McMaster Targets And Terminates Trump Loyalists

Millions of Americans cannot tell you who lived at Mount Vernon or who wrote the Declaration of Independence, let alone the Emancipation Proclamation. But they know that to be a Benedict Arnold is to be a traitor of the deepest dye, someone who coldly betrays not only a sacred cause, but every moral scruple along the way. Arthur Herman

Trump loyalists are losing their jobs at the National Security Council and being replaced by those who have no allegiance whatsoever to our President’s campaign promises.  Well over fifty percent of the National Security Council staff are Obama holdovers who should have been gone over six months ago.

“It’s like the Bush years never ended,” notes one National Security Council staffer who didn’t come in under McMaster. “I didn’t sign up for this s**t and the American people didn’t vote for it.” Link

The staffer also doubts that Democrats are to blame for withholding security clearances, especially for those with ties to General Michael Flynn. The Pentagon under Secretary Mattis has been working with Senator John McCain to deny security clearances over the fictitious Russia investigation.

And, an ex-FBI agent warns that McMaster is in the enemy camp

Who Lobbied for LTG McMaster

Breitbart gave us the inside information from Jerusalem Post columnist, Caroline Glick.

Finally, there is the issue of how McMaster got there in the first place. Trump interviewed McMaster at Mara Lago for a half an hour. He was under terrible pressure after firing Flynn to find someone.

And who recommended McMaster? You won’t believe this.

Senator John McCain. That’s right. The NSA got his job on the basis of a recommendation from the man who just saved Obamacare.

Senator Tom Cotton also lobbied for McMaster having once served under him, and Defense Secretary Mattis did as well. [Link]

But the nationalists may have a competitive advantage: Trump, who already thinks McMaster is a “pain” who talks too much and has complained to aides that he wants Flynn back at the White House, is reportedly considering sending McMaster to replace Gen. John Nicholson as the top commander of American and NATO troops in Afghanistan. [Link]

John Kelly Supports McMaster

It seems that H.R. McMaster is a wolf in sheep’s clothing who is sabotaging the President’s agenda.  Remember, McMaster was caught leaking internal White House politics to now former Acting FBI Head Andy McCabe.

One would think that McMaster would shortly be out the door because he is not liked by Bannon or the President.  However, he allegedly has an ally in Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Kelly told McMaster that he wants him to remain, and actually authorized him to “make any staffing changes he wants.”  McMaster took that as a green light to oust top intelligence aide Ezra Cohen-Watnick, a Michael Flynn hire who has a warm relationship with Jared Kushner.  

In the past, McMaster attempted to rid the council of Cohen-Watnick, but was overruled by President Trump, Steve Bannon, and Jared Kushner.  Now, after months of trying, he has succeeded.

McMaster’s abhorrence of Bannon is quite obvious, as those who he’s fired were close to Bannon.  And the fact that he hired CFR and Trilateralist, Dina Habib Powell, a close friend of Valerie Jarrett and Huma Abedin, as his Deputy NSA Advisor for Security is extremely troubling.

 

 

 

 

Two separate National Security Council sources have confirmed that McMaster and Deputy NSA Dina Powell have leaked classified information at an unprecedented rate to their allies in the anti-Trump media, leading Congress to issue a report warning about its ramifications.

As for Kelly, Rush Limbaugh stated that Kelly called former FBI Director Comey when he was fired to express his anger over how Trump handled it.  Kelly allegedly told Comey he was even considering resigning over how Trump treated the former FBI director. [Link]

And… Breitbart is reporting that McMaster is frequently volatile.

Susan Rice and McMaster

Former Obama advisor, Susan Rice wanted General Flynn out, and she apparently helped make it happen.  After McMaster was selected, she tweeted to him that she hoped he could choose his staff and get rid of the Strategic Initiatives Group.  The Strategic Initiatives Group is a layer of the White House National Security Council that’s led by Mr. Bannon.  McMaster has stated that he believes Rice did not do anything wrong amid accusations of “unmasking” the identities of Trump associates.

He actually allowed Susan Rice to maintain her security clearance to access classified information, despite reservations Trump had about her motives.  McMaster sent an official secret letter to Rice informing her that she would maintain unfettered access to classified information, according to a report from Circa’s Sara Carter.

Why should Susan Rice still have a security clearance?  How is giving this known liar and power abuser access to secret data consistent with our national security?  Obviously, the NSA Director is serving an agenda that has no similarity to our President’s and is not based upon what is best for our nation.

The president was not aware of McMaster’s actions, according to two senior White House officials and an intelligence official, but obviously is by now.

McMaster Purges Trump Loyalists

Jerusalem Post columnist Caroline Glick wrote that H.R. McMaster is purging pro-Israel staff from the National Security Council and turning the administration against President Donald Trump’s policies.

Glick noted that “all of these people” whom McMaster has recently fired, Rich Higgins, Derek Harvey, and Ezra Cohen-Watnick “are pro-Israel and oppose the Iran nuclear deal, positions that Trump holds.”

The president was not informed of the move until after Higgins was fired, according to one source who is in regular contact with senior NSC figures.

Published reports described Higgins’ firing as a “lasting victory” for McMaster over longtime Trump officials who helped get the president into office.

Meanwhile, Glick noted, McMaster has replaced pro-Israel officials with anti-Israel, anti-Trump officials, and he allowed anti-Israel Obama holdovers to continue in their jobs:

McMaster fires all of Trump’s loyalists and replaces them with Trump’s opponents, like Kris Bauman, an Israel hater and Hamas supporter who McMaster hired to work on the Israel-Palestinian desk. He allows anti-Israel, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Iran Obama people like Robert Malley to walk around the NSC and tell people what to do and think. He has left Ben (reporters know nothing about foreign policy and I lied to sell them the Iran deal) Rhodes’ and Valerie Jarrett’s people in place.

Victoria Coates, a Flynn hire who served as a senior NSC member until recently, has been reassigned at her request to the administration’s Middle East peace team. The move is being viewed as a promotion and it is expected she will continue to play a role in the Iran portfolio, sources said.

Another wonderful member of the NSC, K.T. McFarland who was the Deputy NSA under General Flynn is now the Ambassador to Singapore.

Glick expressed disbelief that Trump could fire former General Michael Flynn as NSA “essentially for nothing,” while allowing McMaster to attack Israel, and undermining the rest of the Trump administration’s foreign policy with impunity.

Caroline Glick said that Trump should not fear firing another advisor, and I agree with her.  McMaster’s agenda is totally different than the President’s.  He and his entire leftist staff need to hear the words, “You’re fired.”

Iran is the Catalyst

One of the central flashpoints in this internal battle has been Iran and the future of the nuclear accord, which Trump campaigned against.  The following info is from a report by the Free Beacon.

“McMaster basically has this list and over the next two weeks he’s going to phase out more senior officials loyal to Trump,” said one administration insider intimately familiar with the upheaval occurring at the White House National Security Council (NSC). “They’re taking out people who were chosen to best implement the president’s policy that he articulated during the campaign.”

All these moves have instilled fury both inside and outside of the administration and it’s obvious our President is being pushed in a direction which is antithetical to the campaign promises that brought him into office.

Many of these fired NSC officials had been making the case that Trump should scrap the Obama administration’s 2015 nuclear deal over increasingly aggressive Iranian ballistic missile activity and mounting evidence Tehran is breaching the accord. McMaster, as well as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and top Obama-era State Department officials who worked on the deal, have aggressively urged maintaining it.

Harvey Fired for Plan to Scrap Iran Deal

The reason Derek Harvey is out is because he had constructed a comprehensive plan on how to scrap the nuclear deal.

In the past, McMaster has refused to fire the Obama holdovers. Now-fired Middle East NSC director Derek Harvey compiled a list of Obama holdovers and took that list directly to the president, who requested that McMaster follow through with Harvey’s recommendations. McMaster outright refused.

A source described the Trump administration’s Iran policy as “completely gutted” in the aftermath of these firings.

“These were people who fought for Trump’s election since he was nominated,” said one of the multiple sources in close contact with the NSC. “Many of these people were in Trump Tower during the period between the election and inauguration. These are people who gave up everything to support him against Hillary, and these are the people being purged by McMaster.”

Rich Higgins Fired for Memo Critical of Islam

McMaster told the National Security Council staff that the label “radical Islamic terrorism” was not helpful because terrorists are “un-Islamic.” Link That has been his position for years. McMaster even sent memos throughout the government complaining of Trump’s usage of these words in the joint session of Congress speech.  That was Obama’s stance, but President Trump has used those very words many times.

Experts on Koranic law have openly stated that the Obama-McMaster interpretation of Islamic scripture is plainly wrong.  Obviously, McMaster doesn’t agree.

In a story by the Atlantic‘s Rosie Gray which detailed the firing of Higgins, it is clear where McMaster stands on the dangers of Islamic Radical Terrorists.

The story described a memo written by Higgins outlining how the Trump administration should wrest control of policy-making from career staffers hostile to Trump. McMaster is said to have gone on the “warpath” over the disclosure of that memo.

Rich Higgins, a former Pentagon official who served in the NSC’s strategic-planning office as a director for strategic planning, was let go on July 21. Higgins’s memo describes supposed domestic and international threats to Trump’s presidency, including globalists, bankers, the “deep state,” and Islamists. The memo characterizes the Russia story as a plot to sabotage Trump’s nationalist agenda. It asserts that globalists and Islamists are seeking to destroy America. The memo also includes a set of recommendations, arguing that the problem constitutes a national-security priority.

“Globalists and Islamists recognize that for their visions to succeed, America, both as an ideal and as a national and political identity, must be destroyed,” the memo warns. It argues that this has led “Islamists to ally with cultural Marxists,” but that in the long run, “Islamists will co-opt the movement in its entirety.”

Higgins wrote the memo in late May, and at some time afterwards it began circulating among people outside the White House associated with the Trump campaign to whom Higgins had given it.

Higgins’s past writings focus on similar themes. “National Security officials are prohibited from developing a factual understanding of Islamic threat doctrines, preferring instead to depend upon 5th column Muslim Brotherhood cultural advisors,” he wrote in September. Higgins gave an interview to the Daily Caller News Foundation last year that outlines many of the same ideas laid out in the memo.

Higgins, according to another source with direct knowledge of the incident, was called into the White House Counsel’s office and asked about the memo. On July 21, the Friday of that week, he was informed by McMaster’s deputy Ricky Waddell that he was losing his job.

Another source said McMaster looked for evidence in the NSC’s email system to determine the name of the memo’s author “and then fired him.” [Link]

 

 

 

 

 

McMaster is following Susan Rice’s orders and eliminating all the people who came up with Trump and are genuinely loyal to him.

The security council continues to be overwhelmingly staffed with Obama holdovers (almost all of whom have retained their positions.)

So why then, is our President defending McMaster when conservatives are seeking his dismissal? [Link]

Mueller Hires Clinton And Obama Supporters To Investigate Trump

CNN tried to conduct an online Trump hating poll, but it turned out to be a landslide for our President!  Here’s what they asked…  “Should Trump be investigated for obstruction of justice?”  (and they included a very unflattering pic of the President).  As of Monday morning, 2,698,604 votes had been cast.  The verdict: 70.2% said “no,” and just 29.8% said “yes.”  Yes, we still support our duly elected President, Donald J. Trump!

