Obama Legacy of Big Government Waste, Fraud, Abuse, Corruption, Scandals and as Biggest Failure to America:
http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CREC-2006-03-16/pdf/CREC-2006-03-16-pt1-PgS2236.pdf Senator OBAMA. (speaking). Found on page 2 of 6.
March 20, 2006: This was the last stand-alone debt limit vote on which then-Senator Obama voted. He
was one of 48 members to vote against the increase, which passed with 52 votes.i Obama said: “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”ii ii Sen. Obama, Congressional Record, S.2237-8, 3/16/06 http://www.gpoaccess.gov/crecord/retrieve.html
At the time, Senator Obama was urging Congress not to tolerate an increase that would bring the debt ceiling to $9 trillion. Thus, Democrats will soon demand that the debt ceiling be raised, lest the sky fall. When they do, they will be asking for a significant boost in a ceiling that is already EXTREMELY higher than the one Barack Obama said was “a sign of leadership failure” years ago.”

http://quadcitysun.com/2011/08/24/obama-version-2008-adding-4-trillion-in-debt-is-unpatriotic/ August 24, 2011 Yesterday the Quad City Sun reported that the national debt has increased $4,247,000,000,000 since President Obama’s inauguration, a new record for the rate of growth. As Matt Cover at CSNNews.com reports: “as a presidential candidate in 2008 Obama criticized then-President George W. Bush for adding $4 trillion to the national debt over EIGHT years, saying it was ‘unpatriotic’ and also ‘irresponsible’ to saddle future generations with such a large national debt.
At a campaign event in Fargo, North Dakota on July 3, 2008, Obama declared:
“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child.” Watch & learn…OWEbenedict & his Democraps are 100% more ‘unpatriotic’ and ‘irresponsible’ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kuTG19Cu_Q&feature=player_embedded

http://edsitement.neh.gov/lesson-plan/anti-federalist-arguments-against-complete-consolidation Anti-federalist Brutus summarized the issue thus: “The first question is…whether the thirteen United States should be reduced to one great republic…or whether they should continue thirteen confederated republics, under the direction and controul of a supreme federal head for certain defined national purposes only?” The result, Anti-federalists believed, would be a powerful tyranny, in which the national government exercised its virtually unlimited powers to oppress the people and deprive them of their liberty.
Ezekiel 38:10-12(NIV) 10 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: On that day thoughts will come into your mind and you will devise an evil scheme. 11 You will say, “I will invade a land of unwalled villages; I will attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people—all of them living without walls and without gates and bars. 12 I will plunder and loot and turn my hand against the resettled ruins and the people gathered from the nations, rich in livestock and goods, living at the center of the land.[a]”
Nehemiah 4:13-23 (NIV) 13 Therefore I stationed some of the people behind the lowest points of the wall at the exposed places, posting them by families, with their swords, spears and bows. 14 After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.” 15 When our enemies heard that we were aware of their plot and that God had frustrated it, we all returned to the wall, each to our own work. 16 From that day on, half of my men did the work, while the other half were equipped with spears, shields, bows and armor. The officers posted themselves behind all the people of Judah 17 who were building the wall. Those who carried materials did their work with one hand and held a weapon in the other, 18 and each of the builders wore his sword at his side as he worked. But the man who sounded the trumpet stayed with me. 19 Then I said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “The work is extensive and spread out, and we are widely separated from each other along the wall. 20 Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there. Our God will fight for us!” 21 So we continued the work with half the men holding spears, from the first light of dawn till the stars came out. 22 At that time I also said to the people, “Have every man and his helper stay inside Jerusalem at night, so they can serve us as guards by night and as workers by day.” 23 Neither I nor my brothers nor my men nor the guards with me took off our clothes; each had his weapon, even when he went for water.[a]
2 Chronicles 26:14-20 (NIV) 14 Uzziah provided shields, spears, helmets, coats of armor, bows and slingstones for the entire army. 15 In Jerusalem he made devices invented for use on the towers and on the corner defenses so that soldiers could shoot arrows and hurl large stones from the walls. His fame spread far and wide, for he was greatly helped until he became powerful.
16 But after Uzziah became powerful, his pride led to his downfall. He was unfaithful to the Lord his God, and entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense. 17 Azariah the priest with eighty other courageous priests of the Lord followed him in. 18 They confronted King Uzziah and said, “It is not right for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the Lord. That is for the priests, the descendants of Aaron, who have been consecrated to burn incense. Leave the sanctuary, for you have been unfaithful; and you will not be honored by the Lord God.” 19 Uzziah, who had a censer in his hand ready to burn incense, became angry. While he was raging at the priests in their presence before the incense altar in the Lord’s temple, leprosy[a] broke out on his forehead. 20 When Azariah the chief priest and all the other priests looked at him, they saw that he had leprosy on his forehead, so they hurried him out. Indeed, he himself was eager to leave, because the Lord had afflicted him.

In the wake of Donald Trump’s stunning White House victory, radio host Rush Limbaugh wasted no time attacking President Obama and Democrat policies Tuesday, calling Trump’s win “a total repudiation” of Barack Obama’s presidency. “It was a total repudiation of the Obama presidency and every aspect of it. It was a total repudiation of the Democrat Party by the people I always describe as those who make this country work,” Limbaugh said during his post-election analysis Wednesday. “It’s a full repudiation of Obamacare(DemocrapCare) . It’s a full repudiation of OWEbama economics.”
1) Nearly Doubling The National Debt: Let’s see, what was it that Barack Obama said about our debt back in 2008 when he was trying to convince Americans to vote him into office? 2) Unleashing The Genie From The Nuclear Weapons Bottle In The Middle East: 3) Facilitating Illegal Immigration: 4) Encouraging Racial Polarization: 5) Losing A War We Had Already Won In Iraq:
9) Obama committed numerous impeachable acts. In 2014, Andrew C. McCarthy, former Assistant US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, laid out 7 impeachable crimes committed by Obama, some of which I listed above. They were:
A- The President’s Willful Refusal to Execute the Laws Faithfully and Usurpation of the Legislative Authority of Congress.
B- Usurping the Constitutional Authority and Prerogatives of Congress.
C- Dereliction of duty as Commander-in-Chief.
D- Fraud perpetrated against the American people.
E- Obama’s illegal immigration policies.
F- Justice Department’s alleged failure to execute the laws faithfully.
G- Undermining the constitutional rights of the American people.
I’m sure that over the course of the next couple of decades, there will be volumes written about how Barack Obama was by far the worst president in American history, but I don’t have the time or space to list them all here.
To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln: It’s a good thing the left(Democraps) loves the poor---they’ve made so many of them. The left often invokes the name of the poor. They claim to do so much of what they do to help the poor. But it appears they just want their votes. Leftist policies to help the poor have been routinely shown to fail the poor because they worsen the families of the poor. And the family, by God’s design, has been repeatedly been shown to be the key to upward mobility.
Obama’s magic pen was busy in his last days signing pardons and granting clemency to drug dealers, terrorists, and traitors alike. If you destroyed lives, Barack Obama wanted to set you free. Setting aside the idea of drug dealers, it’s the release of traitor Bradley Manning and terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera with which I have a problem. Former President Bill Clinton sold a pardon to fugitive tax cheat Marc Rich, who’d fled the country rather than face justice.
As with Obama, Clinton and his party never faced voters’ judgment of their actions because they were taken after the election. That is why there should be a change in the process, not the power, when it comes to the president’s ability to pardon and free prisoners. The Constitution should be amended to limit the window of time in which a president can exercise this power. Should a president win a second term, this power is restored immediately. If they should lose, it shall not return until their successor assumes office.”
Owebenedict. On Dec. 17, 2014– exactly 48 hours after Obama announced his new Cuba policy, convicted Communist murderer/spy Gerardo Hernandez was released and flown first-class to Cuba. For months prior to the Obama-Castro deal that released the Communist murderer, the families of the Americans he murdered were repeatedly assured by Obama’s State Department. that no such shameful deal would ever take place.Often they made this promise face to face with the grieving families, as documented in this video where Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen confronts Obama’s State Department. with their bald-faced lies and relentless treachery against U.S. citizens. Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony has got nothing on this.
(Owebenedict & democrap’s so smart diplomacy, meanwhile China develops more dangerous weapons) In what defense officials say represents a dramatic shift in Beijing's nuclear strategy at a time of growing tensions with the United States, China tested a new version of a long-range missile with 10 warheads, The Washington Free Beacon reported on Tuesday. The test of the DF-5C missile is significant, because it demonstrates that China is boosting the number of warheads in its arsenal and could alter the strategic balance, especially as it strives for a second-strike capability. Two officials familiar with reports of the missile test said it was carried out last month and was monitored closely by U.S. intelligence agencies.

October 22, 2016 -DONALD J. TRUMP DELIVERS GROUNDBREAKING CONTRACT FOR THE AMERICAN VOTER IN GETTYSBURG Download PDF Presents 100-Day Plan To Make America Great Again – For Everyone
Gettysburg, PA: Today, in historic Gettysburg, PA, Donald J. Trump presented a game-changing plan for his first 100 days in office. This revolutionary “Contract with the American Voter” will ensure that America’s economy is revitalized and citizens are protected. “I’m not a politician, and have never wanted to be one. But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I knew I couldn’t stand by and watch any longer. Our country has been so good to me, I love our country, I felt I had to act,” said Mr. Trump in his address.
Click link:. Urge Congress to support a bold, conservative agenda during President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.
May 18, 2016 - Today Donald J. Trump released the much-anticipated list of people he would consider as potential replacements for Justice Scalia at the United States Supreme Court. This list was compiled, first and foremost, based on constitutional principles, with input from highly respected conservatives and Republican Party leadership. Mr. Trump stated, “Justice Scalia was a remarkable person and a brilliant Supreme Court Justice. His career was defined by his reverence for the Constitution and his legacy of protecting Americans’ most cherished freedoms. He was a Justice who did not believe in legislating from the bench and he is a person whom I held in the highest regard and will always greatly respect his intelligence and conviction to uphold the Constitution of our country. The following list of potential Supreme Court justices is representative of the kind of constitutional principles I value and, as President, I plan to use this list as a guide to nominate our next United States Supreme Court Justices.”
As President, Donald Trump will fulfill that sworn duty, vetoing legislation that exceeds Congressional authority, taking actions as Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief that are consistent with his constitutional role, and nominating Judges and Supreme Court Justices who are committed to interpreting the Constitution and laws according to their original public meaning. He will defend Americans' fundamental rights to free speech, religious liberty, keeping and bearing arms, and all other rights guaranteed to them in the Bill of Rights and other constitutional provisions. This includes the Tenth Amendment guarantee that many areas of governance are left to the people and the States, and are not the role of the federal government to fulfill. The Constitution declares that as Americans we have the right to speak freely, share and live out our beliefs, raise and protect our families, be free from undue governmental abuse, and participate in the public square.
Donald Trump's transition team has set up his official transition website -- GreatAgain.gov -- https://www.greatagain.gov/ where they've posted a 10-point plan for immigration reform. Many leading advocates on our side across the states have expressed alarm that this plan has left out most promises for cuts in legal immigration. The plan mirrors the goals Trump discussed during his August immigration policy speech, but there are some key omissions from the original plan posted to his campaign website for more than a year before being replaced with the 10-point plan. You can read Trump's original plan here.
The 10-point plan places heavy focus on what we would call his "red-meat" campaign promises -- building a wall, ending sanctuary cities, and canceling Pres. Obama's executive amnesties. While it includes turning off the jobs magnet, completing the biometric entry-exit system, and reforming legal immigration, it lacks the details contained in his earlier promises
FBI Director James Comey and then-CIA Director John Brennan -- both appointed by President Barack Obama -- issued public warnings over the past two years about a terrorist threat to the United States that demanded a rational response from the president. Donald Trump has now provided one. "We judge," Brennan said, "that ISIL is training and attempting to deploy operatives for further attacks. ISIL has a large cadre of Western fighters who could potentially serve as operatives for attacks in the West. And the group is probably exploring a variety of means for infiltrating operatives into the West, including refugee flows, smuggling routes and legitimate methods of travel." Three months after Brennan warned that the Islamic State was likely looking at "refugee flows, smuggling routes, and legitimate methods of travel" to send terrorists West, Comey testified in the House Homeland Security Committee. "They will not all die on the battlefield in Syria and Iraq," Comey told that committee on Sept. 27, 2016. "There will be a terrorist diaspora sometime in the next two to five years like we've never seen before." "(W)hen ISIL is reduced to an insurgency and those killers flow out," said Comey, "they will try to come to Western Europe and try to come here to kill (you & your loved ones) innocent people. We have to keep our eye on it and be ready for it." This was not the first time Comey testified to this.
(democrap fundamental transformation) Dozens of Syrian refugees already living in the Unites States may have ties to terrorism and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is downplaying it, claiming federal agents missed “possible derogatory information” about the immigrants due to “a lapse in vetting.” Among those who slipped through the cracks is a man who failed a polygraph test after applying to work at a U.S. military installation and another who communicated with an Islamic State leader. the Obama administration was very generous in granting citizens of Muslim nations special amnesty protections and residency benefits in the U.S. During a five-year period, Obama’s DHS issued around 680,000 green cards to foreigners from Muslim countries, according to the agency’s figures. Somalia, Yemen, Syria and Libya were among the nations. In 2015 Judicial Watch reported on a special “humanitarian” amnesty program offered to illegal aliens from Yemen, an Islamic Middle Eastern country well known as an Al Qaeda breeding ground. In 2015 the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) confirmed that individuals with ties to terrorist groups in Syria tried to gain entry to the U.S. through the refugee program and that the program is “vulnerable to exploitation from extremist groups seeking to send operatives to the West.” Before that the director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Matthew Emrich, admitted during a congressional hearing that there’s no way to adequately screen Syrian refugees because the Syrian government doesn’t have an intelligence database to run checks against. Additionally, FBI Assistant Director Michael Steinbach conceded that the U.S. government has no system to properly screen Syrian refugees.
This attack is the 93rd Islamist terrorist attack or plot against the U.S. homeland since 9/11 and the 12th plot or attack this year. Including this attack, 14 successful Islamist terrorist attacks have occurred on U.S. soil since 9/11, five of which have been in 2016 alone. With Artan also appearing to have been radicalized here in the U.S., the total number of homegrown plots rises to 82 of the 93. While the threat of complex, overseas-planned or supported terrorist attacks is still real (as evidenced by attacks in Paris and Brussels), the trend in the U.S. has been toward more basic and improvised attacks by homegrown lone wolves.
(OUR current Immigration laws if enforced!!) The president has released a statement, saying that the repeal of the policy was an effort to further normalize relations with Cuba. Obama said that the policy was "designed for a different era." Now, Cubans who reach the United States and "do not qualify for humanitarian relief" will be removed from the country, just as migrants from other nations are treated. With this change we will continue to welcome Cubans as we welcome immigrants from other nations, consistent with our laws.
In a courtroom exchange that took place Friday, Feb. 3, with Department of Justice lawyer Michelle Bennett, federal Judge James L. Robart, asked, “How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals from those seven countries since 9/11”?
“I don’t know the specific details of attacks or planned attacks,” said Bennett, who is from the Department of Justice’s Civil Division. “The answer to that is none, as best I can tell,” said the judge. A preliminary report published by WND a day later showed Robart was clearly wrong – travelers and immigrants from the seven countries have indeed been involved in the murders of Americans and other heinous crimes. “I’m not sure what this judge was thinking but he clearly wasn’t in touch with the facts when he issued his decision to block President Trump’s temporary block on travel from these seven countries,” said Leo Hohmann, author of the new investigative book “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad.” Hohmann pointed out that it’s not only terrorism that has been a problem with regard to the resettlement of Third World refugees. The number of sexual assaults is also mounting. America is headed down a suicidal path – but it’s a subtle invasion. Get all the details in Leo Hohmann’s brand new book “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and Resettlement Jihad,” available now at the WND Superstore. Meanwhile, the new report, compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that at least 72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump’s vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks. While the Obama administration refused to provide any government accounting of terror cases over the last eight years, in June 2016, the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, then chaired by new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, released a report on individuals convicted in terror cases, using only open sources. The report found that 380 out of 580 people convicted in terror cases since 9/11 were foreign-born.
The information compiled includes names of offenders, dates of conviction, terror group affiliation, federal criminal charges, sentence imposed, state of residence, and immigration history. The United States has admitted terrorists from all of the seven dangerous countries.
Kirsanow, an attorney in Cleveland and former member of the National Labor Relations Board, said illegal immigration is both a short-term and long-term problem for young black males. “What happens is you eliminate the rungs on the ladder because a sizable number of black men don’t have access to entry-level jobs,” Kirsanow said. “It is not just the competition and the unemployment of blacks. It also depresses the wage levels.” A U.S. Civil Rights Commission study in 2010 determined immigration had a disproportionate impact on black Americans
Tom Mitchell is a resident of Sterling Heights whose family has been there since 1965. He’s seen the city’s transformation over the past couple of decades under the control of what he calls “progressives.” He avoids the world “Democrat” because the city’s elections are technically nonpartisan. “I feel that with the left taking over, they are destroying this community. I don’t want to become another Dearborn or a Hamtramck. And our elected officials are enabling this takeover,” he said. Hamtramck, just a few miles south of Sterling Heights, became the nation’s first city with a Muslim-majority city council in 2016, and a large portion of Dearborn resembles a Middle Eastern country with signs in Arabic and women walking the streets with their faces veiled.
He said it’s not a matter of discrimination. Churches have been denied building projects in the past because their sites were too close to residential housing. They didn’t get the federal government to sue the city; they simply picked another site.
“I truly believe this one man, Mr. Sessions, has the power to throw out any consent decree that was engineered by Obama’s Department of Justice. That is our hope,” Mitchell said
One of the options is to simply lower the ceiling on refugee resettlement for fiscal 2017, which began four months ago on Oct. 1.
Trump has already partially exercised this option in his first executive order when he lowered the annual ceiling from 110,000 refugees set by Obama to 50,000. Interestingly, this was the one part of his executive order that was not struck down by the lawsuits filed in Washington state and Minnesota. There have already been 34,225 refugees enter the U.S. in fiscal 2017, meaning about 16,000 more are allowed to enter between now and Oct. 1. The vast majority of them, 77 percent, are coming from four of the seven countries listed in Trump’s executive order – Syria, Somalia, Iraq and Sudan. By cutting the ceiling to 35,000, Trump would effectively end refugee resettlement for the rest of the fiscal year extending over the next seven and a half months. That would allow his administration to decide on a better vetting system and determine how high to set the ceiling for fiscal 2018. The Refugee Act of 1980 gives the president the sole authority to set the ceiling on annual refugee numbers. All he is required to do is send a letter to Congress notifying them of the change. “Basically you let Congress know along with a couple of agencies of the federal government,” said Jordan Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice. Sen. Tom Cotton in his new immigration bill has put forth a plan that would cut in half the overall number of green cards issued per year while doing away with the diversity visa lottery.
Thus, this system gives preference to people who are more likely to become financial dependents rather than economic contributors. We should make it clear that the sponsors themselves have to be financially responsible for whomever they bring into our nation for at least 5 years (after 5 years, a green card holder can apply for U.S. citizenship) and restrict access to social welfare benefits to U.S. citizens only. As long as we "build a wall" around our welfare system, we as nation shouldn't dictate which family members that the U.S. citizen and green card holders want to bring. A good immigration reform bill should focus on simplification and emphasize skill-based immigration so we will ensure a win-win situation for both our nation and the new immigrants. If they are willing to listen, there are good ideasout there on how to fix our broken immigration system.
Trump’s order states: In order to protect Americans, the United States must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes toward it and its founding principles. The United States cannot, and should not, admit those who do not support the Constitution, or those who would place violent ideologies over American law. In addition, the United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from their own) or those who would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or sexual orientation. Thomas noted it would apply to a communist overthrow of the United States,”but the only real threat on the global stage today is the ideology of Islamic supremacy.” there have been more than 30,000 violent jihad terror attacks worldwide since 9/11 while the white supremacist threat, Jihad Watch Director Robert Spencer has pointed out, has been “wildly exaggerated” by George Soros-funded groups and media “that downplay and deny the jihad threat.” He further argues that jihad “is an international movement set on destroying the U.S. and found on every continent; white supremacism is not.”
the court is considering whether to uphold a temporary restraining order issued by District Judge James Robart against the Trump executive order, which was only supposed to last 90 to 120 days, enjoining the administration from implementing parts of the order pending trial. Never mind that Congress delegated to the president broad powers to suspend the normal scheme of immigration and refugee inflows into the country under statute, and that otherwise the president also has broad power under Article II in the conduct of foreign relations. If this case was being decided on its merits, the states of Washington and Minnesota would never have been granted standing to sue on behalf of people living in foreign countries like Iraq, Syria and Iran who do not even have visas. What if the 9th Circuit decides, with the Supreme Court composed 4-4, to quickly make a broad ruling that extends constitutional and legal protections to non-visa holders overseas for the first time in U.S. history? Although not desirable in the normal course of governing, particularly when you know you’re right, partially rescinding the order would render current cases against it moot before they ever get to proceed to their merits. If the executive order’s controversial provisions have been rescinded, then there can be no case against it.
Impeach Judge James Robart for violating sovereignty and Constitution
In the long run, Congress must strip the federal judiciary of their power grab and restore Congress’ plenary power over immigration, as it was since our founding. However, in the meantime, it’s time to make impeachment great again. James Wilson, one of the preeminent Founders and an original Supreme Court justice who helped draft Article III, clearly annunciated this point: “In the United States and in Pennsylvania, impeachments are confined to political characters, to political crimes and misdemeanors, and to political punishments.” Here are a sampling of quotes and anecdotes from our Founders and congressional history regarding the purpose of impeachment……. Impeaching for political crimes is even more relevant to judges than executive officials because judges are to hold their tenure only under “good behavior.” [art. III §1] This was quite evident from Hamilton’s seminal writings in Federalist #s78, 79, and 81. He felt that impeachment would be the primary check against federal judges abusing judicial review. It is obvious he wasn’t referring to judges committing murder, but rather judges violating the Constitution with their decisions as we are witnessing today.
Congress has plenary control over lower courts and the appellate jurisdiction of the Supreme Court. Congress can abolish the lower courts altogether and reroute their cases to state courts. Every aspect of the court system’s structure — administrative procedures, rules of adjudication, methods of interpretation, and logistics of proceedings — can be regulated by Congress in any way. As such, it goes without saying that Congress can, as it has done in the past, modify the geographical jurisdiction of an existing circuit. The Ninth Circuit cesspool The time has come to strip the Ninth Circuit down to size. This court is by far the most anti-constitutional circuit amidst a federal judiciary where the majority of the circuits don’t respect the Constitution as written. – Indeed, the Trump administration and the GOP Congress owe it to the state to provide them with a new federal appeals court. The Constitution [art. IV, § 4.] requires the federal government to “guarantee to every state in this union, a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion.” Arizona has been invaded in the worst way possible and they have lost all republican representation by having their sovereignty and right to self-determination denuded by the unelected and unaccountable Ninth Circuit. As I observed in Stolen Sovereignty [page 100]:
Eastman commented it “does not get much clearer than that, yet the 9th Circuit does not even cite, much less explain away, that statute “Neither the judge in Washington state nor the court has offered anything approaching a detailed discussion of 8 U.S.C Paragraph 1182 (f), the law which specifically gives the president authority to suspend the entry of any aliens into the U.S. if he believes their entry would be ‘detrimental to the interests of the United States.'”
Physical harm is one type of harm. The other harm is harm to our American culture - our Judeo-Christian Western republican political culture. This is the original harm addressed in the debates over the 1795 naturalization law, wherein people antithetical to American republicanism were deemed unfit to be given citizenship. One must ask why there is a mania to bring immigrants into this country at this time. We have enough trouble as it is. We don't need the 1,000,000 new immigrants and the nearly 100,000 asylum seekers that come in each year. Those numbers are aside from foreign students and foreign guest workers. Almost half of all illegals already here are those who have come here legally and overstayed their visas.
Sheriffs from across the country met with President Trump last week and told The Washington Examiner that not only is the liberal talking point about sanctuary cities wrong—there’s not even anecdotal evidence to back it up: National Sheriffs' Association executive director Jonathan Thompson, who represents a wide geographical range of law enforcement officers, said he has never seen any statistics indicating that illegal immigrants are a significant source of information for police.
"I've not even seen anecdotal evidence," Thompson told the Washington Examiner.
In presenting the oral arguments for the president and the people, Flentje evinced a level of incompetence that spurred the Bench to the heights of usurpation. For example, when The Court caviled about an alleged lack of evidence for the necessity of the “travel ban,” not only did Flentje fail to provide it, but he failed to question the need for this evidence, based on the scope of the president’s constitutional, executive power in matters of national security. Recall, Roberts, chief of the country's legal politburo of proctologists, rewrote Obama's Affordable Care Act. He then proceeded to provide the fifth vote to uphold the individual mandate undergirding the law, thereby undeniably and obscenely extending Congress's taxing power. (Lazy government worker Paul Ryan still hasn’t come up with an alternative to ObamaCare, one that’ll prevent the Left from torching the country. Patience. It’s only been eight years.) Robart’s mission of mercy was to rescue “two visiting scholars who had planned to spend time at Washington State University” ( Parents, students, alumni, legislators and taxpapers take note) and “were not permitted to enter the United States. One was informed he would be unable to obtain a visa.” As “helpless” were “three prospective employees from countries covered by the Executive Order,” which “the University of Washington was in the process of sponsoring.” Protected, too, from “irreparable harm” were a couple of interns. Likewise, they were sponsored by WSU, a university which receives money from American taxpayers, but brags of serving “citizens … worldwide.” Universities funded by American taxpayers might try doing some local engagement. Yes, Bill O’Reilly, President Trump was correct when he asserted that, “We have a lot of killers.” Our country’s politicians have left lands not their own slick with blood. But this doesn’t mean the American people deserve to be killed stateside, which is what President Trump’s Executive Order was meant to prevent.
New President Donald J. Trump’s made some major changes to the official White House website that went live shortly after his inauguration. A law enforcement page under the “Issues” section was added, which discusses the growing disrespect for police officers, violent crime and keeping our communities safe. It also touches on Second Amendment rights and even illegal immigration. 2. Goodbye climate change. Protecting clean air and clean water, conserving our natural habitats, and preserving our natural reserves and resources will remain a high priority.” 3. Adios, Spanish-language content.
The Syrian Civil War touched off in 2011. Here are the Syrian-refugee admissions to the U.S. until Obama decided to admit more than 13,000 in 2016: Fiscal Year 2011: 29 Fiscal Year 2012: 31 Fiscal Year 2013: 36 Fiscal Year 2014: 105 Fiscal Year 2015: 1,682 To recap: While the Syrian Civil War was raging, ISIS was rising, and refugees were swamping Syria’s neighbors and surging into Europe, the Obama administration let in less than a trickle of refugees. Only in the closing days of his administration did President Obama reverse course — in numbers insufficient to make a dent in the overall crisis, by the way — and now the Democrats have the audacity to tweet out pictures of bleeding Syrian children? It’s particularly gross to see this display when the Obama administration’s deliberate decision to leave a yawning power vacuum — in part through its (Obama/Hillary/Democrap) Iraq withdrawal and in part through its dithering throughout the Syrian Civil War — exacerbated the refugee crisis in the first place. There was a genocide on Obama’s watch, and his tiny trickle of Syrian refugees hardly makes up for the (Obama/Hillary/Democrap) grotesque negligence of abandoning Iraq and his years-long mishandling of the emerging Syrian crisis. For example, when Obama dramatically expanded Syrian refugee admissions in 2016, few Christians made the cut:
the Obama administration also discriminated against Christian Syrian refugees, ended the wet foot, dry foot policy with Cubans fleeing their communist hell hole, and stopped processing Iraqi visas for six months in 2011. Oh, and some of those visa applicants served as interpreters for the U.S. military and provided intelligence to our forces. Trump’s isn’t a “Muslim ban.” Only seven of the world’s 50 majority Muslim countries are on the list, (Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim country; they’re not on the list) with three of them being pegged by the State Department as state sponsors of terror. Under Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, Congress’s powers in this area are plenary, and the president’s powers are as broad as the Congress chooses to give him. citing U.S. v. Curtiss-Wright as judicial precedent for the primacy of the executive over Congress in realm of international relations. Federal immigration law also includes Section 1182(f), which states: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate” Trump’s executive order also expressly relies on an Obama-era provision of the immigration law, Section 1187(a)(12), which governs the Visa Waiver Program. The Tsarnaev brothers who carried out the Boston Marathon bombing were children of asylees; the Times Square bomber was a Pakistani immigrant; the underwear bomber was from Nigeria; the San Bernardino shooter was the son of Pakistani immigrants; the Chattanooga shooter was from Kuwait; the Fort Hood shooter was the son of Palestinian immigrants. All of this takes place against the backdrop of a global movement of radical Islamist terrorism that kills tens of thousands of people a year in terrorist attacks
would-be immigrants who might like to travel to the U.S, who are subject to the executive order, are not U.S. citizens nor do they possess any legal status here. They are not subject to constitutional protections. There is no constitutional right to immigrate to the U.S., nor any constitutional requirement that the border remain open for all-comers. The ACLU ignores Trump’s inherent executive authority under Article II of the Constitution to issue the order, the National Review’s Andrew McCarthy notes, “At issue is a matter related to the conduct of foreign affairs — a matter of the highest order of importance since it involves foreign threats to national security. “It is a fact that Obama himself as president issued three so-called 212(f) travels bans, as presidents have broad authority to do so under 8 U.S.C. Section 1182(f), which was never repealed by the 1965 Immigration Act and therefore can only be read as a presidential exception in order for the two statutes to be read consistently. That is out 16 such travel active bans that were issued by presidents over the years prior to Trump’s inauguration.” In fact, the countries which Trump is targeting are nothing more than the countries which Obama instituted travel restrictions on, the 2015 exceptions to the visa waiver program Congress stipulated under 8 U.S.C. Section 1187(a)(12). As Matt Vespa of Townhall reminds, “In February 2016, the Obama administration added Libya, Somalia and Yemen to the list of countries one could not have visited — but allowed dual citizens of those countries who had not traveled there access to the Visa Waiver Program. Dual citizens of Syria, Sudan, Iraq and Iran are still ineligible, however.” In 2011, the State Department suspended processing of refugees from Iraq for six months after the al Qaeda terrorists in Kentucky who had snuck into the country posing as refugees were caught by the FBI. More recently, the LA Times of Jan. 2017 explained a glitch in the vetting system which was discovered in 2015 and prevented U.S. officials from conducting background checks on refugees. Even during the San Bernardino terror attacks, Mariya Chernykh, a Russian national married to Enrique Marquez Jr., pleaded guilty to conspiracy, perjury and making false statements on information surrounding the terror attack. The couple now also faces charges which intend to prove that their marriage was a sham in order to receive the green card necessary for Marquez to involve himself in the attack coordination. NBC News continues to report that, “Marquez, 24, is also alleged to have bought explosive material which was then later found in a pipe bomb recovered at the scene of the shooting rampage at the San Bernardino Inland Occupation Center.” The vetting process is far from the infallible system the left and even McCain and Graham pretend it is, and now Trump is attempting to fix that system. Temporarily suspending travel from terror hotspots while the administration gets a policy for real, effective vetting in place, is a common-sense move aimed at protecting the American people — the government’s first and foremost responsibility.
“[T]here is a provision in the McCarran bill, an unprecedented provision, section 212 (e), which would give the President of the United States the authority to bar any and all aliens, or any class of aliens, at any time the President felt such a move was required in the public interest. This is plain authority for the President to shut off all immigration, at any time, or to reduce it at any time, or to shut off immigration from any country, at any time, in time of peace as in time of war.” That was Sen. Herbert Lehman (D-N.Y.) speaking on the floor of the Senate on May 13, 1952 in opposition to the provision of the Immigration Act of 1952 — now 8 U.S.C. 1182(f) — that has been invoked by President Donald Trump to temporarily suspend immigration from seven countries deemed to be terrorist hotspots. That section of the law Lehman objected to, and remains on the books today, states, “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.” Although an opponent to the measure, Lehman explained precisely and quite clearly what the extent of the grant of power to the president was under the 1952 law, as was originally understood by members of Congress. The law was adopted overwhelmingly. President Harry Truman actually vetoed the bill, and the vetoes were overridden in the both the House and the Senate by the requisite two-thirds majorities. It was a popular bill. The 1952 law put together a fairly strict scheme of national quotas limiting the number of immigrants that could be accepted on a per country basis. In fact, the American Legion testified on behalf of section 212 in testimony before the House Judiciary Committee in 1965, submitting for the record a resolution by that group that stated “the American Legion strongly supports the provisions of section 212 of the Immigration and Nationality Act pertaining to the security of the United States and the mandatory exclusion of undesirables, it therefore urges the retention of the mandatory exclusion of all classes therein defined so that the strength and security of the United States of America shall not be weakened in the years ahead.”
Obama enacted a six-month ban on refugees from Iraq in 2011 after it was revealed that two Iraqi Muslims resettled in Bowling Green, Kentucky, were sending weapons and cash to al-Qaida in Iraq. They were arrested, tried, convicted and are serving time, unbeknownst to Judge Robart. President Jimmy Carter implemented a travel ban on citizens from Iran after the Shah was deposed and students seized the U.S. Embassy in 1979. Dozens of Somali refugees have been involved in terror plots, including more than 40 of which left the country to join ISIS, al-Shabab or al-Qaida, the FBI has confirmed. Andrew Luger, the U.S. attorney for Minnesota, even admitted in April 2015 that “We have a terror recruitment problem in Minnesota” involving the Somali refugee community in that state. His comment came at a press conference after six Somali refugees were charged with trying to leave the country to board flights to Turkey, from where they planned to hop across the border to Syria and join ISIS.
The problem got so bad in Minnesota with Somali refugees and their sons being recruited by ISIS that the federal government under Barack Obama approved grants for a pilot program that emphasized teaching Somali youth how not to succumb to the terrorist recruiters by getting involved in soccer or the arts. As WND pointed out in a story Sunday and the AP acknowledged Monday, Somali refugees also carried out knife attacks against civilians at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota, on Sept. 17, injuring 10, and at Ohio State University on Nov. 28, injuring 11.
We have just armed up the most aggressive, detestable terrorist-state on the face of the earth, Iran! They’re on their way to building nuclear weapons! The Obama administration cut a secret deal with Iran to permit the terrorist-sponsoring regime to violate restrictions put in place by last year’s nuclear deal. These are impeachable offenses for the whole top-level of the Obama administration, the president on down. This is the fate that President Obama has sealed for the American people. In addition, this Iran Deal is a treaty and should have been put before the Senate as treaty. However, it wasn’t and Mitch McConnell and Bob Corker did nothing to stop the President. The warnings of Mike Lee and other conservatives in the Senate went unheeded. In the end, this deal makes war with Iran absolute.
(Pro-dictator-terrorist-muslim-marxist Democrap Owebummer-anti-American aid & comfort treasonous activity) The administration agreed to pay Iran $1.7 billion to compensate that country for its payment to the U.S. in 1979 for military equipment. That deal fell through after Iran's government was overthrown, and the Obama administration has said it owes Iran this money, plus interest.
NEW YORK – Documents made public by the Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch and separately by Wikileaks Julian Assange back up Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s assertion on Tuesday that U.S.-led coalition forces have given support to terror groups, including ISIS in Syria. In an interview with Democracy Now’s Juan González on July 25, Assange said the thousands of documents released by Wikileaks through its “Hillary Clinton Email Archive” contain some 1,700 emails that connect Clinton to al-Qaida and ISIS in both Libya and Syria, demonstrating Clinton supplied weapons to ISIS via Syria.
“So, those Hillary Clinton emails, they connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, creating a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office, but, more broadly, how the U.S. Department of State operates,” Assange said in the interview. “So, for example, the disastrous, absolutely disastrous intervention in Libya, the destruction of the Gadhafi government, which led to the occupation of ISIS of large segments of that country, weapons flows going over to Syria, being pushed by Hillary Clinton, into jihadists within Syria, including ISIS, that’s there in those emails.”
(Owebummer’s smart diplomacy) United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemned North Korea's latest nuclear test on Friday as a "brazen breach" of U.N. Security Council resolutions. Britain and Australia condemn the latest nuclear test by North Korea and say China should use its influence to persuade Pyongyang to end the detonations
In 2015 Judicial Watch reported that ISIS is operating a camp just west of Ciudad Juárez, around eight miles from El Paso. Sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and Mexican Federal Police inspector revealed that, during a joint operation, they discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation in El Paso that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation. Just last week Judicial Watch reported that a Jihadi-cartel alliance in the Mexican state of Nuevo León is collaborating to carry out attacks in American cities and ports of entry along the southern border. Confidential U.S. and Mexican law enforcement sources said that, as part of the plan, militant Islamists have arrived recently at the Monterrey International Airport situated in Apodaca, Nuevo León, about 130 miles south of the Texas border. An internal Mexican law enforcement report obtained by Judicial Watch confirms that Islamic terrorists have “people along the border, principally in Tijuana, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas.” Cartel informants tell law enforcement contacts that “they are only waiting for the order and the times to carry out a simultaneous attack in the different ports of entry or cities of the United States of America.” The area where this week’s shootout originated is a 5.6-acre parcel just south of downtown Nuevo Laredo on Paseo Colon
Remember when Democrats were mocking us for being Islamophobic because we weren’t thrilled at the idea of importing thousands of unvetted Muslim refugees from countries infested with jihadists? Obama himself scolded his own countrymen for rejecting a bunch of “widows and orphans” and having a baseless fear of “3 year old children” refugees.
Well maybe Barrack should take a gander at this footage that reportedly depicts a Syrian mother and father giving their 7 & 9 year old daughters a pep talk before they’re to carry out a suicide bombing mission, all in the name of Islam. We can see the father walk them through their mission, preparing them to walk into a place filled with innocent people and detonate a bomb.
Dershowitz unleashes: Obama an 'appalling president' Calls him 'one of the worst ever'
Dershowitz said he had met with Obama at one point, and Obama had assured him that he would always have Israel’s back.
“I didn’t realize what [Obama] meant is that he would have their back to stab them,” Dershowitz said. Obama will be considered “one of the worst foreign policy presidents ever,” he said. He described Obama as an “appalling, appalling president.”
Here’s what Cruz had to say in his amazing note to the Obama administration:
Like bitter clingers, President Obama and Secretary Kerry are spending every last minute of this administration wreaking havoc domestically and abroad. With their last breath in office, they have struck at Israel, through the United Nations and through today’s disgraceful speech. These acts are shameful. They are designed to secure a legacy, and indeed they have: history will record and the world will fully understand Obama and Kerry as relentless enemies of Israel. Their actions were designed to weaken and marginalize Israel, and to embolden its enemies. Today’s speech — like Kerry’s 2014 remarks likening Israel to an apartheid state — will enflame rising anti-Semitism in Europe. It will encourage the mullahs who hate Israel and hate America. And it will facilitate “law-fare,” growing legal assaults on Israel through transnational legal fora. Kerry’s speech drew a stunning moral equivalence between our great ally Israel and the Palestinian Authority, currently formed in a ‘unity’ government with the vicious terrorists of Hamas.
Online news giant Matt Drudge, founder of the popular Drudge Report, posted a scathing attack on President Trump’s White House and the Republican Party on Wednesday, saying the GOP “should be sued for fraud” for apparent inaction on key promises. In a series of rare tweets, Drudge began with a message stating: “No Obamacare repeal, tax cuts!
Jeanne Sahadi of CNN Money reminded that the Senate Finance Committee, which is in charge of tax reform policy, has yet to offer its own reform proposal or take a meaningful look into either the House Republican blueprint or Trump’s ideas.
The same can be said of repealing Obamacare, where the House and Senate budget reconciliation bills still do not contain the text of repeal, let alone of replacing the health care law. Right now, Republicans have full control over Congress and the Presidency, if Congress wades on tax reform it could be what prevents Republicans from keeping control in the midterms in 2018.
The Senate confirmed Price 52-47, and the former House Budget Committee chairman is taking over the Department of Health and Human Services as the White House and Congress prepare to follow through on their campaign promises to repeal Obamacare. An orthopedic surgeon who served more than a decade in the House, Price has spent the last seven years in Congress opposing the Affordable Care Act. The new HHS secretary introduced his own health care plan in 2009—he’s reintroduced that same proposal, the Empowering Patients First Act, in every Congress since then.
Zullo explained the investigation found that some of the images on the Obama document image apparently were copied from an original birth certificate that belongs to a woman named Johanna Ah’nee. But Ah’nee said she obtained a copy of her birth certificate and kept it locked in her own files until after the Obama image was released. At about that time, she revealed it to WND senior writer Jerry Corsi, who was reporting on the dispute. Zullo told how the investigation launched by Arpaio at the request of constituents took him to Hawaii. If Ah’nee’s copy of birth certificate had not been circulated, posted online or otherwise made available, he concludes that only the Hawaiian government, which had the document image, could have used it to copy elements onto Obama’s. The evidence “pointed to an inside job,” he said. “The nine points of forgery between the Johanna Ah’nee birth certificate and Obama’s [long-form birth certificate] prove convincingly that the Ah’nee birth certificate was the source document from which the Obama LFBC was created.”
A former Army intelligence analyst, Manning has been serving a 35-year sentence for leaking more than 700,000 classified government and military documents to WikiLeaks, along with some battlefield video. She was convicted in military court in 2013 of six violations of the Espionage Act and 14 other offenses and has spent more than six years behind bars. She asked Obama last November to commute her sentence to time served.
(Owebenedict message being a traitor is ok as Oweblamer loves traitors and deserters like Bergdahl too.) By commuting Manning’s richly deserved sentence, Obama is sending a horrible message to dedicated U.S. public servants, in and out of uniform, that honoring their responsibility to keep national security secrets from the public eye isn’t all that important. Manning downloaded 400,000 classified files from the Iraq war, some 91,000 files from the Afghan war, around 250,000 U.S. diplomatic cables (emails), sensitive and classified U.S. airstrike videos, and classified documents and files from Guantanamo Bay, including classified assessments of Guantanamo terrorist detainees. Manning placed that material on a SD-type card, and took it. Manning then gave that highly classified and sensitive material to WikiLeaks, knowing full well that it would (1) publish the material and (2) that the material could and likely would fall into the hands of our enemies. The Army charged Manning with, among other things, aiding the enemy—a crime that under certain circumstances could result in the death penalty. Eventually, Manning decided to plead guilty instead of contesting the charges against him. The maximum possible sentence to those charges to which Manning pleaded guilty was 136 years. The “mercy” that some argue for was actually granted by the trial judge: She didn’t sentence Manning to the 50 or 100 or 136 years Manning could have served.
President-elect Donald Trump is getting some encouragement on the eve of his swearing in this week from a prominent Israeli mystic spiritual leader who says, “When Trump takes office, he will receive help directly from heaven that will enable him overcome these obstacles, and bring peace to the world.” Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi, who has a dedicated following in Israel, made several other stunning predictions. “The media will discover that outgoing President Barack Obama is a traitor,” he told Kikar HaShabbat, a Hebrew-language news service for Orthodox Jews. “Obama, like an injured beast, helped Hillary Clinton whose sole intention was to continue his agenda.” The rabbi said that while outgoing President Barack Obama will attempt to thwart Trump, it won’t work. “Before he leaves, Obama wants to destroy everyone and everything Trump loves, so that when Trump does take power, it will be difficult for him to cope with everything that Obama ruined,” Ben Artzi predicted. “This is Obama’s revenge on Trump.” Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi The rabbi noted the White House announcement last week that it had approved the sale of 130 tons of Russian uranium to Iran, enough to make 10 nuclear bombs. But Trump will overcome seemingly implacable problems, he said. “When Trump takes office, he will receive help directly from heaven that will enable him overcome these obstacles, and bring peace to the world,” he declared. “And for this reason, Trump will succeed greatly.”
Congress to step in, which can assist this process three-fold: 1) By incentivizing early retirement via the appropriations process with limited-time-only buy-outs; 2) cutting the personnel budgets of non-defense civilian departments and agencies, reducing the enacted full-time equivalent number for each department, agency and office by 10 to 20 percent in the workforce on a last-one-in, first-one-out basis; and 3) defunding existing preferences under federal rules being given to those laid off being later rehired on a first-in-line basis. That would eliminate politicized Obama administration holdovers, and prevent them from being rehired should it become necessary to fill in some gaps. Other ideas include eliminating automatic dues deduction for federal employees unions and getting rid of any full-time official time union personnel.

