    Consider this a copy of Donald Trump’s Tuesday tweet in EO form. Remember this? …..This action is taken effective immediately, but may also be used retroactively for destruction or vandalism already caused. There will be no exceptions!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 23, 2020 Late yesterday, Trump formalized it into an executive order, but added a new provision. Local and state governments that don’t act to protect federal monuments can expect to kiss some of their federal grant money goodbye — at least to the extent Trump controls those pursestrings: President Donald Trump on Friday ordered the Justice Department...

    “If the question is whether there's been an adequate search, what difference does it make what the intent was or reasons for using a private server, or Hillary Clinton’s or anyone else’s understanding of State’s record searching obligations?” Judge Robert Wilkins asked. A panel of federal appeals judges were doubtful Tuesday of what additional information could be gleaned about Hillary Clinton’s emails if the former secretary of state were to sit for a deposition in a public records case. On Tuesday, Judicial Watch attorney Ramona Cotca told the court that the group had remaining questions over the handling of the...

    “A small number of religious communities, specific churches and specific synagogues, are unfortunately not paying attention to this guidance even though it’s so widespread,” the New York Democrat said Friday at his daily press briefing. “I want to say to all those who are preparing for the potential of religious services this weekend: If you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services,” he added.

    How a handful of Democratic activists created alarming, but bogus data sets to scare local and state officials into making rash, economy-killing mandates. As U.S. state and local officials halt the economy and quarantine their communities over the Wuhan virus crisis, one would hope our leaders were making such major decisions based on well-sourced data and statistical analysis. That is not the case.A scan of statements made by media, state governors, local leaders, county judges, and more show many relying on the same source, an online mapping tool called COVID Act Now. The website says it is “built to...

    Judicial Watch today released 80 pages of new emails recently found by the FBI that further document how former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her unsecure, non-government email to transmit classified and other sensitive government information. The documents include 11 new Clinton email documents. The emails include an email sent by Mrs. Clinton a month after the Benghazi terrorist attack referencing a “Benghazi security” issue. The emails also include talking points, which are redacted, for a meeting with President Obama. (This is the second release from the batch of Clinton emails the FBI inexplicably found late last year.) The...

    DEMOCRATIC HOUSE UPSET. Democrat Kathleen Martins scored an upset victory Tuesday in a New Hampshire House special election in Hooksett. In the first state election since the New Hampshire primary, the self-described educator defeated Republican Elliot “Alu” Axelman, a member of the Hooksett Budget Committee and a supporter of the Free State Project, in the heavily Republican town to succeed the late Rep. Dick Marple, who died in December. The final unofficial vote count was 1,000 for Martins and 961 for Axelman.

    U.S. State Department ^ | 3/9/2020 | U.S. State Department
    Passengers on Cruise Ships U.S. citizens, particularly travelers with underlying health conditions, should not travel by cruise ship. CDC notes increased risk of infection of COVID-19 in a cruise ship environment. In order to curb the spread of COVID-19, many countries have implemented strict screening procedures that have denied port entry rights to ships and prevented passengers from disembarking. In some cases, local authorities have permitted disembarkation but subjected passengers to local quarantine procedures. While the U.S. government has evacuated some cruise ship passengers in recent weeks, repatriation flights should not be relied upon as an option for U.S. citizens...

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration has temporarily shelved a proposed rule change that would further restrict American sales to Huawei, the Chinese telecom giant, after some officials in the Defense Department and other agencies argued that the measure, which was intended to protect national security, could actually undermine it, according to people familiar with the matter. The rule change, which multiple government agencies were reviewing, would close a loophole that allowed technology companies like Intel and Micron to continue shipping chips, software and other products to Huawei despite a ban that prevented the Chinese company from buying some American products....

    Here’s news from the fight in Spain against the coming totalitarianism. The Spanish daily El Pais gives background: A policy from the far-right Spanish political party Vox is causing heated debate over education and the rights of children. Dubbed by Vox as the “parental pin,” the policy gives parents the right to stop their children from attending complementary workshops organized during school hours. The measure means that schools will need to ask for parents’ permission to give “talks, workshops or activities with an ideological or moral leaning against their convictions,” according to the text of policy. This includes talks on...

    As House Democrats invited Ivy League shrews to publicly grind their Trump-hating axe during Wednesday’s disastrous impeachment charade, President Trump returned home after confronting our allies again about their lagging financial support of NATO. The stale pact turns 70 this year and like too many Boomers these days, NATO is out of fresh ideas and still listening to worn tracks of “Back in the U.S.S.R.” while the rest of the world is listening to Drake. Also like so many Boomers, NATO members have made financial promises they won’t keep, stacking up IOUs for someone else to pay and hoping no...

    I ran across this interview of Ronald Reagan. It done in March of 1975. It's interesting for a few shows him getting ready to start his push for the Presidency which happened a few years later. But there was one very discouraging thing he said. Starting about the 5:15 mark he started talking about what we call today the deep state. A permanent employee class that actually determines policy in the United States. This was almost 45 years ago! It explains WHY today we've come to where we are and what Donald Trump is up against.

    Rudy Giuliani says US diplomats were doing the bidding of George Soros in Ukraine, in interview with Glenn Beck Rudy Giuliani told Glenn Beck during an exclusive interview that U.S. diplomats were doing the bidding of billionaire philanthropist George Soros in Ukraine in a "massive pay-for-play" scheme that included falsifying evidence against President Donald Trump. Giuliani, the president's personal attorney, spoke to Beck on his program Wednesday about the claims being made against him by Democrats in their ongoing impeachment inquiry. "The anti-corruption bureau is a contradiction," said Giuliani about the bureau set up in Ukraine to root out corruption....
