My Questions on Jesus and Charity

Rush Limbaugh

Jesus-question-charityRUSH:  Ladies and gentlemen, I have a question, maybe a couple of questions here, and I ask these questions simply because I would like the answers.  And these questions derive from what I have heard on television today during our obscene profit time-outs here. I very rarely do this, but I turned the audio up, I actually listened, and I’ve caught a couple of guests on Fox and they’ve been asked, “Are you aware that people like Rush Limbaugh are calling the pope Marxist?”

“Oh, yeah, yeah, we’re aware of that, and the pope is clearly aware of it, too, but like the pope said on the plane yesterday, he’s not a leftist.  It’s just a misinterpretation.”  And this one guest said, “There’s nothing liberal about the pope. He’s just a good Catholic.” He started rattling off charity and concern and all these other things that define Christianity and said that’s all the pope is.

Okay, so I have a question, because this seems to be a major point of contention.  I have long maintained that whenever it happened in our welfare state, and we could probably find this with enough deep research.  When welfare became or started to become categorized as charity is when liberalism began to be attractive to churches.  Churches quite naturally are big on charity both as recipients for distribution and donors.  They do both sides.

So along comes this pope now and his not apologists, but the people translating for him or explaining, interpreting, “Oh, no, no, no, this ideological, pope is not liberal, no, no, no, no, no.  Don’t be so silly.  Don’t be so foolish.  Don’t be so small-minded.  He’s simply a Catholic, simply Christian, this is what Christians and Catholics do.”  And then, “It’s what Jesus did, simply what Jesus did.”  So my question is this.  I need some legitimate help on this.  I know that Jesus preached charity.  Did Jesus tell people to give their money to the Romans so that the Romans could then distribute it?

In other words, did Jesus tell people to give their money to whatever governing entity there was, or entities there were at the time, or did he preach charity as an individual thing?  In other words, was Jesus a big-government charitable advocate?  It seems to me that it might have been the opposite, that Jesus had some problems with governments.

These are just open-ended questions to which I’m asking if people have the answer.

These are not rhetorical questions.

welfare-government-charity-madisonWell, I don’t think there’s anything offensive about these questions.  One, I’m trying to understand, because it’s come up today.  One of the undeniable truths in our culture is that the modern day Democrat Party does not like religion.  They don’t like Christianity.  That’s not even arguable.  (interruption)  Well, certain big government didn’t like Jesus, but my point is when it comes to chair, the pope seems to be advocating that governments need to do all of these big things, and our interpreters on TV are saying, “Yep, that’s what Jesus did.”

Is that right?  I am not a theologian.  I have never used this program to preach or proselytize.  As you well know, I don’t go into any of these arguments. Faith is a deeply personal, private thing. That’s why I don’t even condone arguments about it on this program, so I’m just asking here.  (interruption)  No, I’m not asking if… (interruption)  When Jesus told people to be charitable, was he telling them to pay higher taxes and let the Romans take care of it?  (interruption)  He wasn’t, right?  The Romans ran the show. 

I mean, the Romans were the government then.  They were the federal government.  There might have been some local pretenders and so forth, but that’s all I’m asking.  He said render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s, but he also then had a qualifier after that which made it clear that Caesar was not entitled to everything.  I mean, you can interpret it, “Yeah, pay your fair tax and get the hell out of Dodge.”  But this is why I’m asking the question, because it’s being interpreted today.  The left — I find this fascinating.  The left, which does not hold any really great love for the Catholic Church or organized religion at all is now all of a sudden trying to portray themselves as Christ-like. 

And it’s all in the name of big government, all in the name of trying to portray now what the Democrat Party’s doing, the American left is doing as Christ-like, taking advantage of the visit of the pope in order to create that impression with people.

Health Hazard: Teen Vaping Health Risks

Health Hazard:

Teen Vaping Health Risks

Teen Vaping Is Risky Business

By Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Mike Roizen, MDs

So, while you’re teaching your kids about the dangers of smoking cigarettes (it’s working; smoking rates are dropping), make sure they understand that vaping is no better.

Many celebrities have credited e-cigarettes for helping them quit smoking. But actress Katherine Heigl might have brought the most attention to vaping with her appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman” in 2010.

She and Letterman smoked from her e-cig.

“This oughta get it done,” said Letterman. “I know,” agreed Heigl. “You have no excuse now to smoke a real cigarette.”

It turns out that’s not the positive public health message it seemed to be — especially when it comes to teens and vaping.

The exotic-seeming, sweet-flavored e-cigs have become a high school craze. A 2016 report from the U.S. surgeon general found a 900 percent increase in e-cigarette use by high school students from 2011 to 2015. And the 2016 National Youth Tobacco Survey reported that 1.7 million high school students had used e-cigarettes in the previous 30 days.

