Trump Month 2: “You’re Fired!” Begins

President Trump month 1 was about territory capture. On Trump month 2, in the captured territories, comes the orgy of the Guillotine!

It’s now time to say “you’re fired!”

President Trump has lived his life in the front pages so President Trump understands that Big Media is the enemy of the people. That’s a lesson many of his staff people did not understand fully until the past weeks. We suspect that the delusions are off now for these staffers. Staffers that don’t understand that, or those that want to bad mouth President Trump to Big Media for their own personal advancement, have to be removed.

President Trump as a business man also understands that in business mergers or company takeovers, some staff want to continue infighting instead of accepting the new business structure. President Trump understands that when employees in a business seek to undermine the business they have to be removed. President Trump’s cabinet appointments understand this as well because so many of them come from the world of business.

President Trump also understands that Barack Obama Dimocrats infest the federal bureaucracy and seek to undermine the new administration. These infestations need to be fumigated. As many culprits as possible need to have their heads separated from their shoulders. It’s time to bring out the Guillotine.

How desperately in need of “you’re fired” is the federal government? Look at the Internal Revenue Service:

It’s Nearly Impossible To Get Fired At The IRS For Tax Evasion

More than 99 percent of the thousands of IRS employees investigated for violating federal tax laws in the last five years avoided termination and continued enforcing other Americans’ tax collections, according to an analysis by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.

The IRS fired only 74 of 9,176 workers investigated for tax noncompliance from October 2011 to September 2016. Another 280 were allowed to retire or resign as a result of those misconduct investigations, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) Inspector General (IG).

Noncompliance cases — which may involve underreporting income, underpaying taxes or failing to file returns — most commonly resulted in some form of verbal or written reprimand or counseling, according to the 10 semi-annual IG reports analyzed. The IRS employed about 85,000 people at 500 offices across the country in 2016.

That IRS corruption is no surprise because Barack Obama appointed a tax cheat, Tim Geithner, to run the Treasury Department which numbers the IRS as one of its fiefdoms. The lack of prosecution of the corrupt IRS director John Koskinen is another clue. It’s time to fire Koskinen.

The firings required to remove the Obama left-overs will be many. Fortunately President Trump is on the job. There is lots of “you’re fired!” good news.

The Guillotine is wheeled out and ready to slice. The Guillotine has already been tested and tasted blood:

The White House abruptly dismissed a senior National Security Council aide on Friday after receiving reports that he had publicly laced into the president and his senior aides, including son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump, at an event hosted by a Washington think tank.

The aide, Craig Deare, was serving as the NSC’s senior director for Western Hemisphere Affairs. Earlier in the week, at a private, off-the-record roundtable hosted by the Woodrow Wilson Center for a group of about two dozen scholars, Deare harshly criticized the president and his chief strategist Steve Bannon and railed against the dysfunction paralyzing the Trump White House, according to a source familiar with the situation.

This scumbag, of course working for the NSC which is at war with President Trump leaked a “detailed and embarrassing readout of Trump’s call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.” He had to go. President Trump removed this security threat.

There’s lots of good news on the Guillotine front. We’ll leave the best for last. But there is a lot of good news on the Guillotine front:

The White House budget office has drafted a hit list of programs that President Trump could eliminate to trim domestic spending, including longstanding conservative targets like the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Legal Services Corporation, AmeriCorps and the National Endowments for the Arts and the Humanities.

Work on the first Trump administration budget has been delayed as the budget office awaited Senate confirmation of former Representative Mick Mulvaney, a spending hard-liner, as budget director. Now that he is in place, his office is ready to move ahead with a list of nine programs to eliminate, an opening salvo in the Trump administration’s effort to reorder the government and increase spending on defense and infrastructure. [snip]

The Office of Management and Budget is currently operating with a skeleton staff; Mr. Mulvaney was only confirmed on Thursday. Still, officials there plan to ask agencies targeted for elimination for their responses by next Friday and to finalize the list by March 13, according to a person familiar with the process.

Obama Dimocrats will demand money for wasteful programs that are no longer needed other than to continue to pay salaries to their cronies. But it is time to Guillotine waste, fraud, abuse, and the federal workforce that preys on the taxpayer. It’s long past time for Big Bird to leave the government cage and work in the marketplace. If Big Bird cannot feed itself fat with the hundreds of millions (billions?) made at Sesame Street, then let’s roast that fowl and have a big bird Thanksgiving.

The Guillotine does not have to wait until Thanksgiving in November to feast. The Guillotine has begun to drink at the State Department:

While Rex Tillerson is on his first overseas trip as Secretary of State, his aides laid off staff at the State Department on Thursday.

Much of seventh-floor staff, who work for the Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources and the Counselor offices, were told today that their services were no longer needed. [snip]

Two sources also told CBS News that Ambassador Kristie Kenney, the Counselor of the State Department and one of the last remaining senior officials, was informed that she will be let go. She is a career foreign service officer who had served as an ambassador under Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton. Her staff was told that Secretary Tillerson does not intend to fill the counselor’s position anytime soon.[snip]

“It is irresponsible to let qualified, nonpartisan, experienced people go before you have any idea of their replacement. You can’t do foreign policy by sitting in the White House, just out of your back pocket,” explains Tom Countryman, Former Assistant Secetary for Non-Proliferation who was let go earlier this month. [snip]

This may be what President Trump was referring to when he repeatedly said that “our people” are not yet in place at U.S. government agencies. He blamed the leaks of embarrassing White House transcripts of his phone calls with foreign leaders – including difficult conversations he had with Mexico and Australia – on officials who had previously worked for the Obama Administration.

Drain that freakin’ swamp! There is no more of a swamp than at foggy bottom, a.k.a. the State Department.

Drain that freakin’ swamp on the seventh floor of the State Department, T-Rex. Drain that freakin’ swamp:

The State Department’s ‘shadow government’

News that a top State Department official discussed a “quid pro quo” in exchange for the FBI changing the classification of a Hillary Clinton email is shocking enough. But word that the coterie of State officials who controlled the release of the emails called itself “The Shadow Government” is mind-blowing.

The latest FBI dump of documents from the investigation into Clinton’s email follies includes a summary of one agent’s talks with Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy — who, the agent said, “pressured” him to “change the classified email to unclassified.”

Kennedy “asked his assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a ‘quid pro quo,’ ” the summary says. “In exchange for marking the email unclassified, State would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they were presently forbidden.” [snip]

The FBI also released the summary of an interview that revealed a cabal at State that oversaw the email release — a “powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or as ‘The Shadow Government.’

The 7th Floor Group, the Shadow Government swamp is being drained. The Guillotine is lapping up blood and remains thirsty. Candidate Donald J. Trump’s “drain the swamp” promise is underway and will be fulfilled.

Why was T-Rex Tillerson so necessary for the job of Secretary of State? Secretary Tillerson ran the massive Exxon-Mobil corporation so he knows how to run a massive operation like the State Department. You need a T-Rex to drain the swamp. That is what Secretary Tillerson is doing and why he is under attack from within the State Department:

One of Rex Tillerson’s first directives as U.S. secretary of state was an order to senior staff that his briefing materials not exceed two pages.

It was a reflection of Tillerson’s management style honed at the helm of Exxon Mobil, an oil company known for its relentless focus on efficiency, and one reason his closest aides at the State Department refer to him as “the CEO” rather than “the Secretary.” [snip]

His aide R.C. Hammond said the directive reflected Tillerson’s focus on key facts rather than lack of interest in finer points of foreign policy.

He is asking people to be efficient with their information,” Hammond said, adding that if Tillerson needed more information he would ask for it. “He is a decision-maker and he needs the facts in front of him.” [snip]

Senior State Department officials who have attended meetings with Tillerson say they find him sociable and a man of substance, whose direct manner and probing questions reflect his training as an engineer seeking to solve problems rather than play politics. [snip]

Just two State Department positions of 116 key posts requiring executive branch nomination have been filled, according to the nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service – Tillerson’s and that of U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. [snip]

“People want to back him,” one veteran senior official said about the former Exxon Mobil boss. “But people are feeling that this building is being stripped,” said the official, referring to a sense that with so many top positions vacant, the State Department is not fully equipped to help make policy in the new administration.

There is also unease over possible deep staff cuts and the future of some departments. Two people said employees in the Bureau of Management and Resources were told to apply for other positions within the State Department. Hammond, Tillerson’s aide said no decision had been taken to close that division.

The swamp is being drained, not merely stripped. It must be understood that the swamp monsters will fight back to protect their swamp. Thus far the “intelligence” bureaucrats and the NSC swamp monsters have leaked and leaked to destroy President Trump. Many across the political spectrum have spoken out against the “coup” led by these swamp monsters. Even some die hard leftists, such as former Congressman Dennis Kucinich, see the danger of the swamp monsters, the 7th Floor, the Shadow Government:

WE CAN’T LET INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES UNDERMINE AMERICAN DEMOCRACY [snip]

Now, some unnamed, rogue, intelligence officials, allegedly fearing leaks, are reportedly withholding secret information from the new president, while their own unsubstantiated leaks promote a narrative that Russia hacked the U.S. election, colluding with Trump aides. [snip]

Intelligence agencies play politics. Given the separation of powers doctrine, they have no legal right to monitor Congressional phone calls, and are to discontinue the monitoring if it accidentally occurs.

