Trump Syria Riddle Me This — Conventional American forces landed in Syria in March 2017, to crush the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
Airstrikes and Special Forces engagements had been occurring against the Jihadis since September 2014 but they were generally ineffective and by December 2015 ISIS was in control of territory containing 8 million persons.
When President Trump took office, though, things got real. By December 2017 ISIS was crushed — at least in Iraq and Syria.
Mandalay Bay Gun Free Zone, CAIR Supporter — Noted sports handicapper, television producer, political activist and long-time Las Vegas resident Wayne Allyn Root, has interesting questions and observations regarding the Oct. 1 Route 91 Harvest festival shooting.
Mandalay Bay, the hotel-casino from where the killer fired his shots, is a gun-free zone.
Including the security guards.
Root says that when the facility was acquired by MGM Resorts International one of the first acts by CEO Jim Murren was a gun ban for guests and the disarming of most of the security guards.
Root also noted that MGM Resorts lets high-roller clients use the service elevators, a policy not allowed at other Vegas hotels.
Root also notes that if the shooting is called a criminal act rather than a terroristic one, MGM might save millions in insurance payouts.
Root says that Murren was appointed by Barack Obama to Homeland Security Council albeit we think he means the National Infrastructure Advisory Council which is tasked with advising the president on security of the critical infrastructure sectors and their information systems.
Root also notes that from July through September Murren sold off more than 80 percent of his MGM stock and that there was $200 million in insider selling from officers and directors of MGM in September.
The articles a good search provides are endless related to the recent decade of Democrat calls to violence. Does the Democrats proclivity for bloodshed attracts those who advocate murder and mayhem to their side or did they advocate violence in order to gain the support of Hezbollah and its military wing Hamas (the Islamic Resistance) CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood?
Obama gave $33 billion to Iran, the world’s number one sponsor of Hezbollah terror on his way out the White House door. Democrat leadership did nothing to stop him. It was paid in gold and cash. How best to kick back American taxpayer dollars to our socialist democrats or to pay for influence in Hezbollah, one hand washing the other.
If Iran is the number one sponsor of terrorism, what does that make America who is now a huge contributor to that nation? Democrat-led American governments have become an important financial supporter of terror around the world.
This substantive evidence underwrites the Democrat elite’s financial and philosophical support of terror. In fact, they have not shied away from supporting domestic terror. Black Lives Matter has proven their affection for violence in the US. They spent the summer of 2016 inciting riots in cities around the country and warring against police departments over false tales of police brutality. Occupy Wall Street rioters had the support of the attempted mass murderer of US Senators in Alexandria, James Hodgkinson.
So when US officials call for “taking to the streets” (Obama, Loretta Lynch, Tim Kaine) have no doubt as to the violence they are advocating.
Kerns Opposes Missile Attack On Syria — Dale Kerns of Ridley, who is running as a Libertarian in the 2018 United States Senate race for the seat held by Democrat Bob Casey, says President Trump did not have congressional authority to fire missiles yesterday (April 6) at a Syrian government airbase that had been used to launch chemical weapons against civilians. Kerns is not alone. Others, however, argue that the action is justified by the Authorization for Use of Military ForcepassedSept. 14, 2001 which has allowed previous administrations to launch strikes throughout the Mideast. As the U.S already has troops fighting in Syria, it’s hard to see that it’s not.
Here is Kerns statement:
Our campaign is against military intervention as a preemptive strike, and without congressional approval. The United States Constitution gives Congress the power to go to war, not the President.
Since 2014 we have been bombing Islamic State targets without Congressional authorization under President Obama’s executive action. Now President Trump has turned airstrikes toward the Syrian Regime, again without Congressional approval which is unconstitutional. Article 1 Section 8 Clause 11 of the Constitution explicitly gives Congress this power not the POTUS. This dictator like behavior should be condemned no matter which party is in power. Congressional approval assures by best possible measures that the Republic is at work, and the branch closest to the people are held accountable for such actions. At this point we are carelessly going into war, without a known plan, without strategic measures, and without an end result. America deserves better. We deserve to carefully weigh all options, consequences, and countermeasures to those results.
