NEW: Senator Rand Paul Vows to Block National Emergency Declaration – Forcing Trump Veto

GatewayPundit - Sun, 03/03/2019 - 18:27

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said on Saturday that he will vote to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration which means the President will be forced to use his veto power.

This will be President Trump’s first veto.

Via Bowling Green Daily News:

“I can’t vote to give the president the power to spend money that hasn’t been appropriated by Congress. We may want more money for border security, but Congress didn’t authorize it. If we take away those checks and balances, it’s a dangerous thing.”

Rand Paul’s vote to block Trump’s national emergency will push the vote over the threshold needed for President Trump to use his veto power.

Recall, RINO Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski said last week that she will vote with Democrats to support a resolution to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration to secure border wall funding.

Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Thom Tillis (NC) will also vote with the Democrats to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration.

47 Democrat Senators, including two Independent Senators who caucus with Dems, plus 4 Republican Senators voting to block the national emergency declaration would mean the President will have to use his veto power.

POLL: Do You Support The President’s NATIONAL EMERGENCY To Build The Wall?

The resolution passed the Democrat-controlled House Tuesday afternoon.

President Trump recently declared a national emergency citing cartel violence, human trafficking and drug trafficking to access funds to build the border wall.

House Democrats immediately got to work to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration.

The Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee announced it launched an investigation into President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency at the southern border.

President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency is completely lawful. If Congress has a problem with the President declaring national emergencies, they should change the existing laws.

Sixteen states led by California also sued the Trump administration last Monday over his decision to declare a national emergency to secure funding for the border wall.

“I can’t vote to give extra-Constitutional powers to the president.” Rand Paul told the crowd.

This will be President Trump’s first veto — in contrast, Obama used his veto power 10 months into his first term.

Ben Stiller Takes Digs at Michael Cohen on ‘Saturday Night Live’

LifeZette - Sun, 03/03/2019 - 16:42

“Meet the Parents” and “Zoolander” star Ben Stiller popped up on this week’s “Saturday Night Live” to portray Michael Cohen, the disgraced former lawyer who testified this week before Congress.

During his appearance, Cohen made many claims against President Donald Trump. He alleged the president is a racist and said Trump personally had him pay off Stormy Daniels, a porn star who claimed she and the president had an affair. Trump denies this.

What was ironic about Cohen’s testimony before Congress and the nation is that he will soon be heading to prison for his previous lies to Congress.

Luckily, that irony did not go over the usually aggressively liberal heads of the “SNL” writers.

“Thank you for inviting me here today to correct the record under oath,” Stiller’s Cohen said in the cold open of the show, which was a mockup of the hearing this week.

“Of course, the first time I testified was also under oath. But this time, I, like, really mean it.”

Others present for Cohen’s testimony were also portrayed in the “SNL” cold open. Cast member Kenan Thompson played Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), while former cast member Bill Hader returned to the show to play Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).

“For any other president, this hearing would be the most damning and humiliating moment of their lives,” said Thompson’s Cummings as he began the scene. “But for Trump, it’s just Wednesday.”

“For any other president, this hearing would be the most damning and humiliating moment of their lives.”

In another dig at Cohen, Stiller’s version of the personal lawyer at one point quoted the song “Torn” by Natalie Imbruglia, a song about heartache.

“But now, I’m all out of faith,” Cohen’s Stiller said in his closing statement. “This is how I feel. I’m cold and I’m ashamed, lying naked on the floor. Illusion never changed into something real. I’m wide awake and I can see the perfect sky is torn, thank you.”

Ben Stiller has appeared as Cohen before on “SNL” in multiple episodes.

The appearances have become rare acting parts from the “Night at the Museum” star, as he’s recently turned his attention more to directing and producing.

The last film he starred in was released in 2017.

His last directing effort, the Showtime miniseries “Escape at Dannemora,” aired last year.

BOOM! Former ICE Director EXPLODES! — Blasts Ocasio-Cortez for RANK LIES and IGNORANCE on ICE — “I’m Sick of This” (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sun, 03/03/2019 - 15:33

Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez felt a bit feisty on Saturday.

The Socialist Democrat accused ICE of injecting children with unknown substances and raping women.

If you’re mad that I think people SHOULD KNOW when Dems vote to expand ICE powers, then be mad.

ICE is a dangerous agency with 0 accountability, widespread reporting of rape, abuse of power, + children dying in DHS custody.

Having a D next to your name doesn’t make that right.

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) March 2, 2019

And AOC blamed ICE for children dying in custody after the kids were dragged through a blistering desert by the parents before the entered the US.

Again, didn’t threaten a primary.

I was upset that 26 Dems forced the other 200+ to vote for a pro-ICE provision at the last min without warning.

Because I think an agency that pins children down + forcibly injects them w/ antipsychotic drugs shouldn’t be given more power. https://t.co/1e3cWXzOT6

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) March 2, 2019

On Sunday morning former ICE Director Tom Homan went on FOX and Friends to discuss AOC’s accusations.
Tom Homan WAS OUTRAGED! And he ripped apart EVERY SINGLE BOGUS ACCUSATION by the Democrat Socialist.

