Power Point Presentation
The Sheriff’s and the Constitution

When we look at the Office of the Sheriff, combined with the historical powers held by that office, he stands as the upholder, defender, protector and servant to the liberties of the people within the county.  In addition to upholding the law, the sheriff is also charged with upholding the supreme law, the Constitution. The law enforcement powers held by the sheriff supersede those of any agent, officer, elected official or employee from any level of government when in the jurisdiction of the county.  The vertical separation of powers in the Constitution makes it clear that the power of the sheriff even supersedes the powers of the President.  Furthermore, it is this responsibility that grants a Sheriff the Constitutional authority to check and balance all levels of government within the jurisdiction of the County.  And other peace officers, including police officers and others with arrest powers, join with the Sheriff and deputies,  as Constitutional Guards, with one and the same mission:  to protect life, liberty and property.

Who better could you pick for the secretary of Defense?

This article is slightly amended and reprinted, with permission, from The Strategy Bridge
America knows Gen. James Mattis as a character, Mad Dog Mattis, the font of funny quotes and Chuck Norris-caliber memes. Those of us who served with him know that he is a caring, erudite, warfighting general. We also know that there is a reason he uses the call-sign Chaos: he is a lifelong student of his profession, a devotee of maneuver warfare and Sun Tzu, the sort of guy who wants to win without fighting—to cause chaos among those he would oppose.   To Marines, he is the finest of our tribal elders. The rest of the world, very soon, will know how truly gifted he is. Our friends and allies will be happy he is our new secretary of war; our enemies will soon wish he weren’t.

Trump to pick Rep. McMorris Rodgers for Interior secretary

President-elect Donald TrumpDONALD TRUMP abroad is expected to name Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) to lead the Interior Department, a source close to the transition team told The Hill Friday.
 Trump will tap McMorris-Rodgers, a five-term Republican who represents eastern Washington and is the chair of the House GOP Conference, to lead the department. The New York Times first reported the news.  McMorris Rodgers is a vice chair of Trump’s transition team and the highest-ranking woman in GOP leadership. She formally met with Trump on Nov. 20. Her office declined to comment Friday.

If confirmed by the Senate, McMorris Rodgers would lead the 70,000-employee, $12 billion Interior Department, which manages federal lands for both preservation and energy and mineral development, controls offshore drilling and oversees national parks.  She would be Trump’s point person on public lands energy development, something Trump said he wants to expand as president.   Trump opposes the Obama administration’s moratorium on coal leasing on federal lands and, in a September speech, proposed a “top-down review of all anti-coal regulations issued by the Obama administration,” an effort that would include the Interior Department.

 Trump’s transition website said he “will encourage the production of [fossil fuels] by opening onshore and offshore leasing on federal lands and waters.” Trump, though, has professed a view of federal land ownership that is relatively moderate compared to some conservatives.

Jill Stein, Hillary and the Green Party are losing on every front with their recount

REVEALED: Michigan Recount Uncovers Serious Voter Fraud in Detroit- VOTES COUNTED UP TO 6 TIMES

(Gateway Pundit) – More bad news for Democrats

Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s Michigan recount unintentionally exposed this major voting fraud scandal.

In Detroit, one of the chief ways they engage in voter fraud is to count the same ballot MULTIPLE times. This is just ONE way. They also do some shady stuff with absentee ballots etc.

Once they started the Michigan recount in earnest, and knowing he would be exposed, the Detroit City Clerk Daniel Baxter all of a sudden started claiming that the optical scanners which read the paper ballots did not work the day of the election. Baxter blamed the discrepancies on decade-old voting machines. That is his cover story. Nothing like this was mentioned until he realized their voting fraud scheme would be detected.

Baxter’s claim is that, when trying to push the ballots through the readers, the ballots would be stuck and they’d have to push them through again thus ‘ACCIDENTALLY’ resulting in a double count. He says the poll workers sometimes ‘FORGET’ to adjust the machine count and instead let the ballot count twice.  Read on, check out Sealed box 306 votes open count 50?

