TRUMP’S MASSIVE TAX CUT PLAN TO BE ANNOUNCED NEXT WEEK …
This is why Trump was elected president, he takes the lead … President Donald Trump surprised Capitol Hill, his staff and his own Treasury officials as Trump announced that he’ll be rolling out his tax package next week. Trump added that it will contain the largest cut in American history. President Trump continued to explain that businesses and individuals will be getting a ‘massive tax cut’ if his plan passes. Without going into detail, Trump asserted that it will be ‘bigger I believe than any tax cut ever.’ As the Right Wing News opines … “WOOT, WOOT!!!”
President Donald Trump says businesses and individuals will receive a “massive tax cut” under a tax reform package he plans to unveil next week.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Trump says the plan will result in tax cuts for both individuals and businesses. He would not provide details of the plan, saying only that the tax cuts will be “bigger I believe than any tax cut ever.”
The president says the package will be released on “Wednesday or shortly thereafter” — just before his 100 day mark in office.
President Donald Trump Helps Free Egyptian American Prisoner Aya Hijazi as Well as Her Egyptian Husband, Mohamed Hassanein
KUDOS TO PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR HELP MAKING IT HAPPEN!!!
The WAPO is reporting that Aya Hijazi, 30, a U.S. citizen, as well as her husband, Mohamed Hassanein, who is Egyptian, and four other humanitarian workers have been freed from an Egyptian prison. Hijazi was in Egypt running a nongovernmental organization that was seen as an anti-Egyptian scheme by Egyptian security officials. Hijazi and her coworkers were imprisoned on May 1, 2014 on baseless child abuse and trafficking charges. According to accounts they were subjected to “coercive interrogation techniques,” and their trial dates were either canceled or continuously postponed.
An Egyptian American charity worker who was imprisoned in Cairo for three years and became the global face of Egypt’s brutal crackdown on civil society returned home to the United States late Thursday after the Trump administration quietly negotiated her release.
President Trump and his aides worked for several weeks with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi to secure the freedom of Aya Hijazi, 30, a U.S. citizen, as well as her husband, Mohamed Hassanein, who is Egyptian, and four other humanitarian workers. Trump dispatched a U.S. government aircraft to Cairo to bring Hijazi and her family to Washington.
Hijazi, who grew up in Falls Church, Va., and graduated from George Mason University, was working in Cairo with the Belady Foundation, which she and her husband established as a haven and rehabilitation center for street children in Cairo.
The couple and their co-workers had been incarcerated since May 1, 2014, on child abuse and trafficking charges that were widely dismissed by human rights workers and U.S. officials as false. Virtually no evidence was ever presented against them, and for nearly three years they were held as hearings were inexplicably postponed and trial dates canceled. Human rights groups alleged that they were abused in detention.
President Donald Trump and his ability to work and talk with others. Barack Obama failed to negotiate their release with Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi. Thank you President Trump! Interesting though that Obama could find a way to free Bowe Bergdahl.
Trump apparently succeeded where former president Obama failed. The Post continues:
The Obama administration unsuccessfully pressed Sissi’s government for their release. It was not until Trump moved to reset U.S. relations with Egypt by embracing Sissi at the White House on April 3 — he publicly hailed the autocrat’s leadership as “fantastic” and offered the U.S. government’s “strong backing” — that Egypt’s posture changed. Last Sunday, a court in Cairo dropped all charges against Hijazi and the others.
According to White House officials, this wasn’t your classic Obama-era quid pro quo transaction or controversial prisoner exchange. Unlike Obama, who infamously traded five senior Taliban Gitmo detainees for U.S. army deserter Bowe Bergdahl in 2014, Trump personally oversaw Hijazi’s release and received assurances from Cairo that the prisoner release was a gesture of good faith.
We received “assurance from the highest levels [of Sissi’s government] that whatever the verdict was, Egypt would use presidential authority to send her home,” an unidentified senior administration told the Post.
