Globalist-Minded Media Fraught Over “Deliberate” and “Well Prepared” Acumen of Secretary T-Rex…

The Conservative Treehouse ^ | Feb. 19, 2017 | Sundance 

We are so fortunate Rex Tillerson was willing to take on the role of Secretary of State. T-Rex’s approach is giving the pearl-clutching leftists fits, as outlined in this article by ABC which displays their collective angst.
Via ABC) [..] In his first weeks as America’s top diplomat, Tillerson has gone to great lengths to avoid attracting attention, despite a growing perception in Washington that the State Department is being sidelined by a power-centric White House.

STUDY: Trump’s Border Wall Could Save $64 Billion Over 10 Years

breitbart ^ | BOB PRICE 

Camarota offers the following conclusions from his study:

There is also agreement that immigrants who come to America with modest levels of education create significantly more in costs for government than they pay in taxes. A recent NAS study estimated the lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus services used) of immigrants by education. Averaging the cost estimates from that study and combining them with the education levels of illegal border-crossers shows a net fiscal drain of $74,722 per illegal crosser.2 The above figures are only for the original illegal immigrants and do notinclude any costs for their U.S.-born descendants. If we use the NAS projections that include the descendants, the fiscal drain for border-crossers grows to $94,391 each. If a border wall prevented 160,000 to 200,000 illegal crossings (excluding descendants) in the next 10 years it would be enough to pay for the estimated $12 to $15 billion costs of the wall. Newly released research by the Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA) done for the Department of Homeland Security indicates that 170,000 illegal immigrants crossed the border successfully without going through a port of entry in 2015.3While a significant decline in crossings from a decade ago, it still means that there may be 1.7 million successful crossings in the next decade. If a wall stopped just 9 to 12 percent of these crossings it would pay for itself. If a wall stopped half of those expected to successfully enter illegally without going through a port of entry at the southern border over the next 10 years, it would save taxpayers nearly $64 billion — several times the wall’s cost.

"FAKE NEWS / BIASED MEDIA"

 Donald Trump has promised to hold the media responsible for their "dishonest" reporting. After all it was confirmed that 19 out of every 20 (96%) campaign dollars donated by the media industry was given to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. And that Wikileaks exposed the media for colluding with the Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party on various occasions. And also that a scientists developed algorithm confirmed liberal media bias. 



-Mainstream media reported the illegal immigration raids under President Trump's executive order in Feb 2016 was going after "innocent immigrants". However much of the media failed to mention the raids consisted of approximately three-fourths (75%) of the 680 arrested having prior criminal convictions. The mainstream media also failed to mention that a record number of people were deported during Obama's tenure as President.

-CNN caught for using their own cameraman acting as protester.

-Media reporting that Donald Trump did not pay any taxes. However Mr. Trump has paid millions in property taxes alone. As far as income taxes? Well he simply used the legal tax laws in place to pay as little income taxes as possible citing "I fight very hard to pay as little tax as possible". He did so bywriting off his loses just like most every other American does. The truth is most anyone who files their annual taxes attempts to pay as little as taxes as legally required by looking for a plethora of write offs. And anyone who says they don't is being disingenuous. In fact 45% of Americans pay no federal income tax at all.

-Media falsely accusing, then GOP Presidential candidate, Donald Trump of mocking ​​the disability of a reporter. They conveniently failed to report Trump's history of making that same hand gesture for years when addressing several different people, including himself. Although in hindsight Donald Trump should have chosen a different method than his usual hand gesture mocking when speaking about reporter Serge Kovaleski. 

-The media was dreadfully inaccurate (and happily confident in doing so)predicting not only a victory for Hillary Clinton, but a landslide victory.

​- Once Donald Trump won the presidential election, the media seemed to seek out stories about how Trump supporters had abused others. Turns out most of those stories have turned out to be exaggerations, not related to Trump, or just plain lies. In fact many argue that there is an epidemic of false reports of hate crimes in America. 

-The media consistently reported that many of Trump supporters were acting violently at the Trump rallies. But the fact is it was the liberal anarchists who were getting paid by the powerful Democrat supporters to riot and disrupt the Trump rallies, including the fiasco in Chicago. In addition, a sting video proved a Democratic organization was paying and providing anti Trumpantagonists across the country.

