Ten Years After: From Hillary Clinton To @RealDonaldTrump

The country, had to hit Ba-rock bottom. We are reconciled to the Barack Obama presidency now that it is over. We are reconciled to the Obama occupation of the White House because we realize that as painful, as horrible, as destructive and hateful as it was, the country had to hit rock bottom. The eight years of Barack bottom horrors had to be endured so that we could enjoy the election of Donald J. Trump, the man that ran on the idea of “Make America Great Again”.

It’s our tenth anniversary. On April 19, 2007 we began to publish this website. How does the preeminent pro-Hillary Clinton website go from there to proud support of Donald J. Trump? How? Donald J. Trump answered that question for us all with the selection of his campaign theme song: “You Can’t Always Get What You Want. . . but if you try… sometimes, you might find, you get what you need.”

America needed Donald J. Trump. To get there, to get to the top, we had to endure the Obama swamps, the bottom of the barrel. We had to hit Ba-rock bottom.

A Hillary Clinton victory in 2008, as much as we wanted it, was not what the country needed. A John McCain victory in 2008, as much as we wanted it, was not what the country needed. A Mitt Romney victory in 2012, as much as we wanted it, was not what the country needed. We didn’t get what we wanted. We got what we needed.

John McCain, war hero, was not about to end the neo-con wars. Mitt Romney was the cause of our meltdown when we realized that he would not win. Mitt Romney at best would have been a slow motion mud-slide like President George H.W. Bush. Hillary, McCain, Romney would have been much much better presidents than Barack Obama. But the country needed to hit Ba-rock bottom just like any drunk or addict before it could recover, get better, become great again.

After the disaster called George W. Bush, we thought it could not get worse. We were wrong. George W. Bush was the top lid on a barrel of bottom called Barack. In early 2007 we saw what Hillary2008 and Hillary Clinton did not see. We saw the threat Barack Obama posed.

So, we began to publish in order to convince the campaign and our very high up in Democratic Party politics friends that Obama was a threat. We supported Hillary Clinton in 2008 and were attacked by just about every Big Media outlet, from the left, right, and center. The DailyKooks hated us. All the Barack Obama supporters hated and attacked us for telling the truth about that lowlife from Chicago.

We pointed out that almost nothing was known about Obama and the little that was known was ugly. We talked about Giannopoulos and Rezko and the freezing tenants, but no one cared. The Obama cult of clowns and corruption was intoxicated on that elixir of political depravity, Hopium.

We warned Hillary Clinton in 2007 and onwards that Barack Obama had to be exposed as a liar and corrupt Chicago clown. But Hillary Clinton 2008 was a campaign that thought they would win and needed to tolerate Obama in order to win the general election with a unified Democratic Party.

We supported Hillary Clinton in 2008. We supported the Hillary Clinton that for clarity’s sake declared that she was prepared to “obliterate” Iran. We supported the Hillary Clinton that had a well thought out health care plan. We supported the Hillary Clinton that supported Israel. We supported the Hillary Clinton that supported abortion rights for women and demanded abortion be “safe, legal, and RARE”. We supported the Hillary Clinton that fought for what she believed was right and did not give up.

Commenter Wbboei loves to quote Tallyrand on the restoration of the Bourbon kings in France, “they had learned nothing and forgotten nothing”. Same with Hillary.

As in 2008 when she did not attack Barack Obama with the ferocity required so that she would win the general election with a unified Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton in 2016 learned nothing. Hillary2016 handled socialist kook Bernie Sanders as a doddering grandpa she would tolerate so the unified Democrats would glide to victory with her at the prow of the Titanic.

That was the least of her unlearned lessons. After the treachery of Barack Obama and her fellow Democrats in 2008, Hillary Clinton in 2016 welcomed all the men with blood drenched knives from 2008 into her latest venture. We warned Hillary to no avail. Some of our readers were offended when we asked the question that needed to be asked in October of 2014: Is Hillary Clinton Stupid? Or Sabotaged? The answer in retrospect is that Hillary stupidly sabotaged herself.

Hillary in 2016 hired Obama loyalists for her campaign. These Obama loyalists cared more for Obama than Hillary. At times it appeared that Hillary cared more for Obama than for Hillary. Hillary Clinton, despite our warnings, increasingly turned herself into a human shield for Barack Obama.

ObamaCare was hated by the public in every poll. Bill Clinton called ObamaCare “crazy”. Obama shield Hillary Clinton defended ObamaCare. Hillary did not say, “ObamaCare is a mess, we need to replace and repeal it. I know how to do it. We’ve seen how government cannot run our health care system well so we must rethink all our assumptions and come up with a better plan. I will come up with a better plan than the one I had in 2008 now that we have seen the horrible job government has done with health care. We must be guided by the facts and our experiences. I will repeal and replace ObamaCare.” Someone else, with a winning message, said what Hillary should have said. He won.

The new technologies in health care, especially sonograms, should have caused Hillary Clinton to repeat “safe, legal, and RARE” in regards to abortion. Instead Hillary Clinton became an abortion absolutist for abortion on demand and no time limit on the procedure, not even minutes before child birth. It was an untenable position. Why not face reality and declare that the viability tests of Roe v. Wade had to be respected and maybe even restructured with less time available to abort. It took a former pro-choice New Yorker to voice the overwhelming public opinion and attack “partial birth abortion”. After the Gosnell horrors were revealed, a smart pro-choice candidate should have learned a more centrist path on this issue.

A woman candidate should have spoken out on the horrors of female genital mutilation even if it offended Muslims. Hillary stayed quiet.

On Israel and Iran, Hillary Clinton applauded filthy Obama attacks on Israel and a horrible nuclear agreement with Iran. Donald J. Trump stole the old “obliterate” posture against Iran once voiced by Hillary Clinton.

In 2016 we endorsed Donald J. Trump and denounced Hillary Clinton:

Donald J. Trump all this year has said what needs to be said. Donald J. Trump has said it all fearlessly. Donald J. Trump is a leader.

On education and Common Core, Donald J. Trump wants to abolish Common Core while Hillary Clinton supports the Common Core abomination.

On trade policy and TPP in particular Donald J. Trump is entirely correct and we simply do not believe Hillary Clinton. Indeed, to our surprise Donald J. Trump has never mentioned Austen Goolsbee and the “fix NAFTA” lies told in 2008 by Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton is engaged in the same Austen Goolsbee type lies about TPP.

On Jobs, Jobs, Jobs, the man to trust is Donald J. Trump in large part because of his positions on NAFTA, TPP, and illegal immigration.

While Hillary Clinton ends her campaign with sick calls for “an intervention” to stop Donald J. Trump supporters from voting for him, Trump has followed our advice and on the first day of November staged an all out substantive attack on ObamaCare. In the closing days of the 2016 campaign Hillary Clinton is the undisputed candidate of the ruling class status quo engaged in substance-less personal attacks against a foe who grows stronger every day. In the closing days of the 2016 campaign there is no doubt that Donald J. Trump is the candidate of change and of substance. [snip]

The policies in this election boil down to one word: CHANGE!

This election as we have repeatedly written is a CHANGE election. The candidate of change will win and will deserve to win. The candidate of change is Donald J. Trump.

In 2007 we began to publish and we named our website “Hillary Is 44”. It wasn’t her age, “44” referred to our hope that Hillary Clinton would become the 44th president of the United States.

After the 2008 election cycle some thought we should change our name because Barack Obama occupied the office as the 44th president of the United States. We persevered with our Hillary Is 44 name because, we cleverly argued, Grover Cleveland was elected twice to nonconsecutive terms which meant that the next president after Barack Obama would become the 44th person to take the oath of office which meant Hillary Clinton could still be “44”. It was a “Clintonian” clever devise on our part.

Now that the 2016 election cycle is almost over, our name which began with such high hopes has taken on another meaning. Hillary Clinton is become the Obama Third Term if she is elected. Hillary Clinton is running as the Obama Third Term. To us it is as if Hillary Clinton indeed is now 44. “Hillary Is 44” is now an epithet.

The United States cannot survive an Obama Third Term. We cannot survive more debt, more deficits, more war, more gangster government, more government control of the economy, more politically correct totalitarian government, more identity politics which insults our humanity and individuality, more abuse by the IRS against political opponents, more government control of health care, more lies piled upon lies by high officials protected by the “Department of Justice”. We do not want an Obama Third Term under any guise.

We let the facts lead us to our conclusions. We did not let our conclusions lead us to our facts.

The facts are that Hillary Clinton, as a political tactic or in an honest conversion, became the Obama third term. We warned against that. We warned that 2016 was to be a “CHANGE” election, years before Hillary2016 came into existence. Instead of CHANGE, Hillary chose “status quo”. It killed her.

Donald J. Trump became the candidate of change. Trump savaged, with the joy of a child lasciviously licking an ice cream cone in August, all that Obama implemented. Hillary? Hillary mumbled about something about saving something about mumble, mumble, that added up to a dog chewing on it’s own vomit. It was disgusting.

To increased agitation by some of our readers, we heightened our attacks against Hillary2016. We called Hillary2016 the “dumbest campaign ever”:

But overall, Hillary2016 takes home the prize for klutzes and clods. [snip]

Bernie Sanders’ “A Future To Believe In” is a variation of Obama’s “Change You Can Believe In”. It’s an attack against Hillary and her credibility. But don’t tell Hillary2016 that. They’re liable to hurt their wittle heads. The Sanders’ campaign has many Obama aides as does the Hillary campaign. But somehow Hillary2016 does not understand that the assault on her is an attack on her credibility, honesty, trustworthiness. Hillary Clinton blathers on about this plan and that plan and “I will do this” and “I will do that” but few believe her because, well, Hillary is not “change you can believe in” or represents “a future to believe in”. The attacks on Hillary Clinton are personal and she responds with policy. Have you ever seen anything so stupid? It’s 2008 all over again, only dumber because we’ve seen this before.

By September 2016, the “dumbest campaign ever” hit new lows:

Has there ever been a political campaign dumber than Hillary2016? No. Hillary2016 is the dumbest campaign ever. [snip]

Some campaigns stumble due to unexpected events, unmet expectations, lack of money or even some plain ol’ circumstances beyond control. But Hillary2016 is plain ol’ stupid. [snip]

From before its inception and since we have written about two particularly stupid assumptions Hillary Clinton stupidly accepted. Stupidity #1: the necessity to hire campaign operatives for Hillary2016 more interested in protecting Barack Obama than helping Hillary Clinton. Stupidity #2: acceptance by Hillary Clinton of the pro-Obama hires explanation for why she lost in 2008.

The pro-Obama Praetorian Guard infesting Hillary2016 convinced Hillary Clinton that her big problem in 2008 was she kept on changing strategies and tactics instead of sticking with the political plan outlined by her campaign when it began. This is an entirely stupid lie. Hillary was defeated in 2008 in large part because Big Media protected Barack Obama no matter what Obama did, and attacked every Obama opponent as racist no matter how valid and non-racist the attack was. Hillary Clinton did not lose in 2008 because she changed her strategy when circumstances changed. If anything Hillary Clinton should have been swifter to change and much much more “nuclear” in her attacks on the corrupt Chicago crony Barack Obama.

That rewritten history lie by Barack Obama operatives infesting Hillary2016 has negative dramatic impact on Hillary2016. [snip]

Donald J. Trump is the one in total control of this presidential race and Donald J. Trump is the one who not only sets the agenda but also the narrative and all the cul-de-sacs of that narrative.

Hillary2016 and Hillary Clinton are irredeemably stupid if they think the “I am the responsible, experienced, and most qualified candidate” strategy will win the White House in 2016. It didn’t in 2008 when Hillary Clinton faced a fey legislator without accomplishments other than self-promotion. Hillary Clinton’s “experienced” strategy failed in 2008 and it will fail in 2016. But don’t tell any high level Hillary Clinton operative that because they will enter a psychotic state of denial. [snip]

Contrary to all our repeated warnings and advice Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 chose a stupid strategy. We warned that 2016 would be a change election. The “change” candidate would win. The “stay the course” candidate will lose. Hillary Clinton chose to follow the Obama Praetorian Guard advice, and “stay the course” became the Hillary2016 strategy. This has led to catastrophe. [snip]

Can any of this be documented for the numbskulls at Hillary2016? Yeah. We wrote in 2013 this was a change election and the candidate of change would win. From Egypt to ObamaCare we wrote it was the candidate of change that would win.

The white working class should have been the bedrock of the Hillary2016 campaign. But Hillary Clinton abandoned the white working class so the white working class went to Donald J. Trump. Now the black vote is walking away too.

The black vote had to come out in Obama sized numbers for Hillary Clinton and in the election overall. But the black vote is slipping away from Hillary2016. [snip]

Hillary2016 is the dumbest campaign organization ever. [snip]

A smart campaign would have seen this disaster coming. A smart campaign could correct it’s stupid moves. A smart campaign would rethink it’s strategy and tactics. A smart campaign would see disaster coming. Hillary Clinton and Hillary2016 won’t know what hit them.

We could quote hundreds of thousands of words we have written over the years that have been deadly on target. But we won’t. We assure you, we are as tired of writing these punishments as much as Cassandra loathed her accurate prophesies which were also not listened to.

But we mention our Cassandra style prophesies because there is a new book about Hillary2016 published this week. The new book confirms the utter stupidity of Hillary2016:

Hillary ran the worst presidential campaign ever

So guess what? In the last weeks before the election, the Hillary Clinton campaign did no polling. No. Polling. Whatsoever. Oh, it had data. Lots and lots of data. Analytics, even. Data analytics! But it had no independent information on the overall field of battle in states like Florida, Michigan, Virginia, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.

So when the election began to turn Donald Trump’s way, the Clinton campaign had no idea.

This is one of the thousand revelations in “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” the new book by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes that, for political junkies, redefines the word “juicy” for our time.

Campaign honcho Robby Mook “was worried about overspending . . . so he declined to use pollsters to track voter preferences in the final three weeks of the campaign.” Mook had learned from his time on the Obama 2012 campaign, Allen and Parnes write, that “old-school polling should be used for testing messages and gauging the sentiments of the electorate and that analytics were just as good for tracking which candidate was ahead and by how much in each state.

Guess not.

Allen and Parnes report that the Republican National Committee did know — but just couldn’t accept it. The RNC didn’t brief reporters on early November polling data it had developed in Michigan and Pennsylvania “because the upticks there were so rosy that party officials didn’t believe their own data.”

The day after the election, Hillary asked Mook “which decisions had been misguided, where they had erred in strategy and tactics. ‘Our data was wrong,’ he said . . . ‘OK,’ she replied.” [snip]

Hillary’s dead-end defenders and those who want a Satan-ex-machina explanation for the November result can point to FBI Director James Comey’s stop-and-start-and-stop email investigation or Russian meddling. But “Shattered” should shatter any illusions that the Hillary election machine would have run smoothly or successfully in their absence. The campaign was a disaster from the get-go.

Hillary2016 was the dumbest campaign ever, as we wrote at the time, and as many now write in retrospect.

Donald J. Trump won for many reasons. One big reason for the victory is Trump’s management style so mocked by Big Media and Obama Dimocrats. This is a harsh truth for Obama Dimocrats and Trump haters, but we, latter day Cassandra, have spoken.

Today, wrapped up in full Cassandra garb, we speak prophesy again. At some point, Barack Obama and his lies will all be exposed. Already we see investigations into Obama’s corruption of intelligence agencies to spy on Donald J. Trump and President-Elect Donald J. Trump. But we mean much much more. Our prophesy relates to all the many articles we wrote about Barack Obama and his crooked henchmen back in the 2007/2008 election cycle. All that stuff, Rezko, school grades, the freezing tenants, all that stuff at some point will emerge. Some of the Obama dirt will emerge sooner rather than later:

Think You Know Everything About Obama? Guess Again, Says David Garrow

The Pulitzer-winning biographer is about to dump hundreds of pages of Obama on us next month. And his version of young Barry’s life doesn’t track precisely with the one we know. [snip]

For more than 8 eight years, the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian has been toiling away at what will be the most comprehensive biography ever published on Obama’s life when it comes out on May 9. [snip]

“This covers everything from when his father leaves Kenya in the late 1950s, really up through 2016, though the book primarily focuses on the period up through 2007.”

Despite Obama being in the public eye for more than a decade, Garrow chuckles at the idea that there is little of significance left to learn about the former president.

“I think that people irrespective of their political views or partisan identification will be astonished—I cannot say that too strongly—will be profoundly astonished by how much important substance of Barack Obama’s life has not previously been known,” Garrow said.

Indeed, Garrow is extremely critical of what he sees as the shallowness of the media’s coverage of Obama’s history.

