PUTIN’S “PUPPET” DONALD TRUMP DEALS HIM A SERIES OF DAMAGING BLOWS AS RUSSIA IS MADE SMALLER AGAIN

 
 
 
 
 
                          
 
 
 
           
                       
 Would Vladimir Putin's "puppet" or "evil twin" or "ticking time bomb" have kept economically damaging sanctions in place on Russia warning that they'll remain until illegally annexed Crimea is returned to Ukraine? Would a "puppet" of Putin's have bombed the airfield of Russia's second most important ally in the Middle East, mass murderer Bashir Assad? Indeed, would Putin's easily manipulated "puppet" be reviving and reorganizing the coalition of Arab Sunni states against Islamonazi terrorist Iran, Putin's most important economic, strategic and military partner in the region? What kind of "puppet" strikes blow after blow at it's master and makes him progressively weaker? It's unheard of!
 
 
 
 
 
Putin absolutely must be sh*tting a brick over Donald Trump's bold reassertion of U.S. power and leadership in the region. Any threat to Bashir Assad's murderous regime or, worse still, to the "death to America" mullah theocracy (which Trump is hell-bent on destroying) is a threat to Russian interests in the region which are huge and worth billions.
 
 
 
 
 
Obama's reckless dismantling of the Pax Americana has been the greatest enabler of post-Soviet Russian power since the fall of the Soviet Union. Before Obama took office CNN could never have aired the documentary: Vladimir Putin: The World's Most Powerful Man (see) .
 
Russia Rushes In
 
The restoring of the Pax Americana is bad news for neo-imperialist Vladimir Putin and everything that he's accomplished during the Obama years in trying to make Russia great again: i.e., restore some measure of the global reach it had as the Soviet Union, America's chief rival in the world for decades. Indeed, Putin's "puppet" is slowly, incrementally and methodically chipping away at Russia's power and influence, weakening, undermining, downsizing it...making Russia small again. Trump's agenda for reversing America's decline and making it greater than ever means Russia losing much if not all it has gained since Obama started the reckless retreat of American power; this has thrown the Middle East into deadly sectarian turmoil and strife causing more instability and terrorism, and a massive refugee problem overwhelming Europe. It's a zero sum game that Putin's now losing after winning so much clout, power and prestige due to Obama's policies; in short, Putin's so called "puppet" Donald Trump is becoming his worse nightmare.
 
 
The emergence of a great world leader.
 
This past weekend's extraordinary events in Riyadh not only dealt a huge hammer blow to Putin, but it blew up the phony left-wing media lie of President Trump being a covert Russian agent or spy in criminal collusion with Putin....blackmailed or forced into treason to benefit Russia at U.S. expense. It's hilarious the nonsense people come up with!
 
 
TRUMP IS MAGA AND MAGA IS TRUMP!
 
Donald Trump won't allow Russia or Iran or any country or alliance or enemy within (the deep state, media, Democrat party and GOPe) to stand in the way of his patriotic plans for making America great again. The American eagle is again in flight. The Pax Americana is on the rise.

DONALD TRUMP, JAMES COMEY AND THE OBSTRUCTION OF BUPKIS

 
 
 
 
 
Another day and another phony revelation from the imploding destroy Trump media causing a new fake crisis for the administration which will go the way of all the others into inconsequential oblivion. This time the gun, firing blanks at the prez, is alleged to be an unclassified memo written by ex FBI chief Comey leaked over the phone by an associate to a New York Times reporter. It claims that President Trump at an Oval Office meeting in February with  Comey asked him to end the investigation into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn, himself the victim of leaks. What was leaked (or what the Times wanted us to see to the exclusion of all else because it had the semblance of criminality) was this horrendous thing:
 
“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Trump supposedly told Comey. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”
 
 "I hope you can let Flynn go"? Is that all he said? Does it sound like an instruction laid down by Trump for Comey to follow? Does it sound like a demand or command from our so called "fuhrer in chief" for Comey to obey, OR ELSE run the risk of firing, injury or death? It's nothing of the sort. What it is, is an acknowledgement by Trump that the investigation of Flynn is in Comey's hands, not his; that he and he alone is the decider running the show and he would like to see his friend let go as he believes in his innocence. Since when is a president expressing an opinion to an FBI Director about an investigation a criminal obstruction of justice? It's unheard of.
 
Yet the lying lunatic get Trump press is characterizing this as an "obstruction of justice" reaching epic, earthshaking "Watergate proportions." That these 28 words constitute the high, impeachable presidential crime of the ages; that they will bring down Trump where 23 unremitting months of anti-Trump propaganda and open warfare have failed. Is this all they got after all this time to strip Trump of the presidency and put him in jail? If so what they have is
 
OBSTRUCTION OF BUPKIS
 
 Nothing. Absolutely, completely, provably NOTHING! I repeat, there was no coercion of any sort, no menacing threats, no warnings Comey might lose his job or wind up dead at the bottom of the Potomac. What Trump did at this meeting was so innocuous, unoffending, decent and good, so lacking in criminal intent, that when the meeting ended what did Comey do? BUPKIS! Instead of going straight to the Attorney General to report Trump's damning "crime" (AS THE LAW REQUIRES*), and begin an investigation, Comey either returned to his job of catching bad guys, or went home where he made notes to memorialize the meeting for himself and posterity.
 
Acting FBI chief Andrew McCabe (a Democrat) denies any interference from Trump administration in any FBI investigation.
 
And that would have been the end of it. No one but Comey would have known of this memo's existence were it not for his being sacked by Trump for incompetence and corruption (see). Then all hell broke lose in the hate Trump media culminating in this NY Times leak designed to stir up more trouble for the prez on top of his meeting with two of Putin's henchmen.
 
 
The Comey memo is nothing but a nothing burger served up by Comey and the media for consumption by idiots ignorant of the law.
 
In other words, and this is extremely important to understand,  if, as alleged, President Trump attempted to obstruct justice and tried to shut down the Flynn probe we would have heard about it THREE MONTHS AGO. Within a week or two of the meeting there would have been leaks to the Times, WaPo and CNN that the president was under criminal investigation by his own Justice Department for obstructing justice; it would have been the Trump Watergate disaster that his enemies have been desperately trying and failing to create to remove him from office; and today as I write, and you read these words, they'd either be impeachment proceedings in the House, or, like Nixon, Trump might have resigned replaced by Mike Pence.
 
But Comey found nothing unethical, immoral, wrong or criminal with the president that day. NOTHING ZILCH NADA. The meeting was bupkis then and it's bupkis now turned into a ruckus and media row by a mortified Comey out for revenge because Trump dared to fire him...ten months too late (he should have been sacked in July). No crime. No fire. No smoking gun to shoot Trump down. There was only a president speaking from the heart about a good friend and patriot who was the victim of a criminal leak hoping that Comey would see reason and stop investigating him. This is the new Watergate that will Nixonize Trump? It ain't going to happen my friends. And if you want further proof read the rest of this article to the end:
 
*THE LAW COMEY SWORE TO UPHOLD
 
 
 
As you will see from the following,  if there was "obstruction" and Comey didn't report it immediately to the Justice Department then he was involved in a conspiracy to obstruct justice.
 
18 USC 4 and 28 
 USC 1361
 
 Under the law, Comey is required to immediately inform the 
 Department of Justice of any attempt to obstruct justice by any 
 person, even the President of the United States. Failure to do so 
 would result in criminal charges against Comey. (18 USC 4 and 28 
 USC 1361) He would also, upon sufficient proof, lose his license 
 to practice law. 

So, if Comey believed Trump attempted to obstruct justice, did he 
comply with the law by reporting it to the DOJ? If not, it calls 
into question whether the events occurred as the Times reported 
 it. 

 Obstruction requires what's called "specific intent" to interfere 
 with a criminal case. If Comey concluded, however, that Trump's 
 language was vague, ambiguous or elliptical, then he has no duty 
 under the law to report it because it does not rise to the level 
|of specific intent. Thus, no crime. 

There is no evidence Comey ever alerted officials at the Justice 
 Department, as he is duty-bound to do. Surely if he had, that 
 incriminating information would have made its way to the public 
 either by an indictment or, more likely, an investigation that 
could hardly be kept confidential in the intervening months.

But if you divert your eyes you will have no idea.

That is the Trump Cult Boy way

ApolloSpeaks  

Pure anti-Trump slander. Trump mocked the denial of a story the reporter wrote,  not the repoter's disability which was unknown to him ... as is proved in this video:

In this video Trump uses the same spastic gestures to mock an army general and Ted Cruz  neither of whom are handicapped:

RICHARD MILHOUS TRUMP AND ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN, AGAIN? HISTORICAL PARALLELS (SARCASM)

 
 
Richard Milhous Trump?
 
 
 
My God! Is Donald Trump and Collusiongate Richard Nixon and Watergate all over again? Is Trump headed for impeachment, resignation and disgrace with Mike Pence replacing him as president? There are historical parallels suggesting this will happen that will make you cheer or cringe depending which side of the isle you are on.
 
 
 
For example, March 4th, the day President Trump accused Obama in several tweets of wiretapping Trump Tower, was the 43rd anniversary of the "Watergate Seven" indictment for burglarizing and bugging the Democrat National Committee's Watergate headquarters. Could this be a sign that Trump and his men colluded with the Russians in hacking Podesta and the DNC and stealing their emails?   And perhaps hacking the White House in 2014, and everything in between? It's not far fetched given the love fest we just witnessed between Trump and Foreign Minister Lavrov - the worst desecration of the Oval Office since Monica Lewinsky (of Russian-Jewish descent) relieved Bill Clinton of his frustrations with Hillary and Newt Gingrich.
 
 
April 29th, the final day of Trump's first 100 days, when he skipped the White House correspondent's dinner (Woodward and Bernstein were there) for a rally with fans in Pennsylvania, was the 43rd anniversary of Nixon releasing edited transcripts of White House tapes related to Watergate. An ominous sign for Trump and his taping of Comey warning him that he could disappear like another man named James with the last name Hoffa of union fame.   
 
 
 
But it gets worse! When Trump defying Comey fired him on May 9th it was the 43rd anniversary of the House Judiciary Committee opening impeachment hearings against Nixon; this was five months after he fired Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox...the "Saturday Night Massacre" it was called where dead bodies littered the White House on every floor and on the outside lawn.
   This is too much a coincidence to be coincidental. It looks more like a sign from the gods that Trump will be undone before his 71st birthday next monthFace the facts folks: where there's smoke there's fire; and things are looking mighty grim for President Trump and his Collusiongate Men.
 
 
 
 
   Kidding aside. Where are the apples to apples Watergate  crimes committed by Trump and his men? Could there have been a Watergate scandal without the break in? Could there have been any cover up, lies and obstruction of justice without that stupid damning crime? Nixon is laughing in his grave at the Dems who succeeded in hanging him. The ropes are around their political necks and they don't even know it despite the heavy loses over the years when Obama led them over a cliff with a thousand Dems losing legislature seats.
 
 
 
Collusiongate is fake Watergate because there's no known crime or a scintilla of one to drive Trump from office. Instead, we have the destroy Trump media creating a thick choking fog of fake black smoke desperately in search of real fire to roast him...or a smoking gun to shot him down instead of firing blanks. It's nothing worse than that; and Trump, certain of his destiny of reversing America's decline, is enjoying watching the three-ring circus of resist, obstruct and deny going round in circles getting nowhere as the audience grows tired. 
 
 
 
The real scandal is a corrupt, hyperpartisan media's all out war on Trump for defying their predictions and polls and beating sure to win Hillary after whipping 16 GOP pols; and daring to be a president who won't turn his cheek when slapped and fights back hell-bent on counter-punching his way to their second defeat in 2020. Compared to Trump they're midgets with pee shooters firing spit balls at a battleship achieving nothing. After 100 days of spitting  venom at Trump what have they gained? He's more electable now than on November 8th. Polls show Trump's core supporters remain in tact and would elect him again, with Hillary losing the popular vote by three points (see). And in state after state Dems keep on losing post-2016 elections. Prelude to a 2018 disaster.   
 
   
 
 
 This isn't Watergate, it's Mediahate. That's the real scandal, folks. My advice to you is this: stock up well on organic popcorn (I'm a right-wing health food nut), enough for three thrilling years of the greatest show on planet Earth: Watergate in reverse where the media will be impeached in the court of public opinion as prosperity returns lifting most boats, and America is made great again after Obama tried flushing us down the drain. The time ahead is going to be fun; but not if you're Trump hate derangement scum.
 
 
 
 
POSTSCRIPT
 
Though the Russians for decades (going back to their Soviet days) have been engaging in cyber warfare against the USA here's a picture of Hillary in 2009 (fully aware of anti-US Russian hacking crimes) laughing it up with Lavrov over her idiotic Russian reset button farce.

DEMOCRAT POLLSTER’S POST-ELECTION POLL FINDS “COMEY EFFECT” AND “RUSSIAN-WIKI EFFECT” DIDN’T EFFECT OUTCOME OF ELECTION 
 
 
 

IF COMEY FOUND THE TRUMP-PUTIN COLLUSION LINK HE’D BE A DEAD MAN, STUPID!

   

Did James Comey find the smoking gun (the treasonous collusion link to Russia) that could bring down Donald Trump and his presidency? Or was he hot on the trail of finding it drawing closer and closer until Trump stopped him in his tracks and fired him-as many Trump haters across the net believe? Assuming they are right, then what Comey knows (hard evidence or circumstantial of collusion) would make him the most dangerous man alive for Trump's political survival. It means that Trump's impeachment, disgrace and imprisonment are very much in Comey's hands making him a very powerful man; making him the ultimate weapon for anti-Trump derangement forces for obliterating him.   

 
 
 
The question then is this: if Comey uncovered the secret link criminally connecting Trump to Putin, or was close to finding it, why is he still alive to talk about it? Why didn't "fascist," "authoritarian," "Hitlerian" Trump (the most evil man on earth), who said he could "shoot people with impunity on 5th Avenue in daylight," have Comey killed dead? Why instead did he simply fire him and let him slide when what he knows could force Trump to resign, and make Mike Pence 46th President? It makes no sense!
 
 
With all the resources at Trump's command it would be a cinch for him to kill Comey and get away with it. Trump's buddy Putin kills his   enemies all the time, and would in fact help him dispose of Comey, or show him how best to do it KGB style. Trump was Putin's "Siberian Candidate" during the election; now he's Putin's puppet president at his beck and call because of what he knows from hacked copies of Trump's tax returns and other damning things. Trump is Putin's super agent for making Russia great again; and if Comey could oust him from power Putin would put him in the grave - and make it look like the work of the Clintons in revenge for Comey making Trump President. 
 
 
But it appears Trump and Putin are letting Comey live because he has zilch to hurt Trump with.  After a nine month probe and millions spent Comey has come up empty-handed without a scrap of evidence; nothing remotely incriminating to hang Trump, his family, associates and friends with-though all of them are guilty as hell being one big pro-Russian cabal....as every Trump hater suspects. In short, Trump and Putin are letting Comey live because their secret is buried so deep no one can find it. Not even them.

Zogby Analytics -- Post election poll results

John Zogby

Enraged, deranged, vicious "Not My President" Trump haters who feel cheated that Hillary Clinton lost the election and blame it on a combination of Russian interference using hacked DNC emails, and Jim Comey's renewed 11th hour  probe into Hillary's emails will hate this excellent underreported post-election poll that proves them flat out wrong. Professional pollster John Zogby (a radically left, pro-Clinton, Democrat Arab American) took a scientific poll on November 16th (eight days after the election) to determine when voters made their decision for whom to vote for. What Zogby found was this:

When did you make your decision for whom to vote for President?

A year ago 26%
More than a month ago 39
During the presidential debates 18
In the last week before voting 8 
In the 24 hours before voting 4
In the voting booth 3
Not sure 3

26% (29 million voters) made up their minds one year before the election; 39% (52 million) made up their minds prior to October 7th, the day the massive Russian-DNC-WikiLeaks email dump began; 18% (24 million) made their decision based on the three Trump-Clinton debates (September 26th, October 10th, and October 20th). In sum, according to Zogby 83% of voters (112 million out of 135 million) were completely uninfluenced by the WikiLeaks emails.

 
 

 

But what of the remaining 17% or 23 million voters who were still undecided after the last presidential debate, and made up their minds in the final days and hours of the campaign? Most analysts agree that this was the group that decided the election for change agent Donald Trump over establishment candidate Hillary Clinton; that late in the day they broke for Trump in the battle ground, swing states that mattered (Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan), and where Hillary was out polling him right up to the end. But why did these swing state voters break for Trump?

