Shock Survey: Less Than 1 Out Of Every 4 Republicans In Congress Support A Border Wall

MICHAEL SNYDER–It is time to flush the toilet in Washington D.C., because the professional politicians that we have been sending there just keep betraying us over and over again.  On Wednesday, I was absolutely stunned when I came across a brand new survey that was conducted by USA Today.  They asked all of the members of Congress whether they support a border wall or not, and less than one out of every 4 Republicans said that they did.  This is just another example of why the American people are so deeply frustrated with the Republican Party these days.  Most Republicans are spineless jellyfish that have been compromising for so long that they don’t really stand for anything anymore.

If President Trump had not promised to build a wall, he never would have won the Republican nomination in 2016, and he sure wouldn’t be the president of the United States today.  This is a point that Ann Coulter had made over and over again, and the fact that I strongly support building a wall is a big reason why she is supporting my campaign for Congress.  Conservatives all over the country want a wall, and that is why it is so disturbing to hear that most Republicans in Congress do not support building one

President Trump has been adamant that he needs Congress to approve funding to start building his border wall, but Republicans on Capitol Hill are far less adamant about supporting it. When asked by the USA TODAY Network whether they support the president’s initial $1.6 billion budget request to begin construction, only 69 of the 292 Republicans on Capitol Hill said “yes.” Among the rest, three Republicans said they oppose the money, several evaded a direct answer, and the rest simply refused to respond to the question.

The USA TODAY Network asked the 534 members of the House and Senate whether they support the $1.6 billion down payment approved by the House and found fewer than 25% of Republicans willing to stand up for the plan.

Building a wall seems like such a no-brainer to me.  For decades we have had an immigration policy that is all mixed up.  We have made it exceedingly difficult to come in through the front door, but meanwhile we have been keeping the back door completely wide open.

Today, our system of legal immigration is a complete and total nightmare.  It is extremely confusing, it is very expensive, and it takes way too long.  I once helped someone through that process, and it was so convoluted that I could barely even understand it.

Meanwhile, we have kept the back door totally wide open and have allowed tens of millions of people to enter this country illegally.  So we are actually discouraging good people from coming into our nation legally, and meanwhile we have rolled out the red carpet for criminals, gang members, drug dealers and those that would like to take advantage of the system.

As I discuss in my latest book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”, we need to make sure that everyone comes in through the front door.  It has been proposed that we can use “technology” and other methods to secure our borders, and I would love to see something that actually works.  But we do know that walls work, and we know that building a wall on the southern border would dramatically reduce illegal immigration and begin forcing people to come in through the front door.

I have previously written about the tremendous problems that illegal immigration is causing in communities all over the nation.  If we would just secure our borders, we could start significantly reducing levels of human trafficking, violent crime and gang membership, and so I don’t know why anyone would want to be opposed to doing that.

Unfortunately, when USA Today approached Republican members of Congress about a wall, most of them didn’t even want to take a clear stance at all

The overwhelming majority of congressional Republicans refused to take a stance on the wall funding when asked by USA TODAY. Most simply declined to participate in the survey or refused to even respond to queries. Many others offered general positions about the importance of securing the border and requiring employers to verify the immigration status of their workers.

It is time for the era of politically-correct career politicians to end.

If a Republican running for Congress will not solidly commit to building a border wall, that individual does not deserve your vote.

You guys know where I stand, and I’m not moving.  I am committed to building the wall, and we need to elect others all over the nation that are also committed to building the wall.  I hope that you will help us, and I hope that as many of you as possible will get involved in our campaigns all around the country.

Individually, there is very little that we can get done, but collectively we can make a massive difference.

Congress & President Condemn America’s Founding Fathers!

US Congress & President Condemn America’s Founding Fathers!

The Congress of the United States of America and the president of The United States Donald Trump signed into law a resolution condemning America’s founding fathers and the principles that founded America. 

Here are the unadulterated easily proven facts!

1. The founding document of America is The Declaration of Independence.

2. The Declaration is a radical nationalist document that declared independence from the globalist British Empire and established an independent nationalist nation dedicated exclusively to the interests of the people of that nation.

