Image result for rest in Peace posters

It is with sadness in my heart to report that we lost
two of very regular members this past Saturday
Nick and Beverly DeSanta.

The news is in the Highlands News Sun they were
hit and killed by a drunk driver.

 A Sebring couple, trying to cross a road Saturday evening during
a visit to Treasure Island, they were going from the hotel
to their car when they were struck by a driver who
did not stop to help.

Paramedics from Treasure Island Fire Rescue took 80-year-old
Beverly J. Gran and 74-year-old Nicholas Michael DeSanta to a
nearby hospital, where they later died from their injuries. Officers with
Treasure Island Police Department later found the driver — 38-year-old
Aleem Reezan Temon Hamid of Lake O’Lakes— less than a mile away
at 1 Park Place, behind the wheel of his 2014 Ford Explorer.

Is the border children “crisis” dinging President Trump’s job approval numbers? With the left and its media allies in full cry, his job approval fell to 46% for the last two days of the week, his lowest numbers since March.
Over 20 years after the fact, the #MeToo movement finally caught up to former President Bill Clinton when he sat down for a recent interview with NBC’s Craig Melvin, who asked him if would have handled the Monica Lewinsky scandal any differently in hindsight.

Bob Goodlatte,   Raúl Labrador

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE

 

Michael McCaul,             Martha McSally
HOUSE HOMELAND SECURITY COMMITTEE

Securing-Americas-Future-Act-Final

First real bill we have seen in over 12 years that
really puts enforcement into the immigration system!

TWITTER BLAST TO THE 41 RINO’S THAT VOTED WITH THE DEMOCRATS TO STOP THE GOODLATE BILL H.R.7630

       
The House of Representatives successfully killed a conservative immigration bill Thursday afternoon, setting the stage for a potential vote on Speaker Paul Ryan’s “compromise” package that could provide a pathway to citizenship for the nation’s ‘Dreamers.’ up to 2.4 million,
Way beyond the Goodlatte bill of 700,000, no real changes in border enforcement in fact probably open borders as Ryan is attempting to appease the Koch Brothers, K Street, U.S Chamber of Commerce, and the No Border Democrats.

Plus Ryan on his way out wants stick Trump in the back!

The House shot-down the measure authored by Rep. Bob Goodlatte and Michael McCaul by a vote of 193-231, with 41 GOP legislators voting against the measure.
Ryan’s second bill (the first bill was not Ryan’s, it was Goodlatte’s) was scheduled for a vote on the House floor Thursday, but is now being delayed to Friday or beyond as the GOP leader struggles to secure enough votes to pass the much-needed legislation. (Ryan is going after the republican turncoats who voted down the Goodlatte bill, the only one with any teeth in it).
Had it passed, Goodlatte’s bill would have provided legal status to 700,000 DACA recipients, ended the Visa lottery, ended Chain Migration,added additional 10,000 border agents, instituted mandatory E-Verify system to ensure workers were in the country legally, and a whole lot more..

RYAN IS OUT TO GET
PRESIDENT TRUMP
ON HIS WAY OUT!

TRUMP STOPS CONGRESS FAT CAT STEAK COOK OUT

Trump Takes Away Congress’ Annual Ribeye ‘Picnic’, Sends Steaks To…
By Andrew West  June 22, 2018
Donald Trump is a President unlike any that we have seen in our lifetimes, and for reasons that are just beyond comprehension for the career politicos who’ve only known the grooming of the Beltway.   Trump is, as I’ve said before, a Citizen President – a man with no prior political experience, at least in the literal sense of the word.  There’s no doubt that The Donald knows his way around a state or federal building – that comes with the territory of being a ruthless and successful real estate investor – but there hasn’t ever been a Congressman Trump or Councilman Trump.
No, we got the CEO-in-Chief instead, and it has done wonders for our economy.

Latest: Trump Takes Away Congress’ Annual Ribeye ‘Picnic’, Sends Steaks To…

Six months ago today, President Trump signed into law the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the historic legislation that streamlined our tax code and offered much needed tax relief to the American people. Since passage of the bill, the once in a generation tax overhaul championed by President Trump and Republicans in Congress has already provided numerous benefits and an even brighter future for the American people.

Gone is the outdated system that took too much of our money, sent our jobs overseas, and stagnated our economy. Individuals are now seeing thousands of dollars in tax relief and bigger paychecks. Families are benefitting from a doubling of the standard deduction and child tax credit. Lower taxes on businesses of all sizes are stimulating our economy. Americans are feeling the effects of a reinvigorated economy.

