Junior minister S.Baker quit shortly after Mr. Davis - as Mrs. May prepares to face MPs and peers this Monday. Read full article

    So all his plans are cock-a-hoop as result of democracy at work. Unfortunate for him, as the electoral and the body politic are not going priorize his personal stake.

    Soros calls the tune and Teresa Hill and canookiestan dance.


    Teresa: Are you prepared to receive your next tutorial in governance?

    Politics: Trump delivers.

    Conservative justices.

    Economics: World trade rebalanced with tariffs.

    National security: Europe and Brits forced to stop freeloading via nato.

    Foreign affairs: Iran's funding of international terrorism brought to a screeching halt as their domestic economy is driven into the ground by American trade sanctions and Saudi oil production.

    Domestic: Obamacare gutted.

    Self implosion: Liberal press gorges its self in tick like fashion on fake news - mueller/russia/comey/rosenstein.

    Reactionaries: Blue wave in doubt as administration approval increases.

    Teresa Hill: America is WINNING! Labor participation and minority unemployment stats are at all time bests!

    Hell, MAGA's approval rating has increased 10% among Hispanics.

    Leading democrats are openly acknowledging their communist domestic agenda and desire to establish open borders.

    Democrats are pushed further to the left on the psycho ICE abolishment.

    Conservatives are now more solidly behind MAGA than ever.

    Independents are alienated from Democratic candidates by the leftist rants of the party's communist core.

    RINOs are being purged in the primaries and by forced retirement.

    The American economy is surging for the first time since 2007.

    Never Trumpers are publically acknowledging the progress achieved by his administration.

    There are still many things left to be accomplished but the left and its surrogates have failed to kill or even wound MAGA with their unprecedented lies and attacks.

    All they have done is to reveal their true politics - which are abhorrent to vast majority of Americans and in doing so they have tipped their cards and alienated far greater numbers than they have endeared.

    In the end MAGA's recent success and that of America would not have been possible without the corruption and incompetence of the left.

    “I overcame chaos in Germany, restored order, enormously raised production in all fields of our national economy...I succeeded in completely resettling in useful production those 7 million unemployed who so touched our hearts...I have not only politically united the German nation but also rearmed it militarily, and I have further tried to liquidate that Treaty sheet by sheet whose 448 Articles contain the vilest rape that nations and human beings have ever been expected to submit to. I have restored to the Reich the provinces grabbed from us in 1919; I have led millions of deeply unhappy Germans, who have been snatched away from us, back into the Fatherland; I have restored the thousand-year-old historical unity of German living space; and I have attempted to accomplish all that without shedding blood and without inflicting the sufferings of war on my people or any other.”

    That leader was very popular too... then.

    First one:

    Claim: “President Trump jump-started America's economy into record growth.”
    Campaign promise: 4% GDP growth per year.
    Actual result: 2.6% growth in 2017.
    Verdict: Trump failed to keep his promise, and if you think 2.6% is record growth I have a crater on the moon to sell you.

    Additionally, Trump has borrowed more money in order to deliver a stimulus to the economy when it was already growing. If you put more money into an economy it will generally grow faster, but that bill will come due soon enough. Party now, pay later.

    I'll give you a discount cause I like you. It's in a great area; lots of helium-3, extensive uranium and thorium deposits, and satellite images have recently detected osmium. As soon as the space elevator is up and running you'll make a killing. Only MN$600,000, and you also get to name it; perhaps after yourself or a loved one?

    The question is why is this piece appearing in Mercopenguin, a British government propaganda organ supposedly devoted to America, South America and the “South Atlantic”?
