Hey Congress! You Forgot to Save the Internet

Congress, you left DC on September 29 without taking action to stop the transfer of control of the Internet from the United States government to the UN-aligned Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), scheduled for October 1.

As William F. Jasper wrote in “Obama-UN Internet Takeover Is Just Hours Away“:

Members of Congress, national security experts, military professionals, constitutional authorities, privacy advocates, and human rights activists are warning that this pending transition to “independent” oversight by “the international community” is fraught with danger.
You (Congress) could have included a postponement of the handover of the Internet to international authorities in the Continuing Resolution that you passed on September 28, but you didn’t.

Just think of the incredible importance of the Internet for our national security, the operations of all levels of government, our economy, our access to information, and our personal free speech and prosperity.

The attorneys general of four states (Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, and Nevada) are making a last-ditch effort to stop the Internet handover by filing a lawsuit in federal district court in Texas. We need more states to join this lawsuit.

However, what we need most of all is for you (Congress) to convene an emergency session of Congress to prevent the handover of the Internet from the United States to an unaccountable UN-aligned organization.

The freedom, security, and economic well-being of 325 million Americans are at stake!

Please hold an emergency session of Congress ASAP and save the Internet!

[Please phone the DC offices (Senate: 202-224-3121 and House: 202-225-3121) and local offices of your senators and representative with an abbreviated version of the above message (Such as: “Please hold an emergency session of Congress to stop the handover of the Internet from the U.S. to a United Nations-aligned organization. We simply can’t afford to subject the Internet to the likely influence of our enemies.”).

Also, please send the above message in an email to your senators and representative.

Pledging a Grievance

President Obama set out to fundamentally transform America — and the evidence of his success is everywhere. From the decimated military to the NFL quarterbacks sitting during our national anthem, patriotism has taken one of the biggest hits. Weeks after the San Francisco 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick started a national firestorm by refusing to stand for the “Star Spangled Banner,” the wave of protests are starting to spill over into our classrooms, school board meetings, and sporting events. Just this past Wednesday, seven members of the New York City Council sat in their chairs for the Pledge of Allegiance, in solidarity, they claim, with Kaepernick’s statement against U.S. police. When Mayor Bill de Blasio was asked about the councilmembers’ decision, he said, “I absolutely respect everyone’s First Amendment rights, and I very much respect what’s motivating this protest.”
Unfortunately for our nation, these demonstrations are about a lot more than racial tension or police brutality. What’s happening in the NFL and local councils show how far President Obama and the Left have fractured America. In just two terms, it’s become vogue to attack our national symbols and traditions — and lately, we see that this rebellion is spilling over to those who uphold the law. But there’s a far deeper problem at work than simple disrespect for our anthem or pledge: the attack on religion in America. As George Washington cautioned his young country in his farewell address, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labour to subvert these great pillars of human happiness.”
Just as there is no virtue without religion and morality, there’s no patriotism either. We cannot have a civil society without virtue; and we cannot have virtue without faith. If Americans are content with riots in our streets and everyone doing what’s right in their own eyes, then by all means, let’s stay this course. Otherwise, a return to patriotism starts with a return to God — in whose name we pledge our country and, we pray, our future.

Humor but not so humorous!


Regardless of your political views, this one is more than funny!  In these politically charged times, it’s not often you get an email you can share with both your Democratic and

Republican friends.  This way I get to find out if anybody is lacking a sense of humor!!!

The Captain gets on the loud-speaker and shouts, “Ahoy, small craft.  Where are you headed?”
One of the Mexicans put down his oar, stands up, and shouts,

Invading                                                          the USA Aint                                                          this the                                                          TRUTH

The entire crew on the destroyer doubles over in laughter. When the Captain finally catches his breath, he gets back on the loud-speaker and asks,   “Just the four of you?”

The same Mexican stands up again and shouts, “No, we’re the last four.   The other 12 million are already there!”

 Nobody on the destroyer laughed.


