Trump Appears To Mock Pelosi By Handing Out Pens During USMCA Signing

Yet this is a real achievement and not a failed coup.

Via Fox News:

President Trump appeared to mock House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week by gleefully handing out souvenir pens at the USMCA signing ceremony — a move that came after Pelosi was slammed for handing out souvenir pens with her name on them on the day she signed the resolution to transmit two articles of impeachment against Trump to the Senate.

Pelosi, D-Calif., gave out the commemorative pens Jan. 15 to a number of House Democrats who were involved in impeachment, a stark contrast from what she had repeatedly said was a “somber” and “prayerful” act. This led a number of commentators to condemn her as hypocritical and tone-deaf.

Poll Shows Double-Digit Increase In Race Relations Since Trump Took Office. CBS Reporter: Obama Would Be Envious

New Gallup polling shows a double-digit increase (14%) in the state of race relations since President Donald Trump took office — a far cry from what the mainstream media airwaves echo to viewers every day.

“Gallup’s survey demonstrates numerous categories in which the President has improved the lives of Americans since relieving Barack Obama of his duties in January of 2017,” The Political Insider reported Tuesday on the polling.

“The polling indicates double-digit improvements in how Americans view the nation’s economy, security from terrorism, military strength and … the state of race relations,” the report added.

According to Gallup, “the position of blacks and other racial minorities, the distribution of income and wealth, and the opportunity for a person to get ahead through hard work” have all increased under President Trump.

The Political Insider summed up: “The position of blacks and other racial minorities in the nation rose 9 percent since Obama’s last day in office, while the state of race relations in America shot up 14 percent.”

As noted by the outlet, CBS reporter Major Garrett commented last month that any president would be happy to oversee such numbers.

“It can be fairly said that this administration, because of President Trump’s quiet prodding, has done quite a bit for funding of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the First Step Act, which was a massive first step toward criminal justice reform,” Garrett stated.

“That is a legacy on the agenda side that almost any president after three years would want to claim, particularly President Obama,” the reporter noted.

Though the outlook was generally sunny for race relations under then-President Barack Obama, the reality was anything but. Mr. Obama’s penchant for interjecting racial narrative, even in local cases, was, no doubt, a catalyst for racial tension in the United States.

The BBC, which leans entirely Left, begrudgingly admitted this much in January 2017.

“Race relations have arguably become more polarised and tenser since 20 January 2009. Though smaller in scale and scope, the demonstrations sparked by police shootings of unarmed black men were reminiscent of the turbulence of the 1960s,” the BBC said.

“The toxic cloud from the tear gas unleashed in Ferguson and elsewhere cast a long and sometimes overwhelming shadow,” the outlet added. “Not since the LA riots in 1992 – the violent response to the beating of Rodney King and the later acquittal of the police officers filmed assaulting him – has the sense of black grievance and outrage been so raw.”

The BBC noted that the Obama years “gave rise” to the controversial racially-charged movement Black Lives Matter and highlighted a significant drop in Americans regarding racial relations as good. “Not long after he took office in 2009, a New York Times/CBS News poll suggested two-thirds of Americans regarded race relations as generally good,” the BBC reported. “In the midst of last summer’s racial turbulence, that poll found there had been a complete reversal. Now 69% of Americans assessed race relations to be mostly bad.”

In 2016, then-candidate Trump urged the black community to take a chance on him, famously asking, “What do you have to lose?”

Nolte: Let’s All Thank President John Roberts for Outing the Fake ‘Whistleblower’

We all owe Chief Justice John Roberts a big thank you for confirming the name of the phony, Deep State whistleblower who launched this stupid impeachment hoax.

Eric Ciaramella.

Eric Ciaramella.

Eric Ciaramella.

Eric Ciaramella, a CIA analyst and raging partisan who falsely accused President Trump of impeachable crimes, who has a history of working with former Vice President Joe Biden, and who might have had his own agenda in wanting Biden’s corruption in Ukraine covered up… Yep, that’s him.

After much speculation that Ciaramella is the guy, Roberts confirmed it Thursday through his unconstitutional act of commission.

Justice Cuck refused to read an impeachment question submitted by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).

The question was for House manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), whose staff worked with Eric Ciaramella to cobble together this hoax by way of a fake whistleblower complaint.

It was a simple and relevant question:

To the Manager Schiff and counsel for the President:

Manager Schiff and Counsel for the President, are you aware that House Intelligence Committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella when at the National Security Council together, and are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings?”