Our nation is endangered by never-ending attempts to engineer coups abroad. We also face dangers from within by unquestioned acceptance of stories peddled by some past or present anonymous, “official” US sources. [snip]

I well understand the disappointment of Democrats over the election. But we must not let our disappointment cause us to align with those who would imperil our country by either stirring passions for war or using covert, unconstitutional means to oust a President.

The consequences of the behind-the-scenes machinations of anonymous intelligence officials goes way beyond the personality and policies of one president. This is about our nation. It is about our Constitution and the rule of law.

We are witnessing an attempt by some shadowy intelligence operatives to further divide us, to destabilize America for ideology, money and power. People need to look carefully at every headline and media report to discern the underlying motives, so in our efforts to challenge this administration, we do not fall prey to those who can, with insidious anonymity, destroy our democracy and our freedoms. We must look beyond partisanship.

As we wrote previously, “Such is the state of the Obama Dimocrat Party that even those that once were certifiable kooks now appear rational by comparison.” Kucinich is not alone on the left in warning about the Shadow Government, the 7th Floor, the NSC, the intelligence community coup:

I’m a Democrat (and ex-CIA) but the spies plotting against Trump are out of control [snip]

Said an intelligence officer: “I know what’s best for foreign policy and national security… And I’m going to act on that.

Some of us might applaud this man, including a few of my fellow Democrats. In their minds, this is a case of Mr. Smith Goes to Langley to do battle against a corrupt President Trump.

One small problem. The intelligence officer quoted above was actually Aldrich Ames, a CIA traitor whose crime of treason in the 1980s and 1990s resulted in the compromise of more than 100 assets. Many were tortured and executed as a result.

Ames’ flawed logic is eerily similar to that of his present-day colleagues who are engaged in a shadow war with their commander in chief. They, too, have decided that their superior judgment is more important than following the law. [snip]

For reasons of misguided righteousness or partisan hatred, they’ve taken it upon themselves to be judge, jury, and executioner. They have prosecuted their case in the court of public opinion, with likeminded media outlets such as CNN, The New York Times, and the Washington Post serving as court stenographers.

Elected by no one, responsible only to each other, these spies have determined that Trump is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors.

Days ago, they delivered their verdict. According to one intelligence official, the president “will die in jail.”

I understand how this might feel appealing to deeply partisan Democrats. After all, I didn’t want Trump to win either. [snip] We must instead let the system continue to work, as it has, and make our case to the American people during future elections.

If you’re not convinced, imagine the consequences of letting spies decide not just Trump’s fate but other political winners and losers too. Imagine how they might treat our candidates next. [snip]

This is the slippery slope of political tribalism that, up until a few months ago, I would have thought impossible in America. Certainly it happens in third world nations but not here. I was trained to believe that we were exceptional.

In the culture of America’s spies, you live and die by a set of rules. One of them is a sacred pledge of allegiance to the constitution and commander in chief. Spies may not like a president or their policies but they must salute their leader nonetheless. If they cannot, they are told to resign.

Spies also take a vow of secrecy, specifically to keep classified information hidden from anyone who doesn’t have an authorized need to know. It’s a commitment one keeps for a lifetime. And should that vow be violated, the consequences are dire. Prison time. Colleagues and informants killed. Enemies emboldened. The country less safe.

Spies also accept and embrace a final rule: there must be an unbreakable wall between government workers and the democratic process.

Why?

Because many spies have access to powerful tools that, if used improperly, could cause incredible damage to the nation’s stability. Accordingly, clandestine officers have a special covenant with the American people – codified by the Hatch Act – that limits their participation in politics.

During my time as a CIA officer, I quickly learned why all these rules were in place. I read people’s emails. I listened to phone calls. I recruited assets that told the dirtiest and most embarrassing of secrets. I came to realize that my power was both an awesome responsibility and, at times, wickedly seductive.

Some of us faltered in our commitments. I remember colleagues who believed themselves above the rules, conducting quiet investigations into cheating wives or ex-boyfriends. They were eventually discovered and rightfully thrown out. They had demonstrated an inability to handle the burden of power.

And that is precisely what we are experiencing today. The spies who are plotting against President Trump are breaking U.S. laws. They’re violating their oaths. And they’re committing treason to remedy (perceived) treason.

They likely don’t see it that way, of course. But, then again, neither did Aldrich Ames.

With luck and aggressive investigations, these renegade spies will join their fallen colleague at the Allenwood Correctional Facility for the remainder of their lives.

Drain the swamp. Fill the prisons if necessary with those who violate their oaths and plot against the duly elected government and president of the United States.

It’s not just the State Department that requires a drain of the swamp. There are the corruptions and plots at the EPA that need to feel the slice of the Guillotine:

In a show of defiance, EPA workers fight to stop Pruitt’s confirmation

WASHINGTON — Employees of the Environmental Protection Agency have been calling their senators to urge them to vote on Friday against the confirmation of Scott Pruitt, President Donald Trump’s contentious nominee to run the agency, a remarkable display of activism and defiance that presages turbulent times ahead for the EPA.

Many of the scientists, environmental lawyers and policy experts who work in EPA offices around the country say the calls are a last resort for workers who fear a nominee selected to run an agency he has made a career out of fighting — by a president who has vowed to “get rid of” it.

“Mr. Pruitt’s background speaks for itself, and it comes on top of what the president wants to do to EPA,” said John O’Grady, a biochemist at the agency since the first Bush administration and president of the union representing the EPA’s 15,000 employees nationwide.

Nicole Cantello, an EPA lawyer who heads the union in the Chicago area, said: “It seems like Trump and Pruitt want a complete reversal of what EPA has done. I don’t know if there’s any other agency that’s been so reviled. So it’s in our interests to do this.”

The union has sent emails and posted Facebook and Twitter messages urging members to make the calls.

“It is rare,” said James A. Thurber, the director of the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies at American University. “I can’t think of any other time when people in the bureaucracy have done this.” [snip]

But because Civil Service rules make it difficult to fire federal workers, the show of defiance indicates that Pruitt will face strong internal opposition to many of his promised efforts to curtail EPA activities and influence.

“What it means is that it’s going to be a bloodbath when Pruitt gets in there,” said Christine Todd Whitman, a former Republican governor of New Jersey and the EPA administrator during the first term of President George W. Bush.

Whitman predicted a standoff between career employees and their politically appointed bosses, noting that Pruitt will be blocked by legal Civil Service protections from immediately firing longtime employees but would likely be able to retaliate against them in other ways, such as shifting them to different jobs. The showdown could embolden the White House and Congress to change federal Civil Service laws.

The Civil Service is supposed to be a class of experts implementing policy, regardless of politics,” said Myron Ebell, a fellow at the free-market Competitive Enterprise Institute, who led Trump’s environmental transition team. “If they have now become a special interest group pleading their own agenda, then it is probably time to look at reforming the Civil Service laws.” [snip]

Within days of Pruitt’s swearing-in, Trump is expected to sign one or more executive orders aimed at undoing Obama’s climate change regulations, and possibly to begin dismantling some EPA offices and programs, according to people familiar with the White House’s plans.

While it will be impossible to undo most major rules or programs that quickly, the presidential signatures would authorize Pruitt to cut existing environmental regulations — and, eventually, the jobs of many of the people who enforce them. [snip]

I’ve been here for 30 years, and I’ve never called my senator about a nominee before,” said an EPA employee in North Carolina who spoke on the condition of anonymity out of fear losing her job.

The calls to senators come on top of an anti-Pruitt protest last week by Chicago EPA employees, and agency workers say that if Pruitt is confirmed, they intend to amplify their resistance to him, taking their case to the American public.

“At this point, it’s just, ‘call your senator,’” O’Grady, the union president, said. “We plan on more demonstrations, more rallies. I think you will see the employees’ union reaching out to NGOs and having alliances with them,” he added, referring to nongovernmental organizations. “We’re looking at working with PR firms.” [snip]

But former EPA officials said the open rebellion by current employees is extraordinary, especially considering that their resistance could backfire once Pruitt arrives on the job.

Scott Pruitt won confirmation on Friday. The EPA swamp will be drained and the ecology of government restored. Get ready for “reforming the Civil Service laws”. Remember, we save the best for last.

There are a lot of plotters and those who attempt to undermine the President of the United States. Some deserve prison. Others deserve much worse. This current congress deserves some condemnation too:


Yeah, this freakin’ congress is largely a waste, a swamp filled with waste.

Drudge Put It Perfectly: Congressional Republicans Flail and Fail
Incompetence hinders party from accomplishing Trump’s agenda

President Donald J. Trump is working night and day, seven days a week, but the congress is a freakin’ waste. But not entirely a waste. The goofball congress, run by the GOP establishment and Trump haters, have done a few things.

The wastrel congress run by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have done very little during the first Trump month. The Senate as usual has lounged in the swamp as if it were a high class hot tub at a Trump resort – failing to quickly fill President Trump’s cabinet. The House, under Paul Ryan, promises to get things done – after a week’s “recess” having done little thus far. Paul Ryan says that after the recess the House will begin to repeal ObamaCare and continue to prepare budgets and tax reform.