3. America’s founding fathers were radical anti-globalist nationalists epitomized by the father of our country, George Washington whose farewell address warned Americans to avoid foreign alliances and foreign wars and to always defend the interest and heritage of the United States of America.

4. All the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States were white and they were nationalists.

5. One of the first laws enacted by the writers of our Constitution of United States was the Immigration Act of 1790 that limited immigration to America exclusively to white people. So by any definition they were “White Nationalists.”

The First Immigration Act (1790) in Section 1 required that immigration and citizenship was granted only to a  “free white person.”

6.  Even the “Great Emancipator,” Abraham Lincoln,  repeatedly talked about the absolute necessity to preserve America as a “white nation.”

In fact the controlled media and Hollywood establishment never even speaks about the fact that at the time of his assassination, Lincoln and the Republican party had a bill pending before the United States Congress to repatriate all the freed slaves in the United States back to Africa. This bill was supported by both Lincoln, the Republican party and the Democratic party of the U.S. Congress. Only his assassination prevented this bill from becoming law. Actually, the resolution passed by Congress is a condemnation of Abraham Lincoln who would by today’s standards be referred to as “white nationalist.”

7. The Congress the United States and Donald Trump signed this act condemning first and foremost, “white nationalists.” They, in effect, hatefully condemned the founders of the United States of America.

8. The resolution had no criticism of the communist terrorists of Antifa and Black Lives Matter who committed the real domestic terrorism in Charlottesville. The alt-right does not try to prevent any exercise of communist speech. The Alt-Right were the ones attacked and denied constitutional right of freedom of speech and assembly. The Alt-Right today represent the core principles of the founding documents of the United States of America and the founding fathers who created America, albeit many are far more moderate than the white nationalist founders of America.

9. This resolution was nothing more than a racist declaration of war against United States of America and our people whose forefathers created this great country.

10. Our founders naturally intended the country to be for their own people just as every non-white country does and as does the Jewish State of Israel. The resolution exposes the hypocrisy of both the controlled media and the controlled politics of America today, where no politician dare to defend “white people.”

It is time to realize that the media, politics, and financial establishment is at war with us and our heritage.

Sincerely,

Dr. David Duke

Dr. Duke Destroys the U.S. Congress Resolution hateful LIE about Charlottesville!

Download

Today Dr. Duke tore apart Congress over its resolution condemning “white supremacists” for the violence in Charlottesville when even the Washington Post and New York Times have had to confess that the violence was instigated and perpetrated by Antifa. He pointed out the similarities between the Zio media’s misrepresenting the Charlottesville car crash with the Travon Martin case. For example, in both instances, they used very old pictures of the deceased in order to portray false images of how the people looked — in Travon’s case to make him look harmless and in Heather’s case to make her look healthy.

 

Dr. Slattery joined the show and made laid out the evidence that Heather Heyer did in fact die from a heart attack, and not from being struck by a car. He went on to say that fundamental issue is that Jews look hu-white to “Normies.” If you accept Jews as just whites, then whites do rule the country. Whites run the media. Whites run Hollywood. Whites run the banks. If you accept Jews as whites, then you cannot make the case the whites are being discriminated against. But when you separate Jews from the rest of the hu-whites, then everything changes.

This was another great show.

Heroic Senator Vows to Hold Defense Bill Hostage Unless Congress Ends Iraq & Afghan Wars

The Senate on Monday took up the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), passing a motion in an 89-3 vote which allowed the legislation to proceed. That action essentially limits the procedural debate on the legislation and moves the NDAA to a full vote as early as Wednesday morning.

However, Paul made clear on his Twitter account that he had every intention of slowing down the passage of the NDAA – which sets forth the Pentagon’s budget and major programs for the next fiscal year beginning October 1 – until he was guaranteed a vote on amending the AUMF in Afghanistan in Iraq.

“I will object to all procedural motions and amendments unless and until my amendment is made in order and we vote on these wars,” Paul wrote.

He went on to note the length of time that the US military has been present in Afghanistan and Iraq.