Roberts, who has no authority to do so, refused to read the question.

Why?

Because, without any authority, he said he would not read questions that reveal the name of the whistleblower.

And so, by refusing to read this question, this specific name, Roberts confirmed the whistleblower is, indeed, one Eric Ciaramella.

For his part, Sen. Paul who, unlike Roberts, is an elected official, was not amused. He tweeted:

My question is not about a “whistleblower” as I have no independent information on his identity. My question is about the actions of known Obama partisans within the NSC and House staff and how they are reported to have conspired before impeachment proceedings had even begun. [A]nd are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal house impeachment proceedings.

What’s more, by unilaterally refusing to allow valid questions like this one, Roberts is rigging the trial against Trump.

The Senate is the jury. Paul is a member of that jury. So it is not only outrageous not to allow a juror to ask a question; it is also a violation of the Sixth Amendment not to allow the president to face his accuser, to question and cross-examine his accuser.

No legitimate jury in the world can make a fair ruling without a good look at the accuser.

What’s more, it is not even Roberts who would be revealing the name; it is the senator asking the question revealing the name. Roberts is merely reading someone else’s question, which proves his motives are not only partisan, but one more example of the chief justice fabricating something out of whole cloth to benefit Democrats.

After all, this is the same President John Roberts who singlehandedly rewrote the unconstitutional Obamacare mandate into a “tax” — something the lawmakers who wrote the Obamacare law specifically said it was not — just so he could protect Barack Obama’s signature policy.

North Carolina Counties Declare 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Status

The Second Amendment Sanctuary movement is picking up steam again as counties in North Carolina declare they have no intention of enforcing new controls that infringe on gun rights.

On January 29, 2020, WFAE reported Cabarrus, Cleveland, Catawba, Lincoln and Union counties had all declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status. And the Gaston Gazette reports Gaston County added its name to the list of Second Amendment Sanctuaries this week.

The StatePortPilot.com reports Brunswick County is set to make a similar declaration, with the all-Republican board of commissioners planning a February 17 vote on the issue.

Commissioner Mike Forte introduced the declaration, saying, “When we got sworn in, we swore that we would uphold the Constitution and the Second Amendment.”

Commissioner Marty Cooke concurred with Forte’s push, declaring, “If I have to do the same thing about the First Amendment, if I have to do anything about the Second Amendment or any of the other ones … I’m going to stand with the Constitution.”

Over 100 local governments in Virginia have declared Second Amendment Sanctuary status since Democrats won control of the state legislation in November 2019. Second Amendment Sanctuaries have also been declared in Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, New Jersey, Texas, and numerous other states.

In every instance, the declaration means county and/or city leaders have no intention of enforcing gun controls that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms.

Trump To Aggressively Target Human Trafficking with Executive Order That Creates New Position

President Donald Trump plans to expand the White House domestic policy office by appointing an individual to focus exclusively on combating human trafficking, The Associated Press has learned.

Trump is expected to create the position by executive order Friday after he addresses a human trafficking summit at the White House.

A candidate has yet to be identified for the new post on the Domestic Policy Council, according to a White House official, who added that Trump wants to fill the slot quickly with someone detailed from another government agency.

The White House official was not authorized to discuss the president’s plans before his Friday announcement and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Trump has sought to elevate human trafficking since taking office by speaking publicly about the issue and inviting reporters into his White House meetings with victims and anti-trafficking advocates.

A partner in the effort is Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and senior adviser.

During a visit to Atlanta this month, she compared trafficking to “modern-day slavery” and said the White House is committed to ending it.

Ivanka Trump also is scheduled to speak at Friday’s summit.

She said Thursday in a statement to the AP that the coming executive order will provide additional resources to combat human trafficking.

“From funding for prevention education programs, to enhanced intelligence-level coordination, to fighting child pornography, to a new full-time position within his White House’s Domestic Policy Council, the president is using all tools at his disposal to ensure that the end of modern-day slavery becomes a reality,” she said.

Under the executive order, according to the White House official, the State Department will be tasked with creating a website to serve as a clearinghouse where law enforcement officials, victims, advocates and others can get information on government-wide efforts to combat human trafficking.

Federal departments and agencies will also be asked to propose legislative and executive actions to help law enforcement officials track the sharing — in real time — of child sexual abuse material on the internet.

The Justice and Homeland Security departments will also be directed to work with the Education Department to fund prevention education programs for the nation’s schools.

Some groups on the left have criticized the summit.

