The Gateway Pundit – Attacked from All Sides, Slandered but Still Standing Tall! When Will Conservatives See Where Their Message is Shared and by Whom?

This past year I watched as liberal demons attacked my brother, Jim, the Gateway Pundit, from all directions. Liberals have hated Jim for years because he is so effective but this past year they took it to another level. The most shocking aspect of all this was watching as so called conservatives joined in the attacks due to Jim’s love for President Trump.

I watched Jim start his website and see it grow. Jim had a desire to tell the truth. He received no income for years but did gain a following and some admirers. Little by little accolades came his way. One group from Israel, for example, liked what Jim posted and his support for Israel so they flew Jim and Andrew Breitbart and a few others to Israel to show them what Israel was up against in the Middle East. They even had the opportunity to meet Prime Minister Netanyahu. Jim proudly shows that picture on his website banner to this day. It was one of many proud moments Jim had as a result of his desire to share that truth.

Years passed and Jim became more successful. During the months leading up to the 2016 election The Gateway Pundit (TGP) was on fire. Jim had jumped on the Trump train early. Seeing that only Trump could beat the Hillary machine. No other candidate had a chance. Hillary’s challenger had to be an outsider who was bold, honest and willing to speak the truth about the Clintons and Obama, and Trump did and he won.

After the election TGP was rated the fourth most influential conservative news source during the months leading up to the election. Both Harvard and Columbia Journalism Review funded research (with money from the Soros Open Society) to find out what happened and how Hillary possibly could have lost. What they found was that conservative Americans whole-heartedly rejected the liberal media and went online and to social media to find the truth.

The university researchers found that The Gateway Pundit was the 4th most influential conservative news source during the election. (Behind Breitbart, FOX News and The Hill). Breitbart had a huge impact in stories read but TGP was not far behind. Matt Drudge and The Drudge Report were not mentioned in the study but Drudge is perhaps one of a handful of individuals, including TGP, to help push President Trump into the White House.

Jim was basically a one man show in those hectic months. A few others wrote some for Jim but it was mostly and entirely Jim. This man with the largest website by some measurements in the Midwest saw what only Drudge and few others did and now we have a President in the White House that is rated higher than Reagan was in his first year by the Heritage Foundation. No crooked Hillary as President thanks to TGP.

This set the demonic liberals on fire. They recognized that because of TGP tweets and Facebook shares his message and those of a few other leading conservatives were pushed to the masses and around the mainstream liberal media. The liberal’s first actions were to conjure up the word ‘fake news’ and use this in another of their belittling messages about conservative points of view. They conjured up a team of liberal entities who will determine what is ‘fake news’ and what is not. If you are conservative your stories are fake, if liberal they are not.

Next the socials began blocking and not sharing tweets, Facebook shares and YouTube videos of conservatives. To hell with free speech. I watched, investigated and discussed with Jim over the months since the election, the many ways that his stories were prevented from being shared through social media. We have records from before and after the election and these results are stunning. For example, we saw up to 25% of TGP’s traffic came from Facebook shares shortly after the election and it barely is at 10% now. We could tell when Twitter and Facebook set their goons on TGP posts. It was shocking that this would go on in America today.

Google too has done all they can to prevent the widespread sharing of conservative ideas by burying huge stories by TGP in queries where they should be first. Instead nearly every source in every search is a far left entity with some distorted crazy and dishonest liberal interpretation.

But the bigger hit that the socials have taken of TGP is in the pocket book. Google and Facebook have a duopoly in the market for internet ads. Together they own around 60% of all ads. They changed their practices to where conservative sites like TGP receive about 30% of the ad revenue they received before the election.

In addition, entities like the far left and dishonest Media Matters have tracked TGP and regularly post hit pieces from behind their Soros backed firewalls. They spread derogatory or fake news about TGP and do all they can to negatively impact TGP’s credibility. Even former close friends who morphed into Never Trumpers made up false stories about TGP doxing them. It seems like Jim was getting it from all angles.

In spite of all of this TGP had its best year ever in 2017! Generic growth carried TGP to new heights.

