To Stop Democrat Obstruction of Trump Nominees, Republicans To Change Senate Rules

Senate Democrats have taken the simple process of a yes-no vote to confirm President Trump’s judicial nominations and by way of debate rules turned them into a kind of retaliatory weapon to obstruct anything he says or recommends and to punish (or so it seems)  those who have put their lives on hold while they wait for the Senate to approve their nomination. It appears that there may be a bit more unity developing among the Republicans, however, since as time goes on, more and more of the more moderate (read, left-leaning) Republican members are getting to see up close how deranged their Democrat colleagues have become in their determination to stand in the president’s way, come hell or high water. They are about to initiate a change in the rules they follow that decrees the number of hours required for nomination confirmations.

From Breitbart:

WASHINGTON, DC – Senate Republicans are preparing to reinterpret Senate Rules in coming weeks to reduce the number of hours required to confirm presidential nominations, responding to Democrats’ unprecedented obstruction of President Trump’s nominees for both the judiciary and the Executive Branch.
Under Senate Rule XXII, debate on any matter can continue indefinitely. This is called a filibuster, when senators are deliberately continuing debate for the purpose of preventing a vote – unless three-fifths of senators (60) vote to break the filibuster by invoking cloture. Once cloture is invoked, further debate is limited to 30 additional hours, then a final vote must take place.

Rule XXII is designed to force debate on legislation. Historically it has generally not been used on presidential nominations. You can amend legislation, but a nomination is a simple yes-or-no proposition.

Article II of the Constitution specifies that all federal judges require Senate confirmation, as do senior positions in the administration. Currently, 1,200 positions out of 4,100 political appointments in a presidential administration are “principal officers” that are nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

Theoretically, the Senate could use its confirmation power to keep seats on the federal judiciary – including even the Supreme Court – open indefinitely. Senators could also employ it to hamstring a presidential administration by denying a vote to presidential nominees for key positions in the government.

In fact, that is what Senate Democrats are doing now. Judges are being slow-walked, with more cloture votes being required in two years for President Trump’s picks than all the judicial nominations of every previous president combined since the filibuster was created in the late 1800s. Similarly, hundreds of the 1,200 Senate-confirmed positions in the Trump administration are still vacant.

Various GOP senators are giving different timeframes for when the vote on reinterpreting the 30-hour rule will occur, with some saying “this month” and others referring to “weeks.” The vote does not appear imminent in light of certain vote priorities the Senate majority already have planned, but it looks increasingly likely that it will happen sometime in April.

I’m sure that many of you, like me, think it’s way past time that they got back in the game and stopped making everything about political maneuvering for the sake of maintaining a grip on power or denying the president any of his vision for the needs of the country. So many of the elected politicians have become so entrenched in protecting their power and influence that it has come at the expense of those they are supposed to be representing, and I think the voters are beyond tired of it.

In the past, I have called them our “leaders,” but I saw someone’s comment one day that pointed out how they are supposed to be our “representatives” in Congress, not our “leaders,” so I am changing my terminology on that. Yes, they are supposed to take the initiative to get things moving, but it’s to reflect the will of those they represent, not their wishes for a fatter paycheck or a one-world government. I just compare it to the use of the words Democratic party vs. them being the Democrat party. It’s a slight twist of vocabulary that makes a large difference in the real world of the term’s application.

Missouri Signs Bill Into Place Declaring the State as a ‘Sanctuary of Life’

The momentum towards protecting the life of the unborn and away from abortion is getting a much-needed boost once again. We recently shared articles on the progress we’re seeing in other states in the article Abortion Ban Law Signed Into Effect By Alabama’s Governor! and we gave an update with more details to that decision in the article REPORT: Fact-Checking Alabama’s Latest Abortion Ban Bill – 9 Things We Should Know. Of course, there was an outburst from pro-choice Hollywood types who put up a fuss (like they’re really going to make a difference…) that we illustrated in the article This Ends with Impeachment and People in the Streets’ – Hollywood Stars Flip Out Over Alabama’s New Law. The good news (in my opinion) is that despite all the objections from the pro-choice crowd, more states have joined the movement away from infanticide. Last Thursday, Missouri has now joined the list with new legislation protecting human life in the womb.

This from Breitbart:

The Missouri Senate passed legislation Thursday that contains some of the nation’s strongest safeguards for unborn babies and their mothers, including a ban on abortions from eight weeks of pregnancy and a declaration that Missouri is to be a “sanctuary of life.”

