by Patriot Post Staff:  What would happen if Democrats were told that the Republican Tax Bill they hate was actually from commie-Bernie Sanders? Would they support it then? Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz took to the streets of New York’s East Village to find out.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo -vs- Chris Wallace
{} ~ CIA Director Mike Pompeo appears on Fox New Sunday with swamp guardian Chris Wallace...  As the new year begins, all of the deep swamp voices are angered that all other primary attack angles against the Trump presidency have failed.  Tactics shift. Chris Wallace and his fellow UniParty swamp dwellers have made a conscious decision to combine the anti-Trump Wolff smear book with their familiar passive aggressive interview techniques to affirm an engineered narrative of Trump as unfit for office.   Wolff’s book essentially channels the inner conversations held by the UniParty DC media circuit. CIA Director Mike Pompeo begins the interview visually stunned to see the level of ridiculous questioning that flows as an outcome of this ideological alignment between Wallace and his white-wine-spritzer colleagues.

Libtard Nerdy Dem Announces 
Trump State of the Union Boycott
{} ~ It’s a question he’s not likely to be asked, whether another of the numbskull embarrassments that Oregon sends to DC to represent them... Earl “Blooming Idiot” Blumenauer, is so committed to his belief in bicycles that he’s riding one to work despite the record cold temperatures. Of course he’s not; bicycle riding in cold and icy conditions is dangerous and uncomfortable. He’ll stick with just wearing the pin and being an anti-Trump hypocrite. Weather could change unexpectedly and is beyond our control. That reality, along with a lack of honesty, understanding or being able to accurately predict and control the weather, combined with a desperate need to control other people, was what changed the transition in terminology from global warming to climate change. They have no idea what’s going to happen but now it doesn’t matter. There’s no way to assign responsibility for fluctuations to either and with the term “weather” already being used, they opted just to label everything as a result of mankind’s existence and recklessness. Failing to succeed in making nerdism cool, the bow-tied libtard simply continues his pigheaded attacks on the President of the United States, lacking anything productive to justify his own presence in Congress. Blumenauer won’t be attending President Trump’s initial State of the Union Address scheduled for January 30th...
Bannon expresses 'regret' for comments
attributed to him in 'Fire and Fury'
by Joseph Weber

{} ~ Former Trump political strategist Steve Bannon on Sunday expressed “regret”... 
for unflattering comments attributed to him in the recently released Trump White House tell-all “Fire and Fury,” saying he should have responded sooner and that he continues to support the president. "My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda,” Bannon said in a statement to Axios. Fox News later Sunday confirmed the statements with Bannon. The statements in the book attributed to Bannon, who joined the Trump presidential campaign in the closing months, were most critical of the president’s son Donald Trump Jr., who also was a part of the campaign...
Stephen Miller -vs- Jake Tapper
{} ~ President Trump policy adviser Stephen Miller appeared on CNN with Jake Tapper for an interview today...  The level of sanctimonious condescension and snark from Tapper throughout this interview is typical for a liar-Clinton Traveler that cannot yet come to grips with her defeat.  In short, Tapper triggered his inner child, and used the recent Wolff book to frame his defensive shield. Additionally, Jake shows a complete disconnect from understanding the subject matter of his questioning when he states, wrongly, that Steve Bannon was the impetus for Stephen Miller joining the Trump campaign in early January 2016.  At the time Tapper attributes the claim, Steve Bannon and Robert Mercer, and Breitbart Inc. was working for the nomination of Ted Cruz.   It was the relationship between Senator Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump that led Sessions to recommend Miller for the Trump campaign. The combative and argumentative nature Tapper reflects an ongoing disposition of opposition toward the continuing successful presidency of Donald Trump.  In an embarrassing display of petulance and denial Tapper ends the combative interview...
Character Counts, But So Do Results
by Cal Thomas
{} ~ I do not make it a practice to comment on the work of fellow columnists, though occasionally some care to comment on mine, which is fine. I'm happy to help them make a living.

An exception will be made here because of New York Times "conservative" columnist, Bret Stephens.

In an end-of-year column titled "Why I'm Still a Never Trumper," Stephens lists the accomplishments of the Trump administration: Tax cuts, deregulation, more military spending, cuts for the United Nations, defeat of the Islamic State in Syria, more troops to Afghanistan, arms for Ukraine, getting tough with North Korea, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital, decertifying the terrible Iran deal, yes to Keystone, no to Paris, huge gains on Wall Street and higher consumer confidence, plus more conservative judges on federal benches, including Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court.

It is a record that should delight any conservative voter, but despite it all and with promises of more to come this year, Stephens still wishes liar-Hillary Clinton were president. Does he not realize that none of the accomplishments he lists would have been achieved had she won the election? To him and to some other Establishment conservatives, deportment trumps victory.

Character, he says, is supreme. Really? I'd like to see him as a character witness at a trial for liar-Hillary Clinton, who criminally mishandled classified emails, but escaped indictment, not because of a change in the law, but because of a change in the wording describing her actions. Then there's the issue of enabling her husband's numerous infidelities and smearing his accusers. Does someone of good character do that?

