Build the Wall

Photo Credit:Read me too –>;https://www.youngcons.com/one-map-about-the-u-s-border-walls-tells-you-all-you-need-to-know/ Mexico wants to seal it’s southern border as well. But that’s not racist? No because walls aren’t racist they are logical and democrats have always agreed with walls as well until Donald Trump came along and campaigned on it.

“Build the wall” has become a trademark of what Trump supporters hope to be President Trump’s legacy. This phrase means more than just a wall between the US and Mexico to us, but it means secure borders, safety and the rule of law restored. However, to the left, this means proof that Trump supporters and anyone that even utters such support for such a border wall is a racist.

This was not always the leftists ideology. As a matter of fact, it only became their ideology once Donald J. Trump spoke in support of a southern border wall.

Bill Clinton and Obama talk immigration and sound just like President Trump

[VIDEO] Trump Listens to President Obama & President Clinton on Immigration

President Obama says in this video that these actions are the same actions that every democratic and republican president before him, has taken in order to improve our immigration system. He also says that for anyone that questions his authority as president, to take these actions, should pass a bill.

This just proves that the backlash that President Trump has had from the media, Congress and District Courts on his immigration policies in general, has been FAKE OUTRAGE, designed to turn the public against him.

When will they all finally see this?

President Clinton Already Started Building a Southern Border Wall

President Bill Clinton was in favor of harsh immigration policies and even built barriers between the US and Mexico border during his presidency.

Hillary Clinton has also historically voted for a wall, has spoken in favor and admits to voting for a wall. During her husband’s administration, President Bill Clinton started Operations Safeguard and Hold the Line in 1993 which included the construction of 325 miles of a border wall/fence that is 20 feet tall in some areas.

Hillary Clinton demands United States build a wall at the Mexican border

Here is a compilation of Hillary admitting she wants a wall and even voted for it as a senator as well as admitting other top democrats she knows that voted for it as well.

Hillary Clinton “Build a wall” “deport illegals” compilation.

President Obama was in favor of building physical barriers at the US/Mexico border during his presidency and according to the video above, Hillary Clinton claims that she knows, that while he was a senator, he also voted in favor of building physical barriers, better known as walls or fencing. (Wall would obviously work the best so do it right the first time, or we now have to go back and fix it.)

“The bill before us will certainly do some good,” Obama said on the Senate floor in October 2006. He praised the legislation, saying it would provide “better fences and better security along our borders” and would “help stem some of the tide of illegal immigration in this country.”

President Obama was called the Deporter in Chief, but was he really? That’s only half truth, because all news these days is half truths and that’s where fake news is born.

This article from the Migration Policy Institute explains exactly why that is only a half truth. President Obama has the highest removals, but that’s not all the numbers. When you add all the numbers, removals plus returns, President Obama’s Administration was about 50% less strict about their immigration policy than President Bush or President Clinton’s.

  • Removal: The compulsory movement of a noncitizen out of the United States based on a formal order of removal.
  • Return: The movement of a noncitizen out of the United States based on permission to withdraw their application for admission at the border or an order of voluntary departure
  • Deportation: A general, nontechnical term describing the movement of a noncitizen out of the United States through either a formal removal or a return.
  • Apprehension: An action by immigration enforcement officers to take physical custody of a noncitizen.

The Obama Administration has the most removals of all the other presidents, that is true, however total deportations is about 50% less than the previous other administrations. The total apprehensions is also about 50% less than the previous administrations. Which to me suggests that Obama may have been the Illegal Removal in Chief, but as for total Deportations, and Apprehensions, he falls short.

The lower number of border apprehensions during The Obama Administration suggests a number of concerns. It may have a lot to do with depletion of resources, technology and staffing issues for our border control security. Which after President Trump took office he laid out a plan in an executive order to hire more border security officers and ICE. His original plan may be a little too ambitious for now, but he seems to be committed to the cause.

Source: Migration Policy Institute

On the table it shows that the Obama Administration did in fact start out very tough on removals and stay consistent on them over the course of both terms. However, returns started out very strict and then fizzled out by his second term. He has the most removals, but his returns are only about 20% of the totals of his two predecessors.

So how does the Trump Administration compare to the numbers on the table above? Well those numbers for 2017 are not in yet of course, but we know one of the most important items on the Trump agenda is border security and immigration enforcement. I hope to see more immigration reform legislation soon as well. (Kate’s Law passed -amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to revise provisions relating to the reentry of removed aliens.)

The big controversy in the news at the moment is whether or not President Trump will extend DACA or not. If he does he will most likely anger his base and give his haters ammunition to say he’s a liar. Which is just ignorant, because he’s allowed to change his mind, and his haters should want that, since most of them want to see DACA preserved. They tend to find fault with everything that this administration does even when they agree.

I personally won’t be all that mad if the president extends DACA. I have a lot of compassion for people that came here when they were young and not by their own choice. I however think that the program is flawed and should be revised. I also think these people should have a path to citizenship, (and not quite sure why they aren’t trying to become legal.) But I am a firm believer in not giving “special treatment” to anyone or any group of people. (The immigrants that came here LEGALLY, need NOT be disrespected for doing so.)

Hillary Clinton on unaccompanied illegals: send them back!!

At a televised town hall event with CNN, Hillary Clinton was forced to make a statement on the surge of unaccompanied minors crossing the border illegally. She tried to dodge the question, but Christiane Amanpour was surprisingly insistent which elicited this response from her.

The other big item on the bill for this month is whether or not the budget will be passed with money to start the “big beautiful border wall.” Even if it doesn’t, there are already prototypes being built and bids being made, so one may not worry, because this wall will happen!

As far as I am concerned, I don’t mind who pays for it, whether it be Mexico, my taxes or whatever. I would just as soon start a gofundme account to start building it, (which has been done by many others already.) If everyone in the country gave just one dollar we would have more than enough money to build it and maintain it for several years.

I would be willing to pay my share for the wall yearly, to keep it big and beautiful and I know many others just like me that feel the same way. I am a true believer in this wall. I’ve seen the interviews from folks that live along the border and what they have to deal with. They do not want strangers lurking in their backyard at night as they sneak into the country, as I wouldn’t want that either.

Border Security with Judge Jeanine

 

It seems that President Trump’s tough talk on border security has had quite the effect on the amount of illegal immigrants trying to cross through our southern border. I’ve seen percentages from 50-70% drop in illegal border crossing attempts. According to BBC back in April that number was at a 17 year low. So in some ways President Trump IS THE WALL.
(I tend to believe BBC more than American news networks because they are less likely of printing fake news for the purpose of their own agenda. Whether that agenda be a negative or positive one.)

Those that argue that the wall isn’t necessary or it’s racist aren’t thinking of the big picture. If it’s in our power to cut down on crime, drugs, and human trafficking, we should do everything in our power to do it. By doing so we are saving lives. We are saving people from gangs, drugs and other crimes that are committed by illegal immigrants. Unlike the crime that is already in our country, this is a chance to have some sort of control over possible future crime. (That is not a racist statement, it’s true. More CRIMINALS come here ILLEGALLY, because HONEST people DON’T usually knowingly break the law, they go through LEGAL immigration.)

This doesn’t mean a wall will solve all of these problems, but it will surely not make them worse and will eventually help. There will always be ways to get around it, fly over it or whatever, but not everyone will have that capability, so it will stop many. You can not put a price on saving a life.

Hopefully at some point the lefties will be able to get passed their epic election loss, pop their Trump Hysteria Syndrome Bubbles that they have created as a “safe space,” and be able to give credit where it’s due.

I long for the day they all realize how amazing our president really is and how much he actually cares about the people of this country.

I long for the day they all realize that news is bias on both sides, that media will deceive for ratings, clicks and because they have their own agendas. They have lost integrity of reporting truth and do not care that their actions have consequences. They are continuing to divide the country further, and are the root of the problem, it is not the president. He is not the one destroying the country, he is trying desperately to hold us all together, and only receives resistance every step of the way.

I long for the day that President Trump is given the benefit of the doubt, by all, instead of jumping to the worst conclusion about him and when the double standards will finally stop. But I won’t hold my breath.

I am ashamed: of how my fellow country men and women have rioted in the streets, burned our flag, committed acts of violence against each other, shut down each other’s freedoms, tore down our history, because they are too ashamed to face it, uttered hateful racist things about each other, and disrespected our president in ways I never even imagined. I pray that our country will heal and our people will find common ground and stop the hate.

We are a country of laws, so people need to start following them!

Example Of How Obama’s DACA Can Hurt Your Kid
Written by Dennis Michael Lynch

Normal people. We all have one thing in common. We all love our kids.

Life isn’t fair, and we all have our mountains to climb. It is not your fault you were born in America, you should not feel guilty about it. Nor should you compromise your dreams and the dreams of your family because somebody else’s parents broke our immigration laws. DACA is a program that hurts American workers, and American kids. It is amnesty.

Trump: ‘A Lot Of Love’ In Texas
Written by DML

The Alt-left, the mainstream media, and most liberal lawmakers will have you believe that President Donald J. Trump is a racist. The question is, why?

He’s tough on immigration because he understands the pitfalls, costs, and dangers of mass immigration both legal and illegal. He’s tough because he believes in the rule of law. But make no mistake, he is not tough on immigration because he hates immigrants.

Whether it’s the debate over the border wall, or him calling out all sides for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, the media uses the same push back…. he’s a racist. Meanwhile, he has never said anything that is racist. He has never looked down on another race and claimed they are less than he is as a white man.

Leaks are BAD! M’Kay?

leakers
On Friday August 4, 2017 Attorney General Sessions announced that there will now be a HUGE initiative to crackdown on LEAKS

I love this guy! Finally someone is going to call a plumber! This Administration is drowning in leaks!

A.G. Jeff Sessions said, “the culture of leaking must stop.”

