Root: Trump Just Got Mexico To Pay for the Wall and They Didn’t Even Notice
BY KARA PENDLETON

Are you tired of winning yet? Its a common refrain seen on social media every time President Donald Trump keeps a campaign promise. But critics have plagued him with skepticism about being able to keep one of his biggest promises: building the southern border wall, and at Mexico’s expense.
But now it seems said critics may have to eat crow. According to conservative radio talk show host Wayne Allyn Root, Trump just kept that very promise and America is winning, yet again.
“That was all before President Trump announced a United States-Mexico trade agreement. Because Trump talked tough and never gave in, US workers will benefit,” he wrote. “US carmakers will benefit. US manufacturers will benefit. US taxpayers will benefit. Trump did it. He won. We all won.”
“Trump announced he will terminate NAFTA,” he continued. “While we don’t know all the details yet, I guarantee this new trade deal will save us tens of billions, perhaps hundreds of billions of dollars over the next decade.”
“Since the wall with Mexico costs about $25 billion, Trump just forced Mexico (whether they know it, or not) to pay for the wall. Once again, Trump accomplished what establishment politicians of both parties said could never be done.”
According to The Hill, during a “meeting with FIFA and U.S. Soccer officials about the 2026 men’s World Cup,” Trump was asked about about the border wall. Trump’s response was that “the wall will be paid for very easily by Mexico. It will ultimately be paid for by Mexico.”
Following this statement, the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Videgaray Caso took to Twitter to express, again, that Mexico will not pay for the wall.
This, however, does not take into consideration the explanation Root outlined for how they actually will, knowingly or not, pay for the wall, via the trade deal.
The establishment media has been rife headlines proclaiming that, “No, Mexico won’t pay for the wall, no matter what Trump says” rhetoric.
Even on social media, his critics are disputing his claim.
But, as with Caso, none have looked at the simple math of the deal the way Root did.
Interestingly, on Twitter, Trump has not yet been taking a victory lap regarding the wall. He’s been hit hard for months about the wall promise but his tweets focused on other benefits of the trade deal with Mexico.
He began with high praise for all involved in making the deal happen:
He has also discussed how the deal will benefit our economy. Farmers and jobs have been big topics for Trump, even before this deal:
Root pointed out that Trump is taking a page from Rush Limbaugh’s book with a “Don’t doubt me” standard.
He wrote: “(W)ith Donald J. Trump there are no such words as ‘never’ or ‘impossible.’ Trump has chutzpah. Trump has cajones. Trump aims for the moon. Trump is combative and aggressive. Trump is driven to do what others say cannot be done. Trump is an eternal optimist. He accepts nothing less #WINNING.”
It is this, perhaps, that plays a big role in Trump’s popularity with his supporters and one-time doubters, alike. Not only has he been keeping his promises, but he tirelessly fights the good fight for America, regardless of what his critics say.
UPDATE, PART II: Guess who Bruce Ohr was working with? It's bad.
August 31, 2018
Share: Email Tweet FacebookWhen I said the information on Bruce Ohr’s testimony was coming out in dribs and drabs, I was not kidding. I had no sooner finished writing one update when we got another drib. A very major drib.
Recall that Ohr testified that there were people at the FBI who knew about his wife’s work for Glenn Simpson at opposition research company Fusion GPS, which was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, and his back channel communication with British ex-spy, imaginative “dossier” writer and would-be Trump nemesis Christopher Steele –- both before and after Steele was officially considered an acceptable source –- and that behind closed doors he “named names.” Now we’re learning the names.
Yes, these are mostly FBI names, but it should surprise no one that Robert Mueller’s pit bull and lead attorney in the effort to “get Trump,” the notorious Andrew Weissmann, known for withholding exculpatory evidence in other cases, is also on that list. In other words, when Steele and Ohr were making notes about “S.C.,” they WERE referring to “special counsel” (not, as I had joked, “shifty Congressman” Adam Schiff, although I wouldn’t be surprised if he were in the loop as well). Thanks to Ohr, Weissmann knew that Steele’s flights of fantasy were being used to justify the investigation into Trump, and apparently that was just fine with him. In other words, the lead investigator on Mueller’s legal team is complicit in a fraud. Weissmann knew what was going on with Steele even before joining the special counsel team; ironically, when he was first put in the loop, he was chief of the DOJ’s criminal fraud division.