“We have been there for 16 years. It is time for them to end. It is time for Congress to vote on whether or not they should end.”

Paul noted that the Senate was in a “quorum call,” unable to act because of his protest.

He vowed to continue the protest until Congress agreed to vote on whether or not to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Paul noted that his protest was for the soldiers, adding that “hypocrites” are happy to “pretend concern over our constitutional duty to declare war” but are happy to “block any vote on ending any of our 7 current wars.”

The senator said that he “sits nearly alone,” but he is happy to fight by himself if needed.

In addition to Paul, the NDAA cloture motion was opposed by Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden.

Paul took aim at both the “anti-war left” and the “conservative right” in his series of tweets.

“Where is the anti-war left demanding the wars end? Where is the constitional [sic] conservative right demanding Congress reclaim its war powers?” he wrote.

Although an increasing number of lawmakers have been calling on Congress to pass a new AUMF for Afghanistan, Paul has largely been alone in his mission to put a deadline on Congress for a vote.

Paul did appear to strike at least a partial deal with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) about an hour after initially issuing his threats to delay the NDAA passage, with McConnell guaranteeing Paul four hours on Tuesday to state his AUMF reasoning on the Senate floor, the Washington Post reported.

However, that wasn’t enough to get Paul to back down, with the senator later reiterating his plan to “continue to fight, and if necessary, object, to continue this debate, secure a vote, and force Congress to do its duty.”

The war in Afghanistan, which began in 2001 as a US response to the September 11 attacks, is the longest war in US history.

Hillary Clinton Wanted To Craft Voodoo Dolls Of Congress

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton flirted with the idea of making voodoo dolls of certain members of Congress and the media in response to her email server scandal, according to her new book.

The constant media coverage of her use of a secret email server frustrated Clinton because she insisted she “acted in good faith” – despite multiple attempts to cover up her activity – and eventually admitted to making a mistake.

“It was like quicksand: the more you struggle, the deeper you sink. At times, I thought I must be going crazy. Other times I was sure it was the world that had gone nuts,” Clinton wrote.

“Sometimes I snapped at my staff. I was tempted to make voodoo dolls of certain members of the press and Congress and stick them full of pins. Mostly, I was furious at myself.”

The odd remark highlights Clinton’s penchant for the occult and voodoo, which were documented on numerous occasions, including rituals she performed in the White House while First Lady as revealed in the journalist Bob Woodward’s 1996 book The Choice.

Long-time Clinton insider Larry Nichols also revealed that Hillary regularly attended a Witch coven in California during the 1990s.

“Bill told me she was going out there, she and a group of women, and she would be a part of a Witches church,” Nichols said. “When Bill told me that you could’ve hit me with a baseball bat.”

Additionally, Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta also participated in bizarre occult activities, such as “Spirit Cooking,” as revealed through WikiLeaks’ disclosure of thousands of Podesta’s private emails last year.

These “Spirit Cooking” ceremonies were hosted by gore-prone performance artist Marina Abramovic, who is regularly depicted in various videos mixing a variety of human fluids, including blood and breast milk, into a congealed “paint” used to draw disturbing phrases and images.

“Abramovic is known for her often-gory art that confronts pain and ritual. Her first performance involved repeatedly, stabbing herself in her hands. The next performance featured her throwing her nails, toenails, and hair into a flaming five-point star — which she eventually jumped inside of, causing her to lose consciousness,” writes Cassandra Fairbanks.

Prosecution Under the RICO Statutes Should Apply to Most Members of Congress

immigration the beast part 2

“Step right up and place your bets. Only a short time left, please place your bets. Final call, place your bets.”

What are we betting on? America is betting on the fact that Congress will not do a thing related to solving the “dreamers” dilemma of having been brought to America before the age of decision. It is safe to say that most Americans are sympathetic to the dilemma of this group of illegal immigrants. They did not willfully violate the immigration laws and they have nowhere to go if there were to be deported Most Americans are fine with letting them stay and work.

In recent times, the rank and file of America has more decency, common sense and compassion that the US Congress. Congress has defining set of values that guides their behaviors because most members of Congress only follow the money no matter what the cost to the country.