Since January, Jeff Sessions said the Justice Department has “more than tripled the number of active leak investigations, as compared to the number pending at the end of the Obama administration.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ct0IZmDtEQM



Press briefing on the investigation into leaks of classified material

A.G. Sessions announces the DOJ’s plans to pursue the staggering amount of illegal leaks of classified information happening. Already 4 people have been charged. He warns all that are participating in leaks to beware, the DOJ and FBI are watching, so don’t do it. The press must think twice before printing these leaks because they are putting lives in danger, and hindering our country’s ability to have relationships with the rest of the world.


Why are leaks bad?

Not everyone seems to agree that leaks are bad. (Just ask Maxine Waters.)

THEY ARE BAD. 

There is a big difference between what we call “Whistleblowing” and “Leaking”.

“Whistleblowing” is only bad for the persons that are being told on. It exposes illegal behavior so that the corruption can stop.

A whistleblower is a person who exposes any kind of information or activity that is deemed illegal, unethical, or not correct within an organization that is either private or public.


“Leaking” is a deliberate release of information, usually sensitive and/or classified meant to paint a person, persons or group/company/organization/government in a very bad light, with no real evidence or confirmation that something illegal actually happened, usually by anonymous sources or sources and information that can not be authentically confirmed.
(There isn’t much reason to leak good information, normally people just make that public anyway…)

Leaks don’t have to be completely true or true at all, and many times it’s half truths spun in a way to look very negative. They are usually classified information so they can’t be clarified and/or corrected, so the many who hear these leaks end up believing them as truth. (This is a form of “fake news”, ….half-truth classified leaks, that can’t be debunked, because the information can’t be talked about.)

Leaking is used as a weapon in politics, business, and journalism. Negative information gets much more attention than positive information, because most people feel better about themselves when they read, hear or see that someone else is doing worse off than they are.

Leaks are designed to imply negativity or the possibility of crimes, but with no  absolute evidence. More so than not there are no victims, it’s only an implication designed to erode confidence in the subject. This is why they work so well as a weapon in politics and business.

Leaking can be extremely dangerous when involving government confidentiality regarding war, undercover law enforcement, foreign policy and relationships, and other sensitive and confidential information.

The Importance of Stopping Leaks

Kellyanne Conway said finding leakers is easier than leakers think. She might be right.

“I think it’s easier to figure out who’s leaking than some of the leakers realize,” Conway said.

Step 1: Find a pool of suspects
Step 2: Shrink your pool using digital tools
Step 3: Subpoena and grab personal data
Step 4: Question and prosecute

Attorney Jay Sekulow provides EVIDENCE Obama set up coup against Trump

17 days before Barack Obama was to leave office on January 3, 2017, he set up the Trump administration for leaks by issuing Executive Order 12333, under section 2.3 specifically, also approved by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and the National Security Advisor Susan Rice.

Obama’s order expanded the power of the National Security Agency (NSA) to share globally intercepted communications, including phone calls, with 16 other government intelligence agencies, greatly compounding the likelihood of future leaks from a much greater number of Obama loyalists still working in the Trump administration.

President Trump must revise Executive Order 12333, remove Obama’s loyalists from all government agencies and absolutely prosecute all White House leakers for espionage.

This change in the handling of classified information has created a shadow intelligence agency also known as “the deep state”. It is a soft coup to undermine the electoral vote and will of the American people. Until these issues are addressed and the holdovers are cleared, the leaks will continue, because there are too many people with there hands in the classified information cookie jar who do not support our president.

 

 

The Lame Duck Timeline Strongly Suggests President Obama Set Up Intelligence Scheme To Undermine Trump… February 17, 2017

Specifically through the use of a lame-duck executive order, President Obama authorized multiple intelligence agencies to have access to Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) including phone call intercepts.

First, as the New York Times reported that in its final days, the Obama Administration expanded the power of the National Security Agency (NSA) to share globally intercepted personal communication with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying any privacy protections.

Second, the new rules, which were issued in an unclassified document, entitled Procedures for the Availability or Dissemination of Raw Signals Intelligence Information by the National Security Agency (NSA), significantly relaxed longstanding limits on what the NSA may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations.

These operations are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. Surveillances include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls, and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.

The changes initiated by the Obama Administration in its waning days empowered far more agents and officials to search through raw intelligence data. As a direct consequence of the change in policy, it appears that the prospect of intel leaks grew exponentially.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed the new rules permitting the NSA to disseminate raw signals intelligence information on January 3, 2017 after Director of National Intelligence James Clapper signed them on December 15, 2016. (read more)

The dates here are key, because it was after the 2016 election when DNI James Clapper was reported to be recommending the removal of NSA head, Admiral Michael Rogers:

[November 19th, 2016] (Reuters) The heads of the Pentagon and the U.S. intelligence community have recommended to President Barack Obama that the director of the National Security Agency, Admiral Michael Rogers, be removed from his position, sources familiar with the matter said on Saturday.
The recommendation by Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, first reported by The Washington Post, was delivered to the White House last month. (read more)

Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded With Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump

April 19, 2017, 12:04 am
This is the open scandal that Congress should investigate.

An article in the Guardian in April provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s.

Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people.

John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump.

A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump.

The Guardian story is written in a style designed to flatter its sources (they are cast as high-minded whistleblowers), but the upshot of it is devastating for them, nonetheless, and explains why all the criminal leaks against Trump first originated in the British press. According to the story, Brennan got his anti-Trump tips primarily from British spies but also Estonian spies and others. The story confirms that the seed of the espionage into Trump was planted by Estonia. The BBC’s Paul Wood reported last year that the intelligence agency of an unnamed Baltic State had tipped Brennan off in April 2016 to a conversation purporting to show that the Kremlin was funneling cash into the Trump campaign.

Any other CIA director would have disregarded such a flaky tip, recognizing that Estonia was eager to see Trump lose (its officials had bought into Hillary’s propaganda that Trump was going to pull out of NATO and leave Baltic countries exposed to Putin). But Brennan opportunistically seized on it, as he later that summer seized on the half-baked intelligence of British spy agencies (also full of officials who wanted to see Trump lose).

British spy head Robert Hannigan “passed material in summer 2016 to the CIA chief, John Brennan.” To ensure that these flaky tips leaked out, Brennan disseminated them on Capitol Hill. It then turned up on the front page of the New York Times.

All of this took place at the very moment Brennan was auditioning for Hillary. He desperately wanted to keep his job and despised Trump for his alleged “Muslim ban,” a matter near and dear to Brennan’s heart. Not only was he an apologist for the Muslim Brotherhood, but Brennan’s Islamophilia dated to his days in college, when he spent a year in Cairo learning Arabic and taking courses in Middle Eastern studies and later he got a graduate degree with an emphasis in Middle Eastern studies.

Out of this Islamophilia came a special dislike of Michael Flynn, who had planned to rip up the Obama-era “reset” with Muslim countries. Furious with Flynn for his apostasy from political correctness, Brennan and other Obama aides couldn’t resist the temptation to take him out after rifling through transcripts of his calls with the Russian ambassador. They caught him in a lie to Mike Pence and made sure the press knew about it.

Leak Leak Leak. That was one of the very first substantially damaging leaks that came out of the Trump Administration. It is still a “go to” talking point I see often from liberals, democrats, and Trump Haters that are clinging to the Russian/Trump Collusion story.

Former U.N. Amb. Power Unmasked ‘Hundreds,’ Despite Not Being Intel Official

Nunes disclosed in his letter that the former Obama administration had “easy access” to sensitive classified information and that they may have used it to “achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information.”

Congressional investigators uncovered that “one official [whose] position has no apparent intelligence-related function”—now believed to be Power—”made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama administration.”

Little justification was provided for the request of this sensitive classified information, which government insiders described as outside the purview of a U.N. ambassador.
One official noted that the amount of unmasking from someone in a position that really had no need for unmasking of raw intel was in and of itself disturbing.

“Asking for an unmasking is rare at the [National Security Council] or the State Department. It is frankly shocking that anyone would be asking for dozens, and if there are really hundreds it is indefensible,” said the former official. “It does make me wonder why [National Security Agency] didn’t stop her [Power], by questioning this practice and getting the head of NSA to raise it with the president or the national security adviser.”
Ben Rhodes has also been identified as a ‘person of interest’ in the investigation by lawmakers.

“The [intelligence] committee also understands that Obama-era officials sought the identification of Trump transition officials within intelligence reports,” according to Nunes’s letter. “However, there was no meaningful explanations offered by these officials as to why they needed or how the would use this U.S. personal information, and thus, the committee is left with the impression that these officials may have used this information for improper purposes, including the possibility of leaking.”

“More pointedly,” the letter states, “some of the requests for unminimized U.S. person information were followed by anonymous leaks of those names to the media.”

The current climate of leaks is creating even more hostility and divisions within our country. It’s possibly putting people’s lives at risk, (by exposing under cover investigations and making those involved vulnerable.) But most importantly it is negatively affecting our country’s ability to make better and more fair trade deals, and share/receive important classified information with other world leaders regarding national security.

 

A letter from H.R. McMaster said Susan Rice will keep her top-secret security clearance

Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice was unmasking members of President Trump’s team and other Americans, Trump’s own national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, sent an official letter giving her unfettered and continuing access to classified information and waiving her “need-to-know” requirement on anything she viewed or received during her tenure.

This action by McMasters, amongst many other shady and questionable actions by the General lead me to believe that he does not have our President’s best interest in mind. President Trump doesn’t seem to agree with me yet. He issued a statement today conveying his support for General McMaster.

However, he did the same just before he fired Michael Flynn, Jim Comey, Anthony Scaramucci, Rience Priebus and I think he did the same just before Sean Spicer resigned. So, I hope this is just more of the same.

What is the plan moving forward?

Sessions Claims DOJ Is Reviewing Policy for Subpoenaing Media, Say Government, Congress Must Do Better

Sessions then detailed the steps he took to crack down on the leaking.

First, he pointed to his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, and the FBI Director to “monitor the progress of each leak.”

He also “appointed our U.S. Attorneys to prioritize cases involving unauthorized disclosures.”

From there, the attorney general claimed that he has “tripled the number of active leak investigations.”

