<Texas> Jeremy Elmore, a 42-year-old retired Army Sniper currently residing in El Paso, Texas, is being hailed a hero after he saved a neighborhood family from 3 violent home intruders late Tuesday evening.
Elmore, who retired from the Army at 41 after giving 21-years of service was spending the night home alone as his wife and 3 young children are visiting family members in Indiana.
According to Elmore, he wasn’t quite ready to go to sleep when he retired to his bedroom around 1:15 AM- so he decided to engage in one of his favorite activities – breaking down and cleaning one of his firearms. The firearm that Elmore decided to break down and clean was his M24 Sniper Rifle (officially referred to as the M24 Sniper Weapon System).
At approximately 1:50 AM – after cleaning and reassembling the rifle, Elmore rested it on the sill of his bedroom window to adjust its scope. While adjusting the scope it unintentionally landed on one of his neighbor across the street’s open windows; Elmore told police and reporters that he was amazed at what he saw happening inside. Elmore told local ABC affiliate reporter Karen Lodestone, “I honestly thought I was dreaming hallucinating at first – it took over a minute for the situation to fully register in my brain”.
What Elmore saw through the high-powered scope on his rifle was – his neighbors, Fredrick and Lydia Cole tied to chairs in their upstairs family room. The couple’s 2-children Douglas(11-years-old) and Daniel (6-years-old) were sitting near their mother – also tied to kitchen-style chairs.
According to Elmore, the mother and children had what looked to be duct tape around their mouths and 3 masked-intruders appeared to be focusing primarily on Fredrick Cole. The 3 masked intruders were holding handguns and were acting in a very violent manner – often destroying the Cole’s property or striking Fredrick Cole in the face with their pistols.
Things seemed to be escalating quickly at the Cole residence and Elmore used his bedroom telephone to call 911. After notifying authorities, Elmore continued to monitor the situation across the street. According to Elmore, while waiting for the police to arrive things continue to escalate rapidly at the Cole residence and he was greatly concerned for the family’s safety. Elmore told reporters that his military training and instinct kicked in and he knew that he had to do something to intervene.Elmore proceeded to load his rifle with the custom 7.62 x 51mm ammunition and stationed himself at his bedroom window. As Elmore continued to watch the situation unfold across the street, the home intruders became increasingly more violent. As one of the intruders held his handgun (later identified as a .45 caliber Taurus 1911) to Mrs. Cole’s head – Elmore took the first shot from his rifle immediately striking his intended target.
According to Elmore and members of the Cole family – the home intruder instantly fell to the floor dropping his weapon in the process. The remaining 2-home intruders were visibly stunned and confused by the incident and gave Elmore enough time to fire 2 additional rounds striking both remaining intruders before they had an opportunity to retaliate.
Police arrived shortly after Elmore’s intervention and discovered 2 of the 3 home-intruders dead upon their arrival. The surviving intruder – since identified as Charles L. Brooke was treated for his injuries at a nearby hospital and has since been arrested and booked into a county jail.
Among those singing praise for Elmore’s heroic actions are the members of the Cole family who have told reporters they owe their lives to Elmore and will never be able to thank him enough or fully express their gratitude for the retired Army Sniper.Screenshot courtesy of Fredrick Cole’s Facebook page.
Police are still investigating the home invasion, however, during a brief press conference, told members of the media that they believe the invasion was motivated by a now-defunct business deal Fredrick Cole had been involved in throughout mid-2016. They believe the intruders intended to harm the Cole family and are grateful for Elmore’s intervention.

Fort Hood, Boston, San Bernardino, Orlando, Tel Aviv, Paris, Brussels, and now London…just to name but a few. And just what do these locals have in common…all have seen carnage, death, and destruction that is the stuff of our worst nightmares perpetrated by the followers of islam… by radical muslims…whether they be homegrown converts or by birth.
Not a Christian or Jew amongst these vile sorts and yet many in our Judeo-Christian nation still refuse to see the simple truth that some truly do not deserve to walk the Earth with civilized men. And some still insist on calling islam a religion and others go even further and call islam a religion of peace. But know that islam is not about peace as the words of their very own most (un)holy of books…the qur’an…says and proves just that.
And while it was a given that the liberal left would oppose President Trump’s travel ban…a ban that would at least temporarily keep the enemy ‘over there’ instead of us laying out the welcome mat for the enemy to come here… sadly some even on the right oppose it as well for they hope that some way somehow we can peacefully live side-by-side together with those wishing us dead. But what these folks forget is the simple fact that the civilized man can never exist in peace alongside those whose vision of peace is subjugation, submission, and of America becoming part of the ever expanding caliphate.
So as we watch Europe being overrun by strong healthy young muslim men…with hardly a woman or child amongst them…as we watch Europe fall to the vanguard of the ultimate invasion that will have Europe becoming the 58th state of the caliphate…here is a little something you need to think about…the caliphate will be gotten both in Europe and here in America by sheer numbers alone with very few shots needing to be fired and without our streets here in America turning red with our American blood.
How so…muslims will simply outnumber us and will do so while we remain in a collective media-driven ‘sleep’ of sorts.
And unless we wake-up to this harsh reality our future will be a future decided by simple math. And the numbers involved are truly staggering…numbers seeming to start small but while we remain sleeping turn into numbers that increase more than two-fold with each generation. In fact, a recent Pew Research Center study…a study done over six years using data from 2,500 censuses and surveys… found that by the middle of this century there will be about 2.8 billion muslims worldwide up from 1.6 billion today. And with islam now being the world’s second-largest religion after Christianity, the numbers say that by 2070 muslims will outnumber Christians worldwide.
Now to further complicate matters, those numbers also show that by 2050, or maybe even a bit sooner, muslims will make up a full 10% of Europe’s total population, as the region’s Christian population will fall from the current 553 million to 454 million. And by 2050 here in the U.S., Christians will decline from more than three-quarters of the current population to just two-thirds in 2050, with muslims outnumbering Jews to become our country’s largest non-Christian group with the number of muslims in America being projected to more than double from today’s 2.6 million to 6.2 million…with some projecting that number to be as high as 8.1 million…thus making up 2.1% (or more) of our total population. And that number is based upon the number of muslims currently living here and does not at this point include the number of muslims expected to flood our country over the next couple of years…unless we can stop it that is.
And still you ask how can this possibly be…how can this happen…again it is simple math…one just has to add up the numbers. Add up that muslim men under the sharia are allowed to have four wives (and most muslims in this country do follow the sharia no matter the media claiming otherwise)…and many even have what is referred to as additional ‘temporary’ wives to ‘use’ at their discretion (prostitutes actually)…and with each wife usually having 4, 5, 6, or more children…simple math dictates that in just twenty years time there will be enough muslims of voting age here in the U.S…and in the U.K. Canada, and Australia as well…to be able to elect our leaders by their sheer numbers alone, especially if there is a candidate that is one of their own. And know that we having more children is not the answer no matter what some of our religious leaders say…for having more children that one can ill afford never is.
Sadly, it has indeed come to just that and like I said it has happened while we have been in the above stated collective ‘sleep’ as to what our future holds…as well as we being ignorant of or just foolishly choosing to ignore past presidential actions…for President Donald Trump is not the first president to place a ban against a specific immigrant group nor will he be the last.
Hopefully you can now see that besides the all-important afore mentioned numbers, precedence has already been set for denying entry into our country those we deem to be hostile…and in this case those rightfully so deemed are muslims…muslims hostile to both our way of life and to the Constitution…the very rule of law we are governed by. And really, why should we take in those who show no interest in assimilating into the fabric of our American society…who show no interest in becoming true red, white, and blue Americans…but who instead want to bend us into submission to ways, ideals, and values so reprehensible to not only our Judeo-Christian faiths, thinking, and beliefs, but to what we know is simple right vs. wrong.
