Iowa: Adolfo Martinez Sentenced 16 years in Prison for Burning Homosexual Rainbow Flag
12-19-19, Iowa (LifeSiteNews) — Adolfo Martinez, 30, of Ames, Iowa was arrested on June 11, 2019 for stealing and burning a church’s LGBT rainbow “pride” homosexual flag. He has been sentenced to prison for 16 years. The court ruled Adolfo committed a “hate crime:” arson plus reckless use of explosives or fire. According to the Des Moines Register, Martinez stole the flag, which had been hanging at Ames United Church of Christ. The “hate crime” charges were added because Martinez “is suspected of criminal mischief against someone’s property because of ‘what it represents as far as sexual orientation.’” Many responding to the news on Twitter thought the punishment was disproportionate to the crime:
“Would stealing an American flag and setting it on fire earn anyone prison time?” ... “Absolutely not.”
The Washington Times - Why does the left cheer when the American flag is burned? No one goes to jail for that, but they do for burning an activist movement's flag? Abomination!
Nancy Pelosi won't send articles of impeachment to the Senate
She's stalling hoping to get a conviction - not lookin' good now
12-19-19, DailyMail -- US Congress Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi says she won't send articles of impeachment to the Senate until Republicans promise a 'fair' trial. Whether or not it's EVER sent over to the Senate for a trial ... the verdict that President Donald Trump WAS IMPEACHED is on his record regardless if there's no conviction just like Pres Clinton. Sad. Speaking on the Senate floor, Mitch McConnell a short time before Pelosi,said that she and her fellow Democrats were getting "cold feet" and were "afraid" to send their "shoddy" articles of impeachment to the Senate. Pelosi shot back, "The Constitution's framers suspected that "we might might have rogue president. I don't think they suspected that we'd have a rogue president and a rogue leader in the Senate at the same time."
McConnell later sought out reporters to say, "It's beyond me how the speaker and the Democrat leader in the Senate [Chuck Schumer [NY] think withholding the articles of impeachment and not sending them over gives them leverage - is beyond me. Frankly, I'm not anxious to have the trial, if she thinks her case is so weak she doesn't want to send it over, throw me into that briar patch." More from ABC-Chicago here
FISA Court Judge Colyer:
The bottom line is without actual legal accountability for the fraud, everything is just a matter of words without consequence. Judge Collyer is angry, but so what… is she going to hold anyone accountable? Thus the frustration outlined by Devin Nunes last weekend. Judicial opinions, strongly worded letters, court orders, insufferable justifications, and government promises of corrective actions are meaningless when real Americans are harmed by gross abuses of power - just ask Carter Page.

An Apology To Carter Page
12-16-19, JonathanTurley.org -- The case of Carter Page is far from the first time that the Deep State has violated the law to achieve their objectives and gotten away with it. Former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page has never been given a fair hearing, let alone a trial, to clear his name. As the two political parties spin the results of a report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, one matter remains unaddressed. Someone needs to apologize to Page.
Only two in over 10,000 applications were turned down by the FISA Court.
According to ABC News, 3-4-17: Annually in the USA more than a thousand applications for electronic surveillance, all signed by the attorney general, and the vast majority are approved. Example: from 2009 to 2015, more than 10,700 applications for electronic surveillance were submitted, and only one was denied in its entirety. The wire tapping request of presidential candidate businessman Donald J. Trump's offices is very troubling as the FISA Court turned down President Obama’s Administration’s first request to wire tap his offices that was evidently signed off on by Attorney General Loretta Lynch. With only two applications denied out of 10,700 from 2009 through 2015, the fact that the Obama Administration’s application was denied by the FISA Court is very disturbing. The odds of this happening were 0.02% . More here from Gateway Pundit
Devin Nunes had it right on Sunday…. shut down the FISA court!
12-15-19, ConservativeTreeHouse.com -- I think Devin Nunez is brave, and afraid, but goes forward in spite of well founded fear. ... until such time as the FBI cures their ailment, the FISA desk is shut down indefinitely on the grounds of fraudulent behavior by a still-operating organization that has not changed course or personnel.