‘If You Cherish Free Expression,’ ‘You Should Be Worried,’ This Is ‘Irreversible’

 FCC Commissioner on Internet Oversight Switch: ‘If You Cherish Free Expression,’ ‘You Should Be Worried,’ This Is ‘Irreversible’

by IAN HANCHETT28 Sep 2016

On Wednesday’s “Sean Hannity Show,” FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai (R) stated that the plan to “essentially give up the US oversight role…of the Internet” to ICANN is something that should worry anyone who cherishes “free expression, and free speech rights generally,” and could potentially cede oversight of the Internet to “foreign governments who might not share our values.” He further stated that such a move is “irreversible.”

Pai said, “This proposal is to essentially give up the US oversight role that it’s had for the last 20 years, basically for the entire commercial lifespan of the Internet to a company called ICANN, which is an international organization, which includes a number of foreign countries. And, it’s an unprecedented move, and one that, as Mr. DeMint pointed out, is irreversible. Once we give up this oversight role, we can’t get it back.”
He added that Internet oversight is a case of, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Pai further stated, “[I]f you cherish free expression, and free speech rights generally, you should be worried, I think, when there’s — this oversight role’s going to be ceded to potentially, foreign governments who might not share our values.”

Tracking Liberal Media Bias Since 1996

1. Nearly 20 Mins on Trump’s ‘Miss Piggy’ Remark, Silence on Clinton Chief of Staff Immunity
Once again, ABC, CBS and NBC have ignored a major news story that could be embarrassing to Hillary Clinton and have national implications, while promoting a negative (and trivial) Trump story initially pushed by the Clinton campaign. On September 23, news broke that during the now-infamous investigation into Clinton’s emails, the FBI granted Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills immunity. Yet, neither ABC, CBS nor NBC ever even mentioned this story once.
2. Nets Skip FBI Director Grilled for Immunities in Clinton Investigation
FBI Director James Comey appeared before the House Oversight Committee Wednesday, where Congressional Republicans unloaded on him for giving immunity to people they accused of being liars. “The more FBI Director Comey talks about integrity of the e-mail investigation, the less Republicans and critics seem convinced,” reported Fox News’ Chief Intelligence Correspondent Catherine Herridge on Special Report. But even such incendiary accusations flying around a congressional hearing, ABC, CBS, and NBC yawned.
3. After Ruling Clinton Scandals Off Limits, NBC Blasts ‘Sexist’ Trump
After NBC’s Today spent three straight days scolding Donald Trump for even thinking about mentioning Bill Clinton’s habitual mistreatment of women, on Wednesday, the morning show had no trouble doing the Clinton campaign’s bidding by touting allegations of Trump’s “sexist behavior.”
4. ABC Is Alarmed Over Trump’s Fat Shaming, But Fat Shamed Christie
According to the journalists at Good Morning America, it’s apparently okay to fat shame some people, so long as they are Republicans. On Wednesday, George Stephanopoulos opened the program by trumpeting, “Trump doubles down on his criticism of the former Miss Universe, saying her weight as a big problem.” Reporter Amy Robach alerted that in 1996, “Trump publicly shamed” contestant Alicia Machado, calling her an “eating machine” and “Ms. Piggy.”
5. Halperin Tells Trump to Avoid ‘Distraction’ of Clinton Scandals
On Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer once again whined over Donald Trump threatening to bring up Bill Clinton’s sex scandals during a debate with Hillary Clinton: “There’s this other thing that he continues to talk about yesterday, this idea that he did not go there, that he showed restraint against Hillary Clinton when it comes to issues in her marriage. It’s this thing where you get to go there by saying you’re not going there….So is this working?”
6. Watch Cranky Chris Matthews Badger Dana Loesch About What ‘You Folks Think’ Hillary Did on Benghazi
The opening panel on the Tuesday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball briefly derailed from its scheduled topic of Monday’s presidential debate when host Chris Matthews lost his mind in relentlessly screaming at The Blaze host and conservative author Dana Loesch to explain “[w]hat was it that you folks think was the evil” Hillary Clinton committed concerning Benghazi.
7. ABC Is Enthralled by Clinton’s ‘Secret Weapon’ and ‘Famous Friends’
The highly superficial ABC let their viewers know how they really felt about Hillary Clinton’s campaign Wednesday evening during World News Tonight. “And tonight, one of Clinton’s most powerful weapons, First Lady Michelle Obama, in Pennsylvania,” touted anchor David Muir leading into Cecilia Vega’s report, “And she did not hold back on the Trump.” Muir’s praise was accompanied with the flattering on-screen headline “Hillary’s Secret Weapon.”
8. Actress Kathleen Turner Blames ‘Scared’ White Men for ‘Iffy’ Hillary Distrust
Liberal actress Kathleen Turner, who in the ‘80s starred in such films as Body Heat andRomancing the Stone, is thoroughly baffled as to why some people don’t trust Hillary Clinton. Talking to the Washington Post, Wednesday, the celebrity opined, “I really truly think a lot of this comes down to white men thinking that they’re losing all their power, and they’re scared s—less.”


