Donald Trump Makes it Official: Trump Will Hold Rally in Downtown Phoenix, AZ … Maybe He Will Pardon Sheriff Joe and Endorse Primary Challenge Against Sen. Flake
PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE PEOPLE AND HOLD RALLY IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA …
President Donald Trump has made it official, he will hold a rally in downtown Phoenix, AZ next Tuesday. President Trump’s tweet read, “Join me at 7:00 P.M. on Tuesday, August 22nd in Phoenix, Arizona at the Phoenix Convention Center!” The Democrat Mayor of Phoenix asked Trump to postpone the event, The Donald took it under advisement and said, I don’t think so. President Trump will go around the bias, liberal media and talk directly to the America people. Look for President Trump to endorse a GOP primary challenger against Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) who has been nothing but a disappointment. Trump tweeted regarding Flake, “Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He’s toxic!” Also, it would be great is President Trump used this as the backdrop to pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a campaign-style rally in downtown Phoenix on Tuesday, making his first presidential trip to the West as his administration confronts an uproar over his tepid response to a deadly white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Trump will take the stage at the Phoenix Convention Center on Tuesday at 7 p.m., according to an announcement Wednesday morning. Attendees must register to obtain tickets.
Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton wrote in a statement Wednesday he was disappointed to learn of Trump’s visit so close to the violent events in Charlottesville. The mayor called on Trump to delay the visit. [...]
And Flake, who is running for re-election in 2018, this month published a book critical of “Trumpism,” calling for a “rejection of destructive politics and a return to principle.” Trump has threatened to help finance a Republican challenger to Flake — saying he’d provide $10 million — but it’s unclear if he will follow through.
The visit also comes as Trump has discussed a presidential pardon for another controversial Arizona Republican, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, 85, who has been convicted of criminal contempt after a judge found he had defied a court order intended to stamp out his signature immigration patrols.
AND THE MSM IGNORES THIS HUGE TRUMP WIN … PEACE THRU STRENGTH WORKS … NORTH KOREAN DICTATOR KIM JONG UN BLINKS!
FIRE & FURY, LOCKED & LOADED WON!!! As reported at the WSJ, North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened against Guam as previously stated. In a face saving moment, the the North Korean dictator warned that he could change his mind “if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions.” Who has been reckless? But the story that is going unreported is that President Donald Trump just had a huge foreign policy victory and the MSM acts like it never happened. Not only did the United States under President Trump win a 15-0 victory in the United Nations gaining further sanctions against North Korea, but Trump also go China to state that if North Korea attacks the U.S., China should remain neutral. In other words, North Korea would be on their own. HUGE!
President Trump was ridiculed by the LEFT, Democrats and the MSM for his actions he took against North Korea. Trump was called reckless by the media, not the North Korean dictator. Look who was correct and look who was wrong. TRUMP WAS RIGHT!
The report, published early Tuesday, could help dial back tensions that had spiraled last week following an exchange of threats between North Korea and U.S. President Donald Trump.
Mr. Trump warned Pyongyang last week that the U.S. military was “locked and loaded” and could engulf the North in “fire and fury,” while North Korea, through its state media, had threatened to fire four missiles in a bid to surround the U.S. territory of Guam in “enveloping fire.”
North Korean state media said in its report Tuesday that Mr. Kim had made his decision not to fire on Guam after visiting a military command post and examining a military plan presented to him by his senior officers.
While Mr. Kim said he had decided not to launch the attack on Guam yet, he advised the U.S. “to take into full account” whether the current standoff was to its benefit. He also said it was incumbent on the U.S. to “stop at once arrogant provocations against the DPRK and unilateral demands and not provoke it any longer,” using an abbreviation for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the formal name for North Korea.
“If the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the [North] will make an important decision as it already declared,” the report quoted Mr. Kim as saying.
CNBC - China hands Trump a win on North Korea crisis. In the end, China decided to back off their support at any cost of North Korea and agreed to state that they would remain neutral if North Korea Dictator Kim Jong Un was so foolish and reckless as to attack the United States with nuclear war. So why did China back away from what was their position on North Korea for decades? Was it maybe because Chinese President Xi Jinping was at a dinner with President Trump at the Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, when he got to see up close and personal how committed Trump was as President when he ordered 59 U.S. cruise missiles to rain down on a Syrian military airfield in response to what Trump had called “a disgrace to humanity.” The liberal media made a joke of it, but it sent a message to the adults in the room. Note to the LEFT, Peace through strength works.
What a difference a few days make.
After a weekend filled with a series of conciliatory statements from China, some of them downright surprising, the situation with North Korea seems to be less tense right now, which could be construed as a major win for the Trump team.
To be specific, the big move came Monday as China agreed to ban imports of North Korean iron, lead, and coal as part of new U.N. sanctions on Pyongyang. That’s hitting Kim Jon Un’s regime where it hurts.
But there was also the statement in the Chinese-run state newspaper Global Times on Friday that said that if North Korea attacks the U.S., China should remain neutral. In other words, they’d be on their own.
And there was even calming talk from this side of the Pacific. In a jointly-written editorial in Monday’s Wall Street Journal, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis both insisted the Trump administration is not seeking regime change in North Korea and wants a diplomatic resolution to this dispute.
While these developments do not fully constitute a real solution to the potential threats North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs pose to the region and the world, everyone’s nervous meter seems to have gone down several notches.