We’ll give Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the Congress through the Trump month 2 – before we start to scream and shout. We want to preserve our dulcimer tones and sweet demeanor/disposition.

There is some hope we will remain sweet and purring. We saved the best for last.

During Trump month 1, a great many preparatory steps have been taken. A great many seeds planted. The next steps, the flowering seeds, might blossom unto heaven and feed the Guillotine in Trump month 2. Here’s a corpuscle taste, written by leftist NYMAG, to whet the appetite of the Guillotine:

The GOP Just Gave Congress the Power to Cut the Salaries of Individual Civil Servants to $1

This week, congressional Republicans gave themselves the power to slash the annual salary of any individual federal worker to as low as $1 — and the budget of any individual federal program right down to zero.

They executed this attack on the independence of the civil service by reviving an obscure provision enacted by Congress in 1876: The Holman Rule, named after the Indiana congressman who devised it, empowers any member of Congress to submit an amendment to an appropriations bill that targets the funding of a specific government program or employee. [snip]

For the past three decades, Congress has had the power to slash any agency’s overall budget, but not to target specific projects or civil servants for funding cuts or downsizing.

Until now.

This is a big rule change inside there that allows people to get at places they hadn’t before,” House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters this week. “All agencies should be held accountable and tested in a manner and this is an avenue to allow them to do it.” [snip]

Virginia congressman H. Morgan Griffith led the charge for reviving the Holman Rule, after learning about how much the federal government spends on the upkeep of wild horses ($80 million, apparently). When the Washington Post asked Griffith if the new rule would be used to cut “huge swaths” of the federal workforce, he replied, “I can’t tell you it won’t happen … The power is there. But isn’t that appropriate? Who runs this country, the people of the United States or the people on the people’s payroll?

For the next year, passing an amendment slashing an individual worker’s salary or position will require a simple majority in both houses of Congress.

Now that is Civil Service Reform. Sadly, the only way some workers, especially protected government workers, will be productive and follow the orders of those duly elected to run the government is under the threat of “You’re fired.” The unfortunate fact, as demonstrated by the IRS tax cheats, is that the federal bureaucracy needs to be cut back drastically. Also, the tail needs to understand it does not get to shake the big dog.

On Saint Valentine’s Day, Governor Chris Christie met with President Trump. No one other than the President and the Governor know what happened at that meeting. The best guess is Governor Christie will soon be employed by the President. As NYMAG reported, Governor Christie at a private function said that he advised President Trump early on “to immediately ask the Republican Congress to change the civil service laws. Because if they do, it will make it a lot easier to fire” Obama appointees.

Governor Christie might be the incoming “drain the swamp” machine. We’ll know soon enough. For now, the Guillotine is the apprentice on the job – beheading the swamp monsters – under orders from President Trump.

Beware swamp monsters and corrupt bureaucrats! President Donald J. Trump says “You’re fired!”

  1. Leftist women in America are an embarrassment to the once worthy women rights movement. Here’s a young woman to admire today (albeit she has an unfortunate first name:

    http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/02/21/iran-tells-u-s-chess-champion-to-wear-a-hijab-heres-how-she-responds/

    Iran tells U.S. chess champion to wear a hijab – here’s how she responds

    Nazi Paikidze is the reigning U.S. chess champion, but when the Iranian government told her she had to wear a hijab, the Muslim head veil, and restrict contact with men in order to compete in the world competition hosted by Iran this year, she refused. The “morality laws” were supported by FIDE, the international organization that coordinates the world chess championship event.

    By participating, I would be forced to submit to forms of oppression designed specifically for women,” Paikidze told Marie Clare magazine. “It sets the wrong example, particularly for young girls interested in chess.”

    Paikidze further explained her decision in a post on Instagram in September.

    This is a post for those who don’t understand why I am boycotting FIDE’s decision. I think it’s unacceptable to host a WOMEN’S World Championship in a place where women do not have basic fundamental rights and are treated as second-class citizens. For those saying that I don’t know anything about Iran: I have received the most support and gratitude from the people of Iran, who are facing this situation every day.

    Paikidze also retweeted this tweet noting the irony of members of the Swedish team, a country known for its feminist advances, giving in to the gender-specific oppression imposed by Iran by wearing the hijab.

    I will NOT wear a hijab and support women’s oppression.” She told the founder of a group organizing against Iran’s hijab laws. “Even if it means missing one of the most important competitions of my career.

    When an Iranian chess player criticized her boycott saying that the tournament were important for women in Iran and presented them with an opportunity for show their strength, Paikidze appeared to respond on her Instagram account to the charge.

    A message to the people of Iran: I am not anti-Islam or any other religion. I stand for freedom of religion and choice. I’m protesting FIDE’s decision not because of Iran’s religion or people, but for the government’s laws that are restricting my rights as a woman.

    The world chess championship began February 10th and will continue until March 5th. For boycotting the event, Paikidze forfeits the opportunity to win over $100,000 in award money.

  2. Dang lost my post.
    She IS a feminist, unlike those Sweden fruitcakes and the so called American feminists that apparently don’t care about women being stoned to death, gays being thrown off buildings and 9 year old girls being sold into marriage.
    Asshats

    They are my enemy and I plan to fight.

  3. If anyone on this website is surprised by this news, you’re fired:

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/02/21/exclusive-lawmakers-to-request-probe-of-418m-arms-sale-to-kenya-on-obamas-last-day/

    EXCLUSIVE: Lawmakers to Request Probe of $418M Arms Sale to Kenya on Obama’s Last Day

    A group of lawmakers is planning to request a congressional investigation of a $418 million U.S. weapons sale to Kenya approved by the Obama administration on its last day in office.
    The sale, approved by the State Department and privately notified to Congress on January 19, would allow Kenya to buy 14 weaponized crop-duster-like planes — including two trainer planes and services, for missions against terrorist group al-Shabaab.

    The deal was publicly announced the Monday after Trump’s inauguration.

    A handful of lawmakers, led by Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC), are questioning why the contract to produce the planes was awarded to major defense firm L3 Technologies — which has never produced such a plane — while a smaller, disabled veteran-owned company in North Carolina that already make those planes at a lower cost was not considered.

    The Mooresville, N.C. company, IOMAX USA Inc., costed out 14 planes at $237 million dollars, according to a Budd aide.

    “It looks like politics,” Budd said in a phone interview with Breitbart News on Monday. “Why are they sending it to someone that’s produced zero, for twice the price? This is inappropriate.”

  6. Well, it must be over for Trump:

    http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/320487-poll-americans-overwhelmingly-oppose-sanctuary-cities

    Poll: Americans overwhelmingly oppose sanctuary cities

    An overwhelming majority of Americans believe that cities that arrest illegal immigrants for crimes should be required to turn them over to federal authorities.

    The poll shows that President Trump has broad public support in his effort to crack down on sanctuary cities.

    A survey from Harvard–Harris Poll provided exclusively to The Hill found that 80 percent of voters say local authorities should have to comply with the law by reporting to federal agents the illegal immigrants they come into contact with.

    As it stands, hundreds of cities across the nation — many with Democratic mayors or city councils — are refusing to do so.
    Trump has signed an executive order directing Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly to find ways to starve these sanctuary cities of federal funding. A Reuters analysis found the top 10 sanctuary cities in the U.S. receive $2.27 billion in federal funding for programs ranging from public health services to early childhood education.

    Kelly is expected to hire thousands of new immigration enforcement agents with broad authority to detain and deport those in the country illegally, potentially setting up a showdown between the federal government and sanctuary cities.[snip]

    A majority — 52 percent — say they support Trump’s two executive orders allowing for the construction of a southern border wall, increasing the number of immigration officers by 10,000 and finding a way to revoke federal funds for sanctuary cities.

    The crackdown on sanctuary cities is the most popular feature of those actions, followed closely by the directive to increase the border patrol, which is backed by 75 percent of voters. [snip]

    Meanwhile, 53 percent of voters surveyed said they back Trump’s travel ban, which was rejected by the courts. That order temporarily suspended the United States’ refugee program for 120 days, indefinitely suspended resettlement for Syrian refugees and imposed a 90-day travel and immigration ban from seven predominately Muslim nations: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia. [snip]

    Fifty-six percent say they support the specific aspect of Trump’s order that pauses immigration from the seven countries on the terrorism watch list until a new vetting system is in place.

    Support for that policy goes up to 60 percent when the seven nations are described as “Muslim majority countries.”

    Voters are worried that the federal judge’s suspension of Trump’s order — a ruling that was upheld this month at an appeals court in San Francisco — could put the nation at risk. [snip]

    When voters are told that the U.S. is slated to receive 100,000 Syrian refugees, 51 percent said that number should be lower, 34 percent said it is an appropriate number, and 15 percent said the U.S. should allow more.

    “Americans support both comprehensive immigration reform and stronger vetting and reduced refugees — they want a mix of compassion, strong borders,” said Penn. “They see ISIS as the greatest threat to the country and that is spurring concerns about refugee migration.”

