I Traveled To See George H.W. Bush
Honored At The US Capitol–I Was
Stunned By The Crowds

Daily Caller, by Benny Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/6/2018 6:42:04 PM

WASHINGTON — It was bitterly cold and dark on Capitol Hill as I walked the brick sidewalks leading to the U.S. Capitol. I was heading to pay my respects to President George H.W. Bush, who was lying in state. I have covered major funerals in Washington and seen my fair share of grandiose state events. However, nothing prepared me for what I saw as I approached the Capitol that night. The process for a president to lie in state is standardized. There is an official arrival ceremony, followed by remarks from gathered political leaders. Family, friends and members of the

I expected HW to parachute into the funeral gathering. Nevertheless, HW was a WWII veteran, and earned respect. He was also a good President, and should have been re-elected to a second term. The nation would have been much better served. Perot divided the vote, knew he couldn´t win, and knew he was delivering the election to Clinton. The Democrats can always stoop lower.

I wonder what goes through the Clinton´s minds when they attend such an event. Bush was a good and decent man. Obviously loved by his family. Respected by world leaders, and Americans everywhere across the United States. I have images of women lining up to view Clinton´s body with a hat pin in their hands. Hoping to jab it into his thigh to make sure he is really dead. What positive thing could you say about such a person as Clinton that would not be a bold faced lie? I was touched by the ceremonies honoring Mr. Bush. I hope Megan McCain watched it and realizes what a disservice she did to her father´s memory turning his funeral into a political circus.

I want to believe that Americans are thirsting to feel and live the way things used to be. Once it was perfectly normal to show respect, to be openly patriotic, and to raise your children to love our country. This week´s beautiful journey in the Way Back Machine was just plain wonderful.

The Dubai Ports World controversy began in February 2006 and rose to prominence as a national security debate in the United States.At issue was the sale of port management businesses in six major U.S. seaports to a company based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and whether such a sale would compromise port security.

Green Beret hero charged with murder
after telling Bret Baier how he killed
Taliban bomb-maker in 2016 interview
BizPac Review, by Vivek Saxena    Original Article

While the job of a Green Beret entails eliminating U.S. enemies both here and abroad, one member of the 66-year-old special operations force is now being prosecuted for having done exactly that. According to reports, once-decorated Army Maj. Mathew L. Golsteyn has been charged in the premeditated murder of an Afghani bomb maker suspected of murdering two Marines. The charge stems from actions the former Green Beret took on the field while deployed eight years ago and words he spoke with Fox News host Bret Baier six years afterward.

Thousands of volunteers gathered at Arlington National Cemetery Saturday for the annual holiday wreath-laying event that pays tribute to those who served—and died-- in America’s wars. Every December, Wreaths Across America places wreaths on the graves at Arlington and other veterans cemeteries. “Spending a rainy Saturday morning helping with Wreaths Across America at Arlington!!” Jessica Moyer told her followers on Facebook. “Such a humbling experience.” Last year more than 75,000 volunteers placed wreaths at 245,000 Arlington gravesites.

President Trump announced Saturday that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will be leaving the administration.

As I noted here on June 30, 2017 Michael Flynn and Andrew McCabe have a past that predates the Trump presidency, one that provides ample motivation for the perjury trap that McCabe and James Comey set up after Flynn’s illegal unmasking. McCabe had a personal grudge against Flynn and the perjury trap was his revenge.It explains why McCabe would entrap Flynn in a seemingly harmless interview about contacts with Flynn’s Russian counterparts, advising Flynn he didn’t need to bring a lawyer along to complicate things: The federal judge who will sentence Lt.-Gen. Michael Flynn for lying to the FBI has

Incoming House Intel Chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) can’t wait to abuse his subpoena power and plans to investigate Trump’s personal finances by obtaining the President’s Deutsche Bank records. Schiff believes President Trump’s so-called “financial interests” in Russia are guiding his foreign policy and the answers he is looking for are in Trump’s bank records. This is the modern day Democrat party – unleash the power of government on political adversaries to launch fishing expeditions in search of a crime. We saw this before under Joseph Stalin.

