Trump Jumpstarts “Project Gray Wolf” Striking Fear Directly to KJU


Reported By Steven Beyer | December 28, 2017 at 9:45am

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/trump-jumpstarts-project-gray-wolf-striking-fear-directly-to-kju/

In a $110 million dollar contract, Lockheed Martin has announced that it will begin working on a program simply known as “Project Gray Wolf.” This contract will create the first weapon of its kind, swarming missiles, that is sure to strike terror into the hearts of the United States enemies, including North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.

According to the U.K. Daily Mail, the missiles, “will be a low-cost missile with built-in networked, collaborative behaviours – or, swarming behaviours.”

In essence, these missiles will be able to communicate to each other. Pretty darn cool.

The missiles will initially work with the F-16 fighter jet, but will work with other planes as well. The F-35, F-15, F-18, B-1, B-2 and B-52 aircraft will all eventually get this new technology.

Advanced Missiles Program director for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control Hady Mourad told the Daily Mail:  “(O)ur system is being designed to maximize modularity, allowing our customer to incorporate advanced technologies such as more lethal warheads or more fuel-efficient engines, when those systems become available.”

In addition to missiles that swarm, Lockheed Martin is also creating a high-powered fiber laser for fighter jets. This is literally almost something you would see from a “Star Wars” movie. According to Daily Mail, “the new laser system would allow fighter jets to take down targets from the air, in contrast to previous systems, which were mounted on vehicles or ships.”

Under a $26.3 million contract from the Air Force Research Lab, Lockheed Martin plans to develop “a directed energy system for aircraft, with plans to test the technology by 2021.”

Lockheed Martin has had success with similar ground based systems, now the company is moving toward developing that same technology for airborne systems. While all of this seems pretty amazing, the “swarm” missiles won’t be ready until 2019 while the laser weapons for aircraft are looking at a much later date.

Regardless, as phones, TVs, and even cars become “smarter,” rest assured, you’re going to see that happen with our weapons systems all the more. Having missiles that can communicate with each other is some pretty amazing technology.

As Trump continues his presidency, look for more technological advances as well as a stronger military. If there’s one thing we know about President Donald Trump, it’s this: He wants our military to be the best trained and best equipped military in the world, and will do whatever it takes to make it happen. “Project Gray Wolf” does just that.

Video: Bro Hands Out Bibles In Public – Then The MUSLIMS Show Up

The Muslim guy is bold enough to openly threaten the life the man handing out Bibles publicly.

Un-freaking-believable.

Just a few minutes later, the man had the table overturned and was attacked by several men.

Coincidence?

Probably not. 

It’s so strange to me that the ‘tolerant’ leftists are so keen to jump to the defense of the intolerant Muslims. Come to think of it, it’s not really a surprise. Leftists aren’t tolerant either.

ISIS By The Numbers: Trump’s Progress Against Terror Group Is Absolutely Staggering


Reported by Saagar Enjeti | Reporter | 5:57 PM 12/27/2017

The U.S.-led military campaign under command of President Donald Trump has made dramatic progress against ISIS in 2017. ISIS retains historically low numbers of fighters, controls little territory and has lost much of its command and control facilities in Iraq and Syria. The vast majority of the military progress against the group occurred in 2017.

“During 2017 over 60,000 square kilometers were liberated from ISIS across Iraq and Syria,” British Army Maj. Gen. Felix Gedney told the Pentagon press corps Wednesday, explaining that “more than 98 percent of the land once claimed by the terrorist group has been returned to the people.” This estimate means ISIS lost nearly 60 percent of the territory it once controlled in 2017.

Gedney added that 4.5 million Iraqis and Syrians were liberated from ISIS by the U.S.-backed coalition in 2017 out of the 7.7 million total since the military campaign began in 2017. Gedney’s estimate indicates approximately 60 percent of total freed civilians were liberated in 2017.

Success against the terrorist group has been so rapid the U.S.-led coalition estimates only approximately 1,000 ISIS fighters remain on the battlefield across Iraq and Syria. This number is particularly striking given a 2014 CIA estimate of up to 31,500 fighters for the terrorist group.

The 1000 remaining fighters are largely isolated in various desert pockets besieged from the air by U.S. aircraft and probed by U.S.-backed fighters on the ground. Gedney also boasted that nearly 130 “ISIS leaders or high value targets” were killed by the coalition in 2017 alone.

The loss of territory, population under its control, and leaders has choked off ISIS from many of the oil fields it once relied upon to gleam revenue from and thrown a wrench in its propaganda efforts.

Western security officials also fear the threat of returning ISIS foreign fighters and the continued ability of the terror group to inspire attacks. New York City saw two ISIS-inspired attacks since November despite the major losses for the group.

Three Huge, Totally Unexpected Surprises to Look for in 2018. Check Washington’s conventional political wisdom — then look the other way to see where U.S. is headed in next 12 months


Reported by Mark Tapscott | Updated 28 Dec 2017 at 9:00 AM

Here are three leading examples of the conventional wisdom among Washington’s political experts about what will happen in 2018:

  • Democrats will ride a “blue wave” of congressional campaign victories to retake control of Congress, gaining majorities in the Senate and the House of Representatives.
  • Only the richest Americans will benefit economically from passage of President Donald Trump’s tax cuts, as the stall in middle-class prosperity continues.
  • Special counsel Robert Mueller will indict a host of former Trump campaign and administration figures — then the chief executive himself will be impeached and convicted by the blue wave Democratic majority in Congress.

Now here’s what will actually happen next year:

There won’t be a blue wave. In New York magazine’s Daily Intelligencer blog, Ed Kilgore captures the conventional wisdom’s assumption about next year’s midterm elections, saying that even if Roy Moore had somehow eked out a victory in Alabama, “It is impossible to take an honest look at the overall pattern of 2017 contests without hearing the not-so-distant rumbling of a likely 2018 wave for Democrats.”

Forget the Democrats’ blue wave. There are three reasons it won’t happen. First, Democrats will have to defend 25 Senate seats (26 if Minnesota’s Al Franken actually resigns), compared to only eight for the Republicans. Half a dozen of those Democrats are running in states Trump carried handily in 2016.

Second, Doug Jones wins in Alabama only by running against Moore in 2017. Democrats are too obsessed with identity politics to permit another Jones to win their primaries in other states in 2018. There are no more Blue Dogs capable of winning because the Democratic base views “moderation” as selling out to the White Racist Supremacy Hegemony, whatever that is.

Third, Roy Moore, the fatally flawed candidate, lost the Alabama Senate race, not populist conservative views. Democrats just don’t get that. There will be many more Republicans on the Tom Cotton model in coming years. Moore, like 2017’s snow in Houston and Galveston, is a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Put it all together, and this calculus means Democrats will more likely lose Senate seats, not gain them. And the House will be a disappointment for them as well, with very minimal gains at best. Some of us remember a similar Republican optimism going into the 1998 midterms.

Middle America prospers big-time in 2018. Now, about the economy, it has been axiomatic among the Washington elites since 1978 — when Congress enacted the Steiger Amendment cutting the capital gains tax and thereby provided a perfect predicate to the Reagan individual tax cuts in 1981 — that “only the rich benefit” from reduced federal levies.

As the Institute for Policy Studies’ Josh Hoxie put it, shortly before the Trump tax reforms were approved by Congress without a single Democratic vote, the measure represents “the biggest wealth grab in modern history.”

Similarly, the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities — the gold standard for conventional liberal Democratic economic analyses — insisted the Trump reform’s corporate tax cuts won’t help individuals “because workers would only receive a quarter or less of the benefits from tax cuts. And among those workers, it’s likely the higher earners that would benefit.”

Wrong. There are two key reasons why middle-class Americans will benefit enormously beginning in 2018.

  • First, even the reliably liberal Tax Policy Center conceded, according to Vox, that “the bill would reduce taxes for Americans in all income groups in 2018 — increasing after-tax income by an average of 2.2 percent.”

That means millions of middle-class earners will keep thousands of dollars of added income every year for the next eight years. True, the amount will steadily decrease as 2025 approaches and the reductions are planned to expire, but billions of dollars in additional spending, plus job growth and continued consumer confidence, mean significantly heightened prosperity for Middle America, beginning in 2018.

  • The second reason Middle America will see big economic gains is the Trump reform’s treatment of state and local tax deductions (SALT). Prior to 2018, high-tax blue states and localities didn’t have to worry about imposing too heavy taxation, since their residents could deduct the levies. But Trump caps the deduction at $10,000. That cap will speed up the out-migration from blue states, especially New York, California and Illinois. Millions of people in recent years have left high-tax states and moved either south or west, but especially to Texas, which has for a decade been an engine of economic growth for the whole country.

