President Trump Donates 4Q Salary to Department of Transportation

President Donald Trump donated his fourth-quarter 2017 paycheck to the Department of Transportation, demonstrating his commitment to public infrastructure. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders presented the $100,000 check to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao at the daily press briefing on Tuesday. Chao said that Donald Trump’s quarterly salary would go to the department’s INFRA (Infrastructure For Rebuilding America) Grant Programs. “Infrastructure is the backbone of our economy, and it’s key to keeping our country competitive,” she said. Chao and two transportation officials posed for a picture with the check. Trump donated his quarterly salary to different institutions within the federal government, keeping his campaign promise to serve as president without a paycheck. Previously he donated his paycheck to Department of Education, the National Park Service, and the Department of Health and Human Services combat to help fight the opioid epidemic.

Excellent!!   🙂

Opinion: Trump is right — He and his campaign were victims of a political attack by the Justice Department and FBI

Whatever the media and Democratic detractors say, the memo released by Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee Friday that revealed how the FBI and Justice Departments abused their powers to spy on the Trump presidential campaign is breathtaking. This kind of thing should not happen in America. Average Americans have not heard the last of this. They were betrayed. In sum, President Trump was right. As he said in tweet Saturday morning: “This memo totally vindicates ‘Trump’ in probe. But the Russian Witch Hunt goes on and on.” It turns out the much-maligned chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is one of the most daring whistleblowers in modern American history. Nunes was right to be distressed at what he discovered. All Americans should be. Why Democrats on the Intelligence Committee do not share this distress is beyond understanding, except because of shortsighted maneuvering for political advantage. The memo by Republicans on the committee summarizes raw intelligence confirming that formerly steady and professional staff of the Justice Department and FBI were motivated to act against candidate Trump by personal antipathy toward him, media-stoked fear of him, and perhaps personal loyalties to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. As a result, they traded their integrity for betrayal of democratic principles and our Constitution. Ironically, I have interacted with some of these professionals during the past two decades, and never perceived them as political. But something overcame them, grabbed them and turned them into something else during the 2016 election campaign. They devolved into political animals. The four-page memo confirms that Justice Department and FBI leadership were directly and personally intertwined with a company hired by the Clinton presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee to conduct opposition research on Trump. The research produced a series of false allegations tying Trump and his campaign to Russia. The allegations were compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and have collectively become known as the Steele dossier. Though unsubstantiated, Steele’s allegations were hard to counter, because it is always hard to prove a negative. Steele was clearly politically motivated. As the Republican memo released Friday states: “Steele admitted to (Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce) Ohr his feelings against then-candidate Trump when Steele said he ‘was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not being president.’” Steele’s false claims were attached to a sworn affidavit, presented as “fact” to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which then authorized unprecedented electronic surveillance – that is, overt and invasive open-ended spying on a private citizen, Carter Page – ostensibly due to his ties to the Trump campaign. The sweater was unraveled by that thread; through one false assertion, others could be made, and a narrative could be pushed to the media with vigor. An anti-Trump cabal grew within Justice Department and FBI, animated by the cry to save America from itself by preventing Donald Trump from being elected president. Perhaps the innumerable “unmasking” events tie also to this. The power of the federal government is enormous, can smash a private citizen and could crush most political campaigns. Amazingly, Trump and the American preference for him survived. That is remarkable and sobering. Like the Sept.11, 2001 terrorist attacks and even more than the Watergate scandal, Friday’s revelations should shake us. They change our assessment of the ostensibly non-political Justice Department and FBI, giving us pause. We are living in a time when senior Justice Department and FBI officials felt justified, for political reasons, to deceive the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and all Americans. The court grants surveillance warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which authorizes surveillance of individuals believed to be agents of foreign powers. The House Intelligence Committee memo shows that federal officials appear to have violated the public trust and their oaths of office, subverting laws for political outcomes. This should never happen.

Agreed!!  This excellent analysis was written by former Assistant Secretary of State, litigator, and naval intelligence officer Robert Charles.  For more, click on the text above.

