Ben Rhodes
"What is the latest secret intel you have on the Trump Administration Ben?"

Deputy assistant to President Trump is ready to go head to head with former White House staff member Ben Rhodes, to prove that President Trump’s administration is far stronger that Obama’s administration ever was.

In his interview with Sean Hannity on Friday, Gorka had expressed in the past that as “someone has to be the president’s pitbull,” I would gladly do the job. He highlighted that the Trump administration is fully equipped to deal with everything that comes their way. “We’ve got beautiful, intelligent women like Kellyanne [Conway],” Gorka stated. “We’ve got brave professionals like Sean Spicer. Somebody has to be the president’s pit bull and I’m ready.”

However, this wasn’t the only highlight to of the week that featured Gorka.

Gorka has issued a challenge to Obama’s aide Ben Rhodes, from his Twitter account in response to Jake Tapper who claimed that, Ben Rhodes “would put his ‘graduate degree’ against [Sebastian Gorka’s] PhD [sic] any day of the week.” “Okay Jake, host the debate then,” stated Gorka.

“I’d be delighted,” he tweeted. “What say you Mr. [Rhodes,] Mr. [Tapper]?”

The tweet contained a video of a very combative exchange between Jake Tapper and Gorka. Towards the end, the Trump aide mocks a former Trump aide’s graduate degree, and Tapper jabs back at him.

In a heated argument with Jake Tapper, Gorka criticized that “policies that were borne in the beltway by people who’ve never worn a uniform, people that were in the White House like Ben Rhodes.”

“They helped create the firestorm that is the Middle East that is ISIS today,” he further added. “So we are open to new ideas because the last sixteen years have failed American national interests, and the American taxpayer,” he stated.

Tapper responded with a challenge to Gorka, “There were plenty of people who wore the uniform who advised President Obama and President Bush.”

“Not people as influential as Ben Rhodes who had a Master’s degree in fictional writing,” Gorka argued. “That is disastrous.”

And then came the challenge where Tapper argued that people like Rhodes could “put his graduate degree against” Gorka’s PHD “any day of the week.

“Well, I’m sure he would put his graduate degree against yours any day of the week,” Tapper stated. “Sebastian Gorka, I appreciate your time,” he added.

Gorka, took on the challenge as he expressed, “Anytime, I’d be glad to debate him on your show.’

However, the discussion didn’t end with the show, but continued on Twitter as Gorka tweeted “I’d be delighted. What say you Mr. @brhodes?,” as he went on share a clip from the show.

During his interview with Tapper Gorka backed Trump and his administration by stating that America needs to give “collaboration, cooperation, a chance.”

He added, “The fact is we may not share the same philosophy. We may not share the same type of statesman view of the world. But the fact is there are some issues of common concern.”

Judicial Amnesty
Obama's agents in the Judiciary are infecting our government - Get Them Out!

U.S. District Judge Elizabeth K. Dillon, formally appointed by the Obama administration is set on freeing ill-legal immigrants known to commit violent acts.

While, a news outlet praised Dillon for her action, by stating: “For immigration advocates, U.S. District Judge Elizabeth K. Dillon’s June 1 order was a major legal victory over the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), the federal agency charged with caring for children apprehended at the border without their parents. The decision could lead to the release of dozens, perhaps hundreds, of long-detained unaccompanied minors, they said. The teen’s release was remarkable for another reason: Before coming to the United States, he had sold drugs and witnessed murders as a member of MS-13. The violent street gang is on the rise in the United States, fueled, in part, by the surge in unaccompanied minors. MS-13 has been linked to dozens of recent killings, from the Washington area to Long Island, Boston and Houston. President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have voiced alarm about MS-13 and the way it has taken advantage of the U.S. immigration system.”

On the other hand, the public is seen viewing Dillon’s action as a threat to their own safety, as one user on Reddit stated, “The photos of victims of illegals need to be dropped off on this judge’s doorstep daily.”

The federal judge has ordered the release of a Honduran teen that had crossed the Rio Grande a few years ago and had turned himself in to U.S. Border Patrol. Taking his rather extenuous history when it comes to his involvement in gangs and dealing drugs, the feds had help him without any hearing and had thus, “violated his rights to due process and family unity.”

It is to be noted, “Some 150,000 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC)—mostly from Central America—entered the U.S. through the Mexican border under the Obama administration and this disturbing case out of Virginia is one of many illustrating the threat they represent to the American public. Judicial Watch has covered and investigated the UAC influx for years and has obtained public records from the various government agencies responsible for relocating the illegal alien minors throughout the country.”

