Trump Keeps His Promises to Veterans
by Larry Alton
{ americanthinker.com } ~ When President Donald Trump was running for office, he made countless claims that he would care for the veterans of this country... and do something about the neglect previous administrations have shown for their well-being. As of now, he seems to be living up to his promises. Candidates for this country's highest office make lots of promises during campaign seasons and election cycles. In fact, they make so many that it's often hard to keep track of what they say and hold them accountable once they take the helm of the White House. But it would take an awful lot of amnesia to erase Donald Trump's promises to reform the Department of Veterans' Affairs (V.A.) from our collective memories. Trump didn't just make vague promises – he outlined a 10-point plan for how he would reform the V.A. and bring dignity back to the lives of veterans all over the country. It was an integral component of his campaign to Make America Great Again. Among other goals, the plan touched on issues like...

Legal complaint filed against 
scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters for ethics violations
by Jerry McCormick
{ patriotnewsalerts.com } ~ Finally, some common sense has landed on the table in the scumbag/mad- Maxine Waters case... After she encouraged her supporters to create a crowd and harass Trump Cabinet members, it was continuously passed off as protests. Creating a crowd and harassing people is rioting. And, that is exactly what scumbag/mad-Waters was trying to provoke. Even though Republicans have the numbers in both Congress and the Senate, nothing has been done to scumbag/mad-Waters over her comments. That changed when Judicial Watch filed its complaint...

Islamic State senior commander: “Oil and gas obtained
by the Islamic State sold to Turkey and the Syrian regime” 

by ROBERT SPENCER
{ jihadwatch.org } ~ The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) sold illegally obtained gas and oil to the Russian- and Iranian-backed Syrian regime as well as to Turkey... while it ruled Iraq and Syria, Kurdistan 24 learned from a jailed senior commander from the jihadist group. “Oil and gas obtained by the Islamic State were sold to Turkey and the Syrian regime,” Razeek Radeek Maksimo, an Azerbaijani ISIS senior commander, asserted while speaking from a Syrian Kurdistan jail. “Oil was sold to Turkey through the Free Syrian Army (FSA).” The FSA, which once received U.S. assistance, is now fighting Assad in Syria with the support of Turkey. At the peak of ISIS’s power, oil was the group’s top source of income. A Top U.S. Treasury official described the jihadi group in 2014 as “probably the best-funded terrorist organization we have confronted,” citing oil as its primary source of revenue...

Defense contractor detained migrant kids 
in vacant Phoenix office building
by Aura Bogado, Ziva Branstetter and Vanessa Swales
{ revealnews.org } ~ A major U.S. defense contractor quietly detained dozens of immigrant children inside a vacant Phoenix office building with dark windows... no kitchen and only a few toilets during three weeks of the Trump administration’s family separation effort, Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting has learned. Videos shot by an alarmed neighbor show children dressed in sweatsuits being led – one so young she was carried – into the 3,200-square-foot building in early June. The building is not licensed by Arizona to hold children, and the contractor, MVM Inc., has claimed publicly that it does not operate “shelters or any other type of housing” for children. Defending the administration’s policy to separate families at the border in a May interview with NPR, White House chief of staff John Kelly promised: “The children will be taken care of – put into foster care or whatever.” Whether or not these children were taken from their parents, that “whatever” for them was the vacant building tucked away in a midtown Phoenix neighborhood. It is not listed among shelters operating through the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement or on the state child care licensing website...   https://www.revealnews.org/article/defense-contractor-detained-migr...

scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters Incited ‘Very Definition of Mob Violence,’
Says Group Filing Ethics Complaint with House
by CALEB HOWE
{ pjmedia.com } ~ Conservative watchdog and activism group Judicial Watch has filed an ethics complaint against Rep. scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters (D-Calif.)... said Tom Fitton, the organization's president, on Fox News on Thursday. "The number one House ethics rule is you've got to act in a way that reflects credibly on the House at all times, and when you’re out there… inciting mob violence against sitting Trump cabinet members, that doesn’t obviously reflect credibly on the House,” said Fitton on Fox & Friends. “And the House has to decide whether they’re going to allow its members to use the House as a platform and its power and position to attack and incite violence against Trump cabinet members.” scumbag/mad-Waters infamously told a crowd of liberal protestors to "create a crowd" and "push back" any time they see a member of the Trump cabinet...

