News Roundup! Priestap’s Interview, Discharge Petition, Closing the Southern Border, Iran Fuel Sanctions, FL Party Affiliation Data, 9th Circuit…..

Representative Doug Collins of Georgia decided to release Bill Priestap’s Interview earlier this morning on the House floor.

I think Mexico heard our President loud and clear and are stepping up their efforts in order to have our border remain open. At the end of the day, I think our President will shut the border at the end of this week.

What I admire most about our President is that Americans come before everything else whenever he makes a decision.

Representative Steve Scalise is filing a Discharge Petition to bypass Nancy Pelosi & force every member of the House to go on record on where they stand on the Born Alive Act. 218 votes are needed to move forward.

8 countries got a waiver from the fuel sanctions placed on Iran. The sanctions were imposed on November, 4th.

From the article linked above:

Washington has pledged to eventually halt all purchases of crude oil from Iran globally but for now it said eight countries – China, India, South Korea, Japan, Italy, Greece, Taiwan and Turkey – can continue imports without penalty. Crude exports contribute one-third of Iran’s government revenues.

There won’t be any waivers going forward.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-iran-sanctions-usa-waivers/three-countries-granted-iran-oil-waivers-have-cut-imports-to-zero-us-envoy-idUSKCN1RE298

From the article linked above:

Three of the eight countries to which Washington granted waivers to import Iranian oil have now cut their shipments from Iran to zero, a U.S. special representative said on Tuesday.

“There are better market conditions for us to accelerate our path to zero. We are not looking to grant any waivers or exceptions to our sanctions regime,” Hook said.

A senior Trump administration official told reporters on Monday that the U.S. government was considering additional sanctions against Iran that would target areas of its economy that have not been hit before.

Based on Jared’s statement last night to Laura about Florida ex felons registering as Republicans in larger numbers than Democrats, I decided to take a look at the Party Affiliation numbers since 2016 up until February 28, 2019.

Our President is transforming the 9th Circuit! After the remaining nominees are confirmed, there will be 16 Democrat Appointed Judges versus 13 Republican Appointed Judges.

If our President is able to replace 2 more Democrat Appointed Judges (9 of the active Judges are Clinton Appointees), we will have a MAJORITY on the 9th Circuit (15 to 14).

From the article linked above:

For the first time in more than three decades, Republican-appointed judges will soon occupy nearly half the seats on the left-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — dealing a setback to progressive legal advocates who have long seen the court as a safe bet for favorable rulings.

The Atlanta Federal Reserve revised their 1st Quarter real GDP rate earlier today. It remained at 2.1%.

Lets keep on WINNING!

  1. Trump had better watch out. “Too much winning” is circling like a vulture. Some of us are going to weaken, and start mouthing the words. Some of us are going to see those poor terrified Dems, curling up in a fetal position, and start crying for mercy!

    1. Flep, that is one of the most poignant, beautiful pictures I’ve ever seen. THanks for posting that tweet.

      The love of a father for his son, and the son for his father, and the father for his country.
      Would be a great pic for Father’s day. My Dad would’ve been 99 years old last month, but he only made it to 56. I followed him around like a lost puppy, getting in his way sometimes, and asking way too many questions.

      But he always had time for me. Until there wasn’t any more to be had. GOD had other plans for him.

      What the left and the feminazis, etc. (and also the “Hefnerites” !) have done to undermine and destroy fatherhood is unconscionable. Destroy the family unit and you destroy society. And, sad to say, that’s their intent.

      May GOD Bless, protect, and guide the fathers and leaders of today (and the future, like this young boy), and may HE return the family to its rightful place in society.

        This is so true. My dad has been gone eight years now and I miss him every day. I never stopped learning from him. He taught me right up until the very hour of his death. He set such an example for us.

          Today’s snowflakes and leeches can only think of taking…

          I always think about how I’d go out into the garage and ask, “Hey Dad, what’s this”, and it would be someting like a last that you use to make shoes. So, I’d learn about shoes, leather, feet, and all sorts of things, along with the fact that my Dad could make his own shoes, if push came to shove… growing up out in the country does that for you…

          They don’t make ’em like that anymore… 😦

          1. Watching what our society has done to demean and ridicule fathers over the last few decades has been painful, especially when I consider how much I owe my own father.

            I tried to tell him sometimes, kind of awkwardly, how much I looked up to him and he always looked kind of puzzled as if what he did was no big deal, it was just what a father did.

            Obviously, I have learned since that not all dads are as great as mine (and yours!) and that is tremendously sad. As important as my mom was, my dad is probably most responsible for the person I am.

            I loved your story about the shoes. My dad was kind of like that, too. He knew everything. Before there was the internet, I’d have a question and I’d ask Dad. He nearly always knew.

