Trump’s words are far less despicable than what Green-Democrat policies do to people

The fake ‘Trump is racist’ issue


The fake 'Trump is racist' issueBy now, nearly the entire world has heard reports that President Trump referred to the origins of some immigrants as “sh**hole countries.”
Democrats and their media allies spent an entire week castigating the president, calling him racist for using the salty language of Truman, Kennedy, Johnson and Hillary Clinton. Their faux outrage served to distract people from the ways Mr. Trump’s energy, deregulation and tax reform policies have rocketed the stock market to record highs a record number of times, created over two million jobs, slashed black and Hispanic unemployment, and increased US wealth by some $8 trillion since his inauguration.
 Pounding on this bad-word Fake News story also muddied discussions about immigration, which Dems hope will bring big electoral gains in November. As former Obama aide Jennifer Palmieri recently put it, illegal immigrants are “a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success.”

Mr. Obama himself waded in, saying Trump supporters and other Fox News viewers live “on a different planet” than people who watch “mainstream media.” In this era of hyper-partisan news coverage and political views, he’s absolutely right. You might call that other planet the Real World, inhabited by hard-working blue collar folks….and struggling families overseas. Which brings us to the real issue.

The naughty-word firestorm also distracts people from the Democrats’ own racial history and animus. The Republican Party of Abraham Lincoln ended slavery and championed civil rights in the 1960s, while the Democrats were the party of slavery, the KKK, segregation, and policies that even today condemn too many minority children to failed schools, fatherless homes and crime-ridden cities. Especially under President Obama, their unending war on fossil fuels hampered economic development and job creation, and brought poor, minority, middle class and blue collar family living standards down a couple notches.

Far worse is what the modern Democratic Party and its allies in the media, radical environmentalist movement and global government agencies are doing to the world’s most impoverished, malnourished, diseased, energy-deprived, politically powerless families. They do it in the name of environmental protection, sustainable development or preventing “dangerous manmade climate change.” But the policies are callous, unjust, dehumanizing, eco-imperialistic and often lethal. Some would even call them racist.

In 2009, President Obama told Africans they should refrain from using “dirty” fossil fuels and focus instead on their “bountiful” wind, solar, geothermal and biofuel energy. In 2013, he told another African audience that global warming constitutes “the biggest challenge we have environmentally,” greater than all other environmental calamities like “dirty water, dirty air.”

 “If everybody is raising living standards to the point where everybody has got a car and everybody has got air conditioning, and everybody has got a big house,” he continued, “the planet will boil over.” He then announced his “Power Africa” initiative for a “sustainable Africa”—which emphasized wind, solar, biofuel and geothermal power….but didn’t even mention fossil fuels.

His Overseas Private Investment Corporation refused to support construction of a gas-fired power plant in Ghana that would provide clean and affordable electricity to that power-deprived nation—using natural gas that companies were flaring (burning and wasting) in Ghanaian oil fields. His administration ignored South Africa’s request for a World Bank loan to continue building its state-of-the-art, coal-fired Medupi power plant. Europe’s former colonialist powers had the same attitudes toward their former colonies.

Thankfully, both projects eventually got the necessary funding and were completed.

Continued energy poverty condemns the world’s poor “to real poverty and the diseases, malnutrition and desperation that go with that absence of modern energy,” said Ugandan Steven Lyazi, who died recently in a tragic accident on a horrid African road that is also a product of pervasive poverty. These problems are due to dysfunctional government and incompetent, corrupt leaders, but also to “callous, imperialistic people in rich countries” who use exaggerated or imaginary environmental concerns and fake disasters “to limit how much poor countries may use fossil fuels (or nuclear power) to develop their economies.”

“The principal and unchanged interest” of poor countries continues to be “development and a better quality of life for [their] people,” says Pakistani academic Adil Najam: health, nutrition, jobs, education and life spans. Their principal fear is that the industrialized world is “using environmental issues as an excuse to pull up the development ladder behind it.”

“The greatest threat to the alleviation of the structural poverty of the Third World is the continuing campaign by Western governments, egged on by some climate scientists and green activists, to curb greenhouse emissions, primarily the CO2 from burning fossil fuels,” writes economist Deepak Lal. (He also wrote the foreword to the India edition of my book, Eco-Imperialism: Green power – Black death.)

