Mick Mulvaney Kicks Off Thursday Briefing With MAGA-nomics: POTUS’ Robust Economic/Infrastructure Plans

1 hour 20 min ago

Sarah Sanders kicked off a crowded White Hose briefing with an introduction to, Office of Management and Budget Director, Mick Mulvaney. Mulvaney efficiently outlined what the Trump administration’s ambitious economic plans are. Utilizing two screens, “MAGANOMICS” (a play on Make America Great Again) was displayed as he explained the term embodies a “unifying theme of just about everything that we do” economically; Mulvaney expressed his confidence that a 3% economic growth yield could be achieved under this administration. Read the transcript from Mulvaney’s full discussion below:

Thirty-five years ago, the situation the country was in had some similarities to where we were as we ended the Obama administration.  Things were kind of rough.  I was in the home building business.  My dad was; I was only 13 at the time.  And I remember what it was like.  We had stagflation, we had malaise, we had all these challenges that the country faced economically.

And in response to that, Ronald Reagan came out with Reaganomics — a term, by the way, that I’m not even sure he created.  I think his opposition used that as a derogatory term to begin with, but it came to be associated with his presidency.

And I think if we look back on it, we know what its basic, fundamental tenets were.  It was a monetary policy to fix inflation, tax cuts, spending restraints, and a little bit of regulatory relief.

Fast-forward to where we are today, here we are.  It’s been more than 10 years since our last year of a really healthy American economy, which we define as greater than 3 percent — or 3 percent growth.  And we think it’s time for the next iteration of that, the next plan.  And that is what we’ve put together as MAGAnomics.  It’s supposed to be this unifying theme of just about everything that we do.

You all have seen me up here before, when we walk through the budget.  You say, “Mulvaney, why are you doing this?  Why are you doing that?”  And I talked about the importance of getting back to 3 percent growth.

I talked about the historical importance of that, the historical achievability of that — about how if you’re 30 years old in this country, you’ve never had a job during your adult lifetime, in a healthy American economy, and you think that 1.9 or 2.1 or 2.5 percent growth is typical, and it doesn’t have to be.  It’s not.

I remember in the mid-1990s, when I had my first real job — if I had been fired, it wouldn’t have been that big a deal because I knew I could go find something else, because you could do that in a healthy economy.  I actually ended up quitting my job so that I could start my own business, because you know you can do that in a healthy economy.

It’s been a long time since we’ve been there.  And our fear is that if we don’t get back there quickly, there will be people who never know what 3 percent means.  There will be people who have forgotten what 3 percent can be like.  And I don’t think it should come as a surprise that there are some people who don’t want you to remember what 3 percent growth would be like, because it would be a tremendous sort of damnation of what happened in the previous administration.

So, what is MAGAnomics?  It is tax reform.  It is, what we’re calling the “regulatory accountability project” — regulatory accountability project.  It’s longer, but it’s at least a little bit more descriptive than “unified agenda.”  Took me about six months here to figure out what the unified agenda was.  And they told me, and I said, what is it really?  And they said, well, it’s a way to bring to some accountability to regulations.  I said, great, it’s now the regulatory accountability project.

Energy dominance is part of this.  Welfare reform is part of this.  Infrastructure is part of this.  Our trade policies is part of this.  Even the spending restraint that we tried to introduce in the budget is part of this.  All of those things are designed towards one common end, and that is 3 percent sustained economic growth in this country again.  We’ve done it before.  In fact, we’ve always done it.  The last 10 years was the first time we have not been able to do it, I think, ever.  We can do it again.  We absolutely fully believe that.

And I want to talk a little bit today about one piece of that, which is our deregulatory agenda.  The regulatory accountability project — used to be called the unified agenda — released — last night?  Today?

CZWARTACKI:  This morning.

MULVANEY:  This morning.  When the President came into office, he gave me some pretty specific instructions over the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs — what we call OIRA — O-I-R-A — part of OMB.  In fact, I still think OMB should be called OMBRA — the Office of Management and Budget and Regulatory Affairs.  That’s how important it is to us.  That’s the priority that the President has set for it over at OMB.  He said, look, get over there and tell everybody at all the agencies that we’re on a two-for-one policy on new regs.

You cannot put out a new reg until you get two old regs off the books.  That was our two-for-one policy.  He also said — and no new burden.  No new financial burden.  If you come out with a new reg that raises the burdens on the private sector by a dollar, you got to go find me a reg you get rid of to reduce that burden by a dollar.  So, zero net impact on the regulatory financial burden in this country.

This is our first chance today to sort of get a temperature check on how we are doing on that.  So the goal is two-for-one.  When it comes to major actions — we’re at 16 to 1.  Sixteen major deregulatory actions in the first six months of this administration.  There’s one new one.  Is anybody going to guess what it is?  Does somebody know?  No dentists here?  You know what it is?  Yes.  The dental amalgam rule.  Apparently we’re now regulating something to do with the stuff we put in our teeth when we get —

RESPONSE:    Mercury and waste water.

MULVANEY:  There you go.  All right?  So that’s the only significant new reg we put out in the first six months.  We’ve gotten rid of 16.  Twelve of those are CRAs you’re probably familiar with, and four of them have gone through the agency process and so forth.

But it doesn’t — it’s not just those big ones, okay?  The number that I use — 860 regulatory actions removed or withdrawn — 860.

By the way, I asked for a list of them, and I got news for you:  None of them are very sexy.  None of them are very glamorous.  None of them really rise to the level of getting national attention.  But think about that — 860 of them.  I describe it as that — sort of that slow accretion, that slow cancer that can come from regulatory burdens that we put on our people.