Simple right vs. wrong itself shows the followers of islam to be a threat to the security of our country for all one has to do is open a history book or read the qur’an to see that islam’s followers cannot nor do they want to live amongst us, that is unless they have the upper hand…the controlling hand…something Europe sees happening in real time as muslim invaders…in the guise of calling themselves refugees…rape, kill, and plunder their way through Europe…and we are next on their agenda.
And know that the sharia… the very law islam demands… the very law muslims deem to be higher than that of our Constitution…also shows that islam’s followers…followers who are roughly 1400 years behind the West’s becoming more just and civilized…followers who still condone jihad, torture, pedophilia, child marriages, treating women as mere chattel…just to name a few…proves they just do not now nor will they ever fit into our American society for how can they when they deem life and liberty below their desire for 72 virgins in death.
And as for most of those (obviously not all) who say they have either converted to Christianity or who are more ‘moderate’ in their views…remember the word taqiyya…the islamic juridical term whose meaning relates to when a muslim is both encouraged and allowed, under sharia law, to lie to help achieve the goal of islamic conquest.
But shouldn’t common sense itself dictate that since most, if not almost all, terrorist attacks over the past decade or so have been perpetrated by muslims. Remember back to my opening line…Fort Hood, Boston, San Bernardino, Orlando, Tel Aviv, Paris, Brussels, and now London…just a few of the attacks done by muslims…attacks committed in the name of islam and allah…attacks as a dry run leading up to what will surely be a major attack again happening here on American soil…an attack that will have 9/11 paling in comparison.
It is coming and probably soon for lone wolves are being awoken by those whose commands they follow…lone wolves as in terrorist themselves…lone wolves arriving on our shores who will breed like animals with the sole purpose of increasing muslim numbers.
And back it comes full-circle to numbers…ever increasing muslim numbers…numbers being the determining factor in who will be the final victor in the war of clashing civilizations. And sadly it seems that victor will not be us for how can we win that war when we openly allow the enemy into our country…when we allow the enemy to set foot on our shores…when we know that it is legal to ban that enemy as precedence and standing has already been set yet we do not.
And so America will indeed lose the war to numbers…numbers we could have easily stopped but did not, and all because we caved to the god of political correctness known as the kumbaya liberal left. May God our Father forgive us for what we have done…or should I say for what we have not done.

Dear Mr. President
Denial. We’d rather make jokes about it, but in our most sober of moments, the ones we try to have when we are alone, without mirrors to our feelings of hopelessness or terror, in these moments we understand with deadly clarity the power to destroy as well as heal belongs most to denial, for denial is an enemy that we invite behind our carefully maintained walls. Denial is our frenemy. Here in America our government has been selling our great nation to the highest bidder. I’ll get to the how in a minute. Shoot, we have plenty of time to armchair quarterback this one; but before I do, let’s at least agree that we all knew about this. I cannot imagine anyone doesn’t agree with me that since President Carter spent his last day in the White House, the richest people in the world have been allowed to join forces to become a force that has become a law unto itself, and that that thing has relentlessly, and without a shred of mercy, thrown itself upon America, and savaged our people, our land, and our lives. If we don’t agree on that, well, then nothing I say to you is going to change your mind. But, c’mon, let down your denial. Deep down, maybe not so deep, you know I’m right.
Glass Steagall, union busting, the FCC act of 1996, antitrust law restructuring, executive order powers, ALL foreign trade agreements. Let’s just look at the first of these scourges and the last (we don’t have THAT much time). Glass Steagall was a law that simply put, forbade banks from becoming directly involved in trading stocks and futures. Either you understand that one or you don’t. Hillary voted to remove Glass Steagall, an act passed in the wake of the failure of 5000 banks during the depression that worked right up until the time it was removed by a majority of nearly the entire congress and senate (senator Bernie Sanders being nearly a lone crusader filibustering for nearly 30 hours alone against removal). It’s gone now pardners! And promptly all the banks failed! WHO KNEW!!! Yeah. Now, what’s damned important to know about this, is that you signed yourself and ALL of your family, present day to the unknown future to a damned bank note, yes a loan agreement, to PAY for that bit of daylight robbery. People try to make this complicated, but many the prosecutor has come forward to offer prosecution for this rank con game, but many are those who have taken a bit of that tainted money to say ringingly “that’s NOT on the table!”.
Now trade agreements. I’ll make this real simple, why would you, or I, or Joe the rag man go to the poorest part of town, to people with the least resources, and a history of burgling your business, looking for a partner!!!???? What’s that all about? What got into us that when those men and women of our very own government sold us into slavery, yes I said it slavery. What else will or seem like when those who will never know you call the shots for America with the alternative being foreclosure? You know and fear foreclosure. We all do. The lights go off, accompanied by the water, gas, and Internet. The ATM card doesn’t work, and a tow truck shows up to repossess your car. Your card has been declined. And here folks, capricious, fickle denial will skip off happily with all your stuff leaving you with…well, nothing.
What I fear most is that we will never have the courage to look at lives that have been foreclosed upon. I fear we are so weak that we will endorse our children’s slavery as the 18th and 19th Welsh and Scottish coal miners did; offering them up to our lords, and lairds, cringing, begging not to have our dignifying fig leaf of denial stripped away.
They say support our president. Tens of thousands are saying support our president; angry unto rage over the overt attacks on the president’s stumbles. What I said, and say again, is save your president. He needs your help. Let tens of thousands of people send this article, this message to our president at @realdonaldteump. Soon. He can only hear the voices inside the beltway, and if he is a good man, he will come out and meet us. Meet our families. See the destruction that has been wrought upon us by the globalists. Share this, or call your aunt Hattie, or just send it yourself to @realdonaldtrump.
Hear us Mr. President! Help us to find our way, and we will give you the light to find it.
Sunday morning, United Airlines prohibited two girls from boarding their flight because they were wearing leggings and the internet is up in arms. The two girls were supposed to be catching a flight from Minneapolis to Denver when they were stopped at the gate for being dressed inappropriately.
The incident was first reported on Twitter by Shannon Watts, a passenger at the airport who was waiting to board a flight to Mexico. In a telephone interview from Mexico on Sunday afternoon, Ms. Watts said she noticed two visibly upset teenage girls leaving the gate next to hers. Both were wearing leggings.
As we watch the internet almost devour itself calling this “sexism,” let’s take a look at the cold hard facts. This was not sexism, as many would love to believe. This was simply the implementation of the rules that have been in place for years. I have flown as a standby passenger countless times and have recognized the dress code and the airline rules that come with being such a passenger. If you want to fly standby and avoid paying for a full priced ticket, you follow the rules of the company allowing you to do so. Plain and simple. The girls were flying standby and not following the rules so they were not allowed to fly, unfortunately for United, they happened to be female and now United has to deal with the intolerant, rule breaking society we live in today.

The Paul Ryan Presidency Is a Good Question
This is actually a good question, why in the world would we ever consider a Paul Ryan Presidency? The list of reasons against such an occurrence are so numerous, it’s astounding that anyone would even raise such a question. That is anyone who is looking for honest change from the status quo that Washington politics has become.
First and foremost, say Trump were to be impeached for some reason the next one in line is Pence. So far, no scandal has been linked to Pence other than the fact that he is staunchly conservative regarding social issues. Vice President Pence is well liked by the Republican establishment, so barring health issues, death, or assassination, I don’t see him being removed from office. But it seems this question has been asked so bear with me as we explore this topic a bit.
On November 8, 2016, the American people came out in droves to vote for a candidate who talked about the very things that those of main street USA had been discussing for years to no avail. This candidate spoke to the very hearts and souls of the working men and women who felt all but forgotten and disenfranchised by those in Washington. The previous eight years of a stagnant economy, the government takeover of healthcare, corruption, and divisive politics had awoken a sleeping giant and the country was ripe for an outsider that spoke the language of mainstream America.