"In the 2000s, Ellison was very close to the old Communist Party USA (CPUSA)," Loudon told WND. "He held several fundraisers in the home of CPUSA Minnesota leader Erwin Marquit, and the CPUSA supplied nearly half of the phone-bankers used by Ellison in one election cycle." The late Erwin Marquit, a college professor who served on the Economics Commission and International Affairs Commissions of the Communist Party USA, recounted in his memoirs how he and his wife, also a CPUSA member, served as Democratic-Farmer-Labor delegates and "campaigned for Ellison before and at" the Democratic convention, helping to secure Ellison the DFL nomination. Keith X was put into office by dedicated communists. He supported the dissolution of the United States to create an ethnostate only for blacks. He's been the biggest defender of the Muslim Brotherhood in Congress. And, now, he's poised to take over the Democrat party. He's Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota. And he's one of "The Enemies Within" profiled in Trevor Loudon's explosive new documentary of that name. Loudon, who has researched communism and leftist movements for decades, says Ellison has a long partnership with anti-American movements, dating back to when he was as student.
A Jewish state assemblyman in New York is also leading an effort to get Sen. Schumer to renounce his support for Ellison for DNC chairman. Peterson suggests it is a time for choosing for Jews in the Democratic Party. “There should be a mass exodus of Jewish Americans from the Democratic Party,” Peterson said. “The fact that Ellison is a frontrunner for the DNC chair position indicates that the Democratic Party is anti-Israel and anti-Jewish. Ellison is a black bigot who hates Jews. If Ellison becomes chair it means that Jews are no longer welcome in the Democratic Party. Any Jewish American who supports the DNC is funding their own demise.” Colin Flaherty, who chronicled nationwide black mob violence against whites in his book “White Girl Bleed A Lot,” argues racial grievances are driving the modern Democratic Party. “If black people want to support Ellison because he is the major black candidate, well, I suppose it is their privilege to support someone whose only claim to fame is that he hates America,” he said. “This guy is a disaster on every level. Peterson believes Ellison’s prominence proves his contention the Democrats are a “far-left, hateful, separatist party.” “They’re anti-family, anti-military, and most have no respect for the U.S. Constitution,” he charged. “The party is still as evil today as it was when it was run by pro-slavery Ku-Klux-Klan supporters and segregationists. The party today is more sophisticated and they’re stealthier in the way they operate and how they exploit blacks and women in order to maintain power, but they’re still evil.” But for his part, Elder can’t help but endorse Ellison – though not for the reasons the Minnesota congressman would like. “As a flame-throwing, race card-dealing, extreme leftist, Ellison is exactly the wrong person for the job,” Elder joked. “So I hope they hire him.”
(your town is next) Sterling Heights agreed to a settlement with a Muslim group that wants to build a mega-mosque on 15 Mile at Mound Road, in the heart of a residential area filled with Christians who escaped Muslim persecution in Iraq. The nearly 200 people who packed city hall in protest of the mosque were limited by Mayor Michael C. Taylor to two minutes of speaking time. “There were people crying, complaining about not being given enough time to speak,” said Nahren Anweya, spokeswoman for the approximately 50,000 Chaldean and Assyrian Christians living in the area. “The mayor was literally acting like a dictator, wouldn’t let people finish their statements,” she told WND. “As soon as they said something about the persecution their family experienced from Muslims in Iraq, he would shut them down.” Anweya said her own great-grandfather was crucified by Muslims in Iraq because he refused to remove the large gold cross he wore around his neck. Her family immigrated to the U.S. in 1989, when she was 6 years old. Nahren Anweya’s family fled Iraq in 1989 after being decimated by Muslim community there. According to the settlement deal, the city of Sterling Heights will grant the American Islamic Community Center a permit to build a 20,800-square-foot mosque and will send city employees to classes teaching them how not to discriminate against Muslims in the future. Barbara McQuade, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan and an Obama appointee, led the investigation into the city’s handling of the mosque project, and she remains in her post under Trump. She praised the settlement at a news conference Wednesday morning, saying it made her “very proud.” Not only did the city fail to announce the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting in the local legal newspaper, but the way the meeting itself was handled seemed questionable, he said. “Freedom of speech? What freedom of speech? They were given two minutes, and the second they started talking about their culture and their history, they were told to sit down. And if they didn’t sit down, [Taylor] had them escorted out by the police,” she said. “These were people who literally escaped from genocide in Iraq, and some were escorted out in tears Even if they never voted in the last 20 years, they will vote now. Word is spreading and going viral now in the community, and they are going to vote out the entire council. The mayor, we’re going to probably vote him out,” said Anweya.
Daniel Greenfield at FrontPage Magazine recently outlined what is known about the breach and the implications. Imran Awan and his two brothers, Jamal and Abid, are at the center of an investigation into, among other things, allegations of illegal access. They have been barred from the House of Representatives network. A member of Congress feared that they “may have stolen data from us.” Greenfield reported that the three Pakistani brothers had worked only for Democrats, including members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. It was not even a year after eight Democrats on that committee “issued a demand that their staffers be granted access to top secret classified information,” he reported. There’s a special concern about Carson, he revealed. “Carson is the second Muslim in Congress and the first Muslim on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and, more critically, is the ranking member on its Emerging Threats Subcommittee,” Greenfield wrote. “He is also a member of the Department of Defense Intelligence and Overhead Architecture Subcommittee. The Emerging Threats Subcommittee, of which Carson is a ranking member, is responsible for much of counterterrorism oversight. It is the worst possible place for a man with Carson’s credentials.” Greenfield continued: “Carson had inherited his grandmother’s seat and exploited it to promote a radical Islamist agenda. He has interfaced with a laundry list of Islamist groups from CAIR to ISNA to ICNA to MPAC.
The investigation also showed that around the time of Obama’s birth, the state of Hawaii had the policy of selling birth certificates to foreign nationals who visited the islands. During the time of Obama’s birth in 1961, many Japanese nationals applied for ‘unattended’ birth certificates for their own foreign children. They did this to make their children US citizens and entitle them to the privileges of citizenship. At the time of Hawaii’s statehood in 1959, Japan was still trying to rebuild itself from the financial and industrial devastation of World War II. As a new state, Hawaii needed revenue and one way they found to generate some revenue was to offer unattended birth certificates for a price. Honest people generally have nothing to hide, so this begs the question – ‘if Barack Obama has nothing to hide, then why has he gone to such lengths and personal expense to hide his birth records along with many of his other early records?’
now a 10th feature of the document that shows it’s fraudulent. Investigator Mike Zullo, who joined with Arpaio in a Dec. 15 news conference disclosing nine other elements that experts concluded were copied to create Obama’s document, released a video to WND explaining the additional evidence. It explains that two stamps on the Obama document not only were identical in angle to the stamps on another birth certificate – that of Johanna Ah’nee from the same time period – they also had the identical vertical relationship. This despite the fact that the “stamps” purportedly were hand applied days apart. “What are the odds that both the stamps in box 20 and the stamps in box 22 would have the exact same corresponding angles even though they were stamped 16 days apart?” the video asks. That means they almost certainly were digitally copied from the Ah’nee certificate then dragged together and pasted onto Obama’s, the video explains. Zullo explained that the fact the two stamps are an exact match vertically reveals that they were taken as a group. “The fact that there is no vertical displacement indicates the exact vertical and horizontal alignment of the stamps are an exact copy from the Ah’nee certificate … reinforcing the claim that the Ah’nee [document] is without question a source document.” It eliminates, too, he said, any chance that the date stamps were placed by hand on the Obama document. The copied items include the word “Honolulu,” “Oahu” twice, three different Xs and two time stamps. The identical nature of the Xs raised serious questions since they would have been applied to original documents by moving a typewriter carriage and roller at the time. One of the experts who assisted in the investigation was Reed Hayes, a court-qualified handwriting and document examiner, who runs a business in Hawaii. He is on the board of the Scientific Association of Forensic Examiners and has been in business nearly 40 years. Forlabs, an Italian company that specializes in extracting information from multimedia files, also produced the results. “We had two experts from two countries in separate disciplines of forensics that came to one conclusion: Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate it not authentic,” the report said. Among the many records the Obama camp has refused to release are the marriage license of his father (Barack Sr.) and mother (Stanley Ann Dunham), name-change records (Barry Soetero to Barack Hussein Obama), adoption records, records of his and his mother’s repatriation as U.S. citizens from Indonesia, baptism records, Noelani Elementary School (Hawaii) records, Punahou School financial aid or school records, Occidental College financial aid records, Harvard Law School records, Columbia senior thesis, Columbia College records, record with Illinois State Bar Association, files from his terms as an Illinois state senator, his law client list, medical records and passport records.
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, tweeted: “Judge Gorsuch is a tremendous pick for the Supreme Court and I look forward to doing everything I can to ensure he is confirmed by Senate.” Conservatives are still concerned about the ‘David Souter effect.’”
The “Souter effect” is certainly a concern by many conservatives who have been promised originalist appointments in the past, only to see some, notably Souter, devolve into knee-jerk progressives after some time inside the beltway. (John DemoCrapCare Roberts effect too.) Last month, law professor Justin Marceau described Gorsuch as “a predictably socially conservative judge who tends to favor state power over federal power … a judge who, while perhaps not as combative in personal style as Justice Scalia, is perhaps his intellectual equal … and almost certainly his equal on conservative jurisprudential approaches to criminal justice and social justice issues that are bound to keep coming up in the country.”
One recent study singled out Gorsuch as one of the top judges whose approach to interpreting the law was closest to that of Scalia’s approach. Gorsuch ranked second out of 15 judges in “Scalia-ness,” surpassed only by Utah Supreme Court Justice Thomas Lee.
(MAGA plan b-temporary suspension of filibuster rule) a majority of senators must approve flouting the rules, and it’s far from clear whether 51 Republicans support using the maneuver to do so. McConnell can afford to lose only two of his Republican colleagues and still prevail in the parliamentary showdown with Schumer. (MAGA plan A) a majority may use Rule XIX (the two-speech rule) to shorten the amount of time members are able to filibuster. This rule prohibits any senator from giving more than two speeches on any one question during the same legislative day. In the Senate’s rules, the terms “legislative day” and “calendar day” do not mean the same thing. A legislative day ends only when the Senate adjourns and therefore may last much longer than the 24 hours that define a calendar day. Indeed, one particularly long legislative day in 1980 lasted 162 calendar days, spanning a period from Jan. 3 until June 12. Once a senator has given two speeches during the same legislative day, he or she may not speak again. The Senate votes when there are no members remaining on the floor who wish to and are allowed to speak. At that point, the support of a simple majority of the senators present and voting is sufficient for confirmation. Using the two-speech rule to confirm Trump’s Supreme Court pick is straightforward. Strictly enforcing the two-speech rule is likely to break the filibuster before every Democrat uses the maximum number of speeches allotted under the rules. This is because continuing to filibuster in this context imposes significant costs on rank-and-file Democrats. To have even the chance of success requires each Democrat to hold the Senate floor for a prolonged period in an effort to wait out the Republicans.
The only way for them to prevail in the parliamentary showdown is for Republicans to relent and cease their efforts to overcome the filibuster. A rules-based strategy to limit minority obstruction in this context would neither jeopardize the legislative filibuster nor unduly empower the majority to limit the rights of individual senators more broadly.
Republicans can turn to a seldom-used Senate rule that would allow them to pass legislation by a simple majority vote—legislation that has a greater chance of earning Trump’s signature after he assumes office Jan. 20. Called the two-speech rule, the tool limits senators to giving only two speeches in one legislative day on a question before the Senate. A legislative day, which differs from a calendar day, ends when the upper chamber adjourns. Once a senator gives those two speeches, he or she is not allowed to speak again. The Senate then would vote on the bill up for debate when there aren’t any more senators who are permitted to speak. Although the Wallner memo focused on how to move appropriations bills forward, the two-speech rule could be applied to future legislation addressing Obamacare—Republican leaders have said they are committed to repealing the health care law—as well as to Supreme Court nominations.
Heritage's new report on the "two-speech rule" outlines an approach that Senate Republicans could use to overcome a Democrat-led filibuster.
The framers designated five circumstances requiring a supermajority: convicting an impeached president or other high officer, amending the Constitution, ratifying a treaty, overturning a presidential veto or expelling a member of Congress. That's the list. Passing laws and confirming justices aren't on it. James Madison explained in Federalist No. 58 that it would give the minority control over the majority. The "principle of free government would be reversed." Requiring laws to pass two houses of Congress and giving the president a veto were better ways to promote wise lawmaking. Alexander Hamilton warned a supermajority requirement would cause "tedious delays" as it had under the failed Articles of Confederation. This is just what we're facing now. Some call dropping the filibuster "going nuclear." Actually, it would be a return to what the framers envisioned -- "going original."
Jackson wrote perhaps the best defense of “rotation in office” for government employees during his first annual message to Congress. In this 1829 speech, Jackson pushed Congress to adhere to “term limits” for bureaucrats—containing their time in office to four years, after which they would have to apply for their job again. Jackson said, The proposed limitation would destroy the idea of property now so generally connected with official station, and although individual distress may be sometimes produced, it would, by promoting that rotation which constitutes a leading principle in the republican creed, give healthful action to the system. However, most bureaucrats today can’t be removed from office due to the Pendleton Civil Service Reform Act passed in the late 19th century. (why can’t this act be trashed???)
Jacksonians certainly wanted to lift the forgotten man, not with a handout or a government-protected business, but with an equal playing field. Above all, they detested crony capitalism. This is the sordid collusion between big business and big government working together to squeeze out the common man, who doesn’t have prominent connections or well-paid lobbyists in the halls of power. When Jackson vetoed the re-charter of the Second Bank of the United States—which had many politicians practically on its payroll—he crafted one of the most elegant attacks on crony capitalism ever written while committing to one of the strongest Jacksonian ideas: opportunity for all, favoritism to none. >>>The Media Have It Wrong: Andrew Jackson’s Legacy Was Fighting Crony Capitalism Jackson wrote in his veto message: It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their selfish purposes … When the laws undertake to add to these natural and just advantages artificial distinctions … the humble members of society—the farmers, mechanics, and laborers—who have neither the time nor the means of securing like favors to themselves, have a right to complain of the injustice of their government. In fact, Jackson ended up securing more free trade agreements than any president up until that time, because he understood that attempts to help the “American economy” as a unit frequently end up choosing one set of American businesses—usually those without the budget for Washington lobbyists—over another. Jacksonian economics depended on returning power to the states and the people, rolling back an unfair system in which government picks economic winners and losers, and truly unleashing the power of the “forgotten man” to write his own economic destiny—to succeed or flounder without the interference of an incompetent and overbearing government. As Jackson said, “We shall more certainly preserve the peace when it is well understood that we are prepared for war.” Jackson’s nationalism was firmly grounded in the patriotic attachment to both the young history of the American people as well as the timeless ideas of limited government and republicanism that were present at its creation. America has a special destiny, and he was going to help carry it out.
There are a total of 43 million noncitizens currently living within US borders. Of these, approximately 12 million are illegal aliens. Not only are there well-documented reasons to believe that many of them may be violating election integrity, the fact is, many on the left are more than happy to see them do so. A Rasmussen Reports poll last year found that 53 percent of the Democratic Party supports allowing illegal aliens to vote. A full-scale, non-partisan federal voter fraud investigation is long overdue. Initially, such an investigation would be a simple matter of analyzing voter registration databases against federal databases of aliens and deceased individuals.
Why is the GOP just sitting around on repealing Obamacare after winning the impossible?
In 2015, Congress actually put a repeal bill on President Obama’s desk. And now that Republicans control every lever of power in the legislative process, suddenly the task to repeal has become monumental. It is not easy to name a member of Congress — or any GOP elected official — who has not run on repealing Obamacare. There are too many other things to accomplish — and such little time to see them through — for this party to squander its credibility on the one issue it can wipe out with a two-page bill.
Gorsuch voted with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in its en banc decision in Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius, which sided with the religious challengers and articulated a strong view of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. In addition, when the en banc 10th Circuit rejected the Little Sisters’ claims in Little Sisters v. Burwell, Gorsuch joined the dissent In three different cases—Green v. Haskell County Board of Commissioners (Ten Commandments display on courthouse lawn), American Atheists v. Duncan (public memorial cross on side of highway), and Summum v. Pleasant Grove City (Ten Commandments monument on public property)—he authored and/or joined dissents from denial of en banc review after the 10th Circuit ruled against the relevant public religious display. Notably, in its subsequent ruling in Summum, the Supreme Court agreed with and relied on the dissent joined by Gorsuch.
the annual Family Prosperity Index (FPI) is the only tool that offers a holistic picture of how well families in America are doing.
The FPI analyzes publicly-available, mostly government-produced data on 60 different variables that include everything from personal income to educational attainment, single-parenthood to poverty rates, entrepreneurship to religious attendance, and a host of other variables in six categories – economics; demographics; and family self-sufficiency, structure, culture, and health. Because this index doesn’t work solely with economic data, it provides a more comprehensive assessment of how well – or poorly – families are doing in a particular state and highlights areas in need of improvement. By ranking states against each other, the FPI allows for comparisons of overall prosperity scores as well as their specific components.
The Border Adjustment Tax, or BAT, is a way to stop economy-slowing tariffs or a value-added tax (VAT). The BAT is estimated to bring in a trillion dollars over 10 years and that would become a way to pay for a massive reduction in corporate and personal tax rates. A BAT would also put a cap on the demand for tariffs. The BAT is a viable option to dramatically improve our business climate by shifting the tax system to a territorial system. It will also prevent a trade war with the issuance of new tariffs. Basically, the BAT is a new system that allows the costs associated with products exported from the U.S. to be fully deductible in the cash flow model, while costs associated with imports are not deductible. It essentially evens the playing field between nations without favoring one or the other or becoming overly isolationist. Currently, America is the only nation in the 35-nation member trade group called the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) that does not have something like a BAT.
In his 2012 State of the Union address, President Barack Obama boasted that "over 1,000 Americans are working today because we stopped a surge in Chinese tires." According to a study done by the Peterson Institute for International Economics (http://tinyurl.com/jdtbktu), those trade restrictions forced Americans to pay $1.1 billion in higher prices for tires. So though 1,200 jobs were saved in the U.S. tire industry, the cost per job saved was at least $900,000 in that year. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average annual salary of tire builders in 2011 was $40,070. Here's a question for those of us who support trade restrictions in the name of saving jobs: In whose pockets did most of the $1.1 billion that Americans paid in higher prices go? It surely did not reach tire workers in the form of higher wages. According to the Peterson Institute study, "most of the money extracted by protection from household budgets goes to corporate coffers, at home or abroad, not paychecks of American workers. There is another side to this. When households have to pay higher prices for tires, they have less money to spend on other items -- such as food, clothing and entertainment -- thereby reducing employment in those industries.
$$$$Global warming $$$$$ has become a huge industry these days, with climate-change entrepreneurs such as former Vice President Al Gore cashing in big, as Bloomberg estimated his worth several years ago at $200 million-plus, up from $1.7 million while he was running for president. Governments are spending (taxpayer money) billions at a time. And doesn’t everyone feel the increasing costs of energy and products? But a new estimate of what it will cost the world’s citizens to reduce the world’s temperature by the end of the century by a “grand total of three tenths of one degree” is a stunner: $100 trillion. That’s $100,000,000,000,000.00. Enough to make 100 million people millionaires. The calculation comes from Danish statistician Bjorn Lomborg, the head of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, reports Climate Depot. Lomborg states: “We will spend at least one hundred trillion dollars in order to reduce the temperature by the end of the century by a grand total of three tenths of one degree – the equivalent of postponing warming by less than four years.” He explained the calculation is based on the U.N.’s own climate prediction model.
Gov. Chris Sununu signed SB 12 into law. The Governor's signature makes New Hampshire the 13th Constitutional Carry state in the union. This means Granite Staters will no longer be forced to seek permission to carry concealed or be registered like sex offenders before exercising their right to protect themselves. The battle to enter New Hampshire into the Constitutional Carry Club was a long, hard campaign. Please distribute this alert to your pro-gun family and friends and urge them to take action.

