Federal Judge Upholds Trump’s Travel Ban

Believe it or not, there are still plenty of jurists who rule on the facts and not by their emotions. One such judge in the Eastern District of Virginia believes the former is more important than the latter.

Judge Anthony Trenga of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia found that Trump was within his legal rights to impose the travel ban and that it was not discriminatory toward Muslims. The injunction had been brought forward by Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour, who was represented by an attorney from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Trenga, a George W. Bush appointee, wrote in his opinion that “the President has unqualified authority to bar physical entry to the United States at the border.” He said that the executive order makes no mention of religion and has a “state secular purpose” of protecting U.S. citizens from terrorist attacks.

The primary duty of an American president is to protect the citizens. This travel ban goes a long way toward doing that, and is another protection against European/Britain-style terror attacks.

Double Tap

The House Intelligence Committee Chairman announced yesterday U.S. intelligence services had President Trump’s transition team under surveillance since the November election. Chairman Devin Nunes claimed what he read “bothered” him and should bother the president and all Americans.

The U.S. intelligence community incidentally collected information on members of President Trump’s transition team and the information was “widely disseminated” in intelligence reports, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) said Wednesday.

“I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions, the intelligence community collected information on U.S. individuals involved in the Trump transition.”

The intelligence collected has nothing to do with Russia or the investigation into Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election, according to Nunes.

Nunes later told reporters he believes the details should “bother” the president and his team because some of the collection seemed “inappropriate.”

Nunes did not go into specific details, but one wonders who ordered the surveillance, and for what reason. Interestingly, President Obama changed the way intelligence is shared a week before Trump’s inauguration. Now, if I was a conspiracy guy…

As serious as this story is, what amazes me is how every “crazy” accusation the president has lobbed at his detractors has come to fruition.

You Deserve A Snake Today

McDonald’s verified corporate Twitter account sent out a despicable tweet attacking President Donald Trump yesterday, cementing itself in the annals of businesses I boycott.

McDonald’s Corp (MCD.N) quickly deleted a tweet sent from the company’s handle slamming U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday and said its official Twitter account had been compromised.

The tweet, which was copied and shared widely before being deleted, came a day after the Twitter accounts of a number of major news organizations, chief executives, government agencies and other high-profile users were hijacked.

“Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this,” McDonald’s spokeswoman Terri Hickey said in a statement.

Every single time some liberal – or liberal organization – gets backlash from a despicable tweet, they immediately claim they were hacked. Funny, not one of my 900+ followers have ever claimed their Twitter accounts have been hacked. Not one.

The tweet sent from @McDonaldsCorp on Thursday morning read: “@realdonaldtrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands.”

Former Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is now the head of corporate relations at McDonald’s. Of course, a former Obama lackey wouldn’t have an ax to grind against Donald Trump, amirite?

Oh, and by the way, nowhere in McDonald’s explanatory tweet is an apology, so take that for what it is.

So, How Does That Foot Taste?

I realize this story is from yesterday, but the good news is this post can be read at a discount, just like day-old doughnuts. MSNBC newsman Rachel Maddow teased a blockbuster story on Twitter Tuesday, claiming “We’ve got Trump tax returns. Tonight, 9pm ET. MSNBC. (Seriously).”

Huge, right? Well he certainly thought so.

On her Tuesday show, Rachel Maddow teased a scoop: She had Donald Trump’s 2005 tax returns. It was the first time his federal returns would be released.

So this dude purposely misled his audience by implying he scored Trump’s 2016 tax returns. He also came into possession of someone else’s tax forms, which is a felony.

Anyway, when she finally revealed what was in the taxes, it was not a huge deal. Trump earned about $150 million in income in 2005, and paid $38 million in taxes, thanks to the alternative minimum tax, which he wants to kill.

This gives Trump an effective tax rate of about 24 percent, which Johnston pointed out was roughly equal to what he and his wife, who are an upper middle class couple, pay. And, sure, for a billionaire, you can argue that he should pay more in taxes. But, $38 million is a big number. As is $150 million in income.

During the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton continually argued Trump did not pay any taxes, and demanded Trump’s tax forms be disseminated to the public. The MSM, ever the Democrat ladogs, followed suit.

Now Maddow got his grubby little hands on the president’s tax forms – which again, is a felony – and the only thing we learned is 1. Trump does indeed pay taxes, and 2. Trump also taxed at a higher rate than MSNBC, Mitt Romney, Bernie Sanders, and Barack Obama.

Fantastic scoop, man. Bravo.

Kofi Annan Gonna Work Here Anymore

President Trump is reportedly considering massive governmental cuts in his budget proposal, including cutting funding to the United Nations by half.

I think I just had my first real orgasm.

State Department staffers have been instructed to seek cuts in excess of 50 percent in U.S. funding for U.N. programs, signaling an unprecedented retreat by President Donald Trump’s administration from international operations that keep the peace, provide vaccines for children, monitor rogue nuclear weapons programs, and promote peace talks from Syria to Yemen, according to three sources.

The push for such draconian measures comes as the White House is scheduled on Thursday to release its 2018 budget proposal, which is expected to include cuts of up to 37 percent for spending on the State Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and other foreign assistance programs, including the U.N., in next year’s budget. The United States spends about $10 billion a year on the United Nations. (H/TAOSHQ)

The fact the media is losing their shite over this should immediately win you over. If these cuts are bad from their point of view, they are galactically awesome from ours. The president promised to drain the swamp. Slashing funds to the U.N. is a fantastic start.

