Trump's Triumph in Dramatic Joint Session Speech Endows Him with Undeniable Aura of the Presidency

More than the Inauguration, this was the moment Trump showed his ability to govern and inspire!

Even Democrat pundits are having a hard time criticizing Trump's triumph in the speech to a Joint Session of Congress. In many ways it was a clear contrast with Obama when Trump said "my job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the United States of America," And not afraid to say the words radical Islamic terrorism.

Thunderous applause when Trump vowed to repeal and replace ObamaCare then went on to spell out the specifics of what that replacement might include. Most important, giving the choice back to the people, not to the government as to what plan they want.
TRUMP: Here are the principles that should guide the Congress as we move to create a better healthcare system for all Americans:

First, we should ensure that Americans with preexisting conditions have access to coverage, and that we have a stable transition for Americans currently enrolled in the healthcare exchanges. (Applause.)

Secondly, we should help Americans purchase their own coverage through the use of tax credits and expanded Health Savings Accounts -- but it must be the plan they want, not the plan forced on them by our government. (Applause.)

Thirdly, we should give our great state governors the resources and flexibility they need with Medicaid to make sure no one is left out. (Applause.)

Fourth, we should implement legal reforms that protect patients and doctors from unnecessary costs that drive up the price of insurance, and work to bring down the artificially high price of drugs, and bring them down immediately. (Applause.)

And finally, the time has come to give Americans the freedom to purchase health insurance across state lines -- (applause) -- which will create a truly competitive national marketplace that will bring costs way down and provide far better care. So important.
A Widow's Pain, A Nation's Honor
Carryn Owens looks to the heavens as audience honors her fallen husband.
A first for such addresses was the emotional and record breaking sustained ovation given to Carryn Owens the widow of Ryan Owens, a Navy Seal who died in Yemen in the first military action of Trump's presidency. Owens' father has been working with sympathetic anti-Trump media to denounce Trump for the raid that killed his son. Carryn Owens presence tonight largely ended that attempt to politicize Ryan's death.

It was a speech that made Democrats look small and petty for their blind obstruction of Trump's early presidency. Trump's speech included many references to job creation and putting workers like coal miners and others back to work. The Democrats, who used to be the party of labor, sat on their hands. They have now become the party of lawbreaking illegal immigrants and Muslims.

Despite Trump's triumph it's unlikely Democrats will see the light. When the President said "the time for trivial fights is behind us," Democrats hissed. Trump was statesmanlike but Dems can't let go of their childish losing behavior.

In closing Trump moved beyond policy specifics, and talked of his vision for the country as we approach our 250th anniversary in 2026:
TRUMP: Think of the marvels we can achieve if we simply set free the dreams of our people. Cures to the illnesses that have always plagued us are not too much to hope. American footprints on distant worlds are not too big a dream. Millions lifted from welfare to work is not too much to expect. And streets where mothers are safe from fear, schools where children learn in peace, and jobs where Americans prosper and grow are not too much to ask. (Applause.)

When we have all of this, we will have made America greater than ever before -- for all Americans. This is our vision. This is our mission. But we can only get there together. We are one people, with one destiny. We all bleed the same blood. We all salute the same great American flag. And we all are made by the same God. (Applause.)

When we fulfill this vision, when we celebrate our 250 years of glorious freedom, we will look back on tonight as when this new chapter of American Greatness began. The time for small thinking is over. The time for trivial fights is behind us. We just need the courage to share the dreams that fill our hearts, the bravery to express the hopes that stir our souls, and the confidence to turn those hopes and those dreams into action.

From now on, America will be empowered by our aspirations, not burdened by our fears; inspired by the future, not bound by the failures of the past; and guided by our vision, not blinded by our doubts.

I am asking all citizens to embrace this renewal of the American spirit. I am asking all members of Congress to join me in dreaming big, and bold, and daring things for our country. I am asking everyone watching tonight to seize this moment. Believe in yourselves, believe in your future, and believe, once more, in America.

Thank you, God bless you, and God bless the United States.

Left Wing Nuts Suffer Grandiose Delusions. Claim to Speak "In the Name of Humanity," Call Trump "Worse than Hitler"

Something is seriously wrong with these people and you can't blame it on Trump!

Every Republican president gets tagged by the angry left as Hitler. Reagan was Hitler, Bush was Hitler. Blah, blah, blah!

At the heart of their deluded thinking is the notion that America should be a one party state with the far left in charge. Yet they don't see the irony between that desire and the real Hitler.

For another example take this angry, shrill clown who appeared on the Tucker Carlson show last week. If you haven't seen it, it's worth the viewing:

Trump worse than Hitler!