“Clean Water” Environmentalists Protesting North Dakota Pipeline Left Behind Tons of Waste, Could Contaminate Waterway
Hundreds of protestors flocked to Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota to protest the pipeline’s construction, which activists say will desecrate their sacred burial grounds and would contaminate their drinking water along the 1,172-mile route.
There have been claims that Dakota Access LLC never consulted the local tribes about the pipeline. They were consulted 389 times. There are also archeologists on site just in case construction runs into a burial site. Activists from across the country came to save a piece of Mother Earth, but ended up almost killing it. As the cleanup of the protest camp begins, authorities have found enough trash to fill 2,500 pick up trucks. Gov. Doug Burgum said that the amount of waste, coupled with the ending of winter and a potential spring flood, could lead to an environmental disaster concerning contamination of drinking water. If you want to catch up on the day-by-day details, please visit Rob Port’s Say Anything blog. This North Dakota-based blogger wrote about the daily insanity of the pipeline project and the protests. Nicely done, sir.
There is only one thing more appalling than the Washington Supreme Court’s 9-0 ruling against religious liberty on Friday. It is the silence of Christian leaders across America the court ruled that this 72-year-old grandmother who had employed gay workers and served gay customers for years, was required by law to participate in a gay wedding, even though this constituted a direct violation of her religious beliefs – beliefs which have been consistent and almost universally held among Christians for the last 2,000 years. Not only so, but the court upheld the attack on her personal assets as well – her house, her savings, her retirement funds – by requiring her “to pay the attorneys’ fees that the ACLU racked up in suing her,” fees which could reach as high as one million dollars. It’s about freedom, not money. I certainly don’t relish the idea of losing my business, my home, and everything else that your lawsuit threatens to take from my family, but my freedom to honor God in doing what I do best is more important.
The remarkable story of a prominent gay-rights activist who “found God,” rejected his homosexual lifestyle, married and became a Christian minister is the subject of a newly released, feature-length Hollywood film. Boasting A-list actors James Franco, Zachary Quinto and Emma Roberts – with a cameo by Darryl Hannah – “I Am Michael” debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in February 2015 but was released for distribution just three weeks ago. Glatze, in 2007, first told his story through a column published by WND that highlighted the impact WND Vice President David Kupelian’s book, “The Marketing of Evil,” had on him as he went through a period of spiritual searching.
The late Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School and become the first female surgeon at Boston Medical, was also the co-founder of the National Right to Life. And I love her words which guide the work of The Radiance Foundation and our desire to affirm that every human life has purpose: “I am not willing to stand aside and allow the concept of expendable human lives to turn this great land of ours into just another exclusive reservation where only the perfect, the privileged, and the planned have the right to live.” The billion-dollar federation of abortion facilities (mostly located in predominantly minority neighborhoods) is, literally, the leading killer of unarmed black lives (an estimated 266 per day)! Planned Parenthood is an extension of the Democratic Party. Ninety-eight percent to be exact. Just on the Congressional level, Planned Parenthood spent $681,679 on Democrats and a measly $12,500 on Republicans (1.8% to be exact).
16 yr old Autumn’s commentary was a response to the incessant promotion of abortion by Teen Vogue magazine. Read the tested and proven strategies to defeat the abortion cartel, in “Abortion Free: Your Manual for Building a Pro-Life America One Community at a Time.” Just a day ago, Newsbusters documented that Teen Vogue has promoted abortion more than 60 times to teens in 2017 alone. Autumn immediately created a video to shred the ideas, the article and Teen Vogue.
The movie is called "In the Face of Evil: Reagan's War in Word and Deed." It's the best documentary on Reagan I've ever seen. In fact, it's one of the best documentaries I've ever seen on any topic. And I know something about making documentaries, having produced a few. Maybe you think you know everything about Reagan and don't need to see a film from 2004. Then you'd be wrong. I thought I knew everything about Reagan before I saw it.
“And a study within the last year documents that of the top 76 “elite universities” in America, 65 do not require history majors to take even one course in American history. Imagine! History majors who know absolutely nothing about American history! And only 3 percent of universities today require a course in free-market economics. “No wonder today’s students love socialism, hate traditional values, and know nothing good about American history or heroes.” Barton argues Thomas Jefferson was a major opponent of slavery who worked all his life to end the practice. He also contends Jefferson was not the “racist” he has been portrayed as. “Students today need to study Thomas Jefferson’s own writings and actions rather than listening to the blatantly false claims of those who hate America and her Founders,” he advised. “If Thomas Jefferson is as racist as professors today claim, then why was he praised as a civil rights advocate by black civil rights leaders across the generations, including Benjamin Banneker, Frederick Douglas, Henry Highland Garnet, Martin Luther King Jr. and so many others? “Do today’s professors know more about Jefferson and civil rights than those who spent their entire life studying and seeking those civil rights? And if Thomas Jefferson was so pro-slavery, then why did he faithfully introduce anti-slavery laws and anti-slavery measures and support anti-slavery societies and abolition movements for nearly 60 years of his adult life? “Yes, Jefferson owned slaves, but he repeatedly tried to pass laws not only to free his own slaves, but all those in his state of Virginia. Sadly, he was unsuccessful. And state law would not allow him to free his own slaves. History clearly shows that Jefferson should be seen as an early anti-slavery advocate who was far ahead of his time in his home state.” In “The Jefferson Lies,” Barton dismantles several claims made about Jefferson, including the claim DNA evidence proved Jefferson fathered children with his slave Sally Hemings. He argues political correctness has completely distorted Jefferson’s legacy.
The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) sat on the most responsive documents to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by Americans for Limited Government for almost 3 years on what the legal and policy justification was for transitioning the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) administering to a single entity, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number (ICANN), creating a global monopoly over the the Internet’s domain name system.
Governor Weld brought up a fascinating point, a point that has been largely overlooked in the reams of post election analysis. Governor Weld said that Johnson-Weld internal polling showed that 75 percent of their voters would have voted for Donald Trump had they not been in the race. The Libertarian ticket received nearly 4.5 million total votes in the election. It makes logical sense that three fourths of these voters, drawn to a ticket of former, successful two-term Republican Governors, would be more attracted to limited government advocates promising change from the last eight years. In addition, they saw absolutely no appetite amongst their limited government voters to support the Clinton-Kaine ticket. In short, if the Johnson-Weld ticket had not run, Donald Trump would have won the popular vote. To be exact, the Johnson/Weld ticket received 4,489,233 votes. Seventy five percent of that would be roughly 3,366,924. Add that to Trump’s 62,985,106 votes and you get 66,352,030 to Clinton’s 65,853,625. Again, Trump won the Electoral College, which is the only contest that matters on Election Day. But if a liberal wants to rehash the tired and irrelevant talking point that Clinton won more popular votes, just remind that person if the libertarians didn’t run, Trump would have won the popular vote.
Charters interviewed Marion Ingebore Andrews, who said that Trump isn’t Hitler, and that it was the lefty protesters who were reminded her more of the infamous dictator with their illiberal agenda and anti-free speech antics: "What is going on in this country is giving me chills. Trump is not like Hitler. Just because a leader wants order doesn't mean they're like a dictator.
What reminds me more of Hitler than anything else isn't Trump, it's the destruction of freedom of speech on the college campuses — the agendas fueled by the professors. That's how Hitler started, he pulled in the youth to miseducate them, to brainwash them, it's happening today." It saddens me that we are teaching garbage in the schools and in the college. We don't teach history anymore. History repeats itself over and over.
The one on the left is the freely elected president of the free nation that made it possible for Edel Rodriguez to live freely and prosper financially. The one on the right is the co-founder of the mass-murdering, war-mongering totalitarian regime that drove Rodriguez’s desperate family–-along with millions of other Cubans– to risk their lives to escape it. In fact, the terrorist on the right was filming his executions (murders, actual execution implies a judicial procedure) half a century before ISIS. So in which pictures do we find the “warmonger blowing up the world!” the “hatemonger and terrorist!” motif? If the nuclear missiles had remained, we would have fired them against the very heart of the U.S., including New York!...We reject any peaceful approach! Violence is inevitable! The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!” To establish socialism rivers of blood must flow! .. In fact, Rodriguez had a picture-perfect cue for depicting one of his portrait subjects as a maniacal warmonger. The charming message above was raved by Che Guevara—that icon of flower children— proudly and for the record.
“The Cuban DGI (Directorio General de Inteligencia, Castro’s KGB-trained Secret Police and Intelligence Service) controls Casa de las Americas” In case you hadn’t heard Cuba’s intelligence services (which run Venezuela) were again caught forging Venezuelan passports for Islamic terrorists to enter Western countries including Canada (obviously not their ultimate destination.)
One can only imagine the widespread media, political, and intellectual condemnation of Republicans and conservatives if, after the inauguration of President Barack Obama, they had gone on a violent and vicious tear all over the nation as did Democrats and liberals after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. They committed acts such as assaulting Trump supporters, setting fires, and stoning police. Suppose Republicans/conservatives had carried signs that read “F— Obama” or talked about “blowing up the White House.” The news media, instead of calling them protesters, would have labeled them evil racists, obstructionists, and everything else. During Occupy protests, there were rapes, assaults, robberies, and holdups. These people publicly defecated and urinated on police cars. The mess they left after their demonstrations can be described as no more than a pigsty. Does anybody recall any Democratic official, from the president on down, admonishing them to behave? The nation’s most dangerous big cities in 2012 were Detroit, Oakland, St. Louis, Memphis, Stockton, Birmingham, Baltimore, Cleveland, Atlanta, and Milwaukee. The most common characteristic of these cities is that for decades, all of them have been run by Democratic and presumably liberal administrations. Some cities—such as Detroit, Buffalo, Newark, and Philadelphia—haven’t elected a Republican mayor for more than a half-century. It’s not just personal safety. These Democratic-controlled cities have the poorest-quality public education despite the fact that they have large and growing school budgets. Most of these dangerous cities have suffered massive decreases in population. It turns out that black people do not like to be mugged and live in unsafe neighborhoods any more than white people.
No taqiyya, no mincing of words. Islam is here to dominate. Haitham Ibn Thbait, of the American chapter of Hizb Ut-Tahrir, told American Muslims earlier this year that Islam was not here to integrate, but rather to dominate. “The Prophet said: ‘There is no god but Allah,’ said Thbait. “Instead the [elites of Mecca] rejected. They offered the Prophet wealth, status, and political representation – a seat on the executive branch within Mecca’s secular order – all to avoid this statement and its implications. Yet he rejected their offers and continued his journey towards radical change, providing us with step-by-step instructions on how to make this religion supreme.” “The elites of Mecca would use every possible measure to coerce or contain Muhammad‘s call for change within specific parameters,” he added. “Those parameters would permit the changing of anything that did not threaten their system and infringe on their power. But this message is not here to integrate. It is here to dominate. Islam is here to dominate! This was an ideological struggle, the sole purpose of which was to organize Man’s affairs in accordance with a system revealed by Allah.”
Three members of the Libyan parliament representing tribes that were brutally attacked by Islamic militia both during and after the coup that ousted Moammar Gadhafi charge Hillary Clinton is the “Butcher of Libya.”
“Hillary is behind all the terrorist groups controlling Libya,” Shibani said. “Hillary is behind Ansar al-Sharia, behind the militia in Misurata who destroyed a great part of Libya and displaced 2 million people from their lands because they were accused of being loyal to Gadhafi. He said the Libyans remaining inside are displaced all over the country and not allowed to return to their homes, contrary to international human law. The lawmakers accused Clinton of international crimes, beginning with the failure of the State Department to intervene when Islamic militia allowed the tribes supporting Gadhafi to be dislodged from their traditional tribal homes. They expressed horror that Clinton’s State Department allowed the Islamic militia after ousting Gadhafi to engage in genocidal violence that was particularly brutal against the various black African tribes that supported the Libyan dictator. The jihadists buried their victims in mass graves, raping thousands of women and imprisoning thousands more along with their children, the parliament members said. The imprisoned women were tortured and thousands of young girls were turned into sex slaves, they said. “Even today, Hillary continues to work with the radical Islamic militia in an effort to control Tripoli and the oil fields, while disregarding the atrocities committed against the people,” Shibani said. She has done nothing to help women and children in Libya,” he responded. “Under Gadhafi women were free to be educated, women were not required to wear any special clothing and women were free to walk the streets.”
Now, he said there are “thousands of families destroyed by the radicals, with the women now living under Shariah law with no education, no good health, no schools, no good food, because of Hillary Clinton’s policies.”
The extreme brutality unleashed by the mercenaries and Islamic fighters who joined Libyan-based jihadists to oust leader Moammar Gadhafi with the backing of Hillary Clinton’s State Department and NATO is demonstrated in three videos released to WND. Toensing pointed out the Secure Embassy Construction and Counterterrorism Act of 1999, or Secca, was passed in response to the near-simultaneous bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania on Aug. 7, 1998, in which thousands were injured and 220 people were killed, including 12 Americans. “Mrs. Clinton either personally waived these security provisions as required by law or she violated the law by delegating the waiver to someone else,” Toensing concluded. WND reported that as the allied bombing of Libya began in 2011, the Obama administration rejected an offer by Gadhafi to abdicate in a deal to be brokered by Rear Adm. Chuck Kubrick with AFRICOM in Stuttgart, Germany, in March 2011. WND also reported the Obama White House and the State Department under the management of Hillary Clinton “changed sides in the war on terror” in 2011 by implementing a policy of facilitating the delivery of weapons to the al-Qaida-dominated rebel militias in Libya attempting to oust Gadhafi from power, the Citizens Commission on Benghazi concluded in a report. The Obama administration also rebuffed the efforts of former Rep. Curt Weldon to negotiate with Moammar Gadhafi an offer to step down, WND reported. Weldon, who served as vice-chairman of the Armed Services Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee, told WND of his private trip to Tripoli in April 2011. “Was Gadhafi prepared to leave office?” Weldon asked rhetorically. “Absolutely, unequivocally, without any doubt in my mind, Gadhafi was ready to leave office. There were no other conditions except he wanted to leave Libya with what he called ‘dignity.’” WND published visual proof of Clinton’s State Department secretly provided weapons to radical Islamic jihadists in Libya in an effort to support the U.S.-backed NATO bombing in 2011. In one of the videos published by WND, Moussa Ibrahim, Gadhafi’s information minister and official spokesman, displayed to reporters in 2011 a cache of weapons and ammunition seized from a ship from Qatar intercepted by the Libyan Coast Guard off Libya’s coast. The report said other Middle Eastern nations after the fall of Gadhafi “rushed to make substantial donations to the Clinton Foundation, fearful that they would be the next victims of Hillary’s wrath.”
Wikileaks' Assange Slams Media For Defending “Demon” Clinton, Who Will ‘Put Nooses Around Everyone’s Necks’
Since Assange founded Wikileaks, with its state mission of exposing government secrecy, lies, and misbehavior, he has successfully angered some of the world’s most powerful people. In a story at True Pundit over the weekend, the world learned that Hillary Clinton once tried to “nominate” Assange for assassination! Clinton aide Ann-Marie Slaughter emailed Clinton and aides Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin and Jake Sullivan with the subject, “RE an SP memo on possible legal and nonlegal strategies re Wikileaks.” The case is clear, folks. Once again Hillary Clinton has proven that she cannot be trusted with the reins of leadership. She is a loose cannon who answers her “problems” with violence, even when such action is likely illegal. Clinton cannot be trusted to defend our laws because she cannot be trusted to OBEY our laws.
Who is Marc Turi and what does he know about Benghazi and Hillary's email cover up? In case you haven't yet heard about this story, here's the skinny. The Daily Caller reports that in March of 2011, "Turi applied for a State Department license to export arms to Libya, looking to seize upon the opportunity that arose from the brewing civil war. That application was rejected." Then allegedly, after some email exchanges with Christopher Stevens - the man who would eventually be appointed by Barack Obama as the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and later die in the tragic attack on the Benghazi Libya Consulate - the application was approved. The Daily Caller again: "He applied again and switched the destination country to Qatar. That application was approved. According to The New York Times, the Obama administration assented to Qatar shipping weapons to rebels in Libya." Then, two months later, Department of Homeland Security agents raided Turi's home in Arizona, and the Justice Department charged Turi, alleging he hid his intent to ship weapons and ammunition to Libya in direct violation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 170. But Turi and his lawyer tell a different story, and only Congress can get at the truth before it is too late:
By accumulating vast amounts of data and examining the relationships between various extremist groups and their sources of funding, Haney had identified dozens of terrorists throughout the years, arguably preventing numerous attacks. However, in 2009, it was Haney himself who was targeted by his own government. He tells his story in the book "See Something, Say Nothing," but his story is also the most powerful part of "The Enemies Within." He recounts in "The Enemies Within:" "I finished a case up, I put it in the system. There were 67 records related to the case, individuals and organizations. But then about two weeks after I put the case into the system, I went on vacation and received a call from my colleague. He said they had removed the records from the system. They didn't just modify them, they completely obliterated them, took all of them out." Haney argues this dramatic action had devastating consequences for the American people. The specific records the (Owebenedict) government deleted turned out to be directly relevant to terrorist attacks that took place later. "Those are the records related to the network of mosques and organizations operating in the United States that is linked to the San Bernardino shooting and to the Orlando shooting," he recalled. Indeed, Haney states in the video the federal government not only removed the records but actually investigated him for simply doing his job. "They said essentially that I did not have the authority to put those records into the system, even though I had been commended by the National Targeting Center for finding 300 terrorists," Haney says in the film. "So, essentially, the last three years of my career, I was under investigation by three different government agencies, all at the same time. They essentially determined that I was more of a threat than these terrorist groups."
“So all told, with the permanent 130,000 green cards and the temporary visas, we’re bringing in 260,000 Muslims per year from countries in the Middle East, Asia, North Africa — countries that are Shariah compliant and are diametrically opposed to American values of freedom of speech, equal treatment of women.” Hohmann predicted this population shift, if not reversed, will have dramatic effects on American social norms and culture. “Go right down on the line of those ‘liberal’ values, even treatment of homosexuals – these people will have none of it if [Muslims] are a majority in our country or even anything close to it,” he warned. Gallups bemoaned how someone can be called a racist and a bigot simply for loving “common sense, logic, reason and this nation.” “The fact that the vast majority of the Muslims that are shipped into our nation, they truly don’t express any desire to assimilate,” he said. “In fact, most of their expressed desire is to basically change America through their local Muslim communities and Shariah law. They do despise our values.” The pastor acknowledged there are some exceptions but claimed, “For the most part, these people hate us.” Hohmann agreed and referenced polls in Europe that show huge percentages of ostensibly Western Muslims favor the implementation of Shariah law. “We’re bringing people in in record numbers, but we’re not requiring them to assimilate,” said Hohmann. “And so we have large Muslim populations living in enclaves in large cities, but not only in large cities. Under Barack Obama we have been bringing them into medium-sized and even much smaller cities, places like Twin Falls, Idaho, and Stone Mountain, Georgia and Owatonna, Minnesota, for heaven’s sake!” The reporter also pointed out the economic motivations behind the importation of this population. “Wherever there seems to be a meat plant, by the way, seems to be a big draw like the one in Owatonna,” he said. “And then you’ve got the Chobani yogurt plant in Twin Falls, Idaho – 30 percent of that plant is Muslim refugees.” In the end, Hohmann said “Stealth Invasion” reveals nothing less than a plan to demographically transform the United States, even as it endangers America’s national security.

The U.S. government has built fencing along roughly one-third of the 1,933-mile southern border with Mexico. The border state with the longest boundary—Texas, at about 1,241 miles—is covered by only 115 miles of fencing. Trump and congressional Republicans say they could use a 2006 law signed by President George W. Bush called the Secure Fence Act that mandated a minimum of 700 miles of “physical barrier” on the southern border without specifying any particular location where fencing must be built. The law was never fully implemented, and it did not set a deadline for the fencing to be built, meaning Trump could pick up where Bush left off. The incoming administration just needs money from Congress to do it. According to Customs and Border Protection, an agency of the Department of Homeland Security, there is currently about 654 miles of fencing along the border. Christiana Coleman, a spokeswoman for Customs and Border Protection, told The Daily Signal 36 miles of that fencing is double-layered and 14 miles have three layers. Coleman said the fencing consists of roughly 350 miles of single-layer pedestrian fences, most which stand about 18 feet, and 300 miles of low-level vehicle barriers that can be easily bypassed by pedestrians. The fencing is not continuous. Building a wall or fence in Texas is especially difficult because U.S. citizens privately own about two-thirds of the border in the state, according to a Government Accountability Office report. The government would have to purchase land from Texans to build on it.
Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle PAC’s own “Daisy” remake that presents the truth, which is that when it comes to Hillary Clinton’s air war policy in Syria against Russia, she is the real danger. The Clinton ad highlights video of Trump supporting other nations receiving nuclear weapons — mind you, to protect themselves from Iran and China — attempting to perpetuate a belief of a World War 3 with Trump as president. This oversimplification of Trump’s position ignores one obvious reality — the issue of nuclear policy is the issue of U.S.-Russian relations. And when it comes to Russia and in particular Russian satellite Syria, it is Trump’s plan that avoids war, and Clinton’s plan that could provoke war. Clinton wants a no-fly zone in Syria — which is being patrolled by Russian fighter jets. What if she enforce the no-fly zone, wouldn’t that mean war with Russia? That is the terrifying premise the Eagle PAC ad explores. Clinton is featured in the Eagle PAC ad at the second presidential debate on Oct. 10, reminding viewers that, “I, when I was Secretary of State, advocated, and I still advocate today, a no-fly zone and safe zones. We need some leverage against the Russians.” The video then cuts to Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein appearing on C-Span on Oct. 12, warning that “It’s now Hillary Clinton who wants to start an air war with Russia over Syria by calling for a no-fly zone. We have 2,000 nuclear missiles on hair-trigger alert, and Mikhail Gorbachev, the former premier of the Soviet Union is saying we are closer to a nuclear war than we have ever been.” Stein continues ominously, “Under Hillary Clinton, we could slide into nuclear war very quickly from her declared policy in Syria.”
The Brotherhood’s revealing document, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for North America,” which was seized by the FBI in 2004, states that the brothers “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house…. To accomplish this task of infiltrating and destroying from within, the Brotherhood needs useful idiots, just like the communists did. Middle East Forum, which is headed by the noted historian and Islam scholar Daniel Pipes, puts a new twist on the old theme by calling those on the list “Useful Infidels.” MEF’s Islamist Watch project has published a “Field Guide to Useful Infidels” for journalists that includes what it believes are 15 pro-Islamist puppets. Among them are politicians like Chris Christie, CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour, actor Ben Affleck and Secretary of State John Kerry.
In fact, on the Obama administration’s watch, the war on terrorism has expanded to new frontiers and new countries, with very little evidence that those campaigns will enhance American security or end anytime soon. U.S. soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines have literally never had a day off in the last eight years, whether the mission involves conducting night raids on Taliban hideouts in Afghanistan, bombing missions against Islamic State oil rigs in eastern Syria, or special operators advising Iraqi forces as they push into Mosul. U.S. soldiers, in fact, continue to die in Iraq and Afghanistan
upon Trump approving the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines overriding the previous Administration’s obstruction, Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa issued a statement praising Trump: “The construction of the K[eystone] XL and Dakota pipelines will help put thousands of Americans, including Teamster members, to work. We are pleased with this decision to move forward on these long overdue projects that will support working families and increase our energy security.” After his meeting with labor leaders on Jan. 23, including Laborers’ International Union of North America President Terry O’Sullivan, SMART sheet metal workers’ union President Joseph Sellers, United Brotherhood of Carpenters President Doug McCarron and United Association President Mark McManus, Trump earned more plaudits.
(DemoCrapCare) Any repeal legislation will have a transition period for those who got coverage through Obamacare to move to new plans. And second, they will have more choices and better options. Win. Win The Obama administration claims 20 million more Americans today have health care due to Obamacare. The reality is that when you look at the actual net gains over the past two years since the program was fully implemented, the number is 14 million, and of that, 11.8 million (84 percent) were people given the “gift” of Medicaid. And new research shows that even fewer people will be left without insurance after the repeal of Obamacare. Numbers are still being crunched, but between statistics released by the Congressional Budget Office and one of the infamous architects of Obamacare, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Jonathan Gruber, it’s estimated that anywhere from 2 to 7 million people now on Medicaid would have qualified for the program even without Obamacare. A University of Virginia study found that for eight different surgical procedures, Medicaid patients were more likely to die than privately insured or uninsured patients. They were also more likely to suffer complications. That’s because increasing numbers of doctors aren’t accepting Medicaid. As a Louisiana woman told The New York Times, “My Medicaid card is useless for me right now. It’s a useless piece of plastic. I can’t find an orthopedic surgeon or a pain management doctor who will accept Medicaid.”
people running a business have an uncanny ability to figure out what's popular with their customers. Any "popular" features of Obamacare obviously, manifestly, inevitably will be preserved by the free market. If parents like keeping their useless millennial kids on their plans, guess what? Any insurance company forced to compete with other insurance companies WILL OFFER THAT. (If parents want to pay for their “kids” individual plans until they are 50, let them voluntarily do that.) As for covering people with "pre-existing conditions" -- there are pre-existing conditions and pre-existing conditions. Does this mean the unfortunate few with some exorbitantly expensive medical problem? Or does it mean people who have a "pre-existing condition" because they waited to be diagnosed with cancer before buying insurance? There aren't 22 million people with horrifyingly expensive medical conditions. They're being used as the baby seals to sell subsidized health care for the irresponsible.
when Loventhal learned he would be faced with the added expense of providing his more than 50 employees with health insurance come Jan. 1—he estimated it would cost between $70,000 and $100,000 annually—Loventhal decided to close Noshville’s doors before the provision of Obamacare overseeing businesses, the employer mandate, goes fully into effect.
“It’s an onerous bill, and for a small business, it’s a lot of time [to comply],” he said. “I’ve been studying this for three years, and I really couldn’t come up with a good answer, and I feel sorry for closing this business.”
A popular New York City restaurant is closing its doors after 25 years because of what the owners call a stifling regulatory environment that treats the restaurant as a “cash machine.” China Fun, a Chinese restaurant in Manhattan, announced its Jan. 3 closure because of increases in minimum wage and a city atmosphere that treats “mom-and-pop” eateries like cash cows to pay for all the ills of society, Albert Wu told reporters. Wu is a representative of China Fun. “The climate for small businesses like ours in New York have become such that it’s difficult to justify taking risks and running—never mind starting—a legitimate mom-and-pop business,” read a letter posted by the owners in the Chinese restaurant’s front door.
(WIC it, random drug testing, work required, term limited) Back in 2012 a federal investigation uncovered evidence that food-stamp recipients were using the benefit to buy drugs, weapons and other contraband from unscrupulous vendors. A year later Judicial Watch broke a story, based on testimony and other evidence provided by a whistleblower, about the U.S. government knowingly giving illegal immigrants food stamps for decades. That was followed by another disturbing scheme in which SNAP benefits were being sold online using social media such as Facebook, Twitter and ecommerce websites like Craigslist and eBay. Earlier this year federal authorities in south Florida busted the largest food-stamp fraud operation in U.S. history. Twenty-two defendants in the largely black and Hispanic areas of Miami-Dade County known as Opa-Locka and Hialeah swindled the government out of $13 million by fraudulently trading food stamps for cash.
“I would rather have hundreds of my tax dollars used to abort an unwanted child now than have hundreds of thousands used for public assistance later.” it is unbecoming of an educated person to even consider such a justification for the taking of innocent life. If you are not completely appalled by that remark then you probably did not grasp its ramifications. Hence, it may be time to dissect it with a little thought experiment. So try to imagine the following: Ron Rump is running for president. Some see him as the reincarnation of Reagan. Others see him as a horse’s ass. He says illegal immigrants are rapists. He also expresses a desire to ban Muslims from entering the country. Predictably, media leftists start foaming at the mouth and doing everything they can to stop him. Then he drops this bombshell in response to a question about what can be done to reduce the welfare rolls saying, “I think we should just kill everyone who is on welfare.” First of all, don’t take the thought experiment literally. No presidential candidate of either major party would ever make such a suggestion. Could anything possibly be more offensive than proposing a reduction in the welfare rolls by the simple expedient of killing everyone who is on welfare? Actually, there is at least one suggestion that is slightly more offensive. In fact, my “liberal” friend already proffered it. Put simply, killing someone who you merely suspect might one day wind up on welfare – and who hasn’t done anything wrong yet - is about as offensive as it gets. If you still are not appalled then rethink the ramifications with the help of another brief thought experiment. Imagine the following: A man suspects his wife is about to leave him. He does not want her to stay because he is having an affair. But he knows that the divorce will be expensive. He will likely be paying alimony for years unless and until his future ex-wife remarries. So he hires a hit man to kill her.

Police in South St. Paul, Minnesota, have revealed that a homosexual elementary-school teacher and his “husband” sexually abused eight underage boys since at least 2013, according to a report released Tuesday. Aric Babbitt, 40, and Matthew Deyo, 36, came to the attention of local authorities Aug. 14 after a 16-year-old former student of Babbitt’s revealed an “ongoing sexual relationship” with the two men to his parents, reported the St. Paul Pioneer Press. This week’s report was the culmination of a four-month investigation that revealed seven other victims of the married pair. Babbitt and Deyo died 10 days later in a murder-suicide.

A Texas court has dented President Obama’s legacy of promoting alternative sexual lifestyles, including transgenderism, blocking a rule that would force doctors to do sex-change operations even if it would violate their religious beliefs or if they believe it would harm the patient. This case was brought by the Becket Fund on behalf of the Christian Medical & Dental Associations, the Franciscan Alliance and the states of Texas, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska and Wisconsin. Several other cases have challenged the mandate, including one brought on behalf of the Religious Sisters of Mercy, Sacred Heart Mercy Health Care Center in Jackson, Minnesota; Sacred Heart Mercy Health Care Center in Alma, Mississippi; SMP Health System; the University of Mary; and North Dakota. “Today’s ruling ensures that doctors’ best medical judgment will not be replaced with political agendas and bureaucratic interference.” The decision protects more than 900,000 doctors – “nearly every doctor in the U.S,” according to Becket – from being required to “perform gender transition procedures on children.” Obama’s plan also would have cost U.S. taxpayers nearly $1 billion, the group said. While the government’s doctors in the military are not required to follow such a rule, other doctors would have been, Becket said, and would have faced “potential lawsuits or job loss” for their opinion that “gender reassignment surgery” might not improve health outcomes. “This court ruling is an across-the-board victory that will ensure that deeply personal medical decisions, such as gender transition procedures, remain between families and their doctor,” said Windham. The judge found: “Prior to the passage of [Obamacare] in 2010 and for more than forty years after the passage of Title IX in 1972, no federal court or agency had concluded ‘sex’ should be defined to include gender identity.” WND reported that Beckett cites a transgender information website that reports “up to 94 percent of children with gender dysphoria (77 to 94 percent in one set of studies and 73 to 88 percent in another) will grow out of their dysphoria naturally and live healthy lives without the need for surgery or lifelong hormone regimens.”
This week, the dating service Match released a new survey on sex and singles conducted by Research Now. Included in the data are the revelations that 34 percent of singles have had sex before a first date and that millennials are 48 percent more likely to have sex before a first date than all other generations of singles in order “to see if there is a connection.” In a USA Today story on the survey, sex therapist Kimberly Resnick Anderson suggests millennials have inverted the relationship process, using sex to determine if they want to pursue anything further with that person.
The Planned Parenthood annual report provides Americans—whether they are pro-life or pro-abortion—with important information about abortion incidence and other services provided by the nonprofit organization, which receives over half a billion dollars from taxpayers each year. The report data tell us, for example, that 94 percent of Planned Parenthood’s “pregnancy services” were abortions, and less than 1 percent were adoption referrals in 2014-2015. The report tells us that in the same year, Planned Parenthood performed 323,999 abortions—one every 98 seconds. It tells us that in the last three reported years (2012, 2013, and 2014), Planned Parenthood has aborted nearly 1 million baby boys and baby girls. The report data also tell us that its contraceptive services have dropped. Total services have dropped. The number of unique patients served has dropped. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood reports almost $59 million in excess revenue for fiscal year 2015 and more than $1.4 billion in net assets. In other words, the Planned Parenthood annual report provides important data and context to policymakers as they debate whether or not the abortion provider should continue receiving taxpayer funding. We’re over a week into February and Planned Parenthood isn’t giving a reason for the most recent report’s delay—or saying if there will be a report at all.
Kennedy had decided on Oct. 2, 1963, the month before he was assassinated, to begin the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Vietnam. Kennedy's exit strategy was effectively buried with him. "I don't think that unless a greater effort is made by the government to win popular support that the war can be won out there," Kennedy told newsman Walter Cronkite on Sept. 2, 1963. "In the final analysis, it is (Vietnam's) war. They are the ones who have to win it or lose it." In Syria these days, there aren't many willing fighters left to take on the Islamic State. Most of them have flooded into Europe, thanks to the sort of lax immigration policies favored by Clinton and the world leader she claims to admire most, German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The Persian Gulf regimes -- Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait -- that funded the rebels who ultimately formed the Islamic State have also managed to spare millions of dollars for the Clinton Foundation. These generous donors want Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his regime to fall. It took more than 40 years to confirm that at least part of the Gulf of Tonkin incident was fabricated. Are you willing to wait 40 years to find out whether things said during a Clinton presidency were meant to rally public support for prolonged military intervention?
As Dinesh D’Souza points out in Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democrat Party, Clinton also got her education from gangsters. The former First Lady’s life as a mafiosa began upon meeting political gangster Saul Alinsky in high school. She recognized Alinsky’s skill, wrote her college thesis on him, and she even invited him to speak at Wellesley College during her time there. She would later become the embodiment of Alinsky’s tactics. D’Souza writes that in addition to scamming the University of Chicago, Alinsky fell in with smaller gangs like the Sholto and the 42 Mob. The real prize for him, though, was to get in with the Al Capone crew-- and he did after months of trying with no success. He had no problem calling Frank Nitti, Capone’s number two man, “Professor.” He had no problem with the mob’s little habit of murdering people. In fact, he even shocked Nitti by his idea of using a local hitman to save money. A hardened gangster believed the young Alinsky was callous. Alinsky soon recognized his problem: the shakedown men tend to get knocked off. According to Hillary’s America, this was the point when Alinsky decided to enter politics. It was a legal way to extract money without risking your head. Alinsky said during one interview, “I learned a hell of a lot about the uses and abuses of power from the mob, lessons that stood me in good stead later on.”
Hillary Clinton violated the Espionage Act during the debate by irresponsibly divulging America’s nuclear response time to the entire world. And I can assure you our enemies are all meeting trying to formulate potential responses to this. She has demonstrated in her public and official capacity that she’s irresponsible, dangerous, and nasty! After that, Hillary spoke out against Putin and Donald Trump’s admiration of him. As Secretary of State she knew what Russia’s capability for cyberwarfare was and yet she put classified information on a private server where it was vulnerable. In addition, it’s ironic that the headlines are about Trump refusing to accept the election results and not about Hillary releasing classified information on network television. Trump said that he might not accept the results. However, this is not a precedent as Al Gore did everything humanly possible to overturn the 2000 election results. Also, voter fraud is going on all over the country. The voting system is sitting in disrepair because Democrats want it in disrepair; it’s vulnerable to fraud. It could take just one state where fraud occurs to make a difference in this election.
an incredulous Spicer shot back with, “I guess my question would be, ‘A special prosecutor for what?'” ABC’s Jonathan Karl pressed on, “To look into the whole Russian connection.” But Spicer was having none of it. With more than a trace of frustration, he recounted how, “We’ve heard the same people, the same anecdotes, and we’ve heard reports over and over again,” and nothing new or newsworthy had emerged. He noted the question of Russian influence has been investigated by intelligence agencies, the House and the Senate, and yet nothing had come of it other than the original unsubstantiated allegations by unnamed sources.
(so smart democrap diplomacy) “[Russia is] interested in keeping Assad in power. So I, when I was secretary of state, advocated and I advocate today a no-fly zone and safe zones. We need some leverage with the Russians, because they are not going to come to the negotiating table for a diplomatic resolution, unless there is some leverage over them.” That was Hillary Clinton in the second presidential debate on Oct. 9 saying flat out that as President of the United States, she would impose a U.S.-enforced no-fly zone in Syria to keep Russia from bombing targets there. That, even though the U.S. Marine Gen. James Dunford, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, just testified to the Senate Armed Services Committee on Sept. 22 that “for us to control all of the airspace in Syria would require us to go to war against Syria and Russia.” And, even though on Oct. 6 the Kremlin had already warned it would shoot down U.S. war planes in Syria.
Daniel Horowitz, senior editor at Conservative Review, finds great irony in the sanctuary city phenomenon. He noted the federal government “crushes” states on issues such as religious liberty and election laws when states try to exercise rightful control.
“Yet when it comes to the one area that is clearly within the purview of the federal government, an enumerated power given to Congress to regulate immigration for the sovereignty of an entire union, somehow the states and localities are able to get away with thwarting federal law,” Horowitz mused to WND. Chumley, author of “The Devil in DC: Winning Back the Country From the Beast in Washington,” encouraged Americans to remember Kate Steinle, the San Francisco woman who was gunned down in broad daylight while walking on a pier with her father. Her killer was an illegal immigrant who had previously been deported several times for felonies. But San Francisco’s sanctuary policies allowed him to roam free, and while roaming free, he killed. Chumley, for her part, suggested if an illegal alien taking shelter in a sanctuary city commits an additional crime, Trump should use the full force of his Justice Department to prosecute the leaders responsible for the continuing sanctuary status – including going after punitive damages that could be awarded to the victims and families of victims.
When U.S. Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., said he didn’t see Donald Trump as a “legitimate president,” it wasn’t out of character.
After 37 years in Congress, that kind of rhetoric is in keeping with a highly partisan record of accusing all Republican presidential candidates of racism as well as calling for the impeachment of George W. Bush. Almost glossed over in Lewis’ questioning of Trump’s legitimacy was his reasoning. Just last week, in Senate testimony on the confirmation of Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., he suggested he might be another Democrap George Wallace, the late racist governor of the state.. In the 2008 presidential election, Lewis suggested Republican John McCain also represented a throwback to Democrap George Wallace, who Lewis seems to forget was a member of his party: He also played the race card against Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012, claiming if elected he would bring back segregation In 2010, he falsely accused tea-party demonstrators of using the “N-word” during an anti-Obamacare rally at the Capitol.
Four women who were horribly mistreated by Hillary and Bill Clinton—including Willey, Broaddrick and Jones—sat down with Trump a few hours before Sunday’s presidential debate. In a short video posted on Trump’s Facebook page, these women reinstated their support for Trump. They gave two main reasons: as women, they trust Trump, whereas they don’t trust Hillary—and they “believe Trump can lead us” and our country to greatness.
Moreover, the threat will continue in the years to come because of the “terrorist diaspora” from Syria and Iraq. Already in the last 15 years, the threat from homegrown terror has risen dramatically. There have been 171 homegrown jihadist plots in the U.S. since 9/11, and 86 percent of these incidents have either been discovered or happened since 2009, the report found. The following visuals help break down the threat in the U.S. from ISIS:
The headline to Josh Rogin’s editorial in the Washington Post is on point: “General Cartwright is paying the price for Hillary Clinton’s sins.” Cartwright could face up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The charge was that he lied to the FBI. Lying to the FBI is a crime… unless your name is Clinton. the Cartwright case just provides further proof that there is no equal justice in this country. It shows that the rule of law is dead. Last year, Petraeus cut a deal with the Justice Department after admitting he had lied to the FBI and passed hundreds of highly classified documents to his biographer and mistress Paula Broadwell. He pleaded guilty to a single misdemeanor of mishandling classified information and was sentenced to two years probation and a $100,000 fine. Clinton was not charged at all for what FBI Director James B. Comey called “extremely careless” handling of “very sensitive, highly classified information.”

Rosneft was formerly known as the Yukos Oil Company, Russia’s largest energy enterprise. In 2003, Mr. Putin decided he wanted it. Yukos’s founder, the oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, was becoming a threat to Mr. Putin. He jailed Mr. Khodorkovsky on bogus fraud charges, seized Yukos assets and bankrupted the company. Mr. Khodorkovsky served ten years behind bars. Other Yukos officials were jailed or fled the country. American and Russian investors were robbed. The Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague awarded investors $50 billion in damages, but the decision was later overturned. Some might say Mr. Khodorkovsky got off easy. Here’s a list of Putin critics who ended up dead. Yukos was raped and pillaged and its assets were transferred to Rosneft. Control of the company was given to a key Putin lieutenant, Igor Sechin. Like Mr. Putin, Mr. Sechin is a former KGB agent. Mr. Sechin is a leading figure in the siloviki—literally, “strongmen”—faction of former law enforcement, military and intelligence figures around Mr. Putin.
Freedom of association is a vital human right. According to news accounts, Jackie Evancho and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir are slated to sing during the inaugural festivities; Elton John and Andrea Bocelli have let it be known that they're staying away. The Radio City Rockettes will be part of the show — but any dancers who wish to opt out are free to do so. Heat Street reported that many Washington-area homeowners who had planned to rent out rooms through Airbnb pulled their listings once they realized that they wouldn't be sharing their homes with Clinton enthusiasts. "I have a visceral reaction to the thought of having a Trump supporter in my house," one owner said. "No amount of money could make me change my mind. It's about moral principles." Others putting their money where their anti-Trump principles are include fashion gurus Sophie Theallet and André Leon Talley, who announced that they will refuse to dress Melania Trump, a former model, out of revulsion for her husband. I support them all — the singers who refuse to sing for Trump, the fashion designers who refuse to design, the landlords who refuse to rent, the dancers who refuse to dance. No one should be forced to play a role in a celebration they want nothing to do with, or to hire themselves out to clients they would prefer not to serve. And if a caterer turns down a request to prepare the meals for Trump's inauguration? Or a florist declines to provide the floral arrangements? Or a calligrapher says "thanks but no thanks" to addressing the invitations? I'd back them, too, and for reasons having nothing to do with Trump or Republicans or inaugurations — and everything to do with freedom of association. The right to discriminate — to choose with whom we will and won't associate — is vital to human liberty. It would be ludicrous for the Trump committee to sue Andrea Bocelli or Phoebe Pearl to compel their involvement in the inaugural. It is just as ludicrous, or ought to be, to sue florists and bakers to compel their involvement in weddings they prefer to avoid. Tolerance and pluralism are important values in a free society. So are choice and association. Your choices may not be mine; my preferred associations may not be yours. The state can't force Elton John to take a gig he doesn't want. It shouldn't be able to force anyone else to, either. (Religious Freedom & Association for Bakers, florists, photographers etc..)

