Here is the transcript of President Trump’s weekly address.

On September 11th, 2001, America suffered the worst terrorist attacks in our history. The attacks were carried out by foreign nationals who exploited our lax immigration laws and defrauded our immigration system in order to murder nearly 3,000 innocent people.

Following the attacks, Congress placed most immigration enforcement functions within a new agency known as the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement, meaning ICE.

One of the critical lessons of 9/11 is that immigration enforcement saves lives. We must enforce the rules against visa fraud, illegal overstay, illegal entry, and other immigration violations and crimes; and crimes they are – believe me, crimes they are. These are the practices exploited by terrorists, drug dealers, child smugglers, human traffickers, gang members – and countless unknown and unregistered criminals – to gain illicit access to our country and threaten our citizens.

In fiscal year 2017 alone, ICE arrested more than 127,000 aliens charged or convicted of crimes inside of the United States. These were very serious crimes and far too many of them.

Yet, leading Democrat politicians have called to abolish ICE – nobody even believes it, they want to abolish ICE – in other words, they want open borders and more crime. And that’s what you’re going to get. You’ll get more crime as you open up those borders.

Last week, 167 Democrats in the House of Representatives refused to vote for a resolution to support the heroes of ICE. These are brave and great men and women. They’re in the trenches every day taking the fight straight to vicious gangs. They prey on our people, they hurt our people, they kill our people.

Without the brave heroes of ICE, we would have no enforcement, no laws, no borders and therefore – we wouldn’t even have a country.

So to the courageous public servants at ICE – men and women, great ones: we want you to know that the American people are with you and my Administration has your back 100 percent.

You are the heroes who protect the lives of our citizens, the safety of our communities, and the sovereignty of our great nation.

We love you. We support you. And we always will stand with you.

Thank you. And God Bless America.

Trump was right!

On Sunday DCCC Chair Ben Ray Lujan refused to say if Democrats will abolish ICE if they take power.

Rudy Giuliani: “They’re Out of Their Minds… Trump’s Innocence Has Been Proven Over and Over Again” (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Mon, 07/30/2018 - 15:16

Former New York City Mayor and Trump Attorney Rudy Giuliani joined FOX and Friends on Monday morning to discuss the continued witch hunt against the 45th President of the United States.

Rudy told the FOX and Friends hosts that Trump did nothing wrong and his innocence has been proven.

Rudy Giuliani: It’s wild, crazy and they’re out of their minds. He did not participate in any meeting about the Russian transactions. The president did not… This is the theater of the absurd. The president’s innocence, having don nothing wrong has been proven over and over and over again. There’s not a single stitch of evidence of collusion. He had nothing to do with the Russians. They don’t deal with the Russians. He didn’t get elected because of the Russians.

And yet Dirty Cop Robert Mueller and his angry Democrats continue the witch hunt anyway and continue to harass and abuse Trump supporters.

Dinesh D’Souza Slams Democrats in New Movie for Being Too Racist for the Nazis — AND HE’S RIGHT!

GatewayPundit - Mon, 07/30/2018 - 14:21

Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza announced his latest project recently to The Hollywood Reporter.

D’Souza links President Trump to President Abraham Lincoln – the Great Emmancipator – in his latest project: Death of a Nation.

The movie is set for an August 3rd release.

The Hollywood Reporter announced today that a “controversial” segment in the movie discusses how Democrat policy in America was too racist even for Nazi socialists.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

The scene in ‘Death of a Nation’ is likely to draw attacks on D’Souza, though he is used to his detractors belittling his work.
Dinesh D’Souza’s newest film will not only make the controversial claim that Donald Trump has a lot in common with Honest Abe Lincoln, but will also suggest that Democrats were once too racist even for Nazis.

According to a clip provided exclusively to The Hollywood Reporter, the film, Death of a Nation, from the conservative provocateur contains a scene where several Nazis are discussing how they should identify Jews in the 1930s.

“How does the American identify the Negro?” asks one Nazi.

“One drop rule. Any discernible black ancestry makes one count as black,” says another.

“Even if someone acts white, they could still be counted as black?” a third Nazi asks.