He continued, “In response, the FBI has increased sources to leak cases and has created a new counterintelligence unit to manage these cases appeared simultaneously, this department is reviewing policies that impact leak investigations.”

Sessions also said that the Justice Department would be reviewing its policies regarding the subpoenaing of media.

“We respect the important role of the press plays, and will give them respect,” Sessions said. “They cannot place lives at risk. We must balance the press’s role with protecting our national security with the lives of those who serve in the intelligence community, the armed forces, and all law-abiding Americans.”

Sessions ended by doubling down on the promise that the leaking will end.

“We will not allow anonymous sources with security clearances to sell out our country,” he said.

“All of us in government and in every agency in Congress, and Congress must do better. Their first requirement is personal discipline, education, and repetition within our departments and agencies will make a difference. Prevention is what is required, and investigation of a leak is too late, really. The damage is done.”

YES! Unfortunately the damage is done. Preventative procedures can only help further damage.

How are/were leaks being used as weapons against the Trump Administration
BOMBSHELL revelations show how Obama “WEAPONIZED” intel against Trump
May 28, 2017

Obama administration officials may have actually outdone Nixon in the dirty tricks department and actually “weaponized” intelligence agencies against American citizens including — Trump team members.

As the New York Post reports, “New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials.

We now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated privacy protections while snooping through foreign intercepts involving US citizens — and failed to disclose the breaches, prompting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court a month before the election to rebuke administration officials.

The story concerns what’s known as “upstream” data collection under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, under which the NSA looks at the content of electronic communication. Upstream refers to intel scooped up about third parties: Person A sends Person B an e-mail mentioning Person C. Though Person C isn’t a party to the e-mail, his information will be scooped up and potentially used by the NSA.
Further, the number of NSA data searches about Americans mushroomed after Obama loosened rules for protecting such identities from government officials and thus the reporters they talk to.

A number of those searches were made from the White House, and included private citizens working for the Trump campaign, some of whose identities were leaked to the media. The revelations earned a stern rebuke from the ACLU and from civil-liberties champion Sen. Rand Paul.”

Apparently Sen. Rand Paul and the ACLU weren’t the only folks disturbed by US intel agencies being used for political purposes.

“The FISA court called it a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue” that NSA analysts — in violation of a 2011 rule change prohibiting officials from searching Americans’ information without a warrant — “had been conducting such queries in violation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had been previously disclosed to the Court.”

On top of failing to disclose breaches, ballooning data searches, and violating the 2011 rule change for warrantless searches, there’s another minor little problem revealed during these testimonies. Remember that little dossier linking Trump to some Russia connection? Remember the giant uproar caused by the dossier and the ensuing MONTHS of accusations by liberals and Democrat politicians practically calling for President Trump to be tried for treason?

Well, as it turns out “Obama intelligence officials really had no good reason attaching a summary of a dossier on Trump to a highly classified Russia briefing they gave to Obama just weeks before Trump took office.” Or shall we say, they had a reason, but it was a no good reason, and one of those no good reasons was John Brennan.
Under congressional questioning Tuesday, Obama’s CIA chief John Brennan said the dossier did not “in any way” factor into the agency’s assessment that Russia interfered in the election. Why not? Because as Obama intel czar James Clapper earlier testified, “We could not corroborate the sourcing.”

But that didn’t stop Brennan in January from attaching its contents to the official report for the president. He also included the unverified allegations in the briefing he gave Hill Democrats.

In so doing, Brennan virtually guaranteed that it would be leaked, which it promptly was.
In short, Brennan politicized raw intelligence. In fact, he politicized the entire CIA.
As it stands right now, Obama administration officials may have posed a far greater threat to the American election process than any outside entity. While fingers point at Donald Trump and his administration, it’s looking more and more like sleight of hand to divert our attention from the real shady dealings in the swamp. Trump needs to clean out every single Obama holdover, but for some reason, he’s taking his time.

So what the mainstream media doesn’t want to talk about is that the Obama Administration, (and now their holdovers,) have used and are still using their relaxed rules and their vast unmasking powers to unmask names and then leak information that could possibly make, (and most likely will make,) President Trump and his people look bad.

Then instead of calling them what they are…. leakers, they have been painted as heroes and have called them whistleblowers with no evidence that anything illegal has taken place except the leaking of classified information itself.

The expanding of the amount of people who now have access to the unmasked data has assured that there will be an endless flow of leaks. Not only that, but they have proven to be strategically leaked to do the most possible damage to the Trump Administration.

Hopefully with the changes that the Trump Administration has made with staff and the crackdown by the DOJ on prosecution of leakers with get the problem under control.

Transgenders and the military – Opinion

Your extremely important struggle to be your whole self will have to take a back seat to make sure your duties are 110% covered, because lives are at risk if you are not completely present.

Talk about a fashion statement: Transgender veteran, Carla Lewis, with a shirt that reads “Transgender Veteran: I Fought For Your Right To Hate Me.”

Trump alienates entire LGBT community with ONE tweet

–“After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow…Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” Trump tweeted.

“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming…victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail. Thank you”–

(President Trump’s announcement on Twitter did not say what would happen to transgender people already in the military.)

_______________________________

 

One of my very first blogs was to the LGBT community about how they should not be worried that President Trump would not take rights away from them. I’m sorry to say that in this case, I was wrong.

However, for this particular case, I should have seen it coming. We all should have, and heaven forbid, I might actually agree with it, in part, but not because I believe in taking rights away from anyone, but because I believe we should all be treated equally and no one deserves special treatment. Before you get angry with me and close this window, please let me explain myself.

Yes, of course we should all have equal rights, but during a transition or pre-transition a transgender person, just like anyone else with emotional strains that rely on medical treatment, probably should not serve. (With maybe some exceptions, as to every rule.) Compared to anyone else with mental and emotional issues, those people aren’t aloud to serve either.

I don’t think being transgender means being crazy, and I’m not comfortable with those that may imply such a thing. However, it comes with emotional baggage that may or may not get better with a transition surgery. Transgenders may experience a number of emotional burdens such as but not limited to: depression, anxiety, and restlessness. (Gender Dysphoria) All are mental/emotional problems that would hinder any other person from being able to serve.

I feel for my transgender friends, but I can’t help but agree that the military is not a free ride to get your transition surgery done. That is not taxpayers responsibility. That’s all you and your decision. It’s not life threatening, although it may feel that way to you and I’m sure most of us can’t even imagine your struggle. I wish that all transgenders could have what you need to be happy without the extensive financial burden, but making taxpayers pay for it, is not the answer, nor is it fair.  

Serving in the military will also require you to be extremely focused, despite all the changes, difficulty and turmoil you may be feeling inside, because many people are counting on you and trusting you with their lives. Your extremely important struggle to be your whole self will have to take a back seat to make sure your duties are 110% covered, because lives are at risk if you are not completely present. That means no hormone episodes, no family support system around you, and when in combat no guarantee that you will have your proper hormone medications.

Pre-transition: I have witnessed a dear friend of mine’s confusion, depression, anxiety, mood swings, and self consciousness. All of these burdens seem to me, to be too distracting and painful to serve in full capacity in the military. I can’t imagine how much harder it would be on her to go through such drastic changes to her body with that added responsibility and stress.

During transition, they are very mentally and emotionally strained; being in the military is mentally straining enough. Although, I do feel for those who want to serve but are burdened with their own gender issues. Knowing people that have dealt with the confusion, stress, depression and ridiculing that comes with being transgender; I am sympathetic and empathetic to what they go through and the journey they must take to become who they feel they are on the inside. The military doesn’t seem to me like a good place to have to go through any of that. As someone that has been through depression, anxiety and bullying myself, I can not imagine being responsible for other people’s lives during those times, even though I obviously would have the best intentions in mind.

 

Some of the valid questions raised about Transgenders in the Military

Comment I read by a Marine:

“Can a Transgender get necessary hormones down range in a combat zone? – No.

Can a Transgender suffer hormonal imbalance causing questionable emotions during a firefight? – Yes.

Are you willing to stand next to a withdrawing Transgender in a battle and just hope they are in the right state of mind despite having been hunkered in a field in Kandahar for 2 weeks without supplies much less medical hormones and just trust that state of mind with your life?

Nope.

It’s not a matter of acceptance, it’s just the supply a medic carries is not adequate to keep up with that type of demand and the military can’t even provide adequate barracks STATESIDE in many posts so they can’t afford the medical necessities a Transgender would require.”

_______________________________

 

He raises some valid issues, you can not deny. As I said before, I believe we all deserve equal rights, however if I have mental, and/or emotional issues, the Military will not accept me. You can not deny that making a transition causes mental and emotional strain. So why should a transgender’s depression or anxiety be overlooked, and someone else’s not? That is special treatment.

However, (and this is the part that I may not necessarily agree with the President on,) once the individual has completed their transition; after they have become who they want to be; have any medical hormonal therapy needs adequately addressed, (I know from experience of being a woman post hysterectomy, hormones can be wicked evil things when not taken properly;) as well as emotional issues ironed out in order to maintain emotional and mental stability; as long as they are physically and mentally able; and as long as the person passes all the required tests just as every other soldier, I do not see the problem with said transgender serving in the military.

Maybe from that point it should be dealt with on a case by case basis, because every individual is always different and blanket rules are hardly ever a one fits all.

Although with all that said, we should wait and see how this new development is implemented, because one thing I’ve noticed with President Trump,…… he always expresses the most harsh stance on an issue and then later he lessens up as if he’s making a compromise.

I’m not sure if he does that on purpose to show that he WILL compromise, or if it’s just a habit, because of his style of parenting, after being a father of several children.

I do think it shows that he can be reasonable when presented with the right information to change his opinion.

Another Comment by a Service Member:

Nobody has a “right” to serve in the Military. Nobody.

What makes people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? Very far from it.

The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short.

Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers. Poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head? Self-identify as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can’t run the requred course in the required time? Can’t do the required number of pushups?

