Politics will never be the same, thanks to President Trump.

President Donald Trump has shattered the mold as to how conservatives interact with the American people, the opposition, and the media.

You may argue that “the opposition” and “the media” are one in the same thing, and I would have to grant you that…, but for the sake of this article, and its intentions, I am choosing to address them as separate entities.

I contend that due to President Trump’s complete overhauling of the way politicians, especially the president, communicate with the American people, the opposition, and the media, we should properly identify the year based on the event of President Trump’s presidential campaign and election.

President Trump showed all of the conservatives that it was OK to take a conservative stand, and not apologize for it.

President Trump showed all of the conservatives that it was OK to stand up to the fake news media and call them out for what they are.

averitas 2

Therefore, I am proposing that the year President Trump was elected (2016) be designated as “Year Zero.”

“Year Zero” will stand out as a miraculous year.  This is the year that Donald Trump won the presidency of the United States, despite the democrats, of course, being against him, most republicans being against him, most of the media being against him, and many countries around the world contributing millions and millions of dollars to defeat him on Hillary Clinton’s behalf.

“Year Zero” was the year that average Americans stood up and said, “We’re taking a stand for ourselves and our country, and we’re not taking this same old political crap anymore!”

“Year Zero” was the first year in a long, long, time, that our president worked solely on behalf of the American people.

“Year Zero” was the first year in a long, long, time, that our president wasn’t beholden to anybody or any special interest groups, other than the American people.

“Year Zero” was the first year in a long, long, time, that our president wasn’t put our country’s concerns and the American peoples’ concerns first.

“Year Zero” was the first year in a long, long, time, that our president began to take our government back from the unelected and unaccountable, treasonous, deep state…, otherwise known as “the swamp.”

“Year Zero” should be remembered just like we remember 1776!

The years before President Trump was elected should be designated as “BT,” or “Before Trump.”

The years after President Trump was elected should be designated as “AT,” or “After Trump.”

“BT” would act as “BC” does now and “AT” would act as “AD” does now.

Soooo, 2015 would now be 1 BT, 2014 would 2 BT, etc.

2017 would be 1 AT and 2018 would be 2 AT, etc.

Using the Trump year designators would allow to put things in the proper political perspective.

For example:

The ObamaCare law went into effect 6 BT.

9/11 occurred in the year 15 BT.

We are currently in the year 3 AT.

President Trump will be re-elected in the year 4 AT.

Either Mike Pence or Ivanka Trump will be elected our 46th president in the year 8 AT.

And so on.

Let me know what you think about the idea!

Perhaps we can promote some grassroots support and make the Trump year designators a reality!

Well, well, well.  The “liberal chickens” are certainly coming home to roost, regarding the democrats’ whistleblower.  

According to Victor Morton of The Washington Times, “The attorney representing the Ukraine whistleblower tweeted about starting a “coup” against President Trump that would end with his impeachment almost as soon as he took the oath of office.”

Hmmm, you don’t say?

Only 10 days after President Trump’s inauguration ceremony, “Mark S. Zaid wrote on his certified Twitter account on Jan. 30, 2017, Mr. Trump’s 11th day in power, “#coup has started. First of many steps. #rebellion. #impeachment will follow ultimately. #lawyers https://t.co/FiNBQo6v0S — Mark S. Zaid (@MarkSZaidEsq) January 31, 2017’”

azaid 16

I notice Zaid uses “Esq” in his twitter “handle,” or user name.  The usage of “Esq” seems pretty haughty.  “Esq.” is an abbreviation for esquire, which is a title used by attorneys in the United States. The term esquire has a different meaning in English Law.  It is a title used to signify dignity, which ranks above gentleman and directly below knight.            It is a title of respect accorded to men of higher social rank.

I only mention this because this is a common liberal trait…, thinking they are better than or above the rest of us…, of a “higher social rank.”

It just helps understand where Mr. Zaid Esq. is coming from.

“Mr. Zaid’s tweet was in response to the firing of Sally Yates as acting attorney general for refusing to follow Mr. Trump’s orders on immigration policy.”

It was at this point that the treasonous members of the deep state realized they weren’t running the show, and they didn’t like it!

“Mr. [President] Trump referred to the story at a campaign rally in Louisiana on Wednesday night, calling the attorney a ‘sleaze ball.’”

Nicely put, Mr. President!

‘“It’s all a hoax, it’s a scam,’ the president said.”

“According to a report on Fox News, Mr. Zaid also repeatedly crowed about how ‘we’ and the media will force Mr. Trump from office.”

‘“I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president,’ he wrote in one tweet and ‘we will get rid of him, and this country is strong enough to survive even him and his supporters’ in another.”

