Trump Hints at Firing Rosenstein, Cleaning Out DOJ in Charged Rally Speech
BY CILLIAN ZEAL 
SEPTEMBER 23, 2018 AT 6:42AM
https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/trump-hints-firing-rosenstein-cleaning-doj-charged-rally-speech/?
In President Donald Trump’s first speech after a New York Times story alleged Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had planned to surreptitiously record the commander in chief and explored the idea of invoking the 25th Amendment to have him removed from office, Trump talked of a “lingering stench” at the Department of Justice and promised more firings.

The remarks were made Friday, just hours after The Times published the article that suggested Rosenstein was willing to take measures that would be extraordinary for anyone in the Department of Justice, much less the deputy attorney general, against a sitting president.

“I want to tell you we have great people in the Department of Justice,” Trump told an audience in Springfield, Missouri, where he was campaigning for Josh Hawley, the Missouri attorney general challenging vulnerable Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill.

“We have great people. These are people — I really believe you take a poll, I’ve got to be at 95 percent,” he said.

TRENDING: New York Times Admits Experts Were Wrong About Trump’s Iran Policy. America Is Winning.

“But we had some real bad ones — you’ve seen what’s happened at the FBI. They’re all gone.

“But there’s a lingering stench and we’re going to get rid of that, too,” he said.

In terms of the FBI, the message was unmistakable: Former Director James Comey, former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe as well as anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page, have all been fired or left the Bureau.

And, as for the allegations leveled at Rosenstein by The Times, they’re pretty dire.

Do you think Rod Rosenstein should be fired?

“The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit,” the piece read.

“Mr. Rosenstein made these suggestions in the spring of 2017 when Mr. Trump’s firing of James B. Comey as F.B.I. director plunged the White House into turmoil. Over the ensuing days, the president divulged classified intelligence to Russians in the Oval Office, and revelations emerged that Mr. Trump had asked Mr. Comey to pledge loyalty and end an investigation into a senior aide.”

Rosenstein also reportedly “raised the idea of wearing a recording device, or ‘wire,’ as he put it, to secretly tape the president when he visited the White House. One participant asked whether Mr. Rosenstein was serious, and he replied animatedly that he was.”

Allies of Rosenstein said the comment was made in jest, and the deputy attorney general himself denied the gist of The Times’ article not once but twice.

“I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda,” a statement by Rosenstein included with the piece read. “But let me be clear about this: Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25th Amendment.”

A later statement by Rosenstein was more specific: “I never pursued or authorized recording the president and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the president is absolutely false,” he said Friday night, according to Forbes.

Will that end up saving Rosenstein? He has plenty of allies among Democrats, particularly Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer.

“This story must not be used as a pretext for the corrupt purpose of firing Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein in order install an official who will allow the president to interfere with the special counsel’s investigation,” Sen. Schumer said in a statement, according to Politico.

The statement also noted that other White House members, such as Defense Secretary James Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly “have been reported to say critical things of the president without being fired.”

Yes, well, neither of them apparently wanted to wear a “wire” to record the president as if he were a criminal suspect or invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

That’s quite a different thing entirely — and it leaves a stench President Trump may be eager to remove.

China tariffs hammer drops: Trump announces new duties on $200bn worth of Chinese goods

China tariffs hammer drops: Trump announces new duties on $200bn worth of Chinese goods

US President Donald Trump has announced import tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. China has promised to retaliate.
The move, which sees $200 billion worth of Chinese imports slapped with a ten percent levy, comes amid a deepening trade spat between the world’s two largest economies.
The tariffs will be applied to more than 1,000 Chinese products, including consumer goods like electronics, bicycles, tires, and furniture - all pumped out of Chinese factories in vast quantities for cheap export. The ten percent tariff will take effect on September 24, and rise to 25 percent on January 1, 2019.
In anticipation of Trump’s tariff announcement, major US stock market indexes closed on a down note. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 92.55 points, or 0.35 percent. The S&P 500 lost 16.18 points, or 0.56 percent, and Nasdaq dropped 114.25 points, or 1.43 percent.

The Chinese are expected to retaliate with commensurate tariffs on $60 billion in US goods, and may withhold vital raw materials to US firms. Chinese officials have suggested that planned talks between trade delegations from both countries will now not go ahead.

“China never said it doesn’t want to negotiate with the US,” Yang Weimin, a former senior economic and foreign policy adviser to President Xi Jinping, said Sunday, as cited by the Wall Street Journal. He added, however, that Washington should first “show sincerity” in its desire to resolve the trading dispute. “China is not going to negotiate with a gun pointed to its head,” the official noted.
Trump has been locked into a trade dispute with Beijing over China’s policy of forcing US companies to hand over trade secrets as a cost of doing business in China. Both countries have already slapped levies on $50 billion of each other’s exports. Currently, the US imports over half a trillion dollars worth of goods from China every year, while China imports $130 billion from the US.

President Trump defended his mercantilist policy on Monday, tweeting that “Tariffs have put the US in a very strong bargaining position, with Billions of Dollars, and Jobs, flowing into our Country - and yet cost increases have thus far been almost unnoticeable.”

The president, who has also engaged in trade battles with allies in the European Union and Canada then warned: “If countries will not make fair deals with us, they will be ‘Tariffed!’”
For China, Trump announced earlier this month that he has further tariffs on another $260 billion worth of Chinese imports “ready to go.” If all of Trump’s planned tariffs are applied, Monday’s levies, plus the existing $50 billion and planned $260 billion in tariffed goods would cover and exceed all of the US’ imports from China, a staggering $506 billion.

Report: Tension growing between White House and Defense Secretary James Mattis
September 16, 2018
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/conservative-news/reports-trump-firing-mattis.htm
Gage Skidmore / CCL
Secretary of Defense James Mattis relationship with President Donald Trump is deteriorating, fueling rumors that he might be the next member of the current Trump administration to go.

At least that is the claim of several anonymous Department of Defense (DOD) officials who recently spoke with the New York Times. 

DOD insiders: Mattis’ days are numbered
In Saturday’s article, these individuals describe a deteriorating relationship between President Donald Trump and Mattis — one in which both parties are unhappy and in which the best path forward appears to be separation.

This situation is, according to the report, best summed up by Trump’s own language. There once was a time, when he first achieved the presidency, that he referred to Mattis as “Mad Dog,” which — although the Times says Mattis dislikes it — was clearly a term of endearment.

But recently, “Mad Dog” has become “Moderate Dog,” signalling the president’s fear that Mattis might actually be a “Democrat at heart,” or at least harbor some Democratic points of view. And this, they say, is only the tip of the iceberg.

A good relationship goes bad
Over the past year, Trump and Mattis have locked horns repeatedly, disagreeing about everything from whether transgender people should be allowed to serve in the military, to whether the U.S. should engage in military exercises with South Korea, to whether Obama’s Iran deal should be upheld, and to the U.S.’s role in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

All the while, Mattis, particularly by the mainstream media, has been labelled as the “adult in the room,” who keeps President Trump and the other “children” in his administration from juvenile decisions. According to the insiders, such things have annoyed Trump.

