Long before the Russians were playing both sides of the Trump-Hillary presidential race, Barack Obama was making a habit of interfering in foreign elections.
From Kenya to Egypt to Britain, the Obama White House schemed and maneuvered to get its guy elected.
Talk about hypocrisy!
The most flagrant example occurred in Israel, where Obama didn’t even try to conceal his involvement in attempting to unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
As Michael Chapman over at CNS News previously wrote:
According to the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI), the State Department gave $349,276 in U.S. taxpayer-funded grants to a political group in Israel to build a campaign operation, which subsequently was used to try to influence Israelis to vote against conservative Benjamin Netanyahu in the March 2015 election for prime minister.
The State Department had funded a series of grants in 2013-2014, totaling $349,276, which went to the One Voice Movement, which has Israeli and Palestinian branches: One Voice Israel and One Voice Palestine.
OneVoice even informed the State Department about its anti-Netanyahu campaign “during the federal grant period,” said Marc Thiessen, a resident fellow of the American Enterprise Institute. “But the State Department did nothing.”
OneVoice went on to use those American taxpayers’ dollars to influence Israeli voters against Netanyahu.
But, the scheme failed.
Still, for Democrats to now so vocally bemoan Russian interference in our election process is just the height of hypocrisy.
Stormy Daniels is once again in the news, but this time it’s because her manager, Gina Rodriguez has been subpoenaed by the FBI since reports are now confirming that Rodriguez has disclosed information to the FBI about Daniels attempt to sell the story of the alleged affair with Donald Trump for $200k in the months leading up to the 2016 Presidential election.
To make matters worse for Stormy, the FBI also required Rodriguez to submit any communications between herself and the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, Stormy’s attorney, and any communications between Rodriguez and Stormy herself. This move was brought on after the FBI learned that Rodriguez spoke with multiple celeb gossip magazines, TV shows, and even websites in hopes of finding a buyer for Stormy’s alleged affair story.
Rodriguez’s scheme fell apart though when Stormy took the $130k from Trump’s attorney instead of the $200k they had planned to sell the story for. If this is proven true, then it once again proves Stormy Daniels is likely a liar after she has said on multiple occasions that the President’s lawyer reached out to her out of the blue and she was never trying to profit from the alleged affair.
Rodriguez is a former adult star who quit the business back in 2008. She has represented others in the industry as well as Stormy, Some of these have been Octomom and Sydney Leathers who is the famed texting partner of Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner.
CNN also covered Rodriguez and her issues with the FBI: “Stormy Daniels’ former manager, who helped broker her confidentiality agreement, is cooperating with the FBI as part of its probe of an arrangement she struck with Donald Trump’s lawyer, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.
Gina Rodriguez responded to a subpoena by handing over records to the FBI. Some of those documents pertain to the 2016 hush money agreement signed by Daniels and Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney. Cohen signed the agreement on behalf of a shell company he owned known as Essential Consultants LLC, according to the source.
Rodriguez has signed a confidentiality agreement that keeps her from talking about the Daniels deal with Cohen, the source said.
In the documents Rodriguez handed over to the FBI, there is evidence that Daniels — an adult film star whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford — was working an initial deal with Cohen on October 10, 2016. Daniels was being represented in that deal by Rodriguez and Daniels’ then-attorney Keith Davidson, according to the same source.
As CNN previously reported, that deal fell through when Cohen failed to pay the money. Eighteen days later, the second deal was finalized by Daniels and Cohen.
Around the same time negotiations with Cohen were going on behind the scenes, Daniels and her manager were shopping a story to several media organizations about Daniels’ alleged affair with Trump a decade ago.
Cohen has said that the President did not have a sexual relationship with Daniels. Trump has said he knew nothing of the financial arrangement between his lawyer and Daniels.
But during a recent phone interview with Fox News, Trump said Cohen “represents me like with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal, he represented me.”
Daniels is suing Cohen and Trump, and Essential Consultants LLC, in federal court in California over the legality of the 2016 hush agreement in which she was paid $130,000 to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump.”
Stormy Daniels 15 minutes of fame might be up. Critics believe she used the story about the affair as a way to spark her dancing and/or adult career. Daniels was basically an unknown in the adult world before the incident of the alleged affair with Donald Trump. Now she appears to be a household name, however, it’s probably not the way someone wants to be popular.
