Iran Fires Rocket Next to US Embassy in Green Zone…Trump: “I Will Not Let Iran Have Nuclear Weapons”

May 20, 2019

 

trump-vs-iran-president-war

Per FoxNews.com,

President Trump fired a social media broadside at the Iranian regime Sunday afternoon, vowing that war between Washington and Tehran would result in “the official end of Iran” before warning, “[n]ever threaten the United States again!”

Trump tweeted hours after a rocket landed less than a mile from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone, the first such attack since September. An Iraqi military spokesman told reporters the rocket appeared to have been fired from east Baghdad, which is home to several Iran-backed Shiite militias.

Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have risen in recent weeks after the Trump administration ordered warships and bombers to the Middle East earlier this month to counter threatened attacks against U.S. interests by Iran or Iranian-backed forces.

The U.S. also ordered nonessential staff out of its diplomatic posts in Iraq days after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Baghdad told Iraqi intelligence that the United States had been picking up intelligence that Iran is threatening American interests in the Middle East. Two Iraqi officials told the Associated Press that Pompeo had offered no details of the alleged threat.

President Trump vowed, in a wide-ranging interview with Fox News, not to let Iran get nuclear weapons but reiterated his reluctance to go to war.

“I will not let Iran have nuclear weapons,” he told Fox News host Steve Hilton in an interview on Sunday. His comments reaffirmed the administration’s resolve in suppressing Iranian nuclear proliferation even as it faced provocations from the regime and threats to U.S. assets in the Middle East.

Trump, during the interview, continued opposing military intervention — something that separated him from others in the 2016 campaign — but indicated Iranian nuclear development would constitute an urgent exception.

“I don’t want to fight. But you do have situations like Iran, you can’t let them have nuclear weapons — you just can’t let that happen,” he said.

While speaking with Hilton, he recounted the costs of war which he said he wanted to avoid.

“With all of everything that’s going on, and I’m not one that believes — you know, I’m not somebody that wants to go into war, because war hurts economies, war kills people most importantly — by far most importantly,” he said.

Trump has urged Iranians to come to the table even as they appeared to continue retaliating over higher sanctions — a devastating form of pressure that started with Trump’s decision to exit the Obama-era nuclear deal.

“I ended the Iran Nuclear Deal, and actually, I must tell you — I had no idea it was going to be as strong as it was.  It totally — the country is devastated from the standpoint of the economy,” he told Hilton.

While the president stood by that decision, he faced renewed criticism from Democrats over that 2018 exit. Many of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have pledged to re-enter the deal.

The Mad Mullahs of Iran do not seem to understand that they are not dealing with Petulant President Pantywaist anymore.

Former President Barack Hussein Obama innately trusted Muslims…even radical ones.

Obama, Kerry, and the rest of his Liberal Dhimmi Cabal showed where their loyalties unequivocally lied, with their braggadocio over this Chamberlain-esque “deal” that, from the start, was destined to not only blow up in their faces, but also “where alabaster cities gleam, undimmed by human tears” and in the heart of the Holy Land, itself.

Obama’s concern was never with our allies nor the safety of the citizens and the military of the United States of America.

Obama, as he always had been, was concerned with himself and leaving a marvelous legacy as president.

Giving Iran the means to “kill the infidels” definitely cemented Obama’s Legacy as an incompetent buffoon.

Iran has always been, since the ouster of the Shah, a rogue nation. They are a threat to every nation who stands in the way of their crazed Political Ideology, disguised as a “religion”.

As President Trump said in his Speech to the Arab World, which he delivered in Saudi Arabia, back in 2017…

The Iranian regime’s longest suffering victims are its own people. Iran has a rich history and culture, but the people of Iran have endured hardship and despair under their leader’s reckless pursuit of conflict and terror. Until the Iranian regime is willing to be a partner for peace, all nations of conscience must work together to isolate it, deny it, funding for terrorism, cannot do it, and pray for the day when the Iranian people have the just and righteous government they so richly deserve.

Iran feared a Trump Presidency.

It was far more lucrative for them, when the United States “negotiated from a position of weakness”, when we had a vacillating dhimmi in the White House.

Now, as they found out when he canceled the “agreement” that they made with Obama, Iran has to negotiate with an American President who has mastered “The Art of the Deal”.

…one who will place America and her best interests, first.

The problem Trump faces with Iran is the fact that, as he told the UN, they are a state sponsor of Radical Islamic Terrorism. They are bullies who will lie to your face, as they did to our naïve Former President, when he made his “Gentlemen’s Agreement” with them concerning the development of nuclear weapons.

Through continued threats and “pushing of the envelope”, such as the rocket they just fired into the Green Zone, the leaders of Iran are testing President Trump’s and our nation’s resolve. Plain and simple.

Just like President Reagan sent a guided missile straight into Libyan Madman Moamar Kadhafi’s bedroom, perhaps it is time for President Trump to “fire a shot across the bow” and get the attention of the Radical Islamic Mullahs who govern the Rogue Country of Iran.

After all, bullies with think twice if you stand up to them and give them something to think about.

Ask the bully in 7th grade whom I hit square between the eyes with my 2s (Tom) drumsticks.

He never bothered me again.

And, after President Reagan gave Libya’s Madman Moammar Qadhafi something to think about, we did not hear from him again for 25 years.

President Trump has given Iran fair warning.

Things could get very interesting, very soon.

