Egypt Attacks Illustrate El-Sisi, Trump
Meeting Critical In Addressing Threat
by Rick Wells
{rickwells.us} ~ We’ll continue to be told that this is not the true nature of their “religion of peace,” but the undeniable fact is that there is only one “religion”... in which any butchery is exalted and they pray to a god that they believe endorses the senseless murder and maiming of innocent people. There needs to be no justification beyond simply being different, not sharing their beliefs or because they happen to be in close proximity to those who don’t share their beliefs at the time the radicals choose to set off a bomb. Two Christian churches were the scene of Palm Sunday bomb blasts in Egypt, which killed forty-three innocent men, women and children, maimed many more and forever changed the lives of many others. It was all done in the name of the insanity that is radical Islam, the ideology of pig-headed, mindless Neanderthals...  http://rickwells.us/egypt-attacks-illustrate-el-sisi-trump-meeting-...

liar-nObama Administration Knew Syria
Still Had Chemical Weapons But Lied
by Jeff Dunetz
{lidblog.com} ~ President liar-nObama lied to America many times for the sake of his reelection and/or legacy.  There was the lie about the video being responsible for a spontaneous attack in Benghazi... because of a YouTube video trailer for a lousy movie, the lie that the Iran deal includes inspections, snap backs and it delays a possible Iranian nuclear weapon for much more than the actual ten years, and speaking of Iran there was the lie that he didn’t pay a ransom for the hostages, but most relevant for recent news was the lie that Syria gave up all of its chemical weapons in 2013-they didn’t, he knew they didn’t, but bragged how successful his negotiated settlement was anyway. How can I be so sure…well James Clapper said as much during congressional testimony in 2016...  http://lidblog.com/obama-knew-syria-still-had-chemical-weapons/

May Day Celebrations Of Open Borders And Defiance Announced By Gutierrez, Ramos
by Rick Wells
{rickwells.us} ~ Luis “the Roach” Gutierrez is not a representative of the people of the State of Illinois or any citizens of the United States, for that matter... He represents those who are from other places who have crossed our borders illegally or have overstayed their visas, illegal squatters are the constituency he works for. Since most of them don’t speak English and they are overwhelmingly Spanish speaking, he naturally does not make his address in the language of the enemy, English, but in their language. He wants them to know what he and co-conspirator Jorge Ramos are up to, not the Americans,  particularly not those in what he perceives as the “enemy camp,” the Trump administration. Gutierrez and his foreign comrades will be celebrating what is the traditionally the “labor day” holiday globally, marked in other nations on May 1st and promoted by the international labour movement, socialists, communists and anarchists...  http://rickwells.us/may-day-celebrations-open-borders-defiance-anno...

This Pesach we will remember them

by BARRY SHAW
{familysecuritymatters.org} ~ At Pesach, fifteen years ago, Netanya suffered what became known as the Passover Massacre when a Palestinian suicide bomber... walked into the banqueting hall of the Park Hotel and blew himself up as citizens gathered for the Seder service which recalls the Jewish people's liberation from cruelty and oppression to a land of their own. My sharpest recollections when I visited the hall the following day was the recessed floor. It was used as a dance floor for celebrations held at the hotel. It had become a red pool. The burst sprinkler system had flooded the floor. The water was mixed with red wine from smashed bottles and the blood of the victims. When I looked up I saw that a knife, with the power of the blast, had flown off one of the tables and embedded itself into a concrete ceiling block... http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/this-pesac...

The Left, Political Correctness and Cult Behavior
{frontpagemag.com} ~ Michael Savage famously said that liberalism is a mental disorder. I think it is more precise to say that liberalism is a cult. Isolation, threats and routine shaming all serve to silence cult members who cross them... exactly as happens with political correctness. The dreaded label of racist or bigot chills most opposition. Those closest to you will ostracize you for expressing an incorrect view, exactly as in a cult. Eventually, the inclination is to censor what you not only say but what you think. Most people upon being intimidated will rein in their perceptions and even their curiosity because the pain of social isolation is so terrifying. And as in a cult, there is a reflexive herd effect in which an almost unanimous consensus sees the offender as crazy or beyond the pale. It is far easier to create a new world in a void created by the silence of political correctness...  http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/266354/left-political-correctness-a...

