Missouri governor calls for expulsion of Dem senator who urged Trump assassination

Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens joined calls Friday for state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal to be expelled from the legislature after saying she hopes President Trump is assassinated. The Republican governor put out a string of tweets noting that lawmakers have called on the Democratic lawmaker to resign and urged the Senate to kick her out if she refuses. “Senator Chappelle-Nadal said she hopes the President is killed. Republicans and Democrats have called on her to resign,” he wrote. “… Last night, in an interview, she refused to apologize—twice. If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her. I believe they should.” The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Lt. Gov. Mike Parson backed the call, saying if she does not resign before an upcoming September session, he will seek her expulsion in his capacity as state Senate president. The Senate could do so with a two-thirds vote. Chappelle-Nadal made the original comment, since deleted, on Facebook. “I hope Trump is assassinated!” she wrote. Chappelle-Nadal eventually removed the post, but a screenshot was saved and shared on Twitter. In interviews with local outlets, Chapelle-Nadal said she regretted her post but not her anger at the president. She blamed her outburst on the president’s response to the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville. “I posted something on my personal Facebook and I should not have done that, and for that I am sorry for that,” Chapelle-Nadal told St. Louis television station KMOV. “But I am not going to shy away from what caused that anger at all, I’m not going to shy away from that.” The Secret Service told The St. Louis Post-Dispatch it is investigating Chapelle-Nadal’s post. Meanwhile, top Missouri Democrats – including Sen. Claire McCaskill and the chairman of the Missouri Democratic Party – also are calling on Chapelle-Nadal to resign. “I condemn it,” McCaskill told the Post-Dispatch. “It’s outrageous. And she should resign.” Missouri Party Chair Stephen Webber called Chappelle-Nadal’s comments “indefensible.” “I believe she should resign,” Webber said. But Chappelle-Nadal told KMOX Radio she won’t quit. “There is no way in hell that I’m resigning,” she said.

Of course not.  She’s your typical entitlement-minded, self-righteous, black racist, extreme liberal Democrat.  She openly said that the reason she said what she said was Trump’s fault.  Um, no.  It’s YOUR fault, Senator.  Nobody forced you to say anything.  But, being the self-righteous hypocrite she is, it’s “hell no, I won’t go.”  The Missouri Senate is overwhelmingly Republican.  They should simply expel her.  They have the votes.  And, even a couple of Dems would probably join in.  They should have that vote on Monday and remove that disgusting piece of garbage from the Missouri state Senate.

Donald Trump on Charlottesville: ‘Fake News Media Will Never Be Satisfied’

President Donald Trump defied the media for continuing to hammer him for failing to immediately condemn alt-right protesters in Charlottesville, asserting that both sides were to blame for the violence. “Made additional remarks on Charlottesville and realize once again that the #Fake News Media will never be satisfied,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Truly bad people!” Trump returned to Washington D.C. on Monday and specifically condemned neo-nazi, KKK, and white supremacist forces that attended the Charlottesville rally, calling them “criminals and thugs” who were “repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.” During an event on China policy, CNN’s Jim Acosta shouted a question to the president asking him why it took him so long to condemn hate groups. “They have been condemned,” Trump replied. “Can we ask you some more questions then, sir?” Acosta added. “It doesn’t bother me at all,” Trump replied, pointing to Acosta. “But I like real news. You’re fake news. You’re fake news.” Other reporters signaled on Twitter and on television that Trump’s statement was too little too late, accusing him of acting insincere. Reporters again shouted questions about why it took him days to denounce hate groups as he left the White House on Monday. Trump gave them a thumbs up and boarded Marine One to leave the White House.

This disingenuous, hypocritical, and self-righteous indignation by the dominantly liberal mainstream about how long it took for Trump to denounce certain groups like Neo-Nazis is beyond ridiculous.  Where were they when socialist, liberal (mostly black) hate groups like Black Lives Matter (BLM), and so on were burning down Ferguson, MO, etc?  Did Jim go after Obama when those events took place, and Obama not only didn’t condemn those groups, he sided with them oftentimes!!  No.  Of course he didn’t.  The hypocrisy and duplicity is truly breathtaking.  As we’ve already documented here at The Daily Buzz, there were fringe groups on BOTH sides who were at fault in the violence in VA over the weekend.  It was NOT just one side.  So, Trump was initially correct in NOT taking a side.  But, unfortunately, he caved to the pressure from politicians on both sides and the self-righteous media and named names.  He shouldn’t have.  And, he’s starting to realize that no matter what he does, it’ll never be enough. If Trump  found the cure for cancer, it wouldn’t be enough for the “Never Trump” crowd.  So, he shouldn’t try to pacify them…and instead just stay the course.