Rush Limbaugh: Schumer, Dems caved on shutdown because ‘Trump went on offense’

Radio host Rush Limbaugh says there is a simple reason why a short-lived government shutdown ended Monday: President Trump “went on offense.” The man behind “the golden EIB microphone” told listeners this week that Democrats were so caught off guard by “Schumer Shutdown” attacks that they did a political U-turn after three days. Mr. Limbaugh said the Republicans’ refusal to negotiate on Saturday, coupled with rhetorical broadsides against Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, constituted a political masterstroke. “When was the last time the GOP won a shutdown showdown?” the conservative asked. “When was the first time the GOP ever won a shutdown showdown? Yet Trump has won a shutdown showdown.” Mr. Limbaugh said that Democrats “wanted this [shutdown] to go on through the State of the Union,” but were forced to retreat after Mr. Trump proactively took control of the narrative. “It sounds to me like that Schumer and the Democrats expected the Republicans to cave, and Trump did not cave. And the Democrats know they’re on thin ice on this and so Trump wins,” the radio host said. They just didn’t count on the fact that — and this is beyond me why they didn’t — but they didn’t count on the fact of Trump returning fire. Not just returning fire, Trump went on offense.” The deal struck by lawmakers on Monday, which includes a promise for a Senate debate on immigration reform, will keep the government running through Feb. 8. “I am pleased that Democrats in Congress have come to their senses and are now willing to fund our great military, border patrol, first responders, and insurance for vulnerable children,” Mr. Trump said in a statement. “As I have always said, once the Government is funded, my Administration will work toward solving the problem of very unfair illegal immigration. We will make a long-term deal on immigration if, and only if, it is good for our country.”

Us usual, “El Rushbo” nails it!    🙂

Donald Trump Trolls Women’s March on Twitter

President Donald Trump needled the mostly anti-Trump Women’s March on Saturday, reminding them of the positive economic gains for women under his administration. “Beautiful weather all over our great country, a perfect day for all Women to March,” he wrote on Twitter. “Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months. Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!” Temperatures in the Washington, DC area rose to 59 degrees on Saturday afternoon after several days of cold weather. The Washington, DC march was smaller this year than the previous one in 2017..

HAHAHA!!  How great is this?!?  Trump definitely has a sense of humor; sticking it in the eyes of these Women’s March folks..  Excellent!!     🙂

President Trump reveals winners of his ‘Fake News’ awards

President Trump revealed the winners of his self-proclaimed ‘Fake News’ awards Wednesday night on Twitter — with The New York Times topping the list. CNN also came out as a “winner,” with the left-leaning news network making the list four times. The list, published on GOP.com, noted that “studies have shown that over 90 percent of the media’s coverage of President Trump is negative.” It went on to call 2017 “a year of unrelenting bias, unfair news coverage and even downright fake news.” Coming in first place was The New York Times’ Paul Krugman for his prediction that the stock markets would never recover from Trump’s election. In a bit of irony, the Dow Jones industrial average closed above 26,000 for the first time on Wednesday. The Times was followed by ABC News’ Brian Ross for his botched report that Trump advised former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to make contact with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign. The list pointed to a false CNN report that Trump had early access to “hacked documents” from WikiLeaks, a video that suggested Trump overfed fish in a visit with the Japanese prime minister and a report that former FBI Director James Comey would deny saying Trump was told he was not under investigation. The Times appeared on the list again for a false report that the Trump administration hid a report on climate change. Newsweek sent out a tweet Wednesday evening acknowledging its “award.” The final “winner” on the list, as Trump described it: “And last, but not least: ‘RUSSIA COLLUSION!’ Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!” The website carrying the results of the “Fake News Awards” crashed because it was flooded with visitors after Trump tweeted out the link. Without naming anyone, Trump also tweeted out his praise for the “many great reporters.” He continued, “Despite some very corrupt and dishonest media coverage, there are many great reporters I respect and lots of GOOD NEWS for the American people to be proud of!” Click here to see the full list of winners of the 2017 Fake News Awards.