As the Daily Signal reported in February 2017: “Over the past decade, New York has suffered a net loss of nearly 1.5 million residents and over 650,000 Illinoisans have moved elsewhere. Meanwhile, Texas, a right-to-work state with no income or estate tax, saw its population grow by 1.3 million.”

Capping the SALT provision of the federal tax code will accelerate the blue state out-migration, sending millions more people looking for new jobs and opportunities in growing, mostly red, southern and western states. Most of them will be middle- or lower-income earners seeking to move up.

No blue wave means no Trump impeachment. If, as predicted above, Democrats fail to regain a congressional majority, there obviously won’t be a serious impeachment effort against Trump. Where will that leave Mueller’s Russia collusion investigation? Mueller may be occupied with his own problems come spring 2018.

Watch for the report of Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz on the FBI, the Clinton email investigation, and the infamous “tarmac meeting” between former President Bill Clinton and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Horowitz has a history with the FBI and some of his former colleagues at the Department of Justice. He rallied 45 other IGs in 2014 to demand the FBI, DOJ, and multiple other agencies stop routinely violating the 1978 law giving them unlimited access to all federal documents. Congress did as Horowitz demanded. It was the FBI that especially raised Horowitz’s ire, as seen in this 2015 letter to Congress. The FBI director at the time was … James Comey.

Horowitz is a straight-arrow, tough-minded investigator, not unlike John Sopko, the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction, who has repeatedly blistered U.S. politicians and military leaders while exposing colossal waste, fraud and corruption. Nobody in either party will be spared when Horowitz releases his report.

No Joke, College Offers “Queering The Bible” Class?!


Reported by 

URL of the original posting site: https://fearandblood.com/unreal/no-joke-college-offers-queering-bible-class/

College Professor Attempts To Make The Bible More LGBTQ Friendly.

The Bible, the holy book that guides millions of people worldwide. Many take comfort in the scripture and weekly lessons that are doled out from it via sermons. The Bible has been translated numerous times throughout the ages making the word of god more accessible to all. But now a liberal teacher, Gwynn Kessler of Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, has found a way to tarnish it. The teacher plans to hold a class called “Queering the Bible.” 

Queering the Bible is a class that will supposedly “destabilize long-held assumptions about what the bible–and religion–says about gender and sexuality.” The class will be looking at the scripture that is aimed at LGBTQ oriented people as well as reinterpreting the Bible in new ways such as this controversial statement: “If we can point out places in traditional writings where God is nurturing, forgiving, and loving,” the course description asks, “does that mean that God is feminine, or female?”

“Queering the Bible” is scheduled for the fall of 2018. The class will cover controversial gender topics while picking apart the bible.

Dr. Robert Jeffress, the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas and a spiritual advisor to President Trump, warned about the spiritual dangers of twisting God’s word. “In suggesting that God is ‘queer’ Swarthmore College is guilty of nothing short of modern day idolatry BLASPHAMY,” Jeffress said.

When you read the Bible you will discover that God reserved His harshest condemnation for individuals and nations that practiced idolatry – creating an imaginary god who conformed to a culture’s immorality,” Jeffress said.”

There is nothing wrong with discussion and classes focusing on the bible. It’s the dissecting, cherrypicking, and trying to revise the Bible to be more LGBTQ friendly that’s the issue. The bible is a holy book recognized by millions it should be treated with respect as such.

College course teaches students about ‘queering the Bible’

Class ‘destabilizes long held assumptions’ about what’s in the Bible; university refuses to comment

Swarthmore College is offering a course next year that will survey “queer and trans* readings of biblical texts” by using “queer and trans* theoretical approaches,” with faculty staying silent on the specifics of the course material.

“Queering the Bible” is set to launch next fall and will be instructed by Gwynn Kessler, an associate professor of religion, according to Swarthmore’s course catalog.

The course, which is being offered through Swarthmore’s Religion Department, promises to “[introduce] students to the complexity of constructions of sex, gender, and identity in one of the most influential literary works produced in ancient times.”

“By reading the Bible with the methods of queer and trans* theoretical approaches,” the catalog advertises, “this class destabilizes long held assumptions about what the bible–and religion–says about gender and sexuality.”

It appears that the Swarthmore Religion Department will offer no other Bible-centric courses next fall apart from this one. Out of around ten listed courses that explicitly involve Bible study at Swarthmore, “Queering the Bible” appears to be the only one taking place in fall of 2018. Only one other Bible-related course, a class teaching the grammar and vocabulary necessary to read the Old Testament in the original Hebrew, is offered during that time.

Repeated attempts by The College Fix to learn more about the course, and whether or not any additional Bible courses would be offered at Swarthmore next year, were met with silence. Multiple emails to Gwynn Kessler and the Swarthmore Religion Department, as well as phone calls to both, were not returned.

According to her faculty profile, Kessler’s research focuses in part on “rabbinic constructions of gender and identity.” Her work is also “situated within, and suffused with, postmodern, feminist, and queer theoretical approaches.”

In addition to “Queering the Bible,” Swarthmore College’s religion department also offers “Queering God: Feminist and Queer Theology,” a course that “examines feminist and queer writings about God, explores the tensions between feminist and queer theology, and seeks to stretch the limits of gendering-and sexing-the divine.”

“If we can point out places in traditional writings where God is nurturing, forgiving, and loving,” the course description asks, “does that mean that God is feminine, or female?”

Change in Border Guard Behavior Means NK Collapse Could Be Closer Than We Think


By John Falkenberg | December 26, 2017 at 7:41am

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/change-in-border-guard-behavior/

Last month, the world saw an extremely well-documented flight by a North Korean soldier from his home country to the South. He was shot at by his former comrades, and severely wounded.

More recently, however, another defector made the dash across the DMZ and the elite troops meant to protect the most isolated nation on earth from southern invaders gave a reaction that is even more telling, and possibly indicative of major change to come.

At the time of the defection, which took place Thursday, according to the U.K. Daily Mail, the elite guards of dictator Kim Jong Un’s regime did nothing. Not a single shot was fired, and according to writer Don Surber, such mild reaction could well be indicative of major change ahead.

“Is North Korea about to collapse?” he asked in a recent opinion piece.

“I ask this because it seems like Kim Jong Un’s most elite troops — the ones he places along the border with South Korea — no longer protect that border,” he continued.

“If people figure that out, they will start walking south by the dozen, then hundreds, then thousands. We saw that happen in 1989 when East Germans began crossing the Austro-Hungarian border to freedom unmolested.

“Two years later, the Soviet Union — which had survived World War II — was no more.”

What followed then could well follow now. North Korea certainly doesn’t possess the collective will of Great Patriotic War-era Russia. This man isn’t the only one to escape peacefully month, either. As The Daily Mail reports, two North Korean fisherman were found requesting asylum in waters off South Korea.

It’s worth pointing out that the most recent defector escaped under cover of fog. Also, the North Koreans did mount a search for the man — and drew warning shots from South Korea in the process. But there’s no getting around the fact that the defection took place without injury to the defector. And that can’t make the dictatorship in Pyonyang very happy.

But let’s put all of that in context, here.

North Korea is speeding up its work on gaining the ability to launch a nuclear attack against the United States. President Donald Trump and our military are fully aware of that, and will take action to protect the United States as necessary. There have to be some elements of the North Korean military who are aware of that.

Could it be that this uncontested defection is an indication of something bigger — something representative of the mindset of a portion of the North Korean military? It might be sloppiness. It might be something deeper.

Time will tell.

CBS Attempted Hit Job Against Tax Bill, But All 3 Families Discovered Something


Reported By Cillian Zeal | December 26, 2017 at 10:20pm

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/cbs-hit-job-tax-bill/

Before the Republican tax bill was passed, the media narrative focused on how it would only benefit the wealthy. Once it was passed (after a bit of procedural drama for good measure), that narrative went into overdrive. No matter what statistics or examples the GOP may have pointed the media toward, that was the story, and they were sticking to it. However, as our second president pointed out, facts are stubborn things — even more stubborn than media outlets are.

CBS found out the timeless sagacity of Mr. Adams’ advice the hard way.

After the tax bill passed, the network decided to run a segment that looked at how three separate American families from three different parts of the country would fare under the Republicans’ new tax plan. The original idea, one would assume, was to highlight the inequality therein.

Instead of the hit job one assumes some were looking for, however, CBS found that all three families ended up saving money.

The first profile was of Marcie George, a single mother who rents a home in Cary, North Carolina.

“It didn’t seem as they were going along like it would really affect someone like me,” George said.

An administrative assistant, George makes under $40,000 a year. “Financially, I struggle,” George said. “I live paycheck to paycheck. I make things work, I readjust and rearrange, but we do get by.”

Remember that we were told incessantly by the left that Ms. George and her child were going to be the kind of people who would get the shaft under the GOP tax plan. So, how did things end up for her? Pretty well, we’d say: over $1,300 saved, in part thanks to the child tax credit doubling.