Those kids are getting bombarded by many harmful chemicals that are produced during vaping.

A new study published in Pediatrics analyzed urine samples from 103 teens, 67 of whom used only e-cigarettes, 16 of whom smoked regular and e-cigarettes, and 20 of whom smoked neither.

They found that teens who vaped had three times the levels of metabolites of chemicals such as acrylonitrile, acrolein, propylene oxide, acrylamide, and crotonaldehyde in their urine than those who didn’t. Several of those are known carcinogens.

So, while you’re teaching your kids about the dangers of smoking cigarettes (it’s working; smoking rates are dropping), make sure they understand that vaping is no better.

13 Facts the Media ‘Pros’ Don’t Want You to Know About ‘Family Border Separation’

John Nolte

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Legal Insurrection.com for his great cartoons

The fire hose of fake news from the establishment media this week on the issue of illegal immigrant families separated at the border is designed to mislead the American people — and to distract from Trump’s recent successes.

Here are the facts — 13 truths the media do not want you to know about President Trump’s legal, humane, and moral handling of adults and children who enter our country illegally.

  1. Trump Is Only Enforcing the Law

Trump’s “zero tolerance policy” is merely his administration treating all lawbreakers as lawbreakers, because the only other option is to let them loose into America with nothing but a court summons.

  1. Trump’s Only Choice Is to Separate Illegal Alien Families

When an illegal alien crosses the border into the U.S., he is a lawbreaker, and, like any lawbreaker (including American citizens), he is put into the criminal justice system.

This is the law.

3The Left Wants Illegal Aliens to Enjoy Privileges Denied to American Citizens

If an American citizen breaks the law and is funneled into the justice system, he is separated from his family and children. This American citizen is not allowed to keep his family with him in a detention center.

Once again, our media want illegal aliens to enjoy special rights and privileges American citizens do not enjoy.

One more point…

Left-wing politics  promote  Child Abuse!

These migrants are guilty of walking minor children through miles and miles of desert with the intent of committing a crime (crossing a border illegally).

If you or I walked a child through miles and miles of desert with the intent of committing a crime, child protective services would take our children away (and should).

4Asylum Seekers Not Breaking the Law are Not Being Separated9

If you cross the border illegally and claim asylum, you are still a lawbreaker. Regardless of your intent, crossing the border illegally automatically puts you in the criminal justice system, where you will obviously be separated from family.

These asylum seekers are choosing to break the law, are choosing to be separated from family.

5Trump Is Correct About the Loophole

In 1997, a consent decree called the Flores Settlement made it illegal for America to hold migrant children for longer than 20 days. Meaning, in order to keep the family together after 20 days of detention, we can either reunite the family by letting them loose to live illegally in America, or we can keep the parent in detention and place the child in a foster home or with a relative who lives in America.

6“Reuniting” Families Would Be a Disaster for Countless Children

Again, the only way to “keep a family together” is to allow illegals to pour into our country.

This policy would be a total disaster, especially for the children.

If word gets out that America automatically allows illegal border crossers with small children loose into America just because they have minor children, this would only further incentivize those who engage in the child abuse of dragging children along on the unbelievably dangerous trek across the border — or, even worse, both exploiting them for catch-and-release and then trafficking them after making it into the country.

No one who truly cares about these children wants to further incentivize that kind of abuse.

7 Obama and Democrats Incentivized This ‘Family Separation’

Until Obama came along, illegal border crossings primarily involved young, single men. Obama incentivized the idea of dragging minor children along on this dangerous journey (where many children are sexually assaulted) through his policy of  “catch and release.”

Once word got out that illegals with small children would be let loose into America, the number of children crossing the border exploded.

8Barack Obama Separated Illegal Alien Families, Media Said Nothing

Under Obama, when illegal border crossers were put into the criminal justice system, families were indeed separated. Obama, of course, rarely prosecuted, even though the law calls for it.

9. IMPORTANT: The ONLY Way to Unite Families Is to Release Them into America

Obviously, we cannot have children living in adult detention centers. Obviously, we cannot have adults living in child detention centers. Therefore, the only way to “reunite” these families is to release these illegals into our country.

The media will not tell you this because the media do not want you to know that flooding America with non-citizens is their true agenda.

10Incentivizing the Act of Bringing Minor Children Across the Border Is Evil

The media do not want to inform Americans of one crucial fact: the dangers inherent in crossing the border from Mexico into America, most especially the dangers faced by minor children.  Sadly, these dangers too often involve sexual abuse.

11Those Who Come to America Legally Face ‘Family Separation’

Many people who come to America legally from other countries are separated from family. A big part of America’s LEGAL immigration policy involves family separation when one or two family members come over before the rest are legally or financially able.