Where are the Republicans?

Our President is right, this is a witch hunt, and you know that whatever this independent counsel does, they will eventually end up with some kind of bogus inane charge.  So, where is the outrage from the Republicans who have a Republican President, and a totally Republican Congress, thanks to the campaign of Donald John Trump and the grassroots Americans who voted for him?  Where the hell is the outrage, and why aren’t they speaking up?

Trump’s greatest problem is the cowardice of congressional Republicans. Most of them are in the DC swamp Trump initially attacked, but they owe their majority status to the president.  Fools that they are, they will eventually have to realize that the anti-Trump campaign is a sewer that could devour them, and their only chance of retaining control of the Congress is to pull together and put the president’s promises and programs through, yet they’re silent.  Why?  Because most are establishment globalists just like their buddies across the aisle.

While President Trump is the public face of the attacks, the individual that is being targeted, we the people will ultimately pay the price for the America-haters’ success in thwarting what is, in fact, our agenda that was adopted by Mr. Trump.

The Real Russian Collusion

Remember the uranium deal brokered through government agencies by then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family, built, financed, and eventually sold off to the Russians, a company that would become known as Uranium One. The sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Even the NYT’s reported this story!

Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations to the Clinton Foundation totaling $2.35 million, and then another half million for a Moscow speech by Bill Clinton for a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.

In August of 2009, Sec. of State Clinton requested FBI Director Mueller to be the one to personally conduct the transfer a 10-gram sample of HEU to Russian law enforcement sources during a secret “plane-side” meeting on a “tarmac” in the early fall of 2009.  A leaked classified cable confirmed Director Mueller’s September 21, flight to Moscow.  Why don’t we ask him about his collusion with Russia? [Link]

And say, Bernie Sanders might know more…he and his wife honeymooned in Russia.

Democrats Wouldn’t Allow This

We know good and danged well that this kind of behavior would never have been allowed with Obama, and it wasn’t allowed with the weekly scandals of President Clinton.  The scandals were shut down by the media and the Democratic party.  So where is the Republican chutzpah?  They are too damned silent.

Donald Trump is certainly not perfect, and I’m not at all in love with some of his choices, but I get down on my knees every single day and thank the Lord that we do not have the criminal, Hillary Rodham Clinton, in our White House again.

We need to help our President.  Just because you voted for him doesn’t mean you can go back to sleep or sit on the couch with no worries.  We are responsible for the government we get, and it’s up to each of us to fight for and help the good guys.

Who are the good guys?  Well, there sure aren’t very many of them, but the Conservative Caucus comes to mind, and so does our President, Steve Bannon, Jeffrey Sessions, and one great American who gave all, General Michael Flynn.

The enemies of freedom on the left, in the neo-con right, and in the main stream media all want to destroy the man who is not one of them.  He is not a globalist, not part of the establishment, and certainly not a politician.

It’s time to let him know via Twitter and through contacts listed at the end of this article, that he needs to go on the offensive and needs to expose what is happening to him and his administration, and just exactly who is doing it.  And he definitely needs to oust the Deep State holdovers from previous administrations just as Secretary Zinke did with the Department of Interior.

Robert Mueller Hires 13 Lawyers

Robert Mueller has hired 13 lawyers, and is planning to hire more, to help in the spurious investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election.  Talk about beating a dead horse. Now the left is pushing for obstruction of justice charges simply because of the president’s perhaps unwise expression of hope to Comey that General Flynn would not be prosecuted and then his firing of Comey. This does not qualify as obstruction of justice.

So why is there an FBI investigation when there is nothing at all to investigate? Because Democrats, unlike the Republicans, never give up and never give in.  They are so angry that they lost this election, they are now hellbent to destroy the rightfully elected President, and they’ve got their own insiders to do it.  This witch hunt is a huge career enhancement for all these lawyers.  And think about the bucks this is costing the taxpayers, and how all these lawyers will want to find “something” to hang their hats on.  I am totally and completely disgusted.

Mueller’s High-Powered Team

According to a report by CNN, those hired by Mueller are seasoned attorneys and experts, but as far as I’m concerned Mueller has proven he is incapable of being truly independent with his choices.

James Quarles worked at Mueller’s firm, Wilmer Hale.  Quarles has given nearly $33,000 to political campaigns over the years. He gave money to Democratic presidential candidates Michael Dukakis, Al Gore, John Kerry, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. In addition, Quarles gave more than $10,000 to help Democrats get elected to the House and another $10,000 on the Senate side, including money to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.  Quarles is a former assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate investigation, which the left likes to use as a comparison to the Trump investigation.

Jeannie Rhee, is a white-collar crime specialist, who also worked at Mueller’s old firm, and worked under Eric Holder for two years.  She has given $16,000 to the Democrats since 2008, and she maxed out for Hillary in ’15 and ’16. She has already received attention for representing the Clinton Foundation in a racketeering lawsuit brought by a conservative advocacy group, and also represented Clinton herself in a lawsuit seeking access to her private emails. She was Hillary’s attorney and now she’s on the staff to go after Donald Trump.

Andrew Weissmann, is a seasoned prosecutor who has spent his career going after organized crime.  He was the general counsel who prosecuted the Enron case, which was overturned 8-0 in the US Supreme Court.  Weissman gave Obama $2,300 and $2,000 to the Democrat Party.

Aaron Zebley was the attorney for Justin Cooper, who was Clinton’s personal staff aide, and was one of two people who had access to Hillary’s ‘private’ email server and helped to set it up in the first place. He worked for the Clinton White House, then a personal aide to Bill Clinton and then worked for the Clinton Foundation.  He also worked at Wilmer Hale with Mueller. Zebley is a cybersecurity expert who spent decades in the FBI before joining a private practice.

Then there’s Michael Dreeben who has argued more than 100 cases in front of the Supreme Court and is an expert on criminal law. And the latest is Elizabeth Prelogar, former law clerk for liberal Supreme Court justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan, who has donated in the past to Hillary’s and Obama’s presidential campaigns.

The New York Times reported that Mueller was also looking into possible money laundering by Trump campaign staffers and associates, and that may be the reason he hired Lisa Page who has strong experience with money laundering and organized crime cases. [Link]

The fact that Mueller’s team can conduct such a broad probe, apparently looking into every possible angle of the Trump-Russia scandal, from possible financial crimes to outright collusion with the Kremlin, is a reflection of just how much legal firepower he has assembled.

Dick Morris observes, “So there are 330 million people in America and probably four or five million lawyers. And Mueller couldn’t find anybody except aides who worked for Bill Clinton, represented Hillary Clinton or worked for the Clinton Foundation to go after Donald Trump. This is not a special prosecutor’s staff. This is a hit squad.”

The President’s Lawyers

 

Trump’s team, by contrast, is led by Marc Kasowitz, a Wall Street lawyer with minimal experience in federal investigations. His top two partners so far, Michael Bowe and Jay Sekulow, are known more for their time on TV rather than their time in the courtroom, and don’t have anywhere near the background Mueller’s team has to take on this challenge.  Trump recently hired John Dowd, who represented McCain during the Keating Five scandal.

Prominent lawyers with investigative experience at four major law firms declined to represent the president, citing concerns about Kasowitz’s leadership and his influence over Trump. These lawyers include Brendan Sullivan of Williams & Connolly, a white-collar specialist who is consistently named as one of the top 100 trial lawyers in the country, and Ted Olson of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, who was the solicitor general under George W. Bush from 2001 to 2004.  His wife was Barbara Olson, killed in 9/11.

Remember, VP Pence’s lawyer is Richard Cullen, the Godfather of one of Comey’s daughter’s.  Comey was a partner at Cullen’s firm.

The Investigation Has Started

Mueller’s team requested information from National Intelligence Director Dan Coates and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers. The investigators have interviewed former deputy director of NSA Richard Ledgett, Coates and Rogers, who testified that they were not pressurized by the Trump Administration officials.

The interviews are the first official functions of the special counsel’s new team of investigators.

Trump Supporters

Only one Republican can be credited for speaking out.  RNC national chairwoman Rona McDaniel is calling for an end to all of these blatant partisan exercises quickly, noting that Mueller has proven that he is incapable of being truly independent.

Other than the American people, there are very few media people who are supporting Trump.  Sean Hannity has called for Rosenstein and Mueller to recuse themselves or resign.  Lou Dobbs and Limbaugh both support our President and know the left is foaming at the mouth to destroy Trump.

Newt Gingrich said the investigation into collusion between President Trump’s campaign and Russian interests is a partisan “witch hunt” by top Democrats.  “It’s a totally one-sided witch hunt spurred on by the liberal media… and shrill partisanship of Schumer and Pelosi,” he said.

We need Rudy Giuliani, where is he, and where the hell is the White House Offensive?

Comey, Rosenstein and Mueller have a different agenda.  They don’t share the beliefs of the President and are determined to undermine the will of the American people who elected him.  The swamp is not being drained, new areas are being developed and built, it’s expanding.

And it’s being done by the insiders of the Deep State.

Evangelicals Pray for Prez in W.H.–Dems O U T R A G E D !!!

by Rev. Austin Miles

It was a spontaneous event with historical significance.  According to Faith Leader Johnnie Moore, a group of ministers were in the White House for an all-day meeting on policy that did not involve the leader of the free world.  President Trump learned that they were there and insisted that they come to the Oval Office to say “hi.”

President Trump, who has an excellent relationship with faith leaders was more than willing when they offered to lay hands on him and pray for his success and safety as well as thanking God for placing him in the most powerful office in the world by overpowering a totally rigged election. That election was so rigged that the world was shocked when the results came in.

California Governor Moonbeam (Jerry Brown) made a rule that all illegals in the state could vote since voting is taking a valid part in a country you wish to be a part of. And vote they did. Over 2-3 million illegals cast their votes for Hillary. A knuckle-headed Virginia governor ordered a bill that would allow, now listen to this, all convicted felons to vote (for Hillary).That resulted in over 40,000 additional votes for the Hill on the Hill.

(A convicted felon loses his right to vote.)  Voting machines, manufactured by George Soros flipped votes from Trump to Hillary…this has been documented. We’ve done our homework.

Of course the George Soros owned news media pulled every possible slam technique to make every single line with Trump in the story negative. With this latest nonsense one can see that the Soros Democrats can even turn praying for someone into a negative.

Clergy praying for the President of The United States was a part of America from her founding.  They wanted a country of morals, integrity, character, honesty, and a belief and love of God, They wanted our lives to be patterned on the principles of The Bible. The founders, many of them clergymen understood fully that a country based upon the above noted principles would be a strong country, even in the face of enemies who may try to do us harm. And no country could defeat us until we began mocking God, celebrating perversion and riotous living while working to get the Bible out of sight.

It became illegal to have Bibles and prayer in schools. The term, Christmas, was banned and Christmas programs became, ‘Winter Celebrations.’ The following year after the banning of the Bible and Prayer, the crime rate increased over 300%.That percentage has continued to climb ever since.

