The Working Class Republican… A Book Review

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

For those who know me well, there are two presidents that I loved more than all the others. The first is Calvin Coolidge. The second is Ronald Reagan who idolized Coolidge. A new book has come out that I highly recommend that is written by Henry Olsen, entitled: The Working Class Republican – Ronald Reagan And The Return Of Blue-Collar Conservatism. President Reagan changed my life and made me a staunch constitutional conservative. So of course, this book intrigued me.

In this book, Olsen takes a controversial stand that Roosevelt’s New Deal was more conservative than anyone knew. The book promotes that Ronald Reagan was the natural heir to the New Deal. Now, I personally don’t agree with that, but I find Olsen’s argument very interesting. I think you will too. Some of the things that Olsen puts forth are correct. Reagan appealed to both Democrats and Republicans because he used common sense, truth and passion to get his points across. And when he was elected, he had a clear plan, kept his promises and got things done. He worked within the government, not against it to accomplish his agenda. He was monstrously successful at it too.

From HarperCollins Publishers:

In this sure to be controversial book in the vein of The Forgotten Man, a political analyst argues that conservative icon Ronald Reagan was not an enemy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the New Deal, but his true heir and the popular program’s ultimate savior.

Conventional political wisdom views the two most consequential presidents of the twentieth-century—FDR and Ronald Reagan—as ideological opposites. FDR is hailed as the champion of big-government progressivism manifested in the New Deal. Reagan is seen as the crusader for conservatism dedicated to small government and free markets. But Henry Olsen argues that this assumption is wrong.

In The Working Class Republican, Olsen contends that the historical record clearly shows that Franklin Roosevelt and the New Deal itself were more conservative than either Democrats or Republicans believe, and that Ronald Reagan was more progressive than most contemporary Republicans understand. Olsen cuts through political mythology to set the record straight, revealing how Reagan—a longtime Democrat until FDR’s successors lost his vision in the 1960s—saw himself as FDR’s natural heir, carrying forward the basic promises of the New Deal: that every American deserves comfort, dignity, and respect provided they work to the best of their ability.

Olsen corrects faulty assumptions driving today’s politics. Conservative Republican political victories over the last thirty years have not been a rejection of the New Deal’s promises, he demonstrates, but rather a representation of the electorate’s desire for their success—which Americans see as fulfilling the vision of the nation’s founding. For the good of all citizens and the GOP, he implores Republicans to once again become a party of “FDR Conservatives”—to rediscover and support the basic elements of FDR (and Reagan’s) vision.

Henry Olsen is a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. A former president of the Commonwealth Foundation, he has also served in senior leadership roles at the Manhattan Institute and American Enterprise Institute. Olsen earned his B.A. from Claremont McKenna College and J.D. from the University of Chicago. This is a brilliant and thoughtful man. And one that would be fascinating to debate points with.

The book draws parallels between the Trump presidency and Reagan’s. Perhaps there are some, but for the most part, I don’t see them. Trump did mimic Reagan to some extent, but their styles and methodology are as different as night and day. Olsen applies to American politics what he terms the “truckers and cashiers” test. Truck driving is the biggest employer of white, working-class men, and being a cashier or waitress is the most common blue-collar job for white, working-class women. For Reagan, “virtually every speech had this person in mind, and virtually every speech had something that person could uniquely relate to.” Trump does this to some extent as well, but not nearly as effectively. He is attempting to work within the government framework somewhat, but not to the extent or the manner that Ronald Reagan did.

Read the book and decide for yourself if there is indeed a connection between FDR and Reagan. It’s a fascinating conclusion that deserves considering. But in the end… personally I feel Reagan was the disciple far more of Coolidge than he was of FDR. Pick up a copy of Olsen’s fascinating book here.

California Dems Take Off The Mask… Vote For Communists In Government Jobs [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

California is ripping off her mask and coming out of the red closet. They passed a bill last week that would no longer make it a firing offense for being a communist. We’ve known forever that the entire state is rife with commies… at least now, they’ve made it nice and legal to be one. You can still be fired for being part of a group that seeks to overthrow the government by force or violence, but who are we kidding? They are all for anyone seeking to remove President Trump. Considering Berkeley is ground zero for Antifa, you get my point.

The few and proud Republicans in the state are offended by this bill introduced by commies in the Bay Area. It goes against everything that is American, but then again… California isn’t exactly ‘American’ anymore, now is it? It is now officially a one-party Sanctuary State that is bankrupt and threatening the US government, the President of the United States and the rest of the nation. They have destroyed businesses and lives, while protecting criminals and communists. The comrades of California unite to destroy freedom in the America. The problem isn’t what McCarthy did… it’s what he didn’t finish. Isn’t that the real issue here? Da, comrade.

