President Trump Meets and Surprises Jim Jordan in Ohio
by sundance
{ } ~ Representative Jim Jordan is the no-nonsense personification of the ‘git-r-done’ spirit that runs through the scruffy and beloved heart of MAGA... An authentic guiding spirit that cannot be faked, scripted or duplicated.  Ya’ either have it…. or ya’ don’t; it’s that simple. In another example for the keen political instincts of President Trump; he can tell from the automatic vibe that jumped in the air when he said the name “Jim Jordan”; the President calls Jordan to the stage…. and another authentic MAGA moment happens spontaneously. Remember, Jim Jordan said in an interview just a few weeks ago that he had never met President Trump, and had never personally talked to him. However, when POTUS Trump senses the crowds response to the words “Jim Jordan” he immediately identifies the importance and value...
North Korea demands sanctions
relief before any nuclear concessions
by Joel Gehrke
{ } ~ Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is undermining the prospects for successful negotiations to dismantle North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s nuclear weapons program... a regime diplomat alleged Saturday. North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho denounced U.S. calls for the world to maintain sanctions pressure — a mainstay of Pompeo’s diplomacy — as being inconsistent with President Trump’s position on the talks. Likewise, he maintained that the U.S. hasn’t responded appropriately to North Korea's “moratorium on nuclear tests and rocket launch tests” and apparent step to dismantle a missile factory. “The United States, instead of responding to these measures, is raising its voice louder for maintaining the sanctions against North Korea and showing the attitude to retreat even from declaring the end of the war, a very basic and primary step for providing peace on the Korean peninsula,” Ri said at the ASEAN Regional Forum, per Channel News Asia. Ri uncorked that rebuke shortly after a friendly public handshake with Pompeo, who had attended the forum but departed for Indonesia...
Republicans Want State Road Funds Back From liar-nObama
{ } ~ Illinois Republicans want to take back state road money that’s been dedicated in the budget for former President Barack liar-nObama  presidential center in Chicago... State Rep. David McSweeney has filed legislation that would revoke the $180 million in state tax dollars directed to prepare the roads for liar-nObama’s presidential building. The money was part of the larger budget passed in June that spends more than the state ever has, but still shorted items like grants for veterans. Construction of the project was intended to be funded by private donations. In a release announcing the funding, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said it “demonstrates Illinois’ commitment to honoring the legacy of Chicago’s favorite son and daughter.” Instead of Chicago, the money would be re-allocated to Schaumburg, Dixon, Ottawa, Peoria, Paris, Springfield, Effingham, Collinsville, and Carbondale should McSweeney’s bill become law...
"Be Cursed Forever": Extremist Persecution
of Christians, January 2018
by Raymond Ibrahim
{ } ~ Three masked gunmen targeted and killed Bassem Attallah, a Christian man, 27, after identifying him as a Christian by the cross tattoo on his wrist... According to his older brother, Osama, 38, the siblings and a Muslim colleague, Muhammad, were walking home after work when three armed men, aged between 23 and 25 stopped them. "We thought they were policemen because they weren't masked... They were wearing black jackets," Osama recalled. "They approached us and asked Bassem to show them the wrist of his right hand, and when they saw the tattoo of the cross, they asked him: 'Are you Christian?' Bassem answered 'Yes, I am Christian,' and repeated that again in a loud voice." The men then asked Muhammad his name and to show them his wrist. They saw no cross and allowed him to leave. On learning Osama's name, which is popular among Muslims, and not seeing any cross tattoos on his wrist, they also allowed him to leave. "And then they shot Bassem in the head. I could not believe what happened to my brother. He fell on the ground in front of me and I was unable to do anything.... We lost a person dear to our hearts. My brother Bassem was a very good and kind man. He had a strong relationship with God. He was always reading in the Bible, praying and going to the church. He was loved by all people," said his grieving brother. The murder took place in Al-Arish, Sinai, which in recent years has been the scene of many attacks on Christians—including the murder of two priests and the mass upheaval of Christian villages. Separately, on New Year's Day, which the Muslim calendar does not recognize or celebrate, two Christian brothers were gunned down in public by a masked man on a motorcycle. While they died en route to a hospital, the murderer escaped. At the time of the attack, they were near Christian friend's store, which sold liquor. Coptic-owned stores that sell liquor have been targeted by those who consider alcohol haram, or forbidden by Islam. Almost one year to the day, on January 3, 2017, a Muslim man sneaked up behind a Christian shop owner in Egypt and slit his throat for selling alcohol...
Violent Communist Antifa Attacks Patriot Prayer, Police
In Portland – Throw Feces And Urine At Marchers 
by Terresa Monroe-Hamilton
{ } ~ As I reported last week, Antifa was practicing getting their violence on in Portland, Oregon with the Patriot Prayer group... They did not disappoint. The police labeled it a ‘civil disturbance’ yesterday. It was a bloody riot. Frankly, I saw a ton of weapons and a number of people who got hurt during the melee. Antifa showed up in downtown Portland before the Patriot Prayer march. They were throwing projectiles at the police, including rocks and bottles, and feces and urine at marchers. Eventually, the police used flash-bang grenades on them. As I looked through the media this morning, predictably they spun it as Patriot Prayer’s fault and painted all of them as the KKK and Nazis. More fake news and lies. Although I saw alarming weapons from both sides, those holding Nazi paraphernalia and KKK items looked to be Antifa trying to brand Patriot Prayer as such. Among the weapons seized were knives, clubs, pepper spray, eggs, rocks etc. The police were there enforce this time, trying to keep a lid on fights between Antifa and Patriot Prayer. They didn’t stop the clashes but eventually dispersed the marchers. Police patrolled the streets at midday advising demonstrators to “get out.” Four people were arrested during the protests, the Portland Police Bureau said in a statement Saturday night. Officers also seized “multiple weapons throughout the day,” police said. A reporter for The Oregonian/OregonLive was bloodied when he was struck by a projectile, The Associated Press reported. Eder Campuzano said later on Twitter that he was “okay.”...


