LIMBAUGH: WE ARE ON THE VERGE OF A GENUINE CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS

Limbaugh: ‘We Are on the Verge of a Genuine Constitutional Crisis’

March 17, 2017

Friday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh warned of a coming constitutional crisis should the certain federal judges continue to deny President Donald Trump the ability to institute his policies.

Limbaugh pointed to the precedent set by the federal judiciary’s effort to deny Trump’s travel ban and argued it could lead to other limits on the president’s powers down the road.

Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com):

We are on the verge of a genuine constitutional crisis because of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals opening the door for this Hawaii Obama-appointed judge to deny Trump’s travel ban the second time going, and I want to get into detail as to what this really means and what the left is really doing here.

TRUMP’S BIG BUDGET CUTS

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

 

These are the promises that Trump ran and won on.  Call or write to your representatives in congress if you agree that these cuts need to be made.  Without those of us at the grassroots letting our voices be heard,  congress won’t have the backbone to do this.  Nancy

Trump Budget Seeks Big Cuts to Environment, Arts, Foreign Aid

EPA, State Department are among those to see sharp spending reductions to offset military outlay in White House plan

March 16, 2017

President Donald Trump called for sharp cuts to spending on foreign aid, the arts, environmental protection and public broadcasting to pay for a bigger military and a more secure border in a fiscal 2018 budget blueprint released Thursday.

The budget proposal is certain to run into stiff opposition in Congress, where lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have already signaled they are unlikely to enact Mr. Trump’s deep cuts when they pass spending bills that actually fund the government.

The budget proposes hefty cuts for the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Institutes of Health and the State Department. It also seeks to eliminate funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts and other independent agencies long in the crosshairs of some conservative Republicans.

The cuts, if enacted, would mean some agencies would have to lay off federal workers, though the budget doesn’t always offer exact head counts. It does specify that cuts to the EPA “would result in approximately 3,200 fewer positions at the agency.”

“You can’t drain the swamp and leave all the people in it,” said Mick Mulvaney, the president’s budget director. “I would expect there would have to be reductions of forces at various agencies.”

Limbaugh: WikiLeaks Revelation That CIA Mimics Russian Hackers Changes Narrative

“Folks, we are in the midst of dangerous times…”

Packed away in the thousands of documents released by WikiLeaks Tuesday was one that fascinated talk show host Rush Limbaugh because it links to the narrative of alleged connections between Russia and President Donald Trump’s campaign.

“Folks, we are in the midst of dangerous times like you cannot believe, and Donald J. Trump is the target,” he said.

Limbaugh noted that in the documents showing how the CIA hacks a vast array of electronic devices was evidence that the CIA often mimics Russian hackers.

RESCIND THE EXECUTIVE ORDER – AND REPLACE IT WITH MANY TOUGHER ONES

Rescind the Executive Order — And Replace It With Many Tougher Ones

President Trump needs to deny the Left a victory over his immigration executive order. The court challenge now being heard by the infamously unconstitutional and extremist 9th Circuit threatens to set a precedent that will codify open borders and leave the president powerless to protect us. Trump can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and deny the Left their unconscionable and unconstitutional attempted power grab by rescinding this EO and issuing stronger multiple replacements as stand alone orders.

The president cannot lose here. We must protect our borders; keep out the terrorists and rein in out-of-control immigration. It is the signal issue that got him elected. It is also the signal action needed to save this country from the Left’s malevolent intentions. The Left is attempting to subvert our country by simply replacing its population with a more malleable, sympathetic one. Unlike the immigrants of yesteryear, today’s are largely illiterate, welfare-dependent, unwilling to learn our language and definitely hostile to American culture and traditions. And while they are in many cases fleeing conditions created by their countries’ socialist policies, they nonetheless bring socialist ideas with them. As our country has become more “multi-cultural”, it has drifted ever leftward.

This was no mistake.

President Trump can and must rescind this executive order. Despite it’s hesitation, the 9th Circuit is virtually guaranteed to agree with the ruling by District Judge Robert Chambers halting Trump’s immigration ban. As the initial complaint was not justified by immigration law, which provides the president clear authority to do what he did, it would set a horrible precedent in eroding the president’s ability to protect the nation. If it goes to the Supreme Court, it will likely lose. Justice Kennedy will side with the leftists. With an 8 person court, even a 4-4 decision would mean the 9th Circuit ruling holds. Even with Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, a likely Kennedy defection would mean 5-4 for the Left. And support for Trump’s position is not even certain with Gorsuch.

IRAN’S MODERATE VIOLENT EXTREMISTS ?

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

 

Exactly who are these “moderates” that the Obama Administration was reaching out to in order to negotiate the Iran Nuclear Deal?    Rafsanjani, who recently died, was supposedly one of these influential   Iranian moderates .  This article looks at the true nature of Rafsanjani and it isn’t pretty ! 
For those of you who live in the North Carolina Triangle, mark your calendars to hear Fred Fleitz,, Senior VP for the Center For Security Policy,  speak on  Iran and the nuclear deal at  ICON on October 17, 2017.

