Trump can ignore environmental laws to build border wall
after Supreme Court declines to hear challenge
by Tucker Higgins
{cnbc.com} ~ The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday said it would decline to hear a challenge to the Trump administration's proposed border wall... brought by environmental groups who say construction could threaten endangered animals and violate environmental laws. The groups asked the court to reject a 1996 law signed by President scumbag/liar-Bill Clinton that provides the executive branch with authority to waive environmental laws if those laws impede construction of barriers and roads near the border. The law was expanded by Congress in 2005 to give the Department of Homeland Security authority to waive "all legal requirements" that could stand in the way of border construction. The environmental groups said that government's ability to waive the laws is unconstitutional. The justices did not issue a ruling on that matter. But because they will not hear the case, a February ruling by a federal judge in San Diego will remain in place...  https://www.cnbc.com/2018/12/03/supreme-court-lets-dhs-ignore-envir...

NeverTrump Clings To Russia Collusion 
Conspiracy Theory Despite Lack Of Evidence  
by Mollie Hemingway
{thefederalist.com} ~ The NeverTrump movement has gone from pushing allegations that Donald Trump treasonously colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election... from its rightful owner scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton, to pretending that his attempts at business deals in Russia, which were legal and the subject of widespread reporting during the election, are evidence of unspecified crimes. The main barrier to the Russia-Trump collusion theory — an information operation that was secretly bought and paid for by scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, spread by a compliant media, and weaponized by the highest levels of federal agencies — is the lack of evidence for it. But that lack of evidence hasn’t been much of an obstacle for either the so-called mainstream media or the leaders of the NeverTrump movement. The news that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen pled guilty to a process crime was enough to convince them of Trump’s guilt, despite the lack of evidence. The guilty plea was reportedly related to Cohen lying to Congress about when he talked to others about attempts at a deal in Moscow. Yet the attempts at a deal in Moscow have been known for years. In fact, a major reason anyone knows in-depth details about the Trump Tower Moscow plan that went nowhere is that Donald Trump, Jr. testified about the plans beginning more than a year ago, in front of multiple committees in 2017. Transcripts of that testimony were made publicly available last May. It’s unclear why some journalists and media activists are attempting to spin this information as shocking and new since it’s been public for months, even before this testimony. Here’s The New York Times talking about the Moscow Trump Tower in August 2017, for instance...  http://thefederalist.com/2018/12/03/nevertrump-clings-to-russia-col...

So What if Trump Wanted to 
Build a Tower in Moscow?

Is the FBI Raiding Whistleblowers' Homes 
to Protect dirty cop-Robert Mueller?
by Daniel John Sobieski

{americanthinker.com} ~ Back on October 19, 2017, I raised the question of just how much Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller and Deputy A.G. Rod Rosenstein actually knew about scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton and Uranium One... since it had been reported that the FBI was aware before the deal was approved in 2010 that Russia was engaging in criminal activity to penetrate our nuclear industry and gain access to chunks of our uranium reserves. Earlier, in July, I called for a criminal investigation into scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton's collusion with Russia  to turn over control of 20 percent of our uranium supplies to Russian interests in return for some $145 million in donations to the scumbag/liar-Clinton Foundation. It turns out that there was one: an FBI investigation dating back to 2009, with current deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein and Special Prosecutor dirty cop-Robert Mueller up to their eyeballs in covering up evidence of scumbag/liar-Hillary's collusion, bordering on treason, with Vladimir Putin's Russia: Prior to the scumbag/liar-nObama administration approving the very controversial deal in 2010 giving Russia 20% of America's Uranium, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were involved in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in order to benefit Vladimir Putin, says a report by The Hill. John Solomon and Alison Spann, writing in The Hill, reported on an investigation that suddenly and mysteriously vanished off the radar as  scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton was seriously contemplating being scumbag/liar-nObama's successor: Federal agents used a confidential U.S. witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather extensive financial records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, FBI and court documents show.... You bet its to protect dirty cop-Mueller.

