Americans rally with enthusiastic support for Trump

Americans across the country are rallying in nearly 60 U.S. cities this week in support of President Trump and his efforts to “Make America Great Again.”
Some cities held rallies Monday, the eighth anniversary of the first protest of the tea-party movement in 2009. A larger round of at least 53 rallies is scheduled for Saturday, March 4. (A list of rallies, locations and times is included at the end of this report.)
According to Main Street Patriots, the rallies are intended to “reinforce and support the current policies being put in place that will help Make America Great Again!”
On Saturday, President Trump called for Americans to show their support by holding rallies. He tweeted: “Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally. It would be the biggest of them all!” Read more here: http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/americans-rally-with-enthusiastic-support-for-trump/

A ‘special prosecutor’ for New York Times ‘B.S.’?

WASHINGTON – Sean Spicer didn’t directly accuse the New York Times of running a fake news story about contacts between members of the Trump campaign and Russian officials before the election.
But the White House press secretary made it clear that’s exactly what he was doing.
In fact, Spicer said the FBI had called the story “B.S.”
So, when he was grilled by a network news reporter as to whether a special prosecutor should investigate, an incredulous Spicer shot back with, “I guess my question would be, ‘A special prosecutor for what?'”
ABC’s Jonathan Karl pressed on, “To look into the whole Russian connection.”
But Spicer was having none of it. Read more here: http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/a-special-prosecutor-for-new-york-times-b-s/

Top Democrat drops ‘I-word’ to take out Trump

Once again, Democrats are exposing their radical roots – this time, via remarks from their top House dog’s mouth, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who used a National Press Club podium to sling about the “impeachment” word in reference to taking down President Donald Trump.
This isn’t the first time Democrats have called for Trump’s impeachment. Within days of his ascension to the White House, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, was suggesting in not-so-subtle ways that her party was going to keep a tight watch on the president to see when he stumbles onto a legal path the left could use to impeach.
Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, who is also a professor of constitutional law at the American University School of Law, said in an interview with the Young Turks in January of Trump: “Right now it looks pretty obvious that he’s on a collision course with the Emoluments Clause. He has refused to divest himself of tens or hundreds of millions of dollars of business interests he has around the world doing business with foreign governments. … “[If] he refuses to divest himself, the moment the first conflict comes up, that’s going to look like an impeachable offense.” Read more here: http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/top-democrat-drops-i-word-to-take-out-trump/

Shariahville USA declares schools ‘safe havens’ against Trump policies

Two Muslim women walk down the streets of Hamtramck, Michigan, where the population, once dominated by the Polish, has been fully transformed.
Just a few weeks after an Atlanta-area school superintendent issued a statement warning school employees not to say anything about immigrants that might be deemed discriminatory, a Detroit-area school system has branded itself a “safe haven” for refugees and immigrants.
Hamtramck Public Schools will provide “community resources” and “access to legal services” for any families negatively impacted by President Trump’s policies, according to a statement published in a Detroit newspaper.
“All Hamtramck schools are safe havens with a commitment to help all immigrant families connect with the needed resources to avoid deportation,” Superintendent Thomas Niczay told the Detroit News.

Trump Pushes For Massive Budget, Staff Cuts At EPA | The Daily Caller

President Donald Trump will ask Congress to cut the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) budget 24 percent, or nearly $2 billion, according to sources familiar with the budget plans.

The White House sent draft budget plans to agency heads Monday, detailing billions of dollars in cuts to a wide range of federal programs. Cuts to EPA and other agencies will fund a $54 billion increase in defense spending.
A source informed of the budget plans told E&E News Trump will push for a nearly $2 billion cut to EPA’s $8.1 billion budget. A source told Politico Trump also “proposed reducing EPA’s 15,000-strong workforce to 12,000, a level not seen since the mid-1980s.”
“You’re going to have to make reductions,” Myron Ebell, director of global warming and energy policy at the libertarian Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Blog: Study: 60% of online Obamacare defenders are paid

A data analyst conducted a study of Obamacare posts on Facebook and discovered that 60% of more than 225,000 posts published by 40,000 profiles were actually posted by 100 people. Kenneth Brown also found that most of those posts were published between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM, strongly suggesting that the people who were writing up pro-Obamacare Facebook posts were getting paid for it.
Brown appeared on Sheryl Attkisson's show, Full Measure.