As the result, our country became a land of chaos. Child rape is not only a common occurrence but indeed an expected one. RECENTLY three immigrant Muslim kids who had been brought into America and put up in an apartment, viciously and violently raped a little five year old girl in Twin Falls, Idaho. Not content with that these Muslim savages also urinated in the little child’s mouth.

We have just learned the outcome of that outrage. Those punks did not get one day in prison or even at a juvenile facility. They were simply let go with no punishment. Even more outrageous, the Obama appointed State Attorney General made a public statement that anyone who makes a negative statement about the Muslim refugees will be charged and punished.

This is a result of pushing God, the Bible, morality and Christianity out of our lives. There was a time when people showed respect for each other, were polite, honest and did not parade their sins publicly for the world to see. Talk about thumbing ones’ nose at God. That will not continue without severe consequences.

So at last, during the worst time of our history, we saw clergy laying their hands in prayer over our new President. Some photos were taken by Johnnie Moore, a former vice president of Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University, one used in this story, and a couple of others were released on Twitter. This group included Vice President Mike Pence and top Presidential Adviser Jared Kushner . Moore is the author of: “Defying ISIS: Preserving Christianity in the Place of its Birth and in Your Own Backyard.”

Interesting, it is OK to defile the White House with rainbow colors celebrating the sin of homosexuality covering the People’s House, and to bring in anarchists and criminals, but bring in God and all hell comes alive. Here are some of the reactions from the Communist Democrat-progressives regarding praying in The White House:

CNN (Communist News Network) jumped into action immediately when that tweet got out about the prayers in the White House, by tying to convince their sucker-audiences that this proves the allegations of collusion between the Trump Campaign and the Russian government, which authorities believe (no “authorities” listed”) conducted a cyber war and hacking campaign in a bid to disrupt the November election.

How’s that again? What does one have to do with the other? This is nuts!  So praying for someone proves that Trump colluded with Russia to swing our election over to Hillary? Now we’ve heard it all. What’s more, other idiotic comments state that this entire prayer business in the White House is a cover up for “Russian Collusion,” and “this has all knocked the entire White House off Balance,” preached The Washington Post and The New York Times--All the fake news that’s not fit to print. We suppose this statement would prove that prayer is powerful.

It gets even nuttier. When the twitter photo went out, the Dems went into a hissy fit sending vulgar curse words to Johnnie Moore who said these were the vilest messages he had ever received. And this was all over him praying with the president.

The image of prayer in the White House immediately sparked an angry backlash, including allegations that Moore is somehow racist for having a better relationship with Trump than with his predecessor. We knew racism had to get in here somehow.

The Democrats, who are experts at twisting every event in our society, are conniving, cunning schemers who are so uneducated that they have no idea how this New One World Government that they are pushing so hard to achieve will affect their own lives.

They are so misled and uninformed that they would probably try to get rich selling Songs without Words. Wait! Isn’t that basically what they are doing now?

What we saw at the White House this past Tuesday was totally correct, proper, and encouraging. I’m sure those pastors who prayed with the President also gave thanks to God for performing the miracle that put him in office, yes, I too believe, with the deck stacked the way it was for the most wicked candidate in history, almost fool proof, that prayers were answered as millions upon millions of people were up early every morning playing an Abrahamic prayer asking God’s intervention.

And against all odds, God stepped in and answered those prayers, the prayers that astonished the world. Russia had nothing to do with Trump’s victory. It was The Hand of God that stepped in and propelled millions of voters to head to the polls.

Moore said evangelicals “have a wide open door like never before into this administration,” and suggested progressives will have to make peace with the fact that the president of the United States openly prays with leading evangelicals. This is good news for millions of people, with the exception of the Democrat Communists, Satanists, LGBT, Progressives and deviants.

“This wasn’t the first time, it won’t be the last time,” Moore said. “And the principle promise that evangelicals have made to the president, the vice president, and the administration is that millions of us will be praying for him every day.”

All of us have a profound duty to pray for our president, to get back to church-if you hear a distortion of The Holy Scriptures or any of that New Age crap at any time, RUN, don’t walk to the nearest exit, then go find a church that preaches the uncompromising Gospel of Jesus Christ. Then join a Bible study group. Base your life on the principles of the Bible.

We now have a president who will stand with the Christians and the ministers.  We have been miraculously given a second chance. Let’s not blow it. Let only God be the authority of your life

ANALYZING TODAY’S NEWS FOR TOMORROW’S HISTORY

 

Memo to Trump Team

By Jim O’Neill

President Trump and his aides want to know what to do about the Trump/Russia collusion brouhaha.  Glad they asked.  This is what they need to do:

First of all, STOP PLAYING DEFENSE.  Anyone with half a brain already knows that there is no “there” there,” and playing defense is a waste of time.  Enough with the “I’ve been framed yer Honor, framed I tell ya!”  It is way past time for the Trump Team to go on the offense and take the fight to the Dems.

A ploy that has been used to great effect by the Left over the years is to accuse their opponent of being guilty off doing what the Left itself is guilty of.  This automatically puts their opponent on the defense, and takes the spotlight off of the Left’s cupidity and culpability.

This is exactly what the Democrats and their various MSM propaganda outlets have done, and are doing, with their Trump/Russia collusion narrative.  I for one am so sick of their ceaseless nonsense I could scream.  ENOUGH!

You want collusion?  You want real traitorous anti-American collusion with Russia and other foreign governments?  Look to the Democrats – and you won’t have far to look either.  Look to the “Uranium One” deal, look for Russian “kickbacks” to the “Clinton Foundation,” look to Democratic point-man John Podesta, look to Ukraine’s involvement with the DNC, look to Obama’s State Department spending hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars trying to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The few things I just mentioned are the tip of the iceberg.  So, get to work Trump Team; stop putzing around saying “I’m innocent I tell ya!”  “We the people” already know you are innocent.  Track down and prosecute the guilty.  Stop dithering and start playing offense – HUGELY.

Trump Follows Constitution, Withdraws From Paris Accord

There is no proof that carbon dioxide is causing or precedes global warming…All indications are that the minor warming cycle finished in 2001 and that Arctic ice melting is related to cyclical orbit-tilt-axis changes in earth’s angle to the sun.  John Williams, agricultural scientist, researcher, author, and educator, University of Melbourne

The Constitution gives the President the power to commit the United States to treaties – but only with the advice and consent of two-thirds of the US Senate, and only if the agreement does not contravene the Constitution. Keep that in mind as we look at Obama’s actions with the signing late in his presidency of the Paris Accord.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Signature of Paris Accord Unconstitutional

Obama claimed that the Paris Agreement was not a treaty, thus he did not submit the Agreement to the Senate for approval. The problem is that the Paris Agreement is certainly a treaty, but it was a unilateral act by President Obama that had no basis in the U.S. Constitution.

It should have and would have required Senate ratification by a two-thirds majority, under the Constitution’s Treaty Clause (Art 2, Sec. 2, Clause 2). That’s how the Framers of the Constitution understood the Clause.

The reason we’re being told that the Paris Accord is a nontreaty is because it evades the requirements of the Constitution to ratify it. Why? Because of something called the “Treaty on Treaties.”

What Makes Paris Accord a Treaty?

The Paris agreement is a treaty as defined by the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, i.e., “an international agreement concluded between two or more States in written form and governed by international law….”

So why does Senate confirmation matter? Our Framers wisely believed that it would be unsafe to give one man alone the power to bind the country through a treaty, and they were right, because the Senate would not have ratified the Paris Accord!

So, how did we legally bypass the Constitution and get a treaty?  Well, we can thank former President Nixon.

Nixon’s Treaty on Treaties

In 1970, President Richard M. Nixon signed a monstrosity known as the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. It is referred to as the “Treaty on Treaties,” — even though our Constitution is clear that a treaty requires a supermajority of two-thirds of the Senate to ratify.  The U.S. Senate has not given its advice and consent to this treaty either, so it should be withdrawn as well.

Don’t start nodding off, this is important…hang in there with me. Under Article 18 of this Treaty on Treaties, once a nation signs a treaty — or merely does something that could be interpreted as “expressing its consent to be bound by the treaty” — that nation is “obliged to refrain from acts which would defeat the object and purpose of the treaty.”  Here’s what it says:

Article 18. OBLIGATION NOT TO DEFEAT THE OBJECT AND PURPOSE

OF A TREATY PRIOR TO ITS ENTRY INTO FORCE

A State is obliged to refrain from acts which would defeat the object and purpose of a treaty when:

(a) It has signed the treaty or has exchanged instruments constituting the treaty subject to ratification, acceptance or approval, until it shall have made its intention clear not to become a party to the treaty; or

(b) It has expressed its consent to be bound by the treaty, pending the entry into force of the treaty and provided that such entry into force is not unduly delayed.

In other words, the Constitution notwithstanding, once a presidential administration signs or otherwise signals assent to the terms of an international agreement, the United States must consider itself bound – even though the Senate has not approved it, even though it has not been ratified.  Totally unconstitutional.

The Treaty on Treaties claims the equivalent of Senate ratification. Obama’s signature is what triggered the Treaty on Treaties obligation to follow it, even though it hasn’t been ratified.

Clinton signed Kyoto and Bypassed Senate

Of course, presidents don’t like going to the Senate for approval of their pet projects. Back in 1998 Bill Clinton signed the Kyoto Treaty on global warming without submitting it to the Senate for ratification. He knew that if he did so the treaty would be DOA.

President George W. Bush withdrew the signature of the United States from the treaty in 2001, even as Donald Trump backed out of the Paris Accord. In both cases there was a lot of huffing and puffing from the left, but Mr. Bush and Mr. Trump were simply doing what their voters wanted. They were also more faithful to the Constitution than Clinton or Obama had been.

Basically, Obama’s signing of this Agreement had no Constitutional standing whatsoever, so President Trump’s withdrawal was officially burying a legally dead horse.

Some Claim Withdrawal Takes Years

Any number of leftist articles have claimed that actual withdrawal from this agreement would take three or four years with considerable administrative and legal costs.  They also claim we’re the highest per capita emissions producer, but they forget China is in a pollution league by itself accounting for 30 percent of worldwide emissions.  Article 28 of the Agreement purported to prohibit any signatory nation from withdrawing until three years after its entry into force on Nov. 4, 2016. But that restriction—like the entire Agreement—was constitutionally null and void.

Other articles claim the agreement is fundamentally symbolic, which we also know is hogwash, it would have thoroughly destroyed America’s economy.  Link

This Treaty on Treaties is a mechanism to commit the United States to things that are drastically, horribly detrimental to us without going through the constitutional process that ratifies such treaties. It substitutes verbal consent of agreement in principle, as the equivalent of a signature and two-thirds of the Senate voting to affirm. The American people are being told, “It’s only symbolic, just a piece of paper, means nothing.” They’re also being told that Trump would gain a foothold with the left if he kept it in force.  What nonsense!  The left is the enemy, we need to defeat them at every turn.

Andrew McCarthy is Right

Here’s what he wrote in his article, Don’t Stop With Paris!

