Carefully Considering Trump's Appointments

Forums:

Paul Craig Roberts gives some deep insight into the administration appointments that will help us understand what's going on.  Excerpts from a "must read" article:

We do not know what the appointments mean except, as Trump discovered once he confronted the task of forming a government, that there is no one but insiders to appoint. For the most part, that is correct. Outsiders are a poor match for insiders who tend to eat them alive. Ronald Reagan’s California crew were a poor match for George H.W. Bush’s insiders. The Reagan part of the government had a hell of a time delivering results that Reagan wanted.

Another limit on a president’s ability to form a government is Senate confirmation of presidential appointees. Whereas Congress is in Republican hands, Congress remains in the hands of special interests who will protect their agendas from hostile potential appointees. Therefore, although Trump does not face partisan opposition from Congress, he faces the power of special interests that fund congressional political campaigns.

The problem with beating up on an administration before it exists and has a record is that the result can be that the administration becomes deaf to all criticism. It is much better to give the new president a chance and to hold his feet to the fire on the main issues.

House Minority Leader Pelosi Attacks “Unqualified” Ben Carson as Next Director of HUD

Forums:

Democratic House Leader Nancy Pelosi released a statement Monday attacking Dr. Ben Carson as the new HUD director under President Trump.

Pelosi called Carson, the former Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Maryland, “disturbingly unqualified” for the job.
Sounds racist.  http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/12/house-minority-leader-nancy-pelosi-attacks-unqualified-ben-carson-next-director-hud/

BREAKING! FISA Warrant Issued: To Tap Phones, Email, Work, Of ALL Electors In The 50 STATES!

Forums:

THIS IS HUGE !!!

A Wiretap Warrant has been issued by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court, enabling federal law enforcement to tap all telephone and email communications to and from ELECTORS in all 50 states, who will cast their state Electoral Votes on December 19.  The votes will be cast in the Capitol of each state.

The FBI, acting on claims of foreign interference in the November election, obtained the warrant fourteen days ago on November 18, and have been tapping the home, work and cellular phones of Electors from all 50 states, including their e-mailcommunications!

While our sources inside the FBI would not say whether they intercepted any effort by a foreign government to influence the Electors, the sources DID confirm that they have uncovered a "criminal conspiracy" to have Electors intentionally violate various state laws by casting their Ballots against the popular vote in those states.

State-level fines for a rogue Elector are minimal, and SuperStation95 has confirmed with various State Police entities that rogue Electors violating their state laws will be arrested by State authorities upon leaving each Capitol if they actually violate their state's law. What was not known until today is that while the states are waiting for the Electors to actually "go Rogue," the feds are already building a "Conspiracy" case at the federal level, to go after folks who have been recorded on the phone or planning via email who have been agreeing to violate various state laws!

Trump’s Promised ‘New Foreign Policy’ Must Abandon Regime Change for Iran

Forums:

undefined

President-elect Donald Trump told a Cincinnati audience this week that he intends to make some big changes in US foreign policy. During his “thank you” tour in the midwest, Trump had this to say:

We will pursue a new foreign policy that finally learns from the mistakes of the past. We will stop looking to topple regimes and overthrow governments. …In our dealings with other countries we will seek shared interests wherever possible...”

If this is really to be President Trump’s foreign policy, it would be a welcome change from the destructive path pursued by the two previous administrations. Such a foreign policy would go a long way toward making us safer and more prosperous, as we would greatly reduce the possibility of a “blowback” attack from abroad, and we would save untold billions with a foreign policy of restraint.

Vote In Italy Will Be A "Wide-Ranging F**k Off", And It's Just The Start...

Forums:

Nick Giambruno via InternationalMan.com,

Tomorrow, December 4, Italy is holding a referendum that will determine the fate of the entire European Union.

Donald Trump’s victory—which shocked Europe’s political and media elite—gives the populists backing the “No” side of Italy’s referendum the political rocket fuel they need for a virtually guaranteed win.

That momentum will be all but impossible to reverse. Anti-elite sentiment is rising on both sides of the Atlantic. And I bet the global populist revolution will continue.

