Trump’s Motorcade Cut Off by Man in Van, Secret Service Intervenes, Look What Happens



Trump’s motorcade has been met with some detractors for the second time this month.

At the beginning of November, Virginia resident Juli Briskman was riding her bike when Trump’s motorcade drive by – prompting her to flip the bird at President Trump (though more likely a random secret service agent).

She was quickly fired from her job after the photo went viral (and her identity became known), but largely had a positive end to her fifteenth minute of fame. Megyn Kelly invited Briskman on her show to discuss the “like totally inspiring” story in a desperate attempt to save her ratings, and Briskman did raise over $130,000 on a GoFundMe to keep her relaxed as she finds a new job.

She’s apparently planning on suing her employer to fully monetize her fame before she’s out of the public eye forever. Given that she broke company rules, it’s doubtful that’ll get far.

That was early November, and now it’s another day, another triggered leftist who can’t bear being within a fifty-foot radius of Donald Trump.

According to America News Hub, President Donald Trump and his family were in Florida celebrating at Mar-a-Lago over the Thanksgiving weekend. But there was a moment of some concern for the Secret Service.
Trump and his wife took time out on Thanksgiving to visit a nearby Coast Guard station to thank them for their service and bring them some food for the holiday.
Trump also took time out for some golf. And it was when he was coming back from a round of golf, on his way back to Mar-A-Lago that an angry driver tried to cut off President Trump’s motorcade and local law enforcement had to intervene to stop him.

The man was in a red vehicle, and was pulled over by local law enforcement. The driver reportedly made a number of obscene gestures and screamed a number of expletives at police after being pulled over.

It’s not clear what his intent was – but obviously nothing favorable.

A few minutes later, protesters with no connection to the previous incident gathered in front of the bridge leading to Palm Beach, with one of them carrying a sign reading “Don the Con man.” There were also supporters present too on the bridge, with signs reading “Trump Strong,” “I Love President Trump,” “I Support Prez. Trump Bigly,” among other slogans.

Surprisingly, there are no reports that the driver responsible was taken into custody despite the strong possibility that he had attempted to put the President and his security at risk of an accident.

That’s not as surprising however as the fact that the media is still pushing the narrative that it’s Trump supporters being driven to violence, supposedly emboldened and empowered by our new President. One hundred percent of the political violence since the election has been entirely from one side of the political spectrum – and it hasn’t been the right.

BREAKING News About James Comey… He Was Just IMPLICATED!



Some people always thought there was something suspicious with former FBI head James Comey and today’s news might finally implicate him in some rather disturbing allegations. While Hillary Clinton tries to pretend that he was one of the countless actors out to get her during the 2016 presidential election, anyone paying attention saw the man doing might have been secretly doing her a massive favor far more profound than we could imagine and it was possibly done right before our own very eyes.

Was the FBI NOT supposed to investigate her private email server? That would be just a tad too obvious, don’t you think? Instead, they put on an “investigation” for the show of it, but that was over before it truly got started. We’ve known this since August, when a letter written by Senators Chuck Grassley and Sen. Lindsey Graham to the new FBI Director Chris Wray, claiming to have seen evidence showing Comey began drawing up statements on closing the investigation months before he cleared Clinton. By then we had already known that Comey had drafted his letter exonerating Hillary before the FBI interviewed her. Very strange how that works.

That’s why the facts hardly matched the punishment when Comey decided not to instruct the DOJ to press charges. Comey began by pointing out that Hillary had potentially lied about why she had a private email server, lied about not sending and receiving classified information on it, and said that someone might have hacked her devices. Comey made it clear that an ordinary citizen under similar circumstances would face a harsher punishment – but they couldn’t prove that Hillary intended to break the law.

I suppose everyone convicted of involuntary manslaughter should complain? They didn’t intend for their crime to happen.

A new development comes our way.

According to Fox News, newly released documents obtained by Fox News reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited numerous times before his public announcement, in ways that seemed to water down the bureau’s findings considerably.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to the FBI on Thursday that shows the multiple edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized statement.
In an early draft, Comey said it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account. That was changed later to say the scenario was merely “possible.”
Another edit showed language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.” This is a key legal distinction.
Johnson, writing about his concerns in a letter Thursday to FBI Director Christopher Wray, said the original “could be read as a finding of criminality in Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified material.”

Removing language that could portray Hillary in a criminal light might be a bit of a problem, right? Probably not something a man with a vendetta against her would do.