“What most disappointed me back in the context of 2008 was how little interest U.S. journalists of all stripes took in the eight years that Barack spent in Springfield, Illinois, in the state legislature,” Garrow said. “There is not even, as we sit here today, a good magazine article out there about Barack’s time in the Illinois state legislature.” [snip]

“Barack and his closest friend in the early 1990s, when they were in law school, wrote several hundred pages of a proposed book manuscript that was never published,” Garrow said. “Particularly the 140 pages or so of that manuscript that are about race give significant insight into Barack’s thinking, you know, when he was leaving law school, about to enter into public life in Illinois.”

Asked whether any of the revelations in his book could have derailed Obama’s candidacy had they come out in 2008, Garrow said quite possibly.

Had some Republican opposition researcher come up with” the book manuscript he wrote in law school, Garrow said, “there are multiple things that could have been used to Guinier him,” referring to how Republicans used controversial comments made in law review articles to derail President Bill Clinton’s nomination of Lani Guiner for assistant attorney general for civil rights in 1993.

There are other examples,” Garrow added. “I think even back in 2008, 2009, from the very get-go, I was surprised at people’s willingness to assume that Barack’s memoir, Dreams From My Father, was without question historically reliable.

“I thought from the beginning that that was probably too charitable a presumption,” he went on, hinting that his book will pick apart claims made in Obama’s highly praised post-law school memoir.

Garrow has met several times with President Barack Obama to discuss the book, though most of what went on in those conversations, he says, is off the record. Nonetheless, Garrow admits Obama “very strongly” disagrees with some of the claims he makes in the book.

“What I would fairly say, and we see this again very much in the present day, is that when one becomes president of the United States, it’s not uncommon for that person to think that their memory, their version of events, inescapably trumps all other people’s versions,” he explained.

But Garrow has done his homework. “I, all told, did more than 1,000 interviews for this,” Garrow said, noting the book is nearly 1,500 pages long. “It’s well over more than 200 pages of end notes,” Garrow pointed out. “The index, which was what I most recently had to sign off on, is 68 pages.”

Garrow is probably too sympathetic to Barack Obama to really unload on Barack. Garrow has written books on Martin Luther King, Jr. and the civil rights movement of the 1960s so it is likely he will hold back on calling scum “scum”. But this will be the first book that begins the search at the bottom of the barrel.

There will be more books and more revelations about Barack Obama and the books and revelations will be released before the 2020 elections and maybe Barack Obama will be off vacation by then. An avid reader for all these books will be one, President Donald J. Trump. And President Donald J. Trump will let us all know exactly who Obama is, even more than he has already. We will enjoy President Trump as he enjoys his reading.

That’s the other reason President Trump won. He is so young and happy. Hillary Clinton on the other hand probably lost in 2016 because she was too old.

We don’t mean “old” in years. We mean “old” as we wrote about in 2014’s The Shield Maiden Of Chappaqua

Donald J. Trump, older in years than Hillary Clinton romped across the country in a perfect representation of what Democrats once called themselves, “happy warriors”. The “politics of joy”.
Hillary Clinton on the other hand, younger in years than Donald J. Trump, became a shield maiden:

Aragorn: You have some skill with a blade.
Eowyn: The women of this country learned long ago, those without swords can still die upon them. I fear neither death nor pain.
Aragorn: What do you fear, my lady?
Eowyn: A cage. To stay behind bars until use and old age accept them and all chance of valor has gone beyond recall or desire.
Aragorn: You are a daughter of kings, a shield maiden of Rohan. I do not think that will be your fate.



Unlike Bill Clinton who fought his party and the left and dragged both to the center and victory, Hillary Clinton clipped her wings and stayed inside those gilded bars. Then use and old age led her to accept the cage. Instead of using her skill, she hid behind her privilege. Then failure took her.

Donald J. Trump, older in years than Hillary, was a happy warrior. He fought with valor against his own party and everyone else. Trump won. Trump deserved to win.

Ten years after we began to publish, we are at peace.

#MOAB “The Mother Of All Bombs”: The #TrumpTrain Big Wheels Roll Bigly

President Trump is not alone.

President Trump is not without resources.

On Thursday President Trump dropped a MOAB bomb, the biggest bomb that is not nuclear, on tunnel systems in Afghanistan. The #MOAB message hit hardest in Iran, North Korea, and Syria. Wanna play in tunnels boys? You are digging your own grave.



The old scripture Moab was the son of Lot, after the Almighty destroyed the cities of the plain, Sodom and Gomorrah. Hint, hint, ladies and gents.

As discussed in our comments section, North Korea will probably blow up on Saturday, April 15. The glorious “Day of the Sun” will likely be the glorious “Day of the Death of the Son“.

The Trump Doctrine is in full force and effect.


The Trump Doctrine

President Trump is not Barack Hussein Obama. Obama was a lead-from-my-behind asshole. Obama let the problems fester, profit, and proliferate. For eight years the cancers grew. Surgeon Trump will remove the problems.

It is a lot of problems President Trump inherited. Fortunately President Trump is not alone.

* * * * * *

Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley was an odd anti-Trump choice for many when she was chosen by President Trump. But damn, girlfriend has been kicking ass at the U.N.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is a bit of an imp, we think Irish Leprechaun every time he smiles. Damn, that good ol’ boy recused himself from the Russia distraction nonsense and is now full tilt boogie on immigration and all else under his jurisdiction that matters.

Office of Management and the Budget’s Mike Mulvaney is adding it all up. He’s taking the numbers, dividing them, and most of all doing lots of subtraction. Mike less-is-more-vaney.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, wow, well he… um… and uh, yeah, and well he’s… um… done… um… well he truly has… um… Well, something is just not right with that boy.

Secretary of Urban Development and Housing Ben Carson! The once “Gentle Ben” has grown claws and is threatening some massive growling, if only those damn elevators would work.

Secretary of Energy Rick Perry? That Texan is writing letters. They’re “Dear John” letters. Letters that break little hearts. Secretary Perry is breaking little hearts, bless his heart.

Secretary of State Tillerson? Damn that T-Rex is Jurassic Park come alive chowing down on Big Media, Russians, Syria, North Korea. T-Rex can be accused of theft. He stole President Trump’s flag!

Or maybe just borrowed it.

Or maybe President Trump gave everyone who works for Trump and us a replica of his flag.

* * * * * *

What are President Trump’s appointments doing? Take a squint.

Mike Mulvaney is busy:

Agency heads will receive a 14-page memorandum outlining changes. The memo, which replaces the federal hiring ban Trump enacted in January, outlines cuts based on Trump’s “skinny” budget, released last month. The budget proposal called for deep cuts to domestic programs and an increase in military spending.

The memo tells agencies to “begin taking immediate actions to achieve near-term workforce reductions.” It also instructs agencies to develop by June 30 a plan to “maximize employee performance” — i.e., take steps to reward employees deemed effective while working to improve or dismiss weak performers. The memo also calls for delivery by September of an agency reform plan to shrink personnel to accommodate long term budget reductions outlined in the skinny budget.

Speaking to reporters, budget chief Mick Mulvaney said the end result will likely take effect in about 11 months. The executive branch will be dramatically different, Mulvaney said, with agencies operating more like private businesses. Mulvaney downplayed the cuts, saying the focus was on making agencies more efficient, not just smaller.

Really what you’re talking about doing is restructuring Washington, D.C.,” Mulvaney said. “That is how you drain the swamp.”

“At the end of the day,” Mulvaney added, “this leads to a government that is dramatically more accountable, dramatically more efficient, and dramatically more effective at following through on the promises that the president made during the campaign.”

The White House’s latest instructions to the agencies would appear to bear the fingerprints of chief strategist Steve Bannon, who pledged himself publicly to “deconstruction of the administrative state.”

Less is more. Mulvaney will remove “programs that are duplicative, non-essential to the agency’s mission, or are already carried out in some form by state and local government.” That’s “Don’t F with Me” in math. “He pointed out that there are 43 different workforce training programs across 13 different agencies, and that was a case of “if everybody is responsible, nobody is responsible” and of hereditary structure that needs to change.” Numbers matter, budgets matter.

Jeff Sessions gave a speech at the southern border this week.



It’s Trump time, not weak Obama sleepy-time.

Why does Attorney General Jeff Sessions give such a tough Trumpy speech? Pew Research provides a hint:

Half (50%) of the 165,265 total arrests made by the federal government in fiscal 2014 – the most recent year for which statistics are available – were for immigration-related offenses, such as crossing the border illegally or smuggling others into the United States. A decade earlier, immigration-related offenses accounted for 28% of all federal arrests.

At the same time, arrests for drug crimes fell from 23% of the total in 2004 to 14% in 2014. Those for supervision violations, such as probation or parole infractions, fell from 17% to 14%. Arrests for property crimes, including fraud and embezzlement, declined from 11% to 8%. And arrests for weapon offenses, such as possession of an unregistered firearm, fell from 7% to 4%.

Illegal immigration and associated crimes committed by that population are a cancer on the country. Arrests of illegals cut down the resources that can be deployed to stop other crimes. The answer is not to stop arresting illegals and devote resources elsewhere. The answer is to stop the massive influx of illegal immigration then tackle other crimes once you have established the principle of “rule of law”.

Notice those numbers come from the Obama weakness era. “In 2014, 61% of all federal arrests involved non-U.S. citizens”. Back then no matter how many arrests of illegal immigrants took place, millions more illegals came in to replace those removed. Stopping illegal immigration is the nexus of all President Trump policies. These numbers don’t include state and local government arrests of illegal aliens committing more crimes in this country. You have to stop the bleeding before healing can begin. Doctor Jeff Sessions is on the job.

Secretary of Energy Rick Perry’s “Dear John” letters:

Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said the U.S. “is in the process of reviewing many of its policies and reserves its position on this issue, which will be communicated at a future date,” Italy’s industry and energy minister Carlo Calenda said in a statement.

Calenda said other G7 members “reaffirmed their commitment towards the implementation of the Paris Agreement to effectively limit the increase in global temperature well below 2°C above pre-industrial level.”

The Trump administration would not sign onto a statement mentioning Paris, since the president is still deciding whether or not to keep his campaign pledge. Perry also wanted the G7 to include support for coal and natural gas in its statement.

“Therefore, we believe it is wise for countries to use and pursue highly efficient energy resources,” Perry said in a statement after his meeting in Rome with energy ministers from Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the European Union.

Perry specifically pushed for a commitment to “[h]igh efficiency, low-emission coal and natural gas with adequate financing from multi-lateral development banks and private sector investment.”

Perry also advocated for “[a]dvanced civil-nuclear technologies that are proliferation resistant, produce little to no waste and ensure safety.”

“Innovation is also a top priority for the Trump Administration,” Perry said. “We are committed to developing, deploying and commercializing breakthrough technologies and developing the necessary policies that will help renewables become competitive with traditional sources of energy.”

Italy, which hosted this year’s G7 meeting, pushed to include the Paris agreement in a policy statement member countries typically sign after these meetings end. No statement was signed since Perry couldn’t commit to backing Paris.

The Paris agreement went into effect in 2016, committing United Nations members to reduce greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global warming. President Barack Obama committed the U.S. to cut emissions 26 to 28 percent by 2025.

Trump promised to withdraw from the Paris agreement on the campaign trail, and the president has already issued executive orders to dismantle the regulatory regime Obama relied on to meet his Paris pledge.

The White house is split on whether or not to keep Trump’s campaign pledge. On one side, Ivanka Trump, White House aide Jared Kushner and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson support remaining in Paris.
White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt oppose the Paris agreement.

Secretary “first neurosurgeon” Ben Carson of the Department of Housing and Urban Development? He might get stuck in elevators, but he knows where he is going:

Ben Carson Finds $500 Billion (Billion!) In Errors During Audit Of Obama HUD

Ben Carson was the first neurosurgeon to successfully separate conjoined twins, so, he’s kind of a super hero.

But apparently, he’s also not a bad accountant.

President Trump picked Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, whose budget grew by leaps and bounds under Barack Obama.

In one of his first acts as HUD Secretary, Carson ordered an audit of the agency. What he found was staggering: $520 billion in bookkeeping errors.

The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were $516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively,” the auditors wrote.

But there were plenty of other problems, too.

There were several other unresolved audit matters, which restricted our ability to obtain sufficient, appropriate evidence to express an opinion. These unresolved audit matters relate to (1) the Office of General Counsel’s refusal to sign the management representation letter, (2) HUD’s improper use of cumulative and first-in, first-out budgetary accounting methods of disbursing community planning and development program funds, (3) the $4.2 billion in nonpooled loan assets from Ginnie Mae’s stand-alone financial statements that we could not audit due to inadequate support, (4) the improper accounting for certain HUD assets and liabilities, and (5) material differences between HUD’s subledger and general ledger accounts. This audit report contains 11 material weaknesses, 7 significant deficiencies, and 5 instances of noncompliance with applicable laws and regulations. [snip]

So, look for Carson to get out his scalpel and start operating. Or perhaps he’ll use a machete.

Turns out “Gentle Ben” is a Grizzly.

Speaking of Grizzly, as is Mama Grizzly, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley:



On Syria, Israel, Russia, and every other issue, Nikki Haley is “taking names”. She is schlonging the bad boys. Big Media doesn’t like it. Screw Big Media.

Screwing Big Media appears to be the joy of Secretary of State T-Rex Tillerson. T-Rex refuses to take Big Media along with him on his world-wide T-Rexing. Big Media can get their own travel arrangements made is the message from T-Rex. T-Rex has work to do and babysitting the travel of Big Media blowhards is not a job for a mighty T-Rex.

Big Media is a mosquito to T-Rex. A bigger gnat is Russian President Vladimir Putin. Anyone here remember when we declared Vladimir Putin to be a strong and powerful leader? We saw what Putin was up to in Syria and we saw the threat he posed to the world because it is in Russia’s interest to drive up the cost of oil. As we wrote, Putin has his own “operation Grand Slam” just like Goldfinger. That is Russia’s ultimate aim. Russia’s Vladimir Putin is a smart powerful guy who knows that because of instability in the middle east (hey, something could happen to those oil fields in Saudi Arabia if some country lobbed a bunch of missiles to set the whole place on fire) Russia is in position to profit handsomely.

Vladimir Putin indeed was, as we declared, a strong powerful leader. But that is like saying Woody Allen is a strong powerful man – in a roomful of pre-schoolers. Vladimir Putin was a strong powerful leader when the opposition was weak fey simpering apologist America-hating “managed decline” Barack Obama. Now Vladimir Putin is in opposition to President Donald J. Trump and Secretary of Defense General “Mad-dog” Mattis, and Secretary of State T-Rex Tillerson. Up against these is like Woody Allen up against Seal Team Six. All of a sudden you’re not so strong and powerful anymore.

In Moscow a few days ago, President Putin pretended his was not going to meet with his once friend T-Rex Tillerson. Obama Dimocrats opposed the confirmation of T-Rex because they said he was too close to Russian President Putin. But in Moscow, President Putin played games that he would not meet with President Trump’s emissary. In the end President Putin met with T-Rex for hours.



The Putin gamesmanship would have worked if he was up against weak, fey, simpering, lead-from-presenting-his-behind Barack Obama. But against T-Rex Trump, President Putin appeared to be old and weak, playing games long retired. The result of all the games is that T-Rex Trump took all the winnings.

Vladimir Putin is isolated because of his not credible position on the Syria issue. Putin looks either a liar or a fool. He knows it now. China abstained on the U.N. vote and did not veto as would usually be expected. China is also making some very powerful threats against North Korea, as our comments section has noted. Putin against Obama was a towering figure. Putin against T-Rex is a gnat. Putin against Trump is a mosquito.

To all that display of military and diplomatic might, President Trump adds his most powerful display of force. President Trump understands that the most important component of Make America Great Again is economic. To that end President Trump commands Mulvaney, Perry, Sessions, Carson, and even Paul Ryan (something is just not right with that boy) to make America an economic powerhouse.

On Paul Ryan (something is just not right with that boy), President Trump and his allies might have to drop a MOAB bomb on his head to get some work done from Paul Ryan (something is just not right with that boy). Obama Dimocrats too need a MOAB to drop on their heads and President Trump just might do that:

Nearly three weeks after Republican infighting sank an overhaul of the Affordable Care Act, President Donald Trump dug back into the battle on Wednesday, threatening to withhold payments to insurers to force Democrats to the negotiating table.

In an interview in the Oval Office, Mr. Trump said the White House may lack authority to make the payments established under his predecessor to reduce copayments and deductibles for some of the poorest customers who buy insurance under the 2010 Affordable Care Act. Cutting off the payments could trigger turmoil in insurance markets.