Tom Homan: She says we’re dangerous? What’s dangerous is a congresswoman who doesn’t know fact from fiction! You have a congresswoman who doesn’t know how to tell the truth. I forgot more on this subject than she will ever know in her two whole months of being a congresswoman.

She said three things. She said ICE was holding children down and injecting them with anti-psychotic drugs. Are you kidding me? That allegation was made against HHS. A different agency in a different department and she failed to mention those accusations were unsubstantiated. That was not ICE.

As far as raping women, sexually abusing women? ICE rescued 310 women from traffickers last year… We save women, we don’t rape them… I’m sick and tired of ICE agents being accused of stuff.

As far as she said children dying in ICE custody. A child has NEVER DIED in ICE custody EVER! Give me one name of a child that died in ICE custody! Two children died in custody of the Border Patrol and it wasn’t their fault. They did everything they could… So this lady, this congresswoman needs to get her facts straight!.. I’m sick of this!”

This was an AMAZING factcheck of one of the Democrats’ most vocal and ignorant members!

Jennifer Lawrence Claims There’s a ‘Total Political System Failure in America’

LifeZette - Sun, 03/03/2019 - 15:16

Actress Jennifer Lawrence has a plan on how to save the United States from the awful political climate we see before us.

Lawrence has joined a group called RepresentUs, which has created a number of goals to start fixing the system many Americans feel is broke.

The goals include creating laws to end political bribery, which usually ends up destroying political elections; ending gerrymandering advocacy; and implementing ranked choice voting, automatic voter registration and the ability to vote from home.

Related: Jennifer Lawrence Isn’t Backing Down from Her Political Agenda

Some Americans feel voting from home is dangerous — but I’ll let her continue.

If you are anything like me, you may find yourself constantly overwhelmed by everything that is wrong with politics. And when I say politics, I’m not talking about Democrats or Republicans. I’m talking about the flaws that exist in our political system regardless of which party is in power.

It’s a corrupt system in which we the people have near zero influence over our own government.

And that is sad. That is not the country I feel like I grew up in.

America was founded on the promise of self-governance, but instead we have statistically non-significant impact on public policy.

We can fix our corrupt political system, save America, and get to work on fixing everything else that’s broken in our country.

RepresentUs claims to be non-partisan.

But matching up with Lawrence, who has been a beacon of liberalism for a while now,. means that remains to be seen.

Unless Lawrence has repented of her former ways, I don’t know if anyone is going to give this new venture a chance.

Here’s a video if you want to see more of what RepresentUs is all about:

Lawrence is a board member of this group, RepresentUs — which also employs a co-founder of Buzzfeed, John Johnson.

That alone should give people pause.

Sweetie, he’s just quoting YOUR ‘deal’! Ted Cruz laughing about Democrats and farting cows triggers AOC and LOL

Twitchy - Sun, 03/03/2019 - 14:56

Vox’s Aaron Rupar has made a habit of deliberately misquoting Conservatives at CPAC to fuel his silly little narrative. For example, if he really thought Sen. Ted Cruz was serious about Democrats killing the cows his sense of humor may well be missing.

Well, he works for Vox so that really goes without saying.

Watch.

He’s laughing.

The audience is laughing.

Granted, the Green New Deal is some funny sh*t but we’re pretty sure Cruz wasn’t being entirely serious here. The PETA part of his statement is what makes it funny …

But that didn’t stop ol’ AOC from getting her britches all bunched up.

When you’re trying to justify to yourself + others that we should ignore one of the greatest threats to humanity and imperil all children by denying, deflecting, and delaying action on climate change, you say ridiculous nonsense like this. https://t.co/Q03R5lj1kB

Far left Rolling Stone magazine ran a spread this week on the far left socialists and anti-Semites running today’s Democrat Party.

The magazine highlighted anti-Jew lawmaker Ilhan Omar and radical communist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Cortez has been in the news lately for promoting the end of air travel and hamburgers.

In the video promo for the article Speaker Nancy Pelosi told President Trump, “Mr. President, do the country a favor. Don’t run.”

President Trump’s policies of mass success threaten Democrats.

Ted Malloch: The European Spring 2019 Is Coming

GatewayPundit - Sun, 03/03/2019 - 13:51

Guest post by Ted Malloch author of Davos, Aspen and Yale

Keep your eyes glued on Europe this spring.

Something is about to happen that will change the trajectory of modern history.

Hint.

The globalist European Union will be brought to its knees.

The surge of populist parties — on the right and the left — are poised to become the dominant players in European politics.

This will transfigure the European Parliament and slam the breaks on the globalist European Project.

Movement toward a federal uni-state, anchored in supranationalism will die in its tracks.

This means the redefinition of Europe, as we know it.

It means the survival and exaltation of sovereign nation states, again.

It means the end to senseless immigration.

It means no EU army, superseding NATO.

It means an alignment with Trump’s America.

Everything will change.

Juncker will be out as EU president.