12“Family Reunification” Is an Invitation to Human Traffickers

Because of “catch and release,” because of this dumb and destructive loophole carved out for families, the number of illegal aliens using children to enter the U.S. increased by 315 percent between October 2017 and February 2018.

13. Media Do Not Give a **** About American Families Separated by Criminal Illegal Aliens

Illegal alien families are choosing to be separated by voluntarily engaging in lawbreaking. These illegal alien families, if they so choose, can stay together, simply by obeying the law.

Sarah Sanders Torches Media over Family Separation Immigration Photo Hoax

“It’s shameful that dems and the media exploited this photo of a little girl to push their agenda,” Sanders tweeted. “She was not separated from her mom. The separation here is from the facts.~Sarah Sanders

John Nolte

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders blasted the establishment media Friday for spreading a now-debunked hoax-photograph featuring a little girl crying at the border.

“It’s shameful that dems and the media exploited this photo of a little girl to push their agenda,” Sanders tweeted. “She was not separated from her mom. The separation here is from the facts. Dems should join POTUS and fix our broken immigration system.

For days, and without bothering to vet the photograph, the anti-Trump corporate media have deliberately tried to mislead the American people into believing President Trump’s separation policies were new (they are not), and that this crying child was separated from her family due to Trump’s refusal to release illegal immigrants into America (which is the ONLY way to “keep families together”).

This week, the hoax-photo was even used on the cover of Time magazine, a far-left outlet that has spread fake news in the past.

The truth is that this child was never separated from her mother, and that Trump is merely continuing a policy of separating children and adults in detention centers, a smart and humane policy that Barack Obama practiced, as did his predecessors.

As if it is not bad enough that the media fabricated a non-controversy out of thin air (no one cared when Obama practiced this perfectly reasonable policy), the media are also using hoax photographs, utterly false propaganda, as a means to do it with.

 History Timeline on Bill Clinton and  Family Separation

Bill Clinton and Janet Reno Separated Families

RUSH: Hey, folks, you want to talk about separating children from their parents? Does anybody remember the Waco invasion led by Attorney General Janet El Reno? That was her first massive attempt at separating children from their parents by killing them. David Koresh and his what they thought was an oddball religion housed in Waco, Texas. They literally had a military assault on the compound, and we watched it burn to the ground with women and children and men inside.

And then does anybody remember the name and saga of young Elian Gonzalez? Elian Gonzalez survived a rickety raft trip from Cuba to Florida. His mother did not. His mother drowned trying to save him. Elian was five or six.

They had relatives living in the Miami area, and they took the young boy in. After many months of the Clinton administration thinking that America was no place in this kid. His mother had left Cuba, risking her life and her son’s to get away from Castro and that nightmare of a country. She died. But Clinton and El Reno thought that the real home for that kid was back in “Cuber” with the child’s father, Juan Gonzales. So arguments ensued; the Clinton administration actually flew Juan Gonzales to Washington and to Florida.

Fidel Castro stumbled into one of the greatest propaganda opportunities of his dictatorship because here you had Bill Clinton and Janet El Reno parading Juan Gonzales all over American TV as a loving, doting father desperate to get his young son Elian Gonzalez back. Of course, the Clinton administration said, “A young man belongs with his father in a communist country,” and sent an armed federal agent into a rickety little house in Florida where the aunt and uncle… Her name was Marisleysis, if I recall. It could be the Gonzalezes. She was a relative of the mother.

And they were taking care of young Elian. Young Elian was happy. He was going to parks. He was having snow cones and running in the parks on swing sets and merry-go-rounds and stuff, and Janet El Reno grew tired of the fact that the family in Miami would not surrender young Elian to his father, Juan Gonzales. So they sent an armed federal agent! I mean, this guy was decked out with body armor, a helmet. He had leather gloves on his hands, a gigantic submachine gun-type looking weapon.

They stormed into that house and grabbed young Elian, grabbed him, took him out, put him on a little Learjet with Janet El Reno. They spirited him off, and eventually he ended up back in Cuba, where now he was described by Fidel Castro before he passed away as “a good worker,” and young Elian Gonzalez is now in his twenties and is a thoroughbred communist. But his mother took him away from Cuba and from his father — a separation, if you will — that was motivated by coming to America. The point is these things happen all the time, and yet the media is trying to make people believe that families being separated never happens.

Abuse of Power Update: Trey Gowdy Horowitz hearing Reveals Swamp Cover Up of Political Bias in FBI Investigation

Abuse of Power Update:

Trey Gowdy-Horowitz hearing Reveals Swamp Cover Up of Political Bias in FBI Investigation

And that great pit which hath been digged for the destruction of men shall be filled by them that digged it. ~1Nephi 14:3

Undeniable Political Bias in FBI Investigation

GOWDY: All right. So we’re three for three on her working on the two most important bureau investigations in 2016 and beyond. Now, is this the same Lisa Page that Andy McCabe used to leak information to a news outlet?