“I don’t want people to get hurt,” Mr. Trump said. “What I think should happen—and will happen—is the Democrats will start calling me and negotiating.”…

We’ve written about that before so we won’t beat a dead horse today. But something is not right with that Paul Ryan boy and the Obama Dimocrats need a house to fall on their heads. It might not be a house that falls on their heads. It might be a political MOAB.

As President Trump exercises his muscles across the sea, his domestic muscles grow that much stronger. MOAB is coming.

Bombs away!

#TheResistance Crumbles: #SCOTUS Justice Gorsuch Plus 4 More

This is the story of three missiles. One missile is surrounded by 58 other Tomahawk missiles that struck at Syria. Another missile is the heat seeking missile Obama Dimocrats fired at President Trump. This second missile has gone rogue, changed target, and instead of chasing President Trump is now fixed upon Barack Obama’s leading-from-his-behind ass and about to penetrate that well used tunnel.

The third missile? Gorsuch. Neil Gorsuch. Associate Justice to the Supreme Court Neil Gorsuch. That’s the missile with the biggest payload. This multiple warhead missile will keep destroying its targets for twenty, thirty, or forty years.

As we do, President Donald J. Trump expects to appoint more missiles to the high court. As we do, President Donald J. Trump believes there will be four more:

President Trump believes that he will have the opportunity to pack the Supreme Court with five judges, making him only the seventh president to appoint a majority and potentially cementing his legacy and that of the conservative court well past 2055.

Today the Scalia replacement. Probably in June the Anthony Kennedy replacement. The relatively young Clarence Thomas at 71 will resign too and President Trump will appoint a much younger version.
We suspect Stephen Breyer will recognize the ceaseless 5-4 victories will not validate his continued presence away from retirement. After that, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, will succumb to a life away from the court too.

At today’s ceremony at the White House, President Trump slathered Justice Anthony Kennedy with so much praise it reminded us of that line from The Women. As chimes play in “Black’s Fifth Avenue” department store one woman asks “What’s that?” The other woman responds “The bums rush in melody dear.”



Do you hear those chimes sing Justice Anthony Kennedy?

President Donald J. Trump is ready for the Kennedy retirement. Politico has the details:

After Donald Trump wrapped up his first speech to Congress and worked his way through the crowd, he lingered on his handshake with Anthony Kennedy, the 80-year-old Supreme Court justice.

The boom mics picked up their seemingly private conversation.

Say hello to your boy,” Trump said, “Special guy.” “Your kids have been very nice to him,” Kennedy replied. “Well,” Trump said, “they love him, and they love him in New York.”

While the White House is focused this week on shepherding Trump’s first Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, through the Senate confirmation process, the president and his team are obsessed with the next possible vacancy. [snip]

One back channel is the fact that Kennedy’s son, Justin, knows Donald Trump Jr. through New York real estate circles. Another is through Kennedy’s other son, Gregory, and Trump’s Silicon Valley adviser Peter Thiel. They went to Stanford Law School together and served as president of the Federalist Society in back-to-back years, according to school records. More recently, Kennedy’s firm, Disruptive Technology Advisers, has worked with Thiel’s company Palantir Technologies.

In fact, during the early months of the Trump administration, Gregory Kennedy has worked at NASA as a senior financial adviser as part of the so-called “beachhead” team. Both Kennedy boys were spotted at the White House last month for the administration’s St. Patrick’s Day celebration (Justice Kennedy is Irish Catholic). In February, Ivanka Trump attended oral arguments of the Supreme Court with her daughter. She was a guest of Justice Kennedy. [snip]

Those close to Trump’s judicial-selection process stress that they’re not pressuring Kennedy to hang up his robe, only seeking to put him at ease.

Um, “only seeking to put him at ease” is the bum’s rush in melody dear. Those lines of communication from the Trump family and allies should have Chuck Stumbler and his Obama Dimocrats worried sick.

That list of of potential Supreme Court appointments? That’s also a list of potential President Trump appointments to the Appellate Circuit. Many of those soon to be announced appointments are undergoing F.B.I. background checks. Neil Gorsuch is not the sole move on the judicial chessboard by President Trump. And, after Neil Gorsuch, it all becomes easier for President Trump which is why we understood the Obama Dimocrats would filibuster – even though that was a suicide move.

Because of the extreme foolishness of #TheResistance Obama Dimocrats, which we have laughed about for a while now, even CNN recognizes that Obama Dimocrats are as fertile as dildos without batteries:

Democrats have zero leverage after Gorsuch [snip]

The exercise of the “nuclear option” returns Senate procedures to what they were 15 years ago. The filibuster was simply not employed for partisan purposes against a nominee who had majority support before Harry Reid started filibustering George W. Bush’s lower-court nominees in 2003. (Infamously, the Senate denied Miguel Estrada an up-or-down vote seven times to prevent Bush from later having the opportunity to elevate the first Hispanic justice.) Reid used the “nuclear option” to eliminate that sort of filibuster a decade later, so perhaps this week’s action should be called “thermonuclear.” [snip]

The next nominee. By filibustering the milquetoast Gorsuch despite the high probability and repeatedly expressed intention of the Republicans to go nuclear, the Democrats have destroyed any leverage they had over the next nominee. Should there be another vacancy under President Trump while the GOP controls the Senate, there will be zero incentive for the President to moderate his choice. It’s not at all clear that Republican senators such as Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and other “institutionalists” would’ve gone along with a “nuclear option” to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a nominee more controversial than Gorsuch. But now they won’t face that dilemma.

Until President Donald J. Trump, Republicans have faced an ugly dilemma with appointments to the Supreme Court:

Whoever said you can’t win by picking unwinnable battles never said it to Chuck Schumer. Democrats opted to fight the good fight, which tends to undermine future attempts to fight the winning fight. This represents a role-reversal of sorts for Democrats and Republicans. Until recently, conservative legislators played Charlie Brown kicking the football to the role of Lucy pulling it away played by Republican presidents, whose stealth nominees invariably revealed themselves as liberals once on the court.

Democrats nominated just eight of the last 25 justices to the Supreme Court. But because Republican presidents nominated the likes of Earl Warren, William Brennan, Harry Blackmun, John Paul Stevens, and David Souter, liberal majorities ruled the Supreme Court throughout the lifetimes of just about everybody reading this. The phenomenon, captured in the title of Patrick Buchanan’s 1975 book Conservative Votes, Liberal Victories, effectively meant a veto on conservative laws, particularly ones passed at the state level. Jurists nominated by Republicans authored the decisions in Roe v. Wade, Kelo v. New London, National Federation of Independent Businesses v. Sebelius, and so many lesser-known cases whose decisions usurped the rights of states and individuals.

John Stuart Mill didn’t call conservatives “the stupid party” for nothing. But even slow people figure it out, albeit, as their name suggests, more slowly, and conservatives blocked George W. Bush’s suspected stealth pick Harriet Miers and stood firmly in blocking a vote on Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland. [snip]

The payoff for McConnell’s gambit on Garland appears especially generous given the widespread declarations that replacing Antonin Scalia with a consistent liberal vote represented a historic sea change. “The Supreme Court’s Conservative Run Is Over” (Politico), “The Conservative Era of the Supreme Court Is Over” (Los Angeles Times), and “After 45 Years of Conservative Rulings, Here’s What a Liberal Supreme Court Would Do” (Washington Post) read a few of the headlines. What a difference a year makes!

The confirmation of Neil Gorsuch via the destruction of the filibuster is a major immediate and long term victory for President Trump. “Democrats nominated just eight of the last 25 justices to the Supreme Court.” But because of obstruction, their nominees were not ideologically committed and soon moved to the left. From now on that won’t happen. And if President Trump appoints 5 young Justices to the high court, the likelihood that Obama Dimocrats will appoint even a single Supreme Court Justice in the next 25 years is de minimus. Thank Barack Obama and the Mistake in ’08.

On April 17, the Supreme Court returns to work and the influence of Justice Gorsuch will be felt on the calendar of the court. And this schedule does not include, yet, President Trump’s “nexus issue” -immigration – on which Justice Gorsuch will have a profound effect.

This Holy Week, with Passover holidays under threat and the slaughter in Egypt of Christians on Palm Sunday and throughout the middle east in our minds, should remind us all that President Trump is on the job and as bad as things are the Republic is in good hands. As busy making America Great Again as he is, President Trump has proven he can play a winning game of chess on multiple boards.

Chess GrandMaster Trump? Even the Trump hating Washington Post is forced to agree with our analysis:

Could it be? Is President Trump on a roll?

I don’t want to jinx anything, but President Trump may be experiencing the best sequence of events since he became president. Just this week, he received bipartisan support for his military strike in Syria, secured Judge Neil Gorsuch’s Senate confirmation to the Supreme Court, had impressive meetings with both King Abdullah II of Jordan and President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi of Egypt, caught a break with the Susan Rice scandal, and it appears he has walked away from a successful encounter with Chinese President Xi Jinping — all without knocking it off the rails with a wayward tweet. And it’s not just me saying that, no less than Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass wrote that this was “arguably [the] best of Donald Trump’s still young presidency, from [a] successful strike in Syria to confirmation of his Supreme Court nominee.” [snip]

McConnell was correct in saying, “Certainly, this is an important day in the history of the Senate and in the Supreme Court.” And if Gorsuch’s confirmation is the only legacy Trump walks away from office with, it will be a great one.

In politics, just like in golf, luck counts. The fact that Trump launched an attack against Syria while his Chinese counterpart was present and able to witness the aftermath in the media was a powerful stroke of good luck for the White House. In case Xi needed any reminding of just how serious Trump may be about taking action in North Korea, the Syria attack couldn’t have been a better example or come at a better time. By all accounts, expectations for their meeting were low. But reports indicate that Trump and Xi had substantive, mostly positive conversations, perhaps leaving the Chinese president with a lot to think about. [snip]

But Trump’s luck didn’t end there. He caught another break with the Rice scandal being revealed when it was. The story has legs, and it’s become a counterweight to the media’s appetite for a Trump-Russia connection. The unmasking fiasco is distracting from the circus show that is the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation, but it won’t peak until Rice testifies under oath. And at that point, who knows which direction the investigation will take? For now, the intensity of the media’s search for a silver bullet in the faux Trump-Russia connection has subsided.

Um, it wasn’t “luck”. President Trump knows who did what to whom on the Rice story. What is happening now is a theatrical lifting of the curtain and a spot light hitting the culprits. President Trump made his own “luck” on Susan Rice.

President Trump also prepared for “luck” on the meeting with President Xi by hiring some tough hombres who have studied China trade policies for a long time. President Trump also sent top emissaries such as Secretary of State Tillerson to South Korea in previous weeks to pave the way for action on North Korea. As President Xi had his entrée served, President Trump knew what was about to happen in Syria. President Trump knew that the main course at dinner was a lesson to President Xi on what to do about North Korea.

North Korea itself was on the menu.

Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and Obama Dimocrats, are about to get a fork stuck in them too.

The Miracle Called President Trump And The Salvation Of Our Republic

Update: Thursday, April 6, 2017 via President Trump can be summarized “during the day he nuked the Senate, at night he bombed Syria“. Yet some dolts don’t see the brilliance and miracle of President Trump.

Let’s quickly answer the question the dolts (Conservative Treehouse as usual does not understand complicated matters and after the Syria attack many commenters began to attack President Trump) don’t get. The dolts stupidly declared “There is ZERO motive for President Bashir Assad to weaponize chemical weapons against his people.” Um, idiots the motive for Assad, and Putin for that matter is the same motive all tin pot dictators always have: They are testing the new American president.

With every new administration come tests from foreign enemies of the United States. Why did Syria’s Assad burn his own people with chemical weapons? Because Assad and the Russians and IRAN wanted to slap President Donald J. Trump in the same way every lowlife in the world enjoyed slapping Barack Obama. Back in April 4, 2009 we wrote about the time Barack Obama was tested by America’s enemies. The dolts at the Treehouse should read our smart analysis to understand how foreign enemies test new presidents and see what smart analysis looks like: World Leaders And North Korea To Barack Obama: “Sucker”. That’s right you dolts, in April 2009 the new Obama administration was tested by North Korea. In April 2017, it is President Donald J. Trump who is tested.

How well did President Trump do on his first major test? It’s a miracle. Check out our comments section to get more details as they come in but first reactions from Big Pink were right on target:

For the record we are not in favor of military involvement in Syria. But this chemical attack was a direct challenge to President Trump to test him and see if he was as weak as Obama.

President Trump has turned lemons into lemonade. President Trump with this attack, which took place during President Xi and Trump at dinner, sends a message to China, North Korea and every adversary:I am not weak Obama. My name is Trump. Donald J. Trump!

Look at what President Trump managed to do with his first international crisis:

(1) He had a peaceful dinner with President Xi of China after he secretly ordered the calibrated attack on Syria. Before President Trump made the public announcement of the attack he politely informed President Xi. The unstated message to President Xi: “I am not Barack Hussein Obama. Tell that to the North Korean freaks you’ve been helping. If you don’t want a massive immigration crisis on your southern border get these North Korean freaks back in the circus and off the streets or I will do the job for you.” China and North Korea get the message and American allies in the region such as Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea, respect the new President of the United States.

(2) Russia’s Vladimir Putin just got schlonged by testicular fortitude Trump. There goes the notion that Trump is Putin’s plant. Iran got schlonged too. You’re not dealing with Barack Hussein Obama – You’re dealing with President Donald J. Trump. Freaks. As to American allies like Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the rest, they too have respect for the new President of the United States and know that unlike Barack Hussein Obama, President Donald J. Trump is the one that does the schlonging and the slapping. The Egyptian President and the Jordanian King both of whom visited President Trump this past week must have especially wide smiles – but not as wide as the grin on Prime Minister Netanyahu.

(3) American allies world-wide, in North and South America, in the European Union, in Asia, Great Britain, everywhere know there is an American President in charge once again that they can rely on. America’s enemies world-wide know there is an American President in charge once again that they must fear and negotiate with out of respect.

(4) President Trump dealt with America’s enemies foreign and domestic. Remember, the toilet known as the U.S. Congress goes on vacation, they call it “recess”, on Friday. What will these useless goofballs do? They can no longer claim that Trump is Putin’s plant. Will they stay on the job to deal with the ramifications of President Trump’s attack on Syria? Or will these useless pieces of baggage go home and leave foreign policy to President Trump? Those that want to stay to demand President Trump do their bidding will have to confront those that want to go on vacation.

If the Congress persists and insists on vacation as their priority, President Trump can make recess appointments. If the Congress goes on vacation President Trump will continue to have a free hand on foreign policy. If the Congress decides to shock us all and stay in Washington to work, President Trump can demand they also work on ObamaCare repeal, the budget that is due and the debt ceiling. President Trump wins and wins.

As we enter the season of miracles, more miracles – via the miraculous President Donald J. Trump.

————————————————–

This week the right, left, and center, can see the amazing miracle called President Trump. It’s not just the obvious things like Gorsuch or the Jerusalem shocker. On election night and the day following the election we declared that the immense vastness of the Trump victory was immeasurable. This week we continue to try to measure the immeasurable.

Consider the Susan Rice scandal. Take a step back from the daily/hourly to-and-fro developments in that scandal which is itself but a part of the Russia nonsense from Obama Dimocrats. Can you see how miraculous this Susan Rice scandal makes the Trump election victory? Can you?

Remember all the many indisputable reasons from Big Media and the political establishment as to why Trump could never win? Remember all the many times it was declared by Big Media and the GOP and Dimocrat political establishments, along with all the economic and educational institutions of power that “it’s over for Trump”? Now add to all that what we have learned from the Susan Rice scandal. The Trump election victory becomes even more incredible, yea “miraculous” than any have previously understood.

TabletMag lays it all out. The TabletMag article was summarized in our comments section, but we recommend a full read to understand the gargantuan beast that opposed Donald J. Trump’s election, inauguration, and eventual presidency:

“At some point, the administration weaponized the NSA’s legitimate monitoring of communications of foreign officials to stay one step ahead of domestic political opponents,” says a pro-Israel political operative who was deeply involved in the day-to-day fight over the Iran Deal. “The NSA’s collections of foreigners became a means of gathering real-time intelligence on Americans engaged in perfectly legitimate political activism—activism, due to the nature of the issue, that naturally involved conversations with foreigners. We began to notice the White House was responding immediately, sometimes within 24 hours, to specific conversations we were having. At first, we thought it was a coincidence being amplified by our own paranoia. After a while, it simply became our working assumption that we were being spied on.”