Tusk will be gone as EU Council president.

Barnier will be removed as chief EU negotiator.

Tanjani will lose as president of the EU Parliament.

Center-right populist friendly characters that put an end to the globalist agenda and its aspirations, will replace them all.

Watch this informed analysis and you can follow the play by play and understand better the shape of European politics to come.

It is literally just a few short months away.

This is a democratic process.

Europeans themselves are voting to end the regime of globalism and return to a better, more localized, less centralized, freedom loving, and sovereign centered future.

Winning! Trump’s Visit To Vietnam Brings $15 Billion Dollar Boeing Contract And Thousands Of Jobs To U.S.

GatewayPundit - Sun, 03/03/2019 - 13:38

Guest post by Mike LaChance at American Lookout

Trump walked away from North Korea since they weren’t ready to make the deal he wanted. But his trip wasn’t completely fruitless. He is coming home with a massive boom for the American economy from Vietnam.

Namely, a $15 billion dollar contract for Boeing which will result in thousands of new jobs.

The media will ignore this as usual:

The MSM will never tell you this, but Trump got a $15 billion contract and thousands of jobs for US workers while he was in Vietnam.

He’s truly a President of the people!#fixit https://t.co/G6VnUYI3V7

— Andrew Pollack (@AndrewPollackFL) February 28, 2019

Fortune reports:

Boeing Secures $15.7 Billion Vietnam Orders During Trump’s Hanoi Visit

Vietnam’s Bamboo Airways and VietJet Aviation JSC signed deals to buy 110 aircraft from Boeing Co. during President Donald Trump’s visit to Hanoi for a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

Bamboo agreed to purchase 10 787-9 Dreamliners worth about $3 billion, while VietJet’s order is for 100 737 Max planes valued at $12.7 billion, Boeing said Wednesday. VietJet’s 100-plane commitment was unveiled at the Farnborough air show last year. The accords were signed in the presence of Trump and Vietnam’s President Nguyen Phu Trong.

Vietnam’s airlines are expanding their fleets as rising incomes and the region’s growing economies are spurring many to fly for the first time, boosting demand in the Asia Pacific, whose air-travel market is projected to surpass that of North America and Europe combined. Demand in Vietnam is also expected to climb after U.S. regulators last month gave their approval to the nation’s air-safety system, making its airlines eligible to begin direct flights to the U.S. and codeshare with American carriers.

The Chicago-based planemaker had been involved in the effort to get the safety rating, which would allow state-owned Vietnam Airlines to launch nonstop flights to Los Angeles and San Francisco, and proceed with a long-planned order for either Boeing 777-8 or Airbus SE A350-1000 aircraft.

That’s more fantastic news for American workers.

That Was Some ‘Editor’s Note’ on the Covington Controversy Coverage

LifeZette - Sun, 03/03/2019 - 13:30

Over a week ago, attorneys representing Nicholas Sandmann, the high school boy in Kentucky (shown above right), announced they were suing The Washington Post for $250 million in compensatory and punitive damages.

If you followed this story, the kid’s lawyers went through a checklist of warnings to liberal media that was highly publicized.

Many media outlets apologized for their comments and statements; they retracted their pieces and are not being sued.

Related: Trump Backs Covington Student in Lawsuit Against Washington Post

The Washington Post has been led down the garden path and now it is time.

Here’s what The Washington Post published just the other day:

A Washington Post article first posted online on January 19 reported on a January 18 incident at the Lincoln Memorial. Subsequent reporting, a student’s statement and additional video allow for a more complete assessment of what occurred, either contradicting or failing to confirm accounts provided in that story — including that Native-American activist Nathan Phillips (shown above left) was prevented by one student from moving on, that his group had been taunted by the students in the lead-up to the encounter, and that the students were trying to instigate a conflict.

The high school student facing Phillips issued a statement contradicting his account; the bishop in Covington, Kentucky, apologized for the statement condemning the students; and an investigation conducted for the Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School found the students’ accounts consistent with videos.

Subsequent Post coverage, including video, reported these developments: “Viral standoff between a tribal elder and a high schooler is more complicated than it first seemed”; “Kentucky bishop apologizes to Covington Catholic students, says he expects their exoneration”; “Investigation finds no evidence of ‘racist or offensive statements’ in Mall incident.

A January 22 correction to the original story reads: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native-American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips said he served in the U.S. Marines but was never deployed to Vietnam. (source: The Washington Post)

The Washington Post will likely settle out of court.

The publication knows any jury outside the Ninth Circuit will throw the book at it and give those kids as much as they possibly can.

The media need to learn a lesson big-time.

Money is their bread and butter — and until something hurts their pockets, they will continue to be irresponsible.

Related: Celebs May Be Sued for Defamation After They Aimed Hate at the Covington Kids

We are all tired of the unethical, inappropriate and unsubstantiated sources and reports that are called news now.

Most journalists (AKA the propaganda machine) are failing to achieve the desired result any more, as the public isn’t agreeing with the media’s view of things — so maybe they need to rethink their brainwashing strategy or get sued.

