BRETT KAVANAUGH CONFIRMED, POSSIBLY MOST CONSERVATIVE SUPREME COURT SINCE 1934.
October 6, 2018 by Ken Klukowski
WASHINGTON, DC – Brett Kavanaugh became the 114th justice to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday, when the Senate confirmed him by a vote of 50-48, handing President Trump and Republicans a historic victory that shifts the balance of power on the Court.
The vote came in the middle of the afternoon on Saturday, less than 30 hours after the Senate invoked cloture late Friday morning to end an attempted filibuster by Senate Democrats and one Republican, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). Senators invoked cloture by a vote of of 51-49, thanks to the “nuclear option” first engineered by Democrats under former Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) in 2013, lowering the threshold from 60 to 51 for presidential nominations.
Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) was in his home state during the final vote, walking his daughter down the aisle at her wedding. Daines was willing to take a private jet immediately back to Washington if necessary to cast the deciding vote, but Murkowski – the only Republican to oppose Kavanaugh – agreed to vote “Present” instead of “No” on the final vote, to neutralize the effect of Daines’ absence and keep the two-vote margin for Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
Watch the Senate Vote:
President Trump sees appointing conservative Supreme Court justices as one of the reasons he was elected. Polling showed that in the 2016 election, 48 percent of voters said the Supreme Court was a major factor in their presidential vote, and 21 percent of voters said it was their top issue. Those voters chose Trump over Hillary Clinton by a margin of 57 to 41.
Saturday’s confirmation marks more than the dramatic conclusion to a political battle that has waged for more than three months, and instead could mark an inflection point in a philosophical war that has raged for decades.
The Supreme Court has not had a conservative majority since 1934, when the New Deal took hold and the Court moved to the left, giving the federal government vast new powers over economic issues. The Court massive broadened federal powers over commerce, taxing, and federal spending.
A conservative majority on the Court has been considered within striking distance since 1993, when two moderate justices were the swing votes on almost every issue that divided along philosophical lines. In 2006, conservative Justice Samuel Alito replaced one of those moderates, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.
Since then, the Supreme Court has long been divided with four conservative justices to one degree or another, and four liberal justices on the other. The crucial fifth vote was the sole remaining moderate, Justice Anthony Kennedy.
When Kennedy announced on June 27 that he would retire during the summer, both political parties – and especially their respective bases – leapt into action with the most expensive, most brutal Supreme Court confirmation in American history. Both sides understood that issues of overwhelming importance both to conservatives and to liberals could be at stake.
Talking heads quickly zoned in on Trump’s “List” of 25 potential justices. A week later, President Trump had narrowed it to four finalists: Judges Thomas Hardiman, Amy Barrett, Raymond Kethledge, and Brett Kavanaugh.
On July 9, President Trump announced during a primetime address from the East Room of the White House that he was nominating Judge Kavanaugh, who has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 2006.
The political Left went into immediate meltdown, with raucous protests outside the U.S. Supreme Court. Alternate protest posters left on the ground included the names of the other three finalists as well, showing that liberals would have had a fit for any nominee President Trump might choose.
Experts from both sides dived deeply into Kavanaugh’s lengthy paper trail. He has authored an impressive 307 published opinions during his 12 years on the bench, totaling over 6,000 pages of judicial writing. When combined with the opinions he joined written by his colleagues, senators had over 11,000 pages of judicial decisions to examine in assessing Kavanaugh’s fitness for the High Court.
Beyond that, Kavanaugh submitted over 112 pages of answers to questions from senators, and included 17,000 pages of attachments. When combined with the records released from his public service over the past quarter-century, senators were flooded with a staggering 483,000 pages of material to review on Kavanaugh – more than the past five Supreme Court nominees combined – setting an all-time record.
Kavanaugh’s hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee during the first week of September were heavy-hitting and constantly interrupted by protests, but he weathered the storm and appeared to be on a glide path to confirmation.
All that changed during the second half of September, when accusers brought forth sordid and salacious accusations of a sexual nature, which had never come up during Kavanaugh’s long service or the six FBI background investigations throughout his career.
A final curveball came in the form of Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who said he would require a final FBI background check into these allegations before voting for the judge on the Senate floor. Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) acquiesced, in light of their razor-thin margin in the Senate.
