Update II: Schlonged!!! The Art of the Schlong! At the beginning of the week Paul Ryan lieutenant Kevin McCarthy announced there would be no BORDER WALL funding in the GOP establishment plans for any legislation passed this month. “We’ve got a lot of busy things happening here,” McCarthy said. “We have to deal with Harvey, we have the debt ceiling, we have a continuing resolution, which will be just about a three-month continuing resolution. So you will deal with the wall a little later in the year.” In other words, no funding for the elemental President Trump campaign promise of a BORDER WALL!
On Wednesday, Paul Ryan, King of the Ant-Trump RINO GOP Establishment, denounced the idea of a three month extension on the debt ceiling as “ridiculous and disgraceful.”
Paul Ryan and the GOP establishment made all sorts of grand promises early in 2017 of how they would get ObamaCare repeal done and all sorts of other President Trump promises passed – by August! It would all be done we were told early this year. It would all be done, don’t worry about it, lots of time to do it all, we have weeks set aside in case things are slower than anticipated, we’ll get it done, yeah, we’ll get it all done and get our agenda passed. The problems are that their agenda is not the Trump Agenda. The problems are all the promises have not come to pass. More promises of getting border wall funding or what they call “border security measures” which means no border wall funding sometime later – will never happen if it is left up to these back-stabbing passive aggressive weaklings.
President Trump knows he is dealing with treacherous establishment liars and users. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell along with the rest of the GOP establishment lie to the voters to get elected and they thought they could do the same to President Trump. But President Trump understands what kind of treacherous creatures he is dealing with:
Disloyal R's are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary. They come at you from all sides. They don’t know how to win – I will teach them!
Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, the GOP establishment thought they could passively aggressive beat President Trump in the art of the deal. Then President Trump schlonged them all, as we predicted in our article below.
President Trump made a better deal with cryin’ Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelousy. It was right out of the Bill Clinton triangulation playbook. President Trump schlonged the GOP establishment. President Trump used cryin’ Chuck and Pelousy to schlong Paul Ryno and the GOP establishment. Big Media and the schlonged tried to claim that President Trump was used by the Obama Dimocrats. To the contrary, President Trump let everyone know he will get his way one way or the other.
President Trump is in Art of the Deal mode. President Trump will even say sweet things about “dreamers” to get his way with cryin’ Chuck and Pelousy. President Trump said sweet things about Ryno and Ditch when they promised to get things done. Now President Trump will say sweet things about cryin’ Chuck and Pelousy if only to strike terror in the hearts of the GOP establishment.
President Trump wants to get things done. Paul Ryno and in the Ditch Mitch lied to President Trump about how hard they would work to get the Trump Agenda passed as they pretended their agenda was the Trump Agenda. Paul Ryno, in the Ditch Mitch, and the rest of the GOP congress instead of working hard went on vacation. Weeks of vacation. They got nothing done for President Trump as they had promised weekly since the beginning of the year. Paul Ryno and in the Ditch Mitch did in fact get a lot done – they blocked President Trump at every turn. So they rewarded themselves with many weeks of vacation.
Paul Ryno and in the Ditch Mitch thought they could keep on getting nothing done and then at the last moment go to President Trump and once again tell him “this is the best we can do so you better sign it” as they present garbage bills for the President’s signature without any border WALL funding. But instead President Trump schlonged them all.
With the three month extension of the debt limit and the passage of hurricane relief aid President Trump has placed congress in the position of getting work done or missing their Christmas vacation. They still have to repeal ObamaCare. They still have to pass tax reform not just tax cuts. There’s a lot of work to do. There’s a filibuster to get rid of too. If these treacherous manipulators want to go on vacation they will have to do what President Trump wants. They now know that President Trump will not stand like a doofus as they get nothing done on the Trump Agenda.
Update: Anyone who doubts our analysis that today’s caca DACA dump is a war by President Donald J. Trump against the GOP establishment Swamp should listen to what spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeatedly stated at today’s White House Press briefing:
Sarah Huckabee Sanders: Congress wasnt elected to do things tht were eazy so if they can't handle the heavy lift then GET OUT OF THE WAY!👊🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/ZXghFdFnFh
Sarah said it repeatedly at every opportunity that presented itself: “I don’t think the American people elected congress to do things that were easy. They elected them to make a government that works. To work properly and to work for the American people. That’s their job! If they can’t do it then they need to get out of the way and let somebody who can take on the heavy lift and get things accomplished!” In other words, do what President Trump wants or in 2018 “You’re Fired!!!!!!!!!”
Get out of the way and let somebody who can do the job get the job.
The final nail on the Jeff Flake coffin is in. Ditto for Paul Ryan and the rest of the GOP establishment Swamp swill.
In 2014 Paul Ryan was for ending DACA now he is for keeping it. Ryan is a Soros whore. Pay him big bucks and he will do whatever THEY want. pic.twitter.com/ZOYELNnIRT
As for the nightmare “dreamers”, years ago we warned them not to sign up for flim-flam con man Barack Obama’s unconstitutional lie because they would be surrendering their personal information willingly. Let’s sniff this DACA caca and let’s start with the dopey “dreamers” who believed in Barack Obama.
Not only did the dopeey “dreamers” turn over all their personal information and location to the federal government, they did so knowing full well that (1) DACA could be repealed at any time, and; (2) that the information they provided to the federal government could be used to kick them out at any time; (3) that they were so informed in documents they signed to obtain DACA status; and (4) because by the act of applying for DACA exemption they confessed they were in the USA illegally!
This is the information-sharing advisal in the DACA application instructions. Note highlighted material. pic.twitter.com/a97nP69SKu
The Obama Dimocrats lied to the “dreamers” in the same way the GOP establishment lied to the voters. The liars will be punished starting with the GOP liars. In six months, at the height of primary season, GOP liars who vowed to get rid of DACA when they did not think that was possible (before Trump) but now want to save DACA – will have to face the voters. It will be a beautiful nuclear bomb that will drop on their lying heads.
The extra added attraction to all this is that President Trump is for all intents and purposes irrelevant to the destruction of DACA. DACA is and always has been unconstitutional. The courts declared the parent amnesty DAPA to be unconstitutional. The initial lawsuit which we wrote about declared “This lawsuit is not about immigration. It is about the rule of law, presidential power, and the structural limits of the U.S. Constitution. ”
We wrote about Judge Hanen and those cases extensively. Read this prescient analysis we wrote on the day the lawsuit against DAPA was filed:
Illegal immigrants are not stupid. Few will risk trust in Obama when faced with the fact that Obama’s cheesy political ploy will expire once Obama is out of office. Even fewer illegal immigrants will trust Obama’s illegal illegal executive action now that they know that there are lawsuits which challenge Obama’s illegal illegal immigration executive diktat.
Illegal immigrants are canny and play their cards very close to the vest. Illegal immigrants are not about to expose themselves to potential deportation based on what Boob Obama for the moment says or does. Just like American citizens, foreign leaders, children, dogs, and anyone with a lick of sense, illegal immigrants know:
Obama simply cannot be trusted. Obama cannot be trusted on any issue. Obama cannot be trusted by his friends. Obama cannot be trusted by his foes. Obama cannot be trusted.
Illegal immigrants will now wait to see how these lawsuits play out before they raise their heads into a potential trap of whack-a-mole. Illegal immigrants will do a cost/benefit analysis and see that potentially they are putting their names into a deportation list if they rely on Obama’s word.
Illegal immigrants will also understand that by staying quiet until things play out in the courts and in 2016 they can watch and wait from their ensconced positions and not put themselves at risk – they will be no worse off and in less danger if things go badly for them in the courts or in the electoral arena. Obama and activists like Gutiérrez, who are in no danger, will exhort illegals to put themselves out to danger but illegal immigrants will not endanger themselves for the benefit of Obama and the Obama Dimocrat activists.
As it turns out the illegal immigrants who believed in Obama and Obama Dimocrats who used them as political fodder turned out to be most stupid. They signed up for DACA. They gave all their information and locations to the federal government. Why? The dolts believed Big Media and Obama Dimocrats who told them the Obama Dimocrat Reich would last for a thousand years. It didn’t. It’s dead.
Eventually, the lawsuit against DAPA ended in a 4-4 Supreme Court decision which left the Fifth Circuit decision in place meaning the Obama executive diktat was thrown out and the rule of law prevailed. Now though, if dolts such as the New York State Governor have their way and file a lawsuit against the rule of law, Justice Gorsuch will provide the fifth vote to destroy DACA as DAPA was destroyed – so all the plots and schemes by Obama Dimocrats will end in defeat.
New York will not demonize diversity.
We will not stand by as 42,000 NYers are deported.
The Cuomo threat is no threat at all. It is a gift to President Trump. If Obama Dimocrat Cuomo sues in court, he will lose the case at the Supreme Court and precedent will hold on the rule of law and against illegal immigration.
The lawsuit that will meet success is the promise from state attorneys general to sue in court if DACA is not ended. Judge Hanen sits waiting in Brownsville with his pen in hand.
President Trump knows all this so he devised a trap to get rid of the liars in the GOP such as Jeff Flake. It’s the Art of the Deal in hyper-drive.
In six months we will all be in primary season. Republicans running for reelection or those seeking nomination to run as a Republican for the House or Senate will have to say whether they are for illegal immigration amnesty via a congressional DACA. Opponents of illegal immigration amnesty will have a turkey shoot of RINOs not seen since the “great Marianas Turkey shoot” during World War II.
It’s over for Mitch. It’s over for North Korea’s Phat Un. It’s just getting started for President Trump.
Previously we examined the madness of the totalitarian leftists in the United States. We discussed how leftist astrologers and much of the left believes that on August 21 President Trump will be removed from office because of the portents associated with an eclipse on that date. The argument is that President Trump’s birth date means he will be very much impacted by the August 21 eclipse and that on August 21 there will be the fall of a king.
We mocked these leftist astrological fantasies and noted that if anything, logic leads more to the notion that late in August President Donald J. Trump will eliminate the threat posed by North Korea’s callow and overweight oppressive dictator who rules as part of a family line of dictatorial kings. These leftist astrologers and the rest of the totalitarian left in America should note the point we made:
This loon who is two rocks short of the moon declares that Secretary of State Tillerson on a visit to the 38th parallel in South Korea appeared in “his manner, words and tone resounding authority and threatening.” No discussion about the totalitarian nature of North Korea and the menace it poses to the world. In his defense, at least this political “astrologer” acknowledges that maybe all this trouble to be seen coming in August might be about North Korea.
Former President Barack Obama’s National Security adviser, Susan Rice, wants President Donald Trump to accept North Korea as a nuclear power.
“History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” she wrote in a New York Times op-ed, criticizing the president’s “fire and fury” rhetoric in response to the escalating tensions between the two countries.
Rice urged Gen. John Kelly, White House chief of staff, to stop Trump, and she pointedly attacked Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the deputy assistant to the president.
“John Kelly, Mr. Trump’s chief of staff, must assert control over the White House, including his boss, and curb the Trump surrogates whipping up Cuban missile crisis fears,” she wrote.
Rice complained that Trump’s rhetoric was “unprecedented and especially dangerous” and that America would have to be cautious about its response to Pyongyang.
President Donald J. Trump is not that fey weakling Barack Obama. President Trump will defend the values of America and destroy those who threaten us.
Earlier this week the Washington Post reported that the Defense Intelligence Agency assessed the nuclear threat posed by North Korea and concluded they had “successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles.”
Tuesday’s bombshell Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs – left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013. The Post also failed to mention that the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time.
During an April 11, 2013, House Armed Services Committee hearing, Congressman Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., inadvertently revealed several unclassified sentences from a DIA report that said DIA had determined with “moderate confidence” that North Korea has the capability to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be launched with a ballistic missile.
Barack Obama, Susan Rice, and the treacherous left hate America. President Donald J. Trump is not treacherous Barack Obama. Going back years to 1999, Donald J. Trump has been right in his assessment of North Korea and what must be done:
Yeah, he’s not Barack Obama. President Donald J. Trump will do what needs to be done. What needs to be done is the obliteration of North Korea. Tomahawk missiles, B1 bombers, the old B-52 bombers, naval bombardment, destruction of the tiny North Korean navy, destruction of all electricity plants, destruction of all bridges, destruction of all artillery, destruction of all command and control centers, MOAB bombs on all underground facilities, must be done within the first half hour. It must be total obliteration. Maybe that’s what President Trump means by “fire and fury”:
President Donald Trump defied political and media critics of his “fire and fury” warning to North Korea, suggesting that perhaps it wasn’t a tough enough statement.
“Frankly, the people who were questioning that statement, was it too tough?” Trump asked reporters during a brief press conference at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey. “Maybe it wasn’t tough enough.”
Trump repeated his frustration with politicians failing to address the North Korea threat, vowing strength and resolve in the negotiations.
“What’s tougher than fire and fury?” one reporter asked.