It Is Easier to Blame Trump

President Trump was told by the DOJ that if he did not undo Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional executive order that created DACA, he would be sued. In other words, Trump is being held accountable for Obama’s unconstitutional actions with regard to immigration.

Trump waited until that deadline and issued and order that would phase out DACA. However, Trump showed his true colors as he showed his racist nature (sarcasm) as he said if Congress failed to act, he would revisit the issue. In other words, it is Trump’s clear intention not to deport any Dreamers who are productive and not a criminal threat to the United States.

Even though the facts clearly support the fact that Trump is acting with compassion towards the Dreamers, he is being labled a racist from coast to coast.

Last night on Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox, he interviewed a wild eyed, lunatic radical from the Libertarian Party,  Katherine Mangu Ward. Not only did this radical support the Dreamers, she quickly moved away from all reason when she was asked what how many immigrants should be allowed in America, she said “As many as want to come”. Clearly this Libertarian liberal has never pondered the question “How many third world people can a nation take in, before they become the next third world country?”  Then, Tucker Carlson asked her if illegal immigrants should be hired for jobs vs. American citizens and amazingly, she said yes and that these people deserve a hand up.

here is interview which begins at the 20 minute mark:

First of all, this is why I quit the Libertarian Party after I briefly flirted with these ultra-liberals because I was originally attracted to the less regulation philosophy approach of the party. Secondly, this interview the extreme disdain  and contempt that American citizens are held in by the ruling class in America. Third, this is what has happened to California.

California is ready to fall into the ocean. No, not because of the San Andreas Fault, but because of some very faulty immigration policies. Here on Tucker Carlson’s show, he interviewed, Calexit leader Shankar Singam, who said California doesn’t have much in common with the rest of the country. He declared, “This is California. We’re not the United States.” The Calexit proponent also said it is a “good thing” that the middle class is fleeing the state because it will make room for the “new wave” of immigrants. Singam told Carlson that “the United States” should be thanking “us” for “exporting” the state’s middle class to the rest of the country.

“If everyone in the middle class is leaving, that’s actually a good thing. We need these spots opened up for the new wave of immigrants to come up. It’s what we do,” Singam told Carlson.

California has often been a bellweather for the rest of the country. This fact should frighten the other 49 states.

Here is the interview:

The American Congress Has Become a Criminal Enterprise Organization

The American Congress is a criminal enterprise organization, not an alleged criminal enterprise operation, a proven criminal enterprise operation. Meanwhile, you and I are treated like the real criminals as we are detained, by Border Patrol as they illegally check our citizenship status while they are really looking for drugs that could compete with CIA drug trafficking operations.

In this article I have chosen to provie one example of how the government has been corrupted beyond belief, while at the same time the government is engaged in destroying our traditional freedoms and liberties.

The Duplicity of the Border Patrol

Every day in America, our citizens are subject to unconstitutional searches of their vehicles and their persons by Border Patrol. The main purpose of the Border Patrol appears to be to eliminate competition in the drug business from anyone else except for CIA approved drug trafficking cartels.

The CIA runs drugs on our Southern border and they always have since before the days of Air America. The CIA has run drugs, for profit, to fund their illicit criminal enterprises for a very long time. Even the former head of the Drug Enforcement Agency, Robert Bonner, acknowledges the fact that the CIA runs drugs into the United States. Yet, the 60 Minutes interview with Bonner listed below is the only mainstream media reference to this fact.

Even a much younger Ron Paul named George H. W. Bush as co-conspirator in government sponsored drug trafficking.

Below is the testimony of top law enforcement, governmental and agency personnel and what they have to say about the CIA running drugs into this country.

 The Border Patrol Protection Racket

The United States clearly has an immigration problem. The sheer number of immigrants have overwhelmed our hospitals and schools with unreimbursed expense. Some estimates place the number of illegal aliens in the United States as high as 30 million. That means that literally, one in ten people walking the streets of our country are illegal aliens. The federal government would have the public believe that they are powerless in stopping the human tidal wave from coming into our country. The government even sanctions television shows to further this myth  in their thinly veiled propaganda pieces such as the TV show, Border Wars.

