Recently, we've heard quite a bit about documentary maker Ami Horowitz. Hearing about it is one thing, watching it another.
Please watch this video in its entirety:
... No president has ever had so few cabinet members confirmed at this late date, just as no president has been confronted with such open talk of assassination and impeachment.Read the rest HERE.
Speaking of which, have you heard a single Democrat decry the talk of assassination? Have you heard a single Democrat denounce the violence carried out by so-called protesters?
The answers are no and no because Dems see the riots and threats of violence as legitimate expressions of disapproval — and convenient for their purposes.
Their contribution to the “resistance” started when 70 Democrats boycotted Trump’s inauguration and many senators boycotted confirmation hearings and votes. Maybe they’ll soon throw rocks through windows....
..."You see, what I’m surprised by, just a smidgen, is that the liberal left that speaks and desires for all of us to be tolerant do not want to be tolerant of anyone that disagrees with where they are coming from,” Scott said after reciting the hateful messages.Read the rest and watch the video HERE.
“I just wish that my friends who call themselves liberals would want tolerance for all Americans, including conservative Americans,” he said.

According to a list posted on Reddit, Donald Trump’s supporters can’t patronize: Pepsi (that means no soda, Doritos, Mountain Dew or Lipton tea), Macy’s, Amazon, the entire NFL, GrubHub, Oreos, Carrier air conditioners, Dreamworks, Netflix, Lifeway Yogurt, ConAgra (which makes nearly everything you consume), Disney, Ben & Jerry’s, Starbucks, Budweiser beer, and Apple and Dell computers.Much more HERE.
Another spreadsheet, posted on GrabYourWallet.com, says that Trump’s opponents can’t frequent: Nordstrom, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, LL Bean, Dillards, Zappos, TJ Maxx, Lord & Taylor, Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, the Home Shopping Network, Ross Dress for Less, Sears, Carnival Cruises, The Honest Company, the LA Clippers, Lending Tree, Miller beer, NASCAR, Uline, New Balance and Universal Studios.
...The controversial painting was selected as part of a student art competition in Rep. William Lacy Clay's district. The Missouri Democrat hung it in the Capitol, and Republicans immediately demanded that it should be taken down.And then there's this (from C-Span on February 6, 2017):
After the Architect of the Capitol agreed the painting should be removed, Pelosi appealed the decision to the House Office Building Commission. Pelosi herself sits on that panel, which also includes House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.
The panel rejected her appeal in a 2-1 vote...
I was outraged by the ban on refugees from war-torn countries in the Middle East. I’ve covered refugees fleeing war in Iraq and Syria over the last two years, meeting families on the road in Greece, Serbia and Macedonia, speaking to poor people in Turkey and Jordan and discussing the hopes and fears of people displaced in Iraq. If you want to ban “terrorists,” these are the last people to hit with a refugee ban. Instead the government should be using the best intelligence possible to find people being radicalized, some of whom have lived in the US their whole lives or who come from countries not affected by the ban, such as Saudi Arabia or Pakistan.Read it all HERE, including the numerous embedded links.
So I was outraged, and then I read the executive order....
But, wait a sec. According to the reports “The order bars all people hailing from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.” Critics had attacked Trump for selecting these seven countries and not selecting other states “linked to his sprawling business empire.” Bloomberg and Forbes bought into this.
But, wait a sec. I read the order and Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen are not mentioned in it.
Go back and read it again. Do a “ctrl-f” to find “Iraq”. Where is “Iraq” in the order. It’s not there. Only Syria is there. So where are the seven nations? Where is the “Muslim ban”? It turns out this was a form of fake news, or alternative facts. Trump didn’t select seven “Muslim-majority” countries. US President Barack Obama’s administration selected these seven Muslim-majority countries.
The Department of Homeland Security targeted these seven countries over the last years as countries of concern....
So for more than a year it has been US policy to discriminate against, target and even begin to ban people from the seven countries that Trump is accused of banning immigrants and visitors from....
...[W]hy didn’t CNN note that the seven countries were not named and that in fact they are only on the list because of Obama’s policy?...
...[I]n the context of deciding whether to defend a presidential EO, the question for Yates is reasonable legality, not what is just and right. If Yates thought the EO, independent of its legality, had crossed a red line of justice and rightness—whatever those terms mean—she should have counseled the President on that point and resigned if he disagreed....Read the entire essay HERE.