Ryan Zinke, over at the Department of Interior, has already made some changes on how they streamline the paperwork for outdoorsmen and outdoorswomen — people who want to go out in our national parks.  That’s really small.  We know that.  It’s not going to change the world.  But when you do that 860 times in the first six months, it can have a benefit.  Plus, if you’re a citizen and you’re not out there and it’s now easier for you to use the national parks, to use our public lands, that’s got to have a positive impact on you.  We think that it does.

By the way, of the 860, and this is one that I think — I don’t think anybody knows about this because I didn’t know about it until about 24 hours ago.  The Obama administration had a secret list of regs.  Back in 2011, they were doing their unified agenda.  They had a bunch of things that they wanted to regulate.  And what we’re hearing is that they just didn’t want to tell you about it.  They thought it would be bad for their reelection prospects in 2012, so they created a secret list of regs that were not disclosed to you folks, and we are disclosing it.

And by the way, when we threatened to disclose it, a lot of the agencies came up with those 860 things that we got rid of.  So there will be no more of that, by the way.  There will be none of that in this administration.  We will not have a secret list.  We will not have a hidden list of regulations that we’re thinking about doing but we’re not going to tell you about.  That’s going to end effective immediately.  In fact, it has already ended.  We’re not going to do that anymore.

By the way, where’s my stack?  So I’d love a little graphics.  This is the last week of the Obama administration — the regs put out by the Obama administration in their last week in office.  This is ours from our first week in office.  I can’t lift both of those together, can I?  I don’t think I can.

In the last six months here, the Obama administration put on over $6 billion in new regulatory burden.  The last six months, just over $6 billion.  We had zero.  In the first five months in their administration back in 2009, they had over $3 billion of new regs.  We cleared the decks of $22 million of regs.  So we actually went the other way.

So I cannot express to you enough how much things have changed when it comes to the regulatory burden, the attitudes towards regulations in this country, and you’re just going to see more of that for the next eight years.

RUSH Backs POTUS: Mueller Probe ‘Most MASSIVE Opposition Research Operation EVER Conducted’ in America

1 hour 37 min ago

Conservative talk show host legend, Rush Limbaugh took to the airwaves Thursday vigorously defending President Trump against special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

According to Information Liberation:

“[Mueller has] hired, as we all know now, a staff of at least 14 lawyers, and it may be more, and each of them have assistants and clerks,” Limbaugh said. “This is a massive, massive amount of people that Mueller has hired.”

Last I heard, they were all Hillary and Bill Clinton supporters and Obama supporters,” he said. “They were all either donors, fundraisers, bundlers. They are liberal activists for the Democrat Party, Clinton and Obama, and that’s who Mueller has hired.”

Limbaugh said: “They don’t have any limits. There are no parameters. The Justice Department has not limited the scope of Mueller’s investigation at all. So here’s what this also is. As it stands now, the Mueller investigation is probably going to be the biggest, most massive opposition research operation ever conducted in American politics. With this investigation having no bounds and no limits, this team can go anywhere to find any dirt whatsoever. In fact, for the presidential election in 2020, this is a godsend. A team of Obama-Hillary donors investigating every aspect of a sitting president that they detest.”

Earlier today, The Gateway Pundit reported Mueller is now investigating the Trump Organization.

Bloomberg reported:

FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development in New York with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008, the person said.

The investigation also has absorbed a money-laundering probe begun by federal prosecutors in New York into Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

John Dowd, one of Trump’s lawyers, said on Thursday that he was unaware of the inquiry into Trump’s businesses by the two-months-old investigation and considered it beyond the scope of what Special Counsel Robert Mueller should be examining.

“Those transactions are in my view well beyond the mandate of the Special counsel; are unrelated to the election of 2016 or any alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and most importantly, are well beyond any Statute of Limitation imposed by the United States Code,” he wrote in an email.

In a New York Times interview, President Trump warned Mueller would be crossing a ‘red line,’ if his family’s finances were included in the probe.

The New York Times reports:

In a remarkable public break with one of his earliest political supporters, Mr. Trump complained that Mr. Sessions’s decision ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel that should not have happened. “Sessions should have never recused himself and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” Mr. Trump said.
In a wide-ranging interview with The New York Times, the president also accused James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director he fired in May, of trying to leverage a dossier of compromising material to keep his job. Mr. Trump criticized both the acting F.B.I. director who has been filling in since Mr. Comey’s dismissal and the deputy attorney general who recommended it. And he took on Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel now leading the investigation into Russian meddling in last year’s election.
Mr. Trump said Mr. Mueller was running an office rife with conflicts of interest and warned that investigators would cross a red line if they delve into Trump family finances unrelated to Russia. Mr. Trump never said he would order the Justice Department to fire Mr. Mueller, nor would he outline circumstances under which he might do so. But he left open the possibility as he expressed deep grievance over an investigation that has taken a political toll in the six months since he took office.

From Hospital Bed — John McCain Hits President Trump on Twitter

2 hours 31 min ago

He’s a fighter.

John McCain hit President Trump on Twitter from his hospital bed on Thursday.

The Republican critic attacked President Trump for ending a failed program to train, fund and arm Syrians to fight Assad and ISIS.

The program has been a complete failure and cost Americans millions of dollars.

McCain tied Trump’s decision to Russia.

Disgusting.