In actuality, the government possesses satellites so sensitive, so accurate, that they can read the inscription on a dime dropped on the ground in the midst of a violent sandstorm in Iraq. Yet, the American public is expected to believe that our federal government is powerless in defending against this onslaught and that the people should accept the unconstitutional practices being carried out by Border Patrol personnel dozens to hundreds of miles inside the United States.

Have you ever wondered why the Border Patrol checkpoints are 50 to 100 miles from the border? Have you ever wondered why we have these warrantless checkpoints in places like Indiana, Minnesota and Tennessee?

The entire immigration check point issue is a smokescreen. When you and your family are pulled over and asked if you are U.S. citizens, the Border Patrol agent is not interested in your citizenship, he is interested in whether or not, you are transporting narcotics. The prime directive of the Border Patrol is to run interference for the CIA sponsored drug cartels and to eliminate the competition. The border enforcement issue should also be viewed as a Trojan horse in order to continue the installation of a totalitarian government bent on the destruction of United States sovereignty, its culture, and most importantly, its time-honored civil liberties in this “papers please” totalitarian government. But most of all, the Border Patrol exists to permit the free flow of drugs into the country while eliminating any competition to the status quo.

While, as former DEA chief Bonner suggests, the CIA conducts illicit drug trafficking criminal enterprise, American citizens are abused by the thousands at these illegal checkpoints.

Conclusion

Stopping the drug trafficking on the border is not a priorty for Congress because that is not where the money is. Congress gets free healthcare for life, no exclusions, a hefty lifetime retirement after decades of fleecing the American people. They follow the money and there will be no immigration reform under this Congress because there is too much money to be made by promoting border chaos. Just ask the CIA.

In a similar vein, how can Google be moving towards owning everything and Congress does nothing? How can the CIA be allowed to extend the war in Afghanistan in favor of perpetuating their heroin business? How can Senator Diane Feinstein enter the Senate as a millionaire and be currently worth over a billion dollars. In principle, the same could be said for Franken, McCain, Warren, Pelosi, Rangel, et al. The fact remains that we are living under a criminal enterprise.

The RICO statutes were created for Congress and the sad part lies in the fact that the American people are to blame. Congress has a 9% approval rating. However, the American people return over 90% of these criminals to office after every election. Oh yes, there are a few good ones (Gosar, Gowdy, Paul, Biggs, etc.), but there aren’t nearly enough to effect any real change.

The RICO statutes were created for the behaviors exibited by Congress, but the odds of prosecuting the more nefarious members of Congress are slim and none, and slim just left town.

SHOCK! Trump asks Congress to LEGALIZE DACA









 






President Trump called on Congress to “legalize” DACA late Tuesday, just hours after his administration announced the repeal of the amnesty for children brought to the country illegally — promising that he will “revisit this issue” if Congress does not turn DACA into legislation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the repeal of the Obama era executive order — known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — both on constitutional grounds and also on principle.

“The effect of this unilateral executive amnesty, among other things, contributed to a surge of unaccompanied minors on the southern border that yielded terrible humanitarian consequences,” Sessions said. “It also denied jobs to hundreds of thousands of Americans by allowing those same jobs to go to illegal aliens.”

The move saw significant opposition from Democrats and voices in the media, while even some Republicans who formerly opposed DACA called for Congress to act to resolve the issue with legislation.

The rollback includes a six-month delay so as to allow Congress to act if it so chose. The White House had expressed hope that the issue could be included as part of a broader immigration legislation package, with Trump tweeting that he hoped to work with Democrats and Republicans for a reform “that puts hardworking citizens of our country 1st.”

But by late Tuesday, Trump appeared to have turned into a paper tiger on the key campaign promise to get rid of DACA, saying he would “revisit this issue” if Congress did not “legalize DACA.”

The tweet appears to be adopting an argument used by many establishment Republicans that posits the problem with DACA was not its substance, but primarily that it was done unilaterally by President Obama, not through Congress.