Do you think Stormy did all of this on purpose? Do you think anyone really cares what she has to say? Do you think Stormy is in trouble with the FBI? What about her lawyer and former manager?

All of us want to get the results of a hard workout, speedy metabolism, improved balance, reduced risk of injuries, decreased stress, heightened flexibility and toned abs. Everybody starts with confidence, fully motivated going to the gym and lifting heavy weight, but that lasts until we feel too sore to open our car door and drive home. It feels very good until we start realizing that our daily schedule is way too busy for us to spend that much time in the gym each day.
But there is a simple and very effective exercise called the plan exercise, and it provides amazing benefits, just as much as a full workout. And that is not the best thing, it can also be preformed anywhere, anytime and how you like it. Find those positions that make you feel like you are burning fat the most, and do them every day for about 10 minutes.
7 REASONS TO START DOING PLANKS WORKOUT EVERY DAY
1. Improve Body Posture
The lifestyle we live today is quite conductive to slouching. But doing the plank exercise on daily basis will create a stable and straight posture. Our abdominal muscles are the ones that are vital for the positioning of our shoulders, chest, neck and back.
2. Enhance Performance and Core Definition
The plank exercise is strengthening our core muscles, and builds our body in the next ways:
Glutes — Results are toned and strong buttocks.
Oblique Muscles — The capacity for waist-twisting and side-bending will be increased.
Rectus Abdominous — Defines the abs, and improves jumping.
Transverse Abdominis — Improves the ability to lift heavier weights.
3. Boosts our Metabolism
Doing the plank exercise regularly will make your metabolism to maintain a higher metabolic rate throughout the whole day, therefore burn more energy.
4. Improve Overall Balance
The side plank exercise is enhancing the balance capabilities of our body, and every general ability in all type of exercises as well.
5. Increased Flexibility
While you do the plank exercise your shoulders, shoulder blades, toes, arches, hamstrings, and collarbone are expanded and stretched out. To oblique the muscles the side plank exercise is perfect, at the same time stretching out your toes, that will support in the body weight.
6. Mental Benefits
While in this position your nerves and mood are influenced, by the stretch of your muscles, which release stress and tension. This is very beneficial in case of depression or anxiety because it relaxes our brain as well.
7. Lowers the risk of Spine and Back Injury
The plank exercise is strengthening our muscles without putting much pressure on our spine and our hips. Therefore this exercise is supportive for our back, while relieving camps and pain at the same time.
Do It Right!
In order to get the benefits of the exercise make sure you don’t do these mistakes and try to avoid them as much as possible!
Hold your breath.
Allow your head, hips and shoulders to drop down.
Try holding the position longer, it is much wiser to preform it correctly and maintain the correct position for a shorter period, than to be in an incorrect position for a longer period.
Placing your hands too close will cause instability in the shoulder joints and internal rotation.
This is one of the most simple exercises that provide the most effects, support your body weight and strengthen you muscles as well. Nothing is more simple that this exercise, even a challenging physical exercise. Start from your own level and build your way to the top. The results that will be noticeable after a short period of time will keep you motivated and they will make your work out even more.
21 Day Plank Exercise Challenge
Days 1 to 2: One set for half a minute planks.
Days 3 to 7: Do two sets for half a minute planks, it is best to do one set in the morning and one set before going to sleep. If it is too easy for you, boost it up to 60 second planks.
Days 8 to 10: Keep it up with at least 2 sets of a minute planks every day. This is the time when you can get sloppy, focus on the position, try to maintain the correct one from the beginning to the end!
Days 11 to 15: Try some variations of the plank exercise. Start on the forearms supporting, then you can raise yourself to balance with your hands, than one hand, than the other one, than lower your back, and with your forearms again. Do this until 60 seconds have passed.
Days 16 to 18: Push yourself to the limit, aim the time as much as possible, start with 90 seconds than go to 120, and do more if you can, but never run out of focus of your position and the form of your body.
Days 19 to 21: Do some variations, shaken up a little bit. Do one set in he morning than in the evening and try to beat your own records of doing the exercise.
Bernie Sanders has just proven once and for all how biased he truly is against Christians. He proved that once again recently when he violated a Constitutional mandate that you are not allowed to apply a religious test when running for office.