Rolling Back liar-nObama's Legacy With 24 Rescissions 

by Michael Swartz:  Live by the pen and phone, die by the pen and phone. This week, President Donald Trump’s administration undid yet more malfeasance perpetrated under the previous regime’s rule-by-fiat. And leftists are losing their minds. Again.

             We start with education admissions practices. One of the most exciting days in a parent’s life is that day a letter comes from the college of their child’s choice — a letter stating that, yes, that child has been accepted into the next incoming freshman class. Unfortunately, some students don’t make this cut due to insufficient grades, test scores, extracurricular activities or other less objective factors.
               But when the students in question are academically superior and natural leaders and yet are denied admission when more ordinary students are being accepted because of their race or economic status, that clear-cut discrimination is cause for action. In some cases, aggrieved students — with the aid of an advocacy group — have filed suit. One of these, a lawsuit by a group of Asian-American students, targets Harvard University with a discrimination claim that even the school found to be true through its own investigation. Even so, Harvard continued to downgrade Asian-American applicants anyway — ironically, in the name of “diversity.” Documents unsealed as part of the Harvard suit revealed that the school used a subjective, personality-based rating system to artificially lower the number of Asian-Americans admitted.
               That case could eventually be heard by the Supreme Court, but in the meantime it’s prompted the Trump administration, led by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, to act. This impetus accompanied an earlier executive order from President Trump directing government agencies to scrap wherever possible such guidance as spelled out in the infamous “Dear Colleague” letters administered during Barack liar-nObama’s administration. These executive end-runs were little more than edicts and coercions aimed at institutions of higher learning and lacking legislative input. Their goal? To create a more “diverse” student population solely based on race and economic status.
               The rescission of liar-nObama’s direction that diversity is “a compelling state interest” generally means a return to George W. Bush-era policy, which held that the factors of race and economic status should be a last resort in promoting a diverse student body. As Robby Soave at Reason opined, the Bush approach “was consistent with Supreme Court precedent that has permitted affirmative action but narrowly limited its use.”
               These admissions regulations were among the biggest changes made by the rescission of 24 previous guidance documents, a decision Sessions announced Tuesday. “The American people deserve to have their voices heard and a government that is accountable to them,” he said. “When issuing regulations, federal agencies must abide by constitutional principles and follow the rules set forth by Congress and the President.
               “In previous administrations, however, agencies often tried to impose new rules on the American people without any public notice or comment period, simply by sending a letter or posting a guidance document on a website. That’s wrong, and it’s not good government,” explained Sessions as part of a release  accompanying the list of rescissions. “In the Trump administration, we are restoring the rule of law. That’s why in November I banned this practice at the Department and we began rescinding guidance documents that were issued improperly or that were simply inconsistent with current law,” the AG concluded.
               In all, the count of liar-nObama-era guidance documents rescinded is now 49, and Sessions and Co. aren’t through yet. “The [DOJ Regulatory Reform] Task Force is continuing its review of existing guidance documents to repeal, replace, or modify,” Sessions added.
               Since the Sessions announcement had the effect of a classic Friday afternoon document dump (coming as it did on the day before a holiday), the caterwauling from the Left wasn’t quite as pronounced — but it was there. Leading the charge was the ACLU, with its Racial Justice Program director Dennis Parker using the occasion to take a gratuitous swipe at Education Secretary Betsy DeVos — who was nowhere to be found in the Sessions release.
               Meanwhile, ACLU National Political Director Faiz Shakir  played the good old-fashioned race card: “This move from Attorney General Sessions is a concrete signal that there is a war being waged on civil liberties from the highest levels of government,” Shakir whined. “This is another attack by Sessions and President Trump on people of color.” Ironically, Shakir is the son of Pakistani immigrants and attended … Harvard.
               Clearly, the greatest lack of diversity on college campuses is the dearth of conservative thought. If these institutions of higher learning are genuinely interested in diversity, they should strive to include among their faculty and staff viewpoints that aren’t strictly held by the Left.

ALERT ALERT

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
