Will republicans release the FISA report or cover it up?

Will republicans release the FISA report or cover it up?
Sean Hannity and others have been talking about the FISA memo, otherwise known as the FISA abuse report, that some Republicans say exposes corruption in the FBI and Justice Department. FISA stands for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Some say the information in the FISA memo is jaw dropping, and others say it makes Watergate look insignificant in comparison. The current story is that most Republicans want to release the report to the public, but Democrats want it withheld. Democrat Adam Schiff went on CNN and said the memo should be withheld from the public because he doubts the American people will understand its contents.

As FBI Director Mueller Helped Cover Up Fla. 9/11 Probe, Court Docs Show

As FBI Director Mueller Helped Cover Up Fla. 9/11 Probe
Court documents recently filed by the government further rock the credibility of Russia Special Counsel Robert Mueller because they show that as FBI Director Mueller he worked to cover up the connection between a Florida Saudi family and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The documents reveal that Mueller was likely involved in publicly releasing deceptive official agency statements about a secret investigation of the Saudis, who lived in Sarasota, with ties to the hijackers. A Florida journalism nonprofit uncovered the existence of the secret FBI investigation that was also kept from Congress.

We have thankless NFL players “taking the knee” for causes that change with the wind

We have thankless NFL players “taking the knee” for causes that change with the wind.  The NFL players, owners and Roger Goodell should get down on their hands and knees and thank more than 620,000 Union soldiers who were wounded, maimed and died in the American Civil War freeing the slaves.

Why aren’t the players protesting the entrenched Chicago politicians who have destroyed the lives of so many black families?  They should have been upset to see children murdered on the streets and in their homes by thugs.  Where are the tears of grief and the outrage for that abandonment?

Football fans, black, white, red, yellow and brown are not going to reward players who disrespect the American flag, the National Anthem and our Country’s honor.  The players were given a talent for throwing a ball, for goodness sake.  Throwing a ball has given them a life-style only dreamed of by mortals.

Thank God you were able to achieve your dreams.  Now, do something for others who are crying out to you for help and keep politics out of it.

Harvard-Harris poll has absolutely terrible immigration news for Democrats

Harvard-Harris poll has absolutely terrible immigration news for Democrats

As I’ve said before, Democrats have been overplaying their hand - in spectacular fashion - for years. Their widespread assumption that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election in a landslide may be the most obvious example, but it’s certainly not the only instance, nor is it the most recent. That honor goes to the Schumer shutdown.

Dems were absolutely, positively, convinced that Trump would catch hell over the government shutdown.  They honestly expected a replay of 2013. They didn’t get one. It quickly became clear that the American people were aware that Democrats had initiated the shutdown, they had leveraged children’s healthcare against their agenda, and that agenda was designed to help millions of illegal immigrants.

The Humanitarian Hoax of DACA

The Humanitarian Hoax of DACA
The Humanitarian Hoax is a deliberate and deceitful tactic of presenting a destructive policy as altruistic. The humanitarian huckster presents himself as a compassionate advocate when in fact he is the disguised enemy.

Obama, the humanitarian huckster-in-chief, weakened the United States for eight years presenting his crippling Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) advocacy as altruistic when in fact it was designed for destruction. His legacy, the Leftist Democrat Party with its ongoing Resistance movement, is the party of the Humanitarian Hoax attempting to destroy the capitalist infrastructure of American democracy through deceitful immigration reforms. This is how it works.

VIDEO: Starving Venezuelans loot truck filled with live chickens
This comes via a Mexican newspaper called Excelsior, and it references an event that took place last week.

The video, via Twitter, is only 11 seconds long. The truck carrying the chickens has just rear-ended someone, and as it’s stopped to deal with the aftermath of the collision, people in the state of Aragua who’ve been having trouble finding food swoop in for a score:

About That Frightening Look of Fury on Your Momma’s Face
It’s not taking a look in the mirror that the ‘Mean Girls’ out on the latest Women’s March need to do, as Fox News Insider Tomi Lahren suggests.

The ‘Mean Girl’ marchers should take the time to look into the faces of their own children when they’re out on the rampage.

Children, including toddlers in strollers, are being dragged out on these marches where thousands of women—and men—take to the streets to screech out their rage over Donald Trump having ben elected president.

Strzok and Page texted about starting a ‘secret society’ within the FBI after Trump won

Strzok and Page texted about starting a 'secret society' within the FBI after Trump won
I think these two might have been taking themselves just a little too seriously. I actually think I can relate. I tend to have a mission-driven personality myself, and I know how hard it is to accept when all objective facts tell you the mission can’t be accomplished.

I’ll find another way! Some way! There has to be a way!

Strzok and Page seem to have been so invested in the stop-Trump-at-all-costs mission that even after he won - the very definition of failing to stop him - they weren’t quite ready to process it was time to move on. They’d already compromised the integrity of the FBI by covering up Hillary’s claims while trumping up charges against Trump, so hey. In for a dime, in for a dollar, right?

