Fox Insider: “Talking Points Memo,” broke down the three things Americans are entitled to from the government to enable the pursuit of happiness:
1. An effective defense against people who would kill them,
2. An affordable medical system that can alleviate suffering, and
3. Fair access to the free marketplace.
Americans should have three major expectations of their government: security, an affordable medical system and fair access to the marketplace. Due to hackers and leaks, America’s cybersecurity threats are “almost out of control.” Security is America’s most important issue, followed closely by health care. Americans are entitled to an affordable health care system, marked by financial affordability, direct access to physicians of one’s choice, and protection from chaotic “red tape” and delays. Americans should have reasonable access to the marketplace, with sensible guidelines to protect buyers and sellers of goods. Bernie Sanders’ philosophy of being shepherded through life is not what America is all about.
There is a much bigger scandal here: (FISA=Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act)
LEVINE: “We have a prior administration, Barack Obama and his surrogates, who were supporting Hillary Clinton who were supporting the Democrat Party, who were using the instrumentalities of the Federal Government intelligence activities, to surveil members of the Trump Campaign and to put that information out in the public. Those are police state tactics. Nothing General Flynn did, nothing General Sessions has done are even in the same category as that.
Where did the orders come from to intercept these phone calls? To record these phone calls? How many more phone calls involving Michael Flynn and other would be administration officials were intercepted and recorded? Were the President of the United States? the now president of the United States, Donald Trump, were his phone calls recorded?
I am speaking as somebody who was Chief of Staff to an attorney general. I am telling you it is not that simple to get authorization from the FISA Court! It’s not that simple to be tapping into phone calls and recording phone calls, particularly of private citizens. So the questions is, how many of Michael Flynn’s phone calls to various foreign leaders were intercepted by the Obama administration and recorded by the Obama administration? How many phone calls by Donald Trump, if any, have been intercepted by the Obama administration and recorded by the Obama administration, and all the other transition officials involved in foreign policy and national security and defense policy. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the real scandal!
Today’s reporting on Sessions having a chance meeting with the ambassador this summer of Russia, and having an actual meeting in his senate office this summer. Where did that information come from? Where did that information come from?”
So the question ladies and gentlemen, was Obama surveilling top Trump campaign officials during the election? In other words, was the president of the United States on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the Democrat party, using our intelligence services or the FISA Court to gather information on their opponents. THIS IS A MASSIVE SCANDAL, THE LIKES OF WHICH WE HAVE NEVER SEEN!
I asked my buddy Andrew McCarthy about this, off-line, we talk a lot. He said to me “we absolutely know this is true.”
The FBI did a preliminary, criminal investigation based on potential of connection between a server in Trump Towers and a couple of Russian banks. That turned out to be a dry hole. But one of the most outrageous things I have ever seen he wrote me, totally uncovered by the media, of course. Instead of closing the investigation, the Obama Justice Department tried to turn it into a FISA court investigation in June. Apparently the first application they submitted named Trump. But we don’t know whether that means named him as a proposed surveillance target? or just mentioned his named his name in the application someplace. In any event, even the FISA Court which is very solicitous of Government requests said no! There was not enough evidence to make our Probable Cause involving Donald Trump. The required FISA showing to get a wire tap is PROBABLE CAUSE! Probable cause that the target is an agent of a foreign power. This must mean that in the middle of the campaign, Obama’s Justice Department was actively having Trump and some of this associates investigated, suggesting to a United States COURT that they were agents of Vladimir Putin’s regime.
In October, stretch run of campaign and five months after FISA Court said no. The Obama Justice Department goes back to the FISA Court with what we are told was a more narrowly tailored application. This one does not mention Trump, the FISA Court approved it and the apparent targets were Manafort, Stone and Page (Paul Manafort, Roger Stone and Carter Page). For all we know, it might still be going on. The New York Times wrote a big story about it in mid-January. In the story, after all the heavy breathing at the beginning, the Time concedes the investigation of Manafort and the others may have nothing to do with Trump and the Russian Hacking!!!!”