This wasn’t helped by the recent Bob Woodward book that quotes Mattis as referring to Trump as someone with the intellect of a “fifth or sixth grader” — even though Mattis has referred to the book as a work of “fiction” and denied making any such comment.

Possible replacements
But this still isn’t all. These insiders go on to claim that Trump is not satisfied with Mattis’ vocal loyalty — or rather the lack thereof — to his administration.

Mattis has always been the quiet type politically, trying to protect his section of the government from political influences. But, the time has come, they say, in which Trump is looking for a more vocal leader.

But Trump may not be the only one looking to dissolve the relationship. According to some, Mattis too is getting tired of combating the president on various policy decisions.

Are you skeptical of this anonymously-sourced report that Trump plans to soon fire Defense Secretary Mattis?
Yes
No
With the possibility that Mattis’ time may be coming to an end, some have begun to look into possible replacements. Two names that have been floated are Republican senators Tom Cotton (AR) and Lindsey Graham (SC). Both, however, have already stated that they have no interest in the job.

And for now, it’s all just talk. While Trump certainly isn’t afraid of shaking things up to get better results, currently he’s happy with Mattis. Trump told reporters last week, “He’ll stay right there. We’re very happy with him. We’re having victories people don’t even know about.”

Trump green-lights new tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese imports
September 16, 2018
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/economics/trump-new-tariffs-chinese.htm?The Trump administration is getting ready to take some big steps in the U.S.-China trade war.
According to reports, President Donald Trump has given the go-ahead for new tariffs to be placed on as much as $200 billion of Chinese goods.

U.S.-China trade fight trudges on
Talk of new economic sanctions on China began in August when the administration threatened tariffs as high as 25 percent on up to $200 billion of Chinese goods. Now, Trump appears to be following through on that promise — but his numbers aren’t quite as steep.

Instead, the president is expected to announce a 10 percent tariff on up to $200 billion of goods later this week.

The planned 25 percent tariff appears to have been lowered to 10 after importers complained during public hearings about the possible impact that such a high tax could have on their businesses.

Additionally, the administration is likely hoping to reduce the impact that the sanctions will have on American consumers this upcoming holiday season.

That is not to say that tariffs will not reach 25 percent in the future, however. According to insiders, if China does not make an effort to change its economic policies, President Trump is ready to step up his game.

“The president has been clear that he and his administration will continue to take action to address China’s unfair trade practices,” White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters, who declined to talk about the tariffs, said. “We encourage China to address the longstanding concerns raised by the United States.”

Upcoming talks complicate tariff threats
Further details are still in the works, but once the tariffs are announced, they are expected to go into effect within weeks, and possibly even before the end of September, as President Trump is scheduled to meet with Chinese leadership later this month regarding allegations of coercion by Beijing on American companies, who are being forced to hand over valuable technology to Chinese partners.

Do you support President Trump's use of tariffs as an economic tool to gain leverage against China?
Yes
No
Over the last several months, the trade wars between the United States and China have largely been run in a tit-for-tat style, with both countries placing retaliatory tariffs on one another as high as 25 percent on $50 billion in goods, and this trend is likely to continue.

Hearing of the Trump administration’s plans, China has already stated that it will retaliate against $60 billion of U.S. products should Trump move forward with his tariffs.

But as what — if any — impact the new tariffs will have on the upcoming midterm elections? Only time will tell.

Sparks fly on ‘The View’ over Trump’s response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico
September 14, 2018 by Ben Marquis
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/view-trumps-puerto-rico/?utm_source=pna2&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=pna2-1
Image via YouTube
Former Fox News host Abby Huntsman recently joined ABC’s The View as the show’s token right-leaning co-host, and it didn’t take long for sparks to fly between her and the other co-hosts with regard to their incessant habit of blaming everything on President Donald Trump.

At issue on Thursday was a tweet from Trump about what he believes is an artificially-inflated death toll related to Hurricane Maria’s impact on Puerto Rico in 2017. The liberal co-hosts blamed the entirety of the debacle that is Puerto Rico on Trump, while Huntsman rightly noted that it was “unfair” to place all of the blame on him alone.

According to Lifezette, co-host Sunny Hostin said Trump’s tweet about the prospect of Democrats inflating the death toll to make him look bad was nothing short of “grotesque” and should be denounced by any “human” with empathy, and proceeded to say the tweet rendered him “illegitimate as the president of the United States.”

Huntsman responds
Huntsman suggested that Trump’s tweet, like many other claims he has posted over the years, was exaggerated and shouldn’t be taken literally, and decried the fact that a hurricane response and recovery had been made “political” with a back-and-forth blame game for the death and destruction.

“I don’t think President Trump is solely to blame for what happened,” Huntsman said. “Puerto Rico had a number of their own problems before Maria even hit. They were filing for bankruptcy, they had a power grid that was in chaos.”

Hostin, who is originally from Puerto Rico, immediately jumped in to blame the island territory’s horrible infrastructure pre-Maria on the federal government, which she accused of having “raped” the island and used it as a “bank account,” apparently absolving the corrupt local government officials of any wrongdoing in the wretched state of affairs there prior to being further devastated by the storm.

Not the same as Hitler
Hostin further suggested that Trump simply “doesn’t care about Puerto Rico,” a charge which Huntsman said was not “fair.” She also thought it was unfair of Hostin to compare Trump to a ruthless dictator, which Hostin had done the day before.

“I think that is a dangerous play to be, because…that’s comparing him to a Hitler,” Huntsman said. “Someone that gasses their own people, that starves their own people, that orders for thousands of their own people to die.

“You think President Trump was in the Oval Office saying, ‘How can we make it worse for Puerto Ricans? How can we make it so more people die?’ You think that’s what happened in the White House?” Huntsman asked incredulously.

Hostin defended herself by saying she’d never compare anyone to Hitler — an untrue statement, as she has compared Trump to Hitler previously — and then suggested that Trump was too focused on NFL players kneeling for the national anthem to show any concern for the people of Puerto Rico.

Do you agree that it is "unfair" to blame the entirety of Puerto Rico's problems on Trump?
Yes
No
Next
Huntsman attempted to defend the president from the “unfair” attacks and blame aimed at him by her fellow co-hosts on The View, but she was outnumbered and out-shouted.

It remains to be seen how long Huntsman will last on the program before she gets tired of being ganged up on and is replaced by a new right-leaning punching bag for the liberal co-hosts to beat up on every day.

This tragedy happened two years to the day later, when Rodriguez and others gathered at the spot of the murder for a memorial.

According to reports, one of the homeowners in the area came outside and did not approve of the memorial being set.

He started to dismantle the memorial then apparently got into his car, where he was confronted by Rodriguez and another man.

After a short argument, the man reportedly floored it and ran right over Rodriguez, fatally striking her.

‘Prepare To Die:’ Leftists in Complete Frenzy After Learning Trump Will Be Able To Message All Americans
https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/leftists-frenzy-trump-message/?
BY CILLIAN ZEAL 
SEPTEMBER 15, 2018 AT 2:35PM
 Share on Facebook Tweet Email Print
If you’re a cell phone owner — and I’m assuming that applies to most of you in 2018 — you’ve probably received one of those alerts on your phone about an abducted child or a possible weather emergency, or just the usual test message.

