Bride of ISIS: One Young Woman’s Path into Homegrown Terrorism Bride of ISIS: One Young Woman’s Path into Homegrown Terrorism

By Anne Speckhard

Why would a “normal” American teen convert to Islam and then try to join a terrorist organization, and how do terrorists seduce women over the Internet and lure them into traveling thousands of miles to become their wives? Based upon a composite of actual cases and inspired by the true story of Shannon Conley, an American teen from Denver, Colorado who converted to Islam, took the niqab, and who ultimately ended up in the clutches of ISIS, Bride of ISIS follows Sophie Lindsay—another “girl next-door” as she is seduced over the Internet. Written by an internationally respected counter-terrorism expert and Georgetown University adjunct associate professor of psychiatry and security studies.

DEAR CNN: Look What Carrier AC Is Doing After Trump REBUKED Them


waving flagPublished on November 30, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://clashdaily.com/2016/11/dear-cnn-look-carrier-ac-trump-rebuked/

Trump taking positive action even BEFORE taking office? Isn’t that a nice change to Obama’s blaming of Bush well into his second term?

Air conditioning company Carrier Corp. said it had reached a deal with President-elect Donald Trump to keep nearly 1,000 jobs in Indiana. Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence are planning to travel to the state on Thursday to unveil the agreement alongside company officials.

The President-elect spent much of his campaign pledging to keep companies like Carrier from moving jobs overseas to countries like Mexico. His focus on manufacturing jobs contributed to his unexpected appeal with working-class voters in states like Michigan, which has long voted for Democrats in presidential elections.

The details of the agreement are unclear.

Carrier tweeted on Tuesday that the company was ‘pleased to have reached a deal’ with Trump and Pence to keep the jobs in Indianapolis. A transition official confirmed that the president-elect and Pence, who is ending his tenure as Indiana governor, would appear with Carrier officials Thursday…Trump said last week that he was ‘making progress’ on trying to get Carrier to stay in Indiana. He tweeted on Thanksgiving: ‘I am working hard, even on Thanksgiving, trying to get Carrier A.C. Company to stay in the U.S. (Indiana). MAKING PROGRESS – Will know soon!’

In February, Carrier said it would shutter its Indianapolis plant employing 1,400 workers and move its manufacturing to Mexico. The plant’s workers would have been laid off over three years starting in 2017.

United Technologies Electronic Controls also announced then that it planned to move its Huntington manufacturing operations to a new plant in Mexico, costing the northeastern Indiana city 700 jobs by 2018. Those workers make microprocessor-based controls for the HVAC and refrigeration industries.

HILARIOUS: Share This Meme With Morons Who PRAISE Socialism – It’s BRUTAL


waving flagPublished on November 30, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://clashdaily.com/2016/11/hilarious-share-meme-morons-praise-socialism-brutal/

For all those people that were praising Fidel Castro, we’ve got a meme for you!

socialism-meme

Socialism is destructive. The redistributive nature of Socialism seeks to achieve balance in prosperity, but that ‘balance’ is for the masses, not the elite. Castro died with a net worth of almost a Billion dollars while the Cuban citizens were impoverished and struggling to find food.

The work of a Dictator is hard. So many political dissidents:

The Cuba Archive project (www.cubaarchive.org) has already begun the heavy lifting by attempting to document the loss of life attributable to revolutionary zealotry. The project, based in Chatham, N.J., covers the period from May 1952 — when the constitutional government fell to Gen. Fulgencio Batista — to the present. It has so far verified the names of 9,240 victims of the Castro regime and the circumstances of their deaths. Archive researchers meticulously insist on confirming stories of official murder from two independent sources.

9,240 so far. And that is one small island. Anyone who is enamored by socialism, needs a good swift kick.

The Continuing Relevance of the Constitution


waving flagCommentary by Larry Arnn / November 28, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://dailysignal.com/2016/11/28/the-continuing-relevance-of-the-constitution/

The U.S. Constitution is the oldest document currently governing a nation. (Photo: iStock Photos)

Public policy is often exciting and urgent. When a war begins or ends, when votes are counted in an election, or when a major bill is passed, everyone senses the magnitude of the event. Some struggles end and new struggles begin. Consequences carry far into the future. Compared to this, and especially given the way we think today, the Constitution seems like a boring subject.

But how do we know whether the public policies we adopt are good? How do we know whether the results of the election will be happy? How even do we know if the war we have fought was worth it?

Those questions cannot be answered except by reference to things that are outside the immediate excitement and even our immediate needs.

These larger and more enduring things cannot be understood without understanding what we are, how we should live, how best over the long term we can achieve a good life and be free. Somehow, urgent things have to be judged in light of ultimate things.

The profoundest example of this is in our famous Declaration of Independence. The people of America decided to form their own country. It was an act of rebellion. It would carry a death sentence for many if the revolution failed, and it did carry that sentence for many in the subsequent war.

How remarkable that in this urgent moment, they would base what they did upon the “laws of nature and of nature’s God.” They were looking upward toward the eternal as they began their battle. That is one of the essential reasons why they succeeded.

How can we remember to do this kind of thinking, when so many urgent things press upon us and when hundreds of millions of us participate?

The answer is given best of all in history by the Constitution of the United States, the partner of the declaration, prefigured in its middle passages.

The purpose of the Constitution is to ground the government in the people’s authority. It is also to make both we and our government thoughtful. “It is our reason alone,” writes James Madison, “that must be placed in control of the government. Our passions must be controlled by it.”

design

Under the Constitution, it takes time to do big things: We must think before we act. The Constitution divides power across the land and between levels and branches of government; the people and the parts of the government must cooperate if anything is to be done.

To get a majority, they must give reasons—out loud and in front of millions. This encourages candor and discourages the rankest forms of partisanship.

Yes, it is still partisan, but at our best moments we are better than anywhere else. Moreover, the Constitution limits what we can do to each other, teaching us self-restraint and independence.

In recent decades, our country has suffered public policy disasters. We have fought many wars without decisive victory. We have spent many trillions without removing the problems they were designed to remove. We have become a great debtor nation with fewer reserves, even if our reserves are still great.

These facts are connected to the compromising of our constitutional practices. We have changed the way we make laws. The government is less accountable, and the laws are more numerous and impossible to understand.

We have made government more centralized, and so its proper central functions—especially defense—are starved for resources.

As the government gets bigger, the people get smaller. They are regulated in their private lives, obstructed when they strive, subsidized in many cases into failure. This is just what the Constitution was designed to prevent.

No institution has done more to describe and promote public policy from the conservative point of view than The Heritage Foundation. It was born decades ago for specifically this purpose. It has always had an interest in the Constitution.

Now, it is bringing together all of its efforts relating to that great document into the Institute for Constitutional Government, launching Nov. 29, to achieve better focus. As a friend of the Constitution and of Heritage, I am proud of this.

It can only be good. Our freedom is at stake. We will not save it without restoring our Constitution.

How Abolishing the Electoral College Would Destroy the Power of the States


waving flagAuthored by Jarrett Stepman / / November 28, 2016

Abolishing the Electoral College would radically undermine the idea of federalism. (Photo: Kim Hong-Ji/Reuters/Newscom)

Nearly a month after Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in this year’s presidential election, progressive groups and activists are attempting to undermine the result along with fundamental institutions created by the Founding Fathers.

Clinton appears to have won the national popular vote in 2016, primarily fueled by massive landslides in populous Democratic states like California and New York. This has sparked efforts to do away with the state-based and not entirely democratic Electoral College.

Though a huge part of the anti-Electoral College push is sour grapes in the wake of a surprise electoral defeat, it serves the broader interest of the progressive movement’s goal to both delegitimize the incoming administration and subvert the idea of federalism as enshrined in the Constitution.

Electoral College Worked in 2016  

The Electoral College was carefully designed by the Founders after lengthy deliberation at the 1787 Constitutional Convention. The design is this: Americans don’t cast their vote for president, but instead for electors pledged to their preferred candidate. Each state has a set number of electors based on the total number of representatives and senators. You can read about why the Founders created this seemingly complex system here.

Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, who was fairly popular with progressives just a week ago, supported the Electoral College process in Federalist 68. He said that “if the manner of it be not perfect, it is at least excellent.”

But a number of prominent Democrats have ignored Hamilton and called for an end to the Electoral College post-election.

Opponents of the Electoral College claim that the institution is fundamentally flawed. The fact that the winner of the most recent presidential contest didn’t have the highest total vote further demonstrates why it needs to be scrapped, according to their logic.

This narrative couldn’t be farther from the truth, as the issues surrounding the election prove exactly why the Electoral College is such an excellent system for the United States.

For instance, Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is leading a movement to recount votes in three key states that Trump won: Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. This was in part justified by the idea that Russia had tampered with the election.

The recount process will likely be messy, but it would be vastly more complicated if America had to undergo a national as opposed to state-level recount. Votes have trickled in for the last month, and it is possible that without the state-based system it might still be unclear who the next president would be.

As ugly as the 2016 election was, it would have been far uglier without the moderating, stable process afforded by the Electoral College.

Having states conduct their own elections is a strength of our system, not a weakness. For instance, without the Electoral College and respect for state powers, it would be difficult for America to experiment with solutions to prevent voter fraud. This should be a priority for those suddenly concerned about voting integrity.

Assault on Federalism

What is lost in the Electoral College debate is the underlying attack on America’s cherished and inherited idea of federalism.

The Founders in their wisdom designed this republic with the intent of checking ambition with ambition, and delegating specific powers to both the national as well as state governments. They created a nation in which states could operate independently, experimenting with different policies and laws to fit their people.

The elimination of the Electoral College would be just another blow to the role of the states in the American system of government. No longer would presidential candidates have to appeal to the farmers of rural Iowa alongside the bankers of urban New York. They would be incentivized to campaign directly to the interests of the largest population centers alone.