THE RUSSIAN DNC/PODESTA HACK

 Indeed, did the steady drip drip drip of the Wiki-emails throughout October disillusion hundreds and thousands of Hillary leaning voters in the three swing states causing them to vote for anyone but her, or not vote at all depriving her of crucial votes to the benefit of Trump?

The answer is an emphatic NO!. For many reasons it's practically impossible that WikiLeaks mattered with late undecided voters; and this is born out by Zogby who makes mention of a "Comey effect" in his polling data (which I'll get to later), but not of a "Wiki effect." Why the one and not the other when both were and still are hotly debated controversial subjects? The answer is simple: unlike the "Comey effect" Zogby, when questioning voters, couldn't find a "Wiki effect." Either Zogby found that the impact of the stolen Hillary related emails was too slight to have any post-election interest; or it was completely nonexistent; and this is understandable given the nature of the emails.

Indeed, while the DNC/Podesta emails did provide the basis for a lot of negative stories about Hillary (and hilarious right-wing mockery and propaganda) they were no more harmful to her campaign than annoying little pin pricks; they weren't politically damaging like the criminal probe into her server and emails that she lied about to the public and unsuccessfully tried to the cover up. In comparison the emails were as nothing to the electorate who were accustomed to hearing much worse about Hillary.

TRUMP'S SEXUAL ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS VS. HILLARY RELATED EMBARRASSING EMAILS

 

 

Look at it this way: if Donald Trump's infamous, lewd Hollywood Access groper tape, (which surfaced an hour before Julian Assange published the DNC/Podesta emails), and subsequent multiple sexual assault allegations, failed to politically hurt or stop him (though a majority of voters believed they were true, see) what fatal political damage could Hillary have suffered from the Wiki stuff?

Indeed, which is worse and more offensive for turning off actual or potential voters? Trump's groper/assault scandal where women are demeaned as sexual objects and playthings? Or emails showing John Podesta bad mouthing Hillary and questioning her judgment? Or Hillary saying she wanted "a hemispheric borderless common market," "single payer healthcare," and that as President she'd implement gun control by executive order"? In other words, if "gropergate" scarcely hurt Trump with late voters then what significant electoral harm could the Wiki-emails caused Hillary?

 

PUTIN THE KINGMAKER?

 

 

So where does that leave Vladimir Putin? True, he (and his Kremlin hackers) tried to interfere with the election  preferring Trump to Hillary. True he hoped that the Wiki-emails would help Trump's cause and even perhaps, serving as a distraction, counter the negative effects of the Hollywood Access tape*. But was Putin Trump's kingmaker? Absolutely not! And because Putin and the Wiki-emails had zero to do with Trump's victory Zogby couldn't find evidence of a "Wiki Effect" among the voters he questioned and omits it from his survey.

*It's no mere coincidence that on October 7th, when Julian Assange published the DNC/Podesta emails it was one hour after the Access Hollywood tape surfaced (see). It is also interesting to note that October 7th was Vladimir Putin's 64rd birthday (see).

 THE COMEY EFFECT

 
Now while Zogby couldn't find a "Wiki effect" negatively impacting voters about Hillary (which he certainly looked for when questioning them) he did find a fairly substantial "Comey Effect" in 38% or 51 million voters. But as I will attempt to prove using Zogby's polling data the Comey Effect may have somewhat changed the electoral vote count, but not the outcome of the election.
Zogby asked voters the following:
 

"Did the re-opening of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server  [on Oct. 28] have a negative impact, positive impact or no impact on your feelings toward Hillary Clinton as a candidate for President? "

And the result was:

Negative impact 30%
Positive impact 8
No impact 58
Not sure 4  

Now according to Zogby 30% or 40.5 million voters had their feelings negatively impacted by Comey's 11th hour Hillary probe, which dominated the news cycle for nine days. And while 83% of these or 33.6 million already made up their minds who to vote for the question is this: did the remaining 17% or 6.9 million undecided voters decide the election for Trump based on the Comey effect? At first glance it would seem so. For if we evenly divide these 6.9 million undecideds between each of the 50 states it comes to 138, 000 voters per state. Now with Trump's close victories in each of the three swing states that won him the White House way under 138,000 votes (Pennsylvania 44,000,  Wisconsin 23,000 and Michigan 10,000) it would appear that James Comey was Trump's kingmaker -- as Hillary Clinton believes.

TOP VOTER ISSUES

But Hillary is greatly, greatly mistaken. For when we factor in Zogby's data on the top issues that concerned voters (and especially the undecideds) we learn that Trump could have likely lost only one of the three key states due to the Comey Effect. In other words, as you will see, if Comey hadn't renewed the investigation into Hillary Trump would have won the electoral vote anyway.

According to Zogby top issues for voters were as follows:

Economy/jobs 32%
Taxes 5
Syria 1
Immigration 7
Trust/Truthfulness 11
Terrorism 8
The Environment 5 
Energy 1
The budget deficit 6
Social security 6
Medicare/Medicaid 4
Obamacare 8
Other (specify) 8 

You will notice that the top issue "Economy/Jobs" at 32% is followed by an issue relevant to the Comey Effect, "Trust/Truthfulness," and this intensely concerned 11% of the voters. Now 11% of the 6.9 million voters who were negatively impacted by the Comey Effect and were likely swayed by the trust issue to vote for Trump (or one of the third-party candidates) over Hillary was 759,000 votes.

But the question again is this: did the 11% influenced by Comey win the presidency (as Hillary and others believe) for Donald Trump? The answer is an emphatic NO! Whichever way I crunched the numbers (there's only two ways of doing this) it didn't add up to a win for Hillary.

For example, using the simple method of equally dividing the 759,000 Comey influenced/trust votes between each of the 50 states it gives us 15,180 votes per state. And 15,180 is only more (by 5180) than the margin of Trump's victory in  one of the three key swing states: Michigan (10,000 votes). Giving Michigan with its 16 electoral votes to Hillary does nothing to change the outcome of the election.

According to The Daily Telegraph Corey Lewandowski said that Comey's late investigation into Hillary related emails gave the Trump campaign "a little spring in their step." And so it did. But just a little; not enough to make a decisive difference.
 

However, when I used a more sophisticated method where I worked out the math on a state by state basis the result, beginning with Pennsylvania remained unchanged:

PENNSYLVANIA  

                             

2,970,733 - Trump votes

505,024 - 17% undecided

151,507 - 30% Comey effect

16,665 -11% trust top issue

44,000 - Trump's margin of victory

WISCONSIN                                  

1,405,284 - Trump votes 

238,898 - 17% undecided

71,669 - 30% Comey effect

7883 - 11% trust top issue

23,000 - T's margin of victory

MICHIGAN

                                   

2,279,543 - Trump votes

387,522 -17% undecided

116,256 - 30% Comey effect

14,867 - 11% trust top issue

10,000 - Trump's margin of victory

  As you can see when taking the percentage of undecided voters in each of the three key swing states where Trump narrowly won, and then further reducing that number to Comey Effect voters, then reducing that to trust issue voters, again only in Michigan does it appear that the Comey Effect could have been the decisive factor helping Trump. In Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, as with the other 27 states Trump won, the overriding issue that put him over the top was the economy and jobs. In only one state Michigan does it appear it was the trust issue influenced by the short-lived Comey probe.  

In sum, if there were no stolen DNC WikiLeaks emails, nor the 11th hour FBI Clinton email probe, Donald Trump would be exactly where he is today: 45th President of the United States -- but with less controversy about his historic, astonishing PROVIDENTIAL victory.

[REPOST] VICTORY FOR ANTI-OBAMACARE LITE FOES! AND THE SIGN OF THE STAMP ACT (PREFIGURING BY 7 YEARS OBAMACARE’S INEVITABLE DEMISE)

 
On March 23rd I declared victory when the Freedom Caucus killed the vote for the repeal of Obamacare in the House. But I predicted that a better bill would soon pass. And it has.  
 
 
 
 
 
                      
 
 
VICTORY FOR ANTI-OBAMACARE LITE FOES!
 
As for President Trump (who was led astray by Paul Ryan) it's just a temporary setback on the way to repeal and replace "CRAZY (Bill Clinton)," MISTAKEN (Chuck Schumer)" "TRAINWRECK (Max Baucus)" Obamacare.
 
The celebration of Democrats over the Trump/Ryan failure is laughable. House and Senate Republicans one and all (and most rank and file party members) are united on ends and divided on means. They are hell-bent and unified on wanting to repeal and replace collapsing, imploding, impoverishing, class warfare Obamacare, but differ on how to do it. When they resolve their differences, which I'm confident they will do soon, Obamacare will join Romneycare, Hillarycare and Single Payer (Bernie Sanders)
Vermontcare on the ash heap of history.
 
                    

See my prediction of Obamacare's inevitable repeal and demise based on the 18th century repeal of the Stamp Act. This ancient sign of liberty from unfair taxation and oppression shows that Obamacare was doomed from the start and doesn't have a future.

WHY TRUMP’S FIRST HUNDRED DAYS BEATS RONALD REAGAN’S – PART 2

 

 

TRUMP BEATS REAGAN'S FIRST 100 DAYS

 

 THE PROOF

 

 

Indeed, when we look back at Reagan's first 100 days what were the most striking, memorable and consequential things? First off there was the end of the long, agonizing 444 day Iran Hostage Crisis just hours after Reagan took office. But that was President Carter's achievement as he negotiated an end to the crisis with Iran months before.

 

 

What next comes to mind was the attempted assassination on Reagan's life, extraordinary in that he was the first president to take a would be assassin's bullet and survive.

 

 

What else was there? Nothing of immediate importance or consequence. Reagan proposed the largest peacetime defense build up in U.S. history, which he would get well after his first 100 days. Also to spur the faltering economy Reagan proposed major across the board cuts in personal and corporate taxes. These he would get later that year when the stagflation he inherited from Carter worsened, and joblessness and inflation went into double digits.

 

But Trump wasted little time in getting to work on the economy. From day one he started signing Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolutions nullifying unnecessary growth inhibiting, jobs killing red tape and regulations from the economically flat to failing Obama era. Totaling 13 in number (the most of any President) these CRAs have just about completely dismantled Obama's destructive regulatory regime (much of it based on fake climate science) which is hurting businesses and costing the economy an estimated $100 billion per year (see). Moreover, in his first 100 days Trump revived, to the cheers of the International Workers Union and pro-fossil fuel advocates, the XL Keystone and Dakota Access pipeline projects. These will create tens and thousands of high paying construction, manufacturing and spinoff jobs.

 

Other positive actions taken by Trump that has inspired a new optimism in the business and energy communities is his replacing Obama era anti-business, anti-free market, anti-fossil fuel personnel with their opposites in his administration. This sets the stage for realizing (among other things) Trump's vision of transforming America into a 21st century energy HYPERPOWER which has the potential of creating millions of new jobs.

 

As is clearly evident from the above Trump's first 100 days trump's Reagans. But where Trump truly shines beating out the Gipper is in the reassertion of US military power and restoring our leadership role on the world stage after a period of steep decline during the feckless, lead from behind Obama years.

 

 

It's amazing but as a possible sign of reversing Americas military and geopolitical decline, with a victorious Reagan-like peace through strength foreign policy, Trump (who was inaugurated on the 70th year, 7th month and 7th day of his life see) on April 7th (Syrian time), which was the 77th day of his presidency (see), launched the punishing attack on the Syrian air base for Assad's murderous use of chemical weapons*. It's as if Trump set in motion something quite significant and far reaching that day that will prove to be an important factor in restoring American greatness*. However, Reagan would do nothing comparable until late 1983 when he ordered the invasion of Grenada to depose an oppressive, pro-Castro communist regime. 

*The attack was launched in the evening of April 6th Washington time, which was April 7th in Syria. April 6th (the 77th day of Trump's Presidency) was the 100th anniversary of President Wilson declaring war on Germany, thus bringing us into World War I.

 

 MAKING RUSSIA SMALL AGAIN

 

 

Defying his expectations Trump's actions in Syria were a blow to Russia's strong man President Vladimir Putin who was made to look weak and helpless as his ally Assad was pounded. Moreover, politically this decisive action against Assad quickly put to rest the ridiculous notion that Trump was covertly colluding with Putin and was his puppet or agent. Indeed, just as those eight strong years of Ronald Reagan brought the Soviets to their knees it looks like eight strong years of Donald Trump will put Putin back in his place, and make Russia small again. Also impressive is Trump getting China to stand up to North Korea as he was striking Assad; and his threat to levy new sanctions on Iran for illegally test firing a ballistic missile.

 

 

And lastly, on April 7th, the day Trump bombed Syria, the Senate confirmed Neil Gorsuch as Supreme Court judge. This was the first time since 1881 that a sitting President did this in his first 100 days.

 

 Trump said this of Reagan when he was a liberal Democrat and supporter of Jesse Jackson's bid for the Presidency. Now that Trump's a Republican President the liberal Democrats are saying the same thing about him.

With business and consumer confidence soaring in anticipation of a robustly growing economy, and the Fed joining in with two recent interest rate hikes, that Trump's first 100 days were a disaster because of a few executive orders held up in the courts (which will be resolved in the Supreme Court), and a temporary set back on healthcare reform (more of the Freedom Caucus is now on board), is ludicrous in the extreme. There are the anti-Trump media distortions of Trump's first 100 days and the reality of his achievements which put him ahead of Ronald Reagan. It took 18 months for Reagan to get his act together; and my guess is that Trump (who has shown he can learn) will do that under budget and in less time.

 

We are in the SECOND 100 DAYS of THE GREAT DISRUPTER'S     EIGHT MIGHTY MAGA YEARS as his vicious political and media enemies continue to implode trying desperately to take him down. It's both fascinating and amusing to watch. 

 

 

 

 POSTSCRIPT

 

The above excellent New York Times article on Reagan's achievements in his first 100 days reports the following:

"Mr. Reagan's achievements so far are contained in a package of proposals including 83 major program changes, 834 amendments to the budget this year and next, 151 lesser budgetary actions and 60 additional pieces of legislation. Not until March 31 did he sign his first bill - cutting back dairy price supports - on a breakfast tray at George Washington University Hospital the morning after he was shot. If the bulk of his program is enacted, it won't be until much later in the year, and it is far from certain what form it will be in by then."
 
As you can see Reagan's greatest achievements in his first 100 days were a PACKAGE OF PROPOSALS none of which (with one exception) were enacted before the end of that period. Trump's first 100 days towers above Reagan's in achievements. And his package of proposals for changing the economic, military and geostrategic direction of our nation is just as vast, comprehensive and ambitious as Reagan's.  
 
In fact, while Reagan signed his first bill on March 31 (the day he was shot) Trump by early April had signed twice as many bills as Obama.
 
 
In short, Trump had one hell of a first 100 days.

[REPOST] WHAT DID DEMOCRAT GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWNS COST THE US ECONOMY?

 

This post was originally published on October 24, 2013.

 
SHAME ON YOU REPUBLICANS
for costing Obama's weak, pathetic trickle growth economy $24 billion! When Democrats shut down government five times in the late 1970s causing Jimmy Carter's miserable stagflationary economy $85 billion that was okay. It's only when you Republicans cost the economy money that's it's shameful, vile and sick.
 
The 16 day "world ending" federal shutdown was the 18th and third longest in our history. Of these 18 Democrats were responsible for 15, Republicans for 3 giving us a ratio of 3:1. Now (rightly or wrongly) according to Standard & Poors the cost of this recent shutdown to the economy was an estimated $24 billion (see); assuming that S&P is correct and that 16 days of shutdown would consistently cost $24 billion (or $1.5 billion per day) what then would be the total cost of Democrat shutdowns versus Republican shutdowns since the first shutdown 37 years ago? According to my calculations (using $26 billion as a baseline) Democrat shutdown costs to the economy are twice Republican costs. Here is how I figure it:
 
Below is a list of all 18 government shutdowns and their duration, ending with "D" or "R" indicating which party was responsible (see)
  
      September 30 to October 11, 1976 (10 days) D 
September 30 to October 13, 1977 (12 days) D 
October 31 to November 9, 1977 (8 days) D
November 30 to December 9, 1977 (8 days) D
September 30 to October 18, 1978 (18 days D
September 30 to October 12, 1979 (11 days) D
November 20 to November 23, 1981 (3 days) D
September 30 to October 2, 1982 (1 day) D
December 17 to December 21, 1982 (3 days) D
November 10 to November 14, 1983 (3 days) D
September 30 to October 3, 1984 (2 days) D
October 3 to October 5, 1984 (1 day) D
October 16 to October 18, 1986 (1 day) D
December 18 to December 20, 1987 (1 day) D
October 5 to October 9, 1990 (3 days) D
November 13  to November 19, 1995 (5 days) R
December 5, 1995 to January 6, 1996 (21 days) R
October 1, 2013 to October 17, 2013 (16 days) R
 
You will notice that the 15 Democrat shutdowns totaled 84 days, while the three Republican shutdowns totaled exactly half at 42. Now if every 16 days of shutdown cost the economy $24 billion (or $1.5 billion per day) then 84 days would cost a total of $126 billion, and 42 days $63 billion. Well then if Republicans and Tea Party patriots are “arsonists,” “extortionists,” “terrorists,” and every imaginable evil thing under the sun for shutting the government down for 16 days at a cost of $24 billion then Democrats are doubly, monstrously and satanically evil; for they cost the economy twice the overall sum of Republicans inflicting far greater pain. In other words, Republicans have much catching up to do to match Democrat shutdown wickedness.

