Those judiciary wins are extremely significant considering how judges don’t seem to be concerned about the Constitution anymore and look to foreign law and “precedent” in many of their rulings.   However, numbers from a report by Hamas-CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) in coordination with JETPAC indicates that a high percentage of Muslims voted in 2018.

The report claims:

 • 97 % of Muslim voters participated in this year’s midterm election.
• 88% of Muslim voters primarily voted for the Democratic Party candidates and 17% for Republican Party candidates.
• 56% of Muslim voters consider themselves liberal on social issues, while 26 % consider themselves conservative.
 33% of Muslim voters consider themselves fiscally conservative, while 5 0% consider themselves liberal.
26% of Muslim voters who primarily voted for Democratic candidates perceived themselves as being conservative on social issues. Moreover, 36% perceived themselves as being fiscally conservative.
• 78% of Muslim voters thought Islamophobia and anti-Muslim sentiment in the U.S. increased while 17% thought it decreased in the past year.
 88% of Muslim voters who primarily voted for Democratic Party candidates thought Islamophobia increased in the past year. Conversely, only 33% of Muslim voters who primarily voted for Republican Party candidates thought Islamophobia increased in the past year.
53% of Muslim voters became more interested in politics since the 2016 presidential election, while 34% maintained the same level of interest in politics and 13% became less interested in politics.
• 65% of Muslim voters have become more actively involved in politics and/or civically engaged since the 2016 presidential election, while 2 5% have not.
Out of those Muslim voters who have become more actively involved in politics and/or civically engaged since 2016 presidential election:
• 50% have primarily donated money to a political or social campaign.
• 55% have primarily donated their time by volunteering with a local charity or civic-minded or religious organization.
• 48% have primarily donated their expertise by using their skills and/or network to advance social/political engagement.
• 27% have primarily been involved in another way.
High birth rates account for 96 percent of Islam’s growth; forced conversions account for an additional 3 percent. The Muslim birth rate is 3.1 children per female of child-bearing age, compared to 1.7 for non-Muslim females — and Muslim men may keep up to four wives at a time. While Muslim populations are exploding, birth control and abortion in western countries are driving non-Muslim populations into extinction.

If you don’t think they have an agenda to conform America to Islam, you really do need to pull your head out of the sand.

The next two years will be a nightmare from hell. The 2019 House will be run by the socialist Democrats with Nancy Pelosi at the helm until at least 2020. The Republican Senate will not stop the Democrat efforts to destroy our President and his campaign promises.

Establishment Republicans Thwart Our President’s Promises

The 1928 Republican Convention opened with a prayer. If the Lord can see His way clear to bless the Republican Party the way it’s been carrying on, then the rest of us ought to get it without even asking. —Will Rogers
McConnell’s the Senate Republican leader, but he refuses to lead on defunding Obamacare. What good is a leader like that? —Matt Bevin
The Republican Party’s typical position is to preemptively surrender whenever liberals start yelling ‘Oh that’s mean. You can’t use that word’: ‘Oh I did not realize that ‘The New York Times’ made a finding that the term ‘anchor baby’ is offensive. Henceforth I shall not use it.’ —Ann Coulter
If you believe the Republican held Senate will help President Trump stop the leftist onslaught from Speaker Pelosi’s Democrat held House, dream on.