dummycrats-Democratic' Socialism: Be Careful What You Wish For 
by Michael Swartz:  Once it became apparent that the 2016 election results were real and people came out of their safe spaces to ponder their cruel fate, the attention of the left-wing quickly turned to a certain date: Nov. 6, 2018. They truly believed that would be the day America reacted to the horrible mistake of electing Donald Trump, restoring the dummycrats-Democrat Party to its rightful place as our governing agent. Surely Americans would be chomping at the bit to vote in a “blue wave” to wipe out GOP majorities in the House and Senate and (perhaps literally) handcuff Trump for the last few months of his term.

             But a strange thing happened on our way to this meeting with destiny: Trump and congressional Republicans have succeeded in kick-starting an economy that was running in low gear over the previous eight years thanks to a “jobless recovery.” While it’s still possibledummycrats-Democrats will make significant inroads into the GOP advantage, there’s no guarantee that either the House or Senate will flip back to dummycrats-Democrat control.
               Meanwhile, a battle begun in 2016 and barely tempered during liar-Hillary Clinton’s campaign now rages for the very soul of the dummycrats-Democrat Party. As evidence, look no further than your local college campus. Chances are you will find this is the age of thedummycrats-democratic socialist.
               In their desperation — perhaps brought on by Trump Derangement Syndrome — dummycrats-Democrat voters, in particular the Millennial set, have been showing up at primaries ready to elect the person who promises the most free stuff regardless of relevant experience. Two cases in point happened on the same June 26 primary day: First, dummycrats-Democrat voters in Maryland eschewed several more traditional candidates, such as the county executive of the state’s second-largest county as well as a veteran state senator, in favor of the commie-Bernie Sanders-backed former head of the NAACP, Ben Jealous. (Was there ever a better name for a candidate of the Party of Envy?) More shockingly on a national level, though, 20-year veteran dummycrats-Democrat House leader Joe Crowley of New York was upset by a 28-year-old novice candidate. This stunning result made a sudden household name out of commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and she’s now in demand nationwide as a leader in the socialist movement.
               The enthusiasm behind the leftward turn in the political wheel, though, is papering over some serious concerns about these candidates. In her media appearances, commie-Ocasio-Cortez has been less than forthright about her intentions and ideas, conceding even that capitalism was the “most efficient and best” system — but only temporarily. While commie-Alexandria and her ilk are trying to sell their brand of politics as similar to that of nations like Norway, Denmark, and Sweden, in reality they would lead us to Venezuela.
               When it’s learned that commie-Bernie Sanders’s “Medicare for All” system is estimated to cost $32.6 trillion over 10 years, it seems to curb the public’s enthusiasm a tad.
               Even Barack liar-nObama is trying his best to keep cards close to his vest, passing up a chance to endorse the bid of commie-Ocasio-Cortez in an otherwise long list of endorsements.
               While commie-Ocasio-Cortez is popular among a set of Millennials who have no problem creating what they consider the evolution of society beyond capitalism,dummycrats-Democrat brass are a little nervous as they see their best chance at regaining congressional control and grabbing the levers of power in states where redistricting will be at stake slipping away because independents aren’t buying into the far-left message — and Republicans are being motivated to go to the polls.