CRITICAL COMMENT FROM WILLIAM OF WALES

My dear Apollo,

greatly enjoyed your article, and original approach to the subject. But a little friendly criticism is in order. You’re wrong about the Democrats owning all of the first 15 US government shutdowns. And you’re wrong about Republicans owning the last three. No doubt Democrats bore responsibility for the first six shutdowns under Ford and Carter. But the seventh in 1981 was due to Ronald Reagan; and the 16th in 1995 was due to Bill Clinton. In those two years Reagan and Clinton ordered the shutdowns because Congress wouldn’t give them the budget they wanted. So the score of 15 to 3 holds with Democrats picking up and Republicans losing two days, 86 to 40, with Democrats costing the economy a few billion more.

God bless,

William

Question for Apollo: You said in your reply to Eric23skidoo that it’s “impossible to determine or quantify the economic damage done by government shut downs; and that S&P’s figure of $24 billion is “obviously bogus and politically motivated.” I’d appreciate it if you could elaborate on this.
 
ObamaRocks
 
I would like to know why apollospeaks thinks that the $26 billion the Teapublican shutdown cost the economy is bogus?
 
MY ANSWER
 
First off S&P is under investigation by the Justice Department for its bond rating activity (giving AAA ratings to worthless mortgaged backed securities) leading up to the 2008 housing/financial meltdown, and has every incentive to kiss Obama's butt (see). Secondly, the economic impact of the shutdown was probably zero for the sensible reasons given in this Forbes article: There Will Be No $24B Economic Loss From The Government Shutdown - Forbes
 
Now if S&P, Obama and his political and media proxies are going to use this bogus $24 billion to shame Republicans for the shutdown then (all being fair in love and war) why not turn it against them and use it as a baseline for determining the economic costs of Democrat shutdowns?

If you want us to read your links you'll have to provide ones that aren't biased from the outset.I love how instead of actually researching the previous shutdowns to see what they actually cost the economy you just use the recent one as a baseline and then assume that all shutdowns are equally expensive. You don't know that. You might think it sounds logical but you also think that conservatism is logical when really its quite dubious.

While the economic damage that government shutdowns (anyone's shutdowns) do to the economy is impossible to determine (S&P's figures are obviously bogus and politically driven) what we do know for sure is that when it comes to shutdowns Democrats have out done Republicans 3:1 and racked up a total of 86 shutdown days vs 40 by Republicans. And if you (or any lib) want to imagine that 86 shutdown days could possibly do less economic damage than 40 days who then is being illogical? Who then is being biased? Who then is involved in a con?

outlandish   October 26, 2013 at 7:06am The longest Democrat shutdown was 3 days and all Tip O'Neil asked for was a personal letter for all the Democrats from Reagan asking for them to lift it. There's a huge difference between the Republican shutdowns and Democrat shutdowns and that difference is making a point with no damage as opposed to demanding their way or the economy gets it.

LOL!......you make a lot of assumptions.....but everyone needs a dream....and that's yours....LOL!

 

 

Assumptions based on the economic history of this country going back 96 years to the Roaring, Soaring, Prospering Twenties unleashed by Supply-side ("trickle down') ideas. But don't take my word for it or from any right-winger. If JFK were alive today it's 1000% certain he'd be backing Donald Trump's (what I call his) "Five Point Maganomics Program" for super charging the US economy. Why? Because it's practically identical with his pro-business, pro-growth, "trickle-down" tax reduction, GDP boosting policies which made him, his family and the nation more prosperous:

Go peddle your blog to someone else, I'm not interested in what you're selling.

What I'm selling is salvation from the 7th rung of radical leftist hell. What I'm selling is a way out of your ignorance, confusion and despair. I'm a friend not an enemy, Sy. I feel your pain. Please, let me help you.  It won't cost you a dime.

 

No it's you who need me to rescue you from the political catastrophe ahead that Trump is causing with his disastrous presidency and policies. Mark my words: He will not be able to push his agenda through congress. He's failed to garner the votes to repeal Obamacare. Republicans will never be able to agree on legislation to get anywhere, thank God. Trump is George Bush's third term and, mark my words, he's going to plunge the country into another recession with his tax cuts just as Bush did.  

Indeed, by the time four years rolls by, if Trump's still president, you won't find anyone who will publicly admit to voting for him...like Bush. They will primary him...and he'll lose. That all hinges on him staying out of prison for his collusion with Russia. It's already caused four members of his administration to either resign or recuse themselves...Flynn, Sessions, Nunes, and now Chaffetz... Trump has failure written all over his orange face. And on Election Day 2020 the House, Senate and Presidency will belong to us Democrats. 

You have the same Trump derangement mentality that laughed uproariously when he announced his candidacy, and confidently predicted he wouldn't survive the first GOP debate; then predicted he'd never surmount GOP establishment and media opposition to win the primaries; then predicted he'd be defeated by the" Never Trumpers" at the GOP convention and be denied the nomination; then predicted that Hillary would crush him and finish him off in the first debate; then predicted his massive defeat because of the Access Hollywood groper tape and multiple groping charges. 

I'm watching Trump with the utmost glee triumphantly dismantling piece by piece Obama's growth killing declinist globalist legacy, and cowardly appeasement foreign policy; and preparing the economy for a robust Reagan-like recovery and return of America to greatness. And you're hopelessly stuck in the same stupid groupthink mindset that was certain he wouldn't get to first base during the campaign. Pathetic. Heck, the nomination of Gorsuch alone puts Trump far ahead of Reagan's first 100 days (made memorable by the Hinkley shooting). Only angry, frustrated, mentally deranged Trump haters are blind to what he's now accomplishing.

Get used to it friend:

This unpredictable, gravity defying, indefatigable man is in the first 100 days of eight victorious MAGA years.

Howard Craft  ApolloSpeaks 

The first 100 days are not looking like a good harbinger.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Neither did the first three quarters of the Superbowl for the Patriots look good for them, nor the first four games of the World Series for the Cubs. The later was a sign of Trump's come from behind election victory in November. The later could very well foreshadow that Trump is the Tom Brady of American politics, and will come back from near certain defeat to take the 2020 election.

Failure now indicates future success ?

Hey, I hope he does well....

No. Like the Cubs and Patriots it APPEARS that Trump is failing as president, just as it APPEARED for 16 months that his presidential campaign was failing and he'd lose the nomination, then the election. 

What will guarantee Trump's success and reelection is the doubling of Obama's pathetic, flat to failing, trickle growth economy of 1.48% GDP to a more robust 3%. Given all the pent up growth in the economy this 3% (which will expand it by $10 trillion) will be easy for Trump to accomplish. No way he can do this and not win in 2020 the Rust Belt states that put him in the White House.

" What guarantees Trump's success is the doubling of Obama's pathetic trickle growth economy of 1.48% GDP to 3% "

And how will he do that ?

Tax cuts ?

More of the GW Bush agenda ?

We'll see...

He's already doing it by showing economic leadership: The soaring of consumer confidence, the new optimism of the business community, the Dow breaking 20,000, and the Feds raising interest rates twice since the election are all due to the TRUMP EFFECT: the promise or anticipation of radically changing the direction of our flat to failing, middle class destroying, highly regulated, declining economy.

How? By dismantling Obama's, stupid, oppressive, growth inhibiting regulatory state, implementing corporate and middle class tax reform, rebuilding the infrastructure, stopping the flow of job robbing, wage depressing illegal aliens (and deporting millions), and repatriating $trillions in hidden offshore corporate profits. Trump haters who think that Trump is failing are deluding themselves like they did for 16 months during the campaign. They're out of touch with reality living in an alternate universe of fear, anger, darkness and despair. As Michelle Obama said after the election: HOPE IS DEAD. and so it is for New Deal/Great Society Liberalism.

Yeah, people are excited about the Trump promises.

Except it looks like he can't delivery on more than 1/5 of them.

Continence looks more like 'hope", hope that is now in decline.

I don't see that Obama "regulations" hurt the economy much either. Higher standards for fuel efficiency in cars ? Less pollution ? These are not bad things and they promote investment and technological development and that means more jobs, not fewer.

The odds on a recession are going up and could increase with any sort of trade war. We'll see what happens

Trump is doing more for this country in his first 100 Days than Reagan did in his; and President Reagan, because of booming economic growth that started in the third year, was reelected in a 49 state sweep in 1984. Reaganomics and Maganomics are practically identical. Reagan's inspiration, by the way, for his SUPPLY-SIDE economic miracle was JFK .

When Obama left office his eight years of GDP averaged out to 1.48%

Moreover, Obama's sickly, pathetic trickle growth 1.48% GDP (the only U.S. president not to achieve 3% GDP growth in any one year) was the lowest of the last 11 presidents. And the costs of his failure have been staggering: he lost the House, Senate, Presidency, a Supreme Court pick, 14 governorships and 1000 state legislature seats. Not since Herbert Hoover has a president done more damage to his party.

Meh. Obama came into office in the midst of the worst Recession in eighty years. Economic growth has been slow, but recoveries usually last sixty months and this one has been over ninety.

Trump promised to fix everything but he doesn't have any real plans. At least none that he's shared.

Maybe Trump will cut taxes and raise spending. Good luck with that. In the end I expect he will widen the wealth gap and leave America weaker economically. Not trying to be a pessimist intentionally, but that just seems to be the direction.

 
Bureau of Economic Analysis chart showing that the V-shaped recovery from the Great Recession started in December 2008 before Obama took office.
 

When Obama took office the V-shaped GDP and manufacturing recoveries were well under way (beginning in December 2008); and this was followed in April by the V-shaped jobs recovery (before red one cent of stimulus money was spent). V-shaped recoveries are the beginning of the end for recessions. When the Great Recession ended in June 2009 it was still the Bush economy. If Bush had a third term, or McCain had been president, the recession would have ended when it did without the stimulus (a huge waste of money that stimulated the debt not the economy).

US Census Bureau chart showing that the V-shaped manufacturing recovery from the Great Recession started December 2008, before Obama took office

It takes at least a year for a new economic program to impact the economy. When Obama's stimulus took effect in February 2010 it completely bombed out. The recovery was so bad that Obama lost the House to Republicans in November 2010 (he called it a "shellacking"). Fearing a double dip recession Obama in December 2010 extended ALL of the Bush tax rates for two years. That went against his campaign promise (see) and was an admission that the stimulus was a failure.
 
Bureau of Labor Statistics chart showing that the V-shaped jobs recovery from the Great Recession started in April 2009 before a single dime of stimulus money was spent. 
 
 
 

BTW, under Obama the Wall Street bankster economy boomed (making the 1 percent rich vastly richer) while the Mainstreet economy languished. During Obama's eight years the crisis of the disappearing middle class worsened-which is why there were two simultaneous populist middle class revolts led by Donald Trump on the Right and Bernie Sanders on the Left. Trump and Sanders represented 76 million mostly white "forgotten" middle class Americans wanting a radical change from and reversal of Obama's miserably failed status quo policies - represented by Hillary, the  establishment Washington candidate, stupidly promising to stay the course and not connecting with the  forgotten folks.

 

 

No offense, but that is a lot of empty air.

"the stimulus was a waste of money"

Sure. We should have had more layoffs and more austerity. Punish the Middle Class and the Lower Classes.

Now Trump wants a stimulus package. Many of the Republicans who opposed Obama will oppose Trump as well.

"the extension of the Bush tax cuts for two years was an admission of failure"

Trump wants more tax cuts. I guess that's an admission of failure as well. He can't grow the economy except through larger deficits.

"The recovery was so bad that Obama lost the House in November 2010."

Yet he beat Romney who ran in 2012 on his business acumen. Your argument doesn't hold up. And I am not even auguring that people are "happy" with the recovery so your "proof" of what people think is pointless.

The Trump tax policies are basically the same type of policies that enriched the wealthy under Bush and Obama.\

Trump is basically giving us Bush's third term. Trickle down economics.

Basically, Congress stifled the economic recovery under Obama. Congress wouldn't or couldn't act and instead of fiscal policy the recovery was kept alive with monetary policy directed by the Fed.

Now Trump wants Congress to act. He will call for them to do the things he called for them to not do under Obama (such as raising the debt ceiling). It will be interesting to see the political hypocrisy.

It's kind of sad. Oh well.

Economic facts from the US government showing that Obama inherited an economy in a straight up V-shaped recovery (the beginning of the end of recessions) where his fiscal stimulus played no part is "a lot of hot air"?

 

A low growth, flat to failing recovery with an annual GDP (adjusted for inflation) of 1.49% (the lowest of the last 13 presidents if we include FDR's war years) is "a lot of hot air?

 

The fact that Obama was the ONLY president in US history never to achieve a GDP of 3% (adjusted for inflation) in any one year is "a lot of hot air?"

 

The worsening plight of the shrinking, collapsing ("FORGOTTEN") middle class under Obama (campaigned on by Trump, Sanders, Johnson and Stein) is "a lot of hot air?"

 

The massive populist anti-status quo revolt against continuing Obama's failed policies by over 80 million voters (Trump 63 million, Sanders 13 million, Johnson and Stein 4 million) is "a lot of hot air"?

 

Low Fed interest rates now at only 1% showing evidence of an anemic economy after eight years and trillions borrowed, spent and printed is "a lot of hot air"?

 

The massive political setbacks suffered by the Democrat party because of Obama's failed Keynesian/demand-side, hocus pocus, big gov't interventionist policies is "a lot of hot air"?

 

And now you laughably and ignorantly bring up the left-wing talking point about made up, phony, non-existent "trickle down economics"? You mean the policies that ended the Wilson Depression of the early 1920s? That prevented a sixth post-war recession in the mid-1960s? That ended the scourge of stagflation (stagnant growth with high inflation) in the 1980s? That saved socialist Sweden from Greece-like socialist collapse in the 1990s? And that prevented a recession after 9/11, but was overwhelmed by the housing/credit collapse (that started with Bill Clintion's reckless sub prime (BAD) loan revolution)?

Then you accuse the GOP Congress of "stifling" Obama's recovery? This is absurd! It was with Republican help in 2009 that the Democrat led Congress passed Obama's $825 billion fiscal stimulus bill, the largest in US and world history. And every last cent of it was spent. However, this type of Keynesian stimulus failed wherever and whenever it's been tried; it's failed for Hoover and FDR, the Brits, French, Germans, Italians, Argentinians and the Japanese for over 25 years. Every government that tried to spend its way out of economic distress has failed. Truth is, Obamanomics was predictably doomed from the start; it was another sad chapter of failure in the long history of Keynesianism - a terribly flawed economic theory that should be killed and buried for good.

 

 

                 The only one blowing hot air in this debate is you.

 

 

BTW, when JFK massively cut top marginal tax rates from 91% to 70% for the rich did he do it to make himself, his dad and family  wealthier? Or to "LIFT ALL BOATS" as he said and which he virtually did?

EARTH DAY 2017 MUST BE A DAY OF FASTING AND PRAYER TO SAVE PLANET EARTH FROM TRUMP, BIG OIL AND INDUSTRIAL CAPITALISM (SATIRE)

 
 
 
Michael Mann writes: " ......Trump should read the landmark “2020” report now published by Mission 2020, a group of experts convened by the former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate ChangeThe report establishes a timeline for how we can ensure a safe and stable climate. We don’t have much time — 2020 is a clear turning point."

CLIMATE CHANGE ACTIVISTS, ECO-WARRIORS AND FRIENDS OF THE EARTH 

According to eminent climate scientist Michael Mann, an activist leader for decades of the global warming movement, the climate doomsday clock is ticking away alarmingly fast and is in its 11th hour of deadly peril and disruption. Indeed, with the Earth catastrophically heating and the seas catastrophically rising, with droughts, floods, record heat and hurricane activity everywhere mounting, Mann warns that "we no longer need data, the scientific method, hypotheses and theories;" he warns "everyone can observe  disrupting, man-caused climate change with their eyes and senses;" he warns "we have until 2020 to save the planet from fossil fuels, CO2 and a run away greenhouse [heating] effect that's certain to come;" he warns that "four years from now it could be game over for the climate;" that we will reach the dreaded "tipping point of no return...where it might be impossible to stabilize planetary warming below dangerous levels.” In other words, according to Mann (and no one knows better than him) we're insanely breaking our climate system, smashing it to bits, with dirty fuels, CO2 and human stupidity and ignorance; and soon it could be so badly damaged and chaotically unstable as to be beyond repair. That is Mann's "tipping point of no return" in four years when global temps could soar out of control and overheat the warming earth in an explosive greenhouse gas catastrophe of extremely violent weather events multiplied a thousandfold. Recall the film "The Day After" and you'll get the frightening picture. 
 
