Pence says Trump offered to resolve shutdown dispute, but Dems rebuffed him

Contrary to the nonsense from Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, it is the Democrats who have refused to sit down with President Donald Trump to resolve the government shutdown.

“[Trump] directed our team to reach out to Dems & we met several times before Christmas. We met w/ [Chuck Schumer] & presented a good-faith offer to resolve this issue & achieve a principled compromise – only to find out after Christmas that the Dems stopped negotiations all together,” Vice President Mike Pence wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

There is Always a Middle Ground
In government, you more or less know you are never going to get everything you want.

The beauty of our political system is supposed to be that both sides get something they can live with.

For decades now, though, our politicians have forgotten the art of compromise.

Going back to the days of former president Ronald Reagan, our government has been more or less hamstrung by partisanship.

If Republicans get the White House, they push through their legislation.

When the Democrats take over, they undo everything the Republicans did and force their own legislation through.

We saw this throughout both Bush administrations, the Clinton administration, and the Obama administration.

Trump vowed he would bring his negotiating skills to the table and change all that.

Initially, it seemed as though it was working … until we got to the fundamental issues on which he campaigned, like border security.

That middle ground that politicians are supposed to find is now completely gone and it does not appear as though they will find it again anytime soon.

Not Willing to Budge
Pelosi just took over as House Speaker and promised to create bipartisan legislation, as Americans deserve.

While saying that, both she and Schumer have rallied their party to completely walk away from the table with President Trump.

The ONLY way they will come back is if they get their way, period.

Trump has thrown out a request for $5 billion for the border wall.

Most conservatives believe if a good-faith agreement is made, he will compromise and reopen the government for far less.

The problem, though, is that Trump would be able to check off another box in his list of campaign promises, and that’s just not acceptable for Democrats.

Do You Believe Pence That Dems Are Refusing to Negotiate?
Yes
No
Next
They have the House, and they will not stop this obstructionist behavior until they have both the Senate and the White House back in their control.

For the Democrats, this is all about power. Period.

Trump: If Supreme Court upholds DACA, it will give president ‘tremendous power’
January 4, 2019 by Jerry McCormick
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/trump-warns-supreme-court/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pna

President Donald Trump just made an observation that Democrats would do well to consider.

The president pointed out that if the Supreme Court upholds former President Barack Obama’s DACA order, it will give the office of the President of the United States — currently held by Trump — far too much power. And that’s the last thing the Democrats want.

Fair Point
The president’s comments came as the government shutdown continues over the Senate’s refusal to include border wall funding in the new spending bill. While one lawmaker has proposed a solution to the shutdown that included protection for the so-called DREAMERS, Trump indicated that he preferred to let the high court handle the case first.

“I just think that we’re better off waiting for the Supreme Court,” Trump said. “If the Supreme Court rules that President Obama was wrong, which they should, because, by the way, if he was right, then I’ve been given tremendous power.”

“Can you imagine me having that power, wouldn’t that be scary?” Trump continued. “Right? No, if Pres. Obama is allowed to do what he did on DACA, then I’m allowed to whatever I want to do on things that probably… a president doesn’t have the right to do.

SCOTUS and DACA
One of the upcoming issues for the Supreme Court will be to make a final ruling as to whether or not DACA is unconstitutional.

It’s an argument that has been going on ever since Obama penned the order in 2012. DACA is also a perfect example, many believe, of a presidential power grab.

Trump expects the Supreme Court to rule against DACA, but there is always a chance they will uphold it.

That’s not good for anyone, Trump pointed out, because it would set a precedent that puts an unseemly amount of power in the hands of the President of the United States.

Bargaining Chip
A secondary reason Trump is hoping the Supreme Court shoots down the DACA legislation is that it will give him a bargaining chip over the building of the border wall.

Without DACA in place, the Democrats will be scrambling to find a solution for the DREAMERS — and Trump may be considering offering the Democrats something in return for wall funding.

This is a bargain most conservatives would not like, but would probably be willing to accept in return for border security.

That is what is known as compromise — which, to this point, Democrats have not been willing to do.

Whether the Supreme Court justices know it or not, they hold the success of this administration in their hands right now.

Do You Think the Supreme Court Will Overturn DACA?
Yes
No
Next
Trump does not want power he does not deserve. If he did, he would be hoping the Supreme Court will allow DACA to stand.

What he does want, however, is for Democrats to come to the table and negotiate in good faith. That will only happen if the Supreme Court does the right thing and shreds the unconstitutional legislation that is DACA.

Trump Impeachment Articles Introduced
January 3, 2019
The new Democratic majority was sworn into the House of Representatives on Thursday, and the new majority wasted no time in getting started on the top priority for most Democrats: Impeaching President Donald Trump.

KTLA reported that Democrat California Rep. Brad Sherman announced that he would re-introduce Articles of Impeachment on the first day of the new Congress. He had previously introduced similar Articles of Impeachment in 2017.

Sherman explained that his goal was simply to force a conversation about impeachment while party leaders have been cautioning members to hold off and wait until Special Counsel Robert Mueller completed his investigation and submitted a final report.

“I didn’t do this as some political move, I did it in July of 2017, about as far away from an election as a House member ever gets,” said Sherman. “Now I’m making sure not to take a step backward. We had to either take a step backward or not take a step backward.”

Trump believes the Supreme Court will uphold overturn of Obamacare
January 3, 2019 by Jerry McCormick
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/supreme-court-overturn-obamacare/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pna
Even though Dems are now in control of the House, they may soon get some very bad news from the Supreme Court.

President Donald Trump believes the high court will uphold a recent decision by a Texas judge that would render their prized Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act, unconstitutional.

If that happens, Dems will have to work hand-in-hand with Republicans to create a new health care package for Americans.

In the Court’s Hands
One of the very first issues the Supreme Court will decide on when they start their new term this month is the decision by District Judge Reed O’Connor on Obamacare.

O’Connor deemed that the individual mandate part of the law unconstitutional.

Without that provision, Congress doesn’t have the authority from the Constitution to enact the rest of the law, meaning that the entire legislative package was struck down by the Texas judge.

Democrats Left Steaming
Democrats were furious when O’Connor handed down his decision.