#29: Mississippi Church Burning Committed by Black Man, Not Trump Voter
Police in a small, predominantly black Mississippi town have now proven that a black man burned a local black church and left Trump related graffiti. The “hate crime” aspect of the investigation has been canceled.
(tolerant democraps, party of peace) One way these Hillary Clinton fanatics are trying to “convince” electors to violate their respective state laws and break the rules by switching their votes from Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton, is by threatening to kill them. The Detroit News reported on one such elector from Michigan who’s bound to vote for Donald Trump. His name is Michael Banerian: “You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’ ” he said. “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”
after 8 years, the current 1.3 million non-defense civilian federal workforce is currently staffed with loyalists to President Barack Obama, who may not wish to implement Trump administration policies and may even seek to undermine the President-elect. Congress could simply defund the personnel budgets of non-defense civilian departments and agencies, forcing an immediate 10 to 20 percent reduction in the workforce. Specifically, this would be done by taking last year’s enacted full-time equivalent number for each department, agency and office, and then cutting it by 10 to 20 percent. Also, it would be necessary to defund existing preferences under federal rules being given to those laid off being later rehired on a first-in-line basis. Federal regulations, called Reduction in Force at 5 CFR Part 351, generally dictate a last-in, first-out seniority system when it comes to layoffs. The last federal employees who were hired were by Obama. A 10 to 20 percent reduction of the federal workforce then would naturally hit Obama’s hires the hardest. Congressional Democrats would likely attempt to force a government shutdown ..Such a shutdown would be unsurprising, as it will be one of the few tactics available to Democrats whilst in the minority in the House and the Senate to stop Republican policies. To which, there is a simple solution: No back-pay for federal employees after the shutdown ends. Usually, after government shutdowns, non-essential personnel can expect to receive back-pay, essentially a paid vacation for their troubles during the shutdown. So, simply issue a warning that there will be no back-pay during the ensuing government shutdown, and suddenly the federal workforce, if not the unions whose job it is to protect those who have been there the longest, will be the biggest advocates of ending the shutdown immediately — even if it ultimately means an across-the-board reduction of the workforce. Self-preservation would kick in just from a monthly cashflow basis for most employees who have bills to pay. Nobody in the federal government is entitled to their jobs, and with a Republican president, government shutdowns should no longer be leverage used to enact Democratic policies or to protect government employee constituencies. No back-pay during government shutdowns would take away leverage Democrats usually wield. This would increase the likelihood of success in a fight over the civil service issue, and critically, once Democrats capitulate, over any other issue in future policy-based funding battles in continuing resolutions and omnibus spending bills, like Obamacare.
Bill Clinton's Kosovo War isn't quite over. Eighteen years after NATO forces invaded Kosovo to protect Kosovar Albanians from Serbian militias, passions continue to simmer. A residual peacekeeping force, Kosovo Force, remains deployed as a "peace support operation." It does not have a lot of firepower. Cynics may argue no Balkan war is ever over, and given Balkan history, the cynics have a case. However, Clinton sold the Kosovo War as a different Balkan war. NATO wasn't invading to change borders. NATO was intervening in Kosovo to protect civilians from Serbian dictator Slobodan Milosevic. His military forces were engaged in the "ethnic cleansing" of Albanians in Kosovo. Milosevic was a genuine genocidaire. At his instigation, Serb militias had committed mass murder in Bosnia. Clinton wouldn't permit genocide in Kosovo. Serbs saw the situation very differently. Serbs still regard Kosovo as the cradle of their civilization. Muslim Turks had taken Kosovo from Eastern Orthodox Serbs in 1389. Serbia finally recovered the province. Yugoslavia may have disintegrated, but Serbs weren't going to let predominantly-Muslim ethnic Albanians have Kosovo.
Famed economist Dr. Arthur Laffer and writer Michelle Balconi, sit down with the Conservative Book Club to discuss their new economics book — for kids! The book is called Let’s Chat About Economics: Basic Principles Through Everyday Scenarios.
Laffer, the legendary Reagan supply-sider who came up with the Laffer Curve, and Balconi, have written a wonderful book to help parents teach their children about free market economics. The genius they employ is using real-life situations they can relate too, i.e. grocery store shopping, yard sales, etc.
(democrap’s $15/hr to “help” low income workers get paid $0/hr; hurt them further getting rid of first job work experience)
McDonald’s is planning to expand its digital self-serve ordering stations and table service to all of its 14,000 stores in the U.S.
According to CNN The changes are already starting to show up at locations in Florida, New York and Southern California, where 500 restaurants have been updated. Restaurants in San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, D.C. and Seattle will get upgrades in early 2017. The Daily Caller points out The locations that are seeing the first automated kiosks closely correlate with the fight for a $15 minimum wage.
Romano said. “Unfortunately, so long as 42 U.S.C. § 14141, a section of the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which gives the attorney general the power to prosecute police misconduct, is the law of the land, this can continue to happen,” Romano continued. “In addition to executive action by incoming Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Congress needs to act to repeal this section of law to truly get the Justice Department out of the business of regulating local police departments,” Romano continued. Trump’s nomination of Sessions could very well explain the timing of the Justice Department’s announcement. Sessions is not only an outspoken proponent of law enforcement, but he is also a fierce critic of consent decrees.
The ‘manmade’ EMP threat includes a much higher amplitude low frequency component and contains high frequency components that are not part of the ‘natural’ EMP threat,” he said. Cooper explained that protecting the grid from the manmade EMP threat also protects it from the natural EMP threat, but the converse is not true. He noted the new Department of Homeland Security secretary, John F. Kelley, promised during his confirmation hearing to address the issue. Kelly was asked for his assessment of the threat posed by electromagnetic pulse, ground-based missile defense, cyberattack and physical attacks to the nation’s critical infrastructure. “All these threats, in addition space weather, pose potentially catastrophic dangers to U.S. infrastructure, particularly our energy, transportation and telecommunications networks, which are the lifeblood of our economy,” Kelly said.
Thomas Sowell has just published a revised and enlarged edition of his classic "Wealth, Poverty and Politics." At the very beginning, he quotes Alexander Hamilton, who said, "The wealth of nations depends upon an infinite variety of causes." The book's 16 chapters apply Hamilton's notion to domestic, as well as international, differences in wealth. The ancient Greeks had geometry, philosophy, architecture and literature at a time when Britain was a land of illiterate tribal people living at a primitive level. Of course, by the end of the 19th century, Britain was far ahead of the Greeks and ultimately controlled one-quarter of the planet's land. Such historic reversals have occurred elsewhere. The ancient Chinese were far ahead of Europeans, but by the 19th century, the relative positions of the Chinese and Europeans were reversed. Just these two examples prove that the same people are not always on top.
In “More than Meets the Eye,” Richard A. Swenson, M.D. has assembled a mind-boggling array of facts about the human body and brain that should leave any reader in a state of awe, regardless of theology.
“Would you be willing to impose this belief on others by banning child rape?”
His answer will, of course, be “yes.” Nonetheless, you may want to reinforce the point and solidify the direction of the conversation by making him acknowledge that preventing people from raping children is a question of objective morality rather than some matter of arbitrary preference.
5. “Why do you believe that rape is more serious than murder?”
come clean by confessing the following: Presently, I support the legality of abortion because I am sexually active and unwilling to take responsibility for my own conduct. I hope that if I impregnate a woman who knows I am personally pro-life she will just slip away and take care of the problem without me knowing about it. Of course, such a “man” was never actually pro life in any meaningful sense of the word. Once you ask him how many women he is sleeping with the true motive for his cowardly stance will usually be revealed.
Westerners in Europe are tragically experiencing just how dangerous and destructive unfettered Islamic immigration can be for women in particular. Sweden has become known as the “rape capital of the west,” with a staggering 77.6% rapes being committed by foreigners. As was widely reported, Germany witnessed a horrific chain of gang rapes this most recent New Year’s Eve, as a direct result of Mrs. Clinton’s hero, Angela Merkel’s refusal to control her borders. This is the future that awaits American women if we should allow a self-avowed open borders champion like Hillary Clinton to capture the Presidency. Coincidentally, terrorist attacks committed by radical Islamists are also on the rise. In fact, our nation suffered three of them in the month of September alone, all by Islamic immigrants. The American people understand what’s going on, despite the mainstream media’s attempt to divert their attention. We’re fed up with being lectured about tolerance as our quiet, American communities continue to be transformed by those who refuse to assimilate. Mr. Trump understands what the average American, who simply wants to work hard, and provide a nice safe life for themselves and their families is thinking. Those who continue to live in their own bubble of pretentious and condescending elitism do so at their own peril. The choice is clear, open borders, or safe borders. Americans first, or Americans second. Choose wisely this November.
The trial showed that the men first developed relationships with the young girls by buying them cigarettes and alcohol before telling the girls they “owed” them. Then the men used threats of violence against the girls and their families to keep the girls both quiet and compliant. The trial heard Hussain used the main complainant for “his own gratification and passed her to friends, older brothers and associates”. Hussain’s cousins Mohammed Whied and Asif Ali, as well as his older brother Basharat Hussain, were also involved in the gang’s abuse of the girl…Ms Colborne said the girl live a “life of deceit and fear” after being lured into it by the gang. She said: “They told her she owed them something because they had given her cigarettes, alcohol and cannabis. “As time moved on, the threats became nasty in nature. They threatened to gang-rape her mother and they made it clear they were serious.” Ms Colborne said on one occasion, two of the defendants – Masoued Malik and Naeem Rafiq – took the girl to the flat of a man described by the girl as a ‘Kosovan refugee’ called Zalgai Ahmadi where she was forced to perform sex acts on a number of men. This is just the latest in the almost constant stream of disgusting Muslim sexual crime that is being reported out of Europe these days. England has suffered more than its fair share of these types of stories in recent years, the most ghastly being the uncovering of a massive web of interconnected child sex abuse cases in the city of Rotterham (where these men were also from).
Fast-Paced, Hard-Hitting Judicial Watch Clinton Scandals Panel Video Now Available Here
as a result of Durbin credit unions and banks have lost nearly all ability and incentive to offer debit card rewards programs and free checking accounts. The price cap set in place by Durbin has reduced revenue from interchange fees by between $6 billion and $8 billion, which means many issuers are no longer able to offer free checking accounts. If Congress were to repeal the Durbin Amendment, Americans would once again enjoy the benefits of free-market competition and avoid the detriments experienced today.
The revelations of the Watergate break-in and the subsequent cover-up orchestrated by the White House took time to unfold, most notably through the legendary reporting of the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. In contrast, the Trump campaign is pointing to the stark and rapidly accumulating evidence contained in thousands of hacked emails as well as damning undercover videos depicting “dirty tricks” operations of voter fraud and the planting of “mentally ill” violent agitators at Trump rallies led by a prominent Democratic official who visited the Obama White House more than 300 times.
Lipscomb said the undercover video investigation by James O’Keefe and the Wikileaks’ publication of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails provide “ample proof of criminal activity that would have made both Donald Segretti and G. Gordon Liddy blush.” The total bill for the Watergate operation, including payoffs, was less than $2 million.”
Lipscomb added, “The Clinton political criminals have an advantage the Nixon Watergate burglars never had – a compliant lapdog mainstream media that consistently refuses to report anything adverse to the Clinton campaign, despite the abundant evidence we now have from Clinton’s State Department emails, James O’Keefe’s videos and from the Podesta email file Wikileaks is making public.” During the third presidential debate Wednesday, Trump accused Clinton of paying people to incite violence at his rallies. “If you look at what came out today on the clips,” he said, “I was wondering what happened with my rally in Chicago and other rallies where we had such violence. She’s the one, and Obama, that caused the violence. They hired people, they paid them $1,500, and they’re on tape saying, be violent, cause fights, do bad things. “When I saw what they did, which is a criminal act by the way, where they’re telling people to go out and start fist-fights and start violence. In particular in Chicago, people were hurt, and people could’ve been killed in that riot. And that was now all on tape started by her.”
In the second Project Veritas video, Foval discussed options for Democrats to rig elections on a multi-state basis, noting party officials don’t necessarily need to know about gray-area or illegal actions. A 2011 Pew Center on the States study found that the records of a shocking 24 million voters, one in eight, on the nation’s voter registration rolls have serious errors. The errors included 1.8 million dead people still registered to vote, with an additional 2.75 million registered as active voters in more than one state. And in August 2012, the Pew Center reported on a database created by News21, a national investigative reporting project, that revealed some 2,068 cases of voter fraud has been litigated, with 23.7 percent of the cases involving absentee ballot fraud, 19.3 percent voter registration fraud and the remaining 57 percent comprising a variety of issues, including non-citizens casting ineligible ballots and voter impersonation fraud. Indeed, on May 30, 2012, the Obama Justice Department had ordered Florida’s election division to halt the systematic effort to purge the state’s voter rolls of non-citizens. A few months later, in the November 2012 presidential election, Romney lost Florida by fewer than 75,000 votes, making consequential the 180,000 Hispanic voters who were on the voting roles despite serious questions about their eligibility to vote. As WND reported, in the 2012 election Obama did not win a single state that requires photo IDs to vote, although he was victorious in four states that accept non-photo identification – Ohio, Virginia, Colorado and Washington. These four states accept as legitimate identification current utility bills, bank statements and paychecks. Perhaps James O’Keefe and Julian Assange, of Project Veritas and WikiLeaks, are 2016’s “Woodward and Bernstein.” (Benghazi coverup too, nobody died with Watergate)
Renowned reporter Bob Woodward called Hillary Clinton's connections to "pay for play" through the Clinton Foundation and the access she had given when she was secretary of state "corrupt" and something that voters should be troubled by, Woodward told Fox News' Chris Wallace on Sunday. "Yes, it’s corrupt; it’s a scandal,” Woodward told the "Fox News Sunday" panel
Trump outlined his potential first 100 days in office, and spoke of the need to change Washington, D.C. from within. Dubbing the plan his "Contract with the American Worker," Trump took a populist message and described six key actions that he will begin pursuing during his first day in office. Trump's plans centered around term limits, limiting federal regulations, and restrictions on who can become lobbyists. FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress; SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health); THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated; FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service; FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government; SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.
a vote for Trump is a vote against Hillary. And I need to vote against Hillary. I need to vote against the media. A simple protest vote for a third party or a write-in of my favorite comic book character might feel good for a moment. It might even give me a sense of moral superiority that lasts until her first executive order damaging something I hold dear – or her first Supreme Court nominee.
The entire pay-for-play schemes that have been uncovered in previous email leaks are now demonstrating Hillary Clinton is completely ok with selling illegal executive orders that bypass the constitutional process of congressional legislation in order to please her donors.
John Kerry, failed to comply with the Federal Records Act in trying to recover the Clinton emails. Judicial Watch explained that according to the law, “If an agency head becomes aware of ‘any actual, impending, or threatened unlawful removal … or destruction of records,’ he or she ‘shall notify the Archivist … and with the assistance of the Archivist shall initiate action through the attorney general for the recovery of records.'” The appeals court ruled: “Appellants sought the only relief provided by the Federal Records Act – an enforcement action through the attorney general. The original FBI investigation into Clinton’s email scandal concluded in July without charges, even though FBI chief James Comey said Clinton had been “extremely careless,” sending national security information through an unsecured private email server. A little more than one week before the election, emails were found on a laptop computer to which both Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner, who was being investigated in a sexting case, had access.
According to the DOJ: On Aug. 27, 2016, search warrants were executed at Martin’s residence in Glen Burnie, Maryland, including two storage sheds, as well as upon his vehicle and person. During execution of the warrants, investigators located hard-copy documents and digital information stored on various devices and removable digital media. A large percentage of the materials recovered from Martin’s residence and vehicle bore markings indicating that they were property of the U.S. government and contained highly classified information, including Top Secret and Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI). In addition, investigators located property of the U.S. government with an aggregate value in excess of $1,000, which Martin allegedly stole. The complaint alleges that among the classified documents found in the search were six classified documents obtained from sensitive intelligence and produced by a government agency in 2014.
If the NSA contractor, one Harold Thomas Martin III, is found guilty he could face up to 11 years in prison for “unauthorized removal and retention of classified materials” and for “theft of government property.”
The FBI informed Congress Friday it is investigating whether there is classified information in new emails that have emerged in its probe of Hillary Clinton's private server. The FBI said in July its investigation was finished. The disclosure raises the possibility of the FBI reopening the criminal investigation involving the Democratic presidential nominee just days before the election, although it is not clear if that will happen. In a letter sent to congressional leaders, FBI Director James Comey said that new emails have come to light recently that have prompted investigators to take another look at the sensitive government information that flowed through the private email sever Clinton used while serving as secretary of state. It was not clear from Comey's letter where the new emails came from or who sent or received them. WikiLeaks has published tens of thousands of confidential emails from Clinton campaign insiders that U.S. intelligence officials have said were hacked
Yahoo.com holds the key to determining just how severely Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton may have violated national-security laws with emails that Huma forwarded to herself at email@example.com, which ended up on a laptop owned by her husband, former Congressman Anthony Weiner. The FBI has the legal authority to force Yahoo to disclose whether IPs belonging to third parties, including foreign third parties, had access to read in real time – and in non-redacted form – emails that Abedin forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org that ended up on Wiener’s laptop. On Aug. 29, WND reported two-thirds of Abedin’s released emails were forwarded to personal addresses she controlled. Yahoo refuses to cooperate
In August, WND realized that anyone with Abedin’s Yahoo email account username and password could have accessed email@example.com to read in real time – and in a non-redacted form – all State Department emails, including those with classified information that Abedin forwarded to herself. As WND reported Sept. 6, several of the emails Abedin forwarded to her account at firstname.lastname@example.org were found to contain such highly sensitive material that the State Department redacted 100 percent of the content pages, marking many pages with a bold stamp reading “PAGE DENIED.” By taking it offline, Abedin could have given the user name and password to a third party, including a foreign third party, without State Department IT administrators, or the IT administrators of the Clinton’s private server, realizing it. To determine if others were accessing her email@example.com because Abedin had given them username and password access, or because the outside users had obtained username and password access via other means, including hacking, the fact and frequency of outside IP access to firstname.lastname@example.org could only be determined with certainty if Yahoo could be forced to turn over that information. On Sept. 1, the Romanian hacker Miarcel Lehel Lazar, known online as “Guccifer,” had been sentenced on Sept. 1 to 52 months in prison for hacking passwords and employing social-engineering tactics including fraud, identity theft, and harassment to successfully hack into the email accounts of celebrities, business executives, and political figures such Sidney Blumenthal, an adviser with whom Secretary Hillary Clinton corresponded using her private email account at the State Department. On July 25, 2012, WND reported that Abedin has family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, including having worked on the editorial board of a Saudi-financed Islamic think tank alongside Abdull Omar Naseef, a Muslim extremist with close ties to the Abedin family who has been accused of financing al-Qaida fronts.
It’s not just the FBI that has been forced to reveal that they’ve made new and worrisome discoveries about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. The Department of the Defense apparently sent Congress a letter on Tuesday detailing their discovery of at least 1,000 new, previously unknown Clinton emails between she and General David Petraeus. This should serve as a reminder to everyone that Hillary Clinton isn’t the only person involved in this morass that deserves to serve time in prison. There is a small circle of Clinton confidantes that all owe the American people a few years in a federal prison, including Huma Abedin.
DiGenova, appearing on The David Webb Show on SiriusXM Friday night, revealed that the laptops belonging to Mills and Samuelson had not been destroyed, the Daily Caller reported. “According to the agreement reached with the attorneys who handed over their laptops, the laptops were to be destroyed per the agreement after the testimony was given – the interviews were given – by the attorneys. The bureau and the department agreed to that,” DiGenova said. “However the laptops, contrary to published reports, were not destroyed, and the reason is the agents who are tasked with destroying them refused to do so. And by the way, the laptops are at the FBI for inspection by Congress or federal courts.” Indeed, DiGenova said the laptops have been subpoenaed by Congress.
(Big Democrat Media meets the new, real freedom of the press!) if you want to know what Hillary and her minions are up to and what this woman is really like you can’t get it from the “presstitutes” at ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, etc. Since media reports largely neglect Clinton’s lawless exposure of the nation’s secrets to our enemies via her amateur basement server as well as the Clinton Foundation pay-to-play schemes netting them millions of dollars, many voters have no clue about the damning specifics of her sellout of America. Project Veritas and WikiLeaks: Doing the Job the FBI and DOJ Won’t
(2010-Who knew back then?) Judicial Watch today released new State Department documents detailing repeated efforts to hack into the unsecure non-state.gov email system used by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in November 2010. The hacks are detailed in email exchanges between State Department IT official Brian Pagliano and Bill Clinton aide Justin Cooper. The emails show the system was hacked 10 times in two days from November 27 to 29.
Clinton forwarded the Aug. 8, 2009, email – clearly marked “Classified” – to a personal, nonsecure email address registered to aide Huma Abedin, email@example.com. Abedin then forwarded the message to another personal, nonsecure account, firstname.lastname@example.org. The exchange from Blumenthal to Clinton concerned the “disastrous nature” of an Obama trip to Germany, charging the U.S. was “totally out of the loop in Berlin – no ambassador,” resulting in the expectation that “Germans and Russians will now cut their own separate deals on energy, regional security, etc.” “This email is completely an obvious violation of national security regulations regarding the handling of classified information for which people normally go to prison,” Greg Davis, a U.S. Army veteran with more than 30 years experience as a military intelligence officer, told WND in an interview. Davis, the creator of the intelligence-oriented website SpookdBlog.com, said that typically Justice Department would grant Abedin immunity from prosecution in return for her willingness to turn state’s evidence against Clinton. “If Huma refused to cooperate, the Department of Justice could threaten to seek a maximum prison term for her should their effort to bring a criminal prosecution against her succeed,” he said. The information previously was published by the State Department, but it was unknown until now that Clinton forwarded the exchange containing classified information to Abedin’s nonsecure non-State Department account. The email was among 510 pages of documents released by Judicial Watch last week. Davis spelled out the security vulnerability that Abedin created by forwarding the classified information to her Yahoo account. “The information is still there, at the NSA, even if Yahoo.com has closed Abedin’s email account.”
Davis stressed the NSA archive of Abedin emails at Yahoo.com would include complete, non-redacted copies of emails that may have been destroyed by Clinton or by her IT assistants.
(INTENT) “Apparently somebody working IT for Hillary went to Reddit and ask[ed] Redditors if any of them knew how to do this! ‘Do you know how to strip/remove content from very VIP emails?’ This request was made on July 24, 2014,” he said Tuesday.
“You know what happened? You know what happened the day before? On July 23, 2014, a congressional committee chaired by Trey Gowdy confirmed a deal to get Hillary Clinton’s records and emails. “After that is when somebody from her IT team, it is suspected, got hold of Reddit and said, ‘Is there anybody here who can tell me how to mass, to in bulk delete, and remove content of very VIP email?'” The claims were outlined by Guy Benson at Townhall. “‘Smoking gun’ may be a slight exaggeration, but the circumstantial case here looks pretty strong. Bravo to the Internet sleuths who ferreted out this virtual paper trail, which leads back to a techie who was granted immunity by U.S. officials in the course of their criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal,” he wrote. If the House Benghazi committee demanded every email sent to or by Hillary Clinton, then one easy way to avoid producing a particular email would be to simply scrub her address from it.”
Summarized Limbaugh, “So the very day after the Gowdy committee confirms it’s going to get her records, a Hillary IT tech asks Reddit how to strip VIP email and email addresses from the archives of what she’s gonna send.” He warned the email issues is not anywhere near going away.
Obama -- who has publicly claimed ignorance about his Secretary of State's improper emails scheme -- used a pseudonym under which he swapped messages with Clinton, including one exchange about which a shocked Clinton confidante Huma Abedin gasped, "how is that not classified?" when the FBI shared it with her. Obama's team was informed when Hillary "changed her primary email," suggesting that the White House was aware of her server. In reality, Clinton and her attorneys withheld thousands of work-related emails, including these correspondences with Petraeus. Clinton didn't simply feed that line to the public. She made the same assertion to Congress under oath, and signed a statement to a federal judge attesting, under penalty of perjury, that all official emails had been surrendered:
James Comey told Congress that there was no case for criminal charges against Cheryl Mills. If that's the case, what did she need immunity for? And why would she want her laptop nuked? Perhaps it's because she improperly stored classified material on her personal computer, in violation of the law.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the FBI usually only “proffers” immunity deals in return for genuine information and requirements that the recipients cooperate with other investigating bodies, such as Congress. That said, in this specific case its unclear what the FBI received in return for their immunity deals other than what they could have otherwise taken with a subpoena. As Jim Jordan (R-OH) said, “if the FBI wanted any other Americans’ laptops, they would just go get them—they wouldn’t get an immunity deal.” But, of course, by offering immunity, the FBI exempted the laptops and their emails as potential evidence in a criminal case.
"The answer on cybersecurity is secure your own damn email, secretary of state, and he didn't do that.
One of the nation’s top legal minds, former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy, told WND the latest WIkileaks bombshell confirms his belief that Hillary Clinton wasn’t prosecuted for mishandling classified information because President Obama would have been implicated, too. Wikileaks released an email on Friday from March 4, 2015, sent by Clinton’s eventual presidential campaign manager, John Podesta, to her attorney Cheryl Mills, asking if they should decline to turn over emails between Clinton and President Obama sent over her private server. Podesta suggested invoking “executive privilege” to withhold the emails just one day after the House Benghazi Committee had told Clinton to provide all her emails. Mills did not answer Podesta’s email, but the emails between Obama and Clinton were never turned over to the Benghazi committee. Eighteen such emails were turned over the State Department, which has refused to release them. McCarthy told WND, “This confirms what I have said all along: President Obama was engaged in the same reckless conduct as then-Secretary Clinton: engaging in exchanges of highly sensitive information — information that is presumptively classified under the president’s own executive order — over a non-secure, non-government system.” He added, “That is why Huma Abedin was so stunned when she learned about it, asking as anyone with a security clearance would ask: ‘How is that not classified?’” He does not want to say ‘executive privilege’ because that sounds too much like Nixon.”
Richard Nixon had 18 missing minutes of audio. Barack Obama has 18 missing emails to Hillary Clinton on her server.
Now it turns out Hillary Clinton in 1974 argued that executive privilege could not shield a president from a Congressional subpoena. “Hillary Rodham drafted a rather authoritative legal memorandum shredding the notion that President Nixon could rightfully invoke the doctrine of executive privilege to shield himself from the subpoenas of the Watergate special prosecutors,” Donald Russo wrote in the Morning Call in 1998, recounting Hillary Clinton’s work on the Watergate scandal for the House Judiciary Committee and Special Prosecutor John Doar, arguing that executive privilege could not be used to block Congressional subpoenas. In the U.S. v. Nixon in 1974, the Supreme Court unanimously ended up agreeing with Clinton that executive privilege could not shield a President from a Congressional subpoena: “To read the Art. II powers of the President as providing an absolute privilege as against a subpoena essential to enforcement of criminal statutes on no more than a generalized claim of the public interest in confidentiality of nonmilitary and nondiplomatic discussions would upset the constitutional balance of “a workable government” and gravely impair the role of the courts under Art. III.” The court added, “the allowance of the privilege to withhold evidence that is demonstrably relevant in a criminal trial would cut deeply into the guarantee of due process of law and gravely impair the basic function of the courts… That is destruction of evidence under Congressional subpoena, which is illegal under 18 U.S. Code § 1519, entitled “Destruction, alteration, or falsification of records in Federal investigations and bankruptcy”. That statute says, “Whoever knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States or any case filed under title 11, or in relation to or contemplation of any such matter or case, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.”
The FBI recovered these new emails from those not turned over by Hillary Clinton. These emails are government documents and not personal emails, as Clinton claims in defending her decision to not turn over 30,000 emails sent or received by her as secretary of state. The emails also show she knew about the security issues of her BlackBerry use (and yet denied recalling anything about it or refused to answer questions). In the newly obtained email exchanges, Clinton also told Petraeus, “If there is ever anything you need or want me to know, pls use this personal email address” – email@example.com – when corresponding with her. Petraeus, at the time of the email from Clinton, was the Commander of the United States Central Command, overseeing U.S. military efforts in critical areas, stretching from Northeast Africa across the Middle East to Central and South Asia, and including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Egypt. The new documents were among the nearly 15,000 Clinton emails discovered by the FBI, and obtained in response to a court order in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for State Department records about Clinton’s separate email system (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00689)).
John Bentel, the former Director of Information Resource Management, invoked the Fifth 90 times after being ordered to testify under oath by a judge when his previous account was ruled inconsistent with the official “We need to clean this up – he [Obama] has emails from her – they do not say state.gov,” wrote Mills on March 7, 2015, five days after The New York Times reported that Clinton had a secret email server. Obama had said that he found out about the secret server in the papers. That’s apparently another lie in Hillary’s email saga.
Over the last week an incredible scenario has been unfolding as the generally liberal online “hacktivist” community has come together with one goal – to stop the corrupt Hillary Clinton from becoming President. With this goal in mind, the denizens of the web at #Anonymous, Reddit, and 4Chan have joined forces with their friends at WikiLeaks to unleash retribution upon the Clinton campaign.
If you are interested in reading the raw emails posted by WikiLeaks for yourself, you can find them at their Podesta email section: https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/. Some of the most disgusting, if unsurprising, revelations in the email dump is the bald collusion between Democrat Party operatives and the sold out media. Speaking of others being jailed for what Hillary has done, I must bring to your attention the recent case of Harold Martin. Mr. Martin was arrested for having classified information in his car and home. The FBI insisted that Martin broke our national security laws despite there being no proof he intended to sell the information or give it to the nation’s enemies. But this is exactly the reverse of the standard the corrupt FBI applied to Hillary. Speaking of illegal activity, the email dump also seems to show John Podesta’s efforts to commit voter fraud in Colorado. The email in question reveals Podesta himself relating the story of having met two people in Colorado who admitted to flooding the polls with ineligible voters in order to make sure Hillary beat Senator Bernie Sanders during the Democrat primary. Finally, of these emails I’ll mention here, in an email written by Hillary herself to Podesta, the Democrat candidate for president revealed that the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia are directly funding ISIS. And yet, Hillary and her pseudo charity have taken tens of millions from these very nations. There are far more damaging emails like those above, but at a hefty 2,000 emails — and those are just the first batch, apparently — are far too many and varied for me to get into all them here. You can see a growing compilation at Breitbart News if you are interested.
Even Carl Bernstein has come to the same conclusion- he says this could not have happened unless the FBI has uncovered a bombshell against Hillary. How bad is it? A reporter for The Chicago Tribune just asked her to step down for the good of the nation. How bad is it? Wikileaks promises a shocking bombshell this week that makes this scandal pale by comparison.
Remember John Gotti- the so-called ‘Teflon Don.” The government tried to nail him for years, with no success. They needed his best friend and partner in crime to turn on him to finally nail Gotti. When Sammy "the bull" Gravano testified against Gotti, it was over. Gotti went to prison for life. Well Hillary has a Sammy "the Bull" Gravano in her life. It’s Huma Abedin. Huma is her chief of staff, girl Friday and BFF. If Huma turns, it’s all over for Hillary. Like Gotti, she could spend the rest of her life in prison- because the email violations are only the tip of the iceberg. When the FBI raided Weiner's home and grabbed his computer, they got it all. I'm betting Hillary and Huma were blind-sided. Weiner is fighting for his life. What's his future? Who will ever hire him, for anything? How will he survive financially? So Weiner has no choice- he will turn against Huma and Hillary to save his own skin. He faces many years in prison for sex crimes against a minor. His only “get out of jail card” is to turn "states evidence" against Huma and Hillary. Then Huma’s only choice is to turn against Hillary. Or face decades in prison. So Hillary has only a couple of “outs” here…and she has to move fast. Or she will spend the rest of her life in prison (at worst), or fighting off investigations, trials and federal government RICO suits from now until the day she dies (at best). Hillary out #1: Go to Obama and demand a pardon, or threaten to take Obama down with her.
Since Oct. 7, WikiLeaks has released 35,000 emails hacked from Clinton campaign boss John Podesta. Now WikiLeaks, no longer a neutral player but an active anti-Clinton agency, plans to release another 15,000 emails. What if she is elected? Think of a nation suffering a bad economy and continuing chaos in the Middle East, and now also facing a criminal investigation of a president. Add to that congressional investigations and a public vision of Clinton as a Nixonian figure wandering the halls, wringing her hands. The best thing would be for Democrats to ask her to step down now.
If you take a step back from tribal politics, you'll see that Mrs. Clinton has clearly disqualified herself from ever coming near classified information again.
Tim Kaine's political formation wasn't pro-American or pro-Catholic, it was pro-Soviet. Journalistic3 and academic4 research has now shown that Liberation Theology itself was quite possibly a product of a Kremlin disinformation campaign designed to undermine the Church and bring Catholic countries into the Soviet sphere. The top-ranking Soviet Bloc defector of the Cold War, Gen. Ion Pacepa admits that he was personally involved in the operation.5 Just how hardcore were his Jesuit teachers? Well, around the time Kaine was there, Jesuits were arrested for gunrunning, and, the next year, the Honduran government banned any more American Jesuits from coming to that country because of their left-wing activism.6 They also expelled one American-born Jesuit, who also had to leave that religious community because he was too radical even for them. That priest was Father Jim Carney, and he was the one the New York Times us tells Kaine sought out across the border in Soviet-supported Nicaragua, taking a bus and then walking several miles to meet him. Why Kaine felt the need to go Nicaragua, and meet a friend of violent revolutionaries is murky. But his relationship with Carney's successor, Father Melo, continues in the open. Melo, incidentally, wants to redistribute land throughout Latin America by 2021. In Virginia he ran a moderate and ruled as a liberal.10 Today he runs as a “Pope Francis” Catholic but on abortion and marriage, Kaine opposes Francis. On the conscience rights of groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor, Kaine sided with Obama.
(more #FAKE NEWS from Big Democrap Media & Big Democrap Govt? Likely) We’re now going to move beyond the nonsensical Russian hacked the election talking point to whether President-elect Trump has been compromised due to these new allegations, which is not an absurd point to make IFconfirmed. BuzzFeed has published the 35 pages of memos, while adding that "the allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors." Now, Wikileaks says what Buzzfeed posted is not an intelligence report. Plus, more commentary from other media figures citing that most of what CNN reported can't be verified. 35 page PDF published by Buzzfeed on Trump is not an intelligence report. Style, facts & dates show no credibility.https://t.co/twa8pJMMtP — WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) January 11, 2017
Whereas Clinton’s server should not have even existed since government officials are compelled to use secure government email accounts, and did indeed contain classified information, nothing at all about the Trump memos has been corroborated.
Now the Russia theme is forming the basis for the opposition to Trump and, who knows, maybe his impeachment — after all, being labeled a foreign agent by the intelligence community probably qualifies as an impeachable offense for many members of Congress, with the added bonus that it need not be proven. If this is what passes for “intelligence” in Washington, D.C. and so many of Congress’ top brass could be so easily fooled for months on end, then perhaps now it should be clear that our leaders lack any. The Obama administration has expertly timed the release of all this information, politicizing the nation’s intelligence community in what may be its largest scandal ever, first to influence the election and now to delegitimize Trump
(Big Democrap Media & Big Military Industrial Complex) In January, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his farewell address after serving two terms as U.S. president; the five-star general chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. Their most valuable instrument is the U.S. media, much of which reflexively reveres, serves, believes, and sides with hidden intelligence officials. Demanding that evidence-free, anonymous assertions be instantly venerated as Truth — despite emanating from the very precincts designed to propagandize and lie — is an assault on journalism, democracy, and basic human rationality. It is not hard to understand why the CIA preferred Clinton over Trump. Clinton (Hillary’s Libya war) was critical of Obama for restraining the CIA’s proxy war in Syria and was eager to expand that war, while Trump denounced it. Clinton clearly wanted a harder line than Obama took against the CIA’s long-standing foes in Moscow, while Trump wanted improved relations and greater cooperation. Back in October, a political operative and former employee of the British intelligence agency MI6 was being paid by Democrats to dig up dirt on Trump (before that, he was paid by anti-Trump Republicans). It’s almost impossible to imagine a scenario where it’s justifiable for a news outlet to publish a totally anonymous, unverified, unvetted document filled with scurrilous and inflammatory allegations about which its own editor-in-chief says there “is serious reason to doubt the allegations,” on the ground that they want to leave it to the public to decide whether to believe it. Almost immediately after it was published, the farcical nature of the “dossier” manifested. Not only was its author anonymous, but he was paid by Democrats (and, before that, by Trump’s GOP adversaries) to dig up dirt on Trump. Worse, he himself cited no evidence of any kind, but instead relied on a string of other anonymous people in Russia he claims told him these things. Worse still, the document was filled with amateur errors.
Bob Woodward blasted as "garbage" an unsubstantiated dossier released by U.S. intelligence agencies that alleges deep ties between President-elect Donald Trump and Moscow. In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," the celebrated Washington Post editor said he sided with Trump in his fight with intel agencies on the salacious document. "I’ve lived in this world for 45 years where you get things and people make allegations," he added. "That is a garbage document."
(Uncovering Democrat & Clinton Corruption & Criminal Activity)
Wikileaks itself has said it was not a hack, it was a leak from an insider who had legal access to the information, which is now being corroborated by a group of intelligence veterans led by former National Security Agency official and whistleblower William Binney. Binney’s group notes that “The various ways in which usually anonymous spokespeople for U.S. intelligence agencies are equivocating – saying things like ‘our best guess’ or ‘our opinion’ or ‘our estimate’ etc. – shows that the emails alleged to have been ‘hacked’ cannot be traced across the network. Given NSA’s extensive trace capability, we conclude that DNC and HRC servers alleged to have been hacked were, in fact, not hacked. The evidence that should be there is absent; otherwise, it would surely be brought forward, since this could be done without any danger to sources and methods. Thus, we conclude that the emails were leaked by an insider – as was the case with Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning. Such an insider could be anyone in a government department or agency with access to NSA databases, or perhaps someone within the DNC.” In other words, if the link between Wikileaks and Russia could be made definitively, it would have been done by now. It hasn’t.
Though technically correct there are “17” intelligence agencies, Ms. Clinton knows that these agencies “agreeing” is a hoax.
My initial reaction to the statement was a logical and rational one. I stated Mr. Trump should have replied to her: “Why do we have 17 intelligence agencies and why can they not stop the Russians from hacking?”
the Big Five of the intelligence community. They are the CIA, DIA, National Security Agency (NSA), National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (GEOINT). We all know what the CIA does (as much as we are allowed to know). But why is there the DIA and NSA? They are both part of the Defense Department. The NSA was formed in 1952 and the DIA in 1961 and I cannot tell why it exists. In conclusion, there maybe should be three or four separate intelligence agencies: CIA, FBI, NSA and maybe the director of national intelligence. The other agencies should be folded into these. One would be independent (CIA), one part of Justice (FBI) and one part of Defense (NSA). All the confusing overlap and inefficiency will be eliminated.
“Blaming the Russians for losing the election is like blaming the hotel room for getting caught with a prostitute,” actor and comedian Rob Schneider tweeted on Sunday. He followed up the next day: “The Russians may have rigged the election by showing that the Democrats definitely rigged the election.”
conservative provocateur Andrew Breitbart once said, “Politics is downstream from culture.” If you want to change a people for the worse, you have to start by undermining their values. This happens by slowly, yet surely taking over their institutions. Control Hollywood and the music industry and you can portray duty, honor and character as old timey concepts that no longer matter. You can also paint the most successful Americans as bad guys, the military as mind-numbed robots and decent Christians as hypocrites who want to ruin everyone’s good time. More importantly, once you have actors and musicians on your side, there is practically no limit to the number of ways you can shape the culture for the worse. You can promote drug use and promiscuous sex. You can encourage men to feminize and women to be more masculine. Most importantly, you can portray your opponents who want to save what’s great about America as desperately unhip. This reinforces the messages young Americans, who care desperately about being popular, are getting from their schools. Once you control Hollywood, music and the schools, you have a direct pipeline to the brains of the young Americans who will one day run the country. The thing that ties all of this together is a corrupt media that can largely control what news the population sees and focuses on.
This president will nominate many federal judges and may nominate 1/3 or more of the Supreme Court. When it comes down to Election Day, it is a binary choice. We have Hillary who wants to have “free” college which will put the nail in the coffin for the national debt. She is going to increase the death tax, capital gains tax, supports abortion on demand, partial birth abortion, and wants to nationalize the police force and continue Obama’s violation of the Constitution. Donald Trump is not a conservative and has little difference with the Democrats when it comes trade and even supports a minimum wage increase. However, Trump has an outstanding tax proposal that is similar to Ronald Reagan’s and wants to bring back over a trillion dollars overseas to be invested in the U.S. economy. Trump is also pro-military, pro-law enforcement and against the Iran Deal. These are some of the reasons why Mark will be voting for Donald Trump in November; he is clearly a better choice than Hillary.
Six years ago, a deeply disturbing story emerged from a poor neighborhood in Philadelphia. In a horrific 261-page report, prosecutors accused abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell of delivering seven babies alive and then killing them by snipping their spinal chords with scissors, as well as allowing a woman who had survived 20 years as a refugee in Nepal to be incompetently overmedicated. She died. Documentary filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney have written a new book titled "Gosnell: The Untold Story of America's Most Prolific Serial Killer." This monster chose to kill. He is the face of the abortion doctor. His story peels back the onion on this ghastly practice. Back in 2011, the Philadelphia Inquirer published the story on Gosnell's workplace, and it was chilling. It said: "Semiconscious, moaning women sat in dirty recliners and on bloodstained blankets. The air reeked of urine from the flea-infested cats permitted to roam the clinic. There was blood on the floor and cat feces on the stairs."
I think our situation is so precarious that if we elected Clinton, we might never again have the luxury of worrying about the viability of conservatism or the Republican Party. If we lost the borders issue alone, we might never win another election. If Clinton were to appoint one or more Supreme Court justices, there's no limit to the damage the court could do to the Constitution, which is already in trouble. If we keep pretending we are not at war with terrorists and continue to degrade our military, we will be inviting further attacks at home and the triumph of evil abroad. So once Cruz lost, I concluded we have to cut our losses and try to save the nation, however imperfectly we do it. In the process, we can remain constitutional watchdogs and advocates and lobby and pressure Trump to pursue conservative policies.
You want to talk about your conscience? What are you going to do when you wake up on November the 9th and you didn’t vote or you voted for a third party who had no chance of winning and effectively gave a vote to Hillary Clinton? You wake up and she’s president-elect. The globalist agenda is in full force. Obama’s last eight years will be on steroids for another four or eight years and beyond. What are you going to say to your children and your grandchildren when the America we knew is gone? When the Constitution, First Amendment rights, Second Amendment Rights, Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights, when all of those are gone? What are you going to say about your conscience then?” TrGallups conceded Trump is hardly likely to solve all the concerns of evangelical Christians in the United States. But he believes that on issues such as the Supreme Court and religious freedom, Trump will give Christians the “breathing room” they need to rebuild the culture.