The Vermont senator criticized White House Deputy Budget Director nominee Russell Vought for his Christian beliefs in relation to Islam. Sanders declared he would oppose Vought on those grounds, basing his decision on an article Vought wrote in defense of Wheaton College.
“This is the fundamental problem,” Vought wrote. “Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ his Son, and they stand condemned.”
“It is hateful,” Sanders said of the writing. “It is Islamophobic. And it is an insult to over a billion Muslims throughout the world.”
Sanders went on to grill Vought, asking him if he believed that the statement in his article was Islamophobic.
“Absolutely not. I’m a Christian and I believe in a Christian set of principles based on my faith,” Vought stated. “That post, as I stated in the questionnaire to this committee, was to defend my alma mater, Wheaton College, a Christian school that has a statement of faith that includes the centrality of Jesus Christ for Salvation.
“I understand you are a Christian. But this country is made up of people who are not just — I understand that Christianity is the majority religion, but there are other people who have different religions in this country and around the world,” Bernie fired back.
Vought responded by saying, “As a Christian, I believe that all individuals are made in the image of God and are worthy of dignity and respect regardless of their religious beliefs.”
“I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who is really what this country is supposed to be about,” Sanders concluded. “I will vote no.”

Let’s talk about the debacle that is the current Department of Justice.
In all fairness, the state of the DOJ is not the fault of the current administration. We do have ample reason to believe that it has been allowed to become politicized under prior administrations. However, the current state of the Department seems at times to be damn near rebellion against the President of the United States.
While no one should ever expect the nation’s top law enforcement agencies to swear an oath of unquestionable loyalty to any single president over their own duty, it should still be expected that members of those agencies continue to act in a professional manner and respect the office. We simply do not see that very much right now.
Leaks, text messages, and the like have called into question whether or not these agencies can effectively serve their duty under Donald Trump. You can argue against that opinion all you want, but you would have no problem making the same claim if Barack Obama were still in power or if Hillary Clinton had won the election instead.
When he took office, Trump offered the job of Attorney General – the leader of the DOJ – to Jeff Sessions, and Sessions has done very little to convince the public that he is even doing the job at all.
He has done nothing to reform the DOJ, letting these agencies do as they please. There has been no show of leadership, other than a recusal from the central investigation into Trump’s transition (a fair recusal, as he was a key adviser to Trump leading up to his election and transition).
He has remained singularly focused on marijuana laws, almost as though he believes that eliminating it would solve all of our problems. Nevermind the myriad other reforms that can and should be taken to change the way the DOJ is perceived and how they do their job. This focus remains at the expense of solving other, more real problems.
Most importantly, however, Sessions has remained quiet and on the sideline during this entire memo fiasco.
The Department of Justice, if nothing else, looks like it is a chicken without a head. Maybe it is. I’m not even sure sometimes that Sessions is really alive.
It is time for Donald Trump to fire Jeff Sessions, or at least ask for his resignation. It is time to find someone who can lead that Department out of the flames that seem to keep rising from it and essentially start over.
If the President reads this, I would hope he takes the following advice when looking for someone to replace Sessions with.
Find someone who is not a sycophant. Barack Obama had this nasty habit of keeping his inner circle filled with Yes Men. They were insulated from the rest of the world and had no real, practical skills to offer for many of their jobs. Trump should hire someone from the outside, because if he himself is the outsider he says he is, then he should understand the value of an outside perspective.
Get someone young, energetic, and eager to work.Sessions does not look, talk, or act like someone who is gung ho about his job. He looks like a bureaucrat who stopped actually working six years ago and is going through the motions. Get someone who has at least a youthful look to them, and someone who is eager to step in and do the job.
Pick someone who is reform-minded. The Department of Justice is in desperate need of reform. It needs to be reshaped into something more efficient and less politicized. It needs to be able to do its job without the strings being overly pulled by a chief executive – even Trump himself.
If Trump can find someone who would even want the job and fits this description, then we have a chance to finally help him move past all this pointless drama and focus instead on the investigations that matter – yes, including the Russia investigation.
It’s time for a change. I hope Trump has the courage to make it happen.
