Trump's Fake News 'Awards'- as reported on: https://gop.com/the-highly-anticipated- ... ws-awards/

1. The New York Times’ Paul Krugman claimed on the day of President Trump’s historic, landslide victory that the economy would never recover.

2. ABC News' Brian Ross CHOKES and sends markets in a downward spiral with false report.


3. CNN FALSELY reported that candidate Donald Trump and his son Donald J. Trump, Jr. had access to hacked documents from WikiLeaks.


4. TIME FALSELY reported that President Trump removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Oval Office.


5. Washington Post FALSELY reported the President’s massive sold-out rally in Pensacola, Florida was empty. Dishonest reporter showed picture of empty arena HOURS before crowd started pouring in.


6. CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese prime minister. Japanese prime minister actually led the way with the feeding.


7. CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci’s meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a “significant breakdown in process.”


(via washingtonpost.com)

8. Newsweek FALSELY reported that Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda did not shake President Trump’s hand.



9. CNN FALSELY reported that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump’s claim that he was told he is not under investigation.




10. The New York Times FALSELY claimed on the front page that the Trump administration had hidden a climate report.


(via WashingtonPost.com)
11. And last, but not least: "RUSSIA COLLUSION!" Russian collusion is perhaps the greatest hoax perpetrated on the American people. THERE IS NO COLLUSION!


Trump tweeted:

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump
Well, now that collusion with Russia is proving to be a total hoax and the only collusion is with Hillary Clinton and the FBI/Russia, the Fake News Media (Mainstream) and this phony new book are hitting out at every new front imaginable. They should try winning an election. Sad!
9:32 AM - Jan 5, 2018



While the media spent 90% of the time focused on negative coverage or fake news, the President has been getting results:

1. The economy has created nearly 2 million jobs and gained over $8 trillion in wealth since the President’s inauguration.

2. African Americans and Hispanics are enjoying the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history.

3. The President signed historic tax cuts and relief for hardworking Americans not seen since President Reagan.

4. President Trump’s plan to cut regulations has exceeded “2 out for every 1 in” mandate, issuing 22 deregulatory actions for every one new regulatory action.

5. The President has unleashed an American energy boom by ending Obama-era regulations, approving the Keystone pipeline, auctioning off millions of new acres for energy exploration, and opening up ANWR.

6. ISIS is in retreat, having been crushed in Iraq and Syria.

7. President Trump followed through on his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel and instructed the State Department to begin to relocate the Embassy.

8. With President Trump’s encouragement, more member nations are paying their fair share for the common defense in the NATO alliance.

9. Signed the Veterans Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act to allow senior officials in the VA to fire failing employees and establishes safeguards to protect whistleblowers.

10. President Trump kept his promise and appointed Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Why do so many officials FEAR and kowtow to the Marshfield Airport gang?

What is the source of their power? Does it involve some kind of unseemly enterprise? A government entity?

That’s because the biggest driver of illegal immigration isn’t on the supply side; it’s on the demand side. Immigrants, legal and illegal, come to America primarily to work. They stay because their employers, many of them Republicans, don’t care or don’t ask about immigration status. Democratic politicians, particularly in sanctuary cities, want to keep it that way.

The wall, in theory, would stop illegal border crossings from Mexico, but it wouldn’t do anything about people who come here legally and then simply overstay their visas — about 42 percent of immigrants in the country illegally. “Though there are parts of the border where better barriers are needed, universal E-Verify would probably do more to cut illegal immigration,” Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, tells me. “It would weaken the jobs magnet, which is what attracts both border infiltrators and visa over-stayers — the wall is irrelevant to over-stayers.”

Unlike the wall, Krikorian notes, “E-Verify wouldn’t cost much, if anything, since the IT infrastructure is already in place to handle all new hires.” If Trump wanted a clear — and immediate — win on illegal immigration, he’d evolve and recognize that the wall’s greatest utility might be as a bargaining chip.

As the investigative arm for the Department of Homeland Security, ICE focuses its criminal investigations on the most egregious violators and concentrates its worksite inspection efforts on employers conducting business in critical infrastructure and national security interest industries/sectors (e.g. chemical, commercial facilities, communications, critical manufacturing, dams, emergency services, government facilities, information technology, nuclear reactors materials and waste and transportation systems).

In pursuing this strategy, ICE applies risk assessment principles to critical infrastructure and worksite enforcement cases in order to maximize the impact of investigations against the most significant threats and violators.
ICE focuses its criminal investigations on the most egregious violators

Such as the Marshfield restaurant owner, the MIT custodian, etc.

concentrates its worksite inspection efforts on employers conducting business in critical infrastructure

ensuring that the service industry, farms, hotels, nursing homes, truckers, cleaners, fast food, etc. won't be hassled and will be free to continue to hire people in the country illegally.

Illegal is illegal.

Trump has something in common with Bush the Elder: abandoning allies. The Kurds, who we advised and funded and who beat ISIS, are now being decimated with the support of Iran and Russia.

Think slower.

Trump bills himself as the greatest negotiator ever and a genius; can’t he talk the Turkish dictator out of killing the very same people we funded to kill off ISIS?