They soon stated that they plan on appealing his decision ASAP.

But President Trump believes their appeals will be futile.

“That case from Texas should win in the Supreme Court,” Trump said.

“We should win at the Supreme Court, where this case will go. When we do, we will sit down with the Democrats and we will come up with great health care,” the president added.

Do You Think the Supreme Court Will Uphold the Texas Judge’s Ruling?
Yes
No
Next
The Irony of It All
It is pretty ironic that a Republican-controlled Congress, Senate, and White House failed to overturn Obamacare during Trump’s first two years.

Now, with Democrats in charge of the House, it would be a slap in the face for the one piece of Obama’s legacy that is still somewhat intact to come tumbling down while the blue party holds the majority.

But with a conservative tilt on the Supreme Court, it is hard to imagine this case coming down in Democrats’ favor.

They will no doubt cry to the high heavens about it, but they will finally have no other option than to do their jobs and compromise with the GOP on a solution — something they’ve failed to do for decades.

Newly Elected Dem Rep Goes on Profanity-Laced Rant Threatening to Impeach Trump
by Team Bongino
January 4, 2019
https://bongino.com/newly-elected-dem-rep-goes-on-profanity-laced-rant-threatening-to-impeach-trump/

Hours after being sworn into office, newly elected Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI) went on a profane rant threatening to impeach President Trump.
“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er,’” said Tlaib at a MoveOn event near Capitol Hill.

Tlaib is the first Palestinian American elected to Congress and one of two Muslim women sworn in to the 116th Congress.

Tlaib’s comments, as Fox News points out, come after the Detroit Free Press published her op-ed which called for President Trump’s impeachment:

“President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country. On an almost daily basis, he attacks our Constitution, our democracy, the rule of law and the people who are in this country,” Tlaib wrote. “Each passing day brings more pain for the people most directly hurt by this president, and these are days we simply cannot get back. The time for impeachment proceedings is now.”
Tlaib wasn’t the only Democrat focused on impeachment yesterday.
In a desperate attempt to thwart the president’s agenda, Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman (CA) filed articles of impeachment against Trump..

Sherman accused the president of obstructing justice for firing disgraced, leaking FBI Director James Comey and intimidating Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Sherman’s move prompted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) to call out his colleague, writing on Twitter, “We knew they couldn’t help themselves. Rep. Sherman files articles of impeachment on the President. Dems are more focused on stopping Trump than building the Wall and helping the country.”

Canadian man arrested for trespassing at White House

A Canadian man was arrested on Wednesday for trespassing at the White House.

The man reportedly said he wanted to give President Donald Trump some Crown Royal whiskey.

Odd Visit
Just after midnight on Wednesday, Yianny Georgopoulos allegedly moved a barricade to get to the White House.

He received several warnings from Secret Service that he was in a restricted area.

Eventually, Georgopoulos was arrested and questioned.

He told authorities he just wanted to drop off a couple of bottles of booze for the president, a strange gift given that it is widely known that President Trump has never touched a drop of alcohol in his life.

Georgopoulos allegedly also wanted Trump to help him find a wife.

But while these requests may be somewhat comical, the trespasser isn’t as innocent as he seems.

Deranged
According to reports, Georgopoulos was recently arrested for both stalking and threatening family members.

This makes it clear how dangerous life is for both Trump and Secret Service agents protecting him.

Do you think Secret Service does a good job?
Yes
No
Next
In recent years, we have seen dozens of attempts by individuals trying to get to a sitting president at the White House.

Thankfully, our presidents are surrounded by professionals who take their job seriously and ultimately end these threats before they ever get close to the man in the Oval Office.

Former GOP congressman predicts Trump will be forced out of office in 2019

With a new year always comes prognostications and we have a doozy.

John LeBoutillier, a former Republican Congressman, predicts that President Donald Trump will be forced out of the White House in 2019, leaving space for a new and unexpected candidate to take control of the White House.

Harsh Criticisms
LeBoutiller was less than complimentary of Trump in his op-ed for The Hill.

Much of what he believes will happen is because two of the individuals who many thought were “controlling” Trump — former SecDef James Mattis and former Chief of Staff John Kelly — have resigned from the administration.

Now that they are gone, LeBoutiller believes Trump will attempt to carry out many of the plans he has threatened in the past without anyone getting in his way.

LeBoutiller has also predicted a massive downturn in the economy due to skepticism about Trump’s policies.

He specifically cited the “trade wars” Trump is creating with perceived allies of the United States.

Legal problems are also brewing for the president, according to LeBoutiller.

With Mueller reportedly wrapping up his special counsel investigation, the former GOP Congressman believes much of Trump’s private life — meaning his private business dealings — will land him in even more trouble.

LeBoutiller went so far as to say that Trump put himself up for sale to the highest bidder to win this election.

Do You Think Trump Will Be Ousted from the White House?
Yes
No
Next
Fresh Faces?
LeBoutiller also believes that the Democrats will need to pick a new face for 2020, naming former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke as a “formidable candidate.”

O’Rourke, however, is the same Democrat senatorial candidate that could not even win within his own state.

A new candidate will emerge from the Republican party as well, LeBoutiller predicts, as he says Trump will not even make it past June of this year.

But the “Trump hangover” will create upheaval in the party, dooming it for the 2020 presidential election and beyond.

Mind you, this is all conjecture from someone that obviously hates Trump and is hoping for the worst just so he can say, “I told you so.”

Howard Dean says Dems aren’t negotiating because Trump is ‘mentally incapacitated’
January 1, 2019 by Jerry McCormick
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/dean-says-trump-mentally-incapacitated/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pna
Of all people, Howard Dean is questioning the sanity of our president.

Dean recently stated he believes the Democrats aren’t negotiating with Trump because he is “mentally incapacitated.” 

“I actually think the president is mentally incapacitated and I have thought so for quite some time,” Dean said Sunday on MSNBC.

The Scream
Dean is a former chair of the DNC — but that’s not his main claim to fame.

What everyone remembers him for is his insane scream after a primary win in 2004.

The video of it actually went viral…

Doubting the President
Dean has bought into the narrative that the president is constantly lying to the American people.