Jim’s been adamant about sharing to whomever will listen the injustice and anti-free speech actions being taken against TGP and other conservative media outlets. He held a remarkable presentation in Washington a few weeks ago where he and other very successful conservatives in the media shared similar concerns.

Then this past week Jim was notified by Pamela Geller, that CPAC would allow her to hold a panel discussion on the attacks on conservatives by the socials, but they said that Jim could not be on the panel because of his alleged ties with Nazis! What absolute nonsense! Outrageous!

Jim is the most upstanding and courageous man I know. He has been attacked from all sides. Now CPAC is refusing him to be on a panel, after forcing him to buy a ticket to get into CPAC to be on the panel, because he is a Jew hater?

When will conservatives wake up and see that if someone is attacked by lying liberals it is because they are effective. Whether it be Donald Trump, Andrew Breitbart or Jim Hoft, the left want to destroy conservative messengers rather than articulate clear answers to conservative arguments. Liberals lie!

All conservatives are being attacked. Liberals to this day report as if their viewpoint was the only viewpoint but President Trump crushed this narrative again and again and again. We now know that we are the super majority! When will conservatives at CPAC understand this and wake up to how conservative messages are most effectively being shared and by whom?

President Trump’s Stock Market Rally Quietly Set a Couple of New All-Time Records Last Week – Who Would Have Known It?

After having a tumultuous first week to the month, the Trump Stock Market Rally got back on track and quietly set a couple new all-time record highs last week.

As January came to a close the Trump Stock Market Rally was on fire. The Dow was up more than 45% since the 2016 election and numerous all-time record highs were set. In 2017 the Dow recorded more all-time highs than any year in US history and 2018 was a continuation of the Trump Stock Market Rally.

The economy was on fire. GDP was being projected to be near 5% for the first quarter. Unemployment was at 45 year lows and consumer confidence was through the roof top. Positive results from the tax cut bill were not yet in effect. All signs were showing a continued rally.

Then came the February surprise. The first week in February showed the market decreasing by alarming rates. Twice the market dropped more than 1,000 points. Democrats and their liberal cheerleaders in the media were ecstatic. The Trump Rally had ended. To hell with America, the bad economy was good for them and their thirst for power.

Something didn’t make sense about the markets going down though. We soon found out that unethical actions taken by Chicago options traders caused the markets downturn. This is the only explanation that made sense and the SEC has now been advised. (We’re not sure if Obama and Hillary had anything to do with it.)

Quietly last week the Dow rebounded. By Thursday the market had regained more than 1,300 points in the prior five days of trading (1,340). This had never happened before. In the history of the Dow, the markets had never gained more than 1,300 points in five trading days. In fact, the Dow had only gained more than 1,000 points in five days of trading only four times as of Thursday – on March 21, 2000 by 1,096 points; on November 3rd of 2008 by 1,144 points; on November 28th of 2008 by 1,277 points and then again on Thursday.

It’s funny, when the stock market went down in the first week of February, the media was all over it. Now that a new record was set for the best five days in trading history, the media was silent.

By Friday, the markets had achieved the best week in Dow history. The markets were up 1,028 for the week. The Dow had never gained so many points in its rich history in one week. Some media outlets reported that the Dow had its best week since 2015 – hogwash. This was the best week ever.

Day after day the Trump Stock Market Rally continues to thrive. The mainstream media won’t report it but we will at TGP. We can expect to see continued market success and Americans will continue to benefit in their 401k accounts, whether the media reports it or not.


Either Former FBI Director Comey or Former Obama Ambassador Susan Rice is Lying Based on Yesterday’s Email Released by Senator Grassley

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley uncovered an unusual email former NatSec Advisor to Barack Obama, Susan Rice sent herself on January 20th 2017–Donald Trump’s inauguration day. The email clearly implicates either Susan Rice or shamed former FBI Director James Comey in a lie!

