Trump won't fill hundreds of administration jobs

President Trump doesn't plan to fill many of the hundreds of appointed political jobs in his administration because he thinks they're unnecessary.
In an interview with Fox News, Trump said he's been hit for not filling about 1,200 administration jobs that require Senate confirmation, but people don't understand that he's not trying to fill many of those jobs.
"A lot of those jobs, I don't want to appoint someone because they're unnecessary to have," Trump said. "In government, we have too many people."
Trump offered that up as an example of why he gave himself a C for messaging during his first month in office. He said his communication strategy could be clearer and he's going to try and change that around with his speech to Congress Tuesday night.
That communication strategy often involves Trump bringing his message directly to the people through his Twitter account. Trump admitted he doesn't often think about some sort of grand plan when he's tweeting, instead shooting off thoughts on whatever's on his mind.
He used his criticism of Arizona Sen. John McCain as an example.
"[There's] no method really, it's not venting either," Trump said. "But, I felt badly when a young man dies and John McCain calls it a failed mission."
"I thought it was inappropriate and I thought it was inappropriate that he goes to foreign soil and criticizes our government," he said. "People have to be careful about that."


Trump Executive Order Could Lead to $0 in Net Regulatory Cost This Year

President Donald Trump's executive order to eliminate two regulations for every new rule could result in zero net regulatory costs this fiscal year, a stunning shift in regulatory policy from the previous Obama administration.
The American Action Forum released a report Tuesday showing how Executive Order 13771 could significantly roll back regulatory burdens, using 2006 as a model.
The "Getting to $0" report written by Sam Batkins, director of regulatory policy at the American Action Forum, finds that through the executive orders on regulation and the Congressional Review Act, the administration could reduce net regulatory costs to zero by Oct. 1.
By contrast, the last year of the Obama presidency yielded $164 billion in costs from final regulations alone.
"With the landmark signature of Executive Order (EO) 13,771, the Trump administration has made a bold move to limit regulatory costs," Batkins writes. "But is the EO's goal of achieving $0 in regulatory costs for the remainder of the fiscal year (through October 1) possible?"
"According to American Action Forum (AAF) research, the administration need only be as restrained as the Bush Administration was in 2006 to accomplish the goal of no net costs," the report states. "With the regulatory freeze still mostly in effect, the days of $164 billion in regulatory costs could come quickly to an end."
The report notes there "have been virtually no new regulatory burdens" since the executive order was signed on Jan. 30. Trump signed another executive order on Friday that lays out how to enforce regulatory reform. The order creates a task force that will evaluate existing regulations to find ways to repeal, replace, or modify regulations that inhibit job creation, are ineffective, and impose more costs than benefits.


Soros-Financed Groups Provided Script for Anti-Trump Town Halls

The script provides word-for-word language suggestions that accuse the Trump administration of “xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia.”  It asks activists to use the descriptors to petition their representatives to “forcefully condemn” and support legislation opposing President Trump’s immigration and border security agendas.
The script is entitled, “#NoBanNoWallNoRaids Talking Points for Congressional Townhalls.”
It ends with contact information for activists from two groups heavily financed by billionaire George Soros – Avideh Moussavian at the National Immigration Law Center and Deepa Iyer at the Center for Social Inclusion.
Contacted by Breitbart News, Moussavian confirmed his group “contributed” to the script “in response to overwhelming concern and fear stemming from the January 27th executive order that sought to ban the entry of refugees and Muslims and in response to mounting questions from community members about how to express these concerns to policy makers.”
Despite Moussavian’s claims, Trump’s executive order did not seek to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. It temporarily halted the refugee program while the flawed security screening process could be reworked.
The anti-Trump script for activists is meant to aid a project driven by the George Soros-funded MoveOn.org group declaring the week of February 18-26  – the first congressional recess of the 115th Congress – to be “Resistance Recess.”


Cost of UN Climate Pact: $100 TRILLION

President Trump has pledged to cancel U.S. participation in the United Nations climate agreement signed last year by President Obama in Paris. However, various media sources are reporting that the president has backed off of this campaign commitment due to lobbying from daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, who reportedly support the UN Paris Agreement. Also in the global-warming alarmist camp, apparently, is Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
There are many compelling arguments for President Trump to make good on this signature campaign promise, notwithstanding the dissidents within his family and his cabinet. Cost alone provides sufficient reason to deep-six the agreement, without even going into the incredible liberty-destroying regulatory shackles it proposes for the entire planet. The price tag associated with the global carbon-regulating regime envisioned in the document is nothing short of mind-boggling. How much would it cost? According to Danish environmentalist/statistician Bjørn Lomborg, the cumulative price tag for the UN Paris Climate Agreement, by the end of the century, would be an astronomical $100 trillion!
“Much has been made of the Paris Climate Agreement signed by the leaders of 178 countries in 2016,” states Dr. Lomborg, president of the Copenhagen Consensus Center in Denmark in a recent video for the Prager University website (see below). When Gina McCarthy, President Obama’s head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, testified before the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, noted Lomborg, she said the Paris Agreement was an “incredible achievement.”
“But,” says Lomborg, “when pressed by committee members to explain exactly how much this treaty would reduce global temperatures, she would not — or could not — say. This combination of grand pronouncements and vague specifics is a good strategy for Paris Agreement fans to take. Because the agreement will cost a fortune, but do little to reduce global warming."


How greedy Bill and Hillary Clinton befriended a Chinese fry cook in Little Rock who funneled hundreds of thousands in illegal donations from China

Once the shock of Hillary Clinton election loss passed, the blame game began.
But FBI Director Comey's decision to reopen the investigation into Hillary's emails the Wikileaks revelations and campaign strategy missteps were hardly the only reasons to blame for Hillary's devastating loss. Nor was the inability of the Democratic candidate to  connect to voters.
According to presidential historian and New York Times bestselling author Doug Wead, Hillary's scathing defeat was unsurprising and a direct result of the scandals, lies and cover-ups that have followed her and her husband for decades.
'The idea that the Clintons' scandals would somehow be dismissed by history upon the election of Hillary as president was always a fool's wish', Wead writes in his compelling new book, Game of Thorns: The Inside Story of Hillary Clinton's Failed Campaign and Donald Trump's Winning Strategy

Can You Guess Which Country Has the World's Largest Oil Reserves? (Hint: It's Not Saudi Arabia)

For decades, the oil market has been dominated by Saudi Arabia, because it not only produced the most oil on a daily basis but also controlled the most oil underground. Those oil resources, known as reserves, gave the country leverage because it could ramp its output up or down to respond to market conditions. It often used that advantage to keep oil prices at a level of its choosing by putting pressure on other members of OPEC to follow its lead.
That said, there's a new kid it town that, thanks to advances in drilling technology, now has more reserves than the Saudis. That surprising newcomer is none other than the United States of America, which, according to one estimate, has the world's largest oil reserves.