The reasoning used to abolish the Electoral College could easily be applied to some of the most important aspects of America’s constitutional republic.

If the Electoral College is simply an ancient, undemocratic, and defunct relic of the Founding, then why isn’t the Senate? After all, treating the states equally and allowing them only two senators regardless of population is silly if one thinks the states hold no special place in our system. One writer was open about this in a Washington Post op-ed calling for abolishing the states entirely.

“Times have changed, and we need to rethink the notion of the ‘United States of America,’” Lawrence R. Samuel wrote in The Washington Post. “Our states are no longer culturally diverse regions with their own respective identities; rather, they are artificially constructed geographic entities that certainly would not be formed today.”Leftist Propagandist

Samuel concluded:

A federation of states was a wonderful idea in the late 18th century, but represents an unnecessary and costly burden in the early 21st. Two layers of government—federal and local—offers a cleaner, more sensible, and much more affordable system than our current one …

picture2

This is the essential issue at the heart of the Electoral College that extends far beyond the results of a single election.

The left wants to fundamentally change the system of federalism so venerated and protected by the founding generation. But those who believe that the United States was built on timeless ideas about man’s relation to man should look to preserve the system that allowed America to rise to the status of a superpower while preserving individual liberty.

ADIOS, OBAMACARE! Trump Picks TOM PRICE As Health & Human Services Secretary (BOOM)

The outspoken critic of the Affordable Care Act has been tapped to

Georgia Rep. Tom Price (R) / Image added by WhatDidYouSay.org

be the head of the agency that will be ‘repealing and replacing’ it. Georgia Rep. Tom Price (R) has been selected as Secretary of the HHS, and that is FANTASTIC news!

Price — a former orthopedic surgeon — has been one of the strongest opponents to the Affordable Care Act and currently serves as chairman of the House Budget Committee. In a statement, Trump said Price has “earned a reputation for being a tireless problem solver and the go-to expert on healthcare policy, making him the ideal choice to serve in this capacity.”

“He is exceptionally qualified to shepherd our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare and bring affordable and accessible healthcare to every American,” the president-elect continued. “I am proud to nominate him as Secretary of Health and Human Services.”

Complete Message

Image created and inserted by WhatDidYouSay.org

Tom Price: Conservative and full of ideas:

Mr. Price, a 62-year-old former orthopedic surgeon, is one of several GOP physicians who sought to carve out a leading role in shaping the party’s health policy and, in particular, the party’s alternative vision to Democrats’ Affordable Care Act.

Much of his criticism of the law has centered on the authority it gives to the federal government, and to the agency that he may now head.

“We think it’s important that Washington not be in charge of health care,” the six-term congressman said in an interview this summer. “The problem that I have with Obamacare is that its premise is that Washington knows best.”

Mr. Price has championed his own legislation, the Empowering Patients First Act, since 2009, taking a position on a number of hot-button issues for conservative health policy thinkers. In its latest iteration, the proposal includes refundable, age-adjusted tax credits for people to buy insurance if they don’t have access to coverage through an employer or government program. People in a government program, such as Medicare, Medicaid or Tricare, would also be allowed to opt out of it and get tax credits toward the cost of private coverage instead.

Mr. Price had previously included tax deductions in his plans, a tool typically favored by harder-line conservative health-policy thinkers, but said he had “moved towards credits because we felt it was cleaner.”

The plan offers a one-time credit aimed at boosting health-savings accounts, long described by supporters as a way of bringing down medical spending, and derives part of its funding from capping how much employers can spend on providing employee health care before being taxed. The plan seeks to make health insurance available to individuals with pre-existing medical conditions by helping states set up new “high-risk” pools or other programs for such enrollees, and sets new rules allowing insurers to sell policies across state lines.

In a sharp illustration of how the federal government refuses to play by the same rules as everyone else, the Denver Sheriff’s Department has agreed to pay a $10,000 fine for making U.S. citizenship a qualification for being hired as a deputy sheriff.

The eight-page settlement agreement was signed by Sheriff Patrick Firman and Alberto Ruisanchez, the deputy special counsel in the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Justice Department.

The Sheriff’s Department agreed to not only pay the $10,000 fine, but agreed to go through all job applications received from noncitizens after Jan. 1, 2015, and offer them the “opportunity to complete the application/evaluation process for the deputy sheriff position” with “no consideration” of their citizenship status.

What did you say 02

One of the sillier requirements in the settlement agreement is that the Sheriff’s Department post “an English and Spanish version of the Office of Special Counsel ‘If You Have the Right to Work’ poster … in all places where notices to employees and job applicants are normally posted” and also to provide a copy of the poster in the “applicant’s preferred language.” You can see that poster in Arabic here. if-stupid-could-fly

You have to wonder whether the DOJ Special Counsel realizes or cares about the fact that if the English comprehension skills of an applicant to be a deputy sheriff are so poor that he requires the “OSC Poster” in his “preferred language” in order to comprehend what it says, he may have a bit of difficulty being an effective law enforcement officer—and that such poor language skills could endanger the safety of the public and the deputy.you think

The law that the Denver Sheriff’s Department supposedly violated is 8 U.S.C. §1324b, which makes it unlawful “to discriminate against any individual [except for illegal immigrants] with respect to the hiring, or recruitment or referral for a fee, of the individual for employment or the discharging of the individual from employment … because of such individual’s citizenship status.”

In other words, if someone is a noncitizen who is legally in the country and has a work authorization from the Department of Homeland Security, that person cannot be discriminated against in the employment context.you-are-a-special-kind-of-stupid

However, there are some very big exceptions. For example, Section (a)(4) specifically provides that it is not a violation of the statute to “hire, recruit, or refer an individual who is a citizen or national of the United States over another individual who is an alien if the two individuals are equally qualified.”

There is no indication that the Obama Justice Department has any evidence that any noncitizens who may have applied were better qualified than the deputies hired by Denver since Jan. 1, 2015.

There is also an exception that allows the hiring of only citizens if it is required “in order to comply with law, regulation, or executive order, or required by federal, state, or local government contract, or which the attorney general determines to be essential for an employer to do business with an agency or department of the federal, state, or local government.” The exception for required compliance with a “law, regulation, or executive order” does not say a federal “law, regulation, or executive order.”

Thus, local and state governments would seem to have the ability to get around this statute—and the attention of the Civil Rights Division—by passing a law, issuing a regulation, or executing an executive order that makes citizenship a requirement for hiring law enforcement personnel.

Given the importance of the job done by law enforcement officers throughout all levels of government to protect the public from those who would harm them, ranging from common criminals to the terrorists who have killed many Americans inside our country in recent years, requiring citizenship seems like a basic, commonsense qualification.

The federal government certainly thinks so—because it does not apply this statute to itself. If you want to be a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which often works closely with local law enforcement, including sheriff’s departments like Denver’s, the FBI website specifically says that you “must be a United States citizen.” The same is true of the U.S. Secret Service, which routinely discriminates against noncitizens in a manner that no doubt horrifies the DOJ’s Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices. The website for the Secret Service says that all candidates for employment, whether in the Uniformed Division or as special agents, “must be U.S. citizens.”

Oh, and by the way, all of the DOJ lawyers whose names are on the settlement agreement with the Denver Sheriff’s Department? They are also no doubt U.S. citizens. How do I know that? As a current job listing on the USAJOBS website for a position inside the Civil Rights Division explains under key requirements: “You must be a U.S. Citizen or National.”

If an employer hires a noncitizen legally in the country who is permitted to work, no one questions that employers should not be able to discriminate against that employee in wages, benefits, and the other accoutrements of employment. However, employers should not be prohibited from doing what is best for “the general welfare” of Americans—hiring U.S. citizens over visitors to our country, who are only our guests.

This provision of federal immigration law needs to be changed. It is a matter of basic fairness and ensuring that all Americans are gainfully employed so that they—and their families—can engage in the “pursuit of Happiness,” a fundamental truth that we hold to be self-evident.

Breaking! Muslim Terrorist Attack Unfolds on Ohio State University Campus!

In breaking news, a Middle Eastern (Somalian) 20-year old student at Ohio State University used a vehicle to intentionally  run over at least 9 pedestrians and proceeded to exit his career and “attack them with a machete”. The attack is consistent with an “ISIS style killing attack” similar to ISIS attacks which have spread across Europe. “This is one in a litany of machete/knife attacks at train stations and platforms and public places by devout and pious Muslims,” said political scientist Pamela Geller.Do you want

Less than a minute after the attack, a brave OSU police officer shot and killed the suspect. This police officer’s heroism should not go unnoticed or unreported as the mainstream media tends to do – this police officer is a testament to his/her profession and a true American hero who has protected our country from Middle Eastern terror yet again.

In a predictable turn of events, the mainstream media has thus far refused to identify the suspect as Middle Eastern and has labeled him as “disturbed” or “a college student” instead of what he is – a Middle Eastern terrorist. Avoidance of the terms “terrorist” or even reference to the ISIS style killing is yet another example of the mainstream media being part of the “fake news” they so consistently bash.

It should be noted this isn’t the first time immigrants from Somalia have attempted to attack our country this year. In April, a Somalian citizen attempted to kill Border Patrol agents 30 miles north of the U.S.–Mexico border by running them over with his truck. 

The only outlet which has even come close to calling this attack what it is, a terror attack in the heartland of America, is shockingly CBS News. The thoughts of the nation are with the students at Ohio State, the families of the victims, and the brave men and women of the Ohio State Police Department who kept this attack from being even worse.

DEAR CNN: Liberals ORDER Elector To Change His Vote Or They’ll KILL Him – Is That NEWS?

Remember all that talk about a ‘Peaceful transition of power’. That’s out the window.

