Trump Supporter, ‘Foreman Mike’ Rebuilding America Starting with Lake Charles, Foreman Mike says, “God Bless Trump”

Foreman Mike Furey has been brought in to the disaster zone in Lake Charles, LA and he is leading crews of works to rebuild a part of America that seems to have been left behind, to fend for themselves after thee direct hits to their town, leveling some areas.

“They had three hits, first the COVID pandemic and then two huge storms, and this area is now worse than anything I have ever seen in storm damage, “Foreman Furey told me.

There has been little media coverage of the area, with people’s attention being pulled in so many directions so close to a packed Presidential campaign cycle.

An article in the New York Times from Oct. 20, says that people feel America has forgotten them.

One man who has been on the scene for weeks is Furey, and he has taken the opportunity of being there, to start an educational outreach to Americans, and to encourage people to support President Donald J. Trump.

“Share share share what the FAKE NEWS does not want you to see…..,”Furey wrote on Facebook.

Foreman Mike down here in Lake Charles Louisiana, Hurricane Laura the place is absolutely decimated. Follow for update over the next weeks and months, because we want to show you how crews from around the country are coming to rebuild America. If you like what I have done for you before, see what I have coming,” Furey said.

“Here we go again, bigger, better and bolder,” he said.

How You Can Help:

“Here we are rebuilding America and sometimes that comes at a heavy cost. Over my shoulder, you will see a pile of debris that is one of the thousands of homes and businesses destroyed by two hurricanes that came within 6 weeks. Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Delta. There is tremendous damage for hundreds of suare miles. Hundreds of thousands of people without power and phone and internet. It is a terrible situation down here and part of being a responsible patriot is getting involved. We are here today with crews doing utility replacement, phone lines and powerlines all the way down the street behind us. What you need to do folks, is get involved send any money to the Red Cross or Salvation Army- these people need help. They don’t have anywhere to sleep, they have no food. It is a very bad situation. So remember one thing, ou think the chips might be down now? Be glad you are not in Southern Lousianna because we are doing everything we can to get life back to normal. God bless Lousianna, God bless President Trump, we are down here doing a good job for y’all,” he said.

Lake Charles in a way represents America. Rebuilding our infrastructure is going to be a hot topic over the next 4 years, as Democrats, Republicans and Trump has some very different ideas about how America should be rebuilt. Furey is a Conservative and nationally recognized foreman, brought to disaster zones to solve problems. From his Facebook timeline, it is easy to see that he is a Trump supporter, drawing near to many of the experiences that Trump, himself as a building has had.

He is one of a few people covering the area, making plea on behalf of the people, and talking about Trump.

Robin Roberts of Good Morning America recently visited the area to show the despair of the area:

The area will have to be rebuilt.

Furey believes that Trump’s plans to rebuild America will be far more effective for the people and the workers on the front lines, than anything to come out of the Democrat’s “Green New Deal”, which says will be a disaster.

“Repairing Lake Charles infrastructure to keep america up to speed and safe, I have never seen such destruction in 30 years of being a contractor. God bless America, God Bless President Trump, don’t forget to vote!” Furey said.

Fuey says to watch for more updates on the area, and on his plans to help “rebuild America”.

Gen. Mike Flynn said, ” I ask that you stand with me today in renouncing this betrayal of trust” in Op Ed

Gen. Mike Flynn said, ” I ask that you stand with me today in renouncing this betrayal of trust” in Op Ed

The Western Journal published an exclusive op-ed by General Mike Flynn, who is the persecuted former member of both the Barack Obama administration and the Donald J. Trump administration, and who has been a target of the radical left since he boldly defended Americans and America’s interests, disagreeing with Obama about the intentions of foreign terrorists, specifically ISIS.

Barbara Flynn Redgate is the administrator of the Mike Flynn Defense Fund, and an expert on the Government’s corrupt pursuit of her brother, posted Friday:

Flynn, is somewhat under a self imposed “gag” order, due to an activist judge on a personal vendetta, while his case winds it’s way through federal court still, even months after the Government dropped the case, yet Flynn does not allow the 2020 Presidential election go by without making a statement about what is at stake.

From the article, Flynn writes:

“We are a nation founded by leaders who fought tyranny and oppression to ensure that all American citizens be treated fairly and equally across this land.

These constitutional and God-given rights should never be denied, stolen or silenced by false prosecutions or political persecutions driven by fear, hatred or animosity. Those who scowl at the very core of our republic and act from vengeance or revenge against one of us threaten the safety and security of all of us.

Never should our nation, our president or any family or individual be so viciously targeted, maligned, smeared and threatened as we have all felt for the past four years and counting. This unconscionable and seditious direct attack by ideologically driven elitists strikes at the will of the American people who ensure our very freedoms through their vote and daily selfless actions.

We cannot allow the opposing leftist agenda to continue enabling the fleecing of America, peddling connected-influence for cash, exploiting American innovation for an elitist self-serving purpose, wielding official power and influence as a means to ensure personal gain while exercising mass control and selling out our American ideals for ideologies to pursue what the leftists would like as “common and normal.”

These all diminish the power and purpose inherent in “we the people” who constitute our republic.

I ask that you stand with me today in renouncing this betrayal of trust that has burdened our nation and breached the foundation of our American ideals.

Let us proclaim with one united voice across this land that we will hold the line and never allow the rightful power of the citizens of the United States of America to be uprooted, undercut, usurped or held hostage by a coup against our nation, a duly elected president, or any future president of these United States.