Giuliani: Trump Right About ‘Stop-and-Frisk’ – Lester Holt, HIllary Clinton Dead Wrong –


Giuliani: Trump Right About ‘Stop-and-Frisk’
Image: Giuliani: Trump Right About 'Stop-and-Frisk'

Wednesday, 28 Sep 2016 10:50 AM
 Donald Trump is right about the need for police to be able to “stop-and-frisk” crime suspects — and NBC’s Lester Holt, the presidential debate moderator who dubbed the practice as unconstitutional, should apologize to him, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani says.
“One of the strategies that helped bring about an 85 percent reduction in crime in New York City between 1994 and 2013 was the careful and appropriate use of ‘stop-and-frisk,'” Giuliani writes in an opinion piece in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal.
 “But according to candidate Hillary Clinton and moderator Lester Holt during Monday night’s presidential debate, stop-and-frisk is ‘unconstitutional.’ They are wrong.
 “In Mrs. Clinton’s case, it’s the usual misrepresenting she does when she does not know what she is talking about. As for Mr. Holt, if a moderator is going to interfere, he should do some homework and not pretend to know the law when he does not. Mr. Holt and NBC cannot overrule the U.S. Supreme Court.”
Giuliani points to an 8-1 U.S. Supreme Court decision in 1968 which approved the constitutionality of the practice.
 “Lester Holt should apologize for interfering and trying so hard to help Mrs. Clinton support her incorrect statement that ‘stop-and-frisk’ is unconstitutional,” Giuliani wrote.


Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1 (1968), was a decision by the United States Supreme Court which held that the Fourth Amendment prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures is not violated when a police officer stops a suspect on the street and frisks him or her without probable cause to arrest, if the police officer has a reasonable suspicion that the person has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime and has a reasonable belief that the person “may be armed and presently dangerous.”[1]
For their own protection, after a person has been stopped, police may perform a quick surface search of the person’s outer clothing for weapons if they have reasonable suspicion that the person stopped is armed. This reasonable suspicion must be based on “specific and articulable facts” and not merely upon an officer’s hunch. This permitted police action has subsequently been referred to in short as a “stop and frisk,” or simply a “Terry frisk”. The Terry standard was later extended to temporary detentions of persons in vehicles, known as traffic stops; see Terry stop for a summary of subsequent jurisprudence.
The rationale behind the Supreme Court decision revolves around the understanding that, as the opinion notes, “the exclusionary rule has its limitations.” The meaning of the rule is to protect persons from unreasonable searches and seizures aimed at gathering evidence, not searches and seizures for other purposes (like prevention of crime or personal protection of police officers).

Senate overrides Obama 9/11 veto in overwhelming vote

Senate overrides Obama 9/11 veto in overwhelming vote

The Senate on Wednesday voted to override President Obama’s veto of a bill letting the victims of the 9/11 attacks sue Saudi Arabia, striking a blow to the president on foreign policy weeks before he leaves office.  The vote marks the first time the Senate has mustered enough votes to overrule Obama’s veto pen.  Not a single Democrat came to the Senate floor before the vote to argue in favor of Obama’s position.
Lawmakers don’t want to be seen as soft on punishing terrorist sponsors a few weeks before the election, at a time when voters are increasingly worried about radical Islamic terrorism in the wake of recent attacks in Manhattan, Minnesota and Orlando, Fla.  The House will take up the matter next, and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told reporters last week that he expects there be to enough votes for an override.
 The legislation, sponsored by Senate Republican Whip John Cornyn (Texas) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), the third-ranking member of the Democratic leadership, would create an exception in the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act to allow the victims of terrorism to sue foreign sponsors of attacks on U.S. soil.  It was crafted primarily at the urging of the families of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks who want to sue Saudi Arabian officials found to have links with the hijackers who flew planes into the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
 It passed the Senate and House unanimously in May and September, respectively, but without roll-call votes. THE HILL – Read On >>>>>

Online votes declare Trump debate winner, despite media consensus for Clinton
These polls are non-scientific, meaning the makeup of those who responded did not necessarily reflect the population of likely voters. In many cases, the protections against people voting more than once were also minimal.

