Oops!

Hawaii, the 50th state in our union, is a liberal paradise. Voting Republican there is considered a felony. In this hard left Valhalla everything is run top to bottom by Democrats. That’s why it is disingenuous that after someone mistakenly hit the wrong button to sound a false alarm of an impending nuclear attack, the knee-jerk assclowns on the Left blamed Donald Trump.

‘He feels really bad’: Civil Defense employee who sparked terror in Hawaii by accidentally triggering ballistic missile warning will be ‘retrained’ say officials after thousands fled to bomb shelters

  • The alert was issued to residents’ phones at 8.07am on Saturday morning.
  • It told them to seek shelter and warned of an ‘inbound ballistic missile threat’.
  • It took 38 minutes for a second phone alert to be issued across the state.
  • By then, terrified residents had flocked to shelters and into their garages.
  • Civil Defense employee accidentally hit alert, was unaware until his phone got it.
  • An FCC investigation into the incident is underway, officials said.

EMA Administrator Vern Miyagi (left) and Hawaii Governor David Ige (right) apologized for the error at a press conference Saturday afternoon
IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING WHATEVER HAPPENED TO MR. MIYAGI

Klein: For 38 Terrifying Minutes, Hawaii Experienced Israeli Life under Rocket Threat

GOOD POINT

For thirty-eight terrifying minutes on Saturday, Hawaii residents unfortunately experienced a sampling of life in Israel during recent wars here when Hawaiians received a mistaken emergency alert notification warning of a “ballistic missile threat inbound to Hawaii.”

Jim Carrey, Jamie Lee Curtis Lash Out At President Trump Over Hawaii Nuke Scare

Carrey tweeted about a half-hour later, writing along with posting an image of a mushroom cloud that Trump will bring about a global nuclear holocaust, “I woke up this morning in Hawaii with ten minutes to live. It was a false alarm, but a real psychic warning. If we allow this one-man Gomorrah and his corrupt Republican congress to continue alienating the world we are headed for suffering beyond all imagination. ;^\”

Democrat Tulsi Gabbard blames Trump for false missile alert in Hawaii

Hawaii’s nutty Rep. Tulsi Gabbard blamed Trump for the false missile alert in Hawaii that made millions panic. She says it’s his fault because he hasn’t done what a handful of presidents before him had not been able to do either – solve North Korea.

If there’s one thing you actually CANNOT blame Trump for is the mess in North Korea. Each president before Trump has kicked the can down the road, even as we had more and more signs that they were building up their nuclear and ICBM capabilities. Yes, it falls on Trump’s lap, but it’s not an easy thing to solve, and he’s certainly trying.

In any case, given that some idiot in Hawaii just “pressed the wrong button” and panicked millions, maybe Tulsi should look after her own in the state before casting aspersions on the prezzy.

False missile alert: So are we buying this “wrong button” story?

When Allahpundit was covering the breaking news of Oh My God We’re All Going To Die yesterday, panic slowly turned to relief, but those feelings gave way to a mixture of anger and confusion. What the heck happened? By the end of the article we learn that the rather tardy apology from the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (HEMA) boiled down to one excuse… somebody pushed the wrong button.

Trump says DACA ‘is probably dead’ because of Democrats

President Trump in a tweet on Sunday said the Obama-era policy that protects young immigrants known as “Dreamers” is “probably dead” and blamed its demise on Democrats.

“DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military.”

In his series of tweets, Trump also renewed his call for a “merit” based immigration system.

I, as President, want people coming into our Country who are going to help us become strong and great again, people coming in through a system based on MERIT. No more Lotteries! #AMERICA FIRST,” he said.

Trey Gowdy resigns as House Ethics Committee member

HIS COMMITTEE MEETS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. NO CAMERAS, NO KABUKI THEATER.
FOR ALL HIS THEATRICS NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE AND NEVER WILL. IT’S ALL FOR SHOW.

