Default Pat Buchanan is a treasure


So tRUMP makes the system non legit?

Pat Buchanan on the rigged system


“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged,” Donald Trump told voters in Ohio and Sean Hannity on Fox News. And that hit a nerve.

“Dangerous,” “toxic,” came the recoil from the media.

Trump is threatening to “delegitimize” the election results of 2016.

Well, if that is what Trump is trying to do, he has no small point. For consider what 2016 promised and what it appears about to deliver.

I don't think Trump can be blamed for the obvious.

Trump is no Angel, but 'Crooked Hillary' indeed.

This election finally makes sense. Trump was hired by the Clinton camp to shake up the right, and accidentally won😳

Now they're all desperately trying to figure out how to make him lose without letting the cat out of the bag. These Breitbart guys might help, but maybe they should have hired Martin Shkreli

Hey brian.

I'm laughing my ass off at the turn of events. Even if what you say is true, it's the greatest gag/con ever done. The sad part is how easy it was to cause the 'Rubes' (a carney term for farmers) to follow!

Finally we have some humor in politics.

Q: What's the difference between Hillary and normal people?


A: When she gets an email from a rich Nigerian proposing a deal, it's actually from a rich Nigerian, proposing a deal.

https://praxis.ink/2016/06/donald-tr...-conservatism/

One of the most persistent right-wing claims against Trump has been that he is better described as a nationalist than a conservative. The accusation has no power against him, however, since he has freely admitted to it, knowing as he did that the majority of Republican voters and the nation as a whole have never been particularly interested in constitutional conservatism. The data points on this subject have been out there for years, but since most conservative political operatives have almost no grasp of political science, none of them seems to have been aware of this. The accusation is likewise impuissant due to the fact that politicians, following the example of Ronald Reagan, have always spoken of making their country great.

Considering that it matters not one whit who is President, I don't see what all the hoopla is about.

The United States is on a course that, short of revolution, it will follow to the end, regardless of who holds the meaningless position of President.

Pay attention to the rest of Government. What are they doing while everyone is preoccupied with this dog and pony show?

That's where the issues lie.

If Congress did it's job then the President would be Less relevant.

I wish Pat would have run in 2016.

Does the Federal Congress remember its Raison d'etre?


Earlier in August, U.S. planes threatened to shoot down Syrian planes over Hasakeh, and our Iraq-Syria war commander, Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, issued a warning to Syria and Russia against any further air strikes around the city.

Who authorized Gen. Townsend to threaten to shoot down Syrian or Russian planes — in Syria?

When did Congress authorize an American war in Syria? Is the Constitution now inoperative?

That we are sinking into a civil war where we sometimes seem to be fighting both sides is a tribute to the fecklessness of the Barack Obama-John Kerry foreign policy and the abdication of a Congress that refuses to either name our real enemy or authorize our deepening involvement.

Our Congress appears again to have abdicated its war powers.

Is it sinking in that tRUMP can win, and a narrative needs to be set for when it happens?

Huffington Post: FBI thinks some Electroninc Voting Machines easily hacked


Multiple former officials and security researchers said the cyberattacks on Arizona’s and Illinois’ voter databases could be part of a suspected Russian attempt to meddle in the U.S. election, a campaign that has already included successful intrusions at major Democratic Party organizations and the selective leaking of documents embarrassing to Democrats. Hillary Clinton’s campaign has alleged that the digital attacks on her party are an effort by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime to sway the election to GOP nominee Donald Trump. Moscow has denied any involvement.