HOROWITZ: She was a special counsel, and as we indicated in our earlier report, she was the individual through whom he provided that information.

GOWDY: The same Lisa Page who admonished the agent interviewing Hillary Clinton not to go into that interview “loaded for bear” because Clinton might be the next president, and it’s the same Lisa Page who said Trump was “loathsome,” “awful,” “the man cannot become president; Clinton just has to win,” and that Trump “should go F— himself.” And we are somehow supposed to believe that she did not prejudge the outcome of that investigation before it was over? She already had Hillary Clinton winning. I don’t know how you can win if you’re gonna wind up getting indicted and/or plead guilty or be convicted of a felony.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: It’s impossible for us to replay the whole thing. We’d have had to go gavel to gavel on it. Gowdy was at this for about 20, 25 minutes. Just hammered Horowitz. But he wasn’t hammering Horowitz. He was just getting Horowitz to admit what was in the report but in an entirely different context. (snort) Gowdy made it plain that it was nothing but political bias guiding all these people, and he was stunned that nobody could see it in terms of the final report. Here’s the next example.

GOWDY: Senior FBI agent Peter Strzok wrote, “No. No, he’s not. We’ll stop it.” I think this is the same Peter Strzok who worked on the Clinton email investigation? Do I have that right?

HOROWITZ: That’s correct.

GOWDY: Same Peter Strzok who not only worked the Russia investigation when it began, was one of the lead investigators at the inception of the Russia probe. Do I have the right Peter Strzok?

HOROWITZ: That’s my understanding.

GOWDY: Now, is it the same Peter Strzok who was put on the Mueller special counsel team?

HOROWITZ: Yes.

GOWDY: Same Peter Strzok. And this is not the only time he managed to find the text feature on his phone, either. This is the same Peter Strzok who said, “Trump is an idiot. Hillary should win 100 million to zero.” Now, Mr. Inspector General, that one is interesting to me, because he’s supposed to be investigating her for violations of the Espionage Act, and he can’t think of a single, solitary American that wouldn’t vote for her for president. Can you see our skepticism?

GOWDY: What do you think the “it” is in that phrase “we’ll stop it”?

HOROWITZ: Oh, I think it’s clear in the context it’s we’re gonna stop him from becoming president.

GOWDY: That’s what I thought too. Now, I wonder who the “we” is in the “we’ll stop it.” Who do you think the “we” is?

HOROWITZ: Well, I think that’s probably subject to multiple interpretations — them or a broader group beyond that.

GOWDY: How about “finish it”? When he said, “I unleashed it. Now I need to fix it and finish it,” what do you think he meant by “finish it”?

HOROWITZ: I think in the context of the emails that occurred in August, the prior August that you outlined, I think a reasonable explanation that or a reasonable inference of that is that he believed he would use or potentially use his official authority to take action.

GOWDY: Did you ever have an agent when you were a prosecutor with this level of bias?

HOROWITZ: My view of this was that this was extremely serious, completely antithetical to the core values. In my personal view having been a prosecutor and worked with FBI agents, I can’t imagine FBI agents suggesting, even, that they might use their powers to investigate, frankly, any candidate for any office.

Swamp Cover Up

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Comically Incorrect  for his great cartoon

RUSH: Let me tell you what would happen if you watched this whole thing, as I did. If you watch Gowdy from beginning to end, with even more of what we haven’t had time to air here, you cannot conclude anything other that this is one of the sleaziest, dirtiest, most corrupt, politicized and biased attempts to destroy a particular presidential candidate while protecting another one. It is paramountly obvious.

The way Gowdy unpacked this and presented it versus the way the inspector general presents it? The two techniques, Gowdy and Horowitz, are so disparate that the conclusion has to be that the inspector general report — as filed, as reported, and as written — is actually part of the cover-up and the fix being in for all of this from the get-go. Because, folks, if this thing were interpreted as Gowdy did and written by the IG as Gowdy has interpreted it and any common sense person with the information would, these people would be in handcuffs already.

They would have been charged. The things they have done are worthy of serious criminal charges. And yet they’re still employed, many of them and still receiving paychecks. And specially they have been exonerated under the theory that there wasn’t any operational bias here that determined the outcome of any of these various operations. So I think — especially after listening to Gowdy the way he presented this today — it is clear that the ongoing effort to cover up and to water down what actually happened is still widely in practice.

“Sickened” FBI Agents Ready To “Come Forward And Testify” Against Comey & McCabe

FBI Agents Beg To Expose FBI Corruption?