As reported yesterday by TGP’s Cristina Laila, Senator Chuck Grassley posted to his official Senate website Monday:

Ambassador Rice appears to have used this email to document a January 5, 2017 Oval Office meeting between President Obama, former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates regarding Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election. In particular, Ambassador Rice wrote:
“President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book’. The President stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.”
Grassley said in a letter to Susan Rice:
“It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation. In addition, despite your claim that President Obama repeatedly told Mr. Comey to proceed ‘by the book,’ substantial questions have arisen about whether officials at the FBI, as well as at the Justice Department and the State Department, actually did proceed ‘by the book.’”
Senate Judiciary Chairmen Grassley and Graham sent Susan Rice a list of questions she must answer the Committee by January 22nd 2018.
Either Rice lied when writing this email to herself or former FBI Director James Comey lied.
Comey shared the following prepared testimony in June 2017 under oath before Congress –
….I felt compelled to document my first conversation with the President-Elect in a memo. To ensure accuracy, I began to type it on a laptop in an FBI vehicle outside Trump Tower the moment I walked out of the meeting. Creating written records immediately after one-on-one conversations with Mr. Trump was my practice from that point forward. This had not been my practice in the past. I spoke alone with President Obama twice in person (and never on the phone) — once in 2015 to discuss law enforcement policy issues and a second time, briefly, for him to say goodbye in late 2016. In neither of those circumstances did I memorialize the discussions. I can recall nine one-on-one conversations with President Trump in four months — three in person and six on the phone….
This was shared on Twitter late last night –

Comey never stated that he met President Obama in person in the Oval office in 2017. Either he or former Ambassador Rice is lying. (They both probably are.)

Evidence Beginning to Suggest that Former FBI Head of Counter Intelligence, Bill Priestap, is Obamagate’s ‘Deep Throat’!

More and more evidence is beginning to suggest the Former FBI Head of Counter Intelligence, Bill Priestap, is Obamagate’s ‘deep throat’ – the insider providing information to government investigators about the Obama crime syndicate!

As reported earlier by TGP, Rep. Chris Stewart joined Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night to discuss the latest developments from the Congressional deep state investigation. Stewart sits on the House Intelligence Committee and told Judge Jeanine he did not want to make any headlines. Bill Priestap came up in the discussion.

Via Judge Jeanine:

Judge Jeanine: Who is Christopher Wray defending other than his own FBI guys? Most of whom are leaving or who’ve been asked to leave? I mean that’s what’s so crazy about this. Christopher Wray needs to be asked, what name did you want to be not revealed here? Peter Strzok? McCabe? You know the people that are clearly in trouble. And, by the way, have you heard the name Bill Priestap in the FBI who’s the head of counter intelligence and Strzok’s boss?

Rep. Chris Stewart: Yeah, we’ve heard that name and you’re going to hear more of that name. I want to go back though to something you said…

Judge Jeanine: No, I want to go back to Priestap but you go back first… But I want to go back to Priestap. And I want my audience to remember this name. I’ll tell you why I’m asking. I don’t like that I haven’t heard of him. We’ve heard of the whole hierarchy, everybody on that seventh floor. And there’s one guy we don’t hear about and that’s Priestap. Comey threw him under the bus and said that this guy who was Strzok’s boss told Comey not to advise Congress of certain things. And the fact that we haven’t heard from Priestap tells me he’s cooperating with someone or what?

Chris Stewart: Well, look I’m going to be careful on this because I’m not sure what we can say on this and believe me I don’t want to be the headline… Comey surrounded himself with liberal progressive hacks. And they don’t reflect the entity of the Department of Justice or the FBI.

Rep. Stewart to Judge Jeanine: You’re going to be hearing a lot more on Bill Priestap.

Bill Priestap is the only major player from the FBI seventh floor who is not making any headlines.

Everyone around Priestap has either been caught inside the investigative net or they resigned. But so far we have heard nothing about Bill Priestap. Conservative Treehouse has more on Priestap:

Everyone around Bill Priestap, above and below, were caught inside the investigative net.