Well, now FEMA is about to conduct a national test of part of their alert system in which the president can notify the American people in the event of an emergency, which is something that has to be pretty uncontroversial, right? I mean, there’s absolutely no way that this could possibly be problematic.

Or, as the editor of the hyper-left website Talking Points Memo put it: “Prepare to die.”

Sounds reasonable enough.

So, here’s the occasion that has liberals all in a tizzy: “The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) on September 20, 2018,” the agency announced via a release.

TRENDING: Reporter Called Out for ‘Fake News’ After Florence Live Report Goes Very Wrong

“The WEA portion of the test commences at 2:18 p.m. EDT, and the EAS portion follows at 2:20 p.m. EDT. The test will assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message and determine whether improvements are needed.”

So far, so normal. The part they don’t like? “The EAS is a national public warning system that provides the President with the communications capability to address the nation during a national emergency,” the release reads.

Do you think that this was a massive overreaction?
Yes No 
“The test is made available to EAS participants (i.e., radio and television broadcasters, cable systems, satellite radio and television providers, and wireline video providers) and is scheduled to last approximately one minute. The test message will be similar to regular monthly EAS test messages with which the public is familiar.”

We’re going to warn you that there’s some profanity ahead, because apparently nobody on the left can talk about the president without having to resort to swear words. Reader discretion is advised.

Josh Marshall, who runs Talking Points Memo, probably had the archetypal response:

Oh, see, “godsd******.” Just so we know she’s polytheist or what-have-you. That’s some next-level #Resistance right there.

At least one respondent evinced some sanity:

Oh good grief. This isn't about pushing out political texts. It's for life endangering emergencies.

— HuskyCaucasian (@HuskyCaucasian) September 14, 2018

Exactly. This isn’t tweeting or anything like that. It’s a test message for the event of an emergency. The idea that Trump is going to send out something like “WARNING: I’m the best at being president and you shouldn’t vote for anyone but me” during the 2020 campaign is so beyond absurd at face value that I question why anyone would believe it.

Then again, there are so many things I question why so many on the left would believe in the first place regarding Trump. I suppose I shouldn’t be shocked that they think he’s going to use the new millennium version of the Emergency Broadcast System as his own personal Twitter. Good grief, indeed.

Trump issues disaster relief authorization for areas impacted by Hurricane Florence

As Hurricane Florence approached the eastern seaboard, President Donald Trump issued an emergency order, warning people in the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic states to prepare and authorizing relief efforts ahead of time.

Trump urged those in the storm’s path to be safe as he authorized the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA to prepare disaster relief efforts for “the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population,” a White House statement said Monday.

“Please be prepared, be careful and be SAFE!” Trump said in a tweet Monday evening.

Hurricane wallops Carolinas
Trump’s order came as Florence was still hundreds of miles off the coast. Hurricane experts then warned of a possible build-up to a category 5 storm.

The storm finally made landfall at Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina on Friday morning as a category 1 storm with 90 mph winds. The storm has flooded streets with rain and ocean water and ripped buildings and trees apart.


As of Friday morning, two deaths had been attributed to the storm. A mother and infant were killed when a tree fell on their Wilmington home.

More than 60 people had to be rescued from a collapsing motel in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Meanwhile, flooding left dozens of residents in hard-hit New Bern stranded in homes, in cars, and on rooftops. Police saved about 150 to 200 in New Bern, but some 150 are still waiting to be rescued.

The drama surrounding the recovery efforts in Puerto Rico just got a lot more interesting.

A picture was recently circulated showing millions of bottles of water that were never handed out to Puerto Rico’s citizens after Hurricane Maria last year.
Take a look:

 BREAKING: What may be millions of water bottles. meant for victims of Hurricane Maria, have been sitting on a runway in Ceiba, Puerto Rico, since last year, according to @FEMA, which confirmed the news to me, late tonight, after pictures, posted today on social media, went viral.

What Nobody Will Say
To those who paid attention to the news, it was very clear that some political officials in Puerto Rico were working against President Donald Trump during the recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria.

While FEMA was doing everything it could to help, people like Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz were too busy fighting Trump to help the people that needed it most.

That picture of the water is yet another example of how bad local officials were failing their citizens.

Commerce First
The reason behind local officials wasting the water was apparently economic.

Puerto Rico is a tourist destination. As such, local officials wanted businesses to open and thrive to start to rebuild the economy — but at what cost?

FEMA officials stated they had disbursed as much water as they could to every local agency that could store it.

But when businesses started to open, the “excess” water was no longer being accepted because local officials did not want to hurt the local economy any more than the storm had already done.

Storage Issues
The storage fees for the water were also starting to eat up relief money in huge chunks.

The estimated costs for storing the water were $300,000 per day.

To save money, the water was moved to a local airstrip for storage and covered in case it was needed again.

Do you think Puerto Rico officials are more to blame for the deaths after Hurricane Maria than Trump?
Yes
No
This account seems to back up Trump’s October 2017 claim that the military was actually being used to distribute relief supplies because local officials were either unable or unwilling to do it.

Clearly, there was a breakdown locally.

Local officials need to be willing to work with FEMA for the good of their citizens. No exceptions.

Trump calls out ‘radical Islamist terrorists’ for tragedies of Sept. 11, 2001
September 12, 2018 by Ben Marquis
Trump calls out ‘radical Islamist terrorists’ for tragedies of Sept. 11, 2001
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/trump-radical-islamist-terrorists/?utm_source=pna2&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=pna2-1
One of the many things about former President Barack Obama that so many Americans found absolutely appalling was his seeming inability to utter the words “radical,” “Islamist,” and “terrorists” in the same sentence.

But President Donald Trump is not beholden to liberal political correctness, however, as was made clear when he specifically cited “radical Islamist terrorists” on Monday as being responsible for the horrific attacks on America in 2001.

Presidential Proclamation
Trump issued a Presidential Proclamation on Monday, Sept. 10, which declared Sept. 11 to be “Patriot Day” in honor of the lives lost and bravery exhibited on that fateful day 17 years ago.

“On Patriot Day, we honor the memories of the nearly 3,000 precious lives we lost on September 11, 2001, and of every hero who has given their life since that day to protect our safety and our freedom,” Trump wrote.

“Although that fateful Tuesday 17 years ago began like any other, it erupted into horror and anguish when radical Islamist terrorists carried out an unprecedented attack on our homeland,” he continued, using the phrase his predecessor so studiously, and at times absurdly, avoided at all costs.

“In New York, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, the enemies of liberty took aim on America, but their evil acts could not crush our spirit, overcome our will, or loosen our commitment to freedom,” Trump added.

Day of honor
Trump’s proclamation also took note of the incredible bravery and ultimate sacrifice displayed by some during and in the aftermath of the terrible atrocity, whether those heroes were first responders rushing into danger to save the lives of others or ordinary citizens who acted extraordinarily in the extreme circumstance to do the same, not to mention all those who risked their health later during the extensive clean-up and recovery efforts.

“The noble sacrifices of these true patriots are forged into the great history of America,” the president wrote.