               Some crafty dummycrats-Democratic Socialists attempt an end around by contending cradle-to-grave government is a natural extension of the teachings of Jesus. Kelley Rose, co-founder of the West Virginia chapter of the dummycrats-Democratic Socialists of America (commie-Ocasio-Cortez is a card-carrying member of the DSA), insists, “Possibly my mother would want to debate me on this, but if anyone was ever a socialist it was Jesus.” (Your mother isn’t the only one to debate that.)
               Certainly those who follow Christ are exhorted over and over in Scripture to assist our fellow men, but that instruction is not given to government. And as Mark Alexander pointed out, the one instance of poverty socialism doesn’t address is a poverty of spirit. This can only be addressed through a ministry of compassion and caring, not taxpayer cash and material goods. In fact, living in a socialist and secular society makes one poorer still in that spiritual regard.
               The story of the Left since November 2016 has been one of fits and starts: surprise electoral successes in Virginia, Alabama, and local races nationwide tempered by a lack of agreement on an agenda moving forward. This is because the success of commie-Ocasio-Cortez isn’t based on the same set of voters (or values) that propelled Conor Lamb to a Pennsylvania win last spring, and the overall electorate more closely mirrors Lamb’s PA-18 example than the overwhelmingly Democrat stronghold from which commie-Ocasio-Cortez hails. Yet Millennials, peering out from the shelter of their “safe spaces,” can’t always separate rhetoric from reality.
               It’s almost a parallel to the early days of the Tea Party, but that movement quickly figured out how to live within the so-called “Buckley Rule” of backing the most viable conservative candidate for the race. However, we don’t mind if the radical Left takes a lot longer to learn that viability lesson.

TEA PARTY -> Lois Lerner Case Explodes:
IRS Docs Link McCain’s Office To Tea Party Attacks


Since announcing his brain cancer was terminal, Arizon Sen. John McCain has continued to make headlines, but not due to his medical status. Instead, it has been one controversy after another revolving around him, and now one more had been added to the list.

This one is based in his dislike not for Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, but of the tea party.

McCain has never really endeared himself to conservatives, and he made his feeling public about the tea party movement at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor in 2015, according to a Yahoo report.

“I think also — I probably shouldn’t say this — but some of (the tea party) appeals to the bad angels of our nature rather than the better angels of our nature,” McCain said.

This attitude ties into the latest scandal swirling around McCain.

One of a number of scandals that plagued President Barack Obama and his administration involved the IRS targeting tea party groups after 2010. It seemed that their tax-exempt status requests were denied or delayed due to intense political partisanship in the agency.

In May 2013, The Washington Post reported that the IRS’s exempt-organizations division director Lois Lerner “let slip” the week prior “that low-level IRS staffers had focused extra scrutiny on conservative groups with words such as ‘tea party’ or ‘patriot’ in their names.”

In addition, “internal reviews have shown that Lerner knew about the targeting in 2011 — but neither Congress nor the public knew until (2013).” Despite this, Lerner was never prosecuted and was allowed to retire with her taxpayer-funded pension intact.

This did not change, even after House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, and Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam, an Illinois Republican, wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In it, they begged him to reopen a probe into the matter, according to Jay Sekulow, chief council for the American Center for Law and Justice, writing in a commentary for Fox News.