Gowdy faced criticism late last year after it was revealed that he used $150,000 in taxpayer dollars to settle a dispute with a former aide, who had accused the GOP congressman of firing him after he refused to focus his work on investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the Oversight Committee, said last month that it was “astonishing” Gowdy wouldn’t meet with a whistleblower who claimed to have information on former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Iranian Officials Blast Trump Over Threat To Pull Out From Nuclear Deal

THEY THINK TRUMP CANNOT PULL OUT OF THE PHONY DEAL BOZO GAVE UP SO MUCH TO GET SIGNED. THEY’RE WRONG. ANY TREATY HAS TO BE APPROVED BY CONGRESS… AND WE ALL KNOW HOW WELL OBAMA WORKED WITH CONGRESS, DON’T WE?

Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that it would not accept any renegotiation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the 2015 nuclear deal, and promised a response to new U.S. sanctions.

“While Trump is forced to carry out the binding measures included in the JCPOA, he is continuing his past years approach, and in order to show his hostility towards the great Iranian nation, he has put some Iranian and non-Iranian individuals on the sanctions list out of desperation under illegal, worn-out, and ridiculous pretexts so as to make up for at least part of his failures,” the statement reads.

New United Nations Boss Unveils Plan to Promote Global Mass Migration

THERE’LL BE NO MASS MIGRATION TO THE U.S. AS LONG AS TRUMP IS PRESIDENT.

Guterres, a former Socialist Party prime minister in his native Portugal, took over the top job at the UN on January 1st, having previously served as the institution’s High Commissioner for Refugees.

His article, titled ‘Migration can benefit the world. This is how we at the UN plan to help’, makes the bold claim that mass migration “powers economic growth, reduces inequalities and connects diverse societies”, in order to promote the Global Compact for Migration.

[CtH: When the U.N. says out loud that Muslim nations should accept immigrants, I’ll maybe possibly listen.]

McAuliffe Says He’d Deck Trump if Trump Got In His Space

McAuliffe, the Democratic governor of Virginia, is likely to run for president in 2020. That apparently would be the same year he might be facing assault charges.

Judicial Anarchy Over DACA

Another activist judge runs roughshod over the separation of powers.

Needless to say, President Trump was not happy with this latest example of judicial overreach.

It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and almost always wins before being reversed by higher courts,” President Trump tweeted, referring to the District Court judge from the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

Protecting the national security of the citizens of the United States and concerns over whether Obama had overstepped the constitutional bounds of his executive authority by ordering DACA’s implementation in the first place play second fiddle in Judge Alsup’s mind to the welfare of immigrants in the country illegally and of the University of California at which they are students or staff outweigh any other considerations.

Notably, one of the plaintiffs in this case – Janet Napolitano, serving in her capacity as chancellor of the University of California – is using California taxpayers’ money to defend the constitutionally shaky DACA which she helped to create as Secretary of Homeland Security in 2012.

Leaking classified info

COMEY: The acting FBI Chief FOIA Officer has confirmed that ALL of the documents then FBI Director James Comey leaked to a liberal reporter and friend to publish were classified at the time they were written and are still classified today.

18 U.S. Code § 798 – Disclosure of classified information

IRAN: From Vice President Pence: “The last administration’s refusal to act ultimately emboldened Iran’s tyrannical rulers to crack down on the dissent. The Green Revolution was ruthlessly put down, and the deadly silence on the streets of Iran matched the deafening silence from the White House. To this day, many Iranians blame the United States for abandoning them in their hour of need. Today, the Iranian people are once again rising up to demand freedom and opportunity, and under President Trump, the United States is standing with them. This time, we will not be silent.”

IRAN: The U.S. Treasury Department announced it’s placing new sanctions against five Iranian entities over ties to the country’s ballistic missile program and said that “additional sanctions targeting human rights abuses would be forthcoming.”

TAX CUTS: To date, more than 100 companies are giving “Trump bonuses” after the Republicans’ historic tax victory. “There is a broad and deep tsunami building,” John Kartch of Americans for Tax Reform tells the paper, as businesses across the country look to raise wages, increase charitable giving, and extend bonuses.

REFUGEES: Violent crime in Germany rose by about 10% in 2015 and 2016. A study found that 90% of that crime was attributed to young male refugees.

DRUGS: Under Obama, states were advised the DOJ would not obstruct states that legalized marijuana, despite the fact that marijuana use is illegal under federal law. Trump’s DOJ has just rescinded all that policy.