Above him: James Comey, Andrew McCabe and James Baker. Below him: Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Jim Rybicki, Trisha Beth Anderson and Mike Kortan. Parallel to Priestap in main justice his peer John P Carlin resigned, Sally Yates fired, Mary McCord quit, Bruce Ohr was busted twice, and most recently Dave Laufman resigned. All of them caught in the investigative net…. Only Bill Priestap remained, quietly invisible – still in position.

A report at shares the following –

The investigation into candidate Donald Trump was a counterintelligence operation. That operation began in July 2016. Bill Priestap would have been in charge of that, along with all other, FBI counterintelligence operations.

FBI Deputy Peter Strzok was specifically in charge of the Trump counterintel op. However, Strzok would be reporting to Bill Priestap on every detail and couldn’t (according to structure anyway) make a move without Priestap approval.

On March 20th 2017 congressional testimony, James Comey was asked why the FBI Director did not inform congressional oversight about the counterintelligence operation that began in July 2016.

FBI Director Comey said he did not tell congressional oversight he was investigating presidential candidate Donald Trump because the Director of Counterintelligence suggested he not do so. *Very important detail.*

I cannot emphasize this enough. *VERY* important detail. Again, notice how Comey doesn’t use Priestap’s actual name, but refers to his position and title. Again, watch [Prompted]

Dirty cop Comey threw Priestap under the bus in the above Congressional inquiry. Maybe this led Priestap to share information also noted in the FISA memo released by the House when discussing the bogus dossier used to obtain the FISA warrant to spy on President Trump?

This is getting good. The deep state criminal network is slowly being exposed. Maybe there is a mole or ‘deep throat’ as was insinuated in the Watergate scandal. Is Priestap deep throat in the Obamagate scandal? Lock Them All Up!

Dirty Deep State Mueller and Rosenstein Trying to Get Manafort’s Case Thrown Out Because They Know It Will Shut Down Dirty Mueller’s Corrupt Investigation!

President Trump’s former Campaign Manager Paul Manafort’s filing of a suit against the “Deep State” DOJ, Rosenstein and Mueller is now being contested by Mueller. No surprise since Manafort’s suit is likely to shut down Mueller investigation! This needs to be moved up for the good of the country. Shut down the damn crooked Mueller investigation now!

Former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort sued the DOJ, Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein and is demanding the Mueller investigation be shut down! Now Mueller wants Manafort’s case thrown out!

We have reported for months on the many criminal and corrupt actions taken by numerous parties related to the Mueller investigation. Mueller never should have taken on the job in the first place due to numerous conflicts. He is best friends with fired leaker and former FBI Director James Comey. He met with Comey shortly before Comey testified with Congress and for this alone he should have recused himself. The team Mueller built to attack President Trump and have him removed is all Deep State attorneys and crooks. Mueller’s record in the past is scattered with actions that let the Clintons off Scott free on numerous occasions when they should have been put in jail.

We now know that the FBI had an investigation into the Clintons and moneys they received from Russia in return for giving Russia 20% of all US uranium. Prior to the Obama administration approving the very controversial Uranium One deal in 2010 giving Russia 20% of America’s Uranium, the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were involved in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in order to benefit Vladimir Putin. The FBI approved the deal anyway. We also know that Rosenstein and Mueller were the ones who allowed the Uranium One deal to go forward. This was the real Russia collusion story involving the US government.

We know that Mueller’s team illegally obtained emails related to the Trump transition team and these emails were protected under attorney-client privilege. Mueller and his entire team should have resigned after this.

But the perhaps one of the most damning aspects of the Mueller investigation is that it was not legal. The corrupt Mueller investigation is tasked with finding a crime that does not exist in the law. It is a legal impossibility. Mueller is being asked to do something that is manifestly unattainable.

FOX News Legal Analyst Gregg Jarrett stated in an article a couple of months ago the fact that the entire Mueller investigation is lawless. Jarrett argued that –

Shortly after the indictments[against Papadopoulos and Manafort] were unsealed, the media’s spirits were suddenly boosted when the special counsel revealed that a former adviser to Trump pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with a Russian national during his time on the Trump campaign. Surely this was evidence of illegal “collusion,” right?

