Seven Times The GAO Found The Obama Administration Violated Federal Law – Breitbart
.

.
Democrats and journalists were excited Thursday when the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a legal opinion that the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) had violated the Impoundment Control Act by withholding congressionally appropriated aid to Ukraine last summer.

The non-binding opinion was disputed by the OMB, which released a memo last month arguing that the “programmatic” delay sought to fulfill, not oppose, congressional intent.

The GAO decision, which had been requested by Democrat Senator Chris van Hollen of Maryland, disagreed, concluding that the delay had been for “policy reasons,” not “programmatic delay.”…

Illegal Alien Hired By Baltimore-Area Church As Bus Driver Charged With 19 Counts Of Child Molestation – Conservative Review

Support of criminals and illegal aliens by many wayward churches is touted as the ultimate expression of compassion rooted in Biblical values. But it’s merely virtue-signaling – and not of virtues. Nowhere is this more evident than in the harboring of criminal aliens.

On Thursday, police in Annapolis, Maryland, arrested Jose Argueta, 44, an illegal alien from El Salvador, on 19 child sex assault charges. He is accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl on four occasions and taking pornographic images of her during several of those incidents since mid-December.

“It was obvious that there was a lot of information confirming that this had happened and also photographs unfortunately-pornographic images of this child,” said Sgt. Amy Miguez of the Annapolis Police Department in an interview with reporters.

ICE lodged a detainer with the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on the day of the arrest, but for now Argueta is being held without bail…

Fake Impeachment Trial Of President Trump Begins As Senators Are Sworn In – Epoch Times

The impeachment trial of President Donald Trump began in the Senate on Thursday with a reading of the House-passed articles of impeachment and a swearing-in of 100 senators in front of Supreme Court Justice John Roberts.

Roberts after 2 p.m. ET placed his hand on the Bible and was sworn in by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R.-Iowa), the Senate’s president pro tempore. He then called on all 100 senators to stand to be sworn in.

The senators took an oath when they are to try the impeachment case. Justice Roberts asked them: “Do you solemnly swear that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of President Donald John Trump, president of United States, now pending, you will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws, so help you God?”

“We do,” the senators repled.

Report: British Police Allowed Underage Girls To Be Raped Over Fears An Investigation Would Be Racist – Big League Politics

An investigation has indicated that dozens of teenage girls believed to be victims of Muslim grooming gangs in Britain were allowed to be abused because law enforcement believed an investigation would be racist.

A shocking probe has shown that the Greater Manchester Police (GMP) and the city council refused to continue their investigation because of “many sensitive community issues” they had to deal with. They felt that investigating the identities of the alleged rapists, who are now being called “Asian” by the dishonest fake news of Britain, would lead to rage.

“Concerns were expressed about the risk of proactive tactics or the incitement of racial hatred,” states the 145-page independent review.

“The authorities knew that many [victims] were being subjected to the most profound abuse and exploitation but did not protect them from the perpetrators. This is a depressingly familiar picture and has been seen in many other towns and cities across the country,” the review adds…

President Trump signed a landmark trade agreement with China, heralding a period of detente in a trade war between the world’s two largest economies fueled by decades of complaints that Beijing was manipulating its currency and stealing trade secrets from American firms.

The pact, detailed in a 94-page document, is only the initial phase of a broader deal that Trump has said may come in as many as three sections.

“Together, we are righting the wrongs of the past,” Trump said in a pomp-filled signing ceremony. “It doesn’t get any bigger than this.”

Winning: Federal Judge Rules In Favor Of Trump Administration On Family Separations At Border – Epoch Times

A U.S. federal judge ruled that the Trump administration is operating within its authority when separating families who enter the country illegally at the U.S.-Mexico border.

U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw in San Diego, California, said in a 26-page decision (pdf) on Monday that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials were “generally exercising their discretion to separate families at the border” consistent with immigrants’ “rights to family integrity and the court’s orders.”

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) argued that border officials were separating families over minor infringements such as traffic violations or previous illegal border crossings.

