Think Trump is Soft on Russians? Here's what Dem's Hero FDR Said About Stalin

What's worse, he acted on his reckless naivete and millions died or were imprisoned in Eastern Europe FOR DECADES!

Horror of the Cold War born at Yalta when FDR gave Stalin (who he described as a "Christian gentleman") everything he wanted.  By the time FDR found out he had been conned he died!
Forget what Trump said or didn't say to Putin in Helsinki. Even National Public Radio admits that Trump has taken a very hard line on Russia.  Unlike the previous eight years under Obama where we witnessed an unending catalog of appeasement. Even when it came to dealing with Russian meddling in U.S. elections, Obama's own people thought he was soft. One official admits they "choked" and other reports describe how Obama gave the "stand down" order rather than respond to Russian hacking.

But in the words of Samantha Bee, even a "feckless...." Obama wasn't the worst Democrat President where Russia concerned. Take the Dem's super hero, Franklin D. Roosevelt. Paul Kengor writing at American Spectator:
Senator John McCain described the Trump-Putin press conference in Helsinki as “one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.” “No prior president,” insisted McCain, “has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant.”
In fact, where to begin with that case example? My colleague Daniel Flynn yesterday raised the specter of FDR at Yalta — a perfect illustration, but we can go earlier. I could expend thousands of words laying out FDR’s jaw-droppingly awful assessments of Stalin across multiple meetings, conferences, and correspondence. Some of these were spouted directly by FDR to the man he fondly called “Uncle Joe,” whereas others were shared by FDR advisers who begged the president not to trust Stalin.

One such adviser was William Bullitt, FDR’s first ambassador to the USSR, who once had been gushingly pro-Bolshevik — until he spent a few years in the Soviet Union, where he was awakened by the death stench that was Stalinism. As he did with so many advisers, FDR rejected Bullitt’s warnings: “Bill, I just have a hunch that Stalin is not that kind of man…. I think that if I give him everything I possibly can and ask nothing from him in return, noblesse oblige, he won’t try to annex anything and will work with me for a world of democracy and peace.”
Bullitt tried to tell FDR that there was no “factual evidence” that Stalin was a good man. FDR, however, saw Stalin as a “kind” man, a gentleman, one he could work with to advance democracy and peace. The president shook off Bullitt: “It’s my responsibility, not yours.”

Sure was. And the course FDR took was a disastrous one that helped pave the way for the Cold War.

Stalin had so hoodwinked the iconic New Dealer that the president mused that the mass-murdering atheist had taught him, Churchill, and other leaders of the free world something about the “way in which a Christian gentleman should behave.” Yes, Stalin, a “Christian gentleman.” FDR actually said that.
Weeks after Yalta FDR realized he had been had and wrote to Stalin expressing his disappointment. Stalin must have laughed but was never able to make good on his horrendous mistake. He died 11 days later and the Cold War which threatened the peace of the entire world was born.

Nothing Trump said at Helsinki rises to the level of the delusions of FDR where Stalin was concerned. And it hardly matters since we all understand that the current hate Trump circus isn't about Russia, but another in a series of manufactured crises designed to weaken Trump. In fact, if anyone is doing the Russian's bidding it's the hate Trump media constantly seeking to divide America based on a pathology they contracted after Hillary lost the 2016 election. Want to stop the Russians? Easy. Support TRUMP!

Obama's Advice to Politicians: When You Lie, Just Double Down and Keep Doing It!

He's the pro!

Obama is in South Africa delivering the annual Mandela lecture in Johannesburg. His topic was politics in the world today. It was yet another of those sanctimonious "I'm so great" smugness that caused so much nausea over the eight years he was President. But this section was worth mentioning:
When it comes to doubling down on a lie he's the expert. His infamous promise that ObamaCare meant "if you like your plan or your doctor you can keep it/him" was Politifact's Lie of the Year in 2013. Perhaps it should have been lie of the decade since Obama didn't just double down on it but repeated it 36 times! Don't take my word for it:

Next time someone accuses Trump of lying, just remind them he doesn't hold a candle to Obama!

More Evidence in the Indictment of Obama and the Dems Treason on Russia

A Party of Treason.  Dems Conspired to Aide Russia

More evidence of Obama and the Democrats efforts to help Russia.

First, a reminder that this is Obama and the political party that:
  1. Stopped U.S. energy development wherever possible. This includes pipelines and offshore drilling as well as anti-fracking efforts which were subsidized by Russian funding.
  2. Weakened NATO by canceling missile defense agreements with Poland and Czech Republic at the demand of Putin.
  3. Obama caught on open mic declaring he would have "more flexibility" to help Putin after the 2012 presidential election.
  4. When invaded by Russia, Ukraine asked Obama for weapons. He sent socks.
And who can forget this gem from the 2012 presidential debate.

That was followed by a chorus of every top Democrat saying the same thing. They even turned it into a campaign ad:

Remind me again which American political party is soft on Russia? If you're going to start unrolling the rope for Trump you better order a whole bunch more!

Clear Evidence Obama GUILTY of TREASON

Applying the Trump standard to Obama!

So.... while Trump is still meeting with Putin in Helsinki the Trump haters had already declared that he was a traitor guilty of treason. Whether it's one of the rabid attack dogs writing at the New York Times or former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggesting Putin has something on Trump there's never a shred of solid evidence to back up their absurd and inflammatory charges.

Then there was this from former CIA Director John Brennan.  No doubt written well before the news conference had even begun:

Brennan's ridiculous rant is especially troubling since HE was Director of the CIA while the Russians were hacking Democrat computers with impunity and sending teams of Russian trolls to meddle in the U.S. election on social media.