Barr Tells Fox News’ Hemmer That He’s Trying to Find Out if “Government Officials Put Their Thumb on the Scale” in Russia Probe

May 17, 2019

1140486606-William-Barr-Testimony

“Okay, if the investigation being done by the IG, Mr. Horowitz, and John Durham… If they discover that all of these people — Comey, Brennan, Clapper, all these people — were executing orders, had been given a mission, where did it come from? “It had to come from somebody higher than they are. Did it come from Hillary? Did it come from Hillary with Obama knowing or did it come from Obama with everybody executing?” We were asking ourselves, “If the investigation does indicate that Obama had knowledge, will they say so?” I said, “No. I think whatever Barr and company do here, they’ll stop short of naming Obama just for the sake of the republic and the country.” And the person I was talking to said, “Well, they didn’t have that same consideration for Trump. They were totally willing to take him out!” “Yeah, but I’m just…” It’s a good point. It’s a good point.” – Rush Limbaugh 5/16/19

As I posted yesterday, 20 House Dems are going to read out loud The entire 440 page Mueller Report today in a 12 hour waste of time.

Why are they doing this?

Perhaps it is to distract from an interview to be aired this morning on Fax News with Attorney General William Barr concerning his investigation into the origin of the Russia Probe.

FoxNews.com reports that

In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Attorney General William Barr explained that he is trying to get to the bottom of whether or not “government officials abused their power and put their thumb on the scale” during the early stages of the Russia probe.

“I’ve been trying to get answers to the questions and I’ve found that a lot of the answers have been inadequate and some of the explanations I’ve gotten don’t hang together, in a sense I have more questions today than when I first started,” Barr told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer in an interview set to air Friday on “America’s Newsroom.”

“What doesn’t hang together?” Hemmer asked.

“Some of the explanations of what occurred,” Barr said.

“Why does that matter?” asked Hemmer.

“People have to find out what the government was doing during that period. If we’re worried about foreign influence, for the very same reason we should be worried about whether government officials abuse their power and put their thumb on the scale,” Barr responded.

Barr added, “I’m not saying that happened but it’s something we have to look at.”

Hemmer conducted the interview with Barr in El Salvador, where he will address the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, MS-13, drug trafficking and human trafficking with officials.

On Monday, multiple outlets reported that Barr had appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham to examine the origins of the Russia investigation

A person familiar with the process told Fox News Tuesday that Durham has been working on his review “for weeks,” to probe “all intelligence collection activities” related to the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

The Russia investigation and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report continue to be debated by Republicans and Democrats since its release last month.

Democrats have accused Barr of acting as the president’s “personal attorney” while Republicans accuse Democrats of vilifying the attorney general in order to harm President Trump.

Make no mistake about it, the Democrats know exactly what the Attorney General is going to discover in his investigation.

That is why they are not slowing down with their political shenanigans including all of their House Committee Tribunals and their insipid “Public Reading” today.

When word first got out that Former President Obama was setting up shop in Washington, DC close to the White House and that there was a cadre of Professional Government Bureaucrats still loyal to him and the Democratic Party working together as a “Shadow Government”, I made the remark that the situation was like that in a Tom Clancy Spy Novel.

Not only was I right, but I underestimated just how blatantly deep within the swamp that these shadows roamed.

This whole Democrat-supported “Lawfare” against Trump, resembles a spider’s web in its malevolent intricacy with its “alarm thread” leading directly back to the Obama and Hillary.

This has been a well-planned “silent coup” designed to keep the Democratic Party in control of the Presidency and to further their goal of turning the United States of America into a Democratic Socialist Country, where the Politboro (Central Government) would prosper and us average Americans would spend our lives working for the glory of the State.

The election of a “Citizen Statesman” in the form of Donald J. Trump to the office of the Presidency ruined their plans.

That is why they are still attempting to overturn the results of a fair election.

Merriam-Webster.com defines “sedition” as

: incitement of resistance to or insurrection against lawful authority

That being said, the intentional interference in the passage of Presidential Authority from one political party to another as the result of a fairly held election as prescribed by our Constitution can not be considered to be anything less. According to Federal Law, the punishment for Seditious Conspiracy is detailed as follows..

If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.

The Trump Administration and its specified duties regarding the operation of the Government of the United States of America and the oversight of the safety and welfare of its citizens are under attack by both members of a Former Presidential Administration and by members of our own Department of Justice.

I believe that it is time that the laws against interference with our fairly elected government be enforced against those who would sabotage their own country for the sake of their own egos, to assuage their hurt and anger from a lost Presidential Election, and to preserve a legacy of failure which average Americans did not wish to continue.

​I also believe that the Democrats will become even more dangerous and irrational, the deeper that Barr’s investigation goes.

The future actions will betray them.

20 House Dems to Read Mueller Report Out Loud…Why Don’t They Do Their Job, Instead?

May 16, 2019

House Democrats Hold News Conference Expressing Support Of Special Counsel Robert Mueller

“I belong to no organized party. I am a Democrat. – Will Rogers”

FoxNews.com reports that

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh accused the Democratic Party of having no direction and being in a “world of hurt” Wednesday while reacting to the news that more than 20 House Democrats planned to stage a public reading of the Mueller report Thursday.

“The time they’re gonna waste doing this? You know what the Democrats are doing? I’m convinced the Democrats don’t have the slightest idea how to win the presidency — they don’t — and they don’t know what they’re doing. They are seeking guidance,” Limbaugh said on his radio show.

“So they’re doing all this crazy stuff. The Green New Deal. All this other cockamamie stuff. They’re throwing it up against the wall to see what sticks.”

Democratic lawmakers plan to read Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation in its entirety, except for the redacted parts. The event is expected to take 12 hours.

Limbaugh cited President Trump’s approval rating as a reason Democrats continue to be disorganized.

Trump’s average job approval rating currently sits at 44.4 percent according to RealClearPolitics.

“Right now, the Democrat Party doesn’t know where they’re going and who they want to go there with. They are in a world of hurt, ” Limbaugh said.

Limbaugh added that the Democrats’ hope that the president’s removal was imminent haven’t panned out and now the tables have been turned on the party.

“Everything they thought was guaranteed — Trump being forced out of office or impeached, Trump’s popularity in the twenties, people hating Trump and loving them? None of it has worked out, and now the people responsible for trying to make that all happen are themselves being investigated,” Limbaugh said, adding: “I think they are descending further into the depths of confusion and rancor and near insanity in some cases.”

