Trump Stands Firm On Border, Immigration –
BRING ON THE SHUTDOWN, 
EXPOSE The DEMS  
{ rickwells.us } ~ President Trump has had enough of the Democrat game playing with our nation’s future, particularly on the matter of immigration... He addressed that topic on Tuesday, during a White House meeting on illegal alien gang crime and MS-13, the gang imported from Central America by Hussein liar-nObama. Trump says, “We can’t do a job, these incredible professionals at the table cannot do their job unless we change, really the legislation and we’re going to get it done. Frankly, I’ll go a step further.” “If we don’t change the legislation,” says President Trump, “if we don’t get rid of these loopholes where killers are allowed to come into our country and continue to kill, gang members. And we’re just talking about MS-13, there are many gang members that we don’t even mention.”...  https://rickwells.us/trump-border-immigration-shutdown/
Steele Vanishes from Court When 
Asked to Stand Behind Dossier Claims 
by TIMOTHY KEVIN WHITEMAN 
{ conservativetribune.com } ~ This Christopher Steele character was playing fast and loose, assuming liar-Hillary would win and his deeds would go unnoticed... Looks like he didn’t plan for the American people, and now it seems he’s on the run. As reported by Fox News, the author behind the infamous Trump dossier and the man behind the ever-growing and increasingly odoriferous onion that is the FISA scandal is on the lam. He failed to show up for a court date on Monday in a U.K. libel case directly connected to the publication of the Democrat-funded dossier. “On both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, former British MI-6 Intelligence Officer Christopher Steele is going to extremes to avoiding answering questions from the United States Congress, while at the same time avoiding being videotaped and deposed in a multi-million dollar libel case brought against Buzzfeed,” Fox News reported...   https://conservativetribune.com/steele-vanishes-from-court-when-ask...

Limbaugh pegs who's 
responsible for wild stock market
by BOB UNRUH
{ wnd.com } ~ On his program Tuesday, he pointed to the people trying to remove President Trump from office... There are a lot of people in the market who I think are very, very alarmed by the instability brought about by this attempt to get rid of Donald Trump,” Limbaugh told his listeners. They’re saying that this economic growth, this wild economic growth and all of this job creation and the accompanying wage increases is putting inflationary pressures on the economy, and the Federal Reserve says, ‘We’re gonna have to raise interest rates,’ and that supposedly is causing the market to plunge. What causes markets to plunge is uncertainty, and I’m gonna give you another ingredient – a potential ingredient — into this market seesaw, if you will, and that is this...  http://www.wnd.com/2018/02/limbaugh-pegs-whos-responsible-for-wild-...

The GOP’s Coming 
liar-nObamacare Capitulation
by Doug Badger
Congressional Republicans were elected to repeal liar-nObamacare. They may run this year as the politicians who saved it... Since late last year, GOP leaders have been planning to pump tens of billions of dollars’ worth of new federal spending into the veins of insurance companies that are hemorrhaging red ink on the liar-nObamacare exchanges. The transfusion is expected to be a concoction of two bills. The first, championed by Sens. Lamar Alexander, R.-Tenn., and Patty Murray, D.-Wash., would appropriate cost-sharing reduction payments to insurers. The second, sponsored by Sens. RINO-Susan Collins, R.-Maine, and Bill Nelson, D.-Fla., would give insurers an additional $10 billion and perhaps more in federal cash...  http://dailysignal.com/2018/02/06/the-gops-coming-obamacare-capitul...

ACOSTA Attempts To RACE-BAIT 
Sarah Sanders on DACA LAZY ASSES 
rickwells.us } ~ It’s easy to imagine Sarah Sanders ribbing General Kelly for giving the media propagandists the fresh meat comments... that she’s going to have to go out and deal with, knowing the frothing hysteria that awaits her. It almost makes one wonder if they aren’t toying with some of these libtards just a bit, to give them the shiny objects that they can’t resist just to watch them twist themselves up. One of the most predictable is CNN’s Jim Acosta, a naturalized Cuban who believes we should import all of his native land and the rest of the third world so that there’s no America left and not a square mile untouched. Acosta asks, “Can I get back to the Chief of Staff saying that some of the dreamers DACA protected squatting illegals may just have been too lazy to get off their asses.” Unable to dispute the accuracy of that statement and as usual focused on demeaning the President and his administration in any manner possible, Acosta focuses on the tone of the comments...  https://rickwells.us/snowflake-acosta-race-sanders/