If Italians buck the establishment—and it looks like they will—it will clear a path for a populist party to take power and for Italy to exit the euro.

If that happens, the fallout will be catastrophic for global markets. The Financial Times recently put it this way:

An Italian exit from the single currency would trigger the total collapse of the eurozone within a very short period.

It would probably lead to the most violent economic shock in history, dwarfing the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008 and the 1929 Wall Street crash.

Kellyanne Conway says Hillary might NOT be off the hook for her classified emails...

Forums:

because Trump administration 'may look at that again'

A senior Donald Trump aide opened the door on Friday to the possibility that law enforcement officials in the incoming administration could take a fresh look at Hillary Clinton's classified email scandal.

Trump told DailyMail.com during the presidential primary campaign that he was open to the idea of empowering a special prosecutor, but that he would defer the decision to his attorney general if he won the election.

Kellyanne Conway, the president-elect's campaign manager, suggested on ABC's 'Good Morning America' that all options are still on the table.

Trump starts new YouTube channel to combat fake news

Forums:

President-elect Donald Trump’s new transition team plans to take back America by putting America first with a robust plan to “create jobs” in the “homeland.”

The Trump transition team has lined out some of its policy plans for the first one-hundred days and even plans to withdraw from the Trans Pacific Partnership, possibly by issuing executive orders.

Reports indicate that the Transition 2017 YouTube channel was formed so the press could not misconstrue the Presidents-elect’s comments and that his speeches would be heard in full.

Two Inspirational Items that Survived the Fires in TN

Forums:

St. Paul tells us that a miracle is an event which causes faith.  In that context, two miracles occurred in TN this week:

On Wednesday, reporter Kelsey Leyrer and her team captured footage of what they saw at a house out in Sevier County. It was a statue of Jesus -- covered with soot and ashes, but still standing. It was the only thing left after the home burned to the ground.

The Jesus statue was the second religious item this week that survived the wildfires. Earlier this week Isaac McCord, an employee at the Dollywood theme park, says he found a partially burned page from the Bible's book of Joel. The part of the passage that's readable, from Joel's first chapter reads, "O LORD, to thee will I cry: for the fire hath devoured the pastures of the wilderness, and the flame hath burned all the trees of the field."

McCord immediately took a picture of what he'd found and posted it to Facebook, where it's been shared tens of thousands of times. Many commenters took it as a sign from God.

"It provides hope and faith," McCord said. "That's why I shared it."

ALIPAC Releases Evidence Backing Trump's Claims of Mass Voter Fraud

http://www.alipac.us/f8/pac-releases-evidence-backing-trumps-claims-mass-voter-fraud-2016-elections-340988/

While illegal immigration and immigration reform amnesty legislation supporting publications like the Washington Post and New York Times are printing more fake news claiming there is no evidence for Trump's claims and concerns, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALiPAC) is releasing 49 pages of evidence for Trump's concerns that have been viewed more than 61,000 times by visitors to the world's largest archive of information about illegal immigration.

While Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton try to delegitimize President-Elect Trump's historic win on November 8, 2016, by calling for recounts, their strategy can be quickly turned into a nightmare for the Democratic Party and SEIU political machinery that willfully engaged in mass election fraud using a host of George Soros financed organizations and operatives. Republicans, Conservatives, Trump supporters, and all Americans that value fair and secure elections should be encouraged to turn their attention to the vast Democrat voter fraud that made the race much closer than it should have been.

Rudy Giuliani Gets Mocked for Idiotic Self Promotion

This is from Morning Joe on MSNBC, so take it with a grain of salt.   The article is actually worth reading: 

Like most of Rudy's crazed speeches and words as a Trump surrogate, Rudy pitched himself as the new SOS to the WSJ and said that he knows more about world affairs than anybody else because he took trips to different places over the course of his life.

Really, that's his qualifications.

I probably have traveled in the last 13 years as much as Hillary did in the years she was secretary of state,” Mr. Giuliani said, in a reference to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who lost the presidential race to Mr. Trump. “My knowledge of foreign policy is as good, or better, than anybody they’re talking to,” he said.