“You’ll see. You’ll see,” Trump replied.
Another reporter asked Trump to address Americans who were currently “anxious” about Trump’s statement to North Korea.
Trump advised Americans to be “very comfortable,” adding that it should be North Korean leaders who should be worried.
“They should be very nervous,” Trump said. “Because things will happen to them like they never thought possible, OK?”
Cassius in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar noted “The fault dear Brutus is not in our stars, but in ourselves….” The American people understand that President Trump himself will do not needs to be done no matter what the stars proclaim. Whatever the stars portend, President Trump has a “rendezvous with destiny”:
* * * * * *
On the home front, President Trump has other enemies to contend with. Lou Dobbs is on the Trump Train and started a movement to #DitchMitch. After Mitch McConnell attacked the President as one who came in with “excessive expectations” President Trump moved to obliterate Mitch and throw him in a ditch:
President Donald Trump is suggesting that the Senate’s top Republican should step aside if he can’t pass Trump’s legislative agenda.
Trump says, “You can ask the question” about whether Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should remain in his position if he cannot pass a plan to repeal and replace health care, change the tax code and move an infrastructure proposal. [snip]
Trump has been sniping at McConnell for several days on Twitter, a reaction to McConnell’s earlier remarks that the president was new to Washington and doesn’t realize how difficult it is to pass legislation.
In the Swamp it is an “excessive expectation” that congress work until they get the job done. Congress is on vacation, not working. Get back to work you oafs:
President Donald Trump continued to needle Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for failing to pass an Obamacare repeal.
“Mitch, get back to work and put Repeal & Replace, Tax Reform & Cuts and a great Infrastructure Bill on my desk for signing,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Thursday. “You can do it!”
Earlier on Thursday, Trump challenged McConnell for failing to pass an Obamacare repeal.
“Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn’t get it done,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!”
Yesterday, Trump challenged McConnell on Twitter after the Senate majority leader criticized his “excessive expectations” about what could be done in Congress.
“Senator Mitch McConnell said I had ‘excessive expectations,’ but I don’t think so,” Trump wrote on Wednesday. “After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?”
Update: The Obama scandals and corruption we briefly describe below are barely getting attention. By the time the investigations to these crimes get going Barron Trump will be a thirty year old man. Instead of investigations and special prosecutors to root out real crimes the news today is that corrupt Mueller, with all his conflicts of interest, has impaneled a grand jury to investigate Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with the woman we discussed below, Natalia Veselnitskaya.
That this “leak” came from the Mueller investigation is no surprise. Mueller like his pal Comey likes illegal leaks.
The good news in all this? President Donald J. Trump is no weakling and will fight. Tonight President Trump is in West Virginia to welcome the Governor of West Virginia to the Republican Party as he switches his party allegiance.
(1) The Obama Dimocrat scandals continue to grow and eat at the entrails of Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Barack Obama. (2) Big Media attempts to ignore the many Obama scandals emerging like earthworms after a summer rain. (3) Big Media is facing its apocalypse:
It’s one of the peculiar paradoxes of the media today that the firm that sparked the anti-Trump resistance, and fueled the patriotism of those newly awakened to the dangers of Russian interference in American political institutions is working with companies intimately linked with Moscow. [snip]And yet the U.S. media is focused on the Great Kremlin Conspiracy, the fruit of what appears to be only one in a series of smear campaigns waged by Fusion GPS. Sure, the reasons are partly ideological—Trump is not the press’ preferred candidate. And financial—the daily campaign against Trump is driving traffic that print and broadcast haven’t seen in a long time.
The press has its hands tied. “If they report that the Russia dossier is probably nonsense,” said Halvorssen, “and Fusion GPS is running information operations across the media, then that calls into question all the other stories that Fusion GPS has fed journalists in the past. Why are so few journalists willing to look into Fusion GPS?”
In order to report honestly on the Trump scandals, a weakened press would have to report honestly on Fusion GPS—which would mean lifting the lid on the incompetence and malfeasance of their own institutions and colleagues, which would reveal a scandal as threatening to democracy as anything Trump has said or done. “Imagine if they subpoena Fusion GPS’s emails,” said a veteran Washington reporter, “there are going to be lots of journalists in there who’ve taken stories from them. Big names, senior figures in the field. It will look like an apocalypse.”
Most Americans are not aware that often Big Media “personalities” are secretly handed fully written stories by political operatives to which these indolent Big Media swine move a comma here and there before they hit the publish button. It is stenography, not journalism. The Fusion GPS scandal threatens to force this standard operating procedure and its variants onto the public consciousness.
The American people know something is wrong. The American people know that Big Media is not “free and independent” solely interested in providing needed information to the voting public. Fusion GPS will be the mechanism by which the public gets to understand that Big Media is indentured and owned by forces interested only in misinforming or corrupting the public understanding of issues Americans face.
How and why is this awakening? Trump. President Donald J. Trump. President Donald J. Trump has as his #1 mission the destruction of Big Media lies and distortions.
Big Media tried to destroy candidate Donald Trump during the primaries of 2016. Big Media failed. Big Media tried to destroy nominee Donald Trump during the 2016 elections. Big Media failed. Big Media continues to try to destroy President Donald J. Trump. Big Media will fail. Why? Because President Donald J. Trump fights, as do his appointments:
“The thing I see misleading is a year’s worth of stories that have been fueling a false narrative about this Russia collusion. And a phony scandal based on anonymous sources. And, I think if we’re gonna talk about misleading, that’s the only thing misleading I see in this entire process.” [snip]
“The Democrats actually colluded with a foreign government like Ukraine,” she pushed back. “The Democrat-linked firm Fusion GPS actually took money from the Russian government while it created the phony dossier that’s been the basis for all of the Russia scandal fake news.” [snip]
“The Clinton campaign chairman’s brother lobbied against sanctions on Russia’s largest bank and failed to report it,” Sanders added. [snip]
“If you want to talk about somebody who’s actually been tough on Russia, look at President Trump,” she said before stating that Trump wants “more fracking, more coal, more energy, a stronger military, a stronger defense. Those things aren’t good for Russia.”
Not since President Franklin Roosevelt’s embargo acts against the Empire of Japan has an American president so powerfully confronted a foe short of violent military action. President Donald J. Trump is engaged in a sort of clandestine undermining of Russia (and Iran) with his policies to Make America Great Again in energy production via fracking and oil drilling. Russia (and Iran) is fully dependent on energy exports to fuel it’s economy. Anything that undermines energy exports from Russia (and Iran) serves to destroy a fragile economy entirely dependent on energy (and vodka) exports. But don’t expect Big Media to explain any of this.
Looks like Washington and the mainstream media may have the Russia collusion story backward…. https://t.co/He6mrgLYH2
Fusion GPS. Whoa. If you think the unmaskings were nefarious, this is downright sick and evil. This group of journalistic lowlifes — sadly including three former Wall Street Journal reporters (the paper is hopefully doing an investigation of its hiring practices because of this) — promulgates disinformation for creepy Russian regime types and, lately, the hideous Venezuelan leaders currently starving millions of their own people to death. These “genteel scriveners” were the authors of the anti-Trump “dossier” containing the lies about Moscow hotel golden showers, etc. It’s hard to imagine anything worse than smearing in this manner someone who could become the leader of the free world, unless you hate the free world or, more likely in this case, are despicably greedy. The big question is who hired these guys. The leader of the group is thus far refusing to say. No wonder Democrats are in a panic. They should be. They’re the primary suspect and fingering the Dems on this one turns the whole Russiagate scandal on its head.
Wonder which journalists in D.C. were operating w/financial incentives to spread propaganda on behalf of Fusion GPS? pic.twitter.com/SKpdAciAGB
Legislators know and fear that their biggest obstacle is those who watch the “legislative sausage” being made because it is usually and ugly, bloody, process. Now Big Media faces it’s apocalypse as Americans see how Big Media narratives are crafted:
Trump Dossier Firm Worked With Media Outlets Now Giving The Firm A Pass
The opposition research firm behind the infamous Trump dossier, Fusion GPS, worked with several prominent media outlets to spread dirt on President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. Those same media outlets, which have enthusiastically pounced on every new detail regarding the Russia investigation, have been oddly uninterested in probing into the crucial role of Fusion GPS.
The British spy Fusion GPS hired to craft the dossier, Christopher Steele, leaned on anonymous Russian sources in crafting the dossier for Fusion GPS. Steele’s lawyers revealed in court filings that, in September 2016, Steele briefed reporters from The New York Times, The Washington Post, Yahoo! News, The New Yorker and CNN on behalf of Fusion GPS. Steele later held another meeting with reporters from the NYT, WaPo and Yahoo. The lawyers said that Fusion GPS attended these meetings with reporters and Steele, as TheDC’s Chuck Ross pointed out.
Fusion GPS, which is headed up by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson, was working for a Democratic ally of Hillary Clinton at that time, although that ally’s name is not publicly known.
Those same media outlets that worked with Fusion GPS to receive information on the Republican nominee now appear to be helping Fusion GPS stay out of the public spotlight.
The reason the Fusion GPS scandal is now a topic of discussion is the testimony of Bill Browder:
A British-American businessman previously targeted by Fusion GPS, Bill Browder, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday that “in the Spring and Summer of 2016 they [Fusion GPS] were receiving money indirectly from a senior Russian government official” for their work to undermine the Magnitsky Act, a human rights law fiercely opposed by Putin that sanctions Russian criminals. At the same time that Fusion GPS was crafting the dossier allegedly exposing the Trump campaign’s collusion with the Russian government, they were also working to advance Russian interests, according to Browder’s testimony.
Browder told the committee that Natalia Veselnitskaya, the same Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort at Trump Tower during the campaign, “hired Glenn Simpson of the firm Fusion GPS to conduct a smear campaign against me and Sergei Magnitsky in advance of congressional hearings on the Global Magnitsky Act.” The law is named for Sergei Magnitsky, a lawyer who represented Browder before Russian authorities jailed and killed Magnitsky after he exposed a massive fraud scheme. [snip]
The NYT, WaPo and CNN have all appeared uninterested in digging into Fusion GPS’ shady ties. The three outlets have combined for zero articles mentioning Fusion GPS since Browder’s testimony, despite the explosive allegations contained within it.
The only mention of Fusion GPS on CNN after Browder’s testimony on Thursday (and in the days since) came from Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who went out of his way in an interview Thursday morning to stress the seriousness of the matter, despite CNN asking zero questions about Fusion GPS.
“Fusion GPS was on the payroll, apparently, according to this guy of the Russian government. And I want to know what they did in terms of trying to compromise Donald Trump, who is now our president. So what should we learn from all of this? That the Russians were involved on both sides, they definitely tried to tip the scale against Clinton and for Trump. But the Fusion GPS organization that was trying to get the goods on Donald Trump was backed by the Russians,” Graham said.
CNN reporter Manu Raju tried to steer Graham back to talking about Trump, asking a question about Donald Trump Jr., but Graham returned to the subject to emphasize just how grave he believed the Fusion GPS situation to be.
“The GPS, Fusion GPS situation, the guy’s not coming. If we have to subpoena the people at Fusion GPS, we need to subpoena them. Because Mr. Browder has now accused them of — working for the Russians,” Graham said. “And at the end of the day, if that’s true, the Democratic Party is working with somebody who was working with the Russians, whether they knew it or not.”
Where is the Jeff Sessions Justice Department investigation of Fusion GPS?
The line of investigation is pretty clear at this point. (1) Russia was not happy with the Magnitsky Act which imposed sanctions on Russia. (2) Russia retaliated oddly with a ban on adoption of Russian orphans by Americans. (3) The Russian ploy was to undermine the sanctions via agents such as Natalia Veselnitskaya who pretended their goal was to help those poor orphans when the prize was removal of the sanctions on Russia imposed by the Magnitsky Act.
Big Media understands the existential danger exposure of Fusion GPS collusion means to their existence. Big Media does not want to let go of the nonsense collusion stories concocted against President Trump. But Big Media also understands that Fusion GPS is a story of Big Media collusion with Russia/Fusion GPS to destroy President Trump.
Big Media wants to continue to publish and broadcast lies about President Trump and Russia. But the apocalypse comes in the form of corrupt Obama Dimocrat Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Since March 5, 2017 we have called for a “truth commission” to uncover and prosecute the Obama scandals which plague our country like ebola.
In that article we mentioned the scandal which was at that time mostly ignored:
The three brothers have been involved in crimes, “multiple lawsuits”, “multiple mortgages”, and other dubious financial activity. The three Muslim brothers, one of whom is 22 years of age and began work in the House of Representatives when he was 20, somehow survived the supposedly onerous background checks that jobs which involve the national security require.
The three brothers could easily have sold top secret information for cash. Not that they needed it if they were legitimate normal workers. The 20 year old for instance was paid $160,000 a year (three times the average for IT staff). Abid got $161,000 and Imran scored $165,000.