Michael Banerian, an Electoral College Voter in Michigan is a young Republican that has faith in our current system. He is set to cast his ballot on December 19 for Donald Trump but has been facing very disturbing pressure to become a ‘Faithless Elector’ by changing his vote.

Watch Banerian talk about it here:  http://www.detroitnews.com/videos/embed/94019000/?fullsite=true

On Dec. 19, the 22-year-old Banerian is scheduled to join 15 other Michiganians to cast their electoral votes for Republican President-elect Donald Trump. But Trump’s opponents have deluged Banerian and other GOP electors with pleas and nasty emails to reverse course and cast their ballots for Clinton, according to the Michigan Republican Party.picture1

“You have people saying ‘you’re a hateful bigot, I hope you die,’ ” he said. “I’ve had people talk about shoving a gun in my mouth and blowing my brains out. And I’ve received dozens and dozens of those emails. Even the non-threatening-my-life emails are very aggressive.”…

…“Even if I could, I wouldn’t be remotely interested in changing my vote,” said Banerian, a political science senior at Oakland University and youth vice chair of the Michigan Republican Party. “The people of Michigan spoke, and it’s our job to deliver that message.”…

…Even if Banerian or another elector had a change of heart, other Michigan electors would just cast another vote for Trump, according to the Secretary of State’s office.

In other states, some electors could change their minds and cast votes for Clinton, a prospect that is considered highly unlikely since candidates tend to recruit diehard supporters to be electors.

An online petition on change.org signed by more than 4.3 million people is calling on the nation’s electors to vote for Clinton instead of Trump…

…While some lobbying is peaceful, other electors report receiving intimidating emails or messages, Michigan Republican Party spokeswoman Sarah Anderson said Wednesday. The Detroit News couldn’t reach several electors on Wednesday.

“Hearing from them that they are also receiving threats, I’m interested in getting a consensus from the group … and seeing if it’s something that we should report to the police,” Anderson said. “It’s obviously something that we’re taking very seriously.”

Banerian said he has not yet reported any threats to the police but is considering doing so.

But wait! There’s more!

Electors in Michigan aren’t the only ones being targeted:

Electors across the country have been barraged with phone calls and emails from voters urging them to become ‘faithless electors’ on December 19 in a last-ditch effort to block Donald Trump from the presidency.

In the US, presidents are elected by the Electoral College rather than the popular vote, where Hillary Clinton is 2.2million ballots ahead of Trump.

In most states, electors must cast a vote for the winner of their state’s popular vote or face fines ranging from around $500 to $1,000.

Other states like Arizona, Idaho, and Georgia don’t have a rule against electors going rogue…

…’It is total harassment,’ Robert Graham, an elector and chairman of the state Republican Party, told the Arizona Republic.

Arizona elector Saron Geise estimates that she has received as many as 8,000 calls and says she has stopped picking up altogether.

Some electors like Banerian hope their votes will uphold the electoral system, while others are actively trying to dismantle it.

At least six Democratic electors have signed an agreement to try to block Donald Trump from securing the presidency with 270 Electoral College votes.

Michael Baca, a registered Democrat who supported Bernie Sanders, is considering rallying behind Mitt Romney or John Kasich if that means coaxing Republican electors away from Trump.

Even if he is unsuccessful in his efforts, Baca said: ‘I do think that a byproduct would be a serious look into Electoral College reform.’

Here is Michael Baca of Colorado’s controversial scheme: http://interactive.tegna-media.com/video/embed/embed.html?id=2424913&type=video&title=Interview%3A%20Colorado%20electoral%20wants%20Electoral%20College%20to%20go%20against%20Trupm&site=73&playerid=6918249996581&dfpid=32805352&dfpposition=Video_prestream_external§ion=home

NOTE: Colorado law does have ‘pledged electors’ that are legally bound to vote with the state’s popular vote, but the penalty for becoming a ‘Faithless Elector’ is minimal.

The current Electoral College standings have Trump with 306 and Hillary at 232.

It would require a number of ‘Faithless Electors’ to drop Trump below 270, so having Hillary or a ‘moderate’ Republican win is a long shot.

The Electoral College voters aren’t suppose to pick a candidate that wasn’t on the ballot.

The Democrats are making this election into a circus because they don’t like the results.

They suddenly don’t like the Electoral College… again. Like they didn’t like it in 2000.

How far will they go?Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

They don’t like the Presidential results and want to change the final national result.

Baca is looking to throw the Electoral College votes for Hillary to a ‘moderate’ Republican.

Colorado, a state that voted Democrat would then be voting for a Republican. Is that fair to the voters there?

They want to change the final state result.

Are they going to look county by county next?

How about polling station by polling station?

Maybe house to house?

Where does it end?

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Similar To What It Was 100 Years Ago


waving flagAuthored by Michael Bastasch / 11/25/2016

URL of the original posting site: http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/25/antarctic-sea-ice-extent-similar-to-what-it-was-100-years-ago/

settled-science-600-laScientists were shocked by what they found while pouring over accounts by famous South Pole explorers from about a century ago — findings that could change the way experts think about Antarctica and global warming. Researchers found that Antarctic sea ice extent has barely changed since Ernest Shackleton’s botched expedition to map out the South Pole in 1917. Antarctic sea ice conditions in Shackleton’s day mirrored those of today, according to a new study using logs compiled by Shackleton, in addition to data from other noteworthy Antarctic forays during the early 20th Century.

Lead researcher Dr. Jonathan Day and his team were the first to calculate Antarctic sea ice conditions prior to the 1930s. Day estimates sea ice extent ranged from 3.3 and 4.3 million square miles and continued to grow into the 1950s.

Scientists have only really looked at Antarctic sea ice levels from the 1950s onward, which shows a relative decline in sea ice. But Day’s study shows current Antarctic sea ice “is just 14 per cent smaller than at the highest point of the 1900s and 12 per cent bigger than than the lowest point.”

Why is that significant? It means Antarctic sea ice has fluctuated throughout the 20th Century due to natural climatic shifts, and not man-made warming.

“We know that sea ice in the Antarctic has increased slightly over the past 30 years, since satellite observations began,” Day said, according to The Telegraph. “Scientists have been grappling to understand this trend in the context of global warming, but these new findings suggest it may not be anything new.”solid-foundation-600-wlogo

“If ice levels were as low a century ago as estimated in this research, then a similar increase may have occurred between then and the middle of the century, when previous studies suggest ice levels were far higher,” he added.

It’s more evidence Antarctic sea ice is less influenced by man-made warming than Arctic sea ice.

Arctic sea ice extent has shrunk more than 7 percent per decade since 1979 while Antarctic sea ice has actually grown about one percent per decade — despite what most climate models predicted.

A 2015 NASA study found Antarctica’s ice sheet increased in mass from 1992 to 2008. The study found ice gains in Eastern Antarctica more than offset ice loss from melting glaciers in the west.

Day’s study comes just after the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) found the collapse of a major South Pole was sparked by an El Nino during the 1940s, not man-made climate change.

The Pine Island Glacier began melting about 30 years before the modern warming trend of global average temperature that began in the late 1970s.

“A significant implication of our findings is that once an ice sheet retreat is set in motion it can continue for decades, even if what started gets no worse,” NASA’s Bob Bindschadler, a co-author of the report, said in a  statement.

BOOM: Texas Moves to Classify Attacks on Cops as Hate Crimes

Texas legislators filed a bill Monday that would make it a true hate

crime (versus a phony one) to purposely and maliciously target either police officers or first responders for execution.

“We’re going to ask that it become an emergency legislative item for the governor so that as soon as we get to Austin in January, we pass it right away, make it law right away,” State Rep. Jason Villalba told Houston station KHOU.

What made this bill especially noteworthy was that it was filed less than 24 hours after a San Antonio police officer was gunned down.

“(Detective Benjamin) Marconi was shot twice in the head while sitting in his patrol car outside of police headquarters late Sunday morning,” WFAA reported. “He was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.”supportribbon

Thankfully, the suspect in this case, Otis Tyrone McKane, was quickly identified, tracked down and taken into custody, courtesy of surveillance footage from the scene.

According to Fox News, however, three other officers across the nation were also shot Sunday in similar “incidents (that) appeared to be targeted attacks and involved law enforcement officers sitting unsuspectingly in their patrol cars, either waiting in traffic or after pulling vehicles over for traffic stops.” These three officers made it out alive.

It was clear nevertheless that changes needed to be made to the law to discourage crazed maniacs and possible “Black Lives Matter” goons from targeting police officers for execution.

“Texas will arm our prosecutors, D.A.’s and judges with every tool they need to punish to the fullest extent possible those who harm our first responders,” Villalba also told KHOU.

Until the bill became law, though, police officers in Texas had no other choice than to be on their guard.

“In the wake of the tragic ambush that occurred in San Antonio along with the other three police shootings that happened across the nation yesterday, I have reminded our officers to take extreme caution as they perform their duties and to always be aware of their surroundings and cover each other,” the Dallas Police Department’s Interim Chief David Pughes reportedly told his officers.cop-terror-600a-ci

UNREAL: American College Literally Says No To Flying American Flag


waving flagAuthored By: John Falkenberg on November 23, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://conservativetribune.com/american-college-says-no-to-flag/

Hampshire College of Amherst, Massachusetts, has decided, in the face of the oh-so-scary victory by President-elect Donald Trump, to keep the American flag from flying on its campus, according to USA Today.

Hate-based violence accusations are sky-high, so college officials decided to fly the flag at half-staff. The flag was then burned by (presumably) a student. The community was understandably furious, so the same officials decided to remove the flag so no one became further upset.

The Facebook post by Hampshire College President Johnathan Lash said it all.

“Some months ago, the Hampshire College Board of Trustees adopted a policy of periodically flying the flag at half-staff to mourn deaths from violence around the world,” he wrote on Monday. “Last week, in the current environment of escalating hate-based violence, we made the decision to fly Hampshire’s U.S. flag at half-staff for a time while the community delved deeper into the meaning of the flag and its presence on our campus.”