Drilling down into the numbers

According to a report by energy consultancy Rystad Energy, the U.S. holds 264 billion barrels of oil reserves, which includes oil from existing fields as well as a projection of oil from yet-to-be-discovered fields. Rounding out the top five are Russia (256 billion barrels), Saudi Arabia (212 billion), Canada (167 billion), and Iran (143 billion). Rystad found that the U.S. had already discovered 109 billion barrels of the reserves it used for its estimates.

Things To Think About

This is so very sad.  Former president Obama is directing a campaign to destroy Trump's presidency.  This piece explains.  Quote: Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics says, "Obama is behind the effort to derail and block the Trump administration on everything. However, Obama may be sowing the seeds of the destruction of the Democratic Party altogether. Those who think Obama is not behind this coup are blinded by their bias,” he writes. “To agree with this statement DOES NOT mean the Republicans are saints – just look at John McCain if you need reassurance. John McCain voted to tax the Internet.”  However, he says, Obama “is deliberately trying to create an uprising and is side-stepping the Democratic Party himself because they will not agree with his agenda.”  “Hedge Funds and Hollywood are assisting him so there is money and propaganda on his side. ABC is among the worst in the mainstream media, which is a total disgrace for Disney. The show the View openly states that not one person voted for Trump and all they do is bash Republicans. You are hard pressed to find a more bias[ed] show spouting out propaganda from the agenda on ABC.”    http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/analyst-warns-obama-now-undermining-democrats/
This item deals with the Democrat party actions specifically designed to destroy Trump's presidency. Quote: "As we’ve stated before, this significant policy change appears to have a direct correlation to the exponentially increased number of intel leaks the Trump Administration has been dealing with.  By greatly expanding access to classified information by unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats, the Obama Administration paved the way for a shadow government to leak that classified information, endangering our national security, in an attempt to undermine President Trump."    https://aclj.org/national-security/aclj-requests-records-from-doj-and-intelligence-agencies-on-obama-administrations-last-minute-expansion-of-access-to-intelligence-information?   This was a dastardly deed committed by Obama and Lynch before they left office.  Both are anti-American activists. 

It gets worse.  This item is more than interesting because it details disgusting Obama loyalists behavior.  Don't for one minute believe Obama himself is not involved. He is once again flexing his Saul Alinsky radical community organizer muscles. http://freebeacon.com/national-security/former-obama-officials-loyalists-waged-campaign-oust-flynn/?    Here is a good indication of Obama's direct contribution to some of Trump's recent problems.  Obama is a dirty, mean and vindictive operator. https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/02/19/obama-is-the-source-of-the-coup/   All of the people involved in this treasonous enterprise are anarchists.   This does not mean that "Honest" efforts to investigate and reveal "Real" facts about candidates/political operatives is not necessary.  But, that is NOT what these people are doing.   More.    http://freebeacon.com/uncategorized/lt-col-tony-schaffer-reveals-who-was-directly-behind-mike-flynn-phone-call-leaks/?   As others have said, these actions constitute treason.

The first paragraph provided information before Obama gained control of the Democrat party.  This weekend his lacky, former Labor Department Secretary, was voted Chairman of the Democrat National Committee.  Here is what he said in his very first speech as DNC chairman.  He declared that Trump is the worst president in US history.  That profound declaration comes after Trump has been in office just one month and one month after enduring for eight long years of arguably the worst president in US history.  http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/02/25/new-dnc-chair-calls-trump-worst-president-in-the-history-of-the-us-invokes-the-resistance/    Does anyone think that members of the Democrat party will improve their behavior any time soon?  Not likely.  This provides an example of just how degenerate the Democrat party has become.    http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/02/25/left-wing-protesters-act-deplorably-at-gop-town-hall-booing-jesus-during-opening-prayer/   Not only does Obama now have the DNC under his thumb he has his loyal 30,000 member army identified in previous paragraphs working on a coup.  That spells more chaos, mayhem, disturbances, Democrat party resistance to anything and every thing Trump, unruly thugs at Republican town halls, and an all out effort to undermine our Democratic Republic.  Obama and Democrats are a real and present danger.  

The following paragraphs provide more reasons to be worried.

The deceitfulness of Democrats is increasingly obvious.  Take a look at this piece and you will understand the charge.  Quote: "During Obama's eight years Durbin never cared when Obama reneged on the U.S deal to put missile shields in Poland and the Czech Republic. I guess Poland didn't contact Durbin then. He didn't have any problem when Obama whispered to the Russian leader in 2012 that he would have more flexibility after he was reelected. He didn't have an issue when Obama essentially laughed at Romney for saying Russia was dangerous.  And he had no problem when the Obama administration essentially approved the sale of Uranium to Russia. Of course Durbin was also a supporter of the Iran deal (where the Administration continuously lied) which gave Iran hundreds of billions of dollars of which they use a substantial amount to spread terrorism around the world and to buy weapons from Russia. Not once during Obama's term did Durbin question anything Obama did with Russia or demand a hearing but now he and Ukraine and Poland are all of a sudden concerned about Trump. What pure BS. Trump has actually not done anything at all that would demand a hearing but Obama essentially did things to increase Russia's power and to hurt Poland and Ukraine yet Durbin, the Democrats and the media didn't care."      http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/02/after_eight_years_of_neglect_durbin_suddenly_cares_about_poland_and_ukraine.html
This woman is a totally disgraceful human being.  Quote: "Protesters have been heckling Republican congressmen at town hall events in cities all over the country. There’s nothing wrong with a hearty debate, but some of these disruptions have been downright nasty, such as the appalling actions at a Louisiana town hall this week, when agitators rudely interrupted a pastor’s opening prayer. Without so much as a peep to condemn such shameful behavior, Hillary Clinton recorded a video message on Friday giving leftist protesters the thumbs up."    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2017/02/24/hillarys-new-message-for-democrats-n2290242?

This is about just one of Obama's many horrendous actions while in office.  He totally embraced and even praised the accomplishments of the brutal Communist dictator and murderer Raul Castro.  Those are the kind of people Obama and his leftist ilk appreciate.  https://townhall.com/columnists/humbertofontova/2017/02/25/the-forgotten-treachery-of-obamas-state-department-n2290230   Remember, too, the left fawned over socialist dictator Hugo Chavez who personally ruined the country of Venezuela.

