Senator Rand Paul Blasts Outgoing AG Sessions. Calls On New AG To ‘Go After The Deep State’ & Protect POTUS Trump

Senator Rand Paul remains one of the few truly principled members of Congress. You may not always agree with his positions but you cannot deny he makes them clear and he sticks by them regardless of how the ever-changing winds of public opinion might blow. This week he calls on the new Attorney General of the United States to be willing to fight the dangerously growing powers of the Deep State, including its ongoing war with the Trump White House.

Exclusive – Rand Paul: Next A.G. Must Defend Individual Liberty from Power-Hungry Deep State

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) offered his thoughts on who should replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions during an interview with Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House.
“I think your cabinet needs to have people in it who agree with you,” Paul said when asked if he was happy about Sessions’ departure. “I think for a long time Jeff Sessions hasn’t really been working for what the president would like him to do.”

“I also think that there are some big reforms that we need of our justice and our intelligence agencies, and I think justice can be part of that,” Paul added. “What they’ve done to the president has been very unfair with going after his campaign, trying to entrap people.”

Paul then referenced the deep state, as he believes they are the ones targeting members of the Trump Administration.

“This whole thing [of going after Trump’s campaign], I think, was set up by people in the intelligence community. Some call it the deep state. Yes, these are people that are there forever and they care more about power and their power than they do about anybody’s individual rights.”

“What I’ve been encouraging the president is that he needs somebody to be attorney general who actually recognizes what they did to President Trump was wrong,” Paul explained.

Sessions has a steady past of opposing criminal justice reform. During his time as a United States senator, Sessions fought against the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act. As attorney general, Sessions was unmoveable when it came to low-level drug offense reform, for which he was often criticized.


 

BREAKING: Kevin McCarthy Beats Jim Jordan for House Leadership

Congressman Kevin McCarthy easily defeated a challenge from Congressman Jim Jordan for the position of House Minority Leader this afternoon. Jordan will likely be the ranking minority leader on the House Judiciary Committee, pitting him against Democrats intent on unleashing a mass of anti-Trump investigations.

The president’s relationship with McCarthy has been overwhelmingly positive over the course of the first two years of the Trump administration. It was McCarthy who often had to act as peacemaker between the president and outgoing House Speaker, Paul Ryan who remained an anti-Trumper—behind closed doors. It was also McCarthy who led the charge for passage of the Trump tax cuts, work which the president is said to have been very impressed by.

President Trump is also on very good terms with Congressman Jordan who has been a stalwart supporter of the president’s since 2016. If President Trump has called on both men to make a quick peace and get ready for what will likely be a contentious ongoing battle with the new Democrat House majority, it is likely that is exactly what will happen.


 

Congressman Matt Gaetz: Dems Using Florida Recounts as Test to See How They Can ‘Steal’ 2020 From Trump

Congressman Gaetz knows well the typical Florida election shenanigans that so often come out of Broward county. What was and is taking place before, during, and after, the 2018 Midterms is beyond anything he has witnessed before and he’s doing his best to warn Americans what that really means for 2020 and beyond.

Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is alleging that Democrats in Florida are “stress testing the integrity” of the election system in an effort to build “a roadmap on how to steal” the 2020 race from President Donald Trump.

In a SiriusXM interview on Breitbart News Daily, Gaetz told Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow, “If the Democrats are able to learn now what techniques work and don’t work, [which] transparency laws are going to be followed and which ones aren’t, then it gives them a roadmap on how to steal the election from Donald Trump in 2020.”

Gaetz added: “The resistance movement has changed from yelling at town halls and yelling in restaurants to now, potentially, trying to steal elections that they can’t win at the ballot box.”

The Florida congressman, who won reelection in his district earlier this month by more than 30 percent, said that the most concerning element in all of this has been that since election day, more than 80,000 ballots “have just been like spoken into existence.”

“They weren’t acknowledged to even exist on election night, and then lo and behold, the Democrats needed more votes to close the gaps,” he said, “and more ballots continued to be found.”

DOJ Gives Matthew Whitaker Legal Approval To Serve As Acting Attorney General

Despite the all-too-predictable cries for ‘RECUSE!’ coming from Democrats, Matthew Whitaker was just given the legal green light from on high as the Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel released its opinion that Mr. Whitaker is a legally viable figure to serve as the acting AG per the Federal Vacancies Reform Act (VRA) of 1998.

Image result for Matt Whitaker is a beast

Whitaker is a beast of a man whose physical presence and no-nonsense stare are well known and respected throughout the Justice Department. He has made his concerns public in recent months regarding the ever-widening scope of the highly controversial Mueller probe which in turn has made him an enemy of Democrats who hope to continue using that probe to damage the Trump presidency.

Via Fox News:

Whitaker previously served as Sessions’ chief of staff at the Justice Department. The president requested Sessions’ resignation last week, just hours after the polls closed on Election Day. Sessions had been criticized by the president throughout his tenure at the Justice Department due to his decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, due to his involvement with the Trump campaign in 2016.

Following Sessions’ recusal, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates in the 2016 presidential election.