I hope this goes all the way to the Supreme Court and ends up rewriting libel laws — making it much easier to sue and win libel cases against fear-mongering journalists and media outlets who create the news rather than report it.

Bob Knight, Legendary Basketball Coach, May Be in Declining Health

LifeZette - Sun, 03/03/2019 - 02:27

Legendary Indiana University basketball coach Bob Knight is said to be declining, according to Don Fischer, the voice of Hoosiers radio.

Fischer told “The Drive with Jack & Tom,” a radio show in Lansing, Michigan, about Knight’s health when he was asked about the 78-year-old Hall of Fame coach’s relationship with the school.

He revealed that Knight was “not well.”

“I hesitate to say anything about that right now because Coach Knight is not well,” Fischer told the radio hosts. “He’s going through some major issues and it hurts me to even talk about it just because a man with that kind of a mind, who was so tremendous at coaching the game of basketball, and you know, at the age that we get to at this point in our lives, you want to keep thinking that that brain is never going to go away, and it appears that’s a real problem for him right now and in the sense of what he’s dealing with.”

"I don't mean to intimate in any way shape or form that he's on his death bed. That's not the case, that I know of. Just that his health has declined," longtime Indiana radio voice Don Fischer said. https://t.co/HgO5joIJzp

— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) March 2, 2019

“So I can’t answer that question,” he continued. “I wish he would come back. I wish there was some way for whatever that fence is that hasn’t been mended yet could be mended. Unfortunately at this juncture, if it hasn’t been mended, I don’t know if it ever will be,” Fischer said of Knight.

Later, Fischer released a statement to the Indianapolis Star after it contacted him about the comments.

The broadcaster said he “probably shouldn’t have said what I said” and explained what he meant about Knight’s health.

Knight, who coached the Hoosiers from 1971 to 2000, led the team to three national championships.

“That’s not what I was trying to say,” Fischer said in the statement. “I don’t mean to intimate in any way shape or form that he’s on his deathbed. That’s not the case that I know of. Just that his health has declined.”

Knight, who coached the Hoosiers from 1971 to 2000, led the team to three national championships.

After he was fired from Indiana University in 2000, Knight has had a turbulent relationship with the school.

He was fired after he grabbed student Kent Harvey by the arm after a zero-tolerance policy was implemented.

MICHELLE MALKIN’S SCALDING CPAC SPEECH: The Game Is Rigged

DougRoss - Sun, 03/03/2019 - 01:28
By Michelle Malkin

I identify as an American. A proud, unhyphenated, unapologetic, fully assimilated American. My pronouns are U.S.A.

America is good and America is great. Of these basic truths, there is or should be little dispute among us here. But two questions loom large: 1) For how long will the America we grew up in remain good and great? And 2) To whom shall we entrust the existential responsibility of securing the goodness and greatness passed down peacefully for generations?

I wish I could stand here and chirp happily to you about positive news. Yes, unemployment rates are at historic lows, regulations and taxes are being cut, some stellar judges have been confirmed, and the reckless, feckless liberal media has finally, finally self-immolated like a slow-motion downing of the Hindenburg.

Yes, we have much to thank President Trump for as he battles the Beltway swamp, the deep state, the administrative state, and the fake news fourth estate. But there is no sugarcoating America’s long-term forecast. We face fearful odds. The game is rigged. The playing field is manifestly unlevel.

My first book Invasion in 2002, exposed how border failures and systemic non-enforcement of our visa program rules created a national security crisis that led to 9/11. My last book, Sold Out, which I co-authored in 2015 with former American computer programmer-turned-labor lawyer John Miano, documented how Big Business and Big Government created an economic crisis by exploiting the H-1B tech worker visa program and other foreign employment visas for cheap labor. I’ve been accused of being a grifter for wanting to inform and educate citizens about these destructive rackets. But it’s the GOP sellouts in bed with open borders – like the ones who hijacked the tea party movement to shill for amnesty – who are the real grifters cashing in and practicing deceit at the expense of their base.

Our shining city on a hill has become a much-abused doormat to the world. Building the border wall is just half the battle. The numbers tell all. Our future is dimmed. The odds are fearful.

We currently grant one million legal permanent residencies to people from around the world every year. The number of green card holders is expected to increase by 10 million by 2025. That’s more than the current combined population of Dallas, St. Louis, Denver, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. Now multiply that number by at least three and a half. Thanks to our chain migration system, created in 1952 and expanded exponentially by Congress in 1965 and 1990, these new immigrants can sponsor their entire extended families: parents, spouses, adult children and their children, and siblings and their children. Princeton University researchers found that recently admitted immigrants sponsored an average of 3.45 additional relatives each.

An estimated 85,000 refugees and 20,000-plus asylees enter the country annually through an overwhelmed system so rife with fraud and abuse that the process is jokingly dubbed “refugee roulette” by immigration lawyers. In total, from fiscal year 2008 to 2017, the U.S. gave green cards to more than 2 million migrants for various humanitarian claims – a population larger than the city of Philadelphia.

