Ruining Football: New England Democrats’ Votes for Schumer Shutdown Cancel Military Jet Flyover at Patriots-Jaguars AFC Championship Game

Note: I disagree with the first two words of the above headline, “RUINING FOOTBALL.” In my view,  football, at least the NFL version, has already been ruined by the protests of our National Anthem, etc., carried out by childish millionaire players and supported by league officials  – ADB.

The U.S. military will not conduct a jet flyover above the AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday because Democrats voted to shut down the government, the Boston Globe reports.

“A striking casualty of the budget impasse will be the empty skies in Foxborough as the New England Patriots take the field for their game Sunday afternoon: Four fighter jets that had been expected to fly over the stadium just before the game were grounded by the shutdown, said Lieutenant Colonel Lisa Ahaesy, spokeswoman for the Massachusetts National Guard,” the Boston Globe reported on Sunday.

The reason why they will not fly over the stadium, as is tradition, is of course because Senate Democrats refused to vote for a bipartisan funding bill that contains nothing they oppose. This particular consequence—the canceling of F-15 fighter jet flyover—is directly because of a half dozen or more Democrats who represent New England areas and Florida, the home state of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Massachusetts’ two Democrat senators, Sens. Liz Warren (D-MA) and Ed Markey (D-MA), both voted for the government shutdown by voting against the bipartisan House-passed government funding bill late Friday night. So did Rhode Island’s two Democrat Sens. Jack Reed (D-RI) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI). As did New Hampshire’s two Democratic Sens. Maggie Hassan (D-NH) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH)—and Connecticut’s two Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Chris Murphy (D-CT). Maine Independent Sen. Angus King, a leftist who caucuses with Democrats, voted for the shutdown against the funding bill on Friday as well. Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders, a leftist who also caucuses with Democrats, also voted against keeping the government open as did his fellow Vermonter Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT). If each of those New England senators voted with their Republican and Democrat colleagues for the government funding bill, the government would be open right now as the bill needed 60 votes to pass per current U.S. Senate rules.

RIP: Weather Channel Founder John Coleman Dies – Called Global Warming a ‘Hoax’

 

Coleman: ‘When the temperature data could no longer be bent to support global warming, they switched to climate change and now blame every weather and climate event on CO2 despite the hard, cold fact that the “radiative forcing” theory they built their claims on has totally failed to verify.’

‘The current bad science is all based on a theory that the increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from the exhaust of the burning of fossil fuels leads to a dramatic increase in “the greenhouse effect” causing temperatures to skyrocket uncontrollably. This theory has failed to verify and is obviously dead wrong. But the politically funded and agenda driven scientists who have built their careers on this theory and live well on the 2.6 billion dollars of year of Federal grants for global warming/climate change research cling to this theory and bend the data spread to support the glorified claims in their reports and papers.’ climatedepot.com

Hello,

Thank you for taking a moment to allow us to introduce ourselves. We are, two young women who have grown up hearing about the benefits of single member districts.

We’ve been pushed our whole lives to recognize and value all the advantages we’ve been given in this country, and we’ve been taught the importance of giving back to our community.

For that reason, we are trying to give the people of Alachua County a voice. We are trying to give people the chance to finally say, once and for all, yes or no to single member districts, which is the concept that your County commissioner should live in your district and only be voted on by people in your district.

We need your help. We need 18,000 registered Alachua County voters to sign our petition to give the people a voice. Will you help us?  Will you sign the petition attached to this email and mail it back to us?

Will you ask a friend to sign a petition? Will you ask a neighbor? Your signature on this petition does not constitute a vote, it only helps get the question of single member districts added to the ballot in 2018.

Will you help us give the people a voice in this County?

We’re interested in how they would finally vote. Are you?  All you have to do to find out is sign a petition.

Pinellas Sheriff, Feds Announce Changes to Controversial Immigrant Detention Policy

Seventeen Florida counties have already opted in. Alachua County is not one of them.

.

LARGO — For years, county sheriffs in the United States have faced a quandary when asked by federal officials to hold undocumented immigrants in their local jails.

They could continue to hold them for up to two days past the time they were legally free to leave, giving U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcements officers time to pick them up. But that would open the sheriffs to civil rights lawsuits.

They could release the detainee before ICE arrived. But that risked putting someone in the country illegally back on the streets.

On Wednesday, a top federal immigration official stood alongside Tampa Bay area sheriffs to announce what he said is a workaround for sheriffs who want to cooperate with ICE.