11/15/17: After Trump’s electoral victory on November 8, rumors began circulating that multiple transgender teenagers had killed themselves in response to the election results.

1/10/17: CNN chose to report about a scandalous tale of a Machiavellian Russian plot to blackmail Trump based on an utterly unsubstantiated 35-page report by a former intelligence source (who has since been named).  The story began to collapse the second it went up and within two days had fully imploded.

1/17: CNN falsely reported that Nancy Sinatra was not happy Trump was using her father’s song at inauguration. Nancy Sinatra replied “That’s not true. I never said that. Why do you lie, CNN?”

1/17: Time Magazine reporter reported that the Martin Luther King Jr. bust had been removed from the Oval Office. Zeke Miller later apologized after President Trump called him out.

2/3/17: 2/17: At the start of February, which is Black History Month in the United States, Trump proclaimed the month “National African American History Month.”. TMZ claimed 
that a “senior administration official” said that Trump believed the term “black” to be outdated. The problem? It’s just not true. President Obama, for example, declared February “National African American History Month” as well. TMZ quickly updated their piece to fix their embarrassing error.

2/1/17: A Fox affiliate station out of Detroit reported that “A local business owner who flew to Iraq to bring his mother back home to the US for medical treatment said she was blocked from returning home under President Trump’s ban on immigration and travel from seven predominately Muslim nations. He said that while she was waiting for approval to fly home, she died from an illness.”. The Fox affiliate hadn’t bothered to do the necessary research to confirm or disprove the man’s account. 

2/13/17: Several journalists ran with reports suggesting, and alleging outright, that the American Olympian, Ibtihaj Muhammad was "detained because of President Trump's travel ban". However it was later proved that she was detained during President Obama's tenure

2/14/17: Both the New York Times and Newsmax reported on a fake Twitter account, erroneously quoting the account's claim about Trump's pick for national security advisor Michael Flynn

2/17/17: The Associated Press fakely reported President Trump was considering deploying approximately 100,000 National Guard units to round up illegal immigrants.

BREAKING – Lt. Col. Reveals How Obama Committed Treason to Sabotage Trump. ARREST HIM.

Angry Patriot Movement ^ | 2/19/2017 | Staff 

(Watch video at link)
The Obama administration will go down in history as one of the worst presidencies in the United States, and it just keeps getting worse as more information comes forward with Obama trying to sabotage Trump.
Tony Shaffer, a retired lieutenant colonel and an expert in intelligence, has stated that Obama has laid “tripwires” down to disrupt Trump’s presidency. Obama left liberals loyal to him in office, who laid the traps against our President.
On Fox News, Shaffer stated that Obama’s senior adviser, Ben Rhodes among them, planned for the resignation of Gen. Michael Flynn.
According to Shaffer, when Trump was sworn in, loyalists to Obama were in and out of the White House and were planning a disinformation campaign to set against Flynn, who was a huge criticizer of Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. They wanted the agreement to be salvaged.
When Flynn did not inform Pence about the alleged content of the phone calls between himself and Russian ambassadors, that was all that was necessary to remove him from the White House. And it doesn’t stop there.
According to Shaffer, Obama is a very big part of the conspiracy. Though we kicked him out of the White House, Obama vowed to still be a part of the politics in our government. Shaffer thinks that he is not only applauding the actions of the protesters who are against Trump, but he is leading his old appointments to undermine President Trump.
The intelligence community is currently refusing to give information to the White House because they are “concerned” that the information could somehow get out. Which makes zero sense, why would they refuse to tell the White House, especially when its the people within the intelligence community who are leaking information? The answers don’t point to anything good.
Shaffer stated that the CIA Director Mike Pompeo and other individuals who were appointed by Trump are the only ones who are providing information to the White House, but the people who are supposed to answer to Pompeo are making their own decisions on what to report.
“That’s why you need to look at a house-cleaning,” Shaffer stated, he continued by saying, “Some of those professionals were selected [during the Obama years] because of their political reliability, not because of their professional ethics.”
President Trump was right all along, he already removed the lobbyists in the government but now it’s once again time to clean house and get rid of those who are still loyal to Obama and keeping his regime alive.
For too long, our government has been controlled by people who consider not for what is best for the American people, but act based on what brings in the most money and power. And that needs to end, we need to find the rats and sweep them out before they ruin this entire country.