Not really a “morning person” and refuse to get out of bed before noon?

All can be reasons for denial.

The Military has one job. War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability.

Did someone just scream “That isn’t Fair”? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful.

YOU change yourself to meet Military standards. Not the other way around.

I say again: You don’t change the Military… you must change yourself.

The Military doesn’t need to accommodate anyone with special issues.

The Military needs to Win Wars.

If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality…

Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors.

Who’s next in line?

Former Transgender Person Writes Brutally Honest Letter Agreeing With Trump’s Military Ban

Adding to viewpoints in the fray is a piece by Walt Heyer, an author who seeks to “raise public awareness about those who regret gender change” and runs a website SexChangeRegret.com. His commentary in the Daily Signal is certainly provocative.

On Agreement with Donald Trump’s Ban

I think he made the right decision—and as someone who lived as trans-female for several years, I should know.

On the U.S. Military Paying for Gender Transition Surgeries

Paying for transition-related surgeries for military service members and their families is beyond comprehensible.

On Political Correctness’s Place in the Military

Perhaps they have forgotten that our military was forged to be the world’s strongest fighting force, not a government-funded, politically correct, medical sex change clinic for people with gender dysphoria.

On Gender Dysphoria

Gender dysphoria, the common diagnosis for one who feels at odds with his or her birth gender, develops from prolonged anxiety and depression. People are not born that way.

The “proof” for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria is having strongly held feelings—but feelings can and often do change over time.

On the Cost of Gender Transition Surgeries

Transitioning can be expensive—up to $130,000 per person for numerous body-mutilating and cosmetic procedures over many months (or years) to fashion the body to appear as the opposite sex.

Yet, no matter how skilled the surgeon, or how much money is spent, it is biologically impossible to change a man into a woman or a woman into a man. The change is only cosmetic.

On the Emotional Toll Gender Transition May Take

Beyond the financial cost, there’s the question of the service member’s military readiness during their transition or detransition, as the process often comes with a great deal of anxiety and emotional instability.

I know of many who have struggled to adapt to the new gender role for years after reassignment surgery.

On the Military’s Mission

The military is expected to prepare its members in warfare: to kill, destroy, and break our enemies. The most important factors in preparing a strong military are not hormone therapy, surgical sex changes, or politically correct education.

We need psychologically fit, emotionally sound, highly trained troops to protect our nation from its enemies.

Whether or not one agrees with Heyer’s argument, these are valid points that must be grappled with in order to dispute the rationale of Trump’s ban. The appeal to identity politic is not enough: There are too many American lives on the line.

Former Transgender drops “Reality Check” BOMB on Trump’s military decision

TRUTH BOMB: Why one combat vet’s post supporting the transgender military ban is going viral

“War is no place for people who are mentally, emotionally, or physically confused or in turmoil. You have your s*** together, or you don’t,” he stated. “And if you don’t, you’ll just get people needlessly killed. Political correctness has absolutely no place in the military.”

Salzman couldn’t be more right about this issue.

The military isn’t for the faint of heart, which is precisely why the standards to join are so high. We want the best of the best defending our liberty. To ensure that our way of life is secure, and that our troops are as safe as possible, candidates for enlistment must be of sound mind.


6 Myths About Transgender People In The Military

1. You have a right to serve in the military. As David French points out, the driving fallacy behind this belief is that serving in the military is the equivalent of “private employment” and “individual empowerment.” It’s not.

Lady Gaga Accidentally Proves Why Banning Transgenders from Military Service Is a Smart Idea

Sincerely, did you know of the group you singled out today, 45% of them ages (18 to 24) have attempted suicide already?

Breaking: James Dobson Breaks Silence, Issues Trump Statement That Will Infuriate Millions

“For eight years, the Department of Defense under President Obama, went about the systematic and intentional transformation of the U.S. military, unnecessarily disrupting the world’s most elite fighting force from their most pressing and urgent requirement — keeping our country and its allies safe,” read a statement from Dobson.

“It is heartening to have a commander in chief who puts the expert opinions of his generals and military officials ahead of the destructive forces of political correctness and identity politics,” he continued.

“I support the president’s decision and commend this administration for having the courage to protect our military from what would only amount to an enormous and costly distraction,” Dobson concluded.

VIRAL VIDEO: Army Vet Defends Military Transgender Ban

It’s your choice to do with your body what you wish, but the military is not there to serve as a social experiment, nor pay for transgender transitioning cost related to hormone replacement therapy, or sex change operations. The military serves as a fighting force that guards this nation and does not need to be burdened with the extreme changes it would be required to undergo to accommodate such a small demographic. @realdonaldtrump has made a wise decision. Let’s also not forget that gender dysphoria is still classified as a psychological disorder, and within the trans community there is a 61% suicide rate which is a clear indicator of psychological issues.

Studies have consistently found severe psychological issues associated with gender dysphoria. A 2016 study found that among military veterans identifying as transgender,” 90% have at least one mental health diagnosis, such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or depression, and nearly 50% had a hospitalization after a suicide attempt or suicidal thoughts.” An extensive 2011 study by the Karolinska Institute found that sex reassignment surgery rather than helping transgender individuals, resulted in worse psychological issues down the road. The study found that ten years after surgery, their “suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable non transgender population.

Transgender Surgeries Would Cost Pentagon $1.3 BillionSex-change surgeries cost an average $132,000 each – via Washington Free Beacon

Taxpayer-funded sex-change surgeries would cost the Pentagon $1.3 billion over 10 years.

“The 10-year cost estimate is for surgery only and is adjusted for 3 percent inflation; it accounts for Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve members currently serving as well as new recruits over the same time period,” the document states. “It uses the FY 18 DoD number for total number of military members and multiplies it by the percentage of military personnel assumed to be transgender as reported by the UCLA Williams Institute and the National Center for Transgender Equality.”

The 2014 Williams Institute study found there were 15,500 transgender individuals actively serving, or 0.7 percent of the military population. By adjusting the figure for the enlistment numbers of 2,130,000, there are currently 14,910 transgender service members.

Thirty percent will likely seek surgeries, or 4,473 transgender troops. The average cost per surgery is $132,000, which is a combination of the average cost of male to female ($140,450) and female to male ($124,400) surgeries.

The cost to taxpayers for these surgeries would be $590 million, and $770 million with a 3 percent inflation rate by 2027.

Hartzler’s office calculated the additional costs of surgeries for new transgender recruits every year.

There are 178,000 new military members per year, and assuming 0.7 percent are transgender, 1,246 new transgender service members each year. Assuming 30 percent get surgeries, there would be an additional 374 surgical transitions per year, or 3,740 over 10 years. Those surgeries would cost $493 million, and with 3 percent inflation a total of $579 million by 2027.

The costs of active duty transgender surgeries and those of new recruits over a 10-year period total $1.349 billion.

It is likely even more transgender service members would seek sex reassignment surgeries if they are taxpayer-funded.

More than 30 percent of transgender individuals say they want to have various sex reassignment surgeries in the future, according to the 2011 National Transgender Discrimination Survey.

Fifty-three percent of men who identify as women say they someday want a breast augmentation, and 61 percent say want an orchiectomy, the surgical removal of one or both testicles, in the future.

Sixty-four percent say they want a vaginoplasty, the construction of a vagina, someday.

Hartzler’s office said their cost estimate is more accurate than a study commissioned under the Obama administration by the RAND Corporation, which is federally funded by the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

The RAND study only provided cost estimates for one year, did not adjust for inflation, and only included active duty transgender troops, and not from the National Guard and Reserve.

The RAND study also used a much lower estimate of the number of transgender individuals in the military, between 1,320 and 6,630. The Navy estimates there are at least 13,000 transgender individuals serving in the military, and the Williams Institute reported over 15,000 in 2014.

The RAND study also estimates only 5 percent would seek surgery, a much lower figure than the 30 percent average reported in the National Transgender Discrimination Survey. Furthermore, the study does not use cost estimates of the actual surgeries, but only the cost increase in private insurance premiums for plans that cover transgender services.

Hartzler’s office also points out the RAND study was commissioned by former secretary of defense Ash Carter under “the presumption that transgender persons can serve openly without adverse impact on military effectiveness and readiness.”

The $1.349 billion cost does not include additional medical costs of transgender service members, including hormone therapy, mental health services, or costs associated with surgical complications.

While serving, Chris Beck kept his self-identification as a female secret, thus not seeking medical aid from the military, as had begun to be offered to transgenders by the Obama administration in October 2016. The massive policy shift that was begun under Obama beginning in July 2016 included the military providing the medical services required for “transitioning,” which can require hormone therapy, sex reassignment surgery, and psychological counseling.

Resistance is Futile

Resistance is futile. It has come time to work together. Resisting is counterproductive! UNIFY

BorgTrump
“Borg Trump” represents unifying the country and a futile resistance in doing so. This photoshopped image is meant to be light hearted and humorous, not to represent any false ideas about President Trump being some sort of evil dictator. That is just ridiculous. Thanks for reading!

The democratic party wants to resist, resist, resist…. But then what? Resisting doesn’t make the problems that the world and our country is facing today go away. It actually makes our problems worse.

Instead of resisting how about we all work together and find solutions? 

Unify! 

Let’s talk about our differences and make compromises! 

Let’s try to understand each other 

instead of calling each other names and shutting down opposing speech. 

Let’s learn from our history 

instead of trying to erase it and regress back to segregating to our different safe spaces.

Let’s stop reacting to FALSE FEAR and take COMFORT IN FACTS. 

Let’s not believe everything we hear, 

but start researching answers, ideas etc.. and sharing them openly. 

Let’s stop pointing fingers at each other and assuming things about each other. 

Let’s stop blaming things; take responsibility and do better instead. 

Let’s finally put the results of the election behind us, for the good of our country, 

because dwelling on it isn’t help any of us.

The democratic party needs to get a positive message, because this resistance is tearing our country apart. They are LETTING the Russians “hijack our democracy”, by doing exactly what they had planned to do all along, ….make us lose faith in our government and TURN US AGAINST EACH OTHER!

