Here are some shorter video clips:

I absolutely LOVE our President when he slaps the Fake News around:

From the article linked above:

Flanked by Attorney General Bill Barr, President Trump signed an executive order in the Oval Office on Thursday that interprets Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 (CDA) as not providing statutory liability protections for tech companies that engage in censorship and political conduct.

The president’s order, which also cuts federal funding for social media platforms that censor users’ political views, came just two days after Twitter took the unprecedented step of slapping a “misleading” warning label on two of Trump’s tweets concerning the fraud risks of nationwide mail-in balloting. The move immediately backfired: Experts disputed that Trump’s tweet was actually misleading, in part because mail-in balloting has been linked to ongoing fraud; Twitter’s fact-check itself contained false statements; and Twitter failed to apply the standard of review to other users.

Our President, FLOTUS and VP received a briefing about the 2020 Hurricane Season. During the briefing our President and VP Pence shared some remarks from the Oval Office.

China is going to live to regret unleashing this virus on our country and the rest of the world. They are going to be destroyed by the EAGLE 🦅!

From the article linked above:

The Trump administration is expected to expel thousands of Chinese graduate students that are in the United States and who have ties to Chinese military schools. The expected order comes as U.S. intelligence officials continue to warn of spying by Chinese nationals at U.S. universities and in science and technology fields.

“American officials are discussing ways to punish China for its passage of a new national security law intended to enable crackdowns in Hong Kong, but the plans to cancel student visas were under consideration before the crisis over the law, which was announced last week by Chinese officials,” The New York Times reported Thursday. “Administrators and teachers have been briefed in recent years by the F.B.I. and the Justice Department on potential national security threats posed by Chinese students, especially ones working in the sciences.”

Another win in court against the Democrats BS plan to try and steal the election.

From the article linked above:

The RNC, NRCC, and Pennsylvania Republican Party also successfully defended against a requested injunction in Crossey v. Boockvar. Left-wing plaintiffs represented by Marc Elias and Perkins Coie asked the court to re-write Pennsylvania’s election laws to allow ballot harvesting, require the Commonwealth to count ballots delivered after Election Day, and gut signature match requirements. The court denied that request finding that the Plaintiffs were unlikely to succeed with their claims.

All that Crying Chuck, the Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. can do is whine and complain. They can’t stop the Trump Armada,

From the article linked above:

Senate Democrats released a 50-plus page report Wednesday sounding alarm bells over the rate at which Senate Republicans and President Trump have confirmed federal judges during the president’s first term as Republicans are working on shepherding along even more lifetime-appointed federal judges.

The account calls GOP-appointed judges “politicians in robes,” rails against the Chief Justice John Roberts’ Supreme Court, slams the conservative and libertarian lawyers’ group the Federalist Society and says Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is “betraying the vision of our founders.”

[…] At this point in his first term, Trump and the Republican Senate have confirmed more than 190 judges to federal Article III courts overall – second only to Jimmy Carter – and 51 judges to the U.S. Courts of Appeals — one more than Carter and 16 more than the next-most successful president, George H.W. Bush.

Our President and Cocaine Mitch still have the following remaining:

  • US Court of Appeals1 vacancy / 1 nominee pending
  • US District Court71 vacancies / 41 nominees pending
  • US Court of International Trade2 vacancies / 1 nominee pending
  • US Court of Federal Claims6 vacancies / 5 nominees pending
  • TOTAL80 vacancies / 48 nominees pending

Lee Smith appeared on Lou Dobbs to discuss the latest revelations in the Obama-era surveillance operations. Mr. Smith calls it “Obama’s Culture of Espionage.”

Michael Flynn’s defense attorney Sidney Powell appeared  on FBN with Liz MacDonald to discuss recent events.

After our President announced that he would veto any FISA reauthorization bill without a full investigative review of prior FISA abuse so that legislation could be created specifically to fix the severe flaws in the process, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has dropped the vote for FISA reauthorization:

From the article linked above:

The House of Representatives on Thursday dropped consideration of legislation that would have extended U.S. surveillance tools, after President Donald Trump threatened a veto and his fellow Republicans withdrew their support.

