Trump’s PATCO Moment

Trump’s PATCO Moment: Emanating Reagan, the President Takes Control of Federal Government to ‘Protect the Country and Its Citizens’

President Donald Trump’s firing of a politically motivated official—now-former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, for her refusal to enforce the laws of the nation and carry out the administration’s policy—harkens back to a previous president who faced a similar crisis at the beginning of his administration.

CNN has been framing this in its lower-third chyron throughout the evening as “the Monday Night Massacre”—a reference to President Richard Nixon’s firing of both his Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General when they refused to get rid of a special prosecutor who was investigating him—with the intent to paint Trump as an off-the-rails tyrant. But even Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein, appearing on CNN late Monday night, rejected the comparison his own network CNN was making to the Nixon administration’s “Saturday Night Massacre.”

“There’s a big difference, because the Saturday Night Massacre was really about firing the attorney general when Nixon was the target of an investigation and was actively obstructing justice,” Bernstein said. “I think the president is within his rights here to fire the attorney general, that he has that ability.”

The reference that is much more accurate in this case is a reference to a different previous GOP president, an outsider battling to gain control of the federal government in his early days in office. Former White House political director Jeffrey Lord, who served under President Ronald Reagan, told Breitbart News that this matches Reagan’s battles with the bureaucracy at the beginning of his administration.

“I remember vividly when President Reagan fired the air traffic controllers—the PATCO union which had endorsed him as a candidate—in 1981,” Lord said in an email. “All of Washington was saying this was a mistake. He did it anyway, totally violating the Washington political and media elite conventional wisdom of the day. Kudos to President Trump for doing the 21st century version of Reagan’s bold firing to uphold principle. Elites will hate it but Americans will love it. More to the point they will get it.”

Back when President Reagan first took office, in the spring of 1981 while he was still recovering from the failed assassination attempt by John Hinckley, his Transportation Secretary Drew Lewis informed him that the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization (PATCO) planned to strike.

It’s Time for Gays to Come Home to Republican Party

Orlando Pulse Club Massacre

Orlando Pulse

By Jim Hoft:

Early Sunday morning, Islamic extremist Omar Mateen murdered at least 49 people at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Mateen, of Fort Pierce, Florida, was interviewed by the FBI in 2013 and 2014 after he told coworkers he had ties to Islamic extremists. But Mateen was not found to be a threat, the FBI said, so he dropped off their radar.

A former coworker said company officials refused to investigate Omar’s frequent racist and homophobic attacks “because he was Muslim.” So, once again, political correctness is linked to another Islamist massacre.

Omar Mateen took time out during his mass slaughter of gays at Pulse nightclub to call 911 and pledge his allegiance to ISIS. Then he ended the call and killed some more gays.

And it should be noted that Omar Mateen cased other gay clubs before he decided to kill gays at The Pulse on Latino night.

After the deadliest Islamist attack on American soil since 9-11 Barack Obama blamed hatred and guns. His inability to called[sic] the attack what it is – Islamic jihad – has progressed from denial to psychosis. It’s never been more apparent than Sunday, when Barack was comparing the Pulse club attack to a movie theater shooting by a schizophrenic, that our poor president has lost his own grasp of reality (Bold text mine).

Obama was not the only one. Leftwing gay activists posted ridiculous and ignorant remarks after the deadliest single attack on gays in modern history. Continue reading at Breitbart.com.  Warning:  Some graphic text follows.

Et tu Delegates (Donald Trump Must Beware of Trojan Horse Delegates)

Trump Trojan Horse

A state party staffer from a large Northeastern state passed the entry codes for a conference call of five Republican chairmen from significant states this past Saturday. The topic on the table? Stopping Donald Trump. I had to listen in.

These hard-boiled pols know the nomination will be decided not on the first ballot, but in a series of procedural votes by the entire convention to adopt the rules of the convention as recommended by the Rules Committee and the seating of the delegates as recommended by the Credentials Committee. Those key committees are made up by two members from each state. The bosses have been quietly planting establishment regulars in these spots.

The Trump camp has been inattentive to this process. The party kingmakers may have the votes to knee-cap Trump in the rules and credentials committees, as they did Congressman Ron Paul in 2012.

The kingmakers have planned to steal the nod from Donald Trump.

Now they party insiders want to make sure they have a working majority on the floor for the passage of their “license to steal.” Republican state chairs are planting Trojan Horse delegates into slots won by Trump on the first ballot to vote with them on procedural votes to pass the Rules and Credentials Reports that will seal the “Big Steal.” This is going on in Texas, New York, Massachusetts, Michigan, Connecticut, North Dakota, and other states. continue reading at breitbart.com.

UPDATE: NatGeo Consultant Sends ‘Cease and Desist’ Demand, Claims She Was Fired After Breitbart Reports Project Veritas Common Core Exposé

Cease and DesistA textbook company sales executive exposed in a Project Veritas undercover video revealing the Common Core initiative’s political bias and anti-American agenda, sent Breitbart News a “cease and desist” demand over our reporting on the investigation, claiming she has been terminated from her job.

On Friday, Kim Koerber, a sales consultant with National Geographic and a former executive for textbook publishing giant Pearson Education, a Common Core textbook publisher, sent Breitbart News the following:

CEASE AND DESIST ORDER:

You are hereby directed to immediately remove the January 21st article titled “Former Pearson Exec reveals anti-American Agenda in Common Core” from your website and other places it may be located.  I was videotaped without my knowledge, and this misrepresents what I said that day.

This article has caused me to be terminated from my job.  I have a lawyer, and if it is not immediately removed, I will persist in legal action.

I expect to hear from you immediately regarding this order.