If you don’t defend your allies, you can’t be trusted.

Just ask Obama about the red line in Syria; failing to live up to his own promise left a big hole the Russians were only too glad to fill.

What’s up; aren’t the Foxy schills covering this?

Billionaire Steve Wynn is stepping down as Republican National Committee finance chair, Politico reported on Saturday, a day after reports that the casino magnate had engaged in multiple instances of sexual harassment.

The decision may be a blow to the Republican Party’s fundraising as it gears up for midterm elections in November with an unpopular president as its standard-bearer.

Wynn, the founder of Wynn Resorts Ltd., paid $7.5 million to settle claims brought by a former manicurist at his Las Vegas resort who said he pressured her to have sex with him, the Wall Street Journal said Friday. The report contained numerous other allegations of harassment and coercion by other women.
Bad look and worse timing.

So, they going to do the DACA deal? Your good guys won't like it, it's amnesty, after all...Even though the deal cuts legal immigration way back, and is a 25 billion WPA project...we'll see.

What's 25 billion more added to the deficit you guys promised to trim?

House Republicans are announcing they’re leaving office at a significantly faster rate than any other recent Congresses, suggesting Democrats could pick up seats in the 2018 midterm elections. On Wednesday, it was South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy, the influential chairman of the House Oversight Committee.

Already, at least 38 House Republicans have announced they are retiring, running for another office or resigning outright. They’re leaving from all over the map, from southern New Jersey to southern New Mexico.

Democrats need to pick up 24 House seats to retake the majority from Republicans, who’ve had control of the House since 2011.

Republican leadership has acknowledged it has a problem.

“We’ve got to find better ways to empower people where they feel like this is worth their time,” Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas, a former two-term National Republican Congressional Committee chair who met with several members to discuss retirements, told the National Journal in September.

He is probably looking at positioning himself to take Jeff Sessions position.

Could be why he puts on a good show with his aggressive on-camera interrogations of various swamp creatures...BUT NEVER actually follows up that aggressiveness with any recommendations or actions to procecute, indite the swamp creatures he addresses.

Curious, at first, unless one wonders if he is just a good showman who does not want to alienate the same swamp creatures who could influence his next job.

I like his show...but hope that is not all there is to Mr. Gowdy. If it is, he can let the door hit him on his way out. And we can hope for someone else to enter who is willing and able to follow through.

Trey Gowdy. tweeted this 5 and 4 hours ago.


"While this memo raises serious concerns with the FISA process, I have been and remain confident in the overwhelming majority of the men and women serving at the FBI and DOJ."

and this one


"As I have said repeatedly, I also remain 100 percent confident in Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The contents of this memo do not - in any way - discredit his investigation."

These tweets doesn't back up the President and his war on DOJ and FBI. I guess you say your leaving and now you want to show people you have a set of balls. little late .

In 2013, Russian intelligence operatives attempted to recruit Page, and one described him as enthusiastic about business opportunities in Russia but an "idiot".[2][20] News accounts in 2017 indicated that because of these ties to Russia, Page had been the subject of a FISA warrant in 2014, at least two years earlier than was indicated in the stories concerning his role in the 2016 Presidential campaign of Donald Trump.[21][22]

Trump 2016 presidential campaign
Page served as a foreign-policy advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 Presidential campaign.[23] In September 2016, U.S. intelligence officials investigated alleged contacts between Page and Russian officials subject to U.S. sanctions, including Igor Sechin.[4] After news reports began to appear describing Page's links to Russia and Putin's government, Page stepped down from his role in the Trump campaign.[1][24]

Shortly after Page resigned from the Trump campaign, the Federal Bureau of Investigation obtained a warrant from the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to surveil Page's communications.[25] To issue the warrant, a federal judge concluded there was probable cause to believe that Page was a foreign agent knowingly engaging in clandestine intelligence for the Russian government. Page was the only American who was directly targeted with a FISA warrant in 2016 as part of the Russia probe. The 90-day warrant was repeatedly renewed.[26]

In January 2017, Page's name appeared repeatedly in a leaked contract intelligence dossier containing unsubstantiated allegations of close interactions between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.[27][28][29][30] By the end of January 2017, Page was under investigation by the FBI, the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. He has denied wrongdoing.[31] The Trump Administration has attempted to distance itself from Page, denying that he was in fact an "advisor" to Trump.[2
Page has been on the radar since 2013. He was recruited by the Russians.

When getting a surveillance warrant on this guy, the gov admitted that part of the evidence they used was in fact politically motivated. What’s the news?

From the National Review:
If you were expecting a bombshell that will discredit either the FBI’s Russia and obstruction investigations or its decision not to recommend the prosecution of Hillary Clinton, then the Nunes Memo is a dud.

It focuses on a very narrow subject, the obtaining of a single FISA warrant (subsequently renewed by Trump’s own Administration) on a fringe figure (Carter Page) who by all appearances deserved to be investigated, and surveillance of whom probably didn’t uncover very much about the Trump campaign that you wouldn’t have known from watching TV.