This is what systematic abuse of foreign-intelligence collection for domestic political purposes looks like: Intelligence collected on Americans, lawmakers, and figures in the pro-Israel community was fed back to the Obama White House as part of its political operations. The administration got the drop on its opponents by using classified information, which it then used to draw up its own game plan to block and freeze those on the other side. And—with the help of certain journalists whose stories (and thus careers) depend on high-level access—terrorize them.

Barack Obama weaponized the intelligence gathering machine on behalf of his Iran terrorist pals. Then Barack Obama used the weaponized intelligence apparatus to target and destroy Donald J. Trump. It’s a miracle that Donald Trump survived and thrived to become President Donald J. Trump.

Fox News in 2015 reported on the Obama corruption of the intelligence apparatus in this country to benefit his Iran terrorist pals:

The sweeping up of conversations between Israeli officials and U.S. lawmakers began in earnest earlier this year, ahead of a March visit to Capitol Hill by Netanyahu to speak out against the developing Iran nuclear deal, and continued through this past September, when the deadline for Congress to block the deal passed.

The Wall Street Journal also reported on the Obama corruption of intelligence gathering for his Watergating of Iran terrorist opponents:

The U.S., pursuing a nuclear arms agreement with Iran at the time, captured communications between Mr. Netanyahu and his aides that inflamed mistrust between the two countries and planted a political minefield at home when Mr. Netanyahu later took his campaign against the deal to Capitol Hill.

The National Security Agency’s targeting of Israeli leaders and officials also swept up the contents of some of their private conversations with U.S. lawmakers and American-Jewish groups. That raised fears—an “Oh-s— moment,” one senior U.S. official said—that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.

The Obama corruption of the government intelligence agencies, whose mission is to protect the Republic from foreign enemies, turned those intelligence agencies into a threat on the Republic. Barack Obama corrupted the intelligence apparatus to attack Israel and defend Iran terrorists. Then Barack Obama turned that vast apparatus against Donald J. Trump.

It is a miracle. Nothing less than a miracle. Donald J. Trump overcame all the insurmountable odds that are somewhat “normal” in a political campaign. Donald J. Trump also overcame all the corrupt insurmountable corruptions of a politicized and weaponized intelligence gathering infrastructure to become President Donald J. Trump. It is nothing less than a miracle.

As the indefatigable Catherine Herridge reports the spying on American citizens associated with Trump was total:

Reports in unmasking controversy were detailed, had info about ‘everyday lives’

The intelligence reports at the center of the Susan Rice unmasking controversy were detailed, and almost resembled a private investigator’s file, according to a Republican congressman familiar with the documents.

This is information about their everyday lives,” Rep. Peter King of New York, a member of the House Intelligence committee said. “Sort of like in a divorce case where lawyers are hired, investigators are hired just to find out what the other person is doing from morning until night and then you try to piece it together later on.” [snip]

Nunes has consistently stated that the files caused him deep concern because the unmasking went beyond the former national security adviser Mike Flynn, and the information was not related to Moscow.

Herridge details how only 20 persons are authorized to approve “unmasking” requests so eventually we will see who it was that helped Susan Rice in her corruptions. Herridge also details how unusual what Susan Rice did is by showing how very rare it is. Herridge makes it clear that the corruption of the intelligence agency started before the presidential election in 2016. Herridge quotes Trey Gowdy of the intelligence committee as saying “It would be nice to know the universe of people who have the power to unmask a U.S. citizen’s name, because that might provide something of a roadmap to investigate who might’ve actually disseminated a masked U.S. citizen’s name.

There is an “extensive government paper trail, that can be audited within the NSA, that shows who requested the unmasking, on what basis, and whether it was granted. This raises more questions about Rice, her motivation and whether it was authorized higher up, offering cover.”

Chicken littles and their ilk, not fit for foxholes in battle, will bemoan and whine about Chairman Devin Nunes recusal today from the Intelligence Committee investigation into Russia and the election. These Chicken Little types always whine that the sky is falling. But Trey Gowdy and his allies are still on the Intelligence Committee. Chairman Nunes now does not have to reveal anything to the Schiff-heads on the Committee. And the fact that Obama Dimocrats took out Chairman Nunes by filing complaints about his handling of classified information with the Ethics Committee will continue the inquiry into the corruptions by Obama and Obama thugs of classified information.

Chicken Little and her ilk of losers will not understand that it does not matter if there is a fight, what matters is that there is a fighter. Fighters win fights whether the fight is sought or comes unbidden. What matters is that President Trump is a fighter:

The Trump administration has escalated its feud with the Obama administration, creating a virtually unprecedented situation in which the current and former U.S. executive branches are openly fighting.

President Trump on Wednesday said Obama-era national security adviser Susan Rice might have committed a crime by requesting the identities of Trump associates who were incidentally swept up in surveillance, though he cited no evidence to back up his claim.

I think it’s going to be the biggest story,” Trump told The New York Times. “It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time.

Gowdy at the Intelligence Committee. Big Pink on the job. President Trump in a fight for the Republic.

This is a fight for the Republic. Ann Althouse makes a smart observation:

I hope Susan Rice was keeping tabs on Trump’s Russia ties.
By Michelle Goldberg at Slate.

I love the way the messaging turns on a dime.

One minute it’s ridiculous to think that the Obama administration was doing surveillance on the Trump campaign. The next minute the Obama administration was doing the right thing if it did surveillance on the Trump campaign.

The Obama Dimocrat messaging has changed. That clues you in on the true impact of the Susan Rice revelations. Before, the Obama Dimocrat claim was that spying on Trump was crazy talk from a deranged President Trump. Now, the Obama Dimocrat claim is that spying on Trump was the necessary and smart thing to do. Winner? President Donald J. Trump the Miraculous savior of the Republic.

Want more miracles? A new Gallup poll, always an unfriendly poll for Trump, makes clear that despite all the attacks on President Trump from Big Media, President Trump has won the battle against Big Media:

Six in 10 in US See Partisan Bias in News Media

62% say news media favors one political party over the other
More believe media favors Democrats than Republicans
Clear majority of Americans say media is “often inaccurate”

In a contentious political landscape, Americans increasingly believe the news media generally favors one political party over the other. Sixty-two percent of U.S. adults say the media has a favorite, up from about 50% in past years. Just 27% now say the media favors neither major party. [snip]

Gallup asked those who perceive political bias in the news media to say which party the news media favors. Almost two-thirds (64%) of those who believe the media favors a political party say it is the Democratic Party. Only about a third as many (22%) believe the media favors Republicans.

Game Over! Miraculous President Donald J. Trump has won the battle against Big Media although Big Media won’t report the news.

Think we exaggerate about the miraculous power of President Donald J. Trump? Remember all that talk about President Donald J. Trump moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and how that would bring on World War III? Remember how recently despite Obama Dimocrat opposition the Trump American ambassador to Israel – who advocates for moving the American embassy to Jerusalem – David Friedman was confirmed which would surely bring on World War III?

Well, David Friedman is not yet the American ambassador to Israel but there is a President Donald J. Trump miracle in Israel now that Iran pal Obama is hiding out in Polynesia. Yeah, Russia is catching up to President Trump:

Russia recognizes west Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated in a surprise announcement on Thursday, obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post. [snip]

No other country in the world recognizes any part of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The statement issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry reads, “We reaffirm our commitment to the UN-approved principles for a Palestinian-Israeli settlement, which include the status of East Jerusalem as the capital of the future Palestinian state. At the same time, we must state that in this context we view West Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

This is a sharp shift in Russian policy, which until now has formally held that Jerusalem should eventually be under a permanent international regime. The statement appears in English on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Russian web site.

While officials in Jerusalem interpreted this to mean that recognition of west Jerusalem as Israel’s capital will only come once east Jerusalem becomes the capital of a Palestinian state, The Jerusalem Post has learned that Moscow intends this recognition to go into effect immediately.

Russia moved to President Trump’s daring position on Israel, before David Friedman could bring on “World War III” doing what Russia has done. Because of Passover holidays and the “weeklong shutdown” in Israel which starts on April 10, Trump’s approved ambassador to Israel won’t be on the job in Israel. Because of protocol decisions by the Israeli government it is likely that David Friedman will be welcomed as the American ambassador to Israel in June. But the miracle, the embassy move reason Obama Dimocrats offered to not confirm David Friedman, has already happened. Jerusalem is now recognized as the capital of Israel by Russia and the United States will soon also confirm the position of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. World War III averted. A President Donald J. Trump miracle.

Why did Russia make this startling declaration? Perhaps this was all a well-timed dance by President Trump to allow Russia to take the credit for a President Trump policy. It could be. But we suspect that it is a President Trump miracle. The miracle in this case is that President Trump’s clear-eyed assessment of the political situation in the world is now accepted by Russia.

Why would Russia wake up? Maybe it is this very underreported story by American Big Media:

At least 14 people were murdered and 50 injured in the blast and horrifying pictures show bodies, blood and wreckage strewn across the carriage of the train blown up between Sennaya Ploshchad and Sadovaya metro stations in Russia’s second city.

Russian citizen Akbarzhon Jalilov, 22, who was born in Kyrgyzstan, has been named by security services as the suspected attacked who also planted a second device hidden in a fire extinguisher that failed to explode. [snip]

Police believe he has close links to radical Islamists.

Jalilov’s home country of Kyrgyzstan, which borders Kazakhstan and China in central Asia, is predominately Muslim and has seen up to 500 citizens travel to Syria to join ISIS. Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were also born there.

Candidate for president Donald J. Trump frequently declared that he thought Russia could be a partner against Muslim terrorists. Russia this week got a taste of Muslim terror from the same source Boston sampled. Quislings in the West, particularly in Germany, don’t want to fight Muslim terrorists:

A decision by the city of Berlin not to illuminate its most famous landmark, the Brandenburg Gate, in the colors of the Russian flag to show solidarity with St Petersburg after an attack has provoked anger, with critics calling it a scandal.

In the past after attacks in other countries, the city has beamed the colors of flags of France, Turkey, Britain and the Netherlands onto the Brandenburg Gate, which divided East and West Berlin in the Cold War. [snip]

While lights at the Eiffel Tower in Paris will be switched off at midnight on Tuesday as a mark of respect for the victims of the St Petersburg attack, other European landmarks have been lit in their usual way.

The head of German broadcaster Deutsche Welle’s Russian service Ingo Mannteufel said the decision belittled victims of the St Petersburg attack at a time when the German government says it values the Russian people even if it disagrees with the Kremlin.

(The West) has a moral and political duty to show solidarity with the victims of terrorism in Russia. That the Brandenburg Gate was not illuminated in the Russian colors was therefore wrong, yes, it is even a scandal,” he wrote.

There are those in the West that want war with Russia. These same forces do everything to appease Muslim terrorists. Every attempt is made to goad President Trump to turn his eyes from Muslim terrorism and onto Russia. Thus far it has not worked.

The Susan Rice scandal and all the Obama Dimocrat perversions of the intelligence apparatus in this country have been geared towards leading President Trump into conflict with Russia. But even in the most totalitarian leftist precincts, warnings are sounded about this soon to fail tactic:

Putin Derangement Syndrome Arrives

Whatever the truth about Trump and Russia, the speculation surrounding it has become a dangerous case of mass hysteria [snip]

For seemingly the 100th time, social media is exploding. This is it! The big reveal! [snip]

One way we recognize a mass hysteria movement is that everyone who doesn’t believe is accused of being in on the plot. This has been going on virtually unrestrained in both political and media circles in recent weeks.

The aforementioned Mensch, a noted loon who thinks Putin murdered Andrew Breitbart but has somehow been put front and center by The Times and HBO’s Real Time, has denounced an extraordinary list of Kremlin plants.

She’s tabbed everyone from Jeff Sessions (“a Russian partisan”) to Rudy Giuliani and former Assistant FBI Director James Kallstrom (“agents of influence”) to Glenn Greenwald (“Russian shill”) to ProPublica and Democracy Now! (also “Russian shills”), to the 15-year-old girl with whom Anthony Weiner sexted (really, she says, a Russian hacker group called “Crackas With Attitudes”) to an unnamed number of FBI agents in the New York field office (“moles”). And that’s just for starters.

Others are doing the same. Eric Boehlert of Media Matters, upon seeing the strange behavior of Republican Intel Committee chair Devin Nunes, asked “what kind of dossier” the Kremlin has on Nunes. [snip]

Even Bernie Sanders has himself been accused of being a Putin plant by Mensch. But even he’s gotten on board of late, asking, “What do the Russians have on Mr. Trump?”

So even people who themselves have been accused of being Russian plants are now accusing people of being Russian plants. As the Russians would say, it’s enough to make your bashka hurt.

The entire article from leftist Matt Taibbi is worth reading to fully understand the crackpot left. At times it is comic as when it describes Senator Mark Warner’s antics which merit a trip to Bellevue insane asylum. But mostly it is a map of leftist lunacy. Even leftist loon Noam Chomsky thinks the entire Russia crackpottery is “a joke”.

Mostly though the Taibbi article is a summary of the miracle that is President Donald J. Trump. How did Donald J. Trump, short of a miracle possibly win the presidential election???

Since 2012 we often declared that all you needed to know was that 2016 would be a “change” election. We predicted a Trump victory on the Friday before the election and put forth our election map – which left open as “too close to call” the pivotal states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. We knew Trump would win and endorsed him because Trump was the change candidate. We were sure the candidate of change would win. But really!!!! With all the Susan Rice/Barack Obama corruptions of the election process how in hell did Donald J. Trump manage to win??? The odds against this victory become more vast, more immeasurable, the more this scandal develops.

It was a miracle.

President Trump today, against the weak Republican leadership, against the always ready to cave Republican senate, effectively managed to get Neil Gorsuch confirmed. The official vote will be tomorrow but it is a miracle that this has happened. We thought it would happen, but still, it is a miracle.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. Against all odds Trump became President. Now we discover that Barack Obama corrupted the intelligence agencies to attack Trump.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. Against all odds from Obama Dimocrats he is protecting America’s allies like Israel and attacking America’s enemies.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. Against Obama Dimocrat attempts to subvert the Constitution and GOP weaklings afraid of their own shadows, Donald J. Trump will be able to appoint his nominees to the Supreme Court.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle. The great miracle is that President Donald J. Trump is the salvation of the Republic.

Our Republic is saved by President Donald J. Trump. Obama Dimocrats will not subvert the Constitution further in their attempt to only allow a Supreme Court justice of their own choosing from confirmation. The democratic election will have consequences. President Donald J. Trump will be able to follow the Constitution and appoint Supreme Court Justices.

Our Republic is saved by President Donald J. Trump. Obama Dimocrat attempts to bring about war with Russia and protect Muslim terrorist nations will not succeed.

Our Republic is saved by President Donald J. Trump. Here the people rule. Government Of, By, and For the people, shall not perish from the Earth. It is not the intelligence agencies that will determine our elections. Here the people rule.

President Donald J. Trump is a miracle and the salvation of our Republic.

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

Trump’s Chess Castle, Dims Pickett’s Charge: Al-Sisi, #Gorsuch #Filibuster, #SusanRice, China, North Korea, Freedom Caucus

Update II: Lots of good analysis produced on the Susan Rice story. There’s this one at NeverTrump site NRO by the smart Andrew McCarthy who understands Trump was Watergated. McCarthy states that Rice unmasked names not because she did not know who the masked names were, nor to “investigate” because the White House does not investigate – F.B.I. C.I.A. N.S.A. investigate, but rather to unmask specific names to leakers down the line who would not know the identities of the masked names.

Likewise, NeverTrump lunatic headquarters Red State exposes CNN refusal to take the Susan Rice/Barack Obama Watergating of Trump seriously because their lead reporter (Jim Sciutto) is an old crony employee of both Obama during the Susan Rice era and her corrupt Big Media husband who is president of ABC News.

Our favorite commentary comes via the New York Post because they tie the Russia distraction and the Obama/Susan Rice Watergating of President Donald J. Trump:

Fresh evidence the Russia ‘scandal’ is a Team Obama operation

The Russia Big Media distraction is produced, directed, and acted by Barack Obama thugs. That’s why Barack Obama ran away to hide in French Polynesia for a month in mid-March. Obama doesn’t want to answer questions now that he is caught like a rat. He knew it was coming once Trump tweeted on March 4. It’s not just to get away from the ogre Michelle.

The lesson: don’t mess with President Trump. PDT got it right. Don’t play chess with the master. Don’t.

————————————————————————-

Update: Big Media will not fry Rice. Big Media thus far has ignored the Susan Rice abuse of power story because it directly implicates Big Media. Don’t forget Susan Rice is married to Ian Cameron, the executive producer of ABC News. Rice’s deputy was Ben Rhodes. Ben Rhodes is the brother of CBS News President David Rhodes.