The goal of this group is to "Drive out the Trump/Pence regime." Presumably to replace it with something approved by this bunch of nuts.

They complain about Trump being in charge of America's nuclear arsenal but would you want this chick to have her finger on the nuclear trigger?

Does this idiot realize how ridiculous she is? Does she really presume to speak "in the name of humanity?" I thought ObamaCare provided mental health benefits?

The constant claim that Trump is worse than Hitler is indicative of deep seated misunderstanding of history as well as probably evidence of mental illness. And as Bill Ozanick writes at The Hill, it "says a lot more about the accuser than the accused!"

The more these kooks, clowns and freak scream about Trump the more ridiculous they appear and the more marginalized they become. And guess who benefits the most from their foolishness? TRUMP!

"Sacred" Earth Lovers Start Fires, Leave Garbage, Toxic Waste and Abandon Puppies At Pipeline Protest

These are the folks who claim they care about the environment?

State government finally cleared the Oceti Sakowin protest camp in North Dakota. The group set up a camp protesting an oil pipeline claiming it would soil their "sacred" Indian lands.

How sacred those lands are after the protesters left is unclear. Piles of trash litter the site along with buildings that the protesters set on fire. The sacred habitat they pledged to protect has been horribly scarred by their actions.

From the Star Tribune:
CANNON BALL, N.D. — Authorities this week cleared the last holdouts from a large Dakota Access pipeline protest camp on federal land in North Dakota, but it will be a while before the region returns to normal.
"This was beautiful North Dakota prairie in a sensitive watershed area," Gov. Doug Burgum said of the square-mile protest camp at the confluence of the Missouri and Cannonball rivers. "It's only use prior to this was for cattle grazing."
Meanwhile, workers are racing against time to clean up hundreds of tons of debris at the camp before spring melt floodwaters wash it into the rivers. Trash and structures need to be cleared, some garbage will have to be dug up, and soil contamination from such things as fuel and human waste might also need to be removed.

"This isn't just high school kids picking up garbage in a ditch along the road," Burgum said.
Worse still, protesters abandoned dogs and puppies at the site requiring rescue:

Readers may recall the filth spawned by other left wing protests like Occupy Wall Street. Why does the media, who gives these groups so much positive coverage for their message always give the truth about these groups a pass? Answer: FAKE NEWS!

Screwup: Did the Russians Hack the Oscars? Anti-Trump Truthers at Oscars Can't Even Read the Right Card!

Yet these fools want to lecture us on Trump?

Did you see the anti-Trump echo chamber at the Oscars? I didn't bother. Who cares what a bunch of people who play make believe for a living think about politics.

But it was fun to learn that the same people calling Trump every name in the book (and inventing some new ones) can't even manage to do the ONE JOB for which they are there. They awarded the Best Picture Oscar to the wrong film and had to take it away so the black guy could win. Sort of like affirmative action.

Remember, these are the folks who think they are sooo much smarter than the rest of us and have no problem condescending to tell us what to do.

Will Meryl Streep & Hollywood Establishment Who Cheered Pedophile Roman Polanski Face Same Shunning as Milo Yiannopoulos

Of course not. But if Milo was a left winger, he would be praised for his comments!

Libertarian Bad Boy, Milo Yiannopoulos, is in trouble. His remarks about younger boys and older men having sex went too far for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) which dis-invited him from speaking after they came to light. Milo's book deal also feel through.

His words were offensive and CPAC took the right action. But consider for a moment what would be the reaction on the left if Milo were one of them.

Roman Polanski, a celebrated director of Hollywood movies was accused of drugging a 13 year old girl in 1977 at the home of actor Jack Nicholson and raping her repeatedly as she begged him to stop. The girl later recounted "I said, 'No, no. I don't want to go in there. No, I don't want to do this. No!"

Apparently, "no" means no if you are a Hollywood liberal!

In 2003 Hollywood awarded Polanski an Oscar. Watch as Meryl Streep, who frets so about Trump and women, gives Polanski a standing ovation along with her other Hollywood friends. Note Streep was seated near Jack Nicholson. Cue the player to the 50 second mark:

Milo Yiannopoulos discussed a hypothetical scenario based on his own experience and is outcast. Roman Polanski actually RAPED a 13 year old girl, fled from prison and is celebrated by the same people who think Trump is a danger to women. If Milo was a lefty he would be getting an award. Just another example of how the right upholds a higher standard and the hypocrisy of left wing phonies!

Tens of Thousands of Real Americans Show Support for Trump in Florida

But the same media that tout every attack on Trump by the left will forget this image by Monday!