Where were you Brennan when all this was going on? Not a peep!

Same for your boss Obama.

Here's Obama less than a month before the November 2016 presidential election insisting there was nothing to worry about:

OBAMA: "There is no serious person out there who would suggest that you could even rig America's elections, in part because they are so decentralized. There is no evidence that that has happened in the past, or that there are instances that that could happen this time,"
Then, by golly, Hillary loses and suddenly it's because of the Russians!

Presto change-o Obama is OUTRAGED and claims he told Putin to "cut it out" the previous September.  Too late!

OBAMA: “So in early September when I saw president Putin in China, I felt that the most effective way to ensure that that didn't happen was to talk to him directly and tell him to cut it out and there were going to be serious consequences if he didn't.
Aha!  Obama met with Putin.  TREASON!

Let's recap. For EIGHT YEARS Obama, Brennan and the rest of the hand wringers who are currently accusing Trump of treason were in charge and did NOTHING while all this is going on. Even when the Russians hacked the Democrat National Committee's computer network the Democrats refused to hand over the server to the FBI for top level forensic analysis. Former FBI Director James Comey describes "multiple requests" for the Democrats to hand over the server for examination. All were refused. You try doing that to the FBI when they ask for something!

There is absolutely NO CREDIBLE EVIDENCE to suggest that the Trump campaign had anything to do with Russia. There is however a MOUNTAIN OF EVIDENCE to show how the Obama Administration ignored Russian meddling, except when Obama told them to "cut it out." The consequences Obama warned about never appeared. Just like the Democrats server.

So, applying the current Trump standard, Obama is guilty of TREASON!

Trump in England: A Pictorial Review

His British hosts did not disappoint despite the best effort of the hate filled left!

At last year's Bastille Day parade in Paris President Trump took center stage as the guest of honor of French President Macron. It was then that the British were put on notice that they'd better step it up for an upcoming Trump visit. That visit was delayed several times but finally happened this week. It was worth the wait.

Even those Londoners who don't pay much attention to such things could tell something unique was happening. Foregoing much of the usual presidential motorcade Trump used a fleet of presidential helicopters to get around the region. The leftist hate Trump media that would have complained about the traffic mess resulting from the motorcade complained instead that the helicopters were frightening children. No, I won't link to those sites. But suffice to say that the city which survived the Nazi blitz would hardly be terrified by a few helicopters.

Here's the scene of the presidential fleet hovering over Parliament Hill:

The Trump's stayed at Winfield House, a beautiful residence set in 12 acres and part of Regent's Park. It's the official residence of the U.S. Ambassador Robert Wood Johnson. Johnson's wife Suzanne is a personal friend of First Lady Melania Trump going back to their days in New York City.

Below the two women share a moment at Winfield House shortly after the First Couple's arrival on Thursday:

Later that day the First Couple stepped out to the helicopter on their way to a gala dinner at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire:

What an entrance. What a view! Arrival by helicopter gave the Trump's an incredible view of the Palace and the English countryside:

Red carpet welcome at the Palace:

The President and First Lady were greeting by Prime Minister Teresa May and her husband Philip.  Video of the arrival ceremony is here.

On Friday, it was business with Prime Minister May greeting Trump at Chequers, the Prime Minister's official country residence in Buckinghamshire.  Like the previous meeting at Blenheim, there was a lot of hand holding between May and Trump:

May has had a bit of a rough patch lately with the mutiny of many in her party objecting to her weak plan to disentangle Britain from the maw of the European Union.  Trump hit on the sore point in a hard hitting interview with the Sun newspaper in which he seemed to suggest that a soft Brexit would make it more difficult to get a more favorable trade deal with the United States.

Trump walked some of that back on Friday at their joint press conference. Trump said "whatever you do is OK by us." Instead of frowns it was smiles all around:

PRESIDENT TRUMP [full transcript]:  "So I would say I give our relationship, in terms of grade, the highest level of special.  So we start off with special.  I would give our relationship with the UK — and now, especially after these two days with your Prime Minister, I would say the highest level of special.  Am I allowed to go higher than that?  I’m not sure.  (Laughter.)  But it’s the highest level of special.  They are very special people.  It’s a very special country.  And as I said, I have a relationship because my mother was born in Scotland.  So, very important."

Meeting with the Prime Minister and staff took place indoors:

Next, off to Windsor, by helicopter of course and tea with the Queen.

Meanwhile, First Lady Melania Trump wearing a dress by British designer Victoria Beckham stopped by the Royal Chelsea home for old age military pensioners. She was escorted by Prime Minister May's husband Philip. Melania joined in a game of lawn bowling with children from St George’s Church of England primary school.

The First Lady even got a "high five" from one of the Chelsea Pensioners:

Tea with the Queen

The highlight of the day had to be the welcome by Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.  A more relaxed venue than the high profile meeting at Chequers there was nonetheless duty for Trump to perform in inspecting the guard of honor:

Now that the ceremony and business of the President's trip to England is over he jets off to Scotland for some relaxation and preparation for his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.  Since he's spent the last days successfully urging NATO members to pay more for their own defense and chastising Germany for giving billions to Russia in exchange for energy that meeting should be interesting.  Remind me, who is Putin's puppet?

Anti-Trump protesters tie up London and make a mess. Churchill would be appalled!

