Trump Goes After Pelosi, Romney: “I Don’t Like People Who Use Their Faith As Justification For Doing What They Know Is Wrong”

Published

on

President Trump today took a swipe at Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) for invoking religion during the impeachment proceedings while speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast.

“Weeks ago, and again yesterday, courageous Republican politicians and leaders had the wisdom, fortitude, and strength to do what everyone knows was right. I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong. Nor do I like people who say ‘I pray for you’ when they know that’s not so.”

The Hill:

Trump opened his remarks at the event by railing against the recently concluded impeachment process, taking an unmistakable jab at Romney, who voted to convict Trump one impeachment charge, and Pelosi, who was seated just a few feet away. When he entered the room, Trump held up newspapers emblazoned with headlines announcing his acquittal.

Romney voted on Wednesday convict Trump for abuse of power, and Pelosi, one of the president’s chief foils, launched the impeachment inquiry in September.

Romney, a devout Mormon, frequently spoke about his religion and prayer when explaining his reasoning for voting to convict Trump on one article of impeachment.

“Does anyone seriously believe that I would consent to these consequences other than from an inescapable conviction that my oath before God demanded it of me?” Romney asked before the vote, growing emotional as he spoke.

The Utah Republican was the only senator to cross party lines in Wednesday’s vote. Trump was acquitted on both abuse of power and obstruction of Congress in the GOP-controlled Senate.

Pelosi has regularly said she prays for the president and his family. In December, she pushed back at a question in December about whether she hates Trump, insisting she does not hate anybody because of her Catholic faith.  More

President Donald Trump shows his fortitude, growing stronger in the face of increasingly desperate assaults; he has not wilted, nor shrunk from his agenda, but continued on restoring and growing America’s future, ensuring the inclusion of those socially disadvantaged.

In stark difference, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and their latest ally Mitt Romney are being exposed as the fanatics they are; disinterested in anything, except their own pursuit of power.

President Trump Continues to Purge Never Trump Deep Staters

The latest never Trump, deep state, snake to be purged from the administration is top Pentagon policy official John Rood.

New York Times Admits There’s A Deep State, But It’s All Cool Because They're Courageous Heroes

The latest never Trump, deep state, snake to be purged from the administration is top Pentagon policy official John Rood.

Rood was fired as part of a culling of the deep state “snakes” who have been working against the president since he won election.

At last Trump is heeding the advice of real supporters and cleaning house.

“All of them are getting tossed. You’re either on the team or you’re out, everywhere,” a senior administration official told Breitbart News.

Rood has been well known as a Trump detractor in the Pentagon.

“Plenty of people from the transition and at the National Security Council knew Rood was not playing on the same team as the president when it came to policy or personnel,” a defense department official told Breitbart. “Complaints have made it to the highest levels at the White House for awhile now.”

Rood was a huge fan of loser John McCain and loudly opposed Trump. According to insiders, Rood also vocally supported anti-Trumper General Mattis.

Worse than his constant loud anti-Trump comments, Rood also worked to stymie Trump’s agenda in his department. Rood slow-rolled and delayed every Trump policy he was responsible for rolling out.

“John Rood was the most anti-Trump person in the Trump administration,” another insider said. “He openly worked to oppose the president’s policies. He was running his own policy irrespective of the president’s views.“

Rood also actively worked to prevent pro-Trump appointees from entering his department, and stonewalled people who he thought were pro-Trump. Instead of filling positions with pro-Trumpers, Rood handpicked his anti-Trump pals for those spots.

In the end, the President himself demanded that Rood turn in his resignation and Rood did so as requested.

Rood and those like him serve at the pleasure of the administration. So, Trump was 100 percent in is right to fire Rood.

Let’s hope the purge of anti-Trumpers continues.

Trump Accuses House Intel Chairman ‘Shifty Schiff’ Of Leaking Details Of Russia Briefing

Published

President Donald Trump accused House Intel chairman Adam Schiff of leaking details of the Russia briefing.

“Just another Shifty Schiff leak. Isn’t there a law about this stuff?”

Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump on Saturday accused Rep. Adam Schiff of leaking details of a briefing that intelligence community officials provided Congress earlier in February regarding Russian meddling in the 2020 election.

“Just another Shifty Schiff leak. Isn’t there a law about this stuff?” Trump wrote on Twitter in reference to a tweet from CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge.