Mike Pence Debunked the Charlottesville ‘Very Fine People’ Lie After Kamala Harris Repeated It During VP Debate [VIDEO]

Mike Pence Debunked the Charlottesville ‘Very Fine People’ Lie After Kamala Harris Repeated It During VP Debate [VIDEO]

It was a stunning shock to me that Democratic vice presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) repeated the Charlottesville lie during last night’s vice presidential debate.  She set herself up for an easy slamming by Vice President Mike Pence, because the lie she repeated has been debunked six ways to Sunday.

We have reported on the numerous times Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has repeated the lie that President Donald Trump referred to neo-Nazis and white nationalists as “very fine people.”  He launched his 2020 campaign based on that lie.  Harris said that the details of the lie were the very reason why Biden chose to run.  I personally believe Biden chose to run, because he thought Hillary Clinton was going to win in 2016, and when she didn’t win, he had a “come to Jesus” moment where he realized that all of the corruption he was involved in before, during and after the 2016 election cycle, wasn’t going to be swept under the rug.   I believe Biden ran to avoid prosecution for his crimes, of which there are many, because nobody would expect the Trump Department of Justice (DOJ) to go after the opposing party’s candidate during an election year.

Here’s what happened during Wednesday night’s debate after one of the many times Harris played the race card attacking the president over the Charlottesville lie.

Pence pointed out that President Trump condemned both neo-Nazis and white nationalists during his Charlottesville speech.  And he was 100 percent correct denouncing the “very fine people” lie.

Finally, the Charlottesville “very fine people” hoax has been debunked on the national stage, in front of the entire world, and Biden and the Democrats have Kamala Harris to thank for it.

During the vice presidential debate at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City Harris tried to repeat the lie that President Trump failed to condemn white supremacists at the debate last week, and the lie that Trump called neo-Nazis in the 2017 Charlottesville riots “very fine people.”

Harris said: “Last week, the President of the United States took a debate stage in front of 70 million Americans and refused to condemn white supremacists.”

She then went on to twist Trump’s words about the Proud Boys, who Biden brought up during their debate, claiming Trump told them “stand down and stand by,” using terms similar to those moderator Chris Wallace had used in his question to Trump.

That’s when Harris went off on a tangent of lies about Trump calling all Mexicans rapist, which never happened, a Muslim ban, which never happened, and the Charlottesville lie.

“He called Mexicans “rapists” and “criminals.” He instituted, as his first act, a “Muslim ban.”  He — on the issue of Charlottesville, where people were peacefully protesting the need for racial justice, where a young woman* was killed, and on the other side, there were neo-Nazis, carrying tiki torches, shouting racial epithets, antisemitic slurs, and Donald Trump, when asked about it, said: “There were fine people on both sides.” This is who we have as the President of the United States — and America, you deserve better. Joe Biden will be a president who brings our country together and recognizes the beauty in our diversity, and the fact that we have so much more in common than what separates us.”

Wednesday night’s moderator, Susan Page of USA Today,gave Pence a chance to respond to Harris’ lies:

“You know, I think this is one of the things that makes people dislike the media so much in this country, Susan, is that you selectively edit — just like Senator Harris did — the comments that President Trump and I and others on our side of the aisle make. I mean — Senator Harris conveniently omitted, after the president made comments about people on either side of the debate over monuments, he condemned the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists, and has done so repeatedly. You’re concerned that he “doesn’t condemn neo-Nazis”? President Trump has Jewish grandchildren! His daughter and son-in-law are Jewish. This is a president who respects and cherishes all of the American people.”

WATCH: (h/t Breitbart)

In fact, no past president or presidential candidate has condemned hate groups more than Donald Trump, and yet the media continues to ask him if he does.  The dirty little secret is that’s a tactic left-wing news activist employ.  They’re not actually asking a question, but are in fact making a declaration statement to gin up anger and hostility against Trump for being a racist, even though he’s never said nor done anything racist.

Pence was correct. Trump said during the Charlottesville speech that those hate group should be “condemned totally.”  His words, not mine.

Here’s video footage of where President Trump condemned the neo-Nazis and white nationalists, the part that Pence so eloquently pointed out that CNN and Democrats edited out just so that they could claim Trump called them “very fine people.”

WATCH:

For liberals reading this who don’t believe their eyes and ears, click here’ to read the full transcript of Trump’s Charlottesville speech, which was published by the leftist leaning Politico website.  Here’s how the condemnation went down:

REPORTER: George Washington and Robert E. Lee are not the same.

TRUMP: Oh no, George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down – excuse me. Are we going to take down, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him? Okay, good. Are we going to take down his statue? He was a major slave owner. Are we going to take down his statue? You know what? It’s fine, you’re changing history, you’re changing culture, and you had people – and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally – but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats – you had a lot of bad people in the other group too. [emphasis added]

Incidentally, the Fake News media like CNN and MSNBC will never show you video of then Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Senator Joe Biden (D-DE) referring to members of a KKK-affiliated group as having “many fine people” in their membership.

WATCH:

President Trump started to correct Biden when he, too, brought up the Charlottesville “very fine people” hoax at last week’s first presidential debate, however he didn’t have an opportunity to respond completely, and didn’t return to the issue later.  I think that was a mistake, because the Democrats used it to further the lie that Trump never condemned hate groups.