“He says things that he knows aren’t true and that somehow he thinks people are going to believe, and they just don’t,” Dean stated.

That, according to Dean, is why Democrats will not sit down at the table with Trump to bargain over immigration.

Dean stated, “You can’t really make a bargain with somebody who is irrational, because they won’t keep it.”

What Dean failed to mention is the fact Democrats have no intention of actually sitting down to bargain in good faith.

They have been adamant there will never be any funding released for the wall.

Democrats know this was a major platform issue for Trump when he ran for president.

That being the case, they are going to do everything in their power to prevent him from fulfilling that promise — solely to sabotage him.

While they have approved $1.6 billion towards immigration, they did so with the stipulation the money cannot be used for building the wall.

Do you support Donald Trump?
Yes
No
Next
Dean’s comments are nothing more than Democrat posturing and deflection.

They are the ones that could not be trusted even if they were willing to come to the bargaining table.

Trump ‘missing’ from Oval Office – or so the media thought
January 1, 2019 by Jerry McCormick
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/trump-missing-from-oval-office/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pna
Image Source: Screenshot
The lengths the media will go to in order to take a shot at Trump has sunk to a new low.

Over the holidays, rumors began to circulate that Trump was not actually working in the Oval Office over the holidays as he said.
Where is Trump?
The Daily Mail published an article challenging whether President Trump is actually still at the White House.

Their reasoning is that since there is no Marine sentry posted outside the West Wing, Trump is lying about staying in D.C.

It has gotten to the point the media has taken photos of the outside of the West Wing to prove there is no Marine guard on duty.

When the White House was asked why the Marine guard was not on duty, it had no response.

The media has based its assumptions on Trump’s secret trip to see the troops over Christmas.

Even though they were never alerted to the trip, Trump managed to visit the troops in Iraq the day after Christmas.

It is normal protocol for such a trip to be kept secret since the president is traveling to hostile territory.

White House pushes back
White House staff has pushed back against the claims the president is not in the White House.

One staffer stated he had walked into the Oval Office and Trump was at his desk working.

Trump pushed back against the rumor too, tweeting Monday, “I’m in the Oval Office. Democrats, come back from vacation now and give us the votes necessary for Border Security, including the Wall. You voted yes in 2006 and 2013. One more yes, but with me in office, I’ll get it built, and Fast!”

That was not good enough for the media, however, as they have continually pushed the narrative Trump is lying about being in the White House this weekend.

Trump has not made an actual public appearance since Friday night, when he dined with Vice President Pence.

So, in their eyes, that is all the proof they need to spread a rumor.

It has actually gotten so bad, the media is splitting hairs, saying that even if he was in the White House, he was not actually in the Oval Office.

Do You Believe Trump is at the White House?
Yes
No
Next
This is the state of our media today.

They would rather play Where’s Waldo than cover stories of actual importance to the American people, such as the fact Democrats are refusing to negotiate with Trump on the border wall.


Trump takes shot at Elizabeth Warren, suggests speaking with her psychiatrist

The first shots of the 2020 presidential campaign have officially been fired.

After Sen. Elizabeth Warren announced her bid for the presidency, President Donald Trump took a jab at her mental stability.

Poking the Bear
Warren’s supporters received an email this week alerting them to the fact Warren is launching an exploratory committee.
Doing so allows her to raise campaign funds for the 2020 presidential election.
We have long suspected she was laying the groundwork for a run.
Pete Hegseth asked the President if he thought Warren really thought she had a real shot at winning the presidency, to which Trump answered, “Well, that I don’t know. You’d have to ask her psychiatrist.”

Liar!
Warren is going to have some real credibility problems once the campaign season gets rolling.

For years, she tried to tell the American people she was a minority with Cherokee blood.

After finally taking a DNA test, it was revealed she has about as much Cherokee in her as the tip of a pinhead.

Test results showed she had someone in her family maybe six generations ago that had Native American heritage.

When the results were published, even the Cherokee Nation came out against her, calling it insulting.

Warren recently spoke at a commencement speech, where she finally admitted she no claims to be a minority.

The damage has been done, though, as that will more than likely be the single most asked question during her campaign.

Do You Think Warren Can Win the Presidency?
Yes
No
Next
She misled everyone to take advantage of a minority status she did not qualify for.

To Trump’s point, Warren lives in a fantasy world in her head and is hardly someone anyone can seriously consider to be president of the United States.

US President Donald Trump has said that his administration will be setting up another meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the “not too distant future.”
Speaking to reporters at the White House on Wednesday, Trump said he had received a “great” letter from Kim and expected to meet with him soon.
Trump defended his policy on North Korea and said that there would have been a “big fat war in Asia” if he had not sat down with Kim during their historic summit in Singapore last June.

US is stalling North Korea denuclearization by refusing to make concessions – analysts
The US president also told reporters that he had never emphasized the speed at which Pyongyang would need to denuclearize. In his New Year address on Tuesday, Kim said that he was willing to go forward with denuclearization to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula, but said that he could reverse course if the US "clings to sanctions and pressure" to get what it wants.

Kim said he was "always ready" to sit down with Trump to come to an agreement, but that Pyongyang "could be left with no choice" but to "seek a new way" if Washington reneges on its promises or "misjudges our patience." 

Kim also called on South Korea to put an end to war games with the US on the peninsula, saying that they were "outside interferences" intended to block reconciliation between the two countries.

North Korea's planned denuclearization has stalled since the Singapore summit, with Pyongyang blaming Washington's refusal to lift sanctions. Last month US special representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun said that the Trump administration had "no intention" of easing its North Korea sanctions.

Kim pledges denuclearization, but warns N. Korea will seek ‘a new way’ if US flouts promises
Some experts have been skeptical about Washington's ability to meet Pyongyang halfway, with Andrew Leung, an international and independent China specialist, telling RT that "the Trump administration does not appear the most reliable administration in the world” and that it is “prone to changing tactics.”

"On part of the North Koreans, they see that they have improved the relationship, they have improved the atmosphere over the Korean peninsula, and they expect to see, at least, some easing of the sanctions and they are not seeing that," Leung said.

President Trump called-out congressional Democrats from the Oval Office Monday; demanding left-wing legislators return to the nation’s capital and fully fund border security.

