Attn: POTUS DJ Trump...are you ready for some football ?

There is a old saying..."The best defense is a great offense" 

Here is how I see it...right after the Nov 8 election you began the proverbial Texas Two Step~ back came out saying you no longer were interested in prosecuting Hillary Clinton... leaving your supporters with a slack jaw in disbelief .
What this did was signal to the looney left progressive DNC and MSM that you were weak and they smelled blood in the water...thus the shark feeding frenzy began...attacking you from all sides about anything and everything! 

However, it is not too late to correct this major faux pas... what you need to do now is request your AG Sessions to open a comprehensive investigation into the Obama administration,The progressive DNC, The Clintons, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch for Seditious conspiracy , under 18 U.S. Code § 2384 .
This will put you back into the game by putting you into a offensive attack thus allowing you to run the field with very little resistance as the opposition will be way too busy trying to cover their collective asses!

May I suggest replacing the current FBI Director James Comey with someone from the NY FBI field office? see:

Like the old saying goes "You can lead a horse to water...but you can't make it drink"...are you thirsty Donald...?  I have nothing more to's on your field now at the edge of the stream...The question now becomes...To drink or not to drink! Have a nice Saturday.

Fox News management have lost their minds!
oped: It was bad enough when they hired Marie Harf the Obama they have hired the Marxist/Nazi Doctor of Death! I am seriously considering dropping Fox News from my cable provider...we don't need two CNN's !

Fox News Hires Doctor With Troubling Family Connections

Fox News announced on Tuesday that it has hired Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel as a contributor to Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network.

Emanuel — brother of Democratic Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Hollywood super agent Ari Emanuel — currently serves as chair of the University of Pennsylvania's department of medical ethics and health care policy, and is vice provost for global initiatives at the university.

During the Obama administration, he served as a special adviser on health policy and helped craft the Affordable Care Act.

Emanuel is the second prominent Democrat to join Fox as a contributor this year. Last month, the channel announced it had hired former State Department spokesperson Marie Harf as a contributor.

$1 Billion Was Paid to People without a Social Security Number, and SSA Defends it!

oped: Yes indeed and Congress (Speaker Ryan et al ) blame seniors who paid into the account their entire working life 40+ years for it going bankrupt...all the while Congress et al steals from the account to pay for agenda driven kick back deals (ie: illegal  transfer of funds to Medicaid to pay for illegal alien medical well as many more other agendas)...and as for the SSA they need training  in responsible account management!

by: Tim Brown 
According to a new audit, the Social Security Administration paid $1 billion in benefits to people who don't even possess a Social Security Number (SSN).
According to the audit, which was released Friday, there were thousands of cases where the administration paid money to people who had no SSN on file.
"SSA needs to improve controls to ensure it (a) records individual representative payees’ SSNs in its payment records and (b) retains the application for representative payees who do not have an SSN," reads the report's findings.  "Based on our random sample, we estimate that 150,257 beneficiaries had an individual representative payee who had a valid SSN that SSA should have recorded on the MBR/SSR. Of these, 26,912 beneficiaries had representative payees whom, according to eRPS, SSA had terminated or not selected. From October 2004 to September 2016, SSA paid these representative payees about $853.1 million. Furthermore, unless it takes corrective action, we estimate SSA will pay these representative payees about $189.6 million in benefits annually.

"In addition, we estimate that 22,426 beneficiaries had an individual representative payee who did not have an SSN, and SSA had not followed its policy to retain the paper application," the report continues.  "These representative payees were not in eRPS. From April 2006 to September 2016, SSA paid these representative payees about $1 billion. Furthermore, unless it takes corrective action, we estimate SSA will pay these representative payees about $182.5 million in benefits annually."
Through random sampling, the Office of the Inspector General estimated that "150,257 beneficiaries had an individual representative payee who had a valid SSN that SSA should have recorded on the MBR/SSR. Of these, 26,912 beneficiaries had representative payees whom, according to eRPS, SSA had terminated or not selected. From October 2004 to September 2016, SSA paid these representative payees about $853.1 million.
The OIG estimated that the SSA will pay about $189.6 million in benefits, annually, to representative payees whom it had terminated or not selected.
The sampling also indicated that "22,426 beneficiaries had an individual representative payee who did not have an SSN, and SSA had not followed its policy to retain the paper application. These representative payees were not in eRPS. From April 2006 to September 2016, SSA paid these representative payees about $1 billion."

The OIG stressed that unless the SSA takes corrective action, they will "pay about $182.5 million in benefits, annually, to representative payees who do not have an SSN or paper application supporting their selection."
So, why did this happen?  According to the OIG report, there were three reasons.  The SSA did not:
  1. record the representative payee’s SSN on the MBR/SSR or retain a paper application supporting its selection of the representative payee and;
  2. remove terminated or non-selected representative payees from the MBR/SSR or update the information in eRPS.
  3. SSA’s systems did not always generate alerts when employees did not record a representative payee’s SSN on the MBR/SSR or when eRPS and the MBR/SSR had discrepant payee information.
Here is the results of the random sampling of 100 beneficiaries.

representatives payee's ssns not recorded on ssa's payment records
Of course, the government defended paying out benefits to noncitizens and people without a SSN, which seems blatantly outrageous.
“Representative payees play a significant role in many beneficiaries’ lives,” the SSA said. “We have approximately 5.7 million representative payees managing annual benefits for approximately 8 million beneficiaries. When appointing representative payees, we adhere to guidance in the Social Security Act (the Act).”
“Specific to this audit, the Act permits us to appoint, in certain circumstances, an undocumented alien, or applicant who resides outside the United States without a Social Security number (SSN) to serve as payee,” the agency said. “Specifically, the Act states we should verify a person’s SSN (or employer identification number) in our investigation of the payee applicant. However, the Act does not state that the applicant must have an SSN to serve as a payee.”
The “absence of an SSN is not a criterion preventing an individual from serving as payee,” the agency added.
The OIG issued the following recommendations:
  1. Take appropriate action for the 77 beneficiaries whose representative payees’ SSNs are not on the MBR/SSR, as identified by our audit.
  2. Evaluate the results of its actions for the 77 beneficiaries and determine whether it should review the remaining population of 224,164 beneficiaries we identified.
  3. Improve controls to ensure (a) it records representative payees’ SSNs on the MBR/SSR and (b) its systems generate alerts when there is a discrepancy between representative payee information in eRPS and the MBR/SSR.

Amazon takes heroic stance on 1st Amendment / Ivanka Trump

amazon logo amazon logo amazon logo amazon logo share amazon
Because of a murder trial in Arkansas, where Amazon’s Alexa was in use at the scene, the government wants access to everything that Alexa heard. Amazon is opposing this request based a very good 1st Amendment argument. Read their reasoning in this article as well as their defense against liberal complaints of Ivanka Trump’s products. 