So, let’s see what was going on at the FBI. We’ve learned that then-deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe was being briefed by Ohr about what was going on with Steele’s dirt-digging. Another name: Lisa Page, McCabe’s legal assistant at the time, who had referred to “Andy’s office” in her text about the “insurance policy.” She was also office girlfriend to FBI head of counterintelligence Peter Strzok, who was conveniently in charge of both the Hillary “investigation” and the Trump/Russia probe. See how incestuous this all is? By the time you read this, President Trump will have no doubt indulged himself by raging in a well-justified tweetstorm.
Ohr had failed to disclose to the Justice Department the money his wife Nellie was making from her work at Fusion GPS, and he can be prosecuted for not filling out those official forms correctly. (Catherine Herridge does report that someone at the DOJ was aware but does not provide the identify.) According to FOX News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett –- who is surely already writing a blockbuster sequel to his new bestselling book THE RUSSIA HOAX –- Ohr could be charged with several crimes: honest services fraud, federal gratuity, federal bribery and making a false statement. The Justice Department was not informed of his wife’s work, according to Ohr’s testimony, but numerous people at the FBI knew all about it. Nellie Ohr had been hired specifically to work on the anti-Trump material.
Now we understand why the FBI has been refusing to turn over documents to congressional investigators for soooooooooo long. This is damning.
According to Herridge, the committees are still trying to nail down Ohr’s activities in spreading the dossier, which was really just a piece of slanderous, unverified “oppo research,” certainly not anything that would ever stand up court (and the FBI knew it ), but that was used to dupe a court into granting a warrant to spy on Carter Page, a Trump campaign associate. To get the warrant, they actually accused him of being a Russian agent. No charges have since been filed against Carter Page.
Remember the memo released by Devin Nunes earlier this year? Nunes was savaged for many of the details included in that memo, including the part about the FBI interviewing Ohr and determining that Steele and Ohr had been maintaining contact, and that Steele was determined to keep Trump out of the White House. This new testimony is a vindication.
According to Herridge, there are handwritten notes by Ohr from two weeks after the election that list Strzok, Page and another FBI agent –- perhaps the attendees of a meeting –- and say, “No prosecution yet. Push case ahead on M. May go back to Chris.” “M” appears to be a reference to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, while “Chris” is likely Christopher Steele, whose services were terminated (at least officially) by the FBI that same month for lying and leaking to the media.
Herridge also mentions that Weissman met as early as April of 2017 with reporters to talk about Manafort. A lot was brewing around that time; in May, the President fired FBI Director James Comey, Comey deliberately relayed to the media his personal notes offering “impressions” of conversations he’d had with the President (this was actually a leak of FBI material), and his friend Mueller was appointed to head the special counsel to investigate Trump.
House Democrats don’t care about any of this, and after Ohr’s testimony on Tuesday they supplied reporters with a “fact check” defending him as a career civil servant, conveniently glossing over the stunning details. They maintain that his outreach to Steele was not prohibited or unlawful. Read this, and you’ll know just what is going to happen to this investigation if the Democrats get back in charge. They’ll clamp the lid back down on it so fast, all we’ll see is a blur.
Of course, if Ohr and his wife had been pro-Trump, sworn to do whatever it took to get him INTO office, their activities would be roundly condemned by the Democrats and they’d be facing serious charges that could lead to years in prison. Hey, they could get Andrew Weissmann to prosecute, so any evidence tending to exonerate them would be buried. We all know that’s the way it would go.
It’s hard not to be a cynic these days. For a hefty (but entertaining) dose of cynicism, check out Kurt Schlichter’s new column/rant, “The Rule Of Law Is A Sick Joke.” He echoes the view of many of my readers who don’t expect anything to happen to Hillary or to any of the people who have abused their power. No, I don’t think we’ll get an old-style Hollywood ending, with the good guys triumphing and the bad guys getting what they deserve. But at least we’re exposing the injustice, and that’s a necessary first step.
LOL: DEVIN NUNES DROPS BRUTAL ONE-LINER WHEN CNN REPORTER BERATES HIM IN HALLWAY
July 24, 2018 Martin
House House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes dropped a brutal one-liner on Tuesday after CNN reporter Manu Raju berated him in the hallway on Capitol Hill.
When Nunes was walking down the hall, Raju was repeatedly asking Nunes about the Department of Justice releasing the three applications used by the FBI under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to obtain a spy warrant against former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
The CNN reporter was grilling Nunes on whether he believes the memo he released earlier this year coincides with the FISA applications.