But Whitaker’s new role would include oversight of the Russia investigation, along with the agency’s other federal investigations, including the New York prosecutors’ look into the finances of Trump and his former aides.

Democrats and eighteen state attorneys general have taken issue with Whitaker’s appointment, calling for him to recuse himself from overseeing the Russia probe, citing in part his “hostility” to the investigation given his past criticism in the media.

In an op-ed Whitaker wrote last year, he argued that “any investigation into President Trump’s finances or the finances of his family would require Mueller to return to Rod Rosenstein for additional authority under Mueller’s appointment as special counsel.”

“It is time for Rosenstein…to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel,” Whitaker wrote. “If he doesn’t, then Mueller’s investigation will eventually start to look like a political fishing expedition. This would not only be out of character for a respected figure like Mueller, but also could be damaging to the President of the United States and his family—and by extension, to the country.”

And separately, in July 2017, Whitaker told CNN, “I could see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced with a recess appointment, and that attorney general doesn’t fire Bob Mueller, but he just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to almost a halt.”

Meanwhile, Whitaker made his first public appearance as acting attorney general on Wednesday in Iowa, his home state, and delivered remarks on “elder justice.”

Detroit Moving To Remove Ben Carson’s Name From City High School Named In His Honor?

The anti-Trump hatred among the elites continues to grow and grow across America. This time it is Ben Carson’s home city of Detroit where he was once applauded as an example of a poor child raised by a single mother who went on to become one of the most celebrated neurosurgeons in the world. A book deal followed, then a Hollywood film, and a high school named in Mr. Carson’s honor. Today, Detroit ‘leaders’ are moving to strip that high school of Ben Carson’s name for nothing more than Carson’s ongoing support of the Trump administration. 

Via Fox News:

The name of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson could be removed from a high school in his hometown of Detroit now that a state-appointed emergency manager no longer oversees the city’s Board of Education, according to reports.

The board voted 6-1 Tuesday to begin soliciting public opinion on whether the name of the Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine – as well as some other schools in the district – should be changed.

The Carson school was named for the former neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate before he became a member of President Trump’s Cabinet, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Board member LaMar Lemmons told the Detroit News that those now backing a name change “don’t support the (Trump) administration.”

It’s liberal moral dyslexia at its worst. During the Obama years, black unemployment in America skyrocketed. Black families lost jobs, lost their homes, and lost hope. Less than two years into the Trump presidency and Black unemployment is at record lows, new Black-owned business startups are at record highs. Jobs, homes, and hope are returning to Black communities all across America and yet these city ‘leaders’ claim to not support the Trump administration and wish to punish a kind and brilliant man like Dr. Ben Carson, one of their own who succeeded despite overwhelming societal obstacles. What they are doing is akin to strapping him to a tree and lashing his back for daring to leave the Democrat plantation.

Appalling.

Illegals Climb Decrepit Border Fence Into America – Where Is Trump? (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Border officials added razor wire to the top and bottom of the fence at the Border State Park that divides San Diego from Tijuana, Mexico overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning, according to Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Katie Waldman. She released a few photos showing the newly added protective measure. (It appears the Trump administration acted quickly to halt the illegal advances over the fence, though, it is certain more such attempts will be made soon up and down the southern border. But for now – WELL DONE PRESIDENT TRUMP!)

Original Story:

Disheartening video shows masses of illegal immigrants climbing the decrepit border fence that separates California and Mexico. Reports indicate at least some of those crossing into the United States were part of the now infamous ‘human caravan’ from Central America. They also appear to be almost exclusively young and male, a stark contrast to the Establishment Media reports of women and children that are so often shown on television.

Via Fox 5 San Diego:

The U.S. Border Patrol sent a news release stating it believes some of the people at the fence are from the caravan that’s been traveling through Mexico from Honduras.

One man who happened to be on the north side of the border while visiting the area described being entertained by the gathering.

“I was very surprised how many people are here and how many different officials are here, it seems like there’s something going on it’s not normal to have this many resources tied up all these vehicles saw armored car coming down the road it just seemed more than just an average day,” said Greg Boldner.

——————

Social media response to the above footage has been contrasted by applause from the far left and anger from those wanting safe and secure U.S. borders. Some are going so far as to wonder publicly how President Trump’s tough talk on illegal immigration appears to be falling far short of reality as thousands of illegals continue to pour into the United States every week—many of which are believed to be voting in our elections.

REPORT: Hey, Republicans, If You Want To Win Elections In 2020 You Better Embrace Trump Now

The results of 2018 made it clear that if Republicans want to win elections they need to make sure to do at least one thing right—support/embrace President Trump and his America First Agenda.

Via The Daily Caller:

It is well-documented that both political parties in Congress have figured out how to use the levers of power — to stay in power. Congressional leaders, especially those in the majority, use their positions to raise millions of dollars in campaign contributions. Given that money usually equates to campaign success for the majority, one must work pretty hard to lose control of the House of Representatives. But it can be done, as Democrats demonstrated in 1994, Republicans in 2006, Democrats in 2010, and Republicans again in 2018.