If you missed the speech, it's here. In Melbourne, Florida on Saturday thousands of patriotic Americans inside and an overflow crowd of thousands more outside gathered to hear President Trump and offer their support. But if you watched the dishonest anti-Trump media would you would might not know about that as they were too busy covering the relative handful of protesters.

First Lady Melania Trump introduced her husband after leading the massive crowd in the Lord's Prayer. That as much as anything will drive the godless, or pro-Islamic left crazy!

More Smiles as Allies Canada and Israel Make White House Visits

In a week where Democrats are desperate to change the subject to their mudslinging, the real story is the parade of allies happy to see Trump in the White House!

After last weekend's busy trip to Florida with the Japanese Prime Minister President Trump welcomed Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau followed by Israel's Bibi Netanyahu. Photo highlights:

Canada's Justin Trudeau was all smiles. He made a point to show respect despite any differences.

Some on the left are going bonkers over this photo. Apparently they didn't mind when Obama put his feet up
on the desk. Does the left hate powerful women now?

Melania's first White House welcome was reserved for Israel's Bibi Netanyahu.
Netanyahu: "There is no greater supporter of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than President Donald Trump."

The Swamp Strikes Back: Obama Loyalists Still in Government Seek to Undermine Lawful Trump Administration with Illegal Leaks

The left used to worry about civil rights abuses of big government. Now they cheer them!

Remember all the hand wringing those on the left engaged in when discussing powers of the Federal Government to monitor communications of Americans? Apparently that's no longer an issue until the target for abuse is a Democrat and not a Republican.

Behind the scenes, a shadowy group of individuals working for the U.S. government, some in the previous Obama Administration, some still working but with loyalty to Obama appear to have orchestrated a series of leaks undermining the Trump Administration.

It started with the leaks of notes about Trump's phone calls to foreign leaders where it was suggested Trump threatened to send troops to Mexico. Now, it concerns retired General Michael Flynn, forced to resign as National Security Adviser after reports of a conversation with the Russian Ambassador was leaked.

A discussion between Flynn, an American citizen and a part of the Trump transition team should have been protected by law from any unauthorized release. But as we've seen in Seattle where a Judge simply ignores clear law to block Trump's immigration order the left has once again acted outside the law.

Throughout the news cycle Capitol Hill Democrats, joined by useful idiots like Sens. Graham and McCain, insist there must be an investigation into why Flynn had contacts with the Russians in the first place. Answer, it's HIS JOB! Funny how the same people who moaned about the costs of investigations when Hillary Clinton was the subject are now all hepped up for some investigatin.'

They need not bother on that score. In a LONG piece by the New York Times the paper reveals "no evidence" of any collusion between Trump's men and Russia. The real need for an investigation is who has been making these illegal leaks? And we can bet Dems will do everything they can to change the subject when that comes up.

In fact, Dems are so desperate to keep looking for the Russian under the bed that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Hillary coverup king Rep. Elijah Cummings rushed to the microphones yesterday after a fake Tweet purporting to be from General Flynn suggested he was fired to cover up for others in the Trump Administration. But to Democrats it won't matter if the source of their outrage is fake or not. It's all politics to them.

Here's the real problem. From Eli Lake: "The Political Assassination of Michael Flynn:"
Normally intercepts of U.S. officials and citizens are some of the most tightly held government secrets. This is for good reason. Selectively disclosing details of private conversations monitored by the FBI or NSA gives the permanent state the power to destroy reputations from the cloak of anonymity. This is what police states do.

In the past it was considered scandalous for senior U.S. officials to even request the identities of U.S. officials incidentally monitored by the government (normally they are redacted from intelligence reports). John Bolton's nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations was derailed in 2006 after the NSA confirmed he had made 10 such requests when he was Undersecretary of State for Arms Control in George W. Bush's first term. The fact that the intercepts of Flynn's conversations with Kislyak appear to have been widely distributed inside the government is a red flag.

