Even while keeping up a very demanding campaign, President Trump is continuing to work on longstanding campaign pledges. He issued a new Executive Order to expose more upper policy-making positions in the Executive Branch to management correction.
Roman Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States between 2011 and 2016, today (2020-06-07) published a letter [original PDF] to U.S. president Donald Trump in which he warns,
In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media. In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness.... [Read More]
Remember how President Trump rocked the boat at NATO in July of 2018, and then held a summit with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki? And how Dems, Nevers and Talking Snake Media all went nuts when President Trump took Putin at his word, instead of repeating the blather from U.S. intelligence agency professionals ?
At the time, we said at Happy Warriors that we liked Trump’s performance, and we only wished he had been more aggressive. In the Helsinki joint press conference, President Trump was challenged about did he trust the American intelligence community. We said at the time that we wished he had said:... [Read More]
Vice President Mike Pence told the press what he had been told by General Michael Flynn, the new National Security Advisor, which was that Michael Flynn had not told Russian Ambassador Kislyak to hold off on acting in response to President Obama’s last-minute insult to Russia. Attorney General Sally Yates went running to tell White House lawyer Don McGahn that Flynn had lied to Mike Pence.
President Trump fired Michael Flynn on February 13, 2017. In November that year, Michael Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI.... [Read More]
The GOP lost the House of Representatives. Chairmanships will flip from Republican to Democrat. The House Committee on the Judiciary will go from control by Bob Goodlatte to control by Jerrold Nadler. Nadler has said that the current investigations will end and new investigations will begin.
Is there a difference between political morals and personal morals?
When the ramping up and campaigning began in 2015, I was dismayed to see Donald Trump in the top half of the candidates who announced. I perceived him as a bombastic arrogant New Yorker of low morals. Is that an unfair characterization?... [Read More]
Wow! Three possibilities come to mind after James Clapper told us the Trump campaign should be glad they were being spied on er, “helped” by the intelligence community. 1. He thinks we are very, very stupid and/or gullible. 2. He, as a representative of the deep state, is seriously out of touch with the general public. 3. He is certain beyond any doubt that the MSM will support his unsupportable assertion. Actually, I think all three apply.
Would not an ordinary person, presented with the assertion that intelligence agencies were not spying on the Trump campaign but trying to “protect” it from Russian interference, immediately conclude this cannot be true for one simple reason? Say, for instance, a law enforcement entity thought I was under a threat of some kind, wouldn’t they tell me about it right off the bat and ask me to alert them of anything suspicious? Wouldn’t they have ardently sought the assistance of highly-placed individuals in the campaign?... [Read More]
