  • Freshman Democrats Turn on Pelosi Over Border Wall, Seek Deal with Trump

    Breitbart ^ | January 15, 2019 | MATTHEW BOYLE
    Several freshman Democrat members of the new House of Representatives majority have turned on Speaker Nancy Pelosi in her steadfast refusal to fund President Donald Trump’s planned wall along the U.S. border with Mexico and are instead seeking for Democrats to cut a deal on the wall with Trump. The ongoing partial government shutdown, which affects a quarter of the federal government and is now the longest shutdown in the history of the United States, began late last year just before Christmas. It dragged through New Years into the new Congress, and Pelosi–after she won the Speakership vote after fending...

    But the gesture — which seemed to entertain the Clemson team — didn’t sit well with Bush, who took to Twitter on the subject around midnight, saying Trump should’ve done more for the team. “Just when you think you’ve seen it all, @ClemsonFB you guys deserve better you are world champs and this is the honor you receive from our nations leader!?” he tweeted. “This is disrespectful on so many levels, just a huge slap in the face after that kind of performance! SMH!”

    Trump says they bought "1,000 burgers" for Clemson. "It was piled up a mile high," he said. FACT CHECK: At two inches each, a thousand burgers would not reach one mile high.

    Shortened title. Full title: STUNNING LIST: 35 Times the FBI “Deviated from Standard Practice” or Committed Crimes in Effort to Exonerate Hilary and Indict Trump The FBI leadership under the Obama Administration took many actions that deviated from standard practice [i.e. were corrupt and criminal] in their efforts to exonerate Hillary from her crimes and then spy and frame candidate and then President Trump. Today current members of the FBI are embarrassed to even turn on their TV’s as a result. Time magazine of all places reported recently about the many efforts the FBI took related to Hillary exoneration and...

    President Trump on Sunday night mocked Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos as "Jeff Bozo" in a tweet slamming The Washington Post, which Bezos owns. "So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post," Trump tweeted. "Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!" Trump's tweets came shortly after The National Enquirer came out with the latest in a series of articles about Bezos's divorce from his wife of 25 years. American...

    It's been an interesting weekend.  We learned a lot. I have long asserted that the FBI was out to take Trump down right from day one. It appears more and more that that is exactly what has and is happening. Carter Page was a known FBI asset.  He helped them in the past. As a reward, FBI used him as a ruse to spy on Trump, fraudulently obtaining a FISA warrant to allow the FBI to collect collateral information. As in spy on Trump. Comey wanted to take down Trump. Nearly a year ago I wrote this: Comey was after...
  • Lawless Federal Judges Are Winning Their War against the Trump Administration

    National Review ^ | January 14, 2019 | David French
    Sunday’s injunction against Trump-administration religious-freedom rules is nothing but judicial #Resistance. It’s déjà vu all over again. A federal judge has blocked a lawful Trump-administration policy, essentially enshrining the Obama administration’s policy choices in social-justice granite. The practical result is a judicial equivalent of a one-way ratchet. The pattern is clear: Step One: The Obama administration uses its executive power to implement a progressive policy (such as DACA or the contraceptive mandate). Step Two: The Trump administration uses its executive power to repeal the Obama-administration action and implement a more conservative policy. Step Three: Progressive plaintiffs file suit in a...

    Democrat leaders refused to participate in a working lunch with President Donald Trump on Jan. 15, instead boycotting the meeting amid the ongoing partial government shutdown. ADVERTISING Democrats summarily rejected invitations for the lunch, the White House said. The president still held the lunch, meeting with nine House Republicans: Reps. Susan Brooks (Ind.), Rodney Davis (Ill.), Doug Collins (Ga.), John Katko (N.Y.), Brad Wenstrup (Ohio), Anthony Gonzalez (Ohio), Jodey Arrington (Texas), Van Taylor (Texas), and Clay Higgins (La.).