As a political scientist and former congressman, I understand that it’s difficult to know exactly why voters reject any candidate. However, flipping the House is pretty simple to explain. In fact, both Speakers Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) offered the same answer: hyper-localize your race — that is, ignore national issues and focus like a laser on local issues. Unfortunately for Republicans, the advice only works Democrats.

Don’t agree with me? Ask Senators-elect Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), and Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.). President Trump and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) successfully nationalized multiple Senate races, with the help provided by radical leftist opposition to Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Senate (and a few House) candidates who joined in the nationalization effort were rewarded and won.

Back to the House. The speaker and his affiliated PACs spent months running away from national issues. As a result, the one big achievement of the Ryan speakership — historic tax reform — was ignored by most voters, and the ancillary strong economy didn’t translate into strong support for House Republicans. Instead, the man who most successfully seized credit for a booming economy was the same man that establishment Republicans and consultants counseled candidates to avoid: President Donald Trump. (Note: this was the very same strategy implemented by House Republicans back in 2016, and despite their very best efforts to shun Trump, voters rewarded them anyway with his massive coattails. Trust me: I was in on these very discussions.)

Image result for Paul Ryan scumbag

With this Republican unwillingness to team up with Trump and his economy, voters struggled to recall anything positive delivered by the House majority. All they could remember were failed promises. For instance, after eight years of campaign pledges, congressional Republicans kept ObamaCare — despite all of its many failures. And instead of balancing the budget, Republicans passed the biggest budget in history. With no national vision by Republican leaders, combined with the dramatic failures to deliver and no Democrats to blame, no amount of hyper-localizing their races by talking about opioids, open spaces, or over-regulation could save dozens of Republican candidates.

However, for Democrats, hyper-localizing is political heaven. If you look back at the two recent times Democrats were kicked out of the House majority, it was after they openly admitted their grandiose visions for big government — first with Clinton and then with Obama. In both 1994 and 2010, voters rose up and said enough is enough. In other years, Democrats slowly and methodically plodded along their progressive path without riling up the too much opposition, and they were rewarded with seemingly permanent majorities. But when you nationalize healthcare or pass a trillion-dollar stimulus, that simply reveals too much of the Democrat agenda for a lot of voters.

So, nationalizing is good for Republicans, but it’s bad for Democrats. Hyper-localizing is good for Democrats, but it’s horrible for Republicans. Where does this leave House Republicans for the next two years?

First, 2018 isn’t over yet. There are ample lame-duck opportunities for Republicans to begin reestablishing trust with their voters by making a down payment on Trump’s wall, supporting Trump’s executive rollback of Obamacare, cutting government spending, and approving dozens of Trump appointees. They even have a chance to tackle entitlement spending before Paul Ryan retires, by including food stamp work requirements in the Farm Bill.

Second, whether lame-duck Republicans keep their word or not, the incoming House minority has one path back to the majority: Defend President Trump, the conservative agenda, and the strong economy from the socialist wing of the Democratic Party. There will be Democratic investigation after investigation, congressional letters infinitum, and subpoenas galore. But by standing with the president, his appointees, and his voter base, House Republicans will help nationalize the election and likely be rewarded with a majority in 2021. A House Democrat majority and a loud socialist Senate minority can play havoc with Republicans for two years, but President Trump has his own pen and phone.

Last, a note of warning to Washington, D.C. Republicans and the center-right movement: Beware of Google and the social media giants of YouTube, Facebook, Twitter. They have the means, motive, and opportunity to ensure this nationalization strategy fails. As the most powerful sector of the economy, these corporate giants have the means to influence elections — certainly more than a few Russian bots! Leaked videos reveal massive anti-Trump, pro-socialism groupthink, proving they have the motive. And with their nearly complete monopoly of the most impactful medium in the modern world, no one can argue that they don’t have the opportunity.

The next two years could help shape the future of the country — and, indeed, the world — for years to come. Republicans can’t afford to ignore the lessons of 2018.

———————-

President Trump amassed an impressive list of 2018 Midterm victories for those candidates he supported. He also focused on the Senate more than the House. The results appear to compliment that fact and the reality that the ‘Trump effect’ is real and for Republicans greatly improves a candidate’s chances of winning. 


 

CNN’s Acosta vs Trump White House Lawsuit Reads Like It Was Written In Crayon

CNN, apparently not satisfied with merely having nearly cornered the market on fake news, is going for the most incompetent news network as well. Most have likely heard about its attempt to sue the Trump White House (and a Secret Service agent—stay classy, CNN) for having revoked bratty correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass. Funny thing is, that lawsuit is now exposing CNN for how little it actually knows about anything—including the U.S. Constitution, the truth, and basic good manners.

Image result for Jim Acosta temper tantrum

Via The Daily Caller:

CNN and Jim Acosta’s lawsuit against the White House, which alleges First and Fifth Amendment violations, contains several factual inaccuracies.

CNN announced Tuesday morning that it was filing suit against the White House for revoking Chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s hard press pass.