Trump announces selection of EPA antagonist to lead agency

Trump announces selection of EPA antagonist to lead agencyBY TIMOTHY CAMA
President-elect Donald Trump confirmed Thursday morning that he has chosen Oklahoma’s Republican attorney general, Scott Pruitt, a frequent antagonist of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), to lead the agency.  Calling him “one of the country’s top attorneys general,” Trump said in a statement that Pruitt would carry out his mission of cracking down on what he sees as a job-killing, anti-energy agenda at the EPA, while ensuring that the agency protects the nation’s clean air and water.
“For too long, the Environmental Protection Agency has spent taxpayer dollars on an out-of-control anti-energy agenda that has destroyed millions of jobs, while also undermining our incredible farmers and many other businesses and industries at every turn,” Trump said.  “As my EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, the highly respected attorney general from the state of Oklahoma, will reverse this trend and restore the EPA’s essential mission of keeping our air and our water clean and safe,” he continued.
Trump and Pruitt agree with the need to “rescind all job-destroying executive actions,” they said in the statement.  The Hill -Read On>>>>>

Kelly Sounds like great pick for National Security at the borders but we need Kobach for Internal Immigration issues

Why Trump picked a retired general for Homeland Security

Why Trump picked a retired general for Homeland SecurityBy choosing former Marine Gen. John Kelly over Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach — a move confirmed to The Hill Wednesday by a high-level transition source — Trump gains a nominee with extensive experience on the southern border but with less of a penchant for controversy.  While liberal groups are wary of the pick, they were prepared to go on the warpath against immigration hard-liner Kobach, who still might be nominated to be Kelly’s deputy.  As head of the sprawling department, Kelly will be at the forefront of Trump’s efforts to build a wall along the border with Mexico and round up undocumented immigrants.
The tough-talking general will also be responsible for turning some of Trump’s more controversial anti-terrorism proposals, like a Muslim registry or a ban on Muslim immigration, into reality.  Conservative immigration groups remain wary of Kelly — something that could end up helping him in a Senate confirmation battle if it causes lawmakers to see him as a moderate.  Hard-liners praise Kelly for his military expertise and trust he’ll build a powerful barrier along the southern border. But they worry he won’t crack down hard enough on undocumented workers.    THE HILL – REad On>>>>>


Retired Marine Gen. John F. Kelly picked to head Department of Homeland Security

December 7 at 12:24 PM
President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. John F. Kelly to run the Department of Homeland Security, turning to a blunt-spoken border security hawk who clashed with the Obama administration over women in combat and plans to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, according to people familiar with the decision.
Kelly, who retired in February as chief of U.S. Southern Command, would inherit a massive and often troubled department responsible for overseeing perhaps the most controversial part of Trump’s agenda: his proposed crackdown on illegal immigration. DHS is the third-largest Cabinet department, with more than 240,000 employees who do everything from fight terrorism to protect the president and enforce immigration laws.
Kelly, 66, is a widely respected military officer who served for more than 40 years, and he is not expected to face difficulty winning Senate confirmation. Trump’s team was drawn to him because of his Southwest border expertise, people familiar with the transition said. Like the president-elect, Kelly has sounded the alarm about drugs, terrorism and other cross-border threats he sees as emanating from Mexico and Central and South America.

Yet Kelly’s nomination could raise questions about what critics see as Trump’s tendency to surround himself with too many military figures. Trump has also selected retired Marine Gen. James N. Mattis for defense secretary and retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn as national security adviser, while retired Army Gen. David H. Petraeus is under consideration for secretary of state.  WASHINGTONPOST – Read On>>>>

BREAKING: Jill Stein and Hillary’s Recount Effort Just Stopped in Michigan, Failing in Pennsylvania


Jill Stein RecountJill Stein and Hillary Clinton’s shameful recount efforts are a fraud, and are wasting millions in taxpayer dollars. Now, states are finally becoming so frustrated with the legal process that they are rejecting recount requests!    The state of Michigan recount was just stopped, after the Michigan Court of Appeals agreed that Stein is not an “aggrieved candidate” and therefore the count must stop. This is because Stein received fewer than 1% of the vote, which made her statically irrelevant.