    The online survey of 2,148 registered voters was conducted between Feb. 11 and 13. The partisan breakdown is 39 percent Democrat, 30 percent Republican, 27 percent independent and 5 percent other. The Harvard–Harris Poll survey is a collaboration of the Harvard Center for American Political Studies and The Harris Poll.

    Only 80% support President Trump’s policies on this issue, so it must be over for Trump (according to Big Media). The sample on this poll is overly generous to Dims and still Trump trumps.

    Travel Ban Aside, Trump Has Vast Legal Arsenal for Deporting Millions

    Whether President Donald Trump’s ban against travelers from seven Muslim majority countries is saved by revision or scrapped by the courts, he’ll still have a vast legal arsenal at his disposal for limiting immigration into the U.S. and deporting millions of undocumented people.

    The law vests the president with broad authority over immigration, said Austin Fragomen, whose Manhattan-based Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy is the biggest U.S. law firm focused on immigration. Trump hasn’t wasted time tapping his power.

    The administration said Tuesday it will try to deport almost all undocumented immigrants caught in the U.S., hire thousands more border patrol and immigration agents and begin building a wall along the Mexican border, enacting an immigration crackdown the president sought in a Jan. 25 executive order.

    Trump’s Jan. 25 directive, entitled “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States,” signed two days before his travel-ban directive, could result in hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of immigrants being rounded up for deportation, according to Kelly Lytle Hernandez, an immigration historian at the University of California, Los Angeles. The order directs federal agencies to vigorously enforce existing immigration laws and vows to withhold federal funds from jurisdictions that don’t comply. [snip]

    The Department of Homeland Security oversees almost two dozen agencies that determine who enters and leaves the U.S., including Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection and Citizenship and Immigration Services. The agency has an annual budget of $41 billion and more than 229,000 employees. Trump has broad discretion to use the money and employees as he sees fit without seeking approval from Congress. [snip]

    Trump may also expand expedited removal, which allows immediate deportation of people without proper documentation who are found within 100 miles of the border and less than two weeks after entry, Rodriguez said. That would minimize the cost of detention facilities and increase the number of people deported without a hearing. [snip]

    The president can instruct State Department and ICE officials to tighten criteria for letting people into the U.S. and to increase searches at the border, where agents have much more freedom to rifle through people’s belongings than police inside the country. Trump has said the order will hasten adoption of “extreme vetting” procedures.

    Trump has “very broad authority” to tighten entry requirements, particularly if he avoids policies that unfairly single out Muslims or other groups, Fragomen said. [snip]

    The State Department, with a directive from Trump, could slow-walk visas with longer background checks, according to David Leopold, a Cleveland immigration lawyer and former president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. The president could also influence Citizenship and Immigration Services to slow down the adjudication of immigration and asylum cases, he said.

    We rely on the executive branch for most immigration processing, and they could put a monkey wrench in that process,” Leopold said in an interview.

    The Guillotine cometh.

  8. Now that is Civil Service Reform. Sadly, the only way some workers, especially protected government workers, will be productive and follow the orders of those duly elected to run the government is under the threat of “You’re fired.” The unfortunate fact, as demonstrated by the IRS tax cheats, is that the federal bureaucracy needs to be cut back drastically. Also, the tail needs to understand it does not get to shake the big dog.

    . . . . does not get to shake D-O-W-N the dog.

    Which is what they have been doing for a very long time.

    Let their heads role.

    And when they ask how could this happen in our little heaven

    We can say, Lois Lerner showed us that the devil’s tooth, i.e. the guillotine is the only answer.

    So if you have a problem with losing your job, go talk with her.

  9. Milo did an excellent job at the news conference.

    The cowardice of C-PAC is once again apparent

    The word conservative is a meaningless term.

    Donald does need to go there however, not because he owes them anything, but because he needs to light a bonfire under the asses of Ryan and McConnell to get things moving on repealing Obamacare. He needs to make it clear to people like them that under his presidency the welfare of the people is more important than the welfare their fat cat donors.

  10. Trump vs. Deep State:

    When an irresistible force meets an immovable object . . . somethings got to give. Perhaps, when the subpoenas start flying, something will give and the iceberg will crack. Nothing so fixates the mind as the imminent prospect of being hung. They have got to lynch a few deep staters, and in order to deter others. They are all wormwood in a rotting hull. We cannot abide a deep state gone rogue. That is treason and the only cure for treason is a firing squad.
    —–

    Most disturbing are signs that the so-called intelligence community (IC) has gone rogue in collusion with forces aligned around Democratic Party functionaries up to and including former president Obama and Hillary Clinton, along with CNN, The Times, The Wash-Po, NBC News and a few other mouthpieces of the defeated establishment. Obama and Hillary remain conspicuously sequestered from this maelstrom, but they must be working their phones like nobody’s business. (Is the IC monitoring them, too, one wonders?)

    Until his news conference late yesterday, Trump laid pretty low after General Flynn was thrown under the bus, but he must be plotting counter-moves, with Bannon and Steven Miller straining at their leashes, slavering for blood. Will some employees over at the CIA and the — what? — sixteen other IC outposts that stud the government like shipworms in a rotting hulk — be called on the carpet of the oval office, and possibly handed pink slips? How do you drain that swamp in Langley, VA? Perhaps with subpoenas? Surely Jeff Sessions over at the Department of Justice has got to be weighing action against the IC leakers. That shit is against the law.

    Have you asked yourself: what would war with Russia look like if the wishes of ninnies like Senator McCain and Lindsey Graham come true? Where’s the battlefield? Do we dispatch a few divisions over to invade Russia proper? Napoleon and Hitler already tried that… didn’t work out so well. And what’s the strategic objective? To occupy Russia and school them in democracy? That’s rich. Or do we go back to fighting proxy wars with Russia in various Third World backwaters as we did so earnestly in the 1960s. Another Vietnam would be grand, right? Just what we need. Or maybe a fifty-year-war like the one in the Congo. Or should we put aside all that penny-ante nonsense and just Drop the Big One, no a thousand Big Ones! Oh, wait a minute… they’ve got plenty of their own Big Ones.

    Cooking up fake hostilities with the world’s second-leading nuclear super-power is a strange way to run a coup d’état against the White House. I mean, if it’s that bad, the generals and the senior spooks ought to just step up to the plate without further pretense and remove the fucker. But then even if Trump is not their cup of tea, what’s so great about a Deep State security matrix that refuses to be subordinate to anybody, that can do whatever it wants to whomever it wants? This thing is turning into a regular shoot-out at the OK Corral. If you know your history, you’ll recall that Wyatt Earp was hardly the eagle scout he’s depicted as on the boob tube. He was something of a thug, with a mad streak. Maybe that’s what it takes to stand up to the Deep State.

  11. I think you will find this discussion very interesting

    It explains this maniacal rush toward war with Russia, among other things.

    The relevant part begins at 39:30

  12. I think it is a great idea to reduce the salary of deep staters to a dollar a day.

    That would be paying them more than they are worth, but it would send the right message.

    I would do this to those departments or units where there were rats.

    Let peer group pressure destroy the rats.

    On a different subject.

    I think Tucker has hit a wall.

    He needs to stop inviting mentally ill people on his show, and letting them run over him.

    They seem to be getting worse—the one tonight was floridly delusional.

  13. It’s spreading:

    Populist anger is moving politics in Canada.

    In a recent Edelman poll, only 43 per cent of Canadians say they trust their government — down from 53 per cent a year earlier.

    And 80 per cent of Canadians feel the country’s elites are out of touch.

    The findings in the so-called Trust Barometer survey conducted annually by public relations firm Edelman is the first time in 17 years that Canada has joined the ranks of “distruster” countries in which more than half of citizens say they distrust their civic institutions.

    Author and journalist Susan Delacourt says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should be really concerned. This spike in distrust and cynicism is the same sentiment that propelled Donald Trump to the White House, and it is gaining ground here.

    “We tend to be smug in Canada and candid and think that we don’t have the problems we’ve been seeing in the United States … I don’t think we should be, ” Delacourt tells The Current’s guest host Laura Lynch.

  14. What I am hearing about Milo is that he is one sick puppy who thinks only pre-puebesant children are entitled to protection from sexual exploitation. He looks to me like an untreated case of child sexual abuse and he should get more therapy before taking it to a pubic stage. He ever got near my young son and I would land on his face, claws first.

  15. Actually Milo has stated repeatedly that age of consent is about appropriate, which in most countries is16, he also said 14 is too young. He agrees he has issues to work on but quite frankly 16 is about average for heterosexual population.

  16. What I am hearing about Milo is that he is one sick puppy

    Have you any hard evidence of this, or are you simply repeating rankest hearsay?

    Knowing who was behind this you may want to be skeptical of anything you are “hearing”.

    A gay conservative is a prime target of the left, because ALL gays are supposed to be progressives.

    Be very skeptical of what you hear.

    Unless there is credible evidence.

  17. The Lois Lerner example is the prototype of the sleeper cells who are embedded in other bureacracies e.g. CIA, EPA, State etc.

    By that I mean a political appointee who embeds in the bureacracy and targets the public, as Lerner did with impunity at IRS.