Wrong. George Papadopoulos pled guilty to a single charge of making a false statement to the FBI. He was not charged with so-called “collusion” because no such crime exists in American statutory law, except in anti-trust matters. It has no application to elections and political campaigns.

It is not a crime to talk to a Russian. Not that the media would ever understand that. They have never managed to point to a single statute that makes “colluding” with a foreign government in a political campaign a crime, likely because it does not exist in the criminal codes.

Jarrett then turned his attention to Corrupt Hillary –

It is against the law for the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee to funnel millions of dollars to a British spy and to Russian sources in order to obtain the infamous and discredited Trump “dossier.” The Federal Election Campaign Act (52 USC 30101) prohibits foreign nationals and governments from giving or receiving money in U.S. campaigns. It also prohibits the filing of false or misleading campaign reports to hide the true purpose of the money (52 USC 30121). This is what Clinton and the DNC appear to have done.

Most often the penalty for violating this law is a fine, but in egregious cases, like this one, criminal prosecutions have been sought and convictions obtained. In this sense, it could be said that Hillary Clinton is the one who was conspiring with the Russians by breaking campaign finance laws with impunity.

But that’s not all. Damning new evidence appears to show that Clinton used her office as Secretary of State to confer benefits to Russia in exchange for millions of dollars in donations to her foundation and cash to her husband. Secret recordings, intercepted emails, financial records, and eyewitness accounts allegedly show that Russian nuclear officials enriched the Clintons at the very time Hillary presided over a governing body which unanimously approved the sale of one-fifth of America’s uranium supply to Russia.

If this proves to be a corrupt “pay-to-play” scheme, it would constitute a myriad of crimes, including bribery (18 USC 201-b), mail fraud (18 USC 1341), and wire fraud (18 USC 1343). It might also qualify for racketeering charges (18 USC 1961-1968), if her foundation is determined to have been used as a criminal enterprise.

The US statutory law is clear and Jarrett points it out. He concluded with the following –

Until now, no one had legal “standing” to argue in court that the appointment of Mueller was illegal. The criminal charges [against Manafort and Papadopoulos] change all that. The two defendants will be able to argue before a judge that Mueller’s appointment by Acting Attorney General Rod Rosenstein violated the special counsel law.

As I pointed out in a column last May, the law (28 CFR 600) grants legal authority to appoint a special counsel to investigate crimes. Only crimes. He has limited jurisdiction. Yet, in his order appointing Mueller as special counsel (Order No. 3915-2017), Rosenstein directed him to investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.” It fails to identify any specific crimes, likely because none are applicable.

To put it plainly, Mueller is tasked with finding a crime that does not exist in the law. It is a legal impossibility. He is being asked to do something that is manifestly unattainable. Manafort sued the DOJ, Mueller and Rosenstein because what they are doing is not supported by US Law. This is the biggest story of the day! Manafort is suing to have the Mueller investigation shut down!

Manafort’s case argues in paragraph 33 that the special counsel put in place by crooked Rosenstein gave crooked and criminal Mueller powers that are not permitted by law –

  1. But paragraph (b)(ii) of the Appointment Order purports to grant Mr. Mueller further authority to investigate and prosecute “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.” That grant of authority is not authorized by DOJ’s special counsel regulations. It is not a “specific factual statement of the matter to be investigated.” Nor is it an ancillary power to address efforts to impede or obstruct investigation under 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a).

On February 3rd, 2018, Mueller quietly petitioned the court to throw out Manafort’s case. Corrupt Rod Rosenstein (noted recently as one individual who signed off on the FISA memos to spy on President Trump) came to corrupt bad cop Mueller’s aid –

In his civil lawsuit, Manafort’s lawyers claim that Mueller overstepped his mandate to pursue “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation” into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Manafort claimed that Mueller’s team improperly interpreted their authority as giving them “carte blanche” to pursue crimes beyond Russian collusion.

But in the filing on Friday, prosecutors cited the Dec. 13 congressional testimony of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller’s work because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself.

“I’m properly exercising my oversight responsibilities, and so I can assure you that the special counsel is conducting himself consistently with our understanding about the scope of his investigation,” Rosenstein testified. Mueller’s prosecutors attached a transcript of Rosenstein’s testimony to the House Judiciary Committee.

