Religious Liberty Restored!

2017_10 09 Religious Liberty Restored

President Trump has delivered!

The HHS Mandate will no longer be enforced against organizations with a sincerely held religious or moral objection. The exemption must be granted to anyone with a reasonable objection who requests it. The days of pleading for a waiver are over.

What’s more, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a powerful memorandum about religious liberty to all federal agencies and departments. Among other things, it says:

  • The freedom of religion is an important, fundamental right, expressly protected by federal law.
  • The freedom of religion extends to persons and organizations.
  • Government may not officially favor or disfavor particular religious groups.
  • Religious employers are entitled to employ only persons whose beliefs and conduct are consistent with the employers’ religious precepts.
  • The federal government may not condition federal grants or contracts on the religious organization altering its religious character, beliefs, or activities.

The burden of proof has finally shifted back to the government where it belongs. This is a great leap forward for our First Amendment right to religious freedom.

This reminds me of an NCIS episode in which Gibbs takes out a wise-mouthed terrorist just before he’s about to kill DiNozzo, McGee and Ziva. Gibbs is on a mountain top at least a mile away with a high-powered rifle, and he puts a bullet right through the bad guy’s forehead.

The British Special Air Service marksman turned one of the most hated terrorists in Syria into a fireball by using a Barett .50-caliber rifle to strike a fuel tank affixed to the jihadi’s back, the UK’s Daily Star reported Sunday.

The pack exploded, killing the sadistic terrorist and three of his flunkies, who were supposed to film the execution, last month, the paper said.

Phillips 66 Uses Jones Act Waiver to Book Foreign Tanker as U.S.-Flagged ‘Armada’ Heads for Florida
OBAMA WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO HURT THE PEOPLE OF THE GULF STATES AFTER THE BP OIL SPILL… BIG DIFFERENCE

Phillips 66 has taken advantage of the U.S. Department of Homeland Securities’ temporary Jones Act waiver applying to tankers in response to fuel shortages in the southeast United States in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Argus Media reported Thursday.

The foreign charter comes as an “armada” of at least 26 U.S.-flagged vessels carrying millions of gallons of fuel and other refined products head for Florida, the American Maritime Partnership said.

A divided U.S. Supreme Court reinstated disputed congressional and state voting maps in Texas, blocking two lower court rulings that said the Republican-backed district lines were the product of racial discrimination.

The orders issued Tuesday evening make it likely the disputed districts will be used in 2018, as they were with some small variations for the three previous elections. Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissented.

The Best Laid Plans

The original plan for today was to concentrate on the looming threat posed by that fat little brat in NoKo who would be simply pathetic if it were not for the fact he is so dangerous. I still plan to do it, but first things first.

When AG Sessions announced that Obama’s executive order illegally creating DACA was going to be undone by Trump, the reaction was predictable, as it always is when the left doesn’t get their way 100% of the time. It would be a monumental waste of time to post even a smidgen of the wailing from media whores, bloated political layabouts, and glitterati who think their opinion is so much more important than yours, and you need to pay attention because they’re really, really smart.

It is obvious that the alternative to President Trump that we were faced with would be far, far worse, but damn, he is frustrating the hell out of us. He would sign ANY legislation Congress sent him, just to say he did it. The lazy bastards in the GOP are in no hurry to do anything they could be called on and their friends the democrats aren’t about to help.


This really pissed me off:

Trump Explicitly Calls For Amnesty, Says He Might ‘Revisit’ DACA Decision

HE SAID, ESSENTIALLY, SIT ON YOUR ASSES FOR 6 MONTHS AND I’LL REINSTATE DACA. A REAL NO-BRAINER FOR THE DO-NOTHINGS.

“Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do),” Trump tweeted. “If they can’t, I will revisit this issue!”

“Congress now has the opportunity to advance responsible immigration reform that puts American jobs and American security first,” Trump said in a statement following Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement about the rescinding of DACA. Trump’s call for a legislative amnesty is a departure from his campaign rhetoric in which he said there would be “no amnesty.”

Trump to Congress: Legalize DACA (or I Will Revisit)

But by late Tuesday, Trump appeared to have turned into a paper tiger on the key campaign promise to get rid of DACA, saying he would “revisit this issue” if Congress did not “legalize DACA.”

It is unlikely that Trump’s “America First” base, which supported Trump in part because of his focus on illegal immigration, will be satisfied with anything approaching a repeat of DACA — either by Congress or presidential pen.

