MILK is a symbol of racism!

0

Thats right milk is now seen as a symbol of racism. Simply because it helps to fight osteoporosis since the black community doesn’t usually suffer from this disease and it seems that Mother Jones says that since milk is non-beneficial to African Americans and may even help them there must be a deeper reason for the milk ads….

The PC police are really out of control, and they complain that we push fake news?

During the last seven days, suicide bombings have killed at least 70 people in Syria. But at least two of the bombings were conducted by children, and killed at least 40 people. This is just one more reason why there should be a pause on immigration. ISIS trains children.

Obamacare drips with taxes

0

It isn’t just the Main Stream Media invoking fear into Americans about repealing-replacing Obamacare; it’s a local bludgeoning stick as well.

Recently a group paid to publish a gigantic ad (“DON’T TAX my HEALTHCARE”) in a local newspaper that a blind person could not have missed.

Three glaring points of the ad are:

  1. 1. the misleading content is by some illusive group promoting a scare title;
    2. President Trump, by extension all Republicans and specifically Rep. Steve Knight (CA-25) are going to raise your taxes for healthcare and
    3. The message is all about degrading Knight as the November 2018 election approaches. That time frame isn’t long in the land of politics.

The disingenuous ad, with no details, falls in line with the national Left and its propaganda.

Democrats whining about tax increases rings hollow and surpasses hypocrisy.  The absence of disclosure of Obamacare’s many mandated taxes, arises either out of ignorance or convenience.

Whichever it is, the lack is reckless.

AMERICANS for Tax REFORM lists the taxes imposed by Obamacare’s 2,700 pages:

    *This allows the IRS to reject completely-legal tax deductions and other legal tax-minimizing plans just because the IRS deems that the action lacks “substance” and is merely intended to reduce taxes owed. Bill: Reconciliation Act; Pages 108-113.    

It’s important to remember that President Obama promised Obamacare was NOT a tax—that is until his Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr. , went before the United States Supreme Court and claimed that it is a tax (which was needed to get Obamacare passed).

Our local Democrats are angry they didn’t win the seat that Congressman Steve Knight holds.  Be assured the propaganda will know no boundaries as we roll to the November 2018 election.

As I always say, they are so confused that when you give them what they want they are still confused and upset!

Apparently admitting to white privilege actually builds up white privilege, a graduate student suggests in a scholarly article published in “Feminist Philosophy Quarterly.”

In the article, “Unhappy Confessions: The Temptation of Admitting to White Privilege,” author Claire Lockard argues that confessions of white privilege or racism are “pleasurable to enact but ultimately reinforce white people’s feelings of goodness and allow them to avoid addressing this racism.”

Journalists, stop pushing petty political squabbles. Focus on the REAL war… radical Islamic terror!

Journalism, Activism
Journalism, Activism

Journalism in America is at an all time low.  Almost to the point of saying it is dead. Why? I say, because the majority of media has been nothing but biased, agenda-based media since Donald Trump became President.

It seems to have started when a President who was evil and manipulative with a global agenda occupied the White House. The mainstream media wore rose-colored glasses throughout his presidency. Journalists are supposed to be unbiased, fact-based reporters, not ones pushing the same agenda that the globalist President had.

The United States now has a President whose focus is putting his country back to work, along with bringing back law and order and a fight against radical Islam.  But the media is so hell bent on trying to take down President Trump that they are grasping at straws.

They are still trying to prove, along with the Democrats, that Russia was involved in elections and hacking. Yet there is no evidence to support those claims.

They are also focusing on President Trump’s tax returns. MSNBC host Rachel Maddow mysteriously acquired a copy of his 2005 return and immediately shared with the world. If I am not mistaken, isn’t that illegal? A felony to be exact?!?

While the liberal mainstream media continues to grasp at straws, the world around them is in chaos.  Radical Islam is at an all-time high.  Syria is falling apart. Refugees are entering America with no vetting because liberal judges are working to block President Trump’s terrorism travel ban.  With that, the liberal mainstream media continues to lie to the public and call it what it’s not… a Muslim ban.  There is so much that is going on in the world yet people are clueless because journalists aren’t reporting the real news anymore.

Let me just remind the American people who we are at war with.  We are at war with radical Islam. This war was not declared by us. It was declared when an act of radical Islamic terror struck the Twin Towers in New York on 9/11 murdering over 3,000 people. Theirs is an ideology of hate whose desire is global domination and submission.