“The two-thirds of the Republican Party that voted for this bill in March have indicated they are going to vote against it now,” Representative Steny Hoyer said in a statement on Thursday, after a vote on the measure was unexpectedly postponed late on Wednesday.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to members of the Democratic caucus saying she intends to hold negotiations with the Senate on a possible compromise bill that could be passed and sent to Trump.

Meanwhile Minneapolis, Minnesota continues to burn!

  1. Twitter or someone took down the second part of the President’s tweet: “….These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”

    ** SUSPENSION OF ENTRY AS NONIMMIGRANTS OF CERTAIN STUDENTS AND RESEARCHERS FROM THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA

    – – – – – – –

    BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

    A PROCLAMATION

    The People’s Republic of China (PRC) is engaged in a wide‑ranging and heavily resourced campaign to acquire sensitive United States technologies and intellectual property, in part to bolster the modernization and capability of its military, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The PRC’s acquisition of sensitive United States technologies and intellectual property to modernize its military is a threat to our Nation’s long-term economic vitality and the safety and security of the American people.

    The PRC authorities use some Chinese students, mostly post‑graduate students and post-doctorate researchers, to operate as non-traditional collectors of intellectual property. Thus, students or researchers from the PRC studying or researching beyond the undergraduate level who are or have been associated with the PLA are at high risk of being exploited or co-opted by the PRC authorities and provide particular cause for concern. In light of the above, I have determined that the entry of certain nationals of the PRC seeking to enter the United States pursuant to an F or J visa to study or conduct research in the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including sections 212(f) and 215(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1182(f) and 1185(a), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, hereby find that the unrestricted entry into the United States as nonimmigrants of persons described in section 1 of this proclamation would, except as provided for in section 2 of this proclamation, be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and that their entry should be subject to certain restrictions, limitations, and exceptions. I therefore hereby proclaim the following:

    Section 1. Suspension and Limitation on Entry. The entry into the United States as a nonimmigrant of any national of the PRC seeking to enter the United States pursuant to an F or J visa to study or conduct research in the United States, except for a student seeking to pursue undergraduate study, and who either receives funding from or who currently is employed by, studies at, or conducts research at or on behalf of, or has been employed by, studied at, or conducted research at or on behalf of, an entity in the PRC that implements or supports the PRC’s “military-civil fusion strategy” is hereby suspended and limited subject to section 2 of this proclamation. For the purposes of this proclamation, the term “military-civil fusion strategy” means actions by or at the behest of the PRC to acquire and divert foreign technologies, specifically critical and emerging technologies, to incorporate into and advance the PRC’s military capabilities.

    Sec. 2. Scope of Suspension and Limitation on Entry.
    (a) Section 1 of this proclamation shall not apply to:

    (i) any lawful permanent resident of the United States;

    (ii) any alien who is the spouse of a United States citizen or lawful permanent resident;

    (iii) any alien who is a member of the United States Armed Forces and any alien who is a spouse or child of a member of the United States Armed Forces;

    (iv) any alien whose travel falls within the scope of section 11 of the United Nations Headquarters Agreement or who would otherwise be allowed entry into the United States pursuant to United States obligations under applicable international agreements;

    (v) any alien who is studying or conducting research in a field involving information that would not contribute to the PRC’s military‑civil fusion strategy, as determined by the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the appropriate executive departments and agencies (agencies);

    (vi) any alien whose entry would further important United States law enforcement objectives, as determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or their respective designees, based on a recommendation of the Attorney General or his designee; or

    (vii) any alien whose entry would be in the national interest, as determined by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or their respective designees.

    (b) Nothing in this proclamation shall be construed to limit the ability of an individual to seek asylum, refugee status, withholding of removal, or protection under the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, consistent with the laws of the United States.