Obama’s Organizing for Action Partners with Soros-Linked ‘Indivisible’ to Disrupt Trump’s Agenda

Breitbart.com ^ | 19 Feb 2017 | Aaron Klein 

Organizing for Action, the activist group that morphed from Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, has partnered with the newly-formed Indivisible Project for “online trainings” on how to protest President Donald Trump’s agenda.
Last week, Breitbart News extensively reported that Indivisible leaders are openly associated with groups financed by billionaire George Soros.
Politico earlier this month profiled Indivisible in an article titled, “Inside the protest movement that has Republicans reeling.” The news agency not only left out the Soros links, but failed to note that the organizations cited in its article as helping to amplify Indivisible’s message are either financed directly by Soros or have close ties to groups funded by the billionaire, as Breitbart News documented.
Organizing for Action (OFA) is a so-called community organizing project that sprung from Obama’s 2012 campaign organization, Organizing for America, becoming a nonprofit described by the Washington Post as “advocate[ing] for the president’s policies.”
In a recent Facebook post titled, “Take a deep breath. Then take action,” OFA called on constituents to lobby particularly hard between now and February 26, when lawmakers will be in their home districts.
The post included a link to a guide released by Indivisible on how to organize against Trump. “Stay tuned for online trainings and invitations to calls with coalition partners like Indivisible Guide,” the OFA post states.
...
Indivisible is a part of a coalition of activist groups slated to hold a massive anti-Trump Tax March in Washington and at least 60 other locations on April 15.
Unreported by the news media is that most of the listed partners and support organizers of the march are openly financed by Soros or have close links to Soros financing, as Breitbart News documented last week.

CNN’s Don Lemon Walks Off Show After Guest Accuses Him Of Reporting Fake News (VIDEO)

Gateway Pundit ^ | 2/18/2017 

CNN has come under heavy fire from many people for reporting fake news including President Trump who called CNN ‘very fake news’ at his last presser. CNN can dish it out, but they can’t take it! After bullying Trump and colluding with Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election cycle they are finally getting a dose of their own medicine.
Of course CNN was blathering on about the cost to keep President Trump safe and how to make it fiscally better for the American people…all of a sudden liberals want to watch pennies and be fiscally responsible. I guess we’ll just have to suspend reality for a moment to forget about the trillions of debt Obama racked up.
Don Lemon: “Paris, what do you think?”
Paris Dennard: “I think this is fake news. This is not…this is not a news story.”
Don Lemon: “What about it is fake, Paris? Are we going down this road again?”
Paris Dennard: “Yeah we are! The President is not breaking any laws.”
Don Lemon: “…Please stop with that stupid talking point that this is a fake news story!…”
Paris Dennard: ” Don this is a fake news story in my opinion….”
This is where Don Lemon couldn’t take it anymore, cut off his guest and walked off his show!
Don Lemon: “Ok, thank you very much everyone. Thanks for watching. Have a great weekend. Good night all.”
What’s really funny is watching Don Lemon try to lecture someone on what the definition of fake news is. Congrats to CNN for being promoted from ‘fake news’ to ‘VERY fake news’!

'Fake news' CNN: Time to take 'em out

WND ^ | 02/17/2017 | Larry Klayman 

Exclusive: Larry Klayman demands FCC pull license from 'Communist News Network'

My column will get right to the point. CNN, which has morphed from the “Clinton News Network” to the “Communist News Network” under the stewardship of its ultra leftist, Harvard-educated, 5-foot-6-inch dwarf of a president, Jeff Zucker, was sued today before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The complaint, which is self- explanatory, is excerpted below.
"Freedom Watch and its Leftist Media Strike Force hereby respectfully demand regulatory enforcement action against CNN to fine, discipline and revoke any and all licenses from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for CNN, or any other legal and appropriate remedial action.
"… inciting assassination of the elected President and Vice President, and the Speaker of the House, amounts in effect to treason against the U.S. Constitution and the peaceful transition of power. This is an indictable criminal offense or series of offenses, and it surely violates the regulatory right of CNN to operate under Federal Communications Commission, its enabling statute and regulations.