A Senate Bill Protecting dirty cop-Mueller 
Would Be a Constitutional Outrage

{patriotnewsdaily.com} ~ Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell isn’t always the easier person to defend, but he’s come through in the clutch more often than not over the last three years... He did so again this week when he stood in the way of a bill – pushed by Democrats and a handful of misguided Republicans – to give blanket legislative protection to Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller. Such a bill would have been a constitutional disgrace, just as dirty cop-Mueller’s original appointment was. Not to mention, it would have been a political disaster, granting dirty cop-Mueller a legitimacy that he has not earned. McConnell made the right choice. The bill was headed nowhere fast, anyway. What do people like rino-Jeff Flake think was going to happen when it hit the president’s desk? Has Trump offered any view of this witch hunt that indicates he would have signed a piece of legislation solidifying dirty cop-Mueller’s witch hunt into law? If he did, we must have missed it. He would have vetoed this bill in a heartbeat – a move that, by itself, would only give dirty cop-Mueller more ammunition for his outlandish obstruction of justice theory. The only crimes dirty cop-Mueller has been able to find have been created by the investigation itself; this would have been just one more example of that vicious circle. Every facet of our Constitution and the laws which are derived from that document point to the President’s power to appoint and fire members of the executive branch. This is perhaps his ultimate power – his ultimate reason for existing. Among the people he is authorized to fire? The FBI director and the Attorney General of the Justice Department. And so the Senate is going to make it illegal for him to fire the “special counsel?” How absurd. If Trump can fire scumbag-Comey and Sessions, he can damn sure fire dirty cop-Robert Mueller. In a column this week, National Review’s Rich Lowry pointed out the bizarre logic that would make a dirty cop-Mueller Protection Bill necessary or even possible. “In compelling Senate testimony, Yale law professor Akhil Amar explained the constitutional problems with the dirty cop-Mueller protection bill,” Lowry noted. “One is that to be constitutional, the special counsel must be an inferior officer. Otherwise, he has to be confirmed by the Senate, which dirty cop-Mueller wasn’t. And if he’s an inferior officer, he can be fired. dirty cop-Mueller can’t be an inferior officer in some respects and a hypersuperior officer in others, enjoying protections from his ouster that even Cabinet officials don’t enjoy.”...

Apocalypse When?

by Cal Thomas

{townhall.com} ~ Each time an end-of-the-world prophecy is delivered -- whether by a self-deluded preacher, a group of politicians or scientists -- we are told that we must believe. Never mind how many of their prophecies have been wrong in the past, this time they mean it.

The latest prophecy of doom and planetary extinction comes from a government report authored by people appointed during the scumbag/liar-nObama administration. This report, and others before it, concluded that Earth is warming, humans are responsible and that we have only 10 years to fix it. But wait, haven't there been earlier deadlines, which have passed, and aren't we still here with weather patterns behaving much as they have before, to wit, hot summers, cold winters, fires, floods and earthquakes?

Paul Krugman, the notoriously wrong columnist for The New York Times he predicted "a global recession, with no end in sight," if Donald Trump became president has gone beyond science, labeling those who disagree with global warmists, "depraved." When you resort to name-calling you have lost the argument.

Granted, people these days tend to listen only to information that ratifies beliefs they already hold. On this issue, the warmist cult promotes only information -- whether it is from people masquerading as scientists, like Bill Nye "the science guy," who is not a scientist but a mechanical engineer, to others with credentials mostly outside of climatology.

So, what is the truth and how can we know it?

The media and much of political Washington, including even a few Republicans, has accepted this flawed doctrine as truth. They claim climate change is "settled science" and many believe it. Why? Because unsettling comments from scientists with experience and knowledge in the field; scientists who lack a political agenda, are largely ignored. 

Responding to the government report, climatedepot.org, my favorite website with links to knowledgeable and skeptical scientists, notes: "The National Climate Assessment report as reviewed by the National Academy of Sciences, is basing one of its headline scare scenarios on a study funded by climate activist billionaire Tom Steyer. Climate expert Dr. Roger Pielke Jr. noted on November 24 that the claim of economic damage from climate change is based on a 15 degree F temperature increase that is double the 'most extreme value reported elsewhere in the report.' The 'sole editor' of this claim in the report was an alum of the Center for American Progress, which is also funded by Tom Steyer."

