When I Named Anti-Trump Protestors “New Bolsheviks,” I Was Right

February 17, 2018

The year is 1903, The Russian Social Democratic Party is meeting in London. All the intellectuals in their party have been arguing since the end of the 1800’s as to the direction the party should take. One year earlier, in 1902, a man named Lenin, living in exile, wrote a paper entitled, “What Is To Be Done”.

The work was smuggled into Russia and spelled out his views regarding what the Social Democrats should be doing as a party. Lenin attacked party members who “were content to wait while history took its predetermined course.” Rather than wait, Lenin wanted to kick-start the issue he believed in to get things done rather than wait on intellectuals sitting around refuting each other’s ideas. The meeting resulted in a Party split creating the Mentsheviks and the Bolsheviks. The two factions reunited under Lenin in April 1905. Lenin went on to organize the November 1917 Russian Revolution on the Promise of “peace. bread, and land”.

Isn’t that like “sharing the wealth”?

But, I digress…

It appears as if a “Russian Revolution” was attempted in our Sovereign Nation.

Only this time…it failed.

As reported on www.SpartaReport.com yesterday, 13 Russian Nationals have been indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for “meddling” in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Per Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, no Americans were involved in the activities which led to this indictment.

FoxNews.com reports that

The Russians indicted for meddling in the 2016 presidential contest were also behind anti-Trump rallies after the election, prosecutors said Friday, revealing another aspect of Russia’s alleged interference as it worked to sow discord in the United States.

“After the election, the defendants allegedly staged rallies to support the president-elect while simultaneously staging rallies to protest his election,” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in a Friday press conference.

“For example, the defendants organized one rally to support the president-elect and another rally to oppose him, both in New York on the same day,” he said.

Friday’s indictment filing – signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller – says the defendants organized a Nov. 12 “Trump is NOT my President” rally in New York.

Photos from that day show protesters in Manhattan holding signs that say “stop Trump” and “not my president.”

The November rallies are the only anti-Trump events that the indictment links to these Russian actors. It does not draw any connections to the widespread anti-Trump protests that were organized after his inauguration.

Thirteen Russian nationals were charged Friday. During the election, according to the filing, the Russians supported Trump and worked to spread derogatory information on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Their “strategic goal” was to “sow discord in the U.S. political system,” the indictment said.

…In a statement released by the White House, Trump said Friday: “We cannot allow those seeking to sow confusion, discord, and rancor to be successful.”

He also seized on Rosenstein’s comment that the election results were not impacted by the Russians’ activity.

“Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President,” Trump tweeted. “The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong – no collusion!”

Democrats on Capitol Hill, though, are still suggesting that people associated with Trump or his campaign could have been involved in Russia’s meddling.

Of course they are.

Mueller’s indictment blows their whole Trump/Russian Collusion Fairy Tale completely out of the water.

The Democrats are now living in a Glass House.

If they keep pressing for further investigation into possible “collusion” by members of the Trump Campaign in the years before the election, could that not bring up investigation into Former President Barack Hussein Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “collusion” with the Russian Government during the time of the Uranium One Deal?

As I have written before, there are so many intricate working parts in play regarding this whole political mess, from the influence of the Puppet Master George Soros and his manipulation of the Political Activists within and without the Democratic Party to the Machiavellian plans and schemes hatched by the Deep State Operatives lodged within the hierarchy of the Department of Justice and the FBI, that it reads like a Tom Clancy novel.

…with no Jack Ryan in sight.

The Russians played on the gullibility and later, the post-election heartbreak and angst of the young millennial Far Left Clintonistas, who were all “wee-wee’d up” after the Queen of Mean was defeated by a “Commoner”, New York Businessman and Entrepreneur, Donald J. Trump.

These “fragile snowflakes” were used by the Russians in the same manner as Vladimir Lenin used his dupes in the Russian Revolution: as a weapon of “change” and discord in order to tear down an established government for their own nefarious ends.

And, now, over a year later, with this indictment, it turns out that the Democrats are still attempting to lay their loss on President Trump somehow “colluding with the Russians”, even though “no Americans were involved”.

It now appears that I was right when I decided to refer to these Anti-Trump Protesters as “The New Bolsheviks”.

And with Pelosi and the Democrats inferring that Trump and his Campaign Staff WERE involved, it appears that Vladimir Lenin was right, when he wrote that

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

…At least to those perpetuating it.

Like Pavlov’s Dog After a Bell, Liberals Cry for Gun Control After Parkland Massacre

February 15, 2018

e8a97af7139635a86508bb9e65866b73

“You won’t get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. There’s only one way to get real gun control: Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up and if you don’t actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time… It’s a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun controllers. I happen to know this from personal experience.” – President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

Just hours after a lone gunman open fired on students in a Florida high school, killing at least 17, comedian Chelsea Handler took to Twitter to capitalize on the tragic incident and blame Republicans, saying that they now “have blood on their hands.”

Handler, a self-proclaimed political activist, posted a tweet about midterm elections, urging voters “to elect candidates that are not funded by the NRA” and “who won’t allow kids to go to school and get shot.”

It turns out that the NRA and the Republicans had nothing to do with it, as the Homicidal Maniac, one Nikolas Cruz, is a 19 year old who was expelled from the school for disciplinary reason.

Per Fox News’s Trace Gallagher, courtesy of thegatewaypundit.com

“We should also point out that we have scoured his social media footprint. We have mentioned this before, but he was clearly obsessed with guns because he was attached and followed all types of gun groups, as well as resistance groups — the Syrian resistance and Iraqi fighters. Remember, we said earlier that he was actually involved in a chat room discussion, YouTube chat room discussion online about the building of bombs.”

Of course Chelsea Handler was not the only high-profile Liberal to holler for gun control after this latest horrible mass murder. California Senator Kamal Harris had to open her big mouth about it, also…

Have you ever watched a mother, when their toddler bumps their head on a table, attempt to distract their child, by pretending to spank the table, while saying, “Bad Table”?

That, in a nutshell, is what Former President Barack Hussein Obama attempted to do by writing Executive Orders and what current Liberal Celebrities and Congressional Democrats are calling for, in an attempt to limit the Constitutional Right of American Citizens to own guns.

By creating new restrictions, instead of enforcing gun laws which are already in place, these clueless Liberal Celebrities and Democratic Politicians are shifting the blame from those who operate outside of the law to America and her citizens.

The Democrats’ quest for “Gun Control”, if successful, would only succeed in controlling law-abiding American Citizens, instead of punishing those who operate outside of our laws, such as the Mass Murderer Nikolas Cruz and the thugs who have turned Former President Obama’s “hometown” of Chicago and my hometown of Memphis into their own personal “Killing Fields”.

The leader of the bloody Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin, once wrote that

One man with a gun can control 100 without one.

If the Democrats had their way, we would live in a country under the oppression of restrictive gun laws, which would be modeled after those in Europe. And, as past events have plainly shown, those restrictive gun laws have allowed Islamic Terrorists and other murderous nut jobs to kill innocent people unchallenged, because none of those innocent people were allowed to carry a weapon with which to defend themselves.

In fact, in some cases, even the police officers, who first arrived on the scene, were unarmed, and had to call for additional forces, thus giving the perpetrators more time to murder and maim the innocent.

One of our Founding Fathers, Dr. Benjamin Franklin, once wrote,

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

Like Dr. Franklin and the rest of those who have fought for our freedom, average Americans realize what Democrats do not.

The problem in stopping mass murders like yesterday’s from happening is not that there are not enough gun laws. The problem is the gun laws on the books are not properly enforced.

The dissolution of the Family Unit, the revolving door state of our Municipal Justice Systems, and, in the case of the Nikolas Cruz, the lack of recognition and treatment of the mentally ill and wannabe Terrorists, have a lot to do with the rise of these horrible massacres in America and the horrible violence which plagues cities like Chicago and Memphis.

What Liberals have never understood, in their continuous quest to take away the Second Amendment rights of average Americans is that we will never surrender our Constitutional Right to defend ourselves and our families from enemies foreign and domestic.

What part of the words quote “shall not be infringed” do you Liberals not understand?

Passing more restrictive gun laws is not the answer.

Criminals are called “outlaws” for a reason.

They will find a way to get guns. They do now.

This is a people problem. Not a gun problem.