Reports admin ending prgm to assist Syrian opposition irresponsible, short-sighted& plays into Russia, Assad’s hands https://t.co/N7KVqn1VD6

— John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) July 20, 2017

Here is a previous report from 2015 on the failed program McCain wants to keep funding—

As of July 2015, the US had only trained 60 Syrian fighters to take on ISIS.
The Obama administration was hoping to build a force to neutralize ISIS.

ISIS has 20,000 to 30,000 fighters.

But several of the US-trained rebels were captured when they entered Syria in July.

Al-Nusra Islamists released video earlier this month of the captured US trained rebels in Azaz, Syria.

The US-trained rebels weretaken hostage as they crossed into Syria from Turkey.

And then there was this…
The remaining US-trained fighters refused to fight, saying they were misled by the Obama administration.

BREAKING: FBI Hands Over 7,000 NEW Documents to State Dept From Weiner Laptop in Hillary Email Scandal

2 hours 52 min ago

The FBI has turned over 7,000 new documents from Anthony Weiner’s private laptop to the State Department as part of Judicial Watch’s lawsuit related to last year’s Hillary Clinton email case, Fox News reports.

Bravo Judicial Watch! This is a big win! The investigation into Hillary’s email scandal must be reinvigorated and properly handled.

Via Fox News:

Judicial Watch and State Department representatives appeared in federal court in Washington, D.C., on Thursday over the group’s Freedom of Information Act suit seeking Clinton emails from her tenure at the State Department.

It emerged during the hearing that the 7,000 new documents were turned over. The trove is expected to contain some emails sent by Weiner’s estranged wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

The State Department was ordered in November to turn over 500 pages of Clinton-related documents a month to Judicial Watch.

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton wasn’t impressed with the slow process of only handing over 500 pages per month. Fitton told Fox News, “This pushes this out until 2020 and beyond. Production is slow because the legal counsel is a holdover from the Obama administration—the folks that are responsible for slow-rolling this are still here.”

As TGP previously reported, conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch released new Huma Abedin emails last Friday showing additional instances of Clinton Foundation donors receiving special treatment from Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

The heavily redacted documents from Abedin’s non-government account include an email from Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, to Abedin revealing that he acted as a go between for a Clinton Foundation donor, Richard Park. And they reveal Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band instructing Abedin to “show love” to Clinton donor Andrew Liveris.

The documents included six Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 439 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department, and further contradicting a statement by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails had been turned over to the State Department.

One example of a Clinton Foundation donor receiving special treatment was in an email dated November 14, 2009. This particular donor has appeared in numerous prior emails asking for favors:

On November 14, 2009, Clinton donor Ben Ringel, who has appeared in numerous prior emails asking for favors, emailed Abedin to get help in getting an Iranian woman a visa to come to the United States. He writes: “We need to get her clearance even only temporary to be with her granddaughter.” Abedin forwarded the request to Lauren Jiloty, asking her “Can U help Monday with consular affairs?” Jiloty replies, “Sure. Will look into it.”  Ringel donated between $10,000 and $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation.  In May, Band, working through Abedin, attempts to help Canadian concert promoter and Foundation donor Michael Cohl with the processing of a visa. Abedin passes the request to Monica Hanley, Clinton’s “confidential assistant.”

The new document dump is surely a treasure trove proving more pay-to-play from Hillary’s State Department. The new documents will most likely show more instances of Huma Abedin and her pervert husband, Anthony Weiner having access to highly classified information as well.

As President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton previously said:

“I’m not sure how much more evidence of pay for play, classified information mishandling, and influence peddling from Clinton’s email server one would need to show a serious criminal investigation is required.”

Hah-Hah! Cryin’ Chuck Schumer Sinks to LOWEST Approval Rating EVER in New York

2 hours 57 min ago

From the moment Donald Trump took office, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has done everything in his power to prevent the President’s ‘America First’ agenda from becoming a reality.

A new poll released by Siena College shows Cryin’ Schumer’s ‘block at all cost’ strategy is hurting his standings among New Yorkers.

NTK Network reports:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has been obstructing President Trump and the Republican Party’s agenda at every turn, and this tactic doesn’t appear to be sitting well with his constituents who, in a recent poll, gave Schumer his worst ratings ever.

Siena College poll released on Thursday found that 37 percent of New Yorkers have an unfavorable opinion of Schumer, his highest unapproval rating ever. The poll also found that Schumer’s favorability among New Yorkers is at its lowest point ever.

This new poll suggests that Schumer’s constituents aren’t big fans of the Senate Democrats’ obstructionist strategy, which is evident in their refusal to work with Senate Republicans on fixing Obamacare.

The Washington Examiner recently reported on how Senate Democrats have also filibustered two-thirds of President Trump’s picks to fill administration posts.

Recently, Schumer fear-mongered his way through a Senate press conference, accusing President Trump of “actively trying to undermine the health care system in this country, using millions of Americans as political pawns in a cynical game.”

According to CNS, Schumer told the news conference:

Now, it’s getting clearer and clearer that Senate Republicans won’t be able to pass either their bill or a backup plan of repeal without replacement. We Democrats believe that the time has finally come for our Republican colleagues to take us up on our offer of working together to improve the health care system rather than sabotage it.

Evidently President Trump is proposing a different path. He wants to throw up his hands rather than roll up his sleeves to work with us and solve the problem. But let’s be very clear about what the president is proposing and where his path would lead. The President would not, be quote, “‘letting Obamacare collapse.’ He is actively, actively trying to undermine the health care system in this country, using millions of americans as political pawns in a cynical game.