Total votes cast in the polls listed above 6,054,828, this is a strong sampling and points to Hillary losing big time among the general populous.  The “Scientific” polls may show different results but you have to consider things like in the “Scientific” CNN poll I personally participated in shown above CNN/ORC,  Hillary won, out of 521 registered voters, 26% of the respondents were Republicans, 41% Democrats, and 33% Independents.
That makes it 74% against 26%; if you split the independents it would still be 32% to 54%? No matter how you scrub it, Hillary will always win becsue the experts state many of the polls are weighted 7-12% left, so basically every poll you see from CNBC, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, are going to show Hillary winning except in the cases where the numbers are over whelming in Trumps favor.

This paints a pretty good picture of where Trump stand  with respect to Hillary. We also see it in the Rallies, the day after the debate in Melbourne, Fl, Trump had 15.000 in attendance, that same day Hillary held a rally, had 1.400 and they stated that was a very good number for her? We saw the same thing in Kissimmee Florida August 1 0r 2nd where Trump had a rally with 15,0000 plus, the next day in the same arena Hillary had a rally, press headcount 150-200 people, this has to tell you something.


Clinton feels the pressure

Hillary Clinton is feeling the pressure in the race for the White House — even after a strong night in the first 2016 presidential debate.  Clinton has a huge staff advantage over Donald Trump, which should help her turn out supporters this fall.
The Electoral College is tilted in her favor, and demographics are moving in the Democratic Party’s direction.  She’s running to succeed a popular president who is firmly on her side, and the economy is strengthening.  She’s also running against Trump, who has divided the Republican Party while alienating large groups of Americans.
Despite all those advantages, Clinton finds herself in an excruciatingly tight race.  As recently as Aug. 27, she had a more than 6-point lead over Trump in the RealClearPolitics national average of polls after a strong stretch following the Democratic National Convention.  On Tuesday, her lead was 2.4 percentage points in RealClearPolitics national advantage.
Polls have shown Trump ahead in the swing states of Florida and Ohio, and he has at least a fighting chance in all of the other battlegrounds, from purple states such as Nevada and Virginia to Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, two states a Republican hasn’t won in decades.  Clinton’s team believes its candidate had a strong performance in Monday’s debate that will translate into a wider lead going into the second and third contests next month.
“The debate buoys her to the next big thing and the next debate,” said one Clinton surrogate.  They also argue that it is Trump who faces some pressure. The next presidential debate on Oct. 9 in St. Louis could be a must-win situation for the Republican.  All the same, Clinton and her supporters acknowledge they are in a dogfight over the next six weeks that could still go either way.
And they expect a fierce challenge from Trump.  “I’m afraid that since Trump is backed into a corner, he’ll come out swinging for the gutter,” said Democratic strategist and Clinton surrogate Jim Manley. “There’s still a long way to go between now and the election in November. There’s still lots of ups and downs and many twists to go.”  It some ways, it’s more than an election that’s at stake for the Democratic nominee.
If Clinton loses, the gains her party made in the Obama years could be turned back, from the Affordable Care Act and Wall Street reform to regulatory actions on climate change and immigration.  Clinton would also go down as the Democrat who lost to Trump — a status she clearly does not want. Democrats moved out of her way so that she had a relatively clear primary path in the hopes that the party could retain the White House for a third term.
“There’s a lot on the line,” one surrogate said. “And we don’t have a second to spare.”  The surrogate said the campaign has been sidelined at times by storylines like the controversy over Clinton’s use of a private email server at the State Department — which overshadowed her campaign and fed into the narrative that Clinton is dishonest and secretive.  “I think a lot of people have wondered why we don’t have a commanding lead in the final stretch, and I think she’s going to have to spend some time sealing the deal for a lot of folks.”
If Clinton is feeling the pressure, you rarely see it.  On Tuesday, she said she was up for the challenge.  “You should know by now, when I set my mind on something, I keep going,” she told reporters on her plane just weeks after a bout of pneumonia forced her off the campaign trail briefly.
“I don’t quit, whatever the static, whatever the incoming is, and that’s what I’ll do for the American people,” she said.  Still, that doesn’t mean Clinton hasn’t wondered why she doesn’t have a bigger lead against Trump with a little more than 40 days to go until Election Day.  Last week, during a videoconference with the Laborers International Union of North America, she vocalized it: “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead, you might ask?”
The comment was an acknowledgement of a question her supporters ask — and of their frustration.  Earlier this week, the Trump campaign put out an ad criticizing Clinton for the remark and accusing her of becoming “more and more frustrated with how out of touch she is” with voters.
“Her message is not resonating with everyday Americans, as evidenced by the closing poll numbers, and she has completely underestimated the influence of Mr. Trump’s movement,” said Jason Miller, a Trump spokesman.  “Expect to see more aggressive outbursts from the Clinton camp as she realizes her email scandal, horrific record and disdain for the American people block her from being coronated as she originally intended.”  Clinton allies say they hoped their candidate’s performance on Monday night stopped Trump’s momentum so they can begin building a lead again.
“I think her base may be stronger than ever, and motivated,” one longtime Clinton adviser said.  But, at the same time, the adviser cautioned that “there should be no resting on laurels.”