While, the MS-13 actively targets illegal immigrant minors that reside at shelter housings to carry out their illegal motives. Texas Department of Safety notes that, “Reports of increased MS-13 gang activity have already surfaced in the Houston area.” And that, “MS-13 gang members are known for highly violent crimes, including brutal murders and dismemberments. Several recent crimes in Texas illustrate the criminal threat associated with MS-13.” Judges such as Dillion are putting everyone’s safety at risk, by setting criminals free.

Scheming Schumer
Two men of principle and conviction. Er, wait...

Last Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced that he intends to support a Senate motion, moved to block President Trump’s arms deal with Saudi Arabia. The deal between the two countries was signed last month, during Trump’s visit to the Middle Eastern Islamic Republic.

However, it is to be noted, Schumer, who is one of Trump’s most vocal opponents in the government, had a significantly different stance to remarkably similar motion last year, when a group of senators tried to block former President Barack Obama’s arms deal with the Saudis.

In his statement on Monday, Schumer said that he is concerned about the impact on the already worsening humanitarian crisis in the region, the sale of $500 million worth of precision guided missiles will have.

“I will support Sen.  [Chris] Murphy’s resolution of disapproval. The human rights and humanitarian concerns have been well documented and are important,” Schumer told the Huffington Post.

“Of equal concern to me is that the Saudi government continues to aid and abet terrorism via its relationship with Wahhabism and the funding of schools that spread extremist propaganda throughout the world,” he explained.

The effort to move the motion to block Trump’s arms deal is a bipartisan one, led by Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.)

This group of senators is of the belief that an arms deal with Saudi Arabia could aggravate the already worsening problems of the region, including the civil war in Yemen, where the government of Saudi Arabia is vehemently supporting the ousted government. The senators believe that the current humanitarian crisis could seriously worsen with American weapons.

This isn’t, however, the first time a group of senators have tried to stop the sale of American arms and ammunitions to Saudi.

Last year, a $1.15 billion deal to sell arms to the Saudis, approved by the Obama administration, was successfully blocked by the Senate. However, at that time, it was noted that Schumer had voted against the rejection of Obama’s deal.

Even though the humanitarian issues remain, no one can tell why Schumer has changed his decision suddenly to block the arms deal that he was supporting last year under Obama.

The effort to block the deal, even with Schumer’s deal, is expected to fail. However, Politico expects the effort to receive support from a handful of Republicans and a large majority of Democrats.

Obama

Obama wanted to leave a foreign policy legacy that he could be proud of, but instead he did something America never does.

President Obama was caught red handed as the State Department came out and admitted on Thursday that the $400 million in unmarked foreign cash was delivered to Iran based on the release of the four American hostages.

Two weeks ago, president Obama came out and tried to laugh it off.

Despite Obama’s claims that it wasn’t a ransom and he announced these payments in in January, Trump called it a lie.

Well, it looks like Trump was right. Watch as the State Department admits they lied.

Just moments later, John Kirby was asked, “In basic English, you’re saying you wouldn’t give them $400 million in cash until the prisoners were released, correct?”

The spokesmen for the State Department replied, “That’s correct”.

On a side note, Iran has taken at least two more Americans captive since we paid the ransom.

Are you angry we paid a ransom or happy we got four Americans back? Let us know in the comments below.

The Secretary of Homeland Security is the second high-ranking Obama administration official with a relative investigated for Communism by the U.S. government, Judicial Watch has confirmed. This is relevant because, although Islamic terrorists keep attacking America, the cabinet official responsible for the nation’s safety has vowed to protect Muslims from the type of persecution he says his grandpa suffered under McCarthyism in the 1940s.

During a recent event covered by Judicial Watch, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson compared the discrimination Muslims face in today’s climate of “fear, suspicions and prejudice” to McCarthyism, the movement to weed out Communists during the Cold War. “In 1949, during the McCarthy era, my own grandfather was called upon to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee, to deny he was a member of the Communist Party and defend the patriotism of African Americans,” Johnson said. “Today his grandson is responsible for the homeland security of this entire nation.”

The affair took place at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), one of the largest mosques in the U.S., located in the D.C. Metro Area. ADAMS leadership got Johnson to hold a “National Security and Civil Rights” press conference in the aftermath of the San Bernardino terrorist attacks.

ADAMS officials tried to keep Judicial Watch from attending the event, but the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reluctantly intervened after multiple appeals by JW. Initially, DHS’s Acting Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs, Todd Breasseale, told JW that his agency “does not have the authority to force any private entity to accommodate those whom they do not wish to accommodate,” even though the conference was widely promoted and featured a cabinet secretary. When JW challenged this and restated the journalism credentials of its reporting staff, Breasseale echoed that “DHS hasn’t the authority to force any private entity to accommodate those whom they do not wish to accommodate.” Ultimately, after several appeals, JW was rightfully granted access.