Memos signed by DHS secretary describe sweeping new guidelines for deporting illegal immigrants

Washington Post ^ | February 18, 2017 | David Nakamura 

Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly has signed sweeping new guidelines that empower federal authorities to more aggressively detain and deport illegal immigrants inside the United States and at the border.

In a pair of memos, Kelly offered more detail on plans for the agency to hire thousands of additional enforcement agents, expand the pool of immigrants who are prioritized for removal, speed up deportation hearings and enlist local law enforcement to help make arrests.

The new directives would supersede nearly all of those issued under previous administrations, Kelly said, including measures from President Barack Obama aimed at focusing deportations exclusively on hardened criminals and those with terrorist ties.

NAACP Leader Balks At Idea Of Congressional White Caucus [VIDEO]

The Daily Caller ^ | February 17, 2017 | Ian Mason 

Cornell William Brooks, President and CEO of the NAACP, was at loss for words Thursday night as former Reagan adviser Jeffrey Lord injected a hypothetical Congressional White Caucus into a debate on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360.
The racially charged exchange began during a discussion of President Trump having asked an African-American reporter from a black-focused new radio outlet if she knew the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus.

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

“Frankly I used to think the Congressional Black Caucus, when it was first formed, was a good thing,” Lord began. “I changed my mind on this. I don’t think there should be any caucuses in the House of Representatives that are divided by race. I mean, heaven forbid, if David Duke got elected and wanted to form a Congressional White Caucus, that would be appalling,” he said, explaining his change of heart.
“Sir, Jeffrey, that is…I’m looking for a word here. Beyond…it’s completely preposterous. To compare the Klan to the Congressional Black Caucus,” Brooks smilingly replied, visibly upset by the analogy his fellow panelist drew.
“You would be okay with a Congressional White Caucus? Really?” Lord shot back, interrupting Brooks’ explanation of the Black Caucus’s purpose. “I didn’t say that,” was Brook’s immediate reply.
Not content with a mere explanation of the differences between the CBC and this hypothetical White Caucus, Brooks demanded an apology for the comparison. “Frankly, sir, you should apologize for even putting the Klan and the Congressional Black Caucus in the same sentence,” he told Lord.

Poll: Americans want Democrats to work with Trump (73%)

The Hill ^ | February 18, 2017 | By Jonathan Easley 

A strong majority of Americans say Democrats should look to cooperate with President Trump to strike deals, according to the inaugural Harvard-Harris poll provided exclusively by The Hill.

The survey found that 73 percent of voters want to see Democrats work with the president, against only 27 percent who said Democrats should resist Trump’s every move.

The findings are significant as Democratic leaders in Congress are under growing pressure by their liberal base to obstruct the president's agenda. The poll shows the party is divided on how to deal with Trump: 52 percent of Democrats polled say they should cooperate with him on areas of agreement and 48 percent saying they shouldn't.

Those figures are nearly identical when the question is flipped – 68 percent of those polled say that Trump should be willing to compromise and find ways to work with Democrats in Congress. Thirty-two percent said Trump shouldn’t bend at all, even if it means finding ways to achieve his agenda without congressional approval. . .

America Is Safer, in Less Than a Month!

Real Clear Politics ^ | February 18, 2017 | Robert E. Heiler 

Consider this: What can we predict about the immediate political fallout if a substantial jihadist attack on American soil were to happen tomorrow?
Answer: As we saw following 9/11, the visceral response is to rally around the flag; to see clearly the truth that despite our diverse spectrum of interests and opinions, there is much more connecting us than separating us. But the partisanship of the moment would profoundly affect the internal contours of that response.
For starters, the response of President Donald Trump would mostly likely be predictable, somewhat juvenile, and entirely correct: “I told you so.” It is not hard to imagine a tweet consisting of precisely these words, despite their impropriety.
Such a response, would present all those vigorously resisting his leadership -- which is to say nearly all Democrats and some Republicans -- with a stark and unavoidable choice: double down or shut up. The atmosphere and national mood would encourage the latter; some converts might have a genuine change of heart, and others merely a keen sense of self-preservation.
The point of this thought experiment is to illustrate what Trump has already accomplished: he has, to no small degree, hamstrung our enemies. A large-scale tactical success for them would risk strategic disaster. Trump campaigned on the strategic advantage of unpredictability. The popular response to a large attack would, simply put, elevate him. That is a thing that the jihadists devoutly want him not to have, for reasons that should be obvious.
This is true because of the asymmetric nature of our conflict. We are the conventional power, clearly superior in resources and technology. They are the guerrilla force, relying on concealment, surprise, and a low-intensity conflict to neutralize those advantages....