  • · Source: TTN
  • by: TTN Staff

It is being reported that a group of FBI agents want to be subpoenaed by Congress in order to expose the problems with the once revered agency.

According to The Daily Caller:

Many agents in the FBI want Congress to subpoena them so they can reveal problems caused by former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, three people in direct contact with active field agents tell TheDC.

“There are agents all over this country who love the bureau and are sickened by [James] Comey’s behavior and [Andrew] McCabe and [Eric] Holder and [Loretta] Lynch and the thugs like [John] Brennan–who despise the fact that the bureau was used as a tool of political intelligence by the Obama administration thugs,” former federal prosecutor Joe DiGenova told The Daily Caller Tuesday. “They are just waiting for a chance to come forward and testify.”

Ahead of the release of the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general report on how the FBI handled the Clinton email investigation, TheDC spoke with DiGenova, a former Trump official who maintained contact with rank and file FBI agents and a counter-intelligence consultant who conducted an interview with an active special agent of the FBI’s Washington Field Office (WFO).

TheDC independently confirmed the veracity of the consultant’s position and access, and reviewed detailed transcripts of his Q&A with the special agent, who requested the arrangement due to internal dragnets and fear of vicious retribution.

This is just another black eye for the FBI. But it looks like there are agents that care about the integrity of the agency and want to fix it.

Mueller Victim Exposes Massive FRAUD

Michael Caputo, Mueller Victim

“Today, I can’t possibly pay the attendant legal costs and live near my aging father, raising my kids where I grew up. Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia are costing my family a great deal of money – more than $125,000 – and making a visceral impact on my children. Now I must to move back to Washington, New York City, Miami or elsewhere, just so I can make enough money to pay off these legal bills. And I know I have you to thank for that.”
‘Forget about all the death threats against my family. I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election. I want to know because God Damn you to Hell.”

It’s plain to see that the Mueller farce, meant to undermine the Trump agenda and boost Democrats, is ruining lives. The anti-Trump swamp doesn’t care how many innocent lives they destroy, so long as they can get famous, make money, and hurt Trump.

Unredacted House Intel Report Reveals the Railroading of Michael Flynn

 

Michael Caputo Attests to What I’ve Told You the Establishment Is Doing

 

Deep State Swamp exposed: Robert Mueller Praise is False Information

Rush Limbaugh

The never-ending praise and accolades for the fairness, the open-mindedness, the nonjudgmentalism, the integrity and the honor of Robert Mueller has been his hallmark that has been his reputation for as long as he’s been in Washington. As either the FBI director, assistant attorney general — he’s served a number of presidents in a number of positions — his reputation is impeccable. And if you ask me, none of it’s true, and none of it is warranted.

To me, this guy, Robert Mueller, personifies actually what is wrong with the Washington establishment, not what is right about it. No more integrity than this guy has. More honor than anybody else. I mean, he’s the personification of Dudley Do-Right. If Robert Mueller were this honorable person — the right choice to get to the bottom of this for the sake of the nation, for the sake of our culture, for the sake of doing the right thing — then he would have shut down this investigation long ago and lectured everybody about the improprieties and dangers involved in all of this.

He would have exposed the conspiracy and the corruption in the FBI that prolonged this, and he would have named names. He would have properly looked into real collusion between Fusion GPS, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the Democrat National Committee and the Russians and Christopher Steele. He would have exposed it! He would have been the one to tell us that the Steele dossier was fake, phony, and fraudulent. He would have been the one to tell us that the Steele dossier had been illegally used to get a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page and whoever else that the Obama team wanted to spy on.

He would have been the one to expose all of this, if he were the guy we’ve been told that he is. But he’s obviously not. He’s right in there with the rest of these partisan buffoons helping to perpetuate this crock, helping to perpetuate this injustice. And if this is the guy… If this is the guy we’re all told, “Trust it, Rush! Trust Mueller. He’s the guy to get to the bottom of this. He’ll find out what’s been going on. He’s got no partisan chip in his bones. Yeah, he’s a registered Republican, but that doesn’t matter.”

And then of course we find out that in the Whitey Bulger case, four people — innocent people — spent 30 years in jail when he knew they didn’t do it. Two of them died in jail! And one of the reasons was so he could protect the identity of a confidential informant. There isn’t any integrity here, and there isn’t any honor, and it doesn’t appear there’s any justice going on. So now we see that Rudy says that Mueller’s team shouts down the idea of written interviews with Trump.

And what we learned, after studying it over the weekend, was that the stuff that had been redacted was simply to protect the incompetent and perhaps biased procedures that they had engaged in at the FBI and the DOJ throughout this entire investigation. There was nothing national security related. It had all been redacted simply to cover up what Strzok and Page had been doing. It had been redacted to cover-up that Comey had been lying to people.

