Chuck & Nancy can’t defend their wall ‘outrage’

President Trump in his Oval Office speech on Tuesday night gave his most presidential appearance of his term.

Trump was passionate and reserved as he pointed out to the American people the dire need for border security. He concisely pointed out the carnage and mayhem being brought upon this country because of illegal aliens.

His best line of the night centered on the morality of building a wall. “People don’t build walls because they hate the people on the outside, they build walls because they love the people on the inside,” the President said.

Now realizing of course that we are too far down the shutdown road for this, but liberal left politicians spend $5 billion in a cocaine heartbeat on their different agendas.

So if it’s not the amount of money needed for the wall, what is the Democrats rational for not funding the President’s request besides not giving him an important victory now?

Neither Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer nor House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were able to inform the American people why they were against building the wall.

“It’s not as dangerous” as the President says. Is not an answer for the California police officer’s family and others cite by the President.

I’ll venture a guess as to why the liberals are against effective border security. The same reason the European Union is being overrun by Muslims. The globalists’ open borders agenda has brought out the yellow vests in force throughout France, Belgium and Germany to name a few.

Closing the border effectively would also reduce the Democratic Party’s ability to maintain its viability to recruit new members.

While all the parties will meet Wednesday to discuss further funding for border security,  nothing will come of it. So the ball will be in Trump’s court to declare a national emergency or a limited military action at the border to finish building sections not already funded and being constructed.

Chuck and Nancy chose the hill they wanted to die on, but could not give the American people the real reason for this futile effort.

It’s time for the President to move on to more important matters.

Kavanaugh’s confirmation will put Feinstein in spotlight

======================= SPECIAL SATURDAY POSTING ==================

SCOTUS Associate Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s vote will happen on Saturday afternoon despite efforts by Senator Feinstein to wrangle up dissenting votes.

Note Feinstein has a phone in her right hand, which may at some point in the future may allow us to know what this heated conversation was all about. Certainly the NSA knows what was said by whom.

Senator Feinstein has Senator Murkowski backed into a corner prior to Brett Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS confirmation vote.

Judging from body language and facial expressions it was not an enjoyable discussion at all.

This very well could be the beginning of the end for Sen. Feinstein as Kavanaugh’s confirmation will now allow the FBI to fully investigate how her office handled the Dr. Ford materials and leaked them to the press.

Not to mention that Feinstein had an alleged Chinese spy was part of her staff for almost 20 years.

If you saw the video of senators Schumer and Feinstein press conference, this woman has a lot more on her mind that just battling a SCOTUS nominee. It appears this is a life-threatening situation for the California Democrat.

Between now and Election Day we will see many allegations of corruption against Democrats, as the FISA documents are released and the charade that Kavanaugh’s accusers put on in the Senate over the last two weeks.

It will be very difficult for the House or the Senate to swing in the Dems favor once the charges are announced. The “Not Trump” movement will still be strong on both coasts but the middle of the country could swing red after hearing the fraudulent actions of some of the “safe” Democrats.

For me personally, I am looking forward to Michelle Obama’s “rock star” book tour allegedly kicking off in the middle of November, just as the county comes to realize that her husband’s administration was spying on a presidential candidate in order to help Hillary Clinton presidential aspirations.

It will make the Watergate scandal look like a routine breaking and entering charge.

 

 

 

Kavanaugh’s robe and Feinstein’s bracelets

The Brett Kavanaugh saga appears to be coming to a close as the FBI wraps up its seventh investigation into his past.

I also believe the FBI will continue its probe of the circumstances behind how Dr. Ford’s allegations were handled by Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein and her staff. The senator had Dr. Ford’s charges at the end of July and did nothing with them until after the Kavanaugh hearing.

Never raised the issues until somehow Dr. Ford’s name was released to the media and her allegations were made public. It was the same playbook as was used to get the FISA warrant. Leak information to friendly journalist on the left and then say “Aha” we should look into this in order to delay the vote.

I believe Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will call for a vote Wednesday and it may happen Thursday or Friday. There will be howls from the Democrats and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer but it will fall on deaf ears. I would be impressed if Kavanaugh is placed on the court by a 53-47 vote.