Breitbart News telephoned and emailed National Geographic on Tuesday in an attempt to confirm Koerber’s claim that she was terminated, but was informed that the offices of National Geographic are closed – presumably due to the east coast snowstorm. Continue reading this article here.

Texas Grand Jury Indicts Makers of Planned Parenthood Baby Parts Videos, Lets Butchers Slide

The Scales of Justice Are Broken

Scale of Justice

By Austin Ruse  *  January 25, 2016  (See video below)

Pro-life activist David Daleiden had hoped a Grand Jury in Texas would indict Planned Parenthood executives for dealing in aborted baby parts. Instead he and a colleague have been indicted by a Grand Jury in Houston for actions they took in exposing the Planned Parenthood baby-parts business.

Nucatola

Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson investigated Planned Parenthood and gave them a clean bill of health. They then indicted Daleiden, in a complete surprise to Daleiden supporters.

This turn of affairs happened today in Harris County Texas where Daleiden, founder and president of the Center for Medical Progress, and his colleague Sandra Merritt were indicted for felony tampering with a government record. The specifics of that charge and official record were not revealed. He was also indicted for a misdemeanor charge of buying fetal tissue.

A warrant was issued for Daleiden on Monday evening. Continue reading at breitbart.com.

’13 Hours’ Review: Riveting Indictment of Obama, Hillary, and The DC Media

Now playing at: Regal Cinemas, Butler Plaza
13 Hours

by John Nolte * Jan 2016

Director Michael Bay’s riveting, heartbreaking, and infuriating “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” opens with five simple words:  “This Is a True Story.” What it should have read was, “This Is a True Story The Media Has Covered Up For Years.”

God damn these people to Hell. (Bold type: Mine)

Let me start things off by pointing and laughing at George Clooney, Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Tim Robbins, John Cusack, Leonardo Di Caprio, Paul Greengrass, Matt Damon, and Paul Haggis — all of whom made films critical of a sitting president’s foreign policy that ended up being, not only box office catastrophes, but creative embarrassments; completely forgettable, preachy, pedantic, just plain lousy movies no one will ever see again.

Now I have even worse news for them… Continue reading at Breitbart.com.

Michelle Malkin: ‘My Base Is Fed Up with Fox’ News Channel; Murdoch ‘Treacherous Bedfellow’ 10

rupmalk-640x480

From Gabriel Sherman, writing in New York Magazine:

For the past two decades, Rupert Murdoch allowed Fox News chief Roger Ailes to occupy one of the most unique — and powerful — perches in American politics and media: running a right-wing political operation under the guise of a 24-hour news network. As long as the profits rolled in, Murdoch virtually never meddled in Ailes’s world — even when his own family protested. “He lets me run it, he doesn’t bother me much,” Ailes boasted of Murdoch as recently as April 2015. But that laissez-faire era seems to be over.

According to four high-placed Fox sources, Murdoch is upping his presence at Fox while Ailes has become less visible to anchors and producers, signaling a shift that marks a new chapter in the network’s history. The most visible change is that, since June, Murdoch has been attending Ailes’s daily executive meeting held on the second floor of Fox headquarters. The secretive afternoon gathering in Ailes’s conference room is attended by about a half-dozen of the network’s most senior lieutenants. It’s where some of the most sensitive decisions about running the channel are discussed. Continue reading at Breitbart.com.

Ted Yoho Joins the Push to Censure Obama Over Executive Actions on Gun Control

Way to Go, Ted!

tedyohobarackobama-sunshinestatenews From Sunshine State News * By Kevin Derby * January 8, 2016 – 9:45am

A Florida congressman is going to bat for a measure censuring President Barack Obama on his executive action on gun control and other matters.

Noting censure resolutions had been brought out against Presidents Andrew Jackson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., introduced the resolution this week.

“For seven years, the president has gradually expanded his powers through executive overreach,” Palazzo said. “His actions this week to take away the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens is just the latest, if not most egregious, violation of the separation of powers found in the United States Constitution. Congress must go on record to stand up as an equal branch of government – both against this president and any future president who attempts to use his authority to write the law instead of enforce the law.

“The American people demand that we fight back against this president’s overreach, and this is the best way we can fight and win,’ Palazzo added.

U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., announced on Thursday he was backing the censure effort. (Bold type, mine – ADB)

“The recent executive overreach by President Obama – against the Second Amendment – is in direct violation of his sworn oath of office,’ Yoho said. “Seven years ago he placed his hand on the Bible and said, ‘I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.’‘ On numerous occasions, he has failed to live up to this oath.  Continue reading at sunshinestatenews.com.

Asleep at the Switch? Hillary Late Returning to Debate

From Latest Political News:

During the ABC News Democratic Debate on Saturday night, party frontrunner Hillary Clinton was apparently not alerted as to when to return to the debate stage after the event’s first commercial break. While debate moderators David Muir and Martha Raddatz of ABC News attempted to continue the conversation, only Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley were on the stage.

Muir made note coming back from commercial that Clinton was missing; as the opening question turned to Senator Sanders, a rousing applause — perhaps one of sarcasm? — rippled through the crowd as Clinton returned to her podium. Clinton simply said into the microphone, “Sorry”.

“We believe Secretary Clinton will be coming around the corner any minute,” stalled the moderator Muir. The question for Sanders dealt with the rising salaries of corporate CEOs, but Clinton’s late arrival on stage stole the focus of the moment.

One can only wonder why Ms. Clinton was so late returning from the break. Did she simply forget, was it a residual effect of her previous illness and concussion or maybe Bill Belichick let the air out of her tires. Perhaps Muir should have used the phrase coming around rather than coming around the corner.