State of Virginia USA Has Sanctuary County & Cities
The state of Virginia continues to defeat the majority of illegal immigrant legislation. The state wants to leave things up to the feds and don't want to take action on their own. Much of the state just doesn't care enough about the illegal immigrants to do anything about them. Virginia cannot have Sanctuary Cities because the Commonwealth is bound by the Dillon Rule, which means that no locality can have a law that violates state law.
22 Virginia Counties Sanctuary
11-30-19, Breitbart -- Nearly two dozen counties in Virginia have declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status ahead of Democrats taking control of the state legislature in 2020. Gun control Democrats won the night on November 5, 2019, securing enough seats to take control of the Virginia legislature. Gov. Ralph Northam (D-same guy said okay to let baby born alive die) reacted to the victory by planning a war on guns. The laws they want have proven ineffective elsewhere...
12-17-19, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell [R] is rejecting the Democrats' push for fresh impeachment witnesses against Pres Trump as they're making a last-ditch plea to “turn back from the cliff" of Wednesday's 12/18/19 expected vote to send the case to the Senate for trial. McConnell effectively slapped the door shut on Sen. Chuck Schumer [D-NY], who wants to call top White House officials for the Senate trial, which is set to start next year if the House impeaches Trump this week. McConnell said, “If House Democrats’ case is this deficient, this thin, the answer is not for the judge and jury to cure it here in the Senate. The answer is that the House should not impeach on this basis in the first place.''
8-2-17, Politico -- Disgraced former FBI Dir James Comey who was hired by Obama & fired by Trump lands a lucrative book deal with Flatiron Books. Comey’s shameful and despicable book: 4-13-18, The Hill -- Some things are more important than book profits and movie deals, but not to despicable James Comey who’s book, “A Higher Loyalty' started out at $29.99 now five bucks at Amazon - clearly a failure of a book. It is a shameful, vain and horribly ill-advised book that anyone who has already paid for it could ask for his or her money back.
IG Report Finds FBI Doctored Evidence Lying to the FISA
12-9-19, RedState.com -- Dept of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz' 476 page report found that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) deliberately doctored evidence it presented to the nation’s top spy court in order to gain authority to spy on a key Trump affiliate. …While the report does not go so far as to definitively claim bias against Trump in the investigation (mostly due to the ridiculously high standard of proof Horowitz set), it is still a damning rebuke of FBI misconduct.
Anyone claiming this exonerates James Comey or clears the department is lying to you. We also know that Durham’s investigation is heating up and that he claims to have evidence Horowitz doesn’t have.
DOJ inspector general: Comey 'violated' FBI rules
8-29-19, WashExaminer -- The Justice Dept inspector general released a scathing report on former FBI Dir James Comey's  notes memorializing his conversations with Pres Trump, finding that he arranged for them to be released to the media. Comey, was U.S. attorney for the So District of New York in early 2000s. He became FBI director in 2013, under Obama leading the investigation into then Sec of State Mrs Clinton's emails. Inspector Gen Horowitz faulted Comey saying his actions "We conclude that Comey’s retention, handling & dissemination of certain memos violated Dept and FBI policies and his FBI Employment Agreement." Horowitz criminally referred Comey to the Justice Department for his conduct, but the agency declined to prosecute.
USA Paid to Rebuild Europe
1947 Marshall Plan Tariffs
The U.S. was a sucker to keep letting the process remain in place while we lost our manufacturing base to overseas incentives. The investment process from Wall Street (removal of Glass-Stegal) only made the process much more severe and faster. Wall Street was now investing in companies whose best bet (higher profit return) was to pour money overseas. This process created the “USA Rust Belt.”
Fast forward to 2017 through today, and President Trump is now engaged in a massive and multi-dimensional effort to re-balance the entire global wealth dynamic. By putting tariffs on foreign imports he has counter balanced the never-ending Marshal Plan trade program and demanded renegotiation(s). Trump’s goal is reciprocity; however, the EU and Asia, specifically China, don’t want to give up a decades-long multi-generational advantage. One could argue that China’s rise happened inside this period, and as a consequence they have no comprehension of an economic history without the institutional advantages. They’ve never competed with the U.S. under any terms of equivalence or fairness; they’ve only known the advantages. Combine that with the Chinese communist mindset and you get the extreme severity of their position.