                                   j
  
At the very least, within a few years of Mann's predicted tipping point we will suffer rainlessness like never before, global droughts (100 times worse than California's), massive crop destruction (where nothing can grow), famines of biblical proportions, disease from malnutrition and massive premature deaths in the billions - leading to an EXTINCTION EVENT where our race and all living things will perish and be no more. Take it from Mann. He's not to be questioned. HE KNOWS!
 
 
 
 
With the authority of a New Age prophet Mann warns that mankind has just four short years to radically reverse course and stop the madness before all hell breaks loose and all is lost; four years to stop the rising massive burning of climate disrupting coal, gas and oil; four years to begin the transition to a clean, green energy future; four years to save the Earth from Donald Trump, Big Oil, dirty industrial capitalism and suicidal human indifference and folly. 
 
 
 
In short, we're in the final, gut wrenching, nerve-wracking
 
COUNTDOWN TO CLIMATE ARMAGEDDON
 
and there doesn't seem to be a way to stop it short of a miracle.
 
 
 
TRUMP'S FIRST HUNDRED DAYS OF ASSAULTING OBAMA'S GREEN ENERGY LEGACY AND EARTH'S DETERIORATING CLIMATE SYSTEM
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Michael Mann's deathly fear of Donald Trump isn't delusional. Just look at the terrifying headlines above, and then at the horribly destructive things he's been doing as president, and SHUTTER.
 
   
Indeed, in less than 100 days Trump has practically undone and wiped out eight years of Barack Obama's EPA legacy and clean energy regime. He's trashed dozens of health and life saving climate and environmental regulations that could significantly cut CO2 emissions down to safe climate stabilizing levels putting mankind out of harm's way; he approved the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines despite their environmental hazards; he's defunded and killed the climate science division at NASA, cut funds for NOAA,  and he's doing much worse to the EPA which is under attack like never before in its history; and worse than bad Trump's on the verge of shredding the Paris climate accord to save planet earth signed by 200 nations. If Trump exits that agreement other nations could follow. In fact, there could be a stampede as only very few nations are abiding by the agreement for economic reasons. And nothing could please Trump more as it would enhance his image as a global leader against the science and politics of catastrophic climate change. What a terrible, awful man.
 
AMERICA THE FOSSIL FUEL HYPERPOWER
 
 
 
But that's only half of it. Trump is so extreme in his love of dirty energy and hatred of environmental sanity that America being a fossil fuel superpower (first in the production of natural gas, second behind China in coal, and third behind Russia and Saudi Arabia in oil) isn't enough for him. Trump the super nationalist wants this country to be FIRST in everything. He wants to "DIG BABY DIG" for more and more coal, and "DRILL BABY DRILL" for more gas and oil until this nation becomes NUMBER ONE in every dirty energy category; until, in effect, it becomes a fossil fuel HYPERPOWER driving down dirty energy costs so that clean, green renewables can't compete and will be priced out of the market-a plan from hell if there ever was one.
 
THE DILEMMA OF THE GLOBAL WARMING MOVEMENT
 
So what are we to do? I'll get to that soon. But first we must fully grasp the dilemma that we're in. The global warming movement has been struggling for decades to alter humanity's self-destructive climate course, but to no avail. For 20 years now we've done everything humanly possible (even lied, cheated and made up frightful things) to stop the madness and save the world from Big Oil, the Koch brothers, industrial capitalism and gas guzzling human beings-who grow in number with the economic progress of third world states. Sorry to say we have little to show for all that great effort, compassion and world citizenry; little to show for pleading with man to look at the signs of climate disruption and collapse, and wake up before it's too late.
 
MANKIND SETS RECORD FOR FOSSIL FUEL USE
 
 
                        
 
 
Indeed, despite thousands of scientific papers, UN conferences, protests, marches and media doomsday reports; despite a US president (Barack Obama) who was our man and had his priorities straight: giving preference to fighting global warming over global terror, poverty and AIDS; despite billions spent on cutting carbon pollution and using renewables (hydro, solar and wind); despite Kyoto and now the Paris accord; despite all this and more what do we see to our shock and awe? With each passing year mankind burns and consumes more fossil fuels than ever before setting new records for CO2 emissions with no end in sight. And people wonder why Michael Mann, James Hansen, Al Gore and others are freaking out. They love this world too much (the only one we have) to see it go to hell.
 
 
 
 
What then must we do when human governments, institutions and political movements fail? When mankind is unresponsive to science and reason and what's in its best interest? When the existential threat looms larger and draws closer by the day, week and year? In other words, what's left after everything humanly possible has been tried to save the Earth and humankind?
 
What's left is
 
GOD!
 
 .
 
 
THE NEED FOR GOD TO END THE CLIMATE CRISIS
 
God who "created the Heavens and Earth" and "gives us our daily bread," and the fossil fuels we use to power our world, is our last best hope when all else fails. When sinful man can't save himself GOD THE SAVIOR is there to work MIRACLES and do it for him.  And as we approach the dreaded tipping point of no return to CLIMATE ARMAGEDDON we need a MIRACLE FROM HEAVEN to save our race from the EXTINCTION ahead.
 
WITHOUT A MIRACLE WE'RE LOST IN HOPELESSNESS AND DESPAIR, AND DONALD TRUMP, BIG OIL AND INDUSTRIAL CAPITALISM WILL PREVAIL
 
 
 
This is what we must do my friends. We must turn EARTH DAY into a time of FASTING AND PRAYER. We must get down on our knees, turn to God and pray for deliverance and grace; pray for a MIRACLE to save planet Earth from the deniers, polluters and ignorant men. We must pray to God that he mercifully intervene in our dangerously warming world and hold down temperatures and the rising seas. This God can do directly (supernaturally) or naturally through the Sun which is the life of our planet and death when it's gone. All that God need do is tweak the Sun a bit and we'll be saved. Indeed, a slight variation in the Sun's heat and energy output could lower solar activity and cool it down just enough to prevent the cataclysmic greenhouse effect mentioned above. Moreover, the cooler Sun will cause the oceans to contract and sea levels fall sparing Miami, New York and other coastal cities from monster floods and storms.
 
                                   
 
Pope Francis "God's Vicar" could help us here. He's a holy man pure of heart and soul and much beloved by God and believes in our cause. He could intercede with God on behalf of the Earth and humanity and save us from catastrophe. Surely God will listen to such a man, and be moved by his compassion and prayers.
 
SO SPREAD THE WORD!
 
Let Earth Day be a day of Fasting and Prayer. At 12 PM  on April 22nd wherever you are, whatever you're doing stop and turn your thoughts to Heaven and beg God with tears for climate salvation. You have nothing to lose and could win God's grace; and reversing the course of this dirty fossil fuel age save the

For those atheists and Gaia devotees who don't believe in a supernatural Deity, on Earth Day you might consider using this ancient Greek hymn to the physical Sun. Beseech the Great Blazing One to take pity on us, and dial down his nuclear furnace just enough to save us from becoming a hell world like Venus.     




TO THE SUN

HEAR golden Titan, whose eternal eye
With broad survey, illumines all the sky.
Self-born, unwearied in diffusing light,
And to all eyes the mirror of delight:
Lord of the seasons, with thy fiery car 
And leaping coursers, beaming light from far:
With thy right hand the source of morning light,  
And with thy left the father of the night.
Agile and vig'rous, venerable Sun,
Fiery and bright around the heav'ns you run. 
Foe to the wicked, but the good man's guide,
O'er all his steps propitious you preside:
With various founding, golden lyre, 'tis mine
To fill the world with harmony divine.

CATASTROPHIC HELIOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING VS. CATASTROPHIC ANTHROPOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING: WHICH IS THE REAL APOCALYPSE?

 

Like all rational people and lovers of truth I reject the hypothesis of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW); the belief that drives NASA, NOAA, the IPPC and the great, so-called "settled authoritative science consensus" that human caused global warming from fossil fuels is an existential threat to our society and to future life on planet Earth. That the continued massive use of these cheap, reliable, efficient, wealth creating fuels will eventually make this world so devastatingly hot that no living thing will be able to live upon it. Truth is, however, this horrific, infernal, life ending global holocaust will inevitably happen over time; but it will be an ACT OF GOD AND NATURE having nothing to do with man's activities and energy behavior.
  
 
200 years of progressive industrial capitalism and billions of tons of human CO2 emissions has been more than enough time to test this man caused climate doomsday hypothesis; and what do we see? A modest, non-threatening increase in global temperatures compared to past global warm periods going back 3100 years: Medieval, Roman and Minoan (see); and the miracle of ANTHROPOGENIC GLOBAL GREENING: the vast, amazing, rapid greening of the planet due to the fertilizing effects of human CO2 emissions. Decades ago this CO2 induced greening was ridiculed as an impossible crackpot theory by "consensus scientists" who confidently predicted that the very opposite would be happening today: soaring, sizzling out of control temperatures, rainlessness, droughts, desertification and catastrophic crop destruction causing global famine, disease and the death of millions. And because the terrible future never arrived as authoritatively predicted, and now is pushed off to a later date (2030, 2050, 2100 take your pick) is it any wonder there's so much skepticism and doubt about CAGW? Repeated bad predictions a true science doesn't make.
 
 
If climate alarmists like Jim Hansen (back in the 1980s and early 90s) were right about the catastrophic warming impact of human CO2 emissions much of the earth by now would look like the picture on the left. But instead it's undergoing a huge, worldwide greening transformation as even NASA scientists grudgingly admit (see).

DISQUS DEBATE
 
 
"You reject CAGW? Like a child who doesn't want to hear that it's bedtime? Well it's not up to you.

 

Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities and are a very serious threat. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.
 
CO2 is not the only thing that can warm the Earth. In the distant past many things have proven they can become the main driver of temperature increases or decreases. But right now, the world body of climate scientists are quite certain, they say 'very likely' or 'extremely likely', which is 90-100% sure and 95-100% sure respectively that right now, and for the last 50 years CO2 took over as the main driver of temperature as was predicted long before that based on physics and simple calculations of how much CO2 we were producing and were expected to produce from burning fossil fuels."
 
 
Al Gore: 'Forget the other apocalyptic movements in history which proved     misguided and false. Put your faith and trust in me. I'm the real deal. The doomsday prophet mankind has been waiting for to lead you to the holy land of a   cooler, safer, climate stable, fossil fuel free world. Deny me and you get this: 
 
 
 
 
You blindly, uncritically and religiously put your TRUST AND FAITH in a prophetic "consensus?" of improbable future doom with the fundamentalist certainty of a Jehovah Witness, and judge me as childish and immature? Like an apocalyptic END TIME fanatic your mind is so obsessed with catastrophism (a mental illness) that in a delusional sense it's a clear and present danger to you as if the apocalypse were unfolding before our very eyes. Like events in Israel and elsewhere used by some as signs of the "Countdown to Armageddon" every extreme weather event for you warmunists becomes an ominous sign prophetically anticipating "Climageddon" (global doom), if sinning humanity doesn't repent and stop using fossil fuels: the dirty, foul, destructive energy from hell extracted by greedy, satanic, world-be-damned oil companies for power, gain and huge bonuses for oil execs./sarc
 
 
Big Oil is your Great Beast of the Apocalypse; your infernal 666 anti-Christ condemning the Earth to hell fire, destruction and ruin. And Barack Obama, Al Gore, Michael Mann, Jim Hansen and other holy crusading eco-alarmist leaders are your God sent saviors hijacking science in a messianic cause based on conjecture, speculation and faith. You warmunists want to destroy industrial capitalism (see), and spend $trillions trying to save a world that's not in peril; and you call me childish?
 
 
After mankind has survived countless horrific wars, threats of nuclear holocaust, devastating plagues, earthquakes, tsunamis and other terrible disasters (that's killed hundreds and millions) now we're warned by a mastermind climate "consensus" of Nostradamus's that CO2, a tiny amount of essential, life sustaining greenhouse gas (plant food that supports ecosystems and the biosphere) is dooming mankind to perdition? Dooming us to greater frequency of droughts, floods, plagues and extreme weather events culminating in a horrific final apocalyptic extinction (that'll happen who knows when?) if we continue to make this parts per million trace gas fractionally larger? This is intellectual idiocy! And you call me childish?
 

 

What is the catastrophic AGW movement? It's a mindless politically driven ideological war against CAPITALISM and FOSSIL FUELS  using fake dogmatic science, propaganda, fearmongering and lies about CO2's power over nature         and warming effects to end their massive use. 

That such minuscule amounts of CO2 can have such large effects on climate more powerful than the sun, oceans and volcanoes combined is preposterous and defies sound science and common sense: A tub of warm water can't be blackened with a few drops of ink; then made boiling hot with a cup or two of scalding water. But you warmunists stand the laws of nature on their head: for you if CO2 becomes slightly more than .04% of a complex atmosphere it's warming effect will be amplified a hundred thousand fold triggering a runaway greenhouse effect violently heating the earth, making it uninhabitable like hellish Venus-where CO2 is 96% of the atmosphere. And you call me childish?
 
 
 The burning surface of Venus. Only mad men and fools believe that an uptick in CO2 by hundreds or even thousands of parts per million can do this to our planet. In fact, there is no evidence of high levels of CO2 (up to 7000 ppm see) ever catastrophically overheating this world, and killing all of life. Not now, not ever.  
 
Fact is, John, I use much more of my brain in thinking about fossil fuels, CO2 and climate change than you do; which makes me the adult in this conversation.
 
 
 

"The difference between science and religion is the difference between repeatable tests which validate a theory and a belief in something through faith which is unproven or even unprovable, reinforced by dogma.

NASA, NOAA, and the IPCC are scientific organizations that use the scientific method to arrive at their conclusions. Your failure to accept those conclusions [CAGW] does not show that science has failed, but that your scientific education has failed. Unless you are a trained scientist, you are on the wrong side of the argument of any scientific consensus conclusion if you do not accept the scientific consensus position."

 

 

Given the inconvenient truth that Earth's climate is a big, complex, dynamic system of many moving, variable known and unknown parts that interact unpredictably in known and unknown ways how then can climate doomsday scientists be "90-100% sure" of their extinction predictions? How can predictions and projections of future time be the equivalent of empirical observations? To treat  the catastrophic future and the present here and now as the same, which many climate scientists and activists do by saying there's a "clear and present danger" of disaster, is absurd and unscientific!

 

 

What repeated tests can climatologists run to validate a theory of man caused global disaster from CO2? It can't be done. Detonate all our nukes and millions will die; but the human race will still survive (nuclear winter and all). And to raise the threat of CO2 to a level passing DEFCON 1 is insane. But that's what you lunatics do.

 

 

Indeed, how can climate scientists make accurate, long term predictions when there are too many variables and climate unknowns? When they have no way of knowing if human CO2 emissions can substantially heat the earth, or by how much and what degree? Climatology itself is a long, long ways from being a "settled science" Currently it's a  hodge podge potpourri of conjecture, speculation and hypothesis; it doesn't rise to the level of a true settled science repeatedly making valid predictions like physics, chemistry, astronomy and meteorology.

 The 18 yr 8 month global cooling trend (the so-called "pause") interrupted by a powerful warming El Nino. Now that El Nino has ended will the cooling trend resume despite 400 plus ppm of CO2 in the air? I'm betting it will.

Heck, "the consensus" which predicted a 21st century of soaring temperatures in the short and long run couldn't foresee the so-called " hiatus" or "pause" a few years down the road; this is when there was statistically no warming for just under 19 years until El Nino heated up the planet again. If "the consensus" was taken by surprise in their short-term predictions (on temperature, catastrophes, global greening, etc) think how much more difficult or impossible it is to make accurate predictions for the long tomorrow where so many surprises and outcomes are possible?

 

 

To put it another way, due to our very limited knowledge and understanding of El Ninos and La Ninas, ocean oscillations, ocean currents, volcanoes, natural cooling aerosols, tilt of the Earth's access, plate tectonics, water vapor, methane, clouds, forest and grasslands, wind, sun spots, Milankovich and water cycles etc. how can accurate predictions and projections be made on the "disastrous warming effects" of human CO2, when it is just one factor in a big, complex, constantly changing system of rearranging combinations (see)? 