I have never heard Russia chanting death to America or killing Americans just for being Americans.  Sure, keep an eye on Russia. But they are not the threat that is at your doorstep. Radical Islam is.

Fellow Americans, stay alert and don’t let fake news distract you from what is going on around you.

Truth through Democrat glasses

0

The “FAKE NEWS” makers have ramped themselves up 3000 fold!

“Trump signed order to deport all illegals”

“Trump signs order to ban Muslims from coming to the US”

“Trump purges all info about Obama from White House Web site”

“The White House Climate Change Website was purged”

“Spike in Transgender Suicide Rates because of Trumps election”

“Trump threatens to invade Mexico”

“Trump fires all AG’s”… and soooo many more!

You guys all remember a character known as Chicken Little? Chicken Little had a reputation for being crazy and causing a panic because he was always yelling “the sky is falling.” And how about the boy who cried wolf? After a while it fell on deaf ears.

Democrats have, for years, created a fake narrative that the Right-conservative-Republicans hate women, blacks, Hispanics, immigrants, clean air, clean water and so many more that I can’t list them all. Everything was the “War on __________.“ Just fill in the blank with the Democrat irritant of the month.

Democrats have learned nothing from their November 2016 election loss. They still believe it was the stupid, the uniformed, or even “those people” in the middle of the country who don’t get real news and have guns and read the bible who are at fault for their loss.

The problem is the Democrats see themselves as all-knowing, all-seeing, smarter than you, better than you, and knowing more than God. They know YOU are the problem!

When you reach the level where you cannot be taught, you can’t see where your issues are, and you even refuse to believe there is a problem, believe me… there’s a problem!

Nancy Pelosi would have no part believing the loss was because of Democrats or their message and what they did to this country over the last 8 years. She said it was because of the Russians, and “low knowledge” voters and people who didn’t understand their message. The Democrats did nothing wrong. Even good friends of mine who I have had great relationships with over the years would not take any responsibility for their party’s faults. Sorry, but you are the problem! You are Dangerous.

Back to the fake news headlines.

“Trump signed order to deport all illegals”

“Trump signs order to ban Muslims from coming to the US”

Trump didn’t sign an order to deport all illegals. The order was to arrest and deport those who committed felonies or were wanted on felony charges. And that’s soooo bad?! Then the total Muslim ban that wasn’t and still isn’t! Democrats had no problem when Oblamo did it, but are completely against it when Trump does it. How does that make sense?

“Trump purges all info about Obama from White House Web site”

Purging of information from the White House website happens whenever the presidency changes. ALL administrations do it. It isn’t a Trump conspiracy. All of Mr. Obama’s White House legacy and propaganda can be found on the new website, White House Obama.

“Spike in Transgender Suicide Rates because of Trumps election”

I’m glad to report that the CDC has found NO spike in transgender suicides because of Trump’s election. I’m not making light of this, but calling out how sick and how low those on the Left will go to instill fear into the LGBTQ community. Shame on you!

“Trump threatens to invade Mexico”

Trump wants to invade Mexico? That twisted comment from the Left doesn’t even deserve a comment.

“Trump fires all AG’s”

The best one of all, “Trump fires all AG’s.” WOW! The Democrats are trying to become a class “A” fearmongering group. And they are almost there. Yes, he asked the last of them to leave and resign. Unlike every other president before him who asked them all to leave the day they took office. That’s right people. ALL presidents clean house when they come into office. So I guess it’s only wrong when the guy you hate, who plays for the team you hate, does it.

Democrats’ true colors are shining, and shining brightly. The level of hate and fear they are spewing is very dangerous for this country.

They are setting up a 2 tier system, the right and the wrong. They see themselves as always right and Conservatives as always wrong. And there is no discussing it with them. They fight everything we stand for… just because. Even when President Trump, during the Joint Session address to Congress, mentioned ideas and issues they want and have wanted, they couldn’t be bothered to clap for fear of looking like they may agree with something he said! Chuck Schumer said that there was nothing in the speech he could agree with. I guess he doesn’t want safer streets, free childcare for working mothers, and safer schools for kids? Hypocrites! Just hypocrites.