No-one, ever, could take on all these interests; the EU, Asia, World Bank, IMF, China, Russia, Iran, U.S. Congress, Democrats, Wall Street, Lobbyists, Hollywood, Corporate Media (foreign and domestic) and the ankle-biters in Never Trump -- all are/were aligned against Main Street USA and against President Trump. They say he’s only one outnumbered man; yet somehow, as unreal as it seems, he’s the one who appears to have them surrounded. Incredible. Lord knows we can’t spare this man. He fights!
Many believe God placed him for such a time as this; the Lord receives our prayers for him, his family and his staff.

Kate Smith Statue a casualty like Joe Paterno, Frank Rizzo
4-22-19, PHIL-Inquirer -- Outside Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia; on April 19, 2019 the statue of the 1930s singer Kate Smith [popular especially because of here recording of “God Bless America”] was draped & covered while allegations of her racism was investigated. Kate Smith is but the latest casualty in the continuing battle with invisible forces who would destroy those who were once praised and admired in America.
She joins the ranks of Joe Paterno, Frank Rizzo and countless Civil War generals whose fame had suddenly turned to shame. They are but victims of nameless people who prefer to destroy rather than honor the past. No one is immune from these people and it takes only one generation, to rewrite history. Today’s heroes are ever vulnerable to those dark forces with a mob mentality who tear down but don't build up as the next breaking news may mean another broken statue. — C. T. Howes, Havertown
12-11-19, While the crazy Dems struggle trying to impeach Pres Trump - [are these Democrats bi-polar??] U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) reached on a deal over the U.S.-Mexico-Canada allowing a vote in Congress and it passed; but final details for the trade pact were still being ironed out. By approving the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), [replaced NAFTA] Pelosi helped Pres Trump fulfill yet another campaign promise - another case of “promises made, promises kept.” [Note: makes me think of God's strong delusion 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12]
The 'Hate Trump' agenda by the Democrats has gone way too far - the voters are sick of it
12-10-19, There is simply no rationale other than pure hate that could cause politicians to behave such as the liberal Democrats are behaving. Apparently, they are going to pander to their base with their unrealistic promises and pie in the sky ideas for the impeachment, presidential primary and then the general election will be nothing but Trump, Russia and 2016.
NYPOST: Impeachment Fiasco a Dem Gift to President Trump
That is unless they decide to actually act like politicians caring for American citizens and the nation.
Although, Adam & Nancy have pulled off a 'miracle of sorts' - the Dems and Reps are in agreement - this hatred has gone too far and they don't want Pres Trump to be impeached!
ELIZABETH WARREN SAYS SHE WANTS TO REMOVE ELECTORAL COLLEGE FOR "EVERY VOTE TO MATTER"
3-18-19, Newsweek -- In Jackson, Mississippi, presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren [D-MA] said about voting rights, with an audience member citing 23 felonies that prevent convicted criminals in Mississippi from voting for the rest of their lives and "archaic" voter registration ordeals as illustrations of voter disenfranchisement. Warren responded by saying she "would go one bigger," citing the need for a constitutional amendment to "protect the right to vote for every American citizen and to make sure that vote gets counted." She went on to say that every vote needed to be counted, and that candidates didn't typically campaign in nonswing states like Mississippi during general elections. "My view is that every vote matters; and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting and that means get rid of the Electoral College and every vote counts."
Without The Electoral College, We’d Be More Likely To Have a Dictator
12-5-16, Federalist.com -- The founders of the USA constructed a representative republic—by those who owned land having a “stake in the country.” The Electoral College [EC] is designed as part of the federal republic; where all voters in ALL states are represented not just by voters in the most highly populated states who may have little or no education about the issues on which they are being asked to vote. People who generally vote their, race, their religion, their gender, their sexual orientation even illegally vote their immigration status. The modern liberal devalues individual liberty in favor of the imposition of a declared general good. To have conformity, you must have a central authority, wherein everybody across the full breadth of the land marches in lockstep to the dictates of a few states. Unfortunately, among the list of nations that imposed conformity was one where leaders wore jackboots [Nazis] marcing across Europe.