The FBI came back saying that they found no corroboration for the accusations. Flake and several other moderate senators then announced their support for Kavanaugh, including Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) who gave an impassioned speech about the presumption of innocence and due process.
Collins’ speech highlighted how toxic judicial confirmation fights have been over the past couple years, deepening the divides in the nation. Experts worry that many of the most qualified candidates for high office – and especially the Supreme Court – will not answer the call to serve since it means lasting trauma for their families and reputations.
Regardless of all that, at age 53 Justice Kavanaugh now takes his seat as the newest associate justice on the Supreme Court, and is expected to serve for decades. Major cases already pending before the Court could reveal very quickly whether he is what conservatives have been waiting for these many years.
Justice Kavanaugh will begin hearing cases on Tuesday, October 9.
THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA FRAUD.
October 6, 2018
by Steve McCann
The conjoined Democratic Party and mainstream media’s despicable character assassination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh combined with the two-year single-minded determination to destroy the Trump presidency by any means possible has irretrievably awakened a preponderance of the citizenry. In a recent poll, 70% of all Americans and 90% of Republicans have lost faith in the self-styled mainstream media. They are imploding due to the self-inflicted destruction of their credibility and integrity, which has exposed the fraud this cabal has carried out over the past 85 years. The damage done to this nation and its citizenry is incalculable.
There have many frauds perpetrated on the American people. Perhaps the most notable, and consequential, was the media persuading an overwhelming majority of citizens that journalism is not only a noble profession, but one that always strived to be fair and balanced. Journalism, in this or any nation, has never been fair and balanced. Nor has it been afforded the exalted status of a profession, as the definition of a profession is an occupation that involves prolonged training and formal qualifications. Journalism encompasses neither.
Prior to the 1930s, there was no pretext of fairness, as the reporters of the day worked for newspapers that openly and unabashedly advocated for a political party or an ideology while reporting minimal national news via telegraph and wire services (after 1848).
Newspapers were the primary and sole source of news for 150 years after the nation’s founding. In 1926, the first national radio network was established, known as NBC, or the National Broadcasting Company. By 1934, two additional networks had begun airing news and entertainment to an ever growing national audience.
Thus, the citizenry began to increasingly rely on the news as aired on radio. In 1925, less than 19% of all homes had a radio; by 1941, that number had increased to 75%. This growth prompted the passage of the Communications Act of 1934, which created the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), thus placing de facto control of the electronic media under the federal government and greatly limiting competition. Three networks essentially had a national monopoly on the dissemination of news broadcast over the airwaves in the 1930s and ’40s.
It was then when the issue of fair and balanced reporting began to be bandied about and the so-called journalists in the broadcast media found it necessary to initiate the mantra that their “profession” was the epitome of credibility and integrity. All the while, nearly all, together with their cohorts in the print media, were unabashedly and stealthily promoting Franklin Roosevelt and the bulk of his big-government policies – marking the beginning of the cozy relationship between the media and the Democratic Party that exists to this day.
By the late 1950s, television assumed the role of being the dominant source of news for Americans. In 1960, nearly 90% of all homes had at least one television. However, the same three networks that controlled news on the radio also monopolized the dissemination of news on television. As an unintended consequence of this market hegemony and the near instantaneous and graphic nature of news reporting on television, newspapers began an inexorable and precipitous decline – thus relegating the major-market, and more liberal, papers to essentially being an arms-length partner and the investigative arm of the electronic media.
Many television reporters and anchors assumed celebrity status, as they were in the homes of Americans on a daily basis. As such, their credibility was rarely if ever questioned. The term “mainstream media” began to be used by the television networks and their allies in the print media to further enhance their image of impartiality and believability.
While there were a few news anchors and reporters who tried to be impartial, the majority were not. Walter Cronkite was portrayed and feted as “The Most Trusted Man in America.” Yet he almost single-handedly, along with his cadre of reporters, convinced the populace that a significant victory by the American Army in Vietnam, the Tet Offensive, was an overwhelming defeat and embarrassment, thus denigrating the valor of the soldiers and turning public opinion against them. Across the spectrum, his reporting, abetted by what stories the network chose not to cover, skewed significantly toward the Democrats and liberalism. This approach to presenting the news was essentially the same on all three networks and replicated by their collaborators in the print media.