Trump Calls for Independent Prosecutor for Clinton's 'Criminality' After the FBI and Department of Justice whitewash of the Clinton email crimes, they certainly cannot be trusted to quickly or impartially investigate Hillary Clinton's new crimes, which happen all the time," Trump told a rally in Akron, Ohio. ". . . The Justice Department is required to appoint an independent special prosecutor because it has proven itself to be, really, sadly, a political arm of the White House. Nobody has ever seen anything like this before. The DOJ has acted very unethically, particularly the Attorney General's private lengthy, 39-minute meeting in the back of an airplane before the Department's decision not to prosecute her for crimes that would have been prosecuted against any other citizen in our country. "If the Justice Department fails to do so, it will make it even clearer that a second of four primary constitutional departments have been corrupted. It's as simple as that."
Under Hillary Clinton’s leadership, the State Department was run like a mob-run shakedown operation, with more than half the visitors she met with from outside government paying money to the Clinton Family Foundation for the privilege, according to an Associated Press investigation of her calendars. “It’s an extraordinary proportion indicating her possible ethics challenges if elected president,” reported the largest news-gathering organization in the world. At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, the news agency reported Tuesday. Combined the 85 “donors” contributed as much as $156 million – with 40 donating more than $100,000 and 20 giving more than $1 million, according to the stunning report. The AP report, which represents the first systematic effort to calculate the scope of the intersecting interests of the Clinton Foundation donors and people who met personally with the secretary of state or spoke on the phone, said “the frequency of the overlaps shows the intermingling of access and donations, and fuels perceptions that giving the foundation money was a price of admission for face time with Clinton. Her calendars and emails released as recently as this week describe scores of contacts she and her top aides had with foundation donors.” The 154 did not include U.S. federal employees or foreign government representatives.Clinton’s State Department stonewalled the AP investigation for three years. But, Clinton met with representatives of at least 16 foreign governments that donated as much as $170 million to the Clinton charity, but they were not included in AP’s calculations because such meetings would presumably have been part of her diplomatic duties. The Clinton Foundation’s finances are so messy that the nation’s most influential charity watchdog put it on its “watch list” of problematic nonprofits last month. Meanwhile, an investigation of the Clinton Foundation’s $140 million in grants and pledges in the year 2013 found that only $9 million went to direct aid to charities. The bulk of its revenues went to administration, travel, and salaries and bonuses, with the fattest payouts going to family and friends.
“It is a total embarrassment if our secretary of state can be bought or bribed or sold.”
For the "what difference does it make" crowd, you can no longer credibly claim that Bill Clinton half million-dollar honorarium (as reported in the New York Times) for a speech in Russia was not tied to the decision that followed shortly thereafter to allow many of the same Russian actors to gain control of 20 percent of the U.S. uranium reserves.
Meet convicted felon Claudio Osorio, the Miami man serving a 12-year prison sentence who scammed American taxpayers out of $10 million and Haiti earthquake victims out of 500 homes – all with the help of the Clintons. Osorio, 54, a pal of Bill and Hillary Clinton and President Obama, is a Clinton Foundation donor. He even hosted fundraisers for them at his waterfront home in Florida.
Then we discovered that the Clinton State Department oversaw some $6 billion in mismanagement, fraud and incompetence.
(Money talks) 40 Percent Of Hillary Clinton's Advisory Appointments At State Were To Foundation Donors
The Clinton Foundation has been under scrutiny during the presidential campaign for allegations that the Clintons have personal profited from the charity and that many prominent donors, particularly foreigners, have given millions of dollars with the expectation it would provide access to the secretary of state. Nigerian billionaire Gilbert Chagoury The Clinton Foundation donor conviction list headlines with Nigerian-Lebanese industrialist Gilbert Chagoury whose name turned up in an email exchange released by Judicial Watch in which Teneo head Doug Band pressed longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin to put Chagoury in touch with the State Department’s “substance person” on Lebanon. Chagoury is also notorious for having been denied entry into the United States last year because of suspected terrorist ties as well as for having been placed on the TSA “no-fly” list in 2010. Chagoury’s name appears near the top in the 2008 list of more than 200,000 donors to the Clinton Foundation. He contributed between $1 million and $5 million in 2008 and again in 2009. He also pledged $1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative in 2009. The Wall Street Journal reported in 2008 that Chagoury contributed to Bill Clinton’s 1996 presidential campaign and to Hillary’s 2004 presidential campaign, and paid “a lucrative speaking fee” to the former president. In 2000, according to a PBS Frontline report, Chagoury was convicted in Geneva, Switzerland, of laundering money and aiding a criminal organization with the billions stolen from Nigeria during the rule of the late dictator Sani Abachi. Chagoury’s criminal record was expunged after he paid a fine.
The Clinton Foundation should be shut down, it’s a criminal enterprise. It doesn’t matter if they do some good works, because even dictatorships and the mob sometimes do good things.
NEW YORK – The arrest of the head of global foreign exchange cash trading at HSBC bank may shed new light on suspicions the Clinton Foundation has been involved in illegal offshore money-laundering operations on a massive scale. After the HSBC currency traders were arrested, WND conducted an investigation of the bank’s connections to the Clinton Foundation, uncovering a massive offshore financial network involving tens of thousands of transactions that extend far beyond HSBC. The transactions surfaced in database searches of leaked offshore banking documents. On Feb. 10, 2015, the London Guardian reported $81 million from seven wealthy international donors flowed to the Clinton Foundation through controversial Swiss tax-free HSBC accounts maintained in Geneva, as revealed by leaked HSBC files obtained by French newspaper Le Monde. Breitbart reported in April that key Clinton financial partners, including Canadian mining executive Frank Giustra and the Chagoury family of Nigeria, made use of the controversial Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca to move assets around the world. Breitbart noted Giustra is one of the Clinton Foundation’s largest contributors, donating more than $25 million, while the Chagoury family in Nigeria has committed $1 billion to the Clinton Global Initiative. This led WND to begin an extensive investigation into the major leak of offshore banking documents, known as the “Panama Papers,” a giant leak of more than 11.5 million financial and legal records from the files of the Mossack Fonseca law firm that was archived by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. The Panama Papers database contains information on some 214,000 offshore entities connected to people in more than 200 countries and territories. It reveals major financial institutions, including HSBC, involved in the creation of hard-to-trace companies in offshore havens that form a complex international network involved in tax evasion and money-laundering schemes.
The Associated Press in August 2015 broke the story that Bill Clinton had created and used a shell corporation, WJC LLC, and a shell bank account to hide an undisclosed amount of money from public reporting and accountability. WJC LLC is the type of company that gun-running and drug-dealing criminals involved in international money-laundering create and operate to avoid law-enforcement detection.
The alleged Russian money-laundering involving both Podesta and the Clinton Foundation appears to have occurred around two key decisions Secretary of State Clinton made in favor of Russia: The transfer of advanced U.S. technology to Russia, including both military technology and solar energy technology as part of Secretary Clinton’s “reset” program with Russia, in a move that greatly enhanced the Russian military’s capabilities, according to both the FBI and the U.S. army; and Secretary Clinton’s decision on the Committee for Foreign Investment in the United States, CFIUS, to approve the Russian government energy agency Rosatum buying majority control of Uranium One, a company Bill Clinton promoted along with Clinton Foundation donor Frank Giustra in Canada, that resulted in the transfer of approximately 20 percent of all U.S. uranium production to Uranium One.
(Intent, Intent and more Intent) The FBI knew that Clinton's aides destroyed old Blackberrys by cracking them in half or hitting them with a hammer. The FBI knew full well that Clinton had passed classified information over her private server -- she admitted that she didn't even know how classified information worked, instead stating that she thought the "C" appearing at the top of documents probably had something to do with alphabetizing files. The FBI recognized that Clinton wiped her server after a New York Times article revealed her private sever and email use; that she brought her Blackberry into a secure State Department area; that she never turned over nearly 18,000 work-related emails; that she discussed an undercover asset on the server and put his family in danger; and that she refused to take Blackberrys from the State Department out of fear they could be discoverable under Freedom of Information Act requests. That's not all. The FBI also allowed Clinton aide Cheryl Mills to act as Clinton's lawyer during her FBI hearing, even though Mills was a material witness.
We the undersigned who have served in prior Democratic administrations will not vote for Hillary Clinton. "She has endangered U.S. national security by using an unsecured and unlawful personal email server. She has transmitted classified information over it, some of which was most likely accessed by foreign interests. "Hillary Clinton deliberately undermined government intelligence-handling protocols and ignored Freedom of Information requests. "FBI Director James Comey, after a lengthy investigation, has stated before Congress that Ms. Clinton was untruthful in her various public explanations about her reckless behavior. "We are discovering from her unsecured and once-deleted correspondence more evidence of negligence and unethical behavior -- from crossover business between State Department operatives and the Clinton Foundation to quid-pro-quo favors and discussions about a U.S. informant who was later executed by the Iranian government. "Unfortunately, Ms. Clinton cannot distinguish truth from falsehood in areas that transcend the email scandal. She went on record falsely attesting that the Benghazi tragedy was a result of popular anger against a filmmaker. In previous communications, she had asserted just the opposite -- that it was a terrorist operation. "After ranking members of the Democratic National Committee were found to have been massaging the primary race for Ms. Clinton, she nonetheless hired for her campaign the recently resigned and disgraced former head of the DNC, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. "Clinton's role in the decision to bomb Libya ensured a subsequent failed state and terrorist haven there. Her laxity left the consulate in Benghazi without protection from terrorist violence that led to American deaths. "Backing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt nearly destroyed a traditional ally. The Iranian government has stepped up its support of terrorism, its hostage-taking and its promises to destroy Israel -- after the Iran accord Clinton claims to have helped initiate.
(Need to make like WIC, random drug testing, work/volunteer requirements & any rioting-looting-arson no welfare for life ASAP) At least 25 states already prohibit welfare recipients from using Electronic Benefit Transfer cards to pay for alcohol, tobacco, gambling, lottery tickets, guns, or adult venues. But heading into 2017, states such as Maine and Arkansas are looking to go further. The Maine Department of Health and Human Services plans to submit a waiver request to the U.S. Department of Agriculture as soon as Donald Trump is sworn in as president Jan. 20. If approved, it would allow the state to prohibit food stamp recipients from using their benefits to buy sugary items such as candy and soda.
After a while, the imam [Khomeini] replaced the call of ‘war, war to victory’ with ‘war, war until the fitna is removed.’ At the time, we understood this call as meaning that ‘we must be so strong that the enemy will not even think of a military strike against Iran,'” he said. “In accordance with his secondary plan, the Imam [Khomeini] created Hizbullah in Lebanon. This plan was [aimed at] Islamizing other countries. Today, in the era of the Leader [Khamenei, Hizbullah] has become a supreme force in the region. What he wanted was a smoke screen behind which he could help the Iranian theocracy negotiate its way out of a severe political and economic crisis in exchange for endorsing Obama’s claim that he had prevented ‘yet another war’ in the Middle East. He wanted a photo op with another long-time enemy of the U.S., another Nobel Prize – or at least justification for the one he already has,” said Taheri, chairman of the Gatestone Institute. “He failed on all fronts.” Taheri quoted Ali-Akbar Saleh, the chief of the Iran Atomic Energy Agency, who said Iran’s nuclear program “remains intact.” Added Taheri, “To hammer in the point further, Iran recently tested a new generation of missiles which, because of their long range and small payload, only make sense if they carry nuclear warheads. “In exchange for vague promises, Obama has solved the Islamic Republic’s cash-flow problem by releasing unknown quantities of frozen assets. He said Obama’s delivery of $1.7 billion in assets “frozen under President Jimmy Carter” probably went “straight into the budget of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard to help it upgrade its adventures.”
When Barack Obama left his first “job” as a community organizer in Chicago to pursue politics, he left the African American community he promised to help, having done “nothing that would change poverty on the South Side of Chicago.” And that’s according to an interview given to the New York Times by Obama’s friend and mentor Jerry Kellman who helped him land the community organizer position. Saul Alinsky’s socialist and self-serving philosophies help folks like Hillary and Barack rise to political power—but do little to help those in need. TRUMP Truth Trump is correct. I’ve fact-checked his statements for you here, detailing how Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s policies have and will continue to harm women, African Americans, and the poor. Single motherhood, absentee fatherhood and unemployment are at historic highs among these demographics, yet Hillary promises to continue Obama’s tried-and-failed plan to spend instead of mend. Hillary isn’t welcoming female, black and poor Americans to follow her leadership to attain better jobs. Or to live in safer, more peaceful neighborhoods. Instead, she is inviting them to give up. Don’t help Hillary turn the United States into her plantation.
Not once under the Status of Forces Agreement were U.S. soldiers brought into Iraqi courts for the prosecution of any crime that occurred in combat situations. Primarily, because U.S. service members were only subject to Iraqi law when off-base and off-duty, not during combat situations, per Article 12 of the 2008 Status of Forces Agreement: “Iraq has the primary right to exercise jurisdiction over members of the U.S. forces and members of the civilian element regarding major and premeditated crimes, according to item 8, when these crimes are committed outside installations and areas agreed upon and off duty.”
All Clinton had to do was extend the existing agreement, and the U.S. military would have continued to be automatically shielded from any prosecutions arising out of combat operations. The supposedly objectionable provisions in the Iraqi status of forces agreement are among the same types for U.S. service personnel stationed all over the world, in places like South Korea, Japan, and Germany. That is, off-duty, off-base servicemen and women are subject to local jurisdiction in allied countries when crimes are committed. It’s standard practice. For example, just in 2013, two U.S. servicemen were convicted and imprisoned in Japan for the rape of a Japanese woman. The sentences were 10 years and 9 years in prison, respectively. Yet, the Obama administration never withdrew military forces from Japan or closed the naval bases including at Okinawa over the convictions. Because that would have been silly. To be clear, the foreign prosecution of U.S. service members for crimes committed off-base, off-duty has nothing to do with local interference with combat operations as Clinton and Obama contended. That was a lie. A big lie. What was unusual was Clinton and Obama’s refusal to negotiate and finalize a Status of Forces Agreement — and then lying about it why it failed. Clinton and Obama’s failure created a power vacuum in Iraq, leading directly to the rise of Islamic State, a war that has now cost the lives of tens of thousands of civilians in its wake — and has spread to Europe and the U.S. with Islamic State-inspired killings. Agree or disagree with the decision to go to Iraq — Clinton voted for it — the U.S. had a responsibility not to pull forces out prematurely, destabilizing the entire region. A deterrent force could have remained in Iraq, like a garrison, that could have taken out Islamic State before it ever got its foothold. Hillary Clinton has blood on her hands in Iraq. She helped pull troops out of Iraq, and then lied about why we left after the fact when Islamic State took over
One of America’s busiest cargo shipping ports has been quietly turned over to a United Arab Emirates-based company whose chairman is none other than the brother of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s top nuclear scientist. Remember the 2006 Dubai ports deal? There was a major controversy in the U.S. when six major U.S. seaports were sold to a UAE company, raising national security concerns about port security. But nary a peep has been raised by a similar deal, secretly negotiated by the Obama administration, that turned over a Port Canaveral terminal to UAE-based Gulftainer, a company whose principals include Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, who has been called the Middle East’s foremost uranium enrichment and nuclear weapons production expert, and his brother Hamid Jafar, a wealthy Iraqi oilman and chairman of the Crescent Group.
'Clinton death list': 33 most intriguing (dead people don’t talk): 'friends' fall off buildings, crash planes, die in freak accidents
Achmed the Dead Terrorist – famous for his catchphrase, “Silence! I kill you!” – is revealing why famous ventriloquist and comedian Jeff Dunham and his puppet crew never mock Hillary Clinton. It’s apparently because the consequences of crossing Clinton can be, well, deadly. That’s according to a new video posted by Dunham that has generated more than 2.1 million views.
The authors argue “that Bill Clinton’s first alleged rape was of a 19-year-old coed named Eileen Wellstone. We believe that he was not prosecuted because the State Department did not want a Rhodes Scholar charged with rape.”
Clinton allegedly sexually assaulted her after they met at a bar near Oxford. He claimed they had consensual sex and Wellstone chose not to pursue the case. A report was filed by a State Department official, which the authors point out, “was ignored by superiors.”
the UK-based Channel 4 News has a video showing a history of flip-flops from Hillary Clinton that’s quite entertaining. This video is a worthy sequel to the epic 13-minute video showing Clinton’s biggest lies. Both videos relay one message: Clinton is untrustworthy.
When Barack Obama leaves office in January 2017, he can look in the mirror and proudly tell himself that it was he who amassed more federal debt than the 43 men who stood before him, combined. Just after calling Americans lazy and racist, it is he who holds the honor of plunging the United States into to it's worst debt crisis ever. As of Monday, October 3rd, Obama has officially signed enough lucrative business deals, foreign ransom payments, and government healthcare extensions to create a $19,573,444,713,936.79 federal debt. That is exactly $9,000,000,000,000 more than when he took office in 2009.
The 9/11 Commission recommended the Department of Homeland Security complete an entry and exit system “as soon as possible,” viewing it as an important national security tool because two of the hijackers on Sept. 11, 2001, had overstayed their visas. Plagued by financial and logistical challenges, the government has introduced various pilot projects at some airports and land borders, but is still a few years off from implementing a biometric exit system on a large scale.
In 2005 President Bush was rebuked by Democrats for his handling of Hurricane Katrina. Obama scored some cheap political points -- blasting President Bush for his flyover of the devastation in New Orleans. President Bush paid a visit. That's a lot more than what Obama has done for the people of Baton Rouge and other parts of southeastern Louisiana. Some 40,000 homes are under water - a countless number left homeless - many without flood insurance. The good, hard-working people of Louisiana are suffering and they need to hear from their president. They area resilient people and self-sufficient. But the magnitude of this terrible disaster demands a national response. The Baton Rouge Advocate wrote a scathing editorial -- all but shaming him into interrupting his vacation and do his job. Louisiana needs a Comforter-in-Chief -- someone who can mobilize national attention on the plight of suffering people. If he can find time to raise money for Hillary Clinton on vacation - he can sure as heck make time for flood victims in the Deep South. But (Golfer in Chief Owebenedict) would rather be at exclusive golf courses in posh resort towns.
The group of Haitians demonstrating on the sidewalk at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia were furious with Bill and Hillary Clinton. A passionate Haitian-American named Joseph Mathieu frankly accused the couple of “destroying Haiti for the decades. They pretend to be our friends when in reality they are our number one enemies…the Clintons were running Haiti, stealing our money, our resources and we are out here, outraged for the crimes of the Clintons!” Then Mathieu labeled the international power couple racists: “The Clintons don’t like black people,” he thundered. “All they do is more welfare, more jails, more food stamps–-we don’t need that, we need more opportunity, more education!” They have good reason to wave their “Hillary! Where Is the MONEY?” signs. Following the horrific 2010 earthquake that devastated the island nation, killing over 200,000 and leaving over 1.5 million people homeless, some 9 billion dollars in pledges and aid flowed in from sympathetic individuals, nations, and charities for the rebuilding. The Clintons together became the royal arbiters in charge of just how and where this vast treasury would be spent. Dubbed “The King and Queen of Haiti” in a Politico piece, like medieval rulers of yore, their majesties doled out favors to their loyal courtiers and nobles. One of the top priorities when you’ve got over 1.5 million homeless people should be housing. Among the most deplorable Bill-orchestrated failures is his promise even before the earthquake that his friend Claudio Osorio, CEO of a company called InnoVida, planned to build “10,000 houses in Haiti at $5,000 apiece for impoverished Haitians,” according to an NPR report. Never happened. We can learn much from the Clinton’s Haiti fiasco , only a sliver of which I have covered here. When they say they will bring jobs and prosperity because they care so much about us -- that’s exactly what they told the Haitians. When Hillary brags about her managerial skills, her experience as a leader, and her competence at improving peoples’ lives, think of how those leadership and decision-making skills improved the lives of Haitians, most of whom are still living in makeshift plastic tents, jobless.
Clinton said: "I made my mistake using a private email. ... And if I had to do it over again, I would obviously do it differently. But I'm not going to make any excuses. It was a mistake, and I take responsibility for that." Trump said: "That was more than a mistake. That was done purposely. When you have your staff taking the Fifth Amendment ... so they're not prosecuted, when you have the man that set up the illegal server taking the Fifth, I think it's disgraceful. And believe me, this country thinks it ... is disgraceful also." Trump, in his simple way, uttered a truth that I can't recall any Republican has uttered: "Look, the African-American community has been let down by our politicians. They talk good around election time, like right now, and after the election they said, 'See you later. I'll see you in four years.'" On ISIS and Iraq, Trump correctly said: "President Obama and Secretary Clinton created a vacuum the way they got out of Iraq ... They shouldn't have been in, but once they got in, the way they got out was a disaster."
According to the Wall Street Journal, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime member of team Clinton, helped steer a total of $675,288 to the state senate campaign off Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, the senior FBI official who would become part of the team that would lead the probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system. McAuliffe’s PAC gave $467,500 to the state Senate campaign of the wife of Andrew McCabe, who is now deputy director of the FBI, according to the Wall Street Journal and an additional $207,788 came from the Virginia Democratic Party which is controlled by its governor, McAuliffe. The money directed by McAuliffe began flowing two months after the FBI investigation into Clinton began in July 2015. Around that time, the candidate’s husband was promoted from running the Washington field office for the FBI to the No. 3 position at the FBI. Within a year, McCabe was promoted to deputy director, the second-highest position in the bureau.
In a statement to The Journal, the FBI said McCabe “played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising or support of any kind. Months after the completion of her campaign, then-Associate Deputy Director McCabe was promoted to Deputy, where, in that position, he assumed for the first time, an oversight role in the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails.” The money directed by McAuliffe represented about 1/3 of Ms. McCabe campaign funds for the 2015 election which she lost…
Clinton’s ties to Common Good VA go beyond her relationship with McAuliffe, the Daily Mail noted. In June 2015, she headlined a key fundraiser for the group, which reportedly brought in over $1 million for the PAC and the Democratic Party of Virginia.
Former federal prison inmate and election rigging guru Robert Creamer now confirms that Hillary Clinton was personally involved in Democrat discussions that would be used to rig elections. According to Project Veritas, “Part III of the undercover investigation dives further into the back room dealings of Democratic politics. It exposes prohibited communications between Hillary Clinton’s campaign, the DNC and the non-profit organization Americans United for Change.
The research, published in Nature Neuroscience, provides the first empirical evidence that self-serving lies gradually escalate and reveals how this happens in our brains. The team scanned volunteers’ brains while they took part in tasks where they could lie for personal gain. They found that the amygdala, a part of the brain associated with emotion, was most active when people first lied for personal gain. The amygdala’s response to lying declined with every lie while the magnitude of the lies escalated. Crucially, the researchers found that larger drops in amygdala activity predicted bigger lies in future.
Another Democratic presidential election loser, current Secretary of State John Kerry, reportedly claimed he was robbed by voter fraud in 2004. And, the Federalist documented eight times liberals claimed an election was stolen or rigged. Despite Gore refusing to accept the results for weeks after the election, no evidence of actual fraud was ever uncovered in the Florida vote in 2000. However, the real potential for fraud by Democrats in the 2016 election has already come to light. An email revealed by WikiLeaks on Wednesday, sent by Clinton campaign manager Podesta on Feb. 3, 2015, indicated he is not troubled by voter fraud. As the Gateway Pundit noted in reporting the story, “12 states and the District of Columbia allow driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants,” and, “Almost half of California’s driver’s licenses went to illegal aliens last year.” Earlier this week, journalist James O’Keefe released undercover video exposing dirty tricks by Democrats. Bachmann told WND, “One democratic operative whom O’Keefe filmed on camera violating campaign law visited the White House, according to White House records, over 340 times! Whom did this criminal visit while at the White House? ” Actually, White House records show it was 342 visits since 2009, and, even more significantly, they show he met with President Obama an eye-popping 47 times. That political operative was Robert Creamer, a middle man between the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Creamer resigned after O’Keefe made public video that caught him on camera bragging that he, and other staffers, sent activists to disrupt Trump rallies. “Mainstream media, including sadly Fox News are slanting coverage to favor Hillary Clinton.”
Although political appointees are allowed to make the transition to career federal jobs, under the law they are supposed to go through the same merit-based selection process as other applicants. Unlike political appointees, federal workers in the civil service system are hired through a merit system, are difficult to fire, and carry over in changes of administrations, Republican or Democrat.
A 2002 law by Congress already requires states to keep digital voter lists and to remove ineligible names from their systems, including the dead and those now out of state. But obviously it’s not getting done. The Public Interest Legal Foundation has discovered more than 1,000 ineligible non-citizens on voter rolls in just eight Virginia counties. And the only reason they found out about them was because those non-citizens requested removal. There were no records of the state proactively removing non-citizens, meaning the number of non-citizens on the rolls in Virginia could be much higher. The Federal Election Commission and states are not required by law to verify citizenship, even though it is illegal for non-citizens to vote or register to vote. Making matters worse, in the aforementioned 2002 law, non-citizens are not mentioned as one of the classes of people that should be removed from voter rolls by states — even though they absolutely should be. The dead, felons, and out-of-state persons are mentioned, but not non-citizens. So what can be done? For starters, Donald Trump could sue to have them removed. Or the Republican National Committee. Or state Republican committees.
Although the RNC apparently entered into a consent decree in 1981 not to pursue efforts to purge voter rolls of ineligible voters, the decree appears limited to targeting specific districts. Nothing from the decree would bar the GOP from targeting all 50 states' voter rolls. That said, Republican leaders may still be reluctant to take up such a case. In that instance, aggrieved registered voters themselves might wish to take up the case, if they were so inclined. Conservative groups like Judicial Watch and True the Vote have sued individual states in the past to rid their voter lists of the dead and out-of-state persons. Standing was not an issue in those cases.
Click here to urge Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee to immediately sue to compel states to remove non-citizens, dead people and multi-state registrations from the voter rolls!
(Economy/JOBS) Several sources report that 600 major regulations have been implemented under Obama, costing businesses $743 billion. Think about how many jobs that would pay for, even if it were cut in half. (Hillary & Democraps love regulations, taxes, spending & borrowing. Who spends money better, the employers & employees OR big, greedy, corrupt gov’t?)
(EPA must be defunded and sent down to the States) EPA published the final CPP rule in the Federal Register on October 2015. More than two dozen states and a variety of industry groups and businesses immediately filed challenges against it — with a final bipartisan coalition of more than 150 entities including 27 states, 24 trade associations, 37 electric coops, 3 labor unions, and about a half dozen nonprofits. On January 21, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia denied a request for a stay that would have prevented implementation of the rule until the court challenges were resolved. On February 9, the Supreme Court of the U.S. (SCOTUS), in an unprecedented action, before the case was heard by the lower court, overruled, and issued a stay that delays enforcement of CPP. One of the issues addressed was whether or not the EPA could “exercise major transformative power without a clear statement from Congress on the issue” — with the 2014 Utility Air Regulatory Group (UARG) v. EPA determining it could not. Republican appointee Judge Brett Kavanaugh noted that the UARG scenario “sounds exactly like this one.” Judge Thomas Griffith, a Bush appointee, questioned: “Why isn’t this debate going on in the floor of the Senate?” In a post-oral argument press conference, Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.) pointed out that the debate has been held on the Senate floor in the form of cap-and-trade legislation — which has failed repeatedly over a 15-year period. Therefore, he said, the Obama administration has tried to do through regulation what the Senate wouldn’t do through legislation. “Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe, one of Obama’s mentors,” writes the Dallas Morning News: “made a star appearance to argue that the Clean Power Plan is unconstitutional.” Hillary Clinton has promised to continue Obama’s climate change policies while Donald Trump has announced he’ll rescind the CPP and cancel the Paris Climate Agreement. The CPP is about more than the higher electricity costs and decreased grid reliability, which results from heavy reliance on wind and solar energy as CPP requires, and, as the South Australian experiment proves, doesn’t work. It has far-reaching impacts.
It is not asking too much that whatever the Senate and House comes up with, minimally, does what H.R. 3762 accomplished last year. Those were the principles set forward in a letter to Senate Republican leaders by Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), writing, “it is our belief that the 2017 budget resolution must include reconciliation instructions that enable Congress to quickly consider legislation that repeals at least as much of Obamacare as H.R.3762, which President Obama vetoed in December 2015.
In 2001, Kerry's state of Massachusetts lowered its income tax rate. If, however, the guilty Bay State liberals wanted to pay the higher rate -- so as not to deprive schools, hospitals and all -- they could check a box and do so. Out of over 3 million tax filers, only a fraction of 1 percent (930 taxpayers) voluntarily agreed to pay the old, higher rate. Not among that fraction of 1 percent was then-Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., who once said, "There are a lot of very rich people out there whom we can tax." When asked about the apparent contradiction, Frank said, "I don't trust the (Republican-led state) government to spend the money properly." The late Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., cast many votes opposing decreases in the estate tax. But his father, Joe Kennedy, placed his family's fortune in trusts to avoid paying the very estate tax that his son later advocated during his Senate career. Sharpton, according to The New York Times in 2014, owes "more than $4.5 million in current state and federal tax." Warren Buffett, who claimed he paid a lower tax rate then did his secretary, disputed what the IRS claimed one of his companies owed. Given that Buffett famously wants income taxes raised, why doesn't he simply accede to the IRS' request, pay the money voluntarily and increase the federal treasury? By the way, while we're at it, has anybody seen Buffett's returns and those of his secretary to confirm his assertion that he pays a lower tax rate than she does?
In 2014, Clinton told a Canadian public-relations firm, tinePublic, that Russian oligarchs were behind the funding of the anti-fracking campaign in the U.S. – even to the point of creating phony environmental groups who supposedly opposed the extraction of oil from shale because its impact on “climate change.” Clinton told the company: “We were up against Russia pushing oligarchs and others to buy media. We were even up against phony environmental groups, and I’m a big environmentalist, but these were funded by the Russians to stand against any effort, oh that pipeline, that fracking, that whatever will be a problem for you, and a lot of the money supporting that message was coming from Russia.” That’s quite a revelation, indeed. She portrays a picture of old-fashioned disinformation right out of the old KGB playbook. But wait a minute! Hasn’t Hillary Clinton told Americans “climate change” represents one of the greatest threats to global stability and the survival of the human race? Hasn’t she opposed “fracking” for years? Clinton told the Wall Street insiders: “It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But if everybody’s watching, you know, all of the backroom discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.” “It’s exactly what we knew was going on,” exclaimed Limbaugh. “While she publicly reams ’em and rips ’em to shreds, she winks at ’em. ‘Don’t worry! I have to do this. Then the question becomes: Who is she really lying to – Goldman Sachs, Democrat activists, or everybody? Bernie Sanders, throughout the primary campaign, warned Americans that Clinton was telling Wall Street fat cats what they wanted to hear while getting paid millions of dollars. No wonder she refused to release transcripts of those speeches. Now WikiLeaks has begun to do just that. This could hurt Clinton immensely with her base – but only if Democratic voters get wind of it. And, to date, ABC, CBS, NBC and the Big Media remain more fixated on what Donald Trump said to Billy Bush 11 years ago on a hot mic. Here’s another bombshell from WikiLeaks. In Sunday night’s debate, Clinton hung her national security hat on her ability to protect secrets about the takedown of Osama bin Laden. Yet portions of a speech she gave to a Toronto business group show she offered details that may have indeed been classified and certainly had never been made public before.
In a talk to a Brazilian bank in 2013, Clinton said her “dream” is “a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders,” and she asked her audience to think of what doubling American trade with Latin America “would mean for everybody in this room.”
Former CIA Director R. James Woolsey, who was appointed and served under President Bill Clinton, came out this week and announced that he would joining the Trump campaign and advising Mr. Trump on foreign policy. Woolsey said that he could not support Clinton because of her unwillingness to sacrifice her own self-interests and to safeguard our secrets.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has made it clear he doesn't want Hillary Clinton's opinion on the Milwaukee riots. Walker rejected (KiLIARy & Owebummer’s community agitation, war on cops & war on rule of law) kind of rhetoric. "The people who live in the neighborhood want police -- they want the police in Milwaukee and the sheriff's department to step up and protect them. They didn't want the criminals who were doing those actions against those businesses to do that. And I think statements like that and the lack of leadership we have had from the president on this issue only inflame the situation." Walker has declared a state of emergency as the situation continues to escalate.
divisive sermonizing and the issuing of executive orders are not the same as successfully reforming our health care system. The Affordable Care Act, born of exaggeration and untruth, is now in peril as insurers pull out and the costs of premiums and deductibles soar. Even presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is not really defending the Obama administration's past "red line" in Syria, the "reset" with Vladimir Putin's Russia, the bombing of Libya, the Benghazi tragedy, the euphemistic rebranding of Islamic terrorism as mere "violent extremism," the abrupt pullout from (and subsequent collapse of) Iraq, or the Iran nuclear deal that so far seems to have made the theocracy both rich and emboldened. The U.S. economy -- with its record-low growth over eight years, near-record labor non-participation rates, record national debt and record consecutive years of zero interest rates -- is not much of a legacy either. Racial relations in this country seem as bad as they have been in a half-century.
VP candidate Kaine’s first political mentors were Marxist revolutionaries. Since then, he has become allied with Islamic extremists. Clinton’s running mate is the only member of Congress to get a zero percent lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union. He also gets zero percent from Conservative Review. By contrast, Planned Parenthood gave Kaine a 100 percent scorecard.
“If we’re going to err, why do we not err on the side of caution?” Haney asked. “Meaning if you had children, for example, and they’re playing in your front yard, and there’s only a 1 percent chance they could run out into the street, is that an acceptable risk? Because that means there’s almost four days a year when your kids are going to run out into the street. Is that a risk any parent would take?” “Why are we not erring on the side of preservation of security and safety of American citizens, but rather on the side of individuals who are not U.S. citizens?” Haney pointed to another troubling piece of information: the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) reported last month that at least 31,000 individuals from “special interest countries,” meaning countries of concern regarding terrorism, crossed our southern border in 2015. “So now you have another stream of threat that will naturally gravitate to the communities that are being established around the country, in many cases against the will of the people living in those communities,” Haney said. The Allow State Sovereignty Upon Refugee Entry (ASSURE) Act would require the Office of Refugee Resettlement, part of the Department of Health and Human Services, to submit a detailed plan to each state where it wants to resettle refugees. The plan must list expected costs of housing, education, health care and any other subsidies that the state will incur. The ORR also must disclose the health records, vaccination records, criminal history and potential terrorist ties of the refugees to be resettled. The plan would have to be ratified by the state legislature and signed by the governor in order for refugee resettlement to move forward.
But if he breaks a major campaign promise, his supporters will turn on him with a blind ferocity, dwarfing their rage toward Jeb! because Trump's is the more exquisite con. He will have duped them. And he will never, ever, ever get them back.
Most of his promises can be kept with little trouble: He will appoint good judges, cut regulations, replace Obamacare and renegotiate trade deals. In other words, he'll do all the things any Republican president would do -- plus the trade deals.
But the moment Trump attempts to make good on his central promise -- to remove troublesome immigrants and give us our country back -- every major institution in America will declare war on him. It will surprise consumers of American media to learn this, but every promise Trump made on immigration is already the law. Why? Because politicians know that's what the public wants. So they pass the laws -- and then refuse to enforce them. There will be more Americans like Kate Steinle, Grant Ronnebeck and Joshua Wilkerson killed by illegal aliens. There will be more children addicted to heroin brought in by Mexican drug cartels. There will be more parents joining the Remembrance Project.
Republican Electoral College members across the U.S. report harassment and threats from disgruntled Clinton supporters in a last-ditch effort to put their candidate who should be in the big house in the White House. These despotic dimwits don’t give a whit that America’s founders created the Electoral College to prevent the kind of mob rule democracy that Alexis de Tocqueville once called “the tyranny of the majority” – which will happen if a few big cities and states always control the outcome. Given all the talk about ditching the Electoral College, fair representation is the last thing on the minds of those who didn’t mind it at all when polls predicted a Hillary electoral landslide. Truth is, if they really cared about fairness, they’d ditch the Super Delegates system which was rigged for Hillary when it robbed Bernie Sanders early on. Protest, petition and recount all they wish, but eliminating the Electoral College won’t happen. There isn’t a rural state out there foolish enough to relinquish the power the nation’s founders gave it. Besides, it would take nothing short of a miracle for the Senate and states to ratify. In 2012, research commissioned by the Pew Center on the States found: “Approximately 24 million—one of every eight—voter registrations in the United States are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate; More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters; Approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.” It’s entirely possible that Clinton’s popular vote lead in sanctuary city states would be nullified based on non-citizen participation and voter fraud, given the study found that non-citizen votes alone ranged between 38,000 to 2.8 million in 2008.
That’s why we need the Electoral College, which serves to prevent voting fraud in certain areas from tainting a whole election. Without it, we’d see liberty’s demise and mob rule rise. If Democrats really want a different form of government, many Americans like myself are more than willing to subsidize their one-way airfare (renounce citizenship too).
We are a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy, and the vote which confirms our next president is the Electoral College, not the nationwide popular vote. College cry-bullies tried everything, too. Temper tantrums work on indulgent parents and frazzled professors, but not on elected officials and party leaders who want what’s best for the country. The Framers of the Constitution outlined an excellent indirect election process for selecting the next commander in chief. They disdained democracy (rule by the mob majority (whether union thugs or underground criminals, if anyone can tell the difference). Do we really want the dysfunctional Confederate Regenerate state of California determining our next president? Hillary Clinton has lost so many times, now, one would think that she would get tired of it. But on this Electoral College Day, she flunked even more than expected. In Colorado, one DEMOCRATIC elector announced his refusal to vote for Crooked Hillary. Another Democratic elector in the state of Maine announced his decision to honor the primary contest, which awarded the delegation to Bernie Sanders. In Minnesota, too, an electoral declared “Hill No!” Those states, however, have clear guidelines on the submission of electoral votes. If the candidate wins the state popular vote, then the slate of electors must reward that candidate. But federalism is a two-edged sword. Washington State permits “faithless” electoral votes to count, even if the voter faces a fine. Of Washington State’s twelve, only eight voted for Clinton. Three voted for Colin Powell (a left-wing Republican, and “compromise candidate,” I suppose). One more went to Faith Spotted Eagle, a Dakota Tribe leader. OUCH! After all that hemming, hawing, and pleading from the progressive left to bait Republican electors to abandon Trump, more Democratic electors ditched the Witch of Wall Street, corruption and all.
from a November 8, 2016 article in the New York Times quoting the National Archives: "Electors generally hold a leadership position in their party or were chosen to recognize years of loyal service to the party. Throughout our history as a nation, more than 99 percent of electors have voted as pledged." Presidential Electors are the same types of people - maybe the exact same people - who are chosen by state parties to go to the Republican and Democratic National Conventions every four years.
In the end, more Clinton electors bolted from her than Republican ones abandoning Trump (via The Hill): Four Democratic electors in Washington state cast votes for candidates other than Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who carried the state.
Democratic electors in Maine, Minnesota and Colorado have separately tried to cast votes for different candidates, but saw their ballots barred. Clinton carried all three states. To make matters even more sad, Hollywood liberals, the people whose unbridled snobbery and elitism contributed to Clinton’s defeat, cut a video pleading with Republican electors to vote their conscience and block Trump.
Virginia seems to be on the road to becoming the latest state to attempt to switch the manner in which it allocates Electoral Votes in Presidential Elections from “winner take all” to one in which the votes are allocated based on which candidate wins each of the state’s eleven Congressional District: A Republican-backed bill that would end Virginia’s winner-takes-all method of apportioning its 13 electoral votes in presidential elections cleared its first legislative hurdle Wednesday.
A Senate Privileges and Elections subcommittee recommended Sen. Bill Carrico’s bill on a 3-3 party line vote Wednesday, advancing it to consideration by the GOP-dominated full committee next week. Republicans control the Senate and House in Virginia, and Gov. Bob McDonnell is a Republican. The bill would apportion electors by congressional district to the candidate who wins each of the state’s 11 districts. The candidate who carries a majority of the districts would also win the two electors not tied to congressional districts. Sen. Charles W. “Bill” Carrico, R-Grayson, said the change is necessary because Virginia’s populous, urbanized areas such as the Washington, D.C., suburbs and Hampton Roads can outvote rural regions such as his, rendering their will irrelevant. Under Carrico’s revision, Obama would have received only four Virginia electoral votes last year while Republican Mitt Romney would have received nine. Romney carried conservative rural areas while Obama dominated Virginia’s cities and fast-growing suburbs. Virginia would be only the third state after Maine and Nebraska to apportion electors according to congressional districts, and by far the largest. Maine has only two U.S. House districts, and Nebraska has three. (Stop the Sodom & Gomorah big cities from destroying USA, also need to stop gerrymandering and set congressional districts up along county lines or have County Lines apportionment.)
Andrew Prokop wrote that 30 out of 50 states have binding laws regarding their electors and who won their respective states; 37 electors would be needed to defect, which is a tall order since the GOP picked their electors in the primaries, some of which along Trump and anti-Trump lines. Moreover, and most importantly, are GOP electors going to vote en masse to deny Trump the presidency? No. If that should happen, then these folks are surely not Republican and could throw the country in a constitutional crisis. Yet, let’s not dwell to heavily on that because Prokop noted that only nine electors have refused to abide by their states’ popular vote results in the last 100 years. Also, the state parties do a good job to ensure that such a fiasco isn’t going to happen. He added that it’s unrealistic, it’s dangerous, and it degrades our constitutional federal republic: 1) The Trump state electors are Republican Party stalwarts or activists chosen during state party deliberations — check out this excellent Politico feature “The People Who Pick the President” to see who some of them are. Almost always, the parties do a good enough job of vetting their respective electoral slates to ensure that they will indeed loyally back their party’s presidential nominee.
(popular vote within each state as is. Need electoral votes apportioned by county!) Ed Morrissey turns to the constitution and explains why this is going nowhere: The Constitution established the Electoral College as the process for electing the president and vice-president, a system so well embraced that later amendments fortified it rather than acted to eliminate it. Opponents of the Electoral College would have to pass another constitutional amendment to eliminate it, which would require the approval of two-thirds of both the House and Senate plus three-quarters of the states to ratify it...Which states would be willing to surrender their influence on presidential elections? It would take 38 to ratify even if one could get Congress to pass it with two-thirds majorities. Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan just got a taste of what being a swing state means, joining others like Colorado, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Ohio, and others. Would southern states surrender their electoral power to the Yankees? Would Midwestern states allow California and Florida to pick their presidents? Not a chance.
538 presidential electors selected by voters on Nov. 8 will choose a president when the Electoral College votes in states across the country. This year marks the fifth time in history the popular vote winner lost the presidency. The other elections were in 1824, 1876, 1888, and 2000. Though Donald Trump won 306 electoral votes to Hillary Clinton’s 232, it may not be over yet. Several activist groups are demanding electors reject their state’s voters and cast a vote for someone other than Trump. 12th Amendment The first major proposed change to the Electoral College was the only successful reform, coming in response to a glitch exposed in the 1800 election. Presidential candidate Thomas Jefferson and his vice presidential running mate Aaron Burr got the same number of Electoral College votes, 73 each. The problem was, in those days, the second place finisher in a presidential race was the vice president. The House of Representatives voted 35 times before finally electing Jefferson president. Congress passed the amendment on Dec. 9, 1803, and it was ratified on June 15, 1804, putting the president and vice president on a ticket for electors to choose.