When President Donald Trump was sworn into office, some held out hope that the perceived injustices from Obama’s tenure would somehow be made right. However, in September 2017, Trump’s administration had already preemptively declined to pursue criminal charges against Lerner “based on the available evidence,” according to Fox News.

But more has since been uncovered about the scandal. Government watchdog group Judicial Watch has obtained and released “internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.”

Judicial Watch �dd0e

JW President @TomFitton: Much of what you know about the IRS scandal is thanks to JW... Our new docs show the scandal is bipartisan in nature. A McCain staffer suggested Lois Lerner audit all of the 501(c)(4) groups in a way that'd be financially ruinous.

Meeting notes from April 30, 2013, involving Kerner, Lerner, “and other high-ranking IRS officials” were obtained by JW. With the meeting taking place only 10 days before the IRS scandal exploded into the public view, they are particularly incriminating against Kerner and Lerner:

“Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time.”

“Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely.”

“Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints.”

“Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.”

Thus far, there is no evidence that McCain knew about or directed Kerner to take such action. It is plausible that Kerner, knowing of McCain’s dislike of the tea party, opted to be a proactive and loyal staffer by urging the IRS to take action against the groups.

But McCain’s personality does little to keep him far removed from the scandal and tongues are wagging with speculation as to his involvement. Regardless, McCain’s frosty relationship with President Donald Trump has not made the Arizona senator many fans among Trump supporters.

New suspicions about him betraying the tea party won’t help matters at all.


Chelsea Handler Says Fox Doesn’t Work With
Black People, Obviously Doesn’t Watch Network

Humor is supposed to be based on truth. After all, the reason we laugh at a joke or scenario is because it triggers a feeling of recognition about reality, especially if it’s presented in an unexpected way.

It doesn’t look like “comedian” Chelsea Handler has a very firm grasp on truth or reality, however.

After a production error during a Fox News broadcast was called out by users on Twitter, the raunchy and sex-obsessed Handler tried to bash the network … but ended up showing off her ignorance instead.

“Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle,” the comedian and television host posted on Twitter Thursday evening.

That part was true enough: Fox admitted that they made a mistake on a background slide during a tribute to the late soul singer, and accidentally showed a faded photo of LaBelle. The main image still showed Franklin, who passed away on Thursday in Detroit.

Broadcast television is complex, which you would think Handler understands after being involved in TV for many years. Honest mistakes happen on every network. But no: In Handler’s alternate reality, the only explanation for the mistake was racism.

“It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any,” she declared.

Chelsea Handler  @chelseahandler

Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle. It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any.

Was she trying to be bitter or funny? It was hard to tell, but either way, that statement shows just how isolated the Hollywood left is from reality.

If she really believes that Fox has “never worked with any” black people, maybe she should try an experiment: Actually watch the channel for a minute.

She would probably tune in to the face of Harris Faulkner, the enthusiastic and Emmy-winning host of “Outnumbered,” which airs every single weekday.

Or, maybe she could get a clue from Deneen Borelli, another well-known face of Fox News for nearly a decade. How about the venerable Juan Williams, co-host of “The Five” and a “Fox News Sunday” regular for over 20 years?

Nah. They apparently don’t count, because Handler would rather live in an alternate reality of ignorance than admit she was the one making racial assumptions.

We’re not finished! Moving on to frequent guest contributors to Fox News, how about Candace Owens? Brandon Tatum? Ben Carson? Larry Elder? All of these smart individuals are familiar faces at Fox, and all are — look closely! — African American.

That’s saying nothing of the behind-the-scenes staff at Fox, a good number of whom are of course black. In fact, it’s completely possible the photo mix-up was accidentally made by a black employee. Handler openly assumed the race of the staff members who made the error, while knowing nothing.

Once again, the left has tipped their hand and revealed just how elitist and out of touch they are.

Handler has likely never turned on Fox News in her life, yet she thinks she’s an expert on it. She eagerly diminishes and waves away the contributions of black Americans to one of the most popular news stations in the nation, while lecturing others about race.

This type of attitude implies that only “liberal approved” black voices count. If they don’t parrot a 43-year-old white comedian’s politics, they’re invisible to her.

That arrogant view, and not an honest editing mistake, is perhaps the real outrage here … and it’s exactly why so many black voters are walking away from the left.