Nunes dropped a bomb on Raju with his response:
“Do you really think I’m going to talk to the leading Democratic Party propaganda?” Nunes fired back.
The redacted version of the FBI’s three applications to obtain spy warrants on Page shows the bureau heavily relied on anti-Trump reporters to spread the unverified dossier during the 2016 presidential election.
Between Oct. 2016 and Sept. 2017, the FBI submitted the warrants for surveillance on Page, telling the secret court that the former Trump aide was an illegal foreign agent working with Russia.
However, Page has not been charged with a single crime since the FBI opened its investigation nearly two years ago, so why did the secret court approve three warrants to spy on the Trump campaign?
Fusion GPS hired former British spy Christopher Steele to compile the dossier. Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid Fusion more than $9 million to fund Steele’s anti-Trump operation.
This operation laid the foundation for the Russia investigation, and paved the way for the special counsel to appointed. Since this operation began two years ago, not a shred of evidence has been presented showing that Trump broke any laws or colluding with Russia.
All of this was detailed in the Nunes memo, which he released earlier this year.
The CNN reporter berated Nunes and tried to claim his memo wasn’t in line with the FISA warrants, and the California Republican absolutely obliterated him with an amazing one-liner.

Nancy Pelosi Just Suffered The Worst Humiliation Of Her Life
Nancy Pelosi was blindsided at the 9/11 Memorial.
A victim’s son delivered a message no one saw coming.
And it ended up being the worst embarrassment of Nancy Pelosi’s life.
A 9/11 Victim’s Son Shuts Down Nancy Pelosi And DemocratsRadical Islamic terrorists killed Nicholas Haros’ mother in the 9/11 attacks.
Terrorists killed her and nearly three thousand other Americans killed that day.
On the 17th anniversary of the attacks, organizers selected Haros to read names of some of the victims as part of the memorial ceremony.
But it was what Haros did when his time was up that left jaws on the ground.
Haros blasted Pelosi, the media, and Democrats for using 9/11 to score political points against Donald Trump.
Democrats Get Called OutHaros went off script to blast Pelosi and the Democrats.
Memorial organizers began to play music to signal that his speaking time was up.
But that was when he used his platform to scold the left for their political attacks.
“And one more thing, if I may,” Haros began.
“This year, a representative of the House referred to our loss as just another incident.This year, a network commentator said the president’s performance in Helsinki was a traitorous act as was 9/11,” Haros said.
“And last week, a senator attacked a Supreme Court nominee and called him a racist for alleged comments after 9/11.”
“Stop. Stop,” he continued. “Please stop using the bones and ashes of our loved ones as props in your political theater. Their lives, sacrifices, and death are worth so much more. Let’s not trivialize them or us. It hurts.”
Democrats Difficulty With The TruthHaros told the truth.
Pelosi outraged millions of Americans when she used the 9/11 attacks to deflect attention away from her support for open borders.
She said, “When we had the 9/11 incident the commission was formed and they made the recommendations.”
Pelosi also blamed the GOP for not securing the border, “They made recommendations to protect America, and some were about our borders, and Republicans would not take them up.”
Haros pointed out that Corey Booker made a fool of himself as well when he brought up 9/11.
Booker released emails meant to smear Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
But the emails showed Kavanaugh did not believe in using racial profiling in airports after 9/11.
Booker disgraced himself.
The New Jersey Democrat had used 9/11 to boost his 2020 Presidential bid.
Haros deserved call out Booker.
Finally, Haros put the media on blast.
He called out MSNBC’s John Brennan for claiming Trump’s answers at a press conference with Vladimir Putin were “treason.”
Democrats think they can get away with anything.
That’s because the fake news media acts as their bodyguards.
Journalists believe it is their job to take a given set of facts and shape them into a story that benefits the Democrats.
Nicholas Haros called them all out on their shameful behavior.
Millions of Americans cheered his comments.
Did you agree with what Haros said?
The Right Take on Campus Campus discourages Sept. 11 memorial citing 'bias' against Muslims

SUBMITAdministrators at Ripon College in Wisconsin have ruled that a Sept. 11 memorial cannot take place on campus because it may offend Muslim students.
The private school cited bias reports that were filed during last year’s Sept. 11 memorial project, a project that was a part of Young America's Foundation’s iconic patriotism initiative which takes place across the country on campuses every year.
The school's Bias Protocol Board said the project creates an “environment” where “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed.” As a result, Ripon students will not be allowed to hang flyers as part of their vigil to remember the victims of Sept. 11.