Amber and Jason Edwards, a couple from Providence, Rhode Island, are slightly higher up the tax bracket than Ms. George is. Homeowners who are married without children, the educators took in a combined $150,000. While the Edwardses would pay taxes on $12,000 more of their income, according to CBS’ accountant, they would end up saving money based on the lower tax numbers, saving the family $650. They would also switch to the standard deduction, meaning a simpler return.

“Honestly, I’m a little surprised,” Amber Edwards said, turning to her husband. “What you had said, initially, you thought we were going to have a higher tax bill.”

And he was wrong.

Meanwhile, Melissa and Layne Lev of Fresno, California have three children and own their home and a small business. They too thought their taxes were going to be higher, although Melissa had trouble explaining why she thought this was. They make roughly $300,000. Even though they’re from a high-tax state — one where most individuals likely think that they’re going to get hit hard by the reduced state tax deductions — they ended up saving money too.

They’ll be receiving $13,000 in tax cuts, thanks to receiving child tax credits and not paying the alternative minimum tax.

Can you imagine the tears in the CBS newsroom as the results poured in? It’s like a mini-election night all over again!

So, yes, as much as this is apparently just a tax cut for the rich, everyone — the Georges, the Edwardses and the Levs — will be seeing money back thanks to tax reform. And these are hardly modern-day Vanderbilts, either, meaning this is money that’s going to be going directly back into the economy.

Talk about a Christmas present for everybody. Unless you’re part of the Democrat caucus, of course.

Holiday Retail Sales Highest in Six Years


Posted by    Tuesday, December 26, 2017 at 2:00pm

“Fueled by high consumer confidence and a robust job market, U.S. retail sales in the holiday period rose at their best pace since 2011”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bip4oupPFmg

It’s more blessed to give than to receive and Americans did an awful lot of giving this holiday season.

A longer holiday season between Thanksgiving and Christmas and a full weekend just before Christmas helped fuel higher sales than recent years past.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Fueled by high consumer confidence and a robust job market, U.S. retail sales in the holiday period rose at their best pace since 2011, according to Mastercard Spending Pulse, which tracks both online and in-store spending.

Sales, excluding automobiles, rose 4.9% from Nov. 1 through Christmas Eve, compared with a 3.7% gain in the same period last year, according to the Mastercard Inc. MA -0.15% unit, which tracks all forms of payment. E-commerce continued to drive the gains, rising 18.1%.

“It started with a bang in the week leading up to Black Friday,” said Sarah Quinlan, a senior vice president of marketing insights at Mastercard. She added that retailers benefited this year from Christmas Day falling on a Monday, giving shoppers a full weekend to scoop up last-minute purchases. Dec. 23 ranked next to Black Friday in terms of spending, according to Mastercard.

“Overall, this year was a big win for retail,” Ms. Quinlan said.

That newfound buoyancy is a relief to retailers—from department-store giants like Macy’s Inc. to mall favorites like Gap Inc.—that struggled through a difficult year of store closures, declining foot traffic and bankruptcies by chains including the Sports Authority, Toys ‘R’ Us and Payless Shoes.

For retailers, the shopping season isn’t over. Pushing massive discounts, stores are hoping to lure shoppers back in for post-Christmas deals with the hope of besting their Black Friday numbers:

The New York Post reports:

From Amazon to Nordstrom to Old Navy, an increasing number of outlets are offering fresh sales after the Christmas rush to lure consumers before their spending hibernation.

“A lot of people are going to be returning things, so I feel like it will be cheaper,” said teacher Ronny Rahman, 35, as he strolled Fulton Street in Brooklyn on Monday. “I feel like now is a good time to get it.”

Beginning Tuesday and extending through Jan. 2, Nordstrom will offer new sales on clothing and accessories both in stores and online.

Old Navy is touting price cuts of up to 70 percent after Christmas, and e-commerce king Amazon plans a slew of special deals in the coming days.

Retail experts have projected robust holiday sales this year with a booming stock market, a rosy economic outlook and the prospect of impending tax cuts.

Retailers are casting a wide net to ensnare shoppers expected to head right back to the local mall to return unwanted items or to use gift cards.

But, just in case we need a reminder of what Christmas is all about, here’s Linus to remind us:

Some Real Talk For Conservatives About 2018


Reported by Kurt Schlichter | Posted: Dec 18, 2017 12:00 AM

We conservatives need to get our heads right about the mid-terms or liberals will end up guzzling patriot tears and their gloating will be flat-out intolerable. We’re not doomed in 2018 – I mean, it’s not like tax reform or pulling out of the Paris Climate Scam, which have already killed millions of people, including me and you. But, if we fail to get on course for victory then we’re going to see Nancy Pelosi and the Gropeocrats back in charge and trying to make America into California.

Trust me. You do not want to live in the United States of California.

So, the first step toward victory is some real talk about us normals – you know, conservatives who are more concerned with our country than with muttering about principles and trying to sell cruise cabins. We need to talk about how we’ve screwed up and how we need to change what we’re doing wrong. We got lazy after we vanquished Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit and installed what has turned out to be the most conservative president since St. Ronald. We had the House, and we had the Senate, so we relaxed. Sure, we’ve gotten some great things done, but every step has been a battle thanks to the enraged Dems, their lying media pals, and that cheesy bunch of Never Trump weasels who are motivated by rage at how we dissed them and their Conservative, Inc., cronies. The enemy is creating a sense of permanent chaos, and they intend to present themselves as a return to normality. Vote for us liberals and everything goes back to normal,” they’ll lie. They’ll actually amp up the insanity with impeachment shenanigans and obstruction, and they’ll probably bumble their way into provoking a short and hilarious civil war.

We have to stop them, but stopping them starts with us fixing what we’re doing wrong. We can only change ourselves, so we need to do that.

Yeah, I know the Democrats are awful – don’t you read my sensational columns and follow my outstanding Twitter feed? But we’re not talking about them now.

Yeah, I know the liberal media is composed of lying creeps who to serve as Chuck Schumer’s steno pool when they aren’t awkwardly harassing the interns since they aren’t capable of winning themselves women like real men. But we’re not talking about them now.

Yeah, I know the Trumpaphobic True Conservatives™ are desperately trying to regain their power and prestige after we rejected them along with the rest of the Jeb!-loving Establishment Fredocons who never managed to conserve anything except the cash they raked in falsely promising to fight, fight, fight. But we’re not talking about them now.

We’re talking about us now. Let’s talk about what we did wrong. Let’s talk about what we need to change, because if we don’t change The Swamp is going to swamp us. Our opponents are motivated. They are organizing. They are targeting the weakest Republicans, and in Virginia and Alabama they snatched seats we should have kept or taken. 

In Virginia, we had a huge, bloody primary fight that left the winner weak going into the general. Ed Gillespie is an Establishment meat puppet, but he would have been okay, and “okay” is better than any commie Dem. We need to pick our fights. Here’s a news flash – the most conservative candidate won’t win every time. We need to figure out who is the most conservative candidate who can win, and back him/her – that’s the old Buckley rule. The purge of the squishes must come later. We need raw numbers, and if that means accepting the occasional Susan Collins, fine. She’s the closest thing to a win in Maine, so accept that and move on.

In Virginia, the Democrats nearly took the legislature by identifying vulnerable seats, sneaking in with money, tech, and logistics, and pushing turn-out of motivated pinkos. They caught us napping. That’s their plan in 2018 too – but now we know the score. We need to identify our vulnerabilities and start building our defenses – and we can also to identify their vulnerabilities so we can snatch some Democrat seats in Trump country. That means we need to give money and time and not do the grumbly I’ve got the madz and the sadz at how the GOP isn’t perfectly conservative so I’m staying home, darn it, and ensuring the Democrats win thing. 

We’ll never get 100% of what we want. Ever. Deal with it. So, John McCain torpedoed the Obamacare repeal? I guess the rational response is to let the libs run rampant, right? Sheesh. Stop being a pouty teen, man up, and get back in the fight.

I get mad too. I’m furious with the Elderly Mutant Establishment Turtle. But I’m an adult, not a child, and sometimes I have to delay my unholy vengeance. We worry too much about purging our ranks and not enough about making sure we still have ranks to purge. Oh, the accounting shall come – we will have our revenge. But today we need to keep control of Capitol Hill so Donald Trump can keep packing the courts, gutting the bureaucracy, and winning the war against jihadi dirtbags.

We can wait to get even.

Exhibit A is Roy Moore. Face it – we screwed that up bad. He was a terrible candidate, and terrible candidates lose. Let’s concede he was treated unfairly by the lying media. Gloria Allred and her scuzzy minions lied about him. Team McConnell spent a ton of much-needed money trying to force a GOPe stooge down Alabamians’ throats so The Tortoise wouldn’t have to deal with the uppity Mo Brooks. Maybe there was some voter fraud. All that’s irrelevant. 