Trump did not cite any specific evidence to back up his claim against the California Democrat.

The New York Times on Thursday cited “five people familiar” with a Feb. 13 briefing to the House Intelligence Committee that Russia was interfering in the election in order to help Trump. Some Republicans in the briefing reportedly disputed the intelligence, and said intelligence officials did not provide enough evidence that Russia was trying to help Trump.

Trump reportedly grew angry at Joseph Maguire, the acting director of national intelligence, for approving a briefing in which Schiff was involved. Trump was especially perturbed that Schiff was in the briefing, TheNYT reported. More

Every Democrat in Congress should be considered a national security threat.

Published

on

Political commentator David Frum mocked President Donald Trump’s appearance today on CNN’s Reliable Sources.

“Donald Trump was the oldest presidents ever, one of the fattest presidents ever, the least physically capable president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in a wheelchair. He can’t pick up a ball, never mind throw it.”

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

Impact of trying to increase cynicism and apathy, that’s part of its goal, to sort of muddy the waters. Tell us about your insights into that?

Well, it has an affect on people’s affirmative ideas. One of the things Donald Trump tried to spread in 2016 was the idea that Hillary Clinton was somehow physically incapable of managing the presidency. Donald Trump was the oldest president ever. One of the fattest presidents ever. The least physically capable president since Roosevelt was in a wheelchair. He can’t pick up a ball, never mind throw it.

President Trump’s Approval Rating Hits Post-Impeachment High

Published

on

President Trump’s approval rating hits record high as he mocks ‘fake media’ polls predicting he’ll lose the election.

This in spite of the constant mainstream media attacking President Trump. He is setting records with his rallies that the Democrats cannot even hope to match or come close to.

NYP:

President Trump’s polling numbers have reached their all-time high.

The RealClearPolitics average shows Trump’s approval hitting 46 percent.

The last time the public opinion of Trump’s performance as commander in chief was at that level was in February 2017.

The new mark is derived from a RealClearPolitics average of nine recent Trump job-approval polls.

A Rasmussen Reports poll, conducted from Sunday to Tuesday, earned the president the highest job-approval rating of all — 50 percent.

Trump took advantage of the favorable numbers, tweeting the results of the Rasmussen poll on Tuesday with the caption, “THANK YOU! #MAGA #KAG2020,” acronyms for his campaign slogans Make American Great Again and Keep America Great. More

President Trump has achieved more in the first 3 years of his presidency than anyone ever; doing so while being subjected to the most ferocious opposition attack against any president has had. He is the greatest president of all time.

Report: Trump Firing 70 Obama Deep Staters After Firing Vindman

After firing Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman last Friday, President Trump has now moved to eliminate 70 Obama deep staters.

Published

on

After firing Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman last Friday, President Trump has now moved to eliminate 70 Obama deep staters from the National Security Council.

At long last, Trump is moving to dump Obama holdovers at the NSC. It’s only sad it took him this long to start cleaning house. If he had done it sooner, the nation would have been spared the Democrat coup attempt over the Ukraine call.

The Trump administration confirmed that 70 deep staters are being reassigned or fired from the NSC, according to the Washington Examiner.

Trump slammed Vindman, the anti-Trump NSC low-ling who served as a key part of the failed Democrat attempt to remove the president on false charges.

After the Democrat coup attempt fell far short of removing Trump, the president finally moved to boot Vindman out of the White House.

Lt. Col. Vindman was seen being escorted out of the White House by security last Friday.

Vindman was a member of the National Security Council (NSC) but became a clear enemy to the people when he became part of the fake impeachment star chamber the Democrats whipped up against President Trump last year.

Vindman was not the only deep state head to roll on Friday.

The administration also recalled U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, another deep stater who tried to help the traitorous Democrats eliminate the president.

“I was advised today that the president intends to recall me effective immediately as United States ambassador to the European Union,” Sondland said, according to Fox News.

“With Sondland and Vindman out, eight of 12 officials who testified publicly during the impeachment hearings have left their roles, been fired, or reassigned,” Fox noted.

Let’s hope it will soon be 12 of 12.

President Donald Trump is Acquitted on Both Impeachment Articles

The U.S. Senate has acquitted president Donald John Trump on both impeachment charges today.

Published

on

The U.S. Senate has acquitted president Donald John Trump on both impeachment charges today.

