President Trump Designates North Korea as a State Sponsor of Terror

President Donald Trump revealed his intentions to declare North Korea as a state sponsor of terror. “In addition to threatening the world by nuclear devastation, North Korea has repeatedly supported acts of including assassinations on foreign soil,” Trump said. The president made his remarks to reporters as he met with his cabinet at the White House on Monday. “Should have happened a long time ago,” Trump said. “Should have happened years ago.” He referred to the death of American prisoner Otto Warmbier and “countless others” brutalized by the North Korean regime. Trump said the announcement was only part of his “maximum pressure campaign” to isolate the North Korean regime in response to their actions. In 2008, President George W. Bush took the regime off the list. Trump also previewed new sanctions that the Treasury Department were preparing to level against North Korea. “The North Korean regime must be lawful,” Trump said. “It must end its unlawful nuclear and ballistic missile development, and cease all support for international terrorism — which it is not doing.”

This is long overdue.  Pres. Bush should never have removed the DPRK from that list.  Kudos to Pres. Trump for putting that evil and dangerous regime back on the list.  Excellent!

Nolte: The Adventures of Creepy Joe Biden: Serial Young Girl-Toucher

As I wrote on Wednesday, the biggest media hoax going right now is this sudden contrition over the shielding of Bill Clinton for 25 years against numerous allegations that ranged from sexual harassment to flat-out rape. There are two reasons we know this is just another fake news wave of media BS. The first is that this very same media is right now shielding Democrat Senator Bob Menendez from the allegations he had sex with underage prostitutes. The second is creepy Joe Biden, the serial young girl-toucher. The reason Biden is allowed to get away with wildly inappropriate behavior involving young, and even underage girls, is because, duh, he is a Democrat and is therefore allowed to do so whatever he wants with young girls. Also a factor is that our corrupt media sees Biden as their best chance to bring back the glory of the Obama-era by defeating Trump in 2020. And as we have seen with Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton, and are seeing right now with Bob Menendez, when it comes to the media’s Cause, women and girls are expendable. Anyway, the good news is that the media will never get away with covering up Biden’s disgustingly creepy behavior, not in this age of New Media. And if Creepy Joe does decide to run in 2020, the political ads using these videos and photos will be the stuff of legend. Click here to see some photos and videos.

Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch Is Ready to Take On Administrative State

Justice Neil Gorsuch gave the most significant public address of his tenure on the nation’s highest court Thursday when he addressed the Federalist Society’s annual dinner, recently named in honor of the last man to hold his seat: Antonin Scalia. The newest Supreme Court justice took square aim at one of this year’s Federalist Society Convention’s main themes: the “administrative state,” the unelected mass of executive agency staff that actually creates most of the rules and regulations by which Americans live. Resistance of the administrative state’s growth and overreach is a driving force in the emergence of populist-nationalism and the Trump movement. Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon has repeatedly called the “deconstruction of the administrative state” one of the three pillars of populist-nationalism. Gorsuch has been under fire from the left and the mainstream legal establishment for his willingness to reexamine the once-controversial twentieth century Supreme Court decisions that made the modern, massive administrative state possible. He mocked a recent article in the Harvard Law Review claiming the administrative state is “under siege” and calling him an “anti-administrativist.” “Anti-adminstrativism was conclusively rejected in the 1930s,” Gorsuch quoted the article as saying. “That’s kinda funny,” Gorsuch joked, “I thought the powers of our government were conclusively allocated in the 1780s.” The notion that reining in the power of the administrative agencies is a project in the interest of “big business” held no sway with Gorsuch. “The fact is, getting administrative law right is important to everyone who interacts with our government. And today, that’s just about everyone,” he said. “The mighty can keep track of the changes easily enough, maybe even influence them … but what about the ordinary citizen?” “Remember that, for many years, the courts seemed wary of the job of trying to draw lines between laws that fall within or beyond Congress’s power to regulate interstate commerce,” Gorsuch explained, referring to the clause of the Constitution that came in the twentieth century to allow the federal government to regulate virtually any aspect of citizens’ lives, “yet courts have since managed to enter the field there, and it’s unclear why they can’t do the same here [with the administrative state.]” Gorsuch also tried to make light of his unprecedented contentious confirmation hearings where Democrats skewered him for a dissent that ruled against a fired truck driver, joking with the audience of jurists, politicians, law professors, and attorneys from the conservative and libertarian tradition at the black tie event at Union Station in Washington, DC: “Good judges will look at a statute or regulation and immediately know three things: One, the law is telling you to do something really, really stupid. Two, the law is constitutional, and I have no choice but to do that really stupid thing the law commands. And three, when it’s done, everyone who’s not a lawyer will think I just hate truckers..” “Tonight, I can report that a person can be both a publicly committed originalist and textualist and be confirmed to the Supreme Court,” he told attendees, which included Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY); Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK); and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who will address the Federalist Society Friday at its convention. He later continued, “Originalism has regained its place at the table of constitutional interpretation, and textualism in the reading of statutes has triumphed, and neither one is going anywhere on my watch.”