Roy Moore was a terrible candidate from the beginning, and when it became clear he was wounded we should have rebuffed his selfish determination to stay in the race. I don’t care if he was innocent. That’s not the point. I don’t care about Roy Moore – he, like every politician, is expendable. He should have dropped out right away because he became a liability. When he wouldn’t, we had to support him or write off a winnable seat, wasting money and credibility because Humility Boy decided Jesus was on his side (Narrator: But Jesus was not on his side).

We owed Roy Moore nothing – he owed us loyalty, which he failed to show when he refused to drop out and make way for an undamaged candidate. His determination to make this race about “clearing his name” cost us a Senate seat. If he wanted to clear his name, there were courtrooms for that. Instead, we got stuck with a guy we knew was a doofus even before he admitted he was a skeevy doofus.

Weird candidates lose. The claims of illegality against him are shaky, but based on his own admissions, the best case was this guy scammed on high school girls in his thirties. Okay, legal or not, that’s going to turn people off. And it did –Republican turn out tanked because when your argument is, “Well, my creeping on teens was technically legal,” you’re going to lose votes.

Oh, and it’s not just that he was a Class A Strange-o. Let’s not forget his awful campaign. While the Democrats were crunching numbers and working the data, Roy was disappearing for days at a time and then riding to the polls on Sassy the Wonder Horse. Perhaps more GOP voters would have turned out for someone who neither checked out the local cheerleader action nor shopped at Elmer Gantry’s Big Warehouse of Redneck Stereotypes.

Yeah, Moore was still better than that baby-killing advocate Doug Jones, but Luther Strange would have won. Mo Brooks would have won. Sassy the Wonder Horse would have won. Moore lost. We need to stop nominating losers.

We have a lot of Senate races coming up. I like some of the more conservative folks – Dr. Kelli Ward in Arizona, Austin Petersen in Missouri. But here’s the thing – if they, fairly or not, allow themselves to be marginalized such as they are less likely win the general than their GOP primary opponents, I’ll toss them over. Nothing personal, just business. It’s their job to win, and we don’t owe any politicians loyalty to back them if they can’t complete that basic task. This is a performance-based endeavor and even though we like them, if they aren’t the ones most likely to win then they need to go. This is about winning. Period.

The lessons are clear. We need to understand that our enemy is serious, motivated and intent on finding and exploiting the weaknesses in our candidates. We need to be ruthless in deciding who is most likely to win, even if it means backing someone who is 80% with us instead of 90%. It means being coldly rational instead of over-heatedly emotional.

We need to win the midterms next year. We need to get our heads right to do it. Yeah, our enemies are horrible and politics is unfair. Boo hoo. We can’t change that. The only thing we can change is ourselves, and we need to or we’ll get crushed.

Mom Gives Age 11 Son Christmas Present, Boy Breaks Down after Opening the Box


Reported By James Russo | December 25, 2017 at 5:00am

URL of the original posting site: https://www.liftable.com/james-russo/mom-gives-age-11-son-christmas-present-boy-breaks-opening-box/

The holiday season is a time for celebration and giving thanks for the blessings we’ve received. For those experiencing loss, this element of the season can be hard to accept. In the most joyous time of year, some people are at their most depressed. For them, the cheery attitude and celebratory atmosphere only remind them of what’s missing from their life.

One family knows what this feeling is like, and they shared their story with Love What Matters, accompanied by a video.

“Our family lost twins in June 2016,” the post began.

“We all took it hard, but my son took it especially hard, not able to understand why this was happening when he wanted to be a big brother so badly,” the matriarch of the family wrote.

Above the post, the video showed an 11-year-old boy opening a Christmas present. The boy struggled with the twine on the package, then ripped off the wrapping paper to find a Harley Davidson box. He opened it with excitement.

“Bubble wrap! Yay!” he exclaimed as he pulled the wrapping from the box.

When he looked in the box a second time, at what was hiding below the bubble wrap, his smile faded. As you watch the boy’s face, you can see it transform as he starts to understand what is inside.

After 15 months of trying again, we finally got pregnant with our Rainbow baby. We told our son, by wrapping up a framed sonogram picture,” the post read.

After a few moments of staring blankly at the sonogram, the boy broke down. He looked up at his mother with tears in his eyes before covering his face and sobbing.

“His reaction was heartwarming and more than I expected,” the boy’s mother wrote in her Facebook post. The recording ended abruptly after the young boy began to cry.

“I couldn’t record anymore at the end,” she wrote. “I had to go and sit on the floor with him, and cry together.”

She concluded her post by writing: “This baby is going to have the best big brother in the world, even with an 11.5 year age gap. I have a feeling they will be the best of friends.”

THE WONDERFUL SILENT MAJORITY OF VETERANS WITH FULL SACRIFICE, INTENT, AND PURPOSE REVEALED. AND, WITHOUT THE MEDIA EXPOSURE THEY SO WELL DESERVE AND HAVE NOT RECEIVED.    

You’ll never see this picture on the front of Time Magazine, or any

other magazine for that matter.

Neither will you see it going viral in FaceBook or sent and re-sent through the Internet — and yet, it should be … Photo of the year!

We see lots of pictures of wounded male veterans, but women vets get wounded and maimed too.  You may need to take a second, closer look though.  The first thing I saw was a bunch of beautiful smiles.

Study this picture again.  Let the story it tells sink in. These women and many others, as well as their male comrades, paid this price for our freedom.  And, they did it for less than what welfare recipients are paid.

There is more patriotism and class in those 11 ladies than the majority of members of Congress and all other occupants off the seats of government agencies, combined!!!

And a HELL of a lot more than those over-paid athletes who choose to “take a knee” when the National Anthem is played!!!  

These ladies risked injuries and many who are not in the picture died for America.

GOD BLESS ALL OF THEM !!! Let’s see if this goes viral.

Full Investigation into Obama Admin Launched by Congress After Hezbollah Report


Posted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com | on December 22, 2017

Earlier this week a scandalous report, published by Politico, alleged the Obama administration interfered with a DEA investigation into Hezbollah — called “Project Cassandra” — and ultimately sabotaged the whole project so Obama could pass his Iran Nuclear Deal.

Due to this report congressional leaders are launching an investigation into the Obama administration and their intrusion into Project Cassandra. Several congressional officials confirmed in a report to The Washington Free Beacon that an investigation has started into these allegations.

“Lawmakers will be paying particular attention to whether [National Security Council official Ben Rhodes] or other senior officials accused of misleading Congress and the American public about the Iran deal played a role in thwarting the Hezbollah investigation,” the Free Beacon reports.

The report continued that congressional investigators “are already preparing letters to various U.S. government agencies in order to obtain greater information about the alleged interference.”

House Oversight Committee member and chairman of its National Security Subcommittee, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), said top Obama administration officials could be implicated: “I’ve long believed that the Obama administration could not have done any more to bend over backwards to appease the Iranian regime, yet news that the Obama administration killed the investigation into a billion-dollar drug ring that lined the terrorist group Hezbollah’s pockets in order to save its coveted Iran deal may very well take the cake. Hezbollah is a brutal terrorist group with American blood on its hands and it would be unconscionable for American policy to deliberately empower such a nefarious group. Congress will be investigating this thoroughly and my National Security subcommittee will be particularly interested in how such a decision came about and whether it was driven by key Iran deal architects such as Ben Rhodes.”

Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) isn’t surprised by the report and thought an investigation is necessary to determine what happened: “The report alleging the Obama Administration turned a blind eye and allowed Hezbollah to pump drugs into the United States to fund its terror campaigns in the Middle East is not surprising. Hampering the DEA’s investigation of Hezbollah would be emblematic of the previous administration’s fixation to strike a nuclear accord with Iran at any costs. This blind eye imperiled our efforts to combat Iran and its proxies’ malign behavior and left us with a cash-flush Iran on the warpath across the Middle East with a nuclear program legitimized by the [Iran deal]. Congress needs to investigate this report and do what the Obama Administration refused to do, severely increase pressure on Hezbollah and hold the terrorist group, and its benefactor Iran, accountable for their crimes.”

Should this investigation blow open to the public, it will give direct insight into exactly how the Obama administration placed U.S. national security at risk to pass a bad deal.