From The Sacramento Bee:

Being a communist would no longer be a fireable offense for California government employees under a bill passed Monday by the state Assembly.

Lawmakers narrowly approved the bill to repeal part of a law enacted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and ’50s when fear that communists were trying to infiltrate and overthrow the U.S. government was rampant. The bill now goes to the Senate.

It would eliminate part of the law that allows public employees to be fired for being a member of the Communist Party.

Employees could still be fired for being members of organizations they know advocate for overthrowing the government by force or violence.

The bill updates an outdated provision in state law, said Assemblyman Rob Bonta, the San Francisco Bay Area Democrat who authored the measure.

Some Assembly Republicans said the Cold War-era law should not be changed.

Assemblyman Randy Voepel, a Southern California Republican who fought in the Vietnam War, said communists in North Korea and China are “still a threat.”

“This bill is blatantly offensive to all Californians,” said Assemblyman Travis Allen, a Republican who represents a coastal district in Southern California. “Communism stands for everything that the United States stands against.”

They laughingly call this the elimination of Cold War-era language as if words are the problem and not communists. The Cold War never ended… it shifted. Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Alameda, introduced his bill before facing opposition from Assemblyman Travis Allen, R-Huntington Beach. Guess who won? They repealed part of a law enacted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and ’50s when there was widespread fear that communists were trying to infiltrate and overthrow the U.S. government. Except that fear was justified and communists have now infected and infiltrated every nook and cranny of our society. Just look around. It isn’t the Red Scare anymore, it’s the Red Reality.

Next stop for the bill is the Senate where it is expected to pass easily. Assemblyman Voepel is right… the communists of Russia, China and North Korea are still very much a threat and are woven into our society. They are our enemies and they are among us. Most government agencies and schools are rife with them. The communists are currently winning the fight and Americans better wake up to the fact that they are being subjected to a coup from within and fast. The communists are more emboldened each passing day.

As The Venezuelan President Dances On TV, Protesters Get Run Over By Government Vehicles [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Venezuela is coming apart at the seams. The one rich country is falling in much the same way the old Soviet Union did. People are starving there and Maduro’s fix is to raise the minimum wage. Nice trick, except there are no businesses left to do that and it would fail anyway as it always does. California… take note. Tens of thousands of Venezuelans are protesting in the streets against their Marxist government. And predictably, the Maduro thugs send in big armored vehicles to quell the masses. If protesters get in the way, they just run over them. Not a problem. These are the same paramilitary guys that were given guns as the populace was stripped of their means of self-defense.

Making matters even more surreal, as rioters were in the streets demanding this madness stop, President Maduro could be seen dancing on television as his country burns to the ground. The inflation rate in Venezuela is now somewhere between 1500% and 2000%. Their money is worthless. There is no food and people are desperate. I weep for Venezuela, which has abundant oil and natural resources, but now has no way to produce and sell them. It has beautiful countryside and the Marxists have ruined it all… just as they always do.

From The Daily Wire:

Anti-government protesters covered the streets of Caracas, Venezuela’s capital city, with rocks and Molotov cocktails as police in riot gear opened fire with tear gas and crowd-suppressing rounds.

On Wednesday — as seen in the video below — the angry protestors who want President Nicolas Maduro to step down decided to do battle with an armored military-style vehicle and the results are horrifying.

As the rioters hurled a Molotov cocktail onto the roof of the fortified National Guard vehicle, it backs away from the crowd. But when the mob surrounds two members of the security forces, the armored vehicle hits the gas and plows into the crowd, running over 22-year-old Pedro Michell Yaminne as someone yells, “Son of a —–!”

In another clip (below) that some might call the cherry on top of the “why socialism sucks” sundae, President Nicolas Maduro is seen dancing on TV as his country burns itself to the ground:

Per CNN, “At least 36 people have died and more than 700 have been injured in protests in the last month, the Venezuelan prosecutor’s office reported. Half the deaths occurred in the capital of a country mired in economic crisis and political instability. The victims included four teenagers, a National Guard member and a police officer.”

From the AFP:

Residents were stockpiling food, water and fuel. At least 70 stores have been raided since Tuesday.

“They are taking advantage of the protests to go out and rob,” said Magaly Oliveros, a 64-year-old housewife in Valencia.

“Today we are hungry, and tomorrow we will be hungrier still because there is nothing.”