Referencing a congressional joint resolution issued in December 2001, Trump went on to declare Sept. 11 of each year going forward as “Patriot Day” in honor of all of those who made sacrifices.

As such, the American flag at the White House and “all departments, agencies, and instrumentalities of the United States” would be flown at half-staff for the day, and Trump encouraged the governors of all U.S. states and territories to follow suit in the honorary observance.

Are you glad that President Trump is unafraid to use the accurate phrase "radical Islamist terrorists"?
Yes
No
Obama was inexplicably hard-pressed to call out “radical Islamist terrorism” as the very real and very dangerous threat to America and the West, despite great consternation from Americans who could plainly see the threat that has cost America thousands of lives over the years.

But Trump has no such qualms about calling things as he sees them. He vowed in 2016 to call “radical Islamist terrorists” exactly what they are, and that is yet another promise he has kept since taking office.

Parkland Dad Swoops in After MSNBC Reporter Takes 9/11 Shot at Trump
By Chris Agee 
September 13, 2018 at 8:07am
 https://www.westernjournal.com/parkland-dad-swoops-msnbc-reporter-takes-9-11-shot-trump/?
President Donald Trump’s public statements and actions have led some critics to opine that he is incapable of showing the compassion Americans expect from a commander in chief.
For the father of one student killed in a mass school shooting earlier this year, however, Trump’s behavior behind closed doors revealed a different side of his personality.
Andrew Pollack spoke out in defense of the president following widespread denouncement of the gesture Trump used when arriving in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, for the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The father, whose daughter, Meadow, was killed in the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stonheman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, told the The Daily Caller that media commentary about Trump’s inability to console grieving citizens is “bogus.”
One such comment came from MSNBC’s Geoff Bennett, who said Trump seems incapable of expressing appropriate emotion.

“Clearly, the president was responding to people who were happy to see him,” the reporter said. “He got a lot of applause lines here today.”
Suggesting self-promotion was the primary motivation for the president, Bennett said it is “true … that he’s not yet really displayed a capacity for the pastoral elements of the presidency.”
Though Pollack did not directly address the president’s public displays that have evoked harsh rebukes from various political commentators, he said Trump has displayed sincerity during their private meetings.
“I’ve met him three times privately,” he told The Daily Caller. “He always makes a point to meet myself and family and remembers my daughter, Meadow.”
Claiming the president “can be empathetic and compassionate,” Pollack said that the “media just doesn’t show that side of his personality.”
The story caught the attention of Trump supporters on social media.

Nancy Pelosi has no intention of stepping aside: ‘As long as Trump’s here, I’m here’
September 11, 2018
Nancy Pelosi has no intention of stepping aside: ‘As long as Trump’s here, I’m here’
https://www.conservativeinstitute.org/conservative-news/pelosi-remain-trump-office.htm?
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi plans to stick around for as long as President Donald Trump is in office.

The Democrat leader told CNN in a Monday night interview that “as long as Trump’s here, I’m here,” even as she admitted that it’s time for some “new blood” in the party.

Pelosi: I won’t leave till Trump does
Pelosi sat down with CNN’s Christian Amanpour to talk about the midterms, the Democratic party, and her own political future. Amanpour asked Pelosi about the challenges to her leadership from a younger generation of Democrats who say it’s time for a change.

“I do agree that it’s time for new blood and we should move on, and if Hillary Clinton had won and the Affordable Care Act was protected — I feel very proprietary about that — I was happy to go my way,” she said.

Pelosi said that since Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election, it was important for her to stay where she is to make sure women are at the table. She also mentioned the vulnerability of the Affordable Care Act under the Trump administration.

“They give me the honor of serving and it’s up to them to choose who comes next. But to have no woman at the table and to have the Affordable Care Act at risk, I said, ‘As long as [Trump’s] here, I’m here,’” she said.


“45,” she clarified, referring to Trump by number rather than by name.

Impeachment if “facts are there”
Pelosi said that it’s “up to the caucus to decide” but that she’s confident that she “will be” Speaker of the House. But more than 50 Democrats running in the midterms, including nine incumbents, have said they will not back her while dozens more have evaded the question.

Amanpour broached a topic that highlighted a split between Pelosi and the younger, more progressive wing of the party advocating new leadership: impeachment. While the party’s radicals have called for impeachment vocally and often, Pelosi has mostly demurred.

Pelosi told Amanpour that seeking impeachment is “divisive” but proceedings could be on the table if the “facts are there.”
“Well, I don’t think that impeachment should be engaged in for political reason but I don’t think it should be avoided for a political reason. In other words, if the facts are there, then it takes us to a place. But that is not our priority. Our priority, again, unifying.”

For impeachment to become more than a progressive fantasy, Democrats must take back the House. Pelosi said her party would win handily if the midterms were held today, with women leading the way.
Do you suspect Nancy Pelosi will hold on to whatever power she can for as long as she can?
Yes
No
“If the election were held today, we would win overwhelmingly and women would lead the way,” she said. “We have so many excellent women candidates from women across the country. Women marched and then they ran, and now they’re running and now they’re going to be members of Congress.”

TRUMP REMEMBERS FLIGHT 93 PASSENGERS WHO FOUGHT BACK

President Donald Trump remembered the victims of Sept. 11 in a 17th anniversary speech at the crash site of hijacked flight United 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Play Video
FOX NEWS 
“Flight 93 was hijacked by evil men bent on terror and conquest. Passengers and crew members began using their phones to call home,” Trump said.

“In the last 20 minutes, many placed their final calls home, whispering those eternal words, I love you,” he continued. “Some said the Lord’s prayer, and then they bravely charged the cockpit. They attacked the enemy, they fought until the very end, and they stopped the forces of terror and defeated this wicked, horrible, evil plan.”

The president said the crash site represents a monument to “American defiance” in the spirit of the Flight 93 passengers who fought back against the 9/11 hijackers and forced the plane down before it could strike Washington, D.C.

Trump signed a proclamation commemorating 9/11 designating Tuesday as “Patriots Day,” saying, “today, we honor the memories of the souls we lost on September 11, 2001, and pay tribute to all of the patriots who have sacrificed their lives in defense of freedom. We pray for the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen currently serving our Nation in harm’s way.”

Democratic Socialist Makes It Behind Trump at Rally, Secret Service Intervenes
BY KARA PENDLETON 
SEPTEMBER 9, 2018 AT 4:06PM
 https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/democratic-socialist-trump-rally/?
Plaid Shirt Guy. If you don’t know who he is, he first grabbed national attention while standing behind President Donald Trump during his Billings, Montana rally appearance.
The young man was attention-grabbing because the plaid shirt he was wearing stood out so much from everyone else’s apparel. But that is not the only reason why “#plaidshirtguy” is getting so much attention.
During Trump’s speech, the plaid shirt guy continually made faces at the cameras and even mouthed words, seemingly in response to what Trump was saying. And at one point, he was busy doing something that turned out to be him putting on a pin.

Social media went crazy with his actions and the fact he was quickly replaced. What they didn’t know is that the Secret Service then met with him.
Some did, however, figure out that the pin he put on for the cameras was for the Democratic Socialist party.