    Or leaks information to allies in big media for partisan ends, and thereby paralyzes the country.

    Lerner deserved a firing squad.

    Instead she received $120,000 per year in taxpayer benefits, plus, undoubtedly, hush money.

    And congressional efforts to investigate and hold her accountable were a miserable failure.

    The question is did we learn anything about how to identify, humiliate and fry traitors like her.

    I believe you start with the profile of who is a Obama, or Clinton appointee.

    Then, you investigate with a bias that they are all guilty until proven innocent.

    And you offer rewards and group punishment (wage reductions, etc.) to pop the boil.

    A nation can ill afford to have this fifth column operating at cross purposes to the nation.

    A friend of mine who is connected to the media said they will have to out some of these big media heads as well.

    This is what is meant by the expression clearing ouit the swamp.

  18. I would give these fifth columnists the Joe Stalin treatment, which includes, among other niceties, a bayonet up their ass literally. Uncle Joe, bless his heart, was known for that sort of thing. But I will say this much in his defense: he never waterboarded anyone, because he knew that waterboarding is inhuman and was inherently unreliable.

    BRZEZINSKI: ‘OUR JOB’ IS TO CONTROL ‘EXACTLY WHAT PEOPLE THINK’
    ‘He is trying to undermine the media’

    Controlling “exactly what people think” is the job of the media, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski boldly declared Wednesday morning.

    While discussing President Trump’s entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Bzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media.

    “And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think,” Brzezinski said. “And that, that is our job.”

    SCARBOROUGH: “Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.'”

    BRZEZINSKI: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”

    The comment failed to raise any eyebrows from her co-panelists. Instead, her co-host, Joe Scarborough, said that Trump’s media antagonism puts him on par with Mussolini and Lenin.

    SCARBOROUGH: “It’s the — it’s the ground noise that he is throwing out there also, whether he is questioning, Mark, the legitimacy of federal judges to do what they have done since Marbury v. Madison. It’s when he says the media is the, quote –”

    BRZEZINSKI: “Enemy.”

    SCARBOROUGH: “– ‘enemy of the people’, where he sounds like Mussolini or Lenin which obviously causes concern that phrase right there makes him sound more like a dictator in training, when he sends Stephen Miller out and says, basically the president has absolute power, he shall not be questioned.”

    Scarborough also accused Trump’s base of having a “blind spot” on the issue of illegal immigration.

    “We have an economy, let’s face it, we have an economy that is built on illegal immigration,” Scarborough said. “We have an economy that is built on that. That is why I say why don’t you just legalize it?

    Illegal immigration? “just legalize it” says Joe. And they wonder why Trump trumps.

  20. The amazing thing about Uncle Joe was he never signed the Geneva convention, but he still knew that water boarding was inhuman.

    Obviously, he found more politically correct ways to dispose of 30 million people.

    Time shares in Siberia, and other perks like that.

    He too was a progressive, and was a little ahead of his time.

  21. Controlling “exactly what people think” is the job of the media, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski boldly declared Wednesday morning.

    She needs to go all the way:

    • A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth
    Joseph Goebbels (Lying, Thousand, Remains)

    Arguments must therefore be crude, clear and forcible, and appeal to emotions and instincts, not the intellect.
    Joseph Goebbels (Men, Yield, Psychology)

    • If you tell the same lie enough times, people will believe it; and the bigger the lie, the better.
    Joseph Goebbels (Lying, Believe, People)

    • Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated
    are confident they are acting on their own free will.
    Joseph Goebbels (Acting, Free Will, Propaganda)

    • Propaganda must facilitate the displacement of aggression by specifying the targets for hatred.
    Joseph Goebbels (Hatred, Target, Propaganda)

    The rank and file are usually much more primitive than we imagine. Propaganda must therefore always be essentially simple and repetitious. Joseph Goebbels (Gun, Simple, Imagine)

    • This is the secret of propaganda: Those who are to be persuaded by it should be completely immersed in the ideas of the propaganda, without noticing that they are being immersed in it. Joseph Goebbels (Ideas, Secret,Propaganda)

    • The truth is the greatest enemy of the State. Joseph Goebbels (Enemy, German History, Nazism)

    • Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play. Joseph Goebbels (Peace, War, Thinking)

    • The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Joseph Goebbels (Truth, Yield, Media Control)

    • We enter parliament in order to supply ourselves, in the arsenal of democracy, with its own weapons. If democracy is so stupid as to give us free tickets and salaries for this bear’s work, that is its affair. We do not come as friends, nor even as neutrals. We come as enemies. As the wolf bursts into the flock, so we come. Joseph Goebbels (Stupid, Order, Giving)

    • It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise Joseph Goebbels (Squares, Circles, Ideas)

    It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion. Joseph Goebbels (School, Public Opinion,Propagandas)

    • Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose. Joseph Goebbels (Purpose, News, Propaganda)

    • If you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.
    Joseph Goebbels (Lying, Long, Interesting)

  22. If you run down that list, it becomes obvious that big media has crossed each of those lines again and again. So when Chris Wallace asks whether Trump has crossed a line, the only proper response is what line are you referring to? And, let him who hath not crossed that line themselves cast the first stone.

  23. 79% want congress to compromise?

    Give me a fucking break.

    60% of the country approves of what Trump is doing.

    How does that square with that phony msnbc poll.

    Where do they get this shit?

    Yup. The age of consent may be 18 years here in the US, but in the U.K. where Milo is from, it is 16 years.

  25. I hope that Donald doesn’t still believe that Mika & Joe S are his ffriends because they are not
    They stick the knife in his back every morning and go for every low blow they can dream up…and encourage all their guests to join in

    Unwatchable

    Jealous people. ..who think they no better than DT

  26. Mika and Joe are idiots and get wayyyy tooo much press. In actuality their numbers are not that great.

    Mika is dumb as a bushel of rocks and Joe is right in there with her. The only reason he was a Republican was to take advantage of his district at the time. I don’t see why people give them the time of day and clicks

    She is the definition of a dumb blonde, no offense to smart blondes everywhere.

    I know we want to know what the opposition is saying, and thank you for doing it for me cause I can’t go there.

    The entire alt Left is so crazy now, I am ashamed I was on that wheel house as long as I was.

    It is more than an issue of the age of consent. The other thing determines the exploitative nature of sexual overtures and relations is the age difference issue. The law basically states that if someone over 18 years of age has sex with someone under 18 years of age, and they are more than three years older, then it is statutory rape, unless they get parental consent.

    Milo has his story in line with this now, but his past statements are very confused, more so on the age difference issue than the age of consent. He has been and probably still is, a sick puppy. He is learning the right things to say, but I sure hope he is getting responsible therapy.

    Milo gives himself away as a sick puppy in his views of women as well as child and adolescent sex with adults. There is no editing on what I have heard there, also. Imagine a gay man who defines feminism and dismisses it as failed, with particular contempt and disrespect. Feminism always fails when men define it. Yea, all offensive opinions given under the protection of free speech. All he proves is that, just because you are free to do something, it does not mean you should. MY opinion of him is that he is a sick puppy who should be running his head with his therapist, instead of in a public forum. As a free speech issue, I would defend his right to do that. But I would not otherwise waste my time listening to the trash he talks.

    Oh yes Lu4PUMA — you are sooooo right. It is ridiculous to believe Milo when he says he was referring to young men (17, 18, etc) because no one every used the term “boys” to refer to anything but children. Like “playboy” or “boy’s night” or “boys will be boys” — all obviously referring to 12 year olds.
    Thank goodness for the pedantic watchdogs of morality like you!!

    those two have his back…

  33. I have numerous gay male friends and the term ” boys” is used loosely, I have heard 30 year olds calling each other that.
    As far as feminism, clearly he’s right, the so called leadership during the protest with their pussy hats,bloody sheets , hijabs, pretty much shows how backwards this generation has gone.

    There is nothing pedantic about challenging Milo’s lame explanations for promoting the sexual exploitation of boys. And insulting me will not change what Milo has done. If he had not done it, why did he apologize so much for it, albeit that he waffled about his intent.

    Not the night out or will be boys or play, he has been quoted referring to “young boys” and adolescents. All that clarification to the contrary came later.

    Has anyone even questioned his bizarre claim about the three perpetrators he was the victim of? THREE?

    Insulting me will not change what Milo has been called out for saying. And thank God he has because if he has not already been a perpetrator, he was well on his way with all his rationalizations and justifications. He is obviously a sick puppy.

    It is not an issue of morality. I have seen, too many times in my life, how devastating the emotional damage is to the victims. No, it is not play, or a night out, or will be boys. It is the destruction of a young human being.

  35. I love Milo and I know he really made a difference in a lot of gay people accepting and voting for Trump. For that I’m grateful. Milo’s full statement:

    I am a gay man, and a child abuse victim.

    Between the ages of 13 and 16, two men touched me in ways they should not have. One of those men was a priest.

    My relationship with my abusers is complicated by the fact that, at the time, I did not perceive what was happening to me as abusive. I can look back now and see that it was. I still don’t view myself as a victim. But I am one.

    Looking back, I can see the effects it had on me. In the years after what happened, I fell into alcohol and nihilistic partying that lasted well into my late 20s.