Stephens' emphasis on character apparently doesn't apply in equal measure to presidents like Franklin D. Roosevelt, who had a mistress, and John F. Kennedy, who had a series of paramours. Then there are the lies Kennedy and LBJ told about Vietnam, lies that needlessly led to the deaths of more than 58,000 Americans. Were these people known for their good character?

Stephens quotes the late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-NY):

"The central conservative truth is that it is culture, not politics that determines the success of a society."

How's that working out in the culture of sexual harassment, Opioid addiction, a decline in educational achievement, especially among poor minorities trapped in underperforming schools, and in "entertainment," which often borders on soft porn, not to mention the frequent use of words that generations ago would have gotten your mouth washed out with soap?

Stephens then lists some of the president's less appealing character qualities. For argument's sake, let's concede he's right about all of them. Now what? Would he feel better if a well-spoken liberal were president, populating the courts with lefties who would finish shredding the Constitution, and continue abortions on demand?

What about the character of liberal politicians in cities like Chicago and Baltimore where murders have become commonplace and many of those not personally affected by the carnage simply shrug and turn away? The Baltimore Sun reports there were 342 homicides in that city in 2017 -- a new per capita record. Maybe the mayor has good table manners and that is enough for Stephens.

What the elites detest is a Republican who fights back. Some believe the president fights dirty. Maybe he does. Does the policy end justify the political means? Not always, but neither do liberal ends justify the means they use to achieve their goals.

Politics is not about manners and being thought of as nice. Politics is a nasty business. Sure there are some who are both noble and victorious, but we haven't seen their kind in a while. Most Republicans who are noble and deferential to Democrats get nothing in return.

When Stephens was chosen as a Times columnist, many liberal readers expressed outrage. Not to worry, he's coming your way and is bringing his good manners with him.

 After Years Of Stagnation Under Obama 
Household Income Hits 50-Year High

Image result for money

Former President Barack Obama got plenty of praise for shepherding us through the recovery from the 2008 economic crisis. However, those on Main Street, USA, knew the truth — things weren’t any better than they had been when George W. Bush left office.

As The Weekly Standard reported in 2016, median household income when Obama came into office in 2009 was $56,731. In 2015, six years into his presidency, that number was $56,516 — a decrease of just over $200.

By the time he left office, it’s true that media household income had risen to $59,471 — but that was essentially the same as it had been in December, 2007, at the end of the “Great Recession” and just a few weeks before Obama took office, when it was $59,549.

So, how’s The Donald doing?

Well, as Investor’s Business Daily reported, a new study from Sentier Research found that the median household income in April was $61,483 — a 50-year high.

That’s up from $59,471 in January of 2017.

The firm tracks income using census data and adjusts for inflation — so even a slightly weaker dollar doesn’t account for the increase.

Bad News For Dems: Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump … And He's Getting Credit For It!!! 

Household Income Hits All-Time High Under Trump, And He's Getting Credit For It

A new report shows that the median household income has climbed 3% since President Trump took office. It's another sign of a strong economy, and at least one poll shows the public credits Trump for...

That’s great news for the country, but maybe not the best news for Democrats.

“This is just another indication that the economy has notably strengthened under Trump. And polls show that the public’s mood has brightened considerably as a result,” Investor’s Business Daily reported.

“The latest IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism Index is 53.6. This index has been in positive territory (anything over 50 is optimistic) since Trump took office. The Quality of Life Index, meanwhile, hit a 14-year high in May and the Financial Stress Index is at an all-time low.”

That economic data is followed by a lot of polls that seem to show that the “blue wave” expected in the November midterms breaking and rolling back into the sea.

A new Reuters poll found that a generic Republican would beat a generic Democrat by six points. Back in March, the Democrats were up by nine points. A CBS poll found that Democrats had a two-point advantage on the generic ballot — hardly “wave” material.

The CBS poll also found that 68 percent of Americans believed Trump’s policies deserved at least some of the credit for the economic situation, with 35 percent saying he deserved a “great deal” of the credit.

Sixty-four percent of respondents rated the economy as “somewhat good” or “very good.” In a CNN poll, 57 percent of voters said that “things are going well in the U.S.” In February, that was 49 percent.

Perhaps the most important figure: Under Obama, when Gallup asked whether it was a good time to find “a quality job in the U.S.,” the highest number that administration ever achieved was 45 percent. Under Trump, that number is 67 percent — the highest number in the 17-year history of the poll.

While Trump’s personal numbers haven’t seen the same bounce, they’re still up — and that’s the important thing. Thanks to the relentless campaign of personal attacks against him, Trump’s stated approval rating has always been a lot lower than it probably is.

Don’t believe me? Just ask Hillary Clinton. For all of the personal barbs and attacks, 2016 ultimately came down to the economy. So will 2018 — and that’s not good news for the Democrats.