Comey did tell people that Flynn did not lie. Comey did tell people that he had talked to interviewees, people who talked to Flynn and nobody that interviewed Flynn thought that he had lied and yet here he’s pled guilty to lying? Now, the point that I made is Trump enjoys, I think, the political position of victim. He likes being able to tweet out all these things that Rosenstein and Mueller and the rest of these people are doing. Trump has the constitutional authority to unredact anything.

This stuff could have been ordered unredacted months ago. All Trump has to do is pick up the phone and call Rosenstein and order it done. The president can declassify anything. But he hasn’t. He has instead enjoyed tweeting about how unfair it is and about how ridiculous it is and how somebody needs to do something. Because I think Trump’s lawyers have got him convinced that if he did that, that he would be guilty of obstructing justice — and he’s dead wrong, and they’re dead wrong.

Constitution Facts

If the Congress — the elected representatives of the people who created the DOJ! The DOJ’s not in the Constitution. Congress creates the DOJ. They have oversight. If they command to see something, Trump can make them reveal it, and that’s not obstructing justice. But Trump’s lawyers are scared to death that any move — firing Mueller, unredacting this stuff, declassifying — would be seen as obstructing justice, obstructing the investigation and that Trump would be hurt politically.

I think it’s the exact opposite.

I think people would dance in the streets if Trump ordered these people to come clean with what they don’t have and end this.

Rush Limbaugh

It’s Time to Reassert the Power of the Presidency Over Bob Mueller

No special counsel has anywhere near the power of the president of the United States, in terms of the Constitution or any other structure. And neither does the deputy attorney general or the attorney general. The president is the executive branch, and everybody there serves at his pleasure.

But these people are setting it up that if they succeed in getting rid of Trump, then every president thereafter is going to be seen in terms of legal precedent subordinate to, in this case the intelligence community and the DOJ because they’re the ones running this show and acting like the president is beneath them, underneath them, however in the power structure of things.

The Constitution is being reconfigured here, and depending on how this ends, it is going to have precedent setting aspects for the office of the presidency as well.

Why Hasn’t John Kerry Been Arrested? He Has Leftist Privilege

Like Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State John Kerry apparently enjoys the immunity from prosecution that being a powerful Leftist brings you today.

The Boston Globe revealed Friday that Kerry is working hard to sabotage President Trump’s foreign policy regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran. Kerry reportedly “sat down at the United Nations with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to discuss ways of preserving the pact limiting Iran’s nuclear weapons program.”

This was not, apparently, a one-off meeting between Kerry and the foreign minister of the regime that orders its citizens to chant “Death to America” in mosques every Friday: “It was the second time in about two months that the two had met to strategize over salvaging a deal they spent years negotiating during the Obama administration, according to a person briefed on the meetings.”

And if you’re John Kerry, you can traverse the globe doing everything you can to undermine the foreign policy of the United States government, secure in the confidence that you will not face any consequences at all. You’re John Kerry. You’re a made man in the Leftist political elite. You could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue, and awaken the next morning to adoring headlines in the New York Times and the Washington Post.

A Review of Obama’s Disastrous Iran Deal That Trump Just Saved Us From

Rush Limbaugh

When it comes to the Iran deal, I’m gonna go back and review a whole bunch of things from the past that we touched on when they came out that everybody has forgotten, that detail just how rotten this deal was to begin with. They also detail how the Obama administration virtually lied to the American people about it, and did so with the assistance of the media and the new alliance between the media and the Obama intelligence apparatus.

Sen. Ben Sasse: Two-and-a-half years ago, President Obama made a bad deal with Iran without support from Congress, and today President Trump is pulling out of President Obama’s personal commitment, and he doesn’t need Congress’s support to do” it because Congress had nothing to do with authorizing this.

Obama did this personally. Obama never had the votes in the U.S. Congress to get this ratified as a treaty. So Obama did it by virtue, by way of executive action. And that’s the only reason Trump is able to rip it up the way he has. If this had been sanctioned and authorized as a treaty by the United States Senate, Trump could not have done what he did yesterday. The key to remember is that Obama never had the support even of prominent people in his own party.

Collusion with Foreign Government Russia

Thanks to A.F. Branco at Legal Insurrection.com for his great cartoons

This was a disastrous deal. One of the… The $150 billion that Obama pledged to Iran upon signing of the deal? Trump has made a big deal out of that $150 billion, and of course there was another amount of money — in cash — that was delivered (chuckles) on an unmarked airplane to the Tehran airport, pallets of cash that were from Obama to the government of Iran, ostensibly for the release of American hostages. But one of the things that’s not being commented on in all of this — and it’s understandable when you hear it.