The organization asked the judge in July 2019 to rule on whether the government was justified in separating 911 children during the first year after the judge halted the general practice in June 2018…

“What a disappointment -Democrats just blocked a vote on a resolution supporting the Iranian protestors,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeted. “This is not the time for partisan politics.

Virginia DemoNazis Drop AR-15 Confiscation After Thousands Of NRA Members Show Up To Oppose Them – Breitbart

Virginia Democrats withdrew an AR-15 confiscation bill Monday after thousands of NRA members showed up to oppose new gun controls.

The NRA asked members to flood the January 13, 2020, Virginia Senate meetings and ensure pro-Second Amendment voices drowned out those calling for gun control. Video from hallways outside the meetings showed NRA members responded en masse.

The Washington Free Beacon reports the presence of thousands of NRA members “appeared to have an impact.” Democrats withdrew a bill aimed at AR-15 confiscation and moderated other gun control proposals.

But NRA-ILA Virginia state director Daniel Spiker made clear the changes, though good, were not enough. He said, “While there were some improvements to some of these bills, overall, it’s still bad legislation. Putting in more regulations and making it more onerous on the law-abiding citizens of Virginia is not something we stand for.”…

Nutburger Goes On Stabbing Spree In Colorado Springs, Wounding Eight – KKTV

A man is in custody after going on a stabbing spree around downtown Colorado Springs early Monday morning.

Spy Court Picks FISA Abuse Denier To Tackle FISA Abuse – The Federalist

The nation’s top spy court appointed an Obama-era Justice Department official who has denied and downplayed FBI surveillance abuse to assess the FBI’s response to a scathing new report cataloguing problems with how the agency secured authority to spy on a Donald Trump campaign affiliate.

Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) presiding Judge James Boasberg appointed David Kris to review the FBI’s proposed changes to its surveillance application process even though he spent the past few years running interference for the FBI as substantive criticism of the agency mounted.

Lengthy investigations in the House of Representatives and by the Department of Justice inspector general showed major problems with the claims the FBI made as part of an investigation into whether Trump was a traitor who had colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

Those problems include withholding exonerating evidence, undue reliance on shady sources, and outright alteration of evidence…

Flo Perry, a feminist author based out of London, is pushing the idea that nude models should pose in front of children in order to make them more “relaxed” about sexual matters.

While appearing on the broadcast, Perry said: “Naked strangers is this big word. Nobody is gonna be like, ‘Put my kid in form of naked strangers.’”

“We have to examine our own reaction to that and think ‘Why do we have that reaction?’. The disgust thing, is it because nudity is so sexualized in our culture? And actually if we’re exposed to it in a different form, will it make us more relaxed about nudity and our own bodies and make us feel less self conscious?” she added.

Iranian Military Apologizes For Shooting Down Ukraine-Bound Flight, Cites ‘Human Error’ – Daily Caller

The Iranian military apologized Friday for shooting down a commercial airliner bound for Ukraine, and blamed “human error” for launching the missile that took down the airplane, according to Iranian state media.

“The plane was accidentally hit by a human error, which unfortunately results in the martyrdom of dear compatriots and the death of a number of foreign nationals,” the military’s general staff said in a statement published by the Islamic Republican News Agency.

The statement is a reversal from the Iranian government’s claim Wednesday that the plane, a Boeing 737, crashed due to mechanical failure.

U.S. officials disputed that claim, and said intelligence showed that Iran fired Russia-made missiles that took down the plane, killing all 176 people aboard.

New York DemoNazis Move To Register Illegal Aliens, Non-Citizens To Vote – Breitbart

On Thursday, Senate Senate Democrats passed legislation that will automatically register all residents who obtain driver’s licenses through the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMVs).

As of this year, illegal aliens are able to obtain driver’s licenses in New York, indicating that illegal aliens and non-citizens will only be excluded from the state voter rolls if they check the “opt-out” box before applying for a license.

Hungary Takes On The Feminist Goliath And Wins – David Solway

Feminism is a social and political movement. It is not an academic discipline on par with, say, mathematics, economics, business administration, engineering or physics. Gender studies, feminism’s academic wing, does not constitute an appropriate subject for an academic degree.