By continuing to deny the insurance markets their certainty that they need to function, the President is playing a dangerous game with the health care of this country. So our Republican colleagues here in the Senate have a choice to make.

They can follow the President down a path that will lead to higher premiums, less care, and millions of Americans losing coverage. They can join President Trump in trying to sabotage the system and hurt millions of innocent Americans to try and make a political point that has failed already.

Or they can start today working with Democrats. We can work together to lower premiums. We can work together to stabilize the markets. We can work together to improve the quality of health care.

AMAZING! President Trump Exerts 1,000 Pounds of Pressure on Device in White House Product demonstration.

Corning Glass CEO Wendell Weeks joined business leaders in the Trump White House this afternoon to promote a new glass for the pharmaceutical industry.

During the discussion Wendell Weeks had President Trump help him test the specialty glass. Weeks had President Trump press the lever on the old glass and then on the new Corning’s Valor Glass.

The president exerted 454 kilograms of force on the glass and it did not break. Weeks then told the crowd that a prize fighter exerts about the same amount of force in his punch.

Wendell Weeks: “My associate wanted me to inform you a thousand pounds is about the same as a punch from a professional boxer.”

Not bad for a 71 year-old man!

#FakeNews Leader and Liberal Hack Katie Couric Says ‘Fake News’ Is Tearing the Country Apart at the Seams

3 hours 31 min ago

Liberal hack Katie Couric complained this week that “fake news” was tearing the country apart at the seams.

The #FakeNews media is having a very difficult time dealing with real reporting from the internet, conservative talk radio and FOX News.

Liberals want so desperately to crack down on opposing voices.
It makes them sick to their stomach that there are real news outlets to counter their BS out there today.

Couric invited Jeb Bush and Samantha Bee to discuss the current culture and trash President Trump with her this upcoming weekend.

The New York Daily News reported:

Katie Couric has (almost) seen it all.

Still, little has prepared the world-famous journalist for the phenomenon she says is currently “tearing [America] apart at the seams”: fake news.

“I remember I got sent a lot of stories from friends who were quite educated and were like, ‘Did you see this?’” Couric tells the Daily News. “And I would say, ‘Come on, you’re kidding, right? This is BS.’”

Couric is preparing to co-host OZY Fest, a one-day music and politics event happening in Central Park Saturday, alongside OZY founder Carlos Watson. The event will feature newsmakers like Samantha Bee, Jeb Bush, Malcolm Gladwell and more discussing topics ranging from entrepreneurial disruption to reimagining America’s two major political parties for the future.

BOMBSHELL: Trump Accuses Leaker Comey of Trying to Hold Scandalous Dossier Over His Head

4 hours 37 min ago

President Trump held an interview this week with The New York Times.

The embattled president accused former FBI Director Comey of threatening to hold the discredited Russian dossier over his head.

The dossier of bizarre allegations was created by a far left group to damage President Trump during the election.

LawNewz reported:

He claims that FBI Director James Comey tried to hold the salacious dossier over his head, in order to gain “leverage” over him. It had previously been reported that when administration officials briefed the president at Trump Tower in January, Comey pulled him aside and told him about the details of the now infamous dossier which included unverified reports of Trump’s sexual encounters while in Russia.

Why did Comey bring this up? Trump has a new theory.

From The New York Times report:

In the interview, Mr. Trump said he believes Mr. Comey told him about the dossier to implicitly make clear he had something to hold over the president. “In my opinion, he shared it so that I would think he had it out there,” Mr. Trump said. As leverage? “Yeah, I think so,’’ Mr. Trump said. “In retrospect.”

The president dismissed the assertions in the dossier: “When he brought it to me, I said this is really, made-up junk. I didn’t think about any of it. I just thought about man, this is such a phony deal.”

REVEALED: Obama Had ‘Secret Plan’ to Deploy the Military On Election Day

4 hours 49 min ago
The Obama administration had a secret plan in place to deploy troops to voting stations across the country on election day, according to documents obtained exclusively by TIME Magazine.

The New York Post reports:

The Obama administration ​was poised to send armed federal agents to polling places, deploy the military and launch full-scale counter-propaganda measures in case hackers disrupted the vote on Election Day, according to a report.

​The 15-page playbook, produced in October, outlined the “enhanced measures” the government was prepared to take in the event of a “significant incident,” Time magazine reported Thursday, citing a copy of the document.

“​I​n almost all potential cases of malicious cyber activity impacting election infrastructure, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, to include their law enforcement agencies, will have primary jurisdiction to respond​,” it says. ​

​The playbook coordinated the responsibilities of the different government agencies — Department of Homeland Security, Justice Department and FBI — and dictated how they would “activate enhanced procedures and allocate the resources described in their enhanced coordination procedures to coordinate incident response activities.”

In June, President Trump slammed his predecessor’s inaction in relation to the supposed ‘Russian hacking’ intrusion.

Fox News reported:

President Trump criticized his predecessor for allegedly doing “nothing” about reports that Russia interfered in last year’s presidential campaign, in a recent interview.

“I just heard today for the first time that (former President) Obama knew about Russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it,” Trump said in the interview set to air Sunday on “Fox & Friends Weekend.” “The CIA gave him information on Russia a long time before the election. … If he had the information, why didn’t he do something about it?”

Trump suggested the media has underreported the story, while has rigorously pursued allegations that his team colluded with Russia during the 2016 race, in which he upset Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

More recently, President Trump slammed Obama for ‘choking’ over so-called election meddling.