The election didn’t work out for Hillary Clinton, nor did a campaign for recounts, with some results showed Donald Trump gaining votes. Now, claims that the Kremlin hacked the U.S. election to hand the Oval Office to Trump are falling apart, too. As one commenter to WND said, “What is next … blame Bigfoot, blame aliens, divine intervention, George Bush, global warming?” “Former British ambassador Craig Murray said he has met the person who handed over the emails and they WERE from the Democratic National committee,” the report said. “The emails were released by Mr. Assange’s site and caused damage to Hillary Clinton’s reputation with a number of shock revelations among tens of thousands of emails.” But Murray told reporters: “I’ve met the person who leaked them, and they are certainly not Russian and it’s an insider. It’s a leak, not a hack; the two are different things.”
If Congress claims the VA health system is good enough for our veterans, it should be good enough for them. Thankfully Rep. Warren Davidson introduced legislation to change that. It’s called the Lead by Example Act and it would require Members of Congress to live under the VA. It's time Congress has some skin in the game in order to help our veterans. For far too long our veterans have suffered under this terrible VA health care system. They deserve better. And Rep. Davidson’s bill is a big first step to reforming our broken VA system. Sign our petition to make Congress receive the same health care as our veterans.

(All Red States must get this passed) When people think about “voter fraud,” they tend to think about the dead voting, people voting in multiple precincts or party machines paying homeless people to cast ballots. While those are all legitimate concerns, the mass fraud happens long before the vote is cast – at the point of registration – says Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation and co-author of the book, “Who’s Counting? How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk.” By centering the debate on “voter ID” laws, the left has been able to divert attention away from the real source of the problem – lax voter-registration laws. Only seven states have strict photo ID voter laws. But even these are not enough to stop non-citizen green-card holders from illegally registering to vote and providing their driver’s licenses when they show up to cast a fraudulent vote. Only 4 states require proof of citizenship to register The heart of the matter comes down voter registration, which is based on an “honor system,” Spakovsky said. “Nobody is checking to make sure those registering to vote are citizens.” Right now, there are only four states that require residents to provide proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate or passport, when they register to vote. Those states are Alabama, Arizona, Georgia and Kansas – all of which backed Trump in November. The United States is currently bringing in a record 1.3 million legal immigrants per year, most of them on green cards and increasingly from hostile nations like Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Syria. A green card allows a foreign national to reside legally and permanently in the United States, as well as providing the right to work, obtain a driver’s license, purchase a gun and even serve in the U.S. military. But one of the few privileges not afforded to the green-card holder is the right to vote. Problem is, once you’ve afford all these other rights to the foreign national who’s here on a green card, what’s to stop them from registering to vote? There is no system in place to do that. Even the strictest voter ID law would not catch that green-card holder who checks off the “U.S. citizen” box on the voter registration application. He has his driver’s license or military ID to show at the polls, so he’s good to go.
Simply put, the U.S. selling Treasuries to other central banks besides China is a lot easier than China making up for losing access to U.S. consumer markets. Even the U.S. Federal Reserve could fill in the gap if needed even if China suddenly decided to stop buying. And then there’s the cheap goods we buy from China, but then again, those could be produced here or somewhere else. Doesn’t have to be China. Many observers will likely point to the Smoot-Hawley experience of the 1930s as evidence of what can go wrong in a trade war. But really, that lesson is more so for the country that is the net exporter, in this case, China, which has far more to lose in such a scenario.
(Watch the show How It’s Made and you will see how manufacturing has been automated with computers, machines & robots) In 1790, farmers were 90 percent of the U.S. labor force. By 1900, about 41 percent of our labor force was employed in agriculture. Today, less than 3 percent of Americans are employed in agriculture. What would Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton have done in the face of this precipitous loss of agricultural jobs? They might have outlawed all of the technological advances in science and machinery that have made our farmers the world's most productive and capable of producing the world's cheapest food. There's one thing to keep in mind. Losing a job due to outsourcing or losing it to technological innovation produces the same result for an individual: He's out of a job. The best thing that we can do is to have a robust economy such that he can find another job. The Luddites were 19th-century English textile workers who protested against newly developed labor-saving technologies. They went about destroying machinery that threatened to replace them with less-skilled, low-wage laborers.

The Supreme Court (which will get this case on direct appeal) has hesitated to intervene in such matters because of a knotty question: how to separate the acceptable and unacceptable types of partisan gerrymandering. The Democrats in Wisconsin offered a formula, devised by Nicholas Stephanopoulos, a University of Chicago law professor, and Eric McGhee, a research fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California, that permits simple assessments. What they refer to as the "efficiency gap" is enough to lock in GOP control in Madison for a full decade under almost any realistic conditions. The court found that the reapportionment violates the First and 14th amendments by intentionally hobbling Democratic voters. Every affected citizen, it said, is "an unequal participant in the decisions of the body politic."

To hear that Donald Trump may be appointing a man who not only led the charge to open the Boy Scouts to gay troop leaders but whose company directly gives to Planned Parenthood is upsetting at best. Meanwhile, it seems Tillerson will have plenty of GOP opposition over his ties to something (or rather, someone) else: Russian President Vladamir Putin.

(Trump won the popular votes from the most states!) And you also know that if it weren’t for California, Clinton wouldn’t have won the plurality of the popular vote. Hence, this is why we don’t elect our next leader based on the popular vote since the liberal Northeast and California don’t represent the country. Liberals may convince of themselves that it is, but it’s not true. Never has been. John Merline wrote in Investors Business Daily that if you remove deep blue California, Trump would have won 1.4 million more popular votes that Clinton:
The Fraternal Order of Police and The International Union of Police Associations have condemned (Oweblamer’s) latest appointment, which carries a six-year term and does not require Senate confirmation (via Brent Scher/Free Beacon): Adegbile was a lawyer with the NAACP that worked to appeal the conviction of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who murdered a Philadelphia police officer in 1981. “Obama’s goodbye present to police across the nation.” “That’s just the old kick in the teeth to the cops,”
Of course, Mrs. Obama is hopeless these days because Donald Trump will become our nation’s 45th President and demolish the odious Obama legacy. The First Lady and her husband joined the entire leadership of the Democrat Party to vigorously campaign for Hillary Clinton to become our next President. Despite their best efforts, Clinton lost the Electoral College to Trump by a landslide, 306-232. Trump will soon take office and will actually deliver tangible results to the American people instead of mere “hope and change” rhetoric like Barack Obama. The so-called “hope” delivered by the current administration consisted of the lowest home ownership rate in 51 years, millions of additional people on food stamps and in poverty, 15 million more Americans no longer in our nation’s workforce, stagnant wages, and skyrocketing health insurance premiums. As President, Barack Obama made many promises such as a stimulus plan that would create “shovel ready jobs,” and a health care plan that would lower costs, create jobs, not add to the deficit and give Americans the ability to keep their original plan and doctor if they wanted. Of course, all of these promises were eventually exposed as lies. Michelle Obama should talk to the millions of Americans who were negatively impacted by her husband’s policies and lost hope after his lies were revealed. The actual hope that Trump can deliver includes high paying jobs that can support a family. According to Judicial Watch, the total cost to the American people for all of the lavish Obama family vacations is more than $70 million and growing. In Hawaii, the Obama family will spend over two weeks enjoying luxurious accommodations provided by the American taxpayers. All of this is occurring while the average American supposedly injected with such Obama hope is lucky to afford even a measly family vacation in this economy. Fortunately, relief in the name of Donald Trump is on its way. The era of failed (democrap) policies and phony rhetoric is over for America, it’s time to get back to work.
Donald Trump's nominee for secretary of education, Betsy DeVos, probably survived the grilling she got from angry Democrats last week. I wish she'd said was: "No, Sen. Murray, I won't promise not to privatize! Didn't you notice the mess government schemes create? Many government-run schools are lousy! Private is better!" "Sen. Sanders, how clueless can you be? Your 'free' stuff is already bankrupting America! Your 'free' health care plan was rejected by your own state -- once your fellow Democrats did the math. Then your wife bankrupted Burlington College! You call yourself 'socialist!' Haven't you noticed that socialism wrecks people's lives? You should resign in shame!" DeVos should have said: "Senator, neither measure is fair to teachers or kids! The proficiency vs. growth argument is a by-product of your stupid No Child Left Behind law. Such federal micromanagement is terrible because every kid is different. That's why your opposition to choice is destructive. Of course, you don't even know how bad many government-run schools are. You sent your kids to a private school that charges $44,000 tuition. Get real, Al!" What DeVos should have said: "Senator! Have you no understanding of federalism? You think Washington, or you, know what's best for all schools in America? As education secretary, I don't have the power to ban guns. No federal official does! Read the Constitution, you ignorant control freak!"
Before the pilgrims left Europe, they planned to live in a communal society. Within 3 years, their socialistic experiment proved to be lacking in every way. (Democraps)Progressives claim they are “progressing” or “moving forward” to a better society. In reality, the system (Socialism,Progressivism,Communism,Communalsim,Utopia) they embrace already failed in America 400 years ago. Bradford and the investors composed a set of bylaws for the colony. For the first seven years, the colony would live in a communal system. The bylaws required all goods, food, clothing, and profits be placed in a “common stock”. Anyone needing supplies could take them from this community supply. According to the bylaws, at the end of seven years the investors would receive their payment. At that time, the “adventurers” and the people would equally divide all capital and profits. This included houses, land, goods and livestock. Bradford recorded the colonists’ experiences in Of Plymouth Plantation. He described how their society failed by 1623. But more importantly, he told how they fixed it. The healthy, younger men resented others benefiting from their labor. They considered it unjust. The older men found the handouts to be humiliating and disrespectful. The women felt force to serve men other than their husbands. They equated it to slavery. Many husbands refused to tolerate such treatment of their wives. (solution!) With the goal to “raise more corn, and obtain a better crop than they had done”, each family would farm their own crops on their own land. The Governor “allowed each man to plant corn for his own household.” He gave each family their own plot of land. The pilgrims were free to benefit from the fruits of their labor. This motivated them to work harder than ever. As a result, they produced even more crops than they imagined.
“This was very successful. It made all hands very industrious, so that much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been by any means the Governor or any other could devise, and saved him a great deal of trouble, and gave far better satisfaction.” The women felt their chains removed. They freely and willingly became equally productive citizens along side their husbands. Progressives honestly believe Utopia can be achieved by spreading the wealth around. Bradford’s documentation of the Plymouth Colony illustrates that a communal system failed with less than 100 people. With a nation of 350 million, it would be a complete disaster. The Plymouth community turned things around and benefited with pure capitalism. When people are free to not only produce, but to keep the results of their work, the entire society benefits.
I don’t want to help the liberals; they’re beyond help (plus, their tears are delicious). I want to offer support and advice to any conservatives unfortunate enough to find themselves in a room with a sniveling Democrat shaking with rage at the prospect of a lifelong corrupt politician losing the White House because they wanted to celebrate how she uses the toilet. So be on the lookout for hemp hoodies, man-buns, gripes about being unemployed, mention of a degree in any social science or gender/ethnic studies (goes hand-in-hand with unemployment), neck tattoos and face piercings, and a dense cloud of smugness about any topic that may come up. (safety pins) By dessert they should be micro-aggressed to the point of needing a coloring book and a safe space. When that happens, turn to them and say, “You know, I really think Bernie could’ve beaten Trump.”
Hebert said Sessions bypassed proper procedure by not first informing the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.
Three days later, however, on March 16, Hebert and another lawyer in the Civil Rights Division, Paul A. Hancock, filed affidavits asserting it was a different U.S. attorney, Sessions’ predecessor, who tried to stop the FBI probe. The matter is significant in exposing unfair attacks on Sessions when Reagan nominated him for a judgeship, now that Trump plans to nominate Sessions for attorney general, said Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow for The Heritage Foundation. Von Spakovsky said the affidavits “destroy Hebert’s credibility on anything connected with Sessions.” “These affidavits correcting the record, which got almost no media attention, are another sign that the claims made against Jeff Sessions 30 years ago were baseless and entirely manufactured,” von Spakovsky told The Daily Signal. Sessions denied accusations by Thomas Figures, a former assistant U.S. attorney who is black, who said Sessions called him “boy” and told him to watch himself around “white folks.” While a lawyer in Justice’s Civil Rights Division, Hancock said, he worked with Sessions because there were many civil rights cases in Alabama and he “never had any difficulty.”
(Repubs need to remember how Democraps fought & opposed Trump’s team and when the time comes to do the same to them) Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) who's has taken the biggest share of unwarranted criticism, as the media tries to dredge up manufactured controversies older than most of the reporters writing the stories. It's a strategy straight out of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, the Left's bible of political engagement. The quarterback may have changed, but the game plan hasn't. "The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition." Then, "pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it." Well, liberals have managed to pick the targets, but so far, they've had trouble freezing them. That's because leaders like Jeff Sessions with decades of career accolades, accomplishments, and allies refuse to be intimidated by the Left's smear tactics. And while the liberal media may be in the bag against the former Alabama Attorney General, plenty of people -- African Americans and Democrats included -- are combatting the lies.
Talk radio host Michael Savage says President-elect Donald Trump should avoid choosing Reince Priebus as his chief of staff, calling him the "the enemy within," and claiming that Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, is part of the Republican establishment. "He's the RNC! Everything the voters rejected. He will steer Trump away from every policy we sent him to D.C. to change He is the enemy within. He is (Paul) Ryan, (Mitch) McConnell, and the Old Guard.
As one of his biggest supporters during the presidential election campaign, Michael Savage vowed to hold Donald Trump’s feet to the fire should he win, ensuring that the real estate billionaire fulfills his promise to reform Washington. Less than a week after Trump’s victory, the nationally syndicated talk-radio host is keeping his word, criticizing the appointment of Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as White House chief of staff. Savage acknowledged that the appointment of former Breitbart chief Steve Bannon as senior adviser to Trump provides a counterbalance to Priebus, but he argued Priebus will be leading the effort to fill 4,000 administration positions. “Priebus will create the top layer of bureaucracy in the country, not Bannon,” Savage said. “Trump could have chosen Bannon, but he didn’t.” He also noted that the chief of staff is the gatekeeper to the White House. “He decides who sleeps in the Lincoln bedroom,” Savage said. “We’re going to have lobbyists, we’re going to have Republican loyalists. We’ll have the same, exact thing we got under Boehner and McConnell,” said Savage. They want the status quo. “It’s going to be the Chamber of Commerce. It’s as though Jeb Bush won.”
President-Elect Donald Trump has selected Rep. Tom Price, MD -- a Georgia Republican -- to serve as Secretary of Health and Human Services. On a personal level, Price is an orthopedic surgeon who can draw on his vast experience of actually treating patients in order to help convey the policy ideas the Trump administration and Congressional Republicans will roll out. Price was at the forefront of proposing detailed, thoughtful legislation to that very end. He has spent a lot of time thinking about how uproot Obamacare and supplant it with something much better for doctors and consumers. Price told me unequivocally that reforming the system has to start with fully repealing Obamacare: At the same time, in contrast to some conservatives, Price told me, "Coverage is important, and our bill, the 'Empowering Patients First Act,' we believe provides not just an incentive, but the financial feasibility for every single American to purchase the coverage that they want." He added that "the system doesn't work if people aren't covered." ... Price's plan was very similar to the House Republican plan promoted by Ryan, and as Budget Committee chair, Price embraced Ryan's proposals to block grant Medicaid to states and transition Medicare to a system where seniors would use subsidies to choose among competing private plans.
Price has also proposed the creation of independent health insurance pools for more affordable coverage in the individual and small group markets, and also a change in the law allowing association health plans, enabling small business owners to band together across state lines. Moreover, similar to Trump, Price supports strengthening and enhancing health savings accounts by allowing increased contributions and greater flexibility in the use of these accounts, as well as permitting individuals to buy health plans licensed in other states.

First, it is sexual promiscuity that causes STDs, not homophobia. Second, there is more promiscuity among gays than straights. Third, men who have sex with men (MSM) have the highest rate of STDs, to the point that the CDC reported in 2010 (and beyond) that, “Gay Men’s HIV Rate 44 Times that of Other Men; Syphilis Rate 46 Times Higher.” Tragically, these numbers remain extremely high, and even a 2015 CDC report that is quite sympathetic to the gay community states that, “Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (collectively referred to as MSM) are at increased risk for STDs, including antimicrobial resistant gonorrhea, when compared to women and exclusively heterosexual men.” Could it be that God did not design our bodies for promiscuity or homosexual acts? If we want to reduce STDs – among heterosexuals as well as homosexuals – that’s the place where we need to focus.
ten famous adoptees that have helped change the world:
1. "They brought me up as if I were their own child. They worried about me, guided me, and punished me, all in the spirit of fairness. I never doubted their love." – The late South African president Nelson Mandela, speaking of his adoptive father, Chief Jongintaba.
2. "I wanted to meet [my birthmom] mostly to see if she was okay and to thank her, because I'm glad I didn't end up as an abortion. My [adoptive] parents made me feel special. They were my parents. 1000%" - The late Apple founder, Steve Jobs, who was adopted at birth by Paul and Clara Jobs.
3. "I sent a wire to Chicago to tell my family that the adoption had gone through. I didn't have much experience with telegrams, but I knew they had to be brief. This one read: HI DAD." – The late former First Lady Nancy Reagan describing her joy of being adopted by her stepfather, Dr. Loyal Davis.
4. "It was at St. Mary's that I met and learned to love the greatest man I've ever known. He was the father I needed. He taught me to read, write and the difference between right and wrong." Baseball legend Babe Ruth on his adoptive father, Brother Mathias.
A black Air Force veteran is fed up at anti-Trump rioters who disrespect America’s flag, refuse to say the Pledge of Allegiance, reject their duly-elected president and wreak havoc in U.S. cities, smashing windows, blocking freeways and igniting fires.
In fact, Thaddeus Dionne Alexander is so outraged by the rioters that he posted a video on YouTube and Facebook – and his message is going viral with 20 million views and nearly a million shares on Facebook alone. “Wow, y’all are protesting? Really? Man, I don’t understand. It’s not Republicans causing all this destruction, you know, burning up the streets, blocking roads and things like that. It’s the liberals,” Alexander begins. “You know, these are the same people that are against the Second Amendment. Because they want to ‘decrease violence,’ nobody should have guns. The same people that are [pro]-abortion because they want to ‘save lives.’ And you’re causing all this destruction just because your candidate lost.” But Alexander explains, in America, “You can’t always get your way.”
As WND reported, when President George W. Bush nominated her to be his labor secretary, Chinese dissidents like Hongda “Harry” Wu were shocked. “I worry about Elaine Chao’s business relationship with communist China,” he said in 2001. “This woman has a significant shipping business through her father.” James S.C. Chao is the founder of New York-based Foremost Maritime Corp., which ships goods to China and also buys ships from the China State Shipbuilding Corporation. Chao’s ties to former Chinese President Jiang Zemin run deep. The two were classmates at Jiao Tong University in Shanghai and have kept in touch ever since. Does anyone even remember Chinagate? WND reported back in 2001 that a review of financial assets held by Chao and her husband, McConnell, reveals she has served as a director of an insurance company that jointly owns a Lippo Group subsidiary with the Chinese government. Indonesia-based Lippo is controlled by the Riady family and was at the center of the Clinton Chinagate fundraising scandal. Lippo chief executive James T. Riady agreed to plead guilty to a felony charge of defrauding the U.S. government by funneling donations to the campaign of Bill Clinton – and others. Senate financial-disclosure records show that Chao held a seat on the board of Protective Life Corp., which owns 50 percent of CRC Protective Life Insurance. Lippo co-owns the rest of the Hong Kong-based unit with China Resources Holdings Co., an intelligence-gathering front company for China’s People’s Liberation Army.
In the thousands of federal, state, and local races on the ballot, who got elected? And more importantly, how will they address issues like Obamacare, the size and scope of government, sanctity of life, religious liberty, nomination of Supreme Court Justices, and more? FRC Action PAC exists to help elect candidates who will stand strong for faith, family, and freedom as elected officials. This year we supported 159 candidates across the country and are excited that 92% won. We want to thank you for your support. We couldn't have done it without people like you.
Winning the White House is one thing; managing an entire administration is quite another. Fortunately, he'll have solid conservatives around him to do it. We know that for a fact because FRC's Ken Blackwell is one of them! Yesterday, the former Mayor of Cincinnati, U.N. Ambassador, and Ohio Secretary of State was tapped to lead Donald Trump's domestic transition team. Ken, who has one of the most diverse backgrounds in the conservative movement, was not just picked for his experience, but because Donald Trump recognizes the importance of Christian conservatives and their role in delivering the White House into Republican hands.
"Weeping may endure for the night," the Psalmist David wrote, "but joy comes in the morning." In the case of most Americans, those nights stretched into very long years -- a nightmare from which the nation finally awoke last night with the astonishing news that voters rejected the continuation of the anti-faith, anti-family policies of Barack Obama. Instead, a nation spurned by almost a decade of a radical liberalism turned out with a vengeance -- electing Donald Trump in perhaps the most stunning political upset of the modern age.
“The Times put out a timeline tracking the election results as they broke for Trump last night,” Bachmann continued. “We went wild in the Dallas studio last night when David Barton, Ken and Terri Copeland, and various pastors saw that the victory for Trump began exactly at the precise moment believers corporately, over national television, sought the Lord for His favor upon our nation.” Bachmann said there had been a genuine repentance and coordinated beseeching of God. She told WND, “We saw the effective fervent prayers of righteous believers availing much.” “And, prayers so specific,” she explained, “we prayed for elections by county and cities and districts. We literally watched results follow the faithful effectual prayers of righteous people who had humbled themselves and cried out to God for his mercy. This wasn’t credit for us; this was clearly the Lord’s gracious doing.” But it was where those people voted that made all the difference. Providentially, perhaps, the shift toward Trump happened in the key swing states needed to push him over the top in the all-important Electoral College.
Writing in the Washington Post, Harvard astronomer Howard Smith, an observant Jew forcefully blunts Stephen Hawking’s assertion that “The human race is just a chemical scum on a moderate-sized planet.” Of course, it’s not only Dr. Hawking who says as much — denying human exceptionalism is close to universal orthodoxy among the socio-academic demographic he occupies. Carl Sagan put the same view a little more mildly: “We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star.” Smith points out, however, that science considered objectively is much closer to the exceptionalist conclusion. In truth, humanity is something momentous in the cosmos. Weighing these assertions by Hawking and Sagan, Smith writes: An objective look…at just two of the most dramatic discoveries of astronomy — big bang cosmology and planets around other stars (exoplanets) — suggests the opposite. We seem to be cosmically special, perhaps even unique — at least as far as we are likely to know for eons. The first result — the anthropic principle — has been accepted by physicists for 43 years. The universe, far from being a collection of random accidents, appears to be stupendously perfect and fine-tuned for life. The strengths of the four forces that operate in the universe — gravity, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear interactions (the latter two dominate only at the level of atoms) — for example, have values critically suited for life, and were they even a few percent different, we would not be here. Dr. Smith concludes on a hortatory note: It seems we might even serve some cosmic role. So this season let us be grateful for the amazing gifts of life and awareness, and acknowledge the compelling evidence to date that humanity and our home planet, Earth, are rare and cosmically precious. And may we act accordingly.
Only Earth has a large satellite within the inner solar system, but it does more than just provide romantic nights and opportunities for photographers. It generates tides that refresh the oceans. It stabilizes the Earth’s tilt. And it possesses a remarkable “coincidence” that allows for total solar eclipses (heads up Americans: there’s one coming on August 21, 2017 from Oregon to South Carolina). As shown in The Privileged Planet, this arrangement allowed astronomers to deduce facts about the distant cosmos, such as the discovery of helium and confirmation of Einstein’s theory of relativity.
1. What do you mean by racism? First of all, you need to realize that academic leftists rarely understand the terms they are using when they attack conservatives. Racism is a specific belief that races can be ranked according to genetically inherited characteristics. For example, when a white supremacist takes a racist view of blacks he is really saying that they are genetically inferior. This genetic inferiority allegedly manifests itself in lower intelligence, which, in turn, translates into other undesirable characteristics such as sloth and a propensity toward crime. If the professor cannot supply the correct definition of racism after he has used the term then he makes a complete fool of himself. If he can supply the correct definition, this leads to an even bigger problem, which we will explore with the second question.
2. How does racism apply to the situation at hand? If the professor does happen to know the real definition of racism then he’s in quite a pickle here. You can ask the professor “How exactly does the assertion that ’all lives matter’ (read: all lives have equal value) translate into the notion that certain categories of people are genetically inferior to other categories of people?”
3. Have you ever considered the following? After showing that the professor doesn’t know the meaning of the words he is using and has no evidence to support his position his credibility is decimated. Now it is time to move in for the kill.
For example, one could simply ask, “Have you ever considered that the statement ‘all lives matter’ is fundamentally anti-racist?” Asking, “Are you at all concerned that by opposing an anti-racist statement you align yourself with the true racists” would be a good follow-up question from which the professor could never recover.

civilization jihad is a strategy initially devised by the Muslim Brotherhood. “They use violent jihad, but they also use civilization jihad, which is a long-term form of sort of cultural jihad, so to speak, in which they infiltrate a country, a government from within … use the liberal immigration laws to their advantage and have their people not assimilate into the culture, but live in enclaves and sort of stick to themselves until they get enough numbers, until they build up their numbers, and then we see more violent jihad unfold at that point,” Hohmann explained to Elder. Hohmann, author of the forthcoming book “Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration and the Resettlement Jihad,” said the Obama administration has facilitated civilization jihad by importing tens of thousands of Muslim refugees from the Middle East and North Africa. And he doesn’t believe there’s anything he could say to Obama that would convince the president to change his refugee policy. “He’s going right down to the bitter end with pummeling our cities and towns with more and more refugees,” Hohmann noted. “They’re trying to get in as many as possible before he leaves office to the point where they’re even running out of money now, I hear, at the Office of Refugee Resettlement.” To Hohmann, it looks like Obama has accomplished exactly what he set out to do.