“I’m in the Oval Office. Democrats, come back from vacation now and give us the votes necessary for Border Security, including the Wall. You voted yes in 2006 and 2013. One more yes, but with me in office, I’ll get it built, and Fast!” tweeted the Commander-in-Chief.

Trump’s comments come as congressional leaders have failed to reach a bipartisan budget agreement; with House Minority Leader and potential Speaker of the House calling the president’s “border wall” a “non-starter” for Democrats.

Brit Hume slams Soledad O’Brien for criticism of Trump’s Iraq trip
December 28, 2018
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/pop-culture/tv/hume-slams-soledad-critcism.htm
Johnny Silvercloud / CCL
Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien subjected herself to a well-deserved social media ribbing after she ludicrously proclaimed that President Donald Trump only visited troops in Iraq over the Christmas holiday because he was publicly shamed into taking the trip.

In a sarcastic response garnering nearly 30,000 “likes” on Twitter, Fox News host Brit Hume humiliated his ex-CNN rival in a scorching rebuke. “Yes, Ma’am,” he said. “Trump read this tweet when it was posted and time-traveled himself back to yesterday and flew to Iraq. Genius take.”

Brilliant!
First, the liberal mainstream media prematurely reported that Donald Trump would be the first president since 2002 to skip a Christmastime visit to troops stationed overseas. Then, reporters were forced to backpedal and issue retractions after discovering that Trump and the first lady departed the White House during the late hours of Dec. 25 for Iraq.

NBC News, MSN, Newsmax, MSNBC, The Daily Beast, Complex Magazine, and the HuffPost were just a few of the dozens of outlets reporting that Trump broke a 16 year White House tradition by visiting with American service members on Christmas Day. But Trump would act like the Grinch who stole Christmas from the left when he made an unannounced trip to Al Asad Airbase in Iraq.

To justify their abysmal reporting, the mainstream press sought to portray the outing like a clandestine CIA operation — because how else could so many journalists get the story so abhorrently wrong? “President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump were quietly whisked out of the White House under the cover of darkness on Christmas night for a trip to Iraq,” wrote CNN.

Speaking too soon
Before news of this super-secret overnight mission was published, however, liberal darling and out-of-work actress Alyssa Milano shared an NBC News story trashing Trump for ostensibly breaking with presidential tradition by failing to meet with troops.

A real first
Trump followed up his warzone visit to Iraq with a trip to Germany, and was received warmly by the troops. Rather than celebrate the occasion, though, the perpetually backbiting media stirred controversy again by suggesting that Trump was politicizing the military by signing red MAGA hats belonging to several service members stationed in Iraq and Germany.

The president dismissed the controversy, tweeting, “If these brave young people ask me to sign their hat, I will sign. Can you imagine my saying NO?” and adding that he had not distributed the hats.

Melania Trump’s Iraq visit was the first time an acting first lady has visited a combat zone since Lady Bird Johnson traveled to South Vietnam in 1969. But don’t expect this historical footnote to be featured in any mainstream media headlines.

9 low points in Israel-Jewish Diaspora relations in 2018
Donald Trump, President of the United States of Hate?
Trump just gave the finger to his Jewish voters
When your beat is covering Israel, the Middle East and the concerns and controversies impacting Jewish communities around the world, it’s a given that the news - and how it can be parsed, contextualized and critiqued - never stops.

This year was no exception: from the shocking massacre of Jews at prayer in Pittsburgh, to the Khashoggi murder which threatened to upend Netanyahu’s 'New Middle East'; from resurgent hyper-nationalism and Holocaust revisionism in Europe, to the mainstreaming of evangelical fundamentalism in the U.S.; from an apparently endless pit of anti-Semitism in UK Labour to Farrakhan-washing in the Women’s March; from an Iran ‘liberated’ from the nuclear deal - and from U.S. forces in Syria; from months of protests, bloodshed and air strikes between Israel and Gaza to an ever-more embedded Israeli occupation, slashed U.S. humanitarian aid, injections of Qatari cash and an endlessly deferred Trump peace plan, and now the announcement of Israeli elections next April.

Here are 31 op-eds that give a taste of the issues that have buffeted the Mideast and the Jewish world, as addressed in Haaretz op-eds: a range of opinions that I’ve chosen to both challenge and validate your politics, that may cause distress, even disgust, or recognition and endorsement. A range of opinions whose publication in Haaretz embodies our provocative and defiantly liberal values, the same values increasingly under threat here and around the world from hyper-partisanship, intimidation, superficiality and agitprop. I doubt you’ll enjoy them all - but I hope you’ll give them a hearing.

Expert says Donald Trump may be impeached in 2019
Image Source: Screenshot
Steven Okun has one of the more powerful political voices in the country, and he believes a dire warning is necessary.

Okun has little doubt once Democrats take over the House, they will do everything in their power to start impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

Looming Problems
Today’s Democrat party has three things on its current agenda:

— Obstruct Trump from accomplishing anything

— Protect undocumented immigrants

— Impeach Trump

With it now being only days away from Democrat control of the House, the uncertainty of this country’s political future has started to trickle down into the investment world.

Much of that uncertainty is linked to the very real possibility of Trump being impeached by the House.

Okun, who is a senior advisor at McLarty Associates, a geopolitical consulting firm, stated, “Democrats will do something on impeachment next year.”

The Bigger Shutdown
If Democrats decide to move forward with impeachment, Okun fears Washington D.C. will shut down.

He was not referring to the current government shutdown over the budget, either, but a complete shutdown by the current administration.

As we saw with Bill Clinton, an impeachment process takes up significant time and effort by a sitting president.

Okun believes this administration will be so preoccupied fighting the impeachment, it will have little time to focus on anything else, which is exactly what Democrats want.

He further stated, “I think 2019 is going to make 2018 look tame in comparison … I’ve never seen such nervousness in the U.S. business community as I’ve seen now.”

It is important to note here, the impeachment process, if it does happen, will not go any further than the House.

It is unlikely a Republican-controlled Senate would move forward because as of now, there is simply no proof Trump did anything wrong.

There are, however, two significant problems, one of which Okun mentioned.

