Donald Trump Has The Lowest Approval Ratings of Any Incoming President.   Freedom of Press

David Horowitz: Trump Begins War on Political Correctness With 'Big Agenda'
He's yet to be sworn in as the nation's 45th commander in chief, but Donald Trump has already broken the mold of the Republican Party establishment and is reviving the U.S. economy, says David Horowitz, author of the just-released bestselling new book, "Big Agenda: President Trump's Plan to Save America."
"Trump has already changed the Republican Party . . . he's so successful at breaking the mold and attacking political correctness," Horowitz said Tuesday on Newsmax TV's "The Steve Malzberg Show."
Horowitz said his new book reveals Trump's first-100-days strategy and a long-term plan to eliminate the Democrats as a serious political force.
"I think that he's going to exceed expectations because the expectations are so distorted by the Democrats. He isn't even in office and already he's reviving the economy."
Horowitz — a card-carrying liberal turned staunch conservative and founder of the The David Horowitz Freedom Center — praised what he says is Trump's impressive push to create new jobs and keep companies from relocating outside of the United States.
"As you know, Republicans won the House in 2010 by big margins, bigger ones in 2014 and then they voted for all of Obama's programs and the reason was they were scared.
"They didn't want to be called racist, they didn't want to be called obstructionists, and that's kind of what I deal with in my book, how he has changed the mentality of this party and energized this whole conservative base."
In his book, Horowitz presents a White House battle plan to "halt the Democrats' march to extinguish the values America holds dear."          
The plan includes the restoration of Guantanamo, resumption of the Keystone XL pipeline project and end of amnesty for illegal immigrants.
It also calls for "surprising" appointments to the Supreme Court and federal judiciary and changes to the Affordable Care Act and EPA.
"This is a manual for fighting the left over the next four years. The big battles are actually coming, not the ones that are over, the ones that are coming," Horowitz said.
Horowitz also believes Trump's controversial plan to move the American Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem is solid.
"Jerusalem is a Jewish city and it's been a Jewish city for thousands of years, it's the center for Judaism. The Muslim claim on Jerusalem is a claim of conquest and lies. Mohammed never visited Jerusalem. It's not in the Quran. People refer to it as the third holiest site in Islam," Horowitz said.
"It's only a holy site because they conquered it and when they had control of it, they basically threw the Jews out and desecrated those holy sites."

Democrats: Left in the Lurch ----  Obama's Legacy: A Broken Democratic Party

The curious decline and uncertain future of the Democratic Party
When President-elect Donald Trump replaces Barack Obama on January 20, the Democratic Party will find itself more removed from power than at almost any point since the party’s creation.
Scorned by the same voters who once embraced the New Deal, built the Great Society, and put their hope in the nation’s first black president, Democrats are now locked out of power in Washington and out of two-thirds of state legislative chambers across the country.
Simply put, Democrats’ once vaunted coalition of the ascendant — younger, multiethnic, educated, and urban — failed them in 2016, and in 2014 and 2010 before that. That coalition proved to have major handicaps, part demographic and part geographic, that have been hollowing out the party for years.
Democrats may find cold comfort in Hillary Clinton’s nearly 3 million popular vote lead and the fact that more people call themselves “liberal” than ever polled. And they can, and do, fairly protest a system of representative government that allows the government to be so unrepresentative of the popular vote. But it will be up to Democrats to solve their own problem within the current rules.

This Cover Up Involving Loretta Lynch Has Everyone Asking Questions maga2016 2 days ago