The one common denominator of all nine attacks is that each was carried out by Muslim immigrants or sons of Muslim immigrants.
Attack at Ohio State Brings US Terror Plots, Attacks to 93 Since 9/11
(Truck control or immigration/visa/refugee/border control, coming to USA) At least 9 dead and 50 injured from truck massacre at a #Berlin Christmas market, treated by local authorities as a terror attack. #Germany — Michael Wilner (@mawilner) December 19, 2016 A truck driver has driven into a crowd of shoppers in a Christmas market in Berlin, Germany. Multiple people are reported to be injured. The attack is eerily reminiscent of the Bastille Day attack in France last year.
the incident is reminiscent of an attack in the French city of Nice in July, when more than 80 died after a truck plowed through late-night crowds celebrating Bastille Day. The deaths in the German capital threaten to further undermine Chancellor Angela Merkel’s domestic political standing going into an election year. Her open-door refugee policy of last year polarized voters and fed support for the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany party.
It was during arguments on the issue of Obergefell, the case through which five leftist judges on the Supreme Court destroyed millennia of precedent and overturned their own ruling from only months earlier to create same-sex “marriage” across the nation.
There, Justice Samuel Alito was asking about the ramifications of the decision on religious rights. “Well, in the Bob Jones case, the court held that a college was not entitled to tax-exempt status if it opposed interracial marriage or interracial dating. So would the same apply to a university of a college if it opposed same-sex marriage?” he said. Obama’s solicitor general, Don Verrilli, triggered a groundswell of reaction when he said: “You know, I, I don’t think I can answer that question without knowing more specifics, but it’s certainly going to be an issue. I don’t deny that. I don’t deny that, Justice Alito. It is – it is going to be an issue.”
“With the mainstream media busy celebrating the Supreme Court’s ultimate recognition of a right to same-sex marriage, this didn’t get that much attention in mainstream news outlets. But [it] … was big news in both the conservative blogosphere and in publications catering to religiously traditionalist audiences,” Bernstein wrote. “The idea that Regent University or Brigham Young University or the local Catholic university or the many hundreds of other religious schools – and potentially other religious organizations – could be put at a severe competitive disadvantage if they refused on theological grounds to extend the same recognition to same-sex couples as to opposite-sex couples struck many as a direct and serious assault on religious liberty.
“In short, many religious Christians of a traditionalist bent believed that liberals not only reduced their deeply held beliefs to bigotry, but want to run them out of their jobs, close down their stores and undermine their institutions,” he wrote. He said the election results bear out that suspicion that religious people had an influence. “Trump received 81 percent of the white evangelical Christian vote, and Hillary Clinton only 16 percent. He quoted Sean Trend of RealClearPolitics who noted that Democrats in recent years booed the inclusion of God in their platform, endorsed demands on schools for transgender students, tried to get small business to cover abortion-inducing drugs, tried to force nuns to provide contraceptives, torpedoed Eich, closed down Sweet Cakes and more. Continued Bernstein, “Megan McArdle of Bloomberg similarly pointed out, ‘Over the last few years, as controversies have erupted over the rights of cake bakers and pizza places to refuse to cater gay weddings, the rights of nuns to refuse to provide insurance that covers birth control, the rights of Catholic hospitals to refuse to perform abortions, and the rights of Christian schools to teach (and require students and teachers to practice) traditional Christian morality, some Christians have begun to feel that their communities are under existential threat.'”
But the election results now give Trump the open door to nominate conservative justices. And several of the most liberal voters at the court are in or approaching their 80s, leaving open the possibility that a President Trump could do as he’s promised and name multiple judges who have the will to overturn Roe v. Wade, the holy grail of abortion and the one outcome, if changed, could most significantly impact a liberal agenda.
Trump was sticking up for Americans — all of them — against threats to the U.S. national interests, as he perceives them. That is not divisive. They may not be the priorities shared by his opponents, and that is a fair discussion that can be had. But Trump’s critics have never sought a fair discussion, preferring fake ones where ignoring tariffs on U.S. goods present in “free trade” agreements is considered the pinnacle of economic literacy, where calling for halts to immigration from regions with high rates of Islam-motivated terrorism is “racist,” and where wanting to protect the rights of the unborn is a “sexist” attitude and not, say, a sincere belief in the sanctity of human life.
Though the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court occasioned by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia is the most prominent of these vacancies, there are 104 total vacancies and 38 judicial emergencies in the federal courts as of this writing. Of the 104 current vacancies, one is on the Supreme Court, 13 are on the federal appeals courts, 82 are in U.S. district courts, and eight are in courts of special jurisdiction like the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
What’s at stake for big green is billions upon billions of dollars taken from taxpayers and consumers and given to green crony businesses. Just for wind energy alone, grants, tax credits, loan guarantees, and other subsidies add up to at least $176 billion. As costly as our current energy and climate policies are to the economy (they would cost the U.S. a net loss of 400,000 jobs and up to $2.5 trillion), they are projected to have negligible impacts on global temperatures—even if you believe the questionable climate models of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Like most skeptics, Ebell recognizes the basic carbon dioxide science: Adding carbon dioxide to the atmosphere may somewhat increase warming. But he also recognizes the much more important question: How much is this “somewhat”? Ebell and those following the numbers know that the Earth’s warming to date is much less than the IPCC models predicted and that the actual data don’t point to a climate catastrophe. In addition, the unhinged claims of ever-worsening, extreme climate events don’t square with the data either. There are no upward trends in droughts, floods, tornadoes, or hurricanes. Because knowledge of these facts is such a threat to the climate-industrial complex, anyone who dares to expose the truth comes under threat of personal destruction.
When the Southern Poverty Law Center infamously labeled retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, at the time a candidate in the GOP primary for president and one of the most respected men in America, a “hater” for his traditional Christian values, the public outrage prompted a quick retreat. Now another organization, Right Wing Watch, funded by leftist billionaire George Soros, has gone down the same path. But it wasn’t the “hater” label applied to Carson; it was “grifter.” The report from Brian Tashman was headlined “Trump picks fellow unqualified grifter and conspiracy theorist Ben Carson for HUD.” Dictionaries define the word as someone who runs a side show at a circus, or “a swindler, dishonest gambler, or the like.” “The ultimate objective with SPLC is raising money – big money. It does this through lawsuits – lots of lawsuits, occasionally even on behalf of real victims of racism. It pockets most of the money raised through heart-wrenching direct-mail pitches,” he noted. “The most famous example was a judgment SPLC won for a black woman whose son was killed by the Ku Klux Klan. While Morris Dees and company raised $9 million sending out solicitation letters featuring a gruesome picture of the victim, the mom received a total of $51,875 in the settlement. Dees pays himself more than $280,000 a year from the ‘charity.'”
Brennan admitted in 2016 to supporting the Communist Party presidential candidate – a hardline, unrepentant Stalinist named Gus Hall – in the 1976 presidential election. Neither was Brennan penitent about casting that vote. Brennan has long been cozy with the Muslim Brotherhood. Despite evidence presented (and later upheld) in federal court during the landmark 2008 Holy Land Foundation trial, which established the Islamic Society of North America as a Muslim Brotherhood organization and financial supporter of the terrorist organization Hamas, Brennan has continued to meet with ISNA officials and participate in ISNA events. At ISNA’s annual conference in 2009, for example, Brennan delivered the keynote address. It gets worse. One of the FBI’s former top experts on Islam says Brennan converted to Islam years ago in Saudi Arabia. John Guandolo says Brennan remains a closeted Muslim, having been recruited by the Saudis as part of a counter-intelligence operation.

ISIS only dreams of exacting the human casualties the Mexican cartels achieve, despite decades of the “War on Drugs.” The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) estimates heroin-related overdose deaths increased 244 percent between 2007 and 2013. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimated nearly 1,000,000 American heroin users in 2014. The DEA’s 2015 threat assessment says Mexican drug cartels “remain the greatest criminal drug threat to the United States; no other group can challenge them in the near term.” Mexican drug cartels are engaged in an insidious and deadly attack on our country – right now. The American heroin market begins in the poppy fields of Mexico. Controlled by the cartels, and more recently assisted by Southwest Asians who provide agricultural production techniques (increasing both quantity and quality) – and combat training for the cartel armies (learned by fighting US forces). The cartel armies are increasingly dangerous and more sophisticated. In May 2015, the Wall Street Journal reported foreign fighters training the Jalisco New Generation Cartel in how to shoot down Mexican Army helicopters. It’s “win-win” for the Mexican cartels and the jihadis. Barranca del Cobre (Copper Canyon) and the rural southwest corner of Chihuahua are the Sinaloa Cartel’s base for poppy production. Reportedly, the same area has the largest concentration of Islamists in Mexico – surpassed, perhaps, only by Mexico City. None of this information is “news” to U.S. law enforcement, intelligence, defense or diplomatic officials. The staff of the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC) literally watches it all go on – right under their noses. How can this be? We have an “insider threat” – corrupt law enforcement officers at the municipal, state and federal levels – who are bought and paid for by the Mexican cartels. They need to start by “cleaning house” at the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security. When someone self-righteously defends wide open borders, show him this article. Watch Chris here as he discusses this most serious of issues.
Michelle Obama says she was shaken to her core over the 2005 Trump audio. How come she wasn’t shaken to the core over how Ted Kennedy handled the death of Mary Jo Kopechne in the Chappaquiddick incident? One lady said she didn’t want Trump to be president, so why didn’t she go to the New York Times or CNN last year during the primary? Why didn’t these 5 women come out before the general election? Bringing these allegations up 26 days before the election suggests manipulation. In addition, the media knows exactly what they are doing. They released information on the Trump accusers but won’t do any stories on the 12 year old who was beaten and raped, and how Hillary Clinton defended the rapist.
We used to be a nation that focused on the rights of the individual, which are unalienable, eternal, and God given rights. We are paying for our own demise. This election is about stopping the statists’ agenda. It will not completely turn America around but it’s about damage control. In addition, this election has underscored how corrupt the media are. Their corruption can be seen in the kinds of things they report, what they omit, and in certain politicians they cover up for.
This election is not about electing a conservative but about damage control after the Obama administration. Trump is not a conservative and he’s might not be reliable on some of the conservative positions that he has adopted. But Hillary Clinton is a reliable Alinsky ideologue and wants single payer health care, massive tax increases and liberal justices on the Supreme Court. In addition, Hillary Clinton doesn’t care about the Constitution, she wants the institutionalization of the leftist agenda in the Constitution which will make it impossible to change down the road. Trump wants to pick judges that will respect the Constitution. It’s not the moral, principled, conservative thing to do to stand down in this election. Is it moral to support someone like Hillary who unleashed suffering in the Middle East through her policies? When Ted Cruz said vote your conscience he wasn’t talking about reputation but rather what is good for the country.
At least 29 people were injured in an apparent bomb blast on 29th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues in Manhattan Saturday night, with (democrap) Mayor Bill De Blasio insisting there is currently no evidence of a terror plot. The New York Police Department’s counterterrorism bureau said it was responding to the explosion, which came hours after a pipe bomb exploded in a Jersey Shore garbage can shortly before a scheduled charity race there benefiting Marines and Navy sailors. De Blasio said authorities had not found anything connecting the Chelsea and New Jersey incidents. The FBI and Department of Homeland Security are leading the investigation. Anyone with information on the incident is urged to call 1-800-CALL-FBI and select Option No. 1.
The bomb that injured 29 people on Saturday in Manhattan was filled with shrapnel and made with pressure cookers, flip phones and Christmas lights that set off a powerful explosive compound, law enforcement officials told The New York Times Sunday. Another bomb that did not detonate was designed with similar features.
Three devices along a charity-race route in New Jersey — only one of which exploded — were also rigged to detonate using a cell phone as a timer. Federal Bureau of Investigation investigators will examine remnants of the bomb plus an unexploded device found four blocks away as well as a pipe bomb that exploded about 80 miles (130 km) away in New Jersey on Saturday to see if they were connected, officials said.
The blast happened the same day as a knife attack at a mall in central Minnesota when a man wounded nine people before he was shot to death by an off-duty police officer. The assailant was a "soldier of the Islamic State," the militant group said on Sunday.
The suspect has been ID'd by authorities as 28-year-old Ahmad Rahami. He is still considered armed and dangerous. Five more bombs were found in a backpack near a New Jersey train station Sunday night. One exploded when a bomb squad robot tried to disarm it.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s July 4, 2014 sermon, in which he declared the global caliphate and himself as its self-proclaimed ruler, the caliph. When the enemy speaks, perhaps we should listen. Here, al-Badhdadi was speaking to the Ummah. The dilemma is that those radicalized by Islamic State will not recognize the legitimacy of secular governments anywhere, since their goal is hegemony of the Ummah. Looking at their passports to check which countries they traveled to will matter a lot less than identifying a belief in this goal. In other words, you do not need to be from or have traveled to Syria, Iraq, or other terror havens to believe in the hegemony of the Ummah — but you do need to be a Muslim. Rahami, who visited Afghanistan two years ago, or the San Bernardino killer, Syed Farook, who also visited Saudi Arabia before his attack and who obtained a fiancé visa for his new spouse, Tashfeen Malik. Trump is referring to 8 U.S.C. 1182(f), a broad grant of power by Congress under the heading, "Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President," which states: Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. In fact, there are currently 16 such presidential travel restrictions in place against certain countries. These communities must be assisted to help regain awareness of Islamic State's target audience for radicalization: young Muslims. Parents and families have to be involved, for they may be the final warning system that can catch the killers before they act.
Philip Haney, a retired Homeland Security officer, co-author of “See Something Say Nothing” and a student of Islamic studies, said Dhimmitude can be brought in gradually through peaceful means if a people are willing to submit voluntarily and refuse to defend their culture against Islam’s claims of superiority. A favorite tactic of Islamic leaders is to present Muslims living in Western democracies as an “oppressed” people. This strategy comes straight from the Quran, Haney said, in the doctrine of “fitna,” an Arabic word translated as “persecution” or “oppression.” Basically, anyone who opposes the implementation of Shariah law is guilty of causing “fitna.” The concept of fitna gets its authority from Quran 8:39, which states, “And fight them until persecution [fitna] is no more, and religion is all for Allah. But if they cease, then lo! Allah is Seer of what they do. The phrase “if they cease” is a reference to the dhimmis who agree to become second-class citizens subservient to Islam, basically a conquered people. In military conquests, Quran 5:31-33 provides specific detail on what Muslims are allowed to do to a rebellious non-Muslim who refuses to live in submission to Islam. Haney said. “That is why Muslims feel they are the victims wherever they go because when the non-majority culture or the minority refuses to submit to Islam they, meaning the Muslims, are oppressed. “Fitna is fundamental to Islam. Everything in the world that opposes the implementation of Shariah law is a fitna, and therefore by the Quran they are authorized to eliminate that fitna, fight against it, until all people are for Allah. Everywhere they go, therefore, any opposition they find, they are authorized to wage violence against it.”
(Judiciary is very important, will KiLIARy select more federal & supreme court judges?) Much of President Barack Obama’s executive action legacy will be decided by the courts after he leaves office, but he had a rough judicial record while serving. Though Obama has frequently touted his pen and phone policymaking, these actions on immigration, environmental policy, and presidential appointees have often been swatted away by the Supreme Court. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, issued a July 2014 report that found 20 instances in which a unanimous high court ruled against the administration. Not all of these cases were executive actions, but legal interpretations by an agency.
The very first line of today’s court ruling in PHH Corporation v. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) states: “This is a case about executive power and individual liberty.” The bureau was created in 2010 by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and imbued with unparalleled powers over virtually every consumer financial product and service. Established within the Federal Reserve System, the bureau was designed to operate independently, and with virtually no oversight. CFPB funding was set by law at a fixed percentage of the Federal Reserve’s operating budget. This budget independence has barred congressional oversight of the agency, and its status within the Fed also precludes presidential oversight. Even the Federal Reserve is statutorily prohibited from “intervening” in bureau affairs. Banks, mortgage lenders, and other credit establishments have largely cowered before Cordray and his troops, agreeing to nine-figure settlements rather than engage in prolonged litigation. PHH Corp., however, is the hero of this story. After Cordray unilaterally hiked a fine against the mortgage lender from $6 million to $109 million—despite no demonstration of lawbreaking—the New Jersey company decided to fight back. And it is about time someone did.” As chronicled in the majority opinion by Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh, PHH asserted that the bureau’s structure violates Article II of the Constitution because it operates as an independent agency headed by a single director. To comply with Article II, PHH argued, the agency’s director must be removable at will by the president or the bureau must be structured as a multimember commission. This principle is fundamental to protecting citizens from unchecked government power. the court instead settled on a narrower remedy, to wit: sever the unconstitutional provision from the statute and grant the president the power to supervise and direct Cordray (and his successors).
if you watch the video in its entirety, you know that there is more to the story. And the alleged comments “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping” do not appear. Trump said, and from this video, it appears to be true, “I [Trump] saved her job.” But the DNC, in its typical dishonest, twisted, win at all cost behavior took one man’s attempt to help and turned it into a gotcha moment. I am hopeful the American people will see through this façade by not casting their lot with the Clinton Crime Machine.
Movies with no homosexual content make about six times more money at the box office than movies with some, frequent or heavy homosexual content, according to a three-year study by Movieguide and the Christian Film & Television Commission. “We do an analysis of all [categories of] the box office and for many years, people would say that violence sells or sex sells and of course, we’ve found that not to be the case,” Baehr told WND. Homosexual content in a movie may sell to the “the 2.5 or 3 percent who claim to be LGBT or homosexual or bisexual, but 98 percent of the moviegoers who don’t think about that, think about family and think about marriage.” “One of the leading reasons people go to movies is that for a short while they are able to live vicariously through the characters on the screen,” Greene said. “This is why we constantly reverberate ‘believable characters.’ A very small percentage of the population are LGBT, so most people do not have daily interaction with that sector of the population. Baehr concludes: “The story here is that it’s better to sell four tickets to a family than one ticket to a person who is a very small minority and who is looking for some sort of affirmation. If you (filmmakers) want to make big money you need to not alienate the biggest audience out there.
Senate Overrides Obama's 9/11 Veto, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) celebrated the successful effort. “I applaud my colleagues for joining together and with the American people to stand against President Obama’s attempt to deprive terror victims from receiving full recourse under the law,” Sen. Cruz said. “Our nation has a duty to ensure that American victims of terrorism, first and foremost the 9/11 families, are able to receive justice.
Judicial Watch is credited for unearthing Obama administration scandals including important information about Benghazi, Fast & Furious, the Hillary Clinton email scandal, and more.
during her first senatorial bid, Hillary Clinton also promised jobs to the economically depressed region of the state of New York—200,000 to be exact. Citing a report from the Washington Post, CBSNews states: “Jobs data show that job growth stagnated in Upstate New York during her eight years in office, the report said, and manufacturing jobs dropped by nearly a quarter.” The Post’s extensive story reveals that jobs never materialized—despite “initial glowing headlines.” It claims: “Clinton’s self-styled role as economic promoter” actually “involved loyal campaign contributors who also supported the Clinton Foundation.” Through federal grants and legislation, she helped steer money to programs, companies, and initiatives that benefitted the donors but failed to reverse the economic decline of the region.
The year-long joint U.N. and OPCW inquiry, which is investigating reports of attacks between April 11 2014 and Aug. 21 2015, is due to submit its fourth report to the U.N. Security Council next week. The third report, in August, blamed Syrian government troops for two chlorine gas attacks and Islamic State militants for using sulfur mustard gas.
The value of a wall begins with stopping "murderers" and "rapists" from freely entering and re-entering our country with impunity, as Trump mentioned when he announced the start of his campaign last year, but it doesn't stop there. Felony assault by motor vehicle is another deadly crime that seems to be rampant by illegal aliens driving recklessly without the licenses or insurance that law-abiding Americans take for granted. The wall would also stop the plague of heroin that has exploded during the last few years of the Obama administration. Deaths from heroin overdoses surpassed deaths from car crashes last year and will hit a new record this year. Most U.S. heroin is delivered by Mexicans working for the drug cartels. Of course, most Mexican immigrants are not murderers, rapists, drunk drivers or drug dealers. But even the good, hard-working people who come here from south of the border, both legally and illegally, have such low education and skills that they can't survive economically without massive public subsidies to provide for the care, food, shelter, health care, education and welfare of their children.
Voters finally have the opportunity to choose a president who will make America first by securing our border and ending one-sided trade deals that favor foreign workers rather than our own.
When Obama entered the Oval Office, liberal judges controlled just one of the 13 circuits of the U.S. Court of Appeals. Fifty-five successful presidential nominations later, liberal majorities now control nine of those appeals benches, or 70 percent.
Outside of legal circles the transformation of the influential federal appeals courts has gone largely unnoticed, though.
“The Supreme Court grabs the spotlight, but it hears fewer than 100 cases a year,” Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett said, “while the 13 federal courts of appeals handle about 35,000.” More than one-third of the 179 judges on federal appeals courts owe their seat to Obama, Willett told The Daily Signal.
(BIG MEDIA & JOURNOLIST, where do you get your rigged propaganda?) The mainstream media doesn’t think you should hear about it, just like they don’t think you hear about the WikiLeaks revelations or other stories that could help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton. As I scanned the online news sites of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, along with the New York Times, the Washington Post, Time, and Newsweek, not one of them had one syllable about these charges against Hillary Clinton – and I searched these sites 8 hours after the Drudge headline went live. But should this surprise when recently released reports indicate that political donations from the media are 27-1 in favor of Hillary over Trump? And should it surprise us when off-the-record meetings are set up with media elites and the Clinton campaign? professors S. Robert Lichter and Stanley Rothman ‘released a groundbreaking survey of 240 journalists at the most influential national media outlets — including the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Time, Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, ABC, CBS, NBC and PBS — on their political attitudes and voting patterns.’ The survey found these ‘media elites’ to be shockingly liberal
Most of all media in this country is owned by just a few companies, Free Press finds in a 2011 of study of media consolidation across print, television, radio and the Internet. Just 24 companies are listed, but the assets owned number in the hundreds. A chapter on the topic in Censored 2006 by Bridget Thornton, Britt Walters and Lori Rouse, “Corporate Media is Corporate America” noted the massive overlap of individuals who sit on the boards at major media outlets and those of non-media corporations. Throw in the new social media giants: Google, Facebook and Amazon — or Internet domain name system megaopolies ICANN and Verisign — and the same pervasive trend towards consolidation and liberal politics emerges. these outlets seem to almost universally seem to agree on certain issues: Open borders, bailing out banks, expanding trade agreements beyond what we already have, global warming, gun control, abortion and government as the solution. All of the airwaves singing with one voice. Isn’t that nice? Then imagine what might happen if the water company could just turn off the water to dissidents.
PragerU believes YouTube to be censoring these 21 videos, according to a press release from PragerU. 10. Who NOT to Vote For Without naming parties or names, this video talks about what one should keep in mind when heading to the ballot box. 11. Do Not Murder Out of all the 10 Commandments, one would think that “do not murder” would be the most self-explanatory of all. PragerU President Dennis Prager examines why this is not the case.
Unless our elected public officials grant them the power to rip us off, rich people have little power to force us to do anything. A lowly municipal clerk earning $50,000 a year has far more life-and-death power over us. It is that type of person to whom we must turn for permission to build a house, ply a trade, open a restaurant and do myriad other activities. It's government people, not rich people, who have the power to coerce us and rip us off. They have the power to make our lives miserable if we disobey. This coercive power goes a long way toward explaining legalized political corruption.
three of the nation’s leading experts on the Second Amendment: David Clarke Jr., Milwaukee County sheriff; John Lott Jr., president of the Crime Prevention Research Center (Lott will be signing copies of his latest book “The War on Guns: Arming Yourself Against Gun Control Lies,” which will be available for sale); and Nelson Lund, university professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University (whose latest paper for Heritage on this topic can be found here).
Giuliani elaborated during his appearance on Fox News the next morning. "Terry vs. The United States is the law of the land by the Supreme Court of the United States. It has never been reversed and we do stop-and-frisk in New York and all over America." The law was "unconstitutional as applied" in one case, in other words, "It was being done incorrectly." That case was later thrown out, the former mayor said. "What I'm offended by is Lester Holt interfering twice in the debate, saying stop-and-frisk is not constitutional. Dead wrong. Hillary Clinton said the same thing. Dead wrong. Terry against the United States. Go read it. Written in 1958." Giuliani excused Clinton on the issue "because she failed the bar exam." Holt is not a lawyer, but Giuliani is, and he said, "I'm not going to allow him to play lawyer and contradict our candidate."
Hillary Clinton says she believe in community policing. At the first Presidential debate she defended the practice in major cities by claiming “crime has continued to drop, including murders.” First, violent crime in major cities is not on the decline and second, she immediately discusses limiting community control over policing, no. Here is the real Clinton fact check. The FBI 2015 violent crime analysis actually says that “In 2015, the estimated number of murders in the nation was 15,696. This was a 10.8 percent increase from the 2014 estimate, a 7.1 percent increase from the 2011 figure.” While Clinton lead the audience to believe violent crime was decreasing, in reality the worst kinds are still on the rise. Clintons misguidance on violent crime is much worse than just that though, in 2016 the problem will only grow with major cities still being neglected. Half of the total violent crime increases is driven by just two cities, Los Angeles and Chicago.. Yet her and the Obama administration have removed all power from local police to the Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department and transformed a problem for individual cities into a national epidemic which a national solution cannot cure. While Clinton hails the success of local police, she also seems to be choking them of their ability to serve their own people.
To be certain, since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) went into effect in 1994, about 5 million manufacturing jobs have been lost nationwide according to data compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. To be fair it didn’t happen all at once — most of the losses happened after the dotcom bubble popped at the end of the 1990s and after the financial crisis in 2008. Now, it is certainly debatable whether NAFTA bears all the blame. Trump also cites China’s entry into the World Trade Organization in 2000 and Congress granting permanent normal trade relations with Beijing in 2000. Clinton akin to Marie Antoinette’s supposed saying, “Let them eat cake.”
Trump insulted a Gold Star family? Clinton is being sued by two Gold Star families for defamation of character. Trump claims he was against the Iraq War despite saying, “Yeah, I guess so,” on The Howard Stern Show? In 2008, Clinton claimed she was against the Iraq War despite voting for it. Trump wrote negative tweets about 258 people and organizations on Twitter? Clinton derided 40 million Americans as deplorable, irredeemable, and anti-American. The Trump Foundation gave a suspicious donation to a judge? The Clinton Foundation received donations from Saudi Arabia and Boeing as Hillary Clinton was approving a weapons deal of Boeing fighter jets to Saudi Arabia. These jets were used to kill thousands of Yemeni civilians.
Hillary Clinton is manifestly unfit to be president of the United States. Here are 200 reasons why.
A Texas court is expected to make a decision before New Year’s Day on one of President Obama’s newest transgender mandates, which would require doctors to provide transgender treatment for kids who desire it. That treatment would be required under Obama’s federal rule even if the physician is convinced it would harm the child. The case was brought by the Becket Fund on behalf of the Christian Medical & Dental Associations, the Franciscan Alliance and the states of Texas, Kansas, Kentucky, Nebraska and Wisconsin. Another case on the issue also has been filed on behalf of the Religious Sisters of Mercy, Sacred Heart Mercy Health Care Center in Jackson, Minnesota; Sacred Heart Mercy Health Care Center in Alma, Mississippi; SMP Health System; the University of Mary; and North Dakota. We made the argument that it’s incredibly improper for the government to invade the important doctor-patient relationship, and it shouldn’t be mandating doctors to perform procedures against their best medical judgement,” said Mark Rienzi, senior counsel at Becket Law. “Personal medical decisions about the welfare of a child should be free from political agendas and interference by bureaucrats.” The organization explained that the new rule is to apply to more than 900,000 physicians – nearly every doctor in the U.S. And it would cost health-care providers nearly $1 billion – even though government experts say its own Medicare and Medicaid programs will not cover in even for adults because they believe “clinical literature is ‘inconclusive’ on whether gender reassignment surgery improves health outcomes for Medicare beneficiaries with gender dysphoria.” Some studies, in fact, warn of harm, the organization reported. “Yet any doctor relying on the same research or their own medical judgment would be in violation of the new regulation and face potential lawsuits or job loss,” Becket said. The organization cites a transgender information website that reports “up to 94 percent of children with gender dysphoria (77 to 94 percent in one set of studies and 73 to 88 percent in another) will grow out of their dysphoria naturally and live healthy lives without the need for surgery or lifelong hormone regimens.”
( businesses are going to lose a ton of real customers if they don’t change the way complaints are handled. The complainer should come in person with receipts or credit card statements showing they do business with you and have an in person head count of verified complainers, otherwise what is stopping competitors from starting an anonymous campaign to hurt another competitor sales by angering their real customer base?) The anonymous Twitter user, known as Sleeping Giants, is attempting to take down Breitbart News. It takes screenshots of advertisements on Breitbart and then harasses companies that own the ads, demanding that they blacklist the news site. And several high-profile U.S. companies are taking the bait. Ironically, while Sleeping Giants accuses Breitbart of being a “racist” site, the Twitter account features raised black fists that resemble those used in 1969 posters of the Black Panther Party. A similar fist, though typically white, was used to symbolize white power, and another red version represented leftist Autonnomist Marxism. Sleeping Giants, a new Twitter handle that was launched in November, offers this description of its activities: “We are trying to stop racist websites by stopping their ad dollars “Breitbart News is the largest platform for pro-family content anywhere on the Internet. We are fearless advocates for traditional American values, perhaps most important among them is freedom of speech, or our motto ‘more voices, not less.’ For Kellogg’s, an American brand, to blacklist Breitbart News in order to placate left-wing totalitarians is a disgraceful act of cowardice. They insult our incredibly diverse staff and spit in the face of our 45,000,000 highly engaged, highly perceptive, highly loyal readers, many of whom are Kellogg’s customers.
“The court made clear that the Obama administration’s unlawful actions put children at risk and that it cannot unilaterally disregard and redefine federal law to accomplish its political agenda of forcing girls to share locker rooms and showers with boys. Schools have a duty to protect the privacy, safety, and dignity of all students, and this order ensures that they may continue to fulfill that duty.” Federal agencies had argued that schools that failed to abide by their new definition of “sex” could be subject to loss of federal funding. WND reported at the time the judge’s order was a major blow to Obama’s alternative-sexual-behaviors agenda.
Sixty-four percent agree with the president that it should be a state and local decision. And considering the feelings of girls like teenager Sarah Harrington, it’s no wonder. “When my school district made the decision to allow boys in the girls’ locker room and shower area, it made me feel that my rights didn’t matter. I should have a choice when a boy is in the room when I undress. There are sensitive accommodations for those who are struggling with these issues that respect the privacy, dignity, and well-being of all students, because every student matters. It’s common sense: Boys don’t belong in locker rooms or shower areas with girls.” The New York Times insists the president didn’t live up to his promise to LGBT activists. But Trump’s promise was this: “I am determined to protect the rights of all Americans.” That includes Sarah Harrington and her friends. Or Kaeley Haver Triller and the thousands of other victims of abuse. She was sexually assaulted repeatedly in a shower as a child, and when she brought up her concerns about opening up locker rooms and bathrooms to both genders, she was told to “educate herself.” “As though reading a book or attending a seminar would somehow miraculously make it less dangerous for grown men to have unrestricted access to naked children or any less harmful for women to be told their needs don’t matter. Where was their education about the effects of sexual trauma or the manipulation of predators? It seemed to me that if they had experienced the same sobering education I did, then maybe this conversation would not be happening.” I challenge anyone to listen to Kaeley’s story (below) and not be profoundly moved by the threat these policies pose. The only thing that’s “thoughtless, cruel, and sad” is ignoring real-life suffering like Kaeley’s to pursue a flawed version of “tolerance.” Bullying is a serious issue. But so is safety. And there’s a way for states to address both that doesn’t put more children at risk.
the nation's most troublesome and dangerous cities, which are also cities with low-performing and unsafe schools and poor-quality city services, have been run by Democrats for nearly a half-century -- with blacks having significant political power, having been mayors, city councilors and other top officials, such as superintendents of schools and chiefs of police. Panic among some blacks over the upcoming Trump presidency is unwarranted. Whoever is the president has little or no impact on the living conditions of ordinary black people, even when that president is a black person, as the Obama presidency has demonstrated. The overall welfare of black people requires attention to devastating problems that can be solved only at the family and community levels. Mountains of evidence demonstrates that outcomes are not favorable for children raised in female-headed households. Criminal behavior is greater, and academic achievement is much less for such children. This is a devastating problem, but it is beyond the reach of a president or any other politician to solve. If there is a solution, it will come from churches and local community organizations. Education is vital to upward mobility.
The sorry and tragic state of black education is not going to be turned around until there's a change in what's acceptable and unacceptable behavior by young people. Using 2012 data from the FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Program, Law Street Media offers some sobering statistics in an article titled "Crime in America: Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities Over 200,000" (http://tinyurl.com/qeusjj4). The nation's most dangerous big cities are Detroit, Oakland, St. Louis, Memphis, Stockton, Birmingham, Baltimore, Cleveland, Atlanta and Milwaukee. The most common characteristic of these cities is that they have predominantly black populations. Another common characteristic is that for decades, all of them have been run by Democratic and presumably liberal administrations. Some cities -- such as Detroit, Buffalo, Newark and Philadelphia -- haven't elected a Republican mayor for more than a half-century. What will matter is an unyielding black intolerance for crime, along with a willingness to allow policing authorities to do what is necessary to stop criminals from preying on the overwhelmingly law-abiding people of the community.
the absolute horrific racist attack on a developmentally disabled (white) man in Chicago (by 4 blacks-2 female 2 males) is the latest example of the collapsing of the civil society in Chicago under Democratic policies. Where’s President Obama, Loretta Lynch, or the civil rights division on this? Why aren’t they speaking out?
In Roman ruler Julius Caesar’s account of the Gallic Wars, written in the ancient manuscript Commentarii de Bello Gallico, he describes the principle of “murum aries attigit” – which states that a soon-to-be-conquered city would be offered conditions of surrender by the Romans, but only “before the battering-ram should touch the wall.” And, should it touch the wall, no longer would such mercy would be shown, and only total devastation would follow. The doctrine was meant to foster a diplomatic resolution by dissuading further hostilities with the very real threat of no alternative but death. In recent years the Russian government, under Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, has adopted a similar doctrine in its response to Islamic terrorism. Such a heavy-handed response to a terrorism is utterly unthinkable in Obama World. While Putin has adopted the murum aries attigit doctrine against terrorism, Obama has opted instead for a policy that virtually ignores the very existence of Islamic terrorism. How Russia is likely to respond to this week’s assassination of its Ambassador to Turkey, compared to America’s own (non)responses to recent acts of terrorism, including its own assassinated Ambassador to Libya in 2012, presents a stark contrast in leadership in the post-911 world.
What are we to make of higher education when students and institutions respond to the recent presidential election with cry-ins, canceled exams, therapy dogs, Play-Doh, coloring books, group screams, Legos, bubble-blowing, and trauma counseling? The result is not just a poorly educated student body, but an infantilized one. Mature discourse is out, and fragility, dependence, and bad temper is in. Rather than cultivate habits of sustained and sober thought, we encourage manufactured outrage and self-indulgent victimhood. Anyone who has spent time with 2-year-olds recognizes the behavior. In our case, however, we appear to cultivate it on our campuses. An infantilized campus is bad enough, but it becomes intolerable when these are the places where leaders of a self-governing republic are usually formed. Regardless of party or position, a citizenry incapable of facing adversity or unwilling to reason about and discuss difficult, public things will not likely produce leaders who can do so. If college campuses steep our future leaders in habits of entitled fragility, the only politics they will be able to imagine is that of the tantrum. Tellingly, this is exactly the kind of politics we have seen on campus, and, increasingly, off campus as well. A darker view would regard our infantilized campuses as something more sinister than the accidental byproduct of politicized higher education. If we cannot restore the “higher” to higher education, if we cannot put down our Play-Doh and take up our Plato, it’s unlikely we’ll see a return of either to our politics or our learning.
(Why can’t we have choices? let the young people get their own insurance and if parents/grandparents want to pay for it they can up to whatever age the parent/grandparent decides, otherwise let the young people pay for it instead of having more money for vices or toys) the hidden costs of the millennial mandate: the cultural consequences. All this "free" stuff, detached from those actually paying the bills, reduces the incentives for 20-somethings to grow up and seek independent lives and livelihoods. Why bother? The societal sanctions have been eroded. Now, the nation is suffering the consequences of decades of that collective coddling. Precious snowflakes can't handle rejection at the ballot box or responsibilities in the marketplace. Appropriately enough, the new virtue signals of tantrum-throwing young leftists stirring up trouble are safety pins -- to show "solidarity" with groups supposedly endangered by Donald Trump. Safety pins are also handy -- for holding up the government-manufactured diapers in which too many overgrown dependents are swaddled.
If Keynesian economics (government spending to jumpstart the economy) actually worked, the last eight years should've been an economic blockbuster. And isn't it interesting -- and hypocritical -- that when China fiddles with its interest rates and money supply, it's "currency manipulation." When we do it, it's "quantitative easing." The one sure way to reduce the size and scope of lobbying is to reduce the size and scope of government. The only way to eliminate lobbyists and "special interests" is to reduce the federal government's footprint, giving them nothing to lobby about. It's not enough to win. Trump must succeed. Populism is good politics, but bad economics.
A spokesman for the Navy confirmed the craft was the E-6B Mercury, also known as the “Doomsday Plane.” The U.S. military owns 16 so-called “doomsday planes,” a powerful aircraft that holds the capability to launch nuclear missiles. It was designed to serve as a flying command center in the event of a nuclear war.
The U.S. and Canada shares the world's longest border, about 5,500 miles (including Alaska). This long border crosses many sparsely populated terrains and wilderness areas, including mountains and the great lakes. Many sections of the border are unmarked and our current resources for border patrolling are grossly inadequate. Prior to 9/11, only about 340 federal agents patrolled our northern border with Canada. Since then, the Department of Homeland Security increased the number of agents dedicated to our northern border to about 2,200, which still pales in comparison to the 18,600 agents along the U.S. and Mexico border. Technologies such as radar, ground sensors and thermal radiation detectors are also deployed. They are helpful, but insufficient. According to a recent New York Times report, "In 2007, people from the Government Accountability Office managed to cross from Canada into the United States carrying a duffel bag with contents that looked like radioactive material, and they never encountered a law enforcement officer." Federal border patrol agents admitted to the same Times reporter that they simply have no idea how many people illegally enter into U.S. through the northern borders every day.
U.S. charities celebrate the values that founded this nation. Those values include individual freedom, self-reliance, equality of opportunity, competition, and hard work, to name a few. To compile this list of Newsmax’s Top 50 Charities That Celebrate American Values, our editors combed through reputable online resources such as Charity Navigator, GreatNonprofits, and Philanthropedia. We also consulted with several well-connected nonprofit professionals.
The credentials of this supposed group of experts are impossible to verify, as none is provided either by the Post or by the group itself. The Washington Post should be very proud: It staked a major part of its news story on the unverified, untestable assertions of this laughable organization. an anonymous website calling itself PropOrNot this cowardly group of anonymous smear artists, promoted by the Washington Post As is so often the case, those who mostly loudly warn of “fake news” from others are themselves the most aggressive disseminators of it. Indeed, what happened here is the essence of fake news.
The death of Fidel Castro reminds us that the “respectable” press, the "two-sources" press, the press that enforces standards and performs reality checks and practices "shoe leather" journalism and all that, has been peddling "fake news" about Cuba and Castro for 60 years. The mainstream press has been soft on Fidel Castro since he first grabbed a pistol and started granting interviews to credulous reporters in the Sierra Maestra. The joke that made the rounds in 1980s was that Castro could have been featured in one of those ads boasting "I got my job through The New York Times!" Starting in 1957, Times reporter Herbert Matthews visited with the rebel leader and published accounts of his selfless commitment to "his" people. "Power does not interest me," Castro told Matthews. "After victory I want to go back to my village and just be a lawyer again." The evidence of Castro's monstrousness was available more or less immediately after his victory. Fulgencio Batista's supporters were shot en masse -- some in a carnival atmosphere in front of stadiums of people making the "thumbs down" gesture. Former revolutionary allies were next to mount the scaffold for the modern equivalent of the guillotine. Independent newspapers were closed. Unions were forbidden to strike. Religious colleges were closed, and priests were forced into exile (they had plenty of company). Those who resisted the regime were arrested, denied medical care and sometimes tortured. Their families were harassed. Castro promised free elections within 18 months. That was 708 months ago. Cubans are still waiting. Stories about neighborhood spies, beatings and jailings of the Ladies in White, shortages of all basic commodities (yes, even sugar and cigars), forced labor and the rest of the miseries that a despotic government can inflict were hard to find. There are actually three health services in Cuba. There is one for tourists, featuring state-of-the-art equipment. There is a second for high-ranking communists, the military, approved artists and so forth. This, too, is a good system. And then there is the squalid, dirty, understaffed, massively under-equipped medical system that ordinary Cubans (the vast majority) must endure. In the third system, overworked doctors reuse latex gloves, antibiotics are scarce, and patients must "bring their own bed sheets, soap, towels, food, light bulbs -- even toilet paper."
I didn’t live under the Castro regime, nor did I have family murdered during his reign. But Havana-born writer Humberto Fontova did! In an article for FaithWire Fontova writes, “Fidel Castro jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin during the Great Terror. He murdered more Cubans in his first three years in power than Hitler murdered Germans during his first six.” — FaithWire.com Seriously, let that comment sink in for a moment. No reporter, politician, or entertainer would praise Adolph Hitler the day he died for being a great leader. Their career would be over. But liberals and leftist lauded the Cuban dictator with words like great, awesome, and inspiring. By January 1959, Castro and his henchmen Che Guevara began filming executions of dissidents for the media shock value. See Video — WARNING! GRAPHIC CONTENT! One of the most notable executions was that of American businessman Howard Anderson. Anderson was accused of helping anti-communist during the Bay of Pigs invasion. His real crime, however, he refused to allow Castro to take over businesses. Even the Kennedy Whitehouse condemned the murderous action by noting Anderson didn’t receive a fair trial. A Swiss diplomat who witnessed the kangaroo court remarked that the prosecutor acted like a “madman” and that no evidence was presented; just accusations.
Anderson was tortured continually during his incarceration. And just days before he was murdered at the hands of a firing squad, Castor’s agents, in one last vicious act drained his body of blood to the point of death. Quoting again Humberto Fontova, “Fidel Castro shattered — through mass-executions, mass-jailings, mass larceny and exile — virtually every family on the island of Cuba. Many opponents of the Castro regime qualify as the longest-suffering political prisoners in modern history, having suffered prison camps, forced labor and torture chambers for a period three times as long in Fidel Castro’s Gulag as Alexander Solzhenitsyn suffered in Stalin’s Gulag.” — Ibid. Fontova continues, “According to the scholars and researchers at the Cuba Archive, the Castro regime’s total death toll–from torture, prison beatings, firing squads, machine gunning of escapees, drownings, etc.–approaches 100,000. Cuba’s population in 1960 was 6.4 million. According to the human rights group Freedom House, 500,000 Cubans (young and old, male and female) have passed through Castro’s prison and forced-labor camps. This puts Fidel Castro political incarceration rate right up there with his hero Stalin’s.” — ibid.
The liberal outpouring of grief for Fidel Castro is both disgusting and disrespectful to me and to the millions of other Cuban-Americans whose lives were uprooted by the communist strongman today’s liberals seem infatuated with. The man was a Monster in the same vein as Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong, Benito Mussolini, the Khmer Rouge, Idi Amin, and every other dictator whom liberals have pretended to detest.
Castro destroyed a thriving society and imposed penury, either out of Marxist dogma or out of resentment that his out-of-wedlock birth had left him with a stigma among Cuba’s middle classes. Cuba had problems in 1958, as many societies do. But on a number of fronts, it was the lead country in Latin America, or among the very top. Its social indicators were not just ahead of Asia and Africa, but also ahead of many European countries. Many Europeans, including half of all my great-grandparents, immigrated to Cuba in the 20th century—barely a century ago—seeking to improve their lives economically. They did, and their granddaughter, my mother, went to law school. A study by the State Department’s Hugo Llorens and Kirby Smith shows, for example, that in infant mortality, literacy rates, per capita food consumption, passenger cars per capita, number of telephones, radios, televisions, and many other indicators, Cuba led when Castro took over on New Year’s Eve 1958. And today? Castro’s communism has not just left Cubans economically pauperized, but politically bereft, a situation that Obama’s unilateral concessions to Castro’s little brother, the 85-year-old Raul, Cuba’s present leader, has only made worse. Trump’s statement on the “brutal dictator” Castro has been the moral one and the one closest to the mark: “Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.” Today, therefore, will be a day for clarity. What world leaders ( media & educators) say about the departed tyrant will reveal whether they have an inner moral compass or not.
A longtime bodyguard of the late Fidel Castro chronicled the Cuban dictator's life of luxury and ladies as the country starved, the N.Y. Post reported Sunday. "While his people suffered, Fidel Castro lived in comfort – keeping everything, including his eight children, his many mistresses, even his wife, a secret,” former bodyguard Juan Reinaldo Sanchez wrote, per the Post, in the book "The Double Life of Fidel Castro: My 17 Years as Personal Bodyguard to El Líder Maximo."
What were Castro's great achievements? He presided over the economic destruction of one of the most quickly developing countries in Latin America; he arrested and imprisoned hundreds of thousands of dissidents; he caused the self-imposed exile of millions of Cubans; he watched and participated in the drowning of thousands of Cubans attempting to escape his prison island; he worked with mass murderer Che Guevara to murder political opponents. Castro was, simply put, one of the worst people in a century full of awful human beings. So why did the left emerge to pay its respects this week? Because at least Castro sought utopia. Radical leftism believes that the quest for a utopian world, a world free of unfairness, justifies any cruelty against individuals. Individual rights are obstacles to communal greatness. And Hollywood even portrayed Stalin's show trials in a positive light in "Mission to Moscow." Today, Hollywood produces fawning biopics like "Che" (directed by Steven Soderbergh) and "The Motorcycle Diaries" (produced by Robert Redford), and The New York Times titled its obituary for Castro, "A Revolutionary Who Defied the U.S. And Held Cuba in His Thrall." Dictators everywhere are safe so long as leftism reigns. And leftism will continue to reign so long as men dream of a collective heaven on Earth rather than of individual rights protected from such utopian totalitarians.
Once the federal month that follows the refugees runs out, Oakland County taxpayers are left holding the bag for the education and welfare of the refugees. Simpson, author of the 2015 book “The Red-Green Axis: Refugees, Immigration and the Agenda to Erase America.” Simpson’s book, published by Center for Security Policy, exposes both secular and church groups working as paid government resettlement contractors and provides data on the costs of the resettlement program. Oakland County, along with Wayne and Macomb counties, has been on the receiving end more than 7,000 Muslim refugees from Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Bosnia and elsewhere over the past 20 years. The Islamization has been so intense that many local opponents have started referring to Dearborn as “Dearbornistan” and Hamtramck as “Shariahville” Simpson has often called the refugee resettlement program a scam that hides under the guise of humanitarian goodness when in actuality it’s about making money and changing political demographics in favor of Democrats and socialists
5. People on the right think that most people on the left are wrong; people on the left think that most people on the right are evil. Decades of labeling conservative positions as "hateful" and labeling conservative individuals as "sexist," "intolerant," "xenophobic," "homophobic," "racist" and "bigoted" have had their desired effect.
6. The left associates human decency not so much with personal integrity as with having correct -- i.e. progressive -- political positions. Therefore, if you don't hold progressive positions, you lack decency. Ask your left-wing friends if they'd rather their high school son or daughter cheat on tests or support Trump.
7. Most individuals on the left are irreligious, so the commandment "Honor your father and your mother" means nothing to those who have cut off relations with parents because they voted for Trump.
9. The left tends toward the totalitarian. And every totalitarian ideology seeks to weaken the bonds between children and parents. The left seeks to dilute parental authority and replace it with school authority and government authority. So when your children sever their bond with you because you voted for Trump, they are acting like the good totalitarians the left has molded.
The initiative is called “Safe Genes” – a program designed to counteract gene-drive systems currently being developed to override the standard rules of gene inheritance and natural selection. The danger, scientists recognize, is that without a backup plan, a gene drive released into nature could spread or change in unexpected ways with potentially disastrous effects.
Columbus is home to the second largest community of Somali refugees after Minneapolis. More than 99 percent of Somali refugees are Sunni Muslims. In all, the U.S. government has imported more than 132,000 Somali Muslim refugees and distributed them into more than 300 U.S. cities and towns. More than 40 Somalis living in America have left the country since 2007 to fight for terrorist organizations, including the Islamic State, al-Qaida and al-Shabab, according to FBI reports. Dozens of others have been tried and convicted of providing material support to overseas terrorist organizations.
(Science can be funded privately! Taxpayer funds should be spent with extreme carefulness) Also featured prominently in the museum is the wreck of a British slave ship, the Henrietta Marie. It sank in a hurricane off Key West in 1700, after leaving 190 Africans in Jamaica, to be sold as slaves. As Fisher divers excavated the Henrietta wreck, at 40 feet below the sea surface they found – not just leg shackles and other grim artifacts from that horrific era – but charred tree branches, pine cones and other remnants from a forest fire 8,400 years ago! The still resinous smelling fragments demonstrate that this area (like all other coastal regions worldwide) was well above sea level, before the last ice age ended and melting glaciers slowly raised oceans to their current level: 400 feet higher than during the frigid Pleistocene, when an enormous portion of Earth’s seawater was locked up in glaciers. Climate change has clearly been “real” throughout earth and human history. The question is, exactly how and how much do today’s human activities affect local, regional or global climate and weather? climate chaos scientists who’ve relied on the $$$$$$multi-billion-dollar government (taxpayer) gravy train are distraught over the prospect that President Donald Trump will slash their budgets or terminate their CO2-centric research. government grants must not go preferentially to researchers who seek to further CO2-centrism, but rather to those who are committed to a broader scope of solid, dispassionate research that examines both natural and manmade factors. Grant recipients must also agree to engage in robust discussion and debate, to explain and defend their data, methodologies, analyses and conclusions. Speedier, more powerful computers simply make any “garbage in-garbage out” calculations, analyses and predictions occur much more quickly – facilitating faster faulty forecasts … and policy recommendations.
Global Warming is nothing but a myth perpetuated by fake statistics and studies for the sake of greed, power and control.