President Trump should not stop at Paris. While he’s at it, he should affirmatively withdraw the United States from the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. We don’t need an international convention on that. We have a Constitution that renders multilateral boondoggles unbinding in the absence of super-majority Senate consent. Want to put “America first?” Then it is past time to rectify our sovereignty and the rule of law — our law.

Leakers Expose Private Trump/Sessions Conversation

The goal of this Nation, I so strongly believe, is to be a preeminent world power. We have to understand what comes with that: The responsibility to be strong. Jeff Sessions

Media Strikes Again

Our Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, is absolutely right, on the responsibility to be strong! And that means not only our President, but his entire administration.  Why? Because he’s not one of them and he’s bucking the globalist new world order gang who hates that President Trump wants to free America from their clutches.

So now, the leakers, who are from previous administrations, and perhaps some even in Trump’s administration, are telling the MSM that Sessions and Trump are not getting along, had a big set-to and Sessions offered his resignation.  True or false, we don’t know, all of it may be an embellishment by the backstabbers leaking this.

Honestly Mr. President, if you’d fire these jackals, this conversation between you and our Attorney General, would never have become public.  Way past time to send out pink slips.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Media Says Sessions Offered Resignation

It has been alleged that Trump has not been happy with Jeff Sessions since he recused himself from investigating the phony story of Russian meddling in the election.  And our President is right.  Jeff Sessions should not have recused himself during confirmation of investigating Hillary Clinton either. I’m sure he thought he was doing the proper thing to maintain peace, but he was wrong.  You cannot ever give in to the enemy, whether it be the Democrats or the neo-con Trotskyite Republicans who are Democrats in Republican drag.

What I believe AG Sessions should have said to these clowns who demanded his recusal was, “Folks, I’m hired to do a job, and I’ll do that job no matter who is in charge without any prejudicial influence.”  That is remaining strong.

So, the two of them got in a heated conversation, and Sessions allegedly offered his resignation which was turned down by Trump.

The New York Times, citing unnamed sources, of course the rotten leakers, reported that Sessions told Trump that he needed more freedom to do his job successfully and he could resign if that was what Trump wanted.

A source (leaker again) told the paper the conversation occurred right before Trump’s overseas trip.  Well, that’s weeks ago, so this is just now coming out.  Insanity it’s over, move on.

The Travel Ban

Trump took to Twitter to publicly criticize the DOJ’s legal strategy in defending his proposed travel ban barring the entry of people from certain Muslim-majority countries.

He tweeted, “The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to the supreme court.” However, Mr. President, you oversee the department and you also signed the second version of the ban.  The buck stops with you, don’t pass the blame.

Mistakes Have Been Made

Mr. President, the same thing goes for you as goes for our wonderful Attorney General, who should not have recused himself.  You should not have allowed divisiveness to come between your Vice President and General Michael Flynn.  Instead of asking for his resignation, or accepting it, or whatever was done, you should have said to both of them, “We cannot let the enemies of freedom divide us or create discord, controversy and tension.  Both of you work out your problems and get back to work.”

In allowing the loss of that great man, General Michael Flynn, you allowed the enemy to believe they had won and could continue to destroy the people you chose for your administration.

We Need Sessions

There cannot be this kind of friction with the men who are the very best choices for this administration, and these conversations do not belong in the public arena.  They sound like a married couple arguing over the children, and one says, “Well, then get a divorce.”  That has to stop, and only by firing previous administration appointees will that happen.

You, President Trump have made some excellent choices, and some that we’re not happy with, but you are beloved because you know what is wrong with America and you have pledged to straighten it out.  We want to help you.  The very best thing you could do is keep any conversations totally private, and get rid of the leakers.  Hire some folks out here with excellent resumes who are not part of the establishment cabal.  I’m talking about people all over America who spent their own money and time and worked themselves into exhaustion to elect you.  Call us…we have names for you, and make it right with our wonderful Attorney General.  We need him, and so do you.

And now our Attorney General has to give testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on this insanity of Russian collusion in the 2016 Presidential race, and the firing of James Comey. Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano believes that Jeff Sessions should not testify that he will be in a dangerous position.

 

Kathy Griffin, Godless Radical Beheads Trump In Seditious ISIS Gag

I am posting this even though it’s old because it plays directly into what happened this morning in Virginia.

Sedition, the crime of creating a revolt, disturbance, or violence against lawful civil authority with the intent to cause its overthrow or destruction. And folks, this is violence, and we’ve seen it escalate to horrendous atrocities by the socialist left who cannot accept that Donald J. Trump is America’s President.

Kathy Griffin is a so-called comedian who long ago disavowed her Catholic upbringing. As a young girl, Griffin attended St. Bernadine’s Elementary School and began to develop a dislike for organized religion because of the punishments she said she received from the nuns.  Her hatred of God is obvious in everything she says and does.  And she stepped over the bounds of common decency with her latest unspeakable attack on our President and his family.

Barron Trump, the 11-year-old first son was apparently watching television alongside his mother when a photo of Griffin’s video appeared on the screen, and he allegedly panicked and started screaming, “Mommy, Mommy!”

He is 11 years old.  He doesn’t have a clue of who the demented comedian, Kathy Griffin even is…so his initial reaction to the image was that something horrible had happened to his father.

Griffin’s 2007 Emmy Award

At the 2007 Emmy awards, Griffin stated in her acceptance speech, “A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus.” She went on to say, “Suck it, Jesus. This is my God now!” referring to the Emmy.

Yes, this woman thinks nothing of offending America’s Christians, our Messiah Jesus Christ, or those who voted for Donald J. Trump.  She has crossed the line of common decency into a sickness of hatred that could ultimately destroy her soul.

President and Mrs. Trump’s Comments

“Kathy Griffin should be ashamed of herself. My children, especially my 11-year-old son, Barron, are having a hard time with this. Sick!” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.  He is so right, and his wife, Melania went even further.

“I Went Too Far,” Says Griffin

Griffin apologized on social media after the Secret Service suggested she will be investigated for threatening the president, and well she should be!  Her act is one of sedition.

Well, Kathy, how about apologizing to the Trump family?!  That’s something you haven’t done!  And especially to their young son, Barron.

Just because you can say something, or do something in our country, doesn’t mean you should.  You have offended Christians and the majority of the electorate with your macabre and seditious stunt…a stunt where when you apologized, you even rolled your eyes.  There are consequences Griffin, and one day you’ll see them.

Can you imagine what would have happened she had done this to our partially black President Obama?  The media would have demanded her head on a platter, her arrest, charged her with sedition, held her until trial and then sent her to prison for life.  But because our President is not one of the globalist establishment insiders, we hear little to nothing from the left, the Republican right, and even the pulpits.  All quiet on the Western front!  But the tweets are very telling…

 

 

 

 

The Decay of Societal Decency

I’ve watched the descent of common decency, of courtesy, of the once recognized standard of propriety, good taste, and modesty degenerate into tasteless flippancy. The least you can expect from society is some respect for the decencies, but the slippery slope started long ago.  Perhaps it was in the 1960s, or maybe even earlier, but now it is so obvious that society is no longer refined; it is vulgar and utterly repugnant.  Anything goes, no matter how distasteful, and that is evident by the filth spewed from Kathy Griffin.

Griffin’s CNN Future

CNN says it has cut ties with the comedian, reluctantly of course. The network said it had terminated its agreement with the comedian to appear on its New Year’s Eve programs which she’d hosted for a decade with Anderson Cooper.  I doubt this will last long.

CNN initially called her video “disgusting and offensive.” Anderson Cooper weighed in with his own reprimand, “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in,” he tweeted. “It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.”

A New Mexico casino said it has canceled a performance by Griffin. She was scheduled to perform at Route 66 Casino, operated by Laguna Pueblo, in July.

Griffin has also lost a commercial endorsement deal that she landed just three weeks ago. Squatty Potty, a Utah-based company whose products include toilet stools and other bathroom accessories, said it was suspending an ad campaign that featured Griffin.

And that’s where Griffin belongs…in the toilet, and flushed.

Where is the Outrage???

Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton was quick to express her outrage at Griffin tweeting, “This is vile and wrong. It is never funny to joke about killing a president.”  I wonder if she said that only because her father was one.  Well Chelsea, where are the rest of your leftist buds, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, David Brock, George Soros, your parents, the Obamas, etc.?  Not a peep…

Remember when CNN got a rodeo clown fired for wearing an Obama mask?  Limbaugh expounded on this today, and here’s what he said:

You would have thought that God and the Creator himself was being made fun of and laughed at and mocked. This clown, the man who wore the Obama face mask was smeared, he was targeted, he was lampooned, he was criticized, he was savaged for wearing an Obama mask, because it was sacrilegious, it was insulting, it was beyond the pale, it was over the top.

Now with Kathy Griffin and her decapitation of Trump stunt all over the Drive-By Media you hear people saying, “I don’t want to talk about it. Come on, come on, let’s move on. This is so outrageous, it’s not even worth talking about.” Mika Brzezinski, soon to be Mika Brzezinski Scarborough, on Morning Jolt, “I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to talk about it. There’s nothing to see.” Some woman named Molly Ball who writes for some left-wing publication inside the Beltway was on CNN. “What’s the big deal? It isn’t any big deal.” Total, total hypocrisy.

Because It’s Trump, No Big Deal

The left is tolerant of anyone who brings perversion into society and calls it normal.  Yet, they have no tolerance for those who oppose this perversion and who are appalled at the annihilation of proper etiquette and common decency towards our fellow man.

We cannot just sit around and pray, we must work.  Just as the Lord said in Ephesians 2:9 “Not of works, lest any man should boast.” And then followed it with Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto GOOD WORKS, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

We must stand for righteousness, we must stand for a Godly and decent society.  We must rebuff this filth with all of our being, and as Ephesians 6:13 states, “Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, TO STAND…”

Tweet to President Trump: We the People Have Your Back

By Jim O’Neill

Members of the media have derisively compared President Trump to President Nixon.

Chris Pandolfo  “Media hit the gas on the ‘Trump is Nixon’ theory

The globalist media’s (AKA mainstream media) comparison of President Trump to Nixon is marginally less absurd and offensive than their previous leitmotif of comparing Trump to Hitler, but the media still has a long way to go before they touch back down on terra firma.  I for one am not holding my breath awaiting the media’s return to sanity, as they seem hell bent on staying stuck on stupid in perpetuity.

I’ll let you in on a not so secret secret — the media, academia, Hollywood, the “Deep State,” and more NGOs than you can shake a rolled up 501c3 tax code at are arrogant snobs.  You heard me correctly, arrogant snobs.

In fact, arrogant snobbery is a thread that runs throughout all of the radical left’s history.  It is oh so obvious if you keep an eye out for it.  There is no law against being an arrogant twit (or twitette), unfortunately, but as Sun Tzu noted long ago it is wise to know your enemy.

In any event, when the snobbish globalist media hysterically attack Trump they are in effect hysterically attacking we the people, for he is our messenger and we put him where he is.  Make no mistake, when the media show disdain for President Trump’s “commonness” they are being arrogantly dismissive of we the people by proxy.