On the same day Trump was trying to spare Londoners the traffic tie up of a presidential visit, the Trump haters were busy doing that themselves in central London.  Showing utter disregard for the special relationship cultivated by former Prime Minister Winston Churchill these Trump haters flew a balloon of a Trump baby in Parliament square next to Churchill's statue:

As Churchill left office after his second time as Prime Minister he strongly admonished those who followed him in office "never be separated from the Americans."  He would be disgusted by the show of disrespect on display today!
But like Trump haters in the United States, these left wing fascists are merely demonstrating their total irrelevance.  The "special relationship" between two great allies is alive and well despite the best efforts of the hate filled left!

"LIAR!" FBI Agent Claiming "Patriotism" in Trump Hate Denounced in Congressional Hearing

Why isn't this guy under indictment?

Explosive hearing today on Capitol Hill when former FBI Agent Peter Strozk was called to testify under oath before a joint hearing of the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees. Strozk claimed he had "no bias" in his work at the FBI, despite the huge volume of private messages he sent on his government phone to a co-worker and that he was only motivated by a "deep patriotism." Is that a new euphemism for the deep state?

House Republicans were not buying it. One after another they cited Strozk's texts and asked him to explain. Here are a few examples:

At one point Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) asks Strozk to read a few of these texts. Cue the video to the 2:40 mark:

So, this is the guy who has no bias? Meanwhile, Democrats at the hearing applauded Strozk. I wonder if the tables were turned they'd be so eager?

In this exchange with Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) Strozk continues to deny bias was the reason for his removal from the Special Counsel team investigating Trump:

There is some justification for this. The Mueller team is FILLED with Hillary loyalists and Trump haters. But none who have been so brazen as Strozk.

Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) spoke for many when laid it out for Strozk.

REP. GOHMERT: "He is really good. He is lying. He knows we know he is lying, and he could probably pass a polygraph. I've talked to FBI agents around the country, you've embarrassed them, you've embarrassed yourself, and I can't help but wonder when I see you sitting there with your little smirk. How many times did you look so innocent into your wife's eye and lie to her?"
Strozk was having an affair with FBI lawyer Lisa Page who shared the texts above on their government phones. If Strozk will lie to his wife, why should we believe him now?

Note Democrats in the video leaping to Strozk's defense. Also also suggesting he deserves a "purple heart" for his testimony. That smacks every wounded veteran in the face but it's what we have come to expect from this corrupt cabal.

We've only peeled back a few layers of this onion but the deeper we go the more corruption we find. Just when will we have a special prosecutor to put these criminals in jail where they belong?

Trump Contrasts Weak German NATO Spending w/ Trade Surplus and Dependence on Russian Energy

Why is U.S.  paying to defend a wealthy Germany that does not meet it's own agreed targets for NATO spending and gives billions to Russia?

In 2017 Germany posted it's highest budget surplus since reunification.  In the same year their trade surplus with the United States neared $64 billion. And while Germany has increased defense spending in accord with the 2014 NATO agreement, they remain far below the required 2% GDP target and appear willing only to reach 1.5% within the agreed 2024 time frame.

Why the focus on Germany?  Other NATO nations are also in arrears. But Germany's huge economy means that billions every year are not contributed to defense.  Many smaller countries exceed or fail to meet the same requirement but their relative contribution is minor.

Here's the chart. Note some progress since 2014:

Trump: "These countries have to step it up -- not over a 10 year period, they have to step it up immediately!"

In a Breakfast meeting with the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Trump was informed that his leadership on this issue meant that "last year was the biggest increase in defense spending across Europe and Canada in that generation." Not good enough!

Here's an excerpt of what Trump said at the breakfast:
PRESIDENT TRUMP: Just look at the chart. Take a look at the chart. It’s public. And many countries are not paying what they should. And, frankly, many countries owe us a tremendous amount of money for many years back, where they’re delinquent, as far as I’m concerned, because the United States has had to pay for them. So if you go back 10 or 20 years, you’ll just add it all up. It’s massive amounts of money is owed. The United States has paid and stepped up like nobody. This has gone on for decades, by the way. This has gone on for many Presidents. But no other President brought it up like I bring it up. So something has to be done, and the Secretary General has been working on it very hard.

This year, since our last meeting, commitments have been made for over $40 billion more money spent by other countries. So that’s a step, but it’s a very small step. It sounds like a lot of money, and it is. But it’s a very small amount of money relative to what they owe and to what they should be paying. And it’s an unfair burden on the United States.
Well, I have to say, I think it’s very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where you’re supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia. So we’re protecting Germany. We’re protecting France. We’re protecting all of these countries. And then numerous of the countries go out and make a pipeline deal with Russia, where they’re paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russia.
It should have never been allowed to have happened. But Germany is totally controlled by Russia, because they will be getting from 60 to 70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline. And you tell me if that’s appropriate, because I think it’s not, and I think it’s a very bad thing for NATO and I don’t think it should have happened. And I think we have to talk to Germany about it.

On top of that, Germany is just paying a little bit over 1 percent, whereas the United States, in actual numbers, is paying 4.2 percent of a much larger GDP. So I think that’s inappropriate also. You know, we’re protecting Germany, we’re protecting France. We’re protecting everybody. And yet we’re paying a lot of money to protect.

Now, this has been going on for decades. This has been brought up by other presidents. But other presidents never did anything about it because I don’t think they understood it or they just didn’t want to get involved.