So what did all this get us? A Supreme Court Associate Justice who had a hand in writing the most draconian law in our nation’s history and not a word was spoken on it at his hearing for a life-time appointment.

I’m talking about the Patriot Act, which was passed into law soon after the 9-11 tragedy. I would have liked to hear his thoughts now on the implementation of this law and its conflict with many of the rights we used to enjoy from the Bill of Rights.

But alas no words on that, because he threw ice in someone’s face in a bar while in college. Fantastic. Glad it was dumbed down for us, so we didn’t have to expend anymore brainpower on it other than who we believed.

My next question is when will we see the unredacted FISA warrant?

This needs to happen relatively soon if you want it to filter down to the electorate in time for the midterms. This report will not get wide play in the media at first, the liberal bias will not allow for a team from the NY Times or Washington Post to dig in like they will on a 25 year-old tax dodge story involving President Trump’s father.

But I get ahead of myself.

Trust Sessions to shine sunlight on unredacted FISA documents

As I wrote on Tuesday, the ramifications of the glorious Constitutional Day of September 17th announcement to declassify the FISA application documents, I neglected one big move.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has notified Supreme Court Chief Judge John Roberts and Associate Judge Clarence Thomas that he no longer is recusing himself in the Russian collusion matters.

I assume upon release of the FISA documents relating to Carter Page, Sessions will announce that a non-partisan probe has concluded the Trump administration had no involvement with the Russians during the 2016 election and that he as chief law enforcement officer in the US will now pursue charges against the Obama administration for its complicit actions to sway the election for Hillary Clinton.

The Sessions recusal was really about allowing and documenting the illegal actions of those in the Department of Justice and FBI to continue unimpeded. Then once there was sufficient documentation of the systemic rot within the upper levels of both agencies the hammer dropped.

How do I know this is true? Look at the reactions from Democrats to the Trump announcement on declassifying the FISA documents. They use words like UNLAWFUL, DANGEROUS, LAWLESS, PROFOUND ALARM. For the Dems all these words ring true, but for Americans allowing sunlight in can only help disinfect these treasonous acts.

In a letter addressed to Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, Rod Rosenstein, Asst. Attorney General and Christopher Wray, FBI Director, Sens. Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and Mark Warner along with Rep. Adam Schiff deplore the intelligence chiefs to ignore the presidential directive.

And then the letter goes on to say that “the Gang Of Eight,” referring to themselves and others “should be briefed in person.” Really, you want to call yourself the Gang of Eight? Are you an offshoot of MS-13?

While many say Rosenstein is history if he bucks the president’s order on declassifying the FISA application, it is no longer his call. Sessions will be the president’s point man now. That’s why he communicated with SCOTUS.

It’s all about Sessions now. Trust Sessions.

Trump’s new capital gains tax cut spurs Dems again

President Trump and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin floated the idea of a $100B tax cut for Americans through a new capital gains tax change.

The administration is looking at indexing capital gains to inflation. Meaning if you bought an asset for $200,000 in 2001 and sold it in 2018 for $2 million the tax owed would be $1.8 million. When you account for inflation the $200K is $600K so the taxable profit would be  $1.4 million versus $2 million.

While the New York Times says this is targeted to the wealthy, this is true however capital gains taxes do reach down to what’s left of the middle class setting up their retirement.

Given the run up in the stock markets over the last 20 years, there are many in the middle class that could fall into this category.

But of course the Times went with a class-warfare angle to the story, suggesting that its a give back exclusively for the rich. Just like the prior middle-class tax cut, this move, which may attempt to bypass the need for Congressional action, are parts of Trump’s campaign pledge to put more of the people’s resources back in their hands.

Of course the Anti-Trump forces are already out in force screaming about growing deficits as if they have nothing to do with record US debt levels.

“At a time when the deficit is out of control, wages are flat and the wealthiest are doing better than ever, to give the top 1 percent another advantage is an outrage and shows the Republicans’ true colors,” said Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader. “Furthermore, Mr. Mnuchin thinks he can do it on his own, but everyone knows this must be done by legislation.”

The rollback of the economic philosophy that the few will pay for the many of the last administration, along with the changing of trade policies to put Americans first will be two of Trump’s major milestones.