These doctors do not buy into anti-science left leaning progressive demagogues who shred anything having to do with the factual biology of human sexuality.   https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/02/25/american-college-of-pediatrics-reaches-decision-transgenderism-of-children-is-child-abuse/

The political left just keeps getting loonier and loonier.  This Democrat displays his total ignorance of human anatomy.  Democrat/progressive political dictates do not facts make.   http://eaglerising.com/41198/dnc-senior-advisor-says-gender-identity-is-settled-science-video/

The radical progressive left is driving a wedge between the majority of Americans and their radical socialistic, even communistic, positions.  Their behavior is destructive of rational and civil discourse. This item addresses the resulting problems. Quote: "There was just a story from Buzzfeed this week where they got a leaked email from a major corporation saying that a lot of their clients want to blacklist Breitbart because they don’t want to be associated with the ‘hateful’ rhetoric there.”  Greer believes Americans are beginning to lose their traditional liberties as the left moves to politicize every aspect of American life.  “In some ways it’s very un-American,” he said. “It’s un-American to try to shut down a business just for expressing their viewpoints. And they try to claim, ‘Oh, they’re causing hate crimes.’  “There are no hate crimes there. There’s no violence being caused. There’s no illegality caused. They try to use all this fantasy. They don’t need any basis in fact. They just need the emotional appeal that, oh, we think this is dangerous and so we need to shut it down.”  Unfortunately, Greer said, conservatives are going to have to start responding in kind if it goes on much longer."    http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/chaos-on-campus-heralds-tribal-warfare-in-america/   

Anyone who does not think that the Democrat party is in league with communism needs to understand they are in  fact very close allies.  If after reading the preceding paragraphs and these two items do not convince you I do not know what will. http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/jeffrey-lord/2016/09/03/communist-party-usa-endorses-hillary-media-yawns   and,   https://spectator.org/chicago-honors-terrorist-after-dishonoring-trump/

The New Nationalism in America

Today the situation is reversed. Donald Trump won the Republican nomination and the presidency of the United States despite the resistance of the conservative intellectual movement and many party activists. While his administration leans heavily on institutions such as the Heritage Foundation, those aspects of his campaign that diverged most significantly from the conservatism of the Beltway remain undefined. Where Trump stands on trade, immigration, entitlements, America First, and the Iraq war is clear enough. Not so clear, however, is whether those stances add up to a coherent worldview, what that worldview is, and what it implies for political action. In the case of President Trump the voters came before the movement. Hence one explanation for the turbulent beginning of his administration is that Trump, unlike Reagan, is unable to draw from years of intellectual work and policy research.

That is beginning to change. The first issue of American Affairs, a quarterly journal of policy and political thought, was feted at a reception in New York City on Tuesday. I found the magazine lively and thought provoking and at times deeply insightful. In their mission statement the editors reject "a misguided and complacent consensus" that too easily dismisses widespread protest against social problems as populist exercises in nostalgia. "But our intellectuals as well as our politicians are subservient to an even more debilitating nostalgia," the editors say, "which views the ideologies of the last few decades as the only alternatives and their policies as the only solutions. They are nostalgic for a present they think they inhabit, but which has already slipped away." And this nostalgia led the intellectuals and politicians so far afield that they missed completely the economic crisis, the Arab Spring, Brexit, and the rise and victory of Donald Trump.


Weekly Update: Sanctuary City Outrage

A crackdown on dangerous sanctuary policies for illegal immigrants can’t come a moment too soon.  As with our most recent court challenge to San Francisco, Judicial Watch has been a leader (and often the only) legal opponent to sanctuary policies that ignore federal and state laws concerning illegal immigration at the expense of the public’s safety, the rule of law, and our national security.  Now, with a Trump administration that might actually join Judicial Watch in going after sanctuary policies, the radicals in “sanctuary cities” are doubling down.

Our Corruption Chronicles blog has the details of dangerous sanctuary craziness in Arizona:

An average of 400 “criminal illegal immigrants” are being released every 10 days by the newly elected sheriff in Arizona’s most populous county, federal law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch, many of them violent offenders.

It’s part of Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone’s new policy to protect illegal aliens, even those who have committed serious state crimes, from deportation. Under a longtime partnership between the county and the feds, the Phoenix field office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was notified when “aliens unlawfully present with additional Arizona charges” were released from the Maricopa County Jail, which is one of the nation’s largest with a population of about 8,000. That ended when Penzone, who refers to illegal immigrants as “guests,” took office this year and, though he formally announced the change last week, it was put into practice much earlier.


Progressives raise transparency concerns over paper ballots in DNC chairman vote

A progressive group charged Saturday that the Democratic National Committee’s reliance on paper ballots in the race for DNC chair raises questions of transparency, tainting the process.
The DNC had planned on using both an electronic system, as well as paper ballots, but switched gears minutes before the vote when interim Chair Donna Brazille announced they would rely on the ballots in part because of concerns over spotty internet service.
Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Committee, pointed to reports that said some DNC members are concerned over blowback they could receive from the Bernie Sanders-aligned forces that are supporting Rep. Keith Ellison if their support for former Labor Secretary Tom Perez became public.
“Paper ballots instead of visible and accountable voting is something that Debbie Wasserman Shultz would be proud of,” Mr. Green said on Twitter, alluding to the former chair, who resigned after hacked emails showed DNC members were biased against Mr. Sanders in the 2016 primary race.
The group also highlighted a DNC rule that said “secret ballots are not permitted” and the results should be shared with the candidate or their campaign in the case that the contest goes beyond the first ballot.


How Much Money Laundering is Going On in the Housing Market? A Lot

The US Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) announced on Thursday that it would extend for another 180 days a “temporary” program that was due to expire on Thursday, and that it had originally kicked off in January 2016 and expanded in July, to identify and track secret homebuyers who hide behind shell companies and “other opaque structures” for the purpose of money laundering.

And it has already gleaned some insights.

The US housing market has been a perfect platform to launder large amounts of money, no questions asked. Brokers, banks, and other industry professionals played along. There were no reporting requirements. Everyone in the world knew it. And they came to launder their cash by buying expensive homes.

But FinCEN, via its evocatively named Geographic Targeting Orders (GTO), wants to know who these opaque homebuyers are. To find out, the GTOs “temporarily require US title insurance companies to identify the natural persons behind shell companies used to pay ‘all cash’ [i.e. without bank financing] for high-end residential real estate in six major metropolitan areas.”