You know who one of Iran’s most important allies is? Take a guess. (singing Jeopardy! theme) Beep! Right. Russia. Russia is one of Iran’s biggest allies.

An outpost in the Middle East. Guess what? They had it with Iran. Who has been supplying Iran, largely…? They’re not the only ones, but who has been one of the majority players in supplying Iran with nuclear technology for weaponized nukes and nuclear power?

Support Terrorism, Defend Iran against Israel

Netanyahu proved Iran lied

John Kerry, secretary of state, admitted that some of the money we gave Iran would be used to fund terrorism. And they’re trying to tell us that this was a great deal and that pulling out of this deal is gonna put the United States at great risk. We were at great risk in this deal! Do you know, do you remember, this Iran deal that Obama made had a clause requiring us to defend Iran if Iran were attacked — including if they were attacked by Israel?

Trump has been talking about that since 2015 and this been one of the primary reasons Trump has wanted to pull out of this. Iran took that $150 billion and repaid the Russians for some of the nuclear infrastructure they had been building. Now with the deal over, Iran has no more source of money. And with sanctions being reenacted, reemployed on Iran, it’s gonna be even tougher for the Iranians to continue to do business with the Russians.

American Treasury Money for Terrorism

RUSH: By the way, folks, that $150 billion from Obama to Iran, it just didn’t go to Russia. John Kerry admitted that some of it would be diverted to jihad. You know what that means. Terrorism. So some of that Obama $150 billion — well, American $150 billion — went to Syria, went to the Taliban. It flowed to Hamas and Hezbollah for the war on Israel. It went to Yemen, where there’s a proxy war going on against Saudi Arabia — which, by the way, is now part of the new Trump alliance with Israel.

And then a lot of that money went to Russia to repay Russia — or to pay Russia, period — for some of the nuclear infrastructure building that the Russians had done for the Iranians. So it’s just an absolute outrage what the whole deal was in the first place.It’s nothing more than what Obama wanted to do with American foreign policy in Iran for which he never had the votes; the Iranians never signed it. It has never been binding, except to the extent that nobody would oppose it! But it’s never had the force of constitutional law behind it! It’s no different than how Obama got away with so much during his presidency. Nobody had the guts to stop him.

 

Scam? More Accurately— Treason

And they got $150 billion in cash from Obama and the State Department — well, the Treasury — and this whole thing was presented to the American people as a serious, constitutional treaty that represented an official United States agreement with the government of Iran with several allied nations as signatories (i.e., our European allies). This was nothing but another scam, folks!

And the scam was pulled off by way of an alliance between the Obama intelligence people — that would be the CIA, the DIA, the NSA, all the people that ran these agencies that were Obama acolytes — and the media as willing accomplices in furthering the misconception about this.

Stymied Investigation into Hezbollah, Drug-Trafficking

“The Obama administration stymied a sprawling investigation into the terror group Hezbollah — and its highly lucrative drug-trafficking networks — to protect the Iran nuclear deal, according to a bombshell report. A team…” Remember, this is last December.

 “A team at the Drug Enforcement Administration had been working for almost a decade to bring down [Hezbollah]’s sophisticated $1 billion-a-year drug ring, which laundered money and smuggled cocaine into the United States, Politico reported.

“But the departments of Justice and Treasury,” that would be the Obama Justice Department and Treasury, “repeatedly undermined agents’ efforts to arrest and prosecute key members of the criminal network — because the Obama White House feared upsetting Tehran ahead of the nuclear agreement, according to Politico.”

All of this is in Politico, and it’s repeated and reported in the New York Post. So everywhere you look at this deal, it was a gigantic deception and a scam — and all it is, is Barack Obama’s personal policy preferences regarding America’s relationship with Iran.

Now we need to find out what made Iran so important to Barack Obama that all of this deceit would be entered into in order to construct a, quote-unquote, “deal” the American people were told would prevent the Iranians from getting a nuclear weapon? Who was really the purpose of this? Why was this so important to Obama? We know now why he didn’t submit this for ratification. We know why this was not treated as a treaty.

 

Why? Because Obama is a friend of Iran, and an enemy of United States and Israel. (C.D.)

Earth Day Facts: Earth Day Founder Murdered Girlfriend

Earth Day Facts:

Earth Day Founder Murdered Girlfriend

Earth Day: Left Celebrates Murderer’s Idea

keyoldSatan goes about deceiving the nations. ~D&C 52:14

 

Rush Limbaugh

Another Great Hero of the Left

EarthDayCriminalPIXRUSH: This is Earth Day today, too, by the way, folks.  Earth Day is April 22nd.  Does the name Ira Einhorn mean anything to you?  Ira Einhorn is the founder of Earth Day.    Ira Einhorn actually murdered his girlfriend, I believe, and sliced her up.  An American convicted murderer and former environmentalist wacko, Ira Einhorn, “beat his ex-girlfriend, Holly Maddux, to death and then stored her body in a locked trunk in his apartment for more than a year — about 18 months — before she was discovered by the police. He fled to Europe and was convicted 25 years later for her murder in 2002 and is serving a life sentence.”  He is the co-founder of Earth Day and he supports a carbon tax, just as does Thomas L. Friedman.