Big Media is the enemy!

————————————————————————–

Chess players understand what President Trump is up to – he’s castling. The dullest amateur military historian can see what the Obama Dims are up to too.

This first week of April finds President Trump making large moves on the chess board. There’s a big meeting with massive ramifications, which we have been writing about for a long time, regarding Egypt. There is the massive move to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. On North Korea and war, we also see a massive move in a meeting this week with the President of China. There’s the Susan Rice revelation today too. It’s all big moves.

On the Obama Dimocrat side, military historians will recognize the strategy. It’s a civil war reenactment of Pickett’s Charge.



Because it is so simply stupid as strategy, let’s start with Obama Dimocrats. Their strategy against President Trump is exactly like the ill-fated, obviously stupid, Pickett’s Charge:

Pickett’s Charge was the culmination of the Battle of Gettysburg. Taking place on July 3, 1863, the third and final day of battle, it involved an infantry assault of approximately 15,000 Confederate soldiers against Union Major General George Meade’s troops’ position along Cemetery Ridge, manned by some 6,500 Federals. The assault would take the nine brigades of Confederate soldiers over three-quarter mile of open ground susceptible to cannon fire the entire time. The ill-fated assault resulted in over 6,000 Confederate casualties and marked the end of the battle of Gettysburg as well as Lee’s last invasion of the north.

That exactly describes what Obama Dimocrats are up to on the Gorsuch Supreme Court fight. They are going to CHARGE!!!! against President Trump in “open ground susceptible to cannon fire the entire time” for no discernible victory scenario. Already the Senate Judiciary Committee has approved the Gorsuch nomination 11-9 on a purely partisan vote. The fight now moves to the full Senate.

The Obama Dimocrat left, unlike the not-too-bright right, is correct in their analysis that Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court poses a death threat against their interests and must be fought with everything they’ve got. But a Pickett’s Charge assault is not a “with everything they’ve got” strategy, it is merely mass suicide.

The result as we have repeatedly written is that Obama Dimocrats will lose their Pickett’s filibuster against Gorsuch and every Supreme Court fight thereafter. This will lead to President Trump given a completely free strategic hand for his next Supreme Court picks.

Why are Obama Dimocrats charging across a vast open field, without political cover, constantly under fire, with no hope of victory, with only immediate and long term defeat possible? Because the left has gone mad, entirely hopelessly crazy. Anyone who read the first of the series of L.A. Times editorials this weekend sees the crazy.

The L.A. Times calls President Trump an “unprepared and unsuited” doofus who can’t get anything done while at the same time in full panic attack about all the “damage” President Trump has already done. Both of these allegations cannot be simultaneously correct. The L.A. Times is deranged as can be seen by it’s scenario about what can be done to politically assassinate President Trump:

Where will this end? Will Trump moderate his crazier campaign positions as time passes? Or will he provoke confrontation with Iran, North Korea or China, or disobey a judge’s order or order a soldier to violate the Constitution? Or, alternately, will the system itself — the Constitution, the courts, the permanent bureaucracy, the Congress, the Democrats, the marchers in the streets — protect us from him as he alienates more and more allies at home and abroad, steps on his own message and creates chaos at the expense of his ability to accomplish his goals?

That deranged paragraph is actually a good bit of counter analysis. It actually explains a great deal of what the left is up to. This leftist blueprint sees that President Trump will not let the problems of Iran and North Korea fester but will instead take action. The blueprint plan of the totalitarian left is also calling for “the courts” and “the permanent bureaucracy” along with Dimocrats in Congress and kooks in the streets to attack President Trump in any and every way possible.

Which brings us to President Donald J. Trump and what he is up to.

President Trump is playing political chess. As in the board game of kings, first come the opening moves. In the opening moves chess pieces are deployed tactically to achieve strategic aims. Some pawns are sacrificed for the greater good. Then when all the opening moves are exhausted, the King castles.

Castling is a defensive and offensive move which often signals the battle is about to begin. This week the battle has been engaged.

First came the well-timed White House revelation that Susan Rice is the Obama thug who “unmasked” for political purposes:

Top Obama Adviser Sought Names of Trump Associates in Intel

White House lawyers last month learned that the former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the identities of U.S. persons in raw intelligence reports on dozens of occasions that connect to the Donald Trump transition and campaign, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter. [snip]

The National Security Council’s senior director for intelligence, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, was conducting the review, according to two U.S. officials who spoke with Bloomberg View on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly. In February Cohen-Watnick discovered Rice’s multiple requests to unmask U.S. persons in intelligence reports that related to Trump transition activities. He brought this to the attention of the White House General Counsel’s office, who reviewed more of Rice’s requests and instructed him to end his own research into the unmasking policy.

The intelligence reports were summaries of monitored conversations — primarily between foreign officials discussing the Trump transition, but also in some cases direct contact between members of the Trump team and monitored foreign officials. One U.S. official familiar with the reports said they contained valuable political information on the Trump transition such as whom the Trump team was meeting, the views of Trump associates on foreign policy matters and plans for the incoming administration.

This leak is a defensive and offensive chess move. It comes as the Supreme Court fight heats up and should tangentially aid the case being made for a Gorsuch elevation to the court by undermining the Obama Dimocrats. This report not only defensively vindicates President Trump’s assertion that he was being surveilled, it also exposes Susan Rice and the Obama thugs as the snoops and leakers who sought to politically damage President Trump, in an offense move.

This castling report mocks Susan Rice’s “I know nothing about this” assertions on PBS in March. Back then Susan Rice also asserted “I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that account today.” Susan Rice might have been surprised that Chairman Nunes told the truth for all to hear. Susan Rice and all Americans now can see that Chairman Nunes handled himself very well. Contrary to what Big Media reports, Chairman Nunes “strange behavior” was not strange at all:

It emerged last week that he traveled to the White House last month, the night before he made an explosive allegation about Trump transition officials caught up in incidental surveillance. At the time he said he needed to go to the White House because the reports were only on a database for the executive branch. It now appears that he needed to view computer systems within the National Security Council that would include the logs of Rice’s requests to unmask U.S. persons.

It had nothing to do with “Russia”. The Watergating of Trump by Obama thugs started before President Trump was even nominated.

It’s only going to get worse for Obama Dimocrats and only better for those who defended President Trump as Senator Grassley is on the job and investigating Andrew McCabe the #2 of the F.B.I.



Nunes vindicated, Trump vindicated.


So all that talk about disarray and wild charges from President Trump are now proven to be that the “wild” charges are accurate and the “disarray” a tactic to expose culprits.

It’s the same call when it comes to the “wild” “disarray” on healthcare. It’s President Trump playing normal, regular, political chess, albeit very smartly. President Trump knows exactly what he is doing when he attacks even those from his own political party:

GOP leaders, remember Trump ran against your pieties … and won [snip]

President Trump acts decisively, reflecting his entrepreneurially background, and expects similar alacrity from Congress. The American people entrusted the GOP with a level of power not seen in nearly a century and they expect results. This is especially true of the party’s most loyal supporters who are tired of excuses from their elected representatives. That sense of frustration, even betrayal, set the stage for the accession to power of Donald Trump.

Remember that Republican voters categorically rejected the party’s dream team during the primary in favor of an outsider who happily overturned many conservative pieties. Not to put too fine a point on it, but Donald Trump ran against the congressional leadership of his own party and won.

For those confused about President Trump unfairly attacking the Freedom Caucus for righteously opposing the dreadful ObamaCare repeal/replace bill be confused no longer. Trump is castling here too. President Trump has two trains running and he can jump back and forth at any time of his own choosing. President Trump is a smart chess player playing chess on both trains. That’s why President Trump will attack NeverTrumpers like Amash of the Freedom Caucus and threaten primary challenges while also sweet-talking and golfing with Senator Rand Paul who is an ally of the Freedom Caucus.

That’s all domestic policy chess moves. The stunning stuff in on foreign policy.

President Trump today met with President Al-Sisi of Egypt. Barack Obama trashed Al-Sisi and wanted him removed. President Trump plays chess with Al-Sisi.


Since January 1, 2015 it was obvious to us that President Al-Sisi is the solution to the problems of the middle east. It started with that excellent New Year’s Day speech. Al-Sisi understands that Muslims have to stop Muslim terrorism. By March of 2015, it was even clearer that Al-Sisi should be a strong American partner alongside Israel.

In March of 2015 we wrote about Al-Sisi yet again. It was election eve in Israel. Obama was attacking Netanyahu. What did Al-Sisi do at this crucial moment in history as Netanyahu faced potential defeat and Barack Obama used State Department funds to attack Netanyahu?

Al-Sisi declared he spoke with Netanyahu “a lot” thereby providing a great deal of political cover for the embattled Israeli Prime Minister at a pivotal moment. Al-Sisi declared Barack Obama had “turned his back on Egypt”. Al-Sisi asked for American help and a partnership. Barack Obama trashed Al-Sisi and would not even meet nor talk with him. Barack Obama imposed military and economic sanctions against Egypt. Al-Sisi denounced the very idea of Iran having nuclear weapons. Al-Sisi defended Israeli interests and promoted regional stability. In short, Al-Sisi proved he was a friend of the West and the United States and therefore Barack Obama attacked Al-Sisi.

In that moment of Treachery and Danger, Al-Sisi proved he cared more about American interests and Israel than Barack Obama.

We have always thought that peace in the middle east will require a well-funded (by Saudi billions a year) Egyptian military allied with America to block Iran and Muslim terrorists. We suspect that President Trump shares our views. That’s why today, President Trump met with President Al-Sisi and on Wednesday for the second time hosts Jordanian King Abdullah II. Later in the month President Trump will meet with Mahmoud Abbas.

These meetings are a warning to not only the “Palestinian” leadership but also to Iran. Watch out fellas! It’s President Donald J. Trump you are dealing with, not weakling Barack Hussein Obama. Trump is about to castle on your azz.

President Trump’s chess moves and castling are most apparent in the Asia front. This Thursday and Friday President Trump meets with the Chinese President Xi Jinping. Most observers, including President Trump himself, expect these meetings to be “difficult”.

On trade, the issues will be difficult. But in chess parlance and analysis, Trump is castling for his meeting with China on North Korea.


We recently discussed the likelihood of all out war against North Korea or at the very least a powerful attack. We suspect the meeting this week with the Chinese President is President Trump castling before his attack on the North Korean dictatorship which threatens the United States.

Consider what we wrote then as a play-by-play description of the chess moves by President Trump.

First came the “visit” by Secretary of State T-Rex Tillerson to South Korea in which he stated “Let me be very clear: the policy of strategic patience has ended.”

A few weeks earlier, General “Mad Dog” Mattis, also in South Korea warned:

Speaking after talks at the defence ministry with his South Korean counterpart Han Min-koo, Mr Mattis told reporters that “any attack on the United States, or our allies, will be defeated, and any use of nuclear weapons would be met with a response that would be effective and overwhelming“.

North Korea conducted its fifth test of a nuclear device last year, and claims it is capable of carrying out a nuclear attack on the US, though experts are still unconvinced its technology has progressed that far.

It has also said in recent weeks that it has a new intercontinental ballistic missile, capable of reaching the US mainland, which it is prepared to test launch at any time.

The latest North Korean missile launch has been submarine based. An intercontinental ballistic missile might not be necessary for North Korea to attack the United States (presumably California or Hawaii – both states Trump lost in his election).

President Trump does not have to lecture the Chinese president on any of this. The Chinese president knows all this and knows that under Obama nothing was done to stop North Korea. But, it is President Trump now. President Donald J. Trump.

President Trump is about to tell the Chinese President to prepare to pay for food and homes for 25 million refugees from North Korea. Just as immigration is the #1 nexus issue for President Trump, China might have an immigration crisis soon too. “Do something to stop North Korea Mr. Chinese President, or else!

It’s chess, American style. President Trump just castled. Get ready to rumble.

Mistake In ’08 Part X: #DNC Chair Perez Of The Black, Muslim, Anti-Semite, Party

The Democratic Party of FDR was murdered by Barack Obama in Denver in 2008. We covered the three day funeral at the time. Today February 25, 2017, the ashes of the cremated party will be scattered to the four winds.

On Saturday, the new chairman of the Obama Dimocrat Party was selected by party leaders in Atlanta. The candidates ranged ideologically from deep crazy leftist (Perez) to deep deep offensively crazy (Keith Ellison) leftist.

The winner? It’s deep crazy leftist Tom Perez and his new deputy deep deep offensively crazy Keith Ellison.

* * * * * *

The Obama Dimocrat Party, as we have documented in our long running series of “Mistake in ’08” articles, is now because of Obama’s 2008 capture of the nomination, a black party.

After an election in 2016, in which all our dire predictions from many years ago of the importance of the white working class came true, the Obama Dimocrat Party continues down the Stalin-Lenin road – more content to rule in Hell, than serve in Heaven. The Obama Dimocrat Party, as documented by an analysis of census data, is on the ash-heap of history. The Obama Dimocrat Party is a black party of totalitarian leftists aided and abetted by crackpot white liberals who yearn to be black or to have black friends.

In other words, the Obama Dimocrat Party has contracted Electoral Ebola. The Obama Dimocrat Party, because of the majority-minority districts which only benefit black officialdom who cram black voters into said districts, cannot regain the majority in the House of Representatives as long as these districts exist. These majority-minority districts enrich black power brokers and serve to benefit Republicans by diluting Obama Dimocrat black votes in non-majority-minority districts – which are the majority of the country.

The Obama Dimocrat Party, because of their “weighted” convention delegate selection process which rewards black districts, is now the captive of the black electorate wherein whites need not apply unless their platform is to shut white people up:

If the Democratic Party is planning to move away from identity politics in the wake of its presidential election defeat, that memo didn’t reach some of the candidates running for Democratic National Committee chair.

One candidate declared at a forum Monday that white people need to “shut our mouths” and that her job is to “shut other white people down.”

“I’m a white woman, I don’t get it,” Sally Boynton Brown, Idaho Democratic Party executive director, told an applauding crowd at the Democracy in Color forum in Washington, D.C.

The Obama Dimocrat Party is also now an anti-Semitic party.

A few days ago, the Conservative Treehouse asked an intelligent, provocative, question and then answered the question in a most foolish manner:

Many people are noticing a rather familiar, albeit oddly timed, leftist “anti-Semitism” narrative being pushed into the media broadcasts over the past 36 hours. Yes, it seems to have come out of nowhere. Why? No one is really understanding what’s going on.

Understandably, the right side of the political continuum are referencing the media push from the position of their own camp; that makes them defensive. However, the actual motive of the professional corporate media to push this meme has nothing to do with President Trump or republicans – it’s an internal maneuver and transparently Clintonian.

Team Clinton, meaning the professionally political elements of the Democrat machinery, are pushing the anti-Semitism storylines because the party is in the final stages of framing their argument to ensure their preferred DNC head, Tom Perez, wins as party chair.

The Democratic National Committee votes this week for its next leader. The winner of the DNC chair race will very likely reflect whether the committee’s voting members think it prudent to align their party with the Hillary Clinton-Barack Obama camp, the Bernie Sanders camp — or neither. [snip]

Pushing odd, vague, disingenuous and sparsely connected stories about anti-Semitic news, is the way Team Clinton undermine Perez’s opponent, Keith Ellison.

Representative Ellison, a Muslim, carries a strong anti-Semitic liability from his past associations and past engagements speaking negatively about Jewish people.

Team Clinton are exponentially more shrewd than most give them credit for. Even Machiavelli couldn’t keep up with their schemes. With the DNC election coming up, the professionally Democrat know how to plant the most toxic seeds at just the right moment. This is their play toward that end result, nothing more.

The intelligent question was answered foolishly by Conservative Treehouse. It’s a good example of why, because of such dissimilar mindsets and contrary goals, the right wing constantly fails to understand the left wing and therefore should limit their discussions to those of tactics not strategy when it comes to the aims of the totalitarian left.

The clever but deeply flawed scenario described by Conservative Treehouse was that by “setting up a national dialogue of rising anti-Semitic activity” the Clintons profit because their candidate (Tom Perez) will be the next DNC chair, defeat Muslim Keith Ellison (the Bernie Sanders endorsed candidate) and the Clinton victory will be due to the “do you really want to make our party take this dangerous path… .”