The Whole World Is (Not) Watching

As the Conservative Political Action Conference comes to a close and radical leftists across the country rage over the wholesale rejection of their collapsing health law and election failures, you might think the world sees the United States as a nation in chaos. The media seems determined to give that very impression. But is the world viewing us, and President Trump, that way?

It’s only anecdotal, but my experiences speaking to people from other countries made one thing clear to me: The rest of the world is not watching.

On a recent trip to Ireland to see how the rest of the world viewed our political drama, I was surprised to find the rest of the world isn’t as interested as you might think.

Yes, they are much more aware of the happenings in our country than we are in theirs. But the U.S. is almost taken for granted, certainly more than even European media would have you believe.

In Dublin, I spoke with people from France, England and Italy, as well as the Irish, about their views of our country. The notion they are repulsed by the “buffoon” we elected is simply not so, despite what the media would have you to believe. The opinion of the U.S. is not as simple as that.



Unfortunately, many of today’s militant leftists attending the town hall meetings are not interested in debating or even discussing the issues. They are angry that change is coming to the country. They want socialized medicine, big government, regulations and open borders to continue.

Since the election of Barack Obama as President in 2008, the Democrats have lost 42 U.S. house seats, 11 U.S. Senate seats, 900 state legislative seats and 10 state governorships. They have lost control of the Congress, state legislatures and now the presidency, so even though they don’t like it, they must realize that a massive transformation is coming to the country. It is time to “Make America Great Again!”

Instead of creating disturbances at town hall meetings, liberals should follow the Tea Party playbook and organize for the 2018 mid-term elections. Regrettably, they are acting like spoiled children, expressing their anger by cursing and making threatening comments and only hurting their own cause.

As liberals are exposed in all their fury, more Americans will come to realize that the voters made the right decision in electing Donald Trump as our nation’s 45th President.


Revenge of the Deep State

Liberty is rarely lost overnight. The wall of tyranny often begins with benign building blocks of safety — each one lying on top of a predecessor — eventually collectively constituting an impediment to the exercise of free choices by free people, often not even recognized until it is too late.

Here is the back story.

In the pre-Revolutionary era, British courts in London secretly issued general warrants to British government agents in America. The warrants were not based on any probable cause of crime or individual articulable suspicion; they did not name the person or thing to be seized or identify the place to be searched. They authorized agents to search where they wished and seize what they found.

The use of general warrants was so offensive to our Colonial ancestors that it whipped up more serious opposition to British rule and support for the revolutionaries than the "no taxation without representation" argument did. And when it came time for Americans to write the Constitution, they prohibited general warrants in the Fourth Amendment, the whole purpose of which was to guarantee the right to be left alone by forcing the government to focus on bad guys and prohibit it from engaging in fishing expeditions. But the fishing expeditions would come.

In 1978, Congress passed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which was intended to rein in the government spying on Americans that had been unleashed by the Nixon administration. FISA established a secret court and permitted it to issue warrants authorizing spying on agents of foreign governments when physically present in the United States.


Chicago Honors Terrorist After Dishonoring Trump

Chicago aldermen honored FALN (Armed Forces of National Liberation) terrorist Oscar Lopez-Rivera by naming a section of roadway after him. If only Leopold and Loeb, Al Capone, and John Wayne Gacy cloaked their crimes in a cause, then they, too, might now enjoy Second City street-sign salutes.

“He was a suspect of FALN bombings starting in July of 1976, when he and his friend Carlos Torres rented a room in an abandoned building,” retired FBI agent Donald Wofford tells The American Spectator. “When a source of the Chicago PD burglarized it, he found dynamite.”

Aside from turning his rental into a bomb factory, Lopez-Rivera tried to stick up an armored car, attempted to escape from prison, and, curiously, robbed a Carter-Mondale political office. Showing that no bad deed goes unrewarded, President Jimmy Carter’s Democratic successors both attempted to free the Puerto Rican terrorist before his 55-year sentence expired. Bill Clinton’s attempt in the ’90s, like Lopez’s in the ’80s, failed. The convict refused to agree to conditions, including renouncing past terrorism, that his comrades readily embraced. Seventeen years later, Barack Obama, attaching no such hassling stipulations, commuted Lopez-Rivera’s sentence before leaving office.

The FALN, which Lopez-Rivera helped found, set off more than 100 bombs in the ’70s and ’80s and killed a half dozen people. “They put down a whole series of bombs,” Wofford notes of the Chicago branch that Lopez-Rivera helped oversee. “By the grace of God, no one was killed.”


Slime and the Slimers

“There’s no Elmer’s Glue to be found anywhere on Oahu,” my eleven-year-old granddaughter announced dramatically as we got into the car at Honolulu airport last Sunday. Still groggy from the ten-hour flight across so many time zones and with my ears still stopped up, I thought I had misheard her. Asking for some explanation, I got a very rapid paced explanation. Every sixth grader on the island is making slime, a concoction composed of Elmer’s Glue, cornstarch, and some secret ingredients known only to very aware eleven-year-olds and which I’ve already forgotten. The run on glue was so substantial that as soon as word got out of the arrival of a new shipment, someone texted the location to her friends who texted it to their friends and in no time that store, too, found its shelves of glue stripped bare.

Fads like this are nothing new. What makes them spread so quickly and completely is the kids’ use of the Internet. And sure enough, within days of our arrival the Wall Street Journal described the slime phenomenon. There are even enterprising youngsters making money out of sharing instructions for making it and using Instagram to purvey already confected slime.

The situation on Oahu turned out to be less dire than first we heard. No -- a black market in the glue had not yet developed. Some apparently was still being airlifted in, it seems, for in an out-of-the-way convenience store in a neighborhood which must be devoid of eleven-year-old kids we found a squeeze bottle under a trade name “school glue”.

Adult creators of slime don’t need glue. They need credulous readers and viewers too lazy to check libelous statements, especially claims that fit their own preconceptions.

Things To Consider 3

No kidding. This Democrat says his party has moved far to the left.   http://www.themadpatriots.com/politics/democrat-our-party-has-moved-very-far-to-the-left/   They are now so far left they have entered Communist territory.

The dangers to the Republic wrought by hypocritical Democrat behavior causing public rifts between the President and Intelligence agencies.   https://townhall.com/columnists/johnkass/2017/02/17/where-have-all-the-liberal-democrats-gone-n2286891?  It is acknowledged that Trump has played a role in bringing this trouble about.  But the Democrat behavior is the primary cause and should stop and stop now.  The last paragraph is dead on.  They care more about power than the good of the country.