After all, have you ever seen a gun pull its own trigger?

Why is a Military Parade Okay in 2014, “Militaristic” in 2018?

February 11, 2018

There are some who’ve forgotten why we have a military. It’s not to promote war, it’s to be prepared for peace. – Ronald Reagan

On Sunday, April 13, 2014, The New York Daily News ran the following story…

Soldiers of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars stood Sunday with Sen. Chuck Schumer to call for a ticker-tape parade along the historic Canyon of Heroes in lower Manhattan.

Schumer (D-N.Y.) says the Big Apple should host a bells-and-whistles procession to honor vets of the two post-9/11 campaigns.

“With the war in Afghanistan winding down, now is the time to keep with longstanding American tradition and kick off a campaign for the first New York City welcome home parade for troops that served in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Schumer said, flanked by vets of several wars on Broadway at the Bowling Green bull statue.

“With the completion of the Afghanistan combat mission expected at the end of this year, and with Iraq’s official end far behind us, it’s time for New York to stake its claim and for the Department of Defense to join in planning this welcome home celebration.”

Schumer said he secured Mayor de Blasio’s blessing Saturday.

“The brave men and women who have selflessly served our nation with courage and skill in Iraq and Afghanistan deserve a recognition for their sacrifice,” de Blasio said. “I stand with Senator Schumer in his call for a parade to honor our veteran heroes, and New York City would be proud to host this important event.”

Ever since President Trump announced his wish to have a Military Parade to honor our Best and Brightest, Modern American Liberals have been freaking out like the millennials who are staging wakes when their favorite fast food restaurant closes.

Now, to be fair, they are not alone.

There are those on the other side of the political aisle who object to this idea as well, stating that it is something that one would see under an authoritarian regime, and that it would be more prudent to spend the costs of such a parade on bettering Veterans’ Benefits and improving the care that Veterans receive at VA Hospitals.

Taken at face value, these are legitimate points.

However, the President’s wish is not without precedent.

According to Smithsonianmag.org,

Military parades outside of holidays such as Veterans Day, the Fourth of July or Memorial Day aren’t typical in this country in recent decades, but there is a history of them.

These parades date back to the early days of our nation and continued through the 20th Century, at the end of Word War II, at President John F. Kennedy’s Inauguration, and, most recently, in 1991, when 8,000 troops marched down Constitution Avenue in Washington, DC, celebrating the end of the Persian Gulf War. The ceremony featured a fireworks show that evening, attended by 800,000 Americans.

As far as the objections being brought by the Far Left-controlled Democratic Party…

wanted to use their money to further his socialization of America, Obama placed our Armed Forces in an untenable situation.

Distinguished American Veteran, Former United States Representative Lt. Col. Allen B. West once wrote the following, concerning Obama’s treatment of our Armed Forces:

Barack Hussein Obama cannot be seen as a Commander-in-Chief and I will never refer to him that way. His fundamental transformation of America means weakening our nation and leaving our Republic less secure. I can just imagine how appreciative and elated his Muslim Brotherhood friends are at this point, to include Turkey’s President Erdogan, as well as the mad mullahs in Iran.

Spot on.

I remember my ex-brother-in-law, Dave. My late step-sister met him at the USO in Memphis during the Vietnam War. David was a Polish Catholic from outside of Detroit, a Navy guy who received his training in the computers of the day, while in service to our country. When he got out, they got married and moved to Dearborn (now Dearbornistan), Michigan, where he got a job with Burroughs. I remember Dave, because he was always good to me, even though I was just a runt kid, 15 years younger than him. I remember him cleaning his service rifle, sitting on the living room floor of our house, and, making sure it was empty, allowing me to to hold it. At the time, I thought that was the coolest thing I had ever done.

I also remember John. John was a friend of my sister’s, who stayed with us, because of problems at home. As I have related before, my folks were the ones whom all my sister’s friends would talk to when they had trouble at home. John was great guy, as well, who wound up enlisting and serving in that “crazy Asian War”, as Kenny Rogers and Mel Tillis once referred to it in song.

I have related before about my own Daddy and my Uncles, and their service in World War II. I have also had friends that 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 duty to God and Country.

Our Brightest and Best, who wear the uniform today, are no less dedicated. They deserve to be treated with respect, not as pawns in a game of political expediency, whose rules as followed by the Previous Presidential Administration. included social experimentation, political correctness, and blatant disrespect by the then-Commander-in-Chief himself.

The greatest American President in my lifetime, Ronald Reagan, once said,

Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.

Reagan was a realist. He realized that, as President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt once advised, the best way to keep America safe, is to “Speak softly and carry a big stick”.

We suffered for 8 long years under a president who spoke like a wuss and carried a feather pillow, a Mexican Flag, and a prayer rug.

And, you wonder why our Best and Brightest always erupt appreciation for their Present Commander-in-Chief, Donald J. Trump?

They are simply happy that they once again have a Commander-in-Chief who appreciates them. And, one who actually has their back for a change.

Until He Comes,

While Barack Hussein Obama was our Armed Forces Commander in-Chief (Thank God, he isn’t any more), the responsibility for everything that happened to the men and women serving in our armed forces, in which some part of our federal government is involved, both during and after their service, fell on his shoulders and his alone.

Through his treatment of our Heroes as “ancillary” servants to be used for social experimentation and budget cutting, when he wanted to use their money to further his socialization of America, Obama placed our Armed Forces in an untenable situation.

Distinguished American Veteran, Former United States Representative Lt. Col. Allen B. West once wrote the following, concerning Obama’s treatment of our Armed Forces:

While a small token at best, the parade which President Trump has proposed would be a step in that direction.

A Day For Truth: FISA Memo to be Released Today. – A KJ Analysis

February 1, 2018

untitled (188)

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. – Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday released a 51-page unclassified transcript of the contentious meeting this week between Republicans and Democrats, during which members voted to publicly release the classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.

The transcript shows Democrats strongly objecting to the release, accusing Republicans of producing the memo to benefit President Donald Trump.

The motion to release the memo passed on a party-line basis. On Tuesday night, Trump, who has the ability to stop the memo’s release, was overheard telling a GOP lawmaker at the State of the Union that he’s “100 percent” supportive of the document’s release — although it hasn’t happened yet.

“I want to begin by expressing my alarm at where we are in this committee,” California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the panel, said in the meeting. “I have served on the committee for 10 years now. This is the first time we have sought to declassify highly sensitive information for a political reason. It is, I think, a terrible line to cross.”

The transcript release followed the FBI saying Wednesday that the bureau had “grave concerns” about releasing the classified memo.

 “With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it,” said the FBI statement. “As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

Five career officials from the FBI came to see White House Chief of Staff John Kelly late Tuesday afternoon to view an amended version of the memo — the product of a review by the White House, according to a senior administration official.

Fox News also has learned FBI Director Christopher Wray had 90 minutes with the four-page memo during his rare Sunday trip to Capitol Hill where he was joined by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. 

“Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies,” Nunes said Wednesday.

According to the transcript of the fractious meeting, Democratic Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois pressed Nunes on whether he had coordinated  with the White House in crafting the memo for the public to see.

“When you, as the majority, conceived of doing this memo for release to the body and to the public, the preparation, the thought of doing it, the consultation of it, was any of this done after/during conversations or consultations with anyone in the White House?” Quigley asked.

Nunes replied, “I would just answer, as far as I know, no.”

The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to accounts of KGB activity in Russia.

Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump “dossier” played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one Trump associate.

During Monday’s meeting, the GOP-majority committee voted against releasing a countering memo written by Democrats.

Of course the FBI does not want it to be made public today.

It will expose the FBI Hierarchy’s abuse of their positions and their attempt to interfere with the 2016 Presidential Election and the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

The Democratic Elite do not want it to be released either…for the same reasons.

As Rush Limbaugh said on his program on Tuesday…

It’s not a memo. It is a four-page report. It’s a summary of what the House Intelligence Committee has learned in its investigation of Trump colluding with Russia. Trey Gowdy, in numerous TV appearances yesterday and today has told us what’s in this memo. We’ve also learned that there’s some additional things like Rod Rosenstein may be prominently featured in this memo. You know why? And this is fascinating.