Nearly half a million more immigrants in that time frame got in through the diversity visa lottery. Illegal aliens are eligible if a legal family member wins the jackpot. Tens of thousands are pouring in from terrorism breeding grounds through the lottery unvetted, unmonitored and unassimilated. Thanks again to chain migration, immigration lotto winners’ spouses and unmarried children under 21 all get passes into the country, too.

Nearly half of all illegal aliens in the country have violated the terms of their short-term visitor or work visas. More than 10.8 million people received such visas alone in fiscal year 2015, including 500,000 foreign university and graduate students on academic visas and nearly 700,000 total foreign guest workers (both skilled and unskilled, not to mention their spouses, many of whom are allowed to work here as well).

Congress has repeatedly mandated a nationwide visa entry-exit system to track legal short-term visa holders. But one has yet to be built—even in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which were perpetrated in part by several illegal alien visa overstayers. E-verify has been stalled. Sanctuary cities metastasized. And BOTH parties are to blame – yeah I’m looking at you, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, the Bush family, Mitt Romney and the ghost of John McCain.

This unrelenting inflow of new green card holders, short-term foreign visa holders, legal temporary workers, refugees and asylees is supplemented by 13 to 30 million illegal aliens who expect amnesty and chain migration privileges from Washington despite breaking immigration laws governing everything from border jumping to ID fraud, benefits fraud, tax fraud, and marriage fraud, to human and drug trafficking, to employment rules, deportation orders, and visa overstays.

The feds have proved themselves serially unwilling and incapable of handling the lapses, backlogs, overload, and yes, invasion. The numbers tell all. Open borders anarchy, multiplied by endless chain migration, amnesty, and cheap labor pipelines, endangers our general welfare and the blessings of liberty. By every clear measure, the war is not on immigrants but on American sovereignty.

I’ve been called white for stating the facts. I’m not white. I’m just right. Both native-born and immigrant families like mine, which revere the rule of law, common traditions, constitutional principles, one identity and one tongue, have been replaced by militantly unassimilable and hostile generations…of future Democrat voters whose tribal allegiance to the Left has only hardened over time. It’s insane that we have elected Republicans on Capitol Hill doing the bidding of the illegal alien DREAMer racket. Until and unless we reclaim the right of self-determination over the numbers, we are doomed.

My fellow Americans, we stand at the bridge as Horatius stood at the narrow bridge over the Tiber River alone facing fearful odds as hordes of Etruscans marched towards him and cowards cut and run behind him. Like his enemies, our enemies are both foreign AND domestic.

Inside are flimsily defended borders, we are not at peace, or rather, the radical Left is not at peace with us. From the comfort of TV green rooms, Beltway backrooms, corporate boardrooms, and conference ballrooms, it may not look like civil war is imminent. But threats and outright violence against ordinary, law-abiding people are now regularized features, not random bugs, of political life in these dis-United States. College students are being punched, elderly citizens are being harassed, MAGA hat wearers are being kicked off planes and assaulted in school hallways and restaurants, conservative speakers are being mobbed and Molotov cocktailed, ICE agents and their families are being targeted, pro-lifers are being kicked and menaced, pro-Trump, anti-jihad moms on social media are being monitored and doxxed. The madness is beyond parody. Last week, social justice media warriors whipped up hysteria over a Mar a Lago pastry chef’s Instagram posts. Where are the sanctuary spaces for law-abiding conservatives who simply want to exercise their rights to free speech and peaceable assembly?

The divide in this country is between decent people who stand up for America and dastardly people who want to bring America to its knees.

We certainly should make common cause with others across the aisle who shares our values, but we should not rush to embrace those whose fundamental aim is to smear and destroy us all. That’s suicidal. Which is why I cannot stand here and stay silent about the role Van Jones has played in attempting to silence the Right. My objection is not to his support for criminal justice reform. I have dedicated much of my own time, energy, and money to fighting wrongful convictions, false allegations, and prosecutorial and forensic misconduct. Next time you need a conservative to talk about criminal justice reform, call me. You don’t need someone who’s going to spew fake news pro illegal alien propaganda to talk CJR to conservatives.

Fact check: The most recent research by the Federation for American Immigration Reform found that illegal aliens are up to 5.5 times more likely than Americans to be incarcerated in state prisons compared to Americans and legal residents.

But my most vehement objection is to this stage being used to lend legitimacy to the George Soros-funded organization Color of Change, which dedicated to censoring and sabotaging right-leaning groups for championing the free market, opposing radical Islam, and exposing open borders.

Seven years ago, Van Jones’ group pressured Pepsi, McDonald’s, Intuit and other companies to cut ties to the mainstream American Legislative Exchange Council(ALEC), a half-century-old association of state legislators who believe in “the Jeffersonian principles of free markets, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty.” What was ALEC’s crime? Crafting model legislation on voter ID to protect election integrity, immigration enforcement measures and self-defense legislation to strengthen Second Amendment rights.