A mob of peaceful Syrian refugees beat the hell out of a gay man in Södertälje, Sweden recently.

The Muslims did not much appreciate the gay man’s sexuality.

Breitbart.com reported:

Syrian origin 31-year-old Gabriel Chabo claims that he was severely beaten by a group of Syrian migrants in the Swedish town of Södertälje after the men claimed that he was homosexual.

Mr Chabo was walking around the town on Friday afternoon with his brother when he was approached by several men he was unfamiliar with.

AG Jeff Sessions Says He Loves His Job and Won’t Step Down …Yet (VIDEO)

6 hours 53 min ago

On March 2nd Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the crackpot “Russian” conspiracy investigations.
He thought it would be a nice gesture to Democrats.
It wasn’t. It was foolish.

President Trump was furious with the Attorney General’s decision.

Trump left WH in a fury on Friday, fuming about Sessions's recusal and telling aides that Sessions shouldn't have recused himself…

— Robert Costa (@costareports) March 4, 2017

Trump was reportedly blindsided by the decision and furious with Sessions at the time.

In May Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein named former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel. This NEVER would have happened under Jeff Sessions.

On June 6 Deep State activists reported that Trump was still upset with the Attorney General for his unintelligible decision.

On June 8 former FBI Director and leaker James Comey admitted he played the DOJ into launching a Special Counsel investigation of the Trump-Russia connections.

On Wednesday President Trump told The New York Times he never would have selected Sessions for Attorney General if he knew he would recuse himself from the Russian witch hunt.

President Trump said on Wednesday that he never would have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Mr. Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation that has dogged his presidency, calling the decision “very unfair to the president.”

MUST READ=> Evan Sayet: Trump Is Not the Typical Conservative – He Fights and He Wins

7 hours 46 min ago

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Evan Sayet, author of the outstanding book The KinderGarden of Eden: How The Modern Liberal Thinks posted an article at Townhall that is making the rounds on the Internet.

His lecture to the Heritage Foundation on the topic of his book remains, some ten years later, by far the single most viewed lecture in the history of the Heritage Foundation.

Just brilliant https://t.co/5avG64VuTF

— Joe Hoft (@joehoft) July 20, 2017

Sayet’s post today is a marvelous explanation for why he supports President Trump. At the end of President Trump’s first six months today, it is well worth the read.

Sayet explains to his friends what President Trump is doing that is so important and critical at this stage in US History. Here are some quotes from the article:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.  We tried statesmanship.  Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?  We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.

I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.  Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

and this:

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war.  While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end.  Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

and this:

Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.  Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.   Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man.  He fights.”

and this:

…instead of going after “the fake media” – and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri – Trump isolated CNN.  He made it personal.

and he ends his post with this:

So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times.  I don’t care.  I can’t spare this man.  He fights.

We couldn’t agree more.

Trump is a fighter and a winner and he has turned the mainstream media upside down.  What sort of credibility will the MSM have when President Trump is done with them?  Trump fights!

MUELLER CROSSES RED LINE: Special Counsel Investigating POTUS Business Dealings

7 hours 50 min ago

Special counsel Robert Mueller just crossed President Trump’s red line, expanding his investigation to include transactions by the Trump Organization.

As the President warned in a New York Times interview yesterday, Mueller might be making a fatal mistake in probing the Trump family’s finances.

Bloomberg reports:

The U.S. special counsel investigating possible ties between the Donald Trumpcampaign and Russia in last year’s election is examining a broad range of transactions involving Trump’s businesses as well as those of his associates, according to a person familiar with the probe.

The president told the New York Times on Wednesday that any digging into matters beyond Russia would be out of bounds. Trump’s businesses have involved Russians for years, making the boundaries fuzzy so Special Counsel Robert Mueller appears to be taking a wide-angle approach to his two-month-old probe.

FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008, the person said.

Agents are also interested in dealings with the Bank of Cyprus, where Wilbur Ross served as vice chairman before he became commerce secretary, as well as the efforts of Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law and White House aide, to secure financing for some of his family’s real estate properties. The information was provided by someone familiar with the developing inquiry but not authorized to speak publicly.

Yesterday, The Gateway Pundit found what was perhaps the most interesting part of President Trump’s interview with The New York Times. The President warned Mueller he would be crossing a ‘red line’ if he expanded the Russia probe into his family’s finances.

The New York Times reports:

In a remarkable public break with one of his earliest political supporters, Mr. Trump complained that Mr. Sessions’s decision ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel that should not have happened. “Sessions should have never recused himself and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” Mr. Trump said.

In a wide-ranging interview with The New York Times, the president also accused James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director he fired in May, of trying to leverage a dossier of compromising material to keep his job. Mr. Trump criticized both the acting F.B.I. director who has been filling in since Mr. Comey’s dismissal and the deputy attorney general who recommended it. And he took on Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel now leading the investigation into Russian meddling in last year’s election.

Mr. Trump said Mr. Mueller was running an office rife with conflicts of interest and warned that investigators would cross a red line if they delve into Trump family finances unrelated to Russia. Mr. Trump never said he would order the Justice Department to fire Mr. Mueller, nor would he outline circumstances under which he might do so. But he left open the possibility as he expressed deep grievance over an investigation that has taken a political toll in the six months since he took office.

WOW! Saudi Prince Arrested After ‘BLOODY TORTURE’ Video Sparks Outrage

8 hours 14 min ago

Dramatic footage of a Saudi Prince waging a bloody assault on ordinary Saudi citizens has sparked outrage across the Muslim World. Following orders from Saudi King Salman, Prince Saud al-Saud was arrested.

