UNSC Resolution 2334 was Planned by Kerry, Rice, and Erekat

The passing of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334 with 14 votes, which condemns Israeli settlement construction, has caused Israeli and U.S. relations to falter. This is even in lieu of the Obama administration’s defense aid agreement for $38 billion over 10 years.

The Breakdown of Netanyahu and the Israeli State

What is the Fuss all about?


The United States on Friday, December 23, allowed U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334 which condemns Israeli settlement construction to be adopted. The Security Council approved the resolution with 14 votes, with the US abstaining. Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. raised her hand to abstain in the chamber when the resolution was put to a vote.

After the vote, Powers pressed that opposing settlement expansion was “consistent with the bipartisan consensus” and that "This resolution reflects trends that will permanent destroy the two state solution if they continue on their current course."



"Our vote today does not in any way diminish the United States' steadfast and unparalleled commitment to the security of Israel," Power said.



Israeli Prime Minister . . . ‘more committed to settlements than any in Israel’s history.’

Obama's Newest Russian Sanctions



Obama's Newest Russian Sanctions
By James Baxley

President Barack Obama’s administration’s newly imposed sanctions on Russia [on Thursday] for Russia’s alleged and unprecedented interference in the United States 2016 presidential election, mistreatment of U.S. diplomats, and cyber theft looks as if he is making it hard for Donald Trump to do any dealings with the Kremlin after Obama’s term is over.

Election 2016: Donors Want to Know

Election 2016: Donors Want to Know
By James Baxley

Even though the election is over and the recount is over, Hillary Clinton is still in the news. What we are reading and hearing from the alternative media is, the voters aren’t buying the Democrats reasons for losing the election. Not everyone is buying into the left’s lies and misinformation. Clinton keeps insisting that she lost the election because of Russia, Putin, fake news, hackers, James Comey, and Clinton's bumbling staff.

Clinton’s donors also aren't buying her excuses for losing the election. Clinton’s fallout is causing an internal revolt among her largest donors. Clinton’s biggest backers are urging local finance staffers, state party officials, and campaign aides to provide a more thorough explanation of how she lost the election. They want a “campaign autopsy,” which could expose how the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Clinton lost the election.

Donald Trump: The Power of the Tweet

Donald Trump: The Power of the Tweet 
By James Baxley

Donald Trump’s war on the media is a real thing. Trump ordered the media to a conference room on the twenty-fifth floor of Trump Tower for what was expected to be a press conference. In the presence of television executives and anchors, including around two dozen anchors and executives from legacy news outlets such as CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox, and ABC, including Lester Holt, Chuck Todd, Wolf Blitzer, Gayle King, David Muir, and Martha Raddatz, Trump whined about everything from NBC News reporter Katy Tur’s coverage of him to a photograph the news network has used that shows him with a double chin. Why didn’t they use “nicer” pictures?

Jill Stein: The Real Winner of the Recount

Jill Stein: The Real Winner of the Recount
By James Baxley


Jill Stein’s recount debacle is finally over. The Wisconsin recount gave Trump a larger lead than was originally reported. He gained 131 more votes bringing his total votes to 22,748.

In Detroit’s 662 voting precincts only 236, 37% had ballot totals which matched registration totals. The voting machines in one-third of the election precincts counted more ballots than the number of people registered to vote. Not exactly the result Stein was looking for.

Faithless Elector, 9/11, and Stolen Valor


Faithless Elector, 9/11, and Stolen Valor   
By James Baxley 
 
Most people in the military has heard of the term “stolen valor.” People presume that association with stolen valor is a military issue and in some cases with police departments.

I bring up the topic of “stolen valor” because our favorite Hamilton elector may be posing as something he isn’t. Chris Suprun portrays himself as a heroic firefighter who was among the first on the scene after the third plane flew into the Pentagon on 9/11.

His claim to fame as a first-responder on 9/11 has even earned him the privilege that only real heroes earn by throwing out the first pitch at Kauffman Stadium on September 11, 2014, as the Kansas City Royals hosted the Boston Red Sox.

