Jeff Sessions resigns as attorney general, at Trump's 'request
by Alex Pappas & Jake Gibson  
{} ~ Jeff Sessions, once one of President Trump’s most loyal and trusted advisers before infuriating Trump over his recusal from the Russia investigation... has resigned as attorney general at the request of the president. “At your request, I am submitting my resignation,” Sessions wrote in a Wednesday letter to Trump. The president tweeted that Matthew Whitaker, chief of staff to Sessions, will become the acting attorney general. Whitaker, according to sources, is now overseeing everything at the Justice Department, including the Russia investigation -- despite calls from Democrats to recuse himself. “We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States. He will serve our Country well,” he said. Trump added: “We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well! A permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date.”...
For Trump, challenge of governing with Dem House, 
but full speed ahead with GOP Senate
by Byron York
{} ~ It took a while for President Trump to get used to working with the Republican-led Congress... but he developed a style of dealing with lawmakers that led to the passage of tax reform and a number of smaller measures. Now, though, with Democrats winning control of the House, Trump faces the challenge of working with an empowered opposition whose leaders are motivated by intense animus toward the president -- and who will have the ability to stop any Trump legislative initiatives cold. On the other hand, with the Republicans keeping and strengthening control of the Senate, Trump will be able to continue what has been the single most important accomplishment that has bonded him not just with his base but with the Republican establishment that remains cool to him: judicial appointments. In the runup to the midterms, when Trump adopted a Senate-focused campaign strategy, some left-leaning commentators suggested that Trump was desperate to keep the Senate because he knew it would be the jury that could acquit him if he is impeached by the House. But the fact is, if impeachment happened, Trump could easily be acquitted by a Democratic-controlled Senate, just as scumbag/liar-Bill Clinton was acquitted by a Republican-led Senate. A much bigger factor is this: Trump needs the Senate to stay in Republican hands to keep his extraordinary line of judicial confirmations going. And now he has it. GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham saw it Tuesday evening, tweeting, "When the GOP maintains control of the Senate, the conservative judicial train is going to keep running!" So far, the Senate has confirmed two Trump Supreme Court justices, 29 circuit court of appeals judges, and 53 district court judges. That is more than any other president in memory at this stage in his presidency. About one-sixth of the federal judiciary now consists of Trump nominees. Look for Trump and Senate GOP leaders to keep increasing that number...
Florida heading to a recount in close Senate 
contest between Rick Scott and Bill Nelson
by Daniel Chaitin
{} ~ Florida is on the cusp of a recount for its close U.S. Senate race, according to Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson... "We are proceeding to a recount," Nelson said in a brief statement, first reported by local media. Republican candidate Rick Scott, who is also the outgoing governor, declared victory Tuesday evening while Nelson refused to deliver a concession speech. With 100 percent of precincts reporting Wednesday morning, Scott leads incumbent Nelson by .43 points, or about 34,435 votes. Any result below half a percentage point triggers an automatic recount, per state law. The secretary of state, who is Scott appointee Ken Detzner, orders recounts for federal, state, or multi-county races. If the difference in votes is found to be less than .25 points, then a hand recount will ensue. Scott's campaign, while it acknowledged state law for a recount, reacted to Nelson's statement, saying, "This race is over. It's a sad way for Bill Nelson to end his career. He is desperately trying to hold on to something that no longer exists."...
The advance of illiberal world disorder
by Clifford D. May
{} ~ You don’t know much about history if you don’t know this: “Until 1945 the story of humankind going back thousands of years was a long tale of war, tyranny, and poverty... Moments of peace were fleeting, democracy so rare as to seem almost accidental, and prosperity the luxury of the powerful few.” That quote is from the opening chapter of Robert Kagan’s new book: “The Jungle Grows Back: America and Our Imperiled World.” A few words about Mr. Kagan: He is a senior fellow at the liberal Brookings Institution, he writes a column for the liberal Washington Post, and the liberal New York Times recently called him a “conservative American thinker.” The Times has a point. Progressives believe that progress is inevitable and that history has a direction and purpose — an arc bending toward justice. Mr. Kagan’s conservative conviction: Such theories have no basis in history or reality. Only thanks to American power and leadership did the post-World War II era become what Mr. Kagan calls “an anomaly in the history of human existence,” a time when billions of people climbed out of poverty, the number of democratic societies grew rapidly and “an ever-expanding panoply of individual rights has come to be respected.” His fear is that Americans are no longer willing to do the hard work necessary to maintain this “liberal world order.” The consequence, he warns, is likely to be a new dark age or, to employ his preferred metaphor, the rapid encroachment of the jungle and the withering of the garden. “If scumbag/liar-nObama’s policies put a dent in the liberal world order,” he writes, “Trump’s statements and actions have been driving a stake through it.”...
Ken Starr: “Not Even Close” 
to Enough Evidence to Impeach Trump

