Jerusalem Embassy Act of ‘95 (Senate vote 93-5 & I voted for it) states embassy should be in Jerusalem by 5/31/99. For 18 yrs, Rep + Dem presidents waived. Congrats Pres Trump for making this move. Amen!!!

Yes I skimmed its a good primer, people who should know better like d'souza use 21st century perspective on a poor country boy who rose so high in the early 19th century.

Is it wrong to want these pols and media types to DIAF?

If it's wrong, I don't want to be right.

Well there is fake news and then there is even fakier reviews. Guy in Dulwich (SE London) pranks trip advisor by making his garden shed the no. 1 restaurant in London.

City-Journal.org, linked by Insty.
"Mohammad bin Salman, a 32-year-old too young to be a partner in most law or finance firms, has managed, by intrigue not yet fully disclosed, to supplant his cousin Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef as heir to the throne and to carry out a purge of the royal family breathtaking in its sweep. Imagine: not only did bin Salman order the arrest of at least ten other princes and a score of former government ministers, now held in luxurious restraint in Riyadh’s Ritz Carlton; he also supposedly had Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, one of the world’s richest men and a major shareholder of 21st Century Fox, Citigroup, Apple, Twitter, and a host of other giant Western corporations, hanged upside down and beaten in an “anti-corruption” investigation."

CLEVELAND -- Agents from the IRS, FBI and HUD conducted a late-night investigation (raid) at Cleveland City Hall. IRS Special Agent Craig Casserly confirms the agencies conducted “law enforcement activity” after business hours Wednesday night

Probably removing all of Zack Reed's empty liquor bottles. It's been all over the news this morning but nobody knows specifically what it's about although there's some speculation that misspent community development money might be at the bottom. Yes, shocking if so.

Btw, Miss Marple should be aware that Mark Levin admitted being wrong last night when he stated six months ago that DJT wouldn't honor his pledge to move the embassy to Jerusalem. Ol' Yeller spent the entire show praising the President.

The funny thing is those progs think finding a mom playing with her toddlers and making a typo creepy, gross and evidence of stupidity makes the target of their sick vindictiveness look bad.

Hard to believe we won a two front war against the most powerful adversaries of our age.

re the Embassy move to Jerusalem---> "leverage made out of political thin air."

I don't care what the critics say about POTUS: he is outplaying the Black Hats who are 1000% focused on sacking his administration---- meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Media stares at Twitter waiting for something to happen like cows staring at a new gate.

Ride herd, Mr. President. Ride herd.

Captain Hate,

Levin gets a lot of credit from me for admitting he was wrong. For him, that's not an easy thing to do, and it displays integrity that he did it on air.

Thanks for the information!

Captain Hate

Btw the Jerusalem announcement was surely timed after getting the Saudis to cut off the terrorist funding spigot. Now the Persian assholes have to decide carefully how to dole out the dwindling pallets of cash that Office of the Immediate Ex President occupant Cock Curious sneakily sent them; and the Hamas and Hezzzzzzzzzbolla vermin are all of a sudden less important.

That's how you execute a peace process, State Department turds.

Might have turned out different if reading stuff like Vonnegut wasn't required in high school.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Captain Hate,

One of the most amazing things to me is that it took Donald Trump to show all of these peole in government how to use the finances and money trail to exert leverage and force actions with adversaries.

Pompeo talked about it when he had that interview with Brett Baier.

Domestically, it seems he is cutting the dem funding sources bit by bit. First, a bunch of Hollywood doors are revealed as scumbags and are under investigation, so they can't afford to donate and their money, if conated, would have an adverse effect on a campaign.

Second, Mulvaney is i charge of that bogus consumer bureau, which is going to stop diverting money to left wing groups.

Third, the announcement that the government would switch sides and argue against letting the SEIU and the government employees unions collect dues from non-members.

Chipping away at their funding is extremely important. I am glad to see this happening.

Old Lurker

Cap'n, whatever is happening in the ME, you know with absolute certainty the it is choreographed in micro detail by Trump, Israel and SA.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Levin is what a principled Trump skeptic looks like.
His objection truly was based on a fear Trump was a lib in sheep's clothing. When he turns out to be more conservative than almost anyone thought Levin can admit he was mistaken and is pleased to have been proven wrong.

Contrast that adult behavior with the nevertrump brigades of striplings and mewling infants too immature and insecure to back down off their capture the true conservative flag hill.