But I have to bring it up, because I think it’s very unfair to our country. It’s very unfair to our taxpayer. And I think that these countries have to step it up not over a 10-year period; they have to step it up immediately. Germany is a rich country. They talk about they’re going to increase it a tiny bit by 2030. Well, they could increase it immediately tomorrow and have no problem. I don’t think it’s fair to the United States.
So we have to talk about the billions and billions of dollars that’s being paid to the country that we’re supposed to be protecting you against. You know, everybody is talking about it all over the world. They’ll say, well, wait a minute, we’re supposed to be protecting you from Russia, but why are you paying billions of dollars to Russia for energy? Why are countries in NATO, namely Germany, having a large percentage of their energy needs paid to Russia and taken care of by Russia?
I think trade is wonderful. I think energy is a whole different story. I think energy is a much different story than normal trade. And you have a country like Poland that won’t accept the gas. You take a look at some of the countries — they won’t accept it, because they don’t want to be captive to Russia. But Germany, as far as I’m concerned, is captive to Russia, because it’s getting so much of its energy from Russia. So we’re supposed to protect Germany, but they’re getting their energy from Russia. Explain that. And it can’t be explained — you know that.
Later, Trump and Merkel played nice while the media keeps trying to spin conflict. Either way, Merkel got the message.   No more Mr. Nice Guy, Trump is determined to take on trade and weak NATO spending.  His efforts have already yielded results but it's not enough!

UPDATE: Trump gets results!  NATO members agree to increase spending.

Statement by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the close of the meeting in Brussels:
STOLTENBERG: I told you earlier this week that I expected frank discussions on burden-sharing.
And that’s exactly what we had.

That is what we do among friends and Allies.

All Allies have heard President Trump’s message loud and clear.
We understand that this American president is very serious about defence spending.
And this is having a clear impact.

After years of decline, when Allies were cutting billions,
now they are adding billions.
Before, the trend was down.
Now, the trend is up.
In fact, since President Trump took office, European Allies and Canada have added an additional 41 billion dollars to their defence spending.

And all Allies have committed to raise this number substantially.
So we are stepping up as never before.

Allowing US spending to go down.

There is a new sense of urgency due to President Trump’s strong leadership on defence spending.

Today, all Allies agreed to redouble their efforts.
And this will make NATO stronger.

Trump Chooses Moderate Conservative Justice for Court. Left Goes Bonkers Anyway

President chooses most qualified nominee with broadest appeal.  Not that it matters to Dems!

President Trump introduces Brett Kavanaugh and family to East Room of the White House as
he nominates Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: I’ve often heard that, other than matters of war and peace, this is the most important decision a President will make. The Supreme Court is entrusted with the safeguarding of the crown jewel of our Republic, the Constitution of the United States.
In keeping with President Reagan’s legacy, I do not ask about a nominee’s personal opinions. What matters is not a judge’s political views, but whether they can set aside those views to do what the law and the Constitution require. I am pleased to say that I have found, without doubt, such a person.

Tonight, it is my honor and privilege to announce that I will nominate Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.

Judge Kavanaugh has impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications, and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law.

A graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School, Judge Kavanaugh currently teaches at Harvard, Yale, and Georgetown.

Throughout legal circles, he is considered a judge’s judge — a true thought leader among his peers.

He is a brilliant jurist, with a clear and effective writing style, universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time. And just like Justice Gorsuch, he excelled as a clerk for Justice Kennedy. That’s great. Thank you. (Applause.)

Judge Kavanaugh has devoted his life to public service. For the last 12 years, he has served as a judge on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals — with great distinction — authoring over 300 opinions, which have been widely admired for their skill, insight, and rigorous adherence to the law.

Among those opinions are more than a dozen that the Supreme Court has adopted as the law of the land.

Beyond his great renown as a judge, he is active in his community. He coaches CYO Basketball, serves meals to needy families, and — having learned from his mom who was a schoolteacher in D.C. — tutors children at local elementary schools.

There is no one in America more qualified for this position, and no one more deserving.
In his remarks following Trump Kavanaugh described how his mother, a school teacher, went on to become a lawyer, a prosecutor and a judge. Kavanaugh said "The President introduced me tonight as Judge Kavanaugh. But to me that title will always belong to my mom."

Judge Kavanaugh also worked in the Bush White House and was appointed as a federal judge by President Bush. Few have ever accused Bush of nominating overly conservative judges. Kavanaugh is certainly a more moderate choice than others Trump had considered. He was also selected as one who, because of his exceptional qualifications should be easy to confirm. Richard Wolfe, at USA Today writes "Brett Michael Kavanaugh may be the most qualified Supreme Court nominee in generations. "

Senate and House Republicans quickly lined up to show their support for the President's decision with words of high praise for Kavanaugh.

Predictably, the hatemongers on the left wasted no time in condemning Trump's pick. But their unrelenting campaign of blind hate makes them increasingly irrelevant to the hearts and minds of real America.

Left's "Boy who cried wolf" hysteria growing tiresome

As a duly elected President of the United States Trump has the constitutional power to nominate justices to the U.S. Supreme Court when vacancies occur.  But since Trump was elected, Democrats have discarded all pretense of deference to the U.S. Constitution or the democratic process. Like the classic Marx Brother's routine, If Trump is for it, they're against it.

Once again we see that political power is the only principle the left cares about. Let's face it: Trump could nominate Mother Teresa and the left would say she was a "dangerous extremist" and threat to democracy.  Hate, fear and hysteria is all they have and they make money selling that to their millions of followers who, like their leaders, have no respect for elections. Unless they win.

Trump won in 2016 in no small part because he promised to nominate justices that would decide cases with the same intellectually rigorous and objective standard exemplified by the late Justice Antonin Scalia.  A justice who doesn't reinvent the U.S. Constitution or make law but who understands the role of the court is to make sure the law is enforced as written within the constitutional framework.

