Supreme Court Victory – Trump’s Former Opponent Delivers Him A Resounding Win

Published

on

It’s a good day when Donald Trump’s former opponent in the 2016 election decides to support the president in a major decision. It was Senator Rand Paul who stated that he will officially support Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. This was decided, apparently, during a meeting that Rand Paul had with Brett last week.

Trump’s position as the president puts him in the middle of the Democrats and Republicans as any decision he makes is fair grounds for being supported or not. Some Republicans have chosen not to support the president, such as John McCain. Even though Trump ran on the side of the GOP, he still found himself to be a target of many who were supposed to be on his side. Rand Paul was considered a swing vote in just about anything Trump attempted. Paul’s support of Kavanaugh is what makes it a win for Trump.

Each time the president makes a decision, it’s as though he’s being watched with a hawk’s eyes and then pounced upon at every little mistake. Each president makes mistakes, big or small, but it sometimes seems like Trump’s mistakes are exaggerated by mainstream media. That’s just my opinion on it, not to be mixed or perceived as a fact.

Rand Paul supporting Trump’s decision on Kavanaugh is a good thing for Trump. It shows that some people are not afraid to support their president. It’s also good that it took some time for Paul to come along. That means Rand Paul may have been weighing his options and thinking about his decision instead of automatically accepting or supporting the decision. It’s better for people to put some thought into their own actions before making a supportive announcement of any type. Rand Paul might face some opposition, but that seems to be fair game in the political world these days. After all, isn’t facing opposition in politics all part of a days work?

Fox News stated on Paul’s decision: “I believe he will carefully adhere to the Constitution and will take his job to protect individual liberty seriously,” Paul said in a statement.

The Kentucky senator was one of the few Republicans considered a possible swing vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Sens. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, also are being closely watched.

But with Paul voicing clear support — and Collins and Murkowski signaling potential support in recent weeks — Kavanaugh’s prospects appear to be improving as GOP leaders aim to engineer a swift confirmation by the fall.

In another sign of congressional outreach, Kavanaugh is having his first meeting Monday with a Democratic senator since becoming Trump’s high court nominee.

He plans to sit down with Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, one of a handful of Democratic senators who could cross the aisle to vote for Kavanaugh as most Democrats line up against him.

Paul, meanwhile, has taken issue with Kavanaugh’s record supporting the warrantless collection of telephone metadata.

“I have expressed my concern over Judge Kavanaugh’s record on warrantless bulk collection of data and how that might apply to very important privacy cases before the Supreme Court,” he said Monday.

But he said his vote is not a “single-issue” decision and voiced confidence in Kavanaugh’s record on other issues.

“My conversation with Judge Kavanaugh reinforces my belief that he will evaluate cases before the Supreme Court from a textual and originalist point of view,” Paul said.

“On issues such as property rights and reining in the administrative state, Judge Kavanaugh has a strong record and showed a deep commitment during our meeting. … Finally, his strong defenses of the First and Second Amendments in landmark cases show someone who isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo and will fight with backbone. Judge Kavanaugh will have my support and my vote to confirm him to the Supreme Court.”

Republicans, with a 51-49 majority, have little wiggle room on the Kavanaugh vote. And with Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., out battling brain cancer, GOP leaders cannot spare a single vote unless they attract Democratic support.

Trump About To Drop Presidential Hammer On Obama For Attempting To Overtake Investigation

Published

on

* By

More and more is coming out about Spygate. The Obama administration tried to take over the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign, according to The Hill’s John Solomon. He covered it last night on Hannity’s show and then wrote on it extensively at The Hill. Solomon claims that the FBI began spying on members of the Trump campaign to gather the intelligence that ultimately justified the collusion investigation, weeks or even months before the FBI had a formal predicate. If true, the whole thing was cooked up and premeditated. It was indeed a pre-planned coup and President Trump is about to drop the presidential hammer on all of them.