Representative Devin Nunes, the Republican chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told me Monday that he saw the leaks about Flynn's conversations with Kislyak as part of a pattern. "There does appear to be a well orchestrated effort to attack Flynn and others in the administration," he said. "From the leaking of phone calls between the president and foreign leaders to what appears to be high-level FISA Court information, to the leaking of American citizens being denied security clearances, it looks like a pattern."
And another comment by Rep. Nunes:
"If [the Flynn conversation] was picked up inadvertently, then that would have had to have been approved by someone in the last administration to actually unmask his name so that the FBI or intelligence officials knew who it was on the other end of the phone talking to the Russian ambassador," Nunes told Fox News. "If, in fact, the press reports are right, someone made the decision to deliberately listen to General Flynn's phone calls and that is, I think, unprecedented, unwarranted and flat-out wrong."
Obamaites seek to protect Iran agreement

The main beneficiary of Flynn's ouster is Iran. Gen. Flynn was behind a move to make public the secret parts of the Iran deal which Obama refused to release. Those secret agreements may provide further ignominy to an already discredited deal and Obama's tattered legacy. The left will do anything to stop that from happening and former Obama aides are directly involved in an effort to fight Flynn from behind the scenes. In a report by the Free Beacon:
"It's undeniable that the campaign to discredit Flynn was well underway before Inauguration Day, with a very troublesome and politicized series of leaks designed to undermine him," said one veteran national security adviser with close ties to the White House team. "This pattern reminds me of the lead up to the Iran deal, and probably features the same cast of characters."

The Free Beacon first reported in January that, until its final days in office, the Obama administration hosted several pro-Iran voices who were critical in helping to mislead the American public about the terms of the nuclear agreement. This included a former Iranian government official and the head of the National Iranian American Council, or NIAC, which has been accused of serving as Iran's mouthpiece in Washington, D.C.

Since then, top members of the Obama administration's national security team have launched a communications infrastructure after they left the White House, and have told reporters they are using that infrastructure to undermine Trump's foreign policy.

"It's actually Ben Rhodes, NIAC, and the Iranian mullahs who are celebrating today," said one veteran foreign policy insider who is close to Flynn and the White House. "They know that the number one target is Iran … [and] they all knew their little sacred agreement with Iran was going to go off the books. So they got rid of Flynn before any of the [secret] agreements even surfaced."

Flynn had been preparing to publicize many of the details about the nuclear deal that had been intentionally hidden by the Obama administration as part of its effort to garner support for the deal, these sources said.

Flynn is now "gone before anybody can see what happened" with these secret agreements, said the second insider close to Flynn and the White House.
Note, Ben Rhodes was the key player in the Benghazi coverup who forced agencies to claim a video was the cause of the attacks.

In many of these agencies Obama Administration officials either remain in place because Democrats have blocked confirmation of their replacements or they have "burrowed in" to the civil service. There is no doubt that their loyalties lie more with Obama than with Trump.

Democrats have shown that they will go to any lengths for power. Even to the point of criminal behavior and corrupting the most highly secret government organizations to serve that lust for power. Trump must wake up to the reality that a cancer is growing inside the government he seeks to lead and deal with it now!

UPDATE: Hysteria Alert: Trump worse than 9/11 attacks and Pearl Harbor. These people are literally losing their minds!

Over Weekend Trip and Despite North Korea Missile Launch Trump Affirms Alliance with Japan Strong as Ever!

A reminder once again how Trump is restoring the confidence of our allies!

First official head of state visit to the Trump White House was British Prime Minister Theresa May. Both leaders stood next to the bush of Winston Churchill in the Oval Office which Trump restored after Obama's banishment of that visible symbol of allied unity.

Now, an important visit by one of our nation's strongest allies in the Pacific region. While the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was the first world leader to meet Trump in New York after he was elected, this visit affirms our strong alliance with a more informal meeting in Florida following official meetings in the White House on Friday.

Arriving in Florida aboard Air Force One. The Japanese Prime Minister arrived in Washington aboard his own 747. Now he can compare the ride to Trump's.

Golf was on the agenda at a Trump golf course:

And dinner at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate:

North Korea attempted to break up the party by firing a missile. So, time out for business as Trump and Abe affirmed allied unity. Trump: "I just want everybody to understand and fully know that the United States of America stands behind Japan, its great ally, 100 per cent."

Along for the ride were Trump's daughter Ivanka and husband Jared, a senior Trump adviser, and their children:

Treating our allies with respect and a good time. What a winning formula!

Pelosi Touts Muslim Religion While Ignoring Enslavement of Women

Whatever happened to the separation of church and state? Does it not apply to mosques?

During the recent wave of hyperbole and distortion by Democrats following Trump's Executive Order on Immigration House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi trotted out Indiana Rep. Andre Carson, whom she introduced as a “Muslim member of Congress.”

Not content to let that slide, Pelosi quietly whispered on an open mic to Carson: "tell them you're a Muslim."