We need a Truth Commission!
The story of the three Muslim brothers who worked for Obama Dimocrats in Congress had many troubling ties we wrote about at the time. There’s one speculation we made at the time that appears to be coming true:
Did the three brothers leak the DNC emails, not the Russians, as has so often been claimed by Barack Obama thugs who seek to protect their Muslim friends and blame Russia as their favored distraction? Did anyone stop to think that young Muslim brothers, their wives, and assorted Muslim friends, with dubious backgrounds and financial schemes, might be a problem to our national security? We need a Truth Commission.
It was Obama Dimocrats in the House that employed the three Muslim brothers. It is the Obama Dimocrats that thus far Big Media won’t discuss. It is Obama Dimocrats that thus far have escaped investigation. Why did Obama Dimocrats hire these dubious characters? Why did it take Obama Dimocrats so long to fire the three brothers after their activities became known? We need a Truth Commission, there’s a national security swamp to drain:
Although ignored by many at the time, our initial exploration of the three Muslim brothers was thorough at the time. Now, the story has exponentially grown and it threatens the Russia Big Media narrative. Indeed, as we speculated, it is very possible that the DNC emails were sold/leaked by the three Muslim brothers, not the Russians. And it gets worse. Much worse:
Imran Awan. The story of the Pakistani-born IT fraudster who had access (for years) to computer data and materials of over two dozen House Democrats plus Homeland Security and Foreign Affairs committees threatens to become one of the most extraordinary scandals of our time. If Awan is merely some low-life con cheating the U.S. government out of a few dollars (okay — four million), why are the Clintonistas so concerned they have assigned one of their key consiglieres to head his legal defense? Why did Deborah Wasserman Schultz keep this obviously seriously corrupt individual on her payroll for months until he was finally arrested at Dulles on his way to Qatar by the FBI and the Capitol Police? The possibilities are so many they could fill a book by themselves. But the summa is that we have been told ad nauseum to trust our intelligence agencies. All computer hacking roads lead to Russia. They have proof, they say, although they aren’t showing it to us. (It would compromise sources and methods, doncha know.) Well, I’m willing to admit the Russians are up to no good. They always have been. But I suspect there are a number of surprises in the sources of much of the hacking and some of the truth may be sitting under Imran Awan’s rock — or on his smashed hard drive he desperately wants back from the FBI. Let’s hope the road doesn’t somehow end up at Pakistan’s ISI. Or Hezbollah.
At this juncture we believe we have been grossly underestimating the need for special prosecutors. The three Muslim brothers scandal alone requires at least a dozen different investigations. For instance:
Pakistani IT Specialist’s Brother Met with Obama White House
As was reported recently, Wasserman-Schultz’ IT guy was arrested while trying to flee America. Moreover, Imran Awan wired almost $300,000 to his home country. Not exactly “walking around” money in Pakistan, as that’s enough to start a pretty good life. Speaking of “walking around money,” Awan had $12,000 in his pockets. But WAIT!
Awan’s wife had $12,000 on her when she fled the country too.
Debbie Wasserman-Schultz employed these Pakistani IT staffers and brothers.
The family was paid over $4 million dollars over the course of their employment even though they were accused of a cyber-security breach. Keep in mind the period America finds itself in. Multiple terror attacks, and concerns over refugee resettlement. Then there is that accusation of hacking by the Russians? Was it the Russians?
What’s more interesting is while other Democrats fired these Democrat-sanctioned hackers and spies, Wasserman-Schultz didn’t dismiss them until the day after one tried to flee the country. [snip]
What exactly would the people responsible for IT with the highest ranking Democrats know? And why didn’t this crackerjack team of spies IT professionals stop the Russians?
If you’re thinking what I’m thinking, that would make us both brilliant. Because the coincidence of “Russian interference” with our elections, and the DNC refusing to turn over their servers is uncanny. Add to it the intrigue of the Pakistani Muslims, and I see “Made for TV” movie.
I also see Democratic heads rolling soon. One Democrat said they were afraid to fire the Awans because they didn’t want to be perceived to be Islamophobic. Seriously? [snip]
And I think in the end we will learn that the Awans had information on DWS and others.
One of the brothers is on record meeting in the Obama White House for several hours.
A search of guests at the White House show that Imran’s younger brother Abid was a guest at the White House on Thursday, November 21, 2013. He arrived at 5pm and didn’t depart for 7 hours. He attended with another 17 individuals.
What was the IT Specialist doing at the White House for 7 hours after 5pm in 2013, why was he there, who was with him, and where was Obama?
This stinks of Obama.
Big Media has tried to misinform and distort the story of the three Muslim brothers and the DNC. But the facts that have thus far emerged scream out for a special prosecutor:
Debbie Wasserman Schultz finally fired Awan last Tuesday, the day after the FBI fingered him at Dulles Airport.
What took her so long? Well might you ask. McCarthy cuts to the chase: “This is not about bank fraud. The Awan family swindles are plentiful, but they are just window-dressing. This appears to be a real conspiracy, aimed at undermining American national security.” [snip]
In 2016, Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee wrote to the House appropriations subcommittee asking that their staffers obtain “Top Secret Sensitive Compartmented Information” clearances, spook-speak for the whole shebang. Guess who was working for many of the letter writers? Yep, Awan and his crew. Guess who the ranking member of the appropriations subcommittee was? Donald Duck? Close. Actually, it was Debbie Wasserman Schultz. [snip]
How do we explain the smashed hard drives that were recovered from the Awans’ former home last week? I think Mark Steyn is right to invoke Occam’s Razor: entia non multiplicanda sunt praeter necessitatem. We can leave high jinks to one side. “Why,” Steyn asks, “did Debbie Wasserman Schultz not do as her fellow congressmen did and dump the Awan clan as no longer politically convenient” back in February? Answer: “Because she was head of the DNC and thus Awan knew too much for her to cut him loose.”
How much did he know? Steyn reports that Awan had the password to her iPad and other access codes.
Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is coming under mounting pressure to explain why she kept an IT aide on the payroll for months after a criminal investigation was revealed, facing calls from Republicans to testify as well as a newly filed ethics complaint.
Wasserman Schultz, the Florida congresswoman who led the Democratic National Committee until last year, terminated Imran Awan’s “part-time” employment last week, when he was arrested at Dulles International Airport trying to fly to Pakistan. He was charged with a bank fraud count.
But he and other former IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar screen for months over concerns about possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in March, but Schultz kept him on, though he was barred from the House IT network. [snip]
The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), run by former U.S. Attorney Matthew G. Whitaker (a George W. Bush appointee), also filed a complaint to the Office of Congressional Ethics on Monday. The complaint urged an investigation, questioning why Schultz kept paying Awan after he was barred from the House computer system, noting “Members are directly responsible for ensuring their staff are only paid for official public work.”
“There is something quite amiss as to why Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz continued to use taxpayer funds to employ former technology staff member, Imran Awan, even months after he was barred from accessing the House’s computer systems and a number of her colleagues severed ties with Awan,” Whitaker said in a statement.
Big Media, Debbie Ditz Wasserman Schultz, Barack Obama want to pretend this is about everything except what it is. It is not about bank fraud:
There’s more than bank fraud going on here. In Washington, it’s never about what they tell you it’s about. So take this to the bank: The case of Imran Awan, Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s mysterious Pakistani IT guy, is not about bank fraud. [snip]
As you let all that sink in, consider this: Awan and his family cabal of fraudsters had access for years to the e-mails and other electronic files of members of the House’s Intelligence and Foreign Affairs Committees. It turns out they were accessing members’ computers without their knowledge, transferring files to remote servers, and stealing computer equipment — including hard drives that Awan & Co. smashed to bits of bytes before making tracks. [snip]
Congressional-staff salaries are modest, in the $40,000 range. For some reason, Awan was paid about four times as much. He also managed to get his wife, Alvi, on the House payroll . . . then his brother, Abid Awan . . . then Abid’s wife, Natalia Sova. The youngest of the clan, Awan’s brother Jamal, came on board in 2014 — the then-20-year-old commanding an annual salary of $160,000. [snip]
Why were they paid so much for doing so little? Intriguing as it is, that’s a side issue. A more pressing question is: Why were they given access to highly sensitive government information? Ordinarily, that requires a security clearance, awarded only after a background check that peruses ties to foreign countries, associations with unsavory characters, and vulnerability to blackmail. These characters could not possibly have qualified. Never mind access; it’s hard to fathom how they retained their jobs. [snip] Congressional Democrats hired Abid despite his drunk-driving conviction a month before he started at the House, and they retained him despite his public-drunkenness arrest a month after. Beyond that, he and Imran both committed sundry vehicular offenses. In civil lawsuits, they are accused of life-insurance fraud.
Democrats now say that any access to sensitive information was “unauthorized.” But how hard could it have been to get “unauthorized” access when House Intelligence Committee Dems wanted their staffers to have unbounded access? [snip]
Why has the investigation taken so long? Why so little enforcement action until this week? Why, most of all, were Wasserman Schultz and her fellow Democrats so indulgent of the Awans?
The probe began in late 2016. In short order, the Awans clearly knew they were hot numbers. They started arranging the fraudulent credit-union loan in December, and the $283,000 wire transfer occurred on January 18. In early February, House security services informed representatives that the Awans were suspects in a criminal investigation. At some point, investigators found stolen equipment stashed in the Rayburn House Office Building, including a laptop that appears to belong to Wasserman Schultz and that Imran was using. Although the Awans were banned from the Capitol computer network, not only did Wasserman Schultz keep Imran on staff for several additional months, but Meeks retained Alvi until February 28 — five days before she skedaddled to Lahore.
Strange thing about that: On March 5, the FBI (along with the Capitol Police) got to Dulles Airport in time to stop Alvi before she embarked. It was discovered that she was carrying $12,400 in cash. As I pointed out this week, it is a felony to export more than $10,000 in currency from the U.S. without filing a currency transportation report. It seems certain that Alvi did not file one: In connection with her husband’s arrest this week, the FBI submitted to the court a complaint affidavit that describes Alvi’s flight but makes no mention of a currency transportation report. Yet far from making an arrest, agents permitted her to board the plane and leave the country, notwithstanding their stated belief that she has no intention of returning.
Many congressional staffers are convinced that they’d long ago have been in handcuffs if they pulled what the Awans are suspected of. Nevertheless, no arrests were made when the scandal became public in February. For months, Imran has been strolling around the Capitol. In the interim, Wasserman Schultz has been battling investigators: demanding the return of her laptop, invoking a constitutional privilege (under the speech-and-debate clause) to impede agents from searching it, and threatening the Capitol Police with “consequences” if they don’t relent. Only last week, according to Fox News, did she finally signal willingness to drop objections to a scan of the laptop by federal investigators. Her stridency in obstructing the investigation has been jarring.
As evidence has mounted, the scores of Democrats for whom the Awans worked have expressed no alarm.
Alarm? From Obama Dimocrats who sheltered, protected, empowered these criminals?
Big Media will protect these criminals from scrutiny because Big Media is one of the criminals that require protection.
Update: Need more reasons for Shiva Ayyadurai and other pro-Trump reinforcements to go fight against the Swamp in the Swamp? Monday night big red letters on DrudgeReport headlined the news that the ObamaCare repeal and replace died a pathetic death. Um, good riddance.
It took the defection of two more GOP senators (Mike Lee, Jerry Moran) to make it clear to all that the Mitch McConnell/Paul Ryan schemes to pretend to repeal had succeeded to fail. The most unproductive congress in 164 years just hit Ryan bottom.
Are we sad, frustrated, giving up, or otherwise unhappy? Nope. We won’t mope. We’re actually kinda happy. The McConnell/Ryan pretend-to-repeal-and-don’t-really-replace legislative mess heralds what we always thought was the common sense proposal: Repeal ObamaCare first and foremost.
The McConnell/Ryan proposals were a big lie: Johnson’s grievance is with McConnell, who he claims assured senior GOP figures last week that Medicaid cuts planned by the legislation would ‘never happen’ because they were slated to come far in the future.
President Trump is now on board with what we advocated from the first: let ObamaCare collapse then force GOP do-nothings and the Obama Dimocrats to face political death. ‘More Republicans should just REPEAL failing ObamaCare now & work on a new Healthcare Plan that will start from a clean slate. Dems will join in!’ he predicted. Mitch McConnell is now forced, and has agreed, to a repeal ObamaCare bill.
In 2015 the GOP House and Senate passed a bill to repeal ObamaCare which Obama vetoed. It will be illuminating to watch as the very senators and congressmen that voted for ObamaCare repeal in 2015 knowing Obama would veto any such law argue in 2017 that they cannot vote for the very same repeal in 2017 because President Donald J. Trump will sign such a law. This will be the best test on who must be culled from the herd.
If GOP senators and congressmen vote against ObamaCare repeal because now they know President Trump will sign such a law they need to be culled from the ranks of government workers via a primary challenge against them. Bring in Shiva!