After eight years of Obama, the field of “journalism” has become a joke. Thankfully, there are still some honest journalists out there.Bill O’Reilly came out swinging against Obama and his connections. O’Reilly explained that Obama’s “emotional attachment to the Muslim world has hurt” the United States; and that, “The Obama administration’s greatest failure is allowing the Islamic terror group ISIS to run wild, murdering thousands of innocent people all over the world, including many Muslims.”
Thank you, Mr. O’Reilly. We can always count on you for the truth.
The Obama era made it too easy for radical Islam to spread. Obama needs to admit that he failed our country.
Radical Islam is not compatible with our values. We do not want Sharia law in our country.
We need to take a stand against the spread of radical Islam. Thank goodness Donald Trump is not afraid to say the words “radical Islam.”
We finally have a president that isn’t going to kneel before the “politically correct” altar. What a refreshing change!
Unfortunately, the liberals are conspiring against him. The Left won’t rest until they have ruined our great nation. The establishment is helping the Left, too. The swamp is working overtime to eject Trump from the presidency. Every day we hear stories about “impeachment.” Nonsense!
mainstream media loves to spin Trump’s actions into failure. Luckily, Mr. O’Reilly is still around to give a “No Spin Zone.” The liberals love to silence conservative voices.
Thankfully, they cannot silence Mr. O’Reilly. He will say what needs to be said. Bill O’Reilly is not going anywhere. He will not allow the liberals to take him down. We need more honest journalists like Mr.
A jubilant President Trump tweeted on Thursday to announce that five of the ‘Most Wanted leaders of ISIS‘ have been captured after they were lured from Syria to Iraq with fake Telegram messages.
Iraqi officials used the cell phone of already captured ISIS lieutenant Ismail al-Eithawi to send instructions via the app for the four other leaders to come to Iraq, where they were seized.
The encrypted app was officially named by ISIS as one of its favored mobile messaging services in 2015 and has been regularly used by the terror group for private communication and to spread propaganda.
Al-Eithawi, who also uses the alias Abu Zaid al-Iraqi, was captured in February by Turkish intelligence and handed
over to the Iraqis.
Eithawi was a direct aide to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, responsible for fund transfers to the group’s bank accounts in different countries.
Saddam al-Jamal, a Syrian who was accused of taking part of a massacre in the province of Deir Ezzor in 2014 which killed 700 members of a tribe that rose up against ISIS, was the second most senior member to be captured.
Trump tweeted about the capture, which included two of the highest-ranking ISIS commanders ever to be taken alive
Apart from al-Eithawi and al-Jamal, the operation captured three field commanders: Syrian Mohamed al-Qadeer
and two Iraqis, Omar al-Karbouli and Essam al-Zawbai, Hashimi said.
Iraqi intelligence released images of the five men on national television on Wednesday.
Al-Eithawi and al-Jamal are the two most senior Islamic State figures ever to be captured alive.
The former served as ISIS governor in Syria’s eastern Euphrates region and as a minister in charge of the group’s so-called education department.
Al-Jamal, meanwhile, had previously been a commander in the Free Syrian Army and then leader of a western-allied ‘moderate’ Islamist group called Ahfab al-Rasoul.
This was effectively destroyed by ISIS following a military campaign, and al-Jamal reappeared in an ISIS video to say he had defected from his former group which he branded ‘stooges’ of the West, according to The London Times.
As head of ISIS in Deir Ezzor, he is accused of overseeing the murders of 700 members of the Shaitat tribe after it rebelled against ISIS.
Al-Jamal is said to have ordered the execution of children, sometimes in front of their parents.
Washington Times reports: Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.
“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer. This isn’t the first time calls for arresting leaders of sanctuary cities have been made.
Oh so what’s going on in US sanctuary cities during President Trump actually is supporting the Federal arrests of sanctuary city mayors like Bill De Blasio of NYC and Rahm Emanuel of Chicago.
If the DHS is fully prepared to make Federal arrests of US city leaders that are allowing Sanctuary for illegals, then this could mean in itself an end of Sanctuary for illegal immigrants across the board.
Also with this if the DHS does Federally prosecute leaders of Sanctuary Cities in America, then along with that we could see a massive drop in crime across these cities…
As violent crimes and other crimes are rising across multiple US Sanctuary Cities.
This move by DHS preparing to arrests Sanctuary City leadership really makes you curious if these Sanctuary City mayors are on the list of almost 10,000 sealed indictments?