We’re thrilled to hear it, Sir!  Excellent!!   🙂

Senate Republican Tax Bill Will Repeal Obamacare’s Individual Mandate

Senate Republicans will add the repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate to the tax bill, Senate leaders said Tuesday afternoon. President Donald Trump urged the Senate in a tweet Monday to add the repeal. Sen. Rand Paul said on Tuesday morning that he would push for the move. Sen. Tom Cotton also indicated that he supported putting the repeal in the bill. Now, Republican leaders are confirming that the repeal will indeed be part of the bill and that they have enough votes for it to pass through the Senate. “We’re optimistic that inserting the individual mandate will be helpful,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters Tuesday. Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn and Sen. John Thune also told reporters that the repeal would be included. The savings from the repeal would “be distributed in the form of middle-income tax relief,” Thune said. Thune also said that the bill had 50 votes in the Senate, enough to pass with a tie-breaking vote by Vice President Mike Pence if done under rules that allow for the passage of certain bills by a bare majority. A repeal of the individual mandate would save $338 billion over the next decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office’s analysis. “Repealing the mandate pays for more tax cuts for working families and protects them from being fined by the IRS for not being able to afford insurance that Obamacare made unaffordable in the first place,” Sen. Cotton said in a statement, according to the Hill.

YES!!!!  🙂

President Trump Shuts Down Reporter’s Gun Control Stump Speech in South Korea

President Trump shut down a reporter’s gun control stump speech in South Korea on Tuesday. He did so when NBC News’ Ali Vitali asked if he would support more gun control for would-be gun purchasers. She said, “You’ve talked about wanting to put extreme vetting on people trying to come into the United States, but I wondered if you’d consider extreme vetting for people trying to buy a gun?” Trump responded by questioning the appropriateness of the question, given that it was being asked just two days after the heinous Texas attack as well as the fact that it was being asked during a press conference in South Korea. He then quickly dismissed calls for more gun control and went on to praise Americans’ ability to use guns to stop attacks like the one in Texas. In so doing, Trump stressed that gun control carries with it the threat of making it difficult for law-abiding citizens to get the guns they need to defend themselves and others. He said, “[With more gun control] you might not have had that very brave person who happened to have a gun or a rifle in his truck, go out and shoot [the attacker], and hit him, neutralize him.” Similar sentiment was expressed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) on November 6. During an interview by Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade, Paxton said, “What ultimately may have saved some lives is … people that were outside the church that actually had guns that may have slowed this guy down and actually pursued him. So I would rather arm law-abiding citizens and make sure that they can prevent this from happening as opposed to trying to pass laws that would prevent law-abiding citizens from having guns.”

More fraud in Diversity Visa Lottery as feds move to strip citizenship from four Somalis

The Justice Department moved Monday to strip citizenship from four Somali immigrants who prosecutors say lied about being a family, and managed to defraud the Diversity Visa Lottery program that Republicans are aiming to nix. The government says one woman, Fosia Abdi Adan, won the lottery in 2000 and then brought in two other people as her husband and children, using a fake marriage certificate. The prosecutions come a week after the Diversity Lottery was in the news as the immigration program used by the suspect in last week’s terrorist truck attack in New York City. “The current immigration system is easily abused by fraudsters and nefarious actors, and that’s certainly true of the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Mr. Sessions said the fraud alleged in the case of Ms. Adan meant three other people were also admitted to the U.S. as part of chain migration — an issue where President Trump has been eager to impose new restrictions. The visa lottery doles out about 50,000 visas a year based on pure chance.

..and therein is the problem with it.  We need to have a merit-based immigration system, much like New Zealand and Australia have.  This Diversity Visa Lottery is a mess and full of fraud and corruption.  It may have been well-intentioned.   But, its been a disaster, and it’s time we did away with it.

 

Senate Democrats Push Gun Control Within Hours of Texas Church Shooting

Senate Democrats called for the passage of gun control laws within hours of the November 5 church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. The senators include Bob Casey (D-PA), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Chris Murphy (D-CT). All five expressed their gun control desires via Twitter. Casey called for Congress to “take action” but did not explain what gun control could have stopped the Sutherland attacker. Sen. Durbin also tweeted that “Congress must act,” but he did not explain what those actions should be. Sen. Blumenthal also called for action without providing any explanation as to what that action ought to be. Sen. Feinstein struck a similar tone, tweeting: “When will we decide that we can’t accept massacres in our places of worship, schools, or at concerts? When will we actually DO something?” Sen. Murphy used his tweets to hurl invectives at senators and House members who oppose punishing law-abiding gun owners over the heinous actions of a criminal: “Can you sleep tonight, colleagues, when the price of gun lobby goodwill is this – blood soaked church and school floors, city streets?” Following the October 1 Las Vegas attack, Sen. Murphy called for universal background checks. Such checks already exist at all retail points of sale, and Murphy wanted to expand them to all private sales too. Ironically, the Vegas attacker passed background checks repeatedly in order to acquire his firearms.

But, to these self-righteous, agenda-driven Senate Dems using this horrific event to shamelessly grandstand, the facts do not matter.  They have no real solutions.  They’re just emoting, and playing on the emotions of the low-information voters (i.e. their constituents), to support their extreme liberal, anti-gun agenda.  That’s all this is.  It’s all from their worn-out playbook.  Seize on a tragedy, and play on people’s emotions to further their liberal agenda.  Sad, but not surprising…
