Trump Vows to Sign Coronovirus Stimulus Executive Orders to Help Americans “If Democrats Continue to Hold Relief Hostage”

August 8, 2020

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump threatened to take coronavirus relief into his own hands “if Democrats continue to hold relief hostage.”

Trump said if coronavirus negotiations continued to stall, he would sign an executive order deferring the payroll tax until the end of the year, starting July 1 retroactively, and extend enhanced unemployment benefits.

He did not state how much those benefits would be — $600 per week was given in additional federal benefits under the last relief bill but Republicans have proposed cutting that to $200 per week.

The president also said his executive order would defer student loan payments and forgive interest “until further notice.”

Trump said lawyers were drawing up the executive order currently and “it could be by the end of the week” that he signs it. He said, “probably we get sued” but he isn’t worried about the legality because “everything gets sued.”

Trump earlier in the week first floated the idea of taking executive action to halt evictions and suspend payroll taxes. Trump has long pushed the idea that a payroll tax cut would spur hiring.

In July, the president said he told Republicans they could drop the idea of a cut to the payroll tax, the tax that finances Social Security and Medicare, from the next coronavirus relief bill because Democrats wouldn’t allow it.

“Based on that I told Republicans, I said I think a payroll tax would be good, but we’re not going to get it from Democrats. So you still need Democrat votes. I would like to see it but if we’re not going to get their votes, I guess we have to go on to the next thing,” he said.

Lawmakers ended a week of negotiations on coronavirus relief without a deal Friday, or even a clear path forward, amid growing concerns that talks may collapse altogether.

Both parties had a self-imposed Friday deadline. Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said Thursday that if they missed it, there’s “no sense” in continuing discussion.

“I’ve become extremely doubtful that we’ll be able to make a deal if it goes well beyond Friday,” said Meadows.

The impasse in negotiations puts at risk potentially trillions of dollars in aid for families, businesses and the U.S. economy, including a fresh round of $1,200 stimulus checks, extra unemployment aid for millions of unemployed Americans, $100 billion to help reopen schools and relief for cash-strapped state and local governments.

“A lot of people are going to be evicted, but I’m going to stop it because I’ll do it myself if I have to,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “I have a lot of powers with respect to executive orders, and we’re looking at that very seriously right now.”

The House passed its Heroes Act in May, a $3 trillion bill that included a clean extension of the $600 per week federal unemployment benefits, more money for state and local governments and expanded qualification for the stimulus checks, among other Democratic priorities.

The Senate revealed its own HEALS Act, a scaled-down, $1 trillion relief bill that included $200 per week in federal unemployment benefits and $105 billion for schools to assist in reopening.

Whether to extend the supplemental $600 a week in jobless aid has proven to be a key sticking point in negotiations. Democrats have split, some saying the $600 number is a nonstarter and some saying the number is negotiable. Republicans have said $600 is too high and disincentivizes returning to work, as many make more collecting unemployment than they did in wages.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday that Democrats were willing to compromise at $2 trillion for the fourth stimulus package, but that the Trump administration had rejected her offer.

Pelosi, D-Calif., said Friday that Democrats have been “mightily trying to find common ground.”

“We’ll take it down a trillion, if you add a trillion,” Pelosi said Friday. “They said absolutely not. Then we would be in range.”

It appears that the Democrats on Capitol Hill have learned nothing since the first contentious Coronavirus Stimulus Package was passed.

Among other “important matters” shoved in the last bill by Pelosi and the Dems was $35 million for the John F. Kennedy Performing Arts Center.

The Speaker of the House also got caught attempting to put abortion funding in the first Coronavirus Relief Bill.

It turned out that was just the tip of the iceberg.

How tone deaf are Pelosi and the Democrats?

Did they actually believe that average Americans who are still out of work because of the “invisible scourge”, as President Trump once called the Coronavirus, would see ANOTHER pork-laden bill designed to pay their special interest groups as being beneficial?

If so, then they are a bunch of idiots, just as Senator John Kennedyhas so accurately described them before.

There are average Americans out here in Realityville that still need help paying their bills and feeding their families while they are off work due to the Coronavirus.

That is why the President has been pushing so hard for a bill which will provide immediate relief to both those American who have been working through all of the pandemic and those who have not been able t work because of it.

What Pelosi and the Dems are proving once again is that they do not give a rat’s hindquarters about average Americans.

Their number one priority is filling their own bank accounts and the bank accounts of their “friends”, i.e., those special interest groups and companies which they have a financial interest in.

I guarantee you, if you look at the investors lists of those wind and solar energy companies who sprang up out of nowhere during the Obama Administration, you will see several Capitol Hill Democrats and/or their family members name listed.

It is amazing to me that after almost four years of trying and failing to remove Trump from office via impeachment and not passing anything of significance of behalf of average Americans, that the Democrats in the House of Representatives and the Senate remain oblivious to the wants and the needs of average Americans, the very voters whom they always erroneously claim to represent.

If they don’t cooperate with the Republicans and pass some actual relief for average Americans during this difficult and scary time, the President is well within his power to writing some Executive Orders to provide some much needed relief to American citizens.

And, if Pelosi and the Dems dig in their heels and refuse to work something out with the Republicans, I would not be surprised to see a march on Washington reminiscent of the scenes in the movies of the villagers chasing the Frankenstein Monster with torches and pitchforks.

As the tightening Presidential Election Polls are showing, he anti-American Far Left Democrats have “awakened a sleeping giant”, as Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto lamented following the attack on Pearl Harbor which started World War II.

If was the same anger which cost the Democrats the Presidency in 2016.

If they thought that we were angry then, they haven’t seen anything, yet.

Biden Tries to Walk Back Diversity Comparison of Black and Latino Communities as His “Filter” Slips Away

August 7, 2020

Biden hold my beer

FoxNews.com reports that

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden attempted late Thursday to walk back remarks he made favorably comparing the diversity of the Latino community to that of the Black community.

“Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all.

“Throughout my career,” he continued, “I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community. It’s this diversity that makes our workplaces, communities, and country a better place. My commitment to you is this: I will always listen, I will never stop fighting for the African American community and I will never stop fighting for a more equitable future.”

Biden raised eyebrows twice this week over remarks he made during an interview that aired at the convention of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ).

BIDEN RAISES EYEBROWS WITH REMARK CONTRASTING AFRICAN AMERICAN, LATINO DIVERSITY

In the full interview, broadcast Thursday, Biden contrasted the Black and Latino communities, saying “unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”

Fox News reached out earlier Thursday to representatives for the NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus and Black Lives Matter to see if they had any response to Biden’s initial remarks. They did not respond.

Later in the day, Biden repeated those remarks while speaking virtually to the National Association of Latino Elected Officials conference. In that appearance, he vowed that if elected, his administration will reflect “the full diversity of this nation” as well as “the full diversity of the Latino communities.”

“Now what I mean [by] full diversity [is] unlike the African American community and many other communities, you’re from everywhere,” Biden explained. “You’re from Europe, from the tip of South America, all the way to our border in Mexico, and the Caribbean. And [of] different backgrounds, different ethnicities, but all Latinos. We’re gonna get a chance to do that if we win in November.”

Biden’s tweets did not address his tense exchange with CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett over whether the former vice president has taken a cognitive test.

“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man. That’s like saying you, before you got on this program, you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?” Biden told Barnett, who is Black.

Both sets of remarks were blasted by critics, including President Trump, who said Biden’s remarks “totally disparaged and insulted the Black community.”