I’m getting a little bit ahead of the game here. Folks, it’s just a summary. Essentially, it’s the Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee getting sick and tired of waiting because there hasn’t been any evidence produced whatsoever on the original claim. It’s been over a year. There’s no sign the special counsel’s winding down at all, and so the Republicans, “Well, let me tell you why they haven’t found anything,” and they’re gonna lay out the evidence of how this whole thing is tainted.

That’s the purpose of it. That’s why the Democrats are panicked. And so Pencil Neck Adam Schiff has decided to write his own memo to refute the “Dennis” Nunes memo. Devin Nunes, I know. I just can’t help mocking Pelosi, folks. I’m sorry. Now, the Democrats are panicked because the Nunes memo is going to tell everybody in America who has exposure to it what you and I already know.

See, folks, we live in a bifurcated culture, and the people that read the New York Times do not know who Fusion GPS is. The people that read the New York Times and watch CNN do not know that Hillary Clinton paid for the Trump dossier to be written. They don’t know this because that hasn’t been reported.

The Democrat side of things has been able to bottle up everything you and I know about what could be called malfeasance, partisanship, and any other number of things that you would define as attacks on Trump and attempts to ruin his presidency, before that to ruin his campaign, and then after that, to try to ruin his transition.

…The Democrats have grand designs of winning back the House and even the Senate this year and then impeaching and convicting Donald Trump. And the memo that is about to be released is going to put a big dent in those plans.

As I have stated before, what has been playing out since being set in motion by the previous Presidential Administration, is nothing less than, as Radio Host Mark Levin has referred to it, a “silent coup”…a way to usurp our Constitution and the System of Checks and Balances which our Founding Fathers put in place to maintain and prosper our Constitutional Republic.

The last two years have seemed surreal to me.

The lengths which the Democrats and their Financial Backer, the Puppet Master himself, George Soros, have gone to in order to try to keep Trump from winning the Presidency and then, to keep him from “Making America Great Again” through civil violence, lies, innuendos, threats, and even Twitter Bots, has been something that I have never seen before in my 59 years.

And now, today, we are going to be exposed to information that those who have been charged to protect American Citizens, instead, attempted to “frame” a private citizen who beat a bunch of Professional Politicians to win the 2016 Presidential Election.

The Deep State Operatives, like the Democrats themselves who sat on their hands during the State of the Union Address, have been blinded by their hatred for Trump to the point where his defeat and banishment from the Oval Office means more to them than love of country and the welfare of the American Citizenry.

Also, as I have written before, I am quite aware that J. Edgar Hoover had files on politicians and celebrities, which he used as “leverage” to keep his job and to hide his kinky proclivities.

But even J. Edgar Hoover never took his vendettas this far.

This whole bloody mess is a result of a Democratic Administration and the zealots in the FBI and other Alphabet Agencies, who became Deep State Operatives in defense of the Washingtonian Status Quo which they had become an integral part of under the Obama Administration.

“Absolute power corrupts absolutely” and these individuals who had obtained levels of importance within the Federal Government took it upon themselves to choose whom they thought would be the best choice for the next president of the United States, and it wasn’t Donald J. Trump.

They did not care whom Average Americans living in America’s Heartland wanted….simply because they “knew what was best for us”.

If, as a Sovereign Nation, we are to rid ourselves of the Machiavellian plans and schemes of a political ideology which seeks to overrule the will of the people through the use of Machiavellian schemes and plans acted on by Deep State Operatives within our own government, ALL PERTINENT INFORMATION MUST BE MADE PUBLIC.

Today , if things go as expected with be a Historically important day in the life of our country.

Today will not be a “political” day.

It will be a day for TRUTH.

It will be the day when American turns the light on the cockroaches infesting the dark, dank cellars of our Federal Government…and we watch them run for cover.

Trump Delivers “Yuge” SOTU Address: “Together, We are Rediscovering the American Way”

January 31, 2018

2018-state-union-address

“We want every American to know the dignity of a hard day’s work; we want every child to be safe in their home at night, and we want every citizen to be proud of this land that we love.” – President Donald J. Trump – 2017 State of the Union Address

Last night, as my bride and I arrived home from our Tuesday Night Church Small Group Fellowship, we immediately turned on Fox News to watch the 45th President of the United States of America deliver his State of the Union Address.

FoxNews.com posted the following summary of the address…

President Trump kicked off his first State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night by calling on lawmakers of both parties to “set aside our differences” in the combative political environment and work together in “unity.”

“Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve,” the president said.

The president used his hour-long speech to extend an olive branch to his critics and signal a willingness to make bipartisan deals on second-year-agenda priorities like immigration and infrastructure.

“We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag,” he said. “Together, we are rediscovering the American way.”

He began his speech by praising heroes during natural disasters and tragedies over the last year, including during the summer shooting of Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice.

“With us tonight is one of the toughest people ever to serve in this House — a guy who took a bullet, almost died, and was back to work three and a half months later: the legend from Louisiana, Congressman Steve Scalise,” Trump said.

Like other presidents before him, Trump used the address to tout first-year accomplishments like “massive tax cuts,” regulation rollbacks, the elimination of ObamaCare’s individual mandate and more.

“This is our new American moment,” Trump said. “There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.”

Trump also seemed to criticize the protests by NFL football players who have been kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against police shootings of African-Americans.

He praised Preston Sharp, a 12-year-old boy from California, who started a movement to place flags at the graves of fallen service members.

“Preston’s reverence for those who have served our nation reminds us why we salute our flag, why we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the national anthem,” he said.

On immigration, the White House is pushing a plan to broaden eligibility for the DACA program – which gives a reprieve to illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, and which Trump is planning to end absent a legislative solution – in exchange for border wall funding and other big changes. The negotiations could be critical for talks to keep the government running past a Feb. 8 deadline.

The president extended an “open hand” to members of both parties to “protect our citizens, of every background, color, and creed,” in an apparent reference to DACA and immigration talks.

Further, he calls for bipartisan cooperation on infrastructure: “America is a nation of builders. We built the Empire State Building in just 1 year — is it not a disgrace that it can now take 10 years just to get a permit approved for a simple road?”

President Trump went on to speak about other subjects, such as Religious Liberty and South Korea.

When I sat down to write this post last night, I first read Politico.com’s summary of the SOTU. What they wrote was nothing like what I watched on my television last night.

They said that President Trump delivered what was supposed to be an optimistic speech in a voice filled with sadness and anger.

Funny. That’s not what I saw.

I saw an American President doing what he does best: speaking in clear, concise tones, expressing optimism, a genuine concern for and love of America and its Citizens.

While on the outside , Trump remains the bombastic American Businessman and Citizen Statesman that average Americans grew to love during the campaign, on the inside, he is a thoughtful compassionate leader who cares very deeply about the American people and those who are protecting us from our enemies, giving up their very lives in order to secure our American Freedom.

Unlike Obama, Trump does not view our Brightest and Best as Lab Rats to be used in Social Experimentation. He views them as our sons and daughter to be respected, honored, cherished, and solemnly and respectfully honored and remembered when they give their lives for a flag which some think nothing of defiling.

President Trump was at his best last night, presenting American Heroes and one very special South Korean Hero, who escaped from the North and who is now fighting to free his people from the ruthless dictatorship of Kim Jong Un.

As I was watching our 45th President, Donald J. Trump (man, that feels good to write!), deliver his First State of the Union Address, several things struck me.

He referenced the God of Abraham, Our Creator, several times, even reminded those in the Chamber with him “In God We Trust”.

Unlike Obama, he did not make the speech all about him.

He made a point of saying that when we are together as a nation, we can do ANYTHING.

He spoke in glowing positive terms about America and its people.

He acknowledged those who protect us: The Men and Women in Blue and our Brightest and best.

He pledged to end the VISA Lottery System and Chain Migration in order to keep America safe from those who wish us harm.

He reminded those in the Chamber that “Americans are Dreamers, too”.

He told us average “forgotten” Americans that we will be able to keep more of our paychecks and THAT WE MATTER.

He mentioned that unemployment is down and that Black and Hispanic Unemployment are at record lows.

He emphatically stated that because of the sacrifices made for us by those who have died while protecting our freedom, we stand and put our hand over our hearts for the National Anthem.

And while President Trump was making this stirring speech, where were the Democrats?

Sitting on their hands and appearing as if their dog had been run over by a Steamroller.