Does anyone think Pelosi would EVER do that with a Christian? Pelosi and other Democrats have been silent on the genocide against Christians around the world and the enslavement of young women forced to be sex slaves for radical Islamic terrorists. The New York Times called the ISIS enslavement of women "A Theology of Rape" yet Pelosi and other Democrats who take to the streets in protest against Trump's order turn a blind eye. But just wait until the next false charge of rape on an American college campus and Pelosi and friends will gin up the outrage machine once more.

Pelosi: Friend to Muslims and Murderers

Pelosi ignored U.S. Law and Bush Administration pleading by holding
meeting as House Speaker with Bashir Assad in Damascus Syria 2007.
But we shouldn't overlook Pelosi's insistence that the speaker above identify himself as a Muslim. Pelosi has a soft spot for Muslims and the more evil the better. Perhaps readers have forgotten her meeting, as then House Speaker, with Bashir Assad, President of Syria. She met in the Syrian capital against the wishes of Bush Administration foreign policy officials and that event helped bring a certain level of legitimacy to Assad who went on to butcher children by the thousands.

How do Democrats square their identity on behalf of women's rights with their newfound desire to link themselves more closely with Muslims? By ignoring reality. Here's the reality of what Islamic Law means to women around the world:

Nancy Pelosi. Friend to Muslims everywhere!

Democrat's Revive Segregationist Protest by Blocking School Doors to Education Sec. DeVos

A system that once blocked poor black children from receiving a quality education is being revived to block reforms that would primarily aid poor black children in failing public schools!

Fifty four years ago Alabama Governor George Wallace, A DEMOCRAT, shouted "segregation now, segregation tomorrow and segregation forever." This is the same DEMOCRAT who stood in the door of a public school months later blocking access to black children:

George Wallace bars black students from public school. Dems today bar reformers
from fixing those schools and damage black kids opportunities for education.
Now, anti-education reform protesters, who blindly protest everything Trump stands for, blocked newly confirmed Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos from entering a public school in Washington, DC this week. First they attempted to block her vehicle from entering school grounds. Next, they races ahead of her and blocked steps to a side entrance. Video here.

DeVos later entered the school anyway despite physical effort to block here. Protesters represent a failed
education system that punishes poor black and minorities in two tier education.
Democrats are desperate to protect failing schools that remain a lucrative source of funds from corrupt teacher's unions. Stooges here blocking DeVos don't care about children. It's all about money and power. Follow the money here and it's a safe bet it leads right back to George Soros, who attempts to bring back "the happiest year of my life" working for the NAZIS rounding up Jews in Hungary!

Winston Churchill Quote is Perfect Description of Anti-Trump Radicals!

On Sir Winston Churchill's last visit to Parliament at the age of 90 the New York Times put out a sampling of the best Churchill quotes.  They are a legacy of wisdom and experience which continue to speak to the times we are in. For example:

Perhaps that explains why Obama removed the bust of Churchill from the Oval Office and Trump restored it!

9th Circuit Court Ignores Clear Power of the President and Upholds Stay on Trump Immigration Plan

What a waste of time!

Despite this example of "legislating from the bench" the legally vested powers of the President are very clear in this case:

From Gregg Jarrett:
President Trump may have lost the early legal skirmishes over his executive order on immigration, but in the end he will likely win.

The overwhelming weight of history and the law is on his side. The president does have the authority to ban the entry of foreigners, as long as he has what is called a “rational basis” to believe they pose a threat to the nation’s security. He does, and his order is designed to accomplish precisely that.

The seven nations targeted by Trump in his immigration ban were originally identified in an anti-terrorism law signed by President Obama. Unlike other Muslim-majority nations that have a history of terrorism, these seven countries do not assist the U.S. in providing background checks and other vetting of immigrant applicants. Thus, it is not only “rational” to deny entry, it is imperative for the safety of Americans. The U.S. does not have the resources to properly vet all these individuals on its own.

Shortly after the executive order was put in place, several federal court judges issued temporary restraining orders. Most of those TROs halted the detention and deportation of foreigners who had already been issued legal immigration visas. Many had already arrived in the U.S.

But that is a very small part of the president’s order. The merits of those TROs, not to mention the president’s order itself, have yet to be fully litigated. The judicial rulings were issued “ex parte”. That is, only one side was represented in court. The Trump administration lawyers haven’t even been given a chance to appear in court to say, “good morning, your honor.” All of that may change once both sides are represented in court.

The Washington State Case

The ruling in Seattle by U.S. District Court Judge James Robart was different and far more expansive. He issued a temporary hold on the immigration ban nationwide. Lawyers at the Department of Justice appealed to the 9th Circuit which refused to overturn Judge Robart’s ruling, although further briefs have been filed. Thereafter, the 9th Circuit could revisit its decision.

