Terrorists do not worship God. They worship death.
Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee:
Cruz brought up the law that authorized the executive order, and Yates did not recognize it. She then answered by referring to another law, which does not supersede the first. She then tried to argue that the order was unconstitutional, but Cruz pointed out that her argument was a partisan one, driven by her own policy views. She then claimed no court would enforce the order — which is contradicted by the fact that one actually did.

And the bottom line is that if he is willing to withdraw a demand of his for a measly billion dollars for the wall because the Democrats are threatening a shutdown then the Democrats will have just learned that this threat works on Trump, too, not just all the other Republicans.

Democrats are willing to shutdown the US government over Donald Trump’s $1.4 billion budget request to fund the beginning of his proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. This spending bill request represents 0.035 percent of the $3.963 trillion which the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) estimates that the federal government will spend this fiscal year.
How much money is $1.4 billion? It equates to what HHS (Department of Health and Human Services) spends every 11 hours during the year, or an amount equal to what the government collects in taxes in only 4 hours.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 40 percent or more of the babies born in the United States during the last eight years on record (2008 through 2015) were born to unmarried mothers.
The last time the percentage of babies born to unmarried mothers was below 20 percent was 1982, according to the CDC’s birth data. A baby born that year would turn 35 this year.

…the Obama administration weaponized politically our intelligence services against the Republicans and against Trump. I, for one, am not surprised. The Obama administration weaponized everything else to use against the GOP, from the IRS to NOAA to any of these agencies, EPA, involving climate change.
At noon today, the moment when Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America, control of the whitehouse.gov website also changed, and, all mentions of climate change or global warming were removed. “President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule,” the site says.
Israel has unequivocal evidence that the Obama administration led the effort to pass the anti-Israel resolution in the UN Security Council.
President Obama is like a tenant who has been evicted from a property, and he’s going to trash the place on the way out the door just out of spite.
Obama came into office amidst grand promises to restore America’s place in the world. Unless our place is the outhouse, he’s failed. But at least he feels good about his accomplishments, even if thousands have died — and thousands more will die — in order to ensure his moral stature in his own mind.
…and reaction was swift!
Fox News: A “shameful” abstention by the U.S. in a United Nations vote Friday allowed passage of a resolution condemning Israeli settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank.
Ben Shapiro: With Obama’s silent urging and acquiescence, the United Nations passed a resolution essentially declaring the holiest spot in Judaism, the Temple Mount, sovereign Muslim territory, and determining that all Jews living outside of pre-1967 lines are illegal residents on sovereign Muslim territory. Obama did this on behalf of a unity government comprised of three terrorist groups – Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and the Palestinian Authority – and to the cheers of terror-sponsors like Iran.
Mark Levin: It appears anti-Semite Obama is working with the extremist Palestinians, and using the Israel-hating UN, to undermine our ally Israel. Obama’s a disgrace. And so is anyone in his administration who participated in this. Obama’s gone in less than a month but is obsessed with doing as much damage as he possibly can. Freedom-loving people all over the world have suffered from this failed, pathetic president, including in our own country.
President-elect Donald J. Trump: As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th.
Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC): If the United Nations moves forward with the ill-conceived resolution, I will work to form a bipartisan coalition to suspend or significantly reduce United States assistance to the United Nations. In addition, any nation which backs this resolution and receives assistance from the United States will put that assistance in jeopardy.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX): I look forward to working with Sen. Graham, and with the incoming Administration of President-elect Trump, to significantly reduce or even eliminate U.S. funding of the United Nations, and also to seriously reconsider financial support for the nations that supported this resolution. For those who have put your name to this despicable attack on Israel, you did so with full knowledge of the consequences of your actions.
This 3 minute video enumerates the many channels by which Palestinians poison the future – the radical, hateful indoctrination of children. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made this speech on September 22, 2016, before the United Nations General Assembly.
Today, as in the past, diversity is essentially a fancy word for group quotas. It is one of a number of wholly subjective criteria — such as “leadership” — used to admit students to colleges and universities according to their group membership, rather than according to their individual qualifications.
“The people have spoken and the election is over, and as Hillary Clinton herself said on election night, in addition to her conceding by congratulating me, ‘We must accept this result and then look to the future.’
“It is important to point out that with the help of millions of voters across the country, we won 306 electoral votes on Election Day – the most of any Republican since 1988 – and we carried nine of 13 battleground states, 30 of 50 states, and more than 2,600 counties nationwide – the most since President Ronald Reagan in 1984.
“This recount is just a way for Jill Stein, who received less than one percent of the vote overall and wasn’t even on the ballot in many states, to fill her coffers with money, most of which she will never even spend on this ridiculous recount. All three states were won by large numbers of voters, especially Pennsylvania, which was won by more than 70,000 votes.
“This is a scam by the Green Party for an election that has already been conceded, and the results of this election should be respected instead of being challenged and abused, which is exactly what Jill Stein is doing.”

I would add that, in addition to the aforementioned, the process of conducting a recount of the election results – a need for which no evidence has been asserted – will transition to become a tool of propaganda for the left, used in attempting to cast aspersions of illegitimacy upon President Donald Trump.
However, as this election has duly demonstrated, Americans aren’t so gullible as to fall for such blatantly dubious acts of ill will. Sorry, Crooked Hillary – no soup for you!
Finally, after two weeks of close scrutiny, Michigan’s 16 electoral college votes have been awarded to Donald J. Trump – the first republican candidate to win Michigan since 1988.
The state’s Board of Canvassers will officially certify the results on Nov. 28th, making the final vote count: Trump (306), Clinton (232).
