White House Announces Elimination of al-Qaeda Leader Operating in Yemen – Terror Origination for Pensacola Air Base Attack

by sundance{theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ During the State of the Union speech on Tuesday, President Trump remarked: “Our message to the terrorists is clear: You will never escape American justice. If you attack our citizens, you forfeit your life!”… al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) had taken credit for the terrorist attack at Pensacola Naval Air Station – Today the White House announces:“At the direction of President Donald J. Trump, the United States conducted a counterterrorism operation in Yemen that successfully eliminated Qasim al-Rimi, a founder and the leader of al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and a deputy to al-Qa’ida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. Rimi joined al-Qa’ida in the 1990s, working in Afghanistan for Osama bin Laden. Under Rimi, AQAP committed unconscionable violence against civilians in Yemen and sought to conduct and inspire numerous attacks against the United States and our forces. His death further degrades AQAP and the global al-Qa’ida movement, and it brings us closer to eliminating the threats these groups pose to our national security.” “The United States, our interests, and our allies are safer as a result of his death. We will continue to protect the American people by tracking down and eliminating terrorists who seek to do us harm.”  https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/02/06/white-house-announces-elimination-of-al-qaeda-leader-operating-in-yemen-terror-origination-for-pensacola-air-base-attack/  

Democrat Calls Pelosi “Partisan Troll”, Demands Her Resignation

By Kristine Javier{thepatriothill.com } ~ Democrats have called for House Speaker liar-Nancy Pelosi’s resignation after she ripped the President’s speech during his State of the Union Address… A law professor from George Washington University and a self-proclaimed Democrat, Jonathan Turley, called out liar-Pelosi as a “partisan troll.” Turley mentioned how different the House Floor representatives were years ago from liar-Pelosi’s temper tantrums. “The country was deeply divided, but both parties maintained the tradition of civility and decorum. I was struck how members, even in the heat of furious debates, would not attack each other by name and followed rigid principles of decorum. They understood that they were the custodians of this institution and bore a duty to strengthen and pass along those traditions to the next generation,” Turley said. Turley added “At that moment, she represents the House as an institution—both Republicans and Democrats. Instead, she decided to become little more than a partisan troll from an elevated position. The protests of the Democratic members also reached a new low for the House. liar-Pelosi did not gavel out the protest. She seemed to join it.” Turley finally concluded that liar-Pelosi ended the long-lasting tradition of civility during the State of the Union address. “It was the tradition of the House that a speaker must remain in stone-faced neutrality no matter what comes off that podium. The tradition ended last night with one of the more shameful and inglorious moments of the House in its history. Finally, Turley asked liar-Pelosi to resign. “For those of us who truly love the House as an institution, it was one of the lowest moments to unfold on the floor. That is why I argue in the Hill that, if liar-Pelosi does not apologize and agree to honor the principle of neutrality and civility at the State of the Union, she should resign as speaker,” Turley said. Another law professor Rep. Lee Zeldin, a Democrat congressman also called for liar-Pelosi’s resignation. “liar-Nancy Pelosi should step down as Speaker. I’m confident that the American public will be directly sending her that message themselves later this year if she doesn’t read the tea leaves herself and resign on her own terms today. It’s time,” Zeldin said…  https://thepatriothill.com/left-news/2020/02/06/democrat-calls-pelosi-partisan-troll-demands-her-resignation/?utm_source=sprklst&utm_campaign=patriothill-dems-02_06-mid  