The White House took Acosta’s pass last week after a contentious exchange with President Donald Trump during a post-midterm press conference. When a White House intern tried to pass the microphone to the next reporter, Acosta physically prevented the intern from taking the microphone.

In the official lawsuit, CNN makes several errors in its recounting of the events of the press conference that led to the revocation of Acosta’s pass.

Related image

1. Mischaracterizes Acosta’s Questioning

In point 33 of the lawsuit, CNN claimed that Acosta started his exchange with “a question about one of President Trump’s statements during the midterm campaign — namely, whether a caravan making its way to the United States from Central America constitutes ‘an invasion’ of the country.”

Video of Acosta’s line of questioning showed that he first promised to “challenge” the president and gave his own opinion that it is incorrect to characterize the caravan as an invasion. He finally asked why Trump called the caravan an invasion.

CNN also claimed that the president “declined to respond” in this point — except Trump responded to Acosta by explaining that they both have a “difference of opinion” on how to characterize the caravan. The president also denied that he “demonized immigrants,” per a second question from Acosta, explaining that there is real video of caravan members forcing their way through Mexico’s border.

Acosta asked the president two distinct questions — as is standard for reporters — and had several follow-ups, essentially creating a debate between himself and the president. The CNN reporter demanded yet another question when the intern came to take the microphone from him.

2. Claims All Reporters Used The Mic To Ask Questions

In the aforementioned part of the lawsuit, CNN insisted that Acosta was “speaking through a hand-held microphone, as did all of the White House journalists who asked questions.”

However, CNN analyst April Ryan shouted questions at the president later in the press conference despite not having a microphone. In fact, Ryan’s questions interrupted The Daily Caller’s Saagar Enjeti — who had a microphone at the time and was called on by the president.

3. Ignores Acosta’s Repeated Interruptions

CNN noted in its lawsuit that after Acosta’s debate with the president, Trump called on NBC’s Peter Alexander. CNN, however, blamed the president for returning “to his criticisms of CNN seconds later” without noting that the president was responding to Acosta’s own repeated interruptions.

Despite Alexander having the microphone and attempting to ask the president a question, Acosta again stood up from his seat and tried to battle the president on his “enemy of the people” line.

That was when Trump responded by labeling Acosta the “enemy of the people.”

4. Refuses To Acknowledge Acosta Physically Prevented Intern From Taking Mic

CNN skirts around the scuffle between Acosta and the intern who was tasked with managing the microphone by obfuscating the fact that Acosta used his arm to prevent the intern from taking the microphone, as her job entails.

In two different references, CNN says “Acosta’s arm appears to move only as a response to a tussle for the microphone” and that “Acosta was only attempting to hold onto the microphone as the staffer tried to grab it from him.”

The unaltered video does show, however, that Acosta clearly used his left arm to physically block the intern.

5. Inaccurately Suggests A Named Reporter Was At The Press Conference

CNN claimed in point 40 that The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Chuck Ross, who disputed the White House’s claim that Acosta “place[d] his hands” on the intern, was present at the press conference in question.

“Members of the media who attended the press conference and saw the encounter disputed Press Secretary Sanders’s characterization of the account,” the lawsuit claimed before citing a tweet by Ross.

Ross was not, in fact, present at the press conference and does not even report from Washington, DC.

“I was not at the presidential press conference as CNN suggests in its lawsuit,” Ross said in a statement to The Daily Caller. “I stand by my tweet, though I regret that CNN is ignoring the dozens of other tweets I’ve posted criticizing the network for its biased coverage and refusal to provide transparency on its false reports regarding Donald Trump Jr. and other topics.”

————–

CNN has once again exposed itself as a parody of a news network and not a real one concerned with the truth and/or facts. Everything is biased opinion represented by the comically petulant Jim Acosta. 


 

POTUS Trump Prepares To ‘Clean House’ As War With Democrats Looms In 2019

Trump planning shakeup, eyeing new chief of staff and DHS secretary: Sources

President Donald Trump is considering yet another shakeup of his administration, preparing to remove Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and looking at possible replacements for Chief of Staff John Kelly, including Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff Nick Ayers, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter.

Nielsen, who became secretary at Homeland Security when John Kelly left DHS to become Trump’s chief of staff, is expected to leave her role in the coming weeks and could be asked to resign, according to sources. However, Kelly is fighting to delay her departure, the sources said.

PHOTO: Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen speak to the media during the daily briefing in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House, June 18, 2018.

“The Secretary is honored to lead the men and women of DHS and is committed to implementing the President’s security-focused agenda to protect Americans from all threats and will continue to do so,” DHS spokesperson Tyler Houlton said in a statement Tuesday.

The Washington Post first reported the news of Nielsen’s potential departure. The White House did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment about the potential changes.

Meanwhile, Kelly’s job is also uncertain and his fate has been in question for some time. Sources tell ABC News that within the last few weeks, the president has once again discussed Kelly’s fate with many of his top advisers; Kelly has continued to grow distant with the president, sources said.

PHOTO: White House Chief of Staff John Kelly listens to President Donald Trump during a working lunch with governors in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, in Washington, DC, June 21, 2018.