As Written By Jack Kocsis for the Daily Caller:
Amazon has really proved itself as a hero in recent months. First, it stood with Ivanka Trump by refusing to cave to liberal demands to stop selling her products. Now, as the government demands it give up user privacy data contained on its popular Alexa devices, it has remained firm.
The Amazon Echo is one of the most popular tech devices on the planet, as it asks as a sort of home assistant willing to help with tasks as diverse as playing music, keeping grocery lists and ordering pizza. In listening to these requests, the Echo hears a lot of conversations that take place in each household. The government wants its hands on these conversations, but in a recent legal filing reported by Forbes, Amazon has put its foot down:

“At the heart of that First Amendment protection is the right to browse and purchase expressive materials anonymously, without fear of government discovery,” Amazon’s legal team wrote, later explaining that the protections for Alexa were two-fold: “The responses may contain expressive material, such as a podcast, an audiobook, or music requested by the user. Second, the response itself constitutes Amazon’s First Amendment-protected speech.”
Amazon Echo (and Echo Dot) owners can sleep safe at night, knowing that Alexa is fighting for its rights. As an Echo owner myself, I …..

Amish Farmer Faces 68 Years in Prison for Making Natural Product

Amish Farmer Faces 68 Years in Prison for Making Natural Product
oped: Yes indeed the Trump Administration needs to clean the swamp at the FDA who are in the back pocket of Big Pharma /AMA...corruption via kick backs runs amuck at he FDA  ! 

See more FDA Files:

by:Tim Brown
This is yet another reason why the Food and Drug Administration should be abolished.  A 56-year-old Amish farmer is now facing 68 years in federal prison because he made a natural health product.
Samuel Girod is the father of twelve and grandfather of 25.  He produces natural products in his own kitchen.  Since 2015, he has been facing a 12-count federal indictment.
WKYT reports:
Girod's troubles started back in 2013 when someone reported his products to the state health department in Missouri.
A federal judge in Missouri put an injunction in place, banning Girod from making some of his products until he met certain conditions. Part of those conditions were inspections of the property where Girod made his products which is where Kentucky comes into play.
Girod's makes his products on the family farm along Satterfield Lane in Bath County.

"I think everybody in the community has heard about it," said Bath County resident, Suza Moody.  "I can't even figure out what he has done wrong.  They live at the foot of the cross and the thought of one of them intentionally doing something wrong is outrageous."
"They are just devastated. I mean when they brought him out in handcuffs. It was awful," said family friend, Sally Oh.
One of his products is called Girod's Chickweed salve.  It's made with Rosemary, Beeswax, Olive Oil, Peppermint, chickweed, Eucalyptus, Lavender and Comfrey.
According to Ms. Oh, the FDS took issue with the labeling of the product. 

It said 'Chickweed Salve' up top, then on down said 'Cures Cancer,' she explained.  "Which for some people it did, but he can't say that. So he changed it to say 'Healing Chickweed,' but they said no you can't say healing. So now it just says 'Original Chickweed.'"
"I mean do you go to jail because you've messed up a label on a product?" asked Moody.  "I thought you went to jail because you did something bad. I mean he mislabeled something? I doubt he knew any better."
Girod has been making the product for over 20 years and sold it in small convenience stores.
The Lexington Herald Leader reports, "The grand jury indicted Samuel A. Girod on a dozen charges, including conspiracy, distributing misbranded drugs and threatening a witness to try to keep business documents away from the grand jury. The witness-tampering charge, the most serious, carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison."

It's also alleged that he did not register his facility with the FDA.  According to the FDA,
Dara Corrigan, associate commissioner for regulatory affairs for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and David M. Ketchmark, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced today that U.S. Marshals have seized drugs being held by Notions-n-Things Distribution of Bogard, Mo. Yesterday's seizure follows a civil forfeiture complaint that was filed in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo.  Federal marshals seized more than 1,600 containers of products that allegedly violate FDA approval and labeling requirements.

U.S. District Judge Gary A. Fenner of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri signed the seizure order on Tuesday, March 27, 2012. The seizure covered three products: Chickweed Healing Salve, allegedly marketed as a skin cancer treatment containing comfrey; To-Mor-Gone, which allegedly claims to cure cancer and other diseases; and R.E.P., which allegedly claims to cure stress headaches and sinus infections, but contains no ingredient information on its label.

FDA requested the seizure, the complaint says, because the products claim to treat or cure diseases but have not received FDA approval, and are not exempt from such approval requirements. Moreover, the complaint says, the seized products contain ingredients that could cause toxic or allergic reactions in consumers sensitive to these ingredients. According to the federal complaint, Chickweed Healing Salve contains comfrey, which may increase the risk of systemic toxicity, and To-More-Gone contains bloodroot, a caustic, corrosive substance that produces a thick scar that can mask tumor recurrence. In addition, the seized products are “misbranded” under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.

Dara A. Corrigan, associate commissioner for regulatory affairs, said, "“Two important protections for the public are that a firm may not sell new drugs unless they have been tested and approved by FDA and a firm may not make false or unsubstantiated claims about drugs they sell.  When a firm disregards these protections, it not only violates the law but also creates a risk for consumers, who may rely on a bogus product and forego effective and proven treatment. FDA must and will take aggressive enforcement action.”
Oh, you mean like the FDA's approval of this $7,800-a-month alleged lung cancer drug, which caused rashes and rarely worked?  Yeah, I understand completely now.
No one was injured or harmed by Girod's product.  In fact, many people testify that they were helped by it.  Fine.  I ask the FDA how many drugs they approve that have tremendous side effects, including death, but they are just fine approving it, as long as it's on the label.  How does that actually protect anyone?
The FDA should be abolished right along with the other unconstitutional agencies of the central government and Mr. Girod should be freed to live his life and make his product.  No crime was committed.  If someone believes that he committed fraud against them, that is what the courts are for and restitution could be made.  However, sending this man to prison is not justice, it's hypocrisy when the FDA is allowed to basically engage in far worse behavior. Buyer beware, I say.

What Will It Take for Conservatives to Boycott CPAC?

by: Tim Brown

I have often wondered what it would take for conservatives to boycott the Conservative Political Action Conference.  This year, the conference has chosen to invite flaming homosexual, apparent pedophile promoter, and Breitbart senior editor Milo Yiannopoulos to speak.  When are conservatives going to have enough fo the CPAC?
Over the weekend, it was announced that Yiannopoulos would be a featured speaker at CPAC.  Immediately, there was outrage that he would even be considered, especially after a tape was leaked showing his apparent promotion of pedophilia.