    A few years ago I realised it was time to do something good with my life. I started focusing on work. But the black comedy, gallows humor and love of shock value I developed in my 20s did not go away.

    I’ve reviewed the tapes that appeared last night in their proper full context and I don’t believe they say what is being reported. Nonetheless I do say some things on the tapes that I do not mean and which do not reflect my views.

    My experiences as a victim led me to believe I could say anything I wanted to on this subject, no matter how outrageous. But I understand that my usual blend of British sarcasm, provocation and gallows humor might have come across as flippancy, a lack of care for other victims or, worse, “advocacy.” I am horrified by that impression.

    I would like to restate my disgust at adults who sexually abuse minors. I am horrified by pedophilia and I have devoted large portions of my career as a journalist to exposing child abusers. I’ve outed three of them, in fact — three more than most of my critics.

    And I’ve repeatedly expressed disgust at pedophilia in my feature and opinion writing. I was also the first journalist in the UK to ask after Jimmy Savile’s death whether the real story of his rampant child abuse would ever be told. My professional record is very clear.

    But I do understand that the videos you have seen, even though some of them were deceptively edited, paint a different picture. I am partly to blame.

    I do not advocate for illegal behavior. I explicitly say on the tapes, in a section that was cut from the footage you have seen, that I think the current age of consent is “about right.” I do not believe any change in the the legal age of consent is justifiable or desirable.

    I do not believe sex with 13-year-olds is okay. When I mentioned the number 13, I was talking about myself, and the age I lost my own virginity.

    I shouldn’t have used the word “boy” — which gay men often do to describe young men of consenting age — instead of “young man.” That was an error. I was talking about my own relationship when I was 17 with a man who was 29. The age of consent in the UK is 16.

    I did say that there are relationships between younger men and older men that can help a young gay man escape from a lack of support or understanding at home. That’s perfectly true and every gay man knows it.

    I am certainly guilty of imprecise language, which I regret.

    Anyone who suggests I turn a blind eye to illegal activity or to the abuse of minors is unequivocally wrong. I am implacably opposed to the normalization of pedophilia and I will continue to report and speak accordingly. To repeat: I do not support pedophilia. It is a disgusting crime of which I have personally been a victim.

    The remarks I made on podcasts and interviews more than a year ago were about my personal life experiences. I will not apologize for dealing with my life experiences in the best way that I can, which is humor. No one can tell me or anyone else who has lived through sexual abuse how to deal with those emotions.

    But I am sorry to other abuse victims if my own personal way of dealing with what happened to me has hurt you.

    I will never stop making jokes about taboo subjects. Go into any drag bar or gay club and you will see performers cracking jokes about clerical sexual abuse. I am not afforded that same freedom, because the media chooses to selectively define me as a political figure in some circumstances, and a comedian in others.

    But I said some things on those internet live streams that were simply wrong.

    My employer Breitbart News has stood by me when others caved. They have allowed me to carry conservative and libertarian ideas to communities that would otherwise never have heard them. They have been a significant factor in my success. I’m grateful for that freedom and for the friendships I forged there.

    I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues’ important reporting, which is why today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately. This decision is mine alone.

    When your friends have done right by you, you do right by them. For me, now, that means stepping aside so my colleagues at Breitbart can get back to the great work they do.

    My book, Dangerous, has received interest from publishers after my previous publisher Simon and Schuster informed me they no longer wished to release it. The book will come out this year as planned. I will be donating 10 per cent of my royalties to child sex abuse charities.

    I haven’t ever apologized before. Name-calling doesn’t bother me. But to be a victim of child abuse and for the media to call me an apologist for child abuse is absurd.

    I regret the things I said. I don’t think I’ve been as sorry about anything in my whole life. This isn’t how I wanted my parents to find out about this.

    But let’s be clear what is happening here. This is a cynical media witch hunt from people who don’t care about children. They care about destroying me and my career, and by extension my allies. They know that although I made some outrageous statements, I’ve never actually done anything wrong. These videos have been out there for more than a year. The media held this story back because they don’t care about victims, they only care about bringing me down. They will fail.

    I will be announcing a new, independently-funded media venture of my own and a live tour in the coming weeks.

    I started my career as a technology reporter who wrote about politics but I have since become something else. I am a performer with millions of fans in America and beyond. I’m grateful for the tens of thousands of messages of support I’ve received and I look forward to making you all laugh, cry and think for many decades to come.

    My full focus is now going to be on entertaining and educating everyone, left, right and otherwise. If you want to brand or stereotype me, good luck with that.

    Don’t think for a moment that this will stop me being as offensive, provocative and outrageously funny as I want on any subject I want. America has a colossal free speech problem. The land of the First Amendment has some of the most oppressive social restrictions on free expression anywhere in the western world. I’m proud to be a warrior for free speech and creative expression.

    I want everyone in America, the greatest country in the history of human civilisation, to be able to be, do, read and say anything. I will never stop fighting for your right to do that.

    Thank you. I will take 5 questions.

  36. Geez ,and there is Lu, always judge and jury, and always right!

    How lucky we are!

    So glad that 12 step program is going so well for you …NOT!

    Nice speech, but what Milo did, that he is apologizing for, is the promotion of the sexual exploitation of minors. It is one thing to accept his apology. It is another to deny what he did. I would seriously question his use of language as an excuse and I think it detracts from the apology as more of a rationalization and justification. I stand corrected on the number of perpetrators he had as two when I though he said three.

    However, I also find his views on women and feminism offensive and stand by my opinion that he is a sick puppy.

    But then, I really just do not like a lot of things about conservatism. So call me a moderate liberal who just really is not into Milo.

    I hope he makes the most of the opportunity and has a good life.

  38. Lu,

    I know a great deal about the 12 Steps and that’s why I know you are a raging dry drunk.
    You know nothing Lu…

    Cuomo needs to lose his job and have CPS involved for a well check with his daughters

  39. I tweeted and put Cuomos statement on FB a bit ago, everyone should since no one watches his sh$t show, they need to see what the reality is.

  40. gonzotx,

    You know nothing about a 12 Step Program except how to tell other people to work it.

    You have probably gotten more people drunk than Anheuser-Busch.

    When the truth no longer matters, it gets down to one simple question:

    Whose side are you on? Trump’s or the globalist.

    That is the practice of Steinham and the rest of the left.

    They are all for women’s right until one of their own violates them.

    Stefan makes the argument that Milo crossed the line when he endorsed what the Catholic priest did to him at age 13.

    The left condemned him for that, yet they gave a standing ovation to Roman Pelansky who did the same thing.

    In an age of lies, truth is a revolutionary act.

    But in such an age, the ultimate question is whose side are you on.

    Personally, I am on Trump’s side, and I will not support a leftist take down of a leading representative of free speech.

    Nor will I join the chorus who called for Flynn’s head, because he is on Trump’s side, which is my side.

    To repeat, in a civil war, the only question that matters is whose side are you on.

  42. Recently, Ty rex cleaned out the seventh floor of the State Department. The most conspicuous casualty was the ethically challenged Patrick Kennedy, who was sought to bribe the FBI not to investigate Hillary’s emails, the importation of millions of Muslims who defied Trump’s edict, the crazy war in Syria which the heroic democrat congresswoman from Hawaii blew the whistle on much to the chargrin of her own party who is in bed with them, the sociopathic Victoria Neuland who is married to NEOCON Robert Kagen, who along with Bill Kristol drafted the manifesto for endless war called The Project for a New American Century, and who along with Soros ran the coup in Ukraine, and was overheard telling the rebels who she wanted for the new President, which is part of the motivation behind seeking a dangerous confrontation with Russia. Big media is their tool. So again, the only question that matters is whose side are you on: nationalists or globalists? Trump/Bannon or Obama/Soros. The choice is binary, but only for those who have done their homework. The rest can be easily manipulated and controlled through the massive propaganda techniques of Goebbels, which I posted yesterday, so we all know the game that is being played.
    ———-

    Three years ago this week, a Molotov-cocktail-throwing mob on the streets of Kiev occupied government buildings, perpetrating violence and driving the duly elected president of the nation out of office and out of the country. The leading groups in the mob were waving portraits of Stepan Bandera, Adolf Hitler’s collaborator in Ukraine during World War II. Today, the same British and American intelligence institutions, and many of the same individuals, are attempting to repeat the process, only this time the target is the democratically elected government of the United States itself. The reasoning is the same: the Empire must maintain the division of the world into competing blocs, the divide and conquer policy of Empire since the time of the Romans. The East vs. West divide nearly collapsed when the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s, ending the excuse of the Free World vs. The Obama Administration, and London, not only welcomed the violent coup in Ukraine in 2014, as a means to justify a new NATO military mobilization against Russia, but rather, they created it. Obama and his spokesmen proudly announced that the United States had financed and orchestrated the organizations participating in the demonstrations on the public square, the Maidan. Obama’s direct agent for the coup, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, visited the rioters several times, handing out cookies on the Maidan, while refusing to acknowledge that in addition to peaceful demonstrators concerned about corruption and economic hardships, there were also openly neo-fascist gangs conducting an armed insurrection against the elected government. Nuland was also caught by a phone tap instructing the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine on precisely who was to be made Prime Minister in the new government, after the President was toppled. The result of the coup for the Ukrainian people has been an unmitigated horror.