Last night proved two things:

Americans made the right choice on November 8, 2016.

And, the Democratic Party stands for nothing…except hating President Donald J. Trump and Traditional American Values

…including Patriotism.

FISA Memo Released By Congress. Dems and MSM Blaming Everyone But the Guilty.

January 30, 2018

The best-laid schemes of mice and men oft’ times go awry. – Robert Burns

FoxNews.com reported yesterday that

The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.

The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said.

President Trump now has five days to decide whether he has any objections before the memo can be publicly released.

Last week, a top Justice Department official urged House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes not to release the memo, saying it would be “extraordinarily reckless” and could harm national security and ongoing investigations.

The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.

Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump “dossier” played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one Trump associate.

Schiff said the GOP-majority committee also voted against releasing a counter memo written by Democrats.

“Today this committee voted to put the president’s personal interests, perhaps their own political interests, above the national interests,” the Democrat said.

Another Democratic member, Mike Quiqley of Illinois, described the GOP memo as “a book report by a high school kid at 1 a.m. on two Red Bulls who hasn’t read the book.”

“It’s a contravention of the facts,” he added. “Today was a demonstration that there are no more rules.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement that the committee’s Republicans had “crossed from dangerous irresponsibility and disregard for our national security into the realm of cover up” and “disregarded the warnings of the Justice Department and the FBI.”

“Chairman Nunes’ memo contains significant inaccuracies and omissions that misrepresent the underlying intelligence and jeopardize the effectiveness of our intelligence and law enforcement communities,” Pelosi added.

The vote came the same day that it was reported that FBI official Andrew McCabe has left his post as deputy director.

The White House seems to favor the memo’s release, but wouldn’t explicitly say whether the president will back the effort.

“We want full transparency,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday. “That’s what we have said all along.”

Sanders said they were letting the process play out before officially weighing in.

On Sunday, FBI Director Christopher Wray went to the Capitol to view the four-page memo, sources told Fox News.

According to one source, Wray was asked to point out inaccuracies or other issues with the wording — and said he would need “his people to take a look at it.” The source said the review is ongoing.

South Carolina GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy, who helped write the four-page memo, said Sunday he wants it made public.

He also suggested the memo indeed addresses whether the FBI relied at least in part on the dossier — paid for partially by Democrats and the Clinton campaign during the 2016 presidential election — to apply to a secret federal court to get a surveillance warrant, purportedly on then-Trump adviser Carter Page.

“If you … want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used. … If you are interested in who paid for the dossier … then, yes, you’ll want the memo to come out,” Gowdy told “Fox News Sunday.”

The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and contained opposition research on Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. Steele was hired by the U.S. firm Fusion GPS, which commissioned the research with funding from the Democratic National Committee and the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. At the same time, the firm was allegedly doing work to help the Russian government fight sanctions.

Requests for surveillance warrants are made through the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, also known as the FISA court, and target suspected foreign spies inside the United States.

Responding to reports the U.S. extended surveillance on him last spring, Carter Page told Fox News that U.S.-Russia relations have been “dominated by misunderstandings throughout much of the past 70 years, since the original McCarthy era. I harbor no ill will towards anyone for past xenophobic biases and only hope that justice is eventually served.”

For those of us who are news /political junkies, the past couple of years have been positively amazing.

America has witnessed the rise of an American Businessman/Entrepreneur/Television Star, whom none of the “Political Pundits”, both amateur and professional, gave a snowball’s chance in July, become President of the United States of America..

And, when the “impossible” happened on November 8, 2016, it turned the world of these pundits and that of the Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media, Internet Trolls, and the rest of Modern American Liberals topsy-turvy.

When it was happening, I always wondered why the Democratic Party was not more worried about Donald J. Trump than they were, since it was obvious to anyone who did not live on the East or Left Coast that the Democrats’ Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton, was a lousy choice.

Now, like you, gentle readers, I have come to realize that the Democrats were not overly worried that Trump would defeat the Queen of Mean because they knew that the fix was in.

They knew that Deep State Operatives, working within the Department of Justice and the FBI, were working behind the scenes to make sure that Trump would not win the election and become our 45th President.

Thank God they underestimated average Americans and our desire to end the National Nightmare of the previous 8 years under the Obama Administration’s failed policies, foreign and domestic.

Once Trump got in, the fake Russian Collusion Narrative was presented to the MSM, the Democrat’s Propaganda Arm, who repeated it morning, noon, and night, especially after Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to “investigate” the Trump Campaign.

If you seriously look at the intricacy and all of the moving parts involved in floating this false narrative, it is both impressive…and chilling.

It is also treasonous.

Which explains the reaction of those who have seen the 4-page FISA Memo, including FBI Director Christopher Wray, who told Andrew McCabe to go ahead and “retire” and not to let the screen door hit him where the Good Lord split him.

The reaction of Democrats and the Main Stream Media (but, I repeat myself) has been no less harsh.

The Congressional Democrats threatened to write their own memo and release it, abruptly deep-sixing that idea when they realized the severity of the situation they now face.

Instead, both them and the Liberal Political Pundits on television and Twitter are reacting like schoolyard bullies and Internet Trolls do when someone fights back.

They are whining and crying incessantly, blaming everything on Trump. Or, like Schiff, they are blaming average Americans for not realizing that we are too ignorant to understand all of this “high level secret information”.

To illustrate what they are sounding like, please allow me to share a story in closing that a friend posted on Facebook the other day…

A policeman is driving in a neighborhood one day when he sees a little boy sitting in a little red wagon, being pulled by a cat which has a rope tied around its…err…privates. The policeman gets out of his car and asks the little boy,

“Hey, sport! Why don’t you have your rope tied around that cat’s neck? You may be able to go faster.”

The little boy looks up at the officer and replies,

“Yes. sir. But, then I wouldn’t have a siren.”

The Deep State Operatives in the DOJ and the FBI, the Democrat Leadership, and the Main Stream Media are the cat.

Trump is the little boy.

Trump Wins the Government Shutdown. Why Did the Dems Fold? – A KJ Analysis

January 23, 2018

dems-deal-gov-shutdown

“The Democrats are now executing pages in their playbook that they’ve executed countless times before. Original technique, original strategies? There aren’t any anymore. The Democrats have become the most predictable group that we have.” – Rush Limbaugh, 1/22/2018

FoxNews.com reports that

The Senate on Monday voted 81-18 to break a Democratic filibuster on a stalled government spending bill, clearing the way for Congress to approve the stopgap measure and end the three-day government shutdown.

Democrats effectively backed off their opposition, after being given assurances from majority Republicans.

Before the vote, Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer made clear that Senate Democrats would supply the GOP-controlled Senate with the votes needed, but only in exchange for “fair” and immediate efforts to consider legislation that would protect illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.

“We will vote today to reopen the government,” Schumer, a New York Democrat, said on the Senate floor. “In a few hours, the government will reopen.”

The 100-member, Republican-controlled chamber will now need only a simple majority to pass the temporary spending bill that would keep the government open until Feb. 8. The House would then have to approve the bill, sending it to President Trump’s desk.

The funding and reopening of the government would allow U.S. military personnel to be paid, end the furlough of nearly 1 million federal workers and resume all federal services and operations.

But congressional lawmakers made clear after the test vote that they’re still faced with challenges, like how to fund hurricane disaster relief and craft a comprehensive immigration reform bill on which both parties can agree.

“We still have a lot more work to do,” said Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa.

After days and weeks of blaming and finger-pointing, a bipartisan group of senators met Sunday and brokered a deal in which rank-and-file members would provide the 60 votes in exchange for Senate leaders’ promise to immediately proceed to immigration reform.

Democrats largely opposed the stopgap spending bill because it did not include provisions to protect the illegal immigrants from deportation under former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order.

President Trump last year set a deadline of early March to end the protections. The president has indicated that he wants to provide permanent protections for the young illegal immigrants but has insisted that border security, particularly funding for his U.S.-Mexico border wall, be included in any such deal.

Under the apparent deal to end the filibuster, Schumer said Monday they would negotiate on immigration, and immediately consider such legislation if there’s no agreement by Feb. 8.

Schumer lauded the bipartisan group’s weekend efforts and suggested the group could lead efforts to replace DACA with permanent, legislative protections.