In the December 5, 2016 New York Times op-ed in which Suprun talks about why he won’t cast a vote Donald Trump, he states “Fifteen years ago, as a firefighter, I was part of the response to the Sept. 11 attacks against our nation.”

FBI COMEY: No Credible Evidence that Russia Influenced the Outcome of the Recent U.S. Presidential Election

FBI COMEY:  No Credible Evidence that Russia Influenced the Outcome of the Recent U.S. Presidential Election
By James Baxley

Nearly six weeks since the election has ended and we are still talking about why Hillary Clinton lost. The MSM is more concerned with the loser of the election than the winner. The MSM has come to the conclusion that Clinton lost the election because of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Director James Comey, fake news, Clinton’s staff, and the Russian hackers. No mention of Clinton’s inadequacy at running a campaign.

The presidential election of 2016 reminds me of the infamous election of 1948 when incumbent President Harry S. Truman, ran a successful campaign for reelection against Thomas E. Dewey, the Republican nominee. The 2016 election was almost identical to the 1948 election except for the winner was a Democrat.


Every prediction indicated that Truman would be defeated by Dewey just as Clinton was predicted in every poll to defeat Trump. The Democrats regained control in 1948 regained both houses of Congress just as the Republicans did in the 2016 election.

The only difference (besides the winner being a Democrat) was that Dewey did not insist on a recount. Dewey also did not insist that the Electoral College not cast their votes for Truman. There weren’t riots or protests in the streets. Dewey, unlike Clinton accepted his loss.

According to The New York Times bestselling author Ed Klein, “FBI Director James Comey assured the president-elect there was no credible evidence that Russia influenced the outcome of the recent U.S. presidential election by hacking the Democratic National Committee and the e-mails of John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign” and goes on to say that “James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, agreed with this FBI assessment.”

Ann Coulter: Trump's biggest supporter now?



Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and Republican vice-presidential nominee isn't the only person who is angry at Donald Trump. Ann Coulter, the author and commentator is just as furious. “Sounds like the big sell-out is coming. Oh well. The voters did what we could,” Coulter tweeted. “If Trump sells out, it’s not our fault.”



Coulter is Trump’s biggest supporter along with Sarah Palin and Sean Hannity close behind; she even has a new book titled In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome! In this book she declares, “There’s nothing Trump can do that won’t be forgiven. Except change his immigration policies.”

"We've been around for 240 years. We've had free and fair elections.

"We've been around for 240 years. We've had free and fair elections. We've accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them."

It was the Russians

It was the Russians
By James Baxley


It all started when Clinton made an allegation that Russia, Putin to be more specific was helping Trump to win the election. This is partly what caused Green Party’s Jill Stein to force a recount of three swing states (that Trump won by the way): Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.


In the third presidential debate, Clinton accused Trump of

America’s Militarization of the Police



Is it obvious that the police in the United States are militarized? Yes. All one has to do is to watch the nightly news and the militarization of police departments will be obvious. The police are now decked out in body armor, night vision googles, and carrying semi-automatic weapons. When the police roll up to a crime scene, in many instances they can be seen in a matte black Bearcat MRAP armored vehicle.


 This is even true for college campus police. It isn’t uncommon today to see

Election 2016: Texas Elector Art Sisneros Resigns



Election 2016: Texas Elector Art Sisneros Resigns
By James Baxley
The Electoral College will cast 538 votes for president in December. Texas will have 38 electoral votes for Donald Trump, unless you factor in the possible faithless elector Chris Suprun, then Trump will receive 37 votes and a mystery person will receive one electoral vote. 


In an interview with NPR on December 7, Art Sisneros, a Texas Republican party’s elector for the 36th district says “I came to the conclusion, well, I can't vote for Donald Trump. I don't, in good conscience, think that he's qualified.” Sisneros continues, “I was really still weighing in how I was going to cast my vote. And so I come at it from a Christian perspective. So I say, OK, what are the moral implications of my vote?”

Tillerson: Big Oil and Climate Change, or Drill Baby Drill




It appears that the top candidate for the position of Secretary of State isn’t Mitt Romney or David Petraeus. Rex Tillerson, the chairman and CEO of Exxon Mobil Corporation will become Trump’s Secretary of State.