Sorry to say but this is the way leftist/progressives think.  It is disgusting, irrational, irresponsible and totally wrong.  They have such high regard for themselves and their irrational leftist political philosophy that they willingly and out loud declare that someone in power who disagrees with them should be assassinated.   http://www.infowars.com/german-news-show-panelist-murder-trump-to-get-him-out-of-office/   Incredibly liberals/progressives/Democrats in our country have called for the same thing.  Consider this and then tell me the mainstream media is unbiased.    http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2017/01/30/7-nations-named-trump-executive-order-security-nightmares/ 

This topic has been covered in previous items but this piece deserves a read.  The left does not understand their improper use of terms like fascist or Nazi when addressing conservatives, libertarians or many Republicans.  Quote: "Promiscuously hurling the F-word at people for no other reason than labeling them as irredeemably deplorable has two unfortunate consequences.  First, it inhibits people from comprehending an important, albeit horrible, political movement of the mid-20th century.  Let us remember Santayana’s observation that historical ignorance has serious consequences.   Second, and more important, it is deleterious to civil discourse.  You cannot have a civil conversation – which should be an essential feature of popular government – with those who make such historically and politically erroneous claims.  It’s time for the Left to take that page out of its playbook."     http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/02/its_time_to_define_fascism.html

It is a travesty that people who do things like this gain traction in conducting their irreligious antics.  They have a right to their opinion but when they are on the march against godliness everyone loses.  https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2017/02/culture-war-comes-to-a-tennessee-high-school-football-gamei

This is a warning to the wise.  The political left is on a path that could well prove to be very destructive to peace and tranquility.  Help quell the tide.    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/01/29/be-careful-what-you-wish-for-especially-if-it-is-hitler/#more-141973

Here's what Scot Baio former star on Happy Days has to say about what is so troubling to today's liberals.  He is on to something.   http://conservativetribune.com/happy-days-star-reveals-reason/?   Here is more regarding the unhinging of the political left.  https://thehornnews.com/nasty-celebs-go-nuclear-trump/

This is a disturbing trend enabled by the loose sexual morals pushed by the amorality of leftist free sex policies.    http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/sex-before-1st-date-shocking-trend-means-big-regrets/

This is the kind of behavior Obama and the political left supports.  Disgusting from a former president specifically and the political left generally.    http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/30/blm-anti-trump-protest-in-seattle-we-need-to-start-killing-people/    This too.  http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/01/video-violent-leftists-knock-trump-supporter-unconscious-portland-airport-brawl/

Disgraceful judicial activism by left wing judges.  The judicial branch of government has forged its own path to destruction of Constitutional rule and the three branches of government.  It has decided to take over control of the country using unconstitutional rulings to install a socialistic form of government.    http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/no-evidence-how-about-72-terror-convictions/   There are exceptions however.  Some judges still believe in what the constitution says.  God bless them.    http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/dissenting-judges-rip-colleagues-10-commandments-ruling/

Consider this opinion of how Trump will/can deal with the opposition building against his immigration/refugee plans.    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/01/29/the-persuasion-filter-and-immigration/

Rational thought dictates these measure as nothing short of common sense.  Quote: "Phil Haney, a former Homeland Security screening officer who developed a database to red-flag terrorist refugees only to have it erased by Obama’s DHS hierarchy, said Trump needs to “drain the swamp” of a refugee program that has become fraught with corruption.  But Haney, co-author of the whistleblower book “See Something Say Nothing,” said draining the water is just the beginning of the task facing Trump.  “Your work really begins after the water is drained. You have to see what is actually there buried in the muck and mire,” he said. “And if Trump has experts who are qualified to go in and conduct a forensic analysis, they’re going to find all kinds of nasty stuff down there and it will set in motion a whole sequence of events that will allow law enforcement and immigration officials to honestly evaluate the status of our current immigration policies and they’re going to find that there are a lot of problems with it.” http://www.wnd.com/2017/01/secret-refugee-network-freaking-out-over-trump-reforms/

We have all heard the political left and mainstream media assure us that there is no voter fraud in our elections.  That is a Republican myth, they say.  Well there is ample evidence that that assertion is more of the left's fake news.  President Trump has apparently asked for an investigation into the subject of voter fraud something many believe is fact.  The preliminary evidence seems to support the need to investigate and if fraud is in fact taking place remedies put in place to prevent or at least limit future such actions.   http://www.wnd.com/2017/01/media-already-has-verdict-theres-no-voter-fraud/

This is a portrait of a socialist who cannot see, think straight and have a warped view of reality.  That is a common affliction of those on the political left.  Quote: "On 2016’s doozy of a campaign trail, Bernie Sanders focused his attention less on societal values and virtues whether, for instance, we as a whole people act virtuously or otherwise and much more on the size and scope of government programs and regulations. But the question of whether Americans act compassionately is distinct, and one Sen. Sanders gets wrong. Americans as private moral individuals are rife with the virtue of compassion. And this is not in spite of our wealth and relative freedom, as some might suggest, but because of it."    https://fee.org/articles/bernie-is-blind-to-compassion-without-compulsion/

An interesting point of view.    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/01/30/the-great-disconfirmation/

Should the government run the public school system?  This item offers an interesting perspective on that question.  Quote: "Since schooling fails both parts of the public good definition, the free rider problem does not exist, and we do not need the government to operate schools. If government is not necessary for the operation of schools, we should not promote policies towards that end. Government’s current monopoly on schooling leads to a lower quality product, at an exorbitant cost. Instead, we should recognize the problems with the existing government monopoly on schooling and promote access to private school choice for all children, regardless of their income."    https://fee.org/articles/schooling-is-not-a-public-good/

Silly me.  I thought that members of the Democrat party and progressives were the most tolerant people on earth. At least that is what they tell us.  In addition to the massive amount of vitriolic hatred coming from this tolerant quarter since Hillary's loss, this little item explains their view of us white folks. Because of the ambiguity of the language used it is hard tot know exactly who or exactly what white group they intend to shut down but is seems to be a real important objective for them.   http://www.themadpatriots.com/politics/democrats-we-must-shut-white-people-down/   This is terrible, terrible behavior of people who have clearly lost their way as they continue to wrap themselves into knots dealing with their identity politics nonsense.  If this man gets the Democratic party's leadership role, they are committing suicide as a political party.     http://www.wnd.com/2017/01/an-enemy-within-keith-ellison-exposed/    It would be an official declaration that they support Muslimization of America.