House strikes deal on Flint, potentially ending shutdown threat

By Melanie Zanona09/27/16 11:29 PM EDT
House leaders have reached a deal to potentially include emergency funding for lead-contaminated communities like Flint, Mich., in a waterways bill in a move that is designed to stave off an election-year government shutdown later this week.  The agreement comes after Senate Democrats and a handful of Republicans blocked a stop-gap spending bill to fund the government past Sept. 30. Democrats opposed the legislation because it lacked Flint aid but included help for Louisiana flood victims.
The House Rules Committee agreed late Tuesday night to allow a floor vote on a bipartisan amendment from Reps. Dan Kildee (D-Mich.) and John Moolenar (R-Mich.) that would authorize up to $170 million for communities around the country that are facing a drinking water crisis.  The panel reversed course from a meeting on Monday, when committee lawmakers said they could not waive a budgetary point of order for a $220 million Flint amendment offered by Kildee to the water infrastructure bill.
Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas) praised lawmakers from both sides of the aisle on Tuesday for their “hard work over the past couple of hours” on the deal.  A Senate-passed version of the waterways bill included a $220 million Flint aid package, but the House version lacked the same drinking water provisions due to committee jurisdictional differences.

GOP leadership had assured lawmakers that the Flint issue could be dealt with in conference committee negotiations on the water bill, but Democrats wanted a stronger show of good faith from House Republicans.  The full House will now vote on the Flint amendment Wednesday, although it’s unclear just how much support it will garner. The upper and lower chambers also would still need to reconcile their two bills.

But the breakthrough could remove Democratic opposition to a continuing resolution that lacks Flint aid.
Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) said he looks forward to reading through the language and hopes that the compromise lives up to its promise of helping the children and residents of Flint.

Newsmax Debate Special | Dick Morris and Steve Malzberg analyze Trump’s debate performance

Donald Trump “left a lot of shots open that he could have taken” at Hillary Clinton in their debate — and “he’s got to be a better debater in the future,” political strategist Dick Morris told Newsmax TV on Monday.  “He’s asked the question about cybersecurity — and he takes it on face value and he lets Hillary take it on face value,” Morris told host J.D. Hayworth on the “Newsmax TV Post-Debate Special” in an interview. “The answer on cybersecurity is secure your own damn email, secretary of state, and he didn’t do that.
 “Then, he’s asked a question about what can we do to reduce the crime in various cities? And he doesn’t take it. He doesn’t talk about stopping immigrants from coming in, from terror-sponsoring countries.  “He doesn’t mention the word ‘Benghazi’ in the entire debate, despite many opportunities to do so.  “Of the four rounds, he won two and he lost two,” Morris said. “But he could have done such a better job.”