The Department of Justice’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz announced an investigation into the handling of the criminal inquiry of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
But one official’s conduct is escaping scrutiny.
And it’s causing everyone to ask some serious questions.
When Attorney General Loretta Lynch spoke with former President Bill Clinton on her government airplane – just days before FBI Director James Comey announced he wasn’t recommending charges be brought against the former Secretary of State – many saw their meeting as a sign the investigation was a sham.
Critics believed Lynch could have been giving Bill Clinton a heads up on the status of the investigation or other inside information.
But her suspicious conduct will not be part of the Justice Department review.
And some Republicans are ripping that decision.
Politico reported:
“One Republican, however, said the investigation was not broad enough, protesting the Horowitz did not plan to investigate the role played by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who became the subject of controversy after her tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton just days before Comey made his initial recommendation public.
“It’s good to hear that the Inspector General agreed to my request to look at multiple concerns that I raised throughout the investigation,” said Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley said in a Thursday statement. “Conspicuously absent, though, is any specific reference to the Attorney General’s failure to recuse herself from the probe, particularly after her meeting with former President Clinton. It’s in the public interest to provide a full accounting of all the facts that led to the FBI and Justice Department’s decision-making regarding the investigation.”
Some critics contend the Justice Department is using the investigation to further delegitimize President-elect Trump.
While the conduct of some officials which benefited Clinton is under review – such as high-ranking Justice Department official Patrick Kadzik emailing Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta with updates of the case – the media focus will be Director Comey’s decision to write a letter to Congress informing them the Bureau had discovered more Clinton emails on a laptop belonging to ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner.
Democrats regarded this move as the deciding factor in the election and have been hounding Comey ever since.
Michael Horowitz – the Justice Department Inspector General who is conducting the review – is an Obama appointee, and many critics believe this inquiry will officially rebuke Director Comey for keeping with his word to inform Congress if any new developments arose in the Clinton email scandal.
But Lynch’s conduct was roundly criticized.
Even Democrats blasted her decision.
Former Obama chief strategist David Axelrod tweeted his disapproval.
And Delaware Senator Chris Coons criticized her meeting with former President Clinton.

  David Axelrod

I take @LorettaLynch & @billclinton at their word that their convo in Phoenix didn't touch on probe. But foolish to create such optics.
CBS News reported:
“Sen. Chris Coons, D-Delaware, said in an interview on CNN that she should have told the former president, “‘Look, I recognize you have a long record of leadership on fighting crime but this is not the time for us to have that conversation. After the election is over, I’d welcome your advice.'”
Yet her conduct is not under review.
Which leads many to believe the Justice Department’s review is designed to paint Comey’s conduct as unethical so Democrats can continue to harp on Trump winning a “tainted” election.

Congressional investigation finds Planned Parenthood sold skin of Down syndrome baby    By Katie Jan 16, 2017
Photo: Pixabay (CC0)

The House of Representatives Select Investigative Panel has published its report on its investigation into America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. Unfortunately and unsurprisingly, their findings are both highly disturbing and completely criminal.

Here are just a few of the horrifying things the House panel uncovered:
  • An Advanced Biosciences Resources “technician” working at a Planned Parenthood clinic reportedly harvested and sold the skin of an aborted Down syndrome baby for $325. Unless it somehow cost Planned Parenthood $325 to remove and store baby skin, selling it for that price is a federal crime. The same baby’s leg was sold for another $325.
  • Stem Express paid $55 to a Planned Parenthood clinic to harvest an intact aborted baby’s brain. However, they then sold the brain to a researcher for over $3,000, turning a 2,800% profit. The law clearly states that it is illegal to make a profit providing organs or any part of a human for research or medical treatment. Further, the House investigation found evidence that Stem Express sold baby parts to customers in advance, before an abortion had even taken place.
  • If that’s not disgusting enough, the panel found evidence that Planned Parenthood would routinely share confidential patient information with companies like Stem Express — who in turn would share the information with clients — whenever there was a lot of money to be made selling aborted baby parts.
  • Remember mass murderer Kermit Gosnell? There’s a Texas abortion doctor following in his footsteps. According to one employee’s secured testimony, the doctor would perform around 40 late second- or third-trimester abortions every week.
  • Planned Parenthood’s consent form falsely told vulnerable patients that their aborted
    baby’s harvested parts would be used to find a cure for AIDS.

    Again: these actions are completely illegal. Planned Parenthood should be shut down for good.