The new protocol calls for ICE to send a booking form that transfers custody of the detainees from the local jail to federal immigration authorities, said ICE Deputy Director Thomas Homan. Continue reading at tampabay.com.

‘Worse Than Watergate’: ‘Shocking’ House Intel Memo Allegedly Reveals FISA Abuse by Senior DOJ and FBI Officials

By Kristina Wong

Members of the House on Thursday said they viewed a “shocking” classified memo allegedly detailing abuse of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by senior Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigations officials in relation to the investigation of the Trump campaign and called for it to be declassified and available to the public immediately.

“It’s troubling. It is shocking,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Fox News. “Part of me wishes that I didn’t read it because I don’t want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.”

“The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency. There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy,” said Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), a member of the Judiciary Committee, which oversees the DOJ and the FBI.

Another Judiciary Committee member, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), called what he saw in the memo “sickening” and said it was “worse than Watergate.”

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), another Judiciary Committee member, called the memo “deeply troubling” and said it raises questions about the “Obama DOJ and Comey FBI.”

“The classified report compiled by House Intelligence is deeply troubling and raises serious questions about the upper echelon of the Obama DOJ and Comey FBI as it relates to the so-called collusion investigation,” he tweeted.

“You think about, ‘is this happening in America or is this the KGB?’ That’s how alarming it is,” Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) told Fox News.

“It is so alarming the American people have to see this,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), a senior member of the Judiciary Committee, also said to network.

The viewing of the memo came after all Republican members of the House intelligence committee, whose investigators compiled the classified memo, voted Thursday to make it available to all House members. Every Democrat on the committee voted against it.

According to Gaetz, the memo’s contents could lead to the firing — and perhaps even jailing — of senior DOJ and FBI officials.

Why We Are a Republic, Not a Democracy

“A democracy is two wolves and a small lamb voting on what to have for dinner. Freedom under a Constitutional Republic is a well armed lamb contesting the vote.” – Benjamin Franklin

The Founding Fathers designed a system that places heavy checks on the power of the majority. (Photo: iStock Photos)

 

Hillary Clinton blamed the Electoral College for her stunning defeat in the 2016 presidential election in her latest memoirs, “What Happened.”

Some have claimed that the Electoral College is one of the most dangerous institutions in American politics.

Why? They say the Electoral College system, as opposed to a simple majority vote, distorts the one-person, one-vote principle of democracy because electoral votes are not distributed according to population.

To back up their claim, they point out that the Electoral College gives, for example, Wyoming citizens disproportionate weight in a presidential election.

Put another way, Wyoming, a state with a population of about 600,000, has one member in the House of Representatives and two members in the U.S. Senate, which gives the citizens of Wyoming three electoral votes, or one electoral vote per 200,000 people.

California, our most populous state, has more than 39 million people and 55 electoral votes, or approximately one vote per 715,000 people.

Comparatively, individuals in Wyoming have nearly four times the power in the Electoral College as Californians.

Many people whine that using the Electoral College instead of the popular vote and majority rule is undemocratic. I’d say that they are absolutely right. Not deciding who will be the president by majority rule is not democracy.

>>> Liberals Claim Electoral College Is Biased. Here Are the Facts.

But the Founding Fathers went to great lengths to ensure that we were a republic and not a democracy. In fact, the word democracy does not appear in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or any other of our founding documents. Continue reading at dailysignal.com.

Judge Jeanine – Trump’s Transparency is What Sets Him Apart

On Saturday’s Justice With Judge Jeanine, Judge Pirro talks about how the Never Trumpers who are now simply the Trump Haters since the previous moniker didn’t work, constantly use the President’s transpaencey and lack of political correctness to try to destroy him. She especially focused on Hollywood actors, who have many opportunities (takes) to get their lines right, and compared them to real (normal) people who don’t have the luxury of constant do-overs.

Here is the full video and the complete transcript of her opening statement:

 

The difference between President Trump and other presidents is his transparency. No political correctness, no talking out of both sides of his mouth, but instead a hard-nosed what you see is what you get successful negotiator.

But no, rather than applaud him for that transparency, the president’s haters would rather take him down, preferring to get in the way of our economic success and international strength. Their hatred of this man is so all-consuming, that they would rather obstruct and resist dooming us to failure because they do not like his transparency. Now I want to be clear. It’s not the transparency but the hatred, so intense that puts us in danger. Hatred like this:

The Judge plays a video clip of actor Robert De Nero ranting:

Today the world is suffering from the real Donald Trump. Come on, let’s go, what are we talking about? De Nero then has to coax applause out of the audience. Let’s clap for that. This muffled expletive idiot is the president. The guy is a bleeped expletive, fool. Come on. Our government today with the prompting of our baby-in-chief has been bleeped expletive-chief I call him.

