President’s policies on Israel, Iran, Qatar and climate change under attack by a rogue State Department.

The State Department’s own “deep state” is trying to sabotage President Trump’s foreign policy agenda. From the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to Iran, Qatar and climate change, the State Department, under Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, is reported to be in “open war” with the White House. Key high level positions remain vacant as Obama holdovers “continue running the show and formulating policy, where they have increasingly clashed with the White House’s own agenda,” according to the Free Beacon. Secretary Tillerson has reportedly run interference to protect the Obama holdovers from being removed, allowing resistance to President Trump’s foreign policy agenda to flourish within the State Department.

The first casualty of this internal coup by the State Department’s deep state is Israel. The shadow of the Obama administration’s anti-Israel bias was reflected in a report the State Department released on July 17, 2017 entitled Country Reports on Terrorism 2016. It praised Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for reiterating “his commitment to nonviolence, recognition of the State of Israel, and pursuit of an independent Palestinian state through peaceful means.” The report referred to what it called “significant steps during President Abbas’ tenure (2005 to date) to ensure that official institutions in the West Bank under its control do not create or disseminate content that incites violence.”

The State Department report brushed aside clear evidence of a continuing barrage of incendiary rhetoric appearing on official Palestinian Authority and Fatah social media outlets and of inflammatory statements by Palestinian officials, including Abbas himself. Instead, it claimed that the Palestinian Authority “has made progress in reducing official rhetoric that could be considered incitement to violence.”

The State Department report conveniently skipped over the fact that Abbas remains committed to paying regular salaries to Palestinian terrorists imprisoned for killing Jews and to terrorists’ families. Their perfidiously named “Martyrs Fund” has a treasure chest of about $300 million dollars. That blood money comes in part from foreign aid to the Palestinian Authority, some of which is contributed by American taxpayers. President Trump has spoken out against the ‘pay to slay Jews’ terrorist payments, but the State Department has turned a blind eye. Obama holdover Stuart Jones, the Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs, is reported to have steered Secretary Tillerson into making the erroneous claim that the Palestinian Authority had ceased spending U.S. taxpayer funds to pay terrorists, according to the Free Beacon’s sources.

After reciting the litany of Palestinian terrorist attacks against Israelis, the State Department report held Israel largely responsible:

“Continued drivers of violence included a lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood, Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank, settler violence against Palestinians in the West Bank, the perception that the Israeli government was changing the status quo on the Haram Al Sharif/Temple Mount, and IDF tactics that the Palestinians considered overly aggressive.”

Just a few hours after three members of an Israeli family were massacred by a Palestinian terrorist, a State Department official tried to defend the report’s conclusions on the drivers of Palestinian violence. The official sounded like a clinical psychologist or a social worker, declaring that there is “no one single pathway to violence—each individual’s path to terrorism is personalized, with certain commonalities.” This is the same type of irresponsible rhetoric used by the Obama administration in discussing the supposed root causes of what it called “violent extremism.”

The State Department has also carried over the Obama administration’s soft pedaling on Iran. Instead of presenting options to President Trump supporting a refusal to re-certify that Iran has complied with all of its obligations under the disastrous Obama nuclear deal with Iran, the State Department took Iran’s side. It recommended twice that President Trump sign certifications of Iran’s compliance. Deprived by the State Department of any analysis to the contrary, as he had requested, the president reluctantly signed the certifications in April and July. However, he has reportedly decided to sidestep the State Department going forward and rely instead on a White House team to prepare the way for refusing to sign the certification the next time it is presented to him. CIA Director Mike Pompeo, senior strategist Steve Bannon, and deputy assistant to the president Sebastian Gorka opposed the State Department’s recommendation.

“The president assigned White House staffers with the task of preparing for the possibility of decertification for the 90-day review period that ends in October — a task he had previously given to Secretary Tillerson and the State Department,” a source close to the White House told Foreign Policy.

Foreign Policy quoted one senior State Department, speaking on condition of anonymity, as saying, “The White House, they see the State Department as ‘the swamp.’”

The State Department is a swamp infested with Obama holdovers such as Sahar Nowrouzzadeh, the former Iran director for Obama’s National Security Council, who helped push through the Iran deal. When she moved over to the State Department during the waning months of the Obama administration, she was assigned to oversee the Persian Gulf region policy planning portfolio, which included issues related to Iran. She continued in that high-level advisory position until April of this year, when she was re-assigned to the Office of Iranian Affairs. In other words, a strong supporter of the Iranian nuclear deal with a vested interest in its continuation was on Secretary of State Tillerson’s policy planning team. Secretary Tillerson no doubt relied on this tainted team for input into his decision to recommend the first certification signing last April. Ms. Nowrouzzadeh is still working on Iranian-related issues for the State Department where she can do some damage. However, at least she is no longer part of the Secretary of State’s brain trust.