Why does everyone continue to be surprised when poor old demented Joe Biden says something racist?

Back in February of 2007, Delaware Senator Joe Biden described his future boss, contender for the Democrat Presidential Nomination, Barack Hussein Obama, in the following manner…

I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.

Liberals’ arrogance often lead them to reveal their own intolerance.

Sleepy Joe became chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the late 1980s and as Delaware Senator supported a crime bill in 1994, saying at the time that his aim was to control violent crime.

Thomas Frank, a Liberal, wrote an op ed for The Guardian back on April 15, 2016, about the unexpected results of the 1994 Crime Bill. In the article he wrote that…

…what is most shocking in our current journo-historical understanding of the Clinton years is the idea that the mass imprisonment of people of color was an “unintended consequence” of the 1994 crime bill, to quote the New York Daily News’s paraphrase of Hillary Clinton. This is flatly, glaringly false, as the final, ugly chapter of the crime bill story confirms.

Back in the early 1990s, and although they were chemically almost identical, crack and powder cocaine were regarded very differently by the law. The drug identified with black users (crack) was treated as though it were 100 times as villainous as the same amount of cocaine, a drug popular with affluent professionals. This “now-notorious 100-to-one” sentencing disparity, as the New York Times put it, had been enacted back in 1986, and the 1994 crime law instructed the US Sentencing Commission to study the subject and adjust federal sentencing guidelines as it saw fit.

The Sentencing Commission duly recommended that the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity be abolished, largely because (as their lengthy report on the subject put it) “The 100-to-1 crack cocaine to powder cocaine quantity ratio is a primary cause of the growing disparity between sentences for black and white federal defendants.” By the time their report was released, however, Republicans had gained control of Congress, and they passed a bill explicitly overturning the decision of the Sentencing Commission. (Bernie Sanders, for the record, voted against that bill.)

The bill then went to President Clinton for approval. Shortly before it came to his desk he gave an inspiring speech deploring the mass incarceration of black Americans. “Blacks are right to think something is terribly wrong,” he said on that occasion, “… when there are more African American men in our correction system than in our colleges; when almost one in three African American men, in their twenties, are either in jail, on parole, or otherwise under the supervision of the criminal system. Nearly one in three.”

Two weeks after that speech, however, Clinton blandly affixed his signature to the bill retaining the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity, a disparity that had brought about the lopsided incarceration of black people. Clinton could have vetoed it, but he didn’t. He signed it.

Today we are told that mass incarceration was an “unintended consequence” of Clinton’s deeds.

Uh huh.

Liberal Democrats have taken the votes of Black Americans for granted for a long time now.

That’s why Bide told Black Americans on Charlemagne the god’s radio program that if they did not vote for him on November 3rd, they weren’t “Black”.

The Democrats, decades after the advent of LBJ’s “Great Society”, naturally assume that they are going to get the majority of black Americans’ votes in every Presidential Election.

They not only expect it, they rely on it.

However, the problem is the fact that Trump has made great inroads into securing some of that “expected” support from Black American Voters.

Candace Owens has done a great job of waking black Americans up to the reality of the Democrats’ feigned “benevolence”.

The problem that the “unintended consequences” of the 1994 Crime Bill and Biden’s ongoing off-the-cuff racist comments pose for the Democrats is the fact that the show both his and their Party’s hypocrisy.

Instead of fighting against the bill and the “sentencing disparity” which it allowed to continue unabated, Joe performed his imitation of a matador and waved it on through, allowing President Bill “Bubba” Clinton to sign it into law.

And now, unfortunately for Sleepy Joe, the progress of his obvious dementia is causing him to say things which he might be thinking out loud with no filter in between his thought process and his voice box.

I thought Sleepy Joe was supposed to be a “friend of the common man”.

Sheesh.

With “friends” like “Sleepy Joe” Biden, Black Americans don’t need any enemies.

Hidin’ Biden: “There Will Not Be Another Foot of Wall Construction in My Administration”…In 2006, He Supported a Border Wall

August 6, 2020

Biden 72320

FoxNews.com reports that

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said that while he won’t tear down President Trump’s much-touted wall along the United States’ southern border with Mexico, he also won’t continue construction of the barrier if he’s elected president in November.

“There will not be another foot of wall construction in my administration,” Biden said during an interview, according to the Dallas Morning News. “I’m going to make sure that we have border protection, but it’s going to be based on making sure that we use high-tech capacity to deal with it. And at the ports of entry — that’s where all the bad stuff is happening.”

The border wall was one of Trump’s signature proposals during his 2016 presidential campaign and has been a flashpoint of conflict between his administration and Democrats since he assumed office. To date, only 277 miles of the wall have been completed, but Trump on Tuesday promised that “it will be almost finished by the end of the year.”

The entire length of the U.S.’s border with Mexico in 1,974 miles.

Along with halting construction of the wall, Biden vowed that, if elected, he would also end land confiscations along the border that had been taken to build the wall.

“End. Stop. Done. Over. Not going to do it. Withdraw the lawsuits. We’re out. We’re not going to confiscate the land,” Biden said.

Biden’s position on border barriers has changed over time.

A video recently surfaced from 2006 of then-Sen. Biden of Delaware advocating for fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Folks, I voted for a fence, I voted, and unlike most Democrats — and some of you won’t like it — I voted for 700 miles of fence,” he said, in the video unearthed by CNN.

Biden added: “But, let me tell you, we can build a fence 40 stories high — unless you change the dynamic in Mexico and — and you will not like this, and — punish American employers who knowingly violate the law when, in fact, they hire illegals. Unless you do those two things, all the rest is window dressing.”

A spokesperson for Biden’s campaign said that the former vice president’s position hasn’t changed but that a border wall wouldn’t “address the real issues.”

“As then-Senator Biden said at the time, ‘we can build a fence 40 stories high,’ but it will not address the real issues here. Vice President Biden believes we have to stop trying to scare people and instead have an immigration discussion based on facts,” spokesman Andrew Bates said.

“He believes that we can secure our borders without abandoning our values, and that we should do that by addressing the root causes of immigration abroad and working toward comprehensive immigration reform at home, including a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and smart border security.

So, Sleepy Joe wants to address the root causes of immigration abroad?

And, do what? Send them OUR money?

He must have been asleep during the “Attack of the Caravans” from the Golden Triangle in Latin America.

There were representatives of wealthy Americans like George Soros giving people “traveling money” to come and overwhelm our Southern Border.

Who stopped that in its tracks?

The 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump, did.

It slays me when I see and hear Biden say that he is going to fix all of America’s problems like immigration.

He has been in Washington for over 30 years and he has accomplished NOTHING at all.And, now, in his “diminished” state he does not know where he is half the time and when he is confronted with a question he can’t answer, he becomes agitated and strikes out verbally, like he did a couple of days ago.

If you believe that Hidin’ Joe Biden, who is clearly battling dementia, can successfully tackle the ob of being the most powerful leader in the Free World, then I have a free membership in the Rosie O’Donnell Diet Plan to send you.

Walls work.

If they didn’t, wealthy Democrat Politicians like Biden and Pelosi would not live behind them.

If they actually want to be an American and contribute to our country, we will welcome them with open arms.

If they want to sneak in, take advantage of our kindness and largess, and remain loyal to their home country, they can stay in the country which they prefer before our.

And, they can take the Liberals who hate our country and who are attempting to destroy it with them.