  43. this time the target (of the Soros/CIA cabal) is the democratically elected government of the United States itself
    ———
    This afternoon, I was told that Obama will be moving back into a heavily guarded mansion in the greater Washington DC area, and has recruited 34,000 people under the old tired banner of Organizing for America to disrupt the nation, and challenge Trump.

    Once again, the same question is presented: whose side are you on? Everyone must answer that question for themselves. It is no longer a question that can be ducked, sidestepped or ignored. Even the congenitally complacent must weigh in. It is a matter of survival, given that the globalists have planned.

  44. Lu,

    That’s the thing though, alcohol at first is fun, but then someone ends up like you, and that’s not fun is it?

  45. Gee, thanks Gonzotx, but I have a sponsor already and if I was going to get another, it would not be you. I am a long standing member and know you are a poser and a hypocrite.

    You habitually snark personal insults instead of staying on topic and contributing. And your obsession with my program, that is none of your business, is disturbing. You do not know me and the advise you are giving is the advise you need to take for yourself.

    Well I guess we disagree and I believe the truth matters. I will not propagandize. That is the problem not the solution and we need something better than that.

    Milo will not be taken down by the truth. Either he will own it and triumph with it or he will become some who does not deserve support.

    The truth matters. The issue matters. I have seen first hand the devastation that sexual exploitation of minors brings and it is something I have fought in the field and in the courts, all my life. It is a story longer than my 5th Circuit story, that continues today. A story of 4 minors, ages 15, 13, 10 and 3 where the 18 year old babysitter decided it was OK to have sex with the 15 and 13 year old boys. I guess you are not disgusted. Then the 13 year old engaged the 10 year old in using the 3 year old girl as a sex toy. Are you disgusted yet? Mom was on crack and did not care. Well I tried to help that girl. I fought in the courts and with the so called protective services and raised her for a few years, myself. The case was a child protective service disaster. Today, that 3 year old girl is 29 and has Hepatitis C and a 6 month old baby whose father is in prison. She still calls me and I do what I can. The only one who escaped with any normalcy was the 10 year old boy whose father I had to threaten with public exposure if he did not get him out of there.

    And that is to say nothing of my own family of origin where I have 3 female first cousins who are incest survivors.

    The truth matters. This is something Trump understands very well and has used successfully. That is a big part of why I would support him while I do not agree with all his policies and I am more of a liberal than a conservative.

  47. The ripple effect. President Trump’s immigration policy is just at the beginning phase and it is already showing how profoundly it is going to affect economics, society, and the legal system of the US.

    A trial lawyer I have known for many years, a bleeding heart liberal and a generally good guy, told me the immigrants in this country are just figuring out what hit them November 8th. Having done a few immigration cases over the decades he has been contacted by various people to represent the “undocumented”. He said if they were only “undocumented” it would be a relatively easy thing to work on. But they are documented. “Documented” in fraud and a string of crimes as long as his leg he said (he is a towering 6’6″). He is taking a pass on these lovely cases which are like unwinding silk worm cocoons. They want to apply for legal status using fake addresses (provided by the Mexican government?) while continuing on their merry, thieving way frequenting his office and not paying him. He said the Mexican government’s “fund” of 50 million bucks for legal aid of their fraudulent citizenry would cover the fees for maybe five square miles of Harris County Texas illegals.

    Mexico, a deeply corrupt and nihilist society, is at a loss. Used to sixteen years (the Bushes love the dirty money to be made in Mexico) of wink, wink, nod, nod of non and/or selective enforcement of borders, work permits, identity thieves, benefit parasites, narco thugs, and general organized crime running amok are gobsmacked that actual enforcement is on the table. The “Oh shit!” umbrage and macho man hysteria is to be expected. What are they going to do? Declare war and lose their ass?

    When President Trump said Mexico “doesn’t send their best” it stung in Mexico. Because it is true. Not the legal immigrants from Mexico. The illegals who seem to have a nomad philosophy that roaming for resources is a human right and a fantasy belief that they can be whoever they chose to be on any given day. Even the Aztecs and Mayans didn’t believe that. Nor did the Spaniards. George Soros convinced Mexico City of this fairly recently. Mexico is looking at re-homing millions of people who were marginal in Mexico and considered excess population and told to head El Norte and send back money. The Mexican government taught them how to be frauds, liars, bums, drug dealers, and general nuisances with their “instruction” sheets on how to game the system in the US.

    The SOS and the DHS secretary opened with President Trump’s initial offer yesterday in Mexico City. YOU, Mexico, are going to take back every single living person who entered the US illegally from your soil. The screaming was terrible. Unaccompanied minors (give them to the Catholic Church), narcos, single mothers with numerous handicapped children, Muslim Africans, Mayan warriors who are now MS 13 gangs from Honduras, Chinese spies who landed in Baja, etc. They are terrified. Our rich people are not going to pay for this! And in negotiating strategy 101 Mexico is supposed to be terrified. They are afraid that the US is going to do to them what they did with such glee to the US. They are going to run to the UN and tattle.

    Like Merkel in Germany, Mexico did too much too soon with the encouragement of tone deaf Obama (backed by Soros in both countries). Germany and Mexico shot their empathy/sympathy wad with wall to wall media coverage of “tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free” who looked more like grinning, militant, thugs humping it for freebies and a carte blanche for mayhem.

    The worm turns. The money the US is going to save (not spend) is going to be YUGE. Lucky Trump.

  48. Actually Lu it was YOU who started this if you want to re read your “snarky” comments.
    But alas you are always the “victim” and Shield Maiden.
    And then there is always the drama stories from you, fighting the good fight as only you can.
    Have a good talk with your sponsor.
    I am sure everyone is tired of this triad, so I will of course give you the last “word”.

  49. Trump just now:

    The biggest companies were there.
    Caterpillar.
    Campbell Soup.
    …I like Campbell Soup(s)….

  50. interesting…the media is now pushing ‘how united is the republican party’ ‘there are divisions in the republican party’ ‘ the republicans is fighting for its soul’ bla, bla…

    washington journal this am…GOP only ‘is the GOP united or divided’, etc

    for me, the irony is…first of all the media and Dim party should take a good look at themselves in the mirror…the dims look…and sound…like a bunch of raving maniacs…not the kind of behavior a parent would teach their children

    but put that aside…

    no one…seems to want to consider all the registered Dems that bolted the party for the Trump train…regardless if they had to register as a repub to do it…and they …many of us…are never going back to the crazy Dims…

    beyond that…the media and dims do not seem to want to recognize that many voters…independent voters and voters who never voted before…voted for the Trump train…or Trump party, if you will…and there is no way in hell they are getting off to go join the crazies yelling their heads off in the streets and at town halls…those who ‘resist’ for the sake of ‘resisting’ accomplishing nothing…

    so scream on you crazies…it just attracts more sane and responsible…and coherent people to the Trump party…

    I actually feel sorry for some of our old ‘friends’ who defected and are now in the wilderness…too bad, because some of them come to mind…and Prez Trump is doing what many of them used to state here was what they wanted…

    that old…cut off your nose to spite your face thingie again…or stay in the corner and stomp your feet…

    so much childish and foolish behavior going on with the likes of the Dims and their sources of inspiration, such as Michael Moore, Alec Baldwin, Chris Cuomo, the pervert, Miss Manners, Maxine Waters,resident Farrachon Muslim, Anti-Semite instigator, Keith Ellison…the list goes on and on…

    the loudmouths love to hear themselves screaming…

    I will take our fighter any day, Prez Trump and the movement he inspired…

    as my Dad would always say ‘the partys over’ back to reality and time to get to work…

  51. Yes S, the Party is over, the once great Democratic Party. At this point maybe it never was, none of them, it really is character over Party, but I think there was a time it wasn’t so corrupt and Democratics tried to do the right things, Roosevelt comes to mind, both actually, different Party’s. Kennedy. But as I get older I do believe he probably did lose to Nixon and got his Presidency by means of the dirty Daley machine. Then “they” took it away from him, and then “they” killed Bobby, who I think would have stopped the American involvement in the Vietnam War. Maybe it was my age, but I think he had a spiritual conversion after his brother was murdered and I think he would have been the best of them.

    Actually, you are wrong. And nobody in their right mind is going to believe that an objection to being snarked by you is justification for your personal insults and bullying. And as for my sponsor, she says she is none of your business, either.

  53. Haven’t watched in years. So tired of their elistis butts giving themselves honors continuously. Then they throw in the political crap. I stopped going to movies for the most part. I go like 3 times a year with my friends or daughters friends, we go to a place called The Alamo and you can have dinner and a movie.
    I have Netflix and Apple

  54. the Dims are even worse than we imagined…

    now they have ‘witches’ putting spells on Donald and his supporters…

    they are now playing with fire…this is the epitome of NEGATIVE energy

    the Dims have now gone SATANIC..

    they are playing with the ‘devil’…wishing evil on others… and they better watch what they are hoping for…because negative energy has a very strange way of boomerranging…

  55. DNC votes today for their new chairman. Should be interesting to say the least.
    Keith Ellison, such a nice waspy name for a Nation of Islam anti-Semite freak. Get out the popcorn.