“Both tweets were posted in July 2017, almost two years before Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was even in office to speak with Mr. Trump on the phone.”

“The Trump reelection campaign said the tweets prove that Democrats’ complaints about impeachable offenses have always been about bad-faith searches for a pretext.”

They also add additional proof that there actually was, and is, a treasonous deep state community that needs to be dealt with…, with extreme prejudice.

“Added Donald Trump Jr.: ‘Of course he did. Everyone knows the coup started on November 9, 2016. Quit your fake sanctimony! Everybody who’s been watching this [b.s.] for three years sees what a farce it has been all along.’”

Gregg Re of Fox News reported, “Trump hits whistleblower attorney’s 2017 plan for a ‘coup’ against his administration.”

“President Trump, at a [Keep America Great] campaign rally in Louisiana Wednesday night, unloaded on whistleblower attorney Mark Zaid, after a Fox News article from earlier in the day revealed that Zaid had tweeted about the beginning of a ‘coup’ against the president back in 2017.”

“The president extensively quoted from the article, which reported that Zaid has long called for Trump’s impeachment — even promising two years ago, ‘We will get rid of him.’”

“Zaid now represents the intelligence community whistleblower who is at the center of Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against the president. The whistleblower has alleged that, earlier this year, Trump improperly threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine for political reasons.”

‘“Democrats must be accountable for their hoaxes and their crimes,’ Trump said, holding a printout of the Fox News piece.”

‘“I don’t know if you saw, I’m just coming off the plane, and they hand me — look at this character. They just hand me this story, “’Coup has started,” whistleblower attorney said in 2017.’”

azaid 1

“Trump added: ‘That was a long time ago.  It’s all a hoax.  They say, January 2017 — a “coup has started,” and the “impeachment will follow ultimately.”  It’s all a hoax. It’s a scam. And, you know who helps them? These people back here — the media.’”

“And, amid a slew of impeachment-related posts, Zaid assured his Twitter followers that ‘as one falls, two more will take their place,’ apparently referring to Trump administration employees defying the White House.”

‘“Can you believe this?” Trump asked. ‘Just came out. It’s a disgrace. These people are bad people. They rip the guts out of our country.’”

“Trump also hammered The Washington Post, saying, ‘19 minutes after I took the oath of office, the horrible, disgusting Washington Post — which is a terrible paper — an article comes out, ‘The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.’”

‘“Is there any place you would rather be than a Trump rally, on a beautiful evening in Louisiana?’ Trump asked, as the crowd chanted, ‘lock her up,’ and cheered.”

My answer is ‘no.”  I know I enjoy your rallies, Mr. President, and I wish I could have been there.

“Over a thousand people were gathered outside the Monroe Civic Center early Wednesday morning, and over 40,000 people obtained tickets for the event!”

Now…, regarding our pathetic, “hearsay” whistleblower…, Dr. Sebastian Gorka tweeted that the alleged “whistleblower” is believed to be, one, Eric Ciaramella.

azaid 9

Parts of Mr. Ciaramella’s “illustrious resume” include:

Protégé of former CIA Director, John “the treasonous turd” Brennan.  Brennan was also the one who sent him to work in The White House during Obama’s reign.

Ciaramella also worked for Susan “the puppet” Rice.

He travelled with and advised then Vice President “sleepy, creepy” Joe Biden on The Ukraine.

Well…, you get the picture.

azaid 10

“Ciaramella.”  That sounds like some kind of sickness or disease, like salmonella!

Maybe we should adopt that name as the disease of the liberal mind?!

azaid 15

Is it just me, or do these tweezer necked, sissy boy, liberal turds all look the same?

azaid 11

The question is was there a whistleblower looking for an attorney or was there a congressman (“Shifty” Adam Schiff) and an attorney looking for a willing accomplice and a whistleblower?

I would tend to believe it was the latter.

azaid 4

azaid 8

In either case…, it appears the democrats are becoming less and less interested in allowing their whistleblower to testify or be cross examined.  I wonder why that is?

WINNING!

“Brennan and Clapper sittin’ in a tree, P-L-E-A-D-I-N-G (the fifth)…, first comes lying, then comes spying…, then comes Brennan and Clapper crying!”

According to Gregg Re and Ed Henry of Fox News, “U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into potential FBI and Justice Department misconduct in the run-up to the 2016 election through the spring of 2017 has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation, two sources familiar with the investigation told Fox News.”

atreason 16

“One source added that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s upcoming report on alleged FBI surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign will shed light on why Durham’s probe has become a criminal inquiry.  Horowitz announced on Thursday his report would be available to the public soon, with ‘few’ redactions.”