In a related story…

In her “Ingraham Angle” commentary, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham said that Democrats are committing “self-sabotage” ahead of the 2020 elections by being “obsessed with” President Trump instead of “pushing policies that actually appeal to working-class Americans.”

“Far too many of our Democrat friends have kind of driven off the deep end,” she said. “They’re obsessed with Trump, they’re muttering about [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller, Don Jr., Russia and [Attorney General] Bill Barr.”

With the 2020 Presidential Election getting closer and closer, does anybody out there know what the Democratic Party stands for except

“We hate Trump and everyone who voted for him is an idiot. Ohhh…and it’s okay to abort babies after birth.”

I mean, seriously.

What sort of tone deaf imbeciles would read out loud an over 400-page report for 12 hours, which ends in favor of a President whom they despise and want out of office.

Do they actually believe that they are serving their constituencies by doing this?

Do they actually believe that playing Captain Ahab chasing Moby Dick will woo potential 2020 voters?

As the White House Counsel has pointed out to the Dems on Capitol Hill, there are no do-overs.

So, why are they wasting their time AND OUR MONEY?

To quote their last Presidential Candidate,

“What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Even now the Democrats have 20 some-odd (and, I do mean ODD) candidates preparing to run in their Primary Elections.

And, every single one of them have their own pet causes which they are advocating.

These candidates range from a Gay Mayor to a Senile Socialist…and Sleepy Joe.

Unless the Democrats in Congress stop fighting a battle that they are not going to win and get down to actually doing the job that they were sent to Washington to do, they are going to commit political mass seppuku.

Come to think of it, you Democratic guys and gals just keep going like you’re going, and 2020 will be a repeat of 1984.

I’ll bring the popcorn.

Why is Iran Challenging Us? Because Trump Stood Up to Them…and Obama Didn’t

May 12, 2019

United_States_Iran_08115

FoxNews.com reports that

Tensions escalated in the Middle East on Friday as Iran warned it could easily destroy a naval fleet sent by the United States in order to ward off a potential threat to American commercial interests.

“Their billion[-dollar] fleet can be destroyed with one missile,” Ayatollah Tabatabai-Nejad said, according to Reuters.

“If they attempt any move, they will … [face] dozens of missiles because at that time [government] officials won’t be in charge to act cautiously, but instead things will be in the hands of our beloved leader,” Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, he warned.

The heated rhetoric has capped a multiyear standoff over the rogue nation’s nuclear program. President Trump’s administration angered the regime when he withdrew from an Obama-era nuclear deal granting Iran sanctions relief in exchange for limited monitoring accommodations.

The regime relaxed constraints on its nuclear program in reaction to sanctions the administration applied in May as part of its plan to put a chokehold on the nation’s crude oil exports. U.S. intelligence indicated that Iran considered military action and could close a waterway through which a hefty amount of the world’s oil passes.

“Iran or its proxies could respond by targeting commercial vessels, including oil tankers, or U.S. military vessels in the Red Sea, Bab-el-Mandeb Strait, or the Persian Gulf,” the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD) said on Friday.

While the president has warned of a potential U.S. military response, he also urged Iranian leaders on Thursday to talk with him about their nuclear program. “What they should be doing is calling me up, sitting down; we can make a deal, a fair deal. … We’re not looking to hurt Iran,” Trump reportedly told the press.

In a statement on Thursday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also pushed talks between leaders but warned that the U.S. was ready to take “swift and decisive” action.

“The regime in Tehran should understand that any attacks by them or their proxies of any identity against U.S. interests or citizens will be answered with a swift and decisive U.S. response,” he said.

Military action appeared more likely after Iran’s Revolutionary Guard refused to hold talks with the U.S.

“No talks will be held with the Americans, and the Americans will not dare take military action against us,” Yadollah Javani, the group’s deputy head for political affairs, said.

Gentle readers, it has been over a year since the 45th President of the United States of America announced that he was ending a very stupid, very dangerous Foreign Policy decision made by the 44th President.

And, rightfully so.

All Barack Hussein Obama’s “Gentlemen’s Agreement” with the Mad Mullahs of Iran accomplished was to allow them to continue to work on their nuclear program.

Are you old enough to remember the Iranian Hostage Crisis? If not, here is a summary, courtesy of u-s-history.com:

On November 4, 1979, an angry mob of some 300 to 500 “students” who called themselves “Imam’s Disciples,” laid siege to the American Embassy in Teheran, Iran, to capture and hold hostage 66 U.S. citizens and diplomats. Although women and African-Americans were released a short time later, 51 hostages remained imprisoned for 444 days with another individual released because of illness midway through the ordeal.

…Upon the death of the shah in July [1980] (which neutralized one demand) and the Iraqi invasion of Iran in September (necessitating weapons acquisition), Iran became more amenable to reopening negotiations for the hostages’ release.

In the late stages of the presidential race with Ronald Reagan, Carter, given those new parameters, might have been able to bargain with the Iranians, which might have clinched the election for him. The 11th-hour heroics were dubbed an “October Surprise”* by the Reagan camp — something they did not want to see happen.

Allegations surfaced that William Casey, director of the Reagan campaign, and some CIA operatives, secretly met with Iranian officials in Europe to arrange for the hostages’ release, but not until after the election. If true, some observers aver, dealing with a hostile foreign government to achieve a domestic administration’s defeat would have been grounds for charges of treason.

Reagan won the election, partly because of the failure of the Carter administration to bring the hostages home. Within minutes of Reagan’s inauguration, the hostages were released.

In stark, terrifying contrast, the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, purposely and surreptitiously handed a Rogue State of Radical Muslim Barbarians the means of the destruction of both the United States of America and  our staunch ally, Israel, with his toothless “Nuclear Agreement”

Why did the President of these United States, Barack Hussein Obama, trust Iran, an enemy of freedom, to stand by its “Agreement” to refrain from nuking the United States of America and Israel?