President Trump’s 1st Year in Office an ECONOMIC MIRACLE: All Time Stock Market Highs – Most Jobs in History – Highest GDP Ever

President Trump’s first year in office resulted in the greatest year in stock market history! The Dow ended up nearly 5,000 points for the year which was the highest increase in the Dow’s more than 100 year history. The Dow reached all-time new highs a record 71 times in 2017, breaking the record for the most all-time highs in a calendar year set in 1995.

At the final bell for the year the Dow closed near its highest closing amount ever at 24,719. Since last year’s election the Dow is up 35%!

Finally: Signs of a real economic recovery for the US

US GDP, for example, is now on pace to grow at an annual rate of about 3 percent for the first three full quarters of President Trump’s term. Compare that to the less than 2 percent average annual growth under President Barack Obama.

Indeed, not a single year saw 3 percent growth or more under Obama, the only president in modern history with such a sorry record. Things may finally be turning around.

Trump pulls brakes on $13B Obama-backed rail-tunnel plan

An Obama-era plan to have the federal government finance half of a $13 billion rail tunnel project ran into a red light Friday from the Trump administration.

The original Obama-era plan called for costs to be split among New York state, New Jersey and the federal government.

But in a letter Friday, the Trump administration notified New York and New Jersey that the Obama-era deal was now “non-existent” because the states recently requested that their portions be covered by loans from the federal government — meaning Washington would supply all of the initial funding for what the Trump White House is calling “a local project.”

Judge Upholds Controversial Bill Requiring Taxpayers to Fund Abortions in Illinois

The bill forces Illinois state residents to fund abortions of Medicaid recipients and state employee health insurance beneficiaries and sets no expense ceiling nor a limit on the number of abortions that Medicaid will cover.

Rauner said that the state should fund abortions because wealthy women should not have reproductive options not shared by poor women

According to Illinois House Republican Floor Leader, Peter Breen, the new law will oblige taxpayers to foot the bill for “an expected 20,000 to 30,000” abortions per year.

Former Israeli Ambassador To The US: Obama Rejected Iran Green Revolution For Nuclear Deal

US President Barack Obama chose not to support the 2009 Iranian Green Protest Movement, because he hoped to reach a deal with Iran on its nuclear weapons that he signed six years later, then-ambassador to the US and current Deputy Minister Michael Oren (Kulanu) said Monday.

Obama’s failure to help Iranian protesters has been criticized since then by Israeli officials, led by Jewish Agency chairman and former Soviet dissident Natan Sharansky, who has called it the biggest failure to help human rights in modern history

Ex-Obama State Dept. Spox: We Didn’t Support Iran Protesters in 2009 Because They Asked Us Not To

More from the woman who claimed “job opportunities” were the key to defeating ISIS.
Substitute host Dana Perino didn’t hesitate to put Harf on the hot seat, comparing Obama’s lack of support for Iranian protesters in 2009 with President Trump and VP Pence’s support for the protesters in Iran today.

Exemplifying Obama’s losing, “leading from behind,” approach to foreign policy, Harf said:

“The reason we didn’t [support the protesters] was that it was our judgment—and we were hearing from Iranians protesting on the streets that your support will not help us.”

Former Obama Advisers Tell Trump to ‘Be Quiet’ on Iran Protests

HE WAS WILLING TO LET INNOCENT PEOPLE DIE TO SAVE HIS PRECIOUS IRAN DEAL.

Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice tweeted a New York Times op-ed by former Obama aide Philip Gordon, “How Can Trump Help Iran’s Protesters? Be Quiet.” The author argues that supporting the protests, and taking steps to end the Iran nuclear deal, will only help the regime to delegitimize its internal opponents.

The Unreported Revolution

Protests have raged for days throughout Iran, as people rebel against an oppressive regime that rules with an iron fist. This is not the first time the people have risen up, resulting in rivers of blood among those craving freedom.

What’s going on in Iran? – June 2009 – Green Revolution

Fact Check: Was Obama ‘silent’ on Iran 2009 protests?

On June 13, 2009, Iran announced that incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad won a landslide victory. His main opponent, Mir Hossein Moussavi, had already alleged blatant violations. After the announcement, angry crowds of Moussavi supporters took to the streets.