APPARENTLY A LOT OF PEOPLE IN HIGHLANDS COUNTY DO NOT AGREE WITH THE FAR LEFT INDIVISIBLE IN HIGHLANDS COUNTY!

Organized by Highlands County Indivisible, the marchers will demonstrate from 10:30-11:30 a.m. against racism, sexism, homophobia, religious intolerance, environmental destruction and “any other kind of injustice being championed by our current U.S. administration,” said Indivisible member Lois Schlabach.

LET’S DO A REALITY CHECK ON HOW MANY PEOPLE SUPPORT THEM BY THE TURN OUT

  1. Sparta Rd. at U.S 27 – 6 people at 10:30 AM 4 with signs.
  2. Hammock Rd. at U.S 27 – 8 people at 10:35 AM Some with signs
  3. Sebring Parkway at U.S 27 – 20/25 people, 2 signs Impeach Trump,
  4. Hal McRae Blvd at US 27 –  NO ONE at 10:45 AM
  5. State rd. 64 at US 27  NO ONE at 10:45 AM
  6. (4 people walking between above 2 with signs).
  7. Sebring Circle NO ONE at 11:00 AM and NO ONE at 12:30 PM
    (many chairs set up at circle theater but not in use at 12:30)
  8. Women’s Club on Lakeview had about 25 cars with some empty
    space at 12:45 PM NO people demonstrating

    NOT WHAT WE WOULD CALL A ROARING SUCCESS

LET”S REVIEW THEIR PROTEST SIGNS FOR FACTUALITY:
  • Several signs for funding CHIP, (See data below) 
  • 2 for right to Unionize?
    (A sign of Indivisible’s ignorance they apparently are not aware of
    the “National Labor Relations Act of 1935”
  • Signs calling for Impeachment, apparently show Indivisible’s lack of
    knowledge on this point also, apparently ignorant  of the rules for
    Impeachment.
Lets look at Indivisible members ignorance on the CHIP issue; there’s no
disagreement on the CHIP policy funding, lawmakers on both sides of
the aisle support funding CHIP.

The issue is it should be a stand alone bill, not part of the Overall Government
budget.  The democrats are using it as a bargaining chip to get their DACA
Amnesty and this is wrong, totally wrong!

The president’s position on CHIP:
CHIP should be part of a long term solution, not a 30 Day, or short term, extension!
Donald J. Trump,  January 18, 2018

To explain: A Long term solution is a bill that makes it a permanent law period.  Short
term is putting CHIP in Government funding which is re-enacted every year or two.

Before you go out to demonstrate, it pays to know the facts around the issue you are
demonstrating for or against!

Otherwise you are just showing your ignorance to the public!

WHO IS INDIVISIBLE FROM A NATIONAL VIEW NOT THEIRS:

“Indivisible’s message are either financed directly by Soros or have
close ties to groups funded by the billionaire”

Indivisible is a group of progressive activists (SOCIALIST) who are
showing 
up at Republican town halls across the country with the
purpose of wreaking 
havoc.  Sarah Dohl, along with a handful of
friends and former OBAMA loyalist 
Capitol Hill colleagues, wanted
Americans — mostly distraught Democrats — to know their voices
could still be heard.

The strategy, said Dohl, echoes the tea party movement that sprang
up in 2009

That statement above is as a absolute lie, you have never seen a
Tea party start riots, or cause massive disruptions at congressional
meeting, or at local 
Representatives Town Halls, We attend, and in
orderly
manner present our issues or objections to issue.  These
Indivisible people do not, they come with one mission; to cause
disruption, block free speech, and even force cancellation of these meetings.

They are nothing but a bunch of uninformed, ignorant,
Radical
Socialist Hell bent on driving America into the same
situation as
Venezuela, by continuing to follow the Obama path
of
Socialism and destruction ofthis great nation The United States
of America!

TO DATE 2934 DAILY

 

Here is every previous government shutdown, why they happened and how they ended

 September 25, 2013
Since the modern congressional budgeting process took effect in 1976, there have been a total of seventeen separate government shutdowns (or “spending gaps” in Hill jargon). Given that we appear to be headed for another one imminently, let’s look back at those experiences, the political circumstances around them and what happened as a consequence. Most of the specifics were drawn from The Washington Post print archives, which you can access for a modest sum here.
It’s also important to note that not all shutdowns are created equal. Before some 1980 and 1981 opinions issued by then-Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti, a failure to fund some part of the government didn’t necessarily mean that that part of government would stop functioning. Civiletti’s opinions interpreted the Antideficiency Act, a law passed in 1884, as meaning that a failure to pass new spending bills required government functioning to shut down in whole or in part. So the “shutdowns” listed below that happened between 1976 tand 1979 did not always entail an actual stop to government functioning; they were often simply funding gaps that didn’t have any real-world effect.