First, the administration will be too tied up in impeachment proceedings, Trump will be ineffective for his next two years, paving the way for a Democrat win in 2020.

Do You Think the House Will Move to Impeach Trump?
Yes
No
Next
The second point, in addition to the investment problems, is that countries will be less inclined to make deals with Trump because they have no idea if he will be president moving forward.

This is a very dangerous time for Americans because it is clear Democrat representatives have clearly forgotten they are supposed to be in office for the people, not to further their own personal agendas against a president they despise.

SARAH SMACKDOWN: Huckabee Sanders SHREDS CNN for Attacking Pro-Trump Troops
posted by Hannity Staff - 4 hours ago
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders utterly unloaded on CNN this week; blasting the network after suggesting pro-Trump troops were “violating a military rule” by having the president sign their iconic ‘MAGA’ hats.

“Troops bringing President Trump ‘Make America Great Again’ hats to sign may have violated a military rule,” tweeted CNN after images of the Commander-in-Chief meeting US troops in Iraq surfaced on social media.

Democrats are trying to make President Trump as miserable as possible, and they are succeeding.

Christmas got canceled for Donald Trump, as he remained behind at the White House while his family flew to Florida to celebrate the holiday.

Trump made everyone aware of the fact he was alone at the White House with a Christmas Eve tweet: “I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security. At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy!”

Standing Firm
Early last week, there were rumors Trump was going to bend on the wall and accept a $1.6 billion spending bill for immigration by Democrats.

The caveat to that legislation was that the money in the bill could not be used for the construction of the wall.

It did not take long for Trump’s base to voice their opinion on the matter, with many telling the president shutting down the government was okay with them if it meant getting funding for the wall.

In a last-minute pivot, Trump said that he would not sign the legislation as it was written, absolutely stunning Democrats, who thought they had a deal.

Trump decided to stay behind in Washington while everyone else in his family went to Mar-a-Lago in the hopes Democrats would break and give him the budget he wanted. “I am in the Oval Office & just gave out a 115 mile long contract for another large section of the Wall in Texas. We are already building and renovating many miles of Wall, some complete. Democrats must end Shutdown and finish funding. Billions of Dollars, & lives, will be saved!” he tweeted.

Time Running Out
In less than a week, the Republican edge in the House will be gone.

When the House goes back in session after the New Year, Democrats will officially have the majority and a completely new agenda.

Rather than worrying about Americans and the problems this country is currently facing, they will no doubt start to work in impeachment proceedings to try to oust Trump from office.

Even if they don’t succeed, there is little doubt they will have this administration so occupied with the impeachment that little if anything will be accomplished during the last two years of Trump’s term.

This is not only bad for Trump but also the Republican party.

Do You Support Trump Shutting Down the Government to Get Wall Funding?
Yes
No
Next
This is a major fail on the part of Senate Republicans, who still hold a majority, in that they were unable to get wall funding approved while Republicans are in charge of the White House, the Senate, and the House.

Trump saying he was alone in the White House was prophetic in a way, as he will surely be on his own over the next two years to get anything done for We the People.

Former CNN ‘Journalist of the Year’ winner confesses to falsifying reports
December 22, 2018

Former CNN ‘Journalist of the Year’ winner confesses to falsifying reports

A renowned journalist has just been exposed for writing fake news.

Claas Relotius, a star journalist and editor with the German magazine Der Spiegel, was internationally recognized for his work, and was even awarded “Journalist of the Year” in 2014 by CNN International. But Relotius, 33, was fired earlier this week after it was discovered that, over the past few years, he had falsified information in over a dozen stories, including a feature on supporters of President Donald Trump.

“Claas Relotius, a reporter and editor, falsified his articles on a grand scale and even invented characters, deceiving both readers and his colleagues,” Der Speigal announced on Wednesday.

Intentional falsification
Relotius did not come under suspicion until recently, when he was working with a partner on an article titled “Jaeger’s Border,” a story about a vigilante group patrolling the U.S. – Mexico border. The coworker, who also had a byline on the story, became suspicious and investigated.

Faced with his partner’s accusations, Relotius eventually confessed to falsifying parts of the story, as well as parts of at least 13 others, including several reports which had received or been nominated for journalism awards.

Upon being informed, Der Spiegel took action. In addition to firing Relotius, the magazine published an article detailing his “large-scale journalistic fraud.”

“Claas Relotius committed his deception intentionally, methodically and with criminal intent,” Der Spiegel wrote.

Stereotyping Trump supporters
One corrupted story, in particular, was titled “In a small town” — a story centered on Fergus Falls, Minnesota, where, he wrote, “people pray for Trump on Sundays.” Relotius’ obvious goal was to use this to paint a picture of a Middle America town that voted for Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

But according to Der Spiegel, Relotius used either false information or complete fabrications for the story.

“He invented grotesque lies and reported, for example, that the students at the John F. Kennedy high school drew their role models for the American dream as follows: ‘They did not draw a single picture of a woman,’ Relotius wrote. ‘One class drew Barack Obama, two drew John D. Rockefeller. Most of them drew Donald Trump.’ All of this is pure fiction,” wrote the magazine. “Every single bit is concocted bunk.”

Relotius invented a waitress with kidney disease who was unable to get treatment under Obamacare, a city administrator who was a virgin and did not want a female U.S. president (presumably Hillary Clinton), and a Fergus Falls student who went on a field trip to Trump Tower rather than the Statue of liberty.

He additionally lied about several aspects of the town, including that it had a welcome sign which read, “Mexicans Keep out” and that the movie “American Sniper” was still in theaters to sold-out crowds — despite the fact that it was two years after the movie release. He also described a scene from a downtown cafe that, in reality, doesn’t have windows.

Do you think this "journalist" is but one of many "fake news" anti-Trump reporters?
Yes
No
Next
“I’m sick”
According to Der Spiegel, when it confronted Relotius about his made-up news stories, he said, “I’m sick and I need to get help.”