In the leaked tape, Yiannopoulos can be heard speaking about man-boy lust.

“We get hung up on this sort of child abuse stuff to the point where we are heavily policing consensual adults.
“In the homosexual world, particularly, some of those relationships between younger boys and older men — the sort of ‘coming of age’ relationship — those relationships in which those older men help those young boys discover who they are and give them security and safety and provide them with love and a reliable, sort of rock, where they can’t speak to their parents.” (Emphasis mine.)
Yiannopoulos also discussed his sexual relationship with a Catholic priest at age 14 during a 2015 interview with Joe Rogan, in which he claims to be happy about the fact that the priest awakened him sexually, even though it was a violation of the law.  He also claimed that he would not perform fellatio so well if it was not for this priest.  Sick!
But those that engage in sodomy and molestation are lawbreakers anyway.

CNN's Jake Tapper took to Twitter to blast CPAC's decision following the release of the tape.

Was planning on ignoring for the most part, for those saying "stop publicizing him." But friend reached out & pled w me to say something 
— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) February 20, 2017
Yes, I completely agree with Mr. Tapper's comments.  His tweets were followed up by American Conservative Union board member Ned Ryun.
Still, many are planning to attend CPAC just like always even though they express their outrage for Milo being invited.  Why?  Yes, many conservatives speak out about this, but they will gladly attend, tolerate and even listen to this man who is at war with God, and in case you didn't know it, at war with conservatives, America, America's founders and the law.
Seriously, does this look conservative to you?
Conservatives have tolerated Grover Norquist's sympathies towards Islam, and the subsequent ban of people like Pamela Geller from exposing the truth about Islam and jihad.  Sadly, Pamela has supported the homosexual community, as well.
Pro-homosexual group, the Log Cabin Republicans, were given booth space several years ago by CPAC., CPAC then caved to the homosexual lobby by allowing the LCR to be a full-fledged sponsor in 2016. And now as the capstone to its dalliance with sexual deviancy, CPAC is giving us Milo.

President Donald Trump is scheduled to speak, as well as Vice President Mike Pence.  Trump has allowed Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah's illegal Executive Order to stand with regard to the "unconstitutional rights" of homosexuals.  Additionally, Yiannopoulo will be given more time to speak that Vice President Pence.
The question I have for conservatives is, if he is not pulled from speaking, why do you not boycott the event?  You have spoken out against the homosexual agenda during the usurpation of Obama.  Why will you not take a stand with more than your voice at an event that claims to hold your values?
The more this is tolerated, the more the conservatives will fail to speak out on the very issues that make Milo what he is, and eventually, they'll embrace those issues and more.  Mark my words.

UPDATE:  Seems Milo was disinvited, but not because he's a flaming homosexual.  Nope, it's because he endorsed pedophilia, which I might add was homosexual in nature. 

Just How Gay Will Trump/Pence Get?

Judge:  Clergy Free to “Treat” or Counsel against Homosexuality 
by:Scott Buss 
There’s a whole lotta gay news coming out of Trumpworld these days.
As in pro-gay.
As in pro-“let’s obliterate the meaning of terms like family, marriage, husband, wife, and even gender itself and pretend it’ll all somehow work out in the long run as long as we have better jobs, more money, bigger houses and more stuff”.
Oh and “a bigger military”. Can’t forget that.
How else are we supposed to enforce our moral superiority all over God’s green earth?
This money over truth trade-off is a core component of the “Make America Great Again” worldview that now dominates the Pagan Political Right, which these days includes most politically active “conservative Christians” in the land.
So “conservative Christian”, as a label, isn’t worth much these days. As a term, it’s less and less associated with anything solid and good.

Kind of like family, marriage, husband, wife and gender.
Or liberty, privacy, freedom, and truth.
These days, each and every term for a solid, good thing seems to be losing its coherence, and therefore its ability to positively shape the culture, at an increasingly rapid pace.
This is anything but accidental.
This has long been the plan and purpose of the System of systems under which we now live.

Even so, it can be particularly sad and frustrating to watch supposed conservative Christian types cheer and enable the continued march of the culture into the insanity of postmodern sexuality and the utter chaos and cultural implosion that inevitably follows in its wake, which is precisely what we have here in the early days of the Trump/Pence chapter of American history.
From Vice President Pence’s apparent caving toward a pro-LGBTQRSTD worldview to President Trump’s own re-re-reaffirmation of a pro-LGTBQRSTD worldview, we’re getting a pretty good sense of just how gay the next eight years are gonna be (assuming God allows the US to go on that long), at least in and around DC and with those who insist on maintaining a DC-centric approach to things.
Throw in the emergence of Milo Yiannopoulos, a stark raving pagan homosexual who’s blossomed into the oft defended darling of those passing for conservatives these days, and the trajectory is both dramatic and clear. (For more on this flamboyant/pathetic trend, please check out related articles we’ve posted in recent months, including: Gay Old Party: How The GOP Is Trading Christians For Homosexuals, Conservatives Champion Trump As “Most Pro-Gay Candidate In American Electoral History”, America’s Growing Appetite For Gay Conservatism, and Anti-Christ American Conservatism: It’s All The Rage.)

The early signs of Trump/Pence era gayness for America came days after the inauguration. As The Washington Post reported in late January:
The White House is pledging to keep the Obama administration protections extended to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workers, a statement said, apparently responding to reports that the orders would be reversed.
“President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of L.G.B.T.Q. rights, just as he was throughout the election,” the White House said in a statement early Tuesday. “The president is proud to have been the first ever G.O.P. nominee to mention the L.G.B.T.Q. community in his nomination acceptance speech, pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression.”

“L.G.B.T.Q. rights”?
From whom exactly?
Oh, that’s right…the State.
Because the American State creates rights, of course.
Like the “right” to openly worship false gods.
And the “right” to murder babies for convenience.
And the “right” to produce, market, and consume porn.
And any number of other explicitly anti-Christian “rights” in America.
Anyway, without exploring those “rights” again in detail (something we do here regularly as a wake-up call and reminder), let’s move on into Vice President Pence’s apparent green lighting of Trump’s suicidally stupid embrace of the LGBTQRSTD movement.

Doug Wilson did a great job of addressing Pence’s apparent collapse in An Open Letter to the Vice-President of the United States, which opened as follows:
“Mr. Vice-President,
I am writing you as one who has appreciated your work, and as one who has been most grateful for your presence and influence in the new administration. Your impact has not gone unnoticed, and we thank God for you. I am extraordinarily mindful of what you did in appearing to speak at the pro-life march. I have thanked God for you. We have prayed for you.
At the same time, there has also been obvious influence in the other direction, and so I wanted to take this opportunity address you in my capacity as a minister of the Lord Jesus Christ. I know that you are a believer, and that you respect the authority of the holy Scriptures. I am appealing to those Scriptures, and come to you as a fellow servant of those Scriptures. I know, in fact, that we agree on this common ground.