During an interview with CNN, Linfesty presented another possible cause for his removal. He said it could have been due to him not being enthusiastic the way they’d been asked to be prior to being placed behind the president.

Yes No

However, the Billings Gazette wrote that one of their reporters at the event “saw staffers in the press pen looking at a photo in which Linfesty was circled.” Later, after he put on his pin, “The same group of staffers reviewed a photo of the emblem and searched online for more information. A short while later, Linfesty was removed.”
Linfesty told CNN that he wasn’t there to protest and that the exaggerated facial expressions he made as Trump spoke were just his honest reactions.
“I just wanted to go, just see the President and hear what he had to say. I mean, I’m not going to pass up the opportunity to see the President of the United States.”
“When I got back there, I knew that I was going to be genuine. I was going to give my actual reaction to the things he said. So whenever I disagree with him, you could tell that I disagreed. But whenever I agreed with him, you know, I clapped.”
But some on Twitter disagreed with his claim of not being there to protest, noting his other actions — along with some choice language.

For example, he wasn’t initially wearing the Democratic Socialist rose. He put it on after he was already in place behind the president. When he is later approached by the woman who ultimately asks him to leave, it may appear that he is attempting to cover up the pin.

He told the Billings Gazette about other things he did, too. “Linfesty said he also had a picture taken by the Trump campaign before the rally while he was wearing the DSA rose and posing with the president. He has not seen the picture since, he said Friday.”
“As a joke, he also gave a copy of the ‘Communist Manifesto’ wrapped with an ‘Art of the Deal’ cover to Secret Service in hopes of having the president sign it. Agents did not grant his request, and the president didn’t sign the book, he said.”
According to The Washington Post, he asked to be behind the president and his request was granted. “Before I got the picture and the handshake with Donald Trump, I asked him if me and my friends could sit behind him.”
“I had no idea I was going to be on Trump’s shoulder. I didn’t know it was going to be so zoomed in right on me and my friends. I didn’t know it was going to be like that all.”
He told the Billings Gazette that he is not a communist and that the Secret Service “looked at his ID and then after about 10 minutes told him he could leave.” They “treated (him) fine,” but did tell him “not to come back.”
Linfesty has now become a cult hero to the left. They have even turned him into a meme for social media protests against Trump. One example:

Trump threatens use of military to build wall at Mexican border

Trump threatens use of military to build wall at Mexican border
Image via Nicole S Glass / Shutterstock.com
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/trump-threatens-use-military/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pna
While funding for President Donald Trump’s border wall continues to be blocked in Congress, it seems the president himself has found a way around their games.

Trump is reportedly threatening to use the U.S. military to build the wall if Congress won’t fund it.

Hole Card
Like any good poker player, Trump has been sitting on a loaded hand without letting his opponents know about it until the final bet.

Democrats are refusing to budge on the border wall.

They know if they do, they are feeding right into Trump’s hand.

There is no way Democrats can allow this president and the GOP to go on the campaign trail claiming victory against illegal immigration.

With the clock ticking, Trump is finally ready to use the tools at his disposal to accomplish his end game.

He recently revealed he is ready to put our military to work building the wall if Congress continues to hold funding hostage.

They Can’t Stop Him
While Democrats can whine all they want, there really isn’t all that much they can do if Trump decides to play this card.

He would be well within his powers as president to put the Army Corps of Engineers to work building a wall.

President Trump is adamant that he would prefer not to circumvent Congress, but he will if necessary.

When Defense Department officials were asked about it, they sounded rather excited about the possible task.

One official said “[the Army Corps of Engineers] build levees that hold back massive walls of water, they can build one to hold back drugs and human traffickers.”

It would probably cost far less to build the wall with our military than it would to contract the job out to the private sector anyway.

Should Trump Use the Military to Build the Wall?
Yes
No
One thing is for certain though: with midterm elections looming and the Trump administration needing something positive in the headlines, it is only a matter of time before he turns that card over and pushes all in.

Are you tired of winning yet? Its a common refrain seen on social media every time President Donald Trump keeps a campaign promise. But critics have plagued him with skepticism about being able to keep one of his biggest promises: building the southern border wall, and at Mexico’s expense.

But now it seems said critics may have to eat crow. According to conservative radio talk show host Wayne Allyn Root, Trump just kept that very promise and America is winning, yet again.
“That was all before President Trump announced a United States-Mexico trade agreement. Because Trump talked tough and never gave in, US workers will benefit,” he wrote. “US carmakers will benefit. US manufacturers will benefit. US taxpayers will benefit. Trump did it. He won. We all won.”
“Trump announced he will terminate NAFTA,” he continued. “While we don’t know all the details yet, I guarantee this new trade deal will save us tens of billions, perhaps hundreds of billions of dollars over the next decade.”

“Since the wall with Mexico costs about $25 billion, Trump just forced Mexico (whether they know it, or not) to pay for the wall. Once again, Trump accomplished what establishment politicians of both parties said could never be done.”
Will this trade deal result in Mexico paying for the wall?
Yes No

According to The Hill, during a “meeting with FIFA and U.S. Soccer officials about the 2026 men’s World Cup,” Trump was asked about about the border wall. Trump’s response was that “the wall will be paid for very easily by Mexico. It will ultimately be paid for by Mexico.”
Following this statement, the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Affairs Luis Videgaray Caso took to Twitter to express, again, that Mexico will not pay for the wall.

 We just reached a trade understanding with the US, and the outlook for the relationship between our two countries is very positive. We will NEVER pay for a wall, however. That has been absolutely clear from the very beginning.

This, however, does not take into consideration the explanation Root outlined for how they actually will, knowingly or not, pay for the wall, via the trade deal.
The establishment media has been rife headlines proclaiming that, “No, Mexico won’t pay for the wall, no matter what Trump says” rhetoric.
Even on social media, his critics are disputing his claim.
But, as with Caso, none have looked at the simple math of the deal the way Root did.
Interestingly, on Twitter, Trump has not yet been taking a victory lap regarding the wall. He’s been hit hard for months about the wall promise but his tweets focused on other benefits of the trade deal with Mexico.

Root pointed out that Trump is taking a page from Rush Limbaugh’s book with a “Don’t doubt me” standard.
He wrote: “(W)ith Donald J. Trump there are no such words as ‘never’ or ‘impossible.’ Trump has chutzpah. Trump has cajones. Trump aims for the moon. Trump is combative and aggressive. Trump is driven to do what others say cannot be done. Trump is an eternal optimist. He accepts nothing less #WINNING.”
It is this, perhaps, that plays a big role in Trump’s popularity with his supporters and one-time doubters, alike. Not only has he been keeping his promises, but he tirelessly fights the good fight for America, regardless of what his critics say.

Donald Trump: Abuse Scandal ‘Devastating for the Catholic Church’

President Donald Trump did not criticize Pope Francis for his response to the sexual abuse scandals recently uncovered in the Catholic Church.
“To me, it’s a very sad story. The Pope is handling it, I guess, the best anyone can handle it,” Trump said in an interview with the Daily Caller. “How is he going to handle it?”

Trump said he was “sad” about the scandal which has stretched back about 70 years.

“I think it’s having a really negative impact on the Catholic Church,” he said. “I think it’s very sad, to me it’s one of the sadder stories ’cause I respect so much the Catholic Church.”