In addition to losing his job at the German magazine, he was also stripped of the journalism awards he received from CNN in 2014. Der Speigel is continuing their investigation of Relotius’ work.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders torches Senate Democrats over failure to protect American citizens
December 23, 2018 by Jerry McCormick
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/sarah-sanders-torches-democrats/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pna

The entire Trump administration is frustrated with Democrats’ inabiilty to work with President Donald Trump on border security — especially Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

In fact, Sanders issued a scathing rebuke to a party that refuses to put Americans first last week, saying: “It’s a sad day in America when Mexican government is doing more to protect the American people than Senate Democrats.”

What About the People?
It seems the bulk of those elected to office have forgotten why they are actually in office.

They are called representatives for a reason; elected officials are supposed to support the will of the people.

Indeed, they are supposed to represent the voters that put them into office.

And above all else, they are supposed to put the welfare of American citizens first.

But that clearly is not happening right now.

While the president has been adamant that he wants to put America first, Democrats are continuing to put the welfare of individuals breaking the law to enter this country ahead of American citizens.

By definition, illegal immigrants are criminals. There is simply no other way to look at it.

Furthermore, they are criminals that should not even be in this country — but still, they are the priority of the Democratic Party.

Must Be Stopped
It has gotten so bad that Mexico is currently doing more to stop illegal immigrant into our country than our own government.

To this point, Sanders stated: “One thing that I think has been missed and didn’t get a lot of coverage yesterday was what we have worked out, what this administration has been able to do in conjunction with the Mexican government and the massive and monumental moment that took place yesterday where catch-and-release has ended.”

Shockingly, sanctuary cities and states in our own country are still practicing catch-and-release with undocumented immigrants.

Do you think Trump should get the $5 billion in funding he requested for the border wall?
Yes
No
Next
In a few notable cases, some of those released have gone on to commit horrific crimes against American citizens, including rape and murder.

Hopefully, Democrats will soon stop voting “no” on legislation simply because it was presented by Republicans, and actually consider the ramifications their actions have on those who voted them into office.

Trump Jr.’s girlfriend tells Americans they can have a merry Christmas because of Trump
December 21, 2018 by Jerry McCormick
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/merry-christmas-because-trump/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pna
Lux Blue / Shutterstock.com
Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of President Trump’s son, Donald Jr., says there is one person to thank this Christmas season: President Donald Trump.

Guilfoyle penned a recent op-ed on The Daily Caller wherein she made everyone aware of Trump’s achievements during his first two years in the White House.

A Merry Christmas
Americans have a lot to be thankful for this holiday season, and according to Guilfoyle, much of that came at the hand of our current president.

Guilfoyle was quick to point out some of the main achievements of this presidency had nothing at all to do with party and everything to do with Americans — all Americans — getting ahead.

For instance, the First Step Act was signed earlier in the week.

This bipartisan legislation was aimed at giving those who have served time in prison a second chance at life.

Along with this legislation, Americans are enjoying a robust jobs market — so robust, in fact, that even some of the most liberal publications have stated that they have never seen anything like it before.

One of the figures of which Trump is most proud is the record-low unemployment among African Americans.

While Barack Obama let minorities down on this front, Trump was not only able to get them back to work, but he also reduced the number of families collecting entitlement programs like food stamps.

Everyday people are actually prospering under this president — and Guilfoyle didn’t want readers to forget it in her editorial.

Presidential Policies
Guilfoyle went on to note that on the worldwide front, Trump has been working hard to flip trade deficits he believes are hurting American businesses.

He has taken on countries like Mexico and China, which have been taking advantage of the United States for decades.

Do You Think Trump is Doing a Good Job as President?
Yes
No
Next
He is also rebuilding our military and, finally, putting America first.

While the mainstream media tries to portray an administration in turmoil, Guilfoyle is adamant that 2019 should be filled with optimism, not the doom and gloom Democrats and liberals insist is in our future.

Video: Sarah Sanders’ best moments as press secretary revealed
December 20, 2018 by Jerry McCormick
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/video-sarah-sanders-best-moments-as-press-secretary-revealed/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pna
While we see her on almost a daily basis, it is truly hard to appreciate the nonsense Sarah Huckabee Sanders has had to deal with during her time as President Donald Trump’s press secretary.

A new video compiled by IJR is blowing up on social media, highlighting some of Sanders’ best moments defending the president and standing up to the media.

Watch below:

The Liberal Media
It is tough to remember there ever being a more difficult time for someone to be a press secretary for a sitting president.

From Trump’s very first day in office, his administration has been under attack.

Typically, a new president will get a bit of a grace period to allow the administration to take hold, but that never happened here.

It did not take long for Sanders’ predecessor, Sean Spicer, to give in.

Suddenly, Sanders was thrust into the role, enduring attack after attack by a media establishment that is obviously only interested in undermining the President.

Through it all, she has stood her ground and relentlessly countered the attacks.

Bogus Narrative
One of the more amusing moments highlighted in the video is when Sanders called out the media for being fake news.

There was a time when at least one quotable source was required for a story to be reported.

When there was not someone willing to go on the record, the editors had to be able to verify the story from at least two sources.

Today, media outlets like CNN need only hear a couple of people talking around a water cooler to declare them credible as an unnamed source.

How many times have we seen a story blow up on the internet only to have it debunked a few days later?

Do You Think Sarah Sanders is Doing a Good Job as Press Secretary?
Yes
No
Next
It takes a very strong person to stand up to such scrutiny and such an endless stream of attacks, yet Sarah Sanders has done exactly that.

One thing is for sure… if she ever decides to step down — and nobody could blame her for doing that at this point — the person that replaces here will have VERY big shoes to fill.

While pundits speculate Pence replacement, Trump stands with VP ahead of 2020

While pundits speculate Pence replacement, Trump stands with VP ahead of 2020
Michael Vadon / CCL
Rumors are once again circulating about a possible replacement for Vice President Mike Pence on Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential ticket — but according to one columnist, there’s no doubt the president is standing with his VP.

The latest replacement rumors stem from the Oval Office meeting last week wherein President Trump, flanked by a silent Pence, got in a heated battle with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nanci Pelosi (D-CA) about his long-promised border wall and a possible government shutdown to get the funding he needs. But according to columnist Joshua Spivak, there’s no need to worry about Trump replacing his 2016 running mate.

Sticking with his roots
Writing for the Los Angeles Times, Spivak maintained that “there are very few examples of a vice presidential choice mattering all that much to voters” in U.S. history.