Schumer also said that he would only come along side Trump if Trump governed like a Democrat. This is why I tell you that they are blind and dangerous.

Hey Democrats, your people were voted out! Your process was voted out. Even in the places Hillary won, Republicans won governorships and legislative houses! The only place you maintained real control was in the Looney bin known as California, where the craziest legislation still gets passed and continues to ruin the state.

I don’t know what kind of crack or dope you’re smoking or what kind of glasses you’re looking through, but you need to get a grip on reality. Your marches are turning off your base. Your fake news is turning off your base. And you can’t even see the writing on the wall through your rose-colored ideology.

As I like to say now… Long live Nancy Pelosi! Keep fighting the way you do and the Republicans will be in power for MANY years to come. I’m good with that.

For continuously funding terror, I call on Israeli and American leadership to take Obama to ICC

0

Enough is enough, Barak Obama in repeated offenses has funded terrorism, by means of sending billions to Iran regime who are the head of radical Islam as well as during his last days as President attempted to send millions to the Palestinian Authority. (State Department currently investigating if PA received the funds.)

It’s bad enough that he supports a 2-state solution which will put Israeli lives at risk, but now this?  It is not the first time he has funded terror or tampered with Israel.  He has committed many offenses that potentially could harm our people unpunished.

Take the Iran deal for instance, history shows Iran is the head of terror going back to bombing Marine barracks in the early 80’s, as well as incitement and terror to Israelis.  Iran also helps fund small terror proxies like Hamas and Hezbollah to carry out their Radical Islamic terror.  Yet there is still secret information on this deal that is not known to the public except the laxed restrictions and billions of dollars being sent to the regime.  Even as we speak Iran tests their missiles with “death to Israel” written in Hebrew on them. And Obama had a problem with Prime Minister Netanyahu speaking on behalf and the safety of the Israeli citizens to rethink this dangerous deal.

We can also go back to Israel’s elections.  Obama sent money to a campaign to stop Prime Minister Netanyahu from keeping the Prime Minister position.  Why was there no action taken for this?  Obama and the Democrats demand accountability for President Trump and Russia even though there was no meddling involved yet Obama goes unpunished?

During the war with Hamas, Obama urged Israel to restrain while 3 teens were kidnapped and killed and rockets were flying to civilian populations?  What kind of an ally would say to refrain from destroying the enemy… something you do in war!  Toward the end of Obama’s presidency, the vote on settlements was a loss for Israel due to the fact that Obama’s representative abstained from voting. As a result, Israel was requested to cease with the loss of the resolution 14-0 vote.  Though these two offenses really are not punishable it shows that he is not a friend to Israel.

And the straw that broke the camel’s back… why, on exactly the last minute of Obama’s term, did he authorize the transfer of $200 million of taxpayer money to the Palestinians?  Let’s be frank, while Hamas is in control, you know darn well that this particular money will go straight to Hamas and they will use it on Israelis with terror attacks.  Hamas like Iran, has only one thing set in their minds to do, the destruction of Israel.  While terror controls the Palestinian people that is where the money will go and Barak Obama is well aware of this and should be held accountable.

I call on Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, the Knesset as well as the American government and anyone that can make this happen to take Barack Hussein Obama to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and be tried for funding terrorism and endangering the lives of the entire nation of Israeli.

Military still fighting PC Virus

The Air Force fears that words like boy, girl, colonial and blacklist might offend people, according to an email sent to Airmen at Joint Base San Antonio.

An outraged Airman sent me a copy of the email – as evidence the military is still infected with Obama-era political correctness.

The email included an attachment that listed a number of words and phrases that might be construed as offensive.

Now, to be fair there were some legitimately offensive and racially charged words and phrases on the list. But also included on the list were the words boy and girl.

The email was written by a senior Air Force leader and was sent to an untold number of personnel at Lackland Air Force Base.

Airmen were advised to study a list of words and phrases that “may be construed offensive.”

Here’s a partial list of the dubious words and phrases deemed troublesome by the Air Force..