He gave Iran everything they wanted: their money, nuclear capability, and acquiescence by the Government of the United States of America, literally, encouraging the world’s population of Islamic Terrorists to kidnap our own Naval Personnel, with the promise of a huge payday, while he remained president.

Addtionally, Fox News reported in December of 2017 that

The Obama administration gave a free pass to Hezbollah’s drug-trafficking and money-laundering operations — some of which were unfolding inside the U.S. — to help ensure the Iran nuclear deal would stay on track, according to a bombshell exposé in Politico Sunday.

An elaborate campaign led by the Drug Enforcement Administration, known as Project Cassandra, reportedly targeted the Lebanese militant group’s criminal activities. But by tossing a string of roadblocks holding back the project, Obama administration officials helped allow the 35-year-old anti-Israel criminal enterprise to evolve into a major global security threat bankrolling terrorist and military operations, the report added.

And, as was reported in May of 2018, Former Secretary of State John Kerry had been engaging in “Shadow Diplomacy”, otherwise known as conspiratorial sedition, by meeting with the Iranians in the desperate hope to somehow keep the lousy deal with the Iranians and his former Boss’ legacy intact.

As you watch all of the Liberals News Channels dissect and “analyze” what is happening in the Persian Gulf, you will know doubt see a lot of concerned hand-wringing from anchors, political pundits, and Democratic Congressman as to what a grave error that President Trump made by ending Obama’s “deal” with Iran.

Don’t believe them.

The intentional error was made by Obama. He knew that the Iranians would not keep their word.

He didn’t care.

His desire to leave a legacy as President trumped his concern for America’s safety.

And now, President Trump is having to clean up Obama’s mess.

The Mad Mullahs of Iran seem to believe that President Trump and the American People don’t have the backbone to stand up to them. That is why they are playing this game of chicken. They believe the 45th President will blink and kowtow to them, as his predecessor did.

My advice to the Mullahs?

Just like the Pirate Captain did in the popular joke that has been going around for awhile, have your servant bring you your pair of brown pants.

You are going to need them.

Richard Neal (D), House Ways and Means Committee Chairman, Subpoenas Treasury Sec. Mnuchin for Trump’s Tax Returns

May 11, 2019

 

DCSA134-42_2019_125958Will the House Democrats ever conduct any business on behalf of the American People during the next two years?

Did Captain Ahab ever give up his hunt for Moby Dick?

FoxNews.com reports that

The Democratic chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee on Friday issued subpoenas to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig for six years of President Trump’s personal and business tax returns.

“While I do not take this step lightly, I believe this action gives us the best opportunity to succeed and obtain the requested material,” Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Richard Neal said in a statement. “I sincerely hope that the Treasury Department will furnish the requested material in the next week so the committee can quickly begin its work.”

The White House did not immediately comment.

Last month, Neal requested the returns from the Treasury Department, but Mnuchin denied the request saying that it lacked a “legitimate legislative purpose.”

“As you have recognized, the Committee’s request is unprecedented, and it presents serious constitutional questions, the resolution of which may have lasting consequences for all taxpayers,” Mnuchin wrote in a letter this week.

The topic has been a contentious one for the president since his time on the campaign trail in 2015, and throughout his administration, as he has refused to release his financial information. Trump repeatedly has claimed that his tax returns are complicated, and he has maintained that he will not release them while they are under audit by the IRS.

But this week, “The New York Times” obtained Trump’s federal income tax returns between 1985 and 1994. The documents revealed that Trump claimed to have lost $1.17 billion from his real estate businesses during that decade. The Times added that it had compared Trump’s tax information with other high-income earners and found that Trump “appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer”. The newspaper also reported that the losses were so substantial, that in the eight of the ten years in question, Trump was able to avoid paying income tax.

House Democrats have been targeting Trump’s tax returns and financial documents since they took the majority in Congress in January. As part of their lead-off ethics package, which Trump’s lawyers cited in their filing Wednesday, Democrats’ legislation required presidents to disclose at least 10 years of their tax returns to the public, in what was an apparent swipe at Trump.

Actually, the Democrats have been after the President’s Tax Returns for quite a while now.

Do you remember the “Tax Marches” of 2017?

Foxnews.com reported on April 14, 2017 that

Democratic lawmakers and liberal activists plan to ring in Tax Day with nationwide protests this weekend meant to pressure President Trump to release his tax returns — with organizers hoping for the biggest anti-Trump showing since January’s Women’s March. 

On Saturday, thousands are expected to attend ‘Tax Marches’ in approximately 150 cities, including several affiliated events overseas.

“Whether people support him or not, [releasing his tax returns] is something that people think he should do. I think there is a chance something like this could move him,” said Lisa Gilbert, vice president of legislative affairs at Public Citizen, one of the groups organizing the marches. 

The president’s supporters, however, see the marches — and the persistent tax return focus — as a waste of time. 

In Colorado Springs, Trump backers plan to hold a counter-protest on Saturday. For them, what is in Trump’s tax returns pales in comparison to what could be in his tax plan. 

“Their whole message is they want to see the president’s tax returns. I care far more about his policy than his tax returns,” Trevor Dierdorff, El Paso County Republican Party chairman, told the Colorado Springs Gazette. 

Rep. Jim Renacci, R-Ohio, said during a recent House Ways and Means Committee hearing that the pressure on Trump to release his returns is a “political mission,” arguing the kind of bombshells Democrats are seeking wouldn’t even be in such documents. 

The protests, if nothing else, could make for a rowdy scene in cities across the country, reminiscent of the Women’s March on inauguration weekend. 

At the time of those marches, the Republicans still controlled the House of Representatives and therefore, they also controlled all of the committees.