Micallef: How far does this go? What other investigations are going on right now? What other laws have been broken by the Obama Presidency? How deep does this dirt go? How safe are we citizens now? What is their end game? We know Obama is working hard to undermine the Trump administration but to what end? to destroy our Constitution and to aid Radical Islam and the New World Order? OR IS IT TO FULFILL the Democrats desire to Impeach our President who is not involved in anything that they are alleging? How do we stop it? This is beyond anything that has ever happened in American politics, and far worse than Watergate and other scandals. This is the misuse of government power to undermine a free election and the new administration. I for one, hope that Obama and all his ilk get tried for TREASON and are imprisoned for crimes against America, Americans and the world for creating this environment where everyone distrusts everyone, where breaking the law and inciting violence in our society towards Whites, Conservatives, Blacks that support Trump and Democracy are targeted and for targeting a GREAT MAN LIKE OUR PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP. I hope and pray that ATTORNEY JEFF SESSIONS nails these creeps to the wall and makes an example of them. This to me is the worst kind of treason, because its Aim is to take away the POWER from 65 million of us who voted for President Donald J. Trump and to silence our voices for freedom in America. This is a crime of immense proportions and someone should be held accountable for it.
Nancy Pelosi is the one who should resign. For being irresponsible. For leveling reckless recriminations and slurs against Attorney General Jeff Sessions
“Did Jeff Sessions Talk To Russia?”
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions will recuse himself from any investigations into matters related to the presidential campaigns. This follows the controversy surrounding his conversations with the Russian ambassador in 2016.”
The Democrats cannot accept that they lost and are now trying to destroy each member of President Trump’s cabinet. I applaud Sen. Sessions’ decision to recuse from the investigations but remain in office. Sen. Pelosi and Sen. Schumer, your plan failed.
“We have now for six months heard story after story come out of unnamed sources say the same thing over and over again and nothing has come of it. We have heard the same people, the same anecdotes, and we heard reports over and over again. At what point, what are you investigating?
The Question becomes at some point, if there is nothing to further investigate, what are you asking people to investigate?”
Fox News: Napoleon Bonaparte once said, “from the sublime to the ridiculous is but a step.”
At a news conference Thursday, the former Speaker of the House denounced Attorney General Jeff Sessions as a liar, pronounced him guilty of perjury, and demanded his resignation. This comes just days after she erroneously accused the Trump White House of obstructing justice. Clearly, she’s on a tear. Who knew the democratic leader, who is not a lawyer, was such an expert on the law?
What did Sessions do to deserve her condemnation? By his account, he told the truth. When asked by Senator Al Franken during his confirmation hearing about “a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government,” Sessions responded as follows:
“I’m not aware of any of those activities. I have been called a surrogate at a time or two in that campaign and I did not have communications with Russians, and I’m unable to comment on it.”
In a subsequent questionnaire issued by Senator Patrick Leahy, Sessions answered “no” when asked the following:
“Several of the President-elect’s nominees or senior advisers have Russian ties. Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after Election Day?”
As posed, the questions specifically ask Sessions about any exchange of information with the Russians pertaining to the presidential campaign and any discussion of the election itself. The attorney general insists he responded honestly. That is, he never spoke with a Russian official about either subject. In a statement, he said, “I never met with any Russian officials to discuss issues of the campaign. I have no idea what this allegation is about. It is false.”
Sessions says he had more than 25 conversations with foreign ambassadors in 2016 as a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. Twice he spoke with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kisylak.
The first meeting occurred at a Heritage Foundation conference, co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, entitled “Global Partners in Diplomacy.” Ambassadors were invited to converse with U.S. officials, including Sessions, about national security issues, trade and other foreign policy matters. Sessions insists he talked with Kishlak only in his capacity as a Senator and never about the campaign or election.