Muslims
Muslims

I gathered 20 disturbing statistical findings on Muslims. Here are just five of the statistics:

More than 60 million Muslims have a favorable view of ISIS

81% of Muslims support ISIS ideology

700 million Muslims want Islamic Law; 266 million want it forced on Everyone in the world

Sweden: Muslim Migrants are responsible for 95% of all crimes

Germany: Muslim migrants committed 142,500 crimes in first six months of 2016 — 780 every day

Italy: More immigrants has meant more crime. The study found that among Italian citizens there are 4.3 convicted criminals per 1000; for legal immigrants the rate is double; and among illegal immigrants the crime rate soared to more than 50 percent.

America: Muslims dominate in immigration growth in a record high of 42.4M immigrants to America.

ISIS banned Nike this week…

Nike Hijab Sports Line

ISIS banned Nike this week, declaring all Nike products haram (evil). This poster was placed on shops that sell clothing and shoes.

ISIS banned Nike
ISIS banned Nike

They did this because they say Nike is the goddess of victory in Greek mythology, which makes the victory sign haram.

ISIS follows the interpretation of Islam known as Wahhabism, the official religion in Saudi Arabia, that deems any links to pre-Islamic culture, religion or history as apostasy.

But, when I told my husband about the ban, my husband said, “Nike is a really nasty word for f*ck in Arabic”. (please excuse my language, I’m just passing info along).

So, hmmm, did they ban it for the goddess of victory, or because it’s a word for f*ck? Either way, stupid and ignorant, as Islam is.

Editors note: Even though Nike just released their new “Hijab line”!

Contrast: Women’s Day in the Middle East

Middle East Womens Day Roses, video still

I heard that many schools in America had to close on Wednesday because female teachers took the day off to “protest”. This caused many women to lose money to pay for baby sitters or stay home with the kids and lose income.

To me, that is not what Women’s Day was created for.

In Egypt, women who work were given flowers by their co-workers to show they are appreciated.

In Aleppo, Syria, female medics were given flowers and cake, for the same reason.

When I was still living in America, my local community did “Women in the Arts Week” in honor of Women’s Day and to showcase talented women who paved the way for other artists to succeed.

One year several women’s groups got together to celebrate Women’s Day, but also created events throughout the whole month of March to showcase successful women.

This women’s day protest in America this year seems mean spirited to me, and not why Women’s Day was created.

Did you see what Trump did to black colleges?

Trump-Signs-HBCU-Assistance

Last Monday, President Trump met with 64 representatives of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), and even though the Liberal media seemed more focused on how senior adviser Kellyanne Conway sat on the couch, this meeting in the Oval Office reflects President Trump’s desire to make those institutions a priority.

Vice President Mike Pence stated to the HBCU:

“You deserve far more credit than you get, and know that beginning today, this administration is committed to making sure that our historically black colleges and universities get the credit and the attention they deserve,”

President Trump’s executive orders will shift the handling of the federal program that helps HBCU to the White House. This will promote a direct partnership between the HBCU and government agencies which in turn will favor the creation of jobs.

Hopefully, this will help to strengthen the relationship between the HBCU and the White House which was weakened by the previous administration since it had a “low regard” for those institutions.

During the Obama’s presidency:

Total grants from the Department of Education dropped from more than $742 million in 2010 to $680 million in 2012.

Grants and research awards from federal agencies to HBCUs for S.T.E.M. development decreased from $661 million in 2010 to $573 million in 2011.

This decrease in federal grant funding and:

changes in the Parent PLUS Loan Program have cost black colleges more than $300 million in the last two years, one of the worst stretches in history for public HBCU support.

It is shameful most people only know that at this meeting Kellyanne Conway was kneeling on the couch, instead of the positive outcomes from the meeting and the benefits to HBCU’s.

Many people criticize the Trump Administration for not supporting minorities, but it is finally answering the requests made to the Obama Administration in 2013 by Earl S. Richardson, President Emeritus of Morgan State University, and other black college experts:

“…For the White House Initiative on HBCUs to have a direct report to the president, either by the director of the occupying a deputy secretary position or by requiring federal agencies to report on their engagement and grant awarding to black colleges to that position…”

The Establishment

Donald Trump, Thumbs Up, No tie casual suit, Red hat, Make America Great Again, MAGA
Donald Trump, Thumbs Up, No tie casual suit, Red hat, Make America Great Again, MAGA

In the Gospel of Mark, in the 3rd chapter there is a story shared that confirms that even back in the early days of our calendar there was a  separation or divisiveness of those in the establishment and the people.