That’s when D’Souza, who narrates the documentary, intones: “As for the Democratic one-drop rule, incredibly the Nazis found it too racist even for them.”

But Dinesh D’Souza is right.

The Nazis did find Democratic policy too racist.

The LA Times reported:

In the late 1920s, Adolf Hitler declared in “Mein Kampf” that America was the “one state” making progress toward the creation of a healthy race-based order. He had in mind U.S. immigration law, which featured a quota system designed, as Nazi lawyers observed, to preserve the dominance of “Nordic” blood in the United States.

The American commitment to putting race at the center of immigration policy reached back to the Naturalization Act of 1790, which opened citizenship to “any alien, being a free white person.” But immigration was only part of what made the U.S. a world leader in racist law in the age of Hitler.

Here’s more history on the racist Democrats.

IRAN IN CHAOS: Truck Drivers Continue to Strike as Currency Slides to New Record Low

GatewayPundit - Mon, 07/30/2018 - 13:33

The Iranian rial continued its slide to a new record low, dropping past 100,000 rials to the US dollar.

The currency is down 50 percent since April — just before the US pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal.

At the same time truck drivers in 125 cities and 30 provinces continued their seventh day of strikes against the regime.

Mojahedin.org reported:

The truck drivers of Iran put behind the seventh day of their nationwide strike on Sunday. Their strike spans over many of Iran’s major cities, including Isfahan, Shar-e Kord, Mashhad, Qazvin, Urmia, Kazerun, Chalus, Arak, Kermanshah, Baneh, Shiraz, and Tabriz.

At the terminal of Tarq, Isfahan, the Iranian regime’s agents had put several truck tires on sale at lower prices to break the truck drivers’ strike. But the truck drivers ignored the regime’s offers. The regime is also using trucks and organizations tied to the Revolutionary Guards to counter the effects of the truckers’ strike.

In the past seven days, truck drivers from 125 cities and 30 provinces of Iran have joined the strike and stopped their operations.

NYT Publisher Complains to Trump About ‘Potential’ Violence Against Journalists – Ignores Over 500 Violent Attacks on Trump Supporters

GatewayPundit - Mon, 07/30/2018 - 02:35

There have been over 538 violent attacks against Trump supporters since the 2016 election season.

The liberal mainstream media has ignored these violent attacks.

Instead, the liberal fake news media has fomented, encouraged and threatened, and harassed Trump supporters.

On Sunday New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger complained to President Trump about “potential” violence against reporters. The New York Times has ignored the hundreds of violent attacks against Trump supporters.

WRAL reported:

President Donald Trump and the publisher of The New York Times, A.G. Sulzberger, engaged in a fierce public clash Sunday over Trump’s threats against journalism, after Sulzberger said the president misrepresented a private meeting and Trump accused The Times and other papers of putting lives at risk with irresponsible reporting. 16

Trump said on Twitter that he and Sulzberger had discussed “the vast amounts of Fake News being put out by the media & how that Fake News has morphed into phrase, ‘Enemy of the People.’ Sad!”

In a five-paragraph statement issued two hours after the tweet, Sulzberger said he had accepted Trump’s invitation for the July 20 meeting mainly to raise his concerns about the president’s “deeply troubling anti-press rhetoric.”

“I told the president directly that I thought that his language was not just divisive but increasingly dangerous,” said Sulzberger, who became publisher of The Times on Jan. 1.

“I told him that although the phrase ‘fake news’ is untrue and harmful, I am far more concerned about his labeling journalists ‘the enemy of the people,’” Sulzberger continued. “I warned that this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence.”

Beloved Goat Dies After Being Gang-Raped by 8 Men in Mewat, India (Video)

GatewayPundit - Mon, 07/30/2018 - 01:34

A pregnant goat died after being gang-raped by eight men in Mewat, India.

The poor goat died in the attack.

The Tribune India reported:

In a ghastly act of animal abuse, a pregnant goat was allegedly gang-raped and killed by eight men in Nuh, Mewat.