Now, the Democrats control the House and all of the committees, using that power as a weapon to overturn the results of the 2016 Presidential Election, regardless of whether there is any sort of Congressional precedence or Constitutional backing for their actions.

In this instance, like the rest of their Machiavellian machinations, there is no precedence, Constitutional backing, or sanity involved, for that matter.

These repeated attempts to circumvent the will of the American People though these Orchestrated protests is an exercise in intimidation that has not been seen since the days of the Russian Revolution and Germany’s National Sociality Party.

The Democrats will not stop until President Trump and the American Values which he represents have been eliminated for the National Scene and we are returned to the rule of a figurehead of their choice and the anti-America Culture which the Democrats attempted to install during the reign of Barack Hussein Obama.

Instead of moving on from the report of the Special Counsel which found no Russian Collusion by the President and his staff and which found no actionable obstruction, the Democrats have doubled down in an exhibition of tone deafness not seen since a sound man put a solo microphone on the late Linda McCartney, when she played keyboards for her husband Paul and his group “Wings”. (God rest her soul.)

The Democrats are so desperate to find something…ANYTHING…on the president, that they are embarrassing themselves on both the national and international stage.

I was reading yesterday that President Trump’s approval numbers have risen 11% since the Mueller Reports was released and that Congress’ has dropped 11%.

I believe it. In fact, that pollster was probably being kind.

This latest move by the Democrats in demanding that a sitting President let the opposition party perform a colonoscopy on him via his tax returns is not only outlandish, it is also the height of arrogance.

It is that same arrogance which cost the Democratic Party the Presidency in 2016.

Some people never learn.

Comey Defends Obama’s Inaction Against Russia Before the 2016 Election

May 10, 2019

190509201055-james-comey-town-hall-2-super-169

FoxNews.com reports that

Former FBI Director James Comey defended President Barack Obama’s handling of Russian interference during the 2016 election, placing more blame on Republican lawmakers for not wanting to disclose Russia’s involvement to the public sooner.

During a televised town hall, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper asked Comey about President Trump’s repeated criticism of his predecessor for not taking more action against Russia on his watch.

“What should have been done more? Could more have been done? You were at the FBI at that point,” Cooper said.

“That’s a hard question. President Obama faced a very difficult choice. The No. 1 goal for the Russians is to damage our democracy and undermine faith in our electoral process,” Comey responded. “If he makes an announcement that the Russians are coming for the election, has he just accomplished their goal for them and has he given Donald Trump an excuse to say, ‘Obama fixed the election’? So I get why he struggled with it.”

Comey credited Obama for doing a “sensible thing” by trying to get top lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to go public about Russia’s meddling.

“He tried getting the bipartisan leaders of Congress to jointly tell the American people this is going on,” Comey continued. “And, in my view, to their everlasting shame, the Republicans refused.”

The former FBI director also mentioned that he offered to write an op-ed during the election to inform the country about Russia, but was shut down by the Obama administration.

“I get why President Obama hesitated and I agreed with his concern about not accomplishing Russia’s goal for them,” Comey told Cooper.

In a wide-ranging town hall about the Russia investigation, Comey was asked about the reported undercover investigator who was sent to meet former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos. He dismissed the notion that it was “spying” and called it “reasonable” and a “totally normal step” based on the investigation.

What a bunch of bull.

Obama was too busy spying on Trump to worry about the Russians.

The Russians were the least of his worries.

He wanted his “legacy” to continue. That’s why he was attempting to make sure that Hillary Clinton would be the next president.

Here is all you need to know about Former FBI Director James Comey.

Former President Barack Hussein Obama hired James Comey.

Comey is a Professional Bureaucrat. He is a Political Weasel.

Comey followed Robert Mueller as Director of the FBI.

He remained loyal to King Barack The First after President Trump decided to keep him on as FBI Director.

That is why he took notes in meetings with Trump and did not document his meetings with anyone in the Previous Administration, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama.

Back on September 20, 2016. Breitbart.com reported the following about Comey…

A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.

These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

Lockheed Martin

When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers.

But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel.

How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.

Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.

According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.

In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.

HSBC Holdings

In 2013, Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings.

“Mr. Comey’s appointment will be for an initial three-year term which, subject to re-election by shareholders, will expire at the conclusion of the 2016 Annual General Meeting,” according to HSBC company records.

HSBC Holdings and its various philanthropic branches routinely partner with the Clinton Foundation. For instance, HSBC Holdings has partnered with Deutsche Bank through the Clinton Foundation to “retrofit 1,500 to 2,500 housing units, primarily in the low- to moderate-income sector” in “New York City.”

“Retrofitting” refers to a Green initiative to conserve energy in commercial housing units. Clinton Foundation records show that the Foundation projected “$1 billion in financing” for this Green initiative to conserve people’s energy in low-income housing units.

The raw, unmitigated corruption involving Hillary Clinton and her Foundation is breath-taking in its size and scope and should have been targeted a long time ago by Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

But, Comey’s corruption did not end there.

Please allow me to review…

Former President Barack Hussein Obama and members of his Administration, including Former FBI Director James Comey, weaponized the FBI and DOJ for the purposes of not only spying on , but also sabotaging the Candidacy and Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

These Deep State Operatives, loyal to the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party, protected both President Barack Hussein Obama and Former Candidate Hillary Clinton, while using both the Bureaucratic and Electronic Tools at their disposal to somehow attempt to keep Trump from becoming President.

Having failed at that, they invented the fictitious Russian Collusion Narrative as both a distraction and an impediment, in order to prevent President Trump from fulfilling his Campaign Promise to “Make America Great Again”.

This “Secret Society” within the FBI, ensconced in their Swamp of Bureaucracy, considered themselves, as most of the Liberal Elite do, to be smarter than everybody else, “untouchable”, and, evidently, above the laws of the nation which they had sworn to uphold and its citizens whom they had sworn to serve.