DEMOCRATS, HOLLYWOOD AND THE LEFT POWER ELITE SPENT ALL KINDS OF OUTSIDE MONEY AND STILL COULD NOT WIN THE SPECIAL ELECTION …
Last night’s Georgia’s 6th District special election was touted as a referendum on President Donald trump and Democrats thought for sure they had this one. However, at the end of the evening Georgia’s 6th District special election would be heading toward a runoff. It will be Democrat Jon Ossoff vs. Republican Karen Handel. Much like the night of the presidential election with Hillary Clinton, Democrats thought they could win this one with 30 year old Jon Ossoff against a mass of other opponents. They hoped to take advantage of the special election and take a GOP House seat. They did not. Now that the race is headed to a one on one run-off election with a formidable candidate like Karen Handel, this seat will most likely remain Republican. Democrats tried to pour in all kinds of outside money to win this seat, including a candidate in Ossoff who does not even live in the district. They failed. What do Democrats do now? The runoff election will take place in June.
Roughly five hours after polling locations closed, major networks began projecting that Georgia’s 6th District special election would be heading toward a runoff on June 20.
That means Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel, the race’s top two vote-getters, will have nine more weeks of expensive and heating campaigning before voters will decide who will replace Tom Price, now Trump’s health secretary, as the representative for Atlanta’s affluent, leafy northern suburbs in the House.
Ossoff, a 30-year-old documentary film maker and political novice, told his supporters late Tuesday that a runoff “shattered expectations.” “We will be ready to fight on and win in June if it is necessary,” he said.
Earlier Tuesday evening, former Secretary of State Karen Handel vowed “start the campaign anew” on Wednesday, as her onetime Republican opponents began to coalesce around her. “Beating Ossoff and holding this seat is something that rises above any one person,” she told supporters.
For all the roiling anger and energy at the grassroots, the party still fell short in Georgia and Kansas. And Democratic prospects in upcoming elections aren’t promising.
For all the anger, energy, and money swirling at the grassroots level, Democrats didn’t manage to pick off the first two Republican-held congressional seats they contended for in the Trump era, and the prospects aren’t markedly better in the next few House races coming up: the Montana race at the end of May, and the South Carolina contest on June 20.
Their best shot at knocking Donald Trump down a peg appears to be Ossoff’s runoff against Republican Karen Handel, also scheduled for June 20. But the Democrat will be an underdog in that contest, when there won’t be a crowded field of Republicans to splinter the vote.
After that, it’ll be another five months before the New Jersey and Virginia elections for governor, leaving some strategists and lawmakers wondering how to keep the furious rank-and-file voters engaged in fueling and funding the party’s comeback — especially given the sky-high expectations that surrounded Ossoff’s ultimately unsuccessful run at the 50-percent threshold that was necessary to win the seat outright.
In many respects, why shouldn’t President Donal trump claim some credit for this? If Democrat Ossoff had won the MSM would have pronounced the Trump presidency over before it has even begun. If we are to take the opposite of what the LEFT and the MSM were spewing prior to this if the Democrat had won, then this is a huge victory for Trump. However, it is also a wake-up call to the GOP that nothing is for certain and they need to get their act in gear, do what they said they were going to do or … their base will not come out in off year elections.
WHAT NEXT WITH NORTH KOREA …
Vice President Pence, in the midst of a 10-day Asia trip, made an unannounced visit to the DMZ zone between North and South Korea as tensions between the U.S. and North Korea escalate. For too many years North Korea and their dictators have been allowed to get away with far too much and increase their nuclear capabilities. There is a new sheriff in town and a much different attitude in how to deal with North Korea. The VP stated with regards to North Korea, “the era of strategic patience is over.”
He said the relationship with South Korea is “ironclad and immutable” and reiterated the “resolve of the people of the United States and the President of the United States” to achieve security “through peaceable means, through negotiations.
“But all options are on the table as we continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of South Korea for denuclearization of this peninsula and for the long term prosperity and freedom of the people of South Korea,” he added.
He said he was hopes China would help solve the problem, adding, “we look for them to do more.”
“The message of the people of the United States of America is that we seek peace, but America has always sought peace through strength.”
Asked for a message to the people of North Korea, Pence said:
“The people of North Korea, the military of North Korea should not mistake the resolve of the United States of America to stand with our allies. The alliance between South Korea and the United States is ironclad.”
The vice president added that “the era of strategic patience is over.”
TERRORISTS, THERE IS A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN …
The U.S. military dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb in eastern Afghanistan just days after a Green Beret was killed fighting ISIS there.