The Democrats apparently could not care less what we the people think, and are enthusiastically digging themselves a deeper and deeper political pit.  I say “Bravo Democrats!”  Here, let me help.

When we the people protect Trump’s back we are merely exercising enlightened self-interest.  By protecting Trump’s back, we are protecting our own backs.

My friend Joan Swirsky recently penned an article in which she outlined the many ways in which we the people have already benefited from Trump’s presidency, which she compares to a juggernaut.

This Mt. Everest of accomplishments belongs to a man who is straight out of central casting.  Every day, he looks like a million dollars and is stunningly successful in his dealings with everyone from heads of state to manual laborers to ardent fans to entrenched skeptics.  Every day, he brings both ebullience and laser-like focus to a job he clearly relishes, displays admirable courage in making hard choices, and is zooming along at warp speed to Make America Great Again!

Joan Swirsky “The Juggernaut and the Jerks

President Trump has set a phenomenally fast pace for getting America back on track.  His is a vision of hope and freedom, sustenance and safety.  He, and his agenda are, in the words of William James, “a powerful and magnetic force.”

Positive images of the future are a powerful and magnetic force….   They draw us on and energize us, give us courage and will to take on important initiatives.  Negative images of the future also have a magnetism.  They pull the spirit downward in the path of despair….

William James (1842-1910)

I believe that ultimately history will put President Trump in the same league as Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln.  But for now, we the people have to suffer through the lashing out and flailing of globalism’s death throes – an ugly and dangerous time indeed.

But we the people are getting hip to the left’s tricks.  For example, one of their favorite tactics is to preempt an attack from an opponent by first claiming that their opponent is guilty of what they themselves are guilty of.  This tactic is used so often that anymore when the Democrats accuse conservatives of anything my Pavlovian response is to immediately look for whatever the Democrats are hiding of the same nature.

The Russian brouhaha comes to mind.  As far as President Trump is concerned there is no “there” there – as has been proven ad nauseam.  But if we the people look to the left what do we see?  We see collusion aplenty between the Russians and the Clintons and other Democratic “movers and shakers.”.  My, my, imagine that.

As more and more concrete, tangible, positive results of the Trump Administration’s policies come to fruition, more and more people will board the “Trump train,” and the current strident cries of hysterical derision and slander will gradually fade into a richly deserved ignominy.

President Trump, know this: We the people are well aware that you are deep in a nest of vipers – traitorous snakes intent on destroying you, and us, and our dreams for ourselves and future generations of Americans.  We pray for you, your family, and your aides.  We know that many media pundits are hate-filled liars, and we dismiss them out of hand.  We greatly appreciate that you are tirelessly working on America’s behalf, on freedom’s behalf, on our behalf.  President Trump, know that we the people feel blessed to have you at the helm, and we have your back boss, believe it.

Obviously, this isn’t an actual “tweet” per se…but it’ll do.

Globalist Republicans Aid Democrats To Thwart Trump

 I know that I am leaving the winning side for the losing side, but it is better to die on the losing side than to live under Communism. Whittaker Chambers

No one should suffer from the great delusion that any form of communism or socialism which promotes the dictatorship of the few instead of the initiative of the millions can produce a happier or more prosperous society. Charles E. Wilson

Mr. President, VETO THE BUDGET BILL!

There is way too much wrong with this bill!  Money goes to Planned Parenthood to murder more of our unborn, money continues to go to sanctuary cities to hide illegal alien criminals, there is no money for the border wall so our sovereignty is still nonexistent.  We fought like hell to send all these republicans to Congress and they act like Democrats because our President isn’t one of “them.”

Pence called the deal a “bipartisan win for the American people.”  Who the hell is this globalist ass kidding?  Oh yeah, we know he’s one of them and chummy with the Republicans who hate Trump, and we haven’t fallen for his phony Bible thumping.

Chuckie Schumer thinks they’ve had a massive victory, and perhaps the above Chambers quote would seem to be true, especially with the aid the republicans are giving to the democrats to thwart everything Trump promised in his campaign.  Even without the Conservative Caucus vote, this rotten piece of legislation may pass.

I don’t want our side to be the losing side; I want us to win, but to do that, we have to let the criminals in Congress know we mean business.

I want the wall built, I want the influx of non-vetted refugees from known terrorist nations stopped, I want sanctuary cities defunded, I want Obamacare repealed, and I want taxes lowered across the board!

No one person helped Donald J. Trump get elected, certainly not Jared Kushner as some have proclaimed.  The only reason Trump is in our White House is because the American people heard him echo what they themselves wanted, and they responded with massive votes.

So, let’s take a look at where we stand on these issues, even though there are far, far more, and see who is blocking our President and ultimately THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

Build the Wall

Most of the billions of dollars in cash sent to Mexico by Mexicans living in the U.S. is transferred by “undocumented” workers, read illegal aliens, and the total topped $26 billion in 2016, according to research by the Washington institute Inter-American Dialogue.

While services have expanded, the cost of sending money to Latin America and the Caribbean has dropped to below 5 percent of the transfer amount.  Time to raise it.  Do the addition, if it’s raised to 7 percent, that extra 2 percent would bring in $520 million in one year.  Surely in a number of years the wall would be paid for, so what’s the hold up? Haven’t we given enough taxpayer aid to illegal aliens?  How about getting some of it back to build the wall?

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the cost could range from $12 billion-$15 billion.  Surely businessman Trump could beat that price.  The likes of McCain, Murkowsky, Corker, Cornyn, Lankford, Amash, and others of the same ilk are fighting our president tooth and nail.  They have a million excuses for allowing our southern border to remain a sieve.

And according to Rush Limbaugh they’ve actually laughed at Trump’s belief that he’ll get the wall.  Maybe they’d best call China and ask them to tear down their wall, after all, it isn’t fair to illegal aliens.

Mexico is saying the wall is hostile and unfriendly and an aggravating action!  Really Mexico?  Well, your criminals pouring over our borders and murdering Americans and bleeding the taxpayers dry is rather hostile and unfriendly as well.

Tyrannical Judges Gutting the Constitution

Mr. President, the Constitution and the law is on your side for your travel ban.  You have the authority to stop these judges from delaying your executive orders regarding who enters our country.  The majority of these judges have been put in place by Democratic presidents.  Carter, Bush, and Obama appointed the three 9th circuit court judges who upheld District Judge Robart’s stay on Trump’s first EO.

Obama appointee Judge Theodore D. Chuang ruled that the purpose of the President’s first travel ban, and also his revised travel ban, was to discriminate against Muslims for political reasons and the ruling cited Mr. Trump’s own campaign words against him.  What hogwash!

What these judges do not understand is that this is not an executive order against a religion, but against a worldwide political movement that carries with it hatred for infidels, or non-Muslims.  Hundreds of thousands of non-vetted refugees have entered this country, and they have no desire to assimilate.  One needs only to look at Europe today to understand why Trump’s EO’s should stand.

Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress the power to regulate immigration. In 1952, Congress passed a law empowering the president to deny entry into the U.S. to “any class of aliens” considered to be “detrimental to the interests of the United States.”  In other words, a threat to America and in the interests of national security.  And that is exactly what our President is trying to do!  He wants to stop the threat!

The Supremes like making law, don’t wait on them, use the law you now have that previous presidents have used, and move ahead.

Defunding of Sanctuary Cities

Judge William Orrick was appointed by Obama, in 2012, to the position of US District Judge for the Northern District of California.  This leftist ruled that the US government can’t withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities.  Orrick raised a couple hundred thou for Obama, and he also blocked the release of the underground recordings of Planned Parenthood, in which the sale of harvested organs from aborted babies was openly discussed.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the U.S. Department of Justice had sent warning letters to nine jurisdictions which were identified in a May 2016 report by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General as having laws that potentially violate 8 U.S.C. § 1373 a/k/a “sanctuary city policies.”  Link

The administration says sanctuary cities allow dangerous criminals back on the street and that the order is needed to keep the country safe…think of Kathryn Steinle and others murdered in “sanctuary” cities.  These sanctuary cities, like Portland and Berkeley are ripe for leftist violence, and are “safe spaces” for total censorship of free speech.

Again, the law is usurped by these judges, and again it will probably end up in the supreme court…which means more American citizens will die in these cities before a ruling on the law which already exists to protect us, comes down from the high court.

Obamacare Repeal

Conservatives were thankful that RyanCare failed.  What Trump supporters wanted to know was why Paul Ryan was allowed to put forth something that still had the stench of Obamacare, and expect the shrinking middleclass to like it.

RyanCare 2.0 was not worth passing, and would have been political suicide for the Republicans.  We want Obamacare repealed completely, without any fixes.  Just get rid of the damned thing!  Put those few who needed Obamacare on Medicaid for the interim while the free market adjusts.

Representative Jim Jordan, Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, along with 30 of the most conservative members of Congress, said RyanCare didn’t go far enough, and they were right.  It didn’t, and that’s why they were against it!  The members are very pro-life and against Planned Parenthood, but RyanCare simply did not defeat enough of Obamacare.

Jordan was interviewed by Chris Wallace who attacked him for not passing the RyanCare bill and repeated what Speaker Ryan had said, “We’re now stuck with Obamacare for the foreseeable future.” Jordan stated that only 17% of Americans were actually for the “American Health Care Act.”

Wallace accused Jordan and the Caucus of going against Trump and Ryan on this important bill and being obstructionists.  But Jordan came back with the truth of it.  He said, “This is about the American people and what we told them we were going to do. There is no way this legislation was consistent with what the American people sent us here to accomplish, no way it was consistent with what we told them we were going to do, and that’s why you saw members oppose it and that’s why the Freedom Caucus opposed it in large part, because of that simple fact.”

Jordan said they promised to do it the way they told the American people, and this bill absolutely did not live up to that promise.  “So, let’s do tax reform, like we told the American people we were going to. Let’s make sure we actually secure the border, build the wall, like we told the American people we were going to. We make this job way too complicated.  Do what we told the American people we were going to do.”

Even the evil United Nations is warning the Trump administration in a bizarre letter that repealing the unconstitutional ObamaCare takeover of health insurance may violate what the UN likes to call “international law.”

Repeal, without any replacement is the only answer!

Tax Reform

Speaker Paul Ryan is claiming that the failure of RyanCare will now make tax reform much more difficult.  White House budget director Mick Mulvaney and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin both had essentially the same message.  However, plans for tax reform, job creation, trade deals, and infrastructure spending remain intact regardless of what happened to the health care bill.

That admission shows how tough it’s been for Trump to get any major legislative victories, and the Republicans have offered none to speak of. In spite of Republican control of Congress, Trump and GOP leaders haven’t been able to move forward on significant legislation. It is simply because the majority of Republicans are more in bed with their democrat so-called adversaries than with their Republican President.  The push for healthcare reform hit the wall when both moderates and conservatives balked at the bill as presented, and hill Republicans concede that comprehensive tax reform may be harder to accomplish!

What a bunch of poppycock.  I never saw one thing Obama wanted to be difficult for him to pass even when the Republicans won back the House in 2010 (and assumed control in January 2011), and won back Senate control in 2014 (assuming control in January 2015).  They still gave Obama everything he wanted or they would have been called “racists” by the Socialist media.  So, they ran scared and caved.