  56. Keith Ellison vs Tom Perez. They are both hideous. Unbelievable what the Democratic Party has become. FDR and JFK spinning in their graves. How sad.

  57. Well I guess we disagree and I believe the truth matters
    ————
    For me, it is a matter of self discipline.

    When to speak and when to hold your tongue, even though you are dying to speak.

    The truth—meaning the objective empirical truth no longer matters.

    It has been censored, corrupted and dismissed by the left.

    And most of the public does not get it.

    The only thing that matters is the cause.

    You will notice that during the past month the left has taken down 2 leading conservatives.

    How many leftists have gone done.

    Where the left is concerned I am inclined toward the view of kill them all and let god sort them out.

    But if I were to apply that principle literally I’d be damned if I could figure out where to start.

    Thus, the best I can do if follow Reagan’s 11th commandment.

    Thou shalt not attack anyone who is on the right side.

  58. Wbboei,

    Your point is well taken. However, if this is the game, then Trumps chances are poor. He wins by changing the game. Compare the Milo situation to Trumps Billy Bushwacker groper situation. In particular, notice the difference in the apologies. And I go back to the 12-Step model where one takes their own inventory, makes apologies and whatever amends can be made to anyone harmed, and is done with it. Then he is back to the fight, ignoring and marginalizing further fuss. He walks like the righteous because he feels that way. The locker room talk about consenting groupies is actually quite defensible, but he spent minimal time doing that.

    Flynn’s apology to Pence was not public information. Why did he not make a public one, also? I suspect he took himself down when he did not have to go. Milo filled his apology with denials and rationalizations. It was all about him and not those he “harmed”. His enemies will smell the blood and continue to exploit his weakness. But then maybe Milo wanted to leave the issue open to sell more books. I suspect he is a ways from being “taken down”.

    Yes, I think the truth matters and Trump know how to use it like a knife and recover from any wounds he gets. And most of all, Trump knows how to fight. So far it has been great watching him win. Those around him must learn how to fight like he fights if they want to win with him.

  59. Lu: there is a back story to the Flynn/Pence story. A friend of mine knows both of them. This individual knows, as I know, and you have probably figured out, there is no way NO WAY they intercepted the conversation on his end. It was captured by globalists in British intelligence who were monitoring the Russian ambassador, who passed it along to Brennan who passed it along to the administration, and big media. They primary objective of the intercept was to smear Trump as pro Russian, but when Pence went out and defended him they saw an opportunity to drive a wedge within the Administration, and they took it. My friend is a staunch Flynn enthusiast, as am I. She does not like Pense because he is a pro life advocate, and in her opinion more than a little holier than thou. And my friend sees Pence, an ally of the Wisconsin anti Trump cabal, as someone not to be entirely trusted. Whether that played a part in Flynn’s failure to inform Pense that the Russian ambassador asked about sanctions, and Flynn said everything would be on the table with the new president is an imponderable. My friend believes that Pence could have finnessed the problem and saved Flynn but instead put on his holy roller hat and condemned him, to the delight of big media. The important thing to know is that Flynn is still loyal to and respected by President Trump.

  60. Lu: as for Milo, sadly, he is finished, because he his comments about his own experiences can be easily twisted into a general support for pedophilia, which is the only remaining taboo in this dysfunctional society. His heartfelt confession does not alter that perception, much as I wish it would. It is a tragic thing UNLESS one accepts the idea that this is a war, and casualties are to be expected, so long as the army continues to move forward. The question is what is the body count on the other side. Has Jeff Zuckerman led an exemplary life, or are their skeletons in his closet which will be brought out. Another friend of mine said this will not change until the corporate pigs in big media have some of their own skin in the game.

  61. Lu: there is support for your view. During the dark days of World War II, the greatest appellate court judge who never made it to the Supreme Court because in the salad days of his youth he committed the cardinal sin of being a bull mooser and telling the gilded age billionaires of his day: ill fares the land with hastening ills aprey, where wealth accumulates and men decay. His name was Learned Hand, and in 1944, while our troops were hitting Omaha beach (and the wife he loved was cavorting with her French teacher) he concluded a long remembered speech in Central Park entitled The Spirit of Liberty, which advanced the premise that the spirit of liberty is the spirit that is not too sure it is right. And in it, he also contended that we cannot sink to the level of our adversaries. These are noble sentiments in the abstract, They answer Pope’s question of whether man is more a god than a beast. But the troops on Omaha beach had no time for such sentiments, give the prospects for annihilation they were facing on that beach half a world away from Central Park. We are engaged in a similar war with radical Islam and the left, who are the nazis of our day, and any mercy we show them will be seen as weakness. Sadly, that is how the totalitarian mind operates. But don’t take my word for it. Read the rules for radicals, or the pertinent clauses in the Koran.

  62. I don’t think Milo is done Wbb, but we will see, I think he can regroup. Seems to me he is being held guilty of being a flamboyant gay. Without Brietbart support, it will be harder, but his book will be picked up and he does have a large number of suppprters. We all learn things the hard way unfortunately it seems.
    As far as Flynn, I still feel his being let go solved nothing and wondered why Pense even went out on the 5 shows that Sunday. If your friend knows them both, and can say, what exactly did Flynn say to Pense, the only thing I can think of is that he said the subject didn’t come up at all. I didn’t listen to Pense on the shows so I am just trying to make sense of it.
    Saying everything will be looked at after Jan 20 doesn’t seem like a federal offense.
    I can only assume he said the subject did not come up at all, and then Pense went out on the shows.

  63. We are starting to develop some clear terminology to describe what is going on, and thank god for that. The term conservative and liberal have lost all meaning. The words globalist and nationalist are descriptive and prescriptive, and provide a new vehicle for sorting and labeling. Glenn Greenwald’s term Deep State is important for those reasons, and to clarify who the real enemy is. And now the term Administrative State, mentioned by Steve Banno as the thing that needs to be torn down if we are to have liberty and prosperity in this nation. We have been on to this game for awhile, and we said the goal was to convert the United States from a constitutional democracy into an exact replica of the European Union, which his controlled by globalists, administered by bureaucrats, and manipulated by demagogues like the big media beloved Obama, which are then tied to eachother along through a Trans Atlantic Union, and TPP. But the Administrative State is the perfect label to describe this hell on earth, and the hiring hall for the Administrative State is The Kennedy School of Government and Harvard Law School where, according to Christian Adams, the core cirriculum has been altered (not supplemented) to emphasize world government. The take down of the globalist begins with the language we use to define him. The new terms work. The old ones are not only obsolete, but materially misleading.

  64. wbboei,

    From what you say, it was not the left that took Flynn down, it was Pence and the globalist gopers. I agree with your friend about him. And I think Milo did himself in. We will get to see if he is really done.

    I am not so sure it is radical islam and the left that characterize the enemy. McCain made a special trip to Syria recently, some say to start the ISIS paper shredders going. It seems they are all the enemy. And then there is Trump.

  65. I spoke with a neighbor who has been a market maker for Birkshire Hathaway since the late 1950s, and was originally with Dean Whitter. He said that that old crustacean, unlike Soros, has dumped twelve billion into the stock market since the first of the year. And for some damned reason, maybe just being polite, he did not feel that I was an idiot to jump into gold, like Soros did on the eve of the election. Buffet told his investors that the one thing he worries about, that could turn everything upside down is a terrorist attack on this country. To my knowledge, he has never said that before. Now just suppose his worst fears were realized? It is clear to me that the radical left would join forces with the terrorists to take down the country, not because they were co conspirators before the fact, but because they hate America just as much as the jihadists do. It goes to motive, means and opportunity. There is no doubt in my mind that Homeland Security and local law enforcement law enforcement is proceeding on that assumption, except for the sanctuary cities who will be keen to give protection to the murderers. You can make book on that one as well. For those mayors hate America as well.

  66. gonzo I agree with you. I don’t think Milo is done either. I know he has a huge following and think he’ll make his way back. I only have one comment to make to you Lu4Puma. I try to stay out of the snakiness I see you spewing but you are very quick to judge people and situations and I’m not talking specifically about Milo. I think some self reflection is in order.

    I am saying it was the deep state, the dims and the media who took him down. That IS the institutional left. The grass roots crazies are just useful idiots. I do not think Pence took him down intentionally. I think Pence got too caught up in the holier than thou part, to realize the situation could be finessed. That was my friend’s point.

    But they do get their hands very dirty accepting donor money.

  71. I know wbb, I was hoping it was the muzzle from MN. It would have been the nail. I think obama still has a great deal of power . Clintons backing at this point may not be a plus, geez, she wasn’t even acknowledged as a leader at the pussyfest.

  73. You know, I am sick and tired of the personal attacks. I have watched Gonzotx drive people off the board with them and I would consider leaving myself. If you cannot defend your position without them, maybe you do not have one.

    And as for Milo and the multiple personal insults and attacks around my criticism of him, it has only validated negative views of him.

  74. Trump won’t be attending.