After his reply, Pence then launched right into a criticism of Harris’s record as a prosecutor in California each as District Attorney for San Francisco and California Attorney General, pointing out that Harris’ conviction record showed a pattern of disproportionate prosecution and convictions of black Americans, and did nothing about criminal justice reform for minorities when she had the chance.  President Trump did prison reform that many past presidents said they wanted to do but never came through the way the Trump administration did.  When Trump signed The First Step Act he reversed much of the damage done by Senator Joe Biden’s 1994 Crime Bill that President Bill Clinton signed into law.  That bill incarcerated thousands of black Americans for long prison sentences over non-violent crimes.  Trump’s First Step Act gave a second chance in life for many black inmates sent to prison via the law that Biden wrote.

Amazon Bans Books Mentioning Transgenderism as a Mental Disorder Even While It’s Listed in the DSM-5

Amazon Bans Books Mentioning Transgenderism as a Mental Disorder Even While It’s Listed in the DSM-5

Fahrenheit 451 was the first full book I ever read.  I’ll be honest.  I only read it because of a computer game of the same title.  As a young kid, the game was pretty cool, and when I heard it was named after a book that everyone else in the world knew about, I decided to see what the hubbub was all about.  It bears a clever title in that 451 degrees Fahrenheit is the temperature that paper starts to burn.  The book is about a dystopian future where the government bans all books so that the great unwashed won’t be able to read them.  And they didn’t just ban books, they burned them so they no longer existed.

Amazon, arguably the world’s largest bookseller, has decided that it will no longer allow the sale of books that teach that transgenderism and other sexual identities or orientations make any claims that they are conditions caused by mental illness.  Yet, they still allow for sale a book titled The GayBC’s listed as “A joyful celebration of LGBTQ+ vocabulary for kids of all ages!

The bookseller announced the policy after Republican lawmakers asked the company why they pulled the sale of Ryan T. Anderson’s 2018 book, “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Movement.”

That book, which sat on Amazon’s bestsellers list, is no longer available for purchase at Amazon at all, period, full stop.

But you can still buy a copy of Adolf Hitler’s Main Kampf where the socialist dictator plotted and planned to take over the world on Amazon either through the company or through third-party sellers.

In a letter sent to Republican Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Mike Braun (R-IN), Amazon responded by saying, “As a bookseller, we provide our customers with access to a variety of viewpoints, including books that some customers may find objectionable.”

“Amazon works hard to ensure customers have a great shopping experience, and access to the widest and most diverse cross-section of written and spoken word in retail today,” the letter continued. “We reserve the right not to sell certain content. All retailers make decisions about what selection they choose to offer, as do we.”

The letter added, “As to your specific question about ‘When Harry Became Sally,’ we have chosen not to sell books that frame LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness.”  This even though homosexuality was listed by the American Psychiatric Association, the largest psychiatric organization in the world, as a mental disorder up until the politicians got involved, the same type of politicians who today demand that we trust the science, and without any “science” involved they just reversed their stance on the issue back in 2012.  It’s when you read their statement saying “We will no longer insist on a label of sickness for individuals who insist that they are well and demonstrate no generalized impairment in social effectiveness,” followed by claiming the APA supports “civil rights legislation at local, state, and federal levels that would ensure homosexual citizens the same protections now guaranteed to others,” that you realize it was a purely political reason for the 180-degree turn.  If Schizophrenia suddenly because very popular in pop culture these clowns would more-than-likely do a 180 on that too.

The author took to social media to discuss Amazon’s crazy move [pun intended].

“Amazon has finally responded. Everyone agrees that gender dysphoria is a serious condition that causes great suffering. There is a debate, however, which Amazon is seeking to shut down, about how best to treat patients who experience gender dysphoria.”

Don’t forget folks, gender dysphoria is listed in the Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), a manual published by the American Psychiatric Association to diagnose mental conditions.

He followed up with another tweet.

“Gender dysphoria,” Anderson explained, “is listed in the APA’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, which Amazon sells. So the real deciding factor seems to be whether you endorse hormones and surgery as the proper treatment or counseling.”

“Amazon appears to have never read my book, but relied on hit pieces. As I pointed out before: ‘Please quote the passage where I ‘call them mentally ill.’ You can’t quote that passage because it doesn’t exist.”

Jeffrey Trachtenberg, of the Wall Street Journal, said the bookseller’s decision comes as “the nation’s largest tech platforms are under increased scrutiny regarding the decisions they make over which content is acceptable.”

It sounds like the insane asylum patients are complaining so much to politicians and corporations that the corporate board rooms fear political influence that could harm their bottom line so they take the easy way out and say “screw you” to the 60% of the people who buy their stuff because the Democrats are running the show now.  That, and because the leftist tech tyrants agree to be the de facto government dishing out punishments to those who dare go up against the Woke Supremacy.

“The senators, in their letter dated February 24, characterized Amazon’s decision to remove the book as a signal ‘to conservative Americans that their views are not welcome on its platforms,'” Trachtenberg wrote.

Ted Cruz Asks For DOJ Probe Into New York Nursing Home Deaths Scandal

Ted Cruz Asks For DOJ Probe Into New York Nursing Home Deaths Scandal

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and eight other Republican lawmakers on the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee have urged Chairman Dick Durbin (D-IL) to open an investigation into Governor Andrew Cuomo’s increasingly troublesome nursing some death scandal.

Wednesday night, the GOP lawmakers sent a letter asking Durbin to schedule hearings into the conduct of the Cuomo administration since it has been reported that it intentionally withheld the COVID-19 death numbers from nursing homes after Cuomo forced COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes with the most vulnerable of our society for this pandemic virus, the elderly.

“The American people deserve to know the extent to which Governor Cuomo and his senior staff violated the civil rights of New York seniors, lied to the Department of Justice about their actions, and violated federal civil and criminal laws in the process,” the lawmakers wrote.