So, is it very apparent that Comey has been a duplicitous, corrupt Political Weasel for a very long time.

…including the time he spent working for President Donald J. Trump.

So, for him to continue to portray himself as a guiltless public servant, who was oblivious to all of the corruption surrounding himself and all of his cronies in the Deep State Bowels of Washington, D.C. is the height of hypocrisy….a condition that seems to run rampant among Washington Bureaucrats, especially those who were members of the Obama Administration.

If Former FBI Director Comey is suggesting that Trump and the Republican Hierarchy are unethical and he wants a more ethical leadership in Washington, I would suggest that he begin with the man in the mirror…if President Trump had not fired him two years ago yesterday and taken care of that particular problem.

Cory Booker Gives Obama Credit for Trump’s Booming Economy…Larry Kudlow Corrects Him

May 6, 2019

D99C3857-7A5B-4BAF-86F4-67119B71C1CB

FoxNews.com reports that

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow denounced Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., Sunday after the 2020 White House candidate said President Trump was “taking credit for a recovery that started under [former President Barack] Obama.”

“What Mr. Booker and some others are saying is simply not true factually,” Kudlow told Fox News’ “America’s News HQ”.

Kudlow spoke two days after the publication of the April jobs report, which showed that the American economy added 263,000 jobs last month while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6 percent, the lowest since 1969. Despite the rosy numbers, Booker insisted that the boom’s effects were not being felt across all economic levels.

“You have people on my block – I’m the only presidential candidate that lives in a low-income inner-city neighborhood. Talk to folks, and they’ll tell you: ‘I have to work two jobs just to try to keep myself in housing. And, by the way, that housing isn’t reflected in any of my family,'” Booker said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Americans are struggling. Their wages are too low … for the last four decades, I don’t think they’ve budged that much … We’ve got to make sure that this is a shared recovery, because, right now, it definitely is not.”

Kudlow emphatically begged to differ.

“I’m just gonna use the damn facts,” he told Fox News’ Leland Vittert. “On the wage front, [average hourly earnings are] rising 3.2 percent overall. The bottom [poorest] quarter [of workers], 4.4 percent increase, the top quarter, 3.5 percent [increase].”

“First of all, both are good and a rising tide is lifting all boats,” Kudlow added. “But the point I’m making is, it’s the blue collar people that have the fastest job expansion and it’s the blue collar people that have the best wage growth.”

Kudlow reacted to the April jobs report in a video posted on the White House’s Instagram page Friday afternoon.

“Wow! Low unemployment, high jobs, high wages, big consumer confidence, major productivity and no inflation,” said an enthusiastic Kudlow while gesturing toward the camera. “It’s totally awesome. We’re killing it on the economy.”

“I don’t know how I had the energy to do that,” Kudlow said Sunday. “I just walked out and, I don’t know, man, let her rip. These are blowout numbers. The economy is going great guns and POTUS’ [Trump’s] policies, to be perfectly honest, his policies to rebuild this economy have entered us into a tremendous prosperity cycle. And I don’t see any end to it right now.”

 

Trump has delivered what he promised: a stronger economy and more jobs.

Americans are more concerned with providing for themselves and their families than they are with the silly “Social Justice Warrior” Political Games which the Democratic Socialist Party, as exemplified by Cory Booker, continues to play.

Quite frankly, the reason that Obama Presidency did not move our economy forward, like President Trump is in the process of doing, is because Obama was more concerned about growing the Central Government, than he was about growing American Production by freeing the job creators from punitive tax rates, in order to encourage the growth that will revitalize our economy.

That is why I once spent 6 hours on a Saturday, on the phone with Punjab from Calcutta about my Comcast Cable Box, which was on the fritz.

But, I digress…

Make no mistake, granting amnesty to millions of unskilled, underage illegal aliens would have done and still would do nothing for the health of our economy.

This action would simply provide future voters for the Democrat Party, which is now, as I wrote earlier, firmly in the control of the Far Left.

A popular Liberal Defense that was going around during Obama’s Presidency was the claim that President Ronald Reagan actually had a bigger Federal Government than Obama.

The funny part is: It’s true.

It was larger because President Reagan, through his sound Economic Policy, actually increased tax revenues.

American Production rose, therefore, TAX REVENUES INCREASED.

Yes, “Trickle-Down Economics”, “trickled up”, allowing for a well-funded, strong American Military and Administration.

You see, boys and girls, that’s the secret of American Exceptionalism, a concept that Obama always gave lip service to, but, clearly, never believed in.

For America to prosper, we must remain free. For America to remain free, we must be prosperous.

American Capitalism is the engine which drives a strong, vibrant economy. American Capitalism is the result of the courageous Entrepreneurial Spirit of American Citizens. The same “Can Do” attitude which led to Western Expansion and triumphs against those before-mentioned enemies, foreign and domestic.

If Americans had elected Hillary Clinton as President on that historic night of November 8, 2016, America’s economy would still be swirling down the ol’ porcelain receptacle as it was when Obama left office.

It would have been, except Americas did not elect another clueless politician, like Obama and Hillary.

Instead, Americans elected a Citizen Statesman with Real World Experience who is not afraid to remind those whomever he is negotiating with that he is always willing to walk away from the table and that he is THE Master of “The Art of the Deal”.

President Trump is succeeding as President because of his ability to focus on the challenges he faces and to come up with innovative, common-sense solutions.

His popularity continues to rise dues to average Americans’ appreciation of a President who puts America first.

And as Trump continues on his mission to Make American Great Again, all the Democrats have to contribute is hate, divisiveness, and their memories of a FAILED PRESIDENCY.

And, that is not an election-winning Party Platform to run on.

Biden Says “Jim Crow Sneaking Back In” Because Trump and Republicans Want to Tighten Voting Laws

May 5, 2019

JEOEPYRP6YI6TBVLLUBBBGXLAE

FoxNews.com reports that

Former Vice President Joe Biden charged Saturday that Jim Crow is “sneaking back in” as he emphasized voting rights at his first presidential campaign stop in South Carolina, where black voters play a key role in the South’s first presidential primary.

