Governor Greg Abbott hammers a Texas sheriff after she refuses to comply with immigration laws – TheBlaze

Governor Greg Abbott hammers a Texas sheriff after she refuses to comply with immigration laws – TheBlaze:

"Texas Governor Greg Abbott has given no quarter in his war against sanctuary cities within his state. He has already made himself “abundantly clear” in making sure any towns within the state of Texas obey immigration laws, and that he doesn’t “care what jurisdiction you’re at in the state of Texas. You are going to comply with the law.”

It would appear that Abbott may have to back up his word against Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez, who has forbid anyone in her offices to work with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). 

In a letter sent to Hernandez, Abbott called her directive “dangerous” and “shortsighted,”"

Employment Boom: 10 Companies That Have Promised To Add Jobs In The United States Since Trump Was Elected

Employment Boom: 10 Companies That Have Promised To Add Jobs In The United States Since Trump Was Elected:
One of the primary things that Trump’s presidency will be judged upon is his ability to encourage the creation of good paying jobs for American workers, and so far the results have been quite promising.  
Since Trump’s surprise election victory in November, a whole bunch of companies have either promised to bring jobs back into the country or have pledged to create new ones.  
Ultimately time will tell if those jobs actually materialize, but for the moment there is a tremendous amount of optimism in the air.  
In fact, I don’t know if we have ever seen anything quite like this at the beginning of a new presidency.  
The following are 10 companies that have promised to add jobs in the United States since the election of Donald Trump…
#1 Kroger says that it intends to fill 10,000 permanent positions in the United States this year.
#2 IBM has announced that it will be hiring an additional 25,000 workers in the United States over the next four years.
#3 Foxconn is considering setting up a 7 billion dollar plant in the United States that would create between 30,000 and 50,000 jobs.
#4 Amazon.com has pledged to add 100,000 full-time jobs in the United States by mid-2018.
#5 Wal-Mart has announced that it plans to add approximately 10,000 retail jobs in the United States in 2017.
#6 Sprint has announced that 5,000 jobs will be brought back to the United States instead of going overseas.
#7 After meeting with Trump, the CEO of SoftBank stated his intention to create 50,000 new jobs in the United States.
Hiring - Public Domain#8 After a phone call from Trump, industrial manufacturing giant Carrier promised to keep hundreds of jobs in the United States instead of moving them out of the country.
#9 Hyundai has promised to spend 3.1 billion dollars supporting their current factories in Georgia and Alabama, and they have said that they are now considering adding an additional factory in the United States as well.
#10 GM has pledged to invest a billion dollars in U.S. factories and to add or keep 7,000 jobs in the United States.
...Over the past several decades, formerly great manufacturing cities such as Detroit have been reduced to urban hellholes.  
Meanwhile, China has become exceedingly wealthy and gleaming new factories have sprouted like mushrooms in their major cities.
This didn’t happen by accident.
Bad decisions lead to bad results.  
And if we had kept on doing the same things, we would have continued to systematically impoverish our nation.
For more than seven years, I have been hammering home the message that our trade policies have been absolutely killing us.  
So I am quite thankful that we finally have a president that understands these things..."

Pope Francis Just Sent Crazy Lib Women’s Marchers A Brutal Message, It Shut Them Up – Conservative 101

Pope Francis Just Sent Crazy Lib Women’s Marchers A Brutal Message, It Shut Them Up – Conservative 101:

"These foolish Democrats made signs and participated in marches to try to silence our President Donald Trump, but they just ended up looking like overheated losers on national television. To add insult to injury, Pope Francis laid waste to their protesting with a powerful message that exposed them for the frauds they are.

In stark opposition to the march led by abortion-loving liberal women, Christians in France are holding a March for Life in Paris. The Pope handed down a strongly worded message praising the March for Life and condemning liberals who continue to advocate for killing unborn children."

Does the left have a drug problem?