On a national basis, the American people, unable to receive any alternative broadcast media until the mid-1990s, were gulled into believing that journalism and the media did indeed strive to be fair and balanced. This was an ideal scenario to dramatically assist the left in the indoctrination of the citizenry into slowly but surely accepting liberal orthodoxy – a tactic that has, for the most part, succeeded.
Despite the proliferation of talk radio, Fox News, and the internet in the 1990s and early 2000s, the mindset of unquestioningly accepting the image the mainstream media promoted still prevailed among far too many, allowing the denizens of the dominant media continued believability and access to virtually every American home.
Therefore, the preponderance of the current generation of so-called mainstream journalists, more ill educated and steeped in left-wing ideology than their predecessors, had a platform to unabashedly promote leftist social and economic policies. Also, unlike their predecessors, they no longer attempted to hide or obfuscate their agenda or bias, as the goal of transforming America was within reach – until the election of 2016, a catastrophic event that precipitated a renewed determination by the American left to obliterate conservative and Republican opposition by any means possible. The mainstream media would be the spear-carriers in that effort.
In their anger and retaliation, far too many mainstream reporters, editors, anchors, and columnists exhibit an inability to generate an original thought or comprehend basic concepts, hence fabrications, innuendo, and “fake news” are the hallmark of the mainstream media today. Further, they are much more impatient than those who preceded them – thus, the herd mentality in the despicable reporting on Judge Kavanaugh, the distorted coverage of Donald Trump, and the determination to foment tribalism and resentment.
These overt actions are why Americans, as polling reveals, have become increasingly suspicious of the mainstream media and are searching for alternative sources of news. The current state of anxiety and bitterness throughout the nation can be laid primarily at the feet of the media as they took advantage of their monopoly of the electronic platform available to them to promote and give cover to the left while proactively and falsely declaring their objectivity and integrity – thus perpetrating the greatest fraud in American history.

PROSECUTOR’S SENATE REPORT OUTLINES 9 REASONS WHY CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD NOT CREDIBLE.
October 2, 2018 by John Nolte
Rachel Mitchell, the veteran sex crimes prosecutor chosen by Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to question Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh, has filed a report that points out Ford’s inconsistencies and apparent deceptions.
“In the legal context, here is my bottom line,” she writes. “A ‘he said, she said’ case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that. I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence.”
She adds, “Nor do I believe that this evidence is sufficient to satisfy the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard.” This means Ford’s story does not reach the 50-50 level of being more likely to have occurred than not.

Mitchell Memo by on Scribd
On Sunday, Breitbart News published an extensive list of Ford’s inconsistencies, including the fact she told the Committee she is afraid to fly when the truth is that she flies frequently for both business and pleasure. Mitchell’s report is even more comprehensive, with nine different general objections (marked with underlined text) substantiated by dozens of contradicting claims and unanswered questions.
Ford’s deviations in her timeline about when the assault occurred are important. Did the event occur in the “mid-eighties” or “early-eighties,” was she in her “early teens” or “late teens,” and why did she cross out the “early” in “early 80s” in the statement for her polygraph report?
Mitchell lays it all out:...(Read More...)
POMPEO TO MEET WITH KIM JONG UN ON SUNDAY, STATE DEPARTMENT ANNOUNCES.
October 2, 2018 by Samuel Chamberlain | Fox News
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang on Sunday as part of his trip to Asia beginning later this week, the State Department announced Tuesday.
Pompeo also will visit Japan, South Korea and China as part of his trip, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert announced. It will be Pompeo’s fourth visit to North Korea.
Pompeo is expected to attempt to set up a second summit between Kim and President Trump, who previously met face-to-face in Singapore this past June and issued a vague statement pledging to remove nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula.
Since then, negotiations over when and how denuclearization would occur have been rocky, with with neither side able to agree on a starting point and widespread skepticism in the United States over whether Pyongyang is serious about renouncing an arsenal it sees as the only way to guarantee its safety.
Hopes for progress in the talks got a boost last month when South Korean President Moon Jae In met with Kim in Pyongyang for their third summit.
The summit resulted in a joint statement in which North Korea expressed willingness for a “permanent” dismantling of its main nuclear facility in Nyongbyon — if the United States takes corresponding measures — and the dismantling of a missile engine test site and launch pad in northwestern North Korea.