“This was meant as an expression of grief over the violent deaths being suffered in this country and globally, including the many U.S. service members who have lost their lives,” he explained.Leftist Propagandist

A cynic might speculate that Lash added the bit about the fallen service members to appease the community that was so outraged about the flag’s lowering.

“Our intention was to create the space for meaningful and respectful dialogue across the many perspectives represented in our community,” he wrote. “Unfortunately, our efforts to inclusively convey respect and sorrow have had the opposite effect.”if-stupid-could-fly

Only someone who has become completely surrounded by liberalism would be surprised by this consequence. Seriously — what were they thinking?

Here’s what they learned:

“We have heard from many on our campus as well as from neighbors in the region that, by flying the flag at half-staff, we were actually causing hurt, distress and insult,” he wrote. “Our decision has been seen as disrespectful of the traditional expression of national mourning, and has been especially painful to our Hampshire campus colleagues who are veterans or families of veterans.”gag me

After hearing that some community members believed that lowering the flag was a commentary on the election, Lash expressly denied it. However, what Lash claimed removing the flag was all about was pretty telling.

“We hope (taking the flag down) will enable us in the near term to instead focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors.”

Now, who could that possibly be pointed toward?definetly

SANCTUARY CITY: Releases Dominican Accused of CHILD RAPE


waving flagPosted on November 25, 2016

America has to deal with this kind of minutiae because of political correctness. It’s not PC to jail a convicted child rapist, because he is an illegal immigrant. A criminal is a criminal. They shouldn’t receive favorable treatment because they’re an illegal immigrant… who is breaking the law just by being in our country.

Hopefully Trump deports this scum ASAP! Make ‘Sanctuary Cities’ ILLEGAL Again!

By JOHN BINDER

An accused child rapist and Dominican national was released out of custody by Philadelphia police, ignoring federal immigration officials’ request to hand over the man. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released a news release describing how 40-year-old Winston Enrique Perez Pilarte, also known as Josue Duran-Cortes, was released by Philadelphia officials back in 2015 after failing to “honor” their detainer on Pilarte.

“After confirming his identity using biometric data, an ICE detainer was lodged against Perez Pilarte while he was detained at the Philadelphia Curran Fromhold Correctional Facility in July 2015,” ICE stated in the release. “On Nov. 25, 2015, Perez Pilarte was released from local custody without being turned over on the ICE detainer.”OH HELL NO

Pilarte was arrested and charged by the Philadelphia law enforcement with;

> attempted rape,

< unlawful sexual contact with a minor,

> aggravated indecent assault,

> unlawful restraint,

> endangering the welfare of a child,

> corruption of minors,

> indecent assault,

> simple assault

> and recklessly endangering another person.

DOUCHE: Kaepernick Goes From Dumb To DUMBER – Look At His T-SHIRT

Here is a close-up:

The shirt reads, ‘Great Minds Think Alike’ and has photos of Malcolm X and Communist Dictator, Fidel Castro.

The embattled quarterback, who was spotted in a T-shirt depicting Mr. Castro earlier this year, initially demurred when asked about the shirt by a reporter from the Miami Herald who comes from a family of Cuban exiles. He pointed out that the shirt also pictured Malcolm X.

I’m not talking about Fidel Castro and his oppression,” Mr. Kaepernick said on Wednesday’s press call, the Palm Beach Post reported. “I’m talking about Malcolm X and what he’s done for people.”Leftist Propagandist

But when pressed on the point, he praised the Cuban autocrat’s comparative commitment to education and criminal justice reform.

“One thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that,” Mr. Kaepernick said.What did you say 04.jpg

When the reporter rebutted that Mr. Castro broke up countless families during his half-century, one-man reign over the oppressed island nation, Mr. Kaepernick said the United States breaks up plenty of families, too.

“We do break up families here,” he said. “That’s what mass incarceration is. That was the foundation of slavery, so our country has been based on that as well as the genocide of Native Americans.”

Twilight Warriors: The Soldiers, Spies, and Special Agents Who Are Revolutionizing the American Way of War

Twilight Warriors: The Soldiers, Spies, and Special Agents Who Are Revolutionizing the American Way of War

By James Kitfield

Twilight Warriors is the untold story of the tight-knit brotherhood that changed the way America fights. James Kitfield reveals how brilliant innovators in the U.S. military, special forces, and the intelligence and law enforcement communities forged close operational bonds in the crucibles of Iraq and Afghanistan, breaking down institutional barriers to create a relentless, intelligence-driven style of operations. The result of their collaborations is a globe-spanning network that is elegant in its simplicity and terrifying in its lethality. As Kitfield argues, this style of operations represents our best hope for defending the nation in an age of asymmetric warfare. Twilight Warriors is an unprecedented account of the American way of war—and the iconoclasts who have brought it into the 21st century.

Trump’s National Security Adviser: “Islam is a Political Ideology… Hides behind this Notion of it being a Religion”!

In a speech from August that is now making waves across the gen-michael-flynncountry, president-elect Trump’s National Security Adviser designate, Lt. General Michael Flynn (retired) told the Dallas chapter of ACT! For America that “Islam is a political ideology, it is a political ideology. It definitely hides behind this notion of it being a religion.”

The comments are sure to be brought back up when Flynn goes before the Senate to testify during his confirmation hearings. However, Flynn’s personality and his public persona lead me to believe that he’s not worried about facing tough questions from hostile Democrat Senators.Islam is NOT

In his speech Flynn further commented on the differences between Christianity and Islam before making some even more controversial comments about world Islam today.

“Islam is a political ideology, it is a political ideology. It definitely hides behind this notion of it being a religion. I have a very, very tough time because I don’t see a lot of people screaming ‘Jesus Christ’ with hatchets or machetes or rifles shooting up clubs or hatcheting, literally axing families on a train.

Or like they just killed a couple of police officers with a machete. I mean, it’s unbelievable.  So we have a problem.

It’s like cancer. I’ve gone through cancer in my own life. And so it’s like cancer, and it’s like a malignant cancer, though in this case that has metastasized.

It’s like I just said in the number of attacks in 22 countries in just the last 45 days. When I look back over the last 10 years or 15 years of my life and the things that I’ve seen and the things that I’ve witnessed against this very vicious threat.

The folks at MRC TV cut video of Flynn’s speech with an interview he gave to MSNBC where the topic of discussion was Russia. In the interview Flynn explains why the current liberal stance towards Russia is all wrong – while Russia may not be a “good guy” in the narrative, they’re certainly preferable to the Muslim terrorists that we’re both fighting against.

“We have to deal with Russia,” he said. “We cannot make Russia an enemy. Russia is a nation that is deeply involved in the Middle East. Right now, the Middle East is totally unstable. We have over 5,000 of our own troops there in Iraq trying to fight the rise of ISIS.”

“Russia’s directly involved,” he said. “So we have to figure out ways to work with them instead of making them an antagonist.”AMEN

Lt. Gen. (ret.) Michael T. Flynn is President-elect Trump’s designated National Security Adviser, according to The New York Times and numerous other media, citing an unnamed top official on the Trump transition team.

Flynn, 57, is from Rhode Island. He grew up in a family of nine. He and his wife, Lori Flynn, have been married for 30-plus years. They have two sons and several grandchildren. Flynn served in the U.S. Army from 1981 to 2014 and served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Uphold Democracy and Operation Urgent Fury.

Lt. Gen. (ret.) Flynn was the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from July 2012 to August 2014. His designated position in the Trump administration does not require Senate confirmation.

QUESTION: Would ‘Loyal Giuliani’ Make A BETTER Sec of State Than ‘Traitor Romney?’

It’s like Fantasy football for political junkies. The latest matchup is for the Secretary of State position. And people are making their picks.

Newt Gingrich prefers Rudy Giuliani to Mitt Romney as a potential secretary of state, the former House Speaker said on Monday. Gingrich, emerging from a meeting with the president-elect at Trump Tower, told reporters he would support whoever Trump picked, but declared: “I think there are huge advantages to Rudy Giuliani.”

“Frankly, I think that if you want someone who is going to go out and be a very tough negotiator for America and represent American interest in the way that Trump campaigned, I think that probably Rudy is a better pick and has the right temperament,” he elaborated, according to a pool report of his remarks.

Gingrich suggested that it isn’t clear Romney was “willing to be [Trump’s] secretary of state,” and asked whether Romney “would work to make Trump Romney’s version of the presidency.”no-more-rinos

“I think they’ve got to talk it through,” he added. Romney is under “active consideration” to be Trump’s top diplomat, according to comments made by Vice President-elect Mike Pence over the weekend…

…As for Giuliani, Gingrich said, “We’re going to need somebody who is a fighter,” because “the world is not going to change just because we show up and say ‘please.’ If that was going to work, Secretary Kerry would be successful.”

What do you think?

Reward those who have stayed loyal? Or leave aside the infighting and pick someone whatever he said in the Primaries? (You might remember some of the trash-talk Romney made while being one of the leading #NeverTrumpers. It was ugly.)

On this question, what should take the priority? Building party unity so we can all be on the same page in crushing the Democrat’s ‘transformation’ of America? Or are we making an example of someone who made an ass of himself and the party in the Primaries?

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard builds image for bucking party


Gabbard builds image for bucking party / © Greg Nash

The Democratic lawmaker who met with President-elect Donald Trump on Monday is used to bucking her own party. A frequent presence on cable news, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii), 35, has made a name for herself by criticizing the administration and her own party on foreign policy and national security.

She quit her post as a Democratic National Committee vice chair to act as a surrogate for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the insurgent candidate challenging Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary. She has blasted the Obama administration for refusing to say the words “radical Islam” and voted in favor of requiring FBI background checks for Iraqi and Syrian refugees.