…Trump has previously wanted to fire Nielsen, but Kelly would frequently jump in and threaten to resign — his threats delaying the move, sources have told ABC. They say there were times during the administration where Kelly and Nielsen even discussed leaving the administration together.

The president has said privately for months he doesn’t believe that Nielsen is doing enough to enforce stricter immigration policies.

Just last month, there was a highly contentious confrontation between Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton over increased border crossings. Sources tell ABC News the fight had to do specifically with Nielsen’s job performance.

“There’s no love lost between either of them,” a senior administration official tells ABC News referring to Nielsen and Trump. “All that has kept Nielsen on was not her loyalty to the president but desire to protect the department from his whims and to let her people do their jobs.”

—————-

What goes unsaid in the ABC report is the president’s eye on the new Democrat-controlled Congress. He is hoping to be able to work with Democrats on issues centered around trade, infrastructure, and lowering the cost of healthcare. To do so he knows he’ll need a White House staff that can conduct itself with laser-like focus. As such, those not totally loyal to the cause are to be removed and replaced.

President Trump has a far better understanding of the D.C. Swamp than he did two years earlier and remains confident he can continue to deliver on the promises he made to the American people—Democrats, the media, and never-Trump Republicans, be damned.


 

How John McCain’s No Vote To Repeal & Replace Obamacare Helped Dems Win House In 2018

For years Republicans (including John McCain) raised a lot of cash on their promise to get rid of Obamacare. Then, when Donald Trump shocked the political world and won the White House, they were in a position to actually keep that promise to voters. Instead, then-Senator McCain (along with Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski) voted no on repeal and yes on keeping Obamacare fully intact. One outgoing member of Congress now thinks that is when Republicans’ hopes for keeping the House in 2018 were doomed to fail and that McCain’s no vote had nothing to do with doing what was right for Arizona voters but rather was meant to feed McCain’s desire to rebuke President Trump.

Image result for evil John McCain

Via Politico:

An outgoing Republican lawmaker on Sunday blamed former Sen. John McCain for the GOP’s loss of the House majority in last week’s elections, writing in The Wall Street Journal that it was McCain’s decisive vote against legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare that led to a wave of Democratic midterm victories.

Jason Lewis, a Minnesota congressman who was unseated last Tuesday by Democrat Angie Craig, claimed in his op-ed that McCain’s thumbs-down vote against a so-called skinny repeal of the Affordable Care Act “prompted a ‘green wave’ of liberal special-interest money” that he said allowed Democrats to hammer Republicans on the issue of pre-existing conditions.

Lewis wrote in his op-ed that the failed Senate vote allowed Democrats to campaign against Republicans with the claim that the GOP wanted to remove protections for those with pre-existing conditions, a keystone of many Democratic campaigns leading up to the midterms.

The freshman congressman argued that the House bill would have “[alleviated] the pre-existing condition problem,” rather than getting rid of the protections altogether as he accused Democrats of falsely claiming. PolitFact has rated claims that the House bill wouldn’t eliminate protections for pre-existing conditions as “mostly false.”

Although McCain was one of three GOP lawmakers to vote against the “skinny” repeal, Lewis singled out McCain for his “no” vote — which came after he criticized Republicans for trying to push a repeal bill through and called for the return of regular order — as an unnecessary attempt to slight President Donald Trump.

“The late Arizona senator’s grievance with all things Trump was well known, but this obsession on the part of ‘Never Trump’ Republicans has to end,” Lewis wrote. “Disapprove of the president’s style if you like, but don’t sacrifice sound policy to pettiness.”

—————

The above sentiment by Congressman Jason Lewis is true. John McCain was very much a willing part of the “we (Republicans) are willing to lose 2018 if it means hurting Trump” sentiment. Well, they got what they wanted. Democrats took the House, (while still attempting to steal the Senate) and President Trump’s America First agenda is now facing even greater political opposition from the globalist, America Last, D.C. Swamp. John McCain is gone but the political corruption he helped expand from one coast of America to the other, very much remains.


 

A Warm-Up For 2020: Arizona’s Maricopa County Just Stole The Senate Election

Joe Arpaio was Maricopa County Sheriff for twenty-four years, serving from 1993 until 2017. He was likely one of the most conservative sheriffs in the entire country, particularly when it came to illegal immigration. Maricopa County itself has long been a right-leaning county, even despite Pheonix being inside its borders. In 2016 it voted for Donald Trump by nearly 5% over Hillary Clinton. And yet, just two years later, we are to believe this very same longtime conservative county helped to defeat a former female fighter pilot for the Senate in favor of a far-left anti-war activist who once said American should ‘join the Taliban’ after the 911 tragedy? It’s inconceivable. Yet that’s exactly what Maricopa election officials would have us believe.

Related image

Look at the above picture. REALLY look at it.

Then check out the below facts regarding how Maricopa County has voted in the past:

2016: Donald Trump wins Maricopa County 49.1% to 45.7% to Hillary Clinton. 

2012: Mitt Romney wins Maricopa County by DOUBLE DIGITS over Barack Obama. Sheriff Joe Arpaio won re-election as sheriff by a comfortable margin as well.