By continuing to resist, we are only letting Russia get away with what they intended to do when they attacked our voting system, or whatever it was that they actually did. They didn’t need to change votes, because they shook our country’s people to the core by making us all question the integrity of our democracy. By resisting anything and everything that our newly elected president does or proposes, it is only dividing the country and giving Putin exactly what he wanted; to tear our country apart from the inside out. A successful attack of war without one single casualty from his people.

I know that it’s hard; when everyone and everything around you is telling you only negative things about President Trump, you tend to start believing only that bias. (I use to do the same thing.)

It’s really hard to find the positive things. There are MANY out there, but you won’t see them unless you dig. I assure you, just because you haven’t heard these positive things does not mean they aren’t happening. (You will have to wade through a lot of crap to find them, but they are out there.)

I know, …..it’s really trendy to hate the current President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

“Everybody is doing it.” 

One problem we have in America is following trends and emulating celebrities or people we admire. We also have a problem with always believing everything we hear and read.

Hating on President Trump and joining this “resistance,” just because everyone tells you to, is not having your own opinion. It’s called being a “sheep”. We all need to think independently. Your opinion should be YOUR OWN and it should be based on educated true information about the subject.

You should question everything! Please question everything. Question me, even. Fact check me, and fact check everyone!

It’s perfectly fine to not agree with everything the current administration does or has done. I don’t always agree with them, or the President. (Heck you don’t have to like them either.) We all have certain issues that we are passionate about. That is healthy and important. Passion gives us purpose.

We should just make sure we have that passion in the right place and we aren’t being counter productive or influenced by the wrong people, who are manipulating our passion and emotions for their own agenda….This is truth no matter who you are, or what “side” you are on. Our passion should be used for the good of our country not for the destruction of it.

There are threats out there to our way of life that must be stopped. We need to be able to recognize these threats without discriminating against others whom are innocent.

These days people are so confused, they don’t even know what they support or oppose anymore, because part of what they do support completely contradicts other core values they support. However they have only listened to the propaganda instead of doing the research themselves. This is true for both sides

I’ve seen people call the President everything from “pervert” to “liar” and everything else you can possibly think in between; extreme disrespect. We’ve had many presidents that could be called both and more. A pervert does more than just talk dirty in a private conversation over a decade ago. We’ve had presidents that have actually ACTED like perverts and then LIED about it.

It is also very hard to find a person, let alone politician that hasn’t lied at some point. No, it’s NOT ok to lie; but I also keep close tabs on President Trump, and most of the things that I’ve found that he has trouble truthing about are statistics. Which I’m sure he doesn’t look up, or generate himself. So whoever is doing that, is trying to make him look bad, maybe they are one of the leakers too. A lot of times when the media has said that he’s lied, it really hasn’t been a lie, many times they are just not giving him time to do what he’s promised, (his promise is taking longer than he thought it would,) and taken in consideration all of the resistance he’s been trying to work though or his words are twisted, taken too literally, and/or he’s repeated something someone else lied about without knowing it wasn’t true.

We have a big problem in this country with judging. If you are accused, then you are guilty until you are proven otherwise by at least a million people, a few celebrities and the media. Then MAYBE,… you will be exonerated. We also have a big problem with speculation, making accusations without facts, and believing everything we see and hear. After we’ve made up our mind, we tend to have been known to have selective hearing, are extremely bull head stubborn, a bias that leans toward a mob mentality and it’s extremely hard to find those lone wolves out there brave enough to think on their own.

You should know that a large portion of the negativity you have heard about President Trump is not even true. He isn’t against homosexuals, he’s not racist, (you may not know but he has plenty of supporters from all races, and sexual preferences,) he’s not a fascist, or Hitler, he’s not going to put anyone in camps, (so absurd,) he’s not trying to deport anyone that is here in the country legally…yes, LEGALLY. He isn’t an awful tyrant that takes pleasure in splitting up families. He’s not only trying to give all his cronies tax breaks and a free payday. All of these things you have heard about him are exaggerated and/or just completely untrue. It’s all been spun and twisted, designed to pit you against the current administration and hate anyone that supports them. Divide and conquer.

Most of the resistance doesn’t even understand what they are resisting. They think people are losing rights. They think that certain minorities are being picked on. It’s sad that people are being fear mongered to hate. Thats a lot of anxiety being generated for no reason. This is a form of control. If you are being led to believe propaganda you are being manipulated. Not everything that is happening should be considered bad for the left. President Trump has shown that he cares about the rights of all Americans. You don’t think so? Maybe you should look closer.

“What the heck do Democrats stand for?”

Once the Democrats have blindly resisted for however long, 2years, 4 years, 8 year, ….whatever.

Then what? They have absolutely no message, no vision for the country and nothing the voters can get behind. Hillary already tried the “I’m not Trump” Campaign and she lost. So they need something better than resistance.

We have a common enemy in Russia. We may have to work with them in the war against terror, and stay on a somewhat cordial basis with them,…so we aren’t at each other’s throats in an unnecessary war. BUT they have found a better way to take us down, without having to shed any of their own blood!

The Russians are effectively taking the US down from within! AND this “resistance” is letting them do it!

It’s time for us, the American people to get REALLY MAD!

But NOT at each other!

It’s time for us to show those Russians that you don’t mess with Americans! We can turn this around and we won’t have to shed any more blood.

We can stop the organized resistance that shows up at every pro Trump rally with masks on and uses violence to shut them down. This violence from ANTIFA that the media would rather you think is coming from the pro-Trumpers.

ANTIFA are the real Nazi’s and actually maybe you should research their history. This group isn’t anything new, they are just using this opportunity to find people for their anti-American cause, by deception and fear mongering.

This ANTIFA is an enemy of our democracy. They are an enemy of our freedom of speech. They are an enemy of the American people. They are an enemy of the world. They are creating a false narrative based on lies, then feeding it to mentally disturbed and brainwashed people that don’t even understand what they are resisting.

Our economy is booming.

We are on the verge of having health care that we can actually afford to use.

Our stock market has reached record high after RECORD HIGH!

Jobs are being created left and right.

Our veterans are being better cared for and our military is becoming stronger than ever.

Unnecessary job killing regulations are being abolished so that our businesses and economy can grow.

Our unemployment rate is down farther than it has been in years.

Illegal border crossings have fallen well over 60%, which means there are less drugs coming into the country, less human trafficking and less tax dollars being spent on illegal immigration.

President Trump has even found a way to compromise about the southern border wall by incorporating solar panels to help with our energy independence. That’s another thing,…

We are on our way to energy independence.

All these are good things, so why do you resist?

NO RIGHTS ARE BEING TAKEN AWAY FROM ANY GROUP OF PEOPLE. Rights are being given back to individual states.

Abortion is still legal for all of you that are pro choice.

We are saving $100 billion a year on terminating an agreement that was never ratified and would have done nothing to help our environment.

Backing out of that same agreement has inspired individual states to do their own work on preservation of our world, without us having to pay other countries money that they would never have to account for.

We are making fair and better trade deals, that will help our companies sell more products in other countries.

Why resist?

Law and Order is being restored in the country and no unconstitutional actions have been taken, despite what the media and 9th Circuit Court would like you to believe. (I think the Supreme Court confirmed that when they reinstated 95% of the “Travel Pause EO” on June 26, 2017.)

The “Travel Ban” is actually very similar to the ones that former President Obama installed several times.

No unprecedented laws have been made to restrict freedom, but we are enforcing the laws we already have.

No Russian collusion and if there was it’s now being investigated by a special counsel. (Actually the investigations seem to be digging up controversy and questions from the other side of the aisle.)

These things the Trump Administration are doing are not out of the ordinary, you just haven’t been paying attention for the last decade. We have a president that is fighting for our safety!

Why do you still resist?

Notice how “the resistance” has become the opposite of what it was 40 years ago. Think about it. They are fighting to enforce Sharia Law, suppressing opposing speech, banning right wing leaning books/authors and promoting segregation. (If you haven’t researched Sharia it goes against our Constitution, and DOES TAKE RIGHTS AWAY FROM PEOPLE.) Democrats have become fascists against conservative views, while preaching that they are against fascism.

The Left is hypocritically trying to shut down what they call “hate speech” while personally attacking the president, those close to him and those that support him with hate speech and violence that they are now calling art.

The two sides are just not understanding each other and realizing we really all want the same things.

We all want:

  • Peace
  • Equality
  • Safety
  • Compassion
  • Preserve our way of life
  • Preserve our world
  • Save those in trouble
  • Protect our loved ones
  • Prosper
  • BE FREE
  • HAPPINESS
  • Legislation that works to better our lives

We all just have different ideas about how to accomplish these things. That is where sharing ideas, compromising, and communicating will save us all.

The resistance is now resisting positive changes. They are resisting things that they’ve previously advocated for. They are resisting, when working together is in the better interest of the country and our people. Our country’s best interest should be the priority of all political parties, and the American people. I hope you resisters out there, wake up and realize the error of your ways, before it’s too late.

Good Luck out there fellow patriots!

God Bless You, God Bless the World and God Bless Our Great Country,…America.

The land of the free and home of the brave.

Let’s keep it that way.

The Paris Climate Accord Pull Out

President Trump did what he said he would do, and kept a campaign promise. Was it the right thing to do?

https://youtu.be/G3wE7MO1uSw
President Trump Makes Announcement of Decision to pull out on Paris Climate Accord – June 1, 2017
____________________

“Mass Trump Hysteria” that President Trump did what he said he’d do, pull out on a very unfair deal for Americans, called The Paris Climate Accord. This is just another campaign promise that he is fulfilling and no one should be even the least bit surprised that it has happened.

‘The Left’ thinks the sky is falling.

Trump Derangement Syndrome, (TDS) is becoming an epidemic among liberals, and democrats. If you haven’t noticed they are all being SO DRAMATIC! Seriously, take some xanax, please! Or maybe just stop with the fear mongering “Alphabet News Networks”. (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC) They like to get you all worked up by leaving out a lot of convenient facts, because it doesn’t fit the negative story line that big mean President Trump is some how ruining the world, yet again today. However, every single day we seem to get through each and every one of these alleged disasters perfectly fine. They only do this for ratings and their fan base eats it up.