According to YAF, administrators claimed that one of their objections is “because radical Islamist terrorism ‘represents a small percentage of the terrorist attacks that happened to this country, and they don’t represent the full gamut, and they show a very small picture of a specific religion or nationality instead of the larger viewpoint.’”
“This attempt by Ripon College’s 'bias protocol board' to sanitize the truth out of remembering the anniversary of September 11 proves the necessity of YAF's iconic 9/11: Never Forget Project, as well as the need for bold YAF activists," Young America’s Foundation Spokesman Spencer Brown told Red Alert Politics. "YAF’s leadership in creating meaningful memorials on this important date in our nation’s history ensures that the rising generation remembers the 2,977 innocent lives lost. The administrators’ reliance on feelings rather than facts betrays their intention to cower from the truth rather than highlight the scourge of radical Islamist terror for what it is: evil.”
[Opinion: Ripon College administrators should rethink their idiotic ban of 9/11 posters]
The Ripon handbook states that the college is “committed to the free speech and open exchange of ideas and views, as reflected in the institution’s Core Values” but this commitment “requires the confrontation of challenging issues in the context of civil discourse and intellectual inquiry.” Students can combat bias by “participating in on-campus programming around multiculturalism, diversity and social justice.”
"We offered up alterations to the poster that would also show non-Muslim terrorist attacks," said Hannah Krueger, a Ripon student and member of YAF.
The bias protocol board told the students their suggested changes would look like an afterthought and instead suggested they make new posters of just the twin towers, she said.
"I would say it was heavily implied that we are not allowed to put the posters up and that we would face potential penalties,“ Krueger said.
The Ripon Center for Diversity and Inclusion boasts of its programming surrounding International Month, Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month and LGBT History Month, and “Culture Week,” yet bans the “social activism” of a patriotic event remembering the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
The handbook goes on to explain and vaguely define a "bias Incident” as a “behavior or act—verbal, written, or physical—which is personally directed against or targets an individual or group based on perceived or actual characteristics.”
While hate crimes should be punished and bias generally creates a negative environment for learning and living, Americans should absolutely be biased against our enemies, especially terrorist organizations like al Qaeda or the Islamic State.
Ripon’s censorship of YAF’s memorial is a chilling example of speech suppression, where a bipartisan, patriotic event is being shut down due to the anonymous objections of a few. It’s also an example of the shocking anti-American sentiment taking place in U.S. higher education.
Michael Cohen attorney Lanny Davis is on the payroll of a Putin ally
Jordan Schachtel · August 23, 2018
Does Lanny Davis have a collusion problem?
Lanny Davis, the longtime Clinton confidant who is also the attorney for former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, is on the payroll of a pro-Moscow Ukrainian oligarch with direct ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
According to Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) records reviewed by Conservative Review, Davis is an active registered foreign agent for Ukrainian billionaire Dmytro Firtash. A review of his social media records shows that Davis has never tweeted about his Ukrainian client, seemingly preferring to advocate quietly for Firtash, who faces enormous legal issues in courtrooms across the world.
Firtash’s ties to Putin have been exposed in several investigate reports. Moreover, the Ukrainian’s deeply corrupt business practices have put him on the radar of U.S. authorities, who are currently demanding his extradition to Chicago to face bribery charges.
Firtash, like many oligarchs tied to Moscow, owes much of his financial success to the Putin regime. Over the course of his business career, Firtash has secured sweetheart deals with major Russian state-owned energy companies, which filled the Ukrainian’s pockets with billions of dollars. The investment into Firtash paid off big-time, from a geopolitical perspective. He played an integral role in securing victory in the 2010 Ukrainian presidential election for Russian puppet Viktor Yanukovych. Following a popular uprising in 2014, Yanukovych fled the country. He now lives in exile in Russia.
Lanny Davis has been the principle lobbyist for Mr. Firtash since at least June 2014, which, notably, is just a few months after Yanukovych was thrown out of office. During that time period, Davis was earning $60,000 per month from Firtash. That number was expected to be boosted to $80,000 per month, plus expenses (around one million dollars per year), when Davis re-registered as Firtash’s chief lobbyist in 2016. That contract remains active to this day.
In another sketchy development reported by a Ukrainian news site, Davis was wired $80,000 from Firtash just two weeks before the 2016 presidential election.