Sen. Hirono Walks Out of Cruz’s Senate Judiciary Committee Mtg After Dems Refuse to Condemn Antifa

August 5, 2020

90 (11)

FoxNews.com reports that

Tensions flared at a Senate hearing on Antifa when a top Democrat walked out of the room declaring she couldn’t sit through Sen. Ted Cruz’s rhetorical speeches any longer.

The dustup occurred when Cruz, R-Texas, blasted Democrats for not condemning Antifa more directly for the violence and destruction that has taken hold in certain U.S. cities in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

But Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, said Cruz just wasn’t listening during the more than three-hour hearing when Democrats said violence is not acceptable.

“Sometimes I don’t think you listen,” Hirono told Cruz at the Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing as he finished up with a nearly 10-minute speech.  “So, how many times have I had to say that we all should be denouncing violent extremists of every stripe.”

“Does that include Antifa?” said Cruz, who was chairing the hearing.

“I have the time,” Hirono shot back.

“…I hope this is the end of this hearing, Mr. Chairman, and that we don’t have to listen to any more of your rhetorical speeches,” Hirono concluded.  “Thank you very much. I’m leaving.”

Hirono then packed up to leave the hearing before Cruz adjourned it.

“Well I appreciate the, as always, kind of uplifting words of Senator Hirono,” Cruz said. “And I would also note that throughout her remarks she still did not say a negative word about Antifa nor has any Democrat here.”

He urged her again to denounce the leftist extremist group. “You’re welcome to say something negative about Antifa right now,” Cruz said to his departing colleague.

Hirono, who had stood up and walked away from the microphone, responded to Cruz with something inaudible before heading out of the room.

“Okay, she declined to speak so that is the position of the Democratic Party,” Cruz said.

It was a tense ending to a hearing that kicked off Tuesday afternoon with Democrats and Republicans disagreeing on what the hearing should even be about.

The hearing Tuesday titled “The Right of the People Peaceably to Assemble: Protecting Speech by Stopping Anarchist Violence” revealed deep divisions in how Republicans and Democrats view the sustained protests that have gripped the nation since Floyd’s death while in police custody.

Cruz focused on rioters and anti-government activists that have “hijacked” peaceful protests and unleashed harm and violence in certain cities, like Portland. He kicked off the hearing by playing a video contrasting the protests from Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi and the March for Life with the recent riots, the chaos it has caused, and the Democratic response to it.

“Their actions are profoundly racist,” Cruz said. “The rioters …. destroy minority communities, minority businesses and minority lives across this country. This shouldn’t be complicated: peaceful protests must be protected. Riots must be stopped.”

Meanwhile, Democrats focused on the prevalence of white nationalist extremist groups and the federal government’s sometimes aggressive tactics in places like Portland and Washington, D.C., in dispersing crowds that they view as largely peaceful.

Hirono played her own video at the start of the hearing video of what she says is violence against peaceful protesters and disproportionate force.

Hirono says Tuesday’s hearing should instead be called: “The right of the people peaceably to assemble without being beaten up by unidentifiable federal agents.”

“That would address an actual problem lawful protesters are facing and the rest of us are seeing in this country,” Hirono said.

There is none so blind as he or she who will not see.

What has been described by the Main Stream media as “loosely-connected anarchist groups” have staged coordinated protests in virtually every major city across America.

And yet, the Democrats refuse to condemn them.

Well, Senator Hirono, if you believe that the riots over the last several days all “just happened” to pop up at the same time in every major and some minor cities in America caused by a bunch of bussed-in young punks dressed in all black with black masks on then I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell you.

Antifa follows the teaching of Saul Alinsky and Adolph Hitler, and picks a target, in this case, the perceived “murder” of George Floyd by a Minneapolis Policeman, as an excuse for their “Revolution”, in an attempt to “get what’s coming to them”.

Like Hitler did his followers, the Leaders of these “Revolutionaries”, like Former Weather Underground member “Bomber” Bill Ayers, founder of RefuseFascism.org are promising prosperity to all who follow them.

And, like these type of movements, there seems to be an endless supply of “Useful Idiots”.

Of course, the irony is, they are being funded by “Secret Power Brokers”,  including the Puppet Master himself, George Soros.

The problem that these “Revolutionaries” are facing is the fact that they remain in the minority.

The majority of Americans disagree with them.

Otherwise, Hillary Clinton would have won the Presidency.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that this is “the will of the people” and “White Supremacists” are responsible for the riots.

They have no “home training”, either.

These “spoiled brats”, like the Former Imperious President whom they worshipped as a living deity, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as they attempt to bully and strike fear into average Americans, in order to regain the perceived power which they had under Obama’s failed presidency, while they collected their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party.

These protesters, in their immature, ego-driven rage, do not comprehend our nation’s Constitution, which they firmly believe is an antiquated “Dead ” document, with no more worth than a normal everyday piece of paper.

That Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including the average Americans who live between the coasts and who elected President Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives those protesters that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, or damaging property like the fascist communists of Lenin’s Revolution, whom they are seeking to emulate through their attempts to circumvent the Constitution of the United States of America.

Their actions are far from noble. They are the actions taken by miserable little cowards who simply cannot accept that the majority of Americans do not believe the way that they do.

That is called “INTOLERANCE”.

It is also called FASCISM.

And, evidently the Democrats support them.

Senator Cruz should be commended for showing the nation that the Democrats support a bunch of violent anarchistic punks.

Remember that on November 3rd when you go to vote

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

Cruz Asks Defense Sec. Esper to Address Department’s “Culture of Hostility Toward Religion”

August 4, 2020

Esper-Cruz_AP

“Service members give their lives to defend the principle of religious freedom enshrined in our Constitution, and that principle must be protected within the military, These unlawful infringements must end.” – Sen. Ted Cruz in a July 9th letter to Secretary of Defense Mark Esper

FoxNews.com reports that

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, accused the Defense Department of “religious discrimination” Monday in a strongly-worded letter that pressed Defense Secretary Mark Esper on how his department planned to address “its culture of hostility towards religion.”

“The Department must do better. It must take affirmative steps to stop those in its ranks from targeting religious individuals and violating the United States Constitution,” Cruz said.

He specifically sought information on whether the department had brought discipline in a case involving a Christian Air Force veteran, Jay Lorenzen, who was slated to speak at an annual training for Marine Corps (USMC) JAG reservists last month. The talk was scrapped after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) relayed its reservist clients’ concerns about Lorenzen’s beliefs influencing his remarks.

MRFF President Michael Weinstein told Fox News that Cruz’s letter was “ridiculous” and “nothing more than red meat being thrown to the fundamentalist Christian electorate that’s out there.”

Weinstein similarly called for discipline in the Lorenzen incident but said the punishment should be applied to whoever approved Lorenzen to speak. He told Fox News on Monday that he hasn’t received any updates on potential reprimands.

A class itinerary provided by MRFF shows Lorenzen was scheduled for three presentations on “leadership.” Although the document doesn’t explicitly indicate religious instruction, Weinstein pointed Fox News to an included biography that highlighted, among other things, Lorenzen’s work with Campus Crusaders for Christ. The bio also links to a separate event — “Life and Leadership: Reflections from a Lazy River” — in which Lorenzen tours the Civil War battlefield at Gettysburg and offers Christian instruction.

First Liberty Institute, which represents a JAG reservist opposed to the cancellation, told Fox News that Lorenzen wouldn’t have included religious elements in his talk. Lorenzen himself has declined to comment on the situation.