I saw that you recently defended the president’s approach to LGBTQ issues, in his extension of President Obama’s executive order on LGBT rights. In the past you have said that you are a Christian first, a conservative second and a Republican third, in that order. In the past you have recognized that “societal collapse was always brought about following an advent of the deterioration of marriage and family.” But just recently, in this interview with George Stephanopoulos, you said that you applauded the president’s continued inclusion of the “LGBT community” in this way.  You further said that there is no room in a patriot’s heart for prejudice. This is problematic in many ways . . .”
I highly recommend taking the time to read all of Wilson’s article, which you can find by clicking here. After making many good points, he draws to a close with powerful words of warning (with bold emphasis added):
” . . . So in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, here is the admonition. You know better. I know that you know better. I watched you interviewed about Bradley Manning, and admired how you made a point of referring to him as Private Manning over and over again, doing so in order to avoid honoring him with the name of Chelsea or the pronoun her. That was well done. You were walking carefully, but without compromise. What you were doing was obvious, but not obnoxious or provocative.

But you have now begun to do the one thing that you may not do. You may not defend corruption. You may be around it—in fact, you must be around it. This is what God has called you to. But you may not, as Jesus reigns, start strewing aromatic flowers over the cesspool. You may not start talking as though tolerance of sexual perversion were diversity. You must not act as though believing Christians really are homophobic and need to get over their “prejudice.” That narrative is the central lie—Seneca Falls, Selma, Stonewall—and the language you used in the interview with Stephanopoulos was a badly handled accommodation to that narrative. But the narrative is false, and further, you know that it is false. Return to an honest and winsome statement of your own convictions.
When this kind of thing comes up again—as it will, probably next week—you need to have an honest response ready. This response needs to be respectful of the president, but it must not maneuver you into calling good evil and evil good (Is 5:20).
I really believe that you want to help make America great again. But mainstreaming sexual deviance is not the way that happens. That is how we become one with Nineveh and Tyre.”

Do we understand Nineveh?
Do we understand Tyre?
Do we understand that when we avoid repentance and double down on pride, we’re in serious trouble?
In such a scenario, we’re not on the verge of greatness.
We’re on the verge of death.
Do we understand that when we put our faith in the almighty American State as the author and guarantor of things like the “right” to abortion, the “right” to “gay marriage”, and the “right” to openly worship of false gods, we’re pretty much done?
The LGTBQ movement is at this very moment rolling like a hot pink knife through butter made warm by generations of Americanized religion masquerading as Christianity.
This is the religion that Mike Pence is modeling now. 

Please pray for his conviction, repentance, and restoration so that he might, by God’s grace, find the courage to stand on this critical issue at this critical moment.
We need men who will stand.
Right now.

‘Allahu Akbar’ Becomes A Rallying Call As Leftists Join Forces With Radical Muslims To Fight Trump All Across America


by:Michael Snyder
An “unholy alliance” between anti-Trump leftists and radical Muslims is beginning to emerge all over America. President Trump’s recent executive order that restricted immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries is bringing a very strange mixture of people out to street protests. On the one hand you have hardcore Muslims that are chanting “Allahu Akbar” and that believe that Islamic law will someday prevail over the U.S. Constitution, and on the other hand you have radical leftists marching right next to them that are protesting for “women’s rights”, “gay rights” and “civil rights”. The ironic thing about all of this is that if the radical Muslims have their way, the leftists will either convert to Islam someday or will be completely destroyed. But for now they need one another, and so a very odd marriage of convenience has taken place.

Later on in this article I want to discuss the very unusual “I Am Muslim Too” protest that just took place in Times Square in New York City, but first I want to talk about what happened when the Nation of Islam held their annual meeting in Detroit over the weekend. It is being reported that thousands of people in the audience were enthusiastically chanting “Allahu Akbar” as Louis Farrakhan made his way to the stage, and Farrakhan made it abundantly clear to those assembled that he plans to oppose Trump every step of the way
“I’m here to talk to all of you who are shaking in your boots” over Trump being president, Farrakhan said. Imitating a person who’s worried about Trump, Farrakhan said: “What are we going to do, the president is bad. He’s the president and he don’t like black people. He don’t like Mexicans. He don’t like Muslims.”

Farrakhan then said: “Maybe so. Who cares? We don’t give a damn what he likes or what he doesn’t like.
“Have no fear … the future is ours. Time for the liberation of our people.”
Perhaps it is not much of a surprise for thunderous chants of “Allahu Akbar” to be heard at a Nation of Islam conference, but you definitely wouldn’t expect to hear the same thing in Times Square in New York City.
But that is precisely what happened on Sunday. According to the Daily Caller, an Islamic call to prayer during the “I Am Muslim Too” protest included the familiar phrase…

Sunday’s anti-Trump rally in New York City featured a Muslim “Allahu Akbar” call to prayer and comparisons between President Trump and Adolf Hitler.
Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons organized the protest meant to declare “Today, I am a Muslim, too,” and protest Trump’s travel ban on some majority-Muslim countries.

Simmons said in an open letter, “My friends, both Muslims and Jews, are saying there are so many comparisons between your rap and Hitler’s, and I cannot disagree with them, Donald.”
This protest attracted a large number of non-Muslim leftists, and when the Muslim call to prayer began the entire crowd became very, very quiet. If you have not seen footage of this yet, you can find it on YouTube right here

On the one hand you can understand that they were trying to be respectful, but on the other hand one can’t help but imagine how the leftists would have responded if Christian prayers had started to come through the loudspeakers.
This protest was just the latest example of how the radical left and radical Muslims are coming together for a common purpose even though their worldviews are diametrically opposed to one another. In Islam, a separation between religion and government in unthinkable, and so ultimately you would think that for leftists radical Islam would be considered to be their worst nightmare. But instead, many of them embrace radical Islam because they think that it makes them look “tolerant”. The following comes from Paul Joseph Watson

The clip shows left-wing protesters in hushed reverence as they listen to the call to prayer in Times Square while some hold up images of artist Shepard Fairey’s design of a woman in an American flag hijab.
“Allahu Akbar” means “God is great” or “Allah is greater” in Arabic, but it’s better known to westerners as a slogan routinely shouted by jihadists as they massacre innocent people during terrorist attacks.
The event included a speech by Linda Sansour, a Muslim activist and Hamas sympathizer who advocates for Sharia law – a brutal Islamist doctrine that completely disenfranchises women.