According to a Reuters investigation into Firtash:
“Bankers close to Putin granted Firtash credit lines of up to $11 billion. That credit helped Firtash, who backed pro-Russian Viktor Yanukovych’s successful 2010 bid to become Ukraine’s president, to buy a dominant position in the country’s chemical and fertiliser industry and expand his influence.”
The report continues:
“With the help of Firtash, Yanukovych won power and went on to rule Ukraine for four years. The relationship had great geopolitical value for Putin: Yanukovych ended up steering the nation of more than 44 million away from the West’s orbit and towards Moscow’s until he was overthrown in February.”
A deeply unpopular man in his native Ukraine, Firtash currently lives in exile in Vienna, Austria, as U.S. authorities continue to spar with Davis and his legal team on extraditing the Ukrainian billionaire to the United States. Firtash is accused of attempting to bribe Indian authorities with an $18.5 million dollar advance to secure the sale of minerals to the U.S.-based defense contracting giant Boeing.
Additionally, several human rights groups and anti-corruption groups have urged U.S. authorities to place Firtash on the Global Magnitsky List, which would impose heavy sanctions on Firtash and alienate him from global markets.
Firtash is not merely a corrupt businessman who owes his success to one of America’s biggest adversaries. He is also deeply tied in with elements of organized crime in Eastern Europe. According to Foreign Policy, Firtash is a longtime business partner of Semion Mogilevich, who has been described by the FBI as the most dangerous mobster in the world.
While Lanny Davis is representing Michael Cohen pro bono, his primary source of income appears to come from a man who is currently a top priority for U.S. authorities. Davis has quite the client on his hands. The longtime Clinton confidant has spent the last four years of his life fighting in court for a man who owes all of his success to a Russian autocrat, who is also deeply connected to a worldwide criminal network.
As one of America’s top adversaries, the Kremlin has prioritized sowing general discord inside the United States. Is Lanny Davis, the foreign agent for Putin’s man in Ukraine, forwarding the Kremlin’s mission to spread chaos by attacking the authority and undermining the mandate of the duly elected president of the United States?

MORE THAN HALF OF FOREIGN REFUGEES ARE ON TAXPAYER-FUNDED FOOD STAMPS.
August 14, 2018 by John Binder
More than half of the annual inflow of foreign refugees arriving in the United States are on food stamps, a government report reveals.
Since 2008, as Breitbart News reported, the U.S. has permanently resettled more than 1.7 million foreign nationals and refugees through a variety of humanitarian programs like the Special Immigrant Juveniles and the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act. This is a foreign population larger than Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — a city with more than 1.5 million residents.
An annual report by the Office of Refugee Resettlement was analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Jason Richwine, in which the analyst revealed that about 56 percent of households headed by foreign refugees who arrived in the U.S. between 2011 and 2015 are using taxpayer-funded food stamps.
Nearly 30 percent of refugees received cash welfare of some sort, while 34 percent of refugees 18-years-old or older said they had no health insurance. Of the refugees who said they did have health insurance, about 50 percent said they were either on Medicaid or Refugee Medical Assistance, both of which are taxpayer-funded.
The education levels of foreign refugees coming to the U.S. are also remarkably low. Roughly half of refugees 25-years or older said they did not have a high school diploma before arriving in the U.S.
Additionally, only 16 percent of refugees 18-years or older said they were currently seeking some kind of degree. The most common degree sought by refugees is a high school diploma.
As Breitbart News‘ Michael Patrick Leahy noted most recently, President Trump’s administration has historically reduced the annual inflow of foreign refugees. Under Trump’s “America First” agenda, the U.S. is on pace to accept less than 23,000 refugees for the Fiscal Year 2018. This would be the lowest yearly refugee admission in three decades.

Parkland Dad Attacks Feinstein for Behavior During Kavanaugh Hearing
While liberals are pushing a probably imaginary story about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly snubbing the father of a girl murdered in February’s school shooting in Florida, another parent of a Parkland victim is speaking out in ways that are all too real.

Share on Facebook Tweet Email PrintWhile liberals are pushing a probably imaginary story about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly snubbing the father of a girl murdered in February’s school shooting in Florida, another parent of a Parkland victim is speaking out in ways that are all too real.
And his target is one of the Democratic Party’s loudest advocates for gun control — California Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
In a series of Twitter posts on Tuesday, Andrew Pollack, the father of 18-year-old slaying victim Meadow Pollack, called out Feinstein for using the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings as a platform for her “radical” anti-gun agenda.