Blog: Does the left have a drug problem?:
"I remain dumbfounded at the left’s continual episodes of tantrums and meltdowns, and since last week, things have only gotten worse – a lot worse.
Last week, Marc Lamont Hill, professor at Morehouse College, characterized Jim Brown, Steve Harvey, Martin Luther King III, and others as “mediocre negroes being dragged in front of TV as a photo-op for Donald Trump.”
Image result for liberals on drugsOver the weekend, actor Shia Laboeuf put a uniquely bizarre shouting tantrum on full display; actress Ashley Judd said President Trump has wet dreams about his daughter, Ivanka; and to cap it off, Madonna proclaimed that she has “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”
In the background of all this were anti-Trump protesters throwing rocks and fireworks at police outside a Milo Yiannopoulos event at the University of Washington; the beating of a high school Trump supporter at the same event; the assault on pollster Frank Luntz at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, D.C.; and a woman threatening to throw up on a Trump supporter’s lap on an commercial airplane.
What a week!
As I had to admit to myself that I had never seen anything like this before, I started to search for answers.
I couldn’t help but wonder, and I am not using hyperbole, if drugs could be one of the many factors that could help to explain, at least in part, some of these activities.
Drug use within the entertainment industry and the mindless plebeians who worship them is well known.
No news there, but what about the overwhelmingly liberal academia or media?
I suspect that drugs could be playing a significant role, especially among those susceptible to the pressures of  “publish or perish” or like pressures..."

Obama defied Congress to hand $220 MILLION to Palestinians | Daily Mail Online
Revealed: Obama defied Congress to hand $220 MILLION to Palestinians in dying hours of his time in office - and gave millions for climate change too
  • State Department quietly sent $221 million in aid to the Palestinian Authority which Congress had voted to block 
  • Advisory vote by Republicans is usually respected - but Obama administration formally advised Congress on Friday morning that it was sending money anyway 
  • Other cash which was handed out including $4 million for climate change programs - a move likely to anger the Trump administration

Fierce backlash after woman suggests assassinating Trump

Fierce backlash after woman suggests assassinating Trump:

"A Kentucky woman is facing serious backlash from the public and her own employers after suggesting on Twitter it would be “kind” for someone to assassinate Donald Trump, who was inaugurated as president three days later.

Heather Lowrey, who described herself as a Louisville vixen and aspiring wrestling diva on her Twitter profile before going into electronic hiding, tweeted the message Jan.17:"

Fake News: Three Mainstream Media Lies on Trump's First Day

Fake News: Three Mainstream Media Lies on Trump's First Day
"The mainstream media lost no time in attempting to undermine President Donald Trump, as opposed to actually reporting information...

  • Lie #1: President Trump was focused on the crowd size at the inauguration. He mentioned it in passing in his speech at the CIA, and Press Secretary Sean Spicer took the media to task for trying to downplay attendance figures. But to say — as CNN’s Anderson Cooper did — that crowd size was Trump’s focus on his first day in office is simply absurd...
  • Lie #2: President Trump insulted the CIA. Extending the faux outrage at Lie #1, the mainstream media criticized Trump for talking about crowd size in front of the CIA’s memorial wall for agents who have died in the course of their duties. The media showed considerably less concern when President Barack Obama spoke before the same wall about the release of the prior administration’s interrogation memos, impugning the integrity of the CIA and giving valuable intelligence to terrorists.
  • Lie #3: The anti-Trump protests in Washington, D.C. were important. The protests were nothing more than the venting of outrage at Trump’s election. For all the talk of “women’s rights,” there was nothing particular to point to that Trump had done about anything relating to women. The demonstration was large, but also disorganized, as well as vulgar, and protesters left heaps of trash over the various routes they took, including protest signs abandoned at Union Station as they left the capital."

Obama Lies on Voter ID: Many Countries Require It

Obama Lies on Voter ID: Many Countries Require It | National Review:
"He claimed that other countries don’t have voter-ID laws, though many do.
Image result for obama vote fraud liesPresident Obama is known for telling some whoppers — “If you like your health-care plan, you can keep it” is perhaps the most infamous – so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that he told a final one as president right before leaving office last week.
At his final press conference, Obama promised that he would continue to fight voter-ID laws and other measures designed to improve voting integrity.
The U.S. is “the only country among advanced democracies that makes it harder to vote,” he claimed. “It traces directly back to Jim Crow and the legacy of slavery, and it became sort of acceptable to restrict the franchise. . . . This whole notion of election-voting fraud, this is something that has constantly been disproved. This is fake news.” 
The argument over whether or not there is voter fraud will rage on, in part because the Obama administration has spent eight years blocking states from gaining access to federal lists of non-citizen and other possibly illegal voters.
Even so, there is abundant evidence that voter fraud is easy to commit..."