Conservative Treehouse has not a clue what this is about. To claim that the Clinton’s have a brilliant strategy to capture the party and keep Bernie Sanders at bay is so foolish, so entirely naïve, so bereft of understanding of the left, we are almost left speechless. Consider this deranged sentence from the Treehouse:

“What’s so brilliantly Clintonian about this play is how the Democrat apparatus gets their opponents (grassroots supporters of Sanders/Ellison) to push the anti-Semitic narrative by giving the appearance of a target against Trump. The Bernie people are so blind to their own party working against them, they willingly push the narrative and don’t realize it undermines their own leader, Keith Ellison. Brilliant x infinity.”

As if. To say something is “brilliantly Clintonian” after this past election cycle boggles the mind. Really, “brilliantly Clintonian”?

The only thing Conservative Treehouse got right was in noticing the “anti-Semitism” attacks on President Trump in the past few weeks. Conservative Treehouse was also correct in speculating that all the “anti-Semitism” news was more about the DNC chair fight than about President Donald J. Trump. But that was it. The answer to the question posed was rubbish.

So what was going on with all the attention to “anti-Semitism” recently? The answer was simple. It was a way to “normalize” anti-Semitism. It was a way to HELP Keith Ellison, not hurt him.

As pseudo-intellectuals and technology fanboys frequently state regarding some quirky computer software anomalies: “it is a feature, not a bug.”

Keith Ellison has a long history of anti-Semitism. Keith Ellison is a Jew hating Muslim creep as has long been documented by those on the right and from those on the left. For the Obama Dimocrat Party this anti-Semitism is a feature, not a bug. Keith Ellison is in the mainstream of Obama Dimocrat Party leftist thought when it comes to his anti-Semitism. What the Conservative Treehouse does not comprehend is that the anti-Semitism of Keith Ellison helped him in his quest to become the DNC chair, not hurt.

The totalitarian far far left, eager to help Keith Ellison become DNC chair, decided to “normalize” anti-Semitism. That’s why there were so many ridiculous attacks on President Trump who has a Jewish son-in-law, a daughter converted to Judaism, Jewish grandchildren, and a long history of Jewish friends such as Sheldon Adelson. Indeed, the Mar-a-Lago resort featured a long fight by Donald J. Trump to allow blacks and Jews to golf there. Donald J. Trump won his fight against “restricted” golf clubs and scored a victory against anti-Semitism more than 20 years before he ran for president.

So, how did the ridiculous attacks on President Trump attempt to help Keith Ellison? Because anyone in the Obama Dimocrat Party who might have suggested that the election of Muslim Keith Ellison as DNC chair would hurt the Obama Dimocrat Party, was silenced. Anti-Semitism was “normalized”. If some “strategist” said “Muslim Keith Ellison might hurt us with Jewish voters” the answer from the Muslim left was “yeah, but Trump is an anti-Semite too so don’t hold that against Muslim Keith.”

Conservatives don’t understand the convoluted perverse thought patterns of the far left.

The leftists who supported Keith Ellison figured that if they waged a campaign to claim ridiculously that President Trump is an anti-Semite they thereby diluted the “anti-Semite” charge when it was correctly lobbed against Muslim Jew hater Keith Ellison. Now that can be considered “brilliant” as a filthy political ploy.

Anyone who claimed that Bill and/or Hillary Clinton were “brilliant” as strategists in this DNC chair battle – in light of the 2016 election results – simply was not paying attention.

So what were the moves and countermoves of the DNC Chair fight? The fight was simply this: Barack Obama wants to continue to control the Obama Dimocrat Party. That’s why Barack decided to stay in Washington. We wrote about that when few others paid attention. Barack Obama is not staying in Washington for the weather, nor for his daughter. Obama is in Washington because it is from D.C. that Obama can maintain control of the Obama Dimocrat Party and stay on the corrupt gravy train.

Barack Obama’s candidate was Tom Perez. Barack Obama would have backed a horse for DNC chair if that would help him maintain his control of the Obama Dimocrat Party and keep the money flowing.

Bernie Sanders and the far far left wanted Keith Ellison. Socialist kook Bernie thinks he can run for president again in 2020 and somehow win the nomination and the general election. Pocahontas Warren also wants to run for president in 2020 so she too backed Keith Ellison. Sanders and Warren apparently have not learned that at the DNC rigged elections matter.

The DNC chair fight was a clumsy Bernie and Warren struggle to wrest control of the Obama Dimocrat Party from Barack Obama. Barack Obama wants to keep control. Obama continues to control the DNC. Rigged Elections Matter.

Hillary Clinton? That fire has berned out. Hillary Clinton is Obama’s lapdog at best. She has no power here. Tom Perez owes his allegiance and position(s) to Barack Obama and Barack Obama is his master, not Hillary Clinton.

The big winner in all this? President Donald J. Trump. President Trump has played his cards perfectly, brilliantly.

President Trump could have lashed out against the charges of anti-Semitism in an earth shaking way. President Trump could have reminded everyone from every pulpit he commands, of his support for Jews and his Mar-a-Lago destruction of “restricted” anti Jew, anti Black, actions 20 years ago. But President Trump did not do that. President Trump mostly denied, in a calm manner, the accusations. President Trump mostly stayed below the radar on all this.

Why? Why did President Trump not grab the headlines on this issue. Why did President Trump kinda/sorta help leftist Muslim, black racist, Keith Ellison with tweets such as this:


As with his regular faint “praise” of Bernie Sanders, President Trump was dividing the opposition in order to conquer. President Trump played his cards exactly right, in this his second month in office. On the one hand, for the good of the country, President Trump did not want to encourage the DNC to elect a Muslim, racist Black, Jew-hater, leftist totalitarian, even if that did that take the party away from Barack Obama thereby possibly creating a schism in the Obama Dimocrat Party.

On the other hand, President Trump understood that a DNC run by a Muslim, racist Black, Jew-hater, leftist totalitarian, helps cement President Trump’s hold on the white working class and even brings into motion Jews as they leave the Obama Dimocrat Party.


Will American Jews begin the Exodus now that a Muslim, racist Black, Jew-hater, leftist totalitarian loon, is the Deputy DNC chair? We don’t know.

We do know that a leftist totalitarian loon was elected as the new DNC chair. We do know that a leftist totalitarian offensive anti-Semite was elected Deputy DNC Chair. We do know that President Donald J. Trump is smiling tonight. We do know that tonight the ashes of the Obama Dimocrat Party are blowing in the wind.

The “Mistake in ’08” continues to shape American history and raise up the Republican Party.

Trump Week 4: Michael Flynn Flies; Vigo Vigor; Immigration Idiocy; Netanyahu Nears; Trudeau Talks; Trump Trumps

Ed Koch used to ask, “How am I doing?” Big Media, as President Trump begins week 4, thinks “It’s over for Trump”… again. America, thinks things are just grand. Consider a nastily testy report from Trump hater Politico which asks Vigo, “how is President Trump doing?”:

‘I’m Still All Trumped Up’

Hundreds of miles from the din of D.C., the nation’s bellwether county thinks the new president is doing just fine. [snip]

Almost a month into Trump’s administration, Vigo—population 108,000, the nation’s swingiest swing county—seemed to be an ideal place to take the temperature of voters. This year, Vigo swung for Trump (who took 55.4 percent to Hillary Clinton’s 40.2 percent), continuing a 60-year streak as the nation’s most accurate bellwether county. [snip]

What I heard, in conversations with nearly a dozen Trump supporters, is that like the Ameses, most of Vigo County is still “Trumped up.” [snip] The lies, the fumbles and faux pas that have rattled the D.C. establishment and global allies? None of it seems to resonate here.

I think Trump is doing exactly what he said he was going to do,” said Keith Kindsvatter, a 64-year-old system specialist with the Federal Aviation Administration, as he chomped on his BLT sandwich at Boo’s. [snip]

To a person, the Trump voters I talked to in Vigo offered a similar refrain as they assessed Trump’s first days in office, almost as if they were reading from a fresh batch of talking points issued by the president’s director of Surrogate Outreach: “He’s doing exactly what he promised he would do,” Kelly, 48, a pharmacist in Terre Haute who felt uncomfortable divulging her last name, told me when I asked her about Trump’s controversial immigration executive order, as she ate a slice of cheese pizza at the food court in Honey Creek Mall. Nor are voters like Kelly lamenting his Twitter tirades: “He’s speaking directly to the people. Like Reagan!” Dick told me over lunch. Trump’s brusque, shoot-from-the-hip conversations with world leaders and allies? “We’re not going to go to war with Australia,” Kindsvatter said.

I think he’s pretty much following The Art of the Deal,” said Ken Warner, 60, who works in the finance industry. “He’s got the price of fighter jets down. It’s not something we’re used to. It’s a little unorthodox. Listening to his Carrier negotiation, you have to shrug on the means but can’t disagree with the ends. You don’t want to be picking winners and losers. You don’t want to see a president calling out people on Twitter. However, the results so far have not been bad. So I can’t say it’s wrong.” [snip]

“He’s done more in the two weeks he’s been president than the other president did in eight years,” Dick told me.

Even as Politico acknowledges the people of Vigo are happy with President Trump and his results thus far, the condescension that Vigo does not think like the people in places Politico has offices in is clear. The message from Vigo to President Trump? “Stand strong.” “We’re with you!”

A short while earlier, Politico published an article about alleged chaos and calamity of poor befuddled nincompoops in the White House who realize they are in over their heads and, well, “it’s over for Trump.” After thirty paragraphs of gloom and doom, Politico is forced to admit that even if Big Media and coastal elites are bothered and bewildered, President Trump supporters stand strong:

If the opening days of Trump’s presidency have been rocky and unconventional, many of his admirers aren’t bothered by it.

“I’m not disappointed in the president’s work so far — he operates like many great CEOs I know — and I hope he continues to manage the country in a manner worlds apart from the way we’ve seen in the past,” said Michael Caputo, who was a Trump campaign aide. “It’s about time.”

Ignore Big Media. How is President Trump doing?

President Trump started the working week (he also works on weekends you know) with a meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that from all accounts went very well. If this was President Obama that would have been enough activity for the entire week, or month. But we’re talking about President Trump here, so a lot more was done.

The corrupt Vice President of Venezuela Tareck El Aissami was sanctioned for his international drug smuggling. President Trump continued to get his cabinet officials confirmed by the Senate. The Veteran Affairs and Treasury Department secretaries both confirmed as week 4 begins.

Two in, one out. On Monday, President Trump mulled the questions about his good and faithful National Security Advisor Mike Flynn. By the end of the day Flynn flew.

The story of Mike Flynn is very simple. During the transition Mike Flynn spoke with the Russian Ambassador about sanctions on Russia. Mike Flynn however “misled” Vice President Pence about those conversations. Pence went on TV to say the Flynn calls did not discuss sanctions on Russia. See the problem?

Mike Flynn did not violate the law. Mike Flynn did nothing wrong. Mike Flynn was smart to have those conversations with the Russians. Mike Flynn did commit a grave crime in Trump world: stupidity.



Mike Flynn made a stupid mistake. The mistake is not what Big Media wants Americans to think however. Mike Flynn’s stupid mistake was he did not take precautions even though he knew full well that the political establishment and especially the intelligence bureaucracy is out to destroy President Trump with leaks. Mike Flynn’s stupid mistake was to put himself into the line of fire of the hidden assassins.

Also, don’t mess with Pence (or Bannon).



Investigations into the leaks will have to go into the secret encrypted communications that many of the federal bureaucrats use to plot against President Trump. The moles will have to be dug out and removed. These treacherous bureaucrats manage to get a scalp from a good man. As an honorable man, Mike Flynn resigned. The White House and President Trump stood behind him but everyone knew it was time to go. So he went. He fell on his sword for the President that stood by him. Well done by all.

As the Flynn noise gathered, there was a lot of noise on immigration too. The Obama Dimocrats have a lot of problems with the immigration issue. Still, the “legal garbage” by the courts on President Trump’s immigration order continued.

Lots and lots of noise on immigration and the President Trump executive order:

A Seattle federal district court has issued a preliminary injunction on President Trump’s controversial immigration executive order, which temporarily banned most immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries and also shut down the refugee program for 120 days.

The injunction, by Judge James Robart, effectively extends the temporary restraining order he issued earlier this month into an indefinite nationwide block of Trump’s immigration order.

Robart rejected calls from the Trump administration to postpone the district court case while the 9th Circuit considers a request from one of its judges for a rehearing of last week’s decision, which denied a motion to lift the restraining order. [snip]

Meanwhile, a federal court in Virginia issued a preliminary injunction on Trump’s executive order, but the edict only applies to the state. The judge in that case rejected Virginia’s request to apply the decision nationwide, restricting it to legal permanent residents of Virginia and valid visa holders who work or attend school there.

But the judge in that case, Leonie Brinkema, wrote that “the Commonwealth has produced unrebutted evidence supporting its position that it is likely to succeed on an Establishment Clause claim.”

The ‘Muslim ban’ was a centerpiece of the president’s campaign for months, and the press release calling for it was still available on his website as of the day this [opinion] is being entered.”

“The major premise of that argument – that one can only demonstrate animus toward a group of people by targeting all of them at once – is flawed,” Brinkema added. “It is a discriminatory purpose that matters, no matter how inefficient the execution.” [snip]

While the administration is expected to release new orders, it is Evan’s understanding they will likely include introductory remarks indicating the new orders are intended to “clarify” or “supplement” the existing executive order. [snip]

Trump may issue multiple orders so that if the courts strike down one part, it wouldn’t affect the order as a whole, according to Evans’ understanding of the issue.

Evans says he believes the administration wanted to keep the 9th Circuit case active so they can take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court at the right time and reverse last week’s unfavorable ruling. [snip]

Another Trump strategy is to delay the 9th Circuit case until Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, can get on the bench, according to Evans’ understanding. One way to do this is to file for a reconsideration en banc to the 9th Circuit, which is already in motion because a judge on Friday requested a judges’ vote.

You can buy yourself 28 days,” said Evans, adding that “there’s a lot of chess and legal maneuvering going on.”

“Based on what I’ve read and seen the Trump Administration wants to maximize the chance to have the full Supreme Court decide whether the commander-in-chief indeed has the broadest discretion in deciding what is in the interest of the United States,” Evans said.

Yeah, lots of noise. Court cases around the nation will proceed. The Seattle lunatic judge is crazier than ever. The Ninth Circus is having second thoughts. This is all a lot of noise. What matters is, President Trump will win:

If immigration ban goes to Supreme Court, Trump is shoo-in to win [snip]

The states claim that the order’s 90-day ban on admitting lawful permanent residents and non-immigrant visa holders from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen to the United States without notice and an opportunity to respond violates their right to due process under the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution.

But a visa does not guarantee entry into the United States. It just allows an alien to travel to a United States port-of-entry and request permission to enter. [snip]

The 90-day suspension is based on Section 212(f), which gives the president authority to exclude aliens from the United States without regard to whether they are in one of the classes described by section 212(a).

In other words, when entry is denied under section 212(f), the determination on admissibility is made by the president, not by an immigration judge. [snip]

According to the Congressional Research Service, “Neither the text of Section 212(f) nor the case law to date suggests any firm legal limits upon the president’s exercise of his authority to exclude aliens under this provision.”

It does not state even what the president should consider in determining whether the entry of an alien is “detrimental” to U.S. interests.

According to the states, the order “was not truly meant to protect against terror attacks by foreign nationals but rather was intended to enact a ‘Muslim ban’ as the president had stated during his presidential campaign that he would do.”

The states claim that therefore the Order violates the Establishment and Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution. [snip]

According to Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz, the 90-day suspension does not violate the establishment clause. President Trump picked countries that have high levels of terrorism. When you focus on real perpetrators and the impact is heavily on one particular religion, that does not create a constitutional problem.

Although the government may have to take this case all the way to the Supreme Court, I will be surprised if the order is not upheld in the end.



It’s just a matter of time. On immigration and all the current noisy battles, Trump will trump.

As week 4 progresses, Trump will be even more trumpy.

On hump day, President Trump will meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel. Oh, oh, there’s sure to be a big fight between those two right? After all, Big Media reported that President Trump had just stabbed Israel in the back. Um, Big Media lied:

More Fake News: Trump ‘Opposes’ Israeli Settlements

The mainstream media are abuzz with reports that President Donald Trump has come out against Israeli settlements. The New York Times was exultant: “Trump Embraces Pillars of Obama’s Foreign Policy,” it crowed.

That kind of story serves two propagandist purposes. First, it provides a kind of justification for Obama’s betrayal of Israel at the UN Security Council over settlements last month; second, it nods at the old NeverTrump claim that Trump would never keep his word to conservatives.

There’s just one problem: the story is false. [snip]

The Trump administration’s statement is a complete reversal of the Obama administration’s policy.