The State Department has also sought to undercut President Trump’s sharp criticism of Qatar, a major state sponsor of Islamic terrorism. The president had tweeted that Qatar funds radical Islamists, which is demonstrably true. Nevertheless, the State Department contradicted President Trump’s observation.

“We recognize that Qatar has made some great efforts to stop financing of terror groups,” said State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert at the June 6, 2017 briefing. “Our relationship with Qatar is strong.”

Dana Shell Smith, ambassador to Qatar until she left in late June, who believes that Qatar is a “great country,” was another Obama holdover. She was still the ambassador when the row over Qatar erupted. The day before Heather Nauert’s news briefing extolling Qatar’s supposed “great efforts to stop financing of terror groups,” the U.S. embassy in Qatar, still led by Dan Shell Smith, retweeted the following, which was originally tweeted during the Obama administration: “U.S. supports #Qatar’s efforts in combating terrorism financing & appreciates its role in coalition against ISIL.”

These sentiments are in direct contradiction to the views expressed by President Trump. Indeed, Smith had little use for President Trump and was not shy about saying so. Stationed in an autocratic country ruled by sharia law, she tweeted in May while still ambassador: “Increasingly difficult to wake up overseas to news from home, knowing I will spend today explaining our democracy and institutions.” Did this Trump-hater ever once think that the very idea of democracy, religious tolerance and equal rights for women are alien concepts to begin with in a country like Qatar that she called “great”?

After Smith’s departure, the State Department continued its praise of Qatar for supposedly being a partner in the fight against terrorism. In the same Country Reports on Terrorism 2016, which praised Abbas and blamed Israel for creating the conditions that fostered Palestinian terrorism, the State Department lauded Qatar for collaborating “to foster closer regional and international cooperation on counterterrorism, law enforcement, and rule of law activities.”

Finally, there is the issue of climate change. President Trump decided to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change because it disadvantaged America economically. However, the Paris Agreement was the pride and joy of Secretary of State John Kerry’s State Department. Obama holdovers have remained at the State Department, in a position to do mischief to President Trump’s plans to extricate the United States from the bad climate change deal.

Within the bowels of the State Department, for example, is the Office of the Special Envoy for Climate Change, which, according to its website, is responsible for developing, implementing, and overseeing U.S. international policy on climate change. Its website still boasts how it led the way “in the negotiations in Paris at the 21st Conference of Parties to the UNFCCC (COP21).” The website goes on to praise the Paris Agreement as the “most ambitious climate accord ever negotiated.”  This website remains operational even though President Trump has reportedly decided not to name a special envoy for climate change. The United States deputy special envoy for climate change, Trigg Talley, who served as head of the U.S. delegation for negotiations under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, remains in office, however. The opportunity for the State Department to conduct a deep state war against the president’s climate change policies is a real threat unless the Office of the Special Envoy for Climate Change is completely shut down.

There are other potential pockets of resistance to President Trump’s climate change policies inside the State Department, such as the Office of Global Change. It too should be shut down or sharply curtailed.

President Trump, not State Department bureaucrats, was elected by the American people. He should have the final say on policy matters within his scope of executive authority, which includes the setting of foreign policy priorities. Deep state saboteurs within the State Department and other government agencies need to be rooted out at once and removed from positions of influence where they can do harm to the president’s agenda.

Supreme Court Backs Trump On Strict Enforcement of Travel Ban

The Supreme Court on Wednesday brokered a new compromise over President Donald Trump’s travel ban, saying the government for now may enforce tight restrictions on refugees but also must make it easier for people from six mostly Muslim countries to enter the United States.

The court’s terse order means the administration cannot impose a blanket prohibition on people from those countries who have grandparents, aunts and uncles and other relatives in the United States. The Trump administration has advanced a stricter interpretation of what kind of family relationships could entitle a person to receive a U.S. visa, but a lower court in Hawaii ruled that the criteria were too tight.

The Supreme Court’s action on Wednesday had two parts. In one, the justices said they will not disturb the lower court’s decision that expanded the definition of close family ties.