At best it is a subset of a complex of ideas, issues, and events properly canvassed by the History Department, along with a myriad other themes and developments in the study of Western civilization.

Moreover, such programs have no business infesting legitimate areas of study to the extent that an astronomer must sign an affidavit attesting to his involvement in social justice projects or an engineer proclaim his fealty to the feminist manifesto if he is to be considered for promotion.

The same proviso applies to any applicant for a university position. It should be obvious that gender programs and initiatives have nothing to do with mapping the universe…

Finally!: British Parliament Makes History By Formally Approving Prime Minister Johnson’s Brexit Deal – Daily Mail
.

.
MPs have finally given their formal backing to Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal after more than three years of bitter parliamentary wrangling over the UK’s departure from the European Union.

The historic EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill cleared the Commons this afternoon – despite Labour opposition – as MPs gave the draft legislation its third reading by 330 votes to 231, a majority of 99.

It is the final major Commons hurdle which the so-called WAB had to navigate and it will now head to the House of Lords next week for further scrutiny before the UK leaves the EU on January 31…

Cover-Up: Prosecutors Confirm That Surveillance Video Of Jeffrey Epstein’s Cell Was Destroyed – Big League Politics

Prosecutors in the case of deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein have confirmed that the correctional facility housing Epstein destroyed the surveillance footage of his cell while he allegedly attempted suicide days before he was found dead.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Maurene Comey and Jason Swergold filed the letter in Manhattan Federal Court confirming that footage from the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) on July 22 and 23 was mysteriously destroyed, in the latest revelation that casts doubt on the official story.

“As set forth in greater detail, the Government has learned that the MCC inadvertently preserved video from the wrong tier within the MCC, and, as a result, video from outside the defendant’s cell on July 22-23, 2019 (i.e. the requested video) no longer exists,” the letter explains.

Swergold had previously made the same claim that the footage was destroyed in White Plains Federal Court last month, but recanted just 24 hours later…

House DemoNazis Pass Fake War Powers Act That Doesn’t Actually Do Anything Other Than Make Trump Voters Giggle – Breitbart

A War Powers measure passed the House of Representatives on Thursday in what Democrats pushing it said was an effort to restrain President Donald Trump’s power when it comes to military response to Iranian aggression.

The measure passed along mostly partisan lines, and technically it does not have any actual teeth because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) structured it as a “concurrent resolution,” which by definition will never make it to the president’s desk.

The vote passed 224-194, with eight Democrats voting against it and just three Republicans voting for it. The three Republicans were Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Francis Rooney (R-FL), and Thomas Massie (R-KY).

The eight Democrats who voted against it were: Reps. Max Rose (D-NY), Ben McAdams (D-UT), Anthony Brindisi (D-NY), Joe Cunningham (D-SC), Elaine Luria (D-VA), Kendra Horn (D-OK), Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), and Stephanie Murphy (D-FL)…

On Wednesday, a federal appellate court lifted an injunction by a lower court which had prevented $3.6 billion in military funds from being used for the construction of a barrier on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, based in New Orleans, ruled 2-1 to lift the injunction put in place in December by El Paso-based District Court Judge David Briones, a Clinton appointee.

Not So Shocking Report: Record Number Of Guns Sold As Dems Vow To Disintegrate Rights – Zero Hedge

In a not so surprising report, the FBI conducted a record number of background checks for gun sales in 2019. All of these gun purchases ramp up every time democrats open their mouths voicing support to disintegrating the rights of the people.

The FBI carried out a record 28 million background checks on firearms purchases in 2019, as Americans rushed to buy weapons amid calls by wealthy elitists in Hollywood and Democrat politicians for tougher gun laws.

According to FBI data, 28,369,750 background checks were performed in 2019, smashing the previous record of 27 million in 2016. The agency ran 202,465 checks on Black Friday alone.