She also declined to back the majority of House Democrats in co-sponsoring a gun control bill this summer, instead backing a compromise bill that others in her party said didn’t go far enough.

Like Trump and Sanders, she is a vocal opponent of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. On Sunday, she participated in a rally at the Capitol against the agreement.

With that background, it’s no surprise that she’d catch the eye of Trump and his newly appointed White House adviser, Stephen Bannon.

“He loves Tulsi Gabbard. Loves her,” a source familiar with the Trump adviser’s thinking told The Hill. “She gets the foreign policy stuff, the Islamic terrorism stuff.”

Gabbard was not one of the 169 Democrats in the House who signed a letter condemning Bannon’s appointment.

“Let me be clear, I will never allow partisanship to undermine our national security when the lives of countless people lay in the balance,” she said in a statement Monday released after the meeting with Trump. It’s not clear how strong a possibility it is that Gabbard could join a Trump administration.

News reports suggest she could be up for anything from U.S. ambassador to the United Nations to secretary of State.

It’s just as possible that the meeting was a bit of optics for Trump that shows his willingness to meet with a broad spectrum of people. Trump has also met recently with Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee who was a fierce critic during this year’s campaign.

“It does show a willingness to reach across the aisle, and on top of that, a different wing of the Democratic Party,” said Alex Ward, a defense expert at the Atlantic Council.

In her own statement about the meeting, Gabbard emphasized the need for people with different political views to talk to one another — particularly over national security issues such as the Syrian civil war.

“While the rules of political expediency would say I should have refused to meet with President-elect Trump, I never have and never will play politics with American and Syrian lives,” she said.

The Army National Guard major and Iraq veteran also said she wanted to impress on Trump the need to avoid being dragged into another war.

“I felt it important to take the opportunity to meet with the President-elect now before the drumbeats of war that neocons have been beating drag us into an escalation of the war to overthrow the Syrian government,” she said.

Gabbard has criticized the Obama administration for not being aggressive enough against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which the U.S. has been fighting since 2014. She also has been a staunch opponent of U.S. military action against the Syrian regime under President Bashar Assad, seeing it as a potential open-ended quagmire and a distraction from going after Islamic extremists.

In the meeting with Trump, Gabbard said she shared her “grave concerns that escalating the war in Syria by implementing a so-called no fly/safe zone would be disastrous for the Syrian people, our country, and the world.”

Trump has also voiced concern for getting involved in the Syrian civil war, saying it could lead to war with Russia and that the U.S. should focus on ISIS instead.

Outside observers said they could see a scenario where Gabbard could be a part of a Trump administration.

“Tulsi Gabbard has emerged as a somewhat prominent critic of the hawkish consensus,” said Cato Institute defense expert Benjamin Friedman.

He suggested she could be a better fit for Trump’s foreign policy than figures such as John Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Bolton has also been mentioned for various posts in a Trump administration.

Former Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway praised Gabbard after the meeting, saying the lawmaker and Trump found they had a great deal in common during the meeting. She also praised Gabbard for bucking her own party.

Muslim Leader in America: “Islam is not here to Integrate. Islam is here to Dominate”!


waving flagAuthored By Tim Brown November 21, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://constitution.com/muslim-leader-america-islam-not-integrate-islam-dominate/

islam-is-here-to-dominate-1200x630At least there is one Muslim in America who is open and honest about what Islam is and what it is here for. No taqiyya, no mincing of words. Islam is here to dominate.

Haitham Ibn Thbait, of the American chapter of Hizb Ut-Tahrir, told American Muslims earlier this year that Islam was not here to integrate, but rather to dominate.

“The Prophet said: ‘There is no god but Allah,’ said Thbait. “Instead the [elites of Mecca] rejected. They offered the Prophet wealth, status, and political representation – a seat on the executive branch within Mecca’s secular order – all to avoid this statement and its implications. Yet he rejected their offers and continued his journey towards radical change, providing us with step-by-step instructions on how to make this religion supreme.”

“The elites of Mecca would use every possible measure to coerce or contain Muhammad‘s call for change within specific parameters,” he added. “Those parameters would permit the changing of anything that did not threaten their system and infringe on their power. But this message is not here to integrate. It is here to dominate. Islam is here to dominate! This was an ideological struggle, the sole purpose of which was to organize Man’s affairs in accordance with a system revealed by Allah.”

“There was no room for compromise,” Thbait continued. “Instead Allah revealed to the Prophet, saying: ‘Proclaim openly, as commanded, and turn away from those who associate others with Allah.’ ‘Proclaim openly, as commanded by Allah’ – this is our activism. It is free of polytheism, the polytheism of a secular system. Activism within a flawed infidel system is forbidden.”

Christian Persecution

Image added by WhatDidYouSay.org

There is definitely a problem with polytheism in our land, but Islam will not help that since it is a flawed ideology that thrives on death, not life, and because it is an anti-christ religion at its heart. 

He then said:

You cannot raise your hands to Allah, while extending your hands to men for legislation. Every four years, you do just that. Muslims are pressured to get out there and vote, believing somehow that their insignificant numbers have an impact. The effort to get Muslims out there to vote has never been about their significance. It is part of an effort to assimilate Muslims.

They have tricked Muslims into voting for Clinton, who went on to starve half a million children in Iraq to death. They tricked Muslims into voting for Bush, who went on to bomb two Muslim countries and kill millions. And they went on to trick Muslims to vote for Obama, who bombed seven Muslim countries and killed millions.

The argument used was always the “lesser of evils.” So now, killing millions of Muslims is a “lesser evil.” “What is the matter with you? How do you judge?” [Quran 68:36] The ballots have brought you nothing but disgrace, and have soaked you with the blood of your Muslim brothers and sisters. The problem with their system is not the scores of dead. It is deeper than that. It is their secular faith. It is in direct opposition with our creed, when Allah says: “Legislation belongs to none other than Allah.”

Muhammad and his companions established for us a political system where sovereignty belongs to Allah and not to the elites, where politics meant caring for the affairs of Mankind, not only the elites, where da’wa was conveyed to the whole of society, not only to the oppressed and excluding the elites. This system was not for the 99% or the 1%. This system was for the 100%. For those of us in the West, Allah granted us the opportunity to be amidst a people so misinformed that the truth we offer will resonate. Our voice is our greatest weapon, and our silence is our worst enemy.


They want to entice you and intimidate you into embracing their way of life. They want to change our Islam We are not their puppets. We are a cure and a mercy. We carry a comprehensive system of solutions for Mankind, and we should act accordingly. Muslims in the West are a part of this struggle. We should not underestimate our impact in this global effort. We need to be honest about who we are, what our global program is, and advocate for the system of Islam, wherever we may be, and explain it to Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Don’t fall into the electoral trap.America are you really paying attentionIslam is NOT
Some of what he says is true. This idea of being used is very true, not only of Muslims, but of many in our society. However, Islam does not offer truth. It offers lies. As for killing Muslims, perhaps one should follow the blood trail left by Islam, not just in this century, but in the previous nine!

While I do admire his conviction, it’s placed in the wrong thing. I wish more Christians understood their divine mandate and obeyed it (Matthew 28:19-20). I wish they understood that Christians are ambassadors for King Jesus and that He is dominating the world through the message we are to be teaching others (1 Corinthians 15).AMEN

Sadly, American Christians many times can’t even get the basics of the Gospel right. It is because we have lost our saltiness that we are being trampled underfoot in America (Matthew 5:13). May God renew us, even as He did Samson (Judges 16:28), and either cause our enemies to bow to Him or destroy them before us.AMEN

John Kerry Announces “Solidarity” with the World’s Transgender Community


waving flagAuthored by Josie Rudd, November 21, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://minutemennews.com/27025-2/

kerry_57positionsJohn Kerry wants everyone to know that the United States stands in “solidarity” with the transgender community around the world.

The Washington Examiner reports – Secretary of State John Kerry honored the memory of transgender individuals who lost their lives to “senseless acts of violence” on Sunday and said the U.S. stands in “solidarity” with the community around the world.

“Transgender persons around the world are targeted by rising levels of violence fueled by hatred and bigotry,” Kerry said in a statement recognizing Transgender Day of Remembrance. “This is a global challenge and we all must do more to protect transgender persons on the basis of equality and dignity.”

He said that in the U.S., the Constitution “enshrines freedoms of peaceful assembly, speech and association, and it affirms that everyone has equal protection under the law.” 

“Around the world,” he added, “human rights and fundamental freedoms are recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that every person is born free and equal in dignity and rights. Every person includes transgender women, transgender men, and other individuals who face marginalization on account of their gender expression or gender identity.”more

Isn’t it interesting with which groups the Obama administration has sworn solidarity?  Here are some other examples:  with Intersex individuals, over immigration reform, with Syrian refugees.

  • But, they feel no solidarity with parents of children who do not wish to have them share bathrooms/locker rooms with members of the opposite sex??
  • They feel no solidarity with Americans who are fearful of they myriad of threats posed by undocumented, hastily screened illegals and/or refugees??

    transgender-argument

    Image added by WhatDidYouSay.org

To say that this administration is out of touch with the pulse of everyday America is an understatement.  This is not to say that we should tolerate violence, hatred or bigotry.   But, it could be argued that the push for ‘human rights’ for transgenders (as for illegals or for refugees) has degraded human rights for the majority of the population.