The suspect, all believed to be drunk, stole the goat from her owner Aslup’s house and took her to a secluded house. It was her pain-filled bleating that caught Aslup’s attention. He found goat dead in the house. While five men fled, three stayed back to dare him to report the incident.

Police have registered an FIR under sections 377 (unnatural sex) and 429 (mischief by killing or maiming cattle) of the Indian Penal Code as well as sections under Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960.

Aslup claimed that the suspects were drug addicts. “They tried to molest her in the courtyard. When I raised alarm, villagers caught them and thrashed them. Enraged, they came back 8 hours later and took away my goat and raped her,” Aslup said.

The EU Political Scene: Will Steve Bannon Play a Role in May 2019 Parliament Elections?

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/29/2018 - 23:04

 

Guest post by Felipe Cuelho

The constellation of power in Brussels is undergoing an epochal shift. While President Juncker’s visit last week to Washington cemented his legacy as a pro-atlanticist, it’s impossible to ignore his lame duck existence. With elections coming up in May 2019 for the next European Parliament – which elects Juncker’s successor – the knives are out. A politicized relationship with the US will be front and center in that campaign.

The parliamentary leader of the European People’s Party, Manfred Weber, (a German member of the Bavarian CSU) has led the charge in such politicization – a weekly, full page ad in Brussels’ widely read Politico, has criticized President Trump in personal terms over the last 18 months. He ably muscled Juncker into the Presidency with a “coalition” government with the Socialists and libertarian(ish) ALDE parties – knifing the Socialists out of that post when Martin Schulz resigned to run for the Chancellorship in Germany. He “burrowed in” Martin Selmayr, the former chief of staff to Juncker through a whirlwind promotion to deputy secretary-general of the EU’s executive arm, the Commission – followed by the resignation of the actual secretary-general, which left Selmayr with the crown. Whomever the next European Commissioner is, and whatever their party affiliation, Selmayr will figure large in their administration. He is a globalist par excellance, and anti-American to the core.

In the other corner, the Irish-American bomb-thrower preaching world revolution – Steve Bannon, CEO of Trump-Pence 2016 and former Chief strategist of the White House. Having developed a close relationship with the EFDD’s Nigel Farage, he embarked on a grand tour of European Eurosceptic parties, developing close links with the ENF’s Marine Le-Pen, Matteo Salvini and Geert Wilders (France, Italy and Netherlands, respectively). Farage – who’s eurosceptic UK Independence Party won first place in the 2014 European elections in the UK – has an unclear role in Bannon’s new project: Assuming Brexit happens, Farage will be out of the ring during this battle royale. Bannon has such allies as Ted Malloch, Trump’s favorite to be his EU ambassador and the “most feared man in Europe” a full throttle American patriot.

While no party has yet declared their Spitzenkandidat – their candidate to succeed Juncker as President – it seems clear that tectonic shifts in European politics will make this a very different election. The Socialists, currently the second largest party in Brussels, have been bleeding support all over Europe, not least in Germany, the most populous (and therefore most numerous in the Hemicycle) country in the EU. Other large concentrations of seats (Spain, Italy, France) have all undergone fundamental changes in their political situations: Italy is governed by an EFDD-ENF coalition (5* and Lega), Spain’s EPP was impeached from power (replaced by a socialist who holds a paltry 24% of seats), and France’s Macron has not picked a party to run with yet. Macron may be holding out to play kingmaker after the election, but has been the first victim of Selmayr’s machinations: An attempt to set up a European party was frustrated on technical grounds.

Without going into the European left – a universe unto itself, which is also sure to profit nicely from the present politics – one thing we can say for certain: the ENF will not be enough by itself, nor will the EFDD see any advantage in relinquishing it’s perch as the “reasonable” eurosceptic movement – as opposed to the ENF’s burn-it-to-the-ground angle. David Cameron’s ECR group, encompassing a classical liberal movement in opposition to the dirigiste EPP may also emerge as a kingmaker.