This Tweet From One Women’s March Organizer Shows How NUTS The Left's Worldview Is

This Tweet From One Women’s March Organizer Shows How NUTS The Left's Worldview Is | Daily Wire:
"One of the four chief organizers for the massive Women’s March that took place on Saturday is “Palestinian-American-Muslim racial justice & civil rights activist” Linda Sarsour.
Sarsour, who also served as a Democratic National Convention delegate, was honored by President Obama’s administration as a “Champion of Change”; fittingly, she also posed in Chicago with an alleged Hamas financier (fitting because Barack Obama used to give speeches in honor of Palestinian terror mouthpiece Rashid Khalidi).
So, what exactly drove Sarsour’s ire during the Women’s March? Here’s a clue from 2014:

10 weeks of PAID maternity leave in Saudi Arabia. Yes PAID. And ur worrying about women driving. Puts us to shame. http://www.saudigazette.com.sa/index.cfm?method=home.regcon&contentid=20141116224593 
If you wonder why hundreds of thousands of women declared themselves “brave” for marching in favor of taxpayer-funded contraception while doing nothing for women abroad who live in abysmal circumstances, this would be it: a complete lack of perspective.
Perhaps one reason that Saudi Arabia is happy to pay for “maternity leave” is because they bribe their citizens not to rebel against the autocratic regime through massive welfare payments; perhaps another reason is because the government wants to encourage women to stay home rather than working. 
In Saudi Arabia, as The Week reports, women can’t get a passport without the permission of a husband, father, or other male guardian; most Saudi women can’t drive; Saudi women are prevented from wearing attractive clothing; go to public areas that are non-segregated; or even try on clothes at stores.
This is just another piece of evidence that a government big enough to give you goodies is big enough to take away rights. 
And it turns out that people who think that Saudi Arabia’s maternity policies rather than their restrictions on female driving probably shouldn’t be a guide to female freedom in the United States. 
But the left would prefer not to focus on such matters, since that would obligate them to favor Westernism rather than multiculturalism abroad and at home."

Trump gets offered help to ‘drain the swamp’

Trump gets offered help to ‘drain the swamp’:

"Countering Violent Extremism, which forbade mention of Islam in association with terrorism and downplayed supremacist Islam as just one violent ideology among many.

On multiple occasions, politically appointed DHS officials either deleted valuable records Haney had compiled on Islamic terrorists or forced him to “modify” the records by removing information that linked the terrorists to particular Islamic movements.

Haney chronicled his 10-year struggle to expose the truth in “See Something, Say Nothing: A Homeland Security Officer Exposes the Government’s Submission to Jihad.” He believes his knowledge and experience would make him an ideal candidate to help Trump “drain the swamp.”"

The Brainwashing of a Nation

The Brainwashing of a Nation - Alicia Colon:
"By all rights, I should be a Democrat.
I'm Hispanic and grew up poor in the 50's in the mean streets of Spanish Harlem.
...The totally insane reactions to Donald trump's election by the progressive left is proof that their brains have been wired to behave against traditional Judeo-Christian values.
If it sometimes seems as if the whole world has been turned upside down and common sense has been thrown out the window, well, it has and we can trace this disastrous progressive movement to the 1940's and Nazi Germany.
What has been called 'cultural Marxism' emanated from a philosophical, social theory from Nazi dissidents of the Frankfurt School.
I prefer to call it brainwashing.
In a nutshell, these dissidents who were actually Marxists believed that social change and revolution could be achieved by pitting the have-nots against the haves. 
They came from the evil of Nazi Germany to the paradise of Southern California and proceeded to destroy it and they succeeded with the help of two illustrious Americans- Edward R. Murrow and Dr. Spock.
The renowned newsman Murrow was instrumental in bringing these Marxists into the country and into the hallowed halls of academia through his connection with the Institute of International Education..."