But in another, the justice granted the government’s request to put on hold a part of the lower court’s order that would have made it easier for more refugees to enter the country. That order could have granted granted entry to about 24,000 refugees who were already working with resettlement agencies.

Wednesday’s unsigned, one-paragraph order gave no reasoning for the Supreme Court’s action. Three justices – Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch – said they would have granted the administration’s request to put the entire order on hold.

The majority said the government’s appeal of the lower court should go through normal channels, with the next stop at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

The Justice Department reacted to the action only by saying it “looks forward to presenting its arguments to the 9th Circuit.”

Hawaii Attorney General Douglas Chin said the court’s action “confirms we were right to say that the Trump Administration over-reached in trying to unilaterally keep families apart from each other.”

The National Immigration Law Center said that while “family unity won today,” it will continue to litigate “to ensure that refugees can find the shelter they were offered by settlement agencies in the United States.”

The court’s decision was the latest development in the Trump administration’s nearly six-month effort to temporarily shut down the nation’s refugee program and bar visitors from several Muslim-majority countries while officials examine vetting procedures.

The Trump administration has said the effort was needed to protect the country. Challengers have fought the ban as an unconstitutional effort at keeping out Muslims, which Trump had advocated during the presidential campaign.

The latest version of the ban bars visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. These restrictions and the refugee ban had been put on hold by lower courts.

The Supreme Court will consider the merits of the challenge to the administration’s travel ban on Oct. 10. In the meantime, the court said last month that the ban could go in effect and be applied to those without a connection to the United States, but that people with a “bona fide relationship” with a person or entity in the United States must be exempted from the ban.

The justices did not define such a relationship but gave examples of what would qualify for the exemption: a close relative in the United States, a spot in an American university, a job offer or speaking engagement.

The Trump administration interpreted the Supreme Court’s requirement of a “close familial relationship” to be a parent, spouse, fiance, son or daughter, sibling, son-in-law or daughter-in-law in the United States. The government would continue to bar refugees who had an offer from a refugee resettlement operation.

The challengers went back to U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson of Hawaii, who had earlier issued a nationwide injunction against the ban. Watson ruled last week that the government’s “narrowly defined list” of exemptions was not supported by either the Supreme Court decision or by the law.

“Common sense, for instance, dictates that close family members be defined to include grandparents,” Watson wrote. “Indeed, grandparents are the epitome of close family members. The government’s definition excludes them. That simply cannot be.”

He extended the exemptions to include those with grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. Watson wrote that refugees with an assurance from a resettlement agency are also exempt from the ban.

The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to stay Watson’s ruling.

His interpretation of what kinds of family relationships qualify “empties the court’s decision of meaning, as it encompasses not just ‘close’ family members, but virtually all family members,” the administration said in its brief to the court. “Treating all of these relationships as ‘close familial relationships’ reads the term ‘close’ out of the court’s decision.

The administration added that Watson’s ruling would cover virtually all refugees.

The state of Hawaii, which has led the challenge of the travel ban, told the justices that the government’s argument was “nonsense.” Any rule that maintained grandparents are not part of a close familial relationship was suspect as applied both to those who sought visas and refugees, the state said in its brief to the court.

“That argument is as wrong as it sounds, and nothing in this court’s opinion, the immigration laws, or common sense supports it,” the state wrote.

ICE director has bold, six-word message for MS-13 gang members

The acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement is making no bones about his agency’s commitment to dismantle the notorious MS-13 gang, a transnational criminal organization based in El Salvador.

Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan told The Daily Caller: “My gang is bigger than theirs.”

He went on to say that ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations “targets many gangs” but noted that the investigative team is decidedly focused on MS-13 because “they seem to be the most violent right now and they think they can act with impunity.”

“We’re taking this seriously. My gang is bigger than theirs, and we are going to take them out,” Homan said. “That’s the goal. The president supports that. We’re going to follow through on the president’s promise, and we are going to take out MS-13 as much as we can.”

Homan’s stark warning to MS-13 echoes comments from President Donald Trump, who last month saidthe violent gang is being “depleted” and “will be gone pretty soon.”

“They’re being thrown out in record numbers and rapidly,” the president said at the time.

La Mara Salvatrucha, later shortened to just MS-13, actually began in Los Angeles in the 1980s, when Salvadorans fled to the United States. The gang’s offshoot in Central America first sprung up when members of the organization were deported by the U.S. back to El Salvador, according to a University of Pittsburgh research paper hosted by the Justice Department’s National Criminal Justice Reference Service.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in April that MS-13 has about 30,000 members, 10,000 of whom are in the United States, the New York Times reported.