More than four million people are receiving bonuses, benefit increases, and higher wages from hundreds of companies, totaling some $4 billion back into the pockets of the working class. Companies like Apple, Comcast, Boeing, and Bank of America have given workers across the country bonuses, in addition to pledging new investments into our national economy. Many more small businesses have done the same in their communities by growing their operations and hiring more people.

Now, however, another piece of the humanist in President Trump is showing through, as a debate over Congress’ ineffectual work on immigration rages.  You see, today was supposed to be the annual congressional “picnic”, which is literally just a 5-star meal served in a tent to these Washington fat cats.  Seeing the disparity between Congress’ work load and their free lunch is disheartening enough for me…can you imagine how our “America First” President felt?
Well, there’s no need to speculate, as the Commander in Chief has given us an answer.
That’s right:  cancelled.  When asked why, the President gave a very blue collar answer.
As the immigration debacle looms large over the halls of Congress, President Donald Trump decided to scrap the lawmakers’ annual congressional picnic at the White House because it just didn’t feel “right.”   “I was just walking over to the Oval Office and I said, ‘You know, it doesn’t feel right to have a picnic for Congress when we’re working on doing something very important,’” Trump said Wednesday, according to Politico. “It didn’t feel exactly right to me.”

BIKER TO THE RESCUE

 A little girl leaning into a lion’s cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the collar of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.
A biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings the girl to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event.
The reporter, addressing the Harley rider says, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and bravest thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.
The Harley rider replies, ‘Why, it was nothing, really. The lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right.’  The reporter says, ‘Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, you know, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page. So, what do you do for a living, and what political affiliation do you have?’
The biker replies “I’m a U.S. Marine, a Republican and I voted for Trump”.   The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions and reads on the front page:
** U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT & STEALS HIS LUNCH. **
And THAT pretty much sums up the media’s approach to the news these days.

CAN’T ARGUE WITH FACTS!

STOPPING THE VOLCANO IN HAWAII – POLITICAL HUMOR

Stopping the Volcano in Hawaii

The subject of stopping the Hawaiian volcano has come up, and those folks are looking for a solution to the havoc and destruction it has caused on the island.

According to ancient Hawaiian tradition, the quickest way to APPEASE PELE and have the volcanic fires stop is to make a human sacrifice into her fires.  And according to tradition, the human sacrifice needs to be a celebrated leader who was born in Hawaii and held a position of power for 8 years.

After an inquiry was made, Obama quickly announced that he was actually born in Kenya, and “has the Birth Certificate to prove it”!

BRAVO FOR TRUMP

Trump calls CNN ‘fake news’ after reporter asks him question at G-7

 

President Trump slammed CNN as “fake news” after a reporter with the news organization asked him a question during a press briefing at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit.  After the reporter asked Trump a question about tensions between him and other leaders at the G-7 summit, the president asked what network he was from.
“Who are you with out of curiosity?” Trump asked the reporter, who replied that he was from CNN.  “I figured,” Trump said. “Fake News CNN. The worst.”
Trump then began to say that he “could tell by the question,” before clarifying that he did not previously know the reporter’s affiliation.   “I have no idea you’re with CNN,” he said. “After the question I was just curious as to who you’re with, you’re with CNN.”    He then answered the reporter’s question, defending his relationship with the other leaders of top industrialized nations present at the summit in Canada.
“I would say that the level of the relationship is a 10. We have a great relationship — Angela [Merkel] and Emmanuel [Macron] and Justin [Trudeau]. I would say the relationship is a 10,” he said, referring to leaders from Germany, France and Canada, respectively.   Trump blasted leaders ahead of the summit over the intensifying trade battles, after he imposed steep tariffs on steel and aluminum affecting allies Canada, Mexico and the European Union.
He has also faced criticism over his calls to reinstate Russia into the group. Russia was suspended from the then-Group of Eight over the 2014 annexation of Crimea.    The president is planning to leave the G-7 summit early to depart for Singapore, where he will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday.    The president has been highly critical of CNN throughout his presidency, pushing back on negative coverage and referring to the network as “fake news.”

The U.S. House this week passed legislation with my strong support cracking down on violent gangs like MS-13. See the article below and let me know your thoughts.