No one is dying because we backed out of this deal. No one is going to die or suffer because we backed out of this deal. PERIOD.

I’m sorry I guess the daily freak outs are starting to really get to me.
(Stay with me here.)

I totally sympathize with you “lefties” out there. I believe in preserving our environment just as much as the next ‘tree hugger’. I love my garden, clean water and breathing clean crisp air. I love going for walks and enjoying nature. Before I started doing my own research instead of listening to the fear mongering media, I would probably be in some sort of hysteria too and hiding under my bed with my bottle of xanax.

I’ve learned over the past 5 or so months to just ‘Trust in Trump’.

He’s been right about almost everything else, even if the fear mongering condescending media won’t acknowledge when he is right.
(Trump is Always Right-A List)
No seriously, he may have quoted some statistics wrong, but I’m sure someone else did that research, so I give him a pass on numbers. He’s right about the big stuff and he is privy to much more information than you or I.

That might be a little hard for some of you out there to take, the fact that President Trump knows more than you do. Sting a little? Well it’s about time many of you come to terms with it and also come to terms with the fact that he’s president.

Can Trump help the climate without being in the Paris Accord?
Published on Jun 1, 2017

‘The Skeptical Environmentalist’ author Bjorn Lomborg, ‘The Next Revolution’ host Steve Hilton and Washington Free Beacon staff writer Elizabeth Harrington on President Trump pulling out of the Paris climate agreement.

“The Agreement doesn’t do enough to help climate change.”

____________________

President Trump shows over and over again that he’s a reasonable man. Even though he has backed out of this TERRIBLE DEAL, he said in the rose garden when he made the announcement, that he wants to negotiate a NEW BETTER DEAL. One that doesn’t involve the loss of American jobs and taxpayers fitting the bill when other countries like China and India, aren’t willing to take on their fair share of the carbon emissions reduction burden.

He’s not just denying climate change all together.

But if they can’t make a new deal, he’s not losing sleep over it, because America is already doing plenty in the private sector to reduce our carbon footprint and do our part to preserve our environment.

This is exactly what I wanted President Trump to do. This is exactly what we all knew he would do. This is exactly what the American workers voted for him to do.

All Conservatives and Republicans should finally be in agreement on something.

This Paris Climate Accord does not reduce emissions enough to justify the insane amount of money it would cost us. Any benefit we see from implementing the restrictions can not be measured effectively enough to justify the expense either.

This agreement is useless. There are no penalties for not upholding it. This deal was never ratified, and countries are already falling behind on it. The goals set up in the agreement are not attainable, especially if countries are already not taking it seriously enough. If we must have a deal, then let’s make a new one.

Tucker: Trump gets US out of bad deal and left melts down
Published on Jun 1, 2017

President Trump is keeping a promise, undoing 8 years of bad Obama policy and putting American interests first by withdrawing US from Paris Climate Accord – and of course, the left has a meltdown

What is in the Paris climate agreement?

What are the key elements?

  • To keep global temperatures “well below” 2.0C (3.6F) above pre-industrial times and “endeavour to limit” them even more, to 1.5C
  • To limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity to the same levels that trees, soil and oceans can absorb naturally, beginning at some point between 2050 and 2100
  • To review each country’s contribution to cutting emissions every five years so they scale up to the challenge
  • For rich countries to help poorer nations by providing “climate finance” to adapt to climate change and switch to renewable energy.

What about money?

Developing countries say they need financial and technological help to leapfrog fossil fuels and move straight to renewables.

Currently they have been promised US $100b per year by 2020 – not as much as many countries would like.

The agreement requires rich nations to maintain a $100b per year funding pledge beyond 2020, and to use that figure as a “floor” for further support agreed by 2025.

The deal says wealthy countries should continue to provide financial support for poor nations to cope with climate change and encourages other countries to join in on a voluntary basis.

Prof John Shepherd of the National Oceanography Centre, University of Southampton, says the agreement includes some welcome aspirations but few people realise how difficult it will be to achieve the goals.

“Since the only mechanism remains voluntary national caps on emissions, without even any guidance on how stringent those caps would need to be, it is hard to be optimistic that these goals are likely to be achieved.”

____________________

Whether you “buy” the idea of climate change or not, (and there are plenty reasons to question it as well as plenty of reasons to believe in it,) this agreement seems more like a symbolic “cool kids of the world club”, or “one world order,” than any kind of agreement that is going to make substantial results to save the environment.

The pressure to just blindly follow and shell out money without knowing where it’s going is ludicrous. By being a part of this agreement without question is just being a blind sheep, not a leader of the world.

A leader negotiates deals that are fair for the people he/she is representing.

Take a look at the numbers. This agreement says the US should pay $100 billion per year until 2025, then thereafter, continuing with $100 billion per year as “the floor”, or hopefully pay more, to reduce the overall world carbon footprint and stop a 2 degree increase in global warming by 2100. Then if we divided 2 degrees by the approximately 200 countries in the agreement, that’s only .01 degrees per country. Taking into consideration our size and that we account for approximately 12-15% of the world’s carbon footprint, that decrease of .01 degrees multiplied by 15, (for the percentage we are responsible for,) equals .15 degrees, or just round up to .2 degrees. That’s a whole lot of money that we have no idea where it’s going or have any account, just for a .2 degrees decrease over the next century. Especially considering we had an 18% reduction in our carbon footprint between 2000-2015 without the agreement. We are already leading the cause in the war against climate change.

That’s right, our private businesses already are doing their part to combat climate change, because they do care for the environment and they don’t need to be in any “cool kids of the world agreement” to do what’s right, what’s cost effective for them and what’s logical. This way it’s not costing us $100 billion a year for a federal/international mandate. Welcome to conservatism! Less government control is better, ALWAYS.

____________________

On “Special Report” tonight, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt praised the president for his “courageous” decision. -On interview with Fox June 1, 2017. (Pre 1994 levels.)

He added that the U.S. has been a leader on climate change and CO2 reduction – and will continue to do so – so we have nothing to be apologetic about.

“The president did a courageous thing today. He truly put America’s interests first,” Pruitt said. “The president took care of American citizens today.”

____________________

The Paris Climate Accord also demands that America not build any more coal plants immediately, while India won’t need to stop until they receive 2.5 trillion dollars in foreign aid. China wouldn’t have to stop until 2030. (All while OUR “carbon footprint” is back to pre 1994 levels.)

President Trump did the right thing. This was a job killer and would have forced the USA to stifle, while other countries around the globe pummeled us economically.

As “the Alphabet News Networks” and loudest voices on the left have their hissy fit about how unprecedented this is, might I remind them that President Bush did something similar in 2001 and we all lived just fine.

____________________

In 1997, the Clinton administration helped broker the Kyoto Protocol, a similar climate deal that required the nations involved to commit to binding CO2 reduction targets. The U.S. actually signed the treaty, though the Senate refused to ratify it, chiefly because big-polluting developing nations like China and India were given a pass.

Nevertheless, it was hailed as a major step towards combating climate change.

When George W. Bush became president in 2001, he shocked the world by announcing that he was unilaterally withdrawing the United States from the Kyoto Protocol (sound familiar?). He received fierce criticism abroad for failure to lead on climate change.

Per a New York Times article from June 12, 2001:

“Mr. Bush’s outright rejection of the treaty two months ago led to an uproar in Europe…Mr. Bush remained firm in rejecting the 1997 Kyoto accord, noting that it set no standards for major emitters of greenhouse gases, like China and India, while creating mandates for the United States that could prove economically crippling.”

Bush acknowledged global warming as a problem, but preferred for the free market to fight climate change as opposed to relying on artificial government commitments.

He was a few years ahead of his time, but he wasn’t wrong – technological developments in natural gas fracking at the end of the last decade and in this one have, according to one study, reduced carbon emissions in the United States by more than twice as much as what the rest of the world managed to do under the Kyoto Protocol:

David Victor, an energy expert at UC-San Diego, estimates that the shift from coal to natural gas has reduced U.S. emissions by 400 to 500 megatons CO2 per year. To put that number in perspective, it is about twice the total effect of the Kyoto Protocol on carbon emissions in the rest of the world, including the European Union.

The Paris Accord is different than Kyoto, chiefly because it includes developing nations like China and India (though these nations’ reduction “targets” are pretty underwhelming if not negligible). It’s also non-binding, meaning the commitments are voluntary and unenforceable.

Even under the stringent regulatory regime proposed by the Obama administration, the U.S. was unlikely to meet its commitments anyway. Withdrawing from the treaty really doesn’t change much in terms of actual U.S. policy – it’s certainly not akin to “murdering the planet.”

____________________

So like I always tell you, don’t let the fear mongering media make you think this is something way bigger than it is, and get you all upset, because we are polluting the planet at record speeds and we are all going to die.

None of that is happening.

They love to manipulate you like that. I wouldn’t doubt if there has been a spike in people seeing a psychiatrist since the November 2016 election, not because of anything President Trump has done wrong to the country, but because of the anxiety and negativity the “Alphabet News Networks” and Senate Democrats generate in people that don’t have time to do the research to know what is actually happening.

Administrator Scott Pruitt Speech On Paris Accord, As Prepared

June 1, 2017 – Thank you, Mr. President.

Your decision today to exit the Paris Accord reflects your unflinching commitment to put America First. And by exiting, you are fulfilling yet one more campaign promise to the American people.

Please know that I am thankful for your fortitude – courage – and steadfastness as you serve and lead our country.

America finally has a leader who answers only to the people – not the special interests who have had their way for much too long. In everything you do, you are fighting for the forgotten men and women of America. You are the champion for hardworking citizens all across this land who just want a government that puts their needs first.

You have promised to put America First in all aspects of your Administration. And you have done that in any number of ways – from trade – to national security – to protecting our border – to right-sizing government here in Washington, D.C.