Obama quietly gave $221 million to Palestinians just hours before Trump’s inauguration – TheBlaze:

"The Associated Press reported that the Obama administration passed out millions of taxpayer dollars to left-wing causes just hours before President Donald Trump was inaugurated. The larger portion of the money, $221 million worth, went to the Palestinian Authority despite being put on hold by members of Congress.

The AP said a State Department official and several congressional aides confirmed that Obama formally notified Congress of the payout on the Friday morning of the inauguration."

Foreigners Are Dumping U.S. Debt At A Record Pace...

Foreigners Are Dumping U.S. Debt At A Record Pace And Our $20 Trillion National Debt Is Poised To Become A Major Crisis:
"While most of the country has been focused on the inauguration of Donald Trump, a very real crisis has been brewing behind the scenes. 
Image result for “Obama legacy of debtForeigners are dumping U.S. debt at a faster rate than we have ever seen before, and U.S. Treasury yields have been rising. 
This is potentially a massive problem, because our entire debt-fueled standard of living is dependent on foreigners lending us gigantic mountains of money at ultra-low interest rates. 
If the average rate of interest on U.S. government debt just got back to 5 percent, which would still be below the long-term average, we would be paying out about a trillion dollars a year just in interest on the national debt. 
If foreigners keep dumping our debt and if Treasury yields keep climbing, a major financial implosion of historic proportions is absolutely guaranteed within the next four years.
One of the most significant aspects of the “Obama legacy” is the appalling mountain of debt that he has left behind. 
As I write this article, the U.S. national debt is sitting at 19.944 trillion dollars. 
During Obama’s eight years, a staggering 9.3 trillion dollars was added to the national debt..."

"10 Things Learned From 3 Days In Washington D.C."

"10 Things Learned From 3 Days In Washington D.C." | Zero Hedge:
"Submitted by John Mauldin via MauldinEconomics.com,
I have been in Washington DC for the last three days. The ostensible reason was to participate in a board meeting of a public company, Ashford Inc. (AINC). We manage hotel REITs that own three hotels here in DC, and the group decided to move our board meeting up a few weeks and hold it in DC during the inauguration. That gave me the opportunity to set up a few meetings to try to gain some insight into what the first 100 days, the first six months, and the first year of the Trump administration might look like.
This is going to be a short letter summarizing my impressions from the last few days. 
I think it might be easiest to present them in the form of a list.
1. If you listen to the media you might have the impression that the Trump transition team is in complete disarray. Talking with leaders of the transition team certainly didn’t leave me with that impression...
2. There seem to be two general types of agency plans.
First, there are those where the culture of the department has to be changed, and then are those where the current staff seems to be doing its job but the culture surrounding the department has to be dealt with. Those are entirely different issues. The first can be handled to some degree by the executive branch, but the latter needs to be dealt with by congressional action.
3. Trump’s management style is going to drive the media (and admittedly, much of the country and the world) nuts...

I have met three types of people here in Washington DC. 

  • There are the Trump supporters, who seem to be wildly optimistic. 
  • On the other hand, as I look out my window here at the Capital Hilton, I see hundreds if not thousands of protesters walking by wearing little pink hats, and they are decidedly not happy. 
  • The third group is much smaller and consists of those who are actually aware of the amount of work that is going to have to be done and who recognize what a daunting task it will be..."

"A road-worn, devoted Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower and author is uniquely positioned to help President Donald Trump do the forensics on what is on the bottom of the swamp.
Since Phil Haney’s book, “See Something Say Nothing,” came out, he saw, felt and witnessed the rising up of Americans who coalesced at the ballot box to turn this country away from willful blindness, excessively loose immigration policies and failed counter-terrorism policies in the name of civil rights. 
Haney says, “people knew intuitively that something wasn’t right” in our government’s policies to keep Americans safe.
“I know where the valves are and people like me do,” the soft-spoken Haney — who traveled to 90 cities starting in Indianapolis, Ind. in April to Omaha, Neb. on Nov. 7, speaking to millions of worried Americans — says in this exclusive video interview for The Daily Caller News Foundation.
You will have to hold your nose, he says, because once you take the water out, then the real forensic work begins.