In the chapter, the story starts off that there was a man who had a shriveled hand. Now I am not sure how that would actually look, but it can’t be pretty and for the man himself it must have been heart wrenching to see it every day and feel that there was nothing that could be done… but today, he caught the attention of Jesus Christ.

Jesus knew that the establishment, i.e., the Pharisees and those who considered themselves spiritual rulers were right there and if there was one thing that irritated him more was the fact that these men made the Sabbath a burden to the people and that nothing should be done on that day… even if it meant healing a man’s hand and giving him some dignity…

Jesus looked at the “establishment” those men and asked a simple question… “Which is better to do today… good or to do evil… which is more right… to save a life, or to kill”?

The establishment couldn’t respond.

So, Jesus, disgusted with them looked and then said to the man, “Stretch out your hand”… Now, can you imagine….what an amazing feeling for this man… the anticipation of being healed, made whole, and so the man stretched out his hand and it was completely restored…

Today, we see a change in our society where our new President’s desire is to restore our country back to its original roots… the new President, Donald Trump is interested in seeing an America that he grew up in… and America that was unified against the enemy, that pride and dignity were in the hearts of men and women at home, within the responsibilities of their jobs and paychecks were part of the process where futures could be planned, education could be afforded and retirement would be enjoyed…

But the establishment would rather keep the people in oppression… just like the Pharisees did with the man and his shriveled hand… they want to see the men, women and children subject to them rather than the freedoms and rights that were designed to help people thrive…

The man with the shriveled hand? Don’t know much about him after that occurrence, but it had to be clear, in his heart, that the Sabbath, a day the establishment wanted to keep him from being healed, became a day he discovered the Sabbath’s beauty.

The people who witnessed this miracle also recognized the true meaning of the Sabbath… and that irritated the establishment even more…

No different today… President Trump is asking the same question… “Is it better to protect society… or better to neglect the people”?

He is choosing protection.

With each day that offers the opportunity for security, the establishment becomes more irritated by it and the love President Trump has for this country and the people who legally here…

So, I ask you… which is better… prosperity or poverty… which are you more inclined to desire… security of life or the possibilities of danger….

It’s time to choose.

Democrats: Sessions must resign

0
Attorney General Jeff Sessions
Attorney General Jeff Sessions

This Thursday Attorney General Jeff Sessions decided to recuse himself from any potential investigation concerning Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. His decision came after the barrage of controversy around his meetings with Russian ambassador. However, many Democrat representatives are not satisfied and are asking for Session’s resignation.

During his confirmation:

Al Franken, D-Minnesota, asked Sessions what he would do if he learned that “anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign communicated with the Russian government in the course of this campaign.”

He answered that:

“I’m not aware of any of those activities. … I did not have communications with the Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.”

Days later, Sessions denied again that he has contacted “any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election”.

Although it turned out that Sessions met the Russian ambassador twice, the AG affirmed that “nothing improper happened” and that he believed that he was asked about any discussion pertaining to the Trump campaign, not about meetings in his job function as a senator.

As expected, Democrats are suspicious of the meeting and do not think that recusing himself is good enough.

“Attorney General Sessions’ narrow recusal and his sorry attempt to explain away his perjury are totally inadequate,” Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement.

Many are asking for a special prosecutors to investigate the Russian intrusion and some even want Sessions to resign arguing that he purposely misled the committee.

“The cover-up may be as bad or worse as the crime,’ Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal said on MSNBC after Sessions’ announcement. “And the American people deserve the whole truth here.”

Although Democrats think that Sessions’ meetings are suspicious, it is common for senators to meet with foreign officials.

Republican legislators pointed out that there is no proof that Sessions tried to mislead Congress during his confirmation and this accusation seems the product of the Democrat’s desire to connect Trump’s presidential campaign with Russian officials.

White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that:

“This is the latest attack against the Trump administration by partisan Democrats. General Sessions met with the ambassador in an official capacity as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, which is entirely consistent with his testimony.”

Is the Democrat’s request for the General Attorney’s resignation justified or is it a misunderstanding blown out of proportion for political purposes?

Syria: U.S. aids liberation of Palmyra from ISIS

ISIS, Palmyra, Kids, Teen, Executioners, Video Still

ISIS first captured the ancient city of Palmyra, Syria in May of 2015. Palmyra is a treasured archeological site listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

At that time, in 2015, ISIS rounded up captured Syrian Army members who had been defending the city and the Islamic State had their “Caliphate Cubs” execute the army members.