It is unlikely that Trump’s “America First” base, which supported Trump in part because of his focus on illegal immigration, will be satisfied with anything approaching a repeat of DACA — either by Congress or presidential pen.

Perhaps sensing a possible cave, conservative commentator Ann Coulter tweeted before the announcement that millions of voters “not only won’t vote for [Trump] again, but will never vote Republican again if they pass this DACA amnesty.

President Trump Wants Tax Cuts, But Once Again The RINOs In Congress May Block His Agenda

[9/2/17/ MICHAEL SNYDER]  It has become exceedingly clear that we need to try to remove as many establishment Republicans from Congress as we possibly can in 2018. Even though the Republicans are in control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, the “Make America Great Again” agenda is not being implemented, and the blame for that lies entirely with the RINOs (Republicans in name only). Obamacare still has not been repealed, the wall has not been built, and now there is talk that the RINOs plan to block Trump’s tax reform bill. It was expected that the Democrats would try to obstruct Trump’s agenda, but Trump’s biggest problem so far in his presidency has been his fellow Republicans. If they won’t go along with what he is trying to do, we will kick them out and put in people who will.

On Wednesday, Trump delivered a major speech in which he boldly declared that we have a “once-in-a-generation opportunity” to implement tax reform.

And he is exactly right. The Republicans have not often had simultaneous control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, and so they should be attempting to push through as much of Trump’s agenda as possible.

During his speech, Trump outlined four basic principles that he intends to follow when it comes to tax reform. First of all, he believes that the tax code should be much simpler…

Here are my four principles for tax reform: First, we need a tax code that is simple, fair, and easy to understand. (Applause.) That means getting rid of the loopholes and complexity that primarily benefit the wealthiest Americans and special interests.

This is something that we should all be able to agree with. Right now the tax code is more than 2 million words long, and the regulations add another 7 million words. I once spent an entire year studying tax law, and at the end of that year I came to the conclusion that the best thing that we could do would be to throw the entire tax code in a shredder and start over.

In addition to simplifying things, Trump also wants to implement changes that will create more jobs for U.S. workers…

Second, we need a competitive tax code that creates more jobs and higher wages for Americans. It’s time to give American workers the pay raise that they’ve been looking for for many, many years.

One of the key things that we can do to reach that goal would be to cut the corporate tax rate. As Rand Paul recently noted, cutting the corporate tax rate to 15 percent would likely create about two million new jobs…

Cut the rate so it is competitive with other countries. (15% makes us even with Canada’s federal rate.) Cut the rate so that it can create jobs. Cut the rate to encourage people to start new businesses, hire more people and grow. According to a 2016 Tax Foundation analysis of then-candidate Donald Trump’s tax plan, comprehensive reform, including lowering the corporate rate to 15%, could create around 2 million new jobs.

Thirdly, President Trump wants to make sure that middle class families greatly benefit from any tax cuts…

The third principle for tax reform is a crucial one: tax relief for middle-class families. (Applause.) In a way — and I’ve been saying this for a long time — they’ve been sort of the forgotten people, but they’re not forgotten any longer. I can tell you that. (Applause.)

For years, I have been detailing the demise of the middle class in America. The middle class became a minority of the population for the first time ever in 2015, and each year it continues to shrink.

Cutting taxes on the middle class won’t solve our problems, but it would be a positive step in the right direction.

Lastly, Trump wants to repatriate trillions of dollars that are currently being held offshore by U.S. companies…

Fourth and finally, we want to bring back trillions of dollars in wealth that’s parked overseas. Because of our high tax rate and horrible, outdated, bureaucratic rules, large companies that do business overseas will often park their profits offshore to avoid paying a high United States tax if the money is brought back home. So they leave the money over there.

The amount of money we’re talking about is anywhere from $3 trillion to $5 trillion. Can you believe that? By making it less punitive for companies to bring back this money, and by making the process far less bureaucratic and difficult, we can return trillions and trillions of dollars to our economy and spur billions of dollars in new investments in our struggling communities and throughout our nation.