 

 
Global cyclone energy is in decline despite global warming. How is that possible (see)?
 
 

Indeed, catastrophic AGW is an uncertain, subjective, pessimistic vision of things to come; a mental illness afflicting people in love with catastrophism, convinced without evidence that man is destroying himself with fossil fuels and CO2; and to believe with absolute, doubt free certainty that a future "extinction event" is INEVITABLE because of rising, human caused CO2 levels (whose buildup in the atmosphere isn't stopping), isn't rational, real, fact based science. It's an emotion driven ARTICLE OF FAITH; an INFALLIBLE ORTHODOX DOGMA akin to religious belief, and hysterical crackpot END TIME theologies-which at best have symbolic meaning for the real apocalypse to come.  

 

 

Those who dogmatically promote this vision of future CO2 caused doom are either liars, charlatans and frauds mindlessly at war with fossil fuels and industrial civilization (which unstoppably grows and thrives lifting millions out of poverty); or they're useful gullible idiots and fools; poor souls needing a great global purpose and messianic cause to give their lives some grand, morally elevating significance and meaning; and what could be grander than saving collective humanity and planet Earth from destruction (though neither are in peril from human causes)?

W440_zonef.jpg (67794 bytes)

The scientific evidence from reconstructing Earth's climate going back millions of years is overwhelming and conclusive (see): there is absolutely no correlation between high levels of atmospheric CO2 and global temperatures. The above chart shows that around 445 million years ago (the Upper or Late Ordovician Period) the CO2 count in the atmosphere was 4000 plus ppm (10-12 times what it is today), and the Earth was in a period of frigid ice age glaciation with average global temps at 10 degrees C (50 degrees F); in other words, it wasn't scorching, blistering, life destroying hot as we are told will happen in future time by the all wise, all knowing, "settled science consensus" if the atmospheric ppm count goes to just 450-500 or more.

And contrariwise, climate reconstructions for the Middle Ages when the CO2 count was at 280 ppm (120 ppm or 40% lower than today) show warmer global temperatures by 1 to 2 degrees C than today (see). In fact, California, which just ended five years of drought, experienced two devastating megadroughts during the Middle Ages of 240 and 180 years each - with sweltering local temperatures higher by 3 degrees F than today (see and see). How was that possible with way less heat trapping CO2 in the atmosphere?

 

 

   In short, despite the billions of tons of CO2 industrial man has emitted since the late 18th century there's nothing unusual, abnormal or anomalous about modern global warming when compared to its medieval counterpart - or even going back two or three thousand years to Roman and Minoan times. In other words, what caused the higher temperatures and worst droughts in medieval California was a greater and more extreme threat to human society and the world than anthropogenic CO2, as temperatures now are milder. But if not CO2 then what was the cause of the higher preindustrial age temperatures?

 

  

 

 Putting the question another way, if 444 million years ago a super high CO2 count coexisted with frigid global temperatures, and during the Minoan, Roman and  Middle Ages (see, see and see) a lower CO2 count than today coexisted with warmer global temps then what was it that caused these extreme differences? The answer is provided I believe by Nir Shaviv a distinguished professor of astrophysics and climatology at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

 

 

Building on the work of other scientists going back to 18th century astronomer William Hershel Prof. Shaviv discovered that SOLAR ACTIVITY (variations in the sun's heat and energy output) and COSMIC RAYS (the presence or absence of its high energy radiation ionizing or not ionizing the atmosphere) are the two major forces driving climate change; this is proved by the correlation of both forces (as shown by the good professor in the video below) with cycles of global warming, cooling and sea level changes throughout Earth's geologic history. 

 

Moreover, as Prof. Shaviv points out, both natural forces (SA and CR) are unscientifically excluded or minimized from IPCC and other mainstream warmunist science climate models. Why the omission? Because when added they forecast a modest, unfrightening, noncataclysmic rise in global temps of 1 degree C or less over the next 100 years. IPCC claims that a 2 degree rise could be dangerous; and that if man doesn't drastically cut CO2 emissions, temperatures over the next 100 years could increase 1.5 to 4.5 degrees C. In other words, more precise, honest scientific climate modeling is useless for the purpose of alarming people; it undermines long term doomsday CAGW predictions exposing them as fraudulent, fake science akin to the end time dogmatic religious movements.

 

This chart shows a correlation of sunspot numbers to the rise and fall of global temperatures. 

Skeptics, deniers and doubters opposing the refuted, deceptive CAGW hypothesis speak TRUTH TO POWER (and are branded criminal sinners and infidels): Earth's climate is measurably changing for the better as it grows moderately warmer, greener and more fruitful; and 200 years of industrial, technological and economic PROGRESS continue to make Earth a better place for humankind. And in the meantime human genius and ingenuity are developing the means to move us off this planet and into deep space to populate distant worlds out of existential necessity. It's no accident we're in the SPACE AGE. For one day the blazing nuclear furnace at the center of our planetary system called the SUN will unleash all hell upon this Earth wiping out human, animal and plant life in a devastating holocaust.

CATASTROPHIC HELIOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING

VS.

CATASTROPHIC ANTHROPOGENIC GLOBAL WARMING

 

The Red Giant: the Sun turned into a death star.

And that brings me to the title of this blog. In truth, the only valid, provable science of catastrophic, cataclysmic world dooming global warming is HELIOGENIC (Sun caused) not ANTHROPOGENIC (man caused). Astrophysicists like Nir Shaviv tell us that the power of the Sun over Earth's climate is such that a sudden, slight variation in its heat and energy output could heat or freeze this world in devastating ways. And what is certain from the observation of greatly aged stars across the universe is that when the Sun enters its dying phase it will collapse into a RED GIANT, expand its scorching radius by 200x and turn the Earth's surface into a desolate burning hell world like lifeless, scorched, blistering Venus.

The life and death of this world is in the hands of the central, sovereign, violently hot, infernal SUN, not mankind. And because man's existence on this planet is limited by the Sun's life and death cycle this is the God's honest truth:

SPACE IS DESTINY

IT MUST BE CONQUERED

ON IT DEPENDS OUR SURVIVAL

THE SUN IS A MORTAL STAR

THE EARTH A PERISHABLE SPHERE

AND MAN A TEMPORARY EARTHLING

THE RESUMPTION OF THE PAUSE?

 

Earlier this evening our friend X-Man posted the following comment: "Apollo, you were right!  The "PAUSE" is alive and well and continuing. The satellite data is in: the surface global cooling trend that started in the late 1990s and was interrupted by El Nino has resumed."

Yep. The post-El Nino global climate is looking good for climate realists and their war against CAGW.

IS DONALD TRUMP PLANNING THE DESTRUCTION OF IRAN’S AND NORTH KOREA’S NUCLEAR FACILITIES?

 
 
 
 
 
 
 If Obama flopped so badly with Assad in disarming him of WMDs then think how badly he must have failed with Assad's lying, cheating ally jihadist terrorist Iran in stopping it from building nukes.
 
 
In 2007 radical terrorist Islamic Iran, and "Axis of Evil" ally Stalinist North Korea, criminally colluded with mass murderer Bashar Assad in secretly building a nuclear weapons plant near Deir ez-Zor, Syria. Reports say that the reason for the project was not only to turn Syria into a nuclear power but to serve as a back up plutonium factory for Iran in case their plant at Arak was destroyed in a U.S. or Israeli raid. So in early September 2007 Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, having gathered evidence that the project was a nuclear weapons plant, launched "Operation Orchard" and ordered Israeli warplanes to destroy it in a sneak air attack - which they did as seen in the photos below.
 
 
 Syrian nuke facility before and after Israeli strike.
 
 
 
 
The question now is this: just as Iranian and North Korean neclear scientists and techs criminally colluded in building a nuke plant for Assad are they developing in North Korea nuclear weapons to fit on ICBMs that could reach our shores? Given the advances that the cheating, "Death to America" expansionist Iranians have made in building powerful rockets that they've used to launch satellites    into space, and given reports that they're working with the Norks in developing rocket boosters and the technology for ICBMs, only a fool would deny that they're not crossing red lines every day and (violating their agreement with our country) jointly building nukes. Indeed, it stands to reason that if Iran was serious about giving up its nuclear ambitions (which Obama and Kerry swore they did) they would have demonstrated it by severing their decades long ties with the Norks. But that tie, it seems, is now stronger than ever.
 
 
If Iran were serious about giving up its nuclear ambitions it would have severed its ties with nuclear North Korea.
 
But fortunately, America now has a leader who is not a naive, appeasing, lead from behind weakling like his predecessor with Iran and Syria, and Bill Clinton with North Korea; an intrepid man of decisive action and great will power Donald Trump  as he proved this week won't tolerate Iran violating the spirit if not the letter of its nuclear deal with us and building nuclear armed ICBMs with the Norks.
 
 
If Iran doesn't own a portion of North Korea's growing stockpile of nuclear bombs it can, if it desires, purchase them off the shelf whenever it wants.
 
Indeed, is Donald Trump who was born during the presidency of Harry Truman (the man who ended World War II by nuking fascist, terrorist, imperial Japan and went to war with North Korea to contain communist expansion) planning to follow Israel's example with Saddam and Assad and wipe out North Korea's and Iran's nuclear facilities? Could it be that President Trump and his Pentagon chiefs are working on a dual Operation Orchard for these two menacing rogue states who are hell-bent on becoming great nuclear powers and threatening Israel, South Korea and the United States?
 
 
 Indeed, was the attack launched by Trump on Bashar Assad's airfield in response to his violation on the use of WMD prelude to what he has in store for the mullahs and Norks if they don't fully and completely denuclearize (and that means no spinning centrifuges)? I believe so. It was a warning not just to Assad but to Khameine and Kim Jong-un.
 
 
As the U.S has shown both countries tremendous good will, bending over backwards to normalize them (showering them with food, fuel, technology and funds) and bring them into the community of nations, they have persisted in defying us and becoming nuclear armed states; and there's no alternative left but military force to disarm them; and Donald Trump has the balls to do it.

DEBATE ON THE POLITICAL IMPACT OF OBAMANOMICS, OBAMA’S REAL GDP AND UNEMPLOYMENT RATES, AND THE GREAT DEPRESSION

 

Watch Fox Host Get Ridiculed For His Attempt To Give Trump Credit For The Obama Economy · Media Matters 

 

 

DISQUS-MEDIA MATTERS DEBATE  

QUESTION FOR TRUMP-HATING OBAMUNISTS

 

WHAT HAS BEEN THE POLITICAL IMPACT

of Obamanomics (giving us the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression) with an annual GDP rate (adjusted for inflation) of  just under 1.50% (the lowest of the last 13 presidents) and an actual, real unemployment rate of about 10%?

ANSWER:

Loss of the House, Senate, Presidency, the next Supreme Court pick, 14 governorships and 1000 seats in state legislatures. We also saw the rise of an angry, hurting, disappearing middle class in two anti-establishment populist mass movements: Bernie Sanders on the Left (13 millions voters); and Donald Trump on the Right (63 million voters). Truly, Obama's economic legacy is one of ashes, disaster and dust.

 
 
 

Joe Eshleman  ApolloSpeaks 

You cannot make apples to oranges comparisons. The UE rate is figured the same way for every president. Right wingers use U3 unemployment when a Repub is president and U5 or U6 numbers when a Dem is president, and if you like growth then Jimmy Carter was your best president. AND inflation has been incredibly low in the last eight or so years which may explain the low growth rate.

ApolloSpeaks   Joe Eshleman

 

Before 1994 the Bureau of Labor Statistics had no U-6 category. So called "discouraged workers" or "the long-term unemployed" were included in the official U-3 rate. That means that a 5% unemployment rate for, let us say, a Jimmy Carter was not the same as a 5% rate for Obama. In fact, the Carter rate of 5% is truer to economic reality than the Obama 5% rate. The change that was adopted under President Clinton in 1994 (wouldn't you know it) was designed for political reasons to make the UE rate look better than it is. It's called smoke and mirrors statistical trickery.

 

http://portalseven.com/employment/unemployment_rate_u6.jsp

 

Moreover, Bernie Sanders, completely rejecting the changes made in 1994, has always, consistently (and throughout his career and recent campaign) cited the U-6 rate as the true, reality based UE rate vs. the bull sh*t U-3.

 

 
 
Furthermore, the Obama GDP rates that you linked aren't adjusted for inflation, and are not the official rates. When adjusted for inflation Obama's annual rate is a pathetic, weak 1.48% the lowest (as I said above) of the last 13 presidents.
 
 
 
 
9 out of last 10 recessions came under Repub Presidents since Ike's first in the 1950s, Apollo ; and Carter's was the smallest as the only dem recession. As highest income tax bracket went down from 90 percent in the 1950s to lowest in the high 20 percent in the Reagan years the national deficits, debts and debt ceiling increased and  exponentially. Simple proof the GOP main goals messed up the economy and US Treasury maybe permanently.
 
 
 

The worst and longest economic crisis in US history, the Great Depression, was started by a liberal, progressive, Teddy Roosevelt Republican named Herbert Hoover. And doubling down on Hoover's failed policies was Teddy Roosevelt's cousin Franklin who prolonged the crisis until the great war.

Andrew Mellon

 

Gee such a consistent track record, only Ike left a good economy and world it seems, and he was more dem than con/repub.

 

 
Ike had three recessions during his presidency (and Truman one). And to prevent a fifth post-war recession JFK very wisely reached back 40 years to Warren Harding's Treasury Sec, the brilliant Andrew Mellon (father of supply-side economics and architect of the Roaring Twenties) and did this:

 

 
  Today this is MAGANOMICS.
 

 

 

The great depression was actually started by the rabid conservative policies of Harding, like deregulation for example, kept by Coolidge and finished by Hoover. FDR over turned almost all of them and the rebuild and recovery was actually well on its way before World War II (The Great War is WWI, so you know). Weird how you skip all those conservatives between Teddy and Hoover. Weird! Also, Teddy was a progressive, but, he was a conservative progressive, back when conservative actually meant conserve.

 

   

Harding inherited a post-war depression from Wilson. He fixed it and unleashed the Roaring Twenties by slashing taxes, spending and regulations. If progressives Hoover and FDR had run in 1920 as the Dems Pres and VP candidates (as Wilson wanted) and won, they would have turned the depression into a prolonged 1920s disaster just like they did in the 1930s. They were really that economically illiterate and dumb. BTW, WWII like WWI was a great power war, and therefore a "great war."

FOR YOUR EDUCATION

 
 

It's fun rewriting history to suit your contemporary biases, isn't it?

 
 

Hoover's great humanitarian miracle of feeding the hungry of Europe after the war made him the most famous and popular progressive of the time; and best suited to beat the Republicans as Wilson's successor. That's real history. Not revisionism. He wisely joined the Republicans because Wilson was unpopular, the economy was in distress and Americans wanted change.

 

And when voters elected Donald Trump they wanted change from this:

DEBATE ON TRUMP AND THE PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD, THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION AND WEALTH AND POVERTY

 

 
 
 
Disqus Debate
 
 
 
 
It took decades, and the strong leadership of President Obama, to finally craft a global agreement involving most of the world's nations that would begin to reverse the catastrophic damage to the planet's ecosystems initiated by the industrial revolution.
 
Now, with a stroke of the pen, the man-child Trump has reversed human progress for a century or more, perhaps resulting in the extinction of the human race.
 
If that's not "success" for the Narcissist-in-Chief, I don't know what is.
 
 
 
 
As James Hansen said the agreement is a complete fraud. It's no more effective than Kyoto in stopping the massive growing use of fossil fuels.
 
 
 
Only a dedicated climate denial propagandist could so thoroughly distort Hansen's concerns.
 
Hanson is fully in agreement with the goals of the Paris Climate Accord, but wants more "teeth" put into it through a carbon tax.
The problem Hansen raised with an agreement, that was an extraordinary achievement among the Earth's nations, is that the voluntary promises can be easily ignored or reversed by a demagogue like Trump.
 
He was correct.
 
 
 
 
Given the fact the fossil fuels are the cheapest, most efficient, reliable and wealth creating form of energy known to man (lifting millions out of extreme poverty in third world states) it's not surprising that the PCA is a complete flop like Kyoto. Or haven't you noticed that fossil fuel consumption continues to rise along with atmospheric CO2 enrichment? A frightening 2 ppm per year. Jesus save us. LOL!!!
 
 
 
 
Given the fact that you are a shill for the fossil fuel industry, and nothing you claim is true, you have zero credibility on this issue. Go crawl back under your lump of coal.
 
P.S. All life on earth, including homo sapiens, evolved and flourished for 3.7 billion years with ONLY solar energy.
 
