The liberal media have finally conceded that COVID-19 may have originated in a Wuhan laboratory - after a year spent ridiculing the suggestion. The first fatality from COVID-19 was reported by Chinese state media on January 11, 2020, when a 61-year-old man who was a regular customer at a market in Wuhan died. The first confirmed case in the United States was 10 days later, when a man returned to Washington state from Wuhan. Within a week, on January 26, 2020, the first article blaming the Wuhan Institute of Virology for the outbreak was published, in The Washington Times. Yet most mainstream media disputed the claims, dismissing them outright or even decrying them as racist. When Donald Trump, on May 1, 2020, said he had 'a high degree of confidence' that the virus escaped from a lab, the New York Times, CNN, and NPR were quick to mock his comments. CNN, which by the end of the Trump administration was brazen in its hostility to the president and his advisors, was almost gleeful in its mockery of the idea that the virus could have come from a laboratory. The Washington Post, New York Times, and NPR were equally dismissive of suggestions that the virus could have come from a laboratory.
One of the great paleo-conservative thinkers of the pre-Reagan era is WND columnist Pat Buchanan. I had the privilege of meeting and sharing a stage with him as a young Christian activist in Oregon around 1990, and have always benefited from the insights and observations in his writings. The main issue that separates paleo-conservatives from neo-conservatives is war-policy: the paleos are the original America First champions, firmly against unnecessary foreign wars, and the neo-cons seem to have never met a war they didn't like. Pat's piece this past week was about the geopolitics of oil and natural gas pipelines, specifically Russia's pipeline to Germany, and thus all Europe.
The main reason the neo-cons joined with the leftists to take down President Trump's presidency was his opposition to foreign wars and his successful pursuit of domestic energy independence. The leftists hate Trump for many reasons, but the neo-cons have primarily one. You see, the wars of at least the past half-century have almost always been related to the projection of American military power to control oil and gas resources on foreign soil.
Pat Buchanan wrote: "Issue: Nord Stream 2, the Baltic Sea pipeline Vladimir Putin is building to complement his Nord Stream 1 and carry more natural gas from Russia to Germany, and from there to other NATO nations. … What is behind American opposition …? First, the pipelines bypass Ukraine and Poland, cutting those countries out of the transit revenue. Second, we want Germany to buy our own shale-produced natural gas." The rest of the article focuses on the question of whether Germany is wrong to partner with Russia in this. He reveals his own view, writing, "[Post Glasnost] Russia was no longer the largest captive nation of communism but a nation reaching out in friendship to the United States. … [But] Having won the Cold War, and unable to find a new mission, we started a second Cold War to contain the new [significantly shrunken] Russia – this time at the borders of Belarus, Ukraine and Georgia, as we had once contained the old USSR at the River Elbe."
I would add that the second Cold War ran rather lukewarm until, as secretary of state under Obama in 2009, Hillary Clinton presented a "reset button" stage prop to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to signal a new season of cooperation between our nations. But, in retrospect, that season of thaw appears to have been just another Clinton Crime Family scam, in this case to enrich themselves through such deals as the Uranium One scandal.
Trump won the election - but lost His presidency- Here is why
By Bob Barney:
Right from the start of this piece, I want to make it clear that I think it is obvious that Democrats stole this past election by probably over 10-12 million fake votes, as well as trashing probably several million of Trump votes. However, that is not the point of this article. I have been warning for over 3 years that President Trump was setting up his own destruction by #1 His arrogance and #2 His pure stupidity of picking his team. In a July 2019 story I posted called: Trump Could Be the Next George H.W. Bush??--I made the suggestion that Trump, although popular was following many of the same mistakes George Bush made in 1991 and 1992 listening to advisers that did not have his best interests in mind. I also posted another article named:Ever-Trumpers- about moronic EVER-TRUMPER's, every-time a negative story comes out about him, they claim it's all a plan of Trump (citing the moronic Q-anon nonsense) and that he is winning everywhere. They compare him to a God-like hero who never can make a mistake. Trump's ego liked this very well as well.
