Tough Funding negotiations ahead for Schumer at the WH as news of a dossier FISA epic smoking gun memo hits the news We are just now receiving reports that the FISA investigation in Congress has found a major smoking gun memo.

Things are about to seriously interesting. I would love to be a fly on the wall at that meeting. –##– ‘Worse Than Watergate’: Republicans uncover FISA memo … Continue reading

Could the Sanctuary City Case stop the overreach of local judges

The ‘Sanctuary Cities’ Case Should Make Courts Stop Issuing National Rules For Local Cases Chicago’s ‘sanctuary’ cities case offers an important opportunity to challenge a dangerous practice of relatively recent advent: granting a nationwide injunction in a local dispute. The Federalist Margot Cleveland January 18, 2018 On Friday, the Department of Justice heads to the 27th Floor of the Dirksen Federal Building in downtown Chicago to defend its August 2017 decision to withhold federal funding from “sanctuary” cities. There, the DOJ will argue to a three-judge panel of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals that a lower court erred in … Continue reading

On Immigration Reform – Congress Time To End Procrastination

On Immigration Reform – Congress Time To End Procrastination I went back through the bills submitted to Congress every year since 2003 to see exactly what if anything has happened along the way concerning illegals and lawful immigration. I do NOT agree with the method Obama used in his illegal executive order to pinpoint a few members of the illegal immigrant community. However, I do see his frustration causing some of the action as I also see in large part the frustration of those who want to become citizens that may have been here for many years. I do NOT condone … Continue reading

Building a Movement & Mobilizing Our Supporters “Planned Parenthood has spent more than 100 years organizing and building support to protect access to care and demand equality and opportunity for all. A hostile administration in Washington hasn’t changed that — in fact, it’s made us bolder and stronger.”   ACLJ January 11, 2018 Planned Parenthood just released their 2016–2017 annual report. The findings are clear: over 320,000 abortions committed in the last year; over half a billion in government funding; nearly $100 million in profit (a staggering 27% increase over the prior year).

Fusion GPS – Transcript vs MSM

On January 9, 2018, Senator Feinstein did the unthinkable for someone who has had so many years of service in the US Senate. She went against Senate protocol and released the entire Senate Judiciary Committee Interview Transcript for Fusion GPS CEO and co-founder Glenn Simpson to the public. It has created a huge firestorm in the media and a rift in the protocol of the Senate especially for a closed-door meeting. In August 2017, the Senate Judiciary Committee was to vote on whether the transcript would be released to the public though Grassley presumed they would be released. Nothing appeared … Continue reading

Immigration Reform, Case in point – Trump was right

This next story from the January DoJ press releases had me stumped so I had to do a bit of research. Back story: Cameroon: Cameroon’s divide has its roots in the end of World War One, when the League of Nations divided the former German colony of Kamerun between the allied French and British victors with the French ultimately assuming control. In the mid-20th century Cameroon was largely a trust territory under France supervised by the United Nations. As a country Cameroon achieved independence on January 1, 1960. Then in October 2017, a boiling cauldron of clashes between French and … Continue reading

Coincidence or Somehow Related to Uranium One Activities

Since nothing about the sentencing and indictments appeared in the news until now for the Uranium One people, I have to wonder if somehow this group of indictments and sentences might also be tied into the whole mess as well. You decide. Connecticut Man Sentenced To 1 Year In Federal Prison For Conspiracy And Bribery DoJ Press Release January 10, 2018 Greenbelt, Maryland – United States District Judge Theodore D. Chuang sentenced Eugene Ostrovsky, age 57, of Stamford, Connecticut to a split sentence of 6 months imprisonment followed by two years of supervised release, the first 6 months of which … Continue reading

Dominoes Are Falling In Uranium One Deal – MSM Hid These Until Now

Dominoes Starting To Fall In Uranium One Deal     DoJ January 12, 2018 Greenbelt, Maryland – An indictment against a former co-president of a Maryland-based transportation company that provides services for the transportation of nuclear materials to customers in the United States and abroad, was unsealed today for his alleged role in a scheme that involved the bribery of an official at a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation. Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, Maryland, was charged in an 11-count indictment with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit … Continue reading