This is a pattern that we have seen for quite some time now. A month ago at the inauguration of Trump, some of the protesters were reportedly displaying ISIS flags and beheading videos in an attempt to freak out Trump supporters.
The radical left and radical Islamists are proudly working together right now because they have a common enemy in Donald Trump.
But would the radical left actually want sharia law to be introduced in this country?
Unfortunately, many among the radical left are completely uneducated about Islam and sharia law. In this very disturbing YouTube video by Mark Dice, a number of leftists actually indicate that they would be in favor of sharia law being implemented even though they appear to have no understanding of what that would actually mean…

When you watch videos like that one, it is easy to wonder what the future of our nation is going to look like with a public that is so incredibly uninformed.
If you ever have any doubts about how evil radical Islam truly is, just sit down and listen to author Brigitte Gabriel for about five minutes. She goes around the country telling people how radical Islam absolutely destroyed her home country of Lebanon. Decades ago Lebanon was one of the most peaceful, stable and prosperous nations in the entire Middle East, but then the radical Islamists moved in and turned it into a war-torn hellhole.
And the truth is that this happens wherever the radical Islamists go. Just look at Sweden. At one time Sweden had one of the lowest crime rates in Europe, but now rioting and looting are breaking out everywhere and Malmo has become the most dangerous city in all of western Europe.
So the radical left may want to be very careful, because the people that they are cozying up to right now believe that someday they are going to be able to completely destroy our way of life.

“The End Goal Is To Destroy The Constitution and Subvert The Country” – How Secretive Non-Profit Organizations Erode The United States


One of the biggest problems facing this nation is the amount of money that has been “sequestered,” to term it, for “Non-Profit Organizations,” or “NPO’s.”  Why?  They present a problem when they can be used by an unscrupulous individual or groups of unscrupulous individuals (for examples, a George Soros, or the Democratic Party respectively).  What is an NPO?  Let’s look at what they are and see if the definition is characterized by actual NPO actions.
Here is an excerpt from a book that describes NPO’s (what they should be):
“The main financial difference between a for-profit and a not-for-profit enterprise is what happens to the profit.  In a for-profit company like Ford or Microsoft or Disney or your favorite fast-food establishment, profits are paid to the owners, including shareholders.  But a nonprofit can’t do that.  Any profit remaining after the bills are paid has to be plowed back into the organization’s service program.  So profit can’t be distributed to individuals, such as the organization’s board of directors, who are volunteers in every sense of the word.”
Nonprofit Kit for Dummies,” ISBN: 0-7645-5347-X, pg. 8

Austere and stoic, these NPO’s, all!  Ahh, but what is conveniently left out is the salary portion…for the directors.  Those salaries are written off as an operating expense by the “Non-Profit,” but they’re hardly the funds gleaned by a “simple volunteer for the beneficent NPO.”  Another paragraph from the book shows this:
…for the most part, we’re talking about an organization that the Internal Revenue Service has classified as a 501(c)(3).  They receive exemption from federal income taxes and sometimes relief from property taxes at the local level.  Nonprofit organizations classified as 501(c)(3) receive extra privileges under the law.  They are, with minor exceptions, the only group of tax-exempt organizations that can receive tax-deductible contributions from individuals and organizations.
Being a nonprofit organization does not mean that an entity is exempt from paying all taxes.  Nonprofit organizations pay employment taxes just like for-profit businesses do.  In some states, but not all, nonprofits are exempt from paying sales tax…”
Ibid., p. 9
So, we have some of the basic parameters here for NPO’s.  We’re not going to delve into the different types, such as politically-organized, or the religious-type of NPO’s.  I draw the reader’s attention to the simple fact that (as mentioned in the last paragraph) the NPO’s “pay employment taxes just like for-profit businesses do.”  How wonderfully utopian and egalitarian that sounds, all under the “color of law!” The reality is far from it.  Directors of NPO’s make six-figure salaries, and all their “bennies” (that’s benefits, not Benzedrine…well, we hope!) are little perks they take and write off as the almighty “operating expense.”
They can’t very well wear down their cars driving back and forth to the NPO-location, or conducting NPO business, can they?  What they do have, as attested by the “pay employment taxes” phrase is a willing army of misfortunates they pay little more than enough to obtain dog food and perhaps live out of their car (if they have one) …this is where the “payroll taxes” originate.  A place such as a Thrift-Store “chain” (they differ from local area to area) employs people at minimum wage and keeps them at under full-time hours to deny them any benefits with little more than “sweat shop” conditions, and the management and the directors, of course, make the salaries.

The government turns a blind eye to all of it, because there are still taxes to be generated from payroll taxes withheld: The Rube Goldberg perpetual taxation machine/hamster wheel.  There are also “handout” programs that run hand-in-hand between government and NPO’s, such as tax breaks for the NPO’s for hiring veterans, or the mentally handicapped, as well as any “reformed” alcoholics, drug addicts, or criminals placed within the “program” by the state or local government.  In this manner, the directorate “pads” their salaries and steals more by justifying it through the omnipotent “operating expenses” category.
The original purpose for NPO’s was to provide some worthwhile service for the community (such as restoration of public buildings, or helping victims of natural disasters, or with education.  They had to do with true community service and volunteer effort in a manner that would harness resources and enable people and communities to eliminate bureaucracy from action.  In addition, a semi “self-supportive” organization would be formed…not to rake in the millions, but to accomplish projects outside of the normal business spectrum.

NPO’s were also for protecting religious institutions…certainly not for shielding the “mega-hucksters” raking in hundreds of millions of dollars a year and being chauffeured back and forth from mega-churches to their Lear jets, a full complement of armed bodyguards throwing rose-petals along the way.  The NPO’s in this case were intended for a church/synagogue/religious institution to stay solvent, untaxed, and unharassed by government in what they garnered for their attendees in funds, resources, and property.  The 501(c)(3) was not to germinate “Wolves of Wall Street” in sheep’s clothing preying on their congregants financially.  The NPO was not designed to insulate these Wolves and exempt them from obligations (financial or otherwise) to a government that still extracts payroll taxes for anyone working for the Wolves…in a 9-5 “job” for the religious institution.
The largest “gray area” is with alleged civil rights and civil liberties NPO’s, that strive for “government policy reform,” or “citizen participation groups.”  They wish to overthrow the existing system and society, camouflaging their true beliefs beneath the protective “veil” of “Public/Societal Benefit” for the establishment of the 501(c)(3). 