President Prissypants’ Temper Tantrum

Barack Hussein Obama, the scourge of the Constitution, reportedly threw a hissy fit when hearing about President Trump’s allegation Obama had Trump Tower wiretapped.

Barack Obama was livid when he found out that Donald Trump accused him of wiretapping Trump Tower.

The former president thought Trump’s claim questioned both the integrity of the office and himself, people familiar with him told the Wall Street Journal.

Others told CNN that Obama was “irked, exasperated” and “in disbelief.” Another added that Trump’s predecessor “rolled his eyes” at the news.

Yet, nowhere in the article does it quote Obama’s denial. In fact, no one from the Obama regime has come out to expressly and specifically deny Trump’s allegations. Interesting.

Tap Out

president-trump-and-the-scoamf

President Trump claims his phones were tapped in the weeks before the November election. Trump is asserting the taps were executed by President Obama and his administration.

President Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower days before the 2016 presidential election in a series of tweets.

Some Trump campaign officials allegedly had contact with Russian intelligence during the campaign. The Justice department officials cited intercepted phone calls between the campaign officials and the intelligence officers.

Obama administration aides also spread classified intelligence related to possible Trump campaign contact with Russia around the government. The effort centered on leaving a trail of alleged evidence for government investigators to follow.

Let me say this about that. Do I know for sure the Obama administration tapped Trump’s phones? Of course not. Do I believe Barack Obama would have no problem initiating an illegal wiretap? Absolutely.

The problem here – and in the country as a whole – is the Trump administration not only has to defend itself from Democrats and the MSM, but also the “deep state” operatives friendly to Obama, and the “principled conservatives” infesting the #NeverTrump regime.

From where I stand, the people suffering most from this insurgency are the American citizens.

President Trump Gives First Address

president-trump-state-of-the-unionPresident Trump gave his first speech to a united Congress last night, and by most accounts, it was a successful, heartfelt, unifying speech.

Trump began with a claim on the role of political peacemaker, saying he wanted to bring Americans who voted for him together with those who didn’t. That followed a stunning condemnation of anti-Semitism and other hatred.

Trump declared that the close of Black History Month led him to remember ‘our nation’s path toward civil rights and the work that still remains.’

‘Recent threats targeting Jewish Community Centers and vandalism of Jewish cemeteries, as well as last week’s shooting in Kansas City, remind us that while we may be a Nation divided on policies, we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all its forms.’

Naturally, the Democrats acted like petulant children during the speech, with some leftists laughing and hissing during the president’s speech. Apparently Joe Wilson-esque outbursts are welcome during a Republican address.

Trump made appeal after appeal for bipartisan cooperation, but Democrats were anything but unanimously receptive. Some of them laughed out loud when the president bragged that he has ‘begun to drain the swamp of government corruption.’

Others gasped in audible disbelief when he announced the formation of a government department to assist victims of illegal-immigrant criminals. Then came the hissing when he announced that ‘the time for trivial fights is behind us.’

I have my issues with the POTUS, but like Bush 43, I believe Donald Trump is a very decent man.

President Trump Blows Off “Nerd Prom”

larry-wilmore-and-michelle-obama-annoyed-during-whcd-national-anthem

President Trump has decided he will stay home and wash his hair instead of appearing at the ridiculously unnecessary White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Trump will be the first president in nearly forty years to ignore the “Nerd Prom,” and I believe it his best presidential decision yet.

Donald Trump announced Saturday afternoon that he will not be attending the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, D.C.

One day after the White House announced it had barred CNN, The New York Times, Politico and several other major media outlets from a media “gaggle” in the White House leading to angry protests from the press and several threats of boycotts of future media briefings, in a tweet the president said he will pass on the journalism scholarship benefit dinner in April traditionally attended by major media outlets, celebrity guests and the president and vice president.

“I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!” he wrote on Twitter.

I sincerely hope that is Trumpspeak for, “Go f**k yourselves, media. I would rather place my penis into a piranha’s mouth than attend your liberal circle-jerk.”

McCain Struck By The Back Of His Rand

john-mccain-is-a-jackass

While I believe he is a very good senator, I differ with Rand Paul on many issues; particularly his protectionist nature. That said, I wholeheartedly agree with his takedown of aging fossil John McCain yesterday. It’s high time someone put that jackass in his place.

Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) ripped fellow Republican Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) Sunday after McCain criticized President Trump’s escalating war of words with the media.

“Everything that he says about the president is colored by his own personal dispute he’s got running with President Trump, and it should be taken with a grain of salt, because John McCain’s the guy who’s advocated for war everywhere,” Paul said.

John McCain is also the guy who stabs every true conservative in the back for the sake of media acceptance. I love you, Arizona, but really, can you do no better than this toad?

Paul said there has no effort by the Trump administration to suppress the media, noting that no legislation has been offered to curb press freedoms. Paul argued that McCain has a history of being wrong major foreign policy questions.

“I would say John McCain’s been wrong on just about everything over the last four decades. He advocated for the Iraq War, which I think destabilized the Middle East.”

Interesting how the media loved McCain in the 2008 primaries, then decided he was a douche during the general election. They hated him for eight years, but have now embraced him; conveniently after he started attacking Trump. McCain and Miss Lindsey need to retire to Statler and Waldorf’s balcony.
