Hakeem Jeffries Running Interference 
For Dems As FBI Corruption Scandal Explodes
{} ~ The video opens with Rep Hakeem Jeffries, an extremely partisan anti-American, New York Democrat... wrapping up a false statement about “Democrats and Republicans coming together ‘regartless’ [sic] of partisan politics to accomplish” something. Maybe it’s a probe into Hakeem’s still unexplained dealings with the Awan Pakistani espionage spy ring. Jeffries is then asked by the host if he found Andrew McCabe’s testimony to corroborate the dubious claims of James Comey, that President Trump had asked for loyalty. It’s a ridiculous question in that nobody in their right mind would want a disloyal subversive working in a critical position in their administration. If you’re not going to be loyal, then go find another job. It’s also pointless because Jeffries is a Congressional nobody, who wasn’t worthy of sitting in on the questioning behind closed doors. He’ll still answer and give his opinion, though, based upon the opinions of others...
Gallup: liar-Hillary, liar-nObama 
Most Admired People in 2017
by Trey Sanchez
{} ~ When Gallup asked Americans to choose the most admired man and woman in the world... they chose Barack liar-nObama and liar-Hillary Clinton as they have for at least the last 10 years. Since 2007, and throughout his entire presidency, liar-nObama won the top slot in the Gallup poll. liar-Clinton has been the most admired woman for the last 16 years in a row. However, this is the first year they narrowly claimed the victory. President Trump and former first lady Michelle liar-nObama were hot on their tails...Its very hard for me to believe this poll.
Turkey's Erdogan has eye on becoming global caliph
{} ~ There are increasing signs that Turkey’s dictator, Recep Tayyip Erdogan... aims to turn his nation into the dominant component of a new Islamic caliphate, controlling even more territory than the Ottoman Empire. Islam expert and author Joel Richardson wrote shortly after Turkey’s controversial election in which Erdogan was given virtually unrestricted power that analysts in recent years tried “to shout down warnings that Erdogan has a desire to return to the Ottoman era.” “Today those same critics are taking a fresh look at the man they once made excuses for and even championed,” he wrote...

Fled These 3 Deep Blue States in 2017
by Will Racke
{} ~ Three Democratic-leaning states hemorrhaged hundreds of thousands of people in 2016 and 2017... as crime, high taxes, and, in some cases, crummy weather had residents seeking greener pastures elsewhere. The exodus of residents was most pronounced in New York, which saw about 190,000 people leave the state between July 1, 2016, and July 1, 2017, according to U.S. Census Bureau data released last week. According to the Tax Foundation, New York, Illinois, and California had three of the five highest tax rates expressed as a percentage of per capita income, with residents paying 12.7 percent, 11 percent, and 11 percent, respectively...

Time to Defund the United Nations
by Ben Shapiro
{} ~ Last week, Democrats and many in the mainstream media became highly perturbed by the Trump administration's suggestion that the United States might tie continued foreign aid to support for its agenda abroad. Foreign dictators agreed. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who spent the last year arresting dissidents, announced, "Mr. Trump, you cannot buy Turkey's democratic free will with your dollars, our decision is clear."

Herein lies the great irony of the United Nations: While it's the Mos Eisley of international politics -- a hive of scum and villainy -- and it votes repeatedly to condemn the United States and Israel, the tyrannies that constitute the body continue to oppress their own peoples. Among those who voted last week to condemn the U.S. for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moving its embassy to Jerusalem were North Korea, Iran, Yemen and Venezuela. Why exactly should the United States ever take advice from those nations seriously?

We shouldn't. And we should stop sending cash to an organization that operates as a front for immoral agenda items.

The United Nations spends the vast majority of its time condemning Israel: According to UN Watch, the U.N. Human Rights Council issued 135 resolutions from June 2006 to June 2016, 68 of which were against Israel; the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization only passes resolutions against Israel; and the U.N. General Assembly issued 97 resolutions from 2012 through 2015, 83 of which targeted Israel.

Meanwhile, the U.N. has done nearly nothing with regard to Syria. It has instead suggested that Israel turn over the Golan Heights to the Syrian regime. The U.N. can't even successfully prevent the slaughter of the Rohingya in Myanmar. But they certainly have something say about whether the United States ought to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

One of the great lies of the liar-nObama administration was that diplomacy is a foreign policy. We often heard from it that the only two alternatives were diplomacy and war. That was the stated reason for pursuing a one-sided nuclear deal with Iran that left Iran with burgeoning regional power and legitimacy. "What? Do you want a war or something?" it asked.

But the moment that the Trump administration uses tools of diplomacy, including financial pressure, to achieve American ends, the left complains. Would it prefer war? Diplomacy is a tool, not a foreign policy, and the use of diplomacy to pressure other nations to follow our lead is not only smart but also necessary. That is why the Trump administration was exactly right to negotiate a $285 million cut to the U.N.'s budget. Now we ought to slash our contributions to the counterproductive organization, since we pay one-fifth of the total bill.

The U.N. has always been a foolish fantasy, a League of Nations knockoff that's been about as productive and twice as irritating. It's an outmoded organization that's outlived whatever small usefulness it once had. There's no reason for us to continue cutting checks to prop up regimes that condemn us publicly for exercising the most basic standards of morality.
