DONALD’S FIRST MONTH AS PRESIDENT OF THESE UNITED STATES……
and the following list of articles  is what these screwballs of today’s American  press have to offer.   They are all shook up……Oh, my!
Their vacuousness  has been challenged and, at last exposed.  They are being found bigots and brainless, yet possess enough yesterday’s breath of brainpower to stir concern.
Our Donald has exposed them all, left and right, by reminding us  who these  ‘pretenders’ of  selling newspaper and television “truth”  really are…..intellectual slobs of the intolerant, know nothing graduates of America’s  universities of arrogance.
It is likely the most championed of New York City’s exposed  screwballs  is this St. Louis Park, Minnesota Jewish guy, Thomas Friedman…..and he’s not even listed below.  St. Louis Park is the place where his kin banned things Mark Twain from school and libraries  for his “Huckleberry Finn”……because  Huck’s  best buddy’s name was,  “Nigger Jim”.
Thank God for the election of our magnificent, full blooded  American President, Donald J. Trump who dares to expose the rot in America caused by political hacks in the press, the states and Washington,  over the past generation….leading to and abetting the crimes  of the hate-America street and college savages from California to New York.    Please take your pick of paper below….it’s America before Trump:

Minnesota Last State to Declare in 2016 Presidential Election

Americans should understand a basic truth of their 21st century world…..nearly all means of education and communication are controlled by the extreme left.   Whether kindergarten in St. Paul, the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor,   Harvard, NBC, PBS, CNN, ABC, MSNBC, CSPAN,  the New York Times, Washington Post, Minneapolis Strib, and so on and so on, this story is the same…..It’s leftism is divided only into its extremes.   Black Lives Matter is, at present, its most vicious,  violent tribe organized to disrupt where ever disruption is needed to extend the Obamaling world.

Black Racism, Feminazism,  Hispanic speakers from all corners have been encouraged by the Left to invade these United States in order to replace the present voting population without too much blood shed.

It is an Obamaling drive, lock step fascist-left to create a one-party dictatorship of the Left.

The last state on the American map to declare its choice to become the nation’s “45” president is……….Believe it or not….. Minnesota.

I admit, I feel good about the fact the state, my state,  almost returned to civilized freedom-loving America.    May God and eventually our America Bless Our President, Donald J. Trump…..Please  review the following claims of  “News” America, that November 8-9, 2016….made by the experts who control communication in 21st century United States of America……and enjoy every minute of the following news consultants at MSNBC……these days.     ENJOY the viewing below, freedom-loving Americans all!

 

Video Review of Donald Trump’s Battle with Fascistic CNN and Such

Trump: Press Should Be Ashamed Of Themselves For Publishing Classified Leaks

by Tim Haines   at realclearpolitics:

The president puts the blame for Gen. Mike Flynn’s resignation on the media:

DONALD TRUMP: Mike Flynn is a fine person, and I asked for his resignation. He respectfully gave it. He is a man who, there was a certain amount of information given to vice president Pence who is with us today. And I was not happy with the way that information was given.

He didn’t have to do that because what he did wasn’t wrong. What he did in terms of the information he saw — what was wrong was the way that other people, including yourself in this room were given that information, because that was classified information. It was given illegally. That’s the real problem.

And, you know, you can talk all you want about Russia, which was all, you know, a fake news fabricated deal to try and make up for the loss of the Democrats and the press plays right into it.

In fact, I saw a couple of the people that were supposedly involved with all of this. They know nothing about it. They weren’t in Russia. They never made a phone call to Russia. They never received a phone call. It’s all fake news. It’s all fake news. The nice thing is, I see it starting to turn. Where people are now looking at the illegal. I think it’s very important. The illegal giving out classified information…

CIA Broke the Law to Take Out Its Critic, General Flynn!

CIA broke the law to take out its critic General Flynn

By Thomas Lifson  at American Thinker:

 

“Make no mistake: we have just witnessed an operation by members of the CIA to take out a high official of our own government.  An agency widely believed to have brought down democratically elected governments overseas is now practicing the same dark arts in domestic American politics.  Almost certainly, its new head, Mike Pompeo, was not consulted.