Color of Change and the smear machine racket known as the Southern Poverty Law Center use the same playbook to marginalize and criminalize mainstream conservatives, anti-jihad groups, and immigration hawks as “hate groups” and push us out of the public square. They conspire with payment processors and Silicon Valley to deprive the Right of our voices and our ability to make a living. So many speaking up and fighting on the front lines for liberty and security are being detwittered depaypaled defacebooked deplatformed – people like Laura Loomer and Gavin McInnes and the Center for Immigration Studies and Robert Spencer and so many others. Many are in this room. Stand up if you are one of them. Many have been forced to beg for money to help them fight in court to restore their reputations. Many have been barred from this room.

Nice is not enough. Logic and facts and appeals to decency and fairness are not enough. Bemoaning double standards is not enough. Ultimately our future will not be secured in a Fox News anchor chair or a think tank office or on a cruise ship or at a cushy GOP retreat. The future is on the frontlines. At the edge of the bridge.

Then out spake brave Horatius, the captain of the Gate. To every man upon this earth death cometh soon or late. And how can man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers and the temples of his Gods.

Instead of throwing allies under that bridge, movement conservatives who have preached so comfortably here in the Beltway about defending America while preserving the status quo need to help provide financial and moral support to the disrupters willing to fight fire with fire. Maybe it’s providence that I am privileged to speak here on the 7th anniversary of Andrew Breitbart’s death. He was a disrupter. We need more disrupters. We need legislative action at the local and state level. We need politicians who will DO SOMETHING to stop the sowers of hate and their handmaidens. Use the tools at your disposal. Don’t just stand there. DO SOMETHING.

Diversity is not our strength. Unity is. Our common purpose is the common defense of our nation. Good people make America great. Good people: Stand and fight.

Obama bro Jon Favreau calls Trump’s Green New Deal claims at #CPAC the ‘craziest lies’ (OK, let’s go to the FAQ!)

Twitchy - Sat, 03/02/2019 - 21:01

As we told you earlier today, President Trump’s lengthy speech at CPAC reserved some mockery of the Dems’ Green New Deal proposal:

‘Is the wind blowing today? I’d like to watch TV’: Trump shreds Green New Deal at #CPAC (but encourages Dems to keep pushing it) https://t.co/Ntx9KQc0xq

— Twitchy Team (@TwitchyTeam) March 2, 2019

President Trump continues to mock Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal: "When I'm on the debate stage with one of these maniacs. I mean, trains to Hawaii. How do you get to Europe? We have not figured that one out yet, we don't use airplanes anymore" pic.twitter.com/F6on0kQ7B9

— Ryan Saavedra (@RealSaavedra) March 2, 2019

Pod Save America co-host and former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau thinks that’s all made up on Trump’s part:

Trump saying that the Green New Deal will eliminate all cows, planes, cars, and buildings is why Democrats should never make policy based on what we think Republicans will say. They will never criticize the policy on the merits. They will always tell the craziest lies.

— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) March 2, 2019

When you’ve been calling your opponents and their policies socialist for the last few decades, the attack sort of loses its bite.

— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) March 2, 2019

Is that so?

Hey bud…. eliminating cows and air travel was on the document she and her staff distributed… https://t.co/3A3ELzQgkN

— Cameron Cruz (@ccruz280) March 2, 2019

A document circulated to reporters and posted *on the website* of the *author of the bill* discussed ending air travel and cattle emissions. These are not ~crazy lies~ Republicans invented https://t.co/2gM8bX8PaS

— Logan Dobson (@LoganDobson) March 2, 2019

The cows thing is AOC’s fault. If you don’t want people to say you’re talking about abolishing cows, don’t talk about abolishing cows.

— Josh Barro (@jbarro) March 2, 2019

Favreau still tried to save the argument:

The fact sheet explicitly said they wouldn’t be abolishing cows, but the point is, as usual, Republicans will make that the focus instead of more believable, substantive criticism.

I still recall them making “You Didn’t Build That” the theme of an entire day of their convention

— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) March 2, 2019

The original FAQ says “get rid of farting cows” right there in black and white:

null

And we assume “full transition off fossil fuels” would mean the end of air travel, unless somebody’s come up with a way to power passenger airliners with solar panels, algae or all the passengers peddling at the same time.

It’s a good thing AOC hasn’t publicly talked about regulating cows or your statement would seem disingenuous. https://t.co/moHbOZ3feE

— BT (@back_ttys) March 2, 2019

The left focuses on the word “eliminate” to avoid acknowledging they do want to strictly regulate everything in Jon’s list.

Adam Schiff Calls in Felix Sater to Testify Before Congress on Russia — Longtime Clinton Pal, Democrat Insider and Lackey Behind Junk Buzzfeed Report

GatewayPundit - Sat, 03/02/2019 - 20:57

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff announced on Friday Democrats will call in Felix Sater to testify before Congress about a Trump hotel that was never built in Russia. The Trump Russia Hotel did not even make it to contract. There is no such place.

Schiff said there was Trump-Russia collusion.
He lied.
So now he’s investigating a phantom hotel.

This is your tax dollars in action.