“Some vice presidents have provided an energy boost for a particular ticket,” Spivak wrote, explaining, “Sarah Palin’s selection in 2008 created a stir in John McCain’s campaign, but it is unclear if she managed to help, hurt or do nothing for McCain’s ultimately unsuccessful campaign.”

Spivak went on to note that “vice presidential choices have made even less of a difference when a presidential candidate is seeking reelection. Incumbents run on their record, not their choice of running mates.”

Spivak, who runs The Recall Elections Blog and is a senior fellow at the Hugh L. Carey Institute for Government Reform at Wagner College, also asserted that “changing vice presidents can seem both desperate and disloyal,” another reason Trump is unlikely to replace him on the 2020 ballot.

Do you approve of Mike Pence's job performance as Vice President?
Yes
No
Next
Expanding his base?
But Spivak said that while “Trump will probably calculate that the value of replacing a VP is unlikely to be worth the cost,” there are some reasons for the president to ditch Pence, who was the governor of Indiana prior to moving to the White House.

“Among Trump’s evangelical supporters in particular, Pence is an asset (and an attractive fail-safe in case of impeachment), but because Trump has proved to have such a strong lock on his base, the upside of replacing Pence could compensate for the risks of getting rid of him,” Spivak wrote. “By getting a new running mate, Trump might be able to gain votes beyond that base.”

Moreover, rumors about Trump questioning Pence’s loyalty have been going around for some time now.

“In one conversation after another he has asked aides and advisers a pointed question: Is Mike Pence loyal?” a New York Times report from early November alleged of the president. “Mr. Trump has repeated the question so many times that he has alarmed some of his advisers.”

But the president shut down the rumors soon after via Twitter.

Trump continued his attack on the article later that day, saying that if the authors had asked him for a quote, he would have been happy to tell them that “Mike Pence is 100 percent. Not even a doubt about it in my mind. He’s been a trooper. He’s been with me from as soon as I won the primaries. I could not be happier.”

Meanwhile, outlets like Newsweek have already speculated on possible replacements for Pence, including outgoing U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.

Dershowitz: Campaign Finance Violations Doesn’t Mean Impeachment
By Staff Writer 
December 18, 2018 | 7:34 AM EST

On Monday, Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said he believes President Trump can’t be impeached for campaign finance violations caused by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.

During an interview on “The Laura Ingraham Show,” Dershowtiz said, “I don’t think [Trump]’s in trouble on campaign finance because people forget that a candidate can contribute as much as he or she wants to their own campaign. The only issue in the case is whether or not the hush money, which was legal, was paid properly.”

It does not seem to me that is an impeachable offense or an offense that would result in any kind of serious prosecution

“Was it done through personal funds, corporate funds, campaign funds?” Dershowitz added. “And we don’t know the answer to that question, so it does not seem to me that is an impeachable offense or an offense that would result in any kind of serious prosecution.”

Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison last week in federal court for breaking campaign finance laws twice when he made a deal with women claiming to have had affairs with Trump to remain silent prior to the 2016 election.  The prosecutors also charged him with tax and bank fraud which was the cause for the bulk of his prison sentence.
Cohen will serve three years concurrently with a two-month sentence for charges of lying to Congress about a possible Trump real estate project in Moscow.  This charge was added by special counsel Robert Mueller but recommended a reduced sentence for his cooperation.

The incoming House Judiciary Committee chairman, Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., may look into the sentencing memo from the Cohen case and try to turn that into a cause for impeachment.

“Whether they are important enough to justify an impeachment is a different question, but certainly they’d be impeachable offenses because even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office,” Nadler said to CNN early in the month.

Trump is currently not under investigation for any campaign violations caused by his former attorney.

Trump’s economic policies lead to record low unemployment among black Americans
December 9, 2018

Trump’s economic policies lead to record low unemployment among black Americans
Max Goldberg / CCL
President Donald Trump is continuing to deliver on his economic promises to all Americans, including minorities who have traditionally been left behind during times of progress. For the second time in a single year, the unemployment rate among black Americans fell to a record low of 5.9 percent in November as the U.S. economy continues to grow at a remarkable rate.

Rates haven’t been this low since the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) began tracking unemployment among ethnic groups in 1972. In fact, based on the shrinking employment gap between black workers and the rest of the labor force, economists have good reason to suspect that the current unemployment rate among African-Americans is the lowest ever experienced.

All-time record
The latest figures show that the overall unemployment rate remains at 3.7 percent for the third month in a row. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate among African-Americans fell by .3 percent in a single month, and the new record ties the low achieved in May.

Besides black workers, the most notable job gains went to adult men and workers who lack a high school diploma. Employers have complained that they don’t have the labor pool to fill jobs, so companies are staffing positions with people with lower education levels, causing the unemployment rate among workers who lack a high school diploma to decline to 3.5 percent — the lowest since December 2000.

Despite the rosy outlook, African-Americans continue to lag behind other groups and currently experience the highest rates of unemployment. Among Hispanics, for instance, the rate is 4.5 percent, while whites currently experience unemployment at 3.4 percent, and Asians stand at 2.7 percent.

A promise fulfilled
During his victory speech in November 2016, Trump promised to “be president for all Americans,” and so far, he seems to be on track. Thanks to the GOP tax reform bill, 90 percent of wage earners have experienced higher take-home pay since he took office, and employers are now increasing wages at rates not experienced since before the recession.

“Wage growth has been really solid in 2018…and is ending the year in a very strong place,” Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist at Glassdoor, told NBC News.

The Trump administration has also been successful in combatting poverty, which disproportionately affects black families.

“Average taxpayers with incomes between $10,000 and $20,000, a group that frequently claims refundable tax credits, will have no tax liability and receive an additional refund,” a Joint Economic Committee report from Congress states. According to the report, “those with less than $10,000 in income will see their taxes slashed by more than half.”

America first
Moreover, black men are the demographic most likely to benefit from immigration enforcement, since legal and illegal immigrants tend to take jobs from black communities. An Obama White House report from 2016 concluded that “immigration reform would raise the overall [labor] participation rate by bringing in new workers of prime working age.”