We have a president who made promises to the American people, who resonated with the middleclass and grassroots, who told them what he wanted to do, and the NeverTrumpers in his own party are making new legislation just as difficult for him as the communists in the Democratic party.

Conclusion

We’ve hit the first 100 days, and Lou Dobbs made it clear when he said, “Speaker Ryan, working against the President and his agenda at every turn, frustrating the entire GOP conference and indeed the American people. President Trump has been gracious, he’s been generous, even, with the inept Ryan, but the President today, acknowledging that he is disappointed.”

Folks, it has always been up to us.  Electing a president you like doesn’t mean that one man alone can fix it all.  The entire congress needs to be cleaned out and replaced at nearly every election if they don’t follow the Constitution.  Unfortunately, we now have several generations who have not been taught the Constitution and are illiterate when it comes to understanding our government and even our voting system.

Still, it is up to all of us.  We must make our voices heard, just as we did when we elected Trump.  That means calling the White House and the damnable traitorous filth in Congress, it means emailing your senators and representatives.  It means we have to harass them into doing what we voted for, Donald Trump’s campaign promises!

Bottom line folks, it’s up to we the people.  So, get off your backsides and get busy!

Protect me from the plots of the wicked, from mobs of evil men. They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim cruel words like arrows. They are quick to spread their shameless lies; they destroy good men with cowardly slander. —Psalm 64:2-4

Fake News, Fake News, Fake News!

AG Sessions is the latest to be under attack for speaking to the Ambassador from Russia. The former Alabama Senator should never have recused himself from the investigation of the phony Russian connection to the election. Neither should Sessions have recused himself during the confirmation hearings of a future investigation into Bill and Hillary Clinton’s affairs. With all the squawking by the democratic socialists, the liberal media, and the Soros/Obama organizers, they’ve latched onto this phony Russian involvement in the election story and are pumping it for all it’s worth.

The media’s lies are that Putin loves Trump, Trump loves Putin, and they got together to make sure Trump won the election via Russian interference…all lies. Again, media is allowed to lie with impunity because of the 1964 Supreme Court decision, NYTs v. Sullivan.

The entire Trump administration simply must not cave to any of this, and they need to completely ignore these rabble rousers. The first to fall was, of course, the brilliant and knowledgeable General Michael Flynn, a loss to this administration that will never be replaced with anyone as capable or experienced as Flynn. I really believe this was President Trump’s first and worst mistake. Letting the talented Flynn resign instead of fighting the media lies was a big mistake. He should have told both Pence and Flynn to ride it out and get back to work. Flynn’s replacement, General McMaster, is nothing but a CFR globalist clone.

AG Jeff Sessions is probably the finest Christian man we’ve had in politics for decades. Not only was he re-elected four times by Alabamians, but he was beloved by the citizenry, and that includes all races. He has spent five decades as a champion of civil rights.

There is no way the media or any investigation can prove that Trump or any of his administration have worked with the Russians to win the election. Now that AG Sessions has recused himself, an Obama lackey is in charge of the investigation into these false allegations, and that leads us to the real Trojan Horse.

The Internal Trojan Horse

There are many Obama appointee holdovers on the National Security Council affecting our military operations. There are a handful of Obama appointee holdovers at the CIA who were groomed to oppose President Trump by John Brennan and Mike Morell, both of whom repeatedly lied about Benghazi.

There are Obama holdovers in NSA, DHS, EPA, and the FBI, including some members of the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, ISNA, MAS, etc., who are opposing President Trump. The nine personnel who criminally released the content of General Mike Flynn’s telephone conversations with the Russian Ambassador to the press were Obama holdovers…another reason Trump should have told them to go pound sand and kept General Flynn. Think I’m angry about it, you dang well bet I am…and my arrows all point to VP Pence. Flynn should definitely still be in the administration! The loss was catastrophic for the nation.

Socialist Democrats Lie Again

Democrats were aghast after learning Attorney General Jeff Sessions met twice, as a senator, before his confirmation as an AG, with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. without telling Congress at his confirmation hearing – but it turns out Sergey Kislyak is no stranger to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

The Russian Ambassador was seated with the democrats at the Joint Sessions of Congress meeting the other night. He is a good friend of…here it comes, Chuckie Schumer! And guess who else he’s met and enjoyed…a picture is worth a thousand words.

Funny thing too, Senator Nancy Pelosi claimed she’d never met with this Russian Ambassador, but in fact, she had, and she met with other high level Russian dignitaries. [Link]

Then you have Senator Clair McCaskill claiming she never met with the Russian Ambassador, but she apparently forgot about her tweets in January of 2013 where she stated she, along with several other democrats, was off to meet with him. [Link]

During Obama’s reign, the longtime Russian ambassador met with seven Democratic senators in a single sit-down in 2013. Ambassador Sergey Kisylak appeared at the Obama White House at least 22 times…running a silent coup on Trump.

As House Speaker Paul Ryan put it last week, “We meet with ambassadors all the time.”

Sessions Rejects Democrat Claims

The central issue dogging Sessions is not so much that he met with the ambassador, but that he claimed during his confirmation hearing he had no “communications” with Russian officials during his time as a Trump campaign surrogate. In a press conference, though, Sessions rejected claims he misled Congress and suggested he was answering in the context of campaign-related discussions, which he maintains he never had.

But some Sessions critics nevertheless portrayed meetings with Kislyak, whose country was accused of meddling in the 2016 campaign, as a rare summit, particularly for a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee like Sessions.

And no, Jeff Sessions didn’t perjure himself. It’s not even a close call. All of this is bunk, or as Limbaugh calls it, Barbara Streisand (B.S.).

Democrat Involvement with Russia

The Russian link to Obama is the real investigation. When Obama said to Russian Prime Minister, Medvedev, “You tell Vladimir, I’ll have much more flexibility after the election,” about reducing America’s nuclear stockpile, anyone with a brain knew what was going on. The question arises again, what party is in bed with the Russians? Sessions is certainly not alone. The democrats love Russian dignitaries is an open book.

Let’s look at history, because it’s worth remembering the reprehensible behavior of Senator Ted Kennedy in 1984. While Senator Al Franken and other Democrats have the vapors over a truthful, complete, and correct answer AG Jeff Sessions gave in his confirmation hearing, it’s worth remembering the reprehensible behavior of Senator Ted Kennedy in 1984.

This behavior didn’t involve launching a vehicle into a tidal channel while drunk. (The Bridge at Chappaquiddick by Jack Olsen) This reprehensible behavior was collusion with America’s most deadly enemy in an effort to defeat Ronald Reagan’s reelection.

The memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy (P.J. Media):

Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. “The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” the memorandum stated. “These issues, according to the senator, (Kennedy) will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign.”

Among the promises, Kennedy made the Soviets was that he would ensure that the television networks gave the Soviet leader primetime slots to speak directly to the American people, thus undermining Reagan’s framing of the sinister nature of the USSR. Even then, the Democrats had the power to collude with the legacy media. Kennedy also promised to help Andropov penetrate the American message with his Soviet agitprop.

Exactly right! Even 30 years ago, Democrat senators were colluding with America’s enemies to bring down Republicans.

Limbaugh has said the real scandal is that a “silent coup” is underway against President Trump. “There is the execution of an attempt at a peaceful coup,” said the radio talk show host last week. “A peaceful coup to oust Donald Trump is what we are witnessing. It’s been orchestrated by Obama and the Democrat Party. It’s that simple.”

Obama Collusion with Russia

The real collusion between our government and the Russians happened with Barack Hussein Obama. How far back do you have to go to find where Trump and Putin were allegedly buddies…I’ll tell you. It went all the way back to when Trump made a joke about Russia finding Hillary Clinton’s lost emails…the left grabbed onto it as though Trump was aligned with Russia. [Link] Anyone with a brain knew he was making a joke!

Remember when Clinton and Loretta Lynch met for a half hour on the plane before the AG was going to look into charging Hillary Clinton? And Schumer is calling for Sessions’ resignation, for colluding with Russians, but according to Schumer it was okay for Clinton and Loretta Lynch to meet, with the story they were talking about their grandchildren. Right…we all really believe that! These are two-faced hypocrites, and everyone knows it.

The Russian Ambassador is at the core of this entire false narrative promoted by the Democratic socialists and their leftist owned media. Sergey Kisylak has lamented that Washington, D.C. “has become lonely.” He has told associates that, “he is surprised how people who once sought his company were now trying to stay away.”

Remember that Kisylak was a frequent visitor to the Obama White House, according to the Daily Caller. Kisylak has always been a staunch defender of Russia and has at times attempted to undermine America’s foreign policy. [Link]

Kisylak’s alliance with the left is far greater than it was ever established with the right, but the left wants to destroy Trump with their claim that Trump and Russia colluded to win the election and steal it from Hillary Clinton. And there’s no evidence for this. They haven’t found any evidence, because there isn’t any and that’s because it couldn’t have happened!

Conclusion

Before he left office, Obama elevated insiders to political positions where they could not be fired. This was done in order to work from the inside to destroy Trump. The President needs to find a way to get rid of them. They’ve already done a great deal of damage, and now we’re hearing about massive wiretapping and spying on the new president and his administration.

At this point, Trump is probably eating his words. On November 11, 2016, he called Obama a “very good man,” and said he would seek his counsel in the future.

SEDITION, ESPIONAGE AND WIRETAPPING OF PRESIDENT TRUMP


NewsWithViews.com

Obama and Hillary surrogates put forth a false narrative of Russian collusion, but had no evidence to support the allegation. It appears that on a second attempt, the Obama Administration got a FISA court order to monitor communications of the Trump campaign, treasure hunting for evidence to support the false narrative and apparently, there is none. Now a backfire has put the Obama gang and their media lapdogs on the defensive. —J.D. Pendry

Wouldn’t it be nice to see the lying Socialist-loving media actually on the defensive and in a meltdown? What’s funny is they’ve actually put a bit of truth out in the past, and now they’re having to eat their own words. The NYTs asked Sean Spicer if there was proof of Obama’s wiretapping, and Sean said, “No,” but the NYTs itself printed the story on January 19, 2017.

Hopefully, our new AG go full bore after the former administration and their alleged illegal wiretapping!

Attorney General Sessions has not recused himself from an investigation into the latest wiretapping allegation and that just thrills me. Trump has turned the tables on the left and their phony Russian election collusion stories.

The Gateway Pundit supplied an entire list of those the Obama administration had wiretapped. However, Obama is denying he ever spied on Trump or his administration. Yet, he has his handler, communist-bred Valerie Jarrett, in his rented townhouse, only blocks from the White House, to lead the charge to topple the peoples’ choice for President. Jarrett, from within the White House may have launched a Watergate style attack on Trump during the election, and is now continuing her attack.

Levin Calls for Congressional Investigation

Even former NeverTrumper and pro-Constitutional Convention talk show host, Mark Levin, has said, “The evidence is overwhelming. This is not about President Trump’s tweet, it is about the Obama administration’s spying. The question isn’t whether it spied, we know they went to the FISA court twice. The question is, who did they spy on, and the extent of the spying. That is, the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, Trump surrogates, and the American people.”

