggling on the next go-around. I guarantee it. It’s going to more than double because people are happy; they’re working.”

LeVell, when asked for his rationale on why he thinks Trump’s support in 2020 among blacks and Hispanics will more than double, attributed it to the results President Trump has gotten for those communities.

“Sometimes you have to speak things into existence,” LeVell said. “The president said, ‘What do you have to lose?’ That challenge, especially in the underserved communities, well, yeah, what do we have to lose? We tried it this way for 30 or 40 years. Some of these cities and municipalities were under Democrat rule, as you might say, for many years, and then you say, ‘You know what? Let’s make the ask.’ You know, the president made the ask. Sometimes, you just have to ask, ‘Hey, what do you got to lose? Try this.’ Let’s try one of the biggest, strongest bills that he’s signed, that was so beneficial, called the Opportunity Zones. This bill right here alone is bringing a lifeline to some of these underserved communities and is projected to bring in over hundreds of billions of dollars in these underserved communities, which are predominantly African American communities. For example, in Atlanta, there are minority business contractors teaming up with other business contractors building a hotel in an Opportunity Zone. This community has just been blighted for God knows how long. These are the things that people are starting to see–the light at the end of the tunnel. Here’s a businessman that understands what I call a balance sheet, a P & L sheet of profit and loss. The president wants to see the country profitable, not losses. So that’s what he does. He says, ‘Okay, where can we improve? What can we do?’”

He continued, “Like I said earlier, I think the Opportunity Zones is a sleeper; it has so many moving parts to it where you can sell a piece of property for $2 million and instead of paying that very high capital gains [tax] you can identify those funds over the zone, and then, you can build another little hotel or a shopping center for economic empowerment for that community. So there’s so many initiatives out there for people of color, like myself, who see opportunities. You know, how about this? You live in a black community under the Trump administration, you walk down the street and say, ‘Wow, 98 percent who live in the community are African American,’ and you say, ‘Why don’t you build that grocery store? Why don’t you build that gas station?’ Wow, you’re right. I can. The programs that are out there, like in the Small Business Administration, you get as little as five or ten percent down, and they can maturize it to 30 years, and if you’re a veteran, they waive the fees. There are so many tools out there, and you saw the president when he adjusted Dodd-Frank last year; that was a terrible, terrible deal they did in 2009 and 2010 that literally almost just choked and killed the business community because of the Dodd-Frank, going in there and regulating these small community banks, which were life support for these small communities especially in the African American community, where he readjusted that last year and made it work. These are the things this president understands that as a businessman he can bring his lifelong talents to the White House and can help America. The biggest thing about this is, remember, the president is not beholden to any special interest group; this is a very key part of this conversation right here because he can go in there and govern without having to worry about paying back favors.”

According to NBC News analysis in the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, Trump actually outperformed now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)–then the former governor of Massachusetts–in the 2012 election when it came to both the black and Hispanic communities.

“Trump claimed 29 percent of the Hispanic vote on Tuesday, compared to Romney’s 27 percent in 2012,” NBC News wrote. “With blacks, exit polls show Trump claimed 8 percent of the vote to the previous Republican nominee’s 6 percent.”

If Trump is able to double support in the black and Hispanic communities in 2020, as LeVell predicts he will, no Democrat will stand even close to a chance of defeating him; the margins they would need for victories in a number of states would be significantly eroded. Perhaps that is why the Democrats are now attempting to paint Trump as a racist amid his battle with the so-called “Squad” of socialist Reps. Alexandria Ocasi0-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI). The new faces of the Democrat Party, the “Squad,” in other words, is worried they may lose the election in 2020 if LeVell and other Trump backers are right. But the scurrilous accusations of racism for quick political gains, which have also been leveled at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former Vice President Joe Biden in recent weeks, LeVell warns, may undermine the ability to stand up to actual racism where it exists.

“At first, it was kind of bizarre,” LeVell, who knows Trump well and has known him prior to his run for president, said of the false racism accusations. “Now, it’s just plainly un-American. It’s so anti-patriotic. You know, the interesting thing about it for me as a black conservative or Republican–I like to define myself as a Frederick Douglass Republican–most of the name-calling comes from people who actually look like me, 90 percent of it. It’s bizarre, and it’s because our thinking process is not lining up with theirs. It’s the only playbook they have, like I said earlier, which is, ‘Let’s just use the race card.’

LeVell went on to say, “Getting back to the president, I’ve been around him–I was just with him at the rally–in very intimate settings, behind the scenes at the rally, and you’re right: I’ve traveled with him, been on the plane with him. I’ve been in private meetings with him. I’ve talked with him, and you know–let me tell you something: I’m 55 years old, I’ve lived my whole life in the South, and I’m world-traveled. Let me tell you: I know racism when I see it. This man is nowhere near being a racist. It’s so sad because it does such a disservice to this great nation that they would throw that name and throw those words around. I mean, you have people calling Biden racist. They’re calling Pelosi racist. They’re calling the dog-catcher racist because he impounded the black dog instead of the white dog. Come on. What’s next? You know, it’s kind of sad because it’s pretty much watered down things that are legitimate, to where people are just going to get so numb with it, and people are just being like, ‘Wow, are you serious?’”