If Bannon is to pull off another upset with his think-tank-cum-super-PAC, removing the EPP from the Throne, he will need to be promiscuous with his dark powers. With only one exception (the one-year-long Mansholt Commission), the Commission President has always been from the EPP, Socialist or ALDE parties. Bannon and his “barbarians” will have to ask themselves what their objective truly is: to deny the bipartiasn consensus of Socialist-EPP centrism another term (a scenario which could see an ALDE or ECR “safe pair of hands” in the top job), or to cultivate a longer-term alliance between europhobic european parties.

Whichever strategy he picks, the issue of the day is already before him: Europe’s 7-year budget is being decided at the moment, to great protestations from all opposition parties – even Macron’s En Marche has denounced the process, rightly positing that tying the next administration’s hands in their spending priorities – and potentially the one after that, too – makes a farce of the 2019 elections. Guy “baby Thatcher” Verhofstadt, ALDE’s leader, has made eurosceptic noises of late. Bannon’s ability to participate in opposition to that Weberian-Selmaryian straitjacket is a major test of whether he sees politics as the art of the possible, or if he plans to stay fully in the eurosceptic corner of the ring without informing the public policy process. One thing is for sure: if Weber wins this round, the low stakes of the election will make it all much less fun.

Obamas Spotted at Beyoncé and Jay-Z Concert Dancing to “N***as in Paris” (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/29/2018 - 22:08

The Obamas were spotted just outside DC Saturday night at a Beyonce and Jay-Z concert dancing to a song called “Ni**as in Paris.”

Concert attendees captured cell phone footage of the Obamas at the second of two On the Run II tour shows this weekend at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, reported HuffPost.

Jay-Z and Beyonce visited the Obamas in White House many times.

Michelle Obama has a strange obsession with Beyonce and even dressed up as Beyonce to celebrate her birthday last year.

Barack Obama is expected to hit the campaign trail in September to stump for Democrat candidates in the midterms so he faced some criticism.

CNN’s Jake Tapper criticized the Obamas and liberals immediately pounced on him.

Jake Tapper tweeted: The Democratic Party is the weakest it has been since the 1920s, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

President Trump Goes For It: Blasts Robert Mueller in Series of Tweets

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/29/2018 - 20:25

President Trump went for it on Sunday and blasted dirty cop Robert Mueller in a series of tweets.

The President pointed out the witch hunt was started by a fraudulent, Hillary-funded dossier, therefore the whole investigation is an illegal scam.

Please, Mr. President, don’t stop tweeting!

Trump tweeted: There is No Collusion! The Robert Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt, headed now by 17 (increased from 13, including an Obama White House lawyer) Angry Democrats, was started by a fraudulent Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC. Therefore, the Witch Hunt is an illegal Scam!

President Trump brought up Mueller’s obvious conflicts of interest. 

Round two: Is Robert Mueller ever going to release his conflicts of interest with respect to President Trump, including the fact that we had a very nasty & contentious business relationship, I turned him down to head the FBI (one day before appointment as S.C.) & Comey is his close friend..

Round three: ….Also, why is Mueller only appointing Angry Dems, some of whom have worked for Crooked Hillary, others, including himself, have worked for Obama….And why isn’t Mueller looking at all of the criminal activity & real Russian Collusion on the Democrats side-Podesta, Dossier?

The newly released Carter Page FISA documents confirm Obama’s corrupt FBI and DOJ relied on Hillary’s phony dossier to obtain a spy warrant on Trump’s advisor.

President Trump is correct. Mueller’s witch hunt is an illegal scam and must be shut down.

As we reported over the past year, Mueller’s team consists of a who’s who of Obama/Hillary donors and corrupt Democrat lawyers:

  • Rush Atkinson, an attorney on detail from the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section at the Department of Justice
    — Donated $200 to Clinton in 2016
  • Peter Carr – DOJ spokesman under Barack Obama.
  • Andrew Goldstein, a public corruption prosecutor on detail from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York
     Worked under Trump-basher Preet Bharara in the liberal New York southern district.
  • Adam Jed, an appellate attorney on detail from DOJ’s Civil Division. — Defended Obamacare at the DOJ.
  • Elizabeth Prelogar, an appellate attorney on detail from the Office of the Solicitor General. -Fluent in Russian; former law clerk to Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan.
  • James Quarles, a former partner at WilmerHale and a former assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate Special Prosecution Force. –Former assistant special prosecutor on the Watergate Special Prosecution Force.
  • Jeannie Rhee, a former partner at WilmerHale who has served in the Office of Legal Counsel at DOJ and as an assistant U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. — Rhee is a Clinton Foundation Lawyer and former Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel under Barack Obama.
  • Brandon Van Grack, an attorney on detail from the Justice Department’s National Security Division.
    — Led a grand jury inquiry in Northern Virginia scrutinizing former Trump associate Michael Flynn’s foreign lobbying.
  • Aaron Zebley, a former partner at WilmerHale who has previously served with Mueller at the FBI and has served as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia. — Worked with Robert Mueller at the WilmerHale firm. 
  • Zainab Ahmad, a top national security prosecutor on detail from U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York.
  • Michael Dreeben, an appellate attorney on detail from the Office of the Solicitor General, described by former colleagues as one of the brightest criminal law experts of the past two generations.

Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page were thrown off of the investigation after Trump-hating text messages between the two FBI agents were discovered by the IG.

Janice Atkinson, MEP: The EU Is Killing Itself from the Inside. As All Dictatorships Do

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/29/2018 - 19:57

Guest post by Janince Atkinson, MEP
Janice is an independent member of the European Parliament for the South East England region.

Eu Flag Brexit European British Uk Europe Britain

As prime minister Mrs. May does a whistle stop tour of EU capitals to try and garner support for her version of Brexit, she is ignoring the people who are and will be ruling the EU over the coming months and years.

She is meeting the leaders of the Czech Republic and Austria this week. Czech’s Andrej Babis, whose party sits with arch- enemy, Guy Verhofstadt in the European Parliament, is no friend to the UK or to Brexit. They are a federalist liberal group.

In Austria, we have a little more hope, but she is not meeting ENF partners, the FPO, who are in coalition with Sebastian Kurz, with whom she is meeting.

The Brexit Remainers at home in the UK have stepped up their ‘Project Fear’ of leaving the EU. They warn we should be stockpiling food and medicines could run out if we leave or don’t get a (bad) deal from the EU. Of course, non-EU Switzerland must have terrible problems with food and medicines.  If so, I didn’t see this a couple of weeks ago when I was in their direct democracy, low tax thriving country.

Meanwhile, the rest of the world moves on. Jean-Claude Juncker got assurances of a trade deal within two hours of meeting President Trump. Mrs. May has had two years dealing with Brussels and still no deal.

Of course, it’s political, you can check out of the EU but you can never leave.

The EU fears that ‘Global Britain’ will do just fine on its’ own. Trading in services, financial products, food and technology, they fear a low tax, high energized economy will emerge and other states will want to leave.

Well, other states want to leave too, or at least have their own exit referenda.  Mrs. May should be actively encouraging this.  She should be speaking to the opposition parties across the EU, those that will be stronger, with more MEPs, MPs and in government in the coming year. Those that support the UK and want a free trade deal, closer ties, closed borders, a Europe of Nations and Freedom should be friends and allies.

Our Commonwealth partners of New Zealand and Australia want us to join the Trans Pacific Partnership, which we cannot do if we remain shackled to the EU, which is Mrs. May’s plan.

On his very welcome visit to the UK recently, President Trump warned Mrs. May that her plan risked a no deal with the US.

Mrs. May is no true conservative, she cannot see the wasted opportunities if she doesn’t seal deals for our great country and the goal of trade liberalism.

The EU is tearing itself apart on uncontrolled immigration; one of the reasons people voted for Brexit was to control our borders and who comes here.

This week saw Spain’s EU puppet socialist government see an invasion into its territories of Ceuta and Mellila in Morocco. Hundreds of migrants armed with lime (caustic and dangerous), knives and faeces, stormed Spain’s Guardia Civil. Although armed with guns, the Guardia Civil are not allowed to fire their arms whilst under attack.  It is no coincidence that when the conservative coalition fell, due in part to corruption, instead of having a general election, an EU socialist puppet was put in place.  It is no coincidence that as Italy closed its borders to migrants, the Spanish opened theirs.