P.P.S. The oil geologist, Francois de Chardenedes calculated the amount of energy that it took nature to photosynthetically process solar radiation into the hydrocarbon molecules that comprise all the vegetation and algae, with all the cosmic energy processing (as rain, wind and gravitational pressure) and processing time (paid for at the rates we pay for household electricity), to turn it into petroleum – and determined that it costs nature (or, rather, would cost us) well over a million dollars to produce each gallon of petroleum.
 
That makes petroleum (and by analogy, all fossil fuels) the most expensive, least efficient and most problematic source of energy available to humankind – by orders of magnitude. And makes the extraction and exploitation of fossil fuels the most moronic decision humankind has ever made. 
 
 
 
 
 
Before the Industrial Capitalist Revolution powered by fossil fuels poverty was the norm for humanity with about 98% living in abject   squalor. Today that's down to 17%. The progress that's been made in 200 years elevating and civilizing man and giving him education, productive work, wealth and the freedom to succeed  has been astounding.
 
Today the poorest Americans live richer, healthier, longer lives than the kings, queens and aristocrats of pre-industrial times; if it weren't for the invention of the internal combustion engine none of this astonishing progress would have happened.
 
BTW, this laughable crackpot thinker, Francois de Chardenede, what is his alternative to the invention of the combustion engine and fossil fuel powered Industrial Capitalism for lifting billions of human beings out of poverty over the centuries? If his theory was valid humanity world never have made such astounding socio-economic progress . Industrial Capitalism would always be operating at a great loss progressively impoverishing, not enriching mankind. 
 
 
 
 
You're also a willfully ignorant shill for industrial capitalism, which has done more harm than any previous social or economic institution.
 
Abject poverty was a creation of industrialism (see Henry George's Progress and Poverty), as was environmental destruction, leading now to the Sixth Great Extinction of species and Global Climate Disruption with half of all species on the verge of extinction, including the human race.
 
Today, 40% of the human population lives in abject poverty with less than $2 per day - nearly 80% on less than $10 per day.
Any more propaganda and lies to share?
 
 
 
 
Mankind's natural state is poverty. Primitive, savage, naked man in the wilds of nature (living a short, mean, brutal life) began with nothing.
 
Mankind today is thriving and the world is growing greener and more fruitful thanks to the burning of fossil fuels-and anthropogenic CO2 and its global fertilizing effects on plants, trees and crops.
BTW, according to hundreds of peer review studies during the Roman and Medieval Warm Periods the world was warmer than it is today, and humanity survived with little trouble (see); and we'll do so again until the next little ice age or major cooling period.
 
 
 
Our beautiful, wonderful, greening, fruitful Earth grudgingly acknowledged by NASA scientists who predicted the very opposite. Will Al Gore mention this unforeseen development in his upcoming climate horror film?
 
 
You raise willful idiocy to a high art.
 
The Original Affluent Society
 
Imagine a society in which the work week seldom exceeds 19 hours, material wealth is considered a burden, and no one is much richer than anyone else. The trespasser is unknown, there are no clear-cut property lines, merely undefined boundaries that stand open to visitors – who are welcomed with refreshment. Unemployment is high there, sometimes reaching 40% – not because the society is shiftless, but because it believes that only the able-bodied should work, and then no more than necessary. Food is abundant and easily gathered. The people are comfortable, peaceable, happy and secure.
This elysian community actually exists. Its habitat is Africa's Kalahari Desert, a region so harsh and inhospitable that Western man would be hard put to eke out a living. But in that unforgiving neighborhood, the Bushmen, a golden-skinned, short-statured and cheerful people, have been living contentedly for thousands of years as hunter-gatherers subsisting on what nature provides without resort to agriculture.
 
Anthropologists Irven DeVore and Richard B. Lee note that "cultural Man has been on earth for some 2,000,000 years. For over 99% of this period he has lived as a hunter-gatherer. To date, the hunting way of life has been the most successful and persistent adaptation man has ever achieved."
 
"It is still an open question whether man will be able to survive the exceedingly complex and unstable ecological conditions he has created for himself," write Lee and DeVore. "If he fails in this task, interplanetary archaeologists of the future will classify our planet as one in which a very long and stable period of small-scale hunting and gathering was followed by an apparently instantaneous efflorescence of technology and society leading rapidly to extinction."
 
Which would you rather be: a savage living in a state of nature? Or a poor man living in an advanced industrial society?
 
 
"We have stricken the shackles from 4,000,000 human beings and brought all labourers to a common level, but not so much by the elevation of former slaves as by reducing the whole working population, white and black, to a condition of serfdom. While boasting of our noble deeds, we are careful to conceal the ugly fact that by our iniquitous money system we have manipulated a system of oppression which, though more refined, is no less cruel than the old system of chattel slavery." - Horace Greeley (1811-1872), editor of the New York Tribune, the most-read newspaper in America
 
 
Which would you rather be? A black slave living in a rich, modern, 19th century industrial society? Or the black slave of a black master living in primitive, pre-industrial, pre-modern tribal Africa?

DONALD TRUMP, CALIFORNIA’S DYING DROUGHT AND THE END OF CATASTROPHIC MAN CAUSED GLOBAL WARMING

 

 
 
  
 

Rainstorms Wash Away Drought in More than 90 Percent of California | NBC Bay Area

 

A map by the US Drought Monitor showing California drought conditions from Oct. 26, 2016 to Jan. 25, 2017.
 
A recent huge, major blow to the eroding credibility of ideology driven doomsday warmunists (the "settled science global warming  consensus") was the unforeseen end (defying their Nostra-doom-us computer climate models) of what was forecast to be California's "endless, permanent, ever worsening, disastrous drought." From Barack Obama on down what has now turned out to be a short-lived five-year drought (one of many such events over California's 166 years as a state) was ominously pointed to as conclusive, indisputable, settled scientific proof of catastrophic, world dooming anthropogenic global warming (CAGW)-with worse, much worse to come for the great Southwest and the United States.
 
 
In 2014 former NASA scientist and climate activist James Hansen (who'd been laughably warning for decades of worsening global heat waves and droughts amidst vast global greening due to rising, beneficial CO2 levels) said, “Increasingly intense droughts in California, all of the Southwest, and even into the Midwest have everything to do with human-made climate change.” Other climate alarmists hysterically warned, "California is now in the DEATH-GRIP of a brutal,  record breaking drought....." "The [entire] U.S. may NEVER AGAIN return to the relatively wet conditions experienced from 1977 to 1999.” “In the Southwest the [computer climate] models project a PERMANENT DRYING by the mid-21st century that will reach the levels of aridity not seen before in historical droughts...." And on and on went the fake science trickery, bad predictions and lies.
 
 
We were authoritatively told that the burning of fossil fuels, heat trapping CO2 emissions and increased warming of the atmosphere was either the primary cause or an aggravating factor of rainlessness, aridity, drought and (referring to the US droughts of the 1930s) dust-bowlification in California. For warminists like Hansen, Obama and Gore the so-called "record breaking" California drought was emblematic of what stupid, blind, ignorant, self-destructive, fossil fuel burning mankind was doing to planet earth, and ultimately to itself. That if man stayed the "perilous course" of oil, coal and gas-powered industrial capitalism (that's lifting millions out of extreme poverty in third world states) he would dangerously Californiaize the planet; that eventually arid, rainless, dry conditions would engulf the world causing global crop failure, famine, malnutrition, starvation, disease and massive death; Hansen and others predicted this holocaust was historically inevitable and was our horrific future if mankind didn't dramatically reign in and reverse his use of carbon emitting fuels. "Deindustrialize or Die" is their message of salvation to mankind-while proposing economic schemes of taxing carbon and hiking fossil fuel prices that are hyper inflationary, ruinous and politically impossible.
 
 
And then came the rains (as they did after the last two less severe five year droughts ending in the 30s and 90s) to dampen down the dumb hysteria and flush the climate lies down the drain. But even before the rains fell the big lie was that the drought was the worst in California's history; that its soil had never been so parched, dry and desert like; while this may have been true for California in its 166 years as a state (some dispute this see), it wasn't true, as the lying, deceptive, mendacious warmunists knew, for the last 1166 years.
 
 
MEDIEVAL CALIFORNIA MEGA DROUGHTS 
 
Scientists tell us that beginning in the year 850 and ending in 1320 California and the Southwest US experienced two pre-industrial era MEGA-DROUGHTS separated by 50 years: a 240 year drought from 850-1190; and a 180 year drought from 1140 to 1320 (see). 
 
 
These two mega-droughts occurred during what scientists call
the Medieval Warm Period (WPM); this was one of three world-wide interglacial warming epochs including our own (the first being the Roman Warm Period 250 BC-450 AD) which occurred over the last 2300 years when global temperatures have been proven to be warmer than they are today; this has been shown in hundreds of peer-reviewed studies ignored by the "CAGW concensus" as it makes nonsense of their unscientific war on fossil fuels, CO2 and "dirty" industrialization (see).
 
HOTTER TEMPS IN MEDIEVAL CALIFORNIA
 
Indeed, one such study (and this didn't surprise me) shows that coincident with its two long, devastating medieval droughts California's temperature was 3.0 C higher than it is today - and with significantly less atmospheric CO2 ( 270 ppm vs. 400ppm today       see). You can't have clearer proof showing the lack of any correlation between CO2 and intense global warming which is at the crux of CAGW theory. You can't have clearer proof on how badly warmunists exaggerate and distort the heat trapping and warming capabilities of CO2 - and falsely claim we are living in the hottest, most perilous period in human history. If their theories were correct temperatures would be catastrophically soaring, seas destructively acidifying, and millions dying from extreme heat, crop destruction and famine. But none of this is happening.
 
 
It is ironic that several days after climate realist Donald Trump's historic inauguration, and his promise of turning America into a fossil fuel superpower to make our economy great again, the terrible drought in California (defying unrealistic warmunist predictions) was declared at an end. As human activities had nothing to do with the drought there was nothing man could do to end it; and as global warming is the work of nature no policy of Trump's can effect it for better or worse. The media is now demonizing Trump as the greatest single contemporary threat (worse than Islamic terrorism)     to this planet and civilization. But this is the desperate cries of a dying order. It's the fanatical warmunist elite Trump is threatening and their pseudo-scientific messianic movement to save a world that's thriving, and not in peril or dying; and will thrive even more from the powerful, indefatigable, America first  presidency of Donald J. Trump.

JFK’S FIRST 100 DAYS VS. DONALD TRUMP’S, TRUMP/JFK PARALLELS AND TRUMP’S WEALTHY PREDECESSORS

 

After talking with Trump, Bill Gates likens president-elect to JFK - CNBC.com

 
 

WHICH IS WORSE?

I REPEAT FROM FRIDAY

President Kennedy's Bay of Pigs fiasco (in his first 100 days), with its 118 dead anti-Castro commandos, 360 wounded, and 1200 captured prisoners? Or President Trump's temporary setback in repealing and replacing "CRAZY (Bill Clinton)," "MISTAKEN (Chuck Schumer)," "TRAINWRECK (Max Baucus)" imploding Obamacare?

Indeed, if nothing worse happens to our 45th President in the next 45 days he will have a more successful first 100 days than did JFK. Moreover, if in the next 45 days Trump and the GOP implement JFK type, across the board, supply-side tax cuts on individuals and corporations (that sent the 60's economy soaring) GDP growth will easily more than double in the years ahead adding $10 trillion to our flat to failing economy; and that will win Trump a second term, just as JFK would have won had he lived.

TRUMP/JFK PARALLELS AND COINCIDENCES

 Bill Gates, Chris Matthews (in a sober moment) and others have likened Donald Trump to JFK; and they were right in doing so as you shall see from the following  parallels, analogies and coincidences:  

1.Trump like JFK was born into great wealth and privilege.

2. Both are Geminis.

3. Both came from the northeastern United States.

4. Both have glamorous, classy, intelligent wives.

5. In 1946, the year Trump was born, JFK started his political career running for and winning a seat in the House of Representatives.

6. On November 5, 1946 when JFK won his House seat Donald Trump, the future 45th President, was 145 days old (see)*.

7. 45 is a multiple of 15 3x. On the day Donald Trump was born JFK was 1515 weeks old. 1515 is a factor of the number 4545 3x (see)*.

8. Trump was elected president in a tight race on the 56th anniversary of JFK's close victory over Richard Nixon (11-08-1960)*.

9. 20455 days separate both elections-a five digit number encoded with the number 45 (see)*.

10. JFK's and Trump's president numbers (35 and 45) end in the number 5. 

11. Both men succeeded popular two term presidents of the  opposing party.

12. Both became president when their respective parties controlled both houses of congress.

13. Both believe in the efficacy of creative tax cuts to stimulate robust economic growth.

14. Both are pro-military, peace through strength, patriotic nationalists.

15. Both came into office having trouble with an aggressive, imperialist, hostile Russia.  

*NOTE

For those of my readers who believe in God, and that America is a special nation under His Providential guidance, I ask you this: is it possible that JFK's close victory over Richard Nixon on a November 8th election date prophetically anticipated that the 45 president would also win in a close race on that same date, and like JFK not be of the incumbent party?

There are many signs that I discovered showing that the President is a Providential Man. Could this also be one of them?

DONALD TRUMP AND HIS WEALTHY, PRIVILEGED PREDECESSORS

 

 

As Trump haters mock and ridicule the President for his good fortune of being born into privilege and wealth it is fascinating to note that he is the fifth consecutive president elected on November 8 that was born this way. These other fortunate presidents were as follows: GHW Bush (Nov. 8, 1989), John F. Kennedy (Nov. 8, 1960), Franklin Roosevelt (Nov. 8, 1932), and Teddy Roosevelt (Nov. 8, 1904). Three of the five, Trump and the two Roosevelts, were born in New York; and the remaining two, Bush and Kennedy, were born in Massachusetts. All five hail from the great northeast; and the first four (anticipating Trump I believe) were successful presidents*.  

*George H. W. Bush was one of the most successful one term presidents in US history.

BTW, in 1892, before Teddy Roosevelt's election, Grover Cleveland was elected on Nov. 8. Though not born into wealth Cleveland was a New Jersey born resident of New York at the time of his election.

As for President Trump (who was led astray by Paul Ryan) it's just a temporary setback on the way to repeal and replace "CRAZY (Bill Clinton)," MISTAKEN (Chuck Schumer)" "TRAINWRECK (Max Baucus)" Obamacare.
 
The celebration of Democrats over the Trump/Ryan failure is laughable. House and Senate Republicans one and all (and most rank and file party members) are united on ends and divided on means. They are hell-bent and unified on wanting to repeal and replace collapsing, imploding, impoverishing, class warfare  Obamacare, but differ on how to do it. When they resolve their differences, which I'm confident they will do soon, Obamacare will join Romneycare, Hillarycare and Single Payer (Bernie Sanders)
    Vermontcare on the ash heap of history.
 
 
 
See my prediction of Obamacare's inevitable repeal and demise based on the 18th century repeal of the Stamp Act. This ancient sign of liberty from unfair taxation and oppression shows that Obamacare was doomed from the start and doesn't have a future.

Strange because less than five short months ago in the 11th hour of a tightening presidential race (11 days before the election) Comey delt an unexpected blow (a late "October surprise") to their sure to win darling candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton: Comey (without conferring with Obama's pro-Clinton "tarmac" Justice Department) sent a letter informing Congress that the FBI is reopening its investigation into Hillary's email server. That Comey should now be lauded as a hero by anti-Trumpers after being viciously demonized over the Hillary probe (that definitely cost her late undecided voters and maybe the election) is strange in itself; but stranger still is this sudden love affair after learning yesterday that the Trump-Russia probe started in July, five months before the election and not afterwards-which have some Clinton people badly and understandably upset (see).
 
 
Indeed, my question to Trump-haters is this: why does James Comey have any credibility with you as an impartial investigator when there's hard evidence that he's anything but? That he's partisan, corrupt and opportunistic? Why do you trust that he's heading a fair, honest, unbiased probe of Trump's alleged ties to Russia when he kept it under wraps for eight months? When on the very day he reopened the Hillary case he went public with it knowing it would dominate the news cycle until Election Day and hurt Hillary politically (not that I care)? Why aren't you furious after learning that Comey zipped his lips until yesterday about the existence of a Trump probe? Why the silence in July about Trump but not in October about Hillary? Why did Comey keep the Trump probe hidden for the four months prior to the election, and then publicly reveal it 18 weeks later when Trump was securely in power? Why did Comey wait so long? Didn't you, I and the public have a right to know?
 