“That so many people needlessly lost their lives because of the failed policies of Governor Cuomo’s administration — an administration that many have lauded over the past year — is tragic and deserves a full investigation and accounting.”

Of course, you just know that Durbin and his cohorts in the party are going to use the Cuomo administration’s lie that they did it because President Donald Trump was pressuring them on Twitter.

The GOP Senators who signed with Cruz were Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), John Cornyn (R-TX), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Chuck Grassley (R-IA),  Josh Hawley (R-MO), Mike Lee (R-UT),  and Thom Tillis (R-NC).

In the letter sent to Durbin, the senators said they expect Merrick Garland, President Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee, to commit to investigating this growing scandal.

“When Judge Garland testifies before this Committee, we expect him to commit the Department of Justice to fully investigating this cover-up to determine whether any criminal laws were violated and to prosecute any violations,” they wrote.  Not that it will ever happen, because while Democrats make things up against Republicans out of thin air, they rarely ever go after one of their own, and the tyrant governor of New York is most definitely one of their own.

Richard Azzopardi, a spokesman for the governor, slimed on about Cruz’s request, “Every death in this pandemic is a tragedy and shame on the Treason Caucus for exploiting them to distract from fermenting the Capitol insurrection that resulted in the death of a police officer.”

Can you believe that?  This putz (a little cultural appropriation) tried to dilute the scandal by referring to a fake scandal against Senator Cruz where in the wake of the Capitol riot on January 6, the Democrats have tried to accuse Cruz of helping to incite the riot while he was inside the Capitol building doing exactly what the Democrats did for the last three Republican White House victories.  Azzopardi accused Cruz and the other Republicans of doing exactly what he did in the context of his accusation.  The Democrats are sick people.

Last week we reported that a Cuomo top aide, Melissa DeRosa, admitted to a bunch of state Democrats lawmakers that they withheld the COVID-19 nursing home death count over the fear that the numbers would be “used against us” by federal authorities.  Isn’t that called obstruction?  I thought the Democrats really hated obstruction.

This scandal was made public after New York Attorney General Letitia James reported that she discovered that COVID-19 nursing home deaths were 50 percent higher than Cuomo and the administration claimed.

Also on Wednesday Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens) said he received a threatening phone call from Cuomo last week telling the assemblyman that he’d be “destroyed” if he didn’t help contain the situation.  Can you imagine?

Kim said he was “in the middle of bathing my kids,” when Cuomo asked him to write up a statement that would say that DeRosa told state lawmakers that they would comply with federal prosecutors.

Folks, that’s manufacturing false evidence, something the Democrats accused Trump of doing, except unlike the former president, Cuomo allegedly actually did if Kim is telling the truth.

Kim said that during the call Cuomo threatened him saying,  “You have not seen my wrath. I have been biting my tongue for months.”  The assemblyman said Cuomo then told him, “I can tell the whole world what a bad person you are and you will be finished.” Kim said, and concluded that the governor told him, “You will be destroyed.”

This is worse than any of the lies the Democrats made up about Republicans and apparently it’s a real scandal.

Last month, Cruz introduced an amendment to the COVID-19 relief package that called for a Department Of Justice investigation to determine if officials like Cuomo could be criminally or civilly liable for forcing COVID-19 patients into nursing homes.  The senator from Texas shouldn’t hold his breath because there is no way, no how that the Biden DOJ will ever hold Democrats accountable for what they did that ended up killing thousands of seniors.

Cuomo made good on his threats.  During a press conference on Wednesday, the governor attacked both Assemblyman Kim and the New York Post for having the gall to expose the nursing home scandal.

It now appears that fellow Democrats, who put up with Cuomo’s arrogance for way too long during the COVID-19 crisis, are now turning on him.  On Tuesday, nine state Assembly Democrats accused the governor of federal obstruction of justice in a letter that asks that Cuomo’s COVID-19 emergency powers be stripped.  Multiple state Senators asked for the same.

I am admittedly a partisan conservative, but I don’t take too much pleasure watching someone have the world come down on them, but in this case, I think it’s completely justified.  Andrew Cuomo has been an obnoxious and arrogant tyrant who not only botched his handling of the pandemic for New Yorkers and not only tried to blame everyone else for his and his administration’s negligence over the nursing home debacle, but he actually wrote a book about what an awesome job he did as governor handling the COVID-19 pandemic.

But, absolutely nothing will happen on the federal level as we now know that President Biden chose not to discuss the scandal during his White House meeting with the governor on Friday, saying “it was not a focus of their conversation or a topic.”

For those of you reading this who are admitted leftists I want you to do something for me.  I want you to close your eyes, take some deep, slow breaths, and once your mind has been cleared of everything, think to yourself, what if it was Donald Trump.

Full Pardons go to Stone, Manafort, Kushner and 26 Others in New Pardon Wave

Full Pardons go to Stone, Manafort, Kushner and 26 Others in New Pardon Wave

The latest list grants 26 full pardons and commutes all or part of the sentence of three additional individuals after Trump on Tuesday issued 15 pardons and five commutations.

From Tuesday, the White House released the following statement:

Today, President Donald J. Trump granted Full Pardons to 15 individuals and commuted part or all of the sentences of an additional 5 individuals.