Pearl Harbor 78th Anniversary
National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day and the 78th anniversary of the December 7, 1941 attack on Japan's attack on American island of Oahu Hawaii
To be recognized as a world power, Japan opened itself up to the social, political, industrial and cultural influence of Western nations. In the middle of the Meiji period, Japan was victorious in two different wars, the first Sino-Japanese War (1894-1895) and the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). This established the country as a legitimate military power, and also made them an ideal member of the Allied forces in WWI. To cut America off at the knees, per se, and decimate their naval strength so they would be unable to defend the Pacific, Japan decided to execute a surprise attack on America’s largest base in the Pacific—Pearl Harbor.
On the morning of December 7, 1941, more than 350 Japanese aircraft attacked the battleships, cruisers, destroyers and infrastructure. More than 2,400 people were killed in the attack, and it initially looked like a complete success for Japan. Four of the battleships were sunk, and the other four were damaged. However, six of them were ultimately returned to service, and none of the American aircraft carriers were present at Pearl Harbor. Up to this point Americans were not interested in the world's wars; but thousands of Americans became soldiers after this event.
Democrat Party Integrity is being destroyed by Congressman Adam Schiff [D-CA] [and his cohorts]. He lied in his opening statement prior to the testimony of Acting Dir of Natl Intel Joseph Maguire. The nation has been subjected to partisan impeachment hearings orchestrated by Schiff. The process has been unfair to not only House Republicans, but also the target of their investigation, Pres Trump. Recently nine witnesses testified about the President’s involvement with the nation of Ukraine, his phone call with the Ukrainian President and his claimed demand for a “favor” in return for military aid and a White House visit. None of it fact as we have a treaty with Ukraine to investigate corruption. Most of the witnesses relied on hearsay and did not directly talk to the President. Others implicated the President’s attorney Rudy Giuliani. The result of the process has not been a “smoking gun” confirming any sort of crime committed by President Trump. Instead, the American people are being turned off by the entire stunt. More here
7-4-18, FederalistPapers -- To the FISA court Comey claimed the dossier was verified, but under oath to Congress he said it wasn't. Based on Comey’s finding, Mrs Clinton should have faced a multiple-count criminal indictment. The FBI discovered that she had stored 110 classified emails on her unauthorized, private home computer server. Yet, Comey saw to it that no charges were ever brought against her claiming 'no willful' violation. Under questioning, Comey admitted to the Inspector General [IG] Michael Horowitz that he authored the May 2, 2016 statement and penned every word of it himself. In 1948, Congress amended the original Espionage Act of 1917 to add a “gross negligence” provision that did not require intent or willfulness. If found guilty, he should be prosecuted and jailed as others have been for far less.
8-16-19, Muslim Ex-Palestinian Rashida Tlaib [D-MI] Hates Israel More Than She Loves Her Grandmother - Tlaib canceled her trip to visit her grandmother in the West Bank even after Israel approved it as long as she did no anti-Israel activities. She responded: "I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me & use my love for my [grandmother] to bow down to their oppressive & racist policies.” Israel is not oppressive nor racist; it's the ONLY democratic nation in the Middle East.
April 2019, GatewayPundit -- McCarthyism! In March 2017 a list of more than a dozen proven victims of Obama’s illegal wiretaps was reported. Now we can add to that list the many times when candidate and President Trump and his team were spied on. How is this not like or worse than Nixon's 1974 'Watergate' debacle?
The Real Ukraine Scandal Leads to the Clinton Foundation
Strange the Dems are digging dirt that will cover themselves!
In the end times God's word tells us He will send a strong delusion to the wicked who love their sin:
“The working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
12-5-19, Very interesting that the liberal leftist America hating Democrats are digging up this Ukraine saga when they are knee deep in the mire. Sure sounds like God's 'strong delusion' is in action. [2 Thessalonians 2:9-12]
Why are Dems continuing with their parade of false accusations against Donald Trump that began in January 2017? Why the hoopla over the insignificant nation of Ukraine?