ICE HSI has arrested more than 8,000 gang members and associates between fiscal year 2016 and June 4, according to Derek Benner, acting associate executive director of the agency. Of those arrests, 602 are MS-13 members.

A recent operation carried out by ICE HSI and New York law enforcement officials led to the arrest of 39 MS-13 members in the Empire State over a 30-day period, the Times reported.

Thomas R. Decker, ICE’s New York field office director for enforcement and removal operations, described MS-13 as “a violent street gang actively wreaking havoc in the community.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Just Busted Up A $1.3 Billion Obama Era Fraud Against The Tax Payers

The more they dig, the more they’ll find. This country could run on 20 Billion a year. It’s the low lives from third world cultures who’re robbing America blind. And they’ve embedded themselves in our government.

On Thursday morning press conference Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price announced that 412 people around the country have been charged with participating in health care fraud scams totaling about $1.3 billion in false billings, including for the prescription and distribution of opioids.

Facing charges in what federal officials Thursday called the “largest ever health care fraud enforcement action” by the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, are 412 people across 41 federal districts, who the DOJ alleges have extracted $1.3 billion in false billings through a variety of unconnected schemes. The defendants include 115 doctors, nurses, and other licensed medical professionals. They were arrested in a nationwide operation that involved more than 1,000 law enforcement agents in at least 30 states.

HHS has also initiated suspension proceedings against 295 providers, including doctors, nurses, and pharmacists.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said at a news conference: “Too many trusted medical professionals like doctors, nurses, and pharmacists have chosen to violate their oaths and put greed ahead of their patients. Amazingly, some have made their practices into multimillion dollar criminal enterprises. They seem oblivious to the disastrous consequences of their greed. Their actions not only enrich themselves often at the expense of taxpayers but also feed addictions and cause addictions to start. The consequences are real: emergency rooms, jail cells, futures lost, and graveyards.”

“One American dies of a drug overdose every 11 minutes and more than 2 million Americans are ensnared in addiction to prescription painkillers. We will continue to find, arrest, prosecute, convict and incarcerate fraudsters and drug dealers wherever they are,” Sessions added.

Health care fraud is a persistent problem for the federal health insurance systems.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price said: “Health care fraud is not only a criminal act that costs billions of taxpayer dollars—it is an affront to all Americans who rely on our national health care programs for access to critical health care services and a violation of trust. The United States is home to the world’s best medical professionals, but their ability to provide affordable, high-quality care to their patients is jeopardized every time a criminal commits health care fraud.”

He added: “That is why this administration is committed to bringing these criminals to justice, as President Trump demonstrated in his 2017 budget request calling for a new $70 million investment in the Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control Program.”

Great…it’s a step in the right direction. It’s definitely time to put these parasites in jail. Bring back the rule of law and the consequences for breaking it, and the country will only benefit from it.

I’m glad these arrests happened in the war on drugs and the war on fraud waste and abuse in the federal health programs. This is what the Democrats and the Republican establishment were afraid of. Trump enforcing the rule of law and order.

This is great news. Major kudos to the dedicated federal workers who did the legwork. If we could bring all the fraud in Medical care to an end, we might actually be able to afford it.


Thank you, Jeff Session you will go down in History as Our Best DOJ. We haven’t had one in a long time.

Another LEAKER DOWN! Nobody Can Believe Who The Army Just Caught

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis must be breathing a sigh of relief tonight!  The Army, together with the FBI,  has stopped a very potentially dangerous situation involving a U.S. soldier allegedly involved with ISIS.

Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang, who has served in the Army since  2001, was arrested Saturday night by an FBI SWAT team at Schofield Barracks in Honolulu.

He has been under investigation for about a year, over multiple incidents of concern that he had become radicalized.  He served in both Iraq and Afghanistan and his father, Clifford Kang, said that his son began studying Islam while there.

The FBI arrested him for allegedly trying to give classified documents and a drone to undercover agents who he believed to be members of ISIS.

It is frightening to think that a threat such as this could be within our military.  Our country, including our President, is committed to obliterating the treat of ISIS from the face of the Earth.  It’s sad to think that the threat could be found right within our own military!

Most of our military men and women, however, are doing their best  and sacrificing so much to keep our country safe and free!  It’s good to know that people are paying attention and caught this threat before he was able to do any damage!