Leaked Audio Reveals Anti-Trump Forces Manufacturing Hostile Town Hall

Leaked audio from an anti-Trump protest group meeting reveals activists with anti-Trump group Indivisible plotting how to best manufacture a hostile environment at a town hall with Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana on Friday.
The audio, obtained by local radio station KPEL, reveals a coordinated effort to create the public impression that Cassidy’s support for Trump is unpopular with his constituents. The activists, who describe themselves as liberals in the audio, can be heard strategizing how to best turn a local town hall into a political victory.
The activists split up into an “inside team” — tasked with occupying “as many seats as we can” and an “outside team,” whose job was to “give [the media] the coverage they want” before joining the others inside.
The activists strategized how best to “dominate” the question-and-answer section of the town hall and keep anyone “sympathetic” to Cassidy from asking a question. Read more here: http://dailycaller.com/2017/02/27/leaked-audio-reveals-anti-trump-forces-manufacturing-hostile-town-hall/

Articles: Trump is Smoking out Fake Conservatives

Donald Trump is one month into his presidency. For his supporters, every day is Christmas. Cabinet picks under the Christmas tree. Executive orders in the stockings hung by the chimney with care on Nov. 8. Smiles on the faces of most Republicans. Democrats gnashing their teeth and pulling out their hair.
Are all Republicans happy? Surprisingly no. I say surprisingly because for most Republicans, the current legislative landscape is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The GOP controls the White House and both houses of Congress. As well as most state governorships and legislatures. Not to mention numerous county and local offices.
Despite pre-election predictions to the contrary, Republicans ran the table on Nov. 8. Now there is no threat of a presidential veto. Even the filibuster has been neutered thanks to Harry Reid’s myopic view of his party’s future control of the U.S. Senate.

Finally: Here's What A Leaked Draft Proposal Reveals About the GOP's Obamacare Replacement

Earlier in the month, House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters that Republicans would soon introduce tangible legislation to uproot the failing Obamacare status quo and replace it with a better system. GOP leadership released an outline in mid-February that hinted at the approach they were planning to adopt -- and now a more detailed draft proposal has leaked into the press. With all the necessary caveats in place about how the document is by no means a finalized piece of legislation, it provides the most comprehensive and specific glimpse to date at Republicans' long-awaited Obamacare alternative.

Articles: RIP, Movement Conservatism

Among his other accomplishments, Donald Trump, without ever intending to, has fractured conservatism – something that was long overdue.
The American conservative movement has come quite a distance since the middle of the last century, from a small coterie viewed with contempt by the larger culture to the front ranks of a juggernaut that set back the plans of this country’s left-wing collectivists to a degree that its founders would not have considered possible. (Recall William F. Buckley’s statement that the role of conservatism was to “stand athwart history, yelling “stop.” Incredible as it may seem, “history” did stop.) Today, in large part due to its own success, it is on its way back to coterie status.
How has this come about? Here’s a simple outline of the conservative movement as it has consisted up until now: a group of conservative intellectuals, associated either with think tanks or journals, who work out philosophical and political stances, translate them into policy proposals, followed by attempts to put them into effect by the GOP, with the support of the mass of conservatives across the country.

PETER HITCHENS: Fight for equality? No, a plot to wipe out marriage

The campaign to get rid of marriage has not gone away. Civil partnerships for heterosexuals were not thrown out by the Appeal Court last week, only put off till later. They will come.
In fact, after 20 years of New Labour government (some of it nominally Tory) we can now look back and survey the smoking ruins of marriage. It’s not that the New Labour radicals and their Tory imitators wrecked marriage on their own. It’s just that they have more or less finished it off.
The very words ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ have been erased from official forms and even from normal conversation. We all have partners now, whether we want to or not. Read more here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/~/article-4260130/index.html

Poll: Half of College Students Believe Their Student Loans Will Be Forgiven - Breitbart

LendEDU, “a private firm that connects students and their families with student loans and loan refinancing,” conducted a survey that found 49.8 percent of students believe the government would forgive their student loans after graduation, the New York Post reported.
Despite what these students believe, there are actually a limited number of instances where the government can forgive student loans.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, federal student loan borrowers can have their loans forgiven “if they enter public service jobs for a specified period of time, agree to teach in an underserved area, die or become permanently disabled, or if the school they attended shuts down while they are enrolled or within 120 days after they leave.”
“The biggest exemption is the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program, and very few students go into public service,” said Nate Matherson, a co-founder of LendEDU. He also said the actual number of those who qualify for student loan forgiveness is less than 10 percent.