Dr. Peter Vincent Pry — executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security and director of the U.S. Nuclear Strategy Forum and served as the chief of staff on the Congressional EMP Commission, the Congressional Strategic Posture Commission, the House Armed Services Committee, and the CIA — gave a statement to the Daily Wire on how the Iran deal is a direct threat to America:

“Project Cassandra” wittingly or not, in ancient Greek is named for “an unheeded prophet of disaster” — an apt description of the anti-drug program against Hezbollah sabotaged by the Obama Administration to protect their Iran nuclear deal, and an even more apt description of the Iran nuclear deal itself. The extraordinary sacrifices made by the Obama Administration for the Iran nuclear deal endangered U.S. homeland security by facilitating Hezbollah’s criminal and terrorist activities against the American people and against U.S. allies. For the Iran nuclear deal, the Obama Administration sacrificed U.S. national security interests by alienating our closest Middle Eastern allies, including Israel and the moderate Middle Eastern states. The Iran nuclear deal itself is among the greatest threats to U.S. national security, promoting the fiction that Iran’s advance toward nuclear weapons has been halted, albeit temporarily. In fact, we know nothing of the kind. The inspection regime for the Iran nuclear deal leaves uninspected Iranian military bases and suspected clandestine facilities — where Iran almost certainly continues building nuclear weapons. Indeed, there is substantial and compelling evidence Iran achieved nuclear weapons capability years before the Iran nuclear deal. Was the Iran nuclear deal really appeasement, a surrender to Iran’s geostrategic and economic interests, so Iran would not disclose the politically humiliating and terrifying fact that, on Obama’s watch, Iran built their Islamic Bomb?

Parents In Uproar After Ivanka Trump Shows Up To School


Reported By Joe Setyon | December 20, 2017 at 7:42am

Many people might consider it an honor to receive a surprise visit from a member of the first family. But for some parents at Norwalk Early College Academy in Connecticut, that wasn’t the case.

White House special adviser Ivanka Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump, surprised students at the school by making an appearance there Tuesday. While at the school, she highlighted how important career education is.

Trump — who was joined in her visit by IBM CEO Ginni Rometty — took photos with students and teachers. From the looks her social media feeds, many at the school were excited to get the chance to see and even talk to the first daughter in person.

“It was an honor to meet so many bright and talented students!” Trump tweeted later in the day.

“To see the passion and enthusiasm for bringing real life skills into a classroom environment but then coupling it with real life experience through internship creates this really beautiful virtuous angle,” she said at the school, according to News 12 Connecticut.

According to the local station, though, some parents were upset by the surprise nature of the visit, especially given the fact that they were not given much information beforehand. Some of them even pulled their children out of class when they did hear about it.

“This should have been brought to our attention, although I do understand security reasons,” said one parent, Karey Fitzgerald.

“I think we should have had the choice to send our child to school or keep them home.”

The visit was part of Trump’s overall push to make teaching science, math and computer skills a priority of the education system, Newsweek reported. Students at the school can get degrees in software engineering and mobile programming. Over the course of four years, they are able to earn both a high school diploma and an associate’s degree.

Due to Ivanka’s influence, the president has reportedly directed the Department of Education to invest about $200 million a year into expanding STEM educational areas.

During a Tuesday appearance on “Fox & Friends,” the first daughter again emphasized career education.

“People aren’t used to creating things or building things anymore, and we really want to change that,” she said. “So we’re investing deeply in vocational education, technical education and apprenticeships.”

“We’re going to be investing deeply in our workforce,” she added, noting that her father’s administration plans to focus on rebuilding America’s infrastructure.

The New York Times Left Socialism’s Role Out of Its Report on Venezuela’s Devastation

Kudos to The New York Times—yes, The New York Times—for running an excellent, detailed story on the mass starvation and economic catastrophe taking place in Venezuela. As the Times notes, Venezuela has the largest known oil reserves in the world, yet is going through a starvation crisis exacerbated and hidden by its own government. Common items like baby formula are almost unattainable for the average person and the crisis is deepening.

Alas, missing from the Times analysis is nearly any discussion of the reality that Venezuela is a socialist country once praised by America’s liberal elite.  In fact, only a single mention of the ruling socialist party near the end of the piece can be found.

Venezuela was once praised by left-wing pundits—including in the Times’ opinion section—for being a model of glowing success. In fact, scoffing at claims of Venezuela’s alleged mismanagement under then-President Hugo Chávez, one New York Times contributor wrote in 2012:

Since the Chávez government got control over the national oil industry, poverty has been cut by half, and extreme poverty by 70 percent. College enrollment has more than doubled, millions of people have access to health care for the first time and the number of people eligible for public pensions has quadrupled.

Less than half a decade later, the collapse has come. Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, who once published an op-ed in The New York Times, has made himself a dictator as the country faces runaway inflation reminiscent of Zimbabwe.

Venezuela’s inflation spiked to 4,115 percent at the end of 2017, according to a CNN Money report, leading more than one economist to conclude that the country’s economy is in a “death spiral.”

So how did Venezuela get here? The answer is that socialism, as always, ends with running out of other people’s money.

James M. Roberts, the research fellow in economic freedom and growth at The Heritage Foundation, wrote about how dysfunctional policies such as nationalizing industries and redistribution schemes have destroyed a once thriving country. The private economy has been almost completely wrecked, and is now unable to meet even the most basic demands of the population.

But it isn’t just socialist policies that have led to this catastrophe. Venezuela is one of the most corrupt countries in the world and has very little economic freedom.

Roberts wrote: “Venezuela’s score in the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index makes it the most corrupt country in the Western Hemisphere, and helped drag the country to the bottom of The Heritage Foundation’s annual Index of Economic Freedom, too.”

As Heritage’s Latin American policy analyst, Ana Quintana, noted in The Hill, Venezuela’s leaders have managed to secure for themselves absolute power and wealth through repressive government actions and turning their country into a criminal enterprise. Their leaders are “directly involved in corruption, the drug trade, human rights violations, and support for terrorist groups,” Quintana wrote.

For instance, the current Venezuelan vice president, Tareck El Aissami, was designated by the U.S. Treasury as drug kingpin with connections to Islamist terrorist organizations. He’s been hit with heavy sanctions by the Trump administration, but is a good example of the kinds of problems that pervade Venezuela’s government. He’s only one of many.

Despite egalitarian socialist rhetoric, Venezuela’s ruling class has managed to both enrich itself and protect that wealth at the expense of the public. With outright corruption rampant, promises of material care by a benevolent state can seem appealing as an alternative to “capitalismwhen capitalism is simply defined as cronies in government working with cronies in big business for their own benefit.

Alas, like in George Orwell’s “Animal Farm,” the new overlords end up being just like the old ones, or worse. The rule of law and a free economy have generally combined to form the secret sauce of a flourishing economy.

Lacking both, Venezuela has somehow squandered a gold mine—or oil reserves to be more literal—in its downward descent into bankruptcy, tyranny, and mass starvation. Being oil rich has only masked the deep dysfunction under the surface of the Venezuelan regime.

Perhaps this should be a sobering wake-up call to millennials who in worryingly large numbers say they’d rather live under socialism or communism rather than capitalism. Socialism’s failures in the last century should be enough to disabuse Americans of any notion that this broken political philosophy, which runs counter to human nature, is in any way the answer to our problems. But if history fails to be a guide, then the modern demonstration of yet another socialist country immolating itself, starving its people, and destroying any measure of real democracy should be evidence enough.

Watch: Off-Duty Cop Drops Thug in Costco, Stops America’s Next Mass Killing


Reported By Cillian Zeal | December 20, 2017 at 6:16am

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/off-duty-cop-costco/

We’ve said it before, and we’ll keep on saying it: A good guy with a gun is the best way to counter a bad guy with a gun.

Capt. Michael Howell of the Kansas City (Kansas) Police Department proved that yet again when he dropped a thug in a Costco who could have been America’s next mass shooter. The incident happened last month but the video was just released last week, according to the Kansas City Star. It shows how Howell managed to kill Ronald O. Hunt.

It happened on Nov. 26 in a Costco in Lenexa, Kansas. According to Howell, he was in the store when he heard Hunt say, “I’m an off-duty U.S. Marshal, I’m here to kill people.”

“I knew that there was a threat that had to be stopped,” Howell said during a Friday news conference.

As Hunt moved through the aisles in what was described as a methodical fashion, Howell tracked the potential killer and then surprised him with his weapon.

“’Police, drop the gun. Don’t move,’” Howell recalls commanding Hunt.

After Howell repeated his command, Hunt turned on the off-duty cop with his weapon.

“That is when I fired at him,” Howell said. “And he went down.”

Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe said that Howell “acted with extreme courage, and saved an unknown amount of innocent lives” and that he wouldn’t face charges over the shooting.

Howell said he just did what had to be done.

“My greatest fear was we had kids with their moms, with their grandmas, with their dads,” Howell said.

“It was little kids running and screaming. And seeing the fear in their faces and knowing whatever it took, I had to do whatever necessary to end this threat so they wouldn’t get hurt.”

Thankfully, as Hunt went through the store with a pistol and a shopping cart, most of the customers fled out the emergency exit.