It is no surprise that the 9th Circuit got it wrong. It is the most overturned appellate court in the nation. There’s a joke among California lawyers: if you lose your case in the 9th Circuit, you’re assured of winning it before the Supreme Court. Get the picture?

Nevertheless, the Seattle ruling is the case to watch, in part because Washington became the first state to sue. Take a look at judge Robart’s decision. It is largely devoid of any legal reasoning or sound analysis. Its brevity is exceeded only by its lack of logic as applied to the law.

Absence of Standing to Sue

Washington State does not have “standing” to sue on behalf of its residents because they have suffered no "actual harm" from Trump's order.

In order to sustain a lawsuit, the plaintiffs must demonstrate their alleged injury is direct and real, not merely hypothetical. The harm must be imminent and irreparable, not speculative.

So how have Washington residents been harmed? Lawyers for the state suggest their economy will be adversely impacted because the ban may prevent immigrants from working for Washington-based companies. Taxes might be reduced and its education system could be affected.

However, all of that is pure conjecture. It might happen, but it might not. Hence, it does not constitute immediate “actual harm.” On that basis alone, the lawsuit should be dismissed.

Foreigners Do Not Enjoy Constitutional Rights

The vast majority of people affected by President Trump’s executive order are people who do not have legally valid immigration visas but are seeking entry to the United States by undertaking the lengthy application process. We are talking about hundreds of thousands of people.

The claim by Washington State that the immigration ban violates the First Amendment (freedom of religion) or the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments (equal protection clause) may seem, at first blush, like a reasonable argument. Until you consider that our Constitution applies only to citizens and those on American soil.

A man in Somalia may wish to invoke our Constitution to claim his freedom of religion is being infringed, but until he arrives here he enjoys none of its privileges and protections. He has no right to assert discrimination, religious or otherwise. And the state of Washington has no legal right to represent him in court. It can only represent its own residents.

The President Has Authority to Dictate Immigration

Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution gives Congress the power to regulate immigration. In 1952, Congress passed a law empowering the president to deny entry into the U.S. to “any class of aliens” considered to be “detrimental to the interests of the United States.” In other words, a threat to America and in the interests of national security.

As I pointed out in a recent column, the Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that Congress and the president have “plenary power” to regulate immigration. For more than a century, the high court has consistently upheld such authority and rejected constitutional challenges to presidential action banning entire groups of foreigners. Even the 9th Circuit has endorsed this legal principle. Past presidents, including Carter and Obama, have issued orders similar to Trump’s.

It is true that a subsequent 1965 immigration law prohibits discrimination based on race, sex, nationality, place of birth or place of residence. But that law says nothing about religion. And, more importantly, it applies only to the issuance of visas. The president’s authority to deny entry to a large class of aliens is a broader power which supersedes individual visa considerations.

Trump’s Executive Order Is Temporary

Lost in all the legal tumult is the fact that President Trump’s executive order is only temporary: It applies for just 90 days for people in the seven designated countries that are sources of terrorism and 120 days for “refugees.” (The Syrian ban is “indefinite,” but that could change, too.)

By the time each side has had the opportunity to fully litigate the merits of the various cases and undertaken the usual course of appeals, the executive order will likely have expired. That may render most of the cases moot. Absent a legal controversy, there would be nothing for judges to resolve. The petitions and lawsuits would probably be dismissed.

For now, however, the Seattle case may head to a hearing before the full complement of judges on the 9th Circuit Court, known as an “en banc” session. Or, the Department of Justice may seek an emergency application to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The latter action might be imprudent, since the current court has only eight sitting justices. A 4-4 tie would allow the 9th Circuit’s decision to stand. It would make more sense to wait for the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to cast the ninth, and perhaps deciding, vote. Given the great weight of the law in favor of the president, the decision should be unanimous. But why take the chance?
Democrats and the left have wasted more time defending immigrants from states that sponsor terror with this futile effort to block Trump! Shouldn't they be more worried about American citizens FIRST?

Big Wins As Trump Cabinet Gets DeVos and Sessions!

Now, give me Scott Pruitt at EPA!

Dismantling the Obama era government overreach won't be easy or quick. Democrats are doing everything they can to block Trump cabinet nominees who will lead that fight. There has been an unprecedented obstruction by Senate Democrats in the confirmation process resulting in a significant slowdown in the ability of those nominees to take office quickly.

But it's no more Mr. Nice Guy, at least for now, for Senate Republicans who have had it with the violation of standards of Senate conduct in Dem's blind obstruction. Dems have poisoned the water of polite, civil discourse and now complain about the smell in the water. Little good will it do them.