Shutdown #1: HEWdown

When did it take place? Sept. 30 to Oct. 11, 1976
How long did it last? 10 days
Who was president? Gerald Ford
Who controlled the Senate? Democrats, 62-38; Mike Mansfield was majority leader
Who controlled the House? Democrats, 291-144; Carl Albert was speaker
Why did it happen? The major budget conflict during this period came because Ford vetoed a funding bill for the Departments of Labor and Health, Education, and Welfare (or HEW, today split into the Departments of Education and of Health and Human Services), arguing that it failed to restrain spending adequately.
What resolved it? Congress overrode Ford’s veto Oct. 1, so the spending bills took effect, but it wasn’t until over a week later that the partial shutdown ended, as it was only on Oct.11 that a continuing resolution ending funding gaps for other parts of government became law.

‘Worse Than Watergate’: Republicans
uncover FISA memo they say changes
everything on Trump investigation

January 19, 2018 |  |  Print Article
The Obama administration’s abuse of power has already been established.
If a FISA document uncovered by House investigators proves to be as bad as all appearances, the prior administration will stand accused of abusing federal law enforcement and intelligence assets in order to sabotage Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

The FISA court, established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, approves warrantless wiretapping and interception of communications; it is intended to empower federal agencies to prevent foreign powers from engaging in hostile acts against the United States, including espionage and terrorism.
As the FISA Act of 1978, and particularly section 702, cleared a House vote taking place last week and the Senate on Thursday, President Donald Trump has accused FISA of empowering Obama-era agencies to conduct surveillance on his presidential campaign communications.
Stormy Daniels gushes on pillow talk with Donald Trump, says she can describe the president’s ‘junk’
“‘House votes on controversial FISA ACT today.’ This is the act that may have been used, with the help of the discredited and phony Dossier, to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration and others?” Trump said in a tweet last week.
Did President Trump know about the existence of the FISA document now in the hands of House investigators? The document allegedly pertains to Fusion GPS’s role obtaining the highly suspect Steele dossier for the Democratic National Committee.

Recently, the former British spy Christopher Steele, the compiler of the Trump dossier, was referred by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Judiciary Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for criminal investigation.
“The classified report compiled by House Intelligence is deeply troubling and raises serious questions about the upper echelon of the Obama DOJ and Comey FBI as it relates to the so-called collusion investigation,” said Rep. Ron DeSantis.
“The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency. There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). A House Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Gaetz conducts oversight on the Department of Justice and the FBI.

“I think that this will not end just with firings. I believe there are people who will go to jail,” Gaetz later said on Fox News, referring to senior DOJ and FBI officials. “I think there will be criminal implications here.”   Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, agreed with his colleague Rep. Gaetz.   “It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Jordan told Fox News.
“It’s troubling. It is shocking,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) also told Fox News. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”

(Win McNamee/Getty Images)

“You think about, ‘is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is,” commented Rep. Scott Perry (R-VA).
Rep. DeSantis is spearheading a move to get the Top Secret FISA document declassified and available to the public.
“While the report is classified as Top Secret, I believe the select committee should, pursuant to House rules, vote to make the report publicly available as soon as possible. This is a matter of national significance and the American people deserve the truth,” he said.
“Rule X of the House Rules allows the select committee to publicly disclose any information in its possession after a determination by the select committee that the public interest would be served by such disclosure.”
As pointed out by Breitbart News, the declassification would have to clear the House intelligence committee before moving to the desk of President Trump, who would have five days to issue an objection. In the event of an objection, a debate would then take place in the House.
 An initiative is gathering momentum on social media to release the documents.