The definition of solidarity is  “unity or agreement of feeling or action, especially among individuals with a common interest; mutual support within a group.”  Perhaps John Kerry should pay a little more attention to the definition of the word.  Because, in recent times, the best example of true solidarity was the solidarity displayed by average Americans, when we acted as ‘individuals with a common interest’ to deny the continuation of these insufferable (even unconstitutional) policies and opinions.more-forced

Why Jeff Sessions, ‘an Advocate for the Constitution,’ Has Conservatives So Excited


waving flagAuthored by Fred Lucas / / November 18, 2016

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., will be soon be facing a confirmation hearing in the Senate after President-elect Donald Trump announced Friday he would nominate Sessions for the job. (Carlo Allegri/Reuters/Newscom)

As attorney general, Jeff Sessions could go a long way toward reversing the politicization of the Justice Department that occurred under the Obama administration, Republican senators and conservative activists said Friday, after President-elect Donald Trump announced he is nominating the Alabama Republican senator for the nation’s top law enforcement job.

“Sen. Sessions’ solid understanding of the Constitution and firm commitment to the rule of law is exactly what the Justice Department needs,” Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in a statement. “I have worked closely with Sen. Sessions on the Judiciary Committee over these past six years and I have every confidence that he will make a great attorney general for all Americans.”

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, commended the Sessions nomination and excoriated the Justice Department under the controversial leadership of Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.

“A principled and good man, he will restore honor to a department that, under President [Barack] Obama, perpetually pushed a political agenda while neglecting to enforce the law,” Cornyn said in a statement.

“He will restore honor to a department that, under President Obama, perpetually pushed a political agenda,” @JohnCornyn says.

“For nearly eight years the Justice Department has twisted the Constitution and the laws passed by Congress to further the president’s liberal agenda, eroding our liberty in the process,” said Cornyn, also a Judiciary member. “It has put politics ahead of national security, and demonized those who protect us. It’s time to end the politicization of the Justice Department and start defending the rule of law, and I’m confident that as our top law enforcement official Senator Sessions will do that.”

During the Obama administration, Holder fended off an investigation into the Operation Fast and Furious gunwalking program, and was found in contempt of Congress for refusing to provide thousands of documents to congressional investigators.

Holder and Lynch also launched controversial investigations into police departments across the country. More recently, Republicans questioned potential Justice Department interference into the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

Bumpy Confirmation Ahead?

In the 1980s, Sessions was a U.S. attorney and was nominated but not confirmed to a federal judgeship. So, this will be the third time Sessions will face a Senate confirmation.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, is “confident he would be reported favorably out of the committee” because of his legal background.

“Sen. Sessions is a respected member and former ranking member of the Judiciary Committee who has worked across the aisle on major legislation,” Grassley said. “He knows the Justice Department as a former U.S. attorney, which would serve him very well in this position.”

However, this time it still might not be easy. Among the liberal groups opposing the nomination is the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.

“This nomination is deeply troubling to Americans who care about equal protection under the law,” the organization’s president Wade Henderson said in a statement. “Throughout his tenure in the Senate, Sen. Sessions has been one of the chamber’s leading antagonists of immigrants and the LGBT community, continuing his long record of obstructing civil rights that began in his tenure as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Alabama.”Leftist Propagandist

The confirmation hearing will be missing one Republican on the Judiciary panel—Sessions.

The committee’s top Democrat, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., said the hearing is of particular importance because Trump “has proposed religious tests, a return to torture, and a deportation force that threatens to remove millions of immigrants.”

“Sen. Sessions and I have had significant disagreements over the years, particularly on civil rights, voting rights, immigration, and criminal justice issues,” Leahy said. “But unlike Republicans’ practice of unprecedented obstruction of President Obama’s nominees, I believe nominees deserve a full and fair process before the Senate. The American people deserve to learn about Sen. Sessions’ record at the public Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.”gag me

The confirmation should be swift, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who asserted he strongly supports Trump’s nomination, and noted Sessions’ record of working with Democrats such as Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, and the late Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy on major legislation.

sess02

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was rumored to be under consideration for the attorney general’s job. However, Trump’s leading Republican presidential primary opponent expressed strong support for Sessions.

“Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination as attorney general is great news for all of us who revere the Constitution and the rule of law,” Cruz, a Judiciary member, said in a statement. “I have been honored to work with Sen. Sessions on many of our nation’s most important issues over the last four years. Sen. Sessions has had an extraordinary career in government and law enforcement. He has been an exemplary senator for the state of Alabama, and I am confident that he will be an exceptional United States attorney general.”

Conservative Activists Excited

A former Sessions colleague, Jim DeMint, now president of The Heritage Foundation, said Sessions will defend the freedom and safety of Americans as attorney general.

“No one will work harder than Jeff Sessions to defend the freedoms and safety of all Americans as attorney general. He is not intimidated by the liberal media or the Washington establishment,” DeMint said in a statement. “He has the courage and the proven record to take on special interests. He is passionate about defending the Constitution and the rule of law to protect the rights of everyone. Jeff has been such a great friend to me and many others, becoming one of the most respected leaders in the Senate and should easily be confirmed.”

Conservative activists, such as Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin, were also excited by the news, noting the DOJ’s leftward shift under the Obama administration.

“For eight years under President Obama, the Justice Department prioritized politics over the rule of law,” Martin said. “Under Sen. Sessions, we know the rule of law will finally be paramount again with our nation’s highest-ranking law enforcement officer. We look forward to supporting Sen. Sessions during his confirmation process and working with him once he takes the oath of office as our next attorney general.”

Sessions’ record as U.S. attorney, Alabama attorney general, and in the Senate makes him a strong nominee, said Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America. She added the nomination speaks well to Trump’s commitment to conservative principles.

“The thousands of members of Concerned Women for America around the country will urge senators to move quickly in the new year to confirm Sen. Sessions as the next attorney general, so that we may start rectifying many of the asphyxiating policies pursued by Attorney General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch,” Nance said in a statement. “The attacks on religious freedom and freedom of conscience in general, for example, must be atop of the list.”AMEN

Sessions has been a strong conservative advocate and is an indicator potential future appointments, said Frank Cannon, president at American Principles Project.

“On life, education, religious freedom, sound money—really, across the board—Sen. Jeff Sessions has proven himself to be an advocate for the Constitution and for the hardworking people of this great nation. We expect he will do an excellent job as attorney general,” Cannon said.

DEAR TERRORISTS: Get Ready To Meet Your Virgins – The WEST Is Coming For YOU


waving flagPublished on November 19, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://clashdaily.com/2016/11/dear-terrorists-get-ready-meet-virgins-west-coming/

Oh NO! Trump is taking an aggressive stance against Terrorists!

Rev. Peter Mullen responds to the BBC’s hand-wringing over the appointment of Gen. Flynn:gen-michael-flynn

General Michael Flynn has been offered the post of national security adviser in Donald Trump’s administration. Flynn is a senior intelligence officer and during the election campaign he was vociferous in his denunciation of Hillary Clinton, even leading the chants for her to be locked up.

He is also a long-standing critic of Obama’s military policies – or what he regards as the lack of them. In particular he has called for a fiercer response to Islamic State.

He is on record as having said, “It’s rational to fear Muslims.” On the BBC’s Today Programme, the presenter Nick Robinson described Flynn’s statement as “controversial.”

So that’s the BBC’s assessment of what counts as controversial!

How so when for decades Muslims have been shooting, bombing, dispossessing and otherwise terrorising people in large numbers on three continents?

But the left wing establishment – that politically correct amalgamation of politicians, senior churchmen and huge sections of the media – insists that we shouldn’t notice the slaughter. As a priest in the Church of England, I wish we would adopt the attitude and policies of some of our best forebears.

Read more: Breitbart UK

Some of your best forbears? Of whom does he speak? England’s own KINGS have gone to war… Lead the battle, even, in the European pushback and response to Islamic Empire Building. Is THAT the example he means? We call those the Crusades, but people forget that they were more a response than an aggression.

Which ‘Best forbears’ do you mean? Surely we could agree to include Winston Churchill among them? Is that fair?

Becuase Churchill had something to say about Islam:

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die: but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science—the science against which it had vainly struggled—the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.Islam is NOT

And about the ideology itself:

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedanism law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property–either as a child, a wife, or a concubine — must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. —BreitbartAmerica Never Forget

Maybe he’s more inclined to siding with OTHER English forbears. Maybe people like Neville Chamberlin, with that very ‘valuable’ piece of paper and his announcement that he’d spoken with a foreigner and was promised we could have ‘peace in our time’.

Actually… that seems about right.

How HISTORY will judge this preference, we shall see. As for the rest of us, we have greater confidence in the judgment of SIR Winston Churchill than the disgraced Mr. Chamberlain.

LET Europe whine and grovel before those who would gladly conquer and destroy them.

QUESTION: Liberals & Islam HATE ‘Mad Dog Mattis’ – Does That Mean He’s PERFECT For Sec Of Defense?


Published on November 21, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://clashdaily.com/2016/11/question-liberals-islam-hate-mad-dog-mattis-mean-hes-perfect-sec-defense/

Is this guy — so thoroughly anti-pc and packing a badass resume — exactly the man we need serving in the role today?

Retired Marine Gen. James “Jim” Mattis has emerged as a strong candidate for secretary of defense, according to reports out of New York City…

…The outspoken general, born in Washington State, has a plethora of experiences in the Marines, and served in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. His military resume was so impressive, he was floated as a possible presidential candidate in 2016…

…Mattis is seen as being very experienced with Islamic terrorists and insurgents. He once told a group of surrendered Iraqi officers that if they messed with him, he would kill them all.

This is the Mattis mystique. It’s why his nickname is “Mad Dog.” It’s also why another nickname he has is the “warrior monk.”

With Mattis, Trump supporters get an updated version of another four-star general, George Patton, the Army legend who helped drive the Germans out of North Africa, Sicily and France during WWII.

Patton was known for his salty language, his colorful rhetoric, and his occasionally politically incorrect behavior, such as slapping a soldier.

Mattis, 66, is far less controversial, but his quotes are just as compelling. According to the Daily Beast, Marines even have a Twitter hashtag for them: #Mattisisms.

DISGUSTING: THUGS Shoot 4 Police Officers In Four Cities – COINCIDENCE?

