An Early Christmas Present

Christmas PresentWhat do you give a billionaire who has everything and is running for president.

The Omnibus spending bill in Congress is over 2,000 pages and spends another $1.1 trillion we don’t have. A handful of members of Congress and their staffs, the White House and insider lobbyists wrote it over the past six weeks, and outside this small circle, no one had seen it until Wednesday.

In other words, business-as-usual in Washington again. Merry Christmas, Donald Trump.

Americans are sick and tired of the way Washington operates. Outsiders like Trump, Cruz, Carson and Paul are polling at two-thirds of the Republican presidential primary voters. Regardless of how reliable you believe the polling is, there is no doubt: Republicans voters are looking to change the Washington status quo.

In 2014, Americans entrusted Republicans with Senate and House majorities to stop the Obama agenda, but Republicans refused to get in the driver’s seat of Congress. Instead, they offer this back-room, bloated bill to hike spending by another $50 Billion. It is strongly supported by Obama, Pelosi, and Reid – and strongly opposed by nearly every major segment of the Republican Party. Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Trey Gowdy Grills Planned Parenthood’s President Cecile Richards Ferociously!

Published on Sep 29, 2015 by LatestNews:

There are few things more entertaining than watching the brilliant Trey Gowdy use his rhetorical skills to interrogate those on the left and tear them to shreds.

In this video from this afternoon’s congressional testimony on defunding Planned Parenthood, the GOWD gets president Cecile Richards to admit that she has no problem with abortions done to target a specific gender, or a race.

The question comes at the 3 minute mark, and Cecile stumbles over her answer, but responds that Planned Parenthood is totally cool with abortions that might are made on the basis of killing a girl just because it’s a girl, as they do in China, or because the baby is undesirable because of its race. Pretty despicable.

It appears that Ms. Richards has had a busy career. She is the daughter of former Texas governor, the late Ann Richards. She and her husband, Kirk Adams both worked for the AFL-CIO and she was Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) deputy chief of staff. She has also been involved with other progressive groups. It’s safe to say that she has had lots of experience that prepared her for her current position at PPOA. About Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards.

Mark Levin: Hillary Clinton in Violation of Espionage Act

Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practise to deceive! – Sir Walter Scott

It seems that more comes out about Hillary Clinton’s private email server every day. I wonder how can Hillary and her campaign survive with all these revelations? Perhaps the more important question is: How can our Republic survive if she does?

Last night on Hannity, legal expert Mark Levin made the case that Hillary Clinton’s mere possession of information relating to the national defense on a unsecure private server places her in violation of the Espionage Act. Levin believes there is overwhelming evidence to appoint a Special Prosecutor and impanel a Grand Jury. Here’s an excerpt of the transcript:

Mark Levin:  There’s one law in particular that matters. And I want to read this, it will take a short time but I wanna make sure James Carville and Lanny Davis can understand what I’m saying. Section 793 of the federal penal code: “…Whowever being entrusted with, or having lawful possession of “ they didn’t say send or receive “…unlawful possession or control of any information relating to the national defense…” I’ll get to the rest later Remember she said “I never received a single thing marked classified.” That would be bad enough. It doesn’t have to be marked anything if it is relating to the national defense. I’m reading from the Espionage Act. Through gross negligence. That is she didn’t have to have specific knowledge or intent. Gross negligence permits the “same to be removed from its proper place of custody court delivered to anyone in violation of his trust or to be lost on abstract or destroyed…” and there’s a fine. this is a felony statute. Now Sean, the US Attorney General hasn’t said a damn thing. There ought to be a grand jury impaneled, glad the criminal side of the FBI is investigating – It’s not enough. Where’s the US Attorney General? Silent, not a word. We had special prosecutors appointed on a hell of a lot less than this. Where’s the special prosecutor? Where’s Obama in appointing it? Nowhere. The United States Justice Department under this president is in full cover-up mode. Probably some civil servant patriotic FBI agents are pushing and trying to do something, but this requires a full comprehensive investigation, gathering all the evidence, bringing in all these staffers. Yes bringing in Hillary Clinton in front of a grand jury without a lawyer questioning her and getting to the bottom of this. Look, this is not an email scandal, Hillary Clinton threw our national security on the table for all our enemies to see.

Hannity speaks briefly:  So that any issue or information related to defense and you talk about 18 USC 793 the Espionage Act. So by definition, satellite images of North Korea’s nuclear facilities, which we know we’re in these emails, that would in my mind classify as a violation of that act. And that’s only one example of what might turn out to be many. Again 33,000 of these emails were erased, You know can we hopefully we can retrieve some of them right?

Mark Levin: Well if the law is enforced properly in my humble opinion and is Hillary Clinton is the putative democratic nominee and wins the presidency, she would be serving the presidency from Leavenworth quite frankly. There are multiple examples just from Edge report, just from public information out there. The idea that we’re even debating whether or not she violated the law. You’ll hear her supporters say where’s the evidence. And I say we’re not only overwhelmed with all the evidence, I say where is the grand jury? Why isn’t there a grand jury? Where the hell is the US Attorney in the District of Columbia?