Alfonso Costa — President Trump granted a full pardon to Alfonso Costa, a dentist from Pittsburgh.  Dr. Costa’s request for clemency was supported by Dr. Ben Carson and Jerome Bettis, as well as by numerous business associates, patients, and community leaders from Pittsburgh.  Dr. Costa pled guilty to one count of health care fraud related to false billing, took full responsibility for his conduct, served two years of probation, and paid nearly $300,000 in fines and restitution.  He has devoted much of his adult life to service to his community, including serving on the board of the Pittsburgh Opera, and doing significant service for children and the underprivileged.

Alfred Lee Crum — President Trump granted Alfred Lee Crum a full pardon.  Mr. Crum, who is now 89, pled guilty in 1952—when he was 19 years old—to helping his wife’s uncle illegally distill moonshine in Oklahoma.  Mr. Crum served three years of probation, and paid a $250 fine.  Mr. Crum has maintained a clean record and a strong marriage for nearly 70 years, attended the same church for 60 years, raised four children, and regularly participated in charity fundraising events.  Former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Oklahoma Brian Kuester supported Mr. Crum’s request for a pardon.

Crystal Munoz — Today, President Trump commuted Crystal Munoz’s remaining term of supervised release, having previously commuted her sentence of incarceration after she had served 12 years in prison.  Alice Johnson, the Texas A&M Criminal Defense Clinic, and the Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation are among the many who supported clemency for Ms. Munoz.  Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi supports the President’s further act of clemency today. Ms. Munoz was convicted of conspiracy to distribute marijuana based on her role in a marijuana smuggling ring.  During her time in prison, she mentored people working to better their lives, volunteered with a hospice program, and demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to rehabilitation.

Tynice Nichole Hall — President Trump has commuted the remainder of Tynice Nichole Hall’s term of supervised release.  He previously commuted her term of incarceration after she had served nearly 14 years of an 18-year sentence for allowing her apartment to be used to distribute drugs.  Alice Johnson, The Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation, and The Ladies of Hope Ministries are among the many who supported clemency for Ms. Hall. Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi supports the President’s further act of clemency today. While in prison, Ms. Hall completed a number of job-training programs and apprenticeships, as well as coursework towards a college degree.  In addition, Ms. Hall taught prison educational programs to other inmates.  She has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has worked hard to rehabilitate herself.

Judith Negron — President Trump has today commuted the remainder of Judith Negron’s term of supervised release.  He previously commuted her term of incarceration after she had served 8 years of her sentence.  Alice Johnson, the Clemency for All Non-Violent Drug Offenders Foundation, Change.org, and the Warden at Aliceville Federal Correctional Institution have all supported clemency for Ms. Negron.  Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi supports the President’s further act of clemency today. Ms. Negron is a wife and mother who was sentenced to 35 years for her role as a minority-owner of a healthcare company engaged in a scheme to defraud the Federal Government.  During her incarceration, Ms. Negron dedicated her time to improving her life as well as the lives of her fellow inmates.  She completed hundreds of hours of educational programs, served as a tutor, and mentored other inmates.  Her acts of selflessness won her the praise of her prison warden.

Steve Stockman — Today, President Trump commuted the remaining prison sentence of Steve Stockman.  Former Representatives Bob McEwen and Bob Barr, along with James Dobson and L. Brent Bozell are among the many public figures who have called for Mr. Stockman’s release from incarceration on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.  Mr. Stockman is 64 and has underlying pre-existing health conditions that place his health at greater risk during the COVID epidemic, and he has already contracted COVID while in prison.  Mr. Stockman, who was twice a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Texas’s 9th congressional district from 1995 to 1997 and Texas’s 36th congressional district from 2013 to 2015, was convicted in 2018 of misuse of charitable funds.  Mr. Stockman has served more than two years of his ten-year sentence and will remain subject to a period of supervised release and an order requiring that he pay more than $1,000,000 in restitution.

Duncan Hunter – At the request of many Members of Congress, President Trump granted a full pardon to Duncan Hunter.  His pardon is also supported by former Commissioner of the Federal Election Commission Bradley Smith.

Mr. Hunter has dedicated much of his adult life to public service.  Mr. Hunter represented California’s 50th Congressional District from 2013 to 2020.  Prior to his time in Congress, Mr. Hunter was an officer in the United States Marine Corps.  Inspired to enlist after the September 11, 2001 attacks, Mr. Hunter saw combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

In 2019, Mr. Hunter pled guilty to one count of misusing campaign funds, an offense that could have been handled as a civil case via the Federal Election Commission, according to former FEC Commissioner Bradley Smith.  He was sentenced to 11 months’ imprisonment set to begin in January 2021.

Chris Collins – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Chris Collins, at the request of many Members of Congress.

Mr. Collins served in Congress for nearly seven years, representing the people of Western New York from 2013 to 2019.  Mr. Collins spent his early career as a successful businessman and entrepreneur, before devoting his life to public service.  In 2007, Mr. Collins was elected County Executive for Erie County, New York, a position he held for one four-year term, and in 2012 the people of New York’s 27th congressional district elected Mr. Collins to the U.S. House of Representatives.  He was subsequently re-elected to this seat three times.  During his tenure in Congress, Mr. Collins was known for his particular focus on the wellbeing of small businesses, agriculture, and sciences.

In 2019, Mr. Collins pled guilty to the charges of conspiring to commit securities fraud and making false statements to the FBI.  Mr. Collins is currently serving his 26-month sentence.

Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean – Today, President Trump granted full pardons to Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. These former Border Patrol Agents have been supported by one hundred members of Congress, including Rep. Louie Gohmert, Rep. Steve King, Rep. Ted Poe, Rep. Paul Gosar, Rep. Brian Babin, as well as the U.S. Border Control Foundation and the Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund.

Mr. Ramos participates in numerous community activities and charities, and Mr. Compean is active in his local church.