And along came Trump, the consummate outsider who spoke without the eloquence of most seasoned politicians, but more like the average Joe on the street. When he talked, you felt like he was talking to you, not at you or down to you. MAGA aka Make America Great Again became the mantra that would take the country by storm. America first resonated to millions who had previously been overlooked in the past in favor of identity politics. It resonated so strongly with We the People that even when Trump said things that would be career suicide for most politicians, it only served to endear him even more to the people. He was like them, he made mistakes, he was human. No matter what the opposition brought up about his past, the people could not be swayed.
Fast forward to today and we see a Presidency that is under attack even by those in his own party. You see, they never even envisioned he would win the election, yet there he is and the Washington elite wants nothing to do with it or his plans. Talk of impeachment is being bandied about amongst the democrats as they attempt to embroil this administration in the Russian scandal. Two months into this administration and President Trump still has not managed to get his full cabinet past the nomination process and into their selected positions.
Investigations and senate hearings over wiretapping, ties to Russia have taken the forefront, and the media have become like sharks that smell blood in the water. This administration does seem hard pressed to deal with these things and put them to rest, and certainly,President Trump’s tweets aren’t helping matters in that area.
So enter stage left, Paul Ryan, the golden boy of the Republican Party, past vice presidential candidate, and now Speaker of the House. Paul Ryan is the polar opposite of Trump in that he is the consummate political insider, polished, and highly regarded as a fiscal conservative bean counter. He is also heavily indebted to special interest.
Ryan is a big proponent of the H1 B visas that import cheaper foreign labor, open borders, amnesty, and open trade that has devastated manufacturing in this country. The budget he put forward during the Obama Presidency was also criticized by Ryan’s own party because it basically gave Obama everything he wanted. And let’s not forget that before their marriage, Ryan’s wife who hails from a wealthy democratic family, wasa lobbyist for Insurance companies and big pharma.
One has only to look at the 1st district in Wisconsin, Paul Ryan’s district to see why one should not even consider a Ryan Presidency. The massive loss of manufacturing in his district has left a landscape of abandoned factories, unemployment, illegal immigrants, drugs, gang violence, and desperately poor neighborhoods that were once considered thriving middle class neighborhoods. I lived in his district for years and saw this all up close and personal.
His latest claim to fame is the “repeal and replace” Obama care debacle. While the mainstream media is fond of calling it Trump care, make no mistake this plan was put together by Ryan. Ryan care 2.0 for one did not repeal Obama care, but rather changed a few things around, bailed out insurance companies and did absolutely nothing to address the very real problems and rising costs that Obama care brought to the American people. I for one was deeply disappointed that Trump would even consider this bill, which strayed a great deal from the plan he put on his website while he was running for office. Even some members of the Republican Party could not vote for it and I applaud them for sticking to their guns. Luckily it was pulled in the final hours before the vote. We can all be grateful for that because we dodged a huge bullet on this one. If passed this would have guaranteed Trump only one term. It leaves me to wonder if that was the plan considering Ryan stated unequivocally during the campaign that he would not and could not ever support a Trump Presidency.
Do I think that Trump will be the perfect President who will magically solve all our nations’ woes? No, but I do think he’s gone a long way in waking up a sleeping giant and the movement he created is taking this country by storm. I strongly believe that he has opened things up enough to begin to allow a change in the two party system we’ve been forced to accept for years.
So while some may fantasize about a Paul Ryan Presidency, the reality is that it simply will not happen during this term.
(Clevenger & Witt Media Group)
I think Trump will pull it off! Somewhere between the Russians, healthcare and Paul Ryan, Donald Trump sits in a whirlwind of political activity. It’s all new to him. He is used to a streamlined, productive organization, with energetic people, single minded, with the success of the organization, and its goals firmly in mind; everything the government is NOT!
As Paul Ryan rearranged the deck chairs on the Obamacare Titanic, Trump took the pulse of the gay men’s club, referred to lovingly as Congress, peed on the fire, and called in the dogs. He was NOT beaten! Healthcare is not complicated, it’s just that Obamacare has it so screwed up that it’s hard to unscrew it. Remember how back in the day when we had the “clap,” and one shot of penicillin would take care of it, then along about the eighties or so we got “super clap?” Well, that’s Obamacare!
Trump pulled back, took a breath and suggested working with the democrats. Everyone’s butt fell off. Can you imagine? The very idea of a president engineering a coalition of republicans and democrats in order to make America great again. Both sides of the isle quickly understood that such an idea would never work. The only thing these guys and gals have agreed on in the last eight years is Trans-gender restrooms.
But, I think Trump will pull it off. The art of the deal is just that, the ART of the deal! The ability to bind minds together in common purpose for the good of the whole. It’s time we all came together and put America first. That’s not racist friends and neighbors. Just this weekend, in a telephone call with the Prime Minister of Australia, THAT man said his main interest is Australia while he tried to shove a bunch of so-called “refugees” up our butts, and got MAD when Trump suggested checking them for gunpowder on their hands. Now, I’m just a simple old boy from Austin, but these people are too wild for Australia, and they want to ship them HERE! Did I miss something here? And, yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m a racist, but I took a look at the numbers of people streaming in from “anywhere” in Africa as compared to, say, Denmark? You think?
But, I think Trump will pull it off. He jumped on this horse, and didn’t make eight this time. He’ll out more grip on his glove next time. What is going to make it work is in spite of the dysfunctional government the PEOPLE proved on November 8, that MOST of the voting machines still work, and George Soros simply doesn’t have the money to hire enough protestors or get Hillary into rehab, and when it’s all said and done President Trump WILL “make the 8,” leap from the saddle, tipping his “Make America Great Again” hat to the American people! Yeah, I think Trump will pull it off. Remember you heard it here first.
So far, I can only find liberals “confused” about what fake news is. It’s obvious they are not confused, they are prevaricating, because they bring no evidence forward when you ask them to prove it. The exhibit no interest in discussing details, one of The 11 Tactics of Highly Deceptive People.Spotting The Fake News Con Men
They are trying to blur and avoid that which they know is obvious, which is exhibited by asking them “Columbo questions” – interrogator styled questions – to see what information they avoid discussing.The Experiment
I tried showing tens of them Podesta’s own email list of network toadies. There was a flurry of tactics brought forth which insured there was not a chance that would be discussed, which indicates they know the list of fake news networks. They exhibited they DID NOT WANT TO KNOW which networks were colluding with the liars around Hillary.The Fake News List From Podesta
These are the media outlets which openly sent delegates to meet with Hillary’s liar, the pedophile Podesta, to set up her “public image” during the election. Keep this list handy. Notice which outlets are missing: Zerohedge, Drudge….conservative news outlets.
If someone quotes those fake news sources listed above – tell them:
“You quoted media that was secretly meeting with a democrat leader – tell us why we should trust sources colluding with these known liars, now proven to insidious coordinate with lies in their emails. It appears you want to spread lies if you use these sources. Why do you want to consort with proven liars?”
Do NOT engage a liar on any other topic than to discuss their lies, as prescribed in Saul Lofgrinsky’s Rules to Confront Radicals .
“Those who promise to relieve us of the burden through their personal or ideological excellence, those who claim to hold the Magic Beans, are simply confidence men. Their emergence is inevitable, and our individual opposition to and rejection of them, as they emerge, must be blunt and sure; if they are arrogant, willful, duplicitous, or simply wrong, they must be replaced, else they will consolidate power, and use the treasury to buy votes, and deprive us of our liberties.” – David Mamet
President Trump and the Republican-led Congress are using a special rule to do away with many of President Obama’s regulations.
Since Trump entered the White House two months ago, the House has passed 14 resolutions disapproving of Obama-era regulations under the Congressional Review Act (CRA). The Senate has approved 10 resolutions, and President Trump has signed three measures into law.