Others that have been invited said they will not attend.

Eric Schwartz, president of Refugees International, said in a statement that the Trump administration has pursued policies that endanger trafficking victims by chipping away at their legal protections.

Schwartz cited an increase in the denial rate for special visas that allow trafficking victims to legalize their status, access services and seek punishment for their abusers.

WATCH: Deranged Liberal CNN Reporter Suggests Ted Cruz’s Young Daughters Should Be In Jail

A deranged liberal CNN reporter was filmed saying that Senator Ted Cruz’s young children should be in jail.

Brian Karem of CNN asked Senator Ted Cruz during a press conference about the impeachment trial of President Trump, “So basically what they said is Hunter Biden got a job. His dad was Vice President. If that’s a crime. I mean, shouldn’t half of your children be in prison?”

Senator Ted Cruz slammed Karem for implying that Senator Cruz has committed crimes that justify jailing his 9-year-old and 11-year-old daughters.

Social Network Parler Condemns Twitter’s ‘Cowardice’ for Suspending Katie Hopkins

Free-speech centered social network Parler has condemned Twitter for suspending British conservative pundit Katie Hopkins, calling the decision “cowardice” and slamming Twitter leaders for once again capitulating to the aggressive brand of cancel culture promoted by activist groups.

Twitter temporarily locked Hopkins’s account on Thursday following an organized campaign led by British TV personality Rachel Riley and the left-wing Centre for Countering Digital Hate.

The social media giant hasn’t stated the specific reasons why it suspended Hopkins, claiming only that the pundit had made harmful comments based on race, religion, nationality and gender identity.

Hopkins has been a regular target of left-wing activists and their allies in the mainstream media who disagree with her stances on Brexit, immigration, and radical Islam. These activists have been trying for months to get Hopkins thrown off Twitter by smearing her as a racist.

Parler, a social media platform that launched last year as a competitor to Twitter, said that Twitter’s decision shows that it lacks a moral backbone when it comes to defending freedom of speech.

“Big tech has once again failed to take a moral stance and protect debate, discussion, and free speech when bullied by the censorship mob,” Parler said in a statement to Breitbart News.

“These companies have grown to be giants on the back of their users, yet wilt under pressure from ‘cancel culture’ and fail time and again to protect our free speech. This cowardice shows these companies simply do not deserve the trust and power we have bestowed on them.”

Parler said that Silicon Valley giants have repeatedly bowed to activist groups even when users haven’t broken terms of service.

“They have to give in to the pressure pushed to them by groups such as the CCHD or the SPLC [Southern Poverty Law Center]. Even if users do not break any specific terms of service violations they have shown that the loud voices of many outspoken and ideological groups will pressure them to ban groups or individuals. This is not the kind of moral backbone you want from a technology company.”

Parler concluded: “We need to stand together as a community to pursue a market solution such as Parler to fight big techs oppressive behavior.”

Hopkins has amassed more than 1 million followers on Twitter and her tweets have been re-tweeted by President Donald Trump. Hopkins didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Twitter Blacklists Katie Hopkins After Pressure from ‘Anti-Hate’ Group

British conservative media personality Katie Hopkins has been blacklisted from Twitter following pressure from the left-wing “anti-hate” group the Center for Countering Digital Hate along with progressive TV presenter Rachel Riley.

Several of Hopkins’ tweets have been retweeted by President Trump.

According to the Independent, Twitter has said it temporarily locked Hopkins out of her account for “violating the site’s hateful-conduct policy which bans the promotion of violence or inciting harm on the basis of race, religion, national origin or gender identity.”

Progressive TV presenter Rachel Riley, who previously led a campaign against antisemitism in the British Labour party, said that she and a member of the Center for Countering Digital Hate had met with Twitter shortly before Hopkins’ suspension to lobby the tech company about her continued presence on the platform.

Riley said they also asked Twitter to review the account of George Galloway, a socialist, Euro-skeptic British politician known for his uncompromising opposition to Israel and his support of Jeremy Corbyn, who Riley frequently criticized.

Asked for a comment about Hopkins’ suspension, a Twitter spokeswoman said, “Keeping Twitter safe is a top priority for — abuse and harassment have no place on the service. We take enforcement action against any account that is violative of our rules — which includes violations of our hateful conduct policy and abusive behavior policy. These rules apply to everyone using our service, regardless of the account involved.”

Twitter did not comment on Galloway’s account.

According to the Independent, Riley said that she was “pleased to see that action appears to have been taken.”