The Prince can be seen pointing an AK47 at one of the victims!

Middle East Eye reports:

A Saudi prince was arrested on Thursday on King Salman’s order, according to a state broadcaster, as outrage grew on social media over videos appearing to show him abusing members of the public.

Salman issued the warrant for “the immediate arrest… and imprisonment” of Prince Saud bin Abdulaziz bin Musaed bin Saud bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, a descendant of Saudi Arabia’s founder, along with a group of men who appeared in the videos uploaded to YouTube, al-Ikhbariya television reported.

He also called for the arrest of the Prince’s accomplices who are seen beating individuals in the videos.

The arrest came after the prince, whose face can clearly be seen in some of the videos shared via Twitter Wednesday, unleashed a wave of verbal and physical abuse on Saudis and foreigners. A video circulating on social media showed police escorting the young prince – one of the thousands of members of the royal family – out of a house in handcuffs.

“You park by my house, you … eunuch, I’ll screw your mother in her grave,” he says to a dazed driver bleeding from the mouth, his clothes splattered with blood.

“Do you understand?” he asks the man, who nods and turns away.

In another video, a man moaning and clutching his head is led out of a house with an automatic rifle pointed at his back.

Below is a video of the entire ordeal.

Within the past week, reports reveal there was a ‘coup’ to oust the Saudi Crown Prince.

The Independent UK reports:

The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia was reportedly forced from power by his younger cousin over claims he was addicted to painkillers.

Mohammed bin Nayef was summoned to meet King Salman bin Abdulaziz at the royal palace in Mecca last month.

His phone was reportedly seized and he was ordered to step aside in favour of Mohammed bin Salman, the King’s son, over claims an addiction to painkillers was clouding his judgement.

“The king came to meet Mohammed bin Nayef and they were alone in the room. He told him: ‘I want you to step down, you didn’t listen to the advice to get treatment for your addiction which dangerously affects your decisions’,” a source close to the royal told the Reuters news agency.

A letter read out over the phone to the House of Saud’s Allegiance Council after his dismissal reportedly said: “Because of this dangerous situation we see that he should be relieved of his position and that Mohammed bin Salman be appointed in his place.”

TOO FAR? ‘Funny or Die’ Creates Disgusting Misogynistic Hit Piece on Kellyanne Conway

8 hours 24 min ago

Funny or Die is a far left “comedy” video website that regularly takes swipes at conservatives and Republican figures.

Today Funny or Die launched a particularly vicious hit piece on Kellyanne Conway, the first woman to break the glass ceiling and successfully run a presidential campaign.

If Kellyanne was a Democrat she would be celebrated on every cable channel and featured on the cover of every prominent US magazine. But she’s a brilliant Republican – so she gets attacked constantly and mercilessly.

The Funny or Die people dedicated an entire website on their new project “The Kellyanne Conway Story.”

The first video was released this week shows the “First Look” at their hit piece on Conway.

The segment is filled with misogynistic and hateful attacks on Kellyanne Conway and President Trump. The video mocks Melania Trump’s accent and Mike Pence’s Christian faith- because poking fun of Christians is ‘funny.’

But it’s OK because they are all Republicans.

They even include a make out scene with the Trump and Kellyanne characters in the video.

The ‘producers’ statement’ includes attacks on blond white women… Because trashing white women is funny:

PRODUCERS’ STATEMENT

Kellyanne Conway is the single most fascinating woman in American history. Beautiful, blonde, articulate — it’s no wonder Donald Trump chose her to helm his incredibly successful presidential campaign. Our production company is committed to making the voices of blonde, white women heard. It’s incredibly difficult to tell the story of a woman that is as entertaining as a story about a man, but we are tremendously proud of the work we did with The Kellyanne Conway Story.

It will be interesting to see if the snowflakes and feminists come out and denounce this anti-woman, racist hit piece.

Speaker Paul Ryan Won’t Even Start Writing Tax Reform Bill Until the Fall

9 hours 22 min ago

This is outrageous!

Speaker Paul Ryan told Fox News in February that tax reform, one of President Trump’s big campaign promises and a goal for his first 100 days in office, will be part of the spring budgetary process.

Ryan also said a repeal of Obamacare must happen first.
This was in February.
Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com

On Tuesday Speaker Ryan told WBEL AM Radio that his Congress will NOT EVEN WRITE the tax reform bill until the fall.

The chances of this getting passed this year is nil to none.
Why was this not prepared before the 2017 Inauguration?

Paul Ryan sure must hate Donald Trump.

JESSE WATTERS: GOP Can’t Drain The Swamp When Their Own Members Are Plugging The Hole (VIDEO)

9 hours 43 min ago

Guest post by Michael LaChance at American Lookout

On Monday night on The Five, Jesse Watters made an excellent point about Republicans and their failure to repeal Obamacare. The GOP can’t seem to get out of its own way. The GOP can’t drain the swamp when their own members are standing in the way.

From the FOX News Insider:

Watters: GOP ‘Can’t Drain the Swamp When Members Are Plugging the Hole’

Jesse Watters sounded off on the Senate GOP’s failed ObamaCare replacement plan.

On “The Five,” Watters said that the party can’t “drain the swamp” as promised while “members of your own party are plugging the hole.”

He said three Republican senators single-handedly torpedoed the legislation.

Watters said the trio are “independent-minded senators from poor states who got hooked on the Medicaid money” that ObamaCare provides.