And today, you have put America First with regard to international agreements and the environment. This is a historic restoration of American Economic Independence – one that will benefit the working class, the working poor, and working people of all stripes. With this action, you have declared that people are the rulers of this country once again.

It should be noted that we as a nation do it better than anyone in the world in striking the balance between growing jobs and our economy – while also being a good steward of our environment. We owe no apologies to other nations for our environmental stewardship.

After all – before the Paris Accord was ever signed – America had reduced its CO2 footprint to levels of the early 1990s. In fact – between the years 2000 and 2014, the United States reduced its carbon emissions by more than 18 percent and this was accomplished largely by American innovation and technology from the private sector rather than government mandate.

For that reason – you have corrected a view that was paramount in Paris – that somehow the United States should penalize its economy – be apologetic – lead with our chin – while the rest of the world does little. Other nations talk a good game – We lead with action – not words.

Our efforts should be on exporting our technology and innovation to nations who seek to reduce their CO2 footprint – to learn from us. That should be our focus versus agreeing to unachievable targets that harm our economy and the American people.

Mr. President – it takes courage and commitment to say no to the plaudits of men while doing what’s right by the American people.

You have that courage –

And the American people can take comfort because you have their back.

Sen. Cruz Issues Statement Following President Trump’s Announcement Regarding the Paris Climate Agreement

“I commend President Trump for putting American jobs first. This is great news for the Texas economy and for hardworking Americans all across our country. This is great news for family budgets, which under the Obama Paris plan would have seen significant increases in costs for utilities and nearly everything powered by fossil fuels, which accounts for 82 percent of all the energy generated in the United States. The Paris agreement would have destroyed $3 trillion in American GDP and killed 6.5 million industrial sector jobs by 2040, while even EPA’s own models conclude that it will have a negligible impact on global temperatures. And, it gave Russia and China and India a free pass, while hammering American jobs. I look forward continuing to work closely with the administration throughout the withdrawal process, and my number-one priority will continue to be fighting for Texans to advance policies that create jobs, grow the economy, and protect family budgets.”

Trump’s First 100 Days

After wading waste high thru all the crap articles and fake news, this is a very accurate list of the Trump Administration Accomplishments in the First 100 Days

I put my waist high crap waders on to give to you President Trump’s First 100 Days. 

1st100days

It surely hasn’t been uneventful. 

If you listen to the mainstream media (MSM) you will hear something like this:
Donald Trump’s presidency is the ‘most failed first 100 days ever’, says US historian
MARCH 22, 2017

I’m not even going to quote this article, because it’s fake news, click bait and this is why; President Trump’s 100th day in office was Saturday April 29, 2017. This article was written on MARCH 22, 2017, which was day 62. How do you judge the first 100 days of an administration with another month to go? So yeah, it’s Fake News! There were countless articles like this to wade through. A bunch of crap.

I think the above article blames the Trump Administration’s alleged failure on the Russian investigation, which still has no substance after almost a year. (If you don’t believe that, you can see my previous blog on that subject. It was just updated May 2, 2017, with the most recent revelations, and still no evidence that President Trump was or is in collusion with Russia.)

Hopefully, once The House Intelligence Committee starts bringing witnesses in this week for closed testimonies, it will shed more light on that whole debacle and we can eventually just lay that conspiracy theory to rest. (Maybe then, Rachel Maddow will finally start reporting some REAL news,… one can only hope.)

But really, can we at least give this sitting president a full 100 days before we start grading? Or doesn’t it matter, because the grade is the same no matter what he has done?

Trump’s First 100 Days of the Presidency was doomed to get a negative grade by the MSM (mainstream media), regardless. They all just ignore anything good that he’s done or spin and twist the good things into negative speculations, even blatant lies that result in fake news and fear mongering the American public. I hear this a lot, that “Trump will start WWIII” even though these tensions were here far before Trump even started his campaign.

President Trump is being criticized for not having any of his major permanent legislation passed that he promised over the campaign, like Health reform, and Tax reform. Which is being resisted by democrats and even some republicans. Not only that, these are complicated legislation that historically have taken a lot longer than 100 days to pass by other administrations.

He’s being criticized for not being able to implement his Travel Pause Executive Order, because it was blocked by the 9th Circuit Court, as well as his Sanctuary Cities Executive Order. The blocks are unconstitutional and the executive orders are clearly well in the power of the President of the United States to hold, but that’s a blog for another day. (Actually I have blogged about the Travel Pause, twice.)

I find this so ironic that President Trump is being criticized for not being able to exercise his power as the leader of the country, because he’s been compared to Hitler, so many times that it’s completely ridiculous.

So what is it? Is he the most horrible evil dictator to ever take a breath and set foot on the earth? Or is he a weak inferior man who can’t even enforce a simple law that has been on the books for decades?

Neither.

He’s just a man. A man who is trying to serve his country the best way he can. Which it’s now taking a lot longer to do the things he’s been planning, that he has promised and needs to do. It’s a lot harder than he thought it would be, because of the unprecedented push back that he’s getting from the obstructionist lefties and even some of the bull headed Republicans.

President Trump is also being labeled a flip-flopper, because he’s able to assess a situation, listen to all of the sides/opinions, weigh the pros and cons, then do the necessary steps to work things out in our country’s favor.

For example, we now have probably the best relationship with China that we’ve had in decades, maybe even ever, because our leader took the time to talk things out with their leader and join forces against a common enemy. If you followed Trump on the campaign trail this was a big surprise. Now we are using China as an ally in a very sticky situation against North Korea, because it’s in both our countries best interest. We are also making better trade deals with them. Our products will have a better shot at being sold in China, without being double taxed, because our President is negotiating better deals.

This video makes me giggle. President Trump says China, over and over again.

Donald Trump says the word China over and over.

President Trump has changed his mind on many other things, however now he has so much more information than he did when on the campaign trail. He has national security clearance that provides a completely different perspective for him. As well as countless advisors and people he trusts to mull over current situations, outcomes and possible solutions. If he’s able to take the new information, make an informed decision to change his mind on an issue, then I trust his judgement. He knows much more than you or I know about any national security situation, and if he’s changing his mind about certain issues, he must have good reasons.

Democrats and liberals should be ecstatic about this. HE’S ABLE TO CHANGE HIS MIND! That means he’s a REASONABLE HUMAN BEING!

Oh, but then that would mean admitting to being wrong about him.

We can’t have any of that, now can we?

If you only have the time to watch your local nightly alphabet news, or read the news on social media, you probably have a very negative and frustrated view of the Trump Administration’s first 100 days. You probably think money has been spent willy-nilly, no actual work has been done, important regulations have been repealed and no one in the country even likes President Trump. That’s exactly what the radical progressives want you to think.

The progressive leftists, or I call them regressives, want President Trump to fail. They do not care about the fact that if the Trump Administration fails that means the rest of us go down with the ship. Their only objective is to prove that they were right about him all along. They do not care that by being right, that would mean you and I, the American people would be the ones to really lose and suffer.

President Trump has been doing everything that he can to get his agenda done, and fulfilling the promises that he made on the campaign trail; with little help from congress, and no help from the mainstream media or Liberal District Court Judges. There has been so many distractions that have completely sucked all the life and attention away from anything positive that has been happening. Much of this was by design from ‘the resistance’. I guess, we can blame a little, on Twitter rants, but a rant is usually provoked. If you are constantly under fire, you may deserve a pass for some of your negative reactions. Just saying.

(But I’m not really a big fan of the Twitter rants either.)

According to Fox News, the official tally as, Friday April 28, 2017 at day 99, President Trump made 55 promises of actions he would take in his first 100 days: 18 are completed, 11 in progress, and 26 have so far failed. However, I wouldn’t completely count the allegedly failed ones out. He’s had so much resistance from Senate/House Democrats and even some Senate/House Republicans. That resistance is to purposely sabotage him in the eyes of the American people.

Some of these promises that have allegedly failed may have just been reconsidered and renegotiated. This should thrill Democrats! This means President Trump flipped his stance to their side. But have you heard how any of the Democrats are thrilled?….. Me either.

I see a President that is TRYING to keep all of his promises, even if they aren’t happening as fast as he’d hoped and that speaks volumes to me. Even if I don’t always agree with his agenda.

100 Days Of Trump – Grading Pres Trump Democrat Weigh In

WHAT HAS PRESIDENT TRUMP ACCOMPLISHED SO FAR?

Here is the “short list” for quick reference:

 

  • Illegal border crossings are down more than they have been in 17 years

 

The Promises Trump Would Like to Have Already Kept, But Will Soon Enough

These are the main promises that WILL be kept, but are in progress or in line for the next 100 days:

  • Tax Reform– one of the largest tax cuts for businesses and individuals, including the middle class in American history (legislation this complex is not usually historically passed in only 100 Days)
  • Health Care Reform– (also not usually historically passed in only first 100 days)

More In Depth List of Trump Administration Accomplishments:

(With reference links. Some things you may not agree with, however there are many good things, that should have bipartisan support. There has been many campaign promises kept. You need to hear this point of view, because you’ve been fed way too much negativity since November 9, 2016.)

  • Supreme Court Nomination: Justice Neil Gorsuch confirmed, an Originalist and perfect replacement for the late great Justice Antonin Scalia – This assures that our constitution is upheld without distortion of radical liberal progressivism. (The last time there was a Supreme Court Justice confirmed within a President’s first 100 days was over 130 years ago) Campaign Promise √

Justice Gorsuch had unanimous bipartisan support when he was approved by the senate to the Court of Appeals just a decade ago. All of the resisting you saw from democrats just proves my point that they only want to see President Trump fail. The only reason I can think of as to why, is that they want to be right about him. There are still many senate democrats currently serving that were part of that unanimous vote, including Chuck Schumer. (Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden were also part of that vote in favor of Judge Gorsuch)

 

 

  • Illegal border crossings are down more than they have been in 17 years Campaign Promise √
  • Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements – Increased border security to reduce human-trafficking and drug smuggling Campaign Promise √

Trump promised American steel would be used in the construction — a claim the White House had to walk back in late March, explaining it would apply to future construction.