However, he also needled Trump, whom he said on Friday rejected his compromise plan that included money for the border wall.

“Today we enter the third day of the Trump shutdown,” Schumer said before saying we would provide the votes to get to the spending bill. Republicans call it the “Schumer Shutdown.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., then thanked Schumer and said: “I think if we’ve learned anything during this process, it’s that a strategy to shut down the government over the issue of illegal immigration is something the American people didn’t understand and would not have understood in the future. So I’m glad we’ve gotten past that.”

With Republicans having just 50 senators available to vote Monday, they needed the support of roughly a dozen Democratic senators to break the filibuster. They got 33, according to the Associated Press.

The 18 senators who didn’t vote to end debate included Republican Sens. Mike Lee, of Utah, and Rand Paul, of Kentucky.

The 15 Democrats in opposition were Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, both of Connecticut; Cory Booker and Bob Menendez, both of New Jersey; Catherine Cortez Masto, of Nevada; Kirsten Gillibrand, of New York; Mazie Hirono, of Hawaii; Patrick Leahy, of Vermont; Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren, both of Massachusetts; Jon Tester, of Montana, Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, both of Oregon; and Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein, both of California. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, also voted in opposition.

Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain did not vote because he’s home fighting cancer.

McConnell on Sunday night indicated a deal was in the works to break the filibuster, in exchange for immediately addressing Democrats’ desire for immigration reform.

“When the Democrat filibuster of the government funding bill ends, the serious, bipartisan negotiations that have been going on for months now to resolve our unfinished business — military spending; disaster relief; health care; immigration and border security — will continue,” he said Sunday in announcing the Monday vote.

“It would be my intention to resolve these issues as quickly as possible … Importantly, when I proceed to the immigration debate, it will have an amendment process that is fair to all sides. But the first step in any of this is re-opening the government and preventing any further delay.”

Early Monday, before the vote, the Trump White House and Capitol Hill Republicans cranked up the pressure on Democrats to abandon their immediate demands for immigration measures and vote in support of the temporary spending bill.

“They shut down the government,” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning. “The pressure is on them.”

President Trump tweeted that Democrats shut down the government to appease the “far left base” and are now “powerless” to change course.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/955428815777533952

“The Democrats are turning down services and security for citizens in favor of services and security for non-citizens. Not good!” he tweeted.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/955426609326100480

The vote Monday was the GOP-controlled Senate’s second attempt to break the filibuster, after failing to get the required 60 votes Friday. The Friday night vote was 50-49.

So, gentle readers…why did Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Far Left butt-kissing Democrats surrender to President Donald J. Trump and the Republicans?

Of course, you will never hear the word “surrender ” in the Main Stream Media’s accounts of the end of Schumer’s Shutdown, but, that is exactly what happened.

Conservative Political Pundits, including the Maha Rushie himself, stated that the shutdown was cooked up by the Democrats in order to distract from Trump’s Economic Boom, which shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

This being the case, the Democrats certainly could not admit to it, so, they conjured up a never-ending fountain of crocodile tears for the plight of the “poor Dreamers”, adults who came here illegally as children and have done nothing since then to become legal.

In other words, gentle readers, Dreamers want all of the privilege of being an American Citizen with no personal responsibility attached.

So, with an excuse for shutting down the government fabricated, Chucky and his merry band of Marxists fulfilled their Vision Quest and shut down OUR Federal Government in the name of lawbreakers who should have never been here in the first place.

Brilliant plan, right?

Au contraire, mon frere.

Republicans started getting the attention of average Americans by focusing on the fact that the hard-earned paychecks of our Brightest and Best would not be delivered because of the Democrats placing the welfare of illegal immigrants over that of the sons and daughters of average American Citizens who are serving our country.

There is an old adage in show business stating that if you write a play for the theater or a screenplay for a Hollywood Movie, you had better make sure before you sink money into it that it will “play well in Peoria”, meaning that average Americans would like it and support it.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, and amusingly for the rest of us, the cause du jour which they staked their shutdown on, did NOT “play well in Peoria”.

Judging by how quickly the Dems folded, their internal polling numbers must have resembled the average I.Q. of those kids out there taking the Tide Pod Challenge.

Another factor which went against the Dems’ chance for a victorious outcome to their shutdown, was the fact that we have a sitting American President who is not a professional politician, but rather, a “Citizen Statesman”, who is an expert in negotiation.

He may negotiate…but Trump NEVER backs down.

The last factor which I believe has something to do with the Dems ending the Shutdown, is the fact that Chucky and the Democrats are watching a Political Tsunami building size and momentum offshore, which is heading straight for them, in the form of an investigation into the Deep State Operation against the candidacy of Donald J. Trump, which has been dubbed “Obamagate”.

With a “shocking” 4-page memo detailing covert and treasonous activity designed to usurp the will of the people by the Obama Administration about to be released, Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Democrat Hierarchy realized that they were in an untenable position.

They had to “stop the bleeding” before they “bled out”.

Gentle readers, I cannot remember a time when the Republicans came out on the winning side of a Government Shutdown.

But then again, this is the first time in what seems like forever that they were following the lead of an American President who refused to back down.

“Sorry, Folks. America is Closed.” Dems Shut Down Our Government Over the “Rights” of Illegals

January 20, 2018

Donald_Trump_Chuck_Schumer-2

“This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators. When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform,” – White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders

FoxNews.com reports that

The deadline arrived without a deal. The U.S. government shut down at midnight Friday after Congress failed to overcome a partisan divide over immigration and spending.

In a late-night vote, Senate Democrats joined to block a bill that would have kept the government running until mid-February. A flurry of last-minute negotiations failed to produce an agreement.

Democrats tried to use the Friday night funding deadline to win concessions from Republicans, including an extension of DACA, an Obama-era program protecting some young immigrants from deportation. The program is set to expire in March. Republicans sought more time for talks, but Democrats refused.

The shutdown is only the fourth government closure in a quarter-century. It will only partially curb government operations.

Uniformed service members, health inspectors, and law enforcement officers are set to work without pay. But Social Security and most other safety net programs are unaffected.

If no deal is brokered by Monday, hundreds of thousands of federal employees are set to be furloughed.

The White House and Capitol Hill will be working with skeleton staffs, but some government agencies, like the Environmental Protection Agency, have said they were able to shift funding around to keep most workers on the job. National parks and federal museums will be open, but with potentially reduced services.

Earlier Friday night, President Donald Trump seemed pessimistic that a deal could be reached in time.

“Not looking good for our great Military or Safety & Security on the very dangerous Southern Border,” the president tweeted. “Dems want a Shutdown in order to help diminish the great success of the Tax Cuts, and what they are doing for our booming economy.”

Negotiations, however, continued through the evening, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., working to pass a resolution to keep the government open, White House sources said.

Earlier in the day, demonstrators were seen protesting in support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in the Russell Senate Office Building. Democrats refused to back a short-term spending bill unless it includes protections for illegal immigrants brought to the country as children.

“Republicans – who control the House, Senate, and WH – are on the verge of making #TrumpShutdown a reality because they refuse to protect DREAMers and provide long-term certainty for our military, the opioid crisis, CHIP, and other key issues,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted late Friday night.

During the day Friday, Schumer met with President Trump at the White House as part of an effort to avert the imminent shutdown.

That meeting came as the White House coined a decidedly Trumpian phrase in the battle to assign blame for the standoff, branding it the “Schumer Shutdown.”

A senior White House official told Fox News that the Trump-Schumer meeting was productive, but there was no deal yet. Still, the president labeled the meeting “excellent” in a tweet.

“Making progress,” Trump wrote, adding that a “four week extension would be best!”

“We had a long and detailed meeting,” Schumer said in a statement. “We discussed all of the major outstanding issues, we made some progress, but we still have a good number of disagreements. The discussions will continue.”

According to a White House source, Schumer arrived in the Oval Office and presented the president with a list of demands on domestic issues that went well beyond just DACA. The president listened to Schumer and appeared perplexed as Schumer rattled off his agenda items, the source said. The president told Schumer he wasn’t going to get all of those demands in a spending bill.

Schumer, the source said, did appear open to considering a continuing resolution that would keep the government funded for five days. The official White House position is still a 30-day extension.

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney on Friday accused the Democrats of opposing a bill that contains nothing they are against.