The CRA allows Congress to do away with regulations through an expedited legislative process that prevents the minority from using the Senate’s filibuster. The catch is that Congress only has a window of 60 legislative days in which it can reach back into 2016 to repeal a regulation through this process.
The White House has indicated Trump intends to sign all of the measures approved by Congress with the use of the CRA. The deadline for Trump to sign these repeals is May 9.
Here’s what Trump and Congress have done so far.
The Security and Exchange Commission’s resource extraction rule issued last July requires oil companies to disclose payments of more than $100,000 made to foreign governments.
Democrats say the rule targets corruption, but Republicans argue it puts U.S. companies at a disadvantage. President Trump signed legislation under the CRA revoking the rule on Valentine’s Day.
The Interior Department’s stream protection rule prohibits coal miners from setting up shop within 100 feet of streams, rivers, or lakes. Democrats say the rule will protect groundwater, but Republicans see it as another example Obama’s so-called “War on Coal.” This was the first disapproval resolution passed by the current Congress, but the second one that Trump signed, on Feb. 16.
The Social Security Administration’s gun regulation requires the agency to report disability beneficiaries who it believes are mentally ill to the FBI’s background check system. Gun control supporters say this will keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people. But the National Rifle Association says it violates the Second Amendment and the due process rights of disability beneficiaries, who may be targeted by the government even though they are not be a danger to society. Trump signed a measure repealing the rule on Feb. 28.
Congress has voted to repeal another seven regulations, five of which have been sent to the White House and are awaiting Trump’s signature.
The other two are expected to be sent to the president in the coming week.
As with other pieces of legislation, the president has 10 days to act or the bill automatically becomes law. For some of the regulatory repeals, the 10-day window closes next week.
The “blacklisting” rule requires federal contractors to report labor violations. It was a joint rule issued by the Defense Department, General Services Administration and NASA. Democrats hope the rule will discourage the federal government from doing business with companies that treat their employees poorly. But Republicans say unions could use this information to “blackmail” federal contractors during labor negotiations. Congress voted to repeal the rule on March 6, but it didn’t arrive on Trump’s desk until 10 days later.
The Labor Department’s drug testing rule would apply to people seeking unemployment compensation who lost safety-sensitive jobs. The rule would allow states to deny their benefits claim if they test positive for drugs. Congress voted to overturn the rule on March 14, and sent it to the president’s desk a week later.
The Interior Department’s land use planning rule was overturned by Congress on March 7, and sent to President Trump’s desk on March 16.
The Education Department’s school accountability rule would hold states responsible for providing “every child, regardless of race, income, background, or where they live” with a “high-quality education.” Democrats say the rule protects students who live in low-income neighborhoods who might otherwise receive a poor education. But Republicans argue states should have the final decision on how to best educate their students. Congress voted to repeal the rule on March 9, and sent it to Trump’s desk on March 16.
The Education Department’s teacher preparation standards would measure the performance of educators. Congress voted to strike down the rule on March 8, and sent it to Trump on March 16.
The Interior Department’s predator control regulations would apply to national wildlife refuges in Alaska. Congress voted to overturn the rule on March 21, but has yet to send it to Trump.
The Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) last December finalized new requirements for construction and manufacturing companies to maintain records of workplace-related injuries and illnesses. Congress voted to repeal the rule on March 22, but has yet to send it to Trump.
The House has passed another four disapproval resolutions under the Congressional Review Act and the Senate has passed one, which the other chamber must still vote on.
The Interior Department’s rule for methane and natural gas is intended to limit emissions. The House voted to repeal the rule on Feb. 3, but the Senate has yet to take it up.
The Department of Health and Human Services last December issued new health care protections for women. The House voted to repeal the rule on Feb. 16, but the Senate has yet to consider the bill.
The Federal Communication Commission’s internet privacy rules would prohibit service providers from selling information about the online search histories of their customers without their permission. The Senate voted to strike down the rule on March 23, but the House has yet to take it up.
Republicans have also introduced at least 14 other disapproval resolutions under the CRA that neither chamber has voted on, which could be taken up in the near future.

After a short stent working for the UK’s Daily Telegraph and a series of business corruption charges were levelled against him in England Yiannopoulos obtained approval to migrate to the United States on an O-1 Visa for “aliens with special abilities.”
In October of 2015 Yiannopoulos began as editor of Breitbart Tech. He used his position to make inroads with Conservative college groups, who began to invite him to lecture at their respective campuses in favor of free speech and against political correctness.
Yiannopoulos claims to be both a practicing Catholic and a Conservative but if you listen to what he says carefully it is easy to see that he actually does not even attempt to practice Catholicism (in word or deed) and is actually an advocate for Cultural Marxism. He appears to have no problem lying about both however.
Yiannopoulos is notable to DefendtheFamily.com because he advocates for a Cultural Marxist sexual ethic among Conservative youth groups. His advocacy to date has involved three basic steps:
Despite the fact that Yiannopoulos claims to be Conservative a brief summary of Cultural Marxist thought coupled with a few quotes from his interviews will highlight the chief principle underlying his warped world view brightly.
Cultural Marxism in America proliferated alongside the rise of Frankfurt School Critical Theorist Herbert Marcuse, the “Father of the New Left.” Marcuse studied under Continental philosopher Martin Heidegger, updated Marxism to suit modern conditions, and laid the ideological groundwork for 1960’s collegiate communist radicals and sexual revolutionaries. His goal was to convince “young whites and militant ghetto blacks to mount a revolution” and overthrow the United States government. He is the author of Eros and Civilization, Repressive Tolerance, and coined the now famous phrases “Free Love” and “Make Love Not War.” 
Marcuse’s work initiated a Marxist-Leninist process known as “Demoralization” in America, the first of a four phase process designed to destroy a nation from within so that it can be taken over by Marxists in a revolution, either forcibly or bureaucratically –what Antonio Gramsci referred to as, “the long march through the institutions.”
The remaining three phases include Destabilization, Crisis/Insurgency, and Normalization.
The Urban Dictionary defines Demoralization as the “gradual process of destroying all traditions, languages, religions, individuality, government, family, and law and order to re-assemble society in the future as a communist utopia.”
Critical Theory is Marxism’s modern intellectual blueprint for Demoralization. It combines the work of Sigmund Freud and Karl Marx to see history not merely through the lens of class struggle for equal ownership of the means of production but more broadly and on a deeper level as the overall struggle for pleasure against a society’s authoritarian impulse to repress pleasure for the sake of profit (longer work hours, less pay, etc. equates to less pleasure for the poor, more for the rich).
Marcuse helped transplant the chief engine for the Marxist process of Demoralization, The Institute for Social Research (ISR), from Germany to Geneva, and finally to the United States in 1935. It was housed at Columbia University.Today college campuses around the nation from the University of Michigan to the University of New Mexico and Sacramento State University house satellite centers. The U.S. headquarters today appears to be The New School for Social Research, a full blown university in Greenwich Village, New York founded by among others, Colombia University Professors like John Dewey who refused to take an oath of loyalty to the United States. The college now has an enrollment of over 2,000 faculty members and about 10,000 students –all studying Marxism.
Marcuse argued that a society’s imposed sexual boundaries and norms must be overturned by “Free Love,” which he referred to as “Polymorphous Perversity,” an overly intellectual phrase he stole from Freud. Polymorphous Perversity is the Cultural Marxist’s ostensible final goal for a society it is trying to Demoralize. It will be achieved when all sexual behaviors are leveled and seen as equally valid, except those which take place within the bounds of marriage, which according to Marcuse must be destroyed because lifelong monogamous matrimony is considered a sexually discriminative and pleasurably repressive institution.
