During the Commencement ceremonies at the US Coast Guard Academy, President Donald Trump praised the graduates and the Coast Guards fine work in defending the United States. He also took the opportunity to eviscerate the liberal MSM and their unfair treatment of his administration.
The president praised the 199 graduates for choosing to defend the country and their parents who raised them to pursue military service.
“These fine young cadets are about to take their rightful place on the front line of defense for the United States of America,” he said in a commencement speech at the academy in New London, Connecticut. “Cadets, you deserve not only the congratulations but the gratitude of each and every American, and we all salute you.”
It was Mr. Trump’s first commencement address to a U.S. military academy, and he went to lengths to highlight the important and unique role the Coast Guard plays in national security.
“Out of the five branches of our Armed Services, it’s only the Coast Guard that has the power to break through 21 feet of rock-solid Arctic ice, right?” he told the cadets. “You’re the only ones. And I’m proud to say that under my administration, as you just heard, we will be building the first new heavy icebreakers the United States has seen in over 40 years.”
President Trump provides a lesson to the Coast Guard graduates and some advice when dealing with pressure like the unfair actions of the MSM:
In a commencement ceremony at the Coast Guard Academy, Mr Trump said “no politician in history … has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down, can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.”
“Over the course of your life, you’ll find things are not always fair,” he said. “Things happen to you that you do not deserve and are not always warranted, but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight. Never, ever give up. Things will work out just fine.”
MY FIRST CHOICE IS LAURA INGRAHAM, BUT KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE IS A GOOD ONE AS WELL …
As per the Mercury News, could Kimberly Guilfoyle of FOX News be the next White House press secretary? A shakeup appears to be needed in the White House, especially when it comes to messaging and dealing with the liberal MSM. Would this mean Sean Spicer is out, or just reassigned to another position? One thing is for certain, Trump needs an individual who can go toe to toe with the media and be three steps ahead of them. That is why a Laura Ingraham or Kimberly Guilfoyle would be perfect. Much like Tony Snow did back during the GWB years.
It’s time to get the message back on track and have someone who knows how to do it.
Kimberly Guilfoyle, the former first lady of San Francisco and current Fox News host, is in conversations with the Trump administration about becoming White House press secretary, she said in an interview with the Bay Area News Group on Monday night.
Guilfoyle said the idea of her taking the job or another press role in the White House has been “raised by a number of people” in the Trump administration, although she declined to go into specifics. She noted that she’s regularly in touch with members of the administration in the course of her job.
“I’m a patriot, and it would be an honor to serve the country,” Guilfoyle said. “I think it’d be a fascinating job. It’s a challenging job, and you need someone really determined and focused, a great communicator in there with deep knowledge to be able to handle that position.”
You need to fight fire with fire and Trump more than anyone knows you don’t bring a knife to a gun fight. The media and WH press have been out of control and have one agenda, end Trump’s presidency. President Trump better start addressing this and making it apparent to the American voters that the Democrats and media are looking to overturn an election and fight back now.
Gregg Jarrett on Comey Memo: “Comey has put Himself in a Box,” … Why Didn’t Comey Present This Immediately as Required by Law?
ISN’T IT IRONIC THAT COMEY AND THE ELEMENT OF INTENT WOULD ARISE AGAIN AND DID COMEY COMMIT A CRIME BY NOT SAYING THAT TRUMP COMMITTED OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE …
Okay common sense thinking people, let’s take a look at what former FBI Director James Comey really did here without the sensationalism and gotcha of the liberal MSM. The latest attempt to bring President Donald Trump down comes from a so-called memo from Comey that was leaked to the NY Times. As Fox News Anchor Gregg Jarrett stated in his well thought out commentary below, “Comey has put himself in a box.” Why did James Comey not present this obstruction with justice claims when they happened as he is required to by law? Good question. Maybe because it either never happened or he felt that the comments did not rise to such a level, not was their any intent. So why now then? Well that’s obvious, sour grapes. This is Comey’s revenge. In the end, some one broke a law in all of this and it appears to be James Comey.