The EU is killing itself from inside, as all dictatorships do.

It won’t be Brexit that brings it down, it will be an invasion and a migrant crime wave, as detailed in my book, The Migrant Crime Wave.

GIULIANI: Michael Cohen is a Pathological Liar, He Destroyed Himself as a Witness (VIDEO)

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/29/2018 - 19:45

President Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox News Sunday to discuss the ongoing Michael Cohen drama with Chris Wallace.

Michael Cohen, a longtime lawyer to Donald Trump has recently flipped on the President, perhaps because he is being squeezed by Mueller in another case related to a taxi cab company he was financially involved in.

Giuliani called Michael Cohen a pathological liar and said he destroyed himself as a witness.

Cohen had a proclivity for recording conversations with clients and other people without their knowledge and now he’s using his private recordings with Trump to harm and harass the President.

Michael Cohen even lied to CNN’s Chris Cuomo and recorded a 2 hour conversation he had with Cuomo even though he told the CNN host the conversation was off the record.

All of these lies and Cohen leaking a potentially doctored recording of Trump which aired on CNN last week has destroyed Cohen as a witness, says Giuliani.

Laughing All The Way to the Bank: Zuckerberg, Facebook Insiders Dumped Billions Worth of Shares Since Massive Scandal

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/29/2018 - 17:33

When aiming to gain insight about which stocks are strong and which are weak, sophisticated investors often examine insider buying and selling reports. When the executives of publicly traded companies buy or sell shares in their own businesses, they are required to report those transactions in public disclosures.

As pointed out by Bloomberg and YourNewsWire, Mark Zuckerberg, among other Facebook executives, has been one of the most steadfast sellers of Facebook stock since the Cambridge Analytica scandal surfaced mid-March.

Zuckerberg’s selloff accounted for 90% of the total as part of a planned announcement last fall.

Mark Zuckerberg was not the only Facebook executive has had recently dumped shares. Jan Koum, the creator of WhatsApp, sold off almost half-a-billion dollars worth of stock and Sheryl Sandberg, the Facebook COO known for promising assistance from Facebook to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, sold $77 Million worth of her Facebook holdings.

It’s impossible to know exactly why the Facebook executives sold their stocks, as the insider-activity disclosures do not require executives to list a specific reason for buying and selling shares.

Feds Suspiciously Revise Obama’s GDP Up and President Trump’s GDP Down – Still Debt to GDP Decreasing!

GatewayPundit - Sun, 07/29/2018 - 15:49

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The US GDP Numbers were released on Friday and after accounting for new revisions [?] and seasonal adjustments[?], the debt to GDP ratio still continues to decrease.

The US GDP for the second quarter accelerated to a whopping 4.1% under the leadership of President Donald Trump.  This was another BIG Trump win doubling the first quarter growth of 2.2%.

#UnitedStates #GDP Growth Rate QoQ Adv at 4.1% https://t.co/sUMfkn31hz pic.twitter.com/lgWEP4WrR0

— Trading Economics (@tEconomics) July 27, 2018

Some changes were uncovered when reviewing the GDP numbers from FridayThe major change being that the US Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) put through some revisions this quarter that reduced the amount of actual GDP reported in 2017 by a quarter of a trillion dollars but increased the amount of GDP in the Obama years.   A comparison of the GDP previously reported by the BEA with the current amounts follows ->

It’s not clear what the revisions are in the report but clearly they increase the GDP during the Obama years while decreasing the actual total amount of GDP under President Trump in 2017 and beyond.

Nevertheless, when comparing the amount of US Debt from the government’s daily report of debt to the amount of GDP from the current release, the amount of debt to GDP is decreasing under President Trump (a good thing). 

Even with the revisions this quarter, the ratio of debt to GDP is decreasing drastically – from 105.3% to 103.9% since the election!

It’s clear the amount of debt is decreasing compared to GDP. Obama increased this ratio by 40% while President Trump is decreasing this ratio.  What’s not clear are the “revisions” from the BEA that increase Obama’s numbers while decreasing President Trump’s.