“The investigation’s new status means Durham can subpoena witnesses, file charges, and impanel fact-finding grand juries.”

atreason 14

“Sources also told Fox News that Durham was ‘very interested’ to question former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former CIA Director John Brennan.”

atreason 3

It has also been recently reported that all of these un-elected, deep state, scumbags have started to “lawyer up.”

When Trump supporters were chanting “DRAIN THE SWAMP!” during his rallies, this is exactly what we were talking about!

Thank you Sir for keeping another one of your campaign promises here.

atreason 6

And just think…, if Hillary Clinton had won, we would have never learned about any of this.

Can you imagine how popular she is among all of these “swamp monsters” who are being dragged out into the sunlight thanks in part to her ineptness?

The problem is none of these treasonous vermin can throw each other under the bus without harming themselves as well.

atreason 9

It’s a beautiful thing.  When one goes down they will all go down.

atreason 11

This is one of the reasons why the democrats are SOOOO desperate to keep their illegitimate “impeachment inquiry” active, so as to give the “liberal propaganda, fake news media” something to focus on as opposed to all of this treasonous and illegal behavior by the democrats.

“Brennan and Clapper [and let’s not forget James Comey] were at the helm… when an unverified and largely discredited dossier, written by British ex-spy Christopher Steele and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee, was used to help justify a secret surveillance warrant against former Trump adviser Carter Page in the run-up to the 2016 election.”

atreason 1

atreason 5

This “secret surveillance warrant” then gave the Obama Administration, the Clinton campaign and our mislead intelligence services carte blanche access into spying on the entire Trump campaign.

atreason 12

atreason 7

atreason 8

“The FBI apparently obscured the fact that the Clinton campaign and DNC funded the dossier in its warrant application, telling the secret court only that the dossier was prepared at the behest of an unidentified presidential campaign.”

The FBI then “doubled down” by lying in its original FISA application and subsequent renewals.  The FBI intentionally lied to the FISA court about Steele’s dossier not being the direct source for a Yahoo News article implicating Carter Page in Russian collusion.

These were all lies, it seems, the “esteemed” FISA court was more than willing to accept.

Have you noticed the FISA court has not seemed too distraught over the fact that they were intentionally (and it appears, willingly) mislead.

It’s all one disgusting, swampy, hot mess.  But that’s the way these swamp rats like it. The more convoluted and confusing the better.  All the better for them to weasel their way out of any accountability and any potential wrong doing.

Becket Adams of The Washington Examiner says, regarding John Brennan, “Lastly, and maybe this is a little petty, but I really don’t have the time or energy for all these piety lectures from a known liar and sneak. As I’ve noted before, we’re not so fallen a people that we deserve these sermons from an ex-CIA director whose chief qualities are being a bald-faced liar and a drone war enthusiast.”

Ouch!

atreason 20

“From spying on the U.S. Senate, to lying repeatedly about spying on the U.S. Senate, to supporting torture programs until they were no longer politically expedient, to lying about drone war kills, Brennan would do better to leave the ethics lectures to the ethical.”

Double ouch!

Debra Heine, of the American Greatness website, says, “During an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo Sunday morning, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) suggested that former CIA director John Brennan lied under oath to Congress in May 2017.”

It also seems clear he lied on other occasions as well.

There are supposed to be penalties for lying to Congress.

Section 1621 of the U.S. Code stipulates that anyone who “willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true” is guilty of perjury and shall be fined and/or imprisoned up to five years.

Section 1001 covers false statements made while not under oath. The section stipulates that “whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the government of the United States, knowingly and willfully” provides false information or conceals information may also be fined or imprisoned up to five years.

According to Madeline Osburn for The Federalist, “Five years ago to this month, former director of national intelligence James Clapper lied to Congress, and he has been scrambling to make excuses for the ongoing lies and leaks ever since.”

“In March 2013, Sen. Ron Wyder asked Clapper under oath if the U.S. government was collecting ‘any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans.’ Clapper paused and said, ‘No, sir. … Not wittingly.’ Three months later, Edward Snowden leaked documents revealing that the National Security Agency was in fact collecting in bulk domestic call records and other various internet communications on millions of Americans.”

“This was the first of many ‘untruths,’ as Clapper likes to call them. There are other lies Clapper has cooked up since trying to explain his false statements under oath.”

“Clapper leaked information about the dossier briefing to [Jake] Tapper [of CNN], lied to Congress about leaking, and was then given a contributor contract with CNN a few months later. As Mollie Hemingway reported, these lies would all eventually prove to be a set-up scheme by Clapper and then-FBI director James Comey to give legitimacy to the fabricated dossier.”