He added that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is not a “closer” when it comes to deal-making.

Watters said Republicans also had no plan with which to hit the ground running upon President Trump’s inauguration.

Jesse nailed it on this.
The members of the GOP who are obstructing the agenda need to go. We have enough problems with the Democrats as it is.

HERE IT IS=> Complete List of President Trump’s Major Accomplishments in His First Six Months #MAGA

10 hours 17 min ago

Guest post by Joe Hoft

President Trump has accomplished much in his first six months in office.  Today at the end of this period, we provide a list of these many accomplishments.

Stock Market

In President Trump’s first six months since the election and since his inauguration the US Stock Markets are at record highs and millions of Americans are benefitting in their retirement savings accounts.

* The DOW daily closing stock market average has risen 18% since the election on November 8th. (On November 9th the DOW closed at 18,332 – yesterday on July 19th the DOW closed at 21,641 for another all time stock market closing high).
* Since the election the DOW has set a new all time closing high one out of every four days the market is open!
* Since the Inauguration on January 20th the DOW is up 9%. (It was at 19,827 at January 20th.)
* The DOW took just 66 days to climb from 19,000 to above 21,000, the fastest 2,000 point run ever. The DOW closed above 19,000 for the first time on November 22nd and closed above 21,000 on March 1st.
* The DOW closed above 20,000 on January 25th and the March 1st rally matched the fastest-ever 1,000 point increase in the DOW at 24 days.
* On February 28th President Trump matched President Reagan’s 1987 record for most continuous closing high trading days when the DOW reached a new high for its 12th day in a row!
* The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ have both set new all-time highs during this period.
* The US Stock Market gained $4 trillion in wealth since Trump was elected!
* The S&P 500 also broke $20 Trillion for the first time in its history.

US Debt

As of today, the US Debt has decreased under President Trump since his inauguration by (-$103) Billion. (President Obama increased the US debt in his first 6 months more than $974 Billion or nearly $1 Trillion.)  The difference between Presidents Trump and Obama is more than $1 Trillion.

Jobs

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump added a projected 1,027,000 jobs in his first six months (January through June 2017.) President Obama on the other hand lost more than 3,826,000 million jobs in his first six months.

Unemployment

Also according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics the unemployment rate since President Trump’s inauguration decreased from 4.8% to 4.4% (January through June 2017). The unemployment rate in January 2017 was 4.8% and by June it was down to 4.4%. Unemployment under President Obama on the other hand moved in the opposite direction. In his first six months as President the US unemployment rate increased each month from 7.8% in January 2009 to 9.5% by June of 2009.

Inflation

As noted earlier this week, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics the US inflation rate decreased to an eight month low in June to 1.6%. This is in part due to President Trump’s energy policies that are helping average Americans with cheaper gas and electricity.

Housing Sales

Housing sales are red-hot in the US right now. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market an average 84 days. This year, it’s just 45 days.

According to the US Census Bureau, there were nearly twice as many US housing sales in the past couple of months as there were under President Obama in 2009 during the same time period. (The annualized housing sales rate for May 2017 is reported at 610,000 where in 2009 this amount was only 376,000.)

Decrease in Regulations

One of the first things that President Trump did in office was to reduce the number or burdensome regulations put in place during the Obama era. In January President Trump signed his 2 for 1 executive order mandating that for every new regulation, two regulations needed to be revoked. Even far left Politico notes that significant new federal regulations since Trump’s inauguration have slowed to an almost total halt.

Regulations cost Americans and American companies money to implement and maintain. Reducing or halting regulations allows companies to spend their money on more prudent money making areas.

Other Results

The US Manufacturing Index soared to a 33 year high in President Trump’s first six months which was the best number since 1983 under President Reagan.

The Federal Reserve has increased interest rates three times since President Trump was elected into office in November. The Fed increased intereste rates only once in Obama’s 8 Years prior to the increase after President Trumps winning the election in November.

Illegal immigration is down almost 70% under President Trump.

NATO announced Allied spending is up $10 Billion because of President Trump.

After being nominated by President Trump, Constitutionalist Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed and sworn in as  Supreme Court Justice in early April.

The President has signed around 150 executive orders, memoranda and proclamations as of July 19th, including:

* Dismantling Obama’s climate change initiatives.
* Travel bans for individuals from a select number of countries embroiled in terrorist atrocities.
* Enforcing regulatory reform.
* Protecting Law enforcement.
* Mandating for every new regulation to eliminate two.
* Defeating ISIS.
* Rebuilding the military.
* Building a border wall.
* Cutting funding for sanctuary cities.
* Approving pipelines.
* Reducing regulations on manufacturers.
* Placing a hiring freeze on federal employees.
* Exiting the US from the TPP.

President Trump and his beautiful family visited leaders around the world.  In his first foreign trip as President he went to Saudi Arabia and gave one of the most historic speeches in US history.  The President implored the Muslim leaders of 50 countries to get rid of terrorists in their countries and  “drive them out“.  No world leader had ever done this!

As a result, the President sided with the leaders of these countries including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan against terrorism, ISIS and Iran.

In addition to all this, the President has met with many foreign leaders from across the globe on numerous trips and he invited others to his place in Florida, Mar-a-Lago, including Xi from China, Abe from Japan, etc.

The President also pointed out numerous times that the MSM (Main Stream Media) reports only on a made up Russia conspiracy story and ignores these accomplishments. These actions are making the majority of Americans aware of the tremendous bias and falsehoods emanating from the media in the US and abroad. This too is another major Trump accomplishment.