The real reason Marxism seeks Polymorphous Perversity and the destruction of the concept of marriage of course is because the two goals work in tandem to destroy the traditional family structure, which is the institution through which each new rising generation learns to be self-reliant. Self-reliant individuals are the backbone of freedom and Capitalism. Millions of self-reliant individuals and families constitute the building blocks of a self-reliant and free nation. Marxists therefore see the family as an institution they must bring to its knees, so that the individual is reliant upon and loyal only to the state.
Marxism of course has never produced equality of income or Polymorphous Perversity –both are absurd concepts that would never work in reality. These concepts are usually abandoned for Marxists after they have taken over a society. Marxism’s real purpose is to serve as a vehicle for revolution and the subsequent enslavement of the world to an elite.
In order to drive a society toward the goal of Polymorphous Perversity Marxist activists must engage in and openly promote a very specific kind of sex –that which is stigmatized, taboo, and outside of the bounds of the socially normative. Once a new behavior is normalized activists must continue to raise the bar until all behaviors are equalized and nothing is considered taboo.
From Marcuse’s perspective sex ought to be enjoyed by anybody, with anybody, any number of bodies, or anything, including children, objects, and animals –so long as the behavior is considered “stigmatized.”
Now back to Yiannopoulos.
Yiannopoulos’ Marcuse inspired speaking tour is entitled, “The Dangerous Faggot Tour.” He essentially spends a couple of hours convincing intellectually vulnerable college Republicans and Libertarians to support his politically incorrect “freedom of speech” to argue in favor of and embody the principle of banishing all sexual restraints by tolerating and defending Marcuse’ Marxist psycho-sexual category of “Polymorphous Perversity” –in all but name.
For example, Yiannopoulos starts out by telling students that he only dates black homosexuals because it offends his mother’s sensibilities.
He then takes the concept a step further when he tells students that he “only likes black di**” because the practice of inter-racial homosexuality is primarily “transgressive” –a violation of accepted or imposed boundaries or norms. He then states that all homosexuality is primarily “transgressive” and that is why he likes it.
Yiannopoulos then takes the concept all the way by specifically stating that he is only erotically attracted to behaviors that are “forbidden” or considered “taboo.”
For many Yiannopoulos appears to be a new category, one that they can’t quite seem to figure out. It is clear however that Yiannopoulos performs as an embodiment of Polymorphous Perversity –an old Marxist category that sexual revolutionaries have been waiting a long time to feel safe enough to unleash; a “Marcuse-O-Sexual.”
This analysis squares with the fact that Yiannopoulos spends much of his time critiquing the broad concept of political correctness and promoting free speech. He does this to unlock the door of the Conservative mind, which he then hopes to crack open to Polymorphous Perversity. It is his way of disarming and desensitizing Conservatives to the Marxist campaign to overthrow societal more’s, boundaries, and norms for socially acceptable behavior relating to Marcuse’s pleasure principle in general, and regarding Polymorphous Perversity in particular.
This is the agenda of Yiannopoulos.
Yiannopoulos provokes because he seeks attention. He seeks attention because his medium is his message –himself, as exemplar of a post “born gay” next step for sexual identity politics.
Yiannopoulos wants to open the American mind to a new pan-sexual identity cult, which is nothing more than old Frankfurt School Marxism as outlined in Eros and Civilization, play for play. He is attempting to do to our current culture what Kinsey did in the 40’s, even under the guise of Catholicism and Conservatism!
Yiannopoulos is not a simply provocateur but a calculated promoter of the Cultural Marxist concept of Polyamorous Perversity. Wake up America!
Consider Yiannopoulos’ language on the Joe Rogan Experience radio/internet program, bragging that he lost his virginity in an “interracial five-some with two drag queens” at thirteen years old.
Who knows if the story is true, but every angle of the statement is meant to challenge norms and mores.
Unfortunately at fourteen years old Yiannopoulos was molested by a Catholic Priest, but he states that he doesn’t believe the incident was abusive. In fact, he states that he is “grateful” for the priest that molested him!
If it wasn’t for Father Michael I would have given far less good head. I was in my teens… I was a very mature fourteen year old. It wasn’t molestation. It was perfectly consensual. When I was 14, I was the predator. I was the instigator. I was chasing everybody. I was aggressively seeking out the sexual company of adults because I knew it would horrify people. It was my way of rebelling. I think I would make a good priest.
Yiannopoulos then claims to be an “angel of God” and to have a “first class ticket into Heaven” before calling his molester a “great guy” and protecting the abuser by refusing to give his name. Yiannopoulos went on to speak vaguely of another experience stating that, “some of the boys there were very young around that time. There were a lot of drugs, a lot of twinks who were running around having sex with older men.”
Again, Yiannopoulos refuses to name who he is speaking of in order to protect their identity and ability to molest more boys.
On another radio program entitled Drunken Peasants Yiannopoulos continues advocating for man-boy love, stating that it can be a “hugely positive experience” for a boy. He goes on to say that sexual abusers can serve as a “rock” and provide “safety” for boys:
In the homosexual world, particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men – the sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship – the relationships in which those older men help those young boys to discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable sort of rock.
Yiannopoulos went on in the same interview to joke about having sex with both objects and animals. He often discusses a time he claims he was offered $20,000 to have sex with a stranger as well.
Yiannopoulos recently excited some social conservatives by claiming that he was thinking about going back to heterosexuality, but he went on to explain that his reason for making the statement was because being gay is no longer seen as taboo. It has become overtly mainstream. He laments that too many gays have become bourgeoisie, driving nice cares and going to Pilates. He states:
It’s almost seen as a mark of moral virtue to be homosexual… I think that I might have to join the only remaining marginalized group, which is straight white males, and become heterosexual for a while.
He goes on to combat what he perceives as sexual repression on the left by remaining 90’s second-wave feminists, accusing them of being “sex police” and by referring to Donald Trump in sexual innuendo as “Daddy.”
Lastly, Yiannopoulos appears to seek to divide and conquer Conservatives to create a new party, one allied with disaffected leftists. He states:
The Republican Party is no longer fit for purpose… I want the existing structure of parties to be ripped apart and something new to be imagined, something new to be constructed. I want disaffected liberals who are most of my fans actually, and libertarians, and classical liberals… to join together.
If Yiannopoulos is willing to state that he is a “practicing Catholic” while engaging in and promoting this kind of sexual behavior, which is an obvious lie, then why would he have a problem portraying himself as a “Conservative” while promoting the exact opposite agenda, that of Marxism?
Recently some Cultural Conservatives unfamiliar with Yiannopoulos have been overly sympathetic toward him. They believe he is simply an abuse victim standing against the New Left and political correctness. Nothing could be further from the truth. He is actually a New Left Cultural Marxist category incarnate, co-opting the Conservative movement to divide it and weaponize it’s defectors against the Cultural Conservatism’s Judeo-Christian values of faith and family. Faith undergirds “eternal” matrimony. Matrimony in turn undergirds the family, which is the institution in which self-reliance is learned. Both faith and family must be destroyed to usher in the Frankfurt School Marxist sexual and pedophilic nightmare envisioned by Marcuse and embodied by Milo Yiannopoulos.
God help us.
For decades the globalists have been leading us down the primrose path towards their fantasy of a new world order run by them and their fellow progressive central planners at the UN. Their four horseman of the American apocalypse; George the First, Billary, George the Second, and BHO never saw a multinational surrender of sovereignty they didn’t like. From NAFTA to TPP from the WTO to the T-TIP they have sought every opportunity to enroll us as just one more state in their fever dream of a super state with them in control.
Currently the United States has free trade agreements in force with 20 countries. These are:
The interesting thing about most of these agreements is that while we allow goods from these countries to enter our nation duty-free and compete with our own manufacturers our partners do not. They have various mechanisms to make sure our goods cannot compete in their markets. They add tariffs by any other name top our goods as the arrive and give subsidies to their goods as they leave.
This anything but level playing field that our leaders have subjected us to is economically the equivalent of playing Russian roulette with a semi-automatic pistol. It may be exciting but there isn’t any way to win.