As Obama once said, "elections have consequences" and the left will just have to accept it.  Meanwhile, as we approach the fall mid term congressional election they will have an opportunity to be heard. Thus far, they're making fools of themselves!

Children Deprived of Visit to Statue of Liberty on July 4th by Left Wing Protester

Once again, the left puts THEIR right to protest ahead of the rights of the rest of us!

Going back to my days studying political philosophy I remember the discussion on liberty. Basically, I have the freedom to do whatever I want as long as my exercise of freedom does not infringe on the rights of others. Too bad left wingers skipped that class.

On July 4th a Congolese immigrant scaled the base of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor causing the monument to be evacuated. 4,000 visitors were forced to leave and thousands more denied entry because this individual put her right to protest above the rights of others. Think of all the children who looked forward to a special visit to Liberty Island, perhaps coming from far away to see the statue and were denied. Too bad no photographer was on hand to capture images of crying children.

And when cops showed up to try and help her down the protester threatened to push them off! How's that for gratitude. Too soon to say whether she caused any damage to the very thin skin of copper which is the only covering for the statue.

A spokesman for the National Park Service had this to say:
"I feel really sorry for those visitors today" who had to leave or couldn't come, spokesman Jerry Willis said. "People have the right to speak out. I don't think they have the right to co-opt the Statue of Liberty to do it."
Jim Geraghty at National Review went further:
In order to defend liberty, Okoumou risked damaging the Statute of Liberty; to help her country, she concluded she had to disrupt the Fourth of July events at an iconic national park. To demonstrate her commitment to justice, she threatened to push the ladder of law-enforcement officers. To fight back against the stereotype that immigrants are dangerous and have no respect for the law, the Congolese immigrant did something dangerous and against the law.
Of course left wingers putting their rights ahead of those of others is nothing new. Think of the anti-Trump protesters who shut down highways or bridges depriving working people the ability to get to work or home. They demand their right to free speech means they can shut down your speech, using violence if necessary.

Tell me again who the REAL Nazis are!

Dems Need Mental Health Intervention After Hate Filled Meltdown After Supreme Court Vacancy

They have announced that no matter who Trump nominates they will oppose with the most extreme rhetoric imaginable!

The level of dumb, even dangerous hate from the American left is reaching a new low with announcement that Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring from the U.S. Supreme Court. Dems dusted off the same vile rhetoric they used before Trump nominated Gorsuch then doubled down on nasty. Once again, they are showing how totally isolated they are from Real America.

Ramping up the campaign of hate on Twitter, Democrats continue to push the envelope further towards incitement to violence. From a writer at the Comedy Central network this stands out. It's a reference to the assassinations of President Kennedy and his brother Robert suggesting Justice Kennedy would be a better target.  Remember, these the are guys who lecture US on civility:

While the tweet has been taken down the message has been received. Does this man still have his job? Comedian Roseanne Barr was fired from a hit TV show for less.

Once again, Democrats are displaying what Hillary Clinton called the "horrifying" prospect of undermining democracy and the U.S. Constitution by refusing to accept that Trump has the legitimate power to appoint nominees to the Supreme Court.

Prior to Trump's first nomination to the court Democrats had pre-prepared talking points describing any nominee as "extreme and out of the mainstream." They even had signs printed up to "OPPOSE _______" providing blue pens to fill in the name when the announcement of Neil Gorsuch was made. It didn't matter what Gorsuch's qualifications were.

Does that sound like principled opposition to you?

I'm reminded of the classic Marx Brother's song from the 1932 film Horsefeathers:

But there's nothing funny about Democrat's blind hate. We've seen how it leads to violence too many times. Will the Democrat strategist who tweeted #HuntRepublicanCongressmen do the same for Trump's eventual nominee?

And how is that that guy still has his job? And why didn't Twitter find THAT to be a violation of their standards???

What Dems refuse to recognize is that the more hate filled and angry they get the stronger Trump becomes. Real America won't be deceived by the "sky is falling" drumbeat from a coterie of left wing fascist haters.

VINDICATION: U.S. Supreme Court Upholds President Trump's Constitutional Power to Control Immigration

Left wing political judge shopping was always a failing course. Too bad the left isn't interested in a real solution!

Anyone with half a brain knew that the attempt to derail Trump's restrictions on immigration from a handful of Muslim and other countries was entirely appropriate and within the clear constitutional powers of his office. The left went judge shopping and attempted to derail a legitimate immigration policy by ignoring the Constitution and making up law. They claimed that Trump's campaign statements about Muslims meant his policy was biased but to do so, they ignored the actual policy. Trump's order was NOT a Muslim ban and did not include all Muslim majority countries. And if Presidents are to be held accountable for their campaign rhetoric then ObamaCare surely would be overturned for the big lie "if you like your plan you can keep it."

The majority on the court ruled 5-4 that the travel ban "The President has lawfully exercised the broad discretion granted to him " and "is squarely within the scope of Presidential authority." The decision went on to describe that existing law shows "deference to the President in every clause. It entrusts to the President the decisions whether and when to suspend entry, whose entry to suspend, for how long, and on what conditions. It thus vests the President with “ample power” to impose entry restrictions."

Continuing: "The admission and exclusion of foreign nationals is a “fundamental sovereign attribute exercised by the Government’s political departments largely immune from judicial control."

Boom! Smack that!