Johnson’s Communist connection had not previously been revealed and it certainly wasn’t mentioned during Senate confirmation hearings before he took over the massive agency created after 9/11 to keep the nation safe.

This was a bombshell, according to an editorial published in a Los Angeles-based newspaper dedicated to covering business, finance and economics. “Johnson’s family history is most troubling,” the editorial reads. “As Muslim terrorism hits closer and closer to home, our Homeland Security chief views the war on Islamic terrorism as a another Red scare, where Muslim terrorist suspects are Red-baited like his grandfather. No wonder this administration isn’t interested in monitoring radical Muslims for terrorist connections.”

Earlier this year JW obtained Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) files that reveal the dad, maternal grandpa and father-in-law of President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.

Jarrett’s dad, pathologist and geneticist Dr. James Bowman, had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals, his lengthy FBI file shows. In 1950 Bowman was in communication with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who fled to Prague after getting charged with espionage.

Bowman was also a member of a Communist-sympathizing group called the Association of Internes and Medical Students. After his discharge from the Army Medical Corps in 1955, Bowman moved to Iran to work, the FBI records show.

Jarrett’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was also another big-time Chicago Communist, according to separate FBI files obtained by JW as part of a probe into the Jarrett family’s Communist ties. For a period of time Vernon Jarrett appeared on the FBI’s Security Index and was considered a potential Communist saboteur who was to be arrested in the event of a conflict with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). His FBI file reveals that he was assigned to write propaganda for a Communist Party front group in Chicago that would “disseminate the Communist Party line among…the middle class.”

new terror alert

Following President Obama’s Oval Office address to the nation on what he plans to do to protect the American people from terrorist attack following the San Bernardino massacre, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said that he would soon announce changes to the national alert system to warn the public about terrorism risks.

Without explaining what the current “national alert system” is, how it is used to alert anyone to a terrorist attack or how it has allowed law enforcement to stop attacks before they happen, Secretary Johnson said that he is overhauling the current alert system the July shooting of five U.S. service members in Chattanooga, Tennessee – JULY!

In the wake of the biggest terrorist attack on the homeland since September 11, 2001, Johnson said:

“We need to get … to a new system with an intermediate level,” Johnson said at a security forum on Monday, adding he planned to outline specific changes in the coming days.

According to Johnson, the National Terrorism Advisory System is triggered by specific, credible and actionable intelligence that an attack is imminent – a system that replaced the color-coded alert system in 2001.

Tweaking the alert system was Secretary Johnson’s only response to fighting terror and that the changes under consideration – which were not shared with the public – would provide the American people with critical information in time to move out of harm’s way.

“We need a system that adequately informs the public about what we are seeing” Johnson said and that the current NTAS system had such a high bar for alerts that the government never used it – as if the only purpose of an alert system was to use it and to lower the bar on threats that would trigger the system.

Johnson added the platitude that security officials need to do a better job of informing the public about global terrorist threats (for the sake of informing them of something) and providing guidance (for the sake of giving guidance.)

A DHS official later clarified Secretary Johnson’s comments saying that changes to the existing NTAS system will not be a new system – or, to put it another way, changing the NTAS system for the sake of changing it.

Borrowing a play from the Obama administration’s extensive race-card repertoire, illegal immigrants claim in a federal lawsuit that a ballot measure denying them driver’s licenses is discriminatory because it’s based on membership in a “disfavored minority group.”

About a year ago Oregonians overwhelmingly voted against Measure 88, which would have provided special driver cards to illegal aliens. Voters throughout the state, which is largely represented by Democrats in Congress, fiercely rejected the initiative 983,576 to 506,751, according to election results from the Oregon Secretary of State.

All of Oregon’s 36 counties voted against Measure 88 by significant margins, the figures show. Measure 88 was put on the ballot after Oregon legislators passed a controversial law in 2013 directing the Department of Transportation to give illegal immigrants who have resided in the state for more than a year a special driver card.

Disregarding the clear intent of Oregon’s U.S. citizens, a group of five Mexicans, identified only by their initials in court documents, are suing the state for—get this—violating their civil rights by denying them driving privileges.

Governor Kate Brown is also named as a defendant in the complaint and so is the director of Oregon’s Department of Transportation and the director of the agency’s driver and motor vehicle division. Two immigrant right groups called Familias En Acción and Los Niños Cuentan (Families in Action and Children Count) have joined the Mexican illegal aliens as plaintiffs in the case.