What an absolute crock from the two most corrupt members of the deep state! Manafort’s case shouldn’t be thrown out, it should be moved up! The country’s destiny depends on corrupt Mueller’s investigation to be shut down and Mueller and his deep state cronies thrown in jail.

If Manafort wins this case – which it appears according to the law he will – the entire Mueller investigation would be deemed illegal – which it is! It would have to be shut down – which it should be. The President’s team should petition to move Manafort’s case up to get this mess overwith so we can begin using all our efforts to bring Mueller and the deep state to justice and to jail!


It’s Time to Fire Nightmare AG Jeff Sessions or He Must Resign – It’s the Only Way to Save the Republic!

For months it’s been clear that AG Sessions is a total failure. He recused himself and then hired crook Rod Rosenstein as Asst AG who then created the crooked Mueller investigation. If this republic is to continue, Sessions must go!

The US cannot have multiple layers of laws. It’s impossible to have some individuals who do not have to abide by the same laws as the rest of the population. We also cannot stand for the corrupt FBI, DOJ and State Departments (amongst others) that are able to spy, lie and assault Americans for faulty crimes. Obama’s Administration was corrupt and dishonest at all levels and so it’s no surprise that the entire federal government is corrupt. These people must be swept out. It’s starts with AG Sessions!

AG Sessions praised Asst AG Rosenstein the same day Rosenstein was identified in the FISA memo as one of the individuals who signed off on the slanderous FISA memo to spy on President Trump. Mueller’s investigation is full of former Clinton and Obama corrupt cronies. The FBI and DOJ continue to delay and prevent Congress from seeing information requested for month. Much of the information is unnecessarily redacted from the individuals (Congress) who has the mandate to oversee these same institutions.

Many Congressman are calling for Jeff Sessions to resign or be replaced and have for months –

One video on the Internet explains Sessions’ immense failures. (The only point not relevant is related to the suggestion of moving DOJ official Rachel Brand up to oversee the Mueller investigation. This is not possible now as she resigned from the DOJ on Friday.)

We’ve been calling for this for months. Jeff Sessions is deep state. He must go!

Senate Minority Leader ‘Crying Chuck’ Schumer Delaying Trump German Ambassador Appointment to LGBT Richard Grenell to Enable CIA Operatives in Germany to Peddle for Anti Trump Material with Russia

Two big stories in the news are inextricably related and the connection is not being reported. Senate leaders are delaying the appointment of LGBT Richard Grenell for U.S. Ambassador to Germany. At the same time, it’s being reported that U.S. spies paid $100,000 to a “shadowy,” Russian promising dirt on President Trump. The reason that the Democrats are delaying Grenell’s appointment is because the CIA team in Germany is trying to obtain information on President Trump from Russia and they would have to report to Grenell if he were appointed which would end their bogus scavenger hunt.

Yesterday TGP’s Joshua Caplan shared the report from the New York Times related to Russia –

After months of secret negotiations, a shadowy Russian bilked American spies out of $100,000 last year, promising to deliver stolen National Security Agency cyberweapons in a deal that he insisted would also include compromising material on President Trump, according to American and European intelligence officials. The cash, delivered in a suitcase to a Berlin hotel room in September, was intended as the first installment of a $1 million payout, according to American officials, the Russian and communications reviewed by The New York Times. The theft of the secret hacking tools had been devastating to the N.S.A., and the agency was struggling to get a full inventory of what was missing. […] He claimed the information would link the president and his associates to Russia. But instead of providing the hacking tools, the Russian produced unverified and possibly fabricated information involving Mr. Trump and others, including bank records, emails and purported Russian intelligence data.

But his apparent eagerness to sell the Trump “kompromat” — a Russian term for information used to gain leverage over someone — to American spies raised suspicions among officials that he was part of an operation to feed the information into United States intelligence agencies and pit them against Mr. Trump. Early in the negotiations, for instance, he dropped his asking price from about $10 million to just over $1 million. Then, a few months later, he showed the American businessman a 15-second clip of a video showing a man in a room talking to two women. No audio could be heard on the video, and there was no way to verify if the man was Mr. Trump, as the Russian claimed.