The Neo-Cons and Kingmakers

A majority of Republicans front for America’s enemies.  Why?  Because 90 to 95 percent of them belong to the same globalist cabal as the Democrat party socialists.
John McManus’s book, William F. Buckley: Pied Piper for the Establishment thoroughly explains the destruction of old right conservative Republicans by Buckley, a CFR member, CIA agent, and Skull and Bones member.  Dubbed the Godfather of neoconservatism, Irving Kristol, a longtime Trotskyite, was Buckley’s partner in crime. Irving was the father of Bill Kristol whose anti-Trump magazine, the Weekly Standard, finally closed.  Link
Buckley advocated the legalization of marijuana, approved the Panama Canal giveaway, repeatedly called for national service for youth, smeared Pat Buchanan, pushed for foreign aid giveaways to Russia, favored legalized prostitution, supported adoption of the Brady Bill gun control measure, and endorsed “gay rights” legislation.  Seems as though if you have built a reputation as a conservative, you can get away with being as liberal as you want.
Journalist Irving Kristol published the magazine, Encounter, which received covert funding from the Central Intelligence Agency after the CIA and MI6 discussed the founding of an “Anglo-American left-of-center publication.
Phyllis Schlafly understood the destruction only too well when she wrote A Choice Not an Echo regarding the Rockefeller “Kingmakers.”
Like John Birch Society’s President Emeritus, John McManus, Schlafly accused “the secret kingmakers” of the Republican party of constantly undermining conservative champions like Robert Taft and Barry Goldwater and using back-door deals to ensure the victory of compromising candidates like Wendell Willkie and Dwight Eisenhower.  Neo-cons Buckley and Kristol along with the Rockefeller Republicans have stabbed us in the back.

The Wall

Regarding the southern border wall funding, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already refused to use the nuclear option where a simple majority is enough, rather than the required 60 votes.  Senate Majority Leader McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao make millions through Chao’s father who owns a Chinese shipping company, so McConnell has no desire to help Trump in any fashion.
Republican Sens. Jeff Flake (AZ) and Lamar Alexander (TN) immediately announced that they would not vote for the nuclear option.  Both are Trotskyites (slow Marxists). Link  Alexander is retiring, but his good friend, our corrupt Tennessee Republican Governor Bill Haslam, who refused to vote for Trump, will run for Alexander’s spot and retain it for dozens of years, once again giving no support to old right conservatives.
Harry Reid certainly had no trouble using the Nuclear Option in 2013 to fill district courts with Obama’s nominees, those same judges who now stop every executive order by President Trump to protect American citizens from invaders.
Transnational criminal gangs pose an immediate clear and present danger to the security of the homeland and its communities. Gangs are involved in a myriad of criminal activity, including murder, extortion, narcotics and weapons trafficking, human smuggling/trafficking and prostitution and other crimes with a nexus to the border.
The government spends $5.9 billion per month on food stamps.  Four and a quarter months of food stamp expenditures would pay the entire $25 billion for the Mexican border wall.  Why is this not in the budget?  Because the false friends on the right will not support our President and the protection of the American citizenry.
Thanks to socialist judges, officials with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency released nearly 1600 migrants in downtown El Paso over the 2018 Christmas holiday.

Obamacare

Talk show host, Tucker Carlson has attacked President Trump for failing to build the wall, failing to defund Planned Parenthood and failing to rid us of Obamacare.  Carlson does not understand the Constitution, that it is up to Congress not the President to make these changes, but Congress is fighting our President at every turn.
Yeah well Tucker, have you ever talked about Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska?  He was a decorated WWII hero…and beloved in the State of Alaska.  Falsely charged by the Public Integrity Section of the Department of Justice (DOJ), he lost his seat in a narrow margin to a democrat.  Sen. Stevens would have voted against Obamacare and we would have been spared because of his vote.  Robert Mueller was the FBI Director at the time, and Nicholas Marsh, the prosecutor in the Ted Stevens case committed suicide.
Back in 2015, the Senate voted to repeal Obamacare knowing full well Obama would veto it, but then they could lie to their constituents again and say, “Well we tried, we all voted to get rid of it.”  What a sham.
Senators Murkowski and McCain saved Obamacare just months after campaigning and promising their constituents they’d repeal it.  McCain’s 2016 campaign ads said “Obamacare is failing Arizonans,” and that “John McCain is leading the fight to stop Obamacare.”  McCain even introduced a bill to “fully” repeal Obamacare and replace it with a “free-market approach” that strengthens the quality and accessibility of care.  Yet he voted against it.
Murkowski wrote op-eds against the Affordable Care Act, vowed to repeal it, screamed about what it had done to her home state of Alaska and then turned around and voted against every single version of Obamacare repeal. She even voted against a “skinny” repeal that would have only ditched the law’s individual and employer mandates and suspended the tax on medical devices — a tax that is so harmful to that industry that even uber-liberal Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants it repealed.
And those death panels…they really do exist.