Less is more? Trump slows federal regs to a crawl in first six months

Just halfway through his first year in office, President Trump is delivering on a key campaign promise to cut red tape, according to a new study. The six-month review of Trump’s regulatory agenda by the American Action Forum shows the federal government practically slamming the brakes on regulation. The number of new rules is now at a record low, according to the study, in sharp contrast to the start of the Obama administration. “If you look at what’s happening in the first six months for President Trump compared to President Obama, it’s staggering,” group president Douglas Holtz-Eakin told “Fox & Friends” on Friday. On the campaign trail, then-candidate Trump promised that “for every new regulation, we’re going to cut two,” and to “get rid of all the unnecessary regulations.” The data from AAF, a conservative-leaning think tank, shows a total of 27 rules have been withdrawn so far this year, which is slightly lower than the 41 rules that were approved. But the study shows the regulatory push at the beginning of the Obama administration was roughly 20 times more costly to the U.S. economy than at the start of the current administration. The Obama administration’s first six months of regulations imposed $24.4 billion in total costs, compared with the $1.2 billion for the Trump administration. And the 41 rules approved represents a fraction of the number approved at the start of previous administrations. “The business community really feels like the beatings have stopped, Washington is not trying to put them in the bullseye, and they can go about running their businesses and not worrying about the regulations,” Holz-Eakin, who ran the Congressional Budget Office under then-President George W. Bush, said. A Fox News review of Trump’s first 100 days in office in April also showed the president following through on vows to roll back red tape. Thirteen of the 28 bills signed at the time were done under the Congressional Review Act to roll back Obama-era regulations. According to AAF, those measures overturned a series of Obama-era rules that produced annual cost savings of $1.1 billion–or $3.7 billion in lifetime cost savings. “No longer can we allow these rules and regulations to tie down our economy, chain up our prosperity, and sap our great American spirit,” Trump said in June at the Department of Transportation.

Trump signs bill to fund veterans medical care program

President Donald Trump has signed an emergency spending bill that will pump more than $2 billion into a program that allows veterans to receive private medical care at government expense. Trump, who made improving veterans care a central campaign promise, signed the VA Choice and Quality Employment Act while at his New Jersey golf club on Saturday. The bill, which addresses a budget shortfall at the Department of Veteran Affairs that threatened medical care for thousands of veterans, provides $2.1 billion to continue funding the Veterans Choice Program, which allows veterans to seek private care. Another $1.8 billion will go to core VA health programs, including 28 leases for new VA medical facilities. “Today is another milestone in our work to transform the VA where we’re doing record-setting business,” Trump said. The Choice program was put in place after a 2014 wait-time scandal that was discovered at the Phoenix VA hospital and spread throughout the country. Veterans waited weeks or months for appointments while phony records covered up the lengthy waits. The program allows veterans to receive care from outside doctors if they must wait at least 30 days for an appointment or drive more than 40 miles to a VA facility. VA Secretary David Shulkin has warned that without legislative action, the Choice program would run out of money by mid-August, causing delays in health care for thousands of veterans. The bill will extend the program for six months. Costs will be paid for by trimming pensions for some Medicaid-eligible veterans and collecting fees for housing loans. Veterans groups applauded the bill being signed, though some criticized the delay and the cost. “We’re grateful President Trump is taking decisive action to ensure veterans using the Choice Program won’t see lapses in their care due to a lack of funding,” said Dan Caldwell, policy director for Concerned Veterans for America. “Unfortunately, this bill took far too long to get to the president’s desk and is $1.8 billion more expensive than it needed to be.” Leaders of the House Veterans Affairs Committee said the six-month funding plan was urgently needed and would give Congress more time to debate broader issues over the VA’s future. While the bill may avert a shutdown to Choice, disputes over funding may signal bigger political fights to come. During the 2016 campaign, Trump criticized the VA for long wait times and mismanagement, saying he would give veterans more options in seeing outside providers. Shulkin announced the budget shortfall last month, citing unexpected demand from veterans for private care and poor budget planning. To slow spending, the department last month instructed VA medical centers to limit the number of veterans it sent to private doctors. Currently, more than 30 percent of VA appointments are in the private sector, up from fewer than 20 percent in 2014. The VA has an annual budget of about $180 billion.

Some great news that the dominantly liberal mainstream media isn’t even reporting.  Kudos to President Trump for signing this bill!  Outstanding!    🙂

Bakers refused to make pro-Trump birthday cake for 9-year-old boy

A boy whose letter to President Trump made national headlines last month reportedly wanted a pro-Trump cake for his birthday party, but his mother was unable to find a baker willing to fulfill the order. At the July 26 White House press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders read a letter from a boy named Dylan who said Mr. Trump was his favorite president. When she later released the letter publicly, the boy’s last name was blacked out. The only identifying clue was that everyone called him “Pickle.” The media scrambled to verify the letter’s authenticity, and the next day, The Washington Post confirmed it was sent by 9-year-old Dylan Harbin of California. The Post reported that, when Dylan asked for a “Donald Trump cake” for his birthday, his mother “made him one herself, because she couldn’t find a bakery willing and able to do it.” Michael P. Farris is president, CEO and general counsel of the Alliance Defending Freedom, the Christian legal group defending Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker who was sued by a gay couple for declining to make their same-sex wedding cake. Mr. Farris wondered why bakers are allowed to decline to make birthday cakes supporting Mr. Trump, but not wedding cakes supporting same-sex marriage.