“That’s very important. The rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The predication is July 31, 2016,” Solomon told Hannity. The investigative reporter said he had sources and documents backing up his claim that he would be making public in his report in The Hill on Friday and he did just that.

Solomon started off his well-researched piece with this:

“The bridge to the Russia investigation wasn’t erected in Moscow during the summer of the 2016 election.”

“It originated earlier, 1,700 miles away in London, where foreign figures contacted Trump campaign advisers and provided the FBI with hearsay allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, bureau documents and interviews of government insiders reveal. These contacts in spring 2016 — some from trusted intelligence sources, others from Hillary Clinton supporters — occurred well before FBI headquarters authorized an official counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016.”

“The new timeline makes one wonder: Did the FBI follow its rules governing informants?”

A very good question and of course the answer is a resounding “no.”

Solomon stressed that informants were making contacts with the Trump officials and providing information to the FBI “much, much earlier than July 31.” Then he drops the bombshell that according to the FBI, the White House and Obama wanted to take over the whole investigation. Here is where that led on Sean Hannity’s show last night:

John Solomon: I’m putting finishing touches on a column that I think will come out tomorrow. And it will reveal two really important things. The efforts to begin targeting and reaching out to Trump campaign officials to gain intelligence on Russia that would ultimately justify the investigation began weeks and maybe months before the FBI had a formal predicate. And that’s very important the rules say you can’t use sources until you have a predicated investigation. The investigation is July 31, 2016. My sources and documents that I will be able to make public tomorrow will show that there were contacts going on by people identified as informers, informants, people who provided information began much, much earlier than July 31st. That’s the first part. The second part is as the investigation was just starting to ramp up there are internal FBI documents showing FBI agents talking about the White House trying to take over the investigation. Fears that the Justice Department were going to leak for political reasons and their own personal fear.

Sean Hannity: Slow down. When you say the White House you mean the Obama White House- they were attempting to take over the investigation.

John Solomon: That’s what these messages say.

Sean Hannity: These are FBI messages and this is the Obama White House. How high up are we talking about here?

John Solomon: We don’t know the messages are just what they are.

Solomon covers in the second part of his report the internal FBI communications between former counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, his mistress Lisa Page and others discussing how the Obama White House was trying to take over the investigation. “The words ‘the White House is running this’ are clear in the text message,” Solomon told Hannity, adding that “the FBI agents who opened this case feared that Barack Obama was weak on national security and wouldn’t do what they needed for Russia.” Wowzers. He went on to say, “The political elements of the administration were trying to intrude on the FBI investigation.”

Solomon’s report does not sync with what former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes wrote about the investigation in his new book “The World as It Is,” which is set to be published next week by Random House. Well, duh. Rhodes is lying. That’s what he is good at and has done from the beginning. In his book, Rhodes claims that Obama didn’t know there was an FBI investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible contacts with Russia until he left office. That’s just laughable. Rhodes said that “neither he nor Mr. Obama knew at that time that there was an F.B.I. investigation,” according to the New York Times, which obtained an advance copy of the book. Way to cover your collective backsides. No one believes that.

The failed novelist claims in the book that he learned about the FBI investigation from news reports after he left office. Gee, that is the same excuse Obama used multiple times during his presidency. Tell a lie often enough, these guys really think Americans are gullible and stupid. Rhodes is simply insulting our intelligence here. I wouldn’t buy his book to use as a doorstop.

No collusion between President Trump and Russia has ever been proven because it does not exist. The only ones gaining from this are Mueller and his team who are getting paid a ton to try and tie the President’s hands to keep him from doing his job. Taxpayers have wasted almost $17 million on the Russia probe since Mueller took over in 2017, according to a spending report just released by the DOJ. About $10 million was spent in the five months between October 2017 and March 2018 alone. That includes $4.5 million in hefty salaries for Mueller’s team of Trump-hating Democratic attorneys and another $5.5 million spent on random expenses.

Solomon’s report gives justification to President Trump to stop this nonsense.

Do you think Trump should swing the hammer down hard?

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

* By

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