Personally, I would be in favor of giving companies a limited window to bring all of that money into the country for free. It would potentially be a tremendous boon for the economy, and hopefully President Trump will be able to get this done.

Unfortunately, the establishment Republicans in Congress seem absolutely determined to obstruct what Trump is trying to do every step of the way. This is a point that Rush Limbaugh made very succinctly on his program just the other day

Limbaugh flayed Republican lawmakers for betraying the people who elected them.

“The Republicans have a chance to do everything they said they’d do,” he explained.

They haven’t gotten one thing done legislatively. Tax cuts, the Democrats can’t stop. Folks, they have an opportunity do everything they have been promising to do. A once-in-a-career opportunity. They’re never gonna have this kind of power. And what are they doing? Nothing. In fact, it’s worse than nothing. It appears to outsiders that they are part of the effort to thwart and stop Trump. Do they think this kind of behavior is going to be rewarded with re-election? Do they think that the American voters are gonna blame all of this on Trump and re-elect Republicans and try to get rid of Trump?”

As we approach the mid-term elections in 2018, it is going to be very important for Republican voters to determine who is in the pro-Trump camp and who is in the anti-Trump camp. It simply is not good enough for someone to have an “R” next to their name anymore. We need to send good pro-Trump candidates to Washington, and that is one of the reasons why so many people are getting so excited about my campaign.

And the key is the Republican primaries next spring. Only a small minority of the population votes in primaries, and if we can get pro-Trump forces galvanized, we can kick out a whole bunch of these RINOs.

But if pro-Trump voters don’t support the pro-Trump candidates that are out there, when we get to November 2018 we won’t even have anyone to vote for. Instead, we will be stuck choosing between Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans.

If you have read my new book, then you already know how determined I am to implement the elements of the “Make America Great Again” agenda. If we do nothing, we are going to get more of the same, and that simply is not acceptable. For example, it is being reported that Americans now spend more on taxes than they do on food and clothing combined

Americans on average spent more on taxes in 2016 than they did on food and clothing combined, according to data released this week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The same data also shows that in three years—from 2013 to 2016—the average tax bill for Americans increased 41.13 percent.

In 2016, according to BLS, “consumer units” (which include families, financially independent individuals, and people living in a single household who share expenses) spent more on average on federal, state and local taxes ($10,489) than they did on food ($7,203) and clothing ($1,803) combined ($9,006).

If you like the status quo, then feel free to do nothing.

But if you are sick and tired of the way that things are, please support President Trump and the pro-Trump candidates that are running for office all over the nation. It isn’t going to be easy, but if we work together I believe that we can do some truly remarkable things.

Will Congress and Trump Declare War on WikiLeaks?

[8/31/17/ RON PAUL]  The Senate Intelligence Committee recently passed its Intelligence Authorization Act for 2018 that contains a chilling attack on the First Amendment. Section 623 of the act expresses the “sense of Congress” that WikiLeaks resembles a “non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such.” This language is designed to delegitimize WikiLeaks, encourage the federal government to spy on individuals working with WikiLeaks, and block access to WikiLeaks’ website. This provision could even justify sending US forces abroad to arrest WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange or other WikiLeaks personnel.

WikiLeaks critics claim that the organization’s leaks harm US national security. However, these critics are unable to provide a single specific example of WikiLeaks’ actions harming the American people. WikiLeaks does harm the reputations of government agencies and politicians, however. For example, earlier this year WikiLeaks released information on the CIA’s hacking program. The leaks did not reveal any details on operations against foreign targets, but they did let the American people know how easy it is for the government to hack into their electronic devices.

For the last year, most of the news surrounding WikiLeaks has centered on its leak of emails showing how prominent Democrats worked to undermine Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. In order to deflect attention from these revelations, Democrats, aided by their allies in the media and even some Republicans, promulgated a conspiracy theory blaming the leaks on Russian hackers working to defeat Hillary Clinton. Even though there is no evidence the Russians were behind the leaks, many in both parties are still peddling the “Putin did it” narrative. This aids an effort by the deep state and its allies in Congress and the media to delegitimize last year’s election, advance a new Cold War with Russia, and criminalize WikiLeaks.