MSNBC Panelist Spouts Loony Conspiracy Theories On The Internet

Louise Mensch is the co-founder of Heat Street, a conservative website ran by News Corp, a former member of the UK Parliament, and a frequent guest on MSNBC. She also propagates unfounded conspiracy theories in blog posts and tweets.
Just about all of Mensch’s theories have centered around Russian President Vladimir Putin and alleged operations by his government to undermine the American political system.
Her most recent unfounded idea that caused an uproar on the internet was that the late Andrew Breitbart was murdered by Putin. “I absolutely believe that Andrew Breitbart was murdered by Putin, just as the founder of RT was murdered by Putin,” Mensch tweeted to her nearly 150,000 followers Friday while offering no evidence. The founder of the eponymous news site died suddenly at age 43 from heart failure in March 2012.

A new culprit for climate change is found, but it’s not of this Earth « Hot Air


A new culprit for climate change is found, but it’s not of this Earth

Since the media is all aflutter over proposed changes to the EPA and various climate-based regulations, we may as well visit (or revisit) the debate on climate change. Is it the result of activities of man or simply the normal patterns of changes in the Earth’s complicated biosphere? Some claim that it’s a combination of the two. But now, a team of astrophysicists has released new data which seems to support a decades-old theory which places the blame, shall we say, a bit further away. Since a picture is worth 1000 words, here’s a hint.... Read more here: http://hotair.com/archives/2017/02/24/a-new-culprit-for-climate-change-is-found-but-its-not-of-this-earth/

Blog: Have the Chicoms finally had it with the Norks?

For the Chinese to suddenly talk publicly about the North Korea's imminent demise and the importance of enforcing UN sanctions against what had been a close ally until now suggests something fairly unfriendly going on.
It follows from several days of back and forth that could have been read more than one way, but taken together with these latest headlines, suggest an angry Beijing out to thrash its hideous little neighbor. The gloves are off.
Four days ago, China cut off North Korea's access to its markets to sell coal for the year, yanking about a billion dollars in an expected hard currency inflow to the Hermit state, according to this CNN chart. The move was in response to North Korea's Feb. 12 illegal launch of a medium-range ballistic missile.
North Korea for its part took to publicly ridiculing China, two days ago calling it a U.S. puppet, 'dancing to the U.S.' tune.' Read more here: http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/02/have_the_chicoms_had_it_with_the_norks.html

Illegal Clinton fundraiser made secret tape because he feared murder

A Chinese-American businessman at the center of a Clinton campaign finance scandal secretly filmed a tell-all video as an 'insurance policy' - because he feared being murdered.

In footage provided exclusively to DailyMail.com, Johnny Chung spills details on how he illegally funneled money from Chinese officials to Bill Clinton's 1996 re-election bid.
The Chinese-American Clinton fundraiser recorded the 'elaborate videotaped testimony' while in hiding in 2000.
He smuggled it to trusted friends and family with instructions to release it to the media in the event of his untimely death because he believed he was at risk of being assassinated.
Chung is believed to still be alive and living in China.
The video was obtained by author and historian David Wead for his new book Game of Thorns, which traces Hillary Clinton's unsuccessful 2016 campaign and the Chinese government's long-running operation to buy political influence in Washington.

UMich students demand no-whites-allowed space to plot ‘social justice’ activism - The College Fix

A student activist group at the University of Michigan is demanding campus officials provide them with “a permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.”
The demand is one of several lodged by “Students4Justice,” who this month ratcheted up campus demonstrations to pressure administrators to cave, complaining in a newly launched petition that President Mark Schlissel has snubbed their demands.
The clamor for a segregated space for students of color to organize social justice efforts comes even as the public university builds a $10 million center for black students in the center of campus. Read more here: http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/31322/

Physicists assure us that we're not living in an alternate reality where Trump is president

There's a theory going around online that CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) experiments have caused the world to shift into an alternate reality where Donald Trump has become president. 
As most people would agree, this clearly can be labeled fake news.
"CERN's research captures the imagination of lots of people, which is why CERN has been featured in a lot of science fiction books, even movies, around the world," a spokesperson for CERN told CNBC when asked about the Trump theory.
"These imaginative works, inspired by our scientific research, are works of fiction generated to capture the reader or viewer's sense of wonder and should not be confused with the actual scientific research."