Earlier Tuesday, North Korea’s official propaganda ministry accused the U.S. of “trying to subdue” it through sanctions, indicating that the Kim regime could see lifting such sanctions as a key bargaining chip in any talks over the future of North Korea’s nuclear program. Pompeo has been a vocal advocate of maintaining maximum pressure and sanctions on North Korea until it has made clear and significant moves to denuclearize.
In a speech at the United Nations last week, North Korea’s foreign minister claimed North Korea is ready to implement the agreements Trump and Kim made at the Singapore summit, but also accused Washington of failing to demonstrate its willingness to ease tensions and build mutual trust.
“Without any trust in the U.S., there will be no confidence in our national security,” Ri Yong Ho said, “and under such circumstances there is no way we will unilaterally disarm ourselves first.”

TRUMP RIPS CONGRESS OVER ‘RIDICULOUS’ SPENDING BILL: ‘WHERE IS THE MONEY FOR THE WALL?’
September 20, 2018 by Joseph Curl
President Trump went on a furious tirade on Thursday as he slammed Congress’s “ridiculous” spending bill, deriding the lack of money for his campaign-promised southern border wall.
“I want to know, where is the money for Border Security and the WALL in this ridiculous Spending Bill, and where will it come from after the Midterms?” Trump said in a post on Twitter. “Dems are obstructing Law Enforcement and Border Security. REPUBLICANS MUST FINALLY GET TOUGH!”
Trump also quoted Sen. David Perdue, Georgia Republican.
“’We can’t secure the Border because of the Democrats historic level of Obstruction. The Presidents fed up with this. His agenda is working. The economy is growing at twice the rate it did under Obama. We’ve nominated and confirmed 68 Federal Judges, 26 Court of Appeals Judges…'” he wrote on Twitter.
“‘….The thing that’s lacking is we can’t properly secure the Border because of the Democrats historic level of Obstruction.’ Senator David Perdue of Georgia.”
On Thursday, the Senate voted 93-7 to pass an $854 billion spending bill that funds departments of Defense, Health and Human Services (HHS) and Labor and Education. Six were Republicans and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) voted against the bill.
The House is set to consider the bill next week in order to beat a September 30 deadline.
In July, Trump reiterated his threat to shut down the federal government this fall if Congress failed to deliver on funding for the wall and additional border security.
“If we don’t get border security after many, many years of talk within the United States, I would have no problem doing a shutdown,” Trump said. “We’re the laughingstock of the world. … We have the worst immigration laws anywhere in the world,” he added.

US WEEKLY JOBLESS CLAIMS DROP TO NEAR 49-YEAR LOW.
September 20, 2018 by CNBC

The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week.
Claims hit their lowest level in nearly 49 years and pointed to robust labor market conditions.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits slipped 1,000 to a seasonally adjusted 204,000 for the week ended Sept. 8, the lowest level since December 1969, the Labor Department said on Thursday.
The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits unexpectedly fell last week, hitting its lowest level in nearly 49 years and pointing to robust labor market conditions.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits slipped 1,000 to a seasonally adjusted 204,000 for the week ended Sept. 8, the lowest level since December 1969, the Labor Department said on Thursday. Data for the prior week was revised to show 2,000 more applications received than previously reported.
Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims rising to 210,000 in the latest week. The claims data covered last Monday’s Labor Day holiday. Claims tend to be volatile around public holidays.
The Labor Department said only claims for Maine were estimated last week. The four-week moving average of initial claims, considered a better measure of labor market trends as it irons out week-to-week volatility, fell 2,000 last week to 208,000, also the lowest level since December 1969.
The labor market is viewed as being near or at full employment. It continues to strengthen, with nonfarm payrolls increasing by 201,000 jobs in August and annual wage growth notching its biggest gain in more than nine years. Job openings hit an all-time high of 6.9 million in July.
Jobless claims fell, despite ongoing trade tensions.
The Federal Reserve’s Beige Book report, which was published on Wednesday, described the labor market as “tight throughout the country, with most districts reporting widespread shortages.”
Though there have been reports of some companies either planning job cuts or laying off workers because of trade tensions between the United States and its major trade partners, they have been partially offset by increased hiring in the steel industry.