As expected, the Republican Senators voted as a block with every Senator but one voting to acquit on both charges.

The only GOP defector was traitor Mitt Romney (Utah) who voted to remove Trump from office on only one of the charges (Article One: Abuse of Power).

Per USA Today:

The Republican-led Senate voted to acquit Trump on two articles of impeachment – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, was the only senator to cross party lines by voting to convict for abuse of power. Conviction was always unlikely in the GOP-led Senate, where Republicans hold a 53-47 majority because it required the support of at least two-thirds of the Senate or 67 senators.

The only surprising thing is that all the Democrat Senators stood firm with the far left, anti-Trumpers — even West Virginia Sen. Joe Mansion who seemed to be signaling that he would vote to acquit.

However, it is likely that once the Democrats all fully understood that there would be no substantive Republican defections, the more moderate Democrat senators felt safe enough to vote with the party line knowing that they would not be able to remove Trump, anyway.

Republicans, though celebrated the vote as a vote of “not guilty.”

Republican House Minority Leader took a jab at Nancy Pelosi on two levels with his celebratory tweet:

Both the ripping of the paper and the “acquitted for life” phrase were jabs at Pelosi who infamously just ripped up her printed copy of the president’s State of the Union speech last night and several weeks ago told reporters that Trump was “impeached for life.”

Going forward Trump will be able to say he was found innocent of the charges because he was not removed, but Democrats will counter saying that he was still impeached and will use that to try and make him illegitimate.

It won’t work. trump looks to be cruising to re-election in November despite the media’s and the Democrat’s best efforts.

Dems Don’t Applaud for God, America’s Greatness, Death of Terrorists a State of the Union Speech

President Donald Trump delivered his State of the Union Speech last night relaying the good news that America is back.

Published

on

President Donald Trump delivered his State of the Union Speech last night relaying the good news that America is back. But Democrats were so filled with hate they could not stand and applaud when Trump talked about the low unemployment rates, even for minorities. They also could not applaud for mentions of God, Trump’s segment about America’s great history, or the death of Muslim terrorists, or even the segment where Trump said that America’s greatness will rise even more in the future.

One of the highlights of the speech was Trump’s outline of how he has brought our economy back from the depths of despair under Obama.

“The years of economic decay are over. The days of our country being used, taken advantage of, and even scorned by other nations are long behind us. Gone too are the broken promises, jobless recoveries, tired platitudes, and constant excuses for the depletion of American wealth, power, and prestige,” the president said at the outset.

Trump went on to note that his promise to revive the American economy is a promise kept. And the statistics he relayed were important touchstones to remember when we vote for president in November.

These are important points:

Since my election, we have created 7 million new jobs—5 million more than Government experts projected during the previous administration.

The unemployment rate is the lowest in over half a century.

Incredibly, the average unemployment rate under my administration is lower than any administration in the history of our country. If we had not reversed the failed economic policies of the previous administration, the world would not now be witness to America’s great economic success.

The unemployment rates for African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans have reached the lowest levels in history. African American youth unemployment has reached an all-time low.

African American poverty has declined to the lowest rate ever recorded.

The unemployment rate for women reached the lowest level in almost 70 years—and last year, women filled 72% of all new jobs added.

The veterans’ unemployment rate dropped to a record low.

The unemployment rate for disabled Americans has reached an all-time low.

Workers without a high school diploma have achieved the lowest unemployment rate recorded in United States history.

A record number of young Americans are now employed.

Under the last administration, more than 10 million people were added to the food stamp rolls. Under my administration, 7 million Americans have come off of food stamps, and 10 million people have been lifted off of welfare.

In eight years under the last administration, over 300,000 working-age people dropped out of the workforce. In just three years of my administration, 3.5 million working-age people have joined the workforce.

Since my election, the net worth of the bottom half of wage-earners has increased by 47%—three times faster than the increase for the top 1%. After decades of flat and falling incomes, wages are rising fast—and, wonderfully, they are rising fastest for low-income workers, who have seen a 16% pay increase since my election. This is a blue-collar boom.

Naturally, the Democrats could not stand and applaud all this great news. They sat stone-faced and ignored the fact that America is stronger than it has been in decades.

Indeed, the Democrats sat on their hands every time Trump noted that America, or Americans are great.

Democrats hate America. They always have.