“Clap on, clap off…, clap on, clap off, the CLAPPER!”

atreason 10

“Nevertheless, in responding to the expanded Durham probe, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff, D-Calif., accused the Trump administration of misconduct.”

‘“These reports, if true, raise profound new concerns that the Department of Justice under Attorney General William Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge,’ they said. ‘If the Department of Justice may be used as a tool of political retribution, or to help the President with a political narrative for the next election, the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage.’”

Oh no they didn’t!

Please tell me Nadler and Schiff did not accuse President Trump of “political revenge” and “political retribution,” and bemoan the fact that that “the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage!”

These people are the ones seeking “political revenge” and “political retribution!”

They’ve been seeking “political revenge” and “political retribution” since President Trump’s inauguration day, back in January of 2017, and they haven’t taken a day off since!

My friends…, if there is ANY justice in this world, President Trump will receive some level of vindication, and more than a few of these swamp rats will spend at least some time behind bars.

These are our “Public Servants?”

More like privileged and perverted “swamp” rats serving themselves!

Ah yes…, “the swamp” rears its ugly head yet again.

Judson Berger of Fox News reports of, “More GSA [General Service Administration] debauchery: Probe finds ex-official had sex on agency’s roof with White House staffer!”

Well isn’t that special?!

I like that word “debauchery!”

The perfect word in this case, meaning “excessive indulgences.”

But before we look into this exemplary behavior…, what is the GSA, and what exactly is it supposed to be doing?

According to on-line sources, “The General Services Administration (GSA), is an independent agency of the United States government that was established in 1949 to help manage and support the basic functioning of other federal agencies.”

Ok…, now I must ask, what is an “independent agency,” as opposed to regular old run-of-the-mill agency?

“Independent agencies of the United States federal government are agencies that exist outside the federal executive departments (those headed by a Cabinet secretary) and the Executive Office of the President.  [These] agencies, while constitutionally part of the executive branch, are independent of presidential control, usually because the president’s power to dismiss the agency head or a member is limited.”

In other words, the GSA answers to no one and has no accountability.

So what we have here is an unaccountable “agency” managing other “agencies,” thus making them unaccountable as well.

Brilliant!

Hmmm.  Nothing potentially wasteful or “sketchy” about this arrangement!

“Manage and support the basic functioning of federal agencies” how, exactly?

“The GSA supplies products and communications for U.S. government offices, provides transportation and office space to federal employees, and develops government-wide cost-minimizing policies and other management tasks.”

I’d like to see some examples of these “government-wide cost-minimizing policies.”

I have the feeling that the GSA doesn’t really understand the meaning of the word “minimize,” nor do they particularly care.

gsa 3

“The GSA employs about 12,000 federal workers and has an annual operating budget of roughly $20.9 billion. GSA oversees $66 billion of procurement annually. It contributes to the management of about $500 billion in U.S. federal property.”

12,000 employees?!

That’s a lot of “managing and supporting of the basic functioning of federal agencies!”

These federal agencies must all run with the utmost efficiency and effectiveness!

I hate being so skeptical all of the time, but really, how can you not be?

“The GSA’s business lines [Business lines?!] include the Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) and the Public Buildings Service (PBS), as well as the Office of Government-wide Policy, the Office of Small Business Utilization, and the Office of Mission Assurance. The GSA’s Technology Transformation Services (TTS) helps federal agencies improve delivery of information and services to the public.  Other initiatives include the USA.gov platform, the U.S. Web Design System, and IT Modernization.”

Were these guys involved with the “ObamaCare” website?

Just sayin’.

Judson Berger continues, “This same agency that sparked a firestorm during the Obama administration for lavish spending at a Vegas conference – complete with a widely mocked photo of a grinning fed lounging in a hot tub – is back in the headlines.”

gsa 1

In case you don’t recall, here is a little summary of their “all expenses paid” 2012 Las Vegas conference (Keep in mind that the meal and incidental expenses allowance was $71 per day at the time.  $71 X 300 attending employees would = $21,300 allowable in total.):

$31,000 on a “networking reception” that featured $19-per-person “American artisanal cheese display” and $7,000 in sushi.

$3,200 on a session with a mind reader.

$5,600 for in-room parties.

$100,405.37 in employee travel costs to scout the event–meaning, these people returned to the Las Vegas area multiple times to visit hotels before settling on the fancy M Resort and Casino.

$3,700 for T-shirts.

$2,800 in water bottles.

$1,500 each for a “Boursin scalloped potato with Barolo wine-braised short ribs” dinner, and a $525 bartender fee for a cash bar.