“They don’t oppose anything in the bill, but they are opposing the bill,” Mulvaney said, pointing to popular measures in the bill such as funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

Democrats seemed to be aware of the importance of messaging, with Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., taking to the Senate floor with an image declaring the logjam a “Trump Shutdown,” quoting a tweet from President Trump from May saying “our country needs a good ‘shutdown.'”

Markey blasted Republicans complaining about the threat of a shutdown, telling them to “spare me your crocodile tears.”

The Republican-dominated House of Representatives passed a one-month bill Thursday night by a vote of 230-197 that broke down largely along party lines, with 11 Republicans voting no and six Democrats voting yes.

Senate Democrats have said that Democrats want any spending bill to include a fix for DACA. Trump repealed the order in September, and gave Congress a deadline of March to come up with a legislative fix.

“Unless we pass the #DreamAct, I won’t support another short-term funding bill,” Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., tweeted Thursday. “Our Dreamers have waited far too long for a chance to be a part of this country’s future.”

Republicans had hoped to back Democrats into a corner by attaching a six-year CHIP extension to the bill. But Democrats have so far refused to budge.

Republicans have repeatedly put the blame firmly on Democrats’ positioning on DACA as the reason for the looming shutdown.

“Apparently they believe the issue of illegal immigration is more important than anything else, than the government services the American people depend on,” McConnell said.

President Trump has repeatedly urged Congress to keep the government open, warning that a shutdown will harm the U.S. military. The White House announced that Trump would not travel to Florida, as previously scheduled, until the continuing resolution is signed.

What caused the Democrats to shut down OUR Government?

On June 15, 2012, President Obama issued an executive order enacting his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which essentially put into effect various aspects of the DREAM Act. Specifically, the DACA order gave lawful permanent residency status and work authorization to anyone who: (a) had arrived in America illegally as a minor; (b) had lived in the U.S. for at least five years; (c) was either a current student or a high-school graduate; or (d) had served in the military and was not yet 35 years old.

With this executive order, Obama did precisely what he had said, numerous times, that he had no constitutional authority to do. For example, in a July 2011 speech to the National Council of La Raza, the president stated: “Now, I know some people want me to bypass Congress and change the laws on my own. Believe me, the idea of doing things on my own is very tempting. I promise you. Not just on immigration reform. But that’s not how our system works. That’s not how our democracy functions. That’s not how our Constitution is written.”

Why would Obama have done something like that?

Simple. He was preparing to capitalize on predicted future migratory trends in order to grow his political party.

Obama created a charity which rewarded the breaking and entering of our Sovereign Country at American Taxpayers’ expense.

And now, rather than secure our country’s Southern Border and fund our Best and Brightest, our American Armed Forces, the Far Left Democratic Party has shut down our Federal Government in defense of 800,000 ILLEGAL ALIENS.

And, here is the most paradoxical and hypocritical part of this whole fiasco: The Democrats couldn’t give a ticker’s damn about the “Dreamers” as individuals. They are simply a “political tool” which they are using en masse to continue the “radical change” begun under the Obama Administration…forcefully devolving America from a Constitutional Republic to a Democratic Socialist Third World S—hole.

The Democrats kept on pursuing their tone-deaf political strategy of the defense of DACA, believing that the Republicans would cave in,

What they underestimated, or perhaps completely overlooked, blocked by their upturned snooty noses, was the backbone and determination of “Citizen Statesman” Donald J. Trump, the 45th president of the United States of America.

As Trump has proven in the last almost 13 months, he does not participate in the usual Political Games, which have been played for decades up on Capitol Hill.

What we have been witnessing for the past year, is a battle between tired political strategy, which has only succeeded in harming our nation and not helping it, and the tools which a non-politician has brought to the Presidency: courage conviction, common sense, and “the Art of the Deal”.

Trump has been playing a game of chicken with Congressional Democrats and their enablers, the Vichy Republicans…and, they blinked first.

Trump has made Congress work harder for their money, while inadvertently showing their colors to their constituencies, than any president has in decades.

The bottom line is that the politically bestowed “rights” of these “Dreamers” do not supersede the right of Americans to secure our Southern Border and becoming an American Citizen is NOT A RIGHT.

It is a privilege.

Sh-thole, Indeed: A Look Back at The Clinton Foundation Haitian Relief Scam – A KJ Sunday Special Report

January 14, 2018

042415_an_baier2_640

In a private meeting with members of Congress earlier this week, President Donald J. Trump used harsh language in questioning the existing policy of allowing chain migration from devastated third-world countries, such as Haiti, whose population often do not have the skills, nor the ambition, to be productive citizens when they are allowed into our Sovereign Nation.

Needless to say, once his comments were leaked out by Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, the Democrats all had a nationwide screaming hissy fit.

The problem with that is, at least part of the reason for the wretched condition that Haiti is in, can be directly linked to two of the Democrats’ idols whom they have put on a pedestal for years.

This fact has not gone unnoticed by those who pay attention to such things.

Err…like myself…

And, one of these “idols” has lashed back against the criticism.

On July 18, 2016, Townhall.com posted the following…

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following article is excerpted from Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party”.

In January 2015 a group of Haitians surrounded the New York offices of the Clinton Foundation. They chanted slogans, accusing Bill and Hillary Clinton of having robbed them of “billions of dollars.” Two months later, the Haitians were at it again, accusing the Clintons of duplicity, malfeasance, and theft. And in May 2015, they were back, this time outside New York’s Cipriani, where Bill Clinton received an award and collected a $500,000 check for his foundation. “Clinton, where’s the money?” the Haitian signs read. “In whose pockets?” Said Drood Andre of the Commission Against Dictatorship, “We are telling the world of the crimes that Bill and Hillary Clinton are responsible for in Haiti.”

Haitians like Andre may sound a bit strident, but he and the protesters had good reason to be disgruntled. They had suffered a heavy blow from Mother Nature, and now it appeared that they were being battered again — this time by the Clintons. Their story goes back to 2010, when a massive 7.0 earthquake devastated the island, killing more than 200,000 people, leveling 100,000 homes, and leaving 1.5 million people destitute.

The devastating effect of the earthquake on a very poor nation provoked worldwide concern and inspired an outpouring of aid money intended to rebuild Haiti. Countries around the world, as well as private and philanthropic groups such as the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, provided some $10.5 billion in aid, with $3.9 billion of it coming from the United States.

Haitians such as Andre, however, noticed that very little of this aid money actually got to poor people in Haiti. Some projects championed by the Clintons, such as the building of industrial parks and posh hotels, cost a great deal of money and offered scarce benefits to the truly needy. Port-au-Prince was supposed to be rebuilt; it was never rebuilt. Projects aimed at creating jobs proved to be bitter disappointments. Haitian unemployment remained high, largely undented by the funds that were supposed to pour into the country. Famine and illness continued to devastate the island nation.

The Haitians were initially sympathetic to the Clintons. One may say they believed in the message of “hope and change.” With his customary overstatement, Bill told the media, “Wouldn’t it be great if they become the first wireless nation in the world? They could, I’m telling you, they really could.”

I don’t blame the Haitians for falling for it; Bill is one of the world’s greatest story-tellers. He has fooled people far more sophisticated than the poor Haitians. Over time, however, the Haitians wised up. Whatever their initial expectations, many saw that much of the aid money seems never to have reached its destination; rather, it disappeared along the way.

Where did it go? It did not escape the attention of the Haitians that Bill Clinton was the designated UN representative for aid to Haiti. Following the earthquake, Bill Clinton had with media fanfare established the Haiti Reconstruction Fund. Meanwhile, his wife Hillary was the United States secretary of state. She was in charge of U.S. aid allocated to Haiti. Together the Clintons were the two most powerful people who controlled the flow of funds to Haiti from around the world. Haitian deals appeared to be a quid pro quo for filling the coffers of the Clintons.

The Haitian protesters noticed an interesting pattern involving the Clintons and the designation of how aid funds were used. They observed that a number of companies that received contracts in Haiti happened to be entities that made large donations to the Clinton Foundation. The Haitian contracts appeared less tailored to the needs of Haiti than to the needs of the companies that were performing the services. In sum, Haitian deals appeared to be a quid pro quo for filling the coffers of the Clintons.