Enter Soros, the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, and all these other Communists who hide their “contributions” and utilize their resources [Their “right” to do so protected under the Constitution, mind you] toward overthrowing the Constitution and the society.  These NPO’s are not limited to operation domestically, but can operate in foreign countries…under the “friendly international relations” shield, as they develop Marxist cadre and supporters in other countries they also want to see overthrown.
Recently an article came out entitled Indivisible, with Ties to George Soros, Sows Division Against Trump, GOP Lawmakers, by Fred Lucas.  This article presents the perfect example of Communist agitators hiding behind the NPO shield; these agitators are not yet registered as an NPO, but they plan on it.  Here are some excerpts: 

They call their group Indivisible Guide, a name that came from an actual guide posted online telling activists how to pressure members of Congress. Among topics: what to say when going to town halls and calling or visiting a member’s office. Leaders of the organization have loose ties to George Soros, the billionaire hedge fund manager who bankrolls liberal causes, according to the Capital Research Center, a conservative think tank that investigates nonprofits.
“Indivisible is ultra-slick leftist astroturf activism at its finest,” Matthew Vadum, senior vice president at the Capital Research Center, told The Daily Signal in an email. “At least three of the group’s five principals—Ezra Levin, Leah Greenberg, and Angel Padilla—have ties to organizations funded by George Soros. Indivisible is apparently not yet a nonprofit, but plans are in the works to register it as a nonprofit.” 

According to Vadum’s research:
Ezra Levin, a former staffer for Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas, and his wife, Leah Greenberg, are the president and vice president of the Indivisible Guide’s board, respectively.  Levin is also associate director of the Corporation for Enterprise Development, an anti-poverty nonprofit. Melissa Bradley, who sits on that group’s board, previously worked for Green for All, a group founded by liberal commentator and former Obama administration official Van Jones. She was appointed as a Soros Justice Fellow through the Open Society Foundations, which Soros founded.  Greenberg previously worked for Humanity United, which is funded by Soros’s Open Society Institute.
The secretary of Indivisible Guide, Angel Padilla, works for the National Immigration Law Center, which is funded by Soros through his Open Society Foundations. And treasurer Matt Traidi is the research team director for the Service Employees International Union, a major donor to and endorser of Democrat politicians, Capital Research Center notes. 

Soros has been responsible for actively toppling more than half a dozen different governments.  We are not addressing all the evils of NPO’s, however, all of these “Grand Wizards” who term themselves “board members” or “directors” all operate straight out of Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”  They are all “organizing the organized,” in that they take an organization (either existing or one that they’ve created), and use the organization’s framework and legal status (in this case the 501(c)(3) shield-format) to develop their minions and cadre, and march them in the direction toward their end goals.  In the meantime, they turn a tidy profit for themselves, enjoy “favored” status by politicos and other enablers, and continue growing an organization.
In the end, the little minions on the sweatshop floors do not even understand what their function is.  They’re just working day-by-day, exploited in the usual manner, and also exploited for their numbers and support unknowingly in a game that is designed to overthrow the existing social, cultural, political, and religious normative practices of our society.  The end goal is to destroy the Constitution and subvert the country.  Are all NPO’s this way? No, certainly not.  But the majority are, and this is one of the things that needs to be addressed by the current administration and Congress, brought to light by We the People…to keep Soros and his ilk from taking us in the direction that other countries have been taken…and at taxpayer expense, with the 501(c)(3) as their shield.

Exclusive: Russian Bank Docs Show How Putin Laundered Money to Hillary & Podesta

Exclusive: Russian Bank Docs Show How Putin Laundered Money to Hillary & Podesta

by: Jerome R. Corsi 
Now we know why Clinton & Co. were so desperate to frame Trump with ties to Putin

Today Infowars investigative journalist Jerome Corsi met with former vice-head of Armed Services Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee, Curt Weldon, to discuss his committees’ deep research into the Clinton technology transfers to Russia in exchange for Clinton Foundation donations.  Weldon validated much that is presented in the following article, which is part one of a series of investigative articles coming out over the upcoming week based on intel by Weldon and other sources:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congress may want to examine concrete evidence showing Russian President Vladimir Putin paying Hillary Clinton and John Podesta for a long time before the mainstream media goes even more overboard trying to fabricate a tie between Putin and President Donald Trump. 

The money trail hunt begins with a document Infowars has obtained from the Russian Central Bank “Registry of Significant Control,” known generally as the “RSC Registry.”
This document traces the ownership of Metcombank, a relatively small Russian-domiciled bank located in the Russian Ural Mountains, to ownership by Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian billionaire with close ties to Putin.
As we shall see this document provides evidence of the circuitous path the Russian government has been using since Hillary Clinton was secretary of state to make large financial payments to John Podesta and to the Clinton Foundation.

Be sure to keep referring to this document to cross-check as you continue reading the article below.
As the RSC Registry makes clear, Vekselberg has been paying Clinton and Podesta through a complicated money laundering scheme involving Metcombank in Russia, with payments tracing back to the Renova Group, a Russian-based energy and investment international conglomerate also owned by Vekselberg.

A March 1, 2013 article from Russian media in which Vekselberg confirmed the questionable bank deposits. 

The funds rediverted to Clinton and Podesta through the Renova Group and Metcombank originate in large part from Rusnano — a state-owned investment fund owned by the Russian government. Conveniently, Vekselberg is a board member for Renova
A NYT article from April 23, 2015 revealing how Clinton made military transfers to Russia.

The entire scheme involves a Netherlands-listed private company that plays prominently into the international money laundering the Russian government has been conducting through offshore entities in the Cayman Islands, as documented by the Panama Papers.Money laundering schemes created by professional criminals are typically complicated.  To begin understanding the RSC registry on Metcombank, note that the bottom box on the chart (second page) makes clear that Vekselberg effectively owns 100 percent of Metcombank.

First, the simple part.
Metcombank appears to be the bank Vekselberg has used to make transfers to the Clinton Foundation, with the money flowing first through the Moscow branch of Metcombank, and from there into Deutsche Bank and Trust Company Americas in New York City, finally ending up in a private bank account in the Bank of America that is operated by the Clinton Foundation.

How Putin paid Podesta is more complicated.
John Podesta, the campaign chairman of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential run. Podesta has deep ties to Russia despite blaming President Trump of the same.
The complication begins when we examine the RSC Registry and realize that Vekselberg owns Metcombank through a series of intermediary companies, starting with the Renova Group, a Russian corporate conglomerate with interests in oil, energy, and telecommunication that lists Vekselberg as chairman of the board.