If you think this can’t happen in America and fast, I suggest you look at the $21 trillion in debt we are sitting on. We are a breath away from being Venezuela or even Syria. This is what happens when you allow Marxists to control your country and you do not handle your debt. It never, ever ends well.

13 Reasons Why the Russian Probes Should Be Expanded [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

Never before in recent political history has a President been attacked as viciously as Donald Trump has. There was no ‘honeymoon’ for Trump and the leftists show no sign of easing up on him… ever. It’s funny how the Constitution is only important to the left when they want to take down a sitting President, legitimately elected by the American people. Dr. J. Michael Waller, who specializes in subversion, propaganda and information warfare, has written a wonderful article on why the Russian probes into their involvement in our elections and politics should be expanded. And it’s not because Trump is a Russian plant.

Under Barack Obama, a known and devout Marxist, the government was weaponized against the American people. The IRS was used to silence the Tea Party. The DOJ and DHS were used to subvert the Constitution. Our intelligence agencies were used to go after political opponents. All hallmark signs of a dictatorship and certainly not a free Republic as intended by our Founding Fathers. The left created an atmosphere of hatred, suspicion and divisiveness that produced chaos and helped along their Cloward and Piven strategy. It almost worked. What they didn’t plan on was Donald Trump actually winning the election.

From The Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump’s ideological opponents have opened up a serious challenge to governance since election day, according to one prolific scholar and national security expert.

Dr. J. Michael Waller, who has taught on subversion, propaganda and information warfare, says no other president has had his 100-day honeymoon stolen from him. Additionally, no other president has had their predecessor organizing private funds to undermine him as former President Barack Obama has done in concert with the left’s resistance to Trump.

Waller discusses the weaponization of government by Obama where he used the IRS, Department of Justice (DOJ), FBI and the national intelligence community against his political opponents, in this exclusive video interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation interview.

Did Obama’s FBI, CIA, NSA and DOJ meddle more in our national election than Russia? Did the Obama team use pretexts to allege Russian collaboration in order to spy on their political opponents?

Waller describes the various forces against Trump that make the president appear illegitimate. He names the militant extreme left, the permanent bureaucracy and mainstream elected Democrats who, with varying interlocking narratives, create a climate of fear, suspicion and hatred.

Suddenly, the Democrats are now hotly against the Russians… but when Obama was in control, they called conservatives “Russophobes” for holding on to Cold War antagonisms toward Russia. Waller says, “This is the first time you have ever had left-wingers protesting Kremlin subversion of American politics and actually caring about the Constitution.” That’s the same Constitution the Marxist left wants to rewrite and destroy, but until they get to that point, they want to use it against us.

Waller says we should expand the one-sided Russian subversion probe about 2016. I agree and have said this since the beginning of this whole dust up. Since Russia has worked to subvert American political efforts with propaganda and disinformation since the 1920s, a much closer investigation is way overdue. Waller has 13 memory-jarring reasons why the Democrats would find such an expanded probe uncomfortable, if only Republicans would consider such a tactic. According to Waller: “Ample evidence exists of illicit and/or damaging Russian efforts involving the Kremlin’s interference in American governmental operations, domestic politics, the U.S. economy and often to the detriment of America’s national security.” Exactly right.

The 13 reasons are listed below… these are just the titles. You need to read Waller’s piece to get the whole impact:

1. Russian interference in the 2012 Election.

2. Russian penetration of New York Democratic Party machine.

3. Thomas Pickering and Russian and Iranian interests.

4. John Podesta and $35 million from a Russian industrial espionage firm.

5. Tony Podesta lobbied for criminal Russian bank.

6. Podesta Group lobbied for same pro-Kremlin Ukrainians as Manafort.

7. Uranium One: Sale of 20% of US Uranium Production to Russia.

8. David and Simon Reuben.

9. Viktor Pinchuk.

10. Hunter Biden and the pro-Kremlin Ukrainian oligarch.

11. Hillary Clinton ‘Reset’ Partner Medvedev, now a focal point of Russian corruption.

12. Skolkovo industrial espionage and missile development.

13. Crowdstrike: Source of the narrative on Russian hacking for Trump.

Again from The Daily Caller – well done guys:

Part of Waller’s list includes the “Anna Chapman case” in New York in 2010, where Russians penetrated the Democratic political machine in the Empire State. He also discusses the Clinton “pay for play” uranium deal that seemed to result in zero political outrage from congressional Republicans.