Economists, however, warn of widespread job losses if the Trump administration presses ahead with tariffs on nearly all Chinese imports. President Donald Trump last week threatened duties on another $267 billion worth of Chinese goods on top of a $200 billion tariff list that is awaiting his decision.
Washington has already slapped duties on $50 billion worth of Chinese imports, provoking retaliation from Beijing. The United States has also engaged in tit-for-tat tariffs with other trade partners, including the European Union, Canada and Mexico.
Thursday’s claims report also showed the number of people receiving benefits after an initial week of aid dropped 15,000 to 1.70 million for the week ended Sept. 1, the lowest level since December 1973. The four-week moving average of the so-called continuing claims decreased 8,250 to 1.71 million, the lowest level since November 1973.
FAR LEFT GROUP SPENDING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO FIGHT KAVANAUGH CONFIRMATION RUN BY FORMER FEINSTEIN AIDE.
September 18, 2018 by Cristina Laila
Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Senator Dianne Feinstein
Far left group ‘Demand Justice’ has spent millions of dollars to derail the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
Shortly after Justice Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, twice-failed presidential hopeful, Crooked Hillary wasted no time and immediately got to work fighting Trump’s next SCOTUS nominee.
In June, Hillary promoted a radical left-wing organization called ‘Demand Justice’ as a new group her pac, Onward Together would be teaming up with to fight President Trump’s SCOTUS pick.
Demand Justice was formed in 2017 with an agenda to fight President Trump’s court picks and is run by Feinstein’s former aide Paige Herwig.
Herwig previously worked with Feinstein to keep Loretta Lynch from testifying–now she’s working to prevent Kavanaugh from being confirmed to the Supreme Court.
Senate Democrats received a letter from far left activist Christine Ford earlier this summer alleging Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party–the letter was given to the Democrats around the same time Hillary promoted ‘Demand Justice,’ the left-wing group run by Feinstein’s former aide.
On Monday, Judge Kavanaugh told Senator Hatch that he was not even at the party in question!
Furthermore, the only other witness to the alleged attack said it never happened and the allegations are “absolutely nuts.”
Dianne Feinstein continued to obstruct the confirmation process Monday and refused to join Senate Judiciary Chairman Grassley for a call with Christine Ford.

REPORT: ACTIVISTS DISRUPTING KAVANAUGH HEARINGS ARE FUNDED BY SOROS, DEMOCRATIC DONORS.
September 18, 2018 by Hank Berrien
Left-wing groups that disrupted the confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh have admitted that they were funded by George Soros and other major Democratic donors, according to an exclusive report from The Daily Caller.
The Women’s March, the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD) and Housing Works organizations apparently scheduled the disruptions; The Daily Caller wrote, “The cash from the donor-funded groups goes toward the protesters’ post-and-forfeit payments — a small cash sum paid to resolve low-level misdemeanor crimes and avoid jail time.”
The Daily Caller got wind of a conference call conducted by representatives from the three groups on Monday night, and used the dial-in code for the call to listen to the entire conversation, where the participants discussed two anti-Kavanaugh protests; one scheduled for Thursday at a confirmation hearing for lower-court nominees, and another next Monday.
CPD national field organizer Darius Gordon reportedly stated that protesters required a government-issued ID and “your cash for the post-and-forfeit.” Gordon and Housing Works national advocacy coordinator Paul Davis allegedly added that if protesters didn’t have their own money, the left-wing organizations would supply funding for the projected post-and-forfeits to protesters who didn’t show up with their own money. Davis apparently asserted, “If you do not have access to your cash we will certainly be able to arrange to get it to you before the action,” adding that such a procedure had been implemented at previous anti-Kavanaugh protests.
Women’s March co-president Bob Bland reportedly insisted, “Postponement isn’t enough,” adding that the allegation from Kavanaugh’s female accuser was “an incredible revelation.”
Of the scheduled protest next Monday at Kavanaugh’s confirmation proceedings, Davis boasted, “Just because they’ve delayed something doesn’t mean we’re done. It’s actually going to get very, very ugly.”
The Daily Caller noted that Soros is a primary source of funding for CPD, and also pointed out that Women’s March lists Planned Parenthood as its “exclusive premier sponsor.”

HERE WE GO… JUNK NEWSPAPER BLAMES TRUMP FOR HURRICANE FLORENCE.