In politics, don’t ever give up or get frustrated. There are many ways to get to your goals. Angry at the Obama Dims? Disgusted with the Republican do-nothing establishment that hates President Donald J. Trump? Don’t mope. Fight, fight, fight.
How to fight? Send President Donald J. Trump reinforcements. We mean reinforcements to help – not more GOP establishment blowhards that are “fake pro-Trump” and really hate President Trump and his agenda. So who? Who? Who?
Shiva Ayyadurai in Massachusetts is a strong President Donald J. Trump supporter. Shiva Ayyadurai also knows how to fight.
Shiva Ayyadurai is also further proof of the changes in the GOP since Obama destroyed the Democratic Party of FDR and turned it into a leftist lunacy. Soon after the November 2008 elections, before the 2010 election wipeout for Obama Dimocrats we noted that the GOP was increasingly the party of diversity. We noted how the GOP, unlike the Obama Dimocrats, had male and female Latino governors (Sandoval in Nevada and Susanna Martinez in New Mexico), Governors Nikki Haley in South Carolina and Bobby Jindal in Louisiana both of Indian subcontinent heritage, Latino Senators Cruz and Rubio, women senators along with black congressmen and a senator. It was all part of the monumental Mistake in ’08:
The obvious mistake that the massive “creative class” brains made when they created the Obama monster in a Chicago laboratory was that Republicans would remain static in their strategies and candidates. The stupidity was to think that Republicans would go to sleep and stick to an outdated playbook. Strategists such as Teixeira managed to persuade the gullible “leadership” that even though White Americans would remain a potent electoral force these White Americans could be ignored if they were “lunch bucket Joe and Jane”. In other words, the White Working Class would be ignored and instead wealthy white liberals and their kids would be the only ones invited to participate in the New America.
Warren takes early salvo from GOP hopeful: ‘A real Indian can defeat a fake Indian’
Mumbai-born entrepreneur: ‘I sent her a DNA test kit for her birthday’
Well that line of attack certainly is an eye opener! But can the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts be replicated in 2018? The polls look bad for Pocahontas so yeah. But who is this Shiva guy?
Entrepreneur Shiva Ayyadurai has thrown down a rhetorical gauntlet to critics of his plan to unseat Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren in 2018: “Only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian.”
Fox Business Network invited Cambridge’s start-up king on air Wednesday to discuss his realization of the American dream as an immigrant in 1970. Mr. Ayyadurai said that in addition to his seven successful companies and multiple degrees from MIT, his resume is poised to include the role of U.S. senator from Massachusetts.
“I’m looking forward to going against Warren,” Mr. Ayyadurai said. “I know how these elites work. I know I can defeat her.”
The tech-minded businessman, who holds a 1982 federal copyright called EMAIL, added that he was looking forward to the State Convention in April 2018 and the Republican primary election in September.
“In Massachusetts, 46 percent of Democrats have said that Elizabeth Warren should not run,” Mr. Ayyadurai added. “So there’s a significant opportunity here. For me, defeating Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts is driving a bigger blow to these institutions of power right in the belly of the beast.”
But the Mumbai-born entrepreneur (his family moved to the U.S. when he was seven) also went for the conservative punchline regarding Ms. Warren.
“I think only a real Indian can defeat a fake Indian. I sent her a DNA test kit for her birthday and I was very sad she returned it. That’s the issue of a real Indian and a fake Indian, the truth, because there is a woman who actually checked off the box that she is Native American.”
Ms. Warren faced scrutiny in 2012 over disputed claims that she possesses Native American ancestry. She has been mocked by critics as “Pocahontas” and “Fauxcahontas.”
“I think it’s going to be a historic campaign. I think it’s going to reveal a lot of very, very important contradictions that are important for the American public to hear,” Mr. Ayyadurai said.
In Hinduism the god Shiva is one of the major deities. Shiva is the “destroyer and transformer” in Hinduism. Massachusetts might get a shiver from Shiva Ayyadurai and a political destroyer and transformer.
Shiva Ayyadurai is a strong supporter of President Donald J. Trump. Take a look. Send him a few dollars. Check out his website and fight #FakeIndian Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren. Check out Shiva Ayyadurai’s appearance with the tickled pink Stuart Varney:
According to a new WBUR poll of 508 Massachusetts voters, only 44 percent believe the Democratic firebrand, known for her outspoken critiques of President Donald Trump, “deserves reelection,” while 46 percent say voters should “give someone else a chance.”

President Donald J. Trump’s main goal is to Make America Great Again. To know how to Make America Great Again we have to understand where and when things went wrong. Bob Woodson of the Woodson Center recalls the civil rights battles of the 1960s and understands how the positive changes of those days have been turned into horror by obaminations such as Black Lives Matter. Here’s Bob Woodson on the Tucker Carlson show:
Black Lives Matter is part of a hypocritical race grievance industry, says Woodson. Inclusion not separation is what Woodson advocates. Black Lives Matter has “hijacked the movement”. The high black poverty rates of today is not a legacy of slavery and Jim Crow. Liberal academics made welfare a killer of the black community. The black family has been destroyed by liberal policies. Tell it brother!
Today President Trump begins his three week “made in America” focus on American jobs. President Trump will not only liberate the West. President Trump intends to Make America Great Again. President Trump needs everyone’s help to get the job done. President Trump needs the Bob Woodson and the Shiva Ayyadurai types as well as us to get the job of getting jobs done.
The best thing that can be “made in America” is to Make America Great Again.
We’re hiding under our pink covered beds. If you’re not hiding like us, you are in trouble. We’ll explain why we should all be hiding at the end of this article even as we munch on and savor our deep dark Belgian chocolates and sip some Champagne.
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is letting the Trump administration enforce its 90-day ban on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries, overturning lower court orders that blocked it.
The action Monday is a victory for President Donald Trump in the biggest legal controversy of his young presidency.
Trump said last week that the ban would take effect 72 hours being cleared by courts.
The justices will hear arguments in the case in the fall.
The lower courts and their orders that overturned Constitutional government are the big losers on this one – right alongside their jihadist Muslim terrorist brethren. Trump wins bigly.
The Supreme Court will hear the case sometime in the fall, long after the Trump travel ban has expired. We fully expect that with this UNANIMOUS Supreme Court decision President Trump will win again (and again, and again) on immigration issues. Make America Safe Again!
The now-deleted story, by investigative reporter Thomas Frank, was published Thursday and cited a single, unnamed source who claimed that the Senate Intelligence Committee was looking into a “$10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team four days before Trump’s inauguration.”
But by Friday evening, the story had vanished from CNN’s website. It was not immediately clear when the story was removed, but a tweet linking to the story, from CNN’s Politics account, was also deleted sometime Friday evening.
A source close to the network, who requested anonymity to discuss the matter, told BuzzFeed News earlier that the story was a “massive, massive [f***] up and people will be disciplined.” The person said CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker and the head of the company’s human resources department are “directly involved” in an internal investigation examining how the story was handled.
Giggly bigly! Trump hating CNN gets schlonged and the Trump hating lowlifes at Buzzfeed are the ones that report President Trump’s bigly win!
In wake of story retraction, CNNMoney exec editor sends memo to staff mandating all "Russia-related content" must be cleared by him or VP pic.twitter.com/2Y6QMZj1h5
Ha! We’re under our beds giggling, munching those deep dark Belgian chocolates, and gulping down some of that Champs.
Big Media is not alone as President Trump schlongs them. President Trump is now, get this, schlonging that fey loser Barack Obama – ON RUSSIA!!!!
The Trump hating, Bezos owned, Obama lovin’ Washington Post provided President Trump the opportunity to schlong and schlong again. The Post reported on Friday that Barack Obama “choked” (that’s a Trump word) in his response to the Russian alleged interference in the 2016 elections. So now President Trump, alleges “COLLUSION” by Barack Obama with Russia:
The reason that President Obama did NOTHING about Russia after being notified by the CIA of meddling is that he expected Clinton would win..
That’s a double schlong! President Trump not only turns the tables on the Big Media “collusion” narrative. President Trump declares that Obama purposefully “colluded” “obstructed”. Yeah, that Obama promise to the Russians, secretly captured by a hot microphone, that after the 2012 elections Obama would be more “flexible” (like a long time whore advertising the many positions his flexible body can contort into) fits right into the President Trump’s counterattack of today.
All this winning is why we’re hiding under our beds.
You should be hiding under your bed too (survival hint: take some dark Belgian chocolates and Champagne with you).
Consider this as to why you, like us, should be hiding under your beds: In our Hiroshima/Nagasaki article, we explained that the totalitarian left will never stop madly crazy attacking President Trump until their Hiroshima/Nagasaki moment arrives (which will be after the next elections at the earliest). In “Seven Days In June” we explained that the hysterical hair-on-fire naked fury crackpot all out frenzied leftist hatefest and lunatic asylum craziness against President Trump has not reached peak madness.
We are now concerned, and hiding under our beds, because it is very possible that we are about to witness full all out beyond description total insanity total hatred total zombie walking dead eat your intestines chew on your brains gouge out your eyes furious crackpot cray-cray! Yeah, Justice Antony Kennedy might retire this summer.
If Kennedy leaves, the totalitarian left will leave us all speechless and unable to describe with any measure, the level of their madness.
Hide under your beds. As the Trump victories pile up, the totalitarian left is about to explore the outer limits of madness. Hide. Bed. Chocolates. Champagne.
“As of today, the United States will cease all implementation of the nonbinding Paris accord,” Trump said during a White House Rose Garden announcement. Suggesting renegotiating re-entry was not a major priority, he said, “If we can, great. If we can’t, that’s fine.”
The two best arguments against the Paris Climate “Agreement”: 1) Why would anyone sign on to a treaty with the same creeps who won’t pay their dues to NATO? 2) The Paris Climate “Agreement” is not about climate. The Paris Climate Treaty is a globalist scheme for distribution of wealth.
We’ll add a third argument against the Paris Climate Treaty: 3) The Paris Climate Treaty is an anti-American creation of the German government aided and abetted by China and other “make America weak again” governments.
There are a lot of other arguments against the Paris Climate “Agreement”. But our top three arguments against the Paris Climate “Agreement” and President Donald J. Trump’s world-wide battle to Make America Great Again are the focus today.
If Europe loves NATO so much, why does the U.S. still bear the burden?
Trump hater Dougherty is not writing about the Paris Climate “Agreement”. But he does make the best argument against the Paris Climate “Agreement”. You don’t have to be an expert at much other than common sense and some basic knowledge about arithmetic and human interaction to understand the importance of this argument. Just ask yourself this one question: WHY SHOULD THE UNITED STATES STAY IN A PHONY TREATY/AGREEMENT WITH PHONY FRIENDS WHO WON’T PAY THE DUES THEY VOLUNTARILY PROMISED TO PAY TO ANOTHER ORGANIZATION THEY ALLEGEDLY LOVE?
If nations like Germany, who profess the great relevance and importance of NATO (No Action, Talk Only) won’t pay the required dues they voluntarily imposed on themselves to finance NATO, why does anyone believe they will abide by the Paris “Agreement” which requires the United States to once again bear the bulk of the burden and only makes “suggestions” for most every other party to the flim-flam? Easy answer for anyone with the slightest bit of common sense: If they won’t live up to their obligations to NATO, they won’t live up to their Paris Treaty obligations.
As to argument #2, indeed, The Paris Climate “Agreement” is a globalist scheme for distribution of wealth. Want proof? Take a look at what the “agreement” states:
To reach these ambitious and important goals, appropriate financial flows will be put in place, thus making stronger action by developing countries and the most vulnerable possible, in line with their own national objectives. [snip]
The Paris Agreement underwrites adequate support to developing nations and establishes a global goal to significantly strengthen adaptation to climate change through support and international cooperation.
The already broad and ambitious efforts of developing countries to build their own clean, climate-resilient futures will be supported by scaled-up finance from developed countries and voluntary contributions from other countries.
Governments decided that they will work to define a clear roadmap on ratcheting up climate finance to USD 100 billion by 2020 while also before 2025 setting a new goal on the provision of finance from the USD 100 billion floor.
Ms. Figueres said. “We have seen unparalleled announcements of financial support for both mitigation and adaptation from a multitude of sources both before and during the COP. Under the Paris Agreement, the provision of finance from multiple sources will clearly be taken to a new level, which is of critical importance to the most vulnerable.”
Yeah, right. A 100 billion dollar “floor” of payments to “underdeveloped” dictatorships and corrupt regimes. Then the 100 billion dollar “floor” of flowing “finance” will increase. Who will pay the hundreds of billions of dollars? It won’t be those “developed” countries that won’t pay their dues to NATO. It will be the United States that will be expected to pay most of the hundreds of billions of dollars.