According to Waller, “George Soros is the number one private sponsor of subversion against the United States,” with the Chinese, Saudis and the Russians as the predominant state sponsors of subversion. Soros funds a full range of groups that seek to bring down America, including Black Lives Matter, which promotes murderous violence against police officers, drug legalization, and open border policies that threaten self-government and national security.

Waller thinks he seeks to “cripple institutions of national identity, national security and individual liberty insofar as it protects the constitutional rights of Americans.”

I have written on many of these topics before. By all means look into Paul Manafort, Carter Page and Michael Flynn. All are deep in bed with the Russians. But while you are at it, take a long, hard look at the left side of the aisle. They are far worse and even further compromised by the Russians. The ongoing theme here of course is Russian communist infiltration. I suggest our government start taking it very seriously, because the Russians certainly do.

The March to War? Entire US Senate Called to White House for North Korea Briefing [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | I Have The Truth

Just when you thought the whole North Korea debacle was stagnating, things unfortunately got interesting this weekend. The first thing that happened is we found out that the US is sending 1,250 Marines to Australia. The North Koreans are claiming that we are staging our troops there for an invasion of the Hermit Kingdom. They are threatening to hit Sydney with nukes. I kind of doubt that they can, but who knows? As regional tensions escalate and a US carrier strike group approaches the Korean peninsula, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said the secretive regime “must be stopped” as it represented a threat to the region and, potentially, globally. The NoKos have also threatened the USS Carl Vinson, vowing to strike and sink it.

But wait… there is much more afoot. China ostensibly cut off North Korea’s oil and gas supplies this weekend. Gas prices rose by 85% there and all gas stations were shuttered. Then China froze and disabled all Chinese ATMs in the country. How do you spell panic? There’s more you aren’t hearing out there. President Trump called both China and Japan last night. No reason or transcript has been released. Chinese president Xi Jinping released a statement afterwards that said China opposed any actions that went against UN security council resolutions, as Japan confirmed it was joining drills with the strike group led by the USS Carl Vinson that is headed to Korean waters.

Rodong Sinmun, the official paper of the Worker’s Party of North Korea, highlighted the US Marines arrival in northern Australia on April 18th. The Marines will be joined by 12 military helicopters including five Cobra helicopters and four Osprey carriers. “This is the largest scale US military presence in Australia after World War 2,” the newspaper reported on Monday. Tomorrow is a another holiday for North Korea and America is watching to see if missiles are launched or a nuke is tested. Either will be seen as a provocation to war. U.S. commercial satellite images indicated increased activity around North Korea’s nuclear test site, while Kim has said that the country’s preparation for an ICBM launch is in its “final stage.” South Korea has said that something could now happen at any time.

From Fox News:

The entire U.S. Senate has been invited to the White House for a briefing Wednesday on the North Korea situation, amid escalating tensions over the country’s missile tests and bellicose rhetoric.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the upcoming briefing, for all 100 senators, on Monday.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats plan to provide the update to lawmakers.

It is rare for the entire Senate to be invited to such a briefing.

Spicer clarified that while the event will take place on the White House campus, it is technically a Senate briefing and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is the one who convened it.

The briefing, first reported by Reuters, was confirmed after President Trump earlier spoke to the leaders of both China and Japan.

A rare briefing will be held Wednesday to brief all 100 Senators at the White House. Mitch McConnell will chair the briefing as Majority Leader. The President himself has called this meeting along with his military leaders. Some say it is for sanctions against the NoKos, but that would be overkill. These types of briefings are called when a President is seeking permission to go to war. Whether that is what this is or not is yet to be seen. A similar briefing of all House members is also being arranged.

All 100 senators have been asked to the White House for the briefing by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the aides said. I don’t know about you, but the war drums just got deafening over here. The briefing will be at 3 pm EST. Tensions over North Korea have been escalating higher and higher over the last couple of weeks. It looks like we may be getting ready to dance after all.

Patriots vs. Commies: Berkeley Turns Into a War Zone [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | Right Wing News

Things got frisky in Berkeley, California Saturday when Antifa leftists and Trump supporters faced off. I believe this is only going to get worse over time and spread. The police basically stood back and did nothing. Both sides got their violence on and it was not pretty. One Trump supporter punched a female leftist in the face. He didn’t hold back either… wonder if he realizes he could have killed her. The Antifa thugs wore coverings over their faces and many were in fact bought and paid for by the radical left. Most are college students who have been taught over and over that Marxists are above others and are morally superior to those on the right.