Something happens in 2016 that might explain how Maricopa suddenly went from a right-leaning county in 2016 to a seemingly left-leaning county in 2018. This man was elected to be put in charge of all Maricopa County elections:

Image result for Adrian Fontes

His name is Adrion Fontes. He is a far left former Bernie Sanders supporter who claimed prior to his own election victory in 2016 to usher in a new era where ‘all votes would be counted.’

Indeed.

During the 2018 primary elections, voting abnormalities were rampant throughout Maricopa County. Ballot security was cited as one of the major issues. Initially, Fontes promised he would share a post-midterm election report with the public. After county attornies urged him not to, he reneged on that promise and the report never saw the light of day but his job overseeing the November 2018 Midterms remained intact as Fontes declared more people were voting than ever in Maricopa County.

Uh-huh.

Consider this, Republican Governor Doug Ducey was re-elected this November by a margin of 1,218,765 votes vs 892,435 for his Democrat opponent. That’s a total of 2,111,200 votes.

In the other statewide election, the Arizona senate race, 2,162,522 votes were cast, meaning more people voted in the senate race than the governor’s race.

That’s highly unusual.

Now consider this – approximately HALF the total Arizona vote count is coming from Maricopa County. Wait, it gets better.

Did you know that more people voted for the 2018 Senate race in Maricopa County than voted for the 2016 presidential race? About 100,000 more.

Historically, off-year elections have a lower turnout, not a dramatic increase and yet we are now supposed to believe that in Maricopa County far more people voted in 2018 than 2016 and not only that, but more people voted for the senate race than the Arizona governor’s race.

WHAT?

Why would that be?

Perhaps the answer is this: governors can’t impeach a president – but senators can. 

Is it so far to suggest a far-left Democrat like Adrion Fontes would be part of a plan to put in place an equally far-left senator who would be more than happy to jump on the anti-Trump bandwagon as a member of the U.S. Senate? And if Maricopa County already accounts for half of Arizona’s vote total, is it beyond the realm of possibility that 100,000 more votes could suddenly be manufactured via illegal voter counts?

No, it wouldn’t. In fact, it would a very-very easy thing to do given how little oversight there is to our elections. How many times have districts tabulated more votes than actual registered voters? Answer – a lot. Places like Detroit, Philadelphia, Austin, Broward County, it happens all the time but those results are quickly certified and the world moves on.

What happened last week in Maricopa County is more than the usual baked-in voter fraud, though. 100,000 ‘new’ votes suddenly appearing during an off-year election that also happens to overwhelmingly favor the Democrat candidate?

Yeah.

And guess what? Maricopa County is likely a test run for 2020. The Establishment has no intention of allowing President Trump a second term.

100,000 ‘new’ votes in Maricopa County will suddenly be 10,000,000 million ‘new’ votes all across America and that, as they say, will be that.

You don’t actually think those caravans massing at our southern border are here out of love for the United States do you?

Let them in and let them vote. That’s now one of the foundational tenets of the Democrat Party platform.

Depressed yet?

POTUS Trump Directly Calls Out Voter Fraud Attempt In Arizona: America’s Cold Civil War Is Now Heating Up

The Democrat Machine has been stuffing ballots for decades with little to no oversight and when claims are made of wrongdoing, the Establishment Media is quick to scoff at and then ignore the issue altogether. That is getting tougher to do now as President Trump is calling out what appears to be blatant election fraud in Arizona—a conservative-leaning state we are supposed to believe suddenly elected a Code Pink anti-war protestor who urged Americans to join the Taliban over a female military fighter pilot. Yeah…

This is the election scandal the president is referencing in his recent tweet to his tens of millions of supporters which outlines alleged widespread irregularities that are overwhelmingly favoring the Democrat Senate candidate in what is historically a Republican-leaning county:

The Democrat Machine appears to have gone into desperation mode in trying to steal some critical Senate and governor seats in Florida, Georgia, and Arizona, though, as evidence appears to indicate election wrongdoings in those three states it is more than likely similar wrongdoing occurred across the country. It is also why Democrats and their media cohorts are so determined to push back against the president’s interim Attorney General who would be in a position to place the full might and power of the federal government’s investigative power into the now-multiple claims of election fraud, among other things.

Add to that the increasingly precarious health of liberal Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg and the motivation for the far left’s reckless desperation becomes clear.

America’s cold civil war is now heating up.


 

“The War For The Soul Of America.”

Fantastic article out today via Patrick Buchanan that is well worth the time to read and share with others. Mr. Buchanan is right when he says there is a war within America being waged right now. One side demands President Trump be gone. The other side demands he stay—and it will likely prove to be a fight to the finish.

The war in Washington will not end until the presidency of Donald Trump ends. Everyone seems to sense that now.

This is a fight to the finish.

A postelection truce that began with Trump congratulating House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — “I give her a great deal of credit for what she’s done and what she’s accomplished” — was ancient history by nightfall.