 
The real question is this: was Republican Comey in collusion with the Trump campaign? Like Vladimir Putin, did Comey favor Trump (the border security, law and order, anti-jihad candidate) over Hillary (perceived to be weak on crime, border security and terrorism)? Did Comey at the last moment interfere in the election by design to enable Hillary's defeat and endear himself to irate Republicans so he could keep his job if Trump should win? Was that Comey's plan? 
 
 
Schiff: We know less than a fraction of what the FBI knows. 
 
Really, Trump haters, how can you be certain that Comey wasn't a weaponized arm of the Trump campaign, and now of the Trump White House, and is putting on a show of impartiality? How can you be sure that when Trump (rejecting calls from Democrats to fire Comey) allowed him to continue as FBI chief he wasn't being rewarded for his October surprise that may have won Trump the White House (as both Hillary and Nate Silver believe see)? Indeed, if Comey finds a smoking gun that could hurt one or more of Trump's associates, or the big man himself, how can you be sure that he won't suppress it-as Adam Schiff recently accused him of doing with a sh*t load of information (see)?
 
 
 
Face the facts Trump haters: with James Clapper two weeks ago telling Chuck Todd that he saw no evidence from the FBI and other intel agencies of criminal collusion between Team Trump and Russia, and with Comey seemingly Trump's man and unreliable to disclose any crimes that have or may come to light since, things are looking mighty grim for you. Comey is not your last best hope for bringing down Trump. In hoping he is you're setting yourselves up for another disappointment (remember Gropergate?). Trump's MAGA revolution disruptively rolls on while you squirm and burn unable to stop him.

FUNNY AS HELL: DESPER8 DEFEATED TRUMP H8ERS PROGNOSTIC8 SHORT 8 MONTH PRESIDENCY FOR TRUMP-AND OTHER CRAZY LEFTIST THINGS

 

 
 
 

I posted this on Disqus:

WE'RE IN THE FIRST 100 DAYS OF 8 EPOCH MAKING MAGA TRUMP YEARS

THE TRUMP H8ERS REPLY

With Trump constantly throwing temper tantrums and running to his safe space at Mar A Lago, only a retard would assume he's going to be president for 8 months let alone 8 years.

At this rate of unbridled serial lying, I doubt he'll last 8 months before the Republicans impeach him.

You adore a goddamn liar.

You own it.

 

RobbieFreeman Apollospeaks 

 

Perhaps you mean 8 months?

 

 

He's not physically able to do eight months. We've had two presidents in a row who were in great physical shape, and they were visibly aged by the job. By month 8 Trump will be so worn out and sick that he'll be unable to continue. And If I'm wrong then by then he'll be impeached and removed from office. Only koolaid drinking Trumpbots think he'll last longer

MY REPLY

Wasn't it loony vicious Trump h8ers like you three fools who laughed hysterically when Trump announced his run for the presidency, anticip8ing an embarrassing clown show that would damage the Republican Party? Indeed, didn't masterminds like you predict with cocksure certainty that Trump's campaign would be short-lived and collapse after 8 weeks with no one taking him seriously? That he wouldn't make it past the first GOP deb8? That Cuze, Bush, Christe and the rest would totally eviser8 and humili8 him in front of a national audience?

And then after the 8th deb8 with Trump standing strong and winning primaries what did you geniuses predict? That if he became his party's candid8 Hillary would decim8 him in a 48 st8 sweep? Remember the Hillaryslide? And when you said that Trump was so badly toxic his defeat would be worse than Barry Goldwater's?

Then just weeks before the election in early October (the 8th month of the old Roman calendar) you convinced yourself the campaign was virtually over. That Trump was a dead candid8 walking because of the scandalous lewd Groperg8 tape, and the 8 fems who charged him with sexual harassment (see). Do you recall how el8ed you were as the media turned Trump into sexual predator? And how woman voters would reject him big time?

But 8 hours into election night what was your f8? You 8 your hearts out as Hillary went str8 down in flames losing Pennsylvania in a tight race - with Trump getting 48% of the vote. Remember your shock and disbelief as if the laws of God and N8ure were suddenly termin8ed and an altern8 reality where nothing made sense set in? Then came your post-election h8fest with baseless alleg8ions that Trump was Putin's criminal soul m8 and they conspired together to steal the election. How has that worked out for you after a lengthy FBI investig8ion turned up squat?

  And here you are just 8 short weeks into Trump's disruptive presidency frustr8ed beyond measure making the same mistake of underr8ing him; predicting he'll have the shortest time in office since John Kennedy, and be impeached for a worse crime than Waterg8? Do you really think that 8 months from now you'll be celebra8ing Trump vac8ing the White House and living in a jail cell? If you do then tell me: what drugs are you taking that's causing such hullucin8ing?

A word of advice to you rascally reprob8s: Before making more embarrassing predictions about our unpredictable, gravity defying Pres get yourselves a new one of these:

For a crystal gazer with a broken ball and brain cannot a good prognostic8or make.  

 

 

THRICE CIRCUMCISED BERNIE

 

Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz Debate Health Care - The New York Times

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE
 
between this Jewish boy from Brooklyn and single payer socialist Bernie who was born in that great New York borough? 
 
 ANSWER
 
I was circumcised once at birth. But Bernie was circumcised thrice: at birth, by Hillary, and in his debate with Ted Cruz on healthcare reform. That was the unkindest cut of all. For it left Bernie with too little d*ck to please his wife anymore.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Don't let Cuba, Venezuela and North Korea fool you.
 

SOCIALISM IS HEAVEN ON EARTH

Though it can't to be found in this world just yet I assure you it's coming. How do I know? Bernie Sanders told us so. Like an Old Testament prophet that old socialist Jew is never wrong. Just look what happened to single payer socialized medicine in Bernie's  Vermont. The states are the laboratories of democracy. And what's been tested in one state tells us what's good and will work for all. Read this piece on BernieCare and tell me that I'm wrong:

WHAT WILL EIGHT YEARS OF DONALD TRUMP AND A BOOMING ECONOMY DO TO THE UNHINGED, BRAIN BROKEN RADICAL LEFT?

 

 
 
 
keithobrein_opener.jpg

The Great Rust Belt Revolt. Former steel workers, coal miners and party line Democrats put Trump in the White House, and will keep him there because of a coming booming high growth economy.

If this past historic election has so pathetically unhinged and collectively broken the brains of the Trump derangement political and media Left then what will they and their senseless "resistance" be like after eight successful Trump years? How far will they plunge into political and moral madness when a rejuvenated and richly prospering middle class (declining for decades) votes in 2020 to continue the Trump presidency? Then votes again in 2024 to continue his legacy?   

The Liberal Brain four months after Trump's election. What will it be like after eight years of his presidency?

Many Trump haters across the net unable to bear the thought of just four Trump years (imagining there could be no worse or crueler fate) childishly fantasize that he'll be gone in ten months or less impeached for this or that offense; or assassinated by a Moslem, climate change nut, or illegal immigrant. But as we learned from eight years of the impeached sexual predator and perjurer Bill Clinton the economy is destiny for presidents however flawed their characters. And all that big, bad "deplorable" Trump needs do to remain the Left's archenemy-in-chief for two terms (and ensure Republican congressional rule) is to double the national GDP, and reverse the worse recovery since the 1930s.

Indeed, and this is instructive, during the 1930s progressive, liberal (Teddy Roosevelt Republican) Herbert Hoover tried to tax, spend and regulate his way out of the Great Depression he helped create; and then FDR doubling down on Hoover's failed policies (he didn't go far enough FDR thought) prolonged the Depression until the great war. In short, the New Deal (which collapsed in 1937 from taxation, unionization and excessive regulation) was simply Hooverism on steroids (the one being the other in embryo).

 

Barack Obama (an economic ignoramus like Hoover and FDR), who stupidly thought the New Deal was a national success, fancied himself the new FDR with a new and greater New Deal for America -to end the Great Recession (which was ending when he took office). He, Barack Obama, would outspend FDR and Hoover combined, and every other US president in peacetime who tried to tax, spend and regulate their way out of economic distress. The size not the substance of the program was the answer. The more billions spent the better.

 And the result, believed Obama, would be historic: the greatest, grandest, most gigantic recovery ever recorded-far outdoing Ronald Reagan's high growth recovery in the 1980s. Indeed, the Obama years with its staggering $800 billion stimulus would go down in history as a new era of US economic growth and prosperity - that would be emulated the world over and ignite a global boom. Not only was Obama going to lower the rising seas, he was going to raise mankind's standard of living in every clime and country. But that was not to be. Obama taxed and taxed and taxed, spent and spent and spent, kept interest rates low, printed trillions (he backed Bernanke and the Fed) and enacted thousands of new rules and regulations to control economic activity, and what did we get? The rich got fantastically richer from a rigged, soaring, overpriced stock market (see), and government boomed at the expense of Mainstreet as the economy of the middle class lagging far behind continued to decline with millions going broke (see).

Indeed, while the federal government from 2009 to 2016 grew by 16% (see) the annual average growth rate of GDP was a trickle in comparison: a weak, pathetic, mediocre 1.48%-the lowest of the last 11 presidents. The Obama stimulus was another big government/Keynesian failure (hopefully the last of its kind) that grew the national debt, not the economy and the middle class. Obama who lyingly claimed that his policies saved us from a depression (Bush's TARP did that) told voters that they should be glad things weren't worse - as Hillary campaigned to stay the course which proved a fatal political mistake. As economic anxiety and discontent ran high (causing the rise of Trump and Bernie Sanders) it's no wonder Hillary lost with working men and women in the rust belt states: these forgotten Americans were in revolt against the Washington/Wall Street/Globalist status quo  that Hillary coddled. They wanted change, voted Trump and won't be sorry - already they're seeing results.

 

Indeed, the robust economy promised by Obama that never materialized (due to his growth killing policies) is there simmering beneath the surface waiting to volcanically erupt; waiting for the pro-growth, pro-business, America first policies of Donald Trump. Maganomics is Obamanomics in reverse: it puts economic growth above growing government, and the creation of new wealth over the spending and spreading of it. For Obama (as for FDR) government was the business of America, the primary engine of growth; for Trump, as for Coolidge (a great economic success story), it's BUSINESS with a capital "C"-Free Market Capitalism should and must be America's primary business for restoring the economy.

Because of clueless Obama's ignorant policies there's a tremendous amount of pent up growth inherent our economy that Trump is hell-bent on unleashing. Throughout the campaign Trump promised to deliver 4% GDP growth and create 25 million new jobs over a ten year period. And he wasn't bullshitting. Indeed, if Trump can simply double Obama's weak, pathetic 1.48% GDP to 3% or slightly less (easy to do) that would ensure his feared (by the Left) political success; it would add a massive $10 trillion to our $20 trillion economy increasing its size by a whopping 33%, and create 20 million new jobs. That means at least 12 years of Republicans ruling the White House and continued control of Congress.  And as long as Trump's successor keeps to his MAGA agenda (unlike Bush 41's eschewing of Reagan) he will be a two term president.

A LORETTA ANTI-TRUMP LYNCH MOB
 
MARCH! BLEED! DIE! 

 

Trump's victory over Hillary has transformed the political Left into one vast insane asylum of hysteria, hate and murderous rage. What will they be like when they lose to Trump (and the GOP) again and again and again with eight in your face defiant years haranguing, ridiculing and tormenting them? They'll be lots of riots and blood in the streets until like sick, low energy Hillary (in the last days of her failing campaign) they're completely worn down and exhausted by this man.

HILLARY CLINTON AND THE FASCINATING HISTORY OF POPULAR VOTE WINNERS WHO LOST THE PRESIDENCY

TOM PEREZ AND KEITH ELLISON: STAYING THE COURSE TO DEMOCRAT DISASTER

  
 
 
 
Among US Presidents Barack Obama has two distinctions that set him apart from the rest: 1. He's our first black President; and 2. He's perhaps the most popular and likable FAILED President in U.S. history leaving his successor a mess while his approval rating was above 50%. And because he's failed so badly on the economy, fiscal policy, healthcare and financial reform, border and cyber security, law and order, national unity  Russian reset, Iran, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan and the War on Terror Obama's been a political disaster for his party on a scale unseen since Herbert Hoover devastated the GOP in 1932.
 
 
Perez doesn't rule out Hillary running again in 2020
 
 
RESET AMERICA
HILLARY CLINTON
2020
 
But the incompetent, feckless catastrophically failed Obama is so hugely popular with rank and file Democrats, and his successor Donald Trump so hated and reviled by them, that the party has chosen to keep the status quo and stay the course unmindful that worse is yet to come. Indeed, having learned nothing from Hillary's defeat in 2016 and the two mid-term debacles of 2010 and 2014, and believing that Trump will be such a disgrace and disaster that the Obama years will look like a golden age in comparison, the Democats have chosen the Far Left establishment again; and they have elected for their party chief and deputy two loyal, true blue radical Obamunists: Tom Perez and Keith Ellison. 
 
 
Tom Perez, Obama's former labor secretary, and Keith Ellison, America's first Moslem congressman, are ominous signs for the Dems of worse to come in the Era of Donald Trump who they continue to contemptuously underestimate and ridicule at their peril. Indeed, some of these signs as you will see are strongly and strangely linked to Obama by way of his birthday (a day of infamy) as well as his failed politics.
 
 
For example, on the day Tom Perez was born (10-7-1961) Barack Obama was exactly 64 days old (see). The proximity of Perez's and Obama's births (just 9 weeks apart), and the fact that Perez served in Obama's cabinet,  suggests that this is a significant coincidence that likely prefigures what lies ahead for the Dems in 2018: the third straight loss for Obamunists of a mid-term election. Indeed, as the number 64 is the square of 8, or 8x8, it just so happens that 88 weeks separates Perez's election as DNC chief last month from election day 2018 (see). On that day, November 6, I predict that the political collapse of the Democrats will continue; that they will lose more seats in the House, Senate and state legislatures principally because of a booming US economy triggered by Trump's anti-Obama pro-growth policies; and pundits will write that the party must strike out in a new direction or suffer the blow of losing the 2020 election.
 
 
Indeed, in 2018 the still very popular Obama will be out on the campaign trail supporting Democrat candidates, and personalizing the election (like he did in 2016 with Hillary) working desperately to save what little is left of his failed legacy after 20 MAGA months of Donald Trump. Astonishingly, that very November 6, 2018 will be continuing the wave of the 2014 mid-terms is indicated symbolically by the number 20914-this five digit number encoded with the year 2014 is the number of days separating Obama's birth from election day (see).
 
 
Also seemingly ominous of coming defeat was the convergence of Perez's last birthday on October 7th of last year (see). This was the eventful day that WikiLeaks launched its release of John Podesta's   6500 stolen emails which proved so embarrassing and hurtful to Hillary and her party. Could this possibly signify that Tom Perez as DNC chief will prove just as embarrassing and damaging to THE Dems as Wikileaks? And that he'll be gone as party chief after 2018?
 
 
Who then could replace Perez as party head to lead it into the 2020 election? Will it be Perez's deputy Keith Ellison who is backed by the Bernie Sanders wing of the party? Will Dems believe that the answer to their woes is moving further to the Left (as the country moves Right)? Under Ellison the Obama caused collapse of the party would continue unabated. Indeed, just as Perez was born just 64 days from Obama's birth in 1961, Ellison amazingly (as I wrote HERE) was born two years later in 1963 on Obama's second birthday. Incredibly, just as Obama is exactly 24 months older than Ellison, when he (the closest thing we had to a Moslem president) was sworn into office on January 20, 2009 it was 24 months and 17 days after Ellison's swearing in on the Koran by Pelosi as America's first Moslem congressman.
 
 
January 3, 2007 Ellison is sworn in as congressman
 
To say the least, the Perez-Ellison team is bad news for the Democrats. Both men are race obsessed, class warfare, business hating radicals. La Raza, pro-illegals Perez once characterized all bankers as "blood sucking Klu Klux Klansmen (that's how crazy this man is);" and Ellison is a pro-Palestinian, jihad friendly, anti-Semite. It will fascinate you to learn that on the day Keith Ellison was born Tom Perez was 666 days old (see). There are those who believe that this infamous triplet Biblical number, found in the Book of Revelation, is a symbol of extreme evil. In going further to the radical extreme greater evil than Obama will befall the Democrat Party.

IS KEITH ELLISON CHOSEN BY ALLAH AND BARACK OBAMA TO HEAD THE DNC AND STOP THE “RACIST” TRUMP PRESIDENCY? (SARCASM)

DONALD TRUMP, TOWERGATE AND OBAMA’S REPORTED DESPERATE 11TH HOUR TAPPING OF TRUMP’S SERVER

 

EXCLUSIVE: FBI 'Granted FISA Warrant' Covering Trump Camp's Ties To Russia-HEATSTREET

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 On March 4th, the 44th day of his presidency, Donald Trump in 4 shocking tweets accused the 44th president (who was 44 days out of office) of spying on him to destroy his presidential campaign (see).
 