At least 20 were arrested in the violent standoffs, but not until they had their fun. Berkeley was a war zone this weekend. 11 people were injured, including one officer who inhaled some variant of tear gas. There were hundreds of protesters in the streets and many were armed with one form of weapon or another. The Trump supporters wore helmets and came prepared this time. Police are saying there will be more arrests once they review video and social media of the event. There’s a lot of it out there too. Most officers donned gas masks because of tear gas. Fireworks were thrown into the mass of people and police said that pepper spray was used in the crowd.

From KRON 4:

BERKELEY (KRON) — Twenty people are in custody and 11 people were injured after an enormous group of pro and anti-Trump demonstrators clashed in Berkeley.

Hundreds of President Trump supporters and anti-Trump protesters held dual demonstrations Saturday near the downtown area at 2151 Martin Luther King Jr. Way.

Police expect to make more arrests once they review video and social media evidence.

KRON4 had a team of reporters at Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Center Park, where fights broke out and gas was released on the crowd earlier in the morning.

Those arrested were booked into Santa Rita Jail, according to police.

Due to the release of gas, officers were forced to wear gas masks.

“A large portion of the crowd has now moved into the street and some fights have broken out,” according to Berkeley police. “Currently, Allston Way between Milvia St. and Martin Luther King Jr. Way is blocked.”

Part of the demonstration crowd moved to Shattuck Avenue and Center Street, and these roads were blocked off.

Officers also said they came across several prohibited items including flagpoles, a knife, a stun gun, helmets and signs, and flags attached to poles. Those items were strictly prohibited and officers had confiscated many of them earlier in the day. The Downtown Berkeley BART station was shut down due to a “civil disturbance,” according to BART officials. When officers were asked about the fights, they said they were not at liberty to discuss their tactics. “Our No. 1 goal is to make sure that our community has an opportunity to practice its First Amendment rights,” police Sgt. Andrew Frankel said. But widely circulated video from the scene Saturday showed many Berkeley police officers standing around doing nothing as people literally beat each other into the ground. Several officers said they were ordered to stand down by the Chief of Police.

Within just a few hours of the protests starting it turned violent as Antifa activists threw rocks, used pepper spray and released tear gas at the Trump supporters. Many of the right-wingers wore head and face gear to protect themselves from the expected onslaught and began chanting “Trust fund commies, off our street!” The Trump supporters did not hold back this time and were yelling for the commies to get out of California. Refreshing.

Trump supporters had organized a Patriot Day rally, starring Lauren Southern, a former reporter for conservative Canadian outlet The Rebel Media and Kyle Chapman, a man who achieved Internet stardom as “Based Stickman” after assaulting a member of Antifa with a stick at the March 4th scuffle in Berkeley, among others. This was not a rally or a protest really… it was an all-out brawl. It was total chaos in the streets. Antifa showed up and started the violence, so this can squarely be laid at their feet. But the right decided to dance for a change and boy did they.

Antifa claims to want to stop fascists, but they are the fascists in reality. Every time they appear en masse in black masks, they’re just encouraging millions of Americans to hate them with a burning passion. And Americans are not going to stand passively by while communists run wild in the streets… not anymore.

FBI Obtained FISA Warrant for Trump’s Adviser Carter Page for His Connections to the Russians

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | Right Wing News

Carter Page is in hot water and it’s about to boil it would seem. This is a man I wrote on and warned about long ago. Trump’s team is claiming he was never connected to them, but that just isn’t true. He was an adviser to the Trump campaign early on. To be fair, Trump cut the guy off early on as well. And it would seem with good reason. It turns out the FBI did have a FISA warrant against Page. Why? Because he was approached in 2013 by the Russians to spy for them. He claims he turned them down… but he did meet with them. Please note that Page has not been charged with any crime, which indicates to me that they have nothing on him or he would have already been behind bars.

The FBI still strongly suspects that Page was acting as an agent for the Russians. I do too, just for the record. Page is heavy into investments in Russia… especially oil and gas. If I had to guess, I would bet he approached an intermediary for Trump’s team to ‘help’ them out. I also seriously suspect that Paul Manafort, who took millions every year from the Russians, was also compromised. This doesn’t make President Trump guilty of collusion with the Russians, but it does show his camp was vulnerable to penetration by the Russkies. I think it is pretty evident that Trump is not in bed with the Russians… but the Russians were definitely trying to crawl between the sheets with him.

From The Daily Caller:

The FBI gained approval from a secret federal court last summer to conduct communications surveillance against Carter Page, a former adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, The Washington Post is reporting.