With the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his replacement by his chief of staff, Matthew Whitaker, the long-anticipated confrontation with Robert Mueller appears at hand.

Sessions had recused himself from the oversight role of the special counsel’s investigation into Russiagate.

Whitaker has definitely not.

Before joining Justice, he said that the Mueller probe was overreaching, going places it had no authority to go and that it could be leashed by a new attorney general and starved of funds until it passes away.

Whitaker was not chosen to be merely a placeholder until a new AG is confirmed. He was picked so he can get the job done.

And about time.

For two years, Trump has been under a cloud of unproven allegations and suspicion that he and top campaign officials colluded with Vladimir Putin’s Russia to thieve and publish the emails of the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

It is past time for Mueller to prove these charges or concede he has a busted flush, wrap up his investigation and go home.

And now, in T.S. Eliot’s words, Trump appears to have found “the strength to force the moment to its crisis.”

His attitude toward Mueller’s probe is taking on the aspect of Andrew Jackson’s attitude toward Nicholas Biddle’s Second Bank of the United States: It’s “trying to kill me, but I will kill it.”

Trump has been warned by congressional Democrats that if he in any way impedes the work of Mueller’s office, he risks impeachment.

Well, let’s find out.

If the House Judiciary Committee of incoming chairman Jerrold Nadler wishes to impeach Trump for forcing Mueller to fish or cut bait, Trump’s allies should broaden the debate to the real motivation here of the defeated establishment: It detests the man the American people chose to lead their country and thus wants to use its political and cultural power to effect his removal.

Even before news of Sessions’ departure hit Wednesday, Trump was subjected to an Antifa-style hassling by the White House press corps.

One reporter berated the president and refused to surrender the microphone. Others shouted support for his antics. A third demanded to know whether Trump’s admission that he’s a “nationalist” would give aid and comfort to “white nationalists.”

By picking up the credentials of CNN’s Jim Acosta and booting him out of the White House, Trump has set a good precedent.

Freedom of the press does not mean guaranteed immunity of the press from the same kind of abuse the press directs at the president.

John F. Kennedy was beloved by the media elite. Yet JFK canceled all White House subscriptions to the New York Herald Tribune and called the publisher of The New York Times to get him to pull reporter David Halberstam out of Vietnam for undermining U.S. morale in a war in which Green Berets were dying.

Some journalists have become Trump haters with press passes. And Trump is right to speak truth to mainstream media power and to accord to the chronically hostile press the same access to the White House to which Robert De Niro is entitled. Since the days of John Adams, the White House has been the president’s house, not the press’s house.

Pelosi appears the favorite to return as speaker of the House. But she may find her coming days in the post she loves to be less-than-happy times.

Some of her incoming committee chairs — namely, Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, and Elijah Cummings — seem less interested in legislative compromises than in rummaging through White House files for documents to damage the president, starting with his tax returns.

To a world watching with fascination this death struggle convulsing our capital, one wonders how attractive American democracy appears.

And just how much division can this democracy stand?

We know what the left thinks of Trump’s “base.”

Hillary Clinton told us. Half his supporters, she said, are a “basket of deplorables” who are “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it.” Lately, America’s populist right has been called fascist and neo-Nazi.

How can the left “unite” with people like that? Why should the left not try to drive such “racists” out of power by any means necessary?

This is the thinking that bred Antifa.

As for those on the right — as they watch the left disparage the old heroes, tear down their monuments, purge Christianity from their public schools — they have come to conclude that their enemies are at root anti-Christian and anti-American.

How do we unify a nation where the opposing camps believe this?

What the Trump-establishment war is about is the soul of America, a war in which a compromise on principle can be seen as a betrayal.

MUST SEE VIDEO: Israeli Crowd Boos Hollywood Hack Who Attempts To Protest President Trump

There has been no greater presidential friend to the nation of Israel than President Donald Trump. That fact is clearly lost on empty-headed Hollywood puppets like producer Jason Blum (a longtime friend/associate of disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein) and is best known for producing the Paranormal film series. Watch as the audience during a film festival in Israel boos Blum’s attempt to accuse President Trump of anti-Semitism, a ludicrous charge that flies in the face of fact. Without a biased American media there to protect and promote his false claims, he soon faces the ire of an audience calling him out on his bullsh*t until eventually one of the event’s organizers pulls him off the stage as the Jewish audience cheers. The true Jewish people of this world love and respect President Trump.

To Anyone Who Says The Media Isn’t Attacking President Trump Show Them This Vid Of How They Lovingly Embraced Barack Obama

The same White House but two very different presidents. It’s 2010 and Barack Obama is into the second year of his first term. The economy is in a shambles. Voters have just swept Democrats out of power in a historic House turnover that hasn’t been seen in two generations. The world is more dangerous. The deficit is exploding. The enemies of America are on the march all across the globe. And what do White House reporters do when Mr. Obama steps up to the podium? THEY CHEER HIM A HELLO GREETING. They smile, gush, and wink at each other.