He met with Kisylak two months later. Again, he maintains their conversation had nothing to do with electoral politics and everything to do with carrying out the functions of his job as a U.S. Senator serving on the Armed Services Committee.
Someone might want to tell Pelosi that speaking with the Russian ambassador to the United States is neither exceptional nor incriminating. After all, Kisylak is stationed here. His job is to communicate with U.S. officials. Senators take meetings with foreign diplomats all the time.
Case in point: Democratic Senator Claire McCaskell. After criticizing Sessions for meeting with the Russian ambassador and claiming she had never done so in her 10 years on the Armed Services Committee, it turns out that her own tweets betrayed her. The record shows she bragged on social media about two of her meetings with him. Don’t be ashamed, Claire. It is not a crime to speak to a Russian.
Importantly, there is no evidence to suggest that the attorney general has been untruthful. The only dishonesty comes from Pelosi who has deliberately misrepresented the known facts and defamed Sessions by branding him a liar.
Pelosi is in desperate need of a primer on perjury. As a non-lawyer, she might want to take careful notes.
Under federal law, 18 USC 1621, perjury is knowingly and willfully making a false statement under oath. It is as simple as that. You won’t run out of ink writing it down. You don’t need to be a great thinker to comprehend the plain meaning of the statute.
If Sessions was acting in his capacity as a United State Senator and did not discuss the election campaign, then he did not commit perjury. In other words, his statements to the Judiciary Committee were truthful, not lies as Pelosi claims. Yet, armed with no evidence whatsoever, she has convicted Sessions without the benefit of a trial. Her accusations are not just baseless, given the known facts, but contemptible.
Perhaps Nancy Pelosi is the one who should resign. For being irresponsible. For leveling reckless recriminations and slurs.
Her only defense may be incompetence. It is the oft-used excuse of the Fool.

Sean Spicer During today’s briefing : “Number one priority is making sure that people who pose a threat to this country are immediately dealt with.”
“……….This is consistent with everything the President has talked about, which is prioritizing the people who are here who represent a threat to public safety or have a criminal record. And all this does is lay out the exact procedures to make sure that subgroup of people who pose a threat to our nation because of a conviction, or a violation, or public safety or have criminal record are adjudicated first and foremost. That’s it plain and simple.”
The message from this Whitehouse and from the DHS is that those people who are in this country and pose a threat to public safety or have committed a crime will be the first to go and we will be aggressively making sure that this happens. That is the priority.
DHS Issues New Immigration and Border Guidelines. Here’s Jan Brewer!!
Governor Jan Brewer (R) said that the job to enforce the DHS new immigration and border guidelines: “It is a huge job! If we can get the 287G so that law enforcement locally can access the data system of the federal government of those who are criminals, it would make a huge difference again. The Obama administration took it away from Arizona.”
Binney was an architect of the NSA’s surveillance program. He became a famed whistleblower when he resigned on October 31, 2001 after spending more than 30 years with the agency.
So here is proof that the NSA is tapping President Trump’s phone and others in his administration. William Binney FORMER NSA came out in October saying that the NSA and intelligence agencies were the ones that were behind the DNC leaks, giving information to WIKI LEAKS to disclose to the world, and that they did this in order to stop Hillary Clinton from becoming the next President of the United States. President Trump has made many enemies by defeating Crooked Hillary and the Democrats but he will not allow that to slow him down in moving the U.S. forward.
Obama during his first days granted the National Security Agency more powers in an attempt for them to be able to tap President Trump’s phone calls and those of his cabinet members.
Now William Binney, former high-ranking NSA official, confirms that the NSA is tapping President Trump’s phone calls.
BREITBART: Asked whether he believes the NSA is tapping Trump, Binney replied: “Absolutely. How did they get the phone call between the president and the president of Australia? Or the one that he made with Mexico? Those are not targeted foreigners.”