“In recognition that God is the author of life,” begins the Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act (HB 126) that state House Speaker Elijah Haahr (R) labeled the “strongest pro-life bill in the country.”

“[I]t is the intention of the general assembly of the state of Missouri” to “defend the right to life of all humans, born and unborn” and to “declare that the state and all of its political subdivisions are a ‘sanctuary of life’ that protects pregnant women and their unborn children,” the legislation states.

“This comprehensive, life-affirming legislation prohibits abortions once a heartbeat has been detected, prohibits abortions when a baby is capable of feeling pain, and would outlaw abortion in Missouri upon the reversal of Roe v. Wade,” summarized state Sens. Dave Schatz and Caleb Rowden in a joint statement.

The bill’s approval by the Republican-led state Senate, with a vote of 24-10, came just hours after Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed into law a bill that bans most abortions at any time during pregnancy, except those necessary in order to prevent “a serious health risk to the unborn child’s mother.”

The Missouri legislation now heads to the Republican-led House for approval, before it can go to the desk of Gov. Mike Parson, also a Republican, who expressed support for it on Wednesday.

“Thanks to the leaders in the House and Senate, we have the opportunity to be one of the strongest pro-life states in the country,” Parson said.

The measure protects unborn babies from abortion beginning at eight weeks of pregnancy, with exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for pregnancies resulting from rape or incest.

Doctors who perform abortions after the eight-week period could face five to 15 years of jail time. Women who receive abortions after the eighth week of pregnancy would not be prosecuted.

Additionally, if Roe v. Wade were to be overturned, Missouri’s measure includes a complete ban on abortions except in cases of medical emergencies.

The Missouri legislation also contains contingency plans if the courts block the proposed eight-week ban, including a range of bans from 14-20 weeks of pregnancy, and a ban on all abortions due to race, sex or a diagnosis of Down syndrome.

Source: Breitbart News

The best news in all of this is that even Democrats are starting to move away from pro-choice and towards pro-life. A poll was taken by SBA List which showed that 82% of Missouri voters supported laws prohibiting late-term abortions. 66% of those polled were Democrats, 83% were independents, 83% were women, and 61% of those previously calling themselves pro-choice! State Senator Andrew Koenig was quoted as saying “The abortion rate is plummeting, even in places where there is access to abortion, and the Constitution says that every person has a right to life and it should be protected.”

Of course, Democrat legislators weren’t unanimous in their acceptance of the bill. State Senator Lauren Arthur went on record with the statement “This language four years ago would be unthinkable. But elections have consequences. And with new Supreme Court justices, there is a renewed attempt to overturn Roe v. Wade. And with that, there is a push in this Legislature to pass what I would characterize as very extreme legislation.”

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Senator Arthur says this is extreme legislation, and I say it’s past the time we moved in this direction. The “procedure” of abortion is as extreme as you can get when it comes to destroying life. It is, plain and simple, MURDER. I think it’s the highest crime imaginable because it is assisted, premeditated, and viewed by many supporters as acceptable and is carried out without the slightest hint of remorse for the act. It should have never gotten a foothold in our country, and extreme actions require extreme corrective measures to right the ship.

REPORT: Ramadan Rage 2019 Continues: 404 Injured, 364 Massacred in 2 Weeks

A few days ago we shared the article Jihadis Kill 165, Wound 145 Others In The First Week of Ramadan. The number of casualties has more than doubled since that report was posted. In the previous article, I mentioned that one of the things I had not known beforehand was that many of these attacks are carried out by Muslims – against other Muslims! To me, attacking another “fellow believer” is so foreign that it falls completely into the realm of the incomprehensible.

This from Breitbart:

Islamic terrorists have carried out an estimated 76 attacks in nearly 15 countries since the beginning of Ramadan this month, killing at least 364 people and injuring 404 others in the first two weeks of the holiest month for Muslims, a Breitbart News tally shows.

That means, on average, jihadis killed at least 25 people and injured about another 30 each day since Ramadan began at sunset on May 5. This year, the holy period is expected to last through sundown on June 4.

Breitbart News’ count this week covers the 14 days of May 6 through May 19.

The tally includes a total of 768 casualties (364 deaths, 404 injuries) in 14 countries: Afghanistan, Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad, Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Kenya, Somalia, Libya, Mali, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Syria.