And let’s not forget that the President unloaded on CNN with arguably the greatest tweet by any man ever in early July –

#FraudNewsCNN #FNN pic.twitter.com/WYUnHjjUjg

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 2, 2017

In Summary

President Trump is doing all he can for the American people and as a result the economy is on fire with the stock market reaching new all time highs once every four days!  In nearly every economic category the US economy is improving under President Trump. In addition, President Trump has implemented numerous executive actions that he promised he would do when running for office.  The US is in much better shape in only six months.  Americans have hope again due to the real changes this President instituted from the economy to immigration. 

There is still much to do but President Trump is showing that he is doing all he can to Make America Great Again!

Maxine Waters 2020? Crazy Congresswoman Sparks Speculation Frenzy With Event In New Hampshire

10 hours 18 min ago
Could President Trump’s most vocal critic be gearing up for a run in 2020? New Hampshire’s WMUR reveals none other than Congresswoman Maxine Waters is slated to headline an event in the Granite State. The move is sure to set off nationwide speculation. 

WMUR reports:

California congresswoman Maxine Waters will be in New Hampshire later this month to headline a picnic fundraiser for the Strafford County Democratic Committee.

According to an invitation, obtained by WMUR from Democratic sources, Waters will be in the state on July 23 for the picnic to be held at the Miller Farm in New Durham.

Waters, a co-founder of the Black Women’s Forum, was elected in November 2016 to her 14th term in the U.S. House, representing a large part of south central Los Angeles.

Waters’ latest move might stoke speculation about 2020, but as The Gateway Pundit reported, the California Democrat’s individual contributions are drying up and her coffers are near empty thanks to hundreds of thousands owed to her daughter.

Washington Free Beacon reported:

Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.), who has been considered a leader of the movement within Congress to “resist” Donald Trump, has received a little more than $20,000 in individual contributions to her campaign so far this year despite her elevated profile.

Waters is also $100,000 in debt to her daughter, who runs a lucrative endorsement mailer operation for the campaign, filings show.

Citizens for Waters, Rep. Waters’ campaign committee, reported receiving just $12,600 individual contributions throughout the second quarter, which runs between April 1 and June 30. During the first quarter, which spans from Jan. 1 to March 31, the campaign reported $9,508.79 in individual contributions. Waters has now pulled in just $22,108.79 in total individual contributions.

The campaign has compensated for the low amount of individual contributions by pulling in six figures from political action committees. The campaign reported $2,500 from PACs during the first quarter and $99,500 during the second quarter.

Crooked Cop CAUGHT PLANTING DRUGS – Forgot His Body Cam Was On

10 hours 37 min ago

In Baltimore, of course, wholesomeness capital of the US. Officer Richard Pinheiro thought his body camera was off when he had tossed the baggie into a debris pile. But what he didn’t know is that the cameras have a pre-record cycle that continuously records and saves the data with a retroactive 30 second timer. There’s no audio during the first 30 seconds of the pre-record, but you can clearly see Officer Pinheiro toss the baggie into the pile, walk to the sidewalk to turn on his body camera, then stumble into the debris pile, poke around, then miraculously find a baggie of heroin which he was pinning on a suspect.

The two complicit officers are Hovhannes Simonyan and Jamal Brunson. They observe this action and do nothing, say nothing.

Police Commissioner Kevin Davis says “It’s certainly a possibility that we’re looking into, to see if the officers in fact replaced drugs that they had already discovered in order to document their discovery with their body-worn cameras on,” he said.

The Baltimore Sun reports:

The public defender’s office flagged the video for prosecutors last week, prompting prosecutors to drop the heroin possession charge against the man arrested.

The man, unable to post $50,000 bail, had been in jail since January, according to attorney Deborah Levi, who is leading a new effort to track police misconduct cases for the public defender’s office.

Lt. Gene Ryan, president of the local police union that represents rank-and-file officers, urged people not to “jump to conclusions.”

“Everyone needs to take a deep breath, take a step back, and let the investigation run its course,” he said. “First impression, it doesn’t look good. But that’s not the complete investigation. There’s going to be a lot more done to get to the bottom of what really happened.”

The public defender’s office said the state’s attorney’s office needs to do more in response to the discovery of the video. It said in a statement that the officer seen handling the plastic bag in the video is a witness in 53 other active cases. The other two officers in the video also are listed as witnesses in pending cases, the office said.

David Rocah, senior staff attorney with the ACLU of Maryland, said that even “a faked recreation of officers finding the untied bag of drugs” would still be “potentially criminal” and should be a violation of police rules.

Rocah criticized the state’s attorney’s office for “the total lack of any apparent systemic response” to the incident, including putting the officer on the stand in another case after the video was flagged.

Rocah said it was “insane” that state laws that bar the disclosure of disciplinary records for police officers would prevent the public from seeing the results of the Police Department’s investigation or knowing how it punished the officers internally.

Rocah also said “there is zero reason to trust any video or any statement from any of these officers” given what was clearly observable in the video flagged by the public defender’s office.

“So even if it is indeed true that they simply staged a re-creation of finding the drugs, these officers have not only destroyed their own credibility, they have single-handedly destroyed the credibility of every piece of video where BPD officers find contraband without a clear lead-in that negates the possibility of it being staged,” Rocah said. “That’s quite a day’s work.”

Six months of a man’s life, taken away thanks to this shady behavior.

The Baltimore Sun also reports that city records indicate Officer Pinheiro made $67,570 of taxpayer money in 2016.