Levin called Obama’s efforts, “police state” tactics, and suggested that Obama’s actions should be the target of a congressional investigation. He also stated that the theories about Russian interference in the presidential election were nothing more than conspiracy theories. Here’s the entire interview.

The Timeline

The first Obama FISA request came in June of 2016. In July, Trump made a joke about Hillary’s missing emails saying that maybe Russia can find them. This was the catalyst for the Socialist media to glom onto the fabrication that Russia hacked the election for Trump’s win.

In October, the Podesta emails kept flowing out from WikiLeaks, and new scandals were in the news daily. Of course, the Clinton campaign blamed Trump and the Russians, spewing the allegation that the Russians hacked the Democrat emails. The truth of the matter is Podesta’s emails were obtained because he fell for a phishing scam.

When Julian Assange was interviewed in London by Sean Hannity, he clearly stated that Russia was not responsible for the hacking of the DNC. He has no reason to lie. We have just seen that the CIA department has possession of Russia hacking malware that can be used to make it appear that Russia’s fingerprints were on the DNC hacks. The CIA was possibly the source of the “hacks” during the election cycle. They didn’t give information to WikiLeaks, because Assange said that the source came from within the DNC, but these hacks were essentially made for no reason other than to provide a cover story that Russian hacking helped Trump win the election.

In October, the second FISA request was made by Obama, focusing on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. Again, no evidence whatsoever is found, but they continued their spying, ostensibly for national security reasons.

These are police state tactics where the standing administration is actually monitoring an opposing presidential campaign with surveillance by the federal government. There should be media outrage, but the media is part of the problem.

In January of 2017, John McCain got into the act and turned over to the FBI the phony Buzzfeed intel “dossier” compiled by a foreign spy. All of this was false, and nothing could be verified; the info had been floating around DC for months and ignored.

In early January, Obama decided to expand the NSA sharing and to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intel agencies before applying privacy protections. Totally unheard of and dangerous, these reduced protections made it easier for intel on private citizens to be leaked or circulated.

Even worse is the NYT’s report on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies, FBI, CIA, NSA, and the Treasury Department are all monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Yes, multi-agencies were working on this false story to destroy the peoples’ new president and his administration.

In February, the irreplaceable, NSA Chief, General Michael Flynn, fell prey to the lies of the FBI transcripts. Obama’s Sally Yates, acting AG, is fired for insubordination. The General, the finest appointee besides Sessions in Trump’s administration, ends up resigning over allegedly misleading VP Pence, most likely inadvertently, about the content of this normal conversation with the Russian Ambassador.

My own belief is that globalist VP Pence wanted to be rid of the General. While in Germany days after Flynn’s resignation, Pence mentioned needlessly that Flynn was gone because of a “lack of trust.” Spicer had uttered the same words. I believe Pence is the core of why the General, who was a loyalist from the beginning, is gone.

Jeff Kredo is reporting that, “The CIA and Departments of Justice and Treasury are being sued by Judicial Watch for their role in leaking highly classified material as part of an effort to undermine the credibility of former Trump administration NSA Chief Michael Flynn, according to a recent announcement.”

Back to the timeline…later in February, the NYTs cited four current and former American officials in the Trump campaign who had “repeated contacts with Russian intel officials. Of course, it’s been denied by the Trump administration, and then the NYTs admitted there was no evidence of any collusion between the campaign and the Russians. Finally, the administration is raising questions about illegal intel leaks.

In March, the Bezos owned Washington Post reported that AG Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign, once at the Heritage Foundation, and once at a meeting in Sessions’ Senate office.

My previous article exposed just how many times the top Democratic Socialists have also met with the Russian ambassador as well as President Putin.

The Back Story

NSA Admiral Mike Rogers visited Trump Tower just 10 days after the election, and right after another Mike Rogers – the former House intelligence Chairman who retired after lying about the Benghazi fiasco – was kicked off the Trump transition team on intelligence. No one could figure out why he was kicked out. However, if you’ve read the Benghazi Brief you know how damaged, corrupted and untrustworthy Chairman Mike Rogers was – and he previously sat on the oversight gang of eight.

It appears that NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers didn’t want to participate in the spying scheme (Clapper, Brennan, etc.), of President Obama’s post presidency efforts to undermine Donald Trump. It could be that NSA Rogers didn’t want to visit Trump Tower until Chairman Rogers was gone.

The end result was Admiral Rogers was fired.

Andrew McCarthy Sums It Up

Former prosecutor, Andrew McCarthy summarized the story in William F. Buckley’s NeverTrump National Review.

McCarthy tells that Obama and his minions wanted criminal investigations of Trump’s top people, yet there was nothing criminal to find. Surprise, Surprise! So what they did next was convert the investigation into an intel probe under FISA (The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act). Parts of this story have been confirmed by the BBC, NYTs, and the McClatchy papers.

Normally a FISA surveillance is allowed by the court whenever the feds ask to spy on certain people, but not this time. The court refused permission to spy on Trump’s people according to the BBC. McCarthy commented that this is notable because, “the FISA court is notoriously solicitous of government requests to conduct national security surveillance.”

Not liking the refusals, the Obama administration came back during the final weeks of the campaign with a third request that didn’t specifically mention Trump. Then the request was granted by the court, BUT…reports from the Guardian and BBC don’t mention tapping of phones.

Of course, there have been denials by the Obama administration, which McCarthy calls “disingenuous on several levels.” Others have characterized them as a “non-denial denial.”

The Deep-Police-State

Newt Gingrich made the observation, “To think this happened to be done by some bureaucrats with no supervision, when you know, for example, that Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, spent an hour in secret with Bill Clinton just before they dropped charges against his wife. I mean all of this stuff smells to high heaven despite the best efforts of the elite media to cover it up.” He said, “These Obama wiretaps of our President are very serious, and very dangerous to our liberties.”

The very first FISA request on Trump Tower came after Bill Clinton, and Obama’s AG Loretta Lynch, had their private meeting on the plane. [Link]

Gingrich made it clear that Schumer is trying to derail this presidency by keeping Obama appointees in power. Schumer knows that Jeff Sessions is a man of integrity and character above reproach, but he attacks the finest in Trump’s administration.

FBI Director Comey

According to the NYTs, “The FBI director reportedly made the verbal request, to the Justice Department to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion that Obama ordered the tapping of Trump’s phones, senior American officials said on Sunday. They said Mr. Comey argued that the highly-charged claim is false and must be corrected, but the department has not released any such statement.”

Director Comey allegedly said, and it’s only supported by anonymous sources, for the DOJ to refute the President’s allegations, because, “it falsely insinuates that the FBI broke the law.”

So, it’s okay with the FBI to falsely insinuate that the President broke the law, but nobody had better make that same claim about them. Fake news? Maybe. We’re still wondering why Comey was retained.

Obama’s Community Organizers

Donald Trump’s latest tweets sent arrows into the MSM and Obama’s Organizing for America (OFA).

Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says OFA is an army of agitators 30,000 strong who will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency, and the ex-president “will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.” Sperry writes that the ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the incoming administration through a network of leftist nonprofits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (currently more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. OFA’s IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate OFA has 32,525 volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their foundation office near the White House.

Obama has moved some of his top players into the OFA. He has even moved his co-president and handler, Valerie Jarrett, into his rented home.

Conclusion

Here’s the meat of this whole filthy deep-state spying sedition…the story is not the Trump campaign. The story is not the Russians hacked the election. The story is not the Trump campaign was working with the Russians. The story is the effort by Barack Hussein Obama — and the Democrat Party, and the New York Times, and Washington Post, and Politico — to sabotage and destroy the Trump presidency, and Monica Crowley knows this all too personally.

Crowley was set to be the senior director of communications at the National Security Council before a hit job by CNN destroyed her. She was recently interviewed by Sean Hannity (see the vidio below) and said the following:

Look, what happened to me was a despicable straight up political hit job. There is a very toxic and increasingly poisonous atmosphere of personal destruction in DC and the media. It’s always been there, but now it’s on a whole different level.

The attack on me was a test. What happened to me, what happened to General Flynn, what is happening to AG Sessions and others, is all of a piece. There is a very dangerous and very effective destabilization campaign under way against this President, his administration, and his agenda. What I hope the President and his senior aides understand is that these forces are not just looking to delegitimize him, they want to personally destroy him, destroy his presidency, and they would like to see the man in prison.

They are out for blood, and the reason they must destroy him is because Donald Trump is an alien organism that has been injected into the body politic by the American people to reform it. He must not be allowed to succeed. They want him and his people rejected from the system, just like any alien organism. He must not be allowed to succeed, and I hope everyone around him understands that this is a war, and they will not end until they destroy the President of the United States.

David Brock and other organizations have already raised tens of millions of dollars for an impeachment process. They want “jail to the chief.” We are so far beyond normal politics. We are in a very dangerous moment. While President Trump is a very strong leader and a man of strong constitution, and he was able to survive all of this during the campaign and get elected president, I hope to God he is strong enough to withstand the monolithic opposition, a federal bureaucracy that is completely out to undermine him every day, and the intelligence community that is engaged in this as well.

If Trump succeeds, the country changes for the good, and the globalists do not want that to happen.

Please pray continually for our President, his administration, and our country.

Look, what happened to me was a despicable straight up political hit job. There is a very toxic and increasingly poisonous atmosphere of personal destruction in DC and the media. It’s always been there, but now it’s on a whole different level.

The attack on me was a test. What happened to me, what happened to General Flynn, what is happening to AG Sessions and others, is all of a piece. There is a very dangerous and very effective destabilization campaign under way against this President, his administration, and his agenda. What I hope the President and his senior aides understand is that these forces are not just looking to delegitimize him, they want to personally destroy him, destroy his presidency, and they would like to see the man in prison.

They are out for blood, and the reason they must destroy him is because Donald Trump is an alien organism that has been injected into the body politic by the American people to reform it. He must not be allowed to succeed. They want him and his people rejected from the system, just like any alien organism. He must not be allowed to succeed, and I hope everyone around him understands that this is a war, and they will not end until they destroy the President of the United States.

David Brock and other organizations have already raised tens of millions of dollars for an impeachment process. They want “jail to the chief.” We are so far beyond normal politics. We are in a very dangerous moment. While President Trump is a very strong leader and a man of strong constitution, and he was able to survive all of this during the campaign and get elected president, I hope to God he is strong enough to withstand the monolithic opposition, a federal bureaucracy that is completely out to undermine him every day, and the intelligence community that is engaged in this as well.

If Trump succeeds, the country changes for the good, and the globalists do not want that to happen.

Please pray continually for our President, his administration, and our country.

THE LEFT’S ATTEMPTED SABOTAGE AND DESTRUCTION OF AG SESSIONS

March 9, 2017

Protect me from the plots of the wicked, from mobs of evil men. They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim cruel words like arrows. They are quick to spread their shameless lies; they destroy good men with cowardly slander. —Psalm 64:2-4

Fake News, Fake News, Fake News!