Defining violent extremism down

There are Iranian moderates, but Rafsanjai was not among them

 – – Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Death, where is thy sting? For Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, it certainly didn’t come from the mainstream media.

The 82-year-old former Iranian president died of a heart attack earlier this month. The New York Times called him an “influential voice against hard-liners” and “a main voice in Iran calling for outreach to the West.” The Los Angeles Times said he had been “one of the most powerful allies of moderates in Tehran.” National Public Radio praised him as “a leading voice for reform.” The news section of The Wall Street Journal agreed that he was a “leading voice among moderate politicians.”

On what basis? Ayatollah Rafsanjani was a revolutionary, one of the founders of a state in which all power is exercised by a religious elite whose reading of Shia Islam is unswervingly bellicose; a regime implacably hostile to America, Israel and the liberal world order; one that has murdered, tortured and persecuted thousands of political opponents as well as those deemed blasphemers, apostates and heretics.

There’s more. My colleague, Benham Ben Taleblu, a senior Iran analyst at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), writes that when Rafsanjani was president in the 1990s, “Iran’s foreign assassination teams ran rampant in Europe, eliminating anti-regime artists, human rights activists, and political dissidents. Under his watch, Iran established itself in Latin America, working with Hezbollah to bomb the Israeli embassy in Argentina in 1992 and a Jewish cultural center in that country’s capital in 1994, which together killed over 100 people.”

In other words, Rafsanjani was a funder and commander of terrorism — or what President Obama has preferred to call “violent extremism.” Are we now to believe there are moderate violent extremists?

NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF NAVY PLANES GROUNDED DUE TO YEARS OF BUDGET CUTS

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

 

Nearly two-thirds of Navy planes grounded due to years of budget cuts

Years of budget cuts have taken a toll on the Navy’s fleet of strike fighters.
Nearly two-thirds of the Navy’s strike fighters are sitting unused because there is not enough money to repair them, according to DefenseNews.com.
The Navy has had to deal with declining budgets in recent years even though the demand for military aircrafts carriers remains the same. Congress was unable to produce a budget before the October 1 start of the 2017 fiscal year. Political leaders say Congress’ inability to pass the military budget on time is hurting the fleet.
In addition to the grounded planes, there isn’t enough money to fix the Navy’s ships, either. Maintenance of ships have been canceled or deferred. When military vessels are finally brought in for repair, it often takes more time to complete the work. Some submarines in the fleet have been out of service for long periods of time — in some cases more than four years. One sub, the Boise, even lost its diving certification because it was out of commission for so long.
Officials claim that if more money doesn’t become available soon, another five submarines could lose certification, according to the military news agency.
The Navy has been unable to obtain the money needed to move around service members and their families to new assignments, and about $440 million is needed to pay sailors. It also claims 15 percent of its shore facilities are in dire shape and in need of repair, replacement or demolition.
The Navy is not the only military branch dealing with money woes. The Army, Marine Corps and Coast Guard have also complained they are underfunded and need a financial infusion to stay afloat.
The Trump administration is now making an effort to boost military spending. The Pentagon recently delivered a $30 billion spending bill to Congress to help rebuild the armed forces.
Also this week, vice chiefs from the Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps will testify before both the House and Senate’s Armed Services Committee.
“I think we have a great opportunity to do the right thing for the country,” said Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, according to the Associated Press. “I’m pretty optimistic that it will actually happen.”

IRAN TESTS TRUMP WITH A MISSILE TEST

Trump’s Policy Turn on Iran

Treasury imposes new sanctions against Tehran’s ballistic missile program.

The world has been wondering if the Trump Administration will withdraw from President Obama’s nuclear agreement with Iran, and the answer appears to be no. That makes sense given the break it would cause with U.S. allies and the opening for Iran to make more mischief. But it does look as if President Trump may be willing to do what Mr. Obama refused to do, which is to rigorously enforce the agreement and push back against Iran’s aggression in the Middle East.

That was the message Wednesday when national security adviser Michael Flynn responded to Tehran’s latest ballistic-missile test by saying the U.S. had put Iran “on notice.” Mr. Flynn cited the missile tests and Iranian arms to the Houthi militia in Yemen but he offered no details on how the U.S. might respond. Then on Friday the Treasury Department followed through with a new round of sanctions on Iran’s global procurement network.

The new sanctions, which target 25 individuals and businesses, offer a revealing glimpse at the scope of Iran’s efforts to develop its missile arsenal. Beyond key Iranian figures, the sanctions hit procurement networks in China, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates. Some provide Iran with ball bearings, composite fibers and other dual-use technologies; others funnel cash transfers and launder funds for terrorist groups such as Hezbollah. An array of front groups and shell companies cover the tracks.