Binney further contended the NSA may have been behind a data leak that might have revealed that Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser, allegedly misled Vice President Mike Pence and other Trump administration officials about the contents of his phone calls with Russia’s ambassador to Washington.
Regarding Flynn’s case, Binney stated of the NSA:
If they weren’t behind it, they certainly had the data. Now the difference here is that FBI and CIA have direct access inside the NSA databases. So, they may be able to go directly in there and see that material there. And NSA doesn’t monitor that. They don’t even monitor their own people going into databases.
So, they don’t monitor what CIA and FBI do. And there’s no oversight or attempted oversight by any of the committees or even the FISA court. So, any way you look at it, ultimately the NSA is responsible because they are doing the collection on everybody inside the United States. Phone calls. Emails. All of that stuff.
President Trump responded to the leaks and said on February 15, 2017:
BREITBART: During the interview, Binney charged that the NSA was over-funded and out of control. He offered recommendations for how he says Trump can reign in the agency:
He can order that they put a filter on the front end of all their collection that eliminates any U.S. citizens anywhere in the world unless they have a warrant for it. If they don’t, then he has to put people in jail if they violated.
So, I mean, that’s the way to do it. The other way is to cut their budget. I mean they are given too much money anyway. When they are given too much money, they get to do wild and crazy things. And this is wild and crazy. Violations of the Constitution’s 4th, 5th, and 6th amendments.
Gateway Pundits: Our intelligence agencies should not be releasing classified information and they went as far as to release it to the media. As government agencies they are there to serve the government and not to undermine it from within. These Obama plants are actively working to get their POWER BACK.
My Take: Fire everyone left over from Obama, Clinton, Bush-era in all intelligence agencies. Only hire those with allegiance to our President Donald J. Trump and His Administration. We don’t need enemies destroying from within the best President America has ever had. We already have too many enemies on the outside and President Trump has to clean up the shocking, horrible mess that Obama left him in America and all over the world.
God Bless America and God Bless Our President Trump!
President Trump Blasted the Media during a Press Conference, 2/16/2017 – President Trump overturns bill on coal
PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump held a press conference today, Thursday, February 16, 2017. During the conference he told reporters that he wants to see an honest press. More specifically, he told the press that the public does not believe their news anymore. And this is true, this why I have evolved from Trump volunteer Admin to Political blogger. I just cannot stand to see all the fake, biased news being reported against the very best president the United States has ever had. He may not talk or sound the way the elitists and the far left wants him to, but that is why we voted for him. We are delighted to hear one of us speaking his mind openly. We call President Trump the “blue-collar billionaire.” He has spent his entire life working among blue-collar workers and people like you and me. No pretense, all he demands is truth. He is honest, he is real, he is our President.
This was an awesome press conference, he had total control. President Trump was in campaign mode! What a President, what guts, he told the press what we all believe. They are a bunch of losers who make up FAKE NEWS!
I totally agree that Jeff Zucker is a complete jerk. Zucker is anti-President Trump, pro fake news. I pray that President Trump does not confirm the merger between AT&T and CNN. CNN has agents in it that want to manipulate and control the news to fit their agenda, the agenda of the left and the snake, “Divide and Conquer.” I am not a scholar on this, I just listened and researched. What I know is AT&T and Time Warner are reportedly in advanced talks about a potential deal. Time Warner is the parent company to CNN. Any merger would have to be reviewed and approved by federal antitrust regulators. Too much power will be consolidated to spew even more lies across more venues.
All I know is that in PA, in NJ everywhere I go, CNN is the only resource that is on. CNN manipulates minds to react to and believe lies. Anti-American rhetoric we don’t need in America. We are all fighting to maintain our democracy and CNN is fighting that. They elevate others and denigrate the American population. I don’t like being treated like this. This is our nation and we, the people should have control, not foreign agents. I totally agree with President Trump.