Two big confirmations this week.

Betsy DeVos, Secretary of Education: She's empowered to fix failing public schools and dramatically enrich the education experience, especially for inner cities minority children who have been held hostage by the teacher's unions.

Jeff Sessions, Attorney General: After years in the U.S. Senate he knows what's wrong with the Department of Justice and he'll restore the rule of law to a department which was grossly politicized during the past eight years!

Meanwhile, a new tax plan is in the works and House GOP leaders vow to move forward with the repeal and replacement of ObamaCare. America is going back to work and Trump will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Life of Critically Ill Patient Put at Risk As Anti-Trump Protesters Block Ambulance

Once again, left wing fascists put THEIR rights before everyone else!

It's not just that the left puts the desires of foreigners trying to enter the U.S. before the RIGHTS of American citizens, they also put the lives of Americans at risk for the sake of their own narcissistic protests.

Another case surfaced over the weekend of a protest in New Haven Connecticut which tied up traffic and blocked an ambulance with a critically ill patient from getting to the hospital. From the New Haven Independent:
According to a state police arrest, the demonstrators “obstructed an ambulance carrying a critically ill patient. Due to this delay ambulance personnel were required to perform an emergency medical procedure in the ambulance instead of at the hospital.” (Asked if the patient in the ambulance was OK, a state police spokeswoman responded, “Contact the hospital.” A hospital spokesman said he did not have information.)
A city police officer asked one of the protesters to move out of the way of an emergency vehicle, according to shift commander Lt. Sam Brown. Brown said the man refused to move. “The officers tried to guide him out of the way. He pushed an officer trying to get back.” The officers brought him to the ground and arrested him. (See photo at the top of the story.)

The arrestee, a barista at a downtown coffee shop, could not be reached for comment as this story was published.
Two arrests were made. That's one more arrest than at the mayhem in Berkeley California earlier in the week. Along with the ambulance blocker, one of the organizers was arrested. He knocked over his own supporters in an effort to flee from the police.

One protester wailed that the police with their dog was like being in "Selma." Another example of how delusional these loons are in pretending to be so abused by law enforcement. I'd say "show me where the dog bit you" before I listen to your complaints!

It's time to start cracking down on these fools. How is it that they get away with flaunting the law and abusing the rights of others while calling the rest of us fascists?

792 Foreigners Inconvenienced by Trump Travel Limitation, while Tens of Thousands Americans Delayed by Protesters

Once again, irony is lost on the left while they put their right to be heard above the rights of American citizens!

Readers may recall last year when Black Lives Matter and anti-Trump protesters blocked traffic in major cities and near Trump rallies as a form of protest. Like other left wing fascists protesting free speech they seem oblivious to the principle that liberty extends no further than the point where your rights infringe on others.

Last week they were at it again protesting Trump's temporary halt on immigration from a handful of countries. Not only did they lie about it but claiming it was a "Muslim ban" (ignoring the dozens of Muslim countries not included in the order) but they took to the nation's airports to vent their ill-informed rage. In the process they delayed or prevented tens of thousands of American citizens from getting to their destinations. THEIR action did more to deny the rights of citizens than the few hundreds who were blocked or delayed entry into the United States by the Trump order.

Protesters in Seattle Tacoma airport block travelers. Imagine trying to reach your flight through this mob!
Other airports in major cities saw similar demonstrations.

Protests Bankrolled by the Left

And if you thought these demonstrations were just spontaneous protests of citizens outraged by Trump's action to protect the homeland you would be wrong. It's all part of a well organized, well funded plan to sow dissension and anger across the country by various left wing groups, many with ties to the fascists currently rioting to block free speech!

What does it say about the left that they will protest in favor of non citizens, some of whom may be terrorists, yet not give a whit about infringing the rights of actual American citizens?

Left Wing Fascist Irony: Little Difference Between Nazi Book Burners and Rioters Burning Free Speech in California

They say they are fighting Trump fascism by behaving like.... FASCISTS!

It was once like this in early 1930's Germany:

NAZI book burning in 1933. Violence was an acceptable remedy to opposing ideas.
Book burning in Nazi Germany started with the National Socialist German Students’ Association. Today, at Universities across the U.S. that spirit is alive and well as it was at the University of California at Berkley on Wednesday night:

Rioting, destroying property and setting fires to protest free speech
event by Milo, a young conservative. Hitler would have loved it!

Proof: In Confirmation Hearings/Votes Democrats Increasingly Put Blind Partisanship Over Needs of the Country

Since Democrats persist in this behavior, Senate Republicans need not be bound by any past loyalty to traditions of the Senate!