Not only have we surrendered our ability to add tariffs to protect our markets against foreign disruption and the eventual destruction of our industrial base we have witnessed. It also deprives the federal government of a source of revenue which was once enough to run the whole affair without an income tax. It is not only these two negatives which point out the bad side of this bad deal. Our globalist leaders have also signed agreements that make American enterprises and individuals subject to the edicts of the bewildering array of organizations and boards which make up the strands designed to hold the American Gulliver down.
Finally in President Donald Trump we have a leader who wants to put America first! Finally we have a leader who is not dedicated to managing our decline but instead dedicated to our renewal. We have chosen a leader not to lead us gentle into that good night. Today we no longer must look at the sun setting upon us. Today we can see a new sun rise, a new morning in America. Instead of a leader who apologizes for our History we have a leader who proudly proclaims we will make America great again.
Case in Point:
According to the Financial Times, President Donald Trump’s administration is preparing to ignore any rulings by the World Trade Organization that it sees as an affront to U.S. sovereignty.
According to the Times the report says, “Ever since the United States won its independence, it has been a basic principle of our country that American citizens are subject only to laws and regulations made by the U.S. government — not rulings made by foreign governments or international bodies.” The report continued, “Accordingly, the Trump administration will aggressively defend American sovereignty over matters of trade policy.”
The Wall Street Journal also reviewed the document. They stated that the policy represents a dramatic departure from the Obama administration, which emphasized international economic rules and the authority of the WTO, a body that regulates trade and resolves disputes among its members. The report also states that the Trump Administration will use, “all possible sources of leverage to encourage other countries to open up their markets.”
This is akin to a Second Declaration of Independence. No more will we continue to surrender our sovereignty, the sovereignty our ancestors, our brothers and our sisters have bled and died to establish and protect be diluted in the committees of nameless faceless bureaucrats where America has no more voice than El Salvador.
Strike up the band! Wave the flags. A campaign became a movement. A movement became a revolution. And this revolution is determined to make America great again!

At least one person was arrested after violence broke out at a pro-Trump rally in Huntington Beach, California, on Saturday, where counter-protesters allegedly pepper strayed and attacked pro-Trump demonstrators.
According to the Orange County Register, fights broke out when a crowd of pro-Trump demonstrators wearing red “Make America Great Again” hats and waving American flags passed a group of about 40 anti-Trump counter-protesters.
From the Register:
In no time, people were shoving, pushing others to the ground and throwing punches.
One protester peppered sprayed a Trump supporter, and a crowd broke off and ran into a parking lot, where a person was beaten.
One of the counter-protesters told the newspaper that an anti-Trump protester only used pepper spray in defense, but other accounts dispute that. The Los Angeles Times reports that the man with the pepper spray, dressed in black with a mask, attacked first after which pro-Trump demonstrators fought back by tackling, punching and kicking the man.
Social media captured the confrontations:

According to the Register, the “Make America Great Again” rally at Bolsa Chica State Beach drew about 1,000 demonstrators, most of them pro-Trump while just several dozen were anti-Trump.
Event organizers said they were gathering on the beach to show support for Trump, law enforcement, and military veterans. The event coincided with about 40 other similar demonstrations nationwide on Saturday.
The Paul Ryan Presidency?
Before moving on to the issue of presidential succession, it is imperative that we have a reason to do so. When Ted Kennedy wished to run against then president Jimmy Carter, he was asked point blank in public, why? After a few minutes of fulminating, senator Kennedy had no answer but his own personal ambition. Even that egomaniacal fool could see that this motive would not suffice, and the odor soon dissipated. So, what reason exists to examine the succession of the current POTUS since he 1. Is still breathing, 2. Is immune to scandal, since only persons with a sense of shame and conscience are vulnerable to that, an inconvenience he clearly does not bother with, and 3. There is no evidence of wrongdoing on his part that cannot be explained by his theory of alternate realities? He must seem to many of his supporters, who declare themselves unconditionally committed, perfect for the job of changing America. He is like the CEO of a large corporation; given absolute control over the company, its resources, and the people who work for it. Absolute power, without bothersome controls. Like and share if you agree.
Well, I for one, thought it would do the nation good to have a single minded
Washington outsider as the prez for a term. Kind of a chance to sort our cards so to speak. I mean, it isn’t as if history doesn’t give us examples of presidents who came from some background other than political. And some successful ones too. Dwight Eisenhower comes to mind. But it’s just possible that the world has changed much since those bygone paragons. It may be that a president, and possibly even members of his cabinet would have experience with the executive. It has become increasingly clear to Americans struggling to stay above the waterline that our president is not only not a populist, but that his willingness to cut the cut the lifestyle of millions of Americans already perilously close to the abyss exceeds the ability of the most conservative members of congress, for fear of bankrupting their districts; for God knows as well as we do that conservative districts are poor districts. The upshot of the congressmen polled on the issue of TrumpCare was “can’t do it, my district is too Medicaid dependent”.
So what? Glad you asked! First, forget entirely that he drew a line in the sand and we waited with baited breath for the appointed hour, only to hear a dull pop, and a far away “oh well”. Concentrate on what’s important is what I say. What’s important is this: most of president Trumps supportive base are those who will be most hurt by legislation proposed in the president’s healthcare plan. No wonder that he practically held a gun to their heads. But the days of the Cheney politburo are dead.
Those who are slow to understand this have not read even a synopsis of the bill, slow or not, as the president’s agenda faces battle after battle; tax reform, public education funding, banking laws, it will be apparent to all but a few.
Next, let us consider the path of a modern political executive. Unlike a corporate executive, a POTUS faces hidden potholes and crevasses that are not among the normal variables which influence sudden disaster in the corporate world. And, anyone knows, a Monica Lewinsky or a botched job of premium stock transfer might jump out of concealment at any time. Just sayin’. Add sudden threat of a high nature to absentee base, toss in a media frenzied by blood, and well, anybody got Mike Pence cell number? Seriously guys, there is, as I pointed out earlier, a lot of smoke and mirrors right now. And, to be honest, the president and his public optics people are not handling their stumbles particularly well. I’m not saying don’t support your president, in fact, I’m saying the opposite. Save your president. Read his healthcare bill, or at least read a summary of it on a reliable site. I recommend politico because they tell it how it is, even if they don’t like it. Then write to him, or his staff, and let them know what your future, and that of your family would be if they passed it. Heck, you ought to send your congressman a thank you note for not passing it using the same rationale.
Persephone persuaded Hades to allow her to bring spring to the world each year in return for being his consort in the underworld. Can we not be proud American citizens who serve a president who hears their voice, their plea that he embody the hope they have for America’s return to greatness? Or are we looking at a Paul Ryan Presidency?Read, learn, then ask of him what you will.
With the failure of the Health Bill we must consider a very real possibility, The Paul Ryan Presidency. It’s unprecedented. Never happened before. It’s like the Maytag Repaiman, a redundant, irrelevant factoid. The speaker of the house would become the next president following the Vice President in the succession of the POTUS. You know, like what almost happened when Agnew resigned? And yet if you open your browser and type in the words “ has the speaker of the house “; right away what pops up, is “become president”. Marco!…..Polo! That’s not because google is giving you civics hints guys. Google uses an impressive, but narrow approach to ranking sentence completion phrases. You can read all about it in googles rules for search engine optimization. Yawn. Anyway, for the slower of foot, my point is, a lot of people have been asking that question a lot lately.
Ok, let’s start from scratch; what facts do we have? Quick answer, who knows? Let’s just say that if there is a pot load of horse hockey laying around, that usually means there’s a pony in the near vicinity, but, nobody’s seen THIS pony yet. Well, ok, nobody has produced good quality video of a pony yet. What we see in the blurry image of innumerable alternate realities could be…well, Bigfoot, crashing clumsily through dense forest. So, to be clear, I do not intend to go with multiple choice facts, and shall instead, fill in the equation with variables of logic, logic being true, and unalterable I should think the foundation for discussing a Paul Ryan Presidency should be argued from a solid foundation.