The left’s only resource to attach our beloved President Trump, is to create fake news relating to RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA. The are pushing this narrative to cover up what is really going on. President Trump is deporting ILLEGAL CRIMINALS that do not have the right to be here. He is working hard right now for us Americans.
Moments Ago: President Donald J. Trump. signs legislation undoing coal mining regulation. Trump overturns bill on coal mining debris
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump has put the brakes on a regulation blocking coal mining debris from being dumped into nearby streams.
Trump called the regulation a “job-killing rule” before he signed a measure to overturn it. Lawmakers from coal-mining states stood close by, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va. and Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va.
Several coal miners and energy company executives also attended the White House signing ceremony. Republicans and some Democrats argued that the rule could eliminate thousands of coal-related jobs. They said the rule also ignored dozens of existing federal, state and local regulations. The Interior Department said in December when it announced the rule that 6,000 miles of streams and 52,000 acres of forests would be protected.”
I am proud of my President Trump and We all support him more than ever. We believe in him because we prayed for him. And we know God answered our prayer. That’s why we believe in him and we know he has the power of God behind him.
I DON’T LIKE SEEING MY PRESIDENT attacked and discredited. His Honor, His Power, His Prestige, His position as President is being attacked and it has to stop.
Keep praying prayer warriors, keep fighting in every way possible. I pray God gives me more vision, but through these eyes, what I see from the 60’s to now. It frightens me. Keep praying and fighting patriots. We have a long road to go.
Follow me on TruthHerald.com thank you.
The NSA is again violating the law and is now spying on the President and those around him. That is extremely dangerous, not only because the NSA Continues to be run by loyalists to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and the entire leftist crowd of the last 8 years. They showed their hostility in the days leading up to President Trump’s inauguration by trying to discredit him, but it’s also being run by individuals who think they are above the law. Who are in fact more powerful than the President of the United States.
We now have the big brother in effect, and when these agencies are spying on the American people. Notwithstanding, the fact that they are now spying on the President of the United States and his people. It’s illegal and dangerous in a free republic.
THIS IS SERIOUS PEOPLE. THE NSA IS VIOLATING THE LAW. IT’S A THREAT TO OUR VERY REPUBLIC, WE MAY HAVE TO RISE UP AND TAKE OVER OUR NATION.
OBAMA’S ARMY OF ALINSKY TRAINED AGITATORS 32,000 strong – ORGANIZING FOR AMERICA (OFA) is Trying to Impeach Donald Trump in “Secret”
So, America, what should we do with and to Obama this time around. No one bothered him while he was president, if you can call him that! We were warned to give him a chance because he is black. Really, well, now that we know who and what he is, what should we legally do to put this Treasonous ball of community organizing hoodlum in prison for good, and throw away the damned key.
When protests erupted over President Trump’s Refugee Executive Order, Former President Barack Obama said: “He’s Heartened by the demonstrations.” That was a message to his troops, an army of agitators with one goal, sabotage Trump’s Presidency.
Paul Sperry, New York Post Columnist, and Author of: “The Great American Bank Robbery” told Fox & Friends today that Organizing for America (OFA) is behind all these protests throughout the United States. That they are not spontaneous, they are pre-manufactured by OFA and OFA is Obama. It is a non-profit organization officially tied to Obama. He is behind all the protests breaking out across the country.
“They want you to believe that this is some broad-based sudden uprising against President Trump, and it’s not, it’s just Obama and his radical activists.”
Sperry: “According to tax records they (OFA) have an army of over 32,000 hard-core Alinsky trained agitators and they are training thousands more as we speak and they are have a training summit coming up in March. Obama is building a shadow government to sabotage Trump at every turn and he has an army to do it.”
Fox News: “You know when something is up when Senator Jason Chaffetz wins his district with 73% of the vote, yet at a town hall, 70% of the people were screaming at him about “Obama Care”?
That was not spontaneous, that was right out of their training manual. They have a whole section on how to target town halls and ambush Republicans.