In the meantime, the recount has been costing the state $12 million, despite any evidence of technical errors or fraud:

In addition, the recount effort in Pennsylvania is likely to end after a scheduled hearing. For Hillary and Stein voters, this is the worst possible news:
U.S. District Judge Paul Diamond in Philadelphia on Tuesday scheduled a hearing Friday on the request for a recount. The Republican Party and Trump warned that the case threatens Pennsylvania’s ability to certify its election before the Dec. 13 federal deadline. Stein’s team hasn’t produced evidence of hacking, but calls Pennsylvania’s election system “a national disgrace.”  Also Tuesday, Pennsylvania election officials updated the state’s vote count to show that Trump’s lead over Clinton had shrunk to about 44,000 out of more than 6 million votes cast. That is still shy of Pennsylvania’s 0.5 percent trigger for an automatic statewide recount. A state spokeswoman said 15 provisional ballots remain uncounted.  Read more -The Political Insider >>>>>

I just did my morning news-prep. I read a bunch of headlines and stories from all over the Net.  The headlines alone in Breitbart are enough to stun an elephant. If an elephant could read Breitbart.  If the rampant, berserker Dems and Libs could read Breitbart, they would be stunned too. At the truth.  What an unnatural hypocrisy from the ensorcelled, berserker Left! What lies they sing; what evil the anti-Trump-America insectoids chitter of; what ravening, mindless, terrifying creatures of the night they are.  I’m talking about the so-called “leadership.” The lying, rotten, totalitarian politicians; the over paid and overfed “news” readers and propagandist script writers; the enablers and agitation propaganda masters like Obama.

The direly rampant celebrities, “entertainers,” kneeling athletes, and other proponents of a Leftist World. Probably they stupidly believe they are trying to do something beneficial.

I’m not talking about the average, ordinary, devout Democrat. I know some of them. They are not all bad; they are not all evil. They believe religiously in CNN, MSNBC, PBS, Al Jazeera, ABC, CBS, the NYT, and all the rest of the prophesying princelings, gods and Masters of Lies. It’s not the average, inculcated person’s fault if they have been made to believe whatever they are told.

They are unable to change. They are unable to disbelieve. They are broken. They seem useless to me.  But, we do NOT want to harm them. They should have no fear of us.

The Press on the left WSJ, NYT, WP, AP to mention a few; will do anything no matter how crooked of how false to get their lies out to the public

The mainstream media and EU’s ‘Fake News Frankenstein’

Like a drowning man fights to take down his rescuer with him, the mainstream media’s hooked up with the European Union in attempts to take down Breitbart, Alex Jones and Drudge.  A real life Mission Impossible unfolding before our very eyes.  Truth seekers starved from the truth by elected governments of the day recognize the good guys: Breitbart, Jones, Drudge, just as they do the bad guys holed up in the mainstream media.
They know plain truth when they see it, and can spot the lies of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Angela Merkel et al from miles away.  It’s come down to the trite saying that whenever the mainstream media’s or a politician’s lips are moving, they’re bound to be lying.  Edicts from unelected bigwigs within the now going defunct European Union are recognized for what they truly are, orders manufactured from wishful thinking.
The going-broke mainstream media, hoisted by their own petards during the 2016 Election campaign, went scurrying back into the lab to create a new Frankenstein, rolling out “Fake News” as ‘Frankenstein 2016’.  Problem is that the public is laughing at rather than running from this hastily designed monster.  CANADAFREEPRESS – Read On>>>>>>>>

House to vote this week on IRS impeachment

Washington Examiner

House to vote this week on IRS impeachment

Rep. Jim Jordan announced Tuesday he will introduced a resolution today to impeach IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, setting up a vote this week in the House on impeachment.   “John Koskinen needs to be held accountable,” the Ohio Republican said at a forum hosted by Judicial Watch. “Later today on the House floor, we will make the motion to impeach Mr. Koskinen.”
Jordan’s plan is to call up an impeachment resolution, which will require some form of action by the House within two days, setting up a vote before lawmakers leave for the rest of the year. If lawmakers challenged it — for example, by making a motion to table it — a vote would be held on that motion, and that vote would essentially become a proxy vote for impeachment.  washinbgton Examiner – Read On>>>>>

Trump tells it like it is on Taiwan

From Des Moines to Detroit to Palm Beach to Staten Island, the first answer was always the same when you asked a Trump voter why they supported the man: “He tells it like it is.”  This didn’t mean his supporters always agreed with him. “He tells it like it is,” meant, for the most part, that he didn’t care for PC pieties. Voters reacted viscerally to this, and it brought him victory.  President-elect Trump trampled one such piety on Friday when he took a congratulatory phone call from Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen.
The foreign policy establishment and the legions of reflexively critical anti-Trump pundits, have responded — how many times has it been since Election Day? — as though the sky was falling. The only acceptable response, they say, would have been to decline to take the call. Washington foreign policy dogma is that Taiwan has no president because it is part of China.