He also expressed surprise about the accusations of abuse against Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who resigned after allegations of sexual abuse of boys was made public.

“I’m surprised at McCarrick,” he said. “Everyone knew him and so incredible to see these things. It’s devastating for the Catholic Church.”

Elizabeth Warren wants to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from power
September 7, 2018 by Jerry McCormick
Elizabeth Warren wants to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from power
https://www.patriotnewsalerts.com/warren-wants-25th-amendment/?utm_medium=ci&utm_source=push&utm_campaign=pna
The fallout from the scathing New York Times op-ed is starting.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a potential 2020 presidential candidate, is demanding the 25th Amendment be invoked to remove President Donald Trump from office.

Damning Letter
This is not the first time Democrats have tried to suggest the 25th Amendment needs to be invoked.

Up to this point, though, it was treated as nothing more than political fodder.

Now, with that op-ed, the Democrats can actually make a case.

The op-ed paints a picture of a president that cannot be trusted.

It gives the impression Trump is a maniac that is simply out of control and needs to be managed.

The most damning part of the letter is the suggestion that a “safe state” inside the White House is filtering the information Trump receives for fear he may act impulsively.

Opportunity Strikes
Warren, ever the opportunist, is using that op-ed to fire off attack after attack against Trump.

Many believe these attacks are merely groundwork for a 2020 presidential run.

She left little room for debate about where she stands, stating: “If senior administration officials think the President of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment.”

“The Constitution provides for a procedure whenever the vice president and senior officials think the president can’t do his job,” Warren added. “It does not provide that senior officials go around the president – take documents off his desk, write anonymous op-eds … Every one of these officials have sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States. It’s time for them to do their job.”

While we still do not know who wrote the op-ed, we do know that person may have singlehandedly ruined any chance Trump has of winning a second term.

Trump’s most ardent supporters will not waiver, but conservatives who are already on the fence are starting to wonder if voting for Trump in the next election is wise.

Sadly, the media is actually celebrating the op-ed and treating it as a victory rather than the national security problem it presents.

Trump may not be what most would consider a traditional politician, but his voters knew exactly what they were getting when they cast their votes.

Do You Think Warren Can Beat Trump in a Presidential Election?
Yes
No
Next
Thus far, Trump has not disappointed them in what he has delivered to the people of his country.

Even sadder is the fact he is being judged for his personality rather than what he has accomplished.

It’s too bad the same can’t be said about Sen. Warren.

 Does the so-called “Senior Administration Official” really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source? If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!

In keeping the author anonymous, the Times broke with a long-standing precedent — because they thought it “deserved an airing.”

The Op-Ed
Americans on both the left and right are in an uproar over the revelations in the op-ed.

While the “gutless” “coward”, as Press Secretary Sarah Sanders described the author, refused to be named, he or she admitted that “like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of [Trump’s] agenda.”

According to the piece, these are policies this individual disagrees with.

That is not his or her decision, though.

President Trump was elected to office by the people of this country to make good on his campaign promises.

That is what he is trying to do, but now we know why certain policies have been failing.

A Coup
The President himself hinted at treason, but this sounds more like a coup in the White House.

The individual that penned the article stated they are not alone in this effort.

There are apparently several individuals involved.

It is bad enough one person is acting in such a manner but multiple people represent a conspiracy to take over our government.

Trump is 100 percent right in this case. The individual in question must be identified ASAP.

Do You Think There is a White House Coup Taking Place?
Yes
No
We the People did not elect the deep state to represent us … we elected Donald Trump.
If this coward will not come forward, Trump must do whatever is necessary to have this person identified and if need be, put them on trial for treason to the United States of America.



NYT Credibility Shot: Senior Official Turned Out To Be Intern in Past Hit Piece
BY BEN MARQUIS 
SEPTEMBER 6, 2018 AT 3:05PM
https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/nyt-credibility-shot-senior-official-turned-intern-past-hit-piece/?utm_source=push&utm_medium=conservativetribune&utm_content=2018-09-07&utm_campaign=manualpost
The New York Times published an opinionated hit piece against President Donald Trump on Wednesday, but what else is new?

The anonymously written op-ed article, titled “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” was purportedly penned by a “senior official” in Trump’s administration. It asserted that a collection of other “senior officials” are part of a broader, right-leaning “resistance” inside the administration that is “thwarting” the president’s “misguided impulses” to save the country from Trump’s petty recklessness.

This, even as the supposed “senior official” author admitted that many of Trump’s policies “have already made America safer and more prosperous,” though the author insisted that was the case in spite of, and not because of, Trump himself.

Unsurprisingly, the op-ed sparked plenty of controversy and outrage on all sides and provoked conspiratorial conversations about exactly who this anonymous “senior official” is.

Using clues such as linguistic mannerisms and specific words contained within the article, guesses have ranged from Vice President Mike Pence to a number of different cabinet-level officials to other truly “senior” officials in the top tier of the administration’s several agencies and departments.

TRENDING: Mattis Doesn’t Take Kindly to Woodward Lies, Blasts with Marine-Grade Response

But if Trump’s White House has engaged in a “witch hunt” of its own to identify the anonymous author of The Times’ hit piece, an op-ed in Townhall suggested the hunters avert their gaze from the cabinet and top tier of the administration and search a little bit lower on the totem pole to find the potentially seditious insider.

That Townhall piece noted that The Times has a history of inflating and over-exaggerating the stature or seniority of its anonymous sources from within the government, and pointed to a rather glaring example of the practice that occurred in 2011.

At that time, the explosive growth in natural gas energy production was gaining steam in large part because of technological progress in a new method of drilling known as hydraulic fracturing. Better known as “fracking,” it was widely opposed by the left, to include the Obama administration and its liberal mouthpieces at The Times.

A writer for The Times published a series of anti-fracking articles in the paper, one of which anonymously cited emails from three “senior” insiders — an energy industry analyst, a federal analyst and a senior administration official — who were all opposed to the shale energy boom and the industry’s methods used to extract it.

Do you suspect the "senior" official in this hit piece from The Times is actually not a top tier administration member?
Yes No 
Completing this poll entitles you to Conservative Tribune news updates free of charge. You may opt out at anytime. You also agree to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.
A Senate investigation into the matter determined that the emails had all originated in the federal government’s Energy Information Agency, and even better than that, all the emails from the three “different” sources had actually come from just one person employed by the EIA.

On top of that, the one EIA employee was nowhere close to truly being a “senior” official of any sort. At the time he wrote the first email quoted by The Times, he was actually an intern with the EIA. He had been promoted one rung on the ladder to be an entry-level analyst when he wrote the others.

A deeper dive into that particular scandal was well documented in a 2011 article published by Energy In Depth, including a look at how harshly The Times’ own ombudsman judged the newspaper’s product.

There’s no way of knowing who The Times’ source is in this case, but history suggests the possibility that The Times has similarly exaggerated or inflated the seniority of this anti-Trump “senior official” who is part of a resistance movement inside Trump’s own administration.

The Times editors — who stated in an introduction to the op-ed that they know who the author is — have refused to reveal that individual’s identity, ostensibly to protect the writer from potential blowback or career-ending punishment.