This leaked memo speaks volumes of what was in charge of the FBI
Under the law, Comey is required to immediately inform the Department of Justice of any attempt to obstruct justice by any person, even the President of the United States. Failure to do so would result in criminal charges against Comey. (18 USC 4 and 28 USC 1361) He would also, upon sufficient proof, lose his license to practice law.
So, if Comey believed Trump attempted to obstruct justice, did he comply with the law by reporting it to the DOJ? If not, it calls into question whether the events occurred as the Times reported it.
Obstruction requires what’s called “specific intent” to interfere with a criminal case. If Comey concluded, however, that Trump’s language was vague, ambiguous or elliptical, then he has no duty under the law to report it because it does not rise to the level of specific intent. Thus, no crime.
There is no evidence Comey ever alerted officials at the Justice Department, as he is duty-bound to do. Surely if he had, that incriminating information would have made its way to the public either by an indictment or, more likely, an investigation that could hardly be kept confidential in the intervening months.
But by writing a memo, Comey has put himself in a box. If he now accuses the President of obstruction, he places himself in legal jeopardy for failing to promptly and properly report it. If he says it was merely an uncomfortable conversation, he clears the president of wrongdoing and sullies his own image as a guy who attempted to smear the man who fired him.
Either way, James Comey comes out a loser. No matter. The media will hail him a hero.
Forget what the MSM says, James Comey is in a no win situation. He was duty bound by law to report such an obstruction of justice that the MSM is running with, yet he didn’t. He comes off looking small and smarmy trying to get his revenge for being fired. So we have an FBI Director who didn’t follow the law? The only thing we can surmise from all of this is that Comey thought anything Trump said was insignificant and that Trump broke no laws. Otherwise, why didn’t he act upon the so-called obstruction of justice when it occurred?

HOUSE FINALLY REPEALS OBAMACARE …
After campaigning on the issue for nearly seven years, House Republicans have finally passed a health care bill to repeal and replace the failed disaster known as Obamacare. The legislation passed 217 to 213 with no Democrats joining Republicans to repeal the failed Obamacare law. There were 20 Republicans voted no on the legislation. President Donald Trump praised House Speaker Paul Ryan and said he’s confident in Senate passage and predicted an “unbelievable victory.” “Trump went on to say, “As far as I’m concerned, your premiums are going to come down.”
Make no mistake about it America, Obamacare was a lie fed to you by Barack Obama and Democrats. Do I think this legislation is perfect, not a chance, but Obamacare was a failing disaster.
House Republicans on Thursday narrowly approved their sweeping health care bill aimed at fulfilling a campaign promise to upend ObamaCare, after resuscitating legislation that had flatlined on the floor not six weeks earlier.
The revised American Health Care Act passed on a 217-213 vote.
“We’re going to get this finished,” President Trump declared in a celebratory Rose Garden event, surrounded by Republican congressional allies shortly after the vote. He vowed premiums and deductibles will be “coming down” and the Affordable Care Act is “essentially dead.”
The passage marked Republicans’ biggest step yet toward replacing the Obama administration’s signature domestic policy law. The bill heads next to the Senate, however, where it faces an uncertain fate.
I can only hope that this is the beginning of really providing affordable and fair insurance coverage to Americans who want insurance. not forced to purchase government sponsored and unaffordable insurance. My person opinion having been in the healthcare field for nearly 30 years is that the fix should have been more market driven, not a spoon fed insurance plan. Individuals are going to have to start taking responsibility for their lives and stop depending on government, that goes for Republicans too.
Full White House Press Conference following House Repeal of Obamacare
Democrats were unable to stop the GOP vote aimed at President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement. But after the final vote was cast, they chanted “nah nah nah nah hey hey hey goodbye” to their Republican colleagues, with a few members waving, as they believe the vote will lead to many GOP lawmakers losing their seats in the November 2018 midterms.
Thursday marks a political milestone — one that has painfully eluded Trump and House leaders for months. The controversial health care bill delivered Trump the biggest political defeat of his short presidency in March, when the legislation had to be yanked from the House floor because it simply didn’t have enough support.
Under pressure from an antsy Trump looking to score a big political victory, Republican leaders tried again last week, hoping to to get to 216 votes ahead of the President’s symbolically important 100-day mark in office. That effort, too, failed.
