Full Blown Investigation

OBAMAGATE graphic

The House and Senate intelligence committees are expanding their investigation into the so-called “unmasking” controversy.

They will be auditing files from the National Security Agency and White House to determine whether identities and conversations of members of Congress or presidential candidates other than Trump were swept up during NSA surveillance of foreign leaders and whether this intelligence was misused for political purposes.

For a private U.S. citizen to be “unmasked,” or named, in an intelligence report is extremely rare and typically only done if it has some foreign intelligence value. Typically, the American is a suspect in a crime, is in danger or has to be named to explain the context of the report.

If the names were unmasked in intelligence reports and then leaked to the media for political reasons, it could constitute criminal behavior.

Government welfare is based on compulsion, not compassion

2017_03 Meals on Wheels toon

From Stephen Moore:

One of my favorite stories of American history dates back to the 19th century when Col. Davy Crockett, who fought at the Alamo, served in Congress. In a famous incident, Congress wanted to appropriate $100,000 to the widow of a distinguished naval officer.

Crockett took to the House floor and delivered his famous speech, relevant as ever: “We have the right, as individuals, to give away as much of our own money as we please in charity; but as members of Congress we have no right to so appropriate a dollar of the public money. … I am the poorest man on this floor. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week’s pay to the object, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks.”

Crockett was the only member of Congress who donated personally to the widow, while the members of Congress who pretended to be so caring and compassionate closed their wallets.

It all goes to show that liberal do-gooders were as hypocritical then as they are today.

Winning

So who’s winning? Barack Obama.
Yesterday Gutfeld described him as the hero at the end of the action movie who’s walking away, the bad guys’ fortress ablaze in the background. That’s how he left the White House. In shambles, full of land mines, with an army of dedicated agents ready to leak vital or damaging information at every turn to a media slavishly devoted to bringing the new president down. He sits in a mansion less than 2 miles away commanding a trained force of agitators, anarchists, and paid protesters ready to assail any republican who dares make a public appearance.

Report: Economy Adds 300,000 Jobs In President Trump’s First Month In Office
Great news, right? I mentioned this to my friend Willie the political idolater today. His answer was it was the result of Obama’s genius economic plan. For just as he used the “mess Bush left him” for his 8 long years of misery and economic stagnation he will now get credit from the media whores for any positive sign of economic growth. Can’t very well give Trump credit for knowing anything, now can they?
The CBO made their report on the AHCA yesterday. While it saves almost a half trillion dollars over 10 years the focus from the left was on the estimated 14 million who will lose coverage this year and the 26 million over 10 years that they claim will be left out. Of course, the first one with his ugly puss in front of the cameras was Schmuckie Schumer. That’s nothing new. The ‘non-partisan” office (there’s not a damn thing non-partisan in this town) is only as accurate as the information it’s given. The Obama crime family blatantly lied about the numbers so the estimate was off by at least $115 billion.

Same CBO That Praised Obamacare and Was Off by $115 Billion Pans GOP Healthcare Bill Today
In March 2010 leading democrats and their lackeys in the state-run media were “just giddy” to report that the CBO crunched some numbers and found the nationalized health care bill they were pushing would reduce the deficit by $138 billion.
It was a lie. Democrats knew it was a lie.
But, after several backroom deals, they rammed the bill through Congress anyway.
Then in May of 2010 the CBO corrected the numbers and said Obamacare will cost taxpayers at least $115 billion more than promised. Democrats pulled a fast one on the American public.
Republican Senators pointed out the deceit in a 2010 video:

Democrats promised that Obamacare would cost $940 billion when they rammed it through Congress. The actual cost has gone up with each revision.
A recent report says Obamacare will cost $2.6 trillion – nearly three times as much as Democrats predicted.
Today the far left CBO panned the Republican healthcare bill.
The Trump White House slammed the CBO’s report.

The plan is already facing resistance from conservatives who say the bill doesn’t go far enough, while more moderate Republicans have expressed concern about the bill’s defunding of Planned Parenthood and the rollback of expanded access to Medicaid.

THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IS THAT THE REPUBLICANS WANT TO PASS HEALTHCARE THAT ACTUALLY WORKS.
As I said yesterday, the democrats shoved a monstrosity through without debate so they could avoid the reconciliation process. They knew once they got it in, it would be almost impossible to remove, as are all government giveaway programs.

Obamacare Victims Tell Their Horror Stories at The White House
TRUMP, UNLIKE HIS PREDECESSOR, DOESN’T DELUDE HIMSELF THINKING HE KNOWS MORE THAN ANYBODY ABOUT ANYTHING. HE WANTS INPUT TO MAKE THE MOST INFORMED DECISIONS POSSIBLE.
“Our rates are three times what they were before Obamacare started. We have one provider in the county,” Carrie Couey of Colorado said. “We have very little options for what we can and cannot do. We are a small business, but we aren’t brick and mortar we are cattle ranchers. We can’t afford our equipment anymore if we’re paying these rates year after year after year. Our food source is in jeapardy because of this heath care law.”

NATURALLY, THE MEDIA WERE THERE TO PISS IN THE PUNCHBOWL
CNN Cuts Trump’s Feed During Obamacare Victims Meeting

NOT THE FIRST TIME — THEY MAKE A PRACTICE OF CUTTING OFF OPINIONS THEY DON’T AGREE WITH
Compilation of CNN Cutting Off Feeds Of People Who Go Against The Narrative

All the while, Obama sits back, smiles, and contemplates how to spend the $60 million he’ll rake in to write a bunch of lies (or have Bill Ayers do it for him) and watch his minions do his dirty work.

Peters: Obama Admin’s ‘Cowardice’ Blew Chance to Get Rid of Bashar al-Assad
HE COULD NOT DO THAT TO A BROTHER MUSLIM

HE NEVER CARED ABOUT THE COMMON PEOPLE. THAT’S WHY HIS PARTY GOT CRUSHED

The GOP’s ObamaCare replacement will boost jobs and cut taxes
Ignore the grandstanding on Capitol Hill and the noise coming from townhall protests around the nation. The Republican bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare will boost your chances of getting a job and cut your tax bill, not to mention your insurance costs.
The repeal bill — called the American Health Care Act — also will stave off a tidal wave of future Medicaid spending that threatens to drown the states and Uncle Sam in red ink.

Was Obama simply a hoax?
We have The New York Post and we have Fox News, but after that we are in a wilderness of deception. No one knows where the truth lies.
The revelation making the rounds again about Obama, how he sneaked through $221 million to his terrorist friends the Palestinian Authority during the last hours of his presidency, makes it elaborately clear that he was always in it for himself and for his pals.
For eight years Israel was betrayed and America was duped by a charmer.
He armed Iran to the teeth. The mullahs grow bolder and now Obama’s generosity is President Trump’s problem. Where did Obama get the money to enrich all those terrorists? Came from our pockets – the Constitution be damned, according to Obama and the news media that babied him every single day for eight years.
All by himself Obama proclaimed that he did not even need Congress. He said, “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” – so forget the rules.
So much, then, for the claim that Obama did not have the Constitutional right to wiretap Trump….which is the hot news of the day.
That assumes that Obama as President cared about the Constitution, taught the Constitution, or ever learned the Constitution.

Removing Two More of Obama’s Federal Jackboot Heels

The Senate recently canned two sets of regulations finalized late last year by Obama’s Department of Education.  One of them is 695 pages long!

PAY ATTENTION HERE:  These are REGULATIONS created by non-elected, federal government employees that usurp education functions that the Constitution specifically says belong to the States.

According to Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), not only does the federal government lack the constitutional authority to interfere in local decision-making about education, but also the REGULATION he speaks against specifically violates a LAW passed by Congress just last year!

Ben Sasse Speaks Against Federal Teacher Mandate [11:27] < WORTH VIEWING

I am fundamentally opposed to the federal government having anything to do with education.  

I believe it puts too much distance between the people making the rules and the teachers and parents who know their own kids best.

Plus, the more centralized anything is, the more people who need to be bribed or blackmailed to get decisions made that benefit those with lots of money and very few morals.