House Passes Bill Authorizing $50M To Fight MS-13, Organized Crime
Legislation to fight the nation’s most notorious street gangs is heading to President Trump’s desk for his signature.
House lawmakers overwhelmingly passed the Project Safe Neighborhoods Grant Program Authorization Act Wednesday.
The measure seeks to fight MS-13 and other gangs by improving partnerships between federal, state and local agencies.
The Justice Department will authorize $50 million to be allocated to gang task forces.

Representative Bob Goodlatte said the bill specifically operates under four key principles, which include partnerships, strategic planning, training and outreach.

“Strategic planning is the foundation of the Project Neighborhoods Safer Program,” he stated. “Moreover, HR 3249 promotes the robust enforcement of existing criminal laws, and the development of intervention and prevention programs, such as juvenile justice projects and activities including street-level outreach conflict mediation and social services.”

Goodlatte went on to say, the legislation will serve as a key force in combating gang violence.

DON’T LET THE DEMOCRATS HAVE THE CONGRESS AND PRESIDENCY IN 2020

The most assured way to deliver Democrats control of Congress in 2019 is for the Republican establishment to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. Contact your Congressman and tell them to “STOP AMNESTY AT ALL COSTS!” Capitol switchboard: ☎️ (202) 224-3121

IF you don’t want to call follows the information below and tweet

In the following frame are theTweet addresses and message for 22 Republicans who have stated they will support RINO Ryans discharge petition.This petition could grant amnesty to anywhere from 3-8 Million illegals in country, it will also open the door for millions more to come to the border because we have not secured the border or changed our laws.

If any bill is to be voted on, it should be a stand alone Goodlatte bill, and only for amnesty of 600,000 DACA after vetting., None with Felon convictions, have dropped out of High School, or cannot speak fluent English, or affiliated with any gangs allowed.
Here is what’s in the Goodlatte bill: 
  1. Eliminates Chain Migration, would provide $30 billion to build a wall
  2. Invest in new technology
  3. Modernize and expand ports of entry.
  4. Additional 5,000 Border Patrol agents 
  5. Additional 5,000 Customs and Border Protection officers
  6. Full implementation of the biometric entry-exit system
  7. Authorize the National Guard to provide aviation and intelligence support.
  8. Allow DACA beneficiaries to receive a three-year renewable legal status
  9. No new or special path to citizenship for these individuals in our bill
  10. Ends “catch and release,”
  11. Battle asylum fraud
  12. Require that unaccompanied minors caught at the border be treated equally regardless of their home country.
  13. Will ensure that the law no longer tempts minors and their parents to make the dangerous illegal journey to the U.S.-or to line the pockets of cartels that make a business of supporting these journeys.
  14. Cracking down on people who overstay their visas, 
  15.  Requires employers to use the accurate and hugely successful E-Verify system to ensure that they hire only legal workers
  16. would stop the Diversity Visa program,
    GoodLatte Statement: 

    I would not be willing to give people who entered the country illegally a special pathway to citizenship. That would put them ahead of people who have gone through the long legal process to enter this country.”

LET’S GIT’ER DONE TODAY!!!

Will ‘Hurricane Trump’ Impact GOP Gubernatorial Race in FL?

A “political hurricane,” named after a famous Palm Beach and White House resident, is currently swirling off Florida’s coast and scheduled to make landfall on Aug. 28 — the state’s primary day.   Yes, “Hurricane Trump” is central to a contentious Republican gubernatorial primary race between Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis from the 6th Congressional District, which encompasses Daytona Beach.
Just how central?
Trump’s involvement is shaping up to be a political strength test for the 2018 midterms with national implications for the 2020 presidential election.   Lest you think I am exaggerating, let’s start on Dec. 22, 2017, when Hurricane Trump’s “category 5” winds first started blowing from Air Force One after the president tweeted:

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump
Amazingly, Trump’s endorsement of DeSantis came two weeks before the conservative congressman officially announced on Jan. 5, 2018 that he was seeking the Republican nomination for governor.
DeSantis not only embraced Trump’s endorsement, but the three-term lawmaker’s entire campaign was baptized in Trump water. That has resulted in the Putnam/DeSantis primary fight for Republican base voters, which revolves around which candidate is more “Trumpian” — a clear disadvantage for Putnam, who was characterized last week as a “Trump-basher”  in a RealClearPolitics op-ed.
On the other hand, Putnam, a Florida congressman between 2001 and 2011 who has served in the powerful agriculture post since 2011, is the well-funded “establishment” candidate. He had been planning his gubernatorial campaign for many pre-Trump years, working diligently within the state, building loyalty and collecting IOUs. Putnam is also well-known and liked in Florida GOP circles.
As an active registered Republican in the state, I can attest to the longtime buzz that   Putnam was “the man” who would be the nominee to succeed Republican Gov. Rick Scott, and without much opposition. But, since Trump’s endorsement last December, DeSantis has dramatically increased his name ID among base voters, achieving political rock-star status due to his frequent appearances on Fox News Channel while providing “cable catnip” to Trump-loyal viewers.
In fact, Trump recently called DeSantis one of his four GOP “warriors” who regularly go to “battle” for him on Capitol Hill and in the media against Robert Mueller and the Russia probe.   Back in Florida, the race is virtually tied and a long way from settled. According to the latest Florida Atlantic University poll, DeSantis leads Putnam by a percentage point, 16 percent to 15 percent, among registered Republican voters, with 43 percent undecided.
Conversely, in the money primary, Putnam is winning by a landslide. His May totals are not yet available, but by April’s end he had raised a total of $28.85 million from big traditional Florida money sources and had $19 million in cash on hand.   DeSantis made significant progress after raising $3 million in May, but still lags far behind Putman. At the end of April, DeSantis had raised only $8 million, with $7 million on hand, so May’s haul shows great promise.   Comparing the opening lines from both DeSantis’s and Putnam’s end-of-May fundraising emails speaks volumes about the branding and positioning differences between the two campaigns.
DeSantis opened his May 31 email by writing:
Friend,
After publicly supporting me for governor, President Trump now calls me to check and see how our campaign is doing.
To be honest with you — at this moment — we’re behind on our end-of-month goal. I don’t want to have to pick up the phone and tell the President that we failed to hit our goal.
Then DeSantis followed up on June 2 with this opening:
Friend,
The liberal media is attacking me for defending President Trump.  But they don’t understand that I’m not just defending the President. I’m defending you.
Putnam’s May 30 email began:
Friend, 
One of our generous donors has stepped up this month to MATCH all donations through MIDNIGHT before the end of month.
This is your chance to DOUBLE your impact on one of the most important races in the country. Democrats are using Florida as a political pawn to take back the presidency in 2020, and we can’t let that happen.
Thus, while DeSantis is glued to the “Trump ticket,” Putnam is looking past November’s general election to 2020 — subtly insinuating that he will be the Republican governor to fight for Florida’s 29 electoral votes — the key to a GOP victory.
In my discussions with influential Florida Republicans, many say that they like DeSantis but think Putnam would be a stronger general election candidate, believing he is better positioned to attract independent voters. Despite the ongoing efforts of anti-NRA activists, led by Parkland shooting survivors who recently wreaked havoc on Putnam’s campaign in the “Gunshine State,” the following political facts support such thinking:
Scott won re-election in 2014 by only one percentage point in a strong Republican wave year.
Trump won Florida in 2016 by only 1.2 percentage points.
In the May FAU poll cited earlier, Trump’s Florida job approval rating among all registered voters is 43 percent, up from 41 percent in February.
Trump’s Florida disapproval stands at 45 percent, up from 44 percent in February.  Among Florida registered Republicans, Trump’s job approval jumps to 62 percent, with 10.3 percent disapproving and 22.7 percent neutral.
Among Florida’s registered independent voters, only 24.8 percent approve of Trump, with 33.9 percent disapproving.
A huge X-factor in the August primary is whether or not Trump will hit the Florida campaign trail with DeSantis. In mid-May, the New York Times reported  that Vice President Mike Pence had asked Trump not to campaign with his favorite Florida “warrior.” That was well after April 3 when DeSantis publicly said, “I think the president’s going to come down for me very soon. Which will be very good.”   However, the congressman is still waiting for the president. Then it was recently announced that Donald Trump Jr. would campaign with DeSantis in late June. Perhaps Trump listened to Pence — at least for now.
With such a close race in a key state, if DeSantis loses the August primary, Trump runs the risk of suffering political embarrassment with national repercussions just as the fall campaigns enter the stretch run. This, of course, is why presidents don’t normally endorse primary candidates.
But Trump is a risk taker, and DeSantis is a brilliant young candidate with a bright national future who Trump may think is worth the risk. Furthermore, Trump may want to test his political strength in the state to see if he can push DeSantis over the primary finish line. If successful, that would be a great psychological victory for Trump and his base, not only in Florida but around the nation — a sign that he has once again triumphed over the GOP “establishment.”
Politics, like the weather, is unpredictable, but this we know  — “Hurricane Trump” is either going to land with great force, make big waves for Ron DeSantis and drown Adam Putnam. Or, Putnam wins the primary, the hurricane fizzles and quietly tries to sneak out to sea. Check the local Florida forecasts on Aug. 28 and then wait for the national damage assessment.