U.S. leaders have mouthed the cringing pieties of the “One China” policy for decades whilst nevertheless selling arms to Taiwan. A year ago, for instance, President Obama sent $1.8 billion worth of anti-tank missiles and amphibious attack vehicles to Taiwan. This is the norm, as Washington Examiner commentary writer Philip Wegmann documented Monday:

In addition to the ISIS threat, U.S. special forces will be on “high alert” during Trump’s inauguration, “But security analysts have been following communications between members of the group who are planning large scale attacks on that day, it has been claimed.”  According to reports ISIS has expanded production of special editions of official videos with English subtitles in recent weeks and with a view to reinforcing targets on US soil.
And their ISIS-linked Amaq Agency Telegram channels have resumed posting on social networks after they were went temporarily offline following a terror attack in the US last Monday.  We are also learning that Europe is on high alert following multiple attacks in Belgium and France, and Europol believes the likelihood of future attacks is very high:             A report published today by Europol said: ”France remains high in the target list for ISIS aggression in the EU, but so too do Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.”

The National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2017

HASC Communications: 52539 H.R. 4909 –

The National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2017

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2017 is the primary way Congress meets its most important constitutional obligation to “provide for the common defense.” It advances the vital funding and authorities that America’s Military requires. Unprecedented threats, uncertainty, and technological change, combined with a high-operational tempo and declining resources, have sharply eroded the readiness of our military.
Through this legislation, Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-TX) and the Committee begin to restore Strength and Agility to America’s Armed Forces. The House Armed Services Committee met Wednesday, April 27, and passed H.R. 4909 favorably on to the House with a bipartisan vote of 60-2. Resources
The disparity between declining resources and proliferating threats has forced military commanders to make difficult decisions for many years that have weakened the force. Often they involved deferring maintenance, reducing training, and delaying procurement of replacement systems or platforms in order to provide those deployed with urgently-needed capabilities.
Implementing budget cuts by slashing training and equipment for forces preparing to deploy is a dangerous and ultimately irresponsible strategy. The sharp rise in major Army and Marine Corps aviation accidents is but one indication that this approach is having a devastating impact on the force.
Last year, Congress and the President recognized that investment in core Department of Defense (DOD) functions would be essential to reverse this trend and restore strength to the military. The parties to the Bipartisan Budget Agreement all recognized that base funding for National Defense would need to be set at $574 billion in FY17. Additionally, OCO funding would be required to meet ongoing contingency operations worldwide.
Consistent with that agreement, the NDAA maintains adherence to the House Budget Committee approved budget resolution of $574 billion for National Defense base requirements by authorizing $543.4 billion in base funding for requirements within the Committee’s jurisdiction. Additionally, the legislation provides $23.1 billion in Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) accounts for 2 base requirements, which is $18 billion more than was provided in the President’s Budget Request, in order to begin to restore readiness in the force.
The bill further provides OCO funding of nearly $35.7 billion, which will cover contingency operations until April 2017. The Chairman’s expectation is that a new President will assess the national security landscape and submit a supplemental budget request – as is traditional in the first year of a new administration. The total funding authorized for defense in the House bill is the same as the level proposed by President Obama’s budget. NDAA SUMMARY – Read On>>>>>

Transition official: Trump will not rip up NAFTA

Transition official: Trump will not rip up NAFTABY ALEXANDER BOLTON –
Members of the Donald Trump transition team are trying to tamp down concerns among corporate leaders that the incoming administration may spark trade wars with Mexico, Canada and other major trading partners over the next four years.  Anthony Scaramucci, a senior adviser on the Trump transition team, told a group of business leaders convened at a bipartisan meeting by the group No Labels that President-elect Trump is a free-trader who is looking to make trade deals more fair, not scrap them.
“I don’t think we’re looking to rip up NAFTA as much as we are looking to right-size it and make it fairer,” he added. “He’s got a great relationship, by the way, with the Mexican president. They talk regularly,” referring to Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.  Scaramucci said his homework on Trump’s economic team has been to study the impact of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which Trump called “the worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere” during the presidential campaign.