I was told by a congressional source that “roughly 50 to 60 Congressional members viewed the House Intelligence Committee #FISAabuse report” and many are calling to #ReleaseTheDocuments

— Sara A. Carter (@SaraCarterDC) January 19, 2018

Fox is told that while the Intel Cmte voted in favor of the Simpson transcript, Democrats blocked the release of other documents. The committee has also voted on a motion by Rep. Pete King (R-NY) to make available to all House members a memo documenting abuse of the FISA program.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) referred to the information contained in the memo as “worse than Watergate.”
“I have read the memo. The sickening reality has set in. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen. I have long said it is worse than Watergate,” he wrote.

Sarah Sanders Steps To Podium, Wipes Smirk Of Chuck Schumer’s Face With 7 Words

Sarah Sanders just held her daily press briefing and the jackals in the media were ready
to pounce. They went after Sarah early and often and Sarah kept the wolves at bay. (Video Below)

She is good, even the liberals have to admit that. Well, the honest ones at least.  The first line of questioning was about executive privilege and what the White House lawyers told Steve Bannon he could speak to Hill leaders about.  In case you missed it, White Lawyers claimed, which is their absolute right, executive privilege and Steve Bannon agreed to not speak to Congress about certain topics.
Kind of boring and then MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson tried her best to trap Sarah and make her look bad.
And, of course, the real goal is to make the boss, Donald Trump bad.  That is, or it certainly seems, to be the main job of the media these days – do whatever they can to damage President Trump.  Chuck Schumer is behind the scenes whispering to the media pushing his radical agenda. To put it bluntly, Chuck is all in on a government shutdown.  Chuck is happy to grind the federal government to a halt if he can score some cheap political points at Trump’s expense.
He wants DACA, not because he really believes in it, no Chuck knows if he does not get it done the Democrats chances in 2018 go to zero.   Obama promised a solution and came up well short and so now President Trump has to clean up the mess.  Chuck thinks he is still dealing with Obama but he is not and Trump will not cave to Chuck’s petty politics.  Chuck thinks if he shuts down the government Trump will get the blame. That is Chuck’s entire strategy – get Trump in a corner and blame him for whatever happens.
Won’t work, as Sarah just brilliantly explained, in fact, it will backfire.
“I am not sure how it would the President wants a budget deal – the budget deal should not be tied to a political agenda the Democrats are pushing….What we would like to see happen is let’s strike a budget deal by Friday and come back to work and solve DACA and border security.  The number one priority is national security and fully funding our military and I would think the Democrats share this? We need Democrats to do their jobs.”

WE NEED DEMOCRATS TO DO THEIR JOBS!

7 truer words have never been said, don’t you agree?
get to work Chuck or shut the heck up.

SENATOR DURBIN IS AN OUTRIGHT LIAR!!! Sen. Durbin has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings!

DHS CHIEF Comes Out Swinging: Claims Trump NEVER
Said “Sh*thole” in Meeting…She’s the Third Attendee to Claim it’s a Lie! [Video]

THIS IS ALL LOOKING LIKE A LIE AND A SET-UP FROM SENATOR DURBIN:
Appearing on Fox News Sunday yesterday, new DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen hit back at claims that President Trump used a vulgarity in the immigration meeting last week. Senators David Perdue and Tom Cotton released a statement making the same claim. We’re going with our first instinct when this story broke that it’s all a fabrication from the Democrats and RINO’s to try and destroy Trump’s efforts to get a bipartisan deal on DACA. Let’s face it, the Democrats never wanted a deal to begin with so this false narrative sets up a reason for them not to cooperate that is more executable than the one that they just don’t want anything BUT amnesty.
Republican Senators David Perdue and Tom Cotton (see below) were in the room during a White House meeting last week  to discuss immigration. They both shot down reports that President Trump used the term “shithole countries”:  “I’m telling you he did not use that word, George. And I’m telling you it’s a gross misrepresentation. How many times do you want me to say that?” Sen. David Perdue told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday.
“The gross misrepresentation was that language was used in there that was not used and also that the tone of that meeting was not contributory and not constructive,” he said.
DICK DURBIN IS A LIAR…
The Washington Post reported on the remarks later Thursday and Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin confirmed the president’s use of the language the next day.
WE TRUST TOM COTTON!

THE HILL NEWS ALERT

Republican leaders are facing their toughest challenge yet in keeping the government open, as lawmakers race to secure more money before current funding runs out at the end of the week.  Leadership was already going to have their work cut out for them in trying to corral frustrated defense hawks, skeptical conservatives and fired-up Democrats into supporting another continuing resolution (CR) to keep the government’s lights on.
But President Trump created new headaches for Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and his top lieutenants last week after the president rejected a bipartisan immigration deal and reportedly made explosive comments about “shithole countries,” throwing a wrench into broad negotiations on Capitol Hill.