“We are grateful for Sen. Cruz’s tireless defense of religious liberty and his dedication to our service members,” First Liberty Special Counsel Jeremy Dys said on Monday. “He is due an answer for why the Department of Defense appears to be  ‘vetting’ speakers according to their religious.  No one should be canceled because of their religious beliefs.”

The USMC declined to comment and Esper’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. The USMC previously provided a statement confirming the cancellation but not explaining why.

“A virtual battlefield tour of Gettysburg using a video from the National Park Service was scheduled as part of the annual training. Some of the participating Marines raised concerns about a former military officer who volunteered as an outside virtual presenter. In response to the concerns, the leadership of the unit decided to keep the virtual training internal to the Marines,” said Capt. Joseph Butterfield, Communication Strategy & Operations Officer

Shortly after Lorenzen’s canceled speech caught press attention, Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., met with “several high-level DoD officials,” according to an aide for Collins.

“The DoD officials at the meeting acknowledged the rise in communication between commands across the globe and outside groups that seek to intervene in matters involving religious liberty,” the aide said in an email to Fox News. “In response to these, the officials at the meeting recognized that there must be adequate training for commanders to ensure they handle such attempts at intervention correctly according to DoD policy and the practices of each branch.”

In a June letter, Cruz called out Weinstein’s group as “waging a campaign against the chaplaincy, and frankly, against religious freedom in the military generally.”

Weinstein maintains that many JAGs complained to him about Lorenzen and that he “represents just under 70,000 active duty sailors, soldiers, Marines, airmen, cadets, midshipmen, DoD civilian personnel, and veterans.” That includes, he said, about 95% who are practicing Christians.

Both MRFF and Retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson sought to participate in Collins’ meeting with DoD, but Collins’ office told Fox News it was only open to DoD officials and members of Congress. Wilkerson, a member of MRFF’s advisory board, told Fox News last month that it was difficult for him to believe that Lorenzen wouldn’t “resort” to religious language when discussing leadership.

“In the past when we’ve dealt with people like this, we have been more than reinforced in our views,” he said, noting that’s he’s spoken with others who have allegedly attended Lorenzen’s events. He also indicated that religious talks could disrupt cohesion among service members, who have become increasingly more diverse in their religious views.

“You look at any rifle squad in the military today,” he said. “You’re going to find a Muslim, you’re going to find a Jew, you’re going to find agnostics, you’re going to find atheists … so, when you start focusing on a particular religion inside that squad or that platoon, you start undermining good order and discipline, and morale.”

Road apples.

in the past I have written about my Daddy (Southern colloquialism for male parental unit) and my Uncles, and their service in World War II. I have also had friends that have served over the years, and one who is still serving in the Air National Guard.

All of these men were/are Patriots. They enlisted out of a duty to God and Country.

“God and Country”. Now, there’s a phrase that you may not hear much anymore.

You see, the 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, (our Lord and Savior, as Jamie Foxx referred to him) was on a Crusade to remove Christianity and any reference to the God of Abraham and Isaac, from our Armed Forces.

In 2014, the Pentagon was caught teaching soldiers that the Christian Evangelical “American Family Association”, was a “Terrorist” Organization, needless to say, after Americans gave them “H – e – double hockey sticks” about that stupidity, they had to stop that training class.

After that, the Obama Administration, through their operatives at the Pentagon, decided to remove the phrase “So help me God” for the oath that Americans take, when they enlist in the United States Air Force. It is now “optional”.

The Obama Administration’s quest to remove the God of Abraham from America’s Armed Forces is the result of the influence of Mikey Weinstein.

Who is this clown, you ask?(You probably did not use the word “clown”, but I did. And, I’m holding my temper.)

As the Fox News article above reports, Weinstein is the head of an organization, known as the “Military Religious Freedom Foundation”.

Per discoverthenetworks.org:

Established in 2006, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) describes itself as “a watchdog group” that is “dedicated to ensuring that all members of the United States Armed Forces fully receive the Constitutional guarantees of religious freedom to which they and all Americans are entitled …” The organization’s primary objective is to eradicate the religious bias and “coercion” that it deems prevalent among high-ranking Christian members of the U.S. military. Toward that end, MRFF functions as “a clearinghouse for violations reported by military and civilian personnel,” offering “complete anonymity” to all complainants.

Headed by retired Air Force lawyer Michael L. “Mikey” Weinstein, MRFF declares: “At a time when the United States is encouraging greater religious freedom in Muslim nations, it is imperative [sic] upon America to show by example that religious pluralism is a viable and preferred option. Any sign of hypocrisy in United States policy … toward the free exercise of religion within the military makes it more difficult to convince others to follow our nation’s chosen path.”

In December 2006, MRFF issued a “Compliance Report on the Pervasive Violations of the United States Constitutional Religious Freedoms of Military Personnel.” “Military and civilian personnel,” says this document, “are subjected to blatant and unlawful displays of religiosity at mandatory formations, religious bias, and illegal proselytizing by their peers and superiors alike.” The report identifies “pervasive violations of United States Constitutional religious freedoms of military personnel” in five major areas:

(a) Blatant displays of religious symbolism on military garb.

(b) Placement of a biblical quotation above the door of the Air and Space Basic Course classroom.

(c) Illegal use of official military e-mail accounts to send e-mails containing religious rhetoric.

(d) Attempts by missionary organizations to train active-duty military personnel to evangelize their subordinates and peers.

(e) Military leadership openly discussing their commitment to bring religion into the military.

Notwithstanding the disclaimer, MRFF states: “[S]erious violations were committed by prominent figures featured on the organization’s ten-minute promotional video. … [S]everal members of military leadership appear in the video, dressed in full uniform openly discussing their personal connection to Jesus and how they make this connection part of the work they do in their professional capacity each day. {They] state that, among other things, with the help of Christian Embassy, they hold bible studies while on duty in the workplace, many times in their offices.”

Ohhhh….how horrible. Why…morality and ethical behavior may break out at any moment!!!

And, Lord knows, the Obama Deep State Leftovers in the Pentagon want that to happen.

Since America is an overwhelmingly majority Christian nation, that means that the majority of those i service to our Sovereign Nation are also Christan men and women.

Their Religious Freedom is also Constitutionally Protected.

It is not subject to the whims of Popular Culture or the Tyranny of the Minority.

This is something that the Secretary of Defense and the President need to “discuss” and follow up with positive action.

Those who continue to attempt to publish and harangue Christian Americans because of their faith need to remember one thing:

God always has the last word.

Hannity Tells Levin That the MSM “are State-Run Propaganda TV”…Why He is Exactly Right

August 3, 2020

Sean-Hannity-on-Levin_2018_07_02_screenshot

FoxNews.com reports that

Fox News host Sean Hannity compared the mainstream media to “state-run propaganda TV” in an interview on “Life, Liberty & Levin” Sunday, striking a serious tone as he detailed for viewers the significance of the upcoming November election.

“The media, the 99 percent… They are the propaganda wing of everything radical, extreme, Democratic, socialist. That’s it,” Hannity, the host of “Hannity” on Fox News Channel and the author of the forthcoming book “Live Free Or Die: America on the Brink,” told host Mark Levin.

“They are state-run propaganda TV.”

Hannity discussed what he described as the dire situation facing the United States should former Vice President Joe Biden defeat President Trump in November’s election, and condemned the media for “lying to the country for four years straight” in an effort to boot Trump from office and prevent him from winning a second term.