What will be “gained” in temperature reductions from the Paris Agreement after corrupt regimes in “underdeveloped” countries get billions of American dollars? Other than the destruction of America, nothing on lowered climate:
In a new peer-reviewed paper, I measured the impact of all of the biggest carbon-cutting commitments being made before the summit. It shows that the current EU climate policy – the so-called 20/20 policy, which promised to cut emissions to 20 per cent below 1990-levels – will achieve very little. Even if the EU maintains its cuts all the way through the century and even if none of its cuts are exported (which for now seems wildly unrealistic), the reduction in temperature rise by the end of the century is a miniscule 0.026°C.
With the EU’s new promise to cut by 40 per cent by 2030, you might imagine that it would do a lot more to tackle global warming. But the effect – even if fully adhered throughout the century and with no CO₂ exporting – will be to reduce temperature rises by the end of the century by another 0.027°C.
And if we measure the impact of every nation fulfilling every promise by 2030, the total temperature reduction will be just 0.048°C by 2100. Even if we are overly optimistic and assume that every one of these promises would be not only fulfilled but extended for another 70 entire years, and there is no “CO₂ leakage” to non-committed nations, all the Paris promises will achieve is to reduce temperature rises by just 0.17°C by 2100.
The Paris Agreement is a globalist wealth transfer scheme. The globalists know they can’t openly declare “let’s give small corrupt countries we control hundreds/thousands of billions of dollars”. So the globalists slyly squeal “let’s save the environment by giving hundreds of billions of dollars” to corrupt regimes. The Paris “Agreement” is a tool to fool the gullible.
In this scam to “make America weak again” Angela Merkel of Germany is deeply involved.
In remarks just now in Sicily, Merkel showed her frustration with Trump not committing to Paris climate deal pic.twitter.com/MTD7rI4PdH
The globalists are in a rage that America has an American President who wants to Make America Great Again to deal with.
We have a suggestion for American President Donald J. Trump on how to deal with Germany: threaten to move or actually move American military bases from Germany to Poland and Hungary. With this threat, Angela Merkel who is up for reelection this year will stop her “make America weak again” attacks against President Donald J. Trump.
The Paris “Agreement” has many flaws. Or rather, in light of President Donald J. Trump’s grand action today, “had” many flaws.
There was no enforcement mechanism. The Paris “Agreement” embraced the notion that signatories to the “Agreement” could write their own rules and regulations and well as reports. This meant that the propaganda ministries of the signatory countries could write rubbish reports of their great actions while doing nothing even as the United States of America was looted.
China, under the Paris “Agreement” could pollute to it’s delight even as American industry was strangled. The United States under the Paris “Agreement” would once again find the court system used to attack its own citizens. Under the Paris “Agreement” lawsuits would be unleashed. The Paris “Agreement” would be used by America haters disguised as climate activists to attack American industry and workers.
The Paris “Agreement” would also exempt nations like China and India from punishments for violations of the non-existent requirements. The United States would bear all the burdens, to achieve nothing on lowered global temperatures, but would destroy the American economy.
Barack Obama knew this America hate trash could never pass the U.S. Senate as required by the Treaty Clause of the U.S. Constitution. That’s why Barack Obama declared this trash an “agreement”. Now the great President Donald J. Trump has trashed the trash excreted by Barack Obama.
Today great American President Donald J. Trump kept to his promise to Make America Great Again.
It’s all been worth it. In the wake of the Manchester terror attack, it’s all been worth it. To see AMERICAN PRESIDENT Trump in Israel, and Saudi Arabia, and hear him attack Muslim terrorism and the Persian Empire of Terror, Iran, it’s all been worth it. All the attacks against Trump voters and all the ugliness of Obama Dimocrats and their Russia mania, it’s all been worth it.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took a subtle yet significant swipe at Barack Obama’s foreign policy legacy without even mentioning the name of that former president.
“I want to tell you,” Netanyahu said to President Trump during a joint press conference Monday, “how much we appreciate the reassertion of American leadership in the Middle East.” Veiled as a compliment to Trump, the implication was a clear swat against Obama. [snip]
With his praise of the current president, Netanyahu expressed his opinion in the relative goodness of Trump and awfulness of Obama.
Where Obama tried negotiating with Iran, Trump has rattled his saber. And while Obama gave the Jewish state a cold shoulder, Trump has promised closer cooperation to avoid nuclear proliferation in the region.
“The United States and Israel can declare with one voice,” Trump said Monday, “that Iran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon, never ever, and must cease its deadly funding, training and equipping of terrorists and militias, and it must cease immediately.”
That’s notably different in tone and substance from Obama’s marquee foreign policy achievement. The Iran nuclear agreement, which the former president negotiated in 2015, keeps Iran from getting a nuclear weapon in the short run in exchange for more than $100 billion in sanctions relief from the U.S.
As both Netanyahu and Trump have criticized, that agreement does not prohibit Iran from enriching uranium and only lasts for about a decade.
In Saudi Arabia, President Donald J. Trump literally picked up a saber and rattled it as he danced. In Israel, the great American President Donald J. Trump laid waste to Barack Obama’s signature collusion with Muslim terrorists and the Persian Empire of Terror, Iran:
President Trump: “I just left, I will say, I just left Saudi Arabia. The King, we had an amazing two days and, their feeling towards Israel is really very positive. Tremendous progress has been made. I think a lot of that progress has been made because of the aggression of Iran, and it’s forcing people together in a very positive way. And if you look at King Salman, and Saudi Arabia, and others that I was with, UAE, and Bahrain, and Kuwait and so many others, it was something. It was very historic what took place over the last two days. But I could see a much deeper path to friendship with Israel and I think a lot of that is spurred on, whatever it takes, but a lot of that is spurred on by what’s happening with Iran. So progress has been made.
Prime Minister Netanyahu: I think that the fact that you have taken a very strong position on Iran, a different position, not only helps security but also helps propel the possibility of reconciliation and peace between Israel and the Arab world. And that will help reconciliation between Israel and the Palestinians. Of course not all, that I will like to discuss before the cameras, but I do look forward to our discussions which are pregnant with possibilities.
President Trump: You know with Iran, Iran should be very grateful to the United States because Iran negotiated a fantastic deal with the previous administration. A deal that is unbelievable from any standpoint. Some people don’t understand even how it could be even thought of. And instead of being thankful and saying “thank you”, because they were in serious trouble.
I think they would have failed, totally failed within six months. We gave them a life-line. And we not only gave them a life-line, we gave them wealth and prosperity. And we also gave them an ability to continue with terror, and with all of the things they’ve been doing.
Because, no matter where we go we see the signs of Iran in the middle east. No matter where we go. Whether it’s Syria where we were really forced to shoot the 59 missiles a few weeks ago. No matter what area we’re in we see… Yemen, Iraq, no matter where we are, we see the signs, every sign, whether it’s soldiers, whether it’s money and guns, it’s Iran.
And, instead of saying “thank you” to the United States, they now feel emboldened. Maybe they figure ‘the deal was so good we can do it every time’. They can’t do it, believe me. But it was a terrible, a terrible thing for the United States to enter that deal. And, believe me, Iran will never have a nuclear weapon.
JERUSALEM — U.S. President Donald Trump assailed Iranian aggression and military ambitions Monday on his first visit to Israel as the American leader, drawing quick approval from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Trump attacked the administration of former U.S. President Barack Obama for agreeing to the 2015 international deal restraining Iran’s nuclear weapons program in exchange for lifting economic sanctions against Tehran, a pact the Jewish state adamantly, but unsuccessfully, opposed.
“I want you to know how much we appreciate the change in American policy on Iran,” Netanyahu told Trump at the end of a day of meetings and ceremony. “I want want to tell you also how much we appreciate the reassertion of American leadership in the Middle East.”
Trump attacked Iran throughout the day, saying, “Instead of being thankful, saying thank you” for the nuclear deal, Iranians “now feel emboldened,” with signs of Tehran’s fighters, money and weapons in Yemen, Iraq and Syria. “We not only gave them a lifeline, we gave them wealth and prosperity. It was a terrible thing for the United States to enter into that deal.”
Respect for Israel and PM Netanyahu: Trump vs. Obama
Body language and rhetoric dramatically changed with new president in the White House
President Donald Trump’s warm reception in Israel this week cast a sharp contrast with the often visibly icy state of U.S.-Israeli relations under the previous administration.
Gone was the often stiff and hostile body language on display when former President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu met, replaced with frequent smiles and laughter.
“Just look at the footage you just showed. Look at the body language, look at the smiles,” said White House advisor Dr. Sebastian Gorka on Fox News Tuesday. “It’s so very different. How much different after eight years of Israel being shunned by the last administration?” he said.
“The smiles tell you everything,” Gorka said. “Our closest ally is now being treated as our closest ally in the Middle East,” he said.
U.S.-Israeli relations deteriorated significantly under the previous administration. Obama and his administration often criticized Israel over the issue of settlements, and his pursuit of a nuclear deal with Iran infuriated Israeli leaders.
The tension over U.S. rhetoric and policies often became personal.
“I have no doubt we’ll get along very well,” Netanyahu predicted following Barack Obama’s election in 2008. But by 2015, the Huffington Post was dissecting “The Worst Relationship Between A U.S. President And An Israeli Prime Minister Ever.”
In March 2010, a meeting between the two world leaders in the White House was widely reported to be disastrous.
“One Israeli newspaper called the meeting ‘a hazing in stages,’ poisoned by such mistrust that the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risk being eavesdropped on a White House telephone line,” reported the New York Post.
“Another said that the Prime Minister had received ‘the treatment reserved for the President of Equatorial Guinea,’” the Post reported.
“The Prime Minister leaves America disgraced, isolated, and altogether weaker than when he came,” the Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz said.
Obama — whose very first trip outside North America as President included a jaunt to Muslim countries in the Middle East — would not visit Israel until his second term in office.
JERUSALEM (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that shared concern about Iran was driving Israel and many Arab states closer and demanded that Tehran immediately cease military and financial backing of “terrorists and militias”.
In stressing threats from Iran, Trump echoed a theme laid out during weekend meetings in Saudi Arabia with Muslim leaders from around the world, many wary of the Islamic Republic’s growing regional influence and financial muscle. [snip]
Trump received a warm welcome in Riyadh from Arab leaders, especially over his tough line on Tehran, which many Sunni Muslim Arab states regard as seeking regional control.
In Jerusalem, in public remarks after talks with Israeli leaders on the first day of his two-day visit, he again focused on Iran, pledging he would never let Tehran acquire nuclear arms.
“What’s happened with Iran has brought many of the parts of the Middle East toward Israel,” Trump said at a meeting with President Reuven Rivlin. [snip]
“I want you to know how much we appreciate the change in American policy on Iran which you enunciated so clearly,” Netanyahu, who had an acrimonious relationship with former U.S. President Barack Obama, told Trump at his official residence. [snip]
In Jerusalem’s walled Old City, Trump toured the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and became the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest place where Israel allows Jews to pray in a city sacred to three religions.
Trump will have visited significant centers of Islam, Judaism and Christianity by the end of his trip, a point that his aides say bolsters his argument that the fight against Islamist militancy is a battle between “good and evil”.
The Persian Empire of Terror will continue to try to destroy President Donald J. Trump. In America, there are those who wish to destroy President Donald J. Trump too. In the middle east, and in America, the enemy, under different guises, comes from The Swamp.
According to excerpts of the speech released by the White House, Trump will call on Arab leaders to confront “Islamist extremism”, and portray fighting “terrorism” as a battle between good and evil.
“This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it,” the excerpts said.
“That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians.
“The nations of the Middle East cannot wait for American power to crush this enemy for them. The nations of the Middle East will have to decide what kind of future they want for themselves, for their countries, and for their children,” Trump was expected to say.
America hating, Jew hating, Islamist terrorist pal Barack Hussein Obama coddled, appeased, protected, Muslim terrorists. In his disgusting ahistorical speech in Cairo to the Muslim world Barack Obama distorted history and insulted Jews and the freedom loving West. Barack Obama to Muslim leaders was camel dung because of his cowardice and his appeasement of Muslim terror and calls for “understanding”. What Muslim leaders who want to fight terror (such as Al-Sisi) need is a strong American president. President Donald J. Trump is a strong American president who today Makes America Great Again on the world stage.
Saudi Arabia considered Barack Hussein Obama as camel dung. Saudi Arabia had more respect for a lame dried up camel than for Michelle Obama.
For years, Donald J. Trump mocked, along with other world leaders, the fey degenerate called Barack Obama. Donald J. Trump frequently declared during his presidential campaign that if he would ever visit a country as President and was disrespected by, for instance, the leader of that country not there to greet him, he would get back on Air Force One and leave.
Barack Obama visited countries, and leaders in places like Cuba and Saudi Arabia, sent the equivalent of a janitorial staff to give him a mop of pretend “welcome”:
Saudi king fails to meet Obama off plane at Riyadh airport [snip]
Saudi state television broadcast no live pictures of the US president’s arrival.