As anyone who watched the hearings knows, Feinstein used Kavanaugh’s hearing to grandstand about his views on the Second Amendment and what liberals call “assault weapons.”
Pollack clearly wasn’t happy with the senator.
“Senator Feinstein, Please stop weaponizing the death of my daughter to push your radical agenda,” Pollack wrote in one tweet.
In another, he bashed the media as a whole for politicizing the deaths of his daughter and others for the sake of a liberal agenda.
“Certain politicians like @SenFeinstein and the media never miss out on a chance to use the deaths of the innocent victims of the Parkland school shooting,” he wrote.
“Truly pathetic and disgraceful.”
What’s interesting here is that too much media attention is being focused on the complaints of Fred Guttenberg, the father of another young woman who died in the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Guttenberg, who was invited to the Kavanaugh hearing by Feinstein, told CNN Tuesday that Kavanaugh had deliberately snubbed him at a break in the hearing. He said he tried to shake the nominee’s hand, but Kavanaugh turned his back on him.
There’s no way of knowing for sure what was going through Kavanaugh’s mind at that moment, but it’s a good bet that anyone who’d just sat through the hours of abuse, protest and Democrat posturing that Kavanaugh had just experienced would have had a lot to occupy his thoughts.
It’s worth noting, also, that Kavanaugh has built a reputation over decades in Washington as a remarkably civil man. A deliberate snub of a grieving father, in other words, seems unlikely.
In a Twitter post Tuesday, deputy White House press secretary Raj Shah, meanwhile, stated that security staff in the hearing room intervened between the two men, breaking off their contact.
Regardless of what happened, the reality is that even the conversation is a Democrat distraction.
Brett Kavanaugh has spent a career in law proving that he considers the contents of the Constitution to be paramount for deciding legal cases.
Dianne Feinstein and her fellow travelers, meanwhile, have warped a major American political party into an organization that not only disregards the Constitution when it’s convenient, but seems to have open contempt for it.
Check out Feinstein’s grandstanding here:
In light of what’s really important to Americans who care about the Constitution, Pollack’s gripe with Feinstein is a lot more important than whatever happened or didn’t happen between Guttenberg and Kavanaugh.
And Pollack’s Twitter post about Kavanaugh and the Parkland shooting itself, which cites Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, Broward Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie and the FBI’s bungling of numerous warnings about the gunman makes a lot more sense than liberal gripes.
Another tweet summed up Pollack’s point perfectly.
“Stop using our heartbrak to raise money and push a dangerous agenda! It’s disgusting and pathetic,” Pollack wrote. “No wonder the country hates you people.”
Those are words that are all too real.
Are Democrats, and Sen. Feinstein, listening?
Body of boy found in shallow grave was killed by MS-13, police say
August 30, 2018
by Jerry McCormickEvan El-Amin / Shutterstock
The sweethearts of the Democrat party have just claimed another life.
A young boy was found dead in Long Island on Wednesday and police say he was the victim of MS-13.
No DoubtLocal Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder left no doubt who was behind the disturbing murder.
When asked, he simply stated, “It is MS-13.”
The boy’s body was found near Kellenberg Memorial High School.
Police estimate the body had been placed in the shallow grave more than a year ago.
This would place the boy’s murder at roughly the same time several other bodies were found in Long Island in April 2017.
The TruthIn reality, the members of the MS-13 gang are closer to the “animals” President Trump described than that disgusting documentary created by liberals.
People like Nancy Pelosi want everyone to think these gang members are ordinary people, but they are about as far from normal as one could be in today’s world.
The informal motto of the gang is “mata, roba, viola, controla,” which translates to “kill, steal, rape, and control.”
While the gang originated here in the United States, it has evolved over the years as a haven for undocumented immigrants, most of whom are from El Salvador.
Liberals are constantly making excuses to counter Trump’s narrative, and it makes them sound utterly ridiculous.
For instance, they say the administration got it wrong, as there is no “documentation” existing the gang operates under that motto.
It is not enough for liberals to hear these gang members say this regularly, as they want it in some type of employee handbook to legitimize it.
They also point to the “code” of MS-13 that raping someone within their community is looked upon negatively — but what about women outside of their community?
They are animals… period.
“We will be relentless in the pursuit of going after these individuals that have committed crimes in Nassau County,” Ryder stated.
Our government should be taking the same attitude and rid our entire country of their presence.