Left Wing Vegan Denied Swiss Passport Because She’s ‘Too Annoying’

Image: Screenshot
My heart leapt when I saw this headline on Breitbart. The Swiss are very sensible. Every decision is made by the people through an unique system called Direct Democracy. They keep mostly to themselves, and definitely out of the European Union. They make foreigners stick to their rules, as they did here by making Muslim girls swim in the same pool as Muslim boys. They make delicious chocolate. And they have the toughest citizenship laws in the world.
Someone should have mentioned this to Nancy Holten. Villagers in her village, Gipf-Oberfrick in the canton of Aarau, voted by 206 to 144 to reject Ms. Holten’s application for citizenship in 2015, and have now rejected that application a second time. A left-wing yoga-embracing Dutch vegan who has lived in Switzerland since she was a child, Holten has been denied a Swiss passport because locals in her adoptive town find her too annoying!
Nancy Holten, 42, is a self-described animal rights activist who has campaigned against the Swiss tradition of cow bells, calling them cruel.
Despite living in the country since the age of eight, and speaking fluent Swiss German, local residents vetoed her application of citizenship, saying they were “fed up” with her challenging their traditions.
Nancy has also campaigned against other Swiss traditions including hunting, pig racing, and loud church bells.
Local politician Tanja Suter said Ms. Holten had a “big mouth” and she does not deserve a Swiss passport “if she irritates us and does not respect our traditions”.
Ms Holten herself admits: “I think I spoke my mind too often, and I say it out too loud.”
Under Switzerland’s highly decentralised constitution, local towns and regions grant citizenship rather than the central government, and some give citizens a vote on who gets a passport.
Apparently being a whiny, sanctimonious, social justice warrior doesn’t qualify.

I'll ask again....why does Hollywood think that OUR OPINION or VOTE is worth any less than theirs ???

Hollywood Vs. the 'Fascist' Election Result  Brent Bozell Posted: Jan 13, 2017

Hollywood Vs. the 'Fascist' Election Result
Critics of the Hollywood left chuckled when Hillary Clinton lost the election. Those dramatic videos full of celebrity ardor for the Clintons flopped. Rarely has there been a more pronounced disconnect. It turned to belly laughs when those celebrities responded by making more videos.
First, the celebrity leftists made a video urging the Electoral College to actually reject the election results. When it dawned on them (Has it dawned on them?) that America wasn't going to reverse itself because they said so, they gave that up.
Now they want to derail President-elect Donald Trump's administration, so out came a celebrity video promoting MoveOn that was full of pompous celebs urging Congress to reject Trump's Cabinet nominees. They announced: "The majority of Americans, regardless of who they voted for, did not vote for racism, for sexism or for xenophobia. And yet Donald Trump won." Only in La-La Land does that incoherence make sense.
But the ad that takes the celebrity cake appeared in the Jan. 11 edition of the Washington Post. Page A-5 carried a full-page advertisement. Written large on the top half were the words: "No! In the name of humanity, we refuse to accept a fascist America!"
We think they're upset.

Maine governor to Rep. John Lewis: You need a history lesson

PORTLAND, Maine — Democratic U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a civil rights leader who says he doesn't see Donald Trump as a "legitimate president," should be grateful for all that Republican presidents have done for black people, GOP Gov. Paul LePage said Tuesday.
LePage, who's white, said on WVOM-FM that the black Democratic Georgia congressman needs a history lesson.
"We're sick of the silver-tongued people. How about John Lewis last week? Criticizing the president?" LePage said. "You know, I will just say this: John Lewis ought to look at history. It was Abraham Lincoln that freed the slaves. It was Rutherford B. Hayes and Ulysses S. Grant that fought against Jim Crow laws. A simple thank you would suffice."
Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and pushed for the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery. But historians say LePage is wrong about Jim Crow laws.
Jim Crow laws didn't exist during the Grant administration and an electoral deal that put Hayes in office led to the end of Reconstruction and the removal of federal troops, setting the stage for the creation of Jim Crow laws that followed, said Colby professor Dan Shea.
"Paul LePage is going to give John Lewis a tutorial on the history of black oppression in the United States? That's rich," Shea said.
Lewis, a leader of the Civil Rights Movement who suffered a fractured skull while leading the march in Selma, Alabama, said last week that he would not attend Trump's inauguration.
"You know, I believe in forgiveness. I believe in trying to work with people. It will be hard. It's going to be very difficult. I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president," Lewis said in an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press" that aired Sunday.
LePage on Tuesday also had harsh words for a Maine congresswoman who is among more than 40 House Democrats so far to say they are skipping Trump's inauguration. He said Rep. Chellie Pingree should resign if she doesn't attend.
"They're trying to bully us out of believing our Constitution," LePage said of Democrats.
Pingree said Monday that "President-elect Trump's actions go beyond any kind of reasonable debate_they threaten the constitutional values our country is based on."
Her office didn't immediately respond to request for comment Tuesday.
This story has been corrected to show LePage said, "A simple thank you would suffice," not "A simple thank you should suffice."