The Memo and the Truth 
by Cal Thomas 
{ townhall.com } ~ Partisans tend to read, watch and listen only, or mostly, to information and opinions that reinforce their beliefs. If information surfaces that counters those beliefs, it is usually disparaged, excused or ignored. That's human nature.

Such is the case with the "memo" released last Friday by the Republican majority on the House Intelligence Committee. The four-page document alleges, in the words of a Wall Street Journal editorial: "the FBI and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court appear to have been used to influence the 2016 election and its aftermath."

If true, that is real collusion.

Conservative partisans are rejoicing and having an "I told you so" moment. Partisans on the left are reading coverage and editorials in The New York Times and the Washington Post and drawing sustenance for their position that the memo is a "nothingburger" and does not undermine Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign's "collusion" with Russia to influence the election. That not a shred of credible evidence has been produced on this point does not deter them.

Critics of the memo, who tried to stop its release, initially contended it undermines and smears the FBI and the Department of Justice. No it doesn't. It suggests that a few higher-ups in those agencies used their power and influence in an attempt to keep Donald Trump from becoming president and after he was elected to undermine his presidency. Now that the memo has been made public, partisans on the left, who once claimed its release would seriously damage the FBI and the DOJ, now say there is nothing there. It can't be both a danger and nothing, so which is it? In Washington, having it both ways is a cherished tradition.

Politicizing a powerful federal agency is nothing new. Think Lois Lerner and her efforts while at the IRS to thwart tax exemptions for conservative and religious organizations, as well as a few progressives. Or recall how Richard Nixon and his attorney general, John Mitchell, politicized the IRS and Justice Department in an attempt to punish their political enemies.

The most damning part of the memo is the assertion that the FBI and Justice Department used a "dossier" authored by ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and funded in part by the liar-Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee in an attempt to smear Donald Trump. It was this dossier that the government agencies used to convince a FISA judge to issue a warrant allowing Trump campaign official Carter Page and possibly others to be spied on. The memo asserts those seeking the warrant did not tell the judge about the fingerprints of the Democratic Party and liar-Clinton campaign on the dossier. That is worse than oversight. If true, it is criminal and possibly prosecutable behavior.

In an interview with Bret Baier on Fox News Friday, Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes suggested there is more to come, including release of a memo from the Democratic minority and possibly the full transcript of testimony by Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe before a closed meeting of the Intelligence Committee. McCabe signed one of the FISA applications and then-FBI Director James Comey signed three. Nunes contends the subsequent warrants issued by the FISA judge were based on flawed and incomplete information and thus would likely not have been issued had the judge been in possession of additional facts.

The Republican memo is not the end but rather the beginning to exposing behind-the-scenes maneuvering by liberals to keep Donald Trump out of the White House and put liar-Hillary Clinton in it. The public has a right to know all the facts in this case, wherever they lead.

Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘The Real Second Amendment Isn’t Absolute

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted Saturday there is a “real” Second Amendment and an “imaginary” one and he believes the real one is “not absolute.”

Murphy, “I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment. And the real 2nd Amendment isn’t absolute.”

The statement was a precursor to his call for banning “assault rifles” in the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting, even though “assault rifles” were not used in the attack.

Murphy said the “real 2nd Amendment…allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said the Santa Fe High School attackers used a .38 revolver and a shotgun to carry out his heinous acts. Therefore, a ban on “assault rifles” would have done nothing to prevent the attack from occurring or the tragic loss of life from taking place.

It should be noted that Saturday was not the first time Sen. Murphy called the essence of the Second Amendment into question. On August 6, 2013, Breitbart News reported that Murphy told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God-given right. It has always had conditions upon it like the First Amendment has.”

Murphy did not grapple with the words, “Shall not be infringed.”