ISIS forced the townspeople into the ancient amphitheater to witness the executions, which was also a message to the town to not disobey the Islamic Laws which were immediately put in place.

At that time, ISIS also kidnapped the head of antiquities of Palmyra, Khaled Assad, an 82-yr old archeologist who had been in charge of the ancient site for many years. ISIS tortured him for 30 days, trying to get him to reveal where Palmyra’s valuable treasures from the museum were hidden.

Khaled Assad had hidden the treasures when word came that ISIS was heading towards Palmyra. But even after weeks of torture, the 82-yr old Assad did not give up the treasures, so ISIS beheaded him in front of the townspeople and then hung his headless, tortured body on a giant ancient column in the city center for weeks, for all the town to see.

Assad was well-known and beloved by the townspeople, so this was a horrific event for them to witness.

From that time on, ISIS began blowing up the archeological sites and bludgeoning precious statues. Many are now completely destroyed, gone forever.

For two years, Palmyra exchanged hands four times, with the Syrian Army recapturing Palmyra from ISIS, only to lose it soon afterwards. Each time, ISIS brought in more tanks and more advanced weapons.

During this period, the Syrian Army was spread very thin, fighting more than ten different terrorist groups inside Syria, who had placed themselves in various regions throughout Syria–for the specific purpose of making it difficult for the Syrian Army to be everywhere at once.

On December 13, 2016, between 4,000 – 5,000 Islamic State fighters assaulted the ancient city of Palmyra from several flanks, causing the Syrian Army to withdraw to more defensible positions.

Approximately 1,000 Syrian Army soldiers were stationed at Palmyra — outnumbered by ISIS by at least 4-1.

During this battle, Palmyra was lost to ISIS once again, and in addition to capturing Palmyra, ISIS also seized the Syrian military’s airbase, the Hayyan gas field and al-Dawa village.

On December 16, 2016, ISIS unleashed several suicide bombers at the Syrian Army’s defenses along the two main roads to Palmyra. The massive explosions could be heard many miles away.

Following the suicide bombings, ISIS then stormed Syrian Army positions, resulting in fighting that lasted days. The Syrian Army’s paratrooper division was then deployed. The paratroopers parachuted into the western outskirts of the airbase after the Palmyra-Homs Road was closed due to the security threat posed by ISIS.

ISIS was driven back and at least 70 ISIS members were killed.

Meanwhile, the Russian Air Force carried out sorties throughout the day, thus enabling the Syrian Army to further drive back ISIS forces, killing at least 35 more militants before securing the airbase.

On December 18, the Syrian Army conducted a large-scale cleansing operation around the airbase and then expanded the buffer-zone around the perimeters. The Syrian Army was then able to liberate the city of Palmyra from ISIS.

Yet once again, ISIS rallied and entered Palmyra with more tanks and weapons and recaptured Palmyra and the airbase in January. When ISIS took the city in January, they beheaded twelve townspeople, some of whom were teachers.

Eight others were shot, four were Syrian Army members. Some of the executions took place at the Roman amphitheater in front of the townspeople.

Now, during the last few weeks of February, there has been daily fighting between the Syrian Army and ISIS, and with the help of Russian air strikes, progress was being made. But the airbase was under continued heavy attacks and much of the fighting took place there, thus hindering the progress of recapturing Palmyra from ISIS.

With the backing of the Russian Air Force this last week, the Syrian Army was able to recapture the Palmyra airbase. The Russian Air Force destroyed several of the Islamic State’s tanks at the airbase.

During the ground fighting in the city, a Russian soldier was critically injured when an IED blew up. Russian IED experts have announced that ISIS has planted IEDs throughout the city and in the archaeological sites.

According to a Russian military spokesperson, they received information about a very large amount of explosives being moved to Palmyra from the countryside and that ISIS was planning to further destroy the World Cultural Heritage sites.

For the very first time, in order to aid the Syrian Army in liberating Palmyra from ISIS, Russian and U.S. air forces coordinated an attack against the Islamic State’s weapons and tank supply route that were also transporting explosives.