As legal scholar Eugene Kontorovich explains:

The White House Press Secretary’s statement about settlement building is a huge change of policy, in which the U.S. broadly accepts all building within settlements, including those settlements outside of “blocs.” This is huge.

In the statement, the White House says the building of entirely “new settlements” is not great (but not sharply criticized). On the other hand, building “within existing settlement lines,” ie municipal boundaries, is totally OK. Since all building for 20 years has been within existing lines, and all planned building is within existing lines, this is as big an authorization as it gets.

This is such a big deal, that the press is trying to spin it as a limitation on settlement activity, whereas it is a broad and historic green light. It can no longer be said that the US opposes settlement building.

Perhaps the White House deliberately spun the statement as a limitation to fool the media. That is not hard to do, and it is to President Trump’s benefit, as a negotiating tactic, to appear unpredictable — aggressive one moment, compromising the next.

Nevertheless, the Trump administration has just signaled its intent to back a permanent Jewish presence in eastern Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria (the West Bank), with or without a Palestinian state.

Israel Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu has a friend in the White House. Thanks to President Trump, Prime Minister Netanyahu is now a hot ticket:

Israeli PM Netanyahu Becomes D.C. Darling as Democrats Clamor
for Meetings

After years of tense relations, Netanyahu most coveted meeting in D.C.

After years of tense relations with the United States under former President Barack Obama, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is emerging as one of the most prominent international personalities, according to multiple sources who told the Washington Free Beacon that Democrats, Republicans, and high-level White House officials are clamoring for a sit down with the Israeli leader when he arrives in town on Tuesday.

Senior officials across party lines hope to let Netanyahu know that America has Israel’s back and that years of tension during the Obama administration is just water under the bridge, according to both congressional sources and those close to the Trump administration.

Netanyahu’s schedule is already packed with powwows between President Trump, senior administration officials, and a cast of leading lawmakers on Capitol Hill from both sides of the aisle.

Meetings will center on U.S. lawmakers’ desire to reset relations with the Jewish state. Multiple sources told the Free Beacon that sit downs with White House officials will focus on holding Iran accountable for violations of the nuclear deal, moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and combatting efforts at the United Nations to delegitimize Israel. [snip]

There is a strong desire among all parties to show Netanyahu that after nearly a decade of chilly relations during the former administration, the United States is prepared to restore the historic relationship with the Jewish state.

“Netanyahu’s schedule is so full that he literally can’t find time for all the high level meetings people want to have with him,” said one veteran foreign policy adviser who is closely in touch with the White House on Middle East issues. “The truth of this is, it’s nature taking its course.”

Even stab-em-in-the-back Chuckie Schumer wants to hug Bibi. It’s like a St. Valentine’s Day miracle, Jewish version.

If you want to know how President Trump is doing, ask the residents of Vigo and Benyamin Netanyahu.

Fake Tears: GOP Establishment, Dems, Schumer, Against President Trump And The Fight For The West

Update: It’s over for Yates. President Trump has fired her snowflake ass. Snowflake Yates put her feelings above her duties. Because the Senate has failed to confirm Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, an Obama twerp, Sally Yates, has been Acting Attorney General. Late today Yates put her feelings on display and declared she would not defend, nor have the Department of Justice lawyers defend in court, President Trump’s executive order on immigration:

Yates does not claim that she cannot defend the executive order because it is unconstitutional or because the Justice Department would be unable to offer good-faith arguments in defense of its legality. To the contrary, Yates claims she is ordering the Justice Department not to defend the executive order because it is not “wise or just.” This is quite significant. I am not aware of any instance in which the Justice Department has refused to defend a presumptively lawful executive action on this basis.

It didn’t take long for President Trump to unleash the heat on the snowflake:

Statement on the Appointment of Dana Boente as Acting Attorney General

The acting Attorney General, Sally Yates, has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States. This order was approved as to form and legality by the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel.

Ms. Yates is an Obama Administration appointee who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.

It is time to get serious about protecting our country. Calling for tougher vetting for individuals travelling from seven dangerous places is not extreme. It is reasonable and necessary to protect our country.

Tonight, President Trump relieved Ms. Yates of her duties and subsequently named Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to serve as Acting Attorney General until Senator Jeff Sessions is finally confirmed by the Senate, where he is being wrongly held up by Democrat senators for strictly political reasons.

“I am honored to serve President Trump in this role until Senator Sessions is confirmed. I will defend and enforce the laws of our country to ensure that our people and our nation are protected,” said Dana Boente, Acting Attorney General.

KABONG!!!!

Could President Trump have waited? No, as the New York Times noted of the snowflake, “She is the only one authorized to sign foreign surveillance warrants, an essential function at the department.” President Trump is on the job.

DRAIN THE SWAMP MR. PRESIDENT, DRAIN THE FREAKING SWAMP!!!

—————————————————————

Chuck Schumer never cried when terrorists killed Americans. Chuck Schumer did not cry when Kate Steinle was shot dead by an illegal immigrant. Chuck Schumer never cried when Christians in the Middle East are slaughtered by Muslims. But Chuck Schumer cried because President Trump enforced the law to protect Americans.

In August of 2015 we wrote that Donald J. Trump’s immigration policy was “Enforce the Law!”

Before you pass new laws you won’t enforce, enforce the law already on the books.

Marco Rubio and the political class wrote and tried to pass their “Comprehensive Immigration Reform Plan”. The Rubio political class “Comprehensive Immigration Reform Plan” was more millions of words added to the legislative and regulatory library, unread and entirely without meaning. All the millions of new words had no meaning because they would not have been enforced.

This past Sunday Donald Trump unveiled his Comprehensive Immigration Reform Plan. In three words, all of which have meaning, the plan would “enforce the law.”

There is no point in passing a new law if it will not be enforced. There is no point in having a law if it is not enforced. A law that is not enforced is not a law, it is not even a suggestion. A law that is not enforced is a bunch of words devoid of meaning. That is to say, Barack Obama is the embodiment of the concept – a collection of words without meaning other than self-absorption.

Nothing has changed since we wrote that analysis in 2015. Liddle Marco, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, the GOP establishment, the Obama Dimocrat Party, State Department flunkies, the Big Media Party, the Left, Soros, right wing Chamber of Commerce lick-boot “writers” and bloggers, West Coast socialists with big companies, all still fight now President Trump’s “Make America Safe Again” fearlessness.


Trump voters and supporters? The people who elected Donald J. Trump president, stand with President Trump:

The relaxed reaction among the kind of voters who drove Trump’s historic upset victory – working- and middle-class residents of Midwest and the South – provided a striking contrast to the uproar that has gripped major coastal cities, where thousands of protesters flocked to airports where immigrants had been detained.

In the St. Louis suburb of Manchester, Missouri, 72-year-old Jo Ann Tieken characterized the president as bringing reason into an overheated debate.

“Somebody has to stand up, be the grown up and see what we can do better to check on people coming in,” she said. “I’m all for everybody to stop and take a breath … Just give it a chance.”

A Rasmussen poll out early Monday confirms Americans want to Make America Safe Again and support President Trump:

Most voters approve of President Trump’s temporary halt to refugees and visitors from several Middle Eastern and African countries until the government can do a better job of keeping out individuals who are terrorist threats.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters favor a temporary ban on refugees from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen until the federal government approves its ability to screen out potential terrorists form coming here. Thirty-three percent (33%) are opposed, while 10% are undecided.

In short, nothing has changed from the election campaign Donald J. Trump won. President Trump fights to Make America Safe Again, while Trump opponents support an intifida against the West.

Was the immigration executive order botched? Should President Trump have given more notice before he implemented his Make America Safe Again executive order? President Trump declared he will not make the same mistakes boob Obama made of giving advance notice to America’s enemies:


President Trump will Make America Safe Again. Chuck Schumer and his intifada against America and the West are political opportunism. Chuck Schumer never wept, there were no tears, as Jews got killed by Muslims. Chuck Schumer never wept at the many countries Jews are banned from visiting. Chuck Schumer did not weep this past week about what happened in Muslim Germany:

German Muslim students protest Holocaust remembrance, attack Israel

The school director said that it was good there was student opposition to the memorial event because it “is the basis of discussion.”

Muslim students of Arab and Turkish origin protested participation in an International Holocaust Remembrance Day event in Germany, while their high school’s administration showed understanding for their criticism of Israel. [snip]

The Holocaust remembrance event was part of a global commemoration in which participants take selfie photographs along with a sign saying “I Remember“ or “We Remember.“ A blackboard at the school was defaced with the sentence: “F*** Israel, free Palestine.” The school was not able to identify the perpetrator. [snip]

Zuroff, who is Wiesenthal’s chief Nazi-hunter, added, “Given that Holocaust consciousness is a central idea of civic identity in the Federal Republic, it is doubly important for families that come from countries with deep antisemitic traditions and no knowledge of the Holocaust and the destruction of European Jewry.”

The Weiterbildungskolleg Emscher-Lippe school, where the protest unfolded, has 500 students, 40% of whom have a migrant background. [snip]

In January, a German court reaffirmed a legal decision from the city of Wuppertal stating the torching of a synagogue by three Muslims was not motivated by antisemitism. The court wrote the men only sought via the arson “to clearly draw attention to the blazing conflict between Israel and Palestinians” during Operation Protective Edge in 2014. The original synagogue in Wuppertal was burned by Germans in 1938.

No tears from Intifada Chuck Schumer who for political profit attacks President Trump. From Hillary Clinton, who was stabbed in the back by 2×4 Chuckie in 2008, there was more stupidity, more support for Israel haters.


Any doubts now about what Hillary would have done if she had won? No tears from Hillary Clinton or Chuck Schumer for the Jews blocked from 16 countries:

No one seems bothered with 16 Muslim countries where Israelis are banned

Sixteen countries forbid admission to Israeli passport holders:

  •  Algeria
  •  Bangladesh
  •  Brunei
  •  Iran
  •  Iraq (except Iraqi Kurdistan)
  •  Kuwait
  •  Lebanon (neighboring country; territory dispute – Shebaa farms)
  •  Libya
  •  Malaysia (Clearance permit needed from the Ministry of Home Affairs.)
  •  Oman
  •  Pakistan (Clearance permit needed from the Ministry of Internal Security.)
  •  Saudi Arabia
  •  Sudan
  •  Syria (neighboring country; territory dispute – Golan Heights)
  •  United Arab Emirates (accepted for transit only; not allowed for admission)
  •  Yemen

In addition, Iran, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen do not allow entry to people with evidence of travel to Israel, or whose passports have either a used or an unused Israeli visa. As a consequence, many countries will allow for a second passport to be issued to citizens wishing to circumvent this restriction.

A President Hillary Clinton would have bowed down to Islam, scarf on head.

Last week a real woman leader came to the United States to meet with President Trump. Theresa May dipped her tongue into Churchillian language:

Let’s stand together and halt eclipse of the West

Theresa May offered last night to help President Trump to prevent the West from being “eclipsed” by China as she urged him not to shirk his “obligation” to lead the world.

In a speech to a Republican congressional retreat in Philadelphia the prime minister matched parts of Mr Trump’s controversial foreign policy.

She criticised China’s increasingly “assertive” posture, promised to help to curb Iran’s “malign influence” in the Middle East and to do more to defend allies such as Israel in “tough neighbourhoods” while admitting that it was time to engage Russia in the search for peace in Syria.

Women, Gays, Jews, are most threatened by Islam and Muslim terrorists. But no tears from Hillary Clinton or Chuck Schumer for the victims of Islam and terror.

President Trump fights for the values of the West. Before he saves the West, President Trump must first Make America Safe Again. That is what President Trump is busy doing. Chuck Schumer, Hillary Clinton, and the establishments of the GOP and the Obama Dimocrats do not want to Make America Great Again. President Trump and the American people will defeat them all.

Obama Last Days Explained: Coward John Lewis, Play Russia To Defend Islam, Attack Israel, Defang The West, As The IC Threatens @RealDonaldTrump

Once again the obvious is missed by so-called analysts and Big Media pundits. We’ll explain it all.

Let’s start with that coward John Lewis. John Lewis is busy with his individual race-baiting brand of “interposition and nullification” by declaring President-Elect Donald J. Trump to be an illegitimate president. John Lewis is a coward and a pig. We recall on October 2007 John Lewis endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. Then the Obama attacks against John Lewis began. John Lewis, coward, broke down and dumped Hillary Clinton to endorse Obama on February 28, 2008. Now coward John Lewis pretends he is a big Hillary hero. Go to Hell John Lewis and go jump off the Edmund Pettus Bridge, you fat coward and old pig. Your glory days decades ago are over and now you are just a lump of ugliness.

Next, Obama and Russia. What is Obama up to? Well, he’s protecting Islam of course. Here’s what’s going on: Obama in his last week as chief goofball sent thousands of troops to Poland. Why? Because Obama is trying to set up troubles with Russia for Trump to deal with as the first priority and first headache for Trump the moment he becomes president.

Why is Obama trying to set up Russia as President Donald J. Trump’s first headache? In one small part because it continues the John Lewis “illegitimate” narrative. But the big reason for Obama to set up Russia as President Donald J. Trump’s first big and long-term headache is to protect Muslims and Islam. How? Well as long as President-Elect, soon President Donald J. Trump, is busy with Russia the longer he won’t be able to turn his full time attention to Muslim terrorists and the Islamic animals who bring ruin to all the world.

Obama’s use of Russia to protect Islam and the animals who kill in the name of Islam won’t work. For one, unlike Obama, Donald J. Trump can chew gum and walk at the same time. Second, Donald J. Trump knows about priorities. Trump will not be distracted by Obama’s tiny shiny balls trying to protect Islam and Muslim terrorists.

Which brings us to the “intelligence community” or IC. On Sunday, that dullard from the C.I.A. warned Trump about Russia. CIA director John Brennan despite all his many failures and the many stupidities and outright treacheries of Barack Obama tried on Sunday to lecture President-Elect Donald J. Trump on what he should and should not do. Most of his attacks centered on, you guessed it, Russia:

CIA Director John Brennan on Sunday had a stern parting message for Republican Donald Trump days before he assumes the U.S. presidency, cautioning him against loosening sanctions on Russia and warning him to watch what he says.

Brennan rebuked the president-elect for comparing U.S. intelligence practices to Nazi Germany in comments that laid bare the friction between Trump and the intelligence community he has criticized and is on the verge of commanding. [snip]

“What I do find outrageous is equating intelligence community with Nazi Germany,” Brennan said. “I do take great umbrage at that.”

His comments followed a tumultuous week of finger-pointing between Trump and intelligence agency leaders over an unsubstantiated report of compromising information Moscow had collected on Trump.

The unverified dossier was summarized in a U.S. intelligence report presented to President Barack Obama and Trump this month that concluded Russia tried to sway the outcome of the Nov. 8 election by hacking and other means. It did not make an assessment on whether the attempts were successful.

Trump accused the intelligence community of leaking the compromising information, which its leaders denied. They said it was their responsibility to inform the president-elect that the allegations were being circulated.

So what is this all about? Well its all about the distraction campaign using Russia to protect Islam. It’s also part of the delegitimize campaign. But it’s largely about Blackmail. We’ve seen it all before. It’s an old Gestapo trick. J. Edgar Hoover of the F.B.I. used this trick too. It went this way in 1960 and 1962: J. Edgar Hoover tells JFK there are all these dirty stories about you circulating, then Hoover presents a dossier on JFK to JFK with all the dirty secrets. After JFK sees what Hoover has in his files Hoover tells JFK, “don’t worry, I’ll protect you and keep this secret”.

In JFK’s case most of what Hoover had in his files was true. There was tons of blackmail material in Hoover’s files. But it does not matter whether the materials are true or false. The purpose is to intimidate, to let the new president know in no uncertain terms who is the boss in the relationship. As with JFK, who laughed off Hoover, after Hoover presented the blackmail material (maybe that’s due to the fact that the Kennedys themselves knew how to blackmail and because they knew J. Edgar Hoover was a homosexual) the attempt to intimidate President-Elect Donald J. Trump did not work.

When the blackmail material did not intimidate President-Elect Donald J. Trump, Big Media CNN got the wink and nod from the IC to publicize the material. Then Buzzfeed got the wink and nod from the IC to dump their ugly turd.

Problem is, none of this worked. Why? Because Trump fights. Trump took the fight against Big Media and the “intelligence community” public. President-Elect Donald J. Trump let them all know who is top dog, who wags the tail, and who are the dog’s turds.