And all were ‘ambush-style’ attacks.

There has been a rise in the shooting of police officers in 2016.

Three of the officers had been conducting traffic stops when they were targeted, but a fourth was just sitting in his marked car.

SAN ANTONIO, TX:end-of-watch

San Antonio police officer was shot to death during a traffic stop Sunday in what the department’s chief described as a targeted killing similar to recent police shootings in Dallas, Texas, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana…

The shooting occurred in front of police headquarters before noon, McManus said. Marconi had just pulled over a driver on the south side of the building and returned to his patrol car to write a ticket when the suspect pulled up behind him.

The suspect walked up to the patrol car driver window and shot the officer in the head, McManus said. The suspect then reached through the open window and shot him a second time, McManus said.

After the shooting the suspect returned to his vehicle and drove away.

SANIBEL, FL:

The gunman fled the scene and was eventually located in the Dunes neighborhood where a shootout ensued between the man and responding officers…

…The officer involved was shot in the shoulder and taken to the Lee Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.

Officer Ciccone has been a member of the Sanibel Police Department for a number of years.

In fact, in May of last year, he was named Officer of the Year by the Lee County Bar Association for using a defibrillator to save a woman’s life.

ST. LOUIS, MO:again-and-again

“He was targeted because he was a police officer,” Mayor Francis Slay said at a press conference at Barnes Jewish Hospital. “He didn’t stop anybody. He didn’t point a gun at anybody.”

Police said the sergeant, 46, had been shot twice in the face and was conscious. He was in critical but stable condition and expected to live. He is a 20-year veteran of the department.

The shooting in St. Louis comes on the same day that a police officer in San Antonio was shot to death while writing a ticket. Also, a police officer in Sanibel, Fla., was shot and wounded as he conducted a traffic stop Sunday evening. And late Sunday, a police officer and a suspect were shot during a traffic stop about 10:30 p.m. in the Kansas City suburb of Gladstone, Mo. That officer is expected to recover; no information on the shooter was available.

When police arrived at the shooting scene in St. Louis, the sergeant was sitting in his SUV, his seatbelt was fastened and his gun was holstered.

“He didn’t have time to react to this threat,” Police Chief Sam Dotson said.

A source told the Post-Dispatch that the sergeant said a car had pulled up beside his SUV and the officer thought the driver was going to ask him a question. Instead, the person in the car fired at the officer.

GLADSTONE, MO:

support_policeA Gladstone police officer shot during a traffic stop Sunday night is out of surgery and expected to make a full recovery, police say. The officer was shot Sunday evening around 10:34 p.m. during a traffic stop at NW Vivion Road and U.S. 169.

According to Kari Thompson with the Kansas City Police Department, which is conducting the investigation, a Gladstone officer stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation at Vivion Road and U.S. 169. Police say the passenger ran from the vehicle and Gladstone officers pursued the suspect on foot.

As officers attempted to take the suspect into custody a struggle ensued. During the struggle, the suspect displayed a handgun, shots were fired and the suspect,who is described as a man in his late teens, was fatally wounded.

A Gladstone officer was also shot, but sustained non-life threatening injuries. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

The numbers continue to rise on the shooting deaths of officers, but not in the line of duty, those numbers are actually falling:

Shooting deaths of law enforcement officers spiked 78 percent in the first half of 2016 compared to last year, including an alarming increase in ambush-style assaults like the ones that killed eight officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, according to a report released Wednesday.

However, data from the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund shows that firearms-related deaths of officers in the line of duty are still lower than they were during previous decades like the 1970s.

What gives? Are we looking at a ‘War on Cops’? The continuing vitriol that is spewed from the left at law enforcement officers is poisoning the public perception of cops. Officers are increasingly being viewed as racists who are using their ‘power’ to harrass, intimidate and out-right murder black people for sport.Epidemic of racism

It’s disgusting, and cops are now wearing a target when they put on their uniforms. The cops are now the ones being targeted and murdered just for being cops.

This has got to stop.

Washington AG Claims that Religious Expression Must Remain Inside the Person


waving flagAuthored By Michael Ware November 18, 2016

URL of the original posting site: http://constitution.com/washington-ag-claims-religious-expression-must-remain-inside-person/

We have all lived under a delusion. Many if not all Americans CP 01thought that our First Amendment Right to freedom of religion covered the exercise of religion.

Apparently, we have all been wrong. Our freedom of religious expression must be contained within ourselves, and this freedom cuts off once you have a business.

We have found this to be the case as Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson argued his case before the Washington State Supreme Court. He was defending the verdict of the law suit against florist Baronelle Stutzman.

Christian News reports

Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson told the court that Baronelle Stutzman of Arlene’s Flowers may believe what she wishes in her heart and mind, but cannot live out her convictions when it comes to a public business.

“Ms. Stutzman for her religious expression is free to believe what she wishes,” he argued. “But when she engages in public accommodations and avails herself of the protections and benefits that come with being a business, there are of course responsibilities that flow from that.”words of another christian hater

Would this mean that a Muslim restaurant owner must sell pork if a customer wanted a Cuban sandwich? What about a Jewish deli? Would they be required to slaughter a pig if a customer asked?

No, this is foolish.

This same Attorney General would demand the opposite he has demanded of Stutzman. He would stand and say that this was an infringement of the Jew’s and the Muslim’s rights.

The point that is at issue is the fact that the left, including Ferguson, wants to punish those who disagree with them on this issue. Lawsuits are a means of coercion. It is the first step in moral and ethical conformity. You believe what they say, or you pay the price.

EXCLUSIVE: Venezuelan Diplomat Joins Chicago Communists Plotting Trump Resistance

The Chicago branch of Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER) met in Chicago’s northwest side neighborhood of Albany Park to plot their next move in their resistance of the Trump presidency. Chicago ANSWER was one of the radical leftist groups that helped to organize anti-Trump protests when his campaign tried to hold a rally in March; that rally was canceled after protesters clashed with attendees. As TheDC reported last week, the group is responsible for organizing rallies in Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., San Francisco and Albuquerque.

Since holding those rallies, the group has announced “mass marches” on Inauguration Day in Washington and another one in Chicago on Saturday; the group hopes to “shut the streets down” at both rallies.mob-rule-tyranny

On Nov. 15, the group held a meeting to plot its next move in its ongoing resistance of the Trump in a space normally operated by the Mexican Solidarity Network, a less well-known group in the mold of La Raza.

CHICAGO ANSWER organizers, Stephanie and Mika, co-chaired the evening and Mika said he was also an organizer with the Party for Socialist and Liberation, a radical Marxist group and a frequent partner of ANSWER.

Mika fired up the crowd.

“What do want?” he yelled at the crowd.

“Justice,” the crowd roared back.

“When do we want it,” he screamed again.

“Now,” the crowd roared even louder.

“People can and must be organized in a deepening resistance,” Stephanie said. “As united as possible, as militant as possible.” She also said she was willing to “work with anyone to resist this administration.”Partyof Deceit Spin and Lies

Stephanie said Hillary Clinton used “sexist fear” to get elected but was still “fighting the right wing by any means necessary.”Leftist Propagandist

Jesús Rodríguez-Espinoza is the Counsel General for the Venezuelan consulate in Chicago and while the rest of the speakers accused Trump of the normal litany of grievances — that he’s a racist, homophobe, misogynist and charlatan — Rodriguez said his diplomatic position forbade him from weighing in on Trump.

“Because of my diplomatic position, I’m going to be very careful about what I’m going to say tonight,” Rodriguez-Espinoza said.

“Before I was the Counsel General in Chicago, I was a regular citizen in Venezuela just like you, in 2002, was moved in my basement because of the attack against Hugo Chavez. Because of that I started getting involved in politics.” Rodriguez-Espinoza said he became a supporter of Chavez after that.

Rodriquez-Espinoza also claimed the current economic and humanitarian crisis in Venezuela is over-blown. “All the humanitarian crisis that you hear in the media most of that is an exaggeration. The only crisis we face is destabilization in Venezuelan oil. I’m not saying everything is perfect; I’m just saying it’s overmagnified because it’s in the interest of the most powerful countries in the world to get rid of the progressive government in Venezuela.”Leftist Propagandist

According to a June Guardian story, Venezuela has an economic crisis where Gross Domestic Product is contracting by 8 percent, unemployment was at 17 percent, and the inflation rate was at 482 percent.

“When I came to the United States I adopted this country as my only home. I was so little,” Said Holly, a Morton College — a community college in the south suburbs —student who said she was part of Obama’s executive amnesty program the Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA). “My children they’re all scared thinking they’ll go back to Mexico even though they are citizens. The only thing I can tell them is nothing is going to happen, but inside I have that fear. I don’t know what he (Trump) can do to me since I’m in the DACA program.”

The Facts About the Dakota Access Pipeline That Protesters Don’t Want You to Know

–>

For more than three months, thousands of protesters, most of them from out of state, have illegally camped on federal land in Morton County, North Dakota, to oppose the construction of a legally permitted oil pipeline project that is 85 percent complete.

The celebrities, political activists, and anti-oil extremists who are blocking the pipeline’s progress are doing so based on highly charged emotions rather than actual facts on the ground.

This 1,172-mile Dakota Access pipeline will deliver as many as 570,000 barrels of oil a day from northwestern North Dakota through South Dakota and Iowa to connect to existing pipelines in Illinois. It will do this job far more safely than the current method of transporting it by 750 rail cars a day.

The protesters say they object to the pipeline’s being close to the water intake of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. However, this should be of no concern as it will sit approximately 92 feet below the riverbed, with increased pipe thickness and control valves at both ends of the crossing to reduce the risk of an incident, which is already low. picture2

Just like the companies that run the 10 other fossil-fuel pipelines crossing the Missouri River upstream of Standing Rock, Energy Transfer Partners—the primary funder of this pipeline—is taking all necessary precautions to ensure that the pipeline does not leak.