All Hell Broke Loose After What Donald Trump Just Did To Bill Clinton
Donald Trump ran for President to undo the horrible deals past Presidents such as Bill Clinton agreed to.
His campaign to Make America Great Again centered on this one promise.
That is why all hell is breaking loose after what Trump did to Bill Clinton.
Donald Trump Undoes One Of Bill Clinton’s Legacy AchievementsDuring his campaign, Donald Trump railed against trade deals like NAFTA.
Bill Clinton signed NAFTA, which had wrecked the American industry.
Trump stated this deal shipped jobs overseas and allowed other countries to take advantage of America.
He promised to cancel the deal altogether unless Mexico and Canada agreed to pro-America changes.
The three countries began talks this year, while anti-Trump journalists made fun of Trump’s threats to put tariffs on goods from those countries.
The President – however – saw the tariffs as a chance to force Canada and Mexico to the table.
Their industries had done very well under the NAFTA agreement, so Trump had to pressure them.
Trump Scores A Big VictoryTrump’s gamble paid off.
Anti-Trump journalists were stunned when Trump and Mexico’s President agreed to change NAFTA.
Trump said he was renaming a new deal that would benefit American industries and workers.
“They used to call it NAFTA. We’re going to call it the United States-Mexico Trade Agreement, and we’ll get rid of the name NAFTA,” Trump stated.
The new agreement benefits America carmakers and textile companies.
Anti-Trump reporters laughed at Trump for thinking he could strike a new deal.
They claimed that because he was a racist, Mexico would never agree to terms that would profit America.
But Trump has always stated that the U.S. holds the upper hand in any deal.
Other countries need to be able to sell their goods in America.
Trump used that advantage to win a new deal, even when his critics claimed it was out of reach.
Donald Trump’s Next StepSince Canada is also part of NAFTA, Trump threatened to make the new deal just between America and Mexico in order to force Canada to accept the new agreement.
He said he would impose new tariffs if Canada does not agree to the new deal.
“I think with Canada, frankly, the easiest thing we can do is to tariff their cars coming in. It’s a tremendous amount of money and it’s a very simple negotiation. It could end in one day and we take in a lot of money the following day. But I think we’ll give them a chance to probably have a separate deal. We can have a separate deal or we can put it into this deal,” Trump stated.
Canadian President Justin Trudeau realized Trump was serious and spoke with Trump about a new NAFTA agreement.
Trump proved the critics wrong with his new NAFTA deal.
Anti-Trump journalists tried to scare the American people with doomsday stories about the economy tanking if Trump ditched NAFTA.
But the President knows that America holds all the cards.
Red Tide Scientists Speak, but Some People Won't Listen
August 14, 2018 - 6:00am
Finally, the scientists.
The only question is, did they show up in time to dispel the ecoterrorist myths and other politically driven bullcrackers about Florida red tide?
If you're looking for answers about the pall of death that's settled on Gulf Coast beaches, click here and spend the hour it takes to view Mote Marine Laboratory's forum from last week. Frankly, I wish you would. There's so much intentional confusion out there.
Mote, in Sarasota, is ground zero for Karenia brevis red tide. It is an independent research institution that has studied Florida red tide for decades in cooperation with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, among other partners.
(The Mote scientists' panel, by the way, is shown on this page: from left, Gretchen Lovewell, program manager for Mote’s Strandings Investigation Program; Dr. Rich Pierce, senior scientist and program manager for ecotoxicology research; Dr. Tracy Fanara, staff scientist and program manager for environmental health; Dr. Vince Lovko, staff scientist and program manager for phytoplankton ecology; and Hayley Rutger, content development manager and moderator.)
Unsurprisingly, the most frequent question residents asked the panel: Is Florida red tide related to the blue-green algae bloom plaguing the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries? The answer was no.
Said Dr. Vince Lovko, "Blue-green algae is a type of bacteria that uses the energy of the sun like plants. Those are freshwater species and not always toxic. Karenia brevis, or red tide, is a marine organism that survives in a high-salinity environment. ... It can use at least 12 sources of nitrogen and phosphorus nutrients, making bloom dynamics extremely complex and challenging to sort out."
This panel Q&A isn't going to tell you how to stop red tide from moving onshore, or even why it can gravitate from one beach to another in a few hours. Scientists around the world are still working on that one. But it will help you separate fact from fiction, you'll discover the enormity of the thing you're dealing with and how you can help as a volunteer now and as a good citizen later.