Three people said Trump did not say what Sen Durbin stated he did about Sh**hole countries

Trump claims ‘Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented
what was said’ at DACA meeting

Trump claims 'Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said' at DACA meetingIn the face of ongoing backlash against President Trump’s reported “s—hole” comments during a bipartisan meeting on immigration last week, the president came out swinging on Monday afternoon by blasting one of his chief opponents in the Senate, Minority Whip Dick Durbin of Illinois.

“Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting,” Trump tweeted. “Deals can’t get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military.”
It’s unclear if the “Dicky” moniker will stick. The president has given derisive nicknames to many of his opponents, including presidential election rivals “Little Marco Rubio” and “Lyin’ Ted Cruz.”   A small group of Republicans and Democrats was in the closed-door meeting on Thursday at the White House, including Durbin and South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.
“Why are we having all these people from s—hole countries come here?” the president reportedly said, seemingly referring to people from Haiti, as well as some Central American and African countries. The president added that the U.S. should admit more people from countries like Norway.  Trump made the comments, sources said, as Durbin was reading a list of temporary protected status countries.
“I cannot believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday,” Durbin tweeted on Friday. “President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile, and racist. He used those words repeatedly.”   But Trump fought back against reports of the meeting, arguing on Jan. 12 that “the language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”
“Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country,” the president continued. “Never said ‘take them out.’ Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!”
The comments at the meeting sparked outcry from both Republicans and Democrats, prompting the president to counter claims that he is racist.  “I’m not a racist,” Trump said Sunday night to reporters. “I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed. That I can tell you.”  The president and Congress are attempting to reach a deal on comprehensive immigration reform as part of a federal spending bill that Congress must pass by Friday to avoid a government shutdown.
Trump and Congressional Republicans are seeking increased funds for border security and changes to the lottery and “chain migration” programs in exchange for providing permanent protection for “Dreamers” in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

THE HIGHLANDS TEA PARTY HONORS MARTIN LUTHER KING

Martin Luther King Jr., a Baptist minister, led the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s.
King, who was born in Atlanta on Jan. 15, 1929, led a 383 citywide bus boycott in Montgomery, Ala., in 1955.
 The African-American community eventually took the matter to court, citing the Brown v. Board of Education decision, which says “separate is never equal.” After a hard battle, the law mandating segregated transportation was lifted.
On Oct. 19, 1960, King and 75 students entered a local department store and requested lunch-counter service, but were denied. When they refused to leave the area, King and 36 others were arrested, according to Biography.com.
 It was one of many arrests for King, who was taken into police custody a total of 29 times throughout his life while playing an integral part in the movement.
King’s 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered in front of a crowd of 250,000 in Washington, is one of the most famous in history.   “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character,” he said in the speech.
The following year, at age 35, King won the Nobel Peace Prize, becoming the youngest person to achieve the feat.   In his acceptance speech, he said, “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.”
On April 3, 1968, King gave his final speech, “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” in Memphis, Tenn.    “I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we, as a people, will get to the promised land,” he said.
The next day, as he stood on a balcony outside his room at the Lorraine Motel, he was shot by a sniper.   James Earl Ray was later arrested for King’s murder after a two-month, international manhunt. He was later sentenced to 99 years after pleading guilty.
King’s assassin died in prison in 1998.

What if Illegals were Republicans?

The only reason Dems want illegals is so they can get their vote !

Swiss: No more citizenship to refugees on welfare

European migrants

Asylum seekers and migrants who have received welfare over the past three years will no longer be granted citizenship in Switzerland – unless they pay the state back.  Regardless of whether or not Muslim refugees living off government handouts have been permanent residents in Switzerland during the time needed to apply for citizenship, it will not be possible for them to become official Swiss citizens without returning the money, according to a report published by Kronen Zeitung.

