    The Left’s vision of “tolerance” is very one sided.

    President Trump on the Session/Russia brouhaha: “This whole narrative is a way of saving face for Democrats losing an election that everyone thought they were supposed to win. The Democrats are overplaying their hand. They lost the election, and now they have lost their grip on reality. The real story is all of the illegal leaks of classified and other information. It is a total ‘witch hunt!’”

    “Sessions talked to Russians!” Outrage.
    “Clinton sold our uranium to Russia!” Crickets.
    But there’s no media bias! Just ask them!

    Obama’s AG, Eric Holder, misled or lied outright to Congress about the targeting of reporters, the ‘New Black Panther’ party, the administration’s enforcement of federal marijuana laws, and the ‘Fast and Furious’ gun-running scandal.

    Schumer called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign and demanded a special prosecutor to investigate. But when Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch confirmed that she had met with former President Bill Clinton, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) dismissed calls for an independent prosecutor to take over the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

    President Trump is calling for a roughly 25% reduction in the EPA’s budget (about $2 billion). Instructions include eliminating dozens of programs, including at least 16 that have to do with global warming and implementing former President Barack Obama’s climate agenda, a 30% cut in grants to states, and a 20 reduction in EPA’s workforce through buy-outs and layoffs.

    They’re not just ignoring Hillary’s uranium deal. They’re also ignoring Democrat lobbyists who were Oh So Cozy with influential Russians. Wouldn’t it be SWEET if their obsession with Trump/Russia ended with THEM going to jail?

    Secretary Ryan Zinke, just hours into his first day on the job, took swift action in scrapping the ban on lead by hunters and anglers in outdoor recreation that was passed on the final full day by the Obama administration. Question: If banning lead was SO important, why did Obama wait until his LAST day? It strikes me as more of an “Obama thumb in right wingers eye” than any environmental protection thing.

    It is really insulting of leftists to portray this woman as too DUMB to make an informed choice about being there in the first place. But that’s so typical of the left, for whom it is an article of faith that conservative women are morons and none more so than those who support the military. As a Cornell-educated (so, yeah, NOT dumb!) and PROUD military mom, this all just solidifies my commitment to the right wing.
