OMB Head Mulvaney Says CBO Healthcare Budget Estimates Make No Sense

Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Head Mark Mulvaney was on Morning Joe today and he discussed the healthcare proposal. One thing that Mulvaney is clear about is that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is way off in its estimates with the healthcare proposal.

Mulvaney said:

Let’s say your on Medicaid. The House bill passes tomorrow. The CBO claims that you will go off of Medicaid. Ok. It’s a free program but the CBO assumes that as soon as the mandate is gone that you will give up something free in exchange for nothing. That makes no sense.

New York Daily News Reports President Trump was Golfing Yesterday – Except He Wasn’t

The New York Daily News tweeted that President Trump was golfing yesterday for the 9th time in 7 weeks.  They showed a picture of the President on a golf course in their tweet.  The problem was that this was not accurate.

In a tweet White House Director of Social Media Dan Scavino Jr. responded to the New York Daily News noting that their tweet was in error.  Scavino pointed out that the President appeared to be at a golf course but for a lunch meeting.

It is difficult to know if this was intentionally misleading or just poor journalism.

Turks Riot in Rotterdam – In 2015 Geert Wilders Told Turks – “You Are No Europeans…Freedom, Democracy, Human Rights – Are Incompatible with Islam”

Dutch riot police were on hand in Rotterdam last night as rioters carrying Turkish flags rioted in the streets.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan started the mess when he decided to plan events throughout Europe to extend his powers in Turkey’s April 16th vote by targeting millions of expatriate voters – including 1.4 million in Germany alone.  These plans were cancelled by various countries throughout Europe.

Last week, Mr Erdogan accused Berlin of “Nazi practices” after a number of his rallies were cancelled, drawing a sharp response from the German government.

Erdogan also described the Dutch government as “Nazi remnants and fascists”, after events in Rotterdam were cancelled by the Netherlands’ government.  Erdogan was hoping to harness the votes of some 400,000 Turks in Holland.  After a Turkish family member was blocked from going into Rotterdam, Turks in the city rioted. Eventually the Dutch riot police broke up the riots.

In December 2015, the Netherland’s anti-Islam leader of the Freedom Party, Geert Wilders, recorded a video directed at the people of Turkey:

Today I have a message for the Turks. Your government is fooling you into believing that one day you will become a member of the European Union. Well forget it. You are no Europeans and you will never be. An Islamic state like Turkey does not belong in Europe. All the ‘failures’ Europe stands for – freedom, democracy, human rights – are incompatible with Islam.

Wilders has stood up to Islamization of Europe for a long time.  

 

Enough is Enough! In Defense of the Gateway Pundit From the Bullying, Liberal Press

Yesterday Gateway Pundit (GWP) White House reporter, Lucian Wintrich, was accosted, harassed and abused in the White House Press room shortly before the White House Presser.  Fox News Radio employee Jon Decker was the perpetrator.  According to Wintrich, Decker pushed him in a back room and grabbed him by the arm and started screaming to the entire press room that Wintrich was a “Nazi” and the Gateway Pundit website is a “white supremacist” publication.

The far left main stream media (MSM) was quick to support Decker in his assaultPolitico published a piece by Hadas Gold that reported that Decker sent an email to the entire White House reporter email listserv noting that the White House “has admitted Gateway Pundit into today’s White House Press Briefing.”

Hadas pointed out that the MSM is threatened by the GWP reporter and noted the press room supported Decker’s attack:

Props to Jon Decker for speaking up in the press room. It would be much harder for a minority reporter to speak up like he did,” the correspondent said. “As a member of the WHCA board and as a white man him standing up and saying that meant a lot to reporters in the room.”

Politico noted that BuzzFeed White House correspondent Adrian Carrasquillo tweeted:

Fox News Radio John Decker just loudly told everyone in briefing room that Gateway Pundit is here ‘They hate blacks, Jews, Hispanics.’ Wild

Politico next reported that Decker denied he accosted Wintrich:

Earlier today I had a conversation with a representative from the online publication Gateway Pundit,” Decker said in a statement. “The conversation was straightforward and direct. I also informed the full White House pool that this representative was present in the Briefing Room. At no time did I accost or assault this individual. More than a dozen witnesses will attest to this fact.”