Speaker Paul Ryan

Ryan disavowed himself from ever supporting President Trump after he heard the Billy Bush/Access Hollywood tape during the 2016 campaign, which was the excuse for this left leaning globalist to sabotage his own party’s candidate.  Ryan said, “There are basically two things that I want to make really clear as your Speaker.  I am not going to defend Donald Trump, not now, not in the future.”
Paul Ryan was allegedly linked to the release of that tape in an effort to destroy Trump’s campaign.  Gateway Punditrevealed that Ryan actually allowed the corrupt FBI, DOJ and Mueller investigation to harass President Trump since before his inauguration.
Congressman Louie Gohmert revealed that Ryan encouraged GOP House members to campaign against President Trump in 2016.  Watch this 90 second video with Congressman Gohmert.  Now we find out that Ryan and his Chief of Staff John Burks were both involved in pushing the fake Russia Fusion dossier.
In 2016, Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence disagreed with Trump and endorsed Paul Ryan prior to Trump endorsing Ryan and McCain.  Not surprising for an establishment insider like Pence who spent 12 years in Congress voting for everything candidate Trump was against.
Paul Ryan is married to and probably influenced by Janna Little Ryan, a flaming left-wing liberal progressive, anti-Constitutional, big government George Soros supporter who voted for Barack Hussein Obama twice. Link
Pro-amnesty Ryan has never been in lockstep with conservative Republicans. Ryan’s June 2018 amnesty bill, the largest in 30 years, thankfully went down in flames. Ryan has fought the President tooth and nail regarding the porous southern border and illegal aliens.
Senator Schumer praised Ryan for giving President Obama everything he wanted, including promoting a $1.1 trillion omnibus bill. Ryan was far worse than John Boehner and his 20 years in Congress were spent betraying conservatives and America in general.
When over 44 House Republicans, including Ryan, announced their retirement prior to the 2018 midterm elections, the Speaker did nothing to convince the members to remain in Congress to help President Trump and the party.
Retiring Reps Goodlatte and Gowdy say crooked Mueller’s report on Trump “must be trusted.”  Both of these men have claimed Mueller is an honorable man, but history tells us differently.  Mueller’s modus operandi has been exposed numerous times by Congressman Louie Gohmert and by Louisiana State Senator John Milkovich in his book, Robert Mueller, Errand Boy for the New World Order.

Mitt Romney and Vin Weber

More leftist Republicans are now in the Senate.  Romney has replaced GOP Senator Orrin Hatch and he represents the Rockefeller wing of the Republican Party.
Council on Foreign Relations member Vin Weber, economic adviser to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, and member of the globalist new age Agenda 21 Aspen Institute, has warned President Trump against taking drastic measures, saying firing Powell would provoke a “very bad” reaction.  Whoever advised our President to appoint Jerome Powell to head the independent and anti-government fed reserve again chose from the swamp.  Fed Reserve Chairman Powell is doing his best to destroy the booming Trump economy.  See Marilyn Barnewall’s excellent article, Economic Overview for 2019.
As I stated in a previous article, whoever is advising and vetting the President’s choices is not on the side of freedom and the Constitution.  Swamp creatures seem to surround our President.  As for Romney, he will fight Trump at every turn, just like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell.
President Trump has few friends in Congress.  The House Republicans were responsible for overseeing the FBI and DOJ, but they failed.  They unceremoniously ended their investigation into the way the FBI and the Department of Justice handled Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the biased allegations against President Trump.
Conclusion
The next two years will be a nightmare from hell.  The 2019 House will be run by the socialist Democrats with Nancy Pelosi at the helm until at least 2020.  The Republican Senate will not stop the Democrat efforts to destroy our President and his campaign promises.  The Senate is just as filthy as the House.  Both are led by left of center haters of our representative Republic.  They have no desire to help Americans or our President.
Kimberley Strassel’s latest article, The Trump ‘Ethic’ Resistance exposes that House Democrats are about to blitz the Trump administration with subpoenas and investigations. Dark money will fund the effort to destroy Trump.
A local friend said to me, “Honey, here’s the truth of the matter. The majority of Republicans, like their Democrat buddies, are slimy pinko commie sumbitches eagerly tearing apart the very fabric of our once great nation.”  I believe he’s right.
Time to call a halt to this corruption.