Dipshits Arrested For Gluing Winning Numbers Onto Lottery Ticket – New York Post

Two men in Mississippi wanted to claim a $100,000 lottery prizes so bad, they glued the winning numbers onto a losing ticket, authorities said.

Latham and Sparks were arrested at the lottery headquarters and have been charged with conspiracy to commit a felony and uttering a counterfeit instrument over $1,000. Latham was also charged with false identification information.

Private Payrolls Soar: 202,000 Jobs Added In December – Breitbart

The U.S. private sector added 202,000 positions in December, according to an estimate from ADP and Moody’s Analytics. This far outpaced the 150,000 new hires forecast by economists. In addition, ADP revised its November estimate dramatically higher, from 67,000 to 160,000.

The report suggests that the labor market ended 2019 in a position of rising strength. The Labor Department will release its report on the jobs situation on Friday. Economists expect that to show a gain of 160,000 private and public sector jobs.

Medium sized businesses, those with between 50 and 499 employees, led the way in job growth, adding 88,000 jobs. Larger businesses added 69,000 and smaller firms added 45,000, ADP/Moody’s said.

Despite the very high number of new positions in December, Moody’s Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi said that job gains “continue to moderate.”

A Pentagon spokesperson later confirmed missiles were fired at two or more Iraqi bases with American and coalition forces.

My New Year’s fear is that Joe Biden will finally implode on the campaign trail and show up on stage at a rally wearing nothing but a cowboy hat and carrying a chicken. That’ll probably be too much for even the Democrats and they’ll start looking to the next in line, which has been Sanders since the beginning of the year.

42 Million Babies Were Aborted In 2019, Becoming Leading Worldwide Cause Of Death – Big League Politics

According to the tracking service, Worldometers, 42 million abortions were carried out around the world in 2019. For another year, abortion became the leading cause of death in the world.

As of December 31, Worldometers recorded 42.4 million abortions, which represented more than half the total number of deaths by every other cause (58.6 million). Lifesite News reported that abortions “dwarfed every individual cause of death, including overall deaths due to disease (13 million).”

However, the true total number of abortions is murky because Worldometers uses statistics on health and mortality from the World Health Organization (WHO), which then relies on figures from the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute.

Report: Obama Regime Stopped Israel From Assassinating Soleimani In 2015 – PJ Media

When President Donald Trump gave the order to kill Iran’s Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani, he not only made an arguably proportionate response to the invasion of the U.S. Embassy this week but he also reversed a policy of the Obama administration.

According to a report from 2018, Israel was “on the verge” of assassinating Soleimani in 2015, but Obama’s officials foiled the plan. In fact, they reached out to Iran with news of Israel’s plans.

The Trump administration, on the other hand, gave Israel a green light to assassinate Soleimani, according to a January 1, 2018 report from the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida. The paper quoted a source in Jerusalem as saying that “there is an American-Israeli agreement” that Soleimani is a “threat to the two countries’ interests in the region.”

According to Haaretz, Al-Jarida is generally assumed to be a platform for the Israeli government to disseminate its message to other Middle Eastern governments…

Egg On Their Faces: 2004 DOD Climate Change Report Predicted Nuclear War By 2020 – PJ Media

In 2004, The Guardian reported on a Department of Defense climate-change report that would prove “hugely embarrassing” for President George W. Bush. The report predicted that climate change could be America’s greatest national security threat.

Yet these climate-change predictions, like so many others, proved nearly the opposite of the truth. Among other things, the report predicted nuclear war, endemic conflict over resources, and European cities underwater by 2020.

None of these things happened.

“A secret report, suppressed by U.S. defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020.

Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world,” The Guardian reported…

Rudy G Prepared To Testify About ‘Vast’ Corruption Of Democrats And Ukraine At Trump Trial – Daily Caller

Personal attorney to President Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, said Tuesday that he is prepared to testify at the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump about the “American Ukrainian corruption.”