Matt Gaetz to file ethics charges against liar-Pelosi, force a vote in House

By Charles Creitz{foxnews.com } ~ House Judiciary Committee member Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said Wednesday he will be filing ethics charges against House Speaker liar-Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. … over what he called her “temper tantrum” following President Trump’s State of the Union address the previous evening. Gaetz told Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle” that he will file the charges with the House Ethics Committee on Thursday. “liar-Pelosi disgraced the House of Representatives, she embarrassed our country and she destroyed official records. The law does not allow the liar-Speaker of the House to destroy the records of the House and the rules of the House do not permit some little temper tantrum just because you don’t like what the president of the United States says,” he said. Gaetz, Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., and other Republicans signed on as co-sponsors to a privileged resolution by House Appropriations Committee Ranking Member Kay Granger, R-Texas, to formally disapprove of loiar-Pelosi’s actions. Gaetz said that he is one of many Republicans who are tired of political double standards on Capitol Hill. He pointed to Rep. Joe Wilson, a South Carolina Republican who was reprimanded in 2009 for yelling out “You lie!” when then-President scumbag/liar-nObama claimed illegal immigrants would not be covered by scumbag/liar-nObamaCare. “The Democrats really brought the heat down on him,” Gaetz said, adding: “By the way, Joe Wilson was right. We ought to apply the same standards to the Democrats that they want to apply to us and there will be an ethics investigation to liar-Nancy Pelosi and we will start the ball rolling to have her censured.” “From the inside out, liar-Nancy Pelosi has been a poison,” added Zeldin, who joined Gaetz on the program. “She is now poisoning the House of Representatives and Congress and our country because they start off with her getting rolled by her far left, which is basically taken over the Democratic Party.” To that effect, Gaetz said the 79-year-old lawmaker has “some real impulse control problems.” The White House also reacted to liar-Pelosi tearing the speech earlier. The Trump administration had quickly responded to liar-Pelosi’s act of tearing up the speech. “Speaker liar-Pelosi just ripped up: One of our last surviving Tuskegee Airmen. The survival of a child born at 21 weeks. The mourning families of Rocky Jones and Kayla Mueller. A service member’s reunion with his family. That’s her legacy,” the White House tweeted, referencing individuals whom Trump mentioned during his address. Other lawmakers investigated by the House Ethics Committee include Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., and former Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y.  https://www.foxnews.com/media/nancy-pelosi-tears-trump-state-union-gaetz-ethics-charges

Trump Expands Drilling In Utah Two Years After POTUS Cut The Size Of Bears Ears National Park

by CHRIS WHITE{dailycaller.com } ~ The Department of Interior finalized a rule Thursday expanding drilling rights in Utah two years after President Donald Trump reduced the size of a pair of national monuments in the area… Trump cut the size  of the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante monuments in 2017, which created a firestorm of criticism from activists who said the president’s decision hurt Native American communities. Bears Ears and the Grand Staircase contain vast amounts of oil, gas and coal, as well as grazing land local ranchers hope to use for cattle. The areas excluded from monuments are protected by federal environmental laws, acting DOI assistant secretary Casey Hammond said in a statement. “With these decisions we are advancing our goal to restore trust and be a good neighbor,” he said Thursday. Trump’s move is destructive, activists argue. Conservationist groups sued the administration after the president announced the boundaries, arguing the 1906 Antiquities Act does not permit a president to revoke his or her national monument designations. The act allows a president to protect lands deemed archaeologically significant, activists say. “One of the wildest landscapes in the lower forty-eight states will be lost if these plans are carried into action over the next few years,” Stephen Bloch, legal director for the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, said in a statement addressing the decision.  His group was part of the lawsuit. Former President Barack scumbag/liar-nObama designated 1.35 million acres of the Bears Ears in December 2016 as national monuments. Trump’s 2017 decision to slash land released more than 90,000 acres of Utah land that was previously locked inside the monument.  https://dailycaller.com/2020/02/06/utah-trump-bears-ears-park-interior/?utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=11880

Newly discovered document points to missing $1.8 billion in Ukraine  

by theblaze.com ~ On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over a few of the findings he and the research team uncovered… while looking into the phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky, which led to the Democrats’ now-failed impeachment charade. Glenn explained that there were “things in the phone call that just didn’t make sense to us” that prompted them to dive deeper into the research process and to find out, once and for all, what happened to the $1.8 billion in aid that went missing in Ukraine’s largest bank. Jason revealed a bombshell discovery: an urgent letter from the Latvian government to the Ukrainians, which has changed the entire narrative about who and what was involved in the corruption going on in Ukraine. “This document … is the jumping-off point,” said Jason. “It shows you the path to follow the money.”Glenn explained how the money trails all tie back to a corrupt and brutal oligarch named Igor Kolomoisky. “This guy Kolomoisky is actually viewed in Ukraine … as a brutal, brutal oligarch. Nobody messes with him. Okay? Chainsaws to the neck. Nobody messes with him,” Glenn said. “But we also found out, there are a lot of people that view him as an extreme patriot. Now it gets interesting. Now it really starts to get interesting. Why is he a patriot? Because he’s a guy that buys arms, and funds armies. He’s a guy, when it comes to Russia, he’s a guy that happened to, as all of our money disappears, to go on a spending spree.”  https://www.theblaze.com/glenn-radio/ukraine-missing-aid