Give back, don’t just take

The enforcement of a new Swiss civil rights act is cracking down on the European nation’s refugee crisis that has been draining state funds for years.  “The previous law allowed migrants to apply for citizenship as long as they were not on state benefits at the time of their application,” Breitbart News reported.  Besides working to save Swiss taxpayers money, the new regulations are geared to deter Muslim refugees from isolating themselves in enclaves while making no attempts to assimilate to Swiss culture.
“Along with the welfare stipulation, the new act requires migrants to demonstrate a greater level of integration than before – including making them prove they have a certain number of Swiss friends and acquaintances,” Breitbart’s Chris Tomlinson explained. “Language requirements vary by canton, with most expecting an intermediate level of language proficiency judged on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) …”

Cracking down on fake IDs

The flood of immigrants into Switzerland has overwhelmed the Swiss government, which admitted that it has no clue about the true identities of a whopping 90 percent of asylum seekers entering the nation.

Soros Plans to Buy Florida’s Gubernatorial Election, Funding Is Staggering

Left-wing billionaire George Soros and his son, Alex Soros, handed over a quarter million dollars to their leftist candidate of choice to get him elected as governor of Florida. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is the happy recipient.

George and Alex Soros are residents of New York but their goal is to control the elections throughout the country to turn the United States into a permanent Progressive one-party nation.  George Soros is influencing elections at the local, state, national and international levels. He is also influencing district attorney races, like the one in Philadelphia where a hard-left looney DA just fired a third of his staff so he can create his utopian law enforcement agency. There are many others and Soros’s leftists win many of the races.
via Daily Caller:
In one such instance, Soros poured $600,000 into the Houston district attorney’s race last fall. Soros initially gave $100,000 to Morris Overstreet, a former judge who was the first African-American elected to a statewide office in Texas history. Overstreet’s Democratic primary opponent, Kim Ogg, called Soros’ influx of cash “a last-minute money dump to try to buy the nomination.” Ogg won the Democratic primary and later the general election, thanks in part to her own last-minute money dump from Soros, who spent $500,000 on ads supporting Ogg.
Soon after she was sworn in, Ogg moved to decriminalize small amounts of marijuana, placing her at odds with U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ call for stricter enforcement of the nation’s drug laws.  Soros spent more than $7 million influencing local prosecutorial races in 2015 and 2016, The Washington Times reported.   Soros and his family have a plan to use mass migration and transformation of religious congregations to create his permanent Progressive majority. It’s part of his plan for a “New America.”
Soros is behind control of the media, social media, and affecting elections on the local, state, national level to transform the country into a Permanent Progressive Majority. There is no question social media is censoring all of the right out of existence.    He used Black Lives Matter to do his bidding. A leaked memo shows he wants a federal police force and Black Lives Matter is his key to accomplishing that.   In leaked emails, the Soros minions at Open Society Foundations admit they are “poised to create a permanent Progressive majority”.
Progressives are “poised to take over every level of government” and if their candidate is elected, the United States will be unrecognizable at the end of four years. The Obama legacy was to have Hillary continue turning us into a statist nation without a Bill of Rights. The delete keys have been pressed on the First and Second Amendments for the last decade and the statists have been open about it.
As we can see in Email 10547, the Progressives will create a robust media echo chamber.  They “seek a permanent Progressive infrastructure” that will break “through the clutter of the modern media environment with a Progressive message which requires repetition of common themes from different sources organized by a central apparatus–that is the organizing task of Progressive Media.”
The Progressives will become the core requiring all others to repeat their message over and over.
They often leave no fingerprints.

A Clinton-appointed federal judge just ordered Trump to keep DACA

Webmaster Comment;

DACA was illegal & done via executive fiat by Barack Obama? The Fifth Circuit Court ruled the Obama DACA executive order illegal; it was then taken to the Supreme court who refused to act on it, therefore by law the Circuit court ruling is the law. How can the 9th district court overrule this, they do not stand above the Supreme court or any other District Court.?