They accuse Oregon officials of violating the U.S. Constitution by “arbitrarily” denying them and other illegal immigrants driving privileges simply because they belong to a disliked minority group. Measure 88 was “motivated in substantial part by animus toward persons from Mexico and Central America,” the lawsuit alleges, further stating that the ballot initiative “was an improper attempt by the State of Oregon to regulate immigration.”

The two Latino rights nonprofits claim that, if driver cards were available to the illegal aliens they serve, they’d be able to help more individuals and families. The complaint fails to offer how the groups’ rights are violated by not giving illegal immigrants licenses.

About 84,000 illegal immigrants have already been stripped of driving privileges, according to the lawsuit which asserts that they were singled out as an “unpopular minority for disparate treatment in violation” of the U.S. Constitution. Tens of thousands more who live on Oregon can’t prove legal status in the U.S., the complaint reveals, and they will suffer societal, economic and health-related disadvantages if they’re not allowed to drive. The ban will prevent illegal aliens from “exercising their liberty interest in operating a motor vehicle for a lawful purpose,” the complaint states.

This is hardly the first time we’ve seen illegal immigrants use the American court system in an effort to strong arm public agencies to give them rights. A few years ago Judicial Watch reported on a Nebraska case involving an illegal alien who sued the state for “unconstitutionally” denying her a driver’s license.

Represented by the notoriously leftist Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), the 24-year-old woman claimed that she had the right, under the U.S. Constitution, to drive because she was protected by one of President Obama’s amnesty programs.

In other cases over the last few years, illegal immigrants have sued various government agencies—at the federal, state, county and city level—for violations of “constitutional rights” and discrimination. In 2013 illegal aliens even demanded that American taxpayers finance their organ transplants!

Obama dumps 2,224 new pages of regulations on the nation to celebrate Thanksgiving

As millions of Americans prepare to spend time with family members and friends this Thanksgiving, the Obama administration is using the holiday distraction to dump 2,224 new pages of federal regulations on the nation in the days ahead – another installment of “rule by regulation” as President Obama enters the last year in office.

This latest batch of regulations represent the Fall, 2015 phase of what President Obama calls his “Unified Agenda” – a comprehensive regulatory battle plan that the president has been rolling out throughout his presidency to expand federal control over every aspect of American life using a major national holiday to blunt news coverage and criticism.

Just before Thanksgiving last year, Obama released his Fall, 2014 list of 3,400 new regulations followed by his Spring, 2015 installment of more than 2,300 new regulations that was released right before the Memorial Day weekend.

The types of regulations are disturbing as well covering everything from new curbs on “greenhouse” gasses that cause “global warming” to bans on agricultural pesticides because dubious “science” suggests they might be harmful to humans.

And although Obama’s practice of issuing regulations around major national holidays is the norm, he issues regulations throughout the year that can’t wait for the quarterly dump.

Since January, the Obama Administration issued several major environmental regulations to limit on carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants… expanded federal control over U.S. waterways… imposed new rules on hydraulic fracturing… and stricter rules on smog.

And the job killing costs of these regulations to achieve unverifiable outcomes based on fad science relating to “global warming” and “clean air” is no object.

According to a new report by the conservative American Action Forum (AAF), clean air regulations released by the Obama Administration in recent weeks will impose $1.8 billion in new regulatory costs on the country – bringing the total cost of regulations in 2015 to $183 billion – a hidden tax increase on every man woman and child in America.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s new smog limits turned out to be some of the costliest ever proposed by a federal agency.

The EPA says tighter smog, or ground-level ozone, limits would only cost $1.4 billion and yield much more in health benefits from less pollution. But an analysis by AAF found that the EPA’s smog rule could end up costing 40 times more than the agency predicted based on the experience of counties not in compliance with older agency smog rules.

“Observed non-attainment counties experienced losses of $56.5 billion in total wage earnings, $690 in pay per worker, and 242,000 jobs between 2008 and 2013,” according to AAF policy experts.

These are embarrassing times for the nation’s criminal justice system; as the Obama administration executes the nation’s largest mass release of federal prisoners, it’s sending a Long Island fisherman to jail for reeling in too many.

It’s part of the administration’s criminal justice reform movement to reduce jail time as a way of ending racial discrimination and enforce the overreaching federal regulations of a bloated government. Back in 2010 President Obama signed a measure that for the first time in decades relaxed drug-crime sentences he claimed discriminated against poor and minority offenders.

This severely weakened a decades-old law enacted during the infamous crack cocaine epidemic that ravaged urban communities nationwide in the 1980s.