“The country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and it has made us great,” Hannity said. “We’re moral people, we’re good people. Freedom has made us a better people. The media is so corrupt. They lied to this country for four straight years. They lied about Russia. They lied about collusion.”

Detailing the Democratic policies that threaten the values and rights enshrined in the American system, Hannity told Levin: “I have a five-alarm fire in my heart, my mind and my soul right now for this country.”

“Whenever you have socialism, radicalism, statism, that [tyranny] is usually what follows thereafter. I think everything that has made this country great, everything that has made us the shining city on the hill, is riding on this election,” he said.

Hannity theorized that socialist policies hold a “psychological appeal” to voters by implicitly promising to “remove all the natural stress in one’s life.”

“[Socialists say], ‘We’ll be taking care of a guaranteed government job, guaranteed government wage. We’re going to guarantee a government vacation. We’re going to guarantee government healthy food. We’re going to guarantee government health care. We’re going to guarantee government retirement,'” he said.

“Well, OK, let’s look at the history of how government in this country alone is now working,” he added. “You know, we see the anarchy. We see the violence. New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles. It’s unfolding right before our very eyes. What do all of those cities have in common? They’ve all been run by liberal Democrats now for decades.”

Sean Hannity is exactly right.

For the last several decades, Americans have witnessed the Fourth Estate, America’s Main Stream Media, slowly but surely lose their objectivity to become a Propaganda Arm for the Democratic Party.

While their reporting became decidedly one-sided, it was not a great danger to the country even though it was a completely different sort of propaganda than when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt used the Main Stream Media to support the American effort in World War II.

Then, the 1980s arrived and along with it a new era in mass communications. Cable News Networks began springing up, increasing the role of the media in our daily lives.

Because of this new role, news organizations increased in their power and their influence in our daily lives. However, with this increased role came the responsibility to fill a 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, with new stories.

When actual new stories became hard to find, human interest stories began to fill the time, and when they ran out, news organizations decided to act like the National Enquirer and started to make news up.

Also, as the years wore on, America’s newsrooms became bastions of Liberal thought as more and more Conservatives left the business simply due to attrition and being squeezed out by young Liberal reporters who were a product of American universities which had become fountains of anti-American Political Activism.

Of course, these Liberal news reporters were members of the Democratic Party as it moved to the left of the political Spectrum. So, naturally, these reporters started reporting news more and more favorably to their political party of choice while keeping with their own personal political philosophy.

We all remember what happened when Barack Obama appeared on the political scene.

The Main Stream Media treated him as if it his appearance on the political scene was the Second Coming.

The Main Stream Media had finally become political activists instead of just political observers and pundits.

And, that is where we find ourselves today.

The Main Stream Media did everything in its power as political activists, working as the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party, to keep Donald J. Trump from being elected President of the United States of America.

Since his election, they have deliberately posted false and scurrilous news stories designed to impede and threaten his presidency.

While Americans remain in danger of losing both our lives and our freedom from a coronavirus which originated in a country which would love for America to be knocked down a peg or two, China, all of the MSM and their masters, the Democratic Party Elite, can think about is trying to use the crisis to damage President Trump, who is doing his job and trying to save American lives.

Additionally, while President Trump continues to work hard for the American people, the Main Stream Media continues to work against all of us…except for the Far Left Democrat Party and their foot soldiers in Antifa and BLM, who are doing their best to destroy major American cities.

And, they wonder why Trump’s Popularity Poll numbers keep rising and nobody trusts them anymore.

Of Bible Burning, BLM, Antifa, and the New Fascism

August 2, 2020

Screen-Shot-2020-08-01-at-11.33.08-AM-730x487

NewYorkPost.com reports that

Protesters burned an American flag and a Bible in Portland, Oregon, sparking outrage just as weeks of violent demonstrations seemed to be coming to a close.

For more than 60 days, Black Lives Matters demonstrators, including a “Wall of Moms” and a “Wall of Vets,” have clashed with federal agents in the city, drawing national attention as authorities blasted marchers with tear gas and the civilians at times responded with weapons of their own — such as feces, bleach, bricks or batteries.

Friday night’s demonstrations were largely peaceful, appearing to mark a break from the chaos as federal agents made a recent deal to allow local authorities to handle the protests.

But just after midnight, marchers were caught on video using the flag and holy book as kindling for bonfires lit outside the federal courthouse, which has been a focal point of rioting after the death of George Floyd in police custody in May, according to a news report.

“Left-wing activists bring a stack of Bibles to burn in front of the federal courthouse in Portland,” claimed Ian Miles Cheong on Twitter Saturday.

The post featured a video which showed protestors with “Black Lives Matter” signs tossing bibles into a raging bonfire. The video, which has gone viral, had more than 1.8 million views and thousands of retweets.

“Now we move to the book burning phase,” said Donald Trump Jr. in a tweet Saturday. “I’m pretty sure ANTIFA doesn’t actually stand for what they say it stands for. Maybe just remove the anti part of [their] name and it’s perfect,” he wrote.

The fire was later put out by members of Moms United for Black Lives Matter, who doused the flames with bottles of water and stomped on the embers, according to KOIN 6, a local CBS affiliate television station in Portland.

So, what does ANTIFA stand for? What is their agenda?

On Thursday, April 27th, 2017, the following information was posted in an article found on gatewaypundit.com

Violent domestic terrorist Bill Ayers is officially linked to Antifa through his group “Refuse Fascism”.

Ayers is infamous for the Weather Underground, a domestic terror organization he co-founded with other degenerates, and for bombing the Pentagon.

“Refuse Fascism“, a fascist organization that wishes to inhibit and deny the speech of conservatives, is partly funded by George Soros. It has organizers like Bill Ayers and is targeting youth across the country with the intention of indoctrinating and brainwashing individuals who nascent politically. We know Ayers was associated with Barrack Obama and is a big supporter of various socialists and communists as well as violent terrorists.

Today, it has come out that Ayers is partnering with Antifa in the spread of militant violence against pro-America demonstrators. Leftists have historically turned Ayers into a folklore figure who they cherish and respect despite his violent past.

These Antifa Idiots, have been following a well-written out plan all along.

Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, a favorite of the 60s counter-culture, was on the reading list of the 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, and his First Secretary of State and Failed 2016 Democratic Party Presidential Candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Let’s look at rule #8 – rule #13:

8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.

9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.

12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

It’s very apparent from what is happening during Trump’s Presidency that somebody’s read Alinsky’s book.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

In order to ensure that no leader of this new nation would go mad with power, and become a tyrannical despot, our Founders set up a System of Checks and Balances, overseen by Three Branches of Government: the Legislative, the Executive, and the Judicial, with each branch having a distinct and LIMITED role.

The situation, which we as a nation, find ourselves in today, is one which our Founding Fathers sought valiantly to avoid.

During 8 years of a Previous Imperious Presidency, we suffered under a “Tyranny of the Minority”.

This minority was not based on color, rather, it was one based on political ideology and self-interest.

As the past several years showed before the election of Donald J. Trump as President, this minority, buoyed by money from this “sponsors”, including the Halls of Power in Washington, DC, were willing to shut down anyone who threatened “what they had” by ANY MEANS NECESSARY, including political devices and beliefs, which we, as a country, had gone to war against in the past.

After watching the spoiled brats of the Antifa Movement riot in Portland for over 60 days,  I have noticed that they do not seem to grasp is that America is, as I stated earlier, a Constitutional Republic and that the overwhelming majority of Americans are Christians.

Our Presidents do not ascend into office by mob rule.