The large, ‘wrinkly’ area south of Hermannsburg is the Krichauff Range, and surprisingly, the Finke River flows right through that range. The flat area to the south-west of the image is Palm Valley, which is popular with tourists. The most remarkable feature here is that the river flows directly through the mountain range, rather than around it as would be expected. This phenomenon provides graphic evidence for the reality of Noah’s Flood, which elegantly explains how it happened. how a mostly-dry, intermittent, river like the Finke could carve its way through high mountain ranges.
Wise words will win a campaign and foolish words will destroy a campaign – I’m not telling you anything you don’t know – and so it makes sense to see what God has to say about the words we speak. I’m talking about the Book of Proverbs, which actually states that, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits” (Prov. 18:21). So, here’s my counsel: Start every day by reading one chapter from Proverbs out loud, together with your closet staff or family or advisers, if possible. Then note what Proverbs says about wise people and fools, examine your conduct and your words in light of what you read, and then ask God for wisdom. Proverbs 12:16 says, “Fools show their annoyance at once, but the prudent overlook an insult” (Prov. 12:16, NIV). Proverbs 15:1 says, “A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” Proverbs 17:27 says, “Whoever restrains his words has knowledge, and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding.”
You could have tweeted out, “As a fellow-American, I mourn the loss of Mr. and Mrs. Khan, I celebrate their son’s sacrifice, & I call on them to stand with me in fighting radical Islam.” And if you wanted to add (with a smile), “And thanks for the offer of a copy of the Constitution, but I have a few copies myself, and we agree it’s a great document.” You can be strong, decisive, forceful, and persuasive without making a fool out of yourself in the process. Why give your opponents free ammunition?
Learn to live by the wisdom of Proverbs, and you’ll make a great president. Scorn it, and you’ll only have regret.

There is NO GREATER SIN for a Christian than to stand idly by, not cast their vote, and allow the mass slaughter of MILLIONS more lives. To not vote IS to vote. This Presidential election is pivotal. It is a clear decision between the opportunity to press pause on the blatant corruption and demise of our country versus pompous unadulterated evil. We are facing a do or die moment for the principles that America rests upon. Hillary was very open that she will stack the Supreme Court with Justices who will see things as she sees them. There is no greater sin then to sit on your vote and WILLFULLY allow this demon influenced person to take office.
The Media Research Center has done America a tremendous service. In 2014 the watchdog organization released a video of an actual partial birth abortion — something Hillary Clinton stood on stage during the final presidential debate, stared into the camera with cold, callous eyes, and then both lied about and defended unequivocally. I plead with Never Trumpers to watch the video and then prayerfully reassess their plans for Nov. 8.
Coretta Scott King praised the nation’s leading eugenicist, Margaret Sanger, the founder of the leading killer of unarmed black lives--Planned Parenthood. Before accepting the 1966 inaugural Margaret Sanger award on behalf of her husband, Martin Luther King Jr., Coretta said these words: "I am proud tonight to say a word in behalf of your mentor, and the person who symbolizes the ideas of this organization, Margaret Sanger. Because of her dedication, her deep convictions, and for her suffering for what she believed in, I would like to say that I am proud to be a woman tonight." Sanger, a member of the undeniably racist and elitist American Eugenics Society, espoused many vile views of humanity advocating forcibly sterilizing people (like my friend Elaine Riddick, sterilized by the Eugenics Board of North Carolina), segregating the “dysgenic” (people who were “unfit” to reproduce) onto farms for the entirety of their lives, targeting poorer blacks with birth control promising to erase poverty (it was called The Negro Project and it failed miserably), and “preventing the birth of defectives”. Those were Sanger’s words. The Mother of the Birth Control Crusade described, unapologetically, what birth control was all about in Chapter 18 of her book, Women And The New Race: These words made Coretta Scott King “proud to be a woman”? Really? Or, how about Sanger’s view of immigrants? The Planned Parenthood founder lobbied adamantly against allowing the legal immigration of those who didn’t fit into her eugenicist mission: “Keep the doors of Immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feeble-minded, idiots, morons, insane, syphilitic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes, and others in this class barred by the immigration laws of 1924.” Oh, but it didn’t stop there. Sanger continued: “Apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization, and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring. The whole dysgenic population would have its choice of segregation or sterilization.” She called this her “Plan for Peace”.
Speaking at an LGBT conference—Creating Change in 2000—Coretta Scott King showed the blatant hypocrisy of a leftist movement that selectively fights discrimination and inequality
AFA Action has developed a guide on how Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump differ on issues like judges, national security, and the 2nd Amendment. AFA Action is the governmental affairs affiliate of AFA, dedicated to urging Christians to strengthen the biblical foundations of America. Also included with the AFA Action comparison guide is how the Republican and Democratic parties differ on 10 key issues like religious liberty, Planned Parenthood, Iran and school choice.

You and many other “holier than God” Christian people are being played by the Establishment to suppress the Evangelical vote in order for Clinton to win the presidency. Do you not see this? I am afraid if you were living in the time of Cyrus, King of Persia (559–530 BC), you would not approve of Cyrus being used by God to promote the covenant religion and the restoration of Israel. Your “sin meter” would have detected too much improper behavior and lifestyle in Cyrus and you would have worked against his campaign to send God’s people back to Jerusalem to rebuild the temple and city walls. You would have been blogging to the saints exposing Cyrus’ multiple wives, concubines, treatment of women, idol worship, and builder of pagan temples. You and your following would have been left in Babylon resisting God’s great plan to bring His people back and to renew the nation and restore the worship of God. All because the vessel God had chosen in Cyrus was not acceptable to you and your self-styled religious standards. God called Cyrus “His Anointed” (Isaiah 45:1) who did a great work for God and His people (Ezra 1:1–4), but you would have called him the “chief of sinners.” After you complete your work to defeat Trump may I suggest that you start your new project to re-write Christ’s lineage in Matthew 1. For as you know that list is filled with way too many unacceptable sinners. The lineage starts with polygamists, a prostitute, a user of prostitutes, an owner of a house of prostitution, two pagans, a murderer, and two adulterers. Then comes King Solomon with 700 wives and 300 concubines. This is all in the first 15 generations, no time for the remaining 27. Be not mistaken, I am not making light of sin. I, like you, am a lover of God’s Holy Law as a standard for all men. In no way do I write to excuse sinful behavior but I am attempting to understand the human condition in light of God’s providence. But, don’t use His Law to limit God and override His providence and plan. God works through time and history on behalf of his people and often uses very imperfect men to accomplish his plan. The Carter/Trump comparison is an excellent example of the two-fold nature of a man’s character. Jimmy Carter was the first well-known “born again” Christian in our modern era to run for the presidency yet was one of the worst presidents.
(Bill Clinton’s Big, Democrap Govt Housing bomb, CRA, HUD and BJ’s National Homeownership Strategy & Interagency Task Force on Fair Lending , plus FAS 157 rule & mark to market) Trump is right. As an investor, you wait for the day that assets plummet in value, under duress, from a crisis, and that is when you buy. Clinton operates on a much different philosophy. At the surface, it may appear that she's appealing to the majority of Americans who buy when prices are high and sell when prices are low, then wonder why they never amass any wealth, regardless of their income. the type of experience we need managing our country’s finances. As a country, we are ‘buying high and selling low,’ and it must stop now. Most people who lost their homes paid too much, borrowed too much, use their home as a piggy bank and expected market appreciation to correct their financial stupidity.
The first is education. The schools in the inner city are, by and large, an expensive joke. The solution is simple and offering it will cause just as much controversy and gather just as many votes as “I Will Build A Wall” did: “Every African-American Child In A Private School.” You should declare that you will allow no federal education money to flow to any district of any state that does not allow the free and easy chartering of private schools and the free enrollment of minority children in them with their tuition paid at something like two-thirds the rate public schools are funded. Further, these new free academies must have total authority to hire and fire whom they want and decide what to teach. A simple six point program:
- Chicago police are required when making a stop to fill out an ACLU-crafted form so their stops can be analyzed, and officers disciplined, for racial profiling. As a result police stops have dropped from over 100,000 a year to 30,000. Trump should demand that Chicago tear up this form and order the U.S. attorney to make sure they can do so.
- The most successful method of getting guns off the street quickly is Stop-And-Frisk. The ACLU doesn’t like that either, and federal courts agree with them. But Congress can refuse to allow federal courts to rule on this issue, and Trump should demand that it does so.
- Parolees account for an enormous amount of crime in New York and Illinois and elsewhere. Demand that states abolish parole and start suing those who don’t.
- Implement Project Exile, a program in which anybody committing a crime with a gun does an automatic five years in a federal prison far away from their home turf. This worked before in Northern Virginia and will work again elsewhere.
- Provide federal “Snitch Money.” Allow police officers with no reference to higher authority to pay small cash rewards to street people who provide information that leads to the seizure of a handgun or automatic in the hands of a minor or felon.
- Craft (hat-tip Little Bobby) a National Police Officers Bill of Rights, designed to get police officers back into pro-active policing and designed to provide officers acting in good faith with protections from malicious prosecution and frivolous lawsuits.
Education and crime. Two issues the Democrats and Hillary Clinton have kicked into the weeds which if dragged out might get everybody in the African-American community listening, “ears on” as we used to say. Do it, Donald – shake inner city education right down to its foundations, beat the gangs, carry the election, ensure the future of millions of minority children while saving the lives of thousands of innocent American children and mothers.
He was right to say that his opponent and her party have had decades to repair the racial divide (which President Obama suggested he would do), but that chasm has only widened over the last eight years. Real racism, Trump should say, is refusing to allow minority children in failing public schools to escape them in favor of better ones simply because many teachers' unions oppose school choice and contribute significantly to the Democratic Party. Trump should take on the issue of poverty and propose a public-private partnership with churches and religious institutions that would be assigned an individual in need of help. These churches then would do all that was necessary to help that person escape poverty, including offering financial advice, access to education or even baby-sitting services so that this person could go to school. Retiring baby boomers could find new purpose in life by helping someone become independent of government programs, which have cost a lot, but have done little to reduce the number of poor. Trump should ask Hillary Clinton why she thinks government is the answer to so many of the nation's problems when in reality it has too often caused or contributed to this country's ills. She wants to grow government even more, spending additional billions in borrowed money, mortgaging the futures of generations to come. Remember when Democrats decried debt? Americans are inspired by stories of people who have overcome obstacles and Trump should not only tell their stories, he should start featuring them in his political ads and on stage with him -- as he has done with veterans. Inspiration has always been the fuel that ignites economic and personal growth.
An article on News Forum for Lawyers titled "Study Finds College Students Remarkably Incompetent" cites a study done by the American Institutes for Research that revealed that over 75 percent of two-year college students and 50 percent of four-year college students were incapable of completing everyday tasks. About 20 percent of four-year college students demonstrated only basic mathematical ability, while a steeper 30 percent of two-year college students could not progress past elementary arithmetic. NBC News reported that Fortune 500 companies spend about $3 billion annually to train employees in "basic English." Reported by Just Facts, in 2009, the Pentagon estimated that 65 percent of 17- to 24-year-olds in the U.S. were unqualified for military service because of weak educational skills, poor physical fitness, illegal drug usage, medical conditions or criminal records. Among high-school students who graduated in 2014 and took the ACT college readiness exam, here's how various racial/ethnic groups fared when it came to meeting the ACT's college readiness benchmarks in at least three of the four subjects: Asians, 57 percent; whites, 49 percent; Hispanics, 23 percent; and blacks, 11 percent.
According to College Board's 2015 report, the average combined SAT score for white students was 1576 out of a possible 2400. Black student SAT scores, at 1277, were the lowest of the seven reported racial groups (http://tinyurl.com/ozpkpdk). The College Board considers an SAT score of 1550 as the benchmark that indicates a readiness for college-level work. Only 32 percent of white students scored at or above proficient in math, and just 7 percent of black students did. Forty-six percent of white test takers scored proficient in reading, and 17 percent of blacks did. The ACT, another test used for admission to college, produced similar results. The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education reports, in an article titled "A Major Crisis in College Readiness for Black Students," that 34 percent of whites who took the ACT were deemed college-ready in all four areas -- English, mathematics, reading and science. For blacks, it was only 6 percent (http://tinyurl.com/h6x5g8n). These are significant differences in academic preparation between white and black students. The problem of black education begins long before college. The National Assessment of Educational Progress, known as The Nation's Report Card, shows that nationally in 2015, only 7 percent of black 12th-graders scored proficient in math, and only 17 percent did so in reading. This suggests that the average black 12th-grader has the academic proficiency of a white eighth- or ninth-grader. Consider the following question: If one admits 1,000 randomly selected eighth- and ninth-graders to college and admits 1,000 randomly selected 12th-graders, who do you think is going to come out on top? Who would be surprised if the eighth- and ninth-graders felt inferiority, oppression and insensitivity?
Franklin aimed at a utilitarian education that would equip ordinary citizens for their professions, including competence in their own language. Education must be useful. The curriculum must include, he wrote in 1749, penmanship, drawing, English grammar and style, public speaking, history (with an emphasis on politics), geography, chronology, morality, natural history, and what his generation called “good breeding.” The ultimate aim of this useful education was public service to the community. Franklin wasn’t opposed to the training of classical scholars, but not everyone was destined to be a scholar, and a practical education suited to the needs of a dynamic and prosperous society could not pretend everyone was going to be an academic. Indeed, for the generation of 1787, for the culture that gave the United States its Constitution, the ancient world and its authors and their ideas mattered very much. The Greeks and Romans provided examples of success and failure, models to follow and models to avoid. If any of the Founders rejected the study of Greek and Latin, that did not mean they rejected reading the ancients in good modern translations.
By the third grade, most kids haven't taken biology -- so we shouldn't be surprised that they don't understand their own! This affects the emotional, physical and mental well-being of my daughters, with unsupervised bathrooms that have children of opposite sex." Unfazed by the uproar, Superintendent Bruce Gearing blamed the decision on the district's so-called "non-discrimination" policy (which apparently allows the schools to discriminate against the other 99.9 percent of students). We already know where Hillary Clinton stands on the matter. Back in April, her campaign was clear that, as president, she'll pick up where Obama leaves off to force this agenda on American families.
HOMESCHOOL!! if the Obama Department of Education weren't so hostile toward traditional values in their aggressive push of their agenda, it wouldn't be driving so many children out of the public classroom. Instead, families are running for the exits after the president's team put its agenda of sexual anarchy ahead of kids' safety and learning experience. As Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick (R) predicted back in the spring when the president ordered the gender free-for-all in schools and universities, "This will be the end of public education, if this prevails. People will pull their kids out, homeschooling will explode, and private schools will increase." So far, that seems to be the trend, as Americans erupt in frustration over the president's school mandate. There are at least 13 lawsuits over the edict spanning Minnesota, Wisconsin, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, and Nebraska. And that doesn't include the multi-state suit by state leaders! Fortunately, the Supreme Court seems to grasp the gravity of the situation, agreeing last week to take up the case of Virginia's Gloucester County School Board. "Girls should never be forced to undress in the presence of young men," said one of the mothers in Palatine, Illinois, where parents are also taking the Obama administration to court. "There are sensitive solutions for students that don't violate the privacy of many other students at the school. Schools will always have a duty to protect the privacy and preserve the dignity of all children, because every child matters. We hope the [Supreme] Court remembers this."

Radiocarbon does not pose a problem for the young earth position since 14C has a half-life of 5,730 years—meaning that no 14C ought to be detected in any sample that is believed to be more than about 100,000 years old. In fact, if a lump of 14C were as massive as the Earth, all of it would have decayed away in less than a million years.
The phenomenally complicated programme of cellular ‘death’, otherwise known as apoptosis, is the chief source of occupation for tens of thousands of scientific researchers. the person who subscribes to methodological naturalism faces the significant challenge of accounting for the origin and evolution of apoptosis. The alleged evolutionary conservation of apoptosis, from the ‘earliest’ eukaryotic cells, would therefore appear to be problematic on theoretical grounds. Not only must evolutionists explain how apoptosis evolved before the ‘invention’ of multicellularity, but they are faced with explaining how single cells—that have acquired a functional apoptotic response—pass on this more advantageous, advanced genetic complement to their progeny?
A well-known creation scientist from Canada, Dr Margaret Helder, wrote on the phenomenon of these allegedly unfossilized bones back in the 1990s,8 so I contacted her for her comments as well. She informed me that she had first heard about these bones in 1990 while attending a lecture by Dr Philip J. Currie, who is a renowned Canadian (secular) paleontologist and museum curator specializing in dinosaurs. According to Dr Helder, Currie stated in his lecture that the Alaskan dinosaur bones in question were not fossilized, and for that reason they were misidentified as bison bones.9 Dr Helder directed me to another source: an early article written on the Alaskan bones by Kyle L. Davies in 1987 in the Journal of Paleontology. Davies, too, used interesting language to describe the bones: The quality of preservation is remarkable. The bones are stained a dark red brown but otherwise display little permineralization, crushing, or distortion.10 Perhaps Davies, too, was afflicted with a strange desire to use ‘loose’ language, all the way back in 1987? What can account for these different scientists, over a span of nearly 30 years, describing the bones in nearly identical language?