Perhaps sensing a possible cave, conservative commentator Ann Coulter tweeted before the announcement that millions of voters “not only won’t vote for [Trump] again, but will never vote Republican again if they pass this DACA amnesty.”

I, I, I. Me, me, me. My bills. My ego. My education. My job. My anxiety.  Since when did DACA become the Depression and Anxiety Cure for Amnesty-seekers?

It’s this insatiable appetite for collective entitlement that demonstrates the perils of blanket amnesty. Give a privileged political class an inch and they’ll take, take, take until feckless public servants give away their country.

The Friday Dish

Given the manner in which the special counsel, Robert Mueller, is expanding his hyper partisan witch hunt into all things Trump it would be no surprise to me if, at some point, the president fires him. He is well within the scope of his executive authority, but the hue and cry from the left would be deafening. I just can’t see Trump allowing this carnival of pain to continue much longer.

The New Obama… with Ovaries

Now comes Kamala Harris, Californicate’s latest in a long line of liberal lunatics. She was the attorney general who was locked in a bitter primary with fake Mexican Loretta Sanchez until the Magic Negro endorsed her. The homeys always obeyed their Messiah. Surprisingly, I wasn’t aware she’s actually East Indian. Ask 98.5% of Cali’s socialist guerillas and they’ll claim she be black.
She rode into town with a hyper-democrat attitude. She aimed to show the world she’s a mean, nasty, rude, foul-mouthed tramp who intends to be the next Barack Obama by being the meanest dog in the pound.

President Kamala Harris? She’s making the first moves
LOS ANGELES —Now’s the time prospective presidential candidates start taking the subtle but crucial behind-the-scenes steps that get them noticed by the political intelligentsia, and Sen. Kamala Harris is quietly following the script.
She’s making speeches to key national constituencies. She’s due for an appearance at a Washington think-tank panel full of chattering-class presidential favorites that the national media will be reporting and analyzing, probably for days. She’s been fundraising for colleagues and making sure that she is forming relationships with key national reporters.

Freshperson senator Kamala Harris grills CIA nominee over … wait for it … climate change

At a confirmation hearing for President-elect Donald Trump’s CIA director nominee, newly minted Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) focused on what’s really important in the world of intelligence gathering: global warming.

“In the past you have questioned the scientific consensus on climate change,” Harris asked CIA nominee Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas).

“Nevertheless according to NASA, multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, 97% or more of actively published climate scientists agree that climate warming trends of the past century are extremely likely due to human activities… Do you have any reason to doubt NASA’s findings?”

It’s time to build the wall — around California.

Kamala Harris (Calif.) twice paid tens of thousands to campaign committees for Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.) in exchange for placement on a mailer announcing Waters’s endorsement of Harris, according to Federal Election Commission records.
Harris—who has garnered media attention and earned speculation that she is positioning herself to run for president in 2020 following her performance during recent Senate hearings, including that of former FBI Director James Comey—has kicked $63,000 to the campaign of Maxine Waters, the congressional face of the anti-Trump movement, in exchange for placement on the endorsement mailers.

TELL THEM HOMEYS I’M YOUR GIRL… I’LL PAY YOU!!
The mailers list the candidates endorsed by Waters and is sent to the more than 200,000 constituents in South Central Los Angeles area, where the congresswoman holds considerable clout. The mailers contain an “official sample ballot” with brief quotes from the congresswoman.
The operation is run by Karen Waters, the daughter of Rep. Waters, who has collected more than $650,000 to date for running the endorsement mailers. Karen is owed another $108,000 from her mother’s campaign committee, according to its most recent records. Once Karen is paid, her total payments will reach more than $750,000 since 2006.

What’s Really Important

There is a lot going on in the state of world affairs, to be sure. Terrorists in London, the Comey hearings, the GA-6th debate, etc. While these may be important, they pale in comparison to an upcoming event Friday morning. I booked a guided fishing trip months ago with a friend, his son, and my R.J. I had no idea which lake we were going to and he won’t answer his cell phone. The old lady at the bait shop was of little help when I called, she only said: ‘Where do you want to go?’ Walworth County, Wisconsin, has numerous lakes and I assumed he would decide. Apparently not. I chose Lake Delavan and she gave me directions to one of the three boat launches on the lake. I’m getting a little obsessive, but I don’t want anything to go wrong since my grandson has looked forward to this for months. Fishing with him is one of the few real joys in my life anymore.

Now onto the crap.

DC Swamp Goes Crazy for James Comey Hearing

HE WILL ADROITLY TIPTOE AROUND THE FACTS TO AVOID INCRIMINATING HIMSELF. AT THE END OF THE DAY THE MEDIA, THIRSTING FOR BLOOD, WILL BE SORELY DISAPPOINTED.