Both men served as Border Patrol Agents and put themselves in harm’s way to help secure our southern border with Mexico.  On one such occasion in 2005, they stopped an illegal alien trafficking 700 pounds of marijuana. When the illegal alien—who was thought to be armed—resisted arrest, Mr. Ramos shot the suspect, who fled back across the border.  For this, Mr. Ramos and Mr. Compean were charged and convicted of assault, using a firearm during a crime of violence, and deprivation of civil rights.  After they were sentenced to 11 and 12 years imprisonment, respectively, their case gained widespread attention.

One hundred members of Congress, as well as the organizations above, supported Mr. Ramos’ and Mr. Compean’s release from prison. The Senate Judiciary Committee held hearings on the excessive sentence imposed on the former agents. And President George W. Bush ultimately commuted these sentences with strong bipartisan support.

George Papadopoulos – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to George Papadopoulos.  Mr. Papadopoulos was charged with a process-related crime, one count of making false statements, in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.  Notably, Mueller stated in his report that he found no evidence of collusion in connection with Russia’s attempts to interfere in the election.  Nonetheless, the Special Counsel’s team still charged Mr. Papadopoulos with this process-related crime.

At the time that Mr. Papadopoulos allegedly made the false statements, he was not represented by counsel, and, after he was arrested, Mr. Papadopoulos gave additional information on his prior statements to the Special Counsel. Today’s pardon helps correct the wrong that Mueller’s team inflicted on so many people.

Alex van der Zwaan – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Alex van der Zwaan.  His pardon is supported by former Rep. Trey Gowdy.

Mr. van der Zwaan was charged with a process-related crime, one count of making false statements, in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. None of his underlying conduct was alleged to have been unlawful, nor did prosecutors note any prior criminal history. Mr. van der Zwaan is a Dutch national who voluntarily returned to the United States to correct his statements and surrendered his passport upon entry.

Nicholas Slatten, Paul Slough, Evan Liberty, and Dustin Heard – Today, President Trump granted full pardons to Nicholas Slatten, Paul Slough, Evan Liberty, and Dustin Heard.  The pardon of these four veterans is broadly supported by the public, including Pete Hegseth, and elected officials such as Rep. Louie Gohmert, Rep. Paul Gosar, Rep. Ralph Norman, Rep. Bill Flores, Rep. Brian Babin, Rep. Michael Burgess, Rep. Daniel Webster, Rep. Steve King, and Rep. Ted Yoho.

Mr. Slatten, Mr. Slough, Mr. Liberty, and Mr. Heard have a long history of service to the Nation.  Mr. Slatten was inspired to serve his country after the attacks of September 11, 2001, and served two tours in Iraq with the 82nd Airborne Division.  Mr. Slough served in the United States Army and deployed to Iraq with his National Guard unit.  Mr. Liberty served in the United States Marine Corps and protected United States Embassies abroad.  Mr. Heard served in the United States Marine Corps during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

These veterans were working in Iraq in 2007 as security contractors responsible for securing the safety of United States personnel. When the convoy attempted to establish a blockade outside the “Green Zone,” the situation turned violent, which resulted in the unfortunate deaths and injuries of Iraqi civilians. Initial charges against the men were dismissed, but they were eventually tried and convicted on charges ranging from first degree murder to voluntary manslaughter. On appeal, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that additional evidence should have been presented at Mr. Slatten’s trial. Further, prosecutors recently disclosed—more than 10 years after the incident—that the lead Iraqi investigator, who prosecutors relied heavily on to verify that there were no insurgent victims and to collect evidence, may have had ties to insurgent groups himself.

Weldon Angelos – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Weldon Angelos.  Mr. Angelos’ pardon is supported by Senator Mike Lee, Senator Rand Paul, Alice Johnson, former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolman, and others.

Mr. Angelos is an active criminal justice reform advocate and champion of giving second chances. Because of mandatory minimums, Mr. Angelos was sentenced in 2002 to 55 years’ imprisonment for selling marijuana and carrying a handgun in the course of dealing.  The presiding judge called this excessive sentence “unjust and cruel and even irrational.”

Mr. Angelos was eventually released by judicial order after serving 13 years in prison, and committed to changing the world for the better through criminal justice reform advocacy. His story has been cited as an inspiration for sentencing reform, including the First Step Act, and he participated in a Prison Reform Summit at the White House in 2018.  In his own words, Mr. Angelos wants “to become whole again and put the bad choices in the past and continue changing the world for the better.”

Philip Lyman – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Philip Lyman.  Mr. Lyman’s pardon is supported by Senator Mike Lee, Former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, and other notable members of the Utah community.

Mr. Lyman is known to be a man of integrity and character who was serving as a county commissioner in Utah when he was subjected to selective prosecution for protesting the Bureau of Land Management’s closure of the Recapture Canyon to ATV riders.  He had no other criminal history, but he was arrested and sentenced to 10 days in prison and nearly $96,000 in restitution.

Otis Gordon – Today, President Trump granted a full pardon to Otis Gordon.  Mr. Gordon’s pardon is supported by Senator Tim Scott.

Mr. Gordon has become a Pastor at Life Changer’s International Ministries since his conviction for possession with intent to distribute. In 2015, in the wake of the shooting at a Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina, Mr. Gordon led a prayer session at the United States Capitol. Mr. Gordon mentors at-risk youths in his community.  Senator Tim Scott describes Mr. Gordon as “a model citizen” since his release and “focused on helping young men avoid the same traps he once fell in.”