Three officials spent almost $400 for rented tuxedos.

$1,840 for vests for the 19 “regional ambassadors” and other employees.

$146,527.05 was spent on catered food during the entire conference.

$6,325 was spent on commemorative coins in velvet boxes to reward all participants for their work on stimulus projects.

$75,000 for a “team-building” exercise.

And no…, I’m not kidding.  All of this was on another Inspector General’s report and further reported by The Washington Post and the Associated Press.

Today’s headlines pertain to “an incident involving a former [GSA] official, vodka and … yada yada yada, and some sex on a roof.”

“The details from the 2017 liaison emerged in a newly released inspector general report. The watchdog’s investigation found multiple violations committed by Brennan Hart, a former associate administrator and acting chief of staff at the General Services Administration.”

gsa 2

How many “inspector general reports” are going on out there, and is anyone ever actually held accountable for what they uncover?

“According to the 2018-dated report, Hart admitted to investigators that he kept a bottle of vodka at his desk, while stating he only drank after business hours.”

Oh…, well, that’s alright then!

“In the same interview, he also admitted to having ‘sexual relations’ at GSA headquarters in July 2017 with a White House staffer, whom the report does not identify.”

“The visit began with Hart fixing a drink using the bottle of vodka after business hours, of course). The encounter developed from there.”

“He said, ‘their sexual activity began in the Administrator suite area and culminated with oral sex on the rooftop of the Central Office,’ the report said. ‘Hart stated this occurred on only one occasion.’”

Thank you, Mr. Hart.  I believe once is enough.

More questionable spending by GSA employees has also come to light recently.

gsa 5

Fox News reports that, “Nearly 100 high-ranking General Services Administration employees assigned to work from home reportedly still spent $750,000 on travel over nine months, according to records submitted to Capitol Hill committees, prompting the agency to respond Saturday to a request for more information.”

“The GSA said the agency has already begun ‘conducting an extensive review of our agency’s operations, which includes our travel policy. Our agency remains committed to eliminating any excessive spending and promoting government efficiency.’”

Bwahahahahahahahahah!

Please…, don’t insult our intelligence any more than you already have!

gsa 6

“An agency spokeswoman [further] said in a statement the GSA holds ‘all employees to the highest ethical standards and takes appropriate actions to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.’”

Bwahahahahahahahahah!

These people are funny!

What we need is a GSA reality TV show!

Now that would be worth watching!

“In addition, GSA Administrator Emily Murphy told investigators she ‘often permits the consumption of alcohol in her office … by her immediate staff after business hours on Fridays,’ though she is ‘very careful about such approvals.’”

I’m sure you are Emily…, I’m sure you are.

CNN’s ratings have fallen, and they can’t get up!

Yes…, CNN’s ratings are falling like a rock, and they have been for quite a while now.

A once proud and even iconic new channel, which had been trumpeted by the unmistakable voice of James Earl Jones, is in deep trouble.

Their ratings are collapsing.

People began seriously questioning the credibility of the biased, fake news media, led by CNN, during the Obama years, and then especially during President Trump’s campaign run, the beginning of his presidency, and right on up to today.

cnn 14

Conservatives don’t watch the channel anymore because their philosophy is constantly under attack on this network, and the “fake news” and liberal propaganda was just too much to bear.  Many liberals have become disenchanted with CNN as well due to the growing lack of credibility and an increase of misinformation, especially where the Mueller Report and Russian Collusion were involved.

CNN has taken the acceptable amount of liberal bias to a whole new level.

Beyond the realm of bias into the world of unabashed propaganda.

cnn 8

cnn 7

cnn 3

cnn 2

According to Brian Flood of Fox News, “News network CNN is planning to reduce its headcount, leaving many staffers worried for their jobs. As the network’s ratings continue to sag, over 100 CNN employees have accepted voluntary buyouts…”

“CNN’s audience shriveled in the second quarter of 2019, averaging typically less than half of Fox News Channel’s average. But CNN struggled even more during the prime time hours, finishing as the fifteenth most-watched network on basic cable behind networks such as TLC, Investigation Discovery and the Hallmark Channel.”

The Hallmark Channel?

At this point, more people are tuning in to watch “SpongeBob Squarepants” than Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo or Don Lemon.

cnn 12

“CNN is suffering a credibility crisis… with no apparent plan in place to fix things anytime soon, according to media watchdogs and insiders.”

Of course not!

Don’t you get it?!

They’re not going to try and “fix” anything because they don’t think anything is broken!

They’re pumping out the liberal propaganda and fake news just like they intend to.

In their eyes we’re the ones who are broken, not them!