Again in January 2019 The 'Deep State' Calls Are Coming From Inside Trump's White House my article started out ":
Reposted. Run Dec 18 2018
Forward by Bob Barney... With the appointment of another Deep State, Never Trumper Mick Mulvaney, Trump has again picked an insider that does not agree with the Trump agenda, and may actually work against him, maybe even helping himget impeached. I know that there are people out there that thinks Trump is the smartest man in the world, but he is certainly not acting like he is, in fact he is acting against the interest of those who supported him IN FAVOR of globalist in many areas.
Steve Bannon reportedly has told people he thinks President Donald Trump has just a 30% chance of completing his four-year term. I starting to agree!
According to two of the sources, Bannon warned Trump several months ago about the possibility of getting removed from office via the 25th Amendment, prompting Trump to ask, "What's that?"
A stipulation of the 25th Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet — that is, 13 of 24 Cabinet members — to vote the president out of office. Bannon reportedly considered it a more likely scenario than Trump's impeachment.
So that’s consistent. Like Pence, Pompeo has also denied being the author, but Bob Woodward’s book Fear makes numerous points from various members of Trump’s cabinet and staff which are also consistent with the op-ed.
According to Woodward’s book, Secretary of Defense James Mattis once said that Trump “acted like — and had the understanding of — a fifth- or sixth-grader.” The president’s poor understanding of global diplomacy occurred during a meeting about troops on the Korean Peninsula.
John Kelly called Trump an “idiot” who has “gone off the rails” to “Crazytown.”
In a bid to thwart a third world war, aides reportedly hid documents from Trump. James Mattis apparently once snapped at Trump that “We’re doing this in order to prevewww.rawstory.com/...nt World War III,” after he was asked why the U.S. is spending money to detect North Korean missile launches. (This was part of the same exchange that led to former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson supposedly called Trump a “fucking moron.”)
- Following the launch of chemical attacks against his own people, Syria’s Bashar al-Assad apparently almost became a target of U.S. assassination. According to Woodward’s sources, when the president heard news of the attack, he exploded and ranted “Let’s kill the f*cking lot of them.” Aides convinced him to instead opt for an air strike.
- Several staffers have snatched paperwork from the Oval Office desk to protect the nation. In one case, an aide swiped a letter that would have withdrawn the U.S. from a trade agreement with South Korea that affects our ability to monitor North Korean nukes. “I stole it off his desk,” former chief economic adviser Gary Cohn said, according to the report. “I wouldn’t let him see it. He’s never going to see that document.”
Former staff secretary Rob Porter said he also stole documents off the Resolute desk. “A third of my job was trying to react to some of the really dangerous ideas that he had and try to give him reasons to believe that maybe they weren’t such good ideas,” Porter reportedly said.
This all matches Scarramucci’s claim that there are people in the WH who think they have to protect the country from Trump.
“There are people inside the administration who think it is their job to save America from this president,” Scaramucci said on CNN’s "New Day."
“That is not their job. Their job is to inject this president into Americaso that he can explain his views properly and his policies, so we can transform America and drain the swamp and make the system fairer for the middle- and lower-income people,” Scaramucci continued.
Er, what? And also, ewww. MORE
All along the way, Trump has made decisions to surround himself with Never Trumper's, then gets mad when these people turn on him. Those who supported Donald Trump like Rudy Guilani were overlooked when Trump put his cabinet together.
IF TRUMP NAMED RUDY as ATTORNEY-GENERAL- NONE OF THE LAST 4 Years would have been the same!
Guiliani would have fired the directors of the FBI and all those behind the phony Russia-gate nonsense. He would have indicted James Comey, Andrew McCabe and probably even Hillary Clinton!
Why Trump dissed his own supporters for "Deep Staters" has boggled my mind since day 1! Many of these have given interviews (especially on NewsMax TV) opening wondering why Trump kept picking deep staters, which he did!
In the end, Trump will not be president in Feb 2021, not because he didn't win the election, as I believe he did, but because in his arrogance, he ignored those he should have trusted, and trusted his enemies.
The Plain Truth on TRUMP. warnings we gave for 3 years!
Over the years the Plain Truth ran quite a few articles on Donald Trump, and what to worry about. I'll be plain... Trump won in 2020 by a landslide, but some of his own actions helped his "defeat!"
A History of our articles!