              Leader of the Band – Dan Fogleberg

              An only child alone and wild, a cabinet maker’s son
              His hands were meant for different work
              And his heart was known to none

              He left his home and went his lone and solitary way
              And he gave to me a gift I know I never can repay
              A quiet man of music denied a simpler fate

              He tried to be a soldier once, but his music wouldn’t wait
              He earned his love through discipline, a thundering velvet hand
              His gentle means of sculpting souls took me years to understand

              The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing old
              But his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soul
              My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
              I’m just a living legacy to the leader of the band

              My brother’s lives were different for they heard another call
              One went to Chicago and the other to St Paul
              And I’m in Colorado when I’m not in some hotel
              Living out this life I’ve chose and come to know so well

              I thank you for the music and your stories of the road
              I thank you for the freedom when it came my time to go
              I thank you for the kindness and the times when you got tough
              And papa, I don’t think I said I love you near enough

              The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing old
              But his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soul
              My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
              I’m just a living legacy to the leader of the band
              I am a living legacy to the leader of the band

          2. OMG…its been years since I’ve heard that song it was one of my favorites!!! When I was young i always wished I’d had a Father like that. I was very young when my parents divorced due to alcoholism and abuse. I have very few memories of my father and they’re not all good memories. He was not allowed around us kids due to the alcoholism and abuse, understandably so. My Mother did the best she could to be Mom and Dad raising 6 kids on her own, and to me she was the best! She was the leader of the band!!! I lost her 4 years ago and I really miss her, she was my rock.

  4. This was also a big win for our President and our country!

    From the article linked above:

    China announced on Monday that it would ban all variants of the powerful opioid fentanyl, a move that could slow the supply of a drug that in recent years has caused tens of thousands of overdose deaths in the United States.

    By declaring that all varieties of fentanyl are now controlled substances, China made good on a pledge that the Chinese leader, Xi Jinping, made to President Trump late last year.

    China’s export of the drug, which American officials say accounts for the vast majority of the fentanyl that ends up in the United States, has long been a source of tension in relations. More recently, it has also become tangled up in the continuing trade war.

          Maybe I keep repeating this, but it bears repeating. The DEMONcRATs, having expunged GOD from their platform, implicitly, if not explicitly invited Satan in to their party, and its leadership.

          And Satan loves nothing better than mocking GOD, damaging or destroying HIS works, and misleading people (even the elect, were it possible).

          But GOD sees all of this. And in HIS time, and in HIS way, HE will make it right. We need to put on the Armour of GOD, and to pray. Ephesians 6:10-18. (not just 12, the whole thing)…

    1. That is why we call them the Uni-party. With very few exceptions they DO NOT REPRESENT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

      “The chief problem of American political life for a long time has been how to make the two congressional parties more national and international. The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so the that American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.”

  9. We’ve both been blessed by great Dads. As an aside, we had a couple of shovels we used in the back yard that looked a lot (cough) like C&O Railroad’s coal shovels, from the good old days.

    Speaking of the back yard, when I was a “wee laddie”, if I was upset, I’d sit on the steps (all two of them, but they were huge for a youngster) between the kitchen and the attached garage. After a while, my Dad would come around looking for me, and would sit down next to me, not saying a thing, and eventually I’d tell him what was on my mind.

    When I was REALLY upset, I’d go on through the garage, out the back door, around the house, and over on the back sidewalk across from the rose bushes, sitting down with my back against the other side of the garage.

    Again, my Dad would come around, looking for me, but not with any anger, or anything.

    He’d sit down next to me, not saying a thing, and, if after a while, I didn’t offer any comment, he’d ask,
    “Son, what’s troubling you?”…

    I guess now, I’d say, “Dad, it’s ’cause you’re gone”…

    He really showed me what Agape Love is, and how to be a father, and how to correct without criticizing.

    How I miss him……..

  10. Fisher Industries really wants to build southern border wall – will do it and pave a road as they go – quick and cheaper than any other company!

    “Arizona-based Fisher Industries President Tommy Fisher is meeting this week with top Department of Homeland Security officials, along with Democrats and Republicans in Congress, to sell his plan, the Washington Examiner has learned.

    “DHS needs a contractor to build the border fence as fast as possible, without compromising the quality of the fence. The ideal contractor would build the border fence faster, of higher quality, and at less cost than any other contractor. Fisher Sand & Gravel Co. is that contractor,” Fisher Industries officials wrote in an official paper version of the proposal.”

    1. Continued:

      The fence’s steel is all made in-house and would be weathered to avoid rusting and the need for replacement for 75 years, Fisher said. The top of the fence would have spin cameras mounted to it with systems that use facial recognition technology.

      The barrier would go up in four regions: 42 miles near Yuma, Ariz.; 69 miles near El Paso, Texas; 15 miles near El Centro, Calif.; and 91 miles near Tucson, Ariz.

      Each mile would cost $12.5 million. Mobilization or start-up costs are estimated around $200 million and a $360 million five-year warranty is included in the total proposed cost. Fisher said all parts and labor would be American.”

      VERY IMPRESSIVE!!!

  12. I saw an excerpt from Priestap’s testimony yesterday in which he states flatly that DOJ/FBI believes that once a FISA application is approved, the application must have included an adequate factual basis for approval! So, the reason nobody who prepared and/or signed the Carter Page FISA applications will say they lacked an adequate factual foundation, even though they were based entirely on the “salacious and unverified” dossier (to quote FBI director Comey), is that the FISA applications were approved.

    So, those of us who can read and understand the definition of the word “fact” can argue all we want that the FISA applications lacked an adequate factual predicate for approval. The very clever lawyers involved in the process are going to argue “I got away with it, so it must be legal.” And, moreover, when you ask them whether I intended to break the law, they will reply “I could not have had improper motives, I got away with it.”