‘Remain In Mexico’: U.S. Begins Returning Asylum Seekers At Arizona Port Of Entry – Epoch Times

Migrants who cross the Arizona-Mexico border will be returned to Mexico without any detours in the United States, the Department of Homeland Security announced Thursday.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced Thursday that it is expanding the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) program in Arizona. The program, commonly known as “Remain in Mexico,” means foreign nationals who seek asylum at ports of entry on the Southern border from Mexico can be sent to Mexico while they wait for a hearing in an immigration court located in the United States.

During their stay, the Mexican government will provide these individuals with humanitarian protection and care.

Previously, migrants making an illegal entry into Arizona’s Tucson Sector were bused to El Paso Port of Entry before they were taken to Ciudad Juلrez, Mexico, to await their immigration court proceedings. From now on, those individuals will be sent back at the Nogales Port of Entry, south of Tucson…

Black Dude Arrested After Threatening To ‘Bomb All The Jews In Jersey City’ – Big League Politics

An African-American suspect from Jersey City has been arrested after allegedly making threats to bomb all of Jewish people in the area.

Darryl Jacobs, 47, is accused of making the threat on Dec. 13, shortly after a Kosher store was attacked by black supremacists. He allegedly made the threat while on the phone with a welfare worker in the county, and was arrested three days after reportedly making the comment.

According to the criminal complaint filed against Jacobs, law enforcement did not seize any explosives but did take two cell phones. The court document claims that Jacobs said he “was going to come down and bomb all the Jews in Jersey City” to the welfare employee, who was not acquainted with the alleged terrorist.

Authorities claim Jacobs was likely intoxicated while he made the comment. He is facing a third-degree charge of making a terrorist threat…

Government unions do not have to refund so-called agency fees to public employees who were forced to pay them before the Supreme Court struck down such mandatory dues as unconstitutional in 2018, a federal appeals court ruled.

The ruling is a victory for the labor movement, which has been seeing a drop-off in membership figures since the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Janus v. AFSCME (2018) threw a wrench in how unions finance their operations.

It also requires voice service providers to develop call authentication technologies and mandates the Federal Communications Commission to create rules outlining when a provider can block a voice call based on info from the technologies.

Pat Shurmur Fired By Giants, Dave Gettleman Kept On As GM – New York Post

The Giants have become what they always insisted and took pride in believing they were not.

A day after ending another miserable season, they canned another head coach, firing Pat Shurmur only two years into a five-year contract. There will not be a search for a new general manager, as Dave Gettleman – hired late in the 2017 season to rebuild a broken franchise – was spared and will return in 2020.

Gettleman took over a shabby roster and a dreadful salary cap situation and ownership believes he found a worthy successor to Eli Manning in Daniel Jones. The Giants since 2017 have lost more games (36) than any team in the NFL and in 2020 will have their fourth head coach in the last six years – five if you want to count Steve Spagnuolo, who filled an interim role late in the 2017 season.

Gropey Joe Attacked Texas Governor For Signing Law Allowing Churchgoers To Carry Guns – Daily Wire

Leftist Bureaucracy Update: Democrat-Run Cleveland Tells Church It Will Lose Religious Designation Because It Shelters Homeless People – Washington Standard

Earlier this week, on Christmas Eve, an order from the city of Cleveland was posted on the door of the Denison Avenue United Church of Christ, demanding that they kick out the homeless people that they had been allowing to sleep on their property or face losing their status with the city as a religious organization.

The order came from the Cleveland Division of Fire, citing code violations that they claim are dangerous for the inhabitants.

The city is following the letter of the law, in this case suggesting that it is illegal to change the official use of the building without first filling out the required paperwork and making significant changes to the property.

According to the city’s building department, for the church to give shelter to homeless people, they would need to go through a costly process of not only updating the building but also getting the required permits and licenses that would designate the building as a homeless shelter.

Six-Time Deported Undocumented Democrat Accused Of Killing Colorado Grandmother – Breitbart

Magic Wand Update: Working Class Secures Largest Wage Hikes Thanks To Tight Labor Market – Breitbart

The bottom 25 percent of American wage earners secured the largest wage hikes year-to-year compared to all others for November, newly released data reveals, thanks to President Trump’s tightening of the United States labor market.