BOOM! Charlotte Officials FINALLY Silence Rioters With One E P I C Announcement!

Fact check :

CLAIM: Charlotte “rioters” will lose all government benefits if caught “looting” during protests after the death of Keith Lamont Scott.


ORIGIN:The shooting of Keith Lamont Scott on 20 September 2016 kicked off protests in Charlotte, North Carolina, events that a clickbait fake news site shamelessly played upon to lure readers into generating advertising revenue for them.

On 21 September 2016, the Baltimore Gazette — a purveyor of fake news, not a real news outlet — published an article reporting that any “rioters” caught looting in Charlotte would permanently lose food stamps and all other government benefits:

The rioting in Charlotte has practically crippled the city. Businesses were looted, windows were smashed. So-called protesters have committed any number of crimes, from arson and assault, to murder. North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory was forced to declare a state of emergency, and called in the National Guard to get the situation under control. And now, government officials have had enough, too. They just made a huge announcement that will have people thinking twice before they start protesting again.
Officials just released a proclamation that says any people caught rioting, looting, destroying property, or otherwise being violent in any unlawful manner will have their government benefits permanently revoked. But it doesn’t end there — any minor children who participate in the violence will face the same repercussions… and so will their parents. The parents of minors caught rioting will not only be held accountable for their child’s actions, but they could face losing their state benefits as well. They could also face referrals to social services, and could potentially lose custody of their children.
“Parents are responsible for their children. If they are allowing them to engage in lawless behaviors there will be consequences for them as parents,” city official Wilson Stewart said during a press conference. “Many of the individuals we have detained are high school students. We urge parents out there to know where their children are at all times until tensions are quelled. Have them adhere to the mandatory curfew. Make them aware that participation in looting, destruction of property, and violently demonstrating on any level will come with severe penalties.”
They fail to mention it was a black that killed the black in this riot ,
not the police as they were saying.and he has been arrested.
Will this keep protesters from turning violent? Will it prevent thugs from exploiting a tragic death so they can have an excuse to riot and loot and attack people? Only time will tell, but at least now they will know that there are serious consequences to their actions. Parents may also be more inclined to keep an eye on their kids, and, you know… act like parents. Let’s be real, if your kid is caught rioting and looting, then there’s a good chance you’re not doing a good job at parenting.
Officials have also put a curfew into place as they work to restore peace and order in Charlotte.

At least eight times Monday on CNN, various anchors and correspondents made the claim that Donald Trump called for racial profiling. The problem is, he didn’t. Starting at the 4:00 hour all the way through early Tuesday morning, CNN journalists added the term “racial” to Trump’s comments on profiling to combat terrorism, even devoting entire segments to discussing his statement he never actually said.
This isn’t the first time CNN has selectively subtracted or added to what someone said in their reports in order to skew their stories.
Starting on The Lead with Jake Tapper, correspondent Sara Murray stated Trump made an “apparent suggestion” for racial profiling on Fox and Friends Monday morning.
MURRAY: But offering few specifics, beyond his apparent suggestion that the U.S. should begin racial profiling.
But here’s what he actually said:
TRUMP: Our police are amazing, our local police, they know who a lot of these people are. They’re afraid to do anything about it because they don’t want to be accused of profiling. But Israel has done an unbelievable job. And they will profile. They profile. They see somebody that’s suspicious, they will profile. They see somebody that’s suspicious, they will profile and they will take that person in. They will check out. Do we have a choice? Look what’s going on. Do we really have a choice?
Again on The Situation Room, anchor Wolf Blitzer made the same assumption:
BLITZER: Donald Trump this morning said police are simply afraid to go after people in cases like this because they’re afraid of being accused of racial profiling. Is that a serious concern among law enforcement?