The Renova Group owns and operates Renova Assets Ltd., a private investment company headquartered in the Bahamas for which Bloomberg lists no key executives, board members, or members of the executive committee.
Conveniently, Vekselberg also has ties to Rusnano, the Russian State Investment Fund, via his ownership and management of the Renova Group in Russia.
In 2011, Vekselberg directed Rusnano to make a $35 million investment into Joule Unlimited, a small Massachusetts-based energy company, owned by Joule Global Holdings, N.V., in the Netherlands, with Joule Global Stichting, the ultimate controlling entity.

The Rusnano investment into Joule Unlimited was made when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spearheaded the transfer of U.S. advanced technology to Russia, some with military uses, as part of her “reset” strategy with the country.

As previously reported, in the summer of 2011, while he was advising then-Secretary Clinton on State Department policy, John Podesta joined the board of three Joule entities: Joule Unlimited, a small Massachusetts-based energy company; its holding company, Joule Global Holdings, N.V., which was based in the Netherlands; and Joule Global Stichting, which appears to be the ultimate controlling entity.
Podesta, it turns out, has been paid an undisclosed amount, starting in 2011, for serving on the executive board of Joule Unlimited that he neglected to report to regulatory authorities in the U.S., as well consulting fees from the Wyss Foundation, a group controlled by Swiss billionaire Hansjörg Wyss, an investor in Joule Energy.

In an Aug. 2016 report entitled “From Russia with Money,” the Government Accountability Institute noted that Podesta consulted for a foundation run by one of the investors in Joule Energy, Hansjörg Wyss, who in turn was a major Clinton Foundation donor.
Podesta was evidently paid $87,000 by the Wyss Foundation in 2013, according to federal tax records.
The GAI report also documented the Wyss Charitable Foundation has given between $1 million to $5 million to the Clinton Foundation.
Joule Global Stichting was established in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on March 14, 2011.

John Podesta joined the Joule Global Stichting’s executive board on June 25, 2011. The Joule Global Stichting is a foundation, but it’s not strictly a foundation in the charitable sense.
A foundation of this type, a Dutch stichting, is a popular means for reducing one’s tax burden, as noted on the website of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which is at the heart of the Panama Papers investigation into offshore banking and money-laundering operations as archived and released by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists.

The Government Accountability Institute concluded that although Podesta is listed on the corporate records, he failed to disclose his membership on the board of Joule Global Stichting in his federal financial disclosure forms when he joined the Obama White House as a senior advisor.
To complete the circle, Vekselberg, the Renova Group, the Skolkovo Foundation, and Hansjörg Wyss all have ties to the Clinton Foundation, either as substantial donors or as participants in the Clinton Global Initiative.
Joule Global Stichting and Joule Global Holdings, N.V., also figure prominently as a client of Mossack Fonseca.

MCCAIN IS OVER! What Just Leaked About John McCain And Russia Has Trump Grinning From Cheek to Cheek!

John McCain and his ties to Russia keep on getting more bizarre. Sen. John McCain was a presidential candidate in 2008 and asked Vitaly Churkin, a Russian ambassador to the U.N., to donate to his campaign, according to Wikileaks.
Fast forward to 2016 and John McCain is now accusing Russia of hacking and meddling in U.S. politics. Even though, McCain solicited Russia to interfere in the 2008 campaign by asking for money.
What makes it even more bizarre is that Ambassador Churkin died suddenly on Monday. According to NBC News, his death is suspicious.

Supposedly, the Russian government sent this letter out to John McCain at the time:
"We have received a letter from Senator John McCain requesting financial contribution to his Presidential campaign"

“In this connection we would like to reiterate that Russian officials, the Permanent Mission of the Russian Federation to the United Nations or the Russian Government do not finance political activity in foreign countries.”

The above letter has been verified by Wikileaks, but what does this mean for John McCain? It means that he is a treacherous liar and does not work for the American people.
John McCain is songbird and we need to get this RINO kicked out of office! #SHARE this article 1 million times if you are tired of John McCain's lies !

The only people that John McCain has helped out are the Democrats. (h/t Wikileaks)

Trump Vindicated: Migrant No-Go Zone in Sweden Burns As Rioters Loot Stores and Assault Cops

Over the weekend, President Trump caught flak from the liberal press for a comment he made during a speech last Saturday. Regarding Europe’s loose immigration laws he said that:
“We’ve got to keep our country safe. You look at what’s happening in Germany. You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible. You look at what’s happening in Brussels. You look at what’s happening all over the world. Take a look at Nice. Take a look at Paris.”
That mention of “what’s happening last night in Sweden” made it sound like he was referring to a specific incident. The liberal press jumped on it, in the hopes that they had caught Trump talking about a terrorist attack that hadn’t happened. They were hoping for a repeat of Kellyanne Conway’s “Bowling Green Massacre” comment.
In truth, Trump simply misspoke. He was referring to a report he saw the night before on Fox News, that discussed the conditions in Sweden after that country opened their borders to migrants from Syria and other Middle-Eastern countries. He wasn’t talking about a specific incident at all.

Nonetheless, it only took a few days for a specific incident to emerge in Sweden that vindicated his comment.
That is the Swedish suburb of Rinkeby, a district of Stockholm that is noted for having one of the highest concentrations of immigrants in the country. Nearly 90% of the residents are either first or second generation immigrants. After the police tried to arrest an unnamed person for a drug related crime, an estimated 30-50 people rioted. They proceeded to set cars on fire and loot local stores. A photographer for a newspaper, multiple civilians (who were trying to calm down the rioters), and several police officers were assaulted during the riot. Order wasn’t completely restored until midnight on Monday.
And this isn’t the first time that this kind of thing has happened. A 60 Minutes cameraman, producer, and news correspondent from Australia were assaulted in Rinkeby last year, and a similar riot occurred in 2010, involving over a 100 youths who attacked the local police station.
This is what happens when you open your borders to hundreds of thousands of people who hate you and your culture. I know, sounds obvious, but apparently that needs to be said.

“Ouch”: You Won’t Believe What Juanita Broaddrick Tweeted to Chelsea Clinton About Her Father

The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on SHTF Plan  

Lest you thought the parading around of Bill Clinton’s accusers and alleged rape victims was nothing more than an election stunt, check out this series of Tweets that has once again stirred the pot.
It seems that Juanita Broaddrick is not the least bit prepared to let it go – since she remains a victim who is outraged that her alleged perpetrator remains free and highly distinguished in world affairs.
The assumption is that they are above the law, but they certainly aren’t above a Twitter spanking:
Unsurprisingly, @ChelseaClinton’s original tweet was apparently deleted from her feed – but not before being screen captured and embedded:

Apparently, Chelsea is not interested in delving into that topic, or defending the actions of her parents besides a surface level endorsement of them.
Some people reacted by blasting Broaddrick for ‘disparaging people’s children’ – a comment that she laughingly dismissed by pointing out that Chelsea is now 36 years old – and older than Broaddrick was at the time of her rape:
A predictable Twitter storm has erupted – since Tweeting & deleting is always more conspicuous, and the fallout has begun:

It is quite obvious that many people would prefer to see the Clinton’s leave politics altogether – not only their opponents on the right, but also the millions of leftists who witnessed the Democratic party taken over during the round, only to put up a candidate who is mired in controversy and scandal, and lacked the energy to carry on a full campaign.
Instead, Hillary is threatening a 2020 run (even if it is utterly absurd), and Chelsea is being groomed to be an irrelevant dynasty heir or media pawn.