Politico finished with a piece from a Washington Post reporter that claimed the GWP posted fake news.

What we saw yesterday was the mainstream liberal media doing what it always does – attack conservatives by calling them vile, disgusting names, lie and then play the victim.

Enough is enough! 

I’ve personally watched Jim Hoft at the The Gateway Pundit build his online media publication into one of the most influential conservative websites in the US and arguably the largest political site in the Midwest.  He started with no funding and only a desire to share the truth.  Daily he wrote about the little guy or the individuals who stood for truth and liberty that were not being discussed in the MSM because they were conservative or the message didn’t fit the liberal agenda.

Daily Jim posted stories since 2004 that were omitted in the MSM or altered to a liberal point of view.  He slowly gained notoriety through perseverance and a great product.  The more successful he got the more rewards and also the more attacks.

Decker’s name calling couldn’t be further from the truth.  Lucian is not a Nazi or Jew hater and neither is Jim.  Lucian’s family fled Nazi Germany.  Also, a few years ago one group flew Jim and a couple select other conservative writers, including Andrew Breitbart, to Israel to show them the challenges the tiny nation had in protecting themselves from radical Islam.  Jim then met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and shares a picture of this visit on his website.

Jim is also a role model for the gay conservative and shows more courage than any FOX Radio hack.  Since 2004 the Gateway Pundit has been the beacon of hope for conservatives seeking a reprieve from the liberal MSM.  But as his numbers have grown, the attacks from the left have increased.

Jim has always demanded integrity in his articles and when corrections are necessary as they sometimes are in the media business, he makes them quickly.  But his work is so much more accurate than the ‘fake news’ the MSM spews daily.  This is why GWP readership is growing at an astronomical rate.  The GWP predicted a Trump win while the MSM carried ‘corrupt’ Hillary and ‘criminal’ Obama.  The GWP daily shares the stories not in the MSM (e.g. today’s US Debt decreasing under Trump, Obama has wire tapped before, etc.).  While the rest of the liberal media continues to run with factless Russian conspiracies the GWP knows this is all bunk.  This is why the GWP is successful, not because it is fascist, but rather because it stands up to the fascist liberal bullies in the mainstream media by sharing the truth that they do not want to be shared.

The GWP is “Where Hope Made a Comeback” and always will be.

Amazing: US Debt Decreased by More Than $60 Billion Since Trump Inauguration

The US debt reduced by more than $60 Billion since the Trump Inauguration!

On January 20th, the day of the Trump Inauguration, the US Debt stood at $19,947 billion. On March 8th, more than a month later, the US Debt load stood at $19,879 billion. Trump has cut the US Debt burden by $68 billion and 0.3% in since his inauguration!

By comparison, under President Obama, the US Debt burden increased by more than $320 billion after his inauguration through March 8th 2009. Obama increased the US Debt by 3.1% during this time period and signed the trillion dollar ‘Stimulus’ bill which is widely considered a colossal failure and waste of US tax dollars as well. The failed ‘Stimulus’ did not kick in till later in Obama’s first year leading to Obama’s first year deficit of $1.4 trillion. Overall Obama doubled the US Debt during his Presidency and set records for highest deficits and the largest debt increase by any President ever.

One month after the Trump Inauguration US Debt was down $12 billion now it is down $68 billion.

With Trump the stock market is up, jobs are increasing, salaries are increasing and debt is down…

Winning, Winning, Winning, Winning.

In First 4 Months After Election – DOW Increased by 14% After Trump Elected but Decreased by (29%) After Obama Elected

In the four months since the Presidential election on November 8th, the US stock market has risen in historic proportions. In the four months after President Obama was elected President in 2008 it was a much different story.

On November 8th, 2016, the day of the Presidential election, the DOW closed at 18,333.  At that time the DOW had not had a new high in nearly 3 months since August 15th.  Since then the DOW has exploded as expectations for economic recovery from Trump policies mount.  The DOW closed on March 8th, 2017 at 20,856 for an increase of 2,523 or 14% since the election.