Climatologist Dr. Pat Michaels calls the government report "Systematically flawed" and says it "should be shelved."

Dr. John P. Dunne is head of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at Princeton University. His webpage describes him as "an expert in ocean biogeochemistry, climate and earth system modeling with over 20 years of experience developing instruments, collecting field observations, and performing analysis and modeling studies." He wrote Climate Depot: "Two years into the Trump administration it is sad to see this 400-page pile of crap."

Climate Depot founder Marc Morano says of the government report: "It is a political report masquerading as science. The media is hyping a rehash of frightening climate change claims by 
scumbag/liar-nObama administration holdover activist government scientists. The new report is once again predetermined science. The National Climate Assessment report reads like a press release from environmental pressure groups -- because it is! Two key authors are longtime Union of Concerned Scientist activists, Donald Wuebbles and Katharine Hayhoe."

The Trump administration has promised to issue its own report that will include "more transparent and data-driven information."

If these scare tactics by leftists who want even more government control over our lives were to be accepted as fact, our economy would crumble and the outcome would produce little if any change in global temperatures. Riots in Paris over the rise in the gas tax imposed by President Emmanuel Macron in an effort to minimize France's reliance on fossil fuels are an indication of how little the public is willing to tolerate even the smallest economic fluctuation. French gas prices are now over $7 a gallon. Would Americans accept a similar scenario here if we embraced flawed climate change "science" and its pronouncements of doom, our markets crashed and the economy spiraled out of control?

I doubt it.

CRIME!! -> Clinton Nightmare! Chief Financial Officer Of Clinton Foundation Turns Government Informant On Crime Family

Donations to the Clinton Foundation plummeted by 90% over a three-year period since Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to President Donald Trump.

But that may be the least of the her worries.

John Solomon from The Hill dropped another bombshell that will keep the Clintons up at night.

The former Chief Financial Officer of the Clinton Foundation has turned on the crime family and is now working as a government informant.

This could spell doom for the Clinton Crime Family.

American Thinker reported:

John Solomon of The Hill reveals the story that has been percolating for a long time but kept tightly under wraps – because that is what serious prosecutors do, especially when grand juries are poring over evidence and issuing indictments that remain sealed until the right moment comes. The trigger for the story coming out now probably is a House subcommittee hearing scheduled next week by Mark Meadows, chair of the House Freedom Caucus, while the GOP still can set the agenda of House hearings.

[A] GOP-led congressional subcommittee, led by Rep. Mark Meadows (N.C.), is planning to hold a hearing next week to review the work of John Huber, the special U.S attorney named a year ago to investigate all things Clinton.

It turns out that whistleblowers inside and outside the Clinton Foundation have amassed “6,000 pages of evidence attached to a whistleblower submission filed secretly more than a year ago with the IRS and FBI.” Among that evidence can be found:

Those reviews flagged serious concerns about legal compliance, improper commingling of personal and charity business and “quid pro quo” promises made to donors while Hillary Clinton was secretary of State.

The submission also cites an interview its investigators conducted with Andrew Kessel that quotes the foundation’s longtime chief financial officer as saying he was unable to stop former President Clinton from “commingling” personal business and charitable activities inside the foundation and that he “knows where all the bodies are buried.”

Their own investigation! That’s hard to put down as politically motivated.

Having the chief financial officer of the Clinton Foundation turn informant is a nightmare for the Clintons. The CFO has to process all the cash, and because that person usually is on the hook for any criminal violations, there is ample incentive to turn state’s evidence.

That evidence was assembled by a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, run by accomplished ex-federal criminal investigators, who alleged the Clinton Foundation engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties.

In addition to the IRS, the firm’s partners have had contact with prosecutors in the main Justice Department in Washington and FBI agents in Little Rock, Ark.