First published almost two (2) years ago, and updated several months ago, I predicted that some of Trump's woes can be traced to his own arrogance. Impeachment is a sham, but he lost some of his public support by his own actions and choices, especially this FAKE pandemic that he has been snookered by
According to the Biblical book of Daniel, the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, who God called "His annotated king" suffered from a mental illness, brought on by refusing to acknowledge God for his wealth, lived in isolated for seven years, in a state of insanity. Why? His ego! Trump could learn for him.
Daniel on the Madness of Nebuchadnezzar
[4.29] At the end of the twelve months Nebuchadnezzar was walking about the royal palace of Babylon.
[4.30] The king spoke, saying, "Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?"
[4.31] While the word was still in the king's mouth, a voice fell from heaven: "King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken: "The kingdom has departed from you!"
[4.32] And they shall drive you from men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field. They shall make you eat grass like oxen; and seven years shall pass over you, until you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses."
[4.33] That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles' feathers and his nails like birds' claws.
TRUMP's WORDS SIMILAR TO the ancient King of Babylon!
Bad News - Blood in the water will only get the anti-Trump sharks going for more. Trump should have NEVER fired him!

You Read My Prediction here first! Last Summer! Maybe I was right!
A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR MEANS THE 2018 ELECTIONS ARE LIFE OR DEATH FOR THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY
The deep state is orchestrating a political coup against President Trump, and this latest move makes it clear that they are going for the jugular.
Up until Barack Obama, my predictions for the presidency were quite accurate, going all the way to 1976 (wrong only in the 92 election). Back in 1976, I wrote a thesis in college on how a psychological condition known as cognitive dissonance, could explain elections in America. It was based on the theory (named cognitive dissonance), which in simple terms simply meant that people in their own life's conflicts, switch drastically like a pendulum on a clock from left to right. After tragedies or other traumatic events occur in their lives, most people try to "get back to normal" but never can.
Cognitive dissonance was first investigated by Leon Festinger, arising out of a participant observation study of a cult which believed that the earth was going to be destroyed by a flood, and what happened to its members — particularly the really committed ones who had given up their homes and jobs to work for the cult — when the flood did not happen.
While fringe members were more inclined to recognize that they had made fools of themselves and to "put it down to experience," committed members were more likely to re-interpret the evidence to show that they were right all along (the earth was not destroyed because of the faithfulness of the cult members).
Festinger's (1957) cognitive dissonance theory suggests that we have an inner drive to hold all our attitudes and behavior in harmony and avoid disharmony (or dissonance). This is known as the principle of cognitive consistency.
When there is an inconsistency between attitudes or behaviors (dissonance), something must change to eliminate the dissonance. Notice that dissonance theory does not state that these modes of dissonance reduction will actually work, only that individuals who are in a state of cognitive dissonance will take steps to reduce the extent of their dissonance.
The theory of cognitive dissonance has been widely researched in a number of situations to develop the basic idea in more detail, and various factors that have been identified which may be important in attitude change.
With this in mind, my theory was this same phenomenon applies to nations, and especially nations like America with free elections. In my theory I predicted that America always looked for balance between liberalism and conservatism. However, when we go into the voting booth--- we tend to actually choose candidates that are on the very left, or very to the right! This is the cognitive dissonance theory as applied to nations in the same way it is applied to people. Hollywood, is full of movies based on cognitive dissonance: It's like the old time movie theme's based on this effect where the whore who becomes the nun... The crooked politician who becomes the honest politician... And stories with a hero or heroine swap from one extreme to another.
With that background out of the way, I would normally project as I did in 2016, that the election would be a change election and that America would radically shift back away from globalism, Obamaism and crooked Washington politics. So in a normal year, Donald Trump should win as did Ronald Reagan back in 1980.
My Prediction Trump will win easily:
I guess many would conclude now that with my theory, Biden should win easily in a landslide, but I think that is not the case. People swing back and forth from left to right after YEARS of agony. I suggest, although many do not like Trump, they will see that under Trump their lives were more "normal" and thus better than under Obama, or George Bush.
Don't forget, Donald Trump is ten times more popular with a great minority of Americans than Richard Nixon ever was. Nixon, was probably the most distrusted and hated president in recent memory. He wasn't likable, even by those who thought he was a very good president! Nixon, like Trump barely won the 1968 election (the nation was tiring of Vietnam, but the "swing" against the war had not fully evolved) but by 1972, won in the largest landslide in history, a record that still is unbroken. Not even Ronald Reagan beat Nixon's landslide. By 1972, the nation was in "dissonance" and fully rejected the very liberal, socialist Democratic Party. People held their noses and voted for Nixon.