And, those bibles which they have decided to burn are considered Holy by the majority of Americans.

Speaking of book burning…

On a different website, you will find these words…

Where is this art of ruling, to say nothing of the art of leadership? It is only the unscrupulousness for robbery. And when this same man then says: “We have a fine instinct for idealism and material values.” Yes indeed they have. They have destroyed idealism everywhere, and they have grabbed and taken possession of material worth and always grabbed and taken possession of it, too, by brutal force only. For in 300 years that nation has oppressed and yoked and subjected nation after nation, people after people, race after race.

No, boys and girls, the following quote did not come from the Antifa Group Refuse Fascism’s website, although it certainly reads like something they would write.

This quote comes from the Jewish Virtual Library. It is taken from a speech, delivered in 1942, given on the 19th Anniversary of the “Beer Hall Putsch”, by German Chancellor Adolph Hitler.

The Beer Hall Putsch was an incident that took place on November 8, 1923, when Nazi troops under the direction of Hermann Goering surrounded the a beer hall in Munich, Germany. At 8:30 p.m., Hitler and his storm troopers burst into the beer hall causing instant panic. Hitler announced to the crowd that the Revolution had begun, and went to the back room of the hall to try to persuade the local officials to capitulate to him. They wouldn’t. Hitler’s attempt to seize power that night failed. But, thanks to word of mouth, and Hitler’s use of propaganda, a seed was planted, that would eventually lead to World War II.

By now, you are probably asking:

Okay. So what does one thing have to do the other?

Hitler eventually rose to power by preying upon the economic despair, hopelessness, and avarice of the German people, whose country was savaged by the Great Depression of 1929.

Hitler chose his nation’s Jewish Population as his scapegoat, blaming them for Germany’s plight. He soon attracted legions of young men, swayed by his propaganda, who began to march the streets of Germany, intimidating anyone who dared to disagree with them.

Hitler formed a political party, naming it The National Socialist Party, which led to he and his thugs being called “Nazis”.

The era became known as the “Rise of Fascism”.

As I have related before, according to various sources, during the Nazi Occupation of Hungary in the 1940s, the Funder of moveon.org and the never-ending protests against President Donald J. Trump by groups such as Refuse Fascism and BLM, George Soros , reported his own countrymen to the Nazis, facilitating their removal via “the long train ride from which very few ever returned”.

These Modern Day Bolsheviks are unknowingly doing the bidding of evil fascists themselves, just as the original Bolsheviks did.

The Antifa, the BLM, and all of the other radicalized “Social Organizations” are carrying out the Machiavellian Plans of a very evil man, who almost bankrupted England, and, in his long life, has stood for the very things which these “Social Justice Warriors” claim to be fighting against.

Irony is embarrassed at their idiocy.

Satan is laughing.

Epstein Told Maxwell’s Accuser, Virginia Giuffre, that Bill Clinton “Owed Him Favors”

August 1, 2020

Epstein and Clinton

How is “Bill Clinton was at Epstein’s private island with young girls” not the lead story? The question is: How hard are they (the Main Stream Media) working to suppress it? How much argument is there in newsrooms about it? – Rush Limbaugh, 7/31/20

FoxNews.com reports that

A trove of documents released late Thursday could shed light on Ghislaine Maxwell’s relationship with late financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The data include records of a 2011 meeting between accuser Virginia Giuffre and her lawyers where she talked about the powerful people in Epstein’s orbit who she said either flew on his private Boeing 727 or stayed on his private island in the Caribbean.

One of the names mentioned was that of former President Bill Clinton.

Maxwell’s lawyers had filed an emergency motion to stop the release of the new documents and have said the move would essentially eliminate any chance their client has at a fair trial. The lawyers said documents from a 2015 civil suit could “inappropriately influence potential witnesses or alleged victims.”

The newly released documents include a conversation that accuser Giuffre had with her lawyers nearly 10 years ago as part of her civil case against Maxwell in 2015.

At one point in the conversation, the subject turned to Epstein’s powerful friends. Jack Scarola, one of Giuffre’s lawyers, asked her if she had any recollection of Epstein telling her that Bill Clinton owed him “favors.”

“Yes I do,” she responded, according to the documents. “It was a laugh, though. He would laugh it off.  You know, I remember asking Jeffrey [a] ‘What’s Bill Clinton doing here?’ kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said, ‘Well, he owes me a favor.’ He never told me what favors they were. I never knew. I didn’t know if he was serious. It was just a joke.”

The lawyer asked her to clarify what she was referring to when she mentioned Clinton, and she said the former president was on the island. She said Maxwell was also there, as well as a person named “Emmy” and two young girls.

“And were all of you staying at Jeffrey’s house on the island, including Bill Clinton?” Scarola asked.

“That’s correct,” she responded. “He had about four or five different villas on his island separate from the main house, and we stayed in the villas.”

Giuffre said sex orgies were a common occurrence there. In previous interviews, she has said she never saw Clinton behave inappropriately. A Netflix documentary titled, “Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich,” includes an island tech worker’s account of once seeing Clinton at the villa — though only with Epstein.

Angel Urena, a spokeswoman for Clinton, told the New York Post at the time that, “This was a lie the first time it was told, and it isn’t true today, no matter how many times it’s repeated.”

Last year, Clinton’s office issued a statement saying the former president had traveled aboard Epstein’s private plane and briefly visited Epstein’s New York City apartment — but was always in the company of staff and Secret Service agents. Clinton also claimed to have had no knowledge of Epstein having pleaded guilty to sex crimes years ago in Florida.

Fox News tried to reach Clinton’s office after hours in connection with this story but did not receive a reply.

On July 8, 2019, FoxNews.com reported that

“In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein’s airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation,” the statement said. “Staff, supporters of the foundation, and his Secret Service detail traveled on every leg of every trip. He had one meeting with Epstein in his Harlem office in 2002, and around the same time made one brief visit to Epstein’s New York apartment with a staff member and his security detail. He’s not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and he has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein’s ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida.”

If you believe Former President Bill “Bubba” Clinton did not know about what Epstein and his island were all about, I have 2 bridges that cross the Mississippi River at Memphis to sell you….cheap!

Clinton’s moral turpitude has been in question for a looong time.

Let’s take a stroll down Memory Lane, shall we?

Back in the Bill Clinton era, White House advisor Betsey Wright coined the term “bimbo eruptions” to describe a long list of presi­den­tial gal pals.

BIll “Bubba” Clinton’s Bimbo List” includ­ed, but is not limit­ed to (I’m sure) Jennifer Flowers, Former Miss Ameri­ca Eliza­beth Ward, Paul Corbin Jones, and, of course, Monica Lewin­sky.

The Lewin­sky scandal was a sensa­tion that enveloped the presi­den­cy of Bill Clinton in 1998–99, leading to his impeach­ment by the U.S. House of Repre­sen­ta­tives and acquit­tal by the Senate.

Paula Corbin Jones, a former Arkansas state worker who claimed that Bill Clinton had accost­ed her sexual­ly in 1991 when he was gover­nor of Arkansas, had brought a sexual harass­ment lawsuit again­st the presi­dent. In order to show a pattern of behav­ior on Clinton’s part, Jones’s lawyers questioned sever­al women believed to have been engag­ing in sex  with him. On Jan. 17, 1998, Bubba took the stand, becom­ing the first sitting presi­dent to testi­fy as a civil defen­dant.