September 12, 2018 by Jim Hoft
Junk newspaper The Washington Post blames Trump for Hurricane Florence.
So President Trump stirred up the global climate in a year-and-a-half into his administration?
These people are insane.
This was posted by the Washington Post editorial board.
Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.
YET AGAIN, a massive hurricane feeding off unusually warm ocean water has the potential to stall over heavily populated areas, menacing millions of people. Last year Hurricane Harvey battered Houston. Now, Hurricane Florence threatens to drench already waterlogged swaths of the East Coast, including the nation’s capital . If the Category 4 hurricane does, indeed, hit the Carolinas this week, it will be the strongest storm on record to land so far north.
President Trump issued several warnings on his Twitter feed Monday, counseling those in Florence’s projected path to prepare and listen to local officials. That was good advice.
Yet when it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters.
Kevin Trenberth, a climate researcher at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, co-wrote a May paper showing that Harvey’s cataclysmic wetness came from the unusually hot Gulf of Mexico water that fed the hurricane before it slammed into Texas. “Harvey could not have produced so much rain without human-induced climate change,” he and his colleagues concluded. Now Florence is feasting on warm Atlantic Ocean water. “The ocean is warming up systematically,” Mr. Trenberth said, explaining that, though natural variation can turn surface temperatures up or down a bit, the oceans’ energy content is inexorably rising. “It is the strongest signal of global warming,” Mr. Trenberth added.

VIOLENCE AGAINST RIGHT ESCALATES AS MEDIA AMP UP HATE-RHETORIC AGAINST TRUMP.
September 12, 2018 by John Nolte
Incidents of violence and threats against the political right have escalated as the establishment media amp up its hate rhetoric against President Trump and his supporters.
The morning after Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd compared media critics to racist segregationists and singled out Fox News as one of America’s biggest problems, a man in a “mentally agitated state,” and apparently upset over an officer involved shooting, intentionally crashed his vehicle into the studios of FOX 4 in Dallas, Texas.
Besides Todd, many in the media, especially at far-left CNN have “othered” Fox News and presented the network as a unique danger to America.
CNN’s Brian Stelter has gone so far as to spread conspiracy theories about Fox News controlling President Trump.
Hours after the far-left Washington Post published Joe Scarborough’s September 11 op-ed claiming Trump is a bigger danger to America than the 9/11 terrorists, a mass shooting threat was made against a group of Trump supporters meeting at the president’s hotel in Washington DC.
Overall in the media, most especially at CNN, a coordinated narrative based on nothing but palace intrigue and gossip has been deployed to smear Trump as mentally unstable, reckless, and in need of removal from office — via the 25th Amendment, if necessary.
Although no one is alleging any kind of wrongdoing on the president’s part, and while Trump’s domestic and foreign policy have put the country in the best shape it has been in in nearly 20 years, the media are using Bob Woodward’s anonymously sourced book and an anonymous New York Times op-ed to scare and divide American into believing an objectively successful president is a madman.
To hype his latest book, Fear: Trump in the White House, Woodward said on the Today Show this week that Trump “jeopardizes” our economy and national security. Woodward, however, did not and was not asked to explain how this could be true when the country is doing so well.
CNN constantly attacks Trump with hate rhetoric, smearing him as “delusional,” as not mentally or psychologically “fit” to be president. Like Woodward and the Times op-ed, this is all being fed to the media anonymously.
But over the past week or so, as the economic news has gotten better and the Russia Collusion Hoax has collapsed, the desperate hate-rhetoric from the media has escalated. These attacks have also extended to the Republican House for “not doing anything” to save our country from the madman Trump.
Disgraced Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein stated on CNN that he believes our country needs to be “saved” from Trump.
What kind of dogwhistle is he sending with rhetoric like that?
While most voters roll their eyes at the melodrama, the real world effects of this inflammatory rhetoric are strikingly real.
Breitbart News has already tallied over documented 550 instances of harassment, threats, and outright violence aimed at Trump and his supporters, and now were are seeing a definite uptick this week as the media have amped up their ad hominem attacks.
On top of the two incidents above, a GOP congressional candidate in California was attacked with a switchblade on Saturday; a GOP campaign office in Laramie, Wyoming, was lit on fire two days after it opened; conservative columnist Denise McAllister has been forced into hiding due to death and rape threats; and a Broadway actress openly called for Trump’s assassination,
When you compare Trump supporters to segregationists, claim Trump is worse than the 9/11 terrorists, and tell the world we have a madman for president, of course you are calling for drastic action against both him and his supporters, and that includes assassination.