The revelation confirms for the first time that a federal surveillance warrant, known as a FISA warrant, was issued for a member of the Trump campaign as part of a federal investigation of potential ties between the Republican’s associates and the Russian government.

In the application for the warrant, federal officials laid out what they said was evidence that there was probable cause showing that Page was acting as an agent of the Russian government, officials told The Post.

That evidence included contacts in 2013 with Russian spies who tried to recruit Page in New York City. The details of that recruitment attempt were laid out in a sealed FBI complaint filed in Jan. 2015. BuzzFeed News published the complaint earlier this month. Page denied that he was successfully recruited or that he shared any sensitive information with the agents.

I have written for years that you cannot trust the Russians. Just because we moronically cut back on our spies, it doesn’t mean they did. In fact, they have stepped up their intelligence. Individuals like Carter Page who have financial ties to Russia are prime candidates to be flipped to become spies for the Kremlin. Federal officials cited other contacts between Page and Russian operatives in the FISA application. Those contacts have not been made public… yet.

Page is an energy consultant who runs the Manhattan-based firm Global Energy Capital and he was brought on to the campaign in March as a foreign policy adviser. He served in a low-level role and is said to have never met Trump. The Democrats are trying to insinuate this means that Trump was doing the bidding of the Russians. I don’t believe so and there is no evidence of that. Page, whose offices are in a building adjacent to Trump Tower, drew national attention in July after he traveled to Moscow to give a speech at a university commencement ceremony. While in Moscow, Page met Arkady Dvorkovich, Russia’s deputy prime minister. Page officially left the Trump campaign in September.

Page is the only one who was actually surveilled it would seem. There’s nothing on Paul Manafort, Roger Stone or Michael Flynn. All of these men have had iffy contacts with the Russians at one point or another. All of them have been paid by the Russians as well. That doesn’t mean much… all have been under scrutiny and more will come out on them. Page is denying all wrong doing and says he will be proven innocent of connections to Putin. He cites false information on him in that cooked up dossier on Trump. We’ll see. The truth will eventually come out and this doesn’t make the Trump administration look good. But there has been no charges of wrong doing so far. Innocent until proven guilty… the media should remember that. And guilt by association won’t hold up here.

UPDATE: The Daily Caller is now reporting that Corey Lewandowski was the one who introduced Carter Page to President Trump, which I find very interesting because I heard him myself on Fox News when he claimed that he had never met Page and he’d never been part of Trump’s campaign. Obviously, that was a fib. Lewandowski told The Daily Caller he did not remember ever meeting Page. Right. “I’ve never met or spoken to Carter Page in my life,” Lewandowski insisted during a Fox News interview with Jeanine Pirro last month. “I was on the campaign for 18 months, I never met the guy, and for anybody to say otherwise is factually inaccurate. I don’t know who Carter Page is, I never had a conversation with Carter Page, I never met Carter Page, and anybody who says otherwise is not being truthful,” insisted Lewandowski, who was fired from the campaign on June 20th.

Sources are saying that Lewandowski introduced Page to Trump campaign policy director Sam Clovis sometime in late 2015 or early 2016. During the brief encounter, which occurred in New York City, Lewandowski suggested that the two get to know each other. Page, the managing partner of Global Energy Partners, an energy consulting firm, would join the campaign as an adviser several months later. They are reporting that Clovis brought Page onto the campaign team. Lewandowski has had at least one other documented interaction with Page. He was the campaign official who gave final approval to Page’s visit to Moscow.

WAR DRUMS: A US Navy Strike Group Is Heading For The Korean Peninsula [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | Right Wing News

President Trump has ordered a US Navy strike group to head for the Korean peninsula. Fresh off showing our enemies that we will not tolerate genocide or the use of chemical weapons in Syria, a message is now being sent loud and clear to both the Chinese and the North Koreans. Either Kim Jong-un stops his aggressive moves with ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons, or he will be answering to the American military. This isn’t a big stick, it’s a club and I believe it is a wise move. Trump can either take out Jong-un, nuclearize South Korea or hit North Korea. One of those options is most likely to take place in the near future. We are out of options.

However, for now, the US is considering financial sanctions. I’m not too sure that will work, but it seems to be the next step. Sanctions in my opinion will cause North Korea to make a move. Their people are already starving because of the communists leading their country. “If they continue to develop nuclear capability and create missiles that can reach the United States, that changes the calculus for us,” said one diplomatic source. And time is running out on the nuclear clock. North Korea called America’s missile strikes on Syria ‘unforgivable’.

From the Daily Mail:

A U.S. Navy strike group will be moving toward the western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula as a show of force, a U.S. official told Reuters on Saturday, as concerns grow about North Korea’s advancing weapons program.

