Trump Threatens To Withhold Michigan Funding Over ‘Illegal’ Absentee Ballot Plan



President Trump threatens to withhold Michigan’s funding over ‘illegal’ absentee ballot plan; Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson responds.

“Breaking: Michigan sends absentee ballots to 7.7 million people ahead of Primaries and the General Election,” President Trump tweeted. “This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!” He followed up the post by tagging Office of Management and Budget Director Russ Vought, Trump’s Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and the U.S.

In a social media post Wednesday, President Trump threatened to withhold federal funding to Michigan for what he described as a “rogue Secretary of State” “illegally” sending absentee ballots to 7.7 people — a claim prompted by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s announcement of a plan to send absentee ballot applications to qualified Michigan voters.

While Trump accused Benson of “send[ing] absentee ballots” to millions of residents, the Democratic Secretary of State’s plan is to first send the 7.7 million qualified voters applications for the ballots.

Benson quickly responded to Trump’s tweet by highlighting the distinction between sending out ballots and ballot applications.

“Hi! I also have a name, it’s Jocelyn Benson,” she tweeted in response. “And we sent applications, not ballots. Just like my GOP colleagues in Iowa, Georgia, Nebraska and West Virginia.” More

If we can all wait in line at Home Depot, Costco, Sam’s Club, Walmart, etc.. we can all wait in a line to vote. Just another socialist control tactic. Also, you should be required to request an absentee ballot.

Trump’s Foreign Policy: Beyond Imagination



Two days ago we started to receive some disturbing comments not only from enemies of the United States, but from allies. Not only from journalists, but from heads of state and the European Union leadership.

That the Trump Administration did not even try to enforce its own sanctions against Iran and Venezuela last weekend has had a very significant effect on world politics and the United States’ place in it.

Friendly leaders are talking about America’s loss of global leadership credibility, and how important that is to all of the free world.

“Unfriendlies” like Iran, Venezuela, Turkey, China, North Korea, Afgahnistan, Iraq, Russia and Syria are showing signs they feel “empowered” to ignore current and future U.S. warnings and expand their own areas of political and military influence without fear of American response. The Taliban is planning to retake Afghanistan and reintroducing Sharia Law while Iran accelerates plans to expel the U.S. from the Middle East and implement it’s stated policy of erasing Israel from the face of the Earth.

As the U.S. withdraws from international accords and treaties, the vaccuum will no doubt be filled by others – in particular China and Russia.  Removed from the geopolitical stage, the U.S. loses influence within international organizations and on world policy.

Meanwnile, by controlling a major portion of the World´s rare earth metal deposits, China is positioning itself as the controller of much of the raw materials needed for advanced electronics, including lasers and weapons systems. Expanding it’s military bases and forces in the South China Sea, allows Beijing to control major Asian maritime trade routes and spread its military presence. And it continues to plan for the full reintegration of both Hong Kong and Taiwan into the mainland nation.

For over a century, the U.S. has been the stabilzing factor guaranteeing freedom and democracies in the World.  For the last 70 years. America has been a significant deterrent for Soviet/Russian expansion, primarily through it’s leadership in NATO.  But, since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Moscow has engaged in a massive and successful resurgence.  What was not long ago a disseminated military and near collapsed economy is, again, a dangerous competitor and adversary.   

Now, far too many political observers no longer believe that President Trump will be reelected in the Fall.

This not only because of the Administrations handling of the CoVid-19 pandemic, the failure to enforce U.S. sanctions, military withdrawal from Afghanistan and the Middle East and decoupling from international treaties and agencies. They also cite political and personal obsessions with conspiracy theories instead of cooperation and management as unproductive.

The United States is a seriously split and painfully divided nation.  The fractures are not just celebrated by our nemeses, but they’re partially created by Russian troll factories, Chinese money and cowardly and forgetful “allies.”

Yet, the Trump Administration expends far excessive energy and resources fighting the media and conspiracies instead of managing America’s geopolitical interests. 

Even should the President be reelected and his America First policies continue to become de facto isolationism, the United States may cease to be the superpower that has been a trademark for more than half of its existence. 

One of America’s greatest allies and beneficiaries, an acclaimed freedom fighter and hero in his own country, Charles DeGaulle, said;

You have to be sure that the Americans will commit all the stupidities they can think of, plus some that are beyond imagination.”

Twitter Now “Fact Checking” Trump’s Tweets

Big tech meddling!



President Trump accused Twitter of meddling in the 2020 presidential election after the social media platform announced it would label the president’s tweets with a fact check.

“They are saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by Fake News CNN and the Amazon Washington Post,” the president wrote ironically on Twitter. “Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!”

Twitter for the first time prompted readers to check the facts in tweets sent by President Trump, warning readers his claims about mail-in ballots were false and had been debunked by fact-checkers.

Trump Says Houses Of Worship Are Essential, Calls For Their Reopening



President Trump says houses of worship are essential, calls for their reopening: “We need more prayer, not less.”

President Donald Trump told reporters in a press conference this afternoon that the Center for Disease Control, at his direction, was releasing guidance for reopening houses of worship as essential operations.

“At my direction, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is issuing guidance for communities of faith,” said President Trump. “I’m identifying houses of worship ⁠— churches, synagogues, and mosques ⁠— as essential places that provide essential services.”

During the brief remarks, Trump said he would “override” governors refusing to allow churches and other houses of worship to resume operations, although the president did not elaborate further.