Philip Esformes – Today, President Trump commuted the term of imprisonment of Philip Esformes, while leaving the remaining aspects of his sentence, including supervised release and restitution, intact.  This commutation is supported by former Attorneys General Edwin Meese and Michael Mukasey, as well as former Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson.  In addition, former Attorneys General Edwin Meese, John Ashcroft, and Alberto Gonzalez, as well as other notable legal figures such as Ken Starr, have filed in support of his appeal challenging his conviction on the basis of prosecutorial misconduct related to violating attorney-client privilege.

While in prison, Mr. Esformes, who is 52, has been devoted to prayer and repentance and is in declining health.

GOP Senators: Obama Era Policies Kept DACA Illegal Alien Accused of Killing 4 Officers in U.S.

GOP Senators: Obama Era Policies Kept DACA Illegal Alien Accused of Killing 4 Officers in U.S.

Ivan Robles Navejas, a 28-year-old illegal alien from Mexico killed 4 police officers using his car. The suspect was drunk at the time, but he should not have been in the country at all.

Navejas had been arrested for DUI before but the Obama/Biden administration allowed him to stay anyway. He was charged with six counts of intoxication, assault with a vehicle, and three counts of intoxicated vehicular manslaughter.

The GOP Senators include Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Josh Hawley (R-MO), Kelly Loeffler (R-GA). The others are Ted Cruz (R-TX), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Mike Lee (R-UT).

They sent a letter to the DHS wanting information on Navejas, want to know his complete criminal record, and why he was not deported.

The suspect drove into a group of the Thin Blue Line motorcycle club, killing four.  Investigators say that he was drunk and hour before the crash.

The problem is that Democrats do not consider DUI to be a crime worthy of deportation even if they have already killed someone.

Those killed include:

  • 39-year-old Niles, Illinois Police Sgt. Joseph Lazo
  • 48-year-old retired officer Joseph “GT” Paglia of Chicago
  • 74-year-old retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jerry “Wings” Harbour of Houston
  • 20-something retired U.S. Army officer Michael “Psycho” White of Chicago

The letter the Senators sent reads in part:

Furthermore, we were also disturbed to read that Mr. Navejas was shielded from deportation with status granted under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2013. After his DACA status subsequently expired in 2015, he remained unlawfully present in the United States without consequence and was afforded the opportunity to re-offend. Media reports indicate that Mr. Navejas was charged with driving under the influence in 2016, but ICE did not pursue deportation action against him. Instead, the agency exercised prosecutorial discretion because the Obama administration did not consider a DUI arrest to be a serious offense warranting deportation. [Emphasis added]

Mr. Navejas’ encounter with immigration officials following his charge for driving under the influence in 2016 should have been enough to see him placed in removal proceedings, but ICE was hindered by the Obama administration’s guidance on civil immigration enforcement priorities. Under that guidance, the Obama administration did not deem an arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol to be a priority. The guidance further allowed for the use of discretion when taking enforcement action against those unlawfully present in the United States. ICE used that discretion in this case by choosing not to take enforcement action. [Emphasis added]

The Senators pointed out that even though he was arrested for DUI in 2016. In 2018, Navejas was arrested for aggravated assault after allegedly pinning a man to a vehicle, assaulting him, and biting off a portion of his ear.

I guess biting off someone’s ear was a misdemeanor during the Obama/Biden years. This is not the way it used to be. You had to obey the laws in order to remain here.

You have to understand, Democrats are interested in building voters. Protecting citizens does not get you elected. It is difficult to understand why we allow our laws to be broken so freely. Or maybe not. The rioters and illegal aliens are their base.

By ignoring their criminal behavior, they secure their votes. Illegal aliens will find it easier to vote with all mail in ballots.

Tom Cotton wrote:

“Ivan Navejas should have been deported for his crimes, which culminated in the alleged murder of several members of the Thin Blue Line Motorcycle Club. Four Americans are now dead from a failure to deport this dangerous criminal. We deserve to know why.”

Trump tweets ‘VETO!’ after Senate votes to block his border emergency declaration

Trump tweets ‘VETO!’ after Senate votes to block his border emergency declaration

Republican senators who worried about executive overreach dealt an embarrassing blow to Trump over his national emergency declaration.

On Thursday the Senate voted against President Trump’s national emergency with a 59-41 vote. It was a huge bipartisan effort in fear that this emergency might be a stretch of the presidents’ power.

Trump has already said he will reject the bill. Immediately after the vote, Trump tweeted, “Veto”.

ANd then,

Trump tried to get more GOP support but the following Republicans voted against the emergency declaration:

  • Lamar Alexander of Tennessee
  • Roy Blunt of Missouri
  • Susan Collins of Maine
  • Mike Lee of Utah
  • Jerry Moran of Kansas
  • Lisa Murkowski of Alaska
  • Rand Paul of Kentucky
  • Rob Portman of Ohio
  • Mitt Romney of Utah
  • Marco Rubio of Florida
  • Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania
  • Roger Wicker of Mississippi

The veto would be the first of his presidency. Neither chamber appears to have enough support to overcome Trump’s opposition with a two-thirds majority vote.

It is unclear now if House leaders will push for a vote to override the president’s veto. Rep. Joaquin Castro, a Texas Democrat who introduced the House resolution, told reporters Thursday that he will push for another vote even though it will be “very tough” to reach a veto-proof majority. He called it a “consequential constitutional vote.”

President Trump and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen have been working to provide reasons why the border is at the point of a national emergency.

