Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh was given special power by the State legislature when it passed legislation taking away the governor’s discretion for legal action and giving it directly to the AG. This was done in order to allow Frosh to sue Trump over his immigration Executive Order. The EO was perfectly legal and Constitutional but liberals like Frosh are not keen on following the law or the Constitution (the Supreme Law of the land and coincidentally, the state of Maryland) as evidence by Frosh and his cronies in Annapolis with regard to gun control. These cretins disregard the constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms and don’t bat an eye. In any event, Frosh took to his new powers so he could sue the Trump Administration.
Now AG Frosh is begging the federal government not to decapitate Obamacare subsidies in the next budget (or continuing resolution as the case may be) because it will take away a lot of federal money that goes to drug addiction treatment. I don’t think Republicans in Congress, and President Trump in particular, would keep funding just for lil ole Brian Frosh and his concerns BUT perhaps Frosh should have thought about the consequences before he sued the President over a perfectly legal Executive Order. If it actually came down to should we or shouldn’t we because of Maryland do you think President Trump would be more or less likely to capitulate?
That also brings us to the real insanity. Why should a state have to beg the federal government for funding? States generate a lot of money. Even states that have no income or sales taxes generate income. Why should those states send all this money to the federal government only to beg for it later on? States should be responsible for their own existence and the federal government should only be involved in things that it is supposed to be involved in under the Constitution. If this actually happened we could shrink the size of the federal government and states would be more sovereign.
But Frosh and his ilk would rather get on their knees (a familiar position) and beg for money. Screw them. Cut every dollar that goes for Obamacare.
Speaking of Obamacare subsidies it looks like the Democrats in Congress are demanding that the budget or CR contain an extension of Obamacare subsidies. You see, Obamacare is failing and the Democrats want to pump more money into it so they are claiming there will be no budget if it does not get included. These morons will always threaten a shutdown if they do not get what they want. Even when they are the minority party they act like they are in charge.
To complicate matters further President Trump wants money for a border wall included in the budget. Democrats (including a liberal moron I work with) say “I thought the Mexicans were going to pay for it”. They will but we need up front money at first and yes, there are plenty of ways to make them pay.
The way I see it the Republicans, the ones supposed to be the majority, should take out Obamacare money and add border wall money and tell Democrats that they must take it or leave it. If all Republicans vote for it and Democrats do not then it will be they who are responsible for the shutdown of government. Perhaps Republicans can use parliamentary tricks to get it passed. Maybe they can introduce the border wall and Obamacare monies in separate standalone bills and they can all vote on them separately. No matter what, now is not the time to compromise with these morons.
Before anyone (particularly anyone from Congress) tells me how urgent this is and how we are almost out of time let me remind you that these pukes have been on vacation for two weeks. They got back last night and today and they now have three days to get a budget. If it was so damned important or so urgent they should have stayed in town and gotten it done. Short on time is no excuse for them not doing what they said they would do.
Looks like there is opposition to a border wall now (by the same Democrats who voted for one in the early part of this century). My how times have changed because we have a person in office who is actually working to get the wall. Voting for one when there is never any intention of building one or when the can can be kicked down the road is different than actually doing it.
President Trump is working to get a wall built. Those who claim we can’t do it use Google and search Great Wall of China or Berlin Wall. Those should show it can be done. We have illegals in this country and they are sucking up valuable resources. They take welfare and other things like healthcare (which Obama said they would not – You Lie!) and they are a menace to society. You will not read this in many places because the MSM calls them immigrants and always leaves the word ILLEGAL out of the equation. This is a deliberate attempt to make it seem normal to be here illegally.
It is not.
In California the morons there have special driver’s licenses for ILLEGAL immigrants and now those illegals claim they are worried the feds will use the database to deport those here illegally. The government SHOULD use that database to get rid of people here illegally. Just because California is breaking the law does not mean the feds should ignore it. The state assures illegals they will not turn over that information to the feds. I imagine a subpoena for it would do the trick. In any event, if you are here illegally you are breaking the law and if you are found and deported then that is YOUR problem.
Illegal immigration is down since Donald Trump took office. Now it is time to build a wall and clean up the rest of the illegal immigration mess.
It is unfortunate that we have so many liberals running around mucking thinks up. I do like seeing morons like Frosh begging after spitting in the face of the President. I also like how Democrats warn of poison pills and upsetting the budget process only a few short years after their take it or leave it approach to governing.
Screw them. Go for broke and go for it all and if they do not vote for it make sure the public knows that Democrats refused to vote for the budget.
On a side note I bet if government does shutdown (unlikely because they will pass a short CR to keep working things out) the President will not close things that are self-funding or unmanned like the petulant one Obama did.
Never surrender, never submit.

Michael Bastasch wrote about Bill Nye the Science Guy and how he misquoted the Constitution this past Saturday (and has evidently done that before) with regard to science. Bastasch says this is why they do not call Nye the Constitution Guy.
What did Nye say? At a rally for science on Saturday (a rally where people showed up to protest cuts to the federal budget in some of the science areas like the bogus man made global warming) Nye quoted only part of the Constitution to give the impression that the federal government had some Constitutional duty to provide funds for science. Nye made this claim:
“And it is interesting to note, I think, that Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution refers to the progress of science and the useful arts”.