“Some governor’s have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential, but have left out churches and other houses of worship ⁠— that’s not right,” said President Trump. “So I’m correcting this injustice and calling houses of worship essential.”

“These are places that hold our society together and keep our people united. The people are demanding to go to church and synagogue, go to their mosque” said President Trump.

“The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important, essential places of faith to open right now, or this weekend,” said President Trump. “If they don’t do it, I will override the governors. If they don’t do it, I will override the governors.”

If you want to stay at home and cringe in fear for the next few months, then help yourself. It’s time people had their freedom to gather together restored.

Trump Unloads On China For Their Lies And ‘The Pain And Carnage’ They Have ‘Spread Throughout The World’



President Donald Trump unloaded on China for their lies and ‘the pain and carnage’ they have ‘spread throughout the world.’

“Spokesman speaks stupidly on behalf of China, trying desperately to deflect the pain and carnage that their country spread throughout the world. Its disinformation and propaganda attack on the United States and Europe is a disgrace,” Trump tweeted. “It all comes from the top. They could have easily stopped the plague, but they didn’t!”

“China is on a massive disinformation campaign because they are desperate to have Sleepy Joe Biden win the presidential race so they can continue to rip-off the United States, as they have done for decades, until I came along!”


President Donald Trump blasted Chinese dictator Xi Jinping late on Wednesday over the Chinese Communist Party’s continued disinformation propaganda campaign that they are spreading around the world in an attempt to deflect blame from the that originated in their country and spread around the world due to China’s lies, attempted cover-up, and subsequent decision to allow international flights out of the country while restricting travel within their own borders. More

I’m so glad that President Trump is calling a spade a spade regarding China. They have put the entire world in peril. We need to pull out all our manufacturing from them now. The global community has been ignoring China’s human rights violations for decades. I just regret It finally took a pandemic for the world to acknowledge and react.

Trump DECIMATES Dr. Tedros, WHO, & China In Brutal Letter

Gonna leave a mark, eh Tedros?



President Donald Trump is giving WHO 30 days to commit to real changes in how it operates or he will make his hold on U.S. funding permanent. The threat came in a message that sharply criticizes the World Health Organization’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and its connection to China.

“The World Health Organization has repeatedly made claims about the coronavirus that were either grossly inaccurate or misleading,” He wrote in the four-page letter to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.


People always joke about government ‘sending a strongly worded letter’ because that’s usually their go-to when dealing with anything out of line. ‘Don’t make us write a strongly-worded letter,’ and so on.

But this letter from Trump to Dr. Tedros of the World Health Organization is … well, you decide if it’s strongly-worded or not. More

Donald Trump SLAMS Obama as ‘Grossly Incompetent’ and Corrupt’ for Unmasking Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn

President Trump went hard against former President Obama on Sunday, calling Obama and Biden “grossly incompetent” and “corrup.t”



President Donald Trump went hard against former President Barack Obama on Sunday, calling Obama and Biden “grossly incompetent” and “corrupt” for unmasking Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn with their corrupt FBI as Trump was preparing to staff his nascent administration in 2017.

On Sunday, Trump demanded that Obama and Biden face jail time for their illegal actions against Flynn.

“It was the greatest political crime in the history of our country,” the president said of the sneak attack on Flynn.

“f I were a Democrat instead of a Republican, I think everybody would have been in jail a long time ago, and I’m talking with 50-year sentences,” Trump told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo on Sunday. “It is a disgrace what’s happened this is the greatest political scam, hoax in the history of our country. And people should be going to jail for this stuff and hopefully, a lot of people are going to have to pay.”

“This was all Obama. This was all Biden. These people were corrupt – the whole thing was corrupt, and we caught them,” Trump added.

The president said that the DOJ’s decision to drop the case against Flynn was the right move.

“The Obama Administration is turning out to be one of the most corrupt and incompetent in U.S. history,” Trump tweeted. “Remember, he and Sleepy Joe are the reasons I am in the White House!!!”

When he was alerted to Obama’s recent criticism, Trump said “Look, he was an incompetent president That’s all I can say. Grossly incompetent.”

The president also took a stick to Joe Biden.

“I watched Biden yesterday – could barely speak,” said. “And he said he didn’t know anything about it and now, it just gets released right after he said that – it gets released he was one of the unmaskers meaning he knew everything about it.”

President Trump Goes After Tech Giants Google, Facebook For ‘Radical Left’ Bias



President Donald Trump accused Facebook, Twitter, and Alphabet Inc’s Google of being controlled by the “Radical Left” and said that his administration is working to remedy the “illegal situation.”

“The Radical Left is in total command & control of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Google. The Administration is working to remedy this illegal situation. Stay tuned, and send names & events,” President Trump tweeted.

The president has painted targets on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Google which means the DOJ has them laser-focused in their sights.


President Donald Trump appeared to express support for breaking up dominant tech companies in a tweet Saturday.

Trump’s tweet comes just hours after reports that the Justice Department was drafting an antitrust lawsuit against Google. Politicians have long feared that Google and its peers like Facebook and Amazon have become too dominant in their industry.

State attorneys general are reportedly working alongside the DOJ to draft similar lawsuits alleging that Google has violated antitrust laws. Texas AG Ken Paxton is leading the coalition of 51 AGs, according to Bloomberg.

Google said in a statement to Bloomberg that it is participating in “the ongoing investigations led by the Department of Justice and Attorney General Paxton” and will continue “providing services that help consumers, support thousands of businesses, and enable increased choice and competition.” More