Naturally, Trump was pleased:

Will Trump hating hysterics now expand their campaign of harassment and threats of violence to Supreme Court judges? Why not? They are left wing fascists!

Dem's "Divinity?" Last Moments of Life as 15 Year Boy Murdered by Immigrant Gangs in the Bronx

Are these the kind of people Democrats want to defend?

President Trump got in a lot of trouble with weak on the immigration Democrats when he called MS-13 gang members "animals" for the brutal way they murder their victims, many of them children. Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admonished Trump and insisted that even these gang banger monsters had the "spark of divinity, the dignity and worth of every person."

Here she is:
Is this what she meant? A Dominican gang, just as bad as MS-13 murdered an innocent 15 year old boy in the Bronx, New York this past week:

Here is Lesandro Guzman-Feliz lying on the street a short distance away covered in blood as passersby try to assist him:

Why is it important to see these videos? Because Democrats want to talk about illegal immigrants only as "dreamers" looking to make a better world. The reality is that many are not and Democrats don't care.

Here is Leasandro's mother. Like so many other mothers she has been permanently separated from her son never to return. Why isn't she on the cover of Time Magazine?

Let's look at Lesandro one more time and imagine what dreams he had for a better life.

How would you describe the people who robbed Leasandro of that dream? Animals is too good a word. Why are Dems like Nancy Pelosi and others never asked about the victims of illegal immigrant gangs? What about the "divinity and dignity" of Lesandro? Pelosi doesn't give a damn!

Accountability? Dems Incite Violence Towards Women and Children Including Rape, Paedophilia and Murder.

Apparently it's ok as long as you hate Trump!

Comedian Roseanne Barr was fired from her hit TV show after one mildly racist tweet.  Dems painted the entire GOP as racist based on that one tweet.

Days later, Dem TV celeb Samantha Bee attacked Trump's daughter Ivanka as a "feckless cunt."  Shortly after she was given a prestigious award for "inspiring" and "advanding social change."

So much for the change.  No doubt this was the inspiration has been actor Peter Fonda looked to as a model:

Fonda has a new movie coming out.  SONY has announced it will not be canceled. No doubt Fonda is angling for an Oscar.  Imagine if ANY Republican had said anything even remotely similar about children and women!

Fonda's followers are already acting on his advice to "scare children and make them worry" by publishing a list of ICE Agents online.

Responding to Fonda's hate was a tweet from Donald Trump Junior to which a Canadian TV writer responded with a further threat:

Trump with granddaughter Chloe.
Like Fonda, Dassault hasn't been fired either. When will he be getting an award?

Meanwhile, another Dem, Laurence Key, called the office of his Congressman Brian Mast(R-FL) and said: "If you’re going to separate kids at the border, I’m going to kill his kids." Key, a Democrat activist, was described by friends as a "gentle soul." He also supports Planned Parenthood so killing children is nothing new to him. No doubt he'd like an award too. The difference between Key and Fonda is that Key is in a jail cell where he belongs.

We've already seen examples of left wing hate turning to violence when Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson attempted to massacre GOP Congressmen at baseball practice or the man who attempted murder at the Family Research Council. Both motivated by the daily diet of hate they read and hear on liberal media and at the Southern Poverty Law Center which ironically has assigned to root out hate on the internet!

Rape women, kill children, pedophilia?  Apparently it's OK as long as you direct your pathology at Trump and his supporters. Heck, you might even get an award!

Massive Trump Rally in Minnesota

If Trump manages to peel away Minnesota Dems can kiss any chance in 2020 GOOD BYE!

The expected crowd was so large they had to move the rally to a larger arena.  Good thing they did. Trump packed the larger Amsoil Arena to the rafters Wednesday night.

Watch video of the event here.

Minnesota is a mostly red state except for Minneapolis/St. Paul and a few outlying areas. Hillary won the state by less than 45,000 votes in 2016.  If events like this are any indicator, the enthusiasm among Trump supporters may pull the state all the way to the right in 2020!

Build the Border Wall and STOP Separation of Children from Illegal Alien Parents

For all the manufactured hysteria about separated children why no outrage from Democrats about parents sending their children to cross the border illegally?

Forgive the rant, but I'm currently on travels in south Florida, heart of the illegal immigration debate.  Manufactured hysteria over immigration isn't limited to south Florida.  Democrats found tape of a little girl screaming for her parents as they were taken away after entering the country illegally.  It's another phony bid to try and smear President Trump for enforcing immigration law and like most of the Dems "sky is falling" hysteria it will soon backfire as more Americans ask why these people are being encouraged to enter in the first place.

More to the point, consider this from Newsweek:

NEWSWEEK:In fiscal year 2013, under the Barack Obama administration, the HHS Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) had as many as 25,000 unaccompanied children in its care across 80 shelters, according to a July 2014 article in Mother Jones.
At this point in one of these manufactured media firestorms (they follow a predictable pattern) it will be hard to get the facts over the noise of talking heads screaming about children but consider this from Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen:
NIELSEN: The vast majority, vast, vast majority of children who are in the care of HHS now — 10,000 of the 12,000 — were sent here alone by their parents. That’s when they were separated. Ten thousand of those currently in custody were sent by their parents with strangers to undertake a completely dangerous and deadly travel alone. We now care for them. We have high standards. We give them meals. We give them education. We give them medical care. There is videos. There’s TVs.
If Democrats really cared about children they would put a stop to the illegal immigration that is separating families. But Democrats oppose Trump plans to build the border wall and strengthen border security. Democrats seek to profit from a wave of illegals that will then be exploited for political purposes now and registered to vote at the earliest opportunity.