This means that President Trump’s tough stance on immigration is a boon to black workers. His administration has granted fewer visas and cut the number of refugees admitted every year.

“These are measures that will make our community safer and more prosperous,” Trump said in January. “These reforms are supported by the overwhelming majority of Americans.”

Indeed, a recent Harvard-Harris poll found that black Americans prefer reducing legal immigration more than any other demographic. A full 85 percent believe that the U.S. should allow fewer than the 1 million or more immigrants allowed entry before Trump, and 54 percent want to see just 250,000 legal immigrants allowed in the country every year.

Should Trump receive more credit for reducing unemployment rates among minority communities?
Yes
No
Next
Surprise, surprise
Many left-leaning pollsters have dismissed the results of Rasmussen polls showing that Trump enjoys a 36 percent approval rating among African-American voters. But even discredited leftist outlets like CNN have to admit: “It does actually seem that Trump has gained support among African-Americans since the 2016 election.”

Having branded the president as an unapologetic racist, Democrats can’t possibly fathom how their most loyal voters could tolerate Trump. In the words of the Democratic campaign strategist James Carville: “It’s the economy, stupid.”

Ex-federal prosecutor says ‘it’s clear’ President Trump will be indicted

Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor, believes dark days are ahead for President Donald Trump.

During a Fox & Friends interview, McCarthy said: “It’s clear that Trump is the target and he’ll be indicted eventually.”

New York Problems
Other than possible embarrassment and some bad press, not much is expected to come from the now-two-year-long investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

However, the case that was referred to New York prosecutors against former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen might be another matter altogether for President Trump.

McCarthy believes the language used by the courts in the Cohen case makes it quite clear that President Trump is the real target of the investigation.

He also believes that even though Trump is the sitting president and cannot be indicted while in office, that will not protect Trump.

McCarthy believes the case will go through the processes, leading to an indictment that will be pursued after Trump is no longer the president.

After reading the sentencing memo on Cohen, McCarthy said plainly: “I can’t come to any other conclusion.”

Trump Denials
All of this stems from “hush money” being paid to two women who claimed to have had affairs with President Trump.

One of the women, Stormy Daniels, was paid through Michael Cohen, then Trump’s attorney.

Cohen recently flipped on Trump and stated he was acting at the direction of Trump the entire time, something Trump claims is false.

Trump insists Cohen made the payment before advising him of it, but Cohen later requested reimbursement for the payment.

The president has admitted to paying Cohen, but he and his attorneys have stated that money was paid from private funds, not campaign funds.

Do You Think Trump Will Be Indicted for Campaign Finance Violations?
Yes
No
Next
This all comes down to who the courts are going to believe.

Is Trump simply lying to save his own skin or did Cohen lie and tell prosecutors what they wanted to hear in order to get a lighter sentence? Hopefully, we’ll have answers soon.

Economic adviser Larry Kudlow says Trump did not know about Huawei CFO arrest before making deal with China

Trade war tensions between the United States and China are now at an all-time high with the arrest and detention of Huawei’s CFO, Meng Wanzhou.

However, White House Economic Advisor Larry Kudlow insists that President Donald Trump was not aware of the move against Meng as he was negotiating a trade war truce with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Venezuela at the recent G-20 Summit. 

Why Meng Was Arrested
Meng is being held in Canada for violating sanctions put on Iran by the United States.

She has been in Canada since Dec. 1 awaiting extradition.

Canadian prosecutors have said that she was integral in helping Huawei, a major manufacturer of smartphones, dodge Iranian sanctions.

To add even more tension the situation, Meng also happens to be the daughter of the founder of the company.

Meng first appeared in court on Friday, but the judge has delayed the decision on whether she should be freed on bail.

Meng’s legal team has cited medical issues as part of her defense as to why she should be released.

Reportedly, after she was arrested, she was taken to the hospital to be treated for hypertension. Her attorney argued that this, in addition to her ties in Canada, does not make her a threat to flee to back to China.

The case is expected to resume on Monday with a decision by the judge.

Trade Future
The initial warrant for her arrest was issued and signed in late August, which led many pundits to believe that Trump knew about this and was not negotiating with China in good faith at the summit.

The Trump administration, however, has been adamant that the president was not made aware of the warrant and that it had no impact whatsoever in his stance with China.

Should Meng Be Released on Bail?
Yes
No
Next
Meanwhile, the market on Friday reflected the concern investors have on how this will impact the future of trade between the United States and China.

As the Asian markets opened on Monday morning, that plunge continued, as it did for futures here in the United States.


Congressman Mark Meadows for White House Chief of Staff?
By Staff Writer 
December 11, 2018 | 7:27 AM EST

Congressman Mark Meadows, R-N.C, recently put his name out there for the White House Chief of Staff position after John Kelly leaves at the end of the year.

In a statement to the Washington Examiner Meadows said, “serving as [White House] Chief of Staff would be an incredible honor.  The President has a long list of qualified candidates and I know he’ll make the best selection for his administration and for the country.”

In a jam-packed news weekend, President Trump announced that current White House Chief of Staff, John Kelly, would be leaving at the end of the year.  There has been much tension between Trump and Kelly for quite some time and some reports even suggest they’re no longer on speaking terms.

If Meadows took the job, President Trump could gain some political capital amongst Republicans and his base.  Meadows was first elected to the House in 2012 and is currently heads the House Freedom Caucus.  This caucus is known for very right-leaning ideology and sticks to their conservative principals.  As Chief of Staff, Meadows could walk the tightrope between the very conservative side of the party and Trump could win over the moderate Republicans.
The next chief of staff would undoubtedly have to deal with multiple congressional investigations that the Democrats are pushing.  Meadows has been a persuasive member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and could possibly help navigate the harsh road ahead with knowledge of operations and procedures.

It was rumored that the Nick Ayers, the current chief of staff for Vice President Pence, was set to take over the position for President Trump however Trump wanted a two-year commitment.  The 36-year-old Ayers is a father to three children and couldn’t commit to such a long term. He also announced over the weekend that he would be leaving his current position at the end of the year.

 Thank you @realDonaldTrump, @VP, and my great colleagues for the honor to serve our Nation at The White House. I will be departing at the end of the year but will work with the #MAGA team to advance the cause.