For example, the Clinton Foundation selected Clayton Homes, a construction company owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, to build temporary shelters in Haiti. Buffett is an active member of the Clinton Global Initiative who has donated generously to the Clintons as well as the Clinton Foundation. The contract was supposed to be given through the normal United Nations bidding process, with the deal going to the lowest bidder who met the project’s standards. UN officials said, however, that the contract was never competitively bid for.

Clayton offered to build “hurricane-proof trailers” but what they actually delivered turned out to be a disaster. The trailers were structurally unsafe, with high levels of formaldehyde and insulation coming out of the walls. There were problems with mold and fumes. The stifling heat inside made Haitians sick and many of them abandoned the trailers because they were ill-constructed and unusable.

The Clintons also funneled $10 million in federal loans to a firm called InnoVida, headed by Clinton donor Claudio Osorio. Osorio had loaded its board with Clinton cronies, including longtime Clinton ally General Wesley Clark; Hillary’s 2008 finance director Jonathan Mantz; and Democratic fundraiser Chris Korge who has helped raise millions for the Clintons.

Normally the loan approval process takes months or even years. But in this case, a government official wrote, “Former President Bill Clinton is personally in contact with the company to organize its logistical and support needs. And as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has made available State Department resources to assist with logistical arrangements.”

InnoVida had not even provided an independently audited financial report that is normally a requirement for such applications. This requirement, however, was waived. On the basis of the Clinton connection, InnoVida’s application was fast-tracked and approved in two weeks.

The company, however, defaulted on the loan and never built any houses. An investigation revealed that Osorio had diverted company funds to pay for his Miami Beach mansion, his Maserati, and his Colorado ski chalet. He pleaded guilty to wire fraud and money laundering in 2013, and is currently serving a twelve-year prison term on fraud charges related to the loan.

Several Clinton cronies showed up with Bill to a 2011 Housing Expo that cost more than $2 million to stage. Bill Clinton said it would be a model for the construction of thousands of homes in Haiti. In reality, no homes have been built. A few dozen model units were constructed but even they have not been sold. Rather, they are now abandoned and have been taken over by squatters.

THE SCHOOLS THEY NEVER BUILT

USAID contracts to remove debris in Port-au-Prince went to a Washington-based company named CHF International. The company’s CEO David Weiss, a campaign contributor to Hillary in 2008, was deputy U.S. trade representative for North American Affairs during the Clinton administration. The corporate secretary of the board, Lauri Fitz-Pegado, served in a number of posts in the Clinton administration, including assistant secretary of commerce.The Clintons claim to have built schools in Haiti. But the New York Times discovered that when it comes to the Clintons, “built” is a term with a very loose interpretation. For example, the newspaper located a school featured in the Clinton Foundation annual report as “built through a Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action.” In reality, “The Clinton Foundation’s sole direct contribution to the school was a grant for an Earth Day celebration and tree-building activity.” The Clintons claim to have built schools in Haiti. But the New York Times discovered that when it comes to the Clintons, ‘built’ is a term with a very loose interpretation.

USAID contracts also went to consulting firms such as New York–based Dalberg Global Development Advisors, which received a $1.5 million contract to identify relocation sites for Haitians. This company is an active participant and financial supporter of the Clinton Global Initiative. A later review by USAID’s inspector general found that Dalberg did a terrible job, naming uninhabitable mountains with steep ravines as possible sites for Haitian rebuilding.

Foreign governments and foreign companies got Haitian deals in exchange for bankrolling the Clinton Foundation. The Clinton Foundation lists the Brazilian construction firm OAS and the InterAmerican Development Bank (IDB) as donors that have given it between $1 billion and $5 billion.

The IDB receives funding from the State Department, and some of this funding was diverted to OAS for Haitian road-building contracts. Yet an IDB auditor, Mariela Antiga, complained that the contracts were padded with “excessive costs” to build roads “no one needed.” Antiga also alleged that IDB funds were going to a construction project on private land owned by former Haitian president Rene Preval — a Clinton buddy — and several of his cronies. For her efforts to expose corruption, Antiga was promptly instructed by the IDB to pack her bags and leave Haiti.

In 2011, the Clinton Foundation brokered a deal with Digicel, a cell-phone-service provider seeking to gain access to the Haitian market. The Clintons arranged to have Digicel receive millions in U.S. taxpayer money to provide mobile phones. The USAID Food for Peace program, which the State Department administered through Hillary aide Cheryl Mills, distributed Digicel phones free to Haitians.

Digicel didn’t just make money off the U.S. taxpayer; it also made money off the Haitians. When Haitians used the phones, either to make calls or transfer money, they paid Digicel for the service. Haitians using Digicel’s phones also became automatically enrolled in Digicel’s mobile program. By 2012, Digicel had taken over three-quarters of the cell-phone market in Haiti.

Digicel is owned by Denis O’Brien, a close friend of the Clintons. O’Brien secured three speaking engagements in his native Ireland that paid $200,000 apiece. These engagements occurred right at the time that Digicel was making its deal with the U.S. State Department. O’Brien has also donated lavishly to the Clinton Foundation, giving between $1 million and $5 million sometime in 2010–2011.

Coincidentally the United States government paid Digicel $45 million to open a hotel in Port-au-Prince. Now perhaps it could be argued that Haitians could use a high-priced hotel to attract foreign investors and provide jobs for locals. Thus far, however, this particular hotel seems to employ only a few dozen locals, which hardly justifies the sizable investment that went into building it. Moreover, there are virtually no foreign investors; the rooms are mostly unoccupied; the ones that are taken seem mainly for the benefit of Digicel’s visiting teams.

In addition, the Clintons got their cronies to build Caracol Industrial Park, a 600-acre garment factory that was supposed to make clothes for export to the United States and create — according to Bill Clinton — 100,000 new jobs in Haiti. The project was funded by the U.S. government and cost hundreds of millions in taxpayer money, the largest single allocation of U.S. relief aid.

Yet Caracol has proven a massive failure. First, the industrial park was built on farmland and the farmers had to be moved off their property. Many of them feel they were pushed out and inadequately compensated. Some of them lost their livelihoods. Second, Caracol was supposed to include 25,000 homes for Haitian employees; in the end, the Government Accountability Office reports that only around 6,000 homes were built. Third, Caracol has created 5,000 jobs, less than 10 percent of the jobs promised. Fourth, Caracol is exporting very few products and most of the facility is abandoned. People stand outside every day looking for work, but there is no work to be had, as Haiti’s unemployment rate hovers around 40 percent.

The Clintons say Caracol can still be salvaged. But former Haitian prime minister Jean Bellerive says, “I believe the momentum to attract people there in a massive way is past. Today, it has failed.” Still, Bellerive’s standard of success may not be the same one used by the Clintons. After all, the companies that built Caracol with U.S. taxpayer money have done fine — even if poor Haitians have seen few of the benefits.

Then there is the strange and somehow predictable involvement of Hillary Clinton’s brother Hugh Rodham. Rodham put in an application for $22 million from the Clinton Foundation to build homes on ten thousand acres of land that he said a “guy in Haiti” had “donated” to him.

“I deal through the Clinton Foundation,” Rodham told the New York Times. “I hound my brother-in-law because it’s his fund that we’re going to get our money from.” Rodham said he expected to net $1 million personally on the deal. Unfortunately, his application didn’t go through.

Rodham had better luck, however, on a second Haitian deal. He mysteriously found himself on the advisory board of a U.S. mining company called VCS. This by itself is odd because Rodham’s resume lists no mining experience; rather, Rodham is a former private detective and prison guard.

The mining company, however, seems to have recognized Rodham’s value. They brought him on board in October 2013 to help secure a valuable gold mining permit in Haiti. Rodham was promised a “finder’s fee” if he could land the contract. Sure enough, he did. For the first time in 50 years, Haiti awarded two new gold mining permits and one of them went to the company that had hired Hillary’s brother. I wouldn’t go so far as to say the Clintons don’t care about Haiti. Yet it seems clear that Haitian welfare is not their priority.

The deal provoked outrage in the Haitian Senate. “Neither Bill Clinton nor the brother of Hillary Clinton are individuals who share the interest of the Haitian people,” said Haitian mining representative Samuel Nesner. “They are part of the elite class who are operating to exploit the Haitian people.”