It was the US ambassador to Saudi Arabia and a local governor who met the American leader off the plane. [snip]
This comes in stark contrast to the reception of other high-profile guests, whom the 80-year-old King Salman greeted personally on the airfield.
Barack Obama protected the Saudis from 9/11 family lawsuits. Barack Obama bowed and scraped and licked the dung off Saudi shoes. Result? Barack Obama was held in utmost contempt by the Saudis. World leaders, as we wrote repeatedly, understood Barack Obama had less political weight than the feces of an ant.
There were two very different outcomes when two American presidents greeted the king of Saudi Arabia.
All eyes were on President Trump today as he arrived in the country for his first foreign trip.
Video shows the president stepping off the plane and greeting King Salman:
Trump stood up straight as Salman appeared to bow slightly.
Trump’s posture stands in stark difference to President Obama’s in the early days of his presidency.
Cameras captured Obama bowing to King Abdullah, contorting nearly to a 90-degree angle in what many called a moment of American weakness:
Simpering, bowing, scraping Barack Obama. Unbowed and proud President Donald J. Trump.
On Saturday, in Saudi Arabia, the frail octogenarian Saudi King traveled to the airport to greet with all respect, pomp, and circumstance, the POTUS with the Mostest for America – President Donald J. Trump.
$350 billion! Jobs, jobs, jobs! It’s not all about money however. President Trump will speak to the Muslim world on Sunday and unlike Barack Obama, President Trump will defend Western Judeo-Christian values. Among the values President Trump defends with his very presence and most importantly the presence of Melania Trump, is the rights of women. Yay Melania Trump!
As Melania Trump upholds her dignity and that of women, the American totalitarian left has hit a new low in degenerate debasement. The American left believes Muslims are the great feminists and that women covering up in shame and abasement is the new liberation. That is what leftist “feminism” has degenerated into. Disgusting:
Muslims Are the True Feminists [snip]
If we want to be respected as women and taken seriously in all our endeavors we should look to a new source; Muslim women. Muslim women, as well as Muslim men, see every body as a sacred temple, especially the female body. Opposed to exposing themselves, it is through modesty. When we think of modern feminists we should stray away from the new American trends and start looking to what we have always thought as a contradiction; Muslim feminists. [snip]
The first Muslim woman was Khadija, Mohammed’s first wife. Without her influence, Islam might not have emerged as successfully as it did. [snip]
Just this one example gives us a view on how true Muslim women are; outspoken, driven, certain and courageous, the epitome of a feminist.
So it’s no surprise to see Muslim woman today modeling themselves after these prominent female figures. Muslim girls look towards these instances of strength for guidance in this scary, patriarchal society. These modern women are not afraid to go against the grain in the name of their belief like wearing the hijab to covey their religious devotion. Hijab is the headscarf that is worn by Muslim woman and no; it is not supposed to be forced on them by their fathers and husbands. Wearing or not wearing the Hijab reflects a Muslim woman’s own a personal choice.
For me, this idea especially showcases feminism in America. With all of the pressures in our American society to have a certain physical allure; to have long, luscious hair, a skinny yet curvy body, flawless facial beauty, woman go through hell.
Far-Left Austrian President: All Women Must Wear Headscarves to Fight Islamophobia
Austria’s far-left president, Alexander Van der Bellen, has suggested that one day all women must wear headscarves to fight Islamophobia.
During a talk to students, Van der Bellen said that whilst be believes a woman should wear “whatever she wants”, should Austria’s “rampant Islamophobia continue, there will come a day when we must ask all women to wear a headscarf – all of them! – out of solidarity towards those who do it for religious reasons”.
Go to Hell degenerate leftists.
Fortunately for decent freedom loving Americans and the western world, Donald J. Trump is president and Melania Trump is the FLOTUS with the Mostest. No hijab or burkas for Melania Trump! Melania Trump in Saudi Arabia wore pants (super stylish jumpsuit), a stunning outfit with a wide gold belt, and her gorgeous hair flowing free and proud in the desert air. Pants!!! And the Saudi King shook her hand!!!
The Saudi King shook Melania Trump’s hand even though she is a woman proud to wear what she will and unashamed to let her hair perfume the dry winds of the Saudi kingdom. This is all quite unbelievable for the Obama Dimocrat vermin that thought President Donald J. Trump would not be welcome by Muslims.
President of the United States Donald J. Trump understands his interests are the interests of the United States first and foremost. President of the United States Donald J. Trump also understands that strength is respected especially in places like the Middle East and in Muslim cultures. The Saudis want a strong America with a strong American president who will fight against the Persian Empire of Terror – Iran.
Melania Trump wore jumpsuit pants, free-flowing hair, and a sphinx-like smile in the very patriarchal Saudi Arabia.
While we’re dishing fashion, lantern-jawed Michelle Obama and her football player musculature could never pull off the stunning outfit in which Melania Trump graced America before departing on Air Force One. Dayum, girlfriend, rock that skirt!
Like Melania, Ivanka Trump is on the trip and free from hijab imprisonment. The news that Ivanka Trump will participate in a women’s economic issues discussion with Saudi women is great news. Ivanka is Jewish by conversion. Her husband Jared is Jewish. Just two Jews in Saudi Arabia – President Donald J. Trump works miracles.
Speaking of fashion, one final off topic fashion point in regards to Drapes Comey. Was Comey taking fashion tips from Carol Burnett in Went With The Wind when he thought to camouflage himself with the Oval Office drapery?
Behind the drapes, and in front of the cameras, American leftist Big Media is consumed with attempts to take down President Trump. But as long as President Trump continues to work, work, work, to bring back jobs, jobs, jobs, and thereby Make America Great Again, Big Media will fail. President Trump is on the job and American allies such as Saudi Arabia are happy to see an America First President:
His arrival following a 6,700-mile flight was met with the pomp usually reserved for the likes of a Papal welcome in South America.
The president got the red carpet treatment – literally – and some airport workers took off their shoes before manicuring it with brooms in 97-degree heat.
The Saudi King later presented Trump with the kingdom’s top civilian honor, the gold King Abdulaziz medal, at the royal court.
There were 30 U.S. flags at the ready at the airport, a tiny fraction of the thousands that line streets and highways between the airport and the city center.
A 90-person Royal Saudi Air Forces honor guard practiced rifle drills and then stood at attention while Trump and his kingly escort ambled toward the terminal.
He heard an eight-bugle fanfare, watched a seven-jet flyover trailing red, white and blue smoke. And cannon fire. Lots of cannon fire, which didn’t cease until Trump and King Salman were safely inside.
On Sunday, President Trump will address leaders from a dozen Muslim majority countries. The American leftist will go crazy, as usual. Then it is on to Israel for a REALLY friendly reception.
Not through cowering, not through apologies, not through bowing, this is how President Trump will Make America Great Again.
Update II: From our perspective, the news just gets better and better. The latest news, now that President Trump is on his way to Saudi Arabia to conduct the work of president, is that Comey the Clown has agreed to testify after Memorial Day to an open hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
So why are we smiling? For one thing, we will enjoy the moment when Comey the Clown is asked about his relationship to Robert Mueller. Gregg Jarrett has done some great work on this question:
Gregg Jarrett: Why Robert Mueller should resign as special counsel
Robert Mueller has a serious conflict of interest that should disqualify him from serving as special counsel.
He has had a long and close relationship with someone who will surely become a pivotal witness –James Comey. [snip]
How can Americans have confidence in the results if they know the special counsel may harbor a conspicuous bias? They cannot. The conflict inevitably discredits whatever conclusion is reached. It renders the entire investigatory exercise suspect, and it only elevates the controversy surrounding it. [snip]
The law governing the special counsel (28 CFR 600.7) specifically prohibits him from serving if he has a conflict of interest in the case. The rule has been interpreted to mean that even the appearance of a conflict is sufficient for disqualification.
A conflict of interest is a situation in which an individual has competing interests or loyalties. The conflict itself creates a clash between that individual’s self-interest or bias and his professional or public interest. It calls into question whether he can discharge his responsibilities in a fair, objective and impartial manner.
Identical rules govern prosecutors who, for example, must recuse themselves from handling a case against a person with whom they have worked or had a personal relationship. The same would be true if a prosecutor had a close relationship with a witness in the case. The prior association raises the real or perceived possibility of prejudice or favoritism which is contrary to the fair administration of justice.
So what exactly is Mueller’s conflict? He and James Comey are good friends and former colleagues who worked hand-in-hand for years at the FBI. Agents will tell you they were joined at the hip. They stood together in solidarity, both threatening to resign over the warrantless wiretapping fiasco involving then-Attorney General John Ashcroft in 2004.
Comey regards his predecessor as a mentor, while Mueller considers Comey his protégé. When Comey was appointed to succeed Mueller as FBI Director, both men appeared together and were effusive in their praise of one another. Their relationship is not merely a casual one. It is precisely the kind of association which ethical rules are designed to guard against.
We’re gonna need a special prosecutor to investigate the special prosecutor. And we need a whole lotta special prosecutors. Hooray!
Gregg Jarrett’s article should be read in its entirety to see the many questions Comey will be asked after Memorial Day. We want answers, lots and lots of answers. Leftist Trump hater Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone has lots of good questions we want answered too:
How Did Russiagate Start?
Amid the chaos of James Comey’s firing, new questions about the timeline of his fateful investigation [snip]
If Comey felt the existence of his investigation was so important that he he had to disclose it to DNI Coats on Coats’ first day in office, why didn’t he feel the same need to disclose the existence of an investigation to Clapper at any time between July and January?
Furthermore, how could the FBI participate in a joint assessment about Russian efforts to meddle in American elections and not tell Clapper and the other intelligence chiefs about what would seemingly be a highly germane counterintelligence investigation in that direction?
Again, prior to last week, Clapper had said he would know if there was a FISA warrant issued on this matter. But then on April 11th, law enforcement and government officials leaked – anonymously, as has been the case throughout most of this story – that the FBI had obtained a FISA warrant for surveillance of Trump associate Carter Page.
So what’s going on here? [snip]
What exactly is the FBI investigating? Why was it kept secret from other intelligence chiefs, if that’s what happened? That matters, if we’re trying to gauge what happened last week. [snip]
Why can’t we be told what’s going on? Operational secrecy would be a believable excuse, were it not for the fact that so much else has been leaked. [snip]
A lot of our civil liberties protections and rules of press ethics are designed to prevent exactly this situation, in which a person lingers for extended periods of time under public suspicion without being aware of the exact nature, or origin, of the accusations.
It’s why liberal thinkers have traditionally abhorred secret courts, secret surveillance and secret evidence, and in the past would have reflexively discouraged the news media from printing the unverified or unverifiable charges emanating from such secret sources. But because it’s Donald Trump, no one seems to care.
We should care. The uncertainty has led to widespread public terror, mass media hysteria and excess, and possibly even panic in the White House itself, where, who knows, Trump may even have risked military confrontation with Russia in an effort to shake the collusion accusations. All of this is exacerbated by the constant stream of leaks and hints at mother lodes of evidence that are just around the corner. It’s quite literally driving the country crazy.
The public deserves to know what’s going on. It deserved to know before the election, it deserved to know before the inauguration, and it deserves to know now.
Americans need answers. The political establishment swamp is attempting to destroy President Trump and all Americans need to see what the “deep state” and political establishment is capable of when their power is threatened. The more the political establishment swamp tries to destroy President Trump however, the closer they are to their own destruction.
We have one answer today we did not have earlier in the week. We now know who the leaker of the Comey Memos is. It was Comey’s good friend Benjamin Wittes. Wittes in a long blog article provides a breadcrumb trail into the questions that must be asked of Comey the Clown. In his article, Wittes describes how Comey has personal animus against President Trump. Wittes describes how Comey the Clown tried to use blue curtains to camouflage himself so that President Trump would not notice him. Wittes describes how Comey the Clown despised President Trump. Wittes also describes how Comey loved Barack Obama, the man that actually stopped Comey from doing what he thought was a good idea.
In other words, Comey the Clown, the Director of the F.B.I., despised President Trump even as Clown Comey created F.B.I. investigations that few can explain and which have no reason for being. And now, a bestie friend of Comey the Clown leads an investigation which will focus on Comey the Clown’s circus act. Comey the Clown must be forced to produce all the memos, of which there are many, which Comey wrote. These must include memos written after meetings with corrupt former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and every meeting with corrupt Barack Obama.
We must first light up the swamp then fight the swamp before we can drain the swamp. The swamp thinks it is destroying President Trump. All the swamp has done is emit its methane stink and light itself up for all to see. That’s why we continue to smile.