Eleven Weeks In
by Tom McLaughlin
{tommclaughlin.blogspot.com} ~ Did President Trump have to be the one to enforce liar-nObama’s red line? I’m not sure. No one else would act to punish Syrian President Assad for using chemical weapons. Ideally, it would be the United Nations, but nobody has taken them seriously since Korea. How about we just quit the UN, tell them to leave New York City, and go somewhere else — like Brussels maybe? That city can have two useless international bureaucracies to COEXIST with the 300,000 Muslims who live there. Can you picture it? One big, multicultural city full of smiling, happy people holding hands? It’s a  fitting image for the capitol of the EU and the UN, right? Just watch out for airport bombers and careening trucks.
Trump let the world know last week that he’s not Barack liar-nObama, and that’s worth something. He’s not a wuss and he’s not predictable. Now Kim Jong Un can worry that Trump might do to him what he’s threatening to do to us — at any time. Iran can worry too. It won’t likely capture any more US sailors in the Persian Gulf with President Trump as commander-in-chief. All that is great.
It’s not good, however that Trump has put US Marines in Syria. That is contrary to what he said during the campaign. A month ago I wrote about the danger:

[Ethnic groups like the] Sunni Kurds, for example, are a minority in the border areas of Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey — all of which, along with Russia now, are fighting ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Kurds want to be a nation-state too, but none of the aforementioned countries will cede them their ancestral territory which overlaps all. The US is arming Kurds. Last week, President Trump put US Marines on the ground in Syria. US soldiers must now fight alongside all these groups — some of which are still fighting each other — against ISIS. What could possibly go wrong?

A lot could go wrong, of course, especially after last week’s missile attack. Trump got a lot of votes promising not to mess around in the Middle East without a clear US national interest. Sending in the Marines contradicts his “America First” rhetoric.
Among the sixteen Republicans running in 2016, Trump was my last choice, below John Kasich. He won the nomination and I resigned myself to vote for him, but I wrote several columns detailing my concerns last fall. I won’t go into detail again here: suffice it to say that liar-Hillary was “the devil you know” and Trump was “the devil you don’t,” but I went against the prevailing wisdom that the devil you know is preferable. However Trump turns out, I figured, he wouldn’t be nearly as bad as liar-Hillary would be.
People from different parts of the country who read those columns wrote me about their support for Trump. He alone, they claimed, had guts enough to kick a** in Washington. He certainly had the confidence, but my misgivings remained. Democrats and Republicans both needed serious a**-kicking, yes, but would Trump be the best one to do it? I’m still not sure.
During transition, he picked an outstanding cabinet but it also became evident early in that process that liar-nObama was laying mines for him. Days before his term ended, liar-nObama signed an executive order making wiretap transcripts of Trump campaign officials available to hundreds of people in sixteen different intelligence agencies. This made leaking hundreds of times more likely. If that wasn’t liar-nObama’s intention, it’s hard to imagine what was. Democrats and Mainstream Media — please excuse the redundancy— were, and are, out to get Trump, no question. They’ve pulled out all the stops, but Trump is fighting back and they’re not used to that. They coined the term “fake news,” to use against him, for example, only to have Trump immediately turn it around on them. That was brilliant.
Trump’s inaugural speech was wonderful, echoing what he promised during his campaign. Many of his tweets, however, reflect an obsession with inaugural crowds and the number of electoral votes he got compared to other recently-elected presidents. His claims were obviously erroneous and they undercut his leadership. I found myself wishing his advisors would take his phone away or at least temper his impulsivity. It’s embarrassing. When asked my opinion of our president lately I say I still don’t like him, but I like what he’s doing — except for the tweets and the troop deployments.
We’re eleven weeks in now. Here’s Trump’s report card from this former teacher:

Domestic policy  — A. He reversed most liar-nObama executive orders and is enforcing immigration

Economy — A. He’s reducing needless regulation and spurring energy development.

Foreign policy — C. He started well, telling other countries he’s putting America first, but he’s made some risky moves lately.

Deportment — D. He’s impulsive and he doesn’t play well with others.