SOUNDS LIKE THE DEMOCRATS AFTER 2016, ONLY WE’RE NOT SAVAGES LIKE THE MULLAHS ARE

June 15, Obama gave remarks on the situation. He said he was watching the news from Iran. It is “up to Iranians to make decisions about who Iran’s leaders will be,” he said, adding that “we respect Iranian sovereignty and want to avoid the United States being the issue inside of Iran.”

Asked why he would not spell out potential consequences for Iran over its behavior, the president replied, “Because I think that we don’t know yet how this thing is going to play out. I know everybody here is on a 24-hour news cycle. I’m not.”

[CtH: He was fast enough with condemning COPS, without having ANY of the facts.  What a hypocrite.]

His silence validated the mullahs, despite the blood on their hands and the nuclear centrifuges in their tunnels,” presidential hopeful Tim Pawlenty alleged last year in the race for the Republican nomination.

THE MEDIA CONTINUES TO SCREAM THAT THIS STINKING PIG IS A CHRISTIAN. HE’S NEVER GIVEN ANY INDICATION HE WAS ANYTHING BUT A MUSLIM MAGGOT.

Anti-Regime Protests Break Out Across Iran

The crowds drilled to chant ‘death to America’ went off the script and demanded the end of the Islamic regime instead. Videos show Iranians chanting ‘Death to the dictator’ and ‘Death to Rouhani’.

President Obama, busy cementing his ‘legacy’ with a Nuclear Deal with the Iranian regime, refused to show any support for the pro-democracy movement in Iran. He even threw a lifeline the Iranian regime at a time when international sanctions were finally beginning to show results.

As columnist Eli Lake explained, writing for the Bloomberg, “Obama wasn’t just reluctant to show solidarity in 2009, he feared the demonstrations would sabotage his secret outreach to Iran.”

“Obama from the beginning of his presidency tried to turn the country’s ruling clerics from foes to friends,” Lake added.

President Obama’s Nuclear Deal allowed Iran access to assets frozen in the US to the tune of $100 billion. The Obama administration even shipped $1.7 billion in cash to the regime, described as ‘settlement of old legal claim.’

With President Trump in office, those cash payments seem to have stopped. Buoyed by the cash flow thanks to Obama-Kerry Nuclear Deal, regime overstretched itself militarily, funding and manning pro-Iranian militia in Syria, Yemen and Lebanon. Tehran even resumed aid to the Gaza-based Islamist terror outfit Hamas — Hezbollah’s estranged evil Sunni twin, patching up ties strained by Iran’s intervention in the Syrian conflict.

Iran cuts social media access as unrest turns deadly
Iran cut access to social media on Sunday in a bid to head off further protests after days of unrest that saw two people killed and dozens arrested.

#NeverTrump National Review Licked ‘the Mud Off of George W. Bush’s Boots’ While He Allowed Iraq’s Christians to Be Ethnically Cleansed
The Bush administration showed absolutely zero concern for the Christian communities of Iraq,” said Zmirak. “And we’re not talking five or six hundred people; 1.3 million Christians lived in Iraq when the Iraq War started, and they have lived there for two thousand years. They were some of the earliest Christian communities in the world. Way before there were Catholics in Rome, or before Constantinople existed, there were Christians in Iraq.”

“Seventy-five to eighty percent of [Iraq’s Christian communities] were ethnically cleansed while George Bush was president, while he was commander-in-chief, while he ruled that country as absolutely as Kim Jong-un rules North Korea. He didn’t care,” Zmirak stated

Some call Trump’s Iran protest tweets striking turnabout from Obama era

Those protesters are being buoyed by messages from the Trump administration, says the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), a coalition of democratic Iranian groups and personalities.
In two tweets earlier Saturday, President Donald Trump offered up a message of hope to the protesters: “The entire world understands that the good people of Iran want change, and, other than the vast military power of the United States, that Iran’s people are what their leaders fear the most…”

Trump added: “Oppressive regimes cannot endure forever, and the day will come when the Iranian people will face a choice. The World is watching!”