President Trump’s 100 Days of Accountability

“Our moral duty to the taxpayer requires us to make our Government leaner and more accountable.”

– President Donald J. Trump

A GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: For too long the Washington swamp worked to serve itself, but President Donald J. Trump is reforming the Government to serve the American people.

President Trump implemented tough ethical standards to ensure his Administration works for the American people and not itself.

President Trump introduced tough new lobbying standards for political appointees, including a five-year ban on lobbying and a lifetime ban on lobbying for foreign countries.

President Trump donated his first quarter salary to the National Park Service, following through on his promise to the American people.

President Trump is keeping his promise to the American people to reform the Government to better address their needs. President Trump:

Implemented a temporary Federal hiring freeze to prevent taxpayer dollars from financing unnecessary bureaucracy.

Directed his Administration to create a comprehensive plan to reorganize the executive branch.

Required executive branch agencies to eliminate two regulations for every one they issue.

Created the Office of American Innovation to streamline and improve Government for future generations.

President Trump’s budget blueprint takes a sober look at how to responsibly spend taxpayer dollars and seeks to streamline government.

President Trump proposed the largest cut to non-defense spending since the Reagan Administration.

President Trump fulfilled his promise to the American people by nominating and, after Senate confirmation, appointing Neil Gorsuch as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

ADDRESS THE NEEDS OF ALL AMERICANS: President Trump has taken action to help marginalized communities past administrations have neglected.

After years of scandal and failing healthcare, President Trump has taken action to expand access to care for America’s veterans.

For the first time, accurate and up-to-date wait times and quality-of-care information is easily available online.

Under President Trump, authorized appointments for veterans outside of VA facilities have increased by 42 percent.

The President signed an extension of the Veterans Choice Program, giving eligible veterans the option of seeking care from private physicians.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has expanded emergent mental health care access to an estimated 500,000 former service members with Other than Honorable (OTH) discharges.

President Trump created a commission and focused grants to tackle the opioid epidemic that has increasingly plagued our country.

President Trump took action to prioritize Historically Black Colleges and Universities, after these critical institutions were marginalized in the previous administration.

Under President Trump’s leadership, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has gone on a national listening tour, promoting accountability at HUD field offices to the citizens they serve.

Under President Trump and Secretary DeVos’s leadership, the Administration has rolled back harmful regulations to ensure America’s schools are helping students.

A FOREIGN POLICY THAT PROMOTED ACCOUNTABILITY FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: President Trump’s America First foreign policy restores the voice of the American people in world affairs.

President Trump is holding the U.N. accountable by calling out false and defamatory anti-Israel bias and forcing it to confront threats to the world’s security. At the U.N., the United States is:

Removing a blatantly biased report against Israel.

Condemning Russia’s support for the Assad regime and continued failure to live up to its commitment to end the conflict in eastern Ukraine.

Challenging Iran’s launch of ballistic missiles.

President Trump is supporting our allies across the world, while making sure everyone is accountable to international obligations. The United States is:

Working with NATO members to boost their defense spending to meet their commitments.

Supported Montenegro joining the NATO alliance.

President Trump re-negotiated the F-35 fighter jet agreement, saving more than $700 million in taxpayer money while improving America’s national security.

A PROMISE TO HOLD THE GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE: President Trump promised that he would drain the Washington swamp and restore accountability to Government.

President Trump: “Our moral duty to the taxpayer requires us to make our Government leaner and more accountable.”

President Trump: “There is duplication and redundancy everywhere. Billions and billions of dollars are being wasted on activities that are not delivering results for hardworking American taxpayers.”

‘Optimism’ and ‘Fake News’: Ohio Town Hall Grades Trump’s First 100 Days

April 25, 2017 [Video]

Martha MacCallum moderated a town hall event at Stolle Machinery, a manufacturing plant in North Canton, Ohio on “The First 100 Days.”

Many of the attendees said they felt that Trump is thus far keeping his promise to look out for the working people of America and improve the economy.

An executive at the plant, Michael Raderchak, said Trump brought optimism to an area of the country that has seen a lot in the way of economic downturn. He praised Trump for moving manufacturing back to America and Ohio specifically. “For the past eight years, we didn’t see that,” he said.

Tamie Lindamood, an employee at Stolle, echoed Raderchak, saying she also is optimistic that Trump will help the economy in the area. Lindamood said she was laid off three times during the Obama administration and witnessed friends lose their homes. “It’s stifling to be from Ohio and see [Trump] come in with so much optimism,” she said.

Stolle employee Steve Schutt said he too was encouraged with the Trump administration’s actions on trade and the economy.

Another attendee said Trump well understands the “working man” and is realizing how to prioritize his national security issues with domestic policies:

Former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-Ohio) said Trump “talks better than he acts,” but added that he is pleased with some of what the president has accomplished.

A student at the University of Akron told MacCallum that he too is concerned with President Trump. Christian Howse said Trump’s foreign policy and acts of war show too many parallels to President Bush engaging America in the early days of the War on Terror.

Later, another man instead blamed the media for the negative talk about Trump, saying he did not trust the approval polls and that many press outlets are engaging in “fake news.”

Eight other pipelines currently run below Lake Oahe. In fact, existing pipelines have safely transported natural gas beneath Lake Oahe for more than 30 years.

The builders of the Dakota Access pipeline adhered to all federal, state, and local laws and regulations

Most of the protesters at the Dakota Access Pipeline are not Standing Rock Sioux.
The vast majority of the opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline – and the most vocal – comes not from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, but from several radical, well-funded groups that are opposed to all use of fossil fuel and who ignore the safety of the pipeline in order to further their membership and fundraising efforts.

55 tribes held over 389 meetings while the DAPL route was planned.

No Native American artifacts were disturbed during construction.

The source of water for the Standing Rock Sioux is not near the Dakota Access Pipeline
At no point does the Dakota Access Pipeline pass through the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, nor does it impact the Tribe’s water supply. The water inlet for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe will be 70 miles away by early 2017, when the tribe’s water intake moves to South Dakota.

I can’t stand it anymore. MSM has gone completely nuts and if you aren’t watching the news 24/7 and entire un-edited testimonies, entire un-edited press conferences or entire un-edited interviews, you may not have gotten the memo yet. Brace yourself, because if you watch CNN this is going to come as a huge surprise to you….

THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF COLLUSION BETWEEN THE TRUMP TEAM AND RUSSIA.

Not only is there no evidence of collusion, but this investigation has been happening since at least July of 2016, and nothing has been found. If you don’t believe me, then you are welcome to watch the collection of videos that I have included for your viewing pleasure.

(To my knowledge as of May 2, 2017 there is still no evidence that the Trump Team colluded with Russia.)

Published on Mar 22, 2017

The top House Intelligence Committee Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) dropped a bombshell on Donald Trump by saying there’s more than circumstantial evidence against Trump for Russia collusion.

And yes he lied, because everywhere else I’m hearing no collusion with Russia. The new evidence that Devin Nunes found, he stated had nothing to do with Russia. At the time Mr. Schiff did the above interview he had not seen any new evidence to suggest a new conclusion. This was just grandstanding, and a blatant lie to further the Russian collusion narrative.

He has backpedeled since.

Rep. Adam Schiff: Too early to say Trump campaign colluded with RussiaApril 2, 2017

Democrat Adam Schiff Admits No Evidence of Trump-Russia Collusion April 2, 2017

Rep. Adam Schiff says it’s premature to conclude that members of the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to interfere in the general election.

Asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper whether he can “say definitively that there was collusion” between members of the campaign and Moscow to meddle in the presidential race, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said it’s too early to tell.

“We can say, conclusively, this is something that needs to be thoroughly investigated,” Mr. Schiff said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “But it’s way premature to be reaching conclusions.”

“We are still at the very early stage of the investigation,” he said. “The only thing I can say is that it would be irresponsible for us not to get to the bottom of this.”

The California Democrat previously said he had seen “more than circumstantial evidence” to suggest members of the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia to interfere in the presidential race.

“I can tell you that the case is more than that,” Mr. Schiff said last month on “State of the Union.” “And I can’t go into the particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now.”

At that time, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, California Republican, said he wasn’t aware of the evidence cited by Mr. Schiff.

Devin Nunes on Surveillance and Russia

Personal Story

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee joins ‘The O’Reilly Factor’ to discuss surveillance claims surrounding President Trump – Evidence that had NOTHING TO DO WITH RUSSIA

(But had everything to do with surveillance of the Trump Team. There is also no reason for Devin Nunes to recuse himself from the investigation because he’s done nothing wrong.)

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/03/27/nunes-on-meeting-source-on-white-house-grounds-there-was-no-sneaking-around.html

The chairman of the House intelligence committee told Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday that “there was no sneaking around” when he met with the secret source behind his claim that President Trump’s associates were caught up in “incidental” surveillance.

“We go to the executive branch at least once or twice a week,” Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told host Bill O’Reilly. “This is not unusual, because there are intelligence products that we don’t have access to in the House of Representatives, although we do have the clearances to see them.

“So, we’ve known about this long before Trump actually sent his famous tweet out about the ‘wiretapping’ at Trump Tower,” Nunes went on. “We’ve known that there was additional unmasking of Americans’ names. We’ve had sources that have provided that information. And so, what I had to do was that I needed a place that I could actually go and find this information and review it.”

The chairman said he did not go to the West Wing or speak to Trump on the day he met his source, and re-emphasized that the information he reviewed “had nothing to do with Russia. That’s the key here.”

Nunes’ confirmation that he met with the source on the White House grounds prompted Democrats to call for him to recuse himself from the committee’s ongoing investigation into possible ties between Russian officials and members of Trump’s campaign.

Backed by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., Nunes struck a defiant tone, telling O’Reilly, “I’m sure the Democrats do want me to quit, because they know that I’m quite effective at getting to the bottom of things.”