And they claim to be the smartest people in the country and should always hold political power because only they know what is best for the rest of us.  At least one reason their thinking is seriously flawed is if they follow through with putting Representative Keith Ellison at the head of the Democratic National Committee.  Read this item to get a feel for why such an appointment would be the death knell of the party.  But then they are smarter than everyone else, aren't they?    http://wec.wnd.com/read/archive?id=485085&mid=3104841&e=georgeburns%40embarqmail%2ecom&x=6ae24fcf

Let's hope this assessment is what will in fact come to pass.  Quote: "What does all this mean? A unity among those who have been divided, prosperity for those who have lived in poverty, opportunity where there has been little, and law and order instead of chaos. Add to that the establishment of justice, a more perfect union and domestic tranquility, thanks to leadership that will build and promote our common defense, consider our general welfare and fight to secure the blessings of liberty. This will happen while we stand firmly on clear, Constitutional principles.  The transforming of the American economy and a focus on future generations and prosperity to those generations means leaving a country that is far better off than the way we found it. I believe this future is right around the corner, as long as politics do not once again take our country hostage."   http://townhall.com/columnists/dancelia/2017/01/27/the-presidents-remarkable-beginning-n2277401?   It really does depend on whether the Democrat stop their obstructionist behavior. 

Far too many leftist/Democrats/liberals are unhinged, even school teachers.  Get a load of this teacher's completely inappropriate behavior in her classroom.     http://www.wnd.com/2017/01/die-unhinged-teacher-goes-berserk-fires-toy-gun-at-trump/

Things To Consider 2

Would you consider China as a nation we should all model ourselves after?  Some on our American political leftist think so.  Quote: "It’s rather sickening to watch self-described liberals embrace China as a responsible power. The headline on the cover of this week’s Economist, which I now read solely to find out what is not the case, is “China: the global grown-up.” The Washington Post purports to explain “Why China will be able to sell itself as the last liberal great power.” These articles, besides being wrong, have the distinction of following the line set by Beijing itself: “China may lead globalization movement,” says propaganda outlet CCTV."  and,  "Reading the gushing coverage of this dictator’s turgid and clichéd speech, I can’t help but think of the last time America’s liberal elite went gaga over China. “One-party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks,” Tom Friedman wrote in 2009. “But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people, as China is today, it can also have great advantages.” Chief among those advantages, according to Friedman, is the Chinese Politburo’s ability to “just impose the politically difficult but critically important policies needed to move a society forward in the 21st century.” Spoken like a true apparatchik. Six months later, on Meet the Press, Friedman confessed his fantasy: “What if we could just be China for a day?”    http://freebeacon.com/columns/dont-fall-chinas-global-baloney/?   If you do not believe that American leftist are not in league with communist thinking you are not paying attention to their words or deeds.  I am reminded of how much the political left/progressives were in love with Stalin's Russia, Hitler's Germany and Mussolini's Italy's before the horrors of their reigns were exposed.

This is a assessment of socialism well worth reading. Quote: "For it is not the copper-riveted old-time believers in Marxian theory that we in America have to fear. Those old-timers, although calling themselves democratic, still give lip-service to the Marxian doctrine of progress through increasing class division. They do not seem to me really to believe in it any longer; in the present state of class relations in this country such a belief would require feats of mental gymnastics for which even Marx did not prepare them. But their formal adherence to this and the rest of the Marxian mystique isolates them in America. Their fairy tale is not plausible enough to be dangerous. It is the bureaucratic socializers—if I may devise that label for the champions of a lawyer-manager-politician-intellectual revolution—who constitute a real and subtle threat to America’s democracy. It is their dream that is moving into focus as that of Lenin grows dim.  The assumption common to these two dreams is that society can be made more free and equal, and incidentally more orderly and prosperous, by a state apparatus which takes charge of the economy, and runs it according to a plan. And this assumption, though alluringly plausible, does not happen to be true. A state apparatus which plans and runs the business of a country must have the authority of a business executive. And that is the authority to tell all those active in the business where to go and what to do, and if they are insubordinate put them out. It must be an authoritarian state apparatus. It may not want to be, but the economy will go haywire if it is not."   https://fee.org/articles/the-alluring-falsehood-of-socialism/

This is a very, very interesting piece.  It's focus is on the vast number of parasites that populate our society.  You will be surprised at who some of them are.   https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/02/23/the-plight-of-the-parasites/

The recklessness of the Democrats is astounding.  If this scandal gets exposed and is proven true they are in deep, deep trouble.    http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/explosive-new-hacking-scandal-has-democrats-fingerprints/

The left's irrational "feelings" instead of facts regarding the vetting of refugees gives rise to false truths.  These are some of them.  Quote: "The sober and logical reasons for President Donald Trump’s executive order on refugees and visitors are rising above the noise after an evening of hysterical over-reactions and emotional meltdowns on the nation’s TV networks.  Advocates of sane, secure immigration policy have long noted that it’s almost impossible to have a reasonable discussion of the refugee and immigration issues, because it’s been sentimentalized and politicized beyond the realm of rational thought.  This weekend brings them another superb example of media-magnified shrieking about fascism, bleating about “white nationalists,” howling about “religious persecution,” falsely invocations of the Constitution, and theatrical sobbing on behalf of the Statue of Liberty.  For readers who want to wallow in the emotion, examples can be found in this handy dossier of hysteria compiled by the Washington Post. But clear-eyed adults prefer to examine plain facts about Trump’s executive order."    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/01/29/seven-inconvenient-facts-about-trumps-refugee-actions/   

This Chinese billionaire offers America some needed insights.  Quote: "Like Trump, Ma also accused multinational corporations of profiting from globalization. “The American multinational companies made millions and millions of dollars from globalization,” Ma said. “The past 30 years, IBM, Cisco, Microsoft, they’ve made tens of millions — the profits they’ve made are much more than [those of] the four [largest] Chinese banks put together… But where did the money go?”  For many companies, the profits wound up overseas in offshore tax havens, or even in places like Nevada where protected onshore havens are managed by the infamous Rothschild family.  Ma stated that too much money in the U.S. is not distributed widely enough, and this is a cause of economic anxiety. He said that too much wealth flows to places like Silicon Valley and Wall Street, into the pockets of people who are far, far richer than the average American.  Instead, Ma said, the U.S. should be helping people in places like the Midwest and helping more Americans get better schooling. “You’re supposed to spend money on your own people. Not everybody can pass [up] Harvard, like me.”  Ma said he believes in global trade, but that it “should be inclusive,” with the profits not simply being funneled to the wealthy few. “The world needs new leadership, but the new leadership is about working together,” Ma stated. “As a business person, I want the world to share the prosperity together.”    http://www.wealthauthority.com/articles/jack-mas-wise-words-for-america/