AG Sessions is the latest to be under attack for speaking to the Ambassador from Russia. The former Alabama Senator should never have recused himself from the investigation of the phony Russian connection to the election. Neither should Sessions have recused himself during the confirmation hearings of a future investigation into Bill and Hillary Clinton’s affairs. With all the squawking by the democratic socialists, the liberal media, and the Soros/Obama organizers, they’ve latched onto this phony Russian involvement in the election story and are pumping it for all it’s worth.

The media’s lies are that Putin loves Trump, Trump loves Putin, and they got together to make sure Trump won the election via Russian interference…all lies. Again, media is allowed to lie with impunity because of the 1964 Supreme Court decision, NYTs v. Sullivan.

The entire Trump administration simply must not cave to any of this, and they need to completely ignore these rabble rousers. The first to fall was, of course, the brilliant and knowledgeable General Michael Flynn, a loss to this administration that will never be replaced with anyone as capable or experienced as Flynn. I really believe this was President Trump’s first and worst mistake. Letting the talented Flynn resign instead of fighting the media lies was a big mistake. He should have told both Pence and Flynn to ride it out and get back to work. Flynn’s replacement, General McMaster, is nothing but a CFR globalist clone.

AG Jeff Sessions is probably the finest Christian man we’ve had in politics for decades. Not only was he re-elected four times by Alabamians, but he was beloved by the citizenry, and that includes all races. He has spent five decades as a champion of civil rights.

There is no way the media or any investigation can prove that Trump or any of his administration have worked with the Russians to win the election. Now that AG Sessions has recused himself, an Obama lackey is in charge of the investigation into these false allegations, and that leads us to the real Trojan Horse.

The Internal Trojan Horse

There are many Obama appointee holdovers on the National Security Council affecting our military operations. There are a handful of Obama appointee holdovers at the CIA who were groomed to oppose President Trump by John Brennan and Mike Morell, both of whom repeatedly lied about Benghazi.

There are Obama holdovers in NSA, DHS, EPA, and the FBI, including some members of the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, ISNA, MAS, etc., who are opposing President Trump. The nine personnel who criminally released the content of General Mike Flynn’s telephone conversations with the Russian Ambassador to the press were Obama holdovers…another reason Trump should have told them to go pound sand and kept General Flynn. Think I’m angry about it, you dang well bet I am…and my arrows all point to VP Pence. Flynn should definitely still be in the administration! The loss was catastrophic for the nation.

Socialist Democrats Lie Again

Democrats were aghast after learning Attorney General Jeff Sessions met twice, as a senator, before his confirmation as an AG, with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. without telling Congress at his confirmation hearing – but it turns out Sergey Kislyak is no stranger to lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

The Russian Ambassador was seated with the democrats at the Joint Sessions of Congress meeting the other night. He is a good friend of…here it comes, Chuckie Schumer! And guess who else he’s met and enjoyed…a picture is worth a thousand words.

Funny thing too, Senator Nancy Pelosi claimed she’d never met with this Russian Ambassador, but in fact, she had, and she met with other high level Russian dignitaries. [Link]

Then you have Senator Clair McCaskill claiming she never met with the Russian Ambassador, but she apparently forgot about her tweets in January of 2013 where she stated she, along with several other democrats, was off to meet with him. [Link]

During Obama’s reign, the longtime Russian ambassador met with seven Democratic senators in a single sit-down in 2013. Ambassador Sergey Kisylak appeared at the Obama White House at least 22 times…running a silent coup on Trump.

As House Speaker Paul Ryan put it last week, “We meet with ambassadors all the time.”

Sessions Rejects Democrat Claims

The central issue dogging Sessions is not so much that he met with the ambassador, but that he claimed during his confirmation hearing he had no “communications” with Russian officials during his time as a Trump campaign surrogate. In a press conference, though, Sessions rejected claims he misled Congress and suggested he was answering in the context of campaign-related discussions, which he maintains he never had.

But some Sessions critics nevertheless portrayed meetings with Kislyak, whose country was accused of meddling in the 2016 campaign, as a rare summit, particularly for a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee like Sessions.

And no, Jeff Sessions didn’t perjure himself. It’s not even a close call. All of this is bunk, or as Limbaugh calls it, Barbara Streisand (B.S.).

Democrat Involvement with Russia

The Russian link to Obama is the real investigation. When Obama said to Russian Prime Minister, Medvedev, “You tell Vladimir, I’ll have much more flexibility after the election,” about reducing America’s nuclear stockpile, anyone with a brain knew what was going on. The question arises again, what party is in bed with the Russians? Sessions is certainly not alone. The democrats love Russian dignitaries is an open book.

Let’s look at history, because it’s worth remembering the reprehensible behavior of Senator Ted Kennedy in 1984. While Senator Al Franken and other Democrats have the vapors over a truthful, complete, and correct answer AG Jeff Sessions gave in his confirmation hearing, it’s worth remembering the reprehensible behavior of Senator Ted Kennedy in 1984.

This behavior didn’t involve launching a vehicle into a tidal channel while drunk. (The Bridge at Chappaquiddick by Jack Olsen) This reprehensible behavior was collusion with America’s most deadly enemy in an effort to defeat Ronald Reagan’s reelection.

The memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy (P.J. Media):

Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. “The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” the memorandum stated. “These issues, according to the senator, (Kennedy) will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign.”

Among the promises, Kennedy made the Soviets was that he would ensure that the television networks gave the Soviet leader primetime slots to speak directly to the American people, thus undermining Reagan’s framing of the sinister nature of the USSR. Even then, the Democrats had the power to collude with the legacy media. Kennedy also promised to help Andropov penetrate the American message with his Soviet agitprop.

Exactly right! Even 30 years ago, Democrat senators were colluding with America’s enemies to bring down Republicans.

Limbaugh has said the real scandal is that a “silent coup” is underway against President Trump. “There is the execution of an attempt at a peaceful coup,” said the radio talk show host last week. “A peaceful coup to oust Donald Trump is what we are witnessing. It’s been orchestrated by Obama and the Democrat Party. It’s that simple.”

Obama Collusion with Russia

The real collusion between our government and the Russians happened with Barack Hussein Obama. How far back do you have to go to find where Trump and Putin were allegedly buddies…I’ll tell you. It went all the way back to when Trump made a joke about Russia finding Hillary Clinton’s lost emails…the left grabbed onto it as though Trump was aligned with Russia. [Link] Anyone with a brain knew he was making a joke!

Remember when Clinton and Loretta Lynch met for a half hour on the plane before the AG was going to look into charging Hillary Clinton? And Schumer is calling for Sessions’ resignation, for colluding with Russians, but according to Schumer it was okay for Clinton and Loretta Lynch to meet, with the story they were talking about their grandchildren. Right…we all really believe that! These are two-faced hypocrites, and everyone knows it.

The Russian Ambassador is at the core of this entire false narrative promoted by the Democratic socialists and their leftist owned media. Sergey Kisylak has lamented that Washington, D.C. “has become lonely.” He has told associates that, “he is surprised how people who once sought his company were now trying to stay away.”

Remember that Kisylak was a frequent visitor to the Obama White House, according to the Daily Caller. Kisylak has always been a staunch defender of Russia and has at times attempted to undermine America’s foreign policy. [Link]

Kisylak’s alliance with the left is far greater than it was ever established with the right, but the left wants to destroy Trump with their claim that Trump and Russia colluded to win the election and steal it from Hillary Clinton. And there’s no evidence for this. They haven’t found any evidence, because there isn’t any and that’s because it couldn’t have happened!

Conclusion

Before he left office, Obama elevated insiders to political positions where they could not be fired. This was done in order to work from the inside to destroy Trump. The President needs to find a way to get rid of them. They’ve already done a great deal of damage, and now we’re hearing about massive wiretapping and spying on the new president and his administration.

At this point, Trump is probably eating his words. On November 11, 2016, he called Obama a “very good man,” and said he would seek his counsel in the future.

LOSERS LAMENT


If you’ve ever participated in competitive sports, you know the losers lament.  It was the umps, the refs, the other team cheated, it was deflated balls… . Never is there a look in the mirror to determine how bad you or your team actually sucked on a particular day or for the whole season.  There is a loser’s mindset also.  Its view in the mirror says I am so much better than everyone else, so much smarter, so much more talented, everyone loves me, and wants me to win, so it is very unlikely that I will ever lose unless they cheat.

There is also the bench warmer’s prayer.  If the game is tight and the battle tough, the benchwarmer prays, “Lord, please don’t let them hit the ball to me.”  Sort of reminds me of the Republican side of Congress.  A note to them, winners want the damn ball and they aim to deliver when they get it.  Otherwise they become tomorrow’s losers.

Ronald Reagan skunked Jimmah Carter.  It was a landside of epic proportions.  If you scan the news and polls, Reagan was not supposed to win – had no chance.  The media and pundits did not give him a chance and establishment Republicans didn’t want him either – many of them blamed him for Ford’s loss to Carter.  The third party candidate was blamed for the loss although analysis showed that had Carter picked up every vote, highly unlikely, he would have still lost by 100 Electoral College votes.  It wasn’t the third party.  It was a bad economy, double digit inflation, the Arab oil embargo, turn your thermostat down and wear sweater speeches, and poor handling of the Iran hostage crisis not to mention Jimmah and his crew ushering in a “moderate religious leader.”  Jimmah lost because he failed at being President – a leader.

Most memorable in recent times, Al Gore lost to George Bush.  When the Supreme Court ended the never ending Florida recount, Bush became in the eyes of the press and Democrats “selected not elected.”  Although recounts completed afterwards demonstrated even if every vote was recounted again Bush still won.  Still the meme of an illegitimate presidency spread far and wide through the media and hourly attacks across the liberal media were common – and it continued right up to the end. Bush never pushed back against the media.

Next up, Vietnam War hero John Kerry and his trusty sidekick John Edwards lost to Bush.  Kerry wanted to concede and Edwards wanted to do a Gore 2.0.  Bush lost this one because of the Swift Boat Veterans attack on the war hero.  Because it was clear that Bush was not a brilliant and sophisticated as John and John, he could not have possibly won unless the Swift Boaters exposed in their view his less than stellar service record.  So for the next four years, the implied label of illegitimacy still hung around the neck of President Bush – and the media cried endlessly about swift boating among other attacks resulting in his approval rate being in the toilet.

McCain and Romney lost to Obama and for a myriad of reasons including Bush’s low approval rating.  The bottom line however, is that they were poor candidates.  Truthfully, both were hold your nose votes for me and millions like me stayed home.

And now, present day.  Proven is the adage that no matter how much things change, they remain the same.  Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, oh my, what an election year it was.  This may sound familiar.  According to the media, the pundits, and the political consulting class Trump had no chance.  It was a foregone conclusion that Hillary would win.  Establishment Republicans also did not believe he could win nor did they want Trump.  Along came election night and Hillary along with all of those talking heads and establishment Republicans got a whuppin.  There was wailing and gnashing of teeth.  Panic across America.  Trump could not have possibly won the election.   It had nothing to do with the failed Clinton candidacy.  As we all now know, the Russians did it.