Also, yesterday Breitbart reported that Donald Trump Jr. and Log Cabin Republicans Slam Democrats for Stalling Richard Grenell Appointment

The Log Cabin Republicans protested against the stalling of openly gay diplomat Richard Grenell’s appointment as U.S. ambassador to Germany, Thursday, followed by Donald Trump Jr. adding his voice to the matter.

“It is simply unconscionable that @RichardGrenell hasn’t been brought up for a vote in the United States Senate to confirm him as our country’s Ambassador to Germany,” declared the Log Cabin Republicans in a post on Twitter, before encouraging people to call Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and complain. “It’s time to #ConfirmGrenell NOW!”

According to Breitbart, Grenell will be the highest-ranking openly gay government official in U.S. history, reporting directly to the Secretary of State. But for some reason Crying Chuck Schumer, the Democrat leader in the Senate, is doing all he can to prevent the Grenell appointment from coming up for a vote in the Senate.

Conservative Arthur Schwartz is suggesting that the reason Grenell’s ambassadorship vote is being delayed is because Grenell could stop the horribly embarrassing and controversial Russia witch hunt by the CIA in Germany, if he were in place. The CIA station chief in Berlin reports to the US Ambassador. But there is no ambassador there now. So the station chief currently gets to do what he wants, without oversight from Grenell.

It’s time for the Senate to begin investigations into the corrupt Democrat US Senators that are doing all they can to obtain bogus spam from Russia. Send them all to the gulags.

President Trump’s Debt Increase is a Third of Obama’s and the President is Decreasing the Debt to GDP Ratio

Guest post by Joe Hoft

In spite of the fact that President Trump took over with nearly $20 trillion of debt and the related interest payments on the debt, and in spite of the Federal Reserve (FED) under Janet Yellen increasing interest rates by a full 1 percent since the 2016 election, President Donald Trump’s debt is one third and $1.2 trillion less than Obama’s.

The US Debt since President Trump was inaugurated on January 20th, 2016 through today has increased by only $547 billion. On inauguration day the debt was at $19.9 trillion and on February 7th, 2018 the debt stood at $20.5 trillion.

Although a half a trillion dollars is a lot of money added to the debt, it is a fraction of what President Obama added during the same time frame in his first year plus in office.

Where President Trump increased the Debt to date by only 2.7% , Obama increased the debt by 16.2% or 13.5% more than President Trump.

President Obama inherited a US Debt amount of $10.6 trillion on his inauguration and increased it by more than $1.7 trillion by the end of his first year in office.

Obama increased the US Debt amount by $1.2 trillion more than President Trump in the same respective time in office. In addition, President Trump has been able to limit the amount of new debt in spite of the massive increase in debt from Obama ($10 trillion) and the rising interest rates initiated by the Fed.

Right after Barack Obama was elected President, on December 16, 2008, the Federal Reserve (The Fed) lowered the Fed Funds rate by an entire percent, from 1% down to 0% . The Fed had not lowered the Fed Funds rate by such a large amount (1% ) since at least before 1990, if ever. The Fed kept this 0% rate for most of Obama’s eight years in office.

CNBC reported in December 2015 that President Obama oversaw “seven years of the most accommodative monetary policy in U.S. history” (from the Fed). The Fed Funds rate was at zero for most of Obama’s time in office. Finally, in December 2015 the Fed announced its first increase in the Fed Funds rate during the Obama Presidency.

The only Fed Funds Rate increases since 2015 were after President Trump was elected President. The Fed increased the Fed Funds Rate on December 14, 2016, March 15th, 2017, June 14, 2017 and again on December 13, 2017. Four times the Fed has increased rates on President Trump after doing so only once on President Obama late in his 2nd term.

The Fed Funds Rate greatly impacts the economy:

Lower interest rates usually spur the economy by making corporate and consumer borrowing easier. Higher interest rates are intended to slow down the economy by making borrowing harder.