Scientists are still investigating theories and connections. For example, what specifically makes red tide grow, why you don't want to kill it, when it will leave, what effect climate change or Sahara dust might have on it and what breakthroughs are close.
Maybe it's a coincidence, but it seems to me since Friday's online forum, the press is taking greater care to make responsible distinctions in how they play red tide stories. See Kimberley Miller's "SPECIAL REPORT: A foul task -- cleaning up Florida’s red tide corpses" in the Palm Beach Post and Craig Pittman's "Red Tide’s toxic toll -- your questions answered" in the Tampa Bay Times.
The activist terrorists would have you believe coastal nutrient pollution caused Florida red tide.
It did not.
It did not come from Lake Okeechobee or from the Caloosahatchee River or from state government.
Florida red tides develop 10-40 miles offshore, away from man-made nutrient sources. They occurred in Florida long before human settlement. Severe red tides were observed in the mid-1900s before the state’s coastlines were heavily developed.
The problem is, in the 21st Century, the coastlines really are developed. Intensely so. Once red tides are transported inshore toward such an active environment, they can feast and grow on man-made nutrients.
Any nutrient that spills off the land -- fertilizer from farms, ranches, golf courses and homeowners' yards, road runoff, sewage, all the products of development ... and for that matter, even dead marine life the organism creates -- can Miracle-Gro a red tide bloom.
What the scientists didn't talk about are the activist-terrorists who seize any opportunity to exploit dead animals and noxious beaches to attack Gov. Rick Scott, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and farmers. They have no real solutions. They aren’t interested. Their strategy is simple: Get bad or flat-out wrong information accepted into the narrative, then you upset already frustrated people who in turn threaten farmers and the Okeechobee lakeside communities with violence. And just as important, maybe you elect the people they want you to elect.
Earlier last week CNN, with all its clout, sent reporter Bill Weir to Sanibel Island. Instead of matching a red tide story to the photos displayed of dead fish on the beach, Weir allowed his story to meander into Lake Okeechobee blame. "Scientists search for 'smoking gun' in the dead zone of Florida's red tide" failed to consider that Karenia brevis at times since October has stretched 150 miles along the coast and too far north for the Caloosahatchee to affect. Broadcast and written, it was a story with an agenda.
But like I said, that's the information you want in your narrative if you're an activist terrorist. You want people to confuse red tide and blue-green algae. You want to keep Lake Okeechobee "the valley of the shadow of death."
More disappointing than the CNN story was a commentary from Julie Hauserman, a reporter I hired many years back and have always considered one of the best environmental writers in Florida. Julie is editor-in-chief of the new political and government online site, Florida Phoenix. I knew she would give me a great read, but what I didn't expect was so much agenda in "Yes, this really is Rick Scott, Adam Putnam and Pam Bondi’s fault."
"Yes, this really is ..." blames dead manatees, marine mammals, fish and hundreds of sea turtles washing up on Florida’s southwest coast not on red tide, an organism born in oligotrophic offshore waters and pushed into coastal waters by winds and tides. Instread we can lay the death of these creatures at the feet of Scott, Putnam and Attorney General Pam Bondi for claiming that "setting pollution limits for sewage, manure and fertilizer runoff would be an 'onerous regulation' by an 'overbearing federal government.'"
The back story Julie never mentioned: During a deep recession, including a Florida unemployment rate above 11 percent, Environmental Protection Agency Director Lisa Jackson wanted to impose on Florida numeric nutrient standards she couldn't justify. A study by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the University of Florida projected the EPA mandates could have cost Florida up to $1.6 billion annually and eliminated 14,500 jobs. Plus, a survey of nine Florida water utilities estimated a household's sewer rates would have increased by $62 per month, or more than $700 per year. Even Sen. Bill Nelson objected because of "the potential cost of compliance."
In one analysis, PolitiFact concluded, "The new EPA water regulations would force the state to make drainage canals every bit as clean as pristine Florida river systems." A cost-prohibitive undertaking.
Incidentally, Mote scientists were asked specifically: Does red tide affect drinking water? "No," replied Dr. Tracy Fanara. "... Reverse osmosis equipment removes toxins."
I'm not going to kid myself. I know the activist-terrorists' agenda won't go away because Mote Marine Laboratory gave Floridians a Webinar with actual scientists who study red tide every day. They have too much at stake between the election and the money that flows in from billionaire patrons on a mission. But a lot of people watched the video and I believe understand more about red tide this week than they did last. I have hope.