During this testi­mony, Clinton denied having had an affair with Monica S. Lewin­sky, an unpaid intern and later a paid staffer at the White House who worked in the White House from 1995–96. Lewin­sky had earlier, in a deposi­tion in the same case, also denied having such a relation­ship. Kenneth Starr, the indepen­dent counsel in the White­wa­ter case, had already received tape record­ings made by Linda R. Tripp (a former cowork­er of Lewinsky’s) of telephone conver­sa­tions in which Lewin­sky described her involve­ment with the presi­dent. Assert­ing that there was a “pattern of decep­tion,” Starr obtained from Attor­ney Gener­al Janet Reno permis­sion to inves­ti­gate the matter.

The presi­dent publicly denied having had a relation­ship with Lewin­sky and charges of cover­ing it up. His advis­er, Vernon Jordan, denied having counseled Lewin­sky to lie in the Jones case, or having arranged a job for her outside Washing­ton, to help cover up the affair. Hillary Clinton claimed that a “vast right-wing conspir­a­cy” was trying to destroy her husband, while Repub­li­cans and conser­v­a­tives portrayed him as immoral and a liar.

In March, Jordan and others testi­fied before Starr’s grand jury, and lawyers for Paula Jones released papers reveal­ing, among other things, that Clinton, in his January deposi­tion, had admit­ted to a sexual relation­ship in the 1980s with Arkansas enter­tain­er Gennifer Flowers, a charge he had long denied. In April, howev­er, Arkansas feder­al judge Susan Webber Wright dismissed the Jones suit, ruling that Jones’s story, if true, showed that she had been exposed to “boorish” behav­ior but not sexual harass­ment; Jones appealed.

In July, Starr grant­ed Lewin­sky immuni­ty from perjury charges, and Clinton agreed to testi­fy before the grand jury. He did so on Aug. 17, then went on televi­sion to admit the affair with Lewin­sky and ask for forgive­ness. In Septem­ber, Starr sent a 445-page report to the House of Repre­sen­ta­tives, recom­mend­ing four possi­ble grounds for impeach­ment: perjury, obstruc­tion of justice, witness tamper­ing, and abuse of author­i­ty.

On Dec. 19, Clinton became the second presi­dent (after Andrew Johnson) to be impeached, on two charges: perjury—in his Aug., 1998, testimony—and obstruc­tion of justice. The vote in the House was large­ly along party lines.

In Jan., 1999, the trial began in the Senate. On Feb. 12, after a trial in which testi­mony relat­ing to the charges was limit­ed, the Senate reject­ed both counts of impeach­ment. The perjury charge lost, 55–45, with 10 Repub­li­cans joining all 45 Democ­rats in voting again­st it; the obstruc­tion charge drew a 50–50 vote. Subse­quent­ly, on Apr. 12, Judge Wright, who had dismissed the Jones case, found the presi­dent in contempt for lying in his Jan., 1998, testi­mony, when he denied the Lewin­sky affair. In July, Judge Wright ordered the presi­dent to pay nearly $90,000 to Ms. Jones’s lawyers. On Jan. 19, 2001, the day before he left office, Presi­dent Clinton agreed to admit to giving false testi­mony in the Jones case and to accept a five-year suspen­sion of his law license and a $25,000 fine in return for an agree­ment by the indepen­dent counsel, Robert W. Ray (Starr’s succes­sor), to end the inves­ti­ga­tion and not prose­cute him.

In a later inter­view, Hillary claimed that Bill suffered child­hood abuse which may have caused him to be a philan­der­er and experi­ence “bimbo eruptions” later in life. She described her philan­der­ing husband as “a hard dog to keep on the porch”.

And, apparently…off of Orgy Island.

Trump Tweets About Possibly Delaying the Election Due to Mail-In Voting Fraud…Dems Throw Hissy Fit…Trolling Accomplished

July 31, 2020

vote-mail-elections-envelopes-gt-img

FoxNews.com reports that

Claiming at Thursday’s White House briefing that the 2020 elections could be “fixed” and “rigged,” President Trump again highlighted the risks of nationwide, universal mail-in balloting in stark terms — including by citing news articles and experts who have raised similar concerns.

Before taking questions, Trump honored former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, noting that “unfortunately, he passed away from a thing called the China virus.” Trump also hit Democrats’ plans to keep schools and businesses closed, saying they would cause “probably more death” and economic destruction than coronavirus itself.

Within seconds, Trump was pressed on his tweet earlier in the day that suggested the election could be delayed due to mail-in ballot fraud. He responded that delays in mail-in ballot results, including lost ballots, could mean the election winner isn’t clear for weeks or even months after Election Day.

“You’re sending out hundreds of millions of universal mail-in ballots. Hundreds of millions. Where are they going? Who are they being sent to? It’s common sense,” Trump said. “I want an election, and a result, much more than you. I think we’re doing very well. … I don’t want to see a rigged election.”

The president held up a Wall Street Journal article entitled “New York’s Mail-Vote Disaster,” as well as a CBS News article entitled “Vote-by-mail experiment reveals potential problems within postal voting system ahead of November election.” He cited a similar piece in The Washington Post.

The press conference followed a backlash against Trump’s comments from both sides of the aisle on Thursday, with Democrats railing against the suggestion and some Republicans saying they opposed it. The Senate’s top Republican, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, flatly told a Kentucky news station the election would not be moving.

Earlier this month, a Fox News review found a slew of issues with mail-in ballots in recent elections. A dramatic local news report this week, tweeted out by the president on Thursday, highlighted missing ballots in a test of the United States Postal Service’s ability to handle mail-in ballots.

“We all agree that absentee voting is good,” Trump said, referring to votes by mail where citizens provide a justification for sending in a ballot remotely. He then hit Democrats for voicing concerns about Russian election interference, only to ignore the risks posed by mail-in voting.

“Mail-in voting will lead to the greatest fraud,” he added. “Stupid people may not know it.”

The brouhaha began when Trump tweeted at 8:46 a.m. ET: “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”

Hours later, Trump appeared to suggest he was trying to raise awareness, not seriously suggest he would try to delay the election. “Glad I was able to get the very dishonest LameStream Media to finally start talking about the RISKS to our Democracy from dangerous Universal Mail-In-Voting (not Absentee Voting, which I totally support!),” he wrote.

Several experts have long called mail-in balloting an invitation to widespread fraud.

“Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud,” read the conclusion of a bipartisan 2005 report authored by the Commission on Federal Election Reform, which was chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker.

And a 2012 article in The New York Times was headlined, “Error and Fraud at Issue as Absentee Voting Rises.” The article states that “votes cast by mail are less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than those cast in a voting booth, statistics show.”

Twitter has previously slapped a warning label on Trump’s tweets about mail-in ballots. Fox News has reported that Twitter’s “Head of Site Integrity” Yoel Roth is in charge of fact-checking efforts – and that he has previously referred to Trump and his team as “ACTUAL NAZIS,” mocked Trump supporters by saying that “we fly over those states that voted for a racist tangerine for a reason,” and called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., a “personality-free bag of farts.”

Why do Democrats keep proposing dumb things like mail-in voting?

Well, it is probably because they do not have a very high opinion of the intelligence of average Americans.

Like the Medicine Shows of the Old West or the old Carnival Sideshows, the Democrats rely on the gullibility of average Americans.

Anyone who has ever received a Christmas Card on the 4th of July knows that the U.S. Mail is famous for is slow delivery and just downright losing letters and packages in transit.