In follow-up to the previous item, this summarizes the current day political left which is little more than socialism at best or communism at worse.  Quote: "On several occasions I have asked in my columns the rhetorical question: What became of the left? Today I answer my question.  The answer is that the European and American left, which traditionally stood for the working class and peace (bread and peace) no longer exists. The cause championed by those who pretend to be the “left” of today is identity politics.  The “left” no longer champions the working class, which the “left” dismisses as “Trump deplorables,” consisting of “racist, misogynist, homophobic, gun nuts.” Instead,the “left” champions alleged victimized and marginalized groups—blacks, homosexuals, women and the transgendered. Tranny bathrooms, a cause unlikely to mobilize many Americans, are more important to the “left” than the working class.  All white-skinned peoples except leftists, including apparently victimized women, are racist by definition.  Racism and victimization are the explanations of everything, all of history, all institutions, even the US Constitution. This program of the left cuts the left off from the working class, who have been abandoned by both political parties, and has terminated the left’s connection to the people."  And, "Thus, jobs offshoring permitted the productivity gains to be monopolized by corporate owners and executives.  Instead of responding to Trump’s support of the working class and his actions in their behalf during the first week of his presidency—Trump’s termination of TPP and his demand to auto manufacturers to bring manufacturing back to America—the “left” has rallied around a victim group—illegal immigrants. The “left” even elevates non-US citizens above the US working class.
Trump was elected by the working class. If the left is defined historically as the champion of the working class, then Donald Trump is their champion and the “left” is their enemy."     https://www.theburningplatform.com/?

Consider this.  If increased terrorist acts are in our future Obama owns total responsibility for them.  Quote: "The Department of Homeland Security stopped more than 22,000 “high-risk” travelers from entering the United States in 2015, but officials remain uncertain about how effective these security screening methods are, opening the possibility that risky individuals such as terrorists are still being approved for entry into America, according to a new government report highlighting these flaws."     http://freebeacon.com/national-security/thousands-terrorists-foreign-fighters-tried-enter-america-new-data-shows/?

Food for thought.  Quote: "Those who have been leading us down the garden path of liberty and conspiracy have failed to both recognize and educate the disorganized masses on the actual methodology of the multilateral transmutation of the international monetary system. Reducing the power and influence of the Federal Reserve fits exactly into the mandates of the multilateral.  The same can be said of the political platform of Donald Trump. The “Make America Great Again” pledge and mantra is the condensed talking point which is based on the depreciation of the dollar. This multilateral depreciation will reduce the cost of US manufactured goods and increase exports. This means higher GDP, reduced debt-to-GDP ratio, and more jobs for Americans.  The multilateral mandates are being sold to Americans through alternative media and establishment opposition. The analysis presented here on POM has been attacked and/or ignored by so many sites which promise the truth. Yet, readers and followers of those sites and  personalities have been left more confused and less informed about everything that is taking place internationally.  Long-time readers of POM have been provided a front row seat on the transition from a unipolar USD dominated world to a multilateral SDR denominated world. The fact that so much of the information presented here is trending accurately is a testament to the validity of the analysis.  Who would have thought that the Bank for International Settlements and the Tea Party, Ron Paul, and the Alex Jones network would all want the same thing? Truth is definitely stranger than fiction, and conspiracy theory is not the conspiracy we thought it was at all. – JC  Interested readers may also gain additional insight into the strategies and workings of the international banking interests by reading the post The Bretton Woods Origin of the Cold War.    https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/01/30/trump-is-about-to-hammer-the-federal-reserve/    We need to look beyond the obvious.  Truth may be lurking in places other than where we are told it is. 

This piece illustrates that left leaning people seem to have lost the ability to think properly.  Consider the US tax policies proposed by Trump and the illogical defense of current tax policy supported by the left.  Quote: "The top rate proposed by the new administration (33%) is substantially lower than the maximum rate under President Obama (43.8%). Furthermore, a standard deduction of $12,000 means, on average, the middle class will get an additional $12k worth of tax-exempt income. Economic growth comes from CONSUMER spending. Increase the net disposable income and that will jump-start the economy. Of course, the Democrats will oppose this because they never saw a dollar they did not want to get their hands on. They tend to forget their history; the FIRST tax cut after World War II was implemented by John F. Kennedy."     https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/01/26/trumps-tax-reduction-follows-john-f-kennedy-approach/

Things To Consider 1

1.  A grim prediction.  The false belief in Keynesian economics by many in governments around the world including ours, especially the disastrous Obama years is destroying global financial stability.  I do not know if this is what the future holds but it would not surprise me if this or something like it were to come to pass.  The undercurrents of this kind of looming calamity has been rumbling  for a good while.   https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/02/13/made-for-each-other/#more-143142

2.   If you never understood the tactics the left has been employing against our country for years this will help you understand.  Both Obama and Hillary are students of Saul Alinsky's book  "Rules for Radicals".  The Obama years were filled with these tactics and Hillary, if elected, would have furthered their execution.  Obama taught the tactics in law school and intends to employ them as he seeks to undermine Trump's presidency.  Hillary wrote her college senior thesis on the subject.  If you do not believe me look it up.  You never heard them refer to "Rules for Radicals" nor did the mainstream media dare to report their links to that communist inspired book.  This link provides needed insight.    http://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2017/02/13/shoving-alinskys-rules-for-radicals-right-back-in-the-lefts-ugly-face-n2284892?utm_source=thdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl&newsletterad

3.  Have you heard about Obama's "Organizing for Action"?  It is his application of Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" a book seeking the destruction of the United States, a book many on the left revere.  Organizing for Action is Obama's operation whose sole goal is to fight every action Trump takes.  It is literally sedition.  Even some Democrats call his effort "the Devil".  My own opinion is that this is an apt description and warrants his arrest for sedition.  His presidency was a disaster filled with many Alinsky-like actions bent on undermining our country's foundation.  Don't believe me?  Read this piece. Quote: "Just a week ago, WND’s former Washington bureau chief Paul Sperry portrayed OFA in the New York Post as an army “gearing up for battle, with a growing war chest and more than 250 offices across the country” manned by 32,525 volunteers nationwide, run by old Obama aides and campaign workers armed with his 2012 campaign database.  Sperry called it Obama’s “army of agitators — numbering more than 30,000 — who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.  Sperry warned Obama would be “working behind the scenes to set up what will effectively be a shadow government to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration,” and that “it’s drawing battle lines on immigration, Obamacare, race relations and climate change.”     http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/now-democrats-call-obama-shadow-government-the-devil/  