Exhibit A: The Common Core textbook scandal that Project Veritas exposed, showing textbook publishers explaining that Common Core was all about the money, not the kids.

No Child Left Behind and Common Core have both been tried and have both proven to be failures.  Constitutionally, education is a state function.  Get the feds out of education!

The Most Amazing Speech — A Synopsis

Apologies in advance for the probable mess this is going to be. In full disclosure I’d managed to miss every presidential speech over the past eight years. This was due in large part to the fact his voice made me sick to my stomach and the lies that poured out of his skull gave me constipation.

THE ENTIRE EVENING WRAPPED UP IN TWO IMAGES:

I WATCHED THE ENTIRE SPEECH. TEARS WERE ROLLING DOWN MY FACE WHEN HE RECOGNIZED THIS BEAUTIFUL WIFE OF A SLAIN WARRIOR

Widow of Navy SEAL killed in Yemen hailed by Trump

Of all the moments from President Trump’s first address to Congress, the most riveting piece of political theater was his tribute to the widow of fallen Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens. The president’s critics and supporters alike admired it.

Midway through his speech, the president gestured to Owens‘ widow, Carryn, who was a guest in the balcony seated with presidential daughter Ivanka Trump.

“We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens,” Mr. Trump said. “Ryan died as he lived: a warrior, and a hero –- battling against terrorism and securing our nation. Ryan’s legacy is etched into eternity. For as the Bible teaches us, there is no greater act of love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. Ryan laid down his life for his friends, for his country, and for our freedom –- we will never forget him.”

SHE GOT AN OVATION THAT LASTED MORE THAN TWO MINUTES

Five Minute Ovation for Trump but Pouty Democrats Sit on Their Butts

Pelosi and House Dems to Wear White in Protest of Trump

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked Pelosi, who was wearing white and purple, about how Democrats would behave during Trump’s speech and if her wearing white was a form of silent protest.
Pelosi however, used a different term to refer to her decision to wear white and purple.
“It’s not even a protest. It’s a statement of values,” Pelosi said. “It associates ourselves with our suffragette mothers, the color of white, the color purple.”

“The way I told my members: It’s like telling your friend the guy she’s dating is a jerk,” she said.
She explained that, after a while, the friend will put two and two together and leave the “jerk” boyfriend.
“You can’t tell her that,” Pelosi said. “She has to find out for herself. You can give her clues and then eventually one thing will lead to another, she’ll come to her conclusion.”

Voters say Democrats hurting party, nation with scorched-earth anti-Trump tactics: Poll

trumpThe Democratic Party’s never-ending anti-Trump siege isn’t just bad for the country, it’s also hurting Democrats with the voters.
A Rasmussen Reports poll released Tuesday found that 63 percent of those surveyed said it was better for the country as well as the Democratic Party for Democrats to work with President Trump instead of countering him at every turn.
Just 29 percent agreed that it’s better for the party and the nation for Democrats to oppose Mr. Trump “in every way possible.”

Trump just delivered the best speech of his political career
Donald Trump gave the best speech of his short political life last night, and it had nothing to do with grand oratory. He was thoroughly presidential, speaking plainly and yet masterfully in projecting an optimistic vision of the America he aims to build.
It is a vision so optimistic and encompassing that even steaming Democrats had to join boisterous Republicans in the applause at times.

Trump Rips Obama for Lying About Obamacare in First Address to Congress

Trump Acknowledges American Veterans, Says Its Time To Deliver For Them
My budget will also increase funding for our veterans.
Our veterans have delivered for this Nation — and now we must deliver for them.
The challenges we face as a Nation are great. But our people are even greater.
And none are greater or braver than those who fight for America in uniform.

Durham, North Carolina- An elderly veteran was at a VA facility waiting for hours to be seen by a doctor when he was overwhelmed by pain and decided to lay on the floor.
A witness in the waiting room captured photos of the veteran and posted them to her Facebook page. She said that a nurse was yelling at him to get off of the floor.