Afghan Taliban narco-jihadis surpassed their Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) rivals as the world’s chief perpetrators of terrorist attacks during Ramadan this year, with 29 attacks that killed 146 and wounded 156.

ISIS closely trailed the Afghan Taliban with 23 assaults that resulted in 105 fatalities and 132 injuries.

The Taliban is responsible for 40 percent of all fatalities while ISIS was behind an estimated 30 percent.

Overall, the Taliban carried out nearly 40 percent (302) of all casualties, including injuries.

Breitbart News found that, so far, Afghanistan (160 deaths, 189 injuries), Nigeria (50 deaths, 33 injuries) and Iraq (46 deaths, 54 injuries) are the bloodiest countries during the holy month.

Jihadis and other Islamists encourage their followers and supporters to escalate attacks during the holy month, arguing that Allah exceptionally rewards martyrdom during Ramadan.

The Afghan Taliban rejected a Ramadan ceasefire offer by the Afghan government this month. Instead, Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the narco-jihadi group, proclaimed, “As jihad is … the best part of worship, doing it on Ramadan is rewarded more than in other months.”

The vast majority of Ramadan attack victims are Muslims in Africa and the Middle East.

Breitbart News primarily gleans its data for its Ramadan death tally from the Religion of Peace website, but it also relies upon other databases as well as media and government reports.

News outlets and officials may update some of the casualty figures as some of the wounded victims succumb to their injuries, potentially altering the count after Breitbart News publishes this report.

Most Muslims follow the peaceful Ramadan tradition of abstaining from eating, drinking, smoking, having sex, and other physical needs each day, starting from before the break of dawn until sunset. Nevertheless, the number of attacks at the hands of jihadis tends to escalate during the month when compared to other times of the year.

Breitbart News removed the May 11 attack in Pakistan by the ethnic separatist group Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) as experts disagree on whether the group is primarily jihadist or secular separatist in nature.

A list of incidents broken down by location and date can be viewed at the bottom of the above report HERE.

So what is happening in the “religion of peace?” To me, on the surface, it sounds similar to what we hear goes on in inner-city Chicago. There’s a lot of noise being made about white-on-black crime there, but a closer examination reveals that black-on-black crime is more the norm. Is the Muslim religion heading in the same direction? Can “moderate” Muslims be safe with a radical rogue element on the loose killing any who do not agree with their radicalized agendas? There are so many questions that can be raised, but to whom are people going to turn for the answers?

The Holocaust Was a Hoax? So Says Al Jazeera

We’ve posted numerous articles on social media censorship, more specifically, one social media presence whose name begins with the initials F-B censoring conservative pages and personalities. It doesn’t take much examination to see how far to the left their content leans, and we have yet another case to prove that point. Over the weekend, a highly anti-Semitic video was posted by Al Jazeera, the Qatari-funded middle eastern TV channel that came to fame as the only ones to broadcast live feeds during the Afghanistan war mess. Al Jazeera took down the video – but guess who left it up?!

This from TGP:

On Friday Al-Jazeera’s AJ+ Arabic channel posted a shocking anti-Semitic video which called into question the “truth of the Holocaust.”

Editor’s note: The video was posted on YouTube HERE,  but has since been blocked, citing copyright issues with Al Jazeera. Interesting, isn’t it? Another case of social media cooperation with an organization pushing anti-Semitism. A transcript was printed out before access to the video was terminated, and can be seen below.

The actress in the video Muna Hawwa argues that Israel was the biggest winner from the Holocaust. Hawwa also claims that the number of Jewish Holocaust victims remains “one of the most prominent historical debates to this day.”

The video is packed full of anti-Semitic attacks.

The video was up on Facebook for the weekend until Al-Jazeera took the video down.
It was not removed by Facebook.

Meanwhile, Facebook continues to ban conservatives and conservative content on a weekly basis.

Here is the transcript from the ad via MEMRI:

Muna Hawwa: The narrative that six million Jews were killed by the Nazi movement was adopted by the Zionist movement, and it is being reiterated every year on the so-called “Holocaust Memorial Day.” Let us tell you about the story of the Holocaust.

[…]More than nine million Jews lived in Europe before World War II, most of them in the countries that would later be taken over by the Nazis. After the Holocaust, the Zionist movement claimed that 2 out of every 3 Jews were killed.

[…]The Nazis targeted anyone they considered to be “human surplus” – either because they were “racially inferior,” or because they were not accepted politically. This means that the Jews were not the only victims of that era. The Nazis targeted the Romani, the Slavic nations, and some Arabs, as well as other groups like communists, socialists, trade unions, homosexuals, and the handicapped.