Since the 2016 Presidential election the DOW has reached 32 new All Time highs and tied the DOW record for the most days in a row with All Time Highs at 12 days from February 9th through 27th.  The Trump Bull Market is Historical in many ways.

The market’s response after President Obama was elected in 2008 was the exact opposite.  The economy was is rough shape and the inexperienced new President offered ‘hope and change’ and economic growth killing policies.  As a result, the DOW closed at 9,625 on November 4th, 2008, the day President Obama was elected and fell 2,749 points over the next four months to a daily close of 6,876 on March 4th, 2009 for a decrease of 29%.

In summary, the DOW increased by 14% in President Trump’s first four months after being elected due to expectations for a more prosperous future while the DOW decreased by (29%) in the four months following Democrat Obama’s election.  The net difference in the DOW between these two Presidents is 43%.  

Obama offered ‘Hope and Change’ but it was the change America didn’t want.

 

US Intelligence Officer Lt Col Tony Shaffer: Americans Who Hated Clintons Hacked DNC and Gave Emails to WikiLeaks

Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer shared last night on Hannity on Fox News that former American operatives who were fed up with the Clintons are the ones who hacked into the DNC and gave the hacked Podesta emails to WikiLeaks. The Democrats do not want to talk about this and it is probably why the DNC refused to allow the FBI to look at it’s hacked server. Shaffer said:

Sean, we did it. Not me, but our guys, former members of NSA, retired intelligence officers used these tools to break in there and get the information out. That’s what the Democrats don’t want to talk about because it doesn’t fit their narrative.

Hannity called it all worse than any spy novel he can think of.

 

President Trump is Making Congress Look Bad – 34 Executive Actions to 4 Laws from Congress Signed to Date

President Donald Trump is making Congress look really bad, signing 34 Executive Actions to 4 Pieces of Legislation from Congress.

When the President released his plan for the first 100 days, he wasn’t kidding and Congress is no where near able to keep pace with the President. President Trump has signed 34 executive actions that include banning immigration to the US from certain terrorist nations; protecting law enforcement; enforcing regulatory reform; helping the coal industry; beating ISIS; nominating a new US Supreme Court Justice; building a border wall; completing the Keystone pipeline from Canada; and, killing the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

As Americans struggle with financial challenges due to Obamacare and a burdensome Federal tax regime, Congress continues to work no sense of urgency. After eight years of Obama you would think the Republican Congress would want to do more to overturn Obama policies and help the new Republican President with his agenda that won over Americans in spite of the constant attacks from the main stream media.

Yesterday the Speaker was on Tucker Carlson on Fox News and he said that the House had passed about 15 bills that were sent to the Senate. However, the White House shows that only four pieces of legislation have been signed by the President to date.

Hard working Americans who have had enough of ‘do nothing’ politicians. It’s time for members of Congress to stand up and replace President Obama’s horrible policies and fast.

Obamagate: House of Representatives Cloak Room Wire Tapped – Why Wouldn’t Obama Wire Tap President Trump?

The Main Stream Media and other enemies of the current President are challenging the proposition that President Obama wire tapped President Donald Trump during the 2016 Presidential race. President Trump started this discussion with his tweets over the weekend.

In his first tweet President Trump tweeted:

Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

In his final of four tweets concerning the wire tapping, the President tweeted:

How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

This is now being referred to as Obamagate!

it is not unfounded that former President Obama would wire tap President Trump during the election process. This is because he has done this before. We reported on Monday that the Obama Administration wire tapped more than a dozen individuals or groups who were wire tapped by former President Obama.

In addition to the list below, Obama was accused of wire tapping the House of Representatives cloak room in 2013 as well.

Congressman Devin Nunes (speaking to Hugh Hewitt) : No, I absolutely do not, especially after this wiretapping incident, essentially, of the House of Representative. I don’t think people are focusing on the right thing when they talk about going after the AP reporters. The big problem that I see is that they actually tapped right where I’m sitting right now, the Cloak Room.