Go to the ER and Wait Indefinitely

Obamacare Coined Older “Units” Seen To Last At The ER

Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh imageBy  —— Bio and ArchivesDecember 30, 2018
older person, going to an ER roomAs an older person, going to an ER room in Northern Virginia is an exercise in costly futility unless you are on death’s door or are prepared to wait for endless hours while younger people are being treated for colds, high fever, bleeding fingers and toes, and other accidents which occur in the exercise of our daily human lives.
Few Americans know or care that the Affordable Care Act of 2010 or Obamacare had labeled those over a certain age as “units.” If patients are young, they probably think themselves immortal – they would never get old, therefore such “unit” labeling does not apply to them. The stark realization hits you like a ton of bricks – you have become an older “unit” that can be ignored because government formulas deemed your utility to society too close to zero.

Most hospitals in NOVA post on an electronic board the number of minutes a patient must wait before they are triaged and/or seen in an ER. That may appear comforting and caring about one’s health and time until you actually set foot in the ER and reality replaces clever and deceptive advertising.

I had to go to our local ER this week. After the initial data and insurance screening, triage, and waiting for three hours to be placed in a room and to be seen, I decided to leave.

The waiting room, triaged by two people speaking English with heavy accents, kept getting more crowded with illegal aliens who did not speak English and required a translator in their respective dialects. Over and over I heard the question, “Do you speak English,” and calls made over the loudspeaker to a phone translator or to a hospital employee who spoke that language. It was a veritable tower of Babel.

I felt alone and lost in a sea of people with sick children who could have been seen quickly and much cheaper by a local Emergicare doctor, while my chest was hurting like hell and needed immediate attention.

It is sad that, after paying half of my income in taxes and being forced to purchase three medical insurance premiums, I cannot get medical care in my own country. Illegals flood the emergency rooms in northern Virginia. As human beings, they have a right to be treated too but must I pay for them and must my medical care become secondary and tertiary to their needs?

Thirty years ago there were no Emergicare facilities where we lived and ER wait was extensive in the small southern town. I had to wait once eight hours when my child had 104.5 F fever before we could see a doctor. In that case it was because of the shortage of doctors – nobody wanted to practice medicine in a small town.

Locals had to travel 100 miles or more to the nearest larger town in order to seek medical care.  People were really nice in the local ER then but my daughter could have had a seizure. I gave her liquid Motrin but the fever was not coming down. She needed an antibiotic shot right away. She eventually got it but I am saddened to this day when I think about the length of our wait and what could have happened in that time.

Going to an ER was a big deal back then as charges were huge and people actually had to pay them immediately or over time. Today Americans and illegals flock to ERs for convenience. They use emergency rooms as their GP doctor because they have no idea how much it cost to use emergency services, they don’t care, and someone else is paying for their visit.

While we pay medical bills of illegals from Mexico, consider the situation when an elderly American residing in Mexico, was taken to a private hospital in Guadalajara recently by her American son. Following a fall and arrival at the hospital, within 30 minutes, the only American patient got a CT scan, two X-rays, blood tests, and specialist doctors to read the results. The hospital did not take Medicare Part A. The admission fee was 90,000 pesos ($4,500). Because the test readings were within normal range, the son asked to have the IV removed and she was discharged. The IV removal took three hours. The son had to leave his passport “hostage” with the promise to pay on Monday when the banks opened. The actual medical bill was 12,200 pesos ($610).

According to the Associated Press, starting on January 1, 2019, “Medicare will require hospitals to post their standard prices online and make electronic records more readily available for patients.”

“Seema Verma, head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said the new requirement for online prices reflects the Trump administration’s ongoing efforts to encourage patients to become better-educated decision makers in their own care.”

Americans should educate themselves before heading to the nearest ER, but what about all the illegal aliens who don’t speak English and who flood emergency rooms because they know medical care is free and is paid for by American taxpayers?