[…]Along with others, the Jews faced a policy of systematic persecution, which culminated in the “Final Solution,” or annihilation. Their books were burned, they were fired from their jobs, their property was confiscated, and they were torn from their homes, in order to live in the secluded ghetto neighborhoods. They were forced to wear a special badge on their clothes. They were sent to detention centers, and they were worked to death in forced labor. The victims of the Nazis – who were following Hitler’s orders – exceeded 20 million people. The Jews were part of them. So why is there a focus only on them? The Jewish groups had financial resources, media institutions, research centers, and academic voices that managed to put a special spotlight on the Jewish victims of the Nazis. Nevertheless, the number of victims of the Holocaust remains one of the most prominent historical debates to this day. People are divided between those who deny the annihilation, others who think that the outcome was exaggerated, and others yet who accuse the Zionist movement of blowing it out of proportion in the service of the plan to establish what would later be known as the “State of Israel.” Let us take a pause here. How did Israel benefit from the Holocaust? In the first months following the Nazis’ rise to power, an agreement was signed between Nazi Germany and the Jewish Agency, the purpose of which was to make it easy for the Jews to immigrate to Palestine, in exchange for surrendering their property to Germany.

[…]This agreement, along with other documents, made some people believe that Hitler supported Zionism. Former Mayor of London [Ken Livingstone] publicly declared this belief, and he was suspended from the Labour Party because of this. The persecution and the suffering – the much-regurgitated narrative of the Holocaust sorrows – paved the way for the Jewish immigration to Palestine.

[…] [Germany] is still paying huge reparations for what happened in World War II to a state that did not even exist at the time of the annihilation. Greece, the Serbs, Yugoslavia, and the Romani people have all suffered, but the Germany reparations to those victims cannot be compared to the payments to Israel, which, in turn, devoured the reparations of all the Jewish victims of Nazism. The Holocaust never stops to be a tragic event. Several countries denounce it as a crime. Dozens of institutions sponsor large museums in various capitals in the world commemorating the tragedy of the Jews. This provoked great interest in this incident, even though similar crimes, no less heinous, are still being perpetrated against other peoples. The annihilation of any people because of their race, sex, or religion, is an unacceptable thing that deserves to be strongly denounced. Denouncing the Holocaust is a moral obligation, but Israel is the biggest winner from the Holocaust, and it uses the same Nazi justifications as a launching pad for the racial cleansing and annihilation of the Palestinians. The main ideology behind the “State of Israel” is based on religious, national, and geographic concepts that suckled from the Nazi spirit and its main notions. So how can a Palestinian denounce a crime that has become the flip side of his own tragedy?

What I’m about to say next is my own opinion only, so as the saying goes, everyone has one.

As I watch the things that the various social media, broadcast media, and the entertainment industries, along with the Democrat politicians who share similar views, it becomes obvious that there is a much greater substructure below what we are allowed to see. I think of it as a type of iceberg. We only get to see the upper 10%, but below the waterline is another 90% that is hidden from view.

This video puts a voice and a face up there for us to see, and the mistake I believe they are making is that they are dismissing Israel’s unique place in the world and that there is a person, referred to by the Israelites as G-D, who is watching over them. The anti-Semites may believe they’re getting the upper hand over Israel, but there is another hand poised to give them a spanking from which there will be no escape if they continue to go against His people.

By now you no doubt have seen videos showing multiple screens of news anchors across the nation reading word-for-word from the same script. If we were to look at just one channel, they seem very sincere and believable, but when you can watch dozens of screens side by side with nearly perfectly synchronized speech patterns and identical phraseology, it becomes evident that they are nothing more than paid actors similar to what we see on the big screen from Hollywood. They put on the makeup, dress up in the required “uniform,” and read their lines from the teleprompter.

To have things so perfectly orchestrated and synchronized is no accident. I believe the big picture – if it were revealed – would make our blood run cold. The so-called Deep State is a big part of that below-the-water part of the iceberg, and we have the perfect man in the White House to pull off the covers. I believe the Mueller report is the loose thread that will lead to the unraveling of a web of lies and corruption, the likes of which have never been seen in history. I believe the broadcast media, along with Social Media and the big-screen Hollywood entertainment industry, are going to find themselves taking a long walk off a very short pier once the indictments begin to roll in.