Special Prosecutor #14 – Clinton Foundation pay to play, pay for influence, Uranium One collusion, what did Hillary know, when did she know it? Seize all correspondence relating to possible collusion and coordination between State Dept and CFoundation, Bill, Hillary, and their staff and associates. Ditto for profiteering in Haiti. Were Hillary’s State Dept disclosures accurate, timely and complete? Do they shake hands with the correspondence, account balances fund transfers and Clinton Foundation 501(c)(3) filings? Did CFoundaiton behaviour disqualify for tax exemption? Are retroactive fines and asset forfeitures in order? Or worse?
Special Prosecutor #15 – Weaponizing of the IRS. Get to the bottom of Lois Lerner and White House coordination, the stonewalling asswipe John Koskinen and all their cronies. Someone needs to pay for the hell they visited upon a private citizen running a small family business turned activist, persecuted by a corrupt government for trying to do the right thing, whose riveting testimony should have put Lois Lerner and Eric Holder behind bars.
Special Prosecutor #16 – Obama campaign 2008 blatant disregard for campaign finance laws, reckless acceptance of foreign monies without limit. Overriding software flags and disclosure requirements, online funds acceptance from foreign donors, false reporting.
Special Prosecutor #17 – Turn over every rock on Eric Holder and Fast and Furious and its subsequent cover-up. Give the gun runners immunity and take down that smug sociopath Eric Holder.
Special Prosecutor #18 (two for one)– Criminal weaponizing of the EPA and Dept of Interior. Ken Salazar’s falsification of expert testimony to shut down the offshore drilling industry. Collusion and falsification of rulemaking to put the coal industry out of business. [snip]
Special Prosecutors #, # and #… Huma Abedin’s multiple jobs and paychecks. Pelosi family real estate corruption and profiteering from acquisition of Presidio government property. Obama Justice Departments illegal bypass of explicit statutes and court orders on immigration. Planned Parenthood’s illegal 501(c)(3) exemption. Obama administration illegal thwarting of FOIA requests.
At least for starters. Much more where that came from. Drain the damn swamp!!
Let’s have many many special prosecutors! Fight fire with fire! Drain the swamp!
The leftist totalitarians want veto power over the voters and they use the deep state to try to overthrow a president the voters elected. Fortunately President Trump is a fighter and Trump voters are fighters too.
We are happy. We like the latest news. Yes, like many after the latest of the ceaseless Big Media/Establishment attacks against President Trump, we mostly turn off the TV news and almost never even bother watching Fox News (maybe that’s why they have fallen to third place in the ratings after years of being #1). But overall, we like what is happening. As we wrote previously in praise of the clarity of war:
Real wars, like a good thunderstorm, clear the air. We need a real war. We need several real wars. Let’s go to war.
Let Trump Be Trump! We thought President Trump should have begun to wage all out war from the first day of his presidency. But President Trump wanted to try other options. President Trump wanted to play nice. President Trump wanted to work with the establishment. It was a nice try, but its time to end the nice guy act because nice guys finish last.
On March 5 of this year we called for a “truth commission”. America really needs a “truth commission”. Lot’s and lots of “truth commissions”. We also need special prosecutors. Lots and lots of special prosecutors.
In our March 5 call for a “truth commission” we made some mistakes. Some of the truth commissions we asked for should really be special prosecutors. Back in March we noted the three Muslim brothers who allegedly stole intelligence information from their workplace – which happened to be the U.S. Capitol. We need a special prosecutor to prosecute the three Muslim brothers as well as potential crimes of Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Joaquin Castro, Tammy Duckworth and other Obama Dimocrats who at the very least are guilty of negligence. Special prosecutors #1 and #2.
In that same article we called for a special prosecutor to investigate Barack Obama. Make that special prosecutorS to investigate Barack Obama. Did Barack Obama “wiretap” Donald J. Trump, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul? That’s special prosecutor #3.
What about the story of Barack Obama and the bribes from Syrian crook Antoin “Tony” Rezko? Did the Syrians use Rezko to blackmail Obama into his disastrous Syrian “policy”? Special prosecutor #4.
Did Iranian Valerie Jarrett secretly assist the Iranian government? Special prosecutor #5.
President Donald J. Trump tried to move forward with his agenda and let Obama wallow in his misery. That was a strategic and tactical mistake. Barack Obama is a cancer on the presidency and on America. President Donald J. Trump must remove the cancer in its entirety.
The Russia nonsense? All the noise about Russia has been a way for Barack Obama to undermine President Trump.
We detailed all these potential crimes back in March. As we wrote back then, President Trump was and is entirely too kind and unforgiving. No more Mr. Nice Guy. Special prosecutors please, President Trump!
Seth Rich, slain DNC staffer, had contact with WikiLeaks, say multiple sources
The Democratic National Committee staffer who was gunned down on July 10 on a Washington, D.C., street just steps from his home had leaked thousands of internal emails to WikiLeaks, investigative sources told Fox News.
A federal investigator who reviewed an FBI forensic report — generated within 96 hours after DNC staffer Seth Rich’s murder — detailing the contents Rich’s computer said he made contact with WikiLeaks through Gavin MacFadyen, a now-deceased American investigative reporter, documentary filmmaker, and director of WikiLeaks who was living in London at the time.
“I have seen and read the emails between Seth Rich and WikiLeaks,” the federal investigator told Fox News, confirming the MacFadyen connection. He said the emails are in possession of the FBI, while the stalled case is in the hands of the Washington Police Department. [snip]
The federal investigator, who requested anonymity, said 44,053 emails and 17,761 attachments between Democratic National Committee leaders, spanning from January 2015 through late May 2016, were transferred from Rich to MacFadyen before May 21.
On July 22, just 12 days after Rich was killed, WikiLeaks published internal DNC emails that appeared to show top party officials conspired to stop Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont from becoming the party’s presidential nominee. That controversy resulted in Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigning as DNC chairperson. A number of Sanders supporters refused to back party nominee Hillary Clinton, and some subsequently formed groups to work against Clinton and the party.
WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange has stopped short of identifying Rich as the source of the emails, but has taken a keen interest in the case, and has not denied working with Rich.
“WikiLeaks has decided to issue a US$20k reward for information leading to conviction for the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich,” the organization announced. [snip]
“My investigation shows someone within the D.C. government, Democratic National Committee or Clinton team is blocking the murder investigation from going forward,” Wheeler told Fox News.
A DNC staffer who it is alleged transferred thousands of emails to Wikileaks was killed in a mostly crime free affluent Bloomingdale neighborhood for a “robbery” yet neither his wallet, cell phone, keys, watch, nor $2000 necklace was taken from him. No run of the mill criminal is that incompetent. Special prosecutor #9.
The Seth Rich murder reminds us that the DNC refused to allow the F.B.I. to see the computer servers allegedly hacked by Wikileaks. Special prosecutor #10.
Back to Seth Rich, after he was shot D.C. police arrived at the crime scene in three minutes. Seth Rich was conscious. The police had automatic recorders on them yet none of those recordings have been released nor what Seth Rich told them released to the public. Footage from a security camera on a market on the corner has not been released either. D.C. police cannot be trusted. Special prosecutor #11.
Obama Dimocrats call for special prosecutors when there is no evidence or suggestion of a crime other than in their fevered imaginations. There is certainly plenty in the Seth Rich murder to warrant a special prosecutor especially under the low standards of Obama Dimocrats.
Report: Justice Scalia Believed Supreme Court was Being Surveilled by Obama (VIDEO)
Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, went on FOX Business Network on Monday to discuss allegations Senator Rand Paul and another senator were under surveillance by the Obama administration.
Napolitano also dropped a bomb on the Obama administration spying on the US Supreme Court.
Judge Napolitano: Justice Scalia told me that he often thought the court was being surveilled. And he told me that probably four or five years ago…If they had to unmask Senator Paul’s name to reveal a conversation he was having with a foreign agent and the foreign agent was hostile to the United States they can do that. That’s not what he’s talking about. They’re talking about unmasking him when he’s having a conversation with his campaign manager when he’s running in the Republican primary.
During the discussion Judge Napolitano also said Barack Obama could be subpoenaed to testify if he viewed the unmasked intelligence.
Special prosecutor #13: not Seth Rich, but the ghost of Marc Rich, is all about Comey:
It was Comey that closed down the Marc Rich investigation in June 21, 2002 (the Twitter date is incorrect and we post the correct date). It was Comey that shut down the Hillary Clinton investigation in 2016. Comey was also the deputy counsel to the Senate Whitewater Committee. And it is Comey that requires a special prosecutor to untangle his connections:
Former Bush AG On Comey’s 2007 Brush With Scandal: ‘Jim’s Loyalty Was More To Chuck Schumer’
This isn’t the first time James Comey placed himself at the center of a partisan attempt to oust a top Republican. He did the same thing in 2007. [snip]
In fact, the current episode is not the first time Comey and his associates plotted to oust a sitting Republican official through highly orchestrated political theater and carefully crafted narratives in which Comey is the courageous hero bravely fighting to preserve the rule of law. To understand how Comey came to be FBI director in the first place, and how he operates in the political arena, it is important to review the last scandal in which Comey had a front-row seat: the 2007 U.S. attorney firings and the fight over the 2004 reauthorization of Stellar Wind, a mass National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance program designed to mitigate terrorist threats in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.
It’s a long story that merits a full reading – by a special prosecutor!
As to the latest Comey narrative dictated to and published by the New York Times this is what we recently wrote, before the latest “it’s over for Trump” hysteria:
Throughout the presidential campaign in 2015/2016 then candidate Donald J. Trump spoke to huge rallies of supporters who shouted “Lock Her Up!!!” Once candidate Donald J. Trump won the election because of his victories in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin, President-Elect Donald J. Trump’s heart softened, along with, some would argue, his head. No longer did President-Elect Donald J. Trump want to “Lock Her Up!!!” President-Elect Donald J. Trump sweetly declared that he did not want to see his vanquished opponent dragged off to prison in an orange outfit which few can pull off fashion-wise.
So is it possible that President Trump sweetly questioned whether Mike Flynn had suffered enough and that he did not want to “Lock Him Up”? Yeah, it’s possible and not a crime nor obstruction of anything but Chuck Schumer’s bowels.
Big Media is in “peak meltdown” against President Trump. The Obama Dimocrats are in full hate against President Trump. The Republican establishment continues to passive-aggressively attack President Trump and even openly oppose President Trump:
Earlier Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he’s prepared to block Trump on many of his proposed budget cuts and won’t support major tax cuts that add to the deficit. Nor would he commit to building Trump’s border wall.
That McConnell stab in the back sent the stock markets reeling downwards. Senator Jeff Flake and other GOP creeps offered snarky attacks. Speaker Paul Ryan (something is wrong with that boy) remained the passive-aggressive poster boy against President Trump. Up and down, the GOP establishment guns are aimed at the political outsider that is now President.
Typically, Newt Gingrich slaps down McConnell and Paul Ryan (something is wrong with that boy). Newt reminds them all that 2018 is coming:
Newt Gingrich tells GOP Congress to fight for Trump, or else Democrats will take power
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a close ally of President Trump, said it’s time for Republicans in Congress to either “surrender or fight” for the president. But surrender, he said, would bring House Democrats and their leader, Nancy Pelosi, to power.
“Republicans in general — not just Trump — are in a crossroads,” Gingrich said in an interview. “And if they don’t get their act together, Pelosi is going to become speaker and she’s going to impeach Trump. That’s how big the stakes are.”
Gingrich presumes that the GOP wants to be in the majority. There is an argument to be made that Paul Ryan (something is wrong with that boy) and McConnell are more comfortable with Obama Dimocrat control than outsider President Trump.
While nervous nellies and pearl clutchers clutch pearls nervously, we smile at all this.
We smile because although President Trump was correct to try to work with the establishment, we suspected that would never work well for him. That time of niceness is over. Others suspect that it is time for Trump to be Trump and rally his friends to him:
When you talk to Trump loyalists, they tell you that the president is surrounded by a slew of opportunist, conniving, disloyal staffers who are serving themselves and not the man who won on Election Day.
One Trump transition official griped to me Tuesday, “He left all the people who like him out of the White House.” [snip]
My understanding, though, is that much of the staff is skeptical towards if not outright hostile to the president. And the consequences of the shared dislike have been devastating, among them a slew of leaks that has kept the administration on the defensive and unable to pursue the agenda of the president. Trump is hardly able to have a conversation or meeting at the White House that doesn’t somehow get retold to the press within days. The more embarrassing the scoop, the better. [snip]
The president has also been ill-served by holdovers from the previous president, whose allegiances do not align with the president’s own. [snip]
To be sure, there are plenty of people who both love and respect Trump. But for some odd reason they are outnumbered in this White House.
As the transition official recommended, “[Trump] needs to put in the people he can trust, the ones who were there with him from the beginning.”
“He brought in the swamp,” the official added.
What will President Trump do? President Trump will do what he always does. Fight:
President Donald Trump turned a Coast Guard commencement into a media-bashing exercise on Wednesday as he returned fire on news outlets accusing him of sharing classified information and interfering in an FBI investigation.
