  • “National Defense Resources Preparedness” executive order: Power grab or mere update?

    We’re getting a lot of e-mail this weekend about an executive order issued on Friday afternoon by President Obama titled “National Defense Resources Preparedness.” While the timing of the EO is curious — why send it out on a Friday afternoon when an administration is usually trying to sneak bad news past the media? — the general impact of it is negligible. This EO simply updates another EO (12919) that had been in place since June 1994, and amended several times since.
  • One executive order cancels another

    No matter what, the future is here, and President Trump is one by one by scratching those Obama executive orders. At this pace, President Obama's résumé will be a total blank under "accomplishments." It will simply say he was inaugurated in 2009, was re-elected in 2012 and left office in 2017. There will be very little in between because he did so much by executive order rather than laws passed by Congress. "The 'Blank' Presidency" may be the title of a future book about this time in office.
  • To Hamas and Back - The Robert Malley Story

    Today the hot topic in the conservative blogsphere is the apparent return of Robert Malley. He was Obama’s senior foreign-policy adviser who had been caught meeting regularly with Hamas which Obama had pledged never to do and was subsequently thrown under the bus back in May of this year. Two days after the election he was dispatched by Obama to meet with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Other reports have him leaving for the Middle East just hours after the election results. There is no confirmation from the Obama campaign on Malley but many sources are...
  • Trump signs new immigration EO; pro-terrorist lawyers (and politicians) spring into action

    Round 2. What you're about to find out is that all the hulabaloo about Trump's first immigration order had nothing to do with the flaws in the order. It simply had to do with the fact that it was an order and Trump made it, and that it in any way bent policy to acknowledge radical Islamists coming from certain countries represent a terror threat. The first one was not a Muslim ban. Neither is the second. The first one had problems but was entirely within Trump's scope of authority to implement, and should have been allowed to stand by...
  • Now We Know: Those 'Spontaneous' Anti-Trump Airport Protests Weren't Spontaneous At All

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 2/3/2017 | John Merline
    There was always something fishy about the outbreak of "spontaneous" protests at airports around the country in the immediate wake of President Trump's executive order pausing visas and refugees from terror-prone countries. Not that you'd suspect anything from the way they were covered. Nearly every story published over that weekend stated without equivocation that the protests were an unplanned and visceral reaction to Trump's executive order. Examples: "Spontaneous Protests Hit Airports Across America Following Trump's Executive Order" "Protest Grows 'Out of Nowhere' at Kennedy Airport" "The senseless cruelty of the executive order has led to spontaneous protests at many of...

    REAKING: President Donald Trump has fired Obama appointee, and acting Attorney General, Sally Yates for refusing to enforce a legal order. Yates has been replaced with Dana Boente, US Attorney for the Eastern District of VA who will now act as Attorney General until nominee Senator Jeff Sessions has been confirmed.
  • The Number of Trump's Executive Orders Is Irrelevant

    You would think Democrats have enough to fight President Trump on that they wouldn’t have to resort to stupid, easily dismissed talking points. But again and again, on cable news and social media, the refrain is repeated: Trump is “ruling by executive order” and Republicans are hypocrites for cheering him on when they condemned Obama for – purportedly – doing the same thing. It is thus necessary to repeat an elementary point that we’ve made over the years: The number of executive orders issued by the president is irrelevant; the issue is the substance of executive orders – specifically,...

    The looks on the hosts faces... Things are about to change. In a little over 17 days Obama will be gone, Trump will be in office, and CNN’s nightmare scenario will begin. On the first day of the new administration, the government will get smaller. We don’t know to what degree it will shrink but, thanks to incoming Press Secretary Sean Spicer, we do know that a raft of Obama’s regulations will be eliminated on day one.
  • Trump To Begin Presidency By Repealing 70% Of Obama’s Legacy

    US President-elect Donald Trump may reverse up to 70 percent of President Barack Obama’s executive orders, practically erasing the legacy of the first African-American head of state, Former House speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox. Obama, who signed over 260 executive orders in his two terms in office, urged Trump, who will be inaugurated on January 20, not to circumvent Congress when trying to enact his agenda. Obama used his executive powers to push through labor, climate and immigration reforms after Congress refused to go along with his proposed programs.

    It started innocently enough: Andreas H. Koertel, 46, was pulled over in a traffic stop. Then things got hairy in hurry. Turns out Koertel, a German national, was in possession of meth and illegal weapons, according to the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, so he was booked into jail on multiple charges, KXTV-TV reports. Wisely the deputies called the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department to see if they could check out a property in Rio Linda where Koertel had been staying. But detectives encountered quite a bit more than they bargained for Friday. Here’s what they found, KTXL-TV reports: Several explosive materials,...

    White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer conceded that he fears a President Ted Cruz will overturn President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty, perhaps signaling that Cruz represents the greatest threat to the progressive left. “Our first 100 days we spent a lot of time signing executive orders undoing what [President George W.] Bush did, and I would like not to be sitting on a beach somewhere reading about President [Ted] Cruz doing that to us, so it’s very important to us,” Pfeiffer told the Wall Street Journal on Friday. Earlier in the day, Pfeiffer declared that Obama’s executive amnesty was one...
  • Ron Paul’s Soros Defense Plan

    01/02/2012 8:38:41 AM PST · by mnehring · 89 replies
    It was recently observed that Ron Paul was to the left of Obama on national security and the best evidence for that statement can be found when one year ago Ron Paul joined forces with Barney Frank​ on a proposal to gut national defense via a panel of experts, quite a few of whom were tied to George Soros​. In July 2010, Barney Frank and Ron Paul co-authored a Huffington Post article rolling out their Sustainable Defense Task Force. The Task Force “consisting of experts on military expenditures that span the ideological spectrum” would recommend a trillion dollars in defense...