Is this too harsh a verdict? I wouldn’t go so far as to say the Clintons don’t care about Haiti. Yet it seems clear that Haitian welfare is not their priority. Their priority is, well, themselves. The Clintons seem to believe in Haitian reconstruction and Haitian investment as long as these projects match their own private economic interests. They have steered the rebuilding of Haiti in a way that provides maximum benefit to themselves.

No wonder the Clintons refused to meet with the Haitian protesters. Each time the protesters showed up, the Clintons were nowhere to be seen. They have never directly addressed the Haitians’ claims. Strangely enough, they have never been required to do so. The progressive media scarcely covered the Haitian protest. Somehow the idea of Haitian black people calling out the Clintons as aid money thieves did not appeal to the grand pooh-bahs at CBS News, the New York Times, and NPR.

For most Democrats, the topic is both touchy and distasteful. It’s one thing to rob from the rich but quite another to rob from the poorest of the poor. Some of the Democratic primary support for Bernie Sanders was undoubtedly due to Democrats’ distaste over the financial shenanigans of the Clintons. Probably these Democrats considered the Clintons to be unduly grasping and opportunistic, an embarrassment to the great traditions of the Democratic party.

Regarding the Clinton Foundation, I would probably be underestimating its impact if I said that it was the Biggest Pay-For-Play scheme ever cooked up by a husband and wife Political Team in American History.

Per discoverthenetworks.org,

By the time Clinton left office in February 2013, the charity had received millions of dollars in new or increased payments from at least seven foreign governments. Five of the governments came on board during her tenure as secretary of state while two doubled or tripled their support in that time, according to data provided by CHAI spokeswoman Daley…CHAI should have told the State Department before accepting donations totaling $340,000 from Switzerland’s Agency for Development and Cooperation in 2011 and 2012. However, it did not believe U.S. authorities needed to review the other six governments, including Britain and Australia, she said, citing various reasons.” [Reuters, 3/19/15]

However, it was not just governments who sent money to the Clintons through their Foundation, as was noted by Dinesh D’Souza, in the excerpt from his book seen above.

Again, according to discoverthenetworks.org…

* “The Clinton Foundation swore off donations from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. That didn’t stop the foundation from raising millions of dollars from foreigners with connections to their home governments, a review of foundation disclosures shows. Some donors have direct ties to foreign governments. One is a member of the Saudi royal family. Another is a Ukrainian oligarch and former parliamentarian. Others are individuals with close connections to foreign governments that stem from their business activities. Their professed policy interests range from human rights to U.S.-Cuba relations.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

* During Secretary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, “More than a dozen foreign individuals and their foundations and companies were large donors to the Clinton Foundation… collectively giving between $34 million and $68 million…. Some donors also provided funding directly to charitable projects sponsored by the foundation, valued by the organization at $60 million.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

With the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians or the formation of an Iranian Connection, as a result of money given to the Clinton Foundation,  as was previously reported in 2015, or the later revelation involving “dual-staffer” Cheryl Mills, “FoundationGate” caught the attention of the American Public as a scandal involving money and unscrupulous political ladder-climbing through the peddling of “favors”, the actions of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State crossed the line into the abhorrent abyss of a Conflict of Interest involving possible Treason.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and most recently with E-mailgate and the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton has proven to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cared about herself and her planned ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

And what about her philandering husband, Former President of the United States of America, Bill “Bubba” Clinton?

Do you believe him when he claimed in his tweet yesterday that none of the money used for daughter Chelsea’s Weeding came from the Clinton Foundation?

Just remember…

After nearly 14 hours of debate, the House of Representatives approves two articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton, charging him with lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice. Clinton, the second president in American history to be impeached, vowed to finish his term.

So, Dinesh D’Souza’s detailing of the Clinton Foundation Haitian Relief Scam and the Clinton’s role in it should surprise no one.

The Democrats’ had better wise up and move on past President Trump’s comments about Haiti’s wretched condition.

They are, at least in part, responsible for it.

Trump Asks Why We’re Letting in So Many People From S—hole Countries. Dems Cry “RAAACIIIST!”…Again.

January 12, 2018

trump immigration meeting

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump lamented “s—hole countries” during immigration negotiations on Thursday with lawmakers in the Oval Office, Fox News has confirmed.

“Why are we having all these people from s—hole countries come here?” the president said, in comments first reported by The Washington Post.

The president was referring to people from Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras and African countries in the temporary protected status program, a source in the meeting told Fox News.

About a dozen people, both Republicans and Democrats, were in the room at the time, including South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin.

Trump made the comments as Durbin was reading a list of temporary protected status countries.

The president also suggested the United States should admit more people from countries like Norway instead, the Post said. Trump had met with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg and held a news conference with her Wednesday.

In a statement, the White House did not deny Trump made the comments.

“Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people,” said Raj Shah, the principal deputy White House press secretary.

Democrats reacted by accusing the president of racism.

“As an American, I am ashamed of the president,” said Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutiérrez. “His comments are disappointing, unbelievable, but not surprising. We always knew that president Trump doesn’t like people from certain countries or people or certain colors.”

Some Republicans also voiced their disapproval. Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, whose district includes Miami, responded: “Language like that shouldn’t be heard in locker rooms and it shouldn’t be heard in the White House.”

Rep. Mia Love of Utah, whose parents were Haitian immigrants, called on Trump to apologize, saying his comments were “unkind, divisive, elitist, and fly in the face of our nation’s values.”

The Trump administration announced Monday that as many as 200,000 Salvadoran immigrants living in the United States will no longer be allowed to stay because they have decided to end their protected status. 

The administration’s decision to end special status for Salvadoran immigrants has emerged as a possible bargaining chip for the president as he works to strike a deal with Congress on immigration.

A bipartisan group of six senators said Thursday afternoon they reached “an agreement in principle” with each other on immigration, including a plan to shield illegal immigrations brought to the United States as children from deportation, though it’s unclear if Trump or others in Congress will go along with it.

“The President will only accept an immigration deal that adequately addresses the visa lottery system and chain migration – two programs that hurt our economy and allow terrorists into our country,” Shah said.

Shah added: “Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation. He will always reject temporary, weak and dangerous stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway.”

The comments followed a recent report in the New York Times that Trump said the people of Haiti “all have AIDS” and the people from Nigeria would never “go back to their huts” in Africa after receiving visas to enter the United States. But White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said at the time that the report was false.

Sanders said senior staffers who were “actually in the meeting deny these outrageous claims and it’s both sad and telling the New York Times would print the lies of their anonymous ‘sources’ anyway.”

What is it that makes a geographic area, whether it be an American City or a Foreign Country a “s—hole”?

Is it the color of the skin of the area’s population?

Or rather, it is the decades of poor political leadership, resulting from the avarice and lack of stewardship from those who have either been chosen or who have chosen themselves to be the leader of that area?

For example, the city of Detroit has been labeled a s—hole in the past because of decades of poor Democratic Leadership, which resulted in both businesses and taxpayers leaving the city.

Without a strong economic base, the revenue required to bring stability to an area, including providing for those in the population who can’t or won’t provide for themselves ceases to exist, resulting in an impoverished area unable to pick itself up by its bootstraps in order to be a strong and healthy city…or nation.

When it comes to the countries whom the president referred to as s—holes, it is reasonable that their citizens would want to leave them to make a better life for themselves and their families.

The problem is, as found during the previous Administration, these immigrants are coming to out country and taking advantage of our social programs, without, in many cases, contributing anything to the Sovereign Nation which welcomed them with open arms.

By ending the programs like protected status countries, Visa Lottery, and chain migration, the Trump Administration will be able to make it more difficult for those who have no wish to contribute to our nation, but rather to take advantage of or commit terrorist acts within it, to enter our borders.

Ever since Donald J. Trump announced that he was running for President of the United States of America, Liberals/Progressives/Democrats have attempted to paint him as a racist, oblivious to the fact that not only did he employ Americans of every ethnic background in his corporations, he had never been labeled a racist in his long and distinguished life….until he entered politics.

Unfortunately, this will not be the last time that Democrats attempt to portray the president as being racist.

However, have you noticed that they have not uttered a mumblin’ word about the fact that Black Unemployment in America is down to a record low under President Trump’s leadership?

About this Racism Thing…as Michael Jackson used to sing…perhaps Democrats should start with “The Man in the Mirror”.