I believe that the great "swing" started in 2016, like the 1968 election, and this year will be the full swing..... If I am right, Trump will not only win, he will win big. States that should normally vote "D" will switch to Trump. Why? COVID! That's right, it's the Democrats locking down their states that will lead to a radically swing in the election. People not in a balanced state. Suicides, depression, and anger is at all time highs causing stress, and these people have that inner drive to hold all our attitudes and behavior in harmony and avoid disharmony (or dissonance). I believe these people will vote Trump.
I also believe that the Republicans will take the house and keep the Senate.....
I may be very wrong about when the "swing" happens, but truly doubt it.
AMERICA IS FOUND IN the Bible and WE WILL FALL TO COMMUNISM SOMEDAY:
No matter what happens Tuesday, be aware that God has already predicted the end of American freedom and being enslaved by the aliens living among us. This is going to happen!
When we read the Bible, which was written about 2,000-3,000 years ago, we often don't get the "feel of it" and how it relates to what is going on today, especially when reading prophecy about the end times and which nations are going to be involved. We read about Israel, of course, as well as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Ethiopia and a list of unrecognizable nations and names. Yet what about nations like China, Russia, Germany, Italy, England or the United States? Why aren't they mentioned in our Bible? How can it be, if the Bible is the word of God, that he didn't know that these modern nations would exist? After all, if God knows the future, didn't God know about the United States or Europe or China? How can we trust prophecy or understand it when most of the time the scenario just doesn't fit what we know about the world today? Is there going to be another Assyrian Empire as the Bible claims? Does Assyria even exist today? Is Greece going to be the most powerful nation under another Alexander the Great as the book of Daniel suggests? It doesn't seem very likely to me and I am sure not to most of you either. Are we indeed living in the end times and how can we know what to look for and what today's news means? Will the world as we know it really ever end, as Jesus foretold?
Believe it or not, the Bible is as current and relevant today as the day when it was first written. The fact is that it is even more relevant today because much of what was predicted by the prophets was meant for today and beyond and not for the time these men were living! The hard-to-pronounce nations mentioned in the pages of prophecy written so ,long ago still exist, and you can prove it to yourself! God has given us tools to understand His predictions for our world and has had uncanny accuracy that nobody could ever duplicate without divine influence. God has rightly predicted:
the fall of Babylon
The fall of Assyria
The fall of Alexander
The fall of Rome 7 times (it has now fallen five or six times depending on what expert you believe!)
Chernobyl by name!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Global man-made pollution
the Muslim religion and their fight with Europe known as Crusades and the final yet to come conflict between these two powerful regions
The rise of England and the USA to be two most powerful nations ever to exist on this planet!
That England would have a monarchy, and that monarchy would claim to be David's descendants and that they would sit on his literal throne over the same rock that David himself was coronated over.
The #13 would be important to the United States of America and that our form of government would be by election and not by a divine monarchy from the line of David.
The increase in knowledge all within the span of one generation. Has there ever been an increase of knowledge since the foundation of the world to equal 1930-2050 (taking the Biblical 120 years as the generation of a man)
Worldwide famine and diseases unlike ever to have occurred in the history of the world
A great false Christianity that would rule the world when at the time predicted, the name of Christ was known but by few people on earth and that knowledge could actually get you killed!
That Jerusalem would always be the center of world conflict... Name any other city in the world that always been in the center of world conflict? Name any city? This prophecy concerning Jerusalem was made over 2500 years ago!
That mankind would never live longer than 120 years old. Has modern science been able to change this fact told to us by God 4,000 years ago?
African slavery, and also a blessing to black people!
Communism as a "new" form of government that would fool and sweep throughout the world, except Muslim nations.
These are the predictions that God has made and most have already come true and the fact of their accuracy cannot be honestly intelligently disputed. So what about the future? What does the Bible and God have to say about what is still yet to happen. To understand, we must be able to identity the nations of the Bible and who those people are today and where they live. You will see that the major nations of today are indeed the same nations called by different names in the pages of God's word.