Alright let’s map the equation interactively, shall we? Before we can determine the worth of spending effort to consider a Ryan Presidency, we must ask why? Has the president become unviable? What conditions exist that make it necessary to replace him? Surely not scandal! Why he doesn’t own a string of hotels named Scandals I’ll never know. So, no, you could sooner shame two dogs locked in coitus apart than embarrass that man for doing whatever he finds it necessary to do. The end to his tale will be whichever end justifies the means.
Huh! Facts can’t be made to add up to truth, simple disgrace has no effect whatever…what could it be that’s making millions of people look into the presidential succession act. How about this: North Korea starts building a missile that could land a nuke on us or our allies. President Trump tells Kim Jong WHOMEVER to cease building the missile, or else. Would that be the same “or else” that he gave congress should they be unwilling to pass the horrific health system proposal, ( the one ending the bans on lifetime caps for health care use circa Germany 1947. Saved the Reich a ton.) I heard maybe direct negotiation with insurance companies to end payment for unnecessary provisions, like hospital care, mammograms, and, of course, mental illness, which neatly lops off the expense of taking care of the ever increasing number of Alzheimer’s patients from the people with the most to lose well, of course I mean money!
Ok, so maybe lots of people, not you of course, are thinking that, best case scenario, the president needs a little time to get his bearings. Or, worst case scenario, we hired a plumber to defend us in a murder trial because he wasn’t part of the corrupt, inept criminal justice system maybe?
I’m reminded of the Reagan campaign I was a big part of in my county. I became precinct chairman that year. After that election my wife and I drank too much champagne, and wound up canoodling most of the night. We were flushed with youth, and we were victorious. A few months later, in the midst of the airline traffic controllers union battle, I heard my hero, my president say, “I’m going to put the working man in his place”. I turned to my wife and said, that’s me he’s talking about. Sure enough the whole time that likeable guy was president, he undermined my pathway to the American dream. I guess you could say he did me a favor, you know, what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger. Of course Polio didn’t kill me either, but I didn’t get it on purpose. I’m….careful now in what I put my hope, but I’m not cynical. Still, hope for the best and plan for the worst still seems solid advice to me. So, Paul Ryan? Someone with experience and leadership ability? From a liberal, no less. Of course, to get to The Paul Ryan Presidency we must first examine the Vice President. So, shall we do that together next week?

Tonight, Friday, March 24th from 7 to 9pm EST on American Political Radio, RIGHT SIDE PATRIOTS Craig Andresen and Diane Sori present a Special Report on the Terror attack in London with special guest Jordanian Coalition of Opposition Secretary General Mudar Zahran, Also covered will be a recap of the Judge Gorsuch hearings.
Hope you can tune tune: http://bit.ly/2cpXuRd
This week, the United States Senate Judiciary Committee conducted confirmation hearings for Neil Gorsuch, the 49-year-old 10th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals judge nominated by President Donald J. Trump to fill the vacant seat on the bench of the U.S. Supreme Court. Gorsuch, if confirmed, will fill the seat left by the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away last year.
Despite positive support from both sides of the political spectrum for Gorsuch — who weathered his three-day hearing with poise — Senate Democrats are still threatening to filibuster his confirmation. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) made it clear on Thursday morning that Gorsuch would have to earn the required sixty votes needed to trigger cloture and end a Democrat filibuster. The senior U.S. Senator from New York tweeted:
Judge Gorsuch's nomination will face a cloture vote & as I’ve said, he will have to earn sixty votes for confirmation. My vote will be “No.”
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) March 23, 2017
Senate Republicans could, however, employ a number of various procedural options that would allow them to thwart the efforts of their colleagues across the aisle mounting this filibuster. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), along with the Heritage Foundation, has suggested using the two speech rule (Senate Rule XIX). Others have called for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to invoke the nuclear option, as provided for in Senate Rule XXII.
This option, predicated on the precedent set by McConnell’s predecessor, Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) in 2013, would allow cloture to proceed upon the affirmative of a simple majority (51 votes), as opposed to a supermajority (three-fifths, or 60 votes). If Senator McConnell moves forward with the nuclear option, then Gorsuch would certainly be confirmed by the 52-seat Republican majority in the U.S. Senate.
Senate Minority Whip Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) noted of McConnell: “It does sound like he’s laying the groundwork for the nuclear option.” Durbin is among many Democratic senators who are gearing up for the likelihood that McConnell will indeed use the nuclear option if Senate Democrats solidify their voting block and kill cloture.
Yet, if the nuclear option is indeed invoked, it would guarantee an even easier path to the Supreme Court bench for the next nominee — who is likely to be selected by President Trump, should Anthony Kennedy or Ruth Bader Ginsburg retire.
Sources reported to Fox News on Thursday that Democrats were evaluating their options. Among those options could be an attempt to strike a deal with McConnell by offering Senate Republicans a vow to withhold obstruction of Gorsuch’s confirmation in exchange for McConnell’s hesitation on invoking the nuclear option.
This may in fact be the most likely scenario to play out. Aware of these consequences, Schumer’s early and staunch opposition to Gorsuch is likely a posturing maneuver to establish a position from which he plans to bargain with McConnell. McConnell has said that the Senate “[will] confirm [Gorsuch] before [leaving] for the April recess.” With that attitude, and McConnell’s history of cutting backroom deals, the nation could actually see a surprisingly smooth floor vote to confirm Neil Gorsuch as a United States Supreme Court Justice.

White House fence-jumper Jonathan Tran was able to scale over into the presidential residency’s front yard because Secret Service removed alarm sensors along a portion of fencing.
On Mar. 10, Tran climbed over a fence between the Treasury Department and the east area of the White House complex. He also wandered around the property for over fifteen minutes.
The Washington Examiner claims an unnamed source told them the area of fencing was void of high sensitivity alarm sensors. Initially, a trip was detected, but officials were unsure if it was possibly from a squirrel or a bird.
Ironically, the sensors were removed because the Secret Service agency had raised the height of the fence to prevent fence-jumpers. This clearly did not deter Tran, who was able to bypass the inactive sensors without alerting security.
The Secret Service Presidential Protective Division is in charge of overseeing residence security.

Well well…so it seems that our dear Democratic ‘friend’ Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has been very quick with his tongue and his pen of late…so quick to spew out threat after threat on the Senate floor as to how the Republicans will be the cause of Democrats being forced to shut down the government if they insist on building a wall along our still unsecured southern border; if they dare to start mass deportations of illegals (their prime voting block); or if they try to defund (abortion mill and baby-parts seller) Planned Parenthood.
In fact those very threats…threats of “severe consequences” made by hypocrites and sore losers who not only destroyed their own party but who have fought long and hard against all Republican attempts to shut down the government over budget disputes… saw Schumer and other top Democrat senators write a letter composed of what they called “red lines” to Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and to Appropriations Committee Chairman Thad Cochran. Saying, “If Republicans insist on inserting poison pill riders such as defunding Planned Parenthood, building a border wall or starting a deportation force, they will be shutting down the government and delivering a severe blow to our economy,” this letter is nothing but an attempt to try to get Republicans to back down…to get President Trump to back down…on promises made to ‘We the People.’
Hopefully, that backing down will not happen even with the likes of RINO Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and a few others, always on the ready to throw a wrench into the Trump and/or Republican mix.
And Schumer also was quick to remind them both in said letter that just last year the Republicans agreed to the Democrats’ request that any government funding measure would move ahead without any of what he called “controversial policy add-ons”…like what they now claim Trump’s “$25 million per mile” border wall is…after Trump suggested the possibility of attaching money for it to the must-pass continuing resolution to fund the government…or even as per the rumor mill that Trump is looking to cut funds from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the U.S. Coast Guard in order to fund the wall.