Well, President Trump touched the third rail of Democrat/Deep State/DC Swamp politics when he asked Ukraine’s President Zelensky to investigate massive Democrat corruption and theft of taxpayer money. [Totally appropriate because President Bill Clinton's 1999 treaty for the two nations to cooperate to investigate corruption. Another fact pointing to God's strong delusion.]
Apparently the biggest scandal in US political history is about to be unearthed with powerful people of the Democrat party and the ‘Deep State' possibly ending up in prison. Therefore, the wicked and corrupt leaders of the opposition must frame and destroy President Trump. For this to happen ... first former Obama Vice President Joe Biden has to be sacrificed. Obama doesn’t want him as their candidate; but the real story is about the Clintons, the Clinton Foundation, Obama, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry and many other powerful Democrats. Their fingerprints are all over Ukraine. Forget about the high-paying jobs for family members [Hunter Biden Joe’s son] - this goes much deeper.
Clearly President Trump’s July 25, 2019 phone conversation with Ukraine’s president Zelensky set off alarm bells. Pres Trump is digging in places no one has ever dared before to dig. He could expose the extortion and bribery racket of leading Democrats. Donald Trump cannot be controlled by the "swamp" of Washington DC so they're working hard to eliminate his threat to their lifestyle.
No one is impeaching this president; we have your back President Trump and we are praying for you and your family’s safety.

A Century of Decline
Is America Headed to the Same Fate of Argentina?
God said: "You disobeyed all My counsel and would none of My reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear comes as desolation.. when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon Me, but I will not answer; they shall seek Me early, but they shall not find Me: For they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: Therefore, shall they eat of the fruit of their own way and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto Me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil."
Parallels of Sin, Disobedience to God
and Nation's Destruction
How the Church Lost Argentina
3-22-13, Foreign Policy -- According to the Pew Forum, 76.8 percent of Argentina’s population is at least nominally Catholic, but only 33 percent of Catholics interviewed in 2010 cited religion as very important in their lives, down from 40 percent in 2002 and only 19 percent in 2013.
Homosexual Marriage Rights in Argentina
In 2010, Argentina became the first country in Latin America to legalize homosexual marriage. Argentina’s laws ensuring lesbian, gay and transgender people’s right to marriage — which it extends to non-resident foreigners — and adoption are among the most liberal in the world.
Decline of Christianity in the USA
10-16-19, PewForum -- The USA shrinking white evangelical share of the population reflects both demographic changes and broader religious changes in American society where the share of all adults who identify with Christianity has declined.
Homosexual Marriage Rights in United States
In 2004 Massachusetts was the first state to allow same-sex marriage. Since then there's been a wave of legal rulings expanding the legalization of homosexual marriage in the US. In 2015 the Supreme Court legalized same sex marriage of all the nation's homosexuals.
12-31-18, DailyWire -- An estimated 60 million unborn babies have died since the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973. Thankfully President Trump has been making great strides to curtail the United States from the brutal killing of unborn human babies. The total number of abortions worldwide stands just 17 million people below the total number of general deaths worldwide (59 million), which does not factor abortion into its statistic. That means the correct total number of deaths worldwide in 2018 stands closer to 101 million. Those who would accuse pro-lifers of drastically over-inflating the numbers or wrongfully equating abortions with death fundamentally deny science.
How can we deny that there is a direct parallel between mankind's sin and the consequences of that sin?
Argentina homosexuality & God? USA abortion, homosexuality & God??
Argentina may have been rich 100 years ago. She was rich in 1914 because of commodities; its industrial base was only weakly developed. The landowners who made Argentina rich were not so bothered about educating it: cheap labor was what counted. That attitude prevailed into the 1940s, when Argentina had among the highest rates of primary-school enrolment in the world and among the lowest rates of secondary-school attendance. Primary school was important to create a sense of citizenship; but only the elite needed to be well educated. [..snip]
Now in the USA too many of our youth go all through 12 grades unable to read, write and add 2 + 2. The USA is on the same path as Argentina.