Meanwhile, Howell should really never have been in the store that day. He had originally planned to go to the Kansas City Chiefs game, but decided to stay at home and get some rest, instead. He had gone to Costco to get an electric fireplace.

As for claims that he was a hero, Howell downplayed the idea.

“I’m just a cop doing my job,” Howell said.

Of course, you won’t hear much in the mainstream media about this off-duty cop doing his job, and how he managed to stop a potential mass murderer before the wannabe killer could injure a single person. That’s because the idea of a good guy with a gun trumping a bad guy with a gun is anathema to the media’s narrative. Nevertheless, we salute Capt. Michael Howell. His quick thinking and bravery saved lives. That makes him a hero — and one more Americans should know about.

Just In: Judge Issues A Decision In The Bundy Ranch Case


Reported By Randy DeSoto | December 20, 2017 at 3:36pm

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournalism.com/judge-issues-a-decision-in-the-bundy-ranch-case/

A federal judge declared a mistrial on Wednesday in the case against Cliven Bundy and his co-defendants, stemming from their 2014 standoff in Nevada with the Bureau of Land Management over grazing rights.

U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro ruled that federal prosecutors unlawfully withheld information they were required to turn over to the defense including surveillance video, maps and FBI interview information, the Las Vegas Journal Review reported. The judge stated prosecutors knew or should have known of the existence of this evidence that may have been helpful to Cliven, Ammon and Ryan Bundy, and co-defendant Ryan Payne.

“Considered collectively, she said, the evidence that was withheld was favorable to the defendants and its untimely disclosure was prejudicial in that it ‘undermined the confidence of the outcome of the trial,’” Navarro found, according to the Journal Review.

The men are accused of conspiring to block federal agents from enforcing a court order to confiscate the Bundys’ cattle, which was grazing on public lands.

“Cliven Bundy had failed to pay grazing fees and fines for years,” according to The Associated Press. “The men are also charged with firearms crimes, threatening a federal law enforcement officer, obstruction of justice and extortion in a trial that began (on Nov. 14) in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.”

Bundy contended the federal government lacks the constitutional authority to own vast tracks of western lands, stating it instead belongs to the states and the people. He and the others present were protesting what they contended was unlawful conduct by the federal government in seizing his cattle.

As previously reported by The Western Journal, a federal whistleblower sent a memo to the Department of Justice last month alleging malfeasance in the handling of the investigation in the Bundy Ranch standoff.

Special agent Larry Wooten, who worked on the investigation (until being removed in February), wrote in the 18-page memo, “I routinely observed, and the investigation revealed a widespread pattern of bad judgment, lack of discipline, incredible bias, unprofessionalism and misconduct, as well as likely policy, ethical, and legal violations among senior and supervisory staff.”

He added their actions, “adversely affected our agency’s mission and likely the trial regarding Cliven Bundy and his alleged co-conspirators and ignored the letter and the intent of the law.”

Wooten chronicled in his memo that those overseeing the investigation showed clear prejudice against the Bundys, their supporters and the Mormon faith, which the ranchers profess.

BLM agents prominently displayed booking photos with “X’s” drawn over the faces of the Bundys, according to Wooten.

The agent recounted that when he reported what he was seeing to the agent-in-charge of the investigation, Dan Love, he came to realize the supervisor was “aware of the issues, participated in, or instigated the misconduct himself.”

Wooten accused Love, who was in charge of the cattle roundup at the Bundy ranch, of intentionally ignoring direction from the U.S. Attorney’s Office and his superiors “in order to command the most intrusive, oppressive, large scale and militaristic trespass cattle impound possible.”

Washington state Rep. Matt Shea, spoke out forcefully to the media last week after seeing Wooten’s memo, stating in an interview with Redoubt News, “a sniper rifle is not due process.”

“The government in the trial was saying, or at least implying that there were no snipers on site, and then this document details that there were in fact snipers on site,” Shea told The Western Journal. “These were being pointed at Americans who were protesting lawfully.”

The representative has been a longtime advocate for significant portions of federal lands held in the west being turned over to the states. Shea said the clear bias shown by the investigators is exculpatory and can be used to impeach the government witnesses at the Bundy trial. He noted that Navarro cited the Wooten memo in her Wednesday ruling.

According to ABC affiliate KTNV, a new trial in the Bundy case will likely begin in February. Based on what he has seen, Shea does not believe a mistrial is an adequate remedy.

“The withheld evidence doesn’t just give reason for a mistrial,” he said. “It looks like there needs to be a dismissal.” 

Shea added: “I don’t think this stops with a mistrial and a dismissal, I think this continues with an investigation,” into the BLM.

Fox News reported that “jurors acquitted (Ammon and Ryan Bundy) of taking over a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon for more than a month in early 2016 and amid calls for the U.S. government to turn over public land to local control.”

Pence Vows Trump Is ‘Gonna Keep Delivering’ on Promises, Unfazed by Polls


Reported by Brendan Kirby | Updated 21 Dec 2017 at 11:16 AM

President Donald Trump will succeed by delivering on his 2016 campaign promises, not sweating the polls, Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday night on “The Ingraham Angle.”

Trump’s approval rating has been mired under 40 percent in most surveys. But the vice president reminded Fox News host Laura Ingraham that most polls also suggested Trump would lose the 2016 election — and said Trump will continue doing things like passing historic tax cuts.

“One of the enduring lessons for me of election 2016 was ‘Don’t believe the polls,’” Pence said. “I don’t remember a poll that had us anywhere close to winning, and President Trump won a historic victory … If the president was sitting here, what he’d say to you is, ‘We’re just going to keep delivering. They’re going to keep talking, they’re going to keep resisting; we’re gonna keep delivering.’”

It is not just Trump who faces grim poll numbers. Surveys indicate the tax plan itself is also unpopular with varying majorities of Americans. Pence said the administration has to sell the merits, but he added that doing so will be much easier when withholding levels begin to change in workers’ paychecks.

“When the American people start to see more in their paychecks in February, they’re going to start to realize that the president’s vision here, that this middle-class miracle that was passed today by the Congress, is an idea whose time has come,” said Pence. “And I really do believe that this is going to sell itself.”

Pence added that Trump believes lower taxes and more economic activity will lead to growth that exceeds projections.

The soon-to-be law;

  • slashes the top corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent,
  • cuts taxes for businesses that are not incorporated,
  • and reduces individual tax rates in all brackets.
  • It also doubles the child tax credit,
  • kills Obamacare’s individual mandate,
  • and opens the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to energy exploration and production.

Pence rejected criticism that the tax cuts will add more than $1 trillion to the debt. “The estimates of deficits here are all based on some pretty predictable, you know, growth estimates going forward,” he said. Pence added that Trump believes lower taxes and more economic activity will lead to growth that exceeds projections.

The vice president sidestepped questions about independent counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the 2016 campaign and did not take the bait when Ingraham invited him to criticize the former FBI director’s team. That team includes a number of lawyers who have made political contributions to Democrats and are linked in relationships that strongly suggest improper bias in decision-making.

“It’s just not been a focus of mine or of this president,” Pence said, adding that the White House will continue to cooperate with Mueller but will not obsess over the probe. “We’ll let the special counsel do their job and continue to focus on our job. I think that’s exactly what the American people want us to do.”

Pence made clear the administration will concentrate on policy. He said after tax cuts, Trump will move on to welfare reform and rebuilding America’s roads and bridges.

“It’s humbling for me to be a part of it, and we’re just getting started,” he said.

Voter Fraud Investigation Launched Into Alabama Senate Special Election


Reported By Amanda Prestigiacomo | @amandapresto |

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill has launched an investigation into voter fraud accusations from last week’s Senate special election in which Democrat Doug Jones was declared the winner over his Republican opponent, embattled Judge Roy Moore. Moore has yet to officially concede.

The investigation was triggered by a viral video of a Jones supporter telling Fox10 reporter Kati Weis that he and others had traveled “from different parts of the country” to “vote” for their candidate, Jones.

“We came here all the way from different parts of the country as part of our fellowship, and all of us pitched in to vote and canvas together, and we got our boy elected!” said the unidentified man.

Speaking to Fox10, Merrill said the clip was “very disconcerting,” adding that his team is working to identify the man in the video.

“Well, it’s very disconcerting when someone who’s not from Alabama says that they participated in our election, so now it’s incumbent upon us to try to identify this young man, to see what kind of role he played ― if it was to simply play a canvassing roll, or if he was part of a process that went out and tried to register voters, or if he himself actually became a registered voter,” he said.

The secretary of state said he’s received “hundreds” of emails inquiring about the video.

“I’ve gotta do everything I possibly can to try and find this kid and figure out: Was he just exuberant in his expression? Was he overly enthusiastic about what was going on?” Merrill said. “Those things make perfect sense to me. He’s a kid, probably never been on TV before. If he had, he probably hadn’t been on more than a couple of times, probably never been on TV in a situation that was that intense with that much going on.”