WHO HONESTLY THINKS THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED UNDER A PRESIDENT CLINTON, AND IT NEVER DID UNDER OBAMA.
LOCKED & LOADED!!!
President Donald Trump says that American military solutions are “locked and loaded” against the North Korea threats. President Trump tweeted Friday morning, ”Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!” Look for the liberal MSM to discuss the words “locked & loaded” all day instead of the actual threat that a foreign country is making against the United States of America and its citizens. Make no mistake about it, Donald Trump is not Obama. If he says “locked and loaded” that is what he means. He will, not like Obama, draw a faux line in the sand and retreat from it. If North Korea is stupid enough to initiate a missile attack, they will be dealt with severely. Even China has stated that they will remain neutral if North Korea acts first. Trump is obviously looking for a diplomatic way to end this crisis, but some times a dictator only knows fear, threats and force.
President Donald Trump issued another warning to North Korea on Friday with a reference to American weapons as being “locked and loaded.”
“Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!” Trump wrote on Twitter, a day after his defense secretary said the United States was ready to counter any threat from Pyongyang.
Look what has happened as the economy, jobs and the stock market have made advances and President Trump provides strong leadership in the situation with North Korea, his poll numbers are up to 45%.
More than 1.1 Million Americans Dropped Off the Food Stamp Rolls Since President Trump Took office in January 2017
MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN …
According to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) statistics on food stamp enrollment, more than 1.1 million Americans dropped off the food stamp rolls since President Trump took office in January 2017. Trump is not just making America great again with jobs, but also having Americans dropping off of food stamps. Unlike Barack Obama who was the Food Stamp president, Trump wants people to get jobs, become independent from the government and be self-sufficient.
Participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) dropped to 41,496,255 in May 2017, the most recent data available from the USDA, from 42,691,363 in January 2017 when Trump took office.
According to the latest data, SNAP enrollment during the first few months of Trump’s presidency decreased by 2.79 percent.
Food stamp participation on average in 2017 has dropped to its lowest level since 2010, and the latest numbers show that this trend is continuing.
Trump proposed cuts to SNAP in his 2018 budget proposal, suggesting that states match up to 20 percent of federal money allotted for the food stamp program and expand work requirements for able-bodied adults receiving food stamps.
Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration has also prompted many immigrants, both legal and illegal, to cancel their food stamps over concerns that they might be denied citizenship or deported.
Democrats Feeling the Pressure of the 2018 Miidterm Elections … Sen. Manchin (D-WV) is One of Three Senate Democrats who Didn’t Sign Party Line Letter on Tax Reform
25 DEMOCRAT & INDEPENDENT SENATORS WHO CAUCUS WITH THE DEMOCRAT PARTY ARE UP FOR REELECTION IN 2018, MANY IN STATES WON BIG BY TRUMP ARE FEELING THE PRESSURE, …
Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) and Joe Donnelly (D-IN) are among three U.S. Senators who did not sign the Democrat party line letter on tax reform. Although, Manchin hedged his bets and said he supported the fiscal ideas. Even though Manchin claimed his decision had nothing to do with politics or reelection, it had everything to do with it. What do these three Democrat Senators all have in common? They all are up for reelection in 2018 in “red” states that Donald Trump won big in 2016. Trump won West Virginia 68.6% to 26.5%, North Dakota 64.1% to 27.7% and Indiana 57.2% to 37.9%. So do you think Manchin, Heitkamp and Donnelly are not feeling the pressure to break from the Democrat party line? If they continue along the path of the far-LEFT leadership of their party, all will lose in 2018. Long gone are the days of the Blue Dog Democrats, this party is bordering on socialism these days.
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., is one of three Senate Democrats who didn’t sign a letter establishing the party line on tax reform, though he said Tuesday he agrees with all its components.
Manchin, who is up for re-election in 2018, said even though he supports the Democrats’ fiscal ideas, he won’t sign on without efforts to bring Republicans on board. He also said the election is not influencing his decision-making.
“The bottom line is, if it doesn’t help West Virginia, it doesn’t make sense to me, and just because there’s an election doesn’t mean I sign on or don’t sign on,” he said. “If you look at all the time I’ve been here, there’s stuff I don’t sign on to. I just don’t think it’s a good way to do business when you don’t try to get people from the front end.”
Sens. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., and Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., didn’t sign either. All three Democrats are up for re-election in states whose electorates voted for President Donald Trump by wide margins.
The letter was sent to Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and GOP Senate Finance Committee Chair Orrin Hatch. It outlines three main policy points: tax reform should neither increase the burden on the middle class nor lessen it on high-wage earners; it should go through regular Senate procedure, not a fast-tracked process like budget reconciliation; and it should not increase the federal deficit or cut programs like Medicaid.
When confronted by about his unwillingness to tote the party line Manchin replied with, “I don’t give a sh*t …” The reality is, Manchin, like the governor of West Virginia should probably think about changing parties. Or, the voters of WV need to vote him out of office as the Democrat party power-base does not. West Virginia has become a dark red state, so why would they think a Democrat Senator would serve them?
Because in the end, who is is his ear?
“I don’t give a s–t, you understand? I just don’t give a s–t,” he said. “Don’t care if I get elected, don’t care if I get defeated, how about that. If they think because I’m up for election, that I can be wrangled into voting for s–t that I don’t like and can’t explain, they’re all crazy.”
“I’m not scared of an election, let’s put it that way. Elections do not bother me or scare me. I’m going to continue to do the same thing I’ve always done, extremely independent.”