Charlie Daniels – An Open Letter to President Obama

Charlie Daniels Soap Box

I have read several open letters to President Obama over the years. Below is one from Charlie Daniels. Do you agree with him?

By Charlie Daniels – June 8, 2015

Dear Mr. President,

This letter is not written in a spirit of hate, disrespect, nor is it motivated in any way by racial bias and is written with respect due the office and the awesome tasks that have been laid on your shoulders.

I write this letter because I am a tax paying American citizen who has experienced the American Dream and wants his children and grandchildren to have the same advantages and opportunities that he has had.

And no, Mr. President, I was not born into a one-percenter family, I come from a blue collar background, never went to college, have made a living doing manual labor and went into my chosen profession at ground level, worked hard and sacrificed to achieve success.

On April 13, 1967 I arrived in Nashville, Tennessee with a wife, a two-year-old baby, a twenty-dollar bill and the clutch out of my car.

I won’t go into the mountains and valleys that I’ve traveled since then except to say that I have been successful and somebody did help me build the business I own. Almighty God, not the government.

I employ thirty people, good citizens and family people, hard-working people, the kind of gun-clinging, God-fearing folks who make America the greatest nation the world has ever known.

Mr. President, it seems to me that you have little faith in American ingenuity, American capability, American exceptionalism and even American patriotism.

You seem to think that America needs a monolithic, big brother type government to oversee and regulate every aspect of American life, that citizens are not competent to control their own affairs and make their own decisions without some oppressive bureaucracy to call the shots.

Mr. President, the answer is not government, conversely, the problem is government. A government that has doubled the national debt, increased unemployment, lowered take home pay, increased food stamp participation and disability claims and introduced socialized medicine.

You support teacher’s unions which take political activism more seriously than education.

You intentionally lied to the American people about your stand on marriage being between a man and woman, and continue to lie when it is politically expedient for you to do so.

You surround yourself with inexperienced ideologues and political yes men and take the advice of individuals who are swimming in waters way too deep for them.

Your petulance is unbecoming, Mr. President, and your criticism of anyone who disagrees with you is downright unmanly. You come off like a spoiled child who has been denied his way.

And while you blame your shortcomings on opposing political parties, you had both houses of Congress and the White House in the first two years of your term. Plus an electoral mandate to do just about anything you wanted to, so the least you can do is cowboy up and take the blame for the messes you’ve made.

Your apparent disregard for the maintenance and morale of our armed services is extremely unwise and dangerous.

Mr. President, the office you hold is not a place for the faint of heart and when you draw a red line you’d dang well better be willing to back it up, because when you don’t every tyrant and despot in this world takes it for a sign of weakness and will take advantage, Putin and China being a prime example.

In making any kind of deal with Iran you spit in the face of Israel and plant the seeds of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.

The last report showed that the US economy actually shrunk by .07% while the national debt and other obligations grow by the day.

No matter how many apologists come forth and no matter how much double talk you and the puppets who speak for you come up with, the greatest nation the world has ever known is losing a war with a small army of criminals and thugs that grows bigger every day simply because you don’t have the guts to face the problem.

You’re running out of diversions Mr. President, sleight of hand political policies eventually stop working and lies finally float to the top of water.

Time is running out for you Mr. President and the horrible thing about it is that time is running out for America too.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

Catherine Engelbrecht Testifies in the Loretta Lynch Confirmation Hearing

TRUE THE VOTE THIS WEEK…

TTV Takes to Capitol Hill This Week
True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary this morning, regarding the potential confirmation of U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch for the position of Attorney General. Engelbrecht’s goal was to raise awareness to the DOJ’s failure to adequately and fairly investigate the abuses carried out by the Internal Revenue Service. Engelbrecht urged the Senate to consider Lynch’s confirmation carefully and ensure the American People that she can bring the reforms to the Department that it so seriously requires.
In a 2009 speech, General Holder called America ‘a nation of cowards.’ If you remember nothing else from my comments, remember this – I am not a coward, I am not a victim, I am a messenger for all those Americans who love our country, love our fellow countrymen, and pray for a better tomorrow. I am here to say our country is, right now, at a tipping point. We have replaced rule of law with moral relativism; we have replaced truth with political correctness; in all the double speak and double think we have become increasingly unsteady about how We the People factor in to a future left in the hands of our current leaders.”

Benji Backer – Defending the American Dream Summit 2013

Conservative teenager fearlessly takes on the left.

Benji Backer is from Madison, Wisconsin. At fifteen Benji has already done in more conservative activism and has experienced more harassment and retribution from the progressive left than most people will in a lifetime.  As a high school freshman, Benji talked to his classmates about how governor Scott Walker’s reforms were working and saving people money.  As you will see in this moving video, his life has never been the same again.

AFL-CIO: We Will ‘Steamroller’ Any Lawmaker Who Opposes Amnesty

A principal official at the AFL-CIO, one of America’s biggest labor unions, said Wednesday the organization would politically demolish any politician who opposes mass amnesty for the country’s at least 11 million illegal immigrants.

“Politicians know that if they stand in the way of citizenship we will steamroller them,” AFL-CIO director of immigration Ana Avendaño said, according to the Financial Times. “That’s a fun evolution.”  Continue reading on Breitbart.com.