    Sec. 3. Implementation and Enforcement. (a) Persons covered by sections 1 or 2 of this proclamation shall be identified by the Secretary of State or the Secretary of State’s designee, in his or her sole discretion, pursuant to such standards and procedures as the Secretary of State may establish. For purposes of subsections 2(a)(v), 2(a)(vi), and 2(a)(vii) of this proclamation, the Secretary of State shall provide for identifications of aliens based on the further determinations and recommendations provided for in those subsections by the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security.

    (b) The Secretary of State shall implement this proclamation as it applies to visas pursuant to such procedures as the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, may establish in the Secretary of State’s discretion. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall implement this proclamation as it applies to the entry of aliens pursuant to such procedures as the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of State, may establish in the Secretary of Homeland Security’s discretion.

    (c) An alien who circumvents the application of this proclamation through fraud, willful misrepresentation of a material fact, or illegal entry shall be a priority for removal by the Department of Homeland Security.

    Sec. 4. Termination. This proclamation shall remain in effect until terminated by the President. The Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of Homeland Security, may at any time recommend that the President continue, modify, or terminate this proclamation.

    Sec. 5. Effective Date. This proclamation is effective at 12:00 p.m. eastern daylight time on June 1, 2020.

    Sec. 6. Additional Measures. (a) The Secretary of State shall consider, in the Secretary’s discretion, whether nationals of the PRC currently in the United States pursuant to F or J visas and who otherwise meet the criteria described in section 1 of this proclamation should have their visas revoked pursuant to section 221(i) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1201(i).

    (b) Within 60 days of the effective date of this proclamation, the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the heads of appropriate agencies, shall review nonimmigrant and immigrant programs and shall recommend to the President, through the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, any other measures requiring Presidential action that would mitigate the risk posed by the PRC’s acquisition of sensitive United States technologies and intellectual property.

    (c) The Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall, within the scope of their respective authorities and in coordination with the heads of appropriate agencies, take action to further mitigate the risk posed by the PRC’s acquisition of sensitive United States technologies and intellectual property. The Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall report to the President, within 60 days of the effective date of this proclamation, through the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, any such planned and executed actions.

    (d) The Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall consider issuing updated regulations and guidance, as appropriate, implementing the inadmissibility provisions in section 212(a)(3)(D) of the INA, 8 U.S.C. 1182(a)(3)(D).

    Sec. 7. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this proclamation shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

    (i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

    (ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

    (b) This proclamation shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

    (c) This proclamation is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

    IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-ninth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.

    DONALD J. TRUMP

      ** PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP IS PROTECTING AMERICA FROM CHINA’S EFFORTS TO STEAL TECHNOLOGY AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
      ————————————————————

      “Protecting the innovations, creations, and inventions that power our country are vital to our economic prosperity and national security.” – President Donald J. Trump

      SAFEGUARDING NATIONAL SECURITY: President Donald J. Trump is dismantling China’s ability to use graduate students to steal intellectual property and technology from the United States.
      * President Trump has issued a proclamation to block certain graduate level and above Chinese nationals associated with entities in China that implement or support China’s Military-Civil Fusion (MCF) strategy, from using F or J visas to enter the United States.
      * China’s theft of American technology, intellectual property, and research threatens the safety, security, and economy of the United States.
      * Today’s actions will not affect students who come to the United States for legitimate reasons.
      + Affected students are those who have been employed by or who studied or researched with Chinese entities that support China’s MCF strategy.

      PRESERVING AMERICAN SUPERIORITY: President Trump is ensuring that our Nation remains militarily and technologically dominant.
      * The United States is the leading innovator of next-generation technologies, including those with military applications.
      * China’s MCF strategy is an attempt to develop the most technologically advanced military in the world by any means necessary, including by co-option and coercion.
      * Through China’s MCF strategy, the People’s Liberation Army is using certain Chinese students and researchers to steal American technological secrets and innovations.
      * China should not be permitted to advance its military development through access to our Nation’s educational and research centers.
      * President Trump is preventing China from acquiring critical American technologies that could boost its military and threaten our national security interests, by suspending and limiting the entry into the United States of high-risk students and researchers from China.