U.S. warplanes conducted several air strikes over the eastern countryside of Palmyra and successfully hit ISIS on the Palmyra-Sukkana Road, the Islamic State’s main supply route. These U.S airstrikes helped the Syrian Army and Russian military retake the city by cutting off ISIS weapons, explosives and tanks.

As of March 3, 2017, Palmyra was completely liberated from ISIS.

Here is why I think Obama has wiretapped President Trump

0

President Trump has accused Barack Obama of wiretapping, since the Democrats have been wanting to investigate possible meetings and passing of information with the Russians.  Now, while the Democrats are laughing about it, let me remind you of the history of Obama, then ask yourself, is it really that far fetched?

You can go back before his presidency when he was in college smoking marijuana, and later on an attendee at Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church (who obviously preached hate towards America, and the American people.)  Obama had radical views towards America’s true ally in the middle east… Israel.  During his Presidency, he put together the worst deal in the history of the world.  The Iran nuke deal as I call it.  Not only easing sanctions for a country who has broken nuclear deals in the past, but also funding Iran with over a hundred billion dollars worth of American taxpayer money.  With all the small terror proxies that fall under Iran, you know that is where the money has gone.  Look at the statistics. Since this deal, radical Islam has risen throughout the world.  If Obama, with no regret or guilt, is willing and able to fund radical Islamic terror, is it really far-fetched that he would wiretap his successor, who is the complete opposite of his globalism agenda?

The United States has been turned upside-down the past years under Obama, with the economy trillions in debt and racial tensions at an all time high.  Even the fact that Obama wanted Muslim refugees. Not Christian refugees or others. But he wanted Muslim refugees brought into America with no security vetting process, putting American lives at risk.

It was also published that Obama has indeed wiretapped world leaders.  Facts like this one can not be ignored.  The United States government needs to stop trying to find something on President Trump, who only wants safety for Americans and a better economy, and focus on finding out the truth from Obama himself. And if proven guilty, he should go to prison.

Sadly, I feel if Obama could get away with funding terror, he can surely get away with wiretapping U.S. elections.

Democrats show true colors

Suddenly, after 8 years, Democrats have found the Constitution!

All of a sudden, Democrats have found fiscal accountability, conservative spending principles, a conscious, AND the Constitution?  NOT!

They are quick to point fingers at all the transgressions Mr. Trump may have been involved in. With NO proof to back ANY of their accusations, they want special prosecutors, resignations and firings, all from actions they CLAIM happened over that last 90 days.

Interesting. With ALL the scams, scandals, and unconstitutional actions committed against the American people by the last administration, NO Dems could be found stating even one disapproving or accusatory word against the Obama Administration or Clinton machine. Are they only sworn to enforce the Constitution on the opposition party?

Let’s start with Eric Holder, the Teflon Don of the DOJ. In 2012 not only was Eric Holder known for being the first African American Attorney General, he also became the first US AG in American history to be held in contempt of Congress on both civil and criminal grounds. The FIRST! Must feel good to have all those firsts!

Congress voted 255 to 67 against him. Nancy Pelosi and 16 other Dems walked out in protest. They said it was politically motivated. How rich coming from them. EX-President Oblamo claimed executive privilege so as not to have to administer the crushing blow against the AG who had Oblamo’s back.

Usually, in a situation like that, the President would have asked someone in his admin to resign or simply outright fire him. Oblamo refused and it was left to the DOJ to do it. Think about that. The DOJ, run by Mr. Holder and his boss Mr. Oblamo was supposed to take action AGAINST Mr. Holder? I think not. Surprised?

Mr. Holder refused to call the Ft. Hood massacre an act of terror by an Islamic extremist even though the soldier had cards and identified as a soldier of Allah! Instead they called it workplace violence. Really!

In reference to these wire taps that don’t happen and ALL the noise about how Trump stifles and hurts the media, it was Eric Holder’s DOJ under his boss Heir Oblamo that collected phone records and information on many individual reporters. They were specifically caught spying on the Associated Press and Fox News. Fox was being watched because they had received classified information from a CIA whistleblower. Hmmmm… double standard?

Eric Holder also claimed he was above the Supreme Court by declaring that the second amendment only guaranteed gun access to the military. The Supreme Court has ruled on several occasions that that is not the case. BUT who was going to stop Holder? His boss?