Trump Explains Law To Judges — Donald Trump just finished (Feb. 8) a powerful and inspiring speech to the National Sheriffs’ Association. He praised law enforcement and said those involved had a friend in the White House. He warned they most hold themselves to high standards, remove the bad actors among them and be good role models.
He said youth murders were a national tragedy and that every child — even those in Detroit, Chicago and Baltimore — had a right to play outside in peace and attend school without fear, or pressure to join a gang.
He said he wasn’t joking about building the wall on the Mexican border and that it was being designed as he spoke.
Probably most significantly he took on the activist judges and pundits snarling his ban on those seeking entry from seven terrorist-controlled nations. It was about time. Thank God he has the spine. He read the law INA 212 (f) verbatim:
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.
He cracked a cracked joke about the pronoun “he” being politically incorrect and noted that what was being discussed by the pundit/legal class had nothing to do with the perfectly clear statement that he read.
He said he had planned to give a month’s, and then a week’s, notice regarding his ban but was dissuaded by his security advisors as it would have allowed terrorists planning entry to move up their timetable.
As the President implied, it is political-based decisions by judges that are causing the courts to come into disrespect, not anything he is saying.
In a side note, Chester County’s wonderful Sheriff Bunny Welsh was seen worldwide sitting next to the President, yesterday, when he met with leaders of theNational Sheriffs’ Association at the White House.
And Pennsylvania law — Act 38 of 2012 — specifically prevents the state from being in compliance.
Something is obviously going to have to give, and it will be interesting to see which way. Many civil libertarians, including Evangelist Christians, oppose REAL ID on 10th Amendment grounds and from a fear it will lead to a national identity card. Those primarily concerned about illegal immigration, however, support it.
President-Elect Trump was strongly supported by both sides.

Khizr Khan Emotions And Policy — Khizr Khan, a Harvard lawyer and Muslim, made a blistering attack on Donald Trump, July 28, during the Democrat National Convention concerning Trump’s concern about sleeper terrorists entering this country under the guise of Muslim refugees.
“Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims,” he said as wife, Ghazala, stood silently by his side. “He disrespects other minorities, women, judges, even his own party leadership. He vows to build walls and ban us from this country.”
The last sentence implies a permanent ban and isn’t true, but never mind that.
The Khans’ son Humayun lost his life while serving in Iraq in 2004 receiving a Bronze star and Purple Heart for his heroism. The media is trying to tie the label of cowardly chickenhawk on The Donald, which is ironic since by 2004 when young Humayun died he was speaking out against the war, and rather prophetically.
Khan made the point that there are Muslims who can be loyal, good and patriotic Americans.
This is not religious argument. Nobody is talking about vetting people concerning theological beliefs about the nature, or even existence, of God. This is a value argument. Do we have unalienable rights or can someone kill another simply because he disagrees with his belief about the nature of God?
We had better start vetting people as to whether they hold the latter view and keep them from coming here. Further, we had better start teaching those already here who hold this view that they are seriously wrong and that believing murder is OK for religious reasons will not be tolerated.
And with regard to diversity and such, where are the Catholic cathedrals and Baptist churches and Jewish synagogues in Mecca? Maybe we should start pushing that these things be allowed there, hmmm?
If one wants to save this country Trump is the only choice this November no matter how obnoxious your “betters” say he is.
Prayers For Police After Dallas — As information comes in from Dallas — the latest is five police killed and six wounded from last night’s (July 7) sniper attack at a Black Lives Matter protest — we continue to keep all men and women in law enforcement in our prayers.
There is no liberty without law. The way our society is organized the only time the large, organized, armed mass that is the state can interfere in one’s life is when words have been put on paper with due process allowing them to do so in specific instances.
Without law, the strong — whether it is an organized armed mass or a mob or a young, 230-pound male — can oppress one at random.
Liberty is dead when that happens.
So honor and respect and pray for all those who put on a uniform or carry a badge to risk their life and deal with unpleasant people to enforce the law and keep us safe.
The attack at the protest was well planned. While details are yet to come about the killers, who are now reported to be in custody, we are real curious as to their theology.