Data from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta shows that for the lowest wage earners, Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” economy has delivered the quickest rate of wage hikes in more than a decade.

In November, the bottom 25 percent of wage earners saw their wages rise 4.5 percent compared to November 2018.

These bottom-tier workers, those earning less than all other Americans, have secured a labor market that now resembles the labor market of top-tier workers – a result of less low-skilled foreign competition against Americans through increased interior immigration enforcement.

But after years of socialist rule at the hands of dictator Nicholas Maduro, many residents can’t even afford to give their deceased family members a proper burial.

Since renting a casket can cost as little as $50, many residents find this method of honoring the dead more financially feasible, reports the news agency.

Green Psychosis Update: UK Police Wasted £1.5 Million On Electric Cars That Can’t Chase Criminals – Breitbart

Police forces in the United Kingdom have squandered over a million pounds on electric cars that are incapable of chasing criminals or performing emergency services because the eco-friendly vehicles are too slow and take too long to charge.

A freedom of information request found that police in the UK have spent £1.49 million on 448 green cars and vans. However, the actual cost of the eco-police fleets is likely much higher as many districts have not reported their purchases.

The official police reports admit that the battery-powered cars are incapable of fulfilling police duties such as chasing criminals or handling emergency response situations and often run out of power before a shift ends.

Sorry Democrats: New Zealand’s Gun Confiscation Program Just Failed Miserably – Washington Examiner

Almost every Democrat running for president supports so-called “gun buybacks.” Too bad they don’t work.

Proposals range from Joe Biden’s voluntary gun buybacks to the more radical mandatory confiscation proposed by Cory Booker. (He still misleadingly calls it a “buyback.”) So it’s worth examining how such buybacks played out recently in New Zealand, which passed a ban on the sale of semiautomatic weapons and a mandatory gun buyback program after a tragic shooting in April.

The deadline for the mandatory gun buyback program was Friday. The New Zealand program successfully led to the compensated confiscation of 51,000 of the targeted firearms. But as the left-leaning Guardian newspaper reports, this is out of an estimated 170,000 such guns currently in circulation. And there are still a minimum of 1.2 million legally owned firearms in New Zealand on top of that.

This means that many people ignored the demand that they turn in their guns and trust the supposedly benevolent government to protect them from themselves…

Kayleigh McEnany, a former CNN contributor and current National Press Secretary for the Trump 2020 campaign, said the goal was to arm Trump supporters for the holiday season.

“We’ve all seen the news articles about liberal snowflakes being afraid to see their MAGA relatives at Christmas or holiday gatherings, so the Trump campaign wants people to be ready,” she said in a statement accompanying the announcement of the site…

Pennsylvania’s First Muslim Female State Representative Forced To Resign For ‘Brazen Corruption’ – Big League Politics

Movita Johnson-Harrell was a trailblazer, an icon, and a hero for equality for becoming the first Muslim female elected to the Pennsylvania State House earlier this year.

Now, she is disgraced, unemployed, and may face jail time after being forced to resign from her post following “brazen corruption,” as described by state Attorney General Josh Shapiro.

Johnson-Harrell handed herself over to Shapiro’s office and pleaded guilty on charges of embezzling over $500,000 in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security disability funds as well as record tampering and perjury charges. She even embezzled funds given to the Motivations Education and Consultation Associates (MECA), a charity she created to help drug addicted and mentally ill minorities in her community…

MAGA Update: Retailers Make Historic $34.4 Billion During Super Saturday Sales – Breitbart

Shoppers gave retailers a massive boost Saturday by making it the biggest sales day in U.S. retail history. Super Saturday sales reached $34.4 billion thanks to a booming economy and more jobs, according to retail research firm Customer Growth Partners.

“Paced by the ‘Big Four’ mega-retailers – Walmart, Amazon, Costco and Target – Super Saturday was boosted by the best traffic our team has seen in years,” said the firm’s president, Craig Johnson.

Johnson noted that stronger household finances have “put consumers in a buying mood this season,” adding that more of them are shopping online, which has accounted for a 58 percent sales growth compared to last year.