Which mirrored what he said in a 2015 Vox interview:
“Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution says the government shall ‘promote the progress of science and useful arts’”.
There is one small problem here and that is Nye is not giving the entire phrase from the Constitution. Article 1 Section 8 lists eighteen things Congress is authorized to do and among those is:
“To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.”
This power deals with copyrights and patents. It allows for the granting of these things for limited duration (though successive limited grants were not deemed unconstitutional) in order to promote the sciences and the arts. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say the taxpayer (which is where federal money comes from) is supposed to PAY for the sciences or the arts.
Our nation spends a boatload of money on many things not authorized by the Constitution. If we do not get a handle on this then the people marching in the rain in DC for the government not to cut taxpayer funding of the sciences will not have to worry. There won’t be money for anything at all.
Liberals are good at leaving out parts of the Constitution. Like Nye did with the sciences and the arts, liberals always leave out the second part of the Establishment Clause. The part of the First Amendment that states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, is often used by liberals to claim that nowhere in government (or in most of society it seems) is religion allowed and they do this while conveniently leaving out the second part of the clause that reads, “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”. They do this because they are infringing on your right to freely exercise YOUR religion. Liberals are good at ignoring the things that do not fit their point of view.
I know that people who live off government or are not responsible have no concept of how things are supposed to work. The reality is these folks want others to pay for things through the forced taking of their money.
It is a crying shame that people are not bright enough to see what is happening. I know there will be screams to tax the rich but the rich pay most of the taxes now. If you took all the money that all the rich people had you could run our government for three months but then you would not get any more money because you took it all. Government (and by that I mean the politicians and the people who suckle at the teat of government) has an insatiable appetite for the money of others. Record amounts of money come in and government spends even more.
Bill Nye is a big government person and by misquoting the Constitution a guy who alleges to teach people in fact misleads them and causes them to be ignorant.
Bastasch is right. There is a reason they do not call Bill Nye the Constitution Guy.
The shame is there are countless politicians and citizens who fit that bill as well.
Never surrender, never submit.

All kids know the bully. The bully is the one who makes threats, strikes (or tries to) an imposing figure and intimidates people usually without much physical contact. Anytime bullies fight they usually beat up the smallest wimpiest kid as a message to others.
Bullies usually stop bullying when one of the bullied stand up to them and beat the hell out of them, usually.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is the fat bully on the playground even though he looks like he has never been in a real fight in his life. In fact, he does not look like he can do much of anything but roll around making threats. He is also a tyrant who uses rocket propelled grenades and missiles to murder people he dislikes.
This fat kid got away with a lot over the years. He would do things that involved provoking Obama and when Obama refused to capitulate the fat kid did more.
This little fat bully from North Korea is once again raising a stink and running his mouth in order to bully other nations (particularly the US) into giving him what he wants (though it is anyone’s guess as to what that is). I assume that some of what he wants involves respect but there is no way to respect a little booger eating moron who is not fit to lead party goers in a rendition of “Happy Birthday”.
But Kim rants and raves and makes preposterous claims about how his missile program is great and he will use nuclear weapons to attack America. He has even threatened to attack a US aircraft carrier.
This little bully thinks he is still dealing with Barack Obama, a kid who can be pantsed on the playground with impunity. Kim should watch out because he is dealing with Donald Trump a man who is no stranger to the tactics of bullying and who is quite unpredictable.
If that little fat moron in North Korea attacks in any way (though honestly, his missiles blow up on launch or drop into the sea) then it is highly likely President Trump will retaliate in kind and then that fat kid will find out what the real world has evolved into while he was discovering gunpowder.
I would not be surprised if any attack included a missile landing wherever Kim happens to be. The best thing we can do would be to decapitate the power in North Korea and it would be best to do it by ending Kim and all his top advisors. I imagine the word of his demise would stop his Army from invading the South but if not we can carpet bomb the DMZ until they too are gone.
Bullies are best dealt with by attacking them and fighting them.
We should make sure we end Kim as part of any response to his bullying.
Never surrender, never submit.

Susan Rice has been outed as the Obama administration person who unmasked the names of American citizens working in the Trump campaign/administration. The names of those folks were eventually shared with a number of agencies in the government and made their way to the media. Making those names public is a felony.
I have heard the Media wing of the Democrat Party say that naming Rice is racist, sexist, and unfair. The claim is she did nothing illegal and that this is all to take attention away from the investigation into Russia.
As you know, the Democrats are looking to see if Trump and/or his people colluded with the Russians during the last presidential election. There has been no evidence (as reported by a number of agencies) showing that collusion took place or that any person associated with Trump committed a crime. But the investigation continues because Democrats are trying to tear down this administration and have adopted a scorched earth policy.
All well and good but if they want to claim Rice did nothing wrong then neither did Trump or his people. It is not illegal to talk to people from other countries. If the claim is that Democrats need to know what the motives were and what was discussed then we need that same standard for Rice.