Philadelphia Schools Fined 2.3 Million For Blatant Anti-White Discrimination  By

A six year lawsuit involving security contracts going to companies based on the racial makeup of their owners has been settled, and the courts have found that a Philadelphia school district is guilty of racism against white people.
The events happened in 2010 when a Newton based security firm, Security & Data Technologies Inc (SDT), was offered a $7.5 million no-bid contract to install security cameras in multiple schools, labeled as ‘persistently dangerous,’ in the Philadelphia area.
As SDT was finishing the preliminary work, Superintendent Arlene Ackerman, who passed away in 2013, chose to award the contract to Philadelphia based security firm, IBS Communications by claiming it to be an emergency contract.
The investigation into the matter discovered that there was no emergency that was taking place, as these emergency contracts are generally reserved for things like a tornado, floods, or other natural disasters.
Even more bizarre, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer, is the fact that IBS did not ask for the work, nor was it on a state list of companies eligible for no-bid contracts.
This begs the question, then, as to why IBS was granted the multi-million dollar no bid assignment when another company had already been granted the contract and begun the work.
According to John Byars, a former top district procurement official, Superintendent Ackerman, who President Obama once praised as doing a “great job,” was unhappy with the racial makeup of the people at the top of SDT, and wanted to award the contract to a company headed by a minority.
Byars claims that Ackerman stated a change in plans so that, “all these white boys didn’t get contracts.”
As a result, the school district of Philadelphia has been found guilty of racial discrimination, and is forced to pay SDT $2.3 million in lost revenue and damages.

Loretta Lynch Just Made A Major Move To Sabotage Trump

The left refuses to accept the results of the election.
Every statement and move by Democrats since November 8th has been designed to undermine the incoming Trump administration.
And Loretta Lynch oversaw a major move that left many conservatives furious.
The Department of Justice Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, announced an investigation into the conduct of FBI officials – including Director James Comey – during the Clinton email scandal.
Politico reported:
The Justice Department’s internal watchdog is launching a broad review of how the FBI handled its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
The review’s scope includes allegations that FBI Director James Comey violated established procedures when he publicly discussed the bureau’s findings and when he sent Congress updates shortly before the election about new evidence agents had discovered.
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz announced in a statement Thursday that his investigation will also explore whether FBI and Justice Department employees improperly leaked information prior to the election.
Clinton and aides on her Democratic presidential campaign have blamed Comey’s pre-election revelation that he was reviving the email investigation as a key factor in her narrow loss to Republican nominee Donald Trump.
A statement from Horowitz’s office said he was initiating the inquiry “in response to requests from numerous Chairmen and Ranking Members of Congressional oversight committees, various organizations, and members of the public.”
The Justice Department is including some conduct Republicans would like to see investigated viewed as a fig leaf to cover up the real reason this probe was initiated – to undermine Donald Trump.


The feds spend your money studying...monkey drool?

11 January 2017  NormanL
The feds spend your money studying...monkey drool?
Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake has released his collection (link is external) of wasteful government spending (link is external) programs, and it makes for infuriating reading:

Sen. Jeff Flake's Wastebook: PORK√©mon Go highlighted “50 examples of outrageous and wasteful federal spending amounting to more than $5 billion.” Science agencies again figured heavily into the list. 
At a time of record debt, and when the government struggled to find funds to combat the Zika virus, Flake said, “the nation’s most prestigious science agencies were squandering resources already available by investigating matters most would consider obvious or even absurd.”
The National Institutes of Health, for example, “spent nearly $1 million to study the evolution of monkey drool and another $230,000 to determine if the color red makes female monkeys feel more romantic,” the report said.
The National Science Foundation funded scientists “playing with dolls to prove what every child already knows—girls are more likely to play with Barbie dolls than boys.”
NIH gave out $5 million in grants to study the habits of college students and find that “fraternity brothers drink, smoke and generally party more than other students,” and $3.5 million to learn that people are afraid of the dentist because “fear of pain has been shown to be a critical component.”
The Commerce Department’s Economic Development Administration came under fire for a $1.7 million grant to help build a National Comedy Center in upstate New York featuring holograms, down the street from a museum devoted to comedian Lucille Ball.
The truly sad thing is how these examples represent just a fraction of the money -- your money -- the federal government tosses down the drain each year. Ending it is difficult, as wasteful spending has been highlighted, mocked, investigated, and debated since the founding of the Republic.
But that doesn't mean we should stop highlighting, mocking, investigating, and debating it.

Obama Fades Away As Trump Laughs At His Enemies  Kurt Schlichter  Posted: Jan 16, 2017

Obama Fades Away As Trump Laughs At His Enemies
America’s Nobody-in-Chief is finally going away, his last spasm of rhetorical onanism completely overshadowed by Donald Trump neatly turning the tables on the media purveyors of that fake dossier that tried and failed to paint the PEOTUS as the second coming of Bob Crane.
Good riddance. And welcome President Trump. I have a simple two-word request for you:
Avenge us!
The last two months have been hysterically funny as President Faily McWorsethancarter desperately tried to remain relevant. He’s taken leading from behind to a whole new level – he’s actually now behind behind. No one is listening to him. No one cares. While Obama wanders the halls of power, looking for people to pat him on the back, Trump is out there leading. Carrier – saved. Appointments – heading to confirmation. CNN – dissed n’ dismissed. One tweet from Trump and he resets the paradigm like a boss. Ask L.L. Bean. It’s getting hard to handle all this #winning.
While the helpless mainstream media frets over its irrelevance, Obama is left urging his minions to throw little tantrums out in the Deep State, trying to do just a little more damage to this country before he is finally exiled to comfortable obscurity. But payback is a Pelosi; soon Trump’s pen and phone are going to be wielded by the guy who Team Integrity has been calling “illegitimate” since the moment Hillary lost and it again became patriotic to question election results. All that last-minute regulatory nonsense is getting overturned. America will be a beacon of freedom to Cubans once again. The Western land thefts will be undone. We’ll drill, baby, drill. It’s going to be awesome, as will the tsunami of liberal tears.


They should've been long gone, but bet they're all still in the U.S.

Where Are They Now? These 23 Celebrities Said They'd Move If Trump Won 
Back in September, my colleague Catherine Dunn published this nice compilation of 23 celebrities who said they would be leaving the country if Donald Trump were elected president. Given that Trump was indeed elected president and will be inaugurated on Friday, I thought it would be prudent to check in and see if any of these celebrities had stayed true to their word.
It's time to find out: have they decided that America is actually already pretty great?

Lee Greenwood Says Performers May Regret Passing on Chance to Perform at Inauguration  

© Provided by Variety
Lee Greenwood, who will perform at inaugural events this week for President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, suggested that those who turn down the chance will later regret missing the opportunity.
He said that he had not heard that Jennifer Holliday, announced as a performer at the opening concert at the Lincoln Memorial on Thursday, backed out of the appearance on Saturday, citing the negative reaction she got on social media.
“She is going to regret not going in the future,” Greenwood said. “You don’t get this invitation very often.”
He added, “To say no — I can’t imagine the embarrassment she might have later on” for passing it up.
He called it a “thrill” to witness the peaceful transition of power, at an event that he said was unique in the world. “You need to support him and all the things he plans to do for America, and not bow down to what is said on social media and gossip. I feel sorry for people who would turn down this invitation.”


Massive Gator Spotted in Nature Preserve in Florida  Lakeland Police say a massive alligator was spotted in the Circle B Bar Reserve  Jan. 16, 2017)

Footage of an alligator that looks almost too massive to be real was posted to the Lakeland Police's Facebook page Monday.
According to the post, Kim Joiner was taking an afternoon stroll Sunday in the Circle B Bar Reserve when the gator was spotted.
The big gator is seen lumbering across a grassy path as a group of spectators take photos.
Lakeland Police told NBC 6 that the gator is real.