Schiff says on March 14 the House Intelligence Committee will hold a public hearing with Felix Sater, a former business associate of Donald Trump who worked to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow https://t.co/agQqNqP0Q7 pic.twitter.com/pfXSbvWi11

— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) February 28, 2019

So who is Felix Sater?

Via Joe Hoft

Far Left Buzzfeed released a bogus report stating the President Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen was following President Trump’s orders to lie about an unsupported story on Russia.

Mueller’s team in an attempt to prevent a leak investigation into it’s operations came out 24 hours later and said the story was false.

Now we know that the entire junk report was provided to Buzzfeed by a Clinton and Mueller lackey, Felix Sater.

Paul Sperry came on in a report that the individual behind the Buzzfeed fake news story lying about President Trump was none other than a deep state dirt-bag related to the Clintons and Mueller and his gang of crooks:

BREAKING:Buzzfeed's "Deep Throat" source is Felix Sater, the crook-turned-asset/informant groomed by Clinton admin & handled by EDNY Loretta Lynch & Mueller attack dog Weissmann & the Source E of pee tape/other apocrypha for Clinton dossier Mueller using as Russiagate case theory

— Paul Sperry (@paulsperry_) January 25, 2019

Sperry is right.  Sater is seen in pictures with Bill Clinton – (see above).  Sater has also been pictured with far left media reporters pushing the Trump-Russia collusion fairy tale:

Sater also went on record as the being a close Cohen associate and confidante.
Felix Sater, is reportedly the Buzzfeed leaker for the Deep State.

Most shocking is Sater’s connections to the Clintons and the Mueller gang of corrupt and criminal attorneys and investigators. It was reported that Sater’s connections began in 1998  [emphasis added]:

Sater pleaded guilty to racketeering in December 1998. But instead of being sentenced, Sater, like 16 other defendants in the case, signed a cooperation agreement with the US government, and his entire case file was sealed.

Signing Sater’s cooperation agreement for the Department of Justice was Andrew Weissmann, then an assistant US attorney and now a key member of the special counsel’s team. Mueller himself would be the FBI director for most of the time Sater served as a source.

The US attorney who oversaw Sater’s pump-and-dump case was Loretta Lynch, later the attorney general under President Barack Obama. While the Senate was considering her confirmation, Sen. Orrin Hatch asked Lynch about how her office handled Sater’s fraud case. In a written response, she said:

“The defendant in question, Felix Sater, provided valuable and sensitive information to the government during the course of his cooperation, which began in or about December 1998. For more than 10 years, he worked with prosecutors providing information crucial to national security and the conviction of over 20 individuals, including those responsible for committing massive financial fraud and members of La Cosa Nostra. For that reason, his case was initially sealed.”

To the government, he was no longer Felix Sater; in public he was referred to as John Doe, while in hundreds of pages of FBI interview reports, his code name was “The Quarterback.”

The entire Clinton – Mueller cabal is coming undone.  The creeps are in the house but the night watchman knows they’re there.

Trump Rips the Ongoing Investigations Against Him During CPAC Speech

LifeZette - Sat, 03/02/2019 - 20:49

President Donald Trump on Saturday denounced the investigations against him by pointing to their changes of focus and conflicts of interests.

Trump has been at the center of federal and congressional investigations headed by a variety of people.

The president went after the numerous ongoing inquiries against him for changing the goalposts just to try to get something on him.

He specifically pointed to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

“So they don’t have anything with Russia,” Trump told the large crowd of conservatives gathered outside Washington, D.C. “There’s no collusion, so now they morph into, ‘Let’s inspect every deal he has done. We’re going to go into his finances, we’re going to check his deals, we’re going to check’ — These people are sick. I saw Little Shifty Schiff yesterday,” added the president, referring to Rep. Schiff. “It was the first time. He went into a meeting and said, ‘We’re going to look into his finances.’ I said, ‘Where did that come from?’ He always talked about Russia, collusion with Russia. [It’s] the collusion delusion.”

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) was hosting the president on the last day of its 2019 event; the conference ran from Wednesday to Saturday.

Vice President Mike Pence, during his speech to the group on Friday, looked back at past successes and shared a call to action for the future.

Special counsel Robert Mueller and his team are expected to finish their investigation and issue a report in the coming weeks. The special counsel team has been looking into possible crimes committed by the president or his associates, with a particular focus on whether or not they colluded with Russian interests during the presidential election of 2016.

Trump has accused them of bias. He has often expressed concern generally of career bureaucrats trying to undercut him illegally in what he refers to as “the deep state.”

House Democrats also have opened up additional investigations against the president since gaining a majority at the start of this year.

“Now we’re waiting on a report and we’ll find out whether or not and who we’re dealing with,” Trump said. “We’re waiting on a report from people who were not elected.”

“Now we have people that lost and unfortunately when you put the wrong people in a couple of positions, and they leave people for a long time that shouldn’t be there, and all of a sudden they’re trying to take you out with bull***,” Trump said. “Now Robert Mueller never received a vote, not did the person who appointed him. And as you know the [former] attorney general [Jeff Sessions] said, ‘I am going to recuse myself.’ And I said, ‘Why the hell didn’t he tell me that before I put him in?'”