In large part it used to be that the President gets the cabinet nominees he asks for. Days after his inauguration, Obama told Republican leader Cantor: “Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.” Obama did so in rejecting many of the ideas that Republican leaders brought with them to a White House meeting.

But Obama need not have worried about offending GOP leaders with that quote. He had already gotten many of his top cabinet nominees confirmed by the Senate with Republicans largely voting for swift confirmation.

Not so with Trump, but the double standard goes far deeper than that. Check this chart of confirmation votes for Secretaries of State:

Note that Democrat nominees largely sail through by nearly unanimous margins with large GOP support. The favor is not returned when GOP nominees face a vote. Dems slow walked Bush's pick of Condoleezza Rice in 2005 just as they are doing so now with Trump nominees. Only now it's much worse.

Dems Unprecedented Boycott 

Dems have taken their petulance to a whole new level of partisan rancor with Trump nominees. Witness the number of hearings where Democrats have taken the unprecedented step of not showing up at all when votes were set thus blocking the nomination from moving forward in committee with the lack of a quorum. This behavior is so extreme that Republicans have been forced to change the rules about quorums to move forward. Democrats are creating an atmosphere so charged with blind partisan obstruction that it weakens the gentile traditions of the U.S. Senate that have served the country well for so many decades.

Dems Unprecedented Demands

And when Dems do show up for hearings they make ridiculous demands of nominees. Before boycotting the committee vote to send confirmation of EPA Administrator designate Scott Pruitt to the floor Democrats insisted he answer more than 1,200 questions; an unprecedented and transparent political ploy to slow his nomination. Some perspective from Environment and Public Works Chairman Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY):
“Let’s be clear, attorney General Pruitt has answered more questions than any past EPA administrator nominee in recent memory.

“He answered a total of more than 1,200 questions.

“Pruitt has answered over 1,000 more questions than the EPA Administrator nominees from the incoming Obama, Bush, and Clinton administrations.

“The letter that the ranking member sent me dated January 30 highlighted what he believed were a lack of substantive answers from the nominee.

“To that, I would quote my colleague from Rhode Island, in 2013, when he stated during the McCarthy nomination business meeting that: ‘It is not the minority’s right to get nominees to agree with them in advance.’

“The minority may not like all of Attorney General Pruitt’s answers, but he’s given them answers.
And the questions Dems ask are not the typical yes or no question. Many demand decades of records as documentation. Sen. James Inhofe(R-OK) lists some Dem demands:
Senator Carper’s 119th question: “For each listed matter in which the State of Oklahoma has been a litigant or petitioner against the EPA, please provide any and all documents (including any and all written or electronic correspondence, audiotapes, electronic records, videotapes, photographs, telephone messages, voice mail messages, e-mails, facsimiles, daily agendas and calendars, information about meetings and/or discussions, whether in-person or over the telephone, agendas, minutes and a list of participants for those meetings and/or discussions, and transcripts and notes of any such meetings and/or discussions) from the date on which your office first began to prepare the litigation at hand, to the date of this letter, between you (or other employees of your office) and each representative of each non-governmental entity with whom you (or your office) communicated about the litigation.”
Senator Markey’s 61st question: For each year since 1995, (that’s 22 years of record) please provide information regarding the State of Oklahoma’s environmental enforcement efforts specifically: descriptions of each environmental enforcement action (including investigations and enforcement proceedings) initiated by the AG’s office, including the date the action was initiated, the name of the subject of the action, and the nature of the action and environmental violation that led thereto, the annual budget, the number of employees, AND descriptions of each environment enforcement action (including investigations and enforcement proceedings) that was closed, including a description of the resolution of the matter, whether a fine or penalty was levied (and if so the amount of such fine or penalty), whether non-monetary remedies were required (and if so, what), and whether a criminal prosecution was initiated in the matter (and if so what the resolution of the prosecution was).
Such excessive requests set a nearly impossible standard for confirmation and it's one that no Democrat nominee has EVER been asked to meet and one that no Democrat President would ever tolerate. It's a clear attempt to abuse the Senate's power of "advice and consent" and not one designed to provide clarity to the views of the nominee.

If Democrats continue to damage and isolate themselves from the mainstream of American society in an attempt to appease their unstable and totalitarian left wing base that's their right. But it's also the right of the GOP to take steps to override these efforts. And since Democrats did away with the filibuster of presidential appointments, the Senate GOP is fully within it's rights to take whatever steps are necessary to conduct the people's business. If Senate Democrats persist in this vendetta of blind, raw partisanship, GOP leaders will have no choice!