So the Fourth Circuit court just basically gutted Heller - Hot Air

It looks like Neil Gorsuch is going to have his plate full when he finally takes his seat on the Supreme Court. The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has been busy uprooting the Second Amendment this week, delivering a stunning opinion which essentially overturns the Heller decision without so much as a by your leave to SCOTUS. It involves a case out of Maryland where the state’s Democrats decided to ban “assault rifles” and high-capacity magazines. Apparently the idea of precedent is not something they care to have any truck with, as Charles C.W. Cook explains at National Review.

Carr: It’s the desperate Democrats who are truly deranged

Every week the snowflakes come up with a new pipe dream to get rid of Donald Trump.
The “recount” failed. Ditto the faithless electors. The emoluments clause was too boring, not to mention absurd, to ever catch fire. Impeachment? C’mon. Neocons like Bill Kristol dream of a “deep state” military coup. Overseas, deranged columnists are fantasizing about violence.
This week, the alt-left has concocted a new one — the 25th Amendment to the Constitution.
Yeah, yeah! That’s the ticket! See, Trump’s crazy and, and — dude, that amendment says the Cabinet can, you know, like, remove him if he is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”
But like, Trump could fire the Cabinet, so, like, man, we need a new amendment so only Democrats can decide to remove an elected Republican. But dude, this is the bummer — the Republicans control most of the state Legislatures, man ….

Straight WNBA star: Lesbian culture broke my spirit

Candice Wiggins was a college star at Stanford, the third pick of the 2008 WNBA draft and a 2011 champion. And at the mountaintop of her basketball career, her sexuality marred the moment.
There is a “very, very harmful” culture running throughout the WNBA, she says, which saw her get bullied during her eight-year career because she is heterosexual.
Wiggins, who last played in the league in 2015, said she retired prematurely to leave a league that she estimated — wildly — is 98 percent lesbian, and which is played in such isolation that it weighs on the people on the court.
“It wasn’t like my dreams came true in the WNBA. It was quite the opposite,” Wiggins said in an extensive San Diego Tribune story published Monday. “… I wanted to play two more seasons of WNBA, but the experience didn’t lend itself to my mental state. It was a depressing state in the WNBA. It’s not watched. Our value is diminished. It can be quite hard. I didn’t like the culture inside the WNBA, and without revealing too much, it was toxic for me. … My spirit was being broken.” Read more here: http://nypost.com/2017/02/21/retired-wnba-star-i-was-tormented-for-not-being-gay/

Supreme Court blocks death sentence over racial bias

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court blocked the execution of a Texas murderer Wednesday because of racially discriminatory testimony presented by his own defense team.
The 6-2 ruling was the second in the court's new term to overturn a death sentence, and it could be a harbinger of things to come. The justices heard another death penalty case from Texas in November that hinges on a prisoner's intellectual disability.
Chief Justice John Roberts delivered the ruling in favor of Duane Buck, who was sentenced to death following the testimony of a defense witness in 1996 who said he would be more dangerous in the future because he is black. Buck either will be re-sentenced to life in prison or will receive a new sentencing hearing.

Veterans have a real problem with the new term used to describe election-depressed liberals | BizPac Review

Liberalism really is a mental disorder.
Mental health professionals say they’re seeing more instances of a type of depression they call “post-election stress disorder” among Democrats who are still upset over Donald Trump‘s victory.
Doctors claim this unofficial medical condition is similar to post-traumatic stress disorder, which afflicts many military veterans who have experienced the horrors of war.
Florida Congressman Brian Mast said he empathizes with angry liberals who are still upset that Hillary Clinton lost the election, but said it’s a little extreme to compare that to the post-traumatic stress syndrome that afflicts war veterans.

Brzezinski: ‘Our Job’ Is to Control ‘Exactly What People Think’

Controlling "exactly what people think" is the job of the media, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski boldly declared Wednesday morning.
While discussing President Trump's entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Bzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media.
"And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think," Brzezinski said. "And that, that is our job."
SCARBOROUGH: "Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, 'Yeah you guys are going crazy. He's doing -- what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.'"
BRZEZINSKI: "Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job." Read more here: https://news.grabien.com/story-brzezinski-our-job-control-exactly-what-people-think

CHILLING New Scandal Hits the Democrats… MEDIA IGNORES! | John Hawkins' Right Wing News

Liberals are having a field day over the Milo Yiannopoulous scandal, gleefully pointing the finger at conservatives for seeing one of the new idols. While Yiannopoulos getting raked over the coals is well-deserved, that doesn’t mean there aren’t matters that Democrats need to worry about amongst themselves, in their glass houses, instead of throwing stones at Republicans.