Senator Chuck Schumer, of all people, laid out on January 2 what was going to happen to the Trump administration if it dared take on the deep state – the permanent bureaucracy that has contempt for the will of the voters and feels entitled to run the government for its own benefit:

New Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday that President-elect Donald Trump is “being really dumb” by taking on the intelligence community and its assessments on Russia’s cyber activities.

“Let me tell you, you take on the intelligence community, they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.

“So even for a practical, supposedly hard-nosed businessman, he’s being really dumb to do this.”

Or, as the old rueful saying has it, “you’ve got to go along to get along.”  This means that we the people had better acknowledge that the bureaucrats have turned into our masters, and the old expression “public servant” is as ironic as anything Orwell came up with.  Schumer knows this and likes it, because the deep state wants a bigger, more powerful government, just as he does.

Note that the law was broken by whoever leaked the transcripts to the media.  Not only is the crime underlying the “scandal” being ignored, but the criminals are being hailed.  On Morning Joe‘s first hour today, the host, a former congressman (i.e., a lawmaker) himself, called the leakers “heroes.”

This interference in domestic politics by the CIA should be regarded as a major threat to our democracy, but of course our Trump-hating domestic media are reveling in a major point scored against the new president.

David P. Goldman (aka Spengler), writing on PJ Media, explains the level of hatred the CIA has for Flynn for daring to take on its spectacular failures:

… the CIA has gone out of its way to sandbag Flynn at the National Security Council. As Politico reports: “On Friday, one of Flynn’s closest deputies on the NSC, senior director for Africa Robin Townley, was informed that the Central Intelligence Agency had rejected his request for an elite security clearance required for service on the NSC, according to two people with direct knowledge of the situation.” Townley held precisely the same security clearance at the Department of Defense for seventeen years, yet he was blackballed without explanation. At DoD, Townley had a stellar reputation as a Middle East and Africa expert, and the denial of his clearance is hard to explain except as bureaucratic backstabbing.

… Gen. Flynn is the hardest of hardliners with respect to Russia within the Trump camp. In his 2016 book Field of Fight (co-authored with PJ Media’s Michael Ledeen), Flynn warned of “an international alliance of evil movements and countries that is working to destroy us[.] … The war is on. We face a working coalition that extends from North Korea and China to Russia, Iran, Syria, Syria, Cuba, Bolivia, Venezuela and Nicaragua.” The unsubstantiated allegation that he presides over a “leaky” National Security Council tilting towards Russia makes no sense. The only leaks of which we know are politically motivated reports coming from the intelligence community designed to disrupt the normal workings of a democratic government – something that raises grave constitutional issues.

Flynn is the one senior U.S. intelligence officer with the guts to blow the whistle on a series of catastrophic intelligence and operational failures. The available facts point to the conclusion that elements of the humiliated (and perhaps soon-to-be-unemployed) intelligence community is trying to exact vengeance against a principled and patriotic officer[.] … The present affair stinks like a dumpster full of dead rats.

Note that the suspicions eagerly being raised by the media center on Trump being a pawn of Putin and Flynn secretly pledging fealty or some such absurd subordination.  In other words, suspicions of treasonous behavior by the new president are being cultivated in the general public.  We can expect the media to fan these flames at every opportunity.

Spengler also explains why the Logan Act references are insulting:

Senior officials speak to their counterparts in other countries all the time, and for obvious reasons do not want these conversations to become public. The intelligence community, though, was taping Flynn’s discussions, and the transcripts (of whose existence we are told but whose contents we have not seen) were used to embarrass him.

This last point is critical.  The entire “scandal” is based on innuendo.  Flynn tripped over his own feet by misinforming Vice President Pence on the nature of his call and allowing the veep to issue a too sweeping denial of any discussion.  If Flynn had said in his conversation with the Russian ambassador that we will discuss the sanctions after Trump takes office, he might well have told Pence that they did not discuss the sanctions.  And the CIA leakers could have used the appearance of the word “sanctions” in their transcript to brand Pence a liar.  We don’t know, and for some reason, nobody is gaining access to the actual transcripts so that we may see the content.  Perhaps the congressional investigations to come will gain access.  But Flynn is now gone, and media memes have been firmly planted in the public mind.