    Monday night the Clemson Football National Champions made a visit to the White House where President Trump hosted them for dinner in the State Dining Room. The President personally paid for a lavish spread of fast food from a variety of establishments. “The President wanted to host a fun event to celebrate the College Football National Champion Clemson Tigers. Because the Democrats refuse to negotiate on border security, much of the residence staff at the White House is furloughed – so the President is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone’s favorite fast foods,” Press Secretary...

    At this moment the race for the Democratic nomination in 2020 appears to be completely wide open, but there is one potential candidate lurking in the shadows that could change everything. For a moment, I would like you to imagine what a perfect presidential candidate for the Democrats in 2020 would look like. In this politically correct era, it would help if the candidate was a woman, and it would definitely be a plus if she could appeal to key groups of minority voters. Being a hero to the LGBT community would be important for any Democratic candidate, and it...

    President Trump hosted a border security meeting at the White House Tuesday afternoon. In an effort to make progress on the government shutdown, Trump invited Republican and Democrat lawmakers to attend with ideas. Not a single Democrat showed up. Their leaders, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, were also missing. “As Senator Schumer and Speaker Pelosi refuse to negotiate, President Donald J. Trump and his team are working hard to find solutions to solve the humanitarian and national security crisis at the border and reopen the government. The President has a proposal on the table...

    William Barr, President Trump's pick to serve as his next attorney general, said he would not fire special counsel Robert Mueller if President Trump ordered him to do so without good cause. Sen. Chris Coons (D-Conn.), who asked Barr about how he would respond, tied his question to Watergate scandal when the prosecutor investing Watergate resigned instead of following then-President Richard Nixon's order for him to fire the special counsel investigating the matter. "Most famously when directed by president Nixon to fire the special counsel, the prosecutor investigating watergate, Richard Nixon resigned, as we all know. If those directions were...

    The Washington Slimes (Now part of MSMFake News) ^ | January 15, 2019 | Gabriella Muñoz, Trump Concern Desk
    President Trump floated the idea of withdrawing the U.S. from NATO among his officials several times last year, The New York Times reported late Monday night. Unnamed officials, both current and former, told The Times that Mr. Trump said he didn’t see the point of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and viewed it as a drain on U.S. resources. The complaint came around the time of the last NATO summit in July 2018. The president was very vocal in the days leading up to — and during — the summit about his criticism on NATO burden sharing. He repeatedly called...

    Two years into his administration, POTUS Donald Trump remains under siege by special counsel Robert Mueller and the Deep State as establishment politicians, the intelligence community, and the “mainstream” media put up relentless, unprecedented resistance to his policies on a daily basis. While the president has so far managed to hold his own, replacing several Washington “insiders” who were hand-picked to undermine his White House with people he trusts, new details have emerged providing a glimpse into the powerful forces aligned against him.

    Most Americans believe President Donald Trump’s critics are trying to use special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to delegitimize Trump’s 2016 election victory, according to a new poll. Mueller is leading the investigation to probe any links between the Russian government and Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, but many Americans think the investigation has been politicized.

    A new study by a conservative media watchdog group concludes that the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts have covered President Trump with negative spin 90 percent of the time, but claims the coverage has done little to sway the public's overall opinion of his administration. Media Research Center senior editor Rich Noyes analyzed every episode of “NBC Nightly News,” ABC’s “World News Tonight” and “CBS Evening News” since Trump’s Jan. 20, 2017 inauguration. Noyes noted that the “tone of coverage remains incessantly hostile” and was only positive 10 percent of the time.

    Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy? In only five more days of the already-“longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more. Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off? Well, in bureaucratese, a layoff is called a RIF – a Reduction in Force, and of course, it comes with a slew of civil service protections. But, if the guidelines are followed,...

    American officials said during their discussions they relayed Trump's commitment to addressing trade deficit concerns and resolving structural issues affecting trade between the two countries. (please see the full article, at the link) I really don't see what Trump is talking about, but I do not have access to our trade delegation either. Maybe he is seeing something different. What I am seeing, is we just set the worst trade deficit in all recorded history, with China. The worst ever. Worst. Between any two countries. Ever. It is not improving. It is getting worse. I am all for Trump, but...