RELATED: Melania Weighs In on NYT Op-Ed with Brilliant Lesson on America’s History

Perhaps just as likely is that they are protecting that person’s identity because it will be quite embarrassing for them if it is revealed that the “senior” official is in actuality some Trump-hating mid-level bureaucrat or low-level intern.

That’s if the op-ed was even written by a member of the administration at all, and wasn’t just some piece of fiction cooked up by The Times itself to smear Trump. (Hard as that might be to believe, it can’t be completely ruled out, given how fake some of the media’s “fake news” stories have been proven to be.)

Keep this in mind the next time somebody tries to assert how credible The New York Times is, when in reality it’s staffed by narrative-driven, leftist hacks who care more about pushing an agenda than actually reporting the news.

Obama Slams Trump: How Hard Can It Be to Say 'Nazis Are Bad'?
Former president criticizes successor's response to violence at white nationalist rally, saying Americans are 'supposed to stand up to discrimination'

Sweden’s 'moderate' far right has a Nazi problem
Record breaking number of neo-Nazis and white nationalists running for office in the U.S.

Former President Barack Obama issued a scorching critique of his successor Friday, blasting President Donald Trump’s response to far-right violence, his pattern of pressuring the Justice Department, his policies and reminding voters that the economic recovery — one of Trump’s favorite talking points — began on his watch.
Obama criticized Trump’s response to the violence last year at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that resulted in the death of one person.

“We’re supposed to stand up to discrimination,” Obama said. “And we’re sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers. How hard can that be, saying that Nazis are bad?”

Obama’s speech at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was delivered less than two months before midterm elections that could determine the course of Trump’s presidency. The remarks amounted to a stinging indictment of political life in the Trump era.

>> Meet the bigots running in the U.S. midterms (and one of them is Jewish) ■ Why 'Unite the Right' rally was a pathetic flop – and why that shouldn't matter | Analysis

“It did not start with Donald Trump,” Obama said. “He is a symptom, not the cause. He’s just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years.”

Noting the history of former presidents avoiding the rough and tumble of politics, Obama acknowledged his sharp critique of Trump was something of a departure from tradition. But he said the political moment required a pushback and called for better discourse.

“Appealing to tribe, appealing to fear, pitting one group against another, telling people that order and security will be restored if it weren’t for those who don’t look like us or don’t sound like us or don’t pray like we do — that’s an old playbook,” he said. “It’s as old as time. And in a healthy democracy, it doesn’t work. Our antibodies kick in and people of good will from across the political spectrum call out the bigots and the fear-mongers and work to compromise and get things done and promote the better angels of our nation.”

But, Obama added, when there is a vacuum in democracy, “other voices fill the void. A politics of fear and resentment and retrenchment takes hold.”

Obama called Trump “the symptom, not the cause” of division and polarization in the U.S.

Trump, meanwhile, claims he fell asleep watching Obama’s speech. “I’m sorry, I watched it, but I fell asleep,” Trump said at a campaign appearance in Fargo, North Dakota. “I found he’s very good for sleeping.”

Trump said Obama was trying to take credit for this “incredible thing that’s happening to our country.”

Even as he has largely remained out of the spotlight, Obama made clear he’s paid close attention to the steady stream of headlines chronicling the Trump administration and said the news is a reminder of what’s at stake in the November midterm elections.

“Just a glance at recent headlines should tell you this moment really is different,” Obama said. “The stakes really are higher. The consequences of any of us sitting on the sidelines are more dire.” He later added: “This is not normal.”

He was especially stern in his condemnation of Trump’s pattern of pressuring law enforcement officials, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The president has repeatedly called on Sessions to fire special counsel Robert Mueller and earlier this week blamed the Justice Department for indicting two incumbent Republican members of Congress, arguing the moves could jeopardize their seats.

“It should not be a partisan issue to say that we do not pressure the attorney general or the FBI to use the criminal justice system as a cudgel to punish our political opponents,” Obama said. “Or to explicitly call on the attorney general to protect members of our own party from prosecution because an election happens to be coming up. I’m not making that up. that’s not hypothetical.
 
As Obama spoke, Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One that he believed Sessions should investigate the identity of the author of an anonymous New York Times opinion piece that was sharply critical of his leadership, saying the essay a “national security issue.”

Obama, reacting to the op-ed account, said “that’s not how our democracy is supposed to work.”

“The claim that everything will turn out OK because there are people inside the White House who secretly aren’t following the president’s orders, that is not a check,” Obama said. “I’m being serious here. That’s not how our democracy is supposed to work. These people aren’t elected. They’re not accountable.”

Obama also jabbed Trump on the issue the current president frequently heralds as one of his greatest achievements: The strong economy. Obama reminded the audience that the economic recovery began during his administration and defended his handling of the 2008 economic collapse.

“When you hear how great the economy’s doing right now, let’s just remember when this recovery started,” he said.

The speech was a preview of the argument that Obama is likely to make throughout the fall. On Saturday, the former president will stump for House Democratic candidates from California at an event in Orange County, a conservative-leaning part of California where Republicans are at risk of losing several congressional seats.

Next week, Obama plans to campaign in Ohio for Richard Cordray, the Democratic nominee for governor, and Ohio Democrats.

Obama’s campaign activity will continue through October and will include fundraising appearances, according to an Obama adviser. The adviser was not authorized to discuss Obama’s thinking publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity. While the former president will be visible throughout the general election, the adviser said that Obama will not be a daily presence on the campaign trail.

Republicans said voters won’t find Obama’s argument appealing.

“In 2016, voters rejected President Obama’s policies and his dismissiveness towards half the country,” Republican National Committee spokesman Michael Ahrens said in response to the Friday speech. “Doubling down on that strategy won’t work in 2018 either.”
Meanwhile, Michelle Obama is also stepping up her political involvement ahead of the November midterm election. She will headline voter registration rallies in Las Vegas and Miami later in September as part of a week of action by When We All Vote, the new nonpartisan organization that she co-chairs.

Psychologist: Trump May Be the Sanest Person in White House Ever
BY KARA PENDLETON 
SEPTEMBER 6, 2018 AT 11:49AM
 https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/psychologist-trump-sanest-person/?
From bumbling idiot to stable genius, opinions vary wildly regarding President Donald Trump. But now a psychologist who knows him has weighed in with her opinion — and it is likely to send the left into a total meltdown.
Show host Dr. Gina Loudon, PhD has written a new book titled, “Mad Politics,” in which she posits, “what if Trump isn’t the crazy man that the media pretends he is? What if he’s actually the cure for a country who’s been going mad for years?”
During an appearance on “Hannity,” she elaborated further:

In one tweet, Loudon hinted at some of the science behind her conclusion regarding Trump’s sanity. She asked, “Ever wonder what @realDonaldTrump’s family of origin and birth order have to do with his leadership style, success, and personality?
On the Tom Shillue Show, Loudon talked about her background with science and research, along with her interactions with Trump and his family both inside and outside the White House.
She explained that all of that adds to a more realistic look of Trump than rumor and innuendo do.