As part of the movement the U.S. Sentencing Commission lowered maximum sentences for drug offenders and made it retroactive. Last week the administration started releasing the first wave of 6,000 drug convicts who will get out of jail early.

In all, about 50,000 prisoners are eligible for early release and federal authorities claim they’re all “non-violent” offenders whose sentences were too long in the first place. Federal prosecutors have warned that drug trafficking is inherently violent and therefore the phrase “non-violent drug offenders” is a misnomer.

The nation’s prosecutors also caution that reducing prison sentences for drug offenders will weaken their ability to bring dangerous drug traffickers to justice.

The new more lenient penalty stops the justice system from unfairly targeting minorities and the poor, according to Obama’s first Attorney General, Eric Holder, a driving force behind the change. While drug offenders get off easy in the name of racial justice, the administration has increased punishment for violating federal regulations involving less serious acts such as reeling in too many fish.

The feds actually went after a commercial fisherman named Anthony Jospeh for “Fisheries Fraud” because he caught too many fluke. Then, he lied about it to the government—“systematically underreporting fluke”—and that got him in a boatload of trouble.

Last week the New York fisherman got sentenced to seven months in prison, a $603,000 fine and three years of supervised release following incarceration, according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) announcement. This overfishing business is serious stuff, according to the language in the federal document.

“In order to cover up the illegal fluke harvesting, Joseph falsified” the reports he sent to the government agency that regulates fishing and “he also utilized the exempted fisheries permit quota that was acquired through” a federal program as a “mask for his fluke overages.”

For some reason this doesn’t sound nearly as serious as a drug-related offense. Is it possible that the country is safer because a fish fraudster is in jail…while drug convicts roam freely?

amnesty

In yet another depiction of the nation’s flawed immigration policies, the Obama administration is extending a humanitarian measure designed to temporarily shield illegal immigrants from deportation during emergencies for the fifth time in five years. It’s officially known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS) but should be renamed permanent—or at least long-term—protected status.

It involves tens of thousands of Haitians, who were originally granted TPS after an earthquake devastated the poverty-stricken Caribbean island in 2010. Then Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the benefit would last only 18 months and be limited to Haitian nationals who were in the United States as of January 12, 2010. The goal, according to Napolitano was to provide a “temporary refuge for Haitian nationals who are currently in the United States and whose personal safety would be endangered by returning to Haiti is part of this Administration’s continuing efforts to support Haiti’s recovery.”

More than five years later the Obama administration continues to allow the same group of foreigners, who would otherwise be deported, remain in the U.S. under the never-ending “temporary” measure. DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson made it official this week, extending TPS for Haitians an additional 18 months, through July 22, 2017. This will grant Haitians authorization to work in the U.S. and receive other taxpayer-funded benefits. “Haiti was initially designated for TPS on Jan. 21, 2010, after a major earthquake devastated the country,” the government announcement reads. “Following consultations with other federal agencies, the Department of Homeland Security has determined that current conditions in Haiti support extending the designation period for current TPS beneficiaries.”

Last year Johnson extended an existing TPS for Haitian nationals with no explanation or earthquake sob story mentioned in the official announcement. Previous to that, Napolitano renewed the measure every year after originally implementing it following the earthquake. This is referred to as a “re-designation” in the various DHS announcements. It allows at least 60,000 Haitians who should be deported to live and work in the U.S. Their children, of course, get a free education and other public benefits compliments of American taxpayers.

Like droves of foreign nationals from a number of struggling countries, Haitians have entered the U.S. illegally for years because their island nation has long been the poorest in the western hemisphere. However the U.S. has for years generously donated huge sums to Haiti and that includes $4 billion in post-earthquake assistance, according to State Department figures. The money keeps flowing and has helped provide shelter, healthcare, food, energy, education, security, jobs and a number of other essential needs.

Additionally, U.S. and international charities raised enormous sums of money for Haiti earthquake relief efforts. Dozens of groups and their affiliates raised $2.1 billion, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy, and more than half ($1.43 billion) came from Americans. A group of famous singers also joined forces to record an album (Hope for Haiti Now) that quickly raised tens of millions of dollars for earthquake relief in Haiti.

Haitian illegal immigrants aren’t the only ones who have enjoyed the long-term benefits of the special measure intended to grant only temporary reprieve. Last year the Obama administration extended TPS for tens of thousands of Hondurans and Nicaraguans. The order was originally issued more than a decade and a half ago after a hurricane (Mitch) hit the Central American countries and has been renewed over and over again, illustrating that there’s nothing temporary about these measures. Less than a year ago the Obama administration created an 18-month TPS for African Ebola nations, including Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. Judicial Watch will monitor it upon its scheduled expiration and report if it gets extended like many of the others.
