Anti-Semitism simmers just under the surface in America; sometimes it bubbles up!

Tagged:  

Here's a link to the latest story I have found on this topic: http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/02/27/jewish-community-center-bomb-thre...
If you read the entire article, you will note that there has been a significant increase in anti-Semitic threats and actions since January, 2017. Is this a coincidence? Yeah! Right!

Is This the Start of Something sinister?

Lyin' Don's White House is now the house of censorship. News organizations which are too critical of the current administration were barred today (Friday, February 24, 2017)!
John McCain defended a free press in a most articulate way, before today's censorship. This from USA Today: "If you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free -- and many times adversarial — press," said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., speaking on NBC's Meet The Press. "And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time — that's how dictators get started."

What a loving relationship!

Melenia and the Red Baron will live in New York while the Donald lives in Washington.
What a loving marriage. Is there any doubt that Melania was purchased by Trump for show,
a trophy wife as they say. What a waste of a beautiful woman!
You can tell this is the case when you video's of Trump getting out of a limo walking ahead and not waiting for her.

Awaiting use of a "big stick" on North Korea

Tagged:  

As a candidate, Lyin' Don the Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like, talked really, really tough about America's enemies. One of those enemies was, and is, North Korea. In a most untypical fashion, after North Korea tested a medium-range ballistic missile, Lyin' Don stood in silence and let Japan's Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, make a strong statement of condemnation of North Korea's provocative act. Lyin' Don then made a very short statement of full support for Japan's position on this issue.

Trump, one lying SOB!

Our new Potus is denying he knew anything about anyone in his campaign talking to Russia .He is one lying SOB. Hopefully when the prof is verified, the spineless right wing conservatives get a set of nuts and impeach this Clown instead of kissing his ass.!
I believe that Pence didn't know anything about it. That is why trump chose him because he is a dimwit and can be easily manipulated.

Immigration Timeline

Thought this timeline would add some fact clarity to the topic:

President Trump doing a great job

Tagged:  

For me immigration came a close number 2 to the Supreme Court pick. The President will win the immigration war if he sticks to his principles and ignores the national media.

One way or the other Americans will pay for whatever kind of "wall" is built along the U.S.-Mexico border

The most likely scenario is that if, and that's a big "if," the Congress actually passes significant tariffs on imports from Mexico, or any other nation(s), retribution is sure to occur. The long history of tariffs is that when one major nation imposes tariffs, its trading partner(s) impose(s) tariffs in retaliation. And, if a real tariff war starts, ALL BUSINESSES LOSE! It can exacerbate economic problems. At worst, tariff retaliation wars can cause worldwide recessions, or even depressions.

2016 was a bad year for US growth.

2016 proved to be a really bad year for the US economy.

In the 4th Qtr the economy grew at an anemic 1.9% but that was trying to lift the year which was even worse totally at 1.6%. The economy slowed from 2015 which already was not a great year for the economy.

The economy was the worse since 2011.

New year, New era

Please, lets give our new president chance. The whole Russian conspiracy is still under investigation. He said and did what he had to to win the election. Its mostly about jobs. If he brings jobs back or keeps them from leaving, he will be a success. I know he lies all the time but most politicians do. Thanks to the fortune his dad left him he never had to answer or kiss anybody's ass. Lets see what happens.

A friend of mine sends me jokes 5 days a week. He, obviously, has found a website for these. I try to read through them every day. Sometimes I fall a little bit behind. I will NOT post these here a lot. This may be the only time. Things do get a little heavy on this site, and, having read through this post from some time ago, I found it to be funny and tasteful. ENJOY!!

Not only Muslims hate Jews!

Tagged:  

It has been postulated here that those who hate Jews, even in America, are mostly Muslims. I have been trying to awaken some who post and/or read here that many of those who hate Jews claim to be Christian. And many of those are Christian Americans. I am NOT claiming that all, or even most, American Christians hate Jews. Neither am I claiming that the POTUS-elect is anti-Semitic. I am also NOT STATING that the POTUS-elect will build death camps.

Bombshell: Ivanka Trump to be First Lady at the Whitehouse!!!!!!

Ivanka will take the place of her step mother as first lady in the Whitehouse. Trump, who some believe may have a sexual relationship with his daughter, is especially proud of her breast after her recent boob job. He is a dotting father.

John Glenn -- Much More than "just" another American hero!

Tagged:  

Oh, yes. John Glenn was the first American to circle the earth in a space capsule. And, at age 77, he became the oldest person to go into space. But, John Glenn was much more than that.

Four Years of Trump Will Cost Us Over One Billion Dollars

Experts have estimated that it will cost one million dollars per day to provide security for Trump at Trump Towers. We already have a place for him to live, its called the Whitehouse. If he wants security at Trump Towers, let him pay for it himself. After all, he is a billionaire.

WSPD--PLEASE GIVE US A PROFESSIONAL MORNING HOST

I gave up listening to the local morning and afternoon shows on WSPD when it became all Trump bashing--all of the time. WJR/760 out of Detroit became my mainstay morning station.

I happened to turn on WSPD around 7:30 this morning and what do you know--Fred LeFebvre was bashing Donald Trump. Boy--that sure doesn't get old!

I guess Fred figures that since Lucas County voted for Hillary (only one of seven counties in the state that did) he's safe in continuing to revolve his show around criticizing Trump.

Bombshell: Trump saves a thousand jobs in Indiana!

True to his word, Potus elect Donald Trump has saved a thousand jobs from leaving the country.
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/29/business/trump-to-announce-carrier-pla...
Although another thousand at Carrier appears to be leaving and exactly what incentives Trump and Pence had to entice Carrier with remains to be seen, it is a step in the right direction. Good Job Donald.