Related: Watch: President Donald Trump Speaks at CPAC on Saturday

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to lead the special counsel investigation back in May 2017. Sessions recused himself from everything related to the allegations shortly before that. Mueller has since indicted Russian intelligence officers and made numerous charges against former associates of the president.

“Robert Mueller put 13 of the angriest Democrats in the country on the commission,” Trump said on Saturday. “Now how do you do that? These are angry, angry people, and if you take a look at them, one of them was involved with [the running of] the Hillary Clinton Foundation.”

Trump has denounced the special counsel probe as the single greatest “witch hunt” in the country’s history. The president also has accused Mueller of having conflicts of interests for his close history with people such as former FBI Director James Comey.

House Republicans also have accused agents that were part of the special counsel team of bias against the president.

“But we have conflicts,” Trump added on Saturday. “I had a nasty business transaction with Robert Mueller from a number of years ago. I said, ‘Why isn’t that mentioned?’ He wanted the job as FBI director. These are things that are out there. They know it. Why isn’t that — and I didn’t give it to him — why isn’t that ever mentioned? Jim Comey, lying James Comey, is his best friend. James Comey is his best friend. And those are a few of the conflicts.”

Trump also discussed how the economy has been improving under his watch, as well as his efforts to rework international trade deals. He criticized the media as well — a hallmark of his recent speeches — and he encouraged Democrats to pursue the far-Left Green New Deal in an apparent jab at how extreme it is.

During his speech, Trump invited to the stage Hayden Williams, the young man who was attacked by a left-leaning extremist at the University of California Berkeley recently. Williams was working on campus as a recruiter for The Leadership Institute, a conservative student group, when the extremist punched him in the face in broad daylight during a confrontation.

Zachary Greenberg, 28, was later arrested for the assault and is due in court on Monday.

HUGE! Trump Announces He Will Sign Executive Order Requiring Universities to Support Free Speech if They Want Federal Money (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sat, 03/02/2019 - 20:09

President Trump rocked CPAC on Saturday with a fiery speech that lasted over two hours.

The President gave the CPAC crowd plenty of red meat by ripping the Deep State Russia witch hunt, blasting Democrats and mocking the Green New Deal.

President Trump then made a very important announcement Saturday after he brought the conservative activist who was sucker-punched at UC Berkeley, Hayden Williams onto the stage.

“Today I am proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research dollars.”

The CPAC crowd went wild and gave President Trump a standing ovation for standing up for the First Amendment.

This is a bold move by the President and will no doubt get his base pumped up as he prepares for his 2020 presidential re-election campaign.

High School Wrestler Ends Career Rather Than Wrestle a Girl During a Match

LifeZette - Sat, 03/02/2019 - 19:32

A Colorado high school student forfeited the state tournament match rather than wrestle a girl during the match.

Brendan Johnston, 18, a senior at the Classical Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., forfeited his match against Jaslynn Gallegos, a senior at Skyview High in the first round of the tournament on Thursday, February 21, KDVR reported.

A few days later on Saturday, February 23, he forfeited the match against Angel Rios, a junior at Valley High, in the third-round consolation match, ending his high school wrestling career.

The student cited his religious and personal beliefs for forfeiting the matches.

“It’s so physical … physically close. I don’t think that’s really appropriate with a young lady. It’s also very aggressive and I’m not really, I guess, comfortable with that,” Johnston told KDVR.

Johnston has never wrestled a girl before and also forfeited against a female opponent in the state tournament last year, the media outlet reported.

“And I guess the physical aggression, too,” the student told the Denver Post. “I don’t want to treat a young lady like that on the mat. Or off the mat. And not to disrespect the heart or the effort that she’s put in. That’s not what I want to do, either.”

Rios and Gallegos ended up making history after becoming the first females to place at the tournament.

Rios placed fourth and Gallegos placed fifth.

Gallegos told The Washington Post that she understood why he forfeited.

“This whole time that I’ve wrestled, it’s just me trying to prove a point that I am just a wrestler,” Gallegos said. “And so the fact that my gender is something that kind of holds me back still is just a little nerve-racking, but I respect his decision. It’s fine.”

Rios said even though she’s disappointed by Johnston’s decision to forfeit, she’s hoping her story will motivate others to follow.

“I’m hoping it motivates them to be the best they can,” Rios said.

As for Johnston, he said he does not regret his decision.

“Wrestling is something we do, it’s not who we are,” Johnston told The Denver Post. “And there are more important things to me than my wrestling. And I’m willing to have those priorities.”

The victim was passing out information about the conservative student group when he was approached by two angry men. After a verbal altercation ensued, he pulled out his phone to begin filming.

On Friday, Zachary Greenberg (pictured below) was identified and arrested by UC Police — law enforcement booked him into jail at 1 PM.

CBS San Francisco reported that police will formally present the case to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of the filing of criminal charges, the university said.