In criticizing Republican efforts to adopt more stringent voting rules, including identification requirements and curtailing early voting hours, Biden recalled the racial segregation laws of the past.

“You’ve got Jim Crow sneaking back in,” he said, referring to the era before the civil rights movement. “You know what happens when you have an equal right to vote? They lose.”

Biden centered much of his trip around the need to restore decency to the White House. “Your state motto is, ‘While I breathe, I hope,'” he said at the rally after continuing his full-throated denunciation of President Donald Trump. “It’s not a joke. We’re breathing, but God, we have got to have hope.”

He kept up that theme at a private evening fundraiser, telling several dozen donors that he expects a nasty race from Trump.

“This guy is going to go after me and family,” Biden said, recalling his grandchildren telling him before his announcement that they expect Trump and others to bring up family details including his son Hunter Biden’s divorce.

Biden said there “are so many nicknames I want to give this guy,” and he drew laughter when he joked that he’d “start with clown.” But he added that he doesn’t want to respond in kind.

“The only place he has any confidence is in the mud,” Biden said, because the president “doesn’t understand how to respond to issues.”

Biden said he will answer Trump “directly” in the future without name-calling. He recalled saying in 2016 that in high school he’d have “taken him behind the barn and beat the hell out of” Trump. “Guess what? I probably shouldn’t have done that,” Biden said. “The presidency is an office that requires dignity and reestablishing respect and standing.”

Biden will continue his trip Sunday by worshipping at a black church in Columbia.

Okay, let me get this straight.

The guy who once described Barack Hussein Obama as “clean and articulate” is calling President Donald J. Trump and the rest of Republicans RAAACIIIST for wanting to pass laws requiring an ID to vote and other measures designed to ensure honest, fair elections in the future?

Look at the political shenanigans which transpired during the 2018 Midterm Elections in Arizona, Georgia, and Florida, and you will understand why “Sleepy Joe” and his fellow Democrats have fought against Voter I.D. Cards so ferociously.

A Voter I.D. would spoil the 2020 Presidential Election Plans of the Democratic Party Leadership.

Remember, their Chairman is a Hispanic Political Activist.

In my state, even if you cannot drive, you can still get a state identification.

There is nothing to it and it comes in useful for all sorts of things where you need an I.D., even purchasing a cellphone and service plan.

Trump is absolutely right.

I.D.’s are a part of the overwhelming majority of Americans’ everyday lives.

The only reason to intentionally not carry one would be if you do not want to be identified because you’re breaking the law in some form or fashion…such as being in this Sovereign Nation illegally.

The right to vote in American Elections should remain as it always has been: a right enjoyed by American Citizens Only.

Allowing illegals to vote is rewarding them for not having enough respect for America to enter our country in a legal manner.

It is the wrong thing to do….just like “finding votes” after the election is.

Oh, and another thing: It was not a bunch of Republicans who attempted to beat up Black Conservative Candace Owens, the Founder of the #Blexit Movement, the other day.

It was a bunch of black-hooded punks from Antifa, the Far Left Fascists.

Since its inception, the #Blexit Movement has encouraged a lot of black Americans to #breakaway from the Democratic Party and become Republicans.

With Black Unemployment at a record low and more and more black Americans walking away from the Democratic Party, it has opened a lot of eyes to the fact that the Democratic Party has done absolutely nothing for black America.

I’ll take that back. They have done something.

They have encouraged them since President Johnson’s implementation of “The Great Society” to let “Uncle Sugar” take care of them, assuring them that as long as they continued to vote Democrats into public office that they would be “taken care of”.

It has been those black Americans who have broken out of the cycle of government-assisted poverty who have come to realize that the Democratic Party’s “benevolence” was, in fact, a boat anchor, tied to them to keep them from reaching the shores of self-reliance.

By the way, a bunch of successful young black Americans met with President Trump several months ago and, according to them, they love the guy.

And, they didn’t feel “used” at all.

They felt empowered.

Trump is winning over a voting bloc that the Democrats have always counted on to vote for their candidate in the Presidential Election.

And, gentle readers, that is why Sleepy Joe brought up Tom Crow and is going on a “Goodwill Tour” through black communities, including making a campaign speech today in a black church.

I guess the “separation of church and state” which the Dems always whine about doesn’t apply to them.

One final thought: Do you know how you can tell that Sleepy Joe and the Democrats have already reached the stage of desperation in the 2020 Presidential Campaign?

They are already playing the Race Card.

Rep. Ilhan Omar Plays the Race Card to Defend Her Blaming America for the Failure of Socialism in Venezuela

May 4, 2019

omar-pass-600-li

FoxNews.com reports that

Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., fired back at Vice President Pence on Friday after he took issue with her remarks on the escalating tensions in Venezuela.

“Women of color have heard this before. Instead of ‘We disagree,’ it’s ‘She doesn’t know what she’s talking about,’” Omar tweeted. “They have to make us feel small. This from an Administration that thinks climate change is a Chinese hoax.”

Earlier in the day, Pence accused Omar of not knowing “what she’s talking about” after she appeared to lay some responsibility for the ongoing situation in Venezuela on the Trump administration over its “bullying” tactics and sanctions.

Pence, for his part, assigned blame for the unrest to embattled President Nicolas Maduro.

“Nicolas Maduro is a socialist dictator who has taken what was one of the most prosperous nations in this hemisphere and brought it literally to a level of deprivation and oppression and poverty that we have never seen,” Pence said. “Nine out of 10 people in Venezuela live in poverty. Three million people have fled Venezuela. That’s not a result of U.S. policies. That’s the result of dictatorship and socialism that has been imposed on people of Venezuela by Nicolas Maduro.”