Believe it or not, if you believe in the Bible, then you must also believe in God's prophecies. Concerning the USA, and all Anglo-Saxon nations of the world, we are destined into captivity and destruction. This will happen. When it will happen, I have no idea. But to understand this better read my articles: America in Biblical Prophecy and
President Donald Trump’s approval with black voters rose nine points during the Republican National Convention, according to a Hill-HarrisX poll conducted August 22-25.
The poll asked one question: “Do you approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as President of the United States?”
The Hill reported:
Twenty-four percent of registered black voters in the Aug. 22-25 survey, which included the first two days of the convention, said they approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 76 percent said they disapprove.
That is up 9 points from the previous survey conducted Aug. 8-11, where the President received 15 percent support among this group.
The survey found support among Hispanic voters also grew by 2 percentage points, from 30 percent in the last poll to 32 percent in this most recent survey.
The poll conducted an online survey of 2,861 registered voters. Among Republicans, 82 percent approve of Trump while 18 percent disapprove.
A Zogby poll of 901 “likely voters” published on Wednesday reported Trump’s approval at 52 percent, with a 47 percent disapproval rating. More narrowly, the president had a 36 percent approval rating with blacks, a 37 percent approval rating with Hispanics, and a 35 percent approval rating with Asians.
Ten percent of black and Hispanic voters changed their support from former Vice President Joe Biden to Trump over a two-month period, according to a CNN poll published on August 16.
A new CNN poll about the race between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden shows what amounts a statistical dead heat among registered voters nationwide and a virtual tie in battleground states.
The poll found that 50 percent of those polled support Biden while 46 percent support Trump. However, the margin of error for results among registered voters is 4 percentage points, which means Trump and Biden could be in a tie.
The poll also found that since the June CNN poll, Biden has slipped by 5 percentage points in the poll while Trump the president has gathered strength. In June, the former vice president was at 55 percent support while Trump was at 41 percent support.
On Newsmax TV’s “Spicer & Co.,” David Stockman, the head of the Office of Management and Budget under President Reagan and the “father of Reaganomics,” said President Trump is “the victim of malpractice by his doctors.”
Stockman says the American population is actually three countries – those under 16 who have suffered only five deaths from Coronavirus but suffer an average of 44,000 deaths per year from other causes; those from 16 to 64, and those over 64, who experience the highest death rate by far.
“What we should be doing is keeping the schools open, the commerce open, the market place and jobs open, and sheltering and isolating and protecting and treating and assisting the elderly , especially those that have one or two or three diseases which are especially vulnerable to this virus.”
Instead, he said, the Presidents’ medical advisors “recommended one-size-fits-all to cope with this Coronavirus. That is upside down and, excuse my French, ass backwards when it comes to what we should be doing.”
However, Stockman said, we have “an economy falling apart” because Democrats “are now digging in, trying to exaggerate enormously the threat of this thing and supporting mayors and governors who are basically sabotaging their own economies and then they come whining to Washington for bailouts because their revenues are drying up.”
Stockman added, “I have never seen anything this crazy. I have never seen a hysteria like this. We are literally destroying the fiscal viability of this country.”
He also took a few shots at Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, saying, “He’s no hero in my view. He’s a pretentious windbag, as far as I am concerned…and his advice should be totally ignored.
“When you have a risk of death for grandparents and great grandparents that is 7,600 times larger than for the kids, and 20 times larger than for the working population, it is bad advice, even medically, to tell the president to shut down the whole country.”

'The world's most overrated General': Trump slams Jim Mattis and falsely claims he gave him 'Mad Dog' nickname - after former defense secretary compared him to a NAZI and accused him of 'making mockery of the Constitution'
Donald Trump is slamming former Defense Secretary James Mattis as the 'world's most overrated general' after the official published a scalding op-ed denouncing the president's leadership. Mattis finally broke his silence following his exit from the White House and blasted Trump as a 'mockery of the Constitution' in a fiery statement shared Wednesday. He even compared Trump's divisive tactics to those of the Nazis, and noted that U.S. troops found unity in their strength. 'Probably the only thing Barack Obama & I have in common is that we both had the honor of firing Jim Mattis, the world's most overrated General. I asked for his letter of resignation, & felt great about it,' Trump tweeted Wednesday evening. While Trump claimed that he fired Mattis, the general had submitted his resignation in December 2018 after he disagreed with Trump's decision to pull US forces out of Syria.