Saying that cutting money from those agencies to pay for the wall is a “pointless burden” and would make Americans less safe, Schumer went on to say in the letter that any cuts of that sort would never happen if he had any say in it.
Sounds like more threats to me…as it should to you as well.
Now as for Chuck Schumer’s threats to shut down the government if mass deportation of illegals begins in earnest…lost on Schumer and his cohorts is the fact that if you come or are already here illegally then you are by definition a criminal for you came to this country knowingly breaking our immigration laws. And nowhere in the Constitution does it say we must harbor or protect criminals of any kind.
So by the government allowing known criminals to remain here, the government itself is actually in violation of the Constitution for the Constitution does not delegate to the federal government power over immigration, only over naturalization once someone is here legally…meaning naturalization happens only after going through the required legal processes which illegals obviously have not. Wonder what Schumer would say to that…what excuse he would have for Democrats now taking part in a law-breaking activity as they are the primary one’s fighting tooth-and-nail to stop said deportations. I’m sure he would find some excuse to make right what he well knows is wrong as his party can ill afford to lose one of their prime voting blocks.
And whether illegals be granted some sort of citizenship or even voting rights…or if they continue as they do now…voting albeit illegally…Schumer knows well they do so predominately for Democrats… Democrats who when illegals put their hand out fills it up with whatever they deem they need in exchange for their vote. A vicious cycle indeed but one Schumer dare not allow to be broken.
Lastly, as to Planned Parenthood and Schumer’s threats surrounding it as a reason why they would shut the government down…we know the Republicans (rightfully) want to strip hundreds of millions of dollars of Medicaid reimbursements and eliminate tax credits from any and all insurance providers who cover abortions and that includes from Planned Parenthood. But our Democratic ‘friend’ needs to understand the true facts about Planned Parenthood and the lies surrounding it. First, Planned Parenthood, contrary to the liberal hype, in no way has millions of women relying on them for their health care needs…period. Planned Parenthood serves only a small percentage of women’s health care needs as they perform less than 2% of all women’s cancer screenings; as they perform less than 1% of all pap exams; and as they perform less than 2% of all breast exams in the entire country, and that particular one is because Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms and never has.
And second, what Planned Parenthood does best…or should I say worst…is perform abortions…not abortions as in the case of rape, incest, or the life of the mother, which the Republicans have rightfully left in their new health care draft…but abortions as population control or abortions on demand for a woman’s selfish reason alone and even late-term abortions…you know where the baby could very easily survive outside the womb… murder in other words…abortions to the tune of 160 performed for every one child referred out for adoption.
And this is one of the things uber liberal Chuck Schumer and his cohorts want to shut the government down for…what amounts to the killing of babies…and no words I say can ever describe the vileness of this…no words at all.
But no matter the reasoning or the threats issued on the Senate floor, in the letter, or in media interviews, what is fact is that the Democrats shutting down the government over the upcoming $1 trillion spending package is not an impossibility. And why…because Chuck Schumer knows well that the spending measure needs 60 votes to pass and that doing so requires Democratic support. And he also knows Republicans only have a 52 to 46 majority in the Senate (there are two Independents) and therefore would need eight Democrats to cross party lines and vote with them in order to get the measure passed, and thus end any surely-would-come Democrat filibuster of it.
And honestly, I do not see that happening…crossing party lines I mean…but the fact remains that even if the Democrats do force a government shutdown on April 29th…as the government is only funded through the 28th…life here in these United States would not come to an crashing end.
And how do we know that…simply remember back to October 1, 2013, the first day of the 2014 fiscal year, when a ‘funding gap’ happened after disagreements over ObamaCare…as in trying to stop its implementation…thus causing the government to shut down for the first time in over 17 years. That shutdown lasted 16 days, and resulted in the temporary ‘furlough’ of what the Democrats insisted was hundreds of thousands of mostly Democratic federal employees… overpaid and seriously not needed federal employees…federal employees whose very numbers are now being rightfully trimmed by President Trump.
But in the case of the Democrats and their ever so in-your-face obvious vendetta against Trump because he is president and Hillary is not, if they do dare to shut the government down it not only makes them look even worse than they already do, it actually would throw the political ball into Trump’s court as he could now come back and say that he and the Republicans were just keeping promises made to ‘We the People’ and that it is the Democrats who are trying to stop the will of the people…the very people who overwhelmingly voted for him and who have in turn turned their collective backs on the Democrat’s agenda of socialism, inclusion, and freebies for all who have their hands out…an agenda based solely upon an exchange for votes that is.
And what has been Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s response to all this highly overinflated Democrat bravado and chest beating…McConnell said he was “amused by the Democrats apparently warming up to the idea that threatening to shut down the government is a good idea,” knowing full well that the Republicans win either way as shutting the government down would rightfully hurt the Democrats big time in the upcoming midterm elections…as we know it well should.
So to Chuck Schumer I say ‘bring it on’ for whether the government is shut down or whether the funding measure passes as written, President Trump, the Republicans, and ‘We the People’ win and you and your fellow Democrats lose. But know that we have plenty of bubbles, crayons, coloring books, and therapy puppies at the ready to go into service when you and your minions run to your safe spaces to whine and cry…just saying and saying it with a happy wink and a nod.

Former conservative favorite Sharron Angle announced Tuesday she was running for Congress. Her latest political bid comes as tea party movement leaders say they are gearing up across the nation to fight mainstream Republicans in Congress and make sure President Donald Trump sees things their way.
“Trump proved that America wants Constitutional, free-market conservatism,” Angle said. “The reality is the president can lead, but he cannot do it alone. In Congress, we contend with the unpredictable Republicans who support, or do not support, what the American people mandated on Election Day.”
Angle was embraced by the tea party in 2010 during her unsuccessful bid to unseat then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada. After losing to Reid, she ran for the Senate again in 2016, but lost the Republican primary to U.S. Rep. Joe Heck by 50,000 votes. Trump also lost Nevada, but by a smaller margin of about 27,000 votes.
This time around, Angle is looking to unseat U.S. Rep. Mark Amodei, a Republican who served as Trump’s Nevada state campaign chairman. It’s unclear if he is running for re-election, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported Tuesday.
The tea party movement shook up national politics in 2009, forcing many Republicans in Congress to the right out of fear they would lose their seats to grassroots candidates such as Angle, who championed gun rights, mass deportations for undocumented immigrants and Christian values. At the time, 75 percent of tea party supporters were 45 or older, a New York Times/CBS News poll found. Roughly 89 percent were white and only 23 percent graduated from college. By the time tea party voters helped Republicans win back the House in 2010, about 32 percent of the country backed the movement’s ideas. That support dropped to 17 percent by 2015 as the tea party took a backseat in Washington.
“The tea party is less a new, independent movement than a reinvigoration, another manifestation, of the conservative movement. And it is something that we’ve seen strengthened in response to government overreach,” a report from the conservativeHeritage Foundation concluded last year.
But with Trump’s surprise White House win in November, some tea party leaders are hoping to mount a comeback for their small-government platform. Tea party activists holding a rally against the Affordable Care Act last week on Capitol Hill were joined by Republican Sens. Rob Portman of Ohio and Rand Paul of Kentucky, among others.
“The battle is just beginning,” said Paul, who won office during the 2010 tea party wave. “They have to remember it was the tea party that put them in power,” he added of lawmakers looking to replace the health care law.
The leader of the Tea Party Patriots worked this week to support Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, as a Senate hearing probed his qualifications.
“Our Tea Party Patriots are making phone calls and sending emails and letters to their senators from across the country,” Jenny Beth Martin, author of the 2012 book “Tea Party Patriots: The Second American Revolution,” told Breitbart News.