Some Democrats in Congress continue to further sully the image of America’s federal lawmakers. These Democrats fall all over themselves in their intramural competition to see which one of them can behave the most unconscionably on border protection issues. To the naked eye — as well as to one peering through something as large as the Hubble Telescope — these same anger-management failures of the Democrat persuasion can’t resist taking every imaginable opportunity to inaccurately and unfairly condemn the Trump administration. For what? For everything under the sun that goes wrong —or that goes right

As TGP previously reported in February, according to Mike Cernovich, McCabe altered far left FBI investigator Peter Strzok’s 302 notes on his interview with General Michael Flynn. And then McCabe destroyed the evidence. n early May Senator Grassley demanded the FBI and DOJ produce the transcript of Flynn’s intercepted calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak and the 302’s by May 25th. The DOJ and FBI ignored him. Grassley then concluded his letter by reiterating his request to schedule an interview with the second special agent who was present at Flynn’s interrogation, Joe Pientka, after push back from the DOJ.

Mueller probe is costing

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe has cost taxpayers nearly $25 million, according to a Justice Department report Friday. Nearly $4.6 million of that was shelled out in the six months between April 1 and Oct. 31. That’s a slight uptick from the $4.5 million the Mueller probe cost between Oct. 1, 2017, and March 31. President Trump, who has dismissed the Mueller probe as a “hoax” and a “witch hunt,” has blasted its cost. In June, he wrote on Twitter “the Russian Hoax Investigation has now cost our government over $17 million and going up fast.” The figures were

On Friday morning Hillary Clinton responded to a court order forced by Judicial Watch to answer more questions about the setting up of her private server. Judicial Watch appeared in a DC federal court last month on a motion to compel more testimony from Hillary Clinton as well as to make public video recordings of depositions of top Clinton aides such as Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills. The court ruled that Hillary Clinton must answer more questions about the setting up of her private server under oath. As expected, Hillary Clinton responded to the court order with her usual arrogance

Donald Trump´s suffocating presence

Another day, another avalanche of news about the President: berating Democratic leaders on camera; unceremoniously announcing the departure of his chief of staff; calling his former Secretary of State “dumb as a rock.” It never lets up. Trump is a ubiquitous, suffocating presence in American life. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. The modern presidency is the framers’ worst nightmare, a flatly unconstitutional concentration of power. As the Trump era has made abundantly clear, the office itself — its size, scope, and prominence in American life — is the driving force of dysfunction in our politics.

Federal prosecutors in New York are investigating President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee amid suspicion that a portion of the $107 million it raised was misspent, according to a report. The Wall Street Journal states the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is in the beginning stages of probing whether the committee’s most prominent donors made sizable contributions “in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions.”The Journal reports: The investigation partly arises out of materials seized in the federal probe of former Trump

In October, Warren released a DNA test in an attempt to combat President Donald Trump’s many attacks on her alleged Native American ancestry.

Going all in on attacking President Trump isn’t proving to be a particularly effective business strategy for media outlets. The Weekly Standard, a 28-year old neoconservative institution, is reportedly headed towards dissolution after its founder, Bill Kristol, devoted almost three years of work to attacking the President and his supporters. It’s not just Kristol. The entire world of clickbait Trump-hate seems to be in jeopardy, including sites that cater to the liberal base. The same week that The Weekly Standard’s troubles broke, Vanity Fair dropped a bombshell report about the struggles faced by those hip, millennial-targeted left-wing rags

If we want to stop climate change, we’ll have to stop pumping out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In order to do that, we’ll need to replace all the sources of carbon pollution—like fossil fuel plants and combustion vehicles—with clean, renewable alternatives. But there’s a problem: According to a new study, we might not have enough materials to make that happen. Plenty of high-tech electronic components, like solar panels, rechargeable batteries, and complex circuits, require specific rare metals.

California Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye told CALmatters that she had been deliberating her decision for a while but made up her mind after watching the backlash following multiple sexual assault allegations leveled against Kavanaugh. Christine Blasey Ford, a professor from Palo Alto, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, alleging that Kavanaugh assaulted her in the 1980s when they were both high school students.

A federal judge in Texas late Friday threw the health coverage of some 20 million Americans in limbo by ruling Obamacare must be scrapped because Congress struck the penalty for failing to obtain insurance coverage. The invalidation of the landmark 2010 law is certain to send shock waves through the U.S. health system and Washington after a midterm election seen in part as a rebuke to Republican efforts to tear down Obamacare.

The Weekly Standard will be no more. There is no real reason we are witnessing the magazine’s demise other than deep pettiness and a personal desire for bureaucratic revenge on the part of a penny-ante Machiavellian who works for its parent company. There would at least be a larger meaning to the Standard’s end if it were being killed because it was hostile to Donald Trump. But I do not believe that is the case.