This little bonus clip shows Comedian Dennis Miller talking about Robert De Niro on Fox Business.


The Judge returns:

Did you notice how he had to read everything? That the only time this guy could lift his eyes off the page was to curse. And then there’s Chelsea Handler, who just this week weaponized a person’s alleged sexual preference by tweeting something aimed at President Trump and a Republican Senator in that DACA meeting. It was so vile and homophobic that I won’t lower

myself to show it to you. And by the way, since when do sexual preferences matter to Hollywood?

And Sean Penn, this week he called the president an enemy of the state and an enemy of mankind. Somewhat screwed, up since he immortalized Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan dictator accused of so many human rights violations. Hey Sean, when did you stop beating your wife? That’s a rhetorical question of course. These Hollywood celebrities are so full of hate they would rather our nation fail so that they can blame it on the president.

These Hollywood hypocrites now trying to be the voices of moral indignity were complicit in their silence of the Harvey Weinstein casting couch and the sexual predatory behavior the open secret in this den of iniquity. And by the way, what makes their opinions so valuable? These actors have little if any responsibility, liability or consequence for their performances. They have a bloated sense of self-worth compared to us who might be lucky enough to be the same pay scale. Their megaphones are in no way commensurate with their morality, or their contributions to society. We’re real people and real people in the real world do not get a redo, 20 takes every day to make something right. In short actors are nothing more than people pretending to be other people.

My own daughter took acting lessons for almost a decade, when at 16 she announced she did not want to act. Stunned I said why? She said: “I don’t want to say something that someone else wants me to say. I want the words that come out of my mouth to be mine.” That from a 16 year old.

And yet these people were silent. These Hollywood hypocrites when their own ideologue was in office. Where was their outrage when Barack Obama was sending millions of dollars to Iran on unmarked pallets and unmarked planes for the release of terrorists? When this president on his last day in office gave 221 million dollars to the PLO, and then 4 million dollars to Palestinians, to study climate change? Where was their outrage when this administration, Obama’s thwarted a US international drug operation called Project Cassandra where Hezbollah, an arm of Iran was engaging in drug trafficking to United States and killing Americans, so that Obama could then dance with the devil in Iran, and send them a 150 billion dollars?

Where was Hollywood’s outrage when the president allowed the sale of 20% of our uranium used by others to make nuclear bombs and moly-99 for nuclear medical imaging, to be sold to the Russians with a payback of hundreds of millions going to the Clintons? What was it, what was in it for Obama for his silence? And where was the outrage when Obama couldn’t stop apologizing for America’s alleged sins?

Instead our president, the man who improves our economy, reduces unemployment, brings the stock market to historic highs, passes tax reform already adding two million dollars to our economy, building up the military, eliminates the individual mandate and in spite of being an accused racist, has brought black unemployment, heightened under 8 years of an African-American president, to record lows?

So to the actors and the haters out there: Put a lid on it! Real people, not actors, not ideologues, elected Donald Trump president. Real people, the ones who only get one take to provide for their families. Your voices don’t compare to the voices of the forgotten men and women, who live a normal hard-working life, who heard Donald Trump and figured they had nothing to lose after Barack Obama, took a chance and bought into his lack of political correctness and his transparity, transparency and are now benefiting from it.

And that’s my open. Tell me what you think on my Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram, hashtag JudgeJeanine.

It’s Begun – Associate in Hillary Clinton Uranium One Russian Bribery Case Indicted

An 11-count indictment has been handed down from a grand jury investigating possible Russian bribery involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Uranium One deal negotiated when she was part of the Obama administration, a report says.

The indictment was levied against Maryland resident Mark Lambert, a former co-president of a nuclear transportation company involved in Hillary Clinton’s deal to sell U.S. uranium interests to a Russian company. A Department of Justice statement says that the 54-year-old Lambert was charged with “one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering.”

The statement added:

The charges stem from an alleged scheme to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation and the sole supplier and exporter of Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide, in order to secure contracts with TENEX.

The charges come on the heels of an eight-year investigation into the sale of Uranium One to the Russian company. The sale was completed in 2013.

Peter Schweizer, Government Accountability Institute president and Breitbart News senior editor-at-large, broke the Uranium One scandal in his book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. Continue reading at breitbart.com.