Earlier in the week, Omar made comments on PBS’ “Democracy Now!,” saying that “a lot of the policies that we have put in place has kind of helped lead the devastation in Venezuela and we have sort of set the stage for where we are arriving today.”

“This particular bullying and the use of sanctions to eventually intervene and make regime change really does not help the people of countries like Venezuela, and it certainly does not help and is not in the interest of the United States,” she added.

Pence separately took issue with those remarks on Thursday, accusing her on Twitter of picking “socialism over freedom.” He went on to extend the administration’s support to “the freedom-loving people of Venezuela.”

Vice-President Pence is exactly right.

Everywhere that it has been tried, Marxism has failed and Venezuela is no exception.

Back during my college days in the late 1970s, I had a class with a young man from Venezuela.

He would speak to me regularly about how his nation was thriving economically and becoming a major player on the world stage.

He would brag about how beautiful the cities were and speak of the national pride which he felt for his country.

Look at Venezuela now.

After years of suffering under Marxist Regimes, the citizens of Venezuela are forced to eat garbage just to stay alive.

And, this is what Rep. Ilhan Omar is trying to blame on OUR Sovereign Nation…the very country which she has sworn an oath to?

Fox News’ Jesse Watters has had enough…

“I would issue a challenge to her. Omar, please say one good thing about America,” Watters said on “The Five” on Thursday.

“We hear her so much saying what’s wrong with America. Just say what you’re proud of. I think that would counterbalance some of the negativity that you hear coming out of her mouth.”

Jesse, I wouldn’t hold your breath while you’re waiting for her to comply with your request.

After all, the woman is an anti-American, anti-Semite Muslim from Somalia who married her own brother to keep him from being deported.

In fact, she is so filled with animus toward tbe country which she is supposed to be representing, that she has forgotten the lesson which a “man of color” tqaught us long ago:

It’s not about the color of your skin. It’s about the content of your character.

And Rep. Omar, yours is sorely lacking.

Trump to Fox News About Potential Nadler Subpoenas: “They’ve Testified for Many Hours, All of Them. I Would Say, It’s Done.”

May 3, 2019

kfc8.jpg

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump told Fox News in an exclusive wide-ranging interview Thursday evening that the White House has lost patience with congressional Democrats, and forcefully dismissed their efforts to subpoena former White House counsel Don McGahn and other administration officials to testify.

“They’ve testified for many hours, all of them. I would say, it’s done,” Trump told Fox News’ Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge. “Nobody has ever done what I’ve done. I’ve given total transparency. It’s never happened before like this. They shouldn’t be looking anymore. It’s done.”

Trump added, in a shot at the total cost of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe: “Even my finances, it must have been looked at — for $35 million, I assume they looked at my taxes, I assume Mueller looked at my financial statements. For $35 million, and having 20 people, 49 FBI agents, and all of the staff and all of the money they spent, I assume they looked at my taxes, which are fine — except they are under audit, by the way.”

Trump has called the subpoena issued to McGahn by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., a “ridiculous” waste of time. The ex-White House lawyer sat for more than two dozen hours of interviews with Mueller and featured prominently in Mueller’s report, and Trump has disputed the account in the report that he ordered McGahn to fire Mueller at one point.

Trump additionally told Herridge he expected that key FBI documents that may shed light on the origins of the bureau’s probe into his campaign could be declassified and released within a matter of weeks, or months at the latest.

Trump previously told Fox News that his attorneys advised him not to declassify and release the full documents — including surveillance warrant applications to monitor former Trump aide Carter Page and related materials — while the Mueller probe was ongoing, for fear the administration would be accused of obstructing justice by doing so.

Asked about New York Attorney General Letitia James’ ongoing efforts to investigate him on multiple fronts, Trump dismissed the probes as partisan stunts.

“Can you imagine someone campaigning — she doesn’t know anything about me, and she’s campaigning on that fact,” Trump said of the Democrat. “They’ve gone through everything — my taxes, my financial statements, which are phenomenal. And I’m so clean. Think of it — after two and a half years, and all of that money spent, nothing. Very few people could have sustained that.”

He’s right.

As I sat in front of my television before going to work yesterday morning, I watched as veteran Democratic Congressional Democrats literally lost their sh…er…minds.

Between House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler literally calling President Trump everything but a Child of God and Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee’s majority-black 9th District sitting there with a rubber chicken, eating KFC, the American people were bearing witness to a scene straight from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”.

In their horrible grief over the disappointing outcomes of both the 2016 President Election and the Special Counsel’s Investigation, the Democratic Party, as evidenced by the Judicial Committees in both Houses of Congress, has experienced a psychotic break.

They cannot and will not except the reality in front of them.

Nadler and company can subpoena Attorney General Barr, Former White House Counsel Don McGahn, and even Trump’s children and grandchildren, but it will all be for naught.

They can all tell Congress to “talk to the hand”, just as Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress over the “Operation Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal.

The reason being, per The Washington Post, Trump, just like Obama can invoke executive privilege.

According to the writer of the opinion piece, Michael W. McConnell,

…the House should recognize that the executive is an equal branch of government with constitutional privileges of its own. For a president to assert the rights of his office, as almost every president has done, is neither blameworthy nor impeachable.

And, as far as the State of New York’s Democratic Attorney General Letitia James is concerned, Trump is right. She has nothing.

All of this attacking by the Democrats is going to look even worse after the FBI Inspector General’s report comes out in a couple of weeks, followed by Trump’s releasing of the FISA Documents.

Then the entire world will see that all of this “sound and fury, signifying nothing” has been to cover the fact that member of the Obama Administration, UNDER ORDERS, did indeed SPY on Candidate Trump AND President Trump in a Deep State Operation which can only be called an act of sedition.

When that happens Rep. Steve Cohen and his fellow Democrats will no longer be eating Kentucky Fried Chicken.

They will be eating crow.

Until He Comes,