A federal judge in California ordered the Trump administration to maintain the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program late Tuesday, an Obama-era amnesty policy that extends legal status to 700,000 illegal aliens who arrived in the U.S. as children.
 The ruling could ensures DACA’s security as President Donald Trump attempts to reach an immigration deal with Democratic lawmakers. The program was scheduled to phase out in March.   Judge William Alsup, a Bill Clinton appointee, issued the ruling.
“Tonight’s order doesn’t change the Department of Justice’s position on the facts: DACA was implemented unilaterally after Congress declined to extend these benefits to this same group of illegal aliens,” said Justice Department spokesman Devin O’Malley. “As such, it was an unlawful circumvention of Congress, and was susceptible to the same legal challenges that effectively ended DAPA.”
 “The Justice Department will continue to vigorously defend this position, and looks forward to vindicating its position in further litigation,” he added.  The administration justified DACA’s termination on separation of powers grounds, arguing only Congress could authorize such a program.  Alsup strongly rejected this view, pointing to a 2014 Justice Department memo purporting to show that DACA’s features are rooted in Supreme Court case law or related powers granted by Congress.
Since Alsup concluded the program’s rescission was based on a flawed legal premise, he said the action was “arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion, [and] otherwise not in accordance with law.”  Alsup further noted that Trump himself has determined DACA serves the public interest, citing two Sept. 2017 tweets in which the president expressed support for so-called “Dreamers.”  “We seem to be in the unusual position wherein the ultimate authority over the agency, the chief executive, publicly favors the very program the agency has ended,” the judge wrote.
The order does not require the administration to process new DACA applications, and allows law enforcement to remove any DACA recipient believed to pose a threat to national security or public safety.  The Trump administration can ask the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to review Alsup’s decision.  The University of California system brought the suit challenging DACA’s termination. The system is led by Janet Napolitano, the former secretary of Homeland Security who presided over DACA’s original promulgation during the Obama administration.
 The ruling can be viewed here.

Group will mobilize grassroots to promote DPC as commons sense health care reform

Tallahassee, FL – Americans for Prosperity-Florida (AFP-FL), the state’s leading grassroots advocacy organization for common sense health care reform, has launched a new direct mail campaign highlighting the benefits of direct primary care. The mailer calls on constituents to contact their legislators and ask them to support two bills that would allow individuals and businesses to pay physicians directly for routine care: SB 80, introduced by Senator Tom Lee, along with its companion measure introduced by Representative Burgess, HB 37. AFP-FL is also encouraging activists to contact their elected officials to support these bills through a targeted digital campaign.

Bill HB 9“will enforce the rule of law,” Elected officials cannot uphold the rule of law and support sanctuary cities at the same time.

House Speaker vows to pass ‘sanctuary city’ ban bill on week 1 of Session

On week one of Session, House Speaker Richard Corcoran is determined to pass a bill that would penalize local officials who support the passage of so-called “sanctuary city” policies.
The bill “will enforce the rule of law,” Corcoran tweeted Tuesday.
 State Rep. Larry Metz, a Lake County Republican, championed an identical bill that passed the Florida House in the last week of Session. The same effort, however, went nowhere in the Senate.  House leadership has made it a priority to push through the bill this Session, but whether history will repeat itself in the Senate remains to be seen.  Republican Sens. Aaron Bean of Fernandina Beach and Greg Steube of Sarasota are leading the charge in their chamber to pass a similar proposal to the one in the House.
The Senate bill has been referred to two committees, but no hearings have been scheduled yet. The first stop would be the Judiciary Committee, chaired by Steube.   The controversial proposals have received pushback from DACA recipients, immigrant advocates, undocumented immigrants, who fear banning communities that act as “sanctuaries” for undocumented immigrants would make crimes that occur to them harder to report.
But Republicans who support the effort, including Corcoran, argue that elected officials cannot uphold the rule of law and support sanctuary cities at the same time. Corcoran has said that if they do support such policies, they should be removed from office.  HB 9 states that police chiefs, sheriff or mayors in communities that honor these policies — currently there are none in Florida — are to be fined or removed from office.
If the bill becomes law, the move would have an “indeterminate” financial burden on local communities. The bill does not guarantee reimbursement for the costs that come from fully complying with federal immigration authorities. That includes the price of holding inmates in county jails past their sentences so that immigration authorities can come pick them up for deportation.  Democrats opposed the measure last Session saying such a law would face constitutional hurdles because it could violate a person’s right to due process.
Corcoran, who is very likely to run for governor and is expected to announce once Session is over, is in support of hard-line immigration policies. He has vowed to pass the sanctuary city bill and praised President Donald Trump for ending protections for Dreamers.   “At the end of the day, I will always err on the side of our citizens and defending the rule of law,” the Land O’Lakes Republican wrote on his website.

Sanctuary cities are a threat to the safety of our communities. On week one of session the Florida House will pass a bill that will enforce the rule of law.