Johnson continued, “The edited statement deleted the reference to gross negligence – a legal threshold for mishandling classified material – and instead replaced it with an exculpatory sentence.”

Had the reference to gross negligence remained, it wouldn’t have been possible to make the case that Hillary didn’t know she was breaking the law because it would’ve been irrelevant. Many believe Hillary knowingly violated the law. That could be why she apparently lied to the FBI so frequently about the details of her private email server. The 33,000 missing emails seemed suspect,  as well as the fact that she faced zero charges for destroying evidence.

When it came to classified information, Comey edited a reference to the “sheer volume” of classified information discussed on email. A “sheer volume” that a hacker could’ve very well laid his eyes on and used for something malevolent.

“While the precise dates of the edits and identities of the editors are not apparent from the documents, the edits appear to change the tone and substance of Director Comey’s statement in at least three respects,” Johnson wrote Thursday.

That includes, Johnson said, “repeated edits to reduce Secretary Clinton’s culpability in mishandling classified information.”

In conclusion, the edits to Comey’s public statements “made months prior to the conclusion of the FBI’s investigation of Secretary Clinton’s conduct, had a significant impact on the FBI’s public evaluation of the implications of her actions.

It’s great that Hillary Clinton lost the election despite not being held responsible for any of her actions. It would’ve been more satisfying to watch her campaign from a jail cell wearing a fashionable orange jumpsuit.

There’s some hard news about John McCain’s health, and it’s not exactly pretty. He has been taking a turn for the worse while dealing with his cancer. Doctors diagnosed with glioblastoma, a brain tumor, in September. At the time, he called it a “very poor prognosis.” He’s been diagnosed with an aggressive type of cancer with a low percentage of survival rates. The severity of cancer, plus McCain’s old age, aren’t complimentary factors. “Some say 3 percent, some say 14 percent. You know, it’s—it’s a very poor prognosis” he said during an interview with 60 Minutes at the time. “So I just said, ‘I understand. Now we’re going to do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can.’ And at the same time celebrate with gratitude a life well-lived.

According to the Gateway Pundit, “sources in the Senate tell CNN they have been worried about Sen. John McCain recently, following a week when the Arizona Republican was kept from the Senate to address side effects from his brain cancer treatment. The sources described McCain as looking increasingly frail and said he has not spoken up in recent GOP meetings the way he had before, in addition to his absence this week for treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center. One source said that McCain always used to speak up in these meetings, and that he hasn’t at all recently. The source was not commenting on McCain’s mental acuity, but on his energy level, and pointing out that his lack of participation was not normal. One well known side effect of cancer treatments is fatigue. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, McCain’s closest friend in the Senate, said he spoke with Cindy McCain on Wednesday about her husband’s health.”

ABC says that McCain is also receiving treatment for the side effects of his cancer therapy. Graham told ABC that “He’s receiving treatment for the side effects of the therapy. I feel pretty good about the way the treatment is affecting his underlying cancer. But the treatment has a downside. So he’s tryin’ to get rested up. I’m very confident he’ll come back and continue to participate for a long time to come.

He’s had a heck of a Senate schedule, and I hope he’ll take some time to regroup, do a little rehabilitation on his leg and come back,” Graham said.

McCain said that he wants to return to work “as soon as possible,” and that’s crucial for voting on all the dirty-details when it comes to tax reform. Both ailing Republican senators John McCain and Thad Cochran missed votes this week, and there was some uncertainty when it came to reconciling the Senate and House’s tax plans. Marco Rubio, for instance, said he’d vote against the bill if negotiators failed to expand the child tax credit.

Many members of the Armed Services panel said they hadn’t talked to McCain recently and didn’t know when he’d be back. They described him as a fighter:

With Sen. McCain, he could show up at any time and just say, ‘If we’ve got work to do, I’m going to be there,’” said Sen. Mike Rounds, R-S.D. “That’s his style.”

Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., called McCain “a brave guy,” adding that the former Navy pilot “will do his duty to the best of his ability. And on this tax bill, that means to get here if you can, and I think he will.

The absence of McCain and Cochran, who is recovering from a urinary tract infection, is creating uncertainty for when the Senate will vote again on tax reform. Given that Republicans hold a 52 seat-majority, and Bob Corker opposes tax reform, Republicans only have 49 “yes” votes without McCain and Cochran. An initial vote was expected as early as next Monday, with the Senate expected to pass the Bill then send it to the House on Tuesday for a final vote. After that, it’s up to President Donald Trump to add his signature to the bill, and then America has finally seen sweeping tax reform for the first time since the Reagan administration.