Since Alabama has a voter ID law, Merrill noted that it’s unlikely there was fraud.

“Moore still has not officially conceded the election and in a fundraising email on Saturday said his campaign was investigating reports of voter fraud,” reports The Huffington Post.

Alabama Senate special election results must be certified by the third of next month.

Obama Aborted Anti-Terror Mission to Get His Iran Nuclear Deal Passed


Posted by GirlsJustWannaHaveGuns.com | on December 18, 2017

A jaw-dropping exposé by Politico has revealed former President Barack Hussein Obama’s administration allowed Hezbollah to smuggle drugs into the US so that the Iran Nuclear Deal could proceed on its path. 

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) was actively pursuing the criminal dealings of the Lebanese terror network in an investigation called Project Cassandra, starting back in 2008. In the report, Obama’s people allegedly set a number of roadblocks, stopping the DEA from doing their job and opening the door to trafficking and money laundering operations by Hezbollah.

One could say Obama and his administration paved the way for the terror-network’s cocaine smuggling operation into the US.

SEE DOCUMENTS BELOW

DEA agents have come out stating the administration ‘stopped them arresting key figures linked to Hezbollah as an agreement on the Iran nuclear deal approached – and scrapped Project Cassandra entirely once the terms were agreed in 2015,’ reports the Daily Mail.

When the administration wedged themselves between the DEA and Hezbollah, it allowed the terror network to grow into a global security threat.

According to Politico, the undercover investigation’s leaders sought permission for a number of significant prosecutions, arrests and financial sanctions, but Justice and Treasury Department officials delayed.

Via the Daily Mail: In some cases, they were hindered and some requests from the DEA’s Counter facility in Chantilly, Virginia, were flatly rejected. This hampered Project Cassandra’s efforts to bring the Hezbollah hierarchy to their knees. They included one of the world’s biggest cocaine traffickers who also supplied Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with chemical weapons.

Talking anonymously, some former Obama officials told Politico the decisions were made to improve relations with Iran.

David Asher, a founder of Project Cassandra, told Politico: ‘This was a policy decision, it was a systematic decision.

‘They serially ripped apart this entire effort that was very well supported and resourced, and it was done from the top down.’

Asher went on to explain the closer the Iran deal came to its final stages, the DEA’s job became more difficult. Coincidentally the moment the nuclear deal was announced in January 2016, agents working on Project Cassandra were transferred to other assignments.

After more than a decade of tensions with the West, Tehran signed a landmark deal with world powers to curb its nuclear activity in exchange for the gradual lifting of crippling economic sanctions. President Donald Trump has threatened to scrap the accord. The revelations also come just a week after the leader of Hezbollah swore to ‘end’ the US, calling for ‘martyr’ terror attacks in Jerusalem after Trump’s recognition of the city as the Israeli capital.

Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary General of the Lebanese militant group, made the impassioned televised speech to thousands of followers, inciting the crowd to chant ‘Death to America’This was followed by a warning to Lebanon from Israel’s Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz, who said that if Hezbollah attacked Israel, the country would return the whole country ‘back to the Stone Age’.

In his speech this week, translated by the Washington D.C.-based Middle East Media Research Institute, Hezbollah leader Nasrallah appeared to urge followers to carry out terror attacks in Jerusalem.

‘It is time that everybody knows that America is not the sponsor of peace in Palestine and the region,’ he said in the televised speech

‘America is the sponsor of terrorism, of occupation, of Judaization, of deportation, of burning, of destruction and of civil strife.

‘America created ISIS and the takfiri [apostate] groups.’

He continued to state the only position Lebanon can take with the United States is ‘Death to America’, to which the crowd chanted the threats and waved the Palestinian flag. Nasrallah then encouraged the crowd to turn President Trump’s move to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital into the ‘beginning of the end’ for the U.S.and Israel ‘for all eternity’.

He also called for ‘millions of martyrs’ to march on Jerusalem, potentially inciting terror attacks.

Israel and Hezbollah fought a war in 2006 and often trade warnings. But in an interview on Wednesday, Intelligence Minister Katz warned that if the organization resumed a military conflict ‘all of Lebanon will be a target.’

‘What happened in 2006 would be a picnic compared to what could happen… 

‘I say Lebanon will return to the stone age.’

Iran Unveils Ballistic Missile Undetectable by Radar


By Clarion Project Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Iran unveils the Zulfiqar ballistic missile that reportedly is not detectable by radar

Iran officially introduced a new ballistic missile the Islamic Republic says is not detectable by radar. Ballistic missiles can be used to deliver nuclear warheads.

The missile, dubbed the Zulfiqar, was unveiled December 17, at the Amirkabir University of Technology in Tehran, according to the Iranian Fars News Agency.

According to Shiite tradition, the Zulfiqar was the legendary sword of Ali ibn Abi Talib given to him by Islam’s prophet Mohammed, his cousin and son-in-law. Ali was also the fourth caliph of Islam and the first imam of Shiite Islam. According to tradition, the sword was given to Mohammed by the angel Gabriel.

The missile’s range is reportedly between 435-466 miles (700-750 kilometers) and uses solid, conventional fuels. It is 29 feet (8.86 meters) long with a two-foot diameter (61 centimeters) and weighs 992 pounds (450 kilograms).

The missile is part of the generation of Fateh missiles, which Iran claims are highly accurate and can negate electronic waves used to divert missiles from their targets.

The missile was used by the Revolutionary Guards to destroy ISIS sites in Deir ez-Zor  in Syria in June.

African-American Leader Destroys the ‘Palestinian Myth,’ Proves Jerusalem belongs to the Jews


Reported By Onan Coca December 19, 2017

Bishop Aubrey Shines tends to make liberals very upset. Why? Because he refuses to side with them simply because society expects him to. When he disagrees with Democrat policies, plans, or ideas, he loudly explains why they are wrong and why they are wrong for the black community.

During the 2016 presidential election, Bishop Shines saw through Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, and realized that Donald Trump offered him and his community the best opportunity for growth and prosperity. This led Shines to support Trump, drawing the ire of the majority Democrat black community in America, but thus far, Trump’s policies have proven Shines right.

By most economic measures minority Americans, particularly blacks and hispanics, are already faring far better than they did during any point in the Obama era. (See here and here for the mathematical proof.)

However, Bishop Shines latest commentary isn’t drawing the ire of the left for siding with Trump when it comes to the black community, no this time he’s got liberals mad because he’s siding with Israel.

In a recent video, Bishop Shines blows up the “Palestinian Myth,” and explains why the Jews are the true owners of the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.

A partial transcript from Breitbart:

“You may be wondering where did this two-state solution idea originate from? And why hasn’t it been implemented.

Briefly, in 1936 British leaders formed a commission that felt the best way to protect the Jews that were constantly being harassed by the Arab people, was to divide the land into two states, giving over 80% to the Arabs and the small 20% to the Jews. Jews accepted, the Arabs declined. In 1947 the U.N tried the same scenario, again, the Arab countries declined.

Arab nations began intensifying their efforts by attacking the small Israeli nation, but to no avail. In 1967 the leaders of the Arab nations met and unanimously decided they would never accept Israel under no condition other than their dead bodies rotting in the streets.

So, in 1967, the Jordanians (not the so-called Palestinians), along with its Arab neighbors, invaded Israel once again in the hopes that they would wipe out the remaining Jewish presence. Israel won that war and kicked out the Jordanians from the land they had illegally occupied almost two decades prior known as the West Bank.”

This land has nothing to do with a Palestinian people; it was illegally part of Jordan for 18 years. 80% of the so-called Palestinians are Jordanian Arabs. Hence, there already is a ‘Palestinian state’ it happens to be called Jordan. Even in the year 2000 current president of Mahood Abbas was offered an additional 10% of the land for peace, of course he declined.

In 2005 the Jewish people gave the Gaza area away hoping peace would result in the gesture, instead the land has been used to attack the Jews by sending thousands of rockets into the communities that are only a few miles away, can you imagine sending your kids to school in the mornings or kissing someone you love before he or she goes to the office only to hear air sirens blaring in the streets or your office where you’re working?

The fear that would grip your heart knowing you may never see your children or your love one’s ever again?

Dividing your God given land by appeasing those that hate you, as well as, that desire to totally annihilate you hasn’t been nor will ever be the best solution. Thank you President DJT for having the resiliency and tenacity to do what a dozen other presidents promised to do but lacked the courage to do.”

 

Democrats Reveal Franken Resignation Was All a Tactic to Kill Trump, Now Want Him to Cancel Quitting


By Warner Todd Huston December 19, 2017

It may already seem like a month ago, yet less than two weeks ago Minnesota’s Democrat Senator Al Franken resigned after nearly a dozen women accused him of incidents of sexual harassment stretching back two decades. But, now the Democrat Party is essentially admitting that Franken’s “resignation” was really nothing but a ploy to destroy Donald Trump and since the ploy failed, they want Franken to reverse his resignation announcement.