Don’t worry about CNN.  They’ll continue to be subsidized by their big liberal corporate friends, like Nike, Starbucks, Apple, Google, Time Warner, Under Armor and a hundred others.

“CNN did not immediately respond when asked for comment.”

Does this surprise anybody?

CNN’s programming strategy is anti-Trump all the time.

They have abandoned ANY semblance of fairness or balance.

“Cable news viewership has declined in general as more and more consumers cut the cord in favor of streaming services, but CNN’s losses are overwhelming. The network lost 18 percent of its audience compared to the second quarter of last year. CNN also dropped a whopping 38 percent of prime time viewers among the key demo [demographic].”

I’m sure MSNBC will be following CNN’s lead in the near future.

Only one network at a time can be flushed down the toilet!  They’re all in there swirling around the bowl right now, and CNN is closest to the drain!

WINNING!

What?!  The head of the Department of Homeland Security leaked information about their own planned raids?!

Who is this Benedict Arnold and why is he still employed?!

Brooke Singman, of Fox News, reported that, “Acting [Department of] Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kevin McAleenan is being accused of leaking plans last week for scheduled Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids, after expressing fierce opposition and allegedly ordering top officials to ‘stand down’ on the operation.”

“A source familiar with the matter told Fox News that when the operation was in its planning phase two weeks ago, McAleenan ordered ICE Acting Director Mark Morgan to call off the deportation operation that was expected to target 2,000 families in up to 10 cities across the country. President Trump, however, ordered that Morgan continue as planned.”

If this is true…, Kevin McAleenan should at the very least be fired, along with being charged with reckless endangerment of the lives of the men and women who are to execute these raids on illegal immigrants who had already been ordered to leave the United States. It is anyone’s right to disagree with any given operation, but it IS NOT anyone’s right to intentionally sabotage an authorized operation and place people’s lives at risk!

dhs 1

What is wrong with these people!

In the military, disobeying a direct order, especially from The Commander in Chief, would get you a court martial.

This is just another example of an unelected, deep state, “swamp monster” deciding to take matters in their own hands against the administration’s wishes.

dhs 2

 

I’m sure former President Obama is finding the whole thing quite entertaining, as these holdover traitors from his administration continually cause these types of self-inflicted embarrassments for the Trump administration.

It’s a shame, but it really can be avoided either.  You just can’t fire thousands and thousands of people from all of these different departments. The problem is that Washington D.C. is infested with liberals, and therein lies the problem. That’s “the swamp.”

Also…, saying that 2,000 “families” are being targeted is misinformation being used as a way of ginning up some level of sympathy for these individuals…, and that’s what they are…, individuals.  We have no way of knowing what their “family” situation may or may not be.

Singman added that, “On Friday, The Washington Post published a story with explicit details of the planned raids, citing U.S. officials familiar with the operation. The story, written by Post immigration reporter Nick Miroff, said the raids would take place before dawn, in major cities including Houston, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles. Miroff also reported that the planned raids would begin on Sunday.”

And everyone at the Washington Post thought this was a good idea as well?

Do you think The Washington Post would have printed the plans for D-Day if they could have gotten their hands on them?

This whole situation really makes me wonder.

Tom Homan, the former head of ICE, stated, ‘“You’ve got the acting secretary of Homeland Security resisting what ICE is trying to do,’ Homan said. ‘He does not support this operation, and I tell you what, if that’s his position, then he’s on the wrong side of this issue.’”

And that, I would say is putting it mildly.

“He noted that the leaked story ‘gave the location of the cities, the day this was supposed to start, how many targets’ and added: ‘This leak — which I know where the leak came from, I think we all know where the leak came from, that story only benefits one person — put these officers at greater risk of harm.’”

‘“To have somebody within DHS leak this information that would have put the general public, as well as our officers in danger—that is one of the most egregious leaks I have ever seen in my life,’ the source told Fox News, noting that ‘you can’t go forward with an operation once everyone knows the time, the place, the details. ICE officers and other law enforcement would have been put directly in harm’s way.’”

“Sources also told The Washington Examiner that McAleenan was behind the leak.”

If Kevin McAleenan was behind the leak, I would suggest to him that he not turn his back to any ICE agents if he happens to be out in the field for any reason.

The President has since announced that the plan would be delayed for two weeks to give congressional Democrats and Republicans time to come to a bipartisan solution on the border crisis. Trump warned though that if an agreement could not be reached, deportations would begin.

“The change of plans came after [President] Trump, earlier in the week, said that ICE would ‘begin the process of removing millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States.’”

Delaying the raids by two weeks was a good call Mr. President.  Not only does it put the onus back on Congress…, but it allows the administration time re-plan the raids, with an emphasis on keeping sensitive information away from these saboteurs and rats.