4.  This is a logical follow-up to the previous item.  http://patriotupdate.com/obama-cronies-prepare-war-training-manual/    Anyone who believes a former president, especially a failed one, should engage in behavior that interferes with the state of the nation after his departure needs to rethink that thought.  It is treasonous.  And Obama is a very thin skinned man and delusional to boot.  Defending his disasters is a fools errand and extraordinarily bad for the country.  He needs to put his ego aside and act like a grown man.   More.   http://www.libertyheadlines.com/obama-continues-operate-dc-undermine-trump/?   Yet more.  http://greatamericandaily.com/2017/02/16/plot-against-trump-accusing-obama-officials-treason/   Unfortunately for our nation and the citizenry he was neither a good president nor is he a good man.    

5. What does this tell you about so many who subscribe to the secular, amoral and socialistic left?  One thing for sure is they have absolutely no tolerance for anything religious, unless it is Islam which is a totally irrational position to take given their opposite positions on hot topics like homosexuality and women's rights.  But then no one has accused the political left of being rational.   https://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2017/02/20/liberals-attack-melania-for-reciting-lords-prayer-at-rally-n2288312?  

6.  Talking about those who follow the "Rules for Radicals" principles.  It seems too obvious that far too many court justices do too.    http://townhall.com/columnists/ilanamercer/2017/02/13/coequal-in-tyranny-the-ninth-circuits-rules-for-radicals-n2285150?utm_source=thdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl&newsletterad

7.  Good news for a change regarding George Soros.  People in Europe are tired of his interfering in their nations politics/governance.  Quote: "A new initiative called Stop Operation Soros (SOS) is launching in the Balkan nation of Macedonia to counter the influence of globalist billionaire George Soros.  The founders of the group called on all “free-minded citizens” to join them in the “fight against one-mindedness in the civil sector, which is devised and led by George Soros,” reports a Slovenian newspaper. Soros-funded non-government organizations have monopolized civil society in Macedonia and used their influence to suppress dissenting views, said SOS cofounder Nikola Srbov.  “The Open Society Foundation, operating under the Soros umbrella, used its funding and personnel to support violent processes in Macedonia,” he said in a press conference Tuesday. “That is unacceptable and goes beyond the principles of civic organizing.”     http://www.infowars.com/stop-soros-movement-sweeps-europe/   As you probably know Soros is a big time operative inside the Democrat party doing the same things for them as he does in Macedonia and elsewhere. He has been close with both Obama and Hillary.  The man should be behind bars for all the chaos he has created in the name of his global socialistic objectives.   If you still don't think Soros is a bad guy, check out this piece.   http://www.libertyheadlines.com/soros-mastercard-join-forces-profit-immigration/?

8.  Want to learn more about the nefarious activities in which George Soros engages?  He was a funder of the recently completed global women against Trump marches.  Quote: "However, that’s when she started looking at Soros’ involvement.  “Following the money, I pored through documents of billionaire George Soros and his Open Society philanthropy, because I wondered: What is the link between one of Hillary Clinton’s largest donors and the ‘Women’s March’?” Nomani wrote. “I found out: plenty.”  She continued: “Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the march’s ‘partners,’ including ‘key partners’ Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies."    http://conservativetribune.com/womens-march-funder-unmasked/?   More on this unsavory and unethical man.    http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/soros-plans-endless-orchestrated-deportation-protests/ 

9.  The radical political left is a real and present danger to our Republic.  This is but one of a mounting number of examples.     http://www.wnd.com/2017/02/thomas-jefferson-statue-defaced-at-his-own-alma-mater/   How about another one.   http://www.conservativefreepress.com/politics/netflix-rage-subscribers-condemn-dear-white-people-trailer/    They come in all different kinds, ways and means but all are destructive to a civil society. 

10.  This is indicative of an infantile media.  No wonder they are killing their ratings.  This item explains.  Quote: "The media are, all too often, the enemies of truth. That’s both because they lie outright and because they construct narratives targeting conservatives from a core of facts, but twist those facts beyond recognition. The media should be fought tooth and nail – with truth, not lies. And the truth is that no media in its right mind would run a headline like this about any president."   http://www.dailywire.com/news/13658/insane-headline-nbc-news-why-conservatives-hate-ben-shapiro?    They have reached the point where they do not even try to hide their biases and obvious fake news. 

11.  This should scare you.   https://www.theburningplatform.com/2017/02/17/the-deep-state-targets-trump/    The radical left is attempting to destroy Trump's presidency.  They care not one bit for decency, the people or our Republic.  They care only about power and control.  They have been reduced to acting like a criminal enterprise which all of us should resist.

12,  Our nation's infrastructure is falling into disrepair.  State and federal government squandering of our nation's resources on trivia instead of substance is the cause.  Now we are approaching potential disasters thanks to leaders in both political parties.  Looking after things that grner votes has consumed our elected officials rather than looking after the welfare of our nation.  Now we have serious problems like this piece lays out.   http://www.americanlibertyreport.com/articles/10-alarming-facts-about-americas-infrastructure/ 

This is a must read.  It deals with a former Mexican official, now a NYU professor, interviewed by Tucker Carlson.  Here is what the professor is up to:  "Yes I want to use the U.S. judicial system—the immigration courts in particular-- to jam, to backlog it so perhaps President Trump will change his mind and stop this ridiculous policy-- this unpleasant and hostile policy-- of deporting people...” (Jorge Castañeda to Tucker Carlson, Fox News, 2/14/17.)  And, "The Mexican government itself has pledged $50 million in legal defense funds towards this jamming of U.S. courts as planned and promoted by Jorge Castaneda."  And, "The “former” Mexican Communist who describes Che Guevara as “Christ-like” presumes to “reform” the U.S. judicial system—and liberals applaud."    https://townhall.com/columnists/humbertofontova/2017/02/18/tucker-carlson-grills-former-mexican-official-who-plots-to-sabotage-us-court-system-with-thousands-of-deportation-cases-n2287205?   This communist sympathizer seeks to overload our court system for the purpose of permitting Mexicans and foreign nationals who entered this country illegally to participate in the destruction of our country.  Democrats and leftist elites are accomplices in this treasonous activity, led by Obama.