Good, rhetorical, point!

5th Trump judicial nominee confirmed, outpacing Obama, Bush

President Trump has outpaced his immediate predecessors when it comes to having his choices for federal judgeships confirmed. The Senate this week approved a fifth Trump nominee, placing Trump on a faster pace for approvals than either President Barack Obama or President George W. Bush. Most recently, Alabama lawyer Kevin Christopher Newsom was confirmed to a seat on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, on a 66-31 vote, with 16 Democrats joining the GOP on the affirmative side, the Washington Times reported. Newsom was the third Trump pick for circuit judge to be approved so far. Combined with one district judge and the Supreme Court appointment of Neil Gorsuch, the Trump administration and the Republican-led Senate are well ahead of the normal pace for judicial approvals. “The Trump administration has moved faster on filling judicial vacancies compared to the past administrations, thanks to its commitment to working with and extensively consulting all senators, regardless of political affiliation, to select high-caliber nominees,” Kelly Love, a White House spokesperson, told the newspaper. Obama had no judges confirmed during his first six months at the White House and it took him until November 2009 to get three circuit nominees approved by the Senate. Bush didn’t have three picks — one circuit judge and two district judges — confirmed until August of his first term. Trump began his bid to reshape the lower federal courts in early May, when the White House announced 10 judicial nominees that officials described at the time as Trump’s “third wave of federal judicial appointments.” Two of the nominees originally were on the list of 21 candidates that the Trump transition team considered for the Supreme Court vacancy left by Antonin Scalia’s death. That seat was ultimately filled by Gorsuch. The two nomiees were Justice Joan Larsen of the Michigan Supreme Court, nominated to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati; and Justice David Stras of the Minnesota Supreme Court, nominated to the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis. The other nominees, in addition to Newsom, were Amy Coney Barrett, a Notre Dame law professor nominated to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago; John Bush, a Louisville lawyer nominated to the 6th Circuit; Judge David C. Nye, nominated to the U.S. District Court for Idaho; Scott L. Palk, a former federal prosecutor nominated to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma; Damien Schiff, nominated to federal claims court; Dabney L. Friedrich, nominated to U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia; and Judge Terry Moorer, nominated to the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama.

Great news!  Judge Newsom is a member of the Federalist Society.  So, we expect great things from this young (44 years old) judge.  Excellent!!    🙂

Savage: Civil War If Trump Taken Down

Millions of Americans will revolt if the globalists remove President Trump from office or render him powerless, radio host Michael Savage warned. Americans could even “resort to mob violence” because they’ll have nothing to lose once they “are finally aware of the fact that they’ve been tricked by their society, and that no matter how hard they work as middle-class people” they have nothing to gain, the Savage Nation host said Friday. “That is what’s going to happen in this country,” he pointed out. “You have not yet seen mob violence in this country. You’ve seen some mob violence instigated by George Soros’ mobs.” “But you haven’t seen the thing I’m telling you is coming in this country. You haven’t seen the ‘Day of the Locust’ yet.” Savage was referring to the 1939 novel The Day of the Locust, which analyzes the violent rage of Americans who slaved away their entire lives only to realize that the American dream was impossible for them to achieve. “When Eddie finally gets up and says that’s the end of the road, and Eddie’s eyes turn red, and blood is in his eyes, Eddie will turn this society upside down,” the Savage Nation host said. “And if [the left] take(s) Trump down, through Mueller or through any other source and deny Eddie his vote, there will be a civil war in this country.” “I’m warning you. All of you leftists who think you’re going to steal our vote, you’re wrong.” “…But if you do the next step and steal our president, I warn you. You’ve seen nothing yet,” he added. “You will see the ‘Day of the Locust’ in this country.” That said, the battle lines for a civil war were drawn even before Trump entered politics. “Not since the run-up to the Civil War has the nation been more divided,” Savage wrote in his 2014 book Stop the Coming Civil War. “The battle lines have been drawn: The haves against the have-nots.” However, the globalists may want a civil war: it’ll give them the chance to “transform” America into an EU-style technocratic tyranny which they control. “Unfortunately for individual people living in this new system, it will also require authoritarian and centralized control over all aspects of life, from cradle to grave,” wrote Patrick Wood in his book Technocracy Rising.

Michael is definitely onto something here..  There IS a huge cultural, political, and racial divide in this country.  But, it happened on Obama’s watch; NOT Trump’s.   So, let’s be very clear about that.  Trump’s extraordinary victory at the polls last November was a result of the “forgotten men and women” (i.e. the white working class, in large part), who were fed up and finally showed up in enough numbers to elect Trump.  Blue collar Americans (historically a Democrat constituency) elected Trump; NOT “the Russians.”  And don’t be fooled by fake news and phony polls on CNN or MSNBC.  Those on the Trump Train aren’t going anywhere.  So, IF Mueller (who shouldn’t be the Special Prosecutor, due to his conflict of interests, as we’ve documented on numerous occasions here at The Daily Buzz), or some other entity bounces Trump out of office, or makes him unable to carry out his agenda, there most certainly WILL be a revolt of some sort.