God said, "I, in turn, will do this to you: I will appoint over you a sudden terror, consumption and fever that will waste away the eyes and cause the soul to pine away; also, you will sow your seed uselessly, for your enemies will eat it up." [Leviticus 26:16; Proverbs 24:22]
In 1999 How the Senators Voted on Bill Clinton's Impeachment

Democrats have abandoned bipartisan format of Bill Clinton's perjury impeachment
10-10-19, WashExam -- The Clinton impeachment inquiry opened in December 1998 with a bi-partisan vote ...Today, the Democrats are employing a far different procedure than two decades ago when President Bill Clinton was impeached for perjury over Monica Lewinsky.
Nancy Pelosi: I “Guarantee” Trump Will Not Be President ...
5-23-16, Listen to Rep. Nancy Pelosi, saying: “Donald Trump is not going to be President of the United States. Take it to the bank, I guarantee it.” Many believe she's just a senile old bat who not too long ago was second in line to the Oval Office [and is again! 12-2-19]. That thought still haunts many people as she hold so much power in the USA. The left was very confident from the beginning that Donald Trump would have no chance at securing the Republican nomination, even outright laughing at people like Ann Coulter who suggested he would be victorious. [Trump won - so what do the despicable leftist America hating Dems do - first week in office they start an impeachment parade to extract Pres Trump. These people are diabolical.]
Nancy Pelosi Still Doesn't Know Where Natural Gas Comes From
9-17-08, The day before the Dem Natl Convention, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) went on Meet the Press and told Tom Brokaw: "I’m investing in something I believe in. I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels. … These investments in wind, in solar and biofuels and focus on natural gas, these are the real alternatives." Natural gas is not an alternative to fossil fuels … it is a fossil fuel. One would hope that Mrs Pelosi had studied up on the issue since then, but her comments after the House passed a bill codifying the ban on most of the Outer Continental Shelf shows she still does not. She told The Washington Post: “We’re not trying to give incentives to drill, we’re giving incentives to invest in renewables and natural gas that will take us where we need to go.”
11-29-19, There is increased support for President Donald Trump within the African-American community. Black Voters’ Support for Trump at Record Numbers.
New Poll Shows Black Voters Are Raising Their Voices in Support of Pres Trump
11-27-19, Two new polls show black support for U.S. Republican President Donald Trump at or slightly above 34 percent, and that means the president could get an unprescendented 20 percent of the black vote in 2020.
Black support for Trump goes up and one reaction is just rude
11-26-19, In response to the rude tweet from Ana Navarro-Cárdenas: "Zero chance this is accurate. Zero. The poll must have only been conducted in the homes of Ben Carson, Kanye, that sheriff guy with the hat and those two Cubic Zirconia & Polyester-Spandex ladies [Diamond & Silk]." Reuters poll found Black support for Trump doubled from 11% to 22%.
Prime Minister Netanyahu recently said: “It is important for me to emphasize that the only ones who determine who the prime minister will be are Israeli voters. That is the essence of democracy.”
Unelected officials have launched show trial coups in the USA & Israel. Public confidence in this political lefty mafia is at an incredible all-time low. The voters are responding by rejecting their credibility. [..snip]
The media claims that Netanyahu is “inciting” against the judiciary; but he’s just saying what everyone knows - the system is corrupt. And it abuses its powers to go after the targets of its corruption.
The Right began its dominance of Israeli politics because most of the country loathes the corrupt system that the old socialists put into place to maintain control of the people and the country. They just don’t believe that there’s an alternative to the system. That’s what the indictment is about. [Just like in America the lefties proclaim they must impeach Donald Trump or else he'll be re-elected!]
Caroline Glick recently said: “the opposition stands on two planks – destroying Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and eternalizing the regime of Israel’s unelected bureaucrats."
And Netanyahu is making clear that it’s either him or the bureaucrats. The actual case or cases against Prime Minister Netanyahu, as against President Trump, are a joke.
They depend on media leaks, intimidation by political operatives within law enforcement and the judiciary, and a lot of hand-wringing about the moral downfall of the nation with very little evidence.
The centerpieces of the coup against Netanyahu, Cases 2000 & 4000, both claim that the Israeli leader undertook to support certain policies in exchange for favorable media coverage. Glick said: “Nobody ever heard of the concept that positive media coverage could be considered a bribe because in no country on the face of the planet is positive coverage considered a bribe because if positive coverage is considered a bribe, then journalism as a point of fact is a criminal enterprise.”