The weekend record beat out Black Friday’s $31.2 billion and Cyber Monday’s $19.1 billion, a Fox Business report said. In November, incomes rose by half a percentage point, which caused consumer spending to rise at a 0.4 percent annual rate…

Winning: President Trump Adds Two GOP Judges To 9th Circuit Court Of Appeals – One America News

President Trump has added conservative influence to the federal appeals court best known for its Democrat judges. The Senate officially confirmed the president’s decision to add two conservative judges to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which oversees cases in the western part of the U.S.

This month, Judges Lawrence VanDyke and Patrick Bumatay were appointed by President Trump. The court, which was once dominated by liberals, now has more than a third of the president’s appointees.

It has long been lambasted as the most partisan of all 13 appeals courts due to its lack of party diversity. However, that reputation could change after the president’s latest move to rebuild the once liberal court.

Moving forward, district cases coming out of blue states, such as California, could potentially receive pushback from the Ninth Circuit on issues such as green cards, healthcare and abortion…

One of the very many reasons I would never vote Left (Democrat) is because of the child-like view of the world embraced by those with this ideology. Children, or adults with childish notions, running the world are a recipe for disaster.

This is particularly true in the economic part of our world – a world that deeply impacts each of our lives, every day of the year.

Trump Gives Us Back Our Light Bulbs – Monica Showalter

“Today the Trump Administration chose to protect consumer choice by ensuring that the American people do not pay the price for unnecessary overregulation from the federal government,” Brouillette said in a statement. “Innovation and technology are already driving progress, increasing the efficiency and affordability of light bulbs, without federal government intervention.

The Year Socialism Became A Dirty Word… Again – Flavia Krause-Jackson

It was a bad year to be any kind of socialist in Europe. The decline has been long and agonizing for a once-dominant force, but in 2019 falling popularity reached new depths and raised questions over whether reinvention can lead to a revival.

A decade ago, the prime ministers of Britain, Spain, Greece and even Hungary were from the center-left. Many went on to swiftly lose power, but then socialist governments emerged in France and Italy. Now the political brand looks like an anachronism.

Populism has tested the ability of mainstream parties to adapt and some on the center-right are regaining their footing. That cannot be said of the traditional left. It gravitated toward the middle ground in the 1990s, and then paid a price for selling out. But a pendulum swing to 1970s-style radical ideology has been shown to be just as out of sync with the times.

This year ends with the humiliation of the Labour Party in the U.K.’s Dec. 12 election and Germany’s Social Democrats more unpopular than at any time in living memory…

DemoNazi Debate Moderator Pushed Insane Notion Of Relocating Entire Cities Because Of Fake Climate Change – Newsbusters

Thursday’s Democratic debate hosted by PBS and Politico was a rather dull affair, but one question regarding climate change from Politico chief political correspondent Tim Alberta stood out as particularly nutty by any reasonable standard. In back-to-back questions, he presses candidates on their plans to pick up and relocate the entire population of certain cities.

Setting up the debate’s shift to climate alarmism, Alberta prefaced by noting that “many scientists say that even if the U.S. reduced its carbon footprint to zero by the year 2050, the damage will have been done, the climate change will have made certain places in the U.S. unlivable.”

In the question to Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Alberta wanted to know:

Liberal Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz: ‘Difficult To Imagine Anything More Unconstitutional’ Than Pelosi Withholding Impeachment Articles – CNS

If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) withholds articles of impeachment from the Senate as a negotiating tactic, it would be both unconstitutional and destructive, iconic liberal Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz declared Thursday.

“It is difficult to imagine anything more unconstitutional, more violative of the intention of the Framers, more of a denial of basic due process and civil liberties, more unfair to the president and more likely to increase the current divisiveness among the American people,” Dershowitz writes in an analysis published on Newsmax.com.

Dershowitz likens the Pelosi ploy to a prosecutor who indicts a person with no intention of bringing the defendant to trial – thus, violating his duty and denying the defendant his right to defend himself and clear his name.