EXCLUSIVE: White House Fingers John McCain As Media Leak; Believes U.S. Senator Eavesdropped on Trump’s Classified Phone

This could be the beginning of the end for embattled Sen. John McCain’s life in politics. According to White House officials, McCain is believed to have somehow gained access to the content of President Donald Trump’s private, classified telephone calls with world leaders. And he isn’t keeping quiet about what was talked about either.
An analysis of McCain’s recent public statements by White House officials, coupled with information from intelligence personnel working with the Trump administration, paints a disturbing picture for McCain — or any elected U.S. politician. Officials believe the senator has inside knowledge of a number of President Trump’s telephone conversations, including at least one conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Even more alarming, officials believe McCain is secretly sharing this sensitive information with colleagues and his cabal of friendly mainstream media journalists in a dangerous clandestine campaign to damage Trump’s presidency even before it has a chance to succeed. Trump has been searching for media rats in the Beltway in recent weeks. White House aides are confident they have now outed one of the major leaks plaguing the early days of the Trump presidency. To everyone’s surprise, it is a senior senator supposedly belonging to the same side of the political aisle as the president.

In terms of embarrassing conditions, “post-election stress disorder” second only to “Pandora depress

Remember “Avatar?” James Cameron’s blue-face remake of Dances with Wolves? It was huge - really huge - back in 2009. For some reason, audiences couldn’t get enough of the preachy, poorly-scripted, special-effects epic. In fact, a certain subset of movie-goers became so wrapped up in the film that that press began writing about waves of global depression.
As the Huffington Post reported at the time, human inability to visit the planet “Pandora” was causing widespread sorrow and suicidal tendencies.
The beautiful alien planet Pandora depicted in James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ is so captivating that some audience members are becoming depressed and even suicidal when they fail to find meaning in real life after the film is over.
Sadly, environmentalist film lovers were realizing that they would never be able to enter a giant blue body and move to a garden world because, you know, all of that was fictional.

Obama’s Incompetence And Chaos Far Eclipsed That Of Team Trump

Many in the media are warning that President Donald Trump is incompetent and doesn’t know what he’s doing. His ignorance, they say, will mean the downfall of the republic. The hysteria is unwarranted and merely part of a Democratic Party campaign to oust the president and derail his agenda.
This isn’t the first president to face claims of incompetence. Sometimes they’re right and sometimes not. Such charges were made against Barack Obama, and most were warranted, coming not only from Republicans but Democrats. In November 2010, Joe Scarborough reported that several Democratic senators had told him they thought Obama was out of his league.
“Democrats in Washington have been horrified by this president’s handling of things for a year and a half now,” Scarborough said. “The top Democrats in the United States Senate have all told me individually, ‘This guy has no idea what he’s doing.’” Read more here: http://thefederalist.com/2017/02/20/obamas-incompetence-chaos-far-eclipsed-whats-coming-team-trump/

Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster Named Trump’s Top Security Adviser

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla./WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday named Lieutenant General Herbert Raymond McMaster as his new national security adviser, choosing a military officer known for speaking his mind and challenging his superiors.
McMaster is a highly regarded military tactician and strategic thinker, but his selection surprised some observers who wondered how the officer, whose Army career stalled at times for his questioning of authority, would deal with a White House that has not welcomed criticism.
"He is highly respected by everybody in the military and we're very honored to have him," Trump told reporters in West Palm Beach where he spent the weekend. "He's a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience."
One subject on which Trump and McMaster could soon differ is Russia. McMaster shares the consensus view among the U.S. national security establishment that Russia is a threat and an antagonist to the United States, while the man whom McMaster is replacing, retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, appeared to view it more as a potential geopolitical partner.
Trump in the past has expressed a willingness to engage with Russia more than his predecessor, Barack Obama. Read more here: http://freebeacon.com/national-security/mcmaster-trump-top-security-adviser/