Mr. Holder seemed to be so concerned about voter suppression and intimidation that he forgot about the “white people.” That’s right. He allowed the NEW Black Panther Party thugs at voter polls on Election Day with clubs, yelling racial slurs at the white folks and even chasing them away. They were caught on tape doing it! But it seemed that white voter suppression under the Obama/Holder so-called Justice Department was just fine.

The DOJ decided that the Constitution applied to any terrorist caught by American military anywhere in the world with the exception of being caught on the battlefield in the act of aggression against Americans soldiers. WOW! Even the Supreme Court says that’s not true. The Constitution only applies to those on American soil. Once AGAIN Mr. Holder held himself higher than the Supreme Court and Boss Oblamo supported him.

Everyone is up in arms about President Trump’s picks for his cabinet. Friends, associates, millionaires. But the precedent was set by Mr. Oblamo! Ex-President Obama carefully chose people who were fundraisers and bundlers to run the DOJ! Hello! That’s OK how? Especially if you have issues with Trump’s choices. Eric Holder was one of the BIG BUNDLERS for Oblamo along with ‘Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli, Deputy Associate Attorney General Karol Mason, and Associate Attorney General Tony West.’. But, I guess when the Dems do it, its fine!

Mr. Holder charged many journalists who simply re-posted articles from major newspapers about information leaked detailing who America was spying on! NOW Democrats say leaks are OK and good!

I don’t want to make this whole article about Eric Holder, So Google these and see for yourself what he got away with.

  • Jon Corzine and MF Global Connection
  • DOJ Hiring Discrimination (only Liberals welcome)
  • Lying to Congress
  • NSA director lied about collecting data on Americans, not action by Holder
  • War on DOJ Whistleblowers, (seems the Dems feel whistleblowers are NOW a protected class).
  • Iranian Nuke deal, we were lied to, cover ups and unconstitutional
  • DOJ protected rogue IRS agents who targeted conservative organizations
  • OBLAMO and the DOI (department of Injustice) went out of their way to protect their team members at any cost even to the American people!

Loretta Lynch was no peach either. She hated the law as much as Oblamo and Holder did! Let’s not forget, she met with the powerful husband (former president) of someone she was investigating and didn’t recuse herself? No comments by Dems, except that they just take her at her word. Must be OK!

Let’s not forget FBI Directory Mr. Comey who himself need investigation after allowing so many transgressions and irregularities in the investigation of Hillary Clinton. I sat and spoke at LENGTH with a former FBI agent on the process that takes place in these investigations. Almost NONE were followed in Clinton’s case.

For example, all laptops involved in the investigation are missing or have been government wiped. Comey came out and stated in his comments that Mrs. Clinton lied in her testimony to Congress based on the testimony she gave to the FBI. A Lie is a LIE! Mrs. Clinton would not allow the FBI to take written notes and had all the FBI agents sign a privacy agreement. Think about that one. FBI agents questioning a suspect were told they basically couldn’t use any of the information they mentally gathered!

As if that weren’t bad enough, the FBI almost always uses a Grand Jury, especially in cases like Clinton’s. But one wasn’t used. WHY? Comey never said she wasn’t guilty. He said no prosecutor would take it on! But no cries for justice from a Dem.

I find it soooo hypocritical that with all the scandals, almost scandals, and unconstitutional acts carried out by the prior Administration, there wasn’t even ONE call from the Dems for justice. Not one!

The only justice the Dems kept calling for was to protect terrorists, illegal immigrants, refugees, and our foreign enemies.

Meanwhile, for 8 years, our vets, American taxpayers, businesses, and the Constitution where trampled on and the actions were cheered on by the Democrat Socialist Liberal party… Long Live Nancy Pelosi!

That Russian Ambassador gets around!

0

It should already be obvious that the fake media firestorm over Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ meetings last year with the Russian ambassador is nothing more than the Democrat Media Complex — led by Obama’s shadow government — trying to take down a key member of the Trump administration. Their game is to find some minor issue (Sessions could have been more forthcoming during his confirmation hearing) and turn it into a major impeachment-worthy scandal.

It’s a tried and true strategy that Democrats and their friends in the media were able to pull off with amazing success during the Bush years. But the playing field is completely different in 2017 — more people are on to their games, and we have a president who loves to fight. President Trump doesn’t crouch in a defensive posture — he goes on the offense. Good luck with that, Dems.