So another great hero of the left.  Ira Einhorn is being celebrated today by environmentalist wackos because this is Earth Day.  Bill Ayers, former domestic terrorist, homemade bombs, his weapon of choice.  Ira Einhorn, co-founder, Earth Day, convicted murderer.  Another highly respected, honored leftist icon.  By the way, again, Ira Einhorn supports a carbon tax.

Earth Day Update

Rush Limbaugh

RUSH:  What’s going on here is that they can’t get anybody’s attention.  In every public opinion poll, global warming is down at the bottom.  So they’re trying to scare people out of their pants, because that’s all they’ve got.  The lone tactic that socialists have is to scare you, and that is what they’re trying to do ’cause you’re not buying what they’re saying.  And as they get more radical and lunatic like this, I don’t know what they expect. When you tell people that we have to get rid of cow farts to save the planet, nobody is gonna go for that.  Well, not nobody.  But that’s how just out of control that they have gotten.  

So Absurd you Have to Laugh

cowsThe UN says the only way to save the planet now is by eliminating cattle.  I mean, how do you stop cow farts?  Frankly the only way to get rid of cow farts is to get rid of cows.  It’s them or us, is the way this is put in the National Journal.  This is not some kook, fringe publication.  (interruption)  No.  No.  (interruption)  No.  No, no other animal farts matter.  That’s the point.  Cow farts.

Now, the problem is cows are cattle.  You know, we get milk from cows, too, not just… (interruption)  Yeah.  I guess.  We’re supposed to go to goat milk or chicken milk.  No cheese.  Anything that you get from a cow’s gotta go.  (interruption)  To save the planet.  (interruption) Well, if we’re gonna be able to implement what the UN says we have to do to save the planet.  Let’s go to the audio sound bites.

I mean, this is also being ginned up today, folks, in addition to this propaganda with Obamacare.  This is last night, actually.  This is Brian Williams. I don’t think it was his lead, but it’s over the top.  This is what you would hear a news anchor say in a movie when the aliens land, and here he is reporting about a new report on global warming and climate change.  This is the NBC Nightly News.

WILLIAMS:  The world has never been spoken to quite this way.  We’ve never been warned like this before, all of us, about climate change. Nor have so many countries agreed quite this much on the clear and present danger it represents.  Here is the takeaway: Unless the world changes course quickly and dramatically, the fundamental systems that support human civilization are at risk!

RUSH:  Gee.  Well, it sounds like he bought it all.  I just don’t know if he really does.  Maybe he does.  I don’t know what to think. This is just so much sophistry.  This is beyond description.  It’s genuinely pathetic.  “The world has never been spoken to quite this way.  We’ve never been warned like this before, all of us, about climate change.

Irresponsible Earth Science

RUSH:  You know, this borders on irresponsible, when you get right down to it.  Here’s this guy at Columbia, “I would say, Charlie, December 15th is the last chance to keep that two degrees centigrade.”  What he means is that if we don’t drastically curtail capitalism and freedom and economic progress, ’cause that’s what these guys are talking about, that’s the danger.  The danger is productivity.  The danger is progress.  The danger is growing economies.  If we don’t stop that, Charlie, if we don’t lock in — ’cause what we’ve already done, we’ve guaranteed ourselves that by the end of the century, we’re gonna be two degrees centigrade higher.

MANN:  The Chinese government is actually having a serious discussion about instituting a carbon tax.  They recognize, the Chinese government has recognized the degradation, the damages that the emission of carbon is doing and they recognize that that has to be taken into account in any long-term, coherent, viable energy strategy.  In that sense, they’re way ahead of us because we have a US House of Representatives which has a science committee that is led by politicians who reject the notion that climate change even exists.  And we can’t have a serious discussion about policy as long as we’ve got a Congress or congressional leadership in the House that takes an anti-scientific stance when it comes to issues like climate change.  We’ve gotta move past that.

RUSH:  Have you seen a picture of Shanghai or Beijing lately?  You can’t see anything.  Smog, the pollution.  They’re not cutting back.  These countries, the ChiComs, India, they’re not going to cut back on their economic growth.  And the Third World countries want some economic growth.  They’re not gonna willingly stay poor and riding around on oxen just to keep these pointy-heads happy.