Tucker Carlson Is Making Cable News Great Again [VIDEO]


Tucker Carlson’s new Fox primetime show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” is turning heads and attracting a large audience — the news network even broke records in November.

Fair and feisty, the founder of The Daily Caller grasps America outside the elite media bubble.
This exclusive video interview with him for The Daily Caller News Foundation has a candid Carlson riffing on the media’s gaffes, President-elect Donald Trump’s win, American culture, his background and more. He even discusses why he fell asleep one morning on “Fox and Friends,” something his friends have mercilessly teased him about.  Carlson says “the entertainment industry is pushing perverse things on America,” further coarsening the country’s toxic culture. He rejects the label of being intolerant for thinking traditional families help children thrive — marriage works and is worth fighting for, he says.
He explains Trump won the White House because of the “primal scream by people who have been ignored and despised” by the cultural, media and political elites. It was “a revolt of the middle class and people voting with their middle finger,” he says. “People think the game is rigged by the elites and in a democracy that is not sustainable.”  As for the excuses offered up by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Democrats for why they lost, Carlson says “the left has gotten dumb and shallow and unable to see clearly. Identity politics has made them dumb.”  Click here for the rest of the story.


Dancing with insanity

Column: 134 House Democrats collectively lost their minds

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif., was re-elected as the House Democratic leader with 134 votes. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)One-hundred and thirty-four House Democrats collectively lost their minds last week. That is how many of Nancy Pelosi’s colleagues it took to vote her back into power despite having lost her third consecutive chance at winning back the majority from the Republicans.  Her win over Youngstown Ohio Democrat Tim Ryan for Minority Leader proved two-thirds of those House Democrats have more interest in someone who is a deep-pocket fundraiser than someone who perhaps could have made the party more competitive in swing districts or more cohesive in their message to the voters.
Or perhaps both.
Their decision was arrogant, tone deaf and a smack in the face to the voters who once proudly supported this party and were waiting to see if someone would lead them back out of the progressive wilderness.  Kevin Lawson, 22, is one young Democrat who would have preferred Ryan over Pelosi, “We need a message that resonates not only with young people, but a much broader swath of the country,” he said. “Ryan talked about the economy in his local race, but the overall message from the party was flat and uninspiring.”  Lawson, a senior at Youngstown State University located in the district Ryan represents, says it’s not going to get any easier in the 2018 midterms, when the party needs to win 24 seats to regain the majority in the House.
For whatever reason, Ryan’s argument going forward to win those kinds of numbers through solid recruiting and a sound economic message landed on deaf ears within his caucus.  Democrats fell wildly short of expectations once again this year largely because they had not formed a unified message around the economy and the public’s distaste with the costs and burdens of Obamacare, said Lawson, “And they also underestimated the impact Donald Trumpwould have in some of their competitive districts.”

Singer, songwriter and Entertainer Dana Kamide wrote the lyrics and performed the lead vocals and produced the video. Democrats got Shellacked in the last 3 elections. Yet Obama and the media still trying to make up stories why Donald Trump was elected instead of admit that for the last 8-10 years their policies have FAILED AMERICA! Dont forget to LIKE Dana’s Facebook page:

Here are the lyrics :

It’s the most wonderful time in 8 years
Yet some kids are protesting
while Trump fans investing their time with good cheer
Sing It’s the most wonderful time in 8 years

It’s the hap-happiest voting season of all
With each staff member Trump picks, Democrats up to their old tricks …Just trashing them all
but It’s the hap- happiest election season of all

There’ll be one party hosting All three branches toasting
but how low now will the press go
There’ll spin misguided stories Trying to steal Trump’s glory
from a playbook written, long long ago

It’s the most wonderful time in 8 years
There’ll be much more enjoyment a lot less unemployment
Cuz Trump will be near
It’s the most wonderful time in 8 years (go up)

Hillary’s party’s not hosing they’re no longer toasting,
Beyonce, Kanye, Cop Killers, Racists and the Muslim Brotherhood
They ignored true stories of Hillary who wasn’t sorry
for her crimes now and long ago

Now It’s the most wonderful time in 8 Years
We’ll deport all the criminals, Taxes will be minimal
Bad trade deals disappear
It’s the most wonderful time
yes the most wonderful time
Oh the most wonderful time… in 8 years