The vicious out of control anti-Trump derangement media has been reporting for months that the FBI and other intel agencies have been digging for evidence using wiretaps and secret surveillance that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in interfering with the 2016 election; and that this may have tipped the outcome in Donald Trump's favor (which I disprove HERE ). Indeed, a scared sh*tless, panicking Barack Obama frightened at the thought that the hated, "deplorable" Donald Trump would succeed him in office and decimate his legacy pulled out all the stops to find the smoking gun that would criminally link him to Russia (or other crimes) and destroy his candidacy. And if that meant abusing his power and ordering legal or illegal wiretaps on Trump (which he has the authority to do see), then so be it. The terrible end of Trump being president justified and excused the immoral, politically driven (if not exactly criminal) means of bringing him down.

 

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

Indeed, "Desperate men do desperate things." And as the race drew closer to election day with a gravity defying Trump running strong, lying, lawless (see) Obama's desperation to stop him grew into an insane obsession; and as a last desperate resort he abused his powers and spied on Trump. Indeed, when sifting through and carefully analyzing the news reports from the credible sources cited above you will see that Donald Trump's shocking March 4th tweets accusing Obama of a McCarthyite political witch hunt to destroy him was JUSTIFIED.  

When Donald Trump on the 44th day of his presidency accused the 44th President of a Watergate type crime it was exactly 44 years, 8 months and 16 days  from the Watergate break in (see). Moreover, the Watergate break in on June 17, 1972 fell on the 1244th day of the Nixon presidency (see).
 

How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! 7:02 AM - 4 Mar 2017

 
 
 
 

Indeed, in an explosive, eventful October after the failure of the strategically released Access Hollywood tape, and coordinated multiple groping allegations, a psyched out Obama (at his wits end) made one last pre-election day move to bring down Trump and irreparably damage his campaign. The story as reported by the Guardian, HeatStreet and the New York Times is as follows:

Back in June of last year (before the Republican Convention) Obama's Justice Department and the FBI believed that a private computer server in Trump Tower (Trump's campaign headquarters) was linked to several Russian banks, and was being used in the commission of possible financial/banking crimes that somehow posed a threat to our national security. The DOJ and FBI seeking a warrant from the FISA Court against Trump drew up an affidavit ( apparently citing him as a potential Russian agent or spy)  requesting permission to tap his server and phones. But the ridiculous request was denied because it failed to establish probable cause.

Now here is where the story gets extremely fishy and loses credibility. According to HeatStreet in October just weeks before the election the DOJ and FBI submitted a second request to FISA for a tap warrant for Trump's server. Because this new request was drawn differently ("more narrowly" says the report) it met the court's criteria for a warrant, and it was granted. This is what HeatStreet said:

"The first [FISA] request, which, sources say, named Trump, was denied back in June, but the second was drawn more narrowly and was granted in October after evidence was presented of a server, possibly related to the Trump campaign, and its alleged links to two banks: SVB Bank and Russia’s Alfa Bank. While the New York Times story speaks of metadata, sources suggest that a FISA warrant was granted to look at the full content of emails and other related documents......(see)"

Obama had the motive and means to tap Trump, and probably did given his desperation to stop him and save his legacy.
 

Now really, does this make any logical or even political sense? Why did Loretta Lynch and the FBI wait so long (five months) to rewrite the request to FISA when they could have immediately done so in June hours or days after the first request was denied? This way, not needlessly wasting precious time, Obama's DOJ (race obsessed Loretta Lynch), out for blood and wanting to stop ("white supremacist Islamophobic racist") Donald Trump and torpedo his campaign, would have started taping his alleged Russian linked server weeks before the GOP Convention; and if any crime, dirt or whatever was discovered it could have been used to wreck havoc on Trump, throw the Convention into chaos and possibly deny him the nomination.

Indeed, surely it could not have taken AG Lynch and FBI five months to figure out what to do after the initial application for the surveillance warrant was denied. With the server at Trump Tower possibly and potentially being the solution and key to stopping and defeating Trump (after everything else failed) it makes no sense for  Lynch to procrastinate so long - to wait so close to the election in October before taking the appropriate measures (rewriting the affidavit) in getting the FISA warrant.

"There's no question that something happened," White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Monday. "The question is it, is it surveillance, is it a wiretap, or whatever? There has been enough reporting strongly suggesting something occurred."
 

Indeed, as I said, it makes no logical or political sense for Lynch and the FBI to do in October what they could have easily done five months before in June - unless, of course, the story in whole or in part is untrue and a cover up. What I mean is this: After the first FISA request in June was denied Obama and Lynch were stuck. Contrary to what we're being told Lynch could not have improved the original affidavit that FISA rejected in June; they were unable to rewrite it (or "narrow it," as HeatStreet said) to show probable cause that Trump was some kind of Russian agent or spy and  national security threat. In other words, what they did in June was the best they could do. They couldn't go back to the court a second time as they had nothing more convincing to show it.

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway told Fox News that "credible news sources" suggested there might have been politically motivated activity during the campaign that has yet to be divulged. "Trump is POTUS," said Conway "and has  information that the rest of us do not."

What am I inferring then? That there was no tap placed on Trump's server and phones? That it's fake news? No! President Trump in his tweets acknowledged that the tap did occur just as is stated and suggested in the above articles - but without a Trump related FISA warrant and court approval. The Washington Post after months of trying to confirm the October warrant couldn't do so (see)." WAPO failed because the October warrant is fake, phony news and doesn't exist.

 

The publisher of the Newsmax Media website, Christopher Ruddy, a friend of Trump's, wrote Sunday the president told him, "This [Towergate] will be investigated. It will all come out. I will be proven right."

But the Trump server, so it seems, was nevertheless tapped - tapped immorally if not illegally by a deeply distressed Barack Obama who saw the unthinkable unfolding before his eyes: the "nightmare" of a Trump presidency moving closer and closer to becoming a reality. Indeed, an alarmed Obama rightly understood that if Trump against all odds could politically emerge unscathed from Gropergate (which should have destroyed him) then he could go all the way to the White House. And thus was born the desperate idea (FISA Court be damned) of Obama deeming Trump a potential foreign spy (a danger to national security); and going to Loretta Lynch for approval in placing a covert tap on Trump's server and phones to find a criminal 11th hour link tying him to Russia. It was late in the race and there was nowhere left for Obama (Clinton and the Democrats) to go. "Nothing ventured nothing gained." Obama abusing his power turned Trump into the victim of a politically motivated unjustified surveillance investigation under the pretext that he was a possible Russian spy and national security threat. But that miserably failed like everything else that was tried. And now Trump is President rubbing Obama's face in the feces of his lies and subversive crimes and promising to prove them in time. As it says in the Zero Hedge piece, "Trump may have the last laugh."

 
Perhaps before he left office Obama
should have pardoned
himself.
 
 
UPDATE
 
10:08 AM: Nunes says 
there is no evidence of a “physical wiretap” of Trump Tower but remains open to the possibility of other types of surveillance against the Trump campaign and its associates. 
 
There you have it people. The FBI's denial of Obama directly ordering the wiretapping of Trump Tower doesn't mean that other types of surveillance weren't used.
 
UPDATE
 
 
 President Trump's Towergate allegation is coming closer and closer to being vindicated.

Flashback: Obama and Deep State Bugged House of Rep's Cloak Room - Why Wouldn't Obama Wiretap Trump? Gateway Pundit

Obama was accused of wire tapping the House of Representatives cloak room in 2013

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

OBAMA'S GLOBAL TAPPING

* a private climate change strategy meeting between UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin;


* Chief of Staff of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for long term interception targetting his Swiss phone;


* The Director of the Rules Division of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Johann Human, and targetted his Swiss phone for long term interception;


* Sensitive Italian diplomatic cables relating to Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu;


* Top EU and Japanese trade ministers discussing their secret strategy and red lines to stop the US “extort[ing]” them at the WTO Doha arounds (the talks subsequently collapsed);


* Five other top EU economic officials for long term interception, including their French, Austrian and Belgium phone numbers;


* The phones of Italy’s ambassador to NATO and other top Italian officials for long term interception; and


* Details of a critical private meeting between then French president Nicolas Sarkozy, Merkel and Berluscon, where the latter was told the Italian banking system was ready to “pop like a cork”.

OBAMA'S MEDIA TAPPING

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

* Fox News’ James Rosen and his family, were part of an investigation into government officials anonymously leaking information to journalists. Rosen was not charged but his movements and actions were tracked.


* Members of the Associated Press were also a target of the surveillance in a phone-records scandal.


* Reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in 2014 that her personal computer and CBS laptop were hacked after she began filing stories about Benghazi that were unflattering to theObama administration. A source who checked her laptop said the hacker used spyware “proprietary to a government agency,” according to an article in the New York Post.


* WikiLeaks also tweeted that the Obama Administration spied on their journalists as well.

THREE U.S. PRESIDENTS HAVE BEEN STOOGES OF RUSSIA. WILL DONALD TRUMP BE THE FOURTH ?

 
 
 
 
 

 Trump is "Putin's puppet," "his useful fool," "his idiot and stooge" read the above pre-election headlines by Trump haters and concerned critics. But if what was negatively said of candidate Trump (based on his pro-Russian rhetoric and lack of criticism about neo-imperialist Vladimir Putin's sins) turns out to be true of President Trump what then? History tells us that he will join a club of useful idiot president stooges who were naïve about and dangerously soft on Russia, and paid a steep price for their blind trust and folly. These presidents are as follows:

 

 MO

 
 

First there was the gullible, butt kissing liberal Democrat appeaser Franklin Roosevelt who called implacable, mass murdering Russian strongman Joseph Stalin (allied to Hitler for several years) "Uncle Joe" to humanize him. FDR's weakness and naivety with good old "Uncle Joe" at Yalter (where Stalin had him bugged) emboldened the autocrat to dominate the war ravaged nations of eastern Europe and half of Germany after the war causing decades of misery and oppression to millions. This started the very dangerous 45 year-long Cold War that led to costly wars for us in Korea and Vietnam (which killed 100,000 US troops combined) and nearly went nuclear in 1962 over the Cuban Missile Crisis.

LARRY

 

Then 66 years later came the weak, butt kissing, ultra appeasing liberal Democrat Jimmy Carter. Ridiculously declaring that we had "overcome our inordinate fear of Communism" (as the Soviet Union was expanding its power and influence across the world) Carter made concession after concession to implacable Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and paid the price when the Red Army brutally invaded Afghanistan - this gave birth to al-Qaida, 9/11 and the war on terror that we are still fighting today.

CURLY

 

Then 32 years later came another clueless, butt kissing, liberal Democrat Barack Obama. Obama having learned nothing from the Russian invasion of Georgia declared ominously in Munich (city of war causing weakness) an appeasement policy for "resetting U.S./Russian relations." Obama, stupidly believing that "Reset" was a historic success, and he'd won over the heart, mind, friendship and trust of Vladimir Putin with his bowing, scraping and concessions, assured us during a debate with Mitt Romney that "Russia was not our enemy or a geostrategic threat." Obama (the third and fourth terms of Jimmy Carter) was made to look like history's biggest fool since Neville Chamberlain when Russia invaded Ukraine, annexed Crimea then assisted Syria's Bashir "the Butcher" Assad in horrific genocide.

SHEMP?

 

The big question now is this: three American presidents have been the useful gullible idiot stooges of Russian imperialism. But will there now be a fourth? Will Donald Trump who was a liberal Democrat (and the seventh president from New York after FDR) be the Republican Shemp of American politics and repeat the mistakes of FDR, Carter and Obama? Will we see this?

 

Unless Putin does a 180 and becomes a real friend and ally of the U.S. (which is unlikely) I hope not.

BUT PERHAPS THE FOLLOWING ARE SIGNS THAT THIS ABASEMENT OF AMERICA UNDER TRUMP (HARD TO IMAGINE) WON'T HAPPEN

 Trump Wants to Expand Nuclear Weapons Capability, Make it 'Top of the Pack | Reuters

 

I THOUGHT TRUMP WAS PUTIN'S BITCH AND PUPPET?

Instead he's acting more like a Ronald Reagan nuclear adversary of Russia, something Obama dared not do. Peace Through Nuclear Strength. Will Trump like Reagan be seen as a  "nuclear cowboy?" Will we see the return of the failed nuclear freeze movement trying to frighten us to death? That instead of a global warming apocalypse caused by burning hydrocarbon fuels we'll freeze to death in a nuclear winter caused by hydrogen bombs decimating the world  (see)?

AND THEN THERE'S THIS:

During her Senate confirmation for UN Ambassador Nikki Haley sounding very unTrumpian accused Russia of "war crimes" in Syria and supported keeping Russian sanctions in place. And then at the UN early last month Ambassador Haley condemned Russia for its recent aggressive actions in eastern Ukraine, and reiterated that sanctions imposed on Russia wouldn't be lifted as long as this aggression continued. Where's the Putin puppetry in this?

IS THE RISE IN ANTI-SEMITIC CRIMES DUE TO TRUMP’S JUDEOPHILIA AND PRO-ISRAEL POLICIES?

 

 
 
 
 
The hypocrisy of Hillary Clinton, Bill DeBlasio, Tom Perez and the pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel radical Democrat Left on their sudden discovery of anti-Semeticism and concern over rising anti-Jewish hate crimes (underreported by MSM during the Obama years see) is truly, truly stunning. While we don't yet know who is behind the rash of targeted bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers and schools (over 70 since the start of the year), and the recent vandalizing of Jewish cemeteries near St. Louis and in Philly, what we do know is this: the American Jewish community has no greater, stronger and more trustworthy friend than Donald J. Trump; and, on the contrary, it has no real friend in the cowardly, collapsing Democrat Party who came close last week to making the anti-Semite Keith Ellision its DNC chief.
 
 
It is not just that President Trump is a Judeophile who deeply loves the Jewishness of his daughter, his son in law, his lovely grand kids and jewish friends that proves he's a real true friend to American Jews; nor is it his Christian Zionism and belief that Israel is the legitimate national homeland of the Jewish people; apart from this is Trump's attempt to stem the flow of Jew hating, anti-American, Islamonazi Moslems into this country (from deadly Islamic terrorist states) whose actual number worldwide, as polls show (see), is in the hundreds of millions. It is certain that Donald Trump doesn't want to see happen in this country under his watch what's occurring in Europe with Jews fleeing to Israel in the thousands to escape growing anti-Jewish violence by vicious Moslem scum (see). There's no place in America for such evil; and Trump wants to keep it out as much as possible not just for Jews, but for all Americans as no good could come from continually increasing their numbers.
 
  
But is it neo-Nazis who are behind the bomb threats and vandalism as many on the Left want to believe caused by an atmosphere of racist hate created by President Trump? If so then why against Jews and not Moslems and Mexicans? Hasn't Trump been accused of racist hate against these two groups more than any others? When Hitler targeted German Jews for hate he unleashed a deadly wave of anti-Jewish persecution and violence. Where then is the surge of hate crimes against Hispanics and American Moslems allegedly incited by Trump's rhetoric? Why Jews? Did Trump say their were Jewish criminals, rapists and murders stealing across our southern border? Did he single out the Jewishness of a Jewish judge for possible bias in a lawsuit? Did he take issue with and was insensitive to Jewish goldstar parentswho were critical of him? Did he say that Israeli Jews danced on Jersey City rooftops celebrating the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11? No? Then how could Trump's rhetoric incite threats of deadly violence and vandalism against Jews? It makes no logical sense.
 
 
Or is it, as I suspect, an alliance of Israel hating pro-Palestinian Moslems and infidel idiot anti-Israel Leftists desperately reacting to Trump's Judeophilia and pro-Israel policies? Are Moslems and Leftists behind these attacks (as they are in universities) joined together in a common cause to stop Trump? Indeed, are the threats and vandalism an ominous warning of worse to come for American Jews if Trump dares to cut off funds to the Palestinian Authority, move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, or fights BDS (the boycotting, disinvestment and sanctioning of Israel)? Indeed, if Trump stays the course in strongly backing Israel over Palestinians (he knows who the bad guys are in the conflict) and moves the embassy as US law requires are these anti-Semites planning to take the next extreme step and blow up Jewish centers and synagogues and kill Jews in protest? God forbid!
 
 
 But what is absolutely certain and clear is that Hillary Clinton, cying Chuckie, DeBlasio, Perez, Ellison and the pro-Pali Left in wanting to recklessly open the floodgates of Moslem refugees and immigrants into this country (from any land no matter how dangerous) are no real friends to America and American Jews whose peril would increase proportionally, as it's doing in more regressed Islamized Europe.