BENGHAZI SURVIVOR REFUSES TO STAND DOWN AS OBAMA ATTACKS BENGHAZI ‘WILD CONSPIRACY’ THEORISTS.
September 9, 2018 by Benny Johnson | Reporter At Large
Obama accused the GOP of meddling in conspiracy theories while giving a much-anticipated political speech at the University of Illinois Friday.
Obama scoffed at some of the GOP’s agenda items in his speech, critiquing the Republican-control Congresses.
“This Congress has championed the unwinding of campaign finance laws to give billionaires outside influence over our politics, systematically attacked voting rights to make it harder for young people and minorities and the poor to vote, handed out tax cuts without regard to deficits, slashed the safety net wherever it could, cast dozens of votes to take away health insurance from order Americans…” Obama started.
The former president then accused the GOP of “embracing wild conspiracy theories — like those surrounding Benghazi. Or my birth certificate.”
The line caused laughter in the audience. But one veteran and Benghazi survivor was not laughing.
Kris Paronto was in Benghazi when Islamic extremists overran a U.S. embassy and consulate, killing four Americans. Paronto, a former U.S. Army Ranger, was working as a CIA security contractor at the time.
Paronto called Obama a “cowardly ass” and “scum” for referencing Benghazi in the speech.
“Benghazi is a conspiracy @BarackObama ?!” Paronto tweeted, “How bout we do this, let’s put your cowardly ass on the top of a roof with 6 of your buddies & shoot rpg’s & Ak47’s at you while terrorists lob 81mm mortars killing 2 of your buddies all while waiting for U.S. support that you never sent.”
The Obama administration was harshly criticized for their lethargic reaction to the attack and misleading statements and accusations about the nature of the attacks.
The handling of the Benghazi attack hounded Hillary Clinton in her run for the presidency and is widely seen as one of Obama’s greatest foreign policy blunders.
TRUMP’S ACTIONS REDUCE IRAN’S BOASTING TO BEGGING EUROPE FOR HELP.
September 9, 2018 by Hank Berrien
Iran, reduced to begging after the Trump administration walked away from the disastrous nuclear deal in May, issued a warning to European nations that if they don’t play ball by November 4, Iran will opt out of the nuclear deal itself.
On November 4, the U.S. is scheduled to impose sanctions on Iran’s vital oil industry.
On Tuesday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said on state television that Iran had “clearly announced” to European nations that if its “main interests” in the nuclear deal are not addressed, “staying in the deal will not benefit us anymore. They have a deadline of Nov. 4 and from then on, any action by them would be useless.” Araghchi importuned, “As long as we can sell our oil, it will be in our interest to stay in the JCPOA.”
U.S. sanctions on Iran have already included banning Iran from buying dollars and trading gold and other precious metals, as well as targeting the automotive sector.
The European Union, desperate to appease Iran, had sworn to protect the nuclear deal, but their efforts to circumvent American sanctions have proven difficult to achieve.
Iran’s typical braggadocio has been jettisoned for a more obsequious approach, which didn’t go unnoticed: ...(Read More...)
Do Not Remove
The New World Order and their global subjugation plan, feeds itself on the ignorance of the masses, there are millions of people countering that Marxist subjugation, and one of those organization has spent millions of dollars and time to investigate and develop a very explicit video of what the plot is all about, it’s tactics and their plan. If you are not one of those millions of people who prefer not to be an ignorant, I recommend you see this long Video.
I would like to make some explanations that will facilitate your better understanding of this video: Hitler in Germany was the first fascist government that used the millionaires in his fascist Government effectively. Since then, but much more active in the last 50 years, an elite of bankers are dominating the world to carry out the new world order. In all these years they have learned that only with a fascist/Marxist dictatorship will they be able to do it. With their help, doctrine, and with the great power that the money has given them, allowed them to take control of following key points - education, food production, healthcare, energy, the media and the military force-- to carry it out. If you haven't heard of the plan, that doesn’t mean that hasn’t existed for over fifty years. What that means is that they have manipulated the media and your education to keep you unaware of what is really happening.