The Democrats, who for the past several decades have said that “Every Vote Counts” , now, all of the sudden, want to place the future of our country in the hands of the United States Postal Service.

Why? Because fraud and deception is what today’s Far Left Democrats, like Marxists who have come before them, are good at.

So, why did the President tweet about possibly delaying the 2020 Presidential Election over this issue?

Have you ever shined a laser pen light in front of a cat and watched it chase that laser for hours?

Boys and girls, President Trump kept the entire Far Left Democratic Party, the MSM, SWJs, and Social Media Amateur Political Pundits having a hissy fit all day yesterday with one little tweet.

That was Master Class Trolling.

Plus, the President got the attention of the entire nation.

If America’s children can go back to school and the anthem-kneeling NBA and MLB can play sports for money, then certainly Americans can safely vote in person on November 3rd.

Our future as a Sovereign Nation is too important to be placed on the unreliable delivery of a metered letter.

If Elected, Biden Will Reinstate Obama’s AFFH Rule Which Trump Just Canceled…It Would Allow Low-Income Housing in Suburbs

July 30, 2020

ben-carson-and-trump

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump told suburban voters in a tweet on Wednesday they will “no longer be bothered or financially hurt” by having low-income housing in their neighborhood after his administration revoked an Obama-era housing rule.

The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing, or the AFFH rule, was designed to eliminate racial disparities in housing by telling jurisdictions that receive housing funds they must assess patterns of housing discrimination and come up with a plan to diminish them.

“I am happy to inform all of the people living their Suburban Lifestyle Dream that you will no longer be bothered or financially hurt by having low income housing built in your neighborhood,” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “Your housing prices will go up based on the market, and crime will go down. I have rescinded the Obama-Biden AFFH Rule. Enjoy!”

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rescinded the 2015 rule last week as Secretary Ben Carson said the rule was “unworkable and ultimately a waste of time for localities to comply with.”

It will be replaced by a new rule that reduces the burden of local jurisdictions to prove that they are actively taking steps to address historical patterns of racial segregation in order to qualify for HUD financing.

“Washington has no business dictating what is best to meet your local community’s unique needs,” Carson said.

Housing advocates have dinged Trump’s opposition to the rule as a racially charged appeal to white voters in the midst of an election year, as Trump has repeatedly said the rule forces the construction of low-income housing in suburbs.

“Your home will go down in value and crime rates will rapidly rise,” Trump said last week. “People have worked all their lives to get into a community, and now they’re going to watch it go to hell. Not going to happen, not while I’m here.”

Trump has sought to pit presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden against suburban voters, last month saying Biden wants to make suburbs “much worse.”

“At the request of many great Americans who live in the Suburbs, and others, I am studying the AFFH housing regulation that is having a devastating impact on these once thriving Suburban areas,” the president tweeted. “Corrupt Joe Biden wants to make them MUCH WORSE. Not fair to homeowners, I may END!

“Biden will destroy your neighborhood and your American Dream,” Trump tweeted last week, along with a New York Post column entitled “Joe Biden’s Disastrous Plans for the Suburbs.”

“I will preserve it, and make it even better!” Trump added.

The New York Post column claims that under the AFFH rule, “towns everywhere would have had to scrap zoning, build bigger water and sewer lines to support high-density living, expand schools and social services and add mass transit. All pushing up local taxes. Towns that refused would lose their federal aid.”

Carson has said jurisdictions were “forced to comply with complicated regulations that require hundreds of pages of reporting” under the Obama-era rule.

The issue has been a long-standing issue for Carson, and fair housing advocates say the program never truly got off the ground because Carson suspended its implementation shortly after taking office. Biden has said he would implement the rule.

Biden’s housing plan would get rid of zoning regulations in suburbs that send prices skyrocketing.

“Exclusionary zoning has for decades been strategically used to keep people of color and low-income families out of certain communities,” Biden writes.

It would also vastly expand Section 8 housing vouchers, enact laws to prohibit landlords from discriminating those who pay with vouchers, establish tax incentives to build affordable housing, protect tenants from eviction by providing them legal assistance, among other policies that Biden thinks would make housing more affordable.

“Government-Funded Upward Mobility”?

How does that work in cities that are already 90% minority population, like Detroit or Memphis?

As Charles Barkley pointed out a while back, Racism is not just a one-way street. How do you think that these cities got this way? Not all of their white citizens moved out because they wanted to.

And, what about Black Americans who have worked hard to move out to the suburbs, seeking a better life for them and their children?

Why is this happening? How did we get here?

Back in the 60s, President Lyndon Johnson (whose big hand I once shook, at his ranch, as a little boy, after his presidential term) and the Democrats, brought forth a plan, called “the Great Society”. It was decided, in order to ensure that everyone would have an equal opportunity in America, that Uncle Sugar would step in to fill in the gaps.

Two seminal pieces of legislation were passed.

First, the Civil Rights Bill that JFK promised to sign, before his assassination, was passed into law. This Act banned discrimination based on race and gender in employment and ending segregation in all public facilities.

It also helped to cement in stone, American Minorities’ loyalty to the Democratic Party, which continues to this day.

The second bill that LBJ signed into law was the sweeping ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 1964. It created the Office of Economic Opportunity whose stated purpose was to attack the roots of American poverty. A Job Corps was then established to provide vocational training.

A preschool program designed to help disadvantaged students arrive at kindergarten ready to learn, named HEADSTART, was then established. Then came VOLUNTEERS IN SERVICE TO AMERICA (VISTA), which was set up as a domestic Peace Corps. Schools in impoverished American regions would now receive volunteer teaching attention. Federal funds were sent to struggling communities to attack unemployment and illiteracy.

What Johnson told Americans, as he campaigned in 1964, was that the establishment of this “Great Society” was going to eliminate the problems of America’s poor.

It had the opposite effect.

The Great Society created a dependent class, which, instead of diminishing as it’s members joined the workforce, increased from generation to generation, relying on the federal government to provide their every need.

Uncle Sugar became Mother, Father, Preacher, and Doctor to generations of Americans. This “plantation mentality” continues to this day.

Instead of moving forward, by exercising the self-reliance that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached so well, the people I saw, while working in a State Employment Office, were content on being “taken care of” by Uncle Sugar, as if being held down by their own poor, miserable circumstance, was a good thing.

The results of LBJ’s “Great Society” continue to be the lead story in seemingly, every television newscast, on every newspaper front page, and on every internet news/political website.

But, I digress…

On a Sunday, in October of 2008, outside of Toledo, Ohio, Democratic Presidential Nominee Obama met a plumber named Joe Wurzelbacher. Joe, who owned his own plumbing company, dared to ask Obama about his proposed tax hikes. In fact, he told Obama that he did not want to pay higher taxes, he was already paying enough. Obama told him,

Now, I respect the disagreement. I just want you to be clear – it’s not that I want to punish your success – I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you – that they’ve got a chance at success too.”

…I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.

The “fairness” Obama sought, included making everyone’s housing “fair”, too.

This, boys and girls, is called “Marxism”.

If Joe Biden is elected President, “Democratic Socialism” would be put in place in the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave”.

No Individual Achievement allowed.

No American Exceptionalism ever to be spoken off.

No individuality allowed in the Proletariat.

President Trump wants EVERYONE TO ACHIEVE and to be rewarded for tat hard-earned achievement.

That is why he continues to work hard to bring jobs back to America.

And, why he is the ONLY candidate in the 2020 Presidential Election who will work hard to make America great and her citizens prosperous again.

Until He Comes,