If the Federal Reserve was political and wanted to prevent Republican Presidents from successful economic growth and debt decreases, then the Fed would increase the Fed Funds rates during Republican Presidents’ terms while decreasing the Fed Funds rates under Democratic Presidents’ terms. This appears to be exactly what the Fed is doing and the market is reacting negatively this past week because of it..

Increases in the Fed Funds Rate increase the cost of borrowing and the largest borrower in the world is the US government. With $20 trillion in debt, a 1% increase in interest payments equals $200 billion in annual interest payment increases.

President Obama benefited from the lowest possible interest rates possible for most of his eight years and in spite of this, nearly doubled the US Debt from $10 trillion to nearly $20 trillion.

Another impressive economic indicator for President Trump is related to the debt to GDP ratio. The higher a country’s debt to GDP ratio, the less healthy the country’s economy. With the GDP numbers released at the end of 2017, President Trump’s policies have officially decreased the Debt to GDP ratio by 1.2% in the President’s first year in office.

In contrast, President Obama increased the US Debt to GDP ratio his first year in office by 14.5%. Obama increased the same ratio a total of 37% over his 8 years in office.

The US GDP has increased each quarter in 2017 with the 4th Quarter GDP increasing to $19.739 trillion – the highest GDP for any country in world history.

Also President Trump has curtailed US spending. The result is that the US Debt to GDP ratio decreased in 2017 from 105% to 104%.

No President in more than 50 years has decreased the Debt to GDP ratio in his first year in office by more than 1%. The last President to do so was Nixon in 1969. Presidents Reagan and George W. Bush decreased the Debt to GDP ratio in their first years in office but by less than 1%.

Don’t be fooled, President Trump has increased the US debt by a fraction of that of Obama and the debt to GDP ratio is decreasing. As a result America is moving in the right direction for the first time in at least a decade.

Text Messages Between Corrupt FBI and Mueller Investigators Strzok and Page Implicate Hillary Clinton

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Yesterday we reported that a text message from corrupt FBI lovers and former Mueller investigators implicated former President Barack Obama as being involved in the Obamagate scandal! Now today another bombshell – a text released yesterday also implicates Hillary Clinton as being involved in Obamagate as well!

Yesterday FOX News reported a HUGE report implicating President Obama in the Russia – Obamagate scandal –

Newly revealed text messages between FBI paramours Peter Strzok and Lisa Page include an exchange about preparing talking points for then-FBI Director James Comey to give to President Obama, who wanted “to know everything we’re doing.”

The message, from Page to Strzok, was among thousands of texts between the lovers reviewed by Fox News. The pair both worked at one point for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Page wrote to Strzok on Sept. 2, 2016 about prepping Comey because “potus wants to know everything we’re doing.” Senate investigators told Fox News this text raises questions about Obama’s personal involvement in the Clinton email investigation.

Today there is evidence that Hillary Clinton was involved in the scandal as well. In the release of text messages from Senator Ron Johnson’s Office, on page Page 433 of the 502 page document, on November 4, 2016, in the aftermath of Comey’s presser about Weiner’s laptop somebody, “her” called to give the FBI hell. Strozk’s was declining to talk to Jim [Comey].

Page writes:

“No Pete. lt’s your JOB And plus she actually knows what you’re doing this time. And that the American presidential election, and thus, the state of the world, actually hangs in the balance”

Now who do you suppose “she” was?

Corrupt lovers Strzok and Page both worked at the FBI. As a matter of fact, they were both very high up at the FBI and are both very corrupt. Strzok is famous for his activities in protecting Hillary Clinton from criminal charges in 2016. CNN reports

Electronic records show Peter Strzok, who led the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server as the No. 2 official in the counterintelligence division, changed Comey’s earlier draft language describing Clinton’s actions as “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” the sources said.

Both these characters were selected by Robert Mueller to assist in his Russia – Trump farce investigation along with a team of similar characters – all Clinton and Obama cronies.

The tide is turning and the real crooks are slowly being identified. Buckle your seatbelts!