It’s a completely different mindset from what is going on now with President Trump. The media is now in a 24/7 attack mode cycle, determined to do all they can to disrupt and possibly even destroy the Trump White House. Day after day it’s like this. Reporters like CNN’s Jim Acosta, who soft-gloved the Obama White House for eight years, now shout, talk out of turn, and go so far as shoving female White House interns. It’s all propaganda all the time.

Now contrast that with a White House press conference this week where a PBS reporter actually stands up and makes a statement posing as a question in which she declares President Trump as being a racist. This, after eight years of Establishment Media ignoring Barack Obama’s Black Nationalist past via his 20-year relation with a Chicago activist church led by a Black Power pastor who declared the United States and Israel as evil after the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks.

These reporters cheer Obama and throw vile accusations at President Trump.

That isn’t journalism. That is one-sided activism, self-promotion, and a disrespectful disgrace.

“Mueller Is Coming For President Trump’s Family”

Despite the Establishment Media’s attempt to portray him as an overly sensitive hothead, President Trump is a man with remarkably thick skin after having spent decades in the public spotlight. He does have an Achilles heel though—a profoundly deep love for his family. 

It is that love which Special Counsel Robert Mueller is said to be targeting as he attempts to revitalize what has been a failed and costly investigation into non-existant Russia collusion during the 2016 Election.

It is the last-option target D.C. Whispers outlined nearly two years earlier. The details that were the impetus of that earlier warning are now coming to light as President Trump’s many Deep State enemies scramble to push back against his reorganizing of the Department of Justice following former Attorney General Jeff Session’s just-announced resignation.

Unlike previous administrations in which the AG could act as a powerful firewall against politically-motivated investigations, (be they legitimate or not) Sessions immediately recused himself from the entirety of the Mueller investigation thus leaving the Trump White House fully exposed to a myriad of Deep State abuses.

Despite that, not only has President Trump survived, but he has thrived, much to the frustration of his many D.C. Swamp enemies. So, now comes the attempt to use against him the thing the president cherishes above all else—his family.

Image result for Mueller vs Donald Trump Jr

Donald Trump Jr. is said to be the first in line to face Mueller’s fire. Second is Ivanka and her husband and Trump son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Should those three attempts fail to buckle the knees of the president then Eric Trump will likely face manufactured allegations regarding matters said to be totally unrelated to politics.

Highly-placed media figures are already preparing to work directly with the Mueller investigation in order to extract the greatest damage possible to the president and his family. Not all is lost for President Trump though. Far from it. What Mueller and the media were not anticipating was such a good showing for Republicans during the Midterm Election cycle. More Republicans will soon be part of the Senate which provided the Trump White House the means to replace Jeff Sessions as Attorney General with Mathew Whittaker, someone who has previously indicated his alarm over the abuses of power that have been running rampant within the Mueller investigation. It is a miscalculation the president’s enemies have not accounted for. Up to now, Trump has fought them almost entirely alone without the benefit of a pro-Trump DOJ.

That’s about to change.

It should also be noted it’s about to change at the very moment the Deep State prepares to use the president’s family as leverage against him.

The wrath of a President of the United States can be a terribly powerful thing to behold.

Such wrath is already there but the Deep State is now adding the protective instincts of a loving father into the mix.

That could prove a grievous error that will cost them dearly.

Winter is indeed coming. War drums now boom in the halls of power throughout Washington D.C.  as a great man with great power prepares to unleash it fully upon those who would attempt to harm those he loves.

Woe to those who stand in his way.

Did CNN’s Jim Acosta Just Assault A Female White House Staffer? See Shocking Video Evidence Here.

It’s now the big takeaway from today’s White House press conference where at one point CNN’s Jim Acosta refuses to give up the mic and is seen by many there to forcefully smack down the arm of a female White House staffer who was attempting to give the mic to another reporter. Even liberal viewers of the following video now want Acosta to be banned from future press conferences after this display. CNN is hoping the video will be forgotten. It’s up to YOU to make sure it is not. WATCH AND SHARE WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

Washington Post Headline: Democrats May Have Won The House But Trump Won The Election

A rare moment of political truth coming from the Washington Post this morning. The ‘Blue Wave’ fizzled. Democrats were hoping for landslide victories across the nation. That didn’t happen and in fact, Republicans strengthened their position in the far more important Senate. Historically, President Trump and his party did far better than most during a first-term Midterm cycle. (About 200% better than Barack Obam did by the way.) Ignore the media spin. The real Democrat power players are not happy with last night’s results an for good reason. Their victories were far fewer and less significant than what they were expecting.


 

Will America Vote Red Today? Let’s All Hope So…

The stakes have never been higher as the entirety of the Trump economic miracle for America is what is truly on the ballot today. Democrats, the Media, and globalist powers funded largely by Chinese interests have spent hundreds of millions of dollars hoping to convince voters to vote against their own better futures. Millions of jobs created, historic low unemployment, historically depressed communities now seeing billions of dollars pouring into reinvestment ventures, The Trump Miracle is real and it is working for everyone regardless of race, religion, gender, or political affiliation. Will you vote to keep that miracle safe or see it torn apart by Democrat-led partisan politics of the worst kind?

It’s now up to you, America.