Old Lurker

MM, I would love to see Mulvaney and others not just stop, but try to claw back as much of that funding as they can. Get the IRS to freeze their bank accounts and force the groups to go to court to get them unfrozen just as the IRS does to convenience store owners for depositing $9,999 several times in one month. Yes siree. That Civil Asset Forfeiture is a wonderful tool as the AG said.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Pruitt ending "sue and settle" and others challenging many of these "settlements" that are nothing more than prog slush funds.
No wonder they're screaming bloody murder.

Kevlar Kid

Okay.... tossing this out for some shootin' practice by those who *think* POTUS is not what he's cracked up to be by true believers (e.g. Miss Marple, me). From Sundance: "Traditionally, politicians have trained the media and general electorate to think of a President that focuses on one single policy initiative at a time. However, specifically because he’s not a politician, the approach of President Trump is to have multiple policy initiatives advancing simultaneously.

The opposition is forced to narrow their focus and target one if they wish to try and stop it. However, as soon as they zero-in on one endeavor they want to attack, Trump fires out another signal flare (twitter), which takes them off task.

It’s a stunning playbook.

Normally we think in terms of the media taking the Presidency off-message. However, for the first time in our lifetime we have a Presidency that is actually adept at keeping the media off message. How’s that for a paradigm shift."

Janet 🚬

Yes, MM. That is what always needed to happen.

Cut off the leftist supply lines.

Leftist organizations can exist, but they need to make it on their own without ANY taxpayer money. Same for right leaning orgs too, but there aren't as many of them.

It is SO frustrating as a conservative, that our taxes fund those orgs.that we are trying to stop!

NEWS: 8 countries, including France, Egypt, and the UK, have requested an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council over Trump's #Jerusalem decision, says @Reuters.
================================
Why does this require a Security Council meeting?

Old Lurker

Janet, most of it is not "tax money" so much as "directed settlement" protection money exacted by government thugs with baseball bats in return for backing off "that nice business you got there...".

Ask Jamie Dimon.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Ignatz,

Thanks for reminding me about Pruitt ending "sue and settle."

That's FOUR major sources drying up!

Janet,

You know what else? I want to know what Betsy DeVos is doing with educational grants. I bet those are being reined in as well, but I haven't seen any news stories about it yet.

re the Prog gravy train: the piggy has been caught by its toe. the 501 c 3 gravy train has been derailed.

There's more to go and the piggy shouldn't be let go no matter how much piggy hollers.

In fact, POTUS should declare the prog non-profits are going to be audited to ensure they are not *LOBBYING* with any of their budgets----> which they all do under the cloak of "advocacy work."

My first wife has been a lefty non-profit type all of her career (since 1977) and the way they got influence was by lobbying directly in DC under the guise of "advocacy for those without a voice."

Time to stomp on that technicality and impose some jail time retroactively (nuttin personal, deary!).

Miss M, Why does this require a Security Council meeting?

Sounds like an excuse to free up some prime NYC real estate.

re the Consumer Protection scam.... the shakedown and laundering function needs to be shut down pronto.

A good first step is to put it directly under an Executive Branch staff department like Mulvaney's. That was a big battle to win with English and the Chuck and Nancy and Fauxcahontas show. Up until now there hassn't been any oversight, just overreach.

Once the shakedown and laundering function has been shut down, the money trail needs to be unearthed and put under a very bright light.

Who got that money?

Why?

And, now, how is it being put to use?

Audit the tits off that boar and threaten jail time for using those funds to lobby Congress.

This is what the 501 c 3's do and the piggies in Congress get sandbagged into voting pro-Swamp while the lobbyists get their gravytrain items tacked onto "sugar subsidies" as a rider that no one thinks to look for in that poke.

Tedious.

Grinding.

Arduous Swamp Draining.

Good time to be a bean counter.

This President loves Bean Counting.

Bean counting is like sand in the pumphouse gears that keep water flowing into the Swamp for keeping the critters covered up just enough and keep the daylight off their shady operations.

That money is funding anti-borders initiatives (immigrant "rights advocacy" in particular--- how do all of the illegal Mexican squatters get attorneys not of the public defender variety? do we need to even ask?), Voter identification suppression, *BLACK LIVES MATTER* spinoffs, ANTIFA spinoffs, student loan default subsidies, residential solar power subsidies (paying for all those robo-call minutes!), door-to-door canvassing for "environmental" (global warming)central planning, subsidies to metro governments for constructing more "bike" lanes (huge government buys of concrete, paint, and steel to implement--- all filtered through somebody's cousin's construction firm),
you name it.

Cut overreach through oversight.

Make it impossible for Lizbo Warren and Company to "keep their promises" to the rank and file and the party apparatchiks.

End the Soviet-style politburo funding scam and the Swamp begins to suffer from dry rot. Cash is the lube. Daylight is the disinfectant.