At SCOTUS, a Make or Bake Moment

It doesn’t seem that long ago when I sat down with CBS’s “Face the Nation” and told a very surprised Bob Schieffer about the battle for religious freedom that was raging. Like many people, he seemed astonished to hear that any American — let alone the wedding industry — would be punished for their mainstream views on marriage.

THE HILL NEWS ALERT

Trump’s ‘pardon’ storm grows deeper

President Trump and his legal team are doubling down on their assertion of nearly unconfined presidential powers when it comes to the Justice Department and special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into the 2016 presidential election.

Critics, both in politics and the media, have accused Trump and his team of asserting a Nixonian defense that in essence posits that the president is above the law. They argue the Trump team’s approach could trigger a constitutional crisis, if the president follows through on the war of words.

THE HILL OVERNIGHT DEFENSE

 

 

The Hill’s Overnight Defense | View in your browser

Happy Monday and welcome to Overnight Defense. I’m Rebecca Kheel, and here’s your nightly guide to the latest developments at the Pentagon, on Capitol Hill and beyond.
 THE TOPLINE: With President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s summit back on, Senate Democrats are staking out their ground on any deal that may come out of the meeting.  In a letter to Trump and a conference call with reporters Monday, top Democrats laid out the five principles they want a deal to meet and vowed to prevent Trump from lifting sanctions should the agreement not be up to snuff.   “We’re all hoping the president will succeed and rooting for peace,” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on the call. “If he tries to reach a deal with Kim Jong Un just for the sake of reaching a deal, and the agreement fails to live up the principles we’ve laid out, then he’ll have been bested at the negotiating table yet again.”
Democrats defined a good deal as meeting five pillars:
(1) the dismantlement or relinquishing of all nuclear, chemical and biological weapons;
(2) the end to uranium and plutonium enrichment and the dismantlement of nuclear infrastructure;
(3) the continued suspension of ballistic missile tests;
(4) the ability to conduct inspections for nuclear and missile activity anytime anywhere in North Korea, as well as the ability to snap back sanctions if illicit activity is found; and
(5) the assurance that the deal would be permanent.
 Expert take: In a briefing to reporters later Monday, a panel of experts cautioned that including areas such as chemical and biological weapons with the nuclear issue could make it impossible to reach any deal.
  • “Democrats are sort of staking out the Republican view of the past,” said Joel Wit, founder of 38 North. “What I would say is, quite frankly, is that this is a historic opportunity… and in trying to pull it off, we need to be measured and careful about what our standards are for success. If you’re going to set a standard for success in terms of an agreement that somehow deals with chemical and biological weapons, you’re not going to have a success because they’re not going to be dealt with right away.”
  • Added Suzanne DiMaggio, director and senior fellow at New America: “The Democrats’ message must be careful because if they put in place a situation where the demands for a deal are outside the realm of possibility then that would undermine their own position. On the issue of chemical and biological weapons, in my discussions with North Korean officials over the past two years, they have been very consistent on the idea of tackling these issues fairly early if negotiations were to come up quickly. Not solving the issue, but trying to find ways at least of not– providing assurances that they will not transfer chemical and biological weapons, which I think is a great worry for some people. So I think that would be a logical start.”
 What about U.S. troops?: Defense Secretary James Mattis sought to make clear over the weekend that U.S. troops stationed on the Korean peninsula are not on the table for the negotiations with the North.   Mattis on Sunday said the roughly 28,000 U.S. troops based in South Korea are “not going anywhere.”   “It’s not even a subject of the discussions,” Mattis told reporters aboard his plane while returning to Washington from the Shangri-la Dialogue in Singapore.  
Pencil it in: White House press secretary Huckabee Sanders said Monday that the first meeting of the summit would start at 9 a.m. June 12 Singapore time. That’s 9 p.m. on June 11 Washington time.