Bi-Partisan DACA Bill – Not

When was Obama wrote his executive order on DACA, his action was in many ways unlawful. He bypassed the rule of law and unilaterally decided to assist undocumented children of illegal aliens. Perhaps it was in frustration because his own party along with Republican counterparts chose to ignore a glaring problem that should have been addressed–a new Immigration Policy. Perhaps, he simply chose this as a way to force the issue and have congress finally get off their duffs and act. The problem was that the executive order was only a temporary fix with a sunset clause. It threw immigration … Continue reading

Feinstein Sounds More Like She Needs A Psych Eval Instead Of Trump As Dems Are Ranting

    Feinstein Admits She Was Mentally Unstable When Releasing Fusion GPS Transcript Zero Hedge Tyler Durden January 11, 2018 Amid all the 25th Amendment malarkey being thrown at the president, it is ironic that Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein admitted a “bad cold” may have impaired her mental faculties and caused her to release Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony. This is the second excuse from Feinstein for her actions that so enraged Sen. Grassley. Earlier, as we detailed here, she admitted (then retracted) being “pressured” to release the transcripts. And now, as The Daily Caller’s Peter Hasson notes, … Continue reading

Another Trump Achievement -First DoD Department Wide Audit Underway

DoD Owes Taxpayers Full Accounting of Assets, Comptroller Tells House   For decades, IG auditors and the Office of Management has said that the Department of Defense needed a comprehensive audit. Resistance from inside the DoD, their insistence on autonomy, and the lack of will of congress members to demand have created a very poor understanding of the spending habits and use of taxpayer money within defense.  Speculation has been riff of massive overspending, unnecessary spending, and redundant spending for an equally long time. When President Trump came in, he campaigned on the promise of real “draining of the swamp.” … Continue reading

Trump tax law poised to create windfall for states

Trump tax law poised to create windfall for states   (How will it affect taxpayers if states don’t act quickly) The Hill Reid Wilson 1/09/18 When President Trump signed a massive tax overhaul late last month, congressional Republicans celebrated a job accomplished. But the work is just starting for state legislators, who are likely to see hundreds of millions of dollars in new revenue. Under the new law, budget analysts say taxpayers who receive a break on their federal forms are actually likely to spend more on their state taxes, unless state legislators act. And that’s setting off contentious fights … Continue reading

Single Pay Public Health Insurance — Busted For The Lie MSM Wants Us To Accept

  When Obamacare was first introduced, it was a compromise answer to what Obama really wanted-single payer public health insurance. His 2008 campaign platform proposed Obama-Biden health care plan would provide that “any American will have the opportunity to enroll in [a] new public plan.” Even in front of the AMA in 2009, he wanted one of the plans to include a public option. But, by the time it came to planning and voting on a healthcare bill, the public option had been removed. Perhaps someone had finally gotten through to him about how disastrous a public government-funded only healthcare … Continue reading

Is It Time To Call For A Reckoning and Hold DNC Responsible For Its Actions …

By having the DoJ file suit in court to ban it completely as a political party in the US or by having it completely remove its leaders and restructure the party?

Update on Fusion GPS for January 2018

Federal Judge Obliterates Fusion GPS’ Attempt To Hide Info From Investigators In Fusion GPS’ vague telling, they’ve been nothing but forthright with congressional investigative committees, which came as news to those committees.     The Federalist Mollie Hemingway January 5, 2018 On Tuesday, Fusion GPS founders Glenn Simpson and Peter Fritsch wrote an  an op-ed  for The New York Times. In it, they claimed they and their opposition research firm were nothing but an open book and were seeking greater transparency from three congressional committees who have been digging into the probe of Russian election meddling. All three committees have … Continue reading

Controversial Oil Pipeline Bringing Prosperity to North Dakota   The Post via Punching Bag Media by Kerry Lear January 6, 2018 Even though the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline project has been operational for only the last six months, it is already bringing substantial prosperity to North Dakota.

A Liberal Dose of Stupidity Leaving New England In Dangerous Situation This Winter

Fox Business reported on May 31, 2017 that the last coal-burning power plant in New England had been switched off in Somerset, MA. The Brayton Point Power Station has burned coal since 1963 along Mount Hope Bay in Somerset, near the Rhode Island border. It generated controversy for almost as long, with residents, fishermen and environmentalists decrying the damage that its cooling canals — nicknamed “killing canals” by activists in the 1970s — caused to fisheries. Ironically this closing was done practically the same day that Trump announced plans to withdraw from the climate change gathering. Brayton Point’s operators completed … Continue reading