‘No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly,’ Trump protested. ‘You can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams,’ the president said.
He added: ‘I guess that’s why I won.’ [snip]
‘The people understand what I’m doing, and that’s the most important thing,’ he contended. ‘I didn’t get elected to serve the Washington media or special interests. I got elected to serve the forgotten men and women of our country, and that’s what I’m doing.’
‘I will never stop fighting for you, and I will never stop fighting for the American people. ‘
Trump was presented with a ceremonial saber during the commencement exercises.
As he returned to his seat, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly was heard on an open mic telling him: ‘Use that on the media, sir.’
Update: Happy Birthday Melania! We’ll celebrate your birthday when we have more time – after the tech hamsters fix our comment log-in problems.
While we wait to celebrate, there is lots of news on topics we wrote about in the original article below. The big surprise today is a potential order on withdrawal from NAFTA. This potential NAFTA withdrawal is likely more art of the dealing. President Trump this week imposed stiff duties of 3% to 24% on Canadian soft lumber in an effort to “level the playing field” for American lumber companies. A potential NAFTA withdrawal is a Trump art of the deal Trump card to move matters along more favorable lines to the U.S.
As to North Korea warmongering, fear is growing that NK is shrinking their nukes to make it easier to place them on missiles to attack the United States. President Trump, as promised, invited all 100 senators to the White House for a briefing on the North Korean threats.
We won’t make any dirty jokes about Li’l Kim’s li’l missile – we’re too busy beating the tech hamsters to get them to fix the comments section.
The war for the West is on. After the opening moves, all the chess pieces are in place.
In America the modern day Paul Revere and Winston Churchill, combined into one Donald J. Trump is now fully engaged after almost 100 days in the Oval Office. In Europe, whatever happens in the second round of voting, Marine Le Pen finds herself at Poitiers, ready to refight the Battle of Tours. In Asia, the American aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson is engaged in military exercises alongside Japanese warships, soon to be joined by the USS Michigan and other mighty American warships, as they all get ready for a bloodletting in the Korean peninsula. Even Barack Obama is back from vacation with the rich and famous ready to make more money by flim-flaming the most gullible on the left.
Chess players and Churchill get it: “This is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end, but it is perhaps the end of the beginning.”
The French election results are good news. While it is true that Macron, a globalist pawn, is likely to win the second round of the election in France; while it is also true that Marine Le Pen is not a favorite of ours because she is more socialist than many understand; while it is also true that Marine Le Pen will now face the full brunt of the French political establishment and all the institutions of the French Republic; while it is also true that all the polls show defeat for Le Pen and victory for globalist pawn Macron… there are good tidings in the results from the election in France.
The good news as we reflect on the revolutionary election in France? First giant bit of good news is that the establishment political parties are defeated. Yes, Macron is a globalist pawn but Macron ran as a pretend “outsider” because that is the only way to win. We explained this in July 2015 in regards to the “mystique” of candidate Donald J. Trump:
Despite all these ideological attacks and corporate desponsorship attacks, and Big Media attacks, Donald Trump is growing in popularity with the voters. Why? We explain in simple English the Donald Trump mystique:
WHEN YOU ARE IN A SNAKE PIT YOU DON’T CARE WHO HANDS YOU A STICK.
We’ve been warning about this for the longest time. In recent elections in so-called “democratic” countries – the voters are being ignored. In election after election, voters vote for an establishment political party – then once in power the political party they voted for stabs them in the back. Witness the 2014 elections in the United States in which the Republican Party won elections based on opposition to Barack Obama then once in cozy offices they pull out all the stops to assist Barack Obama to pass ObamaTrade. This happens over and over and over.
Eventually voters catch on and they decide to vote for the biggest motherf*cker around who will do what they want. The voters find themselves in a snake pit, surrounded by vipers, and they reach up to grab whatever stick is handed to them.
In Europe, extreme right wing parties increase in popularity. Why? Because the voters find themselves in a snake pit – betrayed by the political parties they vote for based on lies. Eventually the voters say “Fu*k you motherf*ckers, Fu*k you” and Marine Le Pen gathers strength in France, Denmark goes right wing, and the rallies in Germany grow and grow. In many of these cases the issue is immigration and illegal immigration.
The voters trapped in the snake pit learn.
Second bit of good news from the revolutionary elections in France? Marine Le Pen is one Muslim terrorist attack from leading the French Republic.
The Socialist Party’s official candidate Benoît Hamon came sixth with a paltry 6.2 per cent of the vote, meaning the two major French parties mustered less than 27 per cent of the vote.
The two finalists offer France two very different visions of Europe and the world, with Mr Macron billing himself as the progressive versus conservatives, and Ms Le Pen as the patriot versus the globalists.
On Europe, he wants to further beef up the euro zone, while Ms Le Pen intends to leave the euro and hold an in-out referendum on EU membership within six months of taking power.
Most of the defeated contenders instantly called on their supporters to vote for Mr Macron, with Mr Fillon warning that Ms Le Pen would lead France “to ruin and European chaos”. [snip]
From his Paris headquarters, an ecstatic Mr Macron, 39, an ex-investment banker and economy minister, said: “We are clearly turning a page of French political life.”
His pole position vindicated his huge bet to leave the government of Socialist president François Hollande a year ago to found his own movement, En Marche! (Onwards!), on a “neither Left nor Right” platform.
Many predicted the bid by a political novice who has never held elected office would burst like a bubble of champagne Socialism.
Speaking from her stronghold in Hénin Beaumont, a former mining town in northern France which has an FN mayor, Ms Le Pen insisted: “The first step that will lead the French to the Elysée has been taken.”
“Either we continue on the path of total de-regulation, offshoring, mass immigration, free movement of terrorists, the reign of big money. Or you choose the France of borders that protects your identity,” she said.
“It is time to liberate the French people.”
Marine Le Pen, flawed as she is, with economic policies we disagree with, is a latter day Joan of Arc. She is rallying the French nation to defend itself. Whether she wins or loses in the second round of elections, Marine Le Pen has set the terms of the argument that must be discussed in France and in all the West. For Marine Le Pen, as we wrote in that July 2015 when “it’s over for Trump” was conventional wisdom, the issue is immigration, and the Muslim soft invasion of Europe.
As in the Battle of Tours, Marine Le Pen is fighting the invasion of Europe by Muslim culture, ideology, and population. The actual military Battle of Tours fought off an armed invasion. The battle Marine Le Pen wages is thus far political, cultural, ideological, and the military aspects are restricted to Muslim terror bombings. Marine Le Pen is one Muslim terror attack away from becoming the official leader of the French nation. But whatever happens on the electoral front, Marine Le Pen will eventually win the argument and the modern battle because her analysis of France invaded is obvious to all that are willing to see the terrorist attacks and the population invasions for what they are.
In France, we are at the end of the beginning.
In America too, we are at the end of the beginning.
Even as we celebrated our 10 year anniversary, President Donald J. Trump will celebrate his first 100 days as President this coming Saturday. President Trump will not only celebrate this milestone on day 100. Because Big Media planned one of their Trump-hate orgies, this one known as the White House Correspondents Association Dinner, on the same Saturday – President Trump with his 100 day celebration schlonged the Big Media animals. It is a joy to behold.

Agenda: Shortly after Donald Trump won the election, House Speaker Paul Ryan said that Republicans had to “go big, go bold, and do things.” So far, the GOP has not delivered.
“They have the House, they have the Senate, they have the presidency — and nothing’s happening,” lamented PJ Media co-founder Roger Simon earlier this week. “Nothing, that is, that Donald Trump doesn’t do by himself. … The Republicans in the legislature are a disgrace.”
Congress did pass, and Trump signed, 13 bills to undo last-minute Obama administration regulations. And the Senate approved Trump’s Supreme Court pick. But what about actually advancing long-awaited Republican legislative priorities, like ObamaCare repeal and tax cuts? Nada. [snip]
That is, after all, what’s happened in the past when one party gained control of the White House after securing both the House and Senate. Lawmakers rushed to enact key pieces of their agenda that had been bottled up by the opposition, or that the president ran on. [snip]
There’s plenty of blame to go around for the GOP’s lack of achievements so far. But Ryan has been the biggest disappointment, since the House is where things get rolling.
Ryan earned his reputation for his ability to dive into big issues and produce thoughtful, innovative conservative reforms. So far, his ability to act aggressively and unify his caucus around anything has been sorely lacking.
If Ryan can’t figure out how to do this, and soon, he should consider handing the Speaker’s gavel to someone who can “go big, go bold, and do things.“
It is the end of the beginning. This week, with the first “skinny” budget due in order to avert a government shutdown, President Trump will have to take on the Paul Ryan establishment head-on. Already, Big Media wants to help Paul Ryan shut down President Trump and close the door on his great big beautiful wall:
Trump’s Wall Demands May Decide Whether 100th Day Is a Shutdown [snip]
Trump’s biggest demand is a Democratic deal-breaker: money for his long-promised border wall with Mexico. Democrats hope he’ll blink to avoid an embarrassing milestone for a new president trying to prove he can govern. A partial shutdown would start on Saturday, Trump’s 100th day in office.
“The Wall is a very important tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and many others)!” Trump wrote Monday on Twitter.
There is an out for both sides — a short-term spending plan that would provide another week or so for negotiations after the deadline early Saturday.
“We feel very confident the government’s not going to shut down,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Monday, although he said he wouldn’t guarantee it. The spokesman wouldn’t say whether the president was willing to shut the government down over funding for the border wall. [snip]
Right now, each side is dug in. And Trump is making things more complicated, not less. At the same time as budget talks intensify, he’s pushing House Republicans to re-start work on an Obamacare repeal-and-replace bill after the last one imploded in March when conservatives walked away.
Trump’s also planning to announce at least the broad parameters of a tax overhaul on Wednesday that seems sure to have plenty to annoy Democrats, including likely tax cuts for corporations and high-earners.
On top of that, Trump insists he won’t go quietly even if Republicans and Democrats cut a deal. [snip]
Republicans may not be willing to allow the government to shut down over the wall.
“I wouldn’t risk a trillion-dollar funding bill for a $3 billion wall,” Representative Tom Cole, the Oklahoma Republican who sits on the House appropriations and budget committees, told MSNBC Monday. “There’s another way, another time to get this.”
Through it all, Trump has sounded upbeat, saying he thinks negotiations are in good shape to avert a shutdown.
The Democrats don't want money from budget going to border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members.
President Trump is attacked by Big Media because he wants to fulfill his campaign promises. President Trump is under attack by Big Media and the rest of the political establishment because he wants the congress to work, actually work, not just go on vacations they call “recesses”.
The Michigan is armed with around 150 Tomahawk missiles, with a range of about 1,000 miles.
All 100 U.S. senators will be briefed on North Korea at the White House late afternoon Wednesday. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will do the briefing, according to a Pentagon spokesman.
Tuesday is Army Day in North Korea and U.S. intelligence is expecting some kind of “firepower display.” North Korea has continued its show of defiance, detaining a third U.S. citizen, Tony Kim, on Saturday.
The North has also continued its barrage of aggressive language, threatening the Vinson — its forces are “combat-ready to sink a U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier with a single strike,” state-run media bragged.
However, Bill Richardson, the former New Mexico Governor who has also served as U.N. Ambassador, has previously negotiated prisoner releases with North Korea, and he suggested that the taking of detainees might indicate there’s a “path forward” with North Korea. Prisoner releases in the past have led “to at least a dialogue.”
“They use…these detainees from the United States as bargaining chips,” he told CBS News. “They always want something in return.”
Porcine Bill Richardson demonstrates the problem with Obama Dimocrats. Instead of expressing outrage at the capture of American citizens to be used as pawns, the squealing Richardson thinks this is good news because North Korea can now use a hostage to get “something in return”. But North Korea is dealing with President Donald J. Trump not the fey weakling Barack Obama.
The Obama loving Politico today reports, on Obama’s hidden Iran deal giveaway. Barack Obama infuriated the Justice Department, with his release from prison, as part of the Iran deal, men considered to be “threats to national security”. The Muslim men Barack Obama released from prison include three who illegally procured for Iran microelectronics for cruise missiles, a man serving an eight year prison sentence for “conspiring to supply Iran with satellite technology and hardware”. Obama also removed a $10 million jury imposed penalty for money received from Iran by the former prison inmate. Obama also “dropped charges and international arrest warrants against 14 other men, all of them fugitives” wanted by Interpol. Not only that, Barack Obama removed “Interpol red notices and dismissed any charges against 14 Iranians”. Barack Obama protected, aided, and abetted the Persian Empire of Terror and assorted terrorists interested in acquiring nuclear weapons.
“That may be about to change” reports Obama loving Politico. Why? Because President Donald J. Trump, that’s why.
For Barack Obama, revealing reports such as the one from Politico are the end of the end.
For President Donald J. Trump, it is the end of the beginning. There is lots more winning to come.