GOP to Trump: Don’t Take Debate

For the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints, there’s going to be some tough competition for tonight’s viewers! If there’s one clash Americans are looking forward to more than Monday Night Football, it’s the showdown between presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. After months of talking about each other, the duo will finally square off face-to-face in the first debate of what promises to be an intense month and a half for both campaigns.
To say that a lot is riding on tonight’s performance in New York City is an understatement. Locked in a dead-heat in most polls, both Trump and Clinton are trying to peel away undecided voters and surge ahead in a race with no clear leader. Both candidates come to the table with significant baggage — the former Secretary of State with 30 years of policy and professional failings spanning Benghazi to her personal email server. For Trump, the night gives him another opportunity to break away from the concerns Americans have about his blunt style and past positions.
And based on the latest numbers, he seems to be succeeding. In critical states like Ohio, Colorado, Maine, and Missouri, Trump continues to climb the polls, taking over leads that seemed insurmountable even a few weeks ago. Elsewhere, in places like Pennsylvania (Clinton 40 percent; Trump 38 percent), Clinton’s support is evaporating in the shadows of her “basket of deplorable” comment. Nationally, the see-saw battle for voters goes on. Several surveys show Trump trailing the former First Lady, with a growing number of exceptions. The LA Times/USC, Bloomberg, and Morning Consult National results suggest that the real estate mogul is eating away at Clinton’s lead — and in their surveys, overcoming it. Now that his messaging is on point, Trump is making a much stronger case to America.
One of those turning points came at the Values Voter Summit, when he and running-mate Governor Mike Pence (R-Ind.) vowed to protect religious liberty and values the country holds dear. Then came his announcement that he’d formed a pro-life coalition to take the lead on his four pledges to America: nominating pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court; signing the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act into law; defunding Planned Parenthood; and making the Hyde Amendment a permanent law to stop taxpayer-funded abortion. He followed that up by putting more policy substance to his words with a pro-family child care plan that gives working families the financial flexibility to make the right decisions for their kids.
But a lot of the credit for this polling bounce belongs to new and polished members of his team, led by full-portfolio conservatives like Kellyanne Conway. With these additions, the man a lot of people counted out is showing encouraging signs of overcoming voters’ concerns. Now, with the Republican Party is consolidating behind him (as even staunch holdouts like Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, endorse), there seems to be nowhere for Donald Trump to go but up. Tonight, in the state that both candidates call home, he’ll have an opportunity to build on the momentum and change the media’s narrative.

I’ll be there to watch. You can track my take on the night’s highlights by following me on Twitter @tperkins.

Surprise, surprise – mall shooter a Muslim

Does it make one an “Islamophobe” to strongly suspect that when a 20-year-old man walks into a shopping mall and shoots five people that he’s probably a Muslim?  If so, then color this Arab-American an “Islamophobe.”
As I got on my computer to check the news this weekend, I was pretty sure that’s what we would find.  While the news reports were all avoiding calling Arcan Cetin a Muslim, preferring say only that he was an immigrant from Turkey, where the Muslim population is 98 percent, I decided to do a little surfing.
I found his Tumblr page. And there it was.
cetin_subhanallah“Say ‘SubhanAllah’ 10x and then reblog this, do not stop REBLOGGING it. Lets see how many people we will get to recite SubhanAllah,” he posted.
What does “SubhanAllah” mean?
“Glory to Allah.”
It’s not surprising that the media couldn’t find it.
They didn’t want to. I’ve seen this phenomenon too many times over too many years – beginning with the Beltway Sniper many years back.
They look in all the wrong places for the motivation. I know how this works having worked for 20 years in the so-called “mainstream media.” Their first hope is that the serial killer is a tea-party Christian. They haven’t found one yet, but they’re still looking and hoping. Next prayer is for an active member of the National Rifle Association. Still looking. Today they hope a Donald Trump supporter to go postal.

Trump Meets Netanyahu, Affirms Jerusalem as Capital

Donald Trump met with Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu privately at the GOP nominee’s Trump Tower on Sunday, vowing to “finally accept the longstanding congressional mandate to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel.”
In a statement from the Trump campaign, they also discussed “at length Israel’s successful experience with a security fence” – an issue Trump has made a cornerstone of his campaign – as well as “the nuclear deal with Iran, the battle against ISIS and many other regional security concerns.”
Netanyahu was accompanied to the meeting by Israel’s ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer, and Trump was joined by his son-in-law Jared Kushner, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Netanyahu is scheduled to meet Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton later Sunday before flying back to Israel.
 In the statement, Trump described U.S. military assistance to Israel as an “excellent investment,” and Middle East peace can only be achieved when “the Palestinians renounce hatred and violence and accept Israel as a Jewish State.”