This is so great!!!  President Trump calls out these glaring, factual errors by the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  There is NO question that they are clearly guilty of not only anti-Trump bias.  That’s a given.  But, they create fake news.  If you’ve not seen that list yet, click on the text above.  Excellent!!   🙂

FLASHBACK: When Jesse Jackson Praised President Trump For ‘Being Inclusive’

Leading up to Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, race hustler Jesse Jackson blasted President Trump for his alleged “s***hole” comments regarding other countries. “The language of Donald Trump has been a source of shame for our nation. Humiliation and untruth,” Jackson said last Friday at the Greater Abyssinia Baptist Church in Cleveland. “It’s flat-out ignorance, the American public deserves better,” Jackson said. “But you get what you vote for, and what you don’t vote for. 2018 will be a chance to make a difference if we vote our hopes and not our fears.” Jackson also referred to Trump as a “racist” who is a “weapon of mass destruction,” which is weird to say the least, because when Trump was a private citizen and used his billions to help black communities, the real estate mogul had the praise of none other than Jesse Jackson. Back in 1998 and 1999, Trump worked with Jackson’s Rainbow/PUSH coalition to help offer a way to get African Americans into corporate America and improve their communities through building projects and jobs. Jackson praised Trump’s savvy business aplomb not once, but twice. “We need your building skills, your gusto, your [unintelligible] for people on Wall Street to represent diversity, and we thank you for coming tonight. Let’s give Donald Trump a big hand,” Jackson said at an event captured by C-SPAN cameras. At another event a year later, Jackson introduced his “friend” and thanked Trump for giving blacks a “face” on Wall Street. “When we opened this Wall Street project and we talked about it, you gave us face at 40 Wall Street, which was to make a statement about our having a presence there,” said Jackson. “Beyond that in terms of reaching out and being inclusive, he’s done that, too.” Jackson also applauded Trump’s “will to make things better” for the “underserved communities.” In addition, Jackson thanked Trump for meeting with him in 1984 and in 1988 when he ran for president at a time when the United States would’ve found the idea of a black president “laughable.” When Trump got up to speak at that event, he praised the skilled workmanship of blacks and other minorities. How times have changed.

Indeed..  To see the video of ol’ Jesse praising “The Donald” back then, just click on the text above.  One of the things we love to do here at The Daily Buzz is to show brazen hypocrisy.  Jesse Jackson is more than just an opportunistic race hustler.  He’s a self-serving, self-righteous, extreme liberal/socialist, hypocritical black racist.  Jesse is as bad as it gets.  We’re happy to show just how much of a nauseating hypocrite he is.  What a loser..

CNN doctor Sanjay Gupta claims Trump has heart disease

CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta disputed President Trump’s clean bill of health this week, claiming that the numbers actually suggest the president has heart disease. “The president has heart disease,” the neurosurgeon, who has never examined Mr. Trump, declared on “New Day” Wednesday, adding that the president needs a medical plan to prevent a major heart problem in the near future. Dr. Gupta said the presence of calcium in Mr. Trump’s blood vessels has greatly increased since 2009, and that the coronary calcium score released by the White House on Tuesday indicated that the president had already well surpassed the threshold for having heart disease and being at risk for a heart attack. Dr. Ronny L. Jackson, a rear admiral in the Navy and a longtime White House physician, determined during Mr. Trump’s first medical exam in office that the 71-year-old president is in excellent physical and cognitive health. During a nearly hourlong press briefing Tuesday, Dr. Jackson said the president does not have heart disease. “No, he does not have heart disease,” he told Dr. Gupta at the briefing, the Washington Examiner reported. “I think he had great findings across the board, but the one that stands out more than anything to me is his cardiac health. His cardiac health is excellent.” Speaking on CNN, Dr. Gupta pushed back against Dr. Jackson’s claims. “They’re going to be increasing the medications, including the cholesterol-lowering medications to try and combat that, but there’s no question, by all standards, by all metrics, anyway a doctor or cardiologist will look at it, the president does have heart disease,” Dr. Gupta said, The Hill reported. A White House official told the Washington Examiner that it had nothing to add to Dr. Jackson’s statements. “The question was asked and answered very clearly. Perhaps Dr. Gupta should take the cognitive exam?” the official said. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a press briefing Wednesday that Dr. Jackson is “the only credible source when it comes to diagnosing any health concerns” of the president.

And, Dr. Jackson, who actually performed a physical examination of Pres. Trump, was the personal physician for Presidents Bush (43) and Obama.  He is a non-political medical doctor, and Navy admiral with impeccable credentials…and again, ACTUALLY evaluated the President.  By extreme contrast, Dr. Gupta is a former Hillary Clinton adviser, and was on Obama’s short list to be a Surgeon General (essentially a political appointment), and has never examined the President.  You be the judge of who is probably more correct, and who is just a political hack creating fake news to further CNN’s anti-Trump agenda.  To read more about Dr. Jackson’s evaluation of President Trump, scroll down about 4 articles.