Prayers for Rush

 Gary Bauer

Please join in me in prayer for my friend Rush Limbaugh. America’s top talker shocked his audience yesterday with the announcement that he has been diagnosed with “advanced lung cancer.” Limbaugh said he has every intention of being on the air as often as he can, but will be absent from his show from time to time as he undergoes treatment. Godspeed, Rush. Millions of us will be praying for you every day!Endless Impeachment?After the Senate voted Friday afternoon to reject Democrat demands for additional witnesses, Sen. Chuck scumbag-Schumer and his progressive gang forced Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to drag out the impeachment debate so that a final vote won’t happen until Wednesday. The reason was obvious: Democrats wanted to force President Trump to deliver his State of the Union address with the cloud of impeachment still hanging over his head. I think Leader McConnell has handled the impeachment process about as well as he could have, and I doubt there was much more he could have done to stop scumbag-Schumer from delaying the final vote on the articles of impeachment. Yesterday, senators heard four hours of closing arguments from the House managers and the president’s defense lawyers. Now senators will begin delivering speeches explaining their positions, followed by final votes on the articles of impeachment late Wednesday afternoon. My prediction is that every Republican senator and as many as three Democrats will end up voting against impeachment. But as I wrote in Friday’s report, this won’t be the end of it. House progressives are vowing to press ahead with even more investigations of President Trump. By the way, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) warned that loose lips liar-Joe Biden, if he prevails this November, could be “immediately impeached” given the low bar set by House Democrats. Politics and the Super BowlFormer New York City mayor and billionaire political activist Michael Bloomberg ran an ad during Sunday’s Super Bowl game highlighting his desire to limit Second Amendment rights. It’s worth noting that Bloomberg paid at least $10 million for that ad. That speaks volumes about Michael Bloomberg’s priorities!But the ad was terribly deceptive. It featured the mother of George Kemp talking about her son, who was shot to death in 2013. The ad claimed that “2,900 children die every year from gun violence.” But George Kemp was not a “child.” He was 20 years old.The only way to get to the 2,900 figure is to grossly inflate it by including young adults up to 19 years old. Sadly, most gun deaths in urban areas are often teenaged gang members killing each other. When you exclude adults, the number of annual deaths is cut in half.The ad’s only useful purpose was to prove just how deceptive the left is willing to be. Progressives can’t make arguments without gross distortions because they have no confidence they can win an argument based on facts.In contrast to Bloomberg’s deceptive ad about limiting our constitutional rights, President Trump’s campaign ran an ad in the first quarter of the game promoting criminal-justice reform featuring Alice Johnson. The powerful ad shows just how serious Trump is about competing for black votes.Also proving he’s a good businessman who knows how to save money, the president ran a second ad just after the game officially concluded, so it cost significantly less. That ad touted America’s economic success under President Trump’s policies and promised that “the best is yet to come!”Unfortunately, there was one ad that Fox Sports refused to run. Click here to watch the pro-life ad featuring several survivors of abortion.Congratulations, Kansas City!I’m glad the heartland Kansas City Chiefs won over the 49ers from whacked-out San Francisco. Sadly, one of the low points of the game occurred when Beyonce and Jay-Z refused to stand for the national anthem. I suppose I should take heart that they didn’t kneel. Instead, they just sat there in their seats. They and their entourage spent more for those seats than many Americans will make in a year. What a contrast between the disrespect Beyonce and Jay-Z displayed and Col. Charles McGee, a Tuskegee Airman who was honored at the Super Bowl. McGee “stood up” for our country in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. There’s the decline in America. McGee and other Tuskegee Airmen sacrificed for their country at a time when there was widespread discrimination and segregation. Thanks to their sacrifices, Beyonce and Jay-Z have more money than 99.9% of Americans, and yet they’re still complaining about America.Christian Persecution in NigeriaThe persecution of Christians is getting significantly worse in Nigeria. At least 16 Christians were killed last month by militant Islamists. Among those killed was Pastor Lawan Andimi, who was beheaded by Boko Haram.Archbishop Augustine Obiora Akubeze, the president of Nigeria’s Conference of Catholic Bishops, is urging western nations to take action because the Nigerian government is turning a blind eye to the Islamist atrocities.  As many of you know, I was appointed by President Trump to serve on the U.S. Commission for International Religious Freedom (USCIRF). At USCIRF’s urging, the Trump administration added Nigeria to its “Special Watch List” of religious-liberty violators in December. I assure you, my fellow commissioners and I will continue to do everything we can to expose the persecution of Christians in Nigeria. In the meantime, please pray for our Nigerian brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering for their faith.  ~The Patriot Post