“DemoRATS” to be specific!

WINNING!

John McCain and his family showed their true colors at his funeral.

And what are the McCain family colors?

Blue (vs. red)…, and yellow.

In yet another display of classlessness, the McCain family snubbed John McCain’s running mate for the presidency in 2008.

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “Sarah Palin says it was a ‘gut punch’ not to be invited to the funeral of her 2008 running mate, the late Senator John McCain, last year.”

mccain funeral

“Palin, who was tapped as McCain’s pick for vice president during the 2008 race, opened up about the funeral during an interview on ‘Good Morning Britain.’”

‘“I was kinda surprised to be publicly disinvited to the funeral.  I think that was an unnecessary step,’ Palin told Piers Morgan. ‘They didn’t have to embarrass me and embarrass others.  That was all weird.  I hope that doesn’t happen to other people.  It’s kind of a gut punch.’”

“McCain, who died last August from brain cancer, reportedly planned his own funeral.”

Well that’s not vain at all is it?

“According to reports, Palin learned she was not invited to the services through an intermediary, not directly from the McCain family.”

Stay classy (yellow) McCain family.

It just goes to show that John McCain had to hold his RINO nose when selecting the straight shooting conservative, Sarah Palin, to run with him in 2008.

In McCain’s book titled “The Restless Wave,” he wrote that he regretted choosing Palin as his running mate instead of his close friend, former Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.

Now here is something John McCain said that I think you can believe!

Lieberman was a democrat, had been Al Gore’s running mate back in 2000.  McCain and Lieberman were establishment “swamp rat” brothers from different mothers.

Then, adding insult to injury, not only did the McCains specifically not invite Sarah Palin to the funeral (as well as President Trump, which was more understandable), it turns out that John McCain called Barack Obama personally to ask him if he would deliver one of the eulogies at his funeral.

So he doesn’t invite the person who ran with him in a presidential election, but he not only invites, but has the guy deliver his eulogy who beat him in the election?

cuckcoo

Cuckoo!  Cuckoo!

Yes my friends…, John McCain definitely showed his true colors to be blue (vs. red)…, and yellow of course.

Singman adds that, “When he died, Palin posted a pair of tweets touting McCain and his record.”

‘“Today we lost an American original,’ she wrote. ‘Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs.  John never took the easy path in life – and through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self.’”

And “later, she wrote: ‘John McCain was my friend. I will remember the good times. My family and I send prayers for Cindy and the McCain family.’”

Kudos to Sarah Palin for taking the high road here, but I hate to tell you that “friend” thing was a one way street.

John McCain used you, then disposed of you.

John McCain was a member of the “establishment,” “swamp rat” fraternity through and through, and neither Sarah Palin nor President Trump were welcome at that party.

Who or what is Howard Stern?

I listened to Howard Stern’s comments to George Stephanopoulos recently, regarding the presidential election of 2016, Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton, and I wonder who or what Howard Stern actually is.

stern 6

He is undoubtedly the “king of all media,” with an estimated daily audience of over 60 million people.

That figure by far, and I mean BY FAR, eclipses anyone else on radio or TV.

So, Howard is obviously an intelligent person.

I’m assuming you need some level of intelligence to be the “king of all media.”

stern 5

That is why some of his views, as far as politics, moral issues, and other things in general, cause me to question him.

Either Howard Stern is really just an idiot in disguise, just another liberal brownnoser in disguise, someone who is just generally very confused, or an intentional fraud.

As you can see…, none of the options are very good.

Sorry, Howard.

stern 1

I have heard Howard say that he “really wanted Hillary to become president,” and that he voted for her.

He also has said that he feels if Hillary had come on his show she may have had a better chance at winning the election, “because people might have gotten to know the real Hillary.”

Here’s a news flash for you Howard; the LAST thing Hillary wants is for anyone to see the REAL Hillary!

The LAST thing.

Her goal…, 365, 24/7, is to NOT let you see the real Hillary.

The Real Hillary is scary.

The real Hillary is Satan’s grandmother!!!

The real Hillary has long forgotten what “the truth” really is.  In her world, “the truth” is whatever is the most advantageous for her, regardless of where it ranks on the truth meter.

stern 7

Someone with Howard’s supposed knowledge and background should be aware of this…, so either he is ignorant to the truth, or he chooses to side with her for some other ungodly reason.

His stance on abortion is also a strange one.

He comes up with all of these reasons for people to support the concept of women being able to have an abortion, but fails to recognize that no matter how many reasons you come up with that are pro-abortion, they can never outweigh the fact that a child’s life is being terminated here…, and he must realize that.  Especially regarding his own state of New York’s love of late-term and even post birth “abortions.”