Here is our list from Monday starting with a list from WikiLeaks (see link here):

* a private climate change strategy meeting between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin;
* Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targetting his Swiss phone;
* The Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception;
* Sensitive Italian diplomatic cables relating to Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu;
* Top EU and Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US “extort[ing]” them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed);
* Five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers;
* The phones of Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials for long term interception; and
* Details of a critical private meeting between then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berluscon, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to “pop like a cork”.

In addition to the above list we also reported that Obama wire tapped various individuals in the US media that were reporting information not flattering to the Obama Administration. It is widely known that Obama’s Justice Department targeted journalists with wiretaps in 2013:

* Fox News’ James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged but his movements and actions were tracked.
* Members of the Associated Press were also a target of the surveillance in a phone-records scandal.
* Reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in 2014 that her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to the Obama administration. A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware “proprietary to a government agency,” according to an article in the New York Post.
* WikiLeaks also tweeted that the Obama Administration spied on their journalists as well.

Obama is no stranger to wire tapping. His administration tapped phones and computers of friends and foe alike.

Attorney General Lynch Signed Off on ALL FISA Applications to WireTap Trump

The FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance) Court is in the news this weekend after President Trump tweeted that former President Obama had petitioned a court twice in order to wire tap current President Trump when he was running for office.

In his first tweet President Trump tweeted:

Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

He next tweeted:

Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!

The FISA Court was put in place in 1978 when Congress enacted the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA):

The Court sits in Washington D.C., and is composed of eleven federal district court judges who are designated by the Chief Justice of the United States. Each judge serves for a maximum of seven years and their terms are staggered to ensure continuity on the Court. By statute, the judges must be drawn from at least seven of the United States judicial circuits, and three of the judges must reside within 20 miles of the District of Columbia. Judges typically sit for one week at a time, on a rotating basis.

Pursuant to FISA, the Court entertains applications submitted by the United States Government for approval of electronic surveillance, physical search, and other investigative actions for foreign intelligence purposes. Most of the Court’s work is conducted ex parte as required by statute, and due to the need to protect classified national security information.

Every single judge on the FISA Court as of today was appointed during Obama’s Presidency!

Five of the current eleven judges on the court are scheduled to be on the court for President Trump’s entire first term with six of the judges’ terms expiring before January 2021. Seven of the judges are scheduled into the year 2020.

Current Chief Justice John Roberts has been in his role since 2005 and therefore he has appointed all the judges to the FISA court. Judge Roberts is famous for supporting Obamacare in two radical positions, one of which Justice Antonin Scalia, in his withering dissent, refered to as “applesauce”. Knowing this, it is concerning that Judge Roberts also is responsible for the makeup of the current FISA court.

Only two in over 10,000 applications were turned down by the FISA Court.
According to ABC News:

More than a thousand applications for electronic surveillance, all signed by the attorney general, are submitted each year, and the vast majority are approved. From 2009 to 2015, for example, more than 10,700 applications for electronic surveillance were submitted, and only one was denied in its entirety, according to annual reports sent to Congress. Another one was denied in part, and 17 were withdrawn by the government.

According to ABC, all applications to the FISA Court were signed off on by the Attorney General and therefore if any applications were processed in the past year, they were signed off on by Loretta Lynch. This means that Lynch signed off on any requests for wire tapping President Donald Trump during the Presidential race. This is disheartening knowing that she released a video over the weekend calling for the need for more marching, blood and death on the streets. This also means that she chose not to investigate the Clinton Foundation for illegal activities but rather signed an application to wire tap President Trump.

Finally, another very disturbing fact about the wire tapping request of President Trump is that the FISA Court turned down President Obama’s Administration’s first request to wire tap President Trump that was evidently signed off on by Attorney General Lynch. With only two applications denied out of 10,700 from 2009 through 2015, the fact that the Obama Administration’s application was denied by the FISA Court is very disturbing. The odds of this happening were 0.02%.

The Obama Presidency is now arguably the most corrupt in US history.