Donald Trump’s cabinet picks aren’t helping his denial of the never ending accusations of his alleged Russian involvement in the winning of the election either.

By James Baxley

Chris Suprun, the Republican Texas elector who, against the will of the Texas voters, refuses to cast his vote for the man Texas voters have decided to trust as their President, Donald Trump. Suprun should follow fellow Texan elector Art Sisneros, who has already resigned from the state’s Electoral College delegation on grounds that Trump does not meet his religious and moral principles.

Trump's Generals



If it wasn’t evident during Trump’s campaign that he loves and respects the military despite his attack on the “war hero” status of Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), it should be with his choice of cabinet picks. His choices for secretary of defense is James Mattis, secretary of homeland security John Kelly, and national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Why does Trump admire generals so much? Could it be because

Sarah Palin Upset with Trump




Second only to Ann Coulter, the former Governor of Alaska and former 2008 Republican vice president nominee Sarah Palin is probably one of the biggest Trump supporters out there.


Palin with her down-to-earth and folksy rhetoric always likes to use a liberal amount of hyperbole to get the crowds excited. I’ve posted a few quotes from her Trump endorsement speech in Iowa in January 2016 to show exactly how Palin's rhetoric works a crowd into a frenzy:

And Jill Stein's Recount Continues



The recount headed by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein (who received less than one percent of the vote) in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania is in full swing. Michigan has begun its recount despite the attorney general’s lawsuit to prevent the recount from happening. The date for the results to be in [at its latest] is December 19th due to a law that requires states to finish recounts after no more than 35 days after the election and it’s coming up fast.

Jill Stein’s recount effort is dividing members of the Green Party and is not only raising eyebrows within the Green Party about Stein’s motivations but

Hillary says only Trump Supporters Riot, after Election her Supporter’s Riot


Ever since Donald Trump won the election, there has been rioting in the streets. Some of the harshest riots have been in Portland, Los Angeles, and New York City; these cities were some of Clinton’s biggest supporters. Smaller demonstrators were held at University of California campuses and neighborhoods in UCLA, Berkeley, Irvine and Davis, and at San Jose State. 

It’s not Trump’s supporters who are

Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ is Racist; Clinton’s ‘Make America Great Again’ is Innocent



“Make America Great Again” has struck a chord with many people. It implies that America’s influence is fading and is past its prime. According to the Huffington Post, making America great means “silences immigrant experiences, shames women, and marginalizes people of color.” This may or may not be true, we will have to wait until Trump is inaugurated and has served his first hundred days in order to get a glimpse of the next forty-five months.

America may still be that

Why is Jill Stein Demanding a Recount?





 


In Clinton’s concession speech, she told her voters to accept the outcome and said “Donald Trump is going to be our president.” She went on “we owe him an open mind and the chance to lead,” adding: “Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power.”

During the second debate, when Trump hinted at the possibility of not accepting the election results, Clinton said that

Mark Cuban disses Trump about Possible Tax Fraud, yet he does the same



Death and taxes are the only things certain in life. For some people though, taxes aren’t that certain. Every four years the debate on taxes and political candidates rears its ugly head.


All the politicians want to prove they have nothing to hide. So what do they do? They show their income tax returns to the public eye. Everybody assumes that this has been the norm since Washington took office. Not so fast.

Trump is slowly becoming an Insider and he hasn’t even been inaugurated yet



President-Elect Trump’s campaign promise to ‘drain the swamp’ looks as if it may be harder to do than to say. Part of Trump’s appeal was that he was an outsider which was evident in the way he spoke, carried himself, and treated others (inside and outside of his party). Unpresident like, he threatened to sue newspapers, called Hillary ‘crooked Hillary,’ called illegal (yes, illegal) Mexicans rapists, and made false claims of endorsements.

Election 2016



I don’t really care about voting but that isn’t to say that I don’t like to watch the three ring circus which is in affect the politicians, the media, and the voters themselves.


It’s always fun to see the politicians and their followers fight amongst themselves like children on the playground. They call each other names like “the deplorable” and “crooked” as well as other names.