President Trump: ‘Education Is the Civil Rights Issue of Our Time’
Trump invited Denisha Merriweather to be a guest in the gallery.
“As a young girl, Denisha struggled in school and failed third grade twice,” the president said. “But then she was able to enroll in a private center for learning, with the help of a tax credit scholarship program.”
In an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal in October of 2014, Denisha said Florida’s tax-credit scholarship program “saved” her.
“Today, she is the first in her family to graduate, not just from high school, but from college,” Trump continued. “Later this year she will get her masters degree in social work.”

President Trump orders federal agency for ‘American victims’ of crimes committed by ‘illegal’ immigrants
A chorus of boos arose after President Trump announced during his Tuesday speech before Congress that he will install an office specifically serving victims of “illegal” immigrants.
“I have ordered the Department of Homeland Security to create an office to serve American victims,” Trump said, prompting groans and boos from assembled Democrats. “The office is called VOICE — Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement. We are providing a voice to those who have been ignored by our media, and silenced by special interests.”
The President didn’t deliberate on what exact role the “VOICE” office would play, but instead turned the attention to four audience members: Jamiel Shaw, Susan Oliver, Jenna Oliver and Jessica Davis.

Pelosi Doesn’t Clap After Trump Talks About American Job Creation

Trump’s speech and our infantile left
Like spoiled children who had not gotten their way, they refused to applaud at the most obvious good-for-the-country lines. In fact, they were like a clique of mean girls in middle school who have decided to target one of their own.
They knew what they were hearing was monumental and good for the nation. But consumed in schoolyard jealousy, they got angry, not glad. In doing so, they showed no intention of working “with” President Trump. They are still scrambling for, and planning to sabotage him any way they can.
They proved one thing: They do not have America’s best interests at heart.

Trump: ‘My Job is Not to Represent the World; My Job is to Represent the United States of America’
And, in a line that drew strong applause – although only from the Republican side of the chamber – he added, “My job is not to represent the world; my job is to represent the United States of America.”
While Democratic lawmakers gave a tepid response to that part of Tuesday night’s speech, they did join in a standing ovation when Trump endorsed the historic alliance with NATO, though tempered with a nudge for allies to pay more.
“We expect our partners,” the president continued, “whether in NATO, in the Middle East, or the Pacific, to take a direct and meaningful role in both strategic and military operations, and pay their fair share of the cost. Have to do that.”

Is February 28, 2017, ‘The Night the Democratic Party Died’?
The Democratic Party members watching that speech looked like a party of the living dead. They didn’t know how to react. They didn’t know if they were Americans. They didn’t know who they were.
Every time Trump called for bipartisanship for the good of our country, they winced. They couldn’t stand it and didn’t know how to react because they are the least bipartisan people in the world and they scarcely know what cooperating is.

Whose Side Are You On? Carlson Notes Democrats Groaned When Trump Introduced Victims Of Immigrant Crimes

Democrats Sit on Hands as Trump Pleads for Cooperation
The freeze-out was nearly total. Democrats who had lined the aisles in recent years to be seen hugging President George W. Bush and President Obama as they strode to the rostrum hung back Tuesday night, leaving the president to shake hands almost exclusively with Republicans.

Hilarious: Trump’s Speech So Powerful, Person Who Delivered Dem Response Now Calls Himself A Republican

The Democratic Rebuttal To Trump’s Speech Is Everything Wrong With The Democratic Party
Beshear giving the speech is in itself an admission of failure. You know who’s not giving the speech? The young, promising, telegenic former Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway, who was the presumptive heir to Beshear’s office until he was defeated by double digits by Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin.
Polling for Medicaid expansion and KYnect (the Kentucky exchange) is not as terrible as it is elsewhere, which is not saying much. But it also can’t be ignored that the state elected Bevin, who ran on dismantling the whole thing.
The Republican Party still faces political landmines in its tricky repeal-and-replace plan. But on Tuesday, a septuagenarian former Kentucky governor with a folksy demeanor was simultaneously a laudable recognition by the Democratic Party of who it needs to reach and a devastating admission of how ill-equipped they are to do so. The future’s so bright, they gotta wear bifocals.

I love how Melania got a standing ovation and a big cheer!  Pay attention to how many of the president’s statements got standing ovations and who SAT through them, even when they were as generic as “we are a nation that condemns hate in all its ugly forms.”