But even if there were a risk, Standing Rock will soon have a new water intake that is nearing completion much further downstream near Mobridge, South Dakota.

From the outset of this process, Standing Rock Sioux leaders have refused to sit down and meet with either the Army Corps of Engineers or the pipeline company. The Army Corps consulted with 55 Native American tribes at least 389 times, after which they proposed 140 variations of the route to avoid culturally sensitive areas in North Dakota. The logical time for Standing Rock tribal leaders to share their concerns would have been at these meetings, not now when construction is already near completion.picture3

The original pipeline was always planned for south of Bismarck, despite false claims that it was originally planned for north of Bismarck and later moved, thus creating a greater environmental danger to the Standing Rock Sioux.

The real reasons for not pursuing the northern route were that the pipeline would have affected an additional 165 acres of land, 48 extra miles of previously undisturbed field areas, and an additional 33 waterbodies.

It would also have crossed zones marked by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration as “high consequence” areas, and would have been 11 miles longer than the preferred and current route.

North Dakotans have respected the rights of these individuals to protest the pipeline, but they have gone beyond civil protesting. Though these protesters claim to be gathered for peaceful prayer and meditation, law enforcement has been forced to arrest more than 400 in response to several unlawful incidents, including trespassing on and damaging private land, chaining themselves to equipment, burning tires and fields, damaging cars and a bridge, harassing residents of nearby farms and ranches, and killing and butchering livestock. There was even at least one reported incident where gun shots were fired at police.

The recent vandalization of graves in a Bismarck cemetery and the unconscionable graffiti marking on the North Dakota column at the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., are examples of how the protesters’ actions do not match their claims of peaceful demonstration.

Equally disturbing is the meddling by the Obama administration in trying to block this legally permitted project through executive policymaking. This has encouraged more civil disobedience, threatened the safety of local residents, and placed an onerous financial burden on local law enforcement—with no offer of federal reimbursement for these increasing costs.dr-evil

All that remains for the pipeline project to be completed is for the Army Corps of Engineers to issue a final easement to cross the Missouri River at Lake Oahe. With no legal reason remaining to not issue it, I am confident the Trump administration will do what’s right if it’s not settled before President Donald Trump takes office.

The simple fact is that our nation will continue to produce and consume oil, and pipelines are the safest and most efficient way to transport it. Legally permitted infrastructure projects must be allowed to proceed without threat of improper governmental meddling.

The rule of law matters. We cannot allow lawless mobs to obstruct projects that have met all legal requirements to proceed.

An article in Time called President-elect Donald Trump’s transition “chaotic,” while The New York Times asserted that Trump’s transition team is plagued by “discord” and “disarray.” Politico quoted an anonymous insider saying the transition team was having a “knife fight” when it comes to filling Cabinet posts.

If very recent history is a guide, it might be too early to tell whether the Trump transition is any more or less organized than that of other president-elects, since nearly all recent presidents going back to at least Jimmy Carter made Cabinet announcements in December, with a handful of exceptions.

During a conference call with reporters Thursday, Trump transition team spokesman Jason Miller said the incoming administration isn’t rushing the Cabinet decisions.

“The president-elect will be announcing specific Cabinet positions, as well as key administration staff, when those decisions are made,” Miller said. “The focus of the administration is putting together the best team. It is not an arbitrary time table. It is about getting it right.”

“It does make me laugh at all the stories you guys are writing about, ‘Oh, the transition team is in disarray.’” @Raul_Labrador says.

In response to some of the media coverage, Trump tweeted the transition was a “Very organized process taking place as I decide on Cabinet and many other positions. I am the only one who knows who the finalists are!”

The Associated Press reported late Thursday that Trump had offered retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn the job of national security adviser. The position is not a cabinet post, but has traditionally been one of the highest ranking jobs in any administration.

Among names to being considered for the Cabinet are either former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Trump loyalist, and Trump critic former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are being considered for secretary of state, while Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Trump’s chief GOP primary opponent, is reportedly under consideration for attorney general.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, a former Alabama state attorney general and U.S. attorney, met with Trump on Thursday, and a transition team press release said Trump is “unbelievably impressed” with his record.

Richard Nixon was the last president to name his entire Cabinet during the first six weeks after being elected, according to Fox News.

Winning an election amid a financial crisis in 2008, President-elect Barack Obama made his first cabinet announcement, Timothy Geithner for secretary of treasury, on Nov. 24.

Aside from that, Obama’s earliest announcements came on Dec. 1, with Hillary Clinton as secretary of state pick, Janet Napolitano as his selection secretary of homeland security, and Eric Holder as his choice for attorney general. Obama also announced that same day he would keep Bush Defense Secretary Robert Gates on board.

Obama abandoned later December announcements, such as plans to name Tom Daschle to lead the Department of Health and Human Services, and making Bill Richardson commerce secretary. Announcements for those jobs came in early 2009 after controversies—demonstrating a less than smooth transition.

Former Obama adviser David Axelrod tweeted, “Lots of reasons to be concerned about @realDonaldTrump transition but the pace of announcements isn’t one of them. That’s not fair.” After some reaction, Axelrod later tweeted Thursday, “We hadn’t made any major appointments at this point in 2008. I don’t remember being criticized for it.”

December announcements for president-elects have been the general rule for Cabinet announcements for all recent presidents going back to at least Carter, according to the U.S. Senate.

There were other rare exceptions.

President-elect George H.W. Bush, having been vice president for eight years, announced Nov. 9, 1988, that his longtime confidante James Baker would be secretary of state.

Later that month, Bush also announced that Ronald Reagan’s Attorney General Richard Thornburgh, Reagan Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady, and Reagan Education Secretary Lauro Cavazos Jr. would remain in their posts. This made for an easier transition than most.

“All changes and all transitions are in disarray,” Craig Shirley, a presidential historian and bestselling author, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. “This is a big job to change governments. Ronald Reagan had a rocky transition. Bill Clinton had a very rough transition. John F. Kennedy’s transition was very controversial after he announced his brother would be attorney general.”

Nevertheless, CBS News noted, “The White House is still waiting to receive a list of relevant names from Mr. Trump’s transition office so that individuals can begin interfacing with relevant agencies between now and January 20.”

While another New York Times piece remarked, “He may not yet have nominated a single Cabinet member, or sent emissaries to the federal agencies, or held a news conference as president-elect, but Mr. Trump does have a presidential inaugural committee lined up.”Leftist Propagandist

The Trump campaign planned less before the election than 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney, whose preemptively transition plotting didn’t work out, Rep. Raúl Labrador, R-Idaho, told reporters Wednesday.

During a Conversation With Conservatives gathering sponsored by The Heritage Foundation, Labrador said:

“Donald Trump wanted to win the election rather than spend all his time talking about the transition. In fact, I was with him when one of his team members started talking about the transition and he said, ‘I don’t want to talk about this, I don’t want to jinx this. I want to move forward and talk about how we’re going to win this election.’ I appreciate that. It does mean it delays the transition by a little bit. But it does make me laugh at all the stories you guys are writing about, ‘Oh, the transition team is in disarray. Blah, blah, blah.’ It’s a difficult job to transition from a campaign to being the chief executive of the United States. Let’s give him an opportunity to be successful.”

President George W. Bush announced his first Cabinet secretary nominations on Dec. 16, 2000, somewhat later than previous presidents because of the prolonged post-election that year, with the news that Colin Powell was his choice for secretary of state.

On Dec. 20, 2000, Bush made four more announcements, including Paul O’Neil as his pick to be treasury secretary, and others before the end of the year. Bush finished with three more announcements on Jan. 2, 2001.

President-elect Bill Clinton announced his first Cabinet pick, Lloyd Bentsen as treasury secretary, on Dec. 10, 1992. A day later, he announced Donna Shalala as his pick to lead the Department of Health and Human Services and Robert Reich to be labor secretary.

On Dec. 11, 1980, Reagan announced his choices of William French Smith to be attorney general, Caspar Weinberger as defense secretary, Richard Schweiker as secretary of health and human services, Malcolm Baldridge to be commerce secretary, Andrew Lewis as transportation secretary, and Donald Regan as treasury secretary.

On the same day, Reagan also announced his choice of William Casey to lead the CIA and David Stockman to be the director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Carter announced that Cyrus Vance was his choice for secretary of state on Dec. 3, 1976, and made subsequent announcements later in the month.

Today’s Really Feel Good Story: “Armed Citizen Who Saved Cop Had Gun TAKEN AWAY, Then Was Given This…”

screen-shot-2016-11-17-at-5-45-55-pmAfter saving a cop’s life during a violent attack, this armed citizen had his gun taken into evidence. The process could take months, years… and could also leave him without a gun. One gun store owner heard the story and did something pretty amazing. Check this out.

By law, the concealed carry owner lost his weapon to the investigation, and since it will be stored as evidence, it’s unlikely that he’ll ever get it back, at least not anytime soon. He was now defenseless after saving an officer’s life unless he pays to replace the pricey weapon out of his own pocket. However, one gun store had a better idea in mind.

To show appreciation for his bravery and the unwavering respect this man showed for police, who have people’s backs every day, Shoot Straight gun store owner Mark Williams in Fort Meyers had a special offer. He called Bardes’ police department three days after the incident and made arrangements for the civilian hero to come to his store and pick out any concealed carry gun he wanted.

The brave civilian ended up making a great choice, selecting a Springfield XDS, and he is now armed and safe again, thanks to the generosity of Shoot Straight. It’s awesome to see Americans honor police and heroes who have their backs after so much disrespect has been shown toward law enforcement officers from our current president who supports the lawlessness of Black Lives Matter. Thugs are in for a big surprise from President-elect Donald Trump, who isn’t going to make excuses for their criminal behavior and will ensure they get the punishment they deserve.