And for all the trauma that the children are suffering what about the trauma of families torn apart by the violence of MS-13 gang members who are also flooding across the border? House Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi insists these murderous monsters possess a "spark of divinity, the dignity and worth "

Not to mention how the children of illegals are overwhelming public schools and social welfare and health programs. That puts American children at risk. Once again, Democrats care illegals than they do American children!

Trump Referendum in GOP Congressional Primary in Mike's America District. TRUMP WON!

If Dems want to run against Trump in the fall midterm election be my guest!

Here at Mike's America we had a primary election on Tuesday. I cast my vote for Katie Arrington to replace Rep. Mark Sanford as my Representative in Congress. I never expected Arrington to win. Sanford was massively funded and had excellent name identification. But Sanford did one thing that made all those advantages irrelevant. He bashed President Trump one too many times. We can all forgive some jabs at Trump before he was the GOP presidential nominee, but after that, if you don't support Trump you may be held accountable to primary voters. This is a warning to all Republicans who serve in conservative districts.

Arrington will win the November election and I welcome her as my new representative!

Draining the swamp one election at a time!

Trump Triumph: Kim Praises Trump as World Witnesses Smiles, Handshakes and a Signed Commitment for North Korea to Denuclearlize

Peace through strength triumphs again with fundamental shift in relations between the U.S. and North Korea offering the best chance for peace!

Months of diplomatic, military and Trumpian tweet pressure beared the first fruit in Singapore on Tuesday.  At a news conference later President Trump cited Otto Warmbier, the young American tortured and left in a coma by North Korea, as the trigger point that initiated what led to today's advance.

Trump also alluded to how this process might be replicated with Iran. Fingers crossed!

President Trump holds a copy of the signed agreement. Contents of the document.
Convinced that the establishment of new U.S.-DPRK relations will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and of the world, and recognizing that mutual confidence building can promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un state the following:

1.The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S.-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.

2.The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.

3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

4. The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.

President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America and Chairman Kim Jong Un of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea have committed to cooperate for the development of new U.S.-DPRK relations and for the promotion of peace, prosperity, and security of the Korean Peninsula and of the world.

Chairman Kim pats Trump on the back as the two exit the signing ceremony.

During the signing ceremony Chairman Kim praised Trump:
KIM JONG UN: Today we had a historic meeting and decided to leave the past behind and we are about to sign a historic document. The world will see a major change. I would like to express my gratitude to President Trump to make this meeting happen. Thank you.

During the break for lunch Kim Jong Un is seen smiling at National Security Advisor John Bolton. North Korea had been sharply critical of Bolton but nothing but smiles today.

In South Korea commuters at Seoul subway station applauded as they watched on television.

South Korea's President President Moon Jae-in smiles broadly as he watches the summit on television.

As earthshaking as this summit is, it's just the beginning of a very long and challenging process.  But there is nothing but good news from today's developments!

Trump Aide: "A Special Place in Hell" for Canada's PM Justin Trudeau. But, Trump Got the Photo at G-7 He Wanted

G-7 allies have been robbing the U.S. piggy bank!
Trump not so fond of Canada's Trudeau. Must be thinking, where is France's President Macron?
Summits of the world's leading industrial and democratic nations known as the G-7 are usually sedate affairs where differences are papered over with diplomatic language.  Instead of describing angry debates, we're used to hearing that there was a "frank exchange of views."  All that diplomatic nicety went out the window in Canada this weekend.

News reports suggest Trump didn't even want to go to Canada for the summit. He's focused on the big prize in Singapore and the summit with North Korea. But perhaps he felt he needed to make an appearance since the issue of trade was on the front burner after the U.S. announced new tariffs to counter existing trade barriers by our allies.

Take a look at this if you want to know why Trump is upset about the trade imbalance:
So, Trump goes to Canada and let's just say there was a extremely frank exchange of views. Still, Trump wasn't angry. He departed early for Singapore and as he left made the following remarks:
PRESIDENT TRUMP: I will say, it was not contentious. What was strong was the language that this cannot go on. But the relationships are very good, whether it be President Macron or with Justin. We had — Justin did a really good job. I think the relationships were outstanding.

But because of the fact that the United States leaders of the past didn’t do a good job on trade — and again, I’m not blaming countries; I’m blaming our people that represented our past. It’s got to change. It’s going to change. I mean, it’s not a question of “I hope it changes.” It’s going to change, a hundred percent. And tariffs are going to come way down, because people cannot continue to do that. We’re like the piggybank that everybody is robbing. And that ends.
Trump went on to remind our trading partners that they depend on trade with the United States much more than we do with them. The U.S. has the largest economy in the world and any tariffs they might apply to the U.S. will likely backfire.

Trump's Favorite Photo

G-6 dependence on U.S. trade isn't news to the leaders assembled in Canada. They understand their economic lifeblood is directly tied to access to U.S. markets. German Chancellor Angela Merkel posted the following photo on her Instagram account. Like the other leaders posing for domestic political consumption she may think this shows her standing up to Trump. Meanwhile, which world leader is sitting down and taking it easy?

Putting her cards on the table German Chancellor Merkel has a pair of 2's. 
What do you bet German Chancellor Merkel longs for the time President George W. Bush gave her a surprise massage at a previous summit?