I couldn't agree with this story and more! Trump with all his warts is still better than what we have gotten over the past
We’re told by Democrats like Joe Biden that if Trump isn’t defeated, “the character of this nation will be fundamentally and forever altered.”
Has he checked on his own party, lately?
Biden seeks to lead a party full of activists who wish death on a conservative donor who invested in causes he cared about.
The internationalists with whom Biden claims kinship publicly wish for powerful hurricanes to kill Americans and destroy our property.
The people who fund Biden’s party openly advocate a return to McCarthyism, hoping to destroy the livelihoods of conservatives unwilling to acquiesce to liberal orthodoxy.
Death. Destruction. Personal ruin. All conditions wished upon conservatives by liberal Democrats, famous and ordinary, trained to hate by political leaders who blame Trump for the ills of the world while themselves obtusely accusing him of hate and death.
What voters do they hope to persuade with these savage threats and browbeating? When they do engage in policy discourse, it is filled with narrative instead of truth, lies instead of facts. They’ve become what they claim to hate.
Trump’s no angel. He frequently sets a bad example by taunting and insulting his enemies and engaging in untruthful hyperbole on matters large and small. His antics range from head scratching to cringe worthy. He makes thing harder than they ought to be.

Updated note on this story..May 2020 : Back in 2001, Saturday Nite did a skit, showing how no Democrat had a chance of beating Bush! Few may remember that Bush had an 81% approval rating in July 1991. ONLY 13% disapproved his performance! Trump has barely broken 50% approval at any time, and about the same disapproval... I understand that the totally blind and moronic EVER-TRUMPERS will only believe those polls that show Trump as a messiah, but the Plain Truth is Trump is heading for disaster if he doesn't change his tone-- And if Trump is beat by any Democrat candidate running, AMERICA IS TOAST! (although it might already be!)
Now with this fake pandemic, which Trump has bought into (stupidly claiming he saved 2 million lives) is a slap in the face of one of his largest voting blocks- i.e: small businesses, which many have been destroyed BY THIS PRESIDENT'S ACTION. This may be a democrat ploy to get him out, but he is the man pushing the agenda!
-- Donald Trump is dangerously close to becoming the first Republican president since George H.W. Bush to raise taxes. According to the Tax Foundation, if the tariffs already announced by Trump go into effect, they will amount to a $200 billion annual tax increase. That’s larger than the $165 billion average annual reduction in 2017’s Tax Cut and Jobs Act.
WELL SOME EVER TRUMPERS DO!
It's become an increasingly nauseating spectacle and last night, President Trump reached a new low with a press briefing performance that was frankly an utter disgrace. In a preposterous claim, Trump announced he has 'total authority' as President to make any decision he likes. When asked if he could order state governors to remove lockdown restrictions and reopen the US economy, Trump replied: 'When somebody is the president of the United States, the authority is total and that's the way it's gonna be. It's total. It's total. The governors know that.' He was immediately challenged by CNN's Kaitlan Collins who said, 'that is not true', and asked him which governors had agreed that he could overrule them. 'I haven't asked anybody,' Trump snarled back. 'You know why? Because I don't have to.' When Collins courageously persisted, saying 'but who told you the president has total authority?' Trump simply raised his finger and said: 'Enough.' Yet she was right, and he was wrong. New York governor Andrew Cuomo, whose calm, authoritative leadership during the crisis has been a masterclass in how to handle such a seismic event, was quick to deny Trump's absurd claim. 'The president does not have total authority,' he said. 'We have a constitution, we don't have a king.' Exactly. Nor does America have an Emperor, much as Donald Trump likes to think he's one.