Do low-carb diets really do anything? (video)

WASHINGTON — Some fads never die. Low-carb diets were a thing in the late 90s and they’re still a thing now. But why does this fad have staying power? Is it because the touted benefits are real? Or is that greasy, low-carb burger fried in snake oil? Learn about the surprising medical benefits of ketogenic diets in this video from Reactions:

The Better President

The Better President
Ever since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, the Democratic politicians and the mainstream news media have been fabricating falsehoods about our duly elected president.

Let’s start with the sexual misconduct allegations by many prominent Democrats who have called on Trump to resign.

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont said: “We have a president who acknowledged on tape that he assaulted women,” he tweeted the day Franken resigned. “I would hope that he pays attention to what’s going on and think about resigning.”

So, did the Democrats lose ‘bigly’ with their ridiculous shutdown? Let’s see what the media thinks..

So, did the Democrats lose 'bigly' with their ridiculous shutdown? Let's see what the media thinks….
Last week, the media was salivating over the prospect of a federal shutdown.  They were, like the Democrats, 100% sure that Republicans (and specifically Donald Trump) would catch the blame just like they did back in 2013.  Unfortunately for them, it didn’t work out that way.

It became immediately clear that the “shutdown” was a Schumer-orchestrated ruse, designed to tie virtually everything the government does to illegal immigration.  It was pig-headed, unnecessary, and ill-conceived.  Like most of the stunts Dems have tried over the course of the last year, it was representative of a party desperately overplaying its hand.

Deport alien criminals. Stop chain migration

I just don’t get why it is so difficult. Secure the border, enforce immigration laws starting today. Deport alien criminals. Stop chain migration. Protect the so called Dreamers. With that we would then be a nation with borders and laws.

Children and young people deserve our thoughtful consideration of their future. But they absolutely must not be used as pawns to bring in anyone else. Those people should follow the process that all good immigrants before them have followed. And future DACA members should be prevented.

Democrats need to remember that we have granted amnesty in the past with the assurance that it would never happen again. And here we are. Let’s get it right this time so we can move on to other pressing problems. This should be an easy one, only when there are ulterior motives does it become complicated.

Will the Protests in Iran Affect the Regime’s Priorities?

Will the Protests in Iran Affect the Regime's Priorities?
During the recent waves of protests in Iran, much criticism was voiced against the country’s involvement in regional conflicts, particularly given the difficult economic situation within Iran itself. Demonstrators called for resources to be diverted from overseas to benefit the Iranian population. The large protests have since declined, but there are still some semblances of protest, indicating the resistance among portions of the public to continue sustaining the economic hardships. This article discusses the implications of the economic situation for the Iranian regime’s national priorities, including its support for elements engaged in undermining regional stability in the Middle East.

Pilate also washed his hands

President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was the right thing to do and a predictable and appropriate response to former President Barack Obama’s benighted decision to engineer the U.N. Security Council resolution to declare Judaism’s holiest places in Jerusalem to be occupied territory and a “flagrant violation under international law. Obama’s decision was done out of personal revenge against P.M. Netanyahu and totally nothing to do with long-standing American policy. This was a decision striking right at the very heart of Israel. There is a good argument to be made that Obama made peace in the middle east more difficult and Trump made it more possible.

Virtually everyone in the international community agrees that Israel has a legitimate claim to these and other areas of Jerusalem. Obama’s resolution would make criminals out of Israeli’s who have a perfect right to access Jewish holy sites. Trump was simply acknowledging what everyone in Israel already knows. Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state and moving the American embassy there was the right thing to do and helped restore an appropriate balance in the U.N. and this has been a long-standing American tradition.

Regrettably, Canada was one of 35 countries that abstained from the voting. This is strangely reminiscent of the cowardly Pilate, governor of Judaea who “took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person”. Thousands of Hebrew inscriptions throughout Israel, numerous archaeological finds, and the Bible itself proves beyond any dispute that Israel’s roots run very deep in this their land. It is nothing short of outrageous to rule that Jews are not allowed access to their historic holy sites. The fact that the U.N. sees things differently changes nothing and certainly will not change the mind of the One Who made the covenant with Abraham 4000 years ago.

Let the best lead the rest.

The US Senate has passed a short-term funding bill that will put a stop to the government shutdown or at least until February 8th. It was always likely to be resolved or put on hold within a few days but what does this really mean on the global scale?

It’s an easy throw away quip to say that no governmnent may actually be an improvement over the Trump led government but how much difference will it make to the unemployed, the refugees and the hundreds of thousands who face deportation? Our political futures are too big a concern to give to the petty politicians we seem to have in most countries.

This ‘minor’ political catastrophe has value in the light it shines on politicians who should be the best we have. Other countries should not be gloating about their own performances as the events may be different but the characters are the same.

Let the best lead the rest.