Needless to say, Franken, a shrill, name caller who pretends to be a statesman, got caught up in the Harvey Weinstein/Roy Moore whirlwind of sexual harassment allegations. He spent decades as an ersatz comedian groping women in a number of settings because, he thought, he was a funny guy. But by the end of November, after dozens of members of the Hollywood and media establishments got destroyed by allegations of sexual misconduct, Mr. funny-hands Franken was outed as a serial abuser.

At first he insisted that he would never resign because he “apologized” and agreed to cooperate with a Senate Ethics Committee investigation. But it soon seemed as if every second day another woman was coming out to accuse him of sexually harassing them.

Soon, his own Democrat colleagues in the upper chamber began coming out to demand his resignation. By December 6, over 30 Democrat Senators had banded together to demand he quit the Senate. Days later he finally announced he was bowing to the pressure.

But these Senators all had an ulterior motive and his name was Roy Moore.

You’ll also recall that running concurrent with Franken’s headaches was the special election for the Alabama Senate seat that Jeff Sessions abandoned when he became Trump’s (somewhat useless) Attorney General.

The Democrats calculated that Moore would win the election in Alabama — because Alabama is a deep red state — despite that for months Moore had been dogged by allegations that 40 years ago he tried to date women who were minors between the ages of 14 and 19.

(Side note: Moore was not trying to date “children,” either. Don’t fall for that misuse of language. A 14-year-old is legally a minor, NOT a “child,” so Moore was absolutely NOT a “child molester.” Words matter.)

If Moore won these Democrats had already planned a battle to have him expelled from the Senate over the allegations that he is a sex abuser. But they knew that they wouldn’t have a leg to stand on if Franken was still sitting right next to them in the Senate. That is why they all banded together to force him to resign. They wanted to use Franken’s resignation as a club to kill Roy Moore’s chances of entering the Senate.

Then, if their Roy Moore gambit was a success, these starry-eyed Democrats dreamed the dreamy dream of using the same tactic to destroy President Donald Trump and either force his resignation, or use it to successfully impeach him.

But, oopsies, Moore lost to Democrat Doug Jones and their whole battle plan went up in smoke.

Now the same Democrats who wanted to force Franken out of the Senate as a cynical poly to kill Roy Moore/Trump are falling all over themselves to say what a ‘mistake” it was to ask the serial woman abuser to quit his seat.

A group of top Democrats have now come out wishing they hadn’t demanded that Franken resign. The list includes Senator Patrick Leahy (D, VT) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D, WV), but Politico says that two other Senate Democrats have privately urged Franken to stay. Manchin was one of the few who shied from calling for Franken’s resignation last week, but the other three had joined the call for the Minnesotan to step down.

As Daily Wire correctly points out, these reversals prove that “there is no moral high ground” with the Democrats. The call for Franken’s resignation was just a scheme to destroy Republicans in the first place, not any real move to pure morality. And now that their battle plan fell apart, they want to retreat from that moral high ground they claimed to have captured.

Trump’s Plan Is to Use U.S. Economy, Strength to Achieve Peace and Security. President promises calm through might, identifies jihadis as threats, and warns he will not ignore rivals Russia and China


disclaimerReported by Jim Stinson | Updated 18 Dec 2017 at 2:44 PM

 

President Donald Trump will unveil his National Security Strategy on Monday, a policy that will stress a friendly but firm rivalry with Russia and China, and one that will seek to end terrorism and promote “America First” policies.

In a pre-speech news release from the White House, the president outlined his strategies for national security. 

A main goal will be to “restore respect for the United States abroad and renew American confidence at home.” 

Trump will outline “four pillars” of the national security: to protect the homeland, the American people, and American way of life; to promote American prosperity; to preserve peace through strength; and to advance American influence. Trump makes clear he wants to take on Russia and China as they seek to use disinformation to expand their influence and demean democratic states. The administration will take on such “revisionist powers … that use technology, propaganda and coercion to shape a world antithetical to our interests and values.”

Second, Trump said his policies will target regional dictators who spread terror, threaten neighbors, and pursue weapons of mass destruction. 

Third, the administration will take on jihadi terrorists “that foment hatred to incite violence against innocents in the name of a wicked ideology, and transnational criminal organizations that spill drugs and violence into our communities.”

Part of Trump’s strategy to protect the homeland will be to strengthen control of U.S. borders and reform of immigration systems “to protect the homeland and restore our sovereignty.”

Trump will target criminal organizations that traffic in terrorism and drugs. 

“Transnational criminal organizations [are] tearing apart our communities with drugs and violence and weakening our allies and partners by corrupting democratic institutions,” Trump said. “We will confront threats before they ever reach our borders or cause harm to our people. We will redouble our efforts to protect our critical infrastructure and digital networks, because new technology and new adversaries create new vulnerabilities.

“Trump will also stress the power of the U.S. economy, the largest in the world, to wield influence globally. This will mean an end to unfair trade agreements, and theft of intellectual property.

“We will rejuvenate the American economy for the benefit of American workers and companies, which is necessary to restore our national power,” Trump said. “America will no longer tolerate chronic trade abuses and will pursue free, fair, and reciprocal economic relationships. To succeed in this 21st-century geopolitical competition, America must lead in research, technology, and innovation. We will protect our national security innovation base from those who steal our intellectual property and unfairly exploit the innovation of free societies.”

Trump will stress global peace through strength, a tenet also preached by former President Ronald Reagan.

“We will rebuild America’s military strength to ensure it remains second to none,” Trump said. “America will use all of the tools of statecraft in a new era of strategic competition — diplomatic, information, military, and economic — to protect our interests. America will strengthen its capabilities across numerous domains, including space and cyber, and revitalize capabilities that have been neglected.”

Trump will say allies must increase their share of defense spending.

Trump’s remarks indicate he seeks global U.S. influence, without using harsh tools to achieve it. Instead, Trump said he will use diplomacy and economic incentives to trade with the world’s largest economic power.

“We must continue to enhance our influence overseas to protect the American people and promote our prosperity,” said Trump. “America’s diplomatic and development efforts will compete to achieve better outcomes in all arenas — bilateral, multilateral, and in the information realm — to protect our interests, find new economic opportunities for Americans, and challenge our competitors. America will seek partnerships with like-minded states to promote free market economies, private sector growth, political stability, and peace.”

Trump’s National Security Strategy was compiled within 11 months of his inauguration, something senior administration officials boasted about. The document usually takes more than a year to write. The strategy is required by law to be compiled by a new president and presented to Congress. But Trump may be the first president to share an outline with the public.

White House officials said the speech contained priorities mentioned in Trump’s three major speeches on security, which were given in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Warsaw, Poland; and the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York.

WSJ: The Tax Cuts Will Grow the Economy by Much More than Expected


Mark Wilson/Getty Images

Reported by John Carney | 18 Dec 2017

URL of the original posting site: http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/12/18/wsj-the-tax-cuts-will-grow-the-economy-by-much-more-than-expected/

Tax cuts are going to grow the economy by much more than expected.

That’s the verdict of the Wall Street Journal‘s prestigious “Heard on the Street” column. Importantly, Heard on the Street is run by the news side of the WSJ, not its tax-cut loving editorial page. So there’s no particular pro-tax cut or pro-Republican bias at work here.

Justin Lahart of Heard writes:

There were several surprises for investors when Republicans unveiled their final tax bill Friday, but the most significant is that they add up to a bigger boost to economic growth next year.

The bigger stimulus could fundamentally change how the market behaves in 2018. Sales and profits will be stronger than most investors expect. But with the unemployment rate low, wage pressures will mount faster, and inflation should pick up more. If the tax plan passes, as seems likely, it could lead the Federal Reserve to raise rates faster, putting the bond market at risk.

The tax plan was always expected to juice the economy, but the Senate version, which passed after the House approved its bill, had relatively modest short-term stimulus. While the stock market kept rising in anticipation of a cut, the bond market hardly budged. The bill unveiled Friday front-loaded more than $200 billion in stimulus for next year. Economists had been penciling in a boost of about a third of a percentage point next year. Now that is looking way low.

Some of the pro-growth changes include eliminating any delay to the corporate tax cuts, lowering of the top individual rate, lowering rates for most taxpayers, and increasing the child tax credit. The latter is particularly important because middle-class households are “more likely to spend extra income than the rich.”

The tax bill could increase GDP by 1.3 percent, Lahart writes.

That’s an additional full percentage point gain from what economists had been expecting based on earlier bills.

(Full disclosure: I used to work for Heard on the Street and consider Lahart a personal friend. He’s had me over to his apartment for fish.)