If the media providing positive coverage of politicians who support their agenda is a crime, every single politician and media boss would be in jail. That’s the selective prosecution part. And, as with the US President Trump, not only is the prosecution selective, but it invents new crimes in the process of selecting them.
- elected and unelected officials
- open and closed systems
- freedom and tyranny
- media power and people power
A coup[s] either ends with the defeat of the people or the plotters. As PM Netanyahu said, this comes down to the question of who determines who will run the country; the voters or the lawyers?
11-25-19, Lucianne.com -- Anti-gun New York Democrat Michael Bloomberg officially joined the race for president spending $34 million on TV ads during the coming week. Recently Breitbart News reported the depth of Bloomberg’s gun control support; he backs criminalizing private gun sales via universal background checks, banning “assault weapons,” banning “high capacity” magazines, expanding the prohibited purchaser’s list, instituting more gun trafficking laws, instituting Red Flag Laws, and placing more regulations on gun shows.
11-25-19, Clarion -- The net worth of former NY mayor Democrat Mike Bloomberg will go a long way as he pays for his own presidential campaign; net worth $54 billion. He's spending $35 million for his splashy entrance into the 2020 presidential contest is costing him. He has purchased time in a whopping 98 television markets around the country with millions more being spent on national ads. The money, as expected, is largely flowing to the “Super Tuesday” states that will vote on March 3, 2019. Bloomberg is spending $1.9 million to advertise in Los Angeles, another $1.2 million in Houston, $1.17 million in Dallas even in GOP Utah.
11-25-19, Politico -- Michael Bloomberg doesn’t plan to collect donations for his presidential campaign. That means he won’t appear in the next Democratic debate — and risks missing the half-dozen debates planned for next year. The billionaire businessman’s long-standing policy of bankrolling his political ambitions puts him in conflict with the Democrat National Committee’s requirements for participating in presidential primary debates. The threshold for the upcoming debate — hosted by POLITICO and PBS NewsHour on Dec. 19, 2019 — is 200,000 donors, with 800 donors in 20 different states.
Voter ID laws are inherently reasonable, not racist
7-23-12, CSMonitor.com -- Analogies between voter ID laws and Jim Crow poll taxes are absurd. The overwhelming majority of potential voters have government-issued identification. And those states that have passed voter ID laws have created mechanisms for those who don’t have drivers’ licenses to obtain a free ID. This bears no resemblance to a poll tax or any other segregationist tactic. While any interaction with a state bureaucracy may well be unpleasant, it is not likely to be much more of a bother than registering to vote in the first place.
Unless the desired outcome here is that anyone ought to be able to show up at the polls without proof of identity, their place of residence, or even citizenship, at some point election officials have a right to ask who they are.Ensuring the integrity of our electoral process ought not to be a partisan issue. While states can do a better job promoting voter registration or the process by which non-drivers get IDs, the Jim Crow canard is a bogus argument that demeans the cause of civil rights. All citizens must be allowed to vote, but it is eminently reasonable as well as constitutional and feasible for all qualified voters to be able to prove their identity.

January 1, 2017, Impeaching Trump Begin Now!
1-1-17, Robert Kuttner, HuffPost / REUTERS -- "Donald Trump is wildly unfit to be president, and he will demonstrate that in ways that break the law and violate the Constitution." Since the election, there have been three wishful efforts by the leftist Democrats to keep businessman Donald John Trump from the US presidency:

- a futile campaign to flip Trump electors
- and an even more improbable drive to get the Supreme Court to annul the 2016 election.

10-2-18, More than anything else, the 2016 presidential election was a referendum against the media, big government, elitists, high taxes and status quo.

They four in one day killed as much fowl as, with a little help beside, served the company almost a week. At which time, amongst other recreations, we exercised our arms, many of the Indians coming amongst us, and among the rest their greatest king Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted, and they went out and killed five deer, which they brought to the plantation and bestowed on our governor, and upon the captain and others.” More here