{} ~ Ken Starr, the special prosecutor hired to investigate the scumbag/liar-Clintons for their involvement in the Whitewater real estate scandal back in the 1990s... told a New York radio station this weekend that Democrats had no reasonable case of impeachment against President Donald Trump. Starr, whose finding of perjury against President scumbag/liar-  Bill Clinton eventually led to his impeachment in the House of Representatives, said that it took more than innuendo and unpopularity to justify impeachment proceedings. “Not even close,” Starr said on 970 AM. “I know of no evidence that would suggest that he has committed high crimes and misdemeanors. You can hate the way he tweets, you can disagree with his politics, but be very careful before you move the country toward impeachment. It’s inherently divisive.” Even with the high standard of evidence against scumbag/liar-Clinton, Republicans were largely thought to have exceeded the limits of partisan rancor by bringing impeachment proceedings against him. With the country divided on whether or not what scumbag/liar-Clinton did – lying about his affair with Monica Lewinsky – was even such a big deal, the GOP ultimately regretted taking things as far as they did. With Trump not even accused of a single crime – not even, so far as has been publicly announced, being investigated for any crime – the peril for Democrats is that much greater. Perhaps that will change when dirty cop-Robert Mueller files his final report, but we have to doubt it. The only thing dirty cop-Mueller is within shouting distance of is a charge of obstruction, and we’d like to see the Justice Department justify stripping the sitting president of his Article II powers just for the sake of bringing an indictment against Donald Trump. It ain’t gonna happen. Starr said that there should be a widespread, national call for impeachment before any proceedings were to begin, even if there were sufficient cause...
Trump Reimposes Sanctions on Iran
by Political Editors:  After pulling the U.S. out of Barack scumbag/liar-nObama’s Iran nuclear appeasement deal in June, on Monday President Donald Trump followed through on the second half of his promise to raise maximum pressure by reimposing international sanctions. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced, “The United States will reimpose sanctions that were lifted as part of the nuclear deal on Iran’s energy, shipbuilding, shipping, and banking sectors.” He added, “These sanctions hit at the core areas of Iran’s economy. They’re necessary to spur changes we seek on the part of the regime. In order to maximize the effect of the president’s pressure campaign, we have worked closely with other countries to cut off Iranian oil exports as much as possible.”

             While some conservatives have complained that the sanctions don’t go far enough, pointing to the fact that eight nations were granted a waiver from the sanctions to continue purchasing oil and gas from Iran, others argue that this gives the U.S. greater room to make the argument that the sanctions are targeted at the regime in Tehran and not the Iranian people. The Wall Street Journal notes, “Even with the waivers, the expectation of sanctions has already taken 1.1 million barrels of Iranian oil a day off the market. That’s a lot of lost income for the Iranian economy. Note, too, that the Administration didn’t spare the European Union from the oil sanctions following its refusal to cooperate with helping the U.S. renegotiate Barack scumbag/liar-nObama’s flawed nuclear deal with Tehran.”
               On the other hand, The Washington Free Beacon reports, “Iran is being given a pass from the administration to continue nuclear projects at the Arak, Bushehr, and Fordow facilities, all contested sites that have been at the center of Tehran’s secretive nuclear enrichment work in the past.” Evidently the Trump administration values economic pressure over tightening other restrictions at this time. We’ll see if that pans out.
               While this latest action may not be perfect, it goes a long way in correcting the course on Iran. scumbag/liar-nObama helped make this mess and Trump is left working to clean it up, and thus far it’s a good start. Europe’s leaders are likely to continue squawking their opposition, but in the long run, their financial ties to the U.S. will motivate them to get in line and follow along. Remember the ultimate goal here is to see the end of the current Iranian regime’s threat.
               Footnote: The Democrats’ favorite anti-Semite, Louis Farrakhan, was in Iran over the weekend, where he declared, “America has never been a democracy and has always leaned towards the wealthy and powerful class.” He then led a crowd of law students in chanting “Death to Israel” and “Death to America.” Perhaps he’d prefer to stay out of our country, then.

ALERT --> Minnesota Elects First Muslim Congresswoman In US History!!!

Minnesota voters sent Somali immigrant Ilhan Omar of the DFL party to Congress on Tuesday night after she defeated Republican candidate Jennifer Zielinski by a 78-22% margin.

Omar and Michigan House candidate Rashida Tlaib (D) both became the first two Muslim-American women to serve in Congress after their election victories on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.

Yesterday Ilhan Omar won her election in Minnesota, becoming the first Muslim woman elected to Congress.

Today, she had to appear before a judge for her hearing regarding ethics violations.

It’s been less than 24 hrs since she won and she’s already in court for her corruption.

2,159 people are talking about this

Omar, along with being the first Muslim women elected to Congress is also the first Somali-American member of Congress, a seat in Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district which was previously held by Keith Ellison, who was the first Muslim ever elected to US Congress. Minnesota’s 5th Congressional district has not elected a Republican to Congress since 1962. The district includes Minneapolis and its surrounding suburbs.

The Minnesota state congresswoman ran a progressive platform which included “Medicare for all,” criminal justice reform and abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Omar, a Somali refugee, came to the U.S. at 12 years old, which is why she often attacks President Trump‘s travel ban against a number of Muslim-majority countries which happen to be terror hotbeds.

In August, Investigative Journalist Laura Loomer confronted both Ilhan and Tlaib, who have both expressed hatred for Jewish people and who are campaigning with pro-HAMAS Linda Sarsour and CAIR, which has been designated as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

When Loomer confronted Tlaib at one of Ilhan’s campaign events, Tlaib assaulted Loomer, and a police report was filed.

Omar’s campaign and election, however, are still clouded in controversy. Omar has been accused of marrying her brother and committing immigration fraud.

The day after her victory, Omar appeared in court to face a judge about the campaign finance violations she has been accused of.

Ilhan Omar was also arrested in 2013 for trespassing.

This is Ilhan Omar.

She won an election last night & is now the first Somali woman elected to US Congress.

This is her mug shot.

Along w/ being a criminal, as you can see, she committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother so he could get a green card.

Good riddance.

Omar has also faced criticism for her ties to CAIR, campaigning with jihadi activist Linda Sarsour, Keith Ellison, who has been accused of domestic violence, and her public display of anti-Semitism, all of which has been either under-reported and ignored by the local Minnesota media.