In 1 Chart, What Your Favorite Fast-Food Items Would Cost With $15 Minimum Wage

The Daily Signal ^ | February 17, 2017 | Melissa Quinn 

For Americans hitting the drive-thru at their local McDonald’s, a $15-an-hour minimum wage could hit them in their wallets.
According to a January report released by James Sherk, a former research fellow in labor economics at The Heritage Foundation, fast-food prices would rise by 38 percent under a $15-an-hour minimum wage and cause a 36 percent drop in employment.
Sherk’s research comes after several cities and states across the country voted to raise their minimum wages, with increases typically phased in over the next five years.
Additionally, several Democrats have advocated a $15-an-hour minimum wage at the federal level, as does Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who spoke about the need for an increase to the federal minimum wage while campaigning for president last year.
In his paper, Sherk said that raising the minimum wage would lead to higher labor costs for fast-food restaurants. Restaurant owners operating on already slim profit margins would then need to raise their prices.
Those higher menu prices would have a direct impact on customers who frequent fast-food establishments.
Here’s how prices at some of the most popular fast-food restaurants would change with a $15-an-hour minimum wage.

PBS, NEA, AmeriCorps on the chopping block in Trump’s first budget

Hotair ^ | 02/18/2017 | John Sexton 


The New York Times reported yesterday that the White House budget office has prepared a list of programs that could be eliminated in Trump’s first budget proposal. Among those programs are the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts and Humanities and AmeriCorps. From the NY Times:
Work on the first Trump administration budget has been delayed as the budget office awaited Senate confirmation of former Representative Mick Mulvaney, a spending hard-liner, as budget director. Now that he is in place, his office is ready to move ahead with a list of nine programs to eliminate, an opening salvo in the Trump administration’s effort to reorder the government and increase spending on defense and infrastructure…
Many of those programs have been attacked by conservatives since the Republican “revolution” of 1994. Led by then-Speaker Newt Gingrich, the House of Representatives at the time repeatedly went after funding for the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, whose supporters dragged Big Bird and Kermit the Frog to Capitol Hill to make their case…
Other agencies on the budget office’s list of cuts include the Overseas Private Investment Corporation and the Corporation for National and Community Service, which finances programs run by AmeriCorps and SeniorCorps. The memo also proposed reducing funding for the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation, a nonprofit organization focused on urban development.
You probably don’t have to guess where this is going. Every time someone threatens to cut PBS funding, progressives roll out Big Bird. In fact, Obama for America did this in 2012 after Mitt Romney said he would cut PBS funding. Here’s an ad they created which has been viewed more than 3 1/2 million times:

The real problem with zeroing out these programs isn’t that it will kill Big Bird. Sesame Street could make it in the free market without the $500 million a year CPB gets in taxpayer funds. The real problem is that these cuts, which together amount to $2.5 billion a year, won’t put a real dent in our growing debt.
As the debt clock approaches $20 trillion dollars, it’s important to remember that government spending is overwhelmingly dedicated to two big entitlement programs: Medicare and Social Security. We spend nearly $900 billion dollars a year on Social Security and over $900 billion a year on Medicare and associated programs (Medicaid, CHIP, etc). Since that is where the real money is, addressing our debt without touching these big programs is impossible.
But back when he was a candidate, Trump said a number of times that he would not be cutting Social Security or Medicare. This clip shows about four instances where he publicly promised no cuts to these programs.

CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO

Cutting funds to CPB and the NEA could be a symbolic victory for conservatives who have long argued these programs are wasteful. I get that. But unless this is just a first step, one which leads us to eventually addressing the real drivers of our debt, these cuts aren’t going to make much of a difference.