Trump’s First Presidential Address to Congress – Full Speech

News, Too

Tonight is President Trump’s first formal address to a joint session of Congress.

Rosie O’Donnell to Lead Anti-Trump Protest Outside White House
CHAIN HER TO THE BUFFET TABLE… PROBLEM SOLVED
The rally — dubbed “A Resistance Address: Defending American Values in a Time of Moral Crisis” — is set to begin Tuesday at 6 p.m. Eastern.
O’Donnell’s decade-long public feud with Trump reached a new low after the election when the former View host shared a video on social media that questioned whether or not Trump’s youngest son, Barron, was autistic. While O’Donnell eventually apologized to Melania Trump for attacking her 10-year-old, the 54-year comedienne ratcheted up her criticism of Trump’s administration.

Democrats Prepare to Troll President Trump During Major Speech to Congress
Each legislator is allowed a handful of tickets for the public gallery, so that interested constituents and guests can be present for what is typically the President’s most important speech of the year.
This year, Democrats will be using their tickets as part of an organized effort to invite the families of illegal immigrants, DREAMers protected by former President Obama’s executive orders on immigration, and Muslim-Americans they claim will be harmed by Trump’s temporary travel ban. (A court has stayed Trump’s travel ban.)

Dems bringing young undocumented immigrants to Trump’s speech
Rep. Ami Bera (D-Calif.) is bringing Alfredo Rivas, a 25-year-old student who came from El Salvador at the age of 13 and wants to be an immigration attorney.
“When people ask me where I’m from, I say ‘California’ but I have worried every day since the election that my family or I could get deported at any time,” Rivas said in a statement.

Trump’s joint session speech to feature anecdotes from listening sessions
“A lot of what went into this came from the sit-downs and listening sessions that President Trump has done with healthcare industry leaders, law enforcement officials, union representatives and coal miners,” a senior White House official told reporters Monday night in reference to the president’s upcoming speech.

The official said Trump is still working with his team to put finishing touches on the major speech which will focus renewing “the American spirit” and providing “an optimistic vision for real Americans.”

“Americans have been waiting for help from their leaders for too long and during his speech the president will let them know that help is on the way,” the official said.

Widow of Murdered Police Officer Invited to Attend Trump’s Address to Congress
Elizabeth Snyder, the wife of murdered St. Louis County police officer Blake Snyder, has been invited by President Donald Trump to attend his address to Congress on Tuesday.
Snyder said she is honored to be invited to sit in House chambers and looks forward to what Trump will say about law enforcement, Fox 2 in St. Louis reported Monday.
Snyder’s husband was killed while responding to a disturbance call on the evening of Oct. 6.
Police believe Blake Snyder was shot dead after he asked to see 18-year-old Trenton Forster’s hands.
He was rushed to the hospital but later succumbed to his injuries.

Trump invites families of those killed by illegal immigrants to speech
President Trump has invited the family members of those killed by illegal immigrants and the widow of Justice Antonin Scalia to attend his address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night.

Maureen McCarthy Scalia will attend the speech, along with Jessica Davis and Susan Oliver — both widows of California police officers killed by an illegal immigrant in 2014.
The president is expected to highlight his campaign to deport illegal immigrants who have committed crimes in the United States.

Times presents ‘news’ that’s just propaganda for Bam
Want to know why President Trump rails about a “dishonest” press? Consider a Page One “news” story in Monday’s New York Times.
The headline, “Widespread Cuts in Trump Budget Bypass Military,” suggests news about the president’s spending plans. But the piece never says much about them — because it gets lost recalling the glories of President Barack Obama to rebut Trump’s claim that he inherited a “mess.”
By the time Obama gave his first speech to Congress (Trump gives his Tuesday), the Times claims, he already had an “impressive string of accomplishments,” including “actions that would ultimately help stabilize the financial and automotive sectors.”
Uh, no: Congress OK’d the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program while George W. Bush was president, and it was TARP that calmed the financial crisis. And the $800 billion “stimulus package” Obama pushed through in his first weeks was a flop. He himself later admitted those “shovel-ready jobs” didn’t exist.
