It cannot be undone, but people can change their minds. Apparently, this is happening.” SOROS IS AGAINST, MUST BE A GOOD THING!!
While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 20, 2017
Men have revealed the real reason why they cheat on their partners, and it’s not what many women might expect. Many people assume that cheaters look for a bit on the side because they are bored with their stale relationship, but that may not be the case for most cheaters.

Now, as we discover that even more sinister attempts to thwart Trump were at hand, namely in the case of Susan Rice’s unmasking of the Trump transition team to Obama and the democrats, those seeking political justice have been truly incensed. As true Americans attempt to discover the truth behind the Rice incident, they have again been thwarted by the dastardly Obama.
WE ARE ALL LUCKY TO BE AMERICANS NO MATTER HOW WE GOT HERE!!
Perhaps “fake news” would be too strong a label, but the latest liberal claim circulating in the debate over refugee resettlement is “extremely misleading” at the very least. One of the arguments used to justify allowing more and more refugees into the U.S. (regardless of from where) is that they ultimately pay their own way in taxes for the services they receive.
Joe Selling stock in your mining operation?
John Just seems like the Left has far more violent whackos than the Right.
Joe Plenty of whackos to go around. It may be a matter of perspective.
John Joe 9 out of 10 when somebody meets violence it's a Muslim or Liberal behind it.

JM Swampdrain.com. Might want to do a little more checking.
JH I'm guessing you didn't watch the video in the article LOL.
JM Good guess. I don't even bother to look at the fringes. If there's anything to it, it will show up in mainstream media.
JH No it won't.
JM Even better.
JH Joe, I don't have time for the willfullfy ignorant. Just going on with believing whatever they tell you.
JM John, casting aspersions doesn't give this video any more credence. Characterizing someone as "willfully ignorant" because they are just a bit particular about news sources is simply being belligerent.
JB JM MSM?? OH MY!! The closest they get to the truth is reporting unicorn sightings.
JH JM, you admitted that you'd bashed the post without even bothering to look at it, because it hadn't come from an approved source. I don't get the DNC's list of approved news sources. So, rather than go through this again and again in the future, I just thought I'd point out that life's too short to waste time on people who do what you'd just done.
Like many conservative intellectuals, Thomas Sowell was originally a member of the Left in his youth. His Marxist beliefs continued to his graduate education, even as he studied under the late-libertarian Nobel Laureate Milton Friedman. It wasn’t until he took a summer job at the Labor Department that he realized the government wouldn’t be even remotely capable of creating the society he had envisioned.
Agents became aware of a collector of historical artifacts who they say had procured items “under UNESCO's red alert,” referring to the United Nations organization tasked with cultural preservation. This month, with the power of a judicial order, they raided the collector's house, according to Clarín, an Argentine newspaper. Behind a secret passageway hidden behind a bookshelf, they found the biggest trove of original World War II-era artifacts in Argentina's history. NAZI ARTIFACTS!