Earlier this month North Korea tested a liquid-fueled Scud missile which only traveled a fraction of its range.

The strike group, led by the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson will make its way from Singapore toward the Korean peninsula, according to the official, who was not authorized to speak to the media and requested anonymity.

‘We feel the increased presence is necessary,’ the official said, citing North Korea’s worrisome behavior.

In a statement late Saturday, the U.S. Navy’s Third Fleet said the strike group had been directed to sail north, but it did not specify the destination.

The military vessels will operate in the Western Pacific rather than making previously planned port visits to Australia, it added.

This year North Korean officials, including leader Kim Jong Un, have repeatedly indicated an intercontinental ballistic missile test or something similar could be coming, possibly as soon as April 15, the 105th birthday of North Korea’s founding president and celebrated annually as ‘the Day of the Sun.’

Bill Clinton started this whole mess with North Korea. He also gave military secrets to the Chinese. Since then, we have bowed to extortion by the Hermit Kingdom. But it’s gone way beyond that now. Obama made it much worse, so now Trump is being forced to clean up his mess. It probably won’t end well. Kim Jong-un is even more insane than his father was… dangerously so. He’s just itching to use nukes against the US.

The Carl Vinson Strike Group comprises an aircraft carrier and other warships. I am told that the USS Champlain, USS Meyer and USS Murphy along with a nuclear weapon launch submarine are part of the group – no verification of that. They aren’t messing around over this and it is not an idle threat. US Pacific Command described the deployment – now heading towards the western Pacific – as a prudent measure to maintain readiness in the region. President Trump has said the US is prepared to act alone to deal with the nuclear threat from North Korea. “The number one threat in the region continues to be North Korea, due to its reckless, irresponsible and destabilising programme of missile tests and pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability,” US Pacific Command spokesman Dave Benham said.

The strike group is officially comprised of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, two guided-missile destroyers and a guided-missile cruiser. As well as massive striking power, the carrier group – headed by Admiral Nora Tyson – has the capability to intercept ballistic missiles.
It was originally due to make port calls in Australia, but instead has been diverted from Singapore to the west Pacific – where it recently conducted exercises with the South Korean Navy.

North Korean is said to be prepping the testing of an intercontinental ballistic missile. There is also whispers of another nuclear test in the works. Trump warned last week that the policy of ‘strategic patience’ with this rogue regime was over. “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will,” he declared bluntly.

Russia and Iran Draw Their Own Red Line – Threaten The United States With War After Syrian Missile Strikes [VIDEO]

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | Right Wing News

It looks like Russia and Iran are drawing their own red lines today. They are threatening deadly force if America strikes Syria again after last week’s proportional response to Assad gassing his own people. President Trump ordered the firing of 60 Tomahawk missiles at an airbase in Syria, which destroyed most of the base. The act humiliated Vladimir Putin who now feels he must step up his game. Iran went silent, which worries me… Iran and Hezbollah have their sights set on Israel and the silence indicates to me a preparation for strikes, not a backing down. “We will respond to any aggression powerfully, as Russia and Iran would never allow the U.S. to dominate the world,” read a statement issued by the Syria-Iran-Russia Joint Operations Room, a combination of forces operating on behalf of Assad in Syria. The statement was first published in Iran’s state-controlled media.

We are very close to war now and it would not take much for all out skirmishes to break out. President Trump did the right thing last week… he responded to Assad appropriately. It should have been done long ago. There is no way to avoid the coming confrontation with the New Axis of Evil: Russia, Iran, China and North Korea. Right now, we have the USS Champlain, USS Meyer and USS Murphy, along with a nuclear weapon launch submarine en route to the Korean peninsula. We also have a military presence in the South China Sea. So now we are facing military threats on at least three fronts, four if you count the Straits of Hormuz.

From The Sun:

The command centre for the two countries and allied groups released a joint statement today saying they would ‘respond to future breaches of red lines with force’.

RUSSIA and Iran have said they will respond to further American military actions following the air strike in Syria last week.

In a joint statement, the command centre for the two countries and allied groups said: “We will respond to any aggression.”

The statement read: “What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well.”

The warning comes on the same day that:

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani strongly condemned the missile strikes as a “flagrant US aggression on Syria.” Iran is financing Assad and is a strong ally. They are interested in Syria’s seaports. Rouhani is calling for an impartial investigation into the chemical attack that killed at least 83 people. In other words, the UN, which is now populated by dictators, communists and radical Islamists. He warned that the American strikes in response risked escalating extremism in the region, reported Iranian state television. Let me translate… that means Iran will unleash even more terrorist strikes. Russia is in this for geographic control and energy resources.