      KEEPING PERSISTENT PRESSURE ON CHINA: Today’s action is the latest example of President Trump’s commitment to preventing China from taking advantage of the United States.
      * The Department of Justice’s China Initiative and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are directing resources to identify and prosecute trade secrets theft, hacking, and economic espionage.
      * President Trump has successfully used tariffs to persuade China to sign a Phase One Trade Agreement that secured significant protections for American businesses and workers.
      * The President has taken action against China to protect American producers from unfair competition and counterfeit goods.
      * President Trump has taken action to prevent foreign malign actors from gaining access to United States information networks.

    1. Yep. How soon people forget. The whole Rodney King thing…

      Those riots were horrible. And LAPD was pretty rotten back then, but nowhere near what they are today. As an example, I roomed with an apartment manager in the mid-70s, and we had a VERY troublesome, one might say CRIMINAL tenant. LAPD wouldn’t help, despite repeated, difficult problems. Finally, after about ten incidents, they recommended to us a “plan”, which put us at great bodily risk (as in target practice targets), assuring us that they’d be there to catch the perps.

      We followed their “plan”, the perp escaped, and the following day the entire apartment building was trashed, with week-old (if not month-old) garbage. Fortunately nothing else happened, except the property owner was out around six months’ rent, and my roommate and I were out about two days of cleaning up and the cost of professional cleanup… Yep, LAPD, just like “Rancid Transit” (RTD, the LA transit district)…

      Giloo, were you there in LA or SoCal during the riots?

    2. Here are three threads from Carlos Osweda that are really perceptive and interesting:
      https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1266098552679194624.html

      “Now, my guess is that everyone is looking in the wrong direction, at the Communications Decency Act of 1996.

      Section 230 “provides broad immunity to websites that curate and moderate their own platforms.”
      The theory is that Trump would rescind that legal immunity because social-media platforms are acting bad faith.

      Although we may see an executive order ABOUT THIS, the REAL story is happening under the radar.

      There are two reason why Trump is misdirecting.
      As always, Republicans can be counted on to sabotage Trump.
      “‘I do think the President should stop tweeting about Joe Scarborough in the middle of a pandemic,’ said Rep. Liz Cheney, a Wyoming Republican. ‘He’s the commander in chief of this nation and he is causing great pain to the family of the young woman who died.'”

      This is the usual Republican refusal to fight back.

      It’s why they always lost to a party that offers nothing but failure and misery.”

      Now, the executive order is REAL, but it would lead to a protracted legal battle.

      Therefore I have no doubt whatsoever that negotiations with the tech giants are happening clandestinely because of the power Trump has under the national state of emergency.
      “Section 706 [of the Communications Act of 1934] could effectively function as [an Internet] “kill switch” in the U.S. It could also give the president power to assume control over U.S. internet traffic.”

      How @realDonaldTrump thinks compared to our western allies.
      Norway is working on a guided ramjet artillery round that will have a range of 93 miles.
      Trump fast-tracked a program that will give the US guided artillery rounds with a range of…1150 miles.

      One thousand one hundred fifty miles.

      The rest of these threads are well worth reading. Seems we sometimes don’t dig enough or look in the wrong direction when we’re somewhat depressed (as it were) from the enemy. Then again, the enemy is busy chasing bright shiny things and stumbling over marbles in the hallway for the same reason…

      1. KInd of funny in that last thread, the idiocy of libtards/idealogues/non-techies (e.g. PHBs) dictating technical details or decisions to REAL engineers. Sort of like the PHB telling Dilbert that he wants the database to be in Mauve because he’s heard that color is faster…

        I’ve spoken about the Nazi Dornier Do-335 before.

        It was a single-set fighter-bomber.

        Sure, the push-pull configuration was unusual, but it doesn’t look TOO crazy, right?

        “It was the stupidest aircraft ever built.

        But Hitler wanted it.
        THAT is what government does.

        A water-color artist makes TECHNICAL decisions for aircraft.”

        And Fidel Castro was almost (should have been) drafted as a pitcher by the New York/SF Giants…
        But for a couple of stupid twists of fate…..