Blog: Why American campuses have fallen to the angry snowflakes

Donald Trump's victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election has set off a wave of hysteria across American college campuses. From 'The West Wing' levels of righteous indignation before Election Day, the Zeitgeist settings at many institutions of higher learning have since been ratcheted up to DEFCON 1 nightmare scenario.
Dear reader, just take a look at what's passing for higher education today: the banning of 'controversial' speakers, a failed attempt to ban hummus (chickpea paste) from campus dining halls, the creeping trend of 'bias response teams' that are thinly veiled thought police thugs, filing of a legal brief by nearly 20 U.S. universities against President Trump's executive order suspending travel to the United States by citizens of seven mostly Muslim countries.
And, to quote Al Jolson in 'The Jazz Singer,' "you ain't heard nothin' yet." Read more here: http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/02/why_american_campuses_have_fallen_to_the_angry_snowflakes.html

Trump Will Issue Executive Orders To Dismantle Obama’s ‘Climate Action Plan’

President Donald Trump will order the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to begin dismantling a regulation central to former President Barack Obama’s plan to fight global warming.
A source briefed on the matter told The Washington Post one of the orders “will instruct the Environmental Protection Agency to begin rewriting the 2015 regulation that limits greenhouse-gas emissions from existing electric utilities” and order “the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to lift a moratorium on federal coal leasing.”
Trump will issue a second order instructing the EPA and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to rewrite the “Waters of the U.S.” (WOTUS) rule that expanded federal control over rivers, streams and wetlands — even those on private property.

"I Will Not Cover Myself Up": Le Pen Refuses To Wear Headscarf, Cancels Meeting With Lebanese Cleric | Zero Hedge


French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, and leader of the National Front, canceled a Tuesday meeting with Lebanon's grand mufti, its top cleric for Sunni Muslims, after refusing to wear a headscarf for the encounter. After meeting Christian President Michel Aoun, her first public handshake with a head of state, and Sunni Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri on Monday, she had been scheduled to meet the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian. He heads the Dar al-Fatwa, the top religious authority for Sunni Muslims in the multireligious country.
Officials at the Dar al-Fatwa said Le Pen had been told in advance she’d need to put on a headscarf before meeting the Grand Mufti. Reminded again on arriving at his Beirut headquarters, she refused and left. “Dar al-Fatwa regrets this inappropriate behavior,” the council said in a statement
"I met the grand mufti of Al-Azhar," she told reporters, referring to a visit in 2015 to Cairo's 1,000-year-old center of Islamic learning. "The highest Sunni authority didn't have this requirement, but it doesn't matter. You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up," she said.

How John Quincy Adams felt about Muslims

John Quincy Adams
On Feb. 21, 1848, “Old Man Eloquent” John Quincy Adams suffered a stroke at his desk in the House chamber. He had just given an impassioned speech against the Democrat plan to expand slavery into the Western territories acquired after the Mexican-American War. He died 2 days later without regaining consciousness. A bronze marker on the U.S. House floor indicates where the desk of John Quincy Adams once stood.
John Quincy Adams was the only U.S president to serve in Congress after having been president, being elected a U.S Representative from Massachusetts, 1830-48. Nicknamed “The Hell-Hound of Slavery” for relentlessly speaking out against slavery, John Quincy Adams single-handedly led the fight to lift the gag rule which prohibited discussion of slavery on the House floor.
In 1841, John Qunicy Adams defended 53 Africans accused of mutiny aboard the slave ship Amistad. He won their case before the Supreme Court, giving them back their freedom. Read more here: http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/how-john-quincy-adams-felt-about-muslims/

Drudge Put It Perfectly: Congressional Republicans Flail and Fail

On February 8, 2017, Matt Drudge tweeted, “No Obamacare repeal, tax cuts!” and “Republican party should be sued for fraud. NO discussion of tax cuts now.” Drudge was spot on.
This week, Sen. Rand Paul (my former boss, it should be pointed out) stormed out of a meeting with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan when he heard talk of keeping Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion intact and creating tax credits. Paul worried these tax credits would be a Republican-created entitlement program.
Unfortunately, the leadership and establishment in the Republican party is incompetent. When you compare the accomplishments of President Barack Obama at the same point in his presidency as President Donald Trump, it shows that Republicans are not doing their job.