He has to be smarter than that, doesn’t he?

Howard has also adopted an anti-Trump stance as well, which like most famous liberals, was a “180” from where they stood on him prior to him winning the election.

stern 8

It was no longer acceptable to be associated with Donald Trump in any way, shape or form now that he threatened “the swamp,” and was in opposition of most liberal ideas and agendas in general.

In conclusion…, Howard would like you to view him as a successful maverick…, as an independent voice, and as a voice of reason…, when in fact Howard Stern is just another especially obnoxious, well-conceived, well-marketed phony.

I do.

“Freedom of the Press” does not mean “the press” has the freedom to break the law!

“The swamp,” or “the deep state,” if you prefer calling it that, are always more than happy to help “the cause” by providing otherwise classified information, making available personal and protected information, and leaking anything else that is required to the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

In this case, we have a person, or people, from the IRS, who have provided some of President Trump’s tax return information to The “failing” New York Times.

trump tax 6

According to Hans A. von Spakovsky, a Senior Legal Fellow at The Heritage Foundation, for Fox News, “NY Times publication of Trump tax information violates his legal right to confidentiality.”

trump tax 3

“The New York Times no doubt considers it quite a coup to have obtained and published President Trump’s tax return information from 1985 to 1994.  But doing so violated President Trump’s right under federal law to the confidentiality of his tax returns.”

Just a minor consideration, in their eyes, I’m sure.

trump tax 1

“The Times – which reported on Trump’s businesses…has no more right to Trump’s tax returns than it has to mine or those of any of you reading these words.”

I keep having to remind all of these people that all of these “rights” and “laws” of protection only apply to card carrying members of “the swamp;” conservatives and republicans and all the rest of us peasants operate at the mercy of democrats and “the deep state.”

“Confidentiality, as the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held in 1991 in U.S. v. Richey, is essential to ‘maintaining a workable tax system.’”

Hmmm…, the Ninth Circuit Court?  Isn’t that the court out on the left coast that is constantly trying to legislate from the bench?

I guarantee you that the “U.S. v. Richey” case either protected a liberal or attacked a conservative.

“Taxpayer privacy is ‘fundamental to a tax system that relies on self-reporting’ since it protects ‘sensitive or otherwise personal information,’ said then-Judge (now Supreme Court Justice) Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 1986 in another case when she served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.”

Hmmm…, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia?  The most liberal court in the land; second only to the Ninth Circuit Court we mentioned previously.

RBG of course was referring to the privacy of democrats and liberals at the time, I’m sure, and not conservatives or republicans.

“Regardless of the accuracy or inaccuracy of The New York Times story, tax returns themselves, as well as tax return information such as these IRS transcripts (which are a summary of the tax returns), are protected from disclosure by federal law.”

“Federal law – 26 U.S.C. §7213(a) (1) – makes it a felony for any federal employee to disclose tax returns or “return information.” Infractions are punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine as high as $250,000 under the Alternative Fines Act (18 U.S.C. §3571).”

“According to the newspaper, it did not actually obtain Trump’s tax returns but ‘printouts from his official Internal Revenue Service tax transcripts, with the figures from his federal tax form, the 1040, from someone who had legal access to them.’”

Yes…, THEY (Meaning a liberal IRS confidant; probably Lois Lerner’s brother or sister!) had legal access to them.  But THEY did not have the rights to give others access to them.

“Regardless of the accuracy or inaccuracy of The New York Times story, tax returns themselves, as well as tax return information such as these IRS transcripts (which are a summary of the tax returns), are protected from disclosure by federal law. If the newspaper obtained this information from an employee of the IRS, that employee will be in big trouble if he or she is identified.”

“Could the editors and reporters at the New York Times be prosecuted for publishing this information?”

“Section (a)(3) of the law makes it a felony for ANY PERSON who receives an illegally disclosed tax return or return information to publish that return or that information. But it’s unknown if the bar on publication by a media organization could survive a First Amendment challenge.”

I believe the words “ANY PERSON” would mean “ANY PERSON,” but that’s just me!

“Now the interests of protecting the privacy of taxpayers warrants the opening of a government investigation to find the leaker who provided the Trump tax information to The New York Times.”

YES!  Bravo!

“The IRS and the U.S. Justice Department should investigate how this disclosure happened, find out who did it, and prosecute anyone who violated the law.”

Again…, YES!  Bravissimo!

Why do these people seemingly do whatever they want and always get away with it?  It’s way past time that we start to hold these government weasels accountable.