Before getting bashed by the zombie-like Trump supporters, let me state that I wanted Trump to be president. I have done very well in the Trump years, and so have most small business owners that I know. Trump has been great for the economy until now, with little help from his own party and no help from the media or the democrats. That being said, I am beginning to see a new phenomena out there that I haven't seen since Obama was elected - The zombie-hero worshipping fan that knows everything about nothing. The stupidity of those that supported Obama, and considered him to be a God-like figure, which, at the time, I wrote about in disgust 11 years ago, has now been supplanted with the moronic EVER-TRUMPER. You see them every-time a negative story comes out about him. To these nitwits (and that is what they are) Trump is a God-like figure that can do nothing wrong. He is a genius (probably the smartest guy who has ever lived) that controls everyone and everything, just like God.
When the corona so called crisis first hit and Donald Trump called it a cold, the ever-trumpers agreed. Sean Hannity called it a plot to do what impeachment couldn't - a deep state plot to remove Trump. When the CDC and liberals attacked Trump for not ordering the shutdown of businesses and the economy, these anti-Trump crusaders were anti-American.... Then Trump started to follow their advice - the advice from the media, deep state and medical community! What a turn around. All of a sudden, these ever-Trumpers got on the bandwagon. Calling out those who disagreed with the president. "He is trying to save 2 million lives," they retorted when asked why a shutdown was needed. The Deep State was good again (boy that was a short-lived hatred) and we need big government to control our lives, decide what everyone can do. Big Pharma and the medical community are now the heroes, you know the same people behind 200 million abortions. (The same people you know that if they could would remove Trump from office. 60-70% of this same medical medical community are liberal democrats)
A month ago, when I wrote articles and Face Book messages condemning the quarantine that democratic-led states where imposing, I was the voice of all Ever-Trumpers who eagerly agreed all of this coronavirus hype was nonsense. Then Trump changed direction by calling for a complete shutdown, destroying the very economy he himself built! Two weeks ago, the old Trump emerged for 3 days \, had a downhill and said that America had to reopen and we couldn't listen to the doctors at the cost of killing the economy. Then, out of the woodwork, the ever-Trumpers started calling the cure "worse than the disease," and the economy had to be saved.
However, after three days, Trump got back on the deep state bandwagon leaving his blind followers to have to change their position again. NO, now the cure is needed, even if we have to forgo the economy, the Bill of Rights, elections, or even our freedom. Yes, the disease that has killed about .0000000001% of the population has become the greatest disease to ever face mankind! GOD IS DEAD, or at least the God of the Bible, and our only hope is what Donald Trump decides to do. I disagree.
A Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee who voted for articles of impeachment against President Trump for a phone call with Ukraine's president has her own Ukrainian connections.
Some $700,000 worth of connections, reports the Federalist.
Robert Powell, the husband of Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., received $700,00 from a Ukrainian oligarch named Igor Kolomoisky, according to a Daily Beast report.

Dates and numbers have hidden meaning to God, as I suggest you read the story directly below this one or HERE.
13 is the number of America, and a sign of who we are. The Democrats trying to destroy America on this date is noted!
Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee this week trotted out a trio of supposedly dispassionate legal experts to explain why the impeachment of President Trump was justified.
But however smart scholars such as Michael Gerhardt, distinguished professor of constitutional law at University of North Carolina, might be, they aren’t above peddling partisan absurdities. Once Gerhardt argued that Trump’s behavior was “worse than the misconduct of any prior president,” we no longer had any obligation to take him seriously on the topic.
History began before 2016, and there are at least a dozen instances of presidential misconduct that are both morally and constitutionally “worse” than Trump’s blundering attempt to launch a self-serving Ukrainian investigation into his rival’s shady son.
Let’s ignore for a moment that American presidents have owned their fellow human beings and focus instead on the fact that in 1942, the president of the United States signed an executive order to unilaterally intern some 120,000 Japanese-Americans. Not only was the policy racist, it amounted to a full-bore attack on about half the Constitution he had sworn to uphold.
Woodrow Wilson — who regularly said things like, “a negro’s place is in the corn field” — re-segregated the civil service, personally firing more than a dozen supervisors for the sin of being black. He also threw dissenters and political adversaries into prison, instructed the postmaster to refuse delivery of literature he deemed unpatriotic and created an unconstitutional civilian police force that targeted Americans for political dissent. All of what Wilson did was “worse.”
With the approval Tuesday of Judge Robert J. Luck by a 64-31 vote, the 11th Circuit become the third federal appeals court to flip to a majority of Republican-appointed active judges under Trump, the Washington Times reported.