The Flynn Affair is a huge scandal, all right.  But the media are misdirecting our attention toward the lesser dimension while they studiously ignore the real threat to our democracy.

Make no mistake: we have just witnessed an operation by members of the CIA to take out a high official of our own government.  An agency widely believed to have brought down democratically elected governments overseas is now practicing the same dark arts in domestic American politics.  Almost certainly, its new head, Mike Pompeo, was not consulted.

Our Dennis Prager at His Best

California Dems Spend on Illegals by the Billions, but Nothing for Oroville Dam

In CA, billions for high-speed rail and illegal aliens, nothing for Oroville Dam

The massive evacuation of the area surrounding California’s Oroville Dam would not have been necessary if state officials had heeded the warnings of experts a decade ago.

But defenders of Governor Brown claim that fixing the emergency spillway now threatening to collapse and cause catastrophic flooding was never a priority and that the massive rainfall that has led to the crisis could not have been foreseen.

That may be true.  But it is also a fact that the state spent billions for the $100-billion high-speed rail system, and billions more were spent on caring for illegal aliens.  A tiny fraction of that spending – $200 million – could have been used to shore up the dam and avoid what could be the most serious flooding in modern California history.

Washington Times:

In 2005, advocacy groups led by Friends of the River urged the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to order the state to reinforce the dam’s earthen walls with concrete, citing the erosion risk, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

The agency rejected the request on the recommendation of the state Department of Water Resources and local water agencies, which would have been on the hook for improvements that could have cost as much as $100 million.

Reinforcing the Oroville Dam was not included on Mr. Brown’s $100 billion wish list of projects prepared last month at the request of the National Governors Association in response to Mr. Trump’s call for $1 trillion in infrastructure improvements, CNBC reported.

One project that did make the list: California high-speed rail, a pet project of Mr. Brown’s with an estimated price tag of $100 billion that has become for state Republicans a symbol of out-of-control government spending.

Last month, the state’s 14 Republican members of the U.S. House sent a letter to Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao asking her to suspend federal funding for high-speed rail while her office conducts a “full and complete audit of the project and its finances.”

Critics of California’s willingness to spend billions of dollars on high-speed rail and services for illegal immigrants were quick to draw parallels to the state’s failure to invest in the Oroville Dam. The cost of fixing the spillway alone is now $200 million.

Charlie Kirk, founder of conservative student group Turning Point USA, fired off a meme Monday saying, “California Governor Jerry Brown spends $25 billion per year to support illegal immigrants/I wonder how much Governor Brown spent to maintain the Oroville Dam?”

Others defended Mr. Brown, pointing out that the emergency spillway had never been used until this year and that the catastrophic rainstorms came as a shock, especially after five years of drought.

Still others turned the crisis into an opportunity to blast Mr. Trump, saying he should repair the Oroville Dam instead of building a wall on the southern border.

Good governance depends on making good choices.  Government can’t fix everything all at once, but it should be able to prioritize spending to ensure the safety of residents.  Instead of coddling illegal aliens, which only encouraged more illegals to cross the border and settle in California, how much more money would have been available to spend on infrastructure projects like the Oroville Dam if the state had cooperated with federal immigration authorities in trying to get a handle on the massive influx of illegals over the last several decades?

That spending billions on a high-speed rail system to nowhere is a waste of tax dollars should go without saying.  How many roads, bridges, and dams could have been fixed if those billions had been devoted to realistic and pressing infrastructure problems?

Californians, like all Americans, are getting the government they deserve.  They have voted the Democrats in for years and are now reaping the rewards – and paying the price – for their choices.

Any effort to get Washington to pay for emergency repairs to the Oroville Dam should be shot down by Congress immediately.  The money is there – all that’s needed is the political will to make the hard choices to spend it.
