Re: “How One Major Internet Company Helps Serve Up Hate on the Web

The most Nazi-like people in America elected Obama and tried to elect Hillary. Many of them work for Universities. I too dislike the hate groups. I suggest the liberals turn against hate groups like MS13. As it is now you are paying for food and rent for MS13 baby moms with all free welfare stuff.

Re: “White House Threatens to Take Congress to the Mat on Border Wall

Paul Ryan is a very gay RINO who has a very personal agenda similar to the never Trumpets. Expect Ryan will continue to place his personal agenda ahead of the party. He will resist trump at every turn until his ass is sent packing (pun intended).

Trump is a nut, but he's a nut with ISO standard threads. His agenda is not hidden. It was in your face and he got elected. (OMG what were they thinking to run Hillary LOL)

I was hoping to see Trump kill a few more of this World's criminal dictators by now -- disappointed so far.

Re: “Former Intelligence Official: Trump Conflict With Spy Agencies Creates ‘Dangerous Moment’

Yes, It is very dangerous when the spy agencies realize the new guy will take control of them. Several agencies simply need to be forever shuttered and the rest put in the corner where they can be watched. Where is Frank Church when we need him.

Re: “Video: Trump's First Solo Press Conference Was a Sight to Behold

I watched Trumps speech over and over with a local group at a meeting center. We thought it was quite well done; like he said he didn't rant and rave. He and the reporters were joking with each other. Numerous times the news reports have been proven to be false. Reporters themselves have even stated on air that they don't care so much about truth just so they are first to get on the air with a story. If people can't see that our country has been in trouble for years and years they must be deaf and blind. Government has spent excessive amounts of money; given unbelievable sums of cash plus weapons to Iran; crippled the military; drained SS; saddled us with piss poor health coverage; hundreds of people killed in Chicago alone; California is bankrupt & still following Gov Brown down the tubes;parents letting their kids skip school to protest - forget their education;fraudulent voting; the list goes on and on. God Bless America!

Re: “Trump Keeps Getting Asked About Anti-Semitism, But He Doesn't Seem to Have an Answer

This piece typifies so much of the reporting about Trump. He isn't anti-Semitic, has family members and staff that are Jewish, etc. But, because he doesn't play the media's game of repeatedly answering their "gotcha" questions, he is encouraging anti-Semitism? Just like when he denounced David Duke repeatedly, but didn't hear a question properly on CNN and said he didn't know Duke, the left claims he supports the KKK. The majority of media reporting about Trump is INCREDIBLY dishonest and despicable.

Re: “Video: Trump's First Solo Press Conference Was a Sight to Behold

Trump is nothing but an egotistical ignoramus. He bitches and complains about fake news but the news reports what comes out of his mouth!! Go figure!! Oh and referring to the New York Times as the FAILING NEW YORK TIMES just because they see through him is utterly ridiculous.

Re: “A New State Department Order to Revoke Visas Could Have Far-Reaching Effects

This signals the beginning. Next they will go after our own citizens. The educated, the dissenters, the press. Very dangerous days ahead as we become like countries we have only read about. Think it can't happen? Read history. That's what they always think.

Re: “'Mr. Trump, I Would Be Dead Today If This Country Had Not Let Me In'

I'm happy that Mr. Mancheno found refuge in this great country. But for a man who claims to be an immigration attorney, threatening to "defend the Constitution" from Trump is a little over the top! We can agree - or disagree and argue all day - about the merits of restricting immigration based on "source country," but the executive order was NOT unconstitutional. Every president has probably enacted similar restrictions - including Dear Leader Obama. (The MSM is pretty silent on the similar restriction he imposed on Cuban immigrants, shortly before he left office.)

It's nice that many immigrants have found, and will continue to find, a new home in the USA. But deciding who gets in and who doesn't should ALWAYS have the best interests of the already-here people as the #1 priority. We shouldn't swing the doors open to any and all. (Duh!) Personally, I'd like to see an influx of Christians - they are among the most persecuted of all, in Christian-unfriendly countries.

My 2 cents.

Re: “Trump's Travel Ban is Wreaking Havoc on Families, Especially Those With Valid Visas

I believe that the term you were looking for is "wreaking", not wrecking.

Re: “Photos: Compare the Crowds at D.C. Women's March and Trump's Inauguration

Trump has been spoiled since he was born. He does not except rejection well at all. He has to be the winner no matter what, and he has his tantrums if is the slightest lean toward the other way, in someone else's favor. He has to win or he will take all his marbles and go home. He has been rich for so long that he really is out of touch with the real world as the rest of us know it. He does not know how to express himself. He is used to being told that he is a winner, but has never been told that he will lose too sometimes and he will have to roll with punches too, He is not graceful about anything.

Re: “Photos: Compare the Crowds at D.C. Women's March and Trump's Inauguration

The images are Date Stamped but not time stamped. Seriously?
Why cannot people by more transparent with their partisanship?

"The Trump administration incorrectly told reporters on Saturday that 1.5 million attended the inauguration" - since there is no count, how is it incorrect?

Re: “One Person, One Vote? Electoral College Will Choose Next U.S. President Monday

It's unfortunate they stopped teaching schoolchildren Civics. The Electoral College is 130 years old. When a person loses a game of chess. As in Checkmate! The loser shouldn't whine that they had more pieces left of the board.
In every presidential election there is a winner and a loser. The Party of the candidate who lost should accept it, and learn some lessons before the next time in four years.

Re: “Trump is Centerpiece of Feisty GOP Debate

The questioning NEVER dealt with any substance. Forget about the social issues, how about one single question about the future direction of the economy? Not a single political candidate who is of that professional class would deliver any possible change. Obama has proven that Democrat or Republican, it really does not matter. Obama has been Bush Part II. Nothing ever changes.

I did listen to Trump being interviewed on the telephone on Bloomberg News. I must say, he expressed opinions on who was the better Fed Chairman that others would be hard to remember any names from the past. When the economy turns down, we may see support for Trump rise rather than fall.

Re: “Trump is Centerpiece of Feisty GOP Debate

The bias of FOX News is really starting to show how they are attempting to influence the elections by destroying Donald Trump claiming he is against women. I think the attack is really exaggerated for he may say some wild things but is he really against women? I would say the evidence does not support that. Nonetheless, FOX News is showing this is going to be a really nasty campaign when they are taking on the lead in the political debates to try to deliberately stack the cards against Trump so we end up with Bush. This illustrates that they are not listening to the people or why the vast majority are in favor of Trump. A friend who is a die-hard Democrat said to me after the debate, “You know, I may just vote for Trump. Nobody owns this guy!” To say I was stunned is saying it mildly. This 2016 election is going to be really interesting for it appears this may develop as a war against the establishment and just another wasted 8 years by electing any professional politician since nothing will change.