Taking on the recent hullabaloo about investigative journalist Bob Woodard’s book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” Loudon goes for the kill in explaining why her book is better. Based on what has been coming out about his book, there may be an argument to be made.
Donald J. Trump
✔️
@realDonaldTrump
 The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly. Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public. Likewise other stories and quotes. Woodward is a Dem operative? Notice timing?

According to Bloomberg, in Woodward’s book, Kelly is attributed with calling Trump an “idiot.” Dowd allegedly called Trump a “liar” and Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, is alleged to have “heard Trump propose assassinating Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.” Haley also denies the book’s claims.

In the meantime, there have seemingly been no claims of false attributions in Loudon’s book. There has only been outrage over her statement that Trump may be sane, much less the “sanest person in the White House.” Neither fits the narrative being pushed by Trump’s detractors, who are quick to claim incompetence and insanity as justifications for impeachment.

In the end, it is the book buyers — and ultimately the American voters — who will decide what to believe about the president. For now, his endorsement continues to carry great weight with voters and his popularity continues to hold strong.

At the beginning of 2018 — with his first tweet of the New Year, actually — President Donald Trump placed Pakistan on notice that America’s rather generous financial aid to the central Asian nation would be suspended in light of Pakistan’s “lies and deceit” with regard to helping us in the War on Terror.

It appears Pakistan didn’t quite get the message, as it was just announced that $300 million in military aid to Pakistan had been canceled and reprogrammed to be spent on “other urgent priorities” in the region.

According to Reuters, the Pentagon cited Pakistan’s failure to decisively act against suspected Islamic extremists within their own borders.

Not pulling their weight in the War on Terror
Pakistan has long been accused of granting safe harbor from U.S. and coalition forces to Islamic terrorists and brutal Taliban militants from Afghanistan.

The $300 million was part of a larger aid program known as Coalition Support Funds, and Pakistan could have still received those funds this year if they had made a noticeable effort in helping to crack down on radical Islamic terrorists. But they made no distinguishable moves against the insurgents, and have now lost access to those funds.

The $300 million that was just cut was in addition to another $500 million in aid to Pakistan that had been canceled earlier in the year by Congress for similar reasons, totaling a full $800 million in scheduled aid to Pakistan that has been diverted to other, more-deserving recipients in the region.

The announced cut in aid came just days prior to a scheduled trip to Pakistan’s capital of Islamabad by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford. The aid in exchange for fighting radical militants will most certainly be a “primary part of the discussion.”

All about timing
This isn’t the first time that aid to Pakistan has been suspended or even canceled, and unless the Pakistani government makes some substantial changes, it likely won’t be the last.

However, this particular aid cut has come at a time when Pakistan is struggling financially with a weak currency and overwhelming debt that has them on the verge of approaching the International Monetary Fund — which is dominated by the U.S. — with hat in hand to secure a bailout for their debts.

That leaves them in a rather vulnerable position in that they really have no other choice but to cooperate with the U.S. in combating Islamic terrorism — or continue to be financially squeezed to the point of economic failure.

Do you support cutting off aid to Pakistan until they actually support efforts to fight terrorism?
Yes
No
The U.S. has reportedly granted Pakistan more than $33 billion in financial assistance since 2002 — $14 billion of which came from the CSF program — and while they have helped the War on Terror in some respects, their cooperation has been severely lacking in other areas.

This aid cut should serve as a warning to Pakistan that it is time for them to get fully on board in fighting against terrorism or risk being cut out of the very generous financial assistance America is more than willing to share with our allies who actually act like allies.

Trump Fires Back With His Own Incredible Response After McCain Funeral Turns Political

John McCain’s actual election rivals may have been George W. Bush back in 2000 and Barack Obama in 2008, but you’d be forgiven for wondering if they were all on the same team after the late senator’s funeral on Saturday.

“The same team” is even how former President Obama described himself and McCain as he addressed the gathered crowd at the senator’s funeral.

The Arizona lawmaker may have been gone, but the figures he approved to speak at the service definitely seemed to be on the same page when it came to using the memorial service as a platform to join forces against the sitting president of the United States.

Nobody mentioned Donald Trump by name, but as Joseph Curl pointed out at The Daily Wire, it was clear that three of the main speakers — Meghan McCain, Barack Obama, and George W. Bush — were of one mind when it came to backhanding the current president.

“We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness — the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who lived lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served,” McCain’s adult daughter Meghan chastised from the podium.

It was a cheap shot directed, without a doubt, at the billionaire Trump.

“The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great,” Meghan McCain continued, obviously hammering at Trump’s famous slogan of “Make America Great Again.”

Remember, this was supposed to be a funeral.

Obama joined in when his time came.

Do you think the "team" that slammed Trump at the funeral actually proved his point about the establishment?

“So much of our politics, our public life, our public discourse can seem small and mean and petty, trafficking in bombast and insult and phony controversies and manufactured outrage,” he declared pompously.

“It’s a politics that pretends to be brave and tough but in fact is born in fear. John called on us to be bigger than that. He called on us to be better than that,” stated the former president who beat the deceased in 2008 aided in large part by a media that slandered McCain constantly.

Then George W. Bush, a man who reportedly refused to vote for Trump against Hillary Clinton, took the stage.

“John was above all a man with a code,” Bush stated.

“He led by a set of public virtues that brought strength and purpose to his life and to his country. He was courageous, with a courage that frightened his captors and inspired his countrymen,” Bush said.

“He was honorable, always recognizing that his opponents were still patriots and human beings,” Bush continued, without clarifying what the definition of a patriot was or if every opponent met the criteria.

“He loved freedom with the passion of a man who knew its absence. He respected the dignity inherent in every life, a dignity that does not stop at borders,” Bush continued, likely taking a swipe at Trump’s push for border security.

One Republican president jabbing at another for daring to enforce the nation’s borders, at a funeral. Welcome to 2018.

In response, Trump could have gone on a rant. He could have pushed back against the almost certain efforts to chide him by establishment politicians who have had power for decades — basically, the very people he was elected to counter.

Instead, Trump posted just four words on Twitter on the evening of McCain’s funeral.

It wasn’t a lot. It didn’t have to be.

For Trump opponents, nothing the president said would have mattered.

For Trump supporters, those four words said it all.

While Media Bashes Trump over McCain Funeral, President Lends Air Force Two To Bring Body to DC

President Donald Trump kept to the background last week during the ceremonies honoring the late Sen. John McCain, but he ensured that McCain’s body was treated with respect.

Trump signed off on allowing the Arizona Republican to make his final trip to Washington on a Boeing C-32A, which would be officially called “Air Force Two” in its usual role of ferrying the vice president. The plane is also used at times by the first lady.

In reporting on the arrival of McCain’s body, WUSA in Washington described “the familiar state blue and white aircraft Thursday, a symbol of American power serving presidents, vice presidents and first ladies for 20 years.”

In a statement issued Aug. 27, Trump said he had acted in response to the late senators’ survivors.

“At the request of the McCain family, I have also authorized military transportation of Senator McCain’s remains from Arizona to Washington, D.C., military pallbearers and band support, and a horse and caisson transport during the service at the United States Naval Academy,” Trump said in the statement, as distributed by The Associated Press.