The Washington establishment and media elite has gone into a full-blown craze over a Senate hearing on Thursday featuring fired FBI Director James Comey.

And while the media continued to hype the hearing, some began expressing worry the hearing would not live up to the hype.

The Senate Intelligence Committee hearing is slated to begin at 10 a.m. eastern and begin with opening statements from the chairman and vice chairman of the committee. Comey will then deliver an opening statement, and senators will have the opportunity to question Comey, with multiple rounds of questions expected. The hearing is expected to last hours. The closed hearing is scheduled at 1 p.m. eastern.

Sessions Is Said to Have Offered to Resign

The situation between Mr. Sessions and Mr. Trump has grown so tense that the attorney general told Mr. Trump in recent weeks that he needed the freedom to do his job and that he could resign if that was what was wanted, according to the two people who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal White House matters. Mr. Trump did not take him up on the offer.

A spokesman for Mr. Sessions declined to comment. A White House spokeswoman did not respond to an email seeking comment.

SESSIONS OFFERED HIS RESIGNATION, TRUMP REFUSED IT. TRUMP IS RIGHT

Jeff Sessions Got Played by Democrats When He Recused Himself from Russian Witch Hunt

Sessions made the announcement in March that he would recuse himself from the Russian investigation — in an effort to appease liberal Democrats.

SESSIONS COULD COMMIT HARA KIRI ON THE SOUTH LAWN AND THE DEMOCRATS WOULD STILL BE UNHAPPY.

And the Russian conspiracy continues to make headlines in the liberal media day after day.

Trump is right to be angry.

ABC reported: “As the White House braces for former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony Thursday, sources tell ABC News the relationship between President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions has become so tense that Sessions at one point recently even suggested he could resign.

Trump’s anger over the recusal has not diminished with time. Two sources close to the president say he has lashed out repeatedly at the attorney general in private meetings, blaming the recusal for the expansion of the Russia investigation, now overseen by Special Counsel and former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

They Just Won’t Go Away: Michelle Obama Trashes Trump at Apple Conference

The last time we saw Michelle Obama, she was flaunting her poor fashion sense in Italy.  This week the former First Lady was a surprise guest at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in California.  She delivered a fireside chat where she trashed President Trump over global warming junk science and his temporary travel ban from failed Islamist states.

Michelle Obama: “I think my message earlier was, you know, think about that higher purpose. Because we are at a time in this country when we need problem solvers out there who are committed who believe in this country who believe in the value of diversity and believe in, you know, the value of immigrants, and believe that global warming is real.”

Ugh.  Won’t these people please just go away.  You’ve done enough damage Michelle for one lifetime.  Now shoo.

Why bother indeed

DOG did it

From Mary Chastain at Legal Insurrection:

The MSM sucks so bad. I mean HORRIBLE. In prepared remarks to border agents, Sessions called cartels and criminals filth. It’s PLAIN AS DAY.

“But no, they immediately see filth and assume he means immigrants in general. Today that same media had to eat crow and admit their mistake. Well, only one basically did and of course, his apology didn’t receive 1/10 the attention his accusation received.

“Then the journalists whined and moaned when Tillerson ditched his press pool when he met with Putin. SEE MY ABOVE COMMENT. Again, if the MSM did their damn job they wouldn’t run into this problem.

“Then everyone complains about transparency. The administration cannot be transparent if the MSM distorts and twists everything that comes out of their mouths. Give me a break.

“I have NO problem with Tillerson ditching the press pool. They won’t do their job properly anyway so why bother?

It’s the Trump Era

Yesterday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a speech on the U.S.-Mexico border in Nogales, Arizona, reaffirming President Donald Trump’s commitment to securing the border and enforcing immigration laws.

Border arrest

“For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump Era,” Sessions said. “The lawlessness, the abdication of duty to enforce our laws, and the catch-and-release policies of the past are over.”

The attorney general also announced that 50 more immigration judges would be added this year to help relieve the backlog.  Another 75 will arrive in 2018.

On March 9, 2017, Trump’s Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly announced that the number of people illegally crossing the U.S. southern border has dropped 40 percent since President Trump took office.

Even more remarkable, Kelly noted that border agents usually see a 10 to 20 percent increase in illegal immigrant apprehensions from January to February.

Another good sign is a sudden increase in the fees charged by human smugglers.  Before the election, the usual fee was around $3,500.  It’s now up to $8,000.