Rinkeby, Sweden On Fire! Muslim Immigrants Riot and Set Fires! Beautiful And Ravaged Sweden – ENEMY INSIDE THE GATES! – InvestmentWatch

It seems that Muslim immigrants are slowly taking over Sweden. We know that a 60 MINUTES crew had been attacked in an attempt to cover Sweden’s progress in dealing with the growing population of Muslim immigrants. Liz Hayes and the 60 Minutes crew were attacked while filming a report. . After accepting almost 165,000 refugees in 2015, Sweden is described as “starting to buckle” from the strain on its infrastructure. Now, the report that was being filmed, complete with gripping footage of Hayes and members of the 60 Minutes crew being attacked and targeted with projectiles in Rinkeby Sweden, known as little Mogadishu, as reported by the BBC, is available for viewing on YouTube.
The 60 Minutes piece, entitled “Breaking Point,” begins with Hayes riding along in a boat that rescues a group of refugees, including a baby and children, in the Mediterranean, who were headed for Greece. More than 4,000 people have lost their lives attempting to cross the Mediterranean during the current refugee crisis. “I’ve just returned from Sweden, where something happened that I never would have imagined in such a wonderful country,” Liz Hayes states. “My crew and I were attacked. We had things thrown at us. We were punched and kicked, and my cameraman was run over. Unfortunately, Sweden has become a victim of its own humanity.” Read more here: http://investmentwatchblog.com/rinkeby-sweden-on-fire-muslim-immigrants-riot-and-set-fires-beautiful-and-ravaged-sweden-enemy-inside-the-gates/

Donald Trump Is Driving the Media Nuts

Donald Trump’s term in office is only four-weeks old but he’s got the liberal media and Hollywood elites losing their collective minds. It’s hard to keep track of all the nasty accusations they’ve made.
On Trump’s temporary travel limits, they’ve charged he’s echoed “Nazi” language in his effort to “turn off that lamp on the Statue of Liberty,” that has resulted in a reaction that, as Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman concluded, “Osama Bin Laden, himself, would have prayed for.”
Chuck Todd and Dan Rather have claimed he’s currently mired in a scandal on the levels of Iran-Contra and Watergate.
The media have also questioned Trump’s mental stability. FNC’s Shephard Smith ranted “It’s crazy what we’re watching every day,” MSNBC contributor Christopher Dickey warned his viewers “people in European governments think that Trump has lost his mind,” former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann charged “I don’t believe him sane, flatly,” and The View co-host Joy Behar asked Dr. Phil “Do you think that’s a mental illness, narcissism, and if so is he fit to be president?” Read more here: http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/geoffrey-dickens/2017/02/20/donald-trump-driving-media-nuts

Trump's Prediction

During Thursday’s White House press conference, President Trump berated the media for its dishonesty and hateful tone. He spoke for nearly 80 minutes and covered a wide range of topics. He also predicted that the media would grossly distort the press conference.
The president said, “Tomorrow they will say ‘Donald Trump rants and raves.’ I’m not ranting and raving.”
Well, guess what? He was right! And the reaction was immediate.
Shepard Smith of Fox News said, “It is crazy what we are watching every day, it is absolutely crazy.” CNN’s Jake Tapper called the press conference “wild” and “unhinged.” NBC’s Chuck Todd whined that Trump’s press-bashing is “un-American.”
That’s odd. I don’t remember this kind of media outrage when Obama repeatedly attacked Fox News or bugged reporters’ phones. Read more here: https://patriotpost.us/opinion/47545

ICE: 949,382 illegals with 'removal orders' still free, raids get just .07%

Despite media reports of a massive crackdown by President Trump on illegal immigrants, just a tiny percentage of the nearly 1 million on the government's deportation list have been arrested, according to statistics provided to Congress.
The 680 seized in recent sweeps by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement agents represent just .07 percent of the 950,062 with deportation orders as of May 21, 2016.
Responses to questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee, provided by Thomas D. Homan, currently the acting ICE director, revealed the struggle the agency faces as it moves to deport illegals, many with criminal records and slapped with "final orders of removal" after exhausting their court appeals.
He said that ICE has custody of just 11,006, or 1 percent, of the 950,062 ordered deported. Read more here:  http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/ice-949382-illegals-with-removal-orders-still-free-raids-get-just-.07/article/2615298

Psychiatrists debate on whether or not Donald Trump is mentally ill

On Tuesday, American psychiatrists, psychologist, and mental health experts signed a letter warning about Trump’s mental health. They believe that Trumps’ emotional instability is reflected in his speeches and actions, and therefore he is not capable of serving safely as a president.
A lot of people have questioned President Trump’ mental health. The concern has even gotten to the Congress, where representatives have considered proposing legislation that would require a psychiatrist in the White House. As well, NGOs, such as Change.org, have started petitions to remove Trump from the office given his mental condition.