Luck was appointed to the Florida Supreme Court earlier this year by Gov. Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
The 11th Circuit now has six active Republican-appointed judges and six Democratic-appointed ones. With the addition of senior judges to that count, the circuit has 11 Republican-appointed and nine Democratic.
Mike Davis, president of The Article III Project, explained to the Washington Times that cases deciding binding law require the full panel of active judges.
"As you see, President Trump flips these critically important federal circuit courts and transform the judiciary; it reminds Republicans and conservatives why elections matter," Davis said.
Devin Nunes on Wednesday led the Republican defense of Donald Trump in the first public impeachment hearing, charging Democrats with being obsessed with claims the president colluded with Russia in the 2016 election.
He also charged Democrats tried to get nude photos of the president and brought up the infamous, unproven Steele dossier that claimed the Russians had blackmail material on Trump.
'We are asked to simply forget about Democrats on this committee falsely claiming they had more than circumstantial evidence of collusion, between President Trump and Russians,' the Republican congressman from California said in his opening statement.
NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump's former U.N. ambassador, Nikki Haley, alleges in her upcoming memoir that two administration officials who were ultimately pushed out by Trump once tried to get her to join them in opposing some of his policies.
In "With All Due Respect," Haley said then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and then-White House chief of staff John Kelly told her that they were trying to "save the country." Haley writes that she was "shocked" by the request, made during a closed-door meeting, and thought they were only trying to put their own imprint on his policies.
"Kelly and Tillerson confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren't being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country," Haley wrote. "It was their decisions, not the president's, that were in the best interests of America, they said. The president didn't know what he was doing. ... Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president's decisions was because, if he didn't, people would die."
The former South Carolina governor said the meeting lasted more than an hour and that they never raised the issue to her again.
Haley's book comes out Tuesday.
At one minute before the stroke of midnight on Oct. 25, thousands of self-identified witches plan to simultaneously conduct a ritual meant to "bind" President Trump "and all those who abet him."
The practice has taken place monthly since Trump's inauguration, notes Michael Snyder on his End of the American Dream blog, but with Halloween approaching and an impeachment inquiry underway, it's getting renewed media attention. MORE>>>>

Before getting bashed by the zombie Trump supporter let me state that I wanted Trump to be president. I have done very well in the Trump years, and so have most small business owners that I know. Trump has been great for the economy so far, with little help from his own party and no help from the media or the democrats. That being said, I am beginning to see a new phenomena out there that I haven't seen since Obama was elected - The zombie-hero worshipping fan that knows everything about nothing. The stupidity of those that supported Obama, and considered him to be a God-like figure, which, at the time, I wrote about in disgust 11 years ago, has now been supplanted with the moronic EVER-TRUMPER. You see them every-time a negative story comes out about him. To these nitwits (and that is what they are) Trump is a God-like figure that can do nothing wrong. He is a genius (probably the smartest guy who has ever lived) that controls everyone and everything, just like God. According to "Q" he planned the Russian collusion fiasco that backfired on the left. They suggested that Mueller and Trump planned the entire investigation together.
Any news that doesn't portray Trump has the greatest human being to have ever existed is demonized as left winged journalism. Here is an example from the Daily Caller (hardly an anti-Trump new site, once controlled by Tucker Carlson.):
US Steel Announces Layoffs In Michigan, Hurting Trump’s Claims Of An Industry Revival
The story shows that the steel industry, which Trump touts as his greatest achievement is doing poorly. The United States Steel Corporation plans to lay off fewer than 200 workers at a Michigan facility, according to the company’s filings with the state of Michigan. News of the layoffs comes after President Donald Trump said last week at Shell Pennsylvania Petrochemicals Complex in Monaca, Pennsylvania that his 25% tariff on foreign imports helped change the steel business from “dead” to “thriving.” (By the way, the thousands of Shell employees at his rally were paid to be there by Shell Oil!)
The Plain Truth is that while domestic steel prices rose immediately after Trump’s tariffs, they have also fallen as auto and farm machinery sectors weaken demand, according to Reuters. Hot-rolled coil prices have fallen almost 37% since 2018 and U.S. Steel’s stock price dropped 73% since March 2018.
Trumpites got mad at this fake news: Some examples of their ramblings on the comment section of the story:
