Breaking: Adam Schiff Sets Eyes on Pence – Tells MSNBC He’s “Acquired Evidence” from Vice President’s Office on Ukrainian Investigation


Posted Jim Hoft

Adam Schiff went on with Rachel Maddow last night to push their Trump-Ukraine conspiracy — something that was completely debunked everywhere after three weeks of testimony except on CNN, MSNBC and the fake news media.

During their conversation Schiff announced he was going after Vice President Mike Pence next and may have “acquired evidence” that the Vice President is hiding information in the House Ukrainian investigation.

Adam Schiff: Well, we have acquired a piece of evidence, classified by Jennifer Williams, something she alluded to in her open testimony. Then going back and looking through her records she found other information that was pertinent to that phone call that we asked her about and made that submission. There is nothing that is classified in the document but the vice president’s office has said they are going to classify… It is not proper to classify something because it would be embarrassing or incriminating. And that submission does shed light on the vice president’s knowledge. We think the American people should see it.

Jennifer Williams testified before Congress in November and offered nothing. She worked for Vice President Mike Pence. So now Schiff has Democrats thinking Williams holds the key to Pence’s impeachment.

Then President Pelosi will RULE!
These people are crazy!

Trump says Palestinian aid is ‘on the table’. “That money is not going to them, unless they sit down and negotiate peace.”

Trump and Netanyahu

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Thursday, President Trump called out the Palestinian leadership for their entitled attitude about receiving U.S. aid, along with their refusal to meet with Vice President Mike Pence.

President Trump made the comments as he was meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the major conference. The two world leaders expressed gratitude for the repaired U.S.-Israel alliance.

Netanyahu thanked Trump for standing up for Israel against the United Nations’ “house of slander.” Trump praised Israel for standing with the U.S. He expressed concern over potential waste in hundreds of millions in aid money to the Palestinians, after they “disrespected us” by refusing to meet with the vice president.

The president then issued an ultimatum to the Palestinians:

“That money is on the table, and that money is not going to them, unless they sit down and negotiate peace. Because I can tell you that Israel does want to make peace, and they’re going to have to want to make peace, too.”

At the same time, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley arrived at U.N. headquarters Thursday with a message to the Palestinians: The White House’s patience with their leadership is running thin. Haley argued that the “single most important element” for Israeli-Palestinian peace is “leaders who have the will to do what’s needed to achieve peace.”

Haley took Abbas to task for his “outrageous” anti-Israel, anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, saying they do not represent a person “with the courage and the will to seek peace.

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.

Trump: Yes to Free Trade – No to Stupid Trade


Reported By Onan Coca | July 19, 2017 

President Trump delivered another excellent speech reminding Americans everywhere about our long history of manufacturing and trade, but one moment in particular will follow the President as he moves forward. It was a short part of the speech that allowed him to articulate his philosophy on trade and business..

President James Garfield said, of our nation’s manufacturers, that, “to them the country owes the splendor of the position it holds before the world” — meaning, protect us.

Theodore Roosevelt declared in his first message to Congress that “reciprocity” — my favorite word, reciprocity — because we have countries that charge us 100 percent tax on a product, and when that product is sold by them to us, we brilliantly charge them nothing.  And people say, oh, that’s free trade.  No, that’s stupid trade.  That’s really stupid trade.  (Applause.) 

It’s incredible.  You’ll actually have people who — “No, we can’t do that.  That’s free trade.”  It’s just — that’s so incredible, but what are you going to do.  (Laughter.)  Oh, what happens in Washington, you just wouldn’t believe the things.  

But “reciprocity must be treated as the handmaiden of protection.”  And William McKinley proclaimed that “we ought to take care of our own nation and her industries first.”  We have to look at our nation first for a change.  We’ve been looking the other way for a long, long time.  And if you look at what’s going on or the success of other nations — even in Europe — you look at some of those countries, one in particular, it’s not fair to the United States.  

And that’s why I’m here, and I believe it’s one of the primary reasons you elected me and Mike.  I mean, that’s why we’re here.  And I think you’re going to see a big, big — I don’t think — I don’t think — I know you’re going to see one of the great differences, and you’re already seeing it, but it’s going to get more so and more so.  And we’re going to end up having a level playing field.

I don’t want to say any more than level.  But if the playing field were slanted like a little bit toward us, I’d accept that also.  Okay?

Here’s the Full Speech:

Transcript via the White House:

Thank you, Mike.  And you know, Mike, it is true that, as I walked through the halls, we saw so many great companies, but the gentleman who was in charge of Omaha Beef — they do beef — he hugged me, he wanted to kiss me so badly.  (Laughter.)  Because he said, our business is a whole different business now because you got China approved; the other administrations couldn’t even come close.  And I told him, you know how long it took?  One sentence.  I said, President Xi, we’d love to sell beef back in China again.  He said, you can do that.  That was the end of that.  Right?  (Applause.)  Sonny.  The great Sonny Perdue.  (Applause.)  So we’re very happy.

But we’re here today to celebrate American manufacturing and to showcase the amazing products from all 50 states, made in the USA.  Remember in the old days they used to have “Made in the USA”, “Made in America”?  But made in the USA.  We’re going to start doing that again.  We’re going to put that brand on our product because it means it’s the best.

In just a few months and moments, I will say what we’ve done over a short period of time and what we’re going to be doing over the next six months will be incredible.

We’ve signed more bills — and I’m talking about through the legislature — than any President ever.  For a while, Harry Truman had us, and now I think we have everybody, Mike.  I better say “think,” otherwise they’ll give me a Pinocchio — (laughter) — and I don’t like those — I don’t like Pinocchios.  (Laughter.)

In just a few moments, I’ll be signing a Presidential Proclamation to launch “Made in America Week” and to make today “Made in America Day.”

We are thrilled to be joined today by so many incredible members of my Cabinet.  Every member of my administration shares the same goal:  to provide a level playing field for American workers and for American industry.  (Applause.)  And we are providing it much faster than other countries would like.  So it’s been really a pleasure.

We want to build, create, and grow more products in our country using American labor, American goods, and American grit.  When we purchase products made in the USA, the profits stay here, the revenue stays here, and the jobs — maybe most importantly of all — they stay right here in the USA.  (Applause.)

In the audience today we have skilled workers, we have business leaders whose American-made goods we are proudly displaying all over the White House and outside.  I saw fire engines.  I saw tractors from Caterpillar.  I saw some incredible machinery.  Make it right here.  We thank you for being here.  We’re honored to showcase your creations.  And I will say, they’ve really taken on, and some of you have built names that I know of for so long.  And its — congratulations.  Right?  You in particular.  What a great job you’ve done.  Thank you very much.  And I saw you on television this morning.  You were fantastic.  I don’t know what you’re doing, exactly, but you could always have a second career.  (Laughter.)  You did a great job.  Thank you very much.

American workers, farmers, and innovators are really the best in the world — we know that.  And what we’re doing [with] that is we’re displaying those talents.  You construct and harvest the products that fill our homes, feed our families, and defend our nation, and enrich our lives.  I want to make a pledge to each and every one of you:  No longer are we going to allow other countries to break the rules, steal our jobs, and drain our wealth — and it has been drained.  It has been drained.  (Applause.)

You’re going to see a lot of things happening over the next six months — you know, statutorily and through a lot of different legal — through the legal process.  It takes a while to get it set so that you’re allowed to do it.  You’re not allowed to do, but we’ve now mostly fulfilled all of that.  And over the next short period of time, you’re going to see things announced that you won’t even believe for our country and for selling product in our country and making product in our country,and things that are great for American jobs.  You’re going to be seeing that happening really quickly because we are totally set up, and the hard part now is done.  It is a long, horrible process, but we’re going to also get rid of some of that process for the future.  But we’re going to stand up for our companies and, maybe most importantly, for our workers.

For decades, Washington has allowed other nations to wipe out millions of American jobs through unfair trade practices.  Wait until you see what’s up for you.  You are going to be so happy.  This painful exodus of American jobs — and I’ve been talking about it for years — was also marked by a period of sluggish growth, falling incomes, surging welfare, and shrinking participation in the workforce.  Clearly, it’s time for a new policy — one defined by two simple rules:  We will buy American and we will hire American.  Right, Governor?  (Applause.)

My administration is removing the burdens and regulations on your companies so that you can compete, thrive, and grow.  How many of you have noticed this so far?  Because it’s a big, big difference, right?  That’s a big, big difference.  The people are coming up to me — they can’t even believe it.  We took the farmer’s land away.  We took the homebuilder’s land away.  They have their land back now, and they’re building homes and they’re farming their farms, and it’s a beautiful thing to see.  And they’re so thankful.

So a lot of those regulations have been taken off; the rest are coming off.  And, by the way, we will have better protection than we’ve ever had, but we’ll also have something where you don’t have to wait 15 years for a permit and then when you go to the board, you lose.  And that’s a big portion of your life wiped out waiting for a permit.  We’re not going to let that happen.

But for our nation to really prosper, we must lower the tax on

business — one of the highest in the world — and we must repeal job-killing Obamacare.  We have to do that.  (Applause.)  And I can tell you, we hope John McCain gets better very soon because we miss him.  He’s a crusty voice in Washington.  Plus, we need his vote.  (Laughter.)  And he’ll be back.  And he will be back sooner than somebody else would be back.  He’ll be back soon.

But we need that vote.  And we need a number of votes because we do have to repeal Obamacare, and we will end up replacing it with something that is going to be outstanding — far, far better than failing Obamacare where premiums have gone up, in some cases over 200 percent this year; where every single element of it is bad, and the insurance companies, by the way, are fleeing, so people have — in some states you have no insurance companies.

And we have some governors here, and we have senators here, and we have congressmen here, and women — and I will tell you, it’s a very, very hard time they’re having with the Obamacare situation.  So we’re going to get that done, and I think we’re going to surprise a lot of people.  But they’re pushing very hard.  The Republican senators are great people, but they have a lot of different states.  Some states need this, some states need that.  But we’re getting it together, and it’s going to happen.  Right, Mike?

THE VICE PRESIDENT:  Yes, sir.

THE PRESIDENT:  I think.  (Laughter and applause.)  And when it does happen, that will be a big day in America, believe me.  A big day in America.

But we must also fight the unfair trade practices that have gutted our industry, and that includes cracking down on the predatory online sales of foreign goods, which is absolutely killing our shoppers and our shopping centers.  If you look at what’s going on with shopping centers and stores and jobs in stores, it’s been very, very tough for them.  They’ve had a very hard time.  Closing at numbers and records that have never been seen before.  So we have to stop that — the online predatory practices.

Since the beginning of the year, we have already created over 50,000 brand-new manufacturing jobs, and we’re just getting started.  We will lift our citizens from welfare to work.  We will turn boarded-up communities into new outposts of American commerce.  And we will once again rediscover our heritage as a manufacturing nation.  We used to be a manufacturing nation.  Not so much anymore.  But I will tell you, if you look at Michigan, if you look at some states that have really moved — you know, in Pennsylvania, two weeks ago they opened the mine — the first mine that was opened in decades.  Opened a mine.

And you know all the people that were saying the mining jobs?  Well, we picked up 45,000 mining jobs in a very short period of time.  And everybody was saying, well, you won’t get any mining jobs.  We picked up 45,000 mining jobs, and the miners are very happy with Trump and with Pence.  And we’re very proud of that.  But that’s just the beginning.  We have jobs coming from all over.

Restoring American manufacturing will not only restore our wealth, it will restore our pride and pride in ourselves.  It will revitalize our independence, and it will rebuild the bonds of kinship between our communities and our citizens, which has been lagging, wouldn’t you say?

For most of our nation’s history, American — and we see this — American Presidents have understood that in order to protect our economy and our security, we must protect our industry.  And much of that comes at the border.  George Washington encouraged Americans to produce their own goods so that our young nation could become truly independent.

So, once again, we will celebrate craftsmen, producers, and innovators like the incredible men and women in this room today.  We will protect our workers, promote our industry, and be proud of our history because we will put America first.  America will be first again.  We will make America great again.  Remember that.  (Applause.)  And we’ll meet in this same room in a year and in two years, and you’ll see what happened.

Thank you for all being here.  God bless you and God bless America.  Thank you very much.  Thank you, thank you.  (Applause.)

(The President moves to the signing desk.)

So this is being signed in honor of Made in America Day and Made in America Week, and soon we’re going to have Made in America Decades.  We’re going to have a lot of tremendous success, and it’s already just starting to kick in.

You see it with the job numbers.  You see it with the stock market, which hit an all-time high every day for quite a while now.  You see it with so many other things.  And most importantly perhaps, you see it with the manufacturers.  Their level of enthusiasm is greater now than at any time since they’ve been taking this type of poll, and I believe it’s 28 years old.  So people are enthused.  Are you all enthused?  (Applause.)

Thank you all for being here.
