Establishment GOP Puts Cronies
over Country on Missile Defense

American Greatness, by Angelo Codevilla

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 9/13/2017 11:22:55 AM

As North Korea demonstrates America’s vulnerability to ballistic missiles, and as President Trump pledges “many billions of dollars” for “the anti-missile,” establishment Republicans are poised to use missile defense talk today in the same way they did in the wake of Ronald Reagan’s commitment to it: profit politically from rhetoric, funnel money to the best-connected contractors, and accomplish nothing. Since Reagan restored missile defense to the nation’s agenda 34 years ago, Republicans have led the spending of some 80 billion dollars on its behalf. But they have acquiesced as the U.S government has crafted each and every program according to

Comments:
The article goes on to talk about “The $30 Billion Boondoggle”.

Well worth a read, especially for anyone who still hankers for McConnell, Ryan and/or any of the Establishment GOPe types.

Got a fund raising letter in the mail today from the Republican National Committee. It´s going right in the round file. We gave the GOP the House, the Senate and the Presidency and they are squandering an opportunity of a lifetime to turn things around in this county. The RINO´s like Ryan, McConnell, McCain, etc., cannot pass themselves off as conservatives anymore. DRAIN THE SWAMP!

Twitter Engineer Admits to Banning
Accounts that Express Interest

Twitter direct messaging engineer Pranay Singh admitted to mass-banning accounts that express interest in God, guns, and America, during a Project Veritas investigation. “Just go to a random [Trump] tweet and just look at the followers. They’ll all be like, guns, God, ‘Merica, and with the American flag and the cross,” declared Singh, who was secretly recorded by Project Veritas reporters. “Like, who says that? Who talks like that? It’s for sure a bot.” After being asked whether he could get rid of the accounts, he replied, “Yeah. You just delete them, but, like, the problem is there are hundreds of thousands

Michael Wolff Did Trump a Big Favor
American Greatness, by Chris Buskirk    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/11/2018 12:53:12     Post Reply
You wouldn’t know it from the media coverage, but President Trump is emerging from the furor over Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury” as the winner. For all the seemingly damaging headlines coming out of Stephen K. Bannon’s disclosures to Wolff, the book represents a political victory for Trump, one that could improve his party’s prospects heading into the midterm elections. The reasoning underlying this counterintuitive conclusion is simple: Trump’s disavowal of Bannon, his former campaign chief executive and White House strategist, and Bannon’s ensuing contrition, reminds fractious Republicans that this is Trump’s party now. Political leaders must be either feared or

One of the most contentious issues surrounding the Trump dossier is the question of whether the FBI used unverified material from the dossier — a Clinton campaign opposition research product — to apply for permission to spy on Americans. Investigators from both House and Senate have long wanted to see any FISA applications (that is, spying requests filed with the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court) that dealt with the Trump-Russia affair. Now, they have seen them. Sources on both Capitol Hill and in the executive branch have confirmed that representatives of four committees — the House Intelligence Committee, Senate

Doesn´t look like amnesty is happening

Sometimes I get ahead of readers, so I must apologize for not freaking out over President Trump´s meeting with congressional leaders over granting amnesty to 800,000 illegal aliens who claim they were abducted and brought here as children. I went over all this on Saturday, and I thought everyone understood. But OK, let us go over this again. President Trump has already won this battle. He won the battle in September when he said he would enforce the law, which means deporting all illegal aliens including this crew. He gave Congress six months to give this set of criminals amnesty. In Washington-ese,

It can be difficult to see through the wording to understand the accurate story. Sara Carter and Fox News are both confirming the DOJ and FBI used the Steele Dossier to get FISA-702 Data Surveillance Authority allowing them to spy on Trump campaign officials. In the latest developments, as reported by Sara Carter and Fox News, the DOJ and FBI used the sketchy ‘Steele Dossier’ as the foundation for their FISA application. WATCH: (Video)A warrant implies advanced judicial approval to begin surveillance and collecting emails and phone calls etc. Like a traditional Title III DOJ / law enforcement search warrant.

Sometimes you just cant win. Former president Obama is finalizing plans for his Obama Presidential Center, which will be built in Chicago, Illinois and will be within a stone’s throw of the University of Chicago.(Snip) The library’s design and location has been a source of controversy itself within the Chicago community. In a recent letter, over 100 members of the University of Chicago faculty and dozens of community groups strongly condemn Obama’s plan. Why? Because, according to the professors, the Obama Presidential Center wastes millions of taxpayer dollars in an already broke state, destroys a public park and is “socially regressive” to

The left is pushing Dems over a

The clock is ticking toward a January 19 deadline for congressional negotiators who are trying to come up with a long term budget to avoid a government shutdown. Complicating matters are Democrats who are insisting any budget deal include legislation to legalize illegal aliens eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Also slowing negotiations are talks over children´s health insurance (CHIPS) and disaster relief funding. Democrats enraged their activist base last month when several senators voted for the temporary funding bill that didn´t include DACA legilsation. This time, they are putting enormous pressure on Democratic lawmakers to

A group of House Republicans unveiled their own solution to an Obama-era immigration program on Wednesday as questions persist over how congressional leadership and the White House will work out a deal on the issue. The bill, backed by the chairmen of the House Judiciary and Homeland Security committees, would call for more aggressive enforcement measures in exchange for addressing the thousands of young undocumented immigrants whose fate has been in limbo for months. Backers of the bill are hoping to rally GOP support in the coming days, seizing on the concerns of their House colleagues that they could find

This outline is intended to clear up some confusion and answer common questions about the 2016 DOJ and FBI Counterintelligence Operation against candidate Trump. ie. “The Trump Operation”. Deep Background #1 HERE – Deep Background #2 HERE (Snip)s we have explained there were no Title III wiretap warrants against the Trump campaign. Title III warrants are the historic reference to the DOJ or FBI wiretapping a suspect to gather information. Former DNI James Clapper has denied there were any Title III wiretap warrants issued.