Trump was prepared to put it all behind him and continue negotiations as his Statement above, then the following tweet attest:
Trudeau: Back Stabber. Special Place in Hell

Apparently Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wasn't satisfied with Trump's attempt to gloss over differences and went on the attack. He told a news conference that as Canadians "we will not be pushed around." His comments inflamed Trump and his aides. Larry Kudlow, Director of the United States National Economic Council, appeared on CNN's State of the Union program calling Trudeau's remarks a "betrayal" while adding:
KUDLOW: he holds a press conference, and he said the U.S. is insulting. He said that Canada has to stand up for itself. He says that we are the problem with tariffs.

Well, the infactual, the non-factual part of this was, they have enormous tariffs. I mean, they have tariffs on certain dairy and food products of 290, 295 percent. He was polarizing. I mean, here's the thing. I mean, he really kind of stabbed us in the back. He really, actually -- you know what? He did a great disservice to the whole G7.
You just don't behave that way, OK? It is a betrayal, OK? He is essentially double-crossing -- not just double crossing President Trump, but the other members of the G7, who were working together and pulling together this communique.

You know, you never get everything you want. There are compromises along the way. President Trump played that process in good faith.

So, I ask you, he gets up in the airplane and leaves. And then Trudeau starts blasting him in a domestic news conference? I'm sorry. It is a betrayal. That is a double-cross.
President Trump's Assistant for Trade Peter Navarro was equally displeased:
Finally, Trump refuses to sign the joint communique which had been in the works until Trudeau blew it up:
Naturally, the usual suspects in the left wing media are blaming Trump for the contretemps but Trump's positive statements upon leaving the summit make that false charge just more of the fake news we have come to expect.

Negotiating Tactics?

Clearly the G-6 are not used to having a President of the United States take and maintain a hard line on trade. Poor dears. Trump's insistence in standing up for America seems to have upset them. Meanwhile, Trump points out NATO allies like Germany are still not paying the fair share THEY agreed to make in contribution to their own defense.

Meanwhile, Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr. shared a photo of Obama at a previous G-7 summit yukking it up and having a fine old time at the expense of America's workers. The image asks which side do you want to be on? America first or America last?

It's past time an American President broke some of the crockery at these meetings and said "no more." It may not be a pretty sight, but it's the only way to get the G-6 to understand there's a new Sheriff in town. The quicker the G-6 get done shouting the sooner we can work out a more equitable trading arrangement!

UPDATE:  The Photo Merkel did NOT Share

Moments from the now famous photo above, another photo shows everyone all smiles. More here.

Lock Him Up! All Roads in Trump Spygate Lead to Obama

Put the former President under oath and hold him accountable to the law with the same scrutiny that Democrats demand of Trump!

If Obama did everything "by the book" he surely won't mind being subjected to the same scrutiny as Trump. Right?
A curious thing happened just moments after Donald Trump was sworn into office as the 45th President of the United States. The Obama Administration's constitutional power ended precisely at noon on Friday, January 20th 2017 as Trump took the oath of office. Yet Obama's National Security Adviser Susan Rice was still at her desk and sent a very unusual email to herself.

Rice, best known for her infamous repeated lie that the Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans was caused by a You Tube video, sent the unusual email to herself using the White House email system at 12:15 PM. A full 15 minutes after the Obama Administration's authority had expired.  That's curious enough, but the content of the note even more so.

The email memorialized a meeting that was held in the Oval Office 15 days earlier between Obama and key players in the Trump-Russia affair. Here's the note:

This meeting came two days after then Attorney General Loretta Lynch had signed an order making it possible for the National Security Agency to share raw surveillance information on Americans with 16 other intelligence agencies.

Rice's need to document that Obama wanted everything done "by the book" and insisting he wasn't "instructing or initiating" any action towards Trump seems not only odd but self serving. Especially since the email also documents the Obama team reluctance to share information regarding the Russia probe with Trump.

The meeting with Trump happened the day after this White House meeting and we now know that FBI Director Comey did as he was instructed and did not share the full details about the provenance of the dossier, especially the key tidbit that it was paid for by Hillary Clinton's campaign and was totally unverified. Instead Comey focused on the sensational fiction that Trump hired prostitutes in a Moscow hotel to pee on the bed once slept on by Obama. After that meeting with Trump the Steele dossier was leaked and the entire phony Trump-Russia storyline was born.

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy has done a great job exploring the the claim of Susan Rice to do it "by the book:"
Consequently, Rice’s “by the book” bunkum is transparent: Obama officials claimed to adhere to a book that forbade consultations between political leaders and investigators. But here they were consulting. So Rice tried to cover the tracks in her email: She revises history such that the consultation morphs into a mere friendly reminder that Obama wanted everything done by the book. He was certainly “not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective,” no siree.

We might counter that people who have lived “by the book” for eight years would not have to remind each other to go “by the book.” It would go without saying.
FBI Agent: "The White House is Running This"... Obama "Wants to Know Everything"

The Rice claim that Obama wasn't "initiating or instructing anything" in this affair is debunked by the secret texts top FBI official Peter Strzok sent to his  mistress FBI Lawyer Lisa Page in which he suggested "The White House is running this."Another text between the pair described how Obama “wants to know everything we’re doing.”

Senators Charles Grassley(R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) both chairmen of Senate committees with oversight on these matters sent a letter to Rice with a number of very specific questions about the email. The only response received was a letter from Rice's attorney which dodged specifics and attempted to explain the unusual timing of the email by suggesting Rice was just  busy earlier.  Yeah. right!

If Obama and his top officials have nothing to hide wouldn't they be the first to demand a special prosecutor be appointed to prove their innocence?  Let's put Obama under oath and apply the same scrutiny to him and his aides that is currently being directed atTrump. If they've done nothing wrong they would surely agree right?