Iran’s leaders have turned a wealthy country with a rich history and culture into an economically depleted rogue state whose chief exports are violence, bloodshed, and chaos,” the department said in a statement. “As President Trump has said, the longest-suffering victims of Iran’s leaders are Iran’s own people.”

“We urge all nations to publicly support the Iranian people and their demands for basic rights and an end to corruption,” the statement added.

Supreme Leader Tweets About Jesus, But Iran is One of World’s Worst Persecutors of Christians
Iran is also one of 10 countries currently designed “countries of particular concern” under U.S. law for egregious violations of religious freedom.  Iran carries out more executions each year than any country apart from China, applying the death penalty for offenses including apostasy, insulting Mohammed and other “grand prophets,” moharebeh (enmity against Allah) and “corruption on earth.”

Just two weeks before Christmas, however, the independent Iranian Christian news agency Mohabat News reported that security forces raided six houses in Karaj, Iran’s fourth-largest city, where Christians hold house church services.

It said four converts to Christianity were arrested and that shops owned by two of the men were also raided.  Four of the Christians received ten year prison sentences, after being convicted of engaging in missionary activities and “conducting activities against national security,” Christian Solidarity Worldwide reported at the time.

“The charges and sentences against these four men are unwarranted and unjustifiable, given the paucity of the evidence against them,” said CSW chief executive Mervyn Thomas.https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/patrick-goodenough/supreme-leader-tweets-about-jesus-iran-one-worlds-worst-persecutors

Iran Starts Killing Protesters, ABC Ignores While CBS and NBC Downplay
IF THIS SURPRISES YOU, YOU’RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

Disgustingly, the deaths didn’t trigger much air on the three major American networks. ABC’s Good Morning America had a blackout of the deaths and protests all together while NBC only found 24 seconds for them. CBS finally discovered the protests, as they continued into their fourth day, dedicating a meager 16 seconds.

Instead of allowing serious time for the brutal murders of Iranian civilians and the protests, whose marchers have been chanting “Death to Rouhani” and “We don’t want an Islamic republic,” NBC’s Sunday Today ran a four minute and 37 seconds long highlight reel of the media slamming and smearing President Trump from this past year.

More on Politico’s Hezbollah Story

Fox interviewed the author, Josh Meyer

The MSM has been ignoring or sneering at this story, despite the fact that Politico is hardly a right-wing news organization. However, the Washington Post did finally get a round tuit and their reporter’s assessment is this:

Josh Meyer’s groundbreaking investigation was rigorously reported, deeply sourced, thoroughly vetted and is of significant public interest given the national security implications. POLITICO is proud of this story and believe it captures the complexity of the decision making by the Obama administration in pursuit of a deal with Iran that it viewed as a major foreign policy achievement. It’s hardly surprising that Obama loyalists have pushed back on the overall thrust of the article.

In his months of reporting the piece, Josh conducted an exhaustive review of government documents and court records and spoke with dozens of key participants at all levels of government. It’s worth noting that the principals mentioned in the piece were given the opportunity to comment and when they declined, POLITICO interviewed numerous sources who could speak on their behalf.

Also, Josh responded himself on television [Tuesday], specifically responding to the false claim that the article is based on uncorroborated complaints from disgruntled low-level officials. “I also talked to many, many dozens of other people to get a sort of ground truth and see what their allegations were when held up to the light of day. So this is not a story in 14,000 words where I was just taking spin from some people,” he said.

The MSM may be ignoring this story, but Congress isn’t.

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), a member of the House Oversight Committee and chair of its National Security Subcommittee, told the Washington Free Beacon on Wednesday that he and other top lawmakers are examining evidence that could implicate top former Obama officials, including National Security Council official Ben Rhodes, the architect of the former administration’s self-described pro-Iran “echo chamber.”

“I’ve long believed that the Obama administration could not have done any more to bend over backwards to appease the Iranian regime, yet news that the Obama administration killed the investigation into a billion dollar drug ring that lined the terrorist group Hezbollah’s pockets in order to save its coveted Iran deal may very well take the cake,” DeSantis said.

“Hezbollah is a brutal terrorist group with American blood on its hands and it would be unconscionable for American policy to deliberately empower such a nefarious group,” he said.