DACA injunction: What a federal

Washington Post, by Maria Sacchetti    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 1/10/2018 12:07:28     Post Reply
A federal judge’s decision to block the Trump administration’s plans to phase out protections for undocumented “dreamers” brought sharp backlash Wednesday from the White House, which called the injunction “outrageous.” The order issued late Tuesday by U.S. District Judge William Alsup says safeguards against deportation must remain in place for the nearly 690,000 immigrants in the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program while a legal challenge to ending the program proceeds. It remained unclear Wednesday when the DACA recipients, who were brought to this country illegally as children and are also known as “dreamers,” could resume applying for renewals

Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein suggested a “bad cold” may have impaired her mental faculties and caused her to release Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee without telling committee chairman Chuck Grassley. Feinstein published Simpson’s testimony on Tuesday, catching Republicans by surprise. Simpson’s testimony, taken during August of last year, covered his firm’s role in producing the infamous anti-Trump dossier for the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee. Feinstein, 84, expressed regret on Wednesday for keeping Sen. Grassley in the dark, and suggested it was because of a “bad cold.” “The one regret I have is that I

The first community organizer to become president has managed to anger community groups so much with his planned personal monument, aka “presidential center,” that part of the plan was just scrapped. (snip) The original plan would have grabbed a treasured part of Chicago’s park system, the Midway (site of Chicago’s World’s Fair) for a two-story garage. The group Save the Midway sprang up to protect the historic public park land from a private developer (the Obama Foundation) appropriating the land for a private purpose (the Obama Center will not be part of the National Archives System) The embarrassment is palpable:

Washington state’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee warned there was “just 59 days” to save future generations from “an endless cycle of crop-killing droughts one year, and rivers spilling their banks the next.” Inslee went on a lengthy Twitter rant in efforts to convince the state legislature to pass legislation to tax carbon dioxide emissions. Washington residents voted down Inslee’s last carbon tax plan by a wide margin in 2016. (Tweet) The state legislature’s session ends in 59 days, on March 8. Democrats have a slim majority in both state legislative chambers. Inslee wants lawmakers to pass a tax on carbon

The Yale University psychology professor who called President Trump “mentally impaired” appears to lack a valid license to practice psychiatry in her home state of Connecticut. The professor, Bandy Lee, made the headlines over the past few days when she made a diagnosis of the president as suffering from a “mental impairment” that would disqualify him from the highest office in the land. Following Lee’s comments, the American Psychiatric Association released a statement on Tuesday warning members of its profession to refrain from making public diagnoses of public figures like Trump without a proper medical exam. “We at the APA call for an

As many people across the country recognized Law Enforcement Appreciation Day Tuesday, convicted spy Chelsea Manning took to Twitter to blast the men and women in blue. “F–k the police,” Manning tweeted out on Tuesday, followed by “#DisarmThePolice #WeGotThis.” Manning doubled down on her position, sending out a series of tweets with seemingly unsourced stats. Manning, who was known as Bradley Manning before transitioning in prison after her arrest in 2010, was convicted in 2013 of 20 counts, including Espionage Act violations, theft and computer fraud.

You´ve heard of Benghazi and Uranium One. But more than a year after Hillary Clinton’s resounding loss to President Trump, she must now grapple with a new scandal: An ongoing Federal Election Commission investigation into an alleged $84 million money laundering scheme orchestrated by the Hillary Victory Fund — the $500 million joint fundraising committee between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and Democratic state parties. Based on former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile’s public comments, a memo by former Clinton campaign manager Robbie Mook, and months of reviewing FEC reports, the Committee to Defend the President has filed an FEC

The goal of providing the dossier to McCain, the Fusion GPS founders explained, was to pass the information contained in the questionable document to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that while he supports additional barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border, he believes some of the estimated costs for President Trump’s border wall are too high to justify. "I remain a fiscal conservative, even on the wall, so I’m not excited about spending $20, $30, $40 billion on a wall. I’m still a believer that we don’t have money to spend. We’re $700 billion in the hole,” Paul said on CNN.  “And while I will vote for money for barriers, I’m not voting for $40 billion for barriers,” Paul added.  A report last week detailed Trump’s

President Donald Trump, frustrated with America´s continued responsibility for immigrants fleeing Third World natural disasters, asked members of Congress Thursday in vulgar terms why the United States had to shoulder such a burden. ´Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?´ Trump said, according to two people who were briefed on the meeting and then leaked the comment to The Washington Post. Trump was reportedly speaking about Haitians and citizens of various African nations. Instead, he said, the U.S. should seek to assimilate people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with a day earlier. Unlike Haiti