US District,Appeal and SCOTUS are abusing their authority! 
 First and foremost Judges have absolutely no authority to legislate from the bench... under the US Constitution Bill of Rights their only job is to make sure the US Constitution/Bill of Rights are followed in reference to Laws, rules and regulations imposed by congress. It is not I repeat not their job to interpret the US Constitution/Bill of Rights but to follow it as it is written in simple and plain terms by our founders and written so anyone with a eighth grade education can understand!

Furthermore under the Bill of Rights the 2nd Amendment states the right to bear does not say nor state the type of only single shot, muzzle loaded, black powder muskets...which were the weapon of the day when the amendment was written. Our founders were intelligent and realized that as we progressed over the centuries new and innovative weapons would be developed as well as all forms of transportation,medical treatments etc.

Therefore the courts are abusing their authority and are legislating from the bench ...thus violating the US Constitution/Bill of Rights as written!
To put it in simple terms...under their oxymoron decision this would mean that all modern forms of arms, transportation ,medicine etc are limited to what was available in the1700's ie: Horse and buggy,steam engine trains and vessels as well as barbaric medical treatment such as bleeding out to address infections etc!
Either Progressive judges are really dumbed down by the progressive school systems of today ie: lack of reading comprehension...or they are violating the sedition conspiracy law {18 U.S. Code § 2384 } attempting to destroy the US Constitution/Bill of Rights and our Republic form of government... either way they should be impeached, prosecuted and removed from office!

Federal Appeals Court Upholds Ban of ‘Assault Weapons’
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland’s ban on 45 kinds of assault weapons and its 10-round limit on gun magazines were upheld Tuesday by a federal appeals court in a decision that met with a strongly worded dissent.

McCain pranked into National Security chat with fake Ukrainian Prime Minister 

Now we know why Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was so eager to believe the cooked-up dossier on Russia, Wikileaks and President Donald Trump that was eventually published and discredited by Buzzfeed, because he will apparently believe anything.
Gateway Pundit reports an early February bizarre, recorded conversation with Russian comedians Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexei Stoliarov — known as Vovan and Lexus — posing as Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman in a prank phone call, wherein what sounds a whole lot like McCain’s voice discussed key national security issues on U.S. policy towards Ukraine and Russia. 

A request for comment to McCain’s office on Feb. 17 was not returned.
In the conversation McCain apparently conveyed that “it’s important for us to provide lethal defensive weapons to your country and do it immediately,” previewing a Feb. 2 letter to President Donald Trump and statement he was ready to put out urging the administration to arm Kiev. The U.S. arming Ukraine would mark a dramatic escalation of the civil war there and of U.S. involvement in that region.
McCain also advised Ukraine to push for entering NATO, saying, “If I were you I would just restate our desire to be a member of NATO and let’s see what happens in the next few months.”
McCain even discussed which sanctions he was planning on pursuing legislatively on Ukraine’s behalf: “I think it’s against advisers and companies that engage in these activities, but our first challenge is to make sure that the existing sanctions are not lifted.”

But McCain was unsure specifically who would be sanctioned but offered to pass along that information to Groysman to be previewed: “We haven’t gotten that far yet. Probably it was sanctions against their commercial activities and other financial institutions, but I can get that to you. I thank you, sir, and I look forward to seeing you. We’ll win this fight, we’ll win.”
This is not the first time McCain has promised to offer assistance to Ukraine. McCain and his colleague Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) recently traveled to Ukraine, promising arms and equipment in a New Year’s celebration with Ukrainian troops that was filmed, saying, “I am convinced you will win. We will do everything we can to provide you with what you need to win.”
The security risk McCain apparently now poses is almost unbelievable, but here we are. It is not at all obviated by the fact that McCain and his staff were apparently duped by a pair of Russian comedians posing as the Ukrainian Prime Minister. That actually makes it worse, since he and his staff apparently cannot tell the difference between potential Russian agents and Ukrainian heads of state.

Which how can that possibly happen? Somebody with a Russian-sounding accent calls the Senator’s office, says he’s the Prime Minister of Ukraine, and what, they just patch him right through? It’s apparent that McCain’s office is in disarray and they’ve got a lot of work to do. Perhaps McCain got his security clearance from Hillary Clinton.
The comedic pair apparently fooled Graham in a similar call, wherein Graham discussed his plans to push through additional 67-vote veto proof sanctions against Russia in the Senate. In the past, Vovan and Lexus have tricked celebrities like Elton John. Just this past week they also got U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters.
Ironically, Vovan and Lexus, still posing as Groysman, warned McCain that his phone conversations were possibly being tapped by Moscow. McCain responded, “I thank you very much for that information and I will certainly be aware of it as to the content of my conversations as far as any national security issues are concerned.”

But then McCain recklessly charged forward in the conversation anyway, going on to discuss potential new sanctions.
There should be an immediate investigation into McCain and Graham’s ties to Ukraine, their ongoing freelance foreign policy, their offers to send arms there and involve the U.S. in the civil war in Ukraine, their push to initiate more sanctions on Russia at Ukraine’s behest, and even to encourage Ukraine to take the provocative step of formally requesting NATO membership.
These ongoing attempts to set U.S. foreign policy and draw us into conflict with Russia via independent, reckless diplomacy are unacceptable and inappropriate, particularly since it appears to be designed to undermine Trump’s stated U.S. policy to engage with Russia. To do it in the current climate of escalating tensions is nuts. McCain is setting his own policy in Ukraine, and making an already dangerous situation even more so by fomenting the civil war there, and threatening to get the U.S. involved in what could be a direct confrontation with nuclear-armed Russia.

This is why the president alone has power under Article II of the Constitution to conduct foreign relations on behalf of the U.S. and not a council of senators. It is so that on the world’s stage, we have one official spokesperson. McCain can propose we go to war over Ukraine via legislation, but that is a debate for the halls of Congress and the American people — not foreign leaders. This goes to the heart of the separation of powers which, McCain, a one-time Republican nominee for president, ought to respect.