What was her motivation? If it can be shown that the names of Americans NOT associated with Trump were unmasked during the time in question (and at the same rate or quantity) then she was probably just doing her job. But if the only names (or a disproportionate number of them) were from the Trump associates (or Trump himself) then there is no doubt her motive was political.
As an aside, Rice requested the unmasking and saw the transcripts of the conversations. Surely she can shed light on whether there was any wrongdoing. If she did not look at this stuff and immediately report it to the law agencies then there was no wrongdoing going on.
No, you see, Rice got the information in order to have it disseminated among government agencies so that it would be leaked to the media. The Obama people (and B. Hussein Obama WAS involved) knew that there was nothing illegal but they also knew if they sprinkled the Russian stuff throughout the government it would eventually get leaked and the narrative would be that Trump and/or his people did something wrong.
So what was her motive? We know Democrats who saw the info were worried and looked for a way to spin it. They came up with the narrative that Rice did nothing wrong, was only doing her job and that it is a distraction (throw in the racist/sexist allegations and you have the full Monty).
Susan Rice needs to be hauled in and questioned under oath. In fact, Obama should be subpoenaed to give sworn testimony. Rice should be specifically asked if Obama knew of this, gave her the order or had it disseminated. Obama should be asked what he knew and when he knew it.
The noose needs to keep getting tighter until we get answers about what happened and what the motivations were.
As for the Russian probe, here are your facts and the conclusion. Russia absolutely tried to influence our election AS IT HAS DONE FOR DECADES (kind of like Obama did in Israel’s elections) but there was no collusion with anyone from the Trump campaign/administration. A number of law and intelligence agencies have stated this a number of times. Democrats keep harping on it because they have nothing else.
Donald Trump needs to go after the people who did this and he needs to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. The American people deserve to see those who broke the law in jail where they belong.
We cannot keep law and order if those in positions of authority keep breaking the law and getting away with it.
Drain the swamp right into a federal prison.
Never surrender, never submit.

Perhaps the biggest mistake in Donald Trump’s tweet about being wiretapped is that he stated Barack Obama had wiretapped him. It would have been more accurate for him to state that his campaign was the target of surveillance by the government.
Liberals are quick to jump on the claim that Obama did it and then extrapolate that into it did not happen. One does not mean the other. Obama certainly did not wiretap Trump but Trump was surveilled in some fashion. And Obama knew of the surveillance possibly before but more likely after the contents of the surveillance were compiled.
That would be JUST before they were illegally released to the media. You know, right before Obama walked out the door. You have to know that dropping a turd like this in Trump’s path is exactly the kind of thing Obama would do. Let us not forget that Obama (and yes it was he) used the IRS as a weapon against conservative groups. The reason things are compartmented and hidden and obstructed is because the trail leads right to King Barry Obama.
But back on point.
For about eight months prior to the election there were media reports that Trump was being surveilled. The New York Times (and possibly several other outlets) mentioned it and Hillary mentioned it as well. There certainly had to be some kind of surveillance for them to know what was being targeted. In one case it was the servers belonging to Trump. It is true those servers were looked at and it is true someone told Hillary and it is true she mentioned it. All these things are true so it is true there was some level of surveillance going on. It is also important to note that the Russian angle came up DURING the campaign and Hillary continually used it to attack Trump. It appears as if she had inside information regarding surveillance and was using it to attack her opponent.
As far as the later episodes it is quite possible, and more than likely, that Trump associates got caught up in surveillance of Russians. There has been no indication any of those folks colluded or did anything wrong, just that they had contact. Some of them had business entities in Russia and contact with Russians was not abnormal. FBI Director Comey said that his agency is investigating (as it has been for months) any connections between Trump campaign folks and the Russians but that NOTHING (so far) has been found.
The denials about wiretapping appear to be the denial that Obama had anything to do with them (or more accurately ordered them). All denials are that there is nothing to support President Trump’s claim (which was that Obama did it). Has there been a flat out denial that there were any wiretaps AT ALL?
General Flynn got caught up in the surveillance of Russians. It appears he did nothing wrong but he then lied about it to the Vice President and that led to his resignation. How did anyone know Flynn spoke with the Russian ambassador? They knew because they were listening. The US was eavesdropping on the Russians and Flynn got caught up in the recording. Whoever exposed this and made his name public broke the law. Remember when the government told us that they were only concerned with wiretapping foreigners that made calls or who were called by Americans and that our privacy would be protected? Remember when they said they were not interested in our part of the conversation? That seems to have changed and it changed when Obama could use the information for political gain.
Obama most certainly did not wiretap Trump’s phones and it is highly unlikely that Obama ordered such a thing (he would not want his fingerprints on it) but Trump was surveilled as evidenced by the months of media reports and Hillary’s revelations. It is also true that Trump’s people were surveilled as evidenced by the leaked transcripts of conversations, particularly those relating to General Flynn.
It is highly likely that Obama got that information prior to departing the White House and dropped it off on the way out the door. Again, he probably did not leak it but he provided it to the person who did.
There is absolutely no way in the world that Obama did not know.
He might not have fingerprints on it but he surely knew.
So Trump did not express it correctly but he was on the right track.
Never surrender, never submit.