McCain can end his career by supporting President Donald Trump instead of being labeled a RINO as that’s what his critics consistently label him.

BREAKING NEWS! Trump FINALLY Did it! Obama Won’t Be Happy About This



President Trump came through with a major victory for the American military and the people are loving every bit of it. It’s unquestionable that America’s military strength decreased significantly under former president Barack Obama. That was to be expected with a Commander in Chief who’s idea of “victory” is “withdrawal” – leading to a resurgence in the Taliban’s ranks, Al-Qaeda carrying out more attacks than ever, and the spawn of their “JV-team”, ISIS. They were a JV-team before Obama.

By 2015 the Army’s manpower had been down 10 percent since Obama took office, according to the Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal, leading to the Air Force running their smallest and oldest force of combat aircraft in American history. When it came to fighting terrorists, Obama blocked 75 percent of airstrikes against ISIS over fears of civilian casualties. Meanwhile, the Marines were running with only 2/3 the number of battalions in order to meet day-to-day operations.

It hasn’t taken much time for President Donald Trump to reverse that part of the Obama legacy. Trump proposed a $54 billion hike in military spending after taking office, and just signed a budget authorizing it. Trump signed into law a defense policy bill authorizing a $700 billion military budget, including additional spending to counter the North Korean nuclear threat. To fully take effect, lawmakers will have to rollback a 2011 law that limits federal spending on the defense budget to $549 billion in 2018. Needless to say, Republicans do have the majorities needed to successfully pull through on this.

It will be a positive for American national security as those among the ranks of the armed forces will see the benefits materialize to them directly.  For instance, according to American Military News, the bill “will give the U.S. Military its largest pay raise in seven years, since 2010.” If that isn’t amazing, then what is?

“The budget calls for an additional 20,000 troops; funding for weapons systems, retention pay and bonuses; and repairs for Navy ships such as the USS John S. McCain and the USS Fitzgerald, which were both involved in deadly collisions earlier this year.

This is the largest proposed military budget to date, particularly the most significant budget to be passed during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The budget also allocates $26.2 billion for 14 new ships, including three littoral combat ships; and flexible spending for $5.9 billion for the Virginia-class submarine programs; $5.6 billion for Arleigh Burke-class destroyers; $4.4 billion for aircraft carriers; $3.1 billion for Army helicopters; and $1.9 billion for 24 F/A-18 Super Hornets.

The plan calls for 7,500 Active Duty members, 500 National Guard members and 500 Reservists for the Army; 4,000 Active Duty and 1,000 Reserves for the Navy; 4,100 Active Duty, 900 Guard and 800 Reserves for the Air Force; and 1,000 Active Duty Marines.”

One addition that Bitcoin lovers will be happy to see – the bill calls for the Department of Defense to investigate “potential offensive and defensive cyber applications of blockchain technology and other distributed database technologies.

Trump got more than what he asked for in some regards. The bill includes 90 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters, while Trump only asked for 70. On the other hand, the plan to create a new “Space Corps” as part of the Air Force didn’t make the final cut.

After signing the bill into law, Trump gave a speech in which he stated that “today with the signing of this defense bill, we accelerate the process of fully restoring America’s military might.” By that, he’s referencing our ability to be one of the greatest militaries on the planet.

Congress must finish the job by eliminating the defense sequester and passing a clean appropriations bill. I firmly believe that it will successfully happen. America needs our military! Trump said, “At this time of grave global threats, I urge Democrats to drop their shutdown threats and to send clean funding and a clean funding bill to my desk that fully funds our great military. Protecting our country should always be a bipartisan issue, just like today’s legislation.

The NDAA passed Congress last month with large, bipartisan majorities; 356-70 in the House and by a unanimous voice vote in the Senate.

Brand new beautiful equipment is on its way, the best you’ve ever had by far. We make the best in the world, and you’re going to have it.

There’s truly only one minor victory in the bill for Democrats – a minor provision calling climate change a “national security threat.” Nothing is proposed to fix the “threat,” and we’ll see how eager the Trump administration finds themselves to do anything about that.

With that said, I would love to see how a fighter jet neutralizes the threat of “climate change.”