Moments Ago Trump And Sessions DESTROYED The One Thing Obama Hoped They Wouldn’t

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been on the war path this week against violence in American cities. On Tuesday the Attorney General released his plan to help 12 cities fight against violent crime during the National Summit on Crime Reduction and Public Safety.

This plan will involve those 12 cities joining the National Public Safety Partnership, a newly formed entity within the Department of Justice focused on combating crime. Sessions said of his new plan:

“Our new National Public Safety Partnership program will help these communities build up their own capacity to fight crime, by making use of data-driven, evidence-based strategies tailored to specific local concerns, and by drawing upon the expertise and resources of our department.

This follows right behind President Trump’s executive order in February asking the Justice Department to “take the lead on federal actions to support law enforcement efforts nationwide and to collaborate with State, tribal, and local jurisdictions to restore public safety to all of our communities.”

Check out if your city is on the list! More will be added to the plan later:

  • Birmingham, Ala.
  • Indianapolis, Ind.
  • Memphis, Tenn.
  • Toledo, Ohio
  • Baton Rouge, La.
  • Buffalo, N.Y.
  • Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Houston, Texas
  • Jackson, Tenn.
  • Kansas City, Mo.
  • Lansing, Mich.
  • Springfield, Ill.

This speech follows a ringing indictment Sessions published on Friday of the huge increases in violent crime that began during the Obama administration.

Sessions noted specifically an Obama-era rule ordering federal prosecutors to not specify the number of drugs a criminal was dealing when they were being charged if the amount would trigger a mandatory minimum sentence. This resulted in lighter sentences for offenders, which Sessions attributed to a dramatic increase in crime, saying:

“Within one year after the Justice Department softened its approach to drug offenders, the trend of decreasing violent crime reversed. In 2015 the United States suffered the largest single-year increase in the overall violent crime rate since 1991.”

Sessions concluded his statement on Friday by saying he was ending this Obama-era practice, and will instead allow prosecutors to exercise more discretion in the law’s application.

Way to go AG Sessions! I’m so glad to have people in charge who are serious and realistic about fighting crime and making cities safe for ALL Americans.

The media of course will try to spin this story with as much negativity as possible, so Share this 1 million times to show we support Sessions’ and Trump’s quest to MAKE CITIES SAFER!

“Sanctuary Cities” Are Running Out of Friends… Fast

By Benjamin Arie

Liberals act is if the entire country is on their side on the issue of illegal immigration, but the reality is often the opposite.

In the short time since Donald Trump has taken office, well over half of the states in the country have proposed legislation to make “sanctuary cities” a thing of the past… and more may be joining the bandwagon soon.

Texas was one of the most prominent states to get on board. According to The New American, Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill on May 7 that essentially bans sanctuary cities.

“The Texas law, which takes effect September 1, comes on the heels of the Trump administration’s policies to expand immigration enforcement in general, and in particular to penalize so-called sanctuary jurisdictions that limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities,” explained the Migration Policy Institute.

Texas may be the Lone Star State, but it’s certainly not alone on the issue of sanctuary cities.

“While Texas was the first state to pass a sweeping law focused on illegal immigration since the presidential election, at least 32 other states have introduced immigration enforcement bills,” MPI elaborated.

Cory Booker BURNED By Brit Hume And Boy Did He Deserve It!

Time to take a high school civics class, Cory.

Since retiring from his anchor desk, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume has become adept at tweaking the noses of the intellectually deprived, the illogically incensed and the politically uninformed.

From BizPac Review

His latest target was Sen. Cory Booker. No fly-off-the-handle firebrand is he, the New Jersey Democrat announced that he’s content to wait until the proof is in before casting judgment on the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

During an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” Sunday, Booker went through a litany of concerns he had with the current administration but countered them with a cautionary tone.

“I just want to tell you, I’m not going to rush to impeachment,” he told Bash at about 6:15 into the interview. “I think we need to deal with this in a very sobered way.”

Although his constituents no doubt applaud his level-headedness, he’s apparently confused as to how impeachment works. No matter. Hume was available to set him on the straight and narrow.

Boom! Hume called it on the money. The House votes to impeach, then afterward the Senate votes on conviction. It’s not the other way around.

Aww, and he sounded so sincere in that interview. But others on social media thought him an imbecile — and typical of what Washington has to offer, at least on the Democratic side of the aisle.