In a phone call with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, Rouhani told him: “Allegations that Syria launched the chemical attack were just a pretext to disrupt the Syrian peace process.” The evidence that Syria propagated the attack is overwhelming. The rebels do not have the funds or the technology to mass produce Sarin. They also don’t have a delivery system. I understand the plane that dropped the Sarin was a Russian plane outfitted for just such a move. But it could have been Syrian aircraft just as easily.

President Trump has had massive support for his military move across the planet. Israel, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Australia, France, Germany and the EU as a whole have voiced their strong support for the missile strike.

But Assad is doubling down and is now bombing the same town he gassed. The Syrian state news agency SANA said Assad told Rouhani the Syrian people and army were “determined to crush terrorism in every part of Syrian territory” – a reference to the rebels who have been fighting his bloody rule for six years. He also thanked Rouhani for Iran’s support for “the Syrian nation.” In a speech on Sunday, Rouhani also criticized US-allied Gulf Arab states for endorsing the missile strike. He said: “Unfortunately, there are countries in our own region which encourage America’s acts of aggression.” He warned: “Your turn will come too.” We will see what develops this week… the war drums are deafening now.

The diplomatic row was sparked by the US bombing a Syrian airbase (pictured) in response to Assad’s chemical weapon attacks.

The strike was designed to warn Assad not to use chemical weapons on his citizens.

Nikki Haley Receives Text At UN: “Thank you for what you said today. It’s so good to see America lead.”

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton | Right Wing News

Nikki Haley received a surprise text at the United Nations. It allegedly said, “Thank you for what you said today. It’s so good to see America lead.” I’m not surprised she got that text. For all I know, that could have been Israel sending it, but it is indeed good to see actual leadership in America again. I know that many Trump supporters don’t agree with me. They claim we should not be the global police and should not interfere in other country’s affairs. I’ve got news for all of you… what happens globally affects America period. You may not want conflict or war, but other countries don’t give a damn about that. You may not believe in war, but it believes in us.

We have waited years for various gassing attacks in Syria to be investigated and for the United Nations to do something, anything and we are still waiting. I think that what President Trump did this week was the right thing to do and it sent not only Syria, but Russia, Iran, China and North Korea a strong message that there is a new sheriff in town and he doesn’t play with red lines and rhetoric. He’s deadly serious about stopping our enemies and have no doubt that Syria, Russia, Iran, China and North Korea are just that… American enemies. Grow up… this isn’t some theoretical reality where we can just turn our back on the world. This is real life and we have to stop these evil blackhats before they attack America. Hesitation is viewed as weakness and acquiescence.

From the Independent Review Journal:

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley boldly confronted Russia and Syria during a United Nations Security Council meeting on Wednesday, staring down the Russian ambassador in moment that went viral.

“How many more children have to die before Russia cares?” she asked the Russian ambassador in front of the world.

Later that night, Haley made an appearance at the Women in the World Summit in New York City and revealed the text message she subsequently received from another member of the U.N. Security Council.

“Thank you for what you said today. It’s so good to see America lead,” the text reportedly read.

Haley insinuated that the message was meaningful to her because leading is exactly “what we’re trying to do.”

There is nothing that will move a heart like watching dozens of children… babies… die horrifically. Assad and the Russians could care less. Given the opportunity, they would use that tactic anywhere they land if it won them power, wealth, real estate and natural resources. Nikki Haley is right here. It is long past time we act like the world leaders we are. No nation building… but when tyrants kill the innocent and rage unabated and someone needs to step in, we have a moral obligation to do so. And we have a military presence that should show strength, not the cowardice the Obama administration mandated.

“The way you lead is to make sure they know what you’re for, they know what you’re against, and they never question where you are,” Haley added. Exactly right. You actually LEAD, you don’t vacillate. President Trump’s actions this week in response to a chemical attack by Assad against his own, shows a definitive shift in America military policy. And don’t say, “Well, it could have been the rebels!” No, it wasn’t. They would have no way of dispersing those chemical agents since they don’t have planes and Assad and Russia always blame these actions on their victims. It’s right out of their playbooks.

Our allies are cheering the action and breathing a huge sigh of relief. Our enemies are calling it an act of aggression. It’s an act as old as time. But President Trump is no ‘lead from behind’ president as Barack Obama was. Peace through strength has once again taken center stage.