The truth is that the politics and policies of open borders have failed the American people. Our broken system endures, and the ongoing humanitarian and security crisis at our Southwest Border leaves many minors and families at extreme risk of being exploited by traffickers, human smugglers, gangs, and other nefarious actors seeking to profit at their expense,” said Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen M. Nielsen. “Activist courts, congressional inaction, and criminals intent on breaking our laws stand in the way of confronting illegal and uncontrolled migration threatening our safety and security. What was a crisis, is now a full-fledged emergency.”

“This cannot be a partisan issue,” Nielsen continued. “Every DHS Secretary since the Department’s inception has sounded the alarm about our unsecured border and its consequences. The American people and our law enforcement personnel rightfully demand effective border security: building the wall, strengthening our laws, and giving the men and women serving on the front lines the tools and resources they need to keep Americans safe. To that end, this Department pledges our unwavering resolve to confronting present and ever-evolving future threats to our national security at our Southwest Border.”

Thursday Trump also tweeted,

In a statement after the vote, Pelosi said Congress voted “on an overwhelming and bipartisan basis” to reject a “sham emergency declaration.” 

“President Trump’s emergency declaration is an unlawful power grab that does violence to the Constitution and fundamentally alters the separation of powers,” she said. “This is not an emergency, and the Congress has declared in a strong bipartisan voice that the President’s fearmongering doesn’t make it one.”

This battle for wall is far from over.

UNFUNNY VALENTINE: Rosie O’Donnell Freaks Out, We Are Going To Need an Intervention

UNFUNNY VALENTINE: Rosie O’Donnell Freaks Out, We Are Going To Need an Intervention

The Marxist left is very good at is refusing to accept the reality and the consequences of their unpopularity and very good at covering up how ignorant they are about how the country works. Marxists in Hollywood especially live in a fantasy world of dress-up politicians with situational ethics. There is no better example of leftism dysfunction than former stand-up comedian Rosie O’Donnell, who hasn’t been funny in over 20 years.  Bitter, nasty, and hell-bent on revenge, but not funny.

“well {BLEEP} u all – traitors – cult members – reality deniers u have no shame – u tossed ur legacy in with his – the nation will not forget ur betrayal – he tried to kill mike pence for gods sake – what will it take – damn it #TrumpIsGuilty,” O’Donnell posted on Twitter, in response to hearing that that President Donald J. Trump was acquitted for the second time for the second crazy impeachment.

O’Donnell added in some extra drama that Trump “tried to kill” Pence, and everyone is guilty. Apparently, O’Donnell believes it is acceptable to make things up and throw charges at people.  Isn’t that what Trump and his supporters have faced now for close to 5 years from the deranged left.  And what are they so upset about?  Is it his “America First” policies?  Likely not.  Is it the way he distributes power to the little people? Likely yes.

We need an intervention.  Rosie your leftist and power binging has hurt us in the following ways:

O’Donnell, who has made herself and her life a public spectacle, has admitted that she struggles with mental illness, substance abuse. It is a matter of fact that O’Donnell, who is a lesbian, has been reported for beating her wives in fits of rage and is estranged from a number of her adopted children out of their concern for her violent rampages.

That is quite a background for the left’s political idol who fantasize boldly that all white men are violent rapists.

O’Donnell associates with known pedophiles from the Lincoln Project, without any shame at all:

And she believes that Trump is somehow the root of her problems.

So how did a stand-up comedian and popular talk show host devolved into a woman who desires to look like a 1950’s Grandfather and going around her privileged life tilting and windmills and raging incoherently?

Consider how an addict reacts to a loss of power and control over others.  There is your answer.

Are we safe as a country with people like O’Donnell? How did she get this way?  Why is her violence acceptable?

Because of Cultural Marxism, and apparently, her soft mind has been introduced to narrative shaping tactics by the left that drove her to mental illness.  She is a wealthy celebrity with the world at her feet, who gave up her life to be a foot soldier for the furthest left and most violent political agenda the world has known.

She believes she is a humanitarian, while she pushes public policy for Americans that have killed far over 40 million people.  Her political party has radicalized the death of the most helpless humans on earth, babies, who are defenseless. Yet, her rage is placed with people who voted for jobs and security for their families and children.

It is a tragedy in many parts that seems to have ongoing curtain calls and no final act. O’Donnell asks, “What will it take?”

And America should be asking her that question;  What will it take until you stop attacking Americans, America, and our institutions and start to seek some treatment for your problems?

O’Donnell is obsessed with Trump and Trump supporters and completely intolerant of classic liberal ideas that America’s liberty was built upon, which are due process, freedom of speech, and freedom of expression.

We should be crying at her behavior, not the other way around.

O’Donnell wants to claim that she has a superior right to be bigoted, intolerant, and abusive because she was abused. No. She doesn’t.  That narrative needs to stop.  Many of us were abused and chose not to our families, our children, or abuse fellow Americans.

Nothing about O’Donnell is unique or special or is funny, and nothing about the left is fun. We should be enjoying our beautiful country and peaceful lives, and instead, we are dealing with the left’s fluctuating power-drunk binges or their DTS, withdrawal delirium. We are being abused, and the country has PTSD from trying to survive.

We need to send the left all a “Dear John letter” and say, it’s not us, it’s you. We want a divorce. We wish to emancipate ourselves from your dwelling. You are not good people.

We need an intervention like that in the national public square.

Oh, and Happy Valentines Day, Trump won again, everyone who understands reality knew he would. This isn’t really a high school musical.   Permit us these fleeting moments of happiness, because the Lord knows what you will come up with to abuse us with next.

Get some help Rosie.
