"... 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

WTH -> Rosie O’Donnell Claims There Are ‘Over 100,000’ Concentration Camps In America

Actress and left-wing activist Rosie O’Donnell made the stunning claim that there are more than 100,000 concentration camps in states across the country, holding unaccompanied minors who illegally enter the U.S.

Appearing Monday on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live After Show,” Rosie O’Donnell was asked about the role she’s playing in Lights for Liberty, a rally being held July 12th to demand and end to what host Andy Cohan called “detention camps.”

“Yeah, the concentration camps, even though there’s lots of controversy about the word. But actually, legitimate scholars who study genocide say, yes, these are, in fact, the criteria for concentration camps, they meet them. There are over 100,000 camps in nearly every state,” O’Donnell said, failing to cite the scholars she mentioned. “There’s between 10,000 and 13,000 children, that could fill Radio City Music Hall twice. That’s how many children unaccompanied alone in these camps.”

O’Donnell, of course, was echoing fellow far-left figures like New York freshman Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has spent the last several weeks comparing the oft-overcrowded Border Patrol facilities currently holding thousands of unaccompanied minors who illegally entered the country with adults to contraction camps like the ones that executed Jews during the Holocaust. Indeed, that comparison was roundly rejected on Monday by the United States Holocaust Museum.

“The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary,” the organization said. “That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now.”

It is worth noting that the policy of separating children from adults and holding them in separate facilities was expanded by Barack Obama. It was his administration that separated thousands of children from their parents as a way to deter illegal immigration.

Rosie O’Donnell Backs Elizabeth Warren’s 2020 Bid — ‘She Knows How to Handle That Baby in the White House’

Rosie O’Donnell said she is supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.

O’Donnell said, “Warren is my choice.”

She added, “We need a leader. We need a leader, and she’s been leading. Every time she opens her mouth, she gets more respect. Because she has plans for everything, she knows what she’s doing. And I think she knows how to handle that baby in the White House.”