Which brings us back to Israel. We discussed what Barack Obama is up to on Israel and how Gideon President-Elect Donald J. Trump with one single fireside Tweet will demolish Obama’s treacherous legacy. Today, Sunday, Barack Obama is again waging war against Israel:

The international community will send Donald Trump a strong warning that only a two-state solution can solve the Israel-Palestinian crisis, amid signs that the EU is willing to diverge from the US on Israel policy.

A conference in Paris on Sunday of more than 70 countries, organised by the French government and coming five days before Trump is inaugurated, will warn that the two-state solution is under threat and urge both sides in the conflict to resume talks.

It comes as Palestinians expressed concern that Trump advisers endorse the controversial Israeli settlement programme and want to move the US embassy to Jerusalem. [snip]

Netanyahu has called the event futile, rigged and “a relic”, saying: “It’s a last gasp of the past before the future sets in.”

That future is called Donald J. Trump. Barack Obama wants to befuddle President Donald J. Trump with Russia headaches so that Obama can attack Israel, as well as protect Islam and Muslim terrorists from Trump. Meanwhile Obama, after the Paris coven today plans more dangerous anti-Israel pro-Islam treacheries this last week:

Meanwhile, the PA official speaking to Breitbart Jerusalem said that any upcoming UN action would be geared toward bypassing the Mideast policies of the incoming Donald Trump administration by establishing binding guidelines for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations and a halt to settlement activity.

“The new motion will seek to set up a clear timeline for negotiations resulting in the establishment of a Palestinian state and stipulate a procedure for overseeing the implementation of Resolution 2334, including posting inspectors to the Palestinian territories,” said the PA official, who requested anonymity. [snip]

The PA official added that the Paris conference is expected to call on all sides to establish a Palestinian state within the so-called 1967 borders in a relatively short period of time, perhaps by the beginning of 2019.

“The goal is for these moves to be binding for the incoming American administration, which would have to adopt them as its platform, and also for the European Union, which is expected to step up should there be clashes with Trump,” he said.

“In the next few days we’ll know whether we’re headed to the UNSC,” the official said. “Right now, the chances of that are very high. From our viewpoint, the goal is partially achieved. The settlements have been designated as the main obstacle to the peace process and now it’s up for the world to make clear that, in the event of failure, the side that would refuse to comply with the will of the international community, as codified in the UN resolution, is the guilty side.”

The official said that at present it remains unclear whether any UNSC session would produce a new resolution or merely validate last week’s resolution.

Following in the EU’s steps, now the US recognizes that it’s Israel that sabotages the peace talks, and does so through its settlement enterprise,” the official claimed. “The motion is of immense significance – it validates all the decisions by the international community, chiefly the EU, to slap sanctions on Israel in the form of halting cooperation, halting the financing of mutual projects and expansion in scope of marking settlement products to all the products from every single settlement.

The PA official spoke following reports in recent days that there could be another UN Security Council resolution or some other UN action before Obama leaves office.

With the EU as his treacherous cats paw, Barack Obama wants to saddle President Trump with strife on Russia so that Trump cannot defend Israel nor move to attack the march of Islam against the West. But Barack Obama (as is the EU) and his policies are a relic, a last gasp of the past. Donald J. Trump is the future. The future will fight against the past to defend Israel, protect the West, and Make America Great Again.

Gideon In America: @RealDonaldTrump Saves Israel In Fight With Obama, John Kerry, Clinton

Here’s our viable ten step alternative to John Kerry’s delusions on the middle east peace process:

(1) The United States informs the Arab gulf oil states that continued intelligence sharing, security (and protection from Persian Iran), will require billions of dollars be given to Egypt every year; (2) Egypt reduces it’s high levels of unemployment with a massive increase in it’s Army manpower and armed forces; (3) Egypt purchases military hardware and training from the United States; (4) Egypt protects the Arab gulf oil states; (5) Egypt annexes the Gaza Strip and kills all the leaders of Hamas; (6) Egypt governs the Gaza Strip until such time as the Palestinians grow up and stop terrorism and if they don’t grow up, Egypt remains in control; (7) Egypt demilitarizes the Gaza Strip and may only bring in armored divisions, under Israeli supervision and agreement, to kill off opposition from Hamas and other Palestinian terrorists; (8) Egyptian armies will maintain order in the entire region in Arab states such as Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, as well as guarantee the peace with Israel – all backed up by American power in defense of Israel; (9) a federation controlled by Jordan of the West Bank Palestinians will govern the Palestinians in the West Bank; (10) if ever the Palestinians agree to recognize the existence and right to exist of Israel only then, at the discretion of the Jordan, Egypt, and Israel, will such consideration be provided by those three powers in consultation with the United States.

[N.B.: We have one more proposal we’ll post at the end.]

If you think our proposals are not viable or outright “nuts” consider John Kerry’s truly bizarre “solutions” that have guided American policy for decades. Does anyone really think that at this point in history the “two state solution” with Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the Palestinians is anything but a crackhead delirium ?

John Kerry said today “Ladies and Gentlemen: it’s vital that we all work to keep open the possibility of peace, and that we not lose hope in the two state solution, no matter how difficult it may seem — because there really is no viable alternative.” Well, we just provided a viable alternative that is more logical and likelier to happen than Obama/Kerry/Clinton’s fevered dreams as enunciated by the heavily Botoxed John Kerry today:

1. Provide for secure and recognized international borders between Israel and a viable and contiguous Palestine, negotiated based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed equivalent swaps. [snip] …No changes by Israel to the 1967 lines will be recognized by the international community unless agreed to by both sides.

2. Fulfill the vision of UN General Assembly Resolution 181 of two states for two peoples, one Jewish and one Arab, with mutual recognition and full equal rights for all their respective citizens. [snip]

3. Provide for a just, agreed, fair and realistic solution to the Palestinian refugee issue, with international assistance, that includes compensation, options and assistance in finding permanent homes, acknowledgment of suffering and other measures necessary for a comprehensive resolution consistent with two states for two peoples. [snip]

4. Provide an agreed resolution for Jerusalem as the internationally recognized capital of the two states, and protect and assure freedom of access to the holy sites consistent with the established status quo. [snip]

5. Satisfy Israel’s security needs and bring a full end to the occupation, while ensuring that Israel can defend itself effectively and that Palestine can provide security for its people in a sovereign and non-militarized state.

Dream on you Botoxed lummox! Bill Clinton tried some of this nonsense and it all blew up in his face because the Palestinians lied and refused to sign on. The bottom line is our ten point plan is more viable than John Kerry’s Botox in crackpipe huffing.

John Kerry’s “hate Israel” speech, authored by Israel hater Barack Obama is part of a bigger plan by Obama to destroy Israel. The Kerry speech should never have happened, says the second highest ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives:

A key Democratic leader on Capitol Hill is calling on Secretary of State John Kerry to cancel his Middle East peace speech scheduled for Wednesday — coming days after the US allowed an anti-Israel resolution to pass the United Nations.

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), the Democratic whip in the House of Representatives and the second- highest ranking Democrat in leadership, released a blistering statement Tuesday night calling on the Obama administration to cool it.

“Now, it is my understanding that Secretary Kerry, in the last few days of this Administration, intends to outline the parameters of an agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. This flies in the face of the United States’s longstanding position that such a formulation should be reached only through negotiations by the parties and not by the United States, the United Nations, or any other third party,” Hoyer said.

I urge Secretary Kerry and the Administration not to set forth a formula, which will inevitably disadvantage Israel in any negotiation,” Hoyer added.

Instead of turning against Israel, Hoyer urged Kerry — and by extension the rest of the Obama Administration — now to stand with Israel.

The United States must now take steps to signal unequivocally to the entire world that we will continue to stand by our ally Israel as it seeks to build a future of peace and safety as a Jewish state and an equal member of the family of nations,” the Democratic House leader said.

Lost in the Chappaqua woods, Hillary Clinton is still silent. So much for courageous leadership from this alleged woman leader who ran for election as the Obama Third Term.

The alleged strong woman leader remains silent but oddly, the Russians, the freakin’ Russians have something to say in defense of Israel:

Calling it an attempt to bring the US Domestic agenda to the UN, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov rejected John Kerry’s proposal to impose a Middle East solution on Israel in a telephone conversation Tuesday, with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. [snip]

It is a bit strange that Russia is protecting the Jewish State from anti-Israel actions by the American president and secretary of state.

It’s not only the Russians that see Obama/Kerry statements as an attack on President-Elect Donald J. Trump. A leader of Jewish settlers said pretty much the same thing:

In a radio interview, Erdan said Kerry’s speech was part of a broader effort to hinder the incoming administration of Donald Trump, who has signaled he will have much warmer relations with Israel.

This step is a pathetic step. It is an anti-democratic step because it’s clear that the administration and Kerry’s intention is to chain President-elect Trump,” Erdan told Israel Army Radio.

Erdan, a member of Netanyahu’s Likud Party and inner Security Cabinet, said Obama administration officials are “pro-Palestinian” and “don’t understand what’s happening in the Middle East.”

By the way, did we mention that brave woman leader Hillary Clinton is lost in the Chappaqua woods, apparently unable to comment on the latest Obama/Kerry/State Department attacks on Israel? Silence implies consent. The stink of Barack Obama and John Kerry is all over these attacks on Israel:

Leaked Document: U.S. Colluded With Palestinians 10 Days Before UN Settlements Vote

If authentic, the document, leaked to an Egyptian website, confirms some of the claims voiced in Israel against Obama since the UN vote against the settlements last week.

United States Secretary of State John Kerry and White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice told a Palestinian delegation in Washington 10 days before the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution against Israeli settlements that the U.S. would not impose a veto on such a resolution if its wording was balanced, according to a document released by an Egyptian news site. [snip]

The five-page Arabic document released by the site appears to be a summary of the meeting, composed by the Palestinian delegation. If the document is authentic, it was probably leaked by officials in the Egyptian government. [snip]

According to the document, Kerry and Rice said America’s UN Ambassador Samantha Power was prepared to meet with Palestinian UN Ambassador Riyad Mansour to discuss the matter. Rice and Kerry are said to have asked Erekat and the other members of the delegation to keep the meeting top secret. Kerry and Rice said they wanted to avoid leaks of the meeting to the media because of the sensitivity of the transition to the Trump administration. [snip]

According to the leaked document, Rice told the Palestinian delegation that the Trump administration was very dangerous for them because his positions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict differed from those of all American administrations since 1967. Rice recommended that the Palestinians take seriously what Trump’s advisers were saying about moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and annexation of parts of the West Bank to Israel.

So Egypt leaked the document, huh. Looks like our plan with a starring role for Egypt is kinda viable, certainly more viable than John Kerry’s crackpipe delusions. Of course, Obama does not believe his “plans” are viable at all, these are just not too subtle attacks against Israel. Barack Obama is planning new treacheries against Israel:

Multiple media outlets are reporting that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is finalizing a document that the Obama administration hopes will form the basis for a UN Security Council resolution that officially recognizes a Palestinian state before the end of Barack Obama’s term on January 20th. This comes on the heels of the UN Security Council’s adoption of resolution 2334 on December 23rd. That resolution declared that all Israeli settlements in the West Bank are illegal, it stated that the Security Council recognizes the 1967 ceasefire lines as the border between Israel and “Palestine”, and it officially gave East Jerusalem to the Palestinians. But it stopped short of formally recognizing a Palestinian state. Resolution 2334 speaks of a Palestinian state in the future tense, but this new resolution that John Kerry is reportedly working on would give immediate and permanent UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state.

Anybody seen or heard from Hillary Clinton? Maybe Hillary is getting paid off somehow in a fashion similar to how John Kerry’s daughter is getting paid off with millions from the State Department:

More than $9 million of Department of State money has been funneled through the Peace Corps to a nonprofit foundation started and run by Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter, documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation show.

The Department of State funded a Peace Corps program created by Dr. Vanessa Kerry and officials from both agencies, records show. The Peace Corps then awarded the money without competition to a nonprofit Kerry created for the program.

Initially, the Peace Corps awarded Kerry’s group — now called Seed Global Health — with a three-year contract worth $2 million of State Department money on Sept. 10, 2012, documents show. Her father was then the chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, which oversees both the Department of State and the Peace Corps.

Seed secured a four-year extension in September 2015, again without competition. This time, the Peace Corps gave the nonprofit $6.4 million provided by the Department of State while John Kerry was secretary of state.

There’s money to be made in treachery. Ask Judas Iscariot.

Fortunately, Israel still has friends in the United States. Oddly, two men in the U.S. Senate, who hate each other (Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz), are on the same side when it comes to the protection of Israel:

Congress Moving to Cut U.S. Funding to U.N. in Wake of Anti-Israel Vote
Cruz: Obama plotting further action against Israel

Congress is already setting the stage to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations in the wake of a contested vote last week in which the Obama administration permitted an anti-Israel resolution to win overwhelming approval, according to congressional leaders, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the current administration is already plotting to take further action against the Jewish state before vacating office.

Other punitive actions by Congress could include expelling Palestinian diplomats from U.S. soil and scaling back ties with foreign nations that voted in favor of the controversial measure, according to multiple sources who spoke to the Free Beacon about the situation both on and off the record.

The Obama administration is still under bipartisan attack for its decision to help craft and facilitate the passage of a U.N. resolution condemning the construction of Jewish homes in Jerusalem, a move that reversed years of U.S. policy on the matter.

The Free Beacon was the first to disclose on Monday that senior Obama administration officials played a key role in ensuring the measure was passed unanimously by the U.N. Security Council. This included a phone call by Vice President Joe Biden to Ukraine’s president to ensure that country voted in favor of the measure. [snip]

The disgraceful anti-Israel resolution passed by the UNSC was apparently only the opening salvo in the Obama administration’s final assault on Israel,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) told the Free Beacon. “President Obama, Secretary Kerry, Ambassador Power, and their colleagues should remember that the United States Congress reconvenes on January 3rd, and under the Constitution we control the taxpayer funds they would use for their anti-Israel initiatives.”

The 115th Congress must stop the current administration’s vicious attack on our great ally Israel, and address the major priorities of the incoming administration,” Cruz said, expressing his desire to work with the incoming Trump administration to reset the U.S. relationship with Israel. [snip]

The question now is whether this was the finale or the prologue of what this administration has planned against Israel,” the source said, adding that “everything is on the table right now — including funding cuts and scaling back diplomatic relations with countries that brought forward this resolution.” [snip]

Obama went to the U.N. because a U.N. resolution is functionally irreversible by normal means,” added a veteran foreign policy insider who is currently working with the incoming Trump administration. “Obama’s goal was to eliminate any limited options that could be used to repair the damage to Israel, and he gambled that Trump and Congress would be too intimidated to use the remaining big stick options. He’s going to lose that gamble.”

American leaders will now use exactly those options,” the source explained. “Everything is on the table, from systematically going after the U.N., to moving the U.S. embassy into parts of Jerusalem the U.N. says aren’t Israeli, to kicking the Palestinians out of Washington.”

“Members on both sides of the aisle are furious, so our response will be swift and forceful,” the second congressional source said. “With a Trump administration in place, any nation that seeks to delegitimize the Jewish state will need to answer to the United States.”

If Hillary Clinton had been elected, Hillary Clinton would have embraced Barack Obama’s treacheries against Israel. Silence implies consent. Hillary Clinton is entirely silent on Obama’s treacheries. Fortunately, the Almighty raised a Gideon to Make America Great Again and save Israel from B.O.’s stink.

President-Elect Donald J. Trump, soon to be President Donald J. Trump in less than 23 days, is that Gideon. Trump sees Barack Obama’s treacheries on the domestic and foreign policy fronts for what they are, treacheries:


When he announced for president we declared that Donald J. Trump’s greatest strength was his use of the English language. With his fireside Tweets, President-Elect Donald J. Trump lives up to our confidence in him. Two quotes from the soon to retire Thomas Sowell describe the incoming leader of the Free World:

Much of the social history of the Western world over the past three decades has involved replacing what worked with what sounded good.”

and

“People who pride themselves on their ‘complexity” and deride others for being ‘simplistic’ should realize that the truth is often not very complicated. What gets complex is evading the truth.”

Donald J. Trump has been telling the truth, the simple truth, the whole truth. Barack Obama has been lying all his life.

We have one last proposal to add to our viable plan for the middle east: the countries, such as New Zealand and Senegal, that voted against Israel should (1) be made to require visas for travel to the United States; (2) then have all the visa offices and American embassies shut down in those countries; (3) a notice should be posted at the entrance to all the closed American interest sections/embassies/visa offices stating: “All inquiries and applications for travel to the United States and or any business related questions should be made, in person, to the American embassy in Jerusalem, Israel.”

Don’t laugh. President Donald J. Trump just might do it. Gideon would.