If the government is successful in shutting down WikiLeaks by labeling it a “hostile intelligence service,” it will use this tactic to silence other organizations and websites as well. The goal will be to create a climate of fear to ensure no one dares publish the revelations of a future Edward Snowden or Chelsea Manning.

Some have suggested that criticizing police brutality, the surveillance state, the Federal Reserve, or even federal spending aids “hostile foreign powers” by weakening the people’s “trust in government.” This line of reasoning could be used to silence, in the name of “national security,” websites critical of the welfare-warfare state.

By labeling WikiLeaks a “hostile intelligence service” and thus legitimizing government action against the organization, the Senate Intelligence Authorization Act threatens the ability of whistleblowers to inform the public about government misdeeds. It also sets a precedent that could be used to limit other types of free speech.

President Trump should make it clear he will veto any bill giving government new powers to silence organizations like WikiLeaks. If President Trump supports the war on WikiLeaks, after candidate Trump proclaimed his love for WikiLeaks, it will be further proof that he has outsourced his presidency to the deep state.

Congress Quietly Passed a Bill Allowing Warrantless Searches of Homes—Only 1% Opposed It

warrantwarrant

A bill that will allow homes to be searched without a warrant was passed with overwhelming support by the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Trump—and it happened with no media coverage and very little fanfare.

On the surface, House Judiciary Resolution 76 looks harmless. The title of the bill claims that its purpose is Granting the consent and approval of Congress for the Commonwealth of Virginia, the State of Maryland, and the District of Columbia to enter into a compact relating to the establishment of the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission.”

“Whereas the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, an interstate compact agency of the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the State of Maryland, provides transportation services to millions of people each year, the safety of whom is paramount; Whereas an effective and safe Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority system is essential to the commerce and prosperity of the National Capital region; Whereas the Tri-State Oversight Committee, created by a memorandum of understanding amongst these 3 jurisdictions, has provided safety oversight of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.”

The proposal for a safety commission to act as a wing of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority may sound logical, when its power includes thing such as the ability to Adopt, revise, and distribute a written State Safety Oversight Program” and to “Review, approve, oversee, and enforce the adoption and implementation of WMATA’s Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan.”

However, there is one major red flag buried within the text of the bill that stems from the list of “powers” given to the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission, and it violates one of the basic tenants of the U.S. Constitution.

“In performing its duties, the Commission, through its Board or designated employees or agents, may: Enter upon the WMATA Rail System and, upon reasonable notice and a finding by the chief executive officer that a need exists, upon any lands, waters, and premises adjacent to the WMATA Rail System, including, without limitation, property owned or occupied by the federal government, for the purpose of making inspections, investigations, examinations, and testing as the Commission may deem necessary to carry out the purposes of this MSC Compact, and such entry shall not be deemed a trespass.”

The text gives the Commission the authority to enter property near the Metro Rail System “without limitation” and without a warrant, for the purpose of “making inspections, investigations, examinations, and testing.”

This clearly goes against the Fourth Amendment, which states that Americans’ rights to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause.”

When the bill was brought to a vote in the House of Representatives, there were only five Congressmen who voted against it: Representatives Justin Amash, a Republican from Michigan; Walter Jones, a Republican from North Carolina; Thomas Massie, a Republican from Kentucky; Alex Mooney, a Republican from West Virginia; and Mark Sanford, a Republican from South Carolina.

Amash called out the hypocrisy surrounding the fact that even though this legislation is in clear violation of the Constitution, it was passed by Congress with overwhelming support. Only 5 of us voted against bill allowing govt to enter/search private property in parts of VA, MD & DC w/o warrant,” He wrote on Twitter.

This is not the first time Congress has quietly passed a bill that will take away some of the most basic rights from law-abiding citizens in the U.S., and it won’t be the last. One of the most important things to remember about this legislation is that it was ignored by the media, and while it may only affect the Washington D.C. metro area now, it could be laying the blueprint for future legislation across the country.
